GIRLS ' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION . . . . A variety of fun and entertainment is the theme of G.A.A. Decorating the halls and gym for Homecoming is always one of the biggest projects of the year for the girls. This year the theme of Homecoming was " Pumpkin Para¬ dise. " Under the leadership of Mrs. Pierce, Miss LaMere, Mrs. Brent, and Miss Chambers, the club, which met on the third Tuesday of every month, always offered some memorable event. No girl could ever forget the fun-packed track meet or the pizza and splash parties. Perhaps the highlight of the G.A.A. year was the annual slumber party, held in the girls ' gym. Although there was very little slumber, much fun was had by all. There were volleyball games, bushels of food, and a mid¬ night program. Paint and paper take on glamour as girls combine efforts to prepare the Girls Gym for the Homecoming dance during gym classes in the lower gym. G. A. A., FOR SPORTS, FUN AND FELLOWSHIP c G. A. A. officers, President, Linda Moore; Vice-President, Issy Matteson; Secretory, Gail Davidson; and Treasurer, Kathy Andrews look over their domain, the girls ' gym. G.A.A. 107

Judy McDaniel; Co-Chairmen, Margaret Finch and Ron YOUTH FORUM DISCUSSES CURRENT AFFAIRS All of Rocky ' s students that took an active interest in social studies were urged to join Youth Forum. Youth Forum usually met on the third Tuesday of each month. Its meetings consisted of lectures, films, and discussions of problems affecting the world, state, community, or city. Most teachers of the social studies department gave students extra credit for attendance at these meetings. Throughout the year Mr. Armstrong and Mr. Hegg, the co-sponsors, met with the officers to try and plan meetings that would be of interest to the students. Exchange of ideas is the purpose and the pleasure of Youth Forum members, shown here paying attention to the after school program. 106 YOUTH FORUM

Discussing plons for the next G.A.A. meet¬ ing ore cabinet members Linda Soyke, Doris Pfaff, Phyllis Vandekerckhove and Betsy Larson. Several activities unique to G A A. are The Pa and Me Party in March, The Mother and Daughter banquet and the campout held in May. None of these activities would have been possible without the cabinet which is formed from the various sports captains and officers. A new point system started this year in G.A.A. A member had to have earned 24 points before she could become a member of the club. This greatly cut the membership which is down to only 100 girls. One advantage to this new system was that every girl who joined was greatly interested in the club. FUN, FRIENDSHIP, GOOD-SPORTSMANSHIP ARE FOUND IN G.A.A. 108 G.A.A.
