On a rainy morning at Friendship Farms, junior Jeri Yarbrough sleepily awaits the first practice of the day. - Table of Contents Just the thought of going back to school was enough to drive some kids crazy, but while looking over their sum- mer, other students gladly welcomed the new school year. It was the end of work- ing from morning to night, band camp, journalism workshops, and football prac- tices that lasted all day. When the first day of school arrived, everyone was a little unsure of what to expect. They had to walk around bulldoz- ers and tractors, past what seemed to be millions of construction workers, and then journey through the dust-filled halls to their classes. It seemed that even for those who wer- en ' t ready for school to start again, beginning a new year was a pleasant change of pace. Seeing how the school had grown and renewing old friendships made the first few days of school pass quickly. Looking back at all the years at Elm- hurst is nice, but you can ' t stay here for- ever. You have to be able to look ahead and see what the future holds for you. It is important to look toward new horizons. Looking Toward New Horizons After a grueling race at Swinney Park, members of the cross country team get together to rest and talk with Coach Carter Lohr and a spectator. 202390:4 Preregistration provides a time to renew old friendships.

Table of Contents — 3 The new Fort was built in 1 976, as part of the bicentennial celebration, to commemorate Anthony Wayne ' s fort. In memory of Anthony Wayne, his statue stands in Freimann Square. Housing various plays throughout the year, the Performing Arts Center is on the corner of Main and Barr streets. Pizza Hut is a common meeting place for EHS students. 4 — Pieces to Go Employees at McDonald ' s take a short break during a busy day. McDonald ' s at Time Corners opened for business March 1 , 1 978. Places to Go, " " " People to Meet, Things to Do " What do ya wanna do? " " Well, we could go to the play that Lise Duemling and Jim Nelson are in ... I think it ' s called ' The Lark ' . " " Have you checked out the Fort yet? " " Personally, your basic Pizza Hut is fine with me. " " But I wanna go see what ' s happening at the new McDonald ' s. " " Let ' s just go home. ' Wild Wild West ' is on channel 55. " " The Komets beat Muskegon! " Even though Fort Wayne was categor- ized as BORING, most kids had plenty of places to go, people to meet, and things to do. Whether it was the routine game and pizza, or an elegant Moonraker and the play, there was a lot of activity in and around Fort Wayne. Downtown Fort Wayne combines modern buildings with rustic ones. Penguin Point wishes senior Matt Branning good luck in his upcoming state wrestling meet. WOO LUCK MATT UAIWttli Franke Park presents " Christmas at the Zoo.

" " I think I ' m going to take the train to Chicago and do some shopping. " " I ' m just goifig to stick around here and work on my car. " When the same old everyday routine seemed to be a drag, some students found an outlet. For some cruising around Fort Wayne was enough, while others enjoyed a trip to Michigan or Ohio every once in a while. Trips to Florida and out West were not an everyday occur- rence, but when vacations rolled around kids took off in all directions. Some people flew, while others either rode or drove. Whatever method they chose — the mode of transportation was there. Not all trains tiave to lead out of the city. The ■choo-choo " at Franke Park Children ' s Zoo pro- vides an outlet for those who enjoy sitting back and relaxing while viewing the wilderness around them. Ifl , ' .-. ■or those wanting adventure, a plane offers the jllimate opportunity.

Juniors Susan Hobbs and Carolyn Denney prepare for a practice session during band camp at Friend- ship Farms. Enjoying the summer sun, senior Jeff Peterson skateboards at Franke Park. Junior Jeff Fike gets shaving cream smeared all over his chest and face by senior Sue Smith and junior Galen Bailey. Brain Relief Summer gave almost everyone a chance to get away from the brain-drain- ing effects of school and to have fun. Kids enjoyed everything from skate- boarding and baseball to fireworks and flowers. There were trips to the pool, the lake. Cedar Point, band camp, and even Europe! While kids grew and had fun, Elmhurst itself was also growing. Though not com- pleted for the beginning of the school year, the new gym, auditorium, and vari- ous classrooms were taking shape. Elm- hurst, as well as its inhabitants, was expanded and revived in order to get ready for a new year. Seniors Kim Burry, Nancy VanGheluwe, and Kathy Murray get ready to munch on some " Burry Super Burgers. " Senior football players are recognized during the Homecoming pep session. Seniors Steve Thompson, Matt Branning, and Dave Murray enjoy themselves at the powderpuff football game. Hoping their float will end up the best, juniors Mike Hoilowell, Diana Stein, and Tim Lankenau work on the junior class float. Between volleys, junior Ann Arend enjoys her job as line judge. Adding her voice to the Penny Arcade, junior Vicki Barber attracts an audience in the band ' s " Little Bit of Vegas. " From Night .

