Turning for the second lap, into the bedroom, just in time to find Rover making an early morning snack out of his new pants. Des- perate and left with no alternative, he sneaks into little brother's room and successfully removes his best pair of pants without being noticed. Everything seems to be in place. Right as he heads for the door to leave for school, he hears his little brother screaming in anger that he's stolen his best pair of jeans. At this point, he turns around, walks back into his room, and crawling between the sheets, mutters, "Oh, boy. lt's Monday." A typical da before school New Choral members endure some glances from Lonnie Story during the annual initiations. Carol Fillmore, counselor's secretary, was caught by the camera, while typing student schedules. STUDENT LIFE A typical da during school Tuesday, Sept. 4, was the day that began another year of tests, labs, reports and themes. For many Vikings, each school day began at 8:30, but for people in extra-curricular activities, such as marching band, the day began at 7:30. As the 8:30 bell rang, we made our way into our first period class, where we began the day. At 9:25, we made a run for our locker - which never wanted to open - made a quick pit stop by the candy machine, then dashed through the class doorway, just in time to beat the tardy bell. Half- way through third period, we began to feel the consequences of not eating breakfast. When fourth period finally came, those of us who were lucky enough to have first lunch took part in that ever- present, fast walking race to beat the other students to lunch. Once there, we gathered up our remain- ing strength to wait in line while our stomachs growled in anguish. Finally, we paid our 80 cents, found an empty chair and began filling that gaping hole inside us. Sophomore Anthony Gomez takes time to study biol0gy, which was a required course here.

Rhonda Turner and Iulie Romero go through the lunchline on a day when hamburgers were on the menu. Whether we had first or fourth lunch, eating was always more enjoyable when accompanied by disco, rock-n-roll, or country- western music on the cafeteria stereo. As we left lunch, we saw the boys holding up the wall, the ropers in the courtyard, and peo- ple going to lunch. When we went back to class, it didn't seem long until the bell, only to find out it was just the signal for another lunch ending. When the 1:15 bell finally did ring, we shouldered our way through the halls to fifth period. A lot of lucky seniors with work permits were allowed to leave campus, but the rest of us trudged on to English, math, his- tory, chemistry and other "fun" classes. And when sixth period finally came, the Vikas went to practice, as did the "jocks" - football, basketball, and all other teams. As we put our books away for the final time, we began the final countdown to the bell. It made no difference what was going on in class or what we were involved in, we tensely awaited the bell, and when that hollow musical tone sounded, it was like the freeway at five o'clock. We were free for another afternoon. STUDENT LIFE Varsity football players Iimmy Howard and Monte Peiser have fun at a IV football game. Travis Moore and Cindy Bos- worth discover that "horsing" around is one way to show spirit. At pical da after school I The anticipation swelled throughout the school as the final seconds ticked off the clock. Finally, the 3:15 bell signalled the end of yet another school day. Tension building to an almost unbearable level, then the thun- dering sounds of feet could be heard heading towards home, practice, work, or someplace else, such as a club meeting or shop- ping. The students who stayed for practice were usually on an ath- letic team, such as basketball, or were on the drill team, band, or cheerleading squad. "We often had to stay until 5:30 or so on weekdays, except on Thursdays when we left at 3:30 and went home," recalled Vika drill team member Sus Ancheta. "Then we had to come back 6:30 and stay until 7:30. "Friday mornings we had to up at school at 7 in the mornin warm up for the pep rally," continued. "It was hard work, we had fun, too. After a long pr tice, I felt like going home, tak off my shoes and sitting on a ni soft couch with a full glass Coke," she laughed. Homework was the big aft school accomplishment for majority of people. It was given teachers, young and old alike, a was dreaded by all who had to it.

We go o school five days a week, and I hink we should have the nights and weekends to ourselves," she 'easoned. Going to work was high on the ist of things to do after school for nany students as inflation took nigger bites out of scarce funds. Some students got out of school :arly to go to Irving High to 'work," but it was a class, too. "I liked getting out early Jecause I could go home, eat unch, and take it easy. Then, I lad to go to Auto Mechanics ilassf' said senior Robert Anzal- ua. "We worked on cars fourth, fifth, and sixth periods. Then, I went to work from 3:15 till B," he added. Students often worked late hours to get extra money to take out that special girl or buy that much-wanted stereo speaker. Those lucky enough not to have any homework or who didn't have to work, had a variety of things to do. There were movies to see, books to read, people to visit, sign- painting parties, music to listen to, athletic events, and there was always the family "babysitter," the television. Many pleasant evenings were passed by laughing at the antics of "Mork and Mindy," or learning the latest disco steps on "Disco Fever." After school was the one time that often helped a student make it through a long day -just think- ing about getting out. And it happened almost every day . . .

Senior lane Kliaber spends her A typical weekend for senior after-school time working at LeRoy Kemper is spent finding .her job at Long Iohn Silvers. a place to ride his motorcycle. A typical weekend Friday. That one word had such impact that it inspired a hit song and movie of the same name CThank God, It's Friday"J, and brought to mind visions of football games, dances and the weekend. Friday was begun by a pep rally, followed by the day dragging onward to the magic ring of the 3:15 bell. The night was usually spent by decorating a car and heading to the game. After the game, everyone headed for the local haunts, such as Pizza Inn, Taco Inn and the Sonic. Saturdays were started by wash- ing the car, mowing the grass, or for the young at heart, watching cartoons on television. The nights were lit with the glare of headlights as everyone went out on the town. Most made the usual circuit of Pizza Inn, etc., but some also went to Dallas to enjoy night life. Sunday was characterized by sleeping into the afternoon, after having stayed up late Saturday night. Then it was time to watch the Dallas Cowboys on television or just take it easy. Sunday nights were used to go to church, or to frantically finish the homework and generally preparing for another onslaught of the Monday morning blues. .

