Days of barefooted capers and unannounced trips to the lake fade into memories as we regretfully gaze ahead to classes and home¬ work. The Jet Grill in downtown Monroe appears deserted until after 3:00 P.M., when A.C.’s little people invade its quarters. Thoughts of a golden carpet of wheat without a footprint, those little black buggies and windmills dotting the horizon, and the huge, roaring combines cannot be hastily repressed as we sit in class, peering out into the bright sunshine. As we anticipate re¬ newing old friendships and meeting new teachers, we realize that somehow, sometime, we’re going to make it happen! r- Above: Mournful juniors present a skit at the homecoming pep session. ■ Right: Mrs. Sprunger helps her first grade students to improve their reading skills. Her feelings about returning to school for an¬ other year evident, senior Jean Gilbert changes her schedule during registration. f „ The library workroom provides an excellent study room for juniors Diane Weisman, Mary Amstutz, and Darryl Gerber. Art teacher, Miss Mazelin, helps several grade school children, Jim Isch and Rhonda Byerly, with their special projects. As we glance about, familiar surroundings comfort all but the unaccustomed. Gazing, their eyes wide with wonder, they grasp for security. Their private little worlds now fit into our one big family at Adams Central. Pre-school round-ups, mid-day naps, operet¬ tas, and third grade trips to the circus are just the first steps to growing into our family. Suddenly, we find ourselves lost in the fury of changing classes and trying to understand the modular system. Fan bus dating becomes very popular as does noontime rendezvous. With passing years comes the glamorous teens ! Halloween TPing, driver’s licenses, par¬ ties, proms, and of course the ultimate, grad¬ uation, make it all seem worthwhile. That ' s us at A.C., each in our own way makin’ it happen! Above: Juniors Lori Jackson and Dan Workinger are just one of the many couples who use the lecture area for their rendezvous. Left: Jumping with excitement, the GAA Volleyball Team confers about their next move again,st the opponent. 5 The fun of jumping rope, the delight of play¬ ing tag, and thrill of learning to spell our first words are only preludes to growing up at A.C. Who can forget the sensation of going to our first varisty ball game? And we’ll always remem¬ ber our crushes on those big handsome athletes. At A.C.. grade school is a time for twirling lessons, swimming lessons, and little league. We’ll soon outgrow these childhood excitements, but for now, we’re beginning to make it happen! Desks provide room for more than just books Upon our arrival the first day of school, we each received our own desks and proudly put in our shiny new notebooks and brightly colored pencils. Then our teacher passed out all of our big, bulky books, and we placed them neatly in our desks. Recesses came and went, but not without an occasional sparkly rock or colorful leaf added to our growing collection of paraphernalia in our desks. Vacations went by and new discoveries came with us back to school to be used at show-and- tell and then to be stuffed in our already clut¬ tered desks. Along with sunny spring days and sandals come the ending pages of our books. On the last day of school, teachers collect the worn books and we begin the task of cleaning out our messy desks. As the battered notebooks and stubby pencils reappear from our once-tidy desks, shouts of joy and screams of surprise fill the room. A lost library book, old papers, and crunched leaves are found along with forgotten rocks and pictures. Happy smiles transform faces as we find what has accum¬ ulated over the past nine months of school. Those socks never seem to stay up! Ann Marie Nussbaum takes time out from her busy schedule to make major repairs. My favorite time is recess, when all of us go outside and play! We all love to swing and play hopscotch. Monkey-bars are ideal places to turn sommersaults or just hang upside down, looking at a topsy-turvy playground. Sometimes, the boys form teams and play kick- ball while the girls jump rope. Othertimes. both the boys and the girls play tag together. In the winter, if there is snow on the ground, we make snowmen or have snow battles. But when the snow melts the pavement can get all slushy. Spring is my favorite season for recesses. With¬ out our bulky coats it ' s lots easier to run and play. Once in a while, it ' s fun to mess in mud puddles, too! A bandaged hand doesn ' t stop Danny Elzey as he and Greg Little experiment with their tank. First graders combine fun with learning when Mrs. Sprunger shows them how the post office is run. Recesses provide breaks for Grade Schoolers Wait on me! Lyne Weilund doesn ' t really mind if putting on her boots slows her down Kecesses are perfect times to pass out valentines Suzette Barger and Todd Landrum keep an eye on .heir valentine box. Ready to answer Mrs. Glentzer’s question, Twila Ger¬ ber raises her hand. Grade school life highlighted with special activities Working, playing and listening are all parts of grade school education. 12 Mischievous grins lighting their faces, Jeff Kaehr and Kristi Ehrman work on their special activities. 13 School helpers provide much needed services i Cooks: Front Row; Crystal Bailey, Melba Scheider- Dick, Thelma Arnold, Lillian Steiner, Ester Klin- er, Genevieve Parrish, Lela Arnold.

