He took "strategy, distance, and the changing momentum," into consid- eration on a penalty play.

Before play-off games, he would tell us, 'This could be our last game together, so let's do it right'," explained Brett. "The coaches kept us from thinking we were too good, and getting cocky," said Craig. Winning State gave the team quite a lift and brought them even closer together. "lt's a goal we've always had. l feel like we've accomplished something and we'll be remembered," stated Craig. For many players the season would still have been a success without the State title. "Playing with all those guys was great, Not everybody was friends off the field, but on the field, everybody was," commented Robbie. lt really is amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit.

After fifteen straight weeks of getting up to yell before first period, students' Fridays finally got back to normal, The first pep rally for Port Neches began right in style, hardly anyone sus- pecting this would become a weekly habit until Christmas. "I thought it was great, no, fantastic, because everyone came to it," stated Senior Carey Wolow- iec. Sandy Smith, freshman, added, "lt was fun, but I really didn't know what to expect for my first pep rally." Costumes for pep rallies were as var- ied as the people wearing them. The movie "Animal House" inspired one of the favorite costumes, the toga, better known as the all-American sheet. Another successful costume was dress- ing up as Steve Martin. The saying, "l'm a wild and crazy guy," appeared on many Halloween-dressed backs. "Squeeze mel" appeared on Craig james' back as he posed as a tube of toothpaste. Decorating the gym added to the fun, and sometimes hassles of the pep ral- lies. Senior Girls usually performed this task, but a few times underclassmen were assigned the honor, junior Girls president Angela Scarborough remarked, "After a while we all kind of got on each other's nerves, but we still had a real good time. It was good expea rience for next year." junior Girl Wendy Hoge added, "Decorating the gym was just as much fun as the pep rally the H592 . lQ"' 's next morning." Besides decorating, skits emphasizir the opposing teams' weaknesses wei presented. The jolly Green Giant ar Little Green Sprouts were parts of a Sei ior Girls skit, and the Senior Boys pe formed a jazz dance and wearing socl as gloves to imitate the Spartanaire Senior Boy Mike Million stated, ' thought the routine was great conside ing we only planned it out that mori ing.'

Guests for the pep rallies include Mayor jim McConn and Congressma Bill Archer, Presenting a plaque reco nizing the football team for its exce lence, the mayor said how happy l was to have three winning footbz teams from Houston: The Houston O ers, the Houston Cougars, and the Stra ford Spartans.

With over 14,000 excited fans showing up for the Stratford vs. Plano game, more than half of the Astrodome was filled for the state finals. Masses of green and gold pom poms and giant hands waving "number 1" occupied the Spartan side of the Dome. ln fact, on the freeway coming to and from the state games, it was apparent that even in a city as big as Houston, Stratford could create a traffic jam. druh Back on Fern Street, the masses caused their own traffic jams. When lunchtime rolled around, the snack bar and cafeteria lines were long. Sophomore Barbara Bauman remedied the situation, commenting, "l just bring my lunch every day so I don't waste twenty minutes just trying to get my food." Another way around the long lines was "just getting someone in the front of the line to buy something," according to Freshman Natalie Teft. Taking advantage of off-cam- pus lunches, Seniors and many underclassmen found that get- ting away from school lunch lines didn't solve any of their traffic problems, L.. 14 crowds Imagine the time is 12:26, anc 525 seniors, not to mention oth- ers are trying to get out of the two parking lots. All are hoping for enough time to not only orde their meal at the place of thei choice, but also to have time tc actually eat it and be back a school by1:08. Senior julie Miller describec the happenings of a regular day at lunchtime by saying, "Every- one tore out of the parking lof like maniacs. What l really hated though, was when the people pulled into the left hand lane anc blocked the entrance intc school. Then, even though yot were in the lane you were sup posed to be in, they went aheac S On one of the less crowded occasions freshman Danny Hamilton ascends the center staircase to the third floor Danny does not like the center stair case, "because it takes so long to get ut them," but he uses them anyway so hm can see his friends. "Itfs the only time get to see some of them," said Danny. After another day of school, Stratforr students make their way to the parking lots which are usually full. junio Dianne King complained, "You have tc arrive before 7:45 so you can get. decent parking place." She also stated "Lining up to get out is even worsel' The situation is also bad during B-luncl because of the large number of senior who exercise their privilege of open campus lunch. d pulled out right in front of u. Another way to avoid the time unch was solved by Robert Jlt who recommended, "lust an to meet your friends at a ecific place and really get out ere fast. There won't be any ng lines to sit in and waste time th" During school, students con- egated in their favorite spots. Jnquering the third floor mid- e stairs for example was a feat itself, as one dodged conversa- mns and couples. junior Wade Reese said, "l've been looking over these stairs ever since my freshman year and it's right near my locker." Of course, all grades gathered near their respective lockers as they waited for friends or just wanted to socialize. Finding a parking space was another problem in the course of a regular school day. lt was apparent when 7:50 a.m. rolled around. Screeching cars, brave walkers and bike riders filled the vast parking lots. Late arrivals were stuck with parking in the if QQ rear of one of the parking lots. "lf you're running late, the time which you're being late by is nearly doubled by the fact that you have to walk so far just to get to the school. This can be a prob- lem especially when it rains. Because so many people drive to school, it gives you an incentive to get to school earlier just to avoid the crowds," said Linda Crimsby,junior. Living in Houston, crowds were everywhere, and at Strat- ford, everyone was a part of the crowd. Listening intently to separate conversa- tions, Sophomore Simms Duncan enjoys his ice cream sandwich as Senior Bob Rielly drinkshis iced tea. Both with- stood the long lunchlines before their meal. These lines were usually shorter during B-lunch, though, because many seniors left campus to support fast food businesses or eat at home. Leading the crowd out the door next to the gym, junior Kathy Sparks and Senior Elaine Divita leave for home after a day at school. Tired smiles and a hurried pace were characteristic of "the mad rush" home. Preceding the final game, the State Championship against the Plano Wild- cats in the Astrodome, a crowd of coaches, teachers, and alumni gathered to welcome the team. The crowd then formed a path from the locker room to the run-through sign on the field to show their support for the team. crowds 15 No one can say the eight cheer- leaders weren't experienced after planning and performing at the fif- teen straight once-a-week pep ral- lies and football games. However, they did lack one quality - they didn't know a cheer for a losing football team. Voted on by the students, the Exhibiting his own special stunt, Senior Charles Lloyd explained, "Cheerleading wasn't my life's ambition, but last year's cheerleader Kelly Bittner pointed out to me that it could be fun."

