THEME 9STUDENT LIFE
10 STUDENT LIFE DIVISIONweve
nife at Edina-East? Like a chemistry formula it took just the right elements to make our lives tick. While the classroom routine was often as uniform as the desks we sat in from hour to hour, other segments of our lives were not.
Laughter shared with friends at snack break, a game of charades at lunch, or a rowdie pepfest quickened our pace as the calendar pages flipped by. At other times, capturing a role in the school play or anticipating a night of dancing at Homecoming. Sweetheart, or Prom added bounce to our footsteps.
Weekends were another release from the formalities of the classroom. The hassles of homework were soothed with the tunes of a favorite album. Nights were often spent checking out the action from place to place: first a hockey game; next McDonalds: D.E.'s house; Coffeehouse; and back to Macs.
Other valuable ingredients to our lives were found along the youth group route. Trips such as the Hi-League retreat, the Young Life weekend at Castaway, or the P.F. trip to Colorado were breaks from the Edina scene.
Late night football games in parking lots. Sunday broomball tournaments, and spring softball teams all provided easy atmospheres for friendships to grow.

STUDENT LIFE DIVISION 11A Night For Lords And Ladies
Bomecoming '77 upheld
years of tradition with shades of change. A close vote by the student body resulted in twenty court members rather than the usual eighteen. Coronation, moved from the gym to the auditorium, held an extra elegance. After anxious moments on the edge of their seats, the crowd exploded with a rush of applause as Dan Trudeau and Molly Mork were chosen king
Volleyball, swimming, cross-country and soccer teams, as well as the football team participated in athletic contests throughout the week. Diligent student committees got things off the ground, making decisions on the theme, buttons, programs and the dance. Weeks of whispering and wondering were climaxed by "A Night For Lords and Ladies.” After dining at some of the Twin Cities'
finer restaurants, couples proceeded to the high school and crossed the drawbridge into an imaginary medieval setting. Dancing and socializing was complimented by the sound of the band Orion, hilighted by an unexpected saxophone solo by King Dan Trudeau. The Homecoming spirit continued, as many couples joined with friends and par-tied on into the night.
1) Assured that Coronation will run smoothly. Krissy Dale and John Mitchell preside as mistress and master of ceremonies. 2) Casting aside formalities, court members let loose and take in a football game. 3) Homecoming Court: Scott Hampson.

Making And Reliving Memories
he highlight of in-school Homecoming activities was undoubtedly the pep-fest. The crowds turned up in every imaginable organizational t-shirt, with each group offering a skit or a song to the court. Heads held a variety of hats in hopes of capturing honors in the hat contest. The senior boys showed their originality and agility in an enticing imitation of the Hornettes. appropriately called the ■‘Hornyettes.” It was this fun-filled hour that set the pace for the evening.
After weeks of chicken wire and paper mach6 for floats, classes and clubs displayed their enthusiasm as well as their "creation" along the parade route, between Wooddale school and the football field. Balloons and the
band helped rev-up the rowdies and fill the air with pre-game excitement. Surprised smiles and happy hugs were exchanged as former graduates relived I their high school days. Half-time found the winning float and court members circling the football field, with Molly and Dan cruising past the bleachers in a restored jeep. Boisterous fans helped boost the Hornets to a rousing victory, their first of the season Yet Homecoming 77 was much more than winning a football game or crowning a queen. More important than the pep-fests, parades and parties were the people who participated people who will remember it as a time bonded by spirit and united by friendship.
HOMECOMING li R1-'"1 elaxed and unrestricted, 1977-78 found the lives of Edina-East students heading back to the basics. Amidst the atmosphere of conformity, a struggle for individuality appeared, as some students avoided the latest trends while others could be found wearing four or five at a time. Even diets began to shift away from the usual junk, as students munched natural foods and drank liquid protein concoctions. Clothes, mainly casual, emphasized practicality as well as style. Cozy sweaters and warm smiles helped make this the year of the comfortables.
1) Displaying a variety of clothing, senior men sit casually, ready to scrutinize passing females. 2) Wearing the latest looks. Anne Le-mieux hopes to make headway in her tennis game. 3) Sophomore Jill Ryan pauses a moment in contemplation.

COMFORTABLES 17"Come Hear The
“Come to the Cabaret old chum. Life is a Cabaret ...”
mabaret 'll was full of life. Dressed in a black tux. Sue Jones opened the show with a unique interpretation of the Cabaret theme song. The first half of the concert featured selections ranging from Beethoven's Fifth. Symphony to Leroy Anderson's "Jazz Pizzicato.” in which the string section ''plucked” off the melody. During the intermission punch and cookies were served and then ... POW! — the concert seemed to come alive!
In a show entitled "Dances of the Decades.” orchestra members showed their versatility, proving they could dance as well as play. The charleston, the jitterbug and the hustle were but a few of the dances representing the various eras. Hammed-up and included as "timeless dances" were the cheek-to-cheek dance, the waltz and the polka.
Orchestra members spent two months of practice and preparation to make Cabaret, their big concert of the year and major fund-raiser, a success. Those in the audience who held tickets in the reserved section had a chance to have the "Silver Strings." a small group from the orchestra. play in their home.
All agreed that one of the hardest workers was senior Kathy Horovitz, choreographer of the dances. Regarding Cabaret 'll she commented. "I think it's the best concert we've ever put on. This is a young orchestra, so every year Cabaret should get better." As for this year, those who "came to the Cabaret" were undoubtedly glad they did.

18 CABARETMusic Play .
■ he third annual "Sleighbells and Noels” concert couldn't help but fill everyone with the spirit of Christmas. For after months of memorization and perspiration, the Edina-East choirs combined to put on a first-rate show. A show full of magic and fun, imagination and talent.
The concert began with a series of Latin and less-familiar numbers, all of which were well done. Throughout the evening, different choirs sang alone and together, sometimes around a fireplace on stage and sometimes even walking among the audience.
The mood was somewhat serious until after the intermission; then the traditional Christmas tunes began. Old favorites such as "Silver Bells.” "Winter Wonderland” and "White Christmas” brought loud applause as did many songs destined to become new favorites. "The Twelve Days After Christmas” by the East Side Singers was just one of several numbers that added humor to the evening.
Audience members were invited to join all of the choirs on stage for the finale. "And the Glory of the Lord” and "Hallelujah!” (both from Handel's "The Messiah”) demonstrated the range and power of these talented singers.
"Sleighbells and Noels” offered something for everyone. For the choirs it was an opportunity to display their talent. For choir alumni, the concert and choir party held a chance to relive their high-school days. And for the audience, "Sleigh-bells and Noels” offered a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

20 POPS CONCERTI 25th
B silver year for the Edina-East Concert Band, the 1978 Pops Concert paid tribute to the talented musicians and exciting productions of the past twenty-five years. It was time for band members to drop everything and dedicate themselves to making Pops ’78 the best ever.
Try-outs, held at Elledge’s, began before Christmas, with parts being cast on the basis of singing ability and personality. Weeks of rehearsals followed, held three or four nights a week for four to six hours. Band members choreographed the numbers. parents helped with set construction and costumes were bought, made, borrowed or rented. Conductor Bob Elledge also dressed for the occasion in a sparkling silver suitcoat.
The concert opened with "Telephone Hour." followed by such classics as "1812 Overture." "Jazz March." "Jericho" and Chuck Elledge’s arrangement of "Star Wars." The Dance Band also drew thunderous applause, featuring Chris Volpe on trumpet and Dave Bjerken on tenor sax.
After intermission, a character named Mugsy snuck across the darkened stage, determined to steal the show. His conscience got the better of him. however, as he relived great moments from past Pops. Old favorites from "How to Succeed in Business." "Damn Yankees." "Marne.” "Sweet Charity" and "Applause" combined with the enthusiasm. talent and unending energy of the band to add extra sparkle to the silver anniversary of Pops.
And so twenty-five years of Pops were over; although faces had changed year after year, the feelings remained the same. Senior Nancy Jones summed it up. "Rehearsals got to be a pain. I began to feel like I lived at school. But the concerts and the parties made up for all the hassles. It was sad when it ended. It was over too fast."
POPS CONCERT 21Bhe curtain went up and the
play began. Where was director Nancy Anderson? Most likely wandering around the halls, for she rarely watched the performances. Rather she took interest in the rehearsal process, describing her favorite kinds of plays as those designed for children, with loose scripts and little attempt to be realistic.
Because of Edina-East's reputation for putting on some of the top high-school theatre productions in Minnesota, Nancy received weekly calls for advice on how to set up a successful theatre program. She credited the "neat, fun and dedicated kids" for making her job easier. They in turn described her as "a lot of fun ... like one of the kids ... a person who really has her act together."
1) Nancy Anderson demonstrates a model stage to Jim Horovltz. 2) The faces of Dawn Ringllng, Linda Hauskins and Tammy Borgeson express the fun and excitement ot performing 3) Brian Davies.

Mother Goose On The
whirl of make-believe and fantasy. The World of Mother Goose let loose as Edina-East’s fall production. Because of its partial funding by a grant from the State Arts Board, author John B. Davidson and choreographer Carol Lipschultz were able to work with and adjust the script to the cast. Song and dance numbers to twisted nursery rhymes and tangled children's tunes resulted, performed in small groups by the large cast.
The cast was chosen by director Nancy Anderson, with three times as many people trying out as parts available. Teachers Sandy Grigg, Pat Coleman and Tom Beaver made appearances in "cameo roles." Rehearsals, held five days a week for six weeks, were spent trying to fit the bits and pieces together. A disappointment for the cast was discovering they would not be reimbursed for the free tickets they had given to activity card holders. This presented a financial problem, since the fall production's profits were expected to pay for the plays put on during the rest of the year.
The play opened with a boy wandering in. expecting to see a story about Mother Goose. He suddenly found himself on stage, lost in a world with rules and people he didn't understand. Strange and colorful characters constantly tricked and confused him. as well as the audience. Nancy Anderson described the underlying theme as a picture of life; although a person may know right from wrong and follow the rules, the world still seems to play unfair tricks.
Although reactions to the play varied. most agreed it was crazy. Some members of the cast added that while it was fun to do. "the performances lacked the energy needed to completely pull it off." Lynn Thor-vilson, alias Mother Goose summed up the cast's feelings; "The play was hard work but fun to perform. Somehow everything seemed worthwhile when everyone laughed."

