. . of kids who turn on to living
by Jeff Ellis A I
o teenagers really care anymore?
' . 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
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
"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
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."

. . 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
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
"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
. "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

The few days he didn't get high, he
usually spent staying home and crashing

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 ' '

and have a good time could be consi'
dered a party," senior Jeff Magel said.

enthusiastically, "tt's getting some 'wango

"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.

Besides physical changes, altera-

be made. Class and lunch schedules had
to be rearranged and certain classes had
to be moved to make extra room.

Youth 'chow down,' but not at home

school activities, etc. have become so

"We don't eat at home very much
anymore," junior Bob Morris said, "My
mom works nights, so I just go out and

In the past decade, the fast food

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.

Although cowboys have been
around for awhile, there is a new type of
cowboy these days - the urban cowboy.

"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

mechanical bull similar to the one in
"Urban Cowboy." It sits right out in front

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
"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
This proves to be true with senior
"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.

people, says Salyer.

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.

"It wasn't too bad because it was at

the players than the band members.

realistically portrayed by Suzy who is

rely on her ears to hear the things she can't

ignore sounds, yet she also had to listen so
she wouldn't miss her cues.

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-

Others don't like the Chuck lnzerillo

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-

to do: "I like going to it. It's a different type

Fundraisers break routine of school
An ordinary week for everyone else,
Feb. 2-6 was AFS Week, a variation in the
everyday routine of school.
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

land talked about their lives in their native
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
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
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.

"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.
"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."

life at Truman
by Jeff Ellis
or most students, life has existed
only in Independence. 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
A few of the cultures represented
are Dutch, German, Mexican, Korean,
Chinese, Polish, Hawaiian, Samoan and
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
"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
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
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. If everyone was the
same, how dull it would bell'

many students during their summer
vacations as they traveled with Ameri-
can Leadership study groups.
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-

Germany and found out that you had to

"We'd had a whole meal on appet-

Many differences were apparent to
the Americans and culture shock was
onceagain the cause:

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
"I told Bernise about John and she
taught me the different meanings of
words by sign languagef,
' Sign language is not very different

'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
"I took time to learn a skill that has
brought me closer to others less fortu-
nate than me."

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
"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
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

"lt was really exciting riding in the
nationals because it's like being inthe
Olympics and it's the closest you can
get to being a professional." I
He left with the second place title
and a five-foot trophy..
But Scott says he's going back
next year: - f
"l've got to get number one, then I
can settle back and just ride." I

Animals ofall kinds have been a
part of' sophomore Theresa Bascio's
iifamily. 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
"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-
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

leash," she said. "Sometimes it makes
people stop and look twice!"
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.

' A warning ticket found under the.
windshield wiper or a car being towed
away are the consequences of parking
in the school lot without a permit.
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
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.

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
"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

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
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
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
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
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
This seems to be the major concern.
All those for the program believed it
should be taught by all teachers, not just
"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
Project Write doesn't change the
teacher's original assignments. It does
change the way the teacher relays the
"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
"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.

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
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
The curriculum offers four classes
dealing with computer science, including a
new advanced class for math and science
With hopes for more classes in the
future, Harris expressed only one prob-

year or two. The biggest problem is com-

Students use class to gain
inexpensive college credit
Through a new program, some high
school students earned college credit in

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

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
"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."

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-

The tune is a familiar one. The lyrics,
however, are quite different:
"Juan Garcia tiene un perro
Que se llamo Bimbo,
B-I-M-B-O. . ."
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

basic nouns and verbs. We also teach
them everyday phrases like, 'My name is

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
For Becky, tutoring also helped her
understand more about teaching:
"Before, l thought, 'Wow, teaching
would be a breeze,' but it's really pretty
She also added, "It makes me realize
all the things-a teacher has to do."
One of the problems was new stu-

have to catch them up to everybody else in
Vicki also found some problems with

across, because we don't really know how

Though 'there were problems,- they
still found good points about their teaching
"I like it because I'm not only teaching
them, but Ilm also learning things myself,"
Tony also found it to be a rewarding
"Having a Mexican background, I feel
a great satisfaction in instilling cultural
pride in the children by teaching them to
speak Spanish," he said.

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,"
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
"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
"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
Many times the coaching was done
"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

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
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."

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
"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
"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
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,
"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-
"It's going to be something different.