Here they learned new cheers, chants, and pyramids and competed against other squads according to co-head cheerleader Connie Fritz. She added that they were awarded four superior ribbons, and one excellent ribbon, and more impor- tantly, they received a spirit stick, "a pretty big deal at camp, it's one of the best awards given." "lt was really great," added Connie's part- ner and co-head cheerleader, Charles Lloyd, "the guys were so outnumbered. There were like 40 girls to one guy." The next major project they had was planning the first pep rally. "We were lucky because we didn't have a game the first week that school star-ted. We used this time to really plan the pep rally, explained Tracey. "With fifteen pep rallies, the main problem the cheerleaders encoun- tered," stated Mrs. Virginia Hill, the cheerleader sponsor, "was getting the students and the school more spirited. lt seemed like everyone expected to win, and they got apathetic. During the playoffs, we had people from other schools call- ing and begging to come to our pep rallies." Only one unfavorable situation occurred during the entire season, and it was because of natural causes. There was a downpour at the Westchester game, Nov. 17. "lt was awful," exclaimed Tracey, "It was freezing cold and raining. The wind was blowing so hard and we were soaked to the skin, There was even water in our shoes." She added, "We had to put the micro- phone in the ice chest to keep it dry." With the five playoffs held in the Astrodome, the cheerleaders were, after a while, as familiar with it as they were with Tully. "The first time Before practice for would-be cheerlead- ers, Senior Tracey Wheatley tries on Senior Scott Witt's sun glasses for snow skiing. Tracey commented, "l was pre- tending I was a snow skier, too. On the side of the frames it even said, 'I can ski Clapping to the chant, cheerleaders cott Witt, Connie Pratt, Martin Bailey, nd Drew Kronenberger get the crowd enthused at the Alief-Hastings pep rally. "It really made us feel good to have the crowd join in with us," stated Connie. l we walked in, it was so quiet and ,big. But the next time, it seemed just natural for us to be there," said Con- nie Fritz. , When football season ended, the cheerleaders were already involved lin cheering for the basketball games. "The games were usually lheld in the Coliseum two nights a Week," stated Connie Pratt. "The crowd was usually pretty spirited, like a lot of the football players lwould stand on the front row and Well," she added. l Scott pointed out that it was hard ,to cheer for these games because l"they were so fast paced. While we 'were cheering for the offense, the ball could have easily changed hands." With all this complicated activity, it seemed like there wouldn't be much time to have any fun, but Connie Fritz stated, "We worked but we had fun every minute." Summing up the year, Tracey con- cluded, "The whole time I had fun. Football season was kind of long, but l'm really glad it ended the way it did. I just wish we could do it all overagainf' Balancing on Seniors Tracey Wheatley and Connie Fritz's shoulders, Senior Cyrene Bouchard describes it as being "real shaky." Selected to be on top because she was least scared, Cyrene explained, "lf I fell, I would usually land on my feet." 5 .: if R .

I8 spirit groups , I hind the School spirit for a winning season included wrapping houses, painting posters, decorating the gym, staying up late, and having just plain fun. Spirit organizations from every grade level invaded the pep rallies to promote school spirit. Senior Girls Club met once a week to plan the upcoming week's crazy antics. Each pep rally meant dressing crazy and presenting their designated varsity football player with a spirit gift. "I had a lot of fun making spirit boxes and wrapping houses," said Senior Girl Carrie Cox. Senior Girls' Club member Kristal Buckles added, "l've always wanted to participate in pep rallies as a Sen- ior Girl, and I wanted to help with the football pIayer's enthusiasm and the general spirit of the school." Contributing to Spartan Spirit Senior Boys' Club entered the pep rallies as a group and were often dressed in anything but ordinary garb. "We were the Senior Boys' Club and were supposed to be dif- ferent," stated Barron Hobbs. The Senior Boys' helped with gym deco- rating and often produced skits at pep rallies. They performed a Wran- glerette routine at the Westchester pep rally that required Spartanaire- like high kicks and a memorize dance routine. Senior Boy Tom Hoffman sai "We did some rowdy things at tl pep rallies. "One of the crazy things we d was to invade Westchester wi' green painted tires.

