' . Today, talk of student apathy' leaves the impression they don't: "There is a large group that are apa- thetic, but there is 'also a group who ' know what they want, and.are going to get it," counselor,Sheila Pool said. Many students are apathetic, but there are also students who have chosen to become involved. These are the 'teenagers who are becoming involved in school as well as community activities, many working on a volunteer basis: - "lt was hard work, but it really, made me feel good." junior Stacey Smothers said about her experience at Camp Moja this summer. ' A group of students from the com- munity worked for,a week during June at Camp Moya as counselors, each one assigned to work with a handicapped camper: . ' "l went because these kids need someone to love and care for them and give them attention," senior Richard Wil- son said. "This was my third summer at Mojaf' - - ln addition to the Camp Moja volun teers. several volunteers serve in area - hospitals and handicapped centers: "l enjoy working with people." V ' volunteer Chuck Burris said "Through ' volunteering. l get to meet people who will help mein-planning a medical' career in the future and l have direct contact with people " Florent e -Linnenbrink, director of volunteer services at the lndependence Sanitarium. added. "We have had excel. lent success with our youth volunteer program. Wefre getting the kidswhoare sincerely interested in helping people and learning " . A Anothler annual community event that draws many volunteers is a walk a Q . Rellec t10nsf2 thon. The best known are the Walk for ' Mankind and the Leukemia walk-a-thon: "l'm a real humanitarian when it comes to things like that," senior Bar- bara Evans said. "l really don't know why l do itg walking 20 miles is a long way. Nobody makes me, either! But, if l don't- care, why should anyone else?" ln addition to the community activi- ties, there are many areas in school . where students have an opportunity to serve. 'Student Council is one such area: . "I got involved with Student Council because l like to see things done for the school and students, and l like to be ' involved with it, too!" vice-president Shel- ley Hendrix said. ."At school, the officers meet a great wall of'apathy," StuCo sponsor Nancy Ziegenhorn said, "but they go ahead and do what they can to get people involved." - - ' Senior Debbie Driskell has chan- neled her efforts into serving the school through music as president of Concert Choir: ' "l really looked up to the past presi- dents when l was a sophomore and a jun- ior, and l wanted to be a big part of choir and do as much as'l could for it," she said. There are many other students who go without recognition in service to the A - school and the community. This is only a small portion: . ' "l really admire these people, serv- ing without recognition. They are not nearly rewarded for the time they put ' in," Pool added. "lt's a shame that some kids come- and do only what they have to, hanging in to get that diploma," Ziegenhorn said. "This is the only time that kids will have a chance to be around others their own age," counselor Buel Stewart said. "GettingXinvolved now will prepare them to help others and themselves later." . . i , X.. -, . HQ , I i V ' H H . if 411 1 , IW, i . .

Reflechonsffl . f . x eflec tion . . of kids truckin' to a newp beat ' b y Pepin Conde eenagers of the 80's are truckin' to the beat of a changing society. The anti-war rallies are gone and long hair is no longer fashionable, but have today's teenagers really changed? V ' . "Yeah," senior David Shockley said. "They were into protesting and stuff like that f you don't,see us marching at Kent State." But with the domestic turmoil facing this country today - an unstable econ- omy, racial riots and the outbreak of V overseas violence - why have these rebellious attitudes of American youths not sprung up? ' "They ttoday's teenagersl are turn- ing much more into their own psyches - something we seldom saw in the 1960's when youth was turning outward to change society," psychologist Kenneth Keniston, professor of human develop- ment at the Massachusettsqlnstitute of Technology, said. "I think the people lookedback and realized that they really didn't get any- where. What they did wasn't going to affect what the government did," senior Kevin Yahne said. Keniston agreed. "They tend to feel that the youth upsurge in the 1960's didn't get anywhere. Among some high school students there seems to be a sort of 'left out' feeling that they havemissed everything." . ' For some, the answer lies in the changing value of today's society: 1 "I think changing values have a great deal to do with it," Linda Griffith, English teacher, said. "Permissiveness of society has caused a lot of the problem. A large percentage of parents don't even attempt to discipline their children." , - Even some students could recognize their point: ' "Back then parents were pretty strict," David said. "Today people are more lenient. Kids can do just about whatever they want, they don't have to fight to do things." , No person interviewed really, defined the problem to one specific area. Society as a whole was blamed. With the respon- sibilities and pressures of a growing world, young adults are continually hav- ing to channel more and more of their time and interests to meet society's needs: , . "Today's kids are expressing their independence sooner," Pool said. "It's the growing pressures and faster-paced society. To move along with it, you have to do all these things." "Everything has moved down in age. Today's'parents when they were young, didn't have expectations of becoming part of the 'adult action' until they fin- ished high school. But for their kids, not being part of that action is much harder to take when 16-year-olds can drive and often own cars, and life centers on their peer group with little room left for any- thing else," Dr. Herbert Hendin, Colum- bia University psychiatrist and director of psychosocial studies at the center for policy research, said. i But nearly all also said the potential for these rebellious attitudes was still there - just tucked away under the hus- tle and bustle of today, waiting for a real need to make themcome forth tomor- row. If a real problem came up - some- thing large enough to stir up some emo- tion - they said American youths would react. Peter N. Stearns., historian at Car- negie Mellon Universityfsums this up: "lt is not unusual for waves of pro- - test to surge and then wane for awhilel It can be argued that the protestors of the 60's achieved enough of their goals to explain a brief lull. Andlunquestionablyg . more solid barriers to unrest were ' g erected." Reflections!5 ' . i ..n.

Kid f o their own thing by part . by Pepin Conde early every day before going to school Chrissmoked a joint with his friendsf The few days he didn't get high, he usually spent staying home and crashing out, maybe dragging in second or third hour, often hung over from the night before. - - Like many students today, Chris had found himself being backed against the wall of the adult world. He was searching for an escape. For him that meant partying. One day Chris woke ,up to the fact drugs weren't, getting him anywhere. They were hurting his relationships at home and at school. And they were hurt ing his ability to ,cope with life: "Partying had such a control on my daily life that l didn't care about anything else. School, work, church -A everything seemed to be a drag, You have to put out some effort to succeed and l would have rather just jammed out in my own little world without trying reality," But getting off drugs wasn't the end to his partying. lt was just a time to ' change his views. ' . Since then, Chris has found there are other waysto party. He's found that partying is just a wordand what you make of it and how you feel determines the meaning: A "Helping other people have a good time is the' best way," he said. "Fixing lyour friend's stereo, repairing a car, help- ing someone out of a jam,-all these build real good friends. And one real friend, who understands, is worth a thousand casual conversations. ' Q A Chris is-not the only one to realize this. Some Truman students also share this idea: - t ' ' "Anytime when people get together and have a good time could be consi' dered a party," senior Jeff Magel said. "Any get together -- a church youth in' group meeting might be considered one you don't have to drink or smoke' pot,-f' 'V "To me, partying is cruisin' Noland with my girlfriends and whistling at the guys," junior Sonya Reddell saidi , "Yeah," senior Joe Amherson addeffi enthusiastically, "tt's getting some 'wango tango." " j 3 "A lot of it depends on who you are talking with. lcould see how going to a youth group meeting at church might be one, but at the same time l could see ' going to a concert and jamming down," senior David Mancini said. . A lot of things can influence whether a person will party. for some it depends on the group they are with at the moment f if it is a date or just a friend or possibly someone they might let pres sure them into it, with hopes they'll just fit in with the crowd. "Some people party just to let oth ers know. They're saying. 'Hey, look at -W me, l'm okay. l do -the same stuff you do. accept me," Chris said. "Usually the 'in' crowd shoots for social status and party ing is part of the social or 'in' style " This idea of partying to fit in with the crowd affects nearly everyone. Many - people said when Friday and Saturday night rolls around, they are expected to party. Junior Kim'Gill explains, "On Friday and Saturday everybody asks, 'Are you going out tonight?' lf they find lout you are staying home, they think you're a V V drag." V 4 Despite all the conflicting interests and backgrounds of the people inter viewed, their ideas of how to party still had one universal theme: having fun.. V Senior Rob Briggs described this idea particularly well: H ' "llt isl A social gathering.. stimulating conversation andesocial awareness to promote pleasure, amusement and the like. lmean it's kickin' down low. feelin' high."

The President held a "town meet- ing" question-and-answer session with the Independence public on Sept. 2, the seventeenth such meeting since his inauguration. It was an opportunity for the public to voice their opinions and receive first-hand responses from Carter. After the President gave a brief opening speech, 16 volunteers chosen from the audience were allowed to ask questions. Among those chosen were junior Chong Kim and debate teacher Karen Garrison. Preparation for the visit went on for a week and two days beforehand. Secret Service moved in to scout the building. The band room was converted into an information center and additional tele- phone lines were brought in. The school Carter campaigns in gym maintenance crew put forth extra effort to make the school spotless. "We did a little extra cleaning," Principal LeRoy Brown said. "We got the schedule speeded up a bit. Everything done would have gotten done sooner or later, anyhow, but with the President coming things just happened a bit sooner." Besides physical changes, altera- tions in the school program also had to be made. Class and lunch schedules had to be rearranged and certain classes had to be moved to make extra room. Some people criticized the disrup- tion of the schedule. A large effort was made to keep the problem minimal. "I thought the community and school involvement far outweighed any inconveniencesf' Brown said. 'iThe tim- ing was good - we had just gotten off a long weekend. It did not disrupt the school program to where it was irreputablef' Another problem arose through the involvement of the student body.

Brett fans went farther than the write-in uote to print "Brett for President" bumper stickers. original plan, only some 50 students were to be included as ushers and press aides. Through the efforts of Brown the number was increased to about-400. "I made an effort to work with the press and Secret Service to involve more students. We stressed that for kids in certain classes relating with the things going on there was the potential for a good educational experience. l regret we couldn't get every school related person into the gym for a first hand experience," Brown said. ' To accommodate the remaining people, two large TV screens were bor- rowed from Washburn TV and installed in the library and multi-purpose room so the meeting could be viewed as it was being broadcast live. In addition, stu- dents went outside to watch the motor- cade as it pulled into Truman. "I felt we had done all we could do to include as many students and faculty as possible," he added. "Almost everyone who wanted to be involved was, either directly or indirectly."

Q vA Fast foods Youth 'chow down,' but not at home by Jeff Ellis The sit-down family meals are fading as the fast-food industry invades. Today's teenagers can no longer rely on a family meal every night. Jobs, school activities, etc. have become so time consuming a large meal is no longer convenient. "We don't eat at home very much anymore," junior Bob Morris said, "My mom works nights, so I just go out and get a hamburger or a pizza. On the aver- age, I eat out about five times a week." In the past decade, the fast food industry has exploded! Students are faced with a vast variety of foods to choose ,among - from the Big Mac to the Whopper. In a survey taken by a fast food res- taurant, 62 percent of Independence area teenagers eat at a fast food restaurant more than once a week. Twenty percent eat out once a week, 12 percent eat out "I eat out about twice a weekf, jun- ior Tom Cochran said. "It's a lot easier than going home and fixing something' Fast food is quick, cheap, and tastes good. Unfortunately, it may also provide questionable nutrition. "The problem in fast foods is the lack of iron, minerals and calcium, and the high cholesterol level from the beef and cheese," Barbara Dudley, director of Dietetics in the Sanitarium, added. One nutritional pitfall is fried pota- toes. Potatoes fixed any other way pro- vide few calories and a large percentage of the daily requirements of proteins, vitamins and minerals. When the pota- toes are deep fried, they become a high- fat, high-calorie food with little nutritional value: "People are going away from fruits and vegetables and going to meats and fats, and then not getting the proper amount of exercise," LaVonne Obrist, clinical dietician for the Independence Sanitarium, said. With the variety of fast foods availa- ble, it is a matter of taste as to which fast food restaurant to go to. In "Burger- land," McDonald's ranks No. 1 in popu- larity and sales yearly. lVIcDonald's commands approximately 20 percent of the S20 billion national market. They are rapidly being challenged, though, by numerous other growing chains. "The Big Mac kind of tastes like they use old stuff on it to get rid of it. I like Wendy's or Hardee's a lot better!" senior Lyn Snowden said. Even with nutritionists, dieticians, doctors, etc. constantly warning of "what fast foods will do to you," the ease, quickness and taste of fast foods always win out. once every two to three weeks and six percent eat at a fast food restaurant once a month. Left: Noland Road makes it easy for patrons to choose what type of fast food they want with its large selection of restaurants.

Nf.4.4., r.vzMxr,x s 14.4 Status symbols The Calvin Klein game hits students b y Lisa Nash Corvettes - Calvin Klein jeans - involvement in sports - a home in the up-town. These are just a few of the items that could qualify you for - the status game. The object of this game is to use your players fthe status symbolsl to prove that you have prestige, you fit ing or maybe, that you are just plain somebody. "It's in every facet of life. Since the beginning of school we've always been taught someone is better than someone else simply because of cliques and out- ward appearancesf' senior Barb Paxton said. Status of the 80's seems to have made a significant turnabout. According to "U,S. News and World Report," Americans by the millions are seeking status by rejecting flash goods and adopt- ing simpler lifestyles, often revolving around improving their minds and bodies. Americans, concerned about good health, pinched by inflation and worried about the energy shortage, have been shocked into the change. The society that once drove around in Cadillacs is now grabbing gas-efficient cars that are equipped with all the extras. Jeff Miller, psychologist at the Inde- pendence Mental Health Center, views status symbols as tools of the trade: "Something that shows high status in one field could be different in another. High status clothing for a doctor could be described as a white coat with a nice shirt and tie underneath. At colleges, it's the lzod shirts with the crocodile on the right side." In Truman's own society, today's clothing also reveals much about a person. The designer jeans and shirts that are the apparel of many these days have to be a sure clue to letting admirers know just what they cost. Students cite other reasons for purchasing designer fashions: "1 know they are going to last a lot longer and they are good quality. I also get them because of the brand name though. People see them and they say, Above: Whether it's to attain status or not, outer appearance for some could be a mirror of whafs on the inside. Right: The price for the name on the pocket of your designer jeans could run into the big bucks. 'Wow man! Calvin Kleinl' i' junior Jeff Beck said. Senior Laurie Pierpoint also enjoys the company names: . "But," she said, "I also think they fit better." Besides clothing, Miller also says status in a society tends to stem from the basic needs of people: "Everyone really needs doctors, so doctors naturally hold a high place in society. Everybody needs to be enter- tainedg therefore athletes, musicians and actors all have high prestige. The same is true for leaders." People who readily use status sym- bols, Miller said, are already assuming they have status and are trying to prove it ln a quote from "U.S. News and World Report," Standley Marcus, former chairman of Neiman-Marcus, a chain store that has capitalized on status sym- bols, said: "The whole clamor for status is a matter of acceptance. People want this acceptance from their peers." Lifestyles! 12 'ef gif H 5 5 if I .iffiffffh fa ' f" P ,fl WW. - - 0-can J ri j., ' ' 'il' Wi Nu. Nt-"'im10'cl-'-ll I Western wear hits scene in 'Urban Cowboy' craze b y Shelle y Hendrix Roy Rogers, John Wayne and now John Travolta. Cowboys have played a key role in America's heritage. It seems they've always been around and some say their spirit will linger forever. ' "It may be a fad now, but it's going to last a lot longer than, say disco. Busi- ness has picked up in the last three months. People are more interested in it. I think it's going to stick around pretty strong." Although cowboys have been around for awhile, there is a new type of cowboy these days - the urban cowboy. "The urban cowboy is the weekend type person," Tom White, assistant manager of the Electric Horseman, a - country and western lounge, said. "He's very casual." "The urban cowboy can feel comfort- able because he can be himself. He doesn't have to be phony or put on an act for anybody." ' These may be reasons the urban cowboy fad has captured such a wide variety of people. "We've had state representatives, lawyers, doctors and blue-collar workers. When they come in, they don't wear the three-piece suits, though. Everyone's casual." Another possible allurement is coun- try and western music and dance: "Country and western dance is just fun. You don't have to learn certain steps to be good. You can do anything you want. Country-western music also has old style rock-n-roll and that attracts some people." The Electric Horseman also has a mechanical bull similar to the one in "Urban Cowboy." It sits right out in front ,of the lounge. White says that the bull isn't the main attraction, but it's nice to have around. A big influence in this new fad seems to be the movie, "Urban Cowboy." "I think the movie has a lot todo with it," one patron of the Electric Horseman said. "It's just a fad, but it's a change of pace." Salyer agrees the "Urban Cowboy" has helped the cowboy fad, but she believes there has been another big influence: "Willie Nelson is a big influence - maybe even bigger than the movie. He's influenced the type of clothes the cow- boy wears, especially hats and boots." Although the cowboy scene hasn't caught on big yet among the majority of students, a variety of viewpoints exist on the growing fad: "I think they're looking for some- thing new. Everyone is tired of disco," senior Susie Lindsey said. "People like to wear new and differ- ent things and this gives them something - cowboy boots, hats and jeans," senior Carla Hooper agreed. "I bought cowboy boots because theylre something different, something new," senior Tommi Likely said. "But I think this style is going to stay around for awhile. To most people at Truman, being a cowboy is a look, but to some it's a lifestyle." This proves to be true with senior Rod Howard: "Sure I consider myself a cowboy, but it's more of a feeling, not a look. "Take someone who goes around and gets high all the time and then goes and puts on boots and he thinks he's a cowboy. I don't think he's a cowboy. "It's a free spirit." Sophomore Jeff Stuart agrees: "People try to be something they ain't. Like there's a certain fad so everyone goes out and does it. That's silly. "I'm a cowboy because I feel com- fortable being a cowboy. lt's what I like. It's a feeling." "Before, people were afraid to admit they were cowboys because they wanted to fit in. They were cowboys at heart, but not on the outside," Howard explained. "It's easier now," Stuart said. "Before, most people thought it was kind of weird, but now people are going along with it. It shouldnlt matter what people think. I'm me and I ain't going to put on an act." The cowboy is a familiar figure to people, says Salyer. "Cowboys are really American and I think people are trying to get back to that- to a more wholesome look."

Summer hot spell sizzles with record-breaking heat In the blistering classroom, students limply sat sweltering during the worst heat wave in Independence history. The heat wave in July took more than 170 lives in the Kansas City area, and continued through September: "We spent most of our time in the basement where it was cooler. I would get up in the morning and do all my chores before it would get hot in the afternoon. We hung our laundry out instead of using the dryer," senior Jean Deters said. With the high demand of energy re- quired during the heat wave, many resi- dents of Independence encountered pow- er outages on peak alert days: "All of a sudden the electricity went out and the house became terribly hot. I went downstairs because it was a little bit cooler," senior Licia Dowell said. During the summer band members met to practice marching. Practicing in the evenings helped.

S f' rf so it wasn't too hot, but it was still uncom- fortablef' senior Todd Harris grumbled. "It wasn't too bad because it was at night. What was worse was that I had football practice before, so that was a bite," junior Randy Bentele added. Since football practices were in the later afternoon, the heat was warmer for the players than the band members. Junior Robbie Makinen explained: "It was bad. It was super hot. They had to bring down about four coolers of ice each day." Looking at the cooler side, junior Michelle McQuinn worked as a lifeguard at an area swimming pool. It proved to be one of the most popular places during the summer heat. "It was crowded. By the middle of July we fHighleahj had made more than all of the last year. They sold over 1,000 season passes and refused to sell any- more," Michelle said. As it theheat during the summer weren't bad enough, the first couple of weeks back at school proved to be ex- hausting. "I just about died," senior Kathy Tes- terman gasped. "I think there should of been more fans and I think we should of been allowed to wear shortsf' "It wasn't really that hot, but at the beginning of school it was hotter," senior Jim Johnson remarked. Senior Dave Lundberg said, "It was terrible. It was kind of hard to concentrate when you're dripping all over your work." Since the regular classrooms did not have air-conditioning, a problem arose of, students not being able to concentrate on their studies: "Because of the heat, it was hard for me to concentrate. I would of rather stayed in a stuffy classroom," sophomore Lori Puckett said.

