In Loving Memor
Tom Foraker was horn on a farm in Lamar, Mo. He
graduated from the high school there. He received his B.S.
in Ed. from UMC in 1940. His first teaching assignment was
at the Hickman Mills School on Grandview Road. After
four and a half months there, he became principal at
Center High School until 1959. Before becoming principal,
he was an off-campus instructor at CMSU for three years.
In 1959, he hecame the superintendent of the Hickman
Mills School District. He belonged to the Missouri State
Teacher Association of School Administrators. Few people
knew that the gentle, happy educator, who led the school
district through so many of its most difficult years, was a
hero of WW 11. Mr. Tom Foraker died on May 29, 1976
after suffering a severe heart attack. His accomplishments
and devotion to the education of students will be long

n ye or the Future
Last year, Marjorie Langford completed thirty-two years
of service at Ruskin. She has the longest tenure of any
employee in CSD ffl and has worked in four of the five
Ruskin buildings. Before becoming a counselor in 1959,
she was a social studies teacher and librarian. Mrs.
Langford believes a change she's seen is "the students are
more liberal in thinking and are more independent." Her
happiest moments are whenever we "win" whether it's a
football game, or the receipt of a scholarship.
Mr. Hoskins, counselor since 1962, has seen a change in
the administration. "They have become more modernized
in their attitudes. They recognize the needs of the students
more by giving them activity periods and selection of most

students and their parents with information concerning
over sixty United States Colleges and Universities. Students

Credit should be given where credit is due. For instance,
to presidents and actors and to our library ladies too. The
reason behind this is those wonderful women who deserve
recognition for what they do. These librarians were always
there to aid in any way that they could. Even if they didn't
have the information there, which was a rare occurrence,
they would give you a place to go to get the information.
These women spent many hours before and after school
preparing bulletin boards and materials for the students.
They were not forced to do this, but did this because they
wanted to help. The librarians have built up the library as
an excellent resource center, and they will continue to per-
form their essential daily tasks.
Because of Ruskin's 75th anniversary, the library made
the most of the celebration by picking days of the year at
random to give students and teachers birthdays presents.
The presents included candy, cookies, cupcakes, fruit and
paperback books. The library has a lot more to offer than
books, it also offers fun and spirit.

From Pros to Prose . .
Landmark restorers, volleyball coaches, ex-baseball
pros, and former cheerleaders hardly fit the
stereotype of the straight-laced schoolmarm with
severely backcombed hair and ankle-length dresses.
But '76-977 lent itself more to candidness, short bobs,
and calf-length skirts. American English teachers
have become no longer teachers of English, threaten-
ing a crack across the knuckles, but teachers of
MAmerican," whose lifestyles are as varied as the sub-
jects they teach.
Miss Priscilla Belden, a Ruskin veteran of thirteen
years, has exemplified this trend in teaching.
Although her interests range from playing tennis to
reading the classics, her biggest project has been the
rebuilding of her grandfatheris Michigan home
originally built in 1912.
Several of her colleagues are great lovers of the
arts. Mrs. Mary Ann Crawford is a faithful patron of
the Kansas City Lyric Theatre and Miss Benny Searcy
enjoys relaxing to Beethoven, while Miss Susan Rose
is fond of old movies, especially the musicals.
Other members of the department share athletic in-
terests. Mr. Gary Abram was a Pittsburgh Pirate
before coaching the volleyball team with Mrs. Jean
Gelsinger. And cheering them on to victory might
well be our former spirit leaders, Miss Lesley Easter-
day and Miss Mary Haney.
Mr. Abram, this is your life.

Scxcn math courses make up the small, but dynamic
mathematics department. Classes ranged from Introduction to
Algebra, taught by Mr. James Lloyd, to Mr. Ernest Hester's in-
comparable and competitive Math Analysis class. Mr. Hester
doubled as a physics instructor as well. The department was
rounded out by Mr. Madison Hayman, Mr. Larry Gunther, and
Mr. Max Hoskin. The math department will continue to offer
challenging curricula for the competitive student.
Congratulations to Mr. Maupin for completing his twenty-first
year of teaching. Mr. Maupin felt that during his first year of
teaching at Ruskin, "the students knew each other better and
were friendlier towards one another." Mr. Allen, Mr. Chism and
Mr. Clark completed the science department. The science classes
were constantly busy collecting bugs, dissecting, and examining
microbiologies. Excitement occurred in the science department
when, overnight, Mr. Chismis seven foot boa constrictor wriggl-
ed its way out of his cage, into the middle of the classroom.

Changes with Times
ln the past few years, no department has had as many additions as
the history department. Five years ago there were only the basic
history courses offered, such as American History and World History.
Now there are more than twenty-five different history courses each
with its ow-n purpose towards a complete history curriculum.
Mr. Boothe, department coordinator, planned the Social Studies
curriculum and made the needed improvements in the department.
Mr. Boothe stated, 6'My main objective is to improve the Social
Studies classes by improving the teaching methods." Mr. Boothe was
also responsible for arranging the visit of Mrs. Christopher Bond, who
visited the school in September and spoke to the various Social
Joining the Social Studies department, was Mrs. Utley, previously
teaching at West High School. She explained the differences between
the two schools, 'GHere at Ruskin there is less absenteeism and
assignments are turned in more frequently."
In the spring, an exhibit was held to help the students become
aware of the variety of available Social Studies classes and what each
had to offer the individual student.
Although the history department has made many changes, Mr.
Boothe hopes with the quality of classes offered, it will give History-
oriented students a wider outlook on the purpose of their lives and the

President Ford Wins Vote in Mock Election
During the election year of '76, Ruskin took its place alongside the nation
with its own mock election, sponsored by the Social Studies Department. It
may be possible that during the seventy five years of Ruskin's history, the E
students have never shown such enthusiasm or interest in an national elec-
tion. '6This election has not only been supported by the Social Studies
Department, but also the other departments as well. Many teachers have
become involved in the election and encouraged their students to do the
same," commented Mr. Boothe, supervisor of the election. The purpose of
the election was to give students a chance to participate and become in-
volved in voter registration, debates, and the actual voting. Results of
Ruskin's election were compared with the national results.
President Ford was elected to the office of President with fifty-five per
cent of the vote and Christopher Bond won the gubernatorial race with
fifty-eight per cent of the vote in the mock election. In comparison to thes'e
results were thenational results in which Jimmy Carter won the presiden-
tiol race and Joe Teasdale won the gubernatorial race. Although the
results of Ruskin's election differed with those of the national and local
results, both elections showed the closeness of the races.

in 1959. But since then, historical things have been ac-
complished, including the creation of a few new classes:
Contemporary Living, Child Development and the most re-

us realize the value of Home Economics and has attracted
the interest of more male students and teachers. '

1975, joined Mrs. Horton, Mrs. Callen and Miss Taylor last

New Methods o Teaching Help in Man Ways
The learning center, a new class this year, was taught by
Nlr. Jerome Yount. Tt's a place for students to help
themselves with any kind of disability they might have.
The student might be referred to the center by his
counselor or teacher or he may refer himself. Tests are
taken and if the student does have a disability he drops one
of his classes from his regular schedule and goes to the lear-
ning center instead. He may then study on a one-to-one
basis with Mr. Yount.
Functional Education was five classes combined into
one: Math, American History, Language Arts, Practical
Each class, taught by Mr. Beers or Mrs. DuVal, was uni-
que in itself. HlVIath was functional in everyday living,"
stated lVIr. Beers.
Much of the money for the arts and crafts and homemak-
ing classes was provided by the Eagleis Nest, a concession
stand set up in the cafeteria which sold breakfast items.

