Edward Heidt, C.S.B. Mrs. Joyce Thomas 3 . . . For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven . . . Springtime — the bloom of new color and new life; Summertime — the soft chatter of birds; Autumn — the crackle of falling leaves; Wintertime — the chill of brisk winds. Changing seasons, changing times — everything grows and develops within the hours of eternity. Lifetime — this is our time. 4 . . . a time to be born and a time to die . . . Everything has a beginning and an end. Andrean comes into existence the day we enter it as freshmen. For four years it is the vital force and focus of our young lives. Then, it blinks out suddenly, like a candle, the day we graduate. Yet, Andrean lives on, not only in our hearts and memories, but in our beliefs and actions. It remains an indelible, inseparable part of who we are — and what we become. 5 . . . A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together . . . Have you ever cast a rock deep into the waters where it became engulfed by the seas and lost forever? Yet that very same stone can serve a purpose if placed with others and used instead to construct a building. Our lives are similar to that stone. We have a choice as to whether we want to be cast into our vast universe, overpowered and lost among the evils of society, or intertwined with others in our likeness, striving for set goals and making of ourselves something significant. For we, the stones, are the builders for eternity. And we must determine whether we want to become stumbling blocks or stepping stones. . . . A time to seek and a time to lose . . . The puzzle pieces lie scrambled before us, waiting to be placed together to form a composite picture, to solve the puzzle that is our future. Searching among the pieces, we try to choose those which will best fit into our lives. Through our learning and experience we begin to get an idea of what the final picture should look like. The pieces, however, do no t always link together as we plan. Our arrangements often change from day to day and year to year, and we lose sight, for a time, of the design. We find ourselves beginning again, setting aside old pieces, picking up new ones, searching for those values which will bring fulfillment and meaning, for the pieces that complete the pictures of our lives. Now is the time to rend the fabric of our former lives, to put away childish things, to discard and destroy the foolish ideas we once accepted unquestioningly. Youth is a time to ask, to seek reasons, to demand answers — from ourselves as well as from others. Only when we have replaced our childhood behavior and beliefs with the actions and values of adulthood can we begin to construct our new garments of maturity. . . . A time to rend and a time to sew . . . 9 . . . A time to love, a time to hate . . . . . . A time for war, a time for peace . . . Sitting back, looking upon each class — the monotony of everyday routines, the long hours of studying and working — can create a feeling of discontent and irritation. Yet the unity between student and teacher, the concern, participation, and involvement, sometimes overpower us. The days are inescapable. We must face them, however, and put our best foot forward, guided by our strongest efforts. ... A time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted . . . The seed of curiosity, the stem of learning, the leaves of impression, the buds of enlightenment — together these form the plant of knowledge which must be nourished and cared for properly. Our knowledge is continuously growing and branching. And our purpose is fulfilled when this knowledge takes root in other minds, and the cycle of life continues. 12 Academics Administration TOP: Mr. Barancyk takes time off from his duties as Dean of Students to look at pictures. CENTER LEFT : Father Ward’s smile is motivated by the fact that the school day is nearing an end. CENTER RIGHT: Chaperone duties at the dance marathon don’t prevent Sister Christopher from keeping an eye on the Notre Dame game. ABOVE: Mr. Jovanovic checks his calendar for the day’s agenda. Bells, schedules, computer print-outs, detention, late slips, announcements, recruitment, and calendars are just small parts of what an administrator is really all about. Our administrators are the thinkers and the organizers behind a smooth operation. Because of their education and experience, they bring to Andrean unique abilities to set curriculum, construct a personal schedule for each student, and present a well-rounded calendar of events. They are primarily responsible for the general academic and disciplinary standards at Andrean. But there is another very essential quality which our administrators possess which adds to their effectiveness. They do their job with a selfless dedication and love for the student. Their primary goal is executing a smoothly operated school year to give us the best education possible. Their obvious care and concern for bach student as a person serves to motivate us to do our best. Rev. Donald E. Benwitz, C.S.B. Principal Rev. John J. Ward, C.S.B.

Chaplain Administration — 15 Library Books, books, and more books, magazines, card catalogue, stereo, newspapers, and television make Andrean’s library more than just another room in the school. It serves as an information center, a resource center for audio-visual equipment, a theatre, a meeting room, and a place for serious study or quiet reflection. Father Martin and Mrs. Owen are always ready to help students and faculty utilize our library. They make available and explain to us the many, many sources of information and educational techniques which our Andrean library contains. TOP: Addison McGuffin watches carefully as Father Martin demonstrates how to focus the movie camera.

