Excited sophomores wait impatiently for their turn to join the line of cars towing floats in the Homecoming parade. The week of October sixth, even though clouded by the tragic death of Queen Kathy, was one filled with Homecoming spirit and activi¬ ties. At the beginning of the week, the halls blossomed with streamers of crimson and gold, painted signs urging the Rocks to victory, and bright red Homecoming buttons. Friday the sixth, enthusi¬ asm mounted as students par¬ ticipated in the colorful pa¬ rade held downtown. Three winning floats were chosen and taken to the stadium for display during half-time of the game that night. The thrill and excitement of the victorious game with Clinton added to the magic of the dance “Harvest Moon.” Colorful decorations by G.A.A. turned the girls’ gym into an autumn wonderland, and music from Carroll Baker’s orchestra added to t h e en¬ chantment of the already nearly-perfect evening. Pam Peterson, Linnea Johnson, Ina Karish, and Susan Metternich contribute some of their creativeness for the Harvest Moon dance decorations. 109 HOMECOMING
