One Last Look A year in high school is in one way like an expedition to the top of a mountain; when the climb is over, we are compelled to look back. We are faced with lasting impressions of our valuable experiences along the way. Our high school years were a period of change and experimentation. We coped with cracking voices and adjusted to the pressures of an increasingly complicated lifestyle; the daily routine of a sixteen year old was unquestionably more complicated than that of a ten year old. The “best years of our lives” obliged us to excel in school and, simultaneously, pushed us into the real world of minimum wages, minimum ages, and traffic violations. We took advantage of as many of Kdina-East’s opportunities as possible, and we learned to lead and to follow. We searched for our identitites and discovered our values and priorities. We established durable relationships and occasional romances. We cultivated new interests while struggling to resist the peer pressure which had dominated our early adolescence. It was a period of trial and error; frustrating failures and reassuring successes. We developed attitudes and goals certain to have a profound effect upon our futures. Our high school year deserves one last look. THEME 3A Look At Us One Last Look at ourselves. During our years in high school we became unique individuals. Edina provided us with a special place to learn, grow, and develop relationships with other people. Not only friends in our respective class, but also other students, faculty members, and family. We built lasting friendships. However, friends occasionally overstepped their bounds. Each birthday we dreaded the 6:00 A.M. wake up call of familiar voices singing off key. Nevertheless, friends were always a part of our good times on weekends, embarrassing moments with that certain person, and the unforgettable incident when we were “caught” doing what ever it was we shouldn’t have been doing. Even our everyday routine depended upon the support and trust of a best friend, or, for some, a boy or girl friend. Faculty members helped to strengthen us in many ways other than academics. We often grew t know them as friends and shared our problems and achievements with them. We even depended upon our teachers to write good, accurate recommendations for us when we applied to colleges. Our families pulled us through ups and downs. They showed compassion in helping us cope with pressures, homework, and frustrations. Parents often yielded to our desire for money and late nights, as well as other unreasonable demands. Their love gave us the confidence to face school functions, organizations, sports, and dances, which gave us the security we needed to feel useful and respected among our peers. We strived for perfection in what we did best, whether it was dramatics, music, or athletics. Yet, we did not fail to realize the good qualities of a well rounded person. We built lasting friendships upon different foundations, which will carry over to the new Edina or to wherever our college plans take us. .Above: Put Carroll and Tom Drees enjoy their leisure time during lunch.

THEME 5A Look At The Sting That Lasts One Last Look at Edina-East. Thirty-one years gave Edina a name known all over the state. Whether by a rival school from northern Minnesota or by a envious school from the Twin Cities, Edina-East was noticed extensively. Another Look revealed our accomplishments and our failures; Edina definitely had its share of each. Our reputation emphasized our victories in sports, academic achievements, and our exuberant spirit. Although our opponents tried to rub it in, we took defeat in stride. Our rivals labeled us “cake eaters.” Whether or not we deserved the nickname, we enjoyed eating it up. A Look into Edina-East. After traditions had started and our reputation was established, they were associated with and contributed to the Edina mystique. However, we were more than a name. Edina-East High School was a conglomeration of individuals whose competitive drive resulted in success. Edina-East was populated by an outstanding administration, faculty, and student body. Unfortunately, in June of 1981 an era of excellence ended. Upper left: Mr. Ring administrates in the true Hornet fashion. Top: A sea of green pervades the Homecoming pepfest.

THEME 7In completing the 1980-1981 school year we conquered only one of the many mountains in the range of life. That we matured as we expanded our horizons cannot be denied. We acquired knowledge and experience that will help us meet the challenges of tomorrow. We learned to distinguish good from bad; dreams from reality, in our preparation for the next year’s climb. As underclassmen, we planned for a rewarding experience at the new Edina High School. We set our sights toward positions on varsity athletic squads, first chair in the orchestra, or the lead in the fall musical. We ran for student council offices, and we survived try-outs, interviews, and, perhaps, initiations to become members of a particular organization. We made resolutions for the ensuing year and vowed to maintain them. As seniors, we decided between a college education and the work force. We sharpened our skills through the Vo-tech and D.E.C.A. programs. If we chose the academic route we endured anxious hours of waiting for replies to our college applications. We grew sentimental as graduation day approached and spent more time reminiscing. We noticed aspects of Edina-East that we had overlooked before as we prepared to part with an institution that had served us so well. For most of us, looking back upon our past school year inspired us to look ahead and to eagerly move on. Moving On 8 THEMEar,T 1.

TOne Last Look ... at Edina-East’s student life which helped us develop well rounded personalities and social habits. During our last year together we endeavored to become involved in various activities; we participated in student performances, Homecoming, religious groups, and organizations outside of school. Anticipating Sno-Daze, Prom, rock concerts, and vacations made our weekdays somewhat bearable. We found entertainment at movies, sporting events, parties, and even by sampling fast food at MacDonald’s. We fought our monotonous academic routine with refreshing lunch and snack break conversation, gossip about romances, and by modeling the latest fads and fashions. Unfortunately, the pages of the calendar turned too quickly as the school year neared its closing. Whether channeled through school functions or our personal pursuits, we let our spirit, pride, and individuality be known. Top: Jubilant senior women weather the cold on top of a tradition.

Whether it was mowing lawns or waiting on tables, many students found summer as an opportune time to earn money. Those of us who were not fortunate enough to.be away on vacation, up north at a cabin, or counseling at a camp probably remained in Edina; stuck in the same situation as these high school students. Anita Dayte: O.K. you guys, where should we go? Lotta Zitts: How about Lake Harriet? I’m so white I could puke! Sue Urr: Yeah, that sounds like fun! Anita: Anywhere but Harriet. We go there so much I know the fish by name! Sue: Yeah, I’m sick of Lake Harriet. Lotta: So, what about the country club? Sue: I don’t belong. Anita: That is the understatement of the year. Shoot! If we would have planned it earlier, today’s perfect to go to the Apple River or Valley Fair. By the way, we should get that canoe trip to Taylor’s Falls planned. Lotta: For sure! We have to do that! Hey you guys, I wonder if Cliff will marry Nina after all. Should we go home and watch the soaps? Anita: No, it’s too nice out. Later ... Lotta: C’mon guys, let’s figure out something to do. I hardly have any gas left. Anita: All right. Let’s go catch some rays at the municipal pool. (She cranks the tunes) Lotta: Change the station, I hate this song.

Students found many and various ways to fill the hours between the 2:20 "freedom" bell and the ominous clanging of the 7:40 morning bell. While these hours were perhaps less educational than those spent in school, they were much more enjoyable and provided welcome relief from equations, formulas and dangling participles. Concerts and movies were, as always, popular forms of entertainment. Performers such as Bruce Springsteen and The Cars attracted large and enthusiastic crowds. Food was an ever-present thought on the minds of many. This made Perkin's a popular spot, particularly among Sophomores who appreciated the fact that it was walking distance from school. The more culturally inclined enjoyed concerts at Orchestra Hall, theater at the Guthrie and Dudley Higgs Brave New Workshop or musicals at the Orpheum. Others enjoyed quiet evenings at home, preferably with a member of the opposite sex. Still others could be found driving around late at night with a trunk full of toilet paper, leaves, or “For Sale” signs with which a friend could be victimized. Unfortunately for some, these activities somehow managed to take precedence over health tests, history projects and reading Econ. In spite of this, students could still be found looking for the good times.

The coronation of the last Edina East Royal Court involved traditional aspects as well as a few unexpected ones. As M.C.s Gail Simmons and Pete Wemeir intoduced the royal court, 18 seniors chosen by the senior class, the audience was amused to see the “men” wearing top hats, white ties, and tails. Then, when the much anticipated moment arrived, returning Queen Sara Will-son crowned Stu Grubb as this year’s king. Instead of revealing the new queen the traditional way, all of the men joined Stu in a huddle, until finally, Suzanne Laukka was chosen as the new queen. The audience shared Stu’s and Suzanne’s enthusiasm as they were announced the last King and Queen of Edina East. The night of coronation began, for the court members, an exciting week filled with such activities as breakfasts, dinners, and an overnight trip spent at Lisa Adamovich’s cabin. Court member Steve Teynor summed up that night by saying, “I did as much in that one night as I have hoped to do in one week.” The final event of the week was the Homecoming dance. As Queen Suzanne decreed, student and alumni participated in the Royal Ball “with sincere joy.” The Homecoming dance was held in the front foyer which had been transformed into a cruiseship, the Edina Express. After signing in, couples were greeted by various sea-creatures which peered at them through portholes. Music was provided by Brazz, a seven-member band whose music was outstanding. After dancing much of the night away, many couples attended parties at one of several hotel rooms rented for the occasion, capping off a memorable night.

HOMECOMING DANCE 17Sentiment And Celebration When everyone found out Homecoming 1980 would be East’s last, they were determined to make it the best. Preparations began in the 79-80 school year with many students, faculty, and alumni working on various committees. People most responsible for the excellent outcome included Paul Patzloff, Kay Vermeer, Stacey Kamps, Delmar Freder-ickson, Bob Finkenaur, Marilyn Pertl, and Polly Peterson. Anyone involved with Edina-East was informed about the big event which planned to “Teach the Birds About the Bees.” The Edina Fire Department mounted a sign on the wa-tertower and the Minneapolis Lutheran High School students put up a good luck poster in the lunch room foyer. The pepfest, with decorations de- picting the Twilight Zone, was an hour filled with so much spirit that it surprised many visitors. After entering the Twilight Zone, high school and junior high students were entertained by M.C.’s Bob Barth and Paul Patzloff. The Royal Court was received enthusiastically by the crowd, especially when the senior men came out wearing bizarre footwear. A number of organizations put on various original skits. Among these skits were “Rollie Ring in the Twilight Zone,” by Images, “The Five Steps of a Goodnight Kiss,” by Whigrean, and “A Political Campaign,” by the teachers. “The Pun-kettes,” “King Butt,” and “The Twit Races” were presented by the sophomore, junior, and senior classes, respectively. A couple of hours later, part of the Edina community became involved in East’s last Homecoming parade. The parade included the 1980 Royal Court, 18 past Kings and Queens from 1949 to 1980, and a number of floats. The junior class, whose float bore the slogan “Teach the Birds About the Bees,” won first place for the second year in a row. Homecoming ended on a disappointing note. East led for the majority of the game 6-0, but the Orioles scored with 1:53 left in the game, defeating East by a score of 7 to 6. The final score combined with the freezing weather couldn’t drown the excitement, but the sadness of the loss seemed appropriate with the realization that Edina-East would never again play a homecoming game.

The play revolved around the people involved in a European carnival and an orphaned girl who joined their ranks. Lili, played by Ann Fischer, came to the carnival in search of a job after the death of her father. She was immediately dazzled by the presence of the magician, Marco the Magnificent, much to the dismay of his mistress, Rosalie. Paul LaSalle and Leslie Wilson provided excellent portrayals of Marco and Rosalie. Alsom dismayed by Lili’s awe of Marco was Paul Barthelet, the carnival’s puppeteer, played by Steve Ryan, who fell in love with Lili. Phil Holm and Tom Kruppstadt added humor and color to the show with their portrayals as Jacquot and Schlegel. Cast members were selected on the basis of singing and acting ability by Nancy Anderson, the artistic director, Barbara Bauman, the music director, and Louis Moreno the orchestra conductor. Rehearsals were held daily for six weeks in preparation for the performance. “Carnival’’ was unique in that each cast member had a specific and unique character. Unlike many musicals in which the chorus is made up of nondescript “townspeople”, “Carnival" called for a troupe of jugglers, Siamese twins, harem girls, acrobats, clowns, dancers and roustabouts. Cast members who were not specifically mentioned in the script chose names for themselves and were encouraged to create individual characters. This made the play more colorful and enjoyable for both the cast ad the audience. Senior Steve Ryan remembered, “My greatest thrill was watching my fellow actors transform into their characters.” Top: Phil Holm gives Ann Fischer some advice on love.

To fill this time they found pursuits that ranged from Junior Achievement to rele-gious fellowship. Junior Achievement filled the gap for many by providing a chance to learn the basic functions of business. Participants met weekly to plan and organize the production and sale of a product or service. J.A. also provided an opportunity for students to meet new people, and many lasting friendships were formed. J.A. attracted a diverse group of people who shared both their varied abilities as well as their common interests. Those with unusual talents could often be found at one of serveral activities aimed at improving one’s abilities. The Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphony, the Braemarette Skating Club, the Minnesota School of Dance and the Children’s Theater Company each provided challenges which could not be found at school. Many students found various types of volunteer work both challenging and rewarding, Candy Striping at a local hospital and coaching a park board team were both popular ways of sharing one’s services. Edina was unique in that many students were involved in some type of religious fellowship. Whether this strong interest was due to a social attraction or religious convictions was a subject of debate. Nevertheless, groups such as Pilgrim Fellowship were well attended. Hi-League and Pilgrim Fellowship were both sponsored by local churches and met on Sunday evenings. Cross roads Coffeehouse was held on Saturday nights and hosted Christian singers and groups each week. Young Life and Campus Life were nationally sponsored and held their meetings at the homes of various participants. Several smaller groups and Bible studies were also held weekly. For the most part these were organized by an individual or a group of friends. Some of the interest in youth fellowship could be attributed to the social opportunities that youth groups provided. Others felt a need to both express and share their faith. The majority of those involved were attracted by a combination of these factors. Although the activities in which students participated were diverse, each provided the opportunities to make new friends and experience personal growth.

