during opening day assembly
ugust 30. For most of
Northeast's 1,008 students
the big day arrived with
the usual excitement and aggrava-
tion. Starting school before Labor
Day cut everyone's vacation a. bit
short, but most students seemed
ready to tackle a
new school year.
And why not? It
had been an in-
credible summer of

rediscover summer in a soap opera,
swimming pool, or at the lake.
The rediscovery was short,
however, for Tuesday arrived in
record time, and it was back to
school for a first period class. Then
came four full days before Labor
Day brought a one-day relief.

Religion finds a place
As the weekend
slowed down, students
rested from fun and
games, and focused on
a more serious note.
Religion - considered
by many as an impor-
tant aspect of life -
found its place in the
Attending church became a routine for
most students, not because they had to
attend, but because they made it a part of
"I attend church because it is a fulfilling
and wonderful experience. The fellowship
with friends and relatives makes me see life
in a more positive manner," said junior
Behind the word, religion, students
found a deeper meaning, to which they
showed much faithful allegiance.
When asked what religion meant to
him, junior Clarence Holman, a minister at
his church, said, "Religion is a way of life.
It should take a front seat in your life. It
is not always easy to be religious, but it's
Contrary to popular belief, many of the
younger generation think religion presents
a positive influence for today's society.

Senior Bill Her-
man said, "I think
religion is very impor-
tant to humanity. It
contributes in the way
we conduct ourselves,
in the everyday deci-
sions we make, and in
the total attitude and
outlook of society."
And whatis more, besides voicing their
attitudes toward religion, students backed up
their talk. When out of class, many were
actively involved in church functions and
Senior Robert Armond said, "Going to
church is fun, but it is even more interesting
when you are involved. I play the organ for
my church, and I think it's great!"
Senior Cindy Norman, a member of her
church's choir said, "Singing in the choir or
just getting involved with various commit-
tees in church makes the concept of religion
come alive. It makes

spirit was not only seen
at athletic events, for

Northeast, and finally,
fans are the best supporters we have. They
yell and cheer at the games, and they always
conduct themselves in a manner that we all
can be proud of," Mr. Smith said.
Charger spirit was evident during the
freezing temperatures in football season, the
bleak, snowy days in basketball season, and
through the creeping spurts of spring in track
"We support the Chargers year round
because we feel that our school is number one.
Northeast is the greatest," said senior Kyle
When basketball season bounced around,
the team found a lot of support and strength
in the Charger crowd.
"Our fans were always behind us. In times
when the score was tied, fans cheered us on,
and somehow, we won the games," said senior
guard Ellis Bell.

Charger license plates - everywhere, the
pride of being a Charger rang clear.
"Northeast is the best school I have
attended," said senior Shawn Wilcher. "The
students and faculty really support our Alma
Mater. I think it's great to be a Charger."
The Chargers also strived for excellence
in other areas of the school. In band, choir,
and drama, students achieved and strived to
maintain the "first class" reputation paired
"I feel that we as band members should
do our best in all of our efforts. Through this
we serve our school and show our Charger

School may have of-
ficially started on
August 30, but for
many students the 1983
school year began in
the spring of 1982. It
was then that juniors
who had been nominat-
ed for Cvovernor's School began filling out
papers, preparing audition material, and
collecting records of good grades. The 18
Boys' and Ciirls' State representatives started
preparing forms and writing thank-you notes
to sponsors in April. Would-be cheerleaders
and Chargettes endured aching muscles,
seemingly impossible routines, and sometimes
hard-driving two-year members throughout
the two-week clinics before tryouts. Students
interested in running for an office in the
Student Council election were required to
sign up in mid-April and had two to three

did future Senior
Cabinet members and officers. Fitting the
endless activities and projects into a schedule
already filled with the speech and drama
production of "The Music Man," graduation
festivities for the class of '82, completing
schedules for the upcoming school year,
altering schedules to prevent problems, and
waiting for admittance to colleges kept
everyone running to keep up with it all.
After the rush died down, most students had
to agree that the springtime of '82 was the
busiest time of 1983. - BY CHRISTY I-IICKS

The Fall produc-
tion of "The Match-
maker" was a farce
by Thorton Wilder
that followed the
antics of a female
student technical director
Amy Epperson. Many
nights were spent by the
crew building sets and
painting scenery. The
costumes had to be rented
played by Monica Palko, and Client, played
by Tom Kieklak.
"Preparation for the show took a long,
hard six weeks, but it was all worth it,'i said
director Carol Ann Davis. "The cast and
crew were so enthusiastic, and they
sacrificed many hours to make it a successfl
Davis selected the play because "it
offered a challenge to the student actorsf,
"We have a tremendous amount of talent
at Northeast," she said. "The play gave each
student a chance to expand that talent and
try new characterizations."
But more goes into a production than
meets the eye. Behind the scenes were

from ASU at Beebe. An
extra touch was added by the costume com-
Then there were lights and sound to be
adjusted, not to mention make-up and props.
Backstage was an exciting place to be with busy
people running everywhere to help out. When
the final curtain closed a variety of emotions
swept over the cast and crew. They were proud
of the standing ovation they had received and
they felt a sense of accomplishment.
"The feeling that comes over you after a
performance cannot be matched," one actor
said. "lt's a mixture of excitement, joy, and a
touch of sadness that it all has to end. But there
will always be the memories." - By Libbi

