fAboveJ With the fusing of schools also came
the fusing of budgets. This allows such extras as
the brightly colored uniforms of the Valley
Central track team.
Centralization I -
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
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
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-
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-
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
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.

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-
Still, one-to-one situations do re-
main in small clubs and post session
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-
"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.

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

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.
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-
"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."

Tony-award winning star of
Broadway's On the Twentieth Cen-
tury, Kevin Kline, once said, "Clothes
are costumes. When you play your-
self, you come off best." There was a
new surge of freedom this year for
individuals to wear what they liked to
wear: for individuals to play them-
"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

The year's marketed fashions in-

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."

ntertainment in '79 was reading
a book when you didn't have to,
watching TV when your favorite show

TV GUIDE advertised the week's

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-

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

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

"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.

bought a decent one. I've been into it

Shannon "Tex" Aaron said, "It was

he loneliness of a long-distance
runner. Each step carries him closer to
his goal, but each step is also harder
than the last. What thoughts filter
through the minds of these athletes as
they compete for three miles?
Debby Lefort, who likes running so
much, says she concentrates on finish-
ing. "l feel like I'm hurtin'. I wanta get
done." Captain Chris Ross takes it a
bit further by thinking "how l'm gon-
na' finish in the end."
Others don't wonder about the busi-
ness at hand, but rather of pleas-
antries and good-times. "Whatever
music they play on the bus," asserted
Steve "Commadore" Nelson, "it just
goes through my head." Yvette Beck
thinks "of when l'm finished - on the
bus goin' home," while, as he's run-
ning, Shannon Aaron evaluates his
peers. t'Why are all these fools out
here? And why am I out here? Every-
body is hurtin'."
Vinny Velasquez keeps perhaps the
most casual thoughts as he runs: 'il
don't think about anything."
Each member of every cross-coun-
try team strives for a common goal -
victory. And each also attempts to at-
tain that goal by putting-out his best.
It's the private thoughts accom-
panying those athletes, however,
which keep them separate in their
quest for victory.

"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.

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

Rodriquez was all the Girls IV soccer

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.

they didn't bother the girls. They

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-

she set a goal that she would have a

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.

team. They had no delusions: they
knew it would be a long, hard road to
winning the title.

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. This team didn't get a taste of
being unbeatable. It grabbed it, wres-
tled with it, held it, and loved it.
Sounds "great',, huh?

Varsity team is just
a step away
arsity basketball means many
different things to many different
people, but for the IV basketball
squad it means only one thing - re-
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. It will
be a whole new experiencef'
Lanky Iim Ottowitz backed Ierry up
at the pivot. He put his feelings about
the step up a different way. f'We,re
going to be a young team and we'll
have to gain experience fast. VVe'll
have to work harder, learn faster. and
Starting forward Mike Mondello
had a more optimistic view on the fate
of the IV squad. i'The step up to var-
sity won't be too hard. 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." But the talented members of the
IV team are determined they will do
it, and are taking on full steam.

team did really good."
Debbie Stickles said, "lt was an ex-
perience l'll never forget."
An unforgettable experience - that
it was. The girls started out strong and
went undefeated for three straight
games, but then it seemed as though
the rock turned over. Their unde-
feated string was broken by Port Ier-
vis in a game VC admittedly played
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. Iean Van-

attitudes changed, not only towards
basketball, but towards each other."

Team learns to work together
he girls' IV athletic programs
have given younger girls the opportu-
nity to develop their playing power. ln
the few years since the program has
started, many of these teams have
won, not only experience, but laurels.
The girls' IV Basketball Team, un-
der Coach Cathy Rodriquez, won a
few laurels themselves.
All of the girls believed that if they
used their abilities, they would have
the potential to win. 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
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. We
pulled ourselves out of our slump to
have a good yearf' Iulie Boyd said.
But laurels came with the ups and
downs. Many of the girls enjoyed
playing on the team as much as they
enjoyed the sport.
Linda Goldstein said, Hlt was a good
experience. I liked it and it was nice.
We had a good season."
"lt was okay, and we had fun," said
Dee Dee Cotten. A little comedy al-
ways comes with hard work, and Kim

Wrestlers accept new coach
he Varsity Wrestling Team had
to make a change, a rather large
change, to adapt to a new situation.
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
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

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
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? "No,t' she said, "be-

bilities. lt's part of your job.f'

helps fund Juniors
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,
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
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
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."

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
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
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
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

But his yearls 180 days: 259,200 min-
utesg and 15,552,000 seconds were
filled with memories precious to only
the one person experiencing them,
too. Memories no one else could
share. Sammy Bellarosa, the photog-
rapher said, "l'll remember Mr. Wall-
ner yelling at me."
Then, more seriously, he said,
"Everything I did this year was so
different than last year. l had to go
out in the community to take pictures,
and l got to know different people in
the school, and what they did outside
of it. That's what lill remember."
Billy Vandermark said, "I'll remem-
ber the trip to New York best. And
how crazy we could be at Wallneris -
raiding his icebox and munching out."
Scott Rabiet, graphic editor, said
he'd remember eating the most.

