"Y0ll'l'8 NUI li0lll!I T0 BBliBll8 'I'lliS..." "Yes?" "Uh . . , y'see, it's like this . . . I was driving to school, and this big truck was swerving across the road and hit a tree that fell on my car, and then I had to wait till the tow truck came, and after that Ihad to walk back to school, and then Irealized that I forgot my books at home, so I had to turn around and go back, and I turned on the TV for just a minute when I got home, but Iaccidently fell asleep, and by the time I woke up there was only ten minutes left in my class, and I figured that it would be a waste of time to come back. Do I need an admit?" Does this sound familiar? lf it does, you are one of the many people who come into the Attendance Office com- pletely prepared with one of the typical excuses which they hear every day. As a result of all of these defenses designed to avoid coming to school, stricter attendance policies have gone into affect this year. They include the following: only three unexcused absences per semester, and no longer is parental permission always accepted as legitimate. Personal illness, death in the family, and cases of extreme emergency are still considered approved absences, along with visits to colleges and other school related activities. However, the unapproved absence policy has been altered as of last fall. Helping with housework, taking care of relatives, and fixing a broken-car are some of the reasons which now grant stu- dents an unapproved absence, with or without parental per- mission. So next time you're considering cutting a class or trying to sneak in at 8:20, you better take time to review the attendance policies first. "Yes?" "Well . . . I was walking down the hall after third period and all of the sudden I felt kind of funny. My forehead broke out in cold seat, and my stomach felt like there was a million termites inside eating away at it. I knew immediately that I was about to have a Big Mac attack, and that I had to get to McDonalds as fast as I could. Sure enough, that cured me. That's a good excuse, isn't it? I mean, personal illness is an excuse, isn't it? "Three detentions , . . Next?" By Kris Smith 22 Attendance if Pay Now --il ,A ?' ,.l

Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Auds"" 24 Auds Students pile into the already crowded gymnasium and gradually fill the bleach- ers to their capacity. "West give us a W!" echoes off the walls along with resound- ing cheering and clapping. The pep band booms out the school song and another aud has offically begun. Firing up for a big game is what auds are most often about. Competition can boost school spirit, as was demonstrated when the administration lead the crowds at the Homecoming aud. Dr. Johnson, Mr. Liddy, and Dr. Grebner led the contest in which the sophomores, juniors, and sen- iors attempted to out-yell each other. During the West-Central pep aud, the Pep Club presented a series of skits imitating the typical Blue Devil football players and cheerleaders. After these activities, Dr. Johnson took over, removed his jacket and vest, and once again led the crowd with the famous "Beat Central" cheer. However, auds can be more than just yelling. The Gala King announcement and Homecoming Queen Coronation are two of the more serious types. The decora- tions and music from the orchestra pro- vide a special kind of atmosphere. Auds are also a great way to let students know what's going on. For example, the pre- sentation given for the musical set the stage for a good turnout at the actual performance. Some auds are used purely for entertainment, which makes a nice change from the school routine. For Homecoming, Bob Mason provided an entertaining look at the world of ESP. Throughout his years at West, A stu- dent experiences numerous pep rallies which cover a wide range of activities. Cheers, presentations, skits, and speech- es are all a part of the many auds, yet each one has an individual characteristic which will be remembered in the years to come. Senior Sue Jepaen, one of West's Freddy Falcon mascots, cheers the football team on at a pep aud. itBut Were Afraid To Ask
