S. 74 Q SCHOOL 1981 - 1982 Dear Boys and Girls, It gives me a great deal of pleasure to greet you in this, your own issue of Insights. My congratulations to you and to your parents on your first school graduation. The theme of your yearbook, " Television " , is certainly a timely and appropriate one. For as much as your schooling has served to educate and inform you, television has, in all likelihood, done even more to make you aware of your environment. It has shown you the four corners of the earth, the world beneath the seas and the daily happenings in the capitals and seats of power on every continent. Television has made you, in many ways, citizens of the world. We can no longer say, " I didn ' t know. " Television has made us cognizant of every problem of mankind: hunger, oppression, sickness and the decay of our natural resources. Such knowledge brings with it responsibility. This responsibility should not be viewed as a burden, but rather as an opportunity to live our lives fully, to share in the work of mankind, to help make our world a better place in which to live. It encourages us, almost forces us, to the outer limits of our potential, to show our creativity and to take a leadership position rather than sit back and " let (leorge do it. " Do not turn your backs on these opportunities, on these responsibilities. They will enrich your lives and make them more fulfilling. If television can bring this about, it will have served a useful function. The best of good luck to you in the future.

Nothing to do Nothing to see And absolutely nothing good on TV HOME MOVIES By Mark Alleyne 7-5 One day in our old apartment, me and my brother Scott were in our cribs. Scott was three and I was four. We were upstairs alone. We found some vaseline and baby powder. I put vaseline all over my body. Scott did the same. He started to put powder over it and I did the same. I fell out of my crib and my mother came running up to see what all the noise was. She looked at Scott. She looked at me. She was so mad she didn ' t know what to do! So she got out the movie camera and she made home movies! I can still remember that day. 3 V THE FAMILY GATHERING By Sonia Lees 8-2 The TV clicked on Before long the family gathered Mom, Dad, me and my brother Ron We waited in silence No picture appeared The television was broken. My dad gave it a bang Mom gave it a kick I felt myself getting terribly sick What could we do without the TV? We decided that we would sit around and joke The night that the television broke. THE NIGHT THE TV BROKE By Janet Gottlieb 8-1 The room was dark, the air was still And not a word was spoken. I sat there staring, almost ill, The TV set was broken! I thought, " Oh, no, what can I do? " I paced and paced the floor. In fifteen minutes my favorite show Would be on Channel Four! " I know, I ' ll call the fix-it shop They ' ll fix it, there ' s no doubt. " But the repairman said those awful words, " I ' ll have to take it out! " I guess there ' s not much I can do But I really do miss Channel Two. And wait I will, though I ' m in pain, Until my set is home again. A TV TRAGEDY By Michael Bujold 8-1 One night, while watching my favorite show, Something happened to the TV ' s glow. I tried turning it off and changing the channel, I even tried kicking the control panel! I yelled for my mother but she wasn ' t there, I yelled really loud but no one could hear. I thought my TV was no good at all, Then I noticed that the plug was out of the wall! 33 Life is... By Ileana Paiz 8-2 Life is a soap opera you see with problems and more problems just waiting to be solved. When you think you ' re reaching the end you ' ve really just begun. And though it may seem hard you must struggle and fight. In this life, there is much to be learned. We all have hopes and aspirations to fulfill but first we must learn to earn what we need. Nothing is free. Though it may be difficult the reward is great. Whatever you invest in life you get back. Unfortunately, many of us realize this too late when nothing can be done. Life is a soap opera you see. Life is a Soap Opera By Valerie dayman 6-2 As the Days of Our lives go by All My Children have an appointment with The Doctors. There I was walking through General Hospital in Dallas, Texas looking for The Doctors. The children were fidgeting. Oh, I thought to myself, The Young And The Restless. We finally saw The Doctors. They told me the truth about Ryan ' s Hope. He had none! The Doctors told me that As The World Turns, Ryan will live in Another World. How could The Doctors say that? Even if Ryan has One Life To Live, does it have to end before his twentiety birthday? How can they say I must Search For Tomorrow? How can they say they may never find a cure? There I was looking out into The Edge Of Night. How could I tell my husband our Dynasty was ending? I had to find Ryan ' s Guiding Light. The Doctors told us to go to a Dr. McClain. His office was on Flamingo Road. Tests were taken. Ryan was hospitalized near Falcon Crest. A day later, he died. Our Dynasty had ended. We moved to King ' s Crossing to begin again. 