Many different nationalities meet and mix every day on the streets of the city. But each night, they go home to their own people in their own special enclaves. Be- sides being just homes for its populace, these neighbor- hoods are the true heart of New York City, tourist attrac- tions- places not to miss when in New York. Chinatown, Little Italy, Harlem and the Lower East Side are world famous for their streets, their restaurants, their shops, and most of all, their inhabitants. Without them, the city would lose its luster and its reknown. Here once again, the city is set to music- the words are by Lorenz Hart and the music by Richard Rodgers. The song is "Manhattan" from their show "The Garrick Gaieties" of 1925. The lyrics are even more ap- propriate today, as we salute the small pockets that unite to form the overblanket of New York City. fi .J . if if P A ' H . lllgs F ......,.n if ' if 4- Q N vu -fini if lx ' L " f A 1- 2- Nh GELLIS ' .T 1.152365 1 sw FV- sf' 'W m X I ' f ,Li -,,.g.,.,,7 f x ' -Y ISAA L , M. ,,.,,,, zz smraw-x' ,f,. wa.,t.f.wf 5 la, L I v . .1 Q. .. ,,. mm Q' r,,.., mf .. , Above: "It's very fancy on old Delancey Street, you know.

It is a trendsetter and a home of landmarks, in point of fact, it is older than New York. In 1635, when New York was still a sleepy Dutch village called New Amsterdam at the tip of Manhatten Island, a group of Dutchmen settled near Flushing Bay and the town they established became our community. The Flushing community is l l l l l l full of history. john Bowne and the Quakers led the fight for religious freedom from here. General Grant, jenny Lind, and Theodore Roosevelt all ap- peared at Town Hall. Flushing High was granted its charter in 1875, before Flushing was a part of New York City. In 1938-39 and again in 1964-65, it served as host for the World's Fair. Modern Flushing is still a growing area. The Main Street business district is being revital- ized, and the historic Town Hall has been restored, once again serving the community as a showplace. Shea Stadium, ga as " home of the Mets and lets, and LaGuardia Airport, are both in the Flushing area. Without Flushing, New York would lack much, and without New York, Flushing might still be just a '--'...

After a record voter turnout in the primary, and a runoff between candidates Mario Cuomo and Edward Koch, it was a stunning victory for Koch in the general elec- tion.

A combination of Flash Gordon and The Wizard of Oz, the movie has a simple plot of good vs. evil. Much of STAR WARS' popularity has been attributed to the robot team of Artoo Detoo tR2-D23 and See- Threepio QC-3POl, dubbed the "Lau- rel and Hardy of the Cybernetic World."

After the New York Cosmos beat e Seattle Sounders in August 1977, nning the North America Soccer ague QNASLJ championship, New trk witnessed the retirement of ie of the greatest athletes in story - Pele. Three years ago, Edson Arantes do Nascimento tPelej became a New York Cosmo. He not only helped bring the Championship to New York, but in a short time made soc- cer a very popular sport in America. One of the most disappointing blows to New York sports was when the U.S. Olympic Committee chose Los Angeles over New York City as the site of the 1984 Summer Olym- pics. Los Angeles, in a better finan- cial position, could better sponsor the Olympics, according to the com- mittee. After a fifteen year "drought," the New York Yankees finally pulled it all together when they beat the Los An- geles Dodgers four games to two, winning the World Series in October 1977. The climax of the Series oc- curred during the final game when Reggie jackson, the center of most of the Yankees' internal conflicts, broke two and tied one of Babe Ruth's records. tRuth, unlike jack- son, never had three successive hits during a World Series game, nor hit five home runs in an entire Cham- pionship. Both Ruth and jackson hit three home runs in a World Series game.jjackson was voted the Most Valuable Player of the World Series. .enfvr -ff-11-f-7-.ut .-, .vu . un-ri L, hirs with his wife and five childrer Fai-minorlalo, l.,l.. has been employed ihf New York Shipping Associat v. horn he handlf-rl the health. welfare pension plans of Local H56 of the If rcent rebate liability and x rebate to 4 iling of S225 ice-take-hon t and buying straintj.

Among fashion fads were mono- grammed glasses, plaid shirts, stick- pins, disco bags and numerous styles of boots. On city streets, the rise of mopeds and customized vans was evident.

It has offices for the Forum, Arista, the Senior Council, and the SING Commission. The Life Center also houses the S.O. Store, the Tutorial Center and is a place for various clubs to meet. On December 21, 1977, one of the rooms was used for the S.O. Christmas Party. The Arista luncheon and the City University presentations were held there.

A squadron of Marines, a fife and drum corps, Santa Claus, and other local bands were also present. The parade, held on November 19, started on Main Street and Maple Avenue. It con- tinued through the Flushing business district and ended in front of Flushing High School. The parade is sponsored each year by the Flushing merchants. Flushing's cheerleaders led the parade and the Senior Band immedi- ately followed. Adriano Bortolin conducted the band.

The entertainment was prolvided by Soul Connection, six disc jock- eys who played disco music for dancing to "The Bump", "The Hustle", "The Bus Stop", and "The Walk". They also played Salsa CLat- inj Disco and rock. Between 350 and 400 people attended each Disco Night and the S.O. made S125 at the October 7 dance and S150 at the No- vember 5 dance. Both of the dances were sold out. Five door prizes of albums were given to the lucky ticket holders, at each Disco Night. The S.O. sold cold soda and served potato chips and popcorn.

A group of Drama students, led by Mrs. Lois Miller, attended a series of lectures on the Broadway theatre sponsored by the N.Y. League of Theatres and Producers and the Board of Higher Education. The lectures were given by professionals who spoke on their various areas of concentration. Among the lecturers were playwrights Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller, directors Vinette Carroll and Michael Bennett, designers William Rittman and Patricia Zipprodt, producers Morton Gottlieb and Waiss- man and Fox, and actors George C. Scott, Trish Van Devere, Hume Cronyn, and jessica Tandy. On December 9, FHS had a special lecturer, Congressman Benjamin Ro- senthal addressed an audience of American History students. He held an informal question and answer period and discussed such topics as foreign policy, abortion, illegal aliens, and local problems like Flushing Airport and Gateway National Park. Congressman Benjamin Rosenthal, Eli Abolafia and Dorothy La- Barbara discuss issues at outcome of lecture.

