SPIRIT WEEK at UHS was aimed to fire everybody up for the big game of the year. With every class' participation the week was filled with fun and excitement. MONDAY starts every week of the year, but this Monday the 27th of October, 1975, was special because it started to fill us with spirit. We came dressed-up, well, not really dressed-up because it was Sweat Hog Day, sponsored by the Freshmen. Noon activities consisted of Tug-of-War contests between classes and the "army" of tiny Freshmen came out the winners. PEOPLE around town probably thought Happy Days was being shot at Umatilla on Tuesday, the 28th, when we came to school dressed in our parents' old 50's clothes. Sophomores had a lot of fun sponsoring this day, especially when after the Egg Race the football field was a mass of eggs flying in a general-free-for all. WHO else would choose Clown Day as their dress-up except for the Juniors? The most excitement of Wednesday, the 29th, was when all the big mouths got to show their talents by entering the Bubble Gum Blowing contest. THURSDAY was a biggie for us when the Seniors chose Biggie Day as their dress-up. For activities, Mr. Amstadt got initiated when a student from each class and a faculty member got a chance to see how many times he or she could dunk the new Principal in a water tank. The Seniors also sponsored a Wheelbarrow Race where the mean tribe of teachers came out the unbeatable. You've all heard "Cokes the Real Thing," but now there is some doubt now with the students who entered the Coke Chugging contest. FRIDAY the 31st of October, the faculty "didn't have to dress-up" since it was Halloween, but since it was their day, they made the rest of us dress in all Orange or all Blue. Our unbelievable teachers wanted to see how really strong we are by having a Rock Moving Event. They also sponsored a Donut Passing contest while crab crawling from one end of the field to the other. The end was drastic when our "worthy" teachers ran out of donuts isomeone said Mrs. McGraw had lunch earlyil, so they could not choose a winner fairly. The thrill of Victory over Pilot Rock, the Drill Team performance, and the crowning of Gina Carollo for the Homecoming Queen sparked the end of a terrific, unforgetable week, but lighted the way for a successful Homecoming Dance. - ,.-La .fHEEUMEi.'f o f P .- -1i1amm1mzw4i:si'umc, .aixIm1w.wc.. me .wi lf limi WHAT a better way to end a perfect week than with a successful dance. The Homecoming Dance was just that! Everyone had alot of fun dancing in the scenery of hay and Jack-O-Lanterns and to the sound of The Riley Boys Not only did the kids have fun dancing, but almost every chaperone got a chance to show us "how it's really done." TH E court was very well picked this year by our devoted football team. Princesses consisted of Debi Freeman escorted by jeff Watson, Jerita Noble escorted by Chris Fisher, and Toni Ison escorted by Tom Shoemaker. Crowned at the dance for Homecoming Queen for 1975 was Gina Carollo escorted by Rick Wicks. THE Seniors especially will remember this Homecoming Dance since it was our last one, but I'm sure everyone has their own special memories. 9