Slowly, watchful eyes peek over the seat. Then, satisfied, they return back to their own area. Now, even though we haven’t any recesses and are confused with changing classes, we find plenty of diver¬ sions to occupy our spare time. As sixth graders ask about modules, experienced eighth graders roll their eyes in disgust. We think it’s rough having twelve grades in one building. But, what would we do without the high school kids to bug, and the grade school kids to drive us crazy? It’s fun, because we’re trying to make it happen! i ►- » « Left: Study hall presents an excellent opportunity for seventh graders to catch up on their homework and reading. Below Left: Sixth grader Doug Kaehr perpares for his next class. Below: Kern Martin and Karen Durbin take a few minutes to brush-up before their next Math class. Gym fun accompanies Middle School ' s noon hour Playing hockey is just one of the many activi¬ ties that Middle School people partake in during k their noon hour. 32 Noon hour provides not only time for relaxation from class, but relaxation with a special friend. Noon hour in the gym boasts a lot of energy spent. With all the mental strain of the morning, noontime provides a way of letting ourselves go. Basketball, gymnastic equipment, the peg board, volleyball, and just horsing around fill the list of different activities that go on during this time. Why is noon hour a favorite among we middle school students? Because it requires NO studying! If rough play begins, a teacher is always there to give a lending hand. If you don ' t have sneakers, stocking feet will do just as good. Soon it’s time to hit the books again and the work shoes are put back on. Let ' s follow that cute boy over there! Since the band room is a long way off for middle school students, a good two minute head start is necessary. Melissa Wilson and Nikki Brock begin their “journey”. Teresa Taylor and Cindy Pierce enjoy each others company while Jenny Sauers has her mind elsewhere. Barry Williamson finds out that rubbish piles up as he tries to clean up his locker for inspection. 34 Dawn Gerig and Julie Speakman find a few spare moments to chat before the next class. Annette Feasel places the last remaining stitches on her beanbag frog. Bumper to bumper traffic is common at noontime break. Mr. Glass finds out the hard way that no one pays attention to signal lights. L —r ' ' ;r; Middle School students center interests around gym The Middle School Office provides a place for relaxation for Mr. McIntosh, Mr. Glass, and Mr. Chronister. What would middle school life be without lockers? Not only are they a convenient wastebasket, but also a very clever way of playing a joke. Sharing a locker means the same as sharing a room. Somehow the “lockermates” draw a dotted line as to which belongs to whom. Lockers also spawn very exciting conversations as, “Why did you put those drippy boots on my theme?’’ or, “Why did I deserve a crashing blow of books from a set locker?” But wait until high school. Then there will be no locker partners, drippy boots, or books in the face because we’ll have our own private locker. Guess what happened in history? Several sixth grade girls share the latest news as they congregate beside their lockers. 37 - ' FOOTBALL Front Row: Jim Hatten, Dave Nelson, Brad Snyder, Jim McCul¬ lough, Tony Genth, John Schmitt, Dave Moses, Brad Bebout, Jeff Eyanson, Gene Gerber, Gary Edwards, Scott Mitchel, Ken Barr, Denny Call, Kevin Rich, Kevin Hirschy.

Sometimes harshly criticized for their actions, the board and Mr. Kenneth Payne spend up to seven hours a night discussing often boring events and facts. They don’t receive any overtime pay for the addi¬ tional hours put in between the regular monthly meetings. Where to buy the water softener, how to resurface the football field, where to purchase the lunch room food, when to cancel school, who to hire for the next coach, how to pay the electric bill, how to recarpet the first grade room, who to hire and who to fire: these are just a few of the many trivial and important decisions that the board must render. Often the butt of misplaced blame, the board, after much research and works, attempts to make the best decision for everyone.

Hurriedly decorating sectional halls, tiredly selling magazines, anxiously working on prom decorations, spinning- ly turning 360’s in the parking lot. desperately pondering thoughts of who to ask to the SSS banquet; we all share the victories and disappointments of our high school days.

High School students. At a ceremony before the game Senior queen candidates, Deb, Shari Arnold, Renee Bebout, an d Debbie Christman, and the Junior members of the court, Bev Braden, Lori Jack- son, and Nan Yost, were escorted to the stage by Jet play¬ ers. Jennifer Call carried roses for the queen and Jimmy Collins was the crown bearer. During the Homecoming parade, it was learned that the Seniors’ float took 3rd place, the Juniors’ came in 2nd, while the winning float was the Sophomores’ elephant. The theme this year was ‘‘Remember When ...” and Sophomore ingenuity turned this into the ‘‘Don’t Forget-Remember Win!” The A.C. var¬ sity capped the evening with a thrilling, down-to-the-last- second game, losing to winning Churubusco by only one point: 13-12. ‘‘I don’t believe it” were also the words many used to describe ‘‘Remember When ...” day at A.C. during Homecoming week. In the spirit of nostalgia, high school students dressed the way teenagers of a few years ago did. Friday of Homecoming week brought the celebration of the completion of the floats. A parade and pep session were held in the afternoon. Remember Hard work and a vivid imagination paid off for the sophomores as they won first place in the float contest.

