However, their main pur¬ pose is to attain a better education for the students. Meetings . . . memorandas . . . never enough time to finish a day’s work . . . keeping the halls clear and the kids in class . . . THE EDISON WAY.

Writing and signing passes, typing, computing miles of student lists and cards and pouring over the finance records, prove that these ladies are invaluable tools of the administration, who keep the school functioning. 14 Carlton, Lucille Kritzar, John itSS Schnell, Evelyn Brown, William Castagne, Selma Sanders, Lilly Friend, Joan Everitt, Hazel Mathey, Josephine School Services are an important part of Edison. The library staff tries to help stu¬ dents find necessary information. The school nurse does a healthy business, but one word of advice, don’t get sick during school hours. The clinic is only allowed to despense band-aids, or a rest on a hard bed. The janitorial staff is perhaps the least applauded task force in the school. The planetarium is a great place to visit. A job which few people would volunteer for, yet many have complaints about is the cafeteria staff. Let’s face it, cafeteria food will never equal mom’s or McDonalds but, it’s nice to sit and eat your good-ole bag lunch in a clean atmosphere. SCHOOL SERVICES 15 Cerelli, Christine Chernenko, Walt Gianakaris, George Wright, Mildred Owens, Gail Henderson, Don Yeatts, Ryland GUIDANCE The guidance department encourages stu¬ dents to take relevant courses in pursuit of their future interests. From the student point of view, the guidance counselors try to en¬ roll them in courses which they feel they do not need. . . you are college bound, aren’t you?” PSAT’S, SAT’S, and ACT’S are an¬ other service provided, and guaranteed to give every student Excedrin headache num¬ ber 923, after he had blackened in all the little blocks. Not all guidance offic es are credited with aiding the student with any¬ thing beyond their education, however, for many students, they offer helpful counsel¬ ing service for personal problems or needs. Wagner, Martha Wisniewski, Ronald Tabor, Betty Christopher, Lois FINE ARTS Trying to instill culture into Edi¬ son isn’t easy—but it can be done. A lot of hard work, worry and tal¬ ent go into the Drama and the Jazz and Symphonic band perfor¬ mances. Photography and quality art work are displayed by the Art Department. Losing one’s music, chipping away too much of a sculpture, hitting a flat note or having someone walk in on you while exposing a picture in the darkroom, are just a few of the problems that one has to put up with in pursuing one’s talent. ENGLISH Thematic English is now an in¬ stitution at Edison. Each nine weeks students make three selec¬ tions in order of their preference from the choice sheets. While most of the student body favors the thematic units, all agree they can prove expensive. Especially when you loose your Cliff’s Notes the day before the test. “Remember, you only get out as much as you put in . . .” Occa¬ sionally, students run into teach¬ ers who like to lecture, but the trend now is, motivating the pupil to answer the questions he asks. According to the student, teach¬ ers don’t really have anything to do when employing this method. True? Not True! Long hours are spent in planning these thematic units, as well as preparing tests. Although it takes the student one period to finish a test, it takes the teacher days to grade them. As any English teacher will tell you, reading the same question 150 times is not the most exciting life.

