"Describe four years of your life in 400 words or less." This is an assignment that no teacher, no matter how bad, ugly or virtually vicious he is, will require a student to write about. The reason is, it's impossible to express all the fear, excitement, surprise, sadness and happiness that we've felt. Change becomes the obvious key word to our high school experience. From "teeny hoppers" to "legal" adults, we've changed. I can't say I'm anxious to leave some true friendships behind, but I can't say I'd do it all over again either. Mixed emotionsfeelings nuuiing all over the place. We all look forward with conscious anticipation, trying not to look back. How can we not though? How can we know if it's all uphill / downhill from here? We don't. For many of us, now is the time to make it or break it on our own. Everyone gets a fresh start. But will you be higher or

lower, popular or lonely, friendly or conceited? How do you see yourself, the world, life? Any bitterness is gone now. Everyone is instead concentrating on only what he can retain from Maine South: the friends, the fun, the parties. We all march towards our graduation commencement confident that we are "well known" to our classmates. Then, we realize just how many faces are strange to us' Then we realize how many people we don't know, how much farther we have to go, and how much we don't want to let go. In spite of all the library systems, the closed campus, the non-smoking regulations and the study halls, we all came out all right. We grew into Maine South as we each grew up. Maybe all our disagreements and fervent complaining stemmed from a genuine concern about our school and our relation with it. Taking everything into consideration, I'll miss Maine South, and I thank it for letting me become a part of it.

I hereby be . . . (continued from page 2) rules on how to make a successful pyramid and at the same time keep all of the teeth in your mouth. We the "Back-Row" of A-223 being of prejudiced mind and ethnic body, do hereby will to Mr. "Bob Hope" Morris, the "BackRow." We leave him our suburbia games for his next dinner party, 33 candles for his birthday cake and a one-way ticket to Ellis Island. Also we include a set of his favorite eighttrack tapes; "The Best of the Chicanes, Mark Gibski Live, 201 Questions You Never Thought of Asking by Kathy Kadlec, Fred Koramatsu Singing Four Foot Five, Slanty Eyes." Lastly, we leave you, Mr. Morris, with the last "Back-Row" quote, "In this entire mess only the 'Back-Row' has class." I, Kim Kumiega, being of pounding temples (after typing all these wills), and exhausted fingers, do hereby bequeath to Russ Skiba, all the "fun" I've had with Southwords this year. To Julie Keller, luck with Russ, Chris, John and Dan at the printer's next year. To John Peters, reporters who continually ask, "What should I write about?" To Chris Sopata, the hope that you'll do less talking (about Hawk, O.C. etc.) and more working. To Dan, prayers. To all the reporters, I leave the big booming metropolis of Maine South to identify, predict, decide and act on. To Russ, the wish that somebody steals your "park bench." Remember our motto: We're no. 3, we don't try at all. We, the fearsome foursome (Gibs, Loads, Skull, and Vinops) of Mr. Elliot's final Calculus class, being of integral minds and differential bodies, do bequeath to next year's B.C. saps, our heartfelt sympathy. Due to the loss of Mr. Elliott as professor of Calculus, we feel it is our duty to equip you with the necessary tools, such as a handy fly swatter, a telescope, and a hand wave for when you're in trouble. But for times of real distress, remember our motto, "Hey Day, wait for t"

We the Honorable Class of 1977 Do . . .

I, Sue Brey, being of sound mind but somewhat questionable body, do hereby bequeath to Mrs. Seller's 1st period 16" softball class, a medal of honor for putting up with my Irish temper when I was mistakenly called out by my blind team members. To Mr. Doherty of 3rd period Indiv. Reading, Patty Enans and I leave our hysterical laughter from the back of the room and a theme on "How to Write a Theme About a Book You Never Read."

To Sue McMahon, my somewhat faithful boyfriend, who is so sure he loves her and the hope that maybe she'll make the tennis team next year. Good luck. Sue! To Cindy Schulthesz and Debbie Eckel, all our memorable conversations of the above and the book "101 Ways To Argue with Your Brother and Win!" To Mr. Martello and my Drama class, my apologies for all my tennis poems, jokes, stories and monologues with the hope that some future tennis player can make better use of them than I did. To my tennis coach. Miss Albrecht, deep gratitude and thanks for helping me get my serve out of the net and the appreciation I have for her that she knew my name that day in the parking lot. To Mary Frick, my tennis shoes and socks, and the hope that she can turn our freshman team into one that really knows how to party. To Miss Voelz, my favorite gym teacher, my most recent cut slip, upstairs in my underwear drawer next to the socks. Also a recording of her voice yelling, "Clump! Clump!" Thanks. I leave to Mr. Heerman's daddy whose witty sayings he left to his son will follow me all the days of my life. "You can't fall off the bed if you're already on the floor." And "Talk's cheap; it
takes money to buy whiskey. " (I never quite got that one, not that I got the others.) To Mrs. Heerman, my sympathy. Can you imagine how many of daddy's sayings she must know. And in conclusion, to Maine South, as Mr. Heerman (not his father) says, "Where learning and fun are one," I just simply LEAVE. I, Laura Keim. being of cluttered mind and cushy tush, do hereby bequeath the foUowong: one highly polished monkey call to Miss Albrecht, who has enthusiastically demonstrated her love for the wild. A "checkerboard" complete with checkers to enlighten Mr. Heuman's weekends. I will my stretching rack to Nancy Armstrong in hope that someday she'll be able to reach the water fountain in the drama wing. To my dearest Mr. Fleechsig, one tribe of restless natives, and a 20 lb. chocolate Easter bunny for his sweet tooth. To Mrs. Dieter, my brief-form bingo card, a folder of unmailables and a recording of Dee Binetti and I. I'm also leaving a prerecorded version of "Don't touch that knob" to Mr. LaFruit. And to my buddy, Linda Wood, the responsibility of distributing my highly resonant alto vocal cords. We, Mary Pat McReynolds and Kathy Vernon, being of somewhat sound minds and forget the bodies, do hereby leave to a certain Mr. Mortimer Igelman, "our favorite French teacher," the Petit Prince and all his planets (puppet included). Also all of your so called "easy" tests accompanied by that enriching French classical music that inspired "who knows what" throughout the year. And to our dear ex-math teacher, Mr. 0. (Olson), all the sines and cosines that we never understood. We also leave the memories of last year's great 9th period math class that was always so much fun (even in Chinese). Take care Mr. 0., we'll all miss you. And to all the incoming freshmen, our library cards and all the forged passes plus the pain and suffering of their next four years. To the actual school, nothing but our lockers and whatever is left behind in them. We, Betty Solon and Kathy Wieland, being of satarized minds and humorous bodies, do hereby bestow unto Mr. L. Skinner (our facetious English teacher), the following incongruities: Betty's baiting, Kathy's capriciousness, Bob's Bible, Dan's dictionary of Jap Jokes, Gary's guffaws and finally a soundproof back doors, and the general Monomania of the class that keeps Miss Carswell peeking. We, Lina Frey and Kathy Wieland, being of over "boyled" minds and underbaked bodies do hereby bequeath unto Terri

bases in the past four years, has scored one of leading run scorers and is one of the top R.B.I, averages. Boy's athlete of the year. Tim McNamara has had an outstanding high school career. One of the Hawk's most dependable runner, Tim lead this year's two mile relay to a third place at the state meet this season. McNamara also won the conference mile event this season.
