This allows such extras as the brightly colored uniforms of the Valley Central track team. Centralization I - fuses communities Mass-bussing is introduced he centralization war, 1959, was one we'll never read about in history booksg one we'll never be quizzed on. And this is fortunate, for even though it took place in our own community, few of us have ever heard of it. Maybrook, Montgomery, and Wal- den fought the war against New York State, which encouraged the three sep- arate high schools to centralize and threatened to reduce the area's funds if they did not do so. They fought the war against each other - community against community. The reasons against centralization were not always as sensible, as they were personal. A strong feeling of vil- lage pride and a distrust of all other communities lay at the base of the arguments against centralization. Ray Dulye, editor of the Citizen Herald, remembers that the fears ex- pressed by one village, could be found in them all. "A mother in Montgomery would stand at a meeting and say, 'I will not vote to centralize, I will not let my children go to school with those thugs from Walden' And a mother attending a meeting in Walden refused to vote for centralization be- cause she did not want her children attending school with the 'punks' from Montgomery." Parents did not stand alone against the state and centralization. Mrs. Di- Bello, who graduated from Valley Central in 1961, recalled what it was like to be a student faced with central- ization. "We didn't want it. As a fresh- man, I knew all the seniors. We had a graduating class of twenty-eight that year. There was a closeness . .. " Inev- itably, that closeness would be lost with centralization, and no one want- ed to lose it. Centralization promised, besides the threatened decrease in funds, superior facilities for a higher education. In the end it was this promise which over- came village pride and distrust, and swayed the vote, the separate school districts fused into one - Valley Cen- tral. Valley Central as a name for the new district was not easily arrived at. It demanded nearly as much deliber- ation as the decision to centralize in the first place. The villages had decided to join schools, but not hands, neither had they given up the pride they had tem- porarily set aside in their vote to cen- tralize. They hadn't destroyed the dis- trust. Now the three villages scruti- nized one-another's movements, guarding against the possibility of one village gaining an edge over the oth- ers. They had decided to coin the new district's name using letters from the village-names. The fight against cen- tralization over, the fight became, as Mrs. DiBello put it, "whether the 'Mont', 'May', or 'Wal' would come first. Would the name be Montwal- brook? or Maywalmont?" Then they had to choose school col- ors. They had to figure out how to blend orange and black with gold and black with red and white. In the end they decided to start from scratch and name their new district Valley Central and chose royal blue and white as the school colors. That way, nobody had an edge. Centralization introduced the com- munity's first mass-school bus trans- portation. Mr. Brokaw, who taught at Walden High School prior to central- ization said that "with a centrally lo- cated school, everyone walked. There was no need for buses." Today, buses transport from as far as fifteen miles away. Only a few students who live next door to the school walk. OPENING ESSAY 5 tRightJ The feeling of intimacy suffered as a result of centralization. At one time, more than fifty students crammed into one Chemistry section. Centralization... Students get lost In the crowd But centralization reached far deep- er than school colors and buses. As was promised, the educational facil- ities improved. In fact, improved so much that VC ranks as one of the top schools in the state. Mr. lorlano, a former student of Maybrook High School said, 'iAca- demic - thatls where centralization helped the most. A small school tsuch as Maybrook I-Iighj limited you in what courses you could take. And, too, a student had the same teacher for English, science, or math every year, grades 7 - 12f' Although it is invariably agreed that the educational facilities have im- proved, there is also a general fear that we may be too big, or, as Mr. Brokaw charged, "too impersonal." The forty to fifty students to one teacher ratio in chemistry class is a prime example. Mrs. DiBello, Mr. Ior- lano, and Mr. Brokaw generally agreed that the closer, one-to-one student - teacher relationship added something to education - something which tran- scends facilities. Still, one-to-one situations do re- main in small clubs and post session help. Deeper, even, than centralization's academic impact, was its social im- pact. Mr. Brokaw perceived a tension in the first students to occupy the new Valley Central building, and through- out the years, he has watched that tension gradually decrease into in- significance. "There was a lot of friction, those first few years, and by friction, I mean clique-ishness. Montgomery kids wanted to be with Montgomery kids, Walden kids with Walden, and so on." "And there was a rivalry which per- sisted for quite a while." Today the village-rivalry, the clique-ishness, is gone. Walden, Mont- gomery, and Maybrook high schools have melted into Valley Central. The friction has disappeared, and a new problem has taken its place. Today "you tend to get lost in the crowd," as Mr. lorlano put it. "ln a small school you know everyone. But here, students don't always know everyone else in their class. "But there may be an advantage to that. It prepares you because when you get out in the world, crowds are a part of real life." Centralization changed our commu- nity, but in the last score of years, the world has changed, too. And the changes have brought us almost full cycle from the place we stood in 1959. tRightl The girls tennis team swung their rackets all the way to win the section championship.

Somehow through his patient kindness and vibrant good- humor, he has made every student respect him. Mr. Brooks, who gives out nick- names and sayings like Santa does presents on Christmas Eve. Who calls daydreaming, Hwoolgatheringwg who assigns homework with the words, "You can cheat as long as you cheat fair," who shakes his head at mechan- ical errors and sighs, "Uh, to be young and in love." And always, if you ask him, he's twenty-seven. It might as well be true, for as Tim Smedes said. "He never seems to get older." Tim went on. "Hes a good teacher When I was sick for a week, he came to my house to help with math." Caryl VanSickle said, "He mode math. He made it fun, instead of just giving us all the boring stuff." And tlscftj Thirteen years of teaching at VC and approximately 1750 students later, Mr. Donald Brooks quietly grins while conjuring up yet another original nickname. then with a laugh, 'SHe always used to pick on me. He called me 'Winkie' because whenever I talked, he said I winked. But I didn't even know I did it." "You got things done in his class," Scott Pettine said. "He has a flair for teaching." Mr. Brooks, who is respected by his colleagues as well as his students. Mr. Kevin McFadden said of him, "He has that real, substantial goodness that is so important in a teacher. I-Ie has a love for his students ... " And also for his colleagues. Mr. McFadden continued to say, "Don heads the Sunshine Fund and whenever there is a death of a teacher or relative, he calls and offers his help, makes arrangements for flowers to be sent or for whatever else is necessary. He does the small things. But sometimes you wonder, if Don didn't do them, if anyone would." The 1979 LOG is humbly dedicated to this beloved teacher, Mr. Brooks, with gratitude for his nicknames, his sayings, his help with math, and for all the small things. For it is the small things that will be remembered. DBDICATION 9 Student life Students share emotions, experiences here are no typical studentsg no typical student's life. But there are some things - some emotions and ex- periences - that all students have in common, just from being students. The weekend parties, WABC's top ten, stereo systems, movies, final exams, school lunches, cars, the No. 2 lead pencil, and a blue-ink pen: the necessities of student life. Basically, these necessities haven't changed through the years. Always, parties and potato chips and cars have been the main-stay of students, exis- tenceg always, students have suffered through school lunches and finalsg al- ways, students have thrived on the radio and TV, but the songs and the programs have changed. Today a student might not have the straight reading, writing, arithmetic, social studies, and English course schedules. He might spend half his day at BOCES, half the day at VC, and his evening at a job, like Robin Hoff- man. "I go to AM BOCES for health as- sistance. I get home about 2:30 and then I eat dinner because I work at the A8zP from 4:00 to about 9:00. By the time I get home, I'm usually so tired that I just go to bed, and forget all about my homework." Like so many students have these past years, Robin is working to earn money for a car. That will never change. tAbovel The district extends over 125 square miles.

