Tor biQ f(A Is yt-a " t r l ' ' Y o C o n I A- Valley ' s 1975-76 Football tear had a rather difficult act to follow How can you improve on a C.I.F. Champion? The Coaches Led Them to Victory What can you do to make the spectators gape in even greater awe? A lot of people were asking them- selves that question, probably dream- ing of a repeat performance. The dreams were not to be lived out, for Walley ' s team didn ' t win another title; but then you sure can ' t say that they disappointed anybody. Dick Hill It was a unique season that show- ed us a few close games, but a few not so close. There was less depend- ence on individual efforts and more on teamwork. Many young sophomores and juniors were moved up to replace graduated veterans. If anybody questioned their ability, these young- sters didn ' t take long to prove it. The " kids " , with a few veteran seniors playing here and there, rolled up another impressive season record winning eleven contests and recording one lone defeat at the hands of revenge-minded Colton. The team was always full of spirit. This was partly because the Falcon team was always followed by a tremendous crowd wherever they went. There were times at away games when the Falcon fans outnumbered the home team fans, showing both their pride and spirit for their team and school. Jen Haley Through the guidance of an experienced coaching staff led by Head Coach, Dick Hill, the team ' s weakness transformed into strengths. They brought the team closer in spirit so that they worked as a team instead of as individuals. This made a championship team. Tiny Lynch, Fred Morales, and Mike Tesmalie, three returning veterans, were chosen by their team- mates to represent them as Tri- Captains. This year marked the fourth year in a league championship. The win- loss record during those last four years is an impressive 39-5-2.

They came close to a chance for the GIF Field Hockey playoffs. Sandy Ruller coached the varsity and Miss Ann Perales coached the junior varsity. The teams chose their captains, Varsity captain was Yogi Cabrera, co-captain was Cindy Eoert, Junior varsity captain was Anna Bracamontes and Esther Tabile was co-captain. The junior varsity was comprised mostly of girls new to the game of hockey. With just a few veterans, the junior varsity placed second in the league. The girls practiced very hard to complete their two game a week schedule. They are to be commended for a good season.

The gymnastic team enjoyed an improvement of 100% over last year With the help from Mrs. Sandra Rhone and her assistant Mrs. Jean Davis, the team experienced a trium phant season. These athletes competed in both compulsory, a re- quired routine, and optional routines In competition they proved to the spectators and themselves that nothing was impossible. Although gymnastics is a fairly nsw sport at Valley, the team mem- bers worked diligently to promote its popularity. With the world wide interest in gymnastics, this sport should grow each year.

Mi HI f ' Tomorrow ' s Varsity c The 1975-76 Falcon wrestling team over came many obstacles this season. Injuries and other problems were ever present. The Valley matmen, however, led by Coach Ron Roper, gained much experience through the tough season. Varsity wrestlers, Mark Mercer, Pat Malloy, Gerado Valenzuela, Mark Slaughter, and Robert Castro, through hard work and long practices, made their way to com- pete in first round C.I .F. Junior varsity and frosh-soph teams were mostly young and inexperienced, but they became much stronger as the season progressed. Starting with the city tournament in December, the team showed not only its first signs of talent but also its many problems. Quickly overcoming its main handicaps the grapplers started to win instead of lose. The Falcons ended its season against Lowell and, from there, went on to League placements and C.I.F. Taking League championships in their divisions were 98 lb. junior Mark Mercer and 106 lb. junior, Pat Malloy. Taking second in the 122 lb. class was senior Gerado Valenzuela. Also in the finals were sophomore Mark Slaughter and junior Robert Castro in 136 lb. and 178 lb. classes. 74 Sports f S " o m y Tony Soto Student Coach Ron Roper Head Coach Dai-ryl Winters 98 lb. class ' «g Ry „ - 9 J Mark Mercer 106 lb. class Gordon Hummel 157 lb. class Robert Castro 178 lb. class Mike Wolasco 195 lb. class Greg Williams Heavyweights Matmen Showed Spirit Junior Varsity i r ( « Rubin Acosta, IVlilce Hill, IVIike Bush, Claude IVlims, Brett Picl ett, Don Berry, David Scanlon, Gamaliel Santana, Jim Brokaw, V.J.

