ENE IQ!- . 5' ' " -A gl .4.,lt Abilene had it all-school days and every night fever, Yet where to find these sometimes remained a mystery. Discos, clubs, drive-ins, walk-ins, con- certs, curfews, rules and religion coexisted simultaneously in the changing community of Abilene. The newly acquired wetness brought new possibilities and escape from circling Mac Eplens or the Sonic. So as stu- dents sat listening to lectures, every night fever momentarily existed as school prevailed. Yet with zero period class, homework, and finals, students found contentment in the rituals of school, in the companionship of friends and in agreement that Abilene High had it all. 2-Contents Masses, consisting of ordinary person- alities, combined to make up the 1,825 stu- dents attending Abilene High during the 1978-'79 school year. Dominating the student body at AHS, the sophomore class with a surmounting 757 students made up 41.4 percent of those enrolled. Capturing the distinction of the middle-man was ironically, the junior class with 607 students making up this part of the student body. ln the role of the leading class, the senior class placed a mere third in population with 25.2 percent or 461 stu- dents ofthe inhabitants at Abilene High. From balls to beams, courts to pools, training to pain, the athletes of Abilene High continued to astonish fans as they made the news. ' Cheering for the winners or the losers symbolizing the effort that went into the training for the anxiousiy awaited moment. Needless to say, life for the athletes was a demanding one. The spring trainings, summer sessions, camps and the never ending pains brought AHS into the spotlight with the always present anticipation of fame. Contents Classes!

Students and teachers worked lsimultaneously in an attempt to exchange I the facts and Hgures necessary for a place in E society. I Yet knowledge was obtained with the assistance of classroom and clubs activities that saturated the campus of Abilene High. V Both leadership and friendship were obtained l through student involvement in clubs. l Through the interaction of clubs with classes, insight into knowledge necessary for life was obtained. Merchants which formed the business community of Abilene supplied students with ways to spend the sought after bill of lifenmoney. After all the shoving, pushing and money had vanished and the calm of the storm had reappeared, purchases were eval- uated and satisfaction was apparent. The merchants of Abilene did indeed offer variety and satisfaction to the popula- tion of Abilene, Texas. Accomplishments attained throughout the year at Abilene High and the students who made them were acclaimed in many ways. The diversity found among the activ- ities and classes provided unforgettable experiences for students and faculty. 1 I i 3 1 4 1 1 ,,....,.1-f-Y'-'M"'1 i r i s I l i QQ' by 3 d 4.

As expected, yet not realized, every student that formed the student body of Abilene High was unique- with individual needs, achievements and goals, ever present yet ever changing. For with the rise of each day, new values, rules, priorities and systems were put into operation to confuse the often already confused student, facing the world and peers in a state of desired acception. The hours and days that went into making up a day and night of a student's life are those of ever occurring eventful rituals that change as the years progress, eventually leading the students of Abilene into the adults of tomorrow. Shaped by the events that came into being as an adolescent, life seemed im- possible with all the problems of dates, grades, money, etc., and merely a stepping stone of tomorrow's existing problems of inflation, marriage and social positions. 1.

Back to school al- readyl" Although most students would not admit it, the three month break rapidly grew old, and the urge to reunite with old friends and new teachers intensified, yet, the reunion of homework and responsibilities lacked enthusiasm. Classes were scheduled to start Septem- ber 4g yet for many, the three month break was in reality a two month break and a startling awakening into the routine of school. Early August workouts which gradually became rigorous twice-a-day workouts could have contributed to the impressive Eagle football season. The marching band also got an early start as sophomores began training at the first of the summer. They were joined two weeks before the opening school day by the entire band each morning from nine until twelve. Student Council leaders chosen at the close of the 1978 school year convened on August 3, to prepare the upcoming rituals needed to begin another year at AHS. Thus, came registration where the Student Coun- cil closely worked with counselors and stu- dents in scheduling classes, handed out l. D.'s and finalized automobile registrations.

An ancient Chinese proverb stated old ideas not always best ideas. With this in mind, change seemed inevitable for Abilene High. A new year, a new age and a new gener- ation met returning students. The year 1979 differed greatly from the previous one for the simple reason of advancement. One change that greatly affected Abilene High was the appointment of Mr. Gayle Lomax as principal of Abilene High. In the conven- tional role of former principals, Mr. Lomax accepted the challenge of over 2,000 stu- dents and struggled to make his plans and accomplishments known to the students, parents and community. However, the main concern on the part of students was with changes in that area known for frisbee games, smoking, racing, thefts and vandalism. To prevent the parking lot from becoming a catchall of other vices, a police officer, paid by the AISD, patrolled the parking lot four hours a day. In addition to the police officer, the parking lot was increased in size by the demolition of the fence that supposedly separated the "freaks" lot and the "ropers" lot. Striping was added to create additional parking spaces. Other changes in the parking lot came with the closing of the central gate on Mockingbird, and also the closing of the back gate with Kathy Batson Tim Baxtor Craig Bell Angel Benavidez Regina Black Chuck Bohanan Ann Bolls Phil Boone Dawn Bourland Kim Borcik Danny Bowie Brooks Boynton 1 4-Seniors the relocation of the gate and Crosswalk to the front of Eagle Gym. All in all, the parking lot changes proved to be effective. Statistics began to prove that the added protection decreased thefts and vandalism and increased student security and safety. A change not so radical as to be noticed by the student body, faintly understood or even slightly interesting involved the library. Once again the powers that ruled decided that the image of the library would no longer suffice, and so it was no longer the library but rather the LRC, lLearning Resource Centerl. Longer hours for those students who wished to increase their skills and knowledge were made readily available in an attempt to promote the use of the LRC and stimulate learning. However, a library by any other name was still a library. fr IWQI' 3 1 ,L "ff ,ag ff A I I .,...,....-. 1,:g5f6,,Ew' ,Y 1 Reprinted from the morning issue of ctober 22, i978 Abilene Reporter News. Q.

This has been a problem since High was built, says Police Chief Warren Dodson. There aren't enough patrol- men, he says, to station one there on a regular basis. AHS Principal Gayle Lomax, says at least once a week he talks to the stu- dents about using the crosswal ks and crossing with the lights. As bad as it is, Lomax said, it's better than it was last year. He also says AHS is the only high school he knows of where the campus is divided by a major thoroughfare. How about it, AHS students? Are you too "immature and irresponsible" to be allowed to cross the streets by yourselves? 3 lg if x 'lx T 1.

"Let's do it all in one whack." "Okay, smile now." "lt was easier last year." Those were just a few of the comments heard during registration from seniors, juniors, sophomores, counselors, teachers and other assorted sufferers. Heard more than once was, "lf you get through registra- tion, they ought to give you a diploma." Backed by get-it-over-with thinking, registration, so the logic flowed, eliminated all problems by forcing students to make snap decisions. This sounded logical, but in reality it was quite difficult. In fact, regis- tration changes were just a herald of things to come. Going from one extreme to another, the AISD changed the test exemption policy for students with an acceptable absencefcitizen- ship record to no exemptions at all. The general rebuttal by seniors was "Why couldn't they have waited 'till next year?" while the rest of the student body felt a general disap- pointment and resigned to the incurable. All changes, however, were not limited to the scholastic realm. Changes apart from scholastic activities included the shriveling of vacation time. Although students were relieved to discover that school was starting a week later than the previous year, disap- pointment was evident on the faces of the students when the 1978-79 Eagles Flight disclosed a shortened Christmas vacation from two wee ks to ten days. Faced with the dilemma of back to school changes, students conformed to new fashion trends. The once flared blue jean generation was rapidly changing to one where girls wore spiked heels complementing straight legged jeans. Supplementing crimped hair was the ever popular disco look, double- pierced earrings and the Annie Hall look. So as the world turned,changes occurred and advancement, sometimes painfully and slowly, was made. ., 15.-v . r 1 I ,,,, , W.,-KX V , f -SQMGA' , , if vii' , fi -EL-1 at , 'Ee i l l l i Tim Broyles Gayle Burk Sharon Burnett Kathy Burton Kathy Byrd Derrik Caballero Glenn Caldwell Teresa Cambell Joanne Cannon Richard Cannon Brian Cargile Holly Carslile 16-Seniors 1.

Watching for a city limit sign was never needed since the steady ribbon of lights served as an official welcome. Many of these travelers were headed or returning from enter- tainment centers which included thriller movies, fast-moving disco- theques and stylish restaurants. The theaters added their own bright- ness and thrill through the illuminated marquees and excited theater- goers. Special lighting effects and loud, fast music cast the overall atmosphere for dancers and spectators at the crowded discoteques. The attractive neon signs of restaurants and fast-food places contri- buted to the evergrowing mass of lights in Abilene as each establish- ment sought to attract more customers. Of course, special seasons brought added illumination. As usual, the West Texas Fair highlighted the skyline. The splendor of its appearance at night was largely because of its lighting. The revolving rides threw off multicolors and blended them with the carnival atmosphere to create a happy and jovial spirit for all to share. Probably the most expressive season of the year was Christmas. The downtown area shopping malls, office buildings and residential areas all participated in decorating for the season as Christmas trees were seen through windows and giant snowmen and Santa Clauses were placed around homes. Tinsel was strung to continually remind everyone of the holidays and the returning traditional Christmas spirit. The lights of Abilene dehnitely served a dual purpose. They not only lit up normally dark streets and attracted the nighttime traveler but also gave an aura of excitement to the normal humdrum daytime life of the Abilene citizen.

Since the instigation of Abilene's "other" high school, the intense desire to excel has been divided into two opposing forces, Abilene High and Cooper. Rivalry continued to grow. Finally oppo- sition has increased to include not only sports but academics as well. Whatever the activity, AHS students maintained as their goal the outclassing Cooper. The most prevalent area of rivalry existed in football. The Eagles had sustained thirteen consecutive losses in the heated battle. Their supreme goal was to break Cooper's winning streak. Though futile in their valiant attempts, the Eagles anticipated victory in the various sports confrontations to occur throughout the year. Eagle basket- ball players were among those striving to conquer Cooper as they prepared to repeat last year's victory over the Cougars in which AHS continued on to the state playoffs. Competition was not limited to sports however. A report by the National Associ- ation of Secondary School Principals stated that National Merit Scholastic Aptitude Tests scores were ranked among 34 schools in the nation and the only one in Texas as unusually high. Once again, the Eagles had displayed their talents and had superseded those of the students across town. Another facet of cross-town rivalry existed in community supporters. A com- mon complaint heard among Eagles was that news media reporting continually favored the South side of town. Booster Club members worked in the community to build up support for their respective schools, each claiming that theirs was the best. Former students lent enthusiastic support in various ways. ln all areas of Abilene, friend- ships and an intense rivalry co-existed because of the fierce competition between the Abilene Eagles and the Cooper Cougars.

The Eighth Annual Sing Song was detinitely more than just an activity in October, it served as the major competition between the three classes at AHS. Before its October 26 presentation, many hours of planning and preparation went into making Sing Song i978 a highlight of Homecoming week. An initial step was the selection of four students who would become the show's hosts and hostesses. Tryouts were held on September i4 in the auditorium. From a turnout of twenty-four students, Clay Hale, Terri Hawkins, Randy Story and Dorothy McFarland were chosen as performers. Music was then selected to showcase the hosts' and hostesses' talents. Tryouts for student directors followed on the next day with Matt Craig and Michelle Derrick being appointed. With Sing Song only weeks away, long hours of rehearsals and endless preparations began. Many rehearsals were held at various locations around town on week nights and even over weekends. Most students spent a good portion of their day in all-around preparation for the Sing Song presentation. Finally, students received their one and only chance to see each other's perform- ances at dress rehearsal two nights before the actual show. Coordinated by Mr. Wes Odell, Sing Song included a tremendous amount of time and hard work on the part of over 200 of Abilene High's students. Limited to a budget of 1l5l,O00, the production was proclaimed a fabulous success. vw 4 5 Myra Cumby Steve Currie Tommy Dabney Mary Dail Cyndi Dambach Shelia Daniels Deana Dannenberg Laura Darnell David Davidson Cecelia Davis Lana Davis Randy Davis 24-Seniors 1.

'ATN "' -41 Seniors continue to uphold ancient roles Finally it happened. Students reached the status of becoming a senior. Each person had experienced trials and tribulations through elementary and junior high school in order to reach their seemingly unattain- able goal. When the high school level was reached there was still the effort of com- pleting the sophomore and junior levels before the final year began. The newly acquired status contributed to a large proportion of changes in the stu- dents' characteristics. A spark of enthusiasm awakened as the seniors of 1979 were led by their peers, the officers of the senior class. Stepping into a previously molded form, seniors expressed a new awakening in the class. As a class they participated in tradi- tional events and created new ones to fit contemporary ideas and styles. Taking time out from summer activities, seniors began their new role with the taking of senior portraits, a task anxiously awaited by most hoping to capture an appearance that might never be seen again. Soon after the opening of school came the traditional senior class breakfast held at McDonalds at the start of district football play. A magnitude of seniors, displaying both spirit and hunger turned out for the event. The spirit so widely acclaimed, came to be a distinct evidence that the once apathetic junior class were seniors, and all signs of unconcern had vanished.

These tasks often drove the seniors into a frenzy as many released happiness while others felt the frightening prospect of being out on their own to face the world. With the conglomeration of confusion of future hopes and goals, simple routine matters added to the excitement of graduation, Of course the first step was getting the ,mi W cap and gown fitted. This started early in 1979 on january 16 and 17. The tassles on the graduation caps were changed for the 1979 class from the traditional yellow to mixed black and gold tassles. Invitations were also ordered in anticipation of loved ones being present at the most important day of the student's life. The event marked the beginning of the end-high school gradu- ation. .V 34-Seniors Carmen Grice Robert Griffin Carol Grissom Margaret Guerra Julia Guillen Cindy Gury Tony Haas Susy Hadley Deena Hagler Clay Hale Tina Hambleton Monte Hamilton , f1'QEFHE:vizl rt"'Wt 4 .

