at spectacular, wasn't that kind of a year. It will be

the fall, one of the minor sports was making
story. Led by junior John Anderson, our unherald-

district title. It was the first district running title in
our l I-year history.
During the previous year, Anderson had put
together a squad of All-American swimmers who
captured the state 5A girls' aquatic title. The
young, mostly sophomore squad was considered
the odds-on favorite to repeat as champions,
perhaps for the next two years. However, because
of disenchantment with the coaching and ,swim
facilities, the squad's four All-Americans 'quit,

The year ended early for the girls, and it threw

was being laid for a comeback.

critics said we were spending too much time on
the playing field and not enough time in the
classroom. Several recommendations were made.
It was then the legislature's turn.
While the outcome wasn't known at year's end,
we all realized the athletic scene as we knew it
was undergoing change. But that change would
never create a large turnout to support a district
champion cross-country team, nor would it ever
bring back a state championship in swimming.
However, there would continue to be cross-
country, and swimming, and football, and all the
other sports. Academics was the main reason for

Although grades were important, most
students believed there came a time to put
away books and relax, do something you
enjoy. For many Anderson students, this
simply meant being with friends.
And that was how students spent their
time away from class, whether it be atten-
ding a football game, participating in
Homecoming Parade festivities, or splitting
a pizza at Mr. Gatti's. There were plenty of
opportunities to socialize and more than
enough people willing - it was an activity

During the first and last months of
school, when the sunny days made it hard
to remain in a classroom, a favorite
pastime of students was to head for the
lake. By the carloads, students flocked to
City Park, especially on the weekends, for
a day of fun and sun. lt provided a chance
to forget troubles and, at the same time,
obtain that "super tan." Another favorite
student pastime was to hit the local movie

Parade preparation: work for all
one of the big events ending the
Homecoming week was the annual
Homecoming Parade. Many clubs and
organizations took part in this by entering
floats decorated to an appropriate theme.
Others participated as they marched
along the parade route laced with spec-
tators. Though people appreciated what
they saw on the surface - decorations,
signs, and costumes, their perceptions
may have been flourished knowing what
the students and sponsors had put into it.
Entering a float required much respon-
sibility and dedication to design and con-
struct that float. Those involved in this ac-
tivity joined together and became a team
that worked on their own time, until the
final touches were applied. A float was not
thrown together in just one dayg it took
much time and patience.
The other organizations, such as bar
and Belles, not involved in riding float

Finally, Oct. 27, the day of the parade, ar-

the celebration, council members double-
checked the parade route, the floats and
the order once more.
After all 23 floats completed the charted
course, certificates were given to those
who were most original, most beautiful
and had the best theme.
Dedication was the key to a successful
parade. After the event was over and the
decorations taken down, it could definitely

Parties: A celebration of senioritis
W ith the realization that this was their
final year of school, many seniors
had parties to celebrate this glorious occa-
sion. The three stages they had completed
- elementary, junior high and high school
- were behind them and the future was
For some, no more gruesome homework
assignments. But for others, college, an
even greater task, lay ahead. Whatever the
case, the seniors made the best of their

A wide variety of parties were held. The
more common were swimming parties that
could be enjoyed by throwing people in the
pool or doing cannonballs off the diving
board. Some people went as far as
Hawaiian luaus and Mexican fiestas. Leis
and Mexican hats decorated every guest.
The more solemn, calm gatherings
could also be found. A night filled with
playing cards, watching TV, cruising
around town, or just sigging around and
recalling past events were shared by some.
The main topic discussed by girls was
"boys," and, of course the guy's main
topic was "girls."

