These are the people who brought you the i956 Pilgrim They have tried to
compile for you a complete and lasting record of the year s events in approximately
the order in which they happened.
Under the leadership of Gordon Abshire, editor, Opal Gaston, assistant editor
and the advisor, Mrs. Frances Purkhiser, the staff members planned page arrange-
ment, prepared student art work, and wrote copy.
Because of a generous S300 contribution from the Buzz Saw proceeds from
advertising, the Pilgrim was published again this year without advertising. Other
income is gained through the sale of pages to organizations, the selling of grade
school pictures on a commission basis, and the sale of annuals.
