We arrived around 3 o'clock that afternoon in plenty of tim~ of, us were waiting for, the band's rating. The three jud- ges handed down an unbe- lieveahle "superior," "excel- lent," and a "good" rating that balanced out to an "excellent" overall rating.

LOCATED BEHIND 66 . The first time we cheered at the Junior Varsity football game, all the cheerleaders were very excited and nervous. We were trying very desperately to decide which cheer to do first. After we had done the first cheer, the rest came easily. After the first game, it got to be a lot of fun. If you think that this is nerve-racking, you should try cheering at a Varsity game, especially the fourth quarter, when the Varsity Cheerleaders cheer with us. When the four- th quarter comes, we do our routines with the ~'arsity Cheerleaders while the band plans. Very seldom do they tell us what routines they are going to do.

MACHINE WASHABLE, NO IRONING NECESSARY. COLO R S RED AND NAVY While enroute to Brundidge Friday night, November 7, an accident occured with the band bus, cheerleader car, and a pickup truck. It occured about 5 miles this side of Brundidge. A pickup truck, driven by a Brundidge resident, struck the bus, bounced off and hit the cheerleader car, almost head on. The bus went off the road and hit a pecan tree. The cheerleader car was totaled and substantial damage was done to the bus. Mrs. Mit- chell, the cheerleader sponsor, has suffered severely from the accident. There were other minor injuries, none of which required hospitalization. We would like to thank all persons who provided assis- tance in this time of need. Reynolds Aluminum recycling mobile unit. John W. Snellen, district manager for Reynolds Alumi- num Recycling, said this was the equivalent of almost 60,000 cans which might otherwise have been littering the highways or filling up landfills. "Aluminum recycling," he pointed out, "is a real energy saver since we can recycle household aluminum with less than five per cent of the energy it took to make it in the first place. It also conserves na- tural resources." The mobile unit stops in Flo- rala every-other Wednesday between 1:00 and 2:30 p.m. on a dirt road north of the old Ar- mory and parallel to the rail- road tracks.

Mr. Snellen said that for the first eight months of 19'/5, the aluminum firm had recycled more than two and a half times as many cans as dur- ing the same period in 19'/4. They recycled the equivalent of 1,265,000,00 aluminum cans for which the public was paid more than $8,000,000.

When we had finished the performance, everyone thought we had done a superior job; next came the very long wait- ing period until the ratings were given. We found after seeing other fine bands per- form that the competition would be rough for a "superior tro- phy." Finally, when our ratings were to be called out, every- one was silent. The color guard recexved an "'excel- lent" rating. Drum major, Gary Bradley received a "su- perior" rating, bringing back one of the trophies. The drum corps also received a "sup- erior", bringing back the oth- er trophy. Then came the moment all 17 PIECE BAKE & SERVE ENSEMBLE CLEAR, OVENPROO F, DISHWASHER SAFE. SET CONTAINS I0 QT.
