But if you go out to the courts, he hails you with a friendly greeting, and often stops to talk. Usually he reminisces about the "good old days" remembering his former students and his consistently winning teams. His proteges include such outstanding players as his own two sons, Rich and Doug, George Turner, Mike Devin, and Hale Maher, who was ranked fifth in San Diego County. The tennis team is the only Lancer team competing with public schools. In addition, it has captured the CIF Southern League championship for the three years it has competed. This teacher is not only concerned with the members of his team, but also with all players he instructs. Who can forget "Bend your knees! Follow through and hold itl"? Though he works for perfection, he tempers the pressure with joking and teasing. He demands much of himself as well, and is extremely competitive. This may have come from his background. The son of an army doctor, he moved frequently as a child. He was the Junior Tennis Champion of the Panama Canal Zone. After college in the South, he became a naval aviator flying all types of aircraft including blimps. He served in the Navy 22 years, worked as a Russian interpreter for the C.I.A., and was highly decorated. Always he played on various tennis teams including the Junior Davis Cup. After retiring from the Navy, he came to Parker. This year, his twelfth, he resigned as coach. He is still teaching at both campuses and advocates physical activity for everyone. To keep fit he runs and plays tennis. Who could better exemplify the All-American spirit than this dedicated man? With sincere admiration and thanks, we dedicate the l976 CAVALCADE to Mr. Chuck Freer. Above left, with Tim Rutherford. Inset, Hale Maher. 5 qs:-u.,,k :gk E 7. 1 W My -. V X Hx ....-...--P af' dis...

The 1975 Lancers captured their second straight Southern League Title, ending 7-I-0 overall, and tallied more shut- outs this season than ever before in Parker history. ' The Lancers coasted through the League matches winning all by shut-out scores. Three Los Angeles teams vied with Parker pre-league. Lessons were learned at Chadwick where the Lancers suffered their only loss of the year shattering hopes for another undefeated season. Steve Sourapas and Jim Hanafin equally divided MVP status and shared honors as team captains for the year. Sourapas' explosive running game and accurate arm inspired the Lancers' avaricious offense while Hanafin shouldered the yoke of a sturdy defense at linebacker. For this burden Hanafin also earned thx title of Defensive Player of the Year. Mike Sourapas, whose speed and evasive antics made him leading scorer and ground gainer, was honored as Offensive Player of the Year. Homecoming proved to be the zenith of the 1975 season when the Lancers quelled the hard-hitting Knights of San Miguel, 39-0.

During the week before the game, students competed in the Girls' League spirit contest by wearing brown and gold one day, clashing costumes another, buying tickets for Saturday night's dance, and yelling enthusiastically at the pep rally. Seniors won candy bars as prizes, and Mr. Russell ate five. Gameday activities began at noon with the Fathers' Club barbecue lunch. Half time activities included the crowning of Sarah Semlak as Homecoming queen with Dave Cook as head escort. Kiki Flores, Carl Du Plessis, julie Mansfield aml Mark Oemcke completed the elected court. 19 Keep Teh en Sheer Vers1ty's Here The varsity cheerleaders, most of whom are seniors, have many fond memories of a spirited year. Probably best known as the girls with the ever-present cans of TAB they could be seen along the sidelines at all the football and basketball A games ready to start a rousing cheer. But a lot more behind the scenes effort Went into maintaining school spirit. The girls decorated locker rooms, distributed oranges to the football team after practice, organized spirit buses and pep rallies, and made enormous posters on butcher paper. Other highlights of the year were cheerleading camp during the summer and riding to away games with Mr. Bennett. ' Above right, Sarah Selnlali displays Parker pep. Above, "VVhat's next?"

J .V.'S on its Way The junior varsity were busy learning new chants all year and never quite felt that they did all of them eorrectly. They hada lot of laughs along the way and were sure that the crowd was entertained by their antics. Nl r. Kerkering must have thought that they were a little crazy when he moved the varsity team away from them to the opposite side of the gym. 'lihough the year was somewhat frantic, it was a good one for learning and growing. It was one they will not soon forget. SL Above left, Jocelyn Guiles ponders the play.

