We live in a world
dominated by energy.

to our own weekend
plans revolve around
the oil industry. Port

refineries and ports claim to lloil the world."
The oil industry touches our lives every day,
whether it's because our parents work for the
refineries, or because we see the plants almost
every day, or even because we gas up our
cars so often.
But petroleum energy isn't the only kind of
energy around. There's energy in the muscles
that build a bonfire, in cheers of support at a
pep rally, and in the laughter and excitement
before a big game.

Even when the sun goes
down, energy still surrounds
us. Headlights and
streetlights can been seen
along the highway,
illurninating our Friday and
Saturday nights. A bonfire
glows against a darkening sky
to lift spirits and warm faces
that get too close. Stadium

The Tunnel of Love was the theme
for this year's Valentine dance. The
dance, sponsored by the
cheerleaders, and Congress
presented the atmosphere of an
amusement park. A wonderland of
heart mobiles were fastened prac-
tically everywhere to the ceiling. The
tables were decorated with plastic
wine glasses and filled with red hots
in the shape of hearts. Plants were
borrowed from Alston's nursery to
put the right effect in the backdrop.
Even though Friday, the 13th was the
date of the dance, it turned out to be
a lucky day for most sweethearts.

Since we were short of money and the
theme of this year's Homecoming dance was
"jackets Are Everywhere," we found it dif-
ficult to think up decorations pertaining to the
theme. So, we ended up having to make the
paper footballs and miniature goalposts dur-
ing the 6:00 meetings at lane's house. Those
meetings however, posed more of a problem
than the decorations. With Band, Hussars and
Swingsters, it was hard to make them. But

Wearily, we trudged through ankle deep water,
battled raging blizzards, melted from the sun's pelting
rays and sat through hundreds of lectures on pointing
toes, picking up knees, memorizing music and correct
horn position. We learned that circles were not com-
posed of straight sides and pointed corners and piled
us demerits which quickly formed an We knock-,
ed on doors selling candles, fruitcakes, cheese and!
sausage until our knuckles became raw and blistered.
We were shoved, cursed at, and had ice and ketchup
thrown at us at the Cav-OILcade Parade.
Then once marching season was over. We took out
the french horns, concert tubas and new base and alto l
clarinets imported from France and began to prepare
for U.l.L. Which meant sectionals in the mornings and
often after school. Unfortunately, the postman goofed
and the entry fee dues were late so all of our!
ensembles couldn't go. Instead we concentrated on,
the band competition and listened to more lectures.
This time on intonation, breath support, separating
notes, or holding them out their full length, and most!
of all BALANCE!!!

do is play our horns and walk up and down the foot-

Little does the crowd know, as they cheer for the
Maroon and Gold Twirlers at pep rallies and football
games, all the hard work and reparation that are
behind them. Seemingly endless hours of practice are
devoted to perfecting finger twirls, wheels, figure
eights and twirling with knives and hoops as well as
batons, during marching season and in the spring to
perform at the Swingster Follies.
When the five girls attended camp this summer at
Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, they were honored
with being named Outstanding Twirling Line. They
also won individual ribbons ranging from good to
superior, and a spirit baton everyday. When com-
peting for Miss Majorette Queen, Debra Sanford took
the top honor with Vanessa Boyd as second runner
up. At camp, the Outstanding Twirling Line were
taught by the feature twirler from the University of

she begins the dance with a split contagion. The au-

llGood morning, l'm Danny Wyde, it is 2nd
period, Sept. 5, 1981. You are at the first Con-
gress meeting of the year." lt was time to get the
year rolling, elected representatives from every
homeroom in the entire school came together to
let Thomas jefferson know they were ready to
work. Congress had approximately 75
respresentatives and was headed by President
Danny Wyde, Vice-President Lisa Aranda, Rep.-
at-Large julie Pittman, and Secretary Ruth Ann
From the beginning of the year, to the end of
the year, Congress stayed active and has a lot to
look back on and be proud of.
llLet's take a look at some of the highlights of
Congress," stated Danny Wyde, on the eve of
the last Congress Meeting fCongress Banquetl.
To start off, Congress won the March of Dimes
trophy, collecting 6,000 dollars. Homecoming
parade had more entrants than ever before, and
940 people showed up to vote during the all-
school office elections. This was over half the
population of the student body. Danny went on
to brag a little about the Office of Parliamen-
tarian Thomas jefferson will hold next year on
the district level. It was a first for T.l. to run for
any district office.
Congress involves itself with everything con-
cerning the school, it would be impossible to list
all thie accomplishments Congress has to be pro-