This year the Student Organization held many fund- raising activites. They sponsored two disco nights, a jacket day, a movie night, 'and many cake sales. SING tee shirts were sold before and during SING. The motivation be- hind all these activities was to raise money to be used by the teams to purchase new sports equipment and for some of the S.O. activities. jacket day gave many students the opportunity to buy a school jacket. They came in several styles, so students had a choice. At movie night, the popular movie, Tommy was shown. Both were great successes. The cake sales were the most popular fundraising activi- ties. All the cake and cookies were donated and a 100 percent profit was made. The cake sales were held sev- enth and eighth periods and by the beginning of eighth they were usually sold out. Each cake sale made between 520 and 530. Dr. Friedman instructs Emily Miao and Violet Chew to "Open wide." Doesn't that look yummy? i Umm, Umm, Good.

With the help of her dolls, puppets, and other toys, she tricked the mean Dick Dastardly and the toy store was saved.

The team improved tremendously since last season's winless campaign. The improvement could be traced to the performance of the team's best runners, seniors Robert Mont- gomery, Andrew Smith and Daryl Is- ley, and new training practices which helped build endurance. Running ten to fifteen miles a week in the cold might not sound like fun to you, but according to sen- ior David Prager, "lt keeps me in good shape and I'm proud to be on the team." Richard Zinman adds "You really have to push yourself." The other members of this year's team include senior Martin Schwim- mer, juniors Lorenzo Gonzalez, Kenny Gordon, and Ricky Hen- dricks, and sophomores Robert Ber- tone, john Bitsko, Bill Green, and Vinny Stroway.

"We lost twelve starting seniors to gradu- ation and our two starting tackles, Tony Goetz and George Penaher- rera were not even on junior Varsity ,last year." A junior Varsity program was initi- ated by the coach to correct that situation. The program consisted of five seasonal games to provide play- ers like Goetz and Penaherrera with valuable game experience. Although Mr. Schoenfield consid- ers all his juniors outstanding play- ers, the success of next year's squad should be determined by the perfor- mances of running back Dan De- Leon, defensive back Mike Callahan, quarterback Tony Perez, offensive tackle George Penaherrera, defen- sive tackle Tony Goetz, and wide re- ceivers Cornell Chestnut and Guy DeDonna. Only five starting seniors, corner- back james Scott, running back Rob- ert LeeTom, center Len Aguanno, and guards jeff Wright and jim Sa- lemo will be lost to graduation. Oth- er seniors whose absence will be felt are split end Howie Carr, defensive back Kevin Good, and linebacker Brian Heavey. 1 dmlgvlka 5 '-5 ' Ev iilitidm-...JL --fa.: if -s .4-. 'S-2415 t -..

Swimmers Go Co-Ed For the first time in FHS history, the swimming team was coed. "We didn't know how the season would turn out, but we were very optimis- tic," explained Coach james Shevlin. In light of this development, there was fierce competition for po- sitions on the team. Excelling in their performances were Robert Levine, lavier Montalvo, and Alex Perillo. "Our main problem was to devel- op coordination in the medley relay, where we have two girls and two boys dividing strokes in the course," commented Coach Shevlin. Practice was held at Bayside High School every Tuesday and Friday. Despite the distance involved in traveling between FHS and Bayside, members of the team declared their optimism openly. "Although we have to travel a good distance for our practice meets, I feel this helped us in overcoming many obstacles and mentally prepared us for the ac- tual meets," stated Robert Levine.

"Unfortu- nately, it takes about three years to build a good volleyball team." The team was led by seniors Den- ise Sumpter, Denise Hawkins, Vickie Coumnas, and Luz Rojas. Standout juniors were Chris Matthews, Zena Rebacoff, and captain Laura Sheer. The loss of junior jackie Sifflet due to a knee injury was a severe blow to the squad's aspirations to a playoff berth. . k I .

This was one of my best squads ever," commented Coach Tom Mul- len, on the success of this years' Soc- cer team. Experience proved to be an im- portant factor in the team's winning spree, with eight starters returning from the previous year. Greg Las- seles, center forward and a leading scorer in the division, paced the team by tallying 12 goals. Lasseles, an all-city candidate, controlled the tempo of the game while halfback Randy Scott helped carry the offen- sive load. Directing the defense were fullbacks Adriano Bortolin and Reggie King. Goalie Val Guerra was responsible for many key saves and numerous shutouts. Also contribut- ing toward victories were Edwin Gurelar, lorge Anchundim forwards, and fullback Efrain Palencia. The rise in soccer's nationwide popularity this year was evidenced by the great turnout in team tryouts. This was a plus for the Red Devils, because it added depth to the bench and secured all positions with strong personnel. iF' ' WX -uns-.a.....-nu--gn, r r -Q-.gf , -, -Y .6-M -,m.,1-r-- liliilliunuuvunnnqunnnupvinnqgmnsnunirrlinn ! 6 'n I Above: Coach Mullen poses with co-captains Adriano Bortolin, Greg Lascelles, and Reggie King.

The team was led by co-captains Paul Goldberg and David Graber, both seniors, and Alan Levenstein, also a senior. An addition to the team this year was senior Valerie Nathan, the only girl to make the squad. "It was strange being the only girl on the team," she admitted.

"We'd like to have run but our tallest girl was only 5'8," explained Coach Bier. A bright spot for the squad was the outstanding play of freshman Lisa Ross.