they wanted on their plates: salad plates, chili plates, ham-
burger plates, milk, ice cream, or a single order of french
Many necessary tasks were brought before the custodians
as they were the ones who kept our school building in A-1
condition. This six-man staff performed such duties as:
sweeping floors, washing windows, repairing broken win-
dows and hanging up pencil sharpeners. Their jobs did not
end with the students' last day of school. They worked con-
tinously throughout the summer repairing broken desks,
cutting the grass, and getting the school ready for the next
year. They were not confined to fixing, sweeping, and
cleaning, however, they did various jobs like setting up
and taking down chairs for assemblies, concerts, and plays.
Even though Mr. Steck was suspicious about the custodians
moving the cafeteria tables to the auditorium on the even-
ing of September 25, the hard-working men of our
custodial staff were able to do their part in the preparation
of Blaine Steck Night.

The Junior Varsity football team, grounded in a tradition
of hard work and strenuous practice, played each game up-
holding a goal to do their best. The first J.V. team was in-
itiated on the Ruskin gridiron in the fall of 1957. The 1976
team overcame their inexperience with aggressive plays and a
refusal to give up until the final buzzer sounded. The 0-6-1
record, was a disheartenment to the players. Coach Beeson
felt that there were a few games that they should have won,

There's More to Being
Winners Than Winning
Since football originated in the mid-1800's, great ad-
vancements have been made. In the early days, football was
known as soccer, played with a round ball that eventually
changed into the egg shaped football we now have.
Just as great advancements were made in the mid-1800's,
great advancements have been made in 6'76" for the
sophomore football team. Even though they never won a
game, they were not losers. Their record for the season was
0-7-1. The tie came from Belton, which proved to be the
most exciting game of the season. All the games were ex-
citing though with never more than a 10 point span
between the teams. The 32 man team, averaging more
players than in the past, resulted in many more skilled
offensive and defensive players. uIt's the best group we've
had in the past three or four years. They had a lot to learn
and it took one year to learn it," Said Coach Gunther. The
leading players were Dean Allen foffensive quarterbackj,
and David Brown fdefensive nose backj. The team as a
whole thought the season was profitable. They learned
many valuable points of football and feel that their playing
experiences will help them in the years to come.

Varsity C eerleaders Win
Super Star Squad Award
April is a time for picnics, budding flowers, warm weather,
spring love, and cheerleading tryouts. After weeks of hard prac
tice and preparation, six varsity cheerleaders were chosen to
represent our school. The six girls chosen were Patti Johnson
captain, Terri Giambalvo, co-captain, Beth Bruce, Vicki Lynn
Tina Moore, and Janet Trussell.
Almost as soon as school was out, summer practice began
Every morning at 6:00 a.m. the cheerleaders met on Ruskin's
East Lawn and worked on cheers, jumps, and formations. On the
third week of July, the girls traveled to Missouri Valley College
in Marshall, Missouri to participate in one of the many
cheerleading camps held. After a week of competition, the girls
were awarded five blue ribbons, the Super-Star Squad Award
and the Award of Excellence. During the summer the girls found
they had much in common such as talking, eating suckers, shop-
ping, and spending money.
Although our cheerleaders were supposed to be an example of
"perfection," they had their little oddities, such as Terri who
made up cheers in her dreams and then taught them at practice,
Tina who loved to dance to '6Tunnel Visionf, Vicki who always
had an idea for something . . . , Janet who bobbed her black
curls, Beth who cheered spotted when she caught the chicken
pox, and Patti who came to practice many times in hose and a
dress because she was on her way to work.
By the time school was out, the girls had 'ishown their stuff
and left behind a part of themselves in the spirit and pride of

ross Countr : onditioning to Competition
W2 Cross Country began at Ruskin and in the Kansas City area in
l962. It was developed as a conditioning program for the long
distance runners in track to keep in shape during the off season.
Gradually, it evolved into a competitive sport, with Ruskin be-
ing one of the first schools to compete in the Kansas City area.
There was much enthusiasm this season as seventeen runners
finished under the coaching of Mr. Rick Alford. Coach Alford
looks forward to the return of most of the athletes, with the ex-
ception of Tim DeBord, graduating captain. Recognition of in-
dividual effort was given to Eric Zugenbuhler who was
designated number one sophomore in Kansas City, and to Frank
Hood, junior, who was selected All-Conference, All-District, All-
State, twentieth in the state meet, and All-American.
X N familiar sight with Ruskin leading the pack.
Running long distances, the runners prepare for meets, and still end smiling.

Girls Serve or Sixth
The third year proved to be a good one for the Girls Ten-
nis team. They placed sixth in the District Tournament
which was held at Barstow, with sixteen other schools com-
peting. They finished second in Conference behind North
Kansas City with a 4-1 record. In the Conference Tourna-
ment Shannon Luthy went to the finals losing to Julie
Buckley of N.K.C., by a score of 6-1 and 6-1.
Nancy Eulitt also lost to Buckley in the semi-finals. In

Don Culver shares a happy moment with his real-life family.
Ruth Fallen Don Culver
Ruth Fallen, senior, had a lead
role in HSons." As Kate Keller, she
felt uneasy about incidents related
to the war days and the death of
her son, Larry: "It's so funny.
Everything seems to happen at the
same time. This month is his birth-
dayg his tree blows down, Annie
comes. I was just down in the
cellar and what do I stumble over?
His baseball glove. I haven't seen it
in a century."
Karen Denny, senior, has had a
role in a number of Ruskin's play
productions. As a junior she
played Dorothy in "The Wizard of
Oz." In 4'Sons" Karen played Ann
Deever, a girl who demanded a
great deal of Kate Keller: "I'd like
you to tell him that Larry is dead
and that you know it. You unders-
tand me? And then, I promise you,
everything will end and we'll go
away, and that's allff
Don Culver, senior, protrayed Joe
Keller in "Sons," a man who lies to
his family and to himself. He
crumbles when the truth unfolds:
"Then what is this if it isnit tell-
ing me? Sure, he was my son. Butl
think to him they were all my sons.
And I guess they were, I guess they
Bob Gahagan, senior, had the role
of Chris Keller, a young man who
lived in the shadow of his dead
brother: l'You know Larry's not
coming back and I know it. Why
do we allow her to go on thinking
that we believe with her? For
God's sake three years! Nobody
comes back after three years. It's

