To find a person that is worthy for the
dedication of a yearbook, one must search
very hard. In Woodrow Wilson, we
searched until we found a man located in
the business wing of the school. A person
such as Mr. MacGowan, is often over­
looked in a school as large as Woodrow
Wilson. A teacher at Wilson for 12 years,
Mr. MacGowan has shown to everyone •A.i-
that he has what it takes to be one of the
leaders of Wilson. Being The man who A
runs the school store many pressures are
on this man. The store’s motto, “we don’t
make Money, we make Friends”, is also
true for Mr. MacGowan’s friendship for all.
At one time, head of the Future Business
Leaders of America, Mr. MacGowan
proves that he has what it takes for us to
dedicate this book to him.

y Many people can’t wait to leave the halls and classes of Wilson. Tft

these people Wilson is a place of learning. To the many others Wilson
is much more; it is an experience that may never be lived again.
Wilson comes alive afterschool, with the sounds of many teams prac­
ticing and clubs earnestly working on their activities. The athletic
program at Wilson recognizes the need to stay long hours and practice
the skills that are needed to make them a winning school. Along with
the athletes that stay after school, members of various other clubs and
activities scurry to where their organizations are meeting. We thank
these people for taking such an interest in Wilson.

A favorite pastime of the people of Wil­
son is hallwalking. Before school, students
enjoy just standing around talking to each
other. Radiators and windows become a
seclusion where people can go when the
bell rings to relieve themselves from the
pressures and tension of the classrooms.
With the faculty having their own lounge,
the students of Wilson have made the halls
their lounge. Many students have picked
spots where they can go everyday and this
is where they call their home at Wilson.

Having been postponed by rain for a
week, Woodrow Wilson’s homecoming
came to be against a tough Delhaas oppo­
nent. With overcast skys, the rams battled
valiantly, but fell without gaining a point,
against the strong Tiger defense. Wilson
loses the football game 13-0: During an ex­
tended halftime, a parade of seven floats
drove around the track with all the floats
featuring a bicentennial theme. A winner
was selected. The freshman float became a
winner, but all the floats were excellent.
Another winner was Beth Cuturell. Beth
was crowned the homecoming queen of the
1975-76 season. Other contestents were,
Inez Mager, Susan Mager, Rose Thigpen,
Sue Richards, and Jody Volpe.



introduction 13

Many different aspects of school life depends on the sup­
port of its students. To promote cooperation and feeling of
unity as with many educational institutions, Wilson has its
symbols to represent this unity.
A unified school, such as Woodrow Wilson is represented in
many ways. Physical symbols can be just as important to a
school as well as mental symbols. On these pages are just a few
of the physical symbols that represent our school. Along with
these physical symbols, a school must also carry a mental
attitude that their school is the best. With this kind of atti­
tude, to hold onto, everyone in Wilson can get along arid
create the best school in the area.

Decision makers keep community schools functioning

This country has laws which were writ­
ten to guide our government’s leaders, and
our officials follow these rules to develop
the United States to its fullest potential.
As with our government, there are guide­
lines which are used to set up policies in an
educational system. The School Board of
Bristol Township enforces these rules and
guidelines, and keeps a check on the educa­
tion of Bristol Township students. The
School Board is deeply interested in seeing
that all students receive an opportunity to
develop to their greatest potential by using
the township’s educational resources to the
fullest extent. SHOWN ABOVE, the
Board is meeting to make decisions and to
mantain a smooth running system. SEAT­

Principal Larry C. Bosley stresses the need to
view the past to better the future

