One of the biggest fads during 1982-83 was videogames. Crowds of students could be seen in Captain Video, Anderson’s, and Big Cheese spending all of their quarters on games such as PACMAN and DEFENDER. Home video game sets such as Atari which could be hooked into TV sets were also very popular. This year students really got into the latest fashions, from knickers (Lisa Lindemuth and Kathy Daly), coulottes, and miniskirts (Melanie Anderson) to shirts with various critters to legwarmers and the layered look. Side-buttoned blouses and sweaters tied over the shoulders were still popular for girls and the prairie look was all the rage. Preppy or western were the main alternatives for boys. Tennis shoes, especially Nikes, were seen all over the high school, but cowboy boots, boat shoes, wafflestompers, duck shoes, baby dolls, and pumps were also worn. The dominant types of foods were at two extremes: health food and junk food. Sunflower seeds and frozen yogurt were in demand and a new kind of drink, Caprisun, became very popular. Just as many people, however, favored traditional junk food such as pizza, ice cream, and diet drinks. Regardless of the food they ate, students seemed more interested than ever in physical fitness, participating in var­ ious sports, jogging, biking (Patty Machen), and even taking up Jazzercise. ET was this year’s star of the movies. His adorable face or his slogan “Phone home’’ could be seen on T-shirts, buttons, and bumperstickers, while punkers Jennifer Schinn and Chris Lynch demonstrate another ongoing fad.

Outer Limits are the borders for activities in Los Alamos. The outdoors forms our backyard. Pam Farr gropes her way through thick powder while Mike Pruitt likes his skating best. Abiquiu makes excellent sailing for Mark Wadstrom. East Forks is a favorite spot. Steve Wewerka dives from the first cliff as Pat Conn sprints on air. Brian Ray and David Charlton look on. Katy Cross and her horse Double L Dot are familiar contestants at horseshows. Bill Hunter resembles Spider Man as he scales rocks in the canyon behind the school. He assured us it was during class time. Sam Louck is pursuing Jaws. The Rock Climbing Club, headed by Mr. Chris Foster (left), spends a lot of time clinging to local cliffs. On the far right is Jennifer Leon. Justin Gehre and John Greenwood (bow) find rafting demanding.

Putting on this Rogers and Hammerstein Broadway hit was a big chal­ lenge for the Olions because they had less than 8 weeks to perfect a major production. After countless hours of hard work, however, over 100 stu­ dents made South Pacific come alive. Those students included the hard­ working back stage, set, make-up, costume, props, sound, light, and publicity crew members as well as the actors and orchestra members. South Pacific was a huge success, earning a standing ovation each night and very good reviews. Sheldon Kalberg was assisted in directing the production by Kathy Gross, a student, Don Beene conducted the orches­ tra, and the choreography was done by Christen Howell. The scenic design was done by Damon Baker and Mary Ann Kelley served as technical advisor. 4. Lutheria Billis struts his stuff for the sailors at a Thanksgiving show. 5. The sailors gape at nurses Kathy Gross and Kristin Potter as they jog by. 6. Bloody Mary tries to coax a sailor to buy a grass skirt.

SADIE HAWKINS Dogpatch will never be the same. LAHS students converged in the auxiliary gym December 4, to celebrate the annual Sadie Hawkins Day Dance sponsored by Youth and Government. The band, The Other Half from Albuquerque, played a wide variety of music including country, punk and Spanish. Besides dancing, the evening included the Lil’ Abner chase. All the boys left their dates and went to hide. Once they were found, the helpless Lil’ Abners were led to the alter to be married to their own Daisy Mae. There was also a contest to see who looked the most like Daisy Mae and Lil’ Abner. Winners were Kathy Gross, Kerry Builta, Damon Ba­ ker, and John Lawrence.

HEART TO HEART The annual Valentine’s Carnation Day saw nearly 2,000 carnations exchanged. Sponsored by the Student Council, the event grows each year. The council first ordered the usual 1,500 and then had to order 500 more. As usual, the flowers arrived 24 hours later than expected, but because of the weekend, all received their carnations on time. Cindy McKay, Paula Eskola, Lee Anderson, Janie Doolen, Student Council members, and Jocelyn Mann enjoy the fragrant flowers.

This was the first year that Los Alamos High School sponsered the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC). Getting organized was a challenge, but under the leadership of Preston Cooper, a Cadet Lieutenant Commander, Chief Petty Officer Reed and Commander Hopkins, both Naval Science Instructors, the NJROTC was a great success. The cadets learned the purpose and history of the United States Navy and practiced their military drills twice a week. The unit formed a color guard, which displayed the flags at athletic events, and a drill team which performed in various public events throughout the year.

