Spotlight on jobs
Money continued to be a necessity to most of us. As prices
rose, neither money from our parents nor the weekly
allowance managed to cover the cost of owning a car, buying
clothes, or paying for recreation.
Many of us began to realize this and 47070 of us found jobs.
Most girls around Emporia began by babysitting for one
dollar an hour while many boys delivered the Gazette for
about S75 a month. Then we graduated into the minimum
wage bracket: the scramble of the fast food restaurants such

finally managed to find jobs which were relaxing, offered
great hours. and paid above minimum wage, like those who
worked at jewelry stores, in camera shops, or in business
One problem did arise from making money: the dreaded
grade drop. Going to school and working took up most of our
days, and there never seemed to be enough time for
homework. Finally, grades began a nose dive. However,

While we partied, we really dressed up or we just wore
jeansg there seemed to be no "in-between." Jeans were still
the fad, but "baggy pants" were making an appearance. The
"preppy" look was just beginning for girls, with a plaid
pleated skirt, a white blouse with a little black ribbon at the
neck, a matching vest, knee socks and loafers. Guys
sometimes surprised everyone by wearing three-piece suits
to school. Few Emporia girls actually tried the Bo Derek look,
but several of us experimented with French braids or
No matter how much we partied during the weekend, we
always realized by Sunday night that the reality of school
would hit us again on Monday morning.