The energy of students, directors, and parents was the essential ingredient for the excellent results. Long hours of practice (three nights a week for about six weeks) contributed to the highly polished performances. In addition to the four regular shows, a benefit concert was presented. Under the direction of Robert EUedge, East sophomores, juniors. and seniors strove to make the last Pop Concert the best ever. The first half of the concert began with a sentimental song written and sung by Mr. Elledge. It also included a variety of other songs and skits, highlighted by “Alfie," directed by Mrs. Elledge, and a humorous skit called “The Elledge of Oz.” This half ended on a spectacular note, with an exciting performance by the stage-band directed by Phil Holm and Jim List. The second half featured selections from three Broadway musicals, plus some extra attractions. The first Broadway hit, “Cabaret,” was headed by the songs and charms of Paul Patzloff, along with a number of dancers clad in bright-colored satin. The next musical, “Annie,” featured several talented solos by Clarissa Jones as Annie and Brian Ens-minger as Daddy Warbucks. Because “Annie” was such a contemporary production, it was an added attraction for the audience. “Hello Dolly” was the last Broadway play presented, and Carleen Dale, dressed in red satin, ruffles, and feathers, highlighted the elaborate scene in a number of singing performances, Adding to the glamour was a tuxedoed chorus of guys, and Brian Johnson in an impersonation of Louis Armstrong. This year’s Pop Concert concluded on a very special note, with one last look at the Pop Concerts that Mr. Elledge has directed since 1972. “Nostalgia,” included many solo performances of highlights from the past nine shows. The closing number recaptured last year’s favorite: “One,” the theme from the Broadway hit “Chorus Line.” Reminiscing over previous performances added sentimental flavor to this year’s show, and proved to be an exceptional finale for East’s last Pop Concert. Above: Dressed in their Sunday beat, "Hello Dolly" cast members dance a delightful routine.

POP CONCERT 25Singing And Stringing The winter concerts last year included the orchestra’s presentation of Cabaret and Edina-East Concert Choir performance of Sleighbells and Noels. The meager attendance for both concerts didn’t damper each casts’ spirit, and both discovered the meaning of the old Broadway maxim; “The show must go on.” The holiday concert was set in the scene of Dicken’s London with authentic costumes adding to the festive mood. The choir invited extra support from the orchestra and the Abbinante family as well as various accompanists. This provided variety and a fast pace show. Highlights of the night included the challenging “Ceremony of Carols” and “The Night Before Christmas” sung by the East Side Singers. Senior Women’s Varsity surprised the audiences with their delightful version of the “Mister Santa" song. The concert ended traditionally with the Halleluja chorus and the participation of the audience. The 1980 Cabaret Concert entertained those who were fortunate enough to attend. The opening half contained various classical pieces. After a short intermission, the concert livened up with songs and costumes from the 60’s, featuring well-known Beatles’ songs like “Hard Day’sNight.”Soloist,Scott Backus, recreated hits from the Rolling Stones, rounding off the tribute to the 60’s. The high point of the show was the moonlighting skit, a parody of Neil Armstrong’s first step for mankind. The night ended with the traditional “Pops Hoe Down.” Students answered the challenge of performing with exciting spirit in the two winter concerts.

Erin Jennings and Rich May emphasize an important cello phrase. WINTER CONCERTS 27Here Today, Gone With the dawn of a new decade, new trends were created. This year, newer styles and traditional ones were making the fashion scenes. Western wear was a big trendsetter, especially among girls. Both guys and girls adopted the “preppy” look. For guys this meant such styles as button-down shirts and v-neck sweaters, corduroy pants, and boater shoes. For girls, it meant fashions such as pleated skirts and matching sweaters, or pants and corduroy blazers. However, the majority of East’s students observed comfortable styles before fashionable ones, and the more traditional, casual clothes remained most popular. These styles included turtlenecks, sweatshirts, t-shirts, Levis, flannel shirts, and tennis shoes. Clothing wasn’t the only changing trend. A fashionable hairstyle for sophomore, junior, and senior girls was long hair and bangs, while many senior guys tried the bearded look. As for music, the disco craze was out. Punk still rocked on, though New Wave music was rolling in strong. The new wave scene brought not only a new kind of modern music, but also a new type of dancing. However, rock and roll music dominated over New Wave, and groups such as Bruce Springsteen and the Eagles were favored. Most East students agreed with Billy Joel in saying, “It’s still rock and roll to me.” Trends in clothes, hairstyles, and music were expected to vary every year. Because new fads were often popular, many students found themselves conforming to new trends. Tomorrow Top: Clad in cowboy boots, beaded belt, and fringed blouse.

It was one of those romances that had almost no chance of developing without some mysterious circumstance. It just so happened that Sno-Daze and the Sweetheart Dance were coming up, and Carolyn was going to get the chance she needed. Cupid’s arrow was cocked and it was aimed directly at Steve. The first phase of Carolyn’s plan was to “accidentally” talk to Steve, so he would get her sweetheart button. Then she could beg him to give it back. Her plan worked, and the ice was broken. Carolyn was now on the move. The day after that she sent Steve a kiss-o-gram and signed it, “your secret admirer.” Steve received a blue carnation from Carolyn, but this time she signed her name on the message. By this time, Carolyn’s hopes were really high, and she had the courage to pop the question. On the way to the pepfest, Carolyn met Steve in the hall, and they enjoyed each other’s company during one of the best pepfests in the history of Edina-East. While the twelve-ettes made the pepfest humorous, the coronation of Carleen Dale and Paul Patzloff presented a royal air of excitement. The sexy Solid Gold dancers, the Hornettes’ dance, and an inflatable lady provided the ideal atmosphere for Carolyn to voice her secret desire. Steve answered with a many times practiced “yes” and the date for the Sweetheart Dance was set. As the two left the gym, Cupid smiled with delight at his success of matching another Valentine’s couple. Upper Left: Betsy Kjellsca and James Beal shares tender moment at the Sweetheart dance.

Undoubtedly the greatest and most joyous event of this year was the release of the American hostages in Iran. Along with their return came a spirit of nationalism which was uncommon in our life times. The yellow ribbon became the symbol of welcoming the hostages home, and miles of ribbon were displayed all over the country. 1980 also saw the election of our 40th President, Ronald Reagan. He defeated President Jimmy Carter and independent John Anderson while riding a new tide of political conservatism. The 1980 Olympics brought both triumph and disappointment. The triumph was found in the U.S. Hockey Team’s incredible victory over the Soviet Union en route to their gold medal. Unfortunately hundreds of athletes had to abandon their hopes when the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan brought about the U.S. boycott of the Summer Games in Moscow. Many people found new freedoms. Among these were some 125,000 Cuban refugees who left their homes and came to the United States. Workers in Poland held massive strikes and for the first time secured some concessions from their communist government. The most explosive event was the massive eruption of Mount St. Helens which leveled hundreds of acres of forest and caused large scale flooding. Several earthquakes shook southern Italy and killed over .3000 people. 84 people were killed in a tragic fire at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. 1980 also meant the losses of Mae West, Peter Sellers and Alfred Hitchcock. Thousands mourned for musician John Lennon who was shot in New York. The most critical local news was the impending merger of the two Edina High schools and the closing of the Edina-East building. Like the rest of the news of 1980-81 this was met with both excitement, trepidation and hope. Above: The faces of the victor and the vanquished reflect the outcome of the 1980 election.

AftC0 34 LUTHERANSThe New Kids In School Many Edina East students had to share rooms with brothers and sisters, wardrobes with sisters, and cars with Mom and Dad, but did that mean they had to share their school too? It did this year. East students found themselves sharing their building with the Minneapolis Lutheran High School. We shared the same cafeteria, library, locker rooms, gym, and auditorium. Initially, the majority of East’s students resented the thought. Everyone wondered how the two schedules would be arranged so they wouldn’t clash, and how the student bodies would interact. When the 1980-81 school year began, the Lutheran High School’s sign, which was outside the building next to Edina East’s sign, was torn down. This led many to think that another possible rivalry might form. But, as the year progressed, no more vandalism occurred. In fact, each school had occasions to express its appreciation toward the other. For East’s Homecoming, the Lutherans put up a good luck poster which had been signed by every Lutheran student. The Hornets prepared a good luck banner for the Lancer’s Homecoming also. As the year went on, East students realized that having another school in the same building wasn’t such a big deal. Use of all rooms was justly ar- ranged, and the two school’s schedules were planned so that students from one school hardly saw students from the other. Edina East student Steve Sutherland commented that “I don’t see them that often. It seems like our schedules are so different.” For many East students, the only time they saw the Lutherans was when they walked down the ‘‘Lutheran hall” to peek in their classrooms. As expected, the Lutherans turned out to be regular sophomores, juniors, and seniors just as those from East. The situation ended up to have been a much greater change for the lancers than it was for the Hornets.

They lived up to the expectations of their coaches, teachers, parents, and peers. A gymnastics coach would see Nancy in a different light than a teacher or her mother. Tracing the daily routine of a stereotype best exemplified this social phenomenon. On Monday morning Joseph alternated explanations of his Friday night whereabouts with spoonfuls of Froot Loops. He also found time for an intellectual discussion of the Republican platform with his father. On the way to school Joe and his liberal friend, Zach lit up cigarettes, and talked about the Bruce Springsteen concert. During homeroom, Joe made a play for the “fox” behind him. Quickly, he discerned her subtle hint of rejection; when she announced that she had to cram for a test and then flirted with Joe’s best friend. Thoroughly depressed, Joe shrunk in his desk and wasted the remainder of his physics class in a daze. The bell transformed our hero back into Joe Cool. He met with his gang at snack break where they teased the lunch ladies and placed bets on the upcoming Vikings game. The next hour Joe became a conscientious student in the eyes of his history teacher. He diligently put the finishing touches on his homework assignment and passed the rest of the hour with flying colors. The day dragged on, but, finally, Joe was released to go to football practice. His coach viewed him as Super Jock Joe, and Joe lived up to his nickname. After a long tiring workout, Joe went home to dinner, homework, and M.A.S.H., and once again assumed his relaxed personality in the company of his family. l.eft: The metamorphosis ot Peggy’ Curdle: from Itored and slumbering. to .studious and attentive, to unruly and obnoxious.

Left: To Mr. Kosteliz, every highschoolguy is a walking prospect for the football team. OUR MANY FACESOne Last Look ... at the organizations which were a catalyst of individuality at Edina-East. For organizations provided a chance for us to expose our talents which otherwise might have remained dormant. We explored the art of performing and the magic of creating. Whether our interest favored music, dancing, cheering, leading, writing, or practical learning we devoted our efforts to a cause we felt worthwhile. Spring tryouts were the inescapable beginnings to a career in an organization. Applications, interviews, auditions, and campaigns were the harrying requirements for acceptance to various clubs. Rejection was heartbreaking yet, acceptance was initially less than glorious. Midnight congratulations and humiliating initiations caused us to question our reasons for applying in the first place. New friendships and exciting responsibilities soon settled any doubts. Long summer practices, workshops, deadlines, and frustrating rehearsals frequently dampened an organizations spirit, but the satisfaction of accomplishment compensated for any setback. When we take One Last Look at our year dedicated to an organization we savor memorable and rewarding experiences.

Behind the closed doors of room 101, they diligently worked to inspire school spirit, plan fundraising activities and facilitate the merger. The Student Council prepared pepfests to psyche up the student body for sports events, and added a new twist. Enthusiasm emerged from class competitions the Council devised for pepfests. Homerooms also competed for points by submitting entries for the worst joke of the week. The homerooms not only competed for themselves, but for charity. The Student Council sponsored a Charity Week in which many fundraising projects were successful. A trophy was awarded to the homeroom that raised the most money. The Council also held a canned food drive during the Thanksgiving season. The Council worked in conjunction with West’s Council to discover and iron out any possible problems that the merger entailed. They formulated the ’81-’82 academic schedule, blended the two constitutions, and began fusing the East and West student bodies. Homecoming was a tremendous success highlighted by a reunion attended by 500 alumni. During the half-time parade, the alumni took a trip down Edina-East’s memory lane. The Sno-Daze festivities were extended to two weeks, helping students through the February blahs. Advisor Del Fredrickson encouraged the Student Council officers, President Brad Duhaime, Vice President Eve Bigelow, Secretary Paul Patzloff, and Treasurer Kristen Lindquist, in their decisions and activities. The officers responded by devoting long hours and hard work to their school.