College Night, held on October 15, at Cooper High gave both juniors and seniors an opportunity to become more informed as to college life, rules, policies and cost. It also made students aware of the many aspects of financial aid available, a major concern for all. Representatives from Texas colleges and universities were helpful in informing prospective students of the many oppor- tunities that the schools had to offer. After the decision to attend college was made, students were then faced with entrance procedures. Tests, tests and more tests were required for all entering freshman college students. After preliminary testing through the PSAT fPreliminary Scholastic Aptitude Testi during the junior year, seniors continued their testing by taking the ACT fAmerican College Testingj and the SAT QScholastic Aptitude Testi. Taken at area high schools and universities, these tests were indications of past or future accom- plishments. Although most seniors were unaware of it, they were allowed two excused absences from school to visit a college or university. Some students took advantage to travel out of town to compare schools such as Texas Tech in Lubbock, University of Texas at Austin or San Angelo State University at San Angelo. After choosing a college, seniors faced the tasks of filling out forms and applica- tions. Decisions concerning where to live, what to choose as a major and how to pay had once seemed remote and distant. These choices were just the first of many which seniors at Abilene High had to make to determine their future. 3 ' A M , Q .

"Thank you." "Come back and see us." Sound familiar? The average working teenager never misunderstood the familiar courtesy needed for after school job success. Following national trends, a very large per- cent of the Abilene youth were involved in the field of employment. jobs existed in many forms for the Abilene High students including bank tellers, oilfield workers, secretarial workers, and most often, fast food servers. Amazingly, students who were already involved in a variety of community and school activities found time to work. Of course when asked, the youth would surely reply that attending school during the day and handling aiob after school and on week- ends was a difficult task. But as inflation quickly dissolved available funds, an after school job came in handy in spite of the long hours required. finance amusements Many students were minors and could not be particular in choosing a job since they stood near the bottom of the labor force. Most inexperienced young people were found working in the fast food industry which seemed to be the heaviest field for employment. Pizza, hamburgers, and tacos became their specialties as financial success became a reality. Yet a job plus school took a lot of time and energy and often took away time for fun and games. Working every day reduced the time for school involvement and home- work. Although most teachers seem to realize the struggle, few showed pity for the student seeking financial independence. Seemingly impossible, the tasks of work and school were accomplished as Abilene High students gave the time and effort to work in order to make money while they hoped to finish their three years of high school.

"That was our last dedication of the hour, and now for a word from our sponsor." "Wow, there's more to this radio station than l expected. ls that next turntable ready?" Being given a major radio station like KRBC for a day, kept AHS seniors busy for a month. Preparation started at the first of january for senior radio day to be held on February 3. The Class of '79 began by selling ads to any and all businesses around Abilene that would buy them. After some discussion, it was decided to exclude liquor stores. Other duties included writing commercials and typing. The search for D. j.'s began. Tryouts for this coveted position were held before and after school in the speech room. To qualify the senior had to have sold ads. Disc jockeys were divided into groups arid assigned one hour of air time. Student written commercials delighted and enter- tained listeners as AHS controlled the radio waves from 1:00 p. m. until 1:00 a. m. Sales for the event were highly success- ful with the grand total being 52336. This amount broke the record at KRBC for the most sales ever made for any previous radio day. These funds were used for senior activ- ities including the first senior prom ever held at Abilene High, the annual senior picnic and the senior Six Flagstrip. The class of '79 concluded February 3 with the most successful senior radio day ever held.

An Abilene High government teacher, Mrs. Nelda Macon stated that one of many class projects the students had a choice of completing was participating in a political campaign. Government students began as early as the spring of 1978 to work in political cam- paigns. Many chose to continue working in the primaries for candidate representatives to the l7th Congressional District. Students once introduced into the political process found that addiction to participation rapidly followed. Interest in their candidates prompted them to attend rallies and public appearances by the candi- dates they were supporting even after their projects were finished. Some students attended dinners to support their candidates. These students worked by parking cars, distributing literature and doing just about anything which was needed. In return for their hard work, they occasionally received a free meal or more often a hardy "thank you." By actively participating in the political process, many Abilene High students dis- covered another part of the American way oflife.

With prodigious amounts of door knocking and phone calling, each side tried valiantly to convert the public to the righteousness of their side. ln the final sumation, however, the wet side came out on top. With the new laws, many students found themselves laid off or had their duties restricted due to the 18-year-old serving law. With the laws prohibiting people under 18 years old from serving or buying alcoholic beverages, many faced temptation. Parents became worried that their children would be influenced to drink at a younger age. How- ever by the end of the school year, high school drinking seemed no more or less a problem than in times past. While the opposing factions were slugging it out over the wetdry issue, the weather truly became wet. In August of 1978, the skies opened up and a contem- porary version of the flood came forth. Abilene streets were curb deep in the rusty running water. Higher places suffered only continual rain, however, lower areas were transformed into a virtual inland sea. For some in the lower areas leaving was the only answer. When the water subsided, flood damage became a serious problem as many people returned to their homes to clean up. Even- tually, alleviation came in the form of disaster relief. Between drought, flood, fire, famine, elections, earthquakes and general life, the students of AHS survived. The memorable year, 1978-'79 remained a year of extremes from wet to dry from dry to wet. All in all, AHS students showed a remarkable sense of versatility and adaptability to the problems of a changing west Texas society. 4 ,Xt 1.

These events emphasized the world of reality by interrupting daily life. Whenever a maga- zine or newspaper appeared, whenever a radio or television was turned on, the harsh reality of national events faced students. Emerging from California, cult leader Rev. jim jones wrought his own paranoid apocalypse in the jungle of Guyana by first triggering the assassinations of a Con- gressman and major media representatives. Next jones led more than 900 ofhis believers in a mass poisoning suicide. The idealistic dream of hundreds of cultists turned into a hellish nightmare as men, women and children died. Trying to save the dollar, while risking a recession, President jimmy Carter's anti- inflation program was criticized throughout the nation. While higher interest rates stirred fears of at least a mild recession during 1979, the administration hoped that the political backlash would not be too damaging. However, jimmy Carter's popular- ity was born again after thirteen days at Camp David where he fashioned a frame- work for peace in the struggling Middle East. Carter's position among Americans was once again questioned during the early days of 1979 when he stated that newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst needed no further rehabil- itation. Carter granted executive clemency freeing Miss Hearst, perhaps the nations most celebrated federal prisoner, and com- muted her seven year sentence for bank robbery. Also during the early days of 1979, the death of former Vice President Nelson Rockefeller shocked America. Known as the nationis wealthiest man, Rockefeller has served four terms as governor of the power- ful state of New York. With his death from a heart attack, came the end of the seventy year dream of Nelson Rockefeller as Presi- dent. Another shock came to Americans when, over 150 airplane passengers were killed as a result of a mid-air collission of a Pacific Southwest Airlines jetliner and a single engine plane over San Diego, Cali- fornia. The accident, which caused more fatalities than any other aviation accident in U. S. history, became the impetus for stricter ground control laws at all airports. As the students faced these national events, they also faced the growing respon- sibility of taking their places in the demo- cratic republic of America. For the time being, many students only read or saw recordings of the events which made the nation what it was. However, very soon, places of leadership and responsibility were to be filled by them.

Feeling the blow, the Catholic Church suffered the loss of two Popes. Pope Paul Vl died on Sunday, August sixth, with his successor, john Paul l, dying after reigning only 33 days. After the death of john Paul l, came the election of the first non-Italian Pope in 400 years. ln fact john Paul ll became the first Pope ever to come from behind the lron Curtain. Also suffering severe effects, the Shaw of Iran left his country after mounting pro- test plagued his reign for several months. Strikes and protests closed universities and secondary schools and caused the petroleum output to flag, creating a cash shortage. Some critics felt that the Shaw had pushed his country too quickly toward moderniza- tion and Westernism. One of the more optimistic changes of the year came with the signing of the Camp David Peace Treaty Agreement between lsrael and Egypt. Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egypt's Anwar Sad at were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their effort in world peace. On the sadder side, lsrael suffered the loss of their former Prime Minister Golda Meir. Raised in Milwaukee, Golda had returned to Israel in 1921 to live in Palestine. She was lsrael's first ambassador to the USSR, a minister of labor, a foreign minister and Prime Minister for five years. After retiring from her position as Prime Minister, she remained very politically involved in world affairs until her death from cancer. As strides toward peace were sought in the Middle East, the results of war were felt across the world. Cambodia and Vietnam were battling it out in Asia under the discreet control of Russia and China. With Russia's help, the conquest of Cambodia was inevi- table, Still, the struggle for Asia remained between Russia and China. Also in Asia, refugees set sail in the ocean and remained adrift until some sympathetic country would allow them to enter. Commonly known as the Boat People, they made headlines in their quest for free- dom. Many died, but a few made it to safety in neighboring countries. Although history was being made right before their eyes, most AHS students remained apathetic about world events.

Coming from all over the world, they represented various con- tinents. Tammy Yoshihara, an official exchange student from japan, came to Abilene in August of 1978. As a result of doing well on an exchange club test, Tammy left her family, friends and genuine oriental food to live in the United States. Since her arrival, she had been impressed with the people of Abilene and thought that they were extremely friendly. One difference that she particularly noticed was the cars traveling on the right side of the road instead of on the left as in japan. However, everything was not different for Tammy's favorite hangout in japan was Dunkin' Doughnuts. After gradua- tion, Tammy planned to attend a business school in japan. At the same time Tammy was moving in with her adopted American parents, Thomas De Costa was moving to Abilene from Brazil. When his mother received an opportunity to teach in the U. S., he came too. An early difference that he noticed in his American friends was that they did more of their own thing than his friends in Brazil. Thomas especially missed the beaches and the four hour school day which he left in South America. judy Lynn came to America after living in Canada for two years. Originally from Taiwan, she felt very proud of her country and was disappointed with the United States agreement with China. She felt this would adversally affect relationships with Taiwan. ln comparing Canadian and Taiwanese schools to American schools, judy thought the curriculum was easiest in America than anywhere she had studied because there were not so many demands put on the students. Coming from Tehran, Iran, Shawn Pariai arrived in America on March 15, 1978. His original plans were to come to America for his last year of high school so his entry into a U. S. college would be easier. ln about his returning to Iran in light political strife, he said, "I was going to but l don't know now. lt depends on happens in my country." Shawn that the people in Abilene were friendly than other Americans because felt they were more Christian. ln order to keep up with his hobby, Shawn played soccer with HSU ACU teams since AHS had no team. Visiting AHS for a week, six em students and their sponsor came Monterey, Mexico to spend time in an Amer ican school. While they were here they able to participate in many activities, one which was a pep rally. During March, part the AHS exchange club journeyed to to participate in the Mexican school system. While some of the foreign students stayed a week at AHS, the affect AHS on them would last a lifetime because they like many others since 1888, were a part Eagle Spirit.

Religion was the strength that many students thrived upon, and the city of Abilene was symbolic of religion and belief. With H18 Protestant churches, three Catho- lic churches, one jewish temple, two parochial universities and one parochial college, Abilene offered peace of mind to those who yearned for companionship and the giving of themselves, Meaningful friendships were established as students experienced a different dimen- sion of life. Once lonely, they found togeth- erness on ski retreats, in puppet programs, at handbell choirs, with basketball or base- ball competitions or in huddle groups and Sunday schools. Through organizations such as the Sonseekers, Episcopal Youth Church- men, United Methodists Youth, Christ for All, Catholic Youth Organization, Young Life and the Christian Club, many found companionship and inspiration needed to face life in the changing world of unstable values.

Religion-5 3 Jubilance lifts spirit Long before Saint Nick was out per- forming the traditional Christmas Eve rituals, AHS was busy attempting to spread the Christmas spirit everywhere. Trying to forget the haunting echo of "ten more shopping days until Christmas," both students and administrators planned exciting, ecstatic events to ease mounting tensions mutually shared. The usual parties in first period ranged from talking and fighting over the last donut to sitting outside in an unusual costume. With Santa and Mrs. Claus from the photog- raphy class gaining betweenclass attention, students soon felt the renewed spirit of Christmas. Assemblies consisted of the choir and orchestra performing Christmas carols together along with the traditional Santa Claus portrayed by Nlr. Lee Abernathy. The AHS choir also performed at Citizens National Bank to spread the spirit felt by students to the Abilenians. Of course, many students exchanged gifts among them- selves and occasionally surprised a teacher with a well meaning gift on the last day of school for l978. Wherever students and administrators sought out their feelings of Christmas spirit, they could also rely on the activities held at AHS to express the merriment of the most memorable holiday of the year.

Three times on snowy or icy days, schools were dismissed giving teachers and students extra holidays. However hazardous road conditions played no favorites as students were among the many who received dents or even worse to their cars. Surprisingly the Abilene Police Department recorded more wrecks during these days than at any previous time. Cold winds and sleet hit the Abilene area on December 30 and stayed to prolong the holidays because of freezing temper- atures. Slick streets caused the cancellation of all scheduled school activities. Basketball games were cancelled all across the Big Country, interrupting the Eagle schedule also., When school resumed low temperatures caused track and baseball teams. to, practice i5n.si.d.e the buildings as administrators raced to, re-schedule events to an already burdened calendar. Almost a month later, winter struck again when four inches of snow covered the city. Familiar scenes of stranded, dented cars dotted the highways and school was once again dismissed. Through it all, many people found time to enjoy the benefits ofthe season by having snow fights, cutting donuts in abandoned parking lots, sliding down the banks of over- passes on cardboard, but most important by just being out of school.

