At times, we all have our embarrassing moments as well
as our first times. From walking into the wrong class,
wrecking your car for the first time, to falling down the
stairs at school and your first kiss. They accompany us
through high school. Everyone remembers at least one em-
barrassing time in his life. One that he wishes he 81
everyone else could forget. Unfortunately your embarrass-
ing moments are the ones people remember the most.
For instance, one Sunday, Chrissy Cockrell - 12, walk-
ed all the way to the front of her church with the back of
her dress unzipped. Chrissy says, "lt would not have been
so bad if there weren't 50 people already in church who
saw me!" Or how about the time Nan Balzerson - 12
stood up from her desk in psychology and in the process,
ripped the whole side of her shirt. "lt was pretty embar-
rassing, but no biggie," says Nan. -
Have you ever made a fool out of yourself, in front of
JANET JACKSON LOOK OUT! Kristi Floyd - 11
does a great imitation of Janet Jackson when trying
out for varsity cheerleader.
2000 people? Over the summer, Wendy Hester - 11, did
just that. She was working as a "Gator Gal" at the Gator
Baseball games. 'il was doing a real good job at it, too,"
she says, 'iUntil l fell down the bleachers one night!" Lucki-
ly the only thing hurt was her pride.
The only good thing that comes from these embarrassing
moments and first time is that they provide a good source
of entertainment. lt's fun to sit around and talk about all of
the dumb things we've done during our life time and it's
definitely a subject that everyone can join in cn.

Just Blame It on MURPHY
If something can go wrong, it will, lt's Mur-
phy's Law folks, and it applies to everyone.
Nobody knows who Murphy is but he must
have led a pretty hard life. Did you ever have
one of those days that went wrong from start to
finish? You woke up late, breakfast was cold,
your favorite jeans were dirty, your car
wouldn't start, the line at the attendance office
was a mile long, and that was all before school
How about the time you dediced to run the
are Jw Y, +
red light on that deserted street because there
is never a cop there, and then you saw lights
flashing in the rearview mirror?
Remember the time you decided to stay out
an extra twenty minutes because your parents
are never up anyway, and you were so proud
of yourself for sneaking into the house and all
the way to your room without making a sound
and they your turned on the light, turned
around, and your parents were sitting on your
bed waiting patiently for their little darling to
come home? Or what about the time you decide
ed not to do your Algebra because your
teacher had not been taking up the homework
all week long? Then you walked into the
classrooms and the first words our of her
mouth were, "Get out your homework papers
and pass them to the front of the row." And
she just did not seem to believe you when you
told her you were kidnapped by terrorists who
thought it was plans for some secret attack.
If you are thinking Murphy's Law does not
apply to you then think again, because chances
are while you are sitting here reading this and
thinking it couldn't happen to you, the elusive
Murphy is plotting your downfall.

Long practice hours makes for near-perfect
Though nobody really likes long, hard prac-
tices, many people give up two to three hours a
day trying for perfection. The Lady Jackets
basketball and volleyball teams are a very good
example. Practice lasts about three to four
hours on some days and even longer on others.
Apparently, those practices paid off, as the
Lady Jackets won district.
The band was "lucky enough" to be able to
practice outside in the searing heat. During the
summer they were in the band hall from 9:30
a.m. till 12 noon. Marc Guidry - 10 com-
mented, "We underclassmen have to walk over
to the auxilary field, but the upperclassmen
with cars can drive." Michael Gary - 10 said,
"The weather is like the school's air condition-
ing and heating systems: in the summer it's too
hot and in the winter it's too cold." When it
rained, the wooden instruments were damaged
because of the expansion of the wood.
The Swingsters had to deal with the heat,
too, but with the short skirts they also had to
worry about ants, Toni Fontenot - 12 said,
"The grass and ants got so bad I had to get my
dad's lawn mower and mow the grass myself."
Julie Perritt - 10 said, "lt's really fun, but it's
tiring and there's no time for myself.
The Hussars also have to put up with many
of these problems, but the students are not the
only ones out there practicing. Miss Doyle, the
Hussar's new sponser, said, "For the sponsor,
practice never stops. When the girls are prac-
ticing a manuever for one week I'm busy think-
ing of one for the next."
If you want to get better at what you do best,
it takes a lot of practice, and that's what any
group has to do to become successful. For ex-
ample, the football team is at school from -5 'til
late at night preparing for the next big game.
Randolph Brooks - 12 said, "There were
some days when practice totally annoyed me,
but it's worth it, I love football." The team real-
ly works hard by lifing weights and running
plays before the games on Friday.
Even though the practices were long and
hard and tiring they seemed to have paid off in
the end. So whether you were stuck on the
courts, sweating on the track, or fainting in the
fields, just remember that when UII., tour-
naments, and contests rolled around it was all

Don'i Get Caught in Town forthe Summer!
SUMMER! BEACHES! VACATIONS!
Those words are enough to turn your
average, ordinary teenager into an ab-
normal, radical animal. Summer vaca-
tion is usually the one thing that gets
most high school students through the
rough school year. They do their
homework and pass their tests only to
be able to hit the beaches on the last
day of school. Students finally get their
chance to sleep late, stay out until the
crack of dawn, and worry about ab-
Senior Carla Graham said, "This past
summer was great with all of the beach
parties, but now I can hardly wait for
the end of this school year to get away
from Once and Future King." Yes, the
seniors are free from having to worry
about whether or not they will finish
reading the novel on time, while the
underclassmen's troubles are just
Although some students would love
to have summer vacation forever,
others would have it end in a second.
Many of them had very busy schedules
and would have given anything for one
Then, there were the luck students
who got to travel around the country
side. Pam Myers - 12 said "This
summer I went to Colorado. I had a
great time hiking through the moun-
tains and riding horses. Ward Scott
- 11 went to the Cayman Islands. "I
met people from all over the world.
When I told them I was from Port Ar-
thur I had to explain exactly where It
Even though you were able to
leave Port Arthur it didn't necessarily
mean you were able to sit back,
relax, and enjoy the scenery. Many
high school students worked over
the summer. Some of the less for-
tunate ones had to work within the
city limits while the luckier ones
worked out of town. Joe Drago - 11
was one of them. "I had a blast over
the summer! I went to work at my
father's store in San Antonio. The
fun part about it was my father
wasn't there." The summer didn't go
well for every student vacationer.
Juanita Vara - 12 said, "I went to
Padre Island, I had a lot of fun until
my car got stuck in the sand and I
had to be pushed out."
Well. after all the fun and games are

Who Sags e Don't Have
School Spirit. "What is it?" you ask.
Well, it's something that- adds a little ex-
citement to the dull routine of school life.
Imagine coming to school, doing your
assignments, passing those long, dreadful
tests and going home afterwardsg not at-
tending any club meetings, afterschool
practice, pep rallies, or sports events.
School would be totally unbearable if it
were just work, work, work. Students
wouldn't have a chance to have any fun or
crack a few jokes before hitting the books.
Spirit Week is a great time for students to
let their true colors show. Fausto Meza -
12 said, "Spirit Week is a fun change in
everyone's weekly routine and also a
great time to bring a camera."
During the school year there are many
events devoted to increasing school spirit.
The pep rallies for the football games are
the most popular. ln years past, these pep
rallies were held during school, but unfor-
tunately, House Bill 72 changed all of that
and now pep rallies are held after school.
Because of this, attendance isn't as good
as it used to be. Jennifer Roccaforte - 12
said, "The pep rallies were good at times,
but they could have been better if more
people would have shown up to cheer the
During these pep rallies students are
encouraged to cheer their team on to vic-
tory, which they did often since the
Jackets made it all the way to the Dome.
This also increased a lot of people's
school spirit. Kevin Davis - 12 com-
mented, "l was flabbergasted by the
arousement of the fans."
The Hussars, Band, Football team and
Clubs wouldn't be very successful without
the help of those spirited fans cheering.

School without school spirit would be like being in a morgue for
g, four years. A school needs spirit because it makes it interesting
and a bit more fun to come to school. lt also helps our sports-teams
when they need it. lt really helps boost morale. Having spirit sort of unifies
the school, making us all pull together like a family in order to create a
greater sense of spirit. Being a Hussar you need to have school
spirit. Laurie Porras - 12 I

Some students prefer loveable cartoon characters such as

But there are more ways than iust clothes to show the real you.
There are the ever popular bumper stickers and window signs.
Nearly everyone had a diamond shaped yellow tag sporting some
witty saying such as Steph White's: "Mafia Staff Car." Then there
are the bumper stickers that say, "Hit me, I need the money" or "I
don't get mad, I get even." Some show school spirit, like the

"because it gives me something to do or read during classes."
Most folders sport slogans like, "Ride to live, live to ride", "Marcy

Many students set themselves apart from the crowd by their
nicknames. They pay T-shirts Plus to print names like David
Robinson's, who's called Iceman, Franklin lthe Hangmanl

the wearer's personality.
Whether it's tee-shirts, cars, bumper stickers, hats, folders. or
buttons: students really know how to show their stuff through their
own kind of sign language.

There was a fresh sense of pride that ac-

rallies and decorating of the school before the
games. "Everyone seemed so excited about

There were older fans as well as young

Buying corsages and wondering whether or
not you're getting asked to the dance are just
some of the events involved with homecoming.
Everyone began to prepare for the
homecoming football game and the crowning
of the queen. The sun disappeared, and the
moon took its place. The stands slowly filled
with people eating and talking. As half time
drew near, the homecoming princesses grew
tense. Both sides had completed their perfor-
mances, and the band formed the traditional TJ
and the Hussars their heart. Then the tension
mounted as the band began playing "Friends."
The princesses were introduced. First to be
recognized was Kris Chirafis - 12, Leigh-An
Guidry - 12, DeEdria McDaniel - 12, han-
non Moore - 12, Vanessa Quintela - 12, and
last but not least Gretchen Vaughan - 12. The
silence was at an overwhelming high as the
name "Vanessa Quintela" was called, the
crowd roared as our '86-'87 queen was crown-
ed, Vanessa after being crowned, through an
ear to ear smile stated, "l was excited and sur-
prised. l felt that it was an honor being crown-
ed, because my sister was also homecoming
The night came to an end and the crowd
departed. However, the night was not over.
There was still a victory over Nederland to be
celebrated at the dance. Some arrived at the
cafeteria, took pictures and left, but many also
stayed. Kathy Salvagio - 10 said, "Alter the
game I went to the dance, I had a lot of fun."
The activities came to an end and so did the
night as the dance rounded out the evening.

Believe it or not, everyone has some
type of school spirit. If you went to just
one football game or participate in any
school activity you have school spirit. One
of the most popular times to show your
spirit is during Homecoming Week. You
may have seen a few witches and clowns
roaming the halls, or even a few hippies
sitting under trees. No, the majority of T.J.
students haven't "lost their minds,"
although some are steadily on their way.
They were only participating in spirit
week. Students were asked to dress up
on designated days to help build up
school spirit for the big Homecoming
Game on Friday night. "l think spirit week
was great. There were a lot of people who
participated, and they all had a great
time," said Shana Veillion.
During spirit week most students were
HF A .1
-, ,.. ' " tf.:f1'4.'
able to relax and take it easy for a while.
They forgot about the long, endless
homework assignments and boring lec-
tures just long enough to realize that the
saying, "All work and no play is dull, is
usually true, or is it?"
Many clubs and organizations also got
into the excitement of school spirit week.
DECA coordinator, Mrs. White helped
students organize a Jelly Bean Contest, a
baby picture display, the annual dunking
booth, and a float for the Homecoming
Parade. The main attraction was the dunk-
ing booth. During lunch, students could try
their luck at dunking someone by paying
2511: for three chances.
Mr. White agreed to sit in the booth dur-
ing first lunch. He unwisely taunted many
of the students and was dunked quite a
few times. Sirikit Dickson - 12 said, "I

think spirit week is fun. It helps the
students get into the spirit of Homecom
ing. It allows laughter among the student:
and it gives everyone a chance to par
ticipate in a school activity."
FHA members also participated in the
fun, many members of the club gave ut
their free time after school and or
weekends to prepare for the annua
parade down Twin City Highway. Juanita
Vara - 12 agrees that it was a lot of fun
"I think spirit week is great, but I don't par
ticipate in all of the activities because tot
many people would laugh at me. As long
as I go to the games and cheer the jacket:
on, that's my spirit."

Cav-Oil-Cade Parade, Pageant Big Success
The Cav-Oil-Cade Pageant is always one
of the most exciting events of the year.
Although many girls were in it just for fun,
others competed to win, and did! The new
queen, Kris Charafis remarked, "Winning
Cav-Oil-Cade Queen was a great honor. I
never dreamed of achieving this title."
The theme for the Cav- il-Cade Pageant
was, "A Salute to the Sesquicentennial,"
and the event was held in the Port Arthur
Civic Center. For entertainment, the
princesses walked up the aisles while car-
rying flags and then crisscrossed on center
stage. Terri Bushnell - 12 said, "lt was a
great experience and very exciting. It is
something that I will remember for the rest
of my Iife."
As the night came to a close, the winners
were finally announced. Sandra Mitchell -
12 exclaimed, "I was ecstatic, thrilled, and

as finalist. It was really unexpected."

mospherefl says Laurelle Rethke - 12.
Everyone enjoys going to the dances.
Everywhere you look you can see a student danc-
ing with a date, dancing by a table, or even danc-
ing in the entrance line while waiting to pay. Final-
ly, when the last picture is taken and the last song
is played, students can go home and look forward
to the next dance. Students will probably never
forget the dances that added a slight touch of glit-
ter to their lives,

Learning After Hours
4'It's a dirty job, but somebody's got to do
it." How many times have you heard this from
students who find themselves having to work to
"make ends meet?" The number of students
who have gotten jobs has increased greatly in
the last few years, due in part to the economy
problem of course. More and more now, there
are students signing up for the HECE and DE
job programs. In .these programs, the students
go to work either in the mornings or afternoons
in order to get the required hours to graduate.
Desiree Taylor -- 12 says "I-I.E.C.E. is a great
course. It helps you get the experience needed
to work on a job when you get out of school."
Although many students work, not all of
them are in these job programs. Many students
have to work after school, which therefore re-
quires them to juggle free time, homework, and
The types of jobs are widely ranged, from
cashier at a fast food restaurant to yard boy for
an appliance center, While some students have
to work to help out at home, the majority of
them work for their own benefits, mainly for
money to blow on the various things they say
they "need" Danny Gordy - 12 opinion on
the matter is "I work so that I can spend all the
money l make on myself, and my parents can't
say anything about it."
Most parents don't argue when their kids go
to work, because they look at it as an easy way
to keep them out of trouble and teach them
some responsibility at the same time. Sandy
Lambert - 12 says "lt's great to work when
you can blow the money on fun, but it's a drag
when the check has to pay the bills." For some,
it doesnit exactly pay the bills, but it saves a lot
Whatever the reason, going to work in high
school is a good way to get experience, save
some money, and learn some responsibility all
at the same time.

Study time was dreaded, but valuable
The school year seemed to whiz by as the
teachers franticaly try to squeeze in all of the
essential elements required by the state.
Sometimes, the essential elements would be fit
in, in rather unorthodox ways, but overall,
essential elements were a unique tand oc-
casinally humorousl experience.
Another thing that sped up the passing of the
school year was the 6 weeks between report
cards. Break that 6 weeks into two halves of 3
weeks each, and they seem to go by extremely
fast. Extremely fast, that is until the last 3
weeks. Then each day begins to go slower and
slower and slower, but eventually, it ends.
Academics has become increasingly impor-
tant with the No Pass No Play law and the
onset of the TEAMS test. Passing grades, and
minimal skills are now among the most impor-
tant parts of the school year, and without them,
they become the only part of the school year

Foreign Language Students Find Out What's Happening
Thomas Jefferson offers many electives in its
academic curriculum. Among these electives,
Foreign Language is included. Our school of-
fers several choices such as Spanish and
French, which are the two most commonly
taken as well as German and Latin. Many
students enroll in these classes for various
reasons, however, the most common is college
related. uSpanish helps students learn not only
the language, but also the culture," says Lu-
cian Adams - 12.
ln the past couple of years, colleges have re-
quired at least two years of foreign language
classes. This is because of the variety of culture
in our country and the ever-increasing need for
foreign linguists. Lately, the need for inter-
preters in the U.S. has steadily risen in some
areas, and so the colleges have decided to rein-
force English-speaking students with at least
one other language. The Texas Education
Agency has also required Texas schools to
teach English as a second language to foreign
Many students, after enrolling because of
college or by choice, come to either like or
dislike the course. The one aspect the students
like a lot is when they have labs. These labs
consist of trying out foods of that particular
culture. "Personally I like this course because I
know in college it will be of some help. But l
must admit the lab really makes it fun. It gives
us a break from work." Bobby Adams - 11.
In Madame Loukas' French class, these
dishes include pastries, gumb, and fresh bread.
Eight pizzas and head stickes were the m
course in Mrs. Dilworth's Latin food lab. Tac
burritos, and fajitas filled the Spanish tables
Senor Hanks and Senora Pickard.
The foreign language classes offer the opp
tunity to be able to become familiar with
norms and values of other cultures. This x
shown when the Spanish lll class performed
plays Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little I
Riding Hood, and The Three Wishes. Th
plays were performed in a Spanish dialog
Many students enjoyed the performances, 2
found it fun as well as educational. UPerform
in the plays and watching my classmates 1:
form was fun and I-learned that it's not as e.
as it looks," said Edward Robertson - 12. .
The type of work required is basically mi
the same in every foreign language class. lf
Balzerson - 12 said, uWe do vocabulary E
translations each week, and memory workl
each six weeks." The memory work ranl
from Cicero's orations against Cataline to
school song in Spanish or French.
Foreign Language courses are beneficial
all in their own way. They provide interest z
also broaden one's communication sp
Although there is a lot of work invovled in th
classes, as a whole, they are well worth it an
is fun to be a part of. 'tThese classes
beneficial and well in turn become a useful i
later in life. If visiting some foreign land, tl
will be well appreciated," said Corey Prater

H-classes can be hazardous to your health
Lecture, Notex, Homework, Tests. It all
sounds simple enough, Well anyone who is in
Honors level classes such as Ms. Smith's AP
English or Mr. Sell's Chemistry will definitely
have his own opinion about this "exciting and
intriguingn way of life.
Students who have chosen to pursue an
education on an Honors level have also agreed
to take on the added responsbilities. The big-
gest difference between Honors classes and
regular classes is the pace. In Mrs. Seivers H
Calculus there are at least 15-20 problems a
night. The material only seems harder to learn
since there is less time in which to learn it.
However, the other differences cannot be
overlooked, also add the pressure of making
the grade. A teacher feels that 'since this is
justifiably so. Unfortunately, the extra time
needed to pass the class just adds to the
pressures these students are already under.
These factors are compounded by the extreme
peer pressure added by other students and
makes taking H-level classes much less appeal-
ing then they should be.
A students who is serious about an education
and about learning should be attracted to these
classes instead of turned off by the immense
pressure they can put on someone. Full atten-
tion is required to achieve the goals set by the
students themselves, namely to pass the class.
Many times the class demands a of lab work,
such as Advanced Journalism with the year-
book and newspaper. Teachers should also
understand that a book education is not the on-
ly learning needed. A student's expectations of
himself should be a large part of his motivation
Being in the honors program is a treat, but
some scholars that feel to really get the max-
imum effort of "Hari-Kari" they must also try

yearbook and newspaper staffs have to

spent on yearbook work.
Band is one lab class that has suffered
under House Bill 72, in that their students
must take at least 2 written tests a year, at
exam times. However, throughout the rest
of the year, their classes consist strictly of
playing their instruments. Hussars is
another class that falls under this
classification. They have written tests at
exam times, but spend the rest of their
time planning and practicing marching
Photo journalism is not a subject that
could be easily understood without actual-
ly handling a camera. The same holds true
Therefore, lab classes are the
preference of more students because they
spend class time actually experiencing the
activities and therefore learning more.

The Words Out
Lecture Classes aren't always
boring, they can be interesting
Throughout a student's high school career
many required courses are taken. Most of
these courses consist of what could be called,
"lecture classes." lt is not uncommon for these
classes to be stereotyped as quote "boring"
These planned speeches are often delivered
without enthusiasm, but there are good lec-
tures as well as bad ones. The basic lecture
merely appeals to the auditory senses and will
not be absorbed as well as if it had a little
A familiar verse says, "l'd rather see a ser-
mon than hear one anydayf' The same holds
true for lectures. The point is, of course, that
more is learned through usual lessons than
from what is only spoken. These aids leave a
picture in the student's minds, enabling him to
remember more of the lessons being taught. As
the song says, 'LA picture is worth a thousand
These lessons can also be spiked with other
devices. Poems, songs or acronyms are usually
effective. lt is easy to memorize words or
phrases set to music, and most people know
that ROY G. BIV tells the colors of the rainbow
in their correct order. All of Ms. Butler's
students know that Kitchen Patrol comes Once

carry home the title of Texaco Star Academic
Challenge Champion. The Challenge, whicf
resembled the defunct "Brain Battle" offered the
team S500 scholarships and an invitation to attenc
the National Competition in Columbus, Ohio. The
team, made up of Captain Dave George - 12.
Roger Cline - 12, Jessica Herrera - 11, Ryan
Vurlicer - 11, and alternate Todd Colletti -12, was
under the direction of Charlene Commings.
On a wider scale, the Academic Decathlon team
placed fourth in district competition. The event con-
sisted of academic measurement in the area of
science, math, history, art, economics, and fine arts.
The competition also has to write an essay, give a
prepared speech, and endure an interview. In Super
Quiz, an event the team placed third in, all gathered
in West Brook's gym for a final, nerve-racking ex-
perience, somewhat equivalent to a 'big game' The
team consisted of the Challenge members fexcluding
Roger Clinel along with Robert Black - 11, Minh
Nguyen - 11, and Brett Woodall - 12, George
was the top scoring varsity student. Winning three
golds, two silvers, and one bronze metal. Colletti -
12, a scholastic competitor, won two silver, and two
bronze metals. Woodall - 12, took one silver in
Varsity and Vurlicer - 11, rounded it out with a
bronze in the honors division.
Both teams were a great success, thanks in part to
Mrs. Commings. She spent a great deal of time
working with the students on the competitions and
the results are proof of that. The teams learned
about the Constitution, kangaroos, Michaelangelo,
and the Statue of Liberty's face-lift. Next year, retur-
ning members plan to do even better.

lf you've ever tried to run a computer' program
with a bug in it, or if you've ever made muffins with
salt instead of sugar, then you understand the mean-
ing of the word "precise," In a precise class, every
detail counts, and mistakes can be disasterous.
Partial credit may , be a scape-goat for many
students but some get trapped into classes where
partial credit is unheardof. Some of those classes in-
clude computer math, homemaking, band,
chemistry, and others. Often, a test will include the
dreaded "fill-in-theablankn which causes the students
an acute lapse of memory followed by dizzy spells,
resulting in panic.
"Fill-in-the-blank tests are much harder than multi-
ple choice tests because you have to memorize facts
and figures where as they are already written on the
page on a multiple choice test," states Jean Coley.
Being precise is a very important quality in Com-
puter Math or the program will have bugs. Wally
Hollar, the Journalism Staff's personal Computer
Whiz Kid, admits, "l hate working with computers
sometimes because you have to be extremely exact.
The computer forgives no mistakes." When Wally's
has 'Abugs" he claims that he gets a gun. Mr. Lee's
solution to "Bugs" is to trace through the program
to find the error.
In classes of this sort exactness is necessary for
one to "make the grade." No one wants to taste a
cooking class experiment where there are
discrepanices in the measurements and one out-of-
the-clarinet can ruin a band concert, Precise classes
must be exactly that accurateg precise. One careless
error could be costly. I

84 EMPORARY EACHERS
Temporary Teachers Try
Students take advantage when the boss is gone
Teachers are human, too, and when they
need to take time off to have surgery or
perhaps a baby, someone needs to take their
place. This someone is referred to as the "tem-
"There is no substitute for a real teacher,"
says Liz Lasseigne - 12.
A temporary teacher is different from a
substitute. A substitute is present for a day or
two mainly to babysit the class and give them
the assignment their normal teacher left for
them. A temporary teacher actually teaches
the class herself. She is there for usually six to
eight weeks, writes lesson plans and conducts
the class as if it were her own.
Naturally the temporary teachers must have
some knowledge in the course she is to teach.
Ms. Dominguez had recently graduated from
college with a major in biology when asked to
fill in for Ms. Butler last year. When the lab
assistants were conducting class one day, Mrs.
Dominguez answered a question they could
not. The class was in awe. Substitutes were not
supposed to know the answers. Nonetheless,
Ms. Dominguez became the temporary fill-in
for Ms. Butler, and the class enjoyed her.
LePrecia Fontenot - 11 was impressed
with Ms. Dominguez. f'When Ms. Butler first
left, I thought we were in serious trouble
because there were several substitutes who
didn't teach as well as she did. But when Ms.
Dominguez came into the classroom, I was
relieved. She fell into Ms. Butler's role of
teaching and explained everything real well.
Any one can explain biology, but it takes a
highly qualified person to fill Ms. Butler's
shoes, and Ms. Dominguez did an excellent
Not only the students benefitted, but Ms.
Dominguez gained from this trial experience,
also. She received a position as a biolc
teacher here at T.J. when another teacl

how she felt about the job she replied, "It's l
you're a permanent teacher. I felt that th.