dmitting that he has been both complimented and criticized for his method of directing. Del Fredrickson described himself as "a hard task-master, a stickler for detail and memorization.” While other directors have concentrated on mood development through sets or costumes, his productions have tended to be pictures of reality. His characters have been known to smoke, swear or do whatever is essential to keep things realistic. His techniques have evolved from experience and learning from his mistakes.
Del began directing the school’s plays in 1950. the same year it opened. His directing duties ceased in 1967 when he became student council advisor, but resumed in 1975 as he assumed responsibility for the March play, annually presented in Thearte-in-the-Round.
When asked about this type of production, he replied. "Theatre-in-the-Round has always been more intense. If the audience feels involved and becomes totally emerged, forgetting that the characters are actually their classmates, then the play is a success."
PLAYS 23hether in organized youth groups or informal Bible studies. many Edina students continued to turn to religion to enrich their lives and find answers to their problems. While a few simply followed the crowd, most were sincere in attempts to strengthen their faith. For everyone, however, these experiences offered a chance to laugh as well as to pray.
Every Sunday night, an average of 300 sophomores, juniors and seniors crowded into the basement of Colonial Church. The event? Pilgrim Fellowship, of course, an evening spent singing, listening, learning, reflecting and joining hands in prayer. The popularity of P.F. was undoubtedly due to its leader. Mark Wick-strom. When Mark spoke, people listened. for his messages were easy to relate to and thought-provoking.
P.F. stressed discipleship. described by one member as "the spreading of God’s word as it’s been shown to us. trying to live like Christ and sharing our faith with others." P.F. cabinet, a group of thirty young advisors, met each Monday night to learn, share, discuss and pray. There were no cabinet officers this year, with everyone contributing ideas to help P.F. run smoothly. Each cabinet member also led a D-group of four to five people and helped supervise the P.F. projects: selling calenders, the Christmas tree lot. the Colorado trip and the mission trips ranging from Hibbing to Jamaica.
1) Mark Wickstrom, along with Tom Lomloux, Larry Schroeder and Mark Murphy, leads the P.F. crowd in song. 2) Young people gather at tables and listen to a performer share his faith through song at Crossroads Coffeehouse 3) Feeding each other pudding. Joe Hayes and Kathy Carter are initiated in a Young Life skit.
oung Life, an international non-denominational Christian group, attracted sixty to ninety members to the Wednesday night meetings held in various homes. Besides a chance to sing and learn among friends, members took part in hilarious and often embarrassing "initiations.” Memorable retreats such as Castaway, promoted more good times and lasting friendships.
Eric Hansen, one of twelve leaders. commented: "Edina is unique in that so many kids get involved in neat Christian activities. It's exciting to be a part of Young Life, getting to know kids and spending time with them. We hope to show them that the Christian way of life is the most exciting, the most meaningful and the most fun way to go."

1) Al Wohr and some of his pals read and discuss selected verses from the Bible. 2) Faces focus on Mark Wickstrom who describes P.F. as "... an atmosphere in which teenagers can hear the claims of Christ and His call for discipleship in their own terms. We hope to give them opportunities, situations and places to work out their own discipleship " 3) Stove "Bobo" Burns attempts to clean up the coffee house counter, receiving no help from Phil Pauly, Liz Rouner and Tammy Moore. 4) Sophomore Terri Moody relaxes with Cory Winter from Edina-West at the Hi-League Youth Center.
ni-League, sponsored by
Mount Olivet Lutheran Church, seemed to offer something for everyone who attended on Sunday nights. Life-style groups, potluck suppers, senior discussion groups and athletic games were just a few of the possibilities for 9-12 graders. Hi-Leaguers also spent time in the summer as volunteer counselors and work staffers at Cathedral of the Pines Camp in Lutsen, Minnesota.
Many other churches also drew Edina-East students to youth groups, including Edina Baptist. Good Shepherd and Christ Presbyterian.
St. Stephen's Episcopal Church offered Crossroads Coffeehouse on Saturday nights, a place to drop in to listen to performers or talk with friends. Eighteen student staff members worked hard, staying late into the night cleaning up doughnut crumbs and coffee cups after sharing their faith at the late night Agape service.
ible studies were also a big part of many students' lives, offering a chance to grow and participate on a smaller scale. For early risers. Campaigners, a spin-off of Young Life for junior and senior girls and a Thursday morning Bible study open to anyone gathered once a week before school. Pilgrim's Progress. better known as Grim's Gress formed separate groups for girls of each grade. Al’s Pals, for boys only, was led by Al Wehr. Both Grim's Gress and Al's Pals met weekly to discuss scripture, share views and socialize.
The involvement of religion at Edina-East came not in a sudden burst but rather in a gradual participation. Youth groups helped students become more aware of themselves and more considerate of others.
YOUTH GROUPS 25In The News
rom the international level to here at home, issues in the news were as varied as the people who made them. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat made unprecedented efforts in his search for peace in the Mid-East. Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 25 years on the throne with a Silver Jubilee, President Carter, worked intently on such things as a National Energy Plan and ever rising inflation, psychopath David Berkowitz, alias Son of Sam. gunned down six New York youths.
Bert Lance resigned his post as budget director after allegations of shaky banking ethics, and finally, long time Minnesota Senator Hubert H. Humphrey succumbed to cancer, leaving behind him an amazing political career.
Problems weren't only national in scope. The weather showed its unpredictability in early September when seven inches of rain fell on the Twin Cities, flooding highways and basements alike. A struggle over the fate of a high voltage powerline
raged in central Minnesota, while here in Edina school administrators and parents tried to cut costs and battle the 7 million dollar deficit which threatened to close many schools and greatly curtail extracurricular activities.
These were a few of the people, events and problems that emerged in 1977 and early 1978.

CURRENT EVENTS 27Weekends
Made For . .
s the bell rang loudly at 2:50 on Friday afternoon, the weekend began. For most, the weekend was a time to take a breather from school’s studies, relax with friends and family, and pursue individual pastimes. Favorite activities were as varied as a potpouri of tastes.
However, weekends weren't always free time and bliss. Aspiring athletes often had Saturday morning practices to look forward to. usually with some regret. Members of the part-time working crowd found it profitable, though sometimes tiring, to rack up weekend hours at jobs.
One couldn't live in Edina for very long without noticing the beautiful parks and wooded areas that lay so close by. Strolling around Lake Harriet. ice skating at Cornelia, and playing touch football with friends were just a few ways to spend weekend leisure time.

The weekend rolled around quickly. In the back of our minds we knew that the Comp, term paper was due Monday, no exceptions. Saturday was spent at the Edina Library in a last minute flourish of rough drafts and o-rmgs. The six weeks alloted for this task meant nothing by the time Sunday was upon us.

Pressures. hassles and gloomy skies often brought an overwhelming desire to fade into oblivion. When clouds passed and problems cleared, smiles won out as students returned to their usual spirits.
Days of the week had a particular influence on moods. Especially Monday, that first day of the week when things usually went just a little rougher. Temporarily forgetting a locker combination. realizing that homework had slipped through the weekend unfinished and feeling unprepared for the week that lay ahead, one could only bear down and look forward to Friday.
When Friday finally did arrive, cries of T.G.I.F. resounded, as students found rowdy relief in pepfests, making plans for the weekend. and the 2:50 bell.

■ he calender turned and February arrived, bringing the excitement of SNO-DAZE to warm the chilly winter months. It was time to break the routine, push aside thoughts of homework and study the effects of Valentine’s Day on the subject of love.
The SNO-DAZE events couldn’t help but fill everyone with the Valentine’s spirit. Valentines delivered in homeroom, lunchtime wrist-wras-tling matches and after-school Olympic competitions made the week fly by. Red, white and blue carnations, which symbolized love, friendship or ”1 want to get to know you." brought smiles, wondering and wishful thinking.
Whigrean promoted "button day" once again, with a few girls actually keeping their buttons all day. This wasn't easy when guys turned on the charm in hopes of getting the most buttons. Kiss-o-gram fever reached epidemic proportions with groups of seniors interrupting classes to deliver the hilarious and often embarassing messages. Cupid’s arrows flew as girls schemed and dreamed of ways to ask their current crush to the Sweetheart Dance. Friday morning pepfest the SNO-QUEEN and KING were revealed and Katie Kelley and Tom Kelly reigned the rest of the day. Awards, dances and cheers entertained the court and psyched the student body for the big night ahead. Whether couples went "just as friends" or with romance in mind, the dance, held at the Women's Club, climaxed the Sweetheart activities. The 1978 SNO-DAZE may have ended, but many new friendships had just begun.

Edina continued to grow to a population of around 49.000. people basically down-to-earth but constantly subject to a rampage of semi-malicious rumors. Yet Edina life seemed to make the accusations of snobbery worthwhile. While also a center of activity and business. Edina's beauty could be found throughout its parks, lakes and 212 miles of city
streets. Students received an excellent education from a well-educated faculty, contributing to the fact that 85 percent of Edina's seniors annually continued on to college.
A low crime rate resulted in above average police protection, as well as many traffic tickets, a fact to which many young people could testify. Fortunately, the police were lenient in enforcing the more obscure of Minnesota’s laws, including the fact that men's and women’s underwear could not legally be hung on the line at the same time, or the illegality of driving red automobiles, or the law that declared bathtubs without legs against the law.
Excellent libraries, restaurants, entertainment centers and shopping malls, including Southdale. the world’s oldest enclosed shopping mall, all contributed to the assets of Edina ... not to mention 4 country clubs. 3 liquor stores. 21 churches. 171 miles of sewers, a reputation as ‘‘the beauty capital of the world", an income per capita consistently rated within the nation's top five ... what more could a community ask for? But one question still remains: did these people deserve to have their cake and eat it too?
1) Expensive and exclusive. Edina's Point of France has become the Twin Cities posh place to live. 2) The Grange Hall, once a site of town meetings, now stands in the Frank Tupa Memorial Park. 3) Edina’s natural beauty surrounds the Browndalc Avenue bridge, located where the Edina Mill once stood.

nee upon a time there was a high school named Edina-Morningside, one of the first high schools built in Minnesota after World War II, opening in 1949 to be exact. One of its major claims to fame was a feature in the New York Times depicting its successful all-night graduation party. The story set an example for other schools to follow throughout the nation.
In 1966 the school became Edina High School. The Hornets began to
capture all kinds of athletic honors, including an unbeaten state record of three consecutive state basketball championships, not to mention a winning streak of 69 games.
In 1972 Edina split into east and west districts, thus giving the school its third name. Edina-East. Although a four-lane highway was the only physical separation between the two territories. Edina-East and Edina-West formed separate worlds, bridged by bonds of friendship and
rivalry. Romances thrived amidst the scores of inter-school friendships. promoted by youth groups, athletic events and parties.
For both schools. 1977-78 was a year bursting with spirit. East-West sporting events brought swarms of Hornets and packs of Cougars hoping to cheer their teams to victory. While each school claimed to be number one, both agreed that ‘‘East or West. Edina's best!”

he action began quickly; with a crack of the gun. a swift kick of the ball, or a whistle from the referee. With 24 different teams, the strong appeal of sports, whether to spectator or participant, left its mark in our daily lives.
With participation came practice — and more practice. Constant effort paid its dues in valuable ways. The athlete learned the give and take of life; the need for the individual as well as the group effort. The mental well-being of a team member was improved as friendships, leadership qualities, and pride in one's self grew.
The athlete knew his greatest test in competition. To do one’s best, to win graceful' or lose without the need for excuse excercised true sportsmanship.
Rising and falling with each wave of excitement were the fans. In a flury of green and white. Edina-East pledged its support in a spirited voice. Along with the Cheerleaders and Hornettes came the Rick and Roddy cheering section and its symbols for success. "E" caps, newspapers. and number one fingers.