Dear Seniors,
The Class of 1976, the year of our great
nation’s two-hundredth birthday, is most
unique. You, the class of ’76, have the dis­
tinct honor of helping to celebrate this mo-
mentious occasion by celebrating a birth­
day — a new way of life. In June you will
have achieved a milestone, allowing you
more freedom than you have ever exper­
ienced. This milestone represents twelve
years of dedication and education as well
as discipline and understanding. In the
words of Woodrow Wilson, “The object of
a liberal training is not learning, but disci­
pline and the enlightenment of the mind.
The educated man is to be discovered by
his point of view, by the temper of his
mind, by his attitude towards life and his
fair way of thinking. He can see, he can
discriminate, he can combine ideas and
perceive whether they lead; he has insight
and comprehension. His mind is a prac­
ticed instrument of appreciation. He is
more apt to contribute light than heat to a
You have attended Wilson for four years
and seemed to have accomplished the dis­
cipline, yet enlightened minds where
young men and women have shown that
education comes in many ways. You have
risen to the challenge of past classes and
have extended their accomplishments well
beyond those expected.
You have surely begun to show that you
are the “educated person” in your actions,
inside and out of the classrooms, and
through this we offered new challenges to
future classes. May I extend my sincere
best wishes to each of you. God bless you!

Administrative team works towards unified Wilson

Leadership is an important part of any
endeavor. The military leaders, during the
revolutionary war, performed brilliantly in
action, as is evident by their defeat of the
British. Just as important as these leaders
are the leaders of Woodrow Wilson; the
administrative staff. The administration,
headed by Mr. Larry C. Bosley, have ac­
cepted the challenge to develop Wilson
into one of the best schools in the area.
Mr. Bosley, working with Mr. Mannion,
Mr. Opalenick, Mr. Ginty, and Mr. No-
tarthomas, faces many problems through­
out the school year. Mr. Opalenick, head of
student activities, has the duty of coordi­
nating all sporting events. Mr. Ginty is in
charge of the very difficult task of disci­
pline. Although, always played up to be the
“heavy” at Wilson, Mr. Ginty does his job

istration is one of Mr. Mannion’s duties.

the cafeteria duties. His other duties in­
clude disciplinary problems that occur.

guidance 19

Student’s interests is primary concern of guidance

When the American revolutionists de­
cided to fight in order to gain their inde­
pendence from England, they did not have
the advantage of trained professional
counselors to “guide” them through their
i;tk struggle. At Wilson, the students have the
% advantage of trained professionals, who
guide the students in directions, which suit
each individual’s needs. Five guidance
ffli counselors, advise the twenty-five hundred
Mis: students of Wilson. The guidance staff ex­
ists solely for the benefit of the students.
■«£ Each counselor is interested in the achieve­
"•W ments and difficulties of every student.
Jtr: Along with helping the students make de­
cisions, such as course selections, joh op­
k portunities, and college placements, the
guidance department also administers a
variety of aptitude and intelligence tests.
These tests help the counselors better
serve the students, by establishing the
abilities and desires of each student. The
lesi Differential Aptitude Test (DAT) is one
such test, which the guidance counselors

20 mathematics

Training students for a technical society

At the birth of our nation, a need for an
advanced system of mathematics did not
exist. During this time period, the life style
of the American people was relatively sim­
ple, when contrasted to life as we know it
today. The mode of life was a non-techni-
cal society. As a result of the non-existence
of modern technology, life was extremely
hard. Today, in our computer-oriented so­
ciety, there stands a great need that the
members of this society, possess some
knowledge of the concepts of math and its
integration in our everyday lives Headed
by chairman, John DiRico, the math de­
partment furnishes its students with a ba­
sic understanding of math. In addition to
the basic courses, a student may decide to
pursue the trigonometry and calculus
courses offered. Math is often a course
which many students approach with hesi­
tation and doubt. However, within our so­
ciety there is an immense need to learn and MR. BRITTON ... general math 9, geometry,

accomplished in their fields. In the ninth
grade, students begin learning basic phys­
ical science. In this course, the student is
introduced to working in laboratory situa­
tions. Emphasis is placed on interaction
and energy. After ninth grade, there is a
wide selection of courses offered. Biology is
usually the next step for most students be­

