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 the 1982 World's Fair, the space- fantasy, "E.T.," campaigns for an off-year election, the birth of a royal baby, and delegates to both Boys' and Girls' Nation. The annual au- ditorium assembly included Principal james Smith's "work and play" speech, junior and senior class yells, and the sophomores' expected "Mickey Mouse" label. Yet beneath the surface, changes were visible. Girls traded their walking shorts and bathing suits for mini-skirts, low-heeled shoes, and culottes. Boys dressed up more than down, STICK-UP - Seniors Barry' Martin and Wess Mullen clown around while on a tour of the State Capital during Boys' State.

A smaller student body meant a smaller faculty and more "one- shot" classes. The "one-shots," such and calculus, gave most students schedule problems, and the guidance office became the "jammedest" place to be. A new home- room system added another classroom to locate, and five minutes to "waste," "get caught up," or "whatever." At the sounding of the noon bell, students scattered to find lunch spots, buy parking spaces and school supplies, and 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.

Photo by Robert Miller 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 weekend's schedule. Attending church became a routine for most students, not because they had to attend, but because they made it a part of their lives. "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 Andrea Pounds. 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 worth itf' Contrary to popular belief, many of the younger generation think religion presents a positive influence for today's society. FELLOWSHIP - A group of Northeast students use a few minutes of rehearsal time to fellowship with Students make it a part of their daily lives 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 organizations. 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.

In the words that were so frequently spo- ken by Principal james Smith, "the fans make the Chargers specialf' "Our students and Charger pride and spirit rings clear in all situations But, the Charger spirit was not only seen at athletic events, for students showed their spirit daily. There were Charger T-shirts, giant foam hands, signifying the first class style of 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 season. "We support the Chargers year round because we feel that our school is number one. Northeast is the greatest," said senior Kyle Stane. 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. 1Z!Student life, Charger spirit 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 with Northeast. "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 pride and spirit," said drum major Kelly Sheffield.

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 l4!Student Life Students prepare for upcoming year start weeks for making cam- paign posters and but- tons, and writing speeches. Those inter- ested in becoming Council representatives signed up in May, as 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 y I 5.

"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 technical director Steve Brown and his from ASU at Beebe. An extra touch was added by the costume com- mittee. 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.

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." Spring musical showcases big production numbers When asked if all the hard work was worth it Nelson said, "Anything that is worked on and sweated over certainly is." jeff Seabaugh, 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.

Then fashions for now Fashions took a different look in 1983, but traces of the past could still be found. Fashion magazines 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 Fashions flirt with past for 'now' look polo shirts worn layered. Even keeping warm became a part of the "new look." The lightweight "Members 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.

Twins don't always agree, and when this happens, they find a quick and easy way to solve the problem. Sophomore Denisha Wilkins said, "When we disagree on what to wear, we just don't dress alike. We share a room, and sometimes, like everybody else, we argue. The argument usually starts a pillow fight that ends in a big laugh for both of us." The relationship between twins is very special. Their attitudes toward each other differs greatly from the constant groans of older children complaining because younger children are always underfoot, and the whinning of younger children because they cannot go as many places as their older sister or brother.

Photo by Angie Cook Body language Silence can speak - louder than words, especially when it's reinforced with body language, that uni- versal lingo that leaves little room for misunderstanding. 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 appearance of a substitute teacher cancels a dreaded test to "l'm glad you're gonei' when 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 wants you," a junior's class ring selection, "I want this one," or an opponent's view of Ellis Bell's court prowess, "He went that-a-way." A "scared look" can mean a senior lunch Silence beats words when body language reinforces the message skipper waiting to see Mr. Andrew Beavers, a tardy scholar approaching an Honor Society meeting, or a blue- robed senior walking across the football field for his graduation diploma. A simple yawn can mean "I'm sleepy" in sixth period geometry, 'Tm bored" during homeroom, or "l'm satisfied" when the basketball team beats Ole Main twice in the same season. While silent expression is usally effective, it can go astray if the message is misunder- stood, senior Melissa Matthews said. "One night I was on a date, and as we came out of a movie I happened to yawn," she recalled. "Unfortunately my date thought I was bored, and he took me home early." -- By Karen Salmon Body language!25 MONDAY - "My favorite day of the week is Monday," senior Gina Fortenberry said.

Teresa Sliger said she loves Fridays because she can relax without the worry of school the next day or homework that has to be done that "Friday is important because it gives me time baton on Monday because of my lesson in the afternoon," she said. "I try to practice everyday because I need it to help me for my future in twirling. I look forward to Monday." Senior Steve Blevins said he enjoys Mondays because that is when he usually plays basketball at the Boys' Club. Another person jokingly said that he prefers Wednesdays because that is the day he gets to wash his socks. The most popular day of the week, though, seems to be Friday. That was and space to myself to use the way I chose to use it," she said. Sophomore Marty Koonce favors Friday also. "I like Friday because everyone is full of spirit on Fridays for the pep assemblies and games," he said. "Plus, the gang gets together on Friday nights to let loose and break from the regular routine of school." So while favorite days were different, each shared a common trait of specialness. - By Libbi Dixon ME TOO - "I like Mondays because I enjoy playing the guitar at Young Life," senior Steve Blevins said.

