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. - Jennifer Shuemate I HAVE IT UNDER CONTROL - Laura Cleland - 12 tries to convince her sister that she has everything under control and not to worry about her CHI.

Everything did go fine until there were four people to go until our turn. Both of them were fine then one started to cry for her mom and then the other did the same. Everything worked out but by then I really could have used a Valium. Carla Erickson - 12. 1 4 TUDENT IFE K?" My mother and I were talking one day about kids going fast in their speedy cars. She told me that I better not go fast because the cops are bad at night. Then she told mel better stay at home, but I said, "There is a killer party in Port Neches, mom.'T She said, "Then go ahead.":'Well, I went to this party and it was time to come home. I was so happy I didn't get a ticket. Then all of a sud- den I heard sirens well, I got a ticket like my mom said. Terri Bushnell - 12. I was taking Driver's Ed at Triangle Driving School in Nederland. The month after I got a ticket in Groves. I had to take Defensive Driving. When I got there I found that the Defensive Driver Teacher was the same man that taught me Driver's Ed. He told the whole class about it. It was embarrassing. Luz Ceja - ll,.,-yt . ,,r l V 'i 4 6' 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 started! How about the time you dediced to run the ..: swf' f ...M 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. - Jennifer Shuemate THIS IS N0 TIME FOR STRETCHING - Asst. Drum Major Loren Pond - 12 stretches to pick up her baton before the half time performance while Drum Major Roxanne Balsamo - 12 continues wtih Fanfare. ,x,, The test I was about to take was going to deter- mine whether l would pass or fail English. It was a big test! My English teacher was Mrs. Smith, so you know that the test was hard and I didn't stand a chance of passing. ljust knew that I was going to fail and, sure enough, I did. Even though I studied all night long and thought that I knew the material, l made a 69 out of 100, boy was I upset! - Joey Antoine - 12. You're all set. Nobody could possibly know who you are. You've got your shades on even though it's eleven-thirty at night. You are going to ride by your ex-boyfriends house. Just as you hit the gas peddle pass the house doing 75 mph, and think everything is going to be fine. You pass by and you catch your ex-boyfriends eyes as they stare out of the window through your shades and straight into your mind. BUSTED!!! - Julie Fredeman - 12 k 'as' , . - ,f 1: ss s -,. One day I came to school thinking that everything that could go wrong, would go wrong. As it turned out everything went wrong. I had forgotten to do several of my homework assignments. On top of all of that, I almost got into 'a fight with some of my good friends over something that was uncalled for and stupid. And of course, I had six weeks of school to look forward to. Sometimes life Q'!'4'8rQ!!! James Wilson - ll T DENT IFE 15 l l l lW'll'lTlNHi ll lT1l El l I l Long practice hours makes for near-perfect performances 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 worth it.

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- solutely nothing. 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 beginning. 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 minute's rest. 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 was." 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 GO FOR IT! - Daniel Anderson - 12 is temp- ted to jump into the pool In the 102' weather at the South Fork Ranch outside of Dallas.

So, it is time to say good-bye to the carefree life and hello to a brand new school year.

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 Jackets on."

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 Swingster stickers. More common are decorated folders. Vicki Rackel - 12 does it "because it gives me something to do or read during classes." Most folders sport slogans like, "Ride to live, live to ride", "Marcy loves Randy," or the names of favorite rock groups. 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 Hamilton, Novis lCookieJ Wilson, Martin QM 8 Ml Mayon, Clarence lMaddogl Bennett, Shane lTurbol Saenez, Chad lSlopeyl Sartin, Brian lGusJ Guthrie.

TUDENT IFE '27 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 queen." 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."

N C06 PIRIT EEK eeping With Jacket Mania 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.

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.

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.

Kathy Stockton commented, "Although Cav-Oil-Cade was physically and mental- ly draining, I can reminisce favorably about the exciting events I partook in."

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.

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 social activities. 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 40 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 of pride-swallowing. 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. - Madelyn Monk WHAT'S YOUR BRAND?

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 ldue to no school related activities and no graduation, for seniors at leastl. However, since both can be achieved, with effort, for most, these two requirements pose no problem. All in all the year, had its ups and downs, but proved to be quite a success.

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 speakers. 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 12. -o :- 9, O cr sc :xi ?. si 2 il HOW D0 YOU WORK THIS THING? - Joe Utley - ll tries to figure out how to work the video camera as he can tape a Spanish Club poster party at Claude, and Jimmy Meeks house. gYlHA, ARRIBA, ARRIBA! - Karissa Morel - 12 dances an authentic Mexican Dance entitled "La Negra" for several classes to familiarize them with the Mexican Heritage. f F ll ,f i 0, .

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 to excel. 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 f GIMME MY CERTIFICATE!

