In the twenty-four years that Murrah has existed, numerous changes have occurred. Many types of people have come and gone, but they have left behind a continuing legacy of pride. Mur- rah Pride - that indomitable spirit that inspires each loyal Mustang to proclaim, We ie still the one! - in so many ways: painting MHS Jlfl on the water tower, screaming Roll Blue until you're hoarse at pep rallies, sweating the summer away at cheerleader, Miss, band, and football practice, buying all the royal blue crepe paper in town for homecoming, beaming with joy during the traditional Christ- mas Candlelight Concert, cap- turing the first place award at the State Mu Alpha Convention, and commemorating the birth- day of William Belton Murrah in a special ceremony on May 19 Our standards have re- mained high, and we can say with pride - MHS: We ?e Still the One! till Spirit!

Follow- ing Joey Robertson's invocation, senior members of the Murrah Singers sang We've Only Just Begun and the Alma Mater. After Senior President Sheila Dob- son addressed her class for the last time, school letters and awards were presented by Principal James Merritt. Eric Watson closed the program with a rendition of the Lord 3 Prayer. Two hundred and forty-eight Murrah seniors filled the halls of the Mississippi Coliseum on June 6, for graduation exer- cises. To relieve any tension, they talked among themselves until time came for their big moment. After Student Body President Xavier Smith's speech, Princi- pal Merritt presented the class for gradu- ation. Then came the moment for which they had waited 12 years. Dr. Robert For- tenberry, Superintendent of Schools, pre- sented diplomas. Officially graduated, they recessed to the entrance hall for congratulations. Their joy, however, as indicated by the tears of some, was tempered by sadness that they were no longer Murrah's Senior Class, but Murrah alumni, Class of '78, Congratulations!

The annual trip to this Ten- nessee resort was for many Singers the highlight of their year. Lyn Denson, Mouth Monitor, kept order on the thir- teen-hour bus ride, which began at 8:15 a.m., May 11. Public displays of affection were sternly discouraged by Billy Beard and Carolyn Weathersby. Although sleep- ing four or five to a room, all Singers kept their rooms spotless under the guidance of Mr. Clean - Allen Phares. These and other restrictions did not lessen enjoyment of the trip, for Barbara Massey, director and chaperone, allowed everyone to chew gum! William Belton Murrah might have sat up and smiled had he been able to witness the ceremony commemorating his birth- day, May 19. Tracy Bell and Missy Nevins did' research on his life and organized the ceremony. Although the City Fathers were not very enthusiastic about the whole af- fair, they allowed the advanced American History class to proceed when teacher Diane Canterbury pledged her word that no disrespect would be allowed. A picnic at Riverside Park completed the festivi- ties, but a delay at Popeye's forced the students to eat their dessert before the ar- rival of fried chicken. Nevertheless, every- one was glad to have gotten out of school and to have had a chance to honor . . . um . . . that Murrah guy.

Grease Day is reminiscent of Charlie Chaplin. A fad in some places, but a tradi- tion at Murrah is dancing. Most Mustangs will dance anywhereg a fact made obvious at every pep rally. Ronald Cooper expressed the feeling best: 6When you listen to music you may automatically pat your foot. Then you just get up and dance' The Grease Day pep rally on October 6 provided a showcase for the wildest display of boogie fever all year, as guys and gals imitated dances seen in recent movies set in the fifties. At other pep rallies the dancers chose more modern favorites such as: the freaky dog, spank, worm, and 'John Travolta., Formal dances like Homecoming and the Junior-Senior Prom have been well attended by students. The steps seen at these events were the same modern ones done at the pep rallies, and the dancers obviously en- joyed doing them. Paul Franklin likes the new dances. He said, 'They make you look good. I like to be with a girl, especially if she's a good danc- er. You can jam all night longf A lady Mustang expressed her feelings thus: 'Dancing'? It's fun! Disco is fun. You get to go out and wear some- thing you can't usually wear. It's good exercise tool' Most students agreed with Francina Cage when she said, 'Dancing is an exercise you can enjoyf Get down!

Summer . . . those long, sticky days of sunbathing, swimming, and goofing off . . . drifted away all too soon. Summer meant a diversity of activities for students. While Ishia Chapman and Sara Henderson spent the summer earning extra credits in sum- mer school, Houston Wells, Alisa Wilson, Daniel Holmes, and Eddie Elward earned extra cash with jobs. Vacations took MHS students all over the United States and Europe. Mary Powel Jabaley and her family enjoyed the Colorado Rockies, Margaret Gibson visited with former student Tracy Bell in Washington, D.C., and Vicki Sallis explored Oxford, England with her par- ents. For others, shorter trips to the coast, the reservoir, and the local swimming pool were frequent. Groups such as Misses, cheerleaders, Band, and football team practiced daily in the 90 degree heat in anticipation of September and the new school year. Summer meant air conditioning, watermelons, barbeques, pic- nics, and tennis. It meant playing basketball all day to get in shape for the team. Summer meant days at the Reservoir not daring to go in because Jaws II had made an impression. Summer meant going to the Paramount on dollar night and viewing R rated movies. Sum- mer meant sitting around the camp fire singing. It meant watching Redd Foxx On Location 8 times on HBO. Summer meant a loss of time. No one was ever really sure what day it was. Summer meant all night poker games and then getting up groggy to go to work. Most of all summer meant a timefor relaxation, and anticipation for the new school year. l4f Summer 3,5-f"' in ' I -' mi..

