Nothing is instant. Nothing is absolute. Man does not exceed this rule; man glorifies it. Physically, man grows and deteriorates. Spiritually, man becomes. 2 3 Becoming, in essence, is a process of development or transcendence; every successive action in a sequence of actions must transcend the previous in increased awareness of reality and spirituality. 4 An action is a reaction to a previous action; a glass breaks in response to being dropped; an animal runs in response to fear. Man acts in response to the concept of reality he has created. Every man is an individual — with unique vision and a distinct concept of reality. Becoming requires vision; an outer eye and an inner eye. The outer eye collects physical impressions. The inner eye perceives spiritual impressions. The inner eye constructs the concept of self through which we interpret what the outer eye sees. 7 Reality, therefore, comes from within. A man lacking outer vision is still a man. A man lacking inner vision is nothing. The formulas for becoming are manifold; for every individual concept of reality there are as many methods of expressing that concept in our actions — through work, through play, through God, Yet there exists only one catalyst. The catalyst is man’s capacity to recognize the complete reality which leads, inevitably, to the complete existence. ii 12 academics Our common interest? That force which draws us all together for approximately thirty -six hours a week? Education. For the sheer exhil- aration of it, or at least the legal proof of hav- ing endured the process, we read, write, study, explore, hope for understanding. Surprisingly enough, education is the same force which draws those who answer our many questions and ask even more.

Known words are used to define new ones ; division is understood as the inverse of Academies — 19 multiplication ; our concept of God matures as we build upon past experiences of his presence If activity can be measured by the amount of mail a given department receives in one week, the Guidance Counselors would justly be classified among the most active. Catalogues from various colleges, applications for transcripts, career information, and registration forms for stand- ardized testing regularly cross the desks of our four counselors. With their help, students plan for the future by making wise course selections, and taking steps to insure success in their post-graduate activities. 20 — Academics The secretarial staff main- tains order within a potential chaotic situation.

Working always from the known to the unknown, we are able to comprehend Theology is academic knowledge of religion, but also the continuing experience of personal encouter with Christ. Through analysis of the Bible, our psychology, and our social morals and tradition, we are free to shape our own personalities with God as the center.

David O. Klein, C.S.B j foter Mary Anne Nemec, SS.C.M. A mere acquisition of knowledge does not imply becoming. Education, like becoming, Academies — 23 requires a definite stimulus in order to produce results. That stimulus is curiosity. Language is the center of our understanding. We explore plays, stories, poems, and novels as a sampling of our language and culture. Through the analy- sis of what others have written, and an exacting study of gram- mar, usage and composition, the English Department strives to equip students with the essen- tials for self-expression and learning, that is, reading, writ- ing, listening, and speaking. The same youthful fascination which prompted such questions as: “ Why is the sky blue?” Academics — 25 and “ How far is up?” is the motivation behind the process of education. Without a question, 26 — Academics With the growing interde- pendence of nations, commu- nication between different peoples takes on added impor- tance. Through the Language Department’s programs in French, Spanish, German, and Latin, students are given an opportunity to learn to communicate in different lan- guages, to explore the back- ground and culture of differ- ent nations and races. There is always the underlying hope that communication is the road to peace. an answer is meaningless. Nothing is so easy to forget as that which means nothing to us, Academics — 27 The social studies department aims to provide the balance necessary in a student’s education. It attempts to give insights into today’s world through an examination of its social, political, and eco- nomic institutions. Through a study of our nation’s history and its foundations in Western Europe, we trace the evolution of modern problems in order to arrive at possible solutions in a future setting. that which we have no desire or need to remember. Given an inquisitive mind, there are many 28 — Academics branches of the “ tree of knowledge ” stretched out and ready for the climbing. The experience Academics — 29 A common interest and love for music allows for a close relationship between band and choral mem- bers. The joy of being entertained as they entertain, helps members of the music department to become better people and better performers. can be mind-boggling — the view breathtaking: there is always another branch. One of the 30 — Academics Visual expression demands creativity, imagina- tion, and hard work at a refined skill. Increased enthusiasm prompted the creation of an evening art class to go beyond the school’s course structure. most crippling dangers in the process of education is to consider oneself fully educated. A knowledge of machines, their function, utility, and components is one aspect of industrial arts. A knowledge of architecture, design and construction is another. The Industrial Arts program serves to extend industry beyond the level of functional sci- ence to an art — it allows one to express himself through technology. Learning to work with your hands as well as your mind is important in our increasingly technological environment. With that assumption , a person ceases to become — and begins to stagnate like a pool of still 32 — Academics An understanding of the prin- ciples of good health and the care and well-being of the body are the objectives of the Physical Education Department.

