tETje Crimson Crier Vol. LXXIX No. 5 Rock Island High School Rock Island, Illinois 61201 With accurate stu¬ dent reporting and ob¬ servant editorials, the Crimson Crier covered both the good and bad times at Rocky in 1973- 74. Creative in-depth pages covered such wide topics as morality, cheating, winter sports, and alternatives in edu¬ cational systems, while news pages informed the student body of var¬ ied events and activi¬ ties. Always striving for the true story, staff members guarded against the appearance of bias in their articles ones which have brought up the most talk. Do we really need them? Some people think we should retain these officers be¬ cause they are the ones who make all the arrangements for the reunions for the years to come. In past years the selection of senior class officers has been somewhat of a joke. With either a nomination of some person who does not even exist or of someone who could care less about Rocky. There has been a suggestion to nominate 3 chairmen to cover the duties which the officers now have. These would be This year at Rock Island high school the students want to be heard and have decided to do something about it, so they put their heads together with Dr. William Kritzmire. He got toge¬ ther with Mr. Harold Voylcs, Mr. Gary Ackerson, the senate members, and a few other stu¬ dents whom they thought would help form a grievance commit¬ tee for the students. The main object of the griev¬ ance committee is so that the students have some place to bring their gripes and be heard. Also they are trying to get the school board to pass a new rule that permits smoking in the mall and to have open campus during lunch for the students.

“Expression”Is Theme of 1974 Watchtower A yearbook captures a school year for posteri¬ ty. The ups and downs of daily school life are frozen and recorded by pictures and words. The staff of the 1974 Watchtower endeavored to catch these bits and pieces of the year. Meeting at the quiet hour of 8 a.m., the staff gained a headstart on the school day. During this hour, and many other long ones on weekends and after school, the 1974 Watchtower took shape. By making layouts, cropping pictures and always trying to meet deadlines, staff members learned how to express themselves and their school. 68 Watchtower