SPORTS DIVISION 37■ fter rigorous practice sessions during August, the Hornet Football Team looked forward into the future, unsuspecting the fate that lay before them in upcoming games. A disheartening division standing final of 1 and 8 proved that East was least; this year anyway.
Giving the gridsmen a big push into the season were Coaches Ron Kostellz, Robert Savre, Richard San-deen, Rod Youngdahl, and Mike Patera. These dedicated men shaped a group of novice individuals into a
touchdown by receiving a pass from Junior quarterback Greg Olson and winning the game 7-0.
The teams final game was against arch rival Edina-West. This was probably the most exciting game of the season with the bleachers of both sides filled. The Hornets overpowered the Cougars throughout the game, but West got most of the breaks.

Unlike most teams in the state, the Hornets consisted of mainly younger players with little experience. An onlooker might say the team had a bad year but with such varsity inexperience, the Hornets didn't do so bad. Five of eight games were lost by only a touchdown.
As the season rolled along. Homecoming came up. The Hornets maintained a 21 game Homecoming winning streak by devouring Eisenhower. Mike Fallon scored the sole

Regular season play began with losses from Burnsville. Kennedy, and Lincoln, but for the rest of the season the Hornets dished out defeats to every other team they met. This year was truly the year of the overtime. The play-off game between Minnetonka proved that. By the end. the score was 1-1. It took six overtimes to defeat the Skippers with Walker Humphries kicking in the final goal. Quite a number of games ended in overtime situations.

Skills were emphasized to the youngest of players enabling them the chance to become the champions of tomorrow.
When freshmen Maura Bjerken
and Anne Lemleux stepped onto the courts it was a triumph for the team. After losing nine of last year’s Varsity players, three were left to carry on the team's reputation as winners. Anne and Maura were two of the nine new players to fill the vacant spots. Seniors. Carrie Hedberg and
those equal in rank. Although many quality players were turned away they continued to play on their own and master their skills for future tryouts. Dedication was prominent within every member which added to the success of the team. This dedication was shown through long hours of practices and cals. Practices included running the track, various calisthenics, not to mention Coach Greer's home-made cals. "Father Abrahams." that could be done at banquets as well as on the courts.
A non-conference match against St. Paul Academy, rated number one in the state, proved to be both the Varsity’s and the J.V.’s toughest competitors. Minnetonka created a

Ann Nelson returned to the team, after a one year leave of absence. Susan Hield also came to the rescue to uphold the honor of Edina-East. Captain Carrie Nelson, after reaching the peak of her season, became quite ill and had to forfeit the game due to her illness. The Varsity team, consisting of twelve players, had depth and ability which wiped out the usual “star of the team" cliche.
August tryouts presented a problem for Ted Greer, the Varsity coach and Pat Coleman, the J.V. coach, as well as the players themselves. Fifty people were competing for only twenty-seven original positions. Because of the closeness in ability, the coaches added five more positions to the J.V. ladder to accomodate
hazard for the Varsity, but the J.V. team leaped the net with victory to maintain a 9-0 win loss record. Because of the Varsity’s loss. Minnetonka became first in the Red Division with Edina-East finishing in second place.
Although it was disappointing to not reach state competition Edina-East did not go away unrecognized. They fought the battle of being young, and established a highly respectable third place in Section Six play.

As teams they struggled to win. as individuals they labored to beat themselves. Straining themselves at the sound of the gun. forgetting how fast or how far. the runners only concentrated on the finish line ahead.
The boys worked together as a team, but were disappointed with the final product. After working for months in the hot summer sun and the chilly fall mornings they were ready to take on challenges. Putting both feet forward they came up with a disenchanting two and six win loss record. Coach Ed Hendricks prodded the team along, teaching the
skills of running long distances. The team members provided the spirit and carried it proudly into competition. With these two ingredients the team was a success in itself.
It was a year of rebuilding, finding out who had endurance, who had strength, and who had desire to become a part of the cross-country team. In the seasons to come, as long as the up and coming runners enjoyed the challenge of running, the boy’s cross-country team would be rich in experience and loyalty. With these qualities, the team would excel, possibly to become number one in state.
Youth, what a divine quality. The girl's cross-country team consisted of many seventh and eighth graders. They flooded the team with their

A record of three wins and five losses did not reflect their success. Times were improved considerably with Captain Kathy Miller holding the school record of 12:15. Kathy, one of the star runners on the team, had the terrible misfortune of injuring her knee and was out for a few weeks during the season, which resulted in some competitive losses.

These practices were just one of the new aspects of the 1977 swim team. Other major changes included new coaches-Julie Benz, a former Edina-East swimmer, and Shad Bennett, AAU coach.

The closeness of the team was reflected at every meet. The team's spirit was overwhelming. Each member was concerned about the personal success of every other member. Also, coaches Bennett and Benz were always encouraging, offering helpful criticism and support to each member. Moreover, this year community interest was at its highest, with capacity crowds at many meets.

nthusiasm was contagious at
all of the boys' gymnastic meets. After each Edina-East routine, whether excellent or poor, a roar of applause went up from the rest of the team. Every home meet drew large audiences from both the students and the parents.
Due to all of the time spent working out. the team grew very close. Friendships between seniors, juniors. and sophomores were common occurences. These friendships helped to unify the team and to improve the ability level of the gymnasts.
The effort of the coaches and the captains helped the team develop to its full potential. This year the job of
place in the regional meet and fourth place in the state meet. This was the best the team has ever achieved.
Gymnastics is a special sport. Each gymnast competes not only as a member of the team, but as an individual. Several individuals were outstanding. Co-captain Brian Meeker was quite a famous gymnast. This year he took first all-around in both the regional and the state meet. Some of his routines were featured on the six and ten o’clock news. Also. Meeker’s face became a familiar sight on the front page of the sports section. In addition. several other members competed successfully at the regional

coaching was divided up among three men. Each coach worked with only two pieces of equipment, making it possible to help the guys individually. Rick Cossette. Mark Howell and head coach Bob Hoecherl were the three 1977 coaches. Being coach of both Edina-East and Edina-West. Bob Hoecherl was forced to divide his time between the rival teams. Co-captains Steve Klos and Brian Meeker proved to be invaluable to the team. They instilled the desire to work into each member.
The success of the team reflected all of the hard work each gymnast invested. Their overall record was five wins and two loses. But. more importantly. Edina-East took first
meet. Matt O'Donahue took second place on the parallel bars; Steve Klos took third place on the rings; and Stu Steinkamp took fifth place on the high bar.
The payoff for all the members' time and effort spent at gymnastics was both in the winning and in the development of close friendships. The success of the Varsity Gymnastics Team aroused a deep and possibly permanent interest in gymnastics at Edina-East.

East beat Fridley by a wide margin of 10 points to make them winners. Jason Velgersdyke led the scoring with 19 points. In their first playoff game, the Hornets met Mound and won by one point. With one second showing on the clock. Dave Eischens tipped the ball in off a shot from
To end the season. East lost to Jefferson by a shocking score of 66-39. This loss ended their chance to travel further in the Playoffs, and their hopes to be State Champions. Despite this loss, the returning members are ready and looking forward to winning again in 1979.

est meet was the only victory of the season. Rod Youngdahl agreed that "There’s not enough pre-wrestling training before high school.” He said that there isn't a good jr. high wrestling program, which made it difficult for the Edina-East Grapplers and coaches to equally compete with other teams. Basically, the 77-78 season was a "rebuilding year." Numerous members of the team were new and had no wrestling experience.

wimmers take your marks, get set. go!” A familiar phrase echoed throughout the pool area before every heat. This was a phrase that sank deep into the minds of the Edina-East Boys Swimming team.

68 GIRLS’ GYMNASTICSrowing was the key to the
1978 Girls' Gymnastics season. This year, as always, the gymnastics team lost several of its members to Hornettes, hence the team was dominated by underclassmen. There were several new and talented but inexperienced junior high members on the team. Each gymnast grew and improved, making their season relatively successful. This year's team was classified mainly as a building team.
Ex-University of Minnesota gymnast Kiki Schroeder was the team
coach. Kiki was often helped by one of the boys’ gymnastics team coaches, Mark Howell. Together they put the team through long and strenuous workouts. Each gymnast was encouraged to work on all the equipt-ment, so all-around improvement was continuous.
Competition between team members was more prevelent this year. Each gymnast worked hard for themselves and for a higher place on the team. This competitive feeling was both good and bad. The girls worked extra hard, due to all the competition.
but they lacked a sense of team closeness because of the tension hanging in the air.
The school gave the team very little support or encouragement. The audiences were composed mainly of the gymnasts' parents or members of the boys' gymnastic team. This lack of support made it more difficult for the team to get really psyched up before their meets.
Despite these problems, the team's final record was 6 wins and 4 losses. Several of the meets were very close, often resulting in victory or defeat de-
termined by .02 of a point. One of their best meets was against Richfield. Every gymnast was psyced for the meet, hence they won by a landslide of 13 points.
Captain Pinky Behning helped the team in and out of practice. She helped organize things, like dinners at My Pi or breakfasts at different homes. Toward the end of the season the team rented a section of Howard Johnson’s Motel to celebrate their victories.

Stomach aches, being fired up. butterflies, and nervousness are just a few of the feelings an athlete experiences before a game or meet. These feelings usually continue into the competition but with some, the tenseness is lost and all that counts is the game.

71 GET PSYCHEDVICTORY OF DEFEAT
Winning leaves a competitor in a state of elation; making him feel as if he should share his ecstasy with everyone. The opposite emotion is the agony of losing. If an athlete's performance isn't up to par, a loss can hurt very much, because he knows he might have won with more preparation.
Emotion preparation, or getting “psyched up” is an important part of any athlete’s pre-game warm-up. It may consist of ”cranking the tunes,” concentrating on the game ahead, or just being rowdy with friends. A little adrenaline flowing through one's body will almost always spark a fire.
Whatever the sport, no matter who the athlete, there are only two ways about it; the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.

ust as a young child turns inquisitive eyes to his parents and asks "Why?” there lives within us the desire to know, to understand — a need to learn. Hours spent in the classroom from day to day slowly opened our eyes to the wide world of knowledge.
How did we learn? As we worked for our diplomas, each of us followed different talents and interests. Study habits were as varied as our personalities. While spme played the game of chance with grades, others realized the importance of them for college and career.
Crawling through another History chapter or struggling through one last Algebra problem, we often questioned the worth of study. But learning was not only gained from a book or term paper. It was acquired in new-born respect for one's teachers and surroundings. The classroom atmosphere often provided a chance for friendships to grow.
Whatever value we place upon our academic lives, the school day influenced our character and taught us about ourselves. Our four years of education at Edina-East was an important chapter as we learned about our world.