'Po U . 9 V wa fe Closes Out At 500 The 1977-78 Basketball season was closely contested, right down to the last game, as the Red Devils finished the year in third place with a 5-5 record. "We proved we were as good as any team in the league," praised Coach William Jensen as to his squad's performance. Flushing dis- played spurts of excellent team ball and ag- gressiveness and hustle on defense, but a lack of consistency hurt their playoff chances. Four losses by a margin of only five points or less, three of them in overtime, revealed just how tight the division race was. The Red Devils were in contention from the outset. They battled first place Forest Hills before succumbing in overtime. A highlight of the season occured when Flushing tallied 101 points for a new school record against Queens Vocational, The starting team was well balanced with all players equally contributing. At points, guard Guy McBride paced the club with 15 points per outing while Gary Williamson was a great asset with his tenacious defense. The tower- ing combination of center Ricky Hoch l6'5"J and forward Adriano Bortolin l6'4"J proved to be impenetrable as Hoch blocked shots and Bortolin grabbed rebounds. Neal Heller was accurate from the outside with his jumper and Cal Green repeatedly sparked the team with his inside moves.

"Many team members broke their in- dividual records every succeeding meet - that's pro- gressl" Standouts were field events captain Adriano Bortolin in the shotput, Randy Scott in the 100 and 220 yard dashes, lohn Bradbury in the long and triple jumps, Reggie King in the high and triple jumps, and Andrew Smith in the hurdles and the mile run. Coach McLaughlin expects at least four of these tracksters to go on to college track eams. All are seniors whose graduation will leave a gap in he team's ranks next year. Many team members took advantage of a weight train- ing program designed to improve their strength and en- urance. In addition, long Slow Distance runs were em- loyed to build stamina, sprints were run to increase peed, and a flexibility program was used to encourage Iimberness.

The Red Devil's opened the season by split- ng their first four games, then reeling off five onsecutive victories to wind up the season fith seven wins and two losses.

Ignatio Livent lead the ttack with a triple, and single, and three runs atted in. Robinsom saved the game by tranding a runner in scoring position in the last inning. After losing a tough game against Bowne, the Devils ran their record to 2-1 with an impressive victory over Francis Lewis, with Carlos Rosario recording his first complete game victory. The Red Devil's then reeled off consecutive victories against Forest Hills, Edison, Bayside, Bowne, and Francis Lewis as they improved their record to 7-2.

"Our aggresive and hustling play en- abled us to enjoy a very successful season," reflected Coach james Shevlin. Taking first place in the Queens Division, the Red Devils were undefeated in regular season play with an 8-0 mark. They breezed past Boys High with an impressive 4-1 win. Leading the club was junior Louis Marmel- stein, who played first singles against tough competition. Marmelstein posted a fine re- cord of six wins and two losses. The other singles spots were filled by Steven Kaye and Steven Sitver, who won six of eight and seven of eight, respectively. The doubles teams proved to be a key fac- tor in this year's success. "I always had to de- pend on them to win," said Shevlin, "and they did." The regular doubles teams of Russel Newman and Randi Shapiro, Keith Morris and Martin Sharit, were undefeated the entire season.

As editors, we found ourselves in a position of authority over our friends and it became in- creasingly difficult for us to be fair taskmasters and still maintain our friendships. ln trying to make our deadlines we might have acted harshly, but we hope the staff knows we did it to make this book special. We thank them for a great job. After months of searching in vain for an appropriate theme that would be relevant today and remain so in the future, we came up with "A Lit- tle Bite of the Big Apple." Everyone on the staff gave us ideas to enhance the theme and now it is very special to us. Also special are the two color sections, of which we are very proud. We thank both our advisors, Mrs. Lois Miller and Mrs. Madeline Staf- fanell, for all they have done for us and our yearbook. Finally, to you the reader, we hope that you will get as much pleasure from reading it as we have had from producing it.

Martin VE-xt, ' Y l I 933335152 Reaching the student body was the Forum's aim for this year. We. have tried to encourage participa- tion in school-wide activities. Al- though the work was time consum- ing, I enjoyed the challenge of pro- ducing the school paper. Amy-jeanne Y .-v""" as-ff ww :Wx ci, "lt's the only way the students can communicate with the school," said Mrs. Daisy Lainis, advisor of the school newspaper, the Forum. Its aim is to "provide a forum for the exchange of ideas." The Forum staff works to solve school problems through editorials and letters to the editor. Some work is also done "undercover" by discussing grievances with the administration without publicizing them. "The Forum has the greatest influence on school poli- cy," states Mrs. Lainis. It has brought about reforms in many areas of school life, including Arista requirements, attendance procedures, Graduation requirements, the administration of SING, the Service League and service credits, use of class passes, and the Student Organization. There is little censorship, according to Mrs. Lainis. "The students are the only control." While learning "the power of the printed word," the staff also learns to be reason- able, fair, thorough and respectful. Despite its attributes, the Forum has numerous prob- lems: The size of the paper has been reduced due to insufficient funds, the staff is overworked because many of its members tend to be involved in other extracurricu- lar activities, and there is continual difficulty in meeting deadlines. However, the staff is always proud of its work. Since the first edition in 1936, the Forum has changed its style to keep apace with New York City's commercial newspapers. Like its professional counterparts, the Forum has updated its format, using more photographs and a newer method of printing. Although some students join the Forum because they plan a career in journalism, many work just for pleasure and knowledge. Working on the paper is a constructive experience for all. fmt? UM lv' iv uw 1 f Student rganization The Student Organization regu- lates all student activities in Flushing High School including funding all clubs and organizations and spon- soring student activities. This year, the S.O. under the su- pervision of Mr. Ronald Zanni, was especially active. It sponsored many new activities such as movie and Disco Nights and jacket Day. The S.O. also funded athletic teams, the Auxilary Service for high school equivalency, and special science, art, and social studies courses. Most of the income for S.O. activities came from pretzel sales, sfund raising ac- tivities, and S.O. card sales. This year's S.O. officers include: Rosanna Durruthy, president, Karen Setty, vice-president, Mary Lou, treasurer, and Sandra Duarte, secre- tary. ' Consultative One of the committees con- cerned with the inter-relationships of the students, parents, faculty and administration is the Consultative Council. Each group has at least two repre- sentatives and at the monthly meet- ings that are held, issues concerning student rights, administrative and faculty policies and parent involve- ment are discussed. Agendas are prepared in advance by the fifteen people on the council and presented to the principal, Mr. Costaras, who presides over the monthly meetings. Student activi- ties, administrative allotments and faculty concerns are discussed in or- der to maintain awareness and com- munication among students, parents and faculty. lL-RJ Sandra Duarte, Rosanna Durruthy, Mr. Ronald Zanni, Karen Setty, Mary Lou C 'l .

