The evening began with a banquet in the cafeteria, catered by -lody's of Nashville, featuring chicken-fried steak, smoked chicken, and all the trimmings.

Her family is both surprised and disappointed since they had hoped she would marry her local sweetheart, Jeff Scudder fMark Whisenhuntl. When Kaye's family learn that the Campbells are coming for a visit, they decide to put on a "hillbilly" act to frighten them away. The play was highly entertaining, and the Juniors did a fine job acting their parts.

Pictured below, they are Roy Hocker, Rick Simmons, King Relic, Mark Blocker, and Clark Davis. The team is made up of members from all areas of Montgomery County, coached by Mr. Chuck LaGrange.

Pine, who made it to the semi-finals of the state playoffs, showing that we did well in a tough conference. The Lions' powerful running attack was fronted by the quarterbacks Mark Davis and Kevin Wilson, fullback Phillip Whisenhunt, and halfbacks Lenny Fryar and Benny Weston. The quarterbacks' favorite targets were tight-end John Steward and split-end Scott Simmons. Five talented Lions made All-District Csee next pageb. Fan support was excellent, and games such as Mount Ida's thrilling 10-7 overtime victory over Magnet Cove provided an extra bonus of excitement. The players as well as Coach Stidman and the assistant defensive coach, Donald Phillips, put forth full effort to please their fans.

This year's staff has worked under the handicap of having no senior editor-in-chief and the mid-year loss of the senior elementary editor.

The excitement of yearbook arrival adds zest to the closing days of school. Everybody enjoys finding himself in the annual and collecting fond messages from his friendsg but only annual staff Workers can appreciate the meaning of Sherry's comment one day: "I can't die before the annual is completed. If I did, Mrs. Phillips would kill mef' may Some usual and a few very unusual incidents marked this school year. Snow and ice of catastrophic proportions caused many school holidays, nine and a half at this writing. Heavy snow flakes were greeted joyfully by Terry Cummings and Perry Majors, as they anticipated a short school day-and they were right. Soon the campus was covered by a beautiful blanket of white and soon thereafter was deserted. X 0i11 Q Qjg tk 1 X fred ,--., wa One of the pleasures of school life is a field tripfescape from the classroom and maybe some memento to bring back, such as this board of four whetstones procured from Smith's Quarry in Hot Springs. Members of the earth science class, Wanda Snow, Debbie Black, and Kim White, with teacher Mr. Ramage, make the presentation to Mr. Barrett. FFA freshmen initiation is expected to involve Work like polishing shoes, but who would have expected thisghours of scrubbing and scouring concrete at the lobby entrance where bottles of shoe polish were spilled! Work, pleasure, accomplishment go hand in hand, whether it is skillful control of a musical instrument tWanda Snow on the flutel or first place in a reading project tTim Smallwoodl. mm!! Then as the last spring days approach, everybody gets caught up in picnics, even board members like Bob Allen who fries the fish for the faculty. An unusual work-pleasure project is the sixth-grade circus Cspring '77J, featuring tall man Quinn Taylor and fat lady Marlene Scurlock.
