Camera! Action! These are the commands of filmdom. They are expressions which capture the drama and excitement of l969-70 at Van Buren Senior lligh School. And what better mode of commu- nication is there ol' presenting such a Know" story than through the modern medium of the motion picture-often heralded as the most creative form of true American art. ,lust as ai motion picture could not he lilmed without rlireetors, producers, charac- ters, scenes and script, neither could our story he presented without these five vital elements. ln truth, without them there would be no story to tell. This composite story is representative of 'all who play an role at Van Buren Highethe cast, directors, producers. lt is evcryor1e's story because it is. . . THF: POINTFIR STORY 4 i tm -'K' -1,S if ,E 'Q ,Q P X L. 4.,. L , , M1 x E Zvi X5 is . ggi X ' li' iii 'a mi THE SCENES Filmed where it actually happened, our story has many different scenes. Two of them, however, are: The buildings-as modern the generation they encompass. The faces-as readable as the script itself in telling of the hopes, expectations, joys and sorrows of the characters. 6 S s s f i W 4 1 I u u Q Scene of Life Reveals Victory, Defeat Life, to the characters in our story, means more than merely breathing or simply existing. Life, to them, is an- imated, alive, the thrills and happiness it can bring may reach the point of intoxication. As a modern day composer wrote, 'il want to live, not merely survivefi so it is with our east. Living every mo- ment to its fullest, extracting from lilfe each fulfilling particle. Accomplishing such a task not only means enjoying the happiness life affords but also carrying its responsi- bilities as well. Service, ambition, participation, all are necessary to obtain the most from life. Even doing things we consider unpleasant and associating with people we dislike helps to em'ich life and our tolerance of others. Frequently the key to success is summed up as not merely doing what you like but liking what you do. ln filming our story, life neces- sitates many, varying pictures for there are many of life. There are the exciting moments of cheering your team to victory, the unguarded moments of being yourself, the serious moments of contemplation. . .all of these are life. All must be present for life to be portrayed in its true dimension. l 8 9 ,. Q Scene of Color Many things add color besides merely the hues of color, such as red, blue, green, and white. Living, vibrant existence adds much to the color of a movie. Even before the era of Techni- color, many films were described as "colorful,'7 just as many books are described in that manner. For color also describes the depth and vitality pro- duced in the picture. Without both types of color our story would have no depth. With them the picture is alive and moving. 10 HHH Nm H QM img SXMQQESMWHQ GH HHN H H X, Him H J Li. ' WH MHVM , M ,L L V ,H x,2',e,u, Hoi-H -1 -gb OH. .

Preparing signs and skits for a pep rally, running a long, hard campaign for a class office, performing services for others, the satisfaction of seeing your painting completed, bringing home high ratings from hand and choral music competitions, passing a senior English Lestfall of these involve long hours of hard work. No 'GOscars" are given for these long hours spent preparing the sigis and skits, or working in the library, or on the newspaper or yearbook. There are no cheering audiences, no scream- ing fans, yet the rewards are still present. Though this backstage drudg- ery oftentimes has no rewards in the form of money, grades, or gifts, a special feeling of satisfaction-unique to our schoolfhelps to make it all seem worthwhile. The friendships and experience gained frequently are more valuable than the other prizes could ever be.