Although the team was knocked out of playoffs in the third round, the feeling of victory still lingered because of the out- standing wins over such soccer schools as Damien, Newport, Harbor, and Palos Verdes High School. The team was led by outstanding halfbacks: Tony Valdepena, Isidro Perez, and Salvador Sanchez. On the defensive line the players knew their parts and, along with goalkeeper, Silvano Munoz, they kept back the goals. Defensive players included Luis Rivas, Miguel Macias, and Luis Lopez. Another important and successful I section of the team were the forwards: Juan Arturo Martinez, Ignacio Perez, and Raul Villasenor. Although the team ended with an outstanding record of 16-1-1, they should be looking forward to a bigger season next year for the team is graduating only two seniors, Salvador Sanchez and Silvano Munoz. The junior varsity also shared in the glory of winning the league championship as they took the title in the JV division. The team, under Coach Lewis Bratcher, ended their season with an outstanding score of 9-1. The JV ' s consisted mainly of freshmen but, according to Coach Bratcher, " They ' re very strong and could play against any varsity team of any other school. " I k. M -.

Coming into season. Valley hasn ' t lost a league meet since 1971, producing an incredible string of 33 straight victories. The impressive array of statistics doesn ' t end there though. Valley ' s overall win-loss record since the opening season in 1959 is an almost un- believable 90-10. Few, if any schools can boast such an outstanding achievment. Sprinter Mike Rhue returned to defend his league title in the 100 yard dash. Shotputters Mike Watson and Mike Tesimale provided trouble for opposing weightmen; and Ramon Estrada, Steve Aguilar, and Edgardo Salera led the distance runners. Jim Conlay, now in his third year, has yet to lose a league meet. The efforts of him and his assistants make such records possible. SACK ROW L-R: M. Rafferty, C. M K. Hoffman, M. Watson, M.

" Miss Chacon, Coach z- f X The young and inexperienced soft- ball teams looked forward to a suc- cessful season this year. The teams consisted mostly of underclassmen with only one senior. Pitching for both theVarsity and J .V . looked strong this year , The hitting started to come through and Valley ' s team looked good all around. Varsity team was coached by Miss Anita Chacon with Miss Linda Brooks coaching J .V . , Manager for the team was Brenda Russell and assisting her, Carrie Dimas, Their job was to take care of the equipment hand out and collect uniforms, and keep score of the games.

The team was young and probably considered inexperienced due to the fact that there were only three returning lettermen. On the other hand, the rest of the team consisted mostly of players from last year ' s Soph-Frosh team that was the Freeway League Champion losing only one league game. The head coach of varsity was Herschel Musick. His assistant coach was Ken Tucker. Mike Everett was chosen by his team-mates to be their captain this year. The pitching looked good. The bats started connecting with the ball for hits . The team hoped for a healthly season with no injuries and for a chance as Freeway League Champs of 1976. ?S ' !rjms : Sports 100 IT was a loiai team enori.

Falcoi Sports 103 T r I DO C • E £ M e e t C h a m P s After having com- pleted a successful water polo season, most of the aquatic athletes returned for swimming. The 1976 Falcons dominated their early competition and easily won the city champion- ship in a tri-meet. As they progressed into league competition, the swimmers found it difficult to swim away from their opponents, and lost some close con- tests. The team suffered from a lack of experi- enced swimmers, with only one senior, Steve Slaughter, returning. Despite this lack, the upstart Falcons team, which consisted of juniors and sophomores, surprised many overpowering teams. Most surprising were the varsity relays which almost went undefeated through the sea- son. In the 200 yard medley relay. Gene Linxwieler, Greg Hummel, Neil Groom, and Terry Wright sliced through the water to many victories. The 400 yard freestyle relay, con- sisting of Steve Slaughter, John Contreras, Gilbert Segovia, and Gene Linxwieler, closed many meets with a victory . One of the best efforts of the year was made by Steve Slaughter as he broke the 100 yard butterfly record set by James Adame in 1973 and lowered the mark to 1:01 ,9, in his first attempt at the record . Another outstanding swimmer, Greg Hummel, teeter-tottered with the 50 yard freestyle record all year. It was a great year for aquatics.