The Olions worked hard this year to please their audiences. Their fall play was the musical SOUTI1 PACIFIC. It had a large, talented cast and was a big success. In the winter the Olions brought a scene from ANASTASIA to Festival, a high school theatre festival, where each participating school has a show that is critiqued. The Olions performed the play WHO'S FIFE IS IT AN YWAY? for the spring production. This is a play about an individual who is being kept alive by support systems and who believes he should have the right to die. This year’s officers were Patty Bennett, president; Da­ mon Baker, vice-president; Elyn Harrington, secretary; Kathy Gross, treasurer; and Chrestine Peters, historian. The director was Mr. Kalberg and the technical advisor was Mrs. Kelley.

LETTERMEN’S CLUB To be a member of the Lettermen's Club, a person must have received a let­ ter in a school sponsored varsity sport. The club was led this year by Deana Koepke, president; Carmella Gutierrez, vice-president; and Kelly Stokes, secretary/treasurer. Under these leaders the club played a large part in raising school spirit by selling concessions at ball games, selling Topper towels and cups, and working on Homecoming. The club also sponsored Topper Week, a new ac­ tivity this year. Jerry Brown was the fac­ ulty sponsor. 1. Is this how you got your letters? 2.

DECA The Distributive Education Club of America (DECA) has been hard at work again this year. DECA members sold candy, food, and drinks to hungry and thirsty students in the cafeteria. DECA students earn a credit learning about commerce and economics in the class room, and can earn another by putting their skills to the test at the DECA store. The students who want to can also earn up to two more credits if they have an out-of-school job. DECA officers include Ingrid Maltrude, president, Ron Barnes, vice president, Chrissy Bullock, secretary, Linda Merson, treasurer; and Colleen Flynn, publicity director. DECA is a unique club combining hard work with education.

While the students are in class, they study cooking techniques, commercial cooking equipment, and business skills such as cashiering. The students operate a restaurant on campus: YE OLDE PORTA PUB. The restaurant serves most Wednesdays, 4th and 5th periods

to faculty and guests. The classroom work is also supplimented by catering after school events such as desserts for the Sombrillo Care Facility, All-School Sports Banquet, and cookies for the All-School Christmas social. The HERO students also compete with other EH A/ HERO students throughout the state in such areas as Job Application/Interviews, Real Life Situations, Culinary Arts and Illustrated Talks related to Family Life.

They were Emily Cole, president; Sue Duffy, vicepresident; Lois Ostrenga, secretary; Jackie Hohner, treasurer; Kathy Goldman, historian; Kathy Gross, parliamentarian; and Michelle Rod­ gers, member at large. The members raised $1,200 in candy sales. At Christmas time officers gave out stockings to patients in the hospital. Eebruary 25 and 26 marked the Re­ gional OEA Competition where members participated in office relat­ ed competitions. Qualifiers then went to State Competition, and the high place finishers went on to National Competition in Chicago. The last OEA event of the year was the Awards Banquet in the spring. 1.

Hilltalkers had a very suc­ cessful year, winning some highly prestigious awards. Some of the awards won by the Hilltalkers were a third place at the Trinidad Junior College Speech Tournament in Colorado involving twenty schools, and a second place at the Gallup High School Speech Tournament. A few of the students placed in the State Speech Tournament and did very well. Many of the members were in the de­ bate class and came in some­ times after school to practice their speeches. The success of this year’s club was sum­ marized by Ernie Visarriagas who stated proudly, “ We’ve won more awards this year than the last two years combined.’’ The offi­ cers were Charles Blair, president; Margaret Foley, vice-president; and Mr. Black, club sponsor.

Hilltalker members shown here: Back: Terry Keel, Leslie Henderson, Eric Talley, Todd Zongker, James Riley, and Anne Miranda. Front—Mr. Black, Angie Danen, and Shanna Hudgeons.

VIDEO CLUB Video Club members planned, produced, directed, filmed, edited, and starred in several videotaped shows this year, learning how to use the equipment needed to make either a film or a videotape. The club video taped not only high school events, but also events in other Los Alamos public schools as well as in the community. Club president, Dan Bartholomew, and vice-president, David Carroll, worked hard to get some of the club’s video tapes aired on the Public Access Channel (PAC-8). 1. Video Club members Mike Gordon, Chris Lynch, David Carroll, and Robbie Poore film the Homecoming parade.



The chess team was one of the strongest ever assembled at Los Alamos High School. The members sharpened their skills of the game during practices held twice a week. The team competes in two independent competitions, the Northern Schools Chess League and the state championship. At the time of publication they had a 7-0 record and had defeated last year's second place team in NSCL competition. The team soundly defeated Robertson, who represented the district at state last year. Members include: (back row) Coach Gehre, Andy Bateman, Victor Gibbs, Bill Goldman, David Woodruff, Brian Kingsbury, David Fu, Ehud Gavron, Scott Watson, and Justin Gehre, (front row) Robert Warren, Jim Bryan, and Richard Keel.

