Qco jl - tr i. Im]®®(o1 of Elkhart Central High A name changes . . . Elkhart High School becomes Elkhart Central as the other half became Elkhart Memorial. Yet, Elkhart Central is not even a new name since the old EHS down- town used to be called ' Old Central ' . All of the traditions of EHS have continued at Central. Blue and white, ' Fight on Old Elkhart ' , Blue Blazers, Pennant publications — all time- honored traditions remain. Yet like old EHS, Central is continuously changing. Central ' s relaxed at- mosphere, its progres- sive spirit of striving for excellence and improve- ment in all phases of school life is always on- going. Elkhart Central is car- rying on the best of tra- ditions and making im- provements in them. But to understand our school, you must look at us individually — stu- dents, teachers, and ad- ministrators. Come. Share with us the Elkhart Central experience. I -1. ISmS Io)sr (ilas oo o Day by day, Elkhart Central stu- dents individually reflect vaiying moods. One moment serious and thoughtful. Another moment amused or exuberant. At the left, students enter Elkhart Central, preferably before 8:00 A.M. In art class Hugh Morrison creates some metal junk art. Cindy Scott con- centrates on a novel in English class. while Lynn Engle, seated in front of a poster filled bulletin board, pauses for a moment to reflect on her day ' s ac- tivities. Below, Ron Mayor tops off his cafe- teria limch with an ice cream bar. Greg Herron makes use of the lunch hour to proofread an essay. Out by the new benches given by the Class of ' 72, Melanie Lee and Lisa Dausey attempt to distract Jane Gosling and Laurie Linton who are trying to finish assign- ments. Que Swartzell finishes typing a pa- per, and a foreign language class takes advantage of a warm afternoon to conduct their class discussion on the banks of the Elkhart River which winds around the building. It ' s just another day at Elkhart Central High. IL©S],irinifi.im Learning is what Elkhart Central is all about. In and out of the classroom, students are improving their skills, ex- panding their knowledge, improving their ability to think and thereby pre- pare for a more rewarding future. Our varied moods often depend on whether we realize we are doing our best and succeeding. Even the best of us, however, will occasionally forget our studies and slough off. On the left, Becky Watts works on her typing speed, while Ed Cleveland details a drawing in drafting class. A math problem captures the attention of Tom Eastman. In a science experi- ment. Brad Sibley and Dave Stewart prepare a sex hormone shot for a chicken. Out of doors, Tony Irving gives his final speech in sophomore English to his classmates who sprawl on the lawn. Resting her head on the desk, Deb Estes relaxes at the end of the hour and contemplates her next class, while Gloria Woods cleans up after baking a cake. Below, Jody Gold works on an Al- gebra problem. John Fillio reads a special social studies report to his class. In the guidance office, senior Jeff Berkshire considers college choices. m A joyful exuberance and zest for life may be found among Elkhart Cen- tral High students. On the left, Shelley Vanelli cele- brates her birthday by donning a crown. With hair streaming, Sharon Fernald gallops her horse. At the prom, B.F.D. ' s lead singer shakes his tambourine. Nancy Buen zli and Ellen Chappell worship in the First Congregational Church. Guitarist Jo Ann Berkshire strums her guitar while Maiy Bums portrays frozen instants in the dance of life. Below, Tim Hess does a back flip. Meanwhile Betsy Williams is caught sneaking out of the Pennant Office to go buy donuts. Leaping joyfully, Bruce Andreson celebrates completion of his senior year at Elkhart Central. Drama Festival ' s production of ' Godspeir finds Dennis Krauser playing the role of Jesus Christ and the entire cast singing and dancing. Azaleas symbolize the beauty and impermanence of life. A fleeting mo- ment is shared by Kathy Cory and Vicky Price. IB.©Ilm flmi 10 A time to relax is always needed. Despite various pressures — academic, social or personal — Central students generally find time for themselves. At far left, Sandy Elting pauses from her work on a library paper. In her living room at home, Stevie Suther selects an Elton John albiun. On a bench outside ECHS, Vickey Johnson, Annie Bolan and Henry Jack- son pursue different interests. Soaking up some sunshine, Ed Cleveland, Ro- salie Raney and Kim Knipfel relax on the lawn during noon hour. " Biking it " is sophomore Donna Mills. On a weekend excursion at Is- land Park, Gaines Slayter and Terri Greening enjoy the scenery and river. Below, spring fever even brings out the playing with jacks, as Miranda Graham, Irma Scott, Diane Randall, Mary Jackson and Karline Hines take turns. Noon hour finds Bev Groff working on a paper under a shade tree, while others sprawl on the lawn and rap. After school. Ken Kasamas and Jeannie Pearmen cruise the St. Joseph river. On a humanities field trip to the Indianapolis Art Museiun, a police- man is puzzled by Bill Knapt ' s resting place. w I i™ sX ' -a. -..-, 11 ( [pa 7ams 12 H Striving for self fulfillment and en- joyment as well as competition, Cen- tral ' s Blue Blazers give it all they ' ve got. Wliile our moods may range from despair to elation, for most of us it ' s the pleasure of doing something we enjoy. At left, Jane Brown prepares to dive at a GAA swim meet. One of Cen- tral ' s tennis enthusiasts, Jim McNeile, returns a series of sei-ves as he prac- tices on the tennis court at Rice Field. On the afternoon of Elkhart Cen- tral ' s first graduation ceremony, se- nior Bill Phillipson works out as he circles the track field in front of the partially decorated graduation plat- form. Below, Charlie Bowen helps bring a victory to his relay team at the Goshen Relays while Jim Eldridge hands off to Pat Cataldo at the same meet. Senior Jeff Carmien gets in a few practice strokes on the lawn outside the Pennant Publications Office. Circling overhead, a Goodyear blimp urges " Go Blazers " . Yet, Elk- hart Central athletes need no special advertising to push them on. As was headlined in the Elkhart TRUTH after Central ' s defeat of Memorial in their first football playoff, " It ' s Still Blazer Country! " 13 mrnmifi 14 I Concern for our fellow man is one of the things that makes us human. At Elkhart Central this caring is expres- sed in the way we treat each otlier. On the left, a poster created for humanities class points out that " Love means appreciating people for what tliey are. " This applies to all living things as Janice Stetler illustrates witli her pet dog. Caring is also friendship such as that of Wendy Freeland and Carland Baldwin. A scholastic poster on an bulletin board shows a couple walking to- gether. On the bridge at American Park, Gloria Woods and Willie New- some pause. A light sprinkling of rain Jeff Bodette, Sonia Hill and Larry Reeser together, while a pleasant spring afternoon is all that Lynee Wal- ters and Tom Libert one need. brings Below, Linda Stone helps out at Elkhart General as a candy striper. At the end of the school day, Mark Vite and Mary Jo Eakle share parting views. While some Elkhart students care- lessly litter, others such as NHS mem- bers Lynn DiCamillo, Mark Szoboda and Liz Rhinehart pitch in and help clean up the environment. 15 :l Il jpi? iiim@ 16 I Expressing one ' s views goes along with learning and thinking. Central student expression can be found on bulletin boards, in The Pennant, the Penpoint or even at times on rest room walls. On the left, it is obvious that the Watergate scandal is having its im- pact not only in student collages but in the news media as well. The peace window of First Congre- gational expresses the commandment " Thou shall not kill " . November presidential elections finds Chet Martin campaigning for George McGovern while Gail Martin asserts that " Nixons the one " . A few, however, opted for Archie Bunker. Some felt Archie won. " Peace with honor " became the po- litical slogan of Nixon as the Viet Nam war ended and the POW ' s returned. The bombing of Cambodia continued, however, despite Congress ' cutting off funds. In art class, Greg Frick symbolical- ly portrayed " America " in its spelling. Sabrina Goodman expresses doubt as to the size of Jim Birkshire ' s pro- posed Agro. Another student shows off her smiling mushroom patches. In Ms. Susan Little ' s English class, a warning sign is posted over her desk. f.O 17 i, ZOO Kfl®®!! am iujiD)iiK5T? anim 18 School spirit has been evident this year at Central High with students en- thusiastically joining in the all school events. On the left, Mr. B helps spirit along fans at a football pep session. At a football game, Cheerleader Beth Batten lends her vocal support. Half-time performances featured the band and the Blazerettes. Tireless cast members sang and danced their way through ' Hello Dol- ly ' rehearsals. Below, trumpeter Bill Chase en- hanced one of several music concerts. A Christmas party for underprivi- ledged kids, saw Ken Kasamis as San- ta. Others sharing love were John Perry and Jim Porter. Nancy King and Rick Bontrager pause at the Christmas ball. Sadie Hawkin ' s dance finds Kim Schrock and Mike Brown stomping while the prom gave slaves. Bill Mer- ryfield and Kim Ferrell, time to dance. Central ' s first graduating senior, Jeff Adams, receives his diploma. 19 ' Hello Dolly ' displays elaborate sets BELOW— Cornelius nnisicallv envisions the ex- BELOW CENTER— Cornelius (Phil Baldwin) citing world outside of Yo ' nkers for Bamaby, Dolly (Trudy Scamehorn).

