In the past the ¦ school did not hold these dances because it waa felt that there would not be enough inter¬ est in them. At the dance last Saturday night, more than $20 was taken in at the door. This means that at least 80 people attended. At an after game dance, the school organization in charge pro¬ vides all the decorations, music and sees that the concession stand and gate arc open. Usually, members of the organization, will bring the record player and records for the dance. In this way the cost of the dance is held at a minimum and the organizatinon makes a nice profit. Last Saturday night's dance was sponsored by the Junior Class. The Sophomore Class wil sponsor a dance this Friday night after the Hampshire game. Mr. Fine, Junior class sponsor, and Mr Polack, Fresh-Soph coach, acted as chap- erones at the last dance. If adults wish to attend as chaperones in the future, they can do so by con¬ tacting Mr. Gahan at the school. Grroups to Gro Caroling A number of various groups will go Christmas Caroling next week.
