This years Varsity G
Club, though rather
limited in number, was
nevertheless quite ac'
tive. They sponsored
the Football Homecom-
ing Dance, which was
put on at thc Junior High
Gymnasium, which made
it possible to have a
much larger crowd than
in past years.
The members sold "G-
cushion" to help finance
their annual dance later
in the school year. Any
boy playing a Varsity
sport was invited and
asked to bring a guest.
The G Club gave the
graduating Seniors, who
received one letter, a
pennant which stated
which sports he lettered
in and how many times.

The Spy Staff, along with Mr. Rogers, their sponsor, has put many long, hard hours
of work into the publication of this year's annual to record the happenings of Galion Senior
High for the 1955-56 school year. All the members of the Spy Staff gathered ads and patrons,
and each member had an opportunity to plan at least one layout. Page after page of contents
were arranged and rearranged to achieve the best possible results, for this year the Spy
must be the very best. We can truly say that into this Spy has gone the combined efforts of
the entire Staff.

The Lantern Staff got off to a flying start this year with their first edition which came out
October 21. Contrary to previous years and to the great surprise of the upperclassmen, the
first issue arrived on schedule. The inexperience of the staff plus a lack of time usually
causes a delay.
Some changes occured in this years publication which was edited by a staff of nineteen
girls and three boys. fB0y! What odds!J The title of the personality corner was changed
from "Lantern Lou" and Lantern Lem" to "Keyhole. " This was emphasized by placing the
snapshots in the outline of a keyhole.

The Pep Band is an essential component of our school spirit and morale Every member
must be in the Pep Club as well as the school band They play at every pep assembly and all
home basketball games and are a constant boost to our teams. They are under the supervision
of Mr. Fogt and practice long and hard after school and during some activity periods. In the
absence of Mr. Fogt, Charles Ryan assumes the duties of director. There are only six seniors
in the band and we can look forward to more of their great jazz and pep songs.

The Majorettes, in con-
junction with the Senior High
Band, presented fine enter-
tainment for Galion fans at
our football ames this year.
Under the able leadership of
Sue Tracht, they put in many
hours of practice. This was
quite evident by their fine
twirling and precise stepping.
At the homecoming game,
each majorette thrilled the
huge audience by the stupend-
ous twirling of fire batons.
As the end of the football
season comes to a close, we
can truly say that their job
was wel done. We are sorry
to see seniors Sue Tracht,
Ruth Jamison and Mary Helen.
Ott leave us, but we are con-
fident that the others will be
able to carry on and do a fine
job in the coming year.