Russell, Hagar Direct 'All y Sons'
Ruskin's Little Theater opened in November with the
Arthur Miller drama, "All My Sons".
The story evolved around Joe Keller, his wife Kate, and
his son Chris. A visit by old family friends, Ann and George
Deever, renewed painful memories of the war years.
The Kellers and the Deevers had been neighbors and
business partners for years before the war. Chris and
George had been best friends all their lives. Chris's
brother, Larry, and George's sister, Ann, had been
childhood sweethearts. But the war changed things.
During the war, Keller's and Deeveris company made
airplane cylinder heads for the air force. The partner's
business had been considered legitimate until twenty-one
airplanes crashed and their pilots killed. The cause of the
deaths was traced back to Keller's and Deever's business.
The partners were arrested for knowingly passing defective
cylinder heads to the government and they were conse-
quently charged with the deaths of the twenty-one airmen.
The result of the trial: Keller was exonerated. Deever was
In the meantime, American boys were becoming grown
soldiers via Uncle Sam. After the trial, Chris, George and
Joe and Kate realize their mistake.
Ron Culver and Barb Cackler portray Dr. and Mrs. Blayliss.
Larry went to war. Chris and George returned with horrid
memories of battle and death. Joe and Kate's older son,
Larry, didn't return. Larry Keller was reported missing in
In the first months after the war, the Nkidsi'-Chris,
George, and Ann-felt bitter toward their fathers. Each
family had had a special loss because of the war. It seemed
paradoxical that they should grieve over Larry's death
while causing the deaths of twenty-one airmen.
But as Chris and Ann put painful memories behind
them and made plans to marry, long suppressed hurt was
rekindled within Kate and George. They insisted that
Larry's death would always come between Chris and Ann.
Finally, Ann revealed that Larry had committed suicide
out of shame for his father's part in the cylinder sales. Joe
Keller finally admitted that he had driven his son to
suicide. HI guess to him, they were all my sons."
For Mrs. Joyce Briggs, student directors Beth Russel and
Teresa Hagar, Miss Sue Travis, and the cast and crew of
'5All My Sons", the theme of the play was captured by the
character, ,lim Blayliss. "Every man has a star, the star of
onels honesty. Once it's out, it never lights again."
Cast and crew work together opening night.

43rd Edition o Mirage Untouched b Human
There can be no one word to describe the Mirage Staff.
You could try comparing it to a ZOO. In fact, that one
room at the left end of the business hall, Room 225, was a
zoo itself. We are probably the only school in the district, if
not the whole state, that has its own animal farm. How a
bunch of monkeys got out of the zoo is beyond anyone's
knowledgeg how they got on the yearbook staff proved to be
a doubles mistake. But even mistakes can be corrected, and
under the supervision of Miss Mary Haney and Don Culver,
editor of the yearbook, they soon put the staff temporarily
under controlg long enough to tell them that their job was
to have a yearbook completely finished, even if made of
bananas. To that there was total enthusiasm. But it wasn't
quite that easy. Don Culver proved his reputation of total
dictator and showed who was master, he kept his monkeys
busy, very busy.
Putting a yearbook together was far from being an easy
job. When copy had to be written, layouts drawn, and pic-
tures taken, developed and printed, there was little time to
be found monkeying around, even less when deadline time
was soon to come. To all staff members, deadline was an
unspoken word: it brought panic, fear and hysteria to each
and every heart. Deadline meant Hfinished work". And
Donnie Culver falls back in amazement, "You LOST your copy?!"
finished work meant that all typed copy and layouts were
sent to the plant to be processed on a certain day. None
dared to look into Don's eyes if his work for the next
deadline was not met. A deadline met was relief to the en-
tire staff, at least until the next one.
Successor Abbie Melton, next year's editor, will surely
have her hands full trying to keep the Zoo under control,
that is, if she still has her mind under control from the
Well, the finished yearbook before you, we believe, is the
best bunch of bananas you can find. And if a few banana
peels have slipped between the pages, don't throw all the
blame on the staff-even monkeys have to have their fun.

Hl-LIGHT has had a variety of headlines since the first issue rolled
off the press in 1935. In the good ole days, the scoop might include a
review of last week's sock hop, gossip of Emmy Lou's secret engage-
ment, and an ad for the soda of the week at Murry's Malt Shop. The
'76-'77 volume, edited by Glenda Barber, more typically featured a
story on an upcoming play, freebee entertainment in Kansas City, or
the nominees in a student election.
Since Mr. Arch Wrisinger began sponsoring the HI-LIGHT in 1960,
the paper has been specially recognized by the Columbia Scholastic
Press Association, the Missouri Interscholastic Press Association, and
the National Scholastic Press Association. The paper has thrice been
dubbed G'Medalist" by CSPA and has consistently won MIPA's '6All-
Missourim award since it was instituted in 1968.

Mud Doesnft Tarnish
The Go ld
Like the people of the Morton Salt Company say, 6'When
it rains it pours." That was the motto of the marching
hand. Their season started with a combined band half-time
show. The bands included: Hickman Mills, Baptiste, Er-
vin, Smith-Hale and Ruskin.
With three big events in succession, the band had to
practice in cold and rainy weather.
Homecoming was as successful as ever and a good 'swarm
up" for contests. On their way to Warrensburg, thundering
clouds towered overhead but subsided to let the sunshine
through. Thus the band marched to victory receiving a Nl"
rating in street marching. Despite the cold and downpour
plus a late bus, they received a third place plaque in field
marching and a first place trophy in street marching at
Fayette, Missouri. Though most band members agreed rain
and mud were hard to march in, they did like it better than
marching behind horses in the American Royal Parade.
With the checking in of marching music and scratchy
wet marching uniforms, the checking out of gold blazers
and changing instruments, the concert season started.
Through music change and instrumental additions, the
band moved to a more musical and colorful sound.
When basketball season started so did Pep Band. They
provided spirit and enthusiasm for the team. With the aid
of Mr. Schult, the name Screaming Eagles was adopted.
"Though the band is divided by seasons and groups, each
member has something in common: his ability to play an
instrument. They all had fun," stated Mr. Snodgrass.

Student Council remains the most powerful organization
in school, because it is an organization for all the students.
STUCO, under the leadership of President Steve Buie,
strived to get across this point.
Through the determination of the students and an abun-
dance of money in the treasury, last year proved to be very
As a result of its efforts during the United Fund cam-
paign, STUCO collected a total of 31050 from students and
teachers. Various fund raising projects were used, one ol
which was to put a pie in the face of the Student Council
member of your choice for a quarter.
The main money making project for STUCU was the
magazine sale. A goal was set and surpassed. The students
sold enough reading material and tapes to make a net
profit of 34,200 Top salesmen were Doug Brown. Brian
Mills, and Jane Mead who received 315, 310, and 35 respec-
tively. A drawing was held for students who sold three
magazine subscriptions and the grand prize winner was
Pam Mills, who received a futuristic chair with a stereo
contained inside. Those who sold three magazine subscrip-
tions also had a choice of a mug or a poster. A pizza party
was given to Drama II class which sold the most subscrip-
Despite the students' hard labor, it was not all work and
no play. As reward for their efforts the students were
treated to a Monty Python film and a rock concert.
To aid Steve Buie in his many chores were Tim Buic,

VICA Skilled in Trade
The going was slow before the VICA Club, tmore uncom-
monly known as Vocational Industrial Clubs of America,
really got going. And just where was VICA Club going? For
those that wanted to demonstrate their skills while on the
job, they were given the opportunity to do so by attending
area contests. Whether that person pumped gas at a service
station, served hamburgers at a fast food restaurant, or
built parts in a factory, all of those types of trade and in-
dustry are first learned and then to each his own. For the
perfectionists that are proud of their finished products or
skills, they participated in these contests. Winners at dis-
trict level would then advance on to state and nationals.
Mike Erter, President of VICA, for example, showed his
prowess in masonry. Expenses were paid for by VICA
members that sold Baby Ruth and Butterfinger candy bars.
And where do you think youire going? asks Mr. Crane.

