This is the spirit of the Pointers, or Pointer Pride. Memories of our school days as a stu- dent from Van Buren will long be remem- bered, whether it's seeing Mark Douglas make four touchdowns in a game and out- running the whole opposing team or Joe Ray Jones making that impossible basket. It might be seeing Coach Don Dixon yelling from the sidelines or hours spent preparing for Mrs. Grace Barlow's final English exam. No matter which memory is the fondest, they will all be special memories for us to treasure forever. For VBHS's seniors, time will not easily be forgotten. Growing into a bigger world with bigger goals won't let them forget that they were once a Pointer. Once a Pointer, ,always a Pointer, sharing Pointer Pride, each always holding his head high and saying, "l'm proud to be a Pointer!" 1. 5 f' - Lf" -5 f s, - l'.f'i3Esg iii' mi? , Z i WF? HAIR' .

Time is worth keeping to students of VBHS. As the clock chimes, days of student life in high school end for seniors, continue for juniors, and begin for sophomores. Seniors begin to prepare for the respon- sibility of their future, juniors are awaiting the big event, graduation, and sophomores enjoy the thought of only two years to go. Representing VBHS takes up a great deal of time from its dedicated students. The musical girls singing line, the Treblettes travel the community to entertain towns- people. Politicians greet some students to keep in touch with how young people are growing up. Time also plays an important role in . w l N N fx lunch hours, breaks, and the after school rehearsals for the different organizations at VBHS. Almost everyone enjoys the time spent at VBHS. Struggling in the line at the con- cession stand, screaming out your spirit at pep rallies and still trying to buckle down and study. When all adjustments are made, and preparations planned, students need a little Time out for themselves. lVlr. for Bill Colvard, chemistry teacher, instructs one of his classes as they fly paper airplanes that were built students to better understand the make-up of atoms.

Homecoming, too, was "high-spirited" while the Pointers surprised the high-ranked Rogers Mountaineers with a 29-0, everything but blue victory. Spirit sprang up all around. The mini-parade was "spiced up" with a new float contestant from the Spanish classes. Denise Gramlich added beauty to spirit as football homecoming queen Oct. 14. Echoes of the Pointer fight song sounded as quarter- back Vint Bell and split-end Delmar Parks connected with many touchdown passes. Tailback Mark Douglas excited Pointer fans many times with his 60 and 85 yard touchdown runs. The indominable Pointer spirit that began with a touchdown pass from Senior Vint Bell to Junior Delmar Parks at the Van Buren-Alma game will continue until the last senior receives his diploma at Blakemore Field. Denise Gramlich is crowned queen at Blakemore Field. 16 Enjoyment HE hiss: , F if si.

Some of the make up days were scheduled on Saturdays and some of them during the pre-scheduled spring break. Enjoyment 18 VBHS students agree with weather changes During their lunch break on one warm Tuesday afternoon many students found studying, rushing to class, goofing off, and merely gazing at the surrounding people the thing to do.

The Pointer Band put in many summer hours to get "tuned" for marching season. Stationery notes bring piano to music From year to year things change. For the VBHS music department there was plenty of variety in the 1977-78 school year. The grand addition this year was the new Baby Grand K. Kawai piano. The piano is baby blue and cost S3850 dollars. To raise money for the piano and other expenses, the music classes had three money-makers. First they sold stationery products which brought in around S800 dollars. Another project conducted by the choirs annually was the selling of Texas Manor Fruit Cakes. Both business ex- peditions were held in the fall. The yearly fall variety show was really starlike. The theme was "Star Wars". More students than ever before were involved in the performance. The show is known as Season's Vibrations, and the music depart- ment raised approximately S50O dollars from morning and night performances on Oct. 6. The music students raised a total of 31,300 on all three projects. They paid 31,200 dollars on the new piano and the school paid the balance. The music depart- ment will gradually pay back the difference to the school. As every year the Sophomore Girls' Glee Club, Junior-Senior Girls' Glee Club and the Mixed Chorus participated in region festivities. This year the performances were held in Fayetteville at the University of Arkansas. The festival was held on March 3. The singers also participated in the state festival, on April 6, at the University of Central Arkansas. Music classes bring opportunities for individual achievements. Nov. 12, All- Begion tryouts were held at Fayetteville High School. With hard work and determina- tion, VBHS placed eight choral music students out of twenty-One, representing our school. The All-Region choir members are seniors, Sarah Hays, Shelia English, Becky Noel, Clayton French and Linda Wilburn, juniors Jeana Parrish and Tony Kendig. Julie French was the only sophomore contender. All-Region choir was held Jan. 2 at Arkansas Tech in Russellville. Students to try out for All-State were Sarah Hays, Shelia English, Becky Noel, Clayton French and Tony Kendig. Tryouts were held at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway on Feb. 3 and 4. The following week on February 16, through 18, State Choir was held for those who were selected. The Treblettes had a very busy year. They had many engagements ranging from church singing to competition at All-Region Choir. They practiced many long hours to bring forth the harmonious sounds.