"When cutting open a fetal pig, you learn more because you are learning from first hand experiences, and lectures can become boring," says Scott Hartzog - 11. Physics is a combination of book work and experiments. Whenever a physics lab is done, it has to be written up in a physics write up book. Bo Vincent - 12 says, "Physics is interesting and enlightening. Chemistry labs are fun too but class is hard." Journalism ll is also a lab class. The yearbook and newspaper staffs have to design layouts, write feature stories and headlines, and sell ads. In short, they put together the whole yearbook and newspaper. The whole class period is 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 maneuvers. Photo journalism is not a subject that could be easily understood without actual- ly handling a camera. The same holds true for typing. Therefore, lab classes are the preference of more students because they spend class time actually experiencing the activities and therefore learning more. - Madelyn Monk sms Photo by W.

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 pizazz. 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 words." 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 For Good Soldiers. CKingdom, Phylum, Class, THAT'S INTERESTING - Valerie Barrios - 12 looks in- terested in the subject matter in Mr. Tolar's Astronomy Class. in ws- li Order, Family, Genius, Speciesl. As seen in cases around the country, si history teachers get their point across by ac out a certain time period. Now wouldn't i interesting to see Mr. Gothia dressed George Washington? How about Ms. S1 dressed like Guenevere? Students wi definitely remember that lecture! These are all good ways to help stud remember particular lessons and lectures, to get the most of any lecture, notes mus taken. This appeals to both the auditory sensory sections of the brain, as well as keel the student's mind on the subject rather 1 on last week's party. We all know that most teachers will not d up as the characters they are lecturing Therefore, it is up to the student to get fro lecture as much as possible. As we have he. "you get from something exactly what youl into it." The efforts put into getting the ri from a lecture class, by giving full attentioq the teacher, will pay off when the next arrives.

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.

Whiz Kids 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.

This someone is referred to as the "tem- porary teacher." "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 jobf' 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 resigned. Another temporary teacher who 1 students seemed to love was Ms. Shermi With a degree in math she was asked substitute for Ms. Seiver last year. When asli how she felt about the job she replied, "It's l you're a permanent teacher. I felt that th. fthe students didnit lose six weeks."l 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 better," says Ms. Sherman. According to Ms. Dominguez, "Stude, usually get used to another teacher after tl' settle down. I felt like they learned." On the flip side of the teacher-student re tionship coin, if the students do not sh respect for the substitute she cannot teach. 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. by Jennfier Knipple - Photojournalism class learns how to take a group shot.

Maybe the questions should be "Should rdents consider the UIL competition contest another activity, just another number?" Much hard work goes into UIL competition. rious divisions begin practicing for UIL eks, even months in advance. In fact, some oups practice all year long such as calculator. ys Ryan Vurlicer, "Every morning we prac- ed for 45 min. and occasionally after hoolf' UIL Competition is important not only for me individual but for the school as well. ecognition is gained when students advance S the regionals, etc. xllnfortunately only medals are awarded to iose in district and regionals. None of our ludents received any money for their hard ef- qrts - no one won at state. X lt is somewhat confusing to people according i how the competitions go. First is district. ,fter district is regionals, then lastly and most nportantly, state. Only a small handful of :udents even qualify for state. It is quite tough n reach the top. Much time was spent but perhaps if more me was spent at practice, more students fould have advanced to state. Port Neches racticed for months after school and they Lole most of the awards from our students asps. As many of TJ students who practiced alances the ones who didn't. For example, the 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 would have practiced." It really is a shame that people who could have placed at district cheated themselves because they neglected themselves. l am definitely just as much at fault. I found all of my poetry the night before and did not rehearse it until it was about to per- form. Surprisingly enough I went on to finals 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 personal schedule. Students get so burden down will all of their other priorities that they have no time for many other equally important things. I regret that I didn't spend more time rehear- sing for my poetry competition. l considered it important until the time hold came. When the majority of UIL participants look back, they will see the importance of the contest. Perhaps we all should take a moment to evaluate our hectic schedules and weed-out the not so im- portant and replace it with what is. Kathy Stockton AIR FORCE ACADEMY - C. J.

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 she slips into a coma. Her condition worsens until it seems that she will not live through the The play action begins with Susan in I '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 sion" about her life. She strongly urges Sus to re-evaluate her life and to continue Iivi We know that Susan has the choice of life death, but the ending leaves us baffled ab her decision. The most difficult part of the play was cutti the original two act play into a one act versi that would meet UIL rules and standards sin the original one act version of The Girl in t Mirror was horrible, Mrs. Carroll applied cutting talents and made a worthwhile pla She did a fabulous job, as usual. , Before the cutting was completed, ca members had already begun to work 5 character analysis or understanding of one role. The actors and actresses had groi discussions about roles: plus, each had the it portunity to personalize his character.