YOUTH AND GOVERNMENT Youth and Government is a club that brings students closer to their government. They practice writing bills and then present them at a Model Legislation at the Capitol. Money raisers include putting on Sadie Hawkins and fish sales. This year the guest speakers were senators and represen­ tatives from around the state. The school sponsor was Kay Young. The officers were Pam Farr, president, Lori Brockway, vice president, and Karen Hollabaugh, treasurer.

BUILDING TRADES Building Trades was not just another club; it was a class which a student could take several hours a day, re­ ceiving two to three credits. This special club had the task of building a house from the ground up. Some of the skills learned by students in this club were roofing, surveying, carpentry, drywalling, and framing. Building Trades required more than Just going to the class: it also required hard work, both as a team and as individuals.

Los Alamos had six foreign exchange students this year coming from various countries. Those who knew them, learned about the cultures of their countries and some of their foreign language. The foreign students themselves experienced our culture in depth while perfecting their English skills. The foreign students lived with host fam­ ilies and were given opportunities to travel.



KEY CLUB Key Club is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club and helps out the community. This year Key Club collected for UNICEF, cleaned under the bleachers after football games, sold popcorn for fund raising, and helped with the new Los Alamos Retirement Center. The big fund raiser was the Super Dance to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy. Members earned points by participating in club activities. High point earners attended the Southwestern District Key Club Convention in Phoenix. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officers were DeAnn Simundson, president; Diana Cowan, vicepresident; Lee Anderson, secretary; Laina Naranjo, treasurer; Lisa Blair, special communications chairman; and Kathy Daly, scrap book editor. The school sponsors were Mr. Schacterle and Mrs. Fry. The Kiwanis sponsors were Larry Blair and James Dominic.

Youth LAARC never really got off the ground this year, but the students went ahead with their activities with good organization by class room teacher, Marcy Elliott. The students were in an independent living program based on what they will be doing after high school graduation. They learned every day tasks as well as job training. The group worked packaging food at the Santa Fe New Life Food Co-Op. There was a Janitor training program here at the high school that helped students while others had a newspaper route. There was also a wide range of restaurant training for the students. 1. Eric Engleman, Karen Hagan (Student Aide), Jim Apadoca, Ricky Chiles, and Tim App practice cooking skills. 2.

The marching band began their 8:00-12:00 morning practices two weeks before school started. The first public appearance was the county fair parade. Besides playing at all the home games, the band played in Albuquerque at the Eldorado game. They stayed the night at the Marriot and marched in the State Fair Parade the next morning, earning a rating of 1 (excellent). When the march­ ing season is over, the band is split into two parts: Symphonic Band (the upper, selective band) and Concert Band. The best musicians in the state compose the All-State Band. Mem­ bers of our bands who were selected for the All-State Band are Anne Marie Borch, Suzy Collins, Andrea Hoyt, Rich Dissley, Virginia Hill, Mark Dunn, Carolyn Ford, Bryan Rockwood, John Bartlitt, Carol Stevenson, Chris Hyer, and Paula Gentry. Other events this year were Solo and Ensemble and the Farge Group Festival. The symphonic Band played for commencement. For basketball games, people signed up for Pep Band, which played at all home games. There were also two jazz bands which gave con­ certs periodically and went to festivals. 5. . 7. 8 . 9. 6

The Los Alamos High School’s Games Club had a very hard time this year: imagine having to play games for one whole hour a week. All the members did was play games. The games they played, however, were very complicated and members prid­ ed themselves on mastering the more difficult ones. One game entitled Speed Circuit put the player in the driving seat of a Grand Prix car. The game was so realistic that it encompassed slip streaming (reducing wind friction by driving directly be­ hind another car) and slowing down around turns. The brain­ teasing club was headed by P resident Joseph “ K ille r” Martz and Public Relations Secretary Preston “Coop” Coo­ per. The faculty sponsor was Mr. Bergquist. 110 Clubs

faculty Mrs. Donald Ryan, designer of this year’s LA l.OMA cover, has been working for the Los Alamos Schools for eight years. Mrs. Ryan was one of the 87 people who graduated from L.AHS in 1953. During high school she was a cheerleader and was the 1952 Homecoming Queen. This attractive woman can be found working in the Central Media Center doing creative projects for the administrators, teachers and students. Her projects range from laminating to creating athletic awards, graduation and baccalaureate programs, booklet covers, post­ ers and lettering. The biggest change in LAHS that Mrs. Ryan has noticed is a big decrease in school spirit though she added that "there is a much bigger opportunity for students to be individuals.”

