The Best of Times . . .
The times of our lives. The best of
times, the worst of times. The joys we
shared, the defeats we met. The friends
we made, the friends we lost. This was
all a part of high school.
Whether Freshman or Sophomore,
Junior or Senior, we all had our good
and bad times alike. But most of this we
would not change, and even if we could,
we would still experience those times at
Arsenal Technical High School. For this
is a special school. Our experiences
here are different and special. We are
special, to each other, to ourselves.
Our buildings are special. They have
withstood years of wear. They have
withstood years of students running
down their halls, talking with friends in
the halls outside of class, romances
blooming in a classroom with that
special one across the room.
Our campus is special. Grass covered
with leaves in the fall and snow in the
winter. Trees covered with ice in the
winter and buds in the spring. Grounds
covered with students all year long,
sometimes even after school is out for
Our students are special. Here every
race, creed, and color has the chance to
learn with one another, to talk with one
another, to exist with one another, all
without the fear of others putting us
Our experiences and opportunities
are special. We have at our fingertips
the resources with which to change the
We have the chance to make this
either the best or worst times of our
lives. Using everything that we have,
every way that we know possible, we
can make our lives at high school the
very best times of our lives.

Fabulous Floats Finally Fantastic
The night of October 1, 1982 is a
night we'll all remember. We were
treated to a number of fine memories.
One of the closest Homecoming games
played in years, the parading of some of
the best floats ever seen, great
fireworks, and the crowning of the 1982
Homecoming King and Queen.
The Game was a see-saw battle all
the way. The score was 12 all, and it
was time for overtime. We had first
possession of the ball, and the Titans
failed to score. Marshall got the ball and
the Mighty Titans held the Patriots to
fourth down and one yard to go. The
Patriots' coach decided to kick a field
goal. The kick was made and it was
good. Although we lost, it was a very
exciting game and we commend our
The senior float competition was won
by 701. They had a dragon roasting a
Patriot. One of the judges commented
that these were some of the best floats'
she had seen in years.
The fireworks this year were better
than good, they were excellent. The
booms, bright colors, and best of all the
lighting of T-l-T-A-N-S was fabulous.
The finality of fireworks was highlighted
by the releasing of many fireworks
Now we come to the big moment of
Homecoming, the crowning of the 1982
King and Queen. All the candidates

We have come to the end of the
beginning-graduation. We are
leaving behind us priceless memories,
good friends, and our childhood. lt is
time for us to take that first giant step
into the adult world.
Tech will always occupy a special
spot in our hearts. Here, we have
taken the first faltering steps on the
long road of life. Here, we have made
lasting friendships and had happy
times. We are sad to leave, but the i
future calls us.
Good bye Tech, we will miss you.

Student Work Toward Career Goals
Career classes offer students a
wide choice of classes. Students can
choose a mechanics class. For those
who would like to fly, Aviation is a
good class. Plumbing may be the
class for you if your goal is to be a
plumber. For you car nuts there is
For a future business person, a
class like Introduction to Data
Processing is a start on the way to a
computer career. After this, one
would go on to take RPG, Cobol,
and, then Fortran.
Whatever type of class a student
chooses to take, if it is offered
through our Career Center, it will
provide excellent instruction.

brilliant, dazzling life. For two and a half

"The Best of Times" well-
describes a student's Senior year.
The Senior year is filled with fun,
glamour, friends, and also some
Part of the fun is due to just being
a Senior. After these years of school,
the long hours are almost over.
The senior year is also full of
events especially for the Senior.
These include Tug-a-War, Sadie
Hawkins' Day, and Homecoming. In
these events, the Seniors show how
proud they are to be a Senior.
Friends are big part of the Senior's
last year. Without them, who would
the Senior share all their hopes, joys,
and sorrows with?
Many Seniors look forward to one
event their Senior yearg their Senior
Prom! The lights, the music, and the
people, add up to make it one of the
most special and memorable nights
All too soon, however, it seems
that this must end. This is the time
when the tears fall. Seniors know the
end is near. The final big event is
Graduation. Before the event, there
is just enough time to wish good luck
to a few, or many friends. Then it is
time. The procession starts, and
before long, it is over. Then the tears
really fall, in happiness, for all the
good times, and possibly in
confusion of their life ahead.
When everything is rationalized in
the end, the Senior realizes one
thing: these certainly were "The Best

