Second Time Around On September 10, 1956, two thousand, six hundred and twenty-two students began the long trek along the " Pathway to Excellence and Integrity " as Robert A. Milljkan High School opened its doors for the first time. A dream had been realized; where once there had been nothing but bean fields stood a fine educational institution. Established as the fifth school in the Long Beach Unified School Dis- trict, Millikan met the needs of the G.I. Bill fathers who succumbed to the lure of climate and the aerospace industry. The concerns of Millikan ' s first students were considerably different from those of their successors. They busied themselves with deciding the school colors (blue ' n gold), nam- ing their mascots, (Robbie Millie) organizing the formals for the Aries and the Corydon, and choosing their first Snow Queen for the Christ- mas season. Ram Hi spint was founded that year as football, baseball and basketball all went to CIF. And fashions in ' 56 ranged from wool skirts and sweaters to letterman jackets to bobby SOX. A lot of changes took place in those twenty- five years. 1980 heard students speaking of Reagan instead of Ike Eisenhower, of nuclear power rather than H-bombs, and of Secret Admirers as opposed to Snow Queens. But some things never change. Millikan High con- tinued its tradition of excellence and leadership In academics, sports, music, faculty and activi- ties. Wool skirts and sweaters, lettermen jack- ets and bobby sox were seen on campus once more. Although Millikan ' s silver anniversary saw it ' s ' 71 " baby boom " enrollment of 4200 shrink to 2580, there was no shrinkage in the Ram Hi spirit founded back in ' 56.

Millikan, which opened the identi- cal twenty-five years ago, suffered no such crisis. Both Disneyland and Millikan were fashioned out of farmland. In fact, only thirty years ago, cows wandered across Spring Street to peer into new rancho houses. In those days Disneyland, too, had its share of live animals. Thousands of squirrels, gophers, and weasels romped with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. Disneyland started in the summer of 1955, just before Millikan in September. The park was a totally new idea in amusement parks that creator Walt Disney pursued and developed. When the park first opened, the rides and shows were sim- ple. Some of Its major additions over the years such as the Matterhorn, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Haunted Mansion all added to the park ' s magic. The recent addition of two rollercoaster rides, Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, also added to the excitement. As time passed, both Disneyland and Millikan grew in their own way. Each year brought changes for both, whether it was a change in enrollment at school, or a brand new Christmas parade. Welcome to both Magic Kingdoms! TOP RIGHT: JET-SETTERS — Doug Barkley holds Sharon Lussier snug on the Tomorrowland Rockets The rockets are one of over fifty ndes and attractions in the Magic Kingdom ABOVE RIGHT " NEVER AGAIN " — Second thoughts about that popcorn enter the mind of Paige Werner after a " spin " on the teacups Greg Haines offers some comfort and a more relaxing ride — Space IVIountain ABOVE: TWIST AND SHOUT — Linda Schwimmer admires David Baker ' s muscles as he tries to impress her by making the teacups spin their fastest.

Good Time! " Celebrate! As Millikan became twenty-five years old, McDonalds and the Beach Boys also entered their second quarter century. Kodak Cameras, Thrifty ' s Drug Store, and Hostess Twinkles were fifty years old in 1 980, and KABC talk radio and the Peace Corps celebrated 20th anniver- saries. In 1930, Mrs. Wakefield, owner of Toll House for weary travelers, while experimenting with a favorite cookie recipe, accidentally discovered a new taste sensation — chocolate chip cookies. We celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of America ' s favorite sweet. U.S.C, Veteran ' s Administration, and the Elec- tric Light celebrate their centennial, while the city of Boston blew out 350 candles on its birthday cake. One-hundred fifty years ago, the Morman Church was founded. Fifty years before that, Benedict Arnold was convicted for treason. In the same year, 1780, the city of Angels was established by the Spaniards. Fictional detective James Bond celebrated his thirtieth birthday in 1980, along with Charles Shultz ' " Peanuts " characters. Shultz ' comic strip has been printed in nineteen languages and was one of the most popular comic strips in the world. In the midst of good grades, the hard tests, the victories, the losses, the happy times, the sad moments, we celebrate ... our life, our friends, and our school in this year of anniversaries.

HE ' LL BE OKAY: It ' s depressing — the attempt on President ' s Reagan ' s life. Reagan brings charisma, sparkle, and a keen sense of humor to the seriousness of politics. I liked it when he joked with Mrs. Reagan by saying, " Sorry honey, I forgot to duck. " John Yamashita WHO SHOT J.R.? I think J.R. shot himself. Anybody who really wanted to kill him surely wouldn ' t have missed! Glenn Loughlin ATTENDANCE POLICY: I think the attendance policy makes it difficult for stu- dents absent with valid excuses. Ben Zimmerman TEACHER ONLY PARKING AREAS: When I come for " A " Period, it ' s nice if we kids could park closer. It might do some of the staff good to walk. Laura Ivlarsh ABORTION: So many people are against abortion — they say it ' s murder. I really don ' t think so. A person should have the opportunity to decide if abortion is right for them, and her specific situation. Ruth Berman DOWNTOWN MALL: Although I ' d rather shop at Cerritos, the downtown mall is going to help the area. Matt Brady CAPITAL PUNISHMENT: I believe capital punishment is the best solution for hard core criminals, and I would rather not see tax money wasted on keeping them alive. Robin Baty This country is in definite need of gun control and capital punishment. The laws are so lax, that the criminals get off with easy prison terms the first couple of times and just keep going back to do the same thing . . . The one incident that comes to mind is the tragic and senseless murder of John Lennon. Chapman should be sen- tenced to death. Mark Bottomley SEX AND VIOLENCE: It makes me sick the way everything on T.V. is related to sex. About the only show that doesn ' t exploit women anymore is " Little House on the Prairie. " Nancy Heinhch MUSIC: Punk and Rock ' n ' Roll seemed to be the favorites but coming close was Clas- sical and Jazz. An all-time favorite was Mrs. Farnsworth ' s French albums. The assassination of J.F.K. was tragic, but Lennon was closer to the hearts of our gen- eration. John Lennon will be remembered by all as a great songwriter and a classic man in history. John Tyra IRAN: Our country stands for freedom but our hostages are not free. Through unity, we should do everything in our power to get our people back, even though it may disturb some people if we give in. After all, what does the United n United States stand for?

Lennon was coming home from the recording studio when he was shot several times by a Hawai- ian man named Mark Chapman. Lennon was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. His death came shortly after his return back into recording, where he had just finished putting out a new album called Double Fantasy. John Lennon ' s death brought just as much trauma as the death of Elvis Presley. Millions of fans all over the world gathered together shortly after his death to pay tribute while radio stations played nearly constant Beatle and Lennon music. Maybe his death would bring about changes in the future, but who knows what the rest of his life could have brought us? It ' s a shame . . . KL0S95) Rams Remain Traditional A survey of one-hundred students resulted in the following preferences and advice: If you are ever wondering where to go on a date, first try dinner at popular: 1 .

" For many kids, high school was the first time when paychecks started coming in. Millikan stu- dents made sure they had a piece of the job mar- ket. With hamburgers over $1.00, gasoline at $1.25 a gallon, movies at about $3.00, and con- certs ranging from $10.00 to $25.00, bucks melted away quickly. Besides the usual assortment of traditional jobs, such as fast-food workers, there was also a large group of unusual jobs held by Millikan stu- dents. Ticket taker Daryl Friedman and usher Kathy Ander were employed at the Long Beach Convention Center, while Bernice Conley helped keep personnel records at Veteran ' s Hospital. Wendy Rosenstein earned money as a song leader at her temple, Lisa Fisher helped check credit for a health spa, and George Gjersvold charmed sporting goods customers. 16 Activities Jobs ABOVE WATCH OUT WOLF- MAN JACK — Sophomore disc jockey, Alfred McComber, rocks to a Christian beat everyday after school at radio station KFRN-AM in Long Beach.

All during the night they erected booths and constructed floats. By morning the floats blossomed — a sen- ior jack-in-the-box, a junior clown, a freshman fat lady, and a prize winning junior elephant. By 8:00 A.M., the Homecoming circus was ready. From 11:15, students and alumni strolled around the quad under hot and sunny skies. Booths sold everything from caramel apples to Devo glasses, with DECA ' s sausages winning the prize for the best booth. After the band Premonition rocked out in the quad, the advance dance group climbed into the ring to do a clown act, which was followed by alumni Dana Daniels and Cheryl Boone per- forming a magic show. There were contests throughout the day, with Lisa Whitten and Cindy Stutzman winning the best costume award for their performing horse, and Chris Brown winning the Mr. Masculine Muscles contest. At the rally afterwards, the band and pep groups performed, and Lance Skohn- berg from Millikan ' s first graduation class spoke to the crowd. Activities Homecoming 19 Kelly Carousels to Crown With a packed stadium cheering, a giant car- ousel holding the Homecoming court and escorts made its way around the football track on a cool October evening just before the Compton game. The party emerged to stand in front of the throne as the band played a greeting and the ROTC stood at attention. The crowd hushed, and then Mr. Zimmermann introduced the 1978 Homecoming queen Suzie Stutzman to crown the new queen — Kelly Evans. The five-foot-five-inch, brown-haired Queen led a busy life dividing her time between waitressing at The Gallery, performing as a cheerleader, and being a best friend and confidante to her twin sis- ter Kathy. " Lots of people can ' t tell Kathy and me apart, " said Kelly, " even though we wear different clothes. We ' ve had lots of fun confusing people over the years. " It must have been especially con- fusing for diners at The Gallery, since both girls worked there.

Millikan students seemed to think so. Uni- sex campus styles ranged from ten gallon hats like Dave " Tex " Robeson ' s, to the Devo shades sold by Key Club at Homecoming. More refined tastes were exhibited by Muppet-happy RAMS such as Laura Marsh, who admired Miss Piggy ' s fluffy feather boas. Another popular fad was displayed by students who wore Lacoste alligator shirts, belts, and socks. Stuffed alligators seeking sweet revenge were viewed in shop windows wearing T-shirts with human figures sewn on them. Females bedecked themselves in everything from high-buttoned, bow-tied and old-fashioned lace collars to kilty plaid skirts and topsider shoes. Flannel and wool were also popularfashion mate- rials, and hand-knit sweaters kept students warm on cool winter nights. Last year ' s French knots and Bo Derek braids returned to top it all off, as well as sexy, short " punk " haircuts, but often these were covered with cowboy hats to match the suede fringe jack- ets and calf-high western-style boots. It wasn ' t at all uncommon for a student like Dante Carag to picture himself riding off into the sunset in the midst of an algebra lesson.

The cost of everyone ' s favorite toy — a car — went up-up-up, while the size of the car went down-down-down. Students who wanted to move beyond hiking boots and bikes to the joys of the freeway had bleak prospects. Buy gas guzzling oldie cheapie which drank gasoline by just sitting in the garage, or work part- time as bank president and buy a new sardine can size E, J, or K car for around seven thousand dol- lars? Headlines in the Newspapers and cover sto- ries in news magazines about the car crisis in America only darkened the picture. Many won- dered, in fact, if the big three auto companies in America would survive. Chrysler lost two billion dollars and was saved for the time being by a 1 .5 billion loan from the government. Ford lost the same amount with GM not far behind. During 1980, 1643 American car dealerships went out of business. The facts were simple; thirty percent of the U.S. market was absorbed by foreign car makers. The Detroit 1981 cars, however, demonstrated that the industry had learned some hard lessons. Mileage and durability were the twin gods of the new little cars rolling off the assembly lines. To most students, the joy of owning one of Detroit ' s down-sized cars would have to wait until they hit the used car market. Those big old cars with those big old appetites would have to serve. The only consolation was that they were much more comfortable for triple dating and drive-in theaters. BELOW: EAT, SLEEP, STUDY . . .