We fight our way through the flow of other starving students and go to the cafeteria. Half way down the hall we can see the line already beginning to form. Our eyes fall on Mr. Hilbert watching over things: this dispels any ideas of making our way to the front of the line. So we wait. Finally, we receive our small daily ration. We bend over to pick up our milk from the cooler and run our hands through the whipped cream on our pie. Looking around, to see if anyone noticed, we don ' t feel so bad be¬ cause the person in front of us realizes that he forgot his money. Licking off the cream we walk on. boldly, searching through the splotches of people for a place large enough to seat all of us. This isn ' t easy if the whole gang is along. We spot a place that, with a little arrangement of chairs, will suffice. Although the food is cold and we have to duck flying peas and jello. we manage to eat. Although it all sounds so savage, we return to the cafeteria each day with a pit in ourstomachsand our feet in our mouths. •■J t You ' re kidding! You didn ' t really cut off your finger , did you ? Joys, sorrows, triumphs, defeats, fears, dreams, and memories are all shared by the people of A.C. as we try to get to know each other.

We were so scared!” Embarrassment . . . “Only one car in the park¬ ing lot and I hit it.” Relief .. . “Thank goodness it’s Friday!!” Boredom . . . “I don’t care what x equals.” No matter what the face describes about the person, you’re sure to gain some insight into the problems and wishes of the individual through his own unique expressions. 57 Spirit reaches climax during sectional preparation Stepping inside the school, a feeling of excite¬ ment and pride engulfs our minds. Monstrous signs, flashy posters, and original decorations have converted the customary humdrum hallway into jubilant corridors. We students demonstrate enthusiasm and support for our Jets by attiring ourselves in clashing outfits, tennies, and white shirts covered with catchy slogans and numerous signatures. Excitement mounts as the day con¬ tinues and the entire school involves itself. Classes become disrupted while students and teachers take time out to autograph each other ' s shirts. Our boys’ and girls’ pep clubs hold a joint meeting to rehearse some newly constructed yells. Confirm¬ ing our school spirit, we utilize our vocal chords to their fullest degree at the outset of the game. Although the final outcome shows Bellmont over us, we dejectedly depart from the Bluffton gym. A.C. ' s seniors show their support for the team with their winning Sectional hall.

When goofing around in the commons area becomes old stuff, and the halls are empty of friends, try researching on that 12-page term paper due tomorrow. The lecture area provides a great place to just sit down to relax and rap about the day’s happenings. My day at Adams Central is divided into time spent in class and time spent on independent study. Since I am not strictly scheduled into any particular area during my IS, I can use any number of the many facilities that have been made available to students in our school. The library, with its micro-reader, micro- fische, dial access, closed circuit TV, and re¬ search materials, provides me with an almost unlimited fund of knowledge. I can study maga¬ zines from past years, read the books of well known authors, or keep posted on current af¬ fairs. When I just feel like talking, empty rooms can be utilized as talk areas for my friends and me. Because of another facet of the IS program, I am free at various times during the day to pursue activities not directly related to class- work. I can work on special projects in just about anything and get credit for it. For a break in my schedule, I can take time to go to the commons for a coke and a chance to relax with some friends. 60 Old Chiang Saying “He who lets friend soak his head in a john, needs another dunking.” TV production class made a big hit at noontime by producing variety show.

More people stream into the hallway from more doorways, and we wonder how many the walls can hold. As teachers close their doors to try to keep out some of the ourselves in the midst of a human traffic jam. As we stand and anticipate the reaction of our teacher when we’re late to our next class, someone in the back gives the whole crowd a push. As people yell, more drop their books. After waiting an eternity, we decide to take a look and discover that all this time, we have been waiting in the line to get to the water fountain. After we fight our way through the rest of the mob, we sigh in relief only to find that we’re stuck behind a couple who are acting like they’ve just begun to go steady. Finally, we reach our destination, only to find we must undertake an obstacle course to get in the classroom. With heads down and faces blush¬ ing, we mutter “excuse me” at least three times and charge through clasp ed hands and whispered lovelies. As we drop into our seats exhausted, we hear a booming voice. “Do you have a good explanation for being late ...?” Dave Bertsch and Jan Beery take advantage of an empty hallway between classes.

The evening embarked with a flash as Lawrence Anspaugh photographed the individual couples. During the banquet Chester Longenberger played popular selections as the couples enjoyed candlelight dining under a starless sky of blue crepe paper. The theme, Season in the Sun, was further elaborated on with flowering trees, a wish¬ ing well, and mushrooms.

As they were stepping across the thres¬ hold of enchantment at A.C., the juniors who worked night after night painting the mural, mak¬ ing centerpieces and flowers, carrying in bricks and cement blocks for the stream, and making the final arrangements all agreed that their tiring and time-consuming efforts had been very worth¬ while, successful, and rewarding. Post Banquet entertainment was provided by Moment, Foxx and Ash. Sue Soldner concentrates on centering the whip cream on the Strawberry pie.

