The Woodrow Wilson Rampages Dedication is an ultimate honor
to an individual who has served Woodrow Wilson High School to
the best of his ability with loyalty, sincerity, and dedication.
Although many members of the Woodrow Wilson Faculty are
deserving of such an honor, the 1976-1977 Yearbook Staff has
dedicated this edition of Rampages to Mr. James Mannion, assis­
tant principal of Woodrow Wilson High School, for his integrity
and leadership. Woodrow Wilson has over 2100 students en­
rolled. Mr. Mannion's main job is to schedule each of these
students into seven classes each. In doing this, Mr. Mannion
must consider the students personal preferences, while also con­
sidering the student's needs and necessities. Mr. Mannion does
this and countless other duties behind the scenes and gets the job
done. Mr. Mannion also appears at many school functions such
as dances, football games and other extra-curricular activities. Mr.
Mannion, the 1976-1977 Yearbook Staff would formally like to
thank you for your hard work, dedication, and sincere efforts for
the betterment of Wilson.


It's 8:00 a.m. at Wilson and the school day begins with morn­
ing announcements. Many students are already busy doing
homework from the night before, while others are struggling
to keep their eyes open. Everyone is anxiously awaiting to hear
the bell so they can begin A period, and so the day begins, as it
will throughout the school year, with students moving lazily
through the halls from one class to another. While in class,
•students find there are many challenges and learning situa­
tions to be faced. Each classroom offers varied experiences for
each student. Whether it be an art class or history class, the
students are involved and practice participating in the days
activities. Each one will learn at least one interesting or new
fact during the school day. We hope all students will take
advantage of the opportunities presented to them in classes at



This year's Warm Up Rally marked the "kick­
off" of one of the most promising football
seasons Wilson has had, and promoted school
spirit in Wilson to the highest level ever. This
event was originally scheduled for Thursday
evening, September 16, 1976, but was post­
poned to September 23, 1976 because of rain.
Beginning in Henry C. Morgan Stadium with
the half-time presentation of the award-win­
ning Golden Rams Marching Band, the Warm
Up Rally got under way. The cheerleaders got
the crowd in the mood with their new cheers
that were to be used throughout the season,
and the Warm Up gathering then moved in a
group to the bonfire site, which was located
this year on the football team's practice field
behind Wilson. As the bonfire ceremony con­
cluded, the gym became the final focus of at­
tention for the evening: the annual Warm Up
Dance began. After the evening was over, the
curiosity and enthusiasm of the new freshmen
class was aroused, and the spirit of Wilson
was ignited in a year that will long be remem­






GET THE MESSAGE? Now you can voice your
opinion, mention your favorite rock group, bar,
school, club, store, car, and motorcycle, and liter­
ally contact thousands. The fastest means of
communication was once a telegram, then a tele­
phone and now the telet-shirt. Many advertisers
resort to billboards, radio and television commer­
cials. Stores depend on newspaper ads with sea­
sonal and manager sales (in case anyone was
interested in buying a manager). Radio is a good
means of advertising (if you're not huffing and
puffing too loudly, after doing the hustle, to hear
the commercial). Magazines in doctor's waiting
rooms are terrific (except the coupons are torn
out). But speaking of getting the message (if you
went back to the title) what's all this got to do
with Tee Shirts? We are trying to say that tee
shirts are fabulous for advertising. Contacts
thousands of students with vital information like
V.&S. Pizza and Fonzie for president, tee shirts
are in style. On a tee shirt everyone gets the

If Wilson High School were to be given a nickname, it would definitely be
“involvement." Our school is one of the busiest spots in the area every day after
school and on weekends. Interested students join with talented instructors and
make clubs and sports teams a success. Wilson gives every student a chance to
develop his or her talents by offering a club to fit their needs. Among the large
variety of organizations are the following: If you like society: intergroup; literary
magazine; newspaper; yearbook; and FHP. If you like academics: mathletes; organ-
ian entities; NHS; debate; dramatics. If you like occupation: work experience; tech
students; Future Business Leaders of America. If you like our school: Student
Involvement; the School Store; and the Audio-Visual Crew. Wilson is a major
sports palace in Bucks County, offering soccer, football, wrestling, softball, hock­
ey, basketball, and cheerleading. School in 1977 is no longer a 3R education, but a
social experience that will be long remembered.