34 ...a Soap Opera By Thelma Ross 8-4 Their eyes met. It was love at first sight. Kenny reached for Thelma and started to kiss her. Somehow he just couldn ' t help himself. They had just met at the basketball game. They exchanged telephone numbers. Even though they went to different schools, that didn ' t change their love for each other. After school they would meet on the side of Mays and walk the Avenue hand in hand. Then, he would walk her to her bus and they ' d kiss good-bye. Their love was made in heaven. Then one day he picked her up after school in his Mercedes and took her to a nice restaurant for dinner. He asked her to marry him. She accepted. They planned a June wedding. He bought her a diamond. After they were married, he took her to Paris for their honeymoon. They had a wonderful time. After the honeymoon, they returned to their home in New York where they lived happily ever after. The Days of Our Lives By Patty Paralemos 8-2 As I sit back and remember these past three years at I.S. 74 I ' ve had many Good Times. Even though there was alot of hard work, I took it One Day At A Time. I met so many new friends that once in a while it became Too Close For Comfort. We began to feel like The Brady Bunch. We had some fun too. We played Name That Tune in muisic. My favorite city became Dallas and we learned about the many different forms of Life On Earth in science; as well as The Facts Of Life. Mrs. Kurchin ' s plays were always the best. I especially liked the play that took place in a General Hospital. The Doctors were trying to figure out who murdered an innocent woman. Mrs. Krugman helped to make these three years even more pleasurable. She shed a Guiding Light on all my problems and helped me to solve them. All three years in I.S. 74 have been Happy Days. We only have One Life To Live and As The World Turns we must Search For Tomorrow and a better future. 35 The Victim ' By John Palazzolo Have you ever been at the feet of a mad-man - bound and gagged - your fate determined by a twisted blood-thirsty mind? It ' s a horror. A horror that just has to be released. The events of that night will get out. For now, finally, the story will be told. I was home alone that night. The house was dark and still. The wind-driven rain was blowing against the windows, making a loud tapping sound. Soon the storm started to rage. The wind howled in the trees. Suddenly, I heard a scream. It couldn ' t have been, I told myself. But it was. I heard it with my own ears. I put on my coat and ventured outside. The rain bit at my face. The wind threw me from side to side. As I advanced through the darkness, I tripped over a large object. Now on my knees, I slowly looked up. The street light shined on a man. It was a huge muscular man with ghostly eyes and a rigid beard. I slowly crawled from the man as he gave a spine-chilling laugh. I got up and ran, slipping on the slick pavement, I fell and twisted my ankle. But I had to keep on moving. Slowly I hobbled, half dragging my lame leg behind me. I heard the man ' s footsteps coming closer and closer. When I reached the door I dragged myself in my house. I bolted the door and locked the windows. At last I was safe. I started for the phone. " Hello, police? There ' s a killer outside my door! Please come! " I pleaded. " Please help me! " In the corner of my eye I saw the killer through the window. " Help me!! Please help me!! I ' m at 53-22 Maple Drive. Help! " My pursuer took a flying leap through my large patio window. He grabbed the phone, ripping it from the wall, and threw it across the room. I screamed and yelled at the top of my lungs. He grabbed me by the neck and squeezed until I was half suffocated. The killer then threw me over his shoulder and dumped me on the floor. He savagely ripped off his shirt, tearing it into pieces. He tied my hands and feet and gagged me. The madman frantically searched through the kitchen drawers for something. To my horror, he took out a large meat cleaver. Laughing he slowly approached. One step at a time. The killer came closer and closer. I squirmed. I felt helpless. As the man came nearer I could feel his hot breath on my neck. He knelt down beside me. The man waved the cl eaver at my face. My heart was pounding. I was in a cold sweat. He brushed the blade against my neck. I squirmed in pain. I felt like a worm about to be used as bait. He laughed, looked at me straight in the eyes, and raised the cleaver. I heard sirens in the distance. Was it true? Was it my imagination? It couldn ' t have been. My madman heard it too. He looked at me and gave a sneering growl. As the siren came closer he dropped his weapon and jumped through the window -out into the rain. The killer has left my home, but he is still on the loose. He ' s still out there, somewhere, waiting for the next rainy night. Waiting for someone to be along. Waiting for you. There are many programs on television that suggest acts of violence such as this. Those shows reach young children and people who may be influenced by them. These programs may be thrilling and entertaining for us, but for some people, these shows motivate them to commit their own acts of violence. 