'ears and cheers. These two simple
words best summed up the many
lrtfelt emotions held by millions of peo-
around the word during 1984.
'here were intense moments of despair,
vhich strong feelings of anger, fear and
en confusion were expressed, both ver-
Iy and silently. Such events as the inva-
1 of Grenada, and the stationing and kill-
of American Marines in Beirut caused
ion among government officials and
school students alike.

st by a Soviet SLI-15 jet, killing 269
sengers, including Americans. Soviet
cials claimed that the passenger carrier
been mistaken for a spy plane. This
ated a controversy between Russia and
United States, in which most of the
: world joined.
Leruit was a place of mass bombings
chaos during the majority of the
ool year. However, it was also a spot of
interest for many Anderson students, due
to the stationing of two former students
with the Marines in Beruit.
Concern for friends and relatives station-
ed in that world hotspot was evident, and it
came as a shock to the student body and
faculty when news arrived that Tim
McMahon, an '83 graduate had ,been killed
in the bombing of the Marine barracks in
Beruit. The bad news was somewhat
tempered by the revelation that Marine
Joel Montgomery, another '83 graduate,
wasn't killed in the bombing.
Grenada was another area of political
turmoil in the world. Against Cuban and
Grenadian resistance, the LLS. 82nd Air-
borne invaded the small Caribbean island,
supposedly to rescue more than 600
stranded American medical students.
More than 6,000 troops were sent to ac-
complish this task, and for the first time in
American history, the press was barred
from being present during the invasion and
fighting which followed.
A large cache of arms and explosives
was found on the island, and government
officials asserted that Grenada was being
prepared as a base for revolutionary ac-
tivities in the Caribbean, and South and

Winter Olympics. Although Americans
hoping for another gold medal in hockey
were disappointed, the Ll.S. team brought
home eight medals.
America's gold medal winners included
Debbie Armstrong in the giant slalom,
Scott Hamilton in men's figure skating, Bil-
ly Johnson in downhill racing, and Phil
Mahre in the giant slalom.
The Winter Olympics were thought of
by some as merely a warmup to the Sum-
mer Olympics, which were scheduled for
Los Angeles in July. However, much of the
anticipation of an East vs. West confronta-
tion was lost when the Russians and most
of the Communist countries announced at
the end of the school year that they would
boycott the games. This was thought by
most to be in retaliation to a similar

public school reform, the shocking
breakup of "Ma Bell," and the new con-
cept of rock videos captured student atten-
tion during the 1983-84 school year.
For the first time in American political
history, a black candidate rivaled white op-
ponents in a presidential race. Rev. Jesse
Jackson, former civil rights activist,
sought the Democratic nomination, turn-
ing out a record black vote during the
primaries. Jackson had gained fame in the
early 1960's while participating in civil
rights marches with Martin Luthur King Jr.
As in any presidential election year,
much of the national scene was dominated
by candidates vying for position. President
Ronald Reagan surprised no one by an'
nouncing he would run for re-election, but
after the first few primary elections, what
appeared to be a surprisingly close race
developed on the Democratic side between
Jackson, newcomer Sen. Gary Hart of Col-
orado, and the favorite, Walter Mondale.
All of the major Democratic candidates
came to Austin seeking support. Reagan
didn't come until July.
As the space shuttles became a routine
part of our lives and we directed our atten-
tion more and more to the unlimited do-
main of space, we were introduced to the
concept of an American female astronaut.
Sally Ride, our first woman in space,
traveled in the Challenger space vehicle in
June of 1983.
ln a mid-summer special session, the
Texas Legislature approved an amended
educational reform plan, proposed by
Governor Mark White and his appointed
chairman of the Select Committee on
Public Education, Dallasite H. Ross Perot.
Perot's goal was to enable future
graduates to competently face the on-
coming age of high technology, just begin-
ning to arrive in Texas.
Specific measures of the reform
package included competency tests for
teachers, teacher pay raises, career
teaching ladders, increased funding to
poorer school districts, and restricted
elementary class sizes.