According to Senior Varsity football layer Greg McFarland, the football ayers met in the locker room about 00 to think about the game. "We were lpposed to be quiet and stay off our et," said Greg. Then they packed and ft about an hour before the kick-off. nce at the field the team did exercises lstretch out and loosen up and "every-- Pdy started to get up for the game." iThe band usually arrived at school W2 lurs before the game to run through ie halftime show and sometimes to ive a uniform inspection. After arriv- g at the stadium, the band played a w warm-up scales and sometimes ayed for the small audience who rived early to get the best seats. The Spartanaires usually spent about hour at home, putting on their field ake-up, fixing their wigs, and putting i their uniforms. An hour or more 'fore game time, they arrived at school practice. "We needed that practice to ally get it, and to get our nerves lmed down," explained Senior Cindy Simmons. Then they packed their pom poms, blankets, gloves, capes and hats and left in time to march in behind the band. The cheerleaders met at the field about an W1 early to put up posters and set up their equipment, according to Senior Cyrene Bouchard. About forty five minutes before the game began, stretching out and practicing double stunts could be observed. Out-of-town and Astrodome games meant that the whole process had to be started much earlier. The cheerleaders went to the school first to load the equipment for an away game and then went to the stadium. For the dome games, "We got there really early, about 3:30 or 4:00, because there was so much more space to put up pos- ters," said Cyrene. Not only was there preparation for football games, but the other sports had their ways of preparing for their specific meets and tournaments. lunior Gabrielle Giovaninni said that preparing for a track meet took both mental and physical preparation. "You had to get lots of rest and eat a lot of carbohydrates. Also, you had to think through the race and think positive and that you can win." Mrs. Becky Ryder, girls track coach, commented, "The team always gets a pep talk and gets their positions before they go into the meet." Senior Stanley Bould commented, "ln tennis, l try not to think about the tour- nament because l get too nervous. It's best to really stretch out and stay in shape to play your very best." Even parents of students had their own activities that centered around school events. Mrs. Vickers, Craig lames' mother commented, "We usually had dinner at the Touch Center for the school kids and football players. They were usually too tired mentally and physically after the game, so they would come to the Center to eat and relax." Mrs. Adams, Kevin Adams' mother, said, "About ten mothers decided on a menu for the Tully games at the Touch Center. At about 5:00 Friday, we would set it up and then go to the school and 'ooh and ah' for the football players." Only after the tired football players showered, the Spartanaires pulled out the coldcrearn, the band members hung up their wool uniforms and the specta- tors battled through the traffic did the celebrations begin. The celebrations were usually in the form of parties, however, they differed from group to group. The Stratford Party Team, a non- school sponsored group, hosted parties almost every weekend during football season including a Toga Party after the Spring Woods game. "Everyone was supposed to wear togas, but l didn't think they would. But they did! When we were cleaning up, we found togas all over." exclaimed Lori Robertson, senior. At the same time band parties were going on. These were different from regular parties because "Regular,parties have regular people. But band parties have band people." explained Senior lay Thompson. Another memorable party was held at Leslie Abramson's house. Besides cele- brating her birthday, its purpose was "to celebrate winning the state title and the birthdays of Andy Paffet and Cindy Manicomf' said Leslie. Alter partying was over, people went their separate ways, only to meet back again the very next week to practice and party. parties and practices 23 Varying from their usual style, the Spar- tanaires wore side ponytails with flow- ers in their hair and can-can skirts. Drum Major Kelly Smith and Captains Kim Hightower and Dana Weber, all seniors, smile in the pregame victory line. "Sometimes fans in the crowd just sat there, then the Spartanaires would start cheering and everyone would get more spirited. I really appreciate what they did for the football team and the school!" Var- sity football player Mark Cabrisch, senior, commented about the efforts of the drill team that accom- panied the Spartans to the state championship. Lieutenant Laura Gattis, junior, said, "The goal we strove for this year was to bethe number one drill team to complement the best foot- ball team in the state." The Spartanaires certainly worked as diligently as the football team, beginning their practices the last week of lune and attending a clinic at SMU in luly. There they won first place in pom pom and second in Dancing with her father at the Sparta- naire formal, Senior Maria Lawson exclaimed, "l didn't quite know what to expect.

Sophomore Angel Bruzzese com- mented, "The SMU summer trip was a lot of fun, but l was nervous. The officers and everybody were really helpful and a special tie developed between me and my big sister." Mrs. Shauna Baker, director of the Spartanaires, said, "Sometimes tl new girls dor1't understand our go of perfection. We emphasize disc pline and association with others." From mid-August until la December, the football season dor inated the lives of the squad. Afte school practices started at 3:30 ar lasted until about 5:30 or 6:00 wht "they got it right and it looke ood," according to Mrs. Baker.

