WINS FIRST PLACE Brigham Young University high schools float won first place in the homecoming parade, November 5, according to Richard Gunn, art teacher. The girls who were featured on the float were the cheerleaders; Marian Norton, Joyce Christensen, Carmen Curtis and Mauree Earl. Annette Wing, Janice Bickmore and Doris Hawker represented the Junior high on the float. Mr. Gunn was in charge of building the float and many students stopped between class and after school to help. The BY high school is also en tering a float in the Christmas parade December 2, which will be under the direction of Mr. Gunn and the art classes. The idea of the float is to have a large wagon filled with toys. If everyone will put in a little time on the float it may come with another high honor for BY high school.