When asked why she wanted to serve as an officer for the juniors, Maria Martin said, "I thought it would be better to serve in an office and try to get things done, rather than gripe about things not getting done." Along with the junior class sponsor, Mrs. Linda Thomason, officers David Wolfe, Reggie james, Maria Martin, Kim Pierce and Karen Fuller helped spur the juniors on to victory in Sing Song '78 winning first place in costume and vocal competition. Among some of the junior activities anticipated for the year were a spring dance, an end of school formal, and a junior picnic. Although the junior class was often over- shadowed by the seniors, the 1979 year reflected that when determined the middle class could succeed. While officers were planning the year's activities, future seniors ordered their class rings. Abilene jewelers were kept busy com- pleting the orders for the many ring designs. Separating the individual from the crowd, a junior could place his order for his own special style having the bearer's name, a different cut stone in a new setting, and of course the proud Abilene High Eagle. The class ring was just one of the ways a student at Abilene High showed his school spirit and support.

Since students were required by state law to attend school l75 days out ofa year, additional days were set aside by the AISD to make up the bad weather days. After much speculation and discussion, students, teachers and administration were asked to give up one Saturday, the first day of spring break, and Good Friday to comply with the state requirement for attendance. Undoubt- edly, the hardest make-up day was Saturday, March 3. Attendance reflected the general atti- tude of students since, according to the Abilene Reporter-News, over 250 students were absent that day. Although regular classes were held, regulations were lax, and students participated in such activities as roaming the halls and playing cards. During the two Friday make-up days, classes were much the same as usual. Most teachers carried on with normal class planning on those days. While a great many unusual things happened during the i978-'79 school year, going to school on a Saturday was something AHS students would not soon forget.

Through representation of each home- room, student council members worked dili- gently for change and enrichment in school life. Getting more people involved in the activities of the school served as the main goal of the Student Council, so during the i978-'79 school year, the Student Council sponsored several activities. Among these were the sophomore orientation, Thanks- giving baskets to many needy families,home- room door decorating for Christmas, teacher appreciation days, participation in Sing Song and involvement in Homecoming activities. The Student Council also hosted the Abilene- Cooper High student exchange before the football game against Cooper High. Taking part in disco dances and the KAHS Radio Station were also major projects. Qualities of leadership, citizenship and dependability were necessary in coordinating these special activities, and each Student Council officer displayed these important qualities.

Started by means of the fundamental processess of starting a day, a teachers day acquired a new conception as the morning meal was prepared, the appropriation of people at the appointed time and destination occurred and the arrival at Abilene High as the last point of travel, and thus began the teacher's day. Classroom enrollment for the five classes taught daily averaged thirty students per period. Thus, for the first 55 minutes a teacher's lesson plan was instigated. For the remaining 225 minutes, teachers reported the process of notes, class discussion, assign- ments and questions to an often sorted con- glomeration of students with disinterested attitudes. To the avail of some students, teachers persevered throughout the minutes W through faculty lives in the struggle to teach. Yet, just as students aquired a break in the afternoon, so did teachers, and although some ventured out- side the sheltered life of Abilene High to brave the depths of Dos Amigos, a larger majority remained behind to face challenges of the cafeteria and save some money. Teachers were also given a mere hour for conferences with parents. Since parents often passed by the time for personal reasons, teachers often used the time for drafting lesson plans, grading papers or pondering classroom situations. Yet, in a lone hour, few papers were graded and so often students had faded away. Teachers then began the rituals of grading, planning and hopingffor a time of relaxation. So, in as much as the breaks were plan- ned for students' benefits, likewise were they for teachers, as an often abused majority lay exhausted by the accepted practices of "in my days" . . . ..

Although administrators represented discipline and control, their private lives revealed that there was more behind the school scene than work. According to many office workers, the hardest work at Abilene High was Mr. Lomax's job as principal. He had many responsibilities, one of which was simply to run the school. Although lVlr. Lomax had many duties, he also had time for some every- day pleasures. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and even stated that jimmy Stewart was his favorite of all actors, present and past. Another hard worker at Abilene High was Mr. Chester lVlcAlpin who filled the role of vice principal.

Fu humming his favorite tunes while he worked, lVlr. lVlcAlpin was always busy with school and its activities. Nlr. NlcAlpin enjoyed hunt- ing and loading his own shotgun shells. Filling the position of assistant principal was Mr. Charles Perkins. Mr. Perkins was responsible for textbooks and the lunch room and snack bar. ln his pastime lVlr. Perkins enjoyed his favorite hobby, garden- ing. Mr. Perkins especially enjoyed watching actor Charles Bronson whom he favored above all other actors. At one time or another, all students had to visit the Dean's office. Naturally, every- one knew Mr. Lynn Nichols, Dean of Stu- dents. He guided students inthe planning of activities and assemblies. He was also heard daily over the P. A. giving the morning announcements. Mr. Nichols found content- ment in buying, selling and restoring antiques. Who was his favorite movie star, he made no hesitation in saying Sean Connary. Although most students felt that admin- istrators only worked, many actually found time for pleasurable activities which were often enjoyed by all humans. 1.

Windows rattled and pictures fell. As he echo died, the student was left with an mpty feeling. The same old thing, it appened over and over again. Anytime a omplaint about school had been voiced the ame worn out phrase had been utilized. "You think you have it bad. Well l ork!" This statement had ended many iscussions between student and parent. School was work. While 30 years of 'ime may have erased the pains and left only ood memories for parents, for those stu- ents who were going to school, it was still lain, out and out work. Being on time to class was a major issue, or it had to be done seven times daily. To e just two seconds late was to be in trouble. ith only three tardies, any student was everely reprimanded, and with five tardies he parents were called. Competition for good "pay" was fierce. Only a hallowed few reached the pay scale of the much wanted "A", Those who did not measure up, fell into the ranks of B-D and sometimes below. This competition, plus the pressures of getting into college made for tension and worries. However, for some, all these prob- lcms were multiplied tenfold. With gas prices increasing continually and prices in general skyrocketing, many stu- dents had to take jobs just to make ends meet. The worries of school were com- pounded by the new job often causing a drop in grades. With a drop in grades, more pressures were brought to bear. With all these pressures plus other incidental heartbreaks along the way, adolescent life was very hard for the over 2,000 at Abilene High. 4 X X f f l m ' Xi . ll i W , we . i ' . -- y , ,I 29411 I X 0' .ff 1 Y sf '- it frff r ,Q X X H. , U .f a E A I .

On the average, inflation continued in an upward motion and unlike common sense, so did dating. A typical Friday or Staurday night date normally began with a movie, which, includ- ing tickets and refreshments, came to approximately ten dollars, unless students desired other attractions with steeper interests, appeal and price. After the movie, came the evening meal, and depending on finances ranged from a Big Nlac at McDonald's to a steak at the Pelican. The latter was anticipated, but McDonald's became reality. To the avail of Abilene High students, the meal quickly disappeared and so had five to ten dollars. ln true Abilene style, the drag was next on the agenda of events, and thus the gas gauge regressed, as friendships increased. So as the night came to an end, and the evening activities reviewed, daters came to the realization that twenty dollars had vanished, but the memories remained. After all, students worked hard at school and jobs, and although the price of relaxation was steep, it was well worth it.

Selected by the annually televised People's Choice Awards, "Mash" won the nomination for the established comedy series with "Mork 84 Mindy" receiving the honor for the new comedy of '78, For the dramatic television series it was competition between "Little House on the Prairie" and "Battlestar Galactica." Alan Alda, Hawk-eye of "Mash" and Robin Williams, Mork of "Mork and Mindy" came out on top with the People's Choice Awards for the best male actors on TV. The outstanding female actresses on television were comedians Carol Burnett and Mary Tyler Moore with Pam Dawber, Mindy of t'Mork and Mindy," who came up as the new female star. Grease, a picture depicting teen-agcrs in the i950 era, won the award for the best musical motion picture of the year linked with the most widely received non-musical movie for '78, National Lampoons Animal House, which portrayed life in a rowdy college fraternity. Favorite actor and actress in the motion picture business were film stars Burt Reynolds and Olivia Newton- john. The People's Choice Awards chose Andy Gibb and Billy joel for top male vocalists with their female counterpart country singer Olivia Newton-john receiving the honor also. Top songs of the nation with the highest record sales were "Three Times A Lady," "Hot Child in the City," and "Double Vision." These songs won the nominations by the poll of young people twelve to twenty-one years old. Of course, the young people at Abilene High remained loyal to their school as they continued to vote AHS the nation's top school. lv Tim Walker Anna Warren Scott Warren Karen Washington Eric Watson Susan Watts Brad Welch Darla Welch X ff' rntlre ,li f Gary Westbrooks Tonya Wheeler Teri Whetstone Brent Whitaker Buck Whitehead John Whitehouse Charlie Whitliy Diane Whitney Sheila Wiley Edwin Williams John Williams Mike Williams Jr. Randy Williams T.

Disco jockeys tryouts were selected by the D.l. committee, Disco jockeys rotated approximately every two weeks with a train- ing period in between. Serving as a D.l. allowed students to employ their imagina- tions and speaking abilities. Many students helped with the develop- ment of the program.

Other positions included business manager, joy Hulettg publicity manager, Nelson -Coates, and construction chairman David Wolfe, Lon jones and Steve Nlowery.

Of course, the hardest change to adjust to was starting over at the bottom again only to work up. The larger high school campus also affected the daily routine of sophomores. Off campus lunch was a step forward for those who had a car and license, but not for those who had a license but no car. Guiding this group of struggling adoles- cents, the sophomore class officers provided the leadership necessary of the traditional underdogs. The sophomore officers not only gained knowledge and endurance while working on the annual musical production of Sing Song but also made many new friends as they worked together. Both the class and its officers sought to make sophomores accepted and welcomed on the campus, but as class vice president jackie Flores commented, "The sophomore class is the largest class, but it has the smallest amount of influence. So we really have a hard time expressing ourselves."

With these also came the most important elections held at Abilene High-the elections of Student Council officers and the Cheer- leaders. Designed after official state, county and local elections, student council elections were complete with voter registration, precincts and voting machines. Mr. Wes O'Dell and Student Council officers thought the new way would be a good experience for the students to prepare them for voting in Taylor County elections. Also held during spring were cheerleader elections. Although only twelve girls tried out, the competition was stiff. The girls started workouts on March 26 and continued until April l2. On April l3 after a dual assembly where the girls demonstrated their abilities, the elections were held. The dedi- cated girls who won the spot for cheerleaders of l979-'80 were Cathy Carver, Cynthia Willis, Kim Pierce, Michelle Mahaney, loAnn Patino and Rhoegina Deatherage. The excite- ment came with tears of both joy and sadness. The experience made lastning friends, as the girls realize that the next year would bring times of working together.

Taxing their imaginations to the utmost, seniors reached deep into the well of talent and brought forth great draughs of unprecedented greatness. The great outpouring of skill and humor signaled the beginning of the end for many of the graduating class. There were, however, a few highlights to the seemingly endless parade of amateurish skits and acts. Some of the acts consisted of a flute solo, "Nadia's Theme" by Linda Ablesg the Blue Brothers by Teri Hawkins, Steve Couch, Randy Davis, David Armandariz, a solo theme from Ice Castles by Clay Hale, a solo theme, "I Feel the Earth Move" by Kathy Martin and many other acts which continually kept students laughing.

May fourth was glamorized, romanticized and electrified throughout the entire yearg it was the first prom in Abilene High School history. Seniors took a brief break before descending to the ballroom after thoroughly consuming a delicious catered banquet dinner. The band Shade Tree supplied the atmosphere for the flurry of ecstatic move- ments on the dance floor. Amid the spine- tingling disco vibrations from the band, the couples swayed in breath-taking sensation- alism. The dance floor was the center of sparkling titillation until the magic hour of midnight emerged. The stroke of twelve ended the dreamlike vision that had continuously been created.

The senior picnic day was held during the final days before graduation. While underclassmen attended regular classes, seniors were arriving at Abilene State Park eager and waiting for a day of activities for everyone. Seniors were divided into teams desig- nated as red, green, blue and yellow with each battling for the honor of victory. The activity schedule was filled with a three inning softball game wher.e guys batted with the opposite hand from which they normally used. Other events included relay races, tug-of-war, volleyball and the infamous egg toss won by Richard Flores and his partner. After totaling the points, the red team led by team captain Nelson Coates was declared the winner. At 12:15 p. m., everyone called a truce and ate a hearty lunch catered by Mack Eplen's. Finally the picnic was over, and after lingering and talking, everyone gathered in their cars to make the return to Abilene.

Year after year the seniors traveled the long road from Abilene to Six Flags. This trip had been an Abilene High senior tradition since l973. Along with their fourteen sponsors, the seniors boarded nine buses at 7:00 a. m. on Friday morning, May 25. The day was spent enjoying rides, drinking Cokes, attending shows, eating hot dogs and taking Rolaids. When 7:00 p. m. rolled around, all of the sun roasted seniors boarded the buses and rested from their long day during the long trip home. :ami N lioitlrl 2 Mary Neito Tony Northrup Dana Nuber Mark Oates Annette Odell Tony Odom Susan Ogle Cynthia Oliver Sonthavil Olson Jeff O'neil Daniel O'niel Carlos Ortega Kathi Otto Toni Owens Susy Oxford Carla Page Ruben Pallarez Bill Parker Kara Parker ,Q Mike Parrott Gary Paschall Patricia Lyons Quinton Peeples Ray Pemperton 88-Sophomores 1.