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. Christine Barton E Laurelle Rethke NE CT Q Exotic Excursion 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 Texas. 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 reason. 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 tunately the fires did not last very long and tl temperature fell to below 30 degree Needless to say, the students practically rozl ln the middle of the night, John-Jol Podnevich lit a heater in the men's restrooi Soon after, Carla Erickson, Danielle Moor and Leigh-An Guidry moved their camp sight the floor of the men's room. The following morning, the group collects the rodent traps and samples of the vegetatic in the immediate area. Upon returning to tl lab, analogies were made of the vegetation ai the area was named a Tamalipan Chaparj Savannah. The students sat in a large circle to analii the rodents that had been acquired. Volunteej held the creatures while other students studii features. Due to the fact that the small fur captives were wild, they were a bit dangero Danielle Moore and Yianis Selinidis were ten. Mr. Lasseinge doctored them while t others found the littel varments to be wh footed mice. Concluding the visit to Welder, discussion on mammals and birds was givl by Bryan and Gene. Gene was informati about the many types of birds. When the group loaded on the bus for depa ture, they were very tired from the trip. It l went over very well and was not only fun, ti educational. y Danielle Moc and Shannon Hueb As xfscgl lat. 1 f j WELDER WILDLIFE - Scott Hartzog - ll, Yianis Selinidis - 12, Michael Whitley - 12, Chris .lunge 12, Brian Landry - 12, Bo Vincent - 12, Katrina Shaw - 12, John Poclnivich - 12, Danielle Moore - l Shannon Heubel - 12.

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.

O ef rw 1 E9 L. o : 2 Hands-on experience 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 several fields. "By going to Stilwell, a person can attain ex- perience in a certain field-experience other people do not have," says Sean Nance - 12, lautobodyl. Because of the experience, these students "Have a better chance of getting a jobfl says Paul Blanchard - 12, lmajor appliancel. 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 gggsgjfg .si J W r. 1.-.-ww 5,2- t . .rss .:rxf..g1r..w ' 'sf . jQ'e'fa5.:rL rsrs 1 -as fzfrfftl A if' -L T iff ,,, .

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 chance of getting a job after high school," says Joseph Paul - 12 tauto mechanicsl.

TILWELL 103 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 - 11. 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 GW' 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 worthwhile. Another important Friday night "club" is the Texans, without these faithful guys, "Buzz' would never make his traditional appearance on the field. Also, they're very helpful to the cheerleaders in the making of run throughs and 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, even though they don't have to practice as long in the summer as the Hussars, Band, and Sw- ingsters do. Throughout football season and afterwards, these dedicated members are always working hard to give the student body a reason to have school spirit.

Bang! As a wooden gavel pounds the podium, about thirty students jump in their seats and grimace at the noise. They know to get quiet because Student Body President Yianis Selinidis - 12 has just called the Con- gress meeting to order. Every other Monday evening, these dedicated students give up about an hour of their time to meet with the Student Body Of- ficers to discuss the business of the school. From dances to drug programs to fund raisers, they've done it all. Yianis Selinidis - 12 says "There were many goals that were set for Con- gress this year and the majority of them were accomplished. I cna honestly say we had a suc- cessful year." The Howdy dance was the first event Con- gress sponsored. Then came Homecoming and DECORATING THE CALENDAR - Christine Bar- ton - 10 shows off her artistic talents by cleverly writing important dates on the information calender. . .s sv ' J al' 1-.1 Organizing the activities, Besides all of these activities, they served as ushers for Dracula: The Musical? There were still many activities to take place. January rolled around and so did the time for the Morp Dance. Members brought anything they had dealing with safari or jungle theme to create a backdrop that was liked by all. Robert Chesson - 11 says of it, "Morp was a great dance. The jungle theme gave everyone a reason to act like savages. lt was a real success." At the end of February members began get- ting up on Saturday mornings, sacrificing a day of sleeping late to go collecting for Hughen School. They went through various neighborhoods to knock on every door asking for donations. Despite the "I gave at the office" attitudes and having doors slammed in their faces, they raised about 3600. The end of the year brought about many closing activities. They voted on new members for the Good Sportsmanship League with the results being: Scott Jackson - 11, President Robert Black - 11, Angelique Comeaux - 11, and Stacey Solis - 10. The Most Outstan- ding Congressman was Carla Erickson - 12 followed by Yianis Selinidis - 12, Scott Jackson - 11, Robert Black - 11 and Stacey Solis - 10. The banquet was held May 7 in the cafeteria. Everyone who attended had a great time, especially when Mr, Kindell roasted the officers and other congressmen. The new of- ficers were sworn in and the old ones reminisc- ed about the past year. They also had a picnic complete with boudain, watermelon and volleyball. Overall most would say Congress had a suc- cessful year. Alethea Brown - 12 said, "This was a very good year for Congress. We had a lot of fun and got many things accomplished. We all really did a great job." Most people would tend to agree Congress has achieved its goals and is back on the track.

