ade in USA "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. 4!Open1ng 'Nici S F , 11, ' Z M'?f 3 , ngxrnnisnswwvaawiv- E' 'fl uuitniim ' ..i, ' afi4i"'il: ' -2 f "" ' .

Patriotism arouses America "Zeitgeist" "Zeitgeist???" "Yeah, Zeitgeist. A certain feeling." "A certain feeling of what?" "A certain feeling of the times." "Does Dundee have Zeitgeist?" "Sure," "Do Ida, Summerfield, and Blissfield have Zeitgeist too?" "Sure, but Dundee's Zeitgeist is much better." "What makes Dundee's Zeitgeist better?" "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 like gymnast Ma1'y Lou Retton and Iokingly placing a "For Sale" sign on the trou- blesome satelite are the astronauts of the Dis- covery. Campaigning hard in Texas are Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro. fit . Q ' i w li'551fl2 i'? . ""'E. af . L. 4-Q, four time gold medalist Carl Lewis, who were instant heroes. 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- tions. 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 1000 people. 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?" Opening!3