A vacation to Kenya in the summer of 1981 turned out to be terrorizing experience for Mrs. Tess Church. She was filming animals in Kenya when she found herself in an attempted overthrow of the existing government. Mrs. Church heard only snatches of information about a coup, but as their bus entered Nairobi, the first evidence of the reality was a car shot up at an intersection. Next they were stopped by a very young man with a machine gun and all their pass­ ports and luggage was checked. The hotel they were to stay in was riddled with bullet holes and the doors were smashed in. There was little food and that night the travelers slept with their clothes on. At one point all the guests were put into the hallway because snippers were taking random shots through the windows. The following morning there was even less food, but ironically enough there were still fresh flowers. Soon soldiers arrived and everyone was ordered to put his hands on his head. For the next two hours Mrs. Church and her fellow tourists were held at gun point while a complete search of the hotel was done. Once this was completed, they were released. The group was stopped and held at gun point once more before leaving Nairobi, but this time they were not detained long. There was visible relief after the final luggage search and the bus load of innocent people were on their way out of the battle filled area. Mrs. Church caught the first plane home, but even now she says it bothers her to talk about it, because it was truly terrorizing.



files “May I go to the nurse?” Many students repeat this question each day every period in search of a kleenex, for removal of a splinter, for a jammed knuckle. Though these may not sound overly serious, our nurse, Mrs. Edie Rowen, is one of the most indispensible people on our campus. And when the problem is our own it is serious. She is, in a sense, a mother away from home, a wise counselor, and a shrewd observer of the frailties of being a student. Where most teachers are responsible for about a hundred and twenty students throughout a year, Mrs. Rowen looks after 1100 plus staff. Her job includes assessing true illnesses and Injuries, health counseling, diets, emotional stress problems, vision, hearing, scoliosis, blood pressure screenings, safety and health environment, and contagious and infectious disease control just to name a few. One day this year every bed in the office was full with two students sharing one, making her office one of the most used areas in the school. Once a few years ago, a student put a hand through a glass window and severed an artery. Without her knowledge and Immediate assistance, the student could have bled to death. Another time she received a phone call from a school associated person with an ailment at 2 a.m. Says Mrs. Rowen “My goal is to be of help to people” and so she does. We appreciate you, Mrs. Rowen, for all the lunches you never get to finish, for the coffee turned cold, and for all the time you give to us. Czech born Louie Cernicek came to the United States as a refugee from Czechoslovakia. As a junior high school student in Nazi-occupied Czechslovakia, he was expelled from school because of political activities. That prompted him to join the Czech underground against the Nazis. Four years later he was sent to a slave labor camp In what is now East Germany. During a bombardment he escaped from there, going back to his underground activities. After one of these actions, he was taken prisoner and sent to a concentration camp. In the confusion that ensued after an attempt on Hitler’s life, he was released by mistake. The rest of the war he spent participating in military operations, sabotage, and intelligence. After the end of the war in 1945, he went back to school. In 1948 the Communists staged a take over of Czechoslovakia and he went back into the underground to combat the new regine. After a few unsuccessful attempts to deal with the new regine, he was denounced as an enemy of the state and sentenced to hard labor in the coal mines. He escaped and spent the next two years in prisons and refugee camps in Austria, Germany, and Italy, And so after surviving two Nazi concentration camps, two Austrian prisons and 17 refugee camps and labor camps, he arrived In the United States In 1950. In the United States, he received a scholarship from the University of Chicago where he received an M.A. in social sciences and in 1954 he came to Los Alamos to teach, something he has devoted himself to for the past 28 years. During this time he also earned a PhD from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. He now teaches various levels of German, Russian and French. When he first came to LAHS, he taught World History, American Literature, political science and English before he began to organize the Foreign Language Department, His knowledge of some 16 languages has been put to good use in his role as a consultant to LANL. Twenty-eight years ago he began talking soccer to students who had little understanding of anything but American football. He established teams whose opponents were private schools and colleges. Finally, only seven years ago he began a formal soccer program at LAHS that has blossomed into teams, both boys’ and girls’, that are respected state wide. He Is one of the founders of the New Mexico High School Soccer League and his 1977 team won the state championship. Mr. Cernicek also established the Ski Club and the Chess Club. He was a primary force in organizing New Mexico Chess along the lines of athletic competition, competing on a district as well as on a state basis. His chess teams won the state championships in 1969 and 1979. To have a teacher like Mr. Cernicek on our staff is a tribute to our school; to be one of his students is a privilege. 117

ADMINISTRATION “This year’s Los Alamos High School student shows an enthusiasm and a school spirit that is outstand­ ing. With this calibre of student at our high school, I’m expecting many to excel in their area of interest, whether it is academic or in some extracurricular activity.”

ENGLISH Due to the change in entrance requirements at the University of New Mexico the English department has worked on changing classes. UNM now requires more composition background for its incoming students and also requires the word “com­ position” to be in the class title. As a result of this the English department is looking at combining some classes, especially the 110 and 112 English courses to give more composition. Staff cutbacks in the department also has department heads worried. The cutbacks are largely due to a drop in enrollment and changing class loads. Hopefully though, the cutbacks may be taken care of by normal attrition, retirements and resignations. ...

Plans for the arrival of the freshman class also has the English department planning. A major restructuring of classes is expected when the freshmen arrive. Raggedy “Gooley” was one of the FEW teachers who dressed up for Halloween. And we salute all those who did.