Chris Ross, loonne Hichichi, Wendy Godfrey, Larry Sutter, and Mike McComb created more "Moments to Remember." JllIll0l:S.Slllk opposition omecoming harbors a number of traditions: the bonfire, the game, the float competition between classes, and the dance. SGA announced "Eras" as the theme for the float competition. It chose Mr. Brooks, Mrs. Kennedy, Rev. Damon, and Mrs. Morrissey as judges. The floats were judged on a scale of one to ten - on imagination, creativi- ty, design, and authenticity. "It was really a tough decision. All the floats showed a lot of creativity," said Mrs. Kennedy. A Viking vessel, the Freshman float, with a theme of "Vikings sail to '82", received a score of rfinety-six points. "We had most of the frame up and then we had to tear it down. That left us only one and a half weeks to finish it. Sometimes we had only three people working on it and other times we had ten or fifteen," commented Drew Lounsbury. The Sophomore float, a Conestoga wagon drawn by two horses, pulled one hundred twenty-six points. Their theme was "Graduation, here we come." "Our float was a lot of fun. We worked hard and learned to cooper- ate. We learned a great deal more than that, though. We learned mainly how to deal with problems and how to solve them. "With Mr. DiL0renZo's help, we had the float finished and at school in plenty of time for the parade. All of the floats were really well done this year. And even though there were some sour feelings, we still had a good time,', said Chris Shipman and Mike Menendez. 12 HOMECOMING Lrg.. . I fi" W , .xx -t - -- - Y-4fsQmvQI5QMvwNahQKCN53F to ..

The Seniors chose the fifties as their era and "Moments to Remember - Class of '79" as their theme. In pig- tails, bobby-sox, leather jackets, and with slick-backed hair, they depicted the memorable caricatures of the times. "Working on the float was a lot of fun, We really enjoyed doing it. But we were disappointed when we didn't win," Sue Doucette and Wendy God- frey agreed. For the first time, the judges tied their decision and gave one hundred twenty-eight points to both the Senior and junior entries. A last minute, final decision broke the tie and the juniors were declared the winners. 14 HOMECOMING fAbovej Matt Damon t53j, Nick Stogliano gasp, and Todd Lawrence hold O'Neill back during the first quarter of the Homecoming game.

That self-same student emerged an hour later, scrubbed and dressed to trek to the bus stop. The crisp air banished the thought of sleep. "Getting up early to get the bus is really the pits. When I get dressed in the morning, I'm still asleep. I don't even know what I have on," said Ed- die McKelvey. The bus rumbled down the street. It loomed before the student. The doors whooshed open. "I wait about ten minutes for the bus in the morning. It is pretty crowded already and then we pick up even more kids," grumbled Billy Kline. Tripping up the steps, the student spied crowded seats, narrow aisles, and heard the piercing noise decibles. "The bus is super-crowded. Even with three in just about every seat, there are still kids standing from one end of the bus to the other," com- plained Billy Mirola. Positioning himself on the edge of a seat, the student prepared to engage in battle. "The bus I ride is really unique. On the way home, I ride the Middle School bus. Those kids are different. They hide under some of the seats. Others fight over the back seats," said Brenda Swithers. Spitballs, gum, and lunches whizzed past his ears. L'Once, during a fire drill on the bus, I didn't duck my head. I hit my head on the top of the emergency exit door," grimaced Sandy Wheeler. Music blared: from Donny Osmond to Ted Nugent. "If it werenit for the music on the bus, I would probably fall back to sleep," said Eddie McKelvey. "I like the music on the bus. It is pretty decent," added Billy Kline. "The music is so loud, you have to scream to talk to the person next to you," Bill Brooks griped. Voice hoarse from screaming, eyes red from smoke, slightly deaf from the noise level, and bearing the scars of battle, the student arrived at school. fRightj A throw-back to the 1950's, the souped- up car is reminiscent of Grease.

The lunch room tended to be a bar- rage of brown bags, Saran Wrap, milk cartons, and lunch trays - each with its own history and "personality," Hot school lunches range from the Viking Burger to Devil's Food Cake at Halloween, to Victory Salad during Homecoming. The names, however, haven't convinced many students to eat the lunches. ln fact, the lunches have fallen prey to the taunts of stu- dents, tastes. For some, the feelings about school lunches are hang-overs from the middle school. Donna Halter, who "brown bagged" it, said, 'tl ate fa school lunchj in junior high and got sick. I still don't trust the majority of school lunches." Glenn Marroon didn't feel as strong- ly about the middle school lunches, but when he was asked if the high school lunches were better he gave a definite, HYes!N Mike Iune ate two lunches - one hot, one cold.

Iack's father came up with a few of the lines Ioe and lack used. "Like the one, 'What are you doing with that noose around your neck? I don't know, just hanging around."

"Dressing in what is natural to the person is the fashion that appeals to me," David Phillips said. And that is what people did - dressed in what was natural to them. Color played the starring role in the fashions people chose. Clothes whis- pered a person's character, but color shouted his personality. Black shouted, HElegant!"

Chuck Chase employs a bandana in his imitation of the infamous "Cousin It." "The colors are prettier this year. Khaki just doesn't do much for any- one," Karen Kline said. The year's marketed fashions in- cluded the straight, slim, slitted skirt. The trends were geared toward leggy femininity, and people seemed quite receptive. Mr. Sam Tucker said, "I like to see girls in dresses that show their shapes - if you have it, flaunt it.!" Pants were shorter, narrower this year and were worn with their perfect accessory - the tall, skinny, coned shoe. But another of this year's fash- ions was merely a remake of the last ten years - people added jeans by Calvin Klein and Sassoon to their col- lections of Lees and Levis. Wayne Riley said, "It's nice to see girls in designer jeans. They're very neat looking, not like the typical, dull Lees and Levis."

'SI think the best thing about this year's fashions is hats. I like 'em on girls, and even on guys," Debbie Wollenberg said. For the sports people, this year's fads and fashions played a sequel to sweat suits and silk gym shorts. The sporty look was all-out bright, unex- pected combinations.

"lt was about their basic training during the summer and their plebe year - their emotional and physical hardships. It was detailed. It was good." It was also true. A great deal of the year's TV programming, however, wasn't meant to show the reality of situations, but to allow the viewers to escape from reality. Sandy Campana said, "I watch Hap- py Days, Three's Company, Mork and Mindy. They all have some humor in them. And with Eight ls Enough they put in more things about the family - but l guess it's not really realistic." Kerry Downer said, "None of the shows are really realistic." Paula Bastiano said that she didn't necessarily want realism. "You come to school all day and you work. Then you go home and work. You have to escape sometimes," she said. And for her, TV was an escape. Pat Stacey escaped into Saturday Night Live. He said, "It's fun - it's a release. lt takes you from the real world and you can lose yourself." Some shows weren't designed just 26 STUDENT LIFE as escapes, they had more to them. lane Weiss said, "Mork and Mindyis funny, but there's a serious side to it.

Before the bell rang and post-session you could find groups of people standing in the hall, joking at the grad table, or talk- ing with teachers in their rooms. Stu- dents gathered to consult on home- work, talk with friends from other towns, or just to relieve boredom. Yet one hangout stood out among the rest - the bandroom. The bandroom was an all day hang- out. Students could go there during study halls and practice their music in the privacy of a practice room or lis- ten to another's music. While some students were frequent visitors, some were dedicated to the bandroom and could be found there all day, every day. Steve Wilson, Bruce Williams, and Darryl Hey were three such people. Upon entering the room one was welcomed to "total mass confusion" as Bruce called it, and, where they were concerned, it was nothing short of that. One of their unique character- istics, besides playing upside-down in- struments, was their uniforms. Among doctors' coats, drivers, caps, and nineteenth century glasses, were the 'ttraditional band uniforms." All the uniforms were black, yet each one had a certain amount of ' -1' ,,.

"Well, the whole thing started when Steve and I did it one time just in the bandroom in front of Mr. Nash and a few other people," Bruce said. They seemed to like the idea so Bruce, Steve, and Darryl decided to try it out on first period band. "We set it up the night before so we were ready for band," Darryl said. Bruce commented on the students' responses: "Everyone knew about it. We turned all the seats facing one direction and put up no smoking signs," which emphasized their only rule for passengers - "Don't smoke unless youire on fire."

Shannon "Tex" Aaron said, "It was just something to get into. Itis a more universal sport - something I always wanted to do, more as a sport than as a toy." Shannon's younger brother Derrek just followed the crowd: "Everybody else was doin' it - in the streets, on sidewalks - so I decided to buy a board." Pat Stacey began skateboarding about ten years ago when he "sat on a big red fire truck and rolled down a hill. Then I bought a board." Skateboarding can bruise the begin- ner, but the devotees stick with it. Why? Perry Cefalu said he "just plain likes it.'l Pat Stacey does it "more as a 34 STUDENT LIFE hobby, more for fun."

