Ordering graduation an- nouncements for their graduation proved one more occasion for Seniors to realize their high school days were nearly over. HASBEENS. Past graduates of the class of '81, Teresa Vandervort and Aaron Lynn congratulate each other upon the ending of12 years ofschool, a dream come true for 216 seniors of the class of 1982. CLEAN-UP CREW.

V peful hasbeens STEPPI ' UP Hopeful "I knew it was over when I ordered announcements." hasbeen After 12 long years of school, seniors anticipated graduation night when they could accept their hard earned diplomas in the same fashion that older, envied friends and relatives had in the past. In similar situations throughout 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 "growing olderi' and giving up their places. 'Tm proud that I made it to West Point, but being isolated from all my friends until Christmas made me realize how much I miss high school life," '81 graduate Greg Young related. Patiently waiting for the day when they could leave school "forever', yet knowing theyid later miss it, students Hfinallyl' ordered and measured for class rings, caps and gowns and graduation announcements and made all preparations for Prom, Senior Banquet and commencement, all of which they had earlier con- sidered big events for glooked-up to, upperclassmen. "Last year the Seniors looked like big-shots because the Juniors did everything on the Prom for themg now it's our turn!" Senior Teri Thomas reminded. 73.

Summer "To me, summer was just another job with no pay!" bummers 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." While a fortunate few stayed home UNDER THE ARCH. Senior Boy's State Delegate Jeff Stephens checks over the State Capitol grounds from his birds-eye view. WATCHFUL EYES. Senior Diane Chamness keeps a watch on swimmers at the city park pool where she lifeguarded as a summer job. er bummers for work, most students ventured out into the community to find summer jobs or work extra hours at ones already existing. "During the summer I put in about 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 time-without pay. "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." V A INEC. .

Looking in their side mirrors students could check out who got to school later than them while cruising the lot for a good spot to park. EYES HAVE IT Doubl "I'd go crazy without them, and so would my hair!" takes 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! "They're great! Where else can someone go and see his favorite per- son live?!" Junior Chase Carter laughed. Either a question of vanity or pride, EYE SEE. Junior Donna Young breaks out her pocket mirror at the end of typing class to check her face and touch up her eye makeup. multiple times daily, most students stared at themselves, checking that every hair is in place or touching up make-up, such reasons created oc- casions in which a mirror became an "absolute necessity". "I swear that I start getting really 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 obsessions. S...d...l.3 CHOW ' DO Hunger "Around here you have two choices: starve or diet!" strikes 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 CHOWTIME. Junior Sandi Marchbanks "pigs out" on a delicious tostado from her favorite fast food Mexican restaurant, the Taco Hut. MOUTHFUL. Shoveling it in, Sophomore Michelle Clark enjoys a hot lunch in the school cafeteria instead of the usual junk food from the concession stand. ' ll er strikes in the school cafeteria is pretty goodf' Seventy-cent cafeteria meals receiv- ed both praise and complaints from the student body with only half the school population eating daily, accor- ding to cafeteria workers. Many more students chose the association with fellow students and expensive junk food in the student council-sponsored concession area. "It's a lot more convenient and quicker to eat in the concession stand," Sophomore Ricky Thorman expressed. 'tl can enjoy talking to all my friends, and it's pretty easy to affordf, Though students paid the price for concession stand snacks, other prices turned the relinquish ofhunger pangs into pains for the billfold, especially when students managed to obtain Hmunchiesn from local fast food joints. "I can either bring my own lunch from home, or sneak off-campus to McDonald's," Sophomore William Cox confessed. "Of course if l was to do it every day, it would cost me about 15 bucks a week."

When preppies donned their loafers, pink and green Izods, argyle socks and 'fnot a hair out of placey' looks, they most often resembled manequins straight out of the Boston Store. VVhether in harmony with the fads of fashion, out to impress their peers or just because it was "their stylen, students joined to stage a "prep ral- ly".

When the "new fad" of blue jeans and cowboy snap shirts cornered the fashion market, it caused no real dramatic change in the local look. "I grew up on the farm, so I've always worn boots, jeans, flannel shirts and my cowboy hat. It's a natural," Senior Mitzi LaRue voiced, echoing the sentiments of many students whose real style has been "country" even when "country wasn't cool." Without purchasing a single new piece of clothing, students miraculously transformed from "country hicks" into "urban cowboys and girls." "I love the western look and always have, it's comfortable and gives a neat, clean appearancef, Senior Scott McBrayer said. Differences between the urban and the real cowboy surfaced in the "ring around the pocket" from tobacco cans and the frayed ends of the boot style cut. And disadvantages have resulted from the fad.

