What a drag; school starts next Tuesday and summer ' s almost over . . . My program card is a totalloss; four study halls and three lunches . . . Thought for the day: Always jump back from locker when opening it to avoid avalanche of falling books ... Friday at last! Only 35 more weeks of school left. As the 75 school year shifted from neutral into first gear, ■ many students were reluctant to leave behind their summer fun and return to the crowded halls and unopenable lockers of -•■ " -, ;. school. Pre-registration went smoothly for some, but for others it meant a long wait to clear up computer errors with v? counselors. |l The first half-day " get-acquainted " session was filled with a v ' ' myriad of questions from sophomores, and with the boredom of seniors only too eager to get the ball rolling toward graduation. Textbooks were passed out and lockers were — ' V ' " " " tT ' ■ -v crowded with the usual jumble of notebooks, pens, and „ " ' • ' • " " .. " papers. Sl| -.A». -« .vit. Parking stickers came later, along with HlfeN . J pink tow-away slips, for all those who fcl ' I ' LL " ° " ° wheels.

With only four lunch mods instead of -B arrrT " —- r-r- , five, the Cafeteria was more Crowded than ever but the noise level never went above a dull roar. New friends and old congregated at tables to discuss homework, hassles, and the latest news of the day. A mad dash for the buses , , ended the day as the stream of cars - MM ■ " x ;. poured out of the parking lot.

Added to the usual mixture of blacks and whites were two Oriental faces fresh from the tragedy in South Viet Nam. Quang and Loan Nguyen left Saigon with their families last April to escape the Communist rule. They now live in Fort Wayne and are gradually adapting themselves to the American lifestyle. Two exchange students, Man ' a Elena ArgiJello from Costa Rica and Andrea janser from Switzerland, gave students a taste of their cultures as they joined the crowds from eight to three and shared in their excitement at games. The racial tension seemed to be at an all-time low as everyone worked together to have the best year possible. With Mr. Horstmeyer in his third year as principal, most students knew of his support and concern for them, and used him as a sounding board for their problems and ideas. Although the first semester was halted by a three-day teachers ' strike in September giving the students a welcome vacation, everyone picked up where he left off when school reopened. Few if any hard feelings remained, when the strike ended, between the strikers and those who had reported to work, although athletic practice and music rehearsals had continued during the dispute. 1.

With kids still being bused for integration, the district has expanded into the inner city as well as to Waynedale on the south and to Tower Heights on the north. During the past few years, students have gradually become accustomed to busing and their new schools. Instead of feeling alone and surrounded by strangers, kids formed new friendships and felt more a part of the spirit and activities that highlighted the year. Blacks and whites still remained divided despite the efforts toward integration. Most activities other than athletic events were attended by either blacks or whites, depending on who sponsored the get-together. The curriculum offered courses such as anthropology, the study of man and his origins, and sociology, the study of man as he behaves in groups, to broaden students ' understanding of others. These classes presented such new ideas as how man ' s prejudices began, which some students had never before considered. A consciousness-raising group began in late October to help the female half of the student body understand various alternatives open to them in society. As students became more open-minded, tensions relaxed and peaceful coexistence turned into friendship. Old Fort 1. The hand-carved totem pole at the Children ' s Zoo. 2.

The construction of the Old Fort is really coming along . . . Her story certainly adds a feminine touch to the Bicentennial celebration . . . Didn ' t you think the displays of colonial crafts at the Johnny Appleseed Festival were fantastic? One of the many projects launched in commemoration of the Bicentennial year was the reconstruction of Old Fort Wayne off Spy Run Avenue on the bank of St. Mary ' s River. The original fort, located at the confluence of the St. Joseph, St. Mary ' s, and Maumee Rivers, was built in 1 794 by Anthony Wayne. Downtown Fort Wayne today is a striking mixture of new and old. Although there has been little activity on the Landing lately, from 1843 to 1856 this historic street was a bustling center of trade. The modern City-County Building is located across from the Landing, and nearby are scenic Freimann Park and the geometrical brick Performing Arts Center. As Fort Wayne continues growing beyond its boundaries with new housing developments and shopping centers, these buildings help to keep the downtown area alive. The Freedom Train, pulled by a 1946 T-1 Reading steam engine and loaded with the ... ■ Bicentennial spirit, made a three-day stop in . - Fort Wayne last June. 80,000 people from the city and the surrounding area came to visit the train and recapture the spirit of days gone by as they rode through the train on moving walkways. Each of the ten railroad cars depicted a different phase of American history covering everything from Hollywood ' s golden oldies to modern space travel.