" These were some of the comments of Head Flag Girl Kathy Evans about the viewers ladders the pepsters used to have. The ladders have been a traditional part of the pepsters at games, but new rules required them to be replaced by wooden boxes. During pre-sea- son, they had nothing and were forced to settle for the curb. Head song girl Ginny Thompson explained, " It ' s awfully hard to cheer during a game when you can ' t see what ' s going on. " The thirteen member squad, under the. supervi- sion of Mr. Forrest Zimmerman, underwent a series of changes and new ideas. They acquired plastic pom-poms instead of crepe paper ones, and brighter flags to accent yellow night uniforms. A majorette was added to the pepster squad. Tracy Trampush twirled with the band at half- time, but laid aside her baton during the game and performed cheers with the others. For the first time since they started going to cheer camp, the song girls took third place in a competition involving over five-hundred groups.

It took a week to paint the forty-five-yard poster for the Lakewood football game, and it took a rhym- ing dictionary to come up with such gems as — " Lakewood ain ' t cool When Rams are in the pool, " Or " Wilson will scram When mighty Rams jam.

" Being in Kidettes was more than what people saw during rallies and halftime shows. " Kidette practice meant 7:30 a.m. goose bumps, morning fog, hair curlers, and cold legs, " said Stacey Bos. In addition to the morning practice there were also evening practices, the night before per- formances, that lasted up to three hours. But there was more to Kidettes than practice. They continued the tradition of football secrets. " Every Wednesday night I looked " forward to stay- ing up past midnight and baking for my secret because I was usually rewarded with a touch- down, " said Teresa Ceja. Something new for Kidettes this year was drill team camp.

The frosh had arrived. Their arrival was the result of a new pilot pro- gram designed and developed by Newcomb par- ents called Cadre 9, which enabled " graduates " of the Newcomb A-One program to go directly to Millikan instead of spending their ninth grade year at Marshall. Formerly, Newcomb students who opted not to attend Marshall for seventh, eighth, and ninth grades had to make two transitions — from Newcomb to Marshall and from Marshall to Millikan. At first, some people were skeptical about the idea of a freshman class, but once the idea became a reality, the hostility melted. The staff and administration did their best to make the freshmen ' s welcome warm. Sophomores were particularly happy about the new arrivals, since their presence meant that soph jokes ' popularity would fade in favor of frosh jokes. The upperclassmen-and-women didn ' t seem to mind them, either. " Freshmen? I hardly ever see any, there are so few of them, " com- mented junior Dave Snyder. " Except of course when I happen to trip over one. " As for the frosh themselves, they were quick to adjust to Ram life. When it came to school activi- ties, they often showed more enthusiasm and good old-fashioned Ram Hi spirit than older Rams. " I like it, I guess, " offered Laura Brown. " It ' s tougher than what I ' m used to, but then, that ' s what makes it high school.

We then headed out to a large field where seven other teams joined us in a free-for-all game of Tasmanian Kickball.

" That was Kit Harder ' s reaction to Ronald Reag- an ' s landslide victory in the 1980 presidential election. It was about 5:00 when NBC broke the news story that Reagan had been elected. President Carter was reported to have wept upon hearing the news; John Anderson was more restrained. Millikan student ' s reactions ranged from Jon Finstuen ' s Great! to Julie Flynn ' s expletive deleted. Actually there was much to celebrate in 1 980 ... if you were a Republican. Not only did the mighty elephant capture the White House but for the first time since 1 952 the GOP held a majority in the Senate. Local California politicians and favorites experienced gains and losses. Jerry Brown and Edward Kennedy were swept away in the national move to the right but Congressman Daniel Lundgren and Senator Alan Cranston fared well. Some students were unimpressed with the sweeping changes in national politics. Many Millikan students were more interested in Julie Hasquet ' sbid for A.S.B. Secretary than the Moral Majority ' s affect on the election. Yet there were those students like Bob Living- stone who took the issues and concerns seri- ously. Concerned for the country Bob remarked; " Anything is better than Carter — I think. " As the school year came to a close President Reagan was forging his " New Beginning.

If on the night of February 5th, one was dis- turbed by piercing screams and earringing whis- tles, he could probably assume it was coming from the Girls ' Gym, the location of the third annual Mr, Ram Pageant. A dozen clubs plus hundreds of spectators gathered to cheer their representatives and or favorites. The first visual delight was the segment where contestants strolled down the ramp in tuxedos to score points for their poise and stature. A couple of blown kisses by the contestants helped break the formality. Talent among the twelve contestants presented a wide variety including juggling by Joe Polizzi, skateboarding by Brian De Haven, and disco dancing by Chris Brown. Kurtis Ellort enter- tained the audience with his version of a ballet act, and Richard Laspesa did a flag routine good enough to make pepsters. There was also a strange person wearing 1940 ' s clothes that sung about how ugly he was. The last, loudest segment came about with the swim suit competition and muscle flex. The baby- oil covered contestants all did their best to show off the biceps, triceps, and pectorals, in a front pose, back pose, side pose, and the " give it your best shot " pose. After the roars subsided, all that was left was the final questioning and judging. The three final- ists, Richard Laspesa, Chris Brown, and Ken Hamilton were all questioned by Master of Cere- monies Mr. Radford.

Students pondered over these questi ons as the Student Council sponsored three separate dress up days during the first semester. Their first scheduled " day " was one of hats — cowboy, army, hard, or just plain old hats. The sec- ond event dated back thirty years to the 1 950 ' s. Pony tails and leather jackets were common as the pep- sters and cheerleaders did routines to oldies such as " Rock Around the Clock. " The final dress up revisited the 1 960 ' s with hippies, peace makers and war veter- ans. Faking their way through the evening. Masters of Ceremonies Mark Calkins and Randy Lemmerman held the Talent Show together with their ad-libbing talents. Technical difficulties slowed down the show, but Mark and Randy did their best to keep it running smoothly. A wide variety of music was heard including classi- cal piano solos by Kim Amberia and Janet Turner, a Beatles tune by Madeline Lundgren, a Led Zeppelin Guitar Solo by Doug Barkley, and a mellow duet by Rachel Davis and Rossi Humphrey.

Celebrate Sporlsl A C Division " J strong Finish Amazes Coacii After what seemed to be a pessimistic look at the season by Head Coach Dick DeHaven, the Rams Varsity football team rallied to win second in Moore League. Defensive Line Coach Carl Halsted commented, " The 1980 defensive team has reached goals beyond anything I ever expected. They have turned in some outstanding efforts during the season. " During pre-season, the Rams ended with a record of two wins and one loss. In their first game against Newport Harbor, the offensive unit, lead by Linemen Jon Tyra, Captain Chris Brown, Jim Evans, John Trampush, and Captains Rob Leupp and Ken Hamilton helped the team gain 320 yards on the ground alone, which lifted them to a 14-7 victory. In a tough, physical game against Warren, James Inglemon returned the opening kickoff 95 yards which started the Rams rolling to another 14-7 victory. The only pre-season loss was against Edison, a team rated second in the nation. Five fumbles by the Rams caused a disappointing 35-1 4 defeat. The first Moore League game was against Wil- son, but failure to capitalize on numerous scoring opportunities caused them to accept a 21-14 loss. Offensively the Rams outgained the Bruins 334 to 240 yards. On Homecoming night, Receiver Jon Finstuen took a hand off from Bryon Griffin, and threw a 42 yard reverse pass to Andrew Massey, which was just one touchdown during a busy night. The Rams beat the Tarbabes by a score of 1 4-6. For the fifth year in a row, the Rams won the Donice Hamilton Trophy in the game against Lakewood where Running Back Courtney Griffin rushed for three touchdowns in a 28-1 6 victory. In Millikan ' s next game against Jordan, hard Hjshing by Tackle John Trampush and Defen- sive End Jim Evans shut-out the Panthers 22-0. The last game was against the Poly Jackrab- bits. The Jackrabbits won 28-14, but the loss did not keep the Rams from earning a place in the C.I.F. playoffs.

The opening round was against Oxnard in Oxnard, and the team rolled easily past them with free safety, Mark Bottomley, nose guard, Mark Jackson, linebackers, Marcus Lewis and Mike Gardner, and strong safeties, Brian DeHaven, Don Pinkston, and Chris Rhoades holding Oxnard to only 1 4 points in a 35-1 4 victory. The victory moved the team into the quarter- finals, and into a game against Muir. Coach Carl Halsted commented, " I never expected to do very well, let alone come as far as we did. The Muir game was an exceptional effort by the whole team. " Millikan won the game in a close 22-21 decision, which helped send them into the semi- finals. For the first time all season, Mike Douglas started as quarterback for the Rams. Darrell Jen- kins, Jon Finstuen, and Courtney Griffin all scored touchdowns for the Rams. But four turn- overs by Millikan gave Santa Barbara numerous scoring opportunities, and Millikan was forced to accept a disappointing 26-20 loss.

Champs Provide Prospects for ' 81 After losing two out of three pre-season games, the junior varsity team fought back undefeated during the regular season and won the Moore League title. Under the coaching of Tom Morgan and assistant coach Dave Shawver, the team ended up the season with a 4-2 record. The two losses were a 7-0 loss to Marina, and a disappointing loss against Edison, whose team consisted of nearly all the same players whom had beaten the varsity team the night before. Dur- ing the regular season, the squad only had to play two games because of a forfeit by Wilson. The offense, under the leadership of most valu- able player Tony Felicione, consisted of running backs Mike Ozeretny and Dexter Grooms, and receivers Troy Haines, Tony Brown, and John Givli. Assisted by center Greg Vock, tackles Steve Panagos, and Steve Tomlin, and guards Rick Sessoyeff and Stewart Swanson, the offense gathered up forty-eight points in their three league games. The defense, headed by tackle James Jimi- nez, linebacker Milton Joeseph, and secondary members Garfield Vassel, and Weasel William- son, held Wilson, Lakewood, and Jordan to a combined total of only six points. Described by varsity coach DeHaven as " the finest group of sophomore athletes in years, " the sophomore team finished with a winning record of 6-3 and a tie for first place in Moore League. Led by running backs, Mark Jones, and a fine line consisting of Eric Springer, Scott Miller, Rocky Reed, Brian Quinan, Eric Tautolo, and Vince Noice, the offense provided many last min- ute thrills such as its brilliant come-from-behind, 44-21 victory over Lakewood. The hard hitting defense led by Kevin Thomas, Jeff Kaiser, Alex Dixon, Franklin Jenkins, Kevin Durr, John Conroy, and Ira Hartsock, was the key to several victories.