The thrill mirrored on 54 happy faces has a
very specific reason. These 54 Titans have
been chosen as members of Tech Legion.
Tech Legion is an honorary society for
outstanding Tech Students. lt does not
primarily honor academic achievement, but
rather citizenship, leadership, and other at-
tributes worthy of recognition.
Legion also has its own officers: those five
students with the most merits are named
captains. The two students, one boy and one
girl, with the absolute highest number of
merits are named co-commanders. This
year's captains were Penny Bibles, Dagmar
Butte, Anne Gin, Annette Hunter, and Lisa
Polston. The co-commanders were Kevin
Alcorn and Angela Pfile.
Underclassmen should set as their goal
membership in Tech Legion, an honor which
still has meaning.

Honor Students Study Fotuyr
One of the biggest honors at Tech can be
achieved through hard work. It is one of the few
things over which the student has total control. It
is gaining a 7.0 or higher grade point average.
To achieve this honor one need not be a bespec-
tacled genius. The things required are few, but
essential. One is a brain in good working condi-
tion, another is the ability to work hard. Once
these two have been put together the student is on
his way to a 7.0 grade average. This year 32
seniors had the necessary qualifications, and
knew how to put them together. Who knows how
many the future will hold.

The Best of Times . . .
5 4 ll
When one sees people having fun they usually think it is just the seniors, but
underclassmen do have their "Best of Times." A person can usually tell the
difference between freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
The freshmen find they have great freedom, and act as such. They can be seen
running around campus, and climbing in trees, acting like monkeys in other words.
The grades usually suffer during this year of school.
When the freshman turn into sophomores, they usually "mellow out." They crack
the books and keep their noses buried until one week is left in the year. The
sophomores soon anticipate their junior year, and get sophoritis towards the end
of the year.
The juniors are really wild. They think they can almost run the school. The
seniors will soon be gone and it is theirs to have.
This is a general summation of the different action of the grades. If one would
ask them, they would think that they had "The Best of Times."

The Best of Times . . .
The biggest part of "The Best of
Times" at Tech are activities other
than readin', writin', and 'rithmetic.
Students at Tech are offered a
variety of activities. They are sure to
Some of the most popular groups
seem to be the music groups.
Whether a singing group such as
Techoir, or an instrumental group
such as Band, a student's passion for
music will be sustained.
If the student is a club-type
person, the posibilities here are
endless. There is Mu Alpha Theta for
math nuts, or German or French for
those who speak another language. lf
drama is their thing, they can join
Drama Club. lf they want to help
construct the sets, they can join the
lf they are not "in to" clubs, or
music, but have a knack for making
speeches, they can join the Speech
Team. If they are "into" writing and
Journalism, Yearbook or Newspaper
are filled with fun.
Those students in a business or
vocational class, can become
involved in groups like V.l.C.A., and
I.C.E.C., concentrating on a
particular area of business or a
Students who prefer council-type
activity can join Junior Council or
SAO. The "brains" can find
happiness on the Brain Game.
Other activities of great interest
include Bowling Team, Genealogy
Club, and R.O.T.C.
There are even some activities that
happen only once a year giving
students a chance to "show their
stuff." These are the Fall Play, and
the Vica Talent Show.
Whatever a student chooses, it will
certainly be an added event to "The
Best of Times!"
Number 1 in Spirit!!!
Rain, snow or sun shine they are
there. Who are they? They are the Tech
Cheerleaders. Cheering at basketball
and football games, pep rallies and
other events. The cheerleaders are
there to boost the crowds morale, and
cheer the teams on to victory. The
senior cheerleaders this year are Denise
White, Celeste Webster, Kim Jones,
Tanya Northcross, and Myla White. Win
or lose, by one point, or by many, the
cheerleaders are there, putting smiles
on everyone's faces.

