y America held hostage?
By Shirli Sensenbrenner
Yearbook Staff Writer
United States foreign policy has been dramatically affected
within the past months. Militant students overtook the U.S.
Embassy in Iran and took 50 Americans hostage. While the U.S.
was still debating over this, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan.
These events have created many problems for the Carter adminis-
On November 5, 1979, the U.S. embassy in Tehran was overtaken
and the occupants held hostage. They remained inside those walls,
with the exception of women and blacks who were released. The
students wanted to trade the 50 Americans for the former Shah of
Iran, who was in the United States after being
exiled from his country. Iran had undergone a
revolution in which the -1 religious- tradi-
tionalists, led by the Ayatulloh Khomeni
ousted the Shah's pro-western, modernizing
government. The new government is ex-
tremely nationalistic and anti-American.
While the U.S. was involved in seeming the
release of the hostages, the Soviet Union
invaded Afghanistan. In the last week of the
decade, Soviets overran the country, excuted
the president, and set up their own govern-
ment , never thinking the world would protest.
But the United States and other nations were
outraged. This crisis, which may lead to a new cold war, is claimed
to be the world's worst since Hitler's invasion of Poland. The U.S.
has retaliated by cutbacks in grain sales and other trade, a pending
boycott of the 1980 Olympics, and consideration of reinstatement of
the draft to build up strength in the ground forces of this country for
possible use in any conflict evolving from this situation.
These crises brought an uneasy end to the 1970's and a new look
for the future foreign policy of the U.S.
One of the brighter incidents of the hostage situation was the
cloak and dagger episode involving the Canadian govemmentfs
embassy in Iran and a hand full of American embassy
employees. It seems that during the seize of the American
embassy by rnilitent Iranians, some of the employees fled
through a rear exit and ran to the near by Canadian embassy
building. These people were secretly hidden by Canadian
officials until necessary papers could be make up to allow these
people to leave Iran under the cover of being Canadians.

John Paul discovers the world
By Maryam Ili!
Among all the intemational crises of
1979, there was one world world leader
who triumphed in imifying people of all
nations and religions. In a miraculous
world tour, Pope John Paul II visited
Mexico, Ireland, the United Sates, and
his native Poland. The Pope attracted
and hear his inspiring words. In his
messages John Paul II spoke of the
importance of human rights, his belief
in the traditional Catholic values, and
his view on many important world
affairs. While in the U.S., the Pope
travelled bo Boston, Philadelphia, New
York, Des Moines, Chicago, and
Wahington D.C. His visit was high-
lighted by mases in Sxea Sadium, on
President Carter at the White House.
Pope John Paul II's charisma was
refreshing, and the world welcomed
him for what he was, a natural leader
they had searched so long for.

Inflation. Recession. We have
all heard of these words and are
familar with their effect. They
affect everyone in our society,
including high school students.
Many students at THS have suf-
fered a loss of some form or
another from the declining eco-
nomic situatuion of our country.
The problems that we have had to
face range from our jobs to higher
prices of all products. Teenagers
make up a large part of the con-
sumer body, spending millions of
dollars every year. Vldth the con-
start increase of prices, our na-
tional economy may suffer a se-
N vere blow from the loss of our
Many students at Tl-IS hold down
a part-time job after school and on
'J . 'Y ff, f .. ww
Prices take a hike
weekends. The money ac-
cumulated from these various jobs
are used to buy clothing, records,
automobiles, or just to go out and
have a good time. This money has
recently diminished because of
inflation. Most of these students
that do work, work on an hourly
basis. The average earnings for a
part-time employee is minimum
wage, or 53.10 an hour, although
many workers earn considerably
less than -that figure. The law
states that the employer must pay
eighty percent of minimum wage
to those employees under the age
of eighteen. Snce employers can
not cut a worker's salary by wage
decrease, many do shorten the
number of hours that one works.
This happened to a great deal of
the students that are a member of
the working force. One such exam-
ple of this is told by Senior, Mike
Howe. Mike states, "A few months
ago I was told that I would be
working only three or four hours a
week. The reason was, that the
company had to cut back on ex-
penses." Ten dollars is definitely
not enough to meet the needs of a
teenager in today's society. As one
can now see, students' jobs are
greatly affected bythe economy of
Rising prices also contribute to
many problems faced by the stu-
dents. Inflation has made the cost
of products skyrocket through the
roof. If a guy wants to take a girl
out on a Saturday night, it will cost
him, at the very least, six dollars
for tickets to a movie, two bucks
for something to eat, and two
more for gas. Most record albums
cost almost eight dollars and eight
track tapes are more expensive.
The price on clothes is un-
believeable. It is hard to find a
pair of decent jeans for less than
twenty bucks. Money is getting
harder to come by and with prices
increasing, students have restored
to doing without some of lifes
Tragedy at Riverfront - 11 dead at WHO concert
On December 3, 1979 one of the
worst tragedies in Ohio's history
occured. ll persons were trampled
to death while attempting to enter
the Riverfront Coliseum, to hear
the rock group the Who The
concert was sold out and officals
blame general admission seating
as the factor leading to the those 11
deaths. Personnel at the Coliseum
say it started when the crowd
began pushing through a small set'
of doors which was not large
enough for that size of crowd.
Along with the 11 deaths there
'were many other people severly
injured by the crowd of young
people trying to get in to hear the
rock group perform.

A major issue in the United
States today, is whether or not we
should participate in the 1983
Olympics in Moscow. Some of our
options include: going as usuall:
boycotting them, or moving them.
I-Iere, various THS students ex-
pressed their thoguhts on the issue
and what they think should be
done about it.
DAN SZAFRANSKI- We
shouldnt go. As a country we
ought to stand behind our Presi-
dent. The government comes
before our athletes.
TODD POWELL- The govern-
ment shouldn't control our athletic
programs such as the Olympics.
All countries going to Moscow
should have one thing in mind:
and that is the sports themselves.
MR. ALLEN RICHARDS- No
matter what choice we make it
will be wrong. I think the Olym-
pics should be held at a permanent
site in Greece. This year I don't
feel, unless every country
boycotts it, it would influence
Russia at all. I really feel that the
Olympics should be set apaprt
from politics. There should be
some arrangment in which indi-
vidual athletes decide whether it
is right for them to go.
MARK SHUMP- It's a matter
of priorities. World Peace is the
most important thing. Russia is
violating the world peace so we
shouldn't contribute to the cause
by going. I think we should or-
ganiae a "Free World" Olympics
this year for those athletes who
have already trained for years.
DIANE MILLER- I think that
for now we should postpone the
Olympics. Theres always a
chance that everything will be
enter political field
With the invasions of the Soviet
Union into Afghanistan, an increasing
amout of pressure fell on the shoulders
of President Carter to take some kind
of action in retaliation to the Soviet
threat. Therfore, in mid-January, the
President announced that if the Soviet
troops were not pulled out of
Afhanistan within a month, the United
states would try to have the 1981
Stunmer Olympics moved from Mos-
cow, where they were scheduled to
take place. If this relocation was not
possible, the President wanted the U.S.
to boycott the Summer Games entire-
ly, and encoiuaged other nations to
join them in the boycott.
An American boycott alone would
not impose a significant threat to the
Soviets, and it was necessary for the
U.S. to gather the support of many
other nations in order to make the
boycott effective. To gain this support,
the President set up a committee to
investigate the options the U.S. had,
i . ,A . other than a boycott. Finding a new
host city for the Games was an alter-
native but it was extremely difficult
because of the limited time in which to
do so. Other options included holding
separate events in different countries,
and postponing the Games for a year.
President Carter's announcement
produced a mixed national response,
but overall , the American people were
in favor of the Presidents actions.
Many of the Olympic athletes also
stood behind the president, feeling the
country needed to take a stand against
the Soviets. Others felt that politics
and the olympics should not be mixed,
and they deserved to compete after
working so hard for the chance to go to
American business would also be
affected by the Presidents decision
with many corporations having mil-
lions of dollars invested in the promo
tion and marketing for the situation. It
was apparant the lim Olympic Games
would not simply be thought of as a