Vasquez Between the time that our parents took us to our first kindergarten class, to the day we changed our tassels from the I eft to the right side, teachers have always been considered the antagonists. Looking back, lowever, we are now aware that those men and women in front of the classrooms were con- cerned for our well being. Through the most most adverse conditions, from squadrons of paper airplanes to ordinary classes of freshmen, they kept their cool. Usually! When they didn ' t, it was our fault. Usually! In addition to the teachers, a staff of administrators also worked for us. They ran the " madhous " for us with a system that worked fine. Usually! Now, as graduating seniors, we offer our thanks to the staff for twelve great years. V . . 1 i W m ■ iMl !■ 1. Mr. John " smiley " Daywalt, principal and his sec- retary, Gin Corsello. 2.

They elected spirited class officers who led them in raising money for the class. They sponsored Rec nights and took part in Spirit Week events. They developed pride in their class and cheered loudly at all Pep assem- blies. With this kind of enthusiasm, the Class of 1979 should prove to be one of the best classes ever to attend Valley High School. 5 f Ti f f s.

However, they main- tained their " cool " in typical Falcon style. They elected officers and began their four year journey on the road to higher education. They soon found out that their first duty was to raise money to support their class. Through their officers. Student Council, and determination, that goal was completed. By their junior year enough money had been raised to sponsor a fantastic Junior-Senior Prom, which was held at the Disney- land Hotel. Such projects as Rec nights, candy sales and button sales helped make the year enjoyable. As seniors, they bent their efforts toward preparing for goals after high school. They investigated colleges, study programs, various job opportunities, and worried about finals and grades. Plans came closer to reality when the time came to order senior pictures, graduation announcements, and caps and gowns. The senior year was a time for keeping traditions. The senior class fought tokeepsuch traditions as the senior patio, senior ditch day, and leaving assemblies before underclass- men. The senior year, above all, was a period of awareness. It was a time to face reality. Walking down the aisle to receive their diplomas, the seniors knew that 12 years of required education were behind them, and finally recognized that the future was strictly their own choice.

