One of the biggest highlights of North Mes-
quite during football and basketball season is
the election of the queens. Being selected a
Queen holds a special meaning to each girl,
this also means the entire student body has cho-
sen each girl to represent the school in many
At right: Football Sweetheart was named, Kris Bruck. The
Homecoming Queen of the 1976 was Sandy Malone.
Below left: The Basketball Sweetheart was Jennifer Truesdell.
Below: The Stallion Battalion Sweetheart was Pam Russel. The Band Sweet
heart was Kim Boyd.
Paula Griffin is always involved in some-
thing. She performed in IV Drill. Paula
has participated in the Slide Rule Class
and traveled to many tournaments. She
has been playing Varsity Tennis this past
year. Paula was President of the National
Honor Society and the Spanish Club. For
her efforts we, the Trailblazer Staff, have
decided she deserves this honor.
Steve Elwonger has been an active mem-
ber of FCA for four years. He is in the
French Club and FHA. What he is really
known for is his running ability. Steve has
participated in many district and state
Cross-Country meets and won quite a few
awards. We on the Staff found Steve
deserved this honor.
Trailblazer Award Given to
Robin Root has dedicated much of her
time in the choir department. She has
been involved in Choir since her fresh-
man year. Robin has been honored in
most contests she has entered. She has
been to State for the past three years.
She was the Student director for the
Freshman choir. Robin was also the
Secretary for the National Honor Soci-
Brian Colwill when you hear something
about Brian Colwill it is usually about
his friendly personality or his grades.
Brian has been the President of the
Latin and Science Clubs. He was also
in the National Honor Society for three
years. Brian is interested in soccer and
was on the Varsity team. We feel he
worked hard and put a lot of time in
for this honor.
Sandi lzzarelli is a devoted girl. She has
dedicated a lot of work to the Drill
Teams. She was in l.V. Drill and Paces-
etters. Sandi was the Captain of Paceset-
ters her Senior year. She was class Vice
President both her Sophomore and Junior
years. We believe she earned this honor.
Scott Johnson played basketball during his
Freshman year. He has spent three years
on the Varsity Baseball team. He was also
a member of FHA. Anyone who knows
Scott also knows he would never miss out
on deer season. For Scott's enthusiasm we
feel he best deserves this honor.

"Let's get quiet for the morning announcements" is a famil-
iar line heard by everyone at 8:30 in the morning. Many impor-
tant items are discussed such as when to buy annuals, winners of
awards, club meetings and blood drives.
Wednesday, Ian. 19, Parkland Hospital had a very successful
Blood Drive. Students 17 and 18 got out of class to give blood -
most of them for the first time. The day ended with a total of 90

That rare phenomenon of concentration seems
to mysteriously emerge an hour before a test. In
appreciation of Mrs. Hooper's devotion to jour-
nalistic excellence, she was awarded the 1976
yearbook dedication .
Students who are exhausted with their studies
turn to daydreaming as a supplement to their nor-
mal classroom activities. But then there is the
school of thought that follows the premise of when
students are exhausted with daydreaming, they
will occasionally turn to their studies.

Entertainment is a fine break from the

entertaining programs which the Senior class
presented were Rick Presley and Texas Rose.
Both were well-liked by all the classes.
All students enjoy the time of day when
they can be with their friends and talk about
the day's events. Eating in the lunchroom is
sometimes the only time of the day that is
Exams are the less popular events of a
day. Sometimes when they are all on one

Graffiti preads the "Word"
Graffiti is that rare art form that tends to surface in homerooms and bathroom walls where a lack of interest in
schoolwork is overtaken by an intense desire to express oneself in unusual ways.
Examples of graffiti include a collage of Elton John tunes and other assorted expressions. Trailblazer staff opted to exclude bathroom graffiti

Lockers are a significant part of school because they supply the main
excuse for being late to class. Forgetting a combination or getting it jam-
med are common problems they present.
Laughter is and always will be the best medicine for a hectic day at
school. It always brightens the day and helps a long one go by faster. With-
out the class clowns and cut-ups school would not be the same.

nderclassmen Have Unusual Day
Slave day was one
day that all upper-
classmen looked for-
ward to because of all
the fun and laughter.
There were two days
of slave auctioning at
the beginning of the
week. Then the slaves
received their duties
which were carried
out on Slave Day.
To the left: Right: Slaves
enjoy wearing fashionable
attire such as Mickey Mouse
ears and motorcycle hel-

The Thrill of Victor
"V" is for victory and "W" is for
Winning. Both victory and winning were
N experienced by the Soccer teams, who
made it to district. Other groups who
enjoyed the thrill of victory were the
Baseball team who went to bi-district
and our Band and Choir who won Sweep-
stakes in UIL competition.
Class unity is a fairly new phe-
nomenon at this high school, but
it was much enjoyed by the Stu-
dent Body this year. The large
freshman class worked together
this year and got more accom-
plished as a result. The Junior
and Senior classes had more
activities than usual and the per-
sonality of the school benefitted
from it. It was a nice change.