36 Take Two By Patty Paralemos 8-2 It was the day before my thirteenth birthday. I was in a great mood. The sun was shining brightly. I was up early that morning to see Lady Diane marry Prince Charles. That evening I was sitting outside with my friends. The stars were shining brightly. I wished on the first star I saw. I wished that my birthday would be great and that my party would be a success. We were sitting on the steps of my friends house talking about the party, when suddenly Lori fell backwards off the stoop! Luckily, I was there to break her fall. She escaped without a scratch. I started to have pains in my left shoulder. I thought it was nothing but then it really began to hurt and I decided to go home. My mother was worried since I could hardly move my left arm. My father told me to sleep on it and if it still hurt in the morning we would go to the hospital. So, taking his advice, I went to sleep. The next morning, my birthday, I awoke early. I couldn ' t even move. My whole body hurt. So, we went to the Emergency Room at Booth Memorial Hospital. The nurse filled out the insurance forms. She gave me a peculiar look when I told her the day of my birth. When my shoulder was finally ex-rayed, the doctors found that I had cracked my collarbone! I had to wear a brace on my shoulder for a month! I couldn ' t go swimming for the rest of the summer. I had to cancel my party. " Cut! " the director cried. " What kind of joyful birthday scene is this? Start it all over... Take two! It was the day before my thirteenth birthday... Skip Stevenson, " Real People " c o George Schlatter Productions 8321 Beverly Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90048 Dear Mr. Stevenson: I am an eighth-grader attending a New York City Public School. For a project for my school yearbook, I have decided to try to arrange an interview with my favorite television personality. For this reason, I am writing to you.

Here and now 1 will say, What happened to me along the way. The TV was turned to a different channel, A channel that was strange and new. 1 quickly dashed to the TV panel. To adjust the color and change the hue. A large yellow bird appeared on the screen, He was very gentle not at all mean. It was a wonderful show and lured me to watch more I was glued to the TV until my eyes were sore. Everyday at that time I watched my TV And even today I have to see, Big Bird • you have changed my life so. When I ' m one hundred - I ' ll still watch your show! By David Slotnick 8-2 I met him once during a dark, stormy night, He said, " How are you? " , I said, " I ' m alright. He said, " I ' m lost. " I said, " Me too! " We decided to see what we could do. All through this dark and dreary eve, Through the streets we did weave. We walked down an alley, We heard a sound. It was Kermit the Frog who we had found! He tried to help us, but to no avail. And we were led to a longer trail. He found his home, but I couldn ' t find mine, And now I live on Sesame Street and Vine. tJr R rv » ' 38 CktCi JlCU£Lte t J An Interview With Mr. Kreizman By Stefanie Szumilo 8-1 Reporter: Do you enjoy watching TV? Mr. Kreizman: Sometimes, it really depends on the show. Reporter: About how many hours per day do you spend watching TV? Mr. Kreizman: All in all, about an hour. Reporter: Do you think TV is worthwhile? Mr. Kreizman: I think that very few programs today are of any real value. Reporter: How do you feel about soap operas? Mr. Kreizman: I think that they are very unrealistic. For instance, a person can have a fatal disease and have only six months to live, and about eleven years later, he has only five months to live. Reporter: How about sports coverage? Mr. Kreizman: The high school and college sports are good, but I can ' t see giving these " professionals " a half a million dollars each year. Most of them don ' t earn it. Reporter: What do you think about violence on TV? Mr. Kreizman: Although any violence, whether on TV or not, isn ' t good, I ' d rather see it on television than in real life. The violence I ' d like to see is everyone throwing their TVs out the window! Reporter: What is your view of explicit language on TV? Mr. Kreizman: There really is no reason to limit the language on TV. You hear it anywhere you go anyway. Reporter: How do you feel about commercials? Mr. Kreizman: I believe they are the greatest insult to human intelligence. I can ' t understand why grown men and women want to squeeze toilet paper. Reporter: How does TV differ in France? Mr. Kreizman: In France they only have about three or four channels. Each channel has limited shows and very few commercials. Reporter: Do you think TV is good for kids? Mr. Kreizman: I think it ' s pathetic to have these youngsters subjected to the torture of sitting in front of a 19 " BOOB TUBE! 39 You Asked For It aliUMJuuA, fyu ' J IE 1 12 2009 155500 1 6 00
