This year, festivities began with a pep rally Thursday night on the football field. Fea- tured at the rally were the football team, cheerleaders, band, majorettes, and speaker— Mr. Robert Couch. On Friday, the day of Homecoming, classes and clubs decorated floats and cars for the parade using the theme— " M.H.S.—Cradle of Confederacy; Climb Over Calera.” The queen and her court, which are elected by the student body, were presented in the parade and again that night before the football game. The M.H.S. Bulldogs did “Climb Over Calera” with a rousing 34-0 victory. Afterwards the Alumni were entertained at a reception given by the senior class and attended the traditional Homecoming dance. The climax of the evening came with the presentation of the queen’s court—Becky Hicks, Delilah Smith, Langley Tolbert, and Cheryl Blackmon — and the crowning of Jackie Blakely as 1961 Homecoming Queen. Rick Frost, Student Council president, finds his assistance is needed as Queen Jackie gets ready for her royal role. ya yin r= 3 3 cap CA A Majorettes Higgins, Kyser, Hollingsworth, Mims, and Lucas pose before the big Friday afternoon parade.

BULLDOGS SCORE 9-I OPENER IS EASY WIN Montevallo’s high-geared offense, which exploded for 256 points in 1961, blasted off to a quick start as George Under- wood wriggled 69 yards to paydirt on the first play from scrim- mage in the initial win over Isabella, 54-0. After that the Bull- dogs made scoring look easy in their 17th straight victory. Butch Kyser blocked a punt, and Bobby Hyde raced 15 yards for a TD. John Starks went in from the five. Lee Barclay scored from the nine. Charles Warnke crossed the payoff stripe twice—once from the five and again from the 39, and Under- wood scored two more. WARRIORS FALL FIFTH TIME Montevallo traveled to Thompson for the second contest; and, when the battle was done, the cry of the Bulldogs’ tradi- tional foe was once again, “Wait ‘til next qm year.” The Bulldogs won 19-0. a Freddie Williams displayed his pass-inter- im ception talents, and Jerry Smitherman ac- [i quainted fans with the line’s speed as he caught Johnny Busby from behind when the Warrior back was well on his way for a TD. Underwood ran over all three Bulldog scores. CLANTON STOPPED COLD A staunch MHS defense held Clanton to nine yards on the ground as the Bulldogs took victory No. 19, 13-0. Underwood scor- ed both touchdowns. Kyser blocked a punt to set up the first TD, and two passes which Underwood threw to Warnke and Albert Scott paved the way for the second one. Jerry Smitherman, making his debut as kicker for the PAT, scored ,one for two.
