August issues of the local newspaper
were filled with reports of scholarship win-
ners, Harris poll ratings, and the process of
selecting a new superintendent. As the first
day of school approached registration
times, appointments for pictures, and prac-
tice times for activities were publicized.
The selection of a new superintendent,
Charles Bradberry made prominent
headlines. Mr. Bradberry attended high
school in Nacogdoches, Texas. He finished
second in his class and attended college at
North Texas State and the University of
Wyoming. Mr. Bradberry has been involv-
ed with education for sixteen years, seven
years as a superintendent. Mr. Bradberry
made himself visible by being involved in
pep rallies, attending football games, and
Good deeds are done by students too! During the
halftime intermission, band members shake hands
with the elderly people from local nursing homes.
Student council arranged for these people to attend
the football games as a part of the Golden Unicorn

New sights around school included a
salad bar and new outfits for the Unicorn
Handlers. The salad bar offered fresh let-

The local newspaper made it impossible
to ignore information about the start of a
new year. Yes, August 29 came fast, but
students were back in the routine of things
quickly. The student council began
organizing the Golden Unicorn project, so
that this activity could get into full swing
for the first football game. There was a lot

Everybody takes part! Not only did
students and faculty members become
involved in school activities this year,
but parents and local businesses took
an active part in supporting the
Unicorns. From waiting in line for
tickets at seven o'clock in the morning
to displaying signs with spirit phrases
in front of SIOICS to cheering the team
on to victory, the community showed
its spirit and support for the Unicorns.

Each school year is different
from the years in the past and
the years to come. From stu-
dent life to athletics, changes
make each year more signifi-
cant and special than the year
before. Although some changes
went relatively unnoticed, most
were important enough to
make the headlines of the local
Football made the news ear-
ly in the year with a second
place ranking for the team in
4A schools by the Harris poll.
As the season progressed, the
Unicorns' tie with Gonzales
moved the ranking to fifth and
the loss to Fredericksburg mov-
ed the team to ninth in the
state. But the change in rank-
ings did not affect the
Unicorns' playing ability as
they moved into the play-offs
as expected. However, the loss
to the Bay City Blackcats in
the semi-finals ended the
season for the Unicorns making
the final ranking third in the
The patrons of the school
district began showing their
support of the school system
early in the year. Along with
students and faculty members,
parents and local businesses
visibly supported school ac-
tivities and boosted school
spirit. Local businesses such as
Walker's Fried Chicken, Webb
Lube Center, and Robar's
showed their support of the
Unicorns by displaying dif-
ferent signs with spirit phrases
in front of their stores.
Through attendance at home
football games, local fans
showed their support of the
Unicorns to a tune of
337,921.00 From waiting in
line for football tickets at seven
o'clock in the morning to buy-
ing t-shirts with Unicorn

on and off the field or court.
Changes were made to im-
prove the quality of the school.
Parking permits, which gave
the office an accurate record of
cars belonging on campus,
were new to the students. The
permits were issued to aid the
administration in contacting
students who had car problems
such as lights left on,
burglaries, and gas leaks. In
conjunction with the second
year of implementing the snif-
fer dog program, the permits
enabled the administration to
quietly get students out of class
if an incident involving their
cars occurred. The sniffer dog
program was considered an
"insurance policy" to keep the
campus drug free, however, the
number of campus visits were

oxes, desks, chairs, and filing
cabinets were stacked in the gym for the
summer. The Environmental Health
Protection Agency said that the asbestos
on the ceilings in the school was
endangering the health of those in the
building and mandated that the ceilings be
scraped down and redone with other
materials. This project was completed just
before school started. The teachers had the
new task of moving back into the
classrooms to get ready for the new school
The freshmen were welcomed to high
school by principal John Turman and
assistant principal Charles Engler at
Freshmen Orientation. The new student
body president, Chris Lacy, urged the
freshmen to become involved in as many
school organizations as possible. With over
eighty percent of the student body active in
extra-curricular activities, freshmen found
it easy to become involved in something.
As usual the start of athletic practices
and band practices signaled the beginning
of the school year. Unicorn volleyball was
expected to have a rebuilding season after
losing five seniors, the football team
anticipated an even better season than the
previous year, and the band had high
expectations for top rankings at the state
marching contest. A joint effort aided in
building a positive attitude toward the
school, faculty and administration.
School had started, but Dena Dietert and Wendy
Langabeer worked on the weekends as gate keepers at
the local tourist attraction, The Tube Chute.
Friday morning practices with the band give the
Monoceras a chance to polish up their halftime per-
formance. Linda Pate, Wendy Langabeer, Shelley
Baros, Tracy FranzwCaptain, and Sally de Leon
wait for the whistle to blow so they can march. Tracy

Student body president, Chris Lacy, keeps the
students informed of events taking place in the school
and community by reading the daily announcements.
n the news this morningf' sounded
the announcer's voice, "there are some
reports on both good and bad happenings."
Overseas, the Russians did not approve of
the U.S. Marines protecting non-
communist countries from communist
aggression. The natives of Lebanon did not
appreciate the American involvement and
displayed their disapproval through
opening fire on our troops. In America,
overseas involvement was a touchy subject
with the young adults. They feared that
their immediate tomorrows might be spent
fighting for their freedom.
On the homefront, news included higher
local telephone rates, courtesy of the split
in the Bell Telephone Company. Another
topic of conversation was the massi'
number of new companies offering low'
long-distance rates. On the darker side -
the news scene, an American athlete wa
found to have been using steroids at tl
Pan-American Games. After th:
discovery, other team members hasti
fled, without comment as to the reason 1
their departures. It was widely believe
that they too were using steroids.

lark White felt that some Texas school
istricts were graduating illiterate
udents. He assembled a committee, "the
lue Ribbon Committee on Educationv,
ith H. Ross Perot as the chairman to
:ad the investigation of the schools. A
.ain concern of the group was that ex-
acurricular activities were taking too
,uch away from academic time. A bill
as proposed that would require U.I.L.
participants to be passing four academic
courses, instead of three. Mr. Perot in-
dividually proposed that LQ extracur-
ricular activities take place before or after
school hours. This would entail having -:Q
athletic, band, drama, and similiar ac-
tivities practice and compete outside of the
normal school day.
"That,s the significant news of the day,"
summed up the announcer. "Tune in later
when we will update this information and
bring you the new headlines concerning
the world around you."
Bandman makes headlines. The Texas Music
Educators' Association selected Dennis Hartman for

current events-l l
anted: high school females,
beautiful, talented, intelligent, and well-
rounded students to be ambassadors of
good will for New Braunfels. These were
part of the requirements set by the Comal
County Fair Association, Lambda Psi
Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, and the senior
class as candidates were recruited for Fair
Queen, Junior Miss, and homecoming
Many hours were spent at the Canyon
High School commons as 33 junior girls
anticipated the big event, the Comal
County Fair Queen Contest. An afternoon
of personal interviews and tiring rehearsals
preceded the public performance. Each
candidate expressed their feelings on how
the Comal County Fair benefited New
Braunfels. On the night of September 18,
the curious audience awaited the final
announcement. Carolyn Fey was crowned
Fair Queen, Tammi Seidel, princess, and
Kay Knippa, duchess.
In another local contest, girls competed
for the title of New Braunfels Junior Miss.
Again many hours were spent at the Civic
Center practicing talent, getting the steps

Next, homecoming week brought on the
traditional festivities with the usual
petitions being signed. The student body
voted on the four candidates who were
selected by the senior class. Anne
Schumann and Jean Marie Sterling were
crowned duchesses, Tracy Moore-
princess, and Michelle Jaramillo was
crowned homecoming queen.

igning petitions, selling mums,

that centered around homecoming.
Petitions for homecoming queen were
circulated by hopeful senior girls.
Although a conflict over false signatures
arose as the first set of petitions were
returned, nine correctly completed
petitions were returned after the second set
was issued. These nominees were reduced
to four finalists by the vote of the senior
class. The entire student body then voted
on the final placement. Anne Schumann

breakfast and bonfire. On the morning of
the bonfire, seniors gathered at Cypress
Bend Park, the bonfire sight, where they
were served breakfast. The break was
welcomed by those students who had
slaved all night on the bonfire. After
breakfast, work began once again only to
be halted when an accident occurred. As
Julie Clonts was riding atop of some brush
being trucked back to the bonfire sight, she
and the brush were blown off the truck by
a gust of wind. She was rushed to the
hospital by ambulance where it was
determined that she had sustained
multiple skull fractures, bruises, and cuts.
Julie was transferred to the Methodist
Hospital in San Antonio for further
The bonfire was cancelled as a result of
a general consensus of the students,
administration and city officials. Seniors
were asked to return to school, if they
wished, where they could receive updated
information about Julie's condition.
Instead of joining hands in a spirit ring
encircling the bonfire, students joined their
hands and hearts in prayer for Julie during
a candlelight prayer service in front of
school. "It was tragic that the accident
happened, but it left the students,
especially the seniors, with a certain
closeness that had never existed,"
commented Mr. Charles Engler, vice
The next evening, the football game and
homecoming activities were dedicated to
Julie. The new found bond was seen as the
students cheered the team on to a 31-0
victory over Lockhart. Even though there
was the traditional dance in the cafeteria,
most of the students flocked to Heidelburg
Halle where Fast Forward, a popular rock
group, was playing. Improvement in Julie's
condition, the victory, and the upbeat
music ended the week on a good note.

