This group is chosen by audition from the entire student body. Florala was well represented in this group with Rhea Yarbe- rough, Melanie McDaniel, Tim Willis, James Parker and Gary Bradley all participating. The program represented all periods in music. The first section was taken from the classic and Romanic periods and consisted of songs in Eng- lish, Latin. Italian and German. The second section was devot- - EFFORTS - It takes a whole lot of ef- fort, hard work, and deter- mination, that is, to pass a test. Getting a passing grade on a test really involves a lot. It's sort of like baking. It ta- kes all the ingredients of a re- cipe to acquire a delicious tasting dish. If one ingredient is left out you can tell it. If one wants to pass a test there are several things (ingre- dients) he must use. If he leaves one out usually it will show up in the test grade. Following is a four-step re- cipe that is often followed when a passing grade is wanted on the test. (I) Read thoroughly your book or other information con- cerning test. (2) Take notes as you read. (3) Listen and take notes in class as teacher talks. (4) Last but notleast- study! This is the main ingre- dient. It takes more than just a quick glance at your notes. It's according to the subject but on the average an hour or so should be plenty. Where there is a will, there is a Way: *So if yon'want to pass a test you can! All it takes is a ix-letter word -- Effort! ed to American music. It con- sisted of songs from Broadway, The Sacred Harp and Spiri- tuals. A special section was for the audience, they helped the Collegiates sing such son~s as Amazing Grace, You Never Walk Alone and God Bless Am- erica. This concert was very worthwhile and was thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance. Senior Of The Week This week's senior of the week spotlight is none other than Dennis Joel Boles.

PHONE: 858-3412 Recess - - - A Fun Time Recess has become a favo- rite period of school, espe- cially for the sweet, little freshmen. Having a recess like the one at FHS is a new ex- i perience for most of us. It " is really shocking to have ...... .... fifteen whole minutes of free- dom. The first five minutes, we all get nice and fat from candy, colas and potato chips. Then we all join in some crazy games. Well, you know how freshmen can do. In one of the games, everyone sits on someone's lap forming something like a train. Once we got twenty-five, well al- most twenty-five people all piled up on each other! Then the recess bell rang and someone near the end of our so called train, decided to leave, causing everyone in the front to fall. That was a very funny sight, Mr. Stevenson said so anyway. This is just one of the crazy things we at FHS do at recess. Senior Spotlight This weeks senior spotlight focuses on none other than Miss Bonita Ann Cook. Bonita is 17 years old, has brown hair and green eyes and was bern under the sign of Sagattarius. Bonita plays a very im- portant part in many of the or- ganizations at FHS. She is a member of the Drama Club, Pep Club, and a member of the Student Council. Among her favorite pas- times are.reading, and since she is a .~arsity cheerleader, this year she enjoys cheerivg for the famed "Wildcats". Her philosophy of life is "Do every- thing you can today, because tomorrow may never come." When asked about her plans for the future, she said she plans to attend L.B.W. and then transfer to another college, which she hasn't decided on, to become a C.P.A. The students and faculty at F.H.S. wish her the best of luck, in everything. New Student This week the new student interviewed is Philip Bray. Philip is a junior at Florala High School and likes the faculty and student bedy~ Phi- lip is from LaBell, Florida. where he attended LaBell High School.

His favorite food is pizza (with everything), favorite teachers are Mrs. Lancaster and Mrs. Holmes, favorite sport is swimming, and his favorite pastime is, of course, draw- ing. After high school, Philipwi- shes to attended college to be- come a commercial artist. I don't think he'll have too much trouble.

Florala was only one of four bands to receive this rating and it is one of which we can be most proud, the band director said. Willie Sasser received a 11 rating from the drum major judge and the drum line re- ceived a 11 rating from their judge. Both received excel- lent comments from the jud- ges, Alsup stated.

Guard has been under the training of Alsup as well as Miss Sandra White from Troy and James Connor from Crestview.