Even though the entire school year was busy, the majority of activities were performed during the final month. Manda- tory programs such as baccalaureate services, final examinations, and graduation exer- cises led an extensive list of activities in which to participate. Ordering materials dealing with gradu- ation was another task which was time con- suming to the seniors. A special committee consisting of administrators and seniors was given the chance to select and design a new pattern for the i979 invitations. Numerous seniors ordered invitations to send to rela- tives and close friends for them to witness the special occasions. Other items which were a must for graduates, were the caps and gowns. However, some activities were required of the graduating seniors. Such examples were the senior follies production, the seniors picnic and the senior trip to Six Flags. Most seniors commented on the fact: "Graduating is the most expensive time of a person's educational period." But with all of the trials and tribulations of being a senior, the moments shared during the last year in high school would live on in the memories of many.

Twelve years of labor were about to come to an end in an hour long ceremony. Lining up for the last time, seniors fidgeted while waiting for their names to be called. With last minute adjustments to cap and gown, the students walked out, shook the hand of Vice Principals Charles Perkins and Chester lVlcAlpin. As the minutes passed, seniors realized the finality of their high school years. As the ceremony ended and individuals gathered in smaller groups, some realized for the first time, that they would probably never see some of the surrounding faces again. Amid mixed feelings graduates headed home or to all night parties. The joy of being through with twelve years of schooling mingled with apprehension of the future and sadness of leaving behind a major part of their lives. At parties seniors reminisced and promised to keep in touch, an extremely hard task to complete. For some there was almost no respite as they started college during the first summer session, for others, however, a full time job was immediately begun. With a little fanfare, pomp and circum- stance, and almost no bang, the class of 1979 abandoned the corridors and rooms of AHS never to return again.

A trial of skill or ability, a contest The name of the game was sports, the object of that game was competition. The striving was against friends to become a varsity member, against teams to defeat their hopes of victory and against odds to attain some type of recognition. Sports represented the union of the school to support the athletes to a victorious destination. As school began so did the concentra- tion needed to attain the previous years' accomplishments and the urge to push farther up the ladder of success. The summer workouts, the practice before, during and after school soon came to dominate the life of the athlete as the program became dominant and the thought of victory came to be the total unification of the school and the community. The athlete who was the symbol of Abilene High to so many in the community was also the one who dedicated time, sweat, energy, peace of mind and pain to the enjoy- ment and fulfillment of themselves and others. Victory was wished for those who survived the workouts and the suffering, for the true athletes of Abilene High. D 1.

Athletics-107 Eagle feet fly to fast cross country finish Contributing to Abilene High in a run- about way, the men's and women's cross country teams conditioned and competed in several exciting meets. Beginning late in the summer, both teams started the long road toward district and regionals. Stretching and running about eight miles around Abilene constituted the minimum daily requirements from men's coach, Lindon Gaithright and women's coach, janet Hindman. In order to strengthen legs, weight training was included in the average workout. Second year coach Gaithright directed the young Eagle team through a respectable season finishing 6th in district. The women's team led by Coach Hindman came through with a Sth in district. Two regional qualifiers, Karen Pekowski and Greg Carter continued on to the regional meet in Lubbock and represented A.H.S. with out- standing performances. Though not as much of a spectator sport as track, cross country helped to pre- pare both men and women for the upcoming track season by conditioning long distance runners. Competition was ierce, but the Eagles placed high in meets from Big Spring to San Angelo. In summarizing the season, Coach janet Hindman said, "our team was extremely inexperienced, but each member improved and gained a new interest in cross country which will help their track performances. 108-S ports ,getggtz-saga:-at " .X ", an-.1 .1 4, Q . , f -. i'fg sw-qi'-1.

The Eagles combined a solid ground game with an explosive pass- ing attack led by quarterback Angel Munoz to stifle Raider's hopes of the first season win. Riding the momentum created by their first victory, the Abilene Eagles headed south to face Stephen F. Austin. Again the underdogs, the Eagles proved pregame pre- dictions wrong as they slaughtered the Maroons 27-7. AHS passed for l50 yards including all four of its touchdowns and 5 utilized Maroon mistakes to gain advance- ments. Facing the number one ranked team in Texas, the Temple Wildcats, was an insur- mountable task for the Eagles. Abilene High forced Temple into punting situations on their first three possessions but inevitably succumbed to the Wildcats relentless offen- sive assault.The Wildcats took a 21L0 lead by halftime and continued to run up the score with a 75-yard drive, and 87-yard punt return and another fourth quarter touch- down. The final buzzer sounded to a dis- appointed Eagle team, defeated 49-0 for their first loss of the season. 6 1.

The first quarter left the Eagles with a slim six point lead on a twenty yard run by tailback Reggie Fields. The extra point attempt failed because of an off kick by place kicker David Perry. ln the second quarter tailback Reggie Fields showed why he was later named the district's leading rusher. He surprised fans by scoring two more touchdowns on 14 and 1 yard runs giving the Eagles a 19-0 lead at the half. The Eagles were shut out in the third quarter while Big Spring managed to close the gap to 19-7. When it came time for the fourth quarter, the Eagles were on the move again making the final score 38-15. Odessa Permian mania known as "Mojo Power" wiped clean the hopes of the Eagles for two out of three to defeat the longtime powerhouse of Dis- trict 5-AAAA. The game was one of many mistakes mostly on the part of the Eagles. Except for a fumble by Permian early in the first quarter which led to a field goal by David Perry, the game fell into the waiting paws of the Permian panthers. Coming out with a 3-3 tie in the third quarter, the Eagles soon loost all hope of being District 5-AAAA champions. When time ran out, the Panthers had defeated the Eagles 24-3. A lot more than a one-sided game faced the Bulldogs when AHS traveled to Midland High during the middle of the football season. Abilene High led in every category from total yards to fumbles. The Abilene defense managed to deny Midland the opportunity to gain substantial yardage in the air or on the ground. The Abilene offense put together 27 points to defeat the Bulldogs 27-8. e ies YI -nlqr' AQ an 4 Chuck Dubose Brad Faulkner Reggie Fields Richard Flores Vince Ford Wes Gorman Ben Henkhaus Todd James Mike Jones Dee McLaughlin Football-113 Eagles snatch three more back to back In a game marred by penalties, Abilene High defeated the Midland Lee Rebels, 23-14. All in all, 176 yards offlags fell with 105 yards marked against Midland Lee and 71 yards against Abilene. Abilene High's first scoring drive ended when quarterback Loyal Proffitt hit tightend Les Bruce with a ten yard pass making the score 7-O. The Rebels immediately gained revenge with an 80-yard drive capped with a 64-yard bomb from quarterback Gary Burler to wide receiver john White. Abilene again scored to break the tie before the half ended and went in with a 13-7 lead. However, the Rebels took the lead in the second half on a 9-yard run by fullback Mark McCowan. Later a fumble resulted in a 32-yard field goal putting the Eagles back on top to stay 16-14. The icing on the cake came when Proffitt found tightend David Russell for an 8-yard touchdown. A week later Homecoming proved just as successful. While jamie Farmer was being crowned Homecoming Queen, the Eagles were beating the Odessa Broncos, 24-20. The game went right down to the wire, until the Broncos were finally stopped on the third down with two yards needed and about three minutes left in the game. Abilene had another possible opportunity to score, but elected to run out the clock and avoid any turnovers. The following week at San Angelo, the Eagles outplayed the Bobcats, 21-15. Angelo outgained Abilene 390 yards to 232, but the difference proved to be an 80-yard run by running back Dee McLaughlin.

With the help of their coaching staff, which had a combined total of 76 years athletic experience, they were deter- mined to do their best. The Abilene High Eagles met the Cooper Coogers at Shotwell stadium to begin the eighteenth faceoff between the two 5-AAAA schools. The Eagles lined up with the wind in their face ready to receive the ball from the Coogers. Watching intently during the first-half of play, the Warbirds examined the Coogers team plan for flaws and gaping holes. The Eagle defense managed to hold their own throughout the first two quarters of play as the scoreboard read 6-7 at halftime in favor of the Coogs. Throughout the thirdquarter the Eagles worked to keep their game alive. Quarter- back Loyal Proffitt worked hard to suppress the Cooger defense and momentum despite the water which accumulated on the field before game time. The closely fought struggle for supremacy kept the Eagles and Coogers on their toes throughout the evening, but despite the Warbirds gallant effort the evening ended with a score of 21-14 in favor of Cooper. For the thirteenth straight time, the sweet taste of glorious revenge edged away from Abilene High. VA RS lTY FOOTBALL OPPONENT Rider Stephen F.

V. surprises district The AHS junior varsity football team combined strength and strategy to achieve a 5 and 4 season record. ln the first game of the 1978 season, AHS provided a highly defensive game which gave an end result of an 8-6 win over the Sari Angelo Bobcats. At the Big Spring game, Big Spring was engulfed by the Eagles' offensive with a final score of 20-6. Odessa Permian cracked the Eagles confidence with an impressive 39 to O victory, but this only made the Warbirds retaliate with a 40-6 win over Midland High the following week. In later games Abilene High shattered San Angelo and Midland Lee with scores of 42-18 and 18-6 respectively. Despite the Eagles anticipation of a victory over their crosstown rivals, the Cooper Coogers, the Eagles lost by a score of 55-25.

The most frequent answer was, of course, the cheerleaders and Eagle squad. From the beginning of the summer of 1978, the cheerleaders started their work by attending a special summer camp for cheer- leaders at East Texas State University. This prepared the cheerleaders for the major job of boosting spirit in store for them during 1978-79. Eagle Squad aided the cheerleaders and Bold Gold members in backing teams and encouraging spirit throughout AHS. Duties of the Eagle Squad consisted of changing the marquise and carrying the spirit flags during football games. The spirit flags, bought by the Abilene Boosters Club, were a new addition to the campus and gave a fresh look to the spirit leaders' activities. The challenges of a cheerleader or Eagle Squad member may have seemed fun and appealing for many, but hours of work and concentrated talent went into making the 1979 school year an exciting and memorable year illed with school spirit. 1 18-Sports 7 ki 1.,3.,8., Breaking the spirit sign during the Big Spring pep rally, Linda Montez leads the Eagles to their first victory. 2.

They had met a few times during the summer, but this was really the beginning ofthe i978-'79 Bold Gold. Sophomores stood in groups talking about what was to happen during the com- ing year. junior and senior members of the Bold Gold helped new members by filling them in on what would prove to be a very hectic schedule for the next three tri- mesters. Football, basketball, volleyball, pep rallies and fund raising projects were just some of the activities ahead of the girls. Section leaders Faith Whitmill, Sharon Shelton, Donna Cook, Karen Poteet and Kathlene Thompson along with Bold Gold sponsors, worked together to make all of these activities possible for the 1979 school year. These projects sounded like fun, but they actually took many hours of hard work. The girls in Bold Gold were required to learn the rules for every activity for which they participated. They also made signs for the pep rallies and competed against one another in decorating to promote spirit. The Bold Gold had many fund raising projects throughout the year. These con- sisted of selling ribbons, toboggans, spirit towels and spirit cushions. The major money raising activity sponsored by the Bold Gold was a disco dance held in the Eagle Gym. Booths run by individual squads sold refresh- ments at the dance. As a result of their hard work they earned enough money to pay for transportation to football games. For the 1978-'79 Bold Gold, the year was filled with hard work, fun, new friend- ships and many memories. 3 1 20-Sports 4 LLML ...., , T' 2 6 1.

The team centered their concentration on the game plan in order to play to their fullest abilities. Confidence also was a major factor in playing well. Similarly, consistency in strategy was impor- tant in enabling each team member to work as a part of the unit. Practice consisted ofa weary four hours a day in the summer and two and a half hours a day after school started. In spite of practice, the varsity emerged at the end of the season with a 6-19 record. Teamwork which had involved studying the opponent's offense and defense and trying to play to the opponent's weaknesses helped but was not quite enough. Along with the stressed three C's of volleyball, Paula Balanciere, an all-district senior at Abilene High, aided the team in the few victories which they had.

Basketball dismayed at district conclusion Though many Eagles had their "eyes on the ball," we were often overlooked by the enthusiastic crowds that followed the Eagle team down the district road. Overworked, abused and sometimes possessed with deflated egos, we advanced down the court, guided by trained hands, into the hoop we called home. Many nights during the fall, we suffered long emotional hours of ups and downs as the Eagles prepared for district. After much unacknowledged use,we traveled down court in gymnasiums across the district. Though the Hrst half of district was disappointing, we were carefully instructed to follow the aim of the AHS players. We were visited by the Big Spring Steers and spent more time speeding through the Eagle hoop than the opponents' bringing to the Eagles a substantial victory. A trip to Odessa Permian followed, however, the outcome was a disappointing 57-59 loss. The Warbird players continued to practice daily, tossing us into the basket from various positions on the court. They then successfully challenged Odessa High, following an upsetting 6 point loss to Midland High. Our masters continued to play exciting games that were decided only in the last minutes. We stayed in Abilene for our last three contests. All our efforts to "swish" through the Eagle baskets seemed to be foiled in the last seconds by the Bobcat team from San Angelo. Midland Lee visited the Eagle gym, but the experts trained by Coach "Tater" Boynton came back to toss us to a 58-49 victory. Our last effort of the year occured at Taylor County Coliseum against the Cooper Cougars. Even after an exciting lead for the first three quarters of the game, the Cougars stole us away and dumped us through their baskets twice in the last seconds of the season to win over the Eagle men. As we said goodbye to our faithful friends of the 1979 basketball team, we anxiously looked past our spring in the closet to the upcoming summer workouts of the 1980 men's basketball team.

Spectators were awed by the progress put forth by the roundballers. Never before in the history of women's basketball had there been a more successful season than in the 1978-'79 school year. The second half of seasonal play began with a win over the Big Spring Steers with a score of 44 to 31.

According to Coach Dub Pierce, the record was deceiving, and the team gave quite an accountable job. Although the team was predominately sophomores, Pierce said that he was pleased with their performances.

