The Way We Were In 75 Homecoming activities for 1975 got under way with the selling of Homecoming dance tickets. Beginning the week was a toiletcounting contest, in which students were asked to count all the toilets in the school. The person with the right number won a grand prize at the Homecoming assembly. The winner was Paddy McAdams with the total of 201 toilets at Rocky. The grand prize was a golden toilet , delivered on wheels. Two hundred and one toilets garnered Paddy McAdams this gleaming yellow trophy. Senate president David Brown presented the award to him for winning the toilet counting contest.

In the midst of the morning dew, band members await instructions on how to ex¬ ecute a new half-time routine.