P' . i 55 .xg .. , ., is u Elco Although parents did not come 'Back to School' until the PTSA meeting No- vember 13, students had been there since September 5. During the August 29-31 registration some students got their first look at the building since last June, but football players, band mem- bers, Misses, cheerleaders, and painters of the patio had been in and out for the past month. Going to classes in the fall, however, was quite different from roaming the halls in the summer. Stu- dents groaned from long homework as- signments as free afternoons became a thing of the past. Assistant Principal Mangum spent hours opening trouble- some lockers as juniors and seniors 17 right- 151eft and then 7? Opening a new locker detains Rogers Winters on the first day of school. Ack. tried fsometimes succeedingj to open their old lockers from the year before. Sophomores became acquainted with their new school and its various organi- zations in a special orientation assem- bly September 13. Football games, paint parties, and Campus Life meet- ings loomed as weekly events. Because of a School Board ruling, classes began 15 minutes later than last year. Otherwise, the daily routine changed little. Although the first days of classes may have been tedious for some, and enjoyable for others, most soon felt that school had been going on forever. Opening Of Schoolfl7 "Becky, where's the tape?" "Who took my green paint??" "Come on guys, help us hang the signs!" "You'd better clean that up before Mrs. Hardy sees it!i' Two types of students came to the paint parties: those who paint- ed signs and those who "visited" Those of the first type were most- ly cheerleaders, and were required to paint. They were often re- freshed by soft drinks from the Tote-sum, brought by those who came to socialize. And the social- Lunchtime Lunacy. Refugees from the cafeteria, Singers Michael Jabaley, Leslie Jordan, Robin Ma- gruder, Mary Powel Jabaley, Missy Nevins, Maud Deles Gober, and Ricky Denson glory in their free- dom and the springtime air. "Are you kidding??" Daron Wilson can't believe his ears when Leigh Bailey asks him to climb the rafters to hang signs. TIO izers did occasionally paint a "special-interest" sign or two -- representing the seniors, juniors, or Misses. When sign- hanging time came, the rafters, traditionally the guys' terri- tory, were invaded by a few ad- venturesome cheerleaders, in the absence of male volunteers. And the cheerleaders remained after others had gone, to finish and clean up. Because the ad- ministration disapproved of students in the halls before 81 People school, the patio became a gather- ing-place for the social-minded, and those who had a test first pe- riod. When , winter came, they were forced to move indoors, but they returned to the patio as soon as the weather permitted. Spring also led to emmigrations from the lunchroom. These students con- sidered battles with little black bugs a small price to pay for the glorious freedom of fresh air. Z. .Z , A .

Bleachers creaked, rafters shook, and the floor vibrated as multitudes poured into the sign-covered gym in anticipation of the high- light of the week - the pep rally! An outlet for frustration, the MHS pep rally had something for everyone. A few students used it as a time to catch up on last minute homework, while others headed toward the off-limit areas of the parking lot and local convenience store. Faculty mem- bers found refuge in the lounge. But the major- ity showed they had that blue and silver blood by never ceasing to let their Mustang spirit die. Preparations for the big event began early in the week with endless cheerleader, band, and Miss practices. Extra efforts by the cheerleaders made Grease Day, Jersey Day, and Spirit Week smashing successes. After the final cheer, and the fight song, crowds thronging the corridors bursting with Mustang madness, felt no urgency to return to class. Requests for Friday dismissals overflowed as restless students found it hard to concentrate on school after an exhilerating pep rally. "We'rc number o11e."'shouts senior Miss Jana Stroh.

C mmq All the preparation was finally over. Hours spent stuffing chicken wire with kleenex in hopes of Branding the Bulldog and pillaging houses, cars, dogs, cats, and neighbors of rival classes ran out as Home- coming morning dawned. All that was left to do was place a few finishing touches on floats, sleepwalk through the first two class periods, scream at the pep rally, weep, try to get a dismissal, weep some more, and finally just leave school. The sophomores stole the show by having their float arrive via police escort. After a brief respite, the evening activities got under way with the announcement that juniors had won the float contest. Following a spe- cial halftime show presented by the band and Misses, the '78 Homecoming Court was presented. The 1977 Queen, Sheila Dobson, stood on tiptoes to crown Gwen Miller to reign over the 1978 festivities. Victory was apparent as at the game's end, the scoreboard read Murrah -- 20g Green- wood - 14. The traditional homecoming dance was held in a non-traditional place -- the Northside YMCA. There, the scoreboard once again told of the Home- coming victory. 22fHomecoming Maids and escorts of the 1978 Homecoming Court include: Sophomores Jodi Marks and Jeff Ratliff, Juniors Debbie Berman and Ricky Denson, Seniors Tonya Thomas and Allen Phares, Queen Gwen Miller and Car- neal Chambliss, Carney Stevens and Boty McDonald, Winkie Lockhart and Robert Smith, Juniors Evelyn Hatchett and Ronnie Ashford, and Sophomores Sandra Tillman and Jonathan Battle.