Some girls did tra service projects to receive erits that replaced demerits for 'diness, misconduct, and perform- lce mistakes. Even after the football season ded, Spartanaires kept very busy. is year's winter trip was to San itonio to perform in the Fiesta rade.

All of the girls received "State in '78" letters for this year, but Captain Dana Weber said, "l'll remember how everyone brought Teddy bears to the games after Kelley Smith's Teddy was so lucky at the Port Neches game." Mrs. Baker summed the Sparta- naire year saying, "We strove for unity, respect for others and pride in the prevailing attitude of success."

There were skits, various joke awards, such as awards for saying the wrong thing as in Lisa Carpen- ter's case, or taking a band final seri- ously as in Sherry Teft's case. Tradi- tional freshman orientation could not be overlooked, and so all the newcomers had to push a peanut across the floor - with their nose. Right before the dinner of roast beef, potatoes and green beans, a special visitor came from Eastern Onion and gave Mr, Fitch a message for doing absolutely nothing.

Realtors, gas stations, and other pri- vate businesses wished the team luck with marquees such as "Reign over Plano." Senior Glenn Swisher persuaded three different advertising agencies to ,IA donate the billboard, painter, and paper for the Katy Freeway sign estimated to cost as much as 53000. Cheerleader Connie Pratt said, "My friends from Memorial kept kidding me about the football team's victories, but they were really happy for us." The Westchester cheerleaders and art department presented the school with a token of their sportsmanship: a huge green and gold tissue paper state of Texas with a Stratford pennant and a -'Il in the center.

Record-breaking varsity foot- ill player Craig lames said, "The whole ason was so fantastic! It was great to iow that the whole community was ahind the school and especially the otball team." Varsity football player Robert King lded, "The crowds were great. When ru looked up and saw the upper deck ' the Astrodome packed - some r,0O0 people - you knew it wasn't just :rents from Stratford."

These feelings were boldly expressed in local newspaper articles and a full page ad complete with Varsity team picture and roster sponsored by area businesses and families. The senior class sold Spartan bumper stickers, iackels, and pom-poms, actu- ally. "a last minute idea taken from an Oiler game before the playoffs. They raised a lot of money," said Senior Class President Robert King. l-le continued, "Without the commu- nity involved, fund-raising just can't get off the ground." 'lunior Patty Mclntyre who worked at a T-shirt shop on Memorial Drive added, "We were selling Spartan stuff like crazy, Everyone just knew we were going to win." Local stores, fast food places and stu- dents researching at the Kendall Branch Library were sites of interaction between the community and the stu- dents. With further construction on Dairy- Ashford, a new Victoria Station and Cornelius' Nursery, the area expanded. With the expansion came a State cham- pionship football team that earned the support of the community. : l Westchester presented the football team with the paper state shown and a scroll with over 1000 names of West- chester students. Pictures in the display were taken by Stratford's yearbook pho- tographers. Keeping watch over the Katy Freeway at Wildcrest Drive, a noble Spartan wel- comes visitors.

Students were surprised by the visit of celebrities to the pep rally arranged by Cheerleader Scott Witt, senior, and the mayor. community 33 "l'll always remember this year because of the State Champion- ship," Senior Robin Hazel com- mented. But several other national and international events also affected Stratford's students and the community. Pep rallies were dominated by themes taken from popular entertainment successes like the movie Animal House's toga party, comedian Steve Martin's "wild and crazy guy", and television's Saturday Night Live's coneheads. Ballooning to France occupied a few enthusiasts, but another kind of atmospheric visitor enter- tained audiences-Mork. For entertainment outside of school Mork and Mindy became a favorite weekly series and the movie, Superman, was released to public theaters and sell-out 1979 - year crowds. Houstonians also had the chance to go the Dome and wave their pompoms for the Oil- ers as they approached the NFL playoffs. Despite the Oilers loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, fans greeted the late returning team with a giant pep rally in the Dome. It was Houston's "thank you" for getting to the playoffs. But life had a much darker side than just losing in football. ln November, 1978, the mass sui- cide of more than 900 People's Temple members in lonestown, Guyana shocked the world. lim jones' followers, men, women and children, drank koolaide laced with cyanide after a sur- prise attack on a congressman's investigative team.

