When we push open those doors to Mount Ida High School, we know that in the corridors and classrooms, and on the athletic courts and fields, we will meet with many important experiences. Some will improve our mindsg some will enlarge our social livesg some will influence our moral judgements-all will touch our personalities and help shape our futures. In one sense, we might look on Mount lda Schools as a bank that will pay us certain dividends in life. What will they be? Will we receive some friends, but also some enemies? some successes, but also some failures? some sadness, but also some happiness? Yes, we know that from our school experience, we will reap some of all this. And we look forward to receiving all these "dividends," knowing that out of the whole we will have enriched our lives always. MT. IDA SCHOOLS Number if MT. IDA .

The old gym was transformed from peeling paint to a rose garden within a few days. The evening began with a delicious meal con- sisting of chicken, ham, potato salad, baked beans, and much more, followed by dancing in the redecorated gym. Wake Band played and everyone danced and sang along until they were breathless. The night that was to be long remembered was taken home with some people as the old gym was stripped of its rose trees and other decorations for souvenirs.

Junior Play TAKE IT EASY is a three-act play set on a warm fall after- noon in the living room of Mrs. Imanda Highgate's home, Highgate House. Mrs. Highgate is an absent-minded woman who hires two painters, one for the kitchen, Lon Torence, and one to paint her portrait, Tom Lawrence. Then a jewel thief shows up, John Florenz. Mrs. Highgate was confused before, but now she really is. There are now three painters running around her house. The whole play kept the audience confused, but in the end it was a big success.

Homecoming 1976-'7 7 Homecoming Spirit was high all week. Royalty and band practiced on the field for the big night only to be forced in- doors by the miserably cold rain on Friday. The decorations, which were to be on the football bleachers, had to be moved and the activities transferred to the gym. Even though there was plenty of confusion, the activities were a success. Then came the game. Even with the bone-chilling rain coming down on them, the Mt. Ida Lions pulled off anotherl win. Our opponents, the Glenwood Tigers,were defeated 20 to 6. Homecoming 1976-1977 was a big success. 20!Activities lt was a close race in "Pulling for the Lions." Mr. Robbins and Miss Green triumphed.

Quarterback Mark Davis received a knee injury in the second game and was out for the season. Minor injuries affecting starting players occurred nearly every game. Much credit goes to Don Phillips for his voluntary assistance to the offensive and defensive lineman. His knowledge of blocking strategy and technique greatly im- proved the young players.

This year we have a new form of newspaper, as shown at left. Instead of being mimeographed, it is printed by the Backroom Press in Hot Springs. Two new features of the paper are the use of pictures and the addition of a teacher spotlight section. The paper also contains senior spotlights, class news, and other items pertaining to student interest.

Every year the job is hard and time consuming. This year in particular, because of lost school time for bad weather, many staff members stayed after school as well as spending vaca- tion time travailing over the annual in the Board Room. In the end, the final edition of our annual is well worth all the effort we put into it. Each summer annual staffers try to attend a workship at the University of Central Arkansas at Conway. Four of those who attended last year are shown on the UCA campus in the picture on the facing page, TOP LEFT: Gregg Geatherston, Margie Watkins, Tammy Greeson, and June Scott. Also attending were Patricia Young and Mrs. Phillips, sponsor. l .a 42!Organizations Junior Staff Each year an assistant editor for each section is chosen to help the senior editors and to be trained for the job the following year. The selections are made in the spring of the sophomore year. Students that are interested write a letter of application to Mr. Barrett, stating their qualifications for a position on the Annual Staff. Mr. Barrett and Mrs. Phillips review the letters and choose the new assistant staff members, who will later move into senior positions.

FFA-FHA Barbecue Each spring the FFA and FHA give a barbecue chicken dinner in honor of their parents. Work for the barbecue starts weeks in ad- vance when the FFA boys and Mr. Watkins cut the wood to allow time for proper drying. The home economics classes spend several class periods preparing the barbecue sauce, beans, salad, and bread. On the morning of the feast, the FFA members start the fire at 6:30 or 7:00 o'clock. Later the FHA girls and Mrs. Prince arrive to direct the slow cooking and basting of the chicken. The enjoyment of all this preparation is evidenced in the pictures below. 54!Organizations Glee Clubs The Glee Clubs are voluntary organizations of students who wish to further their knowledge in music and im- prove their vocal talents. This is the first time in the last few years that we have had glee clubs. They are organized in two groups, junior high and senior high girls, who meet during their P.E. periods each Thursday under the direction of Mrs. Frances Jones. They gave several concerts this year, that were enjoyed by all.