Annie was the woman who solved the mystery of Helen Keller in the fall play, "The Miracle Workerf' Senior Karen Chadwick portrayed Annie and junior Suzy Hess portrayed Helen. Annie taught Helen that objects have names. At first her teaching was just a finger- game to Helen, but when Helen realized the letters Annie spelled into her hand meant an object, such as water, the mira- cle occurred. Helen, the blind and deaf girl, was realistically portrayed by Suzy who is blind. Blind since birth, Suzy has had to rely on her ears to hear the things she can't see. For the play she had to train herself to ignore sounds, yet she also had to listen so she wouldn't miss her cues. Below right: On Annie 's last day at the Institute the little girls giue her a pair of smoked glasses for her sensitiue eyes. Below: Conflict of ideas in the way Helen should be taught and disciplined led to strug- gles ouer her control. "Yes, it Cpretending to be deafj is very hard. I have gotten into the habit of doing it now and sometimes it shows up," Suzy admitted, laughing. Suzy has also had to depend on her memory as an extra sense. After every practice nothing could be moved out of its place on the stage so she could learn where everything was. They also put foot-wide carpet strips around the edges of the bedroom floor, which they built on a platform above the stage, so Suzy would know when she was getting close to the edge. Senior Denise Milstead portrayed Aunt Ev, junior Jeff Beck portrayed Cap- tain Keller and senior Lisa Nash portrayed Kate Keller. Aunt Ev was the one who suggested Captain Keller write to a doctor in Baltimore to help Helen. The doctor thought Helen might somehow be taught and so they found Annie Sullivan, as a governess for Helen, at the Perkins Institute for the Blind in Boston. Karen and Suzy had many struggle scenes in which the spoiled Helen rebelled against her teacher. And both had their share ofbruises from kicking and hitting: "The part I enjoy the best is when I get to drown her," Karen said, joking about when she had to throw a pitcher of water in Suzy's face while they were struggling. During the play, Annie's past came back to haunt her every time she became emotionally attached to someone. All the lights went off except the spot- light on Annie and a blinking light in the background. Then the voices blared out and Annie winced in pain from the mem- ories. When Annie was a child, the only per- son she ever loved was her brother Jim- mie, who died when they were young. So she said she would never love anyone again. In the end when Annie performed the i I' I r I miracle, she sat next to the water pump ' and hugged Helen. And then she said, fat the same time spelling into Helen's handl "I, love, Helen.

Christmas Dancef20 'Heritage' dance Interest in popular custom melts away The gym was bare on the night of the "Heritage Dance." As the evening pro- gressed, the number of couples dwindled. In past years the dance was one of the highlights of the year: "It's always been the biggest dance of the year. We made a lot of money on it. Kids are different nowf' Ron Clemons, Publications adviser, said. But three days before the dance there had been only 36 tickets sold. If more were not sold before noon on Friday, the Christmas Dance would be canceled. By Friday, 54 tickets were sold and Principal LeRoy Brown announced that the dance, sponsored by the Publications Department, would be held. "We already had the band contracted. We would have had to pay them, anyway. And then the people who had bought tickets, the girls had bought their dresses. So we decided to go ahead and do it, re- Upper left: Rhonda French wins this year's title as Heritage Queen. Below: A crown and red roses are Rhonda's rewards for being elected queen. Below right: A quiet moment in shared by all as Roger and Rhonda start the king and queen's dance, their first for the evening. luctantly," Clemons explained. There are many explanations as to why the turnout was so scarce. People did not realize the dress was to be semi-formal to formal, which meant that long dresses and suits were not re- quired. Others don't like the Chuck lnzerillo Orchestra and the type of music they play, or some just don't like to dance. Some also thought having the dance on the weekend, and when it is so close to Christmas, is bad. "It made me pretty mad. They shouldn't have expected a full house, hav- ing it on a Saturday night," senior Roger Campbell, the Heritage king, said when he was asked how he felt after he heard the dance might be canceled. But contradictory to the number of tickets sold, many thought the dance should still be held next year. "It just adds a special touch to Christ- mas. It gets you ready," junior Sara Sand- ring said. Others felt it was something different to do: "I like going to it. It's a different type of date in the wintertime. It breaks the fu routine of dates," senior Julia McCormick said. But the problems of the dance did not hinder the traditions. Roger Campbell and Rhonda French were crowned Heritage king and queen by last year's king John Steele and queen Tammi Weyrauch. Seniors Lisa Nash, Linda Halsey, Scott Burnett and Rob Latimer, juniors Trisha Anderson and Mark DeYoungg and sophomores Kellie Williams and Roger Reyes completed their court as attend- ants. The huge tree with strands of lights around it was lit up in the middle of the gym floor and the tables, decorated as Christmas packages, formed semi-circles out from the tree toward the band with the dance floor in the middle. ' Even though the dance is a Christ- mas tradition the decision will have to be made on whether or not to have it in the future: "I don't think it will ever be as big as it used to be. 'Tm going to try it one more year. And if it doesn't work then, it probably won't be worth it," Clemons predicted.

To catch the interest of the student body, fund-raising projects were the focal points for the week. "I wish it had centered more on the KAFSJ students and their countries. Last year Mary tMariko Kondo, AFS student from Japanl had made things she could contribute from her culture, but the stu- dents we have from these countries tGer- many, Portugal and Guatemalaj couldn't come up with things like that and so for that reason we did have to gear it more towards just making money. I regret that," sponsor Ann Sunderland explained. The purpose of AFS Week was to promote interest in the AFS program and also to raise money: "It is also a time for the whole school to get involved with AFS," Adrienne Thornton, secretary-treasurer, said. Monday, AFS Day, introduced the week with an assembly. AFS students Karin Grajeda from Guatemala, Bibiana Neves from Portugal and Markus Preissler from Germany talked about their expe- riences here and also a little about their countries. Then the guest AFS students from Chile, Norway, Portugal and Eng- -r-nupr Above: At the end of the first day of AFS Week, students gather at a reception outside the cafeteria to meet the AFS guests and have refreshments. land talked about their lives in their native countries. One of the money-making projects, selling pickles, was begun and then Mon- day ended with the reception after school to acquaint others with the AFS students and the guests. On Tuesday, International Friendship Day, the doughnuts, heart candy, shares and the pant leg competition all started off the rest of the money-raising projects. On Wednesday, Class Spirit Day, the promotion for the pant leg competition began. The sophomores were represent- ed by Mr. Berlin, juniors, by Mr. Drink- water and seniors, by Mr. Standley. For every S5 raised by each class, an inch would be cut off its representative teach- er's pant leg. Originally, the pant legs were to be cut on Friday, but lack of money caused the competition to be extended and the pants were cut on Monday. On Thursday, Club Day, AFS club asked all other clubs to donate money or have a fund-raising project of their own for AFS. Then on Friday, Mar-Bib-Kar Day, the pickles were delivered and hosts Phil Bennett and Shelley Hendrix had to dress in some type of costume for not raising as much money as the other host, Carman Steinman, did. On Monday, the winning share was announced for a free album of the win- ner's choice, but the winner never showed up for the prize. So the club saved the money that would have been paid forthe album. In the pant leg competition, the sophomores won, causing 13 inches to be cut off Mr. Berlin's pant's leg. The club accumulated approximately 51,000 over the entire week. The money raised will go toward the AFS program. It costs the same amount of money for one AFS student as it does tor four. So it four families are interested in hosting, it is pos- sible to have four AFS students, which is the maximum a school can have. There was no particular goal as to how many students they would try tor, just to be able to raise the required amount ot money. ' ,Except for a few improvements, the week was considered a success: "I was kind of disappointed in the class competition. It they wanted to make it fun, they could have donated more money and really made the teacher's pant legs higher. I thought that could have been more successful," Adrienne said.

The Music Department presented the concert, which was directed by Phillip Dunham, vocal music director. "It fthe Pat Revuej was basically started as an opportunity for the kids to sing popular music and put some skits on," Dunham said. "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" and "Keep the Fire Burning," which were ar- ranged by senior Debbie Driskell, "Hey Jude" and "Eleanor Rigby,', tributes to the memory of John Lennon and the Beatles and "Convoy" were some of the songs performed by the different choirs. A few songs had humorous extras added to them. In "Convoy," for example, guys on tricycles and big wheels rode onto the stage as the refrain was sung. Most of the other songs had simple dance routines to them, which added harmonizing movement.

Between songs, short comedy skits borrowed time and entertained the audi- ence while the next group got ready to perform. As the days drew closer to the event- ful night, to some people there was a shor- tage of time for rehearsing, and to others there was plenty of time: "More or less, we didn't have very much time. It's just come on us at once,', junior Robin Enke said. "People won't pay attention some- times. I think there was plenty of practice time. People just need to utilize it better," junior Greg'Palmer said. Use of backdrops brightened up the stage along with the effects of the lights, including several colored lighted back- grounds. One lighting technique, which was the use of strobe lights, was practiced only once. The auditorium dimmed and the strobe lights flashed across the stage, as the song, "Stormy" was sung by Con- cert Choir. Kathleen Tucker, Greg Palmer, fourth-hour stagecraft class, Robin Enke, David Lippe and Paul Given were all responsible for designing the set, lighting and sound. The Pat Revue and the musical usual- ly alternate years, but for the past two years there have been musicals. Because the Pat Revue had not been done for a while, many were afraid no one would know what it was and therefore not come. "I didn't know what a Pat Revue was. I thought it was a talent show.

These seniors, through involvement with school, excelled the normal dedica- tion of students by placing time, patience and understanding in areas they believe in. "The best way I represent Truman High School is by being editor of the 'Spir- it of '8l,' " Cliff Cokingtin expressed. "Through the paper, I've been able to accommodate all my abilities into one proj- ect which reaches many people. Our pa- per has relayed Truman's spirit of aca- demics, responsible judgement and school pride to all who read itf' Cliff was nominated by the faculty as the outstanding academic student. "It's quite an honor to be recognized for academics because that's really what high school is all about," Cliff said. "lt's nice to know I'm looked up to for my grades, but I really haven't devoted all my time to it. I've gotten a lot out of high school, and academics just happened to come along with it," he continued. Nominated for activities was Pennie Langton who participated in FCA, Na- tional Forensics and Debate Squad, Stu- dent Council, Starsteppers and Pep Club. "I think you have to stand strong in what your group believes in," Pennie ex- claimed. "God has equipped me with the abili- ty and energy to enjoy life, if I will enthusi- astically pursue those opportunities. I have energy and I have enthusiasm and I am willing to put that ability to use," she explained. Another important aspect is being involved athletically. Penny Waggner, nominated by the girls' athletic coaches as outstanding female athlete, played volley- ball, basketball, and ran track. 'Sports are important to me because it's been my whole life," Penny comment- ed. "I've played sports ever since I was little and that is about all I know." "You make a lot of friends, meet a lot of people and you have a lot of fun in sportsf' Penny continued. The boy's athletic coaches nominat- ed Rusty Case as the outstanding male athlete. Rusty participated in baseball, basketball and football. r "lt tsportsj gives me something to get recognition in," Rusty said. "That's all I ever had, because l'm not really good in school." "Sports, that's what I like. I like all sports, not just boys' sports. I like to watch the girls'. I like the after school activities better than the in-school activi- ties." Along with being nominated for Who's Who, all considered it important to have the student body backing them. "You're playing for yourself, but when you go up to the gym to play basketball and there are no fans there, you can't get into it. The fans make you go. They really do," Rusty exclaimed. "When you hear people cheer for you, it helps you play a lot better," Penny said. "When you're out there, having peo- ple back you gets you excited." "It's important to have the student body behind you because no matter how good your grades are, you won't get all that high school has to offer unless you extend your learning beyond the class- room," Cliff replied. Most of all, being recognized for their achievement in their area of interest be- stowed an honor upon the four students. Penny explained: "It means a lot. Sports are an impor- tant part of my life so it meant a lot to me to be picked for Who's Who."

In a school-wide election, Jodi, Trisha and Teresa were selected as representa- tives of their classes based on their con- tributions and participation in school and extra-curricular activities. "I was so surprised to be chosen, I almost died. It makes me feel that what I worked for wasn't in vain. I guess it means my class thought that my accomplish- ments were good enough to elect me," Teresa said. This year, Teresa was a member of the girls' tennis and track teams, vice president of National Honor Society, a Courtwarming Queen candidate, a Wres- tlerette, and a member of Science Club and Tri-M. "The learning experience l've re- ceived from school means the most to me," Trisha said. "Not just learning from books, but from meeting people and get- ting involved." Trisha has been a cheerleader for the past two years, and this year was Enter- tainment Chairman for Student Council, Junior attendant at the Heritage Dance, a member of Forensics, Honor Society, FCA and last year's representative of the sophomore class in the Who's Who elec- tion. ' "Being involved and participating in school activities is what has kept me going," Jodi said. "I don't think I could just go for six hours a day." In her first year at Truman, Jodi was a Red-Squad cheerleader and a member of the girls, swim team. Though each of the girls was elected on her contributions to the class in school and extra-curricular activities, all three stressed the importance of taking their academic work seriously: "All the hard work will pay off later. The things l'm involved in now will help me decide what I want to do in college and later in life," Trisha said. "I take my education seriously," Ter- esa said.

Cliff and Katie won the election and the Independence Optimists invited them to a luncheon, held to recognize all the outstanding seniors from the area high schools. Being involved in school activities and making top-notch grades are both quali- ties that go along with the award, but there are also many more: "You have to be able to get along with people, work with teachers and your peers," Bob said. Cliff was a varsity tennis player, a student council representative, the editor of the "Spirit," a member of NHS, NSHS, Quill and Scroll, Interact and Who's Who for academics. Katie was a junior and senior class officer, student council representative, Homecoming attendant, junior prom at- tendant, red and white squad cheerleader, a member of the drill team, NHS, Interact and Quill and Scroll, the managing editor for the "Spirit" and she was chosen for the Good Citizen Award from the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Others have come from around the world. Truman High School is not considered a "melting potl' in comparison with other schools, but is represented by numerous ethnic cultures, worldwide. Some have immigrated directly from foreign countries while others are descendants of immigrants. A few of the cultures represented are Dutch, German, Mexican, Korean, Chinese, Polish, Hawaiian, Samoan and Italian. Junior Silika Tonga and sophomore Kali Tonga are of royal ancestry from Tonga Island in the Pacific Ocean. Their father was among the first five Tongans to come to America. "My mother is from Hawaii and my father is from Tonga. I guess I am half and half," Silika said. Tonga Island is among a group of islands in the Pacific, which includes the island of Samoa where the Edward family istfrom. "My father came here 30 years ago because he was in the army. I was born in Hawaii and moved here about 11 years ago," senior Julie Edward said. Representing Korean culture is junior Chong Kim. Chong was born in Korea and moved to America in December, 1971. . "I still have very clear memories of Korea," Chong said. "We moved here . because there were better opportunities for education and there was more political freedom." Senior Monika Grusdat's parents are from Germany, her father from West Berlin and her mother from Hamburg. They moved to the United States "for no specific reason" in 1960. These are only a portion of the students with ethnical backgrounds. Most of these students adapt quickly to their new situation. However, for some who are racially or ethnically different, prejudice and discrimination sometimes become a problem: "I don't really think that this school is prejudiced," junior Gene Lee, one of two black students at Truman, said. "If they were, they would show it. In Missouri, they won't tell you they don't like you. Where I used to live, in North Carolina, they came right out and told you they didn't! I guess anywhere you go you're gonna get stared at if you are different." Louis Wirth, a well-read author on prejudice and racial discrimination, says prejudice is "an attitude with an emotional bias." According to Wirth, everyone, in the process of socialization, acquires attitudes, not only toward the racial and ethnic groups with which we come into contact, but toward all the elements of our environment. We learn to have attitudes toward dogs, flowers, democracy, red hair, poetry, communism, television, chiropractors, news commentators, modern art and even towards ourselves." "You'll find discrimination against something everywhere you go," senior Monika Grusdat commented. "I really donlt think it is very bad here. The students at Truman accept and make friends easier with people." Foreign exchange student Karin Grajeda admits that one of the most difficult obstacles she faced whenshe came to Truman was the students: "Sometimes I felt like a stranger. Many of the kids had their own groups and friends and did not want to open up to someone new. Things are a lot better now," she added. "We need to make a concerted effort to meet people who are different,'l Sociology teacher Rhea Kalhorn said. "Differences are exciting! Our society is full of differences.

I "I expected to go and learn about history, because I was on an academic trip," senior.Colin Braley said. "But in realityl learned more from the people." Most of the learning experience was actually in conversing with the people and in some cases, just watching them and living intheir surroundings. The first thing Americans encoun- ter after leaving the airport is the differ- ent cars, traffic laws and a small amount of culture shock: my , I j It seemed like everywhere we went the pedestrian wastsecond class," sophomore Steve Caples said, "You had towatch ogg for yourself or one of lthoseover-sized goatcarts fa small carl would get you." , Q, "I couldnyt believe it when we got to Germany and found out that you had to cross the street inta crosswalkor you'd get a ticket," Colin added. "We had a great time just watching the cars," junior Michelle Wright said.

"We sat down and they served us spaghetti and we' ' kept asking for more.-'We were full and ready to leave when the waiters started f bringing out the dinner. 3 ' "We'd had a whole meal on appet- izer," she said. V - . g Many differences were apparent to the Americans and culture shock was onceagain the cause: o f'It just about knocked me out, when I saw a man walk out of the bathroom I was about to use. flfhey were alltco-ed, showers, too," Michelle said. X t I C ' After most of the culture.-lshockj had faded, the students were mote' interestedand open to seeing the sights of the different countries they were' visiting: I ' ,"We saw-a Shakespearean fplay',ilTTV' Stratford and that really clicked inmyt mind when I had to reada play byg Shakespeare in English,"' sophomote Julie Smith said. "We saw Leonardo da- Vinci's tomb, too. You hear about his paintings and how great he was, but you never. expect to be so closetto him."

'-571 A I Z, I Hands speak words for deaf Even though deaf people do not hear they jokes, they are still able to understand the laughter. Junior Holly Noland uses sign language to bring joy and understanding into their lives. I Holly became interested in sign language, orclosed caption, three years ago. She met a man at her church who was deaf and she felt that she would like to be close to him in a way that he could understand. , I "I met John Steele at my church and I felt sort of drawn toward him. He was deaf, but that didn't stop me." ' Holly's friend,iBernise Clark, who is also deaf, taught her how to talk in 'sign language. "I told Bernise about John and she taught me the different meanings of words by sign languagef, ' Sign language is not very different I I ..l.,,, I . ,il if I I iz! xi l v xi'-1 ii .. My ,r-. . Q '- .1-1. I 'Sign language enables Holly to communicate with the deaf and to translate oral ,speech into a language they can understand. ' from verbal speaking. The only differ- ence is that it's more condensed. "I guess it's a different sort of communication. People say complex sentences using 'it' and 'the.' When using sign language, you learn torsay things in a lot fewer words. People use extra words when they talk but sign language uses the main idea." Holly used her sign language skills this year at Truman. It was her first public performance and she used it dur- ing the play, "The Miracle Worker." "I did it because Mrs. Tucker asked me and also because it helped tie in with the theme of the play. Mrs. Tucker felt since the play and sign language both dealt with the handicap, it would relate to it." ' ' Holly enjoys using sign language. She is able to talk to the' deaf and enjoys it. "I took time to learn a skill that has brought me closer to others less fortu- nate than me." . if , ,V ' "-'wg Morgie Hoffine ggi V if 1 - I ,J 5. fi X ' - Z Janet Hoffman Q If ' ,L J..1,t l - A ' John Hogue ' 1, 4.

A couple of years later, he was still racing in local races and taking fourths and fifths. , ' "I really'didn't get serious about it until last year," Scott said. "Before, my dad would yell at me and say, 'you should havewoni' You know how dads are, butit was just fun to me." ' I This year Scott began to really put himself into his hobby. He set out to combine his natural talents with learn- ing, practicing and some changes. "I haverft done anything this whole yearon a weekend besides race motor- cycles," Scott said. V Missing Friday night football games andnot really having time to make a lot of friends at school was hard, but Scott couldn't do both. "l'm motocross all the time," he said. "I've got a lot of close friends at the track. We run in a pack and do things together." "We've got something in common. Natural talents are good to have, but sophomore Scott Phelps finds he has to concentrate on special i' motocross skills to compete with the nations best. Ijust never could go around telling peo- ple at school about it." V Scott also found one of his closest friends to be his clad. , , "We're a team, we don't have one of those hi-bye routine relationshipsf' Scott said. , He and hisdad travel together to his races and practice together. Scott also works with him at his motorcycle shop. He doesn't get paid, but hedoes get a new motorcycle every year and it also helps to pay some of the other expenses that come with his sport. "Shoot, a helmet alone costs about 33150, not to mention bike repairs,'7 Scott said. His helmet and other protective gear are necessities because motocross is a very dangerous sport. "I was flying around the first corner in the Astrodome in Texas and got tangled up with a guy. I think about three bikes ran over me," Scott related. But a caved-in chest, broken arms, ribs, collar bones and lots of bruisesjiust can't stop the motocross marvel. "In the last year I've only lost once," Scott said: ' to ' In Missouri he is ranked first inthe 80cc,class and third in the 125cc class. After qualifying iniMissouri he went to Lake Whitney, Texas, for his first na- tional race. "We fScott and his dadl decided I was ready to run it, so I gave it my best shot." .

