First Concerns -- Computerized Scramble First day McKinleyites eventually found their way past the statue oval, past the administration building and cafeteria to the Student Council Gymnasium where a scramble-registration took place with class level, alphabetical system and computer cards. All classes were open for students to sign up and complete their class schedules for the year. Required courses took precedent over electives and manipulating or figuring out which course should be taken at which period was quite a task for sophomores but old stuff for seniors. Delinquents supposedly had to take the leftovers or less popular afternoon classes. Class sessions were underway the following Monday and the school year was on...

Old and New Intermingle with Student Life A newcomer to the campus is immediately impressed with the beauty of the rows of banyan trees leading to the oval and the statue of President William McKinley. Indeed, it is a school with history, distinguished alumni, teachers and traditions. The statue oval was hallowed ground and newcomers and sophomores were often reminded to keep off the area out of respect. On special days such as Black and Gold Day (usually around January 29, the anniversary of William McKinley's birthday), class days and special days, the statue was bedecked with leis, and at commencement times it appeared to watch over the final exercises for those who had completed their task here. The traditional Leroy Mendonca Race was planned for April this year and honored the Medal of Honor award winner. The race route was around the boundaries of the school grounds. This was the year that the faculty put on its triennial show. Students delighted in seeing "Crazy Daze" about the fifties and were surprised at the hidden talents of the their teachers. The past two years saw two portraits added to the Hall of Fame of MHS graduates in the Administration Building: Paul Lau '22, district scout executive of the Boy Scouts of America, and Louis W. Robellow '22 vice president of Hawaiian Telephone Company. Commemorating the bicentennial year, the Senior Class attempted to begin a tradition with the planting of a cherry tree by the Student Council room. They charged the classes that follow to take care of it.

McKinleyites found more time for their extracurricular activities with the change in bell schedule. Activity and Tutorial periods were the settings for a number of interesting functions. The Bicentennial served as a medium which instilled more school spirit within each individual, evident in the many out of class activities which made up student life. But aside from the bicentennial-inspired affairs, students also found time to partake in favorite pastimes; such as cramming for exams in the library, pursuing vocations or 'coasting' in a favorite spot on campus.

Mick Cindermen Display Novice Strength in Sprint Lack of personnel to fill the open ranks called for a year of rebuilding in boys' track. With a majority of sophomores and newly enlisted freshman, concentration was focused on the novice runners. Despite a late start, the cindermen faired quite well in preseason meets, displaying strong contention in the sprints and relays. Those who endured the individual workouts would prosper from the personal satisfaction that track and field could offer. Tiger cindermen entered the Honolulu district meet at Roosevelt on March 19 followed by the OIA Division novice, relay and track championships, each held in April; the Punahou relays in May and the state track meet on Maui from May 6 to 8.
