Lackey wet weather at the Hastings game didn't dampen the spirit of Revelliers We are the future. At least we think we are. After spending the majority of our young lives in classrooms, stadiums, shopping malls, on the phone, and at part-time jobs, we will all eventually graduate to the challenges and responsibilities of the real world. High school remains one of many stepping stones on the road to success in an ever changing world. Everything we learn in school, whether we realize it or not, will help us achieve in some way. Whether it's geometric proofs, sentence diagramming, or the massive crowds and lines in the cafeteria, we experience the importance of an education, as we learn to solve different kinds of problems and get along with people for seven hours a day. We cannot take charge in the future if we do not take care of business in the present. How can we expect to run for a political office, be a lawyer, teacher, raise Photo by R. Law Onl the Beginning . . . a family, or pay our bills without learning the basic tools of living while building our confidence and integrity. Our generation will be part of the backbone of society in years to come. If we expect to leave our mark in history, then the rough edges need polishing before we can effectively meet challenges of tomorrow. When that joyous day in May rolls around and we step across that platform, we'll be on our way to a new life. We'll be expected to make decisions on our own, keep a budget, wash our own clothes, cook our own meals, and elect our own government. We can either forget what we've learned in the past twelve years, or we can use it to grow and make the best of our lives. Whether we believe it or not, We will be the decision makers of tomorrow.

Hahn Getting Started 3 Preparing For Tomorrow Good Times: High school, known for its good times and great memories, also contained some bad times. Besides school itself, the world around us experienced frightening acts of nature and mankind. We weath- ered through Hurricane Alicia, a winter cold spell that hit a pipe-breaking temperature of 10 on Christmas Day, and the great flood of Alief. We made it throughbombingsin Lebannon, Grenada invasions, and the Russian gunning down of a Korean airplane. But still, those weekend adventures and parties we attended will be just as unforgettable. Personalities: These last four years before going to college, or simply stepping out to conquer the world, are moments for building individuality. Except for some unique people, peer pressure seems to make us blend into one personality. Of course, age has a lot to do with it. Freshmen thrive on being just like everyone else, but by the time we are seniors, the world has had a glimpse of our true selves. Competition: Our football team struggled through a tough season after losing a large number of players last year. Yet, All American Senior Sammy O'Brient seems destined for a bright athletic future. Startling was the news of Coach Bryant's resignation as Coach Sciba stepped in as the new coordinating coach. Senior Iolanda Jones and Junior Wendi Pena led the girls' cross country team to a 7th place finish. Participation : Band, choir, and drama remained the strong holds of clubs and or- ganizations. Grease, the movie and Broadway play, marked the first major musical production of the drama and chorale departments. The journalism department cleaned house with a new adviser and brought home three state individual awards for photos and ads. HOSA sent many students to state. Learning: High school becomes a chance for us to learn to live with the way people are and to get along with them. Through teachers, counselors, and administrators we learn the importance of an education and importance of friends. We're taughttolookaheadandprepare for tomorrow. The mistakes we make today are simply added strengths for the future. Support: Without the necessary support of local merchants, the Ramblings '84 would not exist. Support also refers to families, teachers, and peers that stood behind us when difficult situations and prob- lems appeared as an uphill battle. As we graduate and take our knowledge and memories out the front door, seniors will no longer be at the top. Circumstances won't be as simple and as easy to solve as they were. We will be a part of a more complicated world, getting started all over again.

After days of planning and spirit building, the big night finally arrived. September 30 brought hun- dreds of spectators and many alumni through the gates of Alief Stadium. As the nominees for Homecoming Queen, Seniors Linda Curz, Michele Espinosa, Sandy Lawrence, Lisa Locke and Iennifer West, were escorted onto the field, the spirit of the evening came alive. The elected underclass court included Iunior Leslie Lawless, Soph- omore Michelle Williams, and Freshman Melissa Herzog. The crowd waited on the edge of their seats for the announcement of Homecoming Queen. The stadium speakers crackled as Iennifer West won the title of Queen. The ex- Iunior Dutchess Kim Adams is also a varsity cheerleader. Photo by R. Law Freshman Dutchess Melissa Herzog. Photo by T.

Before halftime, jennifer, co-captain of the Revelliers exclaimed, "I'm nervous. I'm even more nervous for the Revelliers . . . this routine is either gonna make it or break it, and I think they're gonna make it." Through all this hoopla of mums, getting dressed up and going out to dinner, the true meaning of Homecoming was still represented. Graduate Kim Kao said, "Even though we're Aggies now, we'll always be Rams at heart. Graduate David Walker summed it up saying, "I came back to Homecoming because I missed it. I just missed the people." By Misty Bogle, Editor-in-Chief Sophomore Dutchess Michelle Williams, Photo by S. Lackey I A dream came true.

Photo by Randy Law HomecominglGood Times 9 Homecoming Spirit Proves Spectacular "I'm gonna have a great time tonight!" exclaimed Senior Keith Patterson. That seemed to represent the general feeling of students all day long on Friday, September 30. Although the varsity team had failed to win a game until Homecoming, a special feeling of success filled the air that day. As Senior Angie Garvin described, "I think the spirit level has died down a bit lately, but after the pep rally it was as great as ever!" Even as one arrived at school that morning, it was evident that something different was happening. The many rolls of toilet paper draped over the school and the tiger hanging from the North House flagpole symbolized a great amount of spirit for the team on that day. After Coach Ward announced team captains Sammy O'Brient, Ioel Marino, and Ronnie Mindrup and each made his speech, Ronnie courageously bit the head off of a live lizard. Why did he do it? To show that he was fired-up for the game. What was the crowd's reaction? They loved it! All of the effort finally paid off when Elsik Won their first game of the season and defeated Spring Woods 7-0.

Lackey Homecoming!Good Times 11 41 GREASE is The Word As the crowd packed into the Little Theater on October 22nd and 23rd, a special moment occurred backstage. The cast held hands as Miss Boone said,"I want to pass the magic now," and magic it was for the drama and chorale departments. Their first major musical production, Grease, became a huge success. Maybe the new drama teacher Carolyn Boone hadsomething to do with it, or maybe the great amount of student support contributed to the show's pizazz. Perhaps the group that gathered every afternoon for hours of grueling practice constituted the main element of this exhibition of talent. Definitely a combina- tion of the three made the play a success. Senior Lisa Boulware and Junior Will Clark, portraying Sandy Dombrowski and Danny Zuko respectively, led the Grease cast and crew. Lisa has been involved in the theater since eighth grade playing Annie in her first role. "I auditioned for every play in school and I wanted this part. I knew Sandy would be a challenge because she changes so drastically in the end," explained Lisa Boulware. "A lot of people doubted Sandy just like a lot of people doubted me - but I did it." I just tried out for a part. I wanted to be in the play," described Will Clark. After learning that he had won the part of Danny Zuko, Will said, "After the initial shock and excitement wore off, I started thinking about the character and how I could develop him." When the curtain had closed and the theater had emptied, Lisa Boulware had one final thought, "I was higher keyed than I'd ever been, and I wanted to do it again and again and again."

You'll also hear such answers as Chili's, Mr. Gatti's, Westheimer, a concert or Windchimes. The occasion for being at a particular hangout varied. The most popular reasons were partying after a football game, being out on a date or just something to do on a Friday night. Iunior Chris Broussard explained, "I just like to go out and see my friends somewhere else than at school." Another popular hangout was one of Alief's many well-known parties. A party could be found by asking someone or just driving around and finding a house with a lot of cars outside it. Concerts also proved a frequent hangout. Houston drew groups such as The Police, Lionel Richie, Yes, Duran Duran, Heart, Stray Cats, Alabama and Genesis. "I like concerts because you get to see what you hear on the radio," said Iunior Missy Brown. Then, the sand, the waves, the sun . . . our old friend, the beach. Senior Rita Talastas said, "The beach is so much fun because you canjustload up your car with friends and go." Favorite beaches included Galveston, Surfside and Corpus Christi. By Rae Rabe, Assist.

It's senior powder puff Coach Wayne Watson describing the pressures of powder puff coaching. The game, which the seniors won, brought several changes. Attracting the most attention, the change in policy about not having nicknames on players, cheerleaders, or Blue Bomber shirts upset many students. "I think it worked out better this way," commented Iunior Spon- sor Mrs. Heintschel. Iunior 16 Good TimeslPowder Puff Shelly Hopkins said, "I understand why they changed the rule but, cou1dn't they find a different way? I think most of the participants would have been willing to change their names if asked to do so." Also, Elsik elected their first powder puff king. The winning king, Robert Raney said, "I'm glad that people at this school would pay for votes to elect me." Senior Sponsor Mrs. Harris explained, "The purpose of having a king was to generate interest in the game and to help the Senior Class raise more money." The game's outstanding player, Senior Iolanda Iones, made a 76 yard touchdown run on a kickoff return, the longest in powder puff history. Although the final score ended up 48-24, the junior team took the defeat well. Junior Coach Rusty Skinner summed up the team's feelings, "I feel sorry for the juniors next year." By Rae Rabe, Asst. Ed. Mrs. Raney, Robert's escort for the evening, takes pride in that her son was the first powder puff king. Photo by S.

The Winter Wonder- land Dance proved to be a huge success in comparison to dances of the past. "This was the most successful dance money-wise we've ever had," said Revellier Sponsor Mrs. Martin. "The photographer was good, there were lots of people and the music was energetic." Though 15 days shy of Christmas, the holiday spirit prevailed. Red and green lights strung through the trees, tinsel and streamers hung everywhere to bring Christmas to Elsik's South Cafeteria on December 10th. Although the other decorations were predominant, the most looked for decoration was of course, the mistletoe. The highlight of the evening transpired with the an- nouncement of the Christmas Court. Seniors Penny Vezos and Trevor Dodd received the honor of being selected King and Queen. The Iunior Court con- sisted of Nora Wilkerson and Tim Moore, while Sophomores Iemmina Beltran and Dale Smith took the honors for their class. Assistant Principal Mrs. Tooke said, "I don't like the music at all but it's nice to see all the kids dress up. The Revelliers did a great job!"

