After she dropped her rifle during a routine, Phyllis Breland's face registers self- disgust. No one is tougher on a band member than he himself when he makes a - " mistake. 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 together.

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 a secret. 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 room. Midway through the night, the traditional program began with a welcome to the seniors and guests from Junior Class President, Ricky Stone. Gifts from the Junior Class were presented to Mrs. Webb, Mrs. Shaw, and Mrs. Cain for their tireless efforts in making the prom a success. Senior Class President, Jimmy Moore responded to the welcome address on behalf of the Senior Class. The music of Papa Joe and the Riverboat kept everyone on the dance floor. 8 Student L ifelProm David Jetton and Scott Strickland congratulate Flint Johnson on being elected "King of the Prom." s Wx ..-1" 4...- Returns in '78 L .gf C' W. mum Sitting out a dance at a table covered with prom paraphernalia, Paul Bacon and Paige Baucum laughingly relax.

Then came the presentation of the Prom Court: King Flint Johnson, Queen Susan Dunnam, Dukes David Jetton, George Redeemer, Scott Strickland, Don Vernon, Brian Warren and Ladies-in- Waiting Alisa O'NeaI, Darline Morrison, Theresa Chandler, and Articia Boggs. After the Court Dance everyone took to the floor again and danced the night away. Before we were ready for it, the witching hour had arrived and we drifted away to continue dancing at various spots along the Coast, to walk along the beach, or to drive home to bed. Another magic night had ended. But as the doors closed behind us, we knew our minds would never close to the memories of our night of Roman Romance. The 1978 Prom Court.

But mostly summer meant swimming, skiing, flshlng, picnlcking, or just "laying out". And with the Reservoir and Red Creek so close, we did just that. However, all good things must come to an end and so summer took its turn.

Just as we close our eyes and fall into a deep, deep sleep, a thunderous noise awakens us - the alarm. Begging our - f mothers for just five more minutes is Q A useless. They just won't go away. Turning on the light, they tickle our toes or drag us bodily from our beds. When we finally manage to get up and find the bathroom, one look at our faces in the mirror shocks us wide awake. Frantically searching through our closets we finally find something to wear and finish dressing. A hurried breakfast, and we're on our way. Today we are going to get to school on time. Tearing through the house snatching books and papers, we burst outside just in time to see our bus disappear around a curve. We tell our moms the bus missed us and we just have to take the car. As we settle behind the wheel, we smile to ourselves - this morning turned out really good. The breeze-way serves as the site for recalling yesterday's events, relaxing or finding out about the test we have first period. if 4 kits-gs, .

Answer: I don't know. One thlng's for sure, with answers like that it doesn't take Mrs. Wesson long to average her grades. After we flnally pass with a C- we're on to dissecting over-sized worms and even frogs! We might even learn a thing or two about the cave men with big teeth or the ever frightening pteradon ln biology. We might even have had a chance at a D+ if it hadn't been for the endless notes Mrs. Webb gave. Now it's on to Mrs. Cain and bigger things, like blowing up the school. Well, maybe not that far, but taking chemistry can get expensive. Let's face lt, after buying us three new shirts in a two week period, our moms just can't understand how we could possibly spill that much acid. Oops, dropped down to a D-. Well, lt's our senior year and we can't decide what to take next - advanced biology, physics, or advanced chemistry. That's right, we're true scientists!

Long lines of hungry students await their turns at the drink and candy machines or crowd into the cafeteria to get a carton of milk and maybe candy or cake if some club is having a bake sale. Teachers also enjoy morning break. Some hurry to the lounge to get soft drinks or coffee and discuss the morning's events, while others struggle through the crowded office to get supplies. Of course there are always teachers patrolling the halls or remaining in their rooms to write up a test to be given later in the day. Then Brringg 10:30 Third Period.