I LANGUAGES An increasing amount of attention is being given to the language depart¬ ment because languages are encour¬ aged in college studies. Also, be¬ cause more and more young people are traveling abroad in their leisure time. The A-L-M program is the ba¬ sic format used in teaching, with emphasis plyced on speaking, gram¬ mar and native customs. Pauli, Alise Sneed, Gladys Fary, Diane Morton, Blaine Harris, Robert Hensley, Carl Hurst, Cheryl Paszak, Robert Neville, Allan Skinner, Sharon PHYS ED The thematic bug has spread to the P.E. department. Guys and girls in gym classes? Why not? Not only does it add more variety to classes, but it gives students a better chance to select a sport that they are interested in. Be¬ sides major sports, weight-training, archery, volleyball, and use of the trampoline are included in the curriculum. P.E. teachers spend a good deal of time, effort and nerves instilling sound, sportsmanlike qualities into minds and hopefully shaping winning teams. Clark, Willis Tourtelotte, Marilyn Kelley, Jack Taylor, John Olson, Eric Richardson, Joyce SOCIAL STUDIES During one’s four years at Edison, a great deal of emphasis is placed on History. Freshmen and Sophomores are grouped in a World History and Geography program. After a trial run last year, thematic units were established for Juniors and Seniors, consisting of political, social and economic history and U. S. govern¬ ment. In most classes, no matter what the concept, Current Events are stressed. Students learn to beg, borrow or steal a newspaper to pass the course. Less use of text books and more use of up-to-date paperback books, movies and filmstrips are incorpo¬ rated in class time. Many teachers form class discussion groups, in¬ stead of having the student work on an individual basis. If this satisfies the teacher as far as results are con¬ cerned, it also makes the students happy because they have time to catch up on the latest gossip and make plans for the weekend. 22 Campbell, Robert Almedia, Evelyn Wild, James Hinkle, Sarah Temple, David Atkinson, Jacquelin MATHEMATICS Education is not just as simple as readin’, writin’, and ’rithmetic anymore. The Math Department is a good example of that. Basic math courses are Algebra and Ge¬ ometry, but some prefer General Math to fulfill their graduation re¬ quirements. Other venturous souls continue into the higher math courses of Trigonometry and Functions. As with other sub¬ jects, there are rules to be learned and followed, except of course, in special cases. Therefore, much of a math teacher’s time is spent at the board, going over frequent homework assignments. A few teachers choose to use the con¬ tract system—letting the pupil work at his own speed. Math stu¬ dents can easily be spotted by slide rules or tattered graph paper protruding from their books. 24 Ezell, Susan Ross, John Redderson, Gail Litvinas, Josephine Seemuller, Don McClurg, Marjorie 25 SCIENCE Ever whiff a strange smell or hear a small explosion? Well if it’s not the cafeteria, it could be from the Science wing. The courses offered by the Science department are all lab oriented and consist of Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The Science Department does it’s bit for population control by disecting unlucky frogs and a monkey. The upper level courses offer something a bit more complicated. Blevins, Charles Adams, Coy Williams, George Hitchcock, Joan mm mm »v y» I BUSINESS This is no longer a field just for girls who plan to become office workers, though steno blocks prepare students for jobs very much in demand. Typing, Short¬ hand, Business Law, Book and Record Keeping and Economics are designed for any student, because business is a major part of today’s society. Common prob¬ lems of these courses include loosing your typing eraser or running out of ink during dictation. ; V.- iJ§ii§ A ' iffrk Mm i Norton, Margaret Jaymes, Marie Loudin, Charles Greene, Doug Gascoigne, Ruth Marion, Carl Verville, Rachel Adams, Helen 27 28 Workman, Glen Shottz, Joseph Balac, Joseph Moores, Elizabeth Lineberry, Dorothea Sommers, Houston Sayer, Ethel Lambert, Norman Powell, Jay Baush, Richard McCurdy, Robert VOCATIONAL For students and teachers who have not yet ventured into this wing, it’s quite a worthwhile trip. Especially if you would like a new hair style, or have your car’s transmission fixed. Big job op¬ portunities are available in the vocational field, with good sala¬ ries and opportunities for ad¬ vancement. Data Processing, Fashion Merchandising, Cos- motology, Bricklaying, Auto Re¬ pair, and Regrigeration draw not only Edison students, but stu¬ dents from area schools to make this one of Edison’s largest departments. Hughes, Charles Woodward, William Beals, Josephine deMalleville, Micheal INDUSTRIAL ARTS Courses available in the Industrial Arts department are: Mechanical Drawing, Creative Crafts and Gen¬ eral Shop. These courses are offered to students who wish to further de¬ velop their talents. Blight, Kathryn Sanders, Doris Scesney, Nancy HOME ECONOMICS Every girl, whether she plans on catching a husband or being an old maid, should learn how to sew, cook, manage a budget, child care, etc. Guys, whether or not they plan to stay a bachelor for one week or 80 years after graduation, should know how to cook and sew on buttons. Here’s where the Home Ec teachers take ac¬ tion, instructing students in fields they will use not only now, but later in life. 30 CUSTODIAL STAFF: Row One: Mrs. Richmond, Mr. Cole, Mrs. Espana; Row Two: Mr. Fowler, Mr. Philip, Mr. Wise.

Hall FRESHMEN A whole new breed of people invaded the school in September—Freshmen. Fast to catch on to the ways of their peers, everyone won¬ dered if they’d ever make it through this year and the next... and the next. But you did and the time goes faster each year. Soon it will be 1976-something to celebrate! Freshmen activi¬ ties included a third place Flomecoming Float, an Ice Skating party, participation in the March of Dimes Walk-a-thon, and a dance in January. 37 Beck, Mark Best, Cynthia Brackens,

SOPHOMORES Though slipping easily into the same school routine as many classes before them have done, the Class of ’75 was not to be unheard. The loudest cheers in the school won them the spirit stick three times during the year. Other class activi¬ ties: a second place Homecoming float, soc hops, and an ice skating party. Soph¬ omores—you’re halfway through!

