These plans are still in the "if" stage, however; (if reservations can be made in time, if members can raise enough money to fin- ance the trip and if enough mem- bers will be able to go). If these "ifs" can be satisfac- torily resolved the Florala Beta Club of 1972-73 will be the first Beta Club from Florala to have attended the Conven- tion in 6 years.

Other than this, Bet'h thinks Florala is great! Lovely Reonna Todd from San Antonio, Texas, joined the student body of FHS. She is the daughter of T/Sgt. and Mrs. Glynn M. Tood and has three sisters. Reonna is quite well traveled and has attended a total of eight schools ranging from Portsmouth, New Hampshire to Travis Air Force Base in Cali- fornia.

Her favorite class is SENIOR NEWS It is the semester end and the end of Economics for Seniors of FHS. During the last six- weeks of classes students divid- ed into six groups -- each pro- riding speakers of interest. Among the guests, of the senior classes were: The Honorable Joe Evans, Mayor of Florala, Councilwoman Sybil Mickler of Florala, Mr. Ewin Moody of Moody's Drug C~., Mr. Dave White from International Paper Company, and Mr. Roy Ezell of Lockhart Lumber Company. Edward Simmons and Wallace Smith spoke on insurance and Bob Duggins from the Commeri- cal Bank of Andalusia and Johnnie Smith from the Bank of Florala spoke on Banking. The Seniors enjoyed these and other speakers throughout the past weeks. "Hi, Sadie• Welcome back to school. What's J~een wrong? You were out a whole week!" The questions zoomed asQuiz- able Quincay approached Sadie Student who was clad in heavy sweaters, boots, and a bright pink toboggan. "Well, " started Sadie in a rough voice, "I've had the London flu." "Been to London, huh? Wow! That's great. I'm sorry you got sick while you were there, though." "Oh, dummy, I wasn't IN London. That's just (cough) another name for a dreadful cold." "What did you do while you were sick?" asked Quizable. "The same things every- body else does when they've got the flu .... cough, take medi- cine, go to the witch doctor, complain: you know, the usual things." "Doesn't seem too painful to me. By the way, what's happening on the morning soap operas?" ts in st ames In '7 Within a week after the Christmas break, the fighting Wildcats of Florala racked up three consecutive victories, starting the new year out right in running their record to 8-1. January 2 saw the Cats defeat Geneva 67-46, after Florala had jumped out to a 30-17 lead. However, Geneva made a game of it by closing to within eight points in the last quarter, and it took Robert James, who had 26 on the night, to strike for eight points as Florala ranaway with the 21 point victory. Three days later the Cats hosted Plea- sant Home in a grudge match. Pleasant Home had previously handed Florala their only loss of the year, 53-59, in the An- dalusia Christmas Tournament on December 14th. The Cats gained sweet revenge, though, as, after outscoring their foe by fourteen points in the second quarter, they took a 32-13 half- time advantage. The final was 66-38, as a great defense was the key to victory. Everyone on the on the team scored, the leaders being James with ~.4 and Lane Cravey with 10. A journey to Opp January 8 pro- vided some surprises, as the Bobcats had an eight point lead midway through the contest. But sparked by James and Sylvester Owens, who had 24 and 18points respectively, the Cats fought back for a 70-66 win. James, Gregory Burke, and "Seal" Owens provided the strength under the boards to pull it off. FAMOUS PERSONALITY The Wildcats are now engaged in the annual South Alabama Conference Tournament at L. B. Wallace Jr. College in An- dalusia. The Cats open Thurs- day against the winner of the Geneva-Samson match. The tourney runs through Saturday. HAVE A HAPPY BIRD In a wooded glen in the land of Seldom Seen lived a group of happy birds. Why happy? There were plenty of fish in the pond, seeds and nuts everywhere, and enough insects and worms to carpet a forest floor. "But who is the happiest bird?" demanded the owl, wise in the ways of the winged world. "I'm happy," trilled the robin, "but not that happy. I wish I could soar with the wind like the eagle." "I can really wing it," agreed the eagle, "but I think I'd be much happier if I could look like the graceful swan and lazi- ly float along on the water." "You're all wet," pointed out the swan. "It's too mono- tonous. For my part I'd really be happy if I could have that shimmering fan of colorful fea- thers the peacock has." "Right you are," boasted the proud peacock. "Still, I would give all my tail feathers to be able to sing like the night- ingale and love like the dove." "You're all cackling non- sense," exclaimed a scraggly sparrow. "Use your little bird brains. Think! You are what you are. No more. How can you wish to be another bird when you know it's impossible? Be happy you are you!" THE FLORALA NEWS- ~AY. JANDARy 18, Having spoken that, the sparrow flew away. "Fellow feathered friends," intoned the wise owl, "that spar- row is the happiest bird of all•" THE TEST DID YOU KNOW? " ....
