LOCKERS ARE A MECCA for gabfests, a cache for every¬ thing. t VEN IF THE CLASSROOM’S BUSY PROG¬ RESS furnishes us with Senior’s “raison d’etre,” no one believes that only light and trivial affairs transpire outside classroom walls. From earliest arrivals to the last de¬ parture each day drama is unfolding in every corner of this great expanse. What could be more vital than friendships made among the groups and couples that stand, wander or rush about Senior’s halls? Or more important than exchanging notes on how to charm a boy friend or what happen¬ ed last night? What sound sets off more meaningful activity than bells that release us from a classroom’s confines? Drama unfolds in senior ' s Take lunchtime, for instance. The jangle of a bell echoes down tiled halls, a signal for a flood of people to stream toward every THE LUNCHTIME BELL signals the fast take-off for some hamburger heaven. Right: No school day can ever get underway till the gang is up-to-date on last night’s events.

AN UNEXPECTED FIRE DRILL provides a short respite from class, reveals the training and restraint of Senior ' s students. favorite teacher’s line, to stand wearily in the auditorium to get checked out, to stand again endlessly for the most strategic lock¬ ers. These locker lines stretch out from Mr. Johnson’s window for days. By the time they shrink to reasonable proportions, whirligig pictures are being made and there is a continuous stream of subjects to the new gym and back again. Even the weatherman cooperates, and two weeks see the job completed with a minimum of rain- dampened coiffures. By now out-of-town games are drawing bus loads of Whirlie fans on Fridays. And all week long Senior is a bazaar, where varied goods are offered to or urged upon every one, on every side. Most of them yield funds destined to pay for class sections in this 1956 WHIRLIGIG. CLASS PROJECTS to raise Whirligig fund bring oul the best in salesmanship. WARM SCHOOL SPIRIT prevails on out-of-town football trips.

OUR SCHOOL STORE, almost too convenient, is constantly breaking sales records, always has the school supplies we need hallways and parking lot exit, one thought uppermost—food. Many scurry to the parking lot, pack sardine-like in cars of every model, and with dust and speed scratch off to Sunset. There amid jingling cash registers and clattering dishes they devour their lunches and straggle back to school. Meanwhile, other students stage their own stampede. Swarming to the cafeteria, they stand in endless lines for a lunch they gulp down in a racket of clanking milk bot¬ tles and presistent hum of voices. The wanderers drifting back to the campus join those from the cafeteria, clus¬ tering in patches to chatter animatedly. A few exchange this noise and gaiety for the solitude of the auditorium, where they pre¬ pare with scholarly or desperate seriousness for the next class. Suddenly the bell is again a signal. This time groups explode, each person going his own way, and leaving in the halls a linger¬ ing echo of the last word or sigh or iaugh. OUR PARKING LOT reeked of dust, pines, gasoline, mystery. 13