Of course, much of the learning depends
the attitudes of the students. Most classes i
take advantage of a substitute until they lei
she is there to stay.
"Once you've been there one time, they 4

According to Ms. Dominguez, "Stude,

On the flip side of the teacher-student re

recent temporary, Ms. X, seems to have a 1
ficult time with her classes.
Sandra Pettit - 9 remarks, "She has
control over the class."
Several students admitted to eating, a
drinking during class. Even skipping the peri
after the role has been checked.
"I didn't learn anything the last six weeks
school," reflects Matthew Johnson - 9.
Upon arrival, a temporary teacher is p
bably just as scared and nervous, if not mo
as the students. The students should try to hi
her and make her feel as comfortable as po:
ble. When her mind is at rest and her bo
relaxes, a good relationship between her a
the students can be formed.

xllnfortunately only medals are awarded to

X lt is somewhat confusing to people according

journalism student looked over their material
only a day or two in advance. "We really didn't
have much time to practice because we were
working hard on our 8-page paper. All of us
were exceptional writers and I am almost
positive that we all would have placed if we

and did not rehearse it until it was about to per-

but did not place for regionls because as the
judges state uif she would have read over her
material before hand." My downfall was the
time element also. I was tied up with the one-
act play. But, l cannot place all the blame on
that. I just didn't want to make the time in my

Lights, camera, theatre is in action
With U.l.L. One Act competition in sight, the
Jefferson Drama Troupe, under the direction of
Mrs. Catherine Carroll, began work on scenes
from The Girl in the Mirror.
The Girl in the Mirror is based around a
depressed, suicidal teenager, Susan Connors.
Before the play really begins, we learn that
Susan has attempted suicide bg overdosing on
her mother's sleeping pills. usan's mother
comes home early that day only to find her
daughter collapsed on the bathroom floor.
Susan was then rushed to the hospital were

The play action begins with Susan in
'through the course of the play, Susan
comes in contact with a "ghost" who shows
her memories of the past few years. This
"ghost" makes Susan aware of her "tunnel

classes welcome too. Cast members were ner-
vous, but with encouragement from Grace
Hartzel, players were able to make it. On the
following Friday night, the play was performed
for parents and interested citizens.
The next Tuesday, the play was taken to
competition at Port Neches-Grove High
School. The performance ran virtually flawless.
At the awards banquet, Kathy Stockton receiv-
ed an Honorable Mention, while Laurelle
Flethke and Christine Barton received All-Star
Cast. As a whole, the performance was alter-
nate to advance to regionals. The players
slightly disappointed but they felt that they
have accomplished more by helping teenagers
understand suicide than they ever could - no
matter how many honors they could have won.

Students travel to see and discover
When entering the Welder Wildlife Flefuge,
McDonald's and busy highways are left
behind. There is just open land for the protec-
tion of free animals and wildlife.
Our guide, Bryan Keyley, first brought us into
the We der Museum. It isn't vert! large, but con-
tains a variety of information. isplays are set
up containing information on albinism in
animals. ln glass cases there are albino
gophers, rattlesnakes, mourning doves, and
lizards. There are also displays of Canadian
Geese, armadillos, shrews. and mollusks of
After viewing the museum, the group
entered another room for a brief history of the
Welder family and their refuge. A ew in-
teresting facts that are usually taken for
granted were learned. For example the fact
that buzzards do not eat the rotten flesh of
dead animals but rather the vulture. You see,
the buzzard could not possibly eat the Flesh
off dead animals because the feathers on his
head would become infected and would even-
tually kill him. On the other hand, the vulture
has no feathers around his head for just that
Bryan assigned various jobs to the students
such as dung diggers, which consists of digg-
ing through cowpatties in search of dung
beetles. He also chose Katrina Shaw to be his
snake master. Because of Katrina's fear of
snakes she was overwhelmingly miserable un-
til relieved on the job.
After seeing a film, we loaded on a bus for
the first tour of the refuge. Many beautiful
wildflowers of Texas were seen such as,
bluebonnets, Indian paint brushes, and purple
ficilia just to name a few. The most abundant of
the mammals are herds of fat and healthy cat-
tle. On the refuge live numerous white-tail
deer, javalina, which is a wild pig, wild turkeys
and rare 'cattle egrets. After Yianis and
"Dougie Fresh" dug through numerous piles of
manure, a beautiful beete was successfully
found. One of the most interesting finds of the
field studies was a swarm of bees surroundir
their queen. Some of the students actual
touched the mass of insects.
Later, traps were set to capture samples
rodents found in the area. The day of stun
was completed around 8:30 pm when tl
students loaded on a bus, hooked up a l
beam and went spotlighting. The wildlife is ve
active at night, therefore, many deer, rabbit
and raccoons were spotted.
Bedtime came quickly and "Farmer Bez
Vincent" was the head "fire man." Unfc

temperature fell to below 30 degree

Every year people pick up their annual, look at them and
reminisce, without even giving a thought to the work that
went into creating it. The staff begins working on the book
in the summer before the year even begins. Their work con-
tinues throughout the year on a constant pace with hectic
assignments and deadlines.
One might ask why does a group of students choose to
put out all of the work that is required. The answer is quite
simple, to record our school lives, so that as we grow older
we can look back with fondness at a simpler time in our
lives, our teenage years.
Afterall, when reunion time rolls around, annuals
become a priceless commodity. One could say that at a
reunion, annuals are an essential element. Afterall,

Students get on the job experience at
Stilwell Technical Center
A sure way to get the jump on the job
market is to have previous job experience. For
this, Stilwell Technical Center is just the place
to start. Stilwell offers training experience in
"By going to Stilwell, a person can attain ex-
perience in a certain field-experience other
people do not have," says Sean Nance - 12,

students "Have a better chance of getting a
jobfl says Paul Blanchard - 12, lmajor
lf the students choose to go to college after
Stilwell they will have a head start in a
technical program, such as that at Lamar in
Port Arthur. Also, if the students need to sup-
port themselves through college, the previous
training will enable them to get a job.
Stilwell programs last for two years. During
the first year students are introduced to the
field of their interest. They are taught in the
classroom and the following year they put their
knowledge into practice. For example, a junior
in vocational office education learns how to
operate equipment such as printers and copiers

As seniors, these students use their
knowledge and go to work. Says Sandy
Lambert - 12, HThis class has helped me and
prepared me to become a secretary through
the "hands on" experience and training. I have
learned how to operate all of the machines.
Students of Stilwell get this special "on the
job" training in appliance, diesel mechanics,
auto mechanics, repair, drafting, welding,
machine, shop training and in health occupa-
tion. Not only do cosmetology students get ex-
perience, but they also get their license after
their 1,500 hours of practice and after they
pass their test.
Students who have attended Stilwell all have
a knowledge that other students do not have.
This course offers experience plus the
knowledge of knowing how to perform the job
and with their experience they have a better

Tradition and Innovation Revamp Spirit
Work and Dedication Pay Uff
When September comes and youlve got to
come back to school from a summer of party-
ing, everyone has to admit that school spirit is
the last thing on your mind. It takes the first
pep rally or football game to really get your
blood pumping and your adrenaline flowing,
and suddenly as you hear the fightsong for the
first time since last year, school spirit is born.
The band works hard to achieve that sound
that gives you goosebumps on Friday nights
and between the playing and the marching, it's
practically a full time job. "During marching
season we practice until about five o'clock in
the evening, but it's worth it, come contest."
Seth Dugan - 11.
Doubletiming might not look hard, but ask
any Hussar who's ever marched, and if you tell
her it looks easy, well she'll probably laugh in
your face. lt takes an average of two months
out of the summer and two hours a day during
the week to get that seemingly, "easy"
maneuver down well enough to perform it on
Friday nights. "It,takes a lot of time and hard
work to learn a maneuver, but it is definitely
worth it when you hear the fans clap and cheer
you on during performance," Cara Carson -
If doubletiming isn't quite your style, then
just focus your eyes on the flashing gold hat
and over lays of the swingsters as they dance
onto the field to the nights entertainment. If
dancing for hundreds under glaring stadium
lights look glamorous, just ask any Swingster
how many grueling hours of practice it takes to
get there. Any one of them will tell you that it
isn't what it's cracked up to be. Like the
Hussars the Swingsters start coming at the first
of July, and dance all day, five 'days a week un-
til they get it right. However, looking at the end
result on Friday nights almost makes it all seem

would never make his traditional appearance
on the field. Also, they're very helpful to the

posters for the field.
Last but not least, what football game would
be complete without the cheerleaders there to
raise the spirit of the audience? The
cheerleaders play an important part in the Fri-
day night festivities. What football player
wouIdn't be inspired by the sight of a pretty girl
in a short skirt jumping up and down and wav-
ing a pair of pom-pons? On the serious side, the
cheerleaders also put in a lot of hard work,

in the summer as the Hussars, Band, and Sw-

attitudes and having doors slammed in their
faces, they raised about 3600.

for the Good Sportsmanship League with the
results being: Scott Jackson - 11, President

' Congress is a success
Dear Friends and Faculty,
As my term as student body president comes
to a close, I would like to reflect on an extraor-
dinary year. When Danielle Moore - 12,
Carla Erickson - 12, and I picked up the reins
of the 1986-87 Student Body Congress, our im-
mediate task was to elect a Representative-Ab
Large. After three meetings we added John
Black - 9, to the list of all-school officers for
1986-87 Congress was now ready to roll.
if MINNESOTA FATS - Faithful sponsor Mr. Kindell
tries to show off his pool playing skills at the
Christmas party. By the way, he missed the shot.
Congress has traditionally been a civic
organizations, its function, Alto better serve the
students of TJ as well as the surrounding com-
munity." I am proud to say this year's Con-
gress has lived up that tradition. During
Homecoming Week, Vice President Moore and
the rest of Congress organized a Pass, Punt,
Kick, Contest for senior girls. We also served
as ushers and ticket-takers at the Drama Club's
production of Dracula. The Musical?
However, there is one project that Congress
took on of which I am particulary proud. Our
Hughen School Collection was a big success.
We raised approximately S600 to purchase
two printers that will help nonverbal students
communicate. I would like to thank Mr. God-
win, the senior counselor, who was a good
sport during the Counselor Contest.
This year, I had the district honor of co-
working with our sponsor, Mr. Robert Kindell.
He has inspired and influenced me. Within Mr.
Kindell lies the true meaning of student govern-
ment, "service and dedication." He is always
busy working either this or that, but when I had
a new idea, or I just needed someone to talk to,
he made time to listen. For this I call Mr.
Kindell an advisor, a sponsor but most of all a
In closing, I would like to thank each member
of Congress and the entire students of Thomas
Jefferson. I have enjoyed serving you this year
and thanks for your support.

Swingster Follies a Success
Disney Characters Come to Life
Everyone thinks of the Swingsters as the
long-stepping, high-kicking military drill team
that dances only at Friday night football games.
Not only are they "drill team dancers," almost
every girl on the team has taken dance lessons
for special techniques. Trying to go from a
line-dance to a stage performed jazz dance,
takes a lot of work. This makes the Swingsters
Follies, even more fun for the audience.
The theme was "Disney: Past-Present-
Future - Epcot." The crowds of kids were full
of excitement to see the characters: Mickey

It's Time to Red on the Rise
Sunburn, Sweat, Pain Pay Off
A lot of hard work goes into perfecting
the performances of the Red Hussar
Drum and Bugle Corps. Two months of
summer vacation and daily after school
practices go into making the Friday night
performances work. "lt seems like I spent
my entire summer at school for practice,
while my friends were at home. It's a lot of
hard work and takes up a lot of time but
it's worth it when I hear the crowds ap-
plaud the corps," says assistant snare
sergeantg Cara Carson - 11.
Being the only corps in the state to
perfect and use the double-time step, the
Hussars flash past the crowds taking 360
steps a minute. This feat is not as simple
as the girls make it lookg rather, it is one of
many difficult accomplishments. "I
thought double-timing was simply just run-
ning, but it's a lot harder than most people
think," said Marsie Richards - 12.
Each member must pass a series of

tests including posture, rhythm and coor-
dination, memory, marching, and music
before acceptance into the corps. After
acceptance, all the worries aren't over yet,
they're merely just beginning. Now each
member must spend time learning music,
marching, and the various rules of the
corps, while still concentrating on their
schoolwork. "lt was hard at first to
remember so many songs and still deal
with passing, but I dealt with it because I
felt it was realg worth it," says Lahoma
Jefferson - 1 . Even after the worries,
the pleasures will always be remembered.
"I will always cherish the memories of be-
ing a Hussar for the past three years, and
I'lI never forget the honor of being a Drum
Major for a corps which worked hard for a
great maneuver," says Drum Major Rox-
anne Balsamo -12.

A Beary Merry Christmas
Seniors Sponsor Winter Dance
Soon after football season, the senior
Hussars begin to plan their traditional winter
dance. Senior meetings become an everyday
occurrence during eighth period. Most of the
juniors enjoyed this time since they didn't have
anything to do. "We mostly just sat around do-
ing homework and telling the latest gossip
about everyone." said Adela Solis -11.
The seniors wanted to use an idea different
from the usual winter themes. After many
themes had been considered, the choice was
finally made, A BEARY CHRISTMAS. "The
theme for this year's Hussar Ball was cute. lt
sort of broke the monotomy of the same old
winter themes, and was very well done and put
together," said Laurie Porras - 12.
The ball was held on December 20, in the
school cafeteria. The tables and walls were
decorated with teddy bears and candels, and
the backdrop consisted of a fireplace and a
Christmas tree. Each couple came in and took
their turns taking pictures and dancing. There
were refreshments set aside for those guys
who had the "munchies." "Hussar Ball just
wasn't the same this year. No one stayed at
the dance and there was nothing to do or any
place to go afterwards. To me, it was kind of
boring: but, my date was very fun," said
Michelle Hilton -12.
The announcement of Ideal Hussar and
Escort were finally made. They were Shannon
Huebel - 12 and Jeff Rutherford - 12. "Be-
ing named ldeal Hussar was great! I can't
describe the pride in being choosen by your
peers to represent the corps," said Ideal
Hussar, Shannon Hubel - 12. Each senior
then took their turn under the mistletoe, and
the night ended.