Faculty chooses eleven 7 boys', girls sfafe delegates The 1977-78 Boys' and Girls' State delegates spent one full week at camps which were set up to provide the students with more information about the government and its ways. For the eleven students, sunrise was at 6:30 every morning. Exercises and lectures were plans for the delegates' morning activities. All the students found activities relaxing in the afternoon. Mark Douglas was a close contender for the secretarial position of state. Each night the delegates were provided with enter- tainment from fellow state delegates. One delegate put it this way, "There was a lot of talent shown, but not every one on the stage had talent." All meals, rooms, and shirts were free to the delegates. Refreshments could be bought between meal- times at the concession area. Each delegate was assigned a roommate from some other part of the state and were not allowed to see other members of his chapter until the time of departure. The 1977-78 Boys' and Girls' State delegates in- clude Cheryl Batchelor, Linda Robinson, Mike Brooks, Mark Douglas, Mark Elkins, Joe-Bay Jones, Jerry Poague, Andy Scott, Steve Sexton, Tommy Strickland, and Lance Yerby.

Here's the campaign synopsis: ALMA-Van Buren opened the '77 ason with a convincing victory over the ival Airedales, 35-21.Tailback Mark Douglas ontinued his assault on the opposition efenses by rambling for 109 yards and one uchdown. Fullback James Elliff provided he Dogs with an additional 114 yards. Vint ell got the campaign in swing with his first ass attempt being a 74-yard TD toss to end elmar Parks. POTEAU-Douglas ran wild again as he up 119 yards and two touchdowns, being a 67-yard jaunt, in pacing the to a 19-12 bi-state win over Poteau. hit seven of eleven for 77 yards to help Dogs attain 260 total yards offense. LR MILLS-The Pointers traveled to Rock to take on the speedy Mills and succumbed to them 14-7. The were plagued by six turnovers. Van fell behind early on a 52-yard romp Comet speedster Ray Montgomery. VB came back on a 2-yard blast by Douglas but soon trailed again on the next Comet series when Mills quarterback Vernon Withers hit Gerald Tatum for an 11-yard scoring pass. GREENWOOD-Conference foe Green- wood came to town fired up and handily defeated the heavily favored Bird Dogs, 21-6, for the region lead. The Bulldogs led 14-0 at the half and 21-0 before the Pointers marched 72 yards in the waning moments of the contest. The drive was capped by a 23-yard scoring strike from Bell to Parks. FAYETTEVILLE-The Mean Green Machine got back on the winning road by rolling over AAAA power Fayetteville 23-14. Douglas was the catalyst in the victory as he exploded for 136 yards and two TD's. Wing- back Terrance Richardson latched on to a 13-yard scoring throw from Bell for the final tally. However, with the score 21-14 in the last stanza, Pointer punter Eddie Cluck placed the ball on the one yard stripe. Needing a touchdown, Bulldog tailback Jay Trumbo took a pitchout and set sail on an end sweep, but all-conference lineman Lance Yerby crashed into the endzone and pounded on Trumbo for a safety. SUBIACO-Van Buren clinched a tie for the 4AAA title by smashing conference weakling Subiaco, 33-6. Once again Douglas was the big gun in picking up 113 yards and two goals. He began the scoring with a 66- yard gallop and later plunged over from the one. Between his tallies Elliff scampered four yards. Trailing 19-6, Trojan OB Rich Millett took to the air, for one play, because all-region linebacker Mike Brooks jumped in front of an errant pass and toted it to pay- dirt from the 20. Minutes later Bell hit Richardson in the corner of the endzone to end it all. ROGERS-Before the game, the Rogers Mountaineers were no. 6 in the state, un- beaten and untied by rolling over six previous opponents, and had allowed 12 points in the process. But all that was purely secondary as the mighty Pointers crushed the Mounties 29-0 in probably one of VB's greatest shows of all-time. Douglas terrorized the Rogers defense in route to a 194 yard night and three TD's, including 71 and 49 yard romps. The Dogs simply controlled the tilt as they powered their way to 312 yards in all.

Cone, Bates lead Bird Dog charges Established Coaches provide leadership If you were at any of the Pointer basketball games, you probably witnessed the coaching talents of two remarkable coaches. These two men are head coach Benton Cone and assistant coach Clair Bates. Both of these coaches have unbelievable records. Coach Cone is in his fourth year of coaching at Van Buren High School. ln his first three years as the Pointers' head coach his troups chalked up two district champion- ships and three Crawford County champion- ships. One of the most successful coaches in Arkansas High School basketball history is our very own Clair Bates.

Sm GMS Seven Seniors backbone of Pointers No. 2 ranked Dumas ended the Pointer cage season by defeating the Bird Dogs 42-20 in the state AAA playoffs at Pine Bluff and in addition ended the high school careers of seven seniors who controlled QOW of the Pointers' playing time. But these seven spirited upperclassmen chalked up a 13-11 record in addition to being named to many honors. Tough scheduling by Coach Cone toughened the Pointers and thus allowed them to waltz through region with a 6-O mark. The season opener proved unfruitful for the Dogs as they dropped it to the Northside Grizzlies, 47-31, Dec. 2. Van Buren shot a weak 332 from the field. Four days later the Pointers came back to even their record by squeezing by Rogers, 31-30, in a real barnburner. Springdale came to town three days later and handed the Dogs a 55-39 loss.