BELOW: Office assistant Jackie Walsko helps Mr. Edwards arrange his daily counseling appointments. BOTTOM: Father Kauffman’s duties include sending students’ references and transcripts to colleges and prospective employers. P.S.A.T. and I.Q. scores, college catalogues, scholarships, financial assistance, schedule changes, and letters of recommendation are vital concerns of Andrean guidance counselors. Our guidance department has the necessary forms, catalogues, and brochures to help us choose colleges and careers that are best suited for us. We also get our personal schedules styled to meet individual needs. Besides invaluable help with the practical business of scheduling courses and choosing the right colleges and careers, Andrean students find in our counseling staff a warmth and friendliness that make us feel at ease and confident discussing goals, interests, or difficulties. Guidance — 17 Theology Bibles, statues, crucifixes, chapel, liturgies, prayers, priests, and sisters are all visible signs around Andrean exemplifying without words that we are a Catholic Christian school. But we do not stop at external signs; we internalize our faith in our study of theology. Our theology classes help us to understand our faith and nourish its growth so that we are spiritually prepared to face and to cope with a complex and sometimes chaotic universe. Our study of our religion causes us to become increasingly aware of the presence of God in our world and in ourselves. Biblical Literature and New Testament in ninth and tenth grades teach us the foundations of our faith. Psychology helps us to understand ourselves and each other as children of God. Faith and Morality prepare us to participate in society as responsible Christian adults. TOP: Sr. Edith listens intently as Elaine Mendez presents a report to a New Testament class. CENTER: One of Sr. Paul’s many activities is grading theology papers. CENTER RIGHT : As the day comes to an end, Sr. Pamela concludes her lecture in Psychology.

New Testament, English I Theology — 19 English Verbs, nouns, complex sentences, clauses, novels, poems, plays, and paragraphs are parts of the wide variety of disciplines on which our Andrean English department focuses to make us think and write clearly, speak fluently and read comprehensively and critically. Often our success in our other subjects depends on our knowledge of and expertise with our native language. In the midst of a difficult drill on the mechanics of grammar or the fascination of an interesting story or character in literature, the Andrean student is allowed to exercise his creativity in both written and oral English. The concern of the English department is not only to develop the basic and necessary skills of the English language but to encourage us to use these skills in the development and expression of our own unique personalities. 20 — English Rev. James Kelly, C.S.B. Department Chairman English Mix, IV, Dramatics, Morality Mrs. Alice Rose Landeck English I, I TOP: Mr. DeFabio experiments with a new way of teaching English grammar.

Heidt enjoys a humorous moment with his freshman English class. CENTER LEFT: Individualized instruction from Mrs. Landeck helps to improve composition skills. CENTER RIGHT: Greek mythology sparks interest and inspires Greg Blachly to respond. Language Conjugations, declensions, idioms, colloquialisms, customs, cultures, translations are the tools with which we learn the languages of other countries and, through the language and its literature, arrive at a better understanding of society. Marshall McLuhan’s “global village” becomes more and more of a reality. As our world shrinks through jet travel and advanced communication techniques, our horizons broaden. Today’s international business world and the foreign language population in America demand the knowledge of a second language. Knowledge of our own language helps us to communicate better in our own English speaking world. Better communication with peoples of other languages and cultures means better understanding of these people. Andrean has a curriculum to meet these needs. TOP: Suzanne Peters giggles at Brad Botsch’s German report. CENTER: Shawn Paulson re-checks the blackboard to make sure she is spelling the French vocabulary words accurately.

Language — 23 24 — Mathematics Mathematics Permutations, combinations, probabilities, equations, theorems and general confusion meet the new math student at Andrean. But with help of an excellent, experienced faculty, we soon learn to conquer this strange new world of numbers and symbols and proceed to new levels of difficulty in Algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus. Our math department sharpens our ability to be precise and accurate, giving us the necessary acuity to work efficiently with the complexities of mathematical problem-solving. Success in the intricacies of mathematical computations furnishes a degree of scholastic achievement which serves as a solid basis for college work and a possible career in the field of mathematics.

Algebra I, lx, II Mrs. Charlotte Matusiak, Geometry Mathematics — 25 Science Cells, microscopes, bell jars, bunsen burners, hypotheses, and H 2 0 are just a few of the concepts introduced to the Andrean science student. Our science department challenges us to experiment and discover. The world of scientific research offers many avenues to answer our many questions. The world of making observations and drawing conclusions is a fascinating one, and the Andrean science department offers courses, facilities, and a knowledgeable faculty to help us as we work with, observe, and record our many new discoveries. Our science department helps us understand the physical world about us, and offers a firm foundation for further study in college for careers in the field of science. Sr. M. Roselle, SS.C.M. Department Chairman Algebra I, Physical Science Mrs. Nancy Dustman Biology, Advanced Biology Mrs. Helen Giorgio Chemistry, Physical Science TOP: With a demonstration at the board, Mrs. Giorgio explains how a chemical reaction works.