ship that involves
lovers, gangsters, and

perfect choice for the
spring musical because
it provided an area never explored by the
Carol Ann Davis, the director of the
show, said the play was chosen because it was
a "period piece" that had big production
numbers with a lot of tap dancing. Also, the
more mature generation would be attracted
to it for the "oldie goldie" tunes.
Tom Nelson, who played Billy Crocker
in the show, said, "This musical was special
because ofthe quality of people who worked
on it. They made it a great show."
When asked if all
the hard work was
worth it Nelson said,
"Anything that is
worked on and sweated
over certainly is."
who portrayed Mr.
Whitney, added, "Although it takes many
weeks of long rehearsals, the end result is
worth the practice. To see a show open with
the professional qualities of a Northeast
production makes an actor feel special."
"Anything Goes" had a cast of close to
sixty performers. Todd Godwin, who played
the gangster Moonface Martin, said, "The
bigger the cast, the better. With a large cast
it seems like there is always someone to

were replaced by par-
ents' old yearbooks.
Girls drug out their
mothers old chests and dressed themselves
in beaded necklaces and button-down shirts
pulled together with bow ties, pin-stripped
pants, and mini-skirts.
Guys also found clothing in the attic with
for 'now' look
polo shirts worn layered.
Even keeping warm
became a part of the
"new look." The
Only" jacket was origin-
ated for guys, but was
soon adopted for girls.
Goose-down jackets and vests kept guys warm
while stadium coats and leather jackets fitted
into the girls' wardrobe.
Not only the clothes changed, but also the
hairstyles. Shorter hair was in for guys and
button-down shirts, monogrammed sweaters,
straight leg jeans, and loafers.
However, not everything was out of the
past. Designers such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin
Klein, Geoffrey Beene, and Bill Blass added
their touch to the l98O's.
New styles included geometric earrings,
knit ties, leg warmers, taffeta dresses, and
girls as the "new wave" brought styles such as
French Cut, the Georgio Collection, and the
Quadrant hair styles.

Take a smile. It may be silent, but it
surely isn't simple, for its meaning can range
from "l'm glad you're here" when the

an unwanted suitor finally gets the hint.
A smile can also indicate "I know what
you're up to" as Principal james Smith spots
a Big Mac.
A point is equally versatile. It can denote
the government's invitation, "Uncle Sam

"Math in past generations

"The basics were the same. But
today's math teaches us to deal with
more complicated areas such as
aeronautics and computers."
Susie described today's world as
"fast paced" and explained that
math provides the necessary speed
for dealing with decisions.
"The need to conserve fuel is
an example of the importance of
math," she said. "For example, in
design, the length of an airplane

ued, udesigners would have to build

mathematical equation can solve

riting, too, has changed

people who must
communicate in a world where the
most remote country is only a

English teacher Miss Mala

the ability to communicate is

tion to develop the skill.
"Paper Wings" concentrated on
creativity, and senior Lisa Engster
explained the need.

she said. "But when we can express
ourselves creatively we are more

Senior Denise Clay, "Charger"

good writing requires much more
than a pencil and paper.
"To write well, a person has to
love writing," she said. "They have
to be very creative, open minded,
and alert. This is especially true in

atmosphere must be maintained."

All students, both readers and

Miss Ayers added.
"By reading different types of
literature from different cultures
and different times, students' under-
standing of the world view of other
people can be enhanced," she said.
There's no doubt about it, the
three "r's" have changed, but the
change reflects development, not
replacement. Miss Ayers explained
that literature of the past offers
lessons for the present, and through
what was written then and what is

as social studies and science were
offered to help them prepare for

American history teacher Mrs.

"History is the yesterday of
mankind," she said. "lt is man's
memory, and without that memory
there is no guide to tomorrow."
"lt is difficult to appreciate

Other future oriented classes
were 12 business courses, Mechan-

health, physical education, and five
work-study programs. While exper-

reasons for taking them varied from
person to person.

took electronics because his brother
told him it was a "fun class."
Students took home economics
because you get to eat in class, and

health because "it's required." Bur

Traditional business courses and
work-study programs offer
usiness courses were especial-
ly future oriented. Subjects
ranged from beginning
typewriting to marketing and
merchandising. Some were offered
as supplementary courses for tradi-
tional schedules, while work-study
programs - BOE, COE, ICT, M SL
DE, and CCECA - offered an
"earn while you learn" arrangement.
Mr. jim Mclvlurry, faculty
coordinator for marketing and
distributive education, a work-study
program involving 80 students,
described the arrangement as an
"excellent opportunity for par-
ticipants to become better all-
"Students in the program have
privileges that most students don't
have," he added. "For example, they
receive school credit for working,
they get to leave campus early, and
participate in activities at the local,
state, and national levels."
Clubs took over where classes
left off and offered chances for
competition, leadership, and social
development. Future Homemakers
of America involved home econ-
omics students in projects such as a
diet club aimed at promoting
proper eating and exercise.
Business students, through

one were the days when
courses such as typewriting
were reserved for the girls,
while the guys elected "manly" fields
such as electronics or construction.
For work oriented courses were in
tune with the time.
junior Debbie Kirkpatrick, the
only girl enrolled in electronics, was
a case in point.
"I took this course because I
was gonna take computer program-
ming, and they told me this would
help out," she said. 'But I didn't

