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 as Vista, Hardee's, Wendy's, and McDonald's. A few of us 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 offices. 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, most of us somehow managed to combine the two. It was just all a part of coping with life. E i ff ' ""

Spotlight on social Iye Partying was a major part of our year. School functions like football games and dances brought us all together, but it was after the games or dances that we broke into groups to "pa1tv." Groups of girls cruised around scouting for boys, while groups of guys parked their cars at Vista, Safeway or David's to girl watch. Sometimes we all ended up going to a party at somebody's house. We always managed to find something to do. Dating was a big part of high school life for some of us. Couples sometimes split the cost for eating out or going to the show or the drive-in, but some of us ended up watching T.V. at each other's houses to save money. fs? ' r., gif . Jw 'W' 4.5 .. "E x A ll X ,ff K 1 O DIE NA E OQGE OHFSUD 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 pigtails. 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. ,lf we- .ff