The Red Hussar Drum and Bugle
Corps had a very busy and exciting
year. The corgs was under the second
year sponsors ip of Ms. Marsha Comer.
The corps started practice in luly.
Through the mist, moscruitos, and heat
the corps had a beautifu Red and White
Day. The girls added spirit at games and
performed during halftimes. The corps
played the traditional "Eyes of Texas" at
every pep rally. The play off games
were great, double timing on turf is
something the girls will never forget.
The San Antonio trip was a real blast.
Mr. Rothenburger was the sponsor for
the corps. They waited seven hours for
the buses to finally show up, only to
have a blow-out in Houston. Once we
made it to San Antonio, after the storm
layed off, the girls and chaperones had
a great time.

54 princesses representing various clubs of Port Arthur, 41 were
1981 seniors from T.l.
The night of the coronation brought much excitement, but the
girls overcame their nervousness with ease. For instance,when
Yvonne Ashy's dress got caught on a box on the stage, she calmly
bent down, unhooked it, and went on, laughing. After the corona-
tion, there was a party at the home of Mr. and Mrs. lim Carr, which
was attended by the princesses and their escorts, and the visiting
duchesses and their escorts. The girls also attended the Mac Davis
concert, the Charley Pride concert, a dance at The Landing, a part at
the Flannagans, a television taping, rehearsals, charm classes, an in-
terview, and finally, the parade.
The parade offered many interesting circus costumes and floats.
Float rizes were awarded to Andrea Gonzales, whose club built
her a gig, pink elephant, lanis Newby, who sat on a trapeze, and lan
Moser, who was a tiger tamer fKara Gumberger was the tigerl. The
parade was followed by a luncheon for the entire party at the

Windsurfing: Mello sport I
With one look at him, he seems timid and serious not the surfing type, ye
Richard Mello is a self-made windsurfer. With sailing experience and some picture
of winsurfers he taught himself in two days.
Even though Richard knows how to sail he says sailing experience is no
necessary. Wind surfing re uires some skill but common sense is a must.
Richard teaches windsurfing on Sabine Lake. Some of his students are Doug Col
eman, john Richrd, Richard, Bert Lamson, and lack Anniboli.
Although windsurfing is not for everyone, Richard explains people who lik
water sports try it and love it. Skiers make the best windsurfers. Richard credits thi y
to the balance a skier has. .
What makes windsurfing great to Richard is l'the challenge between you and th l
sail." He goes on to explain that the upkeep is easy. Because the windsurfing ri
does not require much maintainence it is fairly cheap. lt's not heavy. One can just
toss it on the car. Five minutes is all it takes to attach the sail to the board.
Although windsurfing looks dangerous, the Coast Guard calls it one of the safes
water sports because the sail collapses when the rider falls off and can't g
anywhere until he climbs back on. l
According to Richard, interest in windsurfing is increasing locally but it is still
young sport. It was invented in California by two guys a surfer and a sailor, wha
decided to put the best of both sports together and came up with windsurfing. l
A windsurfer's rig costs about 5750 so naturally Richard advises potential windF
surfers to l'try before you buy."
ln October, 1979 P.M. Magazine on channel 6 in Beaumont featured Richar
demonstrating windsurfing. Unfortunately the interview was marred by the fact th
reporter called him Rick Clark.

What makes running long distance so easy for this
freshman, is that she's been running since seventh grade
at Edison. Paula was included in the 10 to finalists recent-
ly at a meet held at Forest Park, 'Although I don't come in
first all the time, I did come in first out of TJ."
Most students would like to have the ability to run long
distance like Paula. Alot of people don't enjoy running
but Paula says she loves running Marathons the most.
Running track sometimes interferes with other
students' social lives and school work, but Paula disagrees
with that. I'When we have track meets on Saturday, I
have all day Sunday to do my homework, so it isn't that
hard to keep up. As far as my social life, it really doesn't
bother me, 'cause most of my friends are on the track
Running requires good eating habits and lots of prac-
tice. III eat everything in sight, and as far as practicing on
weekends, I hardly ever do that. 'Cause I'm so tired from
practicing all week."

school activities. ul just liked the idea of running, but my
parents encouraged me a little."

