New York has always been
the prime example of the
"melting pot" theory. 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

But Really, There's

Flushing is an important and living part of New York. 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 the New York Cosmos beat

Three years ago, Edson Arantes do

bring the Championship to New

cer a very popular sport in America.
One of the most disappointing
blows to New York sports was when

Los Angeles over New York City as
the site of the 1984 Summer Olym-

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

The Student Life Center, Flushing High
School's newest addition, was opened in
September 1976. The Life Center is the
focal point of all student activities. 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

After an absence of three years, Flushing's
Senior Band participated in the Flushing Day
Parade. 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

They began to practice correct marching

Flushing's Music Department once
again showed off its expertise at the
annual Winter and Spring Concerts,
held December 23 and May 20, 1977,
respectively. At the Spring Concert,
featuring the Girls and Mixed Chor-
uses, Senior Band, Madrigal Singers and
Orchestra, there were also perfor-
mances by the jazz-Rock Ensemble and
vocal soloists. Among the selections
performed were Bach's "Brandenburg
Concerto," by the Orchestra, Selec-
tions from "A Chorus Line," by the
Band, "It Ain't Necessarily So," by solo-
ist jeffrey Alderman, and the finale was
a joint performance by Band and Chor-
uses of "Hallelujah" from Beethoven's
"Mount of Olives."
The Winter Concert also featured
the school's performing groups in
three concerts during a single day.
Among the selections were the Girls
Chorus singing "Carol of the Bells," the
Madrigals' "Little Drummer Boy" and

Students Are Fascinated by Congressman Rosenthal
This year Flushing students were
privileged to attend two series of lec-
tures on vastly different topics. 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-

Does Sandra Duarte come with the jacket?
One size fits all.
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.

and other Queens high schools attended, hoping to obtain information about colleges. Officials from
New York State and private colleges gave students insight into their educational destiny. A Financial Aid
Lecture was held to inform students and parents about receiving financial assistance. Many students
found that College Day gave them a more definite idea of their future.

McLaughin on the success of this
year's Cross Country team. 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."

Football Team Rebuilds
"Our biggest problem this year
was inexperience," said first year
coach, Chazz Schoenfield of his
football team, the Red Devils. "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
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

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.

This was one of my best squads
ever," commented Coach Tom Mul-
len, on the success of this years' Soc-
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.

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
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.

The Goals of the Forum this year
were to end student apathy, increase
reader interest, combat seniorities,
support student activities and in
general, change the school.
VE-xt, ' Y l
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.
"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.
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,

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
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

were chosen from Arista, candidates
for Arista or students recommended
by subject teachers because of high
"Both students and tutors benefit
greatly from tutorial instruction. Stu-
dents improve their skills, and tutors
get some experience in teaching,"
commented Mrs. Kallich.
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
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-
The International Club, advised by
Mrs. Eumelia Pretel, is comprised of
many students from different ethnic
backgrounds. Members interact so-

dances, and cultures. ln addition,

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

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

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
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-
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.

"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-

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,"

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

"Voices of Spirit" is a new gospel
choir that was formed this year at

auspices of Dr. Diana Battipaglia,

thing that ever happened,' accord-

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-

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-

Arista, the honor society of Flush-

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

will not be lowered.

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
The Secretarial Honor Society is a
group whose achievements in short-
hand, typewriting, and stenography

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.
The Leaders is an organization for
girls who excel in Physical Education,

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. 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
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."

"Accounting is a subject you can
always fall back on," commented
Mr. Leo Springer, Assistant Princi-
pal of the Accounting Department.
"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

But once you set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task!"

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.
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.
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-

Everyone who knows a for-
eign language is at an advan-
tage. 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

"To me, art is a creative subject.
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
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

Both Mr. Steven Weiss, Assistant

and its capacity to teach appreciation
of a certain beauty in the universe.
Also, both like the fact that every
problem has a single answer.

and you have to follow them." Mr.

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
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.

Typing, stenography, and steon-
graphyftranscription are but a few
of the courses offered by the Sec-
retarial Studies Department. 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!"

Special Education deals with
emotionally handicapped students.
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.

"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-

teacher. He sees education, in

that Social Studies is useful for

ed and getting an intelligent
perspective on life."

ment offered several new

Since last june Beth Bacharach andKaren Lud-
der have been working with the brain-injured at
the New York Association for Brain Injured
Children in Bayside and have found it very re-
warding. 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."

common, but to Edmund Brady they are two important pal
of his life.
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,"

Being ln the right place at the rrght tame can
often lead to great opportunltres It happened for
Denise Gurmo last year whlle she was watching a
fashion show A man notlclng her attractive ap
pearance approached her and offered her a job
cated at the prospect Denise accepted the job
and has been modeling ever slnce
Denise enthuslastlcally sand I just love modeling It really makes me
feel great She hopes to use her present modeling experience IH the
future I may decide to go unto modeling professronally or If not I
would like to become an anrllne stewardess Denise also stated I
wouldn t mlnd If modeling led to actmg Thus dream may someday
turn Into a reality for Denise has already been In a commercial for the

they have an undeserved reputation of being
, N - syyrsg, creepy and crawly, but actually they can be quite
- V fascinating," statesAlfred Cohen, explaining his
Q j I interest in reptiles and amphibians.
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
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

Paint the city twilight
After a day's calamity
Before the neon night
New York is living poetry
Retaining all magnificence
I believe its significance
Lies with hope and support from me
Can we, amid the confusions,
Love the passing city day?
Trust our city's future - stay
Seek the twilight's sweet conclusigygsw, iiis
