Adams Central Community Schools 222 West Washington Monroe, Indiana Volume 24 Why does a person go to school? Most would say to learn. Yet, what is it that students do learn? At Adams Central each of the 472 students learns at one time or another: 1. How to make paper airplanes in Comp. 2. Never try to outtalk Mrs. Grove. 3. To buy " Cliff ' s Notes " when a class has to read a novel. 4. How not to get caught using a squirt gun in school. 5. How to gawk properly into other rooms. 6. Not to mess around with " The Boys. " 7. How to steal reflectors. 8. How to use meaningless chatter. 9. Not to be rowdy when a Ball State representative is sitting in on a class in an adjacent lecture area. 10. How to do senior math during physics. Of course, none of the aforementioned are what students are supposed to learn, such as the Twenty-fifth Amendment, the Dred Scot case, or the correct way to conjugate irregular verbs in a foreign language. However, most students do learn what they are supposed to, but, unfortunately, the mind of a student is like a can of Coke, since the contents of both are good only as long as they remain in their containers. When a student takes a test, his mind is like a can of Coke that ' s been consumed. It’s empty. Through¬ out the year the student goes through the same process--learn, take the test, for¬ get, learn, take the test, forget. So just as that empty can can be used again, the student can also be recycled.

With the help of a consultant from the State Department of Education, the English department spent considerable time origi- nizing a new curriculum this year. The new program, called Phase-Elective English, allowed students to choose their classes on a nine week basis instead of the traditional English classes. The new classes, opened to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, were subject oriented and " phased " according to the level of difficulty. Some of the classes offered during the past year were " Mystery and Suspense, " " Creative Writing, " " Facing the Future, " and " The American Novel.

' s math courses, taught by Miss Beavers and Mr. Ransbottom, included general math, algebra I, geometry, algebra II, and senior math. Many students dis¬ covered that math does not take a genius to figure out the tricky problems as they once thought.

Social studies, offered only to sopho¬ mores, juniors, and seniors , is com¬ posed of US History, Sociology, Govern¬ ment, Economics, and World History. The senior government class held a mock election for President, Vice Presi¬ dent, Governor, and Lt. Governor. Senior students portrayed the different candidates and gave campaign speeches during the morning announcements. The outcome of the election was closely re¬ lated to the national and state elections. Activities of the other social studies courses included: speakers, movies, and field trips. Mr. McIntosh, Mr. Brown and Mr. Gibbs taught the students about the different aspects of social studies. ) j (ABOVE) Portraying Richard Nixon, Greg Childs tries to pull votes in the government class ' mock elec¬ tion.

Working long hours, the A.C. yearbook staff attempted to make the 1973 edition the best ever. With the help of the photo¬ graphy club, the staff put together the largest yearbook in the twenty-four year history. Because of the extra pages, the price of the book rose, causing a slight drop in sales. However, Mr. Birch and the editors feel that the quality of this book will cause sales to go up in 1974.

The annual candy sales, Granny Night, Daddy Date Night, and the Sunshine Ban¬ quet kept the girls busy, as did a new event this year, the Box Social. A project that each of the girls enjoyed was the sending of gifts to their adopted sisters living in New Mexico and Hong Kong.

Mr. Birch taught the essentials of elec¬ tronics and aided the teachers with pro¬ grams that were put on television. The boys learned how to set up movie equip¬ ment and learned basically how to fix TV’s and set up microphone systems. Staying busy all the time, the electronics club members tape a commercial for the speech club TV program. Newspaper Staff Forms Photography Club Trying to meet a deadline, features editor Dave Eyanson works on the final draft of his story. Adams Central’s newspaper, the Jet Stream, was published every two weeks throughout the year. Generally, a four page edition - special issues sometimes ran as high as sixteen pages - was printed. The staff was composed of an editor in chief, assistant editor, feature editor, sports edi¬ tor and photographer. The business arrange¬ ments of the paper were handled by a busi¬ ness manager and his staff and an exchange editor. The paper was free to all students from grade one through twelve. Ads were sold at the beginning of the year to help defray the cost. Newspaper Staff: BACK ROW: Sonja Poorman, Tom Jesionowski, Doug Wilks, Jeff Weisman, Mark Zurcher, Richard Watkins, Vickie Kolter.

Along with girls from South Adams and Bellmont, the Gold Teens entertained the patients every third Saturday of each month by talking with them and by making favors. The two main pro¬ jects of the Gold Teens were the planning of a Christmas party and the collecting of stuffed animals and old jewelry. Taking hundreds of visitors through Adams Central proved to be not only edu¬ cational for the groups taking the tour, but for the tour guides as well. Tour groups included students from Manchester College, Ball State, and other various Institutions. Assisting Mrs. Stucky and Mrs. Burk- head, the student librarians handled many of the odd jobs around the library. Besides keeping track of overdue books and fines, the student librarians helped take inven¬ tory at the end of the year.

