In Passing The time that we met was a casual day. I saw you aga in a nd knew I was lost. No I know , I should have been different. But, it's a little late for regret or reform. I think of you often and hop e we will meet again. Ami e Bever '87

You are a novel. My lind fatigues frol the cOlplexity of your Nords. MV eyes ache frol frequent reading. My arDS groN Neak frol your Neight; and yet, I do not put you dONn. Betause, your plot portrays the reality I seek, and your Nords possess truths that give Ie passage to Iyself. You are a painting. Your colors are brilliant, your depth - illeasurable, your for.s - a laster Nork.I

.iII becole the patron of your art, and if I cannot attain you, resolve Iyself - forever captivated. You are a sYlphony. I stri ve to step inside your lood and pull it around Ie until I Hear, feel nothi ng else. You fill Iy head with latchless harlonies, and your song is Iy vision. You are a ballet I rehearse all Iy life to perforl. I cannot change a single attitude. You are precisely choreographed.I tay

strain every luscle to be oorthy of your graceful strength, but I oi 11aelorize your sequence

with Iy soul.

Footprints dying in wet sand they fall bthind I walk with someone different We both do Other times pushed out of my mind How can she .be so kind? This empty hand Full of white sand (and you) A new beginning? I cannot hope. Back in time - in space (collisium in the sand) To watch the tears fall from her face She is the play, the ac tress, the script Ancient temple rituals slow and direct. Two empty hands touch and say goodnight. Keith Coker '85

PURE LOGIC I spoke to the wo~ld today, With its f~ifndly, g~een field, And w~inkled, old mountains Rising like silent sentinels of time, Lifting thei~ f~osty head, Above the misty clouds.I told the world how much I loved it and how muchI cherished its willingness To p~ovide me with all things Necessary fo~ life and happiness, Even in the wo~st of times.

I even told the wo~ld how I would protect it, how I would s.ek to improve it

And help to make it a place Where eVt~y person with a d~eam Could find the hidden key to happiness. Then I went out And made anothe~ payment On a MEGA BIJ1B GeneSto~y

People, people, everywhere and not a one can think Ponder, ponder all the time as if knowledge was a drink Swallow, swallow al l you can until your soul does sink You've begun to see the 1 ight not Intell igence, just the brink


Lights from above Lights from below Will we learn or never know? Look ahead and Look behind Search until YOU fill your mind. What do you search for seeking man? Mystic matter from a magic land? No, I say, search not for that Forget your riches and your silken hat Come with me, now taKe my hand. I can take yOU to a better land. Lights from above Lights from below Come with me and feel the show Look ahead and Look behind For I am Intelligence, let me fill your mind. Jim Fairfield '85

The following several pages indicate the a Hects of AP courses on stUdents and teachers aliKe. One of the types of questions on the AP American History exam is called a Document Based Question CDBG>. Students are asKed to read several documents and then combining the use of the documents and their own Knowledge of the period to write an essay response to the question. Following last year's APAH e xam the students made up their own DBQ test and submitted it to me to answer. Th e first several pages contain the documents and the last several are my response. All students referred to i'n the response are alive and well and presently awaiting graduation from BHS. All references to them are based on fact and not the fiction that it may appear. Document Based Question APAH e:XAM 1984 By the end of the school year most AP History s tudents are totally insane. e:valuate this statement using outside information ~ the following documents. TaKe into account the actions of this year's classes. rmpres,;i ons ' 85