Gvery year the personality of a high
school is determined to a large extent
by the citizenship and attitude of the
senior class. This year's senior class
and the Student Council must accept
much of the credit for the strong,
positive, leadership and influence it
holds over the remainder of the student
body at Troy High School.
The faculty and administration do
appreciate the opportunity to provide
an exceptionally high standard of
learning in a healthy, educational
climate. This is a tradition at Troy,
and we hope that each sicceeding
senior class grasps the leadership role
as has the Class of 19111.
I, as the Principal of Troy High
School, am especially pleased by the
overall successes of our student body.
This year we have reinstated the
musical, which, I am certain, will be a
Our JVS students have continued to
do an exemplary job at the Upper

have made many worthwhile contribu-
Once again, our band was highly
ranked at the State Fair, and the
Industrial Arts and Home Economics
students brought home more than their
share of contest trophies.
The Balance won national honors
and continues to remain one of the top
school newspapers in the nation.
Our art students, as always, have
displayed an amazing amount of talent
this year, much to the delight of art
lovers throughout our community.
Our athletics, always an important
segment of Troy High School, have
excelled in Cross Country, Soccer and
Wrestling this school year, and we are
looking forward to successes in many
of our spring sports.
We, the faculty, congratulate the
student body of Troy High School for a
job well done in the true tradition of

Jingle, Jingle, Jingle. The sound of
the keys represent a busy man running
around the halls trying to do every-
thing from finding substitute teachers
to running the T.H.S. night school
The man attached to these keys is
none other than Mr. Conard. One of
Conard's many duties is trying to find
substitute teachers - which has been a
big problem this year at Troy High
School. "Teachers aren't easy to find
around Troy," said Mr. Conard, " and
for S30 I see why."
Another issue at Troy which Mr
Conard had something to say about is
the elevator. He feels that the elevator
is a "good idea for handicapped peo-
ple, however there isn't anybody that
can use it at the presem time because
of the electrical problems that need to
be worked out with the state of Ohio.
When asked to comment about the
1980 school year he said "It was better
than last year." He implied that the
whole student body displayed a tre-
mendous amotmt of leadership and
Mr. Conard agreed with Mr.
Fletcher that the Saturday School con-

First year Assistant Principal Rob-
ert Fletcher apparently thinks things
at Troy High have changed this year.
He feels that the overall attitude is
good and he is pleased with the amount
of leadership the Senior claw has
displayed. When asked what the big-
gest problem this year has been he
replied people are concemed more
with 'I instead of USE But if the 'I'
instead of 'US' concept was really
dominate one of the best out-growths of
this years' disclipline program was the
Saturday School program which em-
phasize the individual taking the re-
sponsbility for his or her own actions.
Penalities for individual inap-
propriate behavior are dealt with set
polices and procedures, the severities
of which result in the a Saturday
School or expulsion program. Saturday
School took the place of school sus-
pension which according to Mr.
Fletcher was not effective. Saturday
School "was nice if you didn't have to
do it, however it was better than an out
of school suspensiong they are good for
what the purpose is."

Dr.Robert Becker, seated, guides the Board of Education personnel in the daily management of the Troy Schools. Along
with Becker are ll-rl John McCoy, Raymond "Pete" Lawrence, Michael Barnhart, Jo Gamblee and Aldon Haines. See
the story below for some of the problems these people have to solve daily.
Troy Board ponders future
Declining emollment, double digit
inflation, fixed revenues, tax payers
revolts, Title IX, leaking buildings,
energy shortages, tax rollbacks, ERA
and the ABC's -these are just a few
of the things the Troy Board and its
personnel have to worry about. Ned-
less to say, these things keep Dr.
Robert Becker, superintendent of the
Troy schools busy.
The daily management of the entire
school system may seem quite
smooth to the disinterested outsider,
but the successful management of a
system the likes of Troy's is quite
complex. Board personnel, if they
could get a clear picture from the
State on the Equal-Yield plan, have
trouble putting plans into effect be-
cause of the constant change and
turmoil created in Columbus.
Overall, the Board has been fairly
successful with this delicate balanc-
ing job, but that doesn't mean they
will be able to do it in the future. In
fact, there is a feling that the schools
will have to go to the voters and peole
of Troy to get an increase in their
funds if the schools are not to go the
same route as many other schools in
Generally speaking, the various
building principals do their budgeting
and plan for their own needs and then
submit these requests and needs to
the central office people. Sometimes
things are cut back and sometimes
they are not. From all indications,
however, this year will be a lean one
for the schools. Cutbacks up and down
the line will aparantly have to be
made next year. Where they will be
made is still an unanswered question.
One plus in the favor of the central
office is the quality of the people who
make up the Board of Education.
This past November there were
some changes in the make-up of the
Board. Dr. Stan Vorpe, president of
the Board for many years, stepped
down from that position. Elected to
the Board were Fred McCon-
nell, former Troy teacher, and HY.
Robert Baird. Baird was chosen to
the presidency of the Board.
Put all of this together with good
building principals and assistants,
good department heads and an ex-
cellent teaching staff and you have
the makings of a good system.
The students of Troy have that
bright spot to look forward to in the

reasons for being at Troy and their

pretty well behave themselves when
they come through the line," she said.

Newton retires after 21 years
GN ever heard of pizza before
By Gerilynne Buechter
"Bertha who? Never heard of her."
This would have been a normal re-
sponse of any T.H.S. student when
questioned about the existence of a
Miss Bertha Newtong yet, Miss New-
ton, unknown to the students, was very
necessary for their existence. Sie su-
pervised the preparation of thier
lunches, her official title being, Direc-
tor of Food Service.
This year, 1979-HJ, is Miss Newton's
retirement. She first came to Troy in
1958, the same year the present Troy
High School opened its doors. She
arrived from Graham Consolidated
where she had been a Home Ec.
Before Miss Newton actually retired
she made some comments about her
many years at Troy. She remarked on
the changes in the high school since
her arrival, saying, "There are a few
more students now, not many more,
but a few more. There were about nine
hundred when I came here." she also
said, "We had an a-la-carte where they
now play the music." She explained
that there was a storeroom where the
a-la-carte is now. In questioning her
about the change of food she laughed,
t'You never heard of pizza then."
Miss Newton also said they never
had to close the high school down
because the cafeteria could not oper-
ate, however, once there was a flu
epidemic and, "We had to shut down
the entire school system." Sie went on
to say this was the result of extensive
illness at Van Cleve which included
many cooks. Thus, the students had a
Suprisingly enough T.H.S. was once
visited by prominent VIPS. Miss New-
ton recalled when Arm Landers came
here. "It was a dirmer for five hundred
and it was nineteen below zero. I
thought it would be cancelled but it
wasn't and everyone showed .up." She
also stated that, "T.H.S. was visited by
such national and state celebrities as
Phyllis Diller, Lowell 'I'homas, Hemy
Youngman, Bob Braun, and Marion
Yes, it is highly probable that Miss
Newton had and has many other such
stories to tell. Yet, like the freshmen of
1958, the freshmen of 1981 will never
hear them, for Miss Newton is now not
only obscure she is gone.

dian staff consists of Bob Supinger.
George Gurklies, Edith Gillis, Ernie
Althoff, Robert Morrison, Howard
Walters, Dorothy Supinger, and Joyce
Conley. These eight people are what
keeps all areas of the high school
Because they do most of their work
during classes, before and after school,
nobody really knows how much they
really do contribute to the school. Bob
Supinger said that the hardest and
most time consuming job they have is
getting the school back into shape after
the summer break. This consists of

MENFRESHMEN ' ENF E ESHMEN b'RESHM SHMENFRESHM ' ENFRI
By Vonnie Grenert
The freshman class of 1979-Ili came
bouncing into THS with a large class of
442. Although it is a large class, it is
filled with some excellent individuals.
Out on the academic area, there are
many standouts and there is always a
long honor roll and principal's list for
them. Many of the teachers who teach
freshmen classes or who have
freshmen in their classes say that they
are "outstanding students."
Out on the sports field the freshmen
teams are also excelling. The
freshmen football team ended a fine
season with a 5-2 record. They, like the
varsity squad, fell to arch-enemy Cen-
terville, and also to Stebbins-Spinning
Hills. The freshmen basketball team
has had a nm of bad luck this season,
but most of the players are looking
forward to a good season next year on
the reserve squad. There are also
many freshmen competing on the gym-
nastics, wrestling, track, baseball, and
other various teams. V
Just starting out at THS, the
freshmen were introduced to many
new and different things. They had
many opportunities to join clubs such
as th 0.1. Club, A.F.S., the Science
Club, Future Homemakers of America
and many more. They were also ex-
posed to the big E.S. 1Earth Science! 1.
Earth Science is a required course for
all Freshmen, and most said it was
their "favorite class"1l-la, Ha! J. They,
just like the rest of the student body,
were subject to the new penalty of
Saturday School . When questioned
about it, most thought it was a fair and
When asked about their freshmen
year, many said it was, "alright", or
"ok." Jeff Demaree had a unique
answer. He replied , "It was fine, but I
hate to see all of those cute Senior girls