But possession is not that simplef' That quote from an American short story refers to intangible as well as material objects. Knowledge is one of those things not easily possessed. . .the only way to obtain it is seek it out with determination, perseverance, and maybe even a little courage. 18 School Board, IVIr. Tate IVIap Busy Year l l 1 1 l l SUPERINTENDENT TATE MUST look over the books containing school finance reports. He examines the books with his secretary, lVlrs. Martha Howell. 20 Organization and future planning are the everyday tasks of Mr. James R. Tate, superintendent of Van Buren Public Schools. Mr. Tate is well experienced in the school system, having been associated with it for the last fifteen years. Though Mr. Tate has many duties, his major responsibility is seeing that all schools function properly. Mr. Tate acts as executive officer of Van Buren School Board, which has juris- diction over appropriations and all matters dealing with education in the Van Buren School System. 'l'he School Board officers include Dr. M. Graham, presidentg Mr. Louis Peer, vice presidcntg and Mr. Ralph McClure, secretary. A friendly smile or a worried look may cross Mr. Tate's face as he begins the schedule ahead of him. Supervising the education of 3,133 students is a year around job. When classes end for studcnts in May, lVlr. Tale must begin planning the coming year. THROUGH THIS DOOR is the office of the superintendent, Mr. James Tate, the coordinator of activities and cunriculum for the Van Buren Public School System. i i i DR. M. AI. GRAHAM, president of the school MR. TATE MUST meet intermittently with faculties of all Van Buren Schools. These meetings board, presides over all meetings of the panel. help keep teachers informed of the system's goals. DECIDING THE MANY issues that determine a successful year in the Van Buren school system is the School Board. Seated left to right are: Charles Pursellg Ralph McClure, secretaryg Dr, M. J. Graham, president. Standing left to right: Robert Marionp Bob Vandergriffg Gene Bellg Leonard Kiblerg and Dr. Louis Peer, vice president. 21 Officials Face Largest Student Body Ever Xlr. Bill Mitchell, principal, and Mr. Hex Yerby, assistant principal. found themselves faced this year with directing the largest student body in the history of Van Buren High School. As principal, Mr. Mitchell finds a full schedule ahead of him of presiding at the faculty meetings and supervising the general instructional programs. While Mr. Mitchell handles cur- riculum formulation and faculty relations, Mr. Yerby is dealing with discipline and related problems. Coach Yerby, former Van Buren athlete, was named to the post of head coach and assistant principal in the spring ol' 1969. Besides time-consuming school MR. MITCHELL AND MR. TATE meet together in an unscheduled tour of the campus. Often such checks must be made on the spur of the moment, due to their busy schedules. 22 functions, Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Yerby attend seminars at the University of Arkansas and other large institutions to gain knowledge concerning the up- dating of high school teaching meth- ods. Faculty members also found these beneficial. MAKING SURE THE bank books balance is an important item on the principa1's busy agenda MANY MILES ARE covered each day by Mr Rex Yerby as he assists Mr. Mitchell in keeping the various departments running smoothly. MATRICULATION FEES, music fees, band fees, typing feesfthe cost of education-is paid by one student's mother. MR.. REX YERBY runs up against some stiff competition from Marlene Pursell as he prepares for a jump shot. The assistant principal, who also serves as head football coach, believes in the benefits of athletic competition. Mr. Mitchell works with class presidents in order to help coordinate student activities. They are left to right: Sandy Ragge, juniorg Barbara Wilson, sophomoreg Nelson Ballard, senior. 23 Rockwell Requests IVIore Confidence 6'lVlorc confidence should he placed with counselors in solving personal, as well as academic problemsf, says Mr. Walter Rock- well, guidance counselor. Future planning, selection of colleges, Merit Scholarship Tests, A.C.T. tests, SCAT tests, ability tests, and aptitude tests-all are a big part of lVlr. Rockwcllis job. Offering advice and assurance, lVlr. Rockwell directs many students in problems concerning school plans and decisions about later life. A Student Council sponsor for 1969-70, lVlr. Rockwell is well informed on student government and its goals. Supervising the many fund-raising projects of Student Council, lVlr. Rockwell finds himself working long hours. This yearls council plans to take a trip to Six Flags Over Texas at the close of school. Mr. Rockwell spends long hours collecting material from colleges that will he helpful to students, in deciding what college they wish to attend. '4We need to visit with as many students as possible to accomplish our purposef' he adds. THE GUIDANCE OFFICE provides students with necessary work materials and books. Lynn Preston, senior, studies a college catalogue. 24 RICHARD THOMAS, SENIOR, receives help with his course of study from Guidance Counselor, Walter Rockwell. WALTER ROCKWELL, glances over information to better acquaint himself with students' needs. - 5 ,Ns INTERMITTENT TRIPS T0 the office are common for many students. Usually the visits involve the purchasing of supplies, or obtaining information. Sometimes, however, disciplinary action is involved. Phone CaIIs,Jobs Face Office Staff The ring of the phone, a student with a question, and principal, Mr. Mitchell, seeking a file4all happening spontane- ously. This is an ordinary day for Mrs. Rheha Henley, secretary to the principal, and Mrs. Martha llowell, secretary to Mr. james R. Tate, superintendent. Typing out tests, making out pay checks, preparing schedules, and helping with the preparation of the student direc- tory are only a few of many tasks accomplished by these two secretaries. With the help of the office staff, the high school office is run more smoothly and accurately. The students have many duties, two of whom are picking up absentee slips and answering the phone. MRS- RHEBA HENLEY, secretary to the principal, serves as receptionist, treasurer and office coordinator.Her jovial attitude also boosts morale of students and teachers alike. Mrs. Henley Mrs. Howell 25 'Wire MRS. POSEY S WORK consists of a variety of activities. Here, she instructs Dustin Nadeau and Randy Brooks concerning the use of the library. THE WORK IN the library is complex but Mrs. Greig keeps abreast of new developments. She is assisted by library aides who work various periods of the day. 26 Library Facilities Promote Studies The library, with a number of facilities, aids many students by offering a place in which to study, work on themes, and to obtain hooks, magazines, and newspapers. The 350 students in the study hall, which is under the supervision of Mrs. Emma Posey, find much of the same assistance. Mrs. Elsie Greig, librarian for 15 years is well qualified for this position. Assisting Mrs. Greig are 17 student librarians who help in the everyday routine of overdue books, checking out of the 5,187 books, replace- ments of returned books, and keeping the card catalogue in order. Both the library and study hall help promote in-depth examination and careful attention to school assignments. STUDY HALL: Mrs. Emma Posey LIBRARIAN: Mrs. Elsie Greig. ENG: Mrs. Grace Barlow.

