The four minute rush between classes does not usually allow us much time for nostalgic meditation. Yet, sometimes, when we are alone here in the early morning or late afternoon, we feel an awareness of Andrean’s history and a kinship with those students of former years who have passed through its halls. In the now integrated south corridor, we try to picture a time, twenty-five years ago, when it was off limits for male students and only girls’ classes met here. A peek in the biology room makes us wonder how many ill-fated frogs have been dissected here. The empty stairs — are these the same flights that have withstood hourly stampedes for twenty five years?

This school, hoped for by the people of Gary for many years, and sacrificed for during the fund raising campaign begun in 1956, was established by the Most Reverend Andrew G. Grutka, bishop of Gary, as a co-institutional school. A co-institutional school is one in which boys and girls are taught in separate classes by a dual faculty under a single administration. As such a school, Andrean has one principal, Father John Burke, C.S.B., and two assistant principals, Father Robert O’Halloran, C.S.B., for the boys and Sister Rose Mary, SS.C.M., for the girls. The Basilian Fathers of Toronto, Canada, and lay men teach the boys; the Sisters of Saints Cyril and Methodius, from Danville, Penn- sylvania, and lay women teach the girls. Most of the classrooms are located in two areas, the boys’ wing and the girls’ wing, but all students use the same library and cafeteria facilities. Andrean’s curricular offerings are divided into two major areas, the col- lege preparatory program and the non-college, with majors in business and homemaking. Besides the atmosphere of a Catholic school, Andrean offers its students opportunities for spiritual growth in the annual three-day retreat, the First Friday Mass, daily Mass, availability of confessors, and accessibility of two chapels. Despite the fact that the boys and girls are taught in separate classes, they take part in many social and ex- tracurricular activities through the various clubs and activities which have grown up during these four years. Every aspect of Andrean’s activities — educational, spiritual, social, physical — flows from the basic philosophy of the school, the forma- tion of ‘the true Christian ... the supernatural man who thinks, judges and acts consistently in accordance with right reason illumined by the supernatural light of the example and teaching of Christ; in other words . . . the true and finished man of character.’ (Pius XI)” Decussata, 1963. . . . and Now Since its opening, Andrean has had twenty-two graduating classes pass through its halls. Established by Bishop Andrew G. Grutka in 1959, Andrean to- day is a co-educational Catholic high school. Andrean has gradually changed from co-institutional to co-educational. A co- ed institution is one in which classes have both male and female students in integrated classes taught by a single faculty. Andrean has one principal, Father Whitley, and two assistant prin- cipals, Father Kauffman and Sister Christopher, just as it did at its opening. The Basilian Fathers of Toronto, Canada, and the Sisters of Saints Cyril and Methodius, of Danville, Penn- sylvania, now work as a unit, along with lay teachers, to instruct the entire An- drean student body. Although most of its classes are still college preparatory, Andrean has ex- panded its curriculum to meet the needs of students with a broader range of in- terests and needs. For example Andrean has a strong foreign language depart- ment, offering classes in French, Ger- man, Latin and Spanish. No other area high school has so many of its students enrolled in foreign language classes. Spiritual learning has always been em- phasized. Theology classes, daily Mass in the chapel, penance services, and yearly retreats are some of the many oppor- tunities still offered at Andrean. Andrean’s founder Bishop Grutka sums up the spirit of Andrean when he says, “You know what the joy of win- ning is like in competition with other schools. Well, 1 would like to see the joy extended some, too, to winning the greatest prize of all, a place in heaven. Also I would like to see the Andrean students inspiring other students to recognize God in each other and, as a result, bring triumphs that will last forever.” Introduction — 5 6 — Introduction Upstairs in what was once the exclusive province of males, we pass the chemistry room and marvel that, despite a quarter of a century of beginners’ mistakes and labs gone wrong, no one has ever blown it up. How many of today’s important scientists have mixed their first chemicals or performed their first ex- periments here? Downstairs again, in the holy stillness of the chapel, we say a prayer for those who have prayed here before us, and think about the many, many prayers Andrean’s athletic teams have offered here, and the daily Masses of Basilian Fathers. The walls of the empty cafeteria still echo with applause for twenty five years of inept tray droppers, and we wonder why, after many years of integration, boys and girls still gravitate to opposite sides of the room. And how many literary masterpieces, we wonder, were born here in our library, before first hour? Introduction — 7 8 — Introduction A Talk With Bishop Grutka To prepare its twenty-fifth anniver- iry issue, the Andrean Decussata :nt seniors Tom Jagiella, Chai ulsakdinun, and photographer ichard Verduzco to interview His Ex- dlency