Talent plus style equals excellent production With certainty. Hello Dolly was the greatest and most elaborate perfor- mance presented in this schooFs audi- torium. Approximately $6,000 was used in the purchase of scenery, ma- terial, costumes and other expenses. Regardless of this huge amount, there was still a considerable profit shown. There can be only one expla- nation for such a tremendous success in a high school production and that is this: it didn ' t look like a high school production. Elaborate sets weren ' t the only rea- son for this. As the director said, the students were able to assume the char- acters of the people they portrayed. A constant reminder was " stay in character " and this was well done . . . almost to a professional degree Try Outs Try-outs were held Sept. 4, 5, and 6 and rehearsals started soon after- wards. From then on, the cast and crew became part of a separate world to which a majority of their time and work was devoted. Words and songs were memorized and dances were learned. Sets and cos- tumes were made and an enthusiastic group managed to get about 200 patrons. As Nov. 17, opening night, ap- proached, it was hard to believe that the time had come to pull everything together and put on a show. That is what happened and it was more than successful. Memorable Scenes Dolly opened on a large, enthuiastic audience who loved it immediately from the first scene to the last. Some of the more memorable scenes in- clude: " It Take a Woman " , " Sunday Clothes " , " Waiter ' s Gallop " , " Pa- rade " , and of course, " Hello Dolly " . The show ended with a standing ovation and a lot of praise from the first nighters. This praise didn ' t go unheard and the show was sold out for its last two nights with requests for an additional show. Hello Dolly!, directed and choreo- graphed by Mrs. Ann McDougall, star- red Trudy Scamehorn. Trudy ' s range and voice quality, acting ability, and personableness all added up to make her an excellent choice for this part. Barry Weaver played the part of Hor- ace and his deep voice aand logical attitude blended handsomely for this male lead. Major Roles Otlier major roles were held by John Quinn. Phil Baldwin, Ann Cover, and Nancy Peterson, Jen Cunningham. Don Deferbrache, Jeri Enimer- son, Melody Owens, and Bruce Andresen also had important character parts. The understudies, Jan Harreld and Dan Eggles- ton, botli did an excellent job of stepping in when Barry was away and Trudy ' s voice left, although lliey were never required for a per- formance. .AH the singing and dancing chorus people were both enthusiastic and talented. The dancing girls included: Beth Batten, Jan Harreld. Patrice Mason, Ijiz Naquin, Jane Swi- hart, Nancy Bissell, Boni Borgaard, Barb Carmen, Sue Nye. Melody Owens. Carol Rooker, Linda Stone, Stevie Suther, and Betsy Williams. The agile males consisted of Bruce Andresen, Pat Cataldo, Paul Hutb, Tom Jackson, Denny Krauser, Jim McNeile, Mark Mowery, Bob Sipe, Mark .Szobody who were the waiters and also Kurt Free. Hugh Morison, Tim Ritchie, and Dan Eggleston. Members of the girls ' singing chorus included Nancy Buenzli, Judy Blinn, Sandy Gosling, Kathy Houghton. Gina Pavoni. Sarah Sample, Kris Schwerha, Gayle Weaver and Leslie Wells. All the males also sang. Tremendous assistance was offered bv both faculty and students in the areas of scenery, costmncs, and directing by such people as Mr. Morgan, Mr. McDougall. Mr. Geyer. Mr. Emery, Miss Frey. Mrs. Queen. Mrs. Evers, Mr. Gowdy, Mrs. Tally. Mr. Jester. Ron Montandon, John Banks, Mike Nagy, Mrs. Reiff, Mary Malone, Rick Goad. Trudy Scamehorn, Melody Owens, Gayle Weaver, and Mrs. Brownwell. The stage managers were Joe Thompson and Mary Berkshire and the business manager was Lee Congdon. A lot of time and talent was also donoted by Becky Broadbent who was the re- hearsal accompanist. Of course, the show could not have made it without all the people who gave their time to work on the stage crew, set construction, props, lights, programs, publicity, tickets, ushers, and costumes. The orchestra was also an important part of the show and added a good musical frame on which the chorus could build. All in all. Hello Dolly! was an ex- cellent show and will long be remem- bered with praises from people who saw it. As one cast member said, " It was a blast! I ' ll never forget it as long as I live. " ABOVE — There ' s a pause in the dress rehearsal as Mrs. Ann McDougall and Mr. Dave Morgan offer suggestions and criticisms to the cast. 21 LEFT SERIES— Mike Talman {Barry Weav- er) threatens Suzy Hendrii (Ann Bomeman) because she won ' t tell him where she hid a doll containing a half million dollars worth of heroin. Suzy gets rid of Mike but Harry Boat Jr. (Mark Szobody) comes for the doll and, after some pers uasion, she gives the doll to him and backs up for a knife. After she stabs him, the story ends as the policeman (Kurt Free) arrives and she runs to her hus- band ' s (Joe Thompson ' s) arms. BELOW — Soon after " Hello, Dolly " , inductions were held for the new thespians. Also included in the ceremony was a reading and the showing of slides from the musical. From ' Dolly to ' GodspeW BELOW — Ms. Ann McDougall presents John Quinn with an award for his many per- formances in musical theatre at Elkhart Central High. I " Hello, Dolly " was just the first major accomplishment of the theatre department this year. Soon after the musical, there were inductions held for all those students who had earned enough points to become a member of the International Thespian Society. As the year progressed, there was the annual Qiildrens ' Theatre pro- duction. " Alice in Wonderland " was chosen as the play that 1400 ele- mentary students came to see. Gayle Weaver had the lead as Alice. " Wait Until Dark " was the ser- ious production of the year with Ann Bomeman playing a blind girl in a story of terror. " Harvey " was next as a hiunor- ous play starring Brad Barden type- cast as Elwood P. Dowd. In a two day combined effort, the Thespians sponsored the talent show, Ham-n-Cheese; and the drama festival the next day. Included in the festival were " GodspeU " , " Sand- box " , " Impromptu " , and " Diary of Ann Frank " . The year ended in a banquet in which awards for the year were pre- sented. Ron Montandon (for his work with lighting) and Trudy Scamehom (for her lead in " Hello, Dolly " and her work as president of Central ' s Thespian Chapter) re- ceived the highest award possible: best thespian. Outstanding contribution in the- atre awards were presented to Joel Digirolamo (sound engineer). Mel- ody Owens (costuming of " Hello, DoUy " ), John Quinn (performance in musical theatre), Elizabeth Na- quin (choreography of " God- speU " ), and Barry Weaver (achievement in acting). Also on the agenda at the ban- quet was the election of the new of- ficers, a light show, and a slide show of the year ' s highlights. Plans are already being made for next year ' s musical, " Camelot " . ABOVE — Cast and crew members from many years have autographed the false prosceniums during rehearsals and performances for pos- terity ' s sake. BOTTOM SERIES— Elwood P. Dowd (Brad Barden) places a picture of Harvey above the fireplace and later ends up at the psychia- trist ' s office with the nurse (Sandy Elting), attendant (Bruce Andresen), and Dr. San- derson (Denny Krauser). Later the attorney (Jeff Lint), Myrtle May (Becky Broa fl)ent), and Dr. Chumley (Bop Sipe) try to straighten the whole mess out. It is the cab driver (Lee (]ongdon) who finally convinces Elwood ' s sister (Beth Batten) that Elwood is perhaps more sane than any of the " normal " charac- ters in the play. 23 RIGHT— Central Blazer.