A Q - 1 L " T
Far from the crowded gyms on Friday
night, a group of cheerleaders practice.
They will not be cheering at every, and
some at no, varsity game, but their
workout is heavy. Yells and complicated
motions combine to raise the spirits of
the team. This scenario is familiar to
the Tech Reserve and Freshman
Cheerleaders. They are not yet Varsity,
but their spirit and enthusiasm is
comparable to any squad.

Mat Maids Show Spirit

The Mat-Maids are a time honored
institution at Tech. They cheer on the
always talented wrestling teams, with
shouts and stunts. They work hard
on their cheers in order to let the
team know that they wish them luck,
success, and a pin.
Mat-Maids are chosen by a similar
procedure as cheerleaders. They
also perform the same basic
functions, only for wrestling. A Mat-
Maid may have to put in a lot of hard
work, but it has its rewards.
The matmaids are arranged by spirit, all equally
important in everyone's eyes.
These three lovely young ladies certainly are
prettier than the wrestlers.
Speaking of pretty wrestlers, Which matmaid
would put Jerry in this group?
Oh, agony! That's one less to cheer for.

skill worth developing. They compete
against schools from all over the state.

The International Thespian Society is
an honor society for Drama Club
members. Induction into this great
society requires a total of at least ten
points. Points are accumulated through
difficult activities. Some of the such
activities include not only acting in plays
and musicals, but also attending plays,
working back stage at plays, and other
numerous activities. Different activities
are worth different points. Members of
the Society show that they are
interested enough in drama and its
aspects to accumulate these points.
Even after one has been initiated into
the society, he can keep accumulating
points until he is out of high school.

Tech audiences received a rare
glimpse into the workings of the
theatrical world when they attended the
presentation of "Stage Door".
The scene was set in a boarding
house for actresses, The Footlights
Club. One of the actresses, Jean

her dream. She is started in Hollywood,
and returns to the club in bittersweet
Two others, Judith Canfield lDagmar
Buttel, and Kaye Hamilton lAngie Pfilel,
have their own methods of dealing with
their profession. Judith covers
everything in hard biting sarcasm. Kaye
uses the ultimate escape mechanismg
she commits suicide.
The main focus of the play is Terry
Randall lTina Pricel, a struggling young
actress who desires only the stage. She
is influenced in her actions by Keith
Burgess lMichael Suessl, an aspiring
playwright, and David Kingsley lGeorge
Englandl, a famous Hollywood pro-
ducer. She gets her wish, and David
Kingsley in the bargain.
All these proceedings are under the
auspices of Helen Romayne Orcutt

I wonder who made them?" The answer
is quite simple. The sets were put

Club members, under the direction of

Stage Craft not only provides sets for
plays, but they also make signs, etc., for
The next time you sit in the
auditorium wondering who the artist
was behind a sign or prop, just ask a

Listening carefully to Mr. Brown's instructions
may prove to be helpful.

Sometimes getting the stage ready just means

A Salute to Activities!
It is that time again, the pages have
gone in, the stories have been written,
and the pictures have been taken,
maybe. This section has been put aside
as a showcase for Tech activities.
In the forty odd pages almost every
activity is represented. The key word
here is almost. For a variety of reasons,
such as lack of pictures, lost or stolen
pictures, errors in developing, some ac-
tivities will find themselves not
The fact that their pictures do not ap-
pear in this book does not make them
any less important. They are as vital a
part of the Tech community as any
other group. The major omissions are
DECA, SAO, ICT, and the Key Club.
DECA is the organization for
Distributive Education. This group is
comprised of students who are prepar-
ing for a career in business. They com-
pete in mock professional situations for
very real prizes. DECA has a member-
ship pooled mostly from career educa-
SAO is the Student Affairs Organiza-
tion. This group is a branch of student
government. They are involved in many
activities which promote Tech and
Titans in general. Members of SAO
sponsor a variety of events such as the
election of Homecoming and Basketball
Queens. They are involved indeed, and
their activities make Tech a more ex-
ICT is another organization for
students who are preparing for a
career. ICT is Industrial Careers Train-
ing. The students, under the sponsor-
ship of Mr. Holmes, are interested in a
variety of industrial careers.
ICT prepares Titans to be not only
competitive, but efficient.
Lastly, Key Club was omitted from
the pages of the Arsenal Cannon. This
Club is one of the most active at Tech. It
is also one of the few who do something
for others. The Key Club is a service
organization, providing services for
Tech and the Indianapolis community.
One of the Key Club's biggest ac-
tivities is in connection with the Salva-
tion Army's Bell Ringing campaign.
Tech led the high school division in
amounts collected. Tech bell ringers
brought in 380105.
Another Key Club function is during
Homecoming. Yes, they are the driving