Lackey Hurricane Alicia devastated not only Houston but many other coastal cities as well.

Elsik Read "Three Million Secondary School Children Are Victims of Crime Each Month," "Van- dalism Mainly in Textbooks," "Rea an Tries To Solve Problems Of Discipline In Schools," all newspaper headlines and all the negative aspects of education. Yet, students and administrators have also focused on the positive points of people, rather than just academics and media criticism. Students' opinions mattered, and those with problems of coping with everyday classroom situations received help. Al Hook, the new super- intendent of schools, initiated the Student Advisory Board Council. The first meeting on February 2 brought 12 students from Elsik and Hastings together to discuss the major concerns and problems of the high schools. At the top of the list, traffic, parking, and the security of vehicles. Because High Star and the parking lots 24 Good TimeslEducation Coach Ward gets into another chemistry discussion before the lunch bell rings and he runs for the cafeteria line- Photo by S.

Perot j were no longer able to accommodate school traffic, two solutions arose at the meeting: CID limiting student drivers to juniors and seniors and 12D a security program furnished by the sale and issuance of parking stickers. Student smoking, dress codes, and final exemptions also took priority over alternate concerns. Patroling the bath- rooms, lengthening mini skirts and final exams as learning experiences were just a few answers. The original council met the first Thursday of each month and consisted of NHS President Tim Culbertson, Student Congress President Pat Regan, Senior Class President Michelle Espinosa, Rampage staffer Audra Sanchez, Ramblings Editor Misty Bogle, and Photographer Randy Law. The Hastings delegation con- sisted of Denise Wyant, Ianice Reeves, David MacDonald, Sally Delean, Karin Brown, and Art Aguirre. Another spotlighted program for students is the ISC. Although the ISC program was created in 1976, only since '82, when Mrs. Brown took over as principal were these beach houses viewed as positive opportunities for troubled students. "Basically what we try to do here is help students make changes by learning alternate ways of coping with a situation. This is done through counseling and a leveled behavior management system," explained Principal Brown. "Students are put into a tightly structured plan. The rules here are the same as in regular school, but are more strict and enforced more." ISC has been a successful program because a student is completely removed from the usual hustle and bustle of the everyday classroom and is placed in an isolated setting until he! she can copewith regular school again. As Tony Hurtado from Southern Mountain High School stated, "You shouldn't ship disruptive kids out . . . for the whole year. They should be back in the regular classes as soon 4 possible." The big controversy co1 cerning changes and ir provements in Texas publ schools was the creation of tl Select Committee on Publ Education chaired by Dalla businessman H. Ross Perc The committee recommends lengthening the school dz consisting of six hours 4 academics and extracurricula periods for two hours after tl first six hours.

The Adams Mark Hotel, in the Grand Ball Room on May 5, catered to this glamorous event, to a group of approximately 640. "Seeing and dancing with all of my friends was great," said Senior Darlene Reidenbach. The decorations for each table consisted of top-hats with helium balloons attached, name 26 Good Times!Prom cards, garders, and programs. Various types of music such as country, new wave, disco, and rock were furnished by the D.I. from Fantasy Unlimited instead of the traditional band. Due to an under-sized dance floor everyone found difficulty in being able to move freely. This was the first year for hors d'oeuvres instead of a dinner at the table. The menu consisted of roast beef, turkey, mushrooms, chocolate mousse, cheese cake, and apple strudel. "Having a buffet is better than having a sit down dinner. It is cheaper, offers a wider variety of dishes, and less food is wasted," stated Senior Kim Eitze. "The 1984 Senior Class was fantastic during the prom. It seemed that everyone enjoyed the music, food, and fun!" revealed Senior Class Sponsor Mrs. Harris.

Many weeks were spent preparing for the prom. Some girls started months before hunting for the right dress. Senior Vicky Wimpy exclaimed, "Having to find a dress was a lot of trouble because this year there were not too many pretty ones and every store in Houston had the same thing." The guys didn't have quite as much trouble. They just had to wait to find out the color of their date's dress. According to Senior Ricky Farias, "Picking up your tux before prom can be a real hassle, expecially when you don't get what you ordered." "I found it Very frustrating having to go back to Tux-N-Tails thirty minutes before I'm ready to leave, because they forgot the button for my shirt," com- mented Senior Eddie English.

After four years of begging, We've finally made it and why? To go to school for four to six more years . . . seems ironic, but oh well, that's life," stated Senior Todd Herring. Many plan to continue their education at college, while others plan to go straight into the business world. Texas A8:M, Southwest Texas, Stephen F. Austin, U of H., and The University of Texas were the most popular colleges chosen to attend next fall. "Graduation for me has been a mixture of emotions. I'm excited about going away to UT but, I'm really going to miss everyone," exclaimed Senior Beth Gillam. Seniors Lynne McLaren, Kay Martz and Sandy Lawrence gave a bash to close up the end of the year. "I have enjoyed it. It's been the very busiest year of my life.

Stephanie Guthrie revealed, "A student who is in their last year of high school and excited about going to college." Troy Beardon explained, "A senior is someone who can boss around under- classmen." One can see how special a senior is through the many privileges and events that are given to them each year. The most important of these events is the long-awaited Senior Prom." The Seniors started the year off with 57,000 in the treasury. They did an incredible job of raising 56,000 in just one semester. This made their total earnings at the middle of the year, S13,000! Some of the ways the seniors earned money so quickly was selling programs at football games, sponsoring the Homecom- ing Dance, selling Powder Puff ticket and shirts, selling Christmas ornaments, and sell- ing those mouth-watering doughnuts and kolaches every morning. The senior's goal this 34 Personalities! Seniors year stands as 5B18,000, requiring hard work and effort from the officers and homeroom repre- sentatives. "The energy and enthusiasm by the senior officers and homeroom representatives must have paid off. Our earnings speak for themse1ves!" ex- claimed Senior Sponsor Gina Evoritt.

"I was able to choose A8:M through many of our school's resources such as College Night and various catalogs," claims Angy Nagy. "The students scores on their admission tests also have a large influence on a senior's decision of what school he or she will attend," replied Counselor Charlene Baker.

"It symbolizes the end of high school and the beginning of your adult life." stated Senior Iennly Stinneford. W at will I do when I get out of school? Seniors top choices to solve the ost-graduation problem quicklly became work, college, or "being a bum". High school will be nothing but a fond memory for some, maybe not so fond for others, but the amount of academic know- ledge aciuired through their years of igh school will stay with them forever, hopefully. Several college preparatory classes are availab e during a student's senior year.

Although the work is tiring and Senior Anne McHugh felt she could "burn every copy of Return of the Native I can find," the class proved to be invaluable. "I learned a lot about writing essays and how to do a better research paper," said Senior Linda Cruz. Government required stu- dents to find out about how American politics work, not to mention illing out a voter registration card. Economics included a project that allowed seniors to finally understand the ways the stock market works. The seniors will leave with an awareness that will guide them throu hout which ever path they taie.

Law Mr. and Miss Elsik High School ' "I've always tried to get to know and take an interest in each person I've met at Elsik," was the explanation jennifer West gave when she was chosen Miss Elsik High School. jennifer has been a Revellier all four years and was Co-Captain her senior year. She was also elected Revellier Sweetheart her freshman year, and Homecoming Queen her senior year. One thought she would like to leave to the underclassmen is, "Make good grades, you don't realize the importance of them until you're a senior trying to get into college." Being involved in many different activities at school, Iennifer has been a great asset. ' As soon as Sammy heard he had won he exclaimed, "I was proud that my peers thought so much of me." It is no wonder that he was chosen Mr. Elsik High School in view of his many athletic achievements and his loyalty toward the Senior Class. Sammy plans to attend Texas AEM on a football scholarship where he will surely be a success. Sammy has been looked up to respectfully by his classmates for years, a close teammate of his, Mike Montgomery, compliments him saying, "Sammy really adds a lot of motivation to our team. Seeing all of his achievements only makes us strive for more." Most Humorous ' One senior girl fills the quiet halls of Elsik with laughter. Senior Ienny Stinneford was chosen as that girl. "I didn't think I would win," explained jenny. While working at Target, Ienny manages to spend time at the beach and running track.

Football seemed to stand out the most in Sammy's athletic career receiving awards such as All-District, All-Greater Houston, All-State, and All-American. Attending A8tM with a full scholarship, football will continue to be a sure part of Sammy's life.

Their 11th grade year meant only two years until they had to have made a decision about college and careers. When 610 11th graders started feeling pressure about the future, the work also got harder. They had to work harder to get accepted to the college of their hopes. "Going to college is going to help you in the long run. If you study now, it will help you in college," explained Leslie Lawless. Peter White comments, "If you don't get serious now, major colleges may not accept you." Shelly Thibodeaux said, "I want to go into business because there are so many branches offered." "Hopefully, I can make a career out of playing basketball," responded Tom Luce.