Before long, announce¬ ments arrived. We scurried around in govern¬ ment class, trading name cards. The last few weeks of school, memory books appeared and we wrote segments of our lives together. Then came the day when we placed all the invitations in envelopes and then wondered if we ' d re¬ membered to put in a name card. The last Saturday before graduation our class piled onto school buses and headed for King’s Island. After a long day of fun and excitement, we returned home, exhausted. On the morning of our last day of school, we seniors met for breakfast. Sunday afternoon. May 19. we gathered together as the class of “74” for the last time at our commencement.

ACTIVITIES Individual progress: key to Science success Freshmen biology students Sue Soldner, Rhonda Rutledge, and Kathy Strahm eagerly delve into a new mini-course. 72 I f » If • . i 1 If J I Carrolls and tapes surrounded the students while they studied their science. Those who wished could consume many hours of I.S. time by working on a project. Darryl Gerber won top honors for his chemistry project at the Fort Wayne Regional Science Fair by putting forth much effort. Biology students used dissection as a means of learning more about the systems of different species. Chemistry experiments turned many a normal pupil into a mad scientist as they mixed and titrated unknown substances. Individual proj¬ ects allowed the bio-chem students to research and experiment on their own. The speed of sound and light was explored more fully by the physics class. This variety of teaching techniques allowed the students to learn at their own pace. Nedra Sprunger and Melinda Caudle learn about frogs from the inside out. “It wasn’t supposed to smoke like that!” Bev Braden is surprised by the reaction of her chemistry experiment. 73 There are no hidden tapes in our A-V Center! Did you know that the boys in the A-V Center do more than sitting around pushing buttons all day? Why, after watching “Sesame Street’’ in the morning, they get down to the serious business of running the A.C. Electronics Center. The noon hours are filled with broadcasting the A.C. TV Production Class Show. The Elec¬ tronics Club visited WANE TV Station in Fort Wayne and they watched how the pros push the buttons. So now you might call our A-V boys the “professional A.C. broadcasters.” Oh well, as long as they push the right buttons.

Mrs. Grove would put each on independent study so everyone could work at his own speed. Special projects (assignments) could also be done for extra credit.

Students were ac¬ cepted on the basis of character, leadership, ability, scholastic achievement, and service. Initiation of new members took place on May 6. Miss Beavers addressed the students and their parents, and old members participated in the pro¬ gram by providing brief speeches and special music.

Mr. Barry Humble sponsored the huddle. Officers for the year were Randy Nussbaum, Capt.; Kevin Sipe, Capt.-elect; Lynn Stucky, Secretary; and Brad Nussbaum, Treasurer. The FCA members attended various churches and a swim party, and they participated in the Tri-State FCA weekend at Bellmont. 85 As the deadline approaches, Mrs. Grove and Mooch Fisher fit copy on a lay-out. Jet Stream staff streaks through year with bi-weekly editions Frantically meeting deadlines by writing stories, reporting school events, taking pictures, and typing copy, the Jet Stream staff had a busy year. Al¬ ways surrounded by pretzels, cookies, Pepsi, color¬ ful cartoons, cards, and games in the “pit”, the students who worked on the A.C. newspaper learned the tricks of the trade from their friend and sponsor, Mrs. Grove (Mom). This year, the staff financed the issues by selling ads to various businesses in the surrounding area. Highlights of the year included the Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Sectional, April Fool ' s Day, and Senior editions.

As fund-raising raked in the money, the Sun¬ shine Society dished out the activities. An added attraction, Gramp’s Night, made a big hit as the girls brought their grandpas instead of grandmas. Moppet murals and a candle light dinner wist¬ fully enhanced the theme, “Love and Fancy Free” at the Sunshine Banquet Night. The Ladies’ Tea also highlighted the year as secrets and surprises were revealed. Senior Breakfast opened the emotions inside each Senior Sunshine Girl when every one re¬ ceived a rose and all gathered to sing the Sun¬ shine Song.

Fraulein Kambs makes learning German enjoyable. 4 Adams Central added German to its foreign language department this year and hired an enthusiastic young teacher to get the pro¬ gram off to a booming start. Miss Kambs taught the essentials of Ger¬ man while adding intriguing and fun experiences along the way. The German Club’s Christmas festivities included caroling at Swiss Vil¬ lage and at the Adams County Home, eating German cookies and pastries, and playing German games. Later in the year the students visited the Heidelburg Inn in Huntington for a complete German meal including sauerbraten, red cabbage and potato pancakes. Finishing off the year with a great success, the German skit presented at Ball State University’s Foreign Language Day won first place. It looks like German is here at A.C. to stay!