composed .2'Zn of the population of
New Braunfels. Even though the percen-
tage seemed small, the effects of the
youths' activities were apparent
Whether it was at the football games,
rest homes, or at businesses, students
made their presence known. Youths
found great satisfaction in performing
acts of charity with their peers. They par-
ticipated in a book drive to benefit the
Teen Connection, a food drive at
Thanksgiving, the Jaycees' Toys for Tots
drive, a blood drive, and the Golden
Unicorn Project. Students also collected
donations for Spina Bifida, American
Heart Association, American Cancer
Society, Muscular Dystrophy, Easter
Seals, and March of Dimes. Students
also helped build houses for low-income
families, participated in a Rent-a-Kid
project, visited with the residents at the
rest homes, worked in places of business
through the vocational programs, and hid
eggs for an Easter Egg Hunt at the First
Protestant Church Kindergarten. The
community showed its support by pur-
chasing animals and food items during
Queen of Hearts and the youth show and
booster certificates supporting Unicorn
athletics and band. The Lions' Club,
Rotary Club, American Legion, Gptimist
Club, and Elks Lodge contributed
scholarships and held banquets to show
their appreciation for the youth of the ci-
ty, as did the Greater New Braunfels
Arts Council, German-American Socie-
ty, Comal County Sheriff's Posse, New
Braunfels Educators, and Parent-
Teacher Association. The Masonic
Lodge, Knights of Columbus, Comal In-
dependent Men's Association, Order of
the Eagles, Woodmen of the World, and
Veterans of Foreign Wars also displayed
interest through providing banquets and
This interest proved to spark a working
and caring relationship between the
youth and the community. The students
realized that all adults were not "old
fuddy-duddies" who drove 20 mph in the
30 mph zone and always said "when I
was a kid I had to walk 10 miles to
school, barefooted in the snow." Finally,
the adults realized that all youths were
not "little brats" who drove 40 mph in
the 30 mph zone or who threw wild par-
ties with loud, corrupt rock-n-roll music.
Despite the bad, national publicity
young people were given concerning
suicide and drugs, local students'
achievements were constantly making
headlines and top news stories. The in-
volvement of the youth seemed to fill the
generation gap by providing services for
groups or individuals when there was a

hether or not there was a good
movie showing or there was a decent band
playing, students some how seemed to find
some source of entertainment. Many
students remained on campus after the
dismissal bell rang because of involvement
in extracurricular activities. Athletics,
band, and drama practices occupied many
hours. But there was always time for the
For students, "fun things" included
"cruising, town, movies, dances, concerts,
toilet papering houses, trips, and parties.
But there was one obstacle in the way, the
lack of funds. "Cruising" town took gas
and gas took money. Many of the youths
avoided this expense by congregating at
Sonic Drive-In. Movies, dances, and
concerts cost approximately 54, SS, and
S15 for admission. This did not include the
cost of refreshments and souvenirs. The
price of toilet paper was also costly when it
took eighty rolls to do a "good" job on a
large yard. It was even more costly if the
paperers were caught. Culprits could be
charged with a class C misdemeanor and
be tried for criminal mischief.
Nevertheless, teens enjoyed papering
houses Qbecause it was daring and provided
something to doj. During Christmas and
spring break, many students took
advantage of the time off to go snow skiing
or to take a coast trip. This too proposed a
money problem. But it was overcome and
the students tood trips with their families,
churches, and friends. Back-to-school,
birthday, toga, victory, holiday, and
graduation parties were as popular as ever,
but entertaining meant spending money.
Refreshments were the chief expenses. A
six pack of drinks cost around 52.75, a bag
of chips cost around 75, and dips ranged
from around 5.90 to 52.00. The average
attendance was about forty people and cost
the host over S75. More elaborate parties
had one hundred or more in attendance. At
these parties, the cost was usually split
among several hosts and hostesses. Many
students discovered that they enjoyed
smaller get-togethers to watch V.H.S.
movies or cable television.
Although money was a large issue in a
teenager's after hours activities, the
amount of fun was a larger one. And even
though many felt there was absolutely
nothing to do, few teenagers sat at home
on Friday and Saturday nights.

by participating in three projects.
Each class felt that food sales during
lunch would be profitable. For the other
two projects, the seniors chose to have a
talent show and a car rally. The juniors
put all of their effort into a car wash.
The sophomores decided to have a car
wash funded by pledges and a dunking
booth. Other projects for the freshman
class were a raffle and the fishwalk.
Fun Night, with cake auctions and
class competition, provided another
source of revenue for classes and was
the highlight of the activities. Events
Clash of the Classes
such as the bat spin, scooter board race,
and egg-in-spoon race made for heated
but enjoyable class competition. During
the cake auction, the seniors auctioned
two cakes for a grand total of 5l040.00.
Fun Night proceeds totalled 52958.00
The cake auction brought in 52550.00
and ticket sales accounted for 5408.00.
The commercial art department
decorated the cafeteria using the theme,
"A Little Bit of Heaven." The corona-
tion took place on Saturday night with

It's the little things that count. Dana Mills and Linda

Starting From Square
T he date, April l4th, was set a year
in advance. Jay Eric and the
Blieder's Creek Band and the recreation
hall at Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Church were reserved seven months prior
to the date. The decorations were ordered
one month ahead of time. And then it
was time for the prom.
But where were the decorations? On
the day before the prom, the decorations
had yet to come in. Mrs. Francis Bond,
head junior class sponsor, and Christy
Atkins, decorations chairperson, kept
their cool and started from square one
again! They went from decorating house
to decorating house collecting what they
could to support the theme, "It,s A Small
World." By ll:00 Saturday morning, the
"new,' decorations arrived at Our Lady
of Perpetual Help Church. The
decorating was supposed to be finished by
one o'clock, but it took until 3:30 with
eleven people and three sponsors working
continuously. After sighs of relief,
everyone went home to relax and get
For those going out to eat before the
prom, the evening began at 6:00. After
the traditional pinning of the corsages
and boutonnieres, couples drove to San
Antonio for "fine" dining. Some of the
guys went so far as to rent limousines to
arrive in style. Following an enjoyable
meal it was back to New Braunfels for
the prom, which started at 8:00. Im-
mediately a line formed to get pictures
made by John Marshall. When the
dancers got thirsty or hungry, they went
to the refreshment table for fresh fruit,
desserts, and punch which were provided
by Plain or Fancy Caterers. The prom
evening was not an inexpensive one. The
average cost including tuxedo rental, din-
ner, and pictures was around Sl25, not to
mention the extra charge for those who
rented a limo.
When all was said and done, it seemed
as if the fuss over the decorations was for
nothing. After all the main purpose of the
prom was to have some fun and
fellowship in a formal way.

everyone as Jay Eric and the Blieder's Creek Band

Tennis anyone? Matti Mantynen uses his sixth period
tennis class to perfect his tennis skills.

A strange country with new, different
people, a year away from home, and a
host family awaited the four exchange
students. Matti Mantynen and Anssi
Hyvonen from Kuopio, Finland, Pierre
Mars from the Blaton Providence of
Hainaut in Belgium, and Maria Bayer
from Lindenberg, Bavaria, in West
Germany, arrived in New Braunfels "to
exchange culture and traditions."
All four agreed that school was much
easier here. In Finland, for example,
everyone was required to take two foreign
languages in addition to other required
courses. In Germany, students attended
school for thirteen years in order to be
accepted to a university. High schools in
Belgium were operated like colleges in
America. For example, English classes
met on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday,
and math classes met on Tuesday and
As exchange students with just six
classes, Matti and Anssi found extra time
to play tennis and attend school
sponsored activities. Both felt that more
emphasis was put on school sports in
American schools. In Finland, there were
no school organized sports or club
Maria enjoyed Wurstfest, Landa Park,
and reading the German monuments
around town. She also participated on the
cross-country and track teams.
Pierre became involved in school
activities through membership in
Campus Life and as a spectator at most
football, volleyball, and basketball
These students found America to be
very different in religion, driving
privileges, and girls wearing so much
make-up. Similarities were few, but all
agreed on the "great American
hospitality." Maria concluded, NI like it
here, but I'll be glad to get back home to
my family, but of course l'll miss all my
new found American friends."
"Exchanging culture and
customs" was their goal

Program, Jana Sanders was selected to
spend a year in The Netherlands in a
small village named Gorssel-Zutphen
near Apeldoorn. By applying to be an
exchange student, Jana agreed to
graduate a year later. However, this
was not a drawback to her. "It's going
to be worth graduating a year later,"
she stated positively. Another project of
the Rotary Club was honoring twenty
outstanding seniors. Although this
honor did not involve spending time
away from home, it did bring
recognition from the college board. This
meant that these seniors would have a
better chance of getting into the college
of their choice and possibly obtaining a

honor, but the adventurers were

Teen Connection was an ex-
tension of the high school. It
was funded by a state grant
which was acquired through
New Braunfels Independent
School District. All students at
Teen Connection previously at-
tended Comal county schools.
The students remained enrolled
in school and teachers recorded
grades reported by the center.
The courses that the students
were taking were continued at
the alternative school. The at-
tendance was recorded so that
each student that attended this
school contributed to the high
school daily attendance. The
student council became involv-
ed when two members, Carolyn

for college entrance and to
build confidence for further
usage of their educational
skills. Students had to be ap-
proved by the instructor to be
enrolled in the classes.
An important element in col-
lege preparation was the col-
lege entrance exam. These tests
challenged all knowledge gain-
ed in high school classes and
determined whether or not
students were accepted to a
particular college or received a
scholarship. Three students in
the graduating class who
scored high enough on the SAT
to be National Merit Scholars
were Dennis Hartman. Robert
Sarkozi, and Linda Wilson.
Most students who planned
to attend college began prepar-
ing early in the year. Decisions
as to the college or university
which would provide the
necessary elements to pursue
individual goals had to be
made. In addition to tuition,
other financial decisions had to
be considered: housing,
Students had a wide range of
electives and required courses
to choose from to ready
themselves for the future. Col-
lege preparation offered at the
high school level influenced in-
dividual decisions, helping each
student to choose the right
courses, the right college, the
right career, and the right
direction for a successful

Competing with Class
Competition was an element
that involved almost every stu-
dent in high school. Students
competed in academic and
skills contests, as well as,
U.I.L. competition involved
all steps of the academic scale.
The contest areas included
spelling, shorthand, ready
writing, science, typing,
number sense, journalism, and
a variety of speech events.
Foreign language students
competed in programs that em-
phasized the fluency of the
languages. Students competed
in areas including foreign
fashion design and oral essays
in a foreign language.
Academic competition was
an important element in every
class. Mrs. Sandra Schneider's
speech classes participated in
the Voice of Democracy con-
test which was an oratorical
contest sponsored by Veterans
of Foreign Wars. At the Na-
tional level, a 14,000 dollar
scholarship was made available
to the winner. Kenda Noah
won the local contest and her
tape was sent to district.
Mr. Johnny Kolacek's
students entered their art work
in a poster contest sponsored by
the New Braunfels Art
League. Winners of this com-
petition were first place Adrian
Baker, second place John
Pustka, and third place Susan
Scheffel. Each year, the Comal
County Youth Show entices
students to enter projects in
various categories such as
woods, metals, crafts, sewing,
baked goods, photography, and
Contests promoted competi-
tion between classmates.
Overall, competition in the
classroom inspired students to
work more diligently on extra
projects and helped them strive
for better grades.