Many of the boys had to struggle to keep

This has been a very memorable time

hard to keep "Big Buzz" soaring at the
games, but it was worth all the work. Each
boy had to strive to keep his grades in
order to keep the privilege of wearing the
Texan uniform. Lucian Adams - 12

twice a day.
Both JV and varsity squads attended Sam
Houston State University for camp. "At 102
degrees everyday, traveling up and down hills,

work," said Mary Lovelace - 10. Varsity

Posters, Floats, Notes
More to Heralds Than Homecoming
They met before school, after school
and even skipped cartoons or sleep-ins
on Saturday mornings to get their work

Harold did not start the organization and
that there was a lot more to Heralds than
Homecoming. "This year we have really

Their year began with the planning of
the Homecomincg Dance. They met several
Saturdays at ara Carson s house to
make crepe paper flowers, assemble
baskets to put them in, and make signs to
announce the dance. - "lt was rough
'gletting up early sometimes, but
omecoming ended up being really suc-
cessful," said Lauren Stevens - 11.
Posters were made to hand in the
hallways and at games to promote school
spirit. They also participated in the
Homecoming activities. Mrs. Dominguez,
one of their sponsors, let them decorate
her husband's truck to enter in the parade.
After huffing and puffing to blow up
balloons, theiy attached them to the grill of
the truck an each side was covered with
a sign reading "Jackets 413' They also
completed the laborious task of braiding
crepe paper to finish their decorating.
However, their work was not finished
after football season. American Education

It is cold, maybe raining, 9 am. A small

they carry the paper to the truck and toss
it in the back. This goes on for two-and-a-
This scene is typical of the Ecology Club
paper drive. What is it about that makes
people dedicated enough to return once a
month? One hundred pounds of paper br-
ings only 75G, yet the Ecology Club col-
lects about S55 a month. That means they
collect 3 to 4 tons of paper a month.
Suenda Clewis - 11 says, "lt's a lot of
hard work, but it pays off. We donate the
money to worthwhile organizations." But
the real reason students repeatedly come
is, Alex King - 11 says, "lt's fun to see
the people, and the doughnuts are great."
As of February, the Ecology Club had
collected 3361.503 that's a lot o paper.
There were only six people participating
besides the sponsors.
Miss Smith, sponsor, has noticed the
deadline, "Fifteen years ago we had a
huge club full of students concerned
about the fate of our environment. Along

This year DECA began with a bang. For
Homecoming Week, DECA had the annual
dunking booth and jelly bean guessing
contest. DECA also entered a float in the
Homecoming Parade and the CavOlLeade
Parade. They had their Christmas party at
Arthur's where they were served a
seafood buffet. ln additon DECA officers
decorated Mr. Paul's office in appreciation
for being such a terrific advisor.
In the month of February, five DECA
members traveled to Clear Lake to com-
pete in the Area Ill competition. Wayne
Bellaire and Josefina Marroquin com-
peted in General Merchandising and Floyd
Dalfrey competed in Enterpreneurship.
Gwen received a Competency Award.
Stephanie White wrote a manual on Free
Enterprise and placed first. Floyd Dalfrey
also wrote a manual on Entrepreneurship
and placed third. .
In March, Steph White, Floyd Dalfrey,
and Robert O'Bryant entered their
manuals on state level competition.
Roberts manual was on General Mer-
chandising and Marketing Research.
Josefina Marroquin also traveled to
Corpus Christi with the DECA group as
a voting delegate. Steph White placed
first on State level and advanced to Na-
tionals in May.
Nationals were held in "jazzy" New
Orleans. DECA members from all over
the nation enjoyed touring the French
Quarter and dining in fine restaurants
such as Pat O'Brien's.
It has been a successful year for
DECA and many more are seen in the
future for the new DECA. So even
though the name has changed the
group is still number one.

Students Learn What to Expect
Whether it is food service, child care or
fashions, one needs to skills in getting and
keeping a job. Home Economic ooperative
Education is the school-work program which
allows students to do these things and more
while receiving three credits. HECE students
attend school half a day and then go to work. "I
feel that it's benefiting working," says Samuel
Haley - 12.
Students work on improving their skills in
budgeting, banking, figuring income taxes,
writing job applications, interviews, and mak-
ing resumes. "The skills we learn are ones that
Ecu need, like math and English," states
esiree Taylor - 12. While Darnetta Dumas
- 12 feels, "I have learned what to expect."
The students then put their skills to work
when they go to their training stations tplace of
employmentl and work for an average of 15
hours a week with Saturdays and Sundays op-
tional. Students make minimum wage or
"It helps me gain responsibility and save for
college," replied Cliff Veazey - 12. Troy Her-
man - 11 sums it up as, " ou earn whi e you
learn." Students are graded on dependability,
cooperation, appearance, interest and ability to
get along with people. "I learn how to handle
situations and fundamentals of the working
world," says Melissa Thornell-12.
In addition to classwork and employment,
HECE students participate in Homecoming ac-
tivities and the Great American Smokeout. Dur-
ing the year, students work on self-
improvement project, "Power of One." Some
try to manage money better while others try to
lose weight. "It tPower of Onej will help me feel
better about myself," responds Nancy Delino
- 12, Jeff Flan in - 12 has this to say about
HECE, "The only thing wrong with HECE is
everyone doesn't get a chance to join."

before he goes to his HECE class. "I like working at

Homemakers Are in the Mix
Variety of Activities Fill Year
The Future Homemakers of America is
an organization made up of home
economics students. Their main goal is to
promote family life, in fact, all of their ac-
tivities are family orientated.
"Throughout the year, FHA has in-
dividual projects for their own growth,"
comments Mrs. Dartez, a home
economics teacher. Their activities range
from the collecting for cystic fybrosis to
Christmas and spring socials. However,
WHAT SORT OF GOODY ARE Y'ALL CREATING?
- Emily Walker - ll, Crystal Boudreaux - 12,
and Floyd Young - ll. Could it be biscuits?
Angela Roberts - 11, favorite event is the
national Great American Smoke Out in
November 19. She shares the thoughts of
other FHA students, "Life is more impor-
tant than a cigarette butt."
Every year on a local level they compete
with others in the Beaumont Fair and "Put
up an exhibit relating to FHA and home
economics." iCarlise Chariot - 121. They
claimed the blue ribbon for their great
work. Another award won was the trophy
for American Education Week. Flenee
Washington - 12, the Vice President for
the club subs up the group's attitude.
"Home economics helps the student be
prepared for life after high school. This
course should be required."
FHA is an organization that meets not
only for fun, but to learn. The skills that are
taught in FHA can help form the basis of a
secure future, family life.

Creative Expressive, Explosive
Drama Strives to Be Unique M 1
How many times has your mother told
you "Just because they are doing it,
doesn't mean that you have to!?" Does
this mean that your mother wants you to
be different, or do you dare to be dif-
ferent? If so, the drama club is for you!
A variety of people are attracted to their
group. Stereotypically, the theatre is
known as the "absurd and different."
Most of the time the extremists are at-
tracted to the theatre - the highly
sophisticated and the odd balls. Why.
Because the drama club allows its
members to express their creativity open-
ly and without fear of censure. As
tephanie Jones - 11, Vice President
says, "lt lets a little of me come out."
Not only are there a variety of people in
the group, but they do a melody of things.
Throughout the year the club costumed
for parades, performed on stage for
school, donated time to children's
spookhouses, dressed up for Homecom-
ing, and competed at festivals.
They enjoy dressing up for various
events lsuch as Homecomirtgl, and travel-
ing to places to the most. Says Monica
Parker - 9, "My favorite day was 60's. I
thought we looked neat with our short
skirts and square-heel boots." The troupe
loves to travel because in doing so, they
can expand their knowledge of the world
and people. Grace Hartzel - 10, explains
"Meeting lots of other Thespians from
around t e state was not only fun and ex-
citing, but also a learning experience."
The group likes to known as having the
quality of open-mindedness. Says Mrs.
Robert Chasson, why are you
continously acting silly? You
aren't even on stage asks
drama sponsor, Mrs. Carroll.
ar X L If
Carroll, "We won't turn anyone aw:
They are welcome here." And they 2
welcome. Laurell Ftethke - 12, Preside
of the troupe says, "We aren't just a gro
- but a family." Amy Morgan - '
Grace Hartzel - 10, and Christine Bart
- 10, chime in "lt's our second home."
The drama club is a unique group. If y
like to be different and don't want to be l
dinary, the drama club is for you!

While doing this section,
We discovered people are
Caught in the times:
The past and the present-
Soon to be Caught in the future.
As we combed the country
And beat the bushes,
We came up with
The downbeats, and
Mainly the offbeats of
The 1986-87 school year -
Not to mention
The outtakes and the retakes,
The quips and the quirks,
The queries and the quibbles
That made the year,
lf not better,
At least different.
And what a year it was!

If you have seen a movie lately, it probably keeps
with the nation's trend of romanticism, as with longer
hair and shorter hemlines. Movies being produced
still deal with controversial subjects, but show a
strong maleffemale relationship. Two movies follow-
ing this pattern are Top Gun and Little Shop of Hor
rors Grace Hartzel 10 says I like Top Gun
because the way they portrayed relationships bet

was give and take in both characters

Since this page is about music you probably assume I am going to write about ar
tlsts singles and albums Well I m not This article is going to deal more with music
videos than artists singles and albums
Music video seems to be the wave of music that is really hot rlght now Amy
Morgan thinks Music videos although many are a cliche of themselves continue to
be powerful force in the trend setting process of teen age life Now I realize that
some people and critics call music video a trend however their theories are not
proving true When music video became really popular with the birth of MTV
everyone was hyped about lt As people got accumstomed to the Idea It died down a
little and this has caused the critics to condemn the videos Now music video IS a
common place as radios and talking movies which were also called passing trends
Music video artists have been
more creative than the movie In
dustry Many new conventions
have been established in the film
ing lndustry that the movie world
had never thought about or ever
needed ID movies Many video s
are simple some have story
line s some use old conventions
and others use ultra modern
techniques to capture audience
attention All these methods are
used to make a song 3 D in a per
sons mind I thunk music video on
the whole can be mundane but
many are really exceptional If you
are into pop music they can keep
you up with the music scene but if
you are into alternative music
its a bit of a let down because
most music video shows dont
give them an play except at really
obscure time slots
In general music video IS a

05 Do You
Xb Know the
5 c Language?
Some teen-agers like to confuse their elders by using words
which mean one thing to the user, and another to the listener. This
is because different age groups, as well as different groups of peo-
ple have different slang. A teen might say a middle-aged person is
"spaced" of "a kook," while the older person might feel the
younger person has "holes in his head." This can be fun at times,
insulting at others. A majority of slang is known by a vast group of
people, although slang changes drastically and quickly. Many peo-
ple have difficulty keeping up with the changes and determining
what slang is, and what is not. Christine Barton - 10, says, "For
me, slang is more complicated than the English language. I don't
know whether it's better to be cool or hot! And I really don't know
whether it's good to be bad, or bad to be good?"
Many people do not like the use of slang. Tony Trahan - 12,
says "I think you should try to break the habit of using slang,
because you are not using proper English." Slang can be con-
sidered an inferior language, used by those who are careless and
lazy thinking. Sometimes this is assumed because slang frequently
occurs in informal situations where grammatical errors and pro-
fanity accompany it.
Slang can be misused and overused. A slang term becomes
tiresome if repeated too often. Slang is also inappropriate for cer-
tain uses, such as formal speeches and schoolwork. "I think slang
is okay when used in the proper places, such as hanging out with
friends, or being with that special someone, but not when you're in
places like church or other formal social gatherings," says Anita
Rideau - 12. However, reasonable slang promotes lively speaking
and writing. Charles Roccoforte says, "I think slang is an im-
proper use of English, but most people feel better using it because it
gives' them their own language." Slang is an important part offany
language and helps keep the language fresh and alive. A small
listing of some slang is provided below:
CLEAN - really nice, as in clothing TIRED - bad looking
MESSY - person who spreads many rumors WIRED - excited
CHILL - relax, take it easy BOX - portable radio
SCHMOOZING - talking socially PSYCHE - fooled you

