I'- SENIORS TAKE TRIP T0 OZARKS At 5:45 o 'clock Friday morning, April 29, twenty- five sleegly but eagxir seniors alongllwi Mr. and rs. Borg- na, r. and Mrs. Harder and Joe Rogers left dear old Waver- ly for a week end trip in the zarks. Our main pastime was keeping each other awake un- til we got to Harrisonville, Mo. , where we ate breakfast. After a stop of thirty or fort five minutes, we headed south over Missouri winding, hilly roads. At Bolivar we stopped for about ten minutes to rest our cra mdped legs. Then in Springfiel we stopped for gas. All along the way tpleople craned their necks at e us to read what was written on the side, Finally, many hills la ter we dpcgpped around a curve and lan e right smack dab in the middle of Rockaway Beach. We found our resort and af- ter hauling our numerous suit- cases into the cottages we set out to find something to eat. After satisfying ourhunger pangs we scattere to look e town over. Several of the kids made it for the boats while others went back to their cottages to rest their weary bones. The cottages were built of natural Ozark mountain rock and the inside ofmost ofthem was decorated in cedar. All the appliances and the furni- ture were modern and they afforded very comfortable liv- ing while we were there. The girls were in two cottages, the boys in two, and the sponsors in one. After seeing the prices of food in the cafes, the grocery stores were raided and the smells of many "rare delica- cies" issued forth from the open doors of the cottages. After the sun went down several weird noises could be heard. Some came from the ducks on the lake, some from the boats, and others from the mouths of those peo le who were having pranks pllayed on .thern. Things finally quieted down until six o'clock Saturday morning when we were awak- ened by' the sound of motor- boats. hat day was filled with boating, h o r s e b a c k riding, swimming, and sunbathing, and ended when most of the kids went downstream ten miles to Branson on the "Show Boat" where some went to the show and others went shopping. The boat returned at te n o'c1ock and everyone was back in Rock- awayxby eleven. Saturday nig t wasn't much different from Friday night except that it was a little later when every- one gilt to sleep. Sundaryl morning found some of e "early birds" out on the lake by sixo'clock. The rest ofthe morning was spent packing and cleaning up the cotta ges. Most everybody found that his suitcases were a little fuller than when he had last packed them. Finally at nine thirty all twenty five were piled into the bus for the long trip home. We headed for Cassville and Roar- ing River and after many hills and curves arrived at the fish hatcherty at Roaring River. Many o the boys probably wished for a fishing pole when theiy looked down into the water an saw that it was black with trout. Once more into the bus and once more out on the road. Fin ally about one thirty we arrived in Noel where we ate dinner. Since we were so close to the Arkansas state line we drove over to Sulpher Springs, Arkansas, where we too a drink from each of the three M S 'li M :fe-fn ,r K . . Q - - all -" mineral springs. Back to Noel again and we were off to Grove, Oklahoma. After driving over several rough roads we sighted Grand Lake. On north to the Buffalo Ranch near Afton, Oklahoma, where several of the kids saw their first live buffaloes. Off we were once again and it wasn't too long until we were back in good old flat Kansas. Finallly at five minutes after eight Sun ay evening we arrived in Waverly--twenty-five be- draglgled, dirty, ti re d people eac with a sunburn, bruise, or ache all his own. By--Vivian Long V ' J .