To their right are seniors Kevin Lee and Stan Prince. Right: Senior Claudia lohnson receives her bouquet of roses just seconds after being crowned 1975 Homecoming Queen. At first glance. Homecoming could have been classified as a flop. With gusting winds and icy cold rains, conditions weren ' t exactly ideal for one of the year ' s biggest events. Throughout " Chaos Day, " Mother Nature kept threatening to turn the floats into blurry, soggy messes despite efforts to convince her that homecoming was NEXT Friday. (1 know, I know, " you can ' t fool Mother Nature " .) In fact, it was so bad (How bad was it?) ... It was so bad that the AFS Club finally had to throw in the towel after ten people couldn ' t hold their weather balloon float down. The evening blew around snow-like drizzle and convinced the band to shed uniforms in favor of long underwear beneath jeans and jackets. The Marching Trojans shivered through the pre-game show and proved to be unstoppable with hits like Midnight Cowboy and T.S.O.P. The football team also had some fantastic hits (commonly referred to as tackles). After Homestead fumbled on the five yard line, we picked it up for the only score of the game. Our first Homecoming victory since 1970, and the first correct prediction by Pete Torrey since . . . heaven only knows! To top off this excitement, senior Claudia Johnson was crowned Queen while the cheering, clapping, and screaming rocked the stadium. She received her crown and bouquet of roses beneath umbrellas, amid tear- disguising rain. Later that evening, 400 turned out for an alumni dance, an attendance record over the previous years. Ashes, a four- piece rock band, brought the dance bugs out of the woodwork, and sweat beads out on the forehead. Anyone will tell you our homecoming was unstoppable and unbeatable. ()ust take a second glance.) 12 Homecoming lle!|!CI iu li iVOue0A! Above: The odds seemingly against him, not to mention the Homestead team, junior Brian Russell makes a dash towards eventual 6-0 victory. Left: " Guide right! " " Guide left! " " It ' s too cold to guide anything! " Elmhurst Marching Trojans march off-field after a pre-game performance. Homecoming 13 Right: The finished )ack-in-the-Box moves towards the evening ' s festivities as the seniors let out a big sigh of relief. After weeks of paper stuffing and wire twisting, it all paid off when the senior float nabbed first prize. Below: What beauty! What charm! What grace! What is it?? Juniors Barry Cohen, Tod Huntley, and Vance Veale disguised as the Powderpuff cheerleaders, of course. f 14 Spirit Week Syei f nil f i Balloon? Bottom: Balloons never had it so good as they did on Balloon Day during Spirit Week! Seniors Pam Belcher and Beatrice Malone flash smiles and tote helium on a string. Below: The Spanish class hosts Seizor Bruce Marks and Sei orita Liz Macias under a crepe paper arch and behind a guitar also done in tissue. Below: With senior |an Farriss in the foreground and senior Kent Keuneke looking on, senior Allen Shaw adds a few last-minute touch-ups to the senior float, a common pastime of all the float builders. «sasa •7 " " S ■ SBB ■» • • I 1 ' V - » " Hey! Breathe this in! . . . Now talk. " And a munchkin voice fronn a six-foot athlete will bring roaring laughter every time. People were parading down the halls with helium balloons tied to their wrists, and pencils floated in classes as those bouncing, bobbing spheres created a circus-like atmosphere. The first day of Spirit Week was, you guessed it. Balloon Day! Then came Sucker Day which not only referred to buying suckers and daring to eat them in class, but also to students who had one too many and whose stomachs let them know it! Wednesday was Bicentennial Day which brought out senior )ay Fox ' s stars and stripes pants and senior Larry Raber ' s Benjamin Franklin outfit. If anyone had visited Elmhurst, Thursday would have made the best impression. Dress-up Day was a real shocker to people who didn ' t know what was going on. Anything from top hats and tuxedos to chiffon formals was walking down the halls. Friday brought a complete reversal. You ' d think kids had just been out washing their cars! Shirts had seven armholes, pants were " held " together with patches, and sweat shirts with paint spots made their biggest showing. Dress-down Day, of course. What a crazy week. But, come to think of it, it ' s not a whole lot different from any other week! Spirit Week 15 Miss Skillon, in one of her " finer " moments, expresses her anger to the loops after learning about Penelope ' s behavior in town. (She waved and " YooHooed " to a passing soldier!) Right: The Reverend Humphrey cowers on the sofa. Ifs amazing how a little spray paint and old clothes can age a guy more than 50 years! The cast was as follows: Ida (Maid), Leslie Collier . . . Miss Skillon, Melissa Hunter . . . Lionel (Rev. Toop), John Silletto Penelope (Mrs. Toop), Nancy Beadie . . . Corporal Winton (Clive), Tom Young . . . Bishop of Lax (Penelope ' s uncle), Allen Shaw . . . Russian Spy, Larry Daugherty . . . Rev. Humphrey Geoff Sills . . . Sergeant Towers, Matt Tyler . . . Student Director Sarah Stewart . . . Stage Manager, Pat Koehl Below: At the peak of excitement. Sergeant Towers holds the Russian spy at gun point while Mrs. Toop and the Bishop run for cover. " Oh, eesn ' t she owful! " Ida, the cockney maid, wrinkles her eyes, scrunches up her nose and yells at the audience over Mrs. loop ' s off-key singing. So the play " See How they Run " opens. As the title implies, people do a lot of running but that was not the sole cause of laughter. A reverend clad in underwear, holding a fire poker and chasing a red-headed Russian spy, was part of it. And the sight of a snippy old grouch of a lady, too drunk to stand up without her legs giving way! Mr. Humphrey (such a sweet old man) sat trembling inside his red and white scarf and nearly had a heart failure when Miss Skillon surprised him by tumbling out of the closet. Mrs. Toop and her old friend Clive started out dear friends a.id end Act I in a knock-down, drag-out fight! To add to the confusion, suddenly four people claim to be Reverend Toop, ruffling the feathers of Sergeant Towers, an English cop! Wednesday evenings, senior Sarah Stewart became student director and helped to coordinate the players ' feet and minds and polish up the final product. Their usual 6-10 p.m. rehearsal, required by their directors, Mr. Don Goss and Mrs. Shelley Wellington, got the play ready for the big performances on November 7, 8, 14, and 15. See How Thei| Run Above: A conglomeration of expressions marks the faces of three reverends and Mrs. Toop. Yes, it ' s that Russian spy with a gun pointed at Mrs. Toop, unknown to Clive and timid Mr. Humphrey. Left: " Do you know who I am? " Corporal Clive mischievously asks Ida. " I ' m Eisenhower. " She gasps with wide open mouth. With Mrs. Toop out of the room, Ida tries her luck with the handsome visitor. Mr. Toop (opposite page) sits on the edge of his chair, listening to Mrs. Toop ' s explanation of the confusion while Miss Skillon teeters around, still quite intoxicated. To the left, the Bishop of Lax. School Play 17 One III the fringe benefits of being an assistant to a veterinarian is the daily care and treatment of puppies. Senior Tammy Hughes administers a dose of medicine as Blackie looks on. The not-so-fun side of her work at Anthony Animal Clinic involves washing surgical instruments, mopping tloors, and cleaning cages. Neither rain nor sleet nor snow ... A carry-out boy goes through a lot to earn a day ' s wages, junior Bob Stanley, who puts in an average of 25 hours a week, sacks groceries at Rogers Market. And the Sweat Pours On.. . Senior Linda Bell leaves at 12:00 each day to ear r money at Sears, Roebuck and Co. selling candy. Linda weighs gum drops and measures out sour balls and bag-fulls of M M ' s to cure thousands of sweet tooths. 18 Jobs Village Bowl is where junior Sam Botas spends his Wednesdays and Saturdays. The coke machine empties, Sam fills it. An alley gets stuck, Sam repairs it. Someone needs shoes, Sam has the sizes. It ' s all in the line of duty. Senior Greg Parrish performs one of his many duties at the friendly neighborhood Holiday Inn. Anything from fixing televisions to raising the flag can become a porter ' s responsibility during his 36-hour week. More time clocks were punched by students this year than ever before. Thirty hours of work plus thirty hours of school made for long days and pooped people. Why this obsession for work? It wasn ' t the labor that was extremely inviting (is it ever??); it was the fringe benefits. Up-keep of a car, the most essential and vital part of almost everyone ' s life, took a bigger and bigger chunk out of pockets and a $12.75 allowance didn ' t stretch too far! Extra clothes and college plans were other reasons that students gave up their free time. Dating was a nice habit but a bit difficult without a steady income (or by some miracle, a parent with money to burn!). So the applications went out and the sweat poured on and on and on . . . Wrapping stockboy. cabbages can be fun! |ust ask senior Dave Archer, a Rogers Market He stamps prices, stacks cans, and packages food Jobs 19 Weekends limmie ' s Pizza Inn provides a rootbeer for senior Marl Hershberger. When you just didn ' t know where to go, pizza parlors solved the problem. In between the giggles and the laughs, there ' s also time tor ice cream sundaes and banana boats at Atz ' s Ice Cream Parlor. Junior Susan Taylor and senior Sue Marquis prove just that. Parking lots provide a convenient hang out tor those " in-between- driving-around-town " moments. Juniors Tim Beck and Katy Young, sophomore Dave Frebel, and junior Doug Pelz pull up a car to talk. 20 The Week End Brin Out the Rowdies jKv. i Lunchtime found many students at McDonald ' ;, tor a hamburger, french fries, and a coke, but skipping out on the school lunch was a definite no-no and if you were caught, well . . . you just tried not to get caught! This hang-out also came in handy after baseball games as is the case with these seniors. Left to right are Debbie Redman, Pat York, Matt Gary, and Julie Ross. The week end has transformed more decent students into crazed loonies than the movie The Exorcist! The promise of extra sleep and relaxing hours seemed to be the reason, but after a couple of Friday and Saturday nights, the cause for celebration became quite clear. Week ends were for rowdies. After thirty hours of school, you had to release your pent up energy somehow, somewhere! So after a It could be Baretta, Starsky and Hutch, or Welcome Back, Kotter, but whatever the show is, seniors )im Yarbrough and Claudia lohnson are obviously wrapped up in it. Many couples spent weekend nights in front of the tube watching their favorite shows. game, out on a date, or just bumming around with the gang, where did all the people disappear to? The results from a friendly neighborhood poll showed parties as