INDEX CLOSING Editor's Note 2 Opening What is ELSIK Without Us? The student body is Elsik. Whether representing or participating in, we are the true school. That's why this yearbook is not centered around the school but the students and the active life we lead. by: Brena Baumann "Who's he?" asked the basketball fans at the Spring Woods game C Duplam photo What Is ELSIK Without Us? Two goals are reflected in our theme MOVING PICTURES. One is to catch the student body in action. As you run between and North and South House or stay till 5 p.m. practicing, you are participating in school. Spending the day at Surf Side or Sharpstown Mall you are representing the school. The student body is Elsik. That's why this yearbook is not centered around the school but the students and the active life We lead. Year after year, paragraphs are written about the memories that will suddenly become significant in ten years. Well this may seem trite, but its true that your yearbook serves a meaningful purpose in the future. Many people will cherish their's by the first class reunion. Life in high school is like nothing else. You can remember the experiences, but never relive them. Someday you will wonder Why Ms. Pac Man gobbled your quarters, what was so great about E.T., who was Tom Selleck Calias Magnum P.I.J, and what attraction did McDonalds have that brought students there any time or day of the week. Elsik is an ever changing environment of learning. Not just of Shakespeare and binomials, but of life in general. The student body is so diversified that a wide variety of life styles can be seen just by walking down the hall. Itis a difficult task to include everybody and their interests in one book. Nevertheless, we did try such a thing in Ramblings '83. In doing so, we found the only thing we all had in common was that we attended Alief Elsik High School during the 1982-1983 year. by: Brena Baumann 'E-Q '4 gzaifml- ,S 555.53 , " Ak 111, g .six in- . 1, ,f -KA QE" U V' " 1:11 Q.-,,- X- Xfsff Y 'J 'xiifi 2 -'-.- f Y J 5 P 1 .

Not different as in odd, but as in unique. Lets face it, after four years of high school, you're bound to have those distinct characteristics of dreaded Senioritis. No matter how hard you try to avoid it or how far you run away, itfs bound to catch up to you sooner or ater. To be a Senior, one must have certain possessions and qualities. For example, your bookshelves may look more like a Hastings fanis because theyire done in black and gold. This of course is the complete library of Cliff Notes courtesy of any book store and a good part of your lunch money. It must be an unofficial rule of AISD Transportation because you,ll never find a senior riding the bus. If you are wise enough to think ahead, you'll start begging Daddy for a car as a Freshman or go to work as soon as possible to save for one. If all else fails, either bum a ride from the guy down the street or walk. A really cool Senior is never seen without his letterjacket and class ring. The only exception is for the guys. They may let their current girlfriend wear both no matter how long the jacket is on her or how many rolls of tape are wrapped around the ring. For the most part, jackets are worn year around and class rings are never taken off One thing all Seniors lack is time. Many are involved in extracurricular activities that take up afternoons, evening, and weekends. Even more hold down part time jobs at places like Target and Minimax. Homework, if done at all, is saved for the very last part ofthe day which is after Johnny Carson. This is a very good reason as to why Seniors are frequently caught dozing in Brit. Lit. or Eco. Taking all aspects into consideration, the yan Even the cold couldn't stop Senior Kenny Martinez from having a good time at the Wednesday night hayride. C.

QQ, S6969 It's hard to define this common "Senioritis,,, but it seems to hit seniors at some point in their last year of high school and some even sooner.

Many seniors have come to realize how hard it is to leave campus for lunch. "By the time you drive to McDonald's, or wherever you are going, there is no time to eat before getting back to schoolj, quoted a senior. Another disadvantage of this privilege is underclassmen sneak ing out. Most seniors wait for the big day that they can leave campus for lunch, but then they find out Juniors and un- derclassmen take advantage of this privilege also. Do seniors still consider eating off campus a privilege? "I feel that it is a privilege because you don't have to eat cafeteria food," said Laurie Boydstun. "It's definitely a privilege, since ll throu h my 3 S underclassman years I looked forward to itf, said Yui Choe. "If the underclassmen would wait until their senior year to take advantage of this privilege, I feel it would be more meaningfulf' "It's supposed to be a senior privilege. A lot of underclassmen go out so I don't consider it a senior privilegef' said Christy Mata. by Erika Hoss Kristi'Skinner attacked by mad taco.

H Q These are times of change: No longer is it considered fun or "cool,' to make prank calls or wrap houses, now the current craze which is sweeping Alief is called Nabbin', and though some take it to extremes which may involve illegalities, it is really nothing more than an elaborate version of wrapping houses. Now the question from those who are momentarily oblivious to this talent Cotherwise known as Beginning Nabbers as opposed to Experienced Nabbersl arises as to exactly what is Nabbin'? Nabbin' involves the "borrowing" of various articles of junk from around town and placing these objects in the yards of unsuspecting victims. New teenage pranks seem to come and go with each generation: whether or not this current craze will last remains to be seen, yet, for now, the Nabbers of Alief continue to nab to their hearts content - or at least until something better comes along. Many assure you, however, that will never happen. by Ruthie Garcia 'V'L.1rf T? J ,..