The team's workouts apparently helped them. Coach Roughton put them through severe types of training such as calisthentics, distant running, fundamental drills and weight training. These laborious practices usually lasted one to two hours per day and greatly influenced the team's performance. According to Coach Roughton, the team had several strengths. Their quickness and aggressiveness on offense fortified their zone defenses. However, the team was not with- out their weaknesses, Passing and receiving were the areas which their coach hoped to improve. Expectations for a more successful i980 season were high. With all of their starters coming back, along with some new girls coming up, the team felt they would have the experience to make an impressive showing.

The so called "fish" of Abilene High School used strenuous twoea-day workouts to obtain their goals. During the two-a-day workouts, the swimmers were able to swim anywhere from 5000 to 8000 yards. Besides just swimming, the AHS swim team ran and worked in their weight program. A good mental attitude and a will to be the best, motivated the swimmers. These few athletes were among those who had to totally dedicate themselves to their sport and area of specialty. After slowly decreasing in the numbers from the T978 season, the AHS swimming team owed much to those who supported them throughout the T979 season. Especially supportive of the team were the cheerleaders, and their sponsor. These people showed their loyalty by attending swim meets both in town and out of town. The cheerleaders also gave the team parties to wish them good luck and continually made spirit banners to boost the AHS swim team 's spirit. Also supporting the team, swimming coach Miss Beverly Ball gave important instruction and advice in aiding the team to victory. Swimming-137 4 1.

After two successful years of competition, over half of the varsity team members graduated, leaving a reputation of excellent gymnastics. Fortunately several sophomores such as Mark Oates and Jeanette Fuller stepped in to fill the vacancies. Under the direction of Coach Sam Seidel, the gymnasts began daily workouts during the summer in preparation for an exciting year of competition. Each gymnast strove to learn difficult tricks in an effort to create flawless and original routines. After optional routines were mastered, there were compulsory routines, sets of tricks required by the state, for each gymnast to learn on each piece of apparatus. Women gymnasts prepared for competition on the balance beam, the uneven bars, vaulting and in floor exercise. The high bar, parallel bars, rings, vault, floor and pommel horse were utilized by the male gymnasts. ln each meet, designated all-around gymnasts, Mark Oates, Keith Hardwiche, leanette Fuller and Melodi Dalrymple competed on every piece of apparatus. The season began with a pre-district meet against Sahol of Dallas. Both the mens and womens teams were victorious. District competition began the following week against Odessa Permian. Again both teams came away with wins. The top ten teams in the state were invited to the LD Bell Invita- tional in Dallas. During the competition, Abilene High's teams placed in the top five. After slaughtering Midland High School, the Eagle gymnasts met Odessa High in AHS gym. The women lost by only 4 points to the Broncos, last year's state champions. A victory was awarded to the men as they easily outscored Odessa. After a narrow defeat by San Angelo Central, the men and women continued to meet their frenzied competition schedule with a dual meet against Midland Lee. Both teams were victorious. The Cooper Cougars remained the last hurdle for the Eagles before advancing to the district meet. A heartbreaking outcome revealed a defeated Eagle team, but the real test of strength, endurance and gymnastic ability remained in district, regional and finally, state competition.

Each afternoon after coaching classes all day, Coach Sam Seidel directed the varsity gymnastics in preparation for their competition in spring. The team spent fourth period vaulting and perfecting floor routines and then returned after school to design intriguing maneuvers on each piece of apparatus. ln order to be eligible for competition, the Eagle gymnasts learned a required sequence of tricks for the compulsory routines. The men's and women's teams rotated from event to eventduringworkouts, spending an intense thirty minutes at each station. Usually an observer would notice chalk and tape flying in the midst of the flurry of activity in the confined quarters of the Abilene High gymnastics gym, Coach Seidel moved from station to station,spotting new tricks, iudging and critiquing old roua tines and giving pointers where needed. Exerting tremendous effort in workouts and competition, the Eagle gymnastics team advanced toward the state meet and achieved remarkable scores in both dual meets, district and regional competition.

One of the sports from which the AHS students benefited was football. Ten teams participated in the extra curricular activity. Of course only one team won the champion- ship and received the title of victor. The intramural football victors were from Miss lozell Brister's homeroom class which beat Mr. Bill Tittle's first period drafting class with a score of 42 to 18. Mr. Lee Abernathy's and Mrs. Louise Self's team forfeited to the team comprised of students from Mr. Phillip Lana's, Mr. john Townsend's and from Mr. Steve Perkins' homeroom, thus giving the team a third place rating. Following the football season was bas- ketball. ln this sport, ten teams represented the guys' and three teams represented the girls' of Abilene High. champions of guys' basketball. Mr. Abernathy's class received third place for beating ROTC's team with a score of 35 to 29. Mrs. Linda Hoefer's team which was made up of AHS cheerleaders were victorious over Mr. Abernathy's girls' team. The final score in the championship meet was 22 to 18. Mrs. Rhonda Hunter's team also met up with Mrs. Hoefer's team againg however the cheerleaders were victorious with a score of 16 to 15. The close score in this game caused the team from Mrs. Hunter's class to receive a second place rating. To finish the intramural year various classes come together to challenge each other in slow-pitch softball. Participating in the fast moving sport were four teams. Taking first place was Mr. Abernathy's classg the Faculty Fossils placed secondg receiving a third place rating was ROTC and catching fourth place was a combination of Mr. Esman's and Mr. Berry's homeroom's. , . 2 ' 'Q'--.Q ' I .-M4'.,a fax , Q .

N, Tennis team young but loaded with spirit With a few of the T977-'78 starters and lettermen returning, such as Reggie james, Allan Smith, Thad Decker and Pam Davidson, the Abilene High School tennis team had a season in which the matches won balanced out the number of matches lost. Led by Nlr. jerry Ticer for the previous two years, the team worked out seventh period every school day from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Starting workouts with condi- tioning drills and then leading into cross court drills, they finished workouts with matches against each other. The team was young and inexperienced but showed great team support. The morale of the AHS tennis team was as high as possible for the 1978-'79 season. Getting publicity and experience for the upcoming freshmen, the team invited the future players to workout after season with the members already playing on the tennis team. The AHS tennis team looked forward to having some district qualifiers since no one qualified for district during the i978 season. The 1979 tennis team deserved a special "job well done" for the victories they brought AHS in tennis. 7 Tennis-145 ff' , by.. A , ..-t E. 1.

K Determination helps golf team in 1978-'79 Ending its 1979 season with a sixth place finish at the district match in Odessa, Coach Lefty Cleveland's golf team averaged seventh place in all their tournaments, including invitationals and district tourna- ments. Their highest rating was at the Sweet- water lnvitationals where they placed second out of twenty-one teams. The team worked out for about two to three hours every day, when the weather permitted, at the Abilene Municipal Golf Course. During workouts, Coach Cleveland and the men worked on all the fundamentals of the game. They increased their skills in putting, driving, fairway shooting, and even choosing the right clubs. All these exercises apparently aided the team on getting along as far as they did. One standout among the golfers was senior Victor Villareal, who ended the season as second medalist in district and advanced to regional competition. The 1980 season was hoped to be as good or even better. 6 Golf-147 1, Warming up his arm before a home game is Ricky Stokes. 2.

These teams, largely from central and western Texas, added to the team's all around quality by providing challenging compe- tition. Practice officially began on the first day of February. Getting in shape, developing strategy and teamwork were all a part of this. Coach Tommy Blair, head baseball coach for the fifth year, said that one of the greatest problems encountered in pre-season resulted from having a young team. Playing a tough schedule was one of the tactics used to help the team's experience. Even with the home field advantage, the Eagles lost their first two games to W. T. White of Dallas and Lubbock Coronado with scores of I2-i and 9-l respectively. On the following Friday, the Warbirds pulled a win out of the hat with a score of 8-7 over the Kimball Knights of Dallas. During the four games following, the Eagles were defeated but with much closer margins than were evident in the first two scrimmages. Towards the end of pre-season, the Eagles began to soar upward. This was evident in the Eagles' final game of pre- season where they defeated the highly suc- cessful junior varsity team of Ranger junior College by a score of ll-9 at Blackburn Field. Coach Blair said that the Eagles would have a better season than was predicted by their 2 and 6 pre-season record since they had learned some valuable lessons during their rough schedule against some excellent Texas teams.

Feelings of excitement and anticipation were never lacking on the Eagle bench at the beginning of every game. They exhibited exemplary sportsmanship both on and off the field in their quest to capture the district title. The team, originally ranked seventh at the beginning of the season, surprised the critics and would-be prognosticators by ending the irst half occupying a well earned second place. The first district game played against Big Spring was a breeze for the Eagles as was the following game against Permian. The Eagles got their first workout and real competition against Midland High. The team displayed strength and agility which had aided them earlier in the season. The Bulldogs narrowly edged by the Eagles. However, this slump could not keep the warbirds down. They went on to victory against San Angelo, Odessa High and Midland Lee. The Cooper Cougars broke the Eagle's three game winning streak by a slight margin. The tense game with Cooper ended with the Eagles ranked second in the first half of district competition. 7 Baseball-15 1 1.

The Warbirds continued on to meet Odessa Permain in Odessa only to succumb in the t1nal minutes of the game. Midland High and Odessa High both managed to play on Abilene High's disadvantage of the previous loss and downed the Eagles in two heart- breaking games, 3-1 and 2-1 respectively. Fortunately, the team pulled together in an effort led by Mike Blackwell, club-leading batter with a ,433 batting average. San Angelo Central fell to the battering blows of the Eagles in an exciting round of innings in which the Warbirds gained a 10-2 victory. The Warbirds continued to burn up the diamond in the exciting Midland Lee game that followed. With the season coming to a close, the young team, largely composed of underclassmen, faced Cooper in Cougar territory. Unable to pull more than one run away from the Cougars, the mighty Warbirds came in for a landing behind the Cougar's three runs. Faced with an exciting and promising future, the Eagle team looked forward to the 1979-'80 season with a touch of victory on their talons.

The team placed second in the Big Country Relays, fourth in the Lubbock lnvitational Tournament, fifth in the Temple invitational and irst in the Brownwood meet. There were several standouts. For example, senior Monte Hamilton set a new pole vault record in Temple with a vault of 14 feet-6 inches. Also in Temple, senior Richard Flores put the shot 54 feet-6 inches. ln Brownwood, Flores came in first in discus with a toss of 151 feet-7M inches. ln the high jump, junior David Russell and sopho- more loe Brown each cleared Sfeet-8 inches. Senior Buck Land turned in a 15.4 second high hurdle run, while sophomore Todd james was clocked at 17,4 seconds.The mile relay team turned in a spectacular 3:29.15 performance. Coach Lyndon Gathwright said that he was pleased with the team's showings, but that the ratings did not really show the team's true output. The invitational repre- sented merely a warm-up for district. Under Gathwright's supervision, the track team went through several types of workouts. Along with their strenuous off- season training, the team also had several hours of training duringthe season,including cross-country runs, endurance drills, weight training and calisthenics. 1 54-Sp orts ,s 9. f I "NIL " L A N """ H ,R 'T'-E34 gsm, , iff' X'-9 1 K- , L.. 4 -.Q,..di.aug..14"f 1 "'w3mUm. .39 V t..

Lyndon Gathright, in his second year as an Eagle coach, the 1979 men 's track team from AHS pushed through the 5-AAAA district meet, in Big Spring, to surface with an astonishing second place after everything was said and done. One week prior to the Big Spring meet, the Warbirds met in San Angelo in order to show their ever improving talents and skills. After much endeavor and sweat from the Eagles team, fifth place was awarded them by the judges in the Concho City. At the Viking relays in Bryan two weeks later, the Abilene High team members were humbled with an eleventh place finish. Only Monty Hamilton, an AHS senior and pole vaulter, set a meet record of 14 feet-9M inches. ln the nerve-tingling contest at Big Spring, he set the district record of 15 feet-4 inches. Later in April, the Abilene High team went to Regional competition in Lubbock where the Eagles place third all around. While the other teammates went through their various other events, Hamilton was working in the pole vaulting contest. His efforts proved worthy since he beat all of his opponents. This win gave him a chance to compete in State competition which was held in Austin, proving Abilene High a strong contender among 5-AAAA schools.

Men's Track-157 Track makes stars for upcoming years The rebuilding year of T978 began with grueling workouts, early curfews and strict training programs. This combined with pep- talks and prayers started the Eagle women on the road that all young teams take. Working almost three hours after school every day, the Eagle team worked out in the freezing drizzle which plagued most of their track meets. The team also gave up their Saturdays to prepare for the stiff competi- tion which faced them. Early curfews were assigned on Friday nights for the track team. These curfews were given to make sure the team had enough sleep to enable them to play well at the track meets the following day. Strict training programs were appointed to each member of the team. Some programs consisted of running, jumping hurdles and working with the shot-put each day. The efforts of the T978 team did not go unnoticed. The women placed fifth over all at district, giving them strong momentum for the years to come. if? 4 , 4-.4 J 2 it 1, 4, fvt . 5 , f- ' xiii f 'L .4229 , Egpsggaga, Ya pst., t f 1 ffid ' 'ti nm., Q ,W aff ix LQ: ff? mer-pg .ws c.ff?"+ ' 3 tacit' . we.