To Play Is To Pay
The 1977-78 school year marked the beginning and the end of the activity fee for Edina-East.
The fee was instated because of the severe budget cuts that had to be made. The academic area had been hit the
hardest with teacher cuts and increased class sizes. Complaints were made that too much money was spent on athletics while the level of education supposedly decreased.
After much discussion a uniform fee of thirty five dollars was established to be paid by all students involved in any extracurricular activities.
In grades seven through twelve. 1200 activity cards were purchased — 54% of the student body. Because concert and play performances were reimbursed, there was doubt as to whether any money was made.
On December 12th the Minnesota State School Board declared this fee illegal. The fees were kept for the duration of the year but were to be discontinued the following year. The question was whether to charge legal fees (fees on equipment and transportation) or to cut some activities. This caused the problem of deciding which activities would be kept and which would be canceled. A new alternative had to be found to combat the budget problems.
ADMINISTRATION 75rinking, dogs, and dunderheads .. These were the three dreaded D's of an offi-
cer's job according to Marc Reigel, who spent his summers as a park policeman at Lake Harriet. Joining the force just for a good summer job. he found that about 99% of the visitors to the lake were basically '•nice' people, there were dog owners who let their dogs off the leash, and couldn’t understand why they recieved a ticket; there were consumers of "questionable beverages". which Officer Reigel poured out; and there were the dunderheads. drivers who parked in noparking zones, expecting to be let off scot-free.
Needing the ability to tolerate the teeming masses of people. Marc found his job as a high-school teacher an invaluable asset in coping with offenders. It helped in racial incidents. auto accidents, even being mauled by a Black Labrador. His job ranged from giving directions, artificial resuscitation, and of course the citations.
Even though it was hard being a cop at times, the job still had its advantages and pleasureable moments. Half-price sausage, mushroom. and green olive pizzas from B’s, the best popcorn in Minneapolis from the concession stand, the concerts at the bandshell. and maybe, most importantly, the people who understood why they received a ticket, and then said thank-you. all made the job worthwhile.
What did Mr. Reigel like best about his job ? In his words. "Helping to focus bad eggs in the right direction."

Achieve Is To Learn
"Accomplishing: doing what
you set out to do. and doing it up to your potential, because if you are satisfied with it. then others have a better chance of accepting it." Laurie Kotzen did. and won an award from the National Council of English Teachers. Only one of many student achievers in our school, their list of accomplishments ranged from the Good Citizen, awarded to Kent Fredrickson by the Daughters of the American Revolution. to the feature editor of Metro News. David Harrison, and everybody who submitted to the student newspaper, and had their work published.

like it because I'm not under any pressure. I work at my own speed, and there aren’t any tests." explained Debbie Metcalfe about Family Designed Learning. This program enabled students to design their own courses. FDL could be substituted for any class except math or science.
After registering for FDL. the student drew up a contract of goals he would like to attain, had the contract approved by his parents and advisors, and decided whether the grading method would be Pass Fail or A through F. Students worked in the comfortable atmosphere of room 123 with its bean bag chairs, couches and green plants.
Is there life after high school? This was the question students were forced to contend with after nearly twelve years of school. The Career Learning Center was equipped to help them do just that. The center had many materials, including catalogs and pamphlets on hundreds of colleges in the U.S. and abroad. It also contained a computer terminal which took student input based on likes, dislikes, interests and abilities, and then fed back information on careers ranging from atomic physicists to garbage collectors.
Rod Schmidt, Associate Dean for Career Development, expressed enthusiasm for the center. "It has developed far beyond our expectations," The center’s success was due in part to the twenty parent volunteers who helped students use the computer and locate materials, allowing counselors to spend more time counseling.

■ es, Bob is my brother!" Though hard to believe the similarities between the two. Bob and Lowell, could not be over looked. While trying to outclass each other, both matched wits with equal strength.
The first two out of three McCarthy boys, the brothers stuck together through thick and thin. Only separated by the army, they attended the same high school, and were the first two boys to letter in two sports as freshmen. They performed together in the senior class play, attended the same college, and ended up teaching at the same high school.
Putting each other down throughout the school day. it would seem the two were at odds. In reality, they're as close as a "belt and a buckle."
Efforts to break the team apart began when the brothers applied for jobs at Edina-East. The policy prohibiting married couples from working at the same school brought some doubts from the administration. The problem was easily solved when the two brothers explained. "We shared the same room when we were small, but we're definately not married."
80 SOCIAL STUDIESTo Be Interested Is To Learn
The main goal of the Social Science Department was to prepare the student for situations which they encountered every day and to make the students more aware of the events that molded our present country. Many students considered their Social Studies classes valuable, for the achievement of their future goals. Thanks to their classroom style, the teachers held the student’s interest by including different group discussions; such as mock elections, stock speculations. and debates. These extra activities made the classes more interesting and fun.
Realizing that student participation and involvement is a formidable task, we credit our faculty with a job well-done.

SOCIAL STUDIES 81ow captains make sure your row is participating." Those who have heard this before realize the uniqueness of Robert Savre.
Between August and June. Mr. Savre spends a great deal of time at school. In addition to being a dedicated teacher, he was also the coach for football and basketball. Although coaching was an important job. it never interfered with his teaching. His goal was to prepare his students for the challenges they would meet in college.
He accomplished a lot in his classes with his good sense of humor. In Mr. Savre's, one never knew what to expect next. In order to break the monotony of the everyday lecture, he took advantage of humorous situations but not at someone elses expense. He did this to "keep people on their toes." One incident remembered by students was Mr. Savre's attempts to catch fifty dimes flipped from his elbow to his hand.
Mr. Savre had very high standards and expected a lot from his students. Many have returned from college to tell him that they felt he had prepared them well. Although his students worked hard, they enjoyed his class.
After a long year at school, the summer gives Mr. Savre time to work on his cabin and enjoy his favorite activities which include: golfing. water skiing, sailing, and swimming.

Experience Is To Learn
"To experience is to learn."
This seemed to be the theme of this year’s science classes, best accomplished through labs.
In Human Physiology, dissecting cats and minks caused so many turned-stomachs, that "a girl usually chose a guy for a partner." With ten teachers in the department, there were many different courses to choose from, and all involved something interesting. Astronomy held an after school, on the roof, viewing of a partial eclipse of the sun. Discovering for oneself how the natural world really worked, the science curriculum enticed students to learn more on the subject.
84 SCIENCE1) The climax approaches as anxious physics students await the outcome of the experiment. 2) Graphs and scales tend to confuse Linda Quinn who calls on Mr. Rlckabaugh to interpret them 3) After school viewing ses -sions provide Dave Spear with a chance to see a partial eclipse first hand.
Mil right ladies and gentlemen, let's schlepp along now. I'm not doing this for my health." Swansonisms such as those made classes with Jay Swanson more fun. His students appreciated the patience he displayed while explaining endlessly complicated chemistry formulas. "You needn't understand it. just do it" seemed to be the only answer available to some problems, and the students appreciated his honesty. Many times repetition was the key to understanding, and he was more than willing to say it again, and again, and again ...
Mr. Swanson's easy going manner kept the class atmosphere relaxed and made it easier to learn. There was never a dull moment as he paced back and forth, around the lab table, to the window ledge where he would blow off pencil shavings and prop up his feet, only to jump down seconds later and begin the cycle all over again. His sense of humor was always apparent especially when fits of laughter would cause him to leave the room to regain his composure.
Mr. Swanson likes teaching but he feels that for all the time he puts into it. it can be rather unrewarding at times. "If the students are cooperative and willing to learn, it becomes a very rewarding experience; otherwise it just becomes my job.”
His sharp, clean cut appearance seemed, at times, to be the most orderly thing in the class, especially when students brought in doughnuts. cakes, etc.
Even though the students were continually learning new concepts, did anyone ever find out "who struck John?"
SCIENCE 85Bhe story opens in Czechoslovakia with the birth of a baby named Renate. Before she was eight, the war forced her family to move to Germany.
As she grew, her strong interest in her studies and education made life during the war bearable. At fifteen she moved from Germany to Burgundy, France and stayed with a host family. At this time Renate spoke no French. She was forced to learn quickly and was speaking fluently by the end of high school. At twenty-four, she married and also began a career of teaching languages. Problems began when Mrs. Stefan's husband was offered a job at the U. of M. It was hard for Renate to leave her family behind in Europe. Their life in America was hard at first because neither she nor her husband spoke English.
Two years after they were settled in their home. Mr. Stefan was offered a job in West Germany. After the peaceful years in the U.S., it was hard for them to live so close to the Iron Curtain. Frequently they heard shots and read reports of innocent families being killed. It was something that Renate could not live with. So when her husband was offered a job back in Minneapolis, they jumped at the opportunity. Shortly after. Renate received a job at Edina High School teaching French.
Because of her past experiences. Mrs. Stefan is one who really appreciates the freedom that America has to offer.

But whenever it was. it was always under the watchful eye of Treffle Daniels. Table talk would subside as he strolled by. ready to help anyone who needed it. Mr. Daniels felt that that was the most important part of being a librarian-giving service to the students.
He found his work enjoyable because every time he helped a student. he learned something new himself. He also did a wide variety of jobs that constantly kept him busy. To him the most frustrating thing was saying to a student. "We can’t help you." There are just some things our library does not have.
Mr. Daniels previously taught at Concord and has been the librarian here for nine years. It was quite a change from knowing his sixth graders so well and then coming to the upper division and knowing very few of the 1200 kids who frequently came to the library.
Mr. Daniels enjoys reading and is also an enologist (winemaker). He is writing his family history, spends time at his cabin up north and likes to pick berries.
"I have to have a good sense of humor with a job like this because of all the feedback I get from the students." Mr. Daniels said.
Of course the library would not have been the same without it's great assistants: Mrs. Lossing, Mrs. Jacobson and Mrs. Stubbs. They carried out many of Mr. Daniels' ideas and made the library run smoothly.

To Create Is To Learn
nwo newly remodeled shops in the Industrial Arts department provided students with the latest in equipment to enhance their woodcrafting and metalworking skills. Students crafted a variety of projects ranging from small clocks and three-door cabinets to the big worksheds that were sold to the public to provide an extra source of income for purchasing tools.
Although the shops were located in virtually the same area as before, the change from last year was remarkable. Switching from good, but dated, to new totally efficient work areas and machinery, the remodeling job provided the best possible in facilities.

Hale Mackereth, appropriately nicknamed. "Mr. Mack," was one of the most active Industrial Arts teachers in the school. His diverse activities ranged from devouring sausage and pepperoni pizza (with extra cheese and green olives.) to working part-time as a sexton for Christ Presbyterian Church
Known for his love of clocks, he also liked sailing and building sailboats. making furniture for his home, and spending time with his wife and ten-year-old daughter. Mr. Mackereth enjoyed teaching, and getting involved in this year's projects. such as fiberglass canoes, and laminated bows and arrows, all created in the two new shops.
Also known for being an easygoing guy. students appreciated Mack's knack of treating them like equals — real people who had feelings, too. His ability to stay cool in tense situations was also highly regarded.
HOME EC AND INDUSTRIAL ARTS 91Bhe year is 1967. The place. Edina High School. Four foot eleven inch Pacy Erck walks down the hall in her green and white pleated cheerleading uniform. The ever present hall monitors, stationed throughout the corridors, check her pass to make sure everything is in order. The girls stand in groups and discuss the latest gossip. Slacks forbidden, they talk about who got sent home because their skirt was too far above the knee or what the plans were for the weekend.
As usual a large bunch of kids are planning a picnic or a trip to Taylor's Falls. Those invited decide which dress they're going to wear to the party that evening. Coke and popcorn will serve as the popular mun-chies as they dance the Waltz and the Lindy.
"Of course there are obvious differences between then and now. but things are basically the same." explained Pacy Erck. Graduating with her class of 872 in 1967. Miss Erck never thought she'd be back eleven years later — this time as a teacher. She was excited to come back to Edina and the transition was very smooth. Some things were awkward such as calling teachers by their first names whom she had taken classes from just a few years earlier.
According to Miss Erck. kids today have more freedom to express themselves. "Back then, a kid was either a freak or a jock, nothing in between. Today kids have a chance to express their individuality."
Not many people can say that they are still in the same high school as they were eleven years ago. but Edina-East has an exception with Pacy Erck.

Do you remember the days when touch football and field hockey were the major games played during gym? These activities have changed with time. Sports in our gym classes have turned toward recreational sports. Frisbee exhibitions and moonball tournaments were examples of these new activities. Students liked this change because it gave them a chance to work with and learn about sports they were interested in.
The music department increased its activities outside of school by getting involved in more choral events. During the spring, special choirs went on tour and performed for shopping centers. All of the choirs sang in the traditional seasonal concerts including a Christmas concert and a concert during the spring. Also in the spring, those students who tried-out had a chance to participate in contests and become eligible for state titles.

articipation came with a capital “P" at Edina-East because students paid for it — with their time, as well as their money. Organizations experienced the support of a large percentage of the student body. The pleasure found in contributing to our network of clubs far surpassed any price paid for the right to participate.
Why did we need to belong? Many followed the crowd into the activities that promised special fun for them; others joined to develop a certain interest; while still others felt impelled to contribute their mark of excellence of the cause.
The annual selection of new squad, staff or club members forced these lucky few to walk down the halls decorated with carnations, streamers, signs, and big smiles. No doubt, their glow of pride itself expressed the worth of an organization.
Along with the traditional organizations, informal ones sprang up spontaneously. The freedom of these “spur of the moment” clubs allowed it’s members to get involved in their own individual ways.
Whatever the nature of the activity, people were found who cared - about the group’s effort; about improving their abilities; and about building new relationships.

o endure, to strive, to persist ... is to cheer. And this year our cheerleaders did more than just cheer.
In late May try-outs were held with Molly Mork and Jaime Robertson becoming captains of the Varsity Squad, which consisted of thirteen other girls. Strenuous summer practices began and with the shin splints came a sense of accomplishment.

Six sophomore girls made up the B-squad cheerleaders. With Nancy Sayler as their captain they cheered at all of the sophomore and JV games.
Food was a very important word to both squads. It began with early morning breakfasts and potluck dinners and continued with the baking of food for team members.
Cheerleading was more than just
getting the fans involved and excited. They took on the huge responsibility of planning pepfests. From finding emcees to timing events they made sure the program went smoothly. It also meant psyching up the team through t-ping. ,'kissing,,t sign-making and decorating locker rooms — even getting caught in the process.

100 CHOIRChoir worked with traditional and difficult pieces, whereas the Swing and Chamber Choir dealt with the light and melodic songs. A unique group to this year’s department was the East-Side Singers, an ensemble that worked extra-curricularly to give private performances.
Darwin Missling was the commor note between all four of the choirs, emphasizing the importance of cooperation within each group. This unity resulted in a beautiful blend of music throughout the choirs’ productions. These performances consisted of their Christmas Concert.

Conductor Robert Lake led the band through practices which were held daily during fourth hour and on Monday nights. Practices became more frequent and demanding around SMASH but it was worth it when, according to one member. "Everybody knew their parts and it all came together at rehearsals."
Selling calendars and candy earned money for the "Grand Tour" to be taken during the summer by both the Concert and Varsity bands. Proposed tour locations included
Florida and Washington. D.C.
The Stinger Band performed at home soccer and basketball games, some pepfests and presented two concerts.
Band participants gained the satisfaction of "hearing themselves and the band improve throughout the year, and of conquering an especially challenging piece of music."

rill major Ann Towler, along with drum majors Jean Bro-sius and Lee Wandersee, led
the Marching Band in step and song at home football games. A major accomplishment of the band was the formation of the word "Coca-Cola" in script while playing the Coke theme song. A film of this production is on file at the Coke company, hopefully to be used in a commercial. The Marching Band members played together not only muscially. but also in non-band oriented activities such as picnics, parties and a hayride.
104 CONCERT BANDThe Marching Band season formally ended with the Marching Band Concert, after which the band was split into the Concert and Varsity Bands. The Concert Band, directed by Robert Elledge, omitted their traditional Christmas concert to begin preparing for the big 25th annual Pop Concert.
The Stage and Dance Band, composed of fifteen members from the Concert Band, performed at country clubs and private parties. Depending on the occasion, they played jazz, rock, or music from the Big Band
Although band required a lot of time, the members felt that "it was really worth all the time because we gained so much, such as all the fun we had together and the close friendships formed." Band also offered a "good experience in learning to work with others." and an "important exposure to music."

More Than A Common Note
ome on gang, let's make it sound! One. Two. ready, go ...” The Orchestra began to play, reading over a difficult score of music. And they would repeat it again and again until they produced just the right sound.
Mastering any musical instrument requires hours and hours of tedious work, but when these students joind Orchestra, practice time doubled twofold. "Around concert and tour time, rehearsals took up almost every spare minute of your day." commented freshman Orchestra member. David Froemming.
106 ORCHESTRADirector, John Peterson, guided this year's Orchestra from the struggle of working out the notes to reaching the “final product." The Orchestra displayed their talents in several concerts throughout the year. These performances were high lighted by the Cabaret and spring concerts, and a tour to Chicago in April. An ensemble group, the "Silver Strings" raised money for this tour by giving private performances throughout the Twin Cities.
In addition to their common interest in music, Orchestra members shared in many activities through-
out the year. Parties, hayrides. and the Tuesday night rehearsal, all contributed to the closeness of this year's group. "Everyone within Orchestra got along, regardless of age." explained Orchestra president, Lori Bowles. "It's neat, because many strong lasting friendships were built."

T. I. gave the students the satisfaction of working on a job. being paid, getting credits, and learning an occupation that they would continue to grow in. possibly as their career.
Vo-Tech, like T. I., helped students plan for their futures. Vo-Tech students spent their mornings earning credits while studying occupations at the Hennepin Vo-Tech cen-
ter in Eden Prairie. A few of the more popular classes were Auto Mechanics. Health Careers, and Building Trades. Health Careers, for example. taught the students skills required in the health occupations available today.
Vo-Tech provided students with a more realistic picture of both the range of occupations in a given field and the actual working conditions of the occupations.

e’ve got the whole world at our school-almost. Both the ABC and AFS clubs provided Edina-East with a taste of different lifestyles from around the world.
ABC, A Better Chance, handpicked its students from inner-city families to attend schools offering better opportunities.
This year, for the first time, the girls lived in the ABC house, while the boys paired with a host family. But they also shared in special times together, gathering Monday nights
110 ABCfor a weekly meal.
While ABC contributed a taste of the inner-city to Edina-East. AFS added a flavor of cultures from abroad.
AFS, headed by Lynn Thorvilson, planned many fundraisers during the year. The exchange students represented Sweden, Argentina. Australia. and Holland.
The “dating scene", they all agreed, was much different from their home countries. "The girls are friendlier here, but travel in harems.
and the boys are more polite, but much shyer."
They all found the school life at East very strict, though they enjoyed "the easy-paced life."
American food appealed to all the students, especially Perkin’s french toast, McDonald's hamburgers, and yummy desserts.
Both ABC and AFS broadened Edina-East’s horizons, exemplifying customs from all around the world.

pon seeing a mound of canned foods in their homerooms and witnessing the exchange of strawberry and pizza scented stationery in the halls, many students became curious as to what was going on. But these were just some of the fund-raisers sponsored by Red Cross.
Through these activities. Red Cross was able to provide needy families with Thanksgiving dinners, donate all their proceeds to various charities, and cheer-up lonely people at nursing homes.

112 RED CROSSUnder co-presidents. Jim Recke and Lynn Owens, Red Cross had a better communication with the student body through frequent morning announcements, meetings, and reports by homeroom representatives. Thus. Red Cross gained the support of students willing to spread their good will.
Spanish Club also attained newfound support, as its membership soared to sixty-six. They sponsered donut sales to raise money for their Homecoming float and their trip to Mexico this summer. Parties were a
major event in Spanish Club, starting the year with a Halloween costume party and ending with the traditional banquet at La Casa Coronado.
Latin Club also had its traditional event- “Latin Week." Much time was spent planning this week of slave auctions, dress-up days, and banquets in the original customs.
These language clubs provided East students with opportunities to learn about other cultures and have fun at the same time.

The Topic Is Spirit
tudents often asked, “Where is the spirit in this school?” With fresh ideas and enthusiasm. the Pep Club provided that spirit. A Pep Club council, formed to plan pep-raising activities, was begun this year. The thirteen council members were selected by the four student officers after personal interviews.
Pep Club activities included making locker tags; hosting pot-lucks for the players, cheerleaders and Hor-nettes: T.P.ing players' houses; making signs for the school walls
lu pep cluband honoring the coaches.
The girls in the yellow ‘‘Peppy" T-shirts became close friends and truly succeeded in generating genuine school spirit.
School spirit was not limited to athletics alone; academic endeavors could also bring trophies and rewards. The debate team, coached by Reida Laiderman and Len Crowley, had a successful season. Meetings every Monday and Wednesday plus long hours researching in the library prepared the debaters for this year's topic that the Federal
government should guarantee comprehensive medical care for all citizens.
The five month tournament season was highlighted by the overnight trips spent in Des Moines. Duluth and Mankato.
Besides the immediate rewards of winning trophies and earning points for National Forensic League pins, the team members met new people, sharpened their argumentative abilities. and had lots of fun.

And The Actors Played On
ne didn’t have to be an Edina Player to be in a play. One didn't have to be in a play to be an Edina Player. One just had to have enthusiasm.
Besides having a good time, the Edina Players were a group of students that all shared the common interest of theater. Each Tuesday after school, meetings were held in room 135. and topics discussed ranged from planning their Home-coming skit to organizing their annual progressive dinner. Members were required to pay nominal dues of one dollar and then could partici-
116 EDINA PLAYERSpate In all of the club's activities. Viewing other productions in the metro-area and performing scenes for Humanities classes here at school, were just two functions that Kept the club together between seasonal plays.
The Edina Players sponsored a dance class that was led by John Command, a talented choreographer at the Chanhassen dinner theater. Held at the junior high, the ten sessions met weekly during the winter months. After an initial exercise period, steps from Broadway musicals were learned to perfection.
A few select Edina Players earned the distinguished title of International Thespians. Through hard work as both cast and crew members, these fine actors accumulated enough points to initiate them into the national group..
In the final act. Edina Players continued to play, long after the last curtain has fallen.

Paving A Path To Improvement
ho were those mysterious figures that appeared in home rooms each week? Through numerous surveys and questionnaires. the Student Council never tired of acting on the students’ ideas and suggestions.
The council members worked hard with improvement as their goal. In addition to organizing the new school lunch board and the snack break clean-up schedule, they worked on beautifying the cafeteria with a mural and on improving the
118 STUDENT COUNCILpoor bathroom conditions.
With Delmar Fredrickson as the
advisor and Ben Platter as president, the Council convened every morning during first hour. They had a demerit system which kept classroom rules strict, and order was constantly maintained at the regularly scheduled meetings. The minutes from these meetings were posted in every classroom so that the student body would know what their council was doing.
The council was elected by the
students, of the students, and for the students. Through motions that were brought up and referred to committees, the school was constantly being improved by the council members.
After being on the Student Council. the members gained confidence in public speaking as well as knowledge in parliamentary procedures. Speeches, parties, frustration and laughter all went into the making of a better Edina-East High school.

rainstorming was how a Buzzette story got started. As soon as Buzzette members had made a list of article ideas Lynn Thorvllson, chief editor, assigned Buzz Etter to report on the fall play.
Buzz Etter had approximately two weeks to research, write, and complete his article before it was to be sent to the printer. The first step that Buzz Etter took on researching his topic, was purchasing two tickets to the play: one for himself and one
120 BUZZETTEfor the photographer. After the play he went backstage and interviewed the director, cast, and also talked to a few people in the audience, asking for comments on the performance.
From there Buzz Etter gathered all the information he had accumulated and sat down to put his article together. Within a couple hours of hard work Buzz Etter had finished his article, and all he had to do now was have it checked by Lynn. The article was okayed and Lynn took over from there. It was off to the
printer to be processed into long sheets. Then the staff pitched in to cut the articles and lay them out in newspaper form. The layout was sent back to the printer, and in five days he returned the final copies.
"Will all homerooms send a representative to room 129 to pick up their Buzzettes."
"Ah, now for the next issue."

mages on the Wind started I -|| off the year with a fresh, new advisor. Mrs. Jerpbak, a fresh, new room, and an almost completely fresh, new staff. Yet Images staffers had the same, old fun in the same, old crazy ways. Their consistent excitement for the literary-art magazine resulted in one of the most acclaimed high school publications in Minnesota.
Images was compiled of artwork, poetry, and short stories composed by students, providing a channel for them to reveal their inner feelings.
But the work put into Images went
far beyond the submission of creative arts by students. The main line of production was carried out by the twenty staffers every Tuesday after school. The Images staff conducted the subscription drive, collected and selected the submissions that would be published and laid out the magazine.
The creativity of the staff was further expressed in their unique theme for the year: "The Unicorn-representing the fantasy." Their imaginative minds also discovered many creative ways to transform any kind of work into fun. Parties
were organized at the drop of a pin. and songs were composed to publicize everything from subscription drives to doughnut sales. Editor Lori Gustafson summed up her feelings about the year by saying. "Images was a lot more than putting a magazine together- it involved friends."

Where else butaX Edina-East could one find close to sixteen-hundred students so willing to get in volved in their school? Whether in set organizations or informal groups, people were everywhere; taking college tests, supporting the different teams, or walking along the hallways at school.
Participation, coupled with achievement, seemed to be more the rule than the exception. Academically, this was apparent as 80-85% of the student body used their grades and education as a stepping-stone to college. Ron Schmidt, Career Learning Center Counselor, commented. “Achievers at Edina don't have to hide, they are respected for their efforts."
Almost everything people joined presented a chance to laugh, learn and enjoy themselves. Although there were cliques, as common as in any other school, each grade level seemed to come closer to leaving these security blankets behind.
The stereotype “Edina kids” was not all bad. for it meant we came from a community where people's ideas and interests were developed freely.
Whether as faces in the crowd, passing acquaintances, or close friends, people constantly touched our lives. We emerged as individuals with a respect for achievement and an acceptance of our abilities as people.

Gretchen Berg approach. 2) Freshman Kay Vermeer snips away intensely. 3) In a skit.

CLASSES DIVISION 127Seniors 78 The Start Of Something
ey, where are all the seniors? That’s right, we're the seniors! At the beginning of the year many felt this way. but as the year went on the spirit and unity developed among the Class of 1978! After beginning our high school careers as timid freshmen, we emerged as sophisticated upperclassmen. As seniors we gained the respect and set the pace for the underclassmen. No longer were there worries of having to impress and act right in front of the older guys.
Getting to know people in the senior class was one of the things the senior boatride. broomball games and numerous activities for seniors
only accomplisned. A closeness developed that was not present in earlier years. Many times groups would gather at different homes for parties, and Braemar Hockey Arena was frequently rented for a late night hockey game.
Certain rights and privileges were granted to seniors only; leaving classes a few minutes early before pepfests. a special ’'senior section" at football games, and the great Rick and Roddy cheering section. As the year progressed, a comment that was heard frequently was "Our class is so much closer this year!" New friendships were formed and old ones continued to grow.

Morning Has Broken
ow did boys do it? This was the big question in the mind of every girl in the entire school.
Each morning the alarm went off at 6:30 and soon the race began. The female population stumbled to the bathroom where they showered, washed, blow-dried and curled their hair. Then came the big question, what to wear? After trying
on about ten outfits, they usually ended up with a basic turtleneck, sweater and jeans. After rushing downstairs, the poor girls came to the conclusion that there was just enough time to down a glass of o.j. Throwing on their coats, the girls usually caught the rear view of the bus passing by the window.
Once again the question arose, how did the boys do it? Up at 7:30. they would shower, shave (ha!), get dressed, eat breakfast and even have time to read Ann Landers. GOOD GRIEF!!

■ he S.B.O. bulletin board announced the Clean Sweepers vs. the O-Cedar Stranglers. No. this was not a gang fight and the S.B.O. was not a derogatory remark. Actually, the S.B.O. was short for Senior Broomball Organization, which was one of the many senior organized sporting events that took place this year.
As the cold winds blew and the ice began to form behind the tennis courts. Spiders from Mars and Maggots. equipped with warm woolies
and sturdy brooms, met after school for another clash. With brooms and senior women flying face first across the ice. the men attempted to dominate the ball throughout the game. The process of getting on one of the teams wasn’t too rigorous. The only qualifications were, being a senior, owning a broom, and the ability to take bumps and bruises in a sportsmanlike manner. Through rain, sleet and snow the seniors' enthusiasm for broomball. hockey and football never faded.

142 SENIORSWHERE DOES IT GO?
Money, although a treasured commodity, seemed to slip through lingers as it they were greased with Wesson oil. It was sometimes hard to say where it went - all of a sudden it was just gone! Inflation did not stop students from patronizing favorites such as McDonald's Junior World and Braemar Arena, it simply accelerated the rate at which the money went. Other expenditures included albums, sporting events and "having fun." Money was the root of ... seemingly everything The expenses of a typical evening could average $7.50, including $3.50 for a movie. $2.00 for food afterwards and $2.00 for gas. Almost all types of entertainment required some funds, although student organized football and broomball games, skating parties and the like provided free fun for all.
Where did the money come from? Mainly parents and jobs. Although one had to be sixteen to hold a "real" |ob. many freshmen and sophomores cashed in on jobs such as babysitting, shoveling snow and mowing lawns. Popular jobs for those over sixteen included store clerks and stock room workers, waitresses and business office aides.
Some seniors discovered more unique methods of attaining the almighty dollar Sarah Cox • "Scalping Viking tickets at the Met Robin Froemming • "I worked hard all summer walking the bcanficids in Southern Minnesota."
Scott Schutz - "I get my money from the fishpond at Southdale."
Randy Aksamit • "Selling my car at a profit and doing tuneups."

ow did ’78 Senior men get their kicks? What was their excuse to smear make-up on their faces? Or prance around in gym shorts in front of the student body?
The Hornyettes began when Phil Sieff and Mike Olson decided to fulfill their fantasies, and organized their very own danceline. Coached by Mary Sexton and "advised” by Tom Beaver, these twenty curva-cious cuties bounced their way through several Edina-East functions.
After lining up according to height, they received t-shirts with the name of the corresponding Hor-nette printed on the back, as well as balloons and instructions to use their imaginations.
Practices were few. although the more talented members had reportedly received "private coaching." In any case the '78 Hornyettes hopefully created a senior sensation that's here to stay.
Also in the category of attention-starved seniors were the Rick and Roddy Cheering Section. Easily recognized by their Edina-East caps and overly ambitious vocal chords, these rowdies gained fame for such compositions as "Steak for breakfast, cake for lunch" and of course their classic collection of ‘’AHMO’’ cheers. If nothing else, the R and R Cheering Section will be remembered for its contributions to more memorable and spirited sports events.

