HB 72 imposes Changes
When H. Floss Perot rolled out his
listofchanges forthe 1984-85 school
year, it was approved through House
Bill 72. In a year that changes were
inevitable, the Alvarado Independent
School District responded to HB 72
by changing just about everything
but the school's name.
The grading system was upgraded
by raising the passing grade from 60
to 70. Morning tutorial classes set up
on Tuesday and Thursday attracted
about half the number assigned.
When clubs could finally squeeze a

and practices, few sleepy-eyed

impossible to wake students from their

dropped and activities slowed. One

and D.E.C.A, Although drill team has

With so much emphasis put on
academics and not interrupting class,

came, few officers came, little club

'Perotitis' Cuts Census
With Ross Perot's involvement in the
passing of HB 72, seniors experienced
more than just senioritis, they gave a new
definition to pre-graduation depression -
Perotitis. Although the symptoms of this
depression usually begin after spring
break, the signs were obvious after the
first six weeks of school.
Even though from start to finish the
school's enrollment dropped by only ten
students, it was evident by the fourth six
weeks period that the Senior Class was
going to lose considerably more
members than the other classes would.

A "good ole boy" minus the red neck,
Terry Tackett's "big man on campus"
swagger is as unoffending as his
personality is warm.
As Mr. A.H.S., he roundly represented
extra-curricular while maintaining a "B"
average and taking an active role in the
local Methodist Youth Fellowship.
Although he picked up second team
all-district tight end honors, his real worth
surfaced when it was bond tire building
time. Unfortunately, his mammoth
contribution, a house, was prematurely
burned when vandals struck.
As Student Council vice president, he
only filled in tor Lisa McGuttey, president,
once to give the morning announce-
ments, but complained, "I don't like
talking on that thing. I have to have
people to look at when l'm talking."

Teacrer Turnover Minimal
With the resignation of Principal Louis
Zastoupil, a series of reshuffling positions
occurred. Mr. Dale Brock was promoted
to principalship and Mr. Danny Phillips
was upped from distributive education
instructor to dean of students. The two
novices started theiryearwith t!3oftheir
staff also being new.
The English department added two
new instructors, Mr. David Bower, senior
English, and Mrs. Jane Bolin, junior
English and drama teacher. The math
department also moved in two newfaces,
Mr. Dennis Loofborrow and Mrs. Jackie
Stacey. The coaching staff had several
replacements from last year: Coach
Perry Graves, JV basketball coach,
Coach Jeff Harp, baseball coach, Coach
Jerald McCanlies, assistant football
coach, and Coach Ann Robinson, JV
basketball coach. Mrs. Susan Hartsfield
was newly assigned to teach resource.
Mr. Charlie Biles took over D.E. for Mr.
Phillips. Newly wed Mrs. Sharla Brauns
became a rookie homemaking teacher.
Several new aides were added to help
untangle the influx of paperwork: Mrs.
Majorie Tackett, Mrs. Vicki Moore, and
Mrs. Nan Kovak.
Taking the office that is traditionally the vice
principal's office, Principal Dale Brock gave
the bigger office to Dean of Students Danny
Phillips. Keeping up with t'Better Homes and

Indians End '
1 1-3 Record
Although ending their season with an
impressive 11-3 district record and
having a better head-to-head record than
deprived of a play-off spot.
The combination of poor coin flipping
ability and the lack of a clause in the
district minutes specifying that head-
to-head record should be of greater
importance than season record ended
the spring sports for the Indians.
Although three sports will have to be
filled, head Coach Jeff Harp claims, "We
should be top competitors again next
year in district."

At JV Level
Opening the 1984-85 season with a
victory over Lake Worth, the girls' Indian
tennis team finished first overall in junior
varsity district. Due to tough competition
in singles, Coach Ann Robinson entered
most of the players as doubles in the
tennis matches. Some of these doubles
were Mo Hickman and Tami Tatum, and
Pam Guidry and Tammy Bayles.
Since the spring tennis season was
short, Coach Flobinsoon stated, "lt really
made it hard to have a strong winning
team, and since tennis is basically form,
strokes, serving and power, we didn't
have time to develop these skills in every

196 Advertising and Index
Ad Sales Add More Color
By selling over 35,000 worth of
advertisement to local businesses, the
1984-85 Warrior was able to include
more color. Though several advertisers
chose not to advertise this year, there
were several new ad contracts sold.
Withtheopening ofthenew businesses
accumulating in town came the Alvarado
National Bank. In a town with only about
3,000 residents it was hard to imagine
two banks, but the idealistic thought
became realistic when a group of
stockholders turned Alvarado into a two
Although it's not a new business and
Drive-In once again captured the
attention of residents all over the
metroplex and surrounding areas by
making the headlines. lt seems that the
infamous drive-in was fighting a church
alliance to stay open. The churches and
concerned citizens who complained
about the XXX theater wanted a border
around the drive-in to shield the screen
from public view.
The Alvarado National Bank, which opened on
March 22, offered a new dimension in banking
ease - MPACT. The new bank has revised
"banking on the square" although the MPACT
machine is located on Hwy. 67 across from the
Alvarado State Bank.
Dairy Twin, which was once the only fast food
restaurant in town, was plagued with
competition as Sonny's Grill and Pop's Honey
Fried Chicken opened within two miles of the
local landmark. Seniors Michelle Ritchey and
Retha McBeath are employed as part time
workers at Dairy Twin through H.E.C.E.

Conserving electricity and all forms
of energy not only helps save our
nation's precious energy resources, it
helps you and your family save
money. Do your part . . . close
windows and doors when the heating
or air conditioning unit is on . . .
don't "graze" with the refrigerator
door open . . . hot water takes
energy--try a shorter shower . . .
turn off the TV or stereo when
you're through with it. Work with
? your family to save energy now . .
you'll help assure there will be
1 ' enough for everyone when you start
a family of your own.
