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