Beginning the sport with four friends and "picking up ttechniquej from oth- er people," he is now into heavy com- petition. How universal is skateboarding? Well, "Tex" and Derrek are from Texas, Pat moved up from Puerto Rico, and George is from New York City. Each started skateboarding years ago, ignorant of each other. Each stuck with it.

There's the "thrill of victory, agony of defeat," and the tired, achingly happy feeling in the muscles after every game. That's why people play sports like soccer and practice until five o'clock every night, for that tired, achingly happy feeling in the muscles. The Girls' Varsity Soccer team didn't finish its season with the win- ning record it had hoped for, but its muscles did know the achingly happy feeling that was so worth the effort. In that sense, the players counted them- selves among the winners. They never counted themselves among the losers. As Valerie Upchurch, the team's captain said, "The team played well every game, but our record didn't show it." The girls' lost a majority of their games by one point. Unfortunately, that single point means the difference between victory and defeat. Of the girls, thirteen games, six ran into overtime. The team managed to win two of these games, and they tied a third and fourth. Miss Walters, the girls, coach, said that the overtime games are "frustrating to lose because everyone knows they have already played so well." Although the girls "started out slowlyfl as Miss Walters put it, "as the season progressed, they got better. "The second time around, we de- feated Washingtonville, who was battling for the top position in the league. We tied Newburgh, who was near the top, and also Warwick." fRightj The member of the Girls Varsity Soccer Team are: ffrontl Gigi Baty, Ieanne Bond, Kim Price, Iris Heller, Vickie Fitzpatrick, Barbara Vano, Diane Ioy, Beth Cunningham, fbackl Pam Toth, Linda Winchell, Kim Maselli, Desiree Diaz, Debbie Stickles, Valerie Upchurch, Gina Gesso, Iulie Boyd, Tracey Owens, Coach Lou Walters. 44 SPORTS Val said that the home game in which they tied Newburgh was, per- haps, their best game. S'Newburgh was our arch rival, and it felt good to tie them." But there's more to a team than the win-loss record. As in all teams, a special comradery grew up among the members of the varsity team. Valerie Upchurch said that when she looked back on the team, say forty years from now, that she'd probably remember the laughs. "Most of the girls on the team were a bunch of kidders. "We had Desiree Diaz, and if you have Desiree on any team, she's hi- larious."

SPGRTS 45 Girls practice to well together little incentive by Coach Cathy Rodriquez was all the Girls IV soccer team needed for a fine season. The girls knew that they would win and have fun at the same time. Coach Rodriquez believed in work- ing the girls to their fullest potential in practice. Many times you could walk by the girls' IV field and see one girl carrying the other on her back and sprinting towards the goal line. On the other occassions you could see them putting all their strength out just to finish their tiring wind sprints. Although the practices seemed hard, they didn't bother the girls.

And that is just what they had - a winning team. As Coach Rodriquez said, "I can't take all the credit because Mrs. Drutt- man did so well with the girls on modified soccer last year. Also many of the girls on the team are natural athletes so it makes it easier to work with them." From the side lines, you could see that the team members worked well with one another.

The girls instinctively knew that they could win if each team member did her part, and they oll did their parts. Dee Dee Cotten said, "We had a good team and season. I thought a couple of of the games were easy." Tracy Upchurch made a similar comment: "We had a good season. Some games were challenging, but a few weren't." The fact that most of the teams they played were not of high caliber, helped the girls through the season. But the girls liked playing strong teams because it gave them a chance to show the depth of their skills and their powerful offense and defense. Robin Kukla and Mary Luft both be- lieved that "it was our strong defense that shut out Cornwall." Chester and Highland Falls were the only teams that succeeded in over- powering the IV girls.

The grandstand, the write-ups, the con- cession stand, the play-by-play, the spectator buses, the cheerleaders, the crowds, and the recognition given to the players. Despite its anonymity, some devote hours of discipline to soccer. Why?

He attributed the modified program credit for bringing more athletes out for soccer, and also believed that "more kids are interested fin soccerj because it's not as physical as foot- ball." Quadrupla-captain Larry Sutter agrees. "I didn't relish the fact of get- ting knocked over by a guy three times the size of me," he joked. An- other captain, Mike McComb, chose soccer "because I wasn't old enough to join football in seventh grade. I stuck with it because in eighth grade I wasn't big enough to go out for foot- ball." Physical size, or lack of it, wasn't the only reason for which these ath- letes play soccer. Captain Eric Bartle commented, "I joined in seventh grade to get in shape for hoop. I liked it, so I kept goin'." jerry Ieltsch, a native of Belgium, inherited the desire to play from his country and family. The same could be said for leading team scorer Todd McCormick, who started ax - 'a....w'k i playing the sport in eighth grade "be- cause of my brother." Not everybody had a reason for de- voting months to the sport, however. john Zawistowski started playing "for the heck of it," while Pete Cocks re- marked, "C'mon, my father's Pele . . . " Season after season, soccer has sur- vived in the shadows of football. There are still no grandstands pouring cheers onto the field, but the players who have rejected the "football or nothing" concept for any one of a thousand reasons remain. Soon, how- ever, boys who chose to compete in soccer won't have to justify their ac- tions or give their reasons. junior Mike Megginson, may have taken a step in that direction when he pro- nounced, "I joined soccer because I'm a jock!" fLeftj In all countries except the U.S. football refers to what we call "soccer."

And pleased. With their de- termination, the girls were able to squeak by the stronger teams to win the division. With the division win behind them, came Terry Wegniak's and Ianet Sat- kowski's most important match of the season. The team was vying for the championship against Middletown. After six matches, both teams were tied. Terry and Ianet were the last doubles to complete their match, and both were conscious that theirs was the decider. When the match was completed, Terry and Ianet joined the winner's circle, and the VC tennis team won the championship. After three years, Coach Goldberg had the championship team she hoped for. Since many of the players will be returning for next year's season, she hopes to have one again . . . soon. When Mrs. Mary Goldberg first de- cided to coach Girls Varsity Tennis, she set a goal that she would have a championship team in three years. In her third year of coaching, with hard work and determination, Coach Gold- gerg led her team to the Orange Coun- ty Championship in the fall of 1978. The girls started their season in September hoping to have a good team. They had no delusions: they knew it would be a long, hard road to winning the title. Most of the girls were returning from last year's team. People like Ian VanWyck, her sister lean, Sue Engels, Terry Wegniak, and Ianet Satkowski were all expected to do well whether they played singles or doubles. As it turned out, Ian VanWyck finished sec- ond in the county and also had the chance to play in the sectionals. Terry Wegniak and doubles partner Ian Sat- kowski also competed in the section- als.

As the losses rolled up, the boys rolled on - took it in stride. How? Coach Coates introduced new drills designed to psyche them up. The players main- tained that Coates' innovations got them "sky high". The 5'Bongo Drill," "Monroe Drill," and the locker room chant were integral to good team mo- rale. Starting with the first game, Coach Coates' list of goals for the team shrank. But as each goal became unattainable, the team pointed itself towards another with every bit as much intensity. "We wanted to prove something by beating Cornwall, since that was the last game of the season," Dan Crowley said.

Ya! know - chalk another one up?" Cuard Doug Owen touched up the "feels good" cliche, stating that 'git gives me a sense of accomplishment - to be the best." Ierry Ieltsch liked the "togetherness" effect it had on the team: "We started to look for each other more." Being unbeatable looks even better than it sounds. Each time I asked a player how it felt, a smile flashed, a clutch basket raced from their memo- ries to their eyes, a comeback resur- faced, glory came out of hiding and shown.

Since the entire starting lineup for the varsity basketball team is seniors, the young, talented IV's will inherit the bulk of the pressure that comes when they step into the sneakers of the premiere team in the county. Vince Velasquez, the scrappy little reserve guard for the IV's this year said, 'SVVe'll be taking the burden, since everybody's leaving. Varisty is the big times, and we'll have to work if we want that title next yearf' Starting center Gerard Taedger said, "We,re in the big league now.

We got ex- perience in the IV league and al- though we might be jittery the first few games, I think we'll fit in well." Taking on the responsibility of de- fending the county championship is a "big task, even for experienced sen- iors."

Their unde- feated string was broken by Port Ier- vis in a game VC admittedly played poorly. After its loss, the team got back on track and ended its first round of play with five wins and one loss. Unfortunately, this turned to an even uglier side. The girls started to get on each other's nerves and weren't playing team ball. They lost two im- portant games which nulled their chances for the division title. Toward the end of the season, though, the girls pulled together and played good basketball.