STUDENT COUNCIL 41Classy Officers Once again this year, the class officers quietly and efficiently went about their business of making the big events of the school year successful. The primary concern of senior class officers Don Eischens, Brian Ensminger, Loginn Kapitan and Laura Westlund was organizing graduation. Preparations for the final ceremony began in early November. Every detail was planned, from measurement for and distribution of caps and gowns to the selling of diploma covers. Junior class officers Sue Abrell, Kathy Otness, Sue Niday and Stephanie Woodhead faced the enormous task of raising three thousand dollars to put on Prom. They diligently worked on a number of fund-raisers, including a twelve hour rock-a-thon, for which they received financial pledges from other students. Another money-maker was the annual Sadie Hawkins Dance, a popular westernstyle hoedown. Also involved in fund-raising events were sophomore class officers Jim Beal, Ted Cadwell, Todd Hanson and Jeff Jensen. They concentrated their efforts on car washes, but were forced to rely on patronage of juniors and seniors, as most fellow sophomores rode vehicles of the two-wheeled variety. Elected each spring by classmates, the officers were the leaders and spokes persons of their respective classes. They worked to aid the school in general and their class in particular. “I enjoy serving my class in a meaningful way.” -Loginn Kapitan, 12 ‘‘Fun! ... Exciting! ... Fantastic! ... WOW!!” -Jeff Jensen, 10 Above: Senior class president Brian Ensminger measures carefully to insure a ( crfeel fit for Mark Lomauro’s cap and gown. 42 CLASS OFFICERS Top: Sue Abrell risks hypothermia to make a buck for the junior class rock-a-thon.

CLASS OFFICERS 43Note-torious The Concert Band performed with energy, skill and enthusiasm producing concerts with a professional flair. Challenging music and complex dance routines were, as in past years, well-rehearsed and excellently performed. The band consisted of about 75 members many of whom were underclassmen. The individuals had varied backgrounds and interests, and each musician shared his special talents with the group. Two essential qualities of all of the band members were dedication and a love for performing. Often, the only motivating force after hours of rehearsals was the anticipation of the show. In addition to dedicated members, outstanding leadership was needed to achieve perfection. Robert El-ledge, the band’s director, invested long hours in organization. Mrs. El-ledge, the band council, and senior members of the band were other valuable assets. Band camp opened the band’s season. Highlighted by the ever-popular initiations, camp fostered new friendships and strengthened old ones. “C.B.” presented several concerts this year. The Pop Concert highlighted the season with selections from "Annie” and other Broadway plays. The Stage Band once again performed with inspiration, and the Spring Concert, which included alumni in some of its numbers, closed the year. Over the past few years the band welcomed several outstanding guest stars.Thisyear M aynard Ferguson and his band thrilled a capacity audience during a concert at Edina-East. The memorable performance inspired the band members to achieve their musical potential.

CONCERT BAND 45Good Clean Fun "With my hair stiff from dried eggs and flour, my clothes drenched in shaving cream, and my face smeared with shoe polish, I wondered if making this organization was worth it. A sudden surge of rebellion came over me. I discussed the idea of revolt with my fellow victims, and the vote was unanimous. We secretly confiscated the ketchup, jello, and extra shaving cream ... and retaliated. The initiators were experienced and ready. Our insurrection was quickly suppressed, and instead of overcoming the "old guys", we ended up in the mud pits. We knew our place then — we were nothing but dirt!” The preceding experience was a typical one for new members at organization initiations. Those "lucky” students who yelled, "I MADE IT!” last spring, weren’t so exuberant when they attended their "welcoming party”. The good, clean fun of initiations often turned into messy episodes. New Buzzette staffers discovered that when jello bits were dropped into their mouths — more often than not — landing off target, on face. Naive Whigrean initiates, while dutifully bobbing for Lifesavers in a bowl of flour, hard eggs smashed on their heads. These exhibitions only started the initiator’s fun! Smushing mustard and mayonnaise mixtures in the intiate’s hair, shaving water balloons suspended over the initiate’s head, skipping around 50 th with lipstick all over the initiate’s face, squirting whipped cream down the initiate’s shirt, were among the many initiation tortures. The degree to which the Cheerleaders, Hornettes, and Bandies were initiated was determined by an initiation factor. The victims were ordered to do various activities, and if they disobeyed, the factor increased. The higher the factor, the more dreaded the initiation became. For instance, the Hornettes were required to wear bug costumes everywhere for a week. If one was caught out of "uniform”, her initiation factor increased. Cheerleaders had a similar ritual, except they were forced to wear more obscene attire. The band actually had a Kangaroo Court to determine if the newly-picked band member had obeyed his assigned master, who was an old ban-die. Of course, everyone was declared guilty and given a harsh sentence. The punishments included encounters with shaving cream, tabasco sauce, and various other unknown substances. The initiations for Cheerleaders, Hornettes, and Bandies took place at the same location — Band Camp. Between practices, the initiates experienced portions of the real initiation, but they received the real thing on the last day. The week was a time when the groups grew closer and learned to perform together. Upper Right: At her initiation, Sue Nlday finds out that Whigrean is a sticky business.

INITIATIONS 47One Last “Smash” Under the direction of Gary Lundgren, the Varsity Band experienced a year of rewards and friendships. After the Marching Band split, the Varsity Band began a career of its own. During the winter season, the Varsity Band provided Hornet hockey fans with music and spirit. The hand enthusiastically anticipated playing at the games. If the team did well, the band was on their way to the State Hockey Tournament. Supplementing the arousing student spirit at pep fests and sports events, the Varsity Band had a hectic concert schedule. The first of these concerts was the Christmas Concert at the Ebenezer Retirement Home. Their highlight performance was the Smash Concert in April. This much anticipated concert proved to be a delight once again. The fun of performing in the varity show was perhaps exceeded by the Tour. Tour was the last fling of the band as a whole. An important aspect of the band included learning to be an iminent part of the group and disciplining one’s self to the hours of rehearsals. When asked about the band as a whole, Mr. Lundgren replied, “We have a large group of enthusiastic kids eager to make the band’s music perfect and to strive for musical sue- M “Band is worthwhile, it’s rewarding to perform a well done concert.” -Wendy Leaderach, 11 "Varsity Band is a great time to work and play with friends." -Steve Lee, 12 Top: Kim Gubrud plays her french horn passage while Tracy Albinson takes note of a musical rest.

The new director was Louis Moreno, previously a music teacher in San Antonio, Texas. Mr. Moreno said he was pleased to find the orchestra organized and talented. The twenty-seven orchestra members learned some challenging pieces of music in preparation for their main concerts. The musicians were featured in the fall dramatic presentation of Carnival, as well as their annual Cabaret Concert and Formal Spring Concert and Tour. Student leaders of the orchestra were President Karen Root and Secretary-Treasurer Marci Newquist. Director Moreno was able to hear what a combined East-West orchestra would sound like when both performed a joint concert for the Music Educators National Conference this spring. Mr. Moreno summed up his feelings by saying, “Orchestra was a responsible, hardworking group that was willing to learn and enjoy this type of music and medium.” “Orchestra is really very fantastic!” -Karen Root, 12 "It’s an easy way to end the day.” -Tami Liljenquist, 12 Above: First year director Louis Moreno orchestrates the musical action. 50 ORCHESTRAAbove: Orchestra: Front row- L.

Quality Not Quantity This year’s Concert Choir and East-Side Singers disproved the dogma of “The bigger the better.” Under the direction of Barbara Bauman, the choirs compensated for their smaller ranks with enthusiastic and vibrant talent. Mrs. Bauman enjoyed leading a smaller group, and she said, "It was easier to work on a one to one basis, and the group had a better chance to get acquainted.” “Party Advisor” Linda Case planned outside activities for the choirs. Concert Choir had its first opportunity to demonstrate their talent at the annual Holiday Concert. Two outstanding pieces were “Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind” and “Selections from Ceremony of Carols”. They also turned in excellent performances at the Masterpiece Concert and Jubil-East. The Concert Choirs of East and West hosted the Music Educator’s National Conference in downtown Minneapolis in the spring. They blended their voices for the first time, presenting the audience with what the merge promised. The East-Side Singers captivated various audiences throughout the Twin Cities. They performed at malls and churches. The eager vocalists had to rise early on Wednesday mornings to attend 6:45 practice. With each performance the choir’s dedication and talent were evident. The Choir Board was a select group who planned details of concerts and made decisions for the choirs. The Choir Board, Mrs. Bauman, and the vocalists contributed to give us one last look at the vocal talent Edina-East possessed. “We were small — but powerful. Linda Case, 12 “Choir would have been better with more tenors and basses, but all in all it was a great way to make friends." -Connie Carlson, 11 CHOIR 53The Last Hurrah The Varsity and B-squad cheerleaders understood the importance of their final year at Edina-East. The girls worked hard to build a stronger atmosphere of spirit at all sports events and pepfests. These cheerleaders started practicing early in the summer, with help from co-captains Kathy Mach and Nancy Blake, perfecting old cheers and creating new ones. The long hours of workouts and dedication were worth it every time they encouraged the crowds to cheer the team to a victory. Their duty didn’t stop at “pysch-ing up” the crowds. The cheerleaders also worked at getting the players excited for each game. This meant making banners, decorating lockers, baking cookies, T.P.ing houses and visiting players. Consequently, the cheerleaders played a part in each victory this year. Whenever the girls could spare some time, they got together for fun. They often held potluck dinners and slumber parties at their respective homes, sometimes to the aggravation of their parents. This year there was a new sixth-hour study hall for the cheerleaders. Advisor Pacy Erck, with the crazy personality of a teenager, added to the fun and helped create a unity in the squad. The time the cheerleaders spent with one another helped them get to know each other, begin new friendships, and strengthen old ones. The 1980-81 cheerleading squad of Edina-East performed brilliantly in one ‘‘last hurrah!” ‘‘Cheerleading has provided many lasting memories and fun times.” -Suzy Sullivan, 11 "It’s been a boo-boo of a year!” Julie Jenewein, 11 Top: Polly Johnson chats with mascot Kelly Panchot before they perform a homecttm-inn cheer.

Many foreign students left their home countries to take advantage of the education available to them here. The two organizations that provided this opportunity were A.F.S. (American Field Service) and A.B.C. (A Better Chance). A.B.C. was a nonprofit nationwide organization that emphasized the improvement of education for inner city minorities. Applicants for the program were selected according to personality, test scores, and academic promise. The girls stayed in a house on France Ave. and the boys stayed with various host families. They enjoyed the responsibilities and fun of living away from home. They especially liked picnics, birthday celebrations, casual gatherings, and Wednesday night dinners, to which the A.B.C. boys were invited. Lim Sanpitak was the only A.F.S. student at Edina East this year. He quickly noticed the cultural differences between his home country and the United States. Lim decided that school is easier here than in Thailand.

ABC AFS 59Learning A Living Vo-Tech and D.E.C.A., two educational organizations that were not visible to the majority of the student body, operated off school grounds, and gave students challenging and practical work experiences. Vo-Tech gave individuals the chance to pursue their special interests. Each afternoon juniors and seniors concentrated their efforts and abilities in fields ranging from graphic arts to horse care and training, and received high school credit. The instructors and facilities were outstanding, enabling students to look closely at lifetime occupational possibilities. D.E.C.A., the Distributive Educational Clubs of America, commonly referred to as the “work program,” consisted of fifteen seniors who wished to develop their business skills and apply them daily. Classroom projects, monthly breakfast meetings, and work performed daily for pay, exposed these students to business careers and gave them a feeling of independence and an opportunity for personal advancement. “I have learned many skills and been able to get a good job as a draftsman." -John Berquam. “The bus ride was half the fun.” -Todd Fisher, 12 - Top: Judd Cbriatiaoaen find himself overloaded while operating the switchboard at Target.