Boyd Davis and Tim Marshall lead the band down the west hall before the outdoor pep rally. 0 U R 9 PI RIT Before the pep rallies The early morning silence sits like a great giant in the darkened spectator area. Suddenly, at 7:15, the lights are switched on and every scratch on the floor and crack in the wall is revealed in a blaze of mercury vapor. Slowly, girls in blue and white gingham outfits shuffle by twos and threes into the gym to begin their pre-pep rally warm-up. - "Okay, girls! Let's wake up out there." Muscles are popped awake as the disco music blares from the record player. The gym reverber- ates with the sounds of last-min- ute rehearsing. "One, two, three, four Get that line straight!" The cheerleaders casually stroll in, chatting about last night's phone calls and tonight's dates. They set down their megaphones and pom-poms, then begin limber- ing up. Preparing a sign to be hung from the rafters, Ieanne Hays struggles with the paper and string. "lt's too early to be doing this!" The Vikas are now warmed up and have their parts. Now, they can go brush their hair, fix their make-up, and preen their uni- forms. "Girls you've got seven min- utes!" The semi-emptiness of the gym fades away as eager, noisy stu- dents arrive proclaiming their class is the absolute best in school spirit. "Help, where's the tape?" The band, many of them still half-asleep, struggle through the back door, begin setting up instru- ments. and running through riffs and scales, warming up numbed lips. "Oh, no! I lost my music sheets!" Groups of students now begin shuffling in and head for their respective class' seating section, wondering if they'll have enough lung power to win the coveted Spirit Award this week. "We haven't won it in two weeks. We've got to win it this time!" STUDENT LIFE if-fukin' DUR During the The talking winds down to a low murmur as Big Vik makes his way to the center of the gym. l-le blows his horn, and we know the pep rally has officially begun. A simple "1-2-3-4 ..." from drum majors Laura Iones and Benny Hengy, and the band starts the fight song, "Fight on Nimitz High The cheerleaders make their way across the gym floor, with Vodahn Uohnny I-Iousej tumbling beside them. When the fight song ends, the cheerleaders start with an opening chant. "Who ya rootin' for, N-H-S!!!" The spirit competi- tion is underway. SPIRIT The drill team rushes back and scrambles into their lines while the cheerleaders make sure their megaphones are in the right places and the microphones are working. Finally, it's 7:50, and with the blare of Big Vik's cow horn, the Viking call is issued and the pep rally is underway. Drum major Benny Hengy con- ducts the band into a spirited song during the MacArthur pep rally. pep rallies As they yell the words of the cheers that are embedded in our minds, we think only of a victory for our class. We bring our pom- poms, whistles and other objects that make noise. We all listen for the cornet trio of Larry Dorsey, Iohn Soto and Tim Marshall, to play the tradi- tional "GO" fanfare. Then the cheerleaders gather around the microphone to give one of their famous introductions of the Vikas. "Vikas, Nimitz Vikas what kind of girls are Nimitz Vikas?" Portrayinf an old woman, Keri McFarlan smiles over her embar- rassment during the pep rally. After participating as the "Tiger" in the sophomore skit, Ieane Bal- droe helps with class spirit.

GUR SPIRIT After the pep rallies The cheering was over and knots of students crowded their way to the various exits. Football team members used their usual exit through the left gym door. After they had gone the rest of the student body and teachers who came to watch the rally proceeded to the exits at the bottom of the stands. The gym had emptied, and the paper wrappers and forgotten coats were all that remained from the morning rally. No one remem- bered the hours of work that had gone into preparing the props, the practicing of the cheers and rou- tines. Thoughts now were directed toward the coming day's activi- ties. The rush of confusion between getting from the gym to the hallways often found Mr. Curry or Mr. Winn reminding the teachers that the pep rally had ended and to corral the remaining students into rooms. The excite- ment now moved to the hallways inside the building as they slowly filled with students and the administration. When the pep rally ended. it signaled the begin- ning of another Friday. Classes went on with an occasional sight- ing of a Vika in her blue gingham outfit, or a football player in his blue knit team shirt, bearing the Viking emblem on the shoulder. When Saturday finally arrived. the 7:30 football game became partially a social event where we went to see our friends. It wasn't the prototype that we would all imagine. The game ended and everyone headed for Pizza Hut or Pizza Inn to talk over the rest of the weekend. Q Embarrassed by her strange attire after a pep ra ly is cheerleader Ann Dean.

A unity that ran through them like a golden thread, creating a pleasant atmos- phere and good working condi- tions. Numerous scholars depended on various teachers for different reasons. Some teachers often helped an ailing grade average by assigning extra credit work to grateful students: others explained a difficult problem after school. STUDENT LIFE Coaches guided their athletes down the road of development. They trained us to meet our poten- tial, helped to develop our best skills, and become a good friend. Without them, there would have been no teams, and many of us would have been injured, not knowing the correct way to warm- up or how to run a certain play. Many teachers sponsored clubs or organizations for us, so we could share a common interest with others. "I really like sponsor- ing the National Honor Society. I really get along well them. We are just one big family," said Mrs, Ste- phens. A good teacher-student rel- ationship helped many of us see school as a pleasant "duty," and made the year go by faster.

Through a day of classes everything wasn't always smooth-going. Students had to overcome many problems in the course of a single day. As if getting up and getting ready for school wasn't hard enough, we had to come to a building that was some- times full of noise, confusion and grumpy moods.

