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
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
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
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

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.

Almost Anything Goes was a money raising event put on by the Sophomore class.
The idea of this comical sport came from the famous television show "Almost
There were four events. Each class including the faculty participated. The teams
were made up of six people and one substitute in case of emergencies.
The four events were The Saloon Slide, The Swinging Pie, Beauty and the Beast,
and The Running Breakfast.
The Juniors won the Running Breakfast event, and the faculty won the Swinging
The Seniors won the Saloon Slide and Beauty and the Beast events. They also
won the grand prize for winning the most events.
Contestants, faculty, and the students at UHS really had a fun time watching
these events. They enjoyed the excitement of spectacular performances by the