Foreign language may be playing a greater role in the high school soon. Many colleges around the country, including our own University of New Mexico, are starting to require at least two years of a foreign language as a prerequisite to enrollment. As a result of this, enrollment in the depart­ ment is expected to go up. The addition of the freshman class in the future will also contribute to the revitalization of the department. The reasons for the increase in language requirements can be seen in foreign affairs. The U.S. is falling far behind in the number of people who can speak a foreign language, and the military and State Depart­ ment are feeling the effects. “No, Mr. Cernicek. This really is a German class.

Book Banning “Fahrenheit 451 Revisited” was a popular theme this year with various books ranging from classics to dictionaries being banned right and left by people fearful of depraving the students’ intellect and morality. THE FIXER by Bernard Malamud, SLAUGHTER HOUSE FIVE by Kurt Vonnegut, BLACK BOY by Richard Wright, and Eldridge Cleaver’s SOUL ON ICE were among the books involved in the New York Vs. Pica case. The board of education wanted these books removed from the school system on the grounds that they were “mentally dangerous.” Steven Pico, a student, filed the suit and four years later the case appeared in court. Since then the government has widely accepted the idea that communities running their own schools, thus making banning a local issue. This year the Carlsbad, New Mexico, parents had the WEBSTER’S NEW COLLEGIATE DICTIONARY removed from their junior high school. HUCKLEBERRY FINN is another book that has come under close scrutiny recently. It is a shame that such a great book and such a great writer as Mark Twain should be so gravely misunderstood. Perhaps next will go the Tarzan stories because he and Jane are not married and live together; perhaps it will be Donald Duck because he wears no pants. One thing sure, it is likely the aformentioned books will become the hottest selling narratives on the market and may lead to tremendous advancements in the vocabulary and reading backgrounds of kids everywhere.



SCIENCE DEPARTMENT This was a quiet year for the science department, but like other departments, plans are being made for the future. The science department hopes to gain wider use of the computer in B-wing once the math department receives the new equipment. The computers will be a great help say teachers within the department, especially in the chemistry and physics classes. Plans arc being made for the coming of the freshmen and many new classes may be added. The department hopes to add more chemistry and life science courses. To do this the department will have to hire three more teachers. And like the other departments, science hopes to add another required lab course.


Along with these changes, the high school also hopes to create a more cohesive program with the junior highs. This may be done by eliminating the “mini” courses of astronomy, oceanography, and others on the junior high level. To replace these, there would be classes more in line with the prerequisites for the high school science courses.

For the math department this was a slim year. According to Cathy Strong, department head, the math department was lucky to be fully staffed this year. This was largely due to the high number of mathematicians going into industry, with its larger paychecks, rather than into teaching. The number of high school teachers moving to the lab was also a problem for the department. “We are lucky to have the people we do,” said Strong, “They’re very hard working.” There was one bright spot for the department, though; they expected to receive a shipment of Apple computers by the end of the year. Mrs. Strong was very excited about this prospect, because the department was forced to turn away a full forty students from computer classes this year for lack of space. Mrs. Strong also announced some possible plans for changing the computer classes to specific language classes for Pascal, Fortran, and Basic.

WORLD EVENTS BRITAIN: In April of 1982, Argentine armed forces surrendered to the British armed forces at Port Stanley in the Faulkland Islands. The surrender ended three months of occupation of the Faulkland Islands by Argentina and three months of war between those two nations. Both sides saw a number of their warships sunk. But the end of the war did not end the dispute between Britain and Argentina over who should have the administration of those South Atlantic Islands. Less than a year after Diana Spencer was married to Prince Charles of England, Princess Di gave birth to a son. Prince William of Wales; William is now second in line to the throne of England. POLAND: Lech Walesa, leader of Poland’s Solidarity Union, was released from a year in prison by the martial law government of General Juruselski. Solidarity had been outlawed and Walesa was warned not to promote any resistance to the communist governed Polish government, SW'EDEN: Twice in the last twelve months a Russian submarine has penetrated Swedish coastal waters near secret naval installations. During the first incident the Russian submarine was forced to surface and lengthy negotiations were held before the Swedish navy released the Russian submarine. UNITED STATES: In October of 1982, the U.S. lifted the sanctions it had imposed on European and multinational companies helping build a gas pipeline from Russia to Western Europe, This pipeline will eventually supply Western Europe with much needed natural gas. The American government opposed the pipeline be­ cause it would make Europe more dependent on Ru,ssia. The sanctions were originally imposed as a result of Russia’s treatment of the Poles. RUSSIA: Leonid Brezhnev, Soviet President, died in November of 1982 after years of poor health. Upire Andropov, his successor, was cordial in greeting U.S. Sec­ retary of State George Shultz in Moscow for Brezhnev’s funeral. This may be a sign that Russia is interested in better relations with the U.S, MIDDLE EAST: In October 2, 1982, a final cease-fire took place in Beirut, Lebanon. Israel had invaded Lebanon to destroy the forces at the Palestinian Liberation Organization, an organization whose objective was to find a state of Palestinian Arabs inside Israel, Israel conquered half of Lebanon including its capital, Beirut. Soon after, the president of Lebanon was assassinated. Israel forces immediately occupied all of Beirut. Lebanese citizens who called themselves Christians then car­ ried out a massacre of Lebanese Arabs in two camps in Beirut. The Israel government is now carrying out an investigation of the role of Israel officials in the massa­ cre.