BOTTOM LEFT: Mr. latarola realizes that the study of organic chemistry does have its lighter moments. BOTTOM RIGHT: Freshman Mike Burroughs guides open house visitors through the science lab. Science — 27 Social Studies Maps, geography, government, presidents, international intrigue, election procedures, assassinations, wars and conflict are all indications of our diversity as a world community. The study of history helps us to situate the reasons for this diversity and examine paths toward unity and world peace. As we probe the diversity of various cultures and countries, we see how their roots have formed their national ideologies. As we observe and scrutinize the past, we change our perceptions of the present and construct new ideals for the future. At Andrean, we study the political, social and economic struc tures of our own and other world societies, noting carefully their differences and, in the process, we come to understand ourselves, our nation, and our world. TOP: During government class, Theresa Henry volunteers her opinion on a current event. CENTER: Nancy Ribordy, Tina Nevill and Janice Mathews lead a sociology class discussion about crime prevention.

Our business department teaches our students the basics of good business practice and consumer education. In a world where balancing one’s budget has become a real feat, our business courses assist students in making the transfer from high school to the working world. We learn secretarial skills as well as the finer points of accounting, bookkeeping and marketing. Knowledge of business practices and techniques assists one in managing his personal finances and develops marketable career skills for the business world.

Business — 31 Music Four-four time, F sharp, flute, violin, piano, score, lyric, tune-up, measure 8 make up some of the complicated and technical vocabulary of an Andrean music student’s life. The Andrean music department teaches us the complexities and fine points of this musical language. Some of us choose to become acquainted with this language by singing in the choir while others choose to learn the language through playing a musical instrument. Unlike most of our other school subjects, music is meant to be learned and then performed for the enjoyment of others. Our band and choral groups perform in concerts during the year for us. The pep band adds vitality and spirit to our football games and pep assemblies. The complexity and difficulty of studying music are compensated for when we see the delight and appreciation of our audiences. TOP: Practicing together daily is the necessary ingredient for a good sound. ABOVE LEFT: Many of our musicians contribute their talents to our school Masses. ABOVE RIGHT: Good harmony and rhythm depend on the expert conducting of Mr. Watts. RIGHT: With much practice, Al Trevino can make this large, complicated machine produce music. 32 — Music Fine Arts •Chalk, crayons, paints, rulers, India ink, silk screen, clay, saws, plastics, metals, woods are just a few of the tools students at Andrean use in courses that really call forth their creativity. The talent of expressing oneself through art and ceramics gives the student a sense of accomplishment. Andrean’s art program seeks to develop this talent. Technical Drawing, Drafting and courses in shop serve as a very practical base where students can apply what they have learned by using the materials themselves. This kind of knowledge and ability will certainly be an asset in the future. Artistic talents can be channeled into successful careers in commercial art or advertising. Mr. Sammy Listro, Art Dept.

Fine Arts — 33 Miss Cindy Hill, Department Chairman, Foods, Clothing, Home Management Home Economics Pots, pans, teaspoons, ingredients, stitching, mending, washing, sewing, cleaning up — doesn’t sound like school, does it? But these objects and activities are a vital part of our everyday lives, and at Andrean we have the opportunity to work with these to develop homemaking skills. One of the benefits of the women’s liberation movement has been the realization that, whatever career we may pursue, each of us becomes a homemaker. Andrean’s home economics department reflects this awareness with an increase in male enrollment, as boys and girls together learn the science and skills necessary to share the responsibilities of homemaking and family living. TOP RIGHT: Making sure she has threaded the machine properly, Layne McCabe sews on a practice piece of material. TOP LEFT: Rick Jimenez and Kim O’Brien contribute their dishwashing talents to the home economics department Thanksgiving dinner. CENTER: Miss Hill teaches Sue Buckner the art of proper pattern placement. ABOVE: Jeff Urbaniak and Ellen Ferguson demonstrate a vital skill in food preparation, that of opening the can. RIGHT : Miss Hill demonstrates the importance of accurate measurement food preparation. 34 — Home Economics Physical Education Wall ball, dodge ball, calisthenics, floor ho ckey, volleyball, basketball, practice horses, ropes, and mats are just as much a part of an Andrean student’s day as history or English. The fact that physical education is required highlights its importance. We learn that a healthy body is just as essential as a healthy mind for the overall development of the person. Our social and emotional well-being depend on our physical health. Besides learning the basics of good overall personal health, we are also able to incorporate these personal strengths into the learning experience of competitive sportsmanship and the strategies that go into playing a particular game or using a particular piece of equipment. Mr. Daniel Rogovich, Miss Donna Bombassaro, Physical Education, Physical Education Health and Safety TOP: Education films make Mr. Rogovich’s health and safety classes exciting. CENTER: Ellen Miklosy and Kathy Coleman enjoy a break from routine classwork in their physical education course. ABOVE: Interested girls listen attentively to Miss Bombassaro’s instructions.

