They Just stand out in a crowd. Do you have any idea as to why? It's pride. You can feel it when you're around them. These young adults are proud of their home school and background. And, what's more heartening, they take an even greater pride in preserving and carrying on the tra- ditions of the community. To be "The Best" (regardless if it be football or band- from Junior high to high school) has been a notorious Clar- endon trait for numerous seasons now.. The incentive and dedication in our teams, groups and individuals through- out these years is to be awed! There's one other thing characteristic of our teenagers. Have you ever noticed how much sharper or heater our clubs and teams looked when they're around other school's organizations? Something about Clarendon kids makes them look Just a little big ahead of the cTow_d, It's good oi' pride. When I was in high school we had a chant we'd yell at the top of our lungs after every trip we took. It went something on this order: "We're from Clar- endon --- Couldn't be prouder -- Can't hear  mw we'll yell a little Iouderl" In this cheer is the essence of the younger generabion's attitude: they'll work, devote and sacrifice all they've got to be the very best they can be and if that won't "get it", they'll work until they do. There's no "quit" in these strivers. They want to be number one and they know the shortest road to their destination is WORK. Our "kids" are the biggest community promoters we've got. When a stranger asks one of them where he's from-- don't listen for an answer - look for it in the gleam of the eye or swell of the chest!'.! Illili i i Mr. and Mrs. Jack Usrey visited in the home of Mrs. Usrey's parents, the Lois Putmans, Saturday.