Team spirit was inspired that hadn ' t been felt since the state championship of two years ago. A voluntary pep rally attracted many enthusiastic fans. A Blazer flag was run up Memorial ' s pole, the lines down Blazer Blvd. were painted red, and a red " M " was even painted on the field. Crepe paper decorated cars, Rice Field, the stands, and the buildings. Former grads came home from col- leges all over the country to see the outcome of this important game. Both teams fought hard for the honor of being the school to win this first rival game. The blue Blaz- ers came out on top with a score of 9-7 and therefore were awarded the Mangy Lion. This was the trophy cai-ved by Lions ' Club member, James A. Hol- land, and it is " a symbol of strength and honor " to be " awarded annual- ly to the Elkhart ball champion to versal spirit of tition " . high school foot- promote the uni- friendly compe- BELOW — Spirits weren ' t dimmed by the fact that the Blazers were the visitors.

BOTTOM— The voluntary pep rally was marked by good participation, a lot of spirit, and singing with music pronded by the pep band. ' = Christmas keeps students busy Three special Christmas events kept students busy this year. Seven hundred fourth-grade stu- dents from the Elkhart Community School system visited CHS Decem- ber 19th and 20th for the drama class production of Alice in Won- derland. Costumes and lighting played a big part in making the drama a suc- sess. Animal outfits made by the crew along with the excellent acting, led by Gayle Weaver as Alice, gave the visiting students an enjoy- alile relief from their books. " Blazer Christmas " was the theme of the Pep Club ' s spirit week. Basketball players socks under the chimmney, Blazer bolts on the Christmas tree, and gifts to Blazer athletes were some of the things students saw as third-hour classes decorated their rooms in hopes that they would win first place in the decorating contest. A special group of teachers and students judged Mr. Robert Ellis ' American government class the room that was decorated the best. " The Spirit of Christmas Past " was the theme of the National Honor Society ' s Christmas dance which was held December 26th. The semi- formal dance included students from both Central and Memorial High Schools. A holly arc, a scene by the fire- place, eggnog, fruit breads, cookies, Christmas trees, and good music brought the true spirit of Christmas back to the students. TOP — Gayle Weaver portrays Alice and Melody Owens plays Chessie, the chesire cat, in a scene from the drama production. ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

Doc ' s soda fountain and a big heart inscribed with " Betty Lou -n- Teen Angel " set the scene for the " Nifty Fifties " Dance. It was the " girl ask boy " affair this year for Central, sponsored by Girls ' League. Memorial sponsored the first such dance which was the Sadie Hawkins. The Memorial turn- out for this dance was quite large. " Boss " music was provided by The Goodtime Company and free refreshments were served. The action was as wild as the 50 ' s themselves. There was a hula hoop contest and dancers formed a bunny hop line which became progressive- ly more like a whip. Participants tried to dress accord- ing to the style of the times. There was everything from leather jackets to saddle shoes and, of course, many pairs of the infamous white bobby socks. 28 ■i ' 1 I ■I I ABOVE— Larry Wood and Deb Price model the outfits they plan to wear at the Nifty Fifties Dance.

FAR RIGHT— Deb Stajkowski, and Steve Arco, and Deb Stackhouse and her date Curt Hosteller dance in the student center of Memorial High School. 30 Memorial site for Sadie dance Memorial was the site of the 1973 Sadie Hawkins dance. The old Elkhart High School tradition was to have a Sadie Hawkins dance every spring, but because of the division of Elkhart High, the tra- dition was changed. A division was made to have only one Sadie Hawkins dance, inviting the students of both schools, instead of having a separate dance at each school. Memorial decided to spon- sor the Sadie Hawkins dance, so Central ' s Girl ' s League chose the theme of Nifty-Fifties to be their dance for both high schools. March 14 was the date of this year ' s Sadie dance held in Memor- ial ' s student center. The decorations of L ' Abner and Daisy May, along with the nuptial knots tied by Mar- ry ' n Sam and the good music, made the dance a big success.

An experiment was attempted this year in the areas of humanities, language arts, and social studies. These classes were combined for a week in an Asian Studies Seminar. Mr. Van Young and Ms. Ethel Thorn were the faculty coordina- tors but many outside educators were brought in for the actual classes. Teachers from other subject areas such as Mr. Rod Leichty from the art department helped with the students who wanted to make raku pots. M s. Kumiko Umino, a student from I.U.S.B., taught kabuki dancing. Mr. Walter Compton brought a film and some examples of his sa- murai sword collection for a pre- sentation. Even some students themselves taught some classes such as origami. the ancient art of Japanese paper folding. Also offered were calligraphy (Chinese writing), bonzai (oriental tree sculpture), zen (Japanese phil- isophical meditation), and mah jongg (a Chinese game). The seminar was quite success- ful and it is hoped that there will be similar seminar type courses. i ■--Tn T j Sf?. ' ' ' !