"The cost of living, no matter
where you live or what your
financial situation, is getting a
little ridiculous. It's not the
economics fault, nor the con-
sumer'sg it's the idea of supply
and demand. As time goes on
people have the need for more
frivolous things and not the
bare necessities. This is where
the idea of supply and demand
comes into effect. When the pro-
duct is in demand, the price
begins to increase. It's a vicious
cycle that unfortunately has no
loopholes. As the years go on,
prices will increase."
Stephanie Jones - 1
Have You Read . . .
The reading of books at Thomas Jefferson, and I am
sure at high schools around the nation, are varied. Many
people feel the same as Christine Barton - 10, above
reading. "Are you kidding? Harlequin Romance once a
week!" Amy Morgan - 10, has a reply that I know the
English department will like, "I love reading! It's one of
the more interesting pastimes I have. Anything that has
a plot, I'll read." Many other students did not have the
same response. Some people said they will read things
that are not required, like Tracey Postula - 12. "I
really don't have that much time during the school year
to read for pleasure, therefore I often have to wait until
summer rolls around to enjoy a good book. I like reading
something that is not required. I don't like the restricted
feeling of having to read something." Some students will
not read anything that is not required. "No, I don't read
books outside of English, but I do enjoy reading," said
Reginald Reed - 12.
Not all people read simply for pleasure or English.
Christine Ramirez - 12 says, "I enjoy reading books
. . . usually to learn something interesting, or for infor-
mation" No matter what you read, whether it is cereal
boxes or 800-page novels, it is always a good source of
entertainment and learning. So read, read, read . . .
Have you noticed an exceptional amount of silver ac-
cessories on people this year? Maybe high top sneakers,
lace trim and logo shirts ii.e. coke-a-colai. Most every guy
seemed to get a Uflattop hair cut. These are just a fewrof
the fads that are around today. Pads are something stylish
that everyone picks up, not only fashionable people - but
everybody. lt doesn't have to be justclothing, but jewelry,
accessories, hairstyles, glasses, i watches, pastimes,
types of entertainmentjand their gadgets.
Some fads havernjct only been all the craze, but also
practical and usefulgsuch as hats and sunglasses, to,
blockithe sun. Also high top sneakers to help weak ankles. s
Otherifads are just something to do or weafrlike going to
waterparks or wearing lace trim. T
Logo shirts were a big fad this year.-Most everyone
started out the school year, wearing Corona beer shirts.
That ceased with a ruliingyinrithe dress code. The coke-a-
cola logo shirts were notlruled out, so they were worn
Collarsioff all descriptions came into style as well. The
collars were one ofthe most popular fads. Girls put them
over plain dresses with no collars, or overgpiain neck
sweaters. There were other kinds of collars, SOiTle with
beads and rhinestones attachedgfor decoration, and some
made out of hancikerchiefs. 4 riii T
Rhinestones were .very popular on their own account,
being stuck orpinned on everything for the past year.
g Other accessories that have become fads are
sometimes considered necessities. These include "pre'pi'r'
or "attitude" glasses. People who really needed glasses
picked up on this style of frame first,gthen other people
started buying framesand wearinglthemi with no lense in
the frame. b -'
Other necessitiesjthat have caught onare Rolex, Gucci,
Seiko and Swatchgwatches. All oft ese watches are not of
thesame caliber of course, but everyone seems to likef

Although we all weren't blessed with
autiful nails, there is something now
at can change the appearance of your
ils. Thickness and length is of the
stomers choice, but un ortunately the
lces are not. These special nails range
prices from 25 dollars to 55 dollars
pending on the shop and the location of
is shop you go into. Here in Port Arthur it
called a sale if you can get sculptured
.ils for less than 325, but in the larger
ies, such as Dallas and Houston places
lead in the fashion world a sale for them
pruld be in the bracket of 5635.
here are many good things about hav-
g these nails put on. They accent your
inds and make them more feminine.
so, if you are a very active person then
lu can surely bet that investing your
oney in a good set of nails would be to
iur advantage. For example, if you are
imeone who has their hands in a lot of
ater through the day, then you have
tnessed how flimsy and brittle your nails
.n be. The sculptured nails wil not only
rengthen them against water, but as fun-
' as it sounds they don't leak.
Although these new nails have an
'erall good reputation, they do have
+me bad qualities. These nails are
llxsically glued to your original nail and
en they come off layers of your original
ils will come off with it. Although it may
t be seen by the naked eye you can feel
vy bridges indented in your real nails
g, V yu V'
after you remove the sculpts. Another
more serious aspect that should be con-
sidered before plunging into this fad is
that if these nails are not applied correctly,
you run the risk of infections and fungis
setting in. If the operator does not fill in all
cracks this leaves an opening for moisture
to get through. When this happens
bacteria starts to grow and it isn't long
before you see a blue green growth under
your nail. The fightening thing is that this
could cause permanent damage to the cell
which would cause them from growing
The choice of the scupltured nails is up
to the customer. This new invention
relates a lot to clothes. You can look at an
outfit that someone is wearing and love it
but when you go into the store to try it on
you realize that this outfit isn't you. Well
these nails aren't for everyone some will
be able to wear them and others won't.
The most important factor is to try them
and see just how natural they look on you.
Of they turn out lumpy and gaudy then
your best bet would be to live without
them. Everybody's nails grow different,
therefore the appearance with the
sculptured nails on will vary. With all the
facts gathered together nothing is more
important than how bad you really want
this amazing new trend.

Trevino - 12 extends her beautiful natural nails to

After being in school for so long, seniors are
finally "getting out" to be on their own.
Bernard Goudeau - 12 says, "l'm ready to
graduate, but after we do I know we'll lose our
securities and most'of our friends when we
leave for college."
Looking back, there were times when
everything was so difficult, and you never

maybe even their families too.

At the crack of dawn
Believe it or not, some students are
Rriiiiiiing! The alarm goes off and eyes slowly
open. All over town people are coming alive
eyelids are coming unglued, coffee is pouring
and showers are running. People are up and on
the move, going to school or work, or in Allison

The alarm clock always goes off, but do the
students always get up? Not exactly, Kevin
Jones - 12 says, "At 5 I'm still
dreaming about my lady," This is
what the snooze button is for.
Some students can "snooze"
their way to being late for school.
And then there are those peo-
ple who just barely make it to school. The ones
who get up at 7:00 and expect to get it all
together before 7:50, including the shower, the
breakfast, and the long walk up the parking lot.
These are the people you always see running
to get to first period or standing in line at the at-
tendance office because they didn't quite make
it in time. They're always running to get ready.

telling me in her sweet little voice, "Rise-n-

Ward are you there?"
It seems like up 'n at 'em is the hardest part
of the morning for most people. The prospect
of getting out of a warm bed to face another
day of school just doesn't thrill most people but
everyone knows it has to be done. If students
expect to pass their classes and
graduate, they realize that
they've got to come to school,
even though it's not usually what
they want to do. Despite snooze
buttons, nodding over coffee and
at the wheel most students make
it on time, though barely.
lt takes a lot of effort to get up and moving in
the morning. Between sleeping late and dragg-
ing your feet, it's really a wonder, some
students get to school at all, but somehow they
always manage to.
With all the rousing and running, you often
forget what you're running for. - Sarah Silva
I-Iit the snooze button
Students find it hard to drag themselves out of best in the morning
Finally, you're up and out of bed. You've convinc-
ed yourself not to kill your alarm clock. Your eyelids
are unglued, and you're going to make it to school
on time', if you decide to go. Some students are still
sitting at home at 7:15 wondering if they're coming
to school at all. "At 7:15 I'm sitting in my recliner
drinking coffee," says Beau Vincent - 12. Some
students can't survive the day with just coffee. Some
feel the need for good, nourishing junk food. Trong
Tran - says, "About 7:15 I open up
the refrigerator, get out a pizza and
put it in the oven for 3 minutes." : ::
Some students find a quick trip to the
home at 7:15 to catch that dreary old bus." Most
students, once past that dreaded "freshman syn-
drome," usually drive to school, provided they've
got a car. James Wilson - 11 says, UI begin the day
with the electric sound of the 60's as I drive into the
student parking lot."
For those students who get to school at a
reasonably early time, the parking lot is the perfect
place to catch up on everything. Dorothy Williams

What's happening or what's going to
store in the mornings a lot more con-
venient than cooking at home, and a
lot quicker, too.
Getting to school is another thing. Having your
parents bring you to school is so embarrassing for
some students, while others don't really care. Amy
Morgan - 10 says, "Yes, my parents bring me to
school, but I don't find it embarrassing because I
usually get here too late to be seen by anyone."
Some students would rather walk or catch a ride
from a friend than let their parents bring them to
school. Michelle Robinson - 11 says, "I leave my

says Vicki Rackel - 12. Gossip plays an important
part of school life. Some people feel that they just
can't start the day without a good solid dose of
gossip or at least some juicy tidbits. Even though it's
hard to get to school on time, students always find a
way, even if they have to walk, because there is
always something going on there.

It's another one of those days. You woke up
late and you only had five minutes to get to
school. Perhaps your car wouldn't start, or maybe
you were just in one of those moods. Whatever
your excuse is we all have our setbacks that slow
us down. John Blumstein - 12 finds no need to
make excuses, "I simply never get anything ac-

may have a little trouble getting a good start, a
few students really need to be alert

When second period rolls around, most
students are busily working in their academic
classes, Students who are career bound,
however, are away from their home school half
a day getting a taste of the "real world." These
students have an option of either taking a job
or enrolling in a vocational school, such as
Stilwell Technical Center or Summit.
"lt's fun and exciting going to Stilwell in the
morning. While most of my
friends are at their home schools
hands-on experience to better
shop second period and I really think it is fun.
We learn to work on skills with our hands and
it's an easy class where you can get an A with
your hands and not your headf'
Electives that are added to the day are look-
ed to as more educational than most. Colleen
Fitzpatrick - 12 says, "I have home furnishing
second period and I really learn a lot. We learn
how to design a house that will be attractive.
They also teach us to decorate a
house that will be attractive. I'm
glad that I took this course
because when I get my own
doing class work, I'm busy getting prepare me for my career,"
claims Joy Antione - 12. Regret-
ting the decision that she made, Nan Balzerson
- 12 says, "I wish I would have enrolled in
Stilwell. l want to work in my morning classes
such as second period. My electives are of no
importance to my future."
In some cases second period is a class of im-
portance, not only because of their value to the
student, but also some are known for being fun.
Ronnie Beavers - 12, claims "I have wood
home, I will be able to design it
tastefully and stylishly."
For those who enjoy their second period
class, and even for those who dislike theirs, you
can bet that it will help you in some way. Those
students that have chosen to stay enrolled in
their home school along with those who have
taken a half-day program have found a short-
cut to their career.

SHERMAN-THOMAS ENIOR 1
You ' re over the hump
3rd marks the halfway pont of a long day for most of us
Although the first two periods may not be exciting,
when third period comes around, at least students tend
to be a little more awake. The fact that they have
another class to attend before lunch discourages many
students, but they are aware that they are approaching
the half-way mark of the day.
Even knowing this, some still suffer the pain of put-
ting up with third period. Dwight Dickson - 9, seems
to be one who dreads third period, "I have gym for my
third class and there's nothing interesting about it. All
we do is play with a basketball and sit."
However, for some students it's real-
ly a joy to go to third period, especially
if you have the right attitude about it. "I
actually like going to third period. l
wake up session so that students can snap to the rest of
their day. Jennifer Knippel - 11 however, appears to
need no preparations for third period, "I walk into class
each day hoping that today will be easier than yester-
day, but trig never is. I like it though because l'm learn-
ing a lot. This class challenges me to test my ability to
learn. This is one of the classes that keeps me going in
Although there are those who have their excuses
about why they may not like third period, sometimes it
goes a lot further than being bored.
Thanh Tan - 10, dislikes her third
class because of how it will relate to her
personal life. "I don't like third period
because l have Drivers Ed. All we do is
have DE and l think it's good because it
teaches you a lot about the real working
world. It gives students a great example as to what life
is like when you are out of high school."
There are many students who attend a half-day pro-
gram. Some, however, do not wait until their third
period is over so they can get back to their home school
and see all their friends.
By the time the clock ticks to 9:55, students have
already adjusted to what their day is like, not to men-
tion their attitudes. The first two classes serve as a
Thinh Ngoc Vu
watch movies, and also we talk a lot.
The only fun part was getting to really
drive during the day. At first I was nervous, but then I
got used to my instructor. I just hope I can practice
more at home.
Some claim to like their third period class, some re-
main neutral and don't care as long as they pass, and
other dread with a passion. Whatever category you fall
under, it comes as a relief to all to be aware that your

sits quietly waiting for the graduation ceremony to she receives her diploma after thirteen long

the Suspense Builds
Thousands of people gather in the foot-
ball stands. In a secluded area, the crowd
focus on a blanket of maroon caps and
gowns. The nervous graduates await their
turn to waltz across the platform and
receive their diplomas.
Before these students can reach this
important turning point in their lives, there
are two things that must be taken care of.
The most embarrassing is probably not
paying off your fines. A graduate must be
sure to pay these or else Mr. Paul will be
coming to take you out of the Line-up. The
second important requirement is to be
sure to pay close attention at rehearsal,
even though it's the most boring two
hours of your life. "Graduation rehearsal
was a waste of time. It was long and bor-
ing. l just wish that Graduation was over."
complains Danny Gordy - 12.
Despite the hard work and boredom,
Tina Gonzales - 12 found rehearsal quite
enjoyable. "lt was really hot and a long
rehearsal, but it was fun to yell while your
classmates walked across the stage. lt's a
shame that we can't do that on Graduation
Thirteen hard trying years are put
behind these students, with plan of begin-
ning a new life. These seniors face a lot of
responsibilities, such as college. Chrissy
Cockrell - 12 says, "I plan to get a sum-
mer job, and in the fall I'm going to go to
Lamar to study Journalism. Hopefully, one
day I can write for a magazine." It is a
tough decision where to go to college,
something that realize a lot of thought.
Randy Thomas - 12 states his decision
rather easily, "I plan to go to college at
Lamar because it is really hard to find a
decent job these days without college ex-
perience." Karen Fabre - 12 also plan to
stay close to home. She says, "I'm going
to attend Lamar during the summer to get
my English courses taken care of, and
from there I'm going to study data
Although it may not be easy going out in
a newworld, it's especially tough if you
have to move away from your family and
friends. Troy Murray - 12 is prepared to
move away if that's what he wishes to do.
I might end up staying around Port Arthur.
My parents said that if I planned to move
to Austin to attend College, they would
pay for half of my expenses. I haven't real-
ly decided what I want to study." Some of
these seniors feel that they need the sum-
mer to get a little fun in before settling
down to their studies again. Jeff Jackson
- 12 is one that needs a break, "I'm go-
ing to move to Dallas to begin my college
studies, but for the summer l'm going to
Austin to relax."
The Senior class of '87 is moving on to
accept challenges that many fear. Leaving
a world with friends and memories is not
easy. The final tears, the sorrow of
sadness, and the last goodbyes, will soon
be washed away with the thrills of being
independently in a new world.