SENIORS 1973 . . . the last year to get in¬ volved or to not get involved, con¬ structing Pooh, the Homecoming hall and follies, of listening to morn¬ ing announcements, owning a park¬ ing space, “Senior Privileges”, get¬ ting out for lunch five minutes early, leaving at 2:15, the Candle Sale, re¬ taking college boards to better scores, visits to the college room, filling out college applications, being measured for caps and gowns, ordering announcements, skipping a class or a day every now and then unofficially, the official “Senior Skip Day”, parties, the Talent Show, the Prom, and —Graduation. For some it was a very long year, for others it was very short—for most, the hours in class passed slowest to¬ wards the end but Graduation flew by. None of us will forget that 1973 was our year. 71 ABBOU, BERNADETTE ALDRICH, WARREN ALIZIO, JOSEPH ANDERSON, JAMES ANDERSON, ROBERT ALBRIGHT, THOMAS ALEWINE, DEBRA ALLEN, PAMELA ANDERSON, JOHN ANDREWS, SALLY ATKESON, JAYNE ATKINSON, SANDEE ATKINSON, ROBERT 72 AUSTIN, CHRISTOPHER BAKER, KAREN BANKSTON, WELDON BARRY, JOAN BAYES, ISABELLE BEATTIE, VICTORIA BEATTY, ROBERT BECK, JOSEPH BECK, LYNNE BECKMAN, SHELIA BELL, JEANNE BENARICK, SANDRA BENAVITZ, WILLIAM BENNETT, RONALD BENTON, FORREST BEVIS, JOY BIBBLE, LOIS BLAKELY, DOROTHY BLIGHT, ALAN BOAZ, DAVID BOLLINGER, JAMES BOSCH, STEPHEN BRACKENS, CAROL BRA CKENS, DAVID BRENNAN, COLEEN BRENNER, JUDITH BROGAN, PATRICIA BROWN, MARK BROWN, SCOTT BROWN, WAYNE BURKE, IRENE BURNS, STEVE CAMPBELL, LESLIE 74 CARLSON, KEVERNE CARLSON, PHYLLIS CASOLA, STACY CAPLANIS, TRESA CASSADA, LINDA CERAMI, CYNTHIA CLEARY, DAVID CHAMBERLAIN, CATHY COHEE, ALAN CHAMBERLAIN, LORI CHILDRESS, NANCY CHUMLEY, PHILLIP COLE, HOLLY COPE, MARY CONNOLLY, ROBERT CONNER, PATRICIA 75 CORNELL, LINDA COTTRILL, PHYLLIS COWAN, JOEL CRISP, JAMES CROWDUS, TERESA CURLEY, KATHLEEN DARONE, THOMAS DARR, WILLIAM DAVIS, DEBORAH DAVIS, STEVE DAY, CHERYLE DEELY, ANN DEMETER, KATHLEEN DEVERS, PATRICIA DEWALT, ROBERT 76 DIETRICH, JAMES DIXON, BOBBIE DODD, JOSEPH DOYLE, JESSE DOWELL, GLENN DYER, JUNE EHRHART, KENNETH ELEY, CYNTHIA ELLIOTT, TONY ELLIS, WALTER ERICKSON, DIANE EVANS, MARY EVANS, SHARON FARLEY, SHERRY FARMER, DAVID FEINDT, MICHAEL FISHER, CHERIA FITTS, KATHERYN FLAHIVE, EDWARD FLATT, KEVIN FINK, DEBORAH FORGARTY, JAMES FONTES, MARK FOTAKIS, DEBRA FURNEISEN, CRAIG FUTCH, JENNY GALLIOT, ANN MARIE GALPIN, MARY GENZIER, JEFF GEORGE, DREXELL GESSERT, GAIL GILBERT, KEITH GODSEY, GAYLE GOLDSMITH, GREG GORDON, PHYLLIS GORHAM, PATRICIA GRADY, DANIEL GRAUMANN, MIKE GRIFFIN, SHARON GROFF, ROXANNE HADDOCK, DEBRA HAGA, PHYLLIS HALL, WILLIAM HAMMERSLEY, RICHARD HANCHIN, JAMES HANNULA, LYNN HARRIS, ANGELA HARRISON, KAREN HART, CYNTHIA HATCH, MARY HAUGH, DIANA HECOX, LAWRENCE HEDDINGS, MARK HENSON, CAROL HENSON, KATHRYN HITAFFER, TIMOTHY HODGES, ANN HOLLEMAN, GARY HOTTLE, MICHAEL HUFF, SHIRLEY HUNTER, BARRY HUNTINGTON, CINDY HUTCHINSON, JANIE ITEN, VICTORIA JACOBSEN, ROGER JENNINGS, CATHY JOLLEY, TERRIE JONES, PAMELA KEEVAN, DAVID KENNY VALERIE JOHSON, NANCY JONES, CHERYL JUSTICE, THOMAS KELLER, CHARLES KENT, TIMOTHY 81 KESTNER, SUSAN KING, JOSEPH LANIER, GREGORY LAWRENCE, WARREN LINK JOHN KEYSER, ROGER KITTS, RICHARD LARSEN, ELIZABETH LEFLER, JEANNIE LINS JOHANNA KING, EARL LANGFORD, RICHARD LASO, ELENA LEWIS, KAREN LYLES BARBARA LYNN, GARY LUDWICK, JAMES MCCALL, NANCY McCLAIN, MICHAEL McGUIN, GARY McGUIN, HARRY McGUIN, LAURENE McGUINN, THOMAS McKAY, WILLIAM McLANE, EVELYN MADISON, STEPHEN MEADE, EDNA MANN, KATHY MEADE, HUSEY MARKLE, LENORA MASON, RICHARD MATTHEWS, JOE MEDFORD, TRACEY MELANSON, BILL 83 MELANSON, JOHN MICKEY, BARBARA MILLER, PAMELA MESSINGER, STEVEN MILLER, JOSEPH MILLIGAN, WENDY MOCK, JOHN MOFFETT, JAMES MOLINA, CHRISTINE MOORE, PETER MOORE, SANDRA MORELAND, PATTI MORRIS, GAIL MORRIS, KAREN MORRIS, SHARON MORRISON, LORANNE NALLS, MARY NELSON, EVERETT NICHOLS, PHIL NORTON, ROBIN OLSEN, PATRICIA O’BRIEN, DIANA O’CONNOR, CYNTHIA OSTERGREN, DIANE ORANGE, JAMES OURS, CAROL OWEN, JOSEPH OWENS, RALPH PADGETT, GARY PATTERSON, EDWIN PAYNE, DONALD PEARCE, IRA PENNINGTON.

