CRAZY BUT CUTE " Crazy But Cute, " a three act comedy, presented by the Senior Class, takes place in the rumpus room of Danny Dover, age fifteen. Dan ' s mother thinks it ' s time he behaved more socially with nice young girls and gives a tea party to celebrate. Dan messes everything up by coming in through a window wearing a home-made diving gear over his head. Dan ' s mother, easy going father, and glamorous cousin all get him dates for the celebrated Surf Club dance. To Dan ' s surprise, he finds himself with three dates that he doesn ' t really want at all. Finally, after much confusion, Dan doesn ' t go to the dance at all, but rather abalone diving. " Hold that. Gotta run this wire through this hose, " explains Killo.

Presenting them with their awards is the High School Principal, Mr. Laurent. The students are: Linda Anderson, Alan Erickson, David Bird, Ted Underwood, Pauline Weeds, Jane Bush, Sharon Spedoske, Linda Stiles, and Gary Miller. All the Seniors were required to plan and cook a meal in Psychology class. This group treated Miss Ryzenga to a REAL meal. The group consists of Gary Hopkins, Tony Linn, Paul Johnston, and Alan Erickson, who is taking the picture. The Seniors, with the help of Mr. Beaton, organized a new club which helps the students plan their future goals regarding college. It is called HEP, which stands for higher education planning. Shown is the Senior branch of the organization. 72 One of the ways the Seniors helped fill their treasury was by sponsor- ing dances. Here, Seniors Linda Anderson, Kathy Moore, and Mar- lene Koehn, sell tickets at one of the dances. Varsity cheerleader Gayle Crandall displays a real " win- ning spirit " at one of our basketball games this season. Linda Stiles did a real clever pantomime act at the annual Christmas program. The selection was Roger Miller ' s " Chug-a-Lug. " Mr. Laurent presents Kathy Moore with her Valedictorian award for highest honors at M. S. H. S. Mr. Laurent also presented awards to Sue Shaffer, Salutatorian; and Gary Hopkins, Honor Student. The speakers table is shown waiting for dessert after they had enjoyed a delicious meal of turkey and trimmings, mashed potatoes, peas, salad, rolls, cake, and ice cream. JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET ENJOYED BY ALL Toastmaster Ron Crandall kept the program moving and interesting at the Junior-Senior Banquet. Everyone especially enjoyed the rivalry which arose between the Juniors and Sen- iors when the welcome and response were presented. The Sophomores were honored with the privilege of serving at the banquet. Shown is Rose Webster waiting table. The Prom was well attended. Shown are some of the couples dancing under the new sphere which was recently purchased by the Student Council. IN THE MISTY MOONLIGHT Karen Thompson, Bill Chapin, Ardith Dysard, and Mike Creighton relax with refreshments, and music provided by the Starlighters, a sixteen piece dance band. A few of the Juniors who helped plan and organize the Prom in honor of the Seniors are shown enjoying the festivities. Two of the couples take time out to enjoy a ride on the swing, which was one of the biggest highlights at the Prom.

NOT THE SUNSET, BUT THE DAWN. The entire Senior Class stands and sings " Moments to Remem- ber, " a song whose lyrics were especially arranged for the Seniors. ' ftJK B « ■? j ■ H H 1 Mr. Erickson presents the first diploma awarded to the Class of 1965, to Toddi Meyer, the first foreign exchange student at Morley Stanwood High School. The Seniors have a chance to relax and get some fresh air before they must march. Gary Hopkins and Ron Kelly make last minute arrangements of their appearance before the Commencement exercises begin. Dr. Victor F. Spathelf, President of Ferris State College, gave the Commencement address. He encouraged more of the Seniors to further their education through College by illustrating what effect education will have on the future. Jane Bush and Larry Rushmore lead the Seniors to the stage and the climax of their thirteen years of schooling. 77 :; ??sr ..! Fifty Seniors and four chaperons visited the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Capitol i Building, White House, Wax Museum, Arlington Cemetery, President Kennedy ' s grave, ' Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Archives, and the Smithsonian Institute. SENIORS VISIT WASHINGTON D.C. r ? " While in Arlington Cemetery the Seniors pause to view the grave of the late President Kennedy and his two children. The grave side is freshly stocked with flowers daily. A Washington, D. C. policeman holds up traffic while the Morley-Stanwood Sen- iors cross the highway in front of the Capitol Building. 78 Some of the Seniors " check over " the various types of missiles and rockets at one of the many sections of the Smith- sonian Institute. Don Ellison appears to be " a fish out of water. Don actually is in the middle of a dive at the pool of the luxurious Park Arlington Motel where the Seniors stayed in comfort. The Seniors take a rest before boarding the buses for more tours and more steps! When the Seniors weren ' t right on schedule, they ended up waiting in line at Scholl ' s Cafeteria. The wait was worth it because the food was ex- ceptionally good. Gayle Crandall, Roger Friesner, .Kay Knestrick, and Gary Hopkins, rest for a minute in the warm sunshine before entering the Museum of History and Technology. Everyone is bright and cheerful and not at all tired! ? Most of the Seniors wisely used the bus riding for rest but, of course, there were a few who used it for other things. i MORLEY LUMBER COMPANY Bu i Id ing Mater ial s Quality Lumber Free Delivery Anywhere See us for: Paint W i ndows Doors Wal 1 Panel ing Ce i 1 i ngs Ti le Etc. . .