As German I keeps Eric Cavanaugh’s attention, Kevin Sipe and Ned Arnold are intent on doing their own thing. Graveyard stories haunt Spanish classes. “Hola estudiantes!” is a familiar phrase to all the Spanish students, and that is the way the day’s class is started. Once in class, the students con¬ jugate verbs, write paragraphs, and listen to tapes of stories of haunted houses and ghost-ridden graveyards. A new experience for the older Spanish students began when thfey started helping teach the migrant children. Although these children stayed only six weeks, the students benefited from them greatly. The last nine weeks of school we had a fantas¬ tic student teacher from Ball State. Miss Cindy Ziegler worked with the Spanish and French stu¬ dents as her final test for her teaching degree. Then on March 22, the Spanish Club held its annual party in the gym. The party started with Spanish refreshments and continued with many skits. Scott Kohne starred as a ballerina in “If I were not a student.’’ As a finale, the Spanish Club hosted a party for retiring teacher, Miss Williamson. The freshmen and sophomore girls are faced with a big decision at the Spanish Club party: to eat or to talk. A Ball State professor speaks to the Spanish class about the colleges of America. Miss Ziegler is caught in the act of guarding the food table at the Spanish Club party. A weekly occurrence in Gov-Soc classes ts the arrival of Newsweeks magazines. Eric Cavanaugh and Dan Gremaux read their articles and write their reports. Career Day adds interest and variety to Social Studies J Adding variety to the social studies’ classes, the teachers used many audio visual learning tech¬ niques. These included watching movies, film¬ strips, and television programs. Several guest- speakers also visited during the year; in U.S. His¬ tory Mrs. Lockner discussed genealogy. Miss Tonya Conners from Honduras talked to both U.S. History and World History classes. Several student teachers also entered the scene. Miss Shirley Springer from Ball State University aided Mr. Gibbs with Sociology classes; Mr. Jack Eddington also from Ball State assisted Mr. Brown in U.S. History; in World History Mr. Lance Bryant from Huntington College ob¬ served Mr. Clampett ' s teaching methods. The high¬ light of the year was Career Day; on March 21 many representatives from businesses, hospitals, and colleges came to Adams Central to enlighten the juniors and seniors and give them a taste of each career. Pilots, morticians, drug counselors, journalists and many more visited A.C. for a day to tell of their experiences in their respective fields of work.

IJigl afiSS 95 “Learning by doing’’ was the theme of the Home Ec classes. Books, stoves, and sewing machines were essential tools in this learning. In the unit of consumer education, the freshmen made and viewed advertisements. The sophomores planned a party for their little brothers and sisters plus other children while studying about child care. The field of foreign foods was explored by the junior class. Oral reports of different countries gave the background for a foreign dish that was prepared. Also, a wassail enlightened the Christ¬ mas time for the teachers. Bridal scrapbooks and future plans were put together by the senior class to get a foreview of how that special day should be planned. For fun, a cookout was held in honor of the senior Home Ec class. Handy knowledge from experience in the Home Ec department will prove useful for that future homemaker. Miss Kambs enjoys her Wednesday noon meal as a guest of Nyla Engle and Janice Ross.

Under Miss Beavers guidance, Mike Jesionowski locates a given point in Geometry. Mr. Ransbottom and Diane Bowen confer on a math problem in Algebra I. Erasers and chalk dust lined the blackboards from constant use in each of the math rooms. Pencils were also in motion while students crammed to get their homework in on time. To relate Math to everyday life, a number of methods were used. In general math, students learned how to figure their in¬ come taxes and filled out the proper forms. The metric system was also introduced to a greater extent in that booths set up around the room contained different practice sets for the stu¬ dents to experiment with. In geometry, constructions were neatly made on typing paper and displayed on bulletin boards around the room. In the advanced classes, fundamentals were discussed to a great er degree. Lectures, multiplied by learning, plus home¬ work for drilling, equaled a better understanding of math. Even Algebra I can’t chase away the early morning blahs.

Before gym class is started there’s always time for a little messing around. Tumbling in the boy’s gym classes provided a chance for Tim Kershner to try out his flying abilities. “Where’s my tennies? She’ll take attendance in a minute. Oh — there’s a knot in the string. I’m never ready in ten minutes!” We girls improved our soccer and gymnastic skills. Each of us master minded our own routine set to music on at least one piece of equipment. We formed basketball teams and often joined the boys for what usually converted into a hilarious game. We guys really mastered the technique of whack¬ ing the hockey puck, or rather, anything in the range of the puck.

In the shop, students learn the use and operation of various machines, the lathe and welder, for instance. Each student is expected to complete a specific number of projects on which he will be graded. Then, in spare time, students may do mechanical work on their cars or cycles. Many students become good mechanics with the basic knowledge they learn in shop. In the drafting room, students learn to design and draw objects where precision really counts. In the printing room, tickets, programs, and some office papers are printed at a savings to the school. (Unfortunately, the department has yet been unable to print US currency.) 103 i - The FFA Soil Judging Team collects samples for chemical analysis. 104 As impeachment and inflation hit the administration of the FFA, Tom Liechty studies the raising prices of beans. i Watson Era in FFA ends Under the leadership of Mr. Watson and Mr. Hayworth, the Adams Central FFA com pleted a very active and successful year. In judging contests the chapter continually placed first in Crops, Poultry, Dairy, Livestock, and Soils Divisions. Five FFA members, Ron Johnson, Tom Liechty, Joe Baker, Merlin Nussbaum, and Rick Fiechter, re¬ ceived State Farmer degrees. The chapter has been active in many com¬ munity, district, and state activities. In November the FFA co-sponsored a Box Social with the Sun¬ shine Society. After the traditional Thanksgiving program, FFA members delivered food baskets to needy families in the county. Selling rat bait proved to be a prosperous fund-raising project and one noticeable improvement to the schoolgrounds was the erection of an FFA sign on the west side of the school, welcoming visitors to Adams Central and the Monroe community. FFA members and their families concluded the year by attending the annual FFA banquet. Eric Dick and Mr. Watson, examine a simple motor and its parts.