Business education endeavors to simplify (or at least explain) the complicated proce- dures involved in the manage- ment of personal finances and the in’s and out’s of daily busi- ness transactions. This is accom- plished by giving the students practical experience in the use of techniques and machines needed to function in the world of busi- ness. “ teachers . ” Letting curiosity die blinds a person to any new possibilities, and deadens The Home Economics Department gives students self- sufficiency on their way toward maintaining a home, a family, and a budget. Appealing to a wide variety of students, the course offerings provide work- able knowledge in nutrition and food preparation coupled with the ability to transform several yards of fabric into a fashiona- ble garment. his ability to expect the unexpected. And that spells the end of education. No curiosity . . .

Over and above a diet of numerical calculations and equation- solving, mathematics students form concise patterns of thinking for present and future use. The department offers a choice of three tracks based on interest and ability. All these tracks aim for high achieve- ment and the progress of the student. no learning ... no becoming. The goal toward which all education strains is wisdom. Cultivating our sense of wonder and an inborn quest for knowledge, the sciences prepare students for dealing with the physical realities of our exist- ence. Biology provides an essential knowledge of living organisms. Chemistry gives us a view into an infinitesimal world of atomic structure. Physics provides us with how’s and why ’s of matter and energy. The diversity of these branches of science all come together in the consistency of the laws of nature. 38 — Academics 40 student life “THEY LIVED A COMMUNAL LIFE . . ” The purpose of Andrean is to incorporate people into a religious community as well as an academic community. To this end. Andrean offered several religious opportunities. Father Murphy, the school chaplain, celebrated Mass each morning in the pri- est ' s chapel. He also distributed communion during the lunch hour. The newly formed liturgical com- mittee arranged a special Mass each Thursday. Three retreats were scheduled for each class and were usually held after school on Fridays. Penance services were held before Christmas and Easter. Furthermore, Juniors and Seniors participated in the Diocesan Search Program. The variety of reli- gious opportunities invariably leads to a greater Christian bond among those willing to participate. 42 — Student Life Opposite Page: Bottom left: Mr. Lee and company lead a song during a penance service.

Student Life — 43 FIFTY-NINER SPIRIT LIVES ON Homecoming of 1974 came complete with excitement over the game, the crowning of the queen, the floats, and all that Homecoming stands for. 1974 saw the return of a Homecoming bonfire, something which last made its appearance at Andrean in 1970. The Sophomores helped the Freshmen in their first Homecoming, but the award for best float was taken by the Jun- iors. The game could be termed an ego-trip for the members of the Andrean team on that cold night, as the Niners clobbered Emerson 41 to 0. The Ninerettes again gave half time entertain- ment, and practically froze to death in doing so. But as the queen candidates arrived on the field, everyone forgot the cold, at least long enough to see Cindy Lesch crowned Homecoming queen for 1974. Top: Car caravan prepares to pull onto Broadway.

The theme, “Saturday in the Park.” charac- terized by the music of “Changes” set the scene for this autumn event. Holly, mistletoe, candles, bells, snow — all are a part of “A Christmas Fantasy.” The joy and peace of the holiday season are reflected in a dreamlike atmosphere complete with the cheer of the Yuletide as couples enjoy the sound of “Monterey.” Top: Couples enjoy dancing.

Walls and walls of murals created the story- book atmosphere, transforming the cafeteria into the “Land of Make Believe.” The back-down-to- earth music was provided by “Brick.” Top: G. Gomolka, K.

Student Life — 51 jflL Tennessee Williams’ play. The Glass Menagerie was presented by the Andrean Drama Club on the evenings of November 7, 8, 9, and 10. The play had one of the smallest casts an Andrean production has ever had, yet it drew the largest student audi- ence. The play dealt with the conflict between Laura, a young crippled girl who has escaped real- ity because of her defect, and her proud, overbear- ing mother, Amanda. Tom, Amanda’s son, is a poet with a job in a wareho use and is forced to act with- out pity. In the hope of finding Laura a husband, Amanda persuades Tom to invite Jim O’Connor to dinner. Laura’s first gentleman caller proves to be warm but spoken for. 52 — Student Life Opposite Page: Top: Amanda Wingfield, portrayed by Val Visclosky, tries to sell magazines to a friend.

