from Texas High School Press and also received a Medalist award from Columbia Scholastic Press. The Reata was named "State Champion" from Texas High School Press. In a poll taken by the Reata, ap- proximately 92 per cent of the seniors stated that they were college bound, showing a high interest in academic improvement. Memorial shows its pride with good reason. It is located in one of the fastest growing and most exciting cities in the nation and the school district is among the finest in the state. With "Who shot I.R.?" being the question of the year, the television series Dallas brought more attention to Texas. The movies Urban Cowboy and Middle Age Crazy both had footage set in Houston bringing the focus closer to home. The kicker craze hit the nation and Houston was suddenly the place to be, unless you were a Houstonian. In Houston, prices remained high and the influx of illegal aliens increased and began affecting Spring Branch. Both the Astros and the Oilers went Concentrating only on his music, Senior band member Max Mertz blows vibrantly through his horn. The Marching band practiced every day after school.

The band did so every time they took the field. The Markettes traveled to London and marched in an Easter parade and at every choir, drama or orchestra performance, students gave it their all. During the year, students showed more than just pride and spirit, much more. They showed achievements of highest standards, on which they were proud to leave their mark. Memorial students will always pro- duce excellence and outstanding work for all of their lives, it's born in- to the breed. Everything students do, during school or later in life, they'll finish with great care, branded with pride. xi! Live experiments reinforce what students learn in the textbooks.

After hours, good time, party time, freedom or whatever term is applied, began at 3:15 at the sound of the bell. When it rang, students went their own way and said goodbye to teachers, principals and grades, at least until homework started. A high school has a tremendous amount of activities in which students can be involved. School related ac- tivities of every kind can be attended. Football games are the prime social events of the early year. Spirit organizations center their schedules around the season. Band and Markette members started practice before the school year began and came every day after school as well. Cheerleaders also spent their after hours at school, preparing pep rallies. Many students spent their free time at the school as well. Athletes practiced after school every day and practices were also held for musicals and other performances. Clubs offered students the oppor- tunity to become even more involved in the school. A student could truly over-do himself with activities, focus ing all attention towards the weekend. On weekends, we hit the night life: parties, dating, sleep and parties. There were senior parties for the rowdy. Iunior boys calling themselves the Zombies, threw par- ties virtually every week. Several students chose to hold after school jobs at stores and shops. Some students were even said to be study- ing occasionally. Memorial students indulged in every possible activity and there were many from which to choose. Spirit groups, clubs, athletics and school-work were but a few of the ac- tivities students joined in. Many students had private hobbies. One thing is for certain, though, every minute of time after hours was used effectively. Football games bring spirit from all organiza- tions. Students in the cheering section are entertained by Senior Alan Noon. Photo by lim Tomforde. "We're number one" is a common chant in the cheering section at Memorial Football games. Seniors demonstrate their loyalty to the team. Photo by lim Tomforde. 8 O Student Life Frustrated in academics, Senior Rob Harder embraces Iunior Suzanne King to relieve stress.