The Spanish Club provided an opportunity for students to learn more about Spanish culture and language. Students enrolled in Spanish classes were eligible to join, and this year’s club, although small, had dedicated and enthusiastic members. Under the leadership of advisor Sendra Wilbright, and officers Bob Griswold, Dirk Peterson, Richard Cooke, and Sheryl Hel-gemoe, doughnut and candy sales were planned to fund numerous social gatherings. In addition to pot lucks and informal parties, the Spanish Club had three traditional parties; the Halloween and Christmas parties, and the Spring Fiesta, which was held at a local Mexican restaurant. The Fiesta included the coronation of a new Spanish king and queen by this year’s royalty, Barb Cote and Mark Dornblaser. The Spanish Club fostered the development of many new friendships. It also helped its members to learn about the Spanish people in a re- laxed. informal and fun way. The debate team began preparing for its season early in the summer. Members of the team attended workshops at Augustana and Mankato and began research on this year’s topic: "should the federal government initiate and inforce safety guarantees on consumer goods?" With the guidance and encouragement of coaches, Cris Ross and Scot Thon, the team planned its strategy and improved its debating skills. The team was large and competitive. It consisted of many new members and a few very strong veterans, all of whom researched for endless hours. Tournaments each weekend and three overnights unified the team and increased individual debating techniques. In addition to the trophies and other awards that they received, the debaters were rewarded for their efforts with a feeling of accomplishment and a bundle of new friends. The members found debate to be not only challenging, but also an excellent learning experience. Top: At a weekend car wash. Liz Blake and Maggie Kelley raise money for Spanish Club.

Fit To Print Sixth hour in room 129 was the daily meeting place for the staff of the school newspaper, the Buz-zette. A group of twenty-three semi-crazed students, led by Editor-in-Chief Sandy Hoppenrath and assistant Editor Anna Marchuk, were known to use the hour to blast the stereo and munch popcorn. However, amid the chaos, there was work to be done, and the Buzzet-ters produced twelve issues of the paper, a considerable improvement over a few years ago when only four issues were printed. Work for each edition began with a group session to decide what to write about. In addition to regular features such as the Roving Eye and an editorial, articles were written on various sports, organizations, and concerts. In one controversial issue, a Buzzette poll showed that most East students cheat. All the work, under the direction of adviser Dave Langholz, was completed in the unique Buzzette room, decorated in an Early Subway motif, with posters on the walls and dead body outlines on the floor. Next year, the paper will move to new headquarters at Edina-West, and become the Zephyrus. However, the memory of Buzzette will undoubtedly live on, and will permanently affect ex-staffers. m “Buzzette: an intensely conducive and intriguing experience.” -Dave Bonello, 11 © “Buzzette is a synthesis of highly creative, talented minds subliminat-ing in the form of masterpiece literature...and popcorn.“-Anna Marchuk, 12 BUZZETTE 65Literarily Speaking Images on the Wind was perennially Edina-East’s award winning literary art magazine. The magazine was a creative collection of student art and literary work including: photography, paintings, poetry, and prose. The staff spent many hours selecting the entries submitted by the students that best represented the thoughts and feelings of Edina-East’s students, and presented them w'ith imaginative lay-outs. The staff was a very united and talented group of students under the direction of editor Kathryn Koessel and advisor Joan Schulz. Their ingenuity was useful in adding craziness into a hum-drum day. One way they accomplished this was by planning activities with Whigrean and Buzzette, such as the annual Whigrean and Images Halloween Party and the Sunset Potluck Picnic. Images also succeeded in creating a fun atmosphere by making sure there was enough food for fourth hour and blending the elements of a party with their deadlines. During the Homecoming week the staff got together and came up with a successful skit about the thirty years Rollie Ring had been at Edina-East and how he lost hair each decade. They also had an imaginative Homecoming float that displayed the slogan, “Double-stuff the Orioles.” Mrs. Schulz thought that the main difference between this year’s staff and other years was. “More boys.” ! “It was great, to work on a book with such high qualities.” -Stephanie Woodhead, 11 A : "It was satisfying to work on the book because it was rewarding to see the ends results.” -Mace Pfutzen-reuter, 12 Top: Imagers literally scrape the bottom of the barrel for their staffers.

IMAGES 67LMlLlllil-S Boxes strewn everywhere, spilled popcorn in and on each square inch of space, scattered record albums, a wet deck of cards, stacks of shredded paper, dried-up food, and overturned furniture, resembling a natural disaster or the destruction of vandals; these were the remains of a publications deadline. When a weekend of laughing, pigging-out, dancing, goofing around, and lots of working was over, it was all that was left of an unsuspecting parents’ home. Meeting deadlines was a task common to almost all organizations. Literary groups, such as Buzzette, Images, and Whigrean, had to meet printers’ deadlines. Other groups, such as Hornettes, choir, orchestra, and band, prepared for performances. Deadlines were characterized by tension and a mad-rush to complete unfinished tasks. In many cases, procrastination was the cause of the confusion. The excuse given for an unfinished newspaper article or yearbook spread was usually, ”1 was too busy!” or "Everyone I needed to talk to was out of town,’’ and for the de-sparate staffer the excuse was simply, “I forgot." Another cause of tension was tight scheduling. The basketball season, for example, meant hours of strenuous practicing for the Hornettes in order to provide their traditional high-quality entertainment. Creating and learning at times, two dances in one week entailed late practices and team work. Sharing stage time was an inconvenience which forced the choir and orchestra to rehearse intensely. Preparations for band concerts, like Pops and 68 DEADLINES I.is Adamovich arrive at deadline with an arm full nl ftiHrtlte I topi. i mauled h a herd ol ravenous Whigreaners ImiddleI. and is lett with a cookie crumb and a banana peel (bottomI. Smash, were also hectic. The effort required to put on a show was often underestimated when rehearsing began. It was compensated for with late night rehearsals as opening night approached. One way of easing deadline tensions was through the consumption of junk food. Ravenous organization members devoured mass quantities of food during the course of the year. Winchell’s runs and emergency pizza calls were two popular solutions to killing late night hunger attacks. It did not take long for a new staffer to discovere why his Images try-out interviewer had asked, "Did you mind gaining 10 pounds?” During the week of a concert or deadline, bleary-eyed musicians or staff members could be spotted walking into walls, sleeping in class, pleading for homework extensions, or murmuring senselessly to themselves. All students involved in organizations made innumerable sacrifices. Senior leaders and editors discovered their responsibilities often demanded even further sacrifice. However, most organization members agreed that the sacrifices of time and energy were worthwhile. Performing and seeing completed work was extremely gratifying. Developing one’s skill in writing, photography, music or dance was also rewarding and enjoyable. But most important of all was the beginning and growth of friendships and the countless memories that w Editors’ note: This copy is incomplete due to the fact that the staffer was unable to meet a deadline.florvptteS.

In all of us there existed a childlike curiosity; a desire to learn. Edina-East provided a comprehensive curriculum, excellent facilities, and an experienced faculty that enabled us to expand our horizons. We approached our education in ways as varied as our personal characters. Some of us elected to forego intensive studying and chance poor grades while others tackled tough schedules en route to a college career. We pursued specialized interests such as art, acting, or home-economics, in addition to standard English, history, science, and math courses. In all of the boring lectures, tedious assignments, and nights of cramming for tests we made extracurricular discoveries. We emphasized subjects of particular interest and began aspiring to our future vocations. We showed a new respect for our teachers with whom we exchanged friendly discourse instead of bickering over test scores. As our knowledge increased so did our appetite for learning. Genuine concern and relentless effort on the part of both students and faculty combine to form a stimulating atmosphere at Edina-East. The fourteen National Merit semifinalists produced by the class of 1981 certainly reflected that academic tradition.

But Edina East’s making me take some so 1 can get me a diploma. Thats how come 1m in composition now. We is gonna learn about book reports and essay tests and term papers. My teacher talks alot about “developing your writing skills" so i guess we’s doing that to. I got communications too and thats suppose to be all about talking so others can no what your talking about. Some of my friends took acting and stagecraft and 1 herd that they get to act out scenes from plays, do stage lighting, make sets and stuff like that and I got a friend in public speaking who gives talks to the class alot. 1979- 1980: I’m still required to take an English course, so I'm in English Lit. this year. We’re studying English writings starting with the Anglo-Saxon period and going right through to modern times. Some of our assignments are pretty fun, breaking up the monotony of the day at least a little. For example, we do individual projects during the Elizabethan period. 1980-1981: Presently, I am enrolled in a course entitled American Literature I and II. Indepth analysis of the writings of such prominent American authors as Bradford, Paine, Emerson, and Dickinson comprise the major portion of the course load. Creative Writing, emphasizing the amelioration of personal writing style and variety through poetry and prose, satisfies my thirst for a composition oriented course. I consider my experience with the Language Arts department at Edina East invaluable. My writing, reading, and communicating skills and interests have been significantly enhanced.

In the science department, universal extremes were discovered. Biology students investigated the endoplasmic reticulum of cells while chemistry classes combined atoms to produce molecules. Meanwhile, on the roof of the school, astronomy students examined our vast universe through a telescope. Also, physics classes computed the acceleration of falling objects. Once again, science proved to be a very interesting subject. Students in math classes attempted everything from finding geometric structures to corresponding with a complex Control Data computer. Geometry, college algebra and trigonometry. and calculus were the advanced math sequence, with calculus having thirty more students this year than last year. As senior Stu Grubb put it, "Calculus is next to godliness.” Students were also offered a computer class involving a repertoire of three computers-The Apple II, TIES, and the Control Data computer. Students enjoyed this opportunity to increase their knowledge in a new and exciting way. Donna Butterfield- Foods. Foods of Other Cultures. Home Crafts.

INDUSTRIAL ED.Working Hands Students always looked forward to home ec. and art classes. By providing a relaxed, practical atmosphere, these classes gave students a chance to learn without the use of books or lectures. Art classes, such as ceramics, allowed a student freedom to express his talent and originality through exploration and experimentation. Home ec. offered enough sewing classes to suit each student’s needs from beginning to advanced. Creativity in foods classes ranged from every day American foods to foreign dishes such as souffles. Crafts classes, both beginning and advanced, learned the traditional methods of quilting before designing their own patterns. The child care and development classes ran the Hornet’s Nest Activity Center for experience in working with pre-schoolers. In metal and woodworking classes students could not only create and be creative, but had the opportunity to work with machines. Students learned the basics of photography such as using the camera properly and printing pictures on T-shirts, glass, or paper. These classes, provided by the home ec. and art departments, were original in the respect that they presented a break from books. Instead students were able to relax, explore and experiment. 1 Dick Hartman-Advanced Plane and Solid Geometry, College Algebra and Trigonometry, Computer. Mike Herzig-World History.

INDUSTRIAL ED. 81Edina-East experienced a number of stages in its thirty-two years of existence. The differences between these stages were best reflected by Bill Jordan, Pacy Erck, and Dave Langholz, former Edina students who returned as faculty members. Bill Jordan, a counselor who graduated from Edina in 1951, fondly remembered his high school years. As a cheerleader, he inspired enthusiastic crowd response at pepfests. Thirty years later he felt that the cheerleaders were performers rather than leaders. He also remembered a less competitive atmosphere, both academically and athletically. Colleges didn't recognize Edina’s excellence, while other high schools considered a victory over Edina a “piece of cake.” Pacy Erck, a health teacher, graduated from Edina in 1967. One difference she noticed was the lack of opportunity for girls to participate in sports. A program called G.A.A. (Girl’s Athletic Association) was all the school offered, since girls’ varsity sports were non-existent. The members of this program met twice a week to have fun with sports and to occasionally compete with other school. Like Bill Jordan, Miss Erck felt there was more spirit at the pepfests during her high school years. The staff members, in particular, were much more involved with school spirit and other extracurricular activities. She also remembered a very strict dress code in which the girls had to wear skirts and dresses that were a certain length. Guys’ hair had to be kept at an appropriate length. Jeans and T-shirts were forbidden. Dave Langholz, the Buzzette and Whigrean advisor, graduated a few years later in 1971 and remembers a very different Edina-East. The dress code was abolished in his sophomore year by the student body, welcoming jeans and long hair. The school spirit then went steadily down hill, according to Dave. By his senior year, very few people attended games, dances, or even Homecoming. The teachers started to lose control of some students and many students started into the drug and drinking scene. Dave noticed, “The biggest change I’ve seen from ten years ago was a different student attitude toward God. In 1971, the only time you heard the word God at school was when someone was swearing. Now there are many students who stand strong in their faith and speak out.” Top left to right: Bill Jordan, 1951. Pacy Erck, 1967. Dave Langholz, 1971.