SENIORS 149Feast Or Famine
'm so fat, tomorrow I start my diet." This comment was heard frequently at Edina-East. After a night of really pigging out. a feeling of fatness would set in. and the decision was made that tomorrow would be the day. Some diets consisted of a large piece of French Silk pie and a Tab. while others included only one trip to McDonalds instead of three in a weekend.
This year many new diets were introduced. Liquid Protein was popular. which consisted of eating no solid foods and just taking a protein supplement and vitamins. Others decided this scheme wouldn't work for them, and they just fasted.
Many diets lasted until the next bit of tantalizing food was placed within an arm's reach. The many trips to Winchells, My Pie. and Zapata didn’t make it any easier for a dieter. Willpower was really tested when a group of friends would get together at someone's house. Sure, diet pop was present, along with potato chips, dip. M M's. cookies, candy, etc ...
No matter where a dieter would turn, food was always present. A comment heard at Swensen's Ice Cream Factory by a perpetual dieter was. "I'll have two scoops of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and nuts-but hold the cherry. I’m on a diet."

■V rAfter 3675 hours of high school
he calender finally turned to the year 1977-78 and we became full-fledged seniors All that we did was watched by the other students, and copied We had been through school so many years before that we thought we knew it all. yet something was different We were, at last, leaders not followers We set new priorities, putting fun first and schoolwork second We weren't irresponsible, but after so many years of practice, we became adept at writing term papers at 10:00 p.m Sunday night.
Sure there were many decisions to make regarding college, and the path our lives were to take, but what was most important in our minds was how to have the best time possible this year Some seniors accomplished this by playing football, hockey etc while others turned to good old-fashioned partying But no matter which way. the mam idea was the same This was our last year at Edina-East, and we were deter mined to make it the best!

156 SENIORSForging Ahead
ould you believe ... car trouble? ... a six hour dentist appointment? ... the two hour flu? These were among the top ten excuses used by Edina-East skippers this year.
The sun was shining — a beautiful spring day. the wheels were at hand, and there was a substitute in Chemistry. All systems were go. and on impulse, so did the skipper.
Skippers usually traveled in packs of two to five, going anywhere from Perkins to the Superette. Other hotspots that the skippers hit were McDonalds, the library, the cafeteria during fourth hour, and sometimes
even the second floor bathroom. But no matter where they went, skipping was always a good time, and it seemed “so easy!"
But getting back into class the next day was another story. Two of the most popular procedures were to forge a note from mom. or even more daring, forge a stolen admit. But the oldest way to get excused still remained the safest, for a good story to a sympathetic teacher always seemed to work. "I'm sorry that I had to miss fourth hour yesterday. but I had to go home to let the plummer in. Ya see. my parents are out of town and ...”

SENIORS 159The Dating Game
ere he comes! Here he comes!” she whispered excitedly while nonchalantly leaning against her locker. "Maybe this would be a good time for me to leave." her friend commented while winking slyly.
Meanwhile, the guys were scheming. also, checking out their particular girl's locker location, class schedule. previous dates, and her "reputation." Friends were also an important part of the investigation, putting in a good word whenever possible.
Once a guy and a girl began dat-
ing. they would plan activities such as bowling. Putt-Putt, golfing, movies or just "watching T.V." This was followed by a trip to a pie shop or Perkins, where the boy would feast, and the girl would daintily sip her Tab. afraid to order anything over $2.00 or one hundred calories.
"The door scene" wound up the date for most couples. Usually the girl would thank the guy and turn to go inside, just as she felt his lips somewhere near her right ear lobe. After ending a date like that, many couples decided to "just be friends."

Joining The Working World
weet sixteen and never been hired. All this changed as juniors got their first job. As graduated seniors left for college the openings were capably filled by the juniors. Applications, interviews, sweat and prayer went into the job hunt.
At first many couldn’t handle a five day a week. 3:00-9:00 job so they often started with a couple days a week for two to three
hours. As the year progressed and the hours seemed to increase. the working juniors social life diminished. The manager became a challenge when asking for time off.
When the jobster did come in for work it provided him with a small, but welcome, income. Instead of "Mom can I borrow a couple of bucks for the weekend?". Mom asked for a couple of
bucks for the weekend. This created a sense of independence. But as the money came in there were always new and unique ways to spend it.
The first job was a stepping stone to the real world. It provided an invaluable experience, interaction with others, and it was not to be soon forgotten.

FEARLESS VAmPIRE KILLER
ne favorite diversion anticipated and enjoyed by juniors after turning seventeen was being able to attend those funny, violent, and often a little risque "R” rated movies; legally. Flicks like Blazing Saddles or Carrie and. of course, cheerleader movies, afforded unlimited entertainment opportunities. Occasionally the mushy films might get dull so a bored junior could have always brought a friend along to attempt to disrupt the audience by cracking up during a suspenseful moment. Though trouble making. Ju-Ju Bee fights and being asked to leave by an usher still sent a chill up the spine, the challenge of attempting to sneak in was now gone, leaving an empty void in its place. But the adventurous junior could always pick up his Dad's old trenchcoat, an out of date Fedora and a pair of "cool shades” and try a new. kinky thrill, sneaking into an "X" rated movie!

chores around the house.
While escaping from the after school routines, the topics of conversation could have ranged from trying to figure out puzzeling Algebra and Trigonometry problems to hot and juicy romances.
If the gabbing did swing to the more bizarre subjects, there was a chance that an eavesdropping brother or sister just might happen to pick up the telephone and catch a jist of the conversation. The poor girl found herself in big trouble if a parent just happened to find out about it. The best cure for the little bugger was a good bribe. In some states this would have been considered black mail!
Though interruptions were many and cooperation little, a junior still found time for some good gossip!
It’s For You
ary the phone's for you
“Thanks daddy I'll take the call upstairs. Hi Sue? Yeah, what cha up to tonight?"
“Oh. about 5 2”!. No really not much, just the usual hassles and homework. I’ve got some good gossip though."
“Ooh, do tell!"
“Sue. it's time for dinner get off
this phone right now!"
"All right mom I'm off. Mary I’ll call you back when I get finished."
“Sue. don’t you dare keep me in suspense for that long!"
Alas it was too late Sue had already hung up.
Conversation like these were common among junior girls. These little talks were a welcome relief from schoolwork or doing nightly

n the prospering suburb of Edina, fast food chains soon sprang up. These restaurants thus bore the name of a high school hangout. A hangout could have acutally been any where there were a few chairs, a table, and mass of bodies. The best place to hang seemed to be restaurants, because anywhere there was food there was a teenager!
One certain restaurant. Perkins, seemed to be repeatedly patronized at six-thirty a.m. on most school mornings by crowds of giggly girls dragging in a birthday girl in her p.j.’s and slippers. Getting bizarre looks from waitresses could not put a damper on their birthday festivities. This practice was almost considered traditional at Edina-East.
McDonalds was also a great escape. To beat the lunchroom monotony. if one could find another with a car. Macs' was the place to go for a quick munch. A Coke and fries were also great after a football game. At least fifty kids could be found packed around the counter screaming "We’re number one!" Maybe the football team wasn't but the people were!

Oops! Flunked Again
core a 70. If you
|E|| didn't you could always try again next week, as many did. All were in pursuit of a driver's license.
In the beginning a driver’s license candidate chose the “easiest" location to take their test, and there proceeded to execute perfect turns, to carefully observe all intersections and to drive
at an average speed of 10 m.p.h.
If the test was successfully completed. the deteriorated paper permit was gladly exchanged for a genuine plastic driver’s license.
New worlds were opened to the sophomores with licenses. Instead of waiting for mom to get done working so she could chauffeur friends around, the licensee could merely take the car himself. After football games, herds of sophomore kids packed into "the wheels" to
seek out popular hangouts and crash upperclassmen's parties.
If there was no way to pass the test, bumming a ride from someone else was a favorite challenge to be considered.

Circles Of Success
oving up on the high school ladder, former freshman tasted a "sophomore experience" in several flavors.
Sophomores found new respon-siblities this year. One of the biggest was trying to complete their first term paper. Having a month to prepare it. the common thing seemed to be to never even begin it until the last minute. The term paper was a very traumatic experience for some underclassmen but proved to be one of the most important lessons ever learned.
Having something in common with seniors was finally achieved by this year’s sophs. Class rings were on sale and many jumped at the
chance to buy one. There was a certain amount of prestige felt by all who wore the Edina symbol around their finger, showing how proud the bearer was to be a student at Edina-East.
Class buttons, specialities this year, were also on sale. They were made just for the class of 1980. The buttons and rings would always bring back fond memories of the sophomore year.
There were many mixed emotions
about gym class required for the last time. Some liked to break up their studies with a little bit of physical exercise. For these people it was an hour to relieve tension and frustration. but for others it was just a required credit to be obtained.

all life’s little dilemmas that a high school student had to live through one of the worst exper-ences had to be getting braces, hough going to the orthodontist and letting those silvery bands on was an xtremely painful tragedy, to go to chool with braces had to be far worse, he victim had to face the old cliches uch as ‘‘Hi ya‘ tinsel teeth!” or “Hey race-face how's the railroad?” Thinking of gym class could send hivers up ones spine. Getting hit in the ace by a ball or fist could leave the
imprint of railroads for at least two weeks. Heaven help the hotlips who got his braces caught with his girlfriends!
After getting those wicked devils removed. the ex-tinsel teeth could again eat juicy carmel apples and scrumptious corn on the cob. The "creme de la creme" had to be going to school and flashing a mouth full of pearly white teeth. To face seven years of a retainer had to be the lesser of two evils!

Huestion: What Is a freshman? Answer: Who knows! At pep-fests they were considered the lowest form of life. That reply was slightly innaccurate. Though they were small, they still were human and not micro-organisms.
During the first few weeks of school, freshmen had a hard time adjusting to the high school customs. They could be heard repeatedly asking such questions as. "Can I go to the Men's bathroom if there isn't one for boys?" or "Where is the tunnel between Normandale and Southview?” Those who were too afraid to ask any questions usually ended up skipping or bursting into the wrong classroom.
After those first few weeks, the freshmen had only two worries. One was getting mashed while trying to purchase a lunch ticket. The other, being stepped on by upperclassmen while attempting to pick up a lost or dropped pencil.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 2071978 — a school year with a special flare. There were waves of excitement, tides of disappointment.
For every student different endings will help complete the old cliche.
“Do you remember when ... ?"
But good or bad. our many “todays”
at Edina-East will leave their impression on the people we will become in the future. Perhaps with confidence, perhaps with hope, we turn our eyes forward knowing always that, we've got tomorrow ...

Fantasy overwelmed the couples who attended the long-awaited Prom. Saturday. May 19 was the night for both elegance and fun.
Girls spent all day Saturday preparing for the long weekend. Guys went about the day in their normal fashion, getting ready at the last minute.
Soon it was time to pin on corsages and pose for several pictures taken by overly excited parents. After “getting into the car” shots, the couple was off to a fancy dinner at a prominant restaurant.
Under light sprinkles of rain and a large spotlight, couples arrived at Calhoun Beach Club, ready for hours of dancing and mingling. On the dance floor, everyone was boogying and truly enjoying themselves. Occasionally a guy would lose his girl, only to learn that she was just in the ladies' room powdering her nose.
Around 1:00, the parties at hotels or abandoned homes began. There, more dancing and laughter prevailed until it was time to eat once more. Then it was off to an early breakfast at someone’s house.
The weekend of fantasy ended with people sleeping their Sunday away and dreaming of that perfect weekend.