A visitor to T.H.S. on March 12, would
most likely think he'd taken a trip back
in time. On this date the Seniors official-
ly began the countdown to the end. They
dressed up in their fifties attire, girls in
bobby sox and saddlesg guys in rolled up
jeans and greased back hair. Senoritis
spread throughout the 1980 class making
them finally realize the end was truly
near and this was just the beginning of

the class of 1981. The Seniors should be
very proud for all their hard work and

Ecology Day helps city and seniors
By Usa Slkey
Canoeing down the river, wash-
ing fire trucks, picking up trash -
these are just a few of the many
jobs that seniors have the choice
to partake in on the annual
Ecology Day is what accually
was developed to replace the trad-
itional Senior Skip Day. The adj
ministration figured that this was
a way to give the seniors a day off,
but at the same time keep every-
one out of trouble.
According to Mr. Love the most
popular of all the choices has been
going to Treasure Island, getting
into canoes and going up and down
the river picking up litter that had
been dumped into the river water
and on the banks.
Going to Bruckner Nature Cen-
ter and picking up trash in the
very popular choice for many sen-
iors. Some of the other jobs of-
fered are going to the fire nation
and washing fire trucks, cleaning
up the P3535 and Playgmrrds,
while cleaning up the football field
and the stadium are also biggies,
as is seting up the chairs at the
arena for graduation. No matter
what job a senior is assigned,
there are usually no more than a
couple of hours of work involved.
After the job is done, the students
are free to do as they please for
the remainder of the day.
The 'Ecology day arrangements
are made by the Senior Cabinet.
They call the various places in the
communuity setting up the times
and getting the instructions that
are neded. Each Cabinet member
is then assigned a particular place
he or she is to be with a crew of 20
or so studneets.

other senior teachers, helps out

On behalf of the faculty of Troy High School, I would like to offer 5,
this toast to you, the graduating class of 1981 - and I say
"Cheers" to all those things which are ordinarily toasted - your
very good health, your continued success, good times, fair 'f
weather, and to your rapidly emerging adulthood. 'x'
None of us, whether student or teacher, knows what the future 00
holds for him, but I know what I would wish for you. Because you
are flesh-and-blood creatures, I wish you earthly joys - the cool ,Q
wind in your hair, the smell of fresh baked bread, and the touch of 3,
loving hands, Because you are reasoning creatures, I wish you 3.
spiritual joys - pride in your accomplishments, faith in yourself 2
and in your fellow man, peace of mind. 'f
I wanted so much to finish this toast on a poetic, inspirational 'f
note, one which would express my feelings for all of you, and I 020
discovered that so many good phrases seem to have been used in oo
show business - "Thanks for the Memories," "I'm so Glad We ,xg
Had This Time Together," and this one: 3, ppp, g
'tI've grown accustomed to your face. .XO f
You almost make the day begin. X , QQ
I've grown accustomed to the tune, you whistle night and noon, 'X' ,I ll

Fellow classmates, Faculty, and Guests,
0 Four years ago we came to the high school as a usual, 0:
o loud freshman class, rebelling against you, the faculty, of
, because you represented authority. But, as the years went .J-
, on, we realized you wanted to do more than to dictate, you A,
. wanted to contribute. To a bunch of kids of whom you knew 0
nothing, you were willing to contribute parts of yourselves,
willing to contribute yom' experience towards our maturity, 'f
0 your knowledge towards our understanding. I am glad to 'f'
o say your contributions were not given in vain. We learned 0:0
Q to think, to reason then to explore. We often became 0,0-
, frustrated or bored, so you sought new outlets. J..
. And now as graduation approaches we receive many 3,
cards, gifts, and many good wishes. Everyone con- .29
' gratulates us on making it through twelve years of school. 2
' After evaluating our effort in those twelve years, maybe we 'f'
should turn and look at the effort you, the faculty, put forth. 'x
o We have accomplished one success, while you have 0
, accomplished 341. Years from now we may forget your oxo-
, faces, your names, or maybe even the lessons you taught ,
. us. We but we will never forget the most important lesson O
we learned - which is how to learn, how to reach for O
' knowledge, and therefore, how to grow. So now we would 2
' like to tum and to thank and congratulate you, the faculty, 'x
for your success with us the, the class of 1980. W 0

What takes 2,000 gallons of
ice cream, globs of topping,
lots of whipped cream, nuts,
and about 60 Seniors? The
Worlds Largest Ice Cream Sun-
dae that will be built by the
Troy High Seniors and spon-
sored by the Friendly Ice
Cream Corp. The sundae will
be built June 8th as a part of
the many activities that will be
going on during the Troy Straw-
berry Festival. The project is
being coordinated by Ray
Perez and David Pickering
with the help of Mr. Love.
The Senior Cabinet will head
the captains and they will have
four to five other members on
their teams. In order to make
the choosing of these members
fair Seniors had the opportuni-
ty to sign up, by filling out an
entry form, so that eveybody
has the opportunity to get on a
team. Each member of these
teams will get to enjoy part of

prise that Real People might
film the event this is sure to be
an event long remembered by
the Senior class. The event has
been coordinted Friendly man-
agement personnel, Dennis
Roberts, Bruce Perkins, and
other Friendly staff.
The sundae will be built on
the levy ground iight beside the
river, just below the Friedly
Ice Cream Booth. The sundae
will be about 15 square feet in
diameter and will be about 30
feet in heigth. It will hopefully
get into the Genius Book Of
World Records, if between now
and July the record is not bro-
ken by somebody else.
Isn't that alot of wasted ice
cream , you ask? Well, not
really, because not all the ice
cream will be used, only the
part on the outside that is show-
ingwill be consumed. The rest
will be loaded back into a re-

ewconzer on sports scene has winning year right ojj'
Over the summer there was a
new competition added to the list of
girls' sports. After nearly three
quarters of a year of planning, the
final problem was worked out and
girls' soccer officially became a
sport at T.H.S.
With Mr, John Gibbons as coach
everything got underway with
tryouts in August. For two weeks
forty girls competed for a spot on
the team. It was hard work and at
the end everyone thought they had
really accomplished something.
Twenty-two girls were picked and
they barely had time to practice
before their first big game against
Northmont. After a real fight the
score ended up tied, two to two. The
second game against Oakwood also
ended in a 2:2 tie. By this time
everyone was playing well as a
team and they went on to win their
next three games: 4:0 Yellow
Springs, 4:3 over Beavercreek and
2:19 over Trotwood. Luck began to
run out after the Trotwood game.
They lost to Centerville 5:1, North-
mont 4:0, and Oakwood 2:0. These
were partically due to bad weather
conditions and bad luck.
The leading scorer for the team
was Senior Robin Pour with three
goals for the season. Everyone on
the team got to play. This make it
difficult for one person to make all
the goals. There were two other
Seniors on the team, Terry Holley
played wing and Janet Alexander
played a halfback position. Mr Gib-
bons was very pleased with the 3-Zi
2 season and hopes to have a better
season next year. "I would like to
see a bigger schedule, more depth
in some of the positions, and more
ball control." 107