The Service League of Flushing High School is made up of students who perform various services for the school. Members of the League work as aides for teachers and the administration and act as ushers for school functions such as College Day, Career Day, Open School Week, and the Spring Concert. Fifteen students form the Service Squad, the group responsible for the distribution and collection of service sheets. This year, for the first time, the sheets recorded the number and quality of services rendered, rather than service points. The system was changed because some students were receiving up to 700 credits. "It didn't mean a thing," explained Mrs. Suzanne Kallich, Ser- vice League advisor. The service re- cords of seniors are reviewed by a panel of teachers and administrators at the end of the year to determine the award winners. This year the Flushing Tutorial Center located in room 195-C was available to help students in need of scholastic instruction. Students came to the Tutorial Center either on their own or on the suggestion of their grade advisors or teachers. Mrs. Suzanne Kallich, the Tutorial advisor, assigned each stu- dent to a tutor, and the pair met during a free period. Most tutors were chosen from Arista, candidates for Arista or students recommended by subject teachers because of high scholastic record. "Both students and tutors benefit greatly from tutorial instruction. Stu- dents improve their skills, and tutors get some experience in teaching," commented Mrs. Kallich. Senior Council The Senior Council, comprised of elected representatives from each senior section, held numerous meetings throughout the year. Dur- ing these meetings plans were made concerning such matters as the sen- ior trip, the prom, and fund-raising activities. Money raised this year was used to finance the rental of an auditorium for graduation and the purchase of flowers and refreshments for gradu- ation and Awards Night. Some funds were also used to pay for the print- ing of programs and invitations for both occasions. The remainder was used to purchase the Senior Class gift to Flushing High School. The faculty advisor for the Senior Council is Mrs. Virginia Chan. "She has helped us tremendously in all as- pects," commented Sonia Schicter, vice president of the Senior Council. "She advised and guided us through the entire year and was a great asset to the Senior Class."

One of the most successful of FHS's club activities was the Interna- tional Festival held in the Student Life Center on june 11, 1977. "It was simply an amazing effort on the part of all those involved," ex- claimed Dr. Diana Battipaglia, chair- man of the Music Department. A variety of foods was prepared including Indian, Korean, Greek, jewish, Italian, Turkish, and Spanish dishes. While members of the faculty were sampling the food, musical en- tertainment was provided bythe ln- ternational Club. The International Club, advised by Mrs. Eumelia Pretel, is comprised of many students from different ethnic backgrounds. Members interact so- cially, sharing each other's music, dances, and cultures. ln addition, each year the group performs at a Foreign Language Festival held at York College. 4'q5qAQa?A if 6' C673 94,460,500 N at L, age. 'VJ fp Asian Club The diversity of Flushing's student body is shown by its large Asian pop- ulation. To serve this group, the Asian Club was formed. The aim of the club is to organize Flushing Asians and to promote an understanding and awareness of Asian culture and the variety of na- tional backgrounds. This aim is ful- filled by discussions and proposed solutions to problems facing Asians in America. This year, an advisory panel was also created to handle in- dividual difficulties. A major obstacle facing most Asians is the difficulty in adapting to a different lifestyle and language. The club assists in a smoother transition. The activities staged by the group include excursions to plays, muse- ums, and other areas of cultural in- terest. The Asian Club hopes to promote individual awareness and self esteem not only with Asians, but with all ethnic groups.

Italian- merican Club The Italian-American Club, ad- vised by Mrs. ludith Costa, gives stu- dents the opportunity to get togeth- er and discuss Italian culture. Its pur- pose is not to separate Italians from all other nationalities, but to keep them from becoming a "forgotten people." The club members need not be Italian. Any student who is interested in Italian culture is wel- come to participate. During the course of the year, the club arranged outings to nearby places of cultural interest, such as the Cloisters and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The members not only learned about European culture on each trip, but also had great fun. Although Mrs. Costa is the founder of the Italian-American Club, she credits Mrs. Suzanne Kal- lich with keeping the club alive by recruiting new members and en- couraging older ones to become more active. rape Top Row IL-RI: Americo Frascino, Paul Capucciati, Edith Straway, Lucy Gritsch, Fernanda D'Agos tino, Carla Nasso, Alfonso Margo, Renzo Gagliardi, Bottom Row CL-RJ: Mrs. Suzanne Kallich, Bernie Raigoza, Lisa Simonetti, Peter Costa, Rita Greci, Tina Schiano, Vinny Correale, Enzo Marino.

Flushing's Black Coalition is an or- ganization that tries to solve difficul- ties which minority students might face. At the semi-monthly meetings, students are encouraged to talk over school problems as well as personal ones. Members are urged to contin- ue their education and are given in- formation about colleges. Many meetings are spent planning fund-raising events such as cake sales, which are held often because of their popularity. The monies raised are used toward the annual presentation of the Godfrey Cam- bridge Award, given in june at Awards Night. Three students are honored with plaques from the club citing their exceptional achievement in music, art or service to the school and community. Bevae Mack served as president of the Coalition this year, with Myron Parker as vice president and Rosanna Durruthy filling the post of secre- tary-treasurer. Mr. Ronald Zanni was the faculty advisor. Since it was revived at FHS two years ago, the West Indian Club has been constantly growing in popular- ity. With members from many of the Caribbean islands, including jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados, the club meets weekly under the supervision of Mr. Allen Perlow. At each meet- ing, the members discuss their cul- tural backgrounds and the way their cultures contrast and blend. Besides the discussions, members can relax by playing games such as cards, dom- inoes or ping pong. Several club trips were taken dur- ing the year. The first two were to "Caribbean Day" festivals held at York College and Lehman College. Other events included seminars giv- en by important West Indians in New York, a dinner featuring West Indian dishes, and a show of Caribbean dances and songs.