Photo by B. Roy Karin prepares to do battle. Photo by B. Roy. Swording It Gut En Garde is a word associated with fencing, but not many people know a lot about it. An exception to that rule is Sophomore Karin Roy. Busy fencing since the age of 14, Karin now ranks 7th in the Southwest and has been asked to participate in the 1984 Olympics. Fencing can be a dangerous sport, as the world champion last year was killed. Much precision is required because the object of the game is to make five touches in six minutes. In order for a director to tell that a touch has been made, a small electrical cord is hooked to the sword. When it touches the opponent a light flashes. Karin has serious thoughts about her future. "I am eligible for a 4-year scholarship to Princeton University. But," she exclaimed, "I'm afraid I might fail if I do go there." Karin chose to go into fencing because "nobody else does it! I tell myself to do the best I can and not be scared." SophomoreslPersonalities 81 Sophomores Working . 'waxy . ' X , L S!!

A J f P Ms. Hogshead Leads Teachers and Students 5 Beryl Hogshead, French teacher, was chosen president of the Alief Education Association. A.E.A. is the local teachers organization which belongs to the Texas State Teachers As- sociation. She has been a member for seven years and an active member for three years. Ms. Hogshead has been divorced for seven years and has two grown children. Her daughter, Elizabeth, graduated from Texas A8:M University and is now teaching the hand- icapped. She also has a 96 Learning!Special Feature twenty-one year old son who is in his junior year at Stephen F. Austin University. Besides being actively involved in A.E.A. and in teaching, Beryl Hogshead finds the time to travel extensively. Her most recent trip was one to Senegal, Africa. She Went the summer of '82 for one Week to attend a convention for the American Association of Teachers of French. During the summer of '81, she went to the Negev Desert in Israel to help excavate a tel Cdirt moundj called Tel Halif. Another exciting trip was one to Belfort, France located near Germany. Since Ms. Hogshead uses French as a second language, she was invited to become an exchange student and spend the summer in Belfort with a French family. She believes that, "a person who has not traveled, is just not a well-educated nor a well- rounded person." Being the president of A.E.A., Ms. Hogshead has several responsibilities. She must keep Alief teachers and the school board informed of any problg or news in the teach profession. There are mont meetings which are held different schools through Alief. "The purpose of meetings is to raise the leve educational concern by gett teachers and residents l volved," stated Ms. Hogshe She also said, "teachers neec be actively involved in tl professional lives in order raise the level of professional: in teaching." By Ericka If She Has Love and Dedication aving a job dealing with an assortment of pressing 'ies with administrators, hers, and students, took leone with dedication and e for education. Marilyn imp was hired seven years l when Elsik grew large 'ugh to require a full time endance Clerk. She moved tn the attendance office to vkkeeper and then, to her Erent position, as Mrs. pling's secretary in the North House. Mrs. Crump not only had to type letters, master schedules, make copies and other sec- retarial duties but also guide students and teachers and answer their many questions. She filed an enormous amount of mail, and kept up with teachers to make sure that substitutes were where they needed to be. Math teacher Betsy Lancaster said, "She's nice to us." Iournalism adviser Karen Ritter commented, "The jour- nalism department could not have survived without Mrs. Crump's help." Along with this busy schedule, Mrs. Crump and her husband LeRoy, AISD Athletic Director, spent time together in between each of their busy schedules. Her oldest daughter Sheryl was a Sophomore at Hastings and was active in volleyball and golf. Her youngest daughter Carol, who also played volleyball, attended Holub Middle School. As a native Houstonian, Mrs. Crump majored in Business and minored in History at Howard Payne College in Brownwood, Texas and received her B.S. Degree in Secretarial Science. Mrs. Crump really loves her job and, according to Mrs. Keeling, does an outstanding one.

Lackey Special FeaturelLearning 97 English Strives for Excellence Who has the largest department with as many as 29 staff members? The English Department does with over half of these teachers having earned their Master's degree in English. This made them "very qualified as they work very hard for long hours," described Department Chairperson Kay Moore. The curriculum consisted of basically the same elements as the year before. Freshmen worked on paragraph writings and grammar along with Antigone and Romeo andfuliet. Sophomores also studied paragraph writing, mythology, All Quiet on the Western Front, fulius Caesar and Animal Farm. The juniors' multi-paragraph research papers and American Literature added to their study of The Scarlet Letter and Huckleberry Finn. Seniors' paragraph writings and research papers helped them to "become more oriented toward the world of work," stated Mrs. Moore. A dramatized version of Ulysses Return to Itheca After the Trojan War helped Mrs. Brown's sophomores to ease the end of the first semester. "The students worked hard, had lots of fun, and everything was just great," said Mrs. Brown. The teachers spent their summer working on curriculum to fit the new standards requiring four years of English instead of the present three and a half year requirement. The English as a Second Language CESLJ program lead by Mrs. Burns has really helped many students of Hispanic, Vietnamese, and other cultures to learn despite the fact that they cannot speak fluent English. This class is of special im- portance because the language and cultural barriers of many bright students prevent or hinder them from commu- nicating their ideas and skills in English.

"Learning the anatomy of a cat is required for those students in Advanced Biology courses in college, "said biology teacher Sandy Lee. Physics students went to NASA December 14 as a "special" field trip. This trip was different because new events were added to the ordinary public tours. Students were able to see the Zero Gravity Simulator, a lecture on space suits, a tour of a Space Shuttle, and a tour of the Skylab. A Scientists use these satellites for communication purposes. The satellite is 22,000 miles out in space and the shuttle is not designed to go out that far. "Because the special tour items were added to the trip, I thought the students were more exhilerated than those of years before," said physics teacher lim Burns. "I thought the Zero Gravity Room was the most exciting part of the trip. It was weird seeing people float around like bal- loons", said Senior Todd Herring. Senior Stan Hyun added, "I thought the trip was fun. The Space Shuttle was most interesting to me even though it was not the actual shuttle used in space."

Ms. Graessle believes that "If students see that I'm enjoying teaching, then lots of times it rubs off on them and they really get involved." In Alief, seniors are required to have a one semester Government class and a one semester Economics class. If Ms. Graessle were allowed to make a change in her courses, she would like to have a year long government class. She claims, "In one semester We really only scratch the surface of a student's potential in Govern- ment." Ms. Graessle keeps her students interest by having a class simulation of a mock congress where the class participates in a meeting of congress with majority party leaders, clerks, and speakers of the house. Her class discussions are also appreciated by her students. Senior Linda Cruz stated, "She teaches us on an adult level and really makes us understand how the government works."

As unemployment rates increased, the need for a stronger business background has too. Many of the surrounding public schools are now offering a variety of business courses. One such course is Ac- counting. Accounting I teaches the recording and interpreting of financial records in any business. Accounting II deals with the administration of partnerships and corporations. "Accounting is a good field to go into because there is an un- limited demand for account- ants", states teacher Sharon Heintschel. One elective which teaches students the fundamental know- ledge of laws and crimes having to do with business is Business Law. "It helps the customers to gain an understanding of their rights when purchasing goods", said Kay Armstrong, depart- ment chairperson. "To me, typing has been an important course throughout high school. Besides learning the basics, it is a skill that I can carry on to college", stated Senior Bridget Pavlik. "Record keeping taught me how to keep a check book and figure out income tax returns," explained junior Birgitt Haderlein.

The wedding project involves planning an entire wedding from the engagement party to the reception. For the apartment project, a student is required to chose a floor plan of an apartment and must decorate it spending a fixed amount of money." Projects like these may seem boring now but Mrs. Zissman claims, "The material may not be appreciated until later when a student is looking for a home or thinking about marriage."

The band, directed by Ioe Williams and assisted by Terry Crummel, competed in many contests throughout the year. The class as a whole, competed in several divisions of U.I.L. They also performed a Christmas and Spring Concert. "Each day we rehearse for our next per- formance and try to play better than the time before," stated Director Ioe Williams. The Art Department added many new activities to their department. "Because we teach the entire spectrum of fine arts, we expect our students to have an interest in art and want to learn," said Department Head Claire Hook. Art students enjoyed many field trips as well as speakers from the Disney World Art Department. Drama students also had a new teacher this year, Carolyn Boone. Being both the drama teacher and director, Ms. Boone had high expectations of her students. "I expect my students to commit themselves to the theatre. I also wish for them to become involved and appre- ciative of the theatre at all leve1s," said Carolyn Boone. The students performed Grease, Antigone, and student One Act Plays. Each day consists of rehearsing scenes, make-up labs, technical theatre, and improvisations. The Speech Department was also led by one teacher, Carolyn DeLecour who also coached debate! forensics. There are five different speech classes - each a different course. "I try to choose daily activities that will meet the requirements while being interesting to work on at the same time," stated Carolyn DeLecour. Students participated in demonstration speeches and in-class debates. Students must also be able to organize their thoughts and ideas and to orally verbalize them. journalism classes also greeted a new teacher, Karen Ritter. Reporting classes pre- pared students for advance work in yearbook and newspaper. The Rampage only had eight reporters while the yearbook consisted of twelve staff members and five photographers. "I wish more students would get involved in journalism. They can improve their writing skills, leadership, organization, self-confidence, and their ability to interact with many different types of people. I have very high expectations for my students. Accuracy and punctuality is so very important in this field, I stress it from the start!" stated Karen Ritter.

The students were able to discover the true concept behind taking this type of class as well as fulfill college requirements. Classes have proven not only to be good for practice in speaking a desired language but also to study the cultures that go along with it. The French classes were able to see Candide by Voltaire performed at Iones Hall. The students also performed many of their own skits. They will also be competing in the National French Contest with an entry for all levels. Spanish classes attended Man of La Mancha at the Music Hall and Ballet Fulflorico at Jones Hall. "The major objective in any foreign language class is to increase the student's ability to communicate in a given language," said teacher Carolyn Mendel. German classes wrote and performed many skits throughout the year. Such skits included Charlie Brown, Star Wars, and Airplane III. The students also developed skills in communication by reading major works. Latin students learned their language by performing skits and speaking the language.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Fawcett moved to Texas when he was five years old. He started his track career as a seventh grader at Hogg Iunior High School. Being a star athlete in high school, he held nine school records, a Southwest Confer- ence record, placed fourth in a national handball champion- ship and was coached by a former olympic coach. During his junior year at Reagan High Coach Fawcett's scrapbook holds many good memories like this race he ran during his years at Rice. Photo by R.