Electronics. Whigrean Business Advisor. Dave Langholz-Whigrean Advisor, Buz-zette Advisor Oppor-tune Hours The southern end of Edina-East had somewhat of a mysterious effect on those students who had never participated in the music programs. Countless times each day, students wandered past the forbidden hallways on the first and second floors, wondering what drew hundreds of students behind the closed doors of the choir, orchestra, and band rooms. For many students, the most productive class of their school day was a music class. Whether the student was looking into a possible future in music or just enjoying the benefits of a music class, the programs attracted students of all types. Band students, better known as Bandies, found band to be an extremely rewarding class. Yet, band was hard to refer to as just a class. With so much outside time devoted to rehearsals, playing for athletic events, concerts, and a national tour, it was more like a lifestyle. The number of choir students decreased this year, but the choir still produced several enthusiastic concerts. Leslie Wilson summed up the general opinion of choir members when she said, “I’m in choir because of the people, the chance to strengthen my voice, and most of all because it’s fun!" Orchestra had an exciting year under the direction of a new conductor, Mr. Moreno. They had a fun time practicing for concerts and just “fiddlin’ around.” MUSIC 85It’s “Greek” To Me The reasons for practicing a foreign language varied among the students who enrolled in such courses. One important aspect was that more and more colleges strongly urged stduents to take a foreign language in high school. French, German, and Spanish were the three foreign languages offered at East. In order to make the classes original and more interesting, the teachers employed a variety of teaching methods. For example, the third year French class read a famous French classic called LaFamille Martain. Foreign language classes are more than just subjects. They are organizations with many fun, outside school activities. The Spanish Club engaged in many meetings and parties this year. At these get-togethers members engorged in munchies and practiced their Spanish skills. Perhaps the 1980 Spanish queen, Barb Cote, summed it up best when she said, “Spanish Club does many fun things together. These activities range from a carwash, at which we made sixteen dollars, to a banquet at the end of the year.” Wendy Snelgrove had an opportunity to use her German skills last year on a trip to Europe. She was able to speak German in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. Wendy and some other students challenged themselves by using German as much as possible, like when sight seeing and shopping. Wendy commented, “1 had an edge over the members of the members of the group who did not speak German.” Foreign language classes may have appeared to been an endless cycle of tedious memorization and quizzes. The rewarding part was advancing to more difficult and interesting material. Most vital of all was successfully speaking this foreign tongue.

Because of the rapidly growing field of business, these courses became more popular. In personal typing, beginning and advanced, students learned to touch type accurately and with speed. Bookkeeping covered the basics in accounting and investments. Students also learned about payroll calculation and data processing. Everybody’s Business, a very thorough and interesting course, gave students a chance to observe business operating in realistic situations. This class studied budgeting and banking, and discussed poverty and unemployment problems. Other business courses provided experience in regular office proce- dures using real office equipment. Classes like Shorthand and Notetaking helped students learn to take notes with speed and accuracy. These efficient notetaking techniques were also a helpful method of taking notes for school. Senior Dina Schiedinger commented,‘‘Notetaking is a good class to take because it helps you in all of your other classes. I can take complete, accurate notes with speed.” Senior Lisa Apple-quist added, “A happy hand is a shorthand.” Students participated in business classes with alacrity. Besides providing a solid background for college business courses, these classes opened their eyes to the opportunities and jobs in the business world. Sue Mills- House and Interior Design. Foods.

The families of students were very involved. Parents met on a regular basis with GEAR advisors Lori Goddard, Bruce Swanson, and Jean Widelland FDL advisor Tom Clark to acknowledge the students’ progress and plan their curriculum. GEAR (Goals Encourage Academic Responsibility) met during first and second hour in the upper division and fifth hour in the lower division. The program endeavored to develop responsible school behavior and offered support services to students through individual and group counseling. GEAR encouraged students to make goals toward school attendance, academic achievement, and social and emotional development. Students enjoyed the chance to unwind, challenge themselves, and see the results. Family Designed Learning provided a chance for students to take courses otherwise not offered. The format of FDL was designed for students to use their own creativity in many different ways. For instance, students participated in Latin and Debate, English courses such as English and World Literature, and some students were involved in activities outside of school, such as ice skating at Braemar Arena or Urban Arts at the Children’s Theater. The general impression of FDL students was that they had the chance to do things during school they wouldn’t normally do, and they had fun, too.

The career center proved to be an excellent form of assistance for confused college bound students. One could learn the basic information about colleges such as what occupational fields each school specializes in, tuition, and possible financial aid. The career center also provided facts about various vocations; which fields are growing and promise a fulfilling future as compared to those career opportunities which are becoming over crowded. To aid students with their job of college hunting, the school bought a computer which made available “All you wanted to know about Minnesota colleges but were afraid to ask.” Whether for assistance or just to ex- plore, most every student made a trip to the career center. The library provided an abundance of services depending upon the needs of the student. When term paper time rolled around, Sophomores found themselves practically hyber-nating in the library. Assisting them were helpful librarians, periodicals, encyclopedias, and other books full of information. Because of the many novel reviews assigned for classes such as American Literature, students depended on the library for it’s variety of interesting volumes. Enough information required for almost any kind of report could be obtained from the school’s thorough and sufficient library system. In addition to the material aspect of the library, students found the relaxed atmosphere “quiet” suitable for studying. Maria Wilbright- Spanish, typing-Keith Wiikening- typing.

Edina-East provided an impressive line-up of competitive sports prograr.iS for us. Whether on the B-squad, varsity, or tournament level, we were challenged by our coaches and by our personal drive. We learned from our mistakes and -developed a talent, pride, and determination that enabled us to tower over our competitors. Our lives were molded around practices and games. Pursuing an active social life and completing homework assignments were difficult tasks when we were dominated by coaches, fans, and parents demands. Each day we strived to improve our performances always aiming for possible participation in the State Tournament. Disappointments, hard work, good times, and new friendships all complemented the honor of representing Edina-East in athletics.

With the underdog Hornets trailing 3-2 and time running out in the fourth quarter, captain Mike Burnett plunged up the middle for a touchdown. Unfortunately, this upset victory was not an accurate forecast of the team’s future record. After a few bad breaks the Hornets wound up on the short end of the score six out of nine times this season. The most noticeable of these breaks came in the Burnsville and Jefferson games. Late in the fourth quarter of a scoreless game, Jefferson attempted a field goal. Everyone but the referees thought the kick was wide. Complaints were useless, and the game ended at 3-0. Similarly, with the score tied 8-8 against Burnsville, the Hornets lined up at attempt a field goal before the end of regulation time. The Burnsville players delayed by failing to line up immediately. This forced captain Tadd Chapman to hurry his kick, and it consequently was no Tackling good. Burnsville then went on to win the game in overtime. Close games such as these frustrated the football team all year long. On the bright side the Hornets displayed the best defense in the conference. The defensive team held its opponents to an average of less than seven points per game. The leadership of captains Paul Orlady, Mike Burnett, and Tadd Chapman combined with the excellent coaching ability of Ron Koste-liz, Bob Savre, Mike Savre, Rocky Elton, and Dick Sandeen helped the squad improve throughout the season. Burnett and Chapman were named to the All Conference team, and Jim Savre, Mark Scholz, and Lance Jensen earned honorable mentions. The high regard which coaches and players held toward one another was shown in an emotional speech by Coach Kosteliz at the banquet. This prompted senior Pete Wemier to comment, “Everyone thinks Mr. Kosteliz is such a tough guy, but he’s really just a teddy bear.” Varsity Football: Front Row- M. Burnett, P. Orlady, T. Chapman. K.

Good attitudes and team spirit was the reason this year’s squad accomplished a record. The Varsity players were led by Senior co-captains Becky Horovitz and Mary Koskam, who provided the desired leadership for the younger girls in the teams' second season. A young team comprised mostly of tenth and eleventh graders, was aided by talented Freshman, such as, forward Julie Ronnei and goalie Lea Blackwell, who was considered the best goalie in the conference, provided excellent netminding for the team. Throughout the season, the girls continued a pregame motivational period. They claimed positive thinking and the song “Another One Bites the Dust” got the momentum rolling on the Hornet side. Team spirit definately was present in the decisive victories over St. Louis Park in a 2-1 overtime climax, and Orono in a 12-0 outburst. Betsy Reddy claimed four goals and Julie Smith scored a hat trick in that game. Varsity coach, Chris Brown, consistently developed the finer points of ball handling and control. Tony Szendrey assisted the Varsity squad while also coaching the J.V. team. Brown had confidence in her team, summing up the season like this: “We had an excellent team this year but our size put us at a disadvantage to other teams.” Upper Left: A correct trap is demonstrated by Katie Knips in the final minutes of a name against Wayzata.

GIRLS'SOCCER 99Kicks That Count The season began with the infamous captains' practice in the blazing heat of August. This consisted of rigorous conditioning including “running the trail,” numerous sprints, and unusually stimulating scrimmages. When the regular season arrived, the players were ready. The long-standing tradition of starting the season on a losing note was finally broken this year. In the opening game of the season the Hornets defeated defending state champion Robinsdale 1-0. The team had some problems scoring, but rookie Pat Carroll's nose for the goal pulled the Hornets through in the clutch on occasion. Unable to put together any kind of winning streak, the squad was forced to settle with a respectable 7-5-4 record. Varsity players were led by co-cap-tains John Kelly and Greg Petersen. Kelly used his exceptional speed to create numerous scoring opportunities, while Petersen’s midfield control earned him All Conference honors. The team was composed largely of returning varsity players. Experience was evident in the play of halfback Dave Hedrick, forward Marty Montilino and defenders Greg Sollie and Steve Linde-mann. Solid supervision under head coachLazlo“PushPass”Szendrey developed the individuals into a working unit. His emphasis on the basics helped the kickers to become fundamentally strong. Overall, the players had a good season and a rowdy time. Top: Tom Schunn takes control of the action. Middle Lett: Vanity Bottom Row- S. l.indemnnn, II. Kane. I). Hedrick, T. Porter, S. Teynor, D.

The Varsity team was centered around a nucleus of returning varsity players. There were five seniors on the varsity team; Julie Abbin-ante, Pam Dvorak, Paula Dvorak, Val Spann, and captain. Franny Barry. The juniors included: Susan McBurney, Karen Orndorff, and Claire Robert. Virginia Anderson was the only sophomore on varsity. Coach. Denise Erstad was confident that setter, Val Spann would perform well, and other members of the team including captain, Franny Barry, would do an excellent job of contributing to the team’s success. The coaching staff worked hard on improving the players’ vertical jumps by using the leaper,” an apparatus used by many athletes for strengthening their legs. The 1980 season team did not have a lot of height, but they developed many good jumpers. The Hornets were the conference champions of the 1980 volleyball season. They compiled a seasonal record of 14-2. Varsity player, Susan McBurney said outside of the team’s rigorous workouts, “we engaged in BAKING!” Coach, Denise made a few comments about the Junior Varsity and B-squads also. She said both squads did a fine job in the 1980 season. She commended J.V. captain, Cathy Crew for good leadership, and juniors, Stephanie Wood-head, Molly Rice, and Margaret Hawkins for their good playing and hard work.

The girls’ attitude accounted for the team’s success according to Coach Ted Greer. Their spirit was evident to both their spectators and their competitors. Co-captains Sarah Rowenand Anne Lemieux, who proudly led the team, helped develop the individual team member’s skills by giving to them their attention and advice. Before the team could enter into the tournament competition, they first had to beat Wayzata. And, once again they were successful. After this win the team was fairly confident of a triumphant record in the state tournament. In keeping with the school’s recent tradition, the team captured the state title in the girls’ tennis championship for the third consecutive year. Among the many exceptional players was Anne Lemieux. For the second time she gained the sought after title of the number one singles player in the state. Another singles player who showed her ability was All Conference player Maura Bjerken. Representing the Edina East’s doubles teams, Danna Lish-man and Sarah Rowen took second in state. In general, the girls continued the winning reputation of Edina East that was known throughout the state. Of great significance to the team was Coach Ted Greer. He complemented the girls with his support, instructions, and his equal involvement in the sport. He felt that the team’s most attractive quality was their spirit, but he said, “It’s the girls’ natural ability and hard work that brought them their victory in the state championship.” The season was short, but the memories will last forever. Michelle Jones recalled some of these good times when she said, “I’ll never forget the marshmallow fights and the soft peaches thrown at me. I still owe the whole team a peach in revenge.” The junior varsity girls’ tennis team proved that they were qualified to be the successors of the 1980 team by winning the Blake Invitational. They also displayed strength and desire to win in the SPA meet. They emerged the winners by a 4-3 score. Coach Uhr inspired the girls with his new ideas on how to improve upon their skills and then backed them up 100%. during the beginning of practice the girls would warm-up with their favorite exercise: the squat jump. Throughout the season and practices the team showed their dedication to tennis and were pleased with their winning record of 9-3. Upper Right: Senior. Anne Lemieux concentrates on the ball.

