Opening PLACE Never at a loss for fun, kids still found school the place to be as they screamed in excitement or just made noise at games hen it really came right down to it, on Friday nights, no matter how teenagers changed, or stayed the same, there was still only one place to be-the stands. All the ex- citement came from the bleachers, so intense everyone could feel it. Students joined in on cheers and clapped when the band played i'The Bronze and Bluef, Even parents and faculty came to the games to cheer the team to victory. Those who Weren,t so interested in the game itself came out to cheer on the team. Many seniors who had never gone to any games before Went to the last football or basketball game just because it was their last time. Even those students who weren,t actually in the game were just as involved in the action and the excitement as the players Were. Students cheered wildly when We Won and almost as wildly if we lost, because it hurt and it didn,t matter all at the same time. One more thing made the Homecoming pep assembly special. Western Day,s boots and jeans added to exhuberant Pioneer spirit as students whooped and stomped to urge the team to victory over Ponca City. xx' 5 K X f S ' f a an we S A 3 vw Q -Qs X .I1X - N" sf .. . ik ?N x s t1i S ' , LLAL ,,., . 3' JY 'Ss 'if .

N r a still moment between football and basketball games, wrestling matches, dances, club activities, extracurricular activities, jobs and Friday and Saturday nights, students were constantly on the go. Christmas was especially busy for that "special someonef' Even in the halls there Wasn,t any time for a still moment. If students werenit rushing to class, they were gabbing about the latest party. Week- ends were a time to catch up on sleep, some students even slept until noon. Others, how- ever, had to get up early and go to work. The prom was a busy time for some, and graduation was even more busy. Students, lives were never dull because something was always going on. One perfect gyft for her bogU'riencl might he a sweater.

Summer antics Students enjoy three hot months of fun in the sun Slaving in the hot summer sun. Many students worked demanding jobs in the summer. Some scraped and painted houses, while others worked as sackers for local grocery stores. Still others raised money for school activities. And many students went on vacations. Some stayed for the lakes in Oklahoma and a few lucky ones traveled all over the U.S. and the world. Beaches were popular for those sun worshippers. For those who didnlt spend their summer in paradise, newspaper and yearbook workshops in Dallas were a place to go. Songs from soundtracks were high flyers last summer. "Danger Zone" from "Top Gunn was a most popular song. Bon Jovi made a big comeback I, Ir , E ! 3 S last summer with "You Cive Love a Bad Namef, If money was no problem, concerts provided a change of pace. A wide variety of artists visited Oklahoma, Iulian Lennon, Van Halen and ZZ Top were just a few. Movies drew big crowds. "Top Gun" grossed S150,727,739 by October and grossed S171 million during 1986. "Back to School" came in third and grossed 887,606,400 "Stand by Men was another popular movie.

Mike Lauvetz said, "It seemed all the seniors knew the answersf, The grill lunch gave students a chance to become acquainted. Take-a-Sopho- more-to-Lunch-Day gave the new underclassmen a chance to make new friends and eat somewhere other than the cafeteria. The week ended in a big sheebang with the Hawaiian Sock Hop. The abeachy lookn was definitely the in thing at this dance as students dressed in jams, muu-muus, grass skirts and leis to enjoy dancing outside in the sand. The dance was held outside complete with sand, a bamboo fort and a rowboat, creating a luau effect. Stillwateris own jumpin, Little Juke joint, Eskimo joeis, provided the music and lights.

That's right, in fact there was a whole team of enigmas in the intramural basketball circuit. Strange and unexplainable things followed this team around all season. Sunnie Thompson scored a basket for the opposing team. "It was after half-time and we had just switched baskets," Enigma player Ieanne Wallace said. "Sunnie got the ball, forgot that we had changed baskets and went in for the lay-up." The Enigmas also had a Homecoming King, Ward Thomp- son, who was selected from a court that included jeff Smalley and Duane Cornforth. Ward was crowned king partly because he was the only one in the homecoming court who showed up at the homecoming game.

Warm weather Spring prompts shorts, tans Around March students who 'began getting spring fever tried to rush the warm weather. They wore shorts before it was really warm enough and then froze when they found it was not as hot as they thought it was, or they laid out with only a wind block, otherwise the body became covered with goose bumps. However, this spring, the weather ranged from 98 degrees one day to 68 on another day and 40 for the next day. Some students even found wearing shorts in February was comfortable because of the warm days. Spring break was always looked forward to toward the end of the semester. Many students left Stillwater to enjoy vacationing in the mountains or sunning at the beach. Others, however, got their tans in backyards. But spring wasn't all fun and games, it was a busy time for some. As the year began to wind down, graduation and the prom oc- cupied many people's thoughts.

Police sirens werent always bad news Nothing could make a student more scared than to hear the familiar sound of a police siren coming. But that siren didn't always mean a traffic ticket. As part of the Teen Safe Driv- ing program, Stillwater police cited more than lO students for good driv- ing skills. As a reward students received a "Commendation citation" signed by the governor's representat- ive, Ralph W. Graves, and Stillwater Chief of Police Mike Strope. "We wan- ted to provide the community with the knowledge that teenagers are good drivers," Cpt. John Irons said. The program began Sept. I5 and ended Oct. l5, during this time the high school area was patrolled before and after school and at noon. Those students who received citations were placed in a box at the high school and drawings were held each Friday dur- ing the program. '1 verything in life hast a price, even sports.

It may come into use again by teachers if further budget cuts are made, limiting the materials available. Since last year there was a 75 per- cent cut in instructional funds. Gov. Henry Bellmon planned to increase the basic amount per student to cover the ucorei' subjects such as English and math. But school districts had to come up with other money for elect- ive courses, such as music. Class sets of texts were used in English classes instead of one per student. Even though Oklahoma suffered severe budget cuts, Superintendent Bill Hodges said that Stillwater was better OHS because of advanced plan- ning by the administration. "We tried to stay as far away from the classrooms as possiblef' Hodges said. The biggest challenge was to try to keep up teachers, motivation without enough resources to build with, and to adjust from last year's cuts.

Passing the AP test gave a student three to six hours of college credit which was accepted by universities. Another way to help with college was by having good grades. Those students who maintained a 3.5 grade point average or above and qualified as a Varsity Scholar for two years were honored at a banquet held in April. Students were given a medal and a certificate of m e rit fo r th e i r achievement. Other students qualified as Na- tional Merit Semihnalists.

It was one favorite place to be. And the stands were still the one place to be during the last football and basketball games. The prom provided one last time for seniors to attend a dance as high school students, and for juniors, it was the last dance of the year before becoming seniors. For senior girls the prom meant many Saturdays at local department stores or in the city trying to find that "one special dress, D for the last formal. p Dec. 19 was the last school day of 1986, as Christmas Break began. And for all students the end of May marked a time of rejoicing. Summer was finally here, students were able to relax. For sophmores the end of May marked the last time they would walk to lunch, as turning 16 meant getting driver,s licenses. For many teachers spring semester tests meant a summer of no papers to grade. The last one place to be for seniors though, was graduation. Relief filled their minds. How- ever, the thought of growing up and leaving home scared many students. For most, however, graduation had been looked for- ward to throughout high school. Spirit filled sophomores took part in after- noon pep assemblies as they learned to feel like a real part of the student body.