There are other activities on the Tech
campus. They were not on our pages,
but they did affect Tech. This is not an
apology, but rather a salute to all ac-
tivities at Tech. They have shown Titans
not only the way to a brighter high
school career but to a better life.
The things which are learned from
participation in activities are invaluable.
Learning to take responsibilities, get-
ting along with other people, and having
new experiences will be beneficial to all
In conclusion, a word of appreciation
must be said to all activity sponsors.
They give of their time and talents in
order to provide a memorable ex-
perience for the students. Too often
their efforts are ignored. Sometimes the
students do not even give thought to
those people who bear the brunt of the
headaches. A "thank you" to the spon-
sors and the students who combined to
create the "Best of Times."

This professional club allows
students to explore their chosen
vocations. Students are able to
compete in contests, and gain practical

through the year. All their songs are

does just that. In the beginning of the

Madrigal Dinner. Lords and Ladies,
pages and wenches, and the ever
present jester entertain on the yuletide.
After the dinner, the group does a
rapid change. They become the Swing
Choir. Their repetoire includes popular

On occasion, the halls in the

with the sound of Jazz and Blues. Those
occasions are thanks to the Stage

Evans these talented musicians bring to
life the sounds of another era, as well as
those of today.
The Stage Band plays for various
events to the delight of its listeners. The

Stringing Cut the Year
"Have you ever played the
strings?" "What the heck are
strings?" you might ask. Strings are
violins, violas, cellos, and basses.
These instruments require
considerable skill to play, and
considerable talent to master.
One group which tries its best to
play and master these and other
instruments is the Orchestra. With
the help of its director, Mable Lewis,
these young musicians create a
sound all their own.

Picture yourself in a green suit. No
you're not Mr. Greenjeans, or even the
Green Giant, you are merely a student
in the Reserve Officer Training Corps.
The uniform identifies you as a member
of an extremely large group of students
here at Tech.
Let us follow you through a typical
day in the Barracks. You have a unique
opportunity here at Tech. When most
students learn in cold classrooms, you
are actually studying in buildings which
once housed real armed servicemen.
The Barracks are your main hangout.
If you happen to be fortunate you will
already be an officer. But for our
purposes you are a PFC, Private First
Class John Doe.
lt is Thursday morning, inspection
time. You make sure your shoes are
gleaming brightly, and the buttons on
your uniform shine. You begin classes
just as you ordinarly do. Perhaps you
are wondering why the rest of your
classmates are starting at your outfit.
You explain for the 454th time that you
have to wear your uniform every

question. The routine remains simple.

can't get all nervous, but you are. After
all, l forgot to tell you one thing, this is
your first inspection freshman.
Finally comes the big moment. You
are definitely nervous. Why shouldn't
you be? Sergeant Willis is an imposing
figure, and he is also your superior. Not
only is he above you, so are several
other students. You shake, and sweat,
but miraculously you survive.
Now it is time to concentrate on the
fun things. You make plans for your

is the drill team. But no, you are
somewhat of a klutz. The drill team
requires more skill and precision than
you can muster.
The rifle team, that sounds like fun.
So what if you never handled a gun
before. You're in school to learn. To
your surprise you are not allowed to
shoot immediately. You are told that
you must first show that you are familiar
with the weapon and the safety rules.
After all that you breathe a sign of
relief. lt seems you'll have plenty to do
in four years.