RADUATION -I 61
Ah, life!! It's one great, big bowl of cherries,
right?!? Wrong. At least for the juniors it isn't.
They seem to be the forgotten students who go to
school everyday, get homework and then get sent
home without a cookie.
When the words "responsibility" and
'Lrespect" are mentioned by parents and
teachers, freshmen are always excused because
they have no idea what they mean. Sophomores
are just learning what they mean and the Seniors
really couldn't care less. On the other hand,
Juniors are caught in the middle of things.
However, that is the least of their worries. For
these unfornate juniors, they have to face the
TEAMS and an overload of classes. Back in the
dark ages, when these students were hopeless
freshman they put off classes like Government
and Health until their junior or senior year. These
mistakes finally caught up with them, not to men-
tion all the new course requirements. i'Trig
wouldn't be my main worry, if three maths
weren't required," voiced Robby Hernandez -
11. Some students don't feel the same way, states
Julie Boullion - 11 "I like the new requirements
because it helps set goals for myself."
The junior year is also faced with TEAMS

Obviously the 11th grade has its share of ups
and downs. Wendy Jackson - 11 says, "I've
waited for this year to be treated like a real per-
son." Real person or not, not everyone agrees.
David Amy - 11 contradicts her by saying,
"Students think they're at the top when reaching
11th grade. But, really they don't reach the top
until they're seniors." Never-the-less, everyone
must go through it. Being a junior does have one
sense of security, finally not a kid anymore, but
still not forced to face the world alone.

SLISH! TIME T0 SNOOZE! - Kathy Walker -
can get down to business, sleeping, now that
's had lunch and has gotten his "lil' tummy" full.
Time seems to drag in the classes right after lunch
For most students there is absolutely nothing hap-
pening from 1:00-2:30 except classes which are
usually extremely dull.
In order to kill time, instead of teachers, many
students write notes, sleep, or stare out the window.
"In English, I throw little pieces of paper at people
or stare off in space," says Mark Loupe-12. Some
other people doodle on their shoes. Eric Pierron-10
says, "I just hate to see white shoes, it's like a piece
of canvas waiting to be drawn on." Between drawing
on shoes and throwing paper at people it's a real
wonder anythig ever gets done. Some
students seem to treat school as a
social gathering rather than a
necessary evil. The point that is so an-

coke before rushing to her job at USI. Most students
are in class yawning by this time, if they're not
already asleep. There are several sadistic teachers
who love to have sleepers in their classes, simply
because they enjoy having the bell wake them up
and then seeing them run and scramble to get to
their next class. Finally at 2:30 the bell rings for 8th
period. During transition there is a mad dash to the
lockers. Finally, after working your combination
twice, the locker is opened and books are exchang-
ed. "l hate it when my combination won't work,
because by the time I get to 8th
period l'm late," says Shirley
After pushing out of the locker stall
noying is the fact that these aree
usually the students who are passing,
despite the fact that they are constantly goofing off,
and never appear to be working.
Mrs. Loukas sixth period French ll class is known for
it's "talkers", therefore, very little studying gets ac-
gcomplished. Misty Fields-10 says, "French is wild. It
Eis so hard to do any work in there. Everyone is
gfalways talking not workingf' Brian Vincent-12 and
liAlena Hightower-10, occupy themselves by writing
gall over each other in pen wars. Around 1, An-
itoinette Veltz-12 is munching on a bag of chips and a
you're back in the halls, which is
similiar to a wrestling match. You
never know when you'll be knocked down, tripped,
shoved or hit. "This year it seems like the halls are
more crowded than ever, especially around the
upstairs lockers. "Now that the juniors and seniors
share the same lockers, it's almost impossible to get
anywhere upstairs quickly," says Stephanie
As soon as the bell rings, everything is back to
normal. Only one more hour and then - freedom.

MAN! WHY WON 'T THAT BELL RING? - Jessica Larkins
- 12 glances at her watch for the hundredth time while
waiting for class to end.
H0 HUM! ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER CLASS -- says
Michael Castilla - 10 as he waits for the bell to ring so he
can go home.
Saved by the Bell
It's hard to just hold on last period till the gong sounds.
"Last period? Thank God I made it!" This
seems to be the prevailing sentiment at 2:30 as
students slowly count down the minutes while
they chew on their forbidden gum, or write
their forbidden letters.
8th period is the favorite period of the day
for most students or at least Chrystal Ford -
12 says so, "Eighth period is my favorite
because it's the last class of the day, and I
know once it's over, I can go home and chill.
Going home and "chillin' " seems to be the
average student's favorite pastime lately. And
there's nothing like the thought of a tall glass of
coke to make the minutes fly by.
This is the time when students start doing
their homework lists, thinking about going
home and sleeping, making plans for the rest of
the afternoon, and looking at their watches
every five minutes, "I check my watch from
3:20 on. I'm either constantly checking for
myself or for about nine other people who sit

Stairway to Heaven
Music by Body and Soul filled the cafeteria for a tinselled nite.
The coming of spring fever brings the sun, the
beach, and also the Junior prom. This is a time
of year when girls start praying that their dream
date will ask them to this wonderful event while
the boys are beginning to get cold feet. Unfor-
tunately, going to the prom this year did not
seem to be such a big deal for the juniors of
For many of the students the prom was quite a
disappointment because of the lack of participa-
tion on the student's behalf. Only about 20
couples showed up to the prom this year. All of
them were coming and going at different times.
"I was really disappointed at the number of
students that showed up this year, but I had fun
any way," said Christina Delgadillo - 10.
Although the dance was not such a hit, for-
tunately, that's not the whole fun of prom night.
Getting all dressed up and actually going out on
a real date was very pleasing for some kids,
especially going to dinner. The prom night din-
ner should be placed in a romantic setting at a
candlelit table far away in the corner of the
restaurant. After dinner the date is supposed to
pop the big question, "Would you like dessert?"
But really that question won't be asked once the
gentlemen gets the bill for that wonderful meal.
"I had a great time at Pier 600. It set such a
romantic mood for me and my date," says Bo
Jones - 1 1.
Another big attraction on Prom night were the
after parties held at Robby Muse - 11 and
Paige Umphrey's - 11 houses. These were
places to go after the dance to help keep the
spirits up and the fun happening for the rest of
the night. Most of the kids ended up staying up
all night partying and having fun.
Overall the 1987 Junior Prom was not a
disaster actually it was a lot fun for many
students. Next year there is a rumor that both
Junior and Senior proms will be held together,
hopefully making it a wild and crazy party for
A night to remember.

Sophomore. The most beautiful word in the
world. Especially to someone who has spent
the last year as dirt beneath the feet of mightly
seniors. In other words, isn't it wonderful not to
be a freshman anymore? Just when you knew
you were doomed to die of embarrassment
after walking into a senior English class looking
for Homemaking, along comes your second
year in high school to make things better. Or
worse, or a little of both.
Athough you're no longer at the bottom of
the totem pole, you're not near the top by a
long shot. You've got long years of exams, and
lowliness to go before you reach the top. Little
by little you're catching up. You're walking up
to the fact that nobody pity's a sophomore like

they do a freshmen. No more easy classes and
only 1 or 2 hours of homework a night. Now it's
on to bigger and better things, like biology,
complete with skinning frogs and all.
There is no excuse anymore for being late to
class, because how could you possible by lost in
a school you've gone to for almost a year? Yet
we all know that it happens. ln plain words,
your spending the year waiting to catch up.
And just when you think you've got it made as
an upperclassman at last, look out because
here comes your junior year and it's nine mon-
ths of catching '?'itSl

While some of us
are finishing up on the
practicing fields, or
just starting to stock

there a lucky few
whose afternoons are
all their own. For most
students, the 4 pm

hand, Bobby Teran

Everyone has his
own method of relax-

school. "I usually go
to a friend's house
and hang out there
after school," says Bo
Jones -- 11. Of
course, not everyone
has the same ideas on
how to go about relax-
ing. Some go straight
back to work, like
cats' from 4:30, and
then it's grub down on
some food . . . I like to

So take your pick,
whether it's returning

Life After Homework
Students spend their free time on the job, at night school, and catching Z's.
For some students, 6 pm signals several
different obligations from napping to night
school. Most average families no longer sit
down to a quiet, organized dinner because
of conflicting schedules, so, the kids are left
to get their nourishment the best way they
can. Usually, via McDonald's or Burger King.
Wendell Prater - 12, says,
"On an ordinary night it's a : g
burger or nothing. "However, 5:5 EE
food is not first in the minds of 2:E: :
some students, such as the
small percentage of the stu-
dent body that attend night school. Three
nights a week, an average of 2V2 hours a
night for 12 weeks, night school is just
another obligation for a few, whether they
are trying to make up for that stupid mistake
called Algebra II or adding credits "just in
Richard Gonzalez - 10 says, "I had a
nice teacher, but it really gets boring. I'd pro-
bably sleep if it weren't for the typewriters
making so much noise.
Sleep seems to be a very important sub-
ject for a lot of people these days. Senior
Willie Broussard claims, "on my days off
from night school, I try to snatch a few hours
of much needed sleep."
However, some of this evening time is
spent quite productively, as
Bruce Smith - 11, points out.
"I like to work on stereos, and
other electrical things in my
spare time. I don't get paid,
but I don't mind, because ljust
do it to help out."
Another big helper is David fEdwards -
12, "l'm usually at football practice until late,
because l'm a manager. Whenever I have
night school, though, some of the other guys
fill in for me."
Free time is important to everyone. No
matter how you spend it, by 3 in the after-
noon, your're thanking God you have it to

Library study groups make work
go quicker and easier.
It's 7 at night and the stack of books you
brought home is staring youy in the face. No
TV tonight, it's off to the library for you. when
you finally get settled at your own table and get
your books in order, it seems that everyone
you know has had the same idea:
studying in a "quiet atmosphere."
Wh! people forget things, the square root of
5, an how to conjugate verbs are just a few of
the problems you have to sweat over in that
everlasting round of homework that you can't
get away from. On a normal night, it's not
unusual to have four or five hours
of homework in only two or three

When you've finally gotten to the bottom of
your stack of homework, you can stretch and
relax, ready for a little rest and some serious
gossip. You look around for your friends only
to discover that the library closed hours ago
and you're all alone. - Madely Monk

It's the first day of school and there are
swarms of newcomers staring wide-eyed at
the lockers, halls, teachers, an most of all, the
upperclassmen. It's the first of a year of cat-
ching on for the freshman class. It's their turn
to learn fthe hard wayj the ropes and the rules.
Asking an upperclassman for directions is
the fastest way to get lost in the fog. Roaming
the halls aimlessly may be embarrassing, but it
sure beats walking into the boys' gym ooking
for the Homemaking rooms.
Getting lost is probably every freshman's
worst nightmare, but getting found can be just
as embarrassing, especially when you're
"found" in the wrong class, or worse yet, the
wrong homeroom. he worst sick stomach
you've ever had in your life, is truding the halls
and being lost until you finally find where
you're supposed to be.
Well, you've made it through homeroom and

your first three classes and at last it's lun-
chtime, you've already found the cafeteria, and
now you join the other hordes on their way to
pig out after an exhausting morning. There's
an embarrassing moment when you acciden-
tally carried your tra? into the restroom, but
othenlvise you've ma e it through the hard part
of the day. Now there are only four more
classei to get throughfbtefo-Fe, you can go home
and co apse in ronto t e .
Eighth period and freedom finally comes and
after a minor traffic jam in the parking lot,
you're safely home with your feet propped up

when ou can ush around and misdirect a
freshman to class yourself.

One week before Homecoming, the
freshmen in the band are given a poem,
written by the band seniors, to memorize,
and a beanie to wear to school during
Spirit Week. The freshmen must recite the
poem to any senior when asked, and wear
the beanie to school. If a freshman cannot
recite the poem or is caught not wearing
his beanie - he will be initiated publicly at
the city-wide pep rally. Diapers over the
jeans and lipstick on the face are the tradi-
tional punishments given bythe seniors.