Classes Discover Variety Guides English Curriculum Sophomores, juniors, seniors alike struggled to overcome the perilous pitfalls of participles, gerunds, infinitives, retained objects, and all those other little goodies so widely acclaimed by English teachers in Van Buren. As the year progressed, only Business English students escaped literature. While sophomores gained general knowledge, juniors studied American literature and seniors, English literature. However, the merit of this escape has often been questioned because the time usually spent on literature is allotted to the in-depth study of grammar, making Business English a complex course. Self confidence and assurance-two rewards gained through the speech course as students learn to overcome fears. Grammar is put to practical use in the journalism classes as the publications staff reports and records school news. ENG.: Mr. James Faught. ENG., SPEECH: Mrs. Linda May.

ROTC prepares those college-hound students for the senior program, and stu- dents who do not plan to go to college get a grounding in Army life. What's more, those who wish to continue and serve their military obligation may gain fast promo- tion.

Business Skills Prove Helpful To Many Students REPAIRING TYPEWRITER RIBBONS and other minor parts of the typewriter is just one job of Miss Donna Smith, bookkeeping and typing teacher. Having frequently been proven out- standing in its field, the commercial depart- ment offers the two years of typing, two years of shorthand, and year of bookkeeping so vital to those seeking employment in the business field, especially secretarial. Too often these courses are thought to be only for girls planning secretarial careers. However, typing is a 'gmusti' for those college-bound students who have years of research papers ahead of them, and short- hand could prove exceptionally valuable during lectures. Bookkeeping proves essential for record- cording the accounts or transactions of a business.

A FLEET OF buses get plenty of service twice each day, bringing students to school and returning them to their homes. 36 Crews Give Top Service It might be said that two secondary additions to the curriculum are "discus- sion sessionsa' during bus trips and during meals in the ultra-modern cafe- teria. While en route to and from school each day, students have the benefit of careful drivers, and during the lunch hour they receive a variety of body- building foods. In addition to this, the school is kept in order by a meticulous team of custodians. The cafeteria workers, bus drivers, and custodians are important reasons why visitors from other schools remark how much healthier, safer, and more attractive our school is than others. THE LUNCHROOM MENU includes a well- balanced diet which has been outlined by experts. THE SCRIPT Hlndividualism"-one of the key words of our generation-is a frequently used word in 'The Pointer Story." A person seeking individualism is often a seeker of truth.

Since its first edition in 1919, the POINTER TRAIL has been constantly changing. With 1969-70 as no excep- tion, the school-oriented paper benefits its readers in many ways. Editorials and features concern students and school activities, not celebrities and politicians. A prime example of this was the series conducted on dropouts last winter. With last year marking the POINTER,S golden anniversary, the 1970 staff began a new decade by selecting a contemporary theme, mod- ern layout and a new staff. Because of the influence the motion picture in- dustry has in America, especially on teenagers, it was a Nnaturaln as a theme.

The Science Club is open to anyone interested in science and its main pur- pose is the promotion of interest in all things scientific. This year the club traveled to the SEFOR Atomic Project located near Fayetteville, Arkansas, as their main activity for the club. ln order to raise money for this trip a work day was held in which all science club members do- nated their serviccs to thc citizens of the town who needed work done and would make a financial contribution to the club. A Ham and Turkey Raffle was conducted before the Christmas Holi- ' "" days as another money-making project. ROBERT DEAN AND Brenda Walters use the library for Science Club research and study. 68 Partners in Students of all denominations are welcome in the Partners in Christ organ- ization. As a fairly new club at VBHS, it has made a success of its third year. Mr. Homer Cowart, sponsor, works with the members in promoting a more prom- ising Christian life for all students. The club's purpose, to promote Christian character and leadership, was displayed in a visit to Boy's Ranch at Christmas. Also, the week before Christ- mas, a Npost officeii within the school was used as a money-raising project. A collection for UNICEF was a joint effort of the club and the First United Methodist Church. NReach Outw, a crusade conducted in the spring, was the result of Partners in Christ from Van Buren and Fort Smithis Northside and Southside. To- gether a mammoth crusade was pre- sented. Members attended regular meetings before school once a week in which they discussed their business and had a devotional. Ministers in the area pro- vided their services in giving the devo- tionals throughout the school year.