The highlight of the year for the Color Guard was the
performance at the opening and closing ceremonies of the

The Color Guard consisted of Scott Camp, Dean Edwards,
Joe Garrick, Randy Jacobson, Mike Jaramillo, and Randall

Among numerous fund raising projects was the
prosperous cinnamon sucker sale. Contributing to the
cavity-prone years of the student body, French clubbers
sold over 2,500 suckers. The Homecoming Parade was
another success for the club. The theme "French Fry the
Pirates" won first place, outdoing all other club entries.
The festive months were further highlighted by the pain-
ting of holiday scenes on the windows. Members also en-
joyed French cuisine as they dined at a local French
restaurant and satisfied their hunger pangs. A guest

Chess Club is not a club designed to develop leaders, nor
a club to prepare students for life. It is a club organized to
play chess. Devout chess players may be found playing the
complicated game day in and day out, there are also those
who drop in for an occasional game to keep their skills up.
But no matter who the player, each knows well that chess is
a game of intelligence, intense competition, patience,
alertness, and enjoyment. Under the co-sponsorships of Mr.
Clark and Mr. Alford, Chess Club members may not have
bettered the world, but they did better the game of chess.

The Ruskin Riders, a horsemanship club, rode high in
spirit once again. Their interesting, and different activities
included listening to a jockey speak, going on a picnic,
riding horses in the Homecoming Parade, and going on a

riding, caring, and simply learning about horses.

a growing interest-horsemanship. Under the co-

Never a Dull Moment
Nlorc often than not, at the start of the year, clubs jump
right into their kettle full of bubbling ideas of fund-
raisings, group trips, and other what-have-you nots. Then
only to evaporate when lack of interest, participation and
spirit prevail, left to die in a flickering simmer. But all
brews don't go to potg for a few do turn into a good stew.
Such is the Key Club. Mix a batch of over fifty strong-
headed, roudy and untiring guys and your results are never
a dull moment.
The purpose of Key Club is to serve the area community.
Keeping that in mind, Key Club President Doug Brown,
was kept busy by providing the ingredients of doing
worthwhile work and spicing it up with fun at the same
time. He kept the fire burning through various recipes. A
volleyball match between Key Club members and the
Keywanettes proved to be a success. Admission was one
canned good to watch the battle between sexes. The overall
turnout of more than three large boxes filled with canned
goods were donated to needy families during Christmas.
The annual slave sale was again held where the Key Club
members sold their services to the highest bidder. Quite a

A Flowering Success
The Keywanettes, cohorts to the Key Club are serving the
area community, and are still newcomers to their league.
Though their roots are just starting to take grasp, the girls
have sewn their seeds of accomplishments since being
formed just two years ago. They have always given full sup-
port to Key Club activities such as partaking in a volleyball
game against Key Club to collect canned goods that were
donated to give to needy families. They proved to be great
spirit boosters as cheerleaders too when the Key Club battl-
ed their way to victory at a volleyball tournament.
A project the Keywanettes accounted for on their own in-
clude a Christmas dinner that was prepared and cooked for
an elderly woman, selling caramel apples during
Halloween, helping the Kiwanis Club sell tickets to both
the Pancake Breakfast and Chili Day.

Varsity BB 105
Eagles Fall Short of Goal
The Varsity Basketball team, made up of six sophomores, two
juniors. and three seniors, got off to a rather sluggish start. Although
all their games were close and exciting, the Eagles somehow fell short
of victory, compiling a win-loss record of four and twenty.
Leading the eleven-man team in scoring were returning letterman
Steve Hendrix and Sophomore Rodney King. Always on the rebound
was Russ Duncan, junior. Hendrix and Junior Jeff Ralls led the squad
in free throw percentages.
The roundballers, first victory came when the Eagles met Park Hill.
Every second counted as the scoreboard revealed a halftime score of
Ruskin 46, Park Hill 44. Within the last fifteen seconds, the Eagles
managed to maneuver a 67 to 64 win.
Head Coach Larry Frazier had a great deal of help from student
managers Tim Kirlin, Scott Jennings, and Leah Whittington. Leah
broke tradition by being the first female manager of a male sport.
Coaches Frazier, John Beeson, and Doug Taylor are looking
forward to next year, and will probably rely heavily on eight retur-
ning varsity players.
Don Carter gains control of the ball.
Roy Butts lays up an easy two points.

Hard work and an ability to never stop smiling were the
outstanding characteristics of the Junior Stand.
Delivering seemingly endless orders during many long
basketball and football games, the club pulled in 351692,
which was contributed to the annual Junior-Senior Prom.
Nearly 3700.00 alone was raised through the Faculty-KBEQ
President Pam Wilder and Vice-President Brian Mills
worked closely with sponsor Mr. Beers to make this one of
the most successful years the club has had, in spite of two
rained-out games. Other members of the club included
Dan Hinton, David Norman, Amy Lacy, Tony Carr, Betty
Dixon, Donna Glidewell, Kathy Settle, Debbie Knapp,
Ronald Taylor, and Joey Piatt.
Junior Stand is one of the least recognized and most im-
portant of the clubs at Ruskin. It serves a vital function and

Blue and Gold Diggers
Bring Back Top Honors
Dances to "Free Ride," "Hello Dolly," floshuaf, "Jingle
Bell Rockw and many others helped in raising the Blue and
Gold Diggers to stardom. This group of twenty-four girls, un-
der the direction of Karen Denny, captain, and Marianne
Giambalvo and Kim Perkins, co-captains, went to camp at the
University of Missouri-Columbia, and came back with three
trophies. One of these trophies was awarded to the girls for
first place as a result of their dance to "Free Ride". The se-
cond of the three trophies was awarded for the squad's over-
all camp spirit and the last trophy was awarded to Karen Den-
ny, for showmanship. Along with these trophies the Diggers
brought home the camp spirit stick and 104 ribbons. The
squad has had only one co-captain in years past, but to make
the load a little lighter this year they added one. This helped
greatly in the sharing of responsibilities and the making up of
new dances. Another first for the Blue and Gold Diggers was
dancing at a girl's basketball game, which also turned out to
be a great success. The combined talents of these twenty-four
girls made the half-time performances something to
Blue and Gold Diggers perform to "Free Ride

The Chanters were originated in 1969, as a cheerleading squad
for the wrestling team upon the request of Coach Clark. Ms.
Gaines, their sponsor, initiated weekly summer practices and
they also attended a summer camp in preparation for the 1976-77
The Chanters' cheers spur the wrestlers on throughout the
season and accompany them to the state tournament in Colum-
bia. They, as well as the Grapplettes, faithfully decorate their
"big brother wrestlers" lockers with crepe paper, balloons and
an occasional goody. They paint signs to boost the morale of the
wrestlers. On the way home from the away meets songs can be
heard from within the bus, in some cases to cheer the team up,
but in most to share the joy of their victory.

Varslt Learns, WznsMan
ln 1937, the first girls, basketball team was started at
Ruskin. They won their conference championship losing
only 6 out of their 22 games. One of the traditions in the
past years was to elect captains of the team to lead them vic-
torious through the season. Several years later, the lack of
interest took the team out of the picture. Due to the idea of
equality of men and women in sports, the team was put
back into action last year. Ms. Elaine Taylor, head coach
this season. helped the Varsity to execute many powerful
plays to close the season with 10 wins and 10 losses. We look
forward to seeing the girls back into action again next year
and hope the interest in sports never ceases to exist for
In the huddle, the Eaglettes get the spirit going.

