When the entire student body is present, bleachers are packed to capacity and extra benches take care of the overflowing crowds of students. Here, only eighth and ninth graders are assembled to hear an interesting and educational convocation on careers. TIONEXPLOSIONCONTINU] Never in any period in the almost two centuries that we have been a nation has the growth and change of our country been so enormous. Every seven and a half seconds the mammoth population clock at the Census Bureau in Washington " strikes " a new birth ; making a net gain of one new person every eleven seconds. New schools had to be provided to take care of the population explosion and the record crop of war babies. Portage Junior High was one of the schools planned and built to take care of the overflow in Fort Wayne. The school was built on the grounds where a produce farm had been in existence for many years. Today, producing well-rounded, well educated students is the aim of the school. This is possible as we are a nation upgrading the standards of income, living and security for the soaring population at a pace unparalleled anywhere in our history.

Miss Hills ' seventh grade ait class is busy creating, sketching, and painting. Daily: Busy Hands, Hall Noises, Guidance The 1963-64 year will be remembered by Portage students as one with daily work, special convocations, seventh period activi- ties, contests to be won and new experiences to be tried. They complained of homework, book re- ports, large assignments, — as all other class- es before them. They participated in clubs of their choice and rallied to the support of teams in all sports events. Each busy day required checking in to homerooms, attending classes, passing class- es, chatting with friends, eating in the cafe- torium, then scampering off to a bus and home at the close of the day. Not forgotten daily was the studying and acquiring of new subject material; neces- sary requirements for future success and careers. The year ' s activities aided each student in learning academic subjects, meeting new friends, and participating in various activi- ties which prepares him for becoming a good citizen. CLASS SCENES Ninth graders " reload " for their next classes. It re- quires stamina to lug books around all day.