Physical Education — 35 Record keeping, clerical duties, food preparation, first aid, housekeeping chores, repairs, maintenance . . . working behind the scenes to keep Andrean running smoothly, the secretarial, cafeteria and maintenance personnel are all too often taken for granted. But imagine a day with locked doors, no heat, no food, dirty classrooms, littered hallways, and an absence of all the other services and comforts on which we rely. The importance of those staff members becomes immediately apparent. We take for granted their efficiency and friendliness, too. Andrean wouldn’t be Andrean without their dedicated services, without the thousand tasks they perform cheerfully each day. Mrs. Hazel Moorhouse, Treasur er’s Office TOP: Among the many other jobs on her desk, Mrs. Sawyer takes time from her busy schedule to work on the attendance list.

Cafeteria and Office — 37 . . . A time to break down and a time to build up . . . As children we spent many hours playing with building blocks, creating objects of many forms for various purposes. And if we were unhappy with what we had made, we knocked it down and began again. As young adults, we spend many hours building plans for our lives, setting goals for our future. We arrange and rearrange our lives to fulfill our promises. If we are unhappy with what we make of ourselves we can break away from the old habits and start to build new ways. This process of construction, however, is a never-ending one — for we are constantly changing and developing as time progresses.

A time to keep silence and a time to speak . . . So many times we feel that if we could just put our two cents in, if we could only express ourselves freely without being judged, life would be so much easier. Organizations offer us the opportunity to speak out, to present our original ideas and hear those of our fellow students. We learn, as we participate, how and when to speak, and when to let our silence speak for us. 52 Organizations 53 Democracy at Work The Student Council, the voice of the student body, performed actively this year with proposals, benefits, and activities in order to generate school spirit and unity. Under the direction of Father Martin and Sister Sarah, the Student Council sponsored successful activities which included sock-hops, dances, student exchanges, rec-nights, holiday mailboxes, and pep assemblies. The proceeds of this year’s dance marathon, headed by the Student Council, went to help the Craven family. From other benefits, money was donated to mission organizations around the world, including the Italian Earthquake Fund. The Thanksgiving food drive brought food to needy families in the community. The annual Student Council- sponsored Armageddon contests, the final activity of the school year, demonstrated class spirit as classes competed against each other.

Under the guidance of Mrs. Dakich, the newspaper staff produced eight editions during the school year. The Acropolis was a center of information and ideas. The paper served as a news medium for the student body by keeping them abreast of the latest Andrean happenings. The editorial section in each Acropolis issue was a forum for student opinion, with topics ranging from class leaders to Presidential elections. The quality of articles written by journalism students and staff members made it a showcase of student talent.

Long after facts crammed for an all-important exam have been forgotten and the cheers for that life-or-death game have died away, a yearbook remembers the people, the events that, for a few short years, were all-important in our lives. For Decussata staffers, the experience of preserving those memories is an exhausting and all-consuming pastime. Their holidays are spent not on ski slopes or sunny beaches, but in room 47. When the school day ends, their responsibilities begin, ending only when the final deadline is met. Stacy Troxel and Fred Arrieta, this year’s editors, and dedicated staff members which included Mario Angotti, chief photographer, and Paula Muskin, Jill-of-all- trades, came through with the 1981 Decussata, the book that remembers for us. Father Heidt and Mrs. Thomas were moderators. TOP: Marie Fontanez and Marita Jao make sure they have enough layouts drawn for their section of the yearbook.

Organizations — 57 Artistically Inclined The Drama Club, under the direction of Father Kelly, gives students excellent opportunities to develop their singing, dancing, and dramatic talents and introduces them to the discipline and mechanics of good theater. Accepting the challenge, Andrean’s actors and actresses spellbound audiences with their fall production of Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians and delighted them with Guys and Dolls, the spring musical based on Damon Runyan characters. The Art Club, organized to help students develop creative talents, meets in room 104 and, with Mr. Listro’s guidance, works on individual and group projects of their own choosing. In addition to decorating windows of various businesses and in the community to celebrate Halloween, members also designed and silk-screened t-shirts for Niner fans to demonstrate their support for our championship basketball team.

The world of photography as a career offers many possibilities. Colleges offer a variety of courses and degrees and knowledge of photography is essential in such fields as commercial art and journalism. The students in our photography club, under the direction of Mr. Sullivan, may not be thinking of photography as a career but they are indeed interested in photography as an artistic endeavor and hobby. The club meets every Wednesday to discuss and work with the practicalities of a camera and developing pictures. Kinds of cameras, types of film, degrees of exposure, ways of developing a picture, varieties of lenses and focus are the practical tools that our young photographers need as they develop their “photographic eye” and gradually come to see the world through a lens of a camera.

Organizations — 59 Mental Calisthenics Both the Math and Chess Clubs gave members the chance to increase their intellectual capacities and have fun doing it. The Math Club focused on acquiring knowledge while the Chess Club focused on the use of knowledge. Under the guidance of Fr. Doser, the Math Club challenged its members’ minds with complex math. Members received the satisfaction of conquering the difficult problems as well as extra credit in math classes for their efforts. The highlight of the year was the computer demonstration by a representative from Computer World. Under the direction of Mr. Giorgio, the Chess Club met in room 219 to engage in mind battles. Each week, members competed against each other to improve their playing skills and learn new types of strategy. Further incentive was added with the point system as members vied to raise their scores.