Tracy Upchurch said, "We all had a good time and we all worked together to win our games. When we lost our games, nobody blamed one person for losing, and when we won it was a whole team effort." Most of the girls on the team thought that they began to slack off in the middle of the season. They felt they had to come from behind in some games. "We had our ups and downs, but we pulled it together at the end," Maria Sullivan said. Speaking along the same lines, Rob- in Kukla said, "We worked well to- gether most of the time, and we man- aged to win when we were downf' "lt was an exciting year for us.

This new situation was the presence of a new coach. Coach Bob Zifchuck started his first year at VC as a teacher and a coach. Since the coaching in any sport is important to the devel- opment of the team, what was Coach Zifchuck's impact upon the team members? Ray Estrada admitted that "in the beginning I didn't care for him too muchg I wanted to quitQ Some of the others wanted to quit right away, didnit give him a chance." He also mentioned that "he had a new practice routine, everything different, and lots of drills. Over the course of the year he got respect because he knows what he's doing, and he works hard to help us, staying after practice sometimes." When asked his personal opinion of the coach, Ray said, HI like him now, heis a good guy." Ray's remarks were echoed by his teammates. Chad Tompkins, a fresh- man wrestler, called Mr. Zifchuck Ha good coach. I like him, but l didn't at the beginning. Over the weeks of practice, I found that he's all rightf' Stan Handzel said that the "differ- ent practices were easier, duller. Over the year we got used to himg he's a good coach, a nice guy." Mark Hoyt wasn't amenable to the new coach at first, "I was one of the one's who was going to quitf, His attitude changed as he noticed that the coach was Hgood, knows his stuff. He's a great wrestler, worked hard with the team. He used to stay after and help me, sometimes. You know, he's hard to get used to, but he gained my respect."

Like making you do drags - pulling weights around - which builds up your muscles," re- marked Bob Sherman. But the track family wasn't just for in-school and on-track. It extended outside the school, too, to wherever track members were. "We would do things together, like travel," said Ran- dy Sutter. "Couple of times we went to Albany."

SPORTS 65 Clubs Math team adjusts to new advisor ust as an upcoming class brings new members with fresh ideas to VC's numerous clubs, changing advisors can also shed a new light on an old subject. With them, they bring novel approaches and untie ideas. In Sep- tember, 1978, our school saw students in search of clubs and clubs in search of advisors. Somehow they have found each other, and VC's extra-cur- ricular life flourishes. While some changes appear to have occured over night, in reality, the pro- cess was slow and tedious. Math Club's turn-over of advisors began two years ago as Mrs. Briggs assisted Mr. Shafer with after school sessions and meets. Although originally planned for last year, the end result did not occur until this year when Mrs. Briggs replaced Mr. Shafer. .Do adjustment problems exist? NI thinksof' replied Mr. Shafer. 'Well some of the kids I've worked I with two years. The first few weeks there were a few problems, but now things are working out because I'm staying out of itf' . Although she found no major prob- lems of adjustment, Mrs. Briggs did remark, "I feel Mr. Shafer had one advantage over me. He's teaching more of the material that's on Math Club questions and he has more of the members in his classes." Mrs. Briggs also pointed out that the members had an advantage over her. "I feel that since I haven't taken Math 11 and Math 12 in many, many moons, that some of the Math 12 students have more material fresh in their minds. The formulas come quicker." Did she have any doubts about tak- ing the position?

N as CLUBS ff iv ,E l Magazine sale helps fund Juniors , ass Its still a good way to raise money" lthough the freshman and soph- omore classes are limited in their fund-raising, the junior class has its magazine sale to raise money. Mrs. Lorraine Kittel, class advisor said, Hjuniors have used the magazine sale for at least twelve years, even before l became advisor." This sale was originally used to fund the Senior trip which has since been replaced by the Senior Dinner. Mrs. Kittel felt that this fund-raiser was the most efficient way to make money. Unlike some money-making schemes, Mthere are no losses." The Class of 1980 raised 84,831 this fall, clear profit. Mrs. Kittel was also pleased by the fact that "complaints fof the merchan- disej are always at a minimumf, In an effort to encourage more jun- iors to participate, the Class of 1980 offered prizes and a lowered cost of prom tickets as incentives for juniors to sell magazines. According to Mrs. Kittel, "ln order to make money, you have to spend money." The juniors set their goal at selling 312,000 worth of subscriptions, of which the class would receive forty percent, but they didn't make it. There was a great deal of speculation as to "why not," but it came down to the fact that there wasn't enough interest in Hsellingf' Not all juniors cared to help their class by selling magazines. When one junior was asked why he didn't sell them, he replied, i'VVhy should I?" Another problem was that people weren't interested in buying maga- zines. jeanne Bond said, "Magazines are too expensive. I don't think every junior class should have to sell maga- zines. There are other ways of raising moneyf' Bill Vandermark disagreed. He thought that selling the magazines was the most profitable way to raise mon- ey. He said, 'iPeople support us. Everybody will buy magazines 'cuz they know it's for the classf' Although the juniors didn't reach their goal, their vice-president, jim Fogg, didn't think that the class could've raised more money doing something else. He supported the magazine sale and said, 'ilt's still a good way to raise money."

CLUBS 69 Money crunch felt universally Sophomores face crisis head-on ivilization was built with mon- ey, and school clubs, like anything else, need it to survive. Unfortunately, though it's easy to realize that money is needed, it's hard to raise it. The Sophomore Class, like clubs throughout the school, faced the dol- lar-crisis head-on. It needed money for its sophomore activities, which in- cluded a Homecoming float and a so- cial, and a surplus which it could take with them into its junior year. Financially, the class had little to fall back on because of two car wash- es that were cancelled during the freshman year. lnvariably, when the money-ques- tion was brought up during a council meeting, someone like Chris Shipman quipped, "What money?,' But discussions werenit always that light - the council members realized how serious the problem was and tried to develop new ways to raise the money. Mr. Ioseph DiLorenzo, the class ad- visor, said, "The major problem is that communities in the area have been saturated with different non-profit or- ganizations going door-to-door trying to raise funds. This leaves the school organizations with very few alterna- tives for example, bake sales, can- dy sales, car washes, etc." Kyle Tucci, class president, said, 'iWe should be allowed to have a more liberal attitude when it comes to raising money. Bake sales are fun, but they don't get the job done." Many sophomores agreed with this. They felt that they should be allowed to use more 'igimmicksl' for fund-raising. Last year the sophomore class sold pins and necklaces, but this year that wasn't allowed. Robin Kukla, class treasurer, offered a solution for the problem. She said, "I think there should be less restric- tions put on fund-raising. We should work with the elementary schools. To- gether we could help each other very much." Each other - and themselves.

People shy away from using their talents because they're em- barassed, or they donlt want everyone to think they're showing off. Revelation, the schoo1's literary magazine, used an incentive to pro- mote Hshowing offl' - a five dollar prize for the best haiku, poem, or short story entered in Revelations "Literary Contest." Revelation's staff put posters in nearly every room in the school, and in most of the halls, advertising the contest. "Win five shuzzbuckslu Mrs. Ianet DiBello, Revelations's new advisor, hoped that "a senior doesnit win the first contest so that the lower grades would feel encouraged to try." She got her wish. Pat Stacey, a sophomore, won the first contest and the five dollar prize. Why did he enter? "I saw the poster and I said, 'Hey, great, I'Il enter.' I enjoy writing, and I had an idea for a storyf, His idea was the winning one. A group of Revelation members read through all entries, voted, and his was the most popular. Karen Kline, one of Revelations critics, said, "It's hard to choose which one is the best. All the stuff I've read was goodf, Dave Phillips didn't look at the con- test as giving people the chance but the incentive to write.

The stands were crowded with fans cheering their favorite society.

Svetlana jabari, president of FHS, said, "The main prupose of the joint activities is to have fun and gain good memories of the societies."