The Troy Men's Golf team had
one of the most wccessful seasons
ever, partly because of the leader-
ship of the Seniors, and partly
from the play of underclassmen.
The Trojans were led by Senior
captain Bill O'Toole, who carried
a 41.33 stroke average and won 13
matches while losing three. In
Western Ohio League play,
0'Toole was 8-1 with a 40.54 aver-
age which landed him on the all
W.O.L. team. Coach Mike Bennett
praised 0'Too1e, saying, "Bill was
dependable this year, not only in
leadership, but also in his scores."
Bennett feels 0'Toole has the abil-
ity to play college golf. O'Toole
was named the team's most im-
proved player and also the most
The second of tlnee seniors this
season is Scott McConnell, who
held a 42.82 stroke average 142.2
WOLJ and won 12 matches while
losing four. McConnell was the low
Troy scorer in the league tom'-
nament, carding a 79. Bennett also
praised McConnell for his leader-
ship and said, "Scott is one of

varsity experience. Swank had a
stroke average of 56 and was 141 in
varsity matches. Bennett ad-
mitted Swank didn't play much
varsity but that he "contributed a
great deal to our program."
The future Troy golf team com-
prises three juniors and two
sophomores. Jim Irvin, a
sophomore, who as a freshman
was named to the All-WOL team,
held down the number one spot for
the Trojans this year with a stroke
average of 40.88. He had a record
of 14-5-1 and copped medalist hon-
ors at the Troy Invitational.
Another sophomore, Tom Mis-
chler, stayed right behind Irvin
with a 41.958 stroke average. Mi
chler had a 11-5-1 record ai
earned his second letter. Benne
spoke of these two sophomor

were very dependable this yea

Young ana' talented Trojan g0b'ers earn tlaira' place in W. O. L.
By Eric Timm
Anmial Staff Writer
The right blend of youth and age
brought success to the Troy High
School golf team in 1979, and also
should insure success for at least a few
more years. Mth three seniors to
provide good leadership, the golfers
concluded the season with one of the
best records of any Troy golf team,
winning thirteen, losing five, and tieing
Golf coach, Mike Bennett, felt that
1979 was a good season for his squad,
better than most would have predicted.
Bennett felt his team was wider-
estimated and that "a lot of folks didn't
think we would do so well." He at-
tributed a lot of the teams success to
the leadership of the seniors: Bill
0'Toole, Scott McConnell and Eric
The Trojans hosted their own tour-
nament at Miami Shores Golf Course,
drawing praise for both the shape of
the course and the way they played.
Troy finished third out of the eight
teams participating and Trojan golfer
Jim Irvin was medalist for the entire
toumament, carding a 73 for the eight-
At the Princeton tournament, cold
weather plagues the Trojans and they
finished sixteenth in a field of twenty-
eight. Irvin shot a 77 to lead the Troy
The Trojans played their most con-
sistant and best golf for two of the most
important matches of the year, the
sectional and league tournaments. At
the sectionals, Troy finished in a tie for
second place out of 15 teams, which
enabled them to go on to the district
toumament. In the Westem Ohio
League Championships, the Trojans
finished again in a tie for second place,
this time with Xenia.
Bennett felt from the start that his
team had the talent to play consistant
golf all year. "I knew they had the
talent," he said "it was just if they
wanted to show it or The Trojans
obviously showed that talent during the
Troy Invitational Sectional, and
W.O.L. Tournaments. We showed our
talent at the right times," Bennett
observed,"The whole team had to golf
their best at the W.O.L. and Sectional
Toumaments, and they showed just
what they had at that time."
Although Bennett will lose almost
half of his team to graduation, he is
optomistic about the future. He feels
he has talented players but in the end,
it all "depends on what kind of team
everyone else has."
Next year 's squad returns four
varsity underclassmen, juniors Jim
Goodall and Anne Dilworth and
sophomores Jim Irvin and Tom Mis-
chler. This should leave Bennett with a
lot of talent for the next few years.
Irvin was an All-W.O.L. Selection his
freshman year and played number one
the whole season, while Mischler also
played on the varsity as a freshman.
Goodall's first varsity letter was
earned his sophomore year, so the
team has a lot of experience accompa-
The 1979 golf season was one of the
most successful ever,and this was
largely due to "old" leaders and con-
sistant play from all team members
when it really mattered.
Even with three graduating, Bennett
feels that the team will remain strong
with his young , but already ex-
perienced players. In the past, winning
golf has been a tradition at Troy , and
with next years youth, the winning
tradition will certainly be around for a
few more years.

light of the year was the win over the

the Trojans went ahead for good which
set off a celebration long to be remem-

Girls disprove popular
f fe L
By Jim Delwiche
Whoever said, "sports are for
men," had never seen the Troy
High School varsity girls volleyball
team in action. The girls under the
supervision of Coach Vicki Felver,
definitely disproved this contention
in their 1979 season. They had an
impressive ten-seven season and
they were named to a fourth place
finish in the Westem Ohio League
But logically the girls had dif-
ficult times. According to the
team's statistics, their 'two most
vengeful opponents were Tecumseh
47-15: 5-153 and Fairmont East 10-
Finfrock had her own ideas about
the total season. "I thought that we
had a pretty good season. I thought
that we could have been a lot better
if we would have worked harder,
but there were a few conflicts."
Finfrock also commented on her
favorite games. "I was most happy
with games that I got the most
serving points in."
The girls recognized their success
through awards. Deb Wicker re-
ceived the most valuable player
award, and the most improved
award went to Diane Glassmeyer.
The reserve girls volleyball team
did not have such a notable season.
Under the coaching of Miss
Wurzelbacher, they experienced a
six-nine season. Nevertheless,
Wurzelbacher was happy with the
girls because they had improved.
She said she had two start with the
basics. "I had only two girls that
had played any volleyball at all."
She went on to say the best game
her girls were in was the Xenia
game. Suprisingly, this game was
not the team's greatest victory 111-
15, 17-153 15-61. Wurzelbacher ex-
plained her reasons for enjoying the
game, "It was good because it was
competitive. It was really a contest
because the two teams were so
She stated that the team's
toughest opponents were Fairmont
East 14-153 4-151 and Wayne 11-15:
15, O-151. Angel Fmfrock, a junior
player, affirmed this idea,
"Tecumseh and Fairmont East
were our toughest opponents.
Tecumseh was pretty good, they
came in second in the W.O.L.
Of course the girls had played
some really great ball. They
walloped Sidney 115-2: 15-51 and
Springfield North 115-33 15-41, for a
commendable overall season.

Meeting Larry Renner at 98
His opponents often met their fate
He'd turn 'em, twist'em,lay them flat
'Iill their skinny shoulders hit the mat.
Then we'd get to 106
And Mrs. Emi would come alive
Watching Dave do things more violently,
Than she lets him watch on their own T.V.
At a hundred and twelve came FA McDade
His moves on the mat were almoa as classy
As his moves in the Sands with his favorite lassie.
The team was looking pretty mean
With Matt Rashilla at one nineteen.
Then he tore up his knee, and he watched on crutches
While Ludwig and Ernst performed in the clutches.
Then in came our wrestler at 126
Who put his opponents in a terrible fix.
'I'he ref would SING as he held up Jim's hand-
"Alexander's Rag Time
Then what should appear at 132
But Finfrock, in shoes of a cute baby blue.
When opponents would peek at his shoes with a grin,
Mck would move quickly, and go for the pin.
At 138 Carnes would take off his shirt
And with this simple movement somehow he'd get HURT!
lhs opponent would smirk, thinking his chance had come.
But old John would recover and pin the poor bum.
At 145 came a Thompson named Kent.
His opponent would, just like a pretzel, get bent.
He said, when asked how he developed such muscle,
"If I'm gonna whip my brother, I've just got to hustle!"
At 145 we also had Stu
And he tumed his opponents black and blue.
But Athey, hirrself, would sometimes turn RED
When hearing his Mom screaming "STU-BREAK HIS HEAD! !"
Then at 156 came old red-head Doug.
He'd pin his man quickly, then saayy with a shrug.
"Because of my father, my victories grow-
He's head of the Parents Club, didn't you know?"
At 167 our team had some fire.
The crowd would just roar when they saw Darbyshire.
He'd move on his man, stuff him like a salami,
Then claim his big prize-A big hug from his Mommy.
At 175 Greg Stubbs would appear
At his boyish grin, the spectators would cheer.
He'd grunt and he'd groan and his man he'd bombard
Then he'd shuffle and smileand say "Shucks, its not hard"
Then Dave Reed would run Eercely on to the mat.
I-Hs opponent aat 185 would go SPLAT.
Dave would shout-"I sure hope our whole team goes to State,
"cause my Dad sells motel rooms at a really cheap rate."
Then up to the line came our heavyweight hunk
The crowd would go wild, screaming "GO GET 'EM, KUNKI'
So Jeff went an got 'em, and he knocked 'em dead.
And he got to the Districts, like Coach Bemiett said.
There were rnany bumps ana' bruises
along the way, but the Trojans finalb

' And weaking of coaching, you knew at a glance
Thats ours had real class, with his soldier-like stance.
Vlhth his hands on his hips, and his coat tails pushed back,
He'd say to the ref "Come over here Mac"
He'd question a call in a gentleman's way
And set an example for the Scarlet and Gray.
He helped them in sorrow, he shared in their joys.