GIRLS’TENNIS 105Keeping Pace The boys’ cross country team started off the season slowly with losses in their first few meets ending with a 1-5 conference record. This was due partially to low participation in the sport- only eight individuals joined the team. Although the team was small, John Barton, Randy Keeler, and Jay Dege helped strengthen it. Coach Ed Hendrickson did not appoint a team captain as he felt each member of the team should be self-motivated. The pride of the Edina-East team was Randy Keeler. He maintained an undefeated record in conference meets. Practice and sportmanship were keys to the girls’ team success. Hard work both before and during the season prepared them for their meets where endurence presided. Although inexperience stood out as a weakness, the team was soon strengthened with willpower, good attitude and support from other team members including Coach A1 Carlson. Heseemed almosta partof the team because he worked out along with the girls in practice and got involved in meets. Under the leadership of captains Becky Beal and Sue Bigelow, the team finished third in the Lake South conference with a 6-2 record. “I’m so embarrassed ... Running on grass ... Punk ...

CROSS-COUNTRY 107 Breaking The Waves The 1980 swim team made the regional meet the highlight of the season. In fact, 98% of the girls had their best time in the regional meet. One unique aspect of the swim team was that they did not divide the members into Junior Varsity and Varsity. They considered themselves one team. The Tri-Captains, Renee Ranting, Katy Burke,and Sue Braurer demonstrated outstanding leadership and sportsmanship. Other outstanding swimmers were: Trish Franciosi and Sandy Beckley for the 100 Breast, Lynne Erickson for the 100 Back, and Mary Monson for the 100 Fly. Half of the Edina-East diving team qualified for state in the person of Katy Burke. Katy Burke and her diving partner. Dawn Surber were coached by Josie Carlson, a former Edina-East student. Both divers competed in the regional meet. Surber placed sixth and Burke placed second. The 1980 swim coaches were: Ann Anklam, Jenni Morin and Josie Carlson. Head coach, Ann Anklam commented that the swim team members were very young, but they always gave their best effort. Diver, Dawn Surber said, “Even though we did not win any of our meets, our spirit made up for the losses.” Girls’ Swimming EDINA- EAST 38- 45 Kennedy 31- 50 Richfield 28- 55 Jefferson 30- 53 Burnsville 28- 56 Blake 59- 24 Benilde 69-103 Lincoln 69-103 Minnetonka 75- 92 St. Louis Park llttiiom Left: Surah Anderson list's nil her -tren th In exhibit I hr “Hiilivrth .Above: Alter n lohfi tiny (ievttlril to swim mini; Sue llrnuer lakes lime in rein GIRLS’ SWIMMING 109The Edina Tradition In its 32 years of existence Edina High School has built a tradition of athletic excellence. This tradition arose from a combination of great coaching, individual excellence, team spirit, and the support of the student body and the community as a whole. A strong foundation of Edina’s athletic tradition has been its community sports programs. Invariably, young Edinans have participated in a variety of sports beginning when they were small children. Throughout their athletic careers these future stars have received coaching from many dedicated and experienced parents. Upon entering high school the outstanding coaching staff at Edina-East has helped these individuals to reach their full potential. The names and faces of the Hornet coaches are widely recognized. Among the best are football coach Stav Canakes, hockey coach Willard I kola, track coach Ed Hendrickson, and basketball coach Duane Baglien. The records of each speak for themselves. In addition to great teams, these coaches have had great individuals. Former Minnesota Viking Jeff Wright graduated from Edina. Other standouts have included hockey players Bill Nyrop and Craig Norwich, track star Paul Otto, and basketball standout Bob Zender. The leadership from players of this cali- ber has made the difference between good and great teams. One often overlooked aspect of the Edina tradition is the support of the fans. The great teams could not have done the job without it. Who can forget the cheering sections of Ernie Kovack and Rick Roberts and Roddy Mears? Edina fans have always been louder and more imaginative than those of the opposition. This spurred teams on to a level of competition otherwise unattainable. Just when it seemed that they were down and out the Hornets have come back time and again to emerge victorious. Evidence of this was the 1975 hockey team’s comeback against St. Paul Sibley in the state tournament. The Hornets scored six goals in the last five minutes to win 6-3. With the closing of Edina-East a great athletic tradition does not come to an end, but will continue with the unity in which it began. Throughout its history this school has maintained a level of performance worthy of pride. Top: Craig Norwich demonstrates one of his patented moves.

A young squad this year, composed of only juniors and sophomores, the Hornets improved greatly through the fifteen week season accomplishing a 110 point total, a twenty point increase over last year. Strenuous practices with both Edina-East and West squads combined under the same coaching staff were set up to develop the finer points of the six events. Head coach Robert Hoecherl set short term goals from meet to meet to work on problems that needed improvement. Junior captain Nick Gammello acknowledged that the young team lacked experience but commented, ‘‘Each gymnast has talent in a certain aspect, and a combination of both East and West squads next year will make Edina a dominant team.” Another junior Mark Dorn, who will be captain next year, did well on the horse. Rocco Gammello, the only overall competition participant, took second on the parallel bars. Edina finished fourth at the Edina Invitational, an improvement from previous years. This year’s 2-9 record was not an accurate indication of the team’s talent as several meets were lost by only a few points. The enjoyment of participating and the excitement of competition enabled this year’s squad to capture the eye of the public. Varsity Boys' Gymnastics: Front Row- J. Stotts. R. Gammello. H.

BOYS’GYMNASTICS 113Hip Hoop Hurray The 1980-81 Hornet basketball team endured their final season despite successive injuries and illnesses. An exciting season was highlighted by close games against highly rated Richfield and Jefferson. Returning varsity players, co-captains Stu Grubb and Mike Burnett, dominated Hornet ball control. Stu admitted that rowdy crowds and the Hornettes cheering at the door motivated the squad through a majority of the season. Junior netman Steve Blietz and Ron Wolf held tough in varsity play. Head coach Bob Savre comment- ed “We had a good start this season but injuries caused us to utilize a continuous rotation of the starting lineup.” Sprains, colds, and the flu were among the misfortunes that plagued East hoop men. Team participation and togetherness was important in a sport like basketball, and Edina combined this with unique individual talents to establish a strong position in the hardest conference in the state. This season was a time for practice and fun during the final year of varsity basketball on the East side of Edina. Top: Everyone awaits the rebound after a shot.

The 1980-81 girls’ basketball team was characterized by an interesting paradox, youth and experience. This was especially evident in the case of sophomores Virginia Anderson and Susan Harris. Both had played varsity ball since seventh grade and this year showed the poise of seasoned veterans. Also providing experience were co-captains Becky Beal and Maura Bjerken. The season was marked by steady improvement and balanced scoring. All the varsity players are capable of putting points on the board, and it seemed that each game had a different leading scorer. Early in the season in a game against Minnetonka this scoring was stopped as the Skippers held the Hornets scoreless in the first four minutes of the of the game. A sudden surge and consistent play throughout the rest of the game allowed the team to bounce back and crush Tonka 62-35. Not only was the girls’ basketball team successful, it also had fun. The players knew how to have a good time and still get the job done. They were often heard practicing to tunes such as “Whip It” by Devo. Coach Doug Galligher was pleased with his team’s progress. He said, “The girls worked well together as a team. The years that they have played together showed in their performance in the games.” Girls' Varsity Basketball: Front Row: B. Beal, L. Blackwell, R.

The Hornets played in a school record eight overtimes. Out of these eight the Hornets came up on the short end four times. Throughout the year the team seemed to have trouble in the third period and consequently let a few close games slip away. Fortunately this was not always the case. Against Richfield the Hornets were down 5-3 with just over a minute remaining in the game. A quick goal by captain Steve McLar-ron brought the squad to life. With forty seconds left Coach Ikola pulled goalie Kevin Galbraith, and before time ran out Don Sockwell was able to stuff the puck in the net to tie it up. Stunned, the Spartans were unable to recover, and Jon Goetz went on to score the winning goal just sixteen seconds into overtime. Offensively, Sockwell and Fat Carroll carried the responsibility. Together they scored more than the rest of the team combined. This unbalanced scoring caused problems for the Hornets, but the young players worked hard to compensate for it. At the season’s end Coach Ikola looked forward to next year. He remarked, “With the combination of the two schools we have got to be considered one of the favorites. We will have many returning players with varsity experience.” Varsity Hockey 4-3 (OT) Southwest 4-2 St. Louis Park 4-5 (OT) Edina-West 2-3 Richfield forfeit by Jefferson 6-3 Hihbing 6-7 (OT) Roseau 4-7 Grand Rapids 6-3 Kennedy EDISA-EAST4-2 Minnetonka 4- 3 (OT) Lincoln 5- 3 Burnsville 6- 0 St. Louis Park 2- 8 Edina-West 6- 5 (OT) Richfield 4- 5 (OT) Jefferson 7- 1 Kennedy 3- 2 (OT) Minnetonka 5- 3 Lincoln 8- 3 Burnsville J.V.

Lack of snow accumulation this winter drastically changed the Boys’ Cross Country Ski Team's season. Insufficient snowfall caused the skiers to have a long period for training, but a short season for skiing. Head Coach Tom Beaver commented, “This year was not as discouraging as last year, because the temperature allowed the small amount of snow on lakes to supply an ample base in some areas for short track experiences.” He also added. “The veterans were able to compete in later months, so they were not totally disappointed.” Two of these veterans, senior cocaptains «John Barton and Jay Dege, applied their talents to lead- ing the squad in preseason training. Some of these activities included roller skiing, running, soccer, and weight lifting. Despite Mother Nature’s lack of snowfall, Hyland Hills Ski Resort managed to make an artificial course where conference meets were held. The ski trail, well lit for night skiing, was hillier than normal trails. Located at the top of the down hill ski slopes, the course was well traveled with meets night and day. The abundance of training and the Hyland Hills trail gave Edina-East skiers a chance to work around the snow deficiency, and still make the best of an exciting sport.

CROSS COUNTRY SKIING 121The slalom ski team found the 1980-81 season a challenge from the start. To begin, they noticed an integral part of skiing missing- the snow. The difficulty of making runs on man-made snow added an extra skill for both the boys’ and girls’ teams to perfect. The girls’ coach, Chris Brown and the boys’ coach, Gary Hagen, both pro-amateur skiers, offered their experience and support to help each individual reach his peak of ability. Leading the boys’ team into the season was captain Jeff Olson. He, along with Jeff Bennett and John Mahoney, ran the course with the best times. John Mahoney showed his strength in the meet against Lincoln and Robbinsdale. He placed first against both teams. To the team’s advantage, was the large number of seniors participating. This was partially due to the tryouts that were enthusiastically at-tended. Eighteen out of thirty were chosen to make up the team. The members worked together to create a promising group of competitors. Consistency was the goal that the girls’ team strived for. They knew that if they could achieve this goal they had a good chance of winning each meet. They proved themselves correct in the meet against Cooper and Lindberg. The scores were 36-19 and 45-10 in favor of Edina-East. Depth stood out as the team’s best quality. Many talented skiers surfaced over the span of the season. But, captain Cathy Coletti and Mary Mullin were the two members who regularly topped off the teams times. Cathy Coletti went on to take seventh place as an individual in the region. She then participated in the state competition. The time devoted to skiing was time well spent. Both teams showed good sportsmanship and improvement throughout the ski season.

Although the first few meets did not result in their favor, the team was determined to improve, and their perseverance paid off when they upset highly rated St. Louis Park. The team was led by three captains Bob Keller, Neil Logan, and Pete Szendrey. Some of the swimmers who made outstanding efforts in team competition were seniors Willie Anderson and the tri-captains, juniors Bob Griswold, Jon VantLand, and Tom Smith. The divers worked on their own a lot and had a very strong season. They began by placing sixth in the Burnsville Invitational meet. There were four varsity divers seniors Scott Backus and Dick Schulz, junior Pete Keith, and sophomore Jeff Walters. The team coaches were Art Downey- varsity, Laszlo Szendrey-j.v., and Rick Jacobson- diving. Coach Downey said that the team made a lot of progress throughout the season and they looked better every week. Coach also felt that a lot of team spirit came along with their hard work. In fact, the team enjoyed singing in the shower after practice like on the White Shadow. Junior Bob Griswold summed ip up by saying that there was no other team that he would have rather swam with than “Our Gang.” Above: Swimming: Front row- A Dow ney, X. Logan, • Ashley. . .

BOYS SWIMMING 125Strong Hold The 1980-81 wrestling season was different for the Edina-East Hornets because they merged with the Edina-West Cougars to form an Edina wrestling team. Because of the small number of participants, the team did not have the strength that they had anticipated at the beginning of the season. The first part of the Hornet-Cougar season was grueling due to unexpected injuries. But as the injured healed, the team became stronger than ever. The stars of the East portion of the compound team were Varsity wrestlers; Mace Pfutzenreuter, co- captains Dave Huff, and sophomore, Jamie Gleason. Dave Halla, an East member of the junior varsity squad will provide additional skills to made the team even more sound next year. Two of the key wrestlers, Dave Huff and Jamie Gleason, were forced out of action for a while because of shoulder separations. Despite the injuries the team suffered, coach Dick Gaughran stated, ‘‘Even though the 80-81 season was a testing year, we gave it our best shot and worked to accomplish our personal individual goals.” Above: East Boys' Wrestlinfc D.