Right, Dave- Cook shoots against strong defense-. 22 "Prove it" was the Lancers' huddle break slogan, and that's exactly what they did in a victorious '75-'76 season. Coach Brian Kerkering was confronted with a challenge. The new basketball coach had a tough act to follow after the '74-'75 record. He had the material, but most important, he had the desire, and built a team that was ranked number ten in the county. The Lancer team faced an exacting schedule this year yet boasted a 24-3 overall season record. Chadwick and two public schools, Mt. Carmel and Ramona, were the only stumbling blocks for the Lancers. The Southern League Tournament trophy and the Huntington Valley Christian Tournament trophy are displayed in Parker's front office thanks to the Lancer cagers. A spotless 9-0 league record wasn't surprising as the Lancers clinched the Coastal Division. They were slated against the Mountain Division Champion, the Christian Patriots, for the Class lA crown. After a frigid first quarter, the Lancers came to life, and at the end, raised their hands in victory. Dave Cook was elected to THE SAN DIEGO UNlON'S county first team. He also amassed the highest average in the county. He was voted MVP, and named on the Southern League first team along with Carl DuPlessis. Steve Sourapas, Byron Harlan, and Mark Laser made second team. Mike Crone's hustle brought him honorable mention.

Captures League Title Seasons come and go, but this season will long endure in the memories of those who watched the Al.V. basketball team and those who played on it. They were an inexperienced group in the beginning, who became increasingly proficient as the season wore on. The team won only five of their first thirteen games. However, six of the losses were by less than five points. As more time was spent on the court, the players' confidence increased. By the end of league play, the team had jelled into a smooth-running basketball machine winning the Southern League JV title. Not enough can .be said about Coach Dave Glassey who skippered this team to an undefeated league mark. He patiently corrected the mistakes of the inexperienced team, dilignetly teaching the players the fundamentals of the game, and then took pride in the results. Honors went to Jack Kruger and jim Crawford for consistently outstanding play in this inconsistent season. 24 Se .4 5-.. -tis .. ASM ' S. i K ' S, - 1. ts.

All-leaguer Carl DuPlessis, returning letterman Steve Sourapas and numerous new players comprised the starting line-up. Steve DuPlessis and new addition Mark Laser were called upon to pitch for the the Parker nine. 'lihe Lancers were to participate in the Lions Club Tournament, gaining experience and composure for the crucial following league contests. Ar this writing, the season was in its early stages, but the Lancers were slated to meet Christian in the finals in defense of their title. Coach Dave Glassey and his players were confident that they could win the Class IA title for a second year. Below, Dave Cook.

The long distance endurers were very much in the running with freshman Frank Strausser and returning miler Ted Nothorn. Depth was a problem for the thinclads with only four returning varsity and five junior varsity lf-tu-rmen. The addition of assistant coach J.P. Newmark was expected to bring out the best from the Lancers. Right, jeff Blum gracefully clears the hurdles. 31 Girls Get Sporting Chance Playing in an unofficial league of small schools, Parker girls were able to compete in a program similar to the boys'. Hampered by a lack of playing experience and competition, the girls still enjoyed full seasons of volleyball and basketball. They also took part in a track and field day meet, both co-ed tennis and track, and in an imaginative P.E. program. The year opened with the volleyball team, coached by Mr. Kerkering, setting a 2-4 record, and gaining a chance to play in the CIF playoffs. Although competition with Bishop's and Our Lady of Peace, where volleyball is a year-round sport, was rather one-sided, the team, comprised of mainly freshman, made a strong showing. Members of the volleyball team were: Lisa Cook, Patti Crews, Mary Day Dewart, Lori Fisher, Liz Gildred, Lisa Goehring, Kirsten Hedin, Madeleine Herrill, Marcy Maher, Jenny Smith, Chris Trepte, Cathy Vafis, and julie Wahlen. Due to the popularity of basketball, Coach Volker was able to recruit both a varsity and j.V. team. Although the results of the season were not available at press time, ten games were scheduled in a six school league, and a lot of intense practice was going on after school. Renee Bryant took advantage of the "equal opportunityn attitude and competed with the boys' track team. Several girls played on the co-ed tennis team. Among the varied activities in the girls' P.f'f. program were the 7th and 8th basketball play-offs, folk-dancing, figure control weight- lifting, archery, and aerobic dancing. 2 !

That's our trademark -simply because we didn't have enough time to make any other trademarks! As coach my only real hope before our first game of the season lbesides trying to learn the players' namesl was to stress the basic fundamentals involved in basketball. The players took it from there by playing their hearts out on the court or cheering their hearts out on the bench. Who can ask for more?

Responsibilities of the Board include establishing the general philosophies, selecting the Headmaster, and overseeing the financial well-being of the school. These decisions are made by a total of twenty-eight members, including the Mothers' Club president, Fathers' Club president, and the student representative. Each member is elected to a three year term by Parker parents. I One problem facing the board this year was the lack of government food allotments which made it difficult to stretch the food budget. The most important issue was the effort to sell excess acreage at the upper school campus in an attempt to meet indebtedness. Two years were spent working on this project. The major stumbling block was the need for a zoning change. The dedication of this fine Board is evident in every area of life at Parker.