the most popular place and pizza parlors were a close second. Movies were top of the " Where do you go on a date " list, while cruising around town also chalked up quite a lot of votes. The Week end 21 The painters pants new look and low price appeals Both guys and girls wear Earth Shoes, bought immediately to both sexes. Senior Bill McCombs strictly for comfort. Their lowered heel gave your approves their practicality, walk a rocking motion. A long skirt paired with camel-colored sandals makes the outfit on sophomore Priscilla Watson. What ' s your mood? Check your Mood Ring! Although few take them seriously, they are fun to have and sell like wild fire. Heels? Platforms? Flats? Styles let you pick and choose instead of restricting you to either breaking your ankles or appearing 4 ' 9 " tall! Earth Shoes? Mood Rinsis? Varying clothi ng styles from year to year are nothing new. Designs change with the time and what used to be " in " is soon old-fashioned. But clothes took an unusually big turn this year as comfort became the number one concern and femininity made a comeback. The evidence was seen in the halls on practically all students. Skirts changed from short, shorter, shortest, to below the knee, and tee shirts were a big hit along with boys ' tennis shoes for girls. and girls ' necklaces for boys! Jeans, a teenager ' s best friend, still looked faded and worn, but switched from bell- bottoms to high-waists. Of course, not everyone had the money to buy a whole new wardrobe, but most were able to stick to the few unspoken guidelines. For example, if your jeans were a couple of inches off the tops of your shoes, you might have been accused of waiting for a flood! If you chose to wear knee socks instead of hose with a dress, you might have felt a bit out of place. And if good shoes were a must, you had to make sure that they weren ' t wingtips, a flat- heeled shoe with a pointed toe, the complete opposite of the fashionable style. Despite the fashion changes, this year provided the most free and unlimited styles that left you your individuality, and also a little bit of cash for Saturday nights! More and more girls came to school with legs " Fashion models " from left to right are |unior Ann bared in the longer length skirts and dresses, glad Oswalt, senior Diane Lupke, and junior Kellie to be rid of the more confining short, length. Slate. Woody Herman and his Thundering Herd thrill the crowd. WccdyHernian Cap Woody Herman, backed by two tenors, turns a solo into a three-way flurry of notes at the Saturday night performance. A record crowd of 3000 was there to hear the king of )azz and his Thundering Herd. Woody, at age 62, proved his ability to turn on the kids of the kids he turned on 30 years ago. His mouth dropped open and he looked at senior Tom Young in disbelief when the surprise presentation was made Friday night. " The Crinch spOKe to me last night and said give the man what he deserves, " Tom went on to say. The jazz band gave Randy and Nora Brugh roses, a certificate and a plaque, which they happily admire. 24 )azz Festival Cr€v, fi " What are we gonna do tonight that starts with a C, end ' with a K, and two O ' s in between? " senior Kent Kelsey asks of senior Bill Moring before the curtain goes up. tivates lust checking that note once more is senior |im Yarbrough on tenor sax. Seniors Kim Markey, trombone, and Kent Caskill, trumpet, contribute to the powerful brass section. The Seventh Annual Jazz Festival on April 9 and 10 brought big band leader Woody Herman to the stage and turned a normal audience into a vibrating, pulsating crowd of jazzers! Their hard- driving, hard-swinging style forced listeners to participate whether by snapping their fingers, clapping, or cheering. Any spectator saw the excitement of college night, the drama of the high school day competition, and the power of the 3:00 jazz band acting as host. But very few looked behind the scenes. If they had, they would have witnessed the most organized madhouse arou nd. At least two months before the big weekend, wheels started turning inside " J.R. ' s " (Mr. Randy Brugh ' s) head and the contract went out to a big band. The posters were designed and printed up. That job required two days of choking on paint fumes and silk screening the 750 posters. Flyers, flyers, and more flyers along with the posters descended upon Fort Wayne as Woody Herman gained publicity. But the work was not over. Letters went out to practically every person under the sun, or so it seemed to the stuffers, addressers, sealers, and stampers. The constant flow of ticket orders and money had to be watched like a hawk to avoid mix-ups. And it was quite easy to get confused with nine different types of tickets. That phone never stopped ringing. " Elmhurst Jazz Festival office, may I help you? " Senior Diane Lupke lived and breathed those words as the office became her home away from home. Emcee senior Claudia Johnson had lines to memorize, procedures to learn, names to pronounce, and a thumping heart to try and control. Needless to say, all this hassle turned Mr. Brugh ' s hair a little gray. So in appreciation for his sacrifices, the jazz band awarded him and his wife, Nora, a certificate, a dozen roses, and a plaque which read, " Randy Brugh— We respect your knowledge, we appreciate the sacrifices you ' ve made, but most of all, we cherish your friendship— The Jazz Band, 1976. " Jazz Festival 25 will Iris and young Doctor Young ever get to the prom? Tune in tomorrow tor the continuing story of Midnight Rainbows, Midnight Rainbows " . It wasn ' t unusual to hear this over the speaker to publicize the junior-senior prom. Evidently all that talking worked as the Baer Field Hilton hosted over 220 people. Prince Charmings and Cinderellas danced to the I. BranamTrio as the big event of the evening, the crowning of the queen, approached. After a great deal of nervousness, junior class president Tim Lends A little soft music, dark lights, and a guy named Bill Henning put senior Pat York in heaven. Despite the weatherman ' s warnings of thunderstorms, the evening remained dry as seniors Stan Sorgen and Marti Cross battle the wind. Lee crowned Ann Oswalt queen for an evening of dancing and more dancing. Before you knew it, the band was going thirough ttie old " hope you had a nice time, sure enjoyed playing for you " routine. One hour and 60 people later, Coeglein ' s Barn was filled with the sounds of square dancing and dos-a-dos until 3 a.m. Then it was on to a breakfast or home to sleep. Well, whether you welcomed the Sunday morn, or pooped out after the After-Prom, or caught the flu and made it to bed at 12;(X), the entire evening proved to be a most successful prom as 220 people will gladly testify! a Tcucti €f Class T ' m Every classy affair must have punch bowl attendants! Sophomore Sylvia Perez serves juniors Lori McCleneghen and Nelson Almond. The salad bowls are almost empty, promising swiss steak to come! Seven o ' clock found over sixty couples filling the banquet tables and enjoying a before-dance dinner. The girl with a beaming face and a crown is junior Ann Oswalt, 1976 Prom Queen. Surrounding the queen are escort senior Doug Munk and the prom court. Senior Carol Quance and Mark Proper take advantage of a slow number for a rest between the more tiring fast dances. Woisy Assemblies Singing and playing their hearts out, the Hearnes recruit Campus Life members. They look like Arabs, don ' t they? Free Fair, a four piece rock group, combines skits, songs, and towels? for an entertaining show. Senior Tim Chaney receives a round of applause after a note of appreciation from Coach Tom Herman. Tim tore a ligament the day before the football jamboree and remained in a cast throughout the entire season. A General Motors demonstration shows the use of air for transportation. Senior Melissa Hunter pulls Mr. Klipenstine across the floor with the greatest of ease. With a toss of the wrist, basketball trick shooter Mr. Helzel attempts a basket on his knees. Seniors Lance Huttsell and Mike Benson stana ready to rebound. 28 Assemblies Quiei . iAf KNTHOOD tkoJaH It was the week before Christmas vacation and the student body was audience to the music department ' s annual Christmas program. Although they performed quite well, the low roar from the crowd prevented most of the entertainment from reaching you unless you could read the choir ' s lips or detect violin fingerings. By contrast, an average pep session before a basketball or football game would find the cheerleaders in the performance ring while muted fans kept their school spirit to themselves. Such rude audience conduct during assemblies and non-participation at pep sessions drew sharp criticism and threatened to end future programs. T But before you shake your head and " tsk tsk tsk, " there are X two sides to every coin. Several assemblies demanded a rather long attention span as in the case of an old man who specialized in basketball trick shots. Despite the fact he held a dear place in the hearts of many, the student body grew obviously restless after 15 minutes of one-hand- behind-the-back shots and drop kicks averaging one basket per 16 tries. Pep sessions were quiet for several reasons. Complicated cheers often left the crowd speechless and team losing streaks also lowered spirits. The biggest difficulty pep sessions had to overcome was the feeling that yelling out cheers was definitely considered " not cool. " However, despite a few rotten apples, the whole barrel was not a waste of time. Several assemblies and pep sessions went over favorably and provided that welcome change of pace. General Motors gave an interesting scientific demonstration with gyroscopes and explosions. Free Fair, a four-piece rock band, even received an encore from people who were " getting into the music " and performed in concert later that weel . Outstanding pep sessions featured kisses from moms of varsity basketball players, a human pyramid, and Priscilla, an eight-legged, sheet-covered creature that " took a leak " on a Wayne High School General. But nothing topped the main attraction, the student body yelling " Gimme a red, red, red ... " Pep band member senior Geoff Sills does a little boasting. Although it didn ' t exactly cheer the team on towards victory, it got a lot of laughs! Above: Guitarist for the Free Fair en- tertains students. Assemblies 29 me?l Got That AlUARD?! Right: The title " band clown " has its advantages as senior Tom Young plays the lead role in the senior class band skit. Tom, portraying Band Director Randy Brugh, is being fed coffee intravenously to curb a caffeine fit. The choir combined their talents too, and presented an average day with Mr. Al Schmutz complete with screaming, off-key solos, and garbled lyrics. 30 Awards w ' tgjJW, ' il The end of the year brought many things . . . burned algebra books, clean lockers, and tearful goodbye hugs. But one thing it did not bring was one free evening for the solid month of May.