A relatively large squad of 51 players coached by lVlr. Rex Yerby went through a rough schedule of opponents showing hard work and plenty hustle. In the season opener on September 5', the Pointers battled their traditional twin city rival, Fort Smith Northside. The Northside Grizzlies, an AAAA team favored to again capture the state championship, did not have an easy time defeating the Dogs, 30-0. Mistakes by the Pointers in the first half, including a fumble and two blocked punts, were capitalized by Northside scores. The Grizzlies' brilliant running back, Billy Joe Releford, scrambled for three touchdowns in the opening half of play. In the second half, however, the Dogs' defense got tough in recovering two fumbles and intercepting two passes from the Bears. 1969 Van Buren Pointers, Football Scoreboard VB Opponents Sept. 5 FS Northside 0 30 12 FS Southside 0 29 19 Harrison 0 29 26 Subiaco 0 21 Oct. 3 M Home 6 6 10 Fayetteville 6 21 17 Rogers 0 40 24 Siloam Springs 12 6 31 Hunstville 14 15 Ngv, 7 FS St. Anneis 16 14 14 Bentonville 16 40 The powerful Grizzly scoring machine was shut out in the third quarter. On offense, there were good runs made for the Pointers by fullback Larry Winn and halfbacks lVIike Parks and Brad Thomas. The Pointers suffered from an inability to move the ball in losing to AAA Fort Smith Southside, 29-0, on September 12. The Southside Rebels got off to an early 14--0 lead on two touchdown runs by their halfback, Glen Brown. After this, the Dogs just could not catch up. On September 19, the Pointers traveled to Harrison to play the AA Goblins in what was the first inter- conference game for Van Buren. Again, trouble with moving the ball cost the Pointers their first victory as they lost to the Goblins, 29-0.

Though the Pointers lost, 21-6, it was far from easy for the keyed up Bulldogs. The Pointers scored on a pass from Steve Tanner to Gary Reese. The PAT was no good. The touchdown was set up by a 70 yard run by halfback Brad Thomas. ln the second half, the Pointers' defense contained the running attack of the Bulldogs, and Fayetteville was held scoreless. On October 17, the Pointers were crushed by the AA Rogers Mountaineers, 40-0, at Blake- more Field. Mistakes and misfires galore killed the Pointers on offense and defense. It was a night when everything went haywire for Van Buren. But, things were much brighter on October 24, when the Pointers took their first AA conference win of the year by beating the Siloam Springs Panthers, 12-6.

Defensive standout was halfback Wendall Brodie. who accounted- for three of the four interceptions. The Pointers remained the biggest uhomecoming-spoileria in the District AA. On Halloween night, October 31, it was the hcartbreaker of the year as the Pointers were edged by AA Huntsville, 15-I4-. Huntsville's Eagles were ahead 7-0 at halftime, but the Pointers came back in the second half strongly. The Eagles were held scoreless throughout the third quarter of play: the Dogs had scored on a seven yard touchdown run by fullback Larry Winn and another six points was added on a one yard plunge by halfbaek Tom Martin. Martinis score was followed by a two point conversion which came on a pass from Steve Tanner to Gary Reese.

Not to be left out, however, was the fine group of seniors, whose experience helped bring about many victories. The team's enthu- siasm was never higher, and the opponents were never tougher. All the victories were hard fought, and many of the losses were never easy to lose, as the Dogs put forth their best efforts even in defeat. blany a time this season, the Pointers lost games that were not certain scorewise until the final buzzer. As experience will grow with time. lhe Pointers of lo- morrow will be ready to match any teain that they take on in years to come. Coach Dickie James did a fine job with the Birddogs this year, as he has done every year as head coach. For Coach Clair Bates, it was another winning season for his 'ily' team, with their victories being shadows of things to come for future Pointer teams. The season opened on Decem- ber 2, and the Dogs found the seasonis greeting not a pleasant one as they lost a close one, the Pan- thers at Siloam Springs, 46-44. The Panthers rolled up points with the excellent shooting of 6, 4,7 Steve Hopkins, who gathered 26 points for his evening's efforts. The Pointers were doing a good job of containing llopkins early in the game, with a 21-17 halftime lead over the Panthers.

