  Re: Bulldog football & tickets
  This is what I was told by the PHS Athletic Director:

  ************
  No Sir,
  I am sorry, but we do not have advanced game tickets. From the athletic office we struggle to get all in order by Friday, for a Friday night ball game.
  We do sell a season ticket. This year we have 4 regular season home games and the season ticket price is $12. That ticket can be obtained by coming into the athletic office at Pasco High or it could be mailed, but that would require for us to receive a check and then return mail to you.

==============================================

From: Cliff Brown (67)

  During my senior year I tried out to be Master of Ceremonies of our senior talent show. . . . I though we should do something into which any act would fit . . . that we should have the emcees pretend to be the angels guarding the holy gates, and that all those showing up would be trying out to enter heaven. The title would be "When the Seniors Go Marching In", which would allow (I imagined) a rousing march into the auditorium, with me naturally at the head with my trombone. That part never happened because I could not convince them that we could sing "Seniors" where "Saints" fits in the real song. [It works if you slide the tone up a 4th interval on the second syllable.] But I did get the part of St. Peter following the tryouts. Essie Pudwell (67) was my angel/assistant emcee.
  The tryouts were held in the same auditorium of the play one afternoon. They didn't tell us what would be involved, but when I showed up that morning I saw that we would be asked to read a piece or give a speech of some sort. I had been impressed with a speech given by Gary Robbins (67) during one of our debate/speech tournaments, at which they had a lot of individual events like impromptu, extemporaneous, and oral interpretation. It was Patrick Henry's "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death." So I ran back to the debate room, swiped a copy of Gary's speech from his desk, and ran back to the auditorium just in time to deliver it using the microphone. Outstanding job! Gary was also there for the tryouts and was taken seriously aback by my obvious treachery. He didn't have anything else to read, being similarly unforewarned about the format, and his only choice was to read the same speech without the microphone, using the lame explanation that this was the way Patrick Henry himself would have delivered it. I got the part. And the talent show was, I humbly think, a rousing success. I hereby, for the first time, apologize to Gary -- if he is reading this stuff. It was a low blow and I admit it.
