The caption for this photo is a bit faded, so here’s the transcript:

Among those who will participate in the patriotic program are from left, (front row), Jay Smith, Tom Pitts, Lynn Fox, (back row) Sarah Huckleberry, Harold Steward, Melissa Upchurch and Steve Cox. The activities will be centered around the nation’s bicentennial celebration and a large fireworks display is planned, and majorettes will be twirling fire batons. Also planned are performances by the rifle team, military drill team and color guard of the ROTC at the University of Arkansas. Kick off time is 8 p.m. The band is directed by Herbert Lunday.