Sets the Pace
The Unicorns set the pace
for a winning season with an
undefeated pre-district record.
The team shut out San Marcos,
29 to O, and Bastrop, 38 to 0.
They defeated the previously
unscored upon Georgetown
Eagles, 40 to 6. Seguin was the
most challenging of the pre-
district games. In the first
three minutes Seguin scored
fourteen points, leaving many
fans doubtful of a win. But the
Unicorns fought back with a
positive attitude to claim vic-
tory over the Matadors, 30to 20.
Along with physical training,
the coaches also had to train
the team mentally. Confidence
gave the edge to gain control
and dominate the opponents.
Pre-district did more than give
the team a 4 and 0 record, it set
the pace for the upcoming
Good sportsmanship and proper con-
duct are the Unicorns' best traits. They
demonstrate this at the Bastrop game
as the team captains, Tim Doty C57j,
Greg Bender fl6j, and Stoney
Williams 1295, meet in the middle of
the field to greet their opponents. John
Matney also served as a team captain.

' nicorns Struggle to Reach Pla off
District was an uphill strug-
gle. As stated by Coach Jim
Streety, "ln the middle of
district, the Unicorns just were
not playing their best." It was to
the Unicorns credit that they
were still good enough to win
and earn a spot in the playoffs.
The Unicorns played six
games with a 4-1-1 record in
district. The first game was
against Canyon. The Cougars
put up a good fight to keep the
offense from scoring, but they
were unsuccessful. Rick Purdy,
Paul Crawford, and David
deLemos scored against the
Cougars to put the Unicorns on
The team shined against the
Lockhart Lions. Greg Bender
attempted 14 passes and com-
pleted ll of them. Rick Purdy
played exceptionally well, scor-
ing four touchdowns. The
Unicorns won 31-0.
The hardest game the
Unicorns played was against
Gonzales. The Apaches
recovered three fumbles. The
only touchdown made was by
tight end, Mark Millet, with an
extra point made by Bobby
The Unicorns were trailing at
the half by three points in the
Kerrville game, but came back
in the second half with two
touchdowns. David deLemos
ran 26 yards for a touchdown,
and Paul Crawford pushed
across from two yards out for
another score. The final tally
The stormy weather at
Fredericksburg complicated the
team's game plan. The
Unicorns led at the halftime, 6-
0. The Billies came back in the
second half with a touchdown to
take the victory, 7-6.
The Unicorns clinched a spot
in the playoffs with a victory
over Hays. The Unicorns allow-
ed only four first downs-none
in the second half. Greg Bender
attempted 12 passes with 7
completions. Rick Purdy ran
133 yards for one touchdown.
David deLemos gained 85 yards
on one touchdown run, and
Brett Bingham ran 38 yards for
another touchdown. The game
The Unicorns were second in
district and eighth in state
before competing in the
playoffs. Team members Tim
Doty, Bryan Frassmann, Mark
Millet, Doug Campbell, and
John Matney were named to the
all district team. The uphill
struggle paid off and it was on
to the playoffs.
Many hours of rough practice dur-
ing the summer were required.

Out of 148 4A schools in
Texas, the Unicorns were
among the final four. It was an
uphill struggle through district.
The awful weather at
Fredericksburg and the Gon-
zales "snake pit", where it
seemed if anything could go
wrong, it would, were odds the
team overcame. Things leveled
off when playoffs began. The
team capitalized on their ex-
perience gained from playoff
games the previous year.
The defense shined in the
Carrizo Springs game. The
Unicorns stopped Carrizo's
high powered offense, which
capitalized on big pass plays.

Fredericksburg game. The

plays. The defense allowed only

The Unicorns faced Bay Ci-
ty with a positive attitude.
Trainer Dean Laird com-
mented, "Bay City appeared
very well prepared and had
faster, more talented athletes."
Early in the game, an offensive
breakdown led to the first in-
terception and score for Bay
City. From there things went
downhill. When the clock ran
out, the final score was New
Braunfels 6 and Bay City 49.

Not a whole lot of recogni-
tion was given to the freshman
football team. Most of the
"glory" went to junior varsity
and varsity. But just being on
the team meant a great deal to
the guys. It was not just wear-
ing the football jersey and
practicing everyday. It was go-

Providing a foundation for
techniques and giving the
players experience they needed
to advance to the j .v. and varsi-
ty squads were special purposes
of the freshman team. The fact
that the stadium was not filled
did not prevent the team from
performing well and posting an
outstanding record of 7-2-1.
The players trained for the op-
portunity to move up to the
junior varsity level. They ap-
plied the skills they learned to
make them better football
players and teammates.

What qualities are required
to be a good volleyball player?
According to the members of
the team, dedication, desire,
and a positive attitude hit the
top of the list. These qualities
were important to the team to
make it successful. Since there
were only two returning senior
starters, Dawn Cook and
Teresa Thomas, much mental
as well as physical preparation
was essential. Mental exper-
tise, toughness, and emotional
stability contributed to the
The Unicorns started the
naments, but Kim Wright was
honored with the all-
tournament title at the
Fraulein Volleyfest. The team
finished out pre-district with a
loss to Smithson Valley, but
earned an overall pre-district
record of 10-9.
The team came a long way in
pre-district to cap off the
season with ten wins. The
members claimed this was the
result of a positive attitude.
The major concern was to have
a strong team that could work
together. Whether they won or
lost, the Unicorns took pride in
season with a 15-9, 15-12 vic-
tory over Alamo Heights. They
participated in two pre-district
tournaments in San Marcos
and New Braunfels. The team
did not place in these tour-
their volleyball skills.

Friendl Ri alr
All sports have their share of
rivalry. In our town, there ex-
ists a friendly rivalry with Ca-
nyon High School that has
turned into a tradition. It is not
only school against school, it is
a more personal rivalry because
the members of each team
know each other from other out
of school activities. Some of the
students are even related to the
rivals. Since 1980, the teams
have battled it out and the
results were always the same.
In each game the scores are ex-
tremely close. Winning boiled
down to one aspect, homecourt
advantage. Each year when the
Unicorns hosted Canyon, they
were victorious, and when Ca-
nyon hosted the Unicorns, they
came out on top.
The first district game
against Canyon was lost 13-15,
13-15 in the Canyon gym. The
second game however, the var-
sity won 15-12, 15-12 at home.
Scores are similar from past
years. In fact, Canyon has
scored a total of 222 points
against the varsity and the
Unicorns have scored 249
points against Canyon. Coach
Claudia Perry stated, S'The
tradition lives onf' The tradi-
tion is not only the one win, one
loss status every year, but the

Unit I the Key
Playing as a team is the most
important aspect of winning in
any sport. Although the season
record did not show it, the team
had a difficult and slow start
due to a lack of unity. Accor-
ding to Coach Claudia Perry,
the girls quickly realized this
and the result was a new at-
titude and a winning season.
They began district with a 7-0
pre-season record and ended
the season with a record of 16-
6 overall. This accomplish-
ment, according to the players,
was a result of hard work and
an extra effort by all. The team
began practice in the beginning
of August and practiced three
hours a day. This became ob-
vious in the games and
The team played in two tour-
naments. At the San Marcos
contest, the girls defeated
Killeen, San Marcos, and Tem-
ple to take second place. The
second tournament was held at
Smithson Valley, where they
won the Consolation trophy
after beating Hays and
The junior varsity exhibited
the qualities of a winning team
as they projected a positive at-
titude, along with the will-
ingness to work hard together
toward developing their play-
ing skills. According to the
members of the team, team-
work and self discipline were
their keys to success.

For the Unicorn basketball
program, history repeated
itself. For the second straight
year, the basketball team suf-
fered because of the football
team's success in the state
playoffs. The Unicorns suited
up only seven players for most
of the pre-district schedule,
and only one of those players
had ever seen action in a varsi-
ty basketball game. The tough
pre-district schedule did not
help the cause either. Without
the football players, the team
won only two games, one of
those a 51-34 stomping of
cross-town rival Canyon. David

squad to the state ranked
Alamo Heights Mules. The
Unicorns did, however, get on

lard Luck Is Hard to Gvercome
The beginning of district
ay meant a new season had
rived for the Unicorns. The
am, however, had a hard time
tting rolling in district play.
ie Unicorns lost the district
tener to Canyon, 52-43, and it
ok a long time to recover
om this loss. The team lost its
:xt four games. "I thought the
iening loss to Canyon was
ry crucial," said Unicorn
:ad coach Cliff Wilkins. The
nys did not get on track until
e last game of the first round.
fter losing the first five
strict games, the Unicorns
ploded against the Hays
Rebels. Every player con-
tributed in the effort as the
Unicorns demolished Hays by
a score of 82-47.
The second round of district
play was not much better for
the hard luck Unicorns. The
team lost three very close
games to knock themselves out
of playoff contention. The
Unicorns lost to Canyon by
three, Lockhart by four, and
Gonzales by five in consecutive
games. The Unicorns, however,
did not give up. In the very
next game, the team rebounded
to knock off the then district
leading Kerrville Tivy Antlers.

The team finally got the break
they needed when Greg
Bender's desperation shot from
the corner went in with no time
remaining. Bender led the team
with 22 points in the 56-54 vic-
tory over Kerrville. The
Unicorns finished out district
play with two strong games
against Fredericksburg and
Hays. Fredericksburg, who had
beaten the Unicorns by nine
points in their first meeting,
did not have a chance as the
Unicorns jumped out to an ear-
ly lead and never let up. The
team beat the Billies, 69-34. In

Unicorns continued their win-
ning ways by trouncing Hays,

more advanced in their skills
and provided stiff competition.
The team worked on techni-
ques and skills. These skills
were developed by conditioning
mentally and physically.
Physically, the team put in two
hours of rough practice daily
which included running across

characteristic of a team. The
squad needed patience because
they were young and had many
skills to learn and develop
quickly. The squad was very
young, but Coach Patsy Davis
quickly pointed out that this
had its advantages and disad-
vantages. "One of the advan-
tages of being a young team
was the eagerness of the
players to learn. The disadvan-
tages were the lack of ex-
perience, jitters, and not being
familiar with playing as a
team," commented Coach
Davis. The team also had only
one returning starter, Teresa
Thomas, and three returning
players, Sabrina Sanchez, Kim
Wright, and Debbie Smith.

