Lucky Bag

There is a "W. Becker" pictured as a member of 13th Company leadership, but he is not with the other 1/c of 13th Company. (Nor is at least one other person pictured, though several from that page are.)

The athletics and extra curricular activities pages of the 1975 Lucky Bag are almost entirely devoid of text. There is no index or list of graduates.