The team lost four senior varsity members from last year’s state championship team. That meant they had to use all their effort and abilities in order to maintain their high standards. The team felt that one of the most challenging meets was the Fairbault meet; Twenty-five teams participated. The size of the meet put extra pressure on the girls. They knew that they had to make a good impression on all the state wide teams. They succeeded at this when they took second place to the Burnsville team by one fourth of a point. This year the team experienced the mid-season slump. It threw the girls off balance and as a result, their record began to show defeats. The coaches responded to this problem by working them harder and increasing team spirit. Soon after, the girls showed improvement and more confidence. Spastics Tri-captains Cindy Stevens, Sue Niday and Joy Meeker highlighted the team with their spirit and talent. The make-up of the varsity team also included Michelle Murray, Joyce Bishop and Jean Barnard, returning varsity members, Wendi Jennings and three junior high members. Throughout the year, the team showed improvement with each consecutive competition. But, because they were in the toughest region, qualifying for state was difficult. Even though the state competition seemed out of reach, the team was reassured by the knowledge that they were still highly ranked. “Pot Belly Bears ... Stuie ... Book ... Doughnuts and eggnog ...

GIRLS’ GYMNASTICS 129One Last Look ... at the people in our respective classes. While the surface character of Edina-East continually changed, each class retained its own characteristics lending continuity to our high school year. We struggled through six years of secondary education with essentially the same people. To a great extent, our immediate peers dictated the daily course of our lives. They were the reason for good times as well as bad. In our class, we found unity and spirit, but we often experienced loneliness and dejection. Our classmates served as a standard with which we measured our accomplishments and capabilities. They were the ones with whom we floundered in Biology, American History, or Econ., and they were the ones with whom we shared the thrill of passing the driver’s license test. Because we endured the same trials and tribulations and enjoyed similar successes, we were always in tune with each other. When we take One Last Look at the 1980-81 school year our classmates will deservedly receive the most attention. Top: Edina-East commandos discuss "battle strategies" at snack break.

But the one that was most frustrating, and em-barassing, was that of getting mixed up on the five pairs of twins at Edina-East. It was not uncommon, when in a hurry, to make a slight slip of the tongue. “Hi Clint!” “I’m Cal! "OOPS!” But, you didn’t have to be too worried for Paula Dvorak once said, “My mom even calls me Pam every now and then.” Most of the Edina-East’s twins said that they just played along with any mistakes. But if they knew someone well, who goofed up, they certainly did not tolerate it! This viewpoint also arose from the fraternal twins. There was no reason to get them mixed up, for they didn’t even resemble each other. When six years of schooling together were over, many students still could not distinguish one clone from the other.

I’m just glad it didn’t happen while I was around.” This quote reflected the sentiments of many seniors regarding the the 1981 merger. While some students were glad to escape it, others felt they would be missing something. Along with the merger would come new classes from which to choose. For some the main attraction would have been the chance to meet new and different people. Others regretted missing the anticipated multitude of state tournament teams. Although many seniors shared these viewpoints others held divergent views. The thought of a merger which would fill the new Edina High School building to two hundred past estimated capacity, cramped some students’ styles. Despite these various concerns the merger mood of most seniors was hopeful. As one senior said, “It may be a bit more crowded, but it really would have improved my chances of getting a date with someone from my own schooL” Michael Dennis Bennett- varsity tennis, varsity cross country, Spanish Club, O.H.S.

Congraduations Eighteen years of life, thirteen years of school, four years of high school, and six months of preparation were culminated in a single hour when seniors donned caps and gowns and proudly received their diplomas. Preparation began early in January as parents began planning the senior party, and well guarded secrets began to evolve. In February, seniors lined up outside the cafeteria to be measured for their caps and gowns. Senior class officers decided on a layout for the formal announcements, and seniors placed orders for the amount they wished to send to family and friends. Soon it was May, and rehearsals for the graduation ceremony were scheduled. Mr. Fredrickson, the co-ordinator of graduation, arranged the seniors according to height. It took several hours of exhaustive rehearsal before the seniors learned how to line up and march correctly. The final weeks before graduation-were exciting and hectic, but the seniors would have to agree that all the time and effort spent preparing for graduation was well worth it.

SENIORS 137Future Superstars In its last six years together, the class of ’81 produced sensational individuals-one could say, some future superstars. Seniors branched off into many different areas, ranging from stand up comedians, tennis champs, actors, actresses, and football heroes, to a famous rock band. These individuals progressed rapidly toward definite goals-for a few, the Olympics, and for others, the highest of all the national offices. Edina-East created the necessary atmosphere for all to fulfill their potential. During high school everyone may have seemed like everyday ordinary people. But what did the future hold? Whigrean decided to find the answer to this question. We searched and searched and finally found a very profound gypsy. This was what she predicted. “1 see a large field with several football players, one of whom is Tadd Chapman.

Ginny Staler is featured on the cover of "Vogue” and Glamour," the prestigous fashion magazines for models, with her name changed to "Sherri Casanova." She is also enjoying a rich man’s paradise through selling Virginia Staler designer jeans at $95.00 a pair. I can also see a woman upon a podium with thousands of people cheering and holding up signs. “Eve Bigelow for President.” The cheering then switches from a Presidential campaign to a rock concert. Becky Beal is the star at the St. Paul Civic Center, hair cropped, dancing and singing. She is on a world wide tour with her group, "The Chains." My mind is now wandering from the flashing lights of the concert to the brightness of Las Vegas, in which the name “Steve Teynor” is up in lights. People are paying almost anything to get inside for a few laughs." What is in the future for the class of '81 students? No one knows. But don’t be shocked, if very soon, you see a familiar face on the T.V. or in the papers. You’ll then be able to say, "I once knew him her! I remember in 10th grade, when we thought we were so cool, we went and ..." 1 I.inn Ilorccki shows Paul LaSalle how to tickle himself effective■ Iv. 2 During Psychology.

Unquotes “I beg you, no, I beseech you!” This quote was a common favorite among the seniors who responded to a Whigrean questionaire. Many quotations were inside jokes. One such example was, “jello in a bundt-pan”, by Mary Scoggin. Mr. Herzig’s view of life as “nasty, brutish, and short,” was recorded quite frequently. There were many unique and imaginative quotations. What follows is a sampling of the more inter-esti quotations. “The world is going to communism.” “I’m goin’ where the weather suits my clothes.” “Ducks go quack.” “If you got all the beauty sleep you needed, you’d be dead.” “If you can draw a box, you can draw anything.’ “ ... and pigs will fly,” Mr. Swanson’s famous saying.

Let’s Go A Bite Whether fancy or fast-food, dining out played a major role in daily high school activities. Many students could be found rising at the crack of dawn, anxiously ly awaiting that bottomless cup of coffee and a steaming stack of Perkins pancakes. Although Perkins was by far the most popular place, other breakfast nooks frequently flocked to included J.P.’s and the Original Pancake House. Around noon, many exclaims could be heard throughout the school, “I’ve got the car, let’s go the Mac and Dons!” After clawing one’s way through the barbaric lunch crowd, and receiving a soggy burger and cold fries, the student realizes, with panic, that it’s time to hit the road. Once back and safely in class indigestion set in. The Main Grain, the r‘Q", and home sweet home also provided school day getaways. On a list of favorite activities, dining out moved up a number of notches. Everyone looked forward to going out for dinner because it not only provided good food, but relaxation, a change of pace, and also a chance to catch up on the latest gossip. Some of the most common spots Mark Edward Gempler- Gemps- soccer-catamaran sailing, skiing, skating- The Cheetah Club. Sugar Lake.

Bricn Patrick Gotten- Dupa. Bri- varsity football, track- waterskiing. Lash- memorable trips to Kimball. Hawaii. Out For included The Good Earth, The Brothers and The Pantry. For special occasions (r.e. birthdays, dates and payday) students splurged and resorted to elegant dining establishments such as Chi-Chi’s, Le Bistro, and the infamous D.B. Kaplans. Whether preplanned or spontaneous, morning, noon or nighttime, any time was the right time to dine out.

SENIORS 143Hairy Hard Guys Who was that masked man? Familiar, but somewhat different senior men entered the doors of Edina-East on September 2, 1980. Distinguishing characteristics of beards, moustaches, or a combination of both were sighted. They ranged from thick and wooly to thin and shaggy. When asked what inspired him to forsake his “clean shaven" look, Neal Logan replied, “Because I didn’t want to shave.” Although a few seniors kept their whiskers, most of them shaved clean before the year ended. Steve Kuenzli, Craig Flom, and Peter Szendry, to name just a few had shaved, possibly to avoid the hassles involved when eating. Moustaches were still numerous, left on for a slight touch of upperclassmen prestige. A small amount of money may have been saved through the absence of shaving expenses, but the excess hair soon disappeared. Sometime in the near future another beard or moustache might be grown just for a change to something new and different. While taking on the challenges of the outside world, their wrinkles may become covered by that disguising mask once again. Margaret Elizabith Gieae- Megan, Me-gem. Megger.

Due to authoritative complications this always had to be done at night. Because of the darkness, avoiding wires and other obstacles was a challenging task. From the very First step, members of the expedition had to contend with slivers and intense acrophobia. After conquering the foreboding jump, the climber could enjoy a spectacular view. When asked why he tackled the Highland Hills jump, fearless Dave Etzwiler replied, “Because it was there.” what was actually done on top of the jump depended upon the climber; the activities ranged from sightseeing to having a wild time with friends.

SENIORS 149 Kidstuff Although the twelfth grade usually fostered sophisticated and mature behavior, seniors often reverted back to their childhoods. Usually the most juvenile ambitions were let out on weekends. Friday nights often began with a quick trip to Superette or Byerly’s to stock up on supplies of gum or candy. The rest of the evening might have been spent ice-blocking down Haystack at Cornelia, skating or sledding in the snow, or catching the latest flick(how about “The Muppet Movie” or “Flash Gordon?”) Some "senior women” even found they were not too old to stay up all night at slumber parties to munch out or to catch up on the latest gossip. Some "senior men” found that they could entertain themselves by dressing up like Commandos to rampage the streets of Edina, while others released their inner frustrations by competing junior guys in wrestling. Even though there were times when a senior was compelled to display the leadership and wisdom that was expected of him (cough, cough,) moments of puerile madness usually dominated.

At Edina-East High School each grade possessed different people with different morals. There were students who smoked, drank heavily, and often stumbled home at odd hours of the night. Others were much more restrained, emphasizing schoolwork and good clean fun. Somewhere between the two extremes lay the vast majority of the Edina-East student body. These students could be somewhat categorized. Many were independent and could settle the conflicts of growing up on their own. Others could not handle these decisions and relied upon peers, or cliques, for guidance. Some were highly influenced by their parents, and had morals adjacent to those of the 1950’s. Some turned directly to religion for a set of moral guidelines. Whether changed for the better, or for the worse, the specific morals of each student in 1981 were important estimations of that generation.

TERSE: TURGID: (A) cow: pig (B) tremendous: prodigious (C) state: nation (D) slim: obese (E) mountain: sea Many seniors wore out their hands, minds and number two pencils earlier this year while taking the dreaded S.A.T. test. This is one of the first steps on the road to college. Not only did achievement tests have to be taken, but applications had to be filled out and essays had to be written. For some of the more competitive schools two or more essays were required. Questions like, “List one achievement in your life and state how it could be applied to your college life,” were frequently asked. Other questions which had to be answered on the road to college included which field to pursue, and which school to attend. Seniors who wanted to go out East, set their goals high and applied at an Ivy League school. Other seniors, having spent too many winters in the land of ice and snow wanted to spend their winter hours studying under a palm tree in Arizona, Florida or California.

The most popular choices were Jay Swanson, Jesus Christ, and a three way tie for Peter Leuty, Bruce Springsteen, and Eraserhead. Others that stood high in the ranking were Clint Eastwood, Dave Baker, and Carl Sagan.

Champagne breakfast. Spirit At the beginning of the year, the student council decided to add “class competition” to Edina-East High School activities. Senior, Eve Bigelow stated, “The idea was to promote better class spirit.” At pepfests it added new zip to the established routine. The competition was based on silly contests such as the tricycle race at the Homecoming pepfest. Another highlight in the year was the toilet paper wrap-up at the fall sports pepfest. The winning class of each contest was awarded five points. Second place received three points and last place got one point. At the end of the year, the class with the most points won a special prize. However, not all the events sported participants. At the “Deck the Halls” contest the junior class didn’t show up. Although not everyone participated, the overall result of the class competition was an increase in school spirit. Above: Robin Jones, in the wheelbarrel compcition. realizes that just a few more feet could win extra points for the junior class.