Wilson High School this year stressed to the highest degree ever,
the importance of the individual. From the graduating seniors to
the freshmen class, emphasis was removed from the student body
as a whole and placed on each individual student. Realizing a
necessity, the scheduling process and the guidance counseling
were handled on a much more personal, distinct level. There are
no two people in the world that are exactly alike; in Wilson,
students from many different types of backgrounds are gathered
together. Their interests are not always similar and therefore
Wilson must accommodate all types of students that have many
types of interests.

Students with different desires and values were observed
throughout the school year exercising their individuality. While
many students enjoyed sitting on the radiators during the chan-
ing of classes, others were seen in the smoking lounge, socializing
and smoking with their friends. When most of Wilson was eating
lunch, those brave enough, were sometimes seen crossing Green
Lane for a snack at Boyce's. Individuality was expressed through
art, music, sports, and most importantly through education. For
the student as an individual shall always learn more, than the
student that is merely a part of the student body.



Due to inclement weather, the 1976 Wilson Homecoming was post­
poned from Saturday afternoon, October 15, to the following Mon­
day evening, October 17. The entire festivity was a success! The
Golden Rams Football Team shut out the Pennsbury Falcons 17-0,
and the Homecoming ceremony was very impressive with total
organization. This year's Homecoming was slightly different from
those in the past: not only was the Homecoming Queen to be
selected, but for the first time a Homecoming King was to reign over
Wilson. As the band played "Maybe This Time", each of the nomi­
nees approached the platform from the opposite side of the field.
There was an evident tenseness in the air, and as Mr. Bosley made
the final announcement, shrieks of joy filled the stadium. Clare
Bechtel was pronounced 1976 Homecoming Queen along with John
Haney, as King. The first to congratulate them were the other
members of the court who were also on the platform: Bill Hibbs,
Bernadette Dasconio, Maurice Respes, Pam Clarke, Roy Remsburg,
Karen Scudder, Jackie Angelo, Brian Wirth, Dotty Quigley, Gary
Ludwig, Eileen Hannah, and Chris Marlow.

School board effects student's lives at Wilson.

The main concern of a school board is to maintain
and to efficiently manage a school district. In order
to do this, a school board must cooperate with each
other and also listen to the school district's popula­
tion. These men and women have a difficult job
because there are so many different needs within
such a large district. They must make decisions that
effect many people. They must then accept the fact
that some persons will be very happy with a certain
decision, while others will be upset about it. Know­
ing this, the board members are willing to take this
responsibility and make important decisions that
effect the present and future of Bristol Township
School District. Even though at times the board
does not make everyone happy, we realize the
school board members are fulfilling their duties to
the best of their knowledge.

Mr. Bosley expresses his pride in the class of ' 7 7 .

Dear Seniors,
For each of you, 1977 and Commencement will
be a memorable and lasting event throughout life.
For Woodrow Wilson High School, it represents
the culmination of a friendship cultivated during
the maturing years of a vibrant and zestful period
of life. For me it symbolizes the end of a personal
friendship which began when we were both
"freshmen" at Wilson. During those four years
we have had many occasions to become well ac­
Indeed, to everyone, this memorable occasion
represents the completion of an initial phase of
life's plan, and truly, the realistic beginning of the
individual's quest of the future's challenge.
Proudly we may reflect upon your numerous
achievements represented by scholastic excel­
lence, zealous endeavors and enthusiastic fervor.
Woodrow Wilson High may point with justifiable
pride to the memorable contributions and unself­
ish devotion exemplifid by you, the Class of 1977.
To each of you, may life bestow a future
abounding in honor, dignity and happiness.

Administrators endeavor to create a better Wilson.

MR. MICHAEL J. NOTARTOMAS . . . assistant principal.