For teachers and students alike took part in a variety of efforts to "fight fat" and maintain the elusive "body beautiful." Some jogged, while others tried aerobics for a change of pace. And the more dedicated physical fitness enthusiasts bought memberships to various health clubs that offered assistance in the "battle of the bulge." Among the facilities were swimming pools, saunas, aerobics classes, and Nautilus equipment. Senior Bradd Estes said he used his health club membership to "keep in shapeu during the off-season months when he wasn't playing football. "It was really hard to find something that would keep you in as good a shape as football," he said. "But a health club has everything, and it works." Teachers, students stay in shape in various ways Health clubs were fine, but they carried a price - about S530 a month. Records such as jane Fonda's work-out album, of- 'fered an alternative for more economical- ly inclined physical fitness buffs. For a mere S10-S15 for the accompanying book - there were directions for everything from "and now take a deep breath" to "make it burn." Also, there were dancers, joggers, back- packers, and bike riders who exercised to the beat of their own special interests. Senior Regina Parks preferred jogging. "I like to be outside," she said. "jogging lets me do that. I used to be a member of a health center, but I didn't like being inside' "Being outside makes you feel more open," she added.

If you have, you probably subscribe to the familiar saying, "Two heads are better than one." Studying for a test is one such job, as senior Michelle james explained. "lt's impossible to study alone," she said. "You look at a question, but since the answers are there in front of you, you look at them too." Talking on the phone also is a "two-person" task. Senior Kevin Elders described the difficulties that could arise from a "one-way" conversation.

"Double-duty" tasks are endless. A date for the prom is a drag without two, and a one-man duet scene would leave most audiences hostile. Tennis takes two, even if it's singles, and a partner is helpful for prom tuxedo fittings or memorizing Shakespeare. junior Robert Miller's assessment of a Friday night date is a fitting conclusion.

Senior Susie Prueter's contrast of math classes for "then and now" is typical of the change. "Math in past generations taught students to count," she said. "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 may be directly related to its fuel economyfl "Without math," Susie contin- ued, udesigners would have to build several complete planes to deter- mine the best model. But the mathematical equation can solve the problem on paper, and the designers can then build the one plane they need. lt eliminates trial and error and saves money." A variety of careers ranging from engineering to plumbing require a background in math. Mrs. Gretchen Watson, math teacher, said that many businesses claim that math achievement is a good preclicf tor of business success. - By Susan Slater JOURNALISM SPEAKER - Senior Karen Salmon and instructor Gail Hopkins ask last minute questions to Mr. Roy Reid.

English teacher Miss Mala Ayers said that English classes reflect this change, and they always have because the course "comes of age" in every decade. "Our language continually changes," she said. "In the next several years the computer's in- fluence will be noted as our culture continues its plunge into the computer age." Writing is communication, and the ability to communicate is directly related to success in any occupation, senior Barry Martin, a creative writing student, said. Courses such as English, journalism, and "Paper Wings" offered instruc- tion to develop the skill. "Paper Wings" concentrated on creativity, and senior Lisa Engster explained the need. "In this computer age human feelings are sometimes forgotten," she said. "But when we can express ourselves creatively we are more interesting to other people, and we get a chance to see that computers won't ever take over or dominatefi journalism courses meant more writing, and senior Karen Nelson, editor of "The Star" newspaper, said that the ability to write demands ucuriosityf, "A good journalist must be constantly questioning the events surrounding him,'I she said. "In developing this skill I have become a much better writer and am more poised in talking to a wide variety of people." Senior Denise Clay, "Charger" yearbook co-editor, agreed that 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 journalism class where a pleasant atmosphere must be maintained." - By Cheryl Sloan COMPUTER CI-IATTER - Senior jim Boyle reviews his computer read out.

"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 read now, the lesson can be communicated. change over the centuries," she said.

But the same phrase in Spanish - "te quiero" - means, "I love you, I like you, or I want your body." There's an obvious change in the translation, and it illustrates the pitfalls of poor communication. For this reason, French teacher Miss lean Anderson explained, the study of foreign language is as important as ever. "If we wish to exchange meaningful ideas with people from other countries and cultures, we need to know their language," she said. Mrs. jan Scholl, Spanish teacher, agreed and pointed out that most Americans can't speak a foreign language. This hurts the country's ability to compete in the world of business, she explained. "Americans don't speak for- eign languages well enough to persuade foreigners to buy our products," she said. "There are 10,000 japanese here who speak English, in contrast, we have 900 Americans who speak japanese in japan." A total of 157 students were enrolled in French, German, and Spanish classes, and several studied Latin in an after-school program. Their reasons for electing the courses varied, but senior Vicki Causey's comment was typical. "It's neat to be able to speak a foreign language," she said. "I was curious about it.