presented no problems, Debbie said,

she had elected a proper course, for

Senior Angie Cook, stagecraft
student and technical director for
"Encore," said that "getting the
audience into the action" means
"lt has to look real so the
audience will feel like they are really
there," she said.
Angie added that creating "the
real thing" isn't always easy.
"Taking a high school person
and making him look 50 years old
is hard to do," she explained. "The
make-up has to 'age' him and make
him look natural at the same time.
He has to look real for the audience
to accept him."
Every member of the audience
must be able to see and hear
everything that happens on the
stage. Angie said that this requir-
ement complicates set assignments
such as the trap door that was used
in "The Matchmaker."
"Our stage doesn't have a lower
level, so the trap door had to be
designed under a platform," she
said. "The scenes on top of the
platform, which was four feet tall,
had to be visible for everyone in the
audience. At the same time, the
platform had to be big enough to
hide actors and crew members who
supplied everything from voices to
exploding tomato cans on cue.'l
Angie said that while the sets
are important, they can't take away
from the actors and action.
"Everything must compliment
everything else," she said. "The set
is built around the actors, the actors
use the set, and the audience can
enjoy the show," - By Denise Clay

their time promoting projects to
improve both the school and
Student Council's work, which
was predominantly school oriented,
ranged from sponsoring a know-

school campus, to forming a Spirit
Advisory Committee. President
Pam White called the latter an
"The Spirit Advisory Commit-
tee represents a wide range of
student organizations," she said,
"and through it numerous ideas
have been submitted for pep
assemblies and other school func-
While Student Council was
relatively small - only 33 members
- it represented the entire student
body, Pam said.
"All classes are represented,
and the meetings are open," she
said. "We want the student body to
attend so they'll know everything
about what their Student Council is
Pam called the Council a
"motivated, super group of kids."
"Everyone is so energetic and
eager that they make me want to
,work harder too," she said.
While Pam said she found
working with the Council to be
even better than she had expected,
she suggested changes that might
improve its efficiency.
"I would like to see at least the
office of secretary, and possibly the
vice president, be opened up to
juniors as well as seniors,'l she said.
"This would give more people a
chance to run for office, and it
would allow juniors to see if they
like being officers. lf they do, it
would give them experience for
their senior year." - By Chris Cvlass

president, Cvina Fowler, said that the
projects were rewarding.
"A special project was our

have a lot of company, and we
wanted them to feel loved at
Christmas. They seemed glad to see
us. It was really rewarding to me."

"Really? My idea of fitness was

For students active in the
athletic department, good sports-
anship was being the best. Yet
beneath the surface, being the best,
like anything else, took more than
a little effort. That effort was in
every lap around the track, every
spike across the net and in every
football practice in the hot evening
sun. And for each point scored,
each game won, and each first-place
finish, the effort was always worth
it. - By Christy Hicks

Coaches stress exercises,

Physical exercise plus
mental exercise equal suc-

defensive coach john Nar-
rx '4'V'.4.. WZ-V, Elllr kinsky.
lxxphlw "lf the players are not
" li ready physically they cannot
' perform to their ability," he
said, "and if they aren't in
shape mentally, they can't
cope with game pressures."
Getting in shape physically requires strenuous
exercise, Coach Narkinsky said. "That means
two-a-day practices in August in lOO'degree weather.
We do a lot of running, weight lifting, drills, and
calisthentics. While we try to make them fun,
exercises are a necessity."
Head football coach Neal Estes added that
adequate exercise results in speed and strength -
both necessities for success.
Coach Estes also stressed the importance of
mental exercises that he called "priorities"
"A young athlete must adopt priorities such as
discipline and enthusiasm," he said. "The goal is a
complete organization with no mental breakdown of
any of the priorities." - By Rex DeI.oney

Cooperation is a necessity
where football is concerned
Football success depends
upon mental attitude as well as
strength or playing ability,
senior tight end Tim McDaniel
I "The most important thing
" i159 that a team needs is to play
together as a team," he said.
"They need to have a good
team attitude and help one another."
According to McDaniel, dedication, good
attitude, perseverance, and cooperation contribute
the most to a player's success.
"A player has to be coachable and listen to the
coaches," he explained.
The support that is given to the football team
by the fans is very important for a successful season,
McDaniel said. I-Ie added that the cheerleaders, drill
team, the student body, teachers, and administration
do a great job in supporting the football team.
The football team was made-up of many more
hard workers than were seen out on the field. Five
managers - Tim Miller, Mike Calvin, Terry jordan,
james Thomas, and Richard Woodworth - helped
the team by preparing for practice, supplying water
for the players, and aiding injured players.
The coaching staff consisted of head coach Neal
Estesg John Tally, offensive and defensive line coach,
Gary Davis, defensive end coach, john Narkinsky,
linebacker coachg jerry Copeland, secondary backs
coach, and student-coach Bill Dent, punting and
McDaniel explained that even though each
coach had a certain group of players to work with,
all the coaches worked together.
McDaniel said that mental preparation is a
major part of getting ready for a game. Studying the
other team's plays and learning about the key players
on the opposing team are both part of a player's
The team gets mentally ready to play by praying
or meditating before the game. This helps build

Senior maids included Nancy Burgett, Marla

Nightly festivities continued with pre-game
ceremonies in which Hensley was escorted onto the

from Student Council President Pam White, a
Charger blanket from Senior Cabinet President