Law School Fawcett la ed bas f P Y ' ketball and despite a handicap, he went out for football. When Leonard Fawcett was just three years old he had to have his arm amputated just below the elbow as a result of an unfortunate accident. He got his arm caught in a clothes wringer. But in no way did this incident impair Fawcett's abilities and motivations. It inspired him to strive even more to reach his goals - and that he did. Throughout high school, he set seven broad jump Kas it was called thenj records at various track meets. Three of those records stood for 13 years. Fawcett received a four year track scholarship to Rice University. All of these honors contributed to his decision to teach. In addition to coaching track and football, he assists the cross-country team and teaches physical education. Coach Faw- cett sums it up by commenting, "I think that I am dedicated enough and willing to sacrifice my time and knowledge and share them with our athletes." By Michelle Hahn T Zlflilc' rw-.

Counselor Iohn Hall explained Vocational Education as "providing exploratory ac- tivities and learning experiences that contribute to the de- velopment of work and work related responsibilities." There are several work pro- grams to choose from. Dis- tributive Education was created for students who are interested in wholesaling and service selling jobs. The course counts as an elective credit and each student must work at least 15 hours a week. Vice President Senior Ioe Rosa has really enjoyed the past years in DECA. He claims, "it has really taught me a lot about responsibility and the working world." For those students who are interested in the more advanced scientific vocations, there is a new course called Vocational Printing. Teacher Henry Livingston explained "Printing is a very open field with a lot of opportunities in the outside world." Running a printing press isn't the only skill learr in this class. Layout and desi! composition, paper cuttii typesetting and photograp and enlarging are just a few the studies offered.

Although the class was designed to help freshmen with their study habits, there were many differing views on the class. Some students felt that it helped them while others thought it a waste of their time. Sophomore Michelle Williams, who had the class as a freshman, said, "It was okay but I already knew everything." Sophomore Todd Lavergne felt that, "It was boring but it helped me with my study habits."

Also, it is an educational experience with great opportuntiesf' The majority of students don't understand how Physical Science and Biology can help a student in the future. Some students simply hate Science. Well, there is a group of teenagers right here at Elsik who feel differently and they are in the Science Club. Science Club started off their year with the Bellaire High School Math!Science Tournament. In October, they sold Halloween Treats. The club also participated in the tournament at the High School of Health Professions. For the first time, Elsik sponsored their Math X Sci- ence Tournament in which 25 High Schools and five Middle Schools participated. "Each student entering a contest must take a test in different fields of science or math and the student with the highest score wins", said sponsor Ms. Cann. President Richard Husseini commented, "ln the past, the things we did in Science Club were not significant, but this year has been the best. We have more members doing more things that deals with science such as tournaments and field trips". "Being in the Science Club is hard work because there is practicing for tournaments after school. Science Club is not like having an extra science class, it is more fun and challenging," says Vice- President Carol Curren.

"I feel mathematics will play a ljor role in most of our lives in future. Careers which we ll pursue will probably center ound it, thus it should be acouraged that all students uld take as much math as y can in high school. Plus, if think about it, math can tnetimes be fun as well as ulating," commented ior Maria Kuo.

Freshman David Tsai and Sophomore joel Parker placed respectively in the U.I.L. Number Sense test at Westchester High School. "Math will play a very important role in my career. After attending college, I plan to pursue a career in Aeronautics. The further I go in math, the better I will be at my career," revealed Sophomore Dennis Weimer. "I joined Math Club because I enjoy math and the competition. It's a fun and exhilerating experience," said Freshman David Tsai. "Computers allow students to develop their creativity and have often rekindled the uninterested student's imag- ination," commented Computer Club Sponsor Mrs. Lewis. Computer programming de- mands thinking in logical ways, step by step, until the pattern is complete. Such logical thinking carries over into school work and study skills. Computer programming also requires patience. Once patience is developed it can help with studying and learning in school. The Computer Club helps familiarize students with the computer systems and available software such as Apple-Writer and Visi-Calc. The Computer Club attended some Math tournaments which gave computer tests. At the Westbury tournament, Steven Tsai placed 3rd, Vivek Pai 5th, and Dennis Weimer 7th in the computer test. "Computers are an interest to me because they can store and generate great qualities of information. I feel that this great access to information will increase my knowledge and help me succeed in the world of business and life itself," remarked Senior Bryan Ray- burn.

With her help and support, in November the Drama Club performed their winter play Grease, followed by a cast party at Sophomore Chris Lundquist's house. "Grease was the kind of show people wanted to see, because it related directly to the audience," Chris Lundquist explains. Then they had another presentation in the spring, Antigone. Senior Brian Rives exclaims, "Antigone brought us all closer together." Vice Pres- ident Susie Gatien said, "I believe it has made everyone in the cast appreciate the moments of humanity." General after school meetings were held to discuss produ- ctions, upcoming events, and fund raising for scholarships and the banquet. "Drama allows me to understand people and their emotions that I would not otherwise be able to relate to," revealed Iunior Chris Everett. With lots of hard work drama students went on to regionals in the One-Act Play contest at San Iacinto Iunior College for U.I.L. competition. Their efforts were rewarded by winning fourth place, alternate to state. Five thespians were honored by lettering in drama also.

Next year Main Events will be limited to one field trip per semester. It is to be held in the Houston area on weekends or other times when there is no school. This rule was made because the Board of Education feels that many school students are in too many extra-curricular activities. "In my view, it seems that the administrators are putting any athletic sport above something as educational as Main Events," said Mrs. Hogshead. Club member, Lora Holsopple comments, "It's a shame Main Events is allowed only two trips a year because the majority of the students here don't have the chance to see any type of plays and in Main Events one gets to visit a majority of the dramas that come to the Houston area."

For some, the year was full of problems and changes which turned into failures or successes. It was the dreaded year - 1984. The number of single parent families was on the rise while teenage suicide rates continued to climb. It was a controversial year for schools filled with educational issues. But the year was also filled with fun. There were new fads and fashions, teen nightclubs and breakdancing. The concept of the Rambler Mini Magazine was formed in order to bring more current events information into the yearbook. By having this section, it is hoped that you will be able to look back at this book and remember the events which were part of your preparation for the years ahead. By Rae Rabe, Asst.

Since the immigration of Asians to the U.S. has increased greatly, many worried American educators and parents look enviously to the East. Dr. Harold Stevenson,a professor of child psy- chology at the University of Michigan, says that in a competative world such as ours, we have a right to be worried. The average high school graduate in China and Iapan has a much better understanding of physics and math than his American counterpart. Stevenson says this affects the quality of the product each produces. The Chin- ese or Japanese worker is more likely to understand the need for precision and will strive to accomplish excellence more often than the American worker. Across the U.S., school officials see Asian-Amer- icans topping honor rolls of some of the country's highly regarded schools. The same is true for Alief. Nevertheless, achieve- ment can be a source of pain as well as pride to Asian-American students. Unlike their admirers, these students seldom take their success for granted. There is a heavy sense of obligation not to do anything that is embarrassing to the family. This is called "face." Even students of average ability attempt to over achieve at all costs. According to Senior Don Quach who came from Vietnam nine years ago, "there is an incentive to do extremely well in Vietnam schools. You can really feel 152 RamblerlAsian Students the pressure, a parental as well as community pres- sure." Parental .expecta- tions can be a mixed blessing. They set such high standards that some children fall apart if they cannot maintain an A- average. Such single- mindedness can cause social problems for these young people trying to adjust to a new culture. The high motivation Asians share with other immigrants is the drive to establish themselves, once they reach the U.S. Many Seniors Jasmin llanga and Vu Tran listen closely to instructions during tl British Literature class. .

As elsewhere in the U.S., they are out-performing Americans. parents ot these students do not have money or property. The only thing they can give their children is the best available opportunity to achieve their potential- education. The in- ternational language of math and science also allows children still strug- gling with English to achieve in those field faster. Parents often tend to nudge their children into careers that seem to have no political context because of the painful and frightening memories of social activism in their native countries. The U.S. still believes that education is the path to attainment, but citizens are unwilling to pay more taxes or to upgrade the educational profession. American teachers receive far less respect than Asian. Americans tend to cat- egorize certain children at a very young age as having ability levels or handicaps. According to Stevenson, there is no educational advantage to segregating children by their academic skills. When a child starts making mistakes in the U.S., many educators deduce failure. In Iapan, errors are regarded as one of the best learning tools. In many student si- tuations, there is no parent supervision, support, or real belief in homework, and a lack of parent! teacher communication. As one of Elsik's teachers questioned, "How can we conduct class when half the students do not do their homework? This is the responsibility of the parent and the student." In Iapan and China, children take message booklets back and forth to home and school. The school day is longer, and the week is five and a half days, but teaching time is the same. Teachers and students also have more breaks. In higher education, the U.S. still excels, but only for the cream of the crop. Photo by R.