After that comes a lifetime that must be spent "beyond the block." To get the most out of post high school years requires answers to questions such as, "who am I?" or "where am I going?" Several classes were offered to provide answers to these questions. Humanities, taught by Mrs. jan Scholl, was one such class. "Humanities is a search for values and a study of many things," Mrs. Scholl said. "It has to do with making a person more human." The class doesn't give any answers. It simply arouses an intellectual curiosity and stimulates thinking. "By the time a person finishes a course of this type he should have a better idea of what he hopes and expects to accomplish during col- lege and in life," she added. Senior Maysaa Farhat, a humanities student, said the class helps students feel good about themselves. "In this class you learn that there's nothing that is perfect," she said. "Each person has his own special talents and values." "Some of the great people in history were considered great because they were weird," she continued. "Van Gogh is a good example." "We recognize him for the contributions he made in art, but people in his society didn't like or appreciate him." Maysaa predicted that such lessons would be helpful in life. "lt helps to know that I don't have to try to be like somebody else," she said. "I can be myself and feel good about it. And who knows?

American history teacher Mrs. Rena Knight explained that know- ledge of the past plays a big part in the preparation. "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 contributions made by those var- ious cultures without a background in history," Mrs. Knight added. "We live in an economically and poli- tically interdependent world, and people in the United States need to recognize and appreciate the value of all cultures." Social studies teacher Mrs. Louise Camrnack stressed participa- tion in her American government classes. Her students attended inaugural ceremonies for Governor Bill Clinton, and she attempted to allow each student to spend a day as a page while the state legislature was in session. Science courses, too, prepared students for life "beyond the block." While many were branded "college prep," those who weren't planning science careers benefited also. Junior Travon Hardin, chem- istry student, said that science is a part of everyday life, and that chemical reaction takes place in a chore as simple as cooking a pot of beans.

Construction I and II classes were equally future-oriented, and students took them for "on the job training." Senior Brent Tucker, who plans to go into construction as a profession, called the classes excep- tional. "If you want to get into construction, this is the class," he said. "I work part-time for a roofing company, and the things, I've learned in class have been a big help on the job.', Senior Tim Seiter agreed. "The course is harder than I expected," he said, "but it is realisticf, Other future oriented classes were 12 business courses, Mechan- ical Drawing I and II, electronics, health, physical education, and five work-study programs. While exper- ience was their main attraction, reasons for taking them varied from person to person. Sophomore Mike Steadman took electronics because his brother told him it was a "fun class." Students took home economics because you get to eat in class, and Sophomore Michele Brooks took health because "it's required." Bur along with the fun came a year full of lessons for life. "I've learned things in health that I can use all of my life," Michele said. Michele admitted that while the knowledge didn't always change her habits, it did encourage her to try harder.

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- around people." "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.

One came in Oc- tober when CCECA coordinator, Mr. Harold Stark, arranged for his students and members of the other vocational clubs - COE, VICA, DECA, FI-IA, and FBLA - to appear on ABC television's "Good Morning America" during National Vocational Week, February 6-12. Channel seven filmed the big scene in front of the auditorium. The Charger mascot was also included, and junior Phyllis Austin, who had a "speaking part," recalled the experience as "a lot of fun." "I just had one line," she said. "I said, 'I-Ii. I'm Phyllis Austin, and we're from Northeast High School' It wasn't long, but it was more complicated than you think. I had to have a lot of coachingf' The spot even required a wardrobe, for while it was filmed in October, it had to look like February. "We had to wear winter clothes, and it was sorta hot," Phyllis recalled. "When I was getting ready at home I thought, 'gosh do I have to wear this to school?'." But it wasn't too bad, and the efforts were definitely worth it she said. "Being on national television was fun," she said. "I'd never done that before." - By Rex DeI.oney.

"One thing we studied about was the rights of minors," he said, "and we learned that there are things we can and can't do." A lawyer spoke to the class regarding the rights of minors, and Ted said he learned a lot from the question and answer session that took place after the speech. "One person asked about our rights if we are driving and the police pull us over," he said. "The answer was that the police can do just about anything they want if they have even a slight reason to believe that we have broken the law." Another speaker represented the juvenile court system, and Teddy said that the presentation was interesting. "I thought that juveniles went to the same court that adults go to," he said, "but they don't. They go to juvenile court, and that's better because they are more interested in straightening you out than in punishing you." A favorite activity of the business law classes is their annual day spent in Municipal Court. Teddy said that in his opinion, the visit represented a strong legal system. "I found out that the court system is much stiffer than I had thought," he said. "I thought everybody got off, but I found out that this isn't true. Most people who break the law don't get off, they have to pay the price." - By Chris Glass WI-IAT'S COOKIN7 - Sophomores Tina Small, Karen Burlienson, and Cheryl Pate and juniors Pauline Rogers and Susan Carter sample a meal they prepared in their Home Ec II class.

