Perhaps all of life is just that — a battle of wits a series of moves. Some moves are carefully planned out — others are forced upon us suddenly. Some moves bring us success and help us advance toward our goal — others lead to frustration and check-mate. The moves we make are limited by the rules of the game, the size of the playing board, the other players. We cannot always move when and where we choose; sometimes our way is blocked. Learning to live within the limitations is not undesirable compromise; it is accepting a challenge. -,V t. Chess is a challenge to the thinking man. It taxes his ability to concentrate and think ahead and provides the discipline of study. In order to meet challenges — in chess or on the playing field, in the classroom or in life — we must concentrate on the important values, think ahead to the ultimate goal, discipline mind and body to free it from limitations of weakness. 7 The problem solved, the game won, the test questions answered correctly, or the game lost, the test failed, the problem unsolved — all are challenges and when accepted, all provide an opportunity to learn more about self, our friends or enemies, our environment, our faith. Meeting challenges — picking up the gauntlet — fighting city hall — all add zest to living. Winning isn’t everything; it’s how you play the game. Sometimes the game is fun — other times, pure agony. We may wonder why we play, why we bother to struggle. Whether for the challenge or the excitement, the discipline or the fun — we play the game because there is given to man by his Creator an indomitable spirit that strives against the things of this world to reach the fullness of Perfection Itself, the Eternal Source of all Wisdom. 13 1 4 — Academics The challenge of the thinking man — to absorb facts, to acquire knowledge, to perceive through the senses — and then to apply God-given intelligence and emotion to arrive at wisdom, understanding, compassion, humility, a sense of wonder, an awareness of the Creator — to become the glory of God, man fully alive. All this begins from the first moment of life — much of it is developed through academic experience. Here at Andrean the challenge of learning is respected, and, like chess, the challenge becomes more interesting as the game continues. k H l A® _ S s f T We dedicate this book to our loving and joyful memory of Father Vincent C. Eckert, C.S.B. 1915-1978 who inspired us as a priest, kept Andrean in operation as treasurer, attended to our needs for food, heat, shelter, and order, spent himself tirelessly in the realization of our dreams for a stadium, amused us often with his keen sense of humor, and delighted us always as a friend. Dedication — 1 7 Administration It’s not so lonely at the top for Andrean’s administration. Father Schwenzer, Sister Anne Renee. Sister Christopher, and Father Benwitz meet frequently to iron out difficulties and plan policies and programs for the future. When the pressures of teaching and studying become great, teachers and students may find themselves envying the life and work of the administrators — but few appreciate the intensity of their responsibility and the extent of their duties. Andrean is fortunate in having four dedicated persons at “the helm.” In the performance of their tasks they strive to put the interests and welfare of the Andrean community front and center. Rev. Ronald Schwenzer, S. Anne Renee, SS.C.M. C.S.B. Associate Principal Principal CENTER: Father Schwenzer spends many hours tackling every principal’s 1 Excedrin headache: budgeting.

Assistant Principal for Girls Guidance For being the busiest place at Andrean, the library is amazingly the quietest. Students and teachers find it the perfect retreat for doing homework, research, or just relaxing after a long day. Sister Emma, Andrean’s librarian, cares for the 12,000 volumes on the shelves as well as the countless machines and materials of the A-V Department. The dedication of the four counselors in the main hall helps Andrean students through the maze of study and career choices: planning, schedules, job and scholarship in formation, and even personal problems or aspirations.

Manuel Chircop, C.S.B. Guidance Counselor, New Testament Academics — 1 9 Theology All schools promote intellectual and social development, but only the Catholic school provides for the spiritual aspect of life. Andrean’s Theology Department fulfills this need by leading the student to explore his relationship with God, the universe, his fellow man, and himself. For Freshmen, Biblical Literature traces the trials and successes of the Chosen People in the Old Testament. Sophomores study the life of Christ and the early Church in New Testament. With a firm understanding of Scripture, Juniors turn to Psychology while Seniors examine Morality and Faith and Sacraments. Such careful attention to spiritual needs results in adults who can lead mature, meaningful lives. S. Mary Anne Nemec, SS.C.M. Department Chairman, Faith and Sacraments, Psychology S.

Andrean’s English Department places special emphasis on developing the student’s ability to communicate in writing and to understand the major themes in literature. While the first three years stress fundamental concepts, Seniors may choose from several electives. For the first time this year, Andrean offered College Composition, a course in which students could simutaneously fulfill their fourth year English requirement and earn college credits. Those with special talents or interests may expand their studies through Journalism, Public Speaking, and Dramatics, also a new course this year. Unlike some subjects that are seldom used, English is an indispensable component of everyday life. S. Gilmary, SS.CM.