Tonya Thomas and Eddy Waller have every intention of making the society page as they walk down the red carpet at the home- coming pep rally. From the 50's to the 70's, from penny loafers to spiked heels, MHS has seen it all. The fashion cycle is never- ending, and Hollywood is often the birthplace of new trends. With the movie "Annie Hall" came the baggy pants, vest, and tie look, Olivia Newton-John in "Grease," made spiked heels, tight satin pants, and curly hair styles vogue. Many of the "new" fashions were actually taken from the 50,sg but one would never know from all the talk of the "latest" trends. Some such trends were the classic blazer, the full, over-the-knee skirt, and the pullover sweater, often paired with such fashion ac- cessories as ties, stick pins, and gold belts. Guys were in style too, with three-piece "John Tra- Volta" disco suits, skinny ties, vests, and collarless shirts. Hats made a comeback with both sexes - girls favored berets, while guys wore any style the administration would allow. One item that will never go out of style is blue jeans. However, 1979 saw a drastic narrowing of pants legs, from bell-bottom to straight. Fashion allowed shorter girls to roll up their jeans and still be right in style, the pairing with spiked high heels only served to dramatize the effect. In spite of New York and high fashion, many Mustangs clung to their blue jeans, t-shirts, and sneak- ers. Q .

Some teachers required the students to be actors as well as writers, and to produce scenes from plays in the classroom. Almost every student wrote a term paper, whether for English or a social studies course. The World History classes worked from the textbook except for a brief unit on black history, but students of American history prepared for col- lege by taking notes and writing a paper every term.

Those who combined simple math with biology knew the answers to these questions. Physics students were often required to work problems on the computer. But not all stu- dents had the problem of combining math with science. Some took neither subject, and many only one. Accelerated Math students often wondered, "What can we do with this?" But those who took Consumer or Fundamental Math knew the answer to that question, and some of the Algebra and Geometry students only knew they had to have that credit to graduate. For real "math-lovers," the computer was always available for printing ban- ners, or for playing Star Trek. Located on the second floor, directly above the computer, were the biology labs - the microscopes, the algae, the frogs, and the formaldehyde. The chemistry and physics labs were at the other end of the hall fas far away as possiblej The former abounded with acids and compounds, test tubes and Bunson burners, the latter displayed student - built engines, and ex- periments with weights and balances.

Typewriting, Shorthand, and Bookkeeping enabled some to find secretarial employment straight out of high school. The Career Development Center was available for those who wanted an early start in a certain occu- pation.

Some students furtively continued studying, hoping to absorb a little more knowledge, until they heard a stern voice: "I said, clear your desks!" All hope vanished anyway when the test - a sheet of empty space and a tiny bit of freshly run-off mimeograph ink - was received. But worse than these were the awful tests like the SAT and the ACT on which one's future depended.

The metamorpho- sis of a cheerleader was a long and sometimes painful process. Led by Captain Becky Hutchison, spon- sored by Mrs. Linda Hardy, and managed by Ricky Denson, Mur- rah's cheerleaders were the only squad to win a spirit stick every day at the NCA Summer Cheerleading Camp at Delta State. They also earned three superior ribbons and a Super Star Squad ribbon. Practice began right after try-outs and continued twice a day through- out the summer, its products were new cheers, towering pyramids, and pom-pon routines. The traditional role of a cheerleader is to promote school spirit, which these girls did by sponsoring Jersey Day, 50's Day, and Spirit Week. They also fulfilled their weekly obligations: making happies for the football and basket- ball players, painting signs, and or- ganizing pep rallies. Becky Hutchison commented, Cheerleading was fun and reward- ing, but we had our down moments, too. When we lost the football game to Hill in the last few seconds, there wasn't a dry-eyed cheerleader in our group. Sometimes, when things were going tough, it helped to sit down and just have a good cry." 58 f Cheerleaders How funky is your chicken?

The group met several times during the summer to lay plans, practice, and choose uni- forms. They selected a short royal blue polyester dress with white trim, white knee socks, and black suede shoes. For games and cold- er weather, they wore a gray knit pants suit. Besides participating in pep rallies, the Blue Jackets yelled as a group at games, and sponsored buses to out-of-town games. Faculty sponsors were Miss Vernell Forest and Mrs. Mildred Odom. The role of the Booster Club, sponsored by Mrs. Beverly Ses- sums, was to promote spirit and support for the athletic programs. During Homecoming Week they made spirit buttons for the foot- ball team and band. On Valen- tine's Day, Boosters sold heart- shaped cakes.

To reach this position, the Murrah Misses suffered through a summer of two-hour daily practices, and a four-day stay at the Superstar Drill Team Camp in Pen- sacola, Florida, which in preparation required four-hours daily practice. The Homecoming show came out of the fast-paced and exhausting days at camp. Not only did the traditional homecoming routine change, but the Misses introduced a "Disco Inferno" routine and sparkling new uniforms at the Callaway game. Onto the field marched 28 girls - led by Co-captains Gwen Miller and Nancy Robertson - their kicks were high, their ripples flew, their heads popped, and their smiles never ceased. 62fMurrah Misses QQAC.. e?

