Growler Is Never-Ending job
Editor Jane Wade jots down a cutline for ayear-
book picture. Her job was to plan and coordinate
work on the 1966 Growler.
School-life pictures, colorful facts, interesting head-
lines--these are the ingredients the yearbook staff tried
to put into the 1966 GROWLER, They worked at a seemingly
never-ending job, starting in August before school com-
menced and working until well after graduation in May.
A mock-up of the book was compiled first to show
exactly how much copy was needed, the kind of pictures,
and desired layout of each page. Photos were then
taken, copy and headlines were written, and layouts were
pasted up. The year 1966 at Rolla High was printed, its
story was told in pictures and words by the GROWLER
In October, five staff members attended a year-
book workshop in Springfield to learn new techniques.
To balance the budget, advertising sales zoomed to an
all-time high for RHS of 26 pages, and students paid
S5 instead of S4 for THE GROWLER, This brought it
into line with increased publishing costs. Over 475
books were sold.
The annual Growler Dance in February went Hcon-
temporary" with a "Growler A Go-Go" theme. A year
of taking pictures, writing copy, and rushing to meet
deadlines ended when final layouts were sent to press in

Factual news, unusual features, colorful sports,
forceful editorials--these were the lifeblood of the ROLLA
HI ECHO, the school newspaper.
Published 18 times during the school year, the
ECHO was distributed without charge to approximately
800 students, faculty, townspeople, and advertisers.
Staff members started from "scratch't--assign-
ments were posted by the co-editors Ceach co-editor
had responsibility for alternate issuesj, or news tips
were obtained from teachers or classmates. Reporters
gathered facts by interview, observation or research,
and then compiled the information into a newspaper
After being copyread for accuracy, stories were
taken to the printer to be set in type. Proofs of the
stories were checked by proofreaders, pasted on pages
by editors, and returned to the printer for publication.
Although distribution of the ECHO ended the cycle, it
also signaled the start of another round of assignments,
writing, and editing, Even as the circulation manager
licked and pasted the last stamp on a folded ECHO for
mailing, reporters were tapping out news for the next