Sophomore Mona Hattison called the class a favorite of her day. "It's nice to break into the regular day with a class that you can play games in," she said. Not only the games, but the company was a big factor in making physical education fun, Mona added. "You are having fun, and at the same time you are learning to work as a team." Exercise was a benefit too, and Mona said that after less than a semester she could accomplish things she couldn't do before taking physical education. Sophomore Derrick Dickerson agreed. "It keeps you in good good physical condition, and it can keep you in shape for life." Mona admitted that having a physical education class in the middle of the day wasn't always the most convenient schedule. "Sometimes when I come to school in nice clothes, I hate to get out of them and into shorts for physical education class," she said. "But I do because I need the grade. And I'm usually glad I did. Doing things I enjoy with people I like makes me feel better about my day." And what about all of the exercise? Mona's answer was simple.

Senior Angie Cook, stagecraft student and technical director for "Encore," said that "getting the audience into the action" means re-creating everything. "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.

"When we do a concert or a marching show, it's for the audience," she said. "We are there because we want to entertain and please. That is our major goalf' Kellie added that pleasing an audience begins well ahead of the performance. "We try to pick music that the audience will like," she said. "We also try to pick a wide variety of music so that all age groups will be entertained." Pleasing an audience required "change" and "a lot of work," Kellie said, especially during marching season. "When we do a marching show we try to do things that are different, and that means giving the audience something new every week," she said. I-Iowever, Kellie said, the work required to please an audience is rewarding for the band members. "We do work hard," she said, "yet we enjoy working because it's fun, and we love to get compliments from others." The band's talent and dedica' tion didn't go unnoticed. Forty- eight members made All-Region band, and the group was invited to play for a national convention for band directors in Hot Springs. The accomplishments were rewarding, Kellie said, but audience reaction was equally important. "Their compliments are sim- ple," she said. "just a smile or a few nice words.

Senior drama student Wendy Ward, who appeared in Northeast productions beginning with her sophomore days, is a prime example. "My brother Ueff Ward is a Northeast graduate now studying drama at Southern Methodist Universityj and I have been putting on skits and making up commer- cials since before I could walk," she said. "I had always heard good things about the drama department so I decided to try it, and I'm really glad. Nothing but good things have come of it." For Wendy, who plans to pursue acting in college at Memphis State, pleasing an audience isn't confined to a stage.

Vfendy is especially supportive of the dance instruction added to Drama II. While drama students enjoy an obvious benefit, according to Wendy, the entire student body has a stake in the outcome.

For then the outcome is more crucial because a judge may be in the position to "make or breakn a future career. However, students in the band, choir, and drama departments were accustomed to performing before judges through a variety of competi- tive events ranging from All'State tryouts to speech tournaments. Senior Gina Fortenberry, who was band majorette for two years, said that judges can be helpful to a performer. "You always want to do good for any audiencefl she said, "but when you know that you are being judged it makes performing a lot more nervous. The best thing l know to do is just relax and do your best.'l Gina added that the judges' decisions represent only their opinions. "They can help you by the advice they give," she said. "But they all have different opinions about what you may need to improve on." But a judge's opinion is important, Gina said, because "since they don't know you they'll tell you the truthf' Gina credited the band for helping prepare members for com- petition.

Student Council's work, which was predominantly school oriented, ranged from sponsoring a know- ledge clinic at the North Little Rock Boys' Club, to landscaping the school campus, to forming a Spirit Advisory Committee. President Pam White called the latter an "important achievement." "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- tions." 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 doing." 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.

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.

"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 kicking coach. 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 mental preparation. The team gets mentally ready to play by praying or meditating before the game. This helps build motivation and team unity, McDaniel said - By Anne Jacob ti DU .XA 'Z fl '.

"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. - By Cheryl Sloan 92X Sports, basketball JUMP UP - junior Jeremiah Leggs and Bobby Thomas jump up to tip the ball to their team during the blue and gold game.

"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 the credit." Team captain Ellis Bell said that team unity isn't acquired easily. "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.

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 well." 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 WI-lERE'S MY CADDIE? - junior Bart Land and sophomore Tory Cruse get their gear together for a game of golf in the rain.

"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 finish. I 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 added. "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 Tl-lEY'RE OFF - Seniors Becky Hensley and Tona Burns run around the gym to keep in shape Tracksters used the m - EY when the weather was too bad.