Unfortunately, the Rams lost in the quar- terfinals to the team that went on to become C.I.F. champs, Newport Harbor. After a tough loss to Wilson and a second place finish in the Moore League, Wilson, Hacienda Heights came to town for the first round of the playoffs. With great clutch-play by Ross Cowan, Ernie Campbell, Matt Lawler, and Co-captain Mark Jury, the tankmen won it 12-10. In round two, the Buena Park Coyotes came to the natatorium with heads held high but left with drowned spihts as the tankmen dunked them 12- 8. Mark Jury again reigned as high scorer. The playoffs looked like an impossible dream early in the season as the aquajocks suffered two tough losses to Los Amigos and Los Alamitos. However, with strong play by high scorer, Co- captain, all C.I.F., and First Team, All-League selection Mike Bruffey, the Rams won seventeen of the next twenty-one games. In addition to Bruffey, First Team, All-League selections were Matt Lawler, Ross Cowan, and Mark Jury. Mike Perry was voted to the Second Team; and Steve Frydman, Tim Freeman, Ernie Campbell, and Pete Murray received Honorable f ention. The Rams were also helped by great play off the bench from juniors Steve Lawler and KirkHilllar. Led by team Captain Tom Lind, MVP Doug Parker, and high-scorer Mark Johnson, the JV team strolled to a third place finish after disap- pointing losses to Lakewood and Wilson. Sophomores ended a successful season with a big win over Poly which resulted in a first place finish. Consistent play by MVP Joel Yamasaki and Captain Jeff Koza contributed to the team ' s great play.

The season came down to one giant duel meet. Lakewood and Millikan were both 3-0 and first place awaited at the finish line. After a gruesome race, the Ram Hi harriers unfortunately were defeated. The Varsity team had only one returning mem- ber. Junior Steve White. Even in a rebuilding year the Cross-Country team remained in contention by placing second in Moore League and making the preliminary meet of C.I.F. Despite racing with two Juniors, Steve White and Mike Smith, and two Sophomores, Rick Battenfield and John Redner in the top seven, the Varsity team did fairly well this season. Other hardships included injuries and illnesses to several key runners; yet the harriers pulled through. The Ram runners were led by All-League, All- City selections White and Battenfield. Other Var- sity runners included John Griff, Jim Ellington, John Redner, Jeff Hooker, Mike Smith, and Steve Yramategui. Close competition best described the Junior Varsity paced by Sophomores Steve Golden and Dan Black. Others close behind and making up the rest of the team included Seniors John Clare, Dave Dalton, and Sophomores Ian IMcFadyen and RickAcosta.

Ten-year varsity basketball coach Bill Odell replied, " By making the same mistakes at the wrong time more than once. " However on the domestic side Coach Odell ' s wife Gail com- mented, " Kl spite of the statistics we felt we had a winning season. It was the most united, hard- working, and devoted team in a long time. " Coach Odell supported his wife ' s comments adding, " The way the team came back to play against the eventual CIF champs. Poly, after a heartbreaking overtime loss to Lakewood, showed the players emotional and mental matu- rity. " The Cagers, assisted by assistant coach Jim Seida, manager Jeff Black, and statisticians Kathy Brick, Denise Hodson, Margaret Pott, and Joanna Siragusa, played on a seesaw all season. The final record of ten wins and thirteen losses appeared to be a downfall; it seemed that the taste of victory was just beyond a single free throw. The rookies proved they could handle the big league, as juniors Brian Dawson and Steve White matched performances with veterans Matt Brady, Rich Carreiro, and Tim Keckeisen. Uni- form play by Steve kept the Rams on the score- board while Brian dominated the rebounding contest. Ultimately, seniors Rich and Matt proved most vital as they were named All-Moore League and Millikan ' s co-MVPs. With such achievements as Brady ' s record-ranking seven dunks in the sea- son and Carreiro ' s leading free-throw percent- age of 82.4 including a streak of twenty-two in a row, accorded honors were appropriate. Brian Dawson was also named Honorable Mention All-League. At the Anaheim tournament Brady and Dawson share All-Tournament hon- ors. In the beginning of December at the Bishop Amat Tournament, Brady once again received All-Tournament.

How can a team improve on a year of a 1 6-1 record, a league championship, and a trip to the GIF playoffs? Simple — do it two years in a row, and that ' s exactly what the Ram golf team set out to do. The onlyi possible roadblock to the first consec- utive league crowns since 1969 was that only Bob Livingstone and Marty Brown had any pre- vious varsity experience. Coach Jim Haddy didn ' t agree, however, saying " This team could be one of the best I ' ve ever coached ... If these kids practice, they ' ll have a fine season, experi- ence or not. " Whatever the team lacked in experience, it made up with optimism. " At this time last year we were supposed to finish second or even third, " said Bob Livingstone, " Wilson was expected to clobber us then, too, but we beat them. You never know, lightning may strike twice. " Bob Snedden was also enthusiastic; " Our J.V. team won league last year, so were not really that low in experi- ence. " If a team could win matches with spirit alone, the golf team could be state champions, but they could settle for a repeat of last year. t ABOVE: VARSITY — Bryan Wilson, Bob Snedden, Mike Encson, Coach Haddy, Marty Brown, Mike Shea, Bob Livingstone, JUNIOR VARSITY — FRONT ROW: Coach Haddy, Dave Schultz, Laune Snedden, Mike Shedd, SECOND ROW: Mike Keyes, Gordon Gregg, Jon Redman.

Varsity Coach Dave Radford instituted these early workouts in order to enable the young team to overcome its tough Poly and Wilson oppo- nents, its only losses during the previous season. Positive results were noticeable as the team began league play. Starting as the number-one varsity player for the second year, Junior John Bartos led in num- ber of victories, adding to his amazing 38-2 com- piled from his sophomore year. Juniors Russ Kohn and Ken Ostrow, the only other returning Varsity members, were able to win crucial games in both singles and doubles. New members included Carl Holm, Marty Chlu, and the lone sophomore, Ron Liboon.

On Top — Once Again A fantastic record of nine Moore League cham- pionships in ten years was Coach Lillenberg ' s record going into the season and they added a tenth by the end of the year. Gary Mizumoto, the team ' s leading wrestler, had a 51-1 regular sea- son record and a 102-10 overall career record. He blazed through the Moore League Champion- ships, CIF and State Championships winning all three divisions in the 122 pound weight class. In addition, he was voted all-CIF and all-state in both his junior and senior years. But Gary was not the only stand-out. Joel Kokis, wrestling in the 107 pound weight class, won the Moore League Championships, placed third in CIF, and fifth in the state. Joel also held the school record for most career wins with an overwhelming 122. Millikan produced league champion grapplers in four other weight classes. Sophomore Mike Karahaljos won in the 100 pound weight class, Rick Gross, a junior, won the 114 pound weight class, Tim Banhidy won the 135 pound weight class, and Jeff Beouy won the 147 pound weight class. Banhidy and Beouy, along with Kokis and Mizumoto represented Millikan in the CIF cham- pionships. Led by obviously outstanding individual mem- bers, the matmen had a dual match record of 19- 3. The three losses came at the hands of CIF and State Champion Sunset Hills, Sunset League Champions Fountain Valley, and a strong West- minster team, a loss the Rams avenged later in the year.

The ten-inning marathon, was typical ot Coach Ardie Boyd ' s expectations for 1981 . The two-and-one-half hour time limit finally ran out on a 3-3 decision. Strong pitching should be the Rams ' trademark with three returning starters. All-league performer Greg Konishi was again expected to be a domi- nant force in Moore League. Senior Greg Vieyra, who has been hampered by arm trouble in the past year, would also contribute to the Ram ' s fine pitching. Another senior, Joe Boyd, has been the most consistant pitcher for the Rams at press time. Defense always made the pitchers look good, and the Rams had a strong infield to back up their pitching. Three-year-varsity letterman Rick Hop- kins and second baseman Brett Gordon made for a strong combination up the middle. Sopho- more John Correa at third base and junior Dean Groves at first base completed the Ram infield. Sophomore catcher Steve Brodie filled a big question mark in the line up providing the team with a solid, dependable, backstop. Leading what appeared to be a scrappy offen- sive unit was Rick Hopkins, Brett Gordon, and Daryl King. Moore League appeared to be a very close race and the Rams definitely expect to end up on the top of the pile or at least clinch a spot in C.I.F.

Rams were off to a good start with a 6-1 record at press time. The young team used strong pitch- ing and timely hitting as keys to their success. Sluggers were Ken Austin, Kevin Thomas, David Schriver, Tim Grayston, and Mike Con- nell. Pitchers included Steve Stagnaro, Jim Coppley, Bob Hough, Kevin Whittaker, and Bob Weaver. WHAT scouts, A HIT — Millikan star Rick Hopkins, a heavyweight with the bat and with college ups his batting percentage a notch against Banning in a early pre-season loss. Hopkins — A Hit! Baseball excellence ran in the family of senior star Rick Hopkins. To Rick, a third-year varsity letterman, baseball had always been a part of life for him as well as for his father and brother. Rick ' s father played professional baseball for the Boston Red Sox. His brother Nick played four years for Long Beach State University, and was drafted and signed by the San Diego Padres. Unfortunately he didn ' t make it to the big leagues. A future playing either shortstop or third base, looked bright for Rick who received scholarship offers from many of the top colleges in the nation.

Coaches expressed hopes for the Varsity Medley Relay which consisted of Mary Surane, Julie Testa, Judy Sherlock, and Jenni McHugh, and J V Free Relay consisting of Mary Wurzburg, Mau- reen Crane, Holly Ditzler, and Michelle Wrenn. New suits and sweatshirts marked the Varsity girl swimmers.

Starting pre-season play with a tie in Buena Park and wins in the Torrance Tournament, Var- sity was, hopefully, on the road to CIF. " We had a few upsets, but if we work hard enough — we ' ll be in the play offs, " said Gretchen Holm. The team was young with only four returning players, but the season started off well regardless. " We play well together, even though nearly everyone is new to Varsity, " said Dana Dun- woody. " The hardest position out there is on the bench, not everyone can be a star all of the time, " said Diane Ethridge. However, in the Torrance Tournament there were some stars.

Celebrate Academics! Division 101 New Ass ' t. Principal — Globe Trotting Mrs. James " It ' s a small world after all, " so said the song, and new Assistant Principal Margaret James traveled over most of it. She visited Denmark, Singapore, Japan, Bangkok, China, Russia, Sweden, Norway, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Portugal, Spain, Mexico, Canada, Africa, Germany, Italy, Anaheim and Kookabonga! Though a real " woman of the world, " Mrs. James kept a smile and trusting attitude toward life. She believed that " people can communicate through their feelings. " On her many trips, she made friends through the language of emotions rather than a ver- bal language. A Russian family gave her hostile glances until she showed her delight in their baby, and made it giggle. The ice was broken, and the family began to laugh and introduce themselves. In Africa, Mrs. James smiled warmly at a native child, and in return, he presented her with a flower he found growing along the road. Mrs. James attended Lakeview High in Chicago, Illinois, and Northwestern Univer- sity where she was a science major. She came to Millikan after eleven years at Lake- wood High. Besides traveling, her interests included music, photography, reading and writing. Susan Mashiyama ' 81 NEW WHEELS — Kevin Mat- thews shows Mrs. James a new way to travel across the quad.