The 1977 Winter Festival of Drama started off with ahbang. Drama
II presented three one acts chocked full of fun and laughter February
The mood was set, the lights went down and uNobody Sleeps" com-
menced. Clarence, a hen-pecked, would-be, burglar decides to rob the
rather eccentric Busby household. Its inhabitants aren't alarmed to
see a stranger in their house, instead their main concern is making
sure Clarence meets Mrs. Busby who is writing a mystery story. A sur-
prise ending keeps the audience smiling until 66Opening Nighti'
A new wave of laughter prevailed as Cornelia Otis Skinner's semi-
biographical play unraveled. Cornelia is faced with an opening night
and well-meaning friends do everything but help her over her jitters.
They are so wrapped up in themselves, they expect Cornelia to aid
Before the laughter died down, "City Slicker and Our Nell" started
chuckles rolling anew. This melodrama, complete with villains and
counterparts, hero and defenseless damsel, took place in the timeless
Appalachian Mountains. A complex plot and many exaggerated ac-
tions all turned out Hhappily ever after" and left the audience anx-
iously anticipating Drama III's performance the following Saturday.

Take It With You Is a Hit
The comedy "You can't Take It with You," rang with poig-
nant reminder when performed by the senior or drama students
as one of their last plays, February 24, and 26. Throughout the
majority of the play, mass confusion reigned as the Sycamore
family set about its most unusual life. The action centers on
Alice Sycamore who has somehow escaped the hilarious
madness of her family. She has fallen in love with the president
of the company where she works. Alice invites Tony's family to
dinner and is going to Mput on the dog." But the Kirbys arrive a
night early and catch the Sycamores in their normal state of pan-
demonium. The play ends happily, in spite of the many mishaps
which occur, asoAlice and Tony pledge their undying love, and
the two families join together in common understanding.

baseball team. This season they got it with the Western-
Division champions of the American League, the Kansas

every bit of it, setting attendance records for the season,

in the end it was a bitter battle to dethrone the Oakland

but they proved their two games at home, and missing a

Bell Tolls for Alumni
"Happy days are here again!" was the general theme when Ruskin's stu-
dent body and faculty joined in celebrating Ruskin's 75th anniversary.
They listened as Steve Buie rang the same bell that was used to call the
classes to order in 1902, bopped to the bandis version of "Rock Around the
Clock," and later enhanced their lunches with a birthday cake baked by
the Booster Club especially for the occasion.
Many Ruskin alumni on hand for the event began reminiscing as the
familiar hell tolled. Mrs. Jessie Blyholder shared her fond memories of
Ruskin with an attentive audience. She and Mrs. Luella Campbell
Truman are the only surviving members of the class of 1906. Although
Mrs. Truman could not be present, she sent a letter expressing her love
and pride for Ruskin as it has grown. Mrs. Helen Holmes Emery, whose
class chose the school colors, and mascot, explained how she had made the
school's first flag which was presented at Ruskin's 50th anniversary in
Mrs. Clara Babcock Moore read an ad about Martha Washington that
was on a tablet which she used when she went to school in 1911. Mrs. Mae
White Ervin, the only girl in a class of four in 1913, married Ben Ervin of
the same class. Mr. Ervin wished "that Ruskin would last forever as does
the oak tree that is made by God." Mr. Harvey Kemper, class of 1926, and
his wife, Mildred Holmes Kemper, class of 1929, represented their classes
at the assembly.
Ron Goodwin, 1960 graduate, was Ruskin's last four year letterman. Mr.
Goodwin told how "classy the cool guys looked cruising Allen's Drive In
and rockin' to Little Richardf'

Stars Are Born in K.C.
Kansas City has been besieged with hundreds of popular
movies. Many of these theatrical marvels have lured
thousands from their warm houses into the cold dark night
only 'to be greeted by a mile long line and a sign proclaim-
ing . . . "Sold Out." What movie could better illustrate
these stark realities than "A Star Is Born." This show now
features Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. This
dynamic couple has been drawing record breaking crowds
Who could forge the original 'Goldie but goodie ing
Kong." This movie, taken from the old classic, was done at
a cost of millions just for "Kong" The huge beast, con-
structed mainly from styrofoam, was electronically
The people of the 70's must think that the theater would
surely outdo all past tries, but the population of the 30's
were the building blocks of filming today. Both of these
movies are over 40 years new. You've got to admit that
these movies were bred from good stock.

s-ouri Wants Your Vote
The Equal Rights Amendment needs the ratification of
two more states to become an amendment to the U.S.
Constitution. The liberal states immediately saw its impor-
tance and quickly gave their approval. The more conser-
vative states are the ones that are putting a damper on the
passage of the bill. They donit seem to agree with the
liberals who believe that the ERA,s acceptance would
result in a more harmonious nation.
Missouri is one of the above mentioned conservative
states. The "show me" state displays its persistence by
shooting down the bill everytime it is up for consideration.
Of course, Missouri also took its time ratifying the black
suffrage bill and it was one of the last states to allow women
The future is in the hands of Americais young people.
They will determine whether or not the U.S. is the land of
liberty and justice for all, regardless of sex.

Swine Flu Hits Midwest
Not only has the nostalgia craze affected our movies and
songs, it has also returned in the form of a disease: Swine
Swine flu first appeared in epidemic proportions
around the turn of the century. Many people contracted
the disease and died before a cure could be found. In
Chicago, so many were infected that strict quarantines
were set up in an attempt to control the spread of this
When a new case appeared, the frightening memory of
the damage this disease once wrecked brought about quick
action by the government. A massive innoculation program
was undertaken with the hope of immunizing every adult
citizen in the U.S. Ruskin was an innoculation center for its
surrounding community. Some 2400 people flocked here
for their injections.
Participation in the program was strong for a great while
until reports came out about some people adversely
affected by the shot. They had either died or became
paralyzed after receiving the shot. This created a panic and
the government discontinued the shots until further
studies could be made.

Ape Comes to Ruskm
Could it be we now have another "King Kongw in our
Mr. Chism, a natural ham, portrayed the hairy ape in the
January Waldo Astoria production of the "Gorilla," Chism
co-starred with local actor Dennis Allen and Al Lewis of
A contest was staged by the K.B.E.Q. radio station for the
selection of the harriest ape. These amateurs were selected
for various assets that no other has yet attained such as, the
most foul smelling breath, the longest neandrethal arms,
and of course the hairiest chest. Who would be better
suited for this key role than our own Mr. Chism?
The faculty and student body of Ruskin were given a
special discount because of Chism's performance. The
audience was pleased with the three acts and certainly
quite content with the buffet dinner and the abundant
non-alchoholic drinks, 6'Carrie Nations."
This performance was not unlike the old vaudville type
shows and luckily for Chism he was thrown applause
rather than tomatoes. Chism, the farce, and our resident
actor, were a great success.