"When each of us is playing a match we are thinking about the individual win, but the goal is for everyone to win. Everyone on the team pulls for each other to win." Boys' team member Mark Seabaugh agreed. "You want to win your own match, but you think about everybody else winning their matches so the team can win," he said. Ellen Linton coached both teams and encouraged A W ' jf' is practice. For jacob, practice and success are synonymous. "It doesn't take very long to get the basic strokes downf' she said, "but if you want to be really good you have to practice a lot." While tennis is anything but easy, the players are dedicated and extremely loyal. Anne attributed the commitment to the excitement of the game. "Tennis is a fast sport," she said. "lt may seem boring to people who just watch it, but playing tennis is so exciting.

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, November 19." "The changes didn't happen by HOW SWEET - Sophomore David King, top right, buys a carnation from Senior Shawn Wilcher.

"They 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- ing," he said. "There's just one way to say it.

There were senior portraits, caps and gowns, gradua- tion invitations, and college entrance exams. 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- ey." 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 moneyf, 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 HZ!

Girls buck the basketball system Amazons 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- livan. "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 WHICH WAY DO I GO? - Senior Cindy Lundhagen battles an oponent as she brings the ball downcourt.

IZZX Classes 5553 . Tests have good and bad points Semester tests 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 tests. 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 READER'S, WRITIN', AND SEMESTER TESTS - Students in Drama class perform a Reader's Theater as part of their final examination.

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 cold on tests when I go to college." Principal james Smith said that the response to the semester exams was favorable. "In addition to the students response on the survey, a number of parents have called to express their pleasure that we're giving them,', he said. - By Patty Pitts ...J g .

MJ Rappelling challenges adventurers Start at "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 rock climbing. "The best thing about climbing is that you never have to climb the same rock twice, there will the top 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, sometimes terrifying. Greg added that most rock climbers hate the move more than any other. "I think it's because itis the only move where the climber relies totally on equipment, and not on his own knowledge and ability," he said. 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." - By Christy Hicks 1Z6!

The dents who wore them took e and satisfaction at being e to express themselves and 'original' clothes different their moods through their clothes. Senior Barbara Powell was one such student. "I like to wear clothes that express the way I feel that day, or the way I feel that week. My moods affect my clothes," she said. Senior Brian Clements gave another point of view. "I like to think that I don't look like everybody else in the school," he said. It took courage and a unique self-confidence to wear what felt right in high school. However, there were those who were up to the challenge. - By Christy Hicks NEW WAVE LENGTH - Senior Brian Clements wears his "new wave" outfit in class, as an example of his "daring to be different."

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- son. "Most newspapers, regardless of their size, are working toward the same goal," she said. "I thought it would be beneficial for students to see that the work of profession- the scene' instruction trips 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 proper procedures." 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," Shannon said. 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. junior Robin Smith described field trips as an important part of high school. "lt lets you know what goes on behind the scenes," she said, "and it also breaks the monotony of coming to class." - By Rex DeLoney FINGER PAINTING - Senior Moss Stallings lends a finger to an officer for finger prints.

The library was the place for last minute cramming for test and homework. Photo by Robert Miller Stuck on campus for lunch? . . . That's every student's pet-peeve!! . . . And what is done with all that extra time? Looking around a closed- campus at lunchtime can some- times be pretty interesting. UNO, a new color-coded card game, found its fame in the hands of students who skipped the cafeteria's mystery meals for a period of strategy and concentra- tion. ln the lunchroom, the long lines and crowd of students became a trademark. And, of course, every now and then, a Big Mac container, a Burger King bag, or an Arby's sandwich would make its appearance on the scene. Yes, students took their chances by sneaking off campus, but, some of them played it smart and had a faithful friend provide door-to-door deliveries. But among the munching and crunching of a 40-minute lunch period, students found time to hit the grindstone, and get back to their studies. Senior Tim McDaniel said, "During my lunch period l have time to do my homework, and to study for any tests I may have." Lunchtime is enjoyed in other ways. It gives time to rest, talk to friends, and time to prepare for the rest of the day. "I like to think of my favorite things and just fade off in to dreamland when I'm on my lui break," said sophomore jim Bromley. "Because of those minutes of sleep, my day is mi better." Closed-campus - maybe not as bad as students say. A all, there is time for friei studies and rest. But do you th students would give up on w they really want? Of course not! Even thoi there were not picket lines massive revolts, students whispered about their dream open-campus. But miracles did happen. If ing semester tests students gai their "utopia", open-campus.