" That ' s what some skeptics said when the prom was switched from Northside Gym to the school cafeteria. But they were wrong. Other traditions were broken also. The breakfast was held at the Electric Circuit instead of the Elks. There was talk of letting sophs at- tend but they only came as slaves. " Fantasia " was the theme, and the school was transformed into a fantasyland of Disney characters and make believe. The cafeteria was unrecognizable and many thought the prom was better than ever. Entertainment was provided by B. F. D., a group from Chicago. While dress was fonnal, many girls wore halter dresses and some wore even pant suits. Not all of the guys wore tuxes, as many came dressed in sports coats or suits. After the breakfast, the day was beautiful for the dunes or just about anything else.

Fake juke boxes and walls covered with paper records of songs popular in the fifties were a part of the decorations. Hula Hoop contests and the crowning of ' Teen Angel ' and ' Betty Lou ' also highlighted the dance. A Senior Tea was held May 27 on the same Sunday as Baccalau- reate. Senior girls and their mothers were invited to listen to an inspira- tional speech by an outside speaker. Three projects kept the Future Teachers of America busy this year. A tea was held after school for the teachers to help members become better acquainted with teachers. Punch and cookies were served. Mittens and hats, along with other winter clothes were also collected by the FTA. These were distributed to the needy children. Visiting area schools during the vacations was another project for FTA members. They observed teaching procedures and student be- havior to see if they were really in- terested in becoming a teacher and to learn new ideas.

Required speech classes for the sophomores and other optional speech and debate classes gave in- coming sophomores and other stu- dents a chance to see if they enjoyed speaking and were interested in joining NFL. Members also went to their for- mer junior high schools to explain to students what National Forensics League is and what its purpose is in hopes of recruiting new members. Even though NFL members did- n ' t go to many meets because of limited funds, one member did go to the State this year. Kandi Wash- burn placed fourth in a discussion speech in the State meet.

Political, religious. and music polls were some types that students participated in. Various section editors of the newspaper staff sent the polls to cer- tain types of classes so there would be a good student cross-section. Five people from the fourth hour journalism II class headed the news- paper production staff under the direction of Bob Sipe, editor. The first hour journalism class al- so supplied articles for the news- paper, so the responsibility could be spread around. Summer delivery of the PEN- NANT ANNLTAL was the goal of the sixth hour yearbook class that was added to the curriculum this year. This class gave the seven sec- tion editors and the photographers a better chance to meet with the teachers for inter ' iews and more time to work on getting students out of study halls for pictures. HELLO DOLLY and coverage on the new Central-Memorial rivalry were featured in the student life section this year. Even though the book was smaller, students had more chances to he pictured since the school was divided.

Many stu- dents were involved in " Hello Dol- ly " as perfoiTTiers. The Christmas season was busy with two concerts, a T.V. show, and 15 carol appearances. The district and state contests followed, with Central placing 12 students with di- vision one solo ratings and 26 stu- dents with division one ensemble ratings at the state contest. A Memorial-Central sacred con- cert followed on April 12, and Cen- tral participated with five other schools in a choral festival held at Penn High School. The May 4th Spring Concert and commencement ended the activities for the year. " One at Every-Gate " was the composition commissioned by the Elkhart Central Choir for the pre- mier at the May 4th Spring Concert. Kent A. Newbury set tlie poem entitled " Opportunity " written by John James Ingalls, to words. The music was the 3rd composition com- missioned for the choir. Mr. John Lund directed the first joint Memorial-Central concert choir production held April 12. The re- quiem, by Faure, was the music used.

He also left a lasting impression on the orchestra students whom he performed with. Responsibility and respect was what Mr. Darling gave to the stu- dents and was what he received in return. His enthusiasm for music was in- spiring. He composed music for the concert; he also helped stu- dents with their contest pieces. Stu- dents were also taught to play exotic music instruments like the tam- balies. All of the music played by Mr. Darling at the concert was written by himself. His creativity showed in the types of music he played: such as, jazz; blues; ' wa-wa ' music; and electrified music. The most important music selec- tion of the concert was Darling ' s solo requiem mass on the cello while he was accompanied by the orches- tra. The mass, written for Darling ' s friend who was killed in the war, was the personification of music throughout the soldier ' s life. The guest musician for the band this year was Bill Chase. Students had wanted Chase for a couple of years, and they finally were able to get him this year. Mr. Chase was here for two concerts with the band, featuring him in a solo performance with the stage band. A combined highlight for the or- chestra and band students was the trip to Canada. Students left April 26th for the four day trip which took them to Fonthill and Kitchener, Ontario. An evening concert was played at each city, and on the morning of April 27th, a concert was played for the students in Kitchener. A highlight of the trip to Canada was a visit to Niagra Falls. v pr ABOVE LEFT— Band: Row 1: Jackie Fillio, Gail Emerson, Beverly Groff, Tom Schrock, Kathy Bock, Debbie Dockins, Sally Kurtz, Barb Kunkle, Joan Labium, Diana Dovey, Elizabeth Hruby, Linda Peer.

The promotion of this new spirit was helped along by this year ' s active Pep Club. The club, which consisted of about twenty girls, was kept busy by many projects. Selling " Blazer Power " buttons, decorating the halls and dances, and making hoops for all the home football and basketball games were a few of the things Pep Club did. A new type of spirit was also seen in the cheerleaders. The six girls, led by captain Nancy Brother- son, cheered for more than the foot- ball and basketball teams. At cross country meets, the girls could be seen cheering the runners as they approached the finish line. After- wards, the harriers weie treated to " goodies " made by the cheer- leaders. The smiling faces and good cheers from the cheerleaders added a lot of Blazer spirit to the atmos- phere of the school.