Making the Drag
Cruising has to suffice when there's not enough time for a road trip.
lt's 8 pm, and you're desperately looking
for something to do. Your homework is
done, dinner was hours ago, there is nothing
on TV, and you've called everyone you
know, twice. The logical solution. Running
the roads, of course.
There's nothing like getting into your car
and Just driving around to escape the
bore om blues. Maybe your fascination is

that everyone in your

Yo-Ho , Mr . Telephone
No missed messages with call waiting, answering machines.
There couIdn't be a more boring time
than 9:00 at night. At least that's the way
most teenagers feel. There's always
television, but unless you're into nighttime
soaps, there's really not much to watch.
lt's too early to go to bed, the homework's
done or put off until later,
you've already eaten,
painted your toenails purple,
and walked the dog, twice. 3:32 E 555
So what's left for you to do?
Well, you can always turn to a teenager's
best buddy, the telephone.
Some students are lucky enough to
have call-waiting and the other fancy call-
ing services so that their friends never
have to be annoyed by a busy signal. Trey
Norment - 11 says, "I'm glad I have call
waiting, because, my sister is always on
the phone and without it, I wouldn't ever
Answering machines are an answer to
the problem of lost messages. Today inex-
pensive answering machines are common
in most homes. Keri Ferrett - 11 says, "I
have an answering machine. The recording
is nothing fancy, just me saying
I'm not home and to leave your
5 E55 name."
Being on the phone, isn't a
total waste of time, however, for
instance, the most important subject of
conversation seems to be local gossip,
who's seeing who, and who's mad about it.
Although gossip can get you in a lot of trou-
ble, lt's mostly harmless chatter that keeps
students busy on the phone instead of busy
being bored. - M,de,y,, Monk
FACE DOWN IN THE DIRT - "I'm sick of listening

may have even been trying to convince yourself
all semester that you had a photographic memory
and could name every part of the human anatomy

You finally come to your senses the night
before the big tests and realize that now you are
really paying or wasting all that time.
So at last you open that final book in your stack
and glance at the clock. If you hurry up and finish
you might even have enough time to take a

It's a 40 hour plus week when teachers carry work home.
lt's more than a job, it's an adventure. No, we are not
describing the Marines, the Pope, or even the President,
only teachers. Many teachers have more to do than the
usual load of classes to teach and homework to grade.
Mrs. Dominguez, Heralds' sponsor says, " spend
about one hour during school and one and a half hours
after school." There are quite a few teachers who "en-
joy" the added responsbility of sponsoring a club or
organization, and their help is an added plus because
these jobs are not required of them.
Hussar sponsor, Mrs. Doyle, says she enjoys spen-
ding the time with her girls, and also appreciates the fact
that her job helps keep in her shape. She was a member
of the Hussars from 79-81, and was a drum-major her
Mrs. C. Carroll has to be one of the busiest teachers
on campus. She not only teaches speech and theatre
arts, advanced and beginner levels, but she is also the
sponsor of four organizations. She practically lives in
her room upstairs in the theatre. "I sponsor speech,
drama, and debate on 9th grade and high school level,
plus the one-act play and the senior class, including cor-
onation and prom. I leave home at 7 a.m. and get home
about 7 at night, however, during competition season,
l'm doing well to get home by midnight. I enjoy most of
what I do, because I like working with kids when they
like what they're doing. I only resent the time I put in
when students want something fabulous immediately,
and expect me to provide it for them without their putting
in any effort. I do enjoy most of it, though. I wouldn't do it
if I didn't." The cheerleaders play a major role in
football season activities. Although they don't go to any
formal competitions excpet for camp, managing three
groups of eight girls each is still a pretty toug job. Ms.
West, cheerleader sponsor, admits it's all worth it when
she can step back and say that she has taken an active
part in boosting school spirit.
Academic clubs are just as important, and the spon-
sors put just as much, if not more time and effort, into
the projects for these clubs. Jack Sell, calculator club
sponsor, puts in 10 hours a week, and sometimes more,
in order to prepare his club for competitions. The
Calculator Club lformerly the Slide Ftule Clubj is a major
factor in several scholarships awarded every year or
calculator and slide rule. In reward for his hard work, Mr.
Sell gets the satisfaction of seeing his students walk
away with some very distinguished honors, including
between S100,00 and S150,000 in scholarships since
Mrs. Coco enjoys working with students who have
a high degree of skill and drive.
The clubs and organizations not only boost school
spirit, but the achievements of these groups are
solely owing to the time and hard work of the spon-
sors who volunteer their efforts for the benefit of the

F ANatics Add to Action
Fans of high school sports often times
travel great distances to see their favorite
sport played. Their reasons vary. Some
watch to see their teenager play, others
because they miss the spirit which accom-
panies the games.
Students attend the games for different
reasons, many to be seen with a certain
crowd by their peers. Some to watch their
friends play, and some to watch the game.
Football games in particular attract the
largest crowds. The reasons for this are
widely different. During the game there
are many exciting and spectacular plays.
But aside from the game itself, much ac-
tion is caught during the half-time show.
We have the Red Hussar Drum and Bugle
Corps, Swingsters Drill Team, and the
Maroon and Gold Marching Band. All
these help our loyal, hullabaloo fans keep
their spirits up. We have the cheerleaders,
which are an essential part to the fanatical
Each and every fan follows their team
through winning seasons, losing seasons,
adverse weather conditions, you name it.
Most fans are even willing to suffer
through many long hours of driving.
Usually the car being driven is packed like
a can of sardines, with friends who car
cranky because there is no leg room.
Then you can't forget the loads of food. Of
course when it's necessary, you've got to
pack coats an umbrellas.
The spectator of FANatic often suffer
from after effects for days, such as
laryngitis from screaming too loud, down
to the last second. The poor and innocent
bystander has a hearing aid in both ears
caused by the fanatic suffering from
All of this, and one question is still
unanswered. Why are high school sports
so popular? The answer, cheap tickets
and the competition is great.
The price of high school sports is very
appealing to the FANatic, and they just
can't resist a chance to catch the most ex-
citing action around.

Sports Slogans: Puts in the Effort, Play in Pain
athletic injuries are always avoided, but common in contact sports
Injuries to athletes involved in a con-
tact sport are anticipated, though not
desired. Sports injuries can occur
anywhere, from the top of the head to
the bottom of the foot, and may be mild
to serious in nature.
The number of injuries is best
alleviated through prevention. This is
the trainer's job. This prevention takes
the form of wrapping ankles to prevent
sprains, being sure equipment is in pro-
per condition, or occasionally warning
plazers of potential dangers.
hen dealing with sports injuries the
old adage is never truer, "An ounce of
prevention is worth a pound of cure."
Even with all the prevention
measures, injuries occur in any situa-
tion: from getting out of the locker room
shower, to the practice field or court,
and finally in the game. The first steps
to treatment is to properly diagnose the
injury. Often this is done by the trainer.
Many times he is able to indentify in-
juries such as sprains, hip pointers, and
jams. Proper diagnosis is important to
the proper treatment of injuries.
The second step is the actual treat-
ment of the injury. After cases dealing
with knee or ankle injuries, the athlete
is in need of treatment just to obtain the
proper movement to even walk. The
treatment routine itself is usually stan-
dard. It begins with ice the first day or
two and progresses to heat treatments.
The ice treatments involve the applica-
tion of ice packs which can become
quite uncomfortable after five or ten
minutes. You can only imagine
treatments that last half an hour to an
hour. Heat treatments vary. They range
from moist heat packs, whirlpools, to
high voltage low ampere electronic
stimulation. lt's healing qualities are
often outweighed in the athletes mind
by its potential inflection of pain. While
it is safe, it can often be a unique sen-
sation and the first time is viewed by an
The third step in dealing with injuries
is the rehabilitation back to full range of
motion and conditioning. Manty times
when an injured athlete lays o an in-
jury of any length of time, a stiffness
sets in. This is remedied by exercises
to work it and loosen it up. When an
athlete sits in the training room for even
a week he may lose a lot of stamina and
fall behind his teammates physically.
Rehab and reconditioning exercises
also serve to treat the athletes mind.
They help him to get his mind back into
the the state necessary to push himself
When an athlete is injured, many fac-
tors come into play. On one hand the
doctor may say he is out for two weeks,
the coach wants him back in 5 days for
a game, and mama might not want him
on the field ever. All these considerably
strong forces acting upon him at once
can shake him up. Couple these with
the faint underlying fear of whether he'll
ever play again in his own mind and
you've got a problem. ln these cases
the trainer is very important. lt is impor-
tant to keep spirits up and positive
thougmhts in the athlete. Many times a
healt y mind carries a sick body farther
than any doctor or clinic can.
Athletic injuries involve far more peo-
ple than just the injured athlete. They in-
vovle a group of people working closely
together for the common goodg the
athlete. The knowledge of both new
and old techniques of treatment is also
essential. The days of "put a piece of
tape on him and let him go," are all but
forgotten in today's training room.

Team Takes First ,in District
Jackets excel, but winning
season ends in Dayton
It was one of the bigcgest games of the
season, and the La y Jackets were
prepared for the inevitable. The first game
went quickly, with a victory of 15-9 for the
Jackets. However, it was not enough to
break the spirit of the Lady Falcons, which
came back to win the second and third
msatches for the big win of 15-11 and
The Lady Jackets started their season
on August 11 and ended their season on
November 8. Their final record was 25-3.
Thecy were also undefeated in District at
10- , won two out of three tournaments, a
Bi-District crown and All-District awards,
with one of the Jackets being selected to
the All-Star Team. '
The first tournament crown the Lady
Jackets won was the Spring Branch Tour-
nament. ln that tournament three of the
Lady J's walked away with Tournament
Awards. Sandra Garrison was voted Most
Valuable Plager, with teammates Donella
Carter and iahanna Titus winning All-
The second tournament was the YMBL
tYoung Men's Business Leaguel. Winning
awards in this one were Sandra Garrison
and Diahanna Titus, each winning All-
In Bi-District the Lady Jackets defeated
Eisenhower to win the Bi-District crown,
before having their season ended by Clear
Lake in the Regional opener.
After the end of their season, five of the
Lady Jackets starters won All-District 1
and 2 Teams honors. Donella Carter,
Yalonda Malveaux, and Diaphanna Titus
won 1st Team All-District honors, while
Sandra Garrison and Belinda Bonhomme
won 2nd Team Honors.
However, the season is not over for one
of the elite Lady Jackets. Donella Carter
was not only selected to the 1st All Team
All-District, but she was also selected to
the All-Star Team. When I found out that I
was selected for the All-Star team, I was
very shocked. During the season I made a
goal to make first team All-District. That
goal was achieved but the All-Star team
never really crossed my mind. This is a
great honor and I feel privileged to be a
part of the team. Although I wi I be getting
a lot of recognition, I could not have done
this without the terrific guidance of Ms.
Rosetta Wilson. She pushed me when I
thought I couIdn't go anymore I also
give thanks to the eam, I will miss them
dearIy," says Senior Donella Carter.
lt seems that the last few years, the
Lady Jackets started a winning tradition
that will always be part of their future, and
for the teams of the future. GOOD LUCK!

Lady Jackets make it to playoffs
Top honors go to girls with MVP, All-Districts
The Thomas Jefferson Lady Jackets Basketball
team, ended their season with an upset loss to the
Lady Jags of Forest Brook High, 69-63, in the first
Bi-District game. Last year the Lady Jackets
defeated the Lady Jags in the bi-district round of
the playoffs. However, the Jackets went on last
year to the regional finals.
The Jackets' season was not a total waste. The
Lady Jackets hosted a 29-3 record, a District title,
two tournament crowns, placed third in another.
They were also ranked No. 2 in the State.
The Jackets were undefeated in District,
because of a relentless defense, that caused
numerous turnovers, and also generated the
The Jackets won the LCM Tournament, the
Orangefield Tournament, and placed third in the
West Brook Tournament. In the LCM Tourna-
ment the Jackets defeated Lincoln f64-441, WO-S
Q66-62l, and LCM Q44-38l to take home the first
The Jackets then traveled to the Orangefield
Tournament, the Jackets defeated Johnson Bayou
C83-31l, PN-G C65-36l, and WO-S f56-441. Donella
Carter got an All-Tourney Award, while Jeri Gon-
soulin got the trophy for the free throw division.

the West Brook Tournament, where they
defeated Lincoln Q73-36l, WO-S f71-377, but
lost to the Lady Hawks of Hardin Jefferson
C61-4Ol, but came back to defeat the Lady Jags
of Forest Brook, f53-42l to take third in the
West Brook Tournament.
"I had mixed emotions about the season. lt
was a good season in aspects of winning
district, but it was also bad and disappointing
when we lost in the first round of the play-offs. I
feel that the high point in the season was
beating West Brook the second time. The
lowest point was when we lost to Forest Brook.
However, I feel that this was the best group of
Seniors I've had, and I feel like a proud father
who has watched his children grow up and
become successful individuals," says TJ Coach
But the Honors for the Jackets never seem
to stop. The Jackets Sandra Garrison and
Diahanna Titus were selected to the 1 Team
All-District, with Sandra Garrison being MVP.
On 2 Team All-District there was DeEdria
McDaniel and Donella Carter, with Tonya
Allen and Yalonda Malveaux getting
Honorable Mention. Coach Mark Honea was
named Coach of the Year.