Dogs, rabbits, turtles, gerbils and even snakes have found a place in her home. , g "We have had animals ever since I can remember," Theresa said. She didn't, have just one type of animal nor did she stop with one of each kind. - "We had three dogs, three rabbits, two turtles, snakes and 24 gerbilsf' she said. ' ' Though she has had many animals, the most prominent ones in her life were gerbils. K " "I started out with only two, but at one time I was up to 24," she empha- sized. Finding places for that many small rodents can be trying, yet Theresa found unique ways to house her pets: "For the gerbils.we had two aqua- riums, two Habitrails, a birdcage, a kit- 'chen trash can and a coffee can," she said. f'We even kept some in an old spaghetti pot," she added with a laugh. Even feeding them hasn't present- ed a problem. Her gerbils have unusual appetites for different foods, "They love birdseed, and they even eat dry dog food," she said. Gerbils aren't the only ones who enjoy clog food. Her rabbit also delights in this treat. This rabbit has another peculiar habit. "He likes to take walks - on a -i I 1 A Raising animals has always been an important port of sophomore Theresa Bascio's Me.

With this many pets, one would think there would be constant prob- lems. According to Theresa, there have been very few. "The only problem we have had is going on vacation, and finding someone to come in and take care of them." Taking care of animals takes lots of time, yet Theresa says this may be a part of her future. "I really would like to be a veteri- narian," she concluded.

Q, ThiS.,year.Student Council issued S2 parking permits for students who park their cars in the school lot. V Great demands for permits caused students to come to school early to get them: i i L l came to school almost an hour before school? started and there was already a long line of people waiting to get permits one junior said. i V More than one reason was given for re-establishing the permits again this year one of them being that last year unauthorized cars were found in the lot. Another one was that the principals and the Student Council decided to wait until after the parking lot was repaved before they issued permits again. SOO and DECA students had the first .opportunity to purchase the per- mits. The next day seniors had the chance and any that were left were sold to juniors. After the SOO students, DECA students and seniors bought their per- mits, there were few left for the juniors. After watching the parking lot and counting the empty spaces, the juniors were issued 50 more permits. Many juniors and sophomores Lb , , , Q.. , ..

Council parking permits because so few were left after the seniors purchased theirs. were unable to obtain permits but take the chance of driving to school anyway: It s a 'big risk driving to school without a permit but I do it anyway sophomore Craig Lunsford said. Even though there are only 340 parking spaces on the lot, 407 permits were sold. The reason is because some people don't drive everyday. This gives more people the opportunity to drive to school. , "I think we would have a big prob- lem if everyone decided to drive on the same day," Principal LeRoy Brown said. The parking lot is checked two or three times a week by Student Council officers and by the principals. Then the principals check the lot for other things such as lights left on, cars parked in unauthorized places, etc. when they check the cars for permits. Any car found without a permit will receive a warning ticket. The car will be put on a list and if it is found in the lot again it will be towed away at the owner's expense. Some students think this punish- ment is too extreme. "I think the towing charge is way too expensive of a punishment. If they're going to give any punishment, l think it should be a parking ticket or a seiglenth hour," senior Laura Minthorn sat . Sophomores!79 ,nw ' ,Ira ll. . 2 1' ' i f . l..

Students learn writing skill the right way by Teresa Rice roject Write is geared toward improving writing skills of students in the Independence area. Connie Vilott, director of Project Write, explained, "I like to think of it as a lost art. It is important to put emphasis back on written skills." It all began when an assessment test was given locally and nationally dealing with written skills. The Independence area was rated as having poor written skills. A committee of teachers who went to the Missouri Conference on Writing decided to create a program to help. The program, Project Write, starts with instructing teachers on more effective teaching skills in which to produce better writers out of students: "I think it is a really good program, because the main idea is to expose the teachers to what is involved in writing and to remind them what it is like to be a student," Kingdon Anderson, English teacher, said. The project started with a workshop for teachers in the summer. Several attended and learned new ideas on how to improve teaching technics: "We got all kinds of ideas on how to do pre-writing activities," Nancy Ziegenhorn, English teacher, said. "The teachers in the workshop actually went through the pre-writing. We did the actual writing and then we got into our little groups and tore each other's stuff apart." Linda Griffith, English teacher, added, "I think I relearned a lot about writing. This whole Project Write is a way to break out of a non-written non-communication." I Project Write is taking place in Independence, but not just for high school students and English courses: "In fact, this project goes from kindergarten to twelfth grade, across all disciplines which means it is in every curriculum area," Vilott added. "Project Write emphasizes that if you're going to teach a student how to write, they must be able to practice writing whatever the subject is." This seems to be the major concern. All those for the program believed it should be taught by all teachers, not just English teachers: "We are trying in these workshops to get other teachers to have kids write moref' Ziegenhorn explained. Griffith added, "This is a total school involvement. English teachers carry a great deal of the responsibility for producing good writing behaviors, but voluntary writing behavior is a school involvement." Project Write doesn't change the teacher's original assignments. It does change the way the teacher relays the lesson, though: "It is more of an attitude toward writing than it is any specific lesson," Anderson said. "It is an attitude that writing is a skill that is learned through practicing it." "To be a good teacher of writing, you have to be a good writer yourself. You need to practice the skills in order to teach them effectively," he added. Several teachers in the district have participated in the program and have given one or more of their classes a written assignment which will be evaluated in the spring, along with another assignment given in the spring. These evaluations will prove if the program is effective and whether students are improving: "It is a very idealistic program and for it to work a teacher has to be committed to it and there will have to be some changes made in personal teaching styles," Anderson said. academics academics!93 , ,M ,,, ,,: N " Hind.. L..-than dui., ,-.gnu ,, New computer studies add technology I Breakthroughs in technology have added computers and calculators to Tru- man's math program, "About seven years ago, I saw a necessity that we would, at one time, teach computers. I also saw the face that stu- dents knowing computers and computer science would be strictly in their favor, and that we here at Truman would need it," Charles Naudet, Truman's first Computer Science teacher, said. "I started with a general math class, with the permission of Mr. Brown, and I just kind of switched from a general math class to a computer science course. At the time, I stressed a lot of computer math which involves binary numbers, hexi-dec- imals, and base-eight," Naudet added. Computers and calculators in the math classes opened new areas of study: "When everybody in the classroom has access to programmable calculators, the flavor of the classroom experience is going to be a lot different, because there's going to be a lot more discovery involved," Norman Cox, math teacher, said. "The student is going to ask more interesting questions. The teacher is going to be able to answer questions that weren't able to be answered before," he continued. "Computers enable basic functions, addition, subtraction, multiplication, div- ision, to be performed over and over. A long series of numbers can be done faster by a computer than a human," Chuck Harris, Computer Science teacher, said. "There are also applications from Trigonometry, Math Analysis, and Calcu- lus that can be used on a computer," he added. Senior Jeff Gilbert, owner of an Apple II computer, explained the assistance computers give him with math: "Computers speed me up when I do math. I know what I'm doing, because it's sort of like a calculator, yet you have to know what you're doing in order to use the computer. I can do graphs, sines, cosines, algebra, and because I can do graphs, I can also do Geometry." Because of the increasing use of computers in the business field, there was a need for Truman to add more equip- ment. Truman now has five mini-proces- sing computers and one terminal system: "There is a big use of computers in the business world. Bookkeeping, payroll, keeping track of accounts receivable and accounts payable, inventory, costs analy- sis, and statistics can be worked on com- puters,', Harris said. "Engineering, merchandising, guid- ance systems, the space program, and automation all deal with computers and math," Cox added. This year Computer Science had a full schedule. The curriculum offers four classes dealing with computer science, including a new advanced class for math and science students. , With hopes for more classes in the future, Harris expressed only one prob- lem: "I hope to add another language in a year or two. The biggest problem is com- puter time." Below: Advanced Computer Science includes a unit of learning RPG programming on Systems 34 computers. Junior Dauid Wood runs through his program.

The course was offered in conjunc- tion with the University of Missouri at Kansas City. Any student who successfully com- pleted the prerequisite basic chemistry course was eligible to enroll in the ad- vanced course. Students had two options: one unit of high school credit which -may be used to meet the minimum graduation require- ment, or five semester hours of college credit through UMKC. This creditvcould have been transferred to most colleges and universities to fulfill the basic science requirement. The students must have made sure that this credit was transferra- ble to the college he or she chose. Stu- dents who enrolled for college credit were required to pay S13 per credit or a total of S65 for the course. If the course were Left: Senior Cindy Beebe keeps a close watch on temperatures, a vital part in the success of her ex- periment. Below: Closely following instructions is a necessary in achieving correct results. Seniors Bob Henley and Tom Alcox conduct experiments from their lab manuals. taken on the UMKC campus, it would cost S30 per credit hour or S150 total. Students may have paid during the second semester so they had some experience before they were committed to the college credit: "I like the class because it's college credit and I can use this credit when I go into medical school. It is just an advance being that way because then I don't have to take it over when I get into college, plus it is a lot cheaper here than at college," senior Darrel Drumright said. Some students, like Cindy Beebe, did not want college credit: "Fm not having my credits trans- ferred. I don't want to have a bad grade and then get it transferred. I want to star! out at college fresh. I just want this as a background because I want to go into medicine knowing more about chemistry when I go into college than I do now." Students who enrolled had to take the ACT test and receive their tests prior to the beginning of the course. They were issued a library card for UMKC Library and had library privileges. The school dis- trict provided textbooks and laboratory manuals, which would have had to be pur- chased if the course were taken at college. Jerry Dinsmore, director of the Sci- ence Department, said, "This is our first year. It's a pilot program. Other high schools around the Kansas City area have similar programs. It offers five hours of credit, three hours per lecture, and two hours of lab. It is basically the same as the chemistry course at UMKC." Chemistry was the only college credit class offered, but other subjects are being considered. "I think Social Studies and English are both considering the possibility of offering college credit classes as early as next year," Dinsmore said. "It's primarily de- signed to offer advanced students to get into some areas and earn some college credit while they are still in high school. This is to find out what college courses are like. I think it is good that there are classes like this. There are a relatively limited number of students that the courses would be appropriate for. We have had for a number of years programs designed to help lower ability students and now we are working on the other end of the spectrum trying to provide some changes for the talented and gifted students." fig ' L science Science!97 0 0 , Carter wms presldency as in student mock election A mock election, led by the Political Science class, gave every student the opportunity to vote in a Presidential elec- tion. John Henderson, sponsor and Politi- cal Science teacher, said it was done "to give the students an experience to see what it's like to vote like their parents would be voting." Participation in the mock election resembled that of the real elections. UI think about the sametamount of people votedl as in the general public," Henderson said. K'Probably about 50 or 60 percent." The school election was in many ways related to the real election. The students checked in to make sure they were regis- tered and then received a paper listing the candidates' names to be voted on. The papers were then put in a secret ballot box. It was made as real as possible for the students. "Anything we do in school sets a pat- tern for later on in life, and it they lthe studentsj learn to do it here, it establishes a pattern they follow." Senior Mark Anderson agreed: "I think it's fun. It's good for us to get a chance to vote and find out what the views of high school kids are." Henderson explained how the school system did not object to the slight disrup- tion of classes and students to take the time to vote: "We simply knew ahead of time that they fthe school systeml not only approved of the election, but they like for us to do this type of thing because it's something that teaches and at the same time arouses the interest of students and develops citi- zenship, we hope," he said. Besides aiding the students, the mock election proved helpful in other ways. "It always gives us an indication as to how the parents are going to vote because basically, the students pretty much reflect their parents," Henderson said. Winners of the mock election were President - Jimmy Carter with 55 per- centg Senator - Thomas Eagleton with 66 percentg Governor - Kit Bond with 54 percent, Lt. Governor - Kenneth Roth- man with 52 percentg Secretary of State - James Kirkpatrick with 76 percentg U.S. Representative - Ike Skelton with 78 per- centg and State Representative - W. T. Dawson with 54 percent. Again, Henderson explained that the percent of students who took the voting seriously was about the same as the public voting in the real election. Some of the candidates in the trial election las in the real electioni were not familiar to the stu- dents, so those certain candidates were not taken seriously and the students just voted for the name that sounded the best. "Those candidates they didn't know anything about, they were not paying much attention tof' Henderson said. "I really don't think a lot of people cared," stated one student. "But it was good for us in our Political Science class to see how an election was run." Right: As in a real election, students were required to check the records to make sure they had regis- tered before they could actually uote. These Political Science students uolunteered to help out and see that this was done. Above: John Henderson dis- cusses the preparations that haue to be made be- fore the polls open.

This Spanish song was only one of the things children learned in the bilingual program at the Guadalupe Center. The purpose of this program was to teach young children living in the area of the Guadalupe Center C2641 Belleviewj to speak two languages. Spanish students from both Oak Park and Truman taught the classes. The five Truman students - seniors Vicki Batterton, Becky Fann, Tracy Han- lon, Libby Hoelscher and Tony Salazar - taught classes every Thursday for approx- imately 20 kids. Though they went together, each person had his own class and made up his own schedule and own teaching method. Some people taught Spanish and some taught English. Since Vicki's students were learning English, they didn't need to learn as much as the others: "Mostly, they know their English pret- ty well," Vicki said. "We are just sort of perfecting it." Becky's students, however, knew lit- tle Spanish. "They can hardly speak Spanish at allf' Becky explained. "We teach them basic nouns and verbs. We also teach them everyday phrases like, 'My name is .Yf l'Me llamo .'J" The program not only helped the children, but also helped the teachers. Three of them lVicki, Becky and Tracyi said tutoring was a good experience be- cause they are all interested in teaching as 3 CBYCQY. For Becky, tutoring also helped her understand more about teaching: "Before, l thought, 'Wow, teaching would be a breeze,' but it's really pretty hard." She also added, "It makes me realize all the things-a teacher has to do." One of the problems was new stu- dents: "Bvery once in a while, new people come in, which is hard on us because we have to catch them up to everybody else in the classf' Vicki also found some problems with teaching: K'Sometimes it's hard to get a point across, because we don't really know how to teach yet." Though 'there were problems,- they still found good points about their teaching experiences. "I like it because I'm not only teaching them, but Ilm also learning things myself," Vicki explained. Tony also found it to be a rewarding experience: "Having a Mexican background, I feel a great satisfaction in instilling cultural pride in the children by teaching them to speak Spanish," he said. me I 41"1" gf' Qu Foreign Language! 102 i i i i . i ,,, .J- 27 2 'E A VJ rs.. ...vu ,f..-mf.-,pv-- J -M 5 ,....- U i Vg 1.1 i rs, 1 c Q Above: Student participation breaks up the monotony of class and in- creases the children's attention span.

Forensics! 104 'Q Class atmosphere aids in preparation The sixth hour Forensics students in Room 233 have a teacher, yet they mostly teach themselves. "We are completely on our own. As soon as we have a piece or selection, we can just go to work on it," junior Karen Elgin said. This class spent their time practicing for tournament events like oratories, poe- try, duet acting, humorous interpretation, dramatic interpretation, prose and ex- temporaneous speaking. Their teacher, Karen Garrison, did not lecture or give notes as other teachers. She didn't teach from a certain book or give written tests. Instead she coached the students when they need it and grades were given on performances and attitude.. Performances were every other week in preparation of an upcoming tourna- ment. Garrison, students said, only lis- tened, graded and gave helpful advice. ' "If we get an 'E' on a performance, it's like a test and it goes in the grade book," Karen said. Students were free to pick their own material to perform. About once a month each person was asked to turn in a cutting to build up the files. Because of the way Forensics was set up, its demands differed from a traditional class. "I work harder in this class than in any other. We have to have a lot of self- discipline. It has to be the way it is because we have to practice our lines,', Karen added. "This class is different 'than other classes in that it asks you to use certain talents you have and not for mental power. Not that you don't need mental power to do a dramatic interpretation or a duet, but you can't perform without talent, either," senior Glenn Snowden said. To the novices, the class atmosphere was a totally new experience. "lt's great. I really like it, but it wasn't what I expected," sophomore Kim Lynch said. Many times the coaching was done between classmates. "There's always someone who can teach you. Like for instance, Barb taught ime a British accent for a piece I was doing. Everyone knows each other's piece so we coach each other. We're like a team, one big family," Karen said. "We work as a family and we would do anything for each other. We can ex- press our feelings freely and communicate well," Kim said. Garrison also has an effect on the closeness and family feeling of the class. Many of the students call her "Mom." "She's very close to us with all the work she has to do to prepare us for tour- naments," sophomore Danny Kinney said. "Shes more like one of us and we can go to her with any of our problems," Karen said. "lt's much more than a class. lt's a family," junior Jenny Holcomb said.

New dimension improves acting skills 1 Down on all fours, the actress slithers across the hard floor, her tongue darting in and out and her whole form seeming to radiate a kind of green hue. Senior Amy Weld is imitating a lizard. But only for a few seconds. Actually, Amy is doing her job as a member of the latest dimension in the Theater Depart- ment, Advanced Acting. This new semes- ter class addition has enabled students to further their acting abilities through class study, performing scenes individually or with a partner, presenting a Christmas play to area grade school children, faking auditions for scholarships and even strug- gling to try and become creatures like lizards and flowers, which is called analysis. Kat Tucker, Theater teacher, stressed that Advanced Acting is not an extension of the Acting I clss. lt is instead a more involved course for people who want to really work on their acting. "Itls definitely an advanced class be- cause of the material we study," Tucker explained. "It's for the serious acting stu- dents who are supposed to have certain skills like a good voice and no stage fright." Not only was the course confined to' people who made an S grade or better in Acting I, it was also limited in class size: "It needs to be small because if it's large, each person can't perform enough to get the skill. You almost have to work on an individual basis," Tucker said. Some agreed the class was more involved, but just as rewarding: "I think Mrs. Tucker expects more. The things she tells you to do in Acting I, she expects you to do on your own in Advanced Acting. Things like blocking are up to you. It really isn't scary, though, because it's just as much fun as Acting I, if not more," senior Jean Deters said. Class work consisted of projects such as an activity called vocal trainingf After taperecording, students were to listen for, the faults in their voices and also learn how to make them more powerful. Unlike Acting I, a class set of books was used along with books of advanced scenes. Around Christmas, they concentra- ted on a play they did for almost all the area grade schools called "Christmas Snow- manf' Then they altered the whole atmos- phere of the class from carefree children's plays to a serious similation of an acting audition for scholarships and acting com- panys. Junior Jeff Beck said he was im- pressed with this project-since he plans on maybe trying out for these things later on: "Now I have something to do when I try out for them," Jeff said. Tucker summed up the first semester of the new class as being quite successful: "I really enjoyed the first semester. We only had 14 in the class. It was really fun seeing them become advanced." 1 Drama! 106 i Z i Sum Yfwafif' Below: Costumes add to the effect of the character the actor or actress tries to portray.

'N iii!!! Talent in artwork exhibits new yearbook dimensions With the changing trends in yearbook formats, artwork sketched a new look for the "Heritage" this year, a style never exhibited in the yearbook before. The artwork was prepared by Pepin Conde, editor-in-chief. The theme, "reflec- tions," was exemplified through each of his works, adding a flowing touch which wrapped up the book. But, Pepin was reluctant: "I don't think the yearbook should be the editor's yearbook, but the staff's year- book," Pepin explained. "I didn't want my stuff to be singled out. I thought the class might not want it, so I was hesitant to do it." "I think it is an added dimension to the book," Ron Clemons, publications adviser, said. "We have our own style here. When you have a talent such as this, you need to utilize it." Deciding on a theme took longer for the staff this year from staffs in the past. The artwork was the result which created a unique originality to the book: "We had a hard time deciding on a theme and the artwork tied the book together," Amy Weld, portraits co-editor, said. "I think it is original," Jeff Ellis, manag- ing editor, explained. "I think it will make our yearbook different from the years before. It is so hard to make anything dif- ferent, anyway." "It's going to be something different. Left: As editors, Pepin and Jeff find organization is the key for a smooth diuision of labor and adher- ence to deadlines.

