After she dropped her rifle during a routine, Phyllis Breland's face registers self-

Student Life is a bore, a complete
bore. I mean, in the morning, ho hum
classes and in the afternoon, sleepies
- they're all boring. And since
Student Life is just classes, lt's a
bore. Right? Wrong! Student Life
takes in all aspects of a student's life:
academics, sports, the prom,
summer, homecoming, pep rallies -
I could go on and on. And if all those
classes are so boring, how come we
have so much to talk about? Like
distilling alcohol in advanced
chemistry, dissecting sharks and frogs
in advanced biology, holding a mock
election in American government,
going on field trips in various classes,
cooking and eating goodies in home
ec., and discussing everything under
the sun in English. I guess I don't
need to say much about
extracurricular activities or summer.
Nobody can call conventions,
summer camps, ballgames, bonfires,
or banquets boring. So maybe the
best way to describe Student Life is
to say that it's the things students do
together - working together,
learning together, and kidding around

The mood was romantic: the setting,
seductive. Golden grape clusters
adorning stately white columns,
Cleopatra crowns, a mirrored moon, and
glittering gowns transported us in spirit
to ancient Rome - although our
physical beings were actually in the
Grand Ballroom of the Coast Coliseum.
Preparations for the '78 Prom, on May 6,
actually began in September, '77, when
the juniors launched their magazine
sales campaign. And what a campaign it
was! They easily reached their original
goal of S4,000, went on to a super goal
of S5,000, and topped that with a final
tally of 57,178.70 - the biggest
magazine sales total ever. With that
foundation on which to build a prom,
the juniors with their sponsors, Mrs.
Shaw and Mrs. Webb, began to build in
earnest. The Prom Committee chose a
theme, secured a ballroom, hired a
band, and ordered decorations,
invitations, and favors.
As Spring approached, excitement
mounted as the seniors tried to break
through the barrier of silence erected by
the Prom Committee to keep the theme
Finally the big day arrived. The girls
had their dresses. The guys had rented
their tuxes. The Decorating Committee
left early Saturday morning to transform
the Grand Ballroom into a Roman
triclinium. Their secrecy about the
theme paid off when at 8:00 the doors of
the ballroom were opened and the
seniors gazed in appreciation at the
grandeur of ancient Rome. Delicious
Roman delicacies were provided for
those who were hungry or thirsty, and
tables scattered throughout the room
afforded a place to rest for Those who
retired from the dance floor that was big
enough to accommodate all. However
the tables were not overused as the
terrific music of Papa Joe and the
Riverboat reverberated through the
Midway through the night, the

summer meant swimming, skiing,

However, all good things must come to
an end and so summer took its turn. But

singing "Joy to the World."
Throughout the past few years, both the
Stone High Band and Choir have
boosted the reputation of our school
tremendously and have continued to do
so this year. Both have participated in
various contest and have brought home
superior and excellent ratings with
trophies to prove their winnings. To play
a musical instrument or to carry a
musical tune is harder than you think. It
takes many long hours of practice and
doing things over and over. But most of
all it takes determination and patience,
and Stone High's Music Department has
what it takes.
The Choir's many hours of hard work L
paid off during their Christmas Concert.

The early days of August brought the
SHS band members out of their alr
conditioned homes into the sweltering
heat for many hours of band practice.
The new members, the Freshmen,
started at 9:00 every morning with
"Rookie Practice" where they learned
how to march. Then the rest of the band
came at 11:00 to sweep the field lmarch
up and down the yardllnesl, go over all
the marching procedures, and start
learning a show for the flrst ballgame.
Lunch break came at 12:00. llf you live
in the country, you either ate with a
friend or grabbed a bite in town. Then it
was back to the band hall at 1:00 to go
over old music and sight read new music
until 3:00. At 3:00 unless you had to
hand out uniforms, or pick up one, you
were free to go home and relax until the
next morning when the routine started
over. Even though we only went through
this for about three weeks, we thought lt
would never end. And lt dldn't. When
school started we continued to work on
our show perfecting lt for the football
games and band contests wlth practice
from 3:00 to 5:00 almost every

members. Not only does our band put on Y
a halftime show at every football game,
but also competes in marching contests
and participates in various parades.
But the hard work, pride, and
determination of a small band - only
51 members - can make all the
difference. At both the Mobile and 1

Concert season is here. Practice for state
contest and the spring concert is in full
swing. At 2:55 while most students are
headed for their cars the band members
have just settled down for a long hard
practice. The month before contest
home for band members is the band
hall. Many long hours are spent on
marching, keeping their instruments in
tune, and sightreading. Competition is
tough and the judges are hard but for the
last two years the Stone High Band has
come out on top. After the long trip
home from Mississippi State Contest
practice isn't over. Approximately two
weeks after State Contest the spring
concert takes place, where once again
the band puts on a superior performance.
After all the work that's put in and your
body's so tired you couldn't play another
note or march another step, it all
becomes worthwhile when the judges
rate you all superior or an audience
claps in approval.