This and the fact that there
were only two seniors made the
season more challenging, In
past years, the team had a
predominant number of seniors
and a more solid basis to build
the team upon. Despite the lack
of senior leadership, the
Unicorns won Consolation and
Teresa Thomas was selected
for the all-tournament team at
the Boerne tournament. The
most memorable game,
however, was the game against
Canyon at home. The reason
being the big rivalry between
the schools and the fact that
Canyon defeated the Unicorns
by only two points in the
previous game. The Blue won
the game, 44-26, and finished
the season with a 8-18 record.

It was an ordinary team in
an ordinary town, but
something was definitely dif-
ferent. Gradually, the players
began to disappear. No, this
was not a re-run of the
Twilight Zone, it was not an at-
tack of the plague, nor was it
an extra-terrestrial being, it
was the j.v. team recruiting
The freshmen began their
season with eight players and a
3-0 record by defeating Boerne,
East Central, and Seguin. This
record began to dwindle as the
members of the team began to
supplement the j.v. Besides this
problem, there also was the
problem of absent referees. In
the home game against East
Central High School, the
referees failed to arrive and the
girls were forced to forfeit.
Three games before the end of
the season, one player, Yvonne
Mesa, returned from the j.v. to
help ease the burden of a five
player team. The last two
games were lost. However, the
scores were very close. The
freshmen ended the season
with a 6-12 record.
Even in this no win situation,
the freshmen believed that they
were winners despite the
record. According to coach
Patsy Davis, something had to
be said for the endurance of
these players, not just physical-
ly, but mentally. Through
adversity, problems with
referees, and the enrichment of
the j.v., the squad never quit.

This year was an outstan-

ability of the boys' track team.
"They always gave their best
effort, and were always com-
petitive", said head coach Lew
"Our goal at the beginning
of the season was to improve
each week, and be as ready as
we could be for the district
meet, and I feel like we ac-
complished that goal," he said.
And they did indeed, however,
this came after much hard
The team began practice in
the last week of February.
"The season is too long to begin
any earlierf' stated Simmonds.
Practice consisted of average
workouts of one and a half
hours for the varsity and junior
erall Ability Is Outstanding
varsity runners, and about one
hour for the freshmen. These
workouts included running the
200 meter dash eight times for
the varsity and j.v. teams, and
tive times for the freshmen
team. Workouts were held five
days a week.
The amount of work involved
required a certain type of
athlete. "He had to have in-
testinal fortitude, a love of run-
ning, a love of competition, and
self motivation, if he was in-
volved in field events, he need-
ed strength, quickness, agility,
and a competitive spirit," the
coach commented. These
qualifications produced a
relatively strong team, in spite
of some weakness in the 400

Kourtney Kahler realized
she had a talent for running in
elementary school when she
began running after and
catching boyfriends. She began
running on the track team in
seventh grade and has been

since. Kourtney commented
that track was good to her
throughout the years. In her
sophomore year, she earned the
title of All American for her
time of 2 minutes, 10 seconds
in the 800 meter race.
Kourtney's parents have
always supported her
endeavors as a runner and
stressed the importance of a
good education at the same
time. Kourtney also ran on the
Cross Country team and
received third place at the state
meet her junior year. In the
same year when track season
came around, Kourtney was
unable to participate because
of problems caused from stress
fractures in her left hip. As a
senior, Kourtney placed sixth
at the state cross country meet.
She began track season three
weeks late because of new
orthotics in her shoes which
were needed to help correct her
stride. Kourtney did not feel
she was a sprinter or a two

and distance for her. This

Involvement Is Commitment, Charit , and Love
What was student involve-
ment? Some thought the
definition of student involve-
ment was being a cheerleader
or a football player, but for
most, involvement was
centered around the Student
Council. Getting people in-
volved was the Student Coun-
cil's main concern. The group
accomplished this by planning
activities for the student body.
The annual food drive was
held in November. School

the largest amount of canned

tion with a total of 495 cans
and received fifty dollars.
Overall a total of l,l62 cans
By donating money, the
Student Council assisted
Teen-Connection, a school for
students who could not adapt
to a normal classroom, and
continued sponsoring the
Golden Unicorn Pass, which
was one of the state's top ten
Student Council projects. The
Golden Unicorn Pass involved
residents of local nursing
homes. Student volunteers
took the elderly people to spor-
ting events, parties, and band
concerts. ln return, the elderly
people gave a Unicorn made of
yarn to the Student Council as
a thank you token.
The Student Council also
organized dances, including
the Sadie Hawkins Dance and
the Pumpkin Dance. The
associate members of the Stu-
dent Council spent many
hours preparing "pumpkin
people" tags for every person
in school. To guarantee a
dance with the person of their
choice, students had to take
that pers0n's pumpkin tag off
the wall and present it to them
at the dance. The dances were
held to provide entertainment
and to get people involved in
By sponsoring these events,
the Student Council was able
to get not only the student
body involved, but the com-
munity as well.

with Canyon High School and
received close to 31,000 from

It may take more than two to get an un-
willing Tim Doty to attend the kidnap
breakfast, but Barbara Uridales and
Rodney Fischer give it their best try.
It Takes Two
It took basically two re-
quirements to belong to Na-
tional Honor Society or Mu
Alpha Theta. These re-
quirements were a high grade
average and leadership skills.
Students who had good
academic standing were ap-
pointed to NHS. Juniors were
required to have a minimum of
a 92 average, while senior
members were required to have
at least a 90 average. Besides
grade averages, students were
also appointed on the basis of
leadership skills and approval
from faculty members. NHS
members received membership
certificates during installation
ceremonies, which were held in
September. Other activities in-
cluded the annual kidnap
breakfast and the rent-a-kid
project. Funds from the rent-a-
kid project went toward the
National Leadership Con-
ference in San Antonio. NHS
gave members the chance to
expand leadership qualities,
serve the community, and build
Mu Alpha Theta members
spent most of their time par-
ticipating in math contests and
improving math skills. The 22
members were required to have
at least a B average and to have
completed Algebra I and
geometry. The group attended
state and national competitions
in Austin and New Orleans
and also participated in several
math meets at Carl Schurz and
Seele elementary schools. At
these math meets, Mu Alpha
Theta members helped elemen-
tary students increase their
math skills through speed and
The two prerequisites for
NHS and Mu Alpha Theta
limited the membership to a
selected few. For these
students, membership was
more than just participating in
another extra-curricular activi-
ty. It was an honor.
I may rise, but I refuse to shine! Six
o'clock in the morning was a little ear-
ly, however NHS had good attendance
at the kidnap breakfast which was held
at Mr. John Phelan's house.

Source of Pride
Rotary Interact was a com-
munity service club which
devoted time to different ser-
vice projects. The group con-
sisted of forty members and
met every other Wednesday.
Rotary Interact sponsored two
orphans through the Christian
Children's Fund and worked in
food booths at the Comal
County Fair and Wurstfest to
raise funds for service projects.
Six junior members, Laura
Tyner, Rhonda Reed, David
deLemos, Randy Long, Melani
Gallaway, and Marty
Espinosa, attended the Rotary
Youth Leadership Awards
Conference at Lackland Air
Force Base. Laura Tyner,
Melani Gallaway, and Marty
Espinosa were chosen to go to
the Rotary International Con-
gress in Mexico. Laura Tyner
won first place on her theme
for the conference.
Rotary Foreign Exchange
students attended school in
New Braunfels for one year.
These students were Matti
Mantynen and Anssi Hyvonen
from Finland and Pierre Mars
from Belgium. Each student
was chosen by the Rotary In-
ternational club of San An-
tonio. These students stayed at
local Rotary members' homes.
Being in Rotary Interact
gave members insight as to the
responsibilities associated with
local civic clubs, such as
Rotary International. The
group demonstrated respon-
sibility to the community by
making contributions to pro-
jects such as the Christian
Childrenis Fund and Teen
Connection. After a year of
hard work, the club was
rewarded with a trip to Port

Breakin the Barrier
Language can be a barrier to
communication, but not for
students who participated in
German club. The pen pal pro-
gram enabled members to
write to students in New
Braunfels' "sister" city,
Braunfels, Germany. 'gThe pro-
gram was started through a
friend of mine who teaches in
Braunfels," stated Herr Benno
Engel, club sponsor. When
students joined the club, they
were also asked to submit their
preference for a pen pal.
Through these letters, each
group had the opportunity to
learn about the different
cultures and lifestyles of
Braunfels and New Braunfels.
The club also sponsored stu-
dent Wurstfest. Besides a free
day from school, club members
enjoyed such delicacies as fun-
nel cakes and sausage-on-a-
stick. Then the members
gathered in the Wursthalle for
the traditional sing-a-long and
the chicken dance, which was
played about every five
minutes. The club earned ap-
proximately four hundred
dollars on commissions from
food and ticket sales at student
Communication and culture

aided members by helping

Beyond the Limit
French culture was not just
limited to France. Through the
activities sponsored by the
French Club, French culture
was spread to the student body.
Mardi Gras, PTA Open House,
and special parties allowed
students to experience a revival
of French culture.
Different types of French
foods such as crepes, quiche,
and coq au riz Cchicken and
ricej were served at Mardi
Gras, a major fundraiser for
the club. With creativity, the
French Club was able to ex-
hibit the styles and costumes of
France at the PTA Open
House. The display consisting
of props and costumes helped
them win third prize.
To further educate members
about French foods and
customs, the club held a
Christmas party and a end of
the year party. At these par-
ties, members sampled French

Food for Funds
Successful fund raising pro-
jects led to an increase in
Spanish club activities. Club
members sold M 8t M's and
Spanish dishes during lunch
groups to earn money. The
money earned went toward the
funding of a Christmas party
and a party and banquet at the
end of the year.
The International Banquet
provided the Spanish club with
an opportunity to learn about
German and French cultures
and foods, as well as, exhibit
their own. To break the
monotony of the last weeks of
school, the German and
Spanish clubs played a soccer
match which resulted in a tie.