It's not going to be the typical yearbook every high school has. It should be unique compared to everyone else's,,' Pepin con- tinued. Besides Pepin's extra hours in prepar- ing the artwork, all of the staff faced time- consuming tasks in the yearbook's prep- aration. Unnoticed by the students was the actual work the staff did themselves this year, instead of the company. Most of the book was prepared fully before the com- pany received it: "We are writing all our headlines and copy in advance and pasting it down our- selves. We are also doing all the graphics and graphical effects on our own. In other words, we are sending pages in camera- ready," Jeff explained. "It's hard work, but I think it is worth it because we learn what's going on instead of letting some yearbook man do it. If there are any mistakes in the copy, we don't have to pay for them. The disadvantage is we have to proofread at least four to five times to catch all the mistakes," he con- tinued. "It gives us more control on what is going on," Pepin said. "It eliminates a lot of the chance for errors. It allows the class to be totally in on the production of the book." ' Artwork was the key to making the book unique and classroom preparation gave the staff experience, but the main anxiety was to see the final hard-back form. Amy summed up the whole idea: "We think Pepin has done an excel- lent job on the artwork and we're anxious to see it when it comes out in the year- book." its , 'l - publications Publications! 109 -HMM , . Newspaper's flag changes with new trends in design Changing trends motivated the "Spir- it" staff into designing a new flag. The design for the name of the paper was changed to a bolder type this year. "We wanted to do something special and different," Katie Waterhouse, manag- ing editor, said. "It symbolizes a new staff and a new idea." "Since we are a different staff, itfs nice to be identified as such, but it fthe flagl won't change every year," Julie Murphy, editorial editor, added. Another asset to the paper was the new equipment installed at the printer's office. "The new system at the printer's is all computerized," Katie said. "They can set 'our stories and headlines faster." "With the computer we can bring in copy late and still have it in on time," Cliff Cokingtin, editor-in-chief, added. The new equipment not only made it a little easier on the staff at deadlines, it also gave them few restrictions on how to lay out their pages. "We have to keep the basic style," Katie said. "But the layout will change every week, just as long as it goes along with the layout techniquesf' With the changing layouts, preparing each issue of the paper took time: "It all starts when we write the sto- ries," Katie said. ' "The stories are assigned about one week before the deadline, depth stories longer than a weekfl The type was set in Blue Springs, but all designing was done by students: "We do everything but the actual printing," Katie added. "But our biggest problem is staff members missing dead- lines." 'fWhen they don't,meet their dead- lines it's late going to the printer." Although putting the paper together was important, several staff members felt that having freedom with the paper was just as important: "In private schools they fthe studentsl have few press rights. Here, we make the decisions on what our paper will say," Julie said. "I think we try to be open and listen to both sides,'l she added. "Anyway, at least I hope so!" "lim pleased with what the staffls doing!" Ron Clemons, Journalism adviser, said. "It's the students' paper and should be run by the students," Cliff said. "Mr. Clemons doesn't even read the paper until it comes out Monday morning." The staff used their freedom and exercised it by changing the flag, which had been the same for 13 years. alt was time for a change," Cliff said. "Katie and I went to a camp this summer and that's where we got a lot of our design ideas. "Then we asked the staff if it was all right to change the flag," he added. Many design ideas came from semi- nars staff members attended. But they learned much more than design: "It taught me how to work under pressure. I think it's important for a few staff members to attend," Cliff said. "You get experience working with others and putting the paper together," he added. "I got a better feel for news than I've ever had before," Julie said. Below: CML as editor-in-chieL and Katie, as manag- ing editor, must coordinate their talents in produc- ing each issue.

"I plan to get a job for my future. And I thought the experience in the business background would help mef' senior Lisa Reyes said. "I thought it would be good expe- rience because you learn how to use all the different machines, and it would be good if you got a job and you said that you know how to use them," senior Tamiko Gilkey added. The Secretarial Procedures class pre- pared the student for an office job, specifi- cally secretarial - dealing with shorthand dictation or machine transcription, rather than a clerical or receptionist-type job. "The emphasis is placed on qualifying you for an entry level secretarial position," Debra Smith, Secretarial and Clerical, Procedures teacher, explained. The Clerical Procedures class trained the student for clerical duties with impor- tance placed on typing and payroll, a type of basic accounting. Secretarial did not have the payroll unit and concentrated more on shorthand than typing. "The primary purpose of Clerical is to train girls for an office job such as an accounting clerk, payroll clerk, filing clerk, a general clerical position, a typist or a receptionist etc.," Marian Manuel, Clerical Procedures teacher, said. Left: The Memeoscope aids senior Dee Klingins- mith while she makes a drawing on a stencil. When applying for a secretarial posi- tion, many times shorthand is a require- ment: "Shorthand definitely helps if you are going to go into it from the beginning, not be promoted up to a secretary. It's almost impossible to get a secretarial job without originally having shorthand," Smith said. There are many opinions on whether shorthand is a necessity for a secretarial position: "Shorthand can give you a better secretarial position, but it is not the only quality in being a good secretaryf' senior Danielle Casselman said. But many agreed that a person who had shorthand would probably get a better position and more pay: "I think that shorthand is outdated. But you will get paid more because that is one more skill that you have going for you," senior Karla Lavis said. Training the students for an office job was the purpose ofjjthe two classes, but instead of going out after graduation and getting a permanent office job, many wanted more training: "I want to go to college or maybe a business school to get more experience in what I want to do," Lisa Reyes said. Many students took one of the two classes and will take more classes for the knowledge and experience they receive: "Nowadays, I think you have to have all the background you can to get ahead in the world," Karla said. business -L Bus1ness!113 Students get Vo-Tech has enabled students to achieve skills without the time or expense of a college education. "I like the idea that I can learn about computer data processing and not have to worry about paying the high rate of college tuition," senior Cindy Maloney said. Some students feel that Vo Tech helps in applying for future employment because they can use it as a source of reference and experience. "If someone wants to get a job later on in life, he can always have his Vo-Tech training to fall back on. I think that is the main reason for taking a Vo-Tech course. It gives you that extra advantage," senior Mendy Shockey said. Students sometimes, however, take the class because they feel it would be an easy credit. They also like the idea of being away from school for three hours. "I think that some kids just take the class because they think that it will be an easy credit. They find out at the end of the year that it isn't as easy as they expect," senior Brian Luttrell said. Even though people rarely do take it for reasons like that, it is mainly chosen to A ,,,,, WY ,, training without college help the student in an occupation such as body mechanics or health services. "Vo-Tech gives me a better chance for a career opportunity in medicine and health. That,s what I want to do and it has helped my chances," Mendy said. The students that do take Vo-Tech for easy credit usually aren't able to hold out. "Most students take it because they are interested in vocational training, that is, I'd like to think that. Some that figure it to be an easy credit usually don't last," counselor Bob Handley said. Vo-Tech is a good learning experience for students, but not all are in the class for a career in a certain field. Some just sign up for it because they want to learn more about a certain thing, not necessarily for college. "I like body mechanics. Ialways have. That doesn't mean that I want to take it up as a career for the future," Brian said. Some students in Vo-Tech have more advantages than others. They are able to work on their training and have a position to take up when they are finished. "I like working on cars. If I decide that I want to take it up seriously as a future A occupation I can always work in one of my four uncles' autobody shops. Right nowl am not thinking about itf' junior Dean Welsh said. Another important aspect that Vo- Tech has is that you have three hours to work on something rather than one. "I took shop one year and you hardly have any time to work. When you come in it takes five minutes for roll and 15 to clean up. That leaves you with only 35-40 min- utes to work. At VovTech I can work up to two and one half hours without stopping. I really like that," Dean said. ' Some who have taken the course feel that it was well worth their time and effort. Some have been offered jobs in various organizations. . "I got a lot out of Vo-Tech. Its training and personal reference helped me to ob- tain a job at a well known data processing company. That's what I wanted and Vo- Tech gave me the opportunity," Cindy said. Below: In Vo-Tech, Mike Allison works on a carfor ha grade as others might work on an essay for credit.

Students shape materials into projects A huge chunk of metal or a block of wood may not mean much to some peo- ple, but to Metals and Woods students, it is a beginning to one of their many proj- ects, The projects that Metals students made through the first three quarters of school included a parts bin, a scoop, a tool box, a log holder, a chisel, a center punch and a hammer. The students are required to make these, but in the fourth quarter are able to design their own projects. Working with metals is an achieve- ment and an ego-builder for some: "I like working with metals. It makes me feel like l've accomplished something," senior Andy Richardson said. Some of the skills learned are very useful to the students who are thinking about Industrial Arts professions: - "I plan on going into a career some- what related to this class. We learn a lot of basic things about metal which Iill need to know," junior Jerry Donovan said. "I like making things because it's cheaper than going out and spending all the money to buy them," senior Scott Epperson said. Working with metals is advantageous and profitable to many students, either as a hobby or a career: "I'd rather work with my hands be- cause it's interesting," senior Roger Campbell said. Students are graded on their partici- pation in class, their effort, and the work they accomplish: "I grade them on dimensions. I believe highly in craftsmanship and workmanship. Later, I grade highly on design and simply if they can read and follow directions," James Simmons, Metals teacher, said. The projects made in class are useful to students at home, and the skills can be used later on in their lives: The same was true in the Woods classes. The advanced woods classes spent as much as S100 or more on their projects, but it was only a fraction of what it would have cost at a store. Students could design and 'make whatever they wished. There were only two requirements: they had to construct at least one door and one drawer. "I'm making a stereo cabinet for our living room and itis costing me about 5100," senior Greg Warnock said. Using their hands is the main objec- tive for Industrial Arts students in finishing their projects: "Working with my hands ca'n help me get rid of a lot of my frustrations," senior Steve McGee said. Students said skills learned in both classes will be useful in the future: "I know in the future, when I leave home, I'll be able to make my own furni- ture," Greg added. industrial arts Industrial Arts!117 'fr iv I his adn is. ,mclmil-Ani,-. -li Below: Preciseness counts in sewing small stitches.

Addition of new machines and student s The school district purchased 14 new sewing machines to be used by Clothing I and II and Independent Living classes. The older machines, bought in 1973, were traded in so 12 new machines could be purchased, costing the District S160 each. Two free arm machines were also purchased at S350 each. The addition of the updated models will allow students to operate the new features available on the modern machines. The old machines were well-worn and in great need of replacement, students said:, "The cabinets were falling apart. When you pushed the knee control, the whole machine would wobble," senior Becky Cartwright said. N The condition of the old machines hindered progress and were an inconven- ience to sewing students: "They fthe machinesl broke down all the time while we were sewing. We'd just have to quit for the day. We couldn't get anything done," senior Julia McCormick commented. Home Economic teachers said they are striving for a rotation plan that will replace old machines every few years before they wear out and break. "The sewing machines are a nice addition to the department and make it possible for one or two students to work at creativlt each machine,'l Mary Robinson, sewing teacher, said. - Interested students also used the ma- chines for added details on crafts and garments: "If the students want, they can study the instruction manual and use the fancier stitching available," Robinson added. Some of the deocrative touches in- clude applique, shell edging, fagoting ljoin- ing two or more pieces of fabric with an open lacy stitchl and even patchwork quilting. Although senior David Cordes wasn't looking forward to the sewing part of Inde- pendent Living, he said he learned many helpful things: "I didn't know sewing was a part of it. I didn't realize what I was getting into but now I'm glad I took it," he said, then added, "I wear the gymshorts I made all the time." Many students said they found the class beneficial: "I learned quite a bitf' Tony said. "I feel more confident I can care for myself." Lisa Pendleton said, "You can work at your own pace and you don't have to keep up with everybody elsef' Kim described why knowing how to sew was a necessity to her: "Sewing will always be useful. There won't be a day where it doesn't come in handy," she said. "I sewed a button on this morning and I put a zipper in last night." Home Economics! 118 X -jg " " 1 A ' , ,,.,..-gr 'auf , f 4.

W , .T:M H hs' gf Brain study aids students in concentrating on work Take the letter "P," turn it upside- down and it turns to "d," or with a little imagination it may even turn into a musi- cal half note. With any creation, the right mode of the brain is at work. Art Il studied the brain and its right and left modes. They learned how the left mode is concerned with things like verbal recognition, sequential activities, and things that are taught such as exercises from the first grade on. They learned the right mode was concerned with spacial perception, visual recognition, intuition, feelings and creation: "The studies taught me about how to draw, well not exactly how to draw, but how to get yourself to draw," Celia Gar- cia, Art II-student, said. Concentration was also an essential factor: "It helps you to concentrate a lot more knowing about the right mode and understanding 'why you would concen- trate," Celia said. ' Janice Malott, Art instructor, said, "Too often the activities of the right side of the brain are ignored. We learn to mis- trust the right mode's feelings and intui- tion. There is usually no training. We were taught to think things out logically. We must do activities to by-pass this." Some of the exercises for training in- cluded upside-down drawings and mirror images. K'When you look at things upside down, you see things as they are, and not what you think they should look like. lt also changes the way you see and draw," Malott said. Malott explained that using the right mode of the brain is like driving a car: "At firstf' she said, "you are very aware of turning a corner or stopping at a light or maybe using a blinker, but after a while it just becomes natural and you real- ly don't pay attention to things as when you first started to drive." Other things, such as reading a book with the stereo on and really not hearing the words because of the concentration on the book also refer to the right mode of the brain. A Though Art II students studied the right mode of the brain and often use it in their work, it may be applied to other sub- jects. "The right mode isn't just for art. It applies to math, senses, reasoning and everything else,'l Celia added. In a recent survey taken by the stu- dents, after studying and exercising the right mode, almost every student said that he was amazed about how much he was seeing in comparison to before the stu- dies. ' "I think the students' drawing abilities improved," Malott said. "A lot of the draw- ings were primitive and after the study were improved." Nancy Lewis, Art III student, who was in independent studies, but was put into an Art II hour because of a schedule conflict, just listened while she worked and found it helped her very much: "I think it helped me with my draw- ings just from the review," she said. l i I I Left: When perplexed, the teacher's guidance becomes essential U' the beginning artist is to improue his technique.

That is -- before they became mem- bers. For the first time, students were re- quired to audition for first-hour band. There were several reasons behind band director Gary I.ove's decision for member by audition. "It gets the best people in first hour," he said. "Just to go through the audition shows desire. It also cuts out the people who don't want to work." Students agreed and said the audi- tions were important: "They are important because they weed out the people who don't want to put forth the effort to make the band good. The people who are in the band wanted to be and worked hard for it," jun- ior Carla Lindgren said. "With auditions we get a good band, the people who are interested and con- cerned about the entire group," senior Tricia Bruner agreed. Working hard for auditions, many students said, resulted in overworked nerves: "I was really nervous, but I tried not to think about it. I just kept working, and with the encouragement of friends, I made it through," sophomore Doug White said. "My hands were sweating and my stomach hurt, but I knew it was some- thing I had to do," senior Dwila Heath said. "I wasn't really scared because I knew I had to do it if I wanted to be in," senior Steve Canaday added. Nerves weren't the only thing those auditioning contended with. They also had to set aside time to practice. "The music was hard, so I had to rearrange my schedule at home to get in more practice time," sophomore Brent Caswell said. "I practiced everyday to prepare for my audition," Doug added. The music chosen by 'Love for the auditions was difficult, but he said he had his reasons: "I pick very technical music for audi- tion purposes. If I pick something easy I can't tell how technical a player is," Love said. The work put in by the students, and desire to be a band member probably accounted for the accomplishments of the band: "The band is definitely upgraded from years before. There is more competition 'within the band for chairs as well as between schools,'l Love said. "They stayed after school for rank drills and extra practices and showed they really cared. If they didn't care, they wouldnit bother," he added. , Finding the players to make the best band wasn't the only reason for the audi- tions: "Auditioning is a character builder. No matter how good the player is, if he can't play in front of people he can't enter- tain," Love said.

"l wanted them to perform at least once this year and also this spring at the Band a Rama." Last year the band got to perform at a few of the sophomore boys' basketball games, but the audiences were small. This year the members said they were excited about performing in front of a large audi- ence: "It made us work hard, we really wanted to do well," sophomore Jeni And- erson replied. "It was neat, it's a first for us and a good experience," sophomore Misty Chenowell added. "lt is definitely beneficial. Any time you put a person in front of an audience, he is bound to get something out of it,'l Love said. During the concert Junior Varsity all of a sudden we were playing with 8O," Jeni answered. "It really did not bother me, except we had a lot more sound," junior Kathy Ballard said. Q Most members said they felt the con- cert was beneficial to them in many ways for the upcoming Varsity tryouts: "It makes you think, 'Boy, if I can do it now, I can try out for the varsity band a lot easier,' U Jeni replied. "We got it over with. Now we know what to expect for next year," sophomore Andy Shockley said. Love and Varsity Band member Brenda Buckley agree that the experience was good for the J .V.

During certain times, Love assigned members to look for solos and present them within two weeks: S "He tells us what to expect like com- L petition and so on at the beginning of the year, then we do a lot of solos and take a test once in awhile to help prepare us for next year," Andy said. "Over the Christmas vacation we had x to pick a solo and then we had to present it to him after we got back," Jeni replied. "lt prepares us because you're in a smaller group and Mr. Love is willing to help us out individually," Misty said.

Besides having a concert every quarter, orchestra director Gary Love put the string players into quartets and small ensembles. One of the quartets played twice for the Junior Service League and for the Board of Education: "It's a real honor, I can't believe they asked us to come play for them,'l junior Laura Merrell said. The ensembles were not only to put the Orchestra in performance situations more often, but to help them improve: "I think it gives us experience playing in front of other people, but also as a small group," Laura said. "It gives you a challenge because you're the only one playing that part. Youire working as a group and a single," junior Vicki VanRy explained. Working harder was also a purpose of the ensembles. "I want to put additional pressure on S Left: Orchestra members listed on page 228. Top: Having a limited number of wind players restricts the Orchestra to certain types of music they can play.

"I think small ensembles help us to work harder outside of classf' Vicki added. The string players also had a chance to play with professionals this year. Love was able to get money from the Music Booster Club to pay professionals to come in and help the string players: "They aren't around professionals and they need to be around a pro player to model themselves after. That's one thing I can't provide unless I bring some- body in," Love explained. , The string players hoped that the pros would be able to help them improve their technique and the quality of their playing: "I think I'll gain some practical tech- niques for performance and hopefully playing with them will improve the quality of our performances," senior Denise Milstead said. Confidence and experience were other hopes of string players: "It will help me to hear a person who really knows what he is doing. I think it will give me more confidence and it gives us a lot of good experience, especially sopho- mores who need to hear more profession- als," Vicki said. Having only 30 people in the orches- tra presented a problem to the group. It limited them to the types of music they could play and the amount of sound they could produce: "The amount of people limits us to what we can play. We can't do any major works or anything which requires a large sound,', Love explained. Besides having a small number of people, most of the string players were sophomores, with only a few juniors and one senior. Love had to keep this in mind when working with the group. "The music isn't as technically ad- vanced. I'm also watching the string play- ers to check and see if they are doing things technically right," he said.

"Our choir is like a big family," Phil Dunham, choir director, said. "lf you don't like your family, you're 'going to have problems. I want the people to feel com- fortable with each other. They perform better that way." To achieve unity between the choir members, extra activities were planned throughout the year including a new member initiation, a hayride, a choir ban- quet and sophomore initiation, and nu- merous other parties and special events. "The choir hayride really helped this year, the way everybody who didn't know each other got together and sang around the campfire. This is the kind of thing we are looking for. As officers, we try to think of games we can play during our parties to make people work together as a group," senior Rachel Farnham, choir secretary, said. "In no other class do you have to work as closely with so many people," senior Brenda Buckley added. "You've got to learn to sing with people and get to know the people you are singing with." Activities during the year do help choir members become better acquaint- ed, and for many, help to loosen the ten- sions that come with performing. "In a regular classroom, you aren't able to do things together. In choir, we perform together, share nerves and learn to help and trust each other," senior Deb- bie Driskell, choir president, said. A major activity for the choir each year comes in the Spring at District Con- test in Warrensburg. "Dunham makes everyone want to be better than the choirs before," Debbie said. "We're always pushing to be 81 - especially around contest time." "Contest brings everyone so close, we all begin to feel the pressure. If eve- ryone doesn't give 100 percent, every- thing will fall apart," Brenda added. An additional performance came this year when the choir was chosen, along with four other suburban high school choirs, to perform on KCMO radio on Christmas Day. "It was certainly an honor to be chosen for this," Dunham said. "Truman was recommended to the station as hav- ing a reputation of a good choir. lt was something we've never done before." Dunham said that the choir parties and other activities are not only for the choir members: "If other people know we do fun things, it will make it more enticive for others to want to be in the group. The more people you have wanting in, the bet- ter group you'll have." Besides the musical experience stu- dents gain through choir, many have found that choir helps them in 'other areas. "We work hard together! My biggest satisfaction from choir is just knowing that I am good enough to be in it," senior Dana Cummins said. Q "If they sing well, and they know they sing well, it gives them a feeling of accomp- lishment they can remember for a long time," Dunham concluded. "It's a good feeling - that's why many continue to sing." Above: To know how to play cz musical instrument proves to be helpful for senior Gregg Lowe in adding harmony to the songs.

W 4,.l,-am., ,, ,-W, Christmas concert unites two choirs Girls' Choir filled the air with new sounds in a joint effort with Concert Choir for the Christmas Season at the RLDS Auditorium. "The echo choir was very impressive because it had never been done," director Phil Dunham explained. "We were able to showcase Girls' Choir and Concert Choir's abilities together. I was really proud of them." . The two choirs began practicing "Gloria" separately. They didn't come together and practice until the day of the program, and then only for ten minutes. "We never did practice together until the day of the performance, so we were worried, but it was a challenge," junior Stacey Smothers said. "We all knew it would be very hard," Girls' Choir president Patty Petet said. Above: Treble Twelve, Front row: Kelly David- son, Niue Atagi, Missy Kreps, April Noland.

