Tastes change as seniors grow up in crazy decade Ten years ago the year 1980 sounded like something out of a sci-fi novel. Well now it ' s here and the changes that we ' ve made from second grade to seniors are many. Then we woke up bright-eyed, eager to go to school and " work and play, " Now we can barely get up in the morning and the word work has been purged from most of our vocabularies. In the second grade we neither knew nor cared anything about the Honor Roll and never thought there was such a thing as Calculus. Knowing our multiplication tables made us a brain. In 1970 we bragged about our new Schwinn 5 speed. In 1980 we (sometimes) brag about our cars, even if they are shabby. It ' s hard to believe that then we were mad about paying 50 t for bicycle patches, and now we are paying $1.27 for a gallon of gas. And oh how our reading ma terial has changed! Now that Tom, Betsy and Susan have outgrown us and gone on to the soap operas, we ' ve abandoned them for the books on the bestsellers list. Even our illnesses have changed. Back then we stayed home with the mumps. Of course now it ' s senioritis that keeps us in bed. And to think that at one time Kool-Aid was the " popular " drink is unbelievable. Now such greats as Tom Collins and Jack Daniels have become our choice beverages. After progressing ten years, we can easily admit that we have changed, although a few girls still wear braids and some of Ripple ' s males cannot spell! •LINDA SMITH: Pep Club 1; Legion ol Honor 14; Legion o( Menl 1-4; Natl Honor Society 3-4; Intramural Bowling 1-2; COE 4: OEA 4; Color Guard 1-2; ROTC 1-4 ' MICHAEL SMITH: Legion ol Ment 2-4; Legion o( Honor 2-4; Art Salon 1 -4; Yearbook 4; Riparian Newsmagazine 4; Art Club 1 -4; Tres 3; President 4; Debate Club 3-4; Vice Pres 4; Debate Team 3- 4; Homecoming King Candidate 3-4; Track Manager 1 -4; Math and Science Club 2-3; Science Club 4; Student Senate 1 -4; French Club 4; Letterman 2-3; ISU Honor Program •ROBIN SMITH ' JERRY SNYDER: Letterman 2-4; FCA; Basketball 1-4; Baseball 1-4; Freshman Football. •TRACEY STEWART JACQUETTA SUMMERS Pep Club 1-2; Sophomore Cabinet; Volleyball 2; OEA Secretary 4; Legion ot Ment 1 ' DEBRA TATE: Pep Club 1-2: OEA 4 •JOHN TENSMEYER: Golden Singers 3-4; Cross Country 1-4; Track 1-4; Junior Cabinet; Tres; Senior Cabinet; Baseman 2-4; Natl Honor Society 3-4; Ripples 1-2, 4; Sound Crew 1-4; Math Contest 2-4; Letterman 1-4; Orchestra 1-2; Legion ol Ment 1-4; Art Salon 1-4. •GLENDA THOMAS ' JAMES THOMPSON ' TERESA THOMPSON •VTNCENT TOLES: Basketball 1-2; ROTC 1- •STACEY TORAN: Foolball 1 -4: Basketball 1 -4; Letterman 2- 4; Senior Cabinet; Homecoming King 4; Boys State 4 •SHERRY TORRENCE: Pep Club 12; Bowling 12; Orange Aid I ' LEE ANN TOWNLEY: OBRC 3-4; Thespian 3 4; Masque and Mime 2-3; Golden Singers 4; Swing Choir 4; Concert Club 3, Musical 4; Makeup 1-4; Props 2; Ripples 1-4; One Acts 2-4; One Acts Director 4; French Club 2; Key Club 3 4; Co secretary 4; Orange Aid 1 -4; Legion ol Ment 2-4 •LENA TRABUE Seniors 1 1 2

The one on the left was a senior, tall and confident looking. The youthful teenager on the right was a freshman, puny and awkward. This is the story of not just two high school students, but of the changes that take place over four years of high school. A freshman must learn to adjust to a new school, new faces and still keep both feet on the ground. Most freshmen immediately seek new friendships, especially amoung upper classmen with " clout. " The word " freshman " soon became a derogatory term. One freshman explained that it was not the word itself but the way people said it. The problem of respect did not plague seniors. They were not only older, but wiser. They knew (or thought they knew) which teachers were best; who was the most talked about couple; and what cliques met where. College was on the minds of many seniors. There were SAT ' s to be taken, applications to be mailed, and campuses to be visited. All these experiences made some impressions on seniors who knew this was their last year.As commencement neared, seniors grew more independent and impatient to be out on their own. They forgot that once they hit college it would be like starting over. They would experience being the bottom man on the totem pole once again, a lowly " freshman. " Seniors 11 1
