TWTYTW 1962 means This Was The Year That Was 1962. The webmaster is scraping the bottom of the barrel for section names.

So what happened during the 1961-1962 school year while we were all studying and not paying attention to anything but getting great grades? Here's some of the things. Got any other ideas on what to put here? Use the Contact Us section to let us know.

Note that the April Fools edition of The Tattler has been moved here.

At least someone figured it out.

The April Fools Issue of The Tattler

On April 2, 1962, the latest edition of the Tattler was distributed. Many expected an April Fool's edition, but when Sunday, April 1st came and went, most people totally forgot about it. So when this clearly bona fide edition was distributed, people were shocked! [insert photo of person being shocked]. It contained a considerable amount of genuine bogus information about IHS, its staff, and its students.

For 45 years, Judy Bonney Slack has saved this special edition. Now she has removed it from the hermitically sealed glass coffee table where it has been on display in her living room these past decades and gone public with it. This website is honored to be part of this expos

However, restrictions have been imposed. We can only show one page at a time. Because of this, a new page will be revealed at the start of each month with a bonus page in July.

Can you read it? No? Why? Is the type is too small? Tough luck. But there is a way. When you click on
PAGE 01 you'll go to the Internet. If you have the Standard Toolbar showing, just select a zoom option that shows it large enough on the screen for you to see. If the Standard Toolbar isn't showing, then right-click in a gray area at the top where it should be and turn it on. When you've finished reading the page, click the Back button to return to the website. If you click the Close button (red X in top right), you will exit the website.