Baseball Eagles Take
Con erence Title
Baseball hopefuls met in early spring with Coach Wild to vie
for spots on the varsity squad. Practice included calisthenics,
defense and theory.
Those who survived the cuts for 15 available spots started
practice early in the season. At that time, rain dampened the
fields and postponed many games, but did little damage to the
teamis spirits and talent.
Though April snow tried to cool off the team, it grew hotter
than ever. And with Lady Luck fthe Baseball Cheerleadersj help-
ing, the team set their sights for a conference championship.
The team ended their season with an overall 11-7 record, and a
9-6 conference record.
Best of all, the team got its wishg late May brought a con-
ference championship to the Eagle coaches and players.

B.C.'s Boost Spirit
As winter came to an end, spring fever hit, and all that
was on the students' minds was getting out of school and
heading for the local swimming pool to compete for the
best "tan" of the summer. However, in the midst of
summer job planning and skipping, baseball season had
begun. With this sport came many supporting fans and
among these fans were smiling faces, those of the baseball
The nine girls were chosen by Mr. Larry Wild, head
baseball coach. Lead by Janet Favazza, junior, the squad
consisted of Jeanne Boursheskie and Debbie Elsasser,
seniorsg Joy Meikle, Jennifer Meloy, Patti Taylor, and

With the support of these B.C. girls, how could the
season have been anything but a winner?

The "Swingers" Beat
Are you familiar with the 'bswingersw of Ruskin? Well if
youire not sure about it, they are the members of the golf
team. Their familiar "fore" was sounded on March 30 as
they started a brand new season. And what better way to
start, than with a battle against the Hickman Mills
Cougars. In a sudden death playoff the Eagles were
pronounced winners, the first in two years against
Under the coaching of Mr. Ken Quest, the Eagle

practicing or playing a match against a tough opponent.
Not much enthusiasm is shown towards the golf team but

the past "swingers" teeing off in the Bob Hope Classic.

The ainy Season
Bubble gum, popcorn, and sunny days brings one ofthe
favorite pastimes of many people, the All-American
baseball game. Sophomores, just like the JV and Varsity,
enjoy the game just as much. They opened their season at
home on the Clark-Ketterman fields on April 5. Not too
many people get out to see the games but this doesn't keep
the spirit of the sophomores down. They still play with the
competitive winning spirit no matter where the game is
played or what the score is.
The coach of the sophomore Sluggers is Mr. Ken Chism,
whose brave coaching qualities helped the sophomores
throughout the entire season. We hope to see many of these
sophomores on the Junior Varsity team next year.

For Coach Moore,,this year was his best in four years of
coaching tennis. But with such an unusual season it was far
from successful. 'cEach year we improve our strategy by
learning from the proceeding year's mistakes so we are very
optomistic about next yearis season," says Coach Moore.
There will be five returning letterman next season.
These includeg Curtis Crawford, Pat Burns, Tracy Frac-
tian, R.T. Steely, and Dan Eulitt. This should set a substan-
tial foundation for the 1977-1978 tennis season.
Coach Moore believes not only in coaching, but also in demonstrating allg
aspects of a tennis match

Con erenee and District
W hen the Ancient Greeks began track and field events,
they must have had the 1976-77 track team in mind. For
their sprinters, relay men, hurdlers and jumpers met their
ancestors' high expectations. Whether running, jumping,
throwing, or just watching, boys' track was one sport that
kept people involved. Among Coach Rick Alfordis talented
athletes was Claude Douglas, who scored highest at the con-
ference meet. Ruskin placed first in eight of the events and
captured the championship trophy.
At district, the Eagles outran Hickman Mills and other
schools to acquire the district crown and to qualify for state
competition. A strong junior base makes for an en-
couraging 77-78 season.
The finish line wasn't too far away for Ruskin trackers.

Girls Discipline Attitudes
Speedy track shoes glide over the finish line and bask in
the deserved glory. Looking up from the happy feet, you
see not the expected hairy legs and sinewy muscles of a Tar-
zan, but rather, the smooth, more subtly toned leg of a
female. So goes the story of girls' track.
The feminine version of track has literally grown in leaps
and bounds. Sophomore recruits dominate the composi-
tion of the team but there are plenty of willing-and-able
juniors and seniors, too.
The team has had its share of wins and losses but is doing
better than ever before. Almost every Ruskin record has
been tied or broken during the season. This is an im-
pressive accomplishment considering the girls had two
first-time girls' track coaches. Mrs. Bonita Utley and Mr.
Jim Clark have lead the girls to many rewarding endeavors
with hopes for many more.
Deep concentration brings Ruskin to number one.
Throwing a softball takes a lot more than meets the eye.

Booster Club In 15th Year
Stull Promotmg agle Prule
During our 75 years, we have been supported by many outstan
ding clubs Booster Club whose membership includes parents who
wish to further the educational needs of their children and assist
all levels of sporting events for boys and girls has been one of the
most active clubs at Ruskin Booster Club originated in 1961 at
Baptiste Jr High The Steck family were the original members
When Booster Club first began 11S support centered around the
athletes. This support gradually grew until all student body ac-
tivities were supported by the club
Because of the enthusiasm of this club, it has always been very
successful. In the last three years, 361 000 has been raised through
various activities. The two main money raising projects of Booster
Club were the haunted house which was held in the fall and raised
on third of the money collected and the garage sale which was held
in the spring. The purpose of these two projects was to decrease the
need for additional taxes and levies. Booster Club also participate
in the Homecoming Parade, the Pep Rally, the Awards Banquet,
and Meet the Squad night.
The officers of Booster Club were Mr. and Mrs. Don Johnson,
President, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Blinzer, Secretaries, and Mr. and Mrs.
Bob Eisenbeis, Treasurers. Their work and accomplishments were
made possible by the support of over 150 ambitious, hardworking
Boosters. The Mirage staff would like to pay a special tribute to the
Booster Club for their work and support of our activities.
The Booster Club of 1976-1977 enjoyed a prosperous year.

Seniors Bleed or unkind'
Courage, empathy, and concern were three feelings experienced by the
seniors as they donated blood on Ruskin's fourth annual Blood Donor
Day. Their actions could possibly have been motivated by the inimitable
nurse, Florance Nightengale, who gave her nursing skills and essentially
her life to the betterment of the medical profession.
The seniors aided in curbing the high costs of blood, 3538 a pint, by
sponsoring the Blood Donor Day. The goal of 150 pints was exceeded by
the daring upper classmen. The project's purpose was not only to helgp
lower the extravagant cost of blood but also to keep the blood bank s
su ply at a safe level.
geniors stood patiently in line amidst the bustle of activity in the
usually quiet atmosphere of the library. Many other students walked
closely by expecting to detect outcries of pain and remorse but none
could be heard. No, aside from the few questions necessary to determine
their physical eligibility, the seniors found the process to be swift and far
from painful. Many of the students who were unable to donate had alter-
nate ways of getting involved. They served as nurses' assistants, equip-
ment loaders, and refreshment providers.
Ruskin was the first high school in Missouri to initiate the Senior
Blood Donor Day. Because of our precedent other schools have begun
blood donor programs of their own. The seniors' actions were not only
educational and beneficial, but also exemplified the spirit and involve-
ment usually associated with Ruskin. By sponsoring such a project the
seniors could possibly have started an "origin" of their own.
Owen Neff mustered a smile between the anticipation and relief.