"We had to be perfectly together and every girl had to know her part." Dunham explained further that this wasn't just any performance to get jittery about: "Obviously, the RLDS Auditorium is much larger than ours, so we had to deal with a lot of added problems. We were worried about a time lag, so the choirs were placed catty-cornered from each other," Dunham continued and added, "They had to be close together to make sure the timing was exact." On Dec. 14, when the two choirs met early to practice their song, everyone was anticipating what it would sound like: "It was unreal!" Patty exclaimed. "We were really trying. Because it was such a hard song to do, we were proud because it sounded so neat." "That type of song had never been done before with two choirs from the same school, in different sections," Dun- ham said. "The song was impressive and if I'd heard anyone else do it, I would have been impressed," he added. But at the performance there would be 2,000 people to impress, along with four other choirs and their directors: "It was really nerve-racking, but the choirs are of good quality and I knew they could do it." ' Concert Choir began "Gloria" and were joined by Girls' Choir: "We were afraid we might come in flat or that Concert Choir might be flat, so we were really concentrating," Stacey said. The choirs sang in an echo fashion, Girls' Choir ending the song with a 'gloria' that resounded throughout the auditor- ium, leaving the audience captivated: "I think we got everyone's attention," secretary Beth Clinefelter said. "People in the band and lots of other people came up to me and said it was really great." "But the competitive spirit also seeped into the performance as choirs from Chrisman, Fort Osage and Van I-Iorn sang their numbers. 1 "People told me that we sounded professional. I was really proud of our fam- ily - that's what it is like in Girls' Choir -because we worked so hard," Patty said. "It may sound conceited, but I think our choir outclasses them all."

LJ ri ,..........,,,,,,-nw g H E W" Tl. II in l J ,Q i . Q3 5 l as Q Tr outs unnecessary for acceptance IVIen's Choir and Girls' Glee Club are different than any other vocal music classes at Truman: "You don't have to try out for lVIen's Choir and Girls' Glee," junior Charby Goodwin explained. Because tryouts aren't necessary to get in either class, anyone could sign up for them. And a lot of people did sign up for various reasons: "I like music and I thought it was fun last year," junior Lana Waggener said, "Some people are surprised how fun it is. After they've been in it for a while, they like it," junior Jim Page commented. "I took it because I thought it would be an easy credit and fun, and I like to sing," senior Colin Braley said. "Last year I tried out for Girls' Choir and didn't make it so I went ahead and took Girls' Glee. I like to sing, Charby added. The fact that Girls' Glee and Men's Choir weren't tryout situations did make a difference in class procedure, compared to tryout choirs. "I don't demand as much from Girls' Glee and Men's Choir," director Phil Dun- ham said. He further explained: "Since they don't try out, the choir's not as good as far as musical ability. An advantage, of course, is that some kids not talented enough, to make Concert Choir can still sing." "The music he gives us is usually not hard," Lana agreed. "We learn about different styles of music and in Concert Choir they don't do that," Charby said. "We also get extra credit when we go to rock concerts or anything musical." Some said Girls' Glee and Men's Choir were good classes to take if one was planning to try out for Concert Choir or Girls' Choir later. "I think it gives you a chance to improve, so maybe if you want to get into Girl's Choir or Concert Choir later, you can," Lana expressed. Charby agreed: "Some people take it for learning before they try out for another choir." While many students took Girls' Glee and Men's Choir simply because they like to sing, some signed up for other reasons: "Some kids think it's going to be a goof-off class since they didn't have to try out for it. They think they can do anything they want to. They find out it's not that way and that's why a lot of them get out," Lana pointed out. She added, "Some peo- ple take it for another easy credit." Dunham agreed with Lana and said: "We have some who really want to sing and some who signed up just for credit. They're holding other kids back. It's lack of desire and cooperation because they're lazy." "Men's Choir and Concert Choir are different. Men's Choir is a little more rowdy," said one member of both choirs. "Some people don't care or put in 100 percent at concerts and practice. If eve- ryone gave 100 percent it would be an excellent choir," Colin said. Although Men's Choir and Girls' Glee may have performed easier music and have somewhat more of a discipline prob- lem than his other choirs, Dunham said it was an extra thrill for him to direct these two choirs at a concert and they did well "knowing where they came from and knowing how much they have improved." .niif 1' V- Choirs! 133 choirs 1 - ...ami I !

I A R E New program adapts to student needs An adaptive program has started this year, allowing students with medical diffi- culties to participate in physical education. This year the State put into effect a law that requires -every student, even if they are injured or have some medical problem, to take a physical education class. Counselor George Coskey, who helped put the program together, said, "This program was born when we got a letter from the State telling us that there was no excuse for a child not to have P.E. That's when we had to start the adaptive program." Coach Don Coffman, who taught the classes second and fifth hours, said, "The adaptive program fits that kind of stu- dent's needs. If a student has asthma and Can't run, we put him on something less active." Before entering, students were re- quired to see their doctor and have him fill out check list of the things that would be harmful for them to attempt. Doctors, though, seem to have different opinions about the program: "It was probably more my doctor's idea. He talked with the P.E. teacher to try to get me in and it's helped me a lot," sophomore Ernest Weldmeyer, who has a muscle disorder, said. But junior Mary I-Ioelscher's doctor didn't approve: "My doctor wasn't thrilled, he didn't think it would be very good for me because of my bad asthma, but he filled out a check- list with my restrictions." "Coffman must work with each stu- dent and their physician to determine the ability of the student and to meet their needs," Coskey added. The program deals with many kinds of medical problems, asthma, legal blind- ness and orthopedic problems. But Coff- man doesn't like to label it uspecial educa- tion": "I don't like to call it special, because that implies learning disabilities. These are just medical problems that would restrict regular P.E. classes," Coffman added. The small sizeof the classes helped students get individualized instructions: "We have about nine students in every class, more are coming because of the mainstream program, and we try to fit the activities around the students," Coff- man said. The activities of this program, though limited, benefited the students as well as filled a requirement, some said: "Our activities have a lot of weight- lifting, because if it's an orthopedic prob- lem or a type of muscle disorder, it streng- thens the other arm or leg that would usually grow weak. It also rehabilitates them faster," Coffman said. "There are also regular activities, like table tennis, archery and bowling that are all low activ- ity." "Coffman tries to adapt what you can do into the class," Mary said. Most of the students and faculty had a positive outlook on the program. "It's better than regular classes for me and I'm glad they have it," sophomore Mary Holt, who is legally blind, said. "I think it's meeting the need we have to cope with well," Coskey said. "I haven't had a P.E. class since the seventh grade and it's kind of hard, like the weight-lifting, but Coffman works with your particular problem so you fit into your class," Mary said.

J., - ,A., ,:W Many club die as interest level wanes by Teresa Figgins tarvation of interest has resulted in the death of many clubs. "A lot of clubs don't make it because there's not enough interest," Nancy Ziegenhorn, Student Council spon sor, said. In order for a club to be considered by StuCo, a petition must be signed by at least two sponsors and a minimum of ten students. The petition then goes to StuCo for approval. If approved by StuCo, it goes to Principal LeRoy Brown for further approval. "I would consider a good club one that is a normal outgrowth of a school class or activity, or one that provides an. opportunity for leadership and the opportunity for exploration of the club's interest. These make an effective club," Brown said. The clubs not only have to be interesting, but must also be unique and serve a different purpose than clubs already established. Denial of clubship may result from lack of originality. "We try to look at it and make sure other clubs aren't doing the same thing. The club has to form a function no other serves and it has to be a credit to the school," Ziegenhorn explained. "We sometimes have difficulty relating clubs to school courses or tying them in with class activities," Brown said. Literary Arts Seminar QLASJ and Stu- dents for Action in Education CSAEJ are clubs evident of originality. "LAS has appeal to those with creativity, those who like to or can write. lt provides opportunity for some to be in print for the first time,', Brown said. ' "The prime goal of SAE is to give students an insight into teaching as a profession or career. We have the opportunity to spend two whole days, at the school of our choice, with the teacher of our choice, working in the classroom," sponsor Floyd Hubble explained. Once a club has proved its originality and has submitted its constitution, it has to find ways to support itself financially. The Board of Education does not aid club funds. "The Board of Education makes it 'possible for clubs to exist, they officialize it. One of the problems clubs have is ' maintaining a financial base. Sometimes it's difficult to become financially sound," Brown clarified. Being financially sound brings about the subject of participation. Both lack of and over participation can affect clubs. "An awful lot of kids get involved with an awful lot of clubs and find they're 'spreading themselves a bit thin. They then have to cut something, which is usually club membership," Brown continued. Among the learning experiences and opportunities clubs offer, the social aspect appears to be comparatively important. "Fellowship is one of the club's main purposes, also, through clubs you can increase your knowledge in different areas that are not covered during school," senior Eric Evans added. "The clubs' purposes should be to provide learning and experience beyond the classroom, also to serve the student, school, and community," junior Chong Kim said. Whether the reason for joining a club is the interest, purpose or to socialize, there seems to be something for every student. "We have every kind of club there is to be interested in. lf we don't, it isn't difficult to get one started," Hubble said. "We have a good club department," Brown said. "There are enough clubs available that almost anybody with enough interest can find one to participate in." ctlualins clubs! 137 L 'tw 5 lmziftll Ji. Q.. .lu .L-Exggz. . . .. ..lv, .

M,- xw-:' , l Quill 8a Scroll 1 NHS Change in initiation date motivates club's involvement Early induction promoted enthusiasm and activities in National Honor Society. "It was because a larger group is more capable of performing and having more activities than a smaller group," president Phil Bennett explained. "A larger group is a stronger group and also getting the new members is bene- ficial to the group because it gets people involved sooner." The induction on Nov. 24, consisted of 71 NHS initiates. The club contained a total of 105 junior and senior members altogether. To qualify for membership, juniors had to rank in the top five percent of their class and seniors in the top ten percent. Four qualities sought were leadership, serv- ice, scholarship and character. The guest speaker at the early induc- tion was Larry Dickerson, grants consul- tant in the Office of Development and planning at William Jewell College. "I was happy with our speaker, be- cause he hadibeen in Honor Society him- self and I felt we could relate to what he was talking about," secretary Lisa Lin- hardt said. "He talked about life and how the hard work we had done so far would help us in our future." Besides regular meetings on the third Thursday of every month, several activi- ties were planned. "One of the activities we planned was ice skating," vice-president Teresa Mc- Mahon said. "We didn't have as good of a turnout as I would have liked to of had, but everyone seemed to have a good time." NHS members attended Waldo As- toria again for their annual banquet. This year, though, the members saw "Death- trapf' "The annual banquet usually has a good turnout. All of us officers just hope everyone enjoyed the activities planned for the club," Lisa concluded. Doughnut sales provide hope for 'classy' journalism banquet Quill and Scroll, a national honor club for journalism students, sold dough- nuts every Wednesday before school. "We sell doughnuts so we can make money for the journalism banquet in the spring," Terry Andersen said. The Spring Journalism Banquet was the club's main money-making incentive. Last year the banquet was held at U-Smile Inn, but Terry hoped the doughnuts sales would bring in enough money to enable Quill and Scroll's banquet to be held at the Radisson Muehlebach. "We're trying to make money so in- stead of having the banquet at U-Smile, we will go with class to the Radisson Muehlebachf' Terry said. Each year new yearbook and news- paper staff and positions were announced at the banquet. This was also when old and new Quill and Scroll members were recognized. To be a member, a student must be in the upper one-fourth of his graduating class, must be in the Journalism Depart- ment, and must be in the top of his jour- nalism class. Because of the standards set forth, some members believed Quill and Scroll was more of an honor society rather than a club. "I think Quill and Scroll is more of an honor society than a club. It's not an activ- ity club," senior Amy Weld said. "Just to be at Truman and be in Quill and Scroll is quite an honor because Truman has one of the top Journalism Departments," Terry added. As president, Terry felt he may have faulted at his job, because of not having club activities, but expressed a hope for a more profitable organization. "I feel it is a privilege to be president. I may have faulted a bit with my job as pres- ident, but we plan on having meetings in the future so that we can become a more profitable and productive organization." Quill 81 ScrolV139 Minor changes motivate boost in membership Some minor changes made by Na- tional Art Honor Society prompted a boost in membership and club activities. "At the first of the year we fthe remaining members from the previous yearj met," senior president Celia Gracia said. "We decided to 'open' the member- ship." New members had to be at least an Art II student, hold an S grade or better in art and carry at least an M average in all other subjects. Before, they used to invite only par- ticular students to be members. Now, if you want to be in it and you meet the qualifications, you can," Celia said. These changes sparked the member- ship to grow from six to almost 35. Though it motivated the club to plan more activities, like a trip to the studio of Kan- sas City artist Frank Szasz and to Hal- lmark, it didn't stop all of their problems: "There is stronger interest this year by more students," co-sponsor Janice Ma- lott said. "We've had good response from field trips, but not to any of the social activities. We haven't had any strong money-making projects." The club's annual Progressive dinner had to be called off because of a lack of interest, and its major money-making pro- ject, school t-shirt sales, didn't get started until mid-March, almost three months be- hind usual. These problems left some new members in confusion about the club: "The field trips open us to a variety of different types of artists," senior Pat Du- chene said. "But sometimes the activities are unorganized and seem to be put off until the very end."

"The idea of singing telegrams came up early in the year in some of our meet- ings but most people thought it wouldn't work. After we go the idea okayed by Mr. Brown, we decided to give it a shot," pres- ident Brenda Buckley said. The telegrams, combined with the Thanksgiving turkey sales, were intro- duced to raise money for the club's annual scholarship and year-end banquet. - "Last year, no one knew how the turkey sales were going to go and they turned out to be a success. We're hoping the same will happen with the telegrams," Brenda added. The telegrams were delivered on Fri- days during lunch. The fees were S2 for a standard-lyriced telegram, and S4 for a personalized one. The club furnished a list of standard lyrics including ones for birth- days, holidays, etc. "This is a new way of earning money without selling candy," senior Julie Mur- phy said. "I think' we have the talents to pull it off." Besides earning money for the club, Tri-M members had another goal they wanted to accomplish through the tele- grams: fighting to make themselves known. "We want to make people more inter- ested in the club, and at least let them know who we are," vice-president Lana Jensen said. "Since we are a Music Honor Socie- ty, we figured this was the best way to use our talent to make money," Brenda added. Tri-lVlf141 T J Mu.- 4,4 ,uf l Members raise extra finances collecting cans Thespians spent a majority of their time concentrating on the club's budget. V "Our biggest problem this year was our financial situation. We needed the money to have our banquet. The trophies and renting a place to hold the banquet all comes out of the club treasury," vice-pres- ident Glenn Snowden said. Thespians is a club for people who are interested in the theater and to be- come a member, a student must be in- volved with two plays, either as actors or as members of the stage crew. "We want to have the banquet for all the people who were involved in the plays this year, either acting or on stage crew," Glenn said. "The banquet is not only for club members but for people who partici- pated in any way." To help support the budget the club earned S60 at Christmas by taking a one- act to area elementary schools. To add to this profit they sold Easter baskets filled with candy. "We thought the Easter basket idea was different because other clubs and organizations sell things on holidays but nothing is ever done on Easter," sponsor Kat Tucker explained. The club also tried another new idea, collecting aluminum cans. "It was a project that hadn't been tried here at school yet. l think collecting the cans was a good way for the club to get money because people usually have extra cans they're willing to give," senior Celia Garcia said. "We heard of other people getting a lot of money and we figured with all the people who drink Coke and having the machines here at school we could get quite a few cans. Besides getting money we are helping to clean up the school and recycling America's aluminum," Glenn concluded. ..- Thespians Thesp1ansf142 i J' Above: Thespinns, Front row: Lisa Mc- Cartney, Lana Jenson, Chong Kim, Debbie Driskell, Dwila Heath.

Sponsor Karen Garrison said she felt that tournaments gave students more than just competition: "It teaches them first of all good competitive spirit. They learn what it is like to achieve a level of expertise on their own and responsibility," Garrison said. "When you win, you feel an accomp- lishment other kids don't," junior Tom Cochran said. "You use your head instead of your physical abilities." "There is more to 'learning than just the books, like talking to people and ex- periencing their feelings," senior Richard Wilson said. "It's exciting when you work on some- thing for a long time and then you finally get to show someone what you've done," junior Karen Elgin added. But the tournaments did have some drawbacks: "They ruin the weekends and take a lot of time to prepare for. l still enjoy going to them and I learn a lot," Tom said. "The judges are a problem. Some- times I think they get anyone off the street to judge," Karen said. "Most of them don't know what's going on." "Tournaments are time-consuming and inexperienced judges do tend to judge on personal tastes rather than on the qual- ity of the material," Garrison confirmed. Some club members felt other stu- dents stereotype them unfairly: "NFL is not a bunch of debaters who are unsociable, just people interested in expressing themselves," president Barb Paxton said. "That is what the tourna- ments enable us to do." Members said they felt their club had a special kind of closeness. "We're a lot closer than any other club, plus we have the advantage of hav- ing our own class,', Barb said. "There's a feeling of unity with the members of the squad," Garrison said. "We're not just another club. We're a family," vice-president Jeff Beck said. NFU143 New ceremony less expensive, V I O more satisfying After years of expensive initiation banquets, National Spanish Honor Socie- ty tried something new and decided to make it a tradition. "We held our initiation at school last year and it was great," Sponsor Casilda Rice said. Instead of having a celebration dinner and initiation at an expensive restaurant, NSHS decided to make the initiation an all-day affair and the ceremony open to anyone who wanted to attend. "We had the kids dress formally and wear colored ribbons throughout the school day, it was a real attention-getter," Rice explained and added: "I think they deserved that extra at- tention for being intellectually outstand- ing." After school, the ceremony was held in the multi-purpose room. "We wanted more people to come, and this way, the attendance really is bet- terf' Rice said. "No one will have to pay S15 for a reservation. Teachers, parents and stu- dents will feel freer to come." Many of the students were pleased with the new idea. "I was glad my mom could come without having to pay," junior Jenny Hol- comb said. "A lot of my friends were there, too." ' Some students thought it made initia- tion into the society less of an honor. "I think they should have a banquet because it makes it more of an honor and a bigger deal,'l senior Tony Salazar said. "I liked having the banquet," Rice said, "but so many of our kids are active in a variety of organizations that have their banquets the same time we do, that we had a lot of kids who just couldn't handle the added expense," Rice explained. "I don't think the rest was neces- sary," Jenny said, "what we did was fulfil- ling enough for me and should be for oth- ers, too." .... NSHS NSHSXI44 I........-..., . ,-,. ,.,.,-,. - --+..a LL.

They sold flowers for seven days and delivered them on Feb. 13 to third-hour classes. "We are probably one of the most financially secure clubs in school because of the Carnation sale," president Julie Mur- phy said. When asked why they sold carna- tions, Julie said, "It's different than just selling candy and it's more successful." "We do two things different than other clubs. We always give flowers to the teachers and a dozen to Bess Truman for her birthday." The distribution in third hour is dif- ferent from the usual first-hour deliveries: "We wanted to catch Vo-Tech. be- fore they left and if there were mistakes, we would have time to fix them," Julie said. Feb. 11 was a snow day which could have hurt flower sales because the next day was the last day to buy: "We thought the snow day would hurt it, but it just made the last day a madhousef' Julie said. "We made the most money on the last day and sold about half the flowers," junior Angie Comstock said. Eighteen hundred carnations were or- dered and more had to be purchased at the last minute. "The night before, we ran short of carnations and had to go pick up more. We don't know exactly why," Julie said. And sponsor Ann Sunderland said, "The flower sale was a success. We sold all the flowers ordered and the delivery went well." French Club! 145 X Service projects provide trails for nature park Ever wonder where nature trails come from? If they're at James A. Reed Park, chances are they were made by Truman's Science Club. Early in the year, after finding out what use they could be to the park, they cleared away paths for nature lovers in the area. "We just took our shovels and cleared away all the leaves and twigs and things," president Libby Hoelscher ex- plained. "Then we spread chips all over it so it would stay dryf, Service projects were not all Science Club participated in. They also went bird- watching at Squaw Creek. "We saw some bald eagles," Libby said. "lt was pretty neat. Although these projects didn't cost them any money, others did. This was why they had fund-raising projects. Among the least-liked was the paper drive. "It didn't do a whole lot of good," sen- ior Carla Farris said. Senior Tony Vincent also had nega- tive feelings about it: "The paper drive was really fun," he said sarcastically. Though the fund-raisers were dis- liked, they did allow for many fun activi- ties. "It lthe money from fund-raisersl goes for things like spelunking and the canoe trip," Tony explained. This past summer, approximately 20 members of the club went on a three-day trip of camping out and canoeing. "We traveled 30 miles down the river and we were so sore! We started out at nine in the morning and didn't get back until seven that night," Libby explained. It may have been a rough trip but Mother Nature was kind. "We had beautiful weather," Carla said. All in all, the trip was a success: "We really had a good time," Libby concluded.

