better able to understand the problems of today and our-
selves. We learn to communicate ideas and to use our language
as an effective tool in speaking and in writing. Core is a

Eleventh and twelfth grade students in the D. C. T. program have
the opportunity to learn through first-hand experience the joys and trials
of the business world. They meet in the mornings for a Core program,
under the direction of their sponsor, Mr. Wade Ring, then go off to their
various jobs. D. C. T. students work in florist shops, gas stations, grocery
stores, department stores even the telephone company boasts of their
work. The jobs are as varied and widespread as the world of business in

some students recognize the need of more English. 1
Literature is a subject full of the reading and un- -

S"Oh yeah? The world is getting
smaller every day. Foreign people are
practically our next-door neighbors.
Of course it's important to understand
the nature of a language, but more
important still is learning about the
people! What they do what they
think why they think and act as
they do. Without understanding, we'll
never have peace in this Space Age.
Take my word for it. It's an experi-
ence worth having."
"Who needs a language anyway?
It's nothing but a lousy waste of time.
Besides, I can graduate without learn-
ing to speak some foreign gibberish!"
As Americans, we are free to speak without
fear. If denied this right, mankind would be im-
prisoned in a world of submissive silence and com-
pliant acceptance. Effective speech and expression
are basic essentials in communication. P.K.Y. stu-
dents who take speech learn how to make clear and
organized presentations before a group. In this way
they become poised in expressing their opinions
The Debate Team takes this a bit further.
Students learn how to support their ideas and
beliefs. Attending workshops, our team learned
how to support their statements with logic and
Mrs. Kelsey Ingle, the instructor at P.K., offers a wide and O
varied course of Home Economics. The ninth grade girls are re-
quired to take one year of Home Economics in order to fulfill
the requirements for graduation. Mapy girls come back for the
second year, and some even take an additional third year. These
girls are assistants, although they do the same things that the
other girls do except at a more advanced level.

This year under the leadership of Claire Johnson, the chancellor,
the Honor Court has revised our Code of Ethics. They have brought it
up to date and made it more meaningful to the students.
The new P.K. student Honor Code...
The relation that exists between teachers and students at P. K.
Yonge is one of mutual trust and respect.
We, the students at P. K. Yonge, should bear in mind that we
represent our school; therefore we should conduct ourselves in a
manner which will bring honor to it.
As students, we acknowledge that school policies exist for our well
being, so we realize our special responsibility to uphold them.

One of the main projects for the Student Council this year was the
planning to sponsor a school over seas. The Council learned that it
would take two thousand dollars to build the school. There are still a
few bugs in the plans, but everything has to start somewhere.
The Student Council is supposed to have their fingers in every
pie, and it is just about true. They have to okay all projects that any
organization wants to undertake, this includes dances and any money
making projects. Under the leadership of Craig Hammond and Miss
Marian Davis the Student Council did all that they were supposed to
do and did what they set out to do.

Our Para-Med Club, along with other similar clubs
from this area, spend many hours at the Alachua
General Hospital. There they learn what it means to
be a doctor or a nurse. They also alleviate some of
the tasks of the nurses, by helping with the patients.
Along with all of the information that the girls
glean from lectures, discussions, and talks with dif-
ferent types of medical people during the year, the
club also has fun; dinner parties given just for club
members and conventions out of town are always full

New this year, along with Mrs. Lynn Arizzi, were the Boy's and
Girl's Ensembles. The groups performed in several places in the state
as well as in the city. They also gave performances which were ex-
cellent, to the student body and to the school at some of the assem-
blies and at school functions .
The regular chorus sent six of its members to the State Choral
Clinic in January. The Chorus went to various homes of the faculty
at Christmas time to sing to them the songs of the season.
About March the first the chorus began to crack down in their
rehearsals, so that they would be ready for their presentation of
"My Fair Lady". After it was over the chorus was bathed in lavish
compliments concerning their fine performance.

ANNUAL ST FFMr. Ring, Our sponsor
"Did someone mention annual?" We panicked
.... "Annual who!" And so went the beginning
of the year; until we realized that this year's an-
nual would not come together by itself.
"It might not come together at all," some of
us thought secretly, but we got down to work and
here it is. We hope you will put your stamp of ap-
proval on it, for it is your annual as well as ours.

P.K. this year, morning T.V. The
program is done by the speech
class and Mrs. La Lance.
The Last Assembly
It started with the 6th-7th grade team and
their interest in making P.K. beautiful The
interest spread and soon the Key and D. C. T.
Clubs added their help.
The P.K. campus was invaded by
hordes of nosey teachers. They came
to see the way we are taught. At one
of their meetings, a student panel de-
bated the speakers from the confer-
ence. The panel was quite at home on
stage; two without socks and one had
a daisy on her knee.
From varying topics, that ranged from
cryrogenics to American History, some
seniors gained knowledge that they need
for the coming years.
The band performed at all football
assemblies, during halftime at football
games, and after Hi Tide, around the

This year the Senior Class had a work-
shop to help them put on the difficult play
Tom Jones. Contrary to the belief of some,
the majority of the class worked hard and
spent many extra hours helping out.
Maggie Stryker, student director, and
Mrs. Jackie Snow, the director, shaped,
molded, and shoved the players into their
parts. Although directors always hope that
no one gets sick, one "Tom Jones" player
was stricken with a malady; but there was
a miraculous recovery, aided with prayers
from Mrs. Snow and threats from Mr.

SIXTH-SEVENTH GRADE TEAM
When the first students began to come
back to P. K. after the summer vacation,
they realized that this year marked the be-
ginning of something new, the sixth-seventh
grade program had been established. It
started last year when they began to tear
down walls and to add new teachers. The
school added two new teachers to the ones
that were the veterans to form the team of
Brown, Abbott, McCracken, and Vickery.
The program was a bit of a shock to
some of the students, but after the shock
had worn off, they began to realize some
of the advantages of having school this
way. The students are offered experience
in subjects ranging from first aid to math-

Among the Senior Class' many accomplishments,
they brought the Senior Hall of Fame into exist-
ence. This was several years in the planning, but
it took this class to accomplish it. Of course Virtu,
the literary magazine, was not passed by. The Sen-
ior play was successful and the seniors performed
an excellent rendition of "Tom Jones".
