Iind Li|i!»man ...Niebidan Penehanit The twenty-two members of the fall Crimson Crier staff began the semester facing a financial deficit left from the previous year which threatened to drastically reduce the number and size of issues. In what often seemed a futile effort to keep the Crier alive, the young journalists combined their hard work and ingenuity in an astonishing exhibition of determination. The group began their financial battle by agreeing to print on regular newsprint instead of the formerly- used book paper. Rates per inch on advertising were increased. Although both attempts were helpful to some extent, they were insufficient to provide the revenue necessary to continue publication. To alleviate the money burden a Battle of the Bands was suggested. After much planning the Quint- City Combo Quake was held on September 30. The Girls ' Gym rocked to five area bands and an attendance of 700 young people. The Quake was declared a success as it netted over $500 profit. More importantly, it bought new life for the Crier. The fall Crimson Crier staff produced six issues. The advent of five columns showed the individuality of the staff members. " Folk Notes " dealt with various folk sing- ers and their music. " Garment Bag " kept Rocky students up to date on fashion. Medical tips aimed towards teen¬ agers were reviewed in " Dr. Sims Talks to Teens. " " Le¬ man ' s Ledger " gave a commentary on sports, while " Li¬ mey Laughs commented on most anything in inimitable humor. The fall Crier staff learned, as did their predeces¬ sors, that it took much more time and effort than the designated daily class period to produce a newspaper. The time escaped all too quickly, and it was with a tinge of regret, fond memories, and a slight bit of envy that they resigned their respective posts to the new spring staffs. 195