E. Hawthorne. Season Successful Under New Coach Since the time of ancient Greece, one of man's oldest sports or forms of athletic competition has been track and field competition. At Van Buren, the track and field program, coached by Mr. W. E. Hawthorne, has been very success- ful. Over the years it has had many fine, athletic achievements by its teams. Besides winning numerous trophies from track meets and various relays, there have been achievements by Van Buren athletes in shot put and discus throwing. The success of a track team lies not only in fast runners, but physical con- ditioning is of vital importance as to the success of a team. Coach Hawthorne directs a rigid conditioning program as daily, the runners practice 40, 50, or 100 yard dashes to keep in top shape. At a track meet, physical condition can make the difference between victory and last place. HEAD TRACK COACH W. E. Hawthorne explains the finer points of passing the baton to the sprint relay team. 94 THESE EIGHT THINCLAD ENTHUSIASTS HEADED up this year's sprinting and relays for the 1970 track team at Van Buren.

Develops Healt Physical Education is an important part of daily schedule for hundreds of Van Buren students. Boys physical education is taught by Coach Dick james and girls physical education by Miss Laqucta Jo Bottoms. The activities of these classes con- sist of basketball, touch football, volley- ball, and calistlienics. Van Buren High is fortunate to have some of the latest facilities and one of the best physical education programs in the area. P. E. is one of the few required courses in this school. It is required because it is to help build the body and it also helps pupils learn to get along and cooperate with each other under game type conditions.

Eight Cheerleaders Yell Teams To Successful Sports Seasons School spirit is shown in many ways-yelling with added zeal at pep rallies, football games and basketball games, painting spirit signs until mid- night, or preparing skits for the pep rallies. These are Ways in which all students can support the Pointers. Going one step further, the cheer- leaders give up Friday nights in the fall to attend football games, prepare skits and yells for pep rallies and spend several afternoons practicing and learn- ing ncw cheers. Early in the year, they sold uspiritw food to raise money. Many of the new cheers introduced this year were learned last summer at the cheerleading clinic held on the University of Arkansas campus at Fayetteville. Miss Laqueta Jo Bottoms sponsors the girls and accompanies them on all trips. TWO OF THE most effervescent cheerleaders for the year are Debbie Polk and Cindy Neal.

However, character goes much deeper because it is also defined as Nthe total sum of the distinguishing traits of a person," or, in other Words, how one acts as Well as feels on important moral issues. In fact, good character is probably the most important prerequisite of a Well-rounded Citizen. 102 Glen Campbell Judges Pointer Beautie 104 Nlr.

He has created a new style of music, which was forecast in i'Gentle On My Nlindf, His albums continue to be million-sellers, his television show is a major suceessg and he is expanding his motion picture career.

A p English, History Stimulate Thought Better understanding among people all over the world is a much sought after prize. and in the hope of obtaining it. programs of history, Civics, and geog- raphy are necessities. Understanding can come only from a knowledge and familiarity with our neighbors, problems, their economical and environmental situations. lt is the job of the social studies instructors at Junior High to impress upon their students the importance of this knowledge and understanding. ln many ways. language and social studies are interlinked. The goals of one are promoted by the goals of the other. ln addition to principles, desires, and aims, a common language is an impor- tant element of national unity. Literature can stimulate the mind into creative, realistic. or even philo- sophie thought. It can produce a vivid portrayal of the past. Events known before only as names and dates can he brought to graphic life by a knowing author. SOCIAL STUDIES: Mr. F. R.

Those who make this educational program possible are thus producers of '4The Pointer Story." They are taxpayers, interested in building a continuously better school system. Thus, these devoted citizens make it all possible-without them there would be no educational program as we know it. 174 X A 4 x Q Q Q V 1 f ly? 11- yn f giiif' ',,, .

Story Lives The signs ol' the end of a year are now becoming more evident. The halls will soon become silent and the parking lot will become deserted. Yet, for graduating seniors this is not an ending but a new beginning. It is a time where future plans are made clear and di llieult problems are solved. One must put to use the knowledge gained through hard Work and experi- ence. Many of these activities are learned througli school work. 'l'hus, we dedicate this yearbook to the determination and strength of stu- dents at Yan Buren High School, par- ticularly that ol' the Class of l97O. We would also like to thank Super- intendent james Tate: Principal Billy Mitchell and Secretary liheba llenley. We also thank Ken fkustin. W. A. Christian, Dale Bennett-Aall of the llenington Publishing Company. We especially thank our adviser, Nlr.
