School Recalls Yearbook Because of Hidden Obscenity

May 1, 1986

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) _ Istrouma High School began recalling yearbooks after the discovery that the headline, when turned sideways, revealed an obscenity directed at the principal.

When viewed upright, the yearbook headline appeared to be written in Greek letters. The obscenity was discovered at the end of the day Tuesday, after most of the books had been distributed.

″Someone didn’t do a good job in sponsoring the yearbook, and those who proofread it did even less,″ said Frank Millican, who respresents the Istrouma district on the school board.

Requests to talk to Principal Robert West were referred to Lee Faucette, assistant to Superintendent Raymond Arveson. Arveson would not identify the student who wrote the headline, nor would he comment on what disciplinary action would be taken.
