The statements in the opening section of the yearbook were written by the staff. These tie in with the theme; W e Will Never Pass This Way Again. This theme was chosen because our years in high school are special times - times we will have only once. Thanks must be given to everyone who has helped make this yearbook possible, especially Mr. Thalman for his time, patience, and hard work. Martha Silbert, editor

Topper Homecoming: Courtright Crowned Homecoming is the highlight of the football season. The spirit of the band, cheerleaders, drill team and student body aided in scorching the Espanola Sundevils, 20-14. The theme, "Exorcise the Sun Devils," was well represented in the parade by class, club, and community floats. Chain, Hat and Spirit Day all fell into their traditional places as the Homecoming week unfolded. The dance, featuring The Planets, provided lunar entertainment for all attending. Coronation activities took place with the presentation of the court and the crowning of queen Lynne Courtright. This years' Homecoming was a memorable event that will linger in our minds for many tomorrows.

"W e are part of a new environmental ethic. We are trying to see the world with new eyes . . . to hear the world with new ears . . . to feel the world with a new touch . . . to comprehend with a better understanding. What we must come to understand is that we are all part of a closed circle, and we have broken out of this circle, thus causing an environmental crisis." This is the theme of the Student Traveling Awareness Team for the Environment (STATE), a group of ten high school students and their director Mary Louise Williams. STATE travels through New Mexico, spreading environmental awareness and emphasizing this country's urgent environmental needs. This year's team visited Tohatchi, Hobbs, Raton, and Spring­ er. It also performed for many civic organizations.

Sadie Hawkins: Grab Your Man! "Satin Flame" provided the entertainment for this year's Sadie Hawkins, which was sponsored by Youth in Government. This hillbilly hoedown featured many unusual activities. At this informal dance the girls asked the guys, breaking the traditional roles. The high point of the night was the chase, where the boys were set free only to be captured by their dates who lead them to the feet of Marryin' Sam. The hillbilly atmosphere added to the surroundings, making Sadie Hawkins a unique experience for all.

Topper Revue! Cosmic Journey "Journey into the Unknown" was the provocative theme for Topper Revue this year. Unique changes were seen in the show by the talents of nineteen instead of the traditional four emcees. Class skits were on the borderline between fantasy and reality while the senior boys created a "Grand Illusion" of their own. This year's show was an extra-terrestrial experience that will linger in the minds of many for years to come.


This year's Student Government Day took place on Wednesday, April 20. Students enjoyed the opportunity to run the county for an entire day. The day was filled with interesting information, an excellent guest speaker (Sam Pick, former Santa Fe Mayor), and a tour of the new police building. The highlight of the day was the mock county council meeting where the "council" passed some unusual, but valuable ordinances. The meeting was broadcast over KRSN.

The $17,000 Question Can You Meet the Challenge?

BE SOM EONE SPECIAL JOIN THE NAVY Talk to your local Navy Recruiter. Call us anytime (toll-free) 800-841-8000 In Santa Fe see Dave Mork 1612 St. Michael's Drive call collect 988-6305 or 988-6289


$17,000. That's about what it costs us to train you in the Navy's Advanced Electronics or Nuclear Power Programs. But the value of that training to you . . . who can say? It will enable you to operate and maintain the most advanced electronics systems or nuclear power plants. In the Navy or later on. To qualify, you need a high school diploma and a good head, good hands, and a real desire to stick with thor­ ough and sophisticated training. And a willingness to do your share of the housekeeping chores. So the answer to the $17,000 question is really up to you. Think you can meet the challenge?