On the more serious side, political and
health conditions plagued the year locally.
Southwest Austin had problems with its
sewage, and there were too many sewage
hookups to the Williamson Creek Treat-
ment Plant. The City Council tried unsuc-
cessfully to solve the problem by having
trucks transport some of the sewage to
other treatment plants in Austin.
Of course, the big story - a continuing
one - on the local scene was the steady
stream of newcomers to Austin and the
Austin area. With the northwest hills,
healthy environment and favorable living
conditions, Austin continued to be a mec-
ca to most. The exploding population also
meant a need for more living space, which
caused the building industry to continually
set construction records.
Bumper stickers commenting on the
situation usually centered around the
north-south feud: Welcome to Texas. Now
go homeg We don't want to hear how you
did it up nawth, Keep Texas beautiful, put
a Yankee on the bus. The situation caused
one person to observe that the Texas state
bird must be a building crane.

Governor Mark White appointed

One of Perot's first targets was the over-
emphasis placed on athletics by some
school districts. Critics saw this as a war
"lt is impossible to recover the school
day for learning if extracurricular

One of the journalistic highlights of
The Edition's publishing year was a
photo and story concerning the
pressures on a high school athlete. The
story was written by senior Daniel
Carrell, while the photo of Carrell was
taken by senior photographer Charles
Caudillo's photo was entered in the
San Antonio chapter of Sigma Delta
Chi, Society of Professional
Journalists' feature photo contest,
where it won a second-place award.
Carrell's story told of student
athletes who take on the
responsibilities of academic school
work, extra-curricular sports activities,
a job and a social life. While there is a
great amount of pressure, Carrell
wrote, there also are plusses.
"Athletics does a great job in
bringing out the best in a person,"
Carrell wrote. "lt urges the athlete to
improve himself while in competition
with another player
"lt trains one to do his best while
complying with the rules," he
continued. "lt teaches the athlete to
repsect those people in authority over
him, and to obey them in what they
"lt seems that with all of the
pressure, lack of time, rushed days,
exhausting workouts and negative
aspects that affect the athlete, sports
should not be included in high
schools," he added. "But I believe
athletics are the best asset to a high
In addition to his job and athletics,
Carrell served as the "bookkeeper" of
the Publications Dept., as a senior
accounting project. Caudillo was head
photographer of The Afterthought
yearbook, and was the key person
responsible for its publication.
District chooses sports
in athletics vs. academics
by Stacy Pierce
What's a winning season for a football
team worth in dollars? The Round Rock
School Board believes that 544,000 will
bring them a winning season.
The Round Rock board recently voted
unanimously to hire Doug Ethridge of Port
Neches Groves as the new head coach for
Round Rock High School, at a salary of
544,000 a year. The action has drawn
considerable criticism from several areas.
Since the RRISD is a member of the
Southern Assn. of Colleges and Schools
QSACSJ, an accreditation agency, they
must adhere to a SACS policy which
states that the highest paid person on a
school campus must be the principal. This
caused a domino effect which gave raises
to key personnel in the RRISD.
At a board meeting last month, the
trustees spent 515,586 in raises for two
high school principals, one administrator,
one coach and an athletic director. At a
later meeting, school superintendent Dr.
Norman Hall received a 56135 salary
Because of the SACS policy, Round
Rock principal George Bujnoch received a
54207 raise. That brings his yearly salary
to 544,005, or only 55 more than the coach
Since, in the eyes of the school board,
the principal, shouldn't make more than
the athletic director, Joe Means received a
raise of 53600. He now makes 544,010,
only 55 more than the principal and 510
more than the coach.
Also receiving a salary boost was the
district development administrator, Alice
Brown, who received an 5876 raise. She
now makes 544,015, or 55 more than the
athletic director, 510 more than the
principal and 515 more than the coach.
Other personnel were given similar
The main reason Round Rock can hire a
544,000 coach and give 515,586 in raises
is very simple to understand. Round Rock
has only two high schools - Westwood
and Round Rock High. Austin has nine. lt's
cheaper to give two coaches and two
principals raises, rather than nine coaches
and nine principals.
"Our educational system is definitely
more important," Anderson principal Ron
Beauford commented on the Round Rock
situation. "I don't think that 544,000 is too
much for a coach, but compared to what
teachers are making, he is being