Youth and success usually do not mix
when it comes to sports. The lack of
success on a young team is due largely
to inexperience. Eliminate the inex-
perience plus add a touch of talent and,
Voila! You have a really good young
team, the Troy wrestling team. Vlhth a
mix of seniors and underclass, the
wrestling team realized many goals
'never achieved by any Troy wrestling
Tteam before them. Among these
iachievements were uhighest ever" fin-
ishes in both the Troy Invitational and
the Western Ohio League lW.O.Ll.
Second year head coach, Mike Bennett
had nothing but praise for his young
team. "The overall improvement of the
team was tremendous," he said, citing
-the vast improvements made by his
wrestlers over the course of a year.
l"We've benefitted from the tough quali-
ty of competition we have faced," added
Although the competition had been
tough, it did not seem to bother the
young Trojans. In their first big tour-
nament, the Miami Valley Wrestling
Totunament, Troy finished sixth as John
Carnes received a special award for
outstanding wrestler of the tournament.
After a second place finish at the Troy
Invitational, the Trojans placed an im-
pressive third at the St. Xavier Invita-
At the league meet, the Troy squad
finished second, highest finish ever by a
Troy wrestling team. Troy had three
individual W.O.L. championsg John
Carnes, Doug Thompson, and Todd
Darbyshire. Larry Renner took home a
second place and Nick Finfrock and
Dave Reed added two third place hon-
ors, while Greg Stubbs and Dave Ernst
finished fourth. The Trojans had some
difficulty at the sectionals and had no
champions. They finished sixth overall.
However, five wrestlers made it through
to the districts. Renner, Carnes,
Darbyshire, Thompson, and .Jeff
Klmkleman all qualified for districts.
John Carnes 1138! finished second at the
district, qualifying for the state meet for
the second time. Doug Thompson 11555,
and Todd Darbyshire 41673 finished
third, and also qualified for the state
Larry Renner 4983 and John Carnes
were furthered honored by being
selected to the Journal Hearld-AAA Hon-
or Roll. The future looks promising
indeed for the Trojan wrestling team,
for success will be part of that future.

f'Coaching the Girls Reserve Basketball Team, is like teaching someone
how to read," claimed Coach Emerick.
The team, which won no games this season, ran into many stumbling
Emerick explained that most of the girls had no previous experience in
the game. Some of the better athletic girls didn't go out, and others quit in
the middle of the season. There were also many conflicts in practices which
kept alot of players from coming, such as injuries, sickness, and personal
Emerick also stated that the girls seemed to want to be the best only in
Troy, but needed to want to be the best everywhere. A few of the members
added that not enough people on the team care, and there is a lack of
confidence. When they fthe Basketball team? play a school with a big name
in basketball, they go in with the feeling they have already lost
The Varsity team which won only three games itwo of which were the
same schoolifaced alot of uneccessary problems also.
Coach Cox explained that most of these problems resulted from no
experience among younger players, no heighth, and no teamwork what-
The team didn't really practice much and sometimes not at all. When
there was practice, the girls fought amongst themselves.
Besides having problems on the team, they got no support from the
school. "Nobody cares," complained Varsity player Renee Manwaring
"So nobdy cares. "" A few parents come , to watch now and then, and
students still at school from other activities stop in once in a while, but
thats about it."
On the days of the girls basketball games, no announcement is made over
the intercom and no good-luck wish is given to the players. The girls are
given no recognition in the Pep assemblies. Their team might as well not
be a part of the school.
Although both teams had a bad year as far as winning and support, the
coaches feel the players have learned alot, and have improved since the
beginning of the season. Both look for next year as being much better.

V By Louisa Siepard
The Troy High School's girl's
gymnastics season was quite un-
balanced this year as their record
consiaed of one win out of seven
meets. They were tripped up by
many troubles, the biggest two
being a new coach and the fact that
the team was quite yotmg.
Mth Miss Blacjmore's resigna-
tion , Mr. Steve Gingrich took over
the position as the girl's coach in
addition to his duties to the boy's
team and his help with the Junior
High hopefuls. "We really missed
lVliss Blackmore," states Senior
Cheryl Patton, " but Mr. Gingrich is
leamingf' It took him awhile to get
the feeling of the job but "he helped
alot at the end of the year added
The other thing that caused trou-
ble the fact that the team consiaed
mostly of inexperienced freshmen
and sophomores, with only one jun-
ior, Amy Lyons, and one senior,
Cheryl Patton. The Freshmen and
Sophomores were for the most part
still learning, thus Lyons and Pat-
ten provided the experience , and
the points. Cheryl Patten handled
three of the four events, balance
beam, vault, and floor exercise,
while Lyons was a stand out in the
uneven bars. Patten, however , was
the only one who advanced to a
higher level of competition as she
made it to the Districts. She had
some trouble there, and did not
make it to the State. "It was really
a bummer," comments Cheryl,
"becasue noone was there to cheer
Even though there weren't wasn't
much of a team this year, the future
looks promising as most of Coach
Gingrich's talent is young and
promises to improve.

Lad Trojans Pave Way To Success
Hy Pam Parks
The Troy High School girls track
team paved its way for a suc-
cessful record in dual meets this
season. The team placed third in
the Lima Invitational, ninth in the
W.O.L. League Championship,
and seventh in the sectionals.
The girls were required to com-
pete in fourteen events. These
events included the discus, long-
distance, hurdles, etc. The team
has broken an impressive seven
new school records.
At the awards banquet this sea-
son, Denise Boyer was given the
Most Improved player award. She
took a substantial fifteen seconds
off her running time and her 1110-
meter time dropped considerably.
Debbie Mcker was honored as
Most Valuable. She showed con-
tinued improvement throughout
the season and placed in both the
shotput and discus. Another valu-
able teammate was Christa Boyd,
who placed in four events, and was
reputed as one of the best sprin-
ters. Although injured this season,
she recovered to be one of the
sixteen fastest runners in the
state. Two other assets to the
team were Denise Boyer, long-
distance, and Velvet Black,
Felver stated that there had
been significant improvement on
the team , but due to many in-
juries, she felt that the team fell
short of potential accomplish-
ments. However, Felver is antici-
pating an even better season next
year. She feels that the sophmores
and freshman will make for a
team tough to beat.
When asked who their toughest
over-all competitor had been,
Coach Felver replied that there
were many good track teams, but
she named Centerville and
Trotwood Madison as a few.

"Unlike most sports, in track
the emphasis is on the individual's
effort more than the teams re-
cord," States Herb Hartman, head
coach of the boy's track team.
This makes a difference in how
he approaches his job. It is not a
good season record he pushes for,
but improvement. The individual
improvement brings a winning
team for the end of the season,
when it coluits the most.
Two members have already
competed in state. and are ex-
pected to do even better this year.
Dave Shedloski qualifed last year
in the 400-meter dash while Mike
Boyd qualifed in '78 in the 100-yard
dash. Another member, Mark
Shump, just missed qualifying for
state last year in the H10-meter
Hartman wants to bring in an-
other W.O.L. conference charn-
pionship this this year. The team
has the potential, but the competi-
tion is tougher than Hartman ex-
pected. Along with the league
meet, the team also has to prepare
for the meets leading up to state
First they will compete in sec-
tionals, than the top 4 teams move
on to districts with the top 4 at
districts qualifying for the state
meet. Hartman sets high goals
and predicts good results from
this year's team.
A big asset to this year's team is
the strong distance runners -
Roger Plunkett, Eric Timm, Mike
Crommes, Kent Heck, Drew
Dalton, Paul Dawson, Dan Pick-
ering , and Steve McNamee. This
group showed it's talent earlier
this year when they qualified for
state in Cross Country.
The field events are not as'
strong as running, but should im-
prove as the season progresses. In
the shot-put and disc Dave Reed
and Jeff Kunkleman have the ex-
perience while senior Jim
Delwiche is out for his first time.