One student from each high school in Congress- man Archeris district was selected on the basis of an essay on what a trip to Washington, D. C. would mean to them. A panel of teachers chose four Win- ners from the contestants' essays. Tracie left Houston Saturday, March 24, and returned from Washing- ton a Week later. By Tracie Rutherford Being a part of the Bill Archer Intern Program was about the most exciting and fulfilling activity that I have every been involved in. Every aspect of the trip was dedicated to learning more about our nation's gov- ernment, its functions and the people involed in it. Due to the lack of knowledge about our government, many people are apt to criticize and ridicule politics, but the one right that is more often taken for granted in this country is freedom. With- out the freedom we as citizens of the U.S. can Goldwater, Secretary of Defense Casper Wein- berger, and the Honorable Sandra Day O'Connor, and other senators and rep- resentatives, we obtained many different viewpoints on different subjects, but all were very sincere and diligent people. It was an honor to be able to share a time with each of these persons, discussing issues that directly affect the people of America. After visiting the Supreme Court, the Pentagon, the Senate, the House of Representatives, and the Smithsonian Institution, I feel America has so many ,, V obtain, we would lose our purpose as a nation. This was the main point that many of the legislators and politicians emphasized. I believe that our gov- ernment is dedicated to the betterment of the citizens' lives, even though this is not always an easy task. By meeting such people as Mr. Barry things to be proud of.

That was t sep 1269 "The suicide rate among teenage Americans has tripled in the last twenty years. Suicide is the third leading cause of death amongournations'syouth. The five to ten thousand teenage deaths annually signal a problem of epi- demic proportions." These were just a few of the terrifying statements printed by the papers. The Houston Post published true-life accounts of sui- cidal teens throughout the year. This story was one of the more powerful ones. Beth Knot her real namel looks like a modern day Cinderella, with long blond hair, expressive eyes, and a slim 14 year old figure. But today, she sounds like a very old woman. Beth is a resident of West Oaks Hospital. She takes a seat in the hospita1's conference room and tells her story in hopes that somebody something about teenage suicide. She begins timidly. When she was little, she says, her father used to drink, and beat up her mother. "It always went on, before I was even born." Along with Beth and her parents lived her mother's six brothers and sisters. "My mom wasn't realty available for me. I felt orgotten about." When Beth was six, her parents separated, and she and her mother Wound up in a shelter for battered women. About a month after the split, her mother moved in with a new boyfriend. "I liked him," Beth says, "but I resented him for taking my dad's place." Within the year, Beth's mom was married and pregnant. "She used to call me her best friend," Beth re- members. "My mom was a weak person. I took the attitude that I had to be strong." Beth pauses to think. "That's probably when my problems started. I was acting so beginning of an incestuo relationship that lasted I three miserable yea Beth's straight A grad became a thing of the pa "I had a lot of anger - a E of stuff I was feeling bu wasn't saying." One day Beth took electric knife from t kitchen and cut herself I the leg. "I couldn't s verbally how hurt I felt thought maybe a physiw hurt would be better th an emotional one.

For mc than a year, Beth lived in assortment of institutioi staffed by a variety therapists who tried 154 Rambler help her talk about the incest. "All I would do is say yes or no," she says. Beth felt the three years of sexual abuse were her fault. I-Ier stepfather had denied everything. Her mother accused her of lying. "My mother be- lieved him over me. And I felt betrayed. I couldn't ever put into words how "Suicide is the third leading cause of death among our nation's youth. much that hurt my feelings." So she expressed herself in other ways. On different occasions she drank fingernail polish remover. She slashed her wrists, and once she broke pencil lead into the Wound. "I couldn't say how hurt I ral stude ts a e treated at the Belle Park Hospital for personal as well as drug Photo by R. Law felt so fthe suicide at- temptsj were my way to show it." Once Beth and a friend CHI don't know why I call her a friend"J ate glass together. "At the time I thought I would be better off dead." Beth was shifted from child Welfare facilities to hospitals and psychiatric units back to child Welfare. When she was twelve, almost thirteen, she began experimenting with drugs. She started dating, and she engaged in sexual re- lationships, "just to get back at Mom." She injected fingernail polish into her veins, in addition to drink- ing the stuff. That, finally, was the act that landed her in West Oaks twenty months ago. "It took me a long time to open up once I got here," Beth says. "But eventually I did. For the first time in my life I expressed anger." Beth hasn't forgotten her past, and occasionally she still has problems coping. "But now, I can talk about it. I used to feel alone and not cared about, but there are people now to listen. Therapy has helped me tremendously." Tears well up in Beth's eyes, then she laughs self-consciously. "It makes me sad to think how I used to be." When asked, Beth offers some advise to parents with troubled kids. "Listen to them instead of yelling at them, try to find out what the problem is. Show them you care. If all else fails, get psychiatric help. Any advice to depressed teens? "Open up, and share your feelings with others. Talk - somebody else will understand." "You know, I used to pretend I was too big to cry, now I cry all the time. Now when I'm upset, everybody knows it." Stress, family problems, and insecure feelings about oneself have always been related to suicide. Several Elsik students have been "treated," many for attempted suicide. The recently built Belle Park Hospital has had positive results as a housing and theraputic center. Senior stress has also been a major issue. One senior related her feelings, "The thing is, as quickly as it comes across my mind, Csuicidel, I realize it is really a stupid thing - it's like a cop out. I know that my problems I'm dealing with, whether they arise from school or home, may not seem bad to others, but for me they are traumatic. This has probably been my highest pressure year. It's the year you want to make your mark on the school, so people will remember you. But sometimes suicide looks like the only way out: away from the nagging parents, teachers, and the whole world in general. As bad as things seem now, if this is the worst my life ever gets, I'll be a lucky person. IfI can kick my way through this, I can do anything."

This unique way of dancing caught . on like fire throughout the nation. The first question that most people seemed to ask was: "Where did these kids who are doing all these weird and in- credible movements learn to dance like that?" Well, breakdancing originated with the superstar james Brown, and the dance was the 'Good Foot'. The Hustle was the big dance style of the day. But when he performed his hit Get on the Good Foot, he did a high energy, acrobatic-like dance that was appropriately known as the Good Foot. Soon dance battles became a junior john Santos carefully demonstrates the floor rock knowing how dangerous it is. Photo by R.

Micheal Jackson, Shields and Yarnell, and jeffrey Daniels were some other contributors to the dif- ferent styles of break- dancing. So at the end of 1983 and early 1984, for reasons unknown, after having been around for years, breakdancing be- came a dance craze. e -8 Breakdancing was be- ing used in many videos, in luenced professional dancers, and movies were being made, such as Breakin. Many people came to believe that this style of dance really got popular after the movie Flashdance. Breakdance battles played an important part in it's development.

Cheer- leading camp, held the first week in August at Sam Houston State University, presents a new challenge every year. Here the girls concentrated on learning new cheers, chants, pyramids, and many new ideas. Each day Elsik, along with 100 other squads, competed with five other squads for the best squad at camp. Elsik Won runner-up. The cheerleaders competed in the Ioske's Competition and were chosen as one of the top ten 162 Participation! Cheerleaders squads in the Houston and surrounding area. They also attended the Kingwood Varsity Competition and were awarded first place. "This is the best squad Elsik High has ever had or seen in my estimation," said Mrs. Oberthier. The only sophomore on the squad, Lisa Schultz, describes "At first, I didn't know if I would fit in with the squad and I was always quiet and just trying to be like them. But now I am myself and I have a lot of fun! I feel very lucky to be on the squad." "I love cheerleading, and I would be lost Without it!"lsaid Junior Iulie Iohnson.

After the officers returned from camp, Miss Drill Team U.S.A. came and spent a week teaching the girls proper ways of stretching and a dance to the theme song from the movie Staying Alive. "Since I have been a Revellier, I have learned to be very 164 Participation!Revelliers disciplined, and I have also learned to budget what little time I have in such a busy schedule," said Lieutenant Tracie Rutherford. Numerous hours were spent practicing for camp, compe- tition, football, and basketball games. During the summer, practices were held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and during school they practiced from 1:30 to 5 p.m. everyday. "All four years of practice have been really tough but like they always say, 'Practice makes perfect'. Even though I may goof around and not want to practice somedays, I think all of it was well worth it and the outcome of it all was usually terrific," said Senior Kelly Luman. "We are going to a new competition in San Antonio. We will be competiting with very strong drill teams all over Texas and we should be very competitive," stated Mrs. Martin.

"Being in rifles was as extra chance to learn something new. It had its privileges but there were also draw backs," stated Senior Deidra Chema. Four rifles and fifteen flags make up the color guard and auxiliary units in the band. Usually they frame the total picture on the field, but at times, they become the center of attention. The group also attended a summer camp with the drum major for one week. Each day basic fundamentals, new moves, and routines are learned. This totaled up to about fifty hours of work. "I joined the flag corps in or'der to learn a new ability and felt that the flags would add a new dimension to our band," explained Senior Susan House. In the first part of marching season, the guard worked up two or three numbers for each show, changing each couple of weeks. Each drill was made up, taught, changed, rechanged, and perfected as much as possible. Each year the band receives financial support from the parent band booster club. "During the school year, several fund-raising events such as pizza sales and a chili supper are held to raise finances for those band activities which are not funded by the school district. Parents also serve as chaperones whenever the band as . travels to away games or contests and provide assista whenever possible to the b. directors," stated Presid Sandy Blacksher. Officers were Presidents l and Sandy Blacksher, V Presidents Chuck and Mulford, Secretaries Ralf 4 Carleen Brehm, and Ways 1 Means Chairmen Paul and Ir Zermeno. "Our goals in the band for senior year are to perform to best of our ability. After mak straight 1's in U.I.L. March Contest this year, we know t we have the capability to ful our goal," Iuniors Kathy IN son, Rachel Hardaway and Grantham agreed.