He was proud that in the last five years minority enrollment increased from six percent of the student body to twenty-nine per- cent, with fewer problems than any other school in the district. Four percent increase this year was largely due to influx of Asian and Chicano students. The only new educational pro- gram instigated during second semester was a special academy collection of senior students throughout the district who still had to pass the P.A.R. test in order to graduate. This group of thirty congregated at Millikan for intensive study in math and read- ing with specialists working one- on-one with them. Mr. DuBois also revised the awards program for students hon- ored with the Medal of Merit. Rather than present these at the regular awards program, they were presented at a special merit banquet — all part of Mr. DuBois ' effort to stress the importance of academic achievement.

" What she meant was that the patient was suffering from a hernia around his belly-button. To most people, the nurse ' s terminology made no sense whatsoever. But to Ms. Fotion, it was as normal as slang was to most Rams. Sometimes her medical jargon frightened a student right out of her office. Once Ms. Fotion told a student that she had a mild case of tra- cheopharyngitis. Before she could define the term as a sore throat, the student leaped over her chair and had to be treated for a sprained knee as well. The nurse somehow managed to see up to one hundred and twenty-five students a day — about twelve thousand a year. They staggered into her office with everything from headaches to hepatitis. And although Ms. Fotion treated many complicated cases, students didn ' t have to worry — she was still able to cure the good or common cold. Cheryl Rosenstein ' 81 104 Academics Counselors and Special Services i Testy, Testy The rest of Ramhi might have been whooping it up in celebration of its twenty-fifth anniversary, but for the folks in the counseling office, it was business as usual. There were a few differences. Helen Frances, a member of the counseling staff since 1965, retired and was replaced by David Kushner, a veteran counselor from Marshall Junior High. Mrs. Telles, an instructor in the ESL program, added part-time counseling to her list of responsi- bilities. Everyone on the counseling staff became more involved with the new attendance policy, as they attempted to, deal with excessive absenteeism in a nonpunitive manner. They also suffered some- what under the extra burden of red tape in con- nection with state-required proficiency testing programs. In spite of it all, the counseling staff managed to grin and bear it — even in the face of a storm of students who entered at the beginning of the school year without transcripts. Meanwhile, things in the Special Education Department went full steam ahead. They too had Elmer Alexander Special Education Richard Gow Special Education Paul Meckna Aid Center Shah Oretskin Aid Center Glen Simpson Special Education Paul Singleton Aid Center Kathleen Sulack Special Education Virginia Wisniewaki Special Education come a long way in twenty-five years. In addition to classroom work, students participated in such extra-curricular activities as a bowling club, cook- ing class, horticulture, hospital aid, and even a carwash program in which students were paid by the school district to wash driver training and staff vehicles. " Mainly, the idea is to mainstream these kids into normal situations, rather than to confine them to the classroom, " explained Special Education instructor Mr. Simpson, " In this respect we ' ve made quite a bit of progress. We now have one- third of Special Education kids enrolled and par- ticipating in regular classes. " Academics Counselors and Special Services 105 Teachers Turn Into Authors Because of recent budget cuts, the English department had to compromise. The whole department had larger classes and used older films and textbooks. However, the department did acquire some new equipment and three new teachers. Mrs. Bernice Whiteleather came from Poly High School and was head of the Speech department. Mr. James Benjamin taught ninth and tenth grade English, and Miss Shari Oretskin worked in the Aid Center as a reading specialist. Student aide AdrJanne Abels helped in tenth grade Eng- lish during the day. Several teachers worked outside the school for the community. Mr. Kurtenbach was the Presi- dent of the English Council of Long Beach, and Mr. Monaghan was on the Board of Directors. Some English teachers joined the ranks of pro- fessional writers. Dalton Fogle, candidate for his PhD, published a lengthy study on the use of Art and Poetry in Psychology. Norman Odom had articles published in Professional Photographer and Western Photographer.

Mr. Hollis has written newspaper features, a short story in the Teacher ' s Journal, and a short play for Scope. Instituted last year, the English as a Second Language program underwent few changes. The E.S.L. program was not a bilingual program, but all the classes focused on English, so the stu- dents could be prepared to move into regular classes. Each student in the program was given two E.S.L. classes and the rest regular classes. There were fewer students than last year, with mostly returning students plus some sophomores. The time it took for students to mainstream into the regular program varied. Ten of them already made it into the regular program. Each teacher in the E.S.L. program was responsible for a different level of teaching. Mrs. Lois Pederson, who started last year, worked with the Non-English speaking students. Mrs. Telles and Mrs. Castorna worked with the lim- ited English speaking students, and Mr. Lipiz- worked with the advanced students. Mrs. Katie Galindoworked in the Aid Center, and was head of the E.S.L. Aide Program. On Christmas, teachers sponsored a cultural day, where the students brought food and per- formed dances from their native country. They also had a parent night, where parents and family came and visited the teachers and classrooms.

Mr. Lobliner grew up in Lakewood and attended Long Beach City College before gradu- ating from Stanford University. His only other teaching post was at Capistrano Valley High School in Mission Viejo. Mr. Lobliner believed that the metric system was superior to all others, and only gave meas- urements in metric. Students liked the " Mad Metricator. " He said, " I feel switching to the metric system is essential so that the United States can keep up with the rest of the world. " Some of Mr. Lobliner ' s hobbies included ten- nis, hiking, teaching a math class at Long Beach City College night school, and raising his two one-year-old twins. Mr. Lobliner was 1 .74 meters tall and weighed 75 kilos. HEATED DISCUSSION: Chemistry teacher Mr. Lobliner and Bob Weaver experiment with heated sulfuric acid during sec- ond period class Compounding New Staff In September, students were startled to dis- cover a new man behind the Chemistry desk and another in the Physics lab. Mr. Lobliner replaced Mr. Gunning who was on leave and Mr. Huttenhoff took over from Mr. Wolfe who went back to college. Chemistry students were fortunate to have a speaker in November, Bill Baker, a student at Pur- due University. He talked to Chemistry students about nuclear energy and arranged to send several students on a tour of the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant during Christmas vacation. The Art staff only had four teachers, two of which shared departments. Last year there were six. Students drew, painted, and made pottery, and prepared works of art all year to get ready for the Open House Art Show near the end of the year. Honored for outstanding achievement were Caria St. Lawrent for Science and Dan O ' Hare for Art, the year ' s first Students of the Quarter.

The department developed a computer system under the direction ot Mr. Lynn Colburn. Called the word processing skills center, students were able to increase their knowledge in the computer- oriented business world. The computers allowed students to make corrections on the computer instead ot having to re-type. In addition, some of the typing classes received new self-correcting electric typewriters. The Math Department also made advances in the computer field. The Computer Programming class, taught by Mr. Jim Howard, gained in pop- ularity. Due to the marketable skills that were learned, several students secured extra income writing programs with just one year of experience. In its tradit ion of producing fine students, out- standing students in the Math Department were Eric Simone, John Richenbach, Ron Herman, and Deirdre McClure.

" This was the motto, of dance instructor Fanny Daly. When required to take a dance cla ss for her physical education major at the University of Utah, she fell in love with all aspects of dancing. She par- ticipated in advanced dance, performed some, and taught classes to kids and adults at the Y.W.C.A. A broken leg from a ski injury ended her hopes for a professional dance career. Mrs. Daly taught at Millikan for eleven years. She was married but had no children. Her children were her students with whom she became close with by working late hours together and shahng talents. She spoke well of the people she considers her second family. " The dancers are enthusiatic tal- ented, and hard working. I couldn ' t ask for anything more. They are terrific people to work with.

Dressed in typical dancin ' attire — plastic pants, multi-colored leg warmers, scarves, sweats, and T-shirts — in addition to the manda- tory tights, leotards and dirty feet — the forty-one dancers began their plies in earnest early in the year. They performed " Be a Clown, " choreographed by Tony Moss at Homecoming and also put together a segment for the Winter Holiday Con- cert. When they weren ' t preparing for a perform- ance, the dancers worked out. Including master dance classes taught by professional dancers, an all day workshop at State College, and, of course, " Daly " work outs in class. But most motivation came from the anticipation of the annual dance concert in April. Few Rams realized the tremendous amount of time and effort spent in preparation. Choreographed entirely by the students, the concert began to take shape sometime before April. Elected directors Denise Thompson and Mark Calkins along with Mrs. Daly helped hold the whole production together. Dancers spent four hours each week practic- ing. They sweated through rehearsals from as early as seven A.M. to as late as seven P.M. every school day. Shari Snyder commented, " When it ' s concert time, you live at the school. " Was it all worth it? As Mrs. Daly put it, in the form of a favorite quote, " When love and skill work together, expect a miracle.

Top Twirler Did you think it was hard to twirl batons while jumping, spinning, and marching? For Junior Tracy Trampush, Millikan Majorette, these things seemed routine. Tracy had twirled for ten years, first start- ing with a friend, then continuing with private lessons. She competed in over a hundred solo competitions over seven years, including three years of parade twirling. She partici- pated in state, regional, and national contests capturing fourth place in the state and sec- ond in the regionals in 1 979. In competition, Tracy performed against fifteen to two-hundred girls in the advanced group. She used both marching music and popular music and also designed her own costumes for the dressmaker. Tracy ' s future plans include the possibility of a career as a teacher and judge of major- ettes. Performing wasn ' t all applause. Tracy had suffered at one time or another broken teeth, split fingers, and black eyes as the baton went astray in practice.

Dan gave the band a Trojan-like marching style and directed such popular songs as, " Tusk, " " Heartache Tonight, " " Give It All You Got, " " Last Dance, " and " Another One Bites the Dust. " Head banner girl, Wendy Spohn, led banner through many early morning rehearsals and half- time show performances. She and the seven other girls made and painted new banners, replacing the traditional block letters with script lettering. Led by heads Kelly Singleton and assistant heads, Verlinda Yazzie and Laurie Tsurada, Pennant performed in noon rallies, including Sophomore Orientation in which they rocked out with Billy Joel ' s, " It ' s Still Rock n ' Roll To Me.

This action was pending appeal by the Coalition for Highway Safety and other groups concerned with insuring proper training for all beginning drivers. This action concerned the General Studies Depart- ment which remained constant, with longtime teacher Harold Stromberg as head. Two of the department ' s students that received one hundred on their D.M.V. Road Test, a sel- dom-given mark, were Tom Hughes and Greg Houser. Donna Buonadonna was the outstand- ing student of the first quarter. The Weight Training Class proved popular among General Physical Education students. New weights were added to replace some of the aging equipment. Juniors and Seniors were allowed the option of choosing from a wide variety of team sports, such as soccer and volleyball. In addition, many stu- dents opted to compete in tennis tournaments, with Ms. Horowitt giving awards to the top rac- quetmen. Kathy Clark General P.E.

Harold Houston was so dedicated to creating a magnificent luncheon that sometimes he came to school at 6:00 a.m. Everything was done by students which included fig- uring out the cost of the food needed to cooking it. Stu- dents planned and prepared the meals and shopped to buy groceries. Senior Ken Hamilton designed and pre- pared menu cards for each dinner in his Graphic Arts class. Local Toyota and Dodge dealerships donated a truck and a car to Millikan ' s Auto Shop. Although there were no changes in faculty, the Industrial Education Depart- ment, with James Denison as Department Head, main- tained their auto shop occupational programs, under the supervision of Guy Righter, which for the past three years has enabled students to work at an appren- ticeship level at local garages.