MUSIC The music department was greatly encouraged by a new appropriation of $21,000 to help finance their activities. The money was used for fees, housing, and transporation for All-State, Solo and Ensemble, Football games, the State Fair Parade, and the stage band trip to West Mesa. A large portion went to the orchestra’s tour. They went to Corpus Christi to compete in the Buccaneer Music Festival.

SOCIAL STUDIES The history department is looking forward to the possible addition of new classes to its curriculum. An increase in interest and the quality of students in the advanced classes has encouraged speculation about adding more electives like European history. The nature of such classes would be dictated by student interest and the availability of teachers. With the coming of the freshman class to the high school the number of required credits may jump to twenty-two or twenty-four. With this increase the history department hopes to revise its present program. This referbishment would include a review of Cultures IV and V and the possible addition of a third required year of history.

BUSINESS Enrollment in the business department shot up this year. This was despite the fact that the number of classes was decreased. Lucy Thomas, team leader, attributed this to the fact that students were realizing the value of a business education on both a personal and career level. Students were being drawn heavily to the department’s typing classes. In these classes, students learned very valuable skills of resume writing, writing business letters and proof reading. The vocational classes. Office Education, and Marketing and Distributive Education, were also enjoying a good enrollment. These classes taught office and sales skills. Both were aimed at students who were interested in going into business as a career. Hopefully, the typing classes will expand to include word processing and microcomputers. Mrs. Ross disciplines Chris Hertrich with a friendly twist of the neck.

The United States of America has been going bankrupt for the past fifty years. The reason for this state of affairs lies in its economic policy, which has tended to overtax middle and upper income Americans in order to provide give-away programs which supposedly help the poor. President Reagan, through the introduction of “ Reaganomics,” hopes to reverse this trend. By introducing a tax policy which permits fewer encumbrances on the majority of Americans, more money will be left for the less fortunate, who will ultimately prosper from Reaganomics.

CON For over fifty years, the United States of America has enjoyed a higher standard of living than any other country in the world. One reason for this wealth of riches can be found in the American attitude toward economics. In short, the United States has not turned its back on its poor or its needy, rather, it has helped them to prosper. What has come to be known as “ Reaganomics” represents a challenge to the basic economic planning policy of the past fifty years. Through the implementation of policies which would permit fewer taxes on the wealthy. President Reagan hopes to bring about greater spending power among the majority of Americans. This plan won’t work because the poor will become poorer, and the rich will become richer because there will be fewer tax dollars to spend.



INDUSTRIAL ARTS . The Industrial Arts department suffered with the strains of shifting class loads and low enrollment. Teachers within the department were perplexed by the drop in enrollment. The field of industrial arts, they claim, is the best field of employment these days. When the freshmen reach the high school the department hopes that some of these problems will be alleviated. Department heads hope that the addition of the freshmen will allow them to add a woodshop, hire more teachers, and make some curriculum changes.

CABLE TV Over the past several years American cable TV has grown from a group of small cable companies into a nationwide network serving thirty-four percent of the households in the U.S. It is now possible to watch shows such as movies, sports, or news from across the country whenever one wishes. And the growth of the cable network shows no signs of slowing. Experts are heralding the advent of a new era in communication which will revolutionize the industry. This view is by no means universal. Indeed some say that cable TV is going through extreme growing pains. The cable TV network began with several small cable companies which serviced remote towns where it was previously impossible to receive television conventionally. From these roots the cable network grew explosively into what it is today. The reason for this period of explosive growth is due mainly to the obvious advantages it held over conventional TV. With cable TV, it is possible to receive a much larger number of programs in addition to specialized channels which show religious programs, fine arts, movies, or sports. Experts are also predicting great advances in the future of cable TV, with the addition of educational programs and the expansion of existing channels. In the fu­ ture it may be possible to have home security systems using cable, television lines to connect each house to a community system, and stay at home education. Experts are hoping that 108 and even 300 channel systems may soon be put into use. Others have not painted such a rosy picture for cable TV. Detractors say that cable TV rarely offers anything exceptional that cannot be found on the other free channels. In fact cable TV is being faced with widespread dissatisfaction demonstrated by one out of every two subscribers dropping their subscription in a year. Re­ ligious groups are also working for legislation to govern such stations as Eros and the Playboy channel which often feature erotic shows. Cable officials argue that viewers need not subscribed to such stations if they do not wish to. The facts are plain, say many officials, that regardless of the problems that cable TV is now experiencing it is very likely that it is here to stay as the rapid climb in subscription would seem to attest. If this is true it would certainly paint a bleak picture for the present public networks CBS, NBC, and ABC.