Drive and determination
make for Winning season
Someone once said that
"success on the football field is
two percent luck and ninety-
eight percent sweat and hard
work." The Northeast team
I Q lived by that theory and proved
ij EO to be a major contender in the
conference for the 1982 season.
The players had the sweet taste
of success many times during
the year and they earned their victories. Was all the
work and endless practice worth it?
"Sure," said senior member Matt Stovall. "We
had worked for the State Championship, and
although we did not reach it, we were better and
learned more from the experience."
Northeast had some close calls, but the game of

the season seemed to be the one against Jacksonville.
Stovall said, "lt was the best game we played all
year. They Uacksonvillej had the longest winning
streak in the state, and we ended it."
The season did not turn out as well as the team
had hoped but over all, it was a good year. The team
kept spirits up and pushed to reach its goals. "We
were not going to give up," Stovall said. "There was
always something worth going on for." - By Libbi

li "When school starts, we
begin our preparations for the
upcoming basketball seasons," he said. "Coach CNickj
Tschepikow's primary emphasis during this time is
on running and Weightlifting."
However, Richard added that September practice
is actually a continuation.
"A basketball player is most likely to do most
of his preparation during the summerfi he said. "This
is when he can work on his individual game from
playing against good competition."
Senior Gibby Lemon said that formal practice
begins with preseason practice in November.
According to Richard, all types of practice are
aimed at overcoming a lack of height.
"Coach Tschepikow believes that since we are
not a very tall team, we needed to work especially
hard on our strength and endurance," he said.
Gibby added that running is a necessity, and the
players have to be in shape.
"A basketball player is in shape when he is
completely injury free and can complete a practice
session or game without being worn out," he said.

Team unity means
C putting team first
The most important in-
gredient in building any basket-
ball team is unity, head coach
Nick Tschepikow said, and to
achieve that a player has to know
his role and what he does best.
"Team unity has to come
from the coach, the players, and
those on the bench, Tschepikow
said. "Working together builds a
competitive team, and the players don't care who gets
Team captain Ellis Bell said that team unity isn't
"There has to be a will to play team ball, and
certain sacrifices have to be made," he said. "The most
important ingredient is being unselfish and helping
out the other players."
Conditioning also promotes unity, Bell said.
"Pre-season conditioning unites the team," he said.

Close look at cheerleading

"Cheerleading is more
than just jumping up and down
on the sidelines,'l Jill Ammons,

many extra hours on other
things besides games."
Cheerleading r e q u i re -

In addition, squad members were constantly
responsible for representing the school.
Another responsibility was the improvement of
inter-school relations, and the squad hosted a dinner
for Qle Main cheerleaders on the day of the
Charger-Wildcat game. Captain Liz Martin said both
squads "could have talked and laughed for hours."
Ammons added insight to squad motivation.
"Even though cheerleading takes a lot of time
and energy, it's worth it," she said. "The good times
will stay with us forever." - By Libbi Dixon

perform all year
They played in the spring, but
'I V golf, tennis, and track team
X ' members were a whole lot more
K than "fair weather" jocks. Their
year-long conditioning pro-
grams and their experience,
' QEQI . which often dated back to
' T elementary school days, indicat-
ed a total commitment.
The nine-member golf team, coached by Bill
Dunaway and Gary Davis, played one tournament
a week through March and April, and finished the
season with the AAAAA Championship tour-
nament in May.
Coach Dunaway described the team as "young,
but competitive," and junior Bart l..and's pre-season
prediction was optimistic.
"We should be able to compete pretty well and
hang tough," he said. "We may not win all the time,
but we'll be alright."
Bart, who began playing golf five years ago,
added that the "win some, lose some" description is
typical of golf.
"One day you shoot real well, and the next day
maybe you don't," he said. "That's what makes it a
challenge, and it's a different challenge every day."
Good golf player's are both "made and born,"
according to sophomore Tory Cruse.
"You have to be born with a little talent," he
said. "For example, people who are born with a
natural swing don't have as far to go to learn to play
While golf is an individual sport, the team aspect
is very much a part, Tory said.
"Everybody gives you a lot of support," he said.
"You even get support from the people on the other
teams." - By Chris Glass

Track athletes were some
of the school's most dedicat-
- ed, and the dedication was
the result of "the right
attituden, according to junior
A shot putter, Shawn Neasley.
,iii You have to really want
K- to win," she said. "That's what
f' Q it takes to stay in shape and
l' ' keep at it."
Mrs. Gilda Shuffield coached the girls' track
team, and a preseason prediction from junior
Charlotte Watson was that the team would finish in
third place. john Talley coached the boys' track team,
and junior Chris Flake predicted a second place
However, the team can only finish as well as the
individual athletes perform. Senior Steve Ware who
ran the 880 and 100 yard dash, said he constantly
tried to "be the best."
"lt's the good of each individual to be the best
athlete in his event in the state," Steve said. "I want
to be the best athlete around, and ifl should succeed
l then try for the ultimate goal, the school record."
Being the best meant being in shape, Steve
"And it's hard to put a time frame on how long
it takes to get in shape," he said.
Steve added that the individual aspect of track
does not replace the importance of the team.
"You do not think of it as being an individual
sport," he said. "lt takes you and your teammates to
win a championship, and when you think like that
you have team spirit." - By Rex Del.oney

"This year is unique. You
can see it in our actions. We want
to leave our mark."
So said Senior Cabinet pre-
sident Tiger Taylor when asked
about his cabinet.
Enthusiasm and initiative
played a big part in the success of
the group, Taylor said. He added
that the Cabinet planned for
more involvement, a change in
the senior movie project, and the
possible change to an off-campus
prom. The prom effort took top
priority, he said.
Fund raisers included the
regular flower sales, dances, and
basketball concessions. But
changes were made there as well.
"The senior movie was not the
fund raiser of the past," Taylor
said. "This year it was a current
movie presented at an exclusive
rate for Northeast at midnight,

took hard work. Cabinet
members spent their time
promoting, preparing, and
pointing out needed changes."
Members spent Saturday
nights in late summer con-
structing their pride and joy -
the wooden '83. At basketball
games they manned the conces-
sion stand, pouring cokes,
laughing a lot, and pushing
popcorn. At their Friday night
all-school dances, members
often managed a quick spin on
the dance floor and then took
turns as "ticket taker."
The end of the year meant
pride for the class of '83 that
was reflected by Taylor.
"We don't just participate, we
put all our effort into everyth-