A First for Everything In 1981, two more organizations joined the ranks of Andrean’s already extensive list of clubs. They are the Italian Club and the Soccer Club. The Italian Club, under the direction of Mr. Listro, gives students an opportunity to learn more about Italian culture. Members viewed movies about Italy and played the popular Italian card game of Scuba. They also dined at an Italian restaurant, Giovanni’s. The Soccer Club, guided by Mr. Morgan and Mr. Sanchez, was formed in answer to student requests for a soccer team. They played all of their games on the road this year. They are presently on a trial basis, but their future, which depends upon the success of this year’s team, looks bright. Organizations — 61 Scientifically Inclined The Science Club gave students the opportunity to explore different realms of science in more depth and detail than the normal classroom situation allows. Through participation in the club students had an opportunity to perform experiments first hand that are only mentioned or described in their texts. During their bi-monthly meetings the club members, under the direction of Mrs. Giorgio, gained deeper insights into the workings of science through experimentation and discussion sessions. This year’s activities included separation of the components of milk, a month long project of observing the growth of life in an egg, and demonstration of a laser. The club also took a trip to Brookfield Zoo in the fall. TOP: Addison McGuffin and Rob Kruszynski take a sneak preview of the chick embryo inside the egg with the use of a candler.

Organizations — 63 Speaking to the World For members of the Latin Club, the language of ancient Rome remains a living language. Under the guidance of Sister Paul, students celebrate the Roman mid-winter festival of Saturnalia and commemorate the Ides of March, marking the assassination of Julius Caesar. Members perform Latin skits and don togas to establish an authentic atmosphere, and recreate the traditional social system of the Romans by making “slaves” of new members. Through attendance and participation in club activities, members rise in status to achieve the highest position in Roman society, that of patrician. Under th e direction of Mrs. Pete, the German Club brought a part of the culture of Deutschland to Andrean. The club raised funds by selling German candy, giving many of us our first opportunity to sample German sweets. Members also took an excursion to Klaus German Inn to enjoy the cuisine of Germany.

With a membership of approximately fifty students, this year proved to be a very successful one. The purpose of the club is to give interested students exposure to the history, culture, cuisine, and language of France. Under the direction of Madame Hanas, students participated in a hay ride, a trip to the Chicago Art Institute, and to a French restaurant. Bake sales raised funds for this year’s Le Cercle Francais.

Under the guidance of Senorita Gonder, club members met in room 128 to organize events. The year began with a bake sale as a fund raiser. Members also participated in Spanish Masses and took excursions to two restaurants, Casa Blanca and La Margarita, to sample Spanish cuisine. The highlight of the year was the trip to the Shubert Theater to see Evita, a musical based on the life of an Argentine folk heroine.

Organizations — 67 Play to the Beat The gift of being able to read music and play a musical instrument is not given to everyone. Hard work in the form of daily drills and practice is necessary for a student to develop his talent. Whether he plays the piccolo, flute, trombone, trumpet, or drum, the musician joins his fellow musicians and creates a community of harmony and melody. Under the direction of Mr. Watts, combined talents of Andrean musicians entertained audiences at Christmas, winter, and spring concerts. They also joined our pep assemblies and football and basketball games to stir us to enthusiasm and encourage us to cheer. The band also made its yearly grade school tour and, in doing so, became a very real sign of the quality education which Andrean offers. FRONT ROW: D. Dynek, T. Hammersmith, A. Jordan, S.

Organizations — 71 Mission Possible The goal of the Mission Club, this year as every year, was to give aid to those in need by sending money to missions throughout the world. Under the direction of Mrs. Pete, members held bake sales and carnation sales. They also passed around mission bags in homerooms each week, giving students an opportunity to help. To some, this may seem a thankless job, but when letters are received from missions where money has been sent, telling of how children ate a good meal or did not go to bed hungry for a change, or how families now have roofs over their heads, club members receive the best thanks, the satisfaction of helping others.

Three afternoons a week, these girls practice routines for their halftime performances at all home games. Many Ninerettes attend camps each summer to acquire new ideas and techniques for the coming year. Under the direction of Sister Marguerite and Mrs. Boliker, who acts as a consultant for the squad, the Ninerettes not only perform their own routines with the Marching Band but proudly display their expertise in area parades.

Because of the lack of snow, the club had to cancel two ski trips. The club, however, did manage to take trips to Swiss Valley, Alpine Valley, Wilmont, and The Pines. Because not all members could attend the planned Saturday trips, The Pines offered a special rate to Andrean students on Tuesday nights. Prior to hitting the slopes, members viewed movies on skiing techniques and safety. Members also invited speakers to talk to them about the sport of skiing. Once on the slopes, members put into practice what they had learned from the movies and speakers.