Broadening our minds through English

In 1776, life was hardfor the revolution­
aries that were freeing our country. But try
to imagine how hard it would have been if
there was not a unified language. At Wil­
son, our english department employs many
tactics to develop an understanding of our
native language. The department, headed
by Mr. Chad Martin, entertains a well
rounded course of study for the students to
choose from. Numerous courses are offered
in the english department. Starting in 9th
and 10th grade, a student is given a basic
background in oral and written expression.
Upon reaching 11th grade, a student is giv­
en a choice of eight thematic courses, each
of which is one half year. 11th and 12th
grades are required to pick one thematic
course each year. Along with the thematic
courses, a choice of elective courses is of­
fered. There are fifteen elective courses to
choose from and each is either to aid the
student in a basic english skill or for enjoy­
ment. For the student who is college
bound, the department also has an honors MS. CHERYLL DOUGHERTY ... honors

social studies 27

Informing students of world events

The Social Studies department allows
the students an insight of events that
shaped the nation as we know it today and
informs students of current happenings
that will shape our nation’s future. The
Social Studies Department offers courses
dealing with other countries and their
many customs and traditions, so that we
might have a knowledge of our world
neighbors . . . Problems of Democracy
gives us information into the workings of
our nation. These courses prepare us to
enter the world as well informed citizens.
Other curriculum offerings include, Soci­
ology and Psychology. These courses offer
the students the opportunity for a better
understanding of ourselves and the people
around us, so that we may change with our
world and aid in its growth. It is with this
understanding of the people around us and

We live in a highly mechanized and com­

Realizing that we do exist in a highly
mechanized society, the health and phys­
ical education department, under the lead­
ership of chairman, Mr. Ed Neuman, still
realizes the need to be healthy and phys­
ically fit to meet the challenges we face in
the future. As a result, the students at Wil­
son are trained to affectively function as
Americans. When this nation was formed,
it established a democratic government
with “Freedom and Liberty for All”. Al­
though, the students at Wilson may not
have all the freedom they would like, this
democratic principle is upheld in our phys

:V2 business

Learning skills for partaking in the business world

At the start of this nation, most of the
United State’s population concentrated
their working efforts in the agricultural
area. Industry and business played a minor
role in the country’s early development.
With the Industrial Revolution there was a
reversal in the economy, emphasis was
placed on the industrial and business
world. This trend has played a major role
throughout the nation’s history and still is
the major emphasis in today’s society. The
department, under the direction of Mr.
David MacGowan, stresses the importance
of the business world. One of the staff’s
goals is to prepare students for a career
and create opportunities for them in the
world of business. The curriculum offers
training in the necessary skills to be suc­
cessful as an employee in the business
world. The business courses include those
which give instruction on typing, short­
hand, transcription, and office practice. It
is a benefit to the students and to the
American society that business is part of
the educational curriculum, which offers MR. JOHN KAPRAL . . . general business, 9 yrs. at w.w.

Appreciating foreign cultures thru their languages

Although the war for independence
was between the United States and Eng­
land, other countries entered into the
conflict. The British were hiring soldiers
from Germany and French soldiers
came to aid the Americans. Whenever
there was a meeting of these many dif­
ferent languages, there had to be some­
one present who could translate the lan­
guages . . The department of languages
at Wilson are working toward this goal;
should the need ever arise, its students
would understand the languages pre­
sented. Under the leadership of Mrs. Ei­
leen Schein, the language department
strives toward the understanding of a
language, as well as the culture. With
five languages to teach, the department
members must be versed in more than
one language. German, French, Italian,

fine arts 35


Students gain an awareness of art and music
An appreciation for art and music has
always had deep roots and meaning in this
ioidiff, nation’s history. It is important for all of
%■(. us, students and faculty included, that we
ayi take time from our busy lives to notice the
beauty and to listen to the sounds that
‘ iOClf.
4fk surround us, in our daily existence. Our art
3S%( department, headed by Mr. William Sco-
lere, offers students an oppurtunity to ex­
press themselves and to be aware of their
Spit environment through art. Through differ­
^b.L ent types of art media, students can choose
Cuf: which art form best suits their individual
expression. Mr. William Hildebrand and
ih Mr. Byron Kindig channel students inter­
ests by using music as a form or an exten-
tion of a students’ desire to become aware
of themselves and of the musical world.
Hopefully, through art and music, many
students will learn a form of expression