Year is crammed with news Headl One glance at the headlines of '82 and '83 revealed a year of newsmakers. It was the year in which royal baby Prince William was born, the Worlds Fair at Knoxville, Tenn. presented technological wonders, and thousands of Extra- Strength Tylenol bottles were recalled after the discovery of cyanide-laced capsules. Actress 'lane Fonda whipped America into shape with her exercise book, record, and video- tape. Barney Clark received the first artificial heart, and Bear Bryant died in February after ineS being the uwinningest coach in history." On the local scene, Arkansas cheered Bill Clinton back into the Governors Mansion and watched the Mary Lee Qrsini murder trial. Moviegoers cried with "E.T." and laughed with "Tootsie" The entertainment world marked the loss of such talents as Grace Kelly, Henry Fonda, Ingrid Bergman, and Karen Carpenter. Still, the year delivered every promise it made and emerged a fantastic one. - By Christy Hicks. XXX ENN 'SXXX RN 1401 Classes 'tvs ' Q K 1 Rf' tv K ,xy .X .Q kits N' 1. .

Escape after school followed a pattern, try to be the first out of class, dash to the locker, grab the necessary books, and head for the parking lot. Senior Lisa Engster had a different strategy. "I like to wait out the crowd. Usually, it clears out by 3:40, and then I can just drive out without having to wait in line," she explained. Whatever their plans happened to be, most students managed to devise them with a combination It proved to be a repeated scene, and for most the H3130 rushn was anything but calm. According to senior Beth Brady, before the rush was the result of the student with the most imagin- practice. ation left the lot first. "You try to cut down on your time by already having your books so you don't have to go by your locker," she said. "You also try to park in a space that's easy to get out of." of thought, imagination, and creativity. According to Beth, getting out "After a while, leaving school is routine," she said.

"When I was little" he ex- plained, "I wasn't big enough for basketball or football so my parents put me in soccer." Another reason for soccer's growth in popularity is that the game is inexpensive. A whole soccer team's equipment expense is about the same as what one football player pays for his equipment, Greg said. The Force ended their fall season with five wins, two losses, and a tie. Their spring season began in early March. The weeks between were filled with practice. Senior Tom Kieklak predicted as early as january that the team would do well in competition. "I feel that we have a very good chance of getting first or second place in the State Cup," he said. 4 By Anne jacob 'Fw TEAMWORK - junior Greg Schick and Senior Tom Kieklak help each other practice guarding an opponent.

To make matters worse, your logic, "Why clean it now, the day is nearly over," wouldn't work on Mom. 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- storm. 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 go faster." 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 then because I sure don't want to stay homef' she said. - By Michelle james juniors, On the home frontfl49 Tanya Mays IAA' Leann McCulIogh Sheri McDonald T ,2::-,V M Misli Mclntosh Donna Mathis "A' M' .

The fight for an off-campus prom was a typical example. Senior Cabinet President Tiger Taylor lead the push for a "Hilton LAST LOOK - If building plans are completed, the wooded area across Jacksonville Boulevard from Northeast will be gone next year when construction begins on an apartment complex. Some Lakewood residents opposed the construc- tion.

Student Coun- cil revived the Charger mascot to raise spirit for athletic events. Mascots Jeff Seabaugh, Pat Rogers, and Stephanie Blair, who took turns as the Charger, agreed that it really helped raise spirit and also was a lot of fun. Seniors Tom Kieklak and Susie Prueter represented Ar- kansas at Boys' and Girls' Nation in Washington, D.C., giving Northeast the distinction of being the only school in the country to send two delegates. Neal Estes resigned as head football coach. Semester tests were administered in all subjects. Sex education units in health classes were revised to meet parental approval, and the list goes on.

Stickers were sold by'FBI.A. Photo by Melissa Matthews Charger pride is two-fold beneiit Charger pride Charger pride is hard to define, for its meaning varies from fan to fan. For some, such as junior Mark Seabaugh, it is synonymous with spirit. "Charger pride means having a lot of spirit for the school," he said, "and buying a bumper sticker l wanted." Junior Margaret Bakerls defini- tion included a personal reward. "Charger pride is being a part of the Chargers and proud ofthe part you are," she said. "lt's better to be proud of the school because it makes coming less grueling." Football coach john Talley's definition of Charger pride reached far beyond the athletic department. "Charger pride is each student taking an interest in all parts of the school, whether it's drama, football, or track," he said. "And pride includes going to these events and cheering for the Chargers." Coach Talley added that pride is as beneficial to the individual as it is to the school. "Having Charger pride helps a student build pride within him- self," he said. "Everyone must have something that he can hold on to." Senior Tiger Taylor described Charger pride as an extension of the pride he takes in all his involvements. "l'm proud of the school and its activities because l go here," he said. "l want to do things for the school and make everything the best it can be." - Story by Robin Smith. Layout by Karen Lacewell k M- .ts -,.. .1,WQg,,a .... ff., ,H 3 ei ffi lflf A Kirk D.