SO Intramurals: Ability separates teams Intramural season started late this year after undergoing a few changes in rules. The first game was during Christmas vacation. Mr. David Duthie, who sponsored intramurals, and team captains agreed to separate the teams into two leagues according to the ability of the players. The more talented teams were placed in the Blue League, and the other teams were placed in the White League. Each team played every other team in its league at least one time. At tourney time, the leagues were united and the pair- ings were made. Tourney time showed Hughes Holdouts as the best team after they defeated Utero 45-40 for the intra- mural basketball title. Glen Artley was the high scorer for the Holdouts with 17 points. Utero looked like they would up- set the Holdouts at the end of the first quarter, but the Holdouts came back to lead at the half time. Utero fell behind in the third quarter, and the Holdouts retained a five point lead in the fourth quarter to give them the victory over Utero.

Softball began the winning year for the girls with an undefeated season. Badminton followed with a 5-1 record and volleyball ended with an 8-2 season. The girls ' swimming team showed the beginnings of a victorious season when the 220 yard medley relay team set a new record and qualified for State in the second meet. Girls in the single competition also qualified for the State meet which was held March 31 in Seymour. The basketball team had a good season widi many players returning as veterans. The veterans track team also went into the sectional track meet held at Memorial as the defending Sectional and Regional champs. The GAA Athletic Banquet ended a winning year for the girls in the spirit of promoting competitive ath- letics for girls along with healtliy at- titudes and strong bodies.

A reception for the patrons and participients in " Hello Dolly " was the first project on the agenda for members. This party, held in the cafeteria, was for the purpose of thanking tlie patrons for their dona- tions and aid in helping to make the production of " Hello Dolly " possible. A caroling party for the elderly people at Turtlecreek Nursing Home was one of the Christmas season events for NHS members. The other was the Christmas dance " The Spirit of Christmas Past. " Held December 26, the dance was a combination of different scenes, Christmas trees, fruit and nut bread, and eggnog. April 8 was the date set by NHS members for a clean-up projects by the river next to the school. The clean-up produced quite a bit of trash that later had to be hauled away. An Easter egg hunt was held Sat- urday, April 21 for the under- privileged children in the area. Eggs were dyed and decorated by mem- bers of NHS for the hunt.

The choosing of members was completely different than last year. Instead of having each third hour class choose a representative, each club was allowed to choose a rep- resentative or any student with twen- ty-five signatures automatically be- came a representative-at-large. Meeting times were also changed. The second half of lunch hour and some class time was used for the meetings. Two main projects for Student Council this year was the Christmas party and the ' Ride-A-Bike. " Student Council sponsored the annual Christmas party for the un- derpriviledged children. Student Council representatives, as well as other students, entertained the guests with games and gifts that were given to the children. " Inter-Racial Relations Group " was the name of the new, formally recognized club that was formed this year by eight students. The purpose of the club was to promote understanding and better relationships among students. Stu- dents could also come to members of the club to discuss problems. Controlling rumors was also another purpose of the club. The major project for the club was the beginning of the Annual John Perry Track Award. The award, funded by the Elkhart Ur- ban League, was presented for the first time this year to the outstand- ing senior track member in honor of John Perry, who was killed in an auto accident.

All year long English teachers have been completely rearranging the English curriculum. New courses of study have been written to implement the new phase elective program. Rather than take junior or senior English, students are now able to select from a wide variety of courses on levels of difficulties ranging from Phase I to Phase V. Semester courses are now avail- able in a wide range of areas such as poetry, short story, novels based on a certain theme, film making, drama. Biblical literature, mass media, and creative writing. These are in addition to traditional courses. This year English students have worked on multi-media presenta- tions, and creative visual and writ- ten projects. They explored film making and creative photography. Poetry written by many students found its way into the Penpoint. Journalists found expression for their reporting, analysis, and news features in the Penpoint newspaper. TV classes studied the technical phase of television production while speech and drama students were in- volved in many contests and theatre productions.

Thirteen girls took part in the program and were sent to various Elkhart agencies to do volunteer work. Each girl was assigned to three different community service areas for on-the-job experience. The girls spent six weeks at each place. At the end of each term they related their observations to Ms. Warrick. In cooperation with the Human- ities classes, Ms. Ethel Thorn helped direct an Asian Studies seminar in which her World Problems classes participated. This seminar is dis- cussed on page 32. Among other special projects in the Social Studies department this year was a marriage and family unit of study involving the classes of Ms. Warrick and Mr. Robert Ellis. During this xmit, students were able to choose, on given days, between two seminars in which dif- ferent speakers were brought in from neighboring areas. Another addition to the depart- ment was the resource center. Equipped with one student as an aide each hour, students were able to come in at any time during the day. Many books, magazines, and pamphlets were made available here for the students ' use.

In place of a written project, a few of Mr. Adam Bossnack ' s Ger- man students put on a " Peanuts " skit. They performed it for their class, speaking entirely in German. All of Mr. Bossnack ' s classes took a few times off during the year to play a game of soccer. The students played during their German hour. Most of the time the class was split into two teams but one class did take on a Spanish class. Spanish students were busy with a variety of projects. Some students created maps and Mexican houses while others cooked tacos, slan, a Spanish custard, and other Spanish dishes. Reports kept most of the French students busy. Mr. George Alexen- ko ' s French Composition class was required to write a paper every week. Their topics ranged from pol- itics to animals. Oral reports were a big part of all of Mr. Alexenko ' s classes. During the lunch hour, Mr. Alex- enko taught his native tongue, Rus- sian, to a small group of five stu- dents.