Everyone is familiar with at least one part of this department because everyone must take three years of English. Freshmen are initiated by Mrs. Sala and Mrs. Wood. Sophomores become acquainted with Mrs. Davis or Mrs. Hollingsworth, whlle juniors get to know Mrs. Yeager. Besides the required English courses, students who are interested in the study of language and literature may elect to take Mrs. Breland's Latin or French, Mrs. Wood's speech and drama, or Mrs. Holllngsworth's English IV.

Mr. Jones stands with watchful eyes on the crowded line of students, ready to send to the end of the line anyone caught skipping. It is so hot in the cafeteria that the wait ln line seems endless, but finally we make it, only to find what we had already suspected - hotdogs, French fries, apple pie, and milk. Some things never change. Then on we go into the mass of humanity trying to find a seat by a friend so we can exchange some gossip, discuss our classes, or just stuff our faces in pleasant company. The rest of the year goes much the same. The temperature varies from hot to warm to cool to cold to cool to warm to hot as the seasons change. The menus remain the same with only an occassional surprise as we close our cafeterla's school year with iYou guessed itll hotdogs, French fries, apple pie, and milk.

It glves you an Excedrln headache: lt makes no sense at all: you make a lot of mistakes, and you say a lot of things you shouldn't. If you guessed math, you're right. Our Math Department with a wide varlety of courses offered never lacks for students. Mrs. Sellers' advanced math, Algebra II, and geometry classes held the flrst Math Falr Stone has ever had. Each student was requlred to prepare a math project and present it at the falr. She also has an Algebra I class which dldn't participate ln the falr. Mrs. Slmpson also teaches Algebra I and then has a fundamental math class, where students enter the world of math. Mr. Knight takes on the rest of the fundamental classes while Mrs. Martin holds down the little house and its remedial classes. We are proud to have these remedial classes for those who need extra help in math. Advanced math, the hardest math course offered in hlgh school, takes a lot of hard work.

"Twenty more minutes!" Fifth period has got to be the longest period of the day. Students and teachers find themselves counting down the minutes until the 1:40 bell. Once released from the "longest hour" however, the time flies. While most of the teachers relax in the lounge, most of the students gather on the breezeway to talk with friends, or dash to the machines for a snack or attend a club meeting. Those Involved in sports report to the locker rooms to dress out so the coaches can get an extra few minutes of practice. The same ls true for band members. For the lucky few with sixth period study hall, activity period signals the end of their school day as they are excused to go home. For the others activity period is over all too soon and lt's back to class with a grumbled, "That can't be the bell?"

Tired of waiting ln the long line to the snack machine, Linda Evans seeks out a familiar face. On most Fridays from August through February, the gym comes alive with music, skits, and spirit. Friday is Pep Rally Day and during both football and basketball seasons the classes battle for the spirit stick until the gym seems to explode with sound. For the remainder of the year Friday becomes Assembly Day with various clubs, homerooms, and even classes presenting programs such as plays, the Keesler Band, guest speakers, and choir concerts. School just wouldn't be the same without the fun filled twenty minutes of activity period.

If lt weren't for the required clvlcs, Mississippi history, American history, and American government, some wouldn't even take any social studies. But then there are those who enjoy learning about the past and the present: therefore, they take all of these subjects and go into sociology, economics, or world history classes. To make all these classes more fun and enjoyable, each teacher has his or her own special gimmick. Mrs. Shaw has her vlclous dog, Rusty. He should wln an attendance award, he shows up for class more often than the students. Then Mr. Rouse has his great jokes. Well, let me rephrase that. He has his jokes. Mr. Chambers invites you to ring his Big Bell, while Coach Klrker and Coach Georgian tell you to be quiet. But no one can top Coach Roberts' famous, "Let's shut 'er down." s Mrs. Shaw pauses a minute before starting one of her "famous" lectures.