Back in Texas, the first Republi- can governor of the century, Bill Clements, was elected with promises of cutting the state budget. Besides having a Republican governor, senators made the 1979 session of the legislature eventful by staying away from chambers in order to prevent the passage of a bill to allow primary elections in Texas. These 12 senators, dub- bed "Killer Bees" prevented the mandatory voting quorum, virtu- ally crippling the Senate until their return. In other Texas con- gressional action, the legal drink- ing age was raised to 19 as of September, 1979. Although 1979 will be remem- bered by students as a State Championship Year in football and tennis, no one could over- look the year as being one of national peace, tragedy, near tragedy and diplomacy. current events 35 Cool and thick, a frosty offers a nice relief from the hot Houston weather for Senior Cassie Curelop as she is fed by lunior Ruth Eddens. Many outings included afstop at one of the many local franchises which serve hamburgers, chicken, pizza, fish, or sandwiches. The last thing any student would want after a long day of school is more to do, right? Not quite. Students may have left their four-six hours of school with homework but most preferred the diversion that a trip in the car or a walk to the local job could bring. lust looking for "something to do" kept students busy. Sophomore Danny Stewart remarked, "Mainly, I just listen to my stereo and goof off. But a lot of times on weekends there's Key Club work to do." Meanwhile Robbie Spo'ttswood, also a sophomore, spent his time around rodeos, bull riding or just riding his horse. Robbie says if he watches TV, he watches Gunsmoke and Bonanza. Spending money was a popular pastime as students bought ten-dollar concert tickets, six-dollar albums tdepending on which record storel, and five-dollar T-shirts at the concerts. "Rod Stewart was 511.50 for the worst seats in the Summit," said junior Mau- reen Kuzik. "When you're there fat a con- certl, they CT-shirtsl seem so neat. Usually people wear them to school the next day so everyone knows they went to the concert," continued Senior Leah Hippie. Senior loyce johnson added that she liked to go to clubs like Lovejoy's in Woodlake Square or to Chelsea's which is "real radical. You bang mugs or tables and the loudest table gets a free pitcher. The guy to girl ratio is about five to one, too." lobs also occupied time, but according to Senior Bryan Boudreaux, the sacrifice of free time paid off, as he "saved for a truck and gained experience." Bryan, who works at The Printery, plans to open a printing shop after college. The medical profession attracted students. Senior Betsy Bonvillain would "wait on cus- tomers and hold animals for the doctor to treat" at the Animal Medical Center. She helped "run tests and assist in surgery," she said. "Actually, l ran the whole clinic." Perhaps money provided the best incen- tive for taking a job, although those under 16 found most jobs unavailable for insurance reasons. The floating manager between two local Panjo's commented, however, "I'd rather have a motivated 13 year old who can be a better worker than a 17 year old who just loafs around." Yet, some students under 16 have found jobs. Sophomores Chris Grant and Steve Strellor worked hooking cars to rented U- Haul trailors. Chris remarked, "We usually worked only two to four hours out of a ten- hour day. We spent the other time playing football, listening to the stereo and drinking beer." Steve Strellor added, "From meeting 'weird people' at work, I learned to commu' nicate with people." In the mood for music, Sophomore Simms Du ncun checks out the selection of albums at his favorite local record store. 36 work and play Boxing hamburgers, Senior Kerry Her- rington works as an assistant manager at the nearby McDonalds. Fast food joints were common places of employment for students, especially fora first job. Yet money was not always a requirement for keeping occupied. Sophomore Denise Edwards said she sings in "church choir because I can't sing, and l love to sing. That's the only choir that would take me!" She added that she rides her bike around and checks out houses, she wants to be an archi- IGCI. Friday or Saturday nights, the carefree stu- dents congregated at local hangouts such as lack-in-the-Box or Kroger's parking lot. On weekends, people gathered on Satur- days and Sundays at Bear Creek or Memorial Park. "We'd get a group together. lt's tBear Creekl really nice. On Sunday's everyone's cruising by andthey stop and talk," said Sen- ior Antonio Helm. Whatever the reason, students spent their free time doing everything from bull riding to just sitting in front of the TV watching reruns. The diversions filled the hours after school and on weekends. Brooms and chains occupy Sophomores Chris Grant and Steve Streller at the U- Haul rental on Kirkwood. Although the work was not tough, they gained experi- ence in working with the public. Testing out the controls, Senior Lisa Duncan considers buying a stereo on sale. Although a popular item among students, the cost of various stereos var- ied from S100 to S1000 depending on the quality and components. Other musical distractions included albums, concerts, and instruments. work and play 37 Q Cars-- whee s of Eortun - 'X 'vs F Q 3 Tfi. i I' -Q ' ,av . . :gf Wx..

But the ideal seldom happened. Staffers usually found themselves waiting and wait- ing and waiting. But for every time a photographer didn't show up or didn't get the right kind of picture, there were hundreds of times when they made the yearbook staff members happy.

Each photographer had individual responsibilities. jeff, for instance, took all group shots which Groups Editor Tiffany Doucette, junior, set up. "People were always running into the room saying 'where's the photographer? He's supposed to be taking our group shots," said Publi- cations Adviser Peggy Schneider. In one six week period jeff took, devel- oped and printed 60 group shots. "Naomi Bullock must have broken some kind of record. She set up, photographed and developed 30 honor award pictures in a little over 4 days," continued Ms. Schneider. Naomi's photographic awards included first in advertising photog- raphy in the state lnterscholastic League's competition, first in ad photography in the Texas High School Press Association and sec- ond in yearbook portrait photogra- phy in Texas. She was the first per- son in Stratford's history to have a photographic portfolio advanced to national competition. But staffers identified her most with a quiet "do I have to?" when approaching her for photos. One year-long dilemma turned out to be tennis pictures. Sports Edi- tor Betsy Bonvillain assigned "at least eight" tennis matches to be taken. "I assigned tennis pictures in january when the season opened and May 30 I finally had to go out and shoot it myself," said Betsy. Cyrene was responsible for drai ing up the tennis layout.