Actually, this night was just beginning with the sun’s setting. Hours of preparation go into one big night in which couples “paint the town.” Some went in groups, others preferred to be alone and share the excitement of the night. The fine restaurants of Virginia and D. C. were popu¬ larized. Some even pulled up at the Crystal City Marriott in chauffeur driven limousines. Girls appeared with beautiful gowns and shining hair. Guys rocked out in rented tuxes and platform shoes. Florists had a booming business in corsages and buttonaires. Couples dances and chatted away the gala evening in a crowded room . . . the queen was announced . . . the band played on as the night slipped into morning. At one o’clock it was officially over but many went out for breakfast, caught forty winks of sleep, watched the sun rise, and headed toward the beach, or to work. Is i Jm, I ' " k Wwj.

Boys wear dark shoes, dark pants, ties, light shirts. Girls wear white dresses and white shoes—please don’t wear clogs.” First time to wear caps and gowns ... a fast Processional. Then came the Invocation, given by Sue Kestner, who spoke of peace and happiness. Chris Austin gave a new twist to the Welcoming Speech rephrasing the old line, “don’t look up a dead horse’s tail.” The Inspirational message was delivered by Reverend Father Paschal Balkan, OSCO, the Associate Pastor of St. Lawrence’s Church. He was most candid in his beliefs and very frank in giving advice to the class. “Experience is the best teacher ... if you don’t remember any¬ thing else I say, remember these words from the Bible, “ ... in the evening of your life you will be judged on how you loved.” This was followed by the singing of “The Lord’s Prayer” by Mr. Parker. Caro¬ line Hatch took the text of the Benediction from Proverbs 30 which explains that man should not be stupid but learn from “the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a serpent on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden.” The class formed the Recessional and Seniors were heard the whole week preceeding Graduation humming Pomp and Circumstance. 100 CONVOCATION Be here at 8:30 a.m. . . . Remember there’s a beat to the music . . . don’t come down the aisles like you’re on your way to a fire ...” Computer cards are given out for the last time, " Don ' t lose your card-if you do, don’t forget your number. Everyone is welcomed, the Pledge of Allegiance is said, the National Anthem is sung, the announcement of scholarships is made by Mr. Gianakaris and the Choir sings Both Sides Now and God Bless the Child. The presentation of awards goes as follows-Departmental Awards: Art to Cindy Amos, Band to 1 Chumley, Choral to Gail Gessert, Business Education to Georgine Rizor, Debate to Kathy Asente, Drama to Greg Goldsmith, English to Cindy Amos!