The Faculty at N.M.H.S. has many
Trailblazers and they look less like old
fashionedteachers than the "Trail-
blazer" below. That doesn't prevent
them however from making everyone
set goals and strive to improve. The
enthusiasm and interest this faculty
shows is much appreciated by the stu-
dents Cbut generally not until the stu-

Right: Dr. Poteet at the reception with his wife and daughter.
Dr. Ralph Poteet is a warm, receptive man who works
hard to provide leadership for 23 schools with over
20 , O00 students in the Mesquite School district.
Dr. Poteet's main objective is the constant improve-
ment of the school district. This year many improve-
ments are being made, including the construction of l
West Mesquite High School, planetarium, and music 1
rooms and gyms for the elementary schools. T
Dr. Poteet is also concerned with the improvement of 1
course selections to better meet the needs of today's
students. These improvements include co-op programs, l
the introduction of a variety of Mini-courses and the l
introduction of industrial courses in the schools.
Though his job monopolizes most of his time Dr. '
Poteet does find time to be active in his church and
teach a course on Organization and Finance at a local 1
When asked about the students of the Mesquite
schools Dr. Poteet stated that after traveling all over N
the United States and, in fact, the world and visiting
many schools he finds the quality and attitude of the
students in Mesquite some of the best he has ever seen.

Above: MR. JOHN CAMPBELL
Right: Mr. Campbell is caught on his way out.
Mr. John Campbell is the soft-spo-
ken hard-working principal of NMHS.
He received his Bachelor's degree
from Texas Christian University,
where he was a member of two South-
west Conference Championship bas-
ketball teams. He received his mas-
ter's degree in Administrative Educa-
tion from North Texas State Univer-
sity. Mr. Campbell dedicates as many
as twelve hours a day to his job of
keeping the students and teachers of
NMHS happily working together. He
seems to enjoy it and says, "Working
with young people keeps you young."
When Mr. Campbell is not on campus,
he is usually on one of the many
speaking tours he takes each year. He
speaks about life and education, in his
witty manner, to youth groups, cham-
bers of commerce, and schools' facul-
ties, all over Texas. Mr. Campbell
stated that the most rewarding part of
his job is "to see some 3000 people
involved in an interrelated atmosphere
with very little strife between them. "

Histor Makes Us Look Back

History looks back ,
History looks ahead,
History tells what has
And what is to come.
History tells of war,
History tells of hate,
But History also tells
Of peace and love .
History is our past
And our future ,
And it should be treasured .

alr conditioning i s
Air conditioning provides lots of comfort
during the summer months, but for many
thousands of homeowners it is also the
biggest factor in the cost of electricity. On the
average, air conditioning accounts for about
half of summertime electric bills.
Here are ways you can hold down the cost of
air conditioning and still enjoy its comfort.
1. Set thermostat on 780, or higher, during
the summer. Turn unit off if you'll be away
from home several days.
2. Keep equipment at top operating
efficiency. Have it checked seasonally by
3. Check filter every 30 days. Dirty filters
cause equipment to use excessive
electricity. lf filter is permanent, clean by
manufacturers directionsg if it's
disposable, it should be replaced when
4. Keep furniture, draperies away from air
outlets and returns. Clean grills often.
5. Close draperies and blinds to keep out
6. Keep fireplace damper closed.
7. Proper home insulation keeps the heat
out, cuts energy use. Insulation questions?
8. Shade on roof and walls can reduce
energy needed to cool. But trim trees,
shrubs away from outside compressor
unit. Keep it free of leaves, debris. lf air
flow is blocked, unit uses more energy.
9. Weatherstrip doors and windows, caulk
cracks to prevent drafts and cool air loss.
10. Keep windows closed. Open outside doors
as little as possible.
Follow above suggestions, plus these:
11. Buy units with highest Henergy efficiency
ratio" KEERJ. Uses less electricity to cool. lf
EER is not on sales tag, ask for it or figure
it yourself. Divide Hwattage" into 'fBTU"
capacity. Both figures are on unit.
12. Place unit where it'll get as little direct sun
13. Aim air outlets at lower half of doonivay to
next room to allow warm air from that
room to enter at the doortop for recooling,
14. Never vent air conditioner into garage.
Ventilation is usually too poor for top
performance of your unit.
Conserve electricity and you help conserve
one or more of the fuels needed to produce it.
Conserve fuels and you help assure that there
will be enough to meet essential needs for
electricity in the future.
When you pass a TP8tL office, warehouse,
generating plant or other facility, you'll see
that we've turned off all non-essential
lighting. And, in as many other ways as
possible, TP8tL is reducing its own uses of
lf you would like additional information on
conserving electricity, call the Customer
Service Representative in the TP8tl. Office.

Casual Country Days End
The casual country living of Mesquite and
this high school honored in this book will con-
tinue after the seniors leave . It was a good year

building. The year ended with much celebra-
tion, banquets and an exceptional prom. We
hope that the Trailblazer captures your favorite