The new offer- ing was a three-year sequential Uni- fied Science program. Both the traditional program and the Unified Science program will prepare an individual for college. The primary differences are less repetition and greater continuity from one year to the next in the Uni- fied Science program. Areas of study in the Unified Science classes were of a broader nature due to the elimination of the boundaries between the separate science disciplines. Five Unified Science I classes were taught by Ms. Nancy Willis and Mr. Charles Beeson this year. Next year more first year classes will be scheduled and two Unified Science II classes will be offered. ABOVE LEFT — Games Slayter makes a volu- meter during Ms. Nancy Willis ' Life Science II class.

Geometry classes of Mr. Kevin Smith took part in a five week structured program. Over forty pro- jects included the researching and writing of a paper explaining the various math precepts involved. During these five weeks the stu- dents were required to build a small model which led up to the major part of their project which was con- structing a more extensive model. Among the finished products was a geodesic dome made of recyclable trash. Because of the stressing of re- search, a new resource center was started this year. Students were able to go in and use the room and materials during any hour of the day. Although there were only a few books available in the resource cen- ter this year, the department hopes to have enough money next year to equip it better. Another change in the mathemat- ics department was the appoint- ment of a new department chair- man. Because of the retirement of Mr. Rex Harvey last year, Mr. Rus- sel Busse was selected for the job. ABOVE RIGHT— Sonia Hill struggles over a problem in Mr. Randall Miller ' s Plane Geometry class.

Many different types of classes were scheduled at the same time in order to broaden the range of areas. All of the courses were re- arranged and extended from last year. Painting and Drawing and Sculpture and Textiles were grouped together. Workshops and labs were also offered to advanced students. Mr. Liechty and some of his stu- dents built on the school ' s river property an outdoor kiln for the art department ' s use. Central and Memorial students reunited their talents and put to- gether an exhibit on the weekend of March 16. They demonstrated tech- niques and displayed their works at the Pierre Moran Mall. Many field trips added to the in- terest of the courses. They com- bined with the Humanities classes to go to the Indianapolis museum along with trips to museums in St. Marys, Goshen and Chicago.

This did not de- crease the number of activities. Each group had a very busy schedule including contests, con- certs, and guest performers and directors. The split in schools also brought a new member to the staff. Ms. An- na Talley came over to Central from Northside Junior High. Along with a new director, one school orchestra was established combining all three grades. This compensated for the decrease in the number of students. In addition to its regular fimc- tions, the band put on " Opus ' 73. " Featured in this concert were fifty flutes from area schools directed by Mr. Mark Thomas, vice-president of Armstrong Flute Co., a trombone solo by Chris Hampton and another guest conductor, Nilo Hovey from H. A. Selmer. Choir students were constantly preparing for various concerts. De- spite the smaller size, they tackled difficult pieces such as " Worthy is the Lamb " from the " Messiah. " Mr. William Gowdy was the only choir director this year as Mr. John Limd was shifted over to Memorial. Now all three choirs were taught by Mr. Gowdy instead of just the Concert Choir.

Students learned the importance of attendance, carrying out assigned jobs to completion, and taking in- structions graciously from the em- ployer. During the second semester, Bus- iness Law students visited a court- room in order to obsei-ve first-hand, the workings of the judicial system ' Students, more than ever, re- quested to take business courses. Typing especially was very popular this year and much effort was made in juggling schedules to accomodate all who were interested. Students worked on a part-time basis through the co-op program. They worked in four different areas: business and office, health, sales, and industrial work. These seniors worked for a minimum of fifteen hours and up to forty hours. Besides the learning experiences, they were paid for their work.

WJ ' i Home Economics: Single and dual livings courses are offered After two years of planning, a of a teenager and the other was Students in Conte After two years of planning, a new curriculum was established in the Home Economics department. Four new courses were developed: Single Living, Dual Living, Con- sumer Education, and Contempo- rary Families. Students in the Single Living classes were guided in their relation- ships with others. Self-concepts, self-improvement and general man- agement of time and money were stressed. Mrs. Bernett from the dairy coun- cil, helped the girls conduct an ex- periment with white rats, whose nutritional system is much like that of humans. One rat was fed the diet of a teenager and the other was given a good nutritional diet con- taining all the necessary vitamins needed. After a length of time it was found that the rat which had been fed potato chips, carbonated bev- erages, and other foods eaten daily by teenagers, was losing hair, be- coming weak and in general poor health. Dual Living introduced the stu- dents to the problems, responsibil- ities, and adjustments entailed in living with another person. The stu- dents went into all aspects including managing college life, life on one ' s own and marriage. Students in Contemporary Fam- ilies discussed and were prepared for the future. Projects were con- ducted on subjects as stretching out one ' s budget. Those taking Consumer Educa- tion were warned and informed of their rights and responsibilities as encounter taxes, credit problems, and frauds and false adverti sing. Another addition to the Home Ec- onomics department was a new teacher, Ms. Lois Kreiser. Among other classes, she taught Child Guid- ance in which pre-school children came in three times a week for ac- tivities and observation.