way to say it. Weire the best

Seniors battle high cost of living
Being a senior carried a lot of
prestige, but the price tag was
equally high. There were senior
portraits, caps and gowns, gradua-
tion invitations, and college
Yale Funk described the expen-
ditures as inevitable.
"lt just goes with being at the
top," he said. "You want to do
everything so you go ahead and
pay it. But it does add up. just
about everyday you come to
school you have to spend mon-
A part-time job was out of the
question for many. Yale was "too
busy at school."
"My dad pays it for me," he
said. "I used money from a
summer job at first, but that
didnit last long."
Libbi Dixon did find time for
a part-time job, and she said the
extra money helped.
"I have to ask my parents for
so many expenses," she said, "and
they always give what I need. But
I try to earn my own spending
Libbi added that most seniors
expect the expenses.
"You hear announcements
when you are a sophomore and
junior," she said, "and you hear
others talk about them. But you
don't pay much attention until
you get to be a senior and they
become 'your' expenses."
Prom was a major expense with
S100 prom dresses and S45 tuxedo
rentals. However, in spite of the
cost, most seniors considered the
prom a benefit.
"lt's the biggest, most important
thing in your life this far," senior
Denise Maness said. "Finally
youire a senior, and you get to go
to prom. You're willing to spend
the money because it only comes
once." - By Michelle james

Girls buck the basketball system
Five seniors and three juniors
beat the "no girls' basketball"
problem by forming their own
team. They called themselves the
Amazons, and, according to
senior member Lisa Engster, their
efforts made a point.
"We were able to show the
school district that we want to
play ball even if it means
spending our own money and
giving our own time," she said.
The team also made an impact
in their five-team league. During
the '82 season they finished first
with a 5-1 record, and in '83 they
bettered that record to a 9-1 tally.
Not bad for a team that's only
played two years. Lisa attributed
the success to the team's coaches,
johnny Mitchell and Louie Sul-
"They are two real good
coaches who have taken our
individual talents and combined
them to make a successful team,"
she said. - By Karen Salmon

takes time out from skating for a game of
foos-ball. Other rink favorites included
video games and snack bar.
Skating was a popular pastime
for a number of students who
found the sport to be a pleasant
source of fun and exercise.
A typical faithful enthusiast
was senior Raymond Smith who
skated each Monday and Wednes-
day nights at either Skate City or
He said he picked those nights
because they were "disco nights."
"A lot of the fun of skating has
for fun and Htness
to do with the music that you
skate to," he said. "I like disco
music, so l go on those nights."
Raymond, who said he skates
about.1O hours a week, described
skating as cheap entertainment in
a friendly atmosphere.
I-le recognized its potential as a
source of exercise and a competi-
tive sport, but to him the hobby
was just "fun," - By Rex

Tests have good and bad points
Exams can be a headache, but
the semester tests administered
Jan. Z4-26, had their good points
too. They gave students three
days of open campus between
Semester tests were introduced
at Northeast during the 1982
spring semester. The teachers
decided whether or not to give
the tests, and regular classes were
scheduled between exams.
All that changed in 1983.
Teachers were required to give
exams in a routine similar to
college schedules. One test was
given from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and
another from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Sophomore Natalie Jeffers said
that open campus was a good idea
because it gave students a chance
to study. She also said that she

"It gave us more experience at
taking tests,', she said. "And I
even remembered a lot more than
I thought I would."
Senior Wendy Ward said the
tests meant too much on grades.
"These tests are to prepare me
for college," she said. "But now I
need something to prepare me for
high school. I guess we need them,
though because I don't want to be

Principal james Smith said that
the response to the semester
exams was favorable.

Rappelling challenges adventurers
"Working your way to the top"
was a phrase to be taken literally
by an adventurous group of
seniors who shared rock climbing
as a hobby. According to senior
Greg Powell, rock climbing is a
challenge, and that is his main
reason for climbing.
"l feel that l have to overcome
my own fears and the rock as an
obstacle," said Greg. "I've always
enjoyed the outdoors, and rock
climbing is one of the most
challenging things l've found."
Powell and his friend, senior
Steve Blevins, learned to climb
while on a Young Life campout,
and they have climbed ever since.
Greg explained why he enjoys
"The best thing about climbing
is that you never have to climb
the same rock twice, there will
always be another cliff some-
where," he said.
One move that has become
popular is rappelling, a means of
descension. lt requires little or no
experience, and it can be breath-
taking, and according to Greg,
Greg added that most rock
climbers hate the move more than
"I think it's because itis the only
move where the climber relies
totally on equipment, and not on
his own knowledge and ability,"
When asked what was so much
fun about climbing a rock in the
middle of the woods out in the
cold, Greg answered, "lt's just fun
getting outdoors with some
friends and having a good time."