Trina Bluhm replaces the instrument for talk. Pounding away at the ol ' A.C. drum becomes tedious to Dan Beer after marching for awhile. “The beat of the drums, the white plumes bobbing back and forth, the rhythmic motion of everyone’s feet — left, right, left, right — excitement and antici¬ pation fill the air as we pass the judges’ stand. Will we win?” These were the feelings of many Jet Band mem¬ bers at the various parades in which they competed for trophies. After marching season, Concert Band hosted a visiting band from Knox, Ohio; Concert Band also presented concerts of their own. Adding spirit to basketball games, the Pep Band played rous¬ ing tunes and even provided music for the “AC Can¬ can Line.” Practicing before school in the morning, Stage Band prepared popular tunes for the Pops Concert. The best way to sum up this year in the Band Department would be to quote Mr. Collins and the Jet Band members: “Do you love band?” “Yes, sir!” 107 ■ Come on girls, I want it emphasized!” Practice makes perfect, but 3 hours?

Boys ' Pep Block stress Farmer Power at ACAC Tourney Come on, you guys!” Jacki Gerber shows her enthusiasm at the ACAC tourney. Tension mounts as Jets rally in sectional. Senior members of the Boys’ Pep Block plan their next chant during a pause in the action. The high-pitched screams and the crescen- doing chants that add to the frenzy and ex¬ citement of basketball games are sure to ex¬ plode from the Girls’ Pep Block. Their red and white gingham tops form a cheerful and enthusiastic block of color and sound. Under the direction of the cheerleaders the girls learn new cheers and help give volume to the organized cheering. Their duty and pur¬ pose is to let the team and the crowd know ‘‘Jets, we’re backing you!” In short, these f girls exhibit their school spirit by belonging to and participating in a club whose prime goal is to cheer our Jets on to victory. A Boys ' Pep Club was organized this year ’ to back the basketball and wrestling teams. Clad in their blue jeans, blue denim shirts, red suspenders, and farmer hats, the “Boys” : worked together with the Girls’ Pep Block and the Cheerleaders in backing the Jets. Many varsity players attested that the Boys’ Pep Club, yelling such chants as “Hail Jets” and ‘‘Rip’em ujx tear’em up,” was an asset to the team. Mr. Hilbert stated that after a fairly successful first year, the Boys’ Pep Club will be better organized and able to back the team 100% in future years. Anticipating two more points.

Looking at the past season, our won-loss record (3-7) does not describe the caliber of our team. Un¬ fortunate injuries to some key people and a tough schedule kept us just a fraction away from victory in many games. Mr. Doug Huffman took over as head coach when Mr. Fred Hilbert accepted the high school principal position. Coach Huffman was proud of the fierce com¬ petitive spirit shown by the team. Individual awards were: Most valuable player ... Ron Myers. Most val¬ uable off. lineman ... Doug Moser. Most valuable def. lineman . . . Gene Gilgen. Most valuable off. back ... Ron Myers. Most valuable def. back ... Jim Ar¬ nold. All-conference ... Jim Arnold, Gene Gilgen. Co¬ captains ... Ron Myers, Lynn Stucky, Gene Gilgen. Mr. Huffman stated, “I believe that the team can be proud of their efforts, even though the won-loss record doesn’t show a winning season. Our opponents can testify to the fact that we were a tough team to play against. I feel grateful to the seniors for the respect and loyalty they gave me in my first year as head coach and I’m sure their toughness on the field will help them be strong in life.” Warm-ups are a part of every pre-game activities. 113 Only four yards to go, Mr. Carr calls to the reserve team as others anxiously await another 1st down.

They won four out of seven games and tied one game with South Adams where no points were scored. Mr. Carr, the reserve coach, commented proudly that they were very dedicated players and will do very well in the future. 114 FRESHMAN FOOTBALL Carroll 0-20 Winchester 0-6 Portland 0-28 Bellmont 0-15 Warren 0-14 Norwell 8-6 Parkway 6-14 South Adams 6-8 Even though the final scores were close, the Freshman season was not a very productive one. Looking toward next season, Coach Walsh believes that the new intra-mural Junior High program should make football at A.C. the 1 winning sport, even though competition is of a high caliber. Good blocking enables Randy Mutschler to escape a loss. However, when the Jet linemen failed, the results were not very pleasant. Freshman cheerleaders: Pam Arnold, Becky Sheets, Diane Bo¬ wen.