For many students at Andrean the answer to this question is Si, yo hablo espanol. Oui, je parle franqais. Ja, ich spreche Deutch. Dico linguam Latinam. Andrean students may pursue either a modern or classical language. Grammar, pronunciation, and composition all serve a vital function in the study of Spanish, French, and German. Teachers often employ the use of tape recorders, visual aids, and records in order to improve these three skills. A student may also study Latin to further understand the “roots” of his own language. With any of these four foreign languages a student not only learns a second language but also gains insights into the cultural aspects of foreign life.

Accounting demands precision — getting the books to balance is no easy task. Through a simulated business operation Clerical Office Practice students type, file, and acquire proficiency in the use of equipment such as dictaphones, duplicating machines, and calculators. This year the Advanced Typing class employed its talents to type address labels for the Heart Fund. Other courses that are available are General Business, Consumer Education, Advanced Business, Business Law, and Business English. The Business Department gives students skills to meet the challenges of today’s business world.

Academics — 27 Social Studies More than just a source of important facts, Andrean’s Social Studies Department gives the student new perspectives of the world around him. For sophomores. World History traces man’s development from the Stone Age to the Atomic Age. Juniors remain closer to home in U.S. History, while the Seniors explore Government, Sociology, or Economics. Non-Western Civilization is available for those who desire a broader understanding of other peoples and cultures. Interested students participated in a Black History Week during February and inter-school conferences on current issues throughout the year. Ultimately, the Social Studies Department aims to create an informed citizen whose awareness of past and present will help insure the future.

BOTTOM RIGHT: Mrs. Weiss sends Chuck Krcmaric and Colleen Blake to Sister Gilmary, the other half of her teaching team in Advanced U.S. History, for work on a panel discussion. From the pocket calculator to the space program, mathematics plays an ever expanding role in everyday life. More and more students require a firm foundation of mathematical concepts for everything from computer technology to balancing a checkbook. Through a three-track program tailored to meet the student’s needs and abilities, Andrean’s Mathematics Department strives to create a mathematically superior student. Beginning with elementary courses such as General Math or Algebra I, the student can progress to Trigonometry or Calculus during his senior year. Meanwhile, he learns to approach and solve problems logically and systematically. Through the Mathematics Department, students acquire the language of numbers — the key to today’s technical world.

Mrs. Mary Mesterharm General Math, Algebra 1, II Mrs. Mary Ann Mestrich Analytic Geometry, Geometry, Trigonometry Science From the moment a freshman steps into a biology class, Andrean’s Science Department seeks to explain the phenomenon of the universe. Biology students view an endless parade of living creatures from the lowliest amoeba to man himself. Chemistry and Physical Science probe the basis of all matter, the atom, while Physics examines laws governing the behavior of matter. For the truly scientifically motivated. Advanced Physics, Electronics, Electricity, Organic Chemistry, and Advanced Biology are available. The Science Department aims to develop scientific interest and an inquiring mind within students through exposure to many facets of modern science. S. Joan Marie, SS.C.M.

Through activities like football, basketball and volleyball, Andrean’s physical education program promotes physical fitness and sponsors recreational sports. Students learn team discipline and good sportsmanship — values important not only on the playing field, but also in life. Health and Safety classes teach proper personal hygiene and first-aid techniques. All the knowledge in the world is useless without the physical ability to apply it.

Believing that “a stitch in time saves nine” and money, — clothing students create blouses, skirts, and jumpsuits to supplement their wardrobes. The Foods classes whip up delectable delights that are bound to tempt any palate. Applying their talents, foods ' students helped with Daddy Date Night as well as joined with the clothing classes to present a Style Show and Luncheon for the faculty in May.

Academics — 35 Fine Arts Through the Art and Industrial Arts Department Andrean students have the opportunity to nurture their creative talents. Art I classes cover the basics of drawing, color, and design while Art II delves into advanced drawing and ceramics. Students in Art III and IV work with oils and acrylics. The Art classes help prepare students for careers in art, provide an interesting hobby, or broaden students cultural background. The Industrial Arts Department helps students explore the areas of design, interior decorating, engineering, and industry. Through drafting, woods, metals, and plastics classes students become acquainted with industrial practices. The students who get their hands dirty at Andrean are on the creative end of the academic spectrum. TOP: Mr. Billick guides Creative Design student.

Beginning and Concert Band allow the instrumentally-inclined student to use his talents well. Choral provides the student who has vocal ability with the opportunity to develop his potential. Music Appreciation gives the student the experience of music as an important part of everyday life. The music department has furnished the school with a fine marching band for the second year, and the concert band has played for various school functions. The music department is a vital part of the school, and Andrean would be incomplete without it. TOP: Order is of the essence in cataloging books, as Sister Emma and Mrs. Celenica well know.