Dedication and Pride
The Mighty Unicorn Band
played the fight song after each
touchdown, entertained during
half-time, and brought recogni-
tion to our school during con-
tests. But what was band really
about? It was not just playing
the right notes or marching in
step. Hours of dedication and
practice were required from
The band began practice on
August twenty-first when the
freshmen and new members
reported for daily marching
drills. The following week the
whole band, composed of 213
members, began preparation
for the half-time shows.
Aside from football games,
the marching season was
highlighted with the district
and regional band contests and
U.I.L. competition. In district,
the band placed 66 out of 162

chairs. These musicians went
on to compete for places in the
regional band and placed 38
out of 88 chairs. Then came the
big event-U.I.L. marching
competition. The Big Blue
Band earned a first division
rating for their performance,
however they did not advance
to state. Instead they received
alternate which was a disap-
pointment after participating
in state competition for the
past two years.
By devoting spare time to
practicing and working hard
during competition, the band
members proved that band was
more than just playing music.
It was dedication and pride.

On the Road Again-
Band Goes to Contest
Three bands made good use
of practice time and hit the
road to represent the school at
contest. In past years, only the
silver and blue bands par-
ticipated in U.I.L. competition.
Due to an increase in numbers,
three concert bands were form-
ed. The silver band earned a
sweepstakes rating and the
blue band received a I in con-
cert and a II in sightreading.
The white band, which focused
on the basics of music, earned a
III in concert and a II in
sightreading. In addition to
U.I.L. competition, the band
also performed a mid-winter

Having the desire to sing and
being willing to improve was
what it took to join the Concert
Chorale or Girls Choir. Each
choir performed at concerts
and contests. The two choirs
sang a range of songs from
standard and choral classics to
jazz and popular music. The
Concert Choir, which consisted
of twenty-nine members, per-
formed a total of seven con-
certs. The Girls Choir con-
sisted of twenty-six members
and performed six concerts.
The Concert Chorale was one
of three area choirs chosen to
perform at the Southwest
Texas State University Choir
Festival. Both choirs perform-
ed at the University of Texas in
San Antonio contest and at
area churches and high schools.
Getting ready for these con-
certs took time. All notes had
to be memorized, then came
the intense work of polishing
each song. Although choir was
very busy, the students also had
their share of fun. The choirs
sold candy bars, candy dishes,
candles, and held a spaghetti
dinner to raise a total of S3400
dollars. The money went
toward senior jackets, sound
equipment, parties, and a trip
to Six Flags in Arlington,
Texas. During the trip to Six
Flags, the choirs were able to
visit the Omni Theater in Fort
Worth, Texas. When asked the
benefits of being in choir Mr.
Stephen Bedford, choir direc-
tor, replied, "The hard work is
teaching that you must 'pay the
price' to do anything well. We

Groups Expand Horizons
Broadening horizons either
by building moral character or
by concentrating on learning
about a professional career and
creating new goals for the
future were common to both
the Future Teachers of
America and the Fellowship of
People who supported
teaching as a profession joined
FTA. The group sold mums
and carnations to raise funds
for scholarships for students
who wanted to pursue a career
in the teaching profession. In
the spring, the club held a
breakfast at Krause's cafe. Im-
mediately following the
breakfast, members visited
elementary and middle schools
to observe classes and worked
as teacheris aides for the day.
Meeting to share Christian
fellowship and to develop
positive character traits were
purposes of FCA. The club
held a Christmas party and two
parties following two football
games. With the help of dona-
tions, the group was able to
raise funds to send the
members to a FCA summer
Through fellowship and
working together both clubs

Biggest Challenge Is Starting From Scratch
Individual projects chosen at
he beginning of the year were
he biggest challenge for
tudents because these projects
vere directly related to the suc-
ess of the entire group.
vfembers started from scratch
vhether they were raising
.nimals or competing on a
udging team. They must have
earned and recorded all that
vas necessary to successfully
:omplete their chosen project.
In the summer, if the
.tudents desired, they could
ake their animals to prospect
ahows to prepare for the major
Ivestock shows. At the Comal

provided much stiffer
competition. In San Antonio,
David Waldrip placed first
with a light weight Limousin
steer. Darrell Waldrip won

Fitness Is Tested
Physical fitness is a top
priority for the U.S. Marines.
Physical fitness for the MC-
JROTC cadet meant a healthy
body, the capacity for skillful
and sustained performance, the
ability to recover from exertion
rapidly, the desire to complete
a designated task, and the con-
fidence to face any challenge
according to Lieutenant Col-
onel Owen Renfro.
Exercise was an essential re-
quirement for the cadets to
achieve physical fitness. They
were tested in November and
again in March to determine
improvements in fitness.
Situps, pushups, pullups, flexed
arm hang for girls, and a 600
yard run were the events used
to measure fitness. Cadets also
participated in other activities
to supplement their physical
fitness program such as team

records of results, and mailed

summed up the program by

ROTC not only gave
students a chance to gain
responsibility and leadership
experience, but also provided
services for the community. Be-

Training Earns Reputation for Excellenct
The Marine Corps' reputa-
tion for excellence came from
training which instilled in each
new recruit such qualities as
maturity, discipline, self-
reliance, decisiveness, pride,
and devotion to duty. These in-
dividual traits were molded in-
to a collective spirit known by
Marines as Esprit de Corps.
That quality which enabled
men to perform feats that
under ordinary circumstances
might be considered
Recognizing these qualities
as valuable in all aspects of life,
the Marine Corps established
the Junior Reserve Officers
Training Corps CJROTCD to
offer the positive aspects of
Marine Corps training to
young men and women.
Students in MCJROTC are
offered courses in Marine
Corps history, leadership,
marksmanship, map reading,
first aid, drill and ceremonies,
and various other aspects of the
Marine Corps. Cadets become
more mature as they discipline
themselves to take orders from
those who are higher in rank
Outstanding cadets were
rewarded with a chance to par-
ticipate in the annual orienta-
tion visit to a Marine Corps
base, Camp Pendleton in
California. The only money
cadets were required to take
was for admission tickets,
souvenirs, and meals bought at
Disneyland. The Marine Corps
paid for round-trip plane
tickets, food, and lodging. Dur-
ing the one week trip, cadets
lived on the Marine base at
Camp Pendleton. They were
instructed on such exercises as
firing of the M-16, combat
town, infiltration courses, and
night firing exercises. After
three and a half days of train-
ing, the cadets enjoyed a half a
day at the beach and a full day
at Disneyland. N
The weekend after their
return trip from California, tl
MCJROTC held its annu
awards banquet. The awarl
banquet was held to hon
those cadets who 'performu
above and beyond the call
duty. School board memb
and the heads of local ci
organizations, such as t
V.F.W., presented the awar
which were in the form of ri

Hours of Hard Work
Flawless performances re-
quired two to three hours of
daily practice on routines.
Most of the Monoceras ex-
perienced excessive ner-
vousness before the weekly
tryouts, which determined who
could perform at half time at
the Friday night game.
The girls said that after per-
forming at the game they knew
whether or not they had provid-
ed a good performance by the
applause from the audience.
The officers and sponsor, Mrs.
Patsy Vann, chose the music
and routines for each game.
"The girls all work hard, and I
like that because it shows me
how determined they are to
performf' said Mrs. Vann.
Those who made the drill
team accepted the responsibili-
ty to help build spirit, to pro-
vide entertainment, and to
represent the school in a win-
ning tradition. The group com-
peted in the National Drill
Team Competition and the of-
ficers won Sweepstakes in Jazz,
high kick, and character
routines. The officers dressed
as clowns for the character
routine and danced to "The
Sound of Music." The team, as
a whole, received two first-
place awards in high kick and
character routine. The
character routine was a dance

reality. However, cheerleading
was not all fun and games, not
just football season and
limelight. The responsibilities
of cheerleading included
leadership abilities, a minimum
overall C average, self-
motivation, and of course, the
skill to make it through the
After making the squad, the
cheerleaders began to decide
on the uniforms and equip-
ment, such as pom-poms,
megaphones, and shoes. The
total expenditure came to
about 5600. During the sum-
mer, the girls attended a camp
at Southwest Texas State
University in San Marcos.
They learned new cheers and
chants from professional
cheerleaders. For the first time
in four years, the cheerleaders
received a yellow ribbon, which
qualified them to compete in
the championships at the end
After camp, the squad con-
tinued practicing for football
season and planning spirit ac-
tivities. Certain days were set
aside for wearing such items as
outrageous hats, buttons, or fif-
ties attire to show support for
the Unicorns. A Mr. Irresisti-
ble contest was also added to
the agenda. This contest gave
the guys a chance to test their
charm. Girls were given
"hush" cards, which prohibited
talking to boys. The guys had
to persuade the girls to talk to
them. lf this feat was ac-
complished, the boy received a
"hush" card from the girl who
gave in. Brett Bingham won
the title with 152 "hush', cards.
In addition to boosting spirit
at school events, the squad
devoted their efforts toward the
community as well. The
cheerleaders decorated store
windows to promote Unicorn
spirit. The squad also held
clinics to teach future
cheerleaders basic skills and
made decorations for the sports
banquets. Through their spirit
and motivation, the
cheerleaders not only achieved
their personal dreams, but they
also boosted the spirit of the
student body and community.