Rushing into the room just getting to your desk
on time, hoping that you have the right book. You
take out a s eet of paper for the check test over a
story you didn't know you had to read. After the
test, you begin discussing, finding out that you pro-
bably didn't pass.
You begin studying either short stories, novels,
poetry, or plays, trying to remember all the literary
terms. Freshmen just living through Romeo and
luliet lnot knowing what's aheadl. Sophomores try
to stay awake during Julius Caesar, luniors attempt
to get all the facts in The Scarlet Letter and Seniors
struggle through Once And Future King.
Then the next step, ESSAYS! The word is enough
to scare you. Writing and rewriting each paragraph.
Finally, you hand in a neatly written essay saying,
"This is the best essay l've ever wrote." Then when
you get it back llyour best essay ever," it looks like
the teacher started bleeding on it. Plus those
famous essay tests in your lunior and Senior years.
The class seems longer each day. 10 minutes left,
5 minutes, 30 seconds, 10, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 - the BELL!
You finally wake up and go to your next class think-
ing about what you'll do in there tomorrow.

Journalism - an interesting class
First year journalism is an interesting and informative
lass. It deals with how our nation's mass media works
and the influence it has on the public. The class begins
ith a brief history of journalism and from there it
oes on to all aspects of communications. From
ewscasting to advertising, each student learns the
utline for a journalist's job.
Not only does journalism class teach media, it is one
lace for a student to have the opportunity to express
'heir views. By writing news stories and feature stories,
tudents are able to express their views on world hap-
enings as well as school.

Mathematics adds up to achievement
The mathematics program is based on the belief that
mathematics is of vital importance to many professions.
The math department offers more subjects than any
other department. We offer 14 courses from Fundamen-
tals to Advanced Theories in Math such as Calculus, and
Analytic Geometry. There are also other courses such as
Number Theory, and the History of Mathematics. The
math curriculum undergoes constant change so it will
continue to be up-to-date.
Many students who take math every year receive col-
lege credit for courses taken in high school through ad-

Math lab tS3Cl'lGS
Four years ago, we started a program in which
students could have special help and attention to aid
them with their difficulties in mathematics. This Math
Lab program can be taken advantage of by all
students and is directed mainly toward F.O.M. and LA.
students. Here, they learn such things as banking,
check balancing, and the filing of income tax as well as
basic mathematical skills. Students are sometimes
brought to the lab by their math teachers to get help in
a special area however many students come on their
own after school.
The idea of the Math Lab was conceived by Ms.
MacMillan who spent five years working to develop it.
'lShe is responsible for all the math labs in all of the
secondary schools" said Ms. Seiver. The Regional
Math Organization awarded Ms. MacMillan their first
outstanding teacher award.
The program is o erated by Ms. Carol Ross who
works with the studlents daily along with five other
teachers. She has been in charge of the lab for three

interesting and informative discussions and observ-
ing the stars and planets with two large telescopes.
Occasionally the club will be fortunate enough to
observe unusual things. l'At one meeting we saw a
satellite moving across the sky, then it just disap-
peared in the shadow of the earth," said Mr. Tolar.
The club also gets together for special happenings
like the eclipse of the moon, when they all
celebrated with hot chocolate. 'lWe have also
observed a partial eclipse of the sun," Mr. Tolar
Since the Astronomy Club was chartered in 1961,
more and more students have shown an interest in
it whether it is because of the revitalization of the
American stpace program with the space shuttle or
just to satis y curiosity about space.
Whether it's an American History, American Govern-
ment, or World History class, leaving is usually accom-
panied by writer's cramp.
Those are not the only classes in the social studies
department, though. This department also includes black
history, psychology, sociology and economics classes.
Students study the United States from reconstruction
after the Civil War through World War ll in American
History. World History contains the prehistoric cavemen
to World War ll. After a brief discussion of the
background of American Government, students begin an
indepth study of the entire American Government.
Black History covers all black history from the African
Black man through slavery to the present time. ln
psychology you learn why a person behaves a certain
way and what influences his or her behavior. Sociology,
unlike psychology, studies peoples' behavior not just the
study of the country's economics.
No matter which history class it is, writer's cramp from
notes and headaches from the test will remind you of

from calling us l'eggheads," or from making snide
remarks such as, llOh, you're in the Honor Society. I
thought you were normal." Some even classified us as
freaks tand not the cool kind, eitherj just because we
liked English and Algebra and Chemistry.
But unbeknownst to them, aside our grueling AP.
and Honor classes, we actually found time to par-
ticipate in extracurricular activities. Some of us played
football, volleyball, and ran track. We proved that all
jocks weren't dumb, Some of us marched, tvvirled and
memorized music. We had a lot more on our minds
than just Beowulf and Chemistry formulas.
So you see, vve're normal. We breathe, eat, sleep
and get in trouble occasionally just like everyone else.
Only we take pride in trying to get the best education
possible and that produces our good grades.