Students Test Wings With the close of the sophomore year comes the end of the average run-of- the-mill English classes. After ten years of formal classes in spelling, capitalization, and sentence structure, students are finally allowed to test their ability. The year proved them able, strong, and willing. Whether it be pantomiming a play or researching a Nobel Prize author, it was completed with more zeal than usual. Maybe it was a skit where a strong character died in the end or a ' To Tell the Truth ' panel. Oh, it was a lot of work (like theme papers in advanced composition), but so different. The children ' s literature class sent people to elementary schools to read and discuss stories with younger children. Yet the sophomore English, dull as it sounds, had its fun times, too. Besides, without that correct usage of verbs or the ability to write effectively, phase electives would never have been successful.

A year well wotlh remembering. The Bicentennial brought much recognition and many extra activities to the areas of government and history. Parades, special television programs, assemblies, and local mock legislatures all displayed the pride and spirit of the people. All across America, people were celebrating two hundred years of freedom. Some students got into the act by presenting slide shows or participating in model legislatures in Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. A Bicentennial assembly found students considering the foreign influences which have helped to shape America. Bulletin boards and display cases depicted everything from pioneers traveling westward to the Russian- American space link-up that occurred during the summer. The February PTA meeting saw students and faculty alike performing Bicentennial skits. Also, true to form, Mr. Nick Werling ' s U.S. history classes got an extra dose of pro- Americanism as Mr. Werling lectured freely on America ' s virtues . . . and not her defects! - 40 Social Studies IRTHD junior Steve Duray speaks on German influence in America cJuring the Bicentennial student assembly.