Complete with almost every baby
'aracteristic--blunt, fat features, round
eeks, big eyes, short pudgy little arms
d legs--but also down-right ugly, Coleco
:Iustries' latest marketing coup, the
ibbage Patch Kids, began sweeping the
tion in October.
Mobs of people swarm into department
:res upon hearing news that shipments
Cabbage Patch dolls have arrived.
These chubbycheeked dolls originated
Cleveland, Ga., in a medical clinic.
ibbage Patch Kids are cheaper replicas
the Little People, created by Xavier
nberts, who began making them by hand
1978 what he called the "clinic," which
as converted into his Original
Jpalachian Art Works Factory.
Every softsculpture doll had a name,
rth certificate, and an adoption
rtificate listing Roberts as the "father,"
ace of birth was listed as "Babyland
The Little People were first sold at
Georgia flea markets for 530. As demand
for the dolls increased, so did the price.
Little People now cost at least S125 each.
Special anniversary editions cost S500 and
are available at 2000 toy stores--or
"adoption centers"--around the country.
The original Little People are also
experiencing a dramatic sales increase.
Roberts, although he was not adopted,
remembers being told as a child that
babies were found in cabbage patches, a
popular variation onthe stork fairy tale.
Coleco has chartered Boeing 747's to fly
200,000 dolls from their Hong Kong
factory to toy stores around the country.
After Christmas, Coleco will increase the

Every Cabbage Patch Kid is unique, the
hair, dimples, freckles, eye color and hair
color differ in some way from doll to doll.
Each doll also has a different name,
created by the same computers which
design each individual doll.
One factor which appeals to the parents
is that a Cabbage Patch Kid is simple. It
does not wet it's diaper, blink it's eyes, cry,
walk, talk, or roller-skate. It does not make
noise, need batteries to install, or have
buttons to push. It is just a simple rag doll.
When people buy a Cabbage Patch Kid,
they are supposed to vow out loud that
they will take care of their stuffed child.
Adoption papers separate Cabbage Patch
dolls from from any other doll on the
market. The papers build a solid bond
between the adoptive guardian and the
Cabbage Patch Kid.

A friend brought me my yearbook
:sterday. I spent an evening perusing it,
living some of the details of my senior
rar, taking a look at the names and faces
at the writers and photographers chose
record for posterity.
There's something kind of special about

It was a big school. Lot of friends, sure,

miliar faces with unattached names.

