The Energy Crisis arrived in 1974 and we were
forced to adapt to new ways of living. Basketball
schedules were shortened and field trips were
cancelled due to the fuel shortage. This also
meant colder classrooms and a change to Daylight
Saving Time with school hours 10-4.
Despite all of these problems, the students and
faculty were busy preparing for the school eval-
uation. School was dismissed early on days that
committee meetings were held and general re-
pairs were made in order to spruce up the school-
for the evaluation committee. Student tours were
given and each classroom was outfitted with a
specially painted blue and white chair for the

Yearbook Arrival Creates Excitement
Seniors recall many fond memories of the past year. Here's my money! Where's my yearbook?!?
The dancing is the best part of the yearbook Tim Rose points out a picture to some friends.
The second annual yearbook
dance Was given this year by the
yearbook staff after the Middle-
sex game to distribute the 1973
Iliad. Everyone was happy and
excited at the arrival of the books.
The Winning of the game also
helped to heighten the atmo-
sphere. Music was supplied by the
VIP's and everyone enjoyed danc-
ing and generally having them-
selves a good time.

accepted, teams were chosen to
represent each class. Students ea-

A field day was sponsored by
the Beta Club which allowed stu-
dents to compete in track and
field events. The excitement was
intense. Those who did not take
part in the events were just as en-
thusiastic as those who were
fighting for the ribbons which
were awarded as prizes. The
Physical Education Department
assisted the Beta Club by having
its students engage in serious
events. Juniors and Seniors also
competed against each other in
different events. The just-for-fun
events were enjoyed by everyone.

ness and added many new ideas and
activities. The smoking lounge,
which allowed students to smoke
with parental permission, was
passed for a second year. Members
participated in two major fund rais-
ing activities, the magazine sales
and the poster sales. The SCA also
passed a revised senior exemption
policy. This new policy allowed se-
niors to be exempted, on certain con-
ditions, at mid-term as well as final
exams. The SCA purchased two em-
ergency lights for the gymnasium.
Also a coke machine was installed in
the Science building. This was

Yearbook Receives Merit Award From SIPA
The yearbook staff spon- 1
sored a yearbook dance this
year to distribute 1973 year-
books, which turned out to be
another great success. Since
the distribution of these books,
the staff has been busy selling
ads, taking pictures, selling
charms and collecting money.
Working with a new company
was a challenging job. New
techniques of layout and year-
book production had to be
learned. The Iliad has recently
become a member of SIPA and
received an award in its class
for the '73 Iliad.

year's Beta Club had to battle the
weather. The Christmas social
was cancelled because of a snows-

Nevertheless, the Beta Club still
managed to have one fund-raising
activity Field Day. It was a huge
success and the proceeds were
used for a scholarship. Carson

graduation. This scholarship was
based on high school standing and
contributions made to the school.
Mother-Daughter Banquet Was Successful
The Future Homemakers of America started
the year off by taking a field ti'ip to the Virginia
State Fair. Initiation was the next exciting event
for the new as well as the old members. During
the year the F.H.A. participated in various fund-
raising projects such as selling Stanley Products.
The members made stuffed animals for the chil-
drenls hospital and valentines for a convalescent
home. The program of work was centered around
"Our Community and School? They were involved f
in cleaning the inside and the outside of our r
school. In the spring, the F.H.A. gave a very re-
warding mother-daughter banquet with a fashion
show and installation of officers. Junior and chap-

new coaches, the team boasted a
record of 9-1. Seven of which were
shutouts against them.
No one really expected the
team to come through this year.
They were small in number and in
size. "Have you ever seen a big
piece of 'Dynamite"?" But through
faith, team spirit, and practice
twice a day on hot summer days,
they became champions.

The Trojan Junior Varsity Express got
off to a slow start, but it rapidly picked up
momentum as it roared toward the Tide-
water District championship. Although
they lost their first two games by close
margins, the young Trojans gained valu-
able experience that they used in the lat-
ter part of the season.
Player development was the keynote of
the Junior Varsity season. Inexperienced
players bolstered by the confidence of dis-
trict victories over Poquoson, West Point,
and King William, avenged an early sea-
son loss to Mathews by winning the
rematch 14 to 8 to capture the District