The level of intensity ranged from tears and anger during dismal football seasons to one of high energy and cheers of this yearis season. The emotions of the senior class were exhausted due mainly to three losing football seasons and this year's close-but-not-quite trip to the dome. With their visible support shown by poster parties, camouflage outfits, cakes and Nabbin' excursions, the senior class proved its spirit to be of the highest quality. by: Ruthie Garcia 'Q Seniors - yeah - stand up and cheer let 'em know youlre here.

Both were selected to play varsity football for their sophomore year and have now played varsity for three years. "When I was chosen to play varsity football I was excited and scarced. It took some getting used to but the coach helped me through it," David said. He also commented that his friends didn't treat him any different. He felt that the underclassmen who are moved up to varsity get some harrassment, no matter what sport, but it also gives them a great opportunity to excel in that sport. "I was excited and Nervous about playing varsity footballf' Jeff said. He commented that his dad being head coach had little to do with him playing varsity his sophomore year. At that time varsity had several injuries, and he was called on to play because of the lack of personnel for the position. Both David and Jeff will continue to be involved in football. David will be going to the University of Houston on a l four year scholarship. Jeff will consider academics as well as football when he chooses which athletic scholarship to accept.

Though this only effects the spling semester of each graduating class, seniors feel it is a well-deserved privilege. In order to avoid taking the final, seniors must have no more than four absenses and a grade of a g'C', or above.

Everyone would like to receive these prestigious awards as they walk across the platform on graduation night. These seniors are the excellent students in our school, the academic achievers. But it's not as easy as just wanting to graduate with honors. These students have spent endless hours reading, writing research papers, and studying, not to mention the homework, which they have done enough of in the past four years to last them a lifetime. They should be proud of themselves because they have strived for the A.I.S.D. goal of "Excellence in Education" and they have reached that goal. 2 This year, there were nine Summa Cum Laudes, eighteen Magna Cum Laudes, and forty-nine Cum Laudes.

We sought out those who were like ourselves, and friendships were formed. Some of those first friendships have ended, but many have grown into the close relationships we now share with the people we have grown up with. Now we are considered adults, the end of our first stage of education is complete. Finally, it is the time we have dreamed of during the seemingly endless hours we have spent in classrooms. Graduation: Our main goal for the past thirteen years. Though graduation was a happy occasion for all, the tears flowed as we realized that those with whom we have shared the fullest part of our lives with will no longer be there.

Now this is a broad topic and a big section. From the huge football player to the tiny diver, each have strengths and skills that are necessary in his or her particular athletic field. With nine different sports offered, the students and the coaches stay busy at the gym, complex, track, and natatorium. Because we are a 5A school, our competitors are the largest Houston area schools. Our district 17-5A includes the six Spring Branch schools and of course, our oldest rival, Hastings. The newest sport came this year with soccer, both boy's and girl's programs were introduced to the Alief schools. Team sports as usual drew the biggest crowds for old time favorites such as football, volleyball, basketball, and baseball. Individuals strove for personal recognition in such events as track and cross country, golf tennis, and swimming and diving. With the constant backing of the administration, and faculty and student body, sports always receives the support it needs to thrive as one of our most developed programs. by Brena Baumann Nas t.

The biggest issue dealt with the question of eligibility of a Stratford football player resulting in Elsik being declared runner-up in the District race too late as the Rams never got the chance to prove their worth in the Astrodome. Despite the productive season, losses to McCullough, Memorial and to Stratford on Homecoming were deeply felt since the momentum and spirit before the games reached the highest possible level. Elsik's worst defeat by far was the 2 1 - 1 4 loss to Hastings at the close ofthe season. Though the Rams proved to be the better, more talented team throughout the season, they were not able to channel their efforts into Wayne La Plante andhthe rest of the Ram defense signal the sidelines.

JV team: Stri ing for improvement Though this was not neccessarily the Year of the Ram for the Junior Varsity football team, it was a year of promise for the players. This year,s JV team, under the direction of Coach Pless, Coach Howe, and Coach Copley worked hard while earning their three and seven record.

This year, the cheerleaders worked to support all sports organizations of Elsik. They attended swim meets, cross country meets, and supported many other teams during the year. The girls began practicing immediately after they were elected in May 1982, to prepare for the Blue-White game. During the summer there were also many long hard practices. Cheerleading camp was held in August at Sam Houston State University. Here, the girls worked to perfect their skills and learn new ideas. Elsik, along with close to 150 other lively squads, competed for ribbons, awards, and spirit sticks. Elsik was chosen as one of eight finalists to compete for the award of excellence, which is held on the last day of camp. Cindy Oberthier, cheerleader sponsor, comments,"The girls are most certainly a select group. They work hard and perform with precision. I had no doubt they would be a part of the final judging. I'm extremely proud of each and every one of them and their accomplishments."

Even though the team came out great in their season, some people feel they could have done a little bit better. "We work well together, but sometimes pressure builds up and we loose that 'togetherness' . . .One of us may do something wrong and we tend to place the blame on someone else, and every once in a while, a little jealousy sets in. I think that at one time or another we're all guilty of this," explains Birggitt Haderlein. Volleyball is not just a ball, a net and a group of silly girls standing around hitting a ball. The game takes skill, lots of hard work and dedication. The girls proved this in the way that they played and the time and hard work they had to get into shape. The team consists of such fine players as Kara Kellogg, Birggitt Haderlein, Michelle Craig, Karen Gray, Stacey Lackey, Lynice Lawless, Ronda Miller, Marlene Nunez, Lori Reede, Felicia Seales, Kristi Skinner and coach Brannan. by Ruthanne Mullins: The girls rejoice over victory.