The last graduating class of the
seventies celebrated commencement with feelings of elation and anxiety. Although it was hard to see what had been a way of life for twelve years come to a finish, the thought of freedom and independence held a sense of adventure. Reflecting on their years at East, students realized just how many cherished memories high school held for them. Honor graduate Betsy Cardie spoke of the eduction students received beyond that of textbook knowledge, such as values, companionship and individual growth. Jim Denman’s commencement speech pointed out that the definition of success varied from person to person by using the example of Joe Exertion.
Following commencement, seniors were bussed to Edina-West for a night of celebration. The all-night senior party was. as in past years, the highlight of
graduation. The theme chosen by senior parents was "A Night in the Magic Kingdom.” which centered around Disneyland.
Once captive in the Kingdom, students had the opportunity to wander through Futureland. Frontierland. and Adventureland. Here, students tried their hand at foosball tournaments, target shooting, and obstacle courses. Even the untalented won prizes such as a waterbed. a used car. a trip for two to Disneyland, and many others donated by area businesses. This year, for the first time, seniors breakfasted on rolls and juice at the school instead of traveling to another location. This gave graduates more time to enjoy themselves at the party. Thanks to months of planning and dedicated late - night work by senior parents, the graduation party was truly ”A Night in the Magic Kingdom."

4 GOLF BASEBALLAlthough golf and baseball are
very different sports, the members of each team found themselves competing individually, whether it be on the tee or up at bat.
The golf season at Edina-East began in late April and continued through early May. After try-outs, those who survived the final cuts practiced after school Monday through Friday at Braemar. Interlachen. and the Edina Country Club.
One of the season's highlights was a bus trip to Willmar and New London. MN.. where the team participated in two invitational tournaments with other high school teams.
Spurred on by the enthusiasm of coach Tom Beaver and the leadership of captain Charlie Noreen, the team ended the season with an impressive record of 6 wins and 2 losses.
Among those honored at the golf banquet were Charlie Noreen, who received the award for most valuable player, and Bill Scheidinger for most improved player. When asked about his responsibilities as captain of next year's team. Andy Deckas replied. "The first thing I’ll do is encourage as many guys as I can to try out for the
The most common word heard at the baseball team’s early season practices was "Brrrrrrr!" It was not the dead of winter, but the players were victims of a cold Minnesota spring. The team proved to be freezer-proof, as their record of 10-6 revealed. Partly because of the weather, the team got off to a slow start, with a few disheartening losses coming early in the season.
The Hornets bounced back with a winning streak of seven straight. The team found themselves in the midst of a double-elimination region tournament. with the help of captains Greg Olson and Mark Gagnon. The Hornets buzzed through the tournament, with their most thrilling victory coming against Lindbergh with a score of 14-13. Defeated by Minnetonka, they left as the second best team in the region. Greg Olson, Tom Carroll, and Bob Smith, three All-Conference players, were key parts in the success of the team this year. Despite the near-zero temperatures and delayed beginning, the Hornets again gave Edina-East a team of which to be proud.

Repeating last year’s success,
the boys’ varsity tennis team volleyed their way to victory. The team consisted of many strong returning players and able newcomers. The large amount of talent coupled with a winning attitude proved successful in match after match.
The team practiced everyday throughout the spring and the pay off came as overall performances improved. Coached by Lazio Szendrey and managed by the “Sultan of Slavery" Rick Graham, the team finished the season with only one loss to Edina-West.
This year also produced excellent playing on the individual level as Bob Bateman, playing at second singles, finished undefeated and Brian Johnson captured the state individual title.
After an unexpected loss to Edina-West. the team pulled together and went on to win decisive victories in the sectional playoffs. In the state tournament the team didn’t lose a single set. which was an unprecedented accomplishment in the history of the tournament.

8 BOYS’ GIRLS’ TRACKThis spring the girls’ track team sped through the season with terrific team spirit and sportsmanship. Former graduate Julie Benz coached the hurdlers and Al Carlson the distance runners. Mary Ready, Ann Moffa and Mary Anderson were hurdling successes throughout the season, which boosted the team’s winning scores over Edina West and Jefferson. Sophomore distance runner Becky Beal also appeared in the limelight running the two mile.
On the field, the girls also accomplished great feats. Kris Finberg threw her best distances in discus and shot put to raise the team score against West.
A new addition to the girls’ team this year was the participation of 7-9 graders. Being involved in track gave them the experience and background necessary to compete on the varsity level in future years.
The boys track team basically had a rebuilding year in ’79. ‘‘We had a growing team that improved with experience," stated Jason Velgersdyk. The trackmen’s season progressed with the young team overcoming tough opponents including Edina West and Richfield. Outstanding athletes such as Velgersdyk and Mike Braun, who took state in the pole vault, were regarded as team leaders and inspired team members. These two, along with other seniors, helped to keep the team on the right track by sharing their knowledge of the sport. This year’s team showed spirit unlike most track teams by cheering teammates and displaying good sportsmanship.

10 AQUA NYMPHSGirls Succeed
The Varsity Softball team had a
very successful 79 season, combining determination and skill to capture second place in State. The toughest part of the season proved to be getting through the Region VI tournament. The Hornets slid through two extremely close games against Lindbergh and Richfield. The team entered the state tournament with a 17-3 record and defeated the defending champions, the Cambridge Bluejackets. 1-0 in the first round. A 7-4 victory over Brooklyn Center in the semi-finals pushed the girls into the championship. In that final game, the Hornets bowed to Rose-mount 10-5 in extra innings and ended their season with a 19-4 record.
Pitching was the strong point in 79. with star pitchers Cristi Hulse and Gretchen Larson leading the team to victory. These two. along with Lynn Owens and Patti Bergren, were named to the All-Conference squad. Sophomore Franny Barry was named Most Improved and also led the team in batting.
With close assistance from coaches Kendal Johnson and Sherry Render, the Aqua Nymphs successfully floated
to finals. The state meet was held on May 17th. 18th and 19th in Anoka. Many outstanding accomplishments were made by co-captain Sarah Johnson. She placed second in stunts and solo as well as in her duet with cocaptain Sarah Truesdell and her group routine. As a team, the Edina-East Aqua Nymphs placed third out of seventeen teams.
The team’s hard work and dedication this season was revealed in their 8-1 record. Their biggest thrill was victory over the 1978 State Champs from Stillwater. The Aqua Nymphs were always improving their skills and as a team they worked well together.
The season ended on a good note with the annual Aqua Nymphs presentation. The theme of this year’s show was "A Wrinkle In Time." Its organization was headed by show officer Betsy Ellingson. The atmosphere was created by a mural made by volunteers from the team. Thus this season was a satisfying one for the Aqua Nymphs.

CONCERTSWhile realizing a standard of excellence achieved in recent years, the Band, Choir, and Orchestra approached their respective concerts in a new and fresh way. A much improved Cabaret concert was the result of committees of students who wrote skits and choreographed dances. Mr. Peterson arranged the music while parents helped prepare costumes and publicity. The enthusiasm of the performers was evident as each Orchestra member fulfilled his her potential.
Smash, with Mr. Peterson as a new director, incorporated the All-American songs of George M. Cohen as its theme. “The Parrot Sketch" from the television show “Monty Python’s Flying Circus" led off the second half and was followed by staged versions of George M. Cohen songs. The show traced Cohen’s life from the beginning
of his career to its climax. Scott Backus and Brian Ensminger portrayed George effectively in such songs as "I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy". "Give My Regards to Broadway", and "You’re a Grand Old Flag". Although the Varsity Band lacked talented performers they managed to produce a highly entertaining show.
Jubil-East. one of the year's musical highlights, changed for the better with the addition of choreographed dances and colorful costumes. Under Darwin Missling’s direction, popular show tunes such as "Fire". "Shower the People", and "Desperado" were featured. Jenny Abbinante summed up the entire year in saying: "The choir really pulled together to put on Jubil-East. which proved to be the highlight of our year."
The dramatists of Edina-East
were successful in both of their endeavors this spring.
"Alice in Wonderland" featured Marlene Tungseth as Alice, Renee Foss as the Mad Hatter. Scott Dorn as the Rabbitt, Sheila Burke as the Chesire Cat, Steve Shnepp as Humpty Dumpty, and Gwen Sidley as the Door Mouse.
The play was presented as theatre-in-the-round. creating a more intimate setting. A very physical performance by the actors helped to make it even more successful because of the abstract nature of their presentation.
"The Skin of our Teeth" was a difficult play to stage, but that obstacle was overcome in this production. In Thorton Wilder’s satire on life, the An-trobuses survive a seven year war. a plague, a flood, and the ice age by the skin of their teeth. The family lives among dinosaurs as the time span of the play consumes years. Hired outside the school. Rebecca Landor directed the play while her assistant created an outstanding set.
A commendable performance was presented by Mary Lou Boyle as Mrs. Antrobus. Other talented performers were Paige Nienaber, Linda Haus-kins, Jill Widell, Andy Braum, Denise George, Lisa Horecki, Steve Schnepp, and Johanna Zdch.
According to Jill Widell, "The play was a lot of fun, especially since we could adlib some of our lines. The set wasn't finished until a week before our performance but we managed to tie everything together."

PLAYS 15The Honors Banquet, held on Monday, May 21. paid tribute to the outstanding academic achievements of the fifty-eight honor students. All of these seniors had maintained a grade point average of 10.5 since their sophomore year.
The evening opened with a few welcoming words from Rollie Ring. A fancy dinner of Salisbury steak was served, which, as Mr. Ring commented. tasted "just like school lunches." Following the meal. Dr. John B. Davis Jr, President of Macalester College, spoke of the responsibilities of college-bound youth and the importance of using both learning and common sense in everyday life. Later, counselors Robert Hall and Rodney Schmidt presented the honor students with certificates and Edina-East letters. Although being an honor student was a fine achievement, other seniors had
special qualities which were acknowledged at the Senior Banquet.
On May 10. seniors gathered in the cafeteria for the banquet, which would be one of the last times they would be together as a class. Following a turkey dinner, class officers Dave Woodley, Larry Vorlicky, Gwen Sidley, and Heidi Widell presented the superlative awards to selected members of the class and also read the senior class will.
Mrs. Heyer then entertained the class by singing with teachers and students while playing her accordian. The evening concluded with a dance in the front foyer.
Looking back, senior class president Dave Woodley remarked. "The banquet provided the class of '79 one last chance to get together-to laugh, dance, and have a good time.”