Senior lim Woodfin explains, "Sports is more than just playing the game, it's meeting and becom- ing involved with the people you play against. It is something that I was very proud to be a part of. Over 1000 students from all eight schools were involved in the annual District Dance in December. It was GSL's only fundraiser. Four to five students represented each school. Meet- ings were held at one of the participating schools, three times yearly. "At the meetings, we discussed procedures for pre-game activities, planned the district dance, and discussed ways to promote good sportsmanship," says sponsor, Mrs. Thornton. 11 M. Steele, J.

Ramrods helped with scholarships, fund-raising, run- ning concession stands, and putting together two banquets. A watermelon social kicked-off the beginning of the football season. By acknowl- edging coaches and players of all sports, and introducing them to the parents on Parent Night, they aided in the establishment of strong parent involvement. The family members raised money for the Football Banquet, Spring Banquet, cheerleaders, training room, equipment, and any scholarships that weren't purchased by the school.

Their year started off with days of practicing which takes a lot of time and hard work. During football season they helped in stadium clean-up. They participated in the Middle School Speech Festival, which is a speech tournament put on by the middle school students and judged by high school students. They also had a bake sale. NFL has entered numerous speech tournaments such as the Westchester Tournament, Robert E. Lee Speech Tournament, Kashmere Speech Tournament, Clear Lake Speech Tournament, Westbury Speech Tournament, and the Memorial Speech Tournament. The Spring Branch Student Congress is a speech tournament in which the students are members of the Congress and discuss and debate the pros and cons of politics and other topics. The members have received numerous individual awards for Debate, Prose Inter- pretation, Poetry Interpretation, Extemporaneous Speaking, Dramatic and Humorous In- terpretation, and Original Oratory. At the Memorial Speech Tournament Eric Hudson won 4th place in Prose Interpretation. Gary Loss was a quarter finalist in Lincoln- Douglas debate. Missy Brown and Scott McFarlane were Semi-finalists in Extempo- raneous Speaking, and Penni Siemens was a Semi-finalist in Poetry Interpretation. "Speech Club enchances your communication skills by helping you deal more with your problems and people around you, because everyone needs and uses communication in everyday life. It plays an important role," replied Gary Loss. Club member Ginger Winstead comments, "Speech Club has taught me how to deal with and talk to people, it has brought me out of my shyness". Mrs. DeLecour commented, "I am really proud of my group of kids because they are trying out new things for the first time and have really been successful at it. They are a dedicated group of kids".

Not until 1983 did Voices find a new sponsor. Mrs. Wrotenberry volunteered to take on this task. During the fall Voices planned the contests and worked on publicity. They learned how to judge literary merit and solicit material to be submitted. Then they began to select what exactly would go into the magazine. Preparation of the copy started during March and April. The 1984 Voices had 172 pages of literary and art Sophomore Chris Theofamidis enjoys amusing Senior Richard Husseini and Sophomore Darryl Orsak after a long day at the U of H Presentation.

This long process ended in May and magazine sales, along with the sale of Gold Coupon Books with NHS, contributed to their fund- raising. Voices entered the Texas High School Press Association Con- test where they were awarded 6th place in State and have plans to enter the Scholastic Compe- tition and the new NCTE competition in the future. Voices held Weekly meetings on Mondays at 7:00 a.m. in Room N220 to "provide a showcase for the literary and artistic talent of Elsik, and to further organize the magazine," explained Mrs. Wrotenberry.

Mrs. Ritter has really helped us improve a lot," commented Ramblings Assis- tant Editor Rae Rabe. Many new things were introduced such as weekly and deadline planners, beats, coverage journals, after school nights, and the lepper list. Goals for the year included getting everyone in the yearbook, not just the "Popular People," and to give every sport, club, and class equal coverage. Inexperience caused the year to start out slow. The first semester was spent learning how to do layouts, write copy, and interview, whereas the newspaper staff was given story assignments the first week of school. There were many benefits and drawbacks of being on staff. A lot of time is involved which meant sometimes missing some other activities because of a deadline. Rampage Reporter Susan Garvin revealed, "It's a great feeling when after staying up all night writing a story, after three hours were spent v interviewing only three people, and then, turning in the story without many mistakes, and finally having it done!" "Yearbook is the only class I have that can really alter my emotions. Most of the coaches and students are very helpful. With all of the team morale and fun times we've had together it all pays off," exclaimed Iunior Lisa Baroski. Both yearbook and newspaper staffers attended two journalism conferences held at The University of Houston. Sessions were held to teach the staffs about copy writing, staff morale, choosing themes, caption writing, interviewing, and sell- ing ads. There was also a press conference held by Amanda Arnold of Channel 11. Staffers also attended the I.L.P.C. State Convention in Austin.

Publications design. The Rampage staff will never forget when: "Ahmed while selling an ad referred to "his secretary" as Karen, the first time they tried to figure out how to layout a paper and what an exacto knife was, or when Elliot surprised Mrs. Ritter with a new Gene Simmons paper weight for her desk," commented Rampage Reporter Tina Hansen.

I have had to walk up to perfect strangers Csome of whom very popular, big, scary football playersj and engageinainterviewingconver- sation as though we'd known each other for years."

PublicationslParticipation 177 Artists At Work The Art Club's new Hal- loween project, face painting, was a "total success," said Mrs. Hook, one of the club sponsors. "We raised more than S5300." This was not only a money-making project but also a chance for the Art Club to practice their skills. Many custodians and faculty con- tributed to the Halloween face paintings. Mrs. Keeling had a Snoopy painted on her face and exclaimed "it looked cute." Some other designs were stars, moons, tears, unicorns, dragons, and balloons. Art Club kept busy with various seasonal projects, making dough ornaments and pinatas. During Rodeo Season, 28 students entered their work in the Rodeo Art Contest. The judging started at Cummings Elementary School. Finalists, Nghia Chau and Ray Greene, winning "Best of Show" went on to the Astroarena to have their artwork exhibited by the Rodeo Association. Shelley Hopkins, Damian Hebert, and David Ripple had their work displayed ata downtown bank. A variety of works exhibited included sculpture, paintings, weavings, and drawings all depicting the Western theme. During October some Art Club members went to the 9th Annual Texas Renaissance Festival in Magnolia. This was just a leisure fieldtrip, but a chance for the students to observe different arts and crafts and enjoy themselves. Feasting and spirits included many different main dishes, desserts, and drinks. There was also 178 ParticipationlArt Club various games such as fencing, archery, skittles, and bocce ball. "The day was full and a tired crew arrived promptly back to the bus at the end of the day . . . everyone but, one very late student, David Barroiro. The ride home was much quieter. As I drank my ice tea to stay awake, I could feel the excitement that many tired Elsik art students had experienced during their day at the Renaissance Festival. I would get up early Saturday morning to do it all over again for them," says Ms. Graham. During second semester, the Art Club decided to make Valentine's Day extra special for someone besides close friends. They shared the day with the elderly at some nursing facilities. The Art Club made valentine cards, Wall deco- rations, and some cookies. Then it came time for them to show a little of their Elsik football spirit. They made a large "Elsik Rams" sign and hung it in the athletic complex locker room. The Art Club was larger than any of the previous clubs and included sponsors Dr. Becker, Mr. Aber, Ms. Graham, and Mrs. Hook. The goals of this club is mainly "enrichment, and to do things that are fun, that there isn't time to do in art class," says Mrs. Hook. Some students in the Art Club also want to have a career in art. At their Thursday meetings, they would plan seasonal projects and work on whatever artwork they liked. Furthermore they tied up the year welcoming anyone who isn't in arts-for fun! l Traci Prest, Melinda Lozano, Lisa Farney, Rachel Bullock, Prapatpong Pongwa and Kim Heimer eat while awaiting their final half of the day at Renaissance.

They now have 69 members. Industrial Arts Club is sponsored by Mr. Thomas, who teaches drafting, along with Mr. McKie and Mr. Gehring, who teach wood shop. "I think anyone interested in working with wood, metal or drafting, would really enjoy Industrial Arts, and it is not just for boys," commented president Kevin Cristadora.

The members learn knowledge and leadership skills in order to make our chapter the most outstanding," said President Iamil Zaman. Health Occupations Students Of America members plan and sponsor many projects such as public service activities, career exploration activities, and actual competition in job skills, leadership skills and scientific proiect displays. Social service projects in- cluded blood drives, blood pressure screening and par- ticipation in a "mock disaster" with Alief General Hospital to aid in community preparedness in case of disaster. All HOSA members become certified in Cadiopulmonary Resuscitation and help teach others this life-saving skill. Career exploration is very important in HOSA because it gives the student the op- portunity to learn the qualifications, outlook, salary, and working conditions for many different health careers to make realistic career choices. Career exploration activities include attending March of Dimes Health Career Day at Houston Baptist University, touring Baylor College of Medicine, observing actual open heart surgery at the Texas Heart Institute and having many health professionals as guest speakers. Health Occupations Educa- tion class provides basic know- led e of leadership, ethics andg citizenship. Taking tem- perature, pulse, respirations and blood pressure and a working knowledge of health and disease are some of skills learned in class. The senior students have on-the-job expe- rience in a health occupation of their choice. Three times during the year HOSA members have the opportunity to compete with other HOSA students across Texas and the U.S. This year the competition began at the Westin Oaks Hotel for area level in Ianuary. Those qualifying for State Contest went on to Fort Worth, Texas and finally to the National Contest in Orlando, Florida in Iune. "HOSA members work very hard during the year preparing themselves for con- test," said Karen Watson.