Female jocks bat and volley “Here I am, standing on the homeplate up to bat; will I hit the ball or strike out? ‘Strike number one!’ shouts the umpire nearly breaking my eardrums as that stupid ball whizzes past. I should calm down. I can hit the ball now; I do it at practice all the time. Why can’t I do it here? ‘Strike number two!’ yells the umpire as the ball zooms past a second time. What’s happening?

Coach Humble shouts words of encouragement to his matsmen. For the first time, the ACAC Wres¬ tling Tournament was held at Adams Central, with our boys finishing third out of six teams. Another first, the A dams Central Reserve Invitational, pitted four reserve teams against each other, our reserve taking second place. Co-captains Derryl Aschliman, Dan Gremaux, and Doug Moser played a big part in this year’s victories. Derryl. along with Rick Fiechter, won second place in the sectional and the right to go to the regional. Fie also won the honor of being named “Baguba of the Year. Dan Gremaux is a four year letter- man who has wrestled in every var¬ sity AC match ever held. Dan also holds the over-all record for the most wins, most pins, and most take-downs. Doug Moser, also a four-year letter- man, participated in a wrestling camp at Bloomington last summer. FHis re¬ gular season record was 10-2. Wrestling has now been at Adams Central for four years; all four years having winning seasons. Coach Hum¬ ble summed up this season as the best he’d ever had. Although he is losing seven seniors, he looks forward to a good season next year as a lot of experienced boys are returning.

Lending a hand to the team were Randy Landis, named to the ACAC All Conference First Team, and Jim Arnold, named to the Sectional First Team. The Jets will lose these two senior boys and three others: Dave Adler, Randy Nussbaum, and Lynn Stucky. Possibly the hardest blow to next year’s team will be the loss of Coach Jo “Hobby” Gibbs.

Making a float is not all “huff-and-puff” since a float is composed mostly of paper flowers. Trina Bluhm sits quietly on the freshman float as she makes a supply of Kleenex flowers. “Remember When” day activates nostalgic feelings as Mel¬ anie Bowen and Brenda Lyons don themselves in a 1960’s costume. Banner carrier Barb Manley endures the heat as she parades through Monroe in the July 4-H parade. The Linn Grove Park catches the eye as a place of relaxation. People come in trucks, cars, and steam engines to enjoy themselves and to get a glimpse of the scenery. Drum Major Ed Steffen and banner carrier Denise Welker lead the Adams Central High School Band through Monroe during the Adams County 4-H Fair parade. The hush of the early morning, the tingle of cold January air. the sunset behind the woods, the smell of your neighbor’s pigs, the moo of his cows: these are just a few advantages of living in a farm community. When grain prices go down, almost everyone hurts: when they pop up again, farmers smile. Working during the week only makes a weekend night driving around town seem more exciting. The gas shortage doesn’t seem to be pinching too much when, after the Friday night ballgame, kids fill the Pizza King or Burger Chef. Our commu¬ nity. its businesses and people have molded our lives. And they keep teaching us how to make it happen! COPPESS CORNER On the corner of roads 124 and 27 The first settlers, other than Indians, came to this area of Indiana in 1820. When the area was officially organized in 1836 as Adams County, a base for the county seat was necessary. Since the place now known as Monroe was exactly in the center of the county, it seemed the logical location. However, because of the extreme swamp¬ iness of the place, a town could not be built there. Therefore, Decatur became the county seat. The water in the middle of the county later drained away, and Monroe existed as a town in 1847. Monroe was once the place of business for three physicians and a regularly printed newspaper. Now none of these remain, but many other bus¬ inesses have been founded in Monroe. For example, there is a liquor store in Monroe now. But it is not the first of its kind. In the nineteenth century Monroe had three saloons. In 1907 the Monroe State Bank was established. Monroe has had several banks through the years and fortunately no robberies have ever occurred. There was, however, one close call in the 1930’s when notorious gangster, John Dillinger, as legend has it, was seen inspecting the bank. But he kindly decided not to take the money of the good, small¬ town folks. The population of Monroe has grown to over 700. Besides its stores, Monroe also has three Protestant Churches: the United Methodist, the United Brethren, and the Friends, to serve the community.

D. I. C Saloon establishes business in Berne The town of Berne became a reality when the GR and I Railroad needed a station; and Berne seemed to be the ideal spot. Berne, dominated with Swiss Mennonite settlers, had only one street for forty-five years, that being Main Street. The first shop, a one-story shack, was the general store. Early in Berne’s existence, a saloon pro- motioner came to this small village. When asked if a saloon could be built in Berne, the Swiss questioned what a saloon was. They were told that it was a place to eat and drink. Thinking it would be a restaurant, the com¬ munity was happy at the thought of a saloon. Fights in the saloon soon became so common that a dog fight received more attention. At one time two banks established busi¬ nesses in Berne, but the Bank of Berne is the only one remaining.