Without those teachers and
administrators to turn to when we
needed their help, their advice, and
often, their support, we would still be
needing help, advice, and support.
Many Tech teachers are there
whenever a student needs them.
Even if some teachers do not show it,
they care about their students.
The administrators keep the
school running, even if not always
smoothly. The administration has to
deal with many problems, ranging

behavior, to the large, often hard 1-
problems such as having to surplus
Once in a while, one comes across
a teacher or administrator who
seems to care more than all the
others. This is that special person to
whom you can turn to with problems,
and you know they will be able to
help you find an answer.
Sometimes, we may even teach
our faculty something. It may be as
simple as a different way of solving a
math problem, or as big as a new
outlook on life.
These are "The Best Of Times."
They are the "Times of Our Lives."
Let's make them even better.

THE BEST OF TIMES
When we think of Tech sports, we
think of "The Best of Times." Each one
of Tech's athletic clubs and their
athletes are something special. Each
shows the pride of Tech and the
students that make up the school body.
Whether it's the two points for a
basket, a pin to the mat, or a
touchdown on the football field, the
accomplishments of Tech athletes show
through proud, smiling faces, letter
sweaters, and medals.
But do not think that all this comes
easily, or quickly, for it does not. It
comes only after hard work. lt takes
many practices and much
concentration to keep with it, in order to
do well. With all this, a true athlete can
come through all the odds, and win in
Another important factor in sports is
the coaches, of course. Without the
coaches, where would the athletes get
their inspiration to carry on, and win the
game, meet, or match? The coaches
are there to give the instruction needed.
They are also there to give the pep talks
when the going gets tough, or the long
speeches when the going gets worse.
Whether good times or bad, "The Best
of Times," or the worst, the coaches are
When the time comes for Tech
athletes to give it their all, they do, win,
lose, or draw! Years from now, many of
Tech's students will look back at their
letter sweaters and pins, and remember
that those were "The Best of Times."

Track Team Doesn't Slow Down
Have you ever seen a bunch of run-
ners who were more determined to
reach the finish line than our Tech track
team? Our team has a sense of pride
that is unbelievable. These guys are un-
matchablel It takes time to get your
body into the right muscle structure and
to have coordination. After this goal has
been accomplished, the runners set
harder goals. Most of these guys have
met their goal, which is to be the best
runner that he can possibly be. Con-

The Titans golf team rounded out the
season with a good record, considering
the inexperience of the team. With its
return of only one Ietterman, the club-
bers posted an impressive 12-20
record. Next year the Titans will have
four returning Iettermen including David
Menard, David Lowe, George England,

mises to be better and hopes of city
champs are not beyond their reaches.

Guys Swing Well
What is there to do on a sunny after-
noon? Well . . . for these guys, there is
plenty!!! They constantly practice their
tennis techniques. Each of these guys
have a style all their own. To be able to
play tennis you have to be graceful and
have a lot of coordination. The tennis
teams always do well here at Tech, but
we are sure that they would do better
with more fans watching them. Tennis is
a great sport, ask anyone of these guys
and they will tell you just that!

Wrestlers Wrestle with Esteem
Both Varsity and Reserve wrestling
teams have reason to be proud. For
many years some of the best wrestlers
have been from Tech. Judging from
some of the meets, there are a lot of
good ones still here. Wrestling is one of
the toughest sports around and it takes
some tough guys to be able to do it.
Many hours of practice go into wrestl-
ing, but many times it pays off with
awards and trophies. These guys work
hard to achieve their full potential and
to keep Tech's wrestling team ranked
"And the meet has started..
. . he's got him down . .
Which one will have the victory?
"lt's almost over . . .!!!!"
i i f
"Fresh" New Start . . .
The freshman wrestling team is made
up of a bunch of unique individuals who
are looking toward the future on the
varsity or reserve wrestling team. Like
the upper teams, this team has a lot of
determination to do very well at their
meets. With extensive practice, these
guys can go far.

