At the sound of Mr. Stevenson's voice, they jumped out of their seats and raced to the library, where the rings were being gi- ven out. As each one got his ring, a big smile came across his face. Then an uproar star- ted. All that could be heard was: "Let me see your ring," "Oh it's beautiful", and "Now that we've gotten them, let's put them to good use--on the Freshmen!" It seemed as if the Juniors couldn't keep their band still, because they were constantly flashing their rings to show them off. All of the Juniors were very proud of their rings, because they had waited and worked ele- ven long hard years for them. This day will never be forgot- ten, because it was an exciting step of growing up. i THOSE WERE THE DAYS The mystery person for this week is a sophomore at Flo- rala High School.