Students train for opportunities in practical world

The growth of a nation depends on
the quality of its craftsmen. Since the
Revolution, we have developed a work­
ing force that has supplied the needs of
the country through times of war and
peace. If it were not for the carpenters,
welders, draftsmen, electricians, and
other seemingly unimportant jobs,
America would not have made it this far
and could not hope to grow farther in
the future. Although technology has
played an important role in our lives,
these important jobs are what have kept
America going. Through courses offered

Special services offers varied learning situations

The U.S., since its beginning as a
democratic society, has always assured
its citizens that all people will receive
the same benefits within our society . .
These beliefs are supported in the edu­
cational system. Realizing that not all
students can be categorized into the
norm, special services offers those stu­
dents an education geared to their spe­
cific needs. Mrs. Constance Walker,
head of the department, works with her
staff to provide instruction that will im­
prove the student’s reading and math
skills. Each staff member uses a variety
of teaching devices and has a wide
choice of material to work with. Mrs.
Lecie Piermattei, head of the Resource
Room, is concerned with teaching the
skills of reading to her students, in order
for them to function as informed citi­

Through every war many casualties are
incured. Without nurses to aid these
wounded people many would have died.
This profession was one of the most impor­
tant during the war. The nurses at Wood-
row Wilson, although not having to take
care of many major casualties, are very
qualified and are a necessary part of our
school. Another room in the school that
many do not visit as often as they should is
the library. Headed by Mrs. Anna Louise
Getz, the library is one of the most useful
rooms the school has to offer. Along with
its many books, the library offers a vast
storehouse of back issues of magazines for
students to research from. Another room
that is in the library, is the A.V. room.
Controlling the A.V. room is Mr. George
Hopely. Handling all the projectors and
equipment, the department makes teach­

As in this country, as it is true at Wood-

behind the scene who keep this country
and school running efficiently. It is the se­
cretaries who help to maintain this school
on a straight and even course. Most of the
secretaries go unnoticed by the students

Without the secretaries of the guidance de­
partment, of the work experience depart­
ment, and of the athletic department, this
school would be of total and probable mass
confusion. Some of the secretaries have
been with Woodrow Wilson High School
for a long period of time and some of them
have just joined us. Either way, all the sec­
retaries are proud to say that they work at
Woodrow Wilson. They take pride in their
work and realize their importance to the
students and to the faculty.

Providing services necessary to the school

Throughout history, many people have
not been mentioned or remembered. Not
that these people were not important, but
that nobody took the time to realize that
these people were there. Community aides,
laundry ladies, cafeteria workers and jani­
tors are just such people. Although not
professionals, these people aid in main­
taining the school. Without the school
lunch, many students would be hungry
throughout the day. Thanks to the services
of the cafeteria workers, this does not oc­
cur. To keep a school functioning properly,
it must have a janitorial staff that can keep
up with the workload that is present. Wil­
son’s janitors do an excellent job keeping
the school well maintained. Other people
that are seen around Wilson are the com­
munity aides. The purpose of these com­
munity aides is to assist in keeping the

Dear Seniors:
In this Bicentennial year, it is fashionable to look back over
the past. I would like to reflect on the achievements of gradu­
ates of Woodrow Wilson over the past seventeen years. As a
teacher who saw the doors of Wilson open for the first time in
September, 1959, I have seen thousands of students walk
these halls. Some of them went on to become doctors, lawyers,
and college professors. Many became teachers, some of whom
returned to work in the Bristol Township School District.
Others became carpenters, plumbers, and policemen, or
opened their own businesses. I know students who became
dancers, professional athletes, artists, and writers. Wilson
graduates have entered every field of human endeavor and
have become successful, productive, contributing members of
our society. Many of our graduates have entered the Armed
Forces, where they have served their country well in many
capacities. We respectfully remember and morn those twelve
Wilson students who gave their lives in the service of our
country. As our country celebrates its Bicentennial, we are
proud of our heritage and we are equaly proud of the fine
young men and women who have left this school and have
distinguished themselves in many areas of service to our peo­
ple. As you. The Class of 1976, leave these halls, remember
that you now become part of this Wilson tradition. We are
Senior class officers and advisors
expecting great things from you in the years to come.
George J. Hopely,
Senior Class Advisor