In their daily practices, Singers strove for perfec- tion from the beginning of school un- til Class Day. The busiest part of the concert season was Christmas time, when the Singers performed at lun- cheon clubs, shopping malls, City Hall, Whitfield State Hospital, and even on TV. The annual Christmas Candlelight Concert, given at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church and at the school, was one of the most im- portant events of the year, and moved many to tears. When spring came, Mrs. Massey led her group to district and state competition, in which the Singers al- ways excelled. Selected members also sang in the All-City Choral Fes- tival on February 22. Singing Valen- tines and church concerts once again brought the Singers into the public eye. The most eagerly anticipated event of the spring, however, was the traditional trip to Gatlinburg, Ten- nessee. Four days were packed with bus trips, shopping, mountain climb- ing, swimming, and singing.

These phrases drifted from the audio-visual room once a week when the student council conducted meet- ings. Activities of the council, a govern- ing body of representatives from each class, began during the summer, when Houston Wells, student body president attended a National Leadership Train- ing Center at Indiana University. Mi- chael VanVelkinberg and Houston at- tended the Southern Association of Student Councils in Hickory, North Carolina, in October. As the Christmas season approached, 68 Student Council, Mayor's Youth Council, ESSA Representatives the council collected items for donation to the Good Samaritan Center, and sold Christmas wrapping paper. The Mayor's Youth Council, made up of representatives from each of J ackson's seven high schools, met every two weeks with Mayor Dale Danks, to discuss issues concerning young people. They actively participated in the cam- paign for the Fourth District Congres- sional position by providing a forum for the candidates to air their opinions. Democrat John Hampton Stennis, Re- publican J on Hinson, and Independents Evan Doss and Mary Maxey answered questions submitted by members of the council concerning such issues as edu- cation, taxation, ecology, and the ERA. In the November election, John Hinson defeated John Hampton Stennis by a two-to one majority. Hinson took over the Congressional seat vacated by Thad Cochran, who was elected the first po- pularly elected Republican Senator from Mississippi in a hundred years. The Emergency School Assistance Act Committee, sponsored by Mrs. Louise Owens, was balanced by race, sex, and class.

Copy editors Allen Phares and Mary Powel Jabaley have a consultation about some copy that desperately needs editing. "It's not as difficult as it looks!" Mrs. Hardy . MRNXMAL: till he Une! Copy! Layouts! Captions! Deadlines! When one walked by room 119 during fifth period, these words often floated out. After a trip to Yearbook Camp sponsored by Graduate Supply House, in early June, Mrs. Linda Hardy, Margaret Gibson, and Cordelia Douzenis returned to Jackson dreaming of an All- American annual. They infectedthe staff with their enthusiasm, and several summer meetings were held to work or to socialize, Nevertheless, a lot of work accumulated over the summer and during the fall, so a desperate effort was required to develop and print all the pictures, write and edit all the copy, and lay out every single page. D Funds were also a problem. The price of the annual was 38.50 for the third consecutive year but inflation drove the production costs so high that money donat- ed by patrons was insufficient to cover the cost. The feature pageant a traditional fund-raising activity was produced by feature editor Becky Hutchison on December 7. Although the pageant was a success, the business manager, Kelly Wallace, was frustrated in many of his money-making attempts, which were too often vetoed by school authorities. One successful activity was the selling of bumper stickers that read, MHS +- We re still the One For the most part, however the staff concentrated on selling the annuals ordered to raise the rest of the required sum. As deadlines loomed ever nearer, aesmall portion of the staff rallied to produce and mail the l978-79 Resume, proving that even in times of stress MHS is Still the One!

For only the second time in the history of Murrah High School the Mus- tange basketball team, "The Pony Express," ad- vanced as far as the state championships in the Mississippi Coliseum. The path to such a destiny was rocky. The season opened with many uncertainties. Coach Orsmond Jordan, who had compiled a 139-51 record in his six previous seasons at Murrah, lost all six guards from last yearas team. Youth was yet another factor as four of the starting five were underclassmen with 6'3" Jack Lewis being the only senior. Questions were answered early as the Mus- tangs opened the schedule November 13 with a win over Port Gibson. The season did not end for another three and one-half months until a loss in the state tourney. After an early season overtime victory over rival Callaway the Pony Express seemed to be in a commanding role for the city title. The Mustangs, meanwhile, cap- tured the Warren Central Tournament Cham- pionship, and second place in the Jackson State Tip-Off Tournament. As the season progressed a mold developed. The team began to perform as a unit. Yet their play remained unpredictable. A smashing defeat of Lanier was followed by a crushing loss to Jim Hill in the coliseum. The Mustangs galloped to the finals of the Hinds County Tournament, a championship they had captured the four pre- vious years, only to be humiliated once again by Jim Hill.