S-Club jackets, Insulated vests, T-shirts, levls, and cowboy hats seem to be the favorite dress for guys here at Stone. This year startling new fashions hit the public. Today's fashions have certainly become more - how would you say - ah, yes, Interesting. Blazers wlth padded shoulders, long sklrts, bobby socks, and splkes or saddle oxfords are reminiscent of the '50's. Then there's the Annle Hall look wlth lts baggy pants and the all American tle. And if you're Into western styles, this year is for you, pardner. The simple dress wlth frills and lace are now made to wear wlth your favorite cowboy boots and hat for the "way out" western look. Along with the "Disco" craze has come the "shiny" look - satin pants with silk shirts and to make the shiny effect even shinier, stick pins or scatter plns or both. Candles made the fashion scene this year, too - not candy as in sweets, Candles as in shoes. This new style of shoe ls very popular with straight legged pants which have made a comeback. Leon Warden wears a flannel shirt, cowboy. hat and levls - a comfortable outfit for school. 32 Student LIfelFashions 8. Fads A very blg ltem ln the clothing stores thls year is the quilted vest.

Aloha, Kanakas and Wahlnes! Come wlth me to the Paradise of the Pacific, where brllllant flowers, flery volcanoes, green valleys, warm blue seas and gently swaying palm trees - not to mention the gently swaying grass skirts - entice and intrigue, where the colorful and exotic are commonplace and the humdrum and dull are unheard of. Pause with us for a while in the Land of Enchantment while we weave a little magic and tell you the Legend of Homecoming Week. The annual staff started the festivities by selling Spirit Chain Links. Even though on Monday everything started out slow, the cheerleaders tried to get everyone "fired up" by coming to school dressed like Tomcats. Tuesday had a little more bang, as Ugly Day went over really good. Some of the students knocked themselves out trying to be the ugliest. Nobody at Stone High ever thought it would be hard to get any of our football cheerleaders to talk, but everybody had second thoughts Wednesday on "Make a Cheerleader Talk Day." At noon when the contest was over, there were still 3 cheerleaders out of -10 who hadn't talked. Thursday everybody was looking forward to the bonfire. Even though it drizzled all day, we dldn't let that dampen our spirit. That afternoon the Homecoming Court, escorts, band, and cheerleaders went down to Perk to rehearse the pregame actlvltles. After practice the court went back to the Ag Building to work on their float. The longer they worked, the more lt began to take the shape of a tropical paradise. Who but Mrs. Caln would have believed they could turn newspaper into a volcano, coconut trees, and even exotic birds. It took patience and a lot of hard work, but it pald off. The volcano topped the blcentennial eagle. Cutest, Marcia Meadows, gives Wendy Walts and Lorese Taylor a run for their money at being ugliest, too. Aided by Troy Cobb and a little gas, the bonfire reaches its peak. 34 Student L ifelHomecomlng 1 u , an-. , .-,..:w1.-V. S ,lt X 't I ,. I .

When the annual staff rolled out the links the seniors' chaln looked longer, but everyone had heard the rumor that the freshmen had won. Mr. Baucum called out the totals starting wlth the class having the fewest llnks. The juniors were on the bottom, followed by the sophomores. By thls time freshmen and seniors were standing and screaming like crazy. Everybody in the whole school was caught up In the battling mood. Even though the freshmen had more people on their side, lt dldn't help them too much because they still came ln second. The seniors had preserved tradltlon by wlnnlng agaln. After the vlctory cheers, the judges announced the seniors as double vlctors by awarding them the splrlt stlck. Wlth Mr. Baucum's famous words, "You have ten mlnutes," everyone dispersed from the gym and moved on to slxth period, where they sat anxiously awaltlng the 2:55 bell which put us a little closer to the ballgame. At 6:15 those partlclpatlng ln the Homecoming ceremony began arrlvlng at Perk. At seven sharp the band flled on the fleld, flanked by the flags as hula girls wlth Hawallan flowers ln their hair and around their ankles. As the cheerleaders passed the stands on their float, they threw mlnature footballs to the crowd, trylng to get them fired up for the game. Then came the Homecoming Float, a tropical paradlse filled with exotlc birds, lush green plants, a grass shack at the base of the volcano and the lovely Queen wlth her Hawallan maidens.