Field trips were used in a

The newspaper staff's trip to
the "Arkansas Gazette" was one
such experience. The trip was
planned by adviser Gail Hopkins,
who called it a lesson in compari-

their size, are working toward the

would be beneficial for students
to see that the work of profession-

al journalists is a lot like the work
that the "Star" staff members do."
Another popular field trip was
the stagecraft students' trip to the
Arkansas Reperatory Theatre in
Little Rock. Stagecraft teacher
Steve Brown planned the trip in
connection with an assignment
he gave his students to design
their own theater.
"This trip gave students ideas
to use in their own projects," he
said. HSeeing professionals work
helped students understand the
Senior Shannon Hardy said the
trip was enlightening because it
showed "how much and how little
you can do with."
"It also gave us a chance to
experience the challenge involved
in working around a theater,"
Other field trips included the
business law students' trip to
municipal court, the world prob-
lem students' trip to Bill Clinton's
inauguration ceremonies, and the
home economics students' trip to
Dillards' home center.

for drastic measures

While the 3:30 bell meant the
end of the school day, it rarely
meant the end of work. For then,
classwork was replaced with "real
work," better known as home
A typical demand was, "Clean
your room,', and the task was
usually a challenge. For hasty
morning departures left unsightly
messes. There were empty Coke
cans, scattered electric rollers, wet
towels, and abandoned hair
To make matters worse, your
logic, "Why clean it now, the day
is nearly over," wouldn't work on
junior Anthony Turner admit-
ted that the sight was "trying"
"I always wish that something
terrible will happen to my car so
I can just sit at school instead of
going home," he said.
Other traditional chores in'
cluded raking leaves to the curb
for the city to vacuum, emptying
the dishwasher in time for dinner,
taking out the trash for the Friday
garbage pick-up, and feeding the
dog during a December rain-
There were ways to ease the
pain. Senior jackie Curry had a
plan that combined a friend, a
phone, and a chore.
"I have to clean my room and
do the dishes," she said, "and I
hate those dishes. So I call up a
friend and talk on the phone
while I work. It takes my mind off
those dishes and makes the time
jackie added that putting off a
chore adds to the misery.
"My mother comes in and says,
jackie, get up and start doing
your work, and you can't go
anywhere until you finishf I work

stay homef' she said. - By

to be proud of the school because

item for all ages. Photo by Angie Cook
Students' initials express style
The name game
"You name it" took on a new
meaning as the year went by. It
seemed impossible to walk down
any hallway and not see initials
Monogramming was the thing
to do. Everything from wallets, to
purses, to shirt collars were
covered with capital letters and
the monogram styles seemed as
unique as the students. Senior
loan Pickering liked the idea.
"I think it's really great, and it's
stylish looking too,', she said. "I've
got sweaters that are mono-
grammed, and I love wearing
ulvlonogramming gives a per-
son his own stamp of who he is
in his dressing," she continued. "It
allows everybody a chance to be
unique, and sometimes that's not
the easiest thing to do."
Senior Wendy Ward agreed.
ulvlonogramming keeps you
from looking like everybody else
in the school," she said. "It's your
way of saying who you are. A lot
of people I've met think it's just
for the 'die hard' preppies, but I
think it's a look that anyone likes.
"Not all of my friends are
preppiesf, Wendy added, "but
they still like monograrnming. I
think it looks nice on most
everybody. It's also a look that
never really goes out of stylef'
Monogramming served a dou-
ble purpose for many. It allowed
students a chance to identify what
was theirs in a stylish way.
Said loan, "One thing about it,
you always know what's yours."

Boys Club players enjoy fun
Basketball at the Boys'
Club, which involves over 50
teams, may be the fastest grow-
ing sport in town. The secret to
its popularity is simple, accord-
ing to senior Tim White, a
member of the Network team.
"lf you like to play, you get
to play," he said. "You still play
to win, but it's just for fun."
"You do what you want to
do with it."
Senior Tim McDaniel, a
member of the Mules team,
"What I like best about
Boys' Club basketball is the
relaxed atmosphere," he said.
"You're out there to win and to
have a good time, but there is no
pressure, and anyone can go out
there and have fun."

Rim Recker team member, said.
"When you play against
your friends and people you
know, you have a sense of self
pride that makes you want to be
the best," he said. "When these
factors are present, it makes you
want to play harder to win."
For a S5 membership card
the players learned basketball
skills. But that wasn't all.
"Boys' Club basketball
teaches athletes how to play
together as a team," McDaniel
said. "And without a coach, a
team has to really play together."
Exercise, too, is a benefit,
senior Alfred Matthews, a
member of the O. D. Funk team,
"Running up and down the
court keeps you in shape," he
said. "You want to win, and that
takes every ounce of strength
you have." - By Rex DeLoney

The T-shirt has transcended
time, sex, and social levels and
provides the latest battlefield in
the on-going squabble of the
battle of the sexes.
In number of slogans, women
take the lead in proclaiming their
superiority. They brag, "When
Cvod created man she was only
joking," and they advise, "Never
underestimate the powers of a
woman" or "The best man for the
job is a woman."
A variety of women's T-shirt
slogans referred to "inferior men."
A sample included "Of course
God made man first. You always
make a rough copy before you
create a master piece."
Another conceded, "A woman
has to do twice as much as a man
to be considered half as good.
Fortunately it's not difficult."

Americans spend money for fun
The video craze
The video craze is addicting.
Americans of all ages spend
millions of quarters a week
matching their wits against the
likes of the ghost in Pac Man, the
gorilla in Donkey Kong, or the
flying hot dogs in Mega-Mania.
Also, Atari and Intellivision
home games are a hot item.
Junior Pat Smith, an accom-
plished video game player, spends
six to eight hours a weekend at
arcades. He prefers The Electric
Cowboy, but he recommended
Arnold's or Smiley's as "the best
place to go if you want a lot of
tokens for a dollarfl
Pat, who referred to his interest
as a pastime rather than an
addiction, said the games were
expensive at first.
"I was spending S5 a night, but
I got better, and now I spend
about two or three bucks a
weekend," he said.

manager of the Golden Nugget

reason is hard to pinpoint.

