DAYING FOIQ T E DICAVU E
Many oT The sTudenTs here aT John Greer have been won-
dering aloouT The way in which The Picayune inTends To pay
Tor iTseIT. There are abouT Three answers To Their quesTion:
The carnival which was given in The gymnasium aT The TirsT
OT The year, The Donkey BaskeTbaII Game, and The Picayune
The carnival, as The John Greer sTudenTs remember, was
one oT The rnosT successful evenTs oT The year. The evening's
program had been well-planned, and The Speech classes had
cooperaTed in The preparaTions To help make iT a Iong-remem-
bered occasion. There were several games, a marriage booTh,
The crowning OT The king and queen oT John Greer, a reTresh-
menT booTh, a side show, dancing, and a iiTTerbug conTesT.
In order To parTicipaTe in The games, wiTness The side show,
and voTe Tor candidaTes Tor The king and queen, TickeTs Tor
each evenT were sold aT Two cenTs each. In The mosT imporTanT
evenT oT The evening Gene Myers and Jean OTT were crowned
king and queen.
The Donkey BaskeTbaII game drew a capaciTy crowd, which
Tilled The gymnasium beTore The TirsT quarTer oT The game
was over. The John Greer Team played hosT To The veTerans oT
World War II and an exciTing as well as humorous game was
enioyed by everyone presenT.
The adverTising Tor The Picayune was soliciTed by Jack
Fisher, John Paul Leigh, and Roy Powley, These boys used
Their Tree periods To geT The adverTisemenTs Trom The local
The Picayune sales will also help Take in The needed money.
Only 200 year books had been ordered aT The beginning oT
The year, buT IOO more were ordered laTer so ThaT anyone who
wanTed one would noT be disappoinTed.

PGV? 26 The 1947 Picayzme
There's The gun. IT's half-Time aT The TooTbaII game. A
whisTIe pierces The air, Then comes The raTTIe oT drums, Tol-
lowed by The gIiTTer oT Tlashing baTons as The Twirlers Iead
The band onTo The Tield, column by column. A good marching
band is a sighT To behold, and iT was To be seen aT every
game played aT Honeywell Field This year. Every J. G. sTu-
denT had good reason To be proud of each perTormance
which The 43 blue-clad members gave. .
The band has been quiTe acTive This year, playing Tor The
summer concerTs Ias+ summer, appearing several Times aT
Chrisfmas, and playing Tor every baskeTbaIl game aT The high
school. They even played Tor a circus.
AT a Halloween TooTbaII game There was a special sTunT
beTween The halves. ATTer forming The opposing Team's IeTTers
and playing Their IoyaITy song as They aIways'do, The band
made a circle and marched slowly To The accompanimenT of
weird music, dim yellow IighTs, and awful, Terrifying screams.
AT The beginning oT The year. officers were chosen as Tol-
Iows: Jack Fisher, presidenT: Bill Thomas, vice-presidenT: and
DoroThy Dawson. secreTary-rTreasurer. These oTTicers, TogeTher
wiTh Mr. Jensen, The direcTor, have worked ouT a poinT-award
sysTem whereby Those wiTh a ToTaI oT 9O'Z1 oT all possible
poinTs, IO Tor baskeTbaII games, 20 Tor TooTbaIl games, and 30
Tor special occasions. will receive special awards. As Their
years in band mounT up, so will Their awards. The only award
which we are able To give Them is Three cheers Tor Their fine
enTerTainmenT all year.
"IT's Wonderful, So They Say." WhaT's wonderTuI? Why,
The John Greer OrchesTra, of course. JusT lisTen To iT awhile,
and you will Think so, Too. When They play some of Those
dreamy songs like "The Old LampIighTer", and "All Through
The Day", you can hardly keep from "swooning."
"Who" is in The orchesTra This year? IT is made up oT Roy
Powley, who plays saxophone: Beverly I-Tix. saxophone, Joanne
Cline, saxophone: Bob GaTreII, saxophone: Dale Ferrell,
TrumpeT: Jack Fisher, TrumpeT: John ElIioTT, TrumpeT: PaT
Regan, Trombone: Raymond Silver, Trombone: Bill Thomas,
piano: and Fred Green, drums.
The group pracTices during The TiTTh hour on Tuesdays and
Thursdays. Usually. some oT The girls who have P.E. ThaT pe-
riod came running in and shouT, "OhI Mr. Jensen, have The
orchesTra play someThing TasT so ThaT we can dance." So, The
orchesTra swings ouT wiTh "Johnson Rag", "Every Tub". or
someThing really groovy.
The orchesTra has made several appearances This year: The
Picayune Carnival, The Spanish Club Dance, The SpoTIighT
Dance, and aT The P.T.A.
Mr. Jensen has charge of The orchesTra and he has been
able To give Them valuable help. The group, besides prac-
Ticing during school Time, has also had several pracTices dl'
nighT. As you no doubT will agree--"SweeT and HoT, ThaT's
WhaT They've GoT."
Music and more music! ThaT's whaT The Choral Club, con-