During the year of 1973, the Adams Central National Honor Society, consisting of juniors and seniors, gained many new members. To determine who is eligible for N.H.S., the faculty rates the students of the junior and senior classes, who must be in the top 10% to 25% of their classes, respectively. Initiation of new members was held on May 3. An international honorary society, Quill and Scroll recognizes the writing ability of junior and senior high school journalists. Each member, who must be in the top third of his class, received a membership card and pin along with a sub scription to " Quill and Scroll, " a periodical published one a bi-monthly basis. During the N.H. S. initiation ceremonies, Lynn Miller gives her speech t o the new members on one of the five virtues of a member. 98 I (LEFT) After the National Honor Society initiation had con¬ cluded, Mike Nussbaum puts on his N.H.

Forming a tunnel for the foot¬ ball players not only showed the pep club’s enthusiam and spirit but proved their interest in the players. Scrapbooks, carefully, prepared for the football players and coaches, held memories of glorious victories and agonizing de¬ feats. Surrounding the basketball team with spirit boosting chants became a favorite of the players as well as the fans. New outfits, caravans parties were just a few of the ideas that the energetic members came up with during the 1972- 73 sports season.

Jim Johnson, who along with Robin Landis and Greg Childs represented A.C.H.S. on the ACAC all-conference team, was elected the team ' s Most Valuable Player. The team also chose Greg Childs and Randy Reynolds as honorary captains. Coach Hilbert summed up the season in the following quote: " Only once in the short history of Adams Central football has a team bettered the record of the 1972 Jets. It was truly a team effort and a most satisfying year, even though the Jets were beaten by Homestead in overtime and by only 3 points by Bellmont. We had a fine group of seniors and they are to be congratulated on a job well done. " BACK ROW: Coach Ransbottom, Coach Carr, Coach Huffman, Robin Landis, Joel Houk, Bob Gerber,.

Ross finished eighth overall in the conference standing at the end of the season. 123 Led by Cousins Lila and Kathy Barger, the Adams Central rifle team won ten matches while losing one. The Concordia ROTC, a team which A. C. defeated twice during the season, accounted for the sole loss by best¬ ing A. C. by one point, 1084-1083. However, the cross country team, made up of only underclassmen, could not match the im¬ pressive record of the rifle team. The harriers could manage just a 10- 19 record, but one run¬ ner, Dan Ross, did finish eighth in the Allen Coun¬ ty Athletic Conference.

GAA Softball Team Records 8-1 Season; Volleyball Team Advances to State Finals Losing only the final game of the sea¬ son to Bellmont, the Adams Central G.A. A. softball team had one of the finest seasons in its history as the team won eight of nine games. However, the season the G.A.A. volleyball had completely overshadowed the one of the softball team. Ending a sensational 22-7 season, the A.C. volley¬ ball team emerged as one of the top teams in the state. Besides being the runner-up in the con¬ ference tourney, the team had the honor of bringing to A.C. the first sectional trophy ever won by a G. A. A. team. A. C. took the Portland sectional by defeating Portland 15-6 and 15-2 in the final match. After defeating Connersville and Pendleton Heights in the New Castle re¬ gional, the girls advanced to the state finals in Indianapolis. Although they won the first game from Taylor 15-5, they lost the next two 19-17 and 15-13. By reaching the state finals, the G.A. A. volleyball team went farther in a state tournament than any other athletic or¬ ganization in Adams Central’s history.

C. team put everything together to bring home the A.C.A.C. championship trophy for the second straight year. With five seniors and two all-conference members, Dale Adler and Mark Zurcher, re¬ turning, Coach McIntosh and Coach Dubach had high hopes for the spring season.