JETS Club performed different types of experiments, including "rocket propell- ing." JETS basically gave the students deep insights into various fields of engi- neering. "JETS has given me a more realistic view of careers in engineering. l'm inter- ested in engineering for the future," senior Glenn Carter said. Students went to whichever meetings they wanted. There were no certain re- quirements involved: "If someone sees something that they are interested in, then they go. You are not pressured to go to all of them," junior Todd Parker said. "There are no obligations at all. You just go to the ones you want,', junior Kurt Klint said. JETS participated in different types of activities, including a field trip to Black- !Veach. The students were given a tour through the building and were able to vis- ualize how it would be to work for an engineering firm. "I enjoyed going to BlackfVeach. It showed me what an actual engineer does during the day. lt givestyou a glimpse of the type of surroundings you would be working around," Glenn said. "I liked going on the field trip and the other events we did. The topics that were discussed were really interesting," senior Mark Hill said. JETS enabled students to be aware of the different fields they could take up in the engineering field: "JETS gave me an over-all outlook on all the areas of engineering," Todd said. 'KI was interested in drafting and engi- neering and that was what JETS dealt with," Mark said. "It led me to a career choice as a draftsmanfl Jets! 147 Jobs give security to student, N , Q . 4 L provide money for necessities College fees, car payments, money for marriage and knowledge of workers' rights were a few reasons students were involved with Distributive Education Clubs of America. 'Seniors Kimm Redman and David Mancini were two of these who were involved in the course for one or more reasons. "DECA has done a lot for my career because Mr. Jackson got me a job with Farm and Home Savings. I worked in Kansas City for the summer and then I moved out to Lakewood where I have my own office. They fFarm and Homel are going to send me to college and pay for it," Kimm said. David earned money for college and car payments through the program. Through a two-year course, students were able to learn things from union bene- fits to the basic rights of a worker. "We learned what to do and how to know if your boss is taking advantage of you," Kimm said. Students also had the opportunity to Girls participate work for a grade and their working output was reported to a DECA teacher. "The teachers really check up on the students," David said. "They've been out to my work' twice already." Many students felt DECA was a very good course with a lot of advantages. "I think that anyone who is trying to decide on a career or doesn't particularly like school and they want to get out early to earn money should take the course," Kimm said. David felt that many people said that they were going to take DECA just to get out of- school. "It's really not that way," David said. "I work almost every day during the week and by the time I get out of school I start making money because I have to have a job in order to stay in DECA or they will kick me out. You can't just sign up for the class thinking that you're going to get out of school early, because you can't. You have to have a job and stick with it." in secretarial while mixing education, business Combining school and work was a common occurence for the 36 Supervised Office Occupation students. These girls left school after fourth hour to go to their place of employment. They were required to be a senior and to take two hours of clerical or two hours of secretarial studies each day. Unlike most employed students in high school, these girls received grades, as well as pay, for the work they did. Sponsor John Shinn, Business Law and Business Management teacher, visited the girls on their jobs fifth and sixth hours. They were also graded by attendance and a rating sheet filled out by the employer. The annual SOO breakfast for the employees and employers to meet on an informal basis took place at the beginning of November when regular students were on break from school. Jerry Winship, vice-president of Blue Valley Bank, was the guest speaker. Along with this usual event, one SOO DECA SOO student, Linda Toner, received a job working at Truman as a secretary. She is the fifteenth student to do so. As for obtaining the jobs, the majority of girls received some help from Shinn. "We send them to the job, but they fill out the application and actually apply for the job," Shinn said. alt makes it a more realistic situation." Most of the SOO girls said they really enjoyed their work and getting out at noon. , "I like it," Lori Squibb, employee of Unvarnished Truth, said. "It's a change from going to school six hours a day and you learn a lot from it." According to Shinn, any problems they had weren't with the girls, but with circumstances that couldn't be controlled. "The number one problem is the economyfl he said. "lf somebody's busi- ness fails it's hard on the girls, too." l DECAX 148 1 I , I mu... V, . I L: .fx I ' f U -4' fr- ' . I fs-Z if X . f f Q .

"I think one of the things that hurt us this year, was Mrs. Baker's illness. She handles all the finances," editor Vicki Bat- terton said. "I think another reason is inflation. lt's hitting everybody," she added. "And with the state of the economy, I don't think it's going to get better." "In a few years, there won't be hardly any club activities at all left. No one has enough money for banquets, or for any- thing like that. It just really hurts sales," Vicki said. . Money may have been the biggest problem faced by the club, but student response to the contest was up. "I talked to Mrs. Howard about a week after the second contest started and she said that we had already received more entries than the first contest," Vicki said. With limited pages, LAS encountered several problems with short stories: "Short stories cause a lot of prob- lems, because they take up so much pa- per. They take up too many pages, and we need to sell more books, so we need to get a variety of different authors," presi- dent Kathy Ek said. "Since there are two contests, for the short stories, we are going to publish the two first places and the best of the sec- ond," Vicki explained. "I would like to get more pages, even if we had to cut out the photography," she added. "I would rather have more poetry and short stories than pictures." The winners of the contests, which get their work published in the "Image" were based solely on merit: "We cover up the names, so when they're judged, nobody knows who wrote them," Kathy said. "Anybody can enter, because we have outside judges," Vicki added. Even though the problems existed, LAS still managed to produce the "Im- age:" "This year we could have made it fthe "Image"J fantastic, but no one had any money to buy any of the things we sold," Vicki said.

T.-.-Chess Club.l Concentration puts group first in tournament Check and checkmate were the only words heard in the room as members concentrated on their game. Chess club grew to be one of the largest, though one of the youngest in the area. "We have 25 members which is one of the largest in the area," president Jeff Kuenne said. The team also competed in one tour- nament and placed first. "We got 21 out of 25 possible points," senior Mark Moore said. "That gave us first out of 16 teams." The club is only three years old. "Our sophomore year Jeff fKuennel sent around a petition to organize a club for those interested in chess," senior Kev- in Hedges said. Playing chess wasn't the only reason the club was organized. Jeff explained the different reasons: "The club was organized to help teach people how to play chess. lt also helps those who know how to play to improve. It gives members a chance to compete and it's also a social organiza- tion." The seniors who helped organize the club expressed some concern towards its future: "There is a lot of senior involvement in the club," senior Todd Harris said. "We didn't have a very large turnout from the juniors and sophomores. When the sen- iors leave, there won't be much strength left." Though there was some doubt as to whether the club ,would continue, the only girl member, sophomore Kelly Moore, expressed her hopes: "I really hope the club continues. I'm really doing well and I like the game.

The travelogues are slide shows on travel to different countries. The majority of people who went were elderly. "The senior citizens seemed to enjoy it," junior Shane Hills said. Interact, as a service club, was there to serve refreshments and receive- dona- tions for the club. "We did travelogues as a service pro- ject. It was the major fund raising project Interact did," president Shelley Hendrix said. Club participation at the travelogues posed no problems this year. "There wasn't any trouble in getting kids to go because it's fun," Shelley said. "I thought it was kind of fun and interesting to see all the people that nor- mally wouldn't go out,'? junior Angie Comstock said. Usually Interact projects encompass more than just travelogues, but the club found no one who would sponsor other projects. "Our sponsor is Mr. Moore, the prin- cipal at Palmer. Because he's not here at Truman, it's hard to get together with him to plan a lot of activities. It really does hold -us back," Shelley said. "I think it's a waste of the club, because we could be doing other things if we had a more available sponsor," senior Angela Bone said.

SAE 1 Club continues donating funds despite decline Student Action for Education con- tinued giving to charities despite its de- cline in size. This year SAE was the smallest it has ever been. At one time it was the largest club in the school, but has gradually de- clined to this year's five members. Even though this is true, the club continued to give to charities. The members were in the club basi- cally for two reasons: they want to be teachers, and they like to give to charities. "It makes me feel good to help peo- ple. I like giving things to people without them having to give me something in return," senior Laura Minthorn said. The club donated S50 to AFS to help bring a foreign exchange student next year. They also sponsored Mr. Hubble on the Walk for Mankind. Two of the club's major activities were observing a teacher of their choice and participating in Honor Teacher Week. "What I like about the club is getting to observe the teacher because I think it gives us good experience," president Vicki Batterton said. 'I Members said they liked to help peo- ple by giving and sometimes this was the only chance they had: "It gives me a chance to be a part ofa charity club. If I weren't in it, I don't think I'd ever really contribute," vicevpresident Becky Fann said. Some ,club members agreed that giv- ing to charities helped in preparing for a teaching career. "I'm a giving person and I like to give a lot. In a way you have to be a charitable person to be a teacher. The club gives you 3 experience for when you're a teacher,, because I think you have to give to your students to be a good one," junior Stf phanie Wilson said. SAEX1 Involvement adds spirit to activities Larger attendance at meetings and more activities made AFS Club different than most other clubs this year. "Everyone says the clubs are just going down at Tru- man. I don't know why AFS is so big this year. Maybe because it's new and differentuto the students here and they're inter- ested in what AFS has to offer," Ann Sunderland, AFS Club sponsor, said. "AFS is larger this year. There are more activities com- pared to last year," president Chong Kim commented. "We had a hayride, an international dinner and a Christmas project." Involvement of club members was a key to the success of these activities. "We have a lot of good, hard working people in our club. I think apathy is on a much less degree than with other clubs. There's more enthusiasm," Chong said. "I think we're close and everyone is willing to work," sophomore Kim Lynch stated. "It seems like we do more things than a lot ofthe other clubs and we get more involved in different activities," senior Becky Fann added. While some said activities helped the club grow, others said it could have been because there were three AFS students this year. , "Having three AFS students has made AFS more evi- dent to students at Trumanf' Sunderland said. "This year there are more AFS students that people can come in contact with," junior Stephanie Wilson stated. The high membership of AFS Club could have been attributed to any of these reasons already stated. But accord- ing to Chong, fate had a hand in the growth of the club: "In past years there were only five to seven members. This year, with three AFS students, it couldn't get any worse. lt had to get better." AFS AFS! 154 Below: President Chong Kim plans AFS week at a regular meeting.

"If it weren't for the executive officers, nothing would get done,'l president Pete Hedlin said. Shelley Hendrix, vice-president, commented, "It seems like in almost all the activities the officers do most of the work. Alot of people offer to work or help but when the time comes nobody pulls through." "I enjoy the work I do for Student Council. I wouIdn't have run for the office if I didnIt," Shelley said. The representatives were the link between Student Council and the student body. Their responsibility was to help, and inform: "Representatives are the only way that we can get the students' views. They have a big job and I don't think they really realize it." "Some representatives are really supportive, but there are also some that are there for the fun times," Gerald Sloan, treasurer, said. With limitations on help, some activities never got off the ground. "We can't do a lot of activities because we don't get a lot of help. Sometimes it is the officers' fault because we don't think to ask the representative," Shelley said. "There's also so much red tape in the office, it's hard to get anything done," Pete added. Students who weren't even in Student Council volun- teered to help out. l'We have a great student body. I feel they are behind us. We had people that were not even representatives help us on the Christmas kisses and the Homecoming dance," Peter commented. Those willing to work and give up their time helped to keep Student Council working. "They fthe sponsorsl do so much for us," Pete said. "They are always there. They help support us and one is always at our weekly meeting. I think that's why Student Council has survived, because the sponsors care," Shelley said. With more active representatives Student Council could cater more to the students, Gerald said: "If the students want a better Student Council, they should be more selective in whom they elect as their representatives."

"We have to keep changing ideas and activities because we keep getting new students with different interests," Shelley Hendrix, vice-president, said. "This year's projects have gone fairly well," Pete Hedlin, president, said. "The Christmas project was well-received. We had to buy extra candy kisses and the Homecoming dance had a record attendance. Though activities like the Homecoming dance and the Christmas project were not totally changed, officers did try to improve them: "We went through the Salvation Army this year, because people complained families in the past-really werenlt needy, and the families we helped were well-picked this year," Pete commented. Candy kisses were a new item sold in bags of 8-10 in place of candy canes for Christmas. "The kisses were very successful, not only because of profit but because it was a new thing," treasurer Gerald Sloan said. The most successful activity was the "Almost Anything Goes" competition among sophomore, junior and senior classes. "It was the most successful, because it got most of the students involved and it was a real spirit lifter," Gerald said. "ln the past, Student Council hasn't done anything like it and it helped promote class and school spirit," Shelley com- mented. "Having it during school helped a lot, because some people will do anything to get out of class." Participating in a summer Student Council camp helped the eight officers create their new activities. "We get most of our new ideas at camp. We learn how to use the student body and it brings the officers together as one group. It would be hard to come up with ideas without going to camp," Shelley said. Even with new ideas that are brought up and thought out at every meeting, some were still not satisfying. "I think we're trying to do what the students want," Shelley said, "but it's hard to please everyone." 1' l Above: AfterAFS Week, Chong Kim, AFS chairman, announced to the council the outcome of the week's activities.

' Jobs, attitudes within the sport and other activities steered many athletes away from the courts and fields this year. Volleyball coach, Chuck Harris, expressed that the sport should be a prime activity in the life of the athlete: "It's their decision. You have to dedicate yourself to the sport and if it's not one of your main priorities, yould better quit." Devoted team members verify this: "If they want to come out and do the work, fine. If they don't want to work they might as well quit,'I senior Penny Waggener said. Senior Susie Lindsey thinks sports are replaced by what the person feels is more important: "I think, especially in the senior year, other needs and interests become more important. You've just played sports so long and you get burnt out. If you aren't satisfied with the team you give up. lim not sure if I will go out or not this year." Robert Clemons, who has coached many fifth through eighth grade students and who has a son on the Rockhurst football team agrees kids get tired of it: "The trend seems to be that sports are becoming a secondary item. If they start early in grade school, kids get all kinds of trophies and banquets, so it's no big deal in high school. Sports don't seem to be as glamorous as they used to be. Probably because of all the major- league problems and scandals." Clemons also thinks parents don't push sports as much as some are led to believe, but for senior Craig Blankenship this was not true: "I was going to tell my mom at the beginning of the summer that I wasn't SIP? going out for football, but then she started talking about how excited she was for practices and games to start and that she couldn't wait, so I didn't. I finally did quit after the first intersquad game," Craig said. Attitudes of coaches and competition also eliminate team hopefuls. The opinion of some is that much of the fault could be pinned on the coaches: "A majority of the problem where the kids lose interest is because of improper coaches. The parents don't really demand the kids be so good, but the coaches really push them," Clemons said. "Sometimes the coach shows favoritism," said one student. "At last year's first basketball practice, we kind of split up into J .V. and varsity. She fthe coachj picked a girl who was a sophomore to play with varsity when she hadn't even seen her play. She had just heard about her." The need for cash and cars forces some of these athletes out of sports and into the working world: "I got a car and I got a job so I could pay for it,'l senior Rhonda French said. In high school some sports-oriented students begin to examine the long-term effect of athletics in their future. "I think the reason a lot of people quit is they realize they aren't going to do it in college and they begin to spend their time finding other things to do," senior Sandy Davies said. In the end, loyalty and love for the sport determine whether the athlete will endure another season: "It takes a lot longer for some, but I think that after awhile some of them just realize they aren't cut out for it," Clemons concluded. And as Rhonda said, "We fJulie Walker and Rhondaj went through a lot in basketball, staying after school and all. We don't care if we pick up another basketball again. I'm tired of it." carts ---Boys' Cross Country Above: Although illness cut his season short, Steve Walker did participate in the William Chrisman meet.

'Rv- "V, I qui' I J li 4 5 f nf-"aj-3 X-Countr gains despite changes Despite a coaching change and a lack of summer train- ing, the cross country team sent one girl to State and one boy to sectionals. After last year, Coach Monte Gagliardi, the former cross country coach, moved to Montana to fill a position at Montana State University. Gagliardi's move left a teaching position open at Truman, and just four days before the season began, Coach Rex Stephens became the new cross country coach. To get ready to run the 3.1 mile cross country course, one must run over the summer. Most of the team did not run because of the coaching mix-up: "We didn't know who our coach was going to be and everything was messed up. There was no motivation to run," junior Richard Gannaway said. "Most of the other cross country teams ran about 500-1,000 miles over the summer. Since our team did not run over the summer, we could only run about 50-60 miles a week and in some cases 70 miles, but that was still behind what the other teams were doing," Stephens said. "Not running over the summer cut back on my base of running. Your base is your build-up of endurance. lf I would have ran just 400-500 miles over the summer, it would have kept my base of endurance up to where it would have not hurt so bad coming into the cross country season and maybe would have helped the team out better," junior Steve Walker said. Like the last few years, the girls had to work out with the boys. Most of the time, the girls had to run in boys' JV meets, but some schools did have separate classes set up for the girls and boys. "I think we could do a lot better if we received more fcontinued on next pagel Boys' Cross Countryf163 """x"""QFl'LB!.I if 4 Runners gain . . . Icontin ued from page 1631 recognition. Being able to practice with the boys helps when it comes to competition, but we need to be an individual team," senior Angie Bohanon said. "The girls are not recognized on a conference level yet. There is no conference championship for them, but things are quickly changing. I think there is a real good chance the girls will be recognized next year. If that happens, they will probably be able to have their own coach and be separate from the boys," Stephens said. In spite of having to practice with the boys, the girls had some success this year. Junior Liz Clough qualified for the State Tournament and finished sixty-fourth out of more than 150 girls. "The boys' season was not really good. Most of the team was behind when we started. We had only two returning senior runners, Scott Sharkey and Lynn Snowden. A lot of the team was made of underclassmen. We had several really fine juniors and some good sophomore runners with a good chance in the future if they keep on improving," Stephens said. "Junior Troy Morerod who I felt was the best runner, qualified for sectionals at the district meet. That's not too bad considering that sectionals are a step up from the State meet," Stephens said. A In addition, Stephens says he feels the runners on the cross country team are special people: "The preparation for cross country is grueling. Cross country takes dedication and it helps to have some God-given talent to run. If the person has the dedication to run when there is snow on the ground or if it's 110 degrees in the summertime, then he will be good at cross country. It takes a lot of work, but mostly it takes a unique kid to be a cross country runner." Girls Cross Country!164 in , A l I I Wit 'fl , . I i l If . , ,A -v., .-, F '- I A ., .21 -.- I -jqWI"fE", .

"lt was a combination of quality, skills, a desire to win and most important continuity," Head Coach Chuck Harris said. "When you have a mixture of fundamentals and unity, you have a winning team no matter how you go," Assistant Coach Donna Shuler added. This year's team members agree their success came from team unity, and a desire to win: "We won because we were a team, we weren't individu- als on the court, Everyone was dedicated and had a desire to win," senior Penny Waggener commented. ' "Everyone wanted to win together - not as individu- als," senior Johnna Meyer replied. Lack of size and the loss of five starters hindered the team, but a good defense helped the girls achieve their first conference title: "We made up for our size through our defense. We had to start from scratch, but we had the skill and the willingness to win, this was the key to our winning conference," junior Sherri Miller said. "Conference was our first goal, because it had never been achieved before by a Truman volleyball team," senior Mendy Chandler said. Coach Harris thought the team would go undefeated in conference play, instead of being 8 and 2: "When they were up they could beat anybody. Actually I thought we should have won conference solely. We could have easily been 10 and 0 rather than 8 and 2,9 Harris said. . District was next in line, in which Truman defeated Raytown South the second time for the title. ln sectionals, Truman again defeated Oak Park for the right to advance to third and fourth rounds of state. Truman split the first game of round robin play with Hickman Mills and then defeated Far- ,mington and McCluer North to advance to the finals of state competition, where they met rival Hickman Mills for the second consecutive year. "I knew they could beat Hickman if they were up, and they were," Shuler said. "We wanted to do it for each other and go out in style," senior Liz Commino said. "Playing Hickman again put pressure on us. We had to show people we had the ability and the skill to beat them for state," senior Mendy Chandler commented. lcontinued on page 1731 Varsity Volleyball!170 Right: For the second consecutive year, the girls volleyball team claimed the Missouri State High School Volleyball title, by defeating Hickman Mills 15-13, 15-5.

Junior Varsity finished the season 6-8, theirfirst losing season ever. State, title . . . lcontinued from page 1701 Truman defeated Hickman Mills 15-13 and 15-5 to receive the class 4A State Volleyball title. "We've always had a rival in Hickman: we always want to geat them and we did for two consecutive years," Penny sam . "I couldn't believe it, the year went so fast: it's like a dream come true. I have to look at the trophy to believe it," Liz summed up. Junior Varsity couldn't quite find the drive it took and suffered their first losing season at Truman: "The drive was there at times, but then it wasn't," Shuler said. "lt seemed that we lacked a certain type of team unity," sophomore Jean Ann Ford added. Lack of skill was not the cause of a 6-8 season. The players agree it was a lack of team togetherness and inexpe- rience that hampered them at the beginning and middle of the year: "We let ourselves down because we couldn't achieve the goals we set. People had good qualities physically but we lagged behind mentally and in experience," Jean Ann said. "We lacked togetherness because nobody would work together at the beginning. lt seemed like we were individuals on the court," Geri Bisges said. Toward the middle of the season Shuler took a different approach to the problem of team unity by working hard on individual skills and conditioning: "I think conditioning plays a big part. My policy is if you are in shape and have the talent you can stand a lot more pressure," she said. "Shuler pushed us to our limit. l was able to find out what I was capable of doing," sophomore Cheryl Wheeler replied. As the season came to a close, the J .V. was back in the winning circle by winning four of the last six games: "l was happy because we started playing more as a team: our inexperience wasn't hurting us as much," junior Brenda Brown said. With the team unity restored, team members hold high hopes for next year's season: "The four sophomores that started this year obtained good experience and it should carry on through next year," sophomore Jean Justus said. "l think we gained a lot of experience this year which will help us a lot next season," Shuler summed up. Junior Varsity VolleybalI!173 .Tvgrgity Football '-f"'f"1"b .fit +-fMetQs,.i.,. .

