Two scholarships will be given to members of this year's graduating class from the 1977 Carnival proceeds. Any PTO member or parent of an A.T. Mahan student who is interested in serving on either the nominating or scholarship committee or in running for office will have an opportunity to express these interests. The 1978 PTO Carnival preliminaries will also be discussed in an effort to do as much advance work as possible be- fore the end of this school year. Any- one with ideas for next fall's event is encouraged to share his ideas at this meeting. As has been done in the past, the PTO will award cash prized to the classroom having the largest percentage of parents in attendance.

Ac- cording to Ensign R. A. Sefton Jr., Pub- lic Works Transportation Division offi- cer, the buses are the largest means of transportation on the Naval Station. Further, he states, the NATO base is fortunate to receive all these new buses at one time. A main area of concern continues to be vandalism on the base buses, the transportation officer points out. Rising lately at an alarming rate, win- dows have been broken, seats cut and food and have been strewn all over the buses. The Public Works Transportation Di- vision, along with the Naval Station Security Department, will be enforcing bus regulations against vandalism. Smoking, eating or any such vandalism will be dealt with severely. in a group-oriented way. She stated that the only way for a group to com plete its tasks was for each person to abandon his/her individual reactions and contribute to the group as a whole. Brad Adams, Student Council president held a routine business meeting to dis- cuss possible upcoming events, including People found guilty of vandalism will be held responsible (or their parents) to pay for any damages. Bus drivers will be instructed to drive directly to the Security Depart- ment when any problem on the buses arises. Drivers will also not allow people to get on the bus and ride around the base for hours at a time; The transportation officer emphasizes that the buses are not a babysitting system. After the bus has completed a round of the base, passengers will be asked by the driver to leave the bus before the next round. With an effort by everyone, the NATO base can have a bus system to be proud of, the transportation officer adds. Any help by base personnel in this matter will be greatly appre- ciated , he comments. a "people auction" day, the selling of May baskets and a trip for all honor roll students.