Bishop Andrew G. Grutka. nder the Bishop’s able direction, the ocese united in 1959 in a great spirit sacrifice to establish the first atholic high school in the Gary area, nee that time, the Bishop, who will tire this year, has spiritually over- men and guided us, while Andrean is flourished as a symbol of ex- :llence in education. : Why was Andrean built? : Originally Bible studies were per- mitted in Gary public high schools so there was no need for any Catholic school in the Merrillville area. The theological instruction was sufficient. Academically, Gary high schools were sound; Froebel was nationally respected. However, need for a Catholic high school arose when the Supreme Court ruled that Bible studies had no place in public schools. What were your hopes for Andrean? To be an outstanding Catholic school, promoting all principles of Christian living. What are your expectations now? A: Although I an never satisfied, An- drean has lived up to my expecta- tions. Yet, there could be more vocations; quite a few young peo- ple are not listening to the call. Q: What do you foresee for Andrean after pour retirement? A: For it to continue to excel and to produce the type of person that at- tracts attention to things divine. Q: What is pour opinion on public aid to Catholic education? A: It would be a good thing, because it helps, I think, to gain more students, but not if this brought government intervention into the curriculum. Then, we would prob- ably be better off without it. After all, in the past, we built, staffed, and maintained our high schools without government support. If we continue as we presently are, we will still produce the kind of people that are not only good citizens of their country, but good citizens of heaven. Q: Is the Garp Diocese progressive? A: We simply respect the freedom of will which God has given every human being and what we try to do is to have our people conform their wills to Divine Will, which is the essence of religion. Q: Do you see the role of computers in education as important? A: I cannot agree to all that. There is nothing in a computer that was not put there. They can serve a pur- pose, but how do you explain the unemployment in this area? Is this an attempt to do away with menial labor? Who will do the work that will always be necessary as long as human nature remains the same? How can a computer change a flat tire? Computers are good for stor- ing data and bringing it to our atten- tion quickly, but what if everyone forgot how to write and type? Q: What is the primarp purpose for Andrean? A: To show Catholic values to the out- side world. Students have to act well to all people, to show a good example. The purpose is not what you know but what you show. This should be love for God, and love for each other. God put all of us here and God never makes mistakes, so we cannot condemn anyone. We must make the necessary ad- justments to get along with others. He wants us to show our love for God and for one another. After that, everything else will fall into place. Andrean is here to help in this endeavor. In a lighter mood, the Bishop shares in an in- Tom Jagiella interviews the Bishop for the formal conversation with his Andrean Andrean Decussata. interviewers. Introduction — 9 Down in the gym our footsteps echo on the empty floor, evoking thoughts of aspiring young musicians, actors, and athletes who took their first steps toward careers here. Other scenes fill the mind’s eye, and we think of dances and sock-hops, Masses, and pep assemblies. Almost every important activity at Andrean has found its way into this gym, and we remember our own first nervous orientation assembly as freshmen. We look forward to that day of our last assembly here, our own commencement, and all the excitement remain- ing between these two events. By the time we are seniors, the halls seem smaller and a bit warmer, more like home. We know where the light switches are, and the corners aren’t quite so dark. The faces we see to- day are those of people we call our friends. The ghosts are here, but they, too, are the faces of friends ... the ghosts of Andrean past. 10 — Introduction iiM 1 Introduction — 11 - ' umageddon r m 1970 -72 c 3 ■ • ' 77 197 ' -72 {( 7. •78 197? -‘72 |C 3 -79 197 ; -74 7 - ' M a i I97‘ -74 0 -81 197 -75 li l -‘81 Student Life Student Life — 13 Spirit Triumphs We got spirit, yes we do; We got spirit, how ’ bout you? For a week before Homecoming, electricity crackled in the air. Ac- tivities for spirit week included such classics as Dress-Up Day and Red and Gold Day. Three new additions were Hawaiian Day, Backwards Day, and Forties Day, which helped promote the dance theme of “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” Events at the end of the week raised enthusiasm to a feverish pitch. A pep rally held on Friday roused the spirit of students as well as the team. In the parade which preceded the game, the froshmore float received the coveted title of first place. For their mockup of an “Urban Assault Vehicle,” the senior class earned the award for Most Unusual Motorized Vehicle. During the game, Homecoming Queen finalists Annie Chester, Maria Mallonee, Sloan Metz, Connie Oates, and Mary Carol Welsh waited in an- ticipation for the half-time announce- ment of 1983 Homecoming Queen. The tense waiting ended when this prestigious title was bestowed upon Sloan Metz. Amy Bernat kicks up a storm at half-time. Sister Jane braves the cold to wait patiently for a Homecoming touchdown.