Student Life — 53 $1 The second Andrean produc- tion of 1975 was the play, “The Life and Death of Almost Every- body,” by David Campton. It contained no scenery or cos- tumes, and depended on the imagination of the audience for its impact. Directed by Fr. Mof- fatt, this provocative comedy was a success for the Drama Club.

The Senior Class once again proved their prowess by narrowly edging out the juniors. Due to various extramural sports activities scheduled for Saturday, May 17, the Administra- tion consented to a shortened class schedule which allowed the competition to begin early Friday after- noon. The mandatory assembly was characterized by demonstrations of class spirit which included: an Olympic-style march, posters, a hatching egg, helium balloons and a messy pudding-eating con- test. The various games served to unify the mem- bers of each class in a spirit of friendly rivalry. For the third consecutive year, the Class of ' 76 captured the Spirit Award through its mighty efforts at the Tug of War. As a novel experience for Andrean, the evening sockhop was held in the courtyard. Top: Y Rebeck relaxes after a hectic day in the equipment room. Above: M. Verdeyen’s ability earned 4 senior points.

Considering the winning tradition of the previous Andrean Hockey teams, this season’s team proved to be surprisingly different. It had fewer experi- enced players and lost more than four games in one season. Nevertheless, this will be one of the most remembered seasons in our history of hockey. Dur- ing this season, the team registered its 100th victory and 600th goal. The bigg est surprise was saved for the last game of the season when the team brought the 4Vi foot Indiana State Championship Trophy home to Andrean. In the drive for the state champi- onship, Andrean scored 14 goals and only had 2 goals scored against them. The offensive thrust was provided by the strong forechecking of Ray Ramu- sack and high scorers Jim Tomko (5g, 2a), Hugh Sloan (4g, la), and Dave Poplon (2g, la). The stal- warts on defense were captain Larry Matunas, Joe Huerta, and Bryan Collins. They were backed up by the superb goal-tending of freshman Bob Tomala and excellent coach, Fr. Klein. Student Life — 61 FOREVER DREAMING The hard work of the candy sale and paper drive was culminated on April 25 in the Junior-Senior Prom held at the Greek Hellenic Cultural Center. Post-Prom activities w ere held at Bridge-Vu Theater.

One of the most entertaining was the Talent Show. “The Dancing Machine,” Amado Arceo and Linda Jones won $10 each for their performances. Another assem- bly was held to close Spirit Week which proved school spirit is still alive at Andrean. The highlight of the assembly was the volleyball game between the juniors and seniors, in which the juniors emerged victorious. The Christmas assembly included a skit entitled “God the Father” and a performance by the mixed choir during Mass. The cancer assembly pre- sented the facts on one of the major killers in our time. The students responded by sending “mice to college” to aid in cancer research. The National Theater Company s presenta- tion of The Miracle Worker provided a chance for students to experience professional drama.

COOPERATION SPARKS STUDENT ACTIVITIES The primary aim of this year’s Student Council was to establish a more viable relationship between administration and students. More valuable than planned activites of Student Council were the serious efforts to include more students in the decisions and work of the Council. Council-sponsored activities this year included such events as pep-assemblies, dances, sock-hops, Christmas card and Valentine deliveries, a Talent Show, Recreation Night and Armageddon. Selling carnations on Valentine ' s Day was profitable; the proceeds went to the Heart Fund. Student Council assisted in the formation of new clubs such as the Hockey Club, Teens Against Cancer, and the Human Relations Club. Top right: After an exhausting day, a sock-hop was most enjoyable.

Organizations — 69 GREAT GIFTS AND EXPECTATIONS Leadership, character, scholarship, and service are the qualities that distinguish members of the National Honor Society. With much to give in the way of knowledge, the members tutored Boy’s Town students once a week. Faculty and Adminis- tration called upon the willing service of the National Honor Society to act as guides at Open House for incoming freshmen. Under the supervi- sion of their moderator. Sister Maria Goretti, the members again assumed the responsibility of organizing and conducting student assemblies for the induction of members. Top right: Students are initiated biannually.