A. Derivas told his students that he was a world traveler, he wasn ' t exaggerating. Mr. Derivas, an experienced sailor, took a leave of absence from teaching in 1973 and 1974 to take a trip around the world in a custom-made thirty-two foot yacht. His wife, daughter, and her friend were his only crew mem- bers during the long voyage, which followed a route across the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean, continuing through the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic, and finally arriving at his home port of Long Beach. Throughout the entire trip, Mr. Derivas and his tiny crew encountered only two major storms — one in the Mediterra- nean and a slight hurricane off the Gulf of Mexico. Mr. Derivas explained, " It ' s not unusual to meet up with winds of fifty or sixty knots on a cruise of this length. The horror stories you read in the newspapers of small craft lost in storms at sea involve rank amateurs who should never have undertaken such a voyage in the first place. " After teaching at Millikan in the early sixties, Mr. Derivas returned in the fall of 1980. Looking towards the future, Mr. Derivas said, " My interest in sailing is still very high and I plan to take another voyage in the near future.

This question was answered in the newly named U.S. Government class. Every year, all the seniors in U.S. Government went to go to court and view trial methods and processes. Along with the court trip, the Government classes and all other Social Studies classes focused heavily upon the 1980 Presidential elec- tion. Teachers found the election a good topic for class debates and discussions as well as quiz and test material. Added to the Social Studies pro- gram was the ninth grade Comparative Political and Economic Systems class. Many of the Social Studies teachers were involved with the " Law in a Free Society " project, which is a program that attempted to further law- related education. Social Studies Department Head Ernie Beckett hosted visiting members of the executive board and area coordinators. He, along with Mr. Ramseyer, exhibited demonstra- tions for the cause. There were similar efforts by Mr. Brown, Mr. Urbanek, Mr. Larsen, Mr. Hicks, and Mr. Louder. In the Foreign language department, Mr. Louder returned to teach Spanish after teaching at Washington Junior High for two years. Mrs. Cahn, who also taught Spanish, had family mem- bers teaching at every level of education in Long Beach.

The Orchestra represented Southern California at the Mountain States Festival In Arizona. Many fund-raisers were staged to finance the excur- sion. Hosting the event was Arizona State University, in Tempe. Entering the festival, the orchestra had a twenty-four year streak of superior festival rat- ings, a feat unmatched by any school in Southern California. The group doubled its previous years ' tempo, with concertmistress Sarah Dodd at the helm of the violin section throughout the schedule. Lisa Van Sant soloed with the Orchestra at Mil- likan ' s Twenty-fifth Anniversary Celebration Con- cert, and played a Rachmanioff piano compos- tion. The Spring Concert featured violinists Sum- bul AM and Ann Cavadini. The Orchestra pro- vided the accompaniment as Sumbul played Novacek ' s " Perpetual Motion " and Ann per- formed Saint-Saens ' Third Violin Concerto.

Violinist Sarah Dodd and Pianist Randy Lem- merman were the featured soloists at the Fall Orchestra Concert. Randy performed the " Liszt Piano Concerto 1 " and Sarah played the " Symphonie Espagnole " with piano accompani- ment. Some members were able to earn money dis- playing their talents in competition or playing for various organizations. Bassoonist John Hecox spent his spare time playing for the Civic Light Opera. Although the Orchestra lost many of its top players to graduation, they were replaced by many outstanding sophomores.

Flowers and tears were passed around as the cast expressed happiness and relief at their show ' s success. Miss Debra Mazik, Millikan ' s new choral teacher, produced a magnificent performance of last year ' s musical. Wendy Spohn, as Eliza Dool- ittle, and Mark Calkins, as Henry Higgins, led a talented cast and chorus to a mesmerizing pro- duction of " My Fair Lady. " Miss Mrazik spear- fieaded the tedious rehearsals along with Mr. Randall and Mr. Strickler. Other cast members were Randy Lemmerman as Colonel Pickering Jeff Berke as Alfred P. Doolittle, Susie Kapa- maci as Mrs. Pierce, Robin Baty as Mrs. Higgins, and Tal Finney as Freddy Eynsford-Hill. The story began in London, England, near the time period of 1912. Eliza Doolittle, a poor flower girl, met Henry Higgins, a shrewd linguist, and his fellow linguist Colonel Pickering. Pickering wag- ered Higgins that he couldn ' t pass Eliza off as a duchess by improving her speech and manner- isms in six months. Higgins accepted the bet and a vigorous training began, which ended in suc- cess. Eliza felt she had been used for nothing but a bet and ran away with her infatuated admirer Freddy Eynsford-Hill. The shrewd Higgins began to miss the " draggle-tailed guttersnipe " and Eliza returned after being bored silly with Freddy the square. " My Fair Lady " was comedy in its highest form and involved many touching scenes in addition to the humorous ones.

Editors Kriss Paige, Kelvin Yamashita, Laura Marsh, and John Yamashita successfully coaxed and scolded the yearbook staff through many hectic moments. The theme " Celebrate " was chosen for its upbeat nature. It also represented Millikan ' s mood on the occasion of its twenty-fifth anniversary as well as the numerous other anniversaries taking place throughout the Southland. In the words of special copy editor Cindy Tamminga; " At first I liked the theme Getting a Ram Hi, but I think ' Cel- ebrate ' represented the mood of Millikan better! " " Celebrating " helped to keep the spirits of the staff high in their attempt to produce another five- star All-American book. Last year ' s late night layout parties, tedious technical efforts and new innovations paid off for Millikan ' s yearbook staff. The blending of old and new led Aries, under the direction of advisor Joan Danielsen, to receive " All-American " the cov- eted 5-star classification. The theme: " The Same, Only Different " emphasized many of the changes on campus. There were plenty of changes in the book ' s format as well: yet Aries retained many of its successful and interesting traditions. For the third time in Millikan history, Aries received the 5-star All-American award. This meant marks of distinction in copy, coverage, photography, and development of theme. Over the past ten years Aries has developed a tradition of excellence which has meant an unbroken series of All-American Awards.

For years, this had been the site of the Drama department ' s spring produc- tion. Several solutions were offered to the prob- lem posed by the fire, all but one of which are now defunct. The working one, started last summer, was known as the " Terrace Theatre. " The theatre was built in sections and moved up to the balcony and assembled. The project was supervised by Mr. Bordeaux, with the help of Wayne Coleman, Don Ruhe, and Brad Slosar. It got it ' s acid test this spring with the first full- scale production shown on it, " You ' re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. " The musical-play featured Peter Herron as " wishy-washy " Charlie Brown and Tim Slope as assistant director. Slope played an important part in directing the play since Mr. Randall was quite often preoccupied with staging the spring musical, " My Fair Lady. " " Charley ' s Aunt " visited the main auditorium in early December and played to delighted audi- ences. The lead role of Jack Chesney in this Brandon Thomas British comedy was alternately played by Kim Hayes and Chris Affre. In sup- porting roles were Kim Amberia, Patrick Duffy, and Tim Slope. Other cast members included Robin Baty, Lisa Temple, John Griff, James Jiminez, Robin Solovei, Maria Teglovic, and Heather Bunker.

The Editor-in-Chief was J. Scott Richardson, and the advisor was Donald Bush. Mr. Bush, a twenty-five year veteran of Milli- kan, attempted to publish the tabloid size paper every three weeks. " My major goal is to publish more than two issues, " Scott said, in reference to last year ' s misfortunes. Photographer Tony Kra- jewski worked overtime to put more pictures in Corydon, while sports editor Jill Yamasaki devoted an entire page to Ram sports teams.

Ornamental Horticulture was one of the twenty- six ROP C (Regional Occupation Program Cen- ter) classes offered to Millikan students. Despite declining enrollment in the program, 223 Millikan students participated. ROP C classes offered instructional on-the-job training, as a way for students to have a career field when they graduated. Classes ranged from Animal Care to Appliance Repair. Bus transportation was provided to and from the classes. Credits were allotted according to the amount of time spent in each class. Although some of the classes required the stu- dents to arrive at school by 7:30 a.m., the pro- gram was received enthusiastically. As one sec- ond-year Nurses ' Aide student, Tracy Collins, said, " The class really gives me an idea of what it ' s like to work with people. I plan to have a career in therapy, and the background I ' m getting will help me a lot.

Steadfast Survivor The waves crashed against the hull, catapulting the tiny fishing boat high over the furious ocean in a hundred-mile-an-hour wind during a vicious hurricane off the coast of Alaska not long ago. Staff assistant Patrick Murphy was saved, but he lost his third ship to his favorite passion and pas- time — the sea. Since the age of six, Staff Assistant Patrick Mur- phy has centered his life around the sea. He started fishing with his Grandfather who was a lobster fisherman on the East Coast After college, Mr. Murphy began his " career at sea. " He joined the Merchant Marines and spent three years sailing in the Pacific. As a crew mem- ber on the oil tanker the " American Eagle " he spent the next few years sailing to ports in South America, the Persian Gulf, and Aruba, which housed an oil refinery off of the North Coast of Venezuela. He owned his own boat which he sailed to Alaska every summer since 1958 to fish for Salmon. Mr. Murphy had spent a lot of time teach- ing and living in Alaska during the 1 960 ' s.

This new system vastly reduced the confusion that had existed. In the past, students with the longest arms and the loudest mouths usually got their readmits approved first. Students had to scramble for the readmit forms as if they were after a fumbled foot- ball. Definite lines were set up. Girls ' Track coach and Staff Assistant Rod Pet- kovic was kept busy every morning passing out readmits to each student and making sure that only three students were in line at the counter. The only drawback was that confusion worked faster, and students who found themselves at the end of the line had many worried thoughts about how they were going to get to their first period classes one time. The office purchased a new Xerox copy machine to make the flow of paperwork go smoothly, but even before the staff and teachers had learned how to use it, a repairman had to be called out to disassemble and fix it — slowing down the paperwork instead of speeding it up. Painters performed a usually unseen service on the mornings of important football games sand- blasting and painting over sidewalks and walls, covering over spray-painted slogans created by early-morning mischief-makers from rival schools.

" Millikan ' s new speech coach Mrs. Whitel- eather ordered a nervously slurring, stammering stu- dent. It took a committed, disciplined, and patient person to be a speech coach. Mrs. Whiteleather and other coaches like her spent a minimum of two hundred hours a semester at their jobs, and that didn ' t include the time spent preparing students for tournament com- petition. Mrs. Whiteleather was not only Millikan ' s speech coach; she was the vice-president of and chairperson for Ventura, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara counties for two consecutive years. She was also elected to the State Speech Council, which meant she was responsi- ble for finding sites for running tournaments for up to 650 participants. Mrs. Whiteleather was personally responsible for the success of a number of attorneys as well as for the careers of producers, teachers, and ministers. " There ' s a special satisfaction one receives when a student who has worked finally achieves that success and is over-whelmed by his or her accomplishments, " said Mrs. Whiteleather. " Often my students find that speech class is the most worthwhile class they ever took.