Striving For Improvement

Troy High School's English de-
partment has one goal to attain.
That goal is constant improvement.
According to department head, Mr.
Richard Rosen, the English depart-
ment is constantly striving to im-
prove the English courses which
will in turn improve the English
One plan the department has
started is the evaluation of every
student from Freshman to Seniors
at the beginning and end of each
school year for the pm'pose of place-'
ment in com-ses and as an indica-
tion of what can be improved.
"What we have, I feel, are basic,
solid English courses,"stated Mr.5
Rosen, who works with his depart-
ment constantly on the improve-l
ment of all English courses. "Our
English students are ahead of the
state and national norms, and Troy
students'SAT and ACI' norms are
also above state and national
One peculiarity this past year was
the extinction of the Senior Ad-
vanced English course which was
eliminated because of lack of in-
terest. The 19w-8l year will see it's
return but many feel that the re-
establishment of weighted grades
has something to do with that.

Shakespeare is something that will
never change. Shakespearean Liter-

Social Studies. The two words that
bring terror into the hearts of every
student. In the past the reputation
of a boring and somewhat tiring
class was well deserved. But no
longer is that so. Instead of the
traditional book studies and work
sheets to answer, students are
treated to a barrage of simulations,
films, world identification games,
space races, and so forth.
The whole purpose behind the
games is to get the students in-
volved in an interesting activity
while at the same time learn some-
thing. Studies have shown that the
worst way to learn is by listening.
The best possible way to leam is to
actually do something, get involved,
either by games or other interesting
But, Social Studies is not all fun
and games. Much of what is learned
is essential to daily life out of school
. Seniors must read and fill out tax
booklets that gives them a good
taste of what taxes are all about.
Another example is the filling out of
voter registration cards.
All of the activities make up a
very interesting and frm way to
learn an otherwise drab class. Troy
High School is very lucky to have
fine teachers to help us leam and
develop our thinking skills.

What department in the school took
its students to such faraway places as
Cincimiati, Oregon, Maine, and New
Orleans? The answer - the Business
Department. Through the use of prac-
tice sets, the students became part of
business in one of these places and
learned the day to day operations of
the business world. Introduction to
Business Students learned how to app-
ly for a job and fill out the necessary
forms once they have gotten the job.
Accounting I and Accounting Il stu-
dents became part of corporations
such as Quadrosonics and Central Auto
Supplies. Perhaps the class that had
the best job of all was the Office
Practice class. These students were
employed at Pleasure Island, an
amusement part in new New Orleans.
However, there was more to the
Business Department than the prac-
tice sets. Tl1e typing classes learned
a skill that will be important for the
rest of their livesg especially for
Junior term papers and Senior posi-
tion papers! The Clerical Practice
class and Office Practice class per-
formed two service projects. They
typed envelopes for the Red Cross
and the report cards. The Money
Management class learned to take
care of its money and get the best
possible use out of it.

The Art Department at Troy High
School has always had an outstanding
reputation for being one of high quality
and creativity. Many graduates from
Troy have studied at some of the best
art schools in the country and have
gone on to become successful artists -
highly respected in their field. Troy
students have consistently dominated
the awards in the Govemor's Youth
Art Exhibtion and this year, Troy had
four seniors whose works received the
Govemor's Award of Excellence.
These four seniors were Bart Bemus,
Russ Evans, Greg Stubbs, and Laura

Added to the regular art classes this

jVS- A Good
By Kim Thorpe
Yearbook Staff Writer
The Upper Valley Joint Voca-
tional School is open to Juniors
and Seniors of Miami County that
would like to expand their skills in
different areas through courses
not offered at the high school. It is
execially for those students who
don't plan on going to college but
want to have a good chance of
getting a job after school.
Courses ranging from welding to
cosmetology to horticulture are
offered for students to choose
from. However, American His-
tory, American Government, and
one English class is required.
According to Mr. Giangulio,
lJ.V.S. advisor at T.l-l.S.J the
U.V.J.V.S. is an excellent op-
portunity for non-college-bound
students because it "provides Ill
additional choices for an educa-
tion in course selection." The
J .V.S. places 95'Z1 of its graduates
in good jobs, thus giving them a
definite advantage in the job mar
ket. The J.V.S. is a good
portunity because without th
J.V.S. as an option more studen
would drop out of high school
find it much more difficult to fi
a good job.

Broadening their horizons
By Kim Thorpe
Yearbook Staff Writer
Each year the physical and health
education classes expand their
horizons and offer more and better
activities, and this year was no ex-
ecption. These activities included
bowling, ice skating, softball, vol-
leyball, tennis, hockey, wrestling,
basketball, gymnastics, and the ever-
popular square dancing.
Again this year sophomores and
freshmen had either gym or health
every day for the entire nine weeks,
instead of the old way of having gym
and health every other day. Both
teachers and students found advan-
tages in this. The teachers like it
because there is no sharing of facil-
ities so they can just keep their own
equipment set up. Also, they don't
have to keep moving their teaching
equipment from room to room. Stu-
dents like it better because they can
just bring their gym clothes and keep
them there, and also it is easier to
keep track of the day's activitites.
As mentioned, the physical educa-
tion and health classes are expanding
their range of activities for a reason.
As Sohpomore Phys Ed- Health
teacher John Terwilliger puts it, "Be-
cause it is a class everyone must
pass, we try to make it challenging
and interesting." So if you see a
student lying on the floor of the
wrestling room, covered with blood
and scars...relax, it's just the health
classes practicing emergency aid.

T rips and parties
By Mary Ann Lutz
1979-1981 was a very eventful year
for the T.H.S. Foreign Language De-
partment, and they offered a variety of
activities for students to participate in.
In class, the students were involved in
such activities as cooking foods of
foreign countries and pinata parties.
A few students had the chance to be
involved in a very special event. Over
spring break , 33 Sudents' and adult
chaperones flew to Mexico for a vaca-
tion combining frm and learning. They
visited Mexico City, Tasco, and
Aculpoco, where they went shopping,
explored pyraminds, visited govem-
ment buildings and National
cathedrals , watched professional cliff
divers, and went on a yacht cruise.
Mrs. Gretchen Hargis, coordinator
of the trip, felt the trip was "a good
educational experience. The students
had a chalice to put their language
skills to use, but more importantly,
they had a chance to compare two
different cultures. "Everyone involved
thought the trip was a success and it
will be continued in the future. The
trips are open to all students, not
foreign language students only.
Also the Foreign Language depart-
ment sponsored the fourth annual In-
ternational Tasting Party. This year's
theme was Love Around the World .
Students from Gemian, Latin, French,
and Spanish classes brought in food

The Science Department at Troy
High School offers many different
classes for students to take. Science
classes not only educate a student in
a field of study but also help the
student to make decisions and think
things through for himself. The sci-
ence programs offered at Troy High
School include Earth Science,
Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Avia-
tion, and Computer Programming.
Earth Science is a mandatory
class offered to all Freshmen.
Astronomy, Geology Meteorology,
Oceanography, Geography, and
Physical Laws are studied in this
course. This year, new books were
introduced into this department
which placed a modem emphasis on
plate techtonics and Astronomy.
Biology is the science of life. The
'courses in Biology put more em-
phasis on laboratory work than tex-
tual reading. The conclusions of
scientific studies are brought about
by actual participation in labora-
Chemistry deals with chemicals

Math - Challenging,
but Helpful in Cgllege
By Dave Shedloski
Yearbook Staff Writer
According to Troy students, math
courses for the 1979-19111 school year
were a bit more challenging than in
the past. Courses ranging from such
toughies as Essential Math to Cal-
culus were generally tougher and
more troublesome for some stu-
"I feel the course I am taking is
very challenging," stated Senior
Jenni Walsh, who is taking a new
course offered this year - Probabili-
ty and Statistics and Analytic
Geometry. The new course is taught
by Miss Wunelbacher and is gener-
ally for those students who went
through math courses I through IV,
but did not want to take Calculus.
Miss Chavis, the Calculus teach-
er, was appointed the new depart-
ment head taking over for Mr.
Eugene Epperson who retired last
Miss Chavis was also the head of
the Math Club, which has presenta-
tions that explore the many aspects
of mathematics. The Math Club also

The Piqua pep rally was once again a great success!
Emcees Kathy "Sally" Nally and Eric Timm did a great job
of keeping the rally rolling smoothly along and the en-
thusiastic crowd entertained. The pep rally began with the
seniors arriving in Reardon's fire truck and the juniors in
Putney's pick-upg all of them eager to show their Trojan
spirit! The speeches delivered by members of each class
helped to raise spirit and show the support for the T.H.S.
football men. The sundae and balloon contests between thel
competitive classes were also a successg the seniors, of course
coming out on top, with the juniors a close second and the
sophrnores and freshmen trailing far behind. The
cheerleaders kept the spirit rolling by doing their best cheers
and mounts. Then the senior girls presented a "wild and
crazy" skit from Saturday Night Live, and another entitled
"Short People'! Both brought the excitement to the high point
of the rally when Coach Terwilliger delivered his most
inspiring speech, which urged everyone to come to Piqua and
support the Trojans when they would once again defeat the
Indians! The night concluded as the crowd trooped over to the