Students Learn Skills
"A student who is creative
and artistically talented surely
is an asset in Commercial Art,"
stated Mrs. Patty Smithers,
sponsor. Having taken an art
class was not a prerequisite.
However, students needed to
have the desire to learn. In
class, students worked on pro-
jects such as designing posters,
jackets for record albums, and
book covers, and then applied
and other techniques to these

Commercial art collected
funds from donations for art-
work done for school and civic

Winning Isn't Everything
Winning wasnit everything,
but it was fun. Both FBLA and
Art Club discovered this by
participating in contests.
Art Club entered a total of
seven contests including the
Comal County Fair, Youth
Show, and P.T.A. Cultural
Arts. The total awards received
were two reserve champions,
23 first places, 20 second
places, 22 third places, two
fourth places, and four
honorable mentions. Besides
participating in competitions,
the club raised funds by silk-
screening t-shirts for clubs and
activities. The funds were spent
on supplies for the art depart-
ment and a trip to the San An-
tonio Art Museum.
Competition also played a
vital role in activities for the
Future Business Leaders of
America. Members received
awards in shorthand, accoun-
ting, and endowment funds at
district, state, and national
conferences. Outside of com-
petition, FBLA sold Austrian
crystal and M 8a M's as fund-
raisers. The money went
toward community projects
and a scholarship fund. The
club awarded the 3300.00
scholarship to Mary Holick to
pursue a career in business
FBLA and Art Club strived
to do well in contests, to reach
goals, and to enjoy working
together. Each group had ac-
complishments which will be a
challenge to others.

Let's Hear It for the Cast
Talent 'n' Theater was set up
to create an interest in drama
among students. The club con-
sisted of thirty members who
were required to pay dues and
be active in plays and produc-
tions. The members held an
Easter party and two fund rais-
ing cake bakes. The funds went
toward a costume banquet at
Holiday Inn and the One Act
Play. The title of the One Act
Play was "Heaven Can Waitn.
After four months of practice,
the cast became the first in
nine years to represent our
district at regionals held in
Corpus Christi, Texas.
Outstanding awards went to:
District: Barbara May,
Honorable Mention, Wade
Rathburn, All Star Cast, and
James Blakey, Best actor.
Regionals: Wade Rathburn,

Contestants Reap Rewards
Competition at area, state,
and national levels earned
many awards for members of
Distributive Education Clubs
of America. It all started with
the area Career Development
Conference held in Austin.
Nine members qualified to
compete at state where DECA
earned eight awards. At state,
Weston Pacharzina received
first place in Entrepreneurship
Written Event, while Adam
Schwab and Scott Blake placed
in Restaurant Marketing.
These three students advanced
to national competition in Kan-
sas City, Missouri where
Weston won first place.
Aside from competition,
DECA participated in group
activities such as an officer
breakfast at Krause's cafe, a
Christmas dinner at Country
Corner, and a Halloween
DECA was closely related to
the marketing and distribution
class and students were en-
couraged to join the club. The
students learned about business
through labs and computer
classes. Students also made
plans for club projects and at-
tended field trips to Natural
Bridge Caverns and the
heritage exhibit during
Students benefited in many
ways from DECA. The
members gained leadership
skills through committee and
officer training. The sponsors
also located student training
stations in the community
where students worked in
By applying the experiences
gained through DECA ac-
tivities, jobs, and competition,
the students prepared
themselves for the business
world and reaped rewards.

Vocational office education
is for students to learn leader-

camaraderie, to reach in-
dividual goals, and to get along
with others using parliamen-
tary procedure at meetings.
The club consisted of 70
members that were required to
be enrolled in vocational office
education or the word process-
ing class and to pay dues in
order to participate in contests.
The club held a scheduled
meeting once a month and
special meetings when called
by president, Cheryl Dees.
V.O.E. helped sponsor the
Texas Special Olympics and
gave an Easter egg hunt for the
students at Lamar School. An
open house was held for
freshmen and sophomores to
introduce them to the program.
An employer-employee recep-
tion, held at the Chamber of
Commerce Honors Hall, was
given to honor employers. The
club also held a Halloween and
a Christmas party during the
year. Members participated in
area.and state meetings. The
area meeting was held in San
Antonio at Clarke High
School. The state meeting was
held in Dallas at the Hilton
Hotel. Fundraisers consisted of
compiling and selling a school
directory, selling links to build
a spirit chain, and the sale of
two Easter bunnies. The money
went toward the publication of
the directory, scrapbook
materials, socials, the
and meals at contest. By being
in V.O.E., members were able
to learn leadership skills and to
reach individual goals.

Learning Is Copin
Club of Texas QVOCTJ gave
students a chance to train in in-
teresting work areas. Students
had the opportunity to attend
school and to work in the real
world of business which helped
them in learning how to make
it on their own.
Guest speakers talked to the
group about various types of
careers. Demonstrations on
health care, clothing, and of-
fice techniques were presented
to students. Using resource
books, studying independently,
and learning to prepare income
tax forms were also major parts
of this program. During
January, students began
preparing for contests and job
interviews. Along with this,
members worked on projects,
the chapter display, and the
scrapbook. According to Gloria
Kolacek, sponsor, the name of
the book was "Fantastic,' as it
reflected all the fantastic work
the students had accomplished.
Fundraisers included "Can-
dy By Cupidl' on Valentines
Day. The candy was handed
out by cupids, Robert Goodwin
and Ricky Yanas. The most
popular fundraiser was the
Unicorn calendar which was
produced with the help of
VICA students. Students could

These fundraisers not only pro-
vided money, but also enticed
the students to be more involv-
ed in the school as well.
As a part of being involved in
community activities, several
students dressed as Santa
Claus for the children at the
Comal Head Start Day Care
Center at Christmas. This was
the first time the club members
had the responsibility of caring
for a child. They also brought
the children to the high school
for a "show and tell" program.
This enabled the youngsters to
see what high school was like.
Social activities were impor-
tant to the club. The group
hosted a breakfast at the Hill
Country Inn to honor and to
become acquainted with school
officials. To celebrate
Christmas, the club went to the
Fiesta Dinner Playhouse where
they met Patrick Wayne, a per-
former at the dinner theater.
At the end of the year, a ban-
quet was held at Goerke's
Country Tavern to recognize
employers for their support and
students receiving awards.
The club offered members
experience in the job field and
lessons on etiquette. On-the-job

Once a month, the staff met
on Saturday to put the
finishing touches on the
layouts. Class time and occa-
sionally extra hours were spent
catching up on late deadlines.
After everything was finished,
the material was pasted on a
layout board and sent to the
printer as camera-ready copy.
The papers were sold for 25
cents a copy. The staff earned
money through sales of papers
and advertisements. Adver-
tisements were sold for two
dollars per column inch. All
advertisements were designed
by the staff members. This
money went toward the

dedicated one Saturday a
month and stayed after school
when necessary to work on the
upcoming paper. Dedication
was the key that made this a
successful year. As stated by

hard this year to upgrade the
status of the newspaper.
Without their dedication, hard
work, and super attitude, I

Staff Wins Awards and Makes the News
Computers were everywhere,
even in the staff room. The
staff began using Apple Ile
computers to type copy and
each member received an in-

for future reference.
Work on the 1984
UNICORN began in early
August when the staff attended
a week-long yearbook camp in
San Angelo, Texas. Staff
members learned the basics of
layout, design, and copywriting
and chose the book's theme,
"In The News ...". After
camp, the staff was faced with
the task of helping with school

began. After a slide show

In December, page deadlines
began to take toll. Staff
members were expected to
finish about 50 pages each
month to send to the publishing
plant. The staff worked during
class and even attended night
sessions to work on pages.
After months of work, the book
was completed and a sigh of
relief was heard throughout the
Awards won for the previous
year's book put staff members
in the news. The 1983
UNICORN received a first
place rating from Columbia
Scholastic Press Association at
Columbia University in New
York. Judged in such areas as
theme development, layout,
copy, coverage, anld
photography, the book earned
922 points out of a possible
1000. The 1983 UNICORN
also received an award of
Distinguished Merit at the
League Press Conference.
Making headlines was not
just associated with
copywriting. By winning

Local Students Struck
with Common Disease
Itis not the "common cold"
'you attract in the winter time
o'r the "fever', you catch in the
spring. It strikes year round.
This dreaded disease only
strikes seniors, it's called
Senioritis was a common
disease which struck most
'seniors after they had been ac-
cepted to the college of their
choice. The first symptom was
evident when the average, go-
getter senior began to "forget"
his homework a few times and
then "forgot" to study for
"small" quizzes. These minor
things led to more major
assignments and tests that were
neglected. Those contracting
the disease acquired new
phrases that they began to use
frequently. For example,
"BLOW IT OFF',, "WHO
' CARES", and "GO TO HELL
WORLD I'M A SENIOR?
Grade point averages began to
fall, but the infected senior was
sure to maintain the minimum
grades in order to stay in the
top quarter of the class to meet
college entrance requirements.
By the end of the year, the ill
senior was only doing the
minimum required work to
pass his classes and to finally
graduate. Such is the life of a
senior with senioritis, the only
known cure for these 309 un-
fortunate souls was the
diploma. Senioritis struck nine
out of ten seniors. No high
school was safe from this terri-

Senior Kourtney Kahler par-
Qicipated in the modern pen-
:athlon during the summer at
Fort Sam Houston in San An-
zonio. Kourtney was to be part
if the program because of her
swimming and running
abilities. The five events in-
:luded were running, swim-
ming, jumping Con horsebackj,
shooting 22 caliber guns, and
Fencing which she enjoyed the
most. The camp lasted one
month and each of the par-
ticipants trained every day
from 6:00 in the morning until
4:30 in the afternoon. The rest
of the day they worked on in-
dividual skills. At the end of
the pentathlon, Kahler stated
"I really got a taste of each
sport, and what they involve."
According to Kourtney, this
experience added to the
possibilities for her receiving a
scholarship to be able to attend
college. The pentathlon con-
tinues year roundg however,
Kahler could not go on with her

l Home Awa From Home
At the beginning of his
senior year, Kevin Brown
transferred to New Braunfels
from Uvalde to play tennis in
the Competitive Edge program
at Newk's Tennis Ranch. After
a taste of the tennis program,
Kevin's parents moved to New
Braunfels to work as pro's at
Newk's and Kevin continued
with his tennis. The season was
I a success for Kevin. First, he
-von district, he competed at
egionals, and he advanced to
the state tournament in Austin.
T For the second time,
- nowever, Bastrop's Tim Juarez
lefeated N.Bfs top player. In a
pro set earlier in the season,
' Juarez defeated Kevin 8-2.
This time the final score was
6-2, 6-1 in an hour-long match
to win the semi-finals at the
.I boy's state tournament. Three
factors that contributed to
Kevin's loss were: he couldn't
get his shots past Juarez's net
game, he couldn't get his first
serve in consistently, and he
couldn't win the close games.
Brown stated, "I'd get points,
but I couldn't win games? The
loss in the semi-finals brought
Kevin's season to a close with
an impressive 38-2 record.
Uvalde's loss was N.Bfs gain
when Kevin Brown became a
part of the tennis team. Kevin
and his parents were quickly
accepted into the community
and New Braunfels became
their home instead of a home
away from home.
And it's up . . . , Senior Kevin Brown
tosses the ball high to get a good serve
during a match at the high school