DECA Upens School Store, Contest Winners Advance to State Participation in DECA CDis- tributive Education Clubs of Americaj provides students with the opportunity to become involved in many exciting activities. Student leadership training and a chance to compete in local, state and national events in ten career areas are all designed to stimulate and motivate classroom interest and voca- tional competence. Through DECA, students also have the opportunity to participate in social functions and to meet many business leaders in the community. Sponsor Mrs. Fuchs says, "I think DECA is a good, essential program because it teaches leadership skills which every- one needs and helps develop professional skills. That's very important because of the shape the economy is in today. Most jobs ask for people with exper- ience and training and DECA DECA officers join together in front of the DE school store. l T offers all of that." To say that DECA had a busy year is an understatement. They had a successful Christmas Teacher Luncheon, Area III Career Conference and State Career Conference in San Antonio. There are many DECA ad- vantages such as first hand experience in the business World and college scholar- ships. When DECA students go to area contest they participate in activities such as Apparel and Accessories, Advertising, Food Marketing, Finance and Credit, General Merchandising, Gener- al Marketing, Service Station Retailing and Food Service. This was the first year for the DE school store. The store contained everything from gym suits to paper and pens and folders. DECA club member Karen Harbuck said, "DECA taught me leadership skills and built confidence in myself." At Area Ill Career Conference DECA was proud to have three students advance to State in San Antonio. Iohn Urbanowicz Won first place in Finance and Credit. Ioe Rosa won first place in Restaurant Marketing, and Robby Wilson also took first place in General Merchan- dising.

"In my class my students learn more than just how to fix lawnmowers and cars. I also try to help these students develope leadership skills and good sportsmanship conduct, so that when they leave high school, they will have some background experience," says Sponsor Mr. Maldonado. GMR started their year by repairing the lawnmowers of the A.I.S.D. employees. Also GMR participated in the VOCT- GMR District Contest and State Contest in San Antonio, in which they entered in Speed and Repair, Tool Identification, and repairing a Recoil Starter. Manuel Pitt says, "This is the first time GMR has entered any type of contest, and I think we have worked very hard and did very well. But next year we will do even better". "Being in GMR has been a great learning experience because I learned more about cars and other motors than I would have on my own," comments President Rick Carter.

Under the leadership of Head Coach Wes Bryant, the team practiced long, hard hours in preparing for this season. On Friday, September 2, the Mighty Rams fought their first battle against Houston Lee High School. Unfortunately the Rams walked away with a loss of nine to sixteen.

With a winning season record of nine and one, the title junior varsity became an inappropriate description. The team was led to victory with the incredible backing abilities and the awesome rushing of the team. Coach Gary Pless explained, "It is hard to single outanyoneplayer.Wefeelitwas a total team effort." For many football teams, this season meant tremendous defeat. The Houston Oilers and our own varsity football team ended their season with devasting losses, but our junior varsity worked as if they had been a team forever! Many crazy things happened to the team this year. Coach Gary Pless says nothing was more unusual than "having a time change in the schedule and arriving to the game four hours early. Then, we returned to Alief and went back to Spring Branch to play the game." Coach Pless described the least memorable game of the season. "Had we not fumbled against Spring Woods on the four yardline, we would have been ten and zero. We can still reflect on all of the wins, especially winning district! ll .

The "hoopsters" went on to a 9-5 district record. With the team's superb talent, they were sure to surpass their previous records. The team was unusually young. Seven juniors, one sophomore, and three seniors claimed the heritage of the "hoopsters." Elsik had one fellow to make lst team All-District. He was none other than junior Ieff Keene, 6-fool seven-inch center. The other "hoopsters" that made All-District were Iunior Tom Luce on 2nd team, and Senior Scott Harris, Iunior Ieff Glasgow, and Junior Robbie Iames with Honorable Men- tions. The team won third place in district competition. "N ext year we will win district," assures Coach Hartfiel. Junior Tom Luce believes in his team too, "We had a great season.

Drops to Fourth Iunior Varsity didn't quite have what it took to win this season. Several injuries and lack of teamwork were some of the reasons for their drop from 2nd to 4th in the district standings. Brock Wilson suffered from a knee injury, Troy Kite had problems with his ankle which lasted the whole season and Darryle Brown had a hip disorder. When asked why the team dropped from 2nd to 4th in district, Darryle Brown replied, "We did not come prepared for the games!" Coach Scarborough was not satisfied with the results. When asked if next year's I.V team looked like it would have a winning season, he answered with a laugh, "I hope so!" Top performers for the I.V. team were Troy Kite and Darryle Brown explained Coach Scarborough. Troy was the leader in assists, points and steals, while Darryle was the leading rebounder. Darryle also felt that EJ. Flores deserved recognition for his leadership. Darryle has a history of basketball achievement. His brother first interested him in basketball at the age of two when he put a basketball in his hands. Darryle remarked, "It's been history ever since!" He plans to make a career out of basketball, but he says, "I will have to grow about five inches in the next three years to be a real college prospect." Several of the juniors on the I.V. team will be moving up to varsity to join the remaining team members. With this combination of players, next year's team looks very positive and could possibly be a winning year for Elsik's basketball record.

The Sophomore team really lost its touch this season. They no longer held on to their lst place District rank, but dropped to 5th place. Coach Parker stated, "This team was not as team-oriented nor hungry for victory as last year's team." No change in coaching was brought about, but the quality and attitude of the players had Kirk Evans struggles to pass the ball while the Bears prevent it with a strong block. Photo by M. Spiller changed tremendously. Corey Simmons, forward-guard, felt that a lack of teamwork was the main reason for this lowered district standing. Outstanding players of the season were Steve Ernst and Curtis Larry. Steve, with his all-around hustle during games and practice, and Curtis played team ball. , of rl The team did not have it and as a result it was a tough year. Losing 8 games out of 12 provided many reasons to get motivated. Their toughest game, against Hastings, was the first game in district and pressure built-up because the Rams and the Bears are tense rivals. They had one easy win against Spring Woods with an obvious victory of 56-44. The team was not as dedicate this year as in the past. Coax Parker's method of coaching h been effective in all areas of tl sport, but the team did n respond well. Dedication ar excellence is their goal for tl future, so let's hope that ne year's team wants victory.

Girls Varsity Basketball! Competition 219 I.V. Fight For District I.V. basketball is the time to perfect abilities and prepare for varsity but still have a good time. Losing to Hastings twice and Spring Branch in overtime by 1 point, the girls lost the title of first place to their rival Hastings. Instead the girls earned the next best title, second place. Despite losing their goal of beating Hastings, the girls reached other goals that they had set. "We became friends, played together as teammates, and did not let a team get over 38 points," said Freshman Boi Benefield. There were some injuries on the I.V. this year. In one tournament game, Bizzy Deckard broke her leg and Tracy Walls broke two ribs. Coach Morrow commented, "And basketball is a non-contact sport"! The girls layed out for a couple of weeks, but were back on the court when the doc gave the okay. Sophomore Bizzy Deckard uses all her strength to catch up with her opponent. Photo by S.

Defensively were Soph- omore Stacey Champagne, Amy Armbruster, and Deborah Collier. Coach Morrow also adds Sophomore Jennifer Burton as the most improved player of the I.V. All of the girls on the I.V. this year were sophomores, besides Boi Benefield who was a freshman. These girls have great potential for varsity next year. Sophomore Melissa Arp was moved up to varsity during the play-off games. Coach Morrow stated, "With hard work, this group can really contribute to a strong varsity next year." Next year's varsity will be looking for five girls to move up to that team.

Soccer is a team game, and that fact was definitely proven by the work of the boys through their desire to win. The boys united as brothers without showing selfishness in play. This was a major contribution to the winning season of the Rams. Although teamwork is im- portant the boys felt that Coach O'Keefe was the reason they were so good. Ieff Doria commented, "He gave us great guidance and without him we would have been nothing." Praney Patel also added, "He is a great coach and friend." The goal of winning zone became a reality by defeating a tough Westchester team 5-1. Chris Adkins was the leading scorer with four goals and his brother Bryan held the Wildcats toaclose shut-outgiving up only one goal. With this win the Rams became the first team to win a berth in the district playoffs. During the playoffs the Rams had an emotional game with the Katy Tigers losing 0-3. Although the Rams never gave up, they could not ignite a successful offensive attack with five of their shots hitting the crossbar of the goal. The Katy Tigers dominated the field which erased hopes for a district championship. Nevertheless, the team had a successful season with high standards and fair play. The Rams had set a precedent for future soccer teams to equal or better.

He was raised in England, where soccer is a very popular sport. He became involved and continued to play for nine years. When asked if soccer was a part of his future, he stated boldly, "Yes!" Keith feels he did great on the team this year, but still thinks he has the potential to do even better. "Hastings was a tough game 226 CompetitionlBoys Junior Varsity Soccer for the team," explained Keith. He noticed their excellent players, good ball control, communication, and great discipline. To make up for that, they came across an easy victory, Katy High School. They won with a 3-0 score. Keith said they played excellently and had fun doing it. Isn't that the purpose of competition - excellent team- work and fun at the same time?

Rising to 2nd in zone, the girls varsity team had a fun and challenging season. Zeire Cadungog, Jeanne Fifi, and Donna Boyne all agreed that it was a rewarding experience. Coach LeRibeus is highly admired by her team. Jeanne Fifi stated, "Her method of coaching had a beneficial effect on inexperienced players." Three hours daily training except on game days, was the average amount of time spent on basic skills and endurance. Donna Boyne thought more time should have been spent on specialized skills and team- work. Outstanding players were midfielder Jeanne Fifi and forward Beatriz Escobar. Jeanne for strong defensive playing and Beatriz for skillful offensive playing helped them to succeed. Beside skill and endurance, eye-foot coordination is the most important step in soccer. All the girls deserve to be recognized for this difficult feat. The varsity team consisted of all underclassmen except for four seniors. The remaining players plan to continue playing next year, so next year's team looks very good. Their goal is to go to zone and district play-offs. With the returning players, that is very possible as Coach LeRibeus sees it.

