|Headline from school newspaper for Junior Class Day|
If you're getting too old to read this type of lettering, the headline says, "A Day In Our Life," which was the theme for our Junior Class Day. The paper was dated April 5, 1968.
Here is Junior Class President Stanley Chow's address from that paper:
The Class of 1969 is an amazing class. It was awarded first place for Homecoming building decorations and posters, and second place for its float. In the Toys for Tots Contest, Juniors proved their generosity and took second place. The class celebrated the Valentine Season with a very successful "Hearts and Flowers" Dance. The Juniors who came out and became involved in the various activities enjoyed themselves thoroughly.
However glorious the preceding accomplishments may sound, we can do even better with greater participation from the members of the class. A class government needs the active cooperation of its members to do its job in serving the class.
We have had to contend with a few disappointments but by and large it has been a good year.

FYI - The Tidesmen was a five-member group that played music from sweet Hawaiian melodies to the boss beat of rock-n-roll sounds. When they played for our Junior Class Assembly, they held gigs at Russell's Row Boat (don't know where that was) and at Queen's Surf. Remember, Mr. Wold? This was his band.
Invited to the assembly were Junior Class officers from St. Louis, Kaimuki, McKinley, Farrington, and University High (Hey, what happened to Roosevelt?).
