"What else made up the Zeitgeist of 1984-85?"
Locally, the Detroit Tigers gave Michigan something to
cheer about by winning the 1984 World Series. At Dundee
High School, numerous students could be found showing
off their Tiger spirit by wearing the Tiger logo.
When Dundee students returned in September, they
found that construction for the installation of a water pipe
along Ypsilanti Street had begun. The project was a nui-
sance to many of the students who had to walk to school,
until it was completed in Ianuary.
New toy innovations like GoBots and Transformers be-
came something that every kid just had to have! Along
with the still popular Cabbage Patch doll and Trivial
Pursuit game, GoBots and Transformers were the hottest
selling Christmas items.
The break-up of AT8:T in September by the U.S.
government sparked the arrival of new long distance
phone companies like Sprint and MCI. With all the new
competition, consumers have a wider range of options in
who will get their long distance business.
The lift-off of the space shuttle Discovery from Cape
Kennedy in November was a national spectacle, as it at-
tempted to repair a damaged satellite in space. The
mission was a success for NASA and the United States.
Many medical advances drew the attention of the
world. Baby Fae struggled to survive with a baboon heart.
She survived an amazing 21 days. The surgery in October
questioned many of the moralities of heart transplants.
Probably one of the most significant medical advances
was the testing of the artificial heart. A second operation
was attempted on William Schroeder, who was the first to
have a portable unit.
America's growing patriotism was shown in records like the title cut
from the album Born in the U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen.
Transformers, GoBots and Robo Force friends were rare items to be
found around Christmas time, as sales exceeded all expectations.

"We do. Our pride, our attitude,
our events, and our spirit make up
the Zeitgeist of 1985."
The Olympics proved to be the cli-
max of our nation's patriotism. The
world's eyes were directed to the
summer Olympics in Los Angeles,
where the United States made a
strong showing. Sixteen communist
countries boycotted the games, but
that didn't put a damper on athletes

The country may not be ready for
a female Vice President, but it is ap-
parent that women will be in the po-
litical scene in years to come. The
Democratic ticket of Walter
Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro
raised a few eyebrows, but didn't
produce enough votes to overpower
the powerful Republican ticket of
Ronald Reagan and George Bush in
the November 6 election.
The Statue of Liberty received a
face lift of sorts. The two year
project of overhauling the statue will
cost an estimated S210 million
dollars, all provided by public dona-
Terrorist groups made the head-
lines throughout the year. In Novem-
ber, India's Prime Minister Indira
Gandhi was assassinated by Sikh
rebels, a religious minority group. In
weeks to follow, attacks on the Sikhs
would bring about the death of over
India was also the scene for the
worst chemical plant tragedy in
history. The Union Carbide disaster
caused the death of an estimated
2500 people. Lawsuits from numer-
ous individuals were filed despite
the innocent pleas from the plant.
Ethiopia had its share of problems
in 1984. An estimated 2000 people
died of starvation even with the
efforts from foreign countries and
concerned individuals. The British
musical group Bandaid, made up of
over 20 musical stars, recorded the
record "Do They Know It's Christ-
mas?". They donated the profits to
the Ethiopian effort.
"These events gave us the Zeit-
geist of 1984-85."
"Do any other events give us the
Zeitgeist of 1984-85?"

Van Halen's David Lee Roth temporarily parted the group after the al-