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. '4 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 friend. 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.

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 "HEY MOM DID YOU SEE MY NAME IN LIGHTS?" - asks Captain Toni Fontenot - 12 as she awaits graceiully for halftime, at the astrodome. "HOW MUCH LONGER DO WE HAVE T0 STAY LIKE THIS?" - asks Carla Graham - 12 to Tracey Postula - 12 who has kept smiling even through the pain. In order to stay in the limelight.

Tamera Mayfield, First Lt., played Tinkerbell and floated around, sprinkling everyone with her pixie-dust to add the final touch. The performing acts were played by First Lt.

WINGSTERS 113 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 PL-1 POOR LITTLE INDIAN BOY - Feature twirler Paige Umphry - ll prepares to scalp her an Indian at the Port Neches pep rally. 3 9. o a- -c ui :- at :.i : o : I g ru 1:- E. 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. -AngieBonin f::.farf'f' SENIORITIESQ MICHELLE? - Laura Terrell - ll and Latrice Johnson - 11 play diligently while Michelle Hilton - 12 pretends to play her invisible drum.

USSARS 1 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. -Angle Bonln IDEAL HUSSAR AND ESCORT - Shannon Hue - 12 and Jeff Rutherford - 12 were named ld Hussar and Escort at Hussar Ball. - Photo by Angle E , 512, . ,, .f,,M,V, .V zhfvw f - 'rdf , , . , I' ., ' , - ga ' - 1' 4 Photo by Mrs. Um PREPARING FOR THE BIG NIGHT - Paige Um- phry - ll pins a boutonniere on her date Wayne Hebert - 12 as they get ready to go to the ball.

They had to work 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.

"At camp we had a blast, but it was also a lot of hard work," said Leigh-Ann Guidry - 12. Both squads practiced five days a week, sometimes twice a day. Both JV and varsity squads attended Sam Houston State University for camp. "At 102 degrees everyday, traveling up and down hills, to and from practice was very strenuous work," said Mary Lovelace - 10. Varsity squad achieved all superior ratings and brought home the spirit stick, while JV also did very well. The football team brought us to the Astrodome, and we cheered our hearts out. Unfortunately, we didn't return again. "I wouldn't change anything for the experience of cheering in the dome, we had a great season," stated Shana Lancon - 11. This has been a memorable time for all the cheerleaders. We had to adjust to not having a cheerleader P.E. as well as a new sponsor.

HEERLEADERS 119 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 done. They learned t at some guy named Harold did not start the organization and that there was a lot more to Heralds than Homecoming. "This year we have really tried to become more involved with school and have more activities. We want Heralds to be a popular group and get a lot of peo- ple interested in what we do," said Melissa Guthrie - 12, President. The ser- vicg, organization is made up of juniors an seniors. 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 Week began, and Heralds decided to take part in the Apple Review Contest. Inger Bazron - 12 remarked, "lt's nice to take out time to show our appreciation to our teachers, since the administration doesn't." Thety bought miniature apples and made up ortunes to tie to them such as: "Your students will do well on their next test" Hearalds won third place - Lu- cian Adams - 12 said, "It was very hard to think up over 100 sayings that were acceptable." For their Community Service Project, they visited Cresthaven Nursing Home during Christmas, to wish them a "Merry Christmas." Suenda Clewis - 11 reveal- ed, "lt made me feel good to brighten so- meone's holiday."

A small assortment of students lounge around a garbage truck, waiting for a car loaded down with newspaper. When one arrives, they carry the paper to the truck and toss it in the back. This goes on for two-and-a- half hours. 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 with the concern, the numbers have shrunk, and we now have only a few good people who donate nearly 3 hours of time each month to help their environment and to .support worthy groups, from the Wilderness Society to the local Humane Society. How nice that some people still care!" Each Saturday that a paper drive is held, the members see many of their regular patrons and some new ones. Members enjoy talking to these people and are very appreciative of the interest in what they are tryingi to do. Even though it is a lot of hard wor the club feels it is all worthwhile.

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.

"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 higher. "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." -JeffSteln 'Pi It :fel 32232 I lT1 O 'Tl Q.

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.

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.

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. .

Christina Delgadillo - 10, says "I wish more would come to the Port Arthur theaters, they are a chance to escape from the drab life of Port Arthur. Don't get me wrong, movies are great. They are a way to express someones desires and dreams." Many things are seen every year in the theatre, but not everyone is an avid fan. Tristi Guidry - 10, says, "I don't go to the movies often because I know I will see them on television soon after. I will go see one of I hear that it is really good." 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 ween men and women They were equal and there was give and take in both characters Other movies show a strong female protagonist JUMPIN WHOOPIEI Actresslcomedian Whoope Goldberg ina e efrom her mo 1 J mpl Jack Flash 1321VI-IVI- such as Extremltles, Jumpln Jack Flash, Outrageous Fortune, and The Cl or Purple.