Besides Pepin's extra hours in prepar-
ing the artwork, all of the staff faced time-
consuming tasks in the yearbook's prep-
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-
"It gives us more control on what is
going on," Pepin said. "It eliminates a lot of

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
"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-
'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
"I think we try to be open and listen to
both sides,'l she added. "Anyway, at least I

"It's the students' paper and should
be run by the students," Cliff said. "Mr.

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
"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
"I got a better feel for news than I've
ever had before," Julie said.

xperience becomes key
in preparing for office job
Experience was the key to why some
took the Secretarial Procedures or the
Clerical Procedures classes.
"I plan to get a job for my future. And I
thought the experience in the business
background would help mef' senior Lisa
"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
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-
"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
"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.
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

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
"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
"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

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
"I got a lot out of Vo-Tech. Its training

wood into objects, creating one of many projects In-
dustrial Arts students will make throughout the year.
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-
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
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
Students are graded on their partici-
pation in class, their effort, and the work
"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
"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.

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
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
The old machines were well-worn and
in great need of replacement, students
"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
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
each machine,'l Mary Robinson, sewing
- Interested students also used the ma-
chines for added details on crafts and
"If the students want, they can study
the instruction manual and use the fancier
stitching available," Robinson added.

"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 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

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."

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
"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
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 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-
"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-
"I think the students' drawing abilities
improved," Malott said. "A lot of the draw-

Technical music, nerves
compel extra practice
Technical music, nerves and finding
practice time plagued Varsity band mem-
bers. That is -- before they became mem-
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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"I pick very technical music for audi-
tion purposes. If I pick something easy I
can't tell how technical a player is," Love
The work put in by the students, and
desire to be a band member probably
accounted for the accomplishments of the
"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-
"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.

Performing is something Orchestra
members did more of this year. 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
Left: Orchestra members listed on page 228. Top: Having a limited number of wind players restricts the

rehearsal, so performances will sound better.
Small ensembles enhance
them and force them to read more mus-
ic," Love said.
"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
"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
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
"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.

Coilnfon bond of music
enhances unit of group
' A goal of being a 131 choir through a
common bond of music was the key fac-
tor in distinguishing Concert Choir.
"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,
"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
"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
"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

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
"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.

"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
"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
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."

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
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
"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
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
"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
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.
"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
"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 how much they have improved."

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
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
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
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
"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-
"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-
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-
"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.

Many club die
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
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,"
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
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,"
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
Among the learning experiences and
opportunities clubs offer, the social
aspect appears to be comparatively
"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
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

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
The induction on Nov. 24, consisted
of 71 NHS initiates. The club contained a
total of 105 junior and senior members
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

toria again for their annual banquet. This

"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
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-
Because of the standards set forth,
some members believed Quill and Scroll
was more of an honor society rather than
"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."

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-
New members had to be at least an

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
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." '

to raise money
The addition of singing telegrams high-
lighted the year for Tri-M, establishing a
money-earning tradition for future years.
"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,"
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
"We want to make people more inter-
ested in the club, and at least let them
know who we are," vice-president Lana
"Since we are a Music Honor Socie-
ty, we figured this was the best way to use
our talent to make money," Brenda

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
"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

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
"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
"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.

"No one will have to pay S15 for a
reservation. Teachers, parents and stu-

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.

a bigger deal,'l senior Tony Salazar said.

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.

"We made the most money on the

junior Angie Comstock said.
Eighteen hundred carnations were or-

the last minute.

carnations and had to go pick up more.

David earned money for college and

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
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,"
David felt that many people said that
they were going to take DECA just to get

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
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

circumstances that couldn't be controlled.

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
"What I like about the club is getting

ple by giving and sometimes this was the
only chance they had:
"It gives me a chance to be a part ofa

Becky Fann said.
Some ,club members agreed that giv-
ing to charities helped in preparing for a
"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.
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
"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
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."

Lack of participation by Student Council representa-
tives created problems for the officers.
"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,
With limitations on help, some activities never got off
"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.

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
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."

through new ideas
,Using fresh ideas and new activities, Student Council
aimed for school spirit and interest.
"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
"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,"
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
The most successful activity was the "Almost Anything
Goes" competition among sophomore, junior and senior
"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."

hanging interests and priorities
have led many students away
from sports. '
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
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
Senior Susie Lindsey thinks sports
are replaced by what the person feels is
"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
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
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,"
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
"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,"
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."