Table chosen over study hall Grads find relaxed environment cafeteria table stood in the lob- by of the school, and around it sat a group of students. The students were the members of Gradus Honoris, the National Honor Society, and the table was the honorary Grad Table. One of the grads' privileges was to not go to study hall. They could, if they Wanted, go to the library tpass- lessj or sit at the Grad Table. Most chose the table. Nick Stagliano chose to sit at the Grad Table "to escape the silence of a regular study hall. We have more free- dom at the table. lt's a more relaxed environment." Debbie Lefort said she sat at the table "because study hall is boringf' Tina Enright said, "I hate study hall and the library is too quiet," so she sat at the Grad Table, too. Apparently the people at the Grad Table are a garrulous lot because sev- eral of them mentioned that they espe- cially enjoyed the conversation, which is curtailed in study halls.

CLUBS 79 Learning goes beyond classroom Students sample Iife's culture earning is not, could never be, confined to a classroom and books. Students learn far more standing in the main stream of life than in the halls. The Enrichment Program was de- signed for learning - not through books - but through exposing stu- dents to life's culture. The program included wok-cooking, a lecture on the history of Orange County by Amy Bull Crist, and a Broadway play, The Crucifer of Blood. The play, a Sherlock Holmes mys- tery, won the most applause from the students in the Enrichment Program. Wayne Riley said he liked the play best "because I don't often get the chance to go to the city to see one, "That's why the program's worth it - because you get to see and hear things you might not get the chance to otherwise." Doree Fisher said, "I liked the play best. I really liked the special effects, QAbovej The Enrichment Program includes a variety of activities from lectures to Broadway plays. Speaker Mr. Bob Small discusses solar energy with Mr. Phillip Shafer. especially the lightning scene." Amy Bull Crist's lecture was also popular. Iohn Kunowski said, "She was funny. She talked about her an- cestors, and we sort of drew our own pictures of her family tree in our minds wondering how she des- cended from those people." Larry Sutter, who liked the play be- cause "it was exciting, suspenseful, and it got my blood up," said, "I also liked Amy - she was different." Not everyone puts culture first, however. Even in the Enrichment Pro- gram, Matt Damon put his stomach first. He said, 'AI liked the food. Last time the sausage was good, the eggs were not that good, and the rolls were good. The program is greatly en- hanced by culinary appreciation, and I think it's worth it. I-Iey, anytime they feed me it's worth it!" Food is still the common denomina- tor of all cultures. fRightj The members of the Photography Club are: ffrontj Bob Sherman, Bob Kreppin, Cbackj Brandon Ozman, Scott Williams, Tom Hurst, Brent DeGeorge. 80 CLUBS BX ily Qxxq X Q Taking .1 picture is lust a fraction of the work involved in photography.

K tg 5, I Q' When they dance, they disco isco is the newest dance craze, but some argue that it isn't just a craze. The way they look at it, if you want to dance, you disco. lay White, a Dance Club member, said, "Rock is just for listening to, disco's for dancing to. A few years ago it was soul, but today it's disco." Maureen Daly thinks "disco's a good way to have fun, and to meet people. You can sit and listen to rock, but you can't go out and meet people that way." Dance Club's trend this year was toward disco. They held a disco dance February 9 with a live DI. jay said, "The dance was all right, but the DI was really bad. He played music from three years ago" - rock, not the disco the club wanted. But even before disco, dancing was popular. Why? There were as many different reasons as there were Dance Club members. Michael McClearn said, "Really, dancing is a means of staying in shape, and it gives you a chance to show off your rhythm." Frieda Banks danced because "it's fun. And when you go out to dance, you can meet a lot of nice guys." Dancing is very social, and it is the social aspect that interested most people. Darnell McClearn said, "I'm into dancing 'cuz the music's good, and I meet a lot of people." Bill McClearn said he liked dancing because "it's something interesting to do in your spare time. You can let your feelings go on the dance floor. "And you can meet a lot of girls." Bill also said that his favorite dancing was "disco because of the rhythm. I can really get into disco on an album cover they even tell you how many beats per second." Maureen Daly said, "Now that a lot of disco's gotten cut, people are really getting into it." Most people got into it, and when they danced, they discoed. fAbovel The members of the Dance Club are: ffrontj Donna Robson, Denise Woolheater, Sandy Wheeler, jeanne Bond, Loretta Bodison, Iaime Suarez, Karen Kline.

Cheryl Domfort chose skiing. She associates the sport with a quote from a poster which once captured her at- tention: "Freedom lies in being BOLD." For the members of the Ski Club, skiing, is a BOLD sport. Mr. Gilbert Boyd, co-advisor of the club with Mr. joseph DiLorenzo, re- called a ski trip to Mt. Peter. "lt was bitter cold that night and we were caught in an ice storm, but the skiers weren't discouraged. As they skied, their clothes were covered with a lay- er of ice. They kept returning to the lodge to warm up, and as soon as their clothes thawed, they returned to the slopes." The BOLD skiers returned to the slopes. Mr. Boyd enjoys advising the Ski Club as much as the students enjoy skiing. He said, "Every trip has been a wonderful experience for the skiersg they have a good time and improve their techniques with each other's help." The members of the Ski Club enjoy skiing for a variety of reasons. The sport provides Nick Stagliano with "an outlet to release the anxieties of a hectic school day." Leslie Carmona said, "Many people complain because they have nothing to do during the winter. I ski." Dale Carmody likes to ski because it gives him "a feeling of freedom and the opportunity to meet new people." Patty Earl also enjoys meeting new people on the slopes. Patty thinks, be- sides the good looking ski patrolers, i'The best part of skiing is when l'm going down a hill really fast, lose con- trol, and wipe out." Another club member, julie Boyd said, "I like skiing because I can get together with friends and have a good time." Once while at Orange County Park, the T-bar had an operating difficulty and stopped temporarily. julie fell off the T-bar and could not get back on. This caused her friends and others near her to also fall. To julie, times like these are part of the fun of skiing. Svetlana jabari describes skiing as "a great feeling of flying very fast." Toni Lombardi has experienced the same feeling. The first time she went on a trip with the Ski Club, she did not know how to ski. Her first attempt down the slopes was successful, but when she got to the bottom, she couldn't stop. The Ski Club's first trip this year was to Holiday Mountain. It was also Mr. DiLorenzo's first ski trip. He had never skied before and decided to co- advise the club to learn. He hopes to someday become a BOLD skier. fBelowj The members of the Ski Club are: ffrontj Angelo Marotta, Robin jennings, Tammy Matthews.

Chuck Chace said, i'My most trivial fact is that in 1707 the Act of Union was passed by the British Parliament, uniting England and Scotland." Iimmy Fogg said that his most tri- vial fact is that Hthe corner by a fire place is an inglenookf' Sometimes people picked up trivia in an area they were especially inter- ested in. Mike Moran was into golf. His most trivial fact? "That Sam Sneed has won the most golf tourna- ment victories." Nick Palos read about sports and memorized the who, what, where, why, when, and how of every team and every game. He had a collection of most trivial sports facts, including nthe fact that Phil Esposito was the first player to win the NHL scoring title with at least 100 points. Also, that only one trade has ever taken place between the Mets and Yankees - R. Steiger for S. Ferrer." But some of Nick's favorite trivia had nothing to do with sports, like the fact that "Hercules had blue eyes." Steve Palos said his "most trivial" fact was that "the finger nail grows .1 millimeter a dayf, But how does one remember all these little facts? Mike Luft said, "I imagine theyire big factsfl And nourishment helped, too. Mike Moran said, 'Before a meet, I go to the bakery across the street and munch out to psyche up." Steve Palos said that he didnit do anything to get ready for a meet "ex- cept eat. Thatys it." Food is never trivial. CLUBS 87 Tino Miller and Tracey Owens share the chore of filing schedules.

Terry Wegniak said, "The secretaries are all very nice. The closest one I've gotten to know is Mrs. Schoonmaker - Aunt Stellf' With the closeness between the stu- dents and the secretaries came bun- ches of private jokes. Patty Earl said, "We have this one joke about my fire proof box - they are all engrossed with it.

We were all laughing, and then Mr. Haggar walked in unexpec- tedly, and we didn't know what to do. But after a minute, we all broke out laughing." However, the students in Service Club didn't spend all their time laugh- ing. They worked, too.