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 ' Laurelle Rethke 1 INI AG "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 g Books 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 . . . F DS 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 much more, 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.

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' gem : .Q is i H -K. 'K K4 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 back. 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. - Angela Jackson ARE THOSE REAL? Yes they are real.

Though, we have to worry about prices si they have gone up and people are paying 101 1000 dollars for their rings. Graduation. It's all you hear the seniors saying. 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 thought you could make it through the long hours of homework and other things you need to get done. Some of us have more freedom and leisure time now that we've gotten all of the hard classes out of the way. Reginald Charles - 12 says, "I have gotten all my hard classes out of the way and it's a great feeling to be able to relax your last year in high school. Now it's the time for seniors to lay back and enjoy what may be the last time they'll ever do anything with their high school friends, and maybe even their families too. Alberto Villarrea - 12 says, "I'm ready to graduate, and face the real world, but since this is my senior year, taking easy classes will help SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS - Selina Sellers - Treasurer, Gretchen Vaughan - Vice President Alethea Brown - President, Not pictured - Christi Holltead - Secretary. -l ENIOR IVISION THE LAST TIME Gait me out since l've taken all the required classes to get me where I am." For some students, however, their senior year doesn't mean all easy classes and free time. Katrina Shaw - 12 says, "In a way, I wish that I would have taken easy classes so that I could have had more time to do anything other than academics. I feel however, that having taken all honors courses will make studying in collge a lot easier." Some students are so busy preparing for col- lege that they hardly have time to realize that it's their last year in high school. Nothing motivates people more than the thought of the last pep rally and even the foot- ball games seem to be played better than you've seen before, just because its your classmates playing. There's nothing like standing for the eyes of Texas for the last time to make you really feel like you're accomplishing something big like graduating. - Sarah Silva BUSY AS A BEAVER!! - People Section ed Sarah Silva - 12 is trying very hard to get all ol yearbook work in on time. ,.. .agua I , .MQ g 5 ev -'PTT 1-if zfvi-.1 ,lo .3 .As-Qffa SENIOR CABlNET, Top Row: Trey Rothenberger - 12, Scottie Flanigan - 12, Beaux Vincent - 12, Vaughan - 12, Wade Casmire - 12, Bryan Landry - 12. 2nd Row: Petoria Williams - 12, Monica L1 - 12, Liz Lasseigne - 12, Hung Nguyen - 12, Alethea Brown - 12, Melissa Guthrie - 12, Er Washington - 12. 3rd Row: Lucian Adams - 12, Laurie Porras - 12, Laurelle Rethke - 12, lnger Ba - 12, Mrs. Carol, Grethchen Vaughan - 12, Kathy Stockton - 12.

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 Rhodes - 11 case, "I get up at dawn to deliver newspapers." 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.

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 falling asleep DAVIS-GABIEFI ENIOFI 149 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.

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."

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.

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. -Sarah Silva STUDY, STUDY! - Sondra Pettit - 9 is trying finish her last night's homework as she sits in fri of the cafeteria before the bell rings. at srt. .

Car trouble is no excuse You have to face Mrs. Leon when you're tardy to first 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- complished early in the morning." Although many may have a little trouble getting a good start, a few students really need to be alert Vurlicer - 11 remarks, "I have my mother first period and that really ESE: confess that they over slept. The cleverest and most unique excuse that somehow worked was used by Mellissa Ray - 10, "One day I woke up late. l was hurrying alone in the shower when my ride called and said she wasn't going to school. I said okay, it was only 7:30, and l was going to have my mother take me when she came in from work. She got home at 7:45 but she had gotten in a wreck and the car wasn't driveable. My two sisters had already left so I couldn't beginning to panic. l woke up my -- step-brother, and he was going to for their first period class. Ryan get them to take me. Now l was ruins my outlook for the rest of the day." The majority of first period classes require alot of time and thought, even if it is P.E. Boring classes and tired students are not the only events happening bright and early in the morning. An interesting topic that could rouse anyone from a sound sleep. The string of funny excuses that students try to get away with being late. Some say that they had a flat tire or their ride didn't show up, but honest people simply take me but he couldn't find his keys. Luckily he found them and I ended up only being 10 minutes late. lronically my story was believed by Mrs. Leon of all people, and I got an excused pass and didn't have to stay after."

