Approximately one hundred students participated in a snake dance, which started around 7:00 p. m. on the square and ended at the high school just before the bonfire got underway. Wally Gregory acted as master of ceremonies and introduced the various speakers. The cheerleaders led a few arousing yells, as did Watt Jones, who was on hand with the band. The boys' octet led by Vere Wolf sang two numbers. Friday noon, Homecoming Day all the classes and organizations assembled their floats in front of the high school for the traditional judging and parade through town. The Juniors' float placed first among the classes while the F.B.L.A, float was chosen as the best entry for organization. 3 agar .sis is 'V :J ,va 'H by A '- .' "'?'x'f 'Y 1 E , . t Z.

Music was furnished by Del Gilbert and his band from 9 P. M. till midnight. Red and white life buoys proclaimed "Moonlight Voyage" as the theme. The auditorium was decorated with portholes, anchors, ship's railing and Popeye and Olive. Hungry sailors patronized the G.A.A. food stand. Spring Reversal was a success with approximately 150 couples attending. The free ticket was awarded to Mary Ann Doty by the G.A.A. for selling the most tickets. Chairmen of committees were: Shirley Sprague, foodg Marilyn Cafin, clean-upg Ruth McFeeters, ticketsg Nancy Hawbaker, bandg Helen Harper, themeg Joyce Beckhart, decorationsg Donna Norton, publicityg Nancy Heath, tables.

X4 'V Junior-Senior Prom on May 15. The theme was "Heaven and Hades". The luscious meal was served by Sophomore girls dressed as angles and Sophomore boys dressed as devils. Helen Morfey sang "Ro- mance" followed later by John Howard's "Smilin' Through". Then came the clever hatchet oration given by Carolyn Smith of the Senior Class and Steve Burnside of the Junior Class. Following a local mens' quartet, came a skit entitled "Once on a Dark and Stormy Night". vi' At the dance, the Juniors and Seniors had to either enter into Heaven or Hades. In Hades they were welcomed by the "Devil" while in Heaven they were greeted by "St, Peter". After dancing for a couple of hours to the music of Joe Berns and his orchestra, the names of a king and queen were drawn from the Senior Class. King Adam was Richard Leach and Queen Eve was Juanita Woodall. A high school quartet sang "You Can't Get to Heaven." if Q wk iv: E N QA fu X S52 wwwgi fb DIQTICS 'E' k fc . .-.......-.. .....- ,.,.... ,.,.,, ..,, . , .

Head Coach. Don Wilt. in his first year at Monticello, got the lwst out ot' the boys in bringing them through to a 13-14 win and lose record. The high point of the season was the Okaw Tournament in which the Sages placed second. They also lied for third place in the Okaw Conference race. In the Regional tournament. the Sages came as close to defeating Deland-VVeldon as any team did until they were topped by Danville Schlarman in the Sectional Finale.

RE ERVES in The Monticello reserves, coached by Coach Bill Brady, won eight games and lost twelve last season. This was Mr. Brady's first year as coach of the reserve team. This team got off to a good start, winning three out of their first five games, then they hit a losing streak. After they snapped out of this, they played better ball for the rest of the season. They had a lot of exciting ball games, winning some in the last few minutes and losing a few the same way. The players and their positions were: Don Summers, Don Dubson, Larry Rogers, Ronald Dean, and Gayle Day, fowardsg Jim Cafin, Harry McClure, Jim Walden, Jim Mooney, Dick Warner, and Kenneth George, guardsg Sydney Dresback, Dick Hubbartt, and Dale Huisinga alternated at center. These boys have a lot of height and scrap. Also, they will be fighting for a varsity berth next year. The tabulation of scores: Monticello Unity ......