Despite a coaching change and a lack of summer train-
ing, the cross country team sent one girl to State and one boy
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
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
"I think we could do a lot better if we received more

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
"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,"
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 win State title
Unity and dedication blended together to bring the girls'
volleyball team their second consecutive state title.
"lt was a combination of quality, skills, a desire to win
and most important continuity," Head Coach Chuck Harris
"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
"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
"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 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
"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
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,"
"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
"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
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.

Above: One responsibility ofthe team captains is to meet on the field for the coin toss. 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

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-
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
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

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
"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
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-
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-
"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,"

Loss of juniors
doesn't hurt team,
With the lack of depth and the advancement of juniors
to the varsity team, the J.V. football team still managed to
compile a 5-2 record and live up to its pre-season expectations.
"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
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."

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
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
"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

reaches pot of gold
The Homecoming theme, "Somewhere over the Rain-
bow," became reality as senior Angie Zimmerman's pot of gold
came in the form of the queen's crown.
- "I did not expect to wing I was just standing there, then it hit
me like a brick wall. 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
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,"
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
"They could not have picked a better night. Everything
went so smoothlyg it was just extraordinary," Angie concluded.

outward appearance of five senior guys. 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
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
"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
"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
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.

called on them fseniorsj, we would have probably beaten

season for varsity swim team members.

by three points," senior Pete Hedlin said.
The last-minute victory assured swimmers of an exci-

essential to win."

So, as the strong swimmers continuously captured

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-
"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."
"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
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-
"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.

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-
' "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
"We had good team spirit and everyone tried hard, but
we had a lot of injuries and that hurt us a little," senior Todd
"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
"Our district was a lot harder than before. We faced

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
"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
"I worked hard, knowing I had two seasons left," Tom
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
"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.

Aboue: "To me they are not just girls, they are basketball players," Head Coach
Truman this year. Left: A break in the game's action allows team members a
chance to converse about strategy.
Pete Hile said. Hile became the first male coach of a girls' basketbdll fedm Gf
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
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.
"It was an honor, but we had it before the regular

season was over, it was neat to have the first uncontested
conference title," senior Sandy Davies 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
"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. In practice he may run us, but he
stresses the fact that it's worth itf' Susie said.

' 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
"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

peak at the end of our season," sophomore Becky Howard
"We worked even harder after our three losses, and it

team," Rhonda said.

Hopes for playoffs
An overall well balanced team seemed to be Truman's
key to a successful 18-9 season.
"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
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. Howev-
er, perennial power Raytown South knocked Truman off

twice while Blue Springs also beat Truman twice. 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
"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
"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
"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
"Hopefully next year we can win most of our games
and go for it all in the State Tournament."

Team still excels
Teamwork was the key in Truman's J.V. 15-3 team
"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 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-
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
"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.

As expected, the sophomore basketball team did well
this year with a 16-3 record. 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. It's probably one of the best, if not the best, sophomore
seasons ever at Truman."

The casual attitude of students seems to have invaded
almost every aspect of school - including the social life.
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

Too much apathy
Pep Club participation was at an all-time low this year
because of student apathy and lack of school spirit.
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.

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
"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."
"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.
V' "Our annual fashion show came about a month after
4' the new members were picked so we fseniorsl were still in the
:u picture until after the show," Pat said.
I "It was something we fjuniorsl looked forward to doing
with the old members," Kim said.
earns girls' praise I
A concern for school spirit and a willingness to get
involved was the reason Jane Holliway decided to become
"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
"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,',
"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
"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.

Despite heat spell,

One-hundred-degree temperature plagued the five-day
ICF summer camp attended by Truman's three cheerleading
squads during July 9 through 14.
"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
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

oday's teenagers suddenly shift to
young adults when they come to
life-time decisions. '
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
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
"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
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
For University of Missouri-Kansas
City the tuition is S802 a year or 334.10 a
credit hour. These are the tuition costs
Counselor Sheila Pool believes
students are becoming more aware of
the vocational skills now than ever
"I think, from a counseling
standpoint and from the general
population, people are becoming more
aware of vocational skills. Before, it was'

Above: As the year moves farther along, the juniors gain more
responsibility according to the type of choices they must make.
For example, when ordering class rings they have to decide on
styles, which will be affected by the price they can afford to
pay. Above right and far right: Finally passing the driving
tests contributes to the sophomore's added priorities and addi-
tional freedoms. Right: Jobs bring extra money needed for all
the seniors expenses during the year.
Q?" N il?
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
As sophomores students find a new
atmosphere of learning and many differ
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
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
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