But after elections voters seldom recognized the quiet, continuing activities the Student Council and Class Officers carefully in- itiated adding to the variety of student life. 'SC 'Class leaders OLITICIA "Contributing personal time is the biggest way in which the Student Council can get things done to benefit the students," Vice Principal James Flenor commented. As the Student Council worked on the summer con- vention in Little Rock, class officers carried on the tradition of candy sales as money-making projects. However, the major portion of action relied not on the leaders, but the support of their constituents. "We can't do anything without the support of the class members behind us," Junior Class President Tammy Canady informed. In positive contrast to the theory that elected student officers serve their voters, teachers were offered a chance at profiting from student activities. Though not always out in the open, the Student Coun- cil and class officers con- tinued serving the student body, school and communi- tv through elected officers and delegates. ROOM TO DANCE.

I've got two tests to study for, homework in three classes and we're play- ing Alma tonight. How am I ever going to get everything done?',... Numerous students worried countless hours during similar situations throughout the year. With heaps of school books com- peting for attention with any number of leisure activities or jobs, students rarely mastered their schedules to squeeze in all pre-planned activities. 'Tm always switching back and forth between my studies and goofing offf' Junior Jim Center admitted. "One day I'll take home two or three books and get all my school done and then l'll turn around the next day and blow off homework and try to finish it in study hall. Luckily it all balances out in the end and I pass!" 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 Tucker theorized.

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". Controlling a typewriter full of keys in Typing I and II required intense concentration on the learner's part. Remembering where one's keys are also became a first priority to members of the band. Those on their instruments and in the music they read had to know by heart for quality perfor- mance. and, of course, driver s ed, students get M- .,,,,.:., . --ffeaffesff -1- 5 . - H . - ,,,, .FWWS-W '11 heir own set of keys For some students, a knowledge of different keys never even crossed the mind.

"Driver's Ed has got to be the most fun class in schoolf' dis- closed Senior Tina Rester. 'fTwo days out of the week when we drive we go just about anywhere we want to!" Also a class many considered enjoyable, the new Data Process- ing course offered students the chance to "make or break" the amount of fun in the class while working on a totally new "set of keys" on computers. "Because of all the new stuff that we'Ve never even seen or heard about before, Data Processing has the potential to be a real entertaining class, Junior Michelle Wait reported. IN THE KEY OF C.

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 f-:fh--- or Mr. Goocljob because I like working on cars and there was a lot of things I didn't know that I've learned in there," Sophomore Robert Wood offered. "There's equipment over there that I didn't know how to use, but now I have the oppor- tunity to learn how." Students not enrolled in courses that let them out of school early to go out on the job afterwards voiced envy. But ac- cording to the COE and Dis- tributive Education students, it involved much more than get- ting out of school early and "goofing-off." "I enrolled in COE because I'm going to college and this will prepare me for a job so that Ican save some money for school. One of the many benefits is that I'm learning skills that I use on my jobf' Senior Donna Bean main- tained. "We've learned how to handle real office situations. The only disadvantage is that Idon't get to go home and rest after school." INVENTORY COUNT.

With a wide range of classes both "brain-racking" or "blow off, available, students found it easy to take the more convenient road when choosing courses at the beginning of the year to complete their schedules. But many found such simple courses non-challenging and opted for more advanced yet educational- ly rewarding courses. NI believe that grammar is probably the most important course a person can take, " English Instructor Mr. James Faught expressed. "It is needed to be able to communicate with 3 "IT'S REAL EASY!"

Many regular solid subjects like English, history or the ad- vanced math courses, though not always considered impor- tant by many, founded the basis of a good educational background. Most careers re- quiring a college education de- mand a background in such high school courses. Students dis- covered the need for quite abitof responsibility to gain from these classes. 'Tye found myself up until midnight trying to figure out geometry problemsf' Sophomore Bobby Swaim noted. L'It takes a lot of self-discipline for me to keep from putting it aside and going to bedf, However many students dodg- ed such courses because of the time and self-discipline needed to pass them.

You've got all those easy elective classes like journalism and ROTC. Everybody knows you don't do any work in those classesf, Most students tend to take the "'easy" elective courses offering the least amount of work and worry possible. However with self-satisfaction and ac- complishment in mind, many students stepped into elective courses that tested their patience and ability to withhold their standings in solid subjects through strenuous skills and responsibilities. "Publications can take a lot of hard work and time," Junior Lynn Williams contemplated. "It teaches a source of pride seeing all your searching and work laid out for all to view, proving a worthy causef' "Art can set a relaxing mood, but to really benefit from self- satisfaction you have to do the best possible," Senior Donald Glass maintained. Demanding elective classes not only helped students learn the basics of self-discipline, which often seemed impossible, but also helped in pursuing careers by taking these preparatory subjects. "There are times while I'm standing at attention that I wonder why I'm out braving the bitter cold weather instead of sitting in study hall," Senior Bill Westfall acknowledged. "But when I remember that ROTC is preparing me for a great career, the doubt leaves my mind." Other courses also helped prepare students for specific careers. Foreign language courses provided students with backgrounds for social or overseas work, while chemistry gave students the basics for varied careers. WAR PAINT?