WQWQA "This year's Girls and Mixed Choruses consisted of a cross-section of Flush- ing High School's population," commented Dr. Diana M. Battipaglia, conduc- tor of both groups and chairman of the Music Department. The choruses included ninth through twelfth graders with singers of varying abilities. Traditionally, the two choruses perform at the Winter Assembly programs, the Spring Concert, local junior high schools and the Annual Holiday Festival held at the Pan American Building. Both groups were unusually large this year. Each consisted of over 100 students which inevitably presented problems. "Working with the individual was impossible during class," remarked Dr. Battipaglia, "but I tried to compen- sate with private coaching afterwards." Dr. "B" also found difficulty in obtaining material suitable for the diverse capabilities of the students. "However," she stated, "I finally decided to choose songs varying in degrees of difficulty. The choruses, on the whole, have im- proved greatly."

The Senior and Intermediate Bands, led by Mr. Bert Haber, were as busy as ever this year. With sixty members in the Senior Band and over fifty in the Intermediate, this year's bands were much larger than previous years'. "The large size is good for the band," said Mr. Haber. "The more people that are in it, the more instru- ments there are, and the stronger the band sounds. Also, there is no more trouble in teaching a large band than in teaching a small one." The bands will remain large in future years, as there are over forty students in the present Elementary Band who will be joining the Senior and Intermediate Bands. The bands performed in many places, including all FHS Football games, the Flushing Day Parade, the school's annual Winter Concert and Spring Concert. A great variety of musical pieces were selected for performance by the bands this year. Among them were a "Godspell" melody, a tribute to Glenn Miller, two Israeli dances, and the theme from "Rocky," ' Ensemble Mad rigal 3 gaps Top Row QL-Rl Hyun-Soo Lee, Paulette Smith, Laura Richardson, Kim Hollie, Veronica Green, Debbie Stanford, Carol Brooks, 3rd Row KL-RJ Dr. Diana M.

One of the most popular groups at Flushing High School has been the Madrigal Ensemble. From a group of only eight a few years ago, it has grown to over fifty students this year. The Madrigal Ensemble is a chorus of select voices that sings challeng- ing music without accompaniment. The stress is on the beauty and har- monization ofthe voices functioning as a unit. Every Christmas, the En- semble performs at the Pan Ameri- can Building and also at the Statler Hilton Hotel. In the spring they par- ticipate in a rating festival with other high schools. This year, the Madrigal Ensemble enhanced such special events as Law Day at the Queens Court House, Awards Night, the Winter Assem- blies, Graduation, the Spring Con- cert, and the Arista Installation Cere- mony. Technically speaking, Flushing's eleven member Orchestra should be called a string ensemble. However, according to Abby Rosenthal, Con- certmistress, "We may be a small group, but we work hard together and perform as would a symphony orchestra." The Orchestra had to overcome several problems this year in order to perform. The humidity of the storage room damaged many instru- ments, while others suffered from disuse. Some students who joined the group had no previous musical training. This led to a wide variety in the musicians' abilities. Because of the size of the class, orchestra con- ductor and teacher Mr. Phillip Rap- paport was able to work with the students individually. The orchestra's only performance this year was at the Spring Concert. The group's varied repertoire in- cluded both popular and classical songs, including "You Light Up My Life" and Mozart's Twelfth Sympho- ny. Voices Gf Spirit "Voices of Spirit" is a new gospel choir that was formed this year at FHS. The twelve members estab- lished and ran the chorus under the auspices of Dr. Diana Battipaglia, chairman of the music department. Their motto is 'jesus is the best thing that ever happened,' accord- ing to Al Morgan, president of the choir. "We hope that others will come to know C-od through our mu- sic," says Vice President Sheila Ra- venel. In order to join, members must have a belief in God and an under- standing of the meaning of gospel music. This year, the choir performed at the Winter Assembly programs, the Pan American Building, the Franklin Nursing Home, and various neigh- borhood churches. The group sang "Christmas Time" and "joy to the World" among others. The songs were arranged by choir members under the direction of jeffrey Alder- man, pianist. Seekers The Seekers, formerly called the Bible Club, is one of Flushing's oldest clubs. Its name was changed because members felt that they were not only reading the Bible but also seek- ing to understand God. At their weekly meetings, the ten members, of varied faiths, select readings from the Scriptures and dis- cuss them. "We also learn from one another," says Renee Smith, presi- dent of the Seekers. There are no requirements for membership, all students who are in- terested are welcome to join. This year's advisor was Mr. Steven Schon- brun.

Arista, the honor society of Flush- ing High School, is an organization that recognizes outstanding students and also performs many valuable ser- vices for the school. Potential Arista members must meet stringent scholastic and service requirements. The membership cri- teria for juniors includes two terms of a 900fo average and three types of service to the school. Seventh-term- ers are required to have three terms of an 8806 average and eight services while eighth-termers need an addi- tional two services. Thirty-five new members were initiated into Arista at the installation in january, joining thirty-three vet- erans. Although there fewer new members this year, Mrs. Suzanne Kallich, advisor, says that standards will not be lowered. Members pledge to live up to the high ideals of character, scholarship and services. I 5 v .EA .gf f M fir, u ' asa. 'OM 6... Math Team Flushing High School's math teams are composed of the top juniors and seniors in the field of mathematics. The purpose of the teams is to pro- vide interested students with an in- tellectual challenge. Both Senior and junior math teams have approximately fifteen official members, however, only eight to thirteen members are present at meets. Although the junior team is paired with john Bowne High School and the Senior team with Francis Lewis and Bayside High Schools, the math teams do not compete with other schools. Individual students, howev- er, do compete on a city-wide basis. "At math team meetings," Mr. Ed- win Cohen, advisor, explained, "members approach sample compe- tition problems and try to extend areas of mathematical knowledge." In competition, the Senior team receives questions dealing with any mathematical branch except calcu- lus, while the juniors' areas of com- petition include geometry, interme- diate algebra, and trigonometry. Bio-Medical The Bio-Medical Society is a club where students with an interest in medicine and related health fields are able to learn more about their interests. This year the Bio-Medical Society provided such activities as tours of local hospitals and nursing homes, and lectures by guest speak- ers on topics ranging from epidemo- logy to acupuncture. As a result of these activities, the members of the Bio-Medical Society were able to have a fuller understanding of their interests. The Bio-Medical Society provides a medium for new science programs to reach FHS students from other science organizations around the city.