High schools and colleges demanded 6'relevant" courses, courses which opened the times to the stu- dents, which challenged the mind. Unfortunately, in challenging the mind, the courses neglected the basics. Nationally, these past few years have brought a "back to the basics" movement in education. Some schools have a long way back, but VC doesn't. As a conservative, academic high school, VC never de-emphasized the importance of basic skills. Today, while the national grade-point-average for the PSAT's is dropping, VC's aver- age is climbing. Mr. McFadden, English Department Chairman, said this about the nation's trend "back to the basics": "All of a sudden people realized, through arti- cles in Newsweek and Time like 'Why can't Iohnny read?', that some stu- dents were actually illiterate. They have spent their time pulling thoughts out of the air, like 'Why is man good?', but they couldn't read. They didn't know the basics." Although VC never strayed far from the basics, we initiated a basic skills test in 1974 to make sure that every- one graduating had at least elemen- tary verbal skills. The state came out with such a test a year later.

Martian voices Don Muro demonstrates a synthetic in auditorium mericans thrive on entertain- ment: they have it broadcast over their living room TV sets and through the ear-phones of their bedroom ster- eo systems. They even have it, occa- sionally, brought into their schools. BOCES and the Regional Festival of the Arts presented Mr. Don Muro at a November assembly. Mr. Muro - syn- thesizer specialist, composer, talented musician - demonstrated what a syn- thesizer can do, and how to make it do it. He interspersed his demonstra- tions with his own original com- positions, which he played to the accompaniment of a slide projector and screen. Mr. Muro demonstrated a synthetic technique popular with modern com- posers - mixing. "Mixing,' he ex- plained, "consists of playing a certain line of music, recording it, and while playing it back, playing another line of music with the initial line and re- recording it as a whole." When played back the two lines ftwo separate me- lodiesj are heard simultaneously. Mr. Muro demonstrated this by mix- ing five lines of Iohann Sebastian Bach's "The Art of the Fuguef' The mixing technique, coupled with the synthesizer, has virtually revolu- tionized the music world. Groups like "Pink Floyd," "Led Zeppelin," "Frank Zappa," "Electric Light Orchestra," 'SYes," and many others employ the synthesizer with this technique full- time and have helped the synthesizer gain its present popularity. Mixing and the synthesizer also help small groups like "Rush" and "Emerson, Lake, and Palmer" to pro- duce full sounding recordings and give concerts that are as well-in- strumented as those given by groups with many more members. Because of a late start and a few problems with his slides' being out of sync with his music, Don Muro's pro- gram was cut short. However, he still found time for audience participation. He invited anyone in the audience who played the piano to come on stage and try his hand on the synthesi- zer's keyboard. Owen Scott volunteered. He said, 'SWell, I was inspired and sitting in the second rowg it was a quick jump to the stage." Mr. Muro asked Owen to play "Mary Had a Little Lamb," and then hummed a few bars when Owen ad- mitted he didn't know how. When Owen finally got it right, Mr. Muro directed him to a small lever on the upper part of the synthesizer. The sound produced was notably profes- sional. With a synthesizer, anyone can sound professional, and many of the complex sounds fsoaring, rumbling, thunder, windj heard on albums and TV take no amount of genius - only a synthesizer. Mr. Muro said, "A syn- thesizer actually synthesizes or makes sound. Nearly any sound found in na- ture can be reproduced on a synthesi- zer." Mr. Muro then handed Owen the microphone and instructed him to say the "Pledge of Allegiance." Using the synthesizer, Mr. Muro altered Owen's voice until it sounded "like a Mar- fRightj The new concept in productions is to co- ordinate the audio with the visual for a total effect.

For his help, Mr. Muro presented Owen with his new album, "It's Time," on which he performs all the vocals and instrumentation - he and his synthesizer. Owen said, "Mr. Muro is an espe- cially talented composer. His keyboard work reminds me of Ian Kammer's, a keyboard player who cut an album with Ieff Beck and has played locally." After his brief stop at VC, Don Muro and his synthesizer continued their tour to other area high schools, to change other volunteers' voices into Martian's voices.

Since the act of Ulearningl' is essentially up to the individual, one of the few things schools can do to pro- mote better learning is to group stu- dents according to their abilities. VC is one of the twenty percent of the nation's high schools that offer AP fAdvanced Placementj courses. The AP program is intended, not only as "an excellent opportunity for the more outstanding students to work up to their abilitiesf' as Mr. Shafer said, 2' --...., Y .L ' but to allow them to earn college credit for their work. Some students, instead of empha- sizing earning college credit for AP courses, emphasize the benefit from just taking college-level courses and sampling the work-load. lane Weiss said, "I think it prepares you a little more for college." Tina Enright thought that AP courses were worthwhile "because you get an idea of what college courses are like." This year a fourth AP course - So- cial Studies - was added to VC's Eng- lish, math, and biology APls. Ieff Hag- gar thought the AP program was definitely worthwhile, but wished "the school offered a wider variety, like physics and chemistry NFA has around ten." Dave Hanson, like Ieff, wished "more science AP courses were offered." An AP test in each course is given at the end of the year to capable stu- dents willing to pay thirty-two dollars. lf the student gets a score of three to five points, he is eligible for college credit. Iackie Besser, who enrolled in AP biology, English, and social studies, said, UI think the courses are worth it if youlre going to take the AP test at the end of the year. If you don't take the test, it's a waste of time because you really don't get anything out of it except a lot of hard work." fAboveJ "lt's Monday!"

Although the choir and the chorus didn't plan a musical production this year, they worked hard on their spring and winter concerts. Iill Lounsbury said, "The music is basically difficult, but I don't mind . . . I like it." Along with the pieces they perform, A Cappella also worked on choral mu- sic. This year the choral pieces were basically "show music" selected from previous VC productions. The music was from productions such as: Porgy and Bess, An Account of Ourselves, and Oklahoma.

And then she said seriously, "I started the club because I feel that gymnastics is a major facet of Physical Education that has been missing from VC."

Mary Luft said, "I learned new things and improved my technique."

But sometimes, the most meaningful part of these events, is the prepara- tiong preparation which allows one to give to the event even more than he takes. The Senior-Faculty Tea is a long- standing tradition at VC: a once-in- a-lifetime event. Although the Tea itself is rarely over an hour and a half long, the preparations begin weeks before. And long after they forget the names of all the teachers there, the seniors involved in the preparations will remember Knot how much work they didl, but the satisfaction they felt in having done any at all. The students hussled to the Council meeting to discuss plans for the Senior-Faculty Tea: the per- suasive Mr. Iohn Calvey presided over the meetingg raised hands vol- unteered seniors' time and services to help the officers prepare for the Tea. Here it all began. A small group of girls wrote in- vitations to the special guests while the food-lists fcakes, cookies, tea sandwichesj were dittoed off.

It's nice to work with these people," said Pam Snyder. A few days before the Tea, the officers collected the lists. Over eighty students' signatures prom- ised home-made foods. The day before the Tea, seniors cheerfully mixed pleasure with work. They spelled out "w-e-l-c-o- m-e" with imitation leaves on the glass windows looking out into the courtyard, and dressed the lobby in fa1l's browns and golds. When they were finished with the decorations, they all said to themselves, with Barb Reynolds, "I think the Tea will be a successfl The day of the Tea and heavier workloads arrived simultaneously. The last minute details could no longer be "put off until tomorrow." They had to be dealt with in the few hours which remained. The seniors swarmed into the home-ec room, crowding the tables with trays and desserts. Those who could, helped arrange the food at- tractively on the trays and special dishes. With all the freshly baked foods, it did, as Iane Hubbard said, "Smell like a bakery." Two hours before the Tea saw the seniors setting up the silver laminated tables from the cafeteria.

Whereas before they looked upon working as an improbable prospect, many find both enjoyment and sat- isfaction in working. They went from just 'idoing something" to really enveloping themselves in their jobs. Naturally, some individ- uals still barely tolerate their jobs, but their number has been gradu- ally lessening.

For many, the satisfaction of seeing a weekly paycheck is bound- less. Glenn Campoli, who works at Woolworth's in the Orange Plaza said, "Seeing that l'm actually mak- ing money from something that I enjoy doing is great. It makes you feel really important." But having a job has its pitfalls, too. Working students pass up many activities and a great deal of fun and it can really hurt at times. An example of this can be found in this year's Senior play, when a number of cast members faced los- ing their parts due to their jobs. One must somehow juggle his schedule and decide on his prior- ities. It's rough. Some lucky people really enjoy their work. Rich Sager is one of these people. He is a violinist in a band which appears at the Fast Lane in Middletown.