Seniors Have a atural
Seniors were known for their
natural ability to have a good
time. When the weekends
came, seniors were out on the
town. At the close of the year,
every senior was out every
night. They always managed to
find something to do.
Throughout the year there
were breakfasts, brunches,
and of course, just plain old
parties. Many of these were
planned, but there were those
that were spur of the moment.
If someone said the word party,
everyone knew there had to be
to Have Fun
a party somewhere. Whether it
was at the island, at someone's
house fsometimes parents were
out of townJ, or just cruising
around town in the car, seniors
were out and about. Looking
for a good time did not come
hard for these seniors because
it seemed that fun always
followed this group. The night
life of a senior- was exciting,
fun, and quite busy.
Party "People"? Susan Scheffel, alias
Susie cavewoman, and Adrian Baker,
alias Elvira, are ready to party with

Where Do We
Go From Here?
That is the question a lot of
eniors had to ask themselves
s the year came to a close.
Iany knew what was in store
Jr them, however, many
thers could not make up their
tinds. For some, graduation
'as a step closer to in-
iependence and a way of show-
ig their parents they were
nature enough to face the
real" world. For others
graduating was just an escape
to be rid of school for good. It
was neat to talk to your friends
and to find out where they were
going to school or if they were
getting a job or even getting
married upon graduation. Once
this dreaded question had a
answer, seniors were able to sit
back and say, "I did it and I
did it for me!"

Salute the Salutatorian
Robert Sarkozi, class
salutatorian, received a
510,000.00 scholarship from
the San Antonio based Minnie
Stevens Piper Foundation. One
itudent from each school in
fexas was nominated for this
.cholarship. Then from these
ftirdents, quarter finalists were
.:hosen. The SAT was given to
determine selections for semi-
Linalist. Sarkozi's score of 1360
entitled him to one of the 50
positions of semi-finalist. Of
those 50, 25 were chosen as
finalists. Those 25 were then
given IQ tests and personal in-
terviews for the scholarship.
Sarkozi's scholarship may be
used at any Texas school, but
he must maintain a B average
and take at least 15 hours per
semester. Sarkozi decided to
attend Rice University in
Houston in the fall. Along with
the Piper scholarship, Sarkozi
received a four year National
Merit Scholarship worth
58,000.00 and a tuition grant
from Rice. Robert set a doc-
torate from Rice in
mathematics as a future goal.
A job well done. Robert Sarkozi steps

For most students, being a
junior meant being one year
closer to graduation, being on
their own, and letting loose. In-
volvement was the key word.
Everything revolved around the
future. Studying was a must.
Day after day, juniors heard,
"Honey, I know you're trying,
but you have to keep your
grades if you plan on attending
college!" BOOM, just when
you thought you were on the
road to success, there came the
P.S.A.T., A.C.T., and the
beloved S.A.T. Filling out ap-
plications was hard enough,
much less taking the test which
was seemingly made for a

forms of entertainment. A ma-
jor part of the junior year was
spent planning and attending
the annual Junior-Senior
Prom. Class functions and
private parties were also high
ranking events for the year.
Keeping active definitely
seemed to be a fairly popular
pastime for all 285 juniors.
Besides all of those parties and
wild weekends, participation in
sports events was not unusual.
Academically and socially,
juniors climbed another rung
toward the long awaited senior

Was your schedule crowd-
ed? Not enough time to take
all the courses required was a
common complaint heard on
campus. As an answer to the
students' concerns, cor-
respondence classes were of-
fered. Students participated
in the correspondence pro-
gram in order to be able to
take all the courses that were
required for graduation and
still have room for their elec-
tives, too. Students applied
for the courses through the
counselors' office. The
University of Texas offered
high school students courses
such as health, home
economics, math, science,
social studies, foreign
languages, and even English.
The minimum tuition to
enroll in one of these courses
was S47.25. Students taking a
one semester course were
allowed up to twelve months
to complete the ten lessons
to them through the
Then, the counselors
gave a final exam to the
students as the final require-
ment of the course.
Eleven students finished
classes through the mail from
the University of Texas.
Carolyn Fey took Latin from
the University of Nebraska
since it was not offered by the
University of Texas or as part
of the regular high school cur-
riculum. She expressed her
opinion of correspondence
classes well by saying,
"Finishing a class that was
important to my academic
career by correspondence was
an independent achievement
that was very rewarding?
Although only two credits
were allowed through cor-
respondence classes, students
used these classes to add flex-
ibility when scheduling
classes during the regular

Always fun and games at Campus Life!
Nancy Brewer and Jennifer Smith are
part of a practical joke played on par-
ticipants in Campus Life in which they
try to stuff tomatoes into coke bottles.

Adding Life to Campus
Fun and friendship evolved
from Campus Life meetings.
Mr. Eric Landrum, the group's
sponsor and leader planned
weekly meetings in which a
group of 35-45 students par-
ticipated in wild and crazy
games and worthwhile discus-
sion. The group also offered Bi-
ble studies once a week for
young Christians in which they
worked together to give each
other better perspectives on
everyday and spiritual lives.
Tom Duke expressed it well
by saying, "Campus Life
taught us to have fun and build
stronger friendships. It broke
the monotony of school life and
gave us something to look for-
ward to during the week."
Talking it over! Cindy Caddell and Mr.
Landrum discuss plans for going to

Summer fun was delayed for
some members of the
sophomore and junior classes.
Instead of tubing down the
river or catching some rays,
students spent five weeks tak-
ing driveris education, which
was necessary to obtain a
driveris license by age 16 in the
state of Texas.
The 200 students who at-
tended the classes paid 5145.00
dollars for summer instruction.
Daily sessions available to
students were 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.,
9:30 to 11:30 a.m., and 1:00 to
3:00 p.m. Students had to at-
tend one of the sessions five
days a week for five weeks. A
total of 52 hours of driver's
education was required.
Classroom instruction, learning
rules and regulations and work-
ing with the simulator for nine
hours to develop proper driving
habits, was a requirement of
The student drivers spent
twelve hours in a car. Four of
the hours were spent driving
and eight hours were spent in
the back seat observing and
learning from other drivers' ex-
periences. The cars used in the
driving portion were obtained
from Krueger Chevrolet, Bock
Motor Company, and Becker
Students found that the lux-
ury of having a driver's license
was worth sacrificing summer
fun and 52 hours of their time.
Having the car keys was an ad-
vantage. Students could now
run errands for their parents
and have the fun of cruising
around town at the same time.
Also, the hassle of trying to
find rides to school and other
activities was eliminated.

Willis and her date, Terry Canham,
enjoy each other's company on this
Dating-A Popular Pastime
When the subject of dating
came up, there were many ma-
jor concerns. The first question
most students asked was,
"Who will I go out with?"
Some chose older individuals,
and others preferred younger
dates. Still others were
satisfied with a companion of
the same age and grade. The
second problem was, "Will my
parents let me go?"
Next came the unavoidable
"Where will we go?"
Sometimes couples splurged
and drove into San Antonio to
dine and see a movie. Finances
were also a point to consider.
The cost of a movie and dinner
was approximately S40.00, not
to mention the gas necessary to
go to and from the chosen
entertainment. Because of this
many students stayed in town
for entertainment. School
dances attracted couples,
especially Queen of Hearts and
the Prom. All sports events
seemed to be a popular activity
Another most important
question was, "When will we
go?', Saturday nights were the
biggest date nights, but many
Friday nights were spent on
dates as well. Occasionally on
school nights, a concert, a ban-
quet, or just a free night with
no homework would leave time
for a night out.
Everyone eagerly awaited
the weekends. However, dating
was definitely a privilege which
was anticipated by students for
years. Finally when that
special person and Mom or
Dad said "Yes", it was reality.
Burying the hatchet after a trying week
of class competition for Queen of
Hearts, Bill Fox, a junior, decides to let
bygones be bygones and take Stephanie
Hanover, a sophomore, to the corona-
tion and dance.

Thick and Thin
It is hard to tell the exact
moment when we became
friends. It may have been the
time we went out to lunch
together at Pat's Place and
were almost late to afternoon
classes or the time we both
were sent to detention hall for
talking too much in Mrs.
Kraft's geometry class.
We eventually found a sym-
pathetic ear as we discussed
how mad Mr. Tucker made us
during marching season or how
hurt we were when boyfriends
ditched us for a Monocera who
was a little bit prettier.
We even made sure to see
each other after every class and
we always knew when the other
had a track meet or a band con-
cert. It really was tough when
you were asked out on a date
with the guy I liked. He even
took you to see "Footloose"
which you knew I was dying to
see and afterwards, he took you
to my favorite place-
We patched it up over a sun-
dae at Polar Bearis and found
that sometimes quarrels and
disagreements brought us even
closer. During spring break
when your mother wouldn't let
you go to the coast and I stayed
home, only then did we realize
how much our friendship
meant. There was an exact mo-
ment when friendship was
formed and the word "friend"
became a real feeling instead of
a word that cannot be defined.
And when that moment occur-
red, the realization of our
friendship became an impor-
tant feeling in our lives.
You can always count on a friend to
have the correct change. Adriane
Michelson and Mindi Largent discuss
the latest gossip while deciding what
they would like to drink.
Enjoying an afternoon at the park with
friends Mike Zunker, Juan Rodriguez,
and Johnny Martinez decide what ac-
tivity they would like to do next. The
class which wins Queen of Hearts is
always rewarded with a free afternoon
in the park.

