Perhaps his ability to depict what many young people
think and feel is what brought Peter Frampton to the top
in '76. His hit song, "Baby, I Love Your Way," represents
an age old idea people readily identify-with.
It is in High School that 'dating' and interest in the
opposite sex reach their newest and most consuming level.
But, as with Frampton's song, all this goes a little deeper.
High School serves the primary purpose of educating
people within the areas of English, Science, History, etc.
However, we are also developing a permanent foundation
of social and self consciousness. We are gaining
increasing independence and responsibilities, therefore
we are more willing to reach out to experience. People are
a very large part of this experience and it is faced with
an eagerness and interest that creates the "High School"
years as being so special.
The most lasting memories of School are the people,
the friends we will always remembers. Your favorite
places and occurances are most likely highlighted by the
music that was being played then. Much is revealed by our
music, for it reflects our general concerns and emotions.
For 76-77 the emphasis was on social awareness.
Just as we preserve our memories, let us preserve a
fresh outlook through-out our entire lives.

"There's A New Kid In Town . . "....
A new president, a new century,
record low temperatures, and ,many
new faces marked the school year of
The election of Southern Demo-
crat Jimmy Carter ended a long dark
period in government. With his
"grass roots" style, Carter won the
American people with the desire and
the hope that he was a man they could
trust. Starting from the day he was
inaugurated, Carter began to
reinforce that desire with little
gestures, such as enrolling his
daughter, Amy, in a predominately
black public school, walking a mile to
the Wh-ite House after the inaugural
ceremonies, and having a national
calling day for anyone wishing to
speak with the President. It is true
these are of little importance
compared to a President's higher
duties, but because of them the
American people have a growing faith
in our President.
Gary Gilmore, a little-known
man, convicted of murder, rose to
international fame with the request
and demand that the State of Utah
fulfill the sentence of death placed on
him for the senseless murder of two
innocent men. Going through
numerous legal branches and
manipulating the media, Gilmore
became a subject reported on daily.
Gilmore's "death wish" was granted
but not before he almost became a
hero in the public's eyes. It is
frightening to think of how many
people revered a man who murdered
two innocent people in a jealous rage.
Perhaps the Gilmore incident will not
only force us to examine our penal
system, but also our own personal
The winter of 1977 will be long
remembered as a cold one as below

country. While Ottumwa did not

In 1977, the Academy Awards for
Motion Pictures voted "ROCKY" as
the best picture of the year. An
unknown, Sylvester Stallone, took his
best shot at writing, directing, and
starring in his own motion picture. No
one ever thought it could be done, but
Sylvester Stallone and "ROCKY"
grew in popularity and soon became
household words. The movie was one
of the longest playing and biggest