One may have a pre-occupied look as he mentally budgets for summer vacation, or tries to decide, if he is single whether to keep dating that certain friend.

For grades 9 through I2 there were dances, beginning early in the year with Homecoming. Also during first semester was "Magic of a Winter Night ," a dinner-dance at the Sheraton Harbor Island with live music by "Lightnin'." Second semester brought Hliicentennial ' Boogie" in February, two sock hops, and a Sadie Hawkins dance. The annual year-end semi- formal dance was held in june. Again a live band and a good turn-out made it an evening to remember. The junior high specialized in games nights. They rollerskated, played basketball, and dined and danced in the evening at the lower school. Sponsored by the Girls' League and Student Council, the games nights were enthusiastically attended. lf i fs..- D Top, dancers enjoy "Magic of a Winter Night." Above right, David Bassliam and date.

Above, girls' chorus on stage. Right, lflizahi-th Collins, Vital aspects of Parker life were the chorus and ' drama departments. Becoming more attuned to the needs of the school, changes were made in both areas during the year. Drama saw a trend towards smaller, shorter and more frequent productions as both Mrs. Hume and Dr Crone rehearsed two one act plays at press time, with spring productions planned. The cast for Dr. Cr0ne's "A Final Dress Rehearsal' included Leesie Assam, Denise Bailey, Lee Braly, Elizabeth Collins, jack Cook, Lori Fisher, Kiki Flores, Hilary Hanafin, Don Jones, Mary Nelson, Tim Nelson, Sarah Semlak and Betsy Smith. ln 'AThe Importance of Being Earnest" were Denise Bailey, Claire Baldwin, Carl DuPlessis, Lynda' La Fleur, Claire Myashiro, Letty Rosado, Frank Strausser, Cliff Treais, and Colette Wand. The chorus was also trying new things, with a smaller group and the introduction of choreography. Two big performances at Christmas and in the spring required a lot of preparation on Saturdays and after school. Membc-rs ofthe chorus were Renee Bryant, Jeannine DuBois, Helen Fares, Courtney Field, Anne Goodbody, Kristen Hobbs, Hattie Joe, Marit Kummeneje, Beth Lavender, Marcy Maher, Julie Mansfield, Desiree Mitrovich, Susan Peschel, Karen Reavis, Lori Schmelzer, Nina Severance, Jennie Smith, and Laura Wolf. 45 1 B1'B.l1'1S Dl1'1E Tradition was preserved as outstanding students from the 1974-75 school year were recognized at the annual Honor Society dinner held at the University Club early in October. Dr. Crone and Mrs. Holliday, a fifth grade teacher from the lower school, gave principle addresses. Mrs. Holliday recalled many fond memories of Parker experiences such as attending sixth grade camp and singing "H ya, hya, hya" with Mrs. Moore. Stifling a few giggles, thirty-five students took the Oath of Honor into the junior and senior Honor Societies. Seniors were Lee Braly, Carl DuPlessis, Lori Fisher, Don Jones, Scott Miller, M-ary Nelson, and Tim Nelson, juniors, Bob Bagnall, Maxine Fuentes, Brian Jones, Alex Mayer, Mark Oemcke, and Julie Mansfield. A Sophomores included David Bassham, Fred Blum, James Cottingham, Otto Eros, sloth Layton, Cliff Treais, Hugh Whelan, and James Whist'nandg freshmen were James Comstrock, Barbie jones, Beth Lavender, John Mansfield, Adrianne Moss, Katherine Palmer, Nina Severance, Chris Trepte, Ernie Tucker, Cathy Vafis, Julie Wahlen, Colette Wand, and Laura Wolf. Two students were specially honored with national awards. Mary Nelson was named a National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test finalist, and Lee Braly received a Letter of Commendation.

The Russian club was designed to prepare students for Mr. Russell's trip to Russia this summer, under the auspices of the AIFS, an organization which has sponsored trips in the past. Versatile Coach Freer teaching a group of dedicated kids made the class especially unique. A mini-course in weight-lifting during fall P.E. classes gave impetus to a small group after school, taught by Coach Xiolker. Theggroup, making use of some fairly new equipment, concentrated on individual improvement. Modern dancing, also a spin-off of the P.E. classes, met weekly with a small group of girls, led by freshman Laura Wolf. The pep band, started by senior Scott Miller, was for most of the first semester, a kazoo band. lt later became a small woodwind ensemble. Among the featured tunes was a new school song composed by Scott. Though the winners were not known at press time, Parker's Science Fair projects promised to be fascinating and innovative. Last year's second place winner at the San Diego County Finals Competition, Karen Hirr, entered a project on Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, a method of getting electricity from solar heated water. Julie Mansfield prepared a survey concerning the Equal Rights Amendment. Jean Mullen's study on fingerprinting and bloodtyping in criminology was a definite contender.