Organizations — 71 EVERYONE ENJOYS A PARTY Y.A.R.C. is a youth group organized to bring a measure of joy into the otherwise simple lives of retarded children. The club is active and because of its goals, influential at Andrean. Holiday parties for the children were funded by bake sales.

Essentially, the club revives old Latin culture and traditions. To this end, club members cele- brated Saturnalia, a traditional Latin feast of harvest. The club also made a study of state and university seals, with emphasis on their Latin subtitles. Upper left: Latin Club Officers: . to r.: N. Jelovic, M. Gerber- ick, T. Dauro, B. Rueter.

Organizations — 73 FURTHER ADVANCEMENT Mu Alpha Theta, the Math Club, in its first year, endeavored to pro- mote an interest in mathematics. Although the first meetings were largely organizational, the Club’s members anticipated contests and guest speakers. The moderators. Father Cylwicki and Mr. Giorgio pro- vided bonus problems whereby club members could increase their mathematics average. Although it was in its first year the Electronics Club proved to be useful to many interested students. The meetings mainly consisted of repairing and learning more about electronic equipment.

However, the club collected a surprising amount in view of the obstacles. The response was greatest after a special assembly in which Father J. Whitley, C.S.B. spoke to the stu- dents.

Organizations — 75 SOURCE OF ENJOYMENT The drama productions at Andrean were, as usual, expertly done. The plays were exceptional in three aspects: first, the fundamental themes intended by the writers were captured well. Second, the presentations attracted the largest audiences of Andrean’s dramatic efforts. Third, the cast demon- strated that dramatic talent is not contained in a few people as no member of the first cast partici- pated in the second cast.

Tim Waite, in his third year of Andrean basketball, was awarded the MIP title for this year’s season. Mark Manuel and John Dough- erty shared the MVP title.

After the loss to Westside, the City Tournament Champs, the team had a short winning streak beating Merrillville, Crown Point, and then Portage.

Sports — 115 With a 20-4 record for the 1975 season and a 112-14 record over the past five years, the Andrean golfers can be titled “outstanding.” Some outstand- ing varsity season averages (9 hole) were set by seniors Scott Vidimos (38.3), Mark Matovina (41.8), and Dan Sikich (42.5), and juniors Larry Koval (40.6) and Mark Bobin (42.5), and freshman Greg Matovina (42.8). The Andrean go lf team won the city champ title. This was Mr. Chelap’s fourth straight year as Coach of a champion team. Larry Koval was honored as the Medalist in the city meet. The team’s skill led them to the sec- tionals where they qualified as a first place team. Scott Vidimos was Andrean’s top senior athlete. He had been a Medalist in five out of eight high school tournaments in the spring of 1974. Scott received Andrean’s Most Valuable Golfer Award for 1972, 1973, and again in 1974. Scott’s 18 hole average for 1973 was 76.4. With rounds of 76 and 71, Scott became the Indiana State Champion last year. Andrean congratulates Scott, our star athlete. Varsity: . to r.: M.

Out of the draft came four teams, captained by Joe Grembowicz, Brad Karagin, Tony Farag, and Kevin Luksus. Each team participated in both football and soccer. Brad Karagin’s team won the championship. High scorers for the season were headed by Greg Gomolka (4 TD, 1 1 goals) and Luis Bicalho (2 TD, 12 goals). Intramural basketball drew a wider response, with each sophomore, junior, and senior homeroom participating, but the most enthusiastic performance came from the sophomores. The sophomore champion- ship was taken by H.R. 211 with H.R. 4 runner-up. Top scorers included Tom Martin (225 pts.) and Tom Callaway (213 pts.). H.R. 220 won the junior championship and 206 came in second in the play- offs. Senior champs were H.R. 215. At the end of the season, there was an all-star game between juniors and seniors. The seniors emerged vic- torious 59-38.

Over the span of four years, the class of ’75 has directed an enthusiastic spirit, so evident in the early years, to constructive ends, so evident in the later years. In itself the class has moved together closely and matured considerably. The accomplishments of this class are a testament to its basic spirit — open lunch, ini- tiated by the class of ’75, extended the limitations of trust between students and administration. The better quality of pep assemblies and skits were a product of a greater school spirit. In the reinstitution of the Christ- mas assembly, the bonfire and the talent show, the class demonstrated a regard for tradition as well as change. i !