MR. NICHOLAS G. OPALENICK . .. assistant principal.

MR. JAMES R. MANNION . . . assistant principal.

Wilson's administrative staff has been engaged in planning
and organizing the operation of the school since the begin­
ning of summer. This year a dedicated administration has
proven itself effective throughout the 1976-77 school year.
The administration, engrossed in scheduling, discipline,
and the function of the school, is represented by four men,
Mr. Nick Opalenick, Mr. Bill Ginty, Mr. Mike Notartomas,
and Mr. James Mannion, all devoted to the future hopes and
aspirations of Wilson. These four men, all of whom are
assistants to the principal, have been assigned to individual
areas of concentration. Mr. Opalenick has dealt mostly with
athletics and has been responsible for every athletic event
this year; Mr. Notartomas and Mr. Ginty have controlled
most of the disciplinary actions; Mr. Mannion has directed
scheduling. Although these men are continuously busy,
they often take time out from their schedules to listen to a
student's problems and concerns. These four dedicated men
MR. WILLIAM M. GINTY . . . assistant principal.
have served Wilson to the best of their ability and have
demonstrated the type of specialized service available at
Wilson high school.


Advisors help class officers plan a successful year.

This year's class advisors are dedicated people who
give their time and energy, to provide the freshmen,
sophomore, junior, and senior classes with activities
year round. Under the advisors guidance, students or­
ganize the different activities which have become Wil­
son traditions. The activities include the King and
Queen for Homecoming, the junior and senior proms,
the class trips, the dances, the homecoming floats, and
a score of others. Through the advisors and the student
representatives, enthusiasm and a feeling of unity are
produced. Few are the ones who could handle such a
challenging job. A person must truly be dedicated to
undertake an advisor position in Woodrow Wilson
High School. Fresh and new ideas are presented, dis­
cussed, and put into action. An open mind and fresh
viewpoints are vital to be an advisor. An advisor must

In order to project a selective education, much planning, hard
work, and organizing is necessary. The chairpersons of each
respective department and subject have expended much of
their time during the summer, before and after school, and
during their own time in preparation for each course of study.
These department heads have had many decisions and prepara­
tions which had to be done, such as which perspectives should
be studied in each course, the budgets for the department's
materials and coordination of each of the programs offered.

As everyone can see, our school is not just a learning center
anymore. It has become one of the busiest extra-curriculum
areas in Bucks County. School is a major part of each stu­
dent's life, and for the most part, students enjoy getting
involved. But how was it five, six, or even seven years ago?
Let's find out by asking a few teachers who have graduated
from Wilson. Ms. Cheryll Dougherty, an English teacher
puts it like this: "Educationally, school is better now. The
teachers are superior and classes are more interesting. Al­
though we had more activities then, students show spirit
today". Quoting from Mr. Don Harm, a teacher who puts
his students first, "Kids were different when I went to
school. Today, teachers really get to know their students,
and by this, they care more for each other. Most things are
improving, but some things were better then". Our school is
improving every year and we see this by looking back on
those teachers who attended school here. Ten years from
now, we'll look back and see how different our familiar
school will be!!

Teachers dedicate eighteen years to Wilson.

When Woodrow Wilson High School first opened in
1959, an instructional staff was hired to fulfill the
needs of the students of that time. Eighteen years later,
some of them still remain. These teachers, in a way, are
completely separate from the others. They have shared
their experiences with both students and teachers, and
have formed the backbone of Wilson. They have
memories of Wilson that extend into the past. These
teachers have seen many principals serve as Wilson's
leaders. They have been through various administra­
tive teams and have experienced the high and low
points at Wilson. At times, it was apparent to these
teachers that their efforts were rewarded by observing
positive changes at W. W. H. S. When negative
changes existed at Wilson, these teachers still worked

Wilson welcomes teachers to second year at W.W.