One night its a football game and the next, a trip down Westheimer. With half a dozen theaters nearby, movies are still a favorite pasttime. Parties range from Toga to Luau with few regulations as to what goes on. Student holidays provide the much needed time for shopping and working. The longer breaks send students running to the beaches, slopesg and for seniors, visiting prospective colleges. Although some events included in this section arenit school sponsored, most of them are. Homecoming and Powder Puff are two such events that take lots of preparation and are as traditional as student life itself The Freshman Slave Sale is almost as lively as the Hastings game pep rally. Drama plays and the annual Talent Show give students a taste of high school talent just as much as half time with the Ram Band and Revelliers. The serious side of student life is school. That means homework that fills up afternoons. Evenings, hopefully, are salvaged for something more exciting than World History worksheets. the dreaded research paper is a sure way to kill at least one weekend if not more. Of course there is work. With high percentages of teenagers in the job force, a student's life is sometimes planned in accordance to a work schedule. But through it all, we reflect on our high school years as a time of carefree fun. by Brena Baumann 104 Student Life Showing her sweet innocent look is Renee Bates at the Toga Party for her 18th birthday.

Spirit and enthusiasm was generated for the game not only on Friday, but all through the week. The Student Congress sponsored a spirit week. A different style of clothing was designated to wear on each day of the week. This contributed to the abundance of spirit that was shown. In the halls, the Fight Song, which could be heard over the intercom between classes, was joined by students with such cheers as "Eat more bear meat!" and HBeat the Bears!" Even though we lost the game, the Rams put up a good fight against the Bears, with the final score being Bears 21-Rams 14.

Act two featured a dance that was done by the Jester, with the help of his father's shadow.

Drama Play 117 The stor behind the star f'Biggest high in the world for me is to hear an audience laugh and applaud. Itis one of the best feelings I've ever felt.',These are the words of Chris Ayres, one of the most distinguished performers in the Elsik High School Drama department. His very first inspiraton to act was triggered by Roddy McDowell and Vincent Priceis stunning performances on the screen. Thereafter, he knew his heart had succumbed to the "theatre," which he defines as a realm of life where fantasy can become reality. He has since done over 100 plays during his eleven years of intense involvement in the theatre. One ofthe peak moments in his career was the 1981 State speech tournament. As a result of his outstanding performance playing Dudley Moore in "Beyond the Fringej, one of the judges beamed that "Dudley deserves an Oscar. Heis a ten." However, Chris has had some less than spectacular times. Once he was criticized for being too short, thus preventing him from winning that role. He reminesces, "I was mad after all, wasn't Napoleon short?" And, what is his opinion about the Elsik Drama Department? Chris declares, "Mr, St. Claire is one of the best directors that we've ever had. Everyone is enjoying a great year." He adds, "Mr, St.Claire is more than merely a teacher. He's a real friend who cares alot about the students he works withf' Interestingly enough, his favorite colors are red and black. The red symbolizes passion and ambition, which perfectly matches his personality. In fact, his visions for the future are quite firm: 'SI want to be like Danny Kaye is on Broadway? So, he has talent, ability, and years of invaluable experience, the ingredients that spell success. But what does he feel about life in general?

Freshman or Senior, North or South, nothing could matter less when the lights are blinding your eyes and nerves have overtaken your senses. Charles Stinneford speaks for the others when he says, "Performing is a way of expressing yourself without feeling many oftside pressures. It allows you to be yourself and feel good about what you're doing."Atul Shah adds that his involvement with the band "has been more than worth the expense of time and effort." Gruelling practice and long hours of preparation are, Plain and simple, hard work, But do these students mind? Of course not!! As Debbie Strube puts it, "Even though Revies is a lot of hard work, when you bring home a sweepstakes trophy, it's worth it.', A true performer can suffer months of getting ready for that one big chance. When the applause sounds or the award is received, they are repaid for their efforts. Soon after, they are revived from their exhaustion and are ready to stan all over again.

The Band, Revelliers and Cheerleaders participated in the Alief Autumn Festival parade. The Alief Autumn Festival is an annual celebration held every October to announce the coming of Fall to Alief It begins with the parade starting at Chancellor Elementary and ends at the Alief Athletic Complex. Participants in the parade are various drill teams, bands, cheerleaders, dance companies, area merchants, congress- men, radio station DJ,s, and area police and fire department personnel. The Festival itself takes place at Amity Park, the permanent location of the previous eight festivals. At Amity Park you can enjoy the many sights and sounds that go on all weekend, such as a variety of foods, merchants selling their wares and the country-westem dance on Saturday night. The Festival proves to be a big success every year. The Foley's Thanksgiving Day Parade is also an annual parade that the Revies and Band perform in. The parade was televised on Channel l l this year. This is an Honor for Elsik, because in order to perform in the parade one must be asked by invitation only. by Christy Mata Cheerleaders chant before the parade. C.