UU th y it Sitieaiiteces A regular season victory over Forest Hill clinched the city championship and left the Mustangs with a 5-1 city slate after another one point loss to the Tigers of Jim Hill. An opening round loss to Lanier in the Capital Zone tourney seemed to foreshadow a short post-season life for the Blue and Silver roundballers but such was not the case, The Mustangs survived Sub-district play only to oppose Big Eight Champion Vicksburg in the opening round. After upsetting the Gators, and yet another victory over Callaway, the Mus- tangs stampeded past Jim Hill for the District Six AA Championship. The journey to the South State Finals in Brookhaven saw victories over Pascagoula and Jefferson County, setting the stage for the trip to the overall finals in the Mississippi Coliseum. An opening round loss to Horn Lake ended the Murrah basketball season with a 26-9 record. Many players received recognition for their efforts on various all-tournament teams, 6,7" Donnell Allen, junior standout, being the most decorated. Donnell led all Mustangs with 25.7 points and 16 rebounds per game while team- mates Darryl Johnson and Jack Lewis contri- buted 14 and ll each. Hmmm.

Such could have easily been the motto of Coach Louis "Skin" Boetler and the 1978-79 Lady Mustang basketball team. The remains of the previous yearis city championship club were few and thus the burden of leading the girls fell squarely on the shoulders of 5'2" guard Sandra Shelton. Though the girls were successful in only two of twenty-one contests, the tiny playmaker Shelton proved it is the quality not the quantity that matters. Sandra averaged 17.5 points a game while leading the team. A young prospect emerged during the season in the person of Cathy Husband. Cathy contributed 12.5 points and 14 rebounds per out- ing. These two coupled proved to be the bulk of the offensive output. The thrill of the two victories was greatly exaggerated because of their rarity but each proved a point. The initial win over rival Callaway gave the team bragging rights while the final victory over Port Gibson came late in the year against a team that had defeated them earlier, thus a sense of accomplishment was gained. Though not entirely successful, the girls' basketball team still re- tained the major element in Murrah Athletics - Pride.

To Ron Dill, it's having to face five opponents, each of them trying to kick a soccer ball past him into the goal. Ron, a first-year player, stood up to this pressure twice during the season when a game was tied at the end of regulation play during two overtime periods. His courage was th characteristic of the whole team as the Mustangs, with a first-year coach, over- came many obstacles to finish the sea- son with eight wins, three losses, and the title of City Champs. Third in the league, their only losses were at the hands Cand feetj of Warren Central of Vicksburg, and St. Joe. Their semi-final SS opponent was St. Joe, who had beaten them 3-0 in regular season play. At the end of regulation time, the game was tied at 4-4 and went into overtime.

Hustling extended almost to the point of lack of physical safety as many times the girls would dive toward the floor in an effort to save the point. The squad definitely proved its abilities. Capital Big Eight Medalist Ricky William and Coach Louis "Skin" Boteler guided the Mustang golfers to three first place and two second place finishes through a nine match slate.

Coach Doug Clanton and Assistant Charles Dillon directed the squad to a 4-15 record while enduring a rebuilding season. One bright light, in the person of Curtis Ford, shone constantly throughout the year for the Mustangs. Ford, a senior and three-year starter, became a mainstay at third base for the Stangs. His exceptional hitting and fielding provided incentive for the young Poines throughout the year.

Baseballfl ll limitin g llmlllllllfa gg A Giv l Wait' Everybody got a chance. At least that was the idea. The gym coaches allowed each class to form a team for certain sports. The activities varied from football to volleyball as competition between fellow students was still the focus of attention. Victory became much more than coming out ahead, it meant bragging rights. Of course the uniforms were never the same, and the referees were a little rusty but a win was still a win. The high- light of the intramural season came during basketball season as the championship game was played before the student body. Intramural was definitely a key aspect of the sporting life at Murrah for anyone could be a star - just so it was during gym class. l I2 Intramurals if Q li' W , 4 I a vm, 'QQ E" 'T 42-S312 Fern :BQWQH S lietlsa Running, playing tennis, and throwing a frisbee -those were just a few of the ways Mustangs filled their spare time through- out the year. There was a definite trend toward the more sporty extra-curricular activities. No longer did the team "sports" apply only to athletes. It became associat- ed with a wide variety of people - young and old, teachers, and students. MHS shared in many popular fads, in- cluding jogging. Runners came from near and far to run the "Murrah Mile," and students running laps around the school became a familiar sight. The Ross Barnett reservoir was a popular watering hole for Mustangs who enjoyed sailing, skiing, and swimming, night and day. The sports "bug" caught on quickly and became an integral part of student life. Physical fit- ness was definitely a goal attained by many Murrahites through personal enjoy- ment and participation. l l4f Personal Sports The Metropolitan Opera Presents: Eddy Waller pre- pares to serve while vigorously exercising his vocal cords.

It is people who lend character to their environment, and people who made MHS what it is -- a place where those from different communities and cultures meet and mingle, blend, clash and co-exist. Murrah encompassed many types, those who came to learn, those who came to socialize, and those who came merely to "congregate in the toilets." These people, wherever they went, or whatever they accomplished, in their own way declared MHS is Still the One! - - gs' M F Where were you in '79?

