Winter memberships for the Alliance Area Youth Center are now on sale. At a recent meeting, the adult and student trustees decided to change the dates of the memberships from June to May and, in order to do this, a winter membership for this year only has been established. The price is only $5 and it will run from October 1, 1967 to May 1, 1968 when yearly memberships for $10 will be sold. Plans for winterization of the facilities at the Outlet are underway. Barcus Construction Company is working on the project and they hope to have it ready for use by mid-October. Along with insulating the barn, furnaces are to be built on the terrace outside ol the dance hall. Future activities are in the planning stages and will not commence until winterization has been completed. The pool h<as been drained, but Mr. Archibald, A.A.Y.C. Supervisor, stated that he would put water back in it this winter so it will be available for ice skating. International Beta Sigma Phi Sorority of Alliance has given the A.A.Y.C. an opportunity to raise a large sum of money. They are sponsoring a Shopper's Fair, November 3 and4, atRock- hill School, at which various merchants of Alliance will have booths to display their merchandise. The A.A.Y.C, by selling tickets and setting booths up for the affair, will receive 75% of the profit, which may be a great asset. Youth Center chairmen for this event are Tina Aberegg and Debbie Dietrich. A.A.Y.C. officers are: President - Jay Jones, Vice President - Jeff Baker, Secretary - Carol Barcus, and Treasurer - Pat Hanna, Student Trustees include Jody Newman, Bill Benjamin, Janet Miller, Pat Butler, Martha Hunt, Andy Jone, Tom Dietrich, George Golden, Sue Clunk, Sue Sell, Randy Zumbar, and Cathy Adams. Officers Elected for Work Study RED and BLUE vol. rvNo.^f ca. ALLIANCE HIGH SCHOOL ALLIANCE, OHIO OCTOEER 6, 1967 Angels' to Pay Visit To A.H.S. Three convicts are coming to AHS the night of October 25th. What's more, the National Thespians are bringing them. They're the ones who are sponsoring this year's fall play, "My Three Angels" to be presented the 25th at 8:00 p.m. in the AHS auditorium. Actually the convicts are the "angels" in this humorous Broadway play written by Sam and Bella Spewack, the team which also wrote the well- known "Boy Meets Girl." It's been performed many times by both professional and semi-professional groups, and was presented at the Canal Fulton playhouse this summer. Mr. Brunner and his Fine-Arts students will provide the scenery for the play, and Mr. Brion and the stage crew will handle the lighting and stage work. Career Day Held; Seniors Look Ahead AHS students took a day out to look into their future Tuesday morning, September 26, when a senior career day was held in the auditorium. Various guests gave talks to the top aviators during the morning session. Mr. Jack LeBrun from Kent State spoke on college enrollment and procedures. Another speaker, Mr. John Burkey of the Ohio State Employment Service told of the functions of that company. The Alliance Chamber of Commerce representative, Mr. Richard Haines, presented the roll of the Alliance Chamber and employmentopportunities in Alliance. Members of the Armed Services gave information on career opportunities in the service, the draft, and R.O.T.C. Lt. Col. William Self took charge of that part of the program. Senior guidance counselor, Ernest Linsmaier, arranged the entire program and also acted as moderator for the education forum. New Study Hall Supervisors An experiment using non-teachers as study hall supervisors is being used this year. This releases some teachers from that task and allows them to concentrate on teaching. Thus far, two women, Mrs. Brooks and Mrs. Dietrich have been assigned to study halls every period. Mr. Rogers stated that so far the system "has been very successful." He explained that if the arrangement continues to be effective, lay people may be used from now on. Both of the present supervisors have had some experience in the field of teaching. Mrs. Dietrich was ateacher's aid last year. She says she has not had any major problems. Mrs. Brooks says her main problem is discipline. "The kids are old enough to know better" she asserts. She has been a social welfare worker and a counselor at summer church camps, and states that she enjoys teenagers and likes working in study halls. Ticket sales, appointment of ushers and other financial aspects will be handled by the National Thespians. The first tryouts for "My Three Angels" were held September 18th and 19th, and the final casting was held on the 25th. The tryouts included members of National Thespians and Hue Dom, but were also open to students not members of these organizations. This will be the first play presented here with the new stage lighting system installed during the summer. A new electrical system was put into the stage, which required moving the switch and fuse boxes to a height of about ten feet from the stage floor. The stage flooring was also re-organized, and a higher platform put backstage for the crew, giving them a better view of the stage and lights. SOCIALIZING IN THE TRADITIONAL between-the-acts manner, these thespians of a previous era enjoy a good laugh at play practice. Sophomores!

Several members of the junior ana senior classes are now employed in work situations outside the school, Myron Hawkins and Marion Whaley, seniors; and Kathy Hagan, junior, are working in the community. The in-school portion of the work program is in the process of being reorganized. Class instructor for this year is Mrs. Waggoner. SDIG Chairmen Look for Theme Beginning early this year, Mr. Watson's and Mr. King's senior P.O.D. classes are looking for a theme for Student Day in Government. To initiate ideas for the theme, a film called "Communist Encirclement" was shown to each of the classes. Plans for SDIG have actually begun on a full scale. Each P.O.D. class elected a chairman and committee members to serve asco-ordinatorsfor the project. The chairmen are: Dan Markert, Jody Newman, Paula Best, Kim Peters, George Nutial, and John Morris. From this list of leaders, a general chairman and vice-chairman for SDIG was chosen. John Morris will h.au-up the governmental project and Dan Markert will serve as his Vice-chairman. Other students are being asked to serve at various positions which will make Student Day in Government run smoothly. It is hopeful that this will be the best year in the history of SDIG. She Welcomes Challenge . . . Rigorous Outlook is Main Element in Sandy's Life "My most depressing moment," moans Sandy Geltz, "was when the Alliance cheerleaders showed up at camp this summer in bluejeans and barefoot while all the other squads were dressed all week in neat uniforms." Although this busy senior points to cheerleading when describing her most distressing situations, she also refers to it as "the most rewarding and exciting thing that ever happened to me in my whole life." To solidate that statement, she reports, "I don't know why, but it makes me happy to be in the center of action. I like to be around noise and enthusiasm.' ' Coming in for a close second, Interest-wise, is photography. This subject and hobby rates much of Sandy's attention both inside and outside of school. Her favorite subjects for picture-taking tend to be children. She comments, "I enjoy child photography mainly because children are so unpredictable." Always willing to attempt victory at the call of a challenge, Sandy feels this type of photo-work would be perfect for her. While serving as president of the National Thespian Troupe here at AHS she also finds time to participate in dramatics. Last year Sandy had a leading role in the junior class play. Right now she is gaining points by being business manager for the fall play, Carrying through this theatric interest, Sandy participates actively in the Blue Domino Club. Last year, in conjunction with theater, she carried a role in the choir's musical production of "Oliver!" Getting away from the vivacious, fun loving Sandy Geltz, we can also see a quiet, more reserved person. "Poetry makes me feel better when I'm in a depressed mood." Another sentiment - inducing factor in Sandy's private life is the Lettermen. Sandy giggles, "I made a pilgrimmage to Ohio University last spring to see them in person." One last favorite is the color yellow. In speaking about this, she suggests, one of the nicest things a boy could do for a girl is send her a dozen yellow roses." TRYING OUT A NEW POSE for the RAR camera, Senior Sandy Geltz exhibits her balancing skills.