From French and Spanish cultural days at the Embassy to presenting skits for the foreign language Christmas party. From no Latin class to a newly reinstated one. From lesser to greater skill in conversation. From the beginning to the end, the foreign languages classes progressed in various ways throughout the year. There were the usual dialogues, skits presented in class, and labs for pronunciation. But there were those extra times. Dining at Cafe Johnell, for instance. Constructing the Spanish float or preparing a fabulous French dinner. Playing baseball, independent study, bingo, German dancing, Mr. Rothe and his accordion, all of these things!

From September to May the choirs spent hours during and after school practicing tone quality, " round sounds, " preciseness, and blending. They gave concerts for churches, student assemblies, sang for the Christ Child Festival, and for the Bicentennial program.

Artists in Their Own Right Unsung Heroes Keep Things Jumpin ' As Orchestra Performs People always wonder what keeps the school play running smoothly. Who makes all those props and constructs the scenery? Who runs the lighting for that orchestra concert or created the unusual backdrops for assemblies? Just who are these unsung heroes who design and construct plus figure out the technical or electrical aspects of a performance? Most of them are stagecraft class members but photography students also help out. This year, on top of experimenting with double exposure, shadow, and cloud shots, the photographers found time to help stagecraft members assemble a slide show. The show depicted the invasion of Czechoslovakia by Russia in 1968. The concert band played " Music for Prague: 1968 " as an accompaniment to it in a darkened gym at the Winter Concert. Stagecraft also constructed props for Plymouth Church ' s Boar ' s Head Festival in December. Members made their own movies and designed the backgrounds for the musical concerts. The orchestra, with the aid of the unsung heroes, gave smooth performances all year. They also went to band camp in Kentucky for the first time. They participated in NISBOVA contests and several of the strings played with the jazz band during the Jazz Festival. Senior Tim Chaney experiments with double exposure as a photography project.

How much of their exquisite work is exhibited? Yet think of the infinite creativity needed, the tireless devotion, . . . and the sparse recognition. The average student couldn ' t begin to turn out the perfection that these people do. The cafeteria, one of many projects, was decorated in felt window hangings for Christmas.

Now the time has come when men have stepped into a woman ' s world. Home economics is certainly no exception. Male students tested their skill this year— in the kitchen. True, they had their trials and hardships. Sometimes their milk would boil over or they would forget to pre-heat the oven. They didn ' t know what a spatula was or what creaming meant, at first. Or they ' d put baking soda instead of baking powder in a certain recipe. But all in all, they learned the basics of cookery and came out with many successful dishes. Most guys felt learning how to cook was essential since a bachelor has to cook for himself. But they also thought it was fun! Senior Raymond Walker tests the skillet before Irving.