Related to answering questions of society and morals, these three offered the study of mind, culture and morals. Covering religious history and comparative religions, Bible was taught in three separate, nonpre-requisite quarters. Senior Cindy Manicom, who took all three quarters, explained, "I just began to get more interested in religion This attitude was typical according to Mrs. Pat Mauldin, who said, "Most of the students are very interested and ask challenging questions in class discussions. A lot of those questions do not really have an answer." The course contained a unit on the Old Testament, the New Testament and an overview of the six major world religions. Mrs. Mauldin's purpose was, "To sort of have them walk through Biblical history and basic religions and know what effect they had on the future." She concluded, "Of course the and the Bible, SO l Cledded I0 take the Christianity of most students does affect class.

Senior Mark Watson stated, "It's not as bad as I thought it would be. I didn't want to take physics and so Geology seemed to be the next best thing." For a time, it seemed that many science students would be left without a teacher when "one quit to play tennis and another quit to make money," said Department Head Tommie Steverson. Finally, things settled down, and Mr. David McCall joined the faculty as I I i Physical Science teacher. Trauma struck the science department, however, when at mid- year, a complete inventory had to be taken. Everything down to the last rubber stopper had to be counted, resulting in weeks of work and Excedrin headaches. Taking Biology I, junior Holly Hise was surprised to find that Biology was "interesting and I especially liked the labs because they were better than just learning the subject from a teacher just lecturing." Darlene Wessels, sophomore, said, "Mrs. Bormaster is really good at making the class interesting and it's not that bad." Contrary to popular belief, the science classes did have some lighter moments. In the middle of one of Mrs. Barbara Rose's Biology I lectures a pair of rabbits in a cage in the front of the room began to mate. In Chemistry I, Miss Kathy Vance scheduled a day to relate her famed story of her childhood cow, Daisy, and its attachment to the family pig.

The most basic course, typing, attracted more students than any of the others. Here students learned the workings of a typewriter, forms for business letters, and skills that enabled them to type papers for class assignments and perhaps even qualify them for Dislributive Education. Numbers occupied others in the accounting courses. The class learned bookkeeping, a marketable skill not ordinarily available to a high school student. Mrs. Ruhe concluded, "There will always be a need for secretarial work, and if someone wants a second career to fall back on, you can always type." gl .

While most students suffered through their fifth and sixth period classes, a small number of students were out working through two school programs. Vocational Office Education tV.O.E.j and Distributive Education tD.E.j offered students the chance to attend classes in the morning and work in the afternoon. Thru V.O.E., taught by Mrs. Barbara johnson, students obtained jobs in banks, real estate agencies, and other offices. "Mrs, johnson set up the interviews with companies and the students then choose one of the jobs offered to them," explained junior Sallee Aven. Through their jobs, students learned many things. Senior Kristi Griffis commented, "I learned how to use a CRT computer." Working for George Moody Inc., a real estate construction if . company, Sallee Aven said, "I learned my way around Houston because I ran errands for the company." Meanwhile, D.E., taught by Mrs. Mary Ann Cole, helped students find jobs that were not office oriented. Senior Robin Avery said, "D.E. taught us how the free enterprise system worked." Robin worked at a department store, handling the phone and paging. Senior Maria Elam was employed at the same store as a stocker and a salesgirl. V.O.E. and D.E. taught students skills that would be useful in the future. Senior Charlotte Hinkley explained, "I'm going into business and be the manager of a store. Through D.E. l've learned how a department store is run." Denise Langford, senior, added, "I worked for a law firm and this should help me when I go to law school."

Mrs. Ryder found that, radicalism aside, "logging was the most popular activity this year. Most students realized how good the exercise was for them and stopped complaining." She continued, "We had a map of the greater Houston area and each girl moved a pin closer to her chosen destination, like Galveston, as she logged that many miles. lt was a great way to visualize distances." Some of the same p.e. teachers entered the classroom when they taught health. Coaches William Garrison, George Saenz, Guy Stafford, and Richard Taylor taught these courses covering "things you really should learn ifyou don't already know them," according to junior Don King. Coach G'arrison explained that, "lt's an important course, but a lot of things were covered quickly and generally this year, like in the films."

Homemaking I, mainly made up of freshmen and sophomores, consisted of cooking, sewing, and home fur- nishings. Mr. Irwin said, "There aren't any classes that we don't have boys."

Described usually as a break in the day, music classes deviated from the usual classroom routine. The classes included four levels of band, four levels of choir, one orchestra class and one music theory class. Mr. Griff Miller directed the Orchestra and Training Band and taught the music theory class. Thirty-seven strings and 24 wind and percussion players from the Symphonic Band joined together to form the Orchestra. "The world's greatest music was written for orchestra. It's a study of a musical art that you can hear anywhere in the world," commented Mr. Miller. The group's hard work paid off in al lrating of Superiorj in Concert Contest and all lrating of Excellentj in Sight Reading Contest. Sophomore jean Breaux explained, "Around contest time you start striving. You start feeling more unified. Like in rehearsals you're always stopping to practice certain phrases, but on stage you can hear you've produced something great." Wearing handmade arters, Seniors T Gwinn and Susan Paufare two members quartet singing Cabaret. The two first formed the act in the talent show and revised it for the choir production.