Seniors Joel Walsh, Byron White, and Doug Ruse each shared the responsibility. Ruse's reflection of the season is similar to most team members? "When l think about the season, going 6-4, it kind of makes me mad. I think I could have tried harder and got my head into it more. A lot of people felt that way. " Right: Coaches Talbott and Coffman view the field from the sideline. guf b .. Varsity goal fails at play-off game Finishing a 6-4 season, placing third in the Big Six and falling just one game short of a play-off berth would usually sum up a pretty respectable season for a football team - but to Truman's 1980 team it was a disappointment. "I think we all felt like we could have done better. We started out the season okay, but then we started falling apart towards the middle of the season," senior lineman Doug Car- penter said. One reason, one painful reason for the Patriots' disap- pointing season was because of numerous key injuriesx, "Injuries sure did make a difference this year. We had a lot of injuries at key positions like running backs, linebackers and defensive backs out all throughout the season," Head Coach Jim Talbott said. 'lWe had great expectations at the beginning of the season, but as things went along it started looking gloomier. One thing for sure, though, we didn't lose to any bad football teams." Of Truman's four losses, three were to State Title hope- fuls, Raytown, Raytown-South and Blue Springs. The game between Truman and Blue Springs was the season highlight, however Blue Springs won the game in the final seconds with a 37-yard field goal, 30-27. If the Patriots had won, they would have gone to the state play-offs. "That Blue Springs game was a killer. Here we work our butts off the whole game, and I really thought we were going to win after we scored that last touchdown and then Bruder fBlue Springs' field goal kickerj comes out had has to show-off to everybody," junior lineman Kevin Miller said. "I was running down the field looking at the clock and I thought that time was out, but the ref said that he got out of bounds with one second left. I think the ref ripped us off." Miller, referring to the play which set up the game- winning field goal, was named to the First Team All-Area Defense along with senior Byron White. Senior wide receiver Kevin Herring and senior lineman Scott Burnett were named to the First Team All-Area Offense, also. According to some of the seniors on the team, who have been playing together since ninth grade and had lost only three games in three seasons, team unity and an apathetic feeling may have caused problems: "We were really cooking until the team unity fell apart. I felt like the Blue Springs game was the only time we played like Icontinued on next pagej Varsity Football!175 Goal fails . . . Kcontinued from page 1751 a team. Everyone was so up for that game," senior quarter- back Doug Ruse said. "Even though we lost, we still kept our heads up. When you win, you win as a team, and when you lose, you lose as a team." - "I felt like all the seniors were disappointed. I wanted to win badly and then, there were some guys who seemed they didn't care and that really burned me up," Carpenter added. Senior fullback and linebacker David Cordes, who was probably the biggest loss because of an injury, led the team in touchdown runs with four and was the team's fourth leading rusher, even though he only started in two games. Cordes underwent knee surgery for the second time in three years and missed three-fourths of the season. "lt was such a drag having to get hurt, especially since it was my senior year. I think I would have made a difference to the team," Cordes said. Talbott had high hopes for Cordes' season: "We had hoped that David would have been a 1,000- yard gainer and he probably would have if he wouIdn't have been hurt." White, senior offensive and defensive line standout, who was named as the Examiner's Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the game, led in tackles with 58 unassisted tackles and 68 assisted tackles. The Pats' leading rusher Rusty Case, who gained 512 yards and averaged 6.9 yards per carry, was named to the Second Team All-Area offense and the First Team All- Conference offense. Ruse hit 58 percent of his passes and connected with Herring 22 times for 429 yards. Herring's 22 receptions and seven touchdown catches set a new school record: "I was happy with my season, individually, but it was a big disappointment finishing like we did. I thought we had great potential to go a long way and I thought we would have finished with a better recordf' Herring5said. Truman's biggest triumphs of the year were a 42-7 win over Lee's Summit and the 40-12 season finale against Hick- man Mills: "The Lee's Summit game was the only game where we were healthy and we beat the snot out of them. I don't want to use injuries as an excuse, but they sure made a big difference," Carpenter said.

"We had a fairly successful season, we were playing with not a whole lot of depth in some areas, but the team played well I thought,'l Head Coach Roger Pauk said. Last year, as sophomores, the team outscored its opponents 285-65 and lost only one time. The single loss was to Raytown South, who along with Blue Springs defeated the Pats again this season. The season began with a 9-6 win over Raytown and then 'the following week the Patriots pulled out of a close one, a 15-14 decision over Shawnee Mission South which gave the team an added boost of confidence. "I felt like beating Shawnee Mission was one of our best games. It really helped the team out," junior Carl Lathrop said. The next two games were marginal defeats for Truman. A 20-8 win over I..ee's Summit and a 35-6 romp against Winne- tonka. The season was shaping up as a good one, 4-0. After week five, the Pats lost their first game to become 4-1. Raytown South shut down the Pats offensive arsenal and posted a shut-out, 16-0: "That was tough having to lose to South again. It's the third straight year that they have beat us and I'm getting sick of losing to those guys," a frustrated junior Lee Anderson said. The sixth week had in store yet another thriller, a 13-12 win over down-the-street rival William Chrisman: "That game kicked. I just loved beating those guys. I thought we had a really good season and welll be pretty good next year," junior Brian Howard said. The last game of the season was a losing effort against Blue Springs, 15-0. Junior Ken Wicker was the leading rusher for J .V. gaining 351 yards, scoring five touchdowns and leading the team in points scored with 30. Junior quarterback Andy Williams completed 44 per- cent of his passes for a total of 402 yards. Tripp Haight was his leading receiver with 11 receptions, 201 total yards and two touchdowns. The leading defensive "rowdy" was Jeffery Ricketson. He had 18 unassisted tackles and 21 assisted tackles. I About seven or eight juniors played varsity this year and did not see any action at the J.V. level, but team members felt it did not present a major problem and Jeff explains why: . "We'll be on their team next year and with their expe- rience and us coming up, everything will work out." Junior Varsity Football!178 ' 1 E, J. V.

QL V "'9"Pk Two schools join as wmmng team The sophomores, comprised of some of the players from last year's Palmer and Bridger teams, recorded a decent 7-2 record into the first chapter of their high school football career. Head Coach Bill Beyer was pleased with his team's performance. In the only two games which they lost, they were just six and four points away from an undefeated season: "I was very pleased with the outcome. We started in our first four games with two wins and two losses, but we won the last five in a row to finish with a pretty respectable seasonf' Beyer said. ' In the first game the sophomores posted a 32-22 victory over Southwest and the following week lost a heartbreaker to Raytown, 16-12: "I think if we wouldn't have lost that first game to Raytown we might have gone undefeated. The only other game we lost was to Lee's Summit and we should have beat them," wide receiver Chris Keene said. As week three rolled around, Truman easily handed Van Horn a 36-8 defeat and the following week was the disap- pointing loss to Lee's Summit, 6-0. The final five teams which Truman conquered were Winnetonka, 12-03 Raytown South, 14-7g William Chrisman, 21-05 Oak Park, 28-6 and Blue Springs, 36-12. The sophomores' individual talent was highlighted with the running of Jack Lockwood. He set a new sophomore school record gaining over a thousand yards. He ran the ball 159 times for a total of 1,045 yards, led the team in touchdowns with eight, and led the team with the most points scored, 48. Leading the team defensively was Jim King. He had 29 unassisted tackles and 58 assisted tackles. Depth of the team was part of the reason for its success: "A lot of kids were able to play different positions and we were able to substitute pretty freely," Beyer said. "I enjoyed having good depth and they played a really good second half of the season."

All I could do was cry," a happy Angie replied. Last year's Homecoming queen, Suzi Washburn, pre- sented Angie with the crown and long-stemmed roses. "It was just an honor to be elected attendant, but to be chosen as queen, I just can not believe it. It is one of the biggest honors at Truman," Angie said. 'Angie's court consisted of seniors Rhonda French and Darla Vaughn, juniors Michelle Blankenship and Tani Stanke and sophomores Karman Sharky and Melinda Spry. "Being a queen candidate was excellent, especially since I have never been one before," Darla said. "I was thrilled, it really surprised me that I was chosen to represent the sophomore class," Melinda said. This year's theme, "Somewhere over the Rainbow," took much preparation and student involvement. "We started a month and a half ahead of the night and we finished the day before the game. We have really gotten to know the night janitors very well," Pep Club vice-president Tammy Duckworth said. Pep Club's S200 budget to arrange the backdrop did not cover the expenses. . "We spent S200 alone on crepe paper, that's not counting how much it cost us for the cardboard and other supplies," Tammy said. But despite cost of the red, yellow, green and blue rain- bow, it blended in with the night's atmosphere: A "It was beautiful. The whole night was excellentf' Rhonda said. "They could not have picked a better night. Everything went so smoothlyg it was just extraordinary," Angie concluded.

A total of 3676.67 was collected by the queen candidates, Colin Braley, Jim Johnson, Gregg Lowe, John Williams and Richard Wilson. Gregg gained the crown at half-time ceremonies: "It was really quite a different feeling," Gregg laughed. "It was all for the senior class. That's what I was doing it for. This is my last year and l had to make a contribution, so I said why not." Several other guys participated in the game. Coaches for the seniors were Kevin Herring, Matt Kraner and Byron White. Juniors Greg Fansher, Kevin Miller, Phil Rellihan, Todd Rose, Jim Steele and Andy Williams coached the junior and sophomore team. "lt was fun coaching the girls," Matt said. "They were really getting rowdy." Jim agreed: "It was really fun. The juniors said when they were sophomores some didn't get to play. We tried to get all the girls a chance to play and they did." As referees, seniors Rusty Case, Pepin Conde and Doug Ruse completed the male participation roster: "We just called the basics and didn't worry about tech- nical stuff," Doug said. The way the girls reacted seemed to shock Doug the most. "lt got pretty rough out there," he said. 2l've never seen girls act like that." Sophomore Chris Richardson, one of the players, rep- lied, "It was rowdy. Everyone was out for blood. Our main goal was to win." "It was only supposed to be a game and it turned out a little bit rough. I guess it was that junior-senior rivalry," junior Sandra Walter exclaimed. "A lot of people played just to get back." Even though some of the girls were out for revenge, many played to support the school and to have a good time: "I played because it's fun and it is about the only chance to get together with all your friends and do something," senior Lisa Reagan said. "When you get out there, you just want to win. You don't concentrate on trying to get somebody." Lisa continued, "It's really important to the seniors fto winl because they have never lost and it would be an insult." Like tradition, the seniors did beat the junior-sopho- more team with a score of 6A0, but like every year some wondered if the game were fair. "We had practiced a lot. If a lot of the plays would have called on them fseniorsj, we would have probably beaten them," Sandra concluded. "We had a lot more talent on our team." Powderpuff! 185 Single loss stains dual meet record A single defeat marred an otherwise perfect dual meet season for varsity swim team members. The boys opened the season by winning their first dual meet against Park Hill. "At Park Hill it came down to the last relay and we won by three points," senior Pete Hedlin said. The last-minute victory assured swimmers of an exci- ting season. "That meet was sensational," senior Bob Henley ex- claimed. "We needed everybody there. Every person was essential to win." As the season proceeded, the wins anticipated became realities. "The key was with our depth in all our swimmers, not just first but also second, third and fourth," Coach Doug Allen said. So, as the strong swimmers continuously captured first, other team members also placed, accumulating points during the meets: "We outscored the other teams by taking first, third and fourth quite a bit. All year long we relied on our depth," junior Jeff Austin explained. I The Patriots suffered their only loss.to conference rival, Raytown South. The final score of the meet was 82 to 90. . "As far as talent goes, we were about the same," Bob said. "They just came out on top." Led by a strong group of seniors, the team bounced back to beat Raytown. "It was a very senior-led team with Henley, Hedlin and Gamble," Allen commented. "All the top six swimmers were seniors except Brent lnce and Steve Warnock," Jeff said. Seven team members qualified for the State meet. Five of them were previous qualifiers: "We didn't expect a whole lot. The suburban area teams have greatly improved at the State level. We havenft caught up with St. Louis yet, but we're getting closer," Allen said.

A Two relays, a medley made of Hedlin lbackl, Mitchell fbreastl, Dod fflyl, and Gamble ffreel and a free relay made up of Henley, Ince, Warnock and Gamble represented Tru- man at State. Brent and Bob each qualified to swim in two additional races. The boys, as in years past, were a close team and displayed much togetherness. "I think we did better this year than last year because we were real unified," Peter said. Paul Boyd expressed that real spirit has shown through yells and team breakfasts. "It made the team real rowdy and up for the meets." Allen added, "Varsity swimmers feel a sense of unity, the swim teams at Truman are always very spirited. If we could have won on spirit and morale we'd have had an unde- feated season." Some of the boys had been swimming together since fifth grade. Brent explained their togetherness made a much closer team. However, the success obtained during dual meets failed to carry over to Conference competition. "I would have liked to have done better in Confer- ence," Allen said, "The team was just more suitable for dual meets than Conference." At Conference the main problem stemmed from the fact that points earned from third and fourth place swimmers were unobtainable. "We all swam our best," Brent said, "but unfortunately so did the other teams." An injured Jerry Fleshner added to the problem: "With no divers, we gave away about 30 points, that hurt us as much as anything," Brent added. Though enthusiasm was dampened by a disappointing conclusion, a satisfying record is behind. The Pats went 9-1, having lost only one Blue meet. Swimmingf189 ' ' ""f""'itIin4Z'f ' ,I tilization of members makes club successful Baking cookies, setting up team tables and cheering for the wrestlers were all a part of being a Wrestlerette. "We are kind of like a pep club to help support the wrestlers," junior captain Angie Pierce said. "We made boxes for the guys and put cookies and candies in them. We also set up team tables." Wrestlerettes grew this year and had the largest number of girls than ever before. "We had 51 girls join. That's the most we have ever had. On the average we had about 30 girls for every home meet. And the girls who joined were interested in working, rather than just joining another club," captain Donna Dins- more said. "I think the reason we had so many join is that it's all volunteer and if they werenit good enough to make cheer- leader or something they came to something they didn't have to try out for," Donna added. The girls said they felt a lot more involved in Wres- tlerettes than they could in a regular pep club situation. "We're a lot closer to the wrestlers than a pep club would be to a football team or a basketball team," Donna said. "Wrestlerettes are a lot more involved because they support only the wrestlers," Angie added. At least one wrestler, Bert Gross, agreed with the girls: "It's a lot closer because there are only 13 of us and like in football there's a lot more people. They did a good job this year. They were always there." Unattended meetings create disorganization "Not organized" was the name of the game for some Tickers this year. "There was no organization. We didn't have enough meetings before to know what was going on or what we were doing," senior Beth Katherman said. "lf we just had a little bit of organization, it would help. You never know what's going on," senior Lori Greenfield commented. Although some girls said Tickers were unorganized, the president, Angie Bohanan, disagreed: "I think we're pretty organized as a club," she said. "We had 43 girls this year. It was more than last year." There may have been 43 members of the club, but not many of them were active, according to Lori. , "When we had meetings, no one came," she said. -"I felt sorry for the sophomores, because they didn't know what was going on." Low attendance to meetings seemed to cause a chain reaction of disorganized activities and swim meets: "You're supposed to have three timers on a lane, but all year we've only had about two. Every single swim meet we have had to scrape for girls to time," Lori said. Swim meets werenlt the only thing affected by unor- ganization: "Some guys got left out when we decorated lockers. That was really bad. A lot of the confusion would have been cleared up if we would have had more meetingsf' Beth said.

Troy Morerod demonstrates his ability against Hickman MilI's wrestler. Hard work sends wrestlers to state Drive for perfection and hard work led senior Phil Bennett and junior Roger Gross to a berth in the State Wres- tling finals. ' "I wanted to do well in District. I was happy that I won, but I did not expect it," Roger said. "I was surprisedg my goal was to do the best I could when I could and let things happen," Phil said. Bill Beyer, head wrestling coach, said he felt it was an accomplishment for both of the team members: "I was pleased that they qualified. Even qualifying means they were in the top 16 wrestlers in the state." Phil defeated a wrestler from Ruskin to advance to the state competition where he was defeated in the first round. "I thought considering my knee injury, I did a fair job coming back. I wanted to do the best I could, and did." Roger defeated a wrestler from Raytown South to qual- ify for State, but he was also defeated in the first round. "After I won District, I started working hard. l just wanted to do my best." The team marked a 5-5 season over all. Team members said they felt they had a good over all season considering the injuries. "We had good team spirit and everyone tried hard, but we had a lot of injuries and that hurt us a little," senior Todd Harris said. "The team over all did better than expected, but it was disappointing because we had a lot of injuries," Phil said. Beyer, though, was pleased with the season: "I was very pleased with the over all season, it was much better than I expected." The team highlighted its season by taking first in the Oak Park tournament. "We tried hard to do well in the Oak Park tournament, and we succeededg we took first place," Todd said. As the season came to a close, Truman was put into a larger district tournament with area power houses. This affected them in the team standing as they only took fourth place. "Our district was a lot harder than before. We faced I continued on next pagel I Y ,I Wrestling! 193 ---Ifrg..-uwranns..-.x.1 - 1 State meet ...... fcontin ued from preuious pagej the eventual state team champions," senior Bert Gross said. Two team records were broken this year. Bert had the best over-all season and Paul Landess set the most over-all reversals with 34. Wrestling is an individual sport as well as a team sport, and members said it takes a lot of drive and work to come out on top. "It was not so much the competition, it was my own drive to do the best I could," Phil said. "I wantaed to do the best I could and worked hard so I could do my best,'l Bert said. Junior varsity members also found this to be true of their individual efforts: "I tried to work hard, I just wanted to have a .500 season, and I worked for next year," sophomore Mike Woods said. "I worked hard, knowing I had two seasons left," Tom Beebe said. Along with their individual work, they said they had a good team effort as Ia whole, as they went 6-4 for the season. "We were spirited and worked hard as a team," Mike said. "I'm very happy with our season, we worked really hard," sophomore Andy Holloway said. Beyer said he was pleased with the season, but said injuries hampered them: "They had a good season, considering the number of injuries, but they worked hard." Like varsity, the highlight of their season came when they swept the Oak Park tournament: "We were two wrestlers short, but we went in wanting to win and we did," Mike said. Wrestling! 194 ' A , ww .

Hile became the first male coach of a girls' basketbdll fedm Gf Sn Varsity succeeds under new coach Despite a coaching change, the Truman girls basket- ball team rolled to a successful 26-3 overall season. "They worked extremely hard, and their season proves it," Head Coach Pete Hile said. The team members are also happy with their season. "I'm really happy with the season we've had. Some- times we've had some tough breaks and lost, but we're just as good as any team we've played," senior Susie Lindsey said. "We've done what we set out to do, we won confer- ence and one tournament," senior Mendy Chandler replied. "We reached our goals, we went through some ups and downs as a team, but we progressed as the season went on," junior Sherri Miller said. Hile took over the team after the resignation of Carole Sapp, just two weeks before practice was to start. "I was kind of worried. Fortunately, I stayed around basketball enough and knew what to expect," Hile said. The members were also a little nervous about getting a new coach, but felt at ease once the season started. "lt was a different experience. We had to get used to a new personality and a new way of doing things, but after we got used to it, we just started to play," Mendy said. "We were glad that we got a new coach this year. At first it was a little scary. We did not know what he was like or how to act. But personality wise we get along great with Mr. Hile," Susie said. "We weren't sure how he would react. We had to get used to him, like he had to get used to us. The team personali- ties clicked with his, we could relate to him as a team," Sherri replied. Hile agrees that the change was difficult for both sides. "It was a difficult transition for them and me, but I think it was more difficult for them." The main goal of both Hile and team members was to win the conference. "We wanted to have some fun and we wanted to win conference outright. It had never been done before by a girls' basketball team at Truman," Hile said. The team won the conference with a 9-1 record, their only loss coming to Oak Park. "I was really happy for us, we worked hard. I thought we deserved it," senior Allison Witcher said.