People began jogging, exercising and working out in their spare time. Of course, people had to dress for the occasion - legwarmers, leotards, tights, and sweats became everyday apparel. Of these fads only legwarmers were wom to school because of our AISD dress code, but off campus, exercise clothes were the rage. 122 Student Life Hair. The variety was there - wavy, curly, straight, blonde, brun- ette, red. Punker's hair ranged from pink to purple to bright yellow and always stuck up at least 2 inches. Preppie hair was a bit more The newest thing in hair. A popular style. infamous: badly famous B.F.E.: far away tbooniesl conservative - neat short, basic colors. These were the extremes, and most people fit somewhere in between. Girl's hair usually ranged from short to shoulder length and was worn permed, curled, naturally curly or sometimes just plain straight. For guys, it was just below the ears, but ranged from the "burr" to shoulder length hair neatly groomed. The mle for hair is: almost anything goes. Hair-rendous! H' A favorite fad was buttons as shown by Justus Taylor as he modeled some of the more popular ones. f'New-Wavers" Cuddly creatures New Wave music has made a big splash at Elsik in the last couple of years. ltjust this year became an influence on the dress of Elsik's students. New Wavers prided themselves on their many unusual clothes and hairstyles that made them unique. Cropped and dyed hair became more "normal'l as the year went by. They went for the more casual look of jeans and decorated t-shirts. Their accessories also set them apart - buttons, safety pins, chains, and bandanas just to name a few. And so a new clique was formed. News and blues Several things happened this year that made headlines in our newspapers. The biggest event was the "Extra-Strength Tylenol Tragedy". It started in Chicago in the fall of '82 when someone tampered with the capsules by adding cyanide to them and then placing the product back on the shelf The results were devastating - seven people lost their lives. A recession plagued the country creating unemployment and hard times for everyone. President Reagan, who was elected in 1980, cut back on various social programs, including social security and college funding. The Equal Rights Amendment was defeated in the second session of the 97th Congress - it failed to receive the two-thirds vote it needed to pass. Texas brought back capitol punishment by having the first man to be executed by lethal injection. On a more positive note, Kathy Whitmyer was swom in as Houston's first female mayor. it's been real: fun, but not real fun New Wavers: non-violent punkers. whipped: hooked on someone Those adorable little creatures that helped us escape into unreality have become extremely popular. Everywhere you looked there was an E.T. shirt, a Garfield Poster or alittle Smurf playing football or tennis. E.T. is the Extra-Terrestrial being who is so ugly that he's cute. Garfield is the laziest cat. Smurfs are cute little blue beings that bring happiness and peace to the world.

Then students grew tired of plain white sox. Brightly colored patterns and designer sox became an integral part of fashion. Finally the variety of shoes made a statement about current fashion. For many girls, low patent leather pumps with bows were a necessity. Vans were popular for both sexes. Female rockers could be seen in low-heeled boots with rolled-up cuffs. Western "kikker" boots were also popular for guys and girls. Individual tastes were expressed by fashions below the knee.

We loved French fries, shakes, hamburger, pizza, tubs of Coke, nachosg but most of all, we loved desserts like apple pies, chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches, and sundaes. One of the students favorite fringe benefits was those fun contest game cards, they spent time scratching off the silver to see if they won prizes while munching on cold, greasy French fries.

The rings were ordered in September from the Herff Jones Company and were delivered shortly before the Christmas holidays. The tradition of twisting and turning rings was carried out while students compaired their rings to their friends. The most popular style was the traditional design ofthe ram head on one side and the state seal on the other. The most common stone was the March - aquamarine birth stone which is light blue. The average cost of a girl's ring was S135 and a boy's ring was S 175.

Students do the "usual', like going out to eat. Favorite places of Elsik students were "Gattis,,, 'fChilis',, "Frys',, and the ever popular "McDonalds,', and "Taco Bell". Movies are usually a good source of entertainment, but not many people are willing to shell out S4. 50 per shot, therefore, the S2 midnight and matinee shows have become increasingly popular. For the more bold is the activity of clubbing: a favorite activity of many seniors. Clubs offer dancing and major socializing. Most popular with the 'fclubbersn were Faces, Confettis, Z-Street, Rockers, Fools Gold, and Wild Wild West. For those unfortunate souls who fail to meet the requirement of f'proper', I.D., "Texas Breezea' and "Rock-abiliesw offer teennight. A new form of nightlife is the art of nabbin which consists of placing various articles of j unk in the yards of others. The obj ect of Nabbing is to see who can 'fnabi' the most unusual item without getting caught. Still fairly popular are the old standbys: Rocky Horror Picture Show and video game rooms By far, the most popular way to spend the weekend in Alief is Partying. Though not known for much else, Alief is known for its parties. You can be sure that every Friday and Saturday night "someone', will have a party and "everyone', will be there! After the parties end or are broken up by the ever present cops of Alief students make a beeline to "Jack-In-The-Boxw, the most "Another Tough Yearbook Assignment!"