Some headed for the blue cush- ioned seats that awaited them in the auditorium. "What's it about this time?" is heard from among the crowd of heads headed for the doors at the top of the stairs. "Same old thing!" comes familiar reply from a muf- fled voice in the crowd. No matter what the meeting concerned there were always those whose thoughts drifted not to where to sit after they finally got in, but of how to avoid the watchful eyes of the teachers. The meetings always started with the opening speech of the class "pres.". The formalities always came first, with officers who had things important to tell the class. Next came the part which told us what we already knew. We still didn't have enough money, but we had enough of bake sales.

Not much of a response came from the student body, who at first didn't seem to know what was going on.

They are little bits and pieces of laughter mixed with tears, paragraphs and pages writ- ten through the years. When with all our dignity we stood and gave away our youth. Four learning years that left a few illusions shat- tered in the endless search for truth. They are the friendships we remember and mistakes we regret, the ending of the love affair we never could forget. We can't erase the sadness or edit out the tears, we oan't undo the wrongs, we can't relive the years.

Not only did we nominate Skjhonnhet con- testants, but also picked our favor- ite things. Out of the 17 categories, one was overwhelmingly domi- nated by over twice the votes - the category of favorite male singer. Country western singer, Kenny Rogers was that man. At the time of the poll, he had two songs at the top of the charts. And right up there in the rock charts was disco singer Michael Iackson, who came in second. Country western won another category, with Crystal Gayle win- ning the favorite female singer. Her interpretation of country music impressed inany people - enough people to defeat Linda Ronstadt, who finished a close second. This year, the hangout category wasn't dominated by one, but by many. Sonic Drive-In received the most votes, as many students found it to be a place to park and talk to old friends, and sometimes meet new ones. But fast food res- taurants weren't the only place to hang out. Students often gathered at a friend's house, such as Kelly Shrum's house, which received a number of votes. The favorite movie at the time was "The Ierkf' A movie starring Steve Martin as a man who goes from rags to riches to rags. A familiar story, "The Ierk" was rated R. However, this didn't stop Nimitz students from filing in the Irving Mall Cinema to see it. Another movie which was shown at the Cinema was "The Muppet Movie," which came in second. Although he didn't appear in the favorite movie, Burt Reynolds won the category of favorite male actor, while Steve Martin was named second. A new face won the category of favorite female actress.

Although it didn't win the sen- ior prom motto, "Co For It" won the favorite motto. An over- whelming number of votes were received, which led to its victory. For the first time in a number of years, football didn't win the favorite sport category. Instead, basketball won. Our team had a notable year, which may have helped it win. The Pontiac Trans-Am won the favorite car category, while the Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 followed close behind. "Hey Gang!" "What?" "Are the Tigers going to win this game?" . ..

On Western Day, being a cowboy for cowgirll was the "in" thing, with a particularly Western pep rally to match. Then here come the greas- ers. Fifties Day was a wild scene, seeing people in ancient styles of clothing walking in the halls, with the most appropriately dressed boy and girl crowned Fonzie and Pinky for a day. One of the bigger issues of the freshman year was the sign on the school marquee which read: "Home of the Nimitz High Family, Where people care about people, Where each student is important And each life is precious." The marquee was given to Nimitz stu- dents bythe Booster Club as a gift, but in November, some parents requested the slogan be taken down.

Generally speaking, our feelings about Nimitz were all in the affirmative. And why not? Nimitz was often rated clean and very nice by most. A few, for example, said that they felt our school had the best people. Others stated that they were having a good time within the halls of Nimitz, mostly because of the independence and freedom to do pretty much what you want - at least when com- pared to junior high.

From 6:30 to 10 a.m. the Vikas learned new routines which the officers learned at summer drill team camp. When school started, the Vikas worked out during sixth period and stayed until 6 p.m. in prepara- tion for the football game each week..Monday was a review day to go over the routines for the pep rally and the game that week. Tuesday, each girl had to try out for each routine. The rest of the week was spent rehearsing the S routines and perfecting them. Thursday night, the Vikas prac- ticed the half-time show with the band. The Vikas also spent Thurs- day night often baking cookies or other goodies for the football team, and on one occasion, rolling players houses. Friday was hectic for the Vikas, as their schedule included an early morning practice before the pep rally, then the pep rallyg more practice later in the day during sixth period, and after school practice for the halftime show, then finally the game.

Wendell, 1979's repre- sentative of Viking spirit, resigned due to medical reasons. Martinez represented the Vikings through the basketball season in his sheepskin cape and horned helmet. He was chosen, after a prolonged vacancy, for his size and attitude. Martinez explained that his benefits as Big Vik included the school letter jacket and an oppor- tunity to meet and talk to players and fans, both on and off the field. He proved an apt Big Vik at the games he attended. johnny House, as Vodahn, found his position exciting. "I think the pep rallies are even more exciting than the games," he revealed, "because everyone comes to the pep rallies and yells. The games are exciting, too, but I like the pep rallies better." House had the unusual experi- ence of working with two Big Viks. "I like both guys, but I never got to really know Wendell because he only appeared at a couple of games. There was a hole for a long time through most of the football seavson, and then Tony stepped in. Both guys enjoyed the prestige and excitement of being Viking symbols.

The fine arts programs of drama and art at Nimitz created illusions in areas that ranged from painting and printing to poetry and prose.

NFL members are set apart from Q ... drama club members through merit of NFL points. During com- petition, members racked up points for placing in their events. After the initial 25 points for entrance into the League are earned, the members advance through degrees of merit, honor, excellence, distinction and special distinction. Most senior members looked forward to special distinc- tion by the time the annual Awards' Banquet for NFL is held. Almost every Friday and Satur- day, the Drama and Tournament members loaded a yellow school bus and rode to area campuses to compete in Debate, Extemporane- ous Speaking, Oratory, Humorous and Dramatic Interpretations, Duet Acting, Poetry, and Prose.