Homecoming 1980 success
Ellicott weaves magic over festive night
By Nancy Evans
The 1979 Homecoming was an evening
full of anticipation and excitement. The
crowd yelled and cheered and the court
consisting of: Susan Ellicott, Laura Flem-
ing, Amy Heckman, Carol Lyme, Robin
Mack, Sharon Twiss, and Diana Vaughan
circled the stadium in carts driven by
their escorts, Kent Heck, Mark Shump,
John Kroger, Stuart Athey, Victor Block,
Mike Shelton, and Mitch Hoover. Tension
was building as the anxious girls crossed
the field to face their home crowd. Every-
one was delighted as the speaker an-
nounced that Susan Ellicottwould reign as
Troy High School's 1979 Homecoming
Queen. Senior Class president, Raymond
Perez. crowned and kissed the over-
whelmed Susan as Kathleen Moore pre-
sented her with roses. The court and their
escorts followed queen Susan to the tradi-
tional platform where they presided over
the Homecoming football game.
The game started off with a colorful
explosion as the multicolored helium
balloons were set off when the football
was first kicked into the air. There was no
score at the end of the first quarter, and
the lone Trojan score didn't come until the
last of the second quarter. Bob Rohr
completed a ten-yard pass to Matt
Bretland to put the Trojans in the lead, 6-
K lsr '
0. Being penalized on their atempt at a
two point conversion, the Trojans tried a
kick that lmfoitunately failed. Troy was
hoping to go to locker room with the 6-0
lead, but with one minute and six seconds
left, Xenia passed five yards to tie the
score. Their kick attempt also failed. The
Trojans were inspired when the players'
parents came into the locker room to give
them a cheer before the tough second
half. The mighty Trojans almost came
back twice in the second half, but were
unable to get the wanted score. The
impressive Trojan defense held the Wild-
cats to end the game with a 6-6 tie. The
Homecoming festivities concluded on Sat-
urday night with the traditional Home-
coming dance in the gym. Susan and her
escort, John Kalmar, presided over the
fun and exciting dance, entitled "Always
and Forever".xThe Senior Cabinet worked
hard to make the gym pretty, which
helped to make it a most memorable

'momentum of spirit'
Pep rallies do the jot
By Louisa Shepard,
Annual Staff Writer
The gym is dark, the air is tense with
excitement and curiosity... suddenly, the
band crashes into the fight song as the
spotlights circle the still blackened gym. The
players run into the spotligli one by one,
proud to be a part of the team being honored.
Now the spotlight is on Coach Terwilliger who
is saying to the attentive student body,
"We're here to have fim, cheer for, payl
tribute to, and most of all to share in Troy
High-to share in the good we are and the best
we will become! ....
This was just the beginning of one of the pep
rallies held this year at T.H.S. The new style,
coordinated by the cheerleaders, included
band performances, pom-pom routines, flag
routines, the Alma Mater sung by the Senior
choir, and cheers lead by the team members
themselves! The pep rallies started a momen-
tum of spirit through the student body that
carried our teams onto victory!

lthe last home basketball game, you might
lhave thought that T.H.S. was pretty strange,
as these were the Spirit Weeks at Troy High!
The first week included hat day, fancy feet
day, bib day, jersey and jean day, and
Halloween day on the 30th. The second spirit
week included t-shirt and hat day, sweats day,
and scarlet and gray day. Spirit abounded on
these weeks as shown by all of the students

The assembly schedule this year was
quite varied indeed! It ranged from the
annual visit by Mr. Ted Bumiller, who took
us to "South and East Africa" this year, to
the more sophisticated and relaxing Cin-
cinnati Symphony. Along that sophisticated
line came the Drama Club's wacky Christ-
mas assembly featuring the wild and crazy
Saturday Night Live group including the
Lupiners, Lanshark, and the Coneheads!
Another unique assembly , co-sponsored by
the English department, was entitled
"Shakespear's Ladies". A quite "electrify-
assembly was presented by a repre-
sentative from the Dayton Power and Light
Company that involved students and facul-
ty rnembers in demonstrating energy con-
servation. Another informative assembly,
sponsored by the A.F.S. club, featured
exchange students, who presented slides
from their native countries of France,
Denmark, Norway, and from Japan, by our
own Takafumi Hirano.,All of these raised
the spirits of the student body high, but
when combined with the Christmas pro-
gram performed by the choirs and Mr.
Petty, and the orchstra and Mr. Slonaker,
the spirits were raised to a heavenly
height! Yes, the assemblies this year were
quite varied and entertaining, at least
enough to be worth getting out of class for!

"My Fair Lady", by Lemer
and Loewe, was presented last
weekend by audents from Troy
High School. Susan Jackson, as
Eliza Dolittle, starred as the
main character. Her story is
one of a rags to riches, ro-

Professor Henry Higgins. The
play is set around 1920's in
In the begiming of the play

Kim Spraul and Mark LEMAR
By GeriLynne Buechter
George Orwell's play 1984 was a
successful failure. The play,
which delt with a futuristic society
in which most peoples' lives were
monitered by and offered to the
government, was presented at
Troy High School on May 3 and 4.
Due to superb effects and acting
the play was considered a great
success by both the audience and
presenters. Mrs. Zimmerle, the
director, felt that the production
was "terrific" Drew Foster, who
was the student director and who
played a government guard, at-
tributed the play's greatness'to
the superior acting ability of Mark
Lemar, the male lead. Lemar
played Wnston Smith, a man who
rebelled against the totalitarian
government of his society. Foster
"Mark gave everything he
had," said Foster. l'At times he
would stop and go over and over a
difficult part until he got it right.
He gave the extra effort."
Lemar attributed this de-
termination and skill to the fact
that he is never satisfied with
himself and to the fact that the
play was a testing grotmd.
"lt's been a long year, I've had
lost of disappointments. I felt I
never had the chance to show the
abilities I thought I had,"said
LeMar. A'VWth the play, I had the
satisfaction of showing stuff."
Not only was the play successful
because of Lemar, but also be-
cause of the whole cast. As Zim-
merle said, "I feel that they're one
of the most terrifice bunches of
people I've ever worked with.
They were easy to work with."
Yet Zimmerle maintained that
she did have doubts at rehearsal
time. "I never doubted it would be
a successg but during the re-
hearsal, I felt bad when people
didn't come. It's hard to feel
positive from the beginning when
Lemar had the lead in 1984.
everyone else was feeling
negative. But I had to."
Superior lighting also led to the
greatness of the play. Randy
Davis and his lighting crew of
Bobbie Ralston, Paul Speller, and
Daralyn DeCurtis really did good
Davis attributed this to the fact
that "We tthe crewl had to prove
to ourselves we could do it be
cause it was a really hard play to
Russ Evans also did his share
with the play. Evans painted the
sinister portaits of Big Brother,
through which the govemment
could see the action of all its
subjects. These portraits not only
decorated the buildings of the
futere world, but also the play
Zimmerle said that Evans was
"really enthusiastic. He came in
overtime to get the job finished."
Yet, unfortunatley, commerci
ly, the play was a failure. On
nights, the auditorium was bare
a guaiter full. This fact seemed
upset the production crew.
Foster said he was upset a
the audience lor lack of
Lemar also agreed with Fost
A major dissapointment to hi
"was the limited number of peo
who showed up."
Zimmerle attributed the sm
audience to the lack of publicit

Prom takes 'em
After many long nights and
less hours, the Junior Class
roduced what some may call
'one of the most out-standing
om's ever at T.H.S. " The Prom
oers began their journey by visit-
Auntie EM and Uncle Eb's
arm. Here they were overcome
y "Pinkie," "Stinkie," and the
ver-friendly lamb. Through the
armhouse they strolled and were
mmediately blown away by a
werful and spinning tomado.
ey began their trip " Some-
ere Over the Rainbow," which
as the theme of this year's Jun-
or -Senior Prom, by following the
ellow brick road. They followed
's twisting and turning brick
oad into Munchkin land where
hey were surrounded by lollipops
colorful flowers. The next stop
as the Enchanted Forest. Here
Promsters were chased by the
wardly Lion and enchanted by
he Scarecrow and Toto. The jour-
ey cotinues to the witch's Castle.
The only couple that completed
their journey "Somewhere Over
the Rainbow" into the land of OZ
was the King and Queen of this
year's Prom, Ted Rolf and Kim
Wagner. They ascended the steps
of the land of OZ to their throne
where they stood with royal digni-
ty. Prom continued with with Kim
and Ted's solo dance and everyone
continued to enjoy themselves
while sitting at the romantic
candlelit tables. The Munchkins,