Every year at Woodrow Wilson, new teachers enter the
building and instantly become a part of student life.
Only last year a newcomer, this year an active part of
the school society, many teachers try to develop them­
selves and their school. In only one year, teachers such
as Mrs. Janet Majikas, Mr. Walt Reichner and Mr.
Josiah Reed have picked up the patterns of Wilson,
and to each class, have added a personal touch. Now
being in their second year, these teachers feel secure by
having an interesting job, sociable colleagues, and of
course, a group of friendly students. As each year
passes, these teachers will develop a special talent and
will be known school-wide for each one's individual­
ity. By putting forth their best efforts, as they've done
in the past year, they will become an even bigger part
of Wilson.

As the 1976-77 school year began, many freshman
students were wandering the halls of Wilson with
maps, trying to find a certain classroom. The fresh­
men weren't totally alone; the first year teachers
experienced similiar circumstances. Entering Wil­
son with virtually no knowledge of the school at all,
the newcoming teachers needed only the first few
days to become situated with locations of class­
rooms, schedules, and the Wilson attitude. These
recent additions to the instructional staff have dif­
ferent individual backgrounds; some just complet­
ing their studies at college, have endeavored tomin-
gle their new ideas with the existing concepts and
traditions, while others have brought many years of
experience from other schools and school districts

at Wilson with new ideas and enthusiasm.

Now in their third to fifth years at Woodrow Wilson, a large
percentage of the teachers are pretty well settled and organized in
our school. Not too long ago, was their first year, but now they
have earned the title of being well known throughout the school.
After several years experience in teaching, the majority of these
teachers have become involved not only socially, but academical­
ly. Each teacher has probably developed their own techniques for
teaching, and is excited about spreading this information to the
students. In only a few years, each tea cn€cner has made many new
friends, and also became closer to numerous students. Thanks to
these teachers, the young people of the school have become closer
to the adult society, and to tne development of their education.

Of all the teachers in our school, these

good portion of their lives to helping
others meet their educational goals, these
teachers are well known and appreciated
throughout Wilson. These teachers had
much to be proud of. They have been
working with the school, aiding students
toward graduation, and actually develop­
ing the spirit of Wilson. A few of these
professionals are Mr. John Kapral, who
teaches business; Mr. Carl Grecco, who
advises in debate and forensics; Mr.
Wayne Brugger, who teaches math
skills; and Mrs. Lillian Kase, who in­
structs her classes in Latin. Not only
have these teachers the right to be proud
of what they teach, but or themselves for
doing such a good job.

Tech teachers provide academic learning for st idents.

MR. RICHARD HARTUNG . .. tech, mathematics.
At Woodrow Wilson, there are many areas of study for
students to choose from. Many students desire a techni­
cal area of vocation. To aid these students in gaining
knowledge and acquiring practical skills, a vocational
technical school is available for these students. While
this training is needed in order to prepare the students in
the working world, he or she can not forget to put empha­
sis on academic subjects. Therefore these students ac­
quire this knowledge by attending tech classes at Wilson.
The teachers who instruct these classes combine aca­
demic and practical knowledge. They fill a necessary part
of a students total educational needs. Tech classes are
provided in the following departments: English, Math,
Social Studies, Science, and Gym. The tech students ap­
preciate the changes made in the curriculum to provide

If you ask yourself: "What do I want? What troubles me?
How can I make my future what I want it be be?" Then the
Rap Room is for you. The Rap Room is a place to allow
students to take an in-depth look at themselves, their prob­
lems, and their relationships with others. This room is
designed to talk freely among friends and involved teachers,
without any worries or fears. It serves as a place for students
to come when they are uptight, troubled, need advice, or just
need someone to talk to, and at the same time someone else
listening and trying to help. The teachers involved with the
Rap Room have to go to a special training session so they
will get a better idea of what is needed from them. The
Student Council, an organized group at Wilson, also helps
with the Rap Room. The Rap Room is open during all