The money is needed to add extra income to the familyls budget. Fortunately, this is not the case for most of our working students. Most people find many ways to spend their well-earned money. Attending parties, dancing at clubs, seeing a movie or simply shopping on a Saturday afternoon can quickly drain any paycheck. Most adults work 9 to 5, but students work 5 to 9. The after-school or evening shifts can be found at a variety of places. Most are employed at retail stores such as Eckerd Drugs, Target, or Foley's. Grocery stores like Eagle and Randall's also draw in students. Still there are some that work in fast-food restaurants or even a doctors oftice. The minimum wageis 53.35 an hour, with the average number of hours worked being 17-20 hrs. With school and other activities, students manage to keep pretty busy. Many feel it is a learning experience and really enjoy their jobs. ff: FZ The original Pizza Man. Art Menendez, Chuck E. Cheese's. Photo C.

If it,s writing you like, join the Literary Club or the Rampage staff If you want to learn about music, become a band or choir member. If math and science are your best subjects, join the math, sciene, computer science, or JETS club. If you enjoy being involved in school, Student Congress or National Honor Society is for you. If it's performing you like, Revelliers or Drama and Speech is perfect. Foreign Languages may interest you, so don't just take the class, join the club. And the list goes on. Most of the clubs donlt have a restricted membership like NHS or Ramblings staff Usually anyone from any grade is welcome to participate. Of course it does mean attending meetings before and after school, but these can be handled by most students if they aren't too frequent! The activities depend on the club. The French Club may dine at a fancy restaurant while the Christian Student Union visits nursing homes. Main events may travel downtown for a bit of culture while the Math club hosts a tournament. It really doesn't matter as long as the club has' a cause to work for. Whatever your interests are, you're bound to find a club. But if you're really looking for a wild and crazy club that doesn't mind being in debt and causing a ruckus, get on the yearbook staff and see how the school really runs. by Brena Baumann I tls we . .,..

To encourage participation, contests are held for cover art, poetry, and short stories. This year the winners were: Poetry - Eugenia Algaze, Short Stories - Huong Ho, and Cover Art - Phu Phu. The staff has open membership with editors, Kyle McCrea1y, Stephanie Zimmerman, and Richard Hussenini, chosen by Julia Wrotenbery. She is also the c1ub's consultant on literature submitted, and Claire Hook is the advisor on art submitted. Voices welcomes the entire student body to participate and encourages all art and literature contributions.

Some students make plans to attend college while others look for part-time jobs. The students who do not plan on college may be interested in a program called Vocational Education. The Vocational Education system introduces students to the working world in areas of securing jobs, managing money, insurance, character development and safety. Elsik's Vocational system is divided into two programs. The Vocational Cooperative program fcofopj enables students to attend school half a day and then go to work in an occupation in which they can achieve their maximum potential. Furthermore, students will gain a first hand knowledge of their working field in which they can leam job responsibilities and employer-employee relations. The other part of the program is the Pre-Employment Labs. These classes prepare students for entering Cooperative Training and gives them basic background of the career they choose. Students learn job-interview techniques, consumer credit and buying. Both of the Vocational programs are joined together through Vocational Industrial Clubs of America CVICAJ. Vocational leadership clubs give students an opportunity to take part in the leadership and the decision-making process. It also allows them to compete in area and state vocational contests giving them a chance to see the value of competition and excellence as well as to meet many students from other areas of the state. Throughout the next several pages, one will be able to take a closer look into the exciting and productive world of Vocational education. by .L Rengert 176 Vocational In Auto Mechanics class, Jim Pittman works vsnth a drill , In Drafting, Robert Huber poses for our camera.

Distributive ducation Distributive Education is a cooperative class which involves the fields of retailing, wholesaling, and service selling occupations. DE allows a student to gain instruction on a certain job through the classroom and on the job. "Because the job market is so tough, many jobs require people with experience," said Mrs. Fuchs, DE teacher. "The Alief area is hiring people with some experience. If one doesn't have any experience, its hard to get a good job. That's why DE can be an advantage to students." While in Distributive Education a student will have an opportunity to learn advertising, salesmanship, job interview procedures, econ- omics, and a wide range of individualized topics. DE presents training in certain fields such as advertising, fashion sales, gift sales, food store operation, music store operation and auto parts sales and services to name a few. "I think our programs are necessary with todayis economy. It gives students a chance to make contacts and references. Students also have scholarship opportunitiesj, said Mrs. Fuchs.

"I certainly enjoy the program. A lot of the students from Elsik put forth good efforts," said Mr. Martin, the vocational drafting teacher. The program is designed for the student who knows nothing about drafting. The first 12 weeks is spent with fundamentals such as, lettering, dimensioning, etc.. Then the student progresses to general drafting of stairs, foundations and detail structural steel drawings. "Most students who take our first year of drafting come back for the second year. I believe that indicates somewhat of how the course is enjoyedj, said Mr. Martin. M ,..f vr"' ' I President Sonya Yielding concentrates Drafters are supplied with good equipment. rafting Second year students do more detailed drafting. They specialize in pipe drafting and learn to calculate fabrication drawings. Students are supplied with tools, equipment, and materials comparable to those used in the drafting industry. "Since the economy is not good right now, if a student goes through vocational drafting, he! she will have a better chance at a job in that field. And the jobs they will obtain often pay very good money," said Mr. Martin. The vocational drafting course is exciting in itselfi but special items of interest are field trips studying industry, cooperation with their vocational classes, and a youth leadership group. If students are interested in drafting and look into this course, they will be taking the right angles to start them in a more rewarding and enjoyable career. Voc.