WOM EN 'S TRACK Spur 3rd Big Spring 4th Lubbock Sth .X-t. 8 Women's Track-159 Weightlifters' team whops it with weights Abilene High might not have had an Alexia to contribute his illustrious talent and prominent stomach, but they were not with- out their own strongmen, some of whom could lift almost half as much as Alexia could. The strongest man in the world might have been able to lift 600 lbs., but the Abilene High weight-lifting team could lift 18,800 lbs. They reached this astronomical figure while pounding it out with Cooper in the first ever weight-lifting competition between the two respective high schools. Abilene High won the competition by an unprece- dented 645 lb. margin surpassing Cooper which bogged down under the strain but made a decent showing with l8,l55 lbs. total. Loyal Eagles who had known all along where the brawn in Abilene really was, were not at all surprised at the outcome. They would not have achieved so much had they not put in several weeks ofhard work. Three weight categories were open for the thirty male AHS students to enter. Depending upon their physical disposition, they lifted in either the light, middle or heavy-weight categories. Three basic lifts were used in all three categories. They were the bench press, military press and the leg press. Abilene High did not fare too well in the lightweight category butwon the military press. They also won the middleweight cate- gory by winning the military and leg press in that area. They then went on to win all of the lifts in the heavyweight category. With the weight lifted in each category combined, Abilene High emerged as the overall winner of the competition with Cooper winning only one weight category. Coach Forkerway, instructor of the weight training class, said that the students had worked for two trimesters in prepara- tion forthe competition. Lifting three days a week, they began the year by building their endurance lifting light weights for about three wee ks. They soon progressed to heavier weights and began to add the pounds and inches to their bodies. 160-Sports L 2 W-if is SQA '24 A ,:.f -if ffg lri ' i ,y.?f3 3 55' 4 X .

Yet the basic function for AHS, as for any school, was to teach the knowledge neces- sary for students to take a responsible spot in society. The scope of knowledge increased as students and teachers worked together to grasp the basic skills needed for future careers. Yet, after the basic skills were recog- nized, accepted and attempted, course offerings expanded to include creative classes wherever scheduling permitted them. Elective classes broke the monotony of routine school, and gave students a chance to ponder the possibilities of life after high school or contemplate the lofty aspects of many elective courses. As students became more involved in life after high school, those that chose not to attend college were given the variety of vocational classes which were capable of providing insight or teaching skills necessary for desired professions. Even though the school routine was broken by various holidays, clubs, parties and friends, the year i979 was one in which students were urged back to the basics and into a circle of electives and vocational courses designed at helping students make decisions for the future. 1.

A sigh of relief could be heard from both English teachers and stu- dents with the news of retiring the ETB grammar packets for sophomores. The two year project with individualized grammar packets was packed away, hopefully to never emerge again. Another change in sophomore English came with the face lifting of the course ElO. E10 became a split course with six weeks devoted to composition and six weeks to reading laboratory. As usual, teachers tried to liven up class with special assignments or class projects. Guest speakers came even if it was from the counselor's office, and students had a chance to perform before their peers in dramas. Besides the E10 course compounding composition and reading for sophomores, juniors also were required to take a class in composition and research. The elective English courses were mainly for seniors since many had already completed their gradua- tion requirements in the English field. Their choices included "Honors British Literature," Ullesearch Methods," "Advanced Grammar and Composition" and several others. , '.,,, -- .W U t z ...W ' .

Almost every student had at one time or another heard his parents say "I don't under- stand all of that new math," or "They never taught that when l was in school." So students and parents labored through hours of confusion and frustration trying to comprehend the mysteries of new math. However, Nlr. james Lambdin, math teacher at Abilene High for T2 years, did not agree with the problems of "new math." According to him "The only thing new about math is that we teach why 2+224, not because your math teacher says it does." With this new insight into the world of numbers, students better understood the confusing world of math. Other new arrivals to the math depart- ment were computers for Mrs. Donna Harlow's F. O. Nl. classes. The computers were programmed by individual students for basic mathematical skills. lVlrs. Harlow felt that the computers gave students an oppor- tunity for more individualized attention and created new interests in math for F. O. Nl. students. Geometry students taught by lVlrs. Dorothy Presswood spent time outside of class working on projects. As time went on, the students artwork took shape. Soon, Mrs. Presswood's classroom was overrun with models, puzzles, games, paper folding projects, and string art, giving a new look to the math department. 5 166-Academics pw 2 - .4 Q is , 1. f cy 'iii ' K fs , W-1 b p.

E., health classes Bowling balls, skates, bikes, weights, basketballs, tennis balls and rackets,whistles, fishing poles, floor mats and badminton rackets. What did all of these have in common? They were all part of the physical education program offered for students during the i978-'79 school year at AHS. P. E. teachers and coaches tried to make P. E. and health more exciting for students who dreaded having to take those two required classes. For students who wanted to slim down, several options were offered. For girls, Bold Gold, figure control and gymnas- tics could be scheduled, Guys, with the exception of a few girls, were challenged by weight training. Another class designed to help win friends, impress them and improve social sports was the bowling and skating class. Although a small fee was charged, skills which were gained in this class were well worth the price. Viewed more as life long recreations, fishing, officiating and bad- minton concluded the list of "fun" P. E. classes. ln addition to the recreational classes, more exhilarating classes requiring skill and strength could be found. Drive, agility, strength and skill were needed in conquering courses such as tennis, bicycling, basketball and swimming. Finally, a class for students who liked variety was team sports. Team sports was a combination of all sports including basket- ball, football and baseball. The health classes at AHS did more than just work out of the textbook during the year. One project was writing reports about various health careers, and the use ofalcohol, drugs and tobacco. VD iVenereal Diseasei was also studied in health, along with rape prevention, ln addition, several speakers visited Mrs. Lucy Weaver's health class to discuss thc importance of taking precau- tionary steps to prevent rape. A large variety of P. E. courses was offered and many improved during the 1978-'79 year in an effort to interest the students and provide life long recreation and health training. 168AAcademics 1' 1911 :ki'fL'!,9"fL Q '5' W' 'U fripaia 1.

Courses ranged from geology and oceanography to the more tra- ditional classes of biology, chemistry and physical science. As in years gone by, biology classes centered their attention on genetics and the study of living organisms. Biology demon- strated the rationale method behind the organization of living systems. Science classes also had special activities during the year. Students participated in science fair projects and research studies. Some classes even studied cardiopulmonary resuscitation in which Abilene jaycees volunteered to help students learn to save a person's life. Chemistry was a laboratory of natural chemicals. These classes experimented with different types of chemicals and analyzed them in the laboratory. The science department provided the basics so science would not be overwhelming or perplexing in times to come. lb, Qin. 170-Academics 7,'5EiLfiff,i.l. 'ik "-ffffzi 5 94:81 Yi 4 . l 7 1.

After that nobody knows." Students at AHS may have not been aware that history was being made every day of the year, but for five days out of the week they were faced with the product of yesterdayf history. Social studies department offered thirty- one different courses. Students were required to complete three units of history or geog- raphy, three units of American history and two units of government for graduation. Sophomores were offered nine different courses in world history and three courses in world geography. juniors chose between ten different courses in American history, and seniors struggled to schedule four different kinds of government. Including American history and world history, humanities for junior students became a popular elective. Taught jointly by Mrs. Nelda Macon and Mr. Wes Odell, the course combined American history and English as a two hour class. The students studied a variety of subjects spanning such topics as the labor problems of the immi- grants and the Industrial Revolution. Class- room instruction was often supplemented by class trips such as a trip to Gooch 's Package Company. Other social studies classes presented a study of the institutions and processes used in the legislative, executive and judicial functions in American government. In these classes, students were encouraged to partici- pate in a democratic society by helping candidates in elections. The social studies department showed the students something of their heritage and attempted to prepare students for active participation in the future as citizens of the community, state and nation. 172-Academics AkEAfjaN'ifwowto wwe fi tw we -, Wi W 5 4 . w lf if-.LW kA.4',x Mfr. 1.1-il N"'i .Ka '!

Abilene High offered all of these courses during the l978-'79 school year. Students taking psychology classes were required to start with an introduction to psychology class. After completing the intro- ductory course, students were offered a second course in abnormal psychology taught by Mr. Steve Perkins. Students learned about personality, intelligence, mental illness, history of psychology and theorists such as Sigmond Freud. Sociology classes, taught by Mrs. Rhonda Hunter, discovered the influences of peer pressure, family problems, religions, and several other subjects. "The main pur- pose of the class is to realize how and why we act the way we do in groups," said Mrs. Hunter. "We talk candidly about the stu- dents' social problems." As inflation grew during the school year, so did the cost of living. Students in Miss lozell Brister's economics classes usually enrolled in order to function better in the changing economy of the nation. Eco- nomics students spent time trying to solve problems in market and scarce resources. Psychology, sociology and economics classes were each very beneficial in helping students to better solve the problems that they presently had and the ones which they would surely face after high school. Psychology-175 Traditional domestic arts capture novel appearance at AHS Although occasionally a ripping seam could be heard or a pan boiling over could be seen, generally the homemaking classes were rewarding experiences. Learning the basics of an independent life which included cooking, sewing and decorating a home was the backbone of these courses. Various courses were offered to students such as consumer education which presented the many phases of ban king, insur- ance, budgeting and credit. A study of interior decorating under the title of l'Home Furnishings" taught skills such as painting, drapery making, uphol- stering and furniture refinishing. Under this course, each student was required to draw a floor plan and decorate a dream house. Beginning with the study of dating, 'AHome and Family Living" went through the steps of establishing a home. The class carried through engagement, weddings, house hunting, communications, the family life cycle stages and ended with aging and death. A mock wedding was performed, complete with reception to create the atmos- phere of an actual wedding. These courses gave students the oppor- tunity to taste the life of an adult and the freedom and responsibilities of .indepen- dence. 176-Homemaking X Elective Courses 4 1.

This and more was easily discovered in the one trimester child development course offered by the homemaking department. Three levels of child care were taught from the view ofthe babysitter. The course material started with conception and con- tinued with the birth process and on through the different stages of development. Police- men visited the class and discussed the effects and causes of child abuse. The classes even took field trips on occasions to observe children in various day-care centers and to price baby supplies available at Westgate lVlall.Theyalsovisited thehospital,attcmpted to get into the maternity ward and also visited the pediatrics center. They also studied handicapped children and the causes and solutions of how to deal with them. This course was especially helpful for those planning on working with small children in their profession and for those planning parenthood in the future. Q ec- 6 4.

An obvious addition came when new office desks and chairs replaced the old school desks. Chairman of the business department, Mrs. Kay Taylor stated that the new office desks would give the students more of a sense of working in a real office. In addition to the new equipment, the business department began offering two new courses. Business management and office business careers were designed to supple- ment the more standard courses of typing, shorthand, office procedures, accounting, business math and business management. Business teachers worked with students to help them acquire basic knowledge of office procedures. After completing the more advanced courses in typing, and shorthand, some students hoped to compete at Big Spring in district 5-AAAA competition. The business department received many calls from prospective employers asking for office help. Often emphasized was the ability to type, a skill necessary for almost every business related job. Most Abilene High students felt that they were prepared in this area as in many others by their years of study in the business department. 3 180-Business 'UI , ' 'CZHSF' fx., AB, . if i f, f f ' 1 ' ' fs' gf 7 1.

The methods of photography were offered at AHS in either a one trimester or full year course which provided students with knowledge of film and camera techniques. During the first trimester, neophyte photographer were taught basic procedures, such as developing negatives, operating a camera, printing pictures and enlarging images. More advanced students focused on purifying these skills and developing special effect techniques. As the students tamed the relationship of light and shutter speed, they soon learned difficult procedures needed in arranging these elements to provide the desired theme. Most students were satisfied in learning skills that would last throughout their lives even though they were not planning on becoming professionals. During the year, photography classes were challenged by several projects. At Christmas, students raised money by inviting the study body, faculty and visitors from the community to have their pictures taken with photographers posing as Santa and Mrs. Claus. Several students looked forward to the incorporation of a second year course for the coming school year. These students hoped to perfect their techniques to enter photo contests and eventually pursue photography as a career. XAXXEJ' 6 8 Photography-183 ' ,xg ,"K'fa. .-Q, 1.

Among the art courses offered were tex- tiles, weaving, stitchery, macrame and ceramics, sculpture and a study of clay and glazes. Skills such as designing and drawing and painting were also learned. Many hours of practice and concentra- tion were needed to learn the basics and methods of art. After sitting in class for hours expressing their creative talents, the students were given a chance to show off their works of art. On April 3, 1979, the annual public school art exhibit was held at the Abilene Civic Center. Exhibition of their works gave the stu- dents and art teachers, Mrs. Nancy Noll and Nlrs. Carolyn Presswood, a sense of pride to see different sculptures, drawings and canvases displayed for everyone to see and enjoy. 2 it it 'vii Art-185 Speakers, actors bewitched by district "Finding yourself!" "What's the meaning of life?" These could be found in a psychology class, but instead they were the theme of the UIL one act play, Denny and the Witches. The play was produced by an all-star cast with the lead roles going to David Smith and Terrie Hawkins. The cast presented the play for the student body in March and then participated in district competition held in Big Spring to win fourth place honors. lVlr. Hal Nliller, drama teacher at AHS held three drama classes Drama l, ll, lll. He also taught stagecraft, a class where students learned to set a stage, use lights and props, and master the basic technical functions of a play. Skills and techniques acquired in drama naturally spilled over into speech. Ms. Fran King, speech teacher, stated that many ' 4 'fm' - ii :ii 51: 186-Academics students who came into her speech class were originally drama students. Speech I and ll were offered for beginners, while the more determined students advanced to debate classes and tournament speech. The 1979 speech team did very well, competing in the four major areas of poetry reading, prose reading, extemporaneous speaking, and debate. The team traveled to six different tournaments. Outstanding speakers at UIL were Terrie Hawkins in poetry reading, Carrie Blondeau and David Smith in prose reading, and Matt Craig, Phil Boone and Richard Giesey in extempor- aneous speaking. Both speech and drama closely inter- acted with each, helping the other. Both departments had a banquet at the end of the year where outstanding awards were given. nw f ' ' Mx X, si O 67" jx? .. ,. wr , .,..N f QQ Jn Q3 kg Sweet-tarts enhance daily life of staffers "Gary, where are the Sweet-tarts?l" somebody hollered in seventh period Flash- light just as Lochy Larson came dancing in the room to the self-sung tune of "I go to Rio" fnormally a hit by Pablo Cruisel. As usual, the room was in its chaotic state, as were the students . . .with reason. After all, it was the last class of the day and being such an abnormal one, it truly affected the gullible students who unknowingly got themselves into the mess. Ah, but life in the Flashlight Office wasn 't just Sweet-tarts and music and all the other chaotic occurrences, it was also good- bye Saturday and after-school free time before deadlines. The tensions were high with Sweet-tarts being replaced with Cokes from the workroom and music enhanced with heavy sighs and dreaded reminders from the sponsor, Mrs. Vickie Weir. The small chalkboard held important notes like "I need pic's," Ulate copy . . ." and "Hello!" often the only tie ofcommunication between Flashlight classes. The room was at its peak as far as messes go, and would more than likely stay in that state until the final dead- line was met. ln the darkroom the photographers either sat alone printing pictures and devel- oping negatives or sat talking with someone who was bored in the FO and came for refuge. Spaced sparingly along the way were the out-of-town seminars in Denton and Austin where staffers also discovered how well they had competed in various critiqued events. Matt Robinson and Key Gee discovered in Denton they both won first place in state with photographs from the i978 annual. Matt was awarded in the color-feature photo division, and Key won the feature photo division. The book itself placed third in state in its division. The Austin trip was even more exciting than the trip to Denton. The participants dined at the Magic Time Machine one night and during the day went to seminars held at the University of Texas to hopefully pick up some yearbook pointers in improving their book. But still hovering over their heads was the fact their book was still not completed, and another deadline was drawing closer. lt took a lot of work to tell the story of the life at AHS during the 1978-'79 school year and of world and city-wide events as they touched the lives of the Abilene High students. However, the challenge was boldly faced with specific goals in mind to be met by the Flashlight staff. 188-Academics sd v O W F as pei!! .,-qq, Ago' 'Tk ,km"k'wv:f.s.i , . -' , , ei 4 V Mt,-., " ,ts ng i 1.