No, it was parachutist John Montrella, coach of the Rams guys ' swim team. His education at UCLA, and his career as an Ail- American water polo player were interrupted by military service. In the paramedic unit of the army, he was a veteran of over one-hundred parachute jumps. One mission involved the Apollo Space Capsule. If the target was missed, the unit was to parachute into the water in scuba gear to attach the flotation collar to the capsule so it didn ' t sink. Although his unit was never needed, they practiced many times with one- hundred pounds of equipment. Mr. Montrella was also a lifeguard at Seal Beach for eighteen years. Being married and a father was a major part of his life. He and his wife had a " pee-wee " soccer star for a son and a daughter in the " terrible two ' s. " In 1974 when his son was born the swim team gave him a three months supply of " tidy didy " diaper service at the sports awards banquet.

Mr. Ciriello was a founder and sat on the Board of Directors for the popular student excursion " Capitol Classroom. " Capitol Class- room was a six-year old organization to orient high school and city college students to the Federal Government. Several Millikan stu- dents each year took part in the nine-day trip to Washington D.C. As a former president of the South Bay chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, Mr. Ciriello was particularly concerned with improving the environmental and safety aspects of the Los Angeles port complex. In addition to spending a year of teaching in Greece on a federal Fulbright grant, Mr. Ciriello spent a year in Italy on a grant from the Ford Foundation. He also commented, " I think that young people should be aware of the past, so that they may properly build the future. ' ' LIVING HISTORY — Co-founder of the Caprtol classroom program, Robert Ciriello hangs a poster advertising the program. Forty Millikan students visited Washington D.C. on this program last summer.

It was Dave Radford, graduate of the Millikan class of 1 956. Mr. Radford was the recipient of the first Hall of Fame award, and he was very involved at Millikan — playing Varsity Football and Tennis; being a member of Key Club, AFS, Junior Statesman; and acting as Senior class President. As a student in Millikan ' s first year, Dave Radford had the opportunity to help create many school traditions, such as school colors, Aries yearbook, Corydon newspaper, and a tradition of excellence in sports (Millikan went to CIF in football, basketball, and baseball in that year). " It was exploring and challenging. Every time you did something it was the first, like making a new culture. We were able to create our own class just the way we wanted it. Teachers were all new, so it was a ' we ' feeling instead of ' us versus them. ' " Academics Teacher Features 145 A Sad Goodbye to Coca Cola " Is it my imagination of has this burrito shrunk since yesterday ' ? " " Hey! What happened to my apple pie ' ?! " These were the questions that were asked by students who bought the new burritos and apple pies during lunch and nutrition. Although stu- dents were paying more for food, their food seemed to be much smaller than in recent years. To add to their confusion, the chemical-laden sodas shrank down to nothingness. The students were deprived of their chance to fill themselves with additives and artificial flavoring by a new fed- eral government regulation which prohibited the profitable (and delicious) sale of carbonated drinks during school hours. Although many students applauded the new fruit juices which replaced those unhealthy sodas, most students suffered from Root Beer withdrawal symptoms. While some people deserted to McDonald ' s. Jack-in-the-Box, and Wendy ' s where they could drink all the Cokes they wanted, many students stayed behind to eat the new Polish Sausage Sandwich at the cafeteria with fruit juice. So from now on, Millikan junk food junkies would have to change their Coca Cola theme song to " Polish Sausage adds life! " RIGHT: HEY MIKEY! HE LIKES IT! — Linda Brown and Yoon Suh find out that, contrary to popular opinion, ducks do eat McDonald ' s liamburgers. Yoon and Linda prefer ttie solitude of mile-away El Dorado park for their lunch break. MAKING A BREAK FOR IT — Junior Daryl Friedman, sans lunch pass, tries to get by Murphy at fifth period lunch. He was caught and sent to " jail " in the office. ikan Murals Condemned to quarters or free to leave? The answer to this question lay in a magic piece of cardboard called thei lunch pass. The idea of lunch pass was conceived by Millikan administrators to discour- age students from leaving campus during lunch (half) hours. A new policy required students to drag one of his parents to the office to validate the pass with a signature. Once this feat was accomplished, a student was free to hop: down to Subway for a healthy pastrami and cheese sandwich. Less fortunate and lazy students — the ones who simply could not or would not persuade their parents to make the trip to school — were doomed to cafeteria mystery meat and Hostess fruit pies. Of course, there were a few students who took their chances and attempted to skip out to McDonald ' s or Straw Hat without a pass. But for most Rams, the adventure was not worth the risk. Students caught minus a lunch pass were usually sent to the Principal ' s office.

The Hotline lockers, a vehicle for suggestions, were also revamped. Fall Council was hard at work with a circus Homecoming and other " Good Deal " innova- tions; Theme Days for the 50 ' s and 60 ' s, holiday celebrations, and reviving school dances. Another noteworthy project of Fall Council was their open session. Said Sophomore Senator Robbie Schlesinger; " It was cool, it gave stu- dents a chance to meet their leaders face to face.

The Keywanettes were led by fall president Nancy Kahn and spring president Ann Cavadini, while Tim Arnold and Todd VanSooy were cho- sen for Key Club. Together they organized other projects such as visiting convalescent homes, and painting the drainage ditch behind the south parking lot. They also worked at the Diabetes Bike-a-thon. Key Club started off the year by choosing Chu Hong to be their October " Sweetheart. " The Key- wanettes also met to campaign and vote for their " Creep " of the month. The winners were kidnap- ped and taken out for dinner or ice cream. The clubs also held several parties. Key Club, along with sponsor Robert Bower, was named as Club of the Semester last fall. Mr. Bower described the club as " a bunch of crazy, funny, and fantastic guys. " He was right. All year Key Clubbers who were chosen as Creeps wrote letters to the Keywanettes which kept the girls laughing for hours. During March the Keywanettes hosted a district wide conference for Keywanettes from all over Southern California. They made a lot of new friends and they also learned a great deal. In addition, Keywanettes had a special installa- tion luncheon at the home of Monica Duacsek. Their huge salad bar, delicious breads, cakes, and cookies were said to be better than those of any restaurant in California. New members partic- ipated in the traditional candlelight service.

The tourna- lent began with a group of warmly-clothed, room-equipped players at about 1 1 :30 P.M., and nded with frozen feet, broken brooms, and iruises at about 1 :30 A.M. After sufficient recovery time, the members ttended the annual Quill and Scroll banquet. The lub, sponsored by Mrs. Joan Danielsen, con- isted of Aries and Corydon members, and was headed by President Kriss Paige. Under President Eric Simone, the members of National Honor Society took advantage of its only first semester meeting to plan a work day for a school project. The event took place at the Long Beach Child Care Center, where members gar- dened, painted, and generally cleaned up the center to make it nicer for the kids. Near the end of the semester, nearly all mem- bers attended the closing-year dessert, a tradi- tional event where outstanding students were lauded. Sponsored by Mr. Vogt, the Chess Club met every Monday after school. Backgammon recently was added to the club ' s interest. Headed by President George Shahin members studied strategies and moves. ) (, mti J QUILL AND SCROLL — FRONT ROW: Karen Abramow, Cheryl Rosenstein, Tara Wallis.

Kim, who had already received a Finnish High School diploma, came to Lor Beach in August. Kim participated in the choral, dance, and drama productions, including a role in the fall play, " Charlie ' s Aunt. " Entering Millikan at the beginning of the second semester, Beth lived with Denise Becotte ' s fam- ily. Denise ' s sister was also a domestic exchange student, spending the second semester in Minne- sota. AFS ' Homecoming Sponge-Throw boosted its budget, with the help of Activities Director Mr. McFerrin, who donated his body to a wet cause. He was the sprong-throw target. DECA used its marketing skills to promote its Homecoming Sausage Sale. They proved to be the largest vendor of food at the event. During the spring, DECA, headed by president Monique Parker, attended regional conferences in both San Diego and Ventura. Millikan Munchies provided a tasty alternative to the cafeteria and fast-food places. The weekly luncheons were served on Wednesdays during both lunch periods. The meal was priced at $2.50, and a typical menu included Chicken Kiev, Glazed Carrots, Mashed Potatoes, Homemade Yeast Rolls, and Flaming Cherries Jubliee. AFS — FRONT ROW: Cindy Parkins.

The dramatic Masquers, the reso- nant Chamber Singers, the twirling Dance Club, and the electronic wizardry of the Theatre Arts Technology Club stole the spotlight in Millikan and the community. The Masquers lifted the 1980 curtain by pro- moting a candy sale to stock their treasury. Eldo- rado and Bixby Parks were then visited by cos- tumed Masquers as they performed scenes from plays, mimed, and folk danced for enlightened crowds. Select Rembrandts of the club painted the Christmas mural on the cafeteria windows. Masquer officers Tim Slope and Robyn Solovei said that the club " was not as active as it usually was, but accomplished much just the same. " Chamber Singers, led by Randy Lemmerman and Tal Finney, was the new club on campus. They sang in a number of performances in the school and the community. The Dickens style car- olers at the Marketplace and Eldorado Park were the Chamber Singers adding to the Christmas spirit. Members Dani Conroy, Margaret Pott, and Ted Arihana sang solos in full voice. Various YMCA ' s and restaurants were performed for and the Secretaries of the Long Beach Unified School District were serenaded, Even the Queen Mary set sail on seas of music as the Chamber Singers performed for the Propeller Club of America, Other groups were bemagicked by the spell of the Chambers Singers ' voices. What is one place and ten places at once? Milli- kan ' s stage became a different world for every show thanks to the artistic and electrical talents of the Theatre Arts Technology Club, The stage crew gave life to the stage and performances such as the school plays, the school musical, the Talent Show, the Mr, Ram Pageant, and the cho- ral concerts. The spectacular Terrace Theatre that hangs suspended from the balcony in the auditorium was conceived by the stage crew. Stage Manager Wayne Coleman, and supervisor John Bourdeaux. The Dance Club whirled their way through ben- efit performances at Leisure World and Veteran ' s Hospital. Master Classes given by professional dancers were arranged for by the club and its president Tony Moss.

Cure: Seniorectomy? Essay tests finger cramps, oral report day larengitis, final ' s cramming brain sprains, the 7:30 A.M. blues, and beach fever were just a few symptons of the rap- idly spreading disease Senior-itis. This disease only plagued seniors, though many hypochondriatic under- grads felt distressed by this illness. Sen- ioritis was not new in the medicine world. It had been around ever since high school though complete information on this crippling disease was still unknown. Recently, scientific studies had shown seniors being a little " too cool, " " too smart, " and just " too hip " compared to the average student. Senior Aurelia Rubio said, " When I first got it, it wasn ' t so bad. Then as the year went on, my body began moving routinely and my mind slowly began to deteriorate. " Was there a cure? Could this disease be controlled? No one was sure. Many felt four digit donations to your senior class funds was the answer. Others felt it was the engraved name on a diploma. Whatever the answer, seniors got it — and loved it! Kelvin Yamashita ' 81 ABOVE BUT ...

Organized by Fall Senior President Kelvin Yamashita with the help from Fall Vice-President Dorothy Djokic and Senator Jeff Black, it was highly publicized. Why the success? Students such as Josette Huber, Jaqui Warr, and Steve White agreed it was the promotion. Jaqui stated, " Kelvin nagged and nagged until people bought tickets to hush him up! " Held after the Christmas Holidays, it kept the tradition of girls ' choice. Other class council activities included the cre- ation of a jack-in-the-box float at Homecoming, and the selling of submarine sandwiches. Spring Glass Council, lead by President Nancy Kahn, Vice-President Tara Wallis, and Senator Kurtis Eifert, initiated spring activities. The coun- cil helped plan and set up Spring Week, a week of games, competitions, and food. The Spring Coun- cil also supplied a Senior Class Gift, a job that went undone last year because of an insufficient budget.