The name “Bluff¬ ton” was suggested by Robert C. Bennett, Senior, because of the town’s situation on the more bluff¬ like side of the river. After Wells County was set aside as a county unit in 1837, two towns, Bluffton and Murray, began contesting for the honor of being named the county seat. Mr. Smith of Adams County cast the tie-breaking vote in favor of Bluffton. Once the location of the county seat was de¬ cided upon, it became necessary to arrange for a court house. It was decided that it should be located on the west side of Main Street between Market and Wabash streets. It was made of logs hewed square. Its dimensions were 24’ by 18’. In 1845, a fire destroyed the log courthouse. A new courthouse was erected south of the old site. It was built of brick in the Gothic style and was rated one of the finest buildings in smaller towns of Indiana. The old courthouse became inadequate for the growing business of the county and was con¬ demned in 1886. On August 29, 1889, the corner¬ stone of the present day courthouse was laid. The cost of the building was $125,000 with $15,000 being spent in addition for furnishings. Charles F. Adams PHOTOGRAPHY Quality Senior Photography at Reasonable Prices — Compare us — You’ll Like Us!

Miss Mary Williamson, and Mr. Martin Watson will not be seen next year in the halls of A.C., for they are retiring from their teaching duties. In order to give out knowledge, a teacher must have knowledge to give. These four teachers combined have attended at least two universities and acquired several years experi¬ ence before coming to A.C. Both Miss Beavers and Mr. Watson have taught here since about the time A.C. was originated. Most of the four teachers have always had the ambition to teach and were encouraged by friends to go into this line of work. Now that these four will have more time on their hands, “doing their own thing” takes priority. Hobbies such as golf, gardening, painting, and reading are at the top of the lists of things to do. Travelling is another activity to be enjoyed more fully. Memorable moments cannot be count¬ ed on two hands as each day is filled with different events. We at A.C. will miss rubbing shoulders with these four teachers. Their daily routine of pre¬ paring for a school day. communicating with stu¬ dents, and lending a hand to the seas of knowledge graduates to memories as A.C.’s doors close after an era of love and teaching.

from the sleepy, fuzzy, dismal Monday mornings to the loud, clear Friday afternoons, the sounds of A.C. are quite varied but always present. Mornings begin with the swish of the bus door and the click of its handle. As the radio screeches out the latest hit song from WOWO or WMEE. yelling kids try to be heard above all other noises. More kids stomping onto the bus wake a sleeping senior with Can I sit here? As we hurry into school to the tune of the loud warning buzzer, we are greeted with shouted messages or dropped books. Struggling for a victory, A.C. ' s Mark Mitchel tackled by a Busco” player. Chugging along on his trike. Mr. Potter displays his hidden musical talent. Doug Klinger helps with the construction of a Homecoming float. Typical scenes in the A.C. library often in¬ clude these casual poses. After a hard day’s work the bus is a welcome sight. Arriving at school, Jodi Isch collects her books for morning classes. The library, said to be a place of quiet¬ ness, offers many diversions to an unatten- tive studier. The person who sits in the next carrol shuffles his feet, producing static electricity, and scrapes his chair on the legs of the carrol, causing the whole row to quiver. Turning pages and rumpling papers, the neighbor decides to erase a mistake and shakes the row of carrols, producing an odd thumping sound. As we receive snatches of a middle school lesson from the lecture area, the miniature tele¬ vision in the booth across drones on with the most exciting soap opera. Rattling mon¬ ey in pockets reminds us of lunch time, so we end our morning’s I.S. and head for the cafeteria. A small rumble of talk wel¬ comes us to the lunchline. A background of clattering plates and cooking food covers up the sounds of dropping silverware and money. The ringing of the cash register brings a response of jingling change. As we near the end of the day, all hopes of accomplishing anything are abandoned. As cars and busses screech and roar out of the parking lot, quietness once more reigns at A.C. As we once more say goodbye to the “Halls of Central. some of us for only 3 months and some of us forever, the words of this poignant song prick our hearts. For some, these words offer a happy reminder of a fun-filled, but too short, summer. For others, it brings to an end the security, homework, and fun that this school has given. Those of us remaining in school that last week after graduation reflect on those “lucky seniors with questions of “how many more years do I have? while those fortunate seniors think of “how fast it all went. We replace books with swimsuits, long bus rides for bicycle trips, days in school with hours on the beach. Of course, our school days can be quickly slipped into our drawer of memories. And within these memories of teachers and friends is the dominant remembrance that whatever, when¬ ever or wherever “it was, we know that WE MADE IT HAPPEN! . v ' s sfiSi « § ■ pWs k vv®» s mBl ilwtw Mv- (HMHlMfiMHMMIf IIIIMHMfMIMlWtil Vl IM M M M M MI • • I • f M i I M »♦ M M M M I M |J ifthlMMIIMlIlH IfJ M Ml III ♦ M M • M » » III MfHMMMIMIIMUH M 11 » ♦ M • M M M M • I!