Secretarial Honor Society 5 IL-Rl Miss Alberta Kanya, loyce Greenberg, Kathy Amedeo, Amy Baumgarten, Debra Hunt, Geor- gia Bookas. Sophomores, juniors and seniors worked together this year to write the S.O. Newsletter. "Our purpose was to report information that is im- portant to the students," stated San- dra Duarte, secretary of the Student Organization and coordinator of the Newsletter. "We write about school activities and anything else that con- cerns the students." The Newsletter regularly reported on the Student Organization, SING, the Executive Internship program, the Student Life Center, school teams and numerous clubs. The staff also wrote articles dealing with problems outside of school. Two such stories explained how to avoid buying an inferior stereo system and how to earn money by writing arti- cles for commercial magazines. ln spite of a slow start and many problems, the staff managed to pub- lish several issues this year. At first many articles were misplaced or not submitted, but a committee was formed to organize the work and a new format was adopted to improve the Newsletter's appearance. The staff was supervised by Mr. Ronald Zanni. The Secretarial Honor Society is a group whose achievements in short- hand, typewriting, and stenography places them in demand in the busi- ness world. The members often gain employment after graduation as sec- retaries and typists. The girls in the honor society must achieve 90 per cent grades in shorthandftyping or clerical practiceftyping in one term and have an overall average of 80 per cent in all subjects with no failures. This year there were 27 students in the Secretarial Honor Society. Q S Leaders Club The Leaders is an organization for girls who excel in Physical Education, and who eventually hope to teach Health Education or participate in sports as a profession. "The Leaders Club membership was at a peak this year," Mrs. Virginia Chan, the advisor, declared happily. "There were at least 20 full-fledged Leaders and many other girls in- volved in the 'Leaders in Training' program." The girls' most important duty was to assist the teachers in the larger gym classes by taking attendance, leading warm-ups, and coaching other girls. The trainees' major pur- pose was to learn the 100 points nec- essary to become a full-fledged lead- er. Leaders' activities this year includ- ed a "Parents' Sports Night," where Leaders and their parents competed in several sporting events, and a "Leaders Meet" involving Leaders from several Queens schools in ath- letic competition. Auto Club The Auto Club of Flushing High School is a unique group of students who are interested in auto mechan- ics. The bulk of the members come from the Auto Lab classes. Their meetings are irregular, they may meet daily for several weeks or not for weeks on end. Some of the members are experts in repairing a specific part of the automobile. When they meet, the group gains experience and knowl- edge by examining an automobile belonging to a faculty member. They examine the different parts of the automobile and discuss the items that need to be repaired, how to recognize them, and how to correct malfunctions. They also learn about the operations of different mechani- cal apparatus used in examining and fixing an automobile. Mr. Rasmus Erdal, one of the club's two advisors, commented, "The abilities of this group will not be tapped fully until such time as the school system sees the need for modernizing our auto lab facilities." Mr. Gerald Muratore is the other ad- visor. v S s Top Row QL-RJ Vickie Coumnas, Susan McEntee, Robin Davis, Bottom Row KL-Ri jackie Sifflet, Susan Egan, Miriam Coronell, Renee Smith, Gigi Brannum.

IFAMUUIUFY Il I ,I I fl many meetings and am constantly making decisions. I only hope and pray that I make the right decisions," commented Mr. james Costaras, principal. Mr. Costaras has devoted 23 years of his life to FHS, hi "Home away from home." He was assigned here for his firsl teaching job as a substitute in 1957, and has been with us ever since. In college Mr. Costaras switched from a pre-dentistry ma- jor to education. "I decided to pull answers from students, instead of teeth!" Mr. Costaras said jokingly. As principal, Mr. Costaras misses the close student contact he had as a teacher, but he compensates for this by teachin Intensive Spoken Spanish at Fordham University. Occasion ally Mr. Costaras will observe a class or even teach it in orde to keep in touch with the students. Although this is not the first time an acting principal of school has been officially appointed principal, it is not thg trend. The Board of Education feels that the acting principal has been with the school too long and is too familiar with th faculty and the old ways of running the school. Mr. Costara disagrees with this, and stated that knowing the school ha certain advantages. One of them is that you can understan the problems facing the faculty and the student body. Since he has been principal Mr. Costaras has re-examined some of the curriculum offerings and has added such new courses as Advanced Placement Biology, Man-Made World, and Advanced Auto Shop. Concerning the theme of this yearbook, Mr. Costaras commented, "75 percent of FHS students were accepted by different colleges last year. In four years, they will return to NYC and work in our industries as well as spend money here. The other 25 percent will have been taught specific skills to be used in the business world. All our graduates add to the growth and survival of the city." One major problem that faces Mr. Costaras is the new agreement between the Board of Education and the UFT about not hiring substitute teachers because of the fiscal crisis. Other teachers must cover for the absent teacher. "Everyone suffers from this agreement, but we have been trying to function to the best of our ability. I'm very proud of' the work being done by the staff. It's really admirable to see how the teachers have managed to cope." "Being principal keeps me on my toes.

"It is a money-making subject. Ev- eryone can use it once they gra- duate high school." Mr. Robert Forrest thinks ac- counting is helpful to students in their daily lives. "It is all based on consumerfbusinessman contact." Mr. Abraham Cherkes' ersonal P philosophy of accounting is ex- pressed by this original byword: "Life is a just employer, He gives you what you ask But once you set the wages, Why, you must bear the task!"