For NHS members, however, these activities represent only a small part of their contributions to the school. They are leaders in many organizations and give their time and talent generously to almost every Andrean activity. Membership in the NHS is based upon four qualities: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Students who are nominated for this honor must have a 3.75 academic average, a record of leadership and service, and the recommendations of their teachers. In January, 1981, seventeen juniors and fifteen seniors were added to the ranks of NHS at an initiation ceremony attended by members, nominees, parents, and faculty.

Eighteen girls and six boys, Andrean’s varsity and reserve squads, work hard at developing their skills and preparing routines to rouse school spirit. Practicing throughout the summer, squad members attend cheerleading camps at their own expense. This past summer, varsity cheerleaders went to an Indiana University camp to learn new routines and sharpen skills, while reserves attended a similar camp at The University of Notre Dame. The varsity squad was led by Melissa Mirich; Sheila Heylin was captain of the reserves. Mrs. Frances Crary is their moderator. Varsity: FRONT ROW: T. Cooke, K. Paulson, B. Burke, M. Metz, M.

Despite four quick losses at the outset of the season, they battled back against many state-ranked teams and ended the season 5-5. The major upset of the year came when the Niners defeated thirteenth-ranked Portage 14-7, thus ruining any playoff hopes the Indians may have had. Ron Wojkovich was chosen the Most Valuable Defensive Back and was also named the Post Tribune’s Defensive Player of the Week during the season.

The team was sparked by Most Valuable Player Ted Karras and Most Improved Player Terry Velligan. Paul Shaughnessy was also honored by receiving the team’s Most Spirited award.

Football — 105 God and Rogy The two years of great basketball that began in 1979 will live in history as the Golden Age of Andrean basketball. Past years brought us outstanding athletes from time to time, but Andrean’s basketball history had heretofore been remarkable only for its consistent good sportsmanship and fan loyalty. It didn’t take long, however, for us for the whole state to notice that Andrean had something very special going in its favor. A compiled record of 46-6 for two seasons marked the best in Andrean’s history. The 1980-81 basketball team was a reflection of hard work, talent, desire, and dedication. KNEELING: K. Zimmer, R. Dudenski, D. Dakich, R. Gough, J. Bullock, G. Bosak, M Tretter, STANDING: J. Nault, R. Hamrlik, D. Frasca, C. Kaminski, J. Dailey, G. Farmer, B. Thompson, R. Wojkovich, D. Hanlon, Mr. Rogovich. Starters were forward Dan Dakich, who averaged 24.2 points per game and couldn’t be stopped by dazzled opponents; forward Jim Bullock, who grabbed rebound after rebound; Ray Gough, at center, who proved an assist wizard at 6 6 " ; and Dan Hanlon, who stood only 5 ' 9 " but made up for his lack of height with astonishing jumping ability. The other guard position changed from game to game in the first month of the season. In search of the best all-around player, Coach Rogovich experimented with Glenn Farmer, Ron Wojkovich, and Chris Kaminski to fill the slot and add needed defense. In December, Chris became permanent fifth man. Greg Bosak was a capable sixth man.

According to area press and some fair-weather fans, Andrean’s season was to end against Roosevelt in the Regional tournament. But the favored Panthers bit the dust as Niners captured a 92-84 overtime victory and won the Regional crown for the second straight year.

The Golden Age of Andrean basketball gained for our school the attention and respect of press and public throughout the state. School spirit reached new heights and brought together students, administrators, faculty, families, alumni, and friends, as we united to cheer for the team that will always be Number One in our hearts and memories. Varsity Basketball — 109 JV Players Gain Experience The 1980-81 Junior Varsity basketball team, under the direction of its coach, Mr. Jeff Edwards, finished the season with an 8-10 record. The main purpose for a JV team is to give playing time to as many players as possible in order to develop them for future varsity assignments. Many new, talented basketball players were discovered, such as guard Lowell Cisowski, who led the JV team in scoring. Dorn Bonta was named Player of the Month in January. His best game was against West Side when he scored thirteen points. Paul Stubblefield had the most rebounds. Dedicated team members practiced daily at six a.m. for four months. Memorable games included the 44-30 victory over Calumet and a thrilling comeback to defeat Lake Central in overtime 42-41.

Mr. Mark Morgan coached the frosh A team and Mr. Mike Lobdell coached the frosh B team, which ended the year 7-5. Coach Morgan led all the other frosh coaches in the area by giving the most playing time to all the players. Every player was given an equal chance to prove himself — experience which will pay off next year. The frosh team was characterized by Coach Morgan as having lots of hustle and desire. The highlight of the season came when they defeated Pearce in overtime on a 45 foot shot by Grant Monahan. Grant earned the honor of being named the A team’s Most Valuable Player. Tom Blake was Most Valuable Defensive Player. Jeff Kontor received the Most Dedicated award and John Augsberger was the Most Improved Player.