The flower girl was Candy Fountain and the crown bearer was Jason Rouse. After the queen was crowned, the flre god of the volcano erupted as a fitting climax to the Homecoming Ceremonies. Wlth the start of the game, the scene changed completely. The Tomcats were looklng good at half time with a 6 to O lead. But by the end of the game our team had been overpowered again, loslng 12-6 to Pearl Rlver Central.

On September 12, despite the fact that there was not a hint of fall ln the air, fair posters began popping up everywhere as Dolph Alexander and Garvin and Harry Weaver braved the rain to tack up signs announcing Fair Week, October 2-6. Although the fair was three weeks away excitement was already rising. Girls began slgnlng up to enter the Falr Queen Contest and various organizations began to throw around ideas for floats to enter In the parade. Those who were planning to exhibit animals in the livestock shows or the pet show lntenslfled their training and grooming to get their animals ready. Others started looklng around for canned goods, handicrafts, or plants they could enter ln the fair exhibits. And everywhere there was talk of what rides would be available and who would win a stuffed animal or dunk a fireman. On September 26 at Malone Hall, the 48 Falr Queen contestants nervously awaited the judges' decision. When it finally came, the audience applauded with approval as Patti McDaniel was named Queen with Denlse Taylor, First Alternate, Barbara Wells, Second Alternate, Harriett De Jarnett, Third Alternate: and Lisa Morgan, Fourth Alternate. Monday morning found most students discussing the rapidly approaching Fair Day. All week creative ideas were put to practical use as floats began to take shape. And everyone was excited about getting out early Friday. And then Frlday dawned bright, beautifully sunny, and COOL. Fall had came and so had Fair Day. Everyone scurried around putting finishing touches on floats. Suddenly it was 12:00 - time for the Fair Parade to assemble at the Courthouse. At 1:00 all the floats were llned up and the parade began. With the Stone High Band leading the way, the parade moved slowly down Third Street to College and on up the hill to 1st Street. A left turn on 1st and the parade passed ln front of the throngs of people llnlng the street.

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 After another superior performance, the band comes off the field at afternoon. attention.

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. 4-X vvf But the hard work, pride, and determination of a small band - only 51 members - can make all the difference.

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.

Willing to settle for nothing less than excellence, our choir usually does a superior job. Throughout the year the choir has worked very hard rehearsing many new songs for contest and preparing for their Christmas and Spring concerts. The choir did an excellent job of bringing the Christmas spirit into each person during the Christmas concert by singing favorite Christmas songs. Even with all the ordinary rehearsals and times they spent learning new songs, the choir spent many hours raising money through bake sales, garage sales, and candy sales, to earn enough money to go to Nashville in Nlay to compete with 49 other choirs. They also hope to go to Opry Land while there. Overall the choir has done an excellent job, under the direction of Mrs. Jerelene Jones. She has helped them win many outstanding awards. MusiclChoir 63 Dknlv That's Entertainment The sextet and ensemble, a select group of the Stone High Choir, has done an outstanding job during their concert performances.

They also performed on the "Good Morning South Mississippi" television show during the week that Stone High was saluted. In the spring both groups will attend the District Choral Festival in Biloxi, where they hope to receive superior ratings which will send them to the State Contest in Vicksburg.

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 both.

Staffers sacrifice some of their hours of fun in the sun to sell ads, make things for the Christmas Bazaar, and have brainstorming sessions to choose a theme and think up ingenious ways to make money to finance the annual. After school starts, work becomes more regular and intense. Writing and rewriting COPY, drawing and redrawing layouts, and typing and retyplng copy to meet those inevitable deadlines takes up all of fourth period and many hours after school. Then there are always pictures to schedule, to take, and to develop. The addition of a darkroom has helped on that score, but the plaintive cry, "I can't finish this layout because I don't have any pictures," can still be heard at least once a day. A lot of work goes into producing a yearbook and lots of work concerns financing. With no money budgeted from the county, staffers must pay for the annual through the sale of advertising space, subscriptions, and various fund raising activities. So for members of the annual staff, the work does not stop at the end of fourth period. Members handle the concession stand at football games, sell spirit chain links during Homecoming Week, put on the annual Senior Beauty and Beau Pageant, and this year added a Christmas Bazaar. Staffers take on many responsibilities and sometimes get discouraged and frustrated, but when the annual arrives in the Spring all agree that the work is worthwhile. 82 ClubslAnnual Staff Carefully watching her fingers, Harriett DeJarnett cuts spirit chain links.

