Perhaps his ability to depict what many young people think and feel is what brought Peter Frampton to the top in '76. His hit song, "Baby, I Love Your Way," represents an age old idea people readily identify-with. It is in High School that 'dating' and interest in the opposite sex reach their newest and most consuming level. But, as with Frampton's song, all this goes a little deeper. High School serves the primary purpose of educating people within the areas of English, Science, History, etc. However, we are also developing a permanent foundation of social and self consciousness. We are gaining increasing independence and responsibilities, therefore we are more willing to reach out to experience. People are a very large part of this experience and it is faced with an eagerness and interest that creates the "High School" years as being so special. The most lasting memories of School are the people, the friends we will always remembers. Your favorite places and occurances are most likely highlighted by the music that was being played then. Much is revealed by our music, for it reflects our general concerns and emotions. For 76-77 the emphasis was on social awareness. Just as we preserve our memories, let us preserve a fresh outlook through-out our entire lives. Introduction 5

"There's A New Kid In Town . . ".... A new president, a new century, record low temperatures, and ,many new faces marked the school year of 1976-77. The election of Southern Demo- crat Jimmy Carter ended a long dark period in government. With his "grass roots" style, Carter won the American people with the desire and the hope that he was a man they could trust. Starting from the day he was inaugurated, Carter began to reinforce that desire with little gestures, such as enrolling his daughter, Amy, in a predominately black public school, walking a mile to the Wh-ite House after the inaugural ceremonies, and having a national calling day for anyone wishing to speak with the President. It is true these are of little importance compared to a President's higher duties, but because of them the American people have a growing faith in our President. Gary Gilmore, a little-known man, convicted of murder, rose to international fame with the request and demand that the State of Utah fulfill the sentence of death placed on him for the senseless murder of two innocent men. Going through numerous legal branches and manipulating the media, Gilmore became a subject reported on daily. Gilmore's "death wish" was granted but not before he almost became a hero in the public's eyes. It is frightening to think of how many people revered a man who murdered two innocent people in a jealous rage. Perhaps the Gilmore incident will not only force us to examine our penal system, but also our own personal values. The winter of 1977 will be long remembered as a cold one as below freezing temperatures plagued the midwest and eastern states. Miami Beach, Florida, saw its first snowfall since anyone could remember, while schools and factories closed down across most of the eastern half of the country. While Ottumwa did not suffer any severe crisis due to the weather, school was closed a few days 6 Introduction 'wi nfs President Jimmy Carter took office on January 20, 1977. QAP Photoj due to the snow, ice, and temperature. In 1977, the Academy Awards for Motion Pictures voted "ROCKY" as the best picture of the year. An unknown, Sylvester Stallone, took his best shot at writing, directing, and starring in his own motion picture. No one ever thought it could be done, but Sylvester Stallone and "ROCKY" grew in popularity and soon became household words. The movie was one of the longest playing and biggest money-making ventures for the Ottumwa Theatres. Locally, in 1977, ground- breaking ceremonies took place immediately next to the present high school building for a new Vocational- Technical Building. The S3 million dollar building will provide education for music students, Drivers Educa- tion, and all Vo-Tech classes. Building completion was projected for 1978.
