a series of events occur. Some of the events are the
same. some are new. but one thing that remains con-
stant is that they take people to make them happen. This
year Governor Dummer has had the calibre of people to
make the school go. lt has had a balance between good
and not so good. There will always be those who refuse to

but this year somehow these people have not been a
hindrance to the smooth operation of the school. The
abundance of leadership in the senior class. and the
overwhelming numbers of people who commited them-
selves this year in one way or another, have made it DOS-
sible to disregard that minority of non-doers. lt would be
foolish to say that the amount of drinking or pot smok-
ing decreased but the vein and frame of mind in which
these activities occurred was different. The attitude this
year was more one of fun rather than escape from the
school or in hatred towards the school. Tl'llS. of coure, in
no way excuses the breaking of a rule. but this author
contends that the attitude towards the act is also

thing to note about this year is that people seemed to

People seemed kinder to one another. The struc-
ture and rigidity between the classes seemed to have
been less prevalent this year. Seniors talked and
played with members of other classes as equals: all
of the classes seemed to mix well, almost to the point
of complete assimilation of grade levels. The adjust-
ment to a new Headmaster was in no way unnatural.
In the beginning lVlr. Ragle and students clashed alit-
tle, but as we grew to know him and he to know us
things began to operate as they should. Athletics,
while not dominating the school, played a part in
most everyones life. On the freshman level there was

this year was a good one, he has not read very much.
The key words were friendship and commitment.
The faculty were a special breed of people this year.
Mixing all the old faithfuls with a bit of new blood
caused a balance that was not only inspirational in
the classroom but responsible for the brewing of
dedication in the students. A school will always oper-
ate better when everyone concerned does more than
asked of him. The faculty and the students this year
have made a combination that was unbeatable: two
dedicated forces working toward a better school and
community. A promiment faculty member once

One might still ask, what has this year been?The
answer for most of us lies within, but for the most
part it has been a year filled with commitment and a
year where more personal relationships have blos-

school years to come can be as meaningful to the
individual as this one. It is through the individuals
satisfaction that the satisfaction of the group is