Charleston proved too much for the Pointers on Dec. 16 as they lost to the Tigers 55-41. Steward tallied 26 points to pace the Dogs to a 56-42 win three days later over Mulberry. The Pointers could only manage two points in the final stanza to drop a tough one to the Northside Grizzlies 39-29. VB led at the half 24-22 and was tied after three. The Bird Dogs debut in the Annual Fort Smith Classic saw the Pointers drop their first two tilts. The first to Southside 63-45 and the latter to Ozark 52-41, which saw Ozark hit 24 points from the charity stripe. The first game of the new year was a 42-37 loss to highly rated Russellville on Jan. 3. Van Buren took their second straight from Rogers by defeating the Mountaineers 36-32, Jan. 6.

Van Buren hit 24 points from the free- throw line enroute to a 52-48 region victory over Subiaco. Three days later on Jan. 27 the Pointers dropped a marathon match to Springdale, 64-63. lt took three overtimes for the Bulldogs to win it. Steward was high with 19 with Jones right hehind at 18. The Pointers then got revenge on the Alma Airedales on Jan. 28. Van Buren showed no mercy on the hapless Airedales as they won 61-53. Mark Douglas had 14 points while Jones hit 13. Three days later the Dogs once again demolished Alma 53-38 to rack up their fourth region win without a loss. VB had to do it without last year all-region choice Joe- Fiay Jones.

Pointers upset in region tourney, undefeated in 4AAA round-robin. lContinued from Page 891 the Pointers needed a win to clinch a tie for the region lead. They got it as they romped over Subiaco 47-30. Freshman Ed Wornkey got a lot of playing time and responded with 15 points to pace the pack. Douglas and Jones added eight each. After a slow start, the Dogs got things together to take a 46-24 victory over Dragons from lVlountainburg. Postman Jimmy Kelley totaled 16 points to lead all scorers. Jones and Wornkey shared 20 points. In the final 4AAA conference game of the year, the Bird Dogs rolled over Greenwood 57-51 to finish with an un- blemished 6-0 conference mark. Three Pointers scored in double figures with Jones being high-point man at 18, followed by Wornkey with 17 and Kelly with 10. The first round of the region tourney proved no hassle for the Dogs as they toppled Alma 31-26 Feb. 23 at Greenwood. Jones was a one man wrecking team as he 2. .f pumped in 16 of the Dogs points. A desperation jumper at the buzzer dropped in the bucket and spelled defeat for the Pointers in the finals of the district tourney as Greenwood won, 47-45 at Greenwood. VB had built a 39-34 third quarter lead. The VB fans, part of the stand- ing room only crowd, were stunned by the numerous charging and walking calls tacked on to the Dogs in the final frame. Thus, the hometown Greenwood Bulldogs took the region crown.

The B-Team gained experience in 1977-78 and had many bright spots for the future Dogs. Some of these were Juniors Ricky Brown, Randy Scott, and sophomores Erell Goins, and Terry Schults. These four players will be needed greatly since the varsity team sports eight seniors. Other members of the B-Team that saw action was Brad Hall, Pat Cowden, Brad Perrier, and Mike Altes.

Effort 101 Pointer thinclcicls looks to another successful season New courts big h Ip for Pointer netters This years Pointer tennis team appeared extremely promising considering it was the first year for Van Buren High School to have fully equipped courts. The courts were constructed during the summer of 1977 summer. The construction consisted of eight courts which are fully lighted and can be used by the public as well as the tennis teams at the high school. In the past the tennis team used whatever courts were available in the city to use and some of these left alot to be desired. This years boys team is coached by Riley Whitsett and are extremely hopeful of a district crown although they have very little experience. The Pointer tennis squad is led by the talents of John Holland, Ronnie Key and Jeff Swearingen. Next years team could prove very awesome to foes as the only loss to gradua- tion will be to Key. The boys started working early by fac- ing the cold winter weather immediately after Christmas break. ,Q Letterman John Holland lRightl follows through as he returns the ball back over the net for the opponent to handle. labovel Senior Ronnie Key sends the ball flying to the other side.

The girls fought hard between them for a berth on the team, and no one member was completely safe as a challenge could quickly send them to the bottom. Coach Smith planned an invitational tournament for the boys and girls to be held at Van Buren. Teams invited were Northside, Southside, and Fayetteville. She also had planned nine matches each for the two teams. Cheryl Batchelor as the only returning letterman.

In the last three years, the Pointer golfers have con- jured three district championships and won third in the state finish. Coach Clair Bates directed a talented group of golfers consisting of seniors Joe- Ray Jones, Steve Barthol and juniors Chuck Hamilton and James Housley. All four of these players were returners from the previous team. lVlost of the leadership came from Jones, who was the 1977 District 2AA Medalist and State AA lVledalist runner-up. The team competes in four tournaments during the season. The Sallisaw Invitational, which the Dogs have won the past two years, the Hardscrabble, the District, and hopefully the State tourney.

They did, however, manage to capture fourth in the region by winning two matches at the district tourney held at Mena. The double elimination tourney saw Mena win it all as the VB gals won two of four games. This was the first year an all-region team was chosen, and one hometown volleyballer had the distinct honor of being named to this prestigious squad, Cheryl Batchelor. Each team in the region chose someone off the other seven teams to be on the region team, then the coaches chose four more and finally met to pick the Most Valuable player. The B-team finished 3-7. Playing much bigger schools was the main reason for the second-division records. .,.,,4 The Pointerette B-team: lfront rowl Sandra Wagnon, Denise Terry, Debbie Cooksey, Susan Moore, Lucy Kelley, and Candy McGovern. ltop rowl Manager Kim Smith, Manager Donnita Blount, Terri Hobbs, Joy Arnold, Coach Jeri Smith, Teresa Kelly, Delores Hopkins, Manager Theresa Picco, and Manager Millissa Holten.