Changing the An- drean curriculum to con- form with the new state legislation concerning education was an early but easy job for Father Whitley. “The only big changes,” he said, “were to add com- puter courses for the graduating class of ’85 and a few minutes to each class in the daily schedule. In- diana, in other areas, is coming up to the standards that Andrean has held for years.” Academics — 35 LIBRARY Peace and Quiet Library Collection Represents Twenty Five Years of Growth The Andrean library represents twenty five years of collecting books and materials to provide infor- mation for students and teachers alike.

Besides routine lectures, readings, and tests, students have fun. In World History, sophomores reenact the trial of Napoleon. In U.S. History, juniors take part in the North and South struggle. In senior year, students take part in a tradition started this year by Mr. Horvath, who gave seniors a taste of politics in government class mock campaigns, which consisted of five parts: a primary, two campaigns, conventions, and an election. Both campaigns for President included passing out goodies, painting signs, shaking hands, and discuss- ing contemporary pro- blems. The second floor of Andrean was filled with posters supporting the many candidates. On the day of the party conven- tions, the boys’ gym was transformed into a conven- tion hall. After the wheeling and dealing was finished, delegates voted for their candidates for President and Vice President. Indiana Senator John Bushemi congratulated Democratic party can- didates, Tony Forszt and Bob Bonta, and the Republican party can- didates, Bob Gregor and John Wing.

Yet, in everyday life, anything associated with the number thirteen is thought of as unlucky, especially when the thir- teenth day of a month falls on a Friday. But one “unlucky” Friday was very special. The date was April 13, 1984. The occasion was the marriage of Mr. Wiltshire and Miss Schweitzer. To supersti- tious people, being married on such a date is an invita- tion for a disastrous out- come. But defying supersti- tion, the two mathematics teachers chose that date so they could honeymoon dur- ing spring vacation and return to school as Mr. and Mrs. Wiltshire.

CHOIR - Academics — 59 The First Step Budding Artists Learn Techniques, Strive for Mastery of Art and Craft Throughout history, man has striven to express himself through the arts. From the earliest cave writings to Renaissance paintings to modern ar- chitecture, his progress is evident. Still, he continues to improve. With new ideas and techniques constantly emerging, the artistic world is forever changing. Helping to bring about these changes and improvements are the artists of tomorrow — those who are using and improving their talents to become skillful masters $n the art world. Many bud- ding artists at Andrean are doing exactly that. Labor- ing painstakingly in either an industrial art course or a fine arts course, the young artist is aided in making a distant dream become a reality — that he, too, could become one of the greats in the eternal art world.

As Sister Jane remarked, “If any of the girls doesn’t know the routine, then she just doesn’t perform.” Captain Lisa DeBois and co-captains Amy Tomecko and Jodi Attar have shown their creativity in many routines. The pom pons have performed to songs ranging from Broadway hits like “Marne” to contemporary rock hits like “Beat It.” With the help of Becky Bernat, squad treasurer, and Patricia Lucas, secretary, poms have done an excellent job at boosting school spirit at basketball and football games and assemblies.