"This school year has been a very positive and cooperative one," he said. "Teachers have been serious and it has been one of the better years Murrah has had with students and teachers." A tougher attendance policy and a more strictly enforced procedure concerning class-cutting kept more students in class. The school attendance policy limited pu- pils to nine absentees per term. If this number was exceeded, no grades were is- sued that term. A 'left-over' cut list chan- neled those who had not cleared the regu- lar cut list directly to the principal's office. Due to this, the list was gradually reduced. With the aid of the PTSA, a special stu- dent smoking area was provided outside the building. K M 1 M3-. mx ' W 3 , ,ew -.

This place is drab!', It was the last week of duty for teachers. Grades were averaged and few items remained to be done. For the first time in several years the coke machine had made a profit. A committee, headed by Barbara Mas- sey priced air conditioners. Sears had the best buy, and delivery was promised the following Monday. There was enough money left over for paint, and several energetic teachers, led by Jon Robbins and Carol Roulette, donated rollers and a lot of elbow grease. A dilemma arose over what color to cover the green walls with, and after many samples brought by Joan Bat were viewed, a conventional white was chosen. The furniture was removed, and under the scrutiny of Karen Framer and Joan Bat, scrubbed with the help of several students. The windows were cleaned by Linda Hardy and Phil Lowe. Other painters were Jim Bar- field, Kay Baines, John Stevens, Mary Jackson, and Dee Ball. Al- though amateurs, the painters took their job seriously, putting on two coats with a minimum of spillage. The job was not all work, they took several breaks, including a luncheon trek to the Mayflower Cafe. It had been hoped that the air conditioner would be installed in time to cool the painters. Harold Moman put in the wiring, but the coveted machine did not arrive until the last day of duty was over. The lounge was so appeal- ing, some teachers found it hard to leave.

Where's if259? Have I missed my bus? Hey, look, I see it. It's way down there. C'mon!,' Sound familiar? The majority of the student body traveled to school aboard a yel- low schoolhbus. A new state law pro- vided transportation to students liv- ing more than a mile from school. This changed the MHS bus popula- tion from 7 to 17. In some cases, the bus situations appeared ridiculous. While some buses had three or four riders, others had standing room on y the Bus Faculty members were assigned bus duty before and after school, and were reminded via the P.A. system if they failed to show up. Many teach- ers sacrificed their assigned parking spaces to no-parking signs because the buses needed more turning room. Sixth period teachers got in trouble for letting students leave classes ear- ly to go to their lockers before the buses left. However, this effort was not always successful - "Hey, wait for me!

The Gourmets Founded on the principle that eating is fun, the Murrah Faculty Gourmet Diners Club pigged out on the first Thursday of each month. The idea originated several years ago when cer- tain faculty members began eating lunch together during the first week of duty and the last week of school. They went to a different restaurant each time, and compared notes on the food, service, and atmosphere. After several 1 24 f Faculty years of lunching together, they decided on the dinner meetings. Being profes- sionals, reservations were made in the name of the group at the chosen eatery. From salad to dessert, critiques were made, and in some cases written down for the benefit of the proprietor. On several occasions, when certain items did not measure up to the accus- tomed expectations, they were sent back, and a notation was made. The group detected dirty lettuce at one es- tablishment, tea brewed in a coffee pot at another, Ca distinct coffee flavor en- suedj and vowed never to frequent one certain restaurant because the loud mu- sic gave them a headache. Membership was open to Murrah Faculty members and their spouses, with the only qualifications being a love of pigging out and a critical nature. rfbxivwv OL i Q AW Jim King Q Freddie Lee Philip A.

I am very proud of your achievement." Writ- ing congratulatory notes to the students she counseled was only one of the thoughtful acts enacted daily by Miss Pauline Carter. One of the few mem- bers of the staff who has been at Mur- rah since its opening in 1955, she was the Student Council sponsor for 17 years. For the last seven years, and presently, she has devoted all of her energies to counseling students. Al- though all of these students were not exceptional, they sometimes seemed to be because Miss Carter found and de- veloped what was best in each one. She arranged their schedules so that each would have the courses that were right for him, and pressed each to reach his potentials in all scholastic areas. She also guided them in college andfor ca- reer choices, and helped them find money to finance their educations after high school. If Miss Carter makes a promise, one can be sure it will be done - and done well.

Who, me?" Hyper- tension, extreme pressure on the inside of the arterial walls, is the leading cause of strokes, congestive heart failure, and kidney failure. More than 670,000 peo- ple die from heart attack in the United States every year. A leading factor in these deaths is high blood pressure. Since there are seldom any symptoms, it is important to have periodic blood pressure checks. The Physical Educa- tion department arranged for the Mis- sissippi Chapter of the American Heart Association to screen 762 faculty mem- bers and students on November 29 and 30. Elevated blood pressure was detect- ed in 21 females and 65 males, who were checked again after two weeks, and urged to see a physician if their blood pressure remained high. Sgt. Paul H.

The Mustang wheelchair team, composed of Mur- rah coaches, several teachers, and Scott Rawlings, found this out when they were soundly defeated by the Free Wheelers, 32-4. A wheelchair basketball team, that is working to raise funds to establish recreational facilities for the physically handi- capped, the Free Wheelers are hop- ing to develop a wheelchair basket- ball league in the Jackson area. healers The MHS team tried hard to make the game worth the 504: admis- sion. During halftime, Donnell Allen challenged one of the Free Wheelers to a shoot-out. The competition was not as easy as Donnell expected, however, he would say he was just giving the guy a break. Scott Rawl- ings added a dash of excitement by attempting a dunk, but was penal- ized for jumping up out of his chair. It was definitely a fun-for all game.

