Yes, Monday we ordered our caps and gowns, also our graduation announce- ments, and class keys are a tradition, and it feels great to order them. Everyone filled a slip of paper with information needed to order caps and gowns. Then everyone formed a line to be measured, the hat size and height. ]'here were a lot to choose from in announcements. Even with different styles, colors, and sizes, they all looked great. It was really hard to decide what we were going to order. Finally, everyone's mind was made up and we moved on to the class keys. The class keys are a symbol of price, achievement, and re- cognition. They were available in many styles, from plain keys to keys with chains. This year there was a special one called "Pride of '77." Yes, it was fun and exciting and we were proud to order them. It was just one of those traditional experiences of being a senior at FHS. Awards Night To Be Held by Deidre Harrison Folks, it's time once again for the annual Awards Night Banquet to be held.

His favorite foods include steak and french fries and his favorite drink is "Mr. Pibb". His favorite song is "You're Still The One", and his favorite group is the Eagles. Jimmy's philosophy of life is "Accept the things you can't change; change the things you can, and have enough sense to know the difference." As of now, Jimmy has no definite plans after gradua- tion. The students and faculty at FHS wish him the best of luck in everything. Player Of The Week by Bruce Baber This week's player of the week is Louis Johnson, forward for the Florala Wildcats. The 6'5" strong defensive player is a great asset to the team. He can intimidate a smaller forward, block shots, and cut down on his point production. He has also scored 10 pointsto help out offensively. Louis is an important player to the team and will continue to be so. We wish him good luck, always. UNTIL DECEMBER 3 1 , CABLE T.V.

Dear Understanding Heart by Serrena Orndorff Dear Understanding Heart, To begin with, I have a crush on the sweetest, cutest, intellectual boy in the whole school, but he's always trying to ignore me. I've tried hard to get him to notice me. I put notes in his locker saying (I like you.) 1 follow him from school everyday and when he wakes up early in the morning, I'm there at his window to give him a cheery hello. I send him my special dish - liver-worst casserole. Everytime he sees me he starts to run. What's wrong with him? What shall I do? Signed, Desparately Dear Desperate, Your name is appropriate 1 feel sorry for the boy you like. 1 bet he goes into a cardiac arrest when he sees you staring at him i,n the window. each morning. 1 mean what else do you expect from a boy when he finds threats in his locker and seeing someone duck behind a tree everytime he turns around? And liver-worst casserole. The smell would make thepoor soul faint. Frankly, my dear. I'd run from you. too. Signed, Your Understanding Heart p.s. Stop being such a nerd and get hip to the situation. Be cool, calm, and not so desparate. INSUR-MATION FARM BUREAU INSURANCE Federated Guaranty Life Mrs. Lynette Zessin I plan to make contributions to a Keogh (HR-IO) plan. However, I am a farmer and will have more ready cash available after the end of the year. is there any way I can arrange to pay later?. Yes. Pension legislation was passed equalizing the treatment of cash basis employers and accrual basis employers. This equalization is now standard for all taxable years after December 3 I, 1973, Deslqned primarily for Keogh plans, it provtdes an outstanding advantage to agricultural producers who market part of their crops after the end of the calendar year. Contributions to a qualified plan are deductible m the current year but have to be paid on or before the date the employer's tax return must be filed, The plan must be set up prior to December 31st of the year on which you are going to claim the deduction. If these special pension provisions meet your situation come in and let us help you start a Keogh plan while there is adequate time to qualify for this year.