Sports — 89 At Last Flash Flood Creates Long-Awaited Swim Team The Andrean varsity swim team had its spontaneous genesis on Tues- day, May 22. Their first meet was held on Route 330, east of Schererville, under a railroad overpass. Swim team coach, Mrs. Myrtle Jones, was driving thirty seven An- drean students home on the Lake County Bus Service Schererville route when a flash flood struck. The high- water warning sign was obscured, so Coach Jones, oblivious to any threat, drove in to seven feet of mucky water. As the front of the bus began to float upwards, quick-thinking swim team members opened the bus win- dows and doors to let the water in. In- geniously, students piled their schoolbooks on stacks of bus seats to save them from the flood. Nonswim- mers desperately employed their seats as flotation devices. Schererville police served as cheerleaders for the newly-formed swim team, remaining on dry ground and shouting en- couragement to team members, who swam the ten feet to higher ground. Residents near the swim site pro- vided coffee, pop, blankets, towels, and telephones to the winners. Some varsity swim team members were picked up by parents; others were escorted home in Schererville police cars and ambulances. Mike Falcone, freshman, heroically carried his books to safety. Other swimmers later salvaged their waterlogged books and notebooks, just in time for final exams. No casualties were reported. Lack of a school pool proved no deterrent to these stalwart amphibians who, according to team captain Chris Hafner, have no immediate plans for further aquatic feats. They are, however, ready to take the plunge at a moment’s notice. SWIMMING Post Tribune P 90 — Sports Par for the Course Golfers Finish With 11-7 Season; Szot Optimistic Despite Loss of Stars A final record of four wins and eight losses does not reflect the hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm of the girls’ varsity golf team. With Most Valuable Player Theresa Bosak and Most Improved Player Nancy Buckley leading the way, the team entered the regional competition and went downstate for the second year in a row. Mrs. Landeck, who coached the team, said that it was “a pleasant season because of the cooperation, good attitude, and overall spirit of the girls.” The 1983-84 boys’ golf team ended its season with an 11-7 record and a victory over Hobart. Most Improved Player was Demetrios Kaiafas, and Most Valuable Player was Tory Prasco, who also entered the regional competition. Because five of the senior players on the team will not be returning, Coach Szot will have to de- pend on the freshmen, sophomores, and juniors next year. Nonetheless, he remains optimistic about next year’s team. GOLF Top: Boys’ Varsity Golf: J. Medved, D. Doherty, J. Kazwell, D. Kaiafas, J. Massa, C. Kulsakdinun, T. Puntillo, T. LoVerde. Seated: T.