Home Economics 53 Preparing for the Future . { Industrial Arts Allow Imaginations to Soar TRUE OR FALSE? Q. Art classes are the only creative classes offered at Elmhurst. A. True! WRONG!!!! As a matter of fact there are three other classes in particular that provide channels for students to extend and express ability to create and design. Industrial Arts (metals, woods, and drafting) allowed students to use tools and machines as keys to creativity rather than paintbrushes or pencils. It challenged them lo be precise and unerring since building a project required exact measurements. Pupils could learn the basics of designing a house (perhaps their own someday) in drafting. Lamps, candlesticks, and cabinets were turned out in metals classes. Chairs, desks, and elaborate shelves were some of the many woods projects completed. Q. Industrial arts allowed students the freedom to let their imaginations soar. A. True!!

My adding machine bit me! . . . How do you figure out this percentage! ... Did you see that guy run that red light? Let ' s nab ' im! These were just a few of the words uttered by business students as they made their way through a year full of figures and paperwork. Most students who wished to find work in a business firm or aimed for an office career found classes like accounting, recordkeeping, and data processing very helpful. But not all learning took place in the classroom. Field trips broke up the year for many of the classes. The business law members even rode with Fort Wayne police on actual runs for a day! The students experimented with the speed gun and chased traffic violators. The experience might become annual, but as it stands, the danger of such an outing outweighs its good points. Senior Beatrice Malone " swears in " junior Bill Mudracl during a mocl murder trial as the judge (Mrs. Sharon Banks) looks on. Sophomore Keith Lahr uses an adding machine in recordkeeping to insure correct figuring. Junior Angie Hayden corrects an error in her typing. Typing as quickly as possible without making any mistakes is one goal students work oward. Students who aim for careers as secretaries or office workers usually take shorthand a ' part of their training Mr. Larry Civens, from Horace Mann Insurance Company, talks about premiums to the business law class. Preparing for the Future They Learn and Earn They studied U.S. history in the morning and built houses in the afternoon. They worked math problems in the afternoon and worked on cars at Ft. Wayne Dodge in the morning. Some carried on mock trials n government during the morning only to delve into food service later during the day. Sounds like a pretty strange schedule for high school students. Those who enrolled at the Regional Vocational Center found the experiences proved fruitful in preparing for careers later in life. RVC students who signed up for the Co-Op Program were placed in the community doings jobs they were specially trained for. Many had jobs already lined up in their field of work for after graduation. It gave them a chance to try what they really wanted to do and make money at the same time. Some students enrolled at RVC only to attend classes for a half-day. Some of the classes offered were automation, food service, construction, child care, and data processing. There were contests in the various departments for awards throughout the year. RVC gave many kids a chance to shine in something worthwhile where before they hung back. (Besides, working at what one likes best sure beats sitting in school all day!)

DULL!! Perhaps so, but Library, Study Hall Prove Necessary When someone mentions the media center or study Hall most students ' first reaction is " yuk! " Study hall was considered a time to catch up on some sleep. In reality, it came in quite handy, especially for the super-busy people. Students actively involved outside of school or in extra- curricular events found that extra 55 minutes a life-saver. It allowed them to finish up work that they were previously unable to complete. The media center had a tough year. Ten percent of the book collection had been stolen over the past year and so needed to be replaced. The money for new visual and audio equipment had to go toward replenishing it. An FWCS budget cutback limited the amount of new materials that could be bought. The center even fell behind lower schools ' standards as far as sources available were concerned. The opportunity room moved into the new area formerly occupied by rooms 130 and 132. It shared the area with special ed and the reading labs. This student exemplifies a typical pastime in the media center. Sleeping was quite a problem which resulted in the removal of the bean bag chairs.

Key injuries to seniors Cordon Murphy, Jeff Heller, and Mike Mullen hurt the team early in the season. The most crucial injury to the Trojans was suffered before the season began by senior Tim Chaney during pre- season football practice. Tim ' s knee injury did not keep him from helping the team as he was elected a coach along with head coach Tom Herman and his assistant coaches )im Welborn, Jim Lambert, and Al Burns. Elmhurst holds the distinction of scoring the most points against a Bishop Luers football team by a public high school.

Reserves Endure Long Season The reserve team survived a long season as they finished with a 1-8 record. The only win came against the Homestead Spartans by a score of 17-0. Inexperience was one of the major weaknesses of the team. But Coach Jim Lambert pointed out, " Even though the team record did not show a good season, the players possessed pride, hustle, and desire in all practices. The hard work on the practice field, along with the sacrifices the players make, will go a long way in helping them on the varsity level. " Coach Lambert cited juniors Mike Brewer, Phil Jacobs, Pat Payton, and sophomore Jim Almond as players that contributed greatly to the offensive team, while sophomores Kevin Shelley, Matt Branning, Dan Jehl, and junior Dave Moore held the defensive team together. Although the reserve football team record was not impressive, the results of this year ' s team may be measured by the success of next year ' s varsity squad.

The girls also came in on Saturday mornings at 8 a.m. and worked until 10. The team ' s uniforms were completed this year with new warm-ups and slippers.