:ok are all the faces, all the names. Page
after page, row after rwo of senior pic-
tures. My friends, my acquaintances. I fell
asleep thumbing through my past, and
then it was today.
I picked up The Daily Texan to read with
my breakfast, and there was one of the
faces I recognized from high school. Not a
friend, but a name I knew, a face I recog-
nized from the halls. He was a year older
than I was, Class of '82. And there was his
senior picture on the front page.
He was smiling, and I remembered see-
ing that smile before. Often, I remembered,
he visited his girlfriend in my government
class the year after he had graduated. I
remembered him coming back once in a
uniform, smiling, his hair shorter than ever
and a spring in his step that only pride can
give. Pride and joy in living.
Linder his picture were the simple
words, "Marine PFC Timothy McMahon
Austin native killed in Beirut." Simple
words, yeah. But death is simple, I guess. I
just didn't realize that those front page
stories would ever hit so close to home.
There was his senior picture, and he was
wearing a suit and tie, not the Marine uni-
form that he sported so proudly. And I
found myself wondering which senior
picture I would see next, which of those
little interchangeable squares would catch
the eye of some editor somewhere.
Cause to the editor, that's all it is--a little
square to fill a little space. It could have
been any other one of the Class of '82,
wearing coat and tie and grin. But it was
one of us. This was a somebody, with
friends who'll cry. But he was a somebody
only to those of us who were there, who
could remember. To everyone else, he was
just a picture and a name.
It made me think, made me realize that
there were 228 other somebodies killed
that day in Beirut. 228 other inter-
changeable squares that were friends and
acquaintances, that were names and faces
with coats, ties and grins in other
lt's a small number--229. A small salary,
a short distance. But it's not a small num-
ber of sombodies. Not in anyone's book.
YEARLY EVENTS I 41
This is a lonely one.
It comes as mysteriously as the night and
leaves as quickly as the dawn.
This one envelopesr your very soul,
Stealing you away from reality,
Capturing your consciousness.
This one holds you captive,
Not willing to bargain.
It feeds on your mind
Violently growing on every thought.
This one eventually starves,
Dying a painful death.
This one is enjoyed by few
But introduces itself to many.
This one is Love.
Farewell to Youth
I sat in the meadow with you,
And smelled the wild flowers,
And made pictures out of the clouds,
And spoke of inconsequential things.
We laughed and loved
In the beautiful radiance of a fresh Spring day.
"A new beginning," you said,
"For us and all the earth!"
Oh, we were carefree that day,
Leaving our troubles to take care of themselves.
For just a few hours,
Feeling innocent and happy.
Where has Spring, and the meadow, and the flowers gone?
They all seemed to flee with your departure.
The winter set in, cold and dark,
Leaving me alone in a world without love.
I really don't understand it.
I've thought about it a lot,
But I can't seem to put my finger on it.
How could what we thought was the beginning
Really turn out to be the end?
Where has the innocence,
The glory in the new day gone?
I thought it would last forever.
It's really disillusioning, but
I guess we all have to grow up sometime . . .
As I wander into dreams,
a vision of white stairs
Guides me in a fragile mist like that
of lustrous angel hair.
I consider that dreams might not
At that moment Reality comes to me
In her gently flowing robes
Ever so faintly
that nothing is eternal
Envelop me in your strong embrace.
Give me some comfort, put a smile on my face.
Talk of your dreams and far away lands,
Speak of your struggle in becoming a man.
Be not afraid to show me a tear,
To ask me to listen, I'll always hear.
Let the light in your eyes shine only for me,
Keep me near you always for the whole world to see.
Speak of our future, of our times together.
Promise that all the bad times you'll weather.
Love me more each and every day.
I'll speak with caresses what words can't say.
I want to wander on the beach with you
And hear the crash and smash of salty sea,
To feel so warm the sun that burns so true,
To look at all the shells that interest me.
At times the waves are rough and seem to try
To knock me down. But I just go along
Where tide won't ever stop its lonely sigh
And birds will always call to me in song.
The shifting sand that shimmers hot and dry
Reflects bright rays like brand new shining br.
The breeze that lifts my hair and makes it fly
Refreshes me as nothing ever has.
As long as you are always here with me,
Your presence gives me life and lets me see.

Pleased that all was well, he took his seat.

"Theatre" is a word that is usually asso-
ciated with a buidling used as an entertain-
ment center. Theatre's common definition is:
"a place where plays are acted or
where motion pictures are shown."
That definition is, as all dictionary definitions
are, accurate. The problem with it is that it is
Theatres are not just places to have plays
performed in them or movies shown in them.
Theatres are workshops also-where scenery
and sets can be built, where people learn the
building of the scenery and sets. Theatres are
art galleries full of breathtaking backdrops,
where the artists of tomorrow can perfect
their craft. Theatres are places to learn new
skills and seek out new talents.
The theatre is a home to many who pass
through its doors. The theatre provides a safe
haven for those who cannot face the prob-
lems of the world, but who wish to speak out
against those problems. The theatre is the
place where people can be the people they've
always dreamed of being. lt's where people
can experience places they've never been to.
The theatre is the place where all people are
accepted, no one is turned away.
The most special meaning of the word "the-
atre" is the feeling you get by working with
people you love. Not many people invovled in
the theatre mind being awakened at any hour
of the night to discuss personal problems. The
theatre gives its artisans the feeling that they
are cared about, befriended, and loved. The
theatre is a friend for life.