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. - Angela Jackson SHERMAN-THOMAS ENIOR 1 156 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 the morning. 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 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 reaching the half way mark of the day. - Angela Jackson N0 FUN TODAY SHARRON - Accurately worl Sharron Thomton - 12 spends her entire I period trying to meet her deadline for the yearb- iz: all W fc b. 5 tm. wi Devin Weber Pamela Wheeler Stephanie White Michael Whitley Thomas Wilbur Clint Wilkinson Darren Williams Marshall Williams Petoria Williams Ronald Williams -at . .,-tif I ,Q -A ah' 3 .4-P' inlet! l .gg P LaJohn Wilson Darrell Wiltz Sheila Wise Bret Woodall Roshonda Yeggins d QF riq oxoq E HOLD IT RIGHT THERE BUDDY!!!

Good luck in the futue peach!! Graduation Time 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 night." 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 7 r P 7 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 processing." 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.

Thank you for making our high scared seniors as they march into the boys' gym on ool years so special. graduation night. FINALLY - yes the time is here for all of the graduates to receive their diplomas on their hap- piest times oI their life, graduation night. Good Luck Seniors of 1 9 8 7 'Hamm 'H 'iq cloud RADUATION -I 61 UNIORS CAN'T HELP 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 JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS - Wendy Jackson - Secretary, Rechale LaFleur - Vice President, Robert Black - President, and Lana Lancon - Treasurer. 1 UNIOFKS IVISION FASCINATING - Sharon Thompson - 11 Lana Lancon - Il join the Jr. class cabine discussing the homecoming float for the Jr. clan: at-lil . A L .ik ' .5 A 'ofoawfl . lTexas Educational Assessement of Minimal Skillsj. By this time many students have gotten fed up with acronyms and other nifty names that are placed on tests like CAT, PSAT, SAT, and TABS. However, most juniors are not worried about the TEAMS in the least. Rian Glasscock - 11 says, "I think it's OK for us to take it. After all, we donit want any goons to get out of school if they can't read or write. Football isn't everything." 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. - Chrissy Cockrem ASK ME IF I CARE - Thinks James Speyrer - 11, with a smile on his face.

What is it? It's 1870 students' stomaches rumbling at the same time. Sheila Miguez - 9 says, "My stomach starts growling around 2nd or 3rd period." Finally, the bell rings and half the students will be able to ease their hunger pains. Some of the lucky ones have cars or know someone w h o does. "I usually g e t a quarter pounder at McDonald's with my friends," says John Hall - 12. Others don't care where they eat or what they eat. "I sometimes drive to lunch, and I go wherever my hunger desires for that day," says Angie Pinson - 10. Some, who prefer de- cent food, stroll over to Hardee's or Church's. Aber Beck - 10 says, "Cafeteria food? Ugh? I eat at Hardee's!" Well, everyone knows that only half the stu- dent body -can't go to lunch at one time because of the size of our school. Therefore, half the school runs to lunch at 11 while the other half is stuck sitting in class until 12,l' Kristi Robbins - 10 says, "I sit in my seat and my stomach growls like crazy while others talk about where they are going to eat." In order to forget about their hunger, many people find them- selves goofing off in fourth period while waiting for the bell. "I usually sleep or do h o m e - work for EE E o t h e r ?'EgE classes," : :: says Jen- n if e r Walkes - 10. But where are the teachers when this is going on? Next are the people who have to leave for Summit, Stilwell or work. Adele Chatlain - 12, one of the lucky ones, goes home to watch her soaps and wait for 3 p,m. so that she can go to the Love and More Day Care Center to earn her credits for HECE. Break is a word that 'we've all come to love. So whether you're at work, at lunch, or sitting in class, remember it'll all be over soon. - Chrissy Cockrell Angelique Comeaux Kimberlea Coulter Sharnette Crachian Dean Crooks Mlrna Delagarza Paul DeLaRosa Mark Delagadillo Mike Delagadlllo Mark Diaz Binh Doan Seth Dugan Rachel Durio Rhonda Evans Keri Ferrett G Fl regory ores Leprecia Fonlenot Steven Cummings Kevin Cupples r Be Thi Dao Jason Davalos . . 6 OH MY!

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.

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 Bilancich-11. 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 King-11. As soon as the bell rings, everything is back to normal. Only one more hour and then - freedom. Chrissy Crockell ' UI'llOf 167 . 1' ,'- w if .,:-55,13 Emily Walker John West A.

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 'I 0 UNIOR WALKER-ILLA around me." says Scott Jackson - 11. Finally, the teachers get tired of all the noise and start yelling "Get quiet! School's not out yet!" while t h e K V1 A' +5 . the finishing touches on their projects and cleaning up.

Stilwell students are putting that, I clean myself up and return to my home school. Students who are in athletics last period are either on the field, court, or golf course. "We're supposed to go out to Babe Zaharius Golf Course for eigh period golf, or go play basketball at the YI CAQ' says Matt Drago. Last period sides are busy ripping pink slii out their designated slots, dishing out passe and sloping up bulletins.