Such entrees were typical at Downey Community Hos- pital, where senior Jackie Hutchins worked in the Dietary Department. Jackie ' s job was a challenging one which required her to perform many different kinds of tasks. Some days she functioned as the diet clerk, distributing menus to patients, calculating the amount of food needed for the day, and preparing the food for patients on " calorie control " and dia- betic diets. Other times she was cast in the role of dish room worker, washing and sterilizing the var- ious dishes and utensils. Jackie never imagined she ' d end up working in a hospital, even though her mother was a nurse. Once she started, Jackie considered the job as a potential career — " Until I discovered how much chemistry was involved! " said Jackie.

There was an explanation for everything (except Millikan ' s sea- son). Senior Tim Sweeney Jr. (Millikan) was a guard on the Millikan basketball team. Tim Sweeney Sr. (Lakewood) was the coach of Lakewood ' s basketball team. Tim Sweeney (Wilson), a JV Basket- ball player at Wilson, was not really Tim Sweeney, but John Swee- ney by a typographical error in the Wilson Basketball program. Still confused?

Dave placed second in a field of seven. Walking on Water Water flew up in a shimmering wall as Dave Wicker raced his streamlined hydroplane. Dave dared the waves to catch him over twenty times a year and raced two or three times a month during summer. Dave broke in at the young age of six weeks old when his father took him for a ride. Since then, he acquired a certified license and drove his own boat. He raced on various courses between Flo- rida and Long Beach. Hydroplanes were very dangerous and require safety precautions. Safety helmets and vests had to be approved by the American Powerboat Asso- ciation. Engines must constantly be checked. Having no gears hydroplanes took a steady hand to control its lightening speed. Dave raced on an amateur level last year, but his goal was to become professional and race in a $1 50,000 Gran Prix at Lake Puddingstone.

Millikan Sr. Sarah Dodd and her sopho- more brother Richard have the Beethoven, vi hile Jordan Robert ' s Bakery has the donuts. One of Millikan ' s premier musicians (She is first chair violin, but also doubles in piano, cello, flute, and trumpet) Sarah and cello player Richard figured that their Jordan Robert ' s gig would be an enjoyable job: especially if there were some big tippers. Sarah also felt that the job would give her some valuable experience in becoming a concert violinist, her career goal. Certainly, Sarah had the ability to become a concert player as she practiced and played whenever she could. With one of the world ' s best teachers, Elizabeth Holborn as her tutor and the countless music camps that she has visited it was no wonder her trophy case was filled to the brim with honors. Although her English born family consisting of a trum- peting ' father, a singing mother, and a celloist brother were music oriented, Sarah played for only one reason; She loved music!

You bet! Senior Matt Brady helped to reconstruct the main street of an old ghost town that once stood near Lancaster, California. fvlr. Bill Rush bought the town two years ago. fvlatt and his brother took it down piece by piece, then took it to Hoss Ranch, which is near Lake Arrowhead, California. The ranch started six years ago. It included a guest house, main house, and a barn. The ranch was almost self-sufficient, having two fresh water springs, a green house, beef and a pond stocked with six to twelve inch rainbow trout. Matt loved to get away from the city, and this was the way he did It, This masterpiece would be completed Labor Day 1981 with the hotel, a working blacksmith, and a fire department, A ghost town was comin ' alive at Hoss Ranch ' George Gjersvold ' 81 LEFT: IT ' S QUITTIN " TIME — Alter a hard day ' s work, Matt Brady relaxes near the semi-constructed gtiost town Graduates Flores-Garcia 181 Mike Gardner Robin Geiger lU A Dwayne Garmon Elizabeth Garrido Lisa Gaskill Cheryl Gengler Gordon Gensei ALL CAUGHT UP — in his work, senior Kurl Yarke demon- strates one of many contortions lefties must suffer just to com- plete an assignment in English. Southpaw Draw in a world of rights and wrongs, the Let- ties had, for a long time, been " left out. " There was always a right way, a right traingle, a right-of-way, even the country was held together by a " Bill of Rights. " On the other side there were two left feet, a left-handed compliment, and left behind altogether. " People say lefties are backward goons. It ' s unfair! " said Chris Moore. Such simple things as scissors, butter knives, wallets, and even co mmon playing cards were designed for righties. " I sew and they don ' t make left-handed scissors that cut! " said Tamara Bateman. Complaints could still be heard, " When I go out to eat I always have to sit on the end. " said George Gjersvold. " My pen always gets writing on my hand, " said Jenni McHugh. So the world went on. Ink stained and bin- der bruised, the southpaw found he had three choices — the right way, the wrong way, and the ever increasing left way.

Debbie Kersch was one of those students who just couldn ' t wait. Debbie discovered an article in the L.A. Times about the Young Scholars Program at CSULB. Eager to get a head start in her college education, Debbie signed up and was soon enrolled in her first college classes, Psychology 100 and Litera- ture Appreciation. The Young Scholars Program, in its first year as a kind of pilot endeavor, attracted only a dozen applicants. Open to high school students juniors and seniors with a 3.2 GPA minimum, the pro- gram allowed each scholar to earn up to six units a semester. Debbie found that there were plenty of advan- tages to joining the college scene early. " Being a student at Gal State means I can join campus clubs and participate in many campus activities. Besides, it sure is a great way to meet college men!

Thirteen Millikan students beat him to it last sum- mer for a nine-day Capitol Classroom program. Nine days were spent in Washington as the students got right into the govern- mental atmosphere. The Capitol halls became the classroom in the daytime as they met Congressmen, Senators, and Chief Justice Warren Burger. " All of them stepped around probing questions as politicians are capable of doing usually do " said Nesha Barrad. Mt. Vernon, Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, and The Smithsonian Institute were just a few of the many historical sites visited by these privileged Rams. " The night life in D.C. was the best, " exclaimed Bridget Clydesdale. " There was so much to do, so little time, and so many men! " The trip ended with sore feet, many memories, new friends, and lots of clothes to be washed at home as they packed their bags and boarded the plane.

During the hour-and-a-half period, Liz told sto- ries, did worksheets, and " just talked. " Liz ' s job as a camp counselor fostered her interest in teaching. She took an ROP class that enabled her to work with educationally handicap- ped children at Prisk Elementary School.

Believe it or not, some did it by investing in comic books. Senior Bruce Fung and his brothers Brian and Brent had collected comics for the past six years. What was a source of reading pleasure turned into a money maker. They had over five hundred Marvel and DC comics worth over a thousand dollars. Keeping up runs (successive issues of titles) required making weekly trips to the comics store in Hawaiian Gardens. " Knowing what to invest in was the toughest part. " Bruce commented. Examples of profits were Star Wars 1 and X- men 137. They sold for thirty and fifty cents when they first came out, but quickly rose to six dollars and twenty-five dollars respectively. They planned to continue adding to their col- lection in the future. In addition, they had col- lected coins, stamps, and bubble gum cards. " It ' s a good way to get away from homework. " Bruce added. Bruce Fung Cindy Tamminga ' 81 WHAT A LIFE — Bruce Fung withdraws to a water world of fantasy as he joins his superfriends.

How best to teach foreign speaking students English? The controversy ranged over Bi-lingual and ESL programs in the U.S. One student who came to this country when she was ten years old — Chu Hong — offered this view, " Programs are probably necessary for older kids, but the younger ones pick up the language fast. They aren ' t inhibited. " Chu had no special help of any kind, and she didn ' t recall that learning English was " any big deal. " Chu ' s family fearing the spread of Communism and government instability, fled Korea when Chu was in the fourth grade. Korean schools were much different, Chu explained — she attended private school six days a week in Korea. On Wednesdays students would have physi- cal education day when they would run around the Seoul Mountains, and on Sat- urdays the children spent half the day drawing pictures of the mountainous scenery.

Customers and tellers shiv- ered as the thief demanded money at gunpoint . , . " " I HATE STANDING IN LINE, " I remember saying to my friend, " Especially the day after Thanksgiving when everyone but me is thankful for having money to put in the bank. " My friend gave me a disgusted look, and I decided it was best to shut up. My eyes wandered aim- lessly down the line of cus- tomers and they abruptly stopped as they reached the man directly behind me. He was wearing a bright red snow cap, and a stark white unders- hirt with Levi jeans. Oh well, he ' s not dangerous I thought, People only rob banks in the movies . . . " Alright everyone! This is a stick-up. One word and ... " I heard the gun click ... I looked up ... I immediately put my head back down when I realized the gun was pointed in my direction. A million thoughts ran through my mind. I wondered who would attend my funeral. I was speechless, shocked, and very scared. I was baffled at the fact that anyone would do such a terrible thing. When I asked the manager how it happened, he only replied, " a robber a day takes our money away.

In senior Joel Spencer ' s case, it was when he was on the little league field umpir- ing. Joel said that, " . , . sometimes a coach or manager got so upset, I had to kick him out of the dugout. " Joel umpired at El Dorado Park for the Los Altos Little League for five years. He was paid six dollars when he was on the field, and seven dol- lars when he umpired behind the plate. Although he had problems with the coaches, his biggest problems were with the kids, who he said really played hard to win. The most unusual moment for him was when a kid lost control of his motorcycle and crashed through the fence while the game was in progress. Joel explained that, " The first baseman was a little shaken up, but nobody was hurt so we kept on playing. " Todd VanSooy ' 81 198 YOU ' RE OUTTA THE GAMEI — Joel uses his umpir- ing authority to remove assistant pee-wee manager Bret Matheny from a crucial play-off game.

" This mishap by senior Greg Haines was fortunately only one of few problems encountered by him on his sailboat. Greg has been sailing and racing sailboats for five years, mostly on his own sixteen- foot Hobie Cat. Greg was an active member of Hobie Fleet 3, a group that races every Thursday during the summer, Greg ' s racing accomplishments and awards proved him to be an experienced sailor. He placed in six of seven fleet races, also in three different regattas. Greg placed at Wofford Heights, Ancient Mariner, and Lake Castaic. He also found a way to relate his hobby with his work. Greg worked at Regatta Sailboats for three years building sailboats, giving demon- strations, and taking out lessons. Greg also enjoyed other activities such as skiing, surfing, and wind-surfing.

An Overnight Success " Being on TV makes me no different or more special ... " These were the words of Brian Tinson after completing a taping session of American Bandstand. Brian, a junior, first got his start dancing with his cousin in The Tiger Beat, a dance contest for couples. Even though he didn ' t place, a television agent saw him and invited him to appear on Dick Clark ' s New Years Rockin ' Eve. From that break, Brian " vaulted to stardom, " as a regular on Bandstand. He tingled with excitement and nervousness during the first taping, but after a few shows he became camera wise, and the millions of people out in TV Land no longer bothered him. It was a long ways from dancing lessons and four hour practice sessions to meeting Stephanie Mills and Helen Reddy, but Brian is happier for the journey.