The year started early for the girls as they attended the Shamrock cheerleading camp in Eufaula, Oklahoma last summer. And as usual, being from Van Buren, they won numerous awards, the award of excel- lence, the overall spirit award, a spirit stick, overall dorm awards, four excellent ribbon ratings in evaluation, and a super-star squad ribbon. Summer activities for money raising included a rummage sale, a fireworks stand, and a full days work at the Sonic in Van Buren in which they received half of the profits made. Cheerleaders also received money for a days work at the Whirlpool Fair by selling ads for the Booster Club. The girls stayed after school many hours to perfect the cheers and routines they used in pep assemblies and the ballgames. They performed at all Pointer football and basket- ball games in leading crowd enthusiasm and participation. Cheerleaders were selected by the Arkan- sas Tech Cheerleaders. They were graded on cheers and yells, participation, and gymnas- tics, They picked Jennifer Organ, who was voted head by the girls, Denise Gramlich, who was voted co-head, Lucy Kelly, Joann Craig, Joyce Essman, Pam Pilgram, Carla Poole, and Pam Tiffin, Sponsor is lVliss Julie lVletro.

Grace BarIow's term paper to lVlr. Gordon Yearty's "Newsweeks," English and social studies play a big part in the life of VBHS students. There have been changes made in the Language Arts department this year. Short story, folklore and mythology, and Spanish are all new. Because of heavy enrollment there was only one class of Journalism I. In Journalism ll there was an eight page issue printed bi- monthly, with three twelve page issues. For the second year Journalism Ill presented the students with the biggest yearbook published by Henington in Arkansas. Due to crowded conditions, lVlr. Randy Scarbrough U. S. history, geography and soci- ology teacher, was moved to the partitioned study hall room, 114. Another change in the English department was, grammar and literature were divided into semester courses. Previously they were combined as a full year course. The Language Arts students also received new text books this year. According to lVlr. Don lVlartin, U. S. history, sociology and government teacher, "The social studies department has been taking a more realistic approach of group social living in the last few years." lVlr. Gordon Yearty heads the social studies department, lVlrs. Grace Barlow, English. Encouragement 115 Students Excel in Math If a baseball player hits a baseball with a velocity of 40 feet per second, will it clear a fence 20 feet high, 400 feet away? If this problem is recognizable, you probably were in Mr. Ralph Hughes' physics class. Besides teaching physics, Mr. Hughes teaches pre-calculus, senior math, Algebra ll, and is sponsor of Mu Alpha Theta. Pre-cal is an advanced math course designed to prepare students for college math, which can become difficult. Only a small number of students here at VBHS take this course. ln Algebra ll they study mathematically related problems such as logarithms, probabilities, and tricky math problems. Mr. Hughes teaches one class of physics, a single class of pre-cal, which sported a total of 15 different students. He also had two classes of senior math, and one large Algebra ll class. Also teaching senior math was Mr. Henry Chotard. His classes reviewed the fundamentals of math, like percentages, decimals, fractions, base numbers, and many basic math concepts. He had two mathematics classes. Mrs. Elizabeth Matsler introduced the young sophomores to the world of angles, theorems, and the always popular proofs in her four periods of geometry. Sophomores took a big jump from the junior high algebra to the senior high geometry, and Mrs. Matsler had the job of adapting these students. ln addition to her geometry duties she had an Algebra I class. For a lot of these students in mathematics class there is one goal in mind, to make Mu Alpha Theta. This is an honor society of math students who have maintained a B average from ninth grade to second semester of their junior year. They are at this time inducted by Mr. Hughes, sponsor. One big assignment for Mu Alpha Theta is the National Math Test given to top math students in the school every year.

Encouragement 117 Fine Arts Maintain pride in achieving goals All in all, Van Buren's fine arts departments upheld pride in each goal they strived for. Stationery, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, carrying concerts, region and state contests are just a few of the things that choral music, drama, art, and band were kept busy with this year. lVlr. Dale Kesner's choral music took honors at region and state contests. ln between practices they sold stationery to help raise money for their new blue baby piano. lVlr. Ron Brammer's 64-member band marched its way to two first-division awards at the Russellville and Camden marching contests. They placed 45 people in the All-Region bands and several in the All-State band. In addition they played the annual Southern Band Directors Conference at Mississippi for 800 band directors in Hattiesburg. lVlrs. Evelyn Holleman's art students tramped through chemistry classes on their way to the darkroom to learn photography as an art. They were also introduced to wood carving, a new art form at VBHS. Students kept the office and halls bright and cheerful with the aid of paintings and posters. No auditorium, limited funds, and make-shift costumes were three of the troublesome things that lVlrs. Patricia Stiles' drama students dealt with. In December they presented A Christmas Carol to the student body in a special assembly the day before Christmas vacation.