A happy huddle during the LaPorte game on a wet Saturday. The symbols and feelings of victory abound.
District - Dome - Dallas
The year it all came together. The Yellow jackets rampaged
through fourteen straight victories to win a berth in the state
Coach Thompson's third year as head coach, with previous
records of 1-9 and 6-4, proved that his training program would
be successful if given time.
The first chance to prove the worth of the Yellow jacket
team, which boasted a high powered offense and re-vitalized
defense, came in a preseason scrimmage against Aldine
The offense, sparked by quarterback Todd Dodge, fullback
Don Holloway, and All-State receiver Brent Duhon, fulfilled
everything predicted about them by scoring an amazing five
touchdowns in twenty lays,
The maroon and gold defense, led by, standouts Troy Ter-
rell, Mark Lewis, Don Holloway, and Robert Smothers, shut
down the Houston team's offense completely. Aldine Mac
managed to score twice, but both TDfs came against the se-
The Yellow jackets were given a ii2 state ranking on the APl
and a 114 on the UPI polls, but Coach Thompson told his
players to pay no attention to publicity. Instead he had them
focus on the season opener against top ten ranked LaPorte.
Tropical Storm Danielle forced the first game to be played
on Saturday afternoon instead of Friday night, but the delay
didn't hurt jefferson as they rolled over the Bulldogs 41-14.
Next they traveled to Baytown to take on the Ganders. The
jackets controlled the entire game and won 21-0. Then came
Vider, who played hard while trying to capture their first win
and made it a close game before falling 24-21.
Tj met and blew out West Orange-Stark, 30-6. The jacket
offense penetrated the Mustang's 20 yard-line in the first three
tluarters before turning the game over to backup players for
t e Final period.
Perhaps the most important win came against Port-Neches
Groves, an exciting game - 14 to 13. james Wallace made a
game saving tackle to preserve Tj's one-point lead.
The jacets simply overpowered BC-P, Forest Park, Lincoln,
Nederland, and French to dominate 22-5A. The offense scored
a walloping 218 points in the last 5 games, while the defense
held opponents to a total of 32.
The Yellow jackets stormed into the Astrodome for their bi-
district tilt against Houston's Aldine Mustangs. The maroon and
gold intimidated scrappy Aldine 49-6 to advance to the
The Lalvtarque Cougars proved to be the fastest most ex-
plosive team Tj had met all year, The Yellow jackets managed
to outscore the Cougars, 29-24.
Tj had no problems reaching the state championship with
easy wins over Stratford and San Antonio Lee.
But, it seemed, the magic couldn't last forever as the jackets
were shocked by the Odessa Permain Panthers. Tj went into
the game two-touchdown favorites, but couldn't outrun the
speedy Panthers. The scored ended Tj - 19, Odessa 28 but
t e loss couldn't snuff the fire that Coach Thompson had
rekindled in PA football.
This was the year of the jackets!

Beating the odds
The first playoff game of the season was a first in more ways
than one - specifically a first at the Astrodome, a first playing on
Astroturf and a first playing a ball game after spending the night in a
hotel. And the idea of being in the playoffs itself was enough to
shake up a pro.
Unfamiliarities were abundant. The long bus rides, keeping up
with your hotel key, getting up Nearly" on Saturdays, and having
one day for your bruised muscles to rest before practice on Mon-
day. Trying to come to a sudden stop on Astroturf is like trying to
land a space shuttle in your garage - it just does not work. When
linebackers try to call out formations on the turf, they might as well
have cotton in their ears because sound travels as slow as
Christmas in the Dome. The acoustics were rotten.
After the 2nd playoff game, the unfamiliar was becoming routine
and llcomfortablef' Meals at Wyatts were a fact of life, and Mar-
riott hotels were home away from home. Playing electronic games
on the Greyhound pilgrimages had become a weekend ritual. And
Astroturf was viewed as alot better than the llAstro-cementf' of
the old practice field, The Dome was our home.

not turn out exactly as planned, they had many
valuable experiences. They dinked, spiked,
bumped, and served their way through their

posed of seniors, juniors and sophomores alike,
were very energetic and vigorous, not only in the
3:00 to 5:00 practices every Monday, Wednesday,
and Friday, but also when playing each opponent.
For instance in playing BCP, the first district game,
the teams were so evenly matched that the scores
went into the 20's, 118-20, 20-221. This energy was
transmitted by their number one Ladyjacket, Ms.
Bertha Hebert, who makes the business of playing
