The organizations took an active part in the Home-
coming displays this year. There were twelve displays
in all. The displays were judged by five people, Mrs.
Sara Fairbanks, and Mr. Dick Wilson from Auburn,
Mr. Hanford Miller, Mr. Don Wilson, and Mr. Edward
Camealy from the campus. The organizations had to
follow two themes in making their displays, "This
Hundred Years and The Future," and "Victory," They
were judged according to their originality, quantity,
quality, interest appeal, and how much of either theme
was used. The winners were chosen on apoint system
of one to ten on how well they observed each of the
Phi Beta Lambda captured the Grand Prize of 350
for its Homecoming display on progress since the cov-
ered wagon. The theme was carried out by the use of
toys each representing a part of our nation's proud
past. The theme was further supported by arecording
of the sound track "With Their Eyes On The Stars."
The display showed us that we as a nation and as a
school have many pleasant memories of the past, but
we can not always live in the past but must look to the
future and keep our eyes on the stars.

A stage, actors, and imagination
are all one needs for a stimulating
evening if the words and ideas are
provided by a great American poet
who had his finger on the pulse of an
American small town. Professor R.D,
Moore proved this Homecoming eve-
ning in the Peru Auditorium by pres-
enting four talented people in Spoon
.Rliver Anthology before an apprec-
iative audience. The play was a real
success thanks to the fine play cast
and the stage help, directed by Robert
D, Moore. These included Joanie
Sprieck, Mel Hester, Mike Toscano,
Don Dodge, Joan Bretthorst, Diane
Morrison. Credit also goes to stage
help Mary Anna Gnade, Chic Williams,
Jim Butts, Steve Mason, Mr. Gilbert
Wilson, Cast NO. 2 consists of
Danna Henry, Robert Beran, David
Kramer, Lynda Shanahan.
The cast of "Spoon River Anthology" brought a month's rehearsal labors to a triumphant
end Homecoming night with its presentation in the college auditorium. Here, Director R,D,
Moore is shown relaxing with singers Joanie Sprieck and Mel Hester, and cast members Mike
Toscano, Don Dodge, Joan Bretthorst, and Diane Morrison after dress rehearsal. This play
cast worked very hard during rehearsals, which accounted for the play's success.
POO RI ER A THOLGG
During half-time ceremonies, five girls and hundreds of
spectators held their breath to see who the lucky 1966 Home-
coming Queen would be. As President Gomon presented the
traditional red roses and crown to Ceci Evangelist, the applause
that arose from the crowd was proof enough that she was
elected by vote of the majority. Adding to the happiness of
Queen Ceci was the presence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Eugene Evangelist of Newark, New York. Attending the new
queen were Nancy Guilliatt, Joanie Spriek, Pat Knippelmier,
and Mary Mowry.
Again that evening at the Homecoming Dance, Ceci was
crowned--this time by her father.
The gym was beautifully decorated in the Centennial
colors--blue, yellow and white. Also adding to the atmosphere
was Joe Wild's Dance Band.