cent finished first in the 100 meters at the

Golf players up to par
Members pull together for strong team
Golf to most people, is just playing a round of
eighteen holes. Some tend to take the game more
seriously. These people are called 'golf nuts' and
every club has at least one. This describes the TJ
gold team to the tee. They devise all manners of
competition to add more fun to the game.
Last year, the golf team won only one tourna-
ment and placed third in District. The year wasn't
a loss, however for Lee Comeaux received a
Presidential Scholarship to Baylor, and Kevin
Davis placed first overall in the Galveston
This year the team is really strong. Kevin Davis
- 12, Matt Drago - 12, Chris Sperry - 12,
and Chris Lamb - 10, are back from varsity last
year, and they are getting a real strong fifth man
play from Darin Davis - 10 and Eddie Ramirez
- 12. The team did very well in the tournament
at College Station this year. They were in second
place after 17 holes but ended up in fifth place.
Golf has kept many of the players out of trouble.
Matt Drago says, "lt has given me a reason to do
well in school because of HB72. I have made
many friends from other schools, and l have found
a sport I can excel at."
The golfers are required to be at practice 3-4
days a week, for at least two hours a day. To pass
the time away, they joke among themselves and
with their coach, Mr. Jack Commings. During the
season, the five people who are on the varsity
team get very serious about their game.
There's a lot of competition between the team
members to get the first man position. Some tend
to get "touchy" or "cocky" about their own game
or the other person's game. Nevertheless, when in
tournaments, they pull together as a team. They
supply moral support for each other, and if they
are playing bad, they try to "pep" each other up.
Golf is a team sport, as well as an individual sport.

lent job with the team," says Coach

erything went fairly smooth. Although there
:re rough spots during the year, we still pull-
together when game time came around."
:umann also spoke about the gap between
2 veteran seniors and the freshman players.
fgers tried all his new material this year,
pecially the underclassmen.
The senior captains were Kenny Livingston,
iarles Roccaforte, and Gabe Hernandez. ln-
lentally, two of those young men were the
Kenny Livingston made a hit with Rogers

zler, curve, and fastball were his game.
-metimes at practice he would throw a Mike
ott-special-split-finger-fastbalI, but during
mes he threw wall to wall heat for a strike-
t record of 88.
"The West Brook game had an effect on the
am as a whole, but I think the biggest turning
point from good to not-so-good was the Vidor
game. After that not many people had con-
fidence in themselves or their teammates,"
says Kenny Livingston-12. He ended his season
with 2.16 ERA, 88ks all in 63 36 innings pitch-
ed. Kenny made All-District Pitcher and won
the John Certa all tournament with 19 ks on
Nederland's players for that one game. He also
received a "full ride" scholarship to Alvin com-
Gabe Hernandez-12 stroked his season with
a .397 batting average and 1.57 ERA Gabe
didn't pitch much this season, but he did well
when he did. "I had a fairly good year playing
with all of the seniors and underclassmen. I
have four years of ups and downs with a lot of
good memories. I'd really like to thank my
teammates for a good season and I'd like to
come back and see that winning pride
Charles Roccaforte had .288 batting average
for his season. "We had a great beginning until
our turn around point at the West Brooke
game. The team seniors did well for the fourth
coach of our years at TJ. I hope that Jackets
have the winning attitude to get them to the
playoffs next year."
Many of the seniors did very well. The
pressure comes on when you're a senior and
scouts are looking for new material for college.
When the word is out to the players a scout is
in the stands, the heat is turned up for the
team. The Jackets were known for the ups and
downs of the season, but district came and the
Jackets went. The team still hung in the game,
when the going got tough, the Jackets didn't
go. They finished the game with pride.
Kevin Parsley made his game with a .294
batting average along with Trey Rothenberger
.260, Ed Robinson .254 and Richie Hernandez
as the designated runner.
The Jackets ended the season with a 8-3-1
preseason record and a 3-3-7 district record.
The -coaches would like to have seen the
team get further, but all the seniors have bright
futures ahead of them. Now it's time to work
with the new material. The underclassmen
have had a taste of Coach Rogers style, so they
know what is expected of them next year.
BOY WAS THAT CLOSE! This jacket base runner
found that taking a big lead off of third base can be
risky, hut, thanks to good reactions, he was safe.
HOSE IT DOWN. Coach Rogers knows that prepar-
lng the team is only half the job, a good team Isn't
their best without a field in good condition.

Tennis: A Mental, Physical, Psychological Sport
Tennis season usually starts in
February, but the real work starts in
September when the team goes through
training that helps build up stamina,
strength, and skills that will be useful in
the upcoming season. Such things include
developing the forehand, backhand, and
serve so that the player can place the ball.
Not only is tennis a physical sport, it is
also a mental sport. The players have
learned self-control, strategy, and self-
discipline. Strategy is one of the major
tools that the player must develop. A
player will not succeed if they go on the
court with something else on their mind
except winning. A better player will watch
hisfher' opponent in other games to
develop a strategy or general plan of what
his opponent's weaknesses are, and then
use it to his advantage.
Self-control is another tool that the
players mustdevelop. A player cannot
succeed by thinking he can win easily just
because he has an easier opponent.
When a player is playing someone of less
experience, the better player will tend to
make valuable mistakes that could cost a
point, game, or even a match.
Self-discipline is more of the physical
part of playing. The player must condition
themselves to be in top condition for the
season. When a mistake is made during a
game, a good player will know what he did
wrong and will correct it. Consistency
plays a major role in the game. Consisten-
cy is associated with anything and
everything that the player does in tennis.
Coaches also play a major role in a
player's game because when an athlete is
having a problem, the coach can give
pointers and helpful tips that, as a player
in the game, they cannot always see what
is the problem. Usually, after a little talk
with the coach, the player has calmed
down and made out a new strategy to try
and regain the points that were lost during
the player's slum.
The girls' tennis team included Anne
Segler, Laura Cleland, Wendy Havens,
Cynthia Champane, Beth Oltremari, and
Tristi Guidry, on varsity. Kim Coulter, Cory
Harrod, Lori Hayes, and Christina
Delgadillo, made good showings during
the season. "We gained a lot of valuable
tournament experience over the past
season," said Sherrie Ftoden, coach.
The boys' team included John Sherman,
Fausto Meza, Ronnie Williams, Jon
Walkes, Colin Walkes, Carlos Meza, and
Joe Escobedo, on varsity. Todd McMullin,
Jimmy Meeks, Claude Meels, and Duane
Frasier made good showings during the
season. The highest place for a tourna-
ment was the boys' doubles team Ftonnis
Williams and Colin Walkes finished first
place in Silsbee. The doubles team of
John Sherman and Ronnie Williams finish-
ed first runner-up for regional play. "I ex-
pect an even greater victorious year in
87-88", said Guy Logan, coach.
Overall, the year of 87-88 should be an
exciting one for both teams.

ERE SHOULD l START? - Beth Oltremari - 9
nders where she should start digging through the
rious articles in her locker before school lets out.
atch Y Later
Summer! lt's almost here! Only about a
week or so left of school. You've started mak-
ing plans for beach trips, packing for college,
and lazy days, But first, you have to prepare
for the closing of school. Yes, it's that dreaded
week of final exams and locker clean-outs,
lf you are one of the very lucky ones, all you
have to do is go over the material for final ex-
ams the night before testing. As Scottie
Flanigan - 12 puts in, 'iStudying, what's
that?" Or you may be one of the many who
wait until the last minute and then cram the
night before. 'fl wait until the last minute for
everthing, why should exams be different?"
stated Joe Brown - 12.
But, if you're like most, your television,
radio, and telephone will be unplugged all week
so that you can study. Sure you may be able to
squeeze in a phone call here and there or a
song on the radio in between study sessions,
but with seven classes to study for, your breaks
will be short and sweet.
Then come the locker clean-outs. School of-

studies diligently for her final exams anticipating
the 3 month freedom ahead of her.
ficials honestly believe that fifteen or twenty
minutes is enough to clean out your locker. Not
true! First of all you have to return those five
library books that you found at the very bottom
of your locker and have been overdue since the
third week of school. Then, into the trash goes
those twenty-five folders covered with who
loves who, and who was here when, but you
just couldn't bear to throw them away because
of the sentimental value. Then, away go the
four hundred and fifty notes that you couldn't
bear to throw away for the same reason. Ah,
finally you are down to the food you accidental-
ly left in there. We won't even discuss the
smell, or what it looked like, because it's ob-
lt's obvious by the way
everyone else in your locker
stall evacuated the minute you
took it out.
vious by the way everyone else in your locker
stall evacuated the minute you took it out to
throw away! "l've found clothes, food, old
books, shoes, and missing things l didn't even
know l was missing," Teres Stewts - 11
Through all these hardships of studying and
cleaning, one thought should keep you going: ln
just a few days, you will receive the best
reward a student can get - SUMMER! Or the
three reasons every teacher teaches, "June,
July, 8r August!',

The year is finally coming to a close,
you're counting down the days, and the
sun and surf are calling you. Somewhere
out there, there's a patch of sand with
your name on it and you've got to go and
This is the time of year when the
thought of sitting in a boring accounting
class instead of soaking up the sun seems
like the ultimate torture. More and more
often at the end of May, there are
numerous doctor and dentists appoint-
ments, and deaths in the family, and they
most often occur on sunny days.
lt's too late to call it spring fever, and
too early to call it the summertime itch, so
what exactly is it? Well, it may not have a
name, but whatever it is lt's contagious.
After all, no one heads off to the beach
alone, do they?
You've got your excuse, your car is gas-
ed up, the ice chest is full, and the food's
packed. You're all set to go. Half the fun of
going to the beach is getting there, and
there's nothing more relaxing cruising
down the highway with the windows down
and the stereo blaring. There's something
about the wind in youf hair and the salt air
on your face that really makes you feel like
summer's finally here. When you finally hit
the beach, the last thing on your mind is
the friends you've left behind to sweat in
their classrooms. Instead, you're concen-
trating on catching some rays, or maybe
some waves, depending on how surf
oriented you are.
But rays and waves are not the only
things being caught on the beaches. As
Wendy Jackson - 11 put it "the beach is
where the guys are!l", and all that Lenny
Caballero - 12 could mutter was "girls,
girls, girls." Yes, lt's true, you go to the
beach to catch an eyeful. When that good
looking guy in the red bathing suit pulls
down his shades to take a better look at
you or that cute blonde in the black bikini
turns her head to watch you walk by you
can't help but get a little excited.
ln the crowd of truant teenagers there
are a few brave souls who venture out into
our gulf waters. They are willing to risk
staining their swimsuits with balls of tar or
maybe stepping on a broken bottle or two
to have the salty waves slam against their

says "I usually wear out three of four
bathing suits a year from being in the
water." But, for those of us who are not
that courageous there is plenty of sand to
stretch out on to fry our skin.
For others who don't enjoy salt water
dripping from their hair or get bored bak-
ing in the sun there are always other ac-
tivities. Many enjoy horseshoes,
volleyball, and frisbee, while others in-
dulge in more aggressive 'sports such as
tag or touch football.
After getting totally exhausted, it's now
time to eat. While some munch on candy
bars and chips, others prefer a more
elaborate meal like barbeque, ham-
burgers, or hot dogs. Getting a coke out of
the ice chest, many find themselves lean-
ing back to get a slight better tan and to
enjoy the last rays of the sun. Abeer Beck
- 10 says, "I mix Mazola Corn Oil and
Tropical Sun Tan Oil and pour it all over
my body in order to roast at the beach."

Craig Keene - 12 says, "l don't plan to

but I have a few other 'Spudsy' ideas."
But when the sun goes down, the ap-
petites are appeased and sunbathers give
up hope, the sandy beaches become a
romantic setting for sweethearts and
hopeful romantics. While lovesick singles
search for that special someone, various
couples aimlessly walk along the moonlit
Whether it's romantic interludes,

With the close of school, students go their
separate ways. For seniors it's a final goodbye
to many friends. For underclassmen it's only a
three month break from the pains and
pressures of high school life. Students have
many big decisions ahead of them, but most
predict their upcoming summer to be one of
vacations, rest and relaxation.
The goal of most students is to put school as
far out of their minds as possible. "I plan to go
to many places that I have not yet visited. My
plans include a relaxing trip to California to en-
joy the sun and malls that the area provides,"
says Shannon LaDay - 12. The
underclassmen also plan to recuperate from a
long year. "I plan to go to Florida during the
month of June for a week. Then from mid-July
to Mid-August, I am going to bike ride from
Seattle to San Francisco," comments Scott
McNich - 10.
For other students there is only a two day
break before they directly go back to summer
sessions of various colleges and summer
school for underclassmen. The end of their
years of classes signify the beginning of new
classes. "I will begin my studies at college,
right after school lets out" says Shanna
Weilion - 12.

the beginnings of a quest for others. Be it sum-

over with but for these editors, typists,
and writers, it is not. The final pages of
the yearbook have to be completed, and
with a little encouragement from Mr. Paul
every Jll senior spends a couple of hours
helping out. But most of the staff'doesn't
mind returning to finish up. Chrissy
Cockrell - 12 is one of those. "I don't
mind coming back to work. Afterall, it's a
group project and it needs group effort."
It's true that the Jll juniors help out but
the majority of the staffers are seniors.
After the final shipment is ready to be
mailed, everyone hurries home to put on
their caps and gowns for graduation.
The yearbook staff is like any other
team, be it football, drill team, or UIL
competitors. The members stick around
until the final play is made. Though all
members do not intend to work inthe
end they're all caught catching up.