"We're working all the time for a program," commented Senior leff Flinn. "I enjoyed the class because it was more relaxed than most classes, and I knew all the people in it because we've been in the same class for four years." With only eight people in the class, Music Theory was one of the smallest and most individualized classes. Students studied chord progression, moderation, cadences, and part writing. The best part according to Senior Lynn Tuttle, "was no tests." With no break after the long marching season, the band began preparing for U.l.L. Concert and Sight Reading Contest. The Concert Band, whose contest was held here, received a I ta rating of Superiorj in Concert Contest and a I in Sight Reading Contest. The Symphonic Band received a I in Concert Contest and all in Sight Reading Contest.

At least, not according to the drama, speech or debate departments. Although the only athletic aspect to these classes was the leap from the- floor to the stage, both victory and defeat were present as participants progressed to state levels in forensics. ln debate, Senior lay Brooks was ranked in the top eight Texas high school debaters. About her students, Debate Coach ludy Goodwin noted that, "Many of the debaters didn't have time to take a class in debate so debate ended up as an extra curricular activity." These students, composing 10 debate teams, won 9Odebate rounds during the year. "Really a chair and a whip were the only teaching tools I needed." Ms. Goodwin jokingly added. Probably the most visible first floor inhabitants were drama students. Beginning with Drama l, students became familiar with acting techniques, set building, basic make- up and set design. These "babies" of the drama department, as they are fondly referred to, sometimes chose to move on to Drama ll. "Drama is the only class I ever really liked going to this whole year. It was fun and I loved working on the shows," commented Senior jackie Russell. She continued, "I feel really lucky to have worked with a director like Mrs. Boone, who has such a good reputation throughout the state as an excellent director." In the second year drama course, students continued acting, supplemented with basic directing, full make-up, stage movement and mime. At the top of the heap sat Drama III and IV. Classtime was spent almost exclusively on production work, with the assumption that the basics no longer needed reinforcement.

"They made test tube babies with magic markers on my desk,'f she explained. Ms. Goodwin also took on four speech classes. Here the students learned group decision-making and parliamentary procedure. They concentrated on oral speaking in poetry, prose, extemporaneous speaking and dramatic and humorous interpretations. Whether out front on stage, T behind the scenes or researching in the library, the drama, debate and speech students practiced their trade.

Stressing "a general appreciation for the work an artist puts into his creation," Mrs. Sally Sparks, art department chairperson, offered courses in both arts and crafts. Progressing from Art I through Art IV students learned the elements and principles of design, drawing, painting, sculpture and printing.

Students took art classes primarily because they were interested in developing their skills, but reasons did vary.

Ron Standifer, freshman, and classmate Sophomore Rocky Hoyt said that they liked the class because they enjoyed drawing. Rocky added, "Mrs Sparks never screams at you. She's cool." Freshman Erica Rippy said that she took art because she likes to draw and she is glad she has seen an improvement in her work. "The teachers are great," she added.

"I really wanted to do well this year since it was my last year in high school and I wanted to leave with a feeling of accomplishment." Patti, a senior, found it easy to read the books when they were assigned because "I can sit down and read a book just like that." Commenting on how she felt about English, she "never knew how anything she wrote would turn out. Really in English,you can never tell if it's good or bad. You've just got to wait for what the teacher thinks of it!" "l try my best and I believe I do try hard." Mark Mayo won the Freshman English honor award and commented, "Since science and math were subjects that came naturally to me, English pre- sented a special challenge to me. It wasn't my easiest class, so I had to work a lot harder to obtain better grades."

Kirk, a senior, taught himself and "learned more about the system and its 'ropes' every show." He wired the lights to a dinner board in the cafeteria for the dinner theater show The Crucible and also coordinated the lights for Bye Bye Birdie which had over 100 lighting cues.

"I'm very interested in biology, but there are no jobs available in that field unless you want to work for the government or teach."

Most sportswriters were talking about the Spartans being the best high school team ever and having the strongest offense ever. In the state finals game, Plano the defending state champion, was the opponent. Plano was one of those teams who always got lucky. ln an earlier round of the play-offs, they tied Tyler-john Tyler.

Keeping in stride with the rest of the football program the junior varsity continued its ways by wind- ing up the season with a respectable 6-4 record. The junior varsity was coached by Richard Taylor and Guy Stafford. Unlike other years, the junior varsity was made up of all juniors this sea- son. This team was, however, caught between two good teams, which somewhat affected them. "They both deserved the honors they received, but as far as I'm concerned our turn will come next year when we win district," remarked junior john McGuire. For the junior varsity the season was a successful team effort. The team won 5 of its first 6 games and were contenders for the title for most of the year, but dropped three crucial games late in the year. Overall they played fairly consist- ent football, but actually developed more in practice because they had to go up against the varsity in prac- tice. Coach Stafford commented, "This season was a team effort and they were all working together for a common goal. Going up against the varsity helped them become better ballplayersf' The team accomplished a lot this season which will help them become better next year when they become the varsity team.