Activities enhance spirit
lubs, organizations, and so-
cieties throughout the school exhibit
more of the competetive than coopera-
tive nature. Most try to make money
and sponsor activities on their own.
FHS and SHS are the exceptions. Al-
though they do work separately, they
also work together.
The annual FHS-SHS volleyball
game took place in the gym on Friday
evening, October 27. Members of both
societies came to aid their fellow
members in an enthusiastic struggle.
The stands were crowded with fans
cheering their favorite society.
Through the efforts of dedicated
"Spaniards" like Carol White, Matt
Damon, and Sue Imbriani, SHS beat
the "Frenchman," two games out of
three, despite john Haggar's, Svetlana
jabari's, jim Fogg's, and jeanne Bond's
Svetlana jabari, president of FHS,
said, "The main prupose of the joint
activities is to have fun and gain good
memories of the societies."

is a good way to get more people

ing funds and to share common ex-

church thinks the most important part
of the joint efforts is that Uwe have
fun because we all know each other."
SHS advisor Mrs. Digilio said, "The
joint activities enchance school spirit
and cooperation among students."
Perhaps Matt Damon gave the best
reason for joint FHS-SHS activities:

insure the propagation of congenial
relationships through joint endeavors
in which the members can participate

Table chosen over
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-

and the library is too quiet," so she sat

is curtailed in study halls. Sue Im-

Crucifer of Blood.

tery, won the most applause from the
students in the Enrichment Program.

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

hanced by culinary appreciation, and

Michael McClearn said, "Really,
dancing is a means of staying in

Frieda Banks danced because "it's

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

many beats per second."
Maureen Daly said, "Now that a lot

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.

title with at least 100 points. Also, that

fact that "Hercules had blue eyes."

VC never stra ed
far from basics
he 60'sg a time of changes and rev-
olutions in civil rights, values, and
education. 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.

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
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-
Owen Scott volunteered. He said,
'SWell, I was inspired and sitting in
the second rowg it was a quick jump

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

ot all students learn at the same
rate: some learn rapidly, and others
don't. 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,

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

feel the ten percent is too much, oth-

Todd Wynkoop, who took social
studies, English, and math AP's said,

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-

basically "show music" selected from

The music was from productions

It's not at all easy.
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. "I really enjoy

play is a wonderful thing
because it incorporates the talents
of so many actors and actresses,
singers and dancers, drummers and
pianists, artists and directors and
salesmen. These people bring their
own talents to a play, blend them
together, and create a finished prod-

the seriousness of rehearsals, they

an unexpected uproar. They circu-

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-
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."

The main reason Mr. Wallner and
the editorial board wanted to use
the dress-clothes portraits, was that
"it would give the girls a chance to
dress in their own clothes and to
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

ix years ago, after years of
struggle, the Vietnam War ended. 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
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.

people. Along with the rest of their

"We marched through Washington
to Lafayette Park. We held a demon-

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.

Skater captureg style
"It takeg alot of bump5"
ance probably one of the
most self-satisfying of the arts. 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

Mary Kopaskie and two of her sis-
ters, Faith and Ann, are the only Ko-
paskie-kids left at home: the other
eight are either married or at college.
"Usually," Mary said, "I work after
school until 6:00, and then my sisters
work with my 'father until 8:30. The
person who works until 6:00 works
with the hired help.
"When I work, I take the money
and wait on the customers out front.
Sometimes I make the sandwiches,
and I do a lot of cleaning."
Mary said that she and her sisters,
don't get paid for working in the store,
'Sjust an allowance because it's family-
oriented." She doesn't mind not earn-
ing the minimum wage, and she
doesn't mind the work taking up so

She also said, 'lDuring the summer I

The market used to remain open on
the holidays, but this year they closed
it. Mary said that the reason is that
"my parents are getting tired. We're
open fifteen hours a day because my
father believes you should work hard
for your living. When he was a boy,
he ran the farm because his father
died when he was nine.
"Our family is closely bound," Mary
continued. 'AI like the big family, espe-

time to open all the presents, because

"When they were over, I realized how
much fun it was, so I just continued."
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-

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

not such a

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.

minor, and some not so minor.

people. Very friendly. You must un-

Those people unfamiliar with the
Indian lifestyle are apt to make state-

for mud hogans is that the Navajos are

"There is no permanent house for
the Navajo, but this is what the Na-
vajo wants. He doesn't feel unfortu-

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

Contrary to what most believe, Mr.

discriminated against. Many Indians
have gone into politics and are leading
citizens in the community. Mr.

oney is the cement of the mod-
ern world, but it is a cement that
flows freely. It forever changes hands
- from nations to communities to
common man. 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
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
And today john's Ltd. sells jeans.