files “ It’s cheaper than gas,” said Mike Pruitt when asked about his skating, “it’s very exciting and a challenge, too.’’ he added. Mike began skating four years ago and since then he has skated in San Diego and Albuquer­ que. During warm weather he skates to and from school. He sometimes feels out of place street skating in Los Alamos “because it’s just not the ‘in’ thing to do around here. Sometimes the criticism gets to me, but it’s not going to make me stop skating.’’ Mike is a familiar figure skating around our campus, and he does add color to the routine. Ann Ebaugh began shooting when she was eleven. She began shooting competitively within a year and has since moved into an expert rating. She is now working for Distinguished Expert. At 14 whe began shooting in 3 position matches, and in the summer of 1981 she represented New Mexico in the small bore rifle match­ es in Camp Perry, Ohio. Last winter Anne attended the New Mexico State Junior Olympic Shooting Camp. Now she is competing in high power rifle matches with an M-14. “ 1went to the nationals again, and did better than I had last time.” she said. “ It’s really an exciting experience and I’m planning to go back again.”

ELECTION ’82 Widespread unemployment in the United States, over ten percent in November, had a big impact on general election ’82. President Reagan, in his first two years in office, had instituted policies to reduce all government spending except for defense and to reduce taxes. While these polices, called Reganomics, helped reduce inflation, they also increased unemployment. The result of these policies was felt in the election in which the Democrats gained 26 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Democrats lost no seats in the Senate, although many more Democratic than Republican seats were at stake. The hottest, most costly Senate race in the nation was in California, pairing controversial Democratic Governor Jerry Brown against Republican Mayor Pete Wilson of San Diego. Brown had come from 22 points behind in the pre-election polls to make it a close race, but Wilson won by a narrow margin. As one observer put it, “Californians have a love-hate rela­ tionship with Jerry Brown”. New Mexico arch conservative Senator Harrison Schmitt was defeated by the liberal State Attorney General Jeff Bingaman. The Democrats gained new governorships, and took over the midwest. Sagging farm prices, a dismal auto industry, and general economic malaise were blamed on GOP leaders. This election gave the midwest a chance to change. The 1982 election was the most costly election yet. It will cost the taxpayers a record 102 million dollars, up from the 49 million as recently as 1978. The impact of the 82 election on national policy will be a small drift leftward. Reaganomics was not repudiated, but it was not endorsed either. What does this say about Reaganomics?

sports Junior Gretchen Torres has been playing tennis for six years and has been on the varsity since the eighth grade. In nineth and tenth grades she played doubles matches, but this year she played singles, where she was ranked number 1 in District lAAAA and number 2 for Class AAA A. However, Gretchen is not committed to school tennis only. Last summer she played in the United States Tennis Association where she earned the number 1 ranking in the 16 and under age group for singles in New Mexico. She went to play in the Southwest Closed Tennis Tournament and reached the quarterfinals. Gretchen also became a member of the Whiteman Cup Team. Kevin Smale was just one of our fine soccer players. A member of the organization since junior high, Kevin started when he was in grade school and since then has climbed the ladder to success. He was a member of the J.V. as an eighth grader and made the Varsity as a freshman. As a senior, Kevin was named to the All-State Tournament Team for his excellence In the field. Although Kevin plays soccer, he is also a basketball player.

With his smooth release, Scott Hayden led the Junior Varsity Team to an 182 season. As a senior, the 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;3" Hayden has added an element of silent scoring and rebounding to a District Champion Team. Many times he was the high point man, scoring 20 points or more. Raenna Sharp began swimming in sixth grade and is now a very powerful force on the Los Alamos swim team. Raenna, a junior, made the swim team in nineth grade. In tenth grade she ranked 1st in state in the lOOM breast stroke with a time of 110.8 seconds. She was also ranked 11th in the 50M free-style. She is the team captain of a nine member team. Her favorite events are the SOM and lOOM free-style and the lOOM breast stroke.

As a senior she is the highest scorer on the Hilltopper team, averaging 16 points a game. She was a co-captain for the 1982-83 season. Emily credits a great deal of her success to Coach Bill Smith and Coach Chuck Garret for teaching her a lot. She was named to the All-District, and All-State Teams, and will play in the North/South basket­ ball game.

6. Greg Storm excells in two sports. He has played baseball since little league, playing first base or catch­ ing. He made the high school base­ ball team as a sophomore, junior, and senior. As a basketball player Greg has scored 346 points, had 147 rebounds as of February’s to­ tals.

During the summer they had car washes, sold snow-cones and held a raffle to raise money. They cheered at pep rallies, cheered at games and helped with homecoming. They also gave out trophies and helped with the home cross country meet. At the first pep rally this year when they were introduced to the student body, they mistimed in cartwheels and several hit the deck. Perhaps this helped endear this group to the student body. 1.