ICT For the industrious student The industrial side of vocation is Industrial Cooperative Training. It is a schoolfwork program designed to provide the know-how and skills needed by high school students for entry into industrial occupations. "Employers like ICT students. They have a better chance at obtaining a job than other people because they already have experience in a choosen field," said Mrs. Hinze, ICT instructor. A student interested in ICT needs to be 16 years old and at least a junior in high school before he can join the program. Students go to school for 4 periods. Part of the school day is spent in academic classes while one period a day is spent in ICT with the coordinator. "It's a neat program. It lets juniors and seniors collect valuable experience while in high school," said Mrs. Hinze. Students are supervised by trained, experienced employees in such areas as, Auto Repair, Sheet Metal Occupation, Television Repairman, Baker, Carpenter and Painter to name a few. "It's good to take ICT now if interested. It will help the student work hisfher way through collegej' said Mrs. Hinze. Students who plan on entering a work field related to Industry should check into ICT and its advantages. For the experience and skill, one can't go wrong.

Students obtain on-the-job training as well as lab experiences. "I believe VOE is very useful to students interested. It is helpful to the college bound student as well as non-college bound studentj' said Mairim Simon. OEA is the vocational club associated with VOE. Mairim is an Elsik student who is president of this club and very active in it as well as VOE. "I learn useful skills that will be of use to me in college and after college also,', said Mairim. The first phase of VCE is a laboratory course. Juniors and Seniors who are interested in business and want to prepare for employment in office occupations begin here. They learn the basic operations such as, typing, working with calculators, operating dictating machines and other office equipment." VOE utilizes all the basic skills acquired from previous classes such as, Shorthand, Accounting, Typing, etc.,', said Mrs. Thomlinson, VOE teacher. The second phase of VOE allows senior students to attend school half a day and go to work on an actual job location the rest ofthe day. Students are employed by approved businesses who pay them a wage and train them in certain areas. "The student has the chance to try an office position that I place them in to see if they enjoy it. The business that they work at and I help the students with any problems," said Mrs. Thomlinson. "I believe the class is very good and worthwhile for students interested in office occupationsj' said Mrs. Thomlinson. Students may study such careers as: Bookkeeping, Clerical Occupations, Cashiers, Secretaries, Receptionists, Typists, and other jobs that make VOE an exciting and enjoyable class.

The right mechanics General Mechanical Repair is the vocational class that deals with machines. They range from lawnmowers to automobiles. Nevertheless, they all have engines which is the study of the course. "I enjoy working with engines. Fixing lawnmowers and cars is a good way to spend the afternoon," said Mike Lindley, Elsik student. GMR provides the students the opportunity to acquire a vocational skill in mechanics. Students can move up through GMR which can help them with employment to jobs in this area. "It's educational. I learn new things all the time, said Jerry Pitt, Elsik student. GMR is held at Hastings but Elsik students still obtain full use of all equipment and get the same advantage as Hastings students. "It's fun. I enjoy working with cars. It's a great way to spend part of my school day,', said John Jewett, who is also from Elsik. For those who are interested in mechanical repair, GMR is the road to travel because of its vast area of education and general good times. Students learn how to repair automotive, motorcycle, and lawn mower engines. Automotive repair is a major career in GMR. OEA-GMR 189 At the greenhouse, a student cares for some flowers.

Building Trades A career that grows For students interested in the construction industry or related areas, Building Trades is the class to take. "With the high unemployment rate, students need as much experience as they can get before they get out of high school,', said Larry Breazeale, building trades instructor. Each student spends two class periods involved with building trades and the remaining periods per day in two other high school courses needed for graduation. Training is provided through lab experiences and other closely related school activities. Students learn how to establish a building site, pour concrete foundation, framing structure, sheetrocking, painting and other related jobs. "We're making an effort to serve all levels of youngsters for gainful employment when they leave high school," said Lott Brooks, Vocational Director, "And some of our programs are unique. For example, our students have the chance to build a house from the ground up." Students who are interested in entering the Building Trades class should have a general knowledge of math, electricity and woodworking. For the student who is serious about the construction industry, Building Trades can take them a long way. 'Tve personally talked to unions in Houston who say they will give students credit for high school programsfsaid Breazeale. Building Trades is a good program to enter for students interested. It can be a great advantage in the future and it will take you a long way in the present. Busm ess At the age of 16, Jim Ingram has more :sponsibility placed upon him than most ther students.

Casually you ask a few general questions: What,s your name? What are your classes? What grade are you in? The latter is the most important. Usually its easy to tell what grade someone is in by certain characteristics. For example, Freshman donat come any taller than 5'. Their growth stops in eighth grade only to make an extreme come back the summer before they are Sophomores. These "miny high schoolersl' get along pretty well unless they buy elevator passes or insult Seniors. Sophomores gain some self-confidence because they have successfully made the transition to high school. Now its time for them to throw away their map and become involved. At least now they have a class beneath them to push around. Juniors are a totally different story. This is when they begin to acquire, along with a class ring, the arrogance and apathy that it takes to be a Senior. Powder Puff is their first chance to prove just how tough they are.