rewards, as shown by the many Blond Donor smiles

A Search for Identit
Sylvia Barrett, a l'resh young teacher arrived at Calvin
Coolidge lligh School prepared to teach everything from
fundamentals ol' English to Chaucer. lVlueh to her dismay,
when she walked into her room she found a rowdy, rude
bunch ol' young adults totally unprepared for the world
around them. Sylvia sees her miscaleulation, throws away
her old lessons and begins a new plan-a plan to teach
students about life. All Miss Barrett's hopes were ae-
complished in the 1977 Spring Play '6Up the Down Stair-
case" presented April 29 and 30.
Wliss Barrelt's class consisted ofthe stereotyped bubbling
cheerleader, a class elowng Joe Ferrone, a Fonzie typeg
played by lVlike Biagolig and Alice Blake, a shy girl with
hidden problems portrayed by Becky Peterson. Not only
did Sylvia have to overcome problems with students, but
also with the administration. Tim Buie acted as the stub-
born supply' and discipline director and Paul Barringer,
glamour boy ol' the English department was depicted by
HonCulver.'l1he director and the glamour boy both caused
her many problems of different natures.
Sylviais lessons always revolved around the theme 'GA
man's reach should exceed his grasp" and two full houses
proved that the play exceeded its suspected graspl
lKids sprawling in classrooms, pushing through halls."

M rlztary Ball
Here she comes, "Miss America"! Well not exactly.
The suspense and excitement was that of a beauty contest
at the 10th Annual Military Ball. As each attendant was an-
nounced the tension mounted as Teresa Farr was crowned
Queen and David Pritchett King. The queen's attendants
were: Senior, Susan Giles, Sophomore, Kelly Watkins, and
Freshman, Mariam Woodham. Kathleen Gradwohl, the
Junior attendant, was unable to attend.
The band, Shatter, provided entertainment for the
cadets and their dates. The usual steak dinner was not serv-
ed. Roast beef changed the pace.
Among the guests that attended were: Colonel Moise and
his wife, Mrs. Douglas, counselor at Smith-Hale, Mr. and
Mrs. Arnone and several graduates of the corps: Keith Gar-
ton 119761, LeRoy Stevens f1974l, Gary Blankenship 119751
and Brenda Steely 119761, also last year's senior attendant.
President Carter sent a letter of regret stating that he was
sorry he could not attend.
The Ball, which in past years was held at the Officers
Club at Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base moved to the
Granada Inn. Along with this change was the addition of a
king to the queenis court.
This year's queen should be well remembered, not
because of her evident popularity or beauty, but because
she is the last queen until Ruskin resumes its R.O.T.C.
program. Along with the glitter and glamour of the king,
ueen and her attendants ends a part of Ruskin with the
discontinuation of its military program.
Keith Carton represents the junior attendant as David Pritchett tries to
kiss the winner.

The Semor Year
A Year to Remember
We, the Senior Class of 1977, were like every senior
class in the past, present, and future, ready and
waiting for the end of the year to go out and face the
world. Trying to make our senior year one to
remember, we made activities available to everyone to
participate in such as ....
On September 9, elections were held for Senior
Class Officers. Elected were President, Cary Damon,
Vice President, Chuck Haefele, Secretary, Jeanne
Boursheski, and Treasurer, Patty Watson. On
September 24, the whole school was involved in
Homecoming festivities. Tracy Coleman was crowned
queen during the halftime with Vicki Lynn and
Karen Denny as Senior Attendants. The Senior Class
was awarded first place in the class competition event
of the float contest.
October 2 was the date of our Senior class car wash,
held at a local restaurant to raise money for our class.
Because of our success we decided to celebrate on
November 20 by having a hayride at Benjamin
On April 13, seniors held the annual Blood Donor
Day which was a natural success.
For the special, unique times, we remember Friday,
May 6, the day of the Junior-Senior Prom, held at the
Royals Stadium Club. Sunday May 15, was Bac-
calaureate, and the day that all seniors wait for . . .
May 21, GRADUATION.
No matter what the goals or accomplishments of
each individual, WE ARE THE GRADUATING
CLASS OF 1977.

period. No excitement, no oomph. ABC decided to change
all that by adding a little pizazz, a little spice to an
otherwise nutritious, but bland, broth. Barbara Walters, a
beautiful journalist and newscaster on the Today Show,
was a touch ABC had in mind.
ABC offered her a deal she couldn't refuse: a contract
guaranteeing one million dollars a year for five years.
Much controversy resulted about her extravagant contract.
ESQUIRE went as far as calling her 'Gthe million dollar
baby in the five and ten cent store."
Oblivious to her widespread publicity, she has failed to
bring up the ratings with that feminine touch. Perhaps she
can find some way to make those ratings climb before her

Many have heard the cliche NI cried and cried
because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no
feetf, This is a classic example of girls who are never
satisfied with their hair. Much has been done to
pacify girls with unruly hair.
Shampoos, creme rinses, conditioners, curling
irons, and blow dryers make it easier to contend with
old hair style fads and just plain ugly hair. An old
shag that has grown out can be easily be turned into
the glamorous Farrah Fawcett Majors cut, hair with
bangs can become hair with feathered bangs for a
much more chic look. The girl who attends school
may not have the time it takes for the endless curling
that goes into those locks, so for them there is the
Dorothy Hamill cut, a short fly away cut that needs
only a few minutes of blow drying, and looks short
and sassy. Then for those who have wavy hair there is
the curly afro, a smart look if kept in proportion.

Susie Wilson won the title of Miss Teenage Kansas City.
A Cowtown or Music
Kansas City, like Chicago, Detroit, and St. Louis, has
become a fixed stop for rock groups. These groups are not
small-fry names, just as Kansas City is a cowtown no more.
Kemper Arena has received Paul McCartney and Wings,
the Eagles and Kiss with more than open arms this past
year-rather, with sellout audiences.
We are fortunate to have appropriate facilities: Kemper
Arena, Municipal Auditorium and Memorial Hall. Kemper
covers the big name groups but does not give the best
acoustics. Memorial, considered the ideal setting for a con-
cert, has a comfortable atmosphere where almost any seat
in the house is good. The acoustics are excellent, and
memorable Memorial performances have included Kansas,
REO, and Styx. Municipal, by far the most Hlived in" of the
three arenas has housed Ted Nugent, Blue Oyster Cult,
Bad Company, Genesis, ELO, Bob Seger, and Gary Wright.
Also popular are the Uptown and Lyric Capri theatres.
Although capacities are limited to two thousand people,
these theatres are always packed to the max. Both the
Royals and Arrowhead Stadiums have been put to use dur-
ing the summer. Summerjam's I and II, featuring the
Beach Boys, Peter Frampton, Doobie Brothers, Gary
Wright, and Fleetwood Mac proved a great success.
Good music and good times can be found in Kansas City.
Those concerts attended will keep music in our ears until
the next one. Pink Floyd, where are you?

