Students of Van Buren High School
possess a certain quality that no other school
even comes close to matching. 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
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

Students take time out for leisure
"A Time for Keeping" was the foot-
ball homecoming theme of 1977. 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
Time also plays an important role in
lunch hours, breaks, and the after school
rehearsals for the different organizations at
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
When all adjustments are made, and
preparations planned, students need a little
Time out for themselves.

Chants, sign-making, parade help
Enthusiastic yells, busy-body student, and sign-
making parties were common sights in 1977-'78, Stu-
dents had much to support as the Pointers represented
the 4-AAA conference in the state play-offs.
Homecoming, too, was "high-spirited" while the
Pointers surprised the high-ranked Rogers Mountaineers

Van Buren High School students enjoyed the nine-day vacation they
received, compliments of lVlr. Weather during January and February.
The students got out first for snow at 1:00 on a Wednesday afternoon
and for several days stayed home and drank hot chocolate, played cards
and built snovvmen. The students were required to make up eight of the
nine days as they were allotted one snow day for 1977-78. Some of the
make up days were scheduled on Saturdays and some of them during
the pre-scheduled spring break.
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. Van Buren students attended school through three of their
five days during spring break, due to an unexpected snowfall in January and

Busy, busy, busy seems to echo through the air as the eight

absences while Mrs. Ann Telaar and Mr. James Flenor rush to sign
tardy and absentee slips. Selling supplies to those "last minute"
minds is also a duty for office workers.

POINTER BAND LOSES 13
1977-78 flag corps gets worm welcome
The Pointer band also showed their pride by represent-
ing Van Buren in all but two games of the regular season
and all but one play-off game. For half-time shows, they
started practicing in mid-August.
Van Buren once again attended two marching contests.
The first was the Russellville halftime-show contest. They
received a superior rating, the first step toward the coveted
Sweepstakes Award, given to bands that make a first
division in all region sponsored contests. The Camden
Invitation Contest was nextg the band responded with
another superior rating against much stiffer competition.
This was the first year for the new show band type drill
incorporated by band director Ron Brammer. This show
featured percussionists and the new flag corps.
The flag corps was another first for the Van Buren
High School Band. Mr. Steve Workman, the new assistant
director, was in charge of organizing and choosing the
corps. It consisted of eight band members. He also
patterned the flag drills to fit the band drills.
Mr. Workman in cooperation with Mrs. Linda Gant,
librarian, purchased films to help with next years drills.
Eight girls were chosen as majorettes with Charles
Curry leading as drum major. These nine band members
carried the responsibility of leading the band, and a lot of

years has brought back many illustrious awards. This
true once again in 1977-78.
The band received an added honor in 1977-78
receiving "best in class" at the Six Flags over Georgia
test last May. They were invited to perform at the twf
second annual Southern Instrumental Conductors Col
ence at the University of Southern Mississippi
Hattiesburg, Miss. Van Buren, one of six bands chosen l
the midwest and southern states to perform a 45-mi
concert, was the only one from Arkansas.
The week before leaving for Mississippi the band gave
preview performance for the public in the senior high 4
The following Wednesday the band left for Hattiesbur
play on Feb. 10 for interested junior high, senior high
college students and 500 instrumental music teachers.

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
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

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.
Senior Andy Scott said, "A lot of new friends were
made, a lot of good memories are left."

ecin Green rumbles to state AAA title
When the 1977 football season ended,
e Pointers had a 9-2-1 record, the AAA
tle, and the number eight ranking statewide.
lt was the first time that a Van Buren
otball squad won a state championship
ince the 12-0 Pointers were official champs
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
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.
BENTONVILLE-The Bird Dogs con-
tinued to blow the opposition out of the
stadium by billowing to a 21-12 success at
Bentonville. Romping for 137 yards and
three touchdowns Douglas continued to be

Cone, Bates lead Bird Dog charges
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-
One of the most successful coaches in
Arkansas High School basketball history is
our very own Clair Bates. While a head coach
at Van Buren, Bates, has achieved of some
seven overall state championships, six girls'
and one boys' championship.

got a lot of playing time and responded
with 15 points to pace the pack. Douglas
and Jones added eight each.

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
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

double figures as seven seniors saw their last

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.

over the net for the opponent to handle. labovel Senior Ronnie Key sends

Swinging on and on into the most
successful athletic program in the past few
years, the 1978 Pointer golfers had high
hopes of another promising season. 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,

English exhibits new courses
From lVlrs. 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

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
Mrs. Elizabeth Matsler introduced the young sophomores to the

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

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.
After school paste-up at the Courier finds junior journalists Ronald Flanagan and Pam Key busy as they

New courts "serve" phys e
Flying yellow balls and swinging tennis
racquets were no more uncommon for
VBHS than hearing "How's your backhand?"
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
Excitement is the name of the game as
everyone gets wound up in the action and

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.

Practical arts sew
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
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. Hazel Rogers teaches

This year lVlrs. Pat Webb counseled full time at VBHS. She formerly divided
er time between junior andsenior highs. lVlrs. Webb and IVlr. Rockwell were the
uiding forces in many students' decisions. They helped with planning schedules,

A day in the life of a Pointer
. . . begins every morning, Monday through
Friday, at 8:00 a. m. with drowsy eyelids,
many yawns, and a very few alert minds.
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
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

Cooking and cleaning keep
students healthy and happy
Although not all VBHS students eat in the lunch-
room every day, most go in the lunchroom novv and
then. When a student does vvant to eat, because of super-
visor Anna B. Stephens, manager Mary Mitchell, Mildred
Faulkenberry, Edwina Scarborough, Cecelia Thorman,
Pauline Brown, and Frankie Hopwood he can depend on
a hot lunch. 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.
To clean up the courtyards, locker areas and bath-
rooms we have our old dependable Ace and Jane V BV'

Seniors earn superior honors
As the doors of school once more open in August the seniors of
'78 walk through the open courtyard of VBHS, knowing each
activity they participate in will be their last. 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,
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.

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
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
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.

Juniors express individual opinion
Junior Eddie Smith, a chemistry student,
discusses holding dovvn a job while in high
"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."

"To me, going steady is a type of
commitment. I personally feel that going
steady can be good and bad. Most of the
time you are the deciding factor. l think
that maturity plays a big part in it. 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. However, it could be
that some people just haven't been lucky
enough to find 'Mr. or Miss Right' just
yet. Whatever the case may be, I respect
anyone's honest beliefs."

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
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.
Denise Alexander and her lockermate rearrange and
cleanaup their locker during lunch.

Cheerleaders boost pup pirit
After hours and hours of practice, hours
of leading pep rallies, and after waiting a
whole week for a game, the cheerleaders at
Van Buren Junior High lose no enthusiasm.
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
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.

Pups remain unbeaten
The Van Buren Pups became the fourth team in VBJHS history
to go undefeated and untied. 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,
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-
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."

FHA's two biggest projects of the year
were the Sweetheart Dance and Family

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
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

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
"The Funk Administration" of Fort Smith provided music for the

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

Rookies show strength
Loud bells, flights of stairs, long lunch lines, harder classes, and
large buildings are some of the things that a seventh grader has to
cope with and adjust to in Van Buren Junior High School.
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.

McClellan remembered for Deeds
Elected to office in 1934, Senator John L. lVlcClellan grew into
one of the most trusted politicians. 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
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."

Van Buren is full of history. The town may not always realize
this but the Van Buren Historical Society has worked hard to
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.

Junior Paul Gibson "totes the heavy load" at his after-school job.
Sfudenfs fill labor demands
Showing a sense of responsibility. 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.

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