Most importantly, the club provided a
time for everyone to print pictures,
whether or not they were taking the

students learned that there's really only

"You just need common sense and fast
thinking," Arnold commented.
The members of the club were permit-

everything, they weren't confined to any

Art skills displayed in many areas
rt in all forms...the art of speech, in-
dustrial arts, and the familiar art of
drawing and creating.
According to Webster, art is "the mak-
ing or doing of things that have form and
beauty." But no matter what kind of art is
involved, numerous Anderson students
have strived to perfect their individual
skills in the arts.
For example, Mr. Marvin Lewis, head of
the speech club, said that he tried to "train
the students in public speaking, debate
and poetry interpretation."
By competing in tournaments, the
students were able to learn and enjoy
themselves at the same time, plus they
had the chance to win an award if their per-
formance was outstanding.

But perhaps the most thrilling part of
belonging to any organization was the
prestige and recognition that the students
can get from displaying their talents
publicly. Numerous art students par-

The Scholastic Art Awards Contest
received thousands of entries from

the national level, Mike lvy received an
honorable mention for his pencil drawing,

projects. Society secretary Jana Johnson
said that she was able to improve her
ability to communicate.
"Having to contact speakers and

how to present myself to adults outside of

the girls' varsity basketball team ended up
on top--at least in the coach's mind.

Gymnastics provides special moments
fter all the sweat and aggravation
directed toward perfection of their
routines, the girls' and boys' gymnastics
teams produced some individual moments
Measuring the success of any given
season through her philosophical
viewpoint, the girls' gymnastics coach,
Karen Gonsoulin, suggested a combination
of individual effort and team spirit. With
this concept many fine gymnasts were
uncovered at Anderson, including Laura
Prothro and Jo Ann Tomez.
Proving their unique abilities in a meet
against Lanier on Jan. 5, Prothro placed
first on bars, second on floor and vault,
and fifth on beam, while Tomez placed
second on bars, fifth on floor, and sixth on
vault. ln a meet against Reagan, LBJ,
Johnston and Austin High, the girls' team
placed second, and both all-around event
competitors, Prothro and Ann Thompson,
placed high in the meet.
imitating a tense actor before his
performance on opening night, meanwhile,
senior gymnast David Zern, represented
the boys' squad and prepared for his
fourth state competition.
As an all-year-around sport, gymnastics
required diligent students who not only
knew the basic moves but were willing to
practice after school.
"We practiced during school hours and
at least once a week in the evening,
usually Wednesday night, to work on our
routines," girls' team member Sheila Perez
Stiff competition directed from San
Antonio and Austin high schools provided
plentiful competition for the girls' team.
Although the team had many individual
successes-which was expected, since
gymnastics is an individual sport--Coach
Gonsoulin's main concern for a following
successful year was to heavily publicize
gymnastics in order to obtain the new
team members required to construct a
strong, upcoming unit.
From students interested in gymnastics,
sponsor Otis Budd held tryouts for
tumblers who would perform before Friday
football games. Throughout the year this
group, known as gymkhana, not only
tumbled at Anderson's Friday football
games, but appeared at elementary
schools and various sports activities.
During a practice session in the gym,

tand while working out on the rings.

ln addition to the four standout
freshmen, Ochoa was optimistic because
of two additions which were to grace the
team for the 1984-85 season - the number
one seed from Lanier High School, who
transferred into the Anderson attendance
zone, and a Laredo transfer, who was part
of the AAAA doubles team which reached
the state finals.
"l'm excited about the new players
coming to Anderson next year," Ochoa
said. "The more depth, the better."
While Ochoa was optimistic about the
next year, one team member was