Bottom: the solemn Seniors. 101 GRADUATION ’73 Finally it came, along with grandparents, aunts, first and fifth cousins, the do’s and don’ts, the announcements that many sent out at the last minute, tears, kisses and more kisses (for good luck, of course). “Be here at 7:00, start early, you know there’s always a traffic jam . . . Take pic¬ tures before you leave home—after gradu¬ ation you will march directly back into school to turn in your caps and gowns.” Bob Connolly spoke his last words as class president, gifts were presented to Mrs. Cirelli, Miss Kill, Mrs. McClurg, a round of applause for Mr. Parker, a class reunion in five years —mark your calendars. Each graduate prayed that he wouldn’t trip in front of the stadium full of people. Four years ended with a short walk across the platform. A mob scene erupted in back of the school as everyone hunted family and friends. This resulted in a horrible traffic jam with all in a rush, but most of all, the Seniors impatient to get out. After the formal ceremonies were over, the festivities began! For many, this would be the last chance to see each other. The graduates came home exhausted, eyes closed to the world, but never to for¬ get GRADUATION ’73. UK ■ , - -fUfc ' - K ■ ■ x i It 1 I Top: The honor guard falls into step.

They took away our concessions And left us in the hole, We had to come up with something To mend our broken souls. With money to buy equipment The girls could surely win, Cause we could use the extras To mend our souls again. We came up with an idea To help us out of this spot, We could sell nice sweaters And come out on the top. To our dismay, after endless begging We were turned down And every one of us frowned. But we came back with a bound With a new idea we found ... A coat check Was put on deck and approved. O Happy Day! Ten cents a coat sure isn’t much But we get to see the games And now the girls can thank us In the Monogram Coat-Check Hall of Fame. 160 VARSITY CLUB Row One: M. Harper, M. Kilby, A. Ellis, V.

George Allen and the Redskins took us to the Super Bowl, millions of Americans watched the Inauguration of Nixon and Agnew, the troops were withdrawn from Vietnam, P.O.W.’s were released, the draft ended, the dol¬ lar was devalued, inflation continued as did Phases three and four, planes were hijacked, three dissatisfied Indians took to the warpath at Wounded Knee, pollution, the population ex¬ plosion, and Watergate were problems left on the Earth as astronauts walked and lived on the Moon. Protest, pride, power, and even apathy were signs of the time. Another year gone by. 180 days passed. Bells ring.

The success or foibles of a book will not be fully realized until five or ten years from now. Then we’ll wonder what made the ' 72- 73 school year different from all the rest—or is there a dif¬ ference in each school year? What makes the times different—the people— and each person holds a different opinion of the school. It is difficult to express with words or capture in pictures every feeling. Some will note the absence of color in this book but color is expensive and due to financial difficulties beyond our control we could not include it. We hope that black and white photographs are just as meaningful. Enjoy the 1973 Talon and Good Luck to the students, faculty, administration, and graduates. The Talon Staff The ’73 Talon Staff wishes to specially acknowledge the following people: Mr. Tom Young of Paragon Press—“Keep the faith!” f Mr. George Deal and Mr. Robert Nichols of LaMont Studios-for excellent, speedy service and cheerful help. Mrs. Susan Kulesher and Mr. Willis Clark for their aid and support in the pub¬ lications Drive. Mr. Bob Wisniewski for technical advice and use of the darkroom. Mr. Brian Sarsfield for his total dedication to The Book and the long hours of the summer of ’73. Mr. Don Seemuller for his unselfish photographic contribution to the Talon. Walt Skirven— the king of the advertising solicitors. Pam Mathias, Elaine Feagans, Barbara Mickey, and Bill McKay— for many long typesheets. Cindy— who made it possible!