These people bring their own talents to a play, blend them together, and create a finished prod- uct which reflects, in part, their own individuality. This is why plays and drama have survived: Broadway plays and Senior plays. Seniors hummed 'Tm a Yankee Doodle Dandy H as the date of their play, The Yankee Doodle, ap- proached. They pasted up posters and Ioe Korpics and lack Goldstein spent two weeks inventing an- nouncements to catch kids' atten- tion. The Senior Class awarded monetary prises to people who sold fifty tickets, and underclassmen sneaked into the auditorium during post-session rehearsals. And there were plenty of rehears- als to sneak into. The desire for perfection never ceases to appre- hend its victims and the seniors spent long nights trying to attain it. After everyone arrived for at least after the characters necessary for the pending scene had arrivedj Mr. Iames Lignori, director, signalled for the rehearsal to begin. "Every- one quiet, please. There's no time to spare," he shouted. The auditorium, usually silent and dark, came alive with the re- hearsals. But the play's cast didn't manage this miracle on its own: the stage crew faithfully attended every practice. They had much to do. Paint to buy, scenes to sketch, flats to repaint.

Michael, who played Duke Norton, and Ann Whitney, who played Mary Hurley, were the "stars" of the play. Although the cast never forgot the seriousness of rehearsals, they also never forgot that comic relief can be the main-stay of relaxed concentration. During one rehears- al, a few attentive actors noted, "Your flap's open, Ioe!" as his scene ended. Everyone laughed up- roariously. November 18 arrived with the ex- pectation of opening night. The cast's stoic nerves withered. Make- up was crucial, lines were crucial now that it would be performed in front of an audience. Behind stage the kids huddled to- gether. The curtain opened. The actors emerged from behind stage on cue, and after the split- second hesitation in which they feared they had forgotten all their lines, the words and motions which they had practiced and made their own during rehearsals flowed freely. And soon, too soon, it was all over. The entire cast gathered on stage for the finale. The audience applaudedg the actors bowed: the curtains closedg and after a few minutes of commotion, the audito- rium was silent with emptiness.

Other than involvement in athletics and school clubs, many seniors have sought in- volvement in many community or- ganizations outside of school as well. A large group of seniors refused to sit back and "let George do it" so they, themselves became involved. The training received now, in our youth, is needed to help prepare us to take our part in civic affairs when we get older.

R The seniors, at the opening of the new school year, fought for a tradi- tion which they felt had no need of change. Mr. Frank Wallner and the Log's editorial board decided that the girls' senior portraits taken with the drapes would not appear in the yearbook. Instead, the pictures of the girls in their personal dress clothes would be used. The senior class responded to this news with an unexpected uproar. They circu- lated petitions, scheduled a sit-in in the lobby, and arranged meetings between the officers of the senior class council, Mr. Haggar, and Mr. Wallner. The senior class wanted, as Iohn Zawistowski said, the portraits put in the yearbook with "the drapes on the girls and the suits on the guys." More than just wanting it, though, they were willing to fight for it. During one post-session, Harley Lawrence, Ianet Satkowski, and lane Weiss, members of the senior council, met with Mr. Wallner to discuss the i'why's and why-not's,, of having the drapes in the year- book. The biggest 'iwhy' was that the drapes were traditional. Mary des- Granges said, "The drapes are a tradition, and I think it's important to continue traditions." Many other seniors felt the same way. The Log was surprised to dis- cover nearly as much support for the drapes among the guys as the girls. Mike Siwy said, "The drapes have been used for a long time, and I see no reason to change now." Wayne Riley admitted that he "wouldn't consider the senior por- traits complete without the drapes and suits."

I express their own individuality." The drapes are definitely "uniform in appearance - they reveal noth- ing about the wearer's personality, about who she is." Harley Lawrence challenged the Log's concept of individuality. She said, "Some believe that uniformity is a lack of identity, but I think that is better ia appearance. Your identi- ty is your character, not your dress, although that does play a small part. HBesides, no one person is the same, not even in a drape." The seniors fought for tradition and they won - by a fluke. Mr. Wallner said, "One of the gua- rentees I had made to the class was that they would not have to pay extra if they wanted to portrait with the drape personal use. But I was they would have had to choose a for their wrong - pay four dollars extra." So the drapes remained. fLeftj Food processing at BOCES, involves not only cooking, but cleaning.

To many, the war was a distant thing which touched their lives only when their hands touched the morning pa- per. The news media told the war's story to millions of Americans, and, when the war ended, and the story ended, the people promptly forgot about Vietnam. Some people, however, have not forgotten. Families of American citi- zens who are missing in Vietnam, and the friends of these families, still feel the vast desolation the war caused. Andrea and Lisa Free are two such people. Along with the rest of their family, they are members of the Na- tional Human Rights Committee of Walden. lr'I'41rnl' llnonx- Tzimrnxi' llruzz- lnhn CI.llx'A'rt Cmnt lloyd Ann Brisfgvr Louis flapozznli Rnyninntl llnyvr ldll'X0l1 llroln Donn.: Clappnrllo lvlarnf llmrzh Eugene llruwn lmsliu Llarmmiu Ginger llrztnl Iohn Brown Mir:harilCn1'i1l1m The National Human Rights Com- mittee was co-founded by George Brooks, a man whose son has been missing for ten years. It is an organi- zation for veterans and all interested citizens who are fighting to return the MlA's and POW's: who are fighting to return the men who once fought for us. Hlt's really dumb. There's over 2000 American citizens missing, not all sol- diers, and no one's looking for them," Andrea said, summing up the feelings of the organization. The group demonstrates its feelings by holding rallies in New York and Washington.

"We marched through Washington to Lafayette Park. We held a demon- stration in front of the White House and held up a long strip of paper with the name of every POW or MIA writ- ten on it.'i Does the group get results? "They wouldn't even talk to us," Andrea con- tinued. But the sisters feel that 'fthe only way to accomplish anything is to have the public interested." If not interested, at least the public was forced to remember the men who fought in Vietnam, and did not return. The march was broadcast on several different news programs and posted in papers across the country. For many, any consideration of Vietnam ended with the war. But some people still remember. 5 it 'A v gt: ff U 'hai S-J Aiirlrnui tlullvn D-lflllfl fll'f1Wl1'5 km in Dux is' Lmllg C0111-11 l'lllZdlJI!lll flunninglimn lll'llml.iD.n1s Mlt,li.lvllImgt'l1 l1gf1Dl'Xni-mi llnllylJ.1x'xs 515,111 fjmmu-1-ll Il'lkl'l'I'y llrunlnl I' l3on.iltl Dvrikvr Donald Crosby ll-irl D.irrigo Susan IJ:-ckz-r IUNIORS 143 ' Q Kim Dgyfryggrgy llhrisloplivr llivczkman Shvryl Domforl Ronald Edsall Iohn Estrada Scott Fishzfr lnaneilu Ihfflmprgrr Lisa Diehl liuguno Doolittle Diana Eignor Michal Farmingham William FilZL.ll3I'illll lohn Dulrtsus Anthony DiI.or1-nm Rirzharrl Draiss Susan Engels Darlene Ferguson Villlflriil Filwillfilik Dosirm: Diaz Mi1ry'U0lly Thomas Eckert Iohn Esposito Michael Fernandez Iames Fogg 144 IUNIORS ...XA jane Fowler Ralph Franco Gary Freclrrll Andrea Frou Susan Frerlrrll Davicl Furman Irtffruy Furman Pamela Fuin Lisa Gallo Vicki Gear Herbert Geiger Rohert Gingras tLeftj Animal House was the fall movie-going rage, Don Crosby performs his version of a Belushi food fight. ii x School sports build friendships Kristan Green leffrey llall lane llart Danutte Gresham Wayne Hallock Gary llasbrouck lonathan Groom Stanley Hanmlzel Kathleen Hayes Rory lflacltlen Gary Harris Eleanor Hedin Ionathan Hugger lill Harrison Iris Heller Running draws four girls close tlseftj Cheerleaders cheer for their favorite team.