The new tennis courts added to the 1977-78 physical education classes. Upon completion of the courts, tennis became a part of the classes. The courts located on Pointer Trail were built by the City of Van Buren under a federal grant. Other activities in the P. E. classes included basketball, softball, volleyball, gymnastics, dancing, ping-pong, exercising, soccer, and speedball. Thudding feet, bouncing balls, shouts of joy can be heard through the VBHS gym daily. Throughout each course the students are taught and practice the basic skills of the various activities. Excitement is the name of the game as everyone gets wound up in the action and skills like volleying, dribbling, and serving all become instincts. Unlike past years, students are now required to have at least one full credit of physical education. It may be obtained in either the sophomore, junior, or senior year. ,stimxwisss-1 , - A Junior Craig Hobson plays on the baby grand piano purchased Oct 31 by the music department th d b ll d Donna Fun lseatedil Richard Green, and Cathy Finney look on wi money raise y se ing stationery an by Season s Vibr Encouragement 120 ,X fs: 4, 'gs A Q F - .fi 4 X -is' . , Q K ijgk. s a ffQ7gg2, M M Chemistry is an interesting subject to Junior Eddie Smith as he observes chemicals through a flask.

Practical arts sew students' future Practical arts includes a wide range of the VBHS curriculum. Students make preparations for careers in the business world with such courses as typing, short- hand, and bookkeeping. Home economics classes teach boys and girls how to cook and sew while home and family living classes deal with family situations and problems. Distributive education offers students regular classes for part of the day while they also receive on-the-job training through local businesses. lVlrs. Joan Harper and lVlrs. Ola Rainwater teach the business subjects. This year the department bought 40 new IBIVI Selectric typewriters. They offered for the first time, a personal typing class. lVlrs.

Some classes are "mind-boggling" such as Algebra ll, physics, chemistry and geom- etry, while others are purely physical such as girls and boys athletics, choral music, band and typing. VBHS English took on a new dimension when it added enjoyable, one-semester courses including drama, American Litera- ture, creative writing, mythology and others. Students had an opportunity to "travel" in their minds with such classes as World affairs, Arkansas history, and government. After-school hours can be spent in many ways. Extracurricular activities, jobs, term- papers and homework fill many basketball, football and track work outs, marching for band, drill team prancing, working on school publications and choral music's practices all go together to complete a Pointer's left-over afternoon.

When a student does vvant to eat, because of super- visor Anna B.

The cooks also did some extra duty this year. They cooked the dinner for the annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet at which Governor David Pryor was guest speaker, and the Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year was Dr. Millard C. Edds. People who don't eat in the lunchroom usually eat in the concession stand. Naturally when everyone leaves, there's a big mess left behind. This year the VB school system hired Mr. Ed Pierce especially to clean up the gym and the concession stand after the games, assemblies, pep rallies, break, and lunch.

Homecomings, Mrs. Grace Barlow's term papers, ballgames, club meetings, sign making parties, prom, baccalaureate, senior banquet and the main goal of the 201 seniors walking to "Pomp and Circumstance" on Blakemore Field in May. Although sad in some ways, knowing it would be a last school event, Football Homecoming was a tremendous success as the Pointers slaughtered the third ranked Rogers Mountaineers, then going on to win the AAA state championship crown. Sixteen senior gridsmen, for the first time in 47 years, have the honor of graduating as a state championship player. Mark Douglas made a name for himself in football by winning, All-State, All-District, All-Region, Co-Running Back of the Year, Super-Team, and All-South, the second Van Buren player to ever win this last accomplishment. Lance Yerby also received All-Region, and All-State. Karla Rogers was named Miss Congeniality at the annual Miss Crawford County pageant. Melinda Stephens was third runner-up. Thirteen senior band members played at Hattiesburg, Miss. at a Band Directors Conference in February. The Pointer band was the only band in Arkansas to be invited. During summer vacation, the Class of '78 went to a local photo- grapher for senior portraits. They chose business suits and turtleneck sweaters for boys and girls respectively, to show distinction in their last school Pointer. Which college to attend will be the next decision most seniors will make. Whether the University, Tech, Vocational school or Westark the Class of '78 will always have a special feeling for the old alma mater and the green and white. Mark Adams.. . R. O. T. C. 1.

Al i K Enrollment 149 Juniors Juniors push for accomplishm nfs Pushing together for results, the juniors made this year one to remember. Enthusiasm has been the key to success for the "shining" class of '79. Juniors participated in each activity with high deter- mination. lt seems that the feeling of accomplishment sets this class on fire. Juniors took honors in many areas, but winning the respect of fellow students seemed to top it all off. In doing some heavy planning, for perhaps the flashiest prom ever, the class of '79 did just that. Class rings were another highlight of the year. Each junior placed his order early in the school year and waited together in anticipation for them to finally arrive months later. Proving to be the backbone of the class, the officers in '77-'78 were Debbie Khilling, president, Lucy Kelly, vice president: Carree Pendleton, secretaryg and Teresa Waldo, treasurer. Climbing from sophomores to middlemen, the class of '79 feel ready to take on the responsibilities of being seniors. The memories left behind, as they take the final steps toward the senior spotlight will be a reminder of all the efforts put into their growing together as more than just another class.

"Working after school has put a strain on my schoolwork, because my study time has been limited. Money is my main reason for vvorking, as for most high school stu- dents. Although this is true, my job has taught me the importance of a good or at least decent education. l've found that when you work for spending money, you won't find very much time to spend it in. When it comes dovvn to working or an education, remember that YOu'll have 50 or 60 years to vvork and just a few to get a needed education. Usually, a good-paying job depends on the type of education a person has gotten. An early start is important and will pay off in the long run. Planning ahead for something you're interested in may lead to a career in that field."

