Semester Exams, Student’s Sleep Slips Away Tossing, Turning, Cramming Midnight, and he struggled to suppress the sleep. With che final chapter at hand, he readjusted the pillow, popped open another pepsi. and leaned back to absorb the material. These study habits took effect one week earlier, when his teachers began their review for semester exams. "Do not attempt to study it all in one evening," the teachers stressed. He. as well as the remainder of the students. carried the books home from classes, and prepared for the semiannual tests. Students were subjected to the final exams twice a year, both times seemed worse than the teacher described. But the worst was not the lack of study, it did not occur until he sat down at the desk, glanced at the pencils, and realized they were not number two. The student suddenly saw a vision of a totally wrong test- the scan tron had no mercy on an unprepared student. Another mistake was readying for an essay test and discovering the one pen he had was out of ink. After the last paper was turned in, however, the relief of knowing the tests were over washed away the worries of wrong pencils and broken pens. He had crammed the review of a semesters material into one week. He had tossed and turned night after night, apprehensive of the fate to come, in the form of exams. But. that fate that came, left almost as painlessly as it arrived. $ Student Lifc Final Examt 31

Print paper, carry water, students become The Unknown Crusaders A lime out was called, and as the players huddled in to hear the plays, in rushed the person with the water and the towels. Who were these helpers who knew the remedy for sweaty palms and dry mouths? Rocky students asked themselves the same question throughout the basketball, football, and baseball seasons. And the answer was- the team manager. The managers became depended upon by both team members and coaches. They were expected to have the Bengay ready for the cramps and the water ready for the time outs, as well as a spotless lockerroom and clean uniforms. The managers, however, were not errand boy, they were pan of the team. Being part of the team did not mean they received the publicity the team stars did. but the students who printed the publicity did not get much credit for their job either. The print shop members worked two periods daily to run the presses and turn the Crimson Crier out twice a month. With the edition of a com- puter used to set the type, the jobs worked more smoothly than when the students hand set the type. Besides the addition of the computer. the print shoppers also added a darkroom to develop their own pictures. The entire paper is done in the print shop, with modern techniques and with the work of the students. Both sports managers and prim shoppers held the knowledge of being a needed part of Rocky. © SPORTS MANAGERS Mark l uin. Boys' Basketball; Shari Fkstrom. Head Mgr. Girls' Basketball; Kesin Hird.