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 1987. 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 next year. -David Amy ROM UNIOH 169 A night to remember. MY.

Clmlfli 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 SOPHOMORE CABINET - Demetra Hawkins, Stacey Solis, and Christine Barton. VOTE WHO?!! - Bret Burt - 10 shows his devo- tion to Christine Barton - 10 at the election party at Christine's house. UP 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.

C 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 case." 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 IOOK fOI'Wal'd IO. -Madelyn Monk ROBERTS-SIEVERS SOPHOMOFIES 1 'V 5 o a- 'c 14' 'c I S-4, W E KV-i J x LET'S SEE HOW MUCH HAIR I CAN CUT OFF!! ol Ward Scott - ll tries to undo the damage done by g Eric Pierron - ll Grandmother after the late night printing session to beat yearbook deadline.

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.

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.

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 haunted spots, like Sara Jane Road, or the possessed house in Nederland, and nothing gets you through a boring night like a few thrills. lf being scared isn't your bag, maybe heading out to the drag is. For many, 184 riding up and down Nederland Avenue and looking at each other is the thrill of their lives, or many at least es: t h e i r nights. Of course, there are certain needs that have to be met for a successful cruising session. For instance, there should be at least two people in the car, but don't load d o w n with too people, as this wards off certain people you might otherwise get to meet.Also, make sure that everyone in your car is of the same sex, as this tends to attract those of oppositesex. Last of all, make sure th is alwa s some person with you who brave the rain, cold, or gloom of nigh' get out and pump gas. Otherwise, 1 cruising session could turn out to unsuccessful. Successful or not, cruising is one s way to beat the boredom blues.

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 gettotalkf' 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 to the 'Offenders' says Eric Pierron - ll "I think I'II listen to the 'Pig ChiIdren,' that should drive Grandma crazy." .1 I' I :gray , ,Y ' 47- V' E2 , 1 :,,P' ,g-2:1 tm.

So at last you open that final book in your stack and glance at the clock.

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 senior year. 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 1972. 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 school.

ACU LTY 196 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 fans. 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 laryngitis. 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.

ARSITY OOTBALL 201 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 athlete. 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 through practice. 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. - Scot Flanlgan g pas- W 'Y v- - W " T f 1-us' ' , rg' , I-11 .J- IQ- 17 Qf 0 Q ssl, qp I, --'--'M 1-H--fffma, .md-force-.t,.1aM,.,a.,a.a:4wMWM.l.wA,-Mswvx,..-.wa-no ,6 ,, g I W I MN, A ii. ---ff-- -- ,fqwfg-,.1'Lij:27 '53 t V Q., . 1 , V H r 4 ' . s ' 1 I ,L Qj fgh . 1 j A.

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 1 -11. 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- Tourney Trophies. 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- Tourney Awards. 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 OLLEYBALL 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.

OLLEYBALL 208 Cross-Country Runners Train WE... - C... 12 to Jack Cowan ll at the cross country tra Long distance team needs stamina, concentration ....a.lw..m...Gn,i. school. ' - Cross-country in the most enduring of all track events. lt is run on various types of terrain, such as hills, streams, and dit- ches. Each of these obstacles add difficul- ty to the run. The teams consist of seven runners and are made up of varsity and junior varsity track students. The girls' teams have slightly different rules, such as their distances are shorter than the boys, two miles instead of three. Endurance and stamina play a major part in the success of the cross-country run.- Cross-country running takes a team ef- fort. Each participant must strive for his or her very best. Practice for such a vigorous event re- quires hours of training. Many runners train by over-running the distance re- quired at a meet. Also conditioning and stretching of muscles is a must, so that one does not develop cramps during the run. Once cross-country is over each athlete begins training for the track season, since it starts later in the year. Each of these athletes begin different types of training for various events. - Scottl Flanagln HOW ARE WE DOING, COACH - Coach David Hill and C. J.

The Yellow Jackets simply fell under the tough schedule and the new Beaumont schools Central and West Brook to finish 11-16 on the year and 3- 7 in district. The team started on a promising note by upset- ting 4A Power Silsbee at the Tiger's home court 47-46, but ended disasterouly at home with a final district game loss to arch rival PN-G, 77-63, With district losses to Beaumont Central, West Brook and the district's Cinderella team Nederland, the Jackets missed the state play-offs for 1987. The biggest district win was against the struggling Vidor Pirates 85-41 at home. The Jackets however managed to take third place in the Cypress-Fairbanks Tournament with upsetting wins over North Houston powerhouses McCullough, Cy-Fair, and Conroe. The Jackets were picked to loose to Conroe in the final game. In the Yellow Jacket Classic the varsity finished in last place.