A detour sign stands in the hallway during the summer remodeling. ■ — X uite a change took place in Elmhurst from the last weeks of August to IP I the first week of September. During the summer, construction of the new building continued with slight adjustments and mass clean- ing done In the old part. As a result, the building resembled lit- tle more than a junk pile, but it gradually transformed into a school ready for Its 1,233 inhabitants. Sparkling clean lockers were filled with junk while books received new owners. Silent halls which once served as storage space for desks, chairs, and cabinets now sounded of footsteps, whis- pers, and parts of teachers ' lectures. As usual, sophomores suffered the experi- ences of trying to find their way around. Upper- classmen even got a few surprises when they discovered Mr. Storey ' s room had disappeared (Into a chemistry lab) or that the AV room was now the Student Council ' s. Teachers and students alike had to adjust to the parking arrangement, while the workmen got used to the lack of privacy and many onlookers. Yet the school year of 1 977- 1 978 was on Its way to a good start and a promising beginning.

Spirit Week — Hectic, Silly, and Fun [-Kj-w omecoming week was probably the most exciting, hec- -, I tic, silly, and fun week of the whole year. It began Mon- J day, October 10, with " Kickers and Knickers Day, " which sported a weird assortment of shoes and socks. Tues- day, " Stylin ' Day, " Trojans dressed up in the best clothes of the closet. Wednesday brought students wearing red and grey with their favorite hats, and Thursday meant everyone was allowed to munch on suckers all day. After school, the seniors were true to their word by winning the junior-senior powderpuff game, 20-14. Friday was appropriately called " Dress-Down Day " as kids appeared in anything from jeans to long under- wear. The Homecoming rowdiness continued with the annual pep session and parade around the football field. Each class pre- sented its float — the finished product of many long hours of hard work. The senior class constructed a school building which King Kong burst from holding a Spartan prisoner. The juniors created a pedestal and trophy, symbolic of Olympic games. The sophomores also did an excellent job with their float of Snoopy kicking a field goal. Included in the parade were the senior powderpuff and football teams, the Homecoming court, honored guests, and the Grand Marshal, Mr. Stubbs. Afterwards, the cheerleaders led a short pep session which got everyone fired up for the big game that night against Home- stead. Juniors Anne McCleneghen, Jenny Morel, Danette Mazelin, Ann i Marianne Rodriguez, and Chris Hogan enjoy " Sucl;er Day. " 1 4 — Homecoming The senior Homecoming Court of Terri Davis, Sylvia Perez, Kari Rietdorf, Grace Cole, Jana Beauchot and Cheryl Medsker begins ride around the track. Junior powderpuff cheerleaders John Draper, Karl Kline, and Chuck Holt find that mounts aren ' t as easy as they look. With the last touch-ups completed, the sophomore float with Snoopy and Woodstock stands ready to join the parade. Senior Shirley Pine (22) attempts to outrun her opponents as teammates clear the way. Trojans Triumph With a few tears and a great big smile, senior Grace Cole reigns as Homecoming Queen. Sophomore Tammie Waggoner, juniors Lisa Richard, Susan Sheffer, and Karen Young, and seniors Cheryl Medsker and Sylvia Perez along with their escorts await the announcement of the queen. The football ' s loose and it looks like a Homestead player might get it first. 1 6 — Homecoming As evening approaches, seniors Darcy Autenreith and Dave Nelson paint their names on the senior Homecoming sign. in Homecoming The senior class ' s pride and joy — a float that not only survived the parade but won first prize! Senior Bill Stewart (alias King Kong) rises victoriously from the senior float holding a victim Spartan. Friday night, October 14, was just that as the football team beat Home- stead. The game got off to a rather slow start as a Spartan player was injured and the game was delayed until an ambu- lance arrived. This did not dampen the Trojan spirit, however, as EHS led 7-6 at the half and won the game 20-6. During half-time the band performed its eye-dazzling routine followed by the Homecoming ceremony. In a close deci- sion, the seniors were awarded the best class float and AFS, the best club float. Then the lettermen escorted the queen ' s court to the field where last year ' s queen, Kelly Auer, took the honor of crowning Grace Cole Homecoming Queen of 1977- 1978. After a few tears, she happily received a standing ovation as the band played the Alma Mater. After the game, WMEE ' s John David Spangler emceed the annual Homecom- ing dance in the EHS cafeteria. Consist- ing mainly of disco and slow music, it got everybody there to boogie down and have a good time! All in all, it was a great way to end a special week, and a special night. Homecoming — 1 7 And the Show Goes on . V fter late night practices, dress rehearsal, and even a small scenery fire, " Ten Little Indians " was presented by a talented group of Elmhurst actors and actresses. The three-act murder mystery- was written by the renowned Agatha Christie. Its title came from the ten little Indian heads sitting on the mantle and the nurs- ery rhyme hanging above. The rhyme gives a detailed description of how each little Indian met his death. As the play opened, ten guests arrived on a remote island off the coast of Devon, England. While they were getting acquainted with each other an ominous voice informed them that they each had committed a murder. The guests began discussing the identity of the voice and their unusual host when sophomore Tony Esterson choked to death — and one of the little Indian heads fell from the mantle. Soon afterward, seniors Thea Levine and Andrew Conrad were killed, also according to the riddle. Junior Paul Buuck, senior Lise Duemling, senior Bill Stewart, junior Scott Nichols, and senior Steve Esterson soon followed leavmg only junior Diane Munroe and senior John Silletto. Hysteria, suspicion, and distrust grew until finally Diane shot John. Miraculously, Scott came back to life (the red herring murder) and was about to hang Diane when John sat up and killed him. Ending with the famous line, " Thank heavens, women can ' t shoot, " John and Diane embraced as the curtain fell. The suspense, subtle humor, and sur- prise ending made it a great play and worth all the effort as the show went on!