That announcement was part of the shocking reality that hit home for Millikan stu- dents. The Long Beach neighborhoods of many Miliikanites received the title of Robbery City. Long Beach discovered that it was no longer immune to the rising crime rate afoot for two dec- ades. The latest statistics showed that violent crime, murder, rape, and armed robbery had risen at an alarming rate. It was clear that Millikan students as a whole were shocked. The day the murdered body of former DeMille student Kathy Ryan showed up just outside the campus marked a tragic first for Millikan. This dis- covery occurred only a few days after another young girl was found murdered near Marshall Junior High. Although a suspect was quickly taken into custody, the events became a grim reminder to students that the violence of televi- sion and newscasts could invade even a quiet residential school community.

This award was given to stu- dents who showed extra effort by taking addi- tional classes. Recipients of the Medallion Dip- loma received a medal and a larger than usual diploma. Head counselor Dick Elwell explained that the reason for not giving the diploma next year was because a new state law prohibited high schools from giving different sized diplomas. The staff did decide to remove the diploma in 1982, but they will still give out medals to the students who earned the awards. Students maintained high achievement stand- ards set in previous years. Overall GPA was above that of other Long Beach High schools at 2.45. Nineteen 4.0 students, 57 Sealbearers, and 19 Potential Sealbearers received special recog- nition at the annual CSF Banquet held in May. Many seniors found themselves spending a lot of time filling out scholarship applications or stud- ying for tests to receive money for future educa- tion. Among the students nominated by the coun- seling staff for scholarships presented by the Bank of America, Independent Press Telegram and American Bar Association were Eric Simone, Cindy Tamminga, and Ken Hamilton. 4.0 STUDENTS — FRONT ROW: Sumbul Ali, Susan Mashiyama, Sarah Dodd, Rosemary Wrenr 2ND ROW: Vivian Ho, Amy Kaplan, Mark Carter, Cindy Tamminga, Todd VanSooy. 3RD ROV Ben Zimmerman, Enc Simone, Jon Rickenbach, Jerry Abeles, Holly Peterjohn, NOT PICTUREC Kim Amberia, Dante Carag, Wendy Klein, Don Pinkston, Wesley Pope, f}i SENIOR CSF — FRONT ROW: Bob Livingstone, Rosemary Wrenn, Cindy Tamminga, Kelly Hilliar, Mark Carter, Kelvin Yamashita.

" This episode related by Spring Vice-President Ronda Boeckler was just a por- tion of the adventures a group of Junior Class Council members experienced when shopping for a prom band. Fortunately they found Ever- green on their excursion. In other activities Juniors had a difficult time. At Homecoming there was a dispute over the con- struction of their float. Brenda Armstrong explained, " I was covered all over from head to toe with paint, and we had just finished painting the base of the float, when a group of people decided they didn ' t like it and tore it down. " The float took second place in the judging. The Junior class had big plans for money mak- ing, but failure by the florist to deliver the ordered number of mums at Homecoming caused the sale not to be the expected success. They more than made up for it with their Secret Admirer sale, in which they sold cards to students and delivered them with candy canes during second period ($86.72 surplus), BELOW: LEFT TO RIGHT: LAST MINUTE TOUCHES— Fall Senator Alice Mota puts finishing touches on the class of ' 82 scrapbook before passing it on to Spring Senator Caroline Petruncola DIFFERENT STROKES FOR DIFFERENT FOLKS — Junior Shauna Reynolds returns a base line shot during her seventh period tennis class.

At the age of twelve, John made it to the Riverforest Nationals and participated in them for three years in a row. At the tender age of sixteen, John was eligible for the finals division of the Nationals. Other tournaments John attended were the National Hard- courts in Texas and the National Indoors. He went to the State Championships two years in a row, and ranked second as a sophomore. John has participated in numerous other tourna- ments and has excelled in all of them. Outside of his sport, John was a 4.0 scholar. According to John, his future depends solely on his talent. His goal is to win a tennis scholarship and become professional. As John explained it, " I have a ball playing tennis. " NO " LOVES " FOR JOHN — Tennis champ John Bartos is obviously pleased about being the first junior in Millikan history to be named the varsity team ' s " Most Valuable Player.

Radical Horror Rocky Horror fan, junior Janet Jones, was spreading the news of the astounding movie, Rocky Horror Picture Show. Janet estimated that she had spent about one- hundred dollars on memorabilia from the movie. She saw the movie as often as she could and she made a point to listen to her records, both the play and the movie version, at least two times a day, without fail. When asked if it would be boring to see the same movie over and over again, Janet replied, " Oh, no! I saw something new every time I saw it. Plus, the audience participation lets you get radi- cal! " When asked what she meant by audience par- ticipation, she said, " You yell different things that go along with the movie. You throw rice at the wedding scene, toilet paper when Doctor Scott appears, cards when Frankie passes out cards, and that ' s only scratching the surface!! " No matter how many long lines, sell outs, or late nights, Janet believed that she would never turn away from Frankie and the rest of the bizzare Hor- ror bunch.

" was a familiar line in the Los Angeles Dodger locker room, especially as the league race came to an end. It was the job of Bill Buhler, father of junior Mary Buhler, to do this and other jobs to keep the Dodgers on the field. " Last summer it seemed that half our players were suffering from sprains, or were wheelchair candidates, " said Mr. Buhler. Some of the jobs Mr. Buhler carried out were taping sprains, applying physical therapy for injured players, and operating a whirlpool machine for muscle tears and strains. Mr. Buhler was also an accomplished wrestling referee, house painter, and gardener when he unwound during the off season. He was looking forward to many more years with the Dodger Blue.

Luv Snoopy Woodstock " " Sick ' em Rams! " " Happy Sexy Seventeen, Pam " These were a few examples of the zany eye-catching posters seen plastered on the 900 building walls. The artists were varied. The first kind were the cheerleaders who came early and stayed after school to paint catchy slogans with fancy drawings, like " Put Edison ' s Lights Out " or some requiring more paint, like " Lance the Little Lazy Lakewood Losers. " Another group of artists were the secrets of the football players. The secrets were really groups of two or three anonymous kidettes who stayed up until midnight painting posters for a much loved football player. " You ' re a hunk, 99, " " Put that sexy body in gear, Tom. " The last kind of artists were devoted friends who made crazy (some- times embarrassing) birthday posters, such as " Happy Birthday, Mike! Still in school at 22?! " Every poster was a conversation piece, such as the one that attracted thirty coeds to the quad: " Meet me at the apple machine and I ' ll take you to lunch. Luv, Rodney.

They thought up many of their own cheers, such as " Up and Down, " " Hey Chargers, " and " Hey You. " They tried to stay away from the straight cheers most commonly used. To help out they incorporated gimmicks such as new wave and 50 ' s outfits, along with punk glasses and lunch boxes.

Scores of students were labeled with the hilarious title as their pearly whites took on a metallic lusts, . The problem of coping with a bionic mouth turned out three types of people. Braces beginners stuck out like sore thumbs. Their tightly pressed lips did not sig- nify anger; They had simply decided not to open their mouths until the dumb things on their teeth went away. Other forever waved things (hands, PeeChees, Wheaties cereal boxes) in front of their faces. Beginners usually vented their frustration by hitting as many peo- ple as they could with their tiny teethgear rub- ber bands. A rubber band was clear when new and white and well chewed in its best shooting state. Veterans used much more sophisticated methods to conceal their dazzling smiles. The " Press-the-Lips-over-the-Braces technique " and the " Mona Lisa smile " were two of the most popular. Optimists smiled bravely and sincerely believed that their braces would only linger for six more months. A few professed optimists had new clear plastic braces. They were ban- ned from " Tinsel Town. " Advice to the frosh: Don ' t despair if you have not yet been de-braced; Your time will come and then you can make up new old sayings like, " It ' s bracing to have a naked mouth, " and pass them on to the new generation of tin- grins.

Ninety percent of commercials were aimed at the young and at the posterior of human beings. In fact, this probably could have been called " The Year of the Rear. " Some examples were: the pretty young girl swinging to the beat of the " Jordache " theme, the cute little baby wriggling across the screen for " Luv ' s diapers, the com- mand to a clink-clink " Show us your Underalls! " , and girls emphatically crying, TIME TO CHANGE! — Vanessa Hannibal " Pam- pers " Mike Alger at lunch in a farce on the absurdity of TV. commercials. " We love you Sergio. " Most people said that they didn ' t pay any attention, but why then did: Brenda Keller wear Gloria Vanderbilt jeans? Chris Bonachita switch to Pepsi-cola? Rinne White eat Captain Crunch cereal? Cindy Millican shine her teeth with Pearl Drops tooth polish? Linda Dixon use Wisk for ring around the collar? While Millikan students tuned into adver- tising media, 1980 slowly evolved into 1981 .

Ummmmmm. That cut my activities out and next thing I knew, it was my turn. I filled out the slip, showed my note and scrammed. I hadn ' t waited that long since the Who concert.

Emily was the only girl on the sophomore waterpolo team. Only occasionally did Emily feel isolated from the rest of the play- ers. Some men played differently when she was in the water, and a few wouldn ' t pass to her during games. Usually only all-boy squads reacted differently to her. The only thing Emily disliked about being a girl on a boys ' team was missing out on the locker room victory celebrations.

The first-time ever for Millikan, the Frosh melted into campus life with ease. Still, the eighty-eight were subject to jokes and teasing. Equal rights for freshmen made Student Coun- cil an interesting place to be. Freshmen officers were the first to be nominated for cleaning detail. Their big struggle was to have a freshmen sena- tor. Some members of Student Council felt there was no need for the freshmen to have three offi- cers. Steve Lerman lead the battle to gain a freshmen senator. His motto was, " We freshmen deserve equal representation! " After a long battle, justice prevailed, and the freshmen had their sen- ator. Fundraisers were a success although they had a rocky start. Freshmen lost sixty-five dollars on their sale of chilli and chips at Homecoming. How- ever, with the hard work of Kim Nishikawa, Mic- helle Alba, and Hillary Raynes freshmen made ninety-seven dollars on their sale of Jolly Ranch- er ' s suckers held in March.

In the midst of this setting, on the bnsk, cool morning of Sep- tember 11, 1956, history was made as 2,622 transfer students from various high schools blazed the trail which became known as the " Pathway to Excellence and Integhty. " A bean field had been supplanted by a fine educational institution; Robert A. Millikan High School had officially opened its doors. Athletics led the way. Basketball made it as far as CIF in 1958, and Captain Stan Anderson was named All-City Player of the Year. That same year, Ram gymnasts captured the Moore League Title. Some athletes, not satisfied with high school glories, went on to bigger and better things.

Millikan students were also active in other areas. In spring of 1958, Millikan staged its first " operetta " BRIGADOON. Welfare and service clubs such as Serfs, Achates, Anchor and Key were popular on campus and annually displayed their members ' talents in the blockbuster event called the " Aries Sing. " Millikan ' s fine arts and academic programs were re-knowned throughout the community for their high quality. Twenty-five years later, Millikan Rams were still making history — and progress — even as they sat under the shade of the 900 building (which had not existed when the school opened in ' 56) during their lunch hour eating their Big Macs and fries. The women ' s movement which had partially accounted for Millikan ' s first Student Council (all female) had long since introduced Millie to Robbie Ram, and in ' 81 Ram women were continuing their struggle for equal rights. And academically. Rams were better than ever — trodding along the Pathway to Excellence and Integrity.
