We will bring our own lunch and have a picnic on the beach, however, it is not all fun. We are now in the pro- cess of deciding whether to attend the Troy State Univer- sity Marching Festival. We are also working for better half-time shows. What Would We Do Without Mrs. Blrge? School has started back at F.H.S. with the usual amounts of antipathy and enthusiasm. The pace has settled a bit now that everyone knows where to go and what to do each period. This process of initiation re- quires some personal aid from teachers and faculty during those first few hectic days. It also requires a great deal of pa- perwork and patience before school starts and every day .during the school term to keep everything running smoothly. Someone has to write out those schedules, type locker combi- nations, mimeograph mater- lain, deliver urgent messages from home, help students with their 1001 problems, and do do- zens of other important but of- ten unapplanded tasks. Who does all this? None other than Mrs. Birge, our own trustwor- thy secretary. She does so many things; what would we do without her? I ....... FRESHMAN Shown above is a warm and cute red-head who is a senior at Florala High. Below is a list of preferences that re- veal her very unique person- ality.

TWO STEPS TO SUCCESS By Beth Harrison vs. Study By Melanie McDaniel A phrase frequently heard Now don't get me wrong, I around F.H.S. is, "Hey, did loves these every night movies, you see "Evel Kneivel" last too. I'm only an--every day night? Pretty good, huh? I didn't get a chance to study for that English test. By the way, you will let me borrow your geometry homework won't you? Oh, you didn't get it either." These every night movies are really popular with students but not with teachers. Students Will watch the movie of the night and put off doing homework until later. The later turning out to be never, resulting in a zero in class for that day. It wouldn't be so bad if they were just on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, but every night does interfere with study- ing occasionally. Even the most loyal, devoted, and courageous student who gives into tempta- tion like others, though I feel it only my duty as a newspaper reporter to let the teachers know we realize these movies are driving them up the wall. Hold on faculty, only eight months to go. We know you'll want to catch the reruns. SOPH 0M OR ES By Ben Martin To others' eyes, they may not look like much,. He's just a sophomore; some would say But all that's packed within his student gives in to temptation years when a movie as great as "She Will secure their future without Lives" or "Planet oftheApes" any fears. is scheduled. That is the only To see this sophomore learn- human thing to do. ins in school SUCCESS, is a big word with so many meanings. Unfortu- nately the word itself, when spoken often, causes people to feel embarrassed. Why, be- cause they think success is a fantastic dream in which they will never be a part or that success is only for those with money, popularity, or an edu- cation. Success is immeasurable, it cannot be categorized, rather it depends upon the individual - YOU! You can be a success each day of your life. When you face a task, (like 12th grade English or typing) your first thought is one of fear. That's where we all go wrong. Don't be afraid that you can't take on what is put before you be- cause you will find yourself on that rough, rugged road to self- ruin. Rather face up to new challenges with the desire and will to learn and the optimis- tic attitude that you can do any- thing[ This is the initial step to- wards being your best self and the next step is one of ACTION. When a job or new project comes your way, plan your method of action and then proceed to get- ting it done. Don't spend time on weighing your abilities or chances of succeeding because THE FLORALA NEWS- THURSDAY, LAURA MOR ROW PASSES AWAY SEPTEM BER 27 ageMrs. 93, Laura passed Stella away Morrow, early Thursday mornng, September ZT, 1973 in a local hospital. ....

The National Register in- cludes such Alabama Land- marks as Ivy Green, the birth- place of Helen Keller in Tus- cumbia, Coldwater Covered Bridge near Anniston, Water Street Commerical District in Selma and Fort Mires in north Baldwin County. The Shepard House is a two- story frame structure, con- structed in a U-shape. A one-story porch crosses the front of the house and is connected to two recessed side porches. Wooden columns with dutch arches supprt the roof of the front porch and give sup- port to the second floor above the recessed side porches. A wooden balustrade with rectan- gular balusters connects the columns. Access to the build- ing is from side stairs leading onto the recessed porches. The Shephard is the only re- maining structure of Poley, Alabama, a sawmill commu- nity thought to have been one of the larger in the United States in the early 1900's. The house, which is unusually ela- borate for this area of the state, was built for entertain- ing and was an important so- cial center for South Central Alabama in the early 1900's.