Pictures ivww' gourd An Active Staff The teachers of our school not only provide a constant supply of homework, but leadership as well. Our faculty teaches citizenship as well as Algebra and history. The student body is fortunate not only for an excellent teaching staff but also for an involved staff Many sponsor and support various clubs, sports, and school activities. This keeps many teachers busy with more than school work, but its certainly appreciated by the students. A revolutionary way of teaching in Alief is AIM or Alief Instructional Model. This teaching program adopted by AISD has been taught to our teachers through a series of workshops. Their concm for the students is evident by the constant improving and sharping of teaching skills. by Brena Baumann min English teacher and Literary Club sponsor, Mrs. Julia Wrotenbury.

When he told the Drama Club that he collects lunch boxes he wasn't kidding. Mr. Neil St. Clair has well over 200 different lunch boxes from all over America and even one from China. In addition to collecting lunch boxes he also collects science fiction novels, plays, records, bubble gum cards, and all sorts of interesting tidbits. Mr. St. Clair has been acting professionally since 1975 and has done several touring company productions. It was in fact during Mr. St. Clair shows his collection to a friend.

A different so of teacheris pe Like most people, Biology teacher Rick Grossman likes animals. Not just cats and dogs but snakes and tarantulas, too. He first became interested in snakes when he worked at the Philadelphia Museum of Natural History. So three years ago he bought a newbom boa constrictor and named her Miss Scarlet because of the red color of her tail. At the time, Miss Scarlet was about as big around as a pencil and not too much longer, but, with her monthly diet of one rat, she has now grown to a length of three and a half feet. When Mr. Grossman moved to Texas, Miss Scarlet was transported in a pillow case. Needless to say, she received a lot of attention from the other passengers on the plane. Why a boa constrictor as a pet? Mr. Grossman replied, 'GBecause sheis different and unusual and she's interesting to watch." In addition to Miss Scarlet, Mr. Grossman also has a cat. Because of the up kittenis misfortune of being abandoned, she was appropriately named Tsooris which means heartbreak and sorrow in Yiddish. by Kim VonDerAu Kay Stephenson, Linda Graessle, Susan Talley and Kermit.

As far as business goes at Elsik, he has the final say. This applies to hiring teachers, evaluation of teachers and curriculum and most importantly budgeting for classes. Mr. Porter is the principal overall, but each house has its own principal. Elsie Keeling is North House principal and Charles Cothran is South House principal. Each principal has basically the same duties in their respective houses, but Mr. Porter sees that both houses work together. According to Mr. Porter, this first full year at the new Elsik has been one of Elsik's better years. With the supervision of the administration and staff and the cooperation of the students the year has flown by smoothly. "0verall, it's been a good year," said Mr. Porter. by Kim VonDerAu Bobby Porter - Coordinating Principal ,M-.,...,..,,,lm.M E WH' " wum"""""""""""'ff14-M At.- MW... ,,,, ia ,UAWWW 1i,,,M Elsie Keeling - North House Principal Charles Cothran - South House Principal 222 Administration .. and those second in command Believe it or not, Elsik Assistant rincipals don't spend all their me sending students to deten- on hall and IBS. ,They spend most of their time ,onitoring student activities, andling discipline referrals, 'aluating and observing classes, lonitoring attendance of stu- ents and in the words of South ssistant Principal, Frank trrett, "any other duty as ssignedf' Gwen Tooke, South Assistant Principal for students A-M, is in charge of textbooks for South House, detention hall and teacher duty for South House.

In the North House, Dirk Engel is responsible for disciplining North House students A-L, all maintenance for the North House, North lockers, bus duty and IBS. And last but not least, North House Assistant Principal Patsy Hoover monitors attendance of North House students M-Z, oversees detention hall for North House, shares textbook respon- sibilities with Mrs. Tooke, and prepares ballots and monitors any voting during the school year. by Kim VonDerAu J...- Dirk Engel - North Assist. Principal Patsy Hoover - North Assist. Principal Principals 223 Counselors fill void "Our goal is to help the students help themselvesj' says South House counselor Dick Whatley. Elsik's counseling system consists of six qualified men and women, all working to help Elsik students with problems ranging from educational to personal. For instance, in the North House, John Hall counsels students A-G, Charlene Baker is in charge of students H-O, and Charlotte Thornton counsels students P-Z. In the South House, Dick L...- X John Hall - North 5' f Ginger Jones - South 224 Administration Whatley helps students A-E and U-Z, Carolyn Clark counsels students F-MI and Ginger Jones is in charge of students MO-T. "There,s something going on all the time," say Elsik counselors. They keep busy by monitoring tests like the SAT, ACT, PSAT and TABS and helping students with individual problems. The counselors can use the testing information in helping the students with personal or educa- tional problems. They may not always have the solutions but they do have the referral systems. That in itself is pretty time consuming. But this doesn't include the many weeks spent on class schedules and the individual meetings between each student, parent, and counselor. Counselors fill a certain void for the students. "We're not teachers and we're not administrators.