" Sir Lawrence startles Vera Claythorn as he |umps from the couch. A Passage Into the Career World Business classes were considered by some to be just ordinary classes, but to others they were a passage into the career world. Students became acquainted with accounting, typing, shorthand, record keeping, business law, clerical practice, and distributive marketing. Many different techniques were used to teach students skills and responsibili- ties. One such technique entitled Career Education was used by Mrs. Sharon Banks in her recordkeeping classes. Stu- dents were required to complete two career survey tests in order to discover what career best suited them. They were also given the opportunity to interview businessmen about their chosen field. The majority of students were placed on a one-day basis in co-operation with local business firms. The program lasted five weeks and was sponsored by the Junior League. The year was filled with various activi- ties which include former students returning to address the business classes to discuss their experiences in the business world. Field trips were also highlights when classes ventured to such places as the Fort Wayne Newspapers and local business firms. After completing various business courses, many students expressed confi- dence in themselves as qualified workers able to succeed in the business world. Using spare time wisely, junior Faith Reichle prac- tices shorthand. Junior Chris Landrigan works on his tabulation skills. Speaking about her own experiences, graduate Susan Spielman stresses to business students basic principles needed to succeed. Mrs. Jane Hoylman keeps a watchful eye on senior Ken Stebing as he constructs a unique advertising layout in journalism class. As an English project, students work together in groups to obtain creative ideas. Students Overcome Confinement English students may have become bored with the same old routine, but they managed to find some variety within the English department. Sophomores proved to be the most confined in their course selection as they had to cope with spelling, capitalization, and sentence structure. Literature study required students to read such classics as " Our Town, " " Romeo and Juliet, " and " Julius Caesar. " Although Composition I was manda- tory, upperclassmen were given a lot of liberty in choosing their English courses. As an addition to EHS, the honors pro- gram was offered to exceptional pupils as an alternative to the other courses. Senior honor courses included Nobel Prize Authors and Advanced Compos- ition. Junior honor students studied liter- ature, composition, and grammar. Courses included many activities such as performing various skits and acting out plays. To assist students in express- ing their individuality, the creating and reciting of poetry was often presented as class projects. Another course rarely mentioned, jour- nalism, consisted of reporting, writing news briefs, and working with advertis- ing layouts. After completion of this course students were eligible to become members of the Advance or Aniibrum staff. With the English elective system, many students found variety as well as satis- faction in their course selection and com- pletion. Junior Kathy Kuzeff and sophomore Andrea Hollo- well exchange ideas, as well as materials, while working on advertising layouts. Sophomore Rick McCormick brushes up on his grammar while preparing for a test. English — 23 During a special fiesta, visiting sophomores Armando Bareros and Diana Bareros demonstrate a traditional Puerto Rican dance from their country. Second-year French students hold a small group discussion concerning suggestions for a future skit. Junior Tina Travