S UP BY ACTION
Into a new decade...the seventies.
On to a new world... the moon.
UP with everything...
S Hemlines... prices.. .taxes... grades ?
.. UP with our hopes for tomorrow.
UP THROUGH INVOLVEMENT
Seeing in shades of gray...
Building bridges instead of walls...
Realizing people is plural.
UP IN SPIRIT
UP WITH PEOPLE
Alone yet a part...
Together we grow.
As we move UP into a new decade, the
organization of our school moves up
with new ideas-with new ways of look-
ing at student-teacher relationships,
rolls and organization structure, learn-
ing and curriculum development. And
in the end the individual finds relevance
for himself... even without a principal.

Hi-Tide is the enthusiastic Homecoming
Pep Rally held each year. In the Hi-Tide
package comes skits, specialty acts, and
mistakes... But nonetheless all wrapped
up with excitement for all... and strings
to get out of class for rehearsals. Hi-
Tide 1969.. .with M.C.'s Gary, Steve,
and Frank, and their perverted humor...
Hornito Bandito... an annual cheerleader
goofup.. stolen honey... a forgotten song
...and... an acorn in my ear?
It was the week of Homecoming and out
of the sky came...Uncle Blue Wave!
Spreading bushels of spirit...pecks of
enthusiasm... and quarts of anticipation.
After hours of rehearsals, Hi-Tide set
the stage for the big night like an earth-
quake... creating a tidal wave of excite-
ment. The boys fought a hard battle, on-
ly to endup getting stungby the Hornets
in a close 14-12 match. But everyone's
spirit was lifted at the Homecoming
Dance, with music presented by Riff.

THE NIGHT OF JANUARY 16th by
Ayn Rand. Court attention... all rise.
From the beginning of this tense court-
room drama, concerning the murder
trial of Bjorn Faulkner, the audience
is fully involved for they are seated in
the actual courtroom, if not in the jury
itself. Is Karen Andre guilty or not
guilty? The verdict is left entirely UP
to the jury with an ending written for
either outcome. Sustained!

Moving UP into relevant matters our
Student Council can and did do more
than justpass car washes. The Coun-
cil, speaking for the students of P. K.
Yonge, organized two Junior High
Service Clubs ...abolished the Nation-
al Honor Society ...had an exchange
day with Wolf son High School... and
voiced an opinion on issues pertinent
to students. Despite crys of more ac-
curate minutes.. .you're out of order
...we're rehashing old issues...and
apathy, apathy, apathy...this year's
Council will go UP in history!
(At Right) STUDENT BODY OFFICERS:
From left to right, Ellen Johnson, Trea-
-q" Cowperthwaite, President; and Johnny
Clark, Vice President.
As students move UP through school,
they now have a chance to join ser-
vice clubs while in junior high. The
Ripples for eighth and ninth grade
girls, and the Piutes for the boys, be-
gan as proj ects of the Student Council
and have become highly successful.
The two clubs worked in the conces-
sion stands... donated juice to the
neighborhood centers... and washed
lunchroom windows. Are you Rippling ?
. or are you the Piute Pin-UP of
the week? !

cess. THE ANCHOR CLUB, the other
girls service club, is sponsored by the Kiw

ther new club, sent rockets UP into
the sky... sometimes to have them
captured by rocket eating wires.With
an emphasis on safety, the members
of this Society for Aeronautical and
Astronomical Research have learned
a great deal about the space age.

Through a school hour of problem
swapping, to afternoons of copy...
layouts... proportioning.. .and crys
of "is Mr. Ring-a-round?", the An-
nual Staff finally produced this fantasy -
tic piece of literary excellence ...
just ask Joyce or Nancy. Well any-
way, watching deadlines come and
go did get rather hectic, so the ar-
sonists of the Staff often thought of
burning the whole thing up... and
others considered throwing it away.
But we didn't, so here it is. We
think it's a good Annual, so hang it
UP. (In case you haven't caught on,
the theme is UP!) Dot Dot Dot
Our Chorus had a fantastic time this
year singing along with the new di-
rector Mr. Reed. After many practi-
ces, smoothing out sour notes, the
Chorus and Girls Ensemble became
talented groups which performed for
the school...the community... and
their own pleasure. Yes, this organ-
ization,-the Chorus, is the true voice
of the students at P.K. YONGE!
Up with new tunes and spirit... our
band performed at ball games...pa-
rades... and contests, with a superior
showing at each. Whether marching
high,playing in concert, or just prac-
ticing...our band is noted to be UP-
tissimo. We are very proud indeed of
our...drum roll...Blue Wave Band!

...only to be caught by our eight talent-
edmajorettes. Whether marching inpa-
rades .twirling with the band.. .or be-
ing judged in contests...our majorettes
are always smiling, poised, and grace-
ful. A baton... sequins... and long hours
of practice... all go into making this fine