To top it off they arranged a basket, filled with food, to give to a needy family. But, wait folks, that's not all.

Last spring five of the charter members and their sponsor Mrs. Sellers went to Jackson to the State Mu Alpha Theta Convention. While there they went to workshops and listened to talks concerning math and math projects. They started off this year with a trip to Southern to the computer center where members learned a lot about computers. The club's project this year is to raise enough money to buy a computer that can be used for long mathematical problems.

Stone High athletes spend many hours on the court, field, or couse preparlng themselves both mentally and physlcally for their next game or meet. Student support at our games Is also very Important. Without support from the students our sports would not mean a thlng. Although there was much support at our football games, we were a little less than superlor. But basketball made up for thls. For the thlrd year, the Tomcats captured the Gulf Coast Conference and the Dlstrlct 8-A tltle. The boys also took the South State Champlonshlp and are now headed for State on March 1, where they hope to capture the State tltle. Baseball, track, tennls, and golf won't start untll early spring.

In the George County game the Tomcat offense takes its turn. 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. Games were lost in the last few seconds and key players were lost with injuries.

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.

This is the high point of the season for the Tomcats. After seven long weeks of disappointment, the 'Cats finally come out on top. The Poplarvllle Hornets came into their Homecoming with a 1-6 record, and hoped to defeat the Tomcats, but the gladiators from Stone had different ideas. The game was close all the way. Stone's offense came alive and strutted their stuff by generating twenty-one points, a hlgh for the season. The 'Cats hard hitting defense controlled the line of scrimmage and allowed only fourteen points which broke the lock of the Poplarvllle team. One could hear the shouts and cheers of the Stone players and fans almost to Wiggins. S portslFootball 99 Football "B-Team, what's that? A team of bees." Many at Stone High asked 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, and a few freshmen, this shows a promising future for the 'Cats. With their performance, they became known beyond just the reviews on the bench.

It all started one Saturday last Spring when a bunch of girls tried out for the 1978-79 football cheerleaders. The girls worked very hard learning new cheers for the Try- outs. Nine cheerleaders and one alternate were chosen. Starting that day the cheerleaders began preparing for football season. They attended a cheerleader camp, June 19-22, where they learned many new cheers and stunts and received one red ribbon and four blue ribbons during evaluation. On Thursday of the camp they dressed up as cats and were chosen as one of the squads having the most spirit that day. After school started the cheerleaders continued to work trying to boost the sagging Tomcat spirit with such things as "Ugly Day," "Spirit Day" and original skits during pep rallies. On top of all they did at school, every Friday night found them on the field cheering for the Tomcats.

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. While tr in to recu erate from injuries, Y 9 P Susan Cooper and Sandra Parker watch the action from the sidelines. 110 SportslBasketbaIl fifa 3 A At the tip off of the George County game, Cookie Fairley gets her feet high above the ground.

With the success of last year's team, this year ls sure to be a good one. After all, Stone has four starters returning. 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.

There are those who live in town and those who llve in "the sticks." Our people come from 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 speclal.

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.

The Philmont program takes young men in crews of 10 on a 12 day trek through this rugged wilderness, stopping at specialized camps. While on the trail crew members backpack everything to be used for the entire 12 days except food. A ranger stays with the crew for the first 3 days, then they are on their own. Lance Baucum, of Wiggins Troop 18, attended Philmont last summer. At specialized camps Lance and his crew did such things as pan for gold, pack burros, fish, ride horses, and climb up and repel back down mountains which Lance liked the most. Lance climbed the Tooth of Time, an important landmark on the Sante Fe Trail, and Mt. Baldy where he and his crew induldged in a snowball fight. During the 12 day trek, the crew hiked a total of 76 miles.