ORGANIZATIONS EAUTHQRS Print 8: Film he one group of staffers that held everyone in yearbook and newspaper together was the photographers. When deadlines were missed, the pho- tographers were usually blamed. But more often than not, they were the ones at school until 10 p.m. or midnight printing pictures to keep the other two staffs out of trouble. Sometimes they did lose pictures or mess up sizes, but they were usually willing to fix things up and help you out.

For others, it meant drawing lay- outs, pasting up, or developing film. VVhichever way you looked at it, it meant work - and lots of it! Beginning in the summer, Val- halla staffers attended workshops to plan the upcoming yearbook. Editors Sandra Snow and Stacie Dane had their hands full organiz- ing a staff of unexperienced peo- ple trying to put a 368-page year- book together. Deadlines came and went: sometimes being met: other times not. Many times a simple question turned into a yelling match of who's fault it was and who did or didn't do their job. But the good times far out- weighed the bad. The staffs had picnics and played football at Fritz park with the photographers until every muscle felt as if it would break.

ORGANIZATION SER The 'New Look' he year was one of changes and the Student Council was no exception to new policies and practices. Because of lack of participation and enthusi- asm on the part of members in previous years, the Council set up a new system to elevate apathetic Council members. This new sys- tem was based on points, stipulat- ing that each member must earn a minimum of 30 points in a six- week period, or face being put on probation. Probated members were dropped from the Council's roster if they failed to earn their points thereafter. This helped to insure that each representative did his part to make Council activities the suc- cessful events that they were, and that the responsibilities of student government were not left up to a few. Student Council representatives earned points by making posters of upcoming activities and pro- jects, setting up for Council dances and helping with clean- ups, along with their other efforts. The Student Council acted pri- marily as the voice of Nimitz, and secondarily as the voice of student opinion and governing unit. The Student Council met throughout the entire year in an endeavor to promote school spirit. When a conflict arose at Nimitz, the Student Council polled and balloted the student body's reac- tion and prevented serious con- ERS' frontations. The Student Council held activ- ities geared both to the high school arena and the community. Whether it was a bake sale or a sports event, it would be posted on the board or marquee to keep .. students, faculty, and even pass- ing drivers, alerted of events.

At Nimitz, the Student Council was responsible for many of the weekly dances, the Student Activ- ity Board, Skihonnhet, the cafete- ria's stereo system, and many of the Homecoming activities. The weekly Student Council- sponsored dances were held after most of the football and basket- ball home games. Win or lose, the Council was there to help every- one "boogie down" and have a good time. The Student Activity Board and the marquee on Oakdale served as reminders of student activities. Each week, the calendar on the activity board in front of the cafe- teria was updated to keep in step with the busy lives of Nimitz Vikings. ORGANIZATIONS SERVERS continued from page 198 Last year, the Council pur- chased a stereo system for the caf- eteria, and since then, had resumed care of it. The stereo added an informal touch to the otherwise dreary cafeteria. There also was Homecoming parades, decoration contests, and of course -the dances that many Council members were funda- mental in. The Council did not limit their efforts to school activities alone.

So why was it that people never attended the meetings? Did the clubs achieve their purposes or was it that they just weren't inter- ested? One reason may have been the early hours in the mornings that they held their meetings, sometimes as early as 7:30. Yet, some clubs had their meetings during school because they had a class period for the organizations. One such club was Home Eco- nomics Cooperation Education, better known as I-IECE-HERO. Members of this club and class- room went to school half a day, then got out early to go to their job. l-IECE-HERO was a club which wasn't short of members, spon- sored by Lyndia Roe. Another example was Future l-lomemakers of America KFHAJ, sponsored by Bonnie Brown. To be in this organization, a student had to bein a homemaking class. "We had a picnic," confirmed Cindy Villarreal, one of the many FHA students, "and a skating party." Because of the over- whelming number of members, club meetings could never be held.

ROTC Activities, field trips highlight ROTC year 'I accepted into the NIROTC ranks during the annual Induction Cere- mony, which was followed by a reception honoring the Navy's 204th birthday. Cadets from all over the United States - including 30 honored cadets from here - met in Pensi- cola, Fla., where they participated in the annual NIROTC Field Day. The events ranged from military, athletic and academic competi- tion, to guided tours of the USS Alabama, a trip to the Naval Avia- tion Museum, and a special air show, put on by the crack Navy flying squad, the Blue Angels. Cadets began the new year by selling candy to raise money for their annual Ball, held in Febu- rary. Highlight of that event was the crowning of the NIROTC Queen. April brought the Annual Inspection, conducted by Area 8 manager Capt. Steve Picciuola. He viewed the personnel and their uniforms, then quizzed the cadets about the ROTC organization, Naval and US history, and the national government. He also evaluated their drills, reviewed the course of instruction and vis- ited with school administrators. Also in April, the cadets hosted the Third Annual Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz Essay Contest for junior high school students in Irv- ing. The cadets also hosted the Area 8 Drill Team Competition for rifle squads, Orienteering teams and color guards. The final event for the cadets was the Awards Banquet in May.

At the end of school last year, many teachers resigned. Some found better jobs in another career, some went back to school and others wanted time off to raise their families. But back at Nimitz, the new teachers discovered that their new "home" was a special one. They cared about the students and participated in our student- faculty activities.

The new teachers were quickly taken in as part of our family by everyone. We really didn't feel that the teachers were new, though. lt seemed like they were always a part of the school. They were always seen in the halls car- rying on a pleasant conversation with a student or two, and at the games, they cheered us on with as much excitement as the rest of us. The school song and cheers were quickly learned by them, as they participated in pep rallies and skits. They grew in spirit as the year progressed and truly became a part of our school. .