A wide variety of organizations is offered at school and a majority of students join at least one, if not more. To make more room for candid pictures ofthe organizations the group pictures have been taken out of their normal place and put in a section of their own. This is the place where all the members of all the sports and all the clubs are pictured. Group pictures will mainly be used for reference when recalling the members and officers of any club.

'Z L 'l Senior Index 291 Picilnfes ovm High School Memorabilia At the beginning of this yearbook, you, the student, were told that the student body is really Elsik and this building we attend classes in is merely the shell that houses us nine months a year, five days a week, seven hours a day. Throughout this book we have shown who really is Elsik. Through pictures and copy, as many events were covered as we, the stafi could get to. The people pictured are all your peers and classmates. Many you will recognize and many you won't, but together we are Elsik. Ramblings '83 is nothing but high school memorabilia, it was designed for that purpose only.

Zigi. . pf: , . ,S f Pb Q 5 Closing 293 ditor's Note Well, this year is over and I must admit Pm sorry to see it end. It seems like I've had too much fun to have been a student at the same time. Working on this yearbook has been part of that fun. It is the best thing I'll have to remind me of my Senior year. Sure the friends, class ring, tassel and cords, and diploma will bring back memories, but none can illustrate this year like Ramblings '83, It is a treasurer that I'll always cherish and I hope you will too. A great deal of work went into this book by many people. This staff was great and so was their work. We had some real swingers who kept things lively throughout the year. The most prominent one in my mind is Ruthie. I've come to the conclusion that this Commando Queen will spend the rest of her life in hot rollers. Lil' Deb provided hypothesis with great scientific value: junk food can sustain life and Cameros can still run though filled to capacity with Coke and Tab cans. Colleen and I are M8LM buddies. We had great lunches outside Minimax of yogurt, grape soda, barbecued fritos, and, ofcourse, M8LM's. That Bunny made great caramal brownies too. Dear Allan was the best dressed of us all. CGQ all the way D Its good to know that he got his window fixed so he wouldn't always have that wind blown look. John was good for a joke or two though most weren't any too proper. Laurie cheered us through the year to a big finish at the Schindler Ranch along with Mark and Nick. All three of them deserve a big cheer for their fantastic all-day party. Christy deserves praise for not only getting us shoestrings, but also Liquid Paper from Buffalo Pharmacy. Terri, well she tried but Ruthie influenced her too much ! Gust kiddingj. This Clubs section editor worked hard on chasing down pictures and writing copy. Dingy Marie proved to be a valuable asset when she and Debbie finished the Fads and Fashion layout on the day of deadline. Those wonderful staffers who got the two most boring jobs are Misty, Bethy, and Ericka who did Classes and Index. They deserve many thanks. Kim and Jennifer became our ad solicitors to Alief businesses. J eff along with Marie, tackled the Vocations, which for the first time were put in a section of their own. Kim had the honor of putting the administration in their place, fin the faculty section ofcourse D. The two that spent most of their time running around the school in search of pictures and information for Clubs were Rhonda and Angie. My two favorite Brillo heads were Joel and Troy. For taking such bad pictures they sure spent a lot of time in the darkroom "printing,' their best shots. Last and also least come the photographers. These poor people have had their brains rotted by Dektol and Orbit bath. You can tell by the way they dress: everything from garish plaid pants and red silk Ralph Lauren ties with brown ducks to parachute pants and button downs buttoned all the way up! Oh well, I must say they did excellet work this year 294 Closing although Ilm not humblely in their debt nor did I add th- Editor's note to their page. Cathy, head photographer, was great about running he MG to all the football games though she preferre portraits. Lee Ann had a very candid approach to refusin photo work orders. She would simply tell any staffer th she didn't feel like it! Now Peter, he was real good abou taking pictures at a moment's notice. He also gave the be parties as all of Alief knows land probably everyone els since they all camel. Chris did such good work and so muc of it that he received the J oumalism Award. Glenn joine us half way through the year and was by far the preppie photographer we have ever had. He had an MG lik Cathy's except his was an orange Midget. These people di a lot of their work outside school and we appreciate the giving up their free time to take, process, and pri pictures. The entire staff deserves recognition for a job well don This yearbook was a big project and although we enj oye it, I'm sure we are all glad its finally finished. Three teachers in particular I would like to thank fo helping me through this year. First of all, and a ne addition to the Elsik faculty, Mr. Fairman. Though he c us all a lot of slack, we still learned the details of o govemment and economy. He was never too busy to te us about college and the "real world,'. Next is Mrs. Malon who postponed essay tests and didnlt count tardies C attendance for that matterj. She taught AP History an sponsored NHS along with Mrs. Wrotenbury. And finall Mrs. Osmon. She was the Ramblings and Rampag sponsor. Without her, we would never have gotten all th' finished by deadline. I really enjoyed working with Mr Osmon and I can forge her signature perfectly. Than Elsik, for a great four years. bww? Brena. EDITOR V L Ramblings Staff PARKING ANY NMS Duz Dallas, Laurie Lee, Colleen Bunny, GSL Marie. STUDENT LIFE . 5 Rhonda, Starbuck, Angie, Kim.