School events were always kept up to date in the Battery which was used as a major source of information on school happenings. The Battery was always in demand by the students at AHS. Abilene High students received the Battery bi-weekly, and special editions were printed for holidays and special events. The special editions usually ran eight pages, whereas the regular edition ran four. Battery staffers worked extra hard to get valuable information to the students. Sometimes staffers spent extra hours getting and reporting the news. Production of the Battery took every minute of a staffer's time. As soon as the production of one issue was finished,anothcr was immediately started. Selling of ads to businesses was the Batterys main source of income. Except for a helpful boost from the school administra- tion, the financing of the Battery depended on the advertising bought by different businesses. As editor of the Battery, Chuck Mitchell did an excellent job. ln a contest held before UIL, Chuck placed first in editorial writing and fourth in news writing.

Yet for students in the Abilene High Exchange Club, these words were an attempt to express the whole aspect behind the club. While the most apparent purpose of the Exchange Club was to exchange places with another club during the year, the club offered numerous fund raising to keep members busy and anxious for their exchange trip. just joining the club did not automat- ically include a student on the big exchange. After participants Hlled out applications, they went through a rigorous battery of recommendation and scholastic averaging before the final yea or nay. All the sweat and bother was finally made up by the two big functions. During Homecoming week, the club received agroup of students from Monterrey, Mexico. Forthe week, exchange students opened their homes to the foreign visitors, giving them a taste of life in the USA. Although many of the foreign students spoke little English, they soon found their places, especially after becoming honorary citizens of Abilene. As the year advanced, Exchange Club members sold programs at the basketball games to fund the upcoming trip to Mexico. Finally the day arrived. Early in the morning the travelers boarded the vans which took them to the DIFW airport where they embarked on a week of cultural exper- ience in Mexico. While there, they found a new world of aromas, feelings, tastes and sights. In spite of the language barrier, they were indoc- trinated into the world of Mexico. There they found life was run by a new set of rules and standards. Although the language and customs were different, the Abilene students found that the Mexicans were people with much the same wants and needs as they had. With much work and many problems overcome, the rewards and memories ac- quired were those that would last a lifetime. Exchange Club-193 """T"l Highly educated gain added fun, enjoyment Was academic life always boring? For some students, maybe it was, but for one group of students life was exceptional academically as well as socially. The 86 members of National Honor Society stayed extremely busy maintaining high scholastic grades and improving school social life. For example during Homecoming, the NHS held a reception in the cafeteria for Abilene High ex's. To continue with the Homecoming festivities, honor students sold balloons all day Friday.These balloons were released later that night at the Homecoming game. During that week at Sing-Song, NHS received second place for costumes and first place with vocal singing. Other social events that were held during the year included a retreat to Buffalo Gap and a picnic held on May 3 where new officers were announced, and new members were inducted for the coming year. Highlighting social activities for the year, the Valentine Post Office served stu- dents with the theme "Valentine Galacticaf' "Foreign creatures" delivered flowers, candy and valentines to students at AHS to immor- talize the special day. In addition to these activities, hayrides, parties and meetings took up much of the members' time. Even as active as NHS was, students still had to maintain a 3.8 average and a constant "A" in citizenship grades. Naturally every NHS member felt strenuous work was worth it since the National Honor Society had a highly successful year. 194-Academies fyteljje fi Ai wma 2 1.

' X hi 1 6 Honor Society-1 95 French, Latin students gain college prep Although the average student did not know the connection between English, French and Latin, one definitely existed. French and English both had a common origin-Latin. Therefore, speaking French may have sounded hard, but Miss Sherri Hansen, French teacher at AHS, said that it was not, since many of the words were similar to English. Along with learningthe French language, the French culture was studied as well. After being totally enhanced by the French life- style, many French students longed for first- hand experience in the culture. With the guidance of their sponsor, Miss Hansen, the French Club went to Quebec, Canada on March 16. They stayed at the Chateau Frontenac and ate at many of the finer French restaurants. They also had a chance to try out some of the French they had learned. To continue learning about the lan- guage and the culture, they also attended a French symposium held in San Antonio where knowledge of the French culture and language was tested against that from other schools. But French was not the only language related to English, Latin, one of the oldest languages was used as a basis for many other languages including French, English and Spanish. Even though Latin had been consid- ered a dead language, many students who planned on becoming doctors or going into medical careers, took the classes because Latin was the written language used in the medical world. In spite of the reasons for taking a foreign language, either for fun or to get an edge over other college-bound students, the challenge of a second language was met with the choices often being French and Latin. ...wnfg 196-Academics 'BHP' 1.

Common expressions heard when visiting Mexico or Germany were encoun- tered at Abilene High in Spanish and Ger- man classes l, ll and III taught by Mrs. Linda Collins and Mrs. Maria Griffith, respectively. Both classes were aimed towards college prep but undertaken by both college bound students and others. "Most students use Spanish as a college prep course, but they can use it in every day communication with citizens that do not speak English well, especially in a work situation," as expressed by Ms. Linda Collins as one of the purposes of enrollment in Spanish. The same applied to classes in German. The aspects studied in classes included the cultures, folklore, customs and history of the respective countries. Participation excelled in both the Ger- man and Spanish clubs as students contri- buted time into the making ofa successful year. The highlighted event in which the Ger- man Club participated in was the annual Octoberfest in which students presented a German meal and competed in the areas of desserts, poetry reading, singing, skits, projects and costumes. ln essence, the same type of program was conducted by the Spanish Club. The annual Christmas Party held by the Spanish Club gave students a sample of Mexican cultures and food. As students attempted to understand cultures faced every day, it was agreed that the study of foreign cultures helped minimize the vastness of barriers. Spanish, German-1 99 Harmonizing key factor in students' lives Webster defined singing as "the uttering of sounds with melodious modulations of the voice." The Abilene High School Choral department did just that. Students partici- pated in Concert Choir, Harmony, and a new addition to the department, the Barbershop lVlen's Chorus. The forty-six members of the Concert Choir were chosen all by audition and by teacher selection. Choir director, Mr. Danny Hood, stressed the importance of developing the students' musical ability and also developing their art of listening. Concert choir members sang music that reached a higher degree of difficulty. ln addition to singing for numerous civic organizations, the Concert Choir per- formed a Christmas concert at Citizens National Bank which was broadcasted over all local radio stations, and a joint concert with the Mclvlurry Chanters and the Cooper Choir on April 26. As a reward for all of their efforts, the AHS Concert Choir received a number one at the Six Flags Festival and the Sweepstakes prize at UIL competition. gi ,lb i.

There were nine members in the i978-'79 group with all of the vocalists meeting the requirement of being a senior. These students studied the entertainment aspect of music as opposed to the aesthetic aspect. After practicing for several weeks during seventh period, the group performed for several service organiza- tions, junior highs, banquets, and area high schools. All told the popular group held over thirty performances. A new addition to the Choral Depart- ment was the Barbershop Mens' Chorus. With only seventeen members, the chorus received a two in UIL competition in concert and sight reading. The Barbera shoppers harmonized at the annual Barber- shop show at the Civic Center, at the San Angelo pep rally, and at the Christmas and Spring concerts. Webster was right. When it came to uttering melodious modulations of the voice, the Abilene High Choral Department had the do, re, mi's down pat. ?

After performing concert music and sight reading material, the choir came out on top with a sweepstakes trophy. The choir members found out that hard work and a lot of instruction could pay off. Earlier in the year, concert choir and sophomore select had the opportunity to try out for All State Choir consisting ofthe top vocalists from all over the state. First, vocalists went to district competition, and 3l members scored well. They then moved on to regional and the area competitions. If a musician advanced that far, he then com- peted in state competition for the top three positions in All State Choir. Both choirs together had 20 musicians go to regional competition and then five students make it to area choir. Clay Hale was the only vocalist to make All State Choir and represented Abilene High well. lVlr. Danny Hood, choral director, worked hard to stress that vocal technique and deep breathing from the diaphragm was the key to a successful choir. He displayed this whenever the choir performed their dynamic skills, The choir performed a Christmas concert. Turning from a somber note set by the Christmas concert, the sophomore select choir performed a melody of popular pop music for the spring concert. All three of the Abilene High choirs worked hard and put forth their greatest efforts. The choirs also found that patience and working together was the key to a successful choir. Choir-203 1.

The tired, sweaty football players logged up the ramp toward the locker room as band members were lining up along the sidelines. Drummers and twirlers took their places on one side while the rest of the band stood ready across the field. A shrill signal was given by the drum majors and Shotwell Stadium echoed with the slow, steady beat of the drum cadence. As the tempo increased, the AHS Eagle Band descended upon the field filling the stadium with music. This typical halftime show took days of hard work to prepare. Band members spent up to five weeks of their summer working together under the direction of lVlr. Bill Spencer. For two weeks beginning in june, sophomores attended summer band. Three weeks before school started in September, all band members practiced two to three hours daily, preparing for the first halftime show of the 1978-'79 school year. After school started, the band began marching practice every morning at 7:30 a. m. Even when temperatures ranged from 20 degrees F to lO6 degrees F, the band could be found out on the drill field. The band's activities were not limited to halftime shows. They performed at the UIL marching contest where they earned a first division rating. And of course, what would a pep rally be without the band? Each pep rally began with the band marching into the Eagle Gym as the cheerleaders led yells. Sitting at the end of the gym, the band played exciting music, helping cheerleaders and Eagle Squad to promote spirit among Abilene High students. 7 Band-2 O5 Band makes waves What was the Hrst thing that came to mind with the mention of the word "band"? Marching? Halftime shows? Pep rallies? Even though these things were common to most bands, the i978-'79 Abilene High band did not limit its activities to football season. A Christmas concert, UIL contest, concerts for parents, and a trip to Phoenix were among the activities planned not only for the symphonic band, but for the concert and stage bands as well. As the weather grew colder and the new year drew nearer, plans for the annual Christmas concert were being made. While many teenagers busied themselves with Christmas shopping, band students spent time rehearsing music and decorating the stage forthe concert. The day of the concert came and so did Santa Claus, alias lVlr. Lee Abernathy. Younger brothers and sisters of band students, along with children of some AHS teachers were on hand to tell Old St. 206-Academies at Arizona's Big Surf Nick their Christmas wishes in exchange for a candy cane. When the icy holiday season was over and school was back in session, it was time to prepare for UIL competition. The stage band made first division ratings in concert and sight reading as did the symphonic band, which won a trophy for having superior ratings in the UIL marching contest earlier in the year. For the symphonic band, which con- sisted mostly ofjuniors and sophomores, the highlight of the 1978-'79 school year was a trip to a music festival in Phoenix, Arizona. The band stayed in Phoenix, while the actual contest was at Mid-Western University in Tempe, a short distance away. During their stay in Phoenix, band members had shopped, swum, played a concert and gone swimming at Big Surf. The students returned to Abilene exhausted and sunburned, but happy. Wiener o U 1' 1.

Some students were involved in extra activities which they sought out on their own such as the Philharmonic Orchestra, Hardin- Simmons Orchestra, civic choral choirs and some even helped make radio and TV com- mercials. The ambition in these students also stretched to the performances of the orches- tra at school. Several students qualified in Region Orchestra. The section leaders were Linda White, Beverly Edwards and Carrie Blondeau. As a unit, the orchestra made Sweepstakes in UIL contest. Maggie Howell, Beverly Edwards, Susan Boyd and Carrie Blondeau advanced to the state solo and ensemble contest in Austin in june. Mem- bers of the orchestra also performed for senior citizens and with the Cooper Orchestra for a clinic concert in April. Perhaps the highlight for many involved students was the trip to Corpus Christi from April 26-28 for competition in the Buccaneer Festival. "lt was very tough competition!" according to Beverly Edwards who attended. Only those who made Sweepstakes in UIL could compete. The Abilene High Orchestra came home with a two rating. The group spent the rest of Thursday and all day Friday on the beach. Throughout the year, orchestra mem- bers shared their talents with eager listeners and fellow players for self-gratification and sought out the same satisfying rewards with their involvement in activities not related to school.

