until the passing bell rings. You sit
up a little straighter in your chair, flip
your hair out of your eyes and pull the
gold leaf charm to the front of your
chain. "Maybe," you think, "lf I'm one
of the last people out of the room, I'1l be
able to see him when he walks by."
. . . There's the bell. Notebooks are
shut, pens are put away, and doors are
flung open. So you let everyone out first,
only to find yourself dodging the well-
dressed students heading toward the
ramps. Your eyes wander across the
laughter-filled hallways as you catch a
bit of the conversation going on next to

for your big debut. He casually strolls in
your direction wearing a blue lzod shirt,
straight leg jeans and silver slip-on Vans.
You catch his eyes, take a deep breath
and let out a friendly but nervous "Hel-
lo," He answers with a half-cocked smile
and a short well-rehearsed nod.
With books in your hand and him on
your mind, you hurry to your locker
where you excitedly search for your best
friend. You approach her with a wide-
stretched smile and sparkling eyes.
"Did you see him?" your friend asks,
even though she knows the answer by
the look on your face.
"Yea! He smiled. Do you think he
likes me? . . . Maybe he'll ask me to the
Prom . . . "

Answering the phone is one of
Dona Ortlund's most frequent and
time consuming jobs.
ou sit in the office, waiting to talk
to one of the assistant principals,
and since they don't supply magazines
you observe the people who pass by. But
you find that watching the three secre-
taries is more interesting . . .
You observe Mrs. Arlene Kivett, who
manages to smile even though five stu-
dents are gathered around her desk ask-
ing different questions at the same time,
while the phone is ringing . . .
Within the sounds of doors opening
and closing, people talking and typewrit-
ers clicking, you hear Mrsjeanene Carey

a chance to sit down from her husy

say she only has one more announce-
ment to type up. just as she finishes, a
student runs up to her and, while gasp-
ing for air, asks, "Can you put this in
tomorrow's bulletin, or am I too late?"
Amidst the students who wander in
and out of the office, you see Mrs. Dona
Ortlund hurriedly pass through one door
and into another, answer three questions
that are totally unrelated, and disappear
behind the teachers' mailboxes to sort
mail. A call from Mr. Curlett brings her
scurrying to his office for dictation.
You wonder how anyone could keep
pace with these ladies, but mostly you
wonder why anyone would want such a
hectic job. You decide that someone
should reward such dedication . . .
And so it is with great pleasure that
we dedicate this edition of La Vista to
the women who help the principals and
keep them sane. Mrs. Kivett, Mrs. Carey,
and Mrs. Orlund, we salute your organi-
zation, your thoroughness, and your per-
severenceg but, most of all, we appreciate
your patient smiles.