The school board doesn't

when making program changes,
according to Lyon.
"With the new math, for
instance, we found that many
students didn'r have a good
foundation in basic math by the
time they got into high school.
We re-evaluated that program,"
In the future, the school board
plans on giving emphasis to math,
science and computers.
"We are fairly blessed with the
computer system in our schools,"
Lyon, who has served on the
school board for 12 years, said that
serving so long gives him a
chance "to keep abreast of what

Operating the North Little
Rock School District demanded a
variety of tough decisions from
Superintendent George Miller,
the man in charge. He met those
decisions, which covered topics
ranging from an off-campus prom
to a court ordered desegration,
with characteristic wit, candor
The basis of his objection to an
open-campus policy, which would
allow students to leave campus for
lunch, was typical of his style.
"We don't believe in it," he
said. "lt creates too many prob'
lems in a crowded situation."
Another decision concerned an
off-campus prom that Senior
Cabinet members wanted for
Northeast. Mr. Miller rejected the
idea and in October reiterated his
"Absolutely not," he said. "I've
already expressed myself on that."
He had reasoned earlier that an
off-campus prom would create
problems which school officials
could not control.
Mr. Miller was equally adamant

"I think that commercial tran-

he said, "but the school district

Desegration of the school
district has been an issue for more
than a decade, and the district has
been under a Supreme Court
order to desegrate since 1970. The

Staff members compliment careers with hobbies
Teachers are people too
Contrary to popular belief,
teachers are people too, and they
do have a life after 3:30 p.m.
Take construction teacher
Coach Curtis Clay, for example.
His hobbie is woodcarving, and
he has a collection ranging from
animal figures to wooden tables.
Two new instructors, Steve
Brown, who teaches stagecraft,
and his wife Karen, who teaches
history and math, enjoy making
their own music. She plays the

CCECA coordinator Harold
Stark, a jogging enthusiast, spends
his afternoons utruckingn through
Lakewood to keep in shape. A
music buff too, he eases the pain
with earphones tuned to the
sounds of KLAZ '98.
During the summer of '82,
several staff members became
world travelers. Librarian Elaine
Carpenter made a trip to Russia,
Spanish teacher jan Scholl took a
group to Mexico, business law
teacher Debbie Pyle lecl a tour in
Europe, and administrative assis-
tant Charlotte Moore visited
Yellowstone National Park. '
English teacher Kathy Smith is
a soap opera and game show fan,
and she achieved a summer goal
when she appeared as a contestant
on "The Price Is Rightf'
The staff was industrious, that's
for sure. But there were times
when their hobbies were not so
strenuous. English teacher Ann
McCollum, an ardent Razorback
fan, preferred "the simple life."
"I enjoy just going to the movie
and making light of a little leisure
time,', she said. - By Michelle

Where teachers become students
PE T workshops
PET, Program for Effective
Teaching, is a program designed
to revive and improve the quality
of teaching skills used in public
Outlined over a six week
training course, PET gives
teachers the opportunity to
display their skills before a new
classroom - PET instructors.
Here, teachers are critiqued on
their style and effectiveness.
After various sessions are
completed, and teachers return to
their normal classrooms, they are
observed by a PET administrator.
Some teachers recall that this
situation is a little uncomfortable.
Math teacher, Alice Gad-
berry, said, "When an administra-
tor comes to observe us Cteachersl,
we get a little nervous just like
students at test time. We want to
do our very best."
PET is a requirement for all
trators. The program involves the
higher officials so that they can
become closer to students and
more involved in the daily
schedule. And some officials
really find the program beneficial.
Principal james Smith, who
was one of the first to enroll in
PET, said, "I think PET is an
excellent program. It has brought
me closer to our students, and our
teachers have been very enthu-
siastic about it."
But, most important in the
situation of PET is its effective-
ness. New ideas and prospectives
have arisen, and it is the teachers'
duty to use them.
"I think PET ideas are very
important to the educational
system," said Alice Gadberry.
"Some of the techniques we learn
from PET are in effect and have
been very effective thus far." -

War Memorial Stadium draws quite a
crowd when the Razorback football team
is in town.
"I've been there when you had to
park miles away and walk to the stadium
only to be faced with a line that reaches
almost to where you parked your car," one
Razorback fan said.
The Razorback football team, better
known as the l-logs, spends a great deal of
time preparing for the Little Rock games.
An average week consists of 30 hours of
weight lifting, play learning, and pep
talking. The concentration on Coach Lou
Holtzls face shows the importance of being
mentally prepared. Kyle Mobbs, a North-
east football player and I-log fanatic, said
he relates to this well.
"I know how hard you practice when
you know you're playing for a crowd that
won't give up, and that's just high school
ball. I can imagine how it is playing for
the Hogs," he said.
All the work and energy create an
atmosphere known only to those who
have ever attended a game filled with
marching Razorbacks, chanting pom pon
girls, spirited cheerleaders, and loyal fans.
"All these things leave our memories

"To get an instructor for one hour
it cost S12 dollars," he said. "To rent a

Pilots have to fly with supervision
until they earn a solo license. That
requires at least 20 hours of flying time
with a licensed instructor. After that, it
is up to the instructor to decide whether
the pilot is ready or not.
"It is left to him," Brett said. "If he

to fly by himself then heill give the kid
his solo license."