Underdog runners prove to be winners
The Cross Country team was
expected to be an underdog, but it
proved everyone wrong.
The team was gifted with good runners
and hard workers, said Coach Tom
Matocha. The only disappointment for
them during the season was regionals, and
their goal for the next year was "to win
regionals," Matocha said.
The year started out well with their first
meet at Austin High School's hike-and-bike
trails. In the boys' varsity division, John
Anderson placed second, Stacy Pierce
placed eighth and Rudy Casarez finished

Students, excited because of their recent promo-
tion to "upperclassman," were often surprised at
the change that occurred during the year. Teachers
began to prepare the students for adult life. Re-
quirements and responsibilities grew rapidly during
this year and the junior found himself having to
make very mature decisions about his future.
But even in the midst of much stress, juniors
always found something to relieve the tension. lt
might have been a basketball game, an "awesome"

Sophomores redefine themselves
S oph' omore - n. A second year
student in a high schoolg one next
above a freshman. "Got that, plebe?"
Even in Webster's time, a sophomore
was of higher staltus than freshmen. But
why couldn't he leave well enough alone?
He goes on to make an offensive adjective
out of a perfectly good noun by defining
the word "sophomore" as "bombastic,
immature, shallow, and superficial."
Wait a minute! We resemble that
remark! Why couldn't he have come up
with a word like "freshmanic" or
"junioristic," even "senioric?"
Sophomores are misunderstood, it's all a
part of the "sandwich syndrome."
After all, seniors had graduation to look
forward to, leaving the "prison" of high
school to get out into the real world, The
juniors' goal was "rule the school"g to
have the best senior class ever. Freshman
anticipated more than anything else
simply not being freshmen. Under
constant ridicule and harrassment, these
plebian students anxiously awaited the
day when they, in turn could pick on the
But what of the sophomores? All we
really had to look forward to was another
year of the "syndrome," agonizing us to
the point of frustration. We were
considered underclassmen, and were
treated with the disrespect we face
There was hardly a significant cha

This was of little consolation. Still

colors. They were an inspiratiol

seeing friends, the family station wagon
was transportation. However, those who
weren't old enough to drive, or didn't have
their own car were forced to be chauffered
or gave up the idea altogether and spent
hours on the phone instead - a pastime
not popular with parents.
And then there was the question of
money. Did our parents really go for a
hamburger and a movie for less than S5?
That kind of spending would hardly buy
one movie ticket at Northcross. Imagine
how long those seniors saved for a date to
the Police concert! At any rate, the time
was fast arriving when lthe expense o
date would be shared - a welco
thought indeed. l
Now there was no d 'ubt that an L'
sophomore could get a date in the fi

Grades are 'weighty' subject 1
n August of 1983, the Austin Indepen-
dent School District began using a
system of weighted grades.
Under the prevailing system, an "A" in
an advanced or "honors" class was worth
111 points, when averaged into the stu-
dent's GPA, rather than 96 points for an
"A" in a regular class. Educators decided
to use this system in order to encourage
and reward students who were willing to
put forth the extra effort required in an
ln the past, highly motivated students
were forced to make the decision between
taking competitive, honors courses that
would be mentally challenging, require
more work and preparation, and a tougher
grading criteria, or take a regular class that
would require less work and preparation
and would have a more lenient grading
system. The ultimate choice had to be
whether the student was willing to put out
extra effort and possibly be penalized for it
by receiving a lower grade, or to put out
less effort and receive a higher grade.
Many students, concerned about keep

erhaps the least recognized school
workers are cafeteria personnel. The
main job of the cafeteria personnel was, of
course, to prepare and serve food, and to
clean the food equipment.
"Part of my job is ordering food and
making sure that we have everything we
need," cafeteria manager Bobbie Culp
said. "l also sometimes cook, help clean
and serve on the line."
Culp became manager in February,
following the retirement of Atrelle

"Every once in a while, l have to
evaluate the other employees," Culp
continued. "Then, about four or five times
a year, we have a health inspection. The
inspector goes over the kitchen with white
gloves, taking points off for grease or
dust," she added.