Well, we never thought the day would come. There have been times when we’ve all had problems. But most of all we’ve had a lot of fun. All my friends, we’ve had some good times together. The memories we’ve shared we’ll look back on with pleasure. Everybody’s talking ’bout our graduation, It’s the last one from East there’ll be. Ever since they chose to close the school. They’ve been talking ‘bout the “Sting That Lasts.’’ Though they knew that when the seniors go, Edina-East would be lacking some class. Don’t fool yourself with declining enrollment. The reason why they’re closing is because of our commencement. We’re leaving, they’re grieving, And the school is closing, even, But it’s still Edina-East to me.

As simple as it seemed on the outside, All Star Wrestling was a big business. The Minneapolis auditorium reached near capacity level for this dangerous and exciting sport. Some Edina students made their way out to that event more than once, and some Edina students have become avid fans of this show. At the Holiday Pepfest this year, four of these students decided to show off their knowledge of the sport. Equipped with referee Mike Burnett and announcer Bob Bateman, the match could have been labeled professional. All Star Wrestling was not confined to the gymnasium, however, because matches were said to have broken out in the lunchroom, classrooms, and hallways. Edina students may not have heard the half of the show, since words used in the working vocabulary of all these men were words almost as bizarre as the sport itself. Some terms used were “toe hold”, “eye gouge,” “body slam,” “Greco-Roman knuckle lock,” and “the sleeper.” Although the reigning champion seniors Jungle Jim Frie-dricks and Tony Copenhagen Ca-terina left this year, the inauguration of All Star Wrestling in Edina East guaranteed immortal memories.

I SENIORS 165 Lefties For the left-handed minority, every day hassles were magnified. Adjusting to right-handed equipment in school constantly challenged and frequently frustrated some students. This minority did not stage “leftist” uprisings and did not boycott standardized products. Instead, Edina-East’s southpaws quietly endured a somewhat cruel and unusual punishment. Writing in a spiral notebook was, perhaps, the most painstaking of all the academic chores. Each time the left hand returned to the left margin it was left with an unfavorable impression by the spiral wire. As the hand pushed the pen across the page it absorbed ink splotches and other debris. The result was often a swollen red, stained blue facsimile of the American flag. Classroom desks also presented an awkward situation to the lefty. Writing an essay without an elbow rest exhausted the left arm as well as the right side of the brain. However uncomfortable, the persecuted lefties did little to right the wrongs inflicted upon them by society.

Although grateful for the short 28 minute lunch break, our minds were drilled once again by the bits of trivia found on the sides of skim, 2%, whole, and even chocolate milk cartons. They supplied us with prefix and suffix pronunciation and multiplication table that progressed as far as the product of ten times ten. Maps of the U.S. with a particular state darkened in, accompanied by its state capitol, state bird, state flower, union entry date, its largest city, and its personal motto, such as “North to the Future” for Alaska, were readily at hand. Through eating lunch everyday, our patriotic spirit increased, as did our knowledge of math and English. Possibly, many students were able to graduate from high school solely on a school lunch education. When asked about her feelings concerning milk carton trivia, Sue Abrell replied. “They’re more informative than cereal boxes.” Peggy Cardie added, “They fortify your mind and body at the same time.” Barb Cote Chris Cox Scott Crosby Peter Crowell Cheryl Curtis Brian Cutshall Diane Davies Andre Debrey Sandy Deering Sheila Denn Heather Dick Awilda Dilan John Doepke Tom Donnelly Mark Dorn Jodie Dulac Carol Edmondson Dave Ellingson Gary Eneberg John Estensen Bridget Fallon Rob Favaro Lisa Feddema Pat Flynn Maureen Forpahl Karen Freiberg Kevin Galbraith Nick Gammello Brian Gaskill Sue Gastler 168 JUNIORSCheryl Gavin Sam Giannakakis Tony Giannakakis Sue Gillespie Michaelan Gillies .Jackie Gough Rick Graham Jane Granlund Dave Greuze Paul Graves Dean Gray Terrie Greenbush Bob Griswold Kim Groe Stephanie Gutknecht Kristi Hagford Dave Halla Tom Halloran Leanne Hammersten Cole Hannon Ken Hanson Mike Hardacker Mary Harpestad Margaret Hawkins Molly Hayes Sheryl Helgemoe Janet Hellesvig Nancy Henaman Upper left: Sherri Manik substitutes a milk carton for a calculator to compute a math problem.

Social groups at Edina-East asserted their presence in number or by territorial claims. Huddled masses often rendered halls impassable between classes and benches were seized during lunch and snack break. The “senior benches” outside the lunch room were traditional meeting grounds but more clandestine cliques found less conspicuous gathering areas. The secluded "bandie hall” welcomed rap sessions and the benches near the library were a sanctuary for junior .girls escaping the heavy traffic during passing time. Over the years the tennis courts had earned the reputation of a smoking ground and this year provided no exception. Good, bad, or indifferent, cliques added character to the school year. One of many junior cliques avoids the chaotic snack break croud by meeting outside the library.

Upper Right: Ann Wemoicr, taking advantage of the salad bar, battles the bulge. 172 JUNIORSI Battle The Bulge As the new decade rolled in, so did a surge of new fad diets. But this year was different. With models such as Bo Derek parading around the screen in front of us. the need for a "perfect” body intensified. Fads came in and they died out just as quickly. The Scarsdale Diet and the Pritikin Diet dominated the dieting scene. As these fads slowly faded out, the trend was to rely on the old “not eating junk” diet. Here is a classic example of a teenage girl dieting: Ann is trying on her new outfit, when she looks in the mirror. "Oh my gosh. I’ll start my diet fresh tomorrow Monday morning.” So Monday morning comes and goes and she sticks determinedly to the diet. Kven as Tuesday passes, her dedication wears on. But Wednesday, since the gang was hitting McDonald’s for lunch, she decides that she can allow one exception, and make up for it later, of course. When Friday night arrives, the pressure is too much, and once again, the famous line was repeated, "Okay. I'll start again Monday-I’m serious this time!” Greg Odland Steve Olson Karen Orndorff Kathy Otness Carolyn Paden Kelly Panchot Corinne Patrek Don Pavek Joe Perry Ed Peter' Craig Peterson Marian Peterson Ray Peterson Richard Peterson Lisa Pierce Diana Pollman Diana Psihos Karie Pudvan Gina Pumilia Randine Putz Hung Quong Kija Rankka Randy Redd in Carl Reiersgord Karin Reitan Nancy Rerich Chris Reynolds Molly Rice Jon Richard Steve Rickman Claire Robert JUNIORS 173Dave Roberts Steve Roberts Susan Roberts Larry Robertson Chris Rosemark Bill Ross Zaki Sahar Brad Salute Krisi Salyards Pete Sampson Brian Sayler Kelli Schnobrich Bill Schorr Ron Schroder Richard Schunn Geri Sciola Carla Sellers Cara Seppi Peter Sidley Pete Sieff Brian Simpson Dave Slaughter Julie Smith Tom Smith Wendy Snelgrove Jamie Spalding Dave Spencer Nancy Spoodis John Stearns Ted Steiner Claudia Strom Stu Stubbs Jeff Sturm Suzy Sullivan Dawn Surber 174 JUNIORSMorning Performers Homeroom came and went each day with minimal excitment. Homework was frantically completed and tests were crammed for when the previous night was waisted on less than constructive activities. The highlight of each morning came when the xylophone chimed and the familiar voices of the P.A. announcers greeted grouchy moods with. “Good Morning! Good Morning! Good Morning!” They informed us of current events, dances, concerts, sporting events, and trivia. But the most important daily responsibility of the P.A. announcers was to disclose the list of college meetings to anxious juniors and seniors. Each quarter, two students were honored with the job of reporting the morning announcements. Try-outs wereconductedbvMr.Fredrickson, who doubled as a guest star for special occasions. One of his more memorable speeches was patriotically received on Veteran’s Day. Prospective P.A. announcers auditioned by reading a mock announcement and were selected on the basis of their diction, personality, and ability to pronounce a variety of college names.

The sophomores faced the last year of their home school, but the year was also a series of firsts.” The first Homecoming, wondering if the girl you’d had your eye on since seventh grade would say "yes”. As Holly Everett exclaimed, "I was shocked, but excited that HE asked me!” The first chance of playing on a varsity sport, and also the first taste of "the big house.” The sophomores participated in the pepfests for the first time, showing a high level of spirit for their class, withstanding the traditional sophomore jokes. Some also received a part in their first senior high play. The joining of East and West next year will also he a new discovery for the sophomores as they become junior veterans in one school. “I SOPHOMORES 177Jeni Crosby Nancy Dahlsten Jamie Dale Lisa Dalton Scott Dawson Scott Day Christine DeMoss Jim Denn Scott Diamond Spencer Diggs Julie Dobies Sean Dodge Meg Downey Lynda Dunn Tim Eickhoff Kris Ellingson Peter Elvin David Estensen Holly Everett Bill Fabian Lisa Falstad Grant Fernelius Leslie Ferrell Debbie Fish Steve Friedrichs Scott Froemming Tony Fulco Rocco Gammello The Morning Blahs Mornings were always such a pain.

Of others, like me, who were late every day, By now I was sure what my teacher would say, “What is your reason, whv are you late?” The I'd take a deep breath, my excuse I would state, “My dog ate my homework- I mean- my bus- it broke down,” Then he’d peer over his glasses and give me a frown.

At the time, however, it wasn’t so terrific being the object of cruel pepfest jokes, such as, “Did you hear about the sophomore who locked his keys in the car? It took him a week to get all his friends out.” Falling in love with a highly sophisticated senior who thought of you as an “insect” was both a tragic and humiliating experience. The halls seemed like mazes with no way out. Some of us suspected that the arrows painted on the walls had been switched by a sneaky senior. We thought that every Junior and Senior was out to get us, and we planned to rebel by petitioning for sophomore privileges. Showing our character and maturity, however, we decided to just play our parts and wait for the day when we would graduate.

Suddenly, a vicious hound bound out at you, informing you that he wanted your leg for breakfast. When you finally escaped the monster, you proceeded to blow on your frostbitten hands and swear that you’ll never again sing, “Let It Snow”. To top it all off a big, orange thing, playing king of the road, whizzed by carrying students who peer down at you with mockery. If, in the past year, you found yourself in the preceding situation, you probably were one of many Edina-East students who had to face the agitating factors of walking to school. But, the future, you realized, held hope. When the merger between Edina-East and Edina-West became a reality, all students on the East side would be bussed; a personal victory for all those who hated frostbite and wet squishy shoes.

The shining chrome glared so strongly that it was blinding. The leader rode confidently ahead of the pack. His girl’s long hair was swept back by the wind; she clung on to her man for dear life. What was this scene depicting? None other, than the “moped gang,” the sophomore class’s answer to the Hell’s Angels. Was the moped gang as exciting and as dramatic as it sounded? As Rick Crandall stated, “It sure was fun for Mark Hoffman and Karen Ohm to ride their mopeds together off into those sunsets.” Soon the moped gang became so popular, that some students felt lost without one. The sophomores always invaded the parking lot of all the football games and other exciting events. One could always glance out of their window and glimpse a moped whizzing by, most of the time in a group of anywhere from three to ten. That was how the moped gang name evolved. Marc Usem expressed the coolness of riding mopeds by stating, “My goal in life is to be as cool as Mike Burnett. So I ride a moped.” With revved engines sophomore moped owners wait for the green light.

Thank you, John Sherman of the Edina Sun, for your sports pictures in times of need. Many thanks to Steve Ryan and Todd Buegler for coming to the aid of Whigrean in our picture crises. Thank you, Jane Waldron, for your straight lines and for helping Karen proof when R.J. caught the Bangkok flu. A special thank you is in order for staffers Lisa and Ann who rose above and beyond the call of duty. “Thank you, you Yugoslavian nomas!” Thank you, Kitty Cardie, for learning to print pictures and for pulling the classes section through the seniors deadline. Thank you. Mom Jones, for cleverly stocking your kitchen cupboard with “standard circle size A,” green lasses. Without them, intro would ave been square. Thank you, thank you, Whigrean parents for putting up with broken curfews, and for submitting your houses to the destructive force of the staff. Most of all, thank you, Whigrean staffers, for putting so much time and effort into your yearbook, and for drawing up spreads without pictures. Together we laughed, cried, ate, and played Pit while producing the best Whigrean we possibly could. You were a fantastic assemblage (superlative noun, Maggie) of people that made our year something very special. Love, Karen and R.J. Editors ...............Karen Jones R.J. Matson Academics ...