Mr. Horn also devoted his time in the winter months to assisting as wrestling coach. There are tew instances In life when a group of individuals can get together and become a team. There are even fewer men and women who want to organize and devote their time to a team. Coaching takes a lot from a person. A coach becomes a father or mother to the team members, who in turn become a family. There is very little monetary gain, but what a coach does gain is the respect of the team and self pride in knowing that not just anybody can cut the mustard as a coach. Knowledge of the game, hard work, devotion, and belief in the young players to do the job, all come under the heading of coaching. Coaches are building character in the young men and women of tomorrow. Sure, a coach stresses winning. But why play the game if you don ' t want to win? Coaches are human; they realize that winning can ' t always be achieved, and they take their losses in stride. Because it ' s human nature to let down once you ' ve reached the top, coaches stress the importance of never being satisfied with one ' s performance as an individual. You can be happy, but once you are satisfied you can never improve yourself. The coaches at Elmhurst lived up to this ideal and shining examples of their work could be seen in the many fine athletes of the ' 75- ' 76 seasons. Coaches ' faces run the gamut of emotion. Head basketball coach Kenny Eytcheson ' s face reflects instruction, anger, suspense, and joy. Fowlkes Wins Blanket This year ' s Athletic Banquet was emceed by Channel 21 sportscaster Tom Campbell.

From a broken arm to a sprained neck, injuries kept the fans guessing as to who would be missing the next game. Suffering at one time or another from a sprained ankle were sophomore Kari Rietdorf and juniors Anita Boyer and |an Dowling. Two of the most serious injuries happened to juniors Karyn Heiney and Robin Browning. Karyn sprained her neck and broke her finger in a fall during gymnastics practice. The worst fall of all the accidents that plagued the cheerleaders was when Robin Browning hit the hardwood during the reserve game at Dwenger. The result was a broken arm and a four- day stay in the hospital.

Cheerleaders 115 Go, You Chicken Fat, Go! when was the last time you heard that phrase in gym class, " Go, you chicken fat, go? " High school physical education classes are much more diversified than those on the grade school level. Tennis courts, weightlifting machines, and gymnastics equipment all made gym classes more interesting and enjoyable. A lack of space made an intramural program impossible in the past. But instances such as changing an old locker room into a weight room eased some of the strain. By providing a variety of activities and different classes, the physical education department did a fine job of mee ting the needs of the student body.

Keeping with the tradition started last year, the Student Council held the Second Annual Penny Arcade and to keep the spirit going during Homecoming, a dance was held after the game which proved to be one of the most successful dances ever held at Elmhurst. Student Council members also acted as guides at back-to-school night, and the Council sponsored the after-prom on May 15.

Student Council 121 Donkey Basketball Game Highlights AFS Year Working to raise money for the exchange students was the main purpose of AFS (American Field Service). Each year AFS sponsors an exchange program which has a student from Elmhurst being sent abroad and a student from abroad being brought here. This year the exchange student was Maria Elena Argiiello from Costa Rica while senior Matt Gary was chosen to be next year ' s exchange student. The main money-making project this year was the Donkey Basketball Game which had the faculty playing the students in basketball while riding some of the stubbornest donkeys around. Other projects consisted of paper drives, car washes, and a membership drive at the beginning of the year. Representing Elmhurst in exchange programs for the coming summer anci next fall are junior Vance Veale and senior Matt Gary, AFS president. Demonstrating his skill as a basketball player, senior Phil Cutman attempts a shot during the Donkey Basketball Came. Working on the AFS Homecoming float, a few members try to ready the balloon for the parade. Unfortunately, due to the bad weather and wind, they couldn ' t get it off the ground successfully.

The group was called Campus Life. Campus Life wasn ' t tied to any religious organization but was rather a group that had a lot of fun projects and took time for members to find out about themselves and the people around them. One of the activities that was sponsored by Campus Life was an assembly that featured Lindy Hearne and his wife Linda, singing a variety of songs that he composed. That same night, there was a Burger Bash where people were served all the hamburgers they could eat for one dollar. The Awaiting the crowning ceremonies, the Homecoming court is l ept dry bv their Lettermen ' Club escorts. " You take her, I cion ' t want her! " At least that ' s what it looks like as senior Patty York is passed around at one of the Campus Life meetings. average was about six hamburgers per person, but there were the brave ones who tried for ten or fifteen and even one who set the record by eating thirty-one. The meetings were held at members ' homes and usually started out with a game such as the electric chair, toboggan races on the carpet, or pantomimes of coffee pots, banana splits, flat tires, and other crazy things. Senior Kevin Lee stated, " Campus Life is a fun way to learn about other individuals and how they feel about religion.

To some people nothing, but to others it meant speech meets every Saturday, sometimes as early as six o ' clock in the morning. It all paid off as the speech team placed second in sectionals and fourth in regionals. Taking first in sectionals were juniors Troi Lee in oratorical and Sue Frankewich in girls ' extemp. Placing second were senior Nancy Beadie in poetry and drama, and juniors Karyn Heiney in oratorical. Randy Girod in radio, and Tod Huntley in boys ' extemp.

Every other week, the newspaper staff ran around frantically trying to get the next edition off to the printer on time, and they were usually successful in doing so. With this year ' s newspaper staff being mostly seniors, the paper proved to be very creative and professional-looking. On the other hand of publications, the ANLIBRUM staff consisted almost entirely of underclassmen.

Opportunities and experiences are two important building blocks for excellence within any school curriculum. For students within the music program, both were offered in the form of jazz as three jazz ensembles opened up more of this " culture " to a greater number of students. The bands themselves produced the excellence that often results from such interest, performing in festivals and concerts throughout the year for the enjoyment of many. All bands, including the newly formed third band, gave their members a chance to perform together. The first band, or 3:00 jazz band, was composed of older, more experienced musicians, most of them seniors. Their fDOtential was utilized to the fullest as ihey participated in festival after festival. They performed for the annual IMEA convention in Indianapolis, and a similar one in Illinois. They competed in festivals at Hobart, ISU, Crown Point, Notre Dame, and Ball State. They were also seen at the Seventh Annual E)F, hosting the weekend of jazz. The 2:00 band showed its talent at such festivals as ISU, Notre Dame, and E)F. Future first band members received good opportunities in ensemble and improvisation in this group. The third band played at Elmhurst ' s festival, and at the Elmhurst jazz concert. For the first time, many students received the chance to play in an expanding field of music, jazz.