The new rules are as follows. 1. The library becomes a no-talk area. Students may use the com¬ mons area and rooms which are not in use for talking. 2. Students are not allowed to spend more than forty minutes a day in the commons area. 3. Students are not allowed to use profanity, to talk back to teachers over a disagreement, or to play cards. If a student does any of the aforementioned, his I.S. privileges will be suspended for two weeks. Students are allowed to play chess or checkers on their I.S. time. After experimenting with the I.S. Pro¬ gram for three years, the administration now thinks it will work. Student Council: BACK ROW: Mr. Schnepf, Larry Stoller, Renee Bebout, Dan Workinger, Randy Landis, Kim Fruechte, Denise Sprunger, Mr. Hayes. FRONT ROW: Coni Everett, Secretary Ed Fisher, Vice President Amee Steury, President Scott Bassett, Treasurer Tina Ratcliff, Debbie Sprunger. 156 Every day the Supervised Study Hall contains many students of I. S. Sitting in her first module home room class, Connie Fruechte reads her in¬ vitation to the prom. Since the library became a no-talk area, the senior boys use their former sanctuary only in the morning before school begins. 157 Connie Johnson Crowned Homecoming Queen Working at Mark Zurcher ' s house, Don Inniger, Jim Foreman, and some other seniors make a few final day prepara¬ tions on the class float. On October 20 the Adams Central football field became the sight of the fourth annual Homecoming festival. The senior football players escorted the queen candidates and class representatives from the west end zone to midfield, where Bob Mutschler and Jim Foreman crowned Connie Johnson Homecoming Queen. The court consisted of senior candidates Lila Barger, Becky Braden, and Denise Sprunger and class representatives Deb Johnson, Bev Braden, and Vicki Mitchel. Capturing float honors was the sopho¬ more class with the junior class placing second and the senior class third. Home¬ coming was a complete success with the parade of floats, the queen and her court, and a Jet victory over the Eastside Blazers! Bob Mutschler gives Connie Johnson, the newly crown¬ ed Homecoming Quee n, the traditional kiss. 158 Homecoming Court: Bev Braden, Lila Barger, Becky Braden, Queen Connie Johnson, Denise Spmnger, Deb Johnson, Vicki Mitchel. Capturing first place, the sophomore class float displays the Homecom¬ ing theme, " Try It, You ' ll Like It. " Homecoming Queen Connie Johnson. 159 Assemblies Break Routine (RIGHT) Speaking with the junior and senior classes, United States Senator Birch Bayh discusses the difference one vote can make. (BELOW) In an effort to get the basketball team fired up for the A. C. A. C. tourney, Rex Myers Don Inniger, Mark Kaehr, Rick Hurst, and Charlie Foot ask Mr. Biggs to ’ help them sweep to a victory. Preparing to block a potential shot, Jim Foreman tries out the game of spaceball. 160 During the year the Adams Central student body saw assemblies that ranged from a speech by Senator Birch Bayh to pep rallies to a presentation of spaceball by the Iowa state champion. The administration arranged these assemblies in an attempt to entertain the students and inform them of the prob¬ lems they will be facing in and out of school. (ABOVE) Spaceball champion of the state of Iowa, Greg Jacobs performs some stunts on the trampoline. (RIGHT) Proclaimed by the audience as the most talented boy, Bill Burkhart sings the chorus of " Rollin ' on the River " . 161 I Sprunger, Fruechte Named Prom Queen, King (RIGHT, BELOW, LOWER RIGHT) Along with Madison Zane, which played at the dance held in the gym, the Norwell swing choir provided entertainment at the prom. 162 I Queen and King of the prom, Denise Sprunger and Kim Fruechte take the traditional first dance. On the evening of May 5, the junior class sponsored an all-night prom, which featured a banquet, a dance, a movie, and some bowling. After enjoying the banquet in the school cafeteria, the couples pro¬ ceeded to the gym for the dance, featuring Zane Madison. At that time Kim Fruechte and Denise Sprunger were crowned King and Queen of the festivities. The next was Bluffton, where everyone traveled to see the movie " Shenandoah. " After the movie ended, the couples moved on to Decatur, where they finished off the evening with a few hours of bowling at Villa Lanes. In the A. C. cafeteria, the students chat at the b anquet. Senior Breakfast | (RIGHT) Waiting in line, Kim Fruechte talks with Ron Gremaux and Andy Miller at the senior breakfast. (BE¬ LOW) After the breakfast had ended, the seniors and the faculty gathered for a singfest. — 164 (LEFT) After waiting in line, Don Inniger and Rick Hurst get some waffles at the senior breakfast. (BELOW) Meeting together for one last times, the seniors enjoy a breakfast of pancakes and waffles. Angie Mitchel, Steve Bieberich, and Mark Zurcher prepare to eat at the senior breakfast. 165 Seniors Visit King ' s Island (RIGHT) Moving to the next ride, Lynn Miller, Elaine Watkins, and Becky Sprunger tour King ' s Island. (BELOW) Bob Mutschler and Steve Bieberich try out one of the many rides that are featured at King ' s Island. After getting off the buses at King ' s Island, the senior class waits to get in. Many seniors awoke early Saturday morning, May 12, to board busses that would motor them to their destination near Cincinnati, Ohio. Bus drivers Charles Morrison and Harold Barger, along with Mr. Huffman, Mr. Hilbert, Mrs. Grove, and Miss Grabner accompanied the seniors on a very enjoyable day at King ' s Island. 167 168 No year was ever like 1972-73, which is why yearbooks are made. At Adams Central, there were many firsts, such as an athletic group--the G.A.A. volleyball team--making the state tournament and the wrestling team recording a state record win. However, not everything that happened for the first time was good as mari¬ juana was found in the school building. On the nation scene the year was quite unique. The tragedy of the 1972 Sum¬ mer Olympia and the scandal of the Watergate incident were just two events that highlighted school year. In closing I would like to thank everyone who helped make this book possible - - Mr. Birch, all the staffs, and Mrs. Grove and the photography club. Rex Young, editor-in-chief
