seniors anticipated graduation night
when they could accept their hard

that older, envied friends and
relatives had in the past.

the year, underclassmen moved up to
occupy positions formerly held by
older students they thought "had it
made", rarely realizing that those
they were replacing might regret

"To me, summer was just
another job with no pay!"
Bare skinned, beautiful bronze
bodies having "fun in the sun" the
entire summer rarely held true as
most students either earned money
through jobs or gained experience in
school-oriented events at summer
camps, none all fun and games.
"I spent most of my time outside in
the heat on our farm," Junior Mike
McClure sighed. "It really took a lot of
hard work, but made the time for
pleasure a lot more enjoyable."

20 more hours a week at my job than
what I was used to while school was
still inf, Senior Steve Croff admitted.
"But it didn't seem that much
different because I still had plenty of
time after work to cruise around town
or sit out on our cars."
But students didn't find all free time
outside of jobs open for sheer
pleasure. School-related activities in-
cluding football, PT's and two-a-days,
drill team and cheerleading camps
and morning practice, publications
ad selling and workshops, boys' and
girls' state, governors school, student
council conventions and band camp
and marching drills all required extra
"We practiced at the school around
six a.m. in order to get ready for
competition with other squads at four-
day camps," Sophomore Cheerleader
Claire Mayville revealed.
Three solid months of total relaxa-
tion sounded inviting, but most
students found summer vacation
anything but "fun in the sun."

REFLECTIONS. Looking in their side

to school later than them while cruising

EYES HAVE IT
"I'd go crazy without them,
and so would my hair!"
There's 18 in the gym, I0 in the
bathrooms, six in the fieldhouse, one
each in COE and J ROTC. In despera-
tion, even the trophy case in the
concession area served as a substitute
for an obsession totalling 36 scattered
throughout the school: mirrors!

nervous if I can't find a mirror,"
Junior Lisa Dye jokingly conceded.
'Tm in front of one at least a dozen
times a day wondering ifI look okay."
Though society depended on
mirrors during activities including
driving, grooming and ofcourse shop-
ping, times arose when the big reflec-
tions were avoided.
"I do my best to avoid mirrors on
any day that I donit feel so greatf'
Junior Jane McHattie stated. "My
face may look pale and sickly, and
seeing myself like that just makes me
feel that much worsef'
While some students avoided
mirrors in fear of their own looks,
most either 'worshipped' or worked
towards correcting their own
appearance every day in front of the
almost unavoidable reflective
CHOW ' DO
"Around here you have two
choices: starve or diet!"
Choose the lesser of three evils:
cafeteria food, concession stand
snacks or "brown bagging" it from
home. Students faced what many con-
sidered a dilemma in the search of
appetite quenchers within the con-
fines of closed campus.
"Who wants to get elbowed to death
in the concession area? It's too crowd-
ed in there!" Senior Vasana Sayarath
complained. "Besides, I think the food

Numerous students worried
countless hours during similar

Those few students who
mastered the art of balancing
their time between schoolwork
and playtime learned early that
the key to it all, compromising,
gave better results in the end.
"I think most kids' problem is
that they don't concentrate and
devote themselves fully to the
task at hand," Junior Tandy

The "key to success" in almost
any situation has always re-
quired a lot of hard work and
determination. Most classes
stressed similar requirements,
only the abstract term "key"
took on new meaning as concrete
"keys", either pushed with a
fmger, read from a music book or
turned to start a car all stressed
primary importance in the func-
tion of a class.
"I can't do without my
calculator in Accounting class,"
Junior Shelly Bathurst revealed.
In one particularly nerve rack-
ing class, students had their
hands full of "buttons to push".

keys in Typing I and II required

closed Senior Tina Rester. 'fTwo

Also a class many considered
enjoyable, the new Data Process-

chance to "make or break" the
amount of fun in the class while
working on a totally new "set of
keys" on computers.

"Oh no! What am I ever going
to do? I've gotta do a report in
D.E. on my future career! Who in
the world ever plans their career
this early in life?"
Almost everybody secretly
feared the thought of entering
the grown-up world of college or
a career and completely
providing for himself. Some
students found themselves for-
tunate by being enrolled in skill-
oriented courses designed to give
students a head start on future
careers by promoting good
business practices while
providing community service.
"Welding class is a way of
helping me learn a trade for a
part-time job," Junior David
Rogers explained. "But because
we deal with people outside in
the community in there, it gives
a lot of helpful insight into the
politics of dealing with people."
Vocational classes including
auto mechanics and welding
offered many the chance for self-
preparation for future jobs.
"I enrolled in auto mechanics

involved much more than get-

childhood pastimes were discard-

students never out-grew a favorite
hangout, the Van Buren Boy's
"l've been a member of the Boyis
Club ever since my early years in
grade school," Senior Andy John-
son explained. "Now with my
mother working there as a
secretary, it's even easier to go
there to practice my basketball, or
to play for the Courier baseball
team in the summer."
Spring, summer, fall and winter-
the Boyls Club offered members
seasonal sports year-round as an
escape from the old "nothin, to do
in this town" gripe.
"I remember when my friends
and I would all load up in the car
after school and spend the after-
noon at the Boy's Club playing
basketball," Senior John Dunn
recalled. "In the months of
January and February it was about
the only thing to do since it was
cold and there was soggy snow all
over the ground."
Those interested in playing
sports weren't the only ones with
something to gain from the Boy's

baseball, soccer, tennis, and even
archery and indoor games in-

billiards and video games kept

side of athletics, the spectators,
had their share of activities.
"I don't go to the Boy's Club to

to visit and never out-grow the Van

t'The response was very good this
year," Student Council sponsor
Mrs. Linda Gant remarked. "Outof
sixty-seven attempts, sixty-one
pints of blood were drawn.
Other volunteer programs also
brought pain-in the form of long
hours of hard work. The King

organization of actors, employed
several students into the produc-

"I had to work pretty late on
several school nights each week at

As one of the top dog supporters
for Pointer and Pointerette football
and basketball in the community,
local radio station KTCS proved
extremely helpful to fans in the
community and school, in addition
to the entire athletic department
through its live broadcasts of all
games, in town or out.
"I really appreciate being able to
catch all of the Pointer games on
the radio," Junior Roger Green
remarked. "I never have to worry
about missing a game, even ifit's
over a hundred miles away."
Following the Van Buren
athletic teams all across the state,
KTCS broadcasted all football and
basketball games in their entirety
to hundreds of eager fans at homef
giving tremendous support to the
teams by building an audiencee t
"It's really helpful for the team to
know that they have fans at home
interested in the gamef, Basketball
Coach Quince Coleman explaimed.
"I think they play better that way."l
While supporting the team direct-
ly by giving it a larger audience,

KTCS proved itself 'Atop dog" for

Junior Diana Mayes claimed.
"There's not a better place in town

turned to the community-supported
"The public library is the only