Eleven of these went to Houston from March 29-31 for contest. But with the computers sitting there and programming sheets lying around, any- one could tell that this casual atmosphere was just an added pleasure and that work was done in this class as well. Still, the assumption remained that even when working, the casual atmosphere existed to save everyone's sanity-except for Mr. Stir- man's, of course! 212-Drafting 1.

These basics included lettering,sketching and experiencing what was offered in tech- nical drafting and architectural drafting such as single and multiview drafting. The class covered little of everything to help the student decide what step to take next. Those who headed for technical drafting did more extensive work in the various fields that prepared them for an engineering field in the future. Architectural drafting handled strictly phases of designing and covered areas such as drawing floor plans, foundations, construction plans, elevation plans and many other aspects of drawing. These students would be knowledgeable enough, after com- pleting the course to be draftsmen for pro- fessional architects and be ahead of college students who had never had any training in high school, All students in these classes were eligible to be members in the Industrial Arts Club. These members went to regionals in April where, if qualified, they would later go on to the state meet held in Waco in lVlay.

Determination - a key for basic machining With knowledge gained through actual experience, the 25 students enrolled in machine shop endowed basic skills toward the metallic profession. The course consisted of the four major categories of machine work, bench work, welding and theory with several related subjects. The metal trades course offered a promising career for the individual who had an interest and attitude for working with hand tools. With a variety of hand tools, such as pliers and chisels, the students learned the names, use and care for hand tools. Students also used the hand tools in bench work to make a special project which incorporated fundamental metal working processes such as welding and grinding. ln addition, students learned the basic steps of welding and different types of welds. Finally, in theory and related sub- jects, students learned technical information such as hardness of metal, Stressing the use of hand tools, and power machines, Nlr. George Credicott taught students to operate machines, to make projects and to develop the close tolerance needed for machining metals. With several entries in VICA compe- tition, the AHS machine shop classes showed their skills which were achieved during the i978-'79 school year. 7 5.

In the world of rising inflation, a skill that allowed stu- dents to cut costs was worth the money invested. Feeling that it was worth their time and money, students financed all their projects. They also cut all the wood for the class. General woodworking which consisted of juniors and seniors had two required projects for the i978-'79 school year. Their instruce tor, Mr. Ned Follis, required that they make a tape rack and also a T-base table. After completing these projects, they moved on to bigger and better things such as a china hutch and a wardrobe cabinet, The students also made other objects such as a checkerboard or a stereo cabinet. If a student chose leathercrafts, he also had a lot of exciting things to make. Bill' folds, keycases, mini-purses and comb cases were just a few of the crafts that interested students. After completing their projects, stu' dents took them to regional and state competition to compete with other students. Regional competition took place at Abilene Christian University, then they traveled to Waco for state competition. When the year was over and all projects completed, the students found that all their hard work and effort was worth the trouble since they had learned skills which would benefit them the rest of their lives. 8 Woodworking!219 Career seekers find glimmer in electricity Consisting of basic electrifying tech- niques, the radio-tv classes under the instruc- tion of lVlr. lim Simpson revealed indis- pensable projects. With a combination of classroom and labwork, the 22 students who enlisted in the program learned to repair and adjust electronic equipment such as radios and televisions. As a special project, students were assigned to build an AC-DC radio which consisted of aligning and trouble shooting the unit. With this project and other repairs of various electronic units, the radio-tv workshop was busily bubbling with students diagnosing and correcting problems. Entering contests in district and state divisions, students enrolled in the course gained critical experience in VICA compe- tition. This experience was aimed at helping them in the future when they would repair various electric home appliances in newly found jobs after graduation. 4 3 220-Radio-TV ,.L.1' 2 6 1.

Expressing themselves through their work, the students gained knowledge from wiring the KAHS radio speakers located in the ceiling of the cafeteria to wiring houses built by AHS and CHS building trades classes. During the l978-'79 school year, elec- trical trades stressed basic electricity, residential, commercial and industrial wiring. Students in electrical trades learned facts about basic electrical power which consisted of electric motor controls and distribution of electric power. Learning the steps of wiring and types of wires, the students also experienced wiring residential dwellings and commercial agencies. With VICA competition in district and state divisions, students learned the value of a skillful electrician by employing skills already gained in class. .-.-Q. REQ!! 7 niques. 5.

How about hour after hour of practicing, sore muscles and financial sup- port for equipment? No one else at AHS except the rodeo club knew the slang and pains of rodeoing. Rodeos set their claws deep in the AHS Eagles. Day after day of repetition showed as a faint glow when the club members gave up dates and after school free time to show their enthusiasm. Tracing their heritage back to the beginning of the Old West, rodeo clubbers carried on the tradition of the almost for- gotten cowpoke. With after school jobs and financial help from parents, clubbers rode in individual events around the Big Country as well as statewide. Some cowboys and cowgirls such as sophomore Fred Hernandez, competed not only in Texas but also in other states. With a gross income of approxi- mately S6,000 during the i978 season, Fred planned for another successful summer in l979. The 1978-'79 season brought goals closer to being reached as rodeo club mem- bers rode to achieve higher ratings. ss., X 222-Rodeo Club 5, .- ,. L N., Agriculture classes irrigate agri - business Confirming leadership and establishment in farming and ranching, the FFA grew under the instruction of Mr. Bill Scott and Mr, jackie Richards. Offered as a sequel course, agriculture classes provided students with comprehension of an agri-business vocation, Stressing the important role of farmers, the ll4 students enrolled in FFA entered con- tests in different fields and met frequently for extra curriculum activities as well as classroom work. Vocational agriculture classes were classified into VA l, VA ll, VA Ill and Co-op Agriculture providing the student with conception in training of agriculture. The first year in agriculture, known as VA l, presented students with the basic classifica- tion of domestic ranch animals such as hogs, poultry and cattle. VA ll, the second sequel, taught students ranch management and identification of diseases which consisted from feed rations to blackleg. VA lll intro 4 xx V . 6 duced students to self assurance in farming and ranching. Students learned range and farm conditions from Maine to California with emphasis on the Big Country. Co-op Agriculture, a course where students worked half a day, taught students agri-business with on the job training. In these classes, students were taught patience in agriculture and gained experience through required projects which were supervised under Mr. Scott and Mr. Richards. Entering contests in meats, livestock, poultry, dairy cattle, dairy products and land judging, students were given additional training in a field of interest. These judging teams competed in district, regional, and state levels and also went to several meets in Fort Worth, Stephenville, Lubbock, Abilene, San Angelo, College Station and Sweetwater. On the average, AHS judging teams and con- testants were highly successful. 5 1. In their dreams, cowboys sometimes visualize themselves as the world ehampion's brone rider. 2.

During this two-year course which students could begin their junior year, students were challenged by the necessary knowledge needed to succeed in hair fashions. The classes which were separated into three hours a day for each student, gave them the actual exper- ience and practice useful in their area. Throughout the two years, students prepared for the state board licensing by completing lab work. Working on wigs took much concentration as did their final step of perfecting their designs on customers. The state board exam, the highlight of the year, was taken by qualifying seniors on the first or second week during May in Austin. Students also participated in different contests at the district and state leyels. Officers of the club competed in areas of leadership and speech. Girls often joined the VICA Wocational Industrial Clubs of Americaj in order to compete in these areas of cosmetology. Cosmetology classes were capable of doing almost any kind of hairstyle just as a beauty shop could. In fact, after passing the state board exam, the seniors were able to work in a beauty shop knowing that their abilities were among the best. f"""ls 7 Cosmetology-225 1 4 Three R's replaced by course curriculum Who said that school was just reading, writing, and 'rithmetic? Not true! Students at Abilene High could leave the traditional classes and enroll in classes that would help them enter the working world. ICT ilndus- trial Cooperative Trainingl and DE fDistri- butive Educationl classes at AHS offered to students the basics of industrial type jobs and retail sales. Mr. Bill Decker, ICT instructor, said that the classroom sessions were for students to study areas that would help them in becoming successful in the world of work. Also the students researched the theories and technical aspects of their particular occupation. The students participated in welding, air conditioning, refrigeration, elec- 226-DEJICT trical trades, printing, construction, machine shop and auto mechanics. Mr. Cecil Couch, Distributive Education teacher, revealed many valuable aspects to the class. Students received retail training in high school which helped them later in life. They also acquired a confidence and under- standing of the business world that they normally would not have gained without the help of the class. A few of the areas were general merchandizing, marketing and adver- tising. Learning was no longer the three R's. The ICT and Distributive Education changed that theory, and in the meantime, made the working world fun. af will 1.

This familiar question to many fatherscame when their children had received their driver's license with the aid of driver educa- tion classes offered at Abilene High.Although the classes were held during zero period at 7:30 a. m., so many students were enrolled that often students were turned away. Before the actual driving began, the students had the privilege of taking their written exam at school. Department of Public Safety officers brought the written tests to the classrooms. The test, which consisted of two parts, rules and signs, had to be passed with a minimum of seventy points. The prize was, of course, the much awaited beginner's permit. The beginner's permit allowed the stu- dents to do their student driving. For twelve, nerve-wracking days, the driver's education was driving education. Students perfected their parallel parking and learned to manip- ulate the automobiles with skill and grace. Finally the big day arrived. After six toilsome weeks of study and two grueling weeks of driving, the students were eligible for his or her provisional license. The ulti- mate test was driving at the Department of Public Safety. After passing the test, the student said goodbye to the days of driving with Mom, Dad or anyone else over the age of eighteen, Another licensed driver had been created through the help of the AHS driver educa- tion class.

HOE, HECE offer alternative careers Expectant graduates at AHS were con- tinaually asking the question, "What am l going to do after high school?'l For many, college was not the only answer. Health Occupations Education CHOEl and Home Economics Cooperative Education QHECEJ two of the many alternatives available to career oriented students. HOE, taught by Mrs. Avis Waldrop,was a full year vocational course available to juniors or seniors. HOE introduced students to health careers through classroom and work situations. "The students feel they are interested in some kind of career in health, and this is a good way to learn a little more about it, plus earning some money while doing it before entering college," said Mrs. Waldrop. HECE, like HOE, was a full year voca- tional course available to juniors for either one or two years and to seniors for one year. Mrs. Sue Day, HECE instructor, stated, "HECE gives students an opportunity to grow in independence and take on more responsibility." Working in day care centers and other home economics related occupa- tions, students prepared for life after high school. Since both HOE and HECE were half day courses, students attended school half of the day to obtain credits that might be needed if they chose to enter college. This arrangement enabled students to work during the rest ofthe day, opening the door for a career which did not require a college education. HOE, HECE-229 Students apply skills Fantastic opportunities faced students studying in Vocational Office Education as they planned for a future career by devel- oping office skills. Any student planning a future as a secretary or an office worker could be guaranteed a job in an office after the VOE training program. Students were required to enter Pre- VOE their junior year. Pre-VOE was a two- period class that could have been taken either third and fourth periods or sixth and seventh periods. Later as a senior, they were required to only take a one-hour course to complete their training. jobs were found for those who were to be in VOE by the VOE teachers. The seniors worked half of their school day at this new found job. Some students even kept this job after their graduation. Seniors, as well as juniors, attended the regional contest in Big Spring, Texas, February 22-24. Four juniors placed first in their own categories. Karen Burton placed first in Information Communications Level lg Regina Cooley placed first in Prepared Verbal Communications Level lg Pam Cope- land placed first in Extemporaneous Speech Level l, and Kelly jennings placed first in Typing Level l. These four juniors went to state competition in Houston, March 29, 30, 31. Any first or second place winners from state were to attend national competition in Cincinnati, Ohio, April ll-l4.

For others, the real world was present with the mark ups, the clearance sales, the close out sales, the shopping centers, super- markets, gasoline hikes, phone bills, washing and drying, cleaning and cooking. Yet- to answer the call of help, the ever constant hint of survival remained-the part-time job. As prices rose quickly, the minimum wage slowly increased to compensate. Yet, many fell under the curse of too many bills and not enough money. So, all in all, once again the circle of life played its game. As money was made it was spent, all a part of the real world. 1.

Seventh 692-2857 254-Ads Back to the basics Certain attributes and qualities are basic to life itself. Among these are happiness, sense of accomplishment, personal value, appreciation of fellow man, kindness, patience, temperance, conscientiousness, and faithfulness. This is by no means a complete list, but these are examples of the "basic" qualities of life. These "basics" are not taught from a text book - for, indeed, they cannot be lectured into existence. Rather, they are slowly learned and incorporated by following the examples of others. The teachers and staff at Abilene Christian University try to live their lives by these basic standards. Join us in a return to the basics. Abilene Christian University Ads-255 McMurry ls For Students! C tloflqi I l M kllcghan :tonga 5 i l i s Tl g E ball room i E z 3 E l moo'-ls' R .

WE K , V. x ,A Rf X5 Students persist in imperfect adult world Taking on new formats as individuals, students saw the pieces of the puzzle fall slowly and meticulously into place. Experi- mentations offered to the new found individual the accessibility to drugs, alcohol, religion, discotheques, colleges, universities and other fixations of a constant, yet changing destiny. The opportunities discov- ered through experiments offered unbiased and factual information from which opinions stemmed and generations formed. ln the accepted rituals of previous generations, the population of Abilene High excelled in academic and extra-curricular activities. lnstigation of thc infamous senior prom along with challenges of the classes and academic lettering became reality as students banded together to appeal to the young administration. As changes to the structure of Abilene High became increas- ingly evident, the once inferior youth began the next circle-the ending circle of adult- hood.