Led by senior captains Greg Thomas, John Carter, and Steve Martin, this year’s team was a young one with many sophomores and freshmen. They ended the season by finishing third in sectionals and placing four wrestlers in regionals at Crown Point. John Carter and Ron Grammas were sectional champs, with Steve Martin and Greg Thomas as runners-up. Ron Grammas, at 185 pounds, was eliminated at semi-state level and heavyweight John Carter advanced to state finals in Indianapolis where he lost in the first round. It was fitting that John Carter, the first Andrean wrestler to reach state finals in five years, be named Most Valuable Wrestler, and Ron Grammas Most Improved Wrestler. Varsity: FRONT ROW: E.

Take a grasshopper and hold it tightly in your hand. Open your hand, and the grasshopper will hop away because it wants to be free. Take a child and hold him securely in your arms. Open your arms, and the child will toddle away. He, too, wants to be free. And so it is with us. We’ve traveled a long route — first in diapers, then in blue jeans — from the all-embracing control of parents and teachers to the freedom that we have earned as young adults. We must make our own decisions now. Yet, we look back with love upon the guidance given us, comforted by the knowledge that no matter where our journeys take us, we can return. 124 Juniors Anthony Amore Christina Ayala Nancy Aydelotte Kathryn Ayers Louise Babicka Marite Badar David Barrera April Basista Paul Beiriger Eric Beishline Robert Berger Paul Bicalho Janet Biegel James Bielefeld Carolyn Billicik Donald Bittner Pamela Bonnetts Mary Beth Bonta Bradley Botsch Brian Botsch Christopher Boyles 126 luniors Jean Brown Karen Buncich Christine Buoscio Gabriel Burczyk Megan Burgess Maryann Burrell Gregory Camisa Christopher Carmouche MajellaChube Thomas Chustak Kristin Cleaver Jeffery Cogelja Belinda Colon Gladys Colon John Connell Colleen Conroy Madeleine Costanza Ricardo Cruz James Dailey Richard Daniel Jacqueline Darby LEFT: Junior Class Officers: Suzy Welsh, Secretary; Lawrence Eleftheri, Treasurer; Bob Wilczynski, President; Rose Sgambelluri, Vice President.

Remember the very first day at Andrean, the empty feeling that you were the only person unable to open his locker or that you were always a few seconds behind the bell? How about the heartbreaking sports games that were fought so well but ended in a loss? Perhaps you recall that first report card that you were unwilling to show to your parents. All of this seemed so discouraging and hopeless at the time. Yet now, looking back at these moments, we are able to sit down calmly and smile, perhaps even laugh at our pettiness. These experiences aid us in growth and maturity — for only through the hard times do we open all dimensions of our minds, and learn to appreciate the laughter of good times. 138 Student Life 139 Religious Activities For students at Andrean, both spiritual and academic growth are important. In addition to the theology courses required at Andrean, students benefit from frequent Masses and penitential services for the entire school. Daily Mass is also held in the priests’ chapel and Holy Communion is distributed there every school day during the lunch periods. Each class also has its own retreat day during which students get to know themselves and each other better. RIGHT: Father Kauffman celebrates Mass for the senior retreat.

The victory put everyone in great spirits and ready for “Just Clowning Around,” the theme of this year’s dance. The team, now in suits and ties, and the girls, changed out of jeans and into semi-formal dresses, looked forward to an evening of dining and dancing. The 129 couples filled the “Big Top,” the setting for the dance. Couples danced in the balloon-adorned cafeteria to the music of “Fallen Angel.” Freshman clowns Theresa Bosak, Sally Jensen, Michelle McCrovitz, Kelly Oiler, and Mary Carol Welsh served refreshments to the guests.

Dining and Dancing with Daddy” was the theme for Daddy Date Night, sponsored by the Business Club on February 8, 1981. More than two hundred Andrean fathers joined their daughters in the cafeteria for a roast beef dinner. A festive atmosphere was created by cupids, “Love Is” posters, and personalized hearts hanging on pink trees. Pictures were taken after dinner and then couples promenaded to the gym for some square dancing. After the do-si-dos, awards were given to fathers who attended for four years with their senior daughters, dads with the most girls, birthday fathers and daughters, and the dad who had attended the most Daddy Date Nights. “Bittersweet” picked up the beat, after the award ceremony, with waltzes, polkas, rock numbers, and Greek music.

The cafeteria set the scene for a roast beef dinner, served in an atmosphere of autumn leaves and pumpkins. Business Club members, under the guidance of Sister Daniel, served as waitresses. After dinner the couples adjourned to the gym for some dancing competition. Prizes were given to the best waltzers, disco and rock dancers. Then the experts took over, with “Bittersweet” playing a variety of music for the dancers. Each mother received a corsage as a souvenir of her evening.