Students, teachers, and administrators who care a lot about
Wilson. An hour and fifteen minutes after school has
closed, people are still participating in after school activities.
Thanks to the teachers who care, students are given a large
choice of clubs, sports, and sponsored activities to enjoy.
Teachers who take part in these activities must show some
interest in student life; let's find out. Dr. Varani, having 27
years experience in Bristol Township, has joined Wilson
again, and has started a very active Italian club. Here's how
he feels: "I feel that by allowing students to take part in the
curriculum, we train them to be good future leaders." Clubs
allow students to develop their interests by participating. A
good example of this is the debate and forensics club. Mr.

the very talented teams, have proven to pro­

Since the beginning of time man, as well as woman,
has experienced constant change and Wilson is no
exception to this process. An example of this change is
the former advisors that have played an important pa
in the school's history. Clubs that vary from building
school spirit to mastering the slopes have been hon-
ored to have had the people pictured on this page along
with others, as their sponsors. As time went on, stu­
dents began to lose their initial interest and enthusiam
which have brought some of these clubs to their dele­
tion, as well as budget cuts, which have brought pre­
mature deaths to these activities. Other clubs have lost
their advisors when outside pressure, such as family
life, became more important and they had to step
down. Whatever it was, Wilson will always remember
the valuable contributions that each of these former MISS KATHLEEN MCCORMICK former MR. JOSEPH M. BOLES ... former spon­

Wilson expresses gratitude to its former coaches.

Former coaches have found a special place in
their former teams hearts by helping them to
shapen their skills in their sports. Even though
they no longer coach as a result of/ feeling, they
can no longer help their teams, due to a loss of
financial support, or because they have no extra
time, they should be praised for putting forth
extra effort in helping Wilson to become a better
school. People like Mr. Bruce Rembert, who
helped coach last year's varsity basketball team
to first place, Mr. Richard Puchino, who helped
coach our ice hockey team and Mrs. Helen
Cantwell, who cannot coach the girl's gymnastics
1^-' ■ V ' . i team as a result of a school board expenditure
cut. We sincerely wish that these people would
come back and use their talents where they

As always, there is a space in the yearbook dedicated to the nine
women who are behind the scenes at Wilson. Their hard work
and skillful determination make it easier for our administrators
to do their jobs with insistent efficiency. It is hard to realize just
what a secretarial job entails, but eight daily hours of organizing,
making business transactions and basically keeping our offices
running smoothly is a task deserving much credit and thanks.
Therefore, on behalf of the faculty and student body, we would
like to commend these ladies for the fine job they have done this
year to make Wilson the best! We also sincerely hope that each
and everyone of them will be back next year to help us through
another successful chapter in the never ending Wilson story.
MS. BARBARA DAVIS . . . discipline office secretary.


Special services required at Wilson.

Community aides, laundry ladies, cafeteria work­
ers and janitors are the people who keep Wood-
row Wilson High School functioning properly.
Without the school lunch, many people would be
hungry throughout the day. Thanks to the ser­
vices of the cafeteria workers, this does not occur.
To keep a school functioning properly, it must
have a janitorial staff to keep up with the work
load present. Wilson's janitors do an excellent
job keeping our school well maintained. The pur­
pose of the community aides is to assist in keep­
ing the halls clear and undisturbed during
classes. The efforts of these people sometimes go
unnoticed by the faculty and the student body of
Wilson. Their jobs serve an important and neces­
sary function to Wilson.

The Woodrow Wilson Golden Rams enjoyed their best foot­
ball season since 1970. The football team posted an impressive
8-2 record against a tough schedule. The Golden Rams had
many things to be proud of this season. The team finished in
second place in the Lower Bucks County League with only the
tough 16-15 loss to Council Rock denying them a champion­
ship. The team recorded three shutouts defensively, fewest
points allowed in the league and led the league in intercep­
tions. Coach Neuman's squad recorded wins over powerful
Easton, Harrisburg and Pennsbury clubs. A great defensive
effort and Bill Hibbs' talented foot also brou^t the Alumni
Trophy back to Wilson in a 3-0 win over arch-rival Delhaas.
Individual honors were received by several players. Matt
Wood, Brian Schiavo, Maurice Respes, Greg Edwards and Bill
Hibbs were all Second Team, All Lower Bucks, All-Star selec- f
