He has won one letter previously at ISU. Jr. Sr. Protn Sd Post - Protn Last Saturday evening the Hlg.h School Junirs and Seniors held their annual Prom at the Huntley High School. This year the theme of the Prom was "Moon River". The gymnasium of the school was beautifully decorated with^ue and white crape paper strung trom the ceiling and grround the edge of the dance area. At the west end of the gym a running waterfall had feeen erected. Flowing away from th*, fall the julors had cleverly mad* a fllreaifn with a quaint bridge over It, The bridge was used to go ,tii the re¬ freshment' staAd; Both ttteiVrate^ fail and the atream^ had wM<«r m them, the wnterfaA was lighted' with "blaek lijtrht". A large crystal globe hung fr«m tiie ceiling and was illuminated by spotlights. The crystals of the globe reflected spots of diffent colored lights around the entire gym as it rotated. The music for the dance was provided by Mel Elliotts's dance band. This year m.iny of he boys wore white evening jackets which we believe is a first for Huntley. Many of the girls, upon a vote of the junior class, ^U-e floor length formals. ^^ At eleven o'Wck, the crowning of the Prow King and Queen and th* ftfM«wtat>«iw ef tiheh court wa* featured. This year's King was Larry John8on^h| Queen was Dia¬ ne Swanson. ^H Queen's attend¬ ants were Ml^rie Jensen and Penny Carry. The King's court members were Gary Borhart and Dennis Akerberg. The decorations tor the prom were done by the members of the junior class. After the Prom in the beautifully decorated gym, dancing refresh¬ ments, and the crowning of Diana Swanson as gueen and Larry John¬ son as king, the group attended the Post-iProm Party at the Fire Barn. From all reports, the party was a huge success; and many, many thanks are due to those who made It possible.
