l4j "Don't put that picture of me in the yearbook." Mrs. Virginia Karloff. COE coordinator
and business instructor. usually presses her nose up the window every morning as she
watches students arrive for classes.
Keeping with the beat of
the times, seniors kept their
car stereos tuned to stat' ins
KUPD, KNIX, KDKB.
Bebopping all the way to
school, students jammed to
the sound of their favorite
tunes. Fleetwood Mac's
"Dreams," was the top
favorite for seniors as they
dreamed visions of com-
The Eagles' "Life in the
Fast Line" was another
favorite for the seniors' fast
"Keep It Coming Love"
was another fad from KC
and the Sunshine Band.
Every generation strives to
be something, but '78 sen-
iors wanted to be every-
thing. Andy Gibb's single,
"I Just Want to Be Your
Everything." proved that by
eating fourth out of the sen-
iors' Top 10.
"On and on." the seniors
kept trying. and they smiled
when they felt like crying.
The seniors did succeed and
Steven Bishop's hit, "On

been the motivating force.

Taylor, was frequently

Emotions was hummed
many a time by seniors. Just
"How Much Love?" is "The
Best of My Love" may have
been a question for seniors.
Leo Sayers' "How Much
Love?" created a hit and a
bit of thought.
Two more favorites for
seniors included "Brick-
house." by the Commo-
dores and "You Light up
My Life" by Debbie Boone.

rock and roll will have come

songs that kept their school

Color means different things to dif-
ferent seniors according to the moods
and feelings in their changing surround-
ings. What was the favorite mood set-
Blue. yellow. green. silver. brown.
purple. black, orange. each hue had its
own meaning. For instance. if a senior
liked blue. it meant that he was a very
mellow person. Blue in a room gave a
feeling of freedom and relaxation. To a
certain extent some shades of green pro-
duced the same effect.
lf red was a favorite color. he was pre-
pared for action! This bright color was
usually too stimulating to be near any
length of time according to seniors.
Black was supposed to be the combi-
nation of all colors. This is true. but stop
and think for a minute. how beautiful
the shiny black Chevy pickup was. In
the clothing line, black seemed to go
with any other color. whether it was a
simple top or a long silky skirt.
Yellow was the most cheerful of all
colors. On a sunny day think how nice
and pleasant everyone was. but when
the sun wasn't out. seniors' moods
changed to a kind of depression.

Variety in seniors' happ days
Here we were . . . products of the age
of electronics. We were the generation
of television. We grew up around "Ses-
ame Street." "Bozo." and "Ko-iak." Tel-
evision brought history to our living
rooms and committed murder before
our eyes. lt gave us knowledge of other
worlds. yet possibly stunned our imagi-
nations of them. Television was our idol
and our enemy.
Humor. adventure. violence. sports.
we saw it all. Just what turned the sen-
iors on. and what were they tuming on?
"Charlie's Angels" was the seniors'
choice program, followed closely by
"Mash." Another favorite was "Happy
Days." proving high school days really
were happy days.
"Eight ls Enough" was just enough
for the seniors. Other favorites
included: "Welcome Back Kotterf'
"Starsky and Hutch." "Wide World of
Sports." "Emergency," and "The San
Pedro Beach Bums."
Yes, we were television addicts. but
what would we have done all those bor-
ing Tuesday nights without it?