excellent job of bringing the Christmas

times they spent learning new songs, the

Clubs at Stone High all have one thing
in common, working together. But that's
where the similarity runs out. Some of
the clubs are service clubs, while others
are formed to learn more about or
become more involved ln a subject.
Many people are involved in clubs
which keep them busy at all times. If its
not one meeting it's another.
Sometimes we have to decide which to
attend or run from one end of the school
to the other in the hope that we'll make
Whatever the case may be, we all enjoy

Earn While You Learn
Members of Co-op are students who earn
while they learn. The Co-op program
offers two academic courses and a class
of Co-op in the morning. Students spend
their afternoon hours working at various
firms and businesses around town. This
provides students with an opportunity to
learn a trade while they are getting paid
for their work.
Formerly, only seniors were offered this
opportunity. This year juniors were also
given a chance.
To Co-op students, school is more than
just hitting the books: it's a valuable
experience for the future.

Even though the 1978 Stone
High Tomcats didn't have a
banner year in the won-lost
column, the team put up a
gallant effort. The 'Cats
faced many tough opponents
and no team, regardless of
their reputation, was able to
run over the hard luck
Tomcats. The 'Cats offense,
a little sluggish in the early
going, came through and
started strokin' later in the
season. From the defensive
side of the line the Tomcats
really showed their
toughness. The total yardage
yeilded was not reflected on
the scoreboard, as the 'Cats
suffered many tough breaks.

were lost with injuries.

With visions of glory and facing
their most hated opponents in the
opening game, the team had their
physicals and immediately began
two-a-day practices in early
August. The 'Cats had to get ready
for their tough schedule. Endlessly
running over plays, agility drills,
calisthenics, blocking drills, and
countless wind sprints make up a
tiring practice session. It seemed
like one practice had barely ended
when another began. All this
strenuous activity helps to make a
strong team, physically and
mentally, and sharpens each
player's own football skills. Even
though these sessions are very
demanding and tiring, each player
will tell you, inthe long run, they
all pay off, whether you lose or

just that when questioned about
the junior varsity. Well, junior
varsity sports usually plays second
fiddle here at Stone. But, after
just a few games this "B-Team"
made their mark. With early wins
over George County, Oak Grove,
and East Central, the junior varsity
became pretty well known.
Composed of juniors, sophomores,

When people think of basketball at
Stone, they usually think of the boys'
team. But, not only have the girls
reached respectability, they have
become a threat in the Gulf Coast
Conference, as well. Under the
leadership of Coach Georgian, they led
a balanced attack and played a spirited
game typical of a Stone team.
The girls started the season off with a
bang with an early win over Vancleave
and by capturing the Brooklyn
Tournament. Although they suffered a
few disappointments along the way, the
girls' team also conquered many
opponents and finished their season with
more wlns than losses.

Wlth the tlp off the season
officially began and the boys
dldn't let the school down. Stone
took an easy win over Vancleave
and then went on to take the
Brooklyn Tournament. After a few
more outlngs, Stone came home
and lost a close one to Hancock
North Central by one polnt. Stone
then traveled to the Coast over the
Christmas Holldays to compete in
the Jaycee Holiday Classic, where
they broke even at 1-1.

Six hundred eighty two people make up
Stone I-ligh's population - people who
have different lifestyles, dlfferent likes,
and dlfferent dislikes. There are those
who live in town and those who llve in

dlfferent races and from dlfferent parts
of the country. Some have even come
from other parts of the country. To get
to school, some people drive Camaros,
Trans Am's or four wheel drives, while
others get stuck with bunged up VW's
and 1966 Dodge Darts: still others walk
or rlde the bus. There are people who
lead: people who follow: people who
participate: and people who spectate.
There are sincere people, shy people, I e
outgoing people, strange people,
talkative people, and quiet people. But
no matter how dlfferent we are, we all
manage to get along because we all
have one thing in common -- we're all

Want a model of a plane,
tank, jeep, car or
building? Call Jocko
Angle. He makes models
of almost anything.
Jocko's hoppy is not only
interesting but also
lucrative. He builds
models to order with the
price depending on the
size. Jocko's interest ln
model building came
from watching his father,
who used to build them.
Starting at the age of
eight, Jocko built qulte a
collection of models
which were unfortunately
destroyed when his family
moved. The models were
taken to a junkyard and
Jocko was unable to
recover them. Building
models is time-
consuming, but Jocko was
so anxious to rebuild his
collection that he
sometimes built a model
a week. And now he has a
collection of models. So
If you're interested in
models to purchase or to
build on your own, you
might talk with Jocko.
John Breland says he has
been drawing as long as
he can remember. He
feels his talent may be
hereditary passed down
from hls father and
John's drawings range
from landscapes to
portraits to houseplants.
He particularly enjoys
drawing with pastels and
lnk. Although he has
worked little with it, he
enjoys drawing with
In John's junior high
years, he designed the
covers for the school
newspaper, called the
Rolling Stone. He has
also done art work for the
junior high yearbook.
Other honors John has
received with his artwork
include designing the
patch for the Stone
County Bass Masters Club
and wlnnlng 1st place in
the art contest at the
science fair last year.