Happiness for Special Children Is Goal; Y.A.R.C. Delivers Tender, Loving Care The Youth Association for Retarded Children, popularly known as Y.A.R.C., is one of An- drean’s oldest clubs. Under the guidance of Sr. Paul, members learn how to work with special children with loving care. They sponsor parties at Halloween, Christmas, and Easter for children in our area. The club meets in room 119 to organize activities for par- ties which include making invitations, preparing refreshments, and planning games. Members volunteer their time and services and are rewarded by the children’s laughter and love and the joy that comes from giving. 116 — Organizations CLOWNS r all clowns, learning to apply make-up is as important as practic- j and performing routines, and even for experienced clown Jeff imradt it is still an exacting and tedious process. Make ’em Laugh Andrean Clown Troupe Spreads Happiness in Northwest Indiana Clowns — they have de- lighted and amused us all for as long as we can remember. The Andrean Clown Troupe carries on this tradition of entertain- ment as it has since its in- ception. Performing for young and old alike, the clowns of Andrean help spread joy and happiness throughout the community. New clowns in the troupe spend their first few months training, learning how to ap- ply make-up, practicing skits, and memorizing the rules of clowning. During this time, they also develop characters of their own; Guest speaker, TC the Clown, out of make-up, answers Sr. Marlene’s question. each member makes up an original face, an original name for his character, and a silly personality to round out the act. When Sr. Marlene and the troupe of- ficials feel rookies are ready, they hold a gradua- tion ceremony in which new clowns perform for the others, then receive licenses permitting them to perform as official clowns. Clowns perform for many different audiences, including frequent trips to convalescent homes, or- phanages and children’s homes. Jeff Kamradt, Cythia Becht, and Lori Knudson, alias Popcorn, Rainbow, and Yo-Yo, practice their skit. Organizations — 117 ACROPOLIS Acropolis co-editor Karen Owen writes an article for the next issue of the school paper. Keeping in Touch Student Journalists Do Their Part To Keep Niners Informed and Aware From sports and religion to politics and polls on stu- dent opinion, the Acropolis, Andrean’s school newspaper, expresses an opinion uniquely Andrean! With the help of editors-in- chief Karen Owen and Chuck Reibly, along with Mr. DeFabio, moderator, the Acropolis turns out eight issues of interesting, quality journalism. Throughout the year students can look forward to crisp, down-to-earth writing about things impor- tant to them. Bob Kopko, circulation manager for the Acropolis, counts profits from the Valentine ad sale. Acropolis editors consolidate their efforts to plan a layout. 118 — Organizations DECUSSATA scussata editors Chu Kulsakdinun and Greg Volan select slides to int for color pages of the yearbook. Capturing Memories Decussata business manager Anita Simic finds the file she needs. Academics editor Radmar Jao shows Teresa Gianoli how to do a layout. Decussata Staff Records Andrean History in the Making Most students at An- drean seldom think about their yearbook. Their con- cern lies only with ordering their book in September and picking it up a year later. During this interval, they assume that the book is being taken care of. Yearbooks, however, do not appear overnight, and few people realize the work and planning necessary to produce a high-quality year- book. Staffers first must design and plan each page, then pictures have to be taken and fitted, and copy, headlines, and captions must be written. Ad sales and the patron drive are also vital to lessen the high cost of the book. Decussata staffers sacrifice hours of their own time after school and work during vacations to meet deadlines. Without these volunteers, we would have no yearbook — no book for all our friends to sign, no book in which to find our pictures, and nothing to show our children many years from now. Organizations — 119 STUDENT COUNCIL Above, Jay Boby, Gail Francis, and Radmar Jao prepare for the weekly student council meeting with moderators Sister Sara and Father Martin. Right, Student council officers: President Jay Boby, Treasurer Matt Reardon, Vice- president Radmar Jao, and Secretary Gail Francis. Democracy at Work Student Council Follows Classical Form To Provide Every Student With a Voice More than 2500 years ago, Athe- nians introduced a new form of government in which all the citizens met periodically to discuss and vote upon the important issues of the day. They called it democracy. The Romans developed a similar political system, but Rome was too large for the direct participation of citizens, as in Athens, so the citizens elected representatives to deal with political matters for them. Our student council patterns itself after the ancient Greeks. Although senators are elected every year, any student may attend the meetings and participate in the actions of the council. No other student council in this area has open meetings. In most schools, only elected representatives go to meetings, and their student bodies hear only published results. Andrean, however, realizes that the student body is small enough to have open meetings. We are allowed to par- ticipate directly in our government — just as the Greeks did more than 2500 years ago. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Elisa Bruscemi proposes a “pin a heart on your favorite guy” contest, while the assembly listens. 120 — Organizations PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB otography Club officers: Mr. Uhlig, moderator; Tara Thupvong, :e President; Frank Manista, Secretary; Pam Arvay, President. Picture Perfect Photo Club Makes Masterpieces By Combining Art and Science “Before one can apply photography as an art, he must first master photography as a science.” As Mr. Uhlig points out, photography consists of more than just snapping pic- tures. Members of the Photography Club learn the science of taking better pic- tures and developing and printing pictures in the dark room. After mastering the how to’s, the real fun begins. On an occasional ex- cursion day, members gather to find original angles to photograph. By mastering the science and perfecting the art, the Photography Club manages to turn out talented photographers.