Her coaching skills have brought many of the players up the ladder to achieve victory. She was born in Landstuhl, Germany. Tennis never became apart of her life until her college years since the local high school did not have a team. She played in college for several years and went on to coach tennis.

She really doesn't know what got her interested in coaching in high school. Her involvement in tennis has made a great contribution to the team. Besides coaching, she competes in some tournaments as well. She has no family and coaching tennis, as well as science in the South House, is her only career, both which help her to be a dedicated coach. When asked to predict her star player's future in tennis, she stated, "Chuck Bratka will be an excellent college player, because he has continued to improve." She thinks he is the nicest person you would ever want to know and that this will also help him to succeed in college. Coach Gwynn views coaching such an excellent team as an honor.

"Unless we get a good transfer next year, things don't look too promising!", replied Gwynn when asked about the future teams' potential. Their district stand- ing of 6th out of eight schools was an improvement over last year's standing of last place. Most valuable player was Senior Anne McHugh because she is always at practice and very motivated. The team will lose her along with Tracy Kagan and Thien Pham which will affect the teams' standing. Iunior Tracy Kagan stated, "I am not going to play next year because of my tough academic schedule." She feels tennis demands a lot of time and dedication on the part of the participants which she can't continue to give. Tragy felt the toughest school to de eat was Memorial and said, "They have a solid team and have many ranked players on both their boys and girls teams." The team was defeated by them twice, 1-8 and 0-4. The easiest win for Tracy was Spring Woods. There were no changes in coaching techniques as far as Coach Gwynn is concerned. Tracy explained, "Coach Gwynn plans many drills, designed to perfect specific skills. She also involves running and jumping rope in our practices, helping us to become more agile and durable." The girl's tennis team has a lot of potential and can go far Tracy believes. "We have a solid and dedicated team and they have improved tremendously over the past year!" Tracy stated.

Losing to Hastings by 1 113 points was very disappointing. Coach Fawcett felt it was the worst experience of the season because they were so close to being district champs. The regional competitors consisted of Devlin Dunn in the long jump and 400 meter dash, Trevor Dodd in the 110 high hurdles, and the 1600 meter relay team of Darren Bell, Shawn Forristall, Tim Adam- chick, and Devlin Dunn. Outstanding players of this season were Devlin Dunn and Trevor Dodd, both doing exceptionally well in compe- tition. Trevor replied, "I think team member. He is the fastest and runs the best in competition." junior Gary Neal has had a memorable season. One event that was most unusual was during a meet when his pole broke in the pole vaulting event. Coach Fawcett felt that he was an excellent player, but hasn't really been recognized enough, and that he may possibly be the star player next year. The outlook on the future team as Coach Fawcett ex- plained, "With improved attitude and hard work, there is no stopping the Elsik Rams! The team will strive to get better and improve in their weak areas to succeed further in the future!" By Noelle Miller IV Track:Front: T. Terasas, B. Locke, M. Porter, R. Blankenship, C. Melchor, D.

Coach Fawcett stated, "I believe that Gary could be the star player next year, unless some new kids come in with a lot of skill." Gary feels that he has improved, but still has a long way to go. He replied, "I also feel that encouraging team mates is important to succeed." Gary started track in the seventh grade and has been pole vaulting ever since. His brothers ran track for Elsik while he was in middle school. This in- fluenced him and, as Gary put it, "They forcibly got him to run track too!"

He 242 CompetitionlTrack Features ll -Coach Fawcett was known as the best track coach in the state, and Gary said, "l believe it! If it has anything to do with track, he is an authority on it." His most memorable meet was the Viking Relays at Dulles. He placed second in a varsity meet and was only a sophomore. In another meet, another mem- orable event happened-his pole broke while in air.

He scored points at the Gulf Coast Relays in the 110m hurdles, at the Blinn College Relays in the long jump, and won district in the 110m high hurdles as well as scoring points in the 300m intermediate hurdles and in the long jump. Trevor replied, "I feel good about my participation. I think right now I am at the plateau in my running and hope to excel soon!" He started track in his sophomore year. After his first year of track he decided to stay with it and now has been competing for two years. Is he going to continue track in the future? He replied, "I hope so!" Trevor admires Coach District Fawcett, and believes his meth- od of coaching is very effective. "He makes people try their hardest. He lets you enjoy the sport while exceling at the same time." Trevor feels he is a tough coach, but if the individual wants to be the best, Coach Fawcett will help him get there. In order to succeed Trevor says, "You have to be willing - being the best doesn't come easy!" Last year, district was a forever memory in Trevor's mind. He was expected to get 3rd in hurdles but walked off with lst place and a trip to regionals. This year was tougher for him because of the Hastings hurdlers. At district, Hastings won by 1 1X3 points giving our track team second place in district. By Noelle Miller Four Years Pay Off Senior Ienny Stinneford has become a very skilled contender. She has been on the track team for fouryears andwillbe leaving when she graduates. She re- plied, "I am sad about leaving the team because the Ram- runners have been a big part of my four years in high school." Sadly, she said that she will always look back and remember the great times the team had together. Ienny helped in defending their district championship for the fifth time in five years. She earned third place in the 3200m run where she ran her best two mile time and from there she advanced to regionals. Though the seniors are leaving, Ienny felt that if the remaining team sticks together and have the same spirit they will do well. "You have to want to win before you can win!", she stated. Coach Parke contributed a lot toward Ienny's winning season. She had her best track season this year because Coach Parke helped her mentally as well as physically.

Like most of the players, he realized the impor- tance of teamwork. Though each player could pick out another player that was his favorite the coaches said that there was "no real outstanding player. A lot of different players made good plays at different times. Team was the main idea of our players." Two games stick out in the minds of our coaches, but the most gratifying was beating Hastings in the second game. "We felt that Hastings really waxed us the first game, and with hard work and deter- mination we pulled through to win the second game 5-2."

Anne Learns Winning Isn't Everything Varsity tennis player Anne McHugh has learned the values of losing with good sports- manshi . She has competed in tennis For four years and has maintained a good attitude toward the rules of winning and losing. Her biggest loss was to a state ranked girl from Kincaid. She stated, "It was terrible, but she did have one thing going for her - the girl had been playing since childhood." Anne was born in Madison, Wisconsin and tennis never became a part of her life until high school. What got her interested? Coach Gwynn sug- gested she try out for the team since she enjoyed watching the sport, never assuming she would turn out to be the most 250 CompetitionlSports Highlights outstanding player of the season. Anne earned this title because of her positive attitude and willingness to play her best. She replied, "I stuck with it the whole nine yards while others dropped out and look where it got me." Her main accomplishment this season was her comeback against a Westchester girl. She came back from 4-6, 1-4 to win the second set but ended up losing the tie-breaker. She explained, "It was a close match, and though I lost, I was proud I hadn't given up." Her positive attitude helped her to see the goals of participating in a sport. Winning isn't the only thing that counts. It's what you learn while you play.

I would like to begin by thanking Mrs. Karen Ritter. The original group of students that sat in N121 on the first day of school was simply a bunch of non-journalistic kids. By semester, Mrs. Ritter's patience and knowledge had molded, shaped, and challenged us into a staff, a group of responsible people that could work for and with each other. But, the responsibility did come with time. Missed deadlines, deleted copy and pictures, and the dreaded "Do this page over," were just a few things that transformed us. The theme we chose for the book was designed to reflect the inner positive feelings and fears of the students this year. We are the future is a statement that we developed in several different ways. We wanted to prove that everything done in life as well as school was a step toward the future. This yearbook's purpose is to present the accomplishments, challenges, and mistakes of the year, a year that helps build the future. As Mrs. Ritter would say, the book is not a scrapbook for just the "popular people." Our goal was to include everyone, at least to the best of our ability. Equal coverage was a major concern. Everyday that we worked together we grew and matured a little more. We learned to respect each other's property, and above all, personal space and freedom. I can't begin to describe the different personalities that creat- ed the staff. We had loners. Noelle was the only staffer who could write a story and headline while listening to her walkman on full blast. And then there was the cheerful people. Robbye always has a smile, no matter how bad things got. Robyn never let anything bother her. She always made her deadlines, and I envy her calm nature. I was always the one to panic. "Spaz" became my eternal nickname. One of my favorite people to argue with is Lisa Locke, the senior editor. It took 286 The Staff us a month to convince Lisa that the publishing company would not fit that copy into that small space just because "she" liked it that way. There were several times when we wanted to strangle each other, but I think our banquet at Circus made us all realize how special this year has been. The one person I will be forever grateful to is Rae Rabe, my assistant editor. It's funny how I've always referred to Rae as "my" assistant editor, but she really was my right arm. She was always there to push me one step further. At times, she had to scream at me, hit me, or threaten to hide my entire file drawer, but she managed to inspire me every time. Rae was announced Editor-in-chief for next year, and I wish her all the luck in the world. She's a true friend, and I was lucky and blessed to have her work beside me. Thanks Rae. To the students of Elsik, I hope you will see the work and energy that we put into this yearbook. We did it for you, and we hope that you like it. A quote from our very special adviser can really tie it all together: "It's the best journalistic yearbook at Elsik to make budget." Finally, l'd like to wish everyone the best of luck. To the class of '84, I hope this is a treasure you will cherish always. The memories will be here when you need them in years to come. Sincerely, Misty M. Bogle Editor-in-chief, Ramblings '84 Rae and I tMistyJ, side by side like always, worked together all year, on every deadline, sometimes until dawn. Fighting was our most common form of communication, but this book has formed a friendship that will last a lifetime. Photo by A. Miles QL? sp 'RQ' i ' S.