HI think they stack up pretty close to the varsity," 'I think they stack up pretty close to the varsity! commented Bill Garrison, referring to the varsity's undefeated sopho- more season. Using a combination of team quickness and team effort the soph- omores had little problem winning the district title. During their unde- feated season, the sophomores compiled incredible team statistics. Offensively the sophomores aver- aged 28 points a game, with the closest margin of victory being 8 points, Perhaps the most impressive statistics were compiled on the sophomore football 119 defense. The defense limited the opponents to only 21 points, or an average of two per game. For the first seven games their opponents were held scoreless and at the end of seven games, the sophomores had outscored their opponents 236- 0. One reason for their success offers Garrison was, "Their willing- ness to work and not be second best." The sophomores' first game was against Alvin and they made quick work of this team by rolling to a 33-0 victory. This was the start of their incredible streak. The final two non-district games were against LaPorte and Lamar Consolidated, where the sopho- mores won 34-0 and 25-0. The sophomores district season started with a 49-0 crushing of Alief Elsik. This was the offense's best of the season. They followed with con- secutive shutout victories over Spring Woods, Memorial, and Alief Hastings. Spring Branch became the first team to score upon the talented sophomore defense, but seven Q points was not enough to win as Spring Branch fell victim to the sophomores 20-7. The season was closed out with victories over Northbrook and Westchester, thus capturing a third sophomore title..Coach Gilbreath's impression of the team was, "that they knew what it took to win."

Teamwork the key, as Senior Rosemary Struffolino f2Zj, covered by junior jen- nifer Williford fi3j spikes the ball to Westchester in the district play-off, After a hesitant start in district competition Sept. 7, and medi- ocre play in three tournaments, var- sity volleyball took a crucial turn and finished the season in the district play-offs. "It really surprised me to find us in the play-offs, since we were com- ing into the season with a new coach. I thought we would be stuck somewhere in the middle instead of coming out on top," said Rosemary Struffolino, senior. "There wasn't any one thing that really motivated us to put our minds to winning and achieve the play-off berth," added Senior Rachel Hill. "We just decided that this was it, and we were going to make it." The first two weeks of practice, before the initial scrimmage, were somewhat hampered by the facts that the volleyball program had two new coaches, Mrs. NeVada Brim- berry, varsity, and Mrs. Karen Mar- tin, junior varsity, and the fact that tryouts were held for all three teams, since the previous coaches had not already chosen varsity and junior varsity members. In addition, these delayed tryouts shortened the necessary pre-season period in which the individual teams established an effective line- Waiting for the serve, junior Tatiana Fri- erson U75 keeps her eye on the oppo- nents. up and rotation, which led to deciding factor, teamwork.

We were lucky to win that game. Then, I think we became intimidated by the crowd and the opposing players, and we began to play cautiously instead of with confidence and power, Since we had never been in this situation, it just became overbearing, and Westchester, with the two previous district crowns, became alert and dominated the rest of the match."

According to Coach Lynn Funk, inexperience was a big factor in the team's play, yet they managed to do well in several tournaments and finish fourth in the district tournament. The golf season started at the beginning of the second quarter and ran through the first week in April. I ,. ,GMS The team met at Memorial Park every Tuesday and Thursday, but because they started late in the day, they could only play 9 holes. Using the ladder system, a player chal- lenged the person in front of him, so competition was tough in practice. At the same time, the scores from these challenging rounds were taken and averaged in with the play- ers season total.

Unlike previous years, the team held only two early morning work outs in the water.

Kristy exclaimed, "That was the funniest tree!" Usually Mrs. Palmer has a tra- ditional tree, but the spirit of her students seemed to take over this year. According to Kristy, the spirit this year has brought "everybody together and unified the senior class." Did all this spirit bring dow the seniors academically Accordingto Mrs. Palmer, i didn't.

Perhaps the main reason for going to the beach was to watch the oppo- site sex and to get a tan, but Senior Mark Gabrisch liked "watching all the crazy people." To some, the beach wasn't all fun and games. The worst part to Senior Susan Harper was "the dirty water and sand." "Tar and broken glass," were Senior Charlie Hamilton's dilemnas, and to Senior Kevin Adams, "Having to wash the sand off my car." After the Senior Prom, the beach remained the most popular roman- - tic ending to a perfect night. To Sen- ior Leslie Abramson, it was "build- ing a bonfire and watching the sun come up."

That 60 minutes in class represented only a small portion of the time educa- tors spent on their profession. What they liked and disliked about their jobs was as varied as the teachers them- selves. Mrs. Tommie Steverson, science department chairperson, liked the "interaction with the kids" but didn't enjoy the "amount of work you have to do at home." Mrs. Steverson added, "There's class preparation, typing tests, and grading papers - you're never through. And if you're improving your program, it takes even more time. That's why some of my teachers are resigning. They can't justify the time they have to spend lin preparationl and they can't be any less of a teacher. So they're getting out and that's sad." Drama Coach Carolyn Boone would "get rid of homeroom" if she could, but the high points of teaching for her were "the immediate high at the end of a production." For her, one of the worst things about teaching was the money.