Scott MiI1er KCIass of '76J Capable Leaders Head 7-12 Believe it or not, Jeff Blum, once known as a school clown, made a very conscientious student council president. His efforts were a welcome sight after last year's slump when much was discussed and little was accomplished. The productivity of the l976 ASB was shown throughout the year. The Homecoming Dance, the first dance of the year, was the biggest in Parker history. The mouthwatering refreshments were supplied by the joint efforts of Student Council and Girls' League. The band, Monsoon, was excellent. As a gesture of friendship, the Council presented a Bicentennial flag to the Lower School. While trying to keep straight faces, the kazoo band played the "Star Spangled Banner." Students from both campuses joined in pledging allegiance. With the help of a donation from the '74-'75 senior high, this year's junior high, and the school, this year's student council raised money for a stereo. It is to be used at dances and in the library. As Hilary Hanafin said, "We argued a lot, debated and discussed things, but the results were worth it." The peppy Junior High Student Council has been extremely successful in its efforts to present varied and interesting Games Nights and to promote a modern dancer program in P.E. It also contributed money for assembly speakers and the stereo. At spirited meetings the council showed enthusiastic interest in Parker and its activities. 50 1" ii!!

Girls' League is - 5Cl'lUUl SE1"VlCE El1'1ElFL11'1 The Senior High Girls' League, though it serves in many other ways, is best known for its daily candy sales. Students can be seen crowding the bookstore window everyday after school to buy candy in time to catch the busses. Among the activities which the Girls' League sponsored were the various events of Spirit Week, and participation in the traditional decorating for the Homecoming game. Traditional, also, was the slumber party for all girls which included games, dinner, a movie, a lot of TALK and singing. Christmas caroling is always a favorite activity. This year the girls sang, and served refreshments at Green Manor and University Hospital where they were gratefully received. The Junior High girls have spent an active year working on projects to benefit all of the upper school as well as the seventh and eighth grades. Girls' League sponsored Games Nights were very successful with roller skating as the most popular activity. Programs for the girls included a speaker on self- improvement and a baby-sitting workshop. The slumber party held in the gym was one of the memorable events of the year. Caroling with the Senior High Girls' League was a rewarding experience for all and an opportunity for service. Junior High Girls' Leaguers were also concerned with rai-sing funds with which to help Durchase needed equipment for the school. Stationery, candy and pop sales at football games, and assistance to the Mothers' Club helped in realizing this goal. 51 ClElI'lU1'l The CLARIQN staff can be proud of the ten issues published this year. They were informative, interesting, humorous, and accurate fwell, most of the timel. The additions of feature articles, such as "After Dark," about dining out and f'Rock 'n Roll Happening," added another dimension to the CLARION. "Martha's Vineyard" scooped all the latest social happenings. More student art found its way into the paper than ever before, and the photographers could always be counted on. Special thanks to the typists who often worked in their spare time to get last minute copy typed, and to Mrs. Dewart for never complaining when given a fourteen page paper to run off in two days.

Thanks for everyone's help!-Don and Lori Eavalcade This year's CAVALCADE was produced las such publications usually arej by a few dedicated people known as "editors," Little suspecting what they were in for, these people started the year off calmly enough meeting several days a week to look at a few pictures, choosing the cover, arranging finances and making grandiose plans Then reality set in. Deadlines had to be met and those "do or die" dates began to loom threateningly in the all too near future. So layout began, copy was written, photos were developed, contact sheets were printed, and slowly but surely final pages were completed. From November through February the staff spent long hours in Mr. Russell's room, on Saturdays, after school, during exams, any time, time could be found. Naturally conflicts, problems, and major and minor crises arose, but for the most part, peace prevailed, deadlines WERE met and it happened: CAVALCADE 1976! Above, left, everyone's here for once.