September 2, 1983, was a near-tragic day for sophomore Matt Suris and his family. Driving home from the Andrean-Hammond Clark football game with his father, his car was hit by a drunk driver. Taken to Broadway Methodist Hospital, he underwent six hours of surgery. Two blood clots and a crushed brainstem hampered surgery and the surgeon told his parents that he had a ten percent chance of surviving the morning. But Matt beat the odds and was still alive the next morning. Only one thing kept his family from rejoicing: Matt was in a coma. For eight weeks, Matt lay in a coma while his family kept a prayerful vigil. At Andrean, a special Mass and hourly prayers were offered for his recovery. Matt’s slow but sure return to consciousness signalled a time for prayers of thanksgiving. But Matt’s greatest ordeal still lay ahead. From Merrillville, Matt was transferred to the Chicago Rehabilitation In- stitute, where he slowly worked his way back into life. He went to physical therapy three times a week, and to school one hour a day. In therapy he did exercises, swam, and gradually developed his muscles. After ten weeks of grueling exercises and therapy lessons, Matt came home. On January 15, 1984, Matt was released from the hospital. One week later, on January 24, 1984, Matt returned to Andrean to visit his friends and to make ar- rangements for tutors to help him prepare for a full-time return in the autumn of 1984. Welcome back, Matt!

Karen has always been an acrobat; even at the age of three she was perfor- ming on the suspended rings. At the age of nine Karen first at- tended circus camp at Camp Tecumseh. There she learned various tricks of trade, such as tightrope walking and riding the unicycle. Though she enjoys both of these, her favorite by far is the flying trapeze. From the trapeze she does flips, somer- saults, and all types of difficult moves. Although Karen does not attend circus camp any more, she still practices on her trapeze at home. Karen Hibbs displays her acrobatic skills as she prepares to do a flip in midair.

Jeanne Walsko practices for state gymnastics finals. Sophomore Jeanne Walsko has been a gymnast since third grade. Working hard through two classes, she is in the intermediate stage and has made it to the State Championship finals. She is currently working under three instructors, Lynn Knight, Janet Grant, and Sue Hewitt. Jeanne studies ballet and jazz, practicing for two and a half hours, four times a week. She has com- peted for two years in many cities, including LaPorte, Lafayette, and South Bend. Learning her sport is not enough for Jeanne. She also teaches tumbling to children from ages four and up on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The choice to teach seemed to make itself, as she loves both children and tumbling. She plans to begin teaching aerobics soon. Even though she has a weak point, the beam, her two strong points, her skill on uneven parallel bars and floor exercises make up for it.

In August, 1980, the new freshman class assembled for orientation and a picnic afterwards. Some of us started our high school careers by making new friends and learning the rules of the school. We were growing up, uncertain and bewildered by our new environment at Andrean . . . and time went on. By August, 1981, we were no longer the little freshmen who brought into this school the blue corduroy uniforms. The Rubik’s cube was this year’s fad. We were warned that this year would be the hardest year in high school but we persevered . . . and time went on. When August, 1982 came around, we were upperclassmen. We sat on the lower part of the bleachers. We sold the most raffle tickets and built the prize-winning float. It ws time to take charge . . . and time went on. From August 22, 1983 to June 3, 1984, we were the distinguished senior class. Death-mobiles, Trivial Pursuit games, and parties filled our Saturday nights. Graduation rehear- sal, Senior Dinner, Baccalaureate Mass, and Commencement Exercises occupied our last week at Andrean. After graduation, we were on our own, making our marks as individuals. No matter what our futures hold for us, we will remember always the times we had at Andrean High . . . and times goes on.

