Shortly after Harlem's doors opened last September, a crew- of seniors and juniors began to assemble faithfully every day in Mr. Mann's room to commence work on this year's edition of the Meteor. Staff members had the responsibility of choosing a format, theme, and cover for the new collcgiatc-sizc annual; therefore, making the first few meetings important ones.
On Tuesday nights the entire crew met to finish up the week's work and hash over new ideas, while ever)’ seventh hour a handful of students congregated to labor on behalf of the Meteor.
After a two-week trial period, Mr. Mann was in a position to choose his right-hand "men”, the editors. As overseer (Editor-in-Chief) he singled out "Bill Throncburg,” known to most of us as Bill Thurmond. Designated as co-editors to work with him were Terr)' Shallcross, Sandy Townsend, and Al Markunas. Under the. enthusiastic command of these leaders, the real work of putting out this Meteor was quickly tackled. It appeared at times as though our editors had bitten off more work for us than we could chew; but as each deadline arrived, each person dug in with more vigor until the quota of material was finished and shipped off to the publisher.
The sound of Stan Turney yelling at the ad staff with the familiar, "All right, how many ads did you sell over the week-end?” and the heart-wrenching sight of Al berating innocent junior girls were common occurrences at the Meteor conclaves.
Although, as we were often reminded, the emphasis was supposed to be on work, there was always time for horseplay and laughter. As the final shipment of write-ups, pictures, and memories was sent off to the publisher, the staff could look with pride at our finished product, the 1965 METEOR.

Many additional activities added to a wonderful autumn of fun, among which were the trip to Northwestern University to the Tenth Annual Band Day; and. naturally, the sophomore "welcoming” part)', held on Mr. Luhman's farm near Belvidcrc. Highlighted by hayrides and a hayloft game called "sardines", the sophomores soon felt like real i.. mbers of the band.
With the football season behind them and Christmas on the horizon, the band moved indoors and immediately commenced work on the December Christmas Concert, presented jointly with the Harlem choral department.
The arrival of spring brought long hours of rehearsal in preparation for contest in March and April, as well as two spring concerts at the high school.
The band's final performance was a tribute played by the junior and sophomore members to the 1965 graduates. Band members nostalgically remembered the past year’s fun and hard work.