A labor of lo e oy Curry and his love for his students was an essen- tial part of life at Nimitz. His presence and support at games, pep rallies, P-TA meetings and most other activities that involved our students made us feel special and that we were an important part of the Nimitz fam- ily. That feeling carried through him and to the entire school bodyg teachers, students, secretaries, everyone. Leading over 2000 students and helping to shape each of their lives was a big responsibility. He guided each of us, yet he still had time to be our friend. He never felt that he lowered himself by stopping to pick up some trash left by a careless stu- dent. Pride in our school meant not only supporting but also help- ing to keep it clean and a place to be proud of. Not many days went by that Mr. Curry was not standing some- where in the halls to greet stu- dents passing by. He was at most of our games to cheer us on. Win or lose. he was there and support- ing our team. ln his own words, he felt we "the students, are number one." 1 The Nimitz family had a remarkable person as a member.

They kept student events rolling smoothly by overseeing any disciplinary action that must be dealt with. As second period came around, Asst. Principal jerry Winn filled students in on activities with the announcements over the intercom system. Mr. Winn supervised the new freshman class, as his last year's class graduated. He was also in charge of scheduling and exams. Milton Witt, working on his sec- ond year at Nimitz after a move from Travis junior High, takes care of the 10th grade. "I really enjoy the 10th grade group and I think that a lot of them have learned how to behave since their freshman year," commented Mr. Witt. Mr. Witt was active with school activities and could have been found at almost all of them. He was also in charge of getting sub- stitute teachers and fixing student lockers. As the senior class enjoyed their last year at Nimitz, Dollie Ripley was there with moral support every mile of the long road to graduation. Mrs. Ripley handled clubs and organizations, and made sure all senior activities ran smoothly, such as banquets, the Senior Prom, senior rings and invitations. As the junior's vice principal, jim Puryear had a variety of duties. Mr. Puryear took care of building and grounds mainte- nance, organized buses and made sure all text books were returned. The four vice principals were disciplinarians and administra- tors, although sometimes they weren't our favorite people - especially when it concerned dis- cipline.

FACULTY Board proud of achievements mportant decisions concern- ing the three schools and their operations were handled by a seven-member group, the Board of Trustees. They met on the third Monday of each month and heard proposals for new development or suggestions for improvements within the school system. They also held work sessions once a month to discuss important items pending before the board. Board members for the 1979-80 school year were president Roger Hill, vice president Dr. Robert Pierce, secretary Ann Pfaff, Bar- bara Cardwell, Troy Kelly, Iohn Stipes, and Pat Norman. Superin- tendent was Dr. Iohn F. Townley. Although much of the boards' activities involved major deci- sions, one had a very obvious effect upon Nimitz - the expan- sion of the girls' gym and dressing facilities. Construction began in the summer and continued throughout the year. In addition, the teachers and administration at Nimitz - as well as at the other schools in Irving -- received a pay increase, along with paid hospital- ization, thanks to the efforts of the school board at the beginning of the year. "I think the thing that impresses me the most is that we fthe boardl are truly representative of Irving," commented Mrs. Norman who was serving her first year on the board. "There's a teacher, a doc- tor, a businessman, a homemaker, a pilot and we work well together." "The thing I'm the proudest of is our district's vocational program," commented Stipes. "When I ran in 1974, I wanted to see the voca- tional program expanded, and it's expanded greatly - not because of me - but we all worked at it together." In talking to board members, one fact emerged: they believed in the school system and the students which it served. And it was to this goal they gave up many hours of personal time . . . to serve.

The teachers' participation was typical of Nimitz spirit and close- ness. Almost all the administra- tion became involved in the vari- ous activities. Although all teach- ers participated, the volunteer class sponsors were the ones directly involved with the late- hour paint parties and the organi- zation of fund-raising projects. The senior faculty supporters really had their hands full during the year. Not only did they help in the selling of 7,152 boxes of M8zM's to the student body, they also helped out in the Taco Bell car wash. They also attended the graduating activities which included the picnic, prom, and baccalaureate exercises. The faculty also gave a helping hand at all the dances by taking tickets and arranging the sound system. They were there to see that everyone had a good time. But whether it were a class sponsor or a classroom teacher, each teacher provided a closeness and out-of-the-classroom teaching experience that helped us to see them as humans ... and as friends.

Turn-around ike Farda was named the new head football coach for Nimitz and began a three-year contract Feb. 1. For five years, the 34-year-old Farda served as varsity coach at Colorado City High School in West Texas. His teams led their districts with a 23-1 record. Prior to his arrival at Colorado City, the school had not won a dis- trict championship in any sport since 1954, with the exception of basketball in '66. Farda predicted a possible championship for Nimitz in two to three years under his program. "I like to build winning pro- grams," admitted Farda. "Motiva- tion will be our main tool." Coming to Nimitz with Farda was four assistant coaches, and they immediately began building their program. Like the year itself, Farda's coming promised a turn-around in the Viking football scene. .

P, Technically speaking fter the varsity won their first district game against Duncanville's Panthers, 51- 49, they lost to the Trinity Trojans, who were expected to win the dis- trict title. The L. D. Bell game ended in a controversial finish, as senior postman Brian Lambert fouled for the fifth time and was called on a technical when he disagreed with the referee. A Bell player took an extra shot when he should have only had one. The game's momentum shifted to Bell and ended in a Raider win. Nimitz then lost games to Irving, South Grand Prairie, and Grand Prairie. The Vikes rallied for a 66-60 defeat of the MacArthur Cardi- nals, but were beaten in a return game by the Panthers. In a rematch with Bell, the Vikings, though bent on revenge, found themselves without Lam- bert, who was out with an ankle injury. L. D. Bell took the game with help from their 6-8 postman, Ron Faurot. Subsequent wins and losses did little to change the outcome of the basketball season for the varsity. The IV, headed by Coach Mike McNeely, found themselves simi- larly placed in the district with a final record of 19-12.