XX 1 EUGENE LUHRS When Mr. Rasmus Erdal, Assistant Principal of the IndustrialArts Department, donated his station wagon to the Automotive Lab, the students had to saw it in half and partially disassemble it in order to get it trough the Auto Lab door. The Auto Lab received other auto equipment from a grant under the Vocational Education Act. However, the other shops: Photography, Drafting, and Architectural Drawing, Woodworking, Metal, Appliance Repair and Electricity have been hurt by the financial crisis and have been forced to operate on a very low budget. Mr. Erdal feels that, "industrial Arts is useful, whether as the start of an education in a possible career or for use in emergencies." Mrs. Sophie Minkoff has been FHS' only Home Economics teacher ever since the budget cuts. She feels her subject can be beneficial to students be- cause it prepares them for domestic life, Some of the courses offered are international foods, nursing, and family psychology. "lnterna- tional foods is the most interesting class of all be- cause students learn new techniques of cooking," said Mrs. Minkoff. DUSTRIAL The English Department of FHS is a vital part of the school. It is a state man- date that a student have 8 terms of Com- munication Arts, two of which may be Speech. The most basic need is for a person to have control over his language in college and the outside world. The different classes offered by the English Department include journalism, Cre- ative Writing, a Sophomore writing class, Mystery and Detective, College Board Prep Course, Word Power, English in Business and Industry, and A.P. English. "People attracted to English are 'Ivory Tower People' who prefer to deal in ideals and heroic situations. Teaching such a subject in a high school offers a strange and exciting contrast," said Mrs. Madeine Staffanell. Dr. Eleanor Friedman, Assistant Princi- pal of the English Department, com- mented that, "Literature is the best liked subject among students. I look at litera- ture as a good way of communicating. One can communicate with the dead or living, it is also important for students to learn and appreciate our heritage in lit- erature." as V7 E NEDDY MCMILLS 3513! GLADYS FIELD V il' XV' I' .

In New York City alone, it is helpful to know Spanish because we are a bilingual city. Knowing another lan- guage is an asset when looking for a job. And as Mrs. Suzanne Kallich put it, "When you visit a foreign country, it is a great joy to be able to speak the language. In this 'shrinking world', to limit oneself to one language is foolish." The languages offered at Flushing are: Spanish, French, Italian, and Greek. Mrs. Diane Levine, Assistant Principal of the Spanish Department ex- plained that, "We are trying to get an Advanced Place- ment class and are constantly expanding our bilingual pro- gram." The E.S.L. Program lEnglish as a Second Languagel is a six term course for people who cannot speak English. The Spanish speaking students take all their major classes in Spanish and have two periods of English daily. R , f. 'X MARY SKLAVOS 'A tw , . J .1 S ff.. L.

You can use your hands as well as your mind. lt's a form of original- ity," stated Mr. Sampson Engoren, Assistant Principal of the Art De- partment, in discussing the impor- tance of art in a student's program. "lt is important for every student to take art even if they think they do not have talent for it. If their talent is brought out and developed, they can make a career of it as artists, sculptors, or designers," he added. The courses offered in this de- partment are Fine Art and Studio Art. AND - I-P 87 - 88 Arthur Tunell, the Assistant Principal of the Physical Education Department, describes physical education not as the teaching of physical fitness, but as teach- ing by use of a physical medium. By tak- ing physical education, students learn teamwork, good sportsmanship, and how to obey instructions. Mr. Dom Montalbano commented, "Getting a good physical education helps mental and social molding for deciding what is right or wrong." "Physical activity is something that a person is involved in all his life," stated Mrs. Virginia Chan. "lt is important for people to keep in shape, so that they are healthy in their later life." This year for the first time the Boys' and Girls' Physical Education Depart- ment were united under one supervisor, Mr. Tunell. Besides a co-ed gym class, the Physical Education Department offers a variety of teams. Among them are football, basket- ball, volleyball, bowling, and tennis. 1 1124, :Q6a.ew7e,14 fb 77647 U ALMA DORIN 1-G, ALICE 1ANcovlc xl. X if at 'ii rye ax.

Also, both like the fact that every problem has a single answer. Mrs. Carol Fox feels, 'fMath is a game and it's great, you set the rules and you have to follow them." Mr. Alvin Lutsky doesn't know why he likes math, but knows he has always liked it. The Math Department offers a wide varsety of courses. New courses like ManMade World, Liberal Arts Math and Special Geometry have been added for students who aren't really 'into' math yet, while Advanced Placement Calculus is a recent addi- tion for students interested in a chal- lenge. Mr. Melvin Gilman joined the Math Department this year, working in the Math Lab, and Mrs. Sharon Schnitzer returned after being a vic- tim of budget Cuts last year.