There, for a S3 cover charge, teenagers could dance to the likes of Sylviais "Your Nobody Called Today," Billy Squire's "Everybody Wants You," and Michael lack- son's "Beat It." Manager Al Cook explained in an article for the "Arkansas Gazette" that the disc jockey plays an amalgam of three styles of music - country-western, rock, and disco. He relies on dancer participation to determine selec- tions. Another advantage, at least for the girls, was that they can ask the guys to dance without being criticized.

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 on display. 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 them. 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." - By Christy I-Iicks .. ,,,, My 158!

"You do what you want to do with it." Senior Tim McDaniel, a member of the Mules team, agreed. "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."

"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, said. "Running up and down the court keeps you in shape," he said.

For money raising projects, pushing items from French suckers to original oil paintings, qualified the scene as a full-fledged shopping mall. Student Council's sale of its 50 front-lot parking spaces got the season underway. For a mere 10 bucks and a few hours in line, a student could rent his own Charger space for a nine-month term. Later came milk and doughnut breakfasts for less than 50 cents, thanks to future homemakers, And, for the amazing price of a nickle, students could purchase their very own spirit links and help Mu Alpha Theta keep the power place." T-shirts, an ever-popular item, were a sell-out for hundreds of customers wanting to advertise their part in a drama production, sport their position on the senior class roll, or declare their affection with an "I love Northeast" number from Spanish Club.

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." Men were also put down with "Women like the simple things in CONCERT CLAN - Sophomores Margaret Barsocchi, jennifer Wallace, and Dana Runsick display T-shirts from various rock concerts.

A check of local inventory revealed a limited supply of men's retorts. But the one available sample managed to do the job efficiently. It suggested, "In the beginning God created man. Then he rested. Then he created women, and ever since, nobody's rested." junior Steve Speers offered another explanation for the lack of men's T-shirt attacks on women. "We don't need T-shirts," he said.

The E.T. phenomenon didn't stop with the movie. There were E.T. posters, video games, dolls and T-shirts to keep the little alien earthbound. Some claimed he was "child's play" and represented no more than the latest fad. But others found a lasting and deeper meaning in the E.T. craze. Senior Trisa Adkins said that the affection for E.T. demon- strates that maybe there is a little bit of "child" left in all of us. "E.T. may be for kids," she said, "but that doesn't keep me from liking hirn. I even got an E.T. doll for Christmas." junior Holly lnmon was also optimistic about the longevity of E.T.'S popularity. "I think he'll last a long time," she said. "He is more realistic than like your you can't most fads, and he is friend. He's cute, and keep from liking him. He grows on you.'l Regardless of his importance or his chances of symbolic lasting stardom, E.T. was definite- ly a part of the '83 scene. And if the little wrinkled creature hadn't gone home in the movie, he could have been "at home" at North- east. - By Michelle james POSTER CHILD - Sophomore Nikki Hardin adds an "extra" touch to her room with an E.T.

For then, he knows, there'II be no more walk dates and no more car pools. It'II just be, "Move over, world, make room for my wheels." But first there's the test to pass, and, according to sophomore Michael Herrera, that isn't always easy. "I thought it would be easy, but it wasn't,,' he said. "I took it three times before I made 95 out of 100, and that's the lowest you can make and pass." That was the written part. The driving part posed problems too, Michael recalled. "The cop was nice," he said. "He just said, 'drive around the blockf It wasn't as hard as I expected, but I was scared. Luckily, about the worst thing I did was run a stop sign, and he let that pass." Michael said he celebrated on his sixteenth birthday by taking a girl on his first real car date. I-Ie plans to have his own car in time for his junior year, and the parking lot perils of broken glass, parking hogs, and the 3:30 traffic jam don't worry him a bit. "I'm willing to risk it," he said. "I know it won't be easy paying for gas and insurance, but I won't have to depend on anyone else to take me where I need to be. I may be wrong, but I think it'll be worth it. I can't wait." - By Karen Lacewell Sophomores, Sophomore driving!173 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. According to Sandi Walls, manager of the Golden Nugget THE CHASE IS ON - Senior Melissa Matthews matches her wit and her quarters in the never ending struggle to "beat the machine" at a local arcade. Photo by Vicki Causey Arcade, the games, which have been around about three years now, are as popular as ever. The reason is hard to pinpoint. junior Todd Holloway credited the games for developing coordination and judgment, while senior Lynclli Patterson enjoyed the social aspect. "They are relaxing and fun and they give you a chance to be with your friends," she said. - By Marla Hardwick .