Freshman coach Dennis Burton explained that though the fresh- men only totaled 14 members, the boys were divided into two teams in order to give the freshmen added experience. Having only seventboys on each team kept them off the bench most of the time. The only disadvantage of a seven-man team was that at times, the team could become spread too thin. S 4' , . T x ..

Austin and ex-varsity boys' coach, took the varsity to a 16-14 record, the best record for the young girls' program fthis is the varsity's second seasonj. Deb- bie Graves, a '79 graduate, also from Stephen F. Austin, took over the IV, while Denise LaCroix, another '79 graduate, had the task of coaching two freshman teams - one of which took the district crown. IV player Chris Watts claims that this turn around from last year could be attributed to better coaching and more talent. "It was so different from last year," Watts exclaimed. "We did less running and concentrated on shooting more than conditioning," she added. Coach Craves added her com- ment that, "I think the girls adjusted beautifully to all the new things facing them." Following district play, Coach Tiller was named the Irving Daily News Coach of the Year, and sen- ior Stacy Iurecka was named the player of the year. The voting was done by the three Daily News sports writers and the three high school coaches.

The varsity, however, got off to a slow start in the district race, falling to Bell and Duncanville in the first two games, then pulled out a close one against Trinity, 37- 35. After this loss, a four-game winning streak followed. The second half of district play was also another up-and-down battle with a major victory coming over Bell, and wins over S. Grand Prairie, Grand Prairie and Irving. "We had a major change in our game, from last year," stated Kathy Lozano. "We were more confident and had better mental attitudes," she added. Also showing much improve- ment, the IV made it known that they wanted a shot at the district crown, but saw it slowly slip away as they lost two back-to-back games to Duncanville and Trinity in the first of district play. Then the second loss to Duncanville came, 38-37, and so did the only other loss to the S.G.P. Warriors. as they romped over Nimitz by a score of 59-29. But, the Vikes bounced back in the second half of district to defeat the Warriors, 37-19. After a 10-4 season, Coach Graves attributed most of the team's success to "hussle." She exclaimed, "They may have out played us, but they never out hus- sled us."

The coaches sat at the front of the bus and discussed the game, while the players scattered through the bus to rest or think about the game. Each player's equipment was under his seat. Small talk was made by some, others relaxed. Each week ankles, wrists, fin- gers, knees and shoulders were taped at Nimitz before the bus left. ln order to see that every player was taped, trainer Bob Wright and student trainers Ieff Covington and Rocky Rhodes started taping players an hour and a half before the bus left. If the trip to the stadium took over 30 minutes, they waited and taped the players' shoulders at the stadium fieldhouse so they would be comfortable on the ride over. Once at their destination, the players walked the field looking for holes that might trip them up, reviewed assignments with coaches and each other, then the trainers checked equipment. Players then stretched their muscles beside the field house and on the field. Quarterbacks and wide receivers practiced different passing situations, then the run- ning backs practiced getting off the line. Coach Don King was happy with the players and their atti- tudes during the year - in spite of their losing streak. "Our players' attitudes have been of a very positive nature," he commented. "Coming off a win makes it easy to face a workout, but even in defeat, they worked hard and made personal sacrifices to play for Nimitz and exhibited a pride in being a Nimitz Viking," he added. After everyone had stretched their muscles and warmed up, they went back to the field house In a pre-game practice, the Nimitz dummy offense lines up to run a play against the starting defense at Cravens field. for the last time before the half. Final instructions were given, then they went outside to await the introductions of the team. After the National Anthem, each team's school song was played and the players ran through the goal posts and onto the field. The players soon lined up for the opening kickoff and indicated to the referees that they were ready.

"We did an above and beyond job on South Grand Prairie. At one point we were 15 points down and we came back to win." Behind 21-6, the Vikes fought their way into the end zone to make the score 21-13 at the half. This touchdown did something for the Vikes: it gave them the determination to win.

Ninitz took over and moved the ball to the South 21-yard line. With 32 sec- onds left on the clock, Kevin Bing- ham was called in to attempt a 37- yard field goal.

"Our boys should be com- mended for they came from boys to men in a few short months King stated. He added that, "The coach- ing staff was very professional." There was also a coaching change on the junior varsity and freshman squads. Ioe Bell was in charge of the ninth grade squad, moved to varsity, then to the posi- tion of junior varsity coach. One of the bright spots of the season was the Viking running game. But while the names of Kevin Trigg, Ronnie Kemp and David Peiser rang in our minds, it should be remembered that there would be no backfield heroes without the offensive line, "the unsung heroes." "You got to give credit to me, Waylon Hargrove and the offen- sive line," commented McDaniels. "We fthe offensive linel don't get credit for anything, and many of us are two-way starters and play- ing on the specialty teams.

"But what if the line hadn't been there? What if someone had missed a block? That hole wouldn't have been there," reasoned Newell. "Then the running back probably couldn't have gone anywhere. The line is instrumental to the team. Without them, it's 'stomp city'," he asserted. The seniors were probably the most disappointed with the out- come of the season. The seniors. as did everyone else, said they all had looked forward to the season. "I think the coaching change let us down mentally," Keith Meeks surmised. "But it takes just as much a man to be a loser as a win- ner." "After a loss," commented Ron- nie Kemp, "it's hard to come back the next week. You don't have anything to shoot for but one win." "It's not exactly like a winning season," Iimmy Howard said. "A losing record is going to be the same but you're going to be o mentally, and when you're d it's hard to rebuild," he poi out.