What would life be like with- out it?" stated Mr. Walter Stamm, as he spoke about FHS' music program. "It's a personalized form of self-ex- pression." Dr. Diana Battipaglia, Assis- tant Principal, said, "Chorus exposes you to a variety of beautiful music. It improves your listening and teaches you to use your ear." Mr. Bert Haber added, "lt's easier for students to im rove their tal- ents here thlan at other schools, because FHS is know to have one of the finest mu- sic programs in New York City." "Speech is the basic form of communication. It teaches students to express their ideas orally as well as in writing," said Mr. Albert Zamelkani speech teacher. "The speech classes teach students to speak in an educated tone, consistin of clear expression of thouggt while using an ex- tensive vocabulary." Some of the electives of- fered are Radio and Televi- sion, Children's Theater, and Drama. The Science Department consists of many interesting and varied courses. Mr. Curtis Simmons, chemistry and phys- ics teacher, likes the factual aspects of these subjects. "l like anything l can sit down with and analyze," he said, and added that he is "always trying to learn new things." Mr. Simmons faced a challenging exper- ience last spring, when he replaced physics teacher Phillip Daar, who retired after 20 years at Flushing. Mr. Simmons claims that teaching physics is an experience he enjoys very much. Mr. Ronald Zanni, who teaches the new Advanced Placement Biology course, loves biology, "because it's life. Everybody wants to know more about life in general, and has wondered about it." Earth Science has more practical applica- tions according to Mr. james Rohde, who teaches this subject. "Earth Science is good for people who like to travel," he said, "And we live in an age where people travel more than ever. It's for enjoying life." The science department offered A.P. Biol- ogy for the first time this year. A new addi- tion to the faculty was Dr. Raphael Widman, replacing Mrs. Muriel Harris, who retired in February. Mr. Mirza Baig also joined the staff of the Science Department. Mrs. Adele Hayden and Mr. Richard Baris are not teachers, but are our lab specialists. The responsibility of the lab specialists in- clude making sure we have enough HZSO4, HCI, test tubes, and other apparati during Bio, Chem, and Physics Labs. The most profound comment was made by Mr. Rohde, who said, "Listerine is my favorite Gargoyle!" T? ROBERT WEINBERGER cuRTis siMMoNs t RAPHAEL WIDMN I L. ti!

Ac- cording to Mrs. Sylvia Feldman, "These courses are of great impor- tance because once learned, they can be useful for the rest of a stu- dent's life." Such skills can be used in college or on a job. Mrs. Lilyan Nielsen, the depart- ment's Assistant Principal, receives her greatest satisfaction when for- mer students come back to visit her after obtaining jobs using the skills they learned at FHS. Mrs. Feldman sees her greatest satisfaction a bit differently. "I like to see students enjoy what they are learning, because learning, is fun!" -6 ""'llvasq.,,, -1 BEATRICF TEPPERMAN STUDI S v Alulals N o 3 f 1 W i . JOHN ZIELONKA t . , X.

The students in these classes are usually bright. "I enjoy working with these children because it is giving them another chance to cope with life," stated Ms. Pat Goldstein. Ms. Goldstein teaches English and Art to her students. She has an assistant who helps her. They work with each student individual- ly, at his own speed. 'Ms. Goldstein also takes the stu- dents to museums. In Art, they take all their everyday experiences and use them in drawing or painting. john Zielonka is a Health Conser- vation who deals with handicapped people too. There is a difference though, these students are phys- ically handicapped. This program is vocationally oriented. Mr. Allen Perlow is the head of the SPARK program in FHS, which helps students deal with their problems through rap sessions and personal conferences. l lSlPlElClI A L 'T' Lfcahfl wi ff- 'Q cf' ' 1 Wx' 4 96 "After 21 years of teaching, I still like it. I still look forward to going to classes. I never find it boring," said Mr. Mi- chael Manson, social studies teacher. He sees education, in ge eral, as measured by "not op much you know, but k o ' g how to find out what u don't know." Mr. Man- s h, who teaches the Ad- nced Placement American History course, commented that Social Studies is useful for "being culturally well-round- ed and getting an intelligent perspective on life." The Social Studies Depart- ment offered several new courses for tenth and twelfth graders this year. For the tenth grade, The Human Ex- perience was introduced, which dealt with non-histori- cal aspects of Social Studies including Anthropology, Lin- guistics, Economics, and Soci- ology. Revolution and Vio- lence, which inquires intOo the nature of revolution was also offered. For seniors, aside from A.P. American History, classes in Criminology, Government, and Sociology were experi- mented with.

At the time they began working stated Karen it was just something to do during the summer vacation. But once I started work- ing with these children I realized how special they were and it was no longer just a job. Karen worked as a general counselor with a group of nine to twelve year old boys, while Beth worked as both a swimming instructor and a music teacher. Because of her diversified job, Beth was able to work with every child in the program, yet still was able to relate to them on an individual basis. Although their work was, at times, " frustrating ," it gave them great satisfaction to see the children respond to their efforts. "It's truly a great feeling to know that we were able to reach out and help others who needed us." They Give Their IEANETTE L.

Edmund has always enjoyed being creative but became trt inspired in Mr. Sampson Engoren's art class. Edmund state "Mr. Engoren constantly pushed me to excel and because him I did." Last year Edmund stayed after school every day jt to be able to work with Mr. Engoren. Edmund finds his z work very relaxing and at times very exciting. "I have works on several projects that I literally could not stop until they were finished." This past summer Edmund studied at the Parsons Institute of Art in Manhattan. He nc studies life drawing at the Queens Museum for three hours each Saturday. As for the Vulcan part of his life, Edmund is an avid fan of the television program Si Trek. He has been a member of the organization LOST lLoyal Order of Star Trekl for tl past two years. This organization was started by a group of his friends when he lived in! Croix. Although he has since moved to New York, his love for Star Trek has n diminished. Combining his two loves into one, Edmund painted a six-foot mural on I sister's wall depicting a scene from a Star Trek episode. After he is settled in his chosen profession of engineering, Edmund hopes to earn college art degree. He would like to someday combine his art work with his engineerii and this, to Edmund, would be very "fulfilling," MITCHELL ANN-MARNIE SUSAN KOWALCWK KUPFERBERG LAcRoix NORMAN ELLEN LANDESBERG LANGENBERG PATTY LAMAGNA I - I MONIQUE LAUDERDALE HYUN-SOO LEE RICKY LEE t- ii 5 fx vga.

Alfred's interest began about five years ago while he was away at camp in the Poconos. It was his first time in this area and the variety of wildlife intrigued him. About a year later he began bringing the animals home. At last count, Alfred had a collection of about fifteen animals, including leopard frogs, tiger salamanders, and red-spotted newts. Alfred is presently a member of the New York Herpetological Soci- ety, an organization specializing in the study of reptiles and amphib- iians. The organization holds monthly meetings and lectures, which Alfred regularly attends in order to gain as much information about his "pets" as possible. Alfred maintains that although he enjoys his hobby greatly, he does not plan to make a career of it. It will remain for him just a lifelong pleasure.
