Responsibility is the one word
which pertains to every job on the
journalism staff. Every person must
take care of his or her responsibilities
or the staff suffers as a whole.
Two staffs work simultaneously
throughout the year, Reata and Anvil.
Heading the Reata staff was editor-
in-chief, Iunior Doug Middlebrooks,
and leading the Anvil staff was
editor-in-chief, Senior Susan Feigin.
As a traditional appointment,
Iunior Susan McBride was named
personal secretary to the Reata editor.
Susan McBride and the rest of the
writers worked on both Reata and
Anvil. "Writers work as hard as
anyone on staff, probably harder.
When Reata and Anvil hit them at
once, they had two and three stories,"
The other side of journalism,

Class, however, their work did not go
unnoticed. "Without the encourage-
ment of the writing stall, deadlines
would have been mentally impossi-

Some of Tomfordes duties as head
photographer were to issue photo
assignments and make sure deadlines
were met. "Photography takes much
time and without a dedicated
photography staff our yearhook staff
would not function," remarked
Another of Tomforde's duties was
management of the darkroom.
Although not of the highest quality,
this room is important to the
photographers. "The dark room can

to stay after school using the schools
"Often times I gave up part of my
social life trying to meet a deadline,"
