S.S.C. Moves To A ew Location
Do you really mean that?
D. Morgan and J. Boylston chat a little.
But why is it that way?
That's serious, you know.
The Student Service Center offered information, coun-
seling workshops and a group of trained peer listeners.
Room 300 is the new 'location for the S.S.C. The new room
has two private conference rooms where students can
have a private and confidential counseling session with
an adult or student trained in active listening and other
communication skills. In addition, the large Rap room
is divided into two areas for larger group raps.
This year the S.S.C. staff took part in empathy train-
ing, transactional analysis training, a workshop in basic
alcoholism therapy and pregnancy counseling, basic
verbal and nonverbal communications and values clar-
ification. Each student staff member had about thirty
hours of training.
This year the staff sold oranges and macrame jewelry
to raise money for furniture and carpeting for the L'Cen-
ter". They planned a series of workshops for the spring
and hope to go to the state conference for Student Ser-
vice Centers in the summer of '76.

The 1975-1976 Wrestling Squad began a New Era in
Wildcat Wrestling. The "Hard Work Pays Off' philosophy
of Head Coach Paul Holdren made the ,Cats the team to
beat in a year when they were supposed to be down. The
Varsity placed very high in every tournament, sent four
men to the State Finals' Meet, and had five individuals re-
cord seasons' records of 25 wins or more, hence, earning
them the "Belt Buckle Award". They were Johnny Manual
Sr., Capt., Anthony Johnson Sr., Capt., Greg Martin Jr.,
Sims Johnson Jr., and Harrell Milhouse, Soph.
The Junior Varsity Team also annexed a new Coach in
Robert Jones, who along with the many fine hard working
Junior Varsity grapplers set many new standards of ex-
cellence for future squads to attain. For the first time in
the history of a city school a J.V. Varsity Wrestling team
participated in 4 tournaments. They placed high at the
Montrose Takedown Tournament, were unofficial champ-
ions at the City Sophomore West, 7th at the Marlette In-

What Light Is To The Eyes-What Air Is To The Lungs-What Love
Is To The Heart, Liberty Is To The Soul Of Man. Without Liberty,
The Brain Is A Dungeon, Where Chained Thoughts Die With Their
Dpinions Pressed Against The Hingeless Doors.
Knowledge is the Only Fountain, Both of the Love and the Principles of Human Liberty