Then before anyone knew it, the Trojan Singers were not only thinking about going, but were making plans to actually go to countries such as Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The singers ' main purpose of the nine-day trip was to tour and give concerts. While they were in Europe they visited such cities as Frankfurt, Heidelburg, Lucerne and two famous cities, Munich, Germany, and Innsbruck, Austria, which also happened to be the sites of the Olympic games. In order to make the trip, the Trojan Singers earned most of their money by selling jazz festival tickets, singing at banquets, holding paper drives, and working at the Penny Arcade. Throughout the school year, the singers gave concerts at banquets and receptions, and were seen on the Ann Colone Show. In the annual NISBOVA contest held at Snider High School, the swing choir received a first in their division. Slightly worn out after the nine-day tour, senior Tammy Syndram catches a little shut-eye on the plane.

Their time is needed to ease the already over-loaded schedules of teachers and media aides. Projectionists give up their studv hall periods to assist teachers by delivering and running the A-V equipment. Helping the media aides, the media center workers keep the materials arranged, check out books and media, as well as assist students in finding items they need. Books that are checked out must be put back again and sophomore Loretta Clark is doing just that. This is one of many jobs that media center workers perform. Filing book cards is one of the ways that sophomore Debbie Paul assists the media aides.

What is it, you may ask, and who cares? Nobody, right? WRONG! Besides the cheerleaders there was a group of girls at Elmhurst who showed what school spirit was every time they performed. They weren ' t given too much recognition but they were very much appreciated for the work they did. What was this group? The pom-pom squad and twirlers. The girls provided many interesting and impressive pre- game and half-time routines at the basketball games such as " Pick Up the Pieces, " " Spirit of America, " and at football games with the marching band.

School spirit is what helps the teams do their best jobs and can really make a person feel a part of the school. Booster clubs provide an easy and enjoyable way for members to back their favorite teams. The three main booster clubs-Takedowns, Tracksters, and Diamond Devils-did their part in supporting their teams while the rest of the student body backed football and basketball. There were even students who didn ' t have a club as such, who supported the not-so-popular teams such as tennis, golf, gymnastics, and volleyball.

Senior Picnic time at last! I thought this year would never end . . . Whaddaya say we buy a greased pig and let it loose to liven up the halls?! . . . I can hardly wait to get my suntan started! The year reached its final months and students ' minds began to wander toward the finer things In life (sleep, suntans, and vacations!). Spring vacation came as a welcome break for most, and many counted the days until May 28, the Senior Picnic. With graduation just around the corner, senior-ltis reached Its peak and seemed to spread through the sophomore and junior classes as well. The halls became less crowded as more and more students decided to leave the building early (dismissed or not) to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. Frisbees, basketballs, and tennis racquets appeared out of nowhere, and long pants and heavy shoes gave way to shorts and sandals. Finals came, and the last remaining ounce of energy for studying was put to use to Insure passing grades for the semester. Banquets and receptions were held to honor deserving students In academics, athletics, and extra-curricular activities, and caps and gowns were donned for Commencement, June 3. Some students, glowing with pride, staggered home under their load of trophies and awards, and others breathed a sigh of relief as they realized that their high school days had finally come to an end. 220 The Year Ends .. . 1 .

I just sent in my housing request to Purdue . . . Wonder if I ' ll be able to hack a 9 to 5 job from now on? . . . Maybe if I joined the Air Force I could use my mechanical skills and learn to fly at the same time . . . Should we get married right away or wait awhile to give ourselves time to adjust to life out of school? With Commencement over and the red tassels swaying proudly from rearview mirrors or tacked firmly onto bulletin boards, seniors suddenly realized that high school had ended and the rest of their life was facing them. For some, the part-time jobs now became full-time, promising a steady income to support them as they took their first steps away from the protective shield of home. Others began planning homes of their own as marriage glimmered in the not-too-distant future. The military appealed to some seniors who wanted to earn while they learned new skills. Technical schools proved equally popular with their two- and three-year training programs and the promise of high-paying jobs after graduation. With the number attending college on the upswing, a third of the seniors made the decision to take their education all the way and sweat it out through four more years of school. In-state colleges and universities were the most popular money-wise, with I.U. and Purdue topping the list. Others ventured out of state with the help of scholarships, hoping to benefit as much from their new environment as from their studies. And Life Begins 223 ThciAk ! Where are the orange croppers? Don ' t tell me they broke again! . . . Has anybody seen my gymnastics layout? It was here a minute ago . . . Put that radio back in the dark room or I won ' t print your pictures for you! . . . Aw, come on, I ' m only two weeks behind on my deadlines. Just wait ' til next week and I ' ll be all caught up. Despite the chaos which reigned in the journalism room each afternoon from 12:30 to 1:30, the pictures were printed, the spreads were completed, and the deadlines were met for the 76 ANLIBRUM. It could never have been accomplished without the dedication of our hardworking staffers who came in weekends and after school, the willingness of our photographers who hauled cameras everywhere for candids, and the devotion of our advisor, Mrs. Jane Hoylman, who had a ready solution to all of our problems. My thanks to Mr. Dick Ware of Root Photographers, who supplied us with great pictures of all our big events during the year, especially those he managed to get of our rain-soaked Homecoming. Thanks ».for eYori|lhifl9 And a special thanks to our representative from Herff Jones Yearbooks, Mr. Tom Jerles, who was always ready to replenish our dwindling supply of grease pencils which were constantly being devoured by hungry staffers. Thinking back on all the hurried deadlines and hastily typed copy, i sometimes wonder how we ever managed to get it all done. But one thing I do know-it ' s a great book and I ' ll always be proud of it. Thanks for everything!