Going steady can always be fun. A person can make a lifetime friend. A person can even fall deep enough in love to make future plans. l'm sure that students consider it too serious a step.

Enrollment 171 gf X!! 91 ff S n.H'1Zf ff xx X., Lf -jf? z ENERGY Students trip through mciny activities As the doors of junior high open to start a new, exciting year, kids are running around in the locker bay, talking to friends that they haven't seen all summer, looking for their lockers, and being pushed around. The older kids are talking about the crazy jokes they're going to play on the new seventh graders. Then a startling sound of a bell goes off, and the big squeeze through the door starts. The new students are looking everywhere for their classes, and when they find them, they begin wondering if the teacher is nice or not. They usually find that teachers will treat the students as they themselves are treated. As the days go by, the newer kids start catching on to the things that go on at Van Buren Junior High. They learn that they get swats with a strap instead of a board. They learn not to talk in the library or to cut in the lunch line. If they do, they get the privilege of waiting until everyone else goes through the line. The Pups' being district champs made this year better than most others. The Pups didn't lose even one game in 1977-78. They were funny experiences, not just exciting ones. One of the funny experiences was when some- one put their tennis shoes on the heater in the girls' gym dressing room, causing the gym to fill with smoke. A bomb threat caused another funny experience. Students had to stand outside in the cold without the benefits of a coat for what seemed an hour. When students leave junior high, they will remember all the fun and exciting times, but they will also remember the teachers, friends, and, of course, the principal, lVlr. Yerby, who made VBJHS the best school of all in the minds of many. Karen Mitchell Denise Alexander and her lockermate rearrange and cleanaup their locker during lunch.

They work with every bit of energy they have to lead the Pup fan's cheers and make the game day just a little more special than other days. They put on special routines and do skits to make the pep rallies something to remember. They dressed up as midgets one day, and another day they threw a pie in Coach Quincy Coleman's face. They try to make each pep rally have something that the others do not. V Vllhat makes these cheerleaders special? They not only work school, but during the summer they attend a one week, Shamrock Cheerleading Camp, lt was held in Eufaula, Oklahoma this year. The VBJHS cheerleaders led their greatest cheers of all, when the Pointer Pups won the 4AAA championship with the win of their last game ofthe season.

The Pups opened workouts on Aug. 15 and worked hard for their opening game with Fayetteville Ramey on Sept. 8. The hard work payed off as the Pups defeated the Indians, 21-O. Sept. 15, Van Buren took on the Alma Airedale Pups at Alma. The game was a defensive struggle, but VB came away 13-0 for the win. Next, the Pups traveled to Russellville to face the VVhirlwinds. The Pups won the hard-fought battle 7-6 on a fourth-quarter touch- down. Sept. 29 the Pups played Fort Smith Darby at Blakemore Field. A tough defense and several deep punts by Eddie Wornkey kept the Rangers in check as the Pups won again, 14-0. The Pups played their final road game October 6 at Greenwood. Van Buren ran away with it, 21-0, for an important 4AAA victory. The lVlorrilton junior Devil Dogs came to town on Oct. 13. The Pups won, 14-7, but it took an interception by Tommy Knox to kill a late fourth-quarter drive by Nlorrilton. Oct. 20 was Parents' Night, and Van Buren whipped Subiaco, 23-O. In this game Mike Lopez became the first Van Buren Junior High player to kick a field goal. Van Buren played its final game of the season Oct. 27 at Blakemore Field against lVlena. Again the defense dominated the game as the Pups won 7-O on a touchdown pass by Stan Flenor. The Pups finished the season, 8-O, and they were the region 4AAA junior Champions. lVluch of the credit for the 1977-78 football championship goes to Coaches Ronnie lVlitchell, Ouincy Coleman, and lVlike King. Also, throughout the football season the VBJHS Pups were backed and supported by the fans, cheerleaders, pep club, and the student body. All of these people supported the Pups with such things as pep rallies, and signs, one of which said, "VVe love you team." -Mark Linam Energy 192 The Van Buren Pups rush through a sign prepared by cheerleaders and the Club before the Nlorrilton game, uf Van Buren Pups and Nlorrilton Devildogs clash in a tough match ending in anc Pup victory.

Energy 201 FHA portrays VBJHS's enthusiasm The Sweetheart Dance, Christmas carol- ing, parties, and many other activities are part of being a member ofthe Future Home- makers of America. FHA's two biggest projects of the year were the Sweetheart Dance and Family night. Family night was a potluck dinner where families came as a whole to be together. C. J. Franklin, the youth director of the First Baptist Church, was the guest speaker. The entertainment was the Treblettes from VBHS and the "Marvelous Midgets." The Sweetheart Dance involved many weeks of preparation. "The Funk Admin- istration" was chosen to perform. The master of ceremonies was Mr. Bill Pharis. At the beginning of the year, there was initiation week. At the end of the week the members and new officers were installed. The officers for 1977-78 were Francie Cook, Laurie Summerhill, Angie Brown, Angela James, Lori Ray, Robbie Bell, Sherri Hoyle, Leigh Breeden, Teresa Vanderwort, Tammy Faubus, and Donnetta Gooch. Every year one boy from VBJHS is chosen to be the FHA Beau. He is chosen for his citizenship, leadership, character, and participation in school activities. The FHA Beau was Mark Linam. Other activities of the year included the ice cream social, Christmas caroling, and sell- ing Stanley Products. At the ice cream social members had a lot of good ice cream, fun, and old-time music. During Christmas the members went caroling around the school and to such businesses as People's Warehouse Market and the Municipal Complex. Also, at Christmas, the FHA sponsored a Cookie Walk for the teachers. This was to help the teachers to have things on hand when guests arrived at their homes. As the money-making project, the members sold Stanley Products. This year a total of S4200 was sold. The FHA made a profit of 3840. The FHA sponsor is Mrs. Beverly Owens, Home Economics instructor. -Angela James- The Future Homemakers of America in 1977-78 were Sherri Hoyle, recreation officer: Donetta Gooch, song leader Laura Summerhill first vice president James, chaplain: Robbie Bell, secretary: Mark Linam, FHA Beau, Francie Cook, president: Cindie Brown, second vice president Leigh Breeden reporter Lo treasurer: Teresa Vandervolt, and parliamentarian: Row 2, Veronica Coleman, Stephanie Henry, Cindy Hayes Cindy Kendig Linda Fritts Becky Horton Vicki Sheila Ward, Michele Lambert, Kim Mossey, Gina Jones, and Lynne Workman, Row 3, Lucky O'Kelley Rhonda Key Suzette Krajeiski Patty Dyer Montgomery, Shana Maxey, Virginia Hopkins, Judy Johns, Vicki Hayes, Tian Beckham, Vicky Breeden, Debora Darter and Tammy Graves Row 4 Tommy Sheila Willis, Georgia Estes, Lisa King, Dianne Mallum, Leigh Ann Veneble, Lynn Zechiedrich, Mona Medlock Anna Halls Gail Mulasov and Peggv Corbell Row Robert Klomfas, Joy Williams, Terri Fow, Nita Wh'te C th I K U d ' ' i , a y rvan, aye n erwood, Lori Lynn Oliver, Denise Chadwell Gail Bush Jeannie Phillips and Wa Taylor, Back row, Angie Figley, Sherri Hopkins, Ed Worniky, Angie Roberts, and Sarah Gass. Energy 204 '78 FHA Court chosen Excitement rose as the FHA Sweetheart Dance was held lVlarch 18. The event was originally scheduled for Feb. 18, but due to snow and icy roads it was postponed. Preparation played a major part in making this a successful dance. FHA girls spent many hours planning the right decorations, choosing entertainment and refreshments. These were just a few responsibilities the girls had. The dance was held in the Junior High Cafeteria from 9200 p. m. to 12:00 midnight. "The Funk Administration" of Fort Smith provided music for the occasion. IVlembers of the Sweetheart Court were nominated by the Student Body and chosen on character, leadership in school, citizenship, and participation in school activities. Freshmen elected were Angie Brown, Francie Cook, Tammy Faubus, Linda Fritts, and Tammy Walters. Karen Stephens was elected to serve as eighth grade maid and Kathy Cluck seventh grade maid. The sweetheart candidates, the five freshmen girls, were then voted on by the student body and the girl who received the most votes was named queen. lVlaster of ceremonies for the coronation ceremony was lVlr. Bill Pharis. He introduced members ofthe court and their escorts. Then he announced the Runners-up and the Sweetheart. FHA beau Mark Linam crowned the Sweetheart. Angie Brown was escorted by Nathan Killogh, Francie Cook was escorted by Tommy Knox, Tammy Faubus was escorted by Stan Flenor, Linda Fritts was escorted by Mike Lopez, Tammy Vllalters was escorted by Steve Lunsford, Karen Stephens was escorted by Eddie Wornkey, and Kathy Cluck was escorted by Steve Bell. e 1978 junior high FHA Sweetheart Court consists of left to right freshmen Tammy Walters, Francie Cook, seventh grade maid Kathy Cluck, freshman Angie Brown eighth grade maid Karen Stephens freshman Tammy Faubus and Linda Fritts. Energy 205 Freshmen Seventh and eighth graders look up to freshmen in the same manner that juniors and sophomores look up to seniors. They realize that freshmen work hard to be freshmen and work hard to become sophomores also. After being,No. 1. at junior high for a year, becominga sopho- more seems to be an anti-climax, even though it is a grade higher. That's what makes being a freshman so special. They are the kings and queens of Van Buren Junior High School. At Van Buren a freshman has rights that he can't even dream of having in senior high as a sophomore. He has the run of the halls, the locker bay, the library, lunchroom, the office, and anything else he feels big enough to take over. lt's not only the tyranny of being a freshman but it is the special things school brings to the oldest, more experienced students also. He is the star of the football team or basketball team. She is the captain of the cheerleaders or majorettes. They are the officers of clubs and the best, friendliest in the school.

All the dreams of being looked up to by underclassmen, dreams of becoming the highest up are finally here. The class of '82 have worked long and hard for this title. Their hard times of being a middleman will soon be over. All the hard work and dedication will be paid off when they look back at their eighth grade year and proudly exclaim, "We did it, we're freshmen!"

Students enter Junior High with one of three attitudes: "l'll make it," "l'm scared," or "Oh, good." Whichever feeling he enters with the shy, quiet, seventh grader learns eventually to deal with almost all situations and learn so that the next year he will be a well-adjusted, pushy, loud, eighth grader. Then all the times of being scared, and all the butterflies become a part of yesterday, something to look back on and laugh at.