Mother-Son Night — 147 Ten Little Indians The fall play, Ten Little Indians, was presented for four nights beginning November 20, 1980. The action of the play takes place on a totally isolated island where eleven guests have been invited by an unknown person. The characters discover that they are being murdered, one by one, according to the dictates of a children’s rhyme, “Ten Little Indians.” Suspicion falls on each guest and each suspects the other. At the end, not even the two surviving characters know who the murderer is! Suspense provided by Agatha Christie and our students kept the audiences captivated and, to Father Kelly’s delight, the play was one of the most successful in Andrean history.

Ten Little Indians — 149 Turnabout Not even the Scrooge could have dampened the festive spirits of the 151 couples attending the Turnabout Dance on January 31, 1981. The magic began when the couples followed an evergreen-lined path into the “Winter Wonderland” to be greeted by the merry-making sounds of “Bittersweet.” Although the air in the cafeteria was actually very warm, every couple received a personalized pair of mittens as a souvenir of the occasion. Artificial snow was abundant in the form of snowflakes which graced the dance floor and the snowmen which sat on the tables. Freshman girls disguised as elves were busy checking coats and serving refreshments. Even Mother Nature contributed to the theme of the dance, “Winter Wonderland,” with a light sprinkling of snow as the couples left the dance.

The competition of the 1981 Armageddon Games began with a pep assembly Friday afternoon. The assembly began with a prayer, the singing of the national anthem, and of course, roll call of the classes. Then, the class of ’81 made it ' s big entrance with Blues Brothers hysteria. Officially commencing the games, senior Dan Hanlon carried in the torch. The assembly began the friendly war between the classes; a traditional sock-hop the next night ended the games.

Armageddon — 153 Guys and Dolls On four successive nights between May 7 and May 10, 1981, audiences were carried from the Andrean gymnasium to New York’s Times Square in the 1950’s to meet fascinating characters — gangsters, chorus girls, and missionaries — who soon won their hearts. This feat was accomplished by a group of some fifty students who contributed to the production of the musical comedy, Guys and Dolls, under the direction of Father Kelly. Older members of the audience reminisced over old favorite songs and lines while the younger generation picked up new lingo.

Prom — 157 ... a time to keep and a time to throw away . . . During our long years of school, we have amassed a vast collection of treasures . . . snapshots, laboriously filled notebooks, lucky gym shoes, prom corsages, athletic letters, detention notices, favorite books, worn blazers. We mean to keep them, always. But somehow we know that they’ll be lost in the shuffle of time, intentionally or inadvertently thrown away. And then we will realize that our genuine treasures are the knowledge we’ve gained, the friends we’ve made, the maturity we’ve acquired. And those are ours, forever. 158 Seniors 159 A high school senior is a paradox. The word senior itself contains the contrasts and conflicts that make up the personal qualities inherent in every youth on the brink of adulthood. S represents the Success we have had in completing twelve years of schooling and the Struggle we will encounter in colleges, careers, and vocations. E stands for the Enthusiasm of our past years at Andrean including sports, dances, and high marks, as well as the Ennui we have experienced with schoolwork, lectures, and waiting in cafeteria and ticket lines. N depicts the evolution from our little Narcissistic world to the realization of the physical, spiritual, and mental need for Nourishment of the people of the world. stands for the Intelligence we have gained these past four years and the ignorance we still must overcome. O represents the Originality we strive for in a world where the Ordinary is dominant. The final letter R illustrates the Relief we feel once we have the diploma in our hands and the Restlessness we feel in our desire to extend our life, love, and learning.

Minutes after Reagan assumed Presidency, the hostages departed for Algiers aboard two jet airliners. During their recuperation period at a hospital in Wiesbaden, West Germany, former President Carter visited them as an official envoy of the new administration. J ubilation greeted the lostage release and added Father Norman Murphy, school chaplain, celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination on Oct. 26. 1980.

He publicly commemorated this personal milestone at St. Basil’s Church in Toronto, Canada, with five fellow golden jubilarians. His Eminence George Cardinal Flahiff was also among honored celebrants. Distributing communion and hearing confessions as Andrean’s chaplain, Father Murphy has served as a religious guide to faculty and students for many years.

Signs Display AHS Appeal To publicize scholastic and extracurricular opportunities at Andrean, billboards were installed in front of the school and on 1-65 North near 61st Avenue. While the signs advertised noteworthy events such as Andrean Parents Club activities, and Drama Club productions and important information concerning exams and registration dates, they also contained messages, such as “Andrean High School, Quality Catholic Education” and “Andrean, Home of the 59er’s,” throughout the year. This public relations effort, initiated in November, was apparently successful; an increased number of prospective students took the entrance exam and consequently enrolled. Credit for the employment of these billboards is attributed to Mr. John Cidulka of State Outdoor Advertising. increased vigor and enthusiasm to the inaugural festivities. A parade, fireworks, and gala parties delighted inaugural guests. As Americans evinced their proud faith in the 52 captives by tying yellow ribbons around trees, they also celebrated this liberation.