A special project in the shop class was the construction of a full size sabot, which was sold at the Mothers' Club auction. Jay Plaehn constructed his own sabot in class, and other students worked on projects such as bird feeders, cassette tape holders, exotic bowls, and model boats for the annual regatta. Auto mechanics, a class open to girls, although none signed up, was designed to train students to be competent "backyard mechanics," not professionals. Although this was a new class and was short on space and equipment, the group of 24 learned to repair and tune up engines, adjust brakes and perform general maintenance. Top, John Rippo works at the drill press. Above, an ambitious project for the auction. Right, first aid for a troubled car. A.. , f I WM 54 Mrs. Ghironi's sewing class was introduced last year to teach girls and boys the basic rudiments of sewing for themselves. As yet no boys have taken advantage of the course offering. Students provided the material, chose patterns, and created clothes, tablecloths, bags, etc. Results of their work were displayed and modeled at the year-end fashion show. , Art students experimented with different mediums. Work with clay, and pottery were popular projects. Many students tried their hands at jewelry making, silk screening, linoleum block printing, water color painting, life portraits and perspective drawings. Top, Laura Lerg sews a fine seam.

Especially so with this year's senior class, a close-knit group of only twenty-four, most of whom have been together at least since seventh grade. lTo quote a popular cynic, "almost too long."j But not everyone is an "old-timerf' Five new students, four of whom are visiting from Mexico, have joined the group. Seniors have a few other distinctions: the freedom to leave campus, take cuts in the lunch line and to drop P.E. second semester. The seniors of '76 can also be characterized by. . . going to symphonies and the theatre with Mr. Russell and Mrs. Corbin. . . taking classes at both USD and UCSD. . . running the concessions booth at the Southern League Tourney. . . taking a field trip to the Huntington Library, Paul Getty Museum and a Polytechnic basketball game. . . attending Grad nite at Disneyland. . .eating and sleeping through Humanities. . . feigning interest in college reps. . . filing a million college applications. . . playing in the Kazoo Band. . .spoofing "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and "Macbeth". . .and practically monopolizing the yearbook, Girls' League, Student Council and many sports. Along with the memories of our senior year, is the nostalgia of growing up at Parker: seventh grade at the lower school campus. . . tenth grade survival club camping trips. . . being guinea pigs for so many new projects. . .going through fads of squirt guns, yoyos, knockers, and cords. . . flying airplanes out of the music room windows. . . all the 16th birthdays. ..

Leaping at chances for authority, they participated to their fullest. They didn't win any awards during Spirit Week, and came in only third for "most spirit" in the pep rally, but it wasn't that they didn't try. Good humor and comradery were present throughout the year in this fun- loving bunch, and a few teachers dourly mistook this for rowdiness and disorder. They showed great interest in dances and had fun planning them. Academic achievement was also high. The classrooms were alive with their animated discussions, English being an especially favorite battling ground. The heated debates about poetry were carried on long after they left the classroom. All in all it's been a good year for the sophomores. They've accomplished much and are more than ready to face the llth grade. Left, Judy Kincaid all decked out.

And they shine in athletics tespecially in girls' sportsl, as well as in student council, chorus, drama and journalism.

Ambitions range from living a happy-go-lucky life to discovering a cure for cancer, but most of the members of this class have no idea what they want in the future. In the meantime, it's very exciting to explore new ideas and experiences in an aura of security with the Girls' League, Student Council, football and basketball. The class of 1980 is ready to emerge from its cocoon.

For the first few weeks, students began adjusting to the rigors of junior high life, complete with changing classes, having lockers, and doing plenty of homework. As the year progressed they enjoyed various after- school activities such as Games Nights, basketball and football games, and pep club. Five girls, Laura Crawford, Violet llko, Susan McKig, Anne Pavel and Mary Lou Quini, started, their own magazine, FOUR-SCORE, which featured puzzles, stories , and creative writing. During the month of November, the seventh grade participated in the canned and boxed food drive, winning the contest for collecting the most food which was distributed to needy families. The prize was an appreciated trip to San Dieguito Park.

Mowrey James Jarvis Cottingham December 3. l959 - April 15, I976 4 In Memoriam Jim Cottingham was killed in an airplane crash on April 15 when he was on his way to Palm Springs during spring vacation. The loss of this fine student and athlete was a shock to all. Dr. C rone offered the following prayer at flag-raising: Dear God: This is an enthusiastic recommendation for Jim Cottingham, a student and friend of mine from Francis Parker School. I've known Jim since the 5th grade-seven years in all. I'd ask you to please consider the following facts before deciding on a place for Jim: . Jim has always been an Honor Student excelling in all academic areas. He doesn't spell too well, but l know you'll overlook this. Jim is a good tennis player. His bac khand needs a little work, but he can really contribute in singles or doubles. He played JV basketball and is a real "comer" with his height and can play either forward or guard. Jim will be shy at first, but you'll find he has a great sense of humor, can laugh at his own misfortune and will show great maturity in anything you ask him to do. As you can see, we're fond ofjim- students and faculty alike. We'll miss him, but know he's in good hands and ask only that you keep him busy and challenged and use him on "Your team"-he'd like that.