At the time of his death, Senator lVlcClellan was second in seniority in the Senate. John L. lVlcClellan was born in Sheridan, Arkansas on February 25, 1896. He was the son of Isaac and Belle lVlcClellan and was named for U. S. representative John Little. lVlcClelIan died only a week after announcing he would not run for re-election. He was first elected to the Senate in 1942. ln 1972 he became chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee in which he was able to determine how federal money would be spent. ln 1972, on the night of his Democratic primary victory over David H. Pryor, lVlcClellan received a congratulatory telephone call from President Richard lVl. Nixon. The senators main role for Arkansas is memorialized in the nam- ing ofthe lVlcClelIan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System. Other evidence of lVlcCleIlan's influence is seen in the continued operation of the three Veterans Administration hospitals, the Pine Bluff Arsenal, and the National Center for Toxicological Research. lVlcCIellan was admitted to the Arkansas Bar at the age of 17. He then practiced law with his father in Sheridan. At the age of 30 he was elected prosecuting attorney for the Seventh Judical district. President Jimmy Carter called lVlcClellan "a resolute and gifted lawmaker" who "persistentIy spoke out for a strong defense and upheld integrity in the operations of governments." Vice President Walter lVlondale called lVlcClellan "a friend, as well as a highly respected colleague, whose courage and integrity were beyond question." P I i' X' X ... 1 , N.. "Q-Q..

The town may not always realize this but the Van Buren Historical Society has worked hard to achieve recognition. A tour covering different historical sites of Van Buren was held in October. The society toured Bob Burns home which has been restored by volunteer workers. The Wilhauf home, built in 1837, which is located on Front Street and the Louis Bryan home on Fayetteville Street were also toured. The old Mount Olive Methodist Church on Knox Hill which is still in use today was toured and the Mike Meyer home was toured also. A brief history was given on each of the historical sites and many people from the town attended. it1i"' 3 .

Learning to manage your own income and thinking for yourself. Students in and around our community have their own sense of pride by holding employment with local merchants. Even though some students work for their families, they are still earning their own spending money. Students that work have a lot of major decisions to make. Working after school and on weekends takes away from many of the extracurricular activities, but with these students earning their own money they now realize the value of that money. Working gives students a chance to express themselves. They prove that they are capable of handling adult jobs and making adult decisions while still keeping up with school studies and activities. lVlost students don't have to' work. Why do they choose to work then? lVloney is usually the main reason. Students realize how expen- sive it can be for parents to continuously hand out money for clothes, gas, dates, and just "goofing off." lVlost will admit there is satisfaction in knowing that they are semi-independent. Pumping gas, waiting on tables, sitting behind a desk, and selling clothes all appeal to one teenager or another. Getting students interested in working isn't such a hard task. In our school system DE-D is offered so that students can study with a qualified teacher the values of business. ,. .,1. . .

Lyn 217 Index 293 Pointer Pride lingers Pointer pride is that undefinable quality that has permeated the student body over the years. Pointer pride is not young or old but ever-existing. It continues to grow, stronger and stronger. It can be large or complex. Pride was much involved in our amazement, joy, and celebration of our Pointer football team's capturing the AAA state championship. It was involved in the band's being invited to the twenty-second annual Southern Instrumental Conductors Conference at the University of Southern Mississippi. The Pointer Band was the first Arkansas band ever to be invited to this conference. Another sense of pride is the knowledge that senior Becky Noel gained the title of All-State as a choral music student. Recognition is involved with a feeling of pride as the 1977 Pointer was rated superior by the Arkansas High School Press Association. Pride can be small or less noticeable. lt can be as small as listen- ing to junior Tony Kendig sing a solo in the choral music Christmas program. Pride can be as simple as catching the first glimpse of Van Buren High School while driving on Pointer Trail and coming from the east or west. Students at VBHS feel a great sense of pride and satisfaction in knowing that and our town Van Buren is mushrooming borders on an wherever they go in the state or the area our school are known and immediately recognized and respected. in a unique situation for it is a small town, albeit a town, that retains its own identity even though it industrial, grc-wing city. Van Buren and Van Buren High School are the epitome of pride, quality, caring, giving of themselves, and a spirit of coopera- tion. x ,f K , T' Z has 54' ...J rw.: lk f School Board member C. J.

'rf QQ- wk Last July six journalism students attend- ed a publications workshop at Ouachita Baptist University where they studied under Col. Chuck Savedge, one of the foremost yearbook authorities. The 1978 Pointer was published by Henington Publishing Company in Wolfe City, Texas. The Pointer is a member of the Arkansas High School Press Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. Henington Publishing Company printed 1,150 copies on 80-pound special enamel paper. For body copy, 10-point Univers type was used, set one-point leaded. Cutlines are 8-point Univers solid. The index is set in 6-point Century, set solid. Headlines are in varying sizes of Spartan Bold and Spartan Bold Italic. This year the Pointer carried 16 pages of full color. Eight of these are in the opening section. The remaining eight are in the advertising section, the first time ever that Pointer Pride 296 color has been covered in the ads. Throughout the year the Pointer staff sought the help of other journalism students, teachers, and others. We deeply appreciate all help given to us.