Behind the rushing of Mike Fritz - who gained 1198 yards - Bobby Harvey on the offensive and defensive line and Tony McGee, the team's leading tackler, the junior varsity played more consistently. "Most of Fritz's yardage was made because of his ability to break tackles and run hard," coach Bell observed. "You really don't miss someone until they are gone," he continued.

But they went down fighting, defeating Grand Prairie, 2-1, in a playoff game and earning the right to play Bell for the district crown. After losing the first game by a large margin, Coach Donna Grant had thoughts of a quick night. But that was only a thought as Nimitz came back and wiped Bell out. The third game was more enjoya- ble to the players and spectators, a game which saw each team scor- ing, but in the end, Bell pulled it out, 15-9.

She went on to add, "There were no real Superstars on this team. We had a lot of depth at every position, and eight or nine girls who could start any day of the Week." Turning to the junior varsity, Grant explained that they didn't do as well as she expected at first. "We had more talent on the IV level than any group I've coached. When things started, I felt we would do super. Yet, when they played, they started losing their shirts," Grant said.

If the weather was totally unmanageable - heavy thunderstorms or extreme cold - practice in the open-air pool was cancelled and a tough workout in the gym was set up. Gym workouts con- sisted ofthe usual stretching, followed by 150 sit-ups, and long distance running - up to two miles. Most of the time, Coach Mike Iackson had the team in the pool working hard to shave off these critical few tenths of a second, which could give them a win. "With only six members on the team, it's really hard to have a fully competitive team" commented team captain Ray Hen- dricks. Hendricks, in his second year on the team, is the only veteran swimmer this year. Coach Iackson, his second year to coach the swim team, served as coach for all three Irving high schools working with more than 80 students. When not coaching the team, Coach Iackson served as a his- tory teacher at Irving High School. t e a m , a turn 11 SPORTS Qpular out-of-schoo I Frisbee is enjoyed in many ways.

Although most of us went to school and took part in the usual activities, there were times when we wanted O-U-T. For many, non-organized sports offered that escape. Frisbee was a popular activity. Students found their way to local parks and lakes to toss the frisbee on weekends. "We had some great times. going to the park or lake and throwing the frisbee." commented Kevin Wolever. "It was a good thing to do when nothing else was happen- ing." Frisbee was enjoyed in many ways. If you were good enough. you could tip or spin the flying disc on your finger. Some of us could really get into the trickery involved in the frisbee. "I mostly like to catch the frisbee behind my back or between my legs," Kelly Shrum revealed. "I guess I get into it more if I get fancy," he added. While some students were spinning the frisbee. others were spinning their tires. A good-lookin', fast-runnin' car seemed to be the main concern for the hot rodders at school. While gapping the plugs and adjusting the timing to perfection took countless hours. most rodders were still able to take their cars out for a classy spin on Friday and Saturday nights. If you had the gas and the 52.50 entry fee, Green Valley Raceway provided the per- fect place to cure the "goin' fast itch." On Wednesdays, High School Night, the rod- ders could race until midnight, and possi- bly win a trophy or a little spare cash. Racing cars wasn't the only way to earn a few "bucks" .. , just ask the ropers who tangled with the broncs on the weekend rodeo circuit. The Viking Cowboys rustled up their western gear and moseyed on down to the rodeo most every weekend. with the Alta Vista Arena tabbed as the most popular arena for students. "The rodeo is a great place to see some really good high school riders." observed Dwight Dourough. "Most people don't realize how good some of the riders really are, "I enjoy riding bareback the most." offered Randy Otts, senior member of the Rodeo Club. "You really have to experi- ence the excitement that a person goes through when he rides bareback." But before the excitement begins, a great deal of preparation goes into barebacking.

It was a fast-moving sport that could turn a person's legs to butter. "Raquetball is a really good exercise, but it can wear you out quick," Taryn Whitley sighed. "I got started playing when I worked for the Irving Parks and Recrea- tion Dept.. and now I guess it's more or less a hobby to me," she added. Although school sports and activities offered involvement and enjoyment, each of us always needed to get out and do our own thing.

SPORTS Enrollment Build Up ed by Coach Curtis Burch, the wrestlers tried to break out of district competition, only to be disappointed as MacA- rthur took the title by a small mar- gin. But in both regional and state competition, we placed ahead of MacArthur. Outstanding wrestlers this year were seniors Brian Nelson and Blair Ward -- who, as Ward put it, worked hard for their awards. Both were state champions. Coach Burch has long recog- nized the difficulties of coaching Nimitz wrestling. A great deal of success depends on the number of -wang-gg team members and the physical size of each member. Nimitz wrestling is beginning to build up its enrollment, and through special training programs, squad members gain or reduce overall weight in order to fall into specific categories. Wrestling is more than big guys pushing each other down: it is a highly refined sport involving tim- ing, strength, and agility. Many football players participate in wrestling during off-season in order to develop these skills. Nimitz's wrestlers were not of the late Saturday night breed, as they worked improvement of techni- que and style.

Running the same basic strategy as the Dallas Tornado, Coach Ierry Inge felt that the varsity should do well. I-Ie stated that, "if everyone does their job, we'll have a good shot at district, but, if they don't, the season could be at stake." IV coach Herman Wells said that, "you have 11 players on the field and all 11 must do their job. One player can't play two posi- tions." Not meaning to say that every position isn't important, but coach Inge says that the two key posi- tions are center forward and sweeperback. Playing these two positions are Shawn Cook and Duane Coleman. Cook directs the offense and Coleman directs the defense. This season, the team received S400 from the student activity fund to cover registration, giving hope that the sport may be spon- sored in the near future. "But, until then, the team will represent Nimitz as they have in the past, with a winning attitude," said senior Scott Dean. I SPORTS WNW: K 115551.

