Historic Sights
Seen By Students
While many students believe
that the Bicentennial trip to
Boston. New York City.
Philadelphia, and Washington.
D.C. would be nothing more
than an extended history lesson,
to Mr. John Woollen. Corbi
Bulluck, Drake Mann. Arthur
Fountain, John Hammond, and
Debra Webb, it was everything
except that.
The adventure began for the
six on Friday, Apr. 16, when
they flew to Boston, The group
saw familiar sights such as the
Mayflower, Plymouth Rock,
Paul Revere's home, the Old
North Church, and Bunker Hill
in Boston: the Statue of Liberty,
the Empire State Building,
Central park, and Chinatown in
New York; the Liberty Beil and
Independence Hall in Philadel
phia; and the Washington
Monument, the White House,
the Lincoln Memorial, Arlington
Cemetery, and the Capitol
Building in Washington.
The students on the tour were
also very surprised to see David
Soul, who plays Hutch on the
television program “Starsky
and Hutch;" Kevin Dobson,
who is Crocker of "Kojack;"
John Kennedy, President John
F. Kennedy's son; and Julie
Harris, an accomplished actress
who recently starred in the
movie “The Hiding Place."
"I really did enjoy the trip,"
Corbi Bulluck commented. “I
loved seeing everythiiig; every
city was special in its own way. I
wish I could do it all over

and Melody were returning to
their hotel from the Ponte
Veccio. According to Fleet,
under the brilliant direction of
Melody Wood, they got lost. It
only took two hours to find their
way back.
Going on to Rome, these
people found crossing streets to
be a problem. Ms. Murray and
Melody Wood believed that
"when in Rome, do as the
Romans do” and decided to
cross the streets the way the
inhabitants did, so they stepped
off the curb and walked to the
center line and were going to
wait until the way was clear to
continue across. But — what
they did not know was they
trolley cars were coming from
both sides. They did make it to
the other side though.
Even with the funny ex
periences, and the rushed days,
it was reported that all had a
good time.
Helen Bowens and Tom
Banks have been selected as the
Human Relations Couple for the
month of April.
‘‘The Human Relations
Couple was chosen to recognize
those students who exhibit
outstanding qualities in human
relations,” Beth Hodge, Human
Relations Committee co-chair
man, stated. ‘These qualities
include concern for both
students and faculty, display of
good school spirit, not only in
athletics but also in support of
the school, and a non-prejudice
viewpoint. The Human Re
lations Committee is responsi
ble for selection of the couple.
Committee members nominate
students who they think possess
these qualities.”
Helen is very much involved
in Senior High activities. She is
on the varsity cheerleadering
squad. She plays the clarinet in
the band and is a member of the
Kudos and T.A.C. clubs. Helen
