DEDICATION We, the senior members of the Reflector Staff, wish to dedicate this 1970 Reflector to Mr. Donald Ficco. He has been a well deserving member of the staff for the past nine years. Mr. Ficco possesses a rather unique sense of humor which is regarded as strictly "Ficco.” Along with his perfection and neatness, Mr. Ficco is a most forceful, competent, and effective instructor. He is a fine example of a teacher devoted to his work. This tribute is little payment for the services he has rendered to us, both individually and as a whole, during our years at Ferndale. For this reason we would like to bestow this small token of gratitude. 23FACULTY ADMINISTRATION 6-7 Time comes and passes on. A new day dawns; then a week, a month, and the years fade into past memories that you gather in old age and cherish because the memory is the only link to the past. Clocks are the most representative physical symbol of time and the various types of timepieces tend to express different stages of life; grandfather clocks, children's clocks and wristwatches all have their own place in time, and suggest various activities during the school day and the school year.X MR.

This group met regularly with Mr. Baily, their advisor, to discuss problems and activities for this year. One main responsibility of the representatives was to keep their homerooms informed on decisions and proposals of the council. In turn, the student body gives their ideas and reactions of proposals to their representatives to be brought before council. Their major activities this year were: The clothing drive for the SAVE the CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION and the Viet Nam Christmas packages. SENIOR REPRESENTATIVES Row I: J. Callahan. Row2: P. Bock, S.

Being a member of the National Honor Society is the highest honor our school can bestow on a student. Each year the senior N.H.S. members conduct an induction ceremony for any junior and senior members who have met the qualifications. To be eligible for membership the students must be nominated and voted for by a faculty committee. 68 OFFICERS: Pres. M. Rummcl. V. Pres. T. Kcgg. Trcas. T. Muchesko, Sec. J. Mitchell.Row I: P.

VARSITY CLUB The boys who have had the stamina to endure long weeks of work and sweat to produce winning teams are selected to become Varsity Club members if they have lettered in one sport and participated in another. During "pledge week,” these boys are required to know all of the former team records and the present members who letter in them. The three days of "Yes, sir" and shoeshines leave many memories for these worthy boys. To them, it was well worth it to wear the emblematic jacket of Ferndale’s Varsity Club. 70 OFFIC.hRS: Sec. C.

CHESS The Chess Club provides a chance for those students who are interested in chess to better their skills in the game. Mr. Boerstlcr, their advisor, helped the club members in understanding more clearly the basic principles of chess. They compete among themselves during class periods. In this way, they get actual playing experience. 74PHILOSOPHY Discussing interesting and timely subjects such as, the Viet Nam conflict, the Philosophy Club gave students an opportunity to verse their opinions and ideas. Headed by Mr. Ficco, club advisor, and Judy Mitchell, president, the club chose a committee to interview prospective members. With the addition of these new members, the club hopes to cultivate an interest in society and the world. Row 1 P. Clark, A, McLaughlin, C. Allison, J. Jenkins. Row 2: Advisor: Mr. Ficco, C.

The School Board acts as a liaison between the people in the surrounding school districts and the school employees. Their job is not confined to simply an hour meeting each month but is a round-the-clock responsibility. The entire school would like to express our gratitude for a job well done.

Using the theme "From A Flower to a Garden,” the Junior class put many hours into planning and decorating at the Holiday Inn. When midnight came and the night was only a memory, each girl was a story-tale Cinderella and every boy a Prince Charming. Our school clock had run its course and created many new memories for the class of 70.