TOPPERS STRESS UNITY The Varsity Football squad, coached by Tom Brown was faced with a year of injuries, frustration of defeat and controversy over the athletic code. The team ended with 27 players and a 2-8 record. The word that described the Topper defense this year was â&#x20AC;&#x153;awesomeâ&#x20AC;? . Anchored by Don Casias, Paul Virchow, and Steve Trujillo, our defense held opposing offensive units until its members became weary from almost continuous play.

WE BEAT’M TO THE PIT The “ District Champs” (the first time since 1976) were the most talented squad to come from Los Alamos in a long time. In fact, this team was a coach’s dream. No single person stoled the show which may account for their success. The re­ bounding of Carlos Woodson, Dan Sagado, and Mark Gosling was overwhelming to smaller teams. While opponents tried to shut down Greg Storm’s dead aim, Scott Hayden took over with his smooth and silent shooting. Eric Morse, Ross O’Dell, and Kevin Smale played their spots well and with speed. This was a team which gave LAHS many thrills and a new sense of pride. They ended their season one bucket short of the state Championship. 1. Carlos brings it home. 2. The Hilltopper Varsity Basketball Team: (front) Phil Polzer, Dan Wilson, Eric Morse, Ross O’Dell, and man­ ager, Ethan Honnell. (back) Assistant Coach Jerry Brown, David Rhodes, Kevin Smale, Carlos Woodson, Mark Gosling, Dan Salgado, Scott Hayden, Greg Storm, James Chaves, Assistant Coach Joe Liestikow, and Head Coach Bill Smith. 3. Greg “the silk” smoothly shoots for another two points. 4. Ross O’Dell races past his man. 5. Dan Salgado dunks two 6. Eric Morse controls the offense. 7. Coach Smith smiles over his championship.

SHOT TO THE TOP The team this year, like last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, was a well-balanced group with a lot of depth. Second year coach Chuck Garrett prided himself on having a mobile team and on being able to play most of the girls in each game. The quickness of Kelly Stokes, Ann Cernicek, and Vanessa Lillberg, combined with the rebounding ability of Sheri Groff, Annette Stephens, Anne Friar, and Susan Gregory, made it very difficult for opposing teams to score. Due to the scoring ability of Emily Honnell and Sandy Stephens, the versatility of Melanie Anderson, and the assists by Chris Ladish and Deana Koepke, the Toppers were rated as one of the top five teams throughout the season. The girls grabbed the District 1AAAA Championship and took fourth in the State Tournament. 1. Melanie Anderson dribbles down court. 2. Chris Ladish drives for two more points. 3. Kelly Stokes and Shelly Stokes (#30) go for the loose ball. 4.

A lot of talent helped the J.V. girls have an impressive season. Under first year coach Theresa Redman the team worked hard towards their goal. Scoring was led by Monica Kjellman, Pan Candeer, Nancy Foley, and Tori Sargent. The players were able to gain experience and improve their skills. 1. Glenda Cassidy, up for two! 2. The 1982-83 Hilltopper Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Junior Varsity Basketball Team included (front row) GiGi Jones, Cindy Barr, Lisa Harshman, Agnes Vallejos and Julie Virchow.

LA LOMA STAFF The 1982-83 school year was a year to be remembered, and we hope that this yearbook has captured some of those memories. We also hope that you will enjoy this book as much as we enjoyed making it. We would like to thank Miss Reglien, the staff, and photographers for all their time and effort in putting together this book. Rachel Mischke Patti Travis 1982-1983 La Loma Editors

2. DeAnn Simundson, Features: Showed true devotion by hobbling to the typing room with a broken leg. 3. Melanie Anderson, Underclassman: La Loma’s own private fashion consultant. 4. Liz Beyers, Underclassman: La Loma’s most dedicated worker.

5. Pam Farr, Photographer: Being the wild and crazy gal she is, she thought of our theme. 6. David Schnurr, Photographer: Took a lot of pictures, but we don’t have any evidence. 7. Joe Luke, Photographer and Sports: Always there for the deadlines, printing until the last minute.



I. Patti Travis, Editor: La Loma’s fearless or fearsome leader.

8. Ann Cernicek, Sports: The only junior on the staff, and we were glad to have her.

9. Rachel Mischke, Copy Editor: Without Rachel this elass would not have been an English elass.

10. Shawn Burns, Faculty: The Clark Kent of the Yearbook. 11. Marcia Cochran, Seniors: Spearheaded the Senior Section. 12. Michelle Montgomery, Seniors: Very quiet but diligent.

13. Andy Bateman, Clubs: Stopped at nothing in his efforts to . . . amuse us? 14. Diana Brown, Clubs: Dynamite comes in small packages. 15. Miss Reglien, Advisor: The main force behind this book. 16.
