And it certainly should be . . . to day being about the middle of June. The kids are finally "coming down." The end-of-school celebrating is over, and everyone has settled down to the rather monoto- nous summer life. The guys are working out in the hot sun, and the girls are not working out in the hot sun. Some have even begun vacationing. Others have left Clarendon for the summer. Greenbelt Lake seems to be afavorite spot for many kids. Boating and skiing are very popular . . . especially on a hot summer afternoon. Of course, swimming is very re- freshing , too. The Country Club and Western Skies Motel are the two pools most frequently used. (Well, besides the lakel) The lake is not only used during the day.., many kids enjoy going out at night, too! Just recently, a new form of "recreation" has been pop- ular with a few kids. Russell Keown managed to escape in- Juries, when he had a slight collision with "another mov- ing vehicle." I can't say the same about his car, thoughl Mike Leeper's car is still going after his wreck with a truck. Luckily, he, too, escaped injury. Debbie Robertson, fresh out of Driver's Ed, put a "dent" in her parent's car last week. Or maybe I should say "got a dent put in her parent's car .... I" People are always telling us that female drivers are the worse drivers of the two sexes. One out of three isn't that bad, now is it? Leaving town seems to be the "in" thing to do around Clarendon. Carrie Neal left for the University of Okla- homa last weekend. She is attending summer school, get- ring acquainted, and I believe I heard that she has been awfully busy learning how to ride a bicycle again. Tommy Shields left last week, also. He has gone to Lubbock for the summer. Jerry Holland left after school let out. He is working with his uncle up north. Jerry will be back, however, when school starts. Terry Saye was in Colorado City all last week. She and her mother visited with her grandmother. Pat and Wanda Trout have also been away visiting their grandmother who lives in McLean. Katrlna Messer travelled to Austin during the first few days of June where she was entered in State Twirling Com- petition. Katrina did very very good.., she brought home a II The Ensemble Sextet also went to Austin. They brought home a III. Congratulations to everyone.., especially Ka- trlna. The 1973-74 CHS Twirlers left for twirling camp Sunday, June 10o The five day camp is held in Canyon. The twirlers have been practicing like crazy for this camp. They will learn many new routines andwill compete against many area twirlers . The 1973-74 twirlers are Kim Newhouse, Andi Eads and Karen Burgess. The girlswill return home tomor- row. The 1973-74 Cheerleaders have really been working hard for their trip to Dallas to Cheerleading Camp. The girls have been making clothes for camp and practicing on their yells. They have also ordered their suits for football and basketball season. Saturday, June 16, the cheerleaders will sponsor a bake sale. The sale will be held at the grocery stores beginning at 9 a.m. Everyone in Clarendon is glad to hear that Miss Yeach is doing fine after her surgery. We'll all be glad when she is up and going again. Two Clarendon families have moved away Just recently. Kistle and Kelli Longham moved with their familyto Amar- illo last week. Gina Killingsworth moved with her family back to New Mexico right after graduation. We're all going to miss Kristle, Kellie and Gina, but we wish them lots of happiness in the new (and oldl) homes. Kristie and Ke111e shouldn't be too lonesome.., they're only 60 miles away. And since John has already made a trip to see Gina, she shouldn't be too lonesemej eitherl Last week seemed to be the week of the fights for many of us. It all started as a fun-filled evening in Childress. The fun even included a dancel The only problem out to be the escorts. They were the "wrong" according to a carload of girlsl A carload of girls who pened to be going with a couple of these escortsl The was the most exciting part.., our car was in the We remained in the lead all night. And the Shauua, Tracy and I left town at 6:30 a.m.I! we were a little disguested at the behavior of these we managed to have a nice time. It was a change, way! And then there's the one with a neighboring Owll Many of the kids have been going to Amarillo for tainment. Among the many who have gone are Kim, Tracy, Tommy and Cindy. The drive-in can be a little gusting in the rainI And it can be a little when the cashier ask, "How many on this ticket?" Cindy?

Well yes, I am, but activities are rather limited during summer some weeks I may not have enough news to make a However I do plan to write every week except those f@ weeks that news is so "scarce!"