T. V. Ads are In luential
It's a fact that TV wouldn't be as educational without
those 'ltell you all about iti' commercials. We have possibly
learned more in one day from what those thirty to sixty se-
cond commercials have to say than from full six hours of
school. What could we do without them?
Children and grownups alike fashion their grooming
habits, eating habits, and lifestyles from their commercial
counterparts. Kids love ,lello pudding because Bill Cosby
does, eat only the cereal that Mikey likes, and want to own
the latest Six Million Dollar Man doll. We learn that Dr.
Pepper is the joy of every boy and girl, Chunky Soup
shouldn't be eaten with a fork, and only with Avon will you
ever look so good. Glued to that tube, over 50 million
Americans just saw Morris have his din-din. Suddenly a
new product is flashed before their eyes and a mad rush is
on to be the first to try it. If you hurry, you might make it
back in time-for the next commercial.

apital Punishment: A p
0 ? Roberts, Jeri Roe, Jay l Roma, Joe
This winter Ruskin faculty and students werebusy
discussing and arguing on the execution of Gary
Gilmore. Did he have a right to die, to get his death
wish? Teachers and students all saw it different: a
murderer should be executed, if Gilmore wanted to
die, let him die, execution is no longer punishment if
it is favorable to the criminal, or government should
not take part in murders, much less death wishes,
capital punishment is wrong, no one should killed
when it can be avoided.
But Gary Gilmore got his wish, on January 17, two
months after the originally scheduled November 15
execution. The two-time murderer, who had spend
time in prision during eighteen of his last twenty one
years, became the first person executed in the United
States in ten years. In the months before his death, he
insisted on dying "like a man," and "dying with dig-
Ruskinites joined in the national debate not only of
Gilmore: criminal or folk hero?, but of capital
punishment in general. Three hundred fifty-eight
others wait on death row and many Americans are
asking themselves two questions: do we have the right
to take oneis life?, and do we have a right to die?

In 1974 there was television. In 1976 and '77 there
were the best sellers. ABC's twelve-part adaptation of
Irwin Shawis RICHMAN, POOR MAN was the first,
then others followed: NBC's ONCE AN EAGLE and
CAPTAIN AND THE KINGS, and of course, ABC's
ROOTS. Television's approach to the best seller list
seems to be working and more can be expected in the
Alex Haley's ROOTS was a gamble, it was aired on
eight consecutive nights for a total of twelve
hours-a scheduling experiment matched only by
ABC's showing of the 1976 Summer Olympics, but
ROOTS hit home. The last episode drew an audience
of eighty million, smashing the record set by GONE
WITH THE WIND. In all, some 130 million
Americans watched at least part of the series.
On racial impact, ROOTS may be rated second only
to the civil rights movement of the '60's. A growing in-
terest to search for oneis own 'srootsm has hit America
and thus television market and television executives
search for books to match ROOTS feat. Americans
wait to see what's next. As the television industry
goes, we are sure to see many more best sellers before
it all cools off.

Busy To Make
Ma a Memor
'Ks in years past, tradition prevailedg the junior class was
called upon to prepare the upcoming junior-senior prom.
Xml that they did. ,lanet lfavazza, committee chairwoman,
and almost twenty otherjuniors worked diligently in hopes
that Prom would outshine previous ones.
lifter much decision and confusion, Prom was set for
Nlay 6 at the Royals Stadium Club. Last year's prom had
also been held there. A conference track meet, Uriah Heep
concert and Grad Night at Worlds of Fun also fell upon the
same date, providing conflict, yet a majority of students
attended the Prom.
The committee went to great expense and effort choosing
thc band to play. More than ten hands were auditioned,
and Sirius was decided upon for the musical background
of the evening. A band fee of 35500 was added to the expense
account of the committee while plans for choice of
refreshments, decorations, invitations and other details
were made. These plans kept the committee busy until the
memorable spring night.
Committee members were joey' Birchard, Tim Buie,
Cary Clark, Perry llunter, Laura Johanncsmcyer, Steve
Johnson, Rose Lacy, Kenna Lawson, Kim lVlacNally', jen-
nifer Yleloy, ,Nbbie Melton, Steve Perkins, Pam Prudden,

Memories . . .
The night of Prom arrived, and for those attending, it
proved to be a memorable evening. 'fMemories," the
chosen theme, gave participants the incentive to look back
upon the school year that was almost overg seniors realized
Ruskin would soon be just a stepping stone of the past.
As the magic hour of eight o'clock came, couples began to
drift in. The ladies, dressed in long, flowing dresses, were
escorted by men in coordinating tuxedos. The candle-lit
tables were soon filled by couples as was the dance floor.
The room was filled with the music of Sirius, who played
familiar songs. Refreshments of finger sandwiches, chips
and dip were provided to the hungry guests while a punch-
filled champagne fountain quenched the thirsts of the
energetic dancers. The stadium fountains had been
graciously turned on to provide a scenic water show.
With her escort, Jolene Lawson signs the guest book as Dean Allen looks

Steve Perkins, Perry Hunter, Joey Birchard, Randy Rusk and Tim Buie,
members of Prom Committee.
Remember . . .
the slam of a locker
as someone hurried off,
the pages that rustled
as we opened our books.,
the pencils that clattered
from a too restless hand,
humming along in tune
with our number one bandg
the trips to the nurse
to relieve the aches and pains,
whether imaginary or minor
a headache or a spraing
the cheer from the stands
when our team shot for two,
the pride in our hearts
when we sang the gold and blueg
the moans and groans of class
when we heard the word test
and the pop quiz thrown in
to help remember the rest,
cajoling with close friends
as we walked along the hall
recalling events and incidents
that happened to us all,
the clatters of the kitchen
as we waited in lines
for that tasteless school lunch
for a quarter and three dimesg
taking notes, boring lectures
roaming through the halls . . .
Ruskin . . . an experience
remembered by us all.

Part of Senior Li e
A person's senior year is one of the most important parts of his
life. Along with last time high school finals, turning eighteen, not
to mention Senior "Care Day" there is also Baccalaureate. Bac-
calaureate is a sermon to a graduating class and this year's sermon
was given hy Reverend Max Morris.
Friends and family of the graduates were invited to share in the
hour long service which included songs hy the gold choir, henedic-
tion hy Father Wayne Walters, scripture readings, and an invoca-
tion. In explaining how it felt to walk up the aisle to "Pomp and
Circumstancen to her younger sister one senior girl replied, Gilt
makes you feel like you're in a beauty contestf,
Every senior had a different idea of how it felt but one thing
prevailed in the minds of every graduate-the thought that in less
than a week they would no longer be seniorsg they would be alumni
of Ruskin High School.

ffNo Bird Soars Too High, I He Soars With His Uwn Wings"
This was not my first graduation. No, I had seen them many times
before: my older brother and sister, their friends. It was different
though . . . as I glanced down the aisle I didn't just see rows of caps
and gowns as I had before. I saw people, friends who I had spent the
"good ole days" with, stumbling, learning, growing gradually paving
our way to an ultimate goal. As the Pomp and Circumstance March
began, memories of the past twelve years ran quickly through our
minds. Although each particular rememberance had its own unique
quality, all had one thing in common: we had reached the end, yet
only the beginning. As we received our diplomas we wondered what
the world really had to offer. What did we spend the last twelve years
of our life preparing for?
We clasp hands and for a moment remember ourselves entering
the doors of Ruskin as small birds, with few feathers, wobbling on our
feet, seeking knowledge, discipline, guidance, and education. Matur-
ing physically and mentally we shed our frivolous ways. BUT
WAIT-tonight, with hearts pounding and tears flowing we know
that we have reached the apex of our goal. We no longer wonder what
the world has to offer, but what we have to offer the world. For we are
no longer small birds, at last we are as strong as the "Golden Eaglef,

The school bell tolls
The sound I've heard more than a million
Piercing my ears for the final time.

So many people I have yet to know . . .

Masses of people swarming towards open doors
