SENIOR SPOTLIGHT Ben Martin % • . Ben Martin FFA NEWS In the first FHA meeting of 1976, we had a specml guest speaker. It was Mrs. Missy Vaughan. She talked about dif- ferent crafts that could be made for the home, as gifts, or as a means of making money. Mrs. Vaughan brought many crafts she had created to the meeting. Right away we realized she was very creative. She told us to make crafts out of odds and ins, without spending much money. Some of the crafts she had made were plaques, Christmas orna- ments, table cloths, and many, many more. They were all fan- tastic! To make these she used scraps of wood, yarn, and ma- terial and hardly any money. Mrs. Vaughan had sold some of her crafts and made a great profit. From Mrs. Vaughan's talk of crafts, the FHA girls saw how they could make money and have fun at the same time at a very low cost. The senior of the week is none other than Ben Martin, one of the brightest students at F. H. S. Ben has been in the Beta Club for three years. He has also been on the A Honor Roll numerous times. Ben is 17 years of age and approxima- tely 5'7" inches tall. He en- joys hunting. Hehas verybright hopes for the future as he plans to become a doctor. Ben's philosophy for life is "liv e every moment of life in peace and love with all brothers and sis- ters." We at F. H. S. wish Ben the best life has to offer. "B" TEAM BASKETBALL Mot of things have beenwrit- ten about the varsity and sur- rounding basketball teams, but for some reason the Florala 'B' team hasn't been mentioned in the paper. WeLl, this years team has had its finest start in some years as the 'B' team af- ter Tuesday night's game with Opp is now at a record of 6-1. This year's team consists of: Joe Lindsay, Ted Matthews, Willie (Buck) Bradberry, Cleve Reese, Pat Willis, Joe Gold- smith, Michael McDaniel, Je- rome Brooks, Chuck Linton, and Jeff Stone. This year's team is quick and can play good ball. The coach of this year's team is Mr. James Wallace. Although the 'B' team has won most of its games by 5 points or less, Coach Wallace feels that they can do a lot better. The 'B' team has beaten a tough bunch of opponents including Luverne, Elba, Straughn, New Brockton, Pleasant Home, Red Level, but lost the Opp game by more than an 8 point margin. They're not going to give up yet, because of this one loss, but hopefully will continue winning games. We at F. H. S. need your support of this fine team and our varsity. Come on out and cheer them on to victory! I PLUMBING - ELECTRICAL Old Or New Experienced - Y.ulhfl, I N() JI)B TIN) I.~R(;E ()R SM *,1.1.

Trailways Is Teaching The Old Dog* New Tricks Any Tuesday between January 6, 1976, and January 27, 1976, Trailways Is offering half fare on round trip interstate travel. It's a fact that when many people think about bus travel, Greyhound* usually comes to mind. It's .not that they feel Trailways an inferior company, they've just never thought about trying us. Test Us half fare is a money-saving chance for the public to ride with us and compare our buses and service to Greyhound's, to see why we call Trailways, The Best Bus Going.

They are also going to a convention in March. Annual Staff is still selling year books. They need more support, so please help! The First Day Back For many people the first da back to school was very disap- pointing. Most students would have been satisfied to have only one more week off. There were many questions to be asked since many students had not seeneach other in more than two weeks. Definately the biggest question was, "What did you do during the holidays?" More specific questions included questions about Christmas and New Years. The answers to these questions were very varied. It seems no one's holidays were alike in any way, but as a general rule, everyone really enjoyed the break. WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A BASKETBALL CHEERLEADER Cheering at basketball games is quite a bit different than cheering at football games. First of all, the quarters aren'˘ as long and it seems that the first half rolls by in just a mat- ter of minutes. Second, there isn't as large a crowd as goes to football games. It looks a lot different when you look up and don't see as many people. Another thing, you're inside in- stead of outside freezing your little legs off, and that's the one thing we're all thankful for. ~,/:~i=¸ -?L.