Besides attending classes that teach Christian beliefs and morals, students may participate in the Liturgy every day and paraliturgical services during the year to further their Community and prayer experiences. Yet another opportunity for spiritual growth is each class’ retreat. Four days are set aside in the school calendar, one for each class, in order to allow students the best possible opportunity for a good retreat. These retreats, in which students and teachers unite in their search for God, include discussion groups, slide presentations, lectures from guest speakers, and the Liturgy. Strong participation in these activities is the cornerstone of the Andrean religious community.

Flowers were fluffed, the float constructed, cars decorated, and queens nominated. The car judging, in which Therese Modrak won Best Car, started off the festivities. Instead of individual class floats, this year the classes combined their efforts to create one float for the annual parade down Broadway. Our own marching band and pom-pon girls entertained the shivering and rained-upon fans at halftime. The speakers failed at the crucial moments: the beginning of the Ninerettes’ routine, causing them to stand in the rain for an eternal five minutes, and at the announcement of the Queen. Shauna Boliker was on hand to present Mary Lopez with her crown. The game itself was a fierce struggle which the Fifty- niners lost. Yet even after the last flower was gone and the last car cleaned, the spirit of fun and enthusiasm remained. DP: This year’s only float represents a masterpiece of •operation among the four classes.

Come ride the magical ‘Carousel’ and have the time of your life!” These were the words that beckoned the couples attending the 1977 Homecoming Dance. Streamers and balloons transformed the cafeteria into a huge merry-go-round, sending the couples whirling into fantasy worlds of their own. The music of Elijah Jumal enhanced this whimsical atmosphere and soon made the couples forget the recent Homecoming defeat.

Under the direction of Father Kelly, the cast and crew spent many long hours of hard work to produce a well-performed drama. The play tells of Charlie Gordon, a mentally retarded man who becomes part of an experiment to increase man’s intelligence. As the result of experimental surgery, Charlie’s intelligence increases to the genius level. But he discovers that he will soon regress to the old Charlie Gordon. This presentation, done in “theatre-in-the-round” style, was another success for the Andrean Drama Club. CHARLIE GORDON . . Michael Blensdorf DR. STRAUSS PROF.

The musical centered around Madame Dubonnet’s School for Girls in southern France in the 1920’s. The play creatively blended music comedy, and dancing as it told of a love story between a number of characters. Both cast and crew worked hard to make this production successful. The cast, with the help of Ellen Tucker and Mrs. Betz, had to learn to speak with accents and to dance the old time steps. Under the direction of Fr.

The Junior class achieved the highest score, conquering the Sophomores. Seniors, and Freshmen, respectively. The " never-say-die " Sophomores, however, captured the Spirit Award. The Friday assembly began with the traditional “call of the Classes” and with the lighting of the Armageddon torch.

These injuries and other difficulties compelled the 59ers to accept a record of 5 wins and 5 losses. Despite the record, the team surpassed their opponents in first downs 141 to 78. With the coaching of Mr. Pete Billick, the 59ers passed for 1,198 yards and rushed for 1,347 yards. Defensively, the team allowed their opponents an average of only 50 yards passing and 84 yards rushing per game. The climax of the season occurred at Portage where the 59ers came within 2 yards of defeating the Indians, the 1977 state champions, only to lose 9-14.

GAA — 107 Matmen Wrestle Tough Season The varsity wrestling team had to face a difficult season this year. Under the direction of a new coach, Mr. Prochno, the team finished with a 3-7 record. Their chances for victory at dual meets were lessened by the forfeiting of two upper weight classes at every dual meet. Several team members lacked experience, but they made up for it by working hard. MVP Rick Henry, a 145 lb. contender, had a personal record of 23-2 and was undefeated through the regional tournament. Mark Ellison, a 98 lb. wrestler, captured the MIP title. The reserve team, composed almost entirely of first-year wrestlers, ended with a record of 2-9. Once again, dual meet scores were affected by forfeiting. There is excellent potential throughout the line-up which will provide for a good team in the near future.

We’ve done a lot of growing in these years — we look back on many things: good times, friends, fun, laughter — hassles, gray days, boring lectures. All are memories now — we’ve come to a beginning. We embark upon college, married life, the working world. Graduation day brings the sadness of leaving our friends and a large part of our life behind. It also brings a sense of accomplishment, the joy of new friends, the challenge of the future. Andrean has prepared us well to meet the challenges — we leave high school with an excellent academic background — the knowledge of how to survive socially — and, most importantly, a religious foundation upon which to build a future life.