"VVell, to me, Mr. and Miss NHS represent the best all-around students we have," observed vice principal Dollie Ripley, who was in charge of the Mr. and Miss selection. "I think a Mr. and Miss NHS should have a high academic standing, but should also display a good personality, a cheerful and opti- mistic outlook, and should be someone who works for the school," she added. Preliminary balloting of the fac- ulty resulted in 29 nominations for the coveted honor - 15 girls and 14 boys. From this "cream of the crop" came eight finalists, and the teachers balloted once again. Conrad Vickroy was selected as Mr. NHS, while I- Ramsey was named Miss NHS. "I think the choices are truly outstanding," stated Mrs. Ripley. Dressed as the maid in Neil Simon's "Cod's Favorite," Ramsey delighted the audience with her portrayal. Here, she poses for a publicity photo. "Energetic," "well-organized," "a real leader" are some of the adjec- tives used by teachers and admin- istrators to describe Ramsey. "Not only are Conrad and I- excel- lent Mr. and Miss recipients, but the finalists, as well as all the nominees, for that matter, are out- standing.

All of the girls were asked a question. Bob revealed Meladie's question as, "If she had one wish to come true, what would it be?" She answered with, "I wish all of the boys and girls in the world could have parents as great and understanding as mine, because without their help, love, and encouragement, all the great things and times I've had in my life couldn't be possible."

Who's Who is a traditional award that recog- nized one special student out of each department as being the best at what they did. To become a Who's Who, one had to show outstanding abilities throughout the year, with hard work. It took dedication and responsibility, but in the long run, it was worthwhile, to those who won. The recognition was a dedica- tion to the students' skills and tal- ent. Regardless of what category a person was in - math, science, sports, or a number of others - Who's Who made the discovery of their future seem to be a not-s0- far goal.

All the effort put forth made the award that much more distinctive to each student. The award grew in popularity this year, with the sports programs picking a Who's Who for each of their groups. The increase shot it up to 43 Who's Who awards given out for the 1979-80 year. Who's Who is a traditional award that was given during the Awards Assembly at the end of the year. The school gave the award as a special tribute to the work and extra efforts which were put out. Throughout the year, teachers and coaches watched the students to find what the specialties were of each contestant. Teachers had a wide group to pick just one stu- dent from. That one student had to be the best, and show a real interest in the subject. Patty Tay- lor, chairman of social studies, looked for a student who was also the recipient of a scholarship. It was a hard choice for some of them. But no matter how many good ones there were, they had to narrow it down to the final per- son, who showed to be the best in all of the expectations of being a Who's VVho.Q Not only does Carol DeVasher, Who's Who in art, excel in her art- istry, she also is in the choir. 1 ' Who's Who HONORS Who's Who Who's Who I I Yearbook The Who's Who selection for yearbook is Stacie Dane, who played a major role in the book's design.

"I-lelp, vve're late' fter the yearbook was turned into the publisher last year, preparations for this issue of the Valhalla was beginning. "Why so soon" we thought. But little did we know that the time was critical and could get away from us if we weren't careful. The summer vacation was no different. After the editors spent seven rainy days at Oklahoma University, under the direction of the infamous Colonel Chuck Sav- age, the theme, cover design, writ- ing style, and layout format were under construction. On August 12-15, the section editors and volunteers attended a workshop at UTA. The yearbook seminar was sponsored in part by Taylor Publishing Company, where the Valhalla is printed. It f"i'1 was at this workshop when the editors, Sandra Snow and Stacie Dane perfected the cover. To keep up the tradition, the cover is blue 144521. A whirlpool grain and stamped silver foil com- pliment the design. But by far the most notable special effect is a it 8765 die cut in the front lower left- hand corner. Within the bounds of the cover, 368 pages of enamel paper are bound together with a Smythe binding. Melior is the major types- tyle used. Although various styles and sizes are used on headlines, the purpose is to achieve a differ- ent, attractive display of modern yearbook ideas. More issues of this Valhalla were sold than ever before. On our one-day sale, 1,638 orders were taken. As the pages of the book ma their way through the assembly Taylor, Acie Mitchell, our rep sentative, worked patiently a generously to see that the Nim body would receive a book - time - they would be proud of. "Help we're late," Mr. Mitch often heard us say, but throu the countless hours fboth frustr ing and joyousj spent on the wee ends, late at night fmany tim past 2 in the morningl, during t holiday season, and even hor sick in bed, the staff worked ha. Even non-staff members, like Dc Becker and Rachael Wagn pitched in, just so the stude body, along with ourselves, cot have a personal recorded piece history of the "turned around dn ade" year at Nimitz High.

These words were not only spoken in the classroom but also ran through the minds of practically every student, not only at Nimitz, but all across America. Beginning with the 50 American hostages which had been held captive by a student radical group in Tehran, Iran, confusion practi- cally slapped us right in the face. On November 4, these fellow Americans were captured at gun point by a group of college student terrorists.

"Death to Carter" they con- tinued to shout, as US news teams "captured" them on film. But this was the beginning of a situation in the Middle East which would directly affect our future as a nation and as students. Along with these events, the Soviet Union invaded the borders of Afghanistan. This action caused questions over the U.S. boycott of the summer Olympics in Moscow. Where do we, as a nation, turn to? Besides the growing overseas conflict, a very painful, unex- pected crisis hit Nimitz High School. On Friday, February 8, Sophomore Iill DeAnn Iohnson passed away. , 'Z it Looking over a script for a Drama Dept. production, Kathy Atteberry relaxes on the stage.