Program Now We ' ve Seen Everything r H 204 Closing I have often wondered just how many hours I ' ve spent busting my school-worn brains working on yearbook material. Long ago I lost count of all the late night staff meetings we held just prior to deadlines. I always thought of those nights as punishment; however, I soon realized that every other staff member was in the same boat. Now that the book Is completed and I will have no more deadlines to meet, I find myself look- ing back at the year with appreciation to the staff. SHERRI HOWERTON, senior editor, was the only other three year veteran on the staff. She knew all the headaches and heartaches it takes to put a book together. Sherri worked hard and helped me a lot as associate editor. Long may her hunger pangs strike. Sports editor, PAM GNESDA, had the largest and toughest section. More than once she sighed in frustration because something wasn ' t right. Thanks, Pam, for holding it together. Much of the artistic flair in the book was done by Faculty Editor, KATHY MULCAHY. Thanks go to her for burning the midnight oil when we needed it most. This year ' s division pages were designed by IGNACIO ACOSTA who did a magnificent job and was a real lifesaver. LOUIS PADILLA, freshman editor, re ally had to work against the impossible. He had the largest class section and his work was Interrupted because someone broke into his locker, stole the pictures, and flushed them down a toilet. But it takes more than that to keep a good editor down. CINDY HOLSTON seemingly had little trouble with her sophomore section, even though we disagreed in just about everything. She did her job in grand fashion. JANET MULCAHY wasted little time in completing her junior section which left her free to help other staff members with their chores. She always encouraged me to keep going on those days when nothing seemed to go right. JANN BARBOUR, activities editor, came into the class knowing almost nothing about producing a yearbook. She was eager to learn, though, and listened to everything I had to say. Thank you, Jann, for patiently putting up with me all year. ANEATRA JONES AND SUE FADGEN had a tough job with the club section. In doing this section they had to arrange for club pictures and get the names of every member. They really deserve a round of applause. DONNA STEWLOW, BRIAN POLLACK, AND NANCY MELENDEZ didn ' t have long titles, but the jobs they did were instrumental in pro- ducing this book. They made my job a little easier by helping out here and there with the busy work, DALE PRINCE, head photographer first semester, was in semi control of the staff photographers who were semi uncontrollable. RICHARD KING, BRETT PICKETT, GARY BRADSHAW, DAN BOTT all contributed the many photographs that make up this book. V.J. LOVERO deserves a special pat on the back for the many extra hours he spent In the dark room. Our business manager, CARRIE DAVIS, had one of the most responsible assignments on the staff. In addition to selling books, collecting and counting money, keeping accurate records, Carrie also had the job of putting the ad section together. ROBIN CONCAN began her job as academic editor with little enthusiasm. All it took, though, was a little sweet talking to convince her that she was just right for the job. MRS. ELAINE STUCKEY isn ' t really a staff member, but she is the one who refereed the whole mess. She was our beloved advisor; you know, the one who told us what we were doing wrong. In addition there was MR. JOHN THOMAS, the yearbook representative. His help was Invaluable in putting the book together. MR. RON STOKER did more than his share for us. Since he wasn ' t obligated to do anything at all for the book, I really want him to know how sincerely his help was appreciated. After narrowing the cover design down to three choices, we took a look at MR. BERNIE HAWIM ' s sketch; and it was love at first sight. So, it ' s all over. Thanks, staff. And thank you all Valley Falcons for being interested in the annual and for purchasing the finished product. Eight months of long, hard but rewarding work is now in your hands depicted as a year of memories. We hope you like it.

THE FIRST 200 YEARS A knowledge of American history is an invitation to experience the ac- comphshment, drama, tragedy and hope of an infant nation struggling to grow up. Sturdy, determined pioneers hacked away at the edges of a raw continent and, with blunders and achievements alike, modeled a country with a spirited nature and a united commitment to individual liberty for every one of its citizens. Americans, great and not so great, have given us a heritage to carry on and improve upon. Farmers and soldiers, industri- alists and merchants, dreamers and leaders, are all there in two centuries of progress. But the maturing isn ' t finished. You ' ll find the boundaries of growth as endless today as when our forefathers first envisioned them. You can seek out your own destiny with the wisdom and judgement which comes with re-creation of the past. Your knowledge, dreams and industry will carry on through many more centuries of living history . In congress, JrLY4, 776. fie imam moui erfarof ton .i£, .. .. tatc$ of rmnca. 5»af e , My M.

