Byrd underwent many organizational changes during the 1964-1965 school year, and with these changes, new T vogues were adopted—pierced ears, patterned stockings, and—how could we forget—“rah-rahs!” As mid-tenn rolled around, evaluations of the first half of the year proved excellent. Seniors found themselves in a whirl- pool of rcsponsibilities, graduation activities and parties, and Juniors found themselves in the midst of their elections. Part of the greatness of Byrd lies in its end- less activities. These enterprises give us lasting memories, character-building duties, and ever- strengthening preparations for the future. are Suzanne Fisher, klaced in the candy Being martyrs to the cause of raising money at Marion Gillilon and Chuck Turk along with othei| the punishment of cream pies for their authority.

Pride from the first touchdown . . . the final basket . . . the last enthrallin£ stroke . . . the home- ward stretch . . . to the Victory flajj ' s ascent — symbolizes the enormous amount of spirit at Byrd. Observers marvel at the Jacket-enthusi- asm that pours forth at " ames. at | ep rallies, and at all functions uithin the “City of Byrd.” Mighty ‘ fc Jack the Jacket ' ’ stands tall to show the outside world that Jacket-pride is invin- cible. Scholastically, Byrd has maintained pride that is evidenced by its twenty-two National Merit Finalists. Athletically, Jacket-pride, coupled with Jacket-spirit, led Byrd on to capture the District 1-AAA crown in football, state championship in swimminp, and outstand- ing feats in basketball, track, golf, and baseball. Maintenance of determination and competi- tive spirit exemplifies the desire of the Byrd student body. An effort to put knowledge and learning first typifies the magic of scholastic achievement. Each attainment was brought forth due to that unmistakeable Jacket-pride, and this spark from the flame of Byrd is the Pride of Louisiana. Anxiously waiting on the sidelines until their half time performanre are the Stingerettes. Their Jacket pride is en livened by Byrd’s 14-0 lead over the Neville Tigers on Halloween ninht