Two young wrestlers fight for the advantage.
This year's diving team dominated
other city teams. Their record was
outstanding. With a 18-4 record they
swept the City Tourney 1,2. Divers Billy
Haak and Gene'o Geist gave the swim
team the extra points they needed to
win some close meets. Their only
defeats were from Decatur Central,
Lawrence Central, Hamilton
Southeastern, and Speedway. The
divers did a fine job in the North Central
Sectionals with an 8th place finish by
Billy Haak and a 10th place for Gene'o
Geist. Both divers will be graduating
this year, and Tech is in dire need of
some fresh new talent, so come on out!

Ralo Flies to the Rescue
This year's boys' swim team was a
deprived team compared to past
teams. This team's record was just what
they did not want, a 7-10 record was all
the team could manage to squeeze out,
even though they did try their hardest.
With the return of Coach John Hall,
who coached at Decatur H.S. last year,
the team was worked fairly hard. Two of
this year's best meets were against
Marshall and Chatard.
Tech won second place inthe city
meet, which was held at Tech. The
winning team was Chatard, who beat
Tech by a slim number of points.
The team may have to start recruiting
earlier than usual to have a big team
next year, eight of this year's memberes
are seniors, Bill Lee, Joe Coleman, Bill
Haak, Gene'o Geist, David Hon, David
Menard, Jeff Fayetee, and Alan Nelson.
Congratulations to this year's team,
and good luck to all the remaining
swimmers for next year.

The varsity and reserve basketball
teams finished with the coaches com-
menting that the teams both had very
good potential and lots of talent. The
teams both had many outstanding ad-
vantages, such as a strong defense
which forced many errors on opposing
players. They also moved the ball quick-
ly and did the fast break as much as
possible. The teams had quick over-all
speed and had many good rebounds.
Although the season for both teams
was not the best, we can congratulate
them for not giving up. When the op-

Tech is coached by Mr. Dave George,
who is also a teacher of business. This
freshman team has a lot of spirit and
pride. These team members hope to
make it to varsity or reserve which is an
exciting challenge. To see the boys on
the floor against another team is a real
enjoyment. The guys have something to
really be proud of. Good-luck!

Although Tech's volleyball team had
a losing season, they really worked and
played hard. The season was a tough
one, but they pulled through with the
most spirit and pride a team could
have. The girls practiced many times
each week during their season. Team
members say that Mrs. Manka is one of
the best coaches around. She works
them hard, but only to show them what
it is really like to be on a team. With a
coach and team members as en-
thusiastic as ours, it's a wonder we
didn't win more games.

A Unique Group
The Alumna Association of the
Arsenal Cannon is a unique organiza-
tion. lt is comprised of people who
worked on our publications when they
were in high school. Now about 800
strong, this association supports the
publications in various ways. First, and
most important, they offer a scholarship
every spring to an outstanding senior
staffer. Letter sweaters are also given
to staffers with high grade point
averages and five semesters of service.
The alumni also supply us with equip-
ment of various kinds when we need it.
Our hats are off to the Cannon Alumni.
During the four years at Tech I met
several new friends and made great
personal gains. Upon coming here, I
was scared of the stories that I had
heard about the teachers and
numerous riots, but after the first year, I
learned the rumors to be false.
Tech is a great learning instituation.
Many opportunities are at your finger
tips, if you will just reach out. You can
not sit still and except popularity and
academic excellence to come to you,
you have to go for it. Tech High is only
what you make it. If you want it to be a
battle field it will be, and if you want it to
be a fun place, it can be that too.
Don't sit back and be one of the un-
counted few, stand up and let your
voice be heard.
While working on the Arsenal Cannon
of 1983, l met several difficulties, lack of
pictures, and unreliable staff members.
But when it came down to book or no
book, those staff members who were
truly dedicated came in on weekends,
over Christmas break, and after school,
and we got the book done. My thanks to
those staff members, you know who you
To the students of Tech, goodbye
and I hope you like the book. . .