The New Kent Trojan basketball team overcame incon-
sistency and a general lack of confidence to put together a
productive season. Most of the credit goes to Coaches Ed
Allen and Rusty Curle. The players and the coaches put in
many hours of sweat and hard work to achieve the ulti-
mate goal-the district crown. The Trojans had to put up
with many frustrations during the season. The energy
crisis took its toll as the season was cut down from 20
games to 14 games. The first half of the season found the
Trojans to be an up and down team, but during the second
half of the season, the Trojans came together and por-
trayed a sense of team spirit that proved to be hard to
beat. The frustrations were a thing of the past. Tyrone
Smith, Frank Christian, and Robert Burrell were the lead-
ing scorers for the Trojans. Robert Burrell was named to
the All-District Team. Lorenzo Washington and Paul
Davis contributed tremendous efforts in each game.
Clyde Otey, Al Otey, Bruce Wiley, Dwight Brooks, and
Scott Wallace played an important part in the success of
the team, as all ten members were instrumental in each

basketball season. Not only was the number of games cut
back, but three games were played each night producing
tired athletes, spectators, and sleepy students. The Junior

The Junior Varsity team produced another winning
season despite the difficulties from the energy crisis. To-
gether with a quick offense and a stingy defense, they
won 8 of their 14 games. Despite several losses, they kept
their fans on their feet with close games, losing 3 of their
games by only 2 points.
Chaarles Green was cited by Coach Howard Ormond as
the team's most improved player and ended the year as

This years girl's season was not up to par with the
previous year's, although the girl's enjoyed many emo-
tional victories. The Trojanettes kept the fans on the
edge of their seats with jammed overtimes. The Tro-
janettes were led by Seniors Shelia Hill and Wendy
Martin. Shelia Hill led the team in scoring the highest
points and receiving the All-District Award. Dorothy
Foley along with Marrissa Pollard led in bringing down
the rebounds. The energy crisis had an opposite affect
on the Trojan girls. During a year when the Basketball
schedules were shortened, the girl's team played four
additional games over the previous year's schedule. Al-
though the Trojanettes ended their season in a five-
seven record, the season was filled with many excited
moments' Senior Wendy Martin lofts a shot as teammate Deborah Brandon

softball team experienced a
very enjoyable season, winning
five games and losing only to
Poquoson, King XL Queen, and
King William. The team dis-
played a solidarity that held
the team together through the
hard games and made winning
that much more of a pleasur-
eful occasion. Mrs. Hudson
acted as assistant coach to Mrs.
Boyce. Their fine leadership
was of great value to the team.
For their efforts, Mrs. Boyce
and Mrs. Hudson were each
presented with plaques at the

VARSITY CHEERLEADERS ALWAYS
Sneaking into the locker room to
hide a cake for the team, being dumped
into cold water from a dunking booth,
and attending cheerleader camp were
just a few of the exciting things that
the cheerleaders did in 1973-74. Before
the school year ever began the cheer-
leaders were hard at work. Several
members of the varsity squad attended
a camp at Longwood College bringing
back many new cheers, yells, and ideas.
Selling ads for the football program
started in July with the girls having
the best year ever. They were also prac-
ticing several times a week and plan-
ning new ways to cheer the football
teams on to victory. After the school
year began the cheerleaders sponsored
pep rallies, made signs, sold programs
at home games, and brought oranges
and orange juice for the teams to enjoy
at halftime. They also made cakes and
cookies for the teams to have after the
game was over. Decorating the locker
room for big games was another activ-
ity these energetic girls performed.
Throughout the year, the cheerleaders
sponsored money-making projects. For
the county fair, the girls built a dun-
king booth, where they sat, while
people threw halls hoping to see these
poor girls dumped into the cold water.
Sponsoring a dance after a football
game also helped to make money. As a
part of the week's activities before the
dance a "Mr, Legs" contest was

The Cheerleading squad were all smiles before the basketball game with

The Cheerleaders took pictures of
nine guy's legs and the students cast
their votes, a penny each for the best
looking legs, The winner, Mark Neville,
was crowned "Mr, Legs" at the dance
on Friday. Other ways the girls found
to make money included selling basket-
ball programs at home games and sell-
ing cokes and pop corn at baseball
games and track meets. In January the
English dept. sponsored a faculty bas-
ketball game. The cheerleaders helped
out by agreeing to be the opposing
team. The Varsity and J.V. cheer-
leaders lost but did an outstanding job.
During basketball season, the cheer-
leaders found ways to create lots of ex-
citement. They got new uniforms spon-
sored a 2001 pep rally and held a raffle.
At the raffle they gave away prizes
ranging from two cans of oil to a ba-
nana, even cakes they baked them-
selves. After winning the District tour-
nament, the basketball team went to
the Regional tournament and the
cheerleaders were not far behind. They
made sandwishes, brought snacks, and
wrote good luck letters to boast team

