Watchtower Staff Aims for Unique Book The 1968 WATCHTOWER was a product of progress this year, as new techniques and ideas were incorpo¬ rated in the make-up of the yearbook. Journalism under¬ went constant change in 1968, and the WATCHTOWER staff kept abreast by attending a summer journalism workshop, reading bulletins and literature pertinent to yearbook editing, observing other schools ' yearbooks, and keeping in close touch with WATCHTOWER ' s Inter¬ collegiate Press. Penny Gorsuch, editor; Kathy Kepes, assistant ed itor; and Debbie Brasier, copy editor spent a week in June, 1967 attending the University of Iowa Journalism Work¬ shop learning how to produce a superior yearbook. Through experience, the editors acquired the know-how for making page layouts, writing copy, organizing the coverage of material and what was to go on each page, learning shop talk related to printing styles and publishing techniques, and how to budget yearbook expenditures. At the end of the week Kathy Kepes re¬ ceived a certificate of high achievement in the yearbook division. The knowledge received at journalism school was passed on to the other senior members and junior assistants of the WATCHTOWER staff who pooled their efforts fourth period each school day, as well as many after school hours. The purpose and singular goal of the entire year¬ book staff: to prepare a complete journalistic account of a year ' s happenings, unified the divisions of the staff into smaller working units. Major decisions were made by the editor and assistant editor, but the opinions and new ideas of all staff members counted in the molding of WATCHTOWER. With the theme of " Expansion " chosen by the staff at the end of the 1967 school year, the editor and assist¬ ant editor began the preparatory steps in the summer of 1967 continuing on to March, 1968. Each page of the yearbook was planned with foresight. 190