The blood of the slain, the weeping voice of- na- CHAPTERS OF AMERICAN HISTORY b The Stamp Act of 1765 was an attempt by Eng- land to tax items that were wholly American. The colonists reacted in seething resentment which erupted into angry protestations. The first blood of the American Revolution was spilled during one such incident at Boston in 1770. Several Americans lost their lives over a snowball thrown at a British sentry. In the fight to achieve commerce equality, the United States found itself in a naval war over shipping lanes. Fort McHenry was heriocally held during a British naval bombardment, and the stars and stripes still flew after a night of hard fighting. The next morning Francis Scott Key penned the immortal words of what would become the national anthem . Settlers had to have permanent access to the new lands, so canals and bridges were built to carry stages and wagon trains loaded with machinery destined for settlements in the West The pioneers foresaw great wealth in the cheap acreage that was available. Frontiersmen cleared the wilderness, built set- tlements and drove back the Indians. The Pony Express and the telegraph became primary means of communication. Agriculture was the wealth of the country. American inventions of the time were often re- lated to working the soil. The McCormick Reaper, mowing machines, textile looms and the cotton gin were instrumental in the settling of new frontiers. In 1848, James Marshall found gold in the race of a sawmill he was building for John Sutter at Coloma, California. The lust to " get rich quick " was the force behind this biggest and gaudiest gold rush ever. While " gold rush fever " gripped the country, states were increasingly more divided on the slavery issue. Civil war broke out in the East. This " Brothers War " was bitterly fought and, though the scars remain even today, slavery was abolished. Cities grew at an alarmmg pace often without regard to the limits of safety The great Chicago fire of 1871 burned the bustling cattle market empire beyond recognition. But the pioneer spirit was not broken. Chicagoans began re- building and preparations were underway to celebrate the 100th birthdav of the country . The " Iron Horse, " carrying homesteaders, greatly helped settlement of the new country. The first transcontinental railroad connected the country at Promontory Summit, Utah, on May 10, 1869. Transportation was setting the pattern for the American way of life. The country became a mobile society with electric trolleys, automo- biles, farm machinery, and bicycles, all the rage. Along with the accessibility of travel came a new era of nationalism. A World War called upon the nation ' s young men to unite and fight. After the war in Europe, the nation pulled itself together and industry flourished once again. A carefree America bur- ied war memories in the new moving pictures, telephones, light bulbs, electric generators, stock market ticker tape machines, phono- graphs and a wealth of inventions from the fer- tile minds of its young inventors. Baseball be- came the national sport and prohibition was Black Thursday, October 24, 1929. saw the American stock market crash to the lowest level in history. Panic set in as the unemployment level skyrocketed. The country was in its worst economic crisis. Slowly, but surely, the wounds of the " crash, " the " dust bowl, " and poverty healed. •SJK-RATION «s JS| STAMP m.

Upon their return from four years of battle, the veterans forged ahead with an eye on a " better life for everyone. ' Several mod- erate recessions in the SO ' s and 60s reminded cautious citizens of past decades. Nearly 100 vears of struggling for civil liberties were realized when President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 law. The Act outlawed segregation in any The ies e.hed light on a new trouble for the nation as it approached its 200th birthday. The world s energy sources and natural re- sources were being used up faster than they could be replenished. Americans once agai n waded into a new frontier. The " energy crisis ' and " ecology " were prominent words in the language Ways to save nature from the neglect of mankind and ways of preserving precious fuel without damaging that balance of nature were the objectives of Americans across the Huge strides were being taken in the scientific field. Television became a part of every family s life. National events were household topics — while they happened — thanks to the new medi um. Individuals and groups were seen ' on the tube ' as they advocated new social reform or justice, or special causes of their own. T gave individuals and political systems power greater than ever before. Audio-visual journalism had made its impact. Earth s crises spurred Americans into further pioneering This time outer space. Ameri- can asiioiiduis wcic ihe fuM on the surface of the moon and the U.S. was first to build a " sky- lab " for more scientific study. American is still learning and growing after a mere 200-year infancy. The original determina- tion of our forefathers was told again in the words of Neil Armstrong as he made the first step on the moon a small step for man, but a giant step for mankind THE CHANGING NATION HAWAII (50th state) X — ALASKA (49th state) Admitted to the Union in 1959 Admitted to the Union in 1959 Ownership of land had been just a dream to most of the colonists from feudal England. With the great expanse of cheap land opening up in the West, the dream became reality. The Louisiana Purchase of 1803 opened the first sizable frontier in the Midwest, but the nation was not ready for it yet. It took a growing market in the East, where land was getting high-priced and scarce, and develop- ment of good transportation, to really start the frontier movement. The Gold Rush caused hordes of settlers to take various routes to the Pacific Coast and its yellow riches. The railroads brought farmers and ranchers, along with the miners, who decided to stop all along the routes and build their homes. Railroads were instrumental in the quick civilization of the West, bringing people in num- bers so large that the resentful Indians were finally pushed back into unwanted and infertile areas . America became a haven for immigrants from every na- tion as freedom beckoned them to the teeming cities of the East, the plains, and the rich west coast farmlands. Sick of the Civil War and with their own lands divided up and lost, many Southerners set out to " begin again " in the virgin territories. " Westering " soon became the national tradition as North and South moved together toward a new life. Americanism was advanced socially, by the hard-working, bare-fisted types who settled the frontiers.

NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF Without realizing it, England instilled in the colonists the individual purpose and ingenuity that necessity breeds. With trade goods cut to a minimum, determined young leaders of the time set out to find ways of surviv- ing without support from the Mother Country. Agricultural methods and machines and labor saving devices were designed by our forefathers. As frontiers opened, Yankee genius had to conquer natural barriers in the wild new country, so suspension bridges were invented and methods of transportation were perfected for the purpose of opening the untamed areas. Later, they sought to section off the land with the revolution- ary and controversial invention — barbed wire. Cooper ' s 1-horsepower Tom Thumb train in 1830 and later, automobiles like the first Model T, and the 4-horsepower airplane ; became American modes of travel from city to city and coast to coast. Americans knew that the fertile lands of this nation would produce unequalled harvests if machines were designed to take over for man. They knew also that trade routes were difficult to travel and manufacturing would have to be done close to home. The cotton gin, textile looms, drill presses and a reaper which could cut six times as much grain as a hand scythe were some of the tools invented. Protection for themselves and for their young country prodded inventors like Eli Whitney to perfect firearms and others to work on plans for the first submarine. Young inventors like Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison (called the nation ' s most valuable citi- zen) visualized machines that would light the country and open up communication with those in the far cor- ners of the nation. The telephone, telegraph, phono- graph and the first light bulb were discovered in the late 1800 ' s and early twentieth century. This American way of doing for oneself inspired many to become inventors in their own right. Some sought to save labor and mass- produce for profit while others envisioned not only riches, but excitement and adventure as they discovered ways to defy nature. Throughout the past 200 years the American mind has been unleashed to take whatever paths necessary to ful- fill the needs. In the last half-century, the pace of dis- covery has been overwhelming and inventions for the taming of the universe lie in the grasp of America while the habit of " finding a way " is ingrained in its people. The seeds of industrial America were sown by these inventors resulting in today ' s mechanized society.

A stage wasn t the most comfortable was to go, but you could get from city to cit ' for as little as $3 — at the amazing pace ol six miles per hour. Compare today s wages with a 12-hour day in the early 1800 ' s. A man earned 50c a day. Of course his dollar bought a littli more than todays. Butter in 1826 was about 5C lb. in the Midwest; eggs, 3C doz . corn 6C bu., wheat, 25c bu.; and a cou could be bought for $5 . With travel becoming the American t tion, you could choose train, wa horseback or the water. A canal ride, bed and board included, averaged 3 or 4c per mile. And when you reached your des- tination, you could sit down to a 5, or eve 10 course meal for 25c. (Ladies 20(t, consideration of appetite.) Farmers in the early 1800 ' s could own iht famous McCormick Reaper for a merr $100. But the Civil War increased prices a the machine became the first item farmer- could buy on time payments for the sum of $1,500. A good suit of clothes then might cost $1.95 and ladies waists (blouses) were marketed for 49c to $3.50 with a whole dress pattern priced at 15(t. Cookstoves, " quality-satisfaction guaran- teed, " could cost you $29.25 at $4 per month and a dandy heating stove could set you back as much as $5.73 and up. The first electric refrigerator cost $900 — which might be enough to make you faint on your 1907 fainting couch that had cost a mere $7.85. Your new baby travelled in the height ot fashion in a wicker sleeping coach (stroll- er) for the sum of $12.04. If you had $1,500 in 1903 you could show off in one of the first automobiles. Ah, those were the days. Some of the cu rent prices are reminiscent of those day but at frontier prices, which were a who different story. Hardy pioneers had to p, $2 a pound for sugar, too. And the san for a pound of coffee or pepper. Tho- items were only ISC per pound back in cl ilized St. Louis.