The Top Two The top two students of the class of 1984 are Chai Kulsakdinun and Rich Arrieta. Chai, the valedic- torian, maintained a grade point average of 5.39 out of 5.00, while Rich finished with a g.p.a. of 5.30. Through outstanding involvement in extracurricular activities, Chai and Rich have earned the reputa- tion of being Andrean’s finest students. Both Chai and Rich have long records of achievement including awards for math and science, membership in the National Honor Society, involvement in sports, and many scholarships. Chai has held the positions of class president in his sophomore year, class treasurer in his junior year, and president of National Honor Society in his senior year. He has also been a member of the Debate Club and the Quiz Bowl team as well as the golf team and tennis team. Rich has been first trumpet player and senior band captain. In his junior year, Rich toured Europe with the United States Collegiate Wind Band. He has also been an important member of the soccer team. Both plan to continue their academic excellence in college. Chai will attend Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, where he will enter a pre-medical program. Rich will attend the California In- stitute of Technology in Pasadena to major in chemical engineering. Seniors — 155 Class of ’84 Baccalaureate On May 31 the senior class, dressed in caps and gowns, gathered at Holy Angels Cathedral to celebrate the Mass for the last time. Bishop Grutka acted as celebrant and urged the class to live dynamically as Christians. Several members of the senior class took part in the Mass by reading and presenting symbolic gifts in the offer- tory procession. Gifts like the school flag, yearbook, Student Council gavel, and newspaper symbolized the works performed by seniors during their four years at Andrean. After receiving Communion and the closing blessing, the class left the Cathedral united as members of a spiritual community.

Sergio speaks for everyone when he says, “I would like to thank all of the people that tried to make this experience in a foreign country easier for us. It has been a fascinating experience. Thank you.” 168 — Seniors Eileen Mathis John Massa Laureen Massengill Michelle McCrovitz WBmmmEli wMJ 1 Cathleen McCarthy David McAfee Ellen Miklosy Elaine Semon Miles Mike Miller Barbara Maxin Dan McCullough Theresa Mikalowsky Christine Misiak Seniors — 169 Dee Ann Molden Julie Monek Michele Moore Mike Morley John Mueller Lynne Mueller Suzanne Nicksic Constance Oates Dave O’Connell Kelly Oiler Don Onofrey Rosie Ornelas Karen Owen Dave Owens Maurice Padilla Kevin Pawlak 170 — Seniors Suzy Peters Duane Phifer Cindi Pishkur Jen Pishkur Tonda Poindexter Tory Prasco Tony Puntillo Brian Quinn Kelly Quinn Randy Ramusack Georgan Rahfeldt Chuck Reibly At Homecoming pep assembly, seniors dressed in army fatigues hope to terrorize the opposition with Andrean’s fighting spirit.

JWP Katrina Wilczynski Jennifer Wilson John Wing Lisa Yee Jim Zaloudek Barbara Zerebecki Wayne Ziga Christina Zimmerman Dale Zink Lori Zugbaum The death of Rev. Donald Benwitz, C.S.B., on November 18, 1 983, brought to an end a lifetime of devotion and service, distinguished by many accomplishments not often found in such a short life. It would be impossible to enumerate all the achievements of a life so rich, full and active, up until the very end. Here at Andrean, where he served as principal for five years, and in many places beyond, lies evidence of Fr. Benwitz’ s devoted labor to the people around him. Father Benwitz will always be remembered as a warm, sen- sitive, humble man with great love for God and his communi- ty. His students were also of great concern to him, especially those who were experiencing problems or difficulties. Everyone had great respect for him because of his sensitivity, supportiveness, and leadership. May our Divine Lord be generous and merciful to him and grant him eternal rest and peace.

Then move your other rook 3 spaces left. Problem 3: First, capture the bishop with your pawn. This puts the king in check. The king must move 1 space to the left. Then move your knight to square 7. Problem 4: Move your knight to space 11. The oppo- nent’s king can only move diagonally forward. Then move the bishop diagonally forward 5 squares to where the knight was.

satisfied feeling to the hearts of Andrean students. We eagerly make plans for summer jobs and parties. We anticipate a fun-filled three months of vacation away from the duties of school. Yet along with these urges to move forward we find ourselves, again as in reading, leafing back to the best parts and mentally reliving them. When we speak of endings we also unconsciously speak of new beginnings. We have to set new goals and learn new skills.