Organizations!55 Library Club The Library Club is composed of assistant library workers. The job of library assistant is no easy one. Students have to give up their regular study hall period to work in the library. Their duties consist of checking books in and out, shelving the books properly, helping students find materials, and taking care of fines. We have an excellent library here at Mount Ida High School. Because of the good work of our library assistants, our library is a valuable asset to every student.

We are fortunate to have the well-qualified and loyal people in our administra- tion who strive to prepare us for a place in our society. The administraton of Mount Ida schools have numerous responsibilities to school patrons, faculty, and students. If these responsibilities were not carried out, the school would suffer. But having the responsible administration that we have makes Mount lda schools a good place to attend. We want to thank the administration for the many un- selfish deeds they have done for us during the years we have attended Mount Ida schools and for the outside activities they have sponsored. We want to thank Mr. Barrett, Mr. Robbins, and Mr. Foshee for their concern for our well being. They have the most demanding jobs because they have to handle all the problems affecting faculty, students, and parents. They are always there when we need them for an important decision. We thank our administration for everything.

Mrs. Short Retires At a special assembly on November 24, 1976, Mrs. Virginia Short was honored by the student body, faculty, and administration. Ill health forced her retirement prematurely, although she has a long record of service and achievement behind her. Mrs. Short began teaching at age seventeen in the Gaston community. Next she taught at Liberty, Alamo, and Sims before coming to Mount Ida junior high in 1951 and later to senior high school. At various times in her tenure at Mount lda, she taught senior high English, junior high English, social studies, and served as librarian. She taught thirty-six years, twenty-nine of which were in the Mount Ida schools. Whatever courses she taught, Mrs. Short exercised her unique talent of relating individually to each student and drawing the best out of each one, both academically and behaviorally. We never knew of Mrs. Short's having a serious discipline problem. She was dedicated also to su p- porting students in their extracurricular activities, serving as junior and senior sponsor and Library sponsor many times during her career. Mrs. Short's retirement leaves a vacancy in the affec- tions of us all at Mount Ida High School. We pray for im- provement in her health that she may have a happy retire- ment and visit us often. MK AT TOP LEFT, Betty Rowland presents Mrs. Short a bouquet of roses and money. MIDDLE LEFT, Mr. Barrett presents her a diamond and garnet ring from the faculty. BOTTOM LEFT, we see Mrs. Short in a typical classroom scene prior to retirement. ABOVE, Jim Stroope awards her a gold locket.

As we leave our school experience behind, we take with us those friends and enemies made here.

Closing!111 Principal Buildings On Elementary And High School Campuses at w-1UlIrnwwJ'7-L The buildings PICTURED ON THIS PAGE have been the setting for significant ex- perience in our lives. In the Ben Cravens elementary building PICTURED ABOVE, most of us began our school life. In addi- tion to basic education, we learned to make friends, follow rules, respect authority. As we moved into the senior building across the ravine QPICTU RED SE- COND FROM TOPl, we enlarged our un- derstanding about the world we live in and our privileges and responsibilities in society. The cafeteria QTHIRD FROM TOPl has recently undergone complete interior re-decoration. Some of our education was specialized, as represented by the vocational agriculture building PIC- TURED BOTTOM LEFT. In the new gym, at BOTTOM LEFT, we developed our bodies to fullest potential as well as stretching our character to include fairness and sym- pathetic understanding. Here we learned to live with success and failure. All these building provided the setting for our varied school activities, whose dividends we will continue to receive all our lives. ymiyp wfim J 'KM Qilfyff k DAU, V?gc if 7 X 3965, ' A 4 M 4255 ,f iw WQQML7 wfilffwafwfmu ENUM BDOQM WV 'qwbJ,pWJf mi fww mMMfwf7WMy q 009 Lil 41 Jw, 141051, A AQ f Qwgf UQ VWQQ 5 p X1 W W ,N W Q 01140 J. -J pw what 5 X 45115 'Ang , will ww 'JCXCQX A jf ELK 71D fcaigfn if Q ox XL?