By Penny Z5-Hg Alllllllll stiff wrlltlf
In previous years the year-
book staff and the journalism
class have been as separate
as Math and English. But this
year, things were changed.
The two staffs were joined to
combine one clam, a class in
which every student worked
on the newspaper and the
yearbook. The class is under
the leadership of Mr. Robert
Cole and Mr, Michael Ben-
nett. Mr. Bennett explained
the reason for the combined
class. "There was no way I
could do it after school with
my coaching and every-
thing." The combined class is
now called Publications and
is held sixth period.
Each member of the class
is supposed to work on some
section of the yearbook and
turn in two news stories a
week for the paper. Although
more emphasis is placed on
the yearbook because there
are deadlines that have to be
met, The Balance is yet to be
While to many outsiders the
class may appear to be all fun
and games, it requires much
work outside the classroom.
Many hours are spent down
atthe Troy Daily News office
typing copy into the com-
puters and working on
layouts. Many Saturday
momings are also given up to
go down to the news office
and work. All of this is done
on a voluntary basis but it
needs to be done.
Something new that is being
done with the yearbook is that
the format is changing to
magazine style. This means
that there will be articles and
stories to go along with each
section just like in a maga-
zine. The yearbook is also
being sentto competition to be
judged on how good it is.
The Balance, even though it
has not been worked on as
hard as the yearbook, is still
alive. It's just that fewer is-
sues have been put out. This
situation will, hopefully, be
remedied next year when the
classes are to be once again
separated with Mrs. Harriet
Upoff as the new yearbook

'Sudents just have the wrong im-
pression about us.' At least that is the
impression that Todd Thompson, this
year's president ot' Drama Club, gets
from most of the audent body regard-
irg the Drama Club. Thompson aates,
'Most people have the idea we are
either stuck-up or a bunch of tags. We
are just like any other club...maybe.'
Thompson understands misunderstan-
dings and has planned to shatter the
myths that sun'ound the club.
First, the Ikama Club sponsored and
paid for the production of MASH. This
production involved a large number of
'new' people, many of which had never
worked on stage before or even tried
out for a role in a high school play. This
student involvement paid off and peo-
ple caught the 'Drama Fever'. 'I'he
drama department, along with club
members, presented theSecond Annual
Christmas Show. 'The show was writ-
ten and produced for the students. We
tried to do what the students would like
and show that drama isn't all
Shakespeare' commented Todd.
Secondly, the Drama Club has had a
Christmas and Valentines Day party
to initiate and encourage people to join
the club. The club also plans to make
field trips to the 'La Comedia' and
civic theatres in the area to enjoy
watching them and evaluating them.
Plans for a joke contest and Rec
Dance are in order to make students
more aware of the club, and jun for
the fun of it, a 51.98 Plus Tax Male
Beauty Contest is being planned. 'Ac-
tually,' chuckles Thompson, 'the con-
test is to get the guys in the club over
being scared and embarrassed.' A
spring assembly and the play' 194' are
scheduled. Thompson feels that one
good aspect of the club is that it helps
tear dovm the walls between people.
It's really a social club in which people
gather to be themselves and ex-
perience being human. That is why the
club doesn't make limitations on who
can join the club. 'We try to play down
the class distinction bit. We are all
about the same. We jus gotta take off
The members of the Drama Club
have the opportunity to join the Inter
national Thespian Society, a honor
society for those people who are seri-
ous about drama after high school and
who want to become better actors,

The Troy Marching Band had an "ex-
cellent" year. Led by sixteen Senior
members, the Trojan squad took its act
to several contests as well as the half-
time football field. The band did its
usual great job of entertaining the fans
at football games with new ideas, such
as a flag team, and special routines by
its super talented group of majorettes.
But the members worked hard off the
field as well as on it. Before school even
began, the band members were off to
band camp with its usual combination of
hard work and play. After shaping up its
style , the marchers were off to Colum-
bus for the Ohio State Fair Contest.
Under the direction of Mr. Donald
Jenkins, the band received an excellent
rating and were met by excited parents
and friends as they rode triumphantly
into tovm. After school had begun, the
band entered the Marion Local Band
Contest and marched away with three
trophies: first place in Class A Division,
Best Marchhing Band, and Best Music.
The band also entered the Piqua Band
Contest and did another good job.

If a student at Troy High School would
walk up to you and tell you that he or she
were in the orchestra, your first reaction tif
you react at alll would probably be 'What
orchestra?' Well, believe it or not, THS still
does have an orchestra, in a sense.
There have been many changes in the
orchestra due to the small size of the group.
'I'here are only eight members, mostly
Freshmen. The group is an entirely string
orchestra. No attempt has been made to add
woodwinds, brass, or percussion for obvious
reasons of balance. The group, under the
direction of Mrs. Williams, practices as a
group only twice a week. The other three
days are spent in sectionals in which the
students work on the assigned music individ-
Another change concems the music de-
partment concerts. The group did not per-
fonn in any of the concerts this year. The
orchestra did not attend Contest as a group,
nor did any of its members take a piece to
Solo and Ensemble Contest.
While the THS orchestra may not be as
well known as in the past, it is definitely not
obsolete. Hopefully the orchestra will gain in
strength and number and when a member of
the group tells another student that he is a
member of the orchestra, the reaction will be

So, you think that cheerleading is
just standing in front of the stands
looking pretty? Well, according to this
year's crop of cheerleaders, it's a lot of
hard work! "There is a treemendous
amount of self sacrifice and
dedication,"says Mr. Richards, the
athletic director of Troy High. "Not
enough people know what they tthe
cheerleaders! go through."
What Mr. Richards was referring to
was the 4-5 hours a week spent practic-
ing their mounts and cheers. In addi-
tion, they spend countless other hours
baking cookies, painting signs, and on
various other spirit projects.
The goal strived for by this work is,
as Mr. Richards put it, "Leadership
for the student body and players to
participate on an emotional levelg
lalsoi to help the players do as well as
they can on the athletic field."
To aid them in accomplishing this
goal, all of the Troy cheerleaders

Goodies sold well for a
four game season

Annual Staff Writer
The delicious smells of popcom, pizza, coffee, and hot
chocolate hit you as you enter Troy Memorial Stadium on a
chilly Friday night to watch the football game. But where,
you wonder, are these terrific and tantalizing smells coming
from. The high school concession Sand. This year, as in
past years, it was nm by students, mostly seniors, trying to
eam money for their yearbook. These students give up a
quarter or more of the game to help serve food and drinks to
the hungry and thirsty crowds. In only four home games this
year, S3100 was raised to be used for the yearbook.

The program sellers, headed by Junior
Class advisor Mr. Bill Emerick, had a
successful year. Through cold weather
and rain, the participants sold programs
at varsity home football games to the
close of the first quarter. Programs
were also sold during basketball season.
The programs sold for fifty cents apiece,
and the total earnings were over 3700.
The money earned from the selling of
the programs was used to support the
Junior-Senior Prom. The budget for
Prom was planned around the gross
profit of the program sales and other
Junior Class projects. Even though they
worked hard, the Juniors felt that it was
worth it. As Debbie Vlhldenthaler put it,
"If we put as much effort into the Prom
as we put into selling those programs, it
will be a great success."

Astra worked bam' with people andfor them
The 1979-1961 school year, was a
very busy one for the THS Astra
Club. The Club darted of by holding
a car-wash in the summer to raise
money. Just before school stated,
they went horse-back riding in
Sdney and met at Friendly's after-
wards for some ice cream and
socializing. When school began, the
club continued to keep up with their
activities. They raised funds by
openin operating the concession
stand for the home Soccer games
and by selling Tmjan spirit buttons.
To finish the fall season, the Astra
members wore costumes to school

Troy in the form of the AFS club.
In cooperation with the adult

most publicized AFS sponsored
activities were the camation sale