Noth- ing seems quite as graceful as a ball- erina, and Tracy Kemble is just that - a ballerina on ice. She has been skat- ing competitively for four and a half years. "As a kid I used to skate and I enjoyed it so I started taking lessonsf' Tracy summed up the source of at- traction to the rink. Tracy's skating abilities are wide. "I do free style and figure skatingg some dance." She competes as an amateur and among her titles is the New jersey State Novice Ladies Bronze Medalist. Although she does well in them, competitions are not really a favorite with Tracy. "I love doing demonstra- tion ice shows. They're fun because you're not competing. You don't have to worry about the next guy." The beauty of skating, however, may only be achieved through many hours of hard work. Tracy practices five days a week at an indoor rink in Westchester. To reach the perfection of the art takes a great deal of pa- tience and determination. Tracy feels wif you donit fall down, youlre not working. It takes alot of bumpsf' Tracy's love for the art also adds to the results she achieves. After a leg injury, she was taken off the rink for six months. Her leg has healed now and it does not affect her skating, but she remembers the days she could not go to the rink, "It gets to you after awhile 'cause you miss it. I can't watch another skater if I can't be on the ice."

The media has made karate into a "fighting art," and although it is that, it's more than that, too. Marlena said, "Karate,s not all acting tough and sparring. It's a lot of dedication. "I never looked at it from the point of view of 'protectionf either. I guess the achievement and perfection are what I want out of it." Besides learning the physical moves, Marlena had to learn the Mmental moves." She started off her practices by meditation, and the mental dis- cipline she has learned has helped her outside of her karate lessons. Marlena said, "Meditating has helped me con- trol my temper." Marlena set aside two hours every day to practice. She worked with knives and bamboo as a defense against rods and can break two-inch boards. "A lot of it," she said, "de- pends on co-ordination and balance." Marlena's co-ordination and balance are improving, and Marlena is achiev- ing what she wants out of it - per- fection.

Starting high school: it's sort of like starting sixth grade in the middle school, only the high school is bigger. People grow up quite a bit from freshman to senior. When one's a sen- ior, he's not a kid anymore, while a freshman harbors at least a little "childishness" deep inside. Admittedly, it's a long way from the middle school to the high school. There are changes to be made - some minor, and some not so minor. Brian Burger felt that "getting used to getting up earlier" was the biggest tLeftl Before centralization, students had to bring a bag lunch.

He said that he likes high school better than the middle school because, "the teach- ers don't get on you as much. They're stricter over there. I guess itis pretty much the same otherwise." Bryan Butka agreed with his friend. "They treat you more like an adult." But Bryan had to make a more difficult adjustment than Brian Burger. "The first day it was hard. I'd ex- pected it to be really different, and it was. It was confusing, different rules and everything." Although Bryan found the rules confusing, Ed McKelvey thought they were "sort of stupid. You can't go to your locker. That's stupid." Ed also complains about the stu- dents who had, in the previous year, come to the middle school to give his eighth grade class "freshman ori- entationf' I-Ie said, i'The way they sounded, it was really hard. They made it sound like it would be hard to get along, but it isn't." Billy Kline said, "It's the same as the middle school." Ioe Iardan agreed with the other boys, accepting their slightly varied opinions without comment. But he did mention one point the others left out: "You get out of school earlier."

VC's vice-principal, Mr. Ioseph DiBello, was raised in Middle- town and as a youngster worked as a farm laborer in the black dirt country of Pine Island. The Dibello's own approximately nineteen acres of land in the Mont- gomery area and put some of it to good use in their summer's business venture. Their garden had two sepa- rate vegetable sections. In their "crop garden" the DiBello's planted to- matoes and cucumbers while they planted a variety of vegetables in their "kitchen gardenf' These they later preserved by freezing or canning.

Mr. DiBello said that he received information on the best varieties of vegetables to grow in specific soil con- ditions from the County Extension Bu- reau and Cornell University. He also talked to area farmers for advice on marketing his produce. The DiBello's sold most of their goods at a wholesale auction market in Milton. They felt going to the mar- kets in New York City was impractical "because of the time, distance, and commission rates involved." Mr. Di- Bello travelled to Milton four days each week at the height of the sum- mer season, but under the auction sys- tem, he didn't have to stay until his goods were sold. He received a receipt, the auctioneer accepted the highest bid, took a fifteen percent commission and gave the rest to the DiBello's. Mr. DiBello said the price depended on the goods. "You establish a reputa- tion - good or bad." Prices are also influenced by the season and the num- ber of comparable goods available. The labor for this venture was sup- plied by family hands. In Mr. Di- Bello's words, HWe didn't hire anyone. We used child labor." Mr. and Mrs. DiBello's four children and in-laws helped.

Those people unfamiliar with the Indian lifestyle are apt to make state- ments such as, "Look, they don't have a nice house .. . that hogan is made of mud." Mr. Romme explains the reason for mud hogans is that the Navajos are nomadic, constantly traveling with their sheep. "There is no permanent house for the Navajo, but this is what the Na- vajo wants. He doesn't feel unfortu- nate," Mr. Romme said. S'They're in harmony with their environment." Not only do people place their own values on the Indians, but they ster- eotype his image. just as white men differ, and blacks, so do Indians. For instance, no Navajo owns anything personally. The Navajo Indians share as a tribe. "But the Pueblo Indians," says Mr. Romme, "are just as material- istic as the white man.

Hav- ing visited a reservation school, Mr. Romme says, "Facilities compare well to what we've got here at Valley Cen- tralf' Since the recent trend toward edu- cation, the Indians have difficulty keeping the young people on the res- ervation. The majority of young people who go to college do not re- turn. The Indians that .do return after college, return as dedicated teachers or doctors. Contrary to what most believe, Mr. Romme claims that Indians are not discriminated against. Many Indians have gone into politics and are leading citizens in the community. Mr. Romme said that Indians "are not de- nied opportunities, if they have the ambition to get their education. There is very little stigma attached to being an Indian." I Besides being influenced by their culture, Mr. Romme enjoys the In- dian's company. "Indians are fascinat- ing people.

This was true in the 50's, and it's true today. Business -- oligopolies and local businesses - help money change from hand to hand. Mr. john Spano of Iohn's Ltd. in Walden, said, "The taste of the people changes, but the busi- ness is the same. You have to pay for what you get." However, people are paying to get different things than they did twenty years ago. Today jeans are a standard, necessary part of any clothing store's inventory. john Spano said, "Twenty modern world years ago there were no jeans to be sold, except to farmers and to other workers. jeans were just work pants in those days. But jeans have come to be accepted as a common dress item. "Twenty years ago it wasn't profitable to stock jeans, but today it is profitable." And today john's Ltd. sells jeans. Mr. Spano said, 't'We had to change with the time. The styles changed, and we had to change to give the people what they wanted. Today we sell more sports clothes, as opposed to dress-clothes.

At least, the space West- erns are - Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica. Mr, Kevin McFadden thought that, in general, todayis books and movies have plots similar to yesterday's books and movies falthough their presenta- tions differl. He asked, "How many plots are there in the world? There's good guys against bad guys, boy gets girl, and the triangle plots ftwo girls in love with one guy, two guys in love with one girll. "It's the same with the Westerns. They only transferred the action from some ranch in Arizona to a planet in space. The plotls the same." The plot of day to day life hasn't changed much these past twenty years, either. Crown-ups still go to Work, and kids still go to school. But some of the things grown-ups and kids take with them have changed. For instance, a score of years ago the U.S. harbored barely a score of calculators. Today, everyone has one. Chemistry and physics classes are full of students and teachers and their cal- culators. Miss Arline Schnee, who went to school in the 60's, said, "We didn't have calculators. Any calculations we had to do we did with a pencil and paper. "Now calculators are approved for school use by the state. "And not only students use them.

Ms. Marion Underhill said, "Alco- holism, and smoking has increased, and that, of course affects the kind of student you have to teach. He is much more outspoken." Twenty years ago drugs and alcohol played a small role tif anyj in people's lives. But today drinking and even smoking pot have become socially ac- ceptable in many circles. High Gear, a shop at the Orange Plaza, displays and sells bangs and cigarettes. But when speaking of changes, Ms. Underhill said that really Uthe things that are different are superficial things." Mr. McFadden agreed, "People are the same. I don't think they ever change. Only the external things change."