Students in Drivers Education were taught by a new Student Re- sponse System. This system, which took the place of a normal class- room situation, consists of 15 units of films, cassettes, and slides. Each student has a response unit placed before him, which asks him questions. Immediately upon the re- sponse of the student, it indicates that the answer was right or wrong. Together with the Board of Healli, police and local pharma- cists, Narc. Ed. students sponsored a program at Concord Mall. This included displays, demonstrations and films. Some of the Narcotics Education students also went out and talked to junior high and elementary stu- dents. Others served on various panels. Both boys and girls took Indus- trial Arts courses this year. A new course. Home Mechanics, was very successful, especially with the girls, in teaching them fundamentals ' of small home repairs. Central ' s Workshop turned out projects ranging from a kayak to a coffin (see page 63) while a stu- dent in the Machine Shop con- structed a powered tricycle.

Cross Country: Big Blue Bunch capture sectional fifth in state meet Featuring a virtually unbeatable combination of youth, experience, and depth, the ' 72 Blazer distance men completed the most successful season of all Central High teams. Coach Marshall Sellers, in his third season as cross country coach, found a new home course for the Blue Bunch at Ox Bow Park. The harriers responded by compiling a 9-0 dual meet record plus three invitational crowns to their credit. Placing fifth at the state meet and second in the regional, the Blue Bunch set a new point total record at the sectional with 24. Of the top seven runners, Cap- tain Steve Ferguson was the only senior as six juniors rounded the crew. They consisted of Rick Bon- trager, Gary Long, Al Haynes, Dave Slaughter, and Tony Guy. An extra half mile was added to the courses this year which wiped out all old records and affected more than one runner. Roger Kline holds the Central record with a time of 12:56.00.

Football: Fluctuating season mars grid record, Memorial bows in rival opener In a year that went from up to down to back up again, the Central Blue Blazers compiled a 5-5 record in their first season as a new school. Opening victories in the first two games sent the Blazers to a No. 2 ranking in the state polls. But an over- time loss to Washington plus four straight losses after a near win against Riley sent the Blazers way out of sight. Central, however, evened out the year with two finishing wins including the opener of the Central-Memorial series. The game was won on the toe of Amos Dooley whose fourth quarter field goal was enough margin for the 9-7 victory. Dooley was the bulk of the offense as he was perfect in seven field goal attempts and was the decisive factor in three games. His field goal with no time left in the Washington game sent it into overtime and he was the total offensive output in four games. If the season was disappointing from the standpoint of the won-loss record, there is hope for next year as Coach Kurth will have 25 returning lettermen for next year ' s campaign.

On defense, Amos Dooley won the most interceptions award and Dennis Scates was the top defensive player. Tom Eastman and Rich Wingo shared the most tackles award. Rich was also named to the junior all-state team. On offense, Jim Morningstar took the leading ground gainer award and Jetton Jordan was the leading pass receiver. Amos Dooley won an award for his field goal services. Along with his other honors, Tom Eastman added the Jack Douberteen Memorial award as the 1973 captain. Eastman was named to three all-state teams and the NIC squad. He was joined on the NIC squad by Dooley and Scates. The MVP award went desei " vingly to Amos Dooley. Dooley not only played both offense and defense but set a school record by converting seven of seven field goal attempts in a single season.

Not only did several make it out of sectional but Dave Hig- gle won the state in his class and Gary Harper took a surprising third.

Central averaged only 58 points a game which may be attributed to the lack of second and third shots at the basket. Although the Blazers won only four games all year and none after the holi- day tourney, they did not lose them all that badly.

Hitting was not the problem this year as the Blazers led the NIC in team batting but the lack of good pitching, inconsistency and costly fielding errors held back the Blue. Coach Miller brought several pitch- ers from the junior varsity to help bolster his staff and his best was Jim Wiskotoni. Jim could have been a big help to the team but was later striken with an emergency appendectomy. The team was led in hitting by Glen " Big Boy " Artley who led the NIC in home runs and RBI ' s. Phil Pixley batted around .400 all year and led the team in extra base hits. en Artley was named the teams MVP and also won the Offensive Play- er award. Dave Coss was the top de- fensive player.

When many seniors were busy re- hearsing for ' Hello Dolly, ' others were practicing their punts and passes for the final football game of the year against their former teammates at Memorial. As falling leaves turned to falling snow, seniors were involved in ser- vice projects through National Honor Society, and planning committees for the N.H.S. sponsored Christmas dance. Seniors spent many hours making plans for the coming year. While some students sought full time jobs for after graduation, others combed through college catalogues, looking for a school where they would fit in. When warm weather rolled around, thoughts turned to proms and gradua- tions. Some seniors with Memorial dates attended the Memorial prom at Concord Mall, while others choose their own prom held at the Central cafeteria. A combined Baccalaureate brought Central and Memorial seniors together for the last time, and reunified what had once been a single class. As graduation day grew closer, many seniors found themselves secret- ly praying for a clear night after a rain-plagued week. And, apparently, the prayers paid off. At seven-thirty on May thirty-first, four hundred fifty-nine seniors filed stately into Rice Field, together for the last time, at the first Central High School graduation. The graduation marked not only the first Central grad- uation, but the continuance of a Blazer tradition.

Nixon was re-elected, the war ended, Watergate, two high schools in Elkhart, the sophomore building was torn down, and sopho- mores went to class with juniors and seniors for the first time in sixty years.

They made them- selves known scholastically, in sports, in drama, and every social function.