ASKETBALL 213 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 Jackets offense. 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 place trophy. 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 next tournament that the Jackets visited was Clear Creek 58.55 Orangefield 70.40 High Island 62.27 Kountze 56.34 Lincoln 64.44 West Orange-Stark 66.62 Little Cypress Meuriceville 44-38 Kountze 70.40 Johnson Bayou 83.31 Port Neches-Groves 65.36 West Orange-Stark 56.44 Smiley 46-40 Lincoln 73.36 West Orange-Stark 71.37 Hardin Jefferson 61.40 Forest Brook 53.42 Forest Brook 58.48 Little Cypress-Mauriceville 73-52 Kountze 61.35 Port Neches-Groves 60.42 Central 62.46 West Brook 61.47 Vidor 95.20 Nederland 76.26 Port Neches-Groves 70.53 Central 71.31 West Brook 69.54 Vidor 76.22 Nederland 79.24 21 4 ASKETBALL 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 Mark Honea.

In 1986 the tracksters were led by Kary Vincent - 12 who returned this year to defend his state finalist title. Kary Vin- cent finished first in the 100 meters at the district 22-5A meet in Port Arthur. Vincent' also finished third in 200 meters. However, due to a hamstring injury, Vincent failed to qualify for another trip to the state meet. The injury came during the race at regionals in Pasadena. Overall, TJ finished third in District 22-5A thanks to strong efforts in the running events to pass Vidor with a total of 110 points. West Brook won the district meet. The 1600 meter relay team of Marshall Williams - 12, La- John Wilson - 12, Herbie Anderson - 12, and Randolph Brooks - 12, finished second with a time of 3:17:12. In the 200 meters Randolph Brooks - 12 finished second with a time of 21.58 and qualified for the regionals. In the 800 meters, Marshall Williams - 12, finished second with a time of 1:57:4, and LaJohn Wilson - 12 finished second in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 38.65. Both Williams and Wilson qualified for regionals.

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 tourney. 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. Martin Mayon 224 Ga?

Q 3 's I .Q -I Sack to the baseball basics ew coach, Rogers, lends team a hand and plan The team started off with a hit. Their district mes were played sensationally well, said ke Rogers, new head coach. Rogers had a I to do with the players. "Mike did an ex- lent job with the team," says Coach iumann. "I-Ie worked well with the seniors. 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 im pitchers. Kenny Livingston made a hit with Rogers no taught him a new pitch to add to his list. A 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- munity college. 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 continued." 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. Kar1ssaMoreI 'BLM 225 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.

" ' V ' ..e..,,m.,,w-on-Assam ASEBALL Autograph i ?7xS'K'OOJ QQ All Strung Up and Strung Out 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.

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- .W it '! JUST A FEW MORE DAYSl - Wendy Jackson - 11 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 stated laughingly.

ONE STEP CLOSER - Sandra Mitchell - 12 happi- ly receives her cap and gown from Homeroom teacher Mr. Taylor, as she awaits the time she can wear lt. 269 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 find it. 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 Q l'VE GOT IT - Michelle Usey - ll ducks while DOUBLE DlVlN'! - These Thomas Jefferson Robert Holton - 12 slams the ball across the net to students show how to really cool off with a friend. a friend.

Jeff Jackson - 12 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." ,J AM l DONE YET? - Best buddies Gretchen Vaughn - 12 and Kathy Stockton - 12 bake in the rays of the August sun while enjoying the latest tunes on the radio. While the determined sunbathers con- tinue to soak in the sun, the surfers decide to hit the waves and hang ten. However, Craig Keene - 12 says, "l don't plan to surf in the suds like most great surfers do, 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 shore. Whether it's romantic interludes, gorgeous tans, or just a good time you're looking for, the beach is the place to be. So get your doctors excuses or wait until the weekend and head for the shore where good times, friends and sand is in store. - Shannon Huebel, Madelyn Monk, and Chrissy Cockrell continued 'CEE 271 cu an't Catch 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. GIMME FIVE - Toni Fontenot - 12 shows her ex- citement at the commencement exercises but Kyle Hayes - 12 seems to be involved in a meaningful conversation with Clayton Hearn - 12 and doesn't seem to notice Toni's gesture. 272 The end of school marks a rest for some and the beginnings of a quest for others. Be it sum- mer vacations, jobs or summer school, students are glad to get the long, awaited break! - Lucian Adams A LITTLE MUD NEVER HURT ANYONE - Alan Weeks - 9 and Brad Burtalo spend their vacation time at Alan's camp in Kirbyville. When the last check day award is given and the orange juice and doughnuts are consumed, every Jour- nalism ll senior slowly makes his way to room 111. For most seniors, the year is 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. u - Shannon Huebel Caught Catching Up! r' 1. wing? 4 v Xa-- .