This year the Math Department had open
classrooms, in which many math classes were
taught in the same room. This involved individ-
ualized study by each student or a group of stu-
dents working together, to see how well they
could follow directions and comprehend on
their own. Many students found that they
made better grades on tests with this type of
study, The Senior Math Class was new this
year. The class was mainly concerned with the
basic mathematical things needed in today's
society like taxes, credit, housing, and banking
procedures. The Senior Math Class took trips to
a bank, credit bureau and different car dealers.

by the students because they learned
more about human behavior and
what makes people tick. Patricia
Seitz won an award for the hardest
working student in the class. There
was a firing line between students
and administration where the stu-
dents could ask questions on any
subject. Regular nightly TV pro-
grams, related to the subject, were
taped and shown in class. The stu-
dents were able to meet with an FBI
representative, Mr. Kennebrew, and

The Class of
In recent years, the Senior Class
had been one of many activities,
many decisions, and much work to
do. It is the most hectic of all the
years in school. This year was no ex-
ception. Many of the Seniors became
frustrated with College Boards and
other tests and deadlines set up for
college acceptance. Many could not
decide what they wanted to do. The
Senior sponsors and Guidance Coun-
selors were a great aid to a large
number of Seniors. Many college
representatives and recruiters from
the armed services came to en-
lighten the Seniors and help them
make decisions Rising prices ex-
tended into Seniors' pockets as they
found that ordering pictures and an-
nouncements could be very ex-
pensive. But they all realized how
important these things were in mak-
ing graduation as meaningful and
memorable as possible. Senior class
members were involved in many
classroom activities. The Sociology
students participated in nostalgia
projects portraying the decades
from 1920 to 1960 in their own spe-
cial way. Choral music students sang
Christmas carols outside the win-
dows of each classroom. English
classes were different with Seniors
giving speeches, oral book reports,
oral readings, and participating in

Seniors Obtain New Exemption Policies
Flora Malinda Brown Charmaine LaVerne Burrell Robert Alton Burrell Roy Hamilton Burson
Teresa Lynn Carlton Annais Wesley Christian John Augustus Christian, Jr. Kelvin Lamarr Christian
The Seniors proposed and had accepted a Senior ex-
emption policy allowing some Seniors a chance to be
exempt from exams for first and second semesters.
This was the "first" for exam exemptions for mid-se-
mesters. Asxln past years the Seniors were afforded the
respect of the underclassmen. They were allowed to go
to lunch early and underclassmen were required to
stand when the Seniors entered an assembly.
The Senior class was well represented in athletic
events, as well as in club activities. Also, during Easter
vacation some class members visited Spain, Portugal,
A Senior activity day was planned for the end of
May to coincide with the Junior-Senior weekend.

Juniors Raised Money From Candy
The Juniors started the year in
good fashon by receiving their class
rings. Excitement abounded with
the Junior princesses Annie Lewis,
Ann Shiflett, and Gloria Paige for
Homecoming. Our float "Trojans
have a golden victory," won second
place in the float contest. During
football season, we sold refresh-
ments in the "Shack", trying to raise
money for our spring activity. The
Juniors accompanied the Seniors to
High School Day at Virginia Union
University in the fall. Many Juniors
racked their brains taking PSAT
test preparing for College Boards.
When spring came New Kent people
were looking for dates to the Prom.
This year's class broke with tradi-
tion, having a different kind of
Prom and Banquet.

Sophomores Lose Chair to Poquoson

Our fund raising project for the

Class of 1 977
Enthusiastically the class of 1977 gathered to-
gether in the early days of the school session to
elect officers and make plans for the year.
Homecoming and its activities claimed atten-
tion right away as they selected three of their
most attractive girls to represent them on the
court. "Brand The Bull Islanders" was the theme
of the first place float and it was theirs!
The SRO's made their first appearance of the
year with the Freshmen at their dance following
the Charles City football game.

Class of 1978
The eighth grade began a good year by working hard
on their Homecoming float. The theme, "Sink the Is-
landers," was portrayed by a ship firing bombs at a
tropical "island," The eighth grade princesses were
Lydia Phillips, Betty Burrell, Kay Dudley, and Cindy
We also enjoyed working in the magazine drive. The
eighth grade placed second, receiving half of the prof-
its from the sale.
Sports kept many of us busy all year. Both football
and basketball were great favorities. On April 19, 1974,
we sponsored a dance with the SRO's playing. It was a
very successful and enjoyable ending to a full year of
