Four days packed with excitement, competition,
and hilarity marked Homecoming, 1972. Under
Chairman Mark Roetcisoender, classes plunged into
activities with spirited determination and enthusiasm.
Beginning with the tradition of Lettermen's Day,
the more imaginative side of dress came about as the
week progressed. Greeted by peppy painted windows
at the cafetorium, students began Monday with the
tense excitement of Coronation. To the strains of
"Only a Beginning," played by the MVHS stage
band, Queen Linda Patterson was spotlighted into
the scarlet and pink bedecked gymnasium.
Tuesday was Stunt Day, when a colorful mob
including hopeless cripples, Indian squaws, gang-
sters and squash heads lined the track as Seniors
showed their superior strength in the car push.
Things got a little wet as classes combatted in the
Tug-of-War scheduled for Black Day. Threats of
water spray and some slippery footwork didn't
dampen the spirits for the Juniors, who managed to
come out on top. Although the annual bonfire was
canceled, Wednesday night's Serpentine proved to
be just as wild and fun as in previous years. Heralded
by the band truck, royalty, and cheerleaders, the
students wound through downtown Mount Vernon
and made their way to the school, excitement mount-
ing for the approaching game.
Talent and creativity reached its peak in Thurs-
day's assembly with a variety of entertaining skits
and activities. Godfather Jerry Rodriguez and his
"family" charmed their audience with a catchy por-
trayal of the Mafia mob at its cruelest. For the third
year in their High School career, Seniors captured the
prize for best class yell, "Urine Bulldog Country."
Following the assembly, the carefully secreted
floats were revealed, with Sophomores coming out
the winners. The royalty car led the parade through
Mount Vernon, with the Boys' Rally Association
bringing up the rear.
