When the recession put a
damper on spending money, we had
to find something to do that didn't
cost an arm and a leg.
It didn't take long to coun-
teract those blows to our freedom.
Naturally, if the sun was shining, we
had our first logical haven from
boredom. The beach was the
cheapest way to devour a hot day sur-
fing, sleeping, and Suntanning.
But even Florida doesn't stay
the sun worshippers' heaven forever.
By October it was time to start wear-
ing shoes again and find other ways
to beat boredom.
The shortage of youth
facilities made those few places of
recreation even more popular. The
late skate at the skating rink was a
good way to spend the night while
some preferred trying to win game
after game of pinball. And there was
another way we spent more and more
time . . . watching television.
Cinema Plus was a revolu-
tionary idea in television which of-
fered unedited movies such as "The
Exorcist," "Blazing Sadd1es," and
"The Return of the Pink Panther" for
just an extra 58.00 a month.
TV not only brought us fresh
entertainment but happenings in the
real world. The Olympics was one of
the most watched and talked-about
programs. Black African nations
boycotted the games, Taiwan
withdrew because Canada refused to
accept it under the name of Republic
of China, and the Soviet Union, East
Germany, and the United States won
the most gold medals. Nadia
Comaneche, Rumanian gymnast,
won the first perfect scores ever
awarded in Olympic competition.
So while the air was thick with
recession and a little "perfection,"
we became even more fun-loving and
free-spirited. We knew things would
soon be looking up.

with at New Smyrna Beach. The Beach provides
escape on weekends, afterprom, aftergraduating,
and even on Senior Skip Day.