"I did, you dummy! Where else in school would they hold something like that?"... Available for everything from A to Z, students used the school library for more than its assum- ed role as a resource center, it could actually be called an all- purpose resort. 'SA majority of our students do in fact use the library as a resource center, but I think more actually use it for club pur- posesf' Librarian Mrs. Linda Grant pointed out. "I think the reasoning behind everything with school going on in here is because of the library's central location on campusf' Though the conflict between clubs' use of the library and students' use resulted in the library being closed while meetings took place, the library continued to house many 'n' ain't easy he livin' ain't easy organizations' interests.

Also away from its traditional purpose, students used the library as a 'social gathering location, especially during the cold seasons when the school's open courtyard architecture offered no other place for warmth.

Putting inatotal of6,647 ' hours, they were hired to do what they loved best, paint pictures and this time depicting historical Van Buren and Crawford County on an old Civil War river wall.

Depicting such scenes as the state bird, flower and flag, the one hundred foot concrete wall became a preserver of Arkansas heritage. "I painted an old car and a Stagecoach by myself, It was fun to paintall of the different aspects of our history," Mark Haas bragged. Located at the Mike Meyer City Park, the historical mural, made possible through a grant from the "Youth Community Conservation Improvement Project," also receiv- ed donations from the local Women's League as well as the Van Buren City Council, who provided the paint.

Grade school provided the basics of educations in the primary '4 Ris all administered by that person who became Well known by the end ofnine months of constant pampering- the grade school teacher. "My second grade teacher was something else,', Senior Tammy Myers disclosed. "She was very young and had this super ability to act out different characters' parts while reading stories to us. But what was really neat was that not only did she make it pretty challenging to us little second graders, but she also spent a whole lot of time with us before Christmas in preparation of a play." Most students remember mainly all the easy, fun aspects of grade school. Elementary teachers almost always came through with plenty ofplayground gamesduring recess or fun activities inside the classroom. "We had one really big teacher who went out and played football with us," Junior Terry Watts laughed.

A majority of students remember having a favorite grade school teacher that stood out above the rest. However in some instances the reasons proved unworthy. "My fourth grade teacher was pretty cool,', Senior Lindsey Actkinson laughed. "He never assigned us homework at all, and he had a bad habit of falling asleep in class, allowing us to do what we wanted!" Memorable events filled the days of grade school for students. With one teacher administering all education in all different subjects for the whole year, most students couldn't help but dwell on their old elementary teachers when reminiscing the fun and frolic associated with those very first days of school.

There's plenty to dog we could go skating or play tennis or electronic games or grab a burger or..." The old complaint about Van Buren not having any attractions offering entertainment used to hold much truth. Students and all members of the community either drove to neighboring towns for any fun or tried unsuccessfully to find satisfaction in an "old as the hills" movie theatre showing outdated movies or going out to eat at several inexpensive drive-ins or cafe's. "I remember back in grade school when the big thing on Fri- day nights was to go skating at the old Pointer Roller Rink that had torn-up wooden floors," Senior Carla Coker reminisced. "It was either that or go see old Walt Dis- ney movies at the musty Bob Burns Theatre."

"But to see the huge crowds of people who flocked to our McDonald's the day it opened, you'd think everyone considered it the greatest thing that had ever happened!" Other introductions brought citizens locations for more sportive activities. Municipal lighted tennis courts, the new Skateworld roller rink, Lee Creek Park adding a boat dock and picnic tables along the Arkansas River, plus two 7-11's housing electronic games gave students many choices of enter- tainment. Main Street in downtown brought efforts to renovate all storefronts on the street to their original state, complete with simulation old-timey gas lights. "I guess all the work paid off,', Junior Lisa Dye speculated. "They attracted a major movie studio so much they filmed a civil war movie here."

"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."

Though a full range of out- door sports including football, baseball, soccer, tennis, and even archery and indoor games in- cluding baseball, ping pong, billiards and video games kept members busily occupied, the other side of athletics, the spectators, had their share of activities. "I don't go to the Boy's Club to get involved in the games, ljust go to watch," Sophomore Claire Mayville claimed. "What I don't like is having to pay admission to see themf, g Those visiting the Boy's Club might have wondered if they were in the right building upon first entrance. Because Van Buren lack- ed a Girlis Club, the "boy,s clubl' opened its doors to both boys and girls alike. Naturally with both boys and girls being present, some made a visit to the Boyis Club forjust one reason-the presence of the opposite sex.

Whether to see members of the opposite sex, play a wide variety of indoor and outdoor games all season or simply to sit in the stands as a spectator, students continued to visit and never out-grow the Van Buren Boyis Club.