Becomes a Realit .
More privileges were
available to the 327 freshmen
students in high school than in
middle school. New to the
freshmen were the commissary
and cold drink machines, which
were available for a quick
snack during lunch or just to
take away the frustrations of a
hard day's work. For the first
time, the freshmen elected
class officers. Students chose a
secretary, and treasurer to
represent their class. These of-
ficers were in charge of making
the final decision on the three
money making projects for
Queen of Hearts. The projects
selected were a raffle, a
fishwalk, and food sales.
Another task was choosing the
class t-shirt design.

selection of elective classes to
students. This provided more
flexibility in scheduling classes.
Freshmen were allowed two
electives along with four re-
quired courses. Having one bell
schedule for the week was a
relief. Students no longer need-
ed to worry about a rotating
schedule as in middle school.
The two biggest honors for the
freshmen were winning Queen
of Hearts and raising more
money than any other class in
the history of the school. The
years of elementary and middle
school were history and a firm
foundation was set. High
school was finally a reality.

First Da Blues
The 323 freshmen arrived at
school with wide eyes and
hopes of not suffering humilia-
tion from upperclassmen. After
finding their lockers and fiddl-
ing with the combination locks,
freshmen heard the first bell
signifying school would soon
begin. Next came the hassle of
finding the correct classroom.
Asking older students did not
seem to help any since they
usally laughed and sent the
"new" students in the wrong
direction. Once freshmen were
finally in class, the first day
blues continued. Filling out in-
dex cards and listening to
teachers attempt to pronounce
names correctly only added to
the tension. Most freshmen
spent the beginning of fourth
class, the almost two hour
block of time which included
lunch and enrichment, trying
to figure out when and where
they should eat. At the end of
the day, a great deal had been
learned about high school and
freshmen were beginning to
relax. They knew that the next
day would be better-how
could it get any worse!?

the main objective for Melissa
Garza. The biggest reward was
to successfully use all her time
and talent in a combination for
work, school, and social life.
Melissa's day consisted of
courses in speech, honors
English, biology, band, and
geometry. Balancing school
and extra-curricular activities
was difficult, but she still main-
tained an A average overall.
After school Melissa devoted
five hours a week to teaching
dance classes at New Braunfels
Dance Studio under the super-
vision of Joan Slocum. She
taught a combination of
acrobatics, ballet, jazz, and
when she was three. She receiv-
ed instruction from Joan
Slocum and because of her
ability as a dancer, she became
an instructor herself. Melissa
also took oboe lessons once a
week to help improve her per-
formance in band. She was an
active member of the safety,
publicity, and public relations
committees on student council.
Upon graduation, Melissa's
plans are indefinite, however,
she would like to study
pediatrics at the University of
Texas in Austin.
Practice and skill are required when

Where's the Beef ?
State Board Beefs Up
Changes in education were
proposed by the governor's
select committee on education
fheaded by H. Ross Perotj and
by the legislature through
House Bill 246.
The school board and ad-
ministration have the respon-
sibility to make sure that all
state requirements are enforc-
ed in the district. The Perot
committee made recommenda-
tions for restricting the number
of days students can be absent
for school activities, such as
athletics, band, and Future
Farmers of America. This com-
mittee also proposed that all
extra curricular activities meet
after school and that the state
board of education be abolish-
ed. Curriculum changes were
mandated by the State Board
The most significant changes
due to House Bill 246 involved
requirements for the high
school diploma. The number of
required credits was changed
to 21 for 1984-85 and 22 for
the 1985-86 school year. There
were two plans proposed that
the students could choose from.
The advanced graduation plan
required a third year of
science, two years of a foreign
language, one year of fine arts,
and one year of computer
science. This plan also required
that the three units of math be
at or above the Algebra I level.
This plan was designed for
students planning to go to col-
lege to prepare for a math or
science related career. The se-
cond plan that a student could
choose was the regular plan
designed for students who
wished to take more electives,
however, by choosing wisely,
students could still meet col-
lege entrance requirements.
Since the local district already
required four units of English
and three units of history and
government, the only real
changes were in the math and
In a meeting with prospec-
tive ninth grade students, Vice
Principal John Phelan said that
students would have no time to
waste time. Mr. Phelan was
emphasizing that students and
their parents would have to
plan carefully when selecting
electives. The school board ap-
proved "zero houru course of-
ferings based on demand. With
the approval of these classes,
the high school was able to of-
fer students an additional hour
for electives which could not be
fit in during the regular school
The impact of the changes
on the local district was not as
great as it was on other smaller
districts. The local district was
pretty well on-target with the
new "beefed up', requirements.
And if I might add . . . Will Davis ad-
dresses the 18th annual Texas
Legislative Conference. Legislators at
the conference discussed the proposed
changes in education.
What would we do without them?

:Student teachers were found

throughout the year. These in-
dividuals learned from the ex-

their originality to methods of
classroom instruction. High

Mr. John Phelan, vice-
principal and coordinator for
student teachers commented,
"Student teachers like to come
hereg they like the student body
and enjoy the atmosphere."
His major concern was to make
sure the program did not
jeopardize the quality of in-
struction within the school. Mr.
Phelan described the program
as "an opportunity for the
school district to improve the
quality of teaching since it pro-

Extra income is always a help, especial-
ly for those living on a teacher's salary.
Coach Bob Baker earns a little extra
money by drawing cartoons for the
editorial section in the New Braunfels
Herald. He also uses this talent to cap-
ture his students and colleagues on
paper. The artwork below is an exam-
ple of a faculty member trying to

the Great Escape
Yes, teachers are "people"
too. They cope with the same
hassles of the day to day
routine. Every once in a while
teachers need to "escape" to
that certain out of the way
place just as everyone else
desires. While teachers were a
group defined by their jobs,
they were also individual peo-
ple with human needs. They
needed to eat, to sleep, and
some of them were even seen in
local stores shopping. Some
taught because they enjoyed
the company of the kids, and
others because they were not
trained for anything else.
To take a break from
routine, some went skiing in
Colorado, some enjoyed draw-
ing cariacatures of other people,
and others preferred to relax
outdoors. Students felt
teachers arrived at 8:00 a.m.,
taught classes, and disappeared
at 4:00 p.m. That was not true.
For example, Mr. John Sowell,
Mr. Wayne Tucker, and Mrs.
Becky Sanburg were always on
campus well before 7:45 a.m.,
the official "sign in" time. Mrs.
Bonnie Leitch offered extra
help for math students and had
a classroom full of students
before and after the regular
school day. Many teachers
were found in their rooms
grading papers after 3:45, the
official "sign out" time. These
teachers shared the concerns of
each and every one of the
students and were willing to go
to extra lengths for them. For
their extra effort and ability to
cope with the everyday hassles,
teachers deserved a break.
Although teaching was the
source of income for these peo-
ple, the teachers' main source
of reward came from the
students. So if you ever happen
to see one of these people walk-
ing down the street, look at
them and say, "Thanks, we

Some Wind Down, While
Others Gear Up
Thoughts of parties, picnics,
and summer fun clogged the
minds of almost every student
on campus. As the school year
came to a close, students rush-
ed to finish end of the year pro-
jects and research papers while
cramming for final exams.
While this was the end of high
school for the seniors, it was
also the beginning of another
year for underclassmen. Elec-
tions were held for club officers
as well as class officers.
Monoceras, twirlers, and
cheerleaders were chosen after
many hours of diligent practice
while the mascot and Unicorn
handlers were chosen from
teacher evaluations. Because of
a mix up in the girls' scores,
Monocera try-outs were held
twice to give each girl a fair
chance for a position on the
squad. Cheerleader try-outs
were altered this year to allow
any girl, regardless of grade
classification, a position on the
varsity squad. Schedule cards
were passed out to
underclassmen, who carefully
planned their remaining high
school years. Athletes were
issued game schedules and
workout agendas for summer
conditioning. While activities
were winding down for the
year, students were gearing up
for next year as well.
Landa park offers a variety of activities
for freshmen. As a result of the hard
work that the freshmen class put forth
to win Queen of Hearts, they were ex-
cused to go to the park for the after-
noon to relax and have a picnic provid-
ed by the yearbook staff. Mike Garcia,
Latosca Stewart, and Jodi Sparks
spend their afternoon on the Comal
River in paddle boats.
Westem day breaks monotony. The
Student Council sponsored Western
Day, which consisted of a root beer
chug-a-lug contest, quick draw contest,
dance contest, and a barbeque after
school. Although the turnout was light,
Carolyn Fey, Benton Willard, and
Linda Wilson help consume the

Beams of excitement
radiated from the faces of hap-
py but nervous graduates.
Graduates reminisced over the
sad and happy, serious and fun
moments of their years
together and occasionally a
dewy eye could be spotted.
Along with those memories
came the recollections of all the
hassle that was involved just
for a little tassel. Invitations to
friends and relatives, cap and
gown orders, morning practices
for baccalaureate and com-
mencement, and last minute
assignments had to be com-
pleted before seniors could of-
ficially graduate. A week full

Ducks out of water! The springs in
Landa Park are dry because of the
drought. Many high school students
were worried about possibly losing
their summer jobs because they were
employed by local tourist businesses
that relied on the water for the
livelihood of their business.
Some News Isn't
There are some news items
that bring sadness and disap-
pointment to our lives. The
football team made it to the
semi-finals, which was super.
However, there was disappoint-
ment that the team did not
make it to the state finals. The
county was faced with possible
rationing of water due to lack
of rainfall. The Soviets led
Communist countries in a
boycott of the summer olym-
pics to be held in Los Angeles.
On a more personal note,
three people who were
associated with the school died.
Mrs. Vera Elizabeth Eikel died
on January 29, 1984, Rocky
Lagunas died on May 27,
1984, and Johnny Zamora died
on June 4, 1984. Mrs. Eikel
was the first editor of the high
school yearbook. She was born
on October 29, 1911. She was a
radio and television write-up
Tragic automobile accidents
took the lives of Rocky
Lagunas and Johnny Zamora.
Rocky was involved with
athletics as a member of the
j.v. football and baseball
teams. He was born on April 7,
1967. Johnny was born on
February 5, 1969 and was also
involved in athletics.
Even though there were
news stories which were sad,
disappointing, and shocking,
these stories made life real.
The good news out-shined the
bad news during the school
year to make fond memories
without having to dwell on the
bad times. We will remember
Mrs. Eikel, Rocky, and Johnny
for the positive contributions