Well . . . As sophomores, we yelled at all the pep rallies and won the Homecoming float competition. As juniors, we didn't really see the point of being spirited. When we became seniors, it was kind of hard to get fired up again and remember that we had to be the leaders. We painted signs for pep rallies C'Almost heaven, so divine - we're the Class of ,79!"J, but it was a long time before we stopped talking about how the water tower needed painting and did it. But once that was done, we could all sit back and be proud, As the year went on and Graduation came closer and closer, we got more and more excited. We had senior parties, a senior breakfast, and after Graduation, a senior trip. Some were a little afraid of leaving home next fall, so we savored our senior year that much more. And by the end of the year, some people were already planning our 10th class reunion!

Shout those words in a crowded hall of Murrah, and at least half a dozen heads will turn. While "Slick" may be the most common nickname at MHS, it is by no means the only one.

Some nicknames are merely a shortened form of the proper name - for instance, "Sweet V" fVeronica Harrisonj, "Luc" fBernard Lucasj, "M.P." fMary Powel Jabaleyj, and "Cham', QCarneal Chamblissj. Other refer to some personal trait: "Little Bit" QEvelyn Hatchett - and othersj, "Wide Load" CD, "Spacewoman" and "Hair- dol' CDebbie Bermanj, and "Chief" fMr. Merrittj.

The towels were useful in wiping perspiration off Misses or football play- ers during the games. But - what about spirit? The sophomores showed it, the juniors tried, and the class of '79 was divine. The epitome of spirit was Mr. Hall. Every pep rally was brought to a climax by his appearance. The classes crouched down, rolled their arms, and chanted, "Woop, woop, woop', until Mr. Hall pointed to them. Then everyone went wild - screaming at the tops of their lungs. The "true blue spirit', was ultimately ex- pressed at this time whether it was support for the foot- ball team or the spirit of competition.

We need to make a few necessary announcements at this time. Excuse the in- convenience, but we'll try to make these as brief as possible, so as not to interrupt your classes more than is absolutely necessary . . ." As the voice droned on, students taking tests looked up in mild irritation, Mrs. Tramel looked exasperated and tried to continue teachingg Mrs. Weathers shook her fist at the speaker, and Mr. Lowe muttered a few words under his breath and broke off his lecture. Ten minutes later, the voice ended, but few noticed. Students had been talking, tuning out the squawk box altogether. However, a few listened: "When was that Quill SL Scroll meeting? What day does Miss clinic start? Did he say a ring had been found? Dunno. You should've listened to the announcementsli' How else were you going to retrieve a lost item, or publicize an event? There was also the group who applauded when announcements began because it meant a reprieve from the voice of their teacher.

Grades were coming outg meaning, for some, angry parents and a possi- ble conference with the counselor. Many students knew in advance what they would make, but there was still a slight uncertainty, the fear of some nasty suprise, that was not dis- sipated until the grades were in hand. In general, however, students "passed because they passed, and failed because they failed." Of course, parents could not always ac- cept this simple fact of lifeg there- fore, when report cards were re- ceived, visions of stormy scenes at home often overshadowed the quiet smiles of exultation and by the next day, the school was peaceful once again and the tense mood was almost forgotten - except by the students who were grounded. l44 Senior l ,,,,,,,,..t 'WWW' , SKF' gy, .,.., F? ........-0-..

"Get down."'Thc Horse performs for the homecom- ing court to its theme song, "The Horse." "Here comes the Horse! Watch it get down!" What would Murrah be without that famed inspirer of spirit, that noble beast that pranced its way into the hearts of all the Mustangs! , The Horse was born during the 1975- 76 :football season when juniors Chuck Rainey and George Ritter introduced the character as part of a skit during a pep rally. There was such an over- whelming response by the student body that the Horse began traveling to some of the football games. The Horse soon became a permanent he Horse fixture at Newell Field. Juniors Jay Wilson and Billy Beard were the seond pair to inhabit the Horse. They almost "killed" it when they inadvertently left its head in Biloxi after a football game. But, a new head was made for the 1977- 78 season, and the school mascot was saved. Seniors Dent Anglin and Jerry Farr were the next to wear the blue and silver silks of The Horse. During their reign, the fame of The Horse grew fur- ther. The most recent occupants of the Horse were Seniors Robert Smith and Houston Wells. They added a new di- mension to The Horse's talent. When the band struck up "Disco Inferno" in the pep rally, they not only pranced but also danced, much to the satisfaction of their audience. During the 1978-79 school year, the extent of the Horse's activity grew to include attendance at all football and many basketball games, and the mascot has become widely known. Most Mustangs would agree that Murrah would not be the same without that noble beast, The Horse. Seniors f l 47 Juniors Caught in the middle. As juniors, we couldn't use the excuse of being new, but neither were we battle-weary veterans who deserved a rest. We had so many things to do: make Valentine's Day flowers, plan the prom, take the PSAT, and the ACT. As we learned the priveleges of life in high school, we sometimes realized that the teachers and the seniors were looking at us as they tried to decide who would be the leaders next year. But we didn't think about respondbuny too rnuch - that would come. Right now, we were too busy having fun and being free from the social stigma of being "slopmores" - we could call others by the name we hated last year. And if we were sometimes impatient for our final year of high school, we were usu- aHy reahsdc enough to know than when the time came, we would be the Seniors of 1980!