During the course of the year the team played in two tournaments. In the Fort Osage tournament they took first place and in the Truman tournament they took second. "We played well in the Fort Osage tournament and in the Truman tournament, but Central was a well rounded team," Mendy said. "We made a lot of mistakes in the Central game but overall we played a good tournament. We knew we had to play well in the Fort Osage tournament because Cindy was sick," senior Penny Waggener said. The only other loss came from Hickman Mills. "They played a good ball game. I felt it could of gone either way," Hile said. "Hickman Mills was a disappointing loss. We should of won, we had worked hard for itf' Mendy said. "We felt like we should of won. It was disappointing, we wanted the game," Penny said. Hile also became the first male coach of a girls' basket- ball team at Truman: "l think the male or female part doesn't affect it." The girls though, found it advantageous to have a male coach. "He seems to know what we need at that moment and he tries to get us up," Mendy said. "We like the man figure. He controls our season and how we play on the court, but off the court he doesn't get involved in our personal lives," Susie said. Hile says he 'doesn't think of them as girls, and team members agree that this is a goodlview to take: ' "There is a time for play and a time for work. We know what he expects of us.

IO SIGTIU H18 Julie Smith remains composed as she Hard work, poise motivate success ' Junior Varsity attained a 12-4 season with hard work and a winning attitude. "They worked hard. The people from Bridger worked hard to maintain a winning attitude, and the girls from Palmer wanted to prove they could play basketball," assistant Coach Lyons said. "We had a lot of team spirit and we wanted to win. We tried to work as a whole, and to do our best for our potential," sophomore Nancy Paulson said. The team got off to a slow start by losing their first three games, but salvaged the season by concentrating on the rest. "We worked for an undefeated season, but after we lost our first game we worked on winning the rest," sopho- more Nikki Noland said. "I was pleasantly surprised, we lost the first three games, but then we won the rest," Lyons said. "We all tried to work for each other," Nikki said. "We worked good as a team on the court. We just worked well together," junior Rhonda Greenfield said. "After our three losses we started really working together as a team, and during practices," sophomore Kaye Kubli said. The Pats bounced back from their three losses to win their next twelve games. "We went uphill after our third lossg we reached our peak at the end of our season," sophomore Becky Howard said. "We worked even harder after our three losses, and it showed. We won all the rest of our games," Nikki replied. "Just the thought of being on the team was a good experience. I thought it was neat to be a part of such a good team," Rhonda said. "It was a good experience. I learned how to work as a team and a member," Kaye said. 'KI learned a lot about playing with guys' rules. All I've played before was with girls' rules," Nancy said. Most members are optimistic about next year's sea- son: "We had a good season, and next year it will be the same people. The junior highs had good seasons too," Nikki said.

"We didn't really have one player who carried us through the season. lt was really five kids scoring about the same amount of points and giving us about all we could have asked of them. We had four players averaging in double fig- ures and I think balance was our strongest point," Head Coach Rex Stephens said. The Patriots had just two returning seniors on the team, Jerry Spratt and Rusty Case, but Stephens felt that inexperience did not play a major role during the season: "The first couple of games we were kind of inconsist- ent, but as the year wore on the kids started gaining some confidence. After winning the Jewell tournament we started playing better. And I don't think the juniors on the team were really that inexperienced," Stephens said. The four who averaged in double figures were all jun- iors, led by Curtis Nelson who averaged 15 points a game and finished eleventh among area scorers. Tom Bodenstab, Mark Hafner and Brad Bond all averaged between 10 and 15 points a game. Seniors Case and Spratt rounded off the team with Case's ability to quarterback the offense and Spratt's tough defense up the middle. Case said he felt like the season was successful, but thought the team could have done better: "I thought we could of won some more games. We messed up and didn't play as well as we could have in some of the games, especially in the game against North Kansas Cityg we really blew that one. lt was great to beat Blue Springs in the William Jewell Tournament and beating Chrisman is always great. This year's record was pretty good and the team ought to be pretty good next year with all of the juniors returning. They gained a lot of valuable experience which should help them," Case said. The highlight of the season was taking first place at William Jewell over the Christmas holiday. Truman defeated Chrisman in the semi-finals and then knocked off the favored Blue Springs in a close one, 53-52. Hafner drilled both ends of a one-and-one situation with just five seconds remaining to give the victory to the Pats, Spratt was named to the All-Tourney team. Truman's record going into the new year was 8-2 and the possibility of gaining a conference title was there.

The Wild- cats went on to beat South and win the conference. Truman's quest for a State playoff berth almost fol- lowed in same fashion as the Jewell Tournament with the Pats defeating Chrisman in the semi-finals of the District Tourna- ment and facing host Blue Springs in the final, but the Wild- cats maintained the edge and ended Truman's season with a 74-55 loss. "I thought we played very well against Chrisman and I think there were some things we could have done which would have enabled us to beat Blue Springs. We beat them once and were capable of doing it again. I think finishing 18-9 shows we had a good year. Five of our nine losses were to South and Blue Springs. Those two teams were ranked in the top ten in the state. We've got a good ball club and we're looking forward to next year and I believe we are one of the top ten or 12 teams in the metropolitan area," Stephens said. ' Aggressive players want to win and the fact Truman did 'not go to State is present in l'Iafner's thoughts of the season: "I'm pretty satisfied with the season. I just wish we could have gone to State. Maybe next year we will. I think we'll be pretty good. Beating Blue Springs and Chrisman made me feel pretty good and I ,think we all felt we lost a couple of games which we shouldn't have, but that's the way it goes." "You,re always disappointed not to win, but on any given night anything could happen. Just the same that you lose some you shouldnit have lost, I think we might have won one or two that maybe we shouldnit have won, either. So it can really go either way," Stephens said. "I think this year was basically a learning year." Nelson, the team's leading scorer, sums up the season. "We had our ups and downs like any other team. I think we were one of the best teams around and I thinks we could have beat every team we played. Next year we ought to be really good and I'm going to set a goal to score more points. "Hopefully next year we can win most of our games and go for it all in the State Tournament."

"We never argued," junior Andy Williams said. "We just had fun out on the court playing together." "We played good as a team, Bertoldie is a great coach and everyone had a winning attitude," junior Jeff Howe said describing the success of the past season. Lack of individually outstanding players on the J.V. team was made up for in the unification and togetherness of the team. "The other teams had more talent, but we played harder and together better," Andy said. Coach Forrest Bertoldie added, "We had a lot of dif- ferent people who contributed." Andy also said because of less talent, Coach Bertoldie worked the boys harder in practices. "When we go to practice, we know it will be a good practice," Jeff said. "Basketball is a game where you have to have addi- tional motivation. It's needed to do more painful work," Ber- toldie said. One area that greatly benefitted from constant atten- tion was defense. "We had really good defense, our zone was really good," said junior Jim Pollard. "We worked hard on defense," sophomore Gary Mc- Culley said. "We worked hard on everything." Height was definitely not a problem for the Patriots. "Our size helped. We had big guys," junior Kent Spiers said. "We had some good players and experience from last year," he added. Truman suffered its first loss from William Chrisman in the seventh game. "They played and shot really good that game. Toward the end of the game we didn't shoot good and got into foul trouble," Andy said. Kent added, "We should have done better. There was one or two games we should have won." One of those games was Oak Park. "When we lost against Oak Park it was away. After the long bus ride we weren't very loose, plus we took the team too lightly. They played harder than we did," Jeff recalled. J.V.'s leading scorer and rebounder, Gary lVlcCulley highlighted the season by winning the game at Ray South by hitting a shot in the last second of the game. The Patriots had a 9-1 Conference record to tie with Ray South for first. "Our winning didnlt just happen, we worked for it and we had the best team in the Conference," Gary said. we aaa .tim cgrovv- sw df ood JLLCQJJQ cctcuooclb M591 QQ T ,vi Far right: Junior Jim Pollard searches for an open man against Raytown.

They also finished second at the Oak Park Invitational Tournament. The boys only lost three games this year. They lost to Oak Park, Raytown South and Raytown. "We screwed up on a couple of games this year, but overall I think that we did a good job considering the amount of gym time we got," sophomore Zach Zuber said. "They run so many programs at the same time in this school that sometimes there is not a gym available and we simply didn't get to practice," Coach Bob Tonnies said. When the boys had time to practice, practice they did, and as a team. "Neither of the teams were very good last year. I think that Coach Tonnies made us work harder than any of the other teams at this school. We had more discipline and had to hustle," sophomore Kevin Whitmore said. "Team effort is important because we couldn't have gotten where we are if it wasn't for the whole team. The whole team did get along with a really good coach that helped us through the year," sophomore Jerry Wynn said. "I think that Tonnies is great because he really helped by teaching us. He knows what he is doing and he knows basketball really well," Jerry continued. Coach Tonnies said that he feels that it was the kids who made the season good. "This team didn't have any real superstars. It was just a lot of kids who rotated around. I think the kids on this team were better competitors, they knew they had to compete and this was a key to our success. I feel really good about the team.

Because of a lack of attendance at previous dances, the Courtwarming Dance was canceled, breaking a tradition set years ago. Student Council President Peter Hedlin explained that Student Council did not want to risk losing money on the dance, so they offered it to Pep Club instead. However, Pep Club also declined the invitation to sponsor the dance. "We felt like if Student Council didn't want it, it probably wasn't going to go over too well," Paula Mitchell, vice-president of Pep Club, said. "Obviously, they felt it wasn't going to work or they wouldn't have offered it to us." But, Pep Club did take responsibility for the formal ceremonies at the Truman-Raytown South game. Senior Susie Lindsey was crowned Winter Sports Queen and her court consisted of seniors Teresa McMahon and Cindy Kluska, junior Sue Johnson and sophomore Jean Ann Ford. Susie felt that canceling the dance and keeping the ceremony simple was a good idea. "For one thing, I liked it better because it was lots more practical. Also, it was good because it was lots more relaxed. I think people were kind of relieved. I think there are some people who would go to the dance just to support the school but really not enjoy it, so it's not really fair to themf' Paula agreed that keeping everything simple was the best answer. And, she went on to say she believes this "casual" attitude students seem to have, would have made any other Courtwarming plans almost impossible. "I asked people what they thought of Courtwarming and I think mostly people didn't care one way or the'other," she concluded. "I really don't think anyone would have cared that much if we didn't have any of it, and it's just too bad it's like that."

The amount of school spirit is just not there any- more," sponsor Jane Holliway said. The days when Pep Club was a big deal and people joined to support their team became a thing of the past: The girls just work for the points and not for the spirit," Holliway said. And this lack of participation bothered some people: I realize Pep Club isn t their life senior Tommi Likely said "but it's nice to have girls interested. lfeel like Wheresthe loyalty? I-lolliway said. Why do they join if they don't care? However in the beginning many people did care but I didnt have time for it sophomore Jill Coldsnow said. "Many people had more things they wanted to do. They fitted school around their jobs and Pep Club around school," Holliway said. Another problem was that many joined Pep Club as a stepping stone to other activities: I joined so I could try out for drill team sophomore Sue I-Iallford said. I guess the thing that got them to join was the point system and trying out for something," Holliway said. Why all these problems with apathy? We don t take buses to away games Sue said And it's not worth anybody's effort to drive. The points are the biggest hassle senior Johnna .Meyer said. People not yelling is also a problem. School spirit as a whole isnt what it used to be Holliway added. What will happen next year is still an unanswered question.

N I Drill team adapts to more members Unlike past years, the Truman Starsteppers have had to face a boost in size and the advantages and disadvantages which accompanied this change. f'At first I was scared we wouldn't be able to get enough uniforms, props and other equipment for the extra girls in time for campf' senior captain Pat Duchene said, "but luckily we were able to track down some old members." Finally, after making it to camp intact, the squad had to be separated on different floors of the dormitory: "There wasn't any way of getting around it," sponsor Sheri Adams said, ubecause there were so many of us." "It made it a little bit hard," senior officer Christy Hard- wick said. "You didnit know what was going on at times." However, this did not hinder any kind of team spirit: "Without all the spirit and the faith we had in ourselves and one another we could have never won Outstanding Drill Team," Pat said. "I think we were one in spirit and one in purpose," senior Pennie Langton said. One week later the five officers won Outstanding Officer Line and received a perfect score of 100 at Officers camp: "I had no idea we could work so well together," Kathy Markham, senior officer, said. "It was a good feeling to know all that work would come to a perfect score." Yet, the cost of activities such as camp increased because of more girls and higher prices: "It was an extra burden because you couldn't always do the things you wanted to do because they cost so muchf' junior Kim Davis said. Although busy with money-making projects like selling buttons, Halloween candy bags, tupperware, and shampoo, and holding car washes and clinics, they participated in outside performances not directly related to school: "We had the opportunity to perform at a variety of places each different because at some we competed and some we were there for exhibition," Pat said. Some of these performances included a Chief's game, Halloween Parade, a Booster Club meeting, Bridger-Palmer game, NAIA basketball tournament and a special invitation from the Blue Springs Drill Team to perform at one of their home basketball games. "You want to get recognized as the best because you strive for that and because you can always do better," senior Johnna Meyer said. "So it was quite an honor for another drill team to ask us to perform for their home audience." rA,J "Q Working for long periods of time without a break if became second nature for the squad even after tryouts were 4' over and new slots were filled.

StarsteppersX215 Q 3 .QR --nu:-maids:-az...Lrv -1-' Holliway's interest earns girls' praise I A concern for school spirit and a willingness to get involved was the reason Jane Holliway decided to become cheerleader sponsor. "I'm always concerned about school spirit, and I think the cheerleaders are a good example of the kind of school spirit we need," Holliway said. The cheerleaders also saw I-Iolliway's concern and felt she did her best to get everyone involved. "She's concerned about school spirit, and she wants to bring it out of the students," Laurie Pierpoint, Blue Squad captain, said. "She really cares and tries hard to bring about school spirit," Debi Weld, White Squad member, replied. After the resignation of Mrs. Bruch, Holliway was asked to take over as the new sponsor. "When Mr. Brown was looking for a sponsor, I told him I'd be happy to do it because I was already Pep Club sponsor and it would be a lot less trouble for me if I could be both," Holliway said. Tracie Linville, Blue Squad member, and Kim Downey, Red Squad member, agree that it is advantageous for Holli- way to sponsor both groups. ' "I think it brings the whole group closer together,', Tracie said. "It makes us feel closer together with each other, and she takes a closer interest,'l Kim replied. Since Holliway became the sponsor, money-making projects continued as usual. "We had a car wash this year, but we didn't make too much. We just aren't too organized," Andrea Rodak, White Squad member, said. "We held a raffle this year, and we made a lot of mo- ney, we were happy with our efforts," Tracy replied. "We sold candy bars,,and we had a couple of car washes," Kim replied. Holliway was impressed with the responsibility the cheerleaders took on in the money-making projects. "The girls are so responsible, they work hard and take full responsibilityf' Holliway said. Then she added, K'Only the Blue Squad forgot I was supposed to win the hamf' This year the cheerleaders and Holliway are trying to get boys involved as yell leaders. f'Miss Holliday is trying to get Mr. Brown in helping us get boys and she is helping us look for them," Laurie said. "I think they will help us out a lot," Tracie added. Holliway was also concerned with the recognition of the cheerleaders. "I don't think many people realize how hard they work, I think they should get some recognition," Holliway said. The cheerleaders, though, were happy with the recog- nition they get from Holliway. "At the beginning of the year she sent us flowers and on Christmas she sent us Christmas cards, I think it helps get our spirit up," Andrea replied. "She gives us so much support and she stands behind us and our ideas," Laurie said. ' "She cares about me and our activities, and she is so easy to work with," Debi replied.

"We had to practice in the middle of a hot football field and there were not trees," junior Shelli Wahrenbrock said. "We had no nice practice facilities," sophomore Lisa Sandage added. For the first time the girls switched from a National Cheerleading Association Camp CNCAI to an International Cheerleading Foundation KICFJ Camp. "We were curious about the different types of camps," senior Laurie Pierpoint said. "It fthe campj was at K-Statef' senior Tracie Linville said. "We had a chance to be on a major college campus." Other reasons for the change included better recrea- tional facilities, and publicity received by ICF from the college cheerleading competition covered on national television. Cheerleaders' reactions to the change were both posi- tive and negative: "The ribbons given out said exactly what looked good at evaluation, so we knew exactly what we needed to work on," Laurie said. "Everything was close together," junior Cynthia Mc- Henry said. "We didn't have to run all over campus." But, all the girls agreed the bad points outweighed the good and said they did not plan on returning next summer. Tracie commented, "There weren't enough instructors for the amount of girls at the camp. And they were so much stricter." "We didn't have near enough practice time. We had a lot more time to relax at NCA," sophomore Jody Webber added. "NCA had better cheers and taught us more," Andrea Rodak concluded.

' One major decision is what to do after graduation. Some marry and go to work, choosing not to continue their education because the basic classes are stressful and unenjoyable: "I don't know. Maybe I feel pressured in them. I feel like I really have to get it done. I just feel extra pressure," senior Patricia Bruner said of her dislike of classes such as English and social studies. Others continue their education by going to college or a vocational school. In a survey taken of Truman students, out of 1,261 surveys returned: 815 indicated they plan to go to college after they graduate, 108 planto train for a job in a vocational school, 218 plan to work, ten are entering the armed forces and 110 are undecided. The survey implies the trend is for more high school graduates to go to college than vocational schools. Some students think otherwise: "I think more people are going to vocational schools. I think there are more jobs vocational schools can offer than colleges can," junior Robert Adams said. "I think it is really half and half. More people might be going to vocational schools because of the money situation," senior Lynnette Jenson said. Tuitions for a college and a vocational school could be close, depending on what school and how many years a student plans to attend. For the Automotive Technology course at Bailey Technical School, the tuition is 33.16 an hour with no financial assistance. For example, 195 days of the six-hour technology course would cost 33,697.20 For Longview Community College the tuition is S15 a credit hour for in the district, S22 a credit hour for out of district and S38 a credit hour for out of state. For University of Missouri-Kansas City the tuition is S802 a year or 334.10 a credit hour. These are the tuition costs for 1979-80. Counselor Sheila Pool believes students are becoming more aware of the vocational skills now than ever before: "I think, from a counseling standpoint and from the general population, people are becoming more aware of vocational skills. Before, it was' go to college or get married. There wasn't the awareness of what's out there. Now counselors and schools are introducing career awareness programs, career centers and making the information more available to the students." V Area high schools send students to the Joe Herndon Area Vocational Technical School in Raytown, and this year the school has more students than usual: 0 !'We have, this year, our highest enrollment we've had in the seven previous years of operation. I think this may be an indication of the growing importance of occupational skill training in the minds of young people as they go through a high school program, if it's available to them. And I think more and more of them are going to take advantage of it and use it," Ron Youngs, counselor-placement for the Vo-Tech school, explained. Youngs also said there is beginning to be more of an opportunity for vocational students: "In many occupations today, the money rewards are as great for someone with specific skill training, in that occupation, as would be the value of a four-year degree, out of a college or university." index i i i 4 i i V i 5 5 i 5 r I :i i s i F i.

N il? i, fi, 'rf eflection of klds seeking more than grades by Jeff Elhs o some students Truman High School is more than three words at the top of a diploma To some it is a world of sharing and learning experiences To others it is an important step in decision making for the future And to a few it holds some of the best days of their lives There are certam things about high school that I will never forget like the Morningstar concert and Mame and the Almost Anything Goes senior Julia McCormick said As sophomores students find a new atmosphere of learning and many differ ent personalities Ive met a lot of people that have influenced me this year I have so much more responsibility now The teachers here dont treat you like a little kid so you cant act like one sophomore Sara Landers said Juniors are a step further with a year s experience behmd them and another year ahead to look forward to This year was like opening night junior Jeff Beck said I knew all my lines and knew exactly what to do I wasnt one of the little people anymore Seniors face a year of decisions and questions of the future: My sophomore year was a real learning experience. I came in to high school feeling more like I 'was in junior high and had to adjust to someone being older than I was. My junior year was' my favorite because I wasnt a sophomore anymore and I didnt have the worries seniors have. This year kind of scares me because I have to decide what to do with the rest of my life senior Shelley Hendrix said. Through high school, many stu- dents find solutions that will help them with problems throughout their lives: "The people's attitudes toward me here have helped me to accept myself Julia said Once I knew what my llmita tions were it was easy for me to s ar heading in the direction I wanted to go Ive learned to cooperate with oth ers and have learned to respect author: ty I feel like I am finally moving up in the world junior Shelly Ashmore said Some students even question cer tain high school experiences Sometimes I wonder why they have us do all the stuff they do I do think high school will prepare me for col lege but I cant see using Algebra II in the grocery store Julia added Becoming involved with school activities is a key factor that many stu dents use to attribute their high school success Most agreed it meant more work in and out of school and all agreed it was worth it My three years have been success ful because of the chances Ive had to become involved Shelley said I learned how to act in many different situations and learned how to react to different personalities I also had to be able to account for the things I did and make sure they went okay The extra activities Ive been . involved in have helped me to make new friends and learn to deal with other peo- ple. Through school you learn more about yourself because you have to relate to the people around you junior Linda Kallmeier said. V Besides helpinguthem through high school some students relate their expe- riences to the future: Making mistakes and looking ba at them is going to help me later on junior Jeff Beck said. ' High school is always going to give me something to look back on, all the things I-'ve partici- pated in and all the special friends I've made."