That is the feeling of Mr. James Smith, who has been principal of Northeast since 1971. "I enjoy it here or I wouldn't be here," he said. "I enjoy coming to work everyday." Even though the work is enjoyable, the pressures are great, Mr. Smith said. "lt's like any other adminis- trator job," he explained. "Pressure is always there." As principal, Mr. Smith was responsible for the welfare of 1,060 students each day. He explained that a problem for one is a problem for all. "There is a closeness with the student body," he said. "lf one student has a problem with drugs, alcohol, etc., then we all have a problem." Mr. Smith said that North- l's crew east's problems were mainly confined to routine problems. However, he said that atten- dance was a major concern. "We have too many students' abilities wasted because they don't attend classes," he said. Mr. Smith was assisted by Mr. Andrew Beavers, assistant principal, Ms. Charlotte Moore, administrative assistant, and Mrs. Margueritte Franks and Mrs. Alice Williamson, secretar- ies. He credited much of the year's success to their work as well as the work of the teachers. "We are fortunate to have a school like Northeast with a dedicated staff and a coopera- tive student body," he said. "With this in our favor we should continue to be one of the best schools in the state." - By Karen Lacewell s -Q 21- i N Lotsa. ,WW ,M M M 3 K gf Uhttnif nl' S K 0 .

"For instance, at Northeast we have had more classes in foreign languages because of an increased interest over the past four or five years." Vocational classes are on the upswing at Ole Main, and, according to Lyon, Northeast students wishing to take vocation- al classes are provided transporta- tion to Ole Main.

"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," he said. 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 said. 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 is happening in education."

Men in charge District faces tough decisions By Susan Slater 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 and practicality. 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 position. "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 in a stand he took in October jim Dyer, assistant superintendent for instruction, spends much of his time keeping up with the latest facts in education. - Photo by Mark Donnell. against a group of parents who wanted the district to provide free transportation for their children. "I think that commercial tran- sportation should be provided," he said, "but the school district can't. We don't have the money." 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 district's efforts to have the court order lifted were turned down for the second time in October. Mr. Miller explained that the district's reasons for wanting the court order lifted related to conven- ience. Mr. Miller said that budget limitations are the deciding factors in many decisions. He described the district as "solvent" "We can't deficit spend in a public school situation," he said. "The law says you can't spend more money than you take in. You have to arrange the budget that way. So what we said we would do, we are going to be able to do. But we donit have anything to spare." P 18O!Classes, administrators Q 5 X "' 5 .Q ' 45 xx , . .

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 school districts. 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." - By Denise R. Clay GROUP EFFORT - Calculus teacher, Debbie Dillon, takes a few minutes of class time to explain a tough problem in more detail. One of PET's main goals is for students to understand their work.

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 of War Memorial Stadium dressed in red and whitef' a fan offered.

According to them, Fun does not necessarily have to be "good and cleanf, for Merritt and Tanner consider it a good time whenever they are mudding. To those without the faintest idea of what mudding could possibly be, it is a ride through the mud in a jeep, Bronco, Scout, motorcycle, or three-wheeler with plenty of mud in sight. According to Tanner the conditions for mudding are ideal in the spring because it is not too hot or cold. Also, spring is usually a season with ste rain. In mudding, practice does always make perfect, added Tanner "lt really just depends on what happen to be driving, but Bronco's Scouts are easier," she said.

According to senior Brett Dingler, who flies a Cessna 152 757 KD the Countryhobby is great, but learning to do it can be expensive. "To get an instructor for one hour it cost S12 dollars," he said. "To rent a plane it costs 525 an hour, so the total cost of a plane and instructor comes to about 537 for an hour of flying." Pilots have to fly with supervision lVlHCl1ll'l9 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 thinks a six-year-old kid is good enough to fly by himself then heill give the kid his solo license." The money and preparation were well worth the effort and time, Brett said. "I get high over Arkansas," he said. "It's great. That's all I can say. I love it." - By Cheryl Sloan 1.

Any word spoken, in class, or in the lunchroom, or on the campus, that deviates from the views of another person, may start an argument or cause a disturbance. But our Constitu- tion says we must take this risk." - Abe Fortes, U. S. Supreme Court Justice And they're off! 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 ahead." 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." - By Marla Hardwick i Charger Country The ADvantage!219 l The ACQHVODIGQG JAMES I 8620 SYLVAN HILLS HIGHWAY f SHERWOOD, AR 7Zl lb PHONE 15011 815-5745 -N.. . f MARTI and associates, Ihmd Label Printing Company 3021 LINCOLN PHONE 5011945-1349 PRINTED PRESSURE-SENSITIVE LABELS AND TAPES V X QIIAPERS Q- E A ' HWS m E DIE-CUY Board of Directors .

Photo by Angie Cook Smiles warm up days Smiles 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.

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- graphers. "You get ulcers," Beth Brady, first year photographer, said. "The pressure is constantf' Head photographers Mark Donnell and Greg Powell agreed.

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 frustration. "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." 246!lndex MUSCLES - Photographer Beth Brady helps the Student Council landscape the campus.