German deli- cacies gave the appropriate atmo- sphere to the fall banquet at which new members were initiated. In spring, the club shared a banquet with the other language depart- ments, highlighted by the food and drink of different nationalities. In class, members of the German Club studied the basic structure and usage of the German language and learned excellent German poetry. In Mr. Lowe's words, "The German Club is a good cultural outlet for the stu- dents in the study of a language. The student often does not receive in- struction in the customs of the peo- ple who speak it." Juniorsfl51 hute . huts. On Saturday, October 14, Sammy Shute, a member of the junior class and the starting wide receiver for the football team, went to Oxford for Ole Miss's Homecoming. After the game, he was struck by a car while crossing a street on campus. As a result of the accident, Sammy suf- fered multiple fractures in both legs and spent seven weeks in Memphis Baptist Memorial Hospital. The weekend after the accident, Home- coming '78 was dedicated to him. There was a tumultuous pep rally Friday morning and an exciting and suspenseful game that night. The score was 14-14 at the end of the allotted time, the scene was set for an overtime playoff. Murrah won the toss and the first scoring opportuni- ty. Just before going onto the field for the final series of play, the team huddled and began chanting, "Shute - Shute - Shute!" Simultaneously, the stadium vibrated with a roar from the stands: "Sammy - Sam- my!" The team ran onto the field with spirit re-kindled to win for Sam- my. The offense scored on the first playg the Mustang defense did its part by intercepting Greenwood's in- tended touchdown pass to seal the 20-14 victory. The winning game ball was autographed by all the foot- ball squad members and taken to Sammy in Memphis. The football game on October 20, 1978, was one of the most emotional victories ever won by a Mustang team -- in honor of a fellow player, student, and friend. "Don't take away my gusto . . . "Sammy Shute holds on tight to his football autographed by teammates. Time out. Sammy Shute pauses to catch his breath Q before re-entering the first game ofthe season. ' l52fJuniors lr. .4 A 5 Q.

This was the lunch served daily to over 800 students who were unable to procure lunch passes or force Mama to fix a sack lunch. The lunchroom served many purposes other than that of feeding the hungry. It was a common meeting ground for those interested in more than nourishment for the body, a place to exchange ideas, make dates, and throw food. Life in the lunchroom was always varied and exciting. Small scale food wars were known to break out daily, as well as real fights over rolls or who had saved who a seat. The cafeteria was the place, fourth period was the time, bedlam was the watchword.

The climax of Career Emphasis Week, the event was spon- sored by the Assembly Committee and organized by Cathye Ross and Kenta Richardson. The Mississippi Loan As- sociation, University Medical Center, the Baptist Hospital, Packard Electric Eompany, and Trailways Bus Company were a few of the Jackson area organi- zations that arranged displays in the gym and distributed pamphlets and bumper stickers to the student body. One focus of interest was the Jackson Police Department's booth, which dis- played departmental guns, bullet-proof glass, and other law-enforcement equipment. The counselors and the Assembly Committee began preparing for the Carnival of Careers weeks in advance, and agreed that it fulfilled its purpose of exposing students to the various edu- cational and vocational opportunities available to them. -a-,,.'-I-"""""' 'V F ,,'3..

The first thing that came to mind when toilet paper was mentioned, was the lack of it in the school restrooms. Since there was no known paper shortage, evidently the mis- use of the item by a few students caused the majority to go without. Some students snuck into the teacher's restrooms for a few sheets, but even this method did not always insure success.

Y, , When the days grew balmy and spring fever hit, there was a mass exo- dus from Murrah High to Riverside "High", with excuses ranging from education to just plain fun. Magister Barfield often took his Latin classes to the parkis Nature Trail, where they learned the Latin names of foliage, and Mrs. Hardy's fourth period American History class had a "colonial picnic" as part of Lee Wallace's term paper on colonial cooking. The National Honor Society also visited Riverside, as did the Murrah Singers, and the park was once again honored as the site of the William Belton Murrah Day picnic. On week- ends and after school, students flocked to Riverside to fly kites, throw frisbees, picnic, and just socialize. During sum- mer days, Riverside became Murrah's surrogate as Misses and cheerleaders met daily for practice - as promptly as if they were meeting class, and school was in session. Riverside Park - a place to go, just a mile down the road, to enjoy a moment or two away from the everyday routine of school.

Many of its elements were present in 'other years, but nev- er in the combination that made 1978-79 unique. Murrah has always had National Mer- it Finalists, and that tradition remained unbroken. Two times in history, 1962 and 1979, the basketball team won the District Six title and played in the state tourna- ment. The soccer team gained the support of the student body and fought its way to be- come city champs. Murrah was once again invited to com- pete in the Challenge Bowl. REWRITE!