Dillardls department store in McCain
Mall. Dillard's is one of many stores in
North Little Rock that offers a variety of
shopping opportunities. These opportuni-
ties range from large shopping malls where
a person can find everything from Anti
Woodcraft, to pretzels with Champaigne
cheese, to lasercraft. Speer said that she
liked shopping malls because they are
convenient and offer a large variety. She
explained, "lf you go to an individual store
you just find one specific thing, but in a
large mall there are many stores to find
everything you need without running all
For the more rugged shopper, there
are places such as Cowboy Corner for
Western wear and Oshman's for camping
equipment. Senior Bradd Estes said he
thought that the best place to find cowboy
boots is Cowboy Corner.
The small individual stores offer
everything from stained glass from

An old landmark
One of the landmarks best
known to North Little Rock is the
Old Mill. The Old Mill was built in
1933. It remains as a historic replica of
life in Arkansas nearly 100 years ago.
The building is constructed of
concrete, representing stone, wood,
and iron. The wheel is constructed
entirely of wood. Among the Old
Mills special features are the trees
formed in the shape of bridges, plant
life, and a large body of water that is
circulated by the paddle wheel.
The landmark is known not only
to North Little Rock but to the rest
of the state as well. People travel many
photograph its surroundings
The Old Mill gained nati
recognition when it was shown in
opening scene of the popular mo
"Gone With the Wind."
Numerous other pastimes
carried out at the Old Mill. Stud
use the landmark for fishing, d
feeding, picnicking, or just a few q
moments alone, and the Old Mi
a popular wedding sight.
But whatever the activity,
Old Mill is definitely an advantag
the community. - By Marla H

dancing, or the two step. I
For the more "citified" crowd, the
Waltz and the Fox Trot were more suitable
The Gigolo, Body Slam, the Walk, f
and the Robot were symptoms of the "cool
"I like to Body Slam because the
music that goes with it is really sharp,"
commented senior Chris Glass.
"The Gigolo is my style. I guess it's
because everyone else does it," sophomore
jim Bailey added.
"I like to Square dance because it
takes more than two people to really
dance. It lets me enjoy the company of
more than one person at one time. Plus,
it's exercise that's good for everyone," said
senior Kim Wilkins.
'No matter what the dancer's prefer- -
ence, the fun began on the first beat and
I everyone was "in the groove" from the
word "go." "I like to dance because it lets

Seniors Melanie Brown and Linda
Glover watch as jockeys make their way
to the starting gate during the racing
season at Oaklawn in Hot Springs.
The 56-day season, which started in
February and ended in April, was a
favorite tradition and was especially
popular in '83 when warm weather
enticed weary scholars to abandon
classes and head for the track.
About 1,296,635 fans attended the
races in 1982 and wagered Sl59,000,000.
What was the attraction? Senior Melanie
Brown attributed it to finances.
"1 like to win money, and 1 usually
win,', she said. "1t's never more than S5
though. 1 don't bet that much."
Senior Brad Estes liked the
challenge. "1 go and just try to break
even," he said, "but 1 usually win. 1 bet
S2 tickets and come out about S20
Senior Michelle james had a
different reason for going to the races.
"1 don't bet 'cause 1'm too cheap,
and 1 don't like to lose my money," she
said. "1 just go for the atmosphere." -

Smiles warm up days
The brightest days weren't always sunny, for when
a Charger smile began, the grayest moments turned to
visions of spring.
Smile prompters were abundant from September to
May and a walk down the hall was sure to be grin filled.
What caused all the happiness?
For seniors passing Mrs. Hilliard's mythology test was
enough, but thoughts of graduation helped.
juniors smiled when stepping up from "sophomore-
hood" while the absence of "bug" collections and biology
thrilled many souls.
Sophomores always wore smiles if only because of
their entrance into the realm of the Chargers.
But no matter what the class, all took every
opportunity to flash a smile. They were seen upon the
announcement of the Homecoming Court. They
reappeared as the final score of the cross town rivalry
proved Northeast number one. The end of semester test
week brought many smiles. And as the year came to a
close with scheduling assemblies, "senior skip day," and
finally graduation, the uncontrollable smile surfaced.
Through thick and thin, and happy and sad, a smile
was always found. For the hearts of Chargers were filled
with emotion when a smile was shown their way. As one
smiler stated: "A smile isn't a smile until you give it awayin

DESIGNERS DECISION - Business
manager Cheryl Sloan makes the final
decision on type for the ad section.
They COITIQ at the worst
From September through March, a yearbookers
life is dominated by deadlines. And they come at the
worst possible times.
First year staff member Libbi Dixon described the
situation as a "hectic learning experience."
Sometimes it gets so bad that you want to quit
- just walk out and say 'no more'," she said. "But once
that final copy sheet is finished, the relief is wonderful.
You feel really good."
Deadlines were especially hectic for photo-
"You get ulcers," Beth Brady, first year
photographer, said. "The pressure is constantf'
Head photographers Mark Donnell and Greg
"It's never ending," Mark said. "On our only snow
day I was here at nine o'clock to print a picture so
we could meet a deadline."
CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN - Head photographer Greg Powell
climbs to all heights to get the perfect picture.

Staffers recall 'frustration'
Deadlines and frustration are synonymous. For
senior Chris Glass "frustration" came in January.
"Right after Christmas we were assigned a spread
and told to finish it on the same day," she said.
Copy editor Christy Hicks recalled a unique
"Writing copy with 20 people running around
talking, laughing, and getting layouts together while 1
try to put sentences on paper shows me that I've got
more 'pluck' than one of those amputees in a
handicapped movie," she said.
Business manager Marla Hardwick took over the
position when senior Cheryl Sloan moved.
"lt was definitely a trying experiencef' she said. "lt
was hard enough losing Cheryl, but I had to take over
her job. l still haven't brought myself to take her name
off the business manager drawer."
Art editor Rex DeLoney was frustrated too.
"You finish your spread, turn it in, and the
pressure is off," he said. "But then you suddenly hear
your name called. You've made a mistake, and you have
to do the whole thing over again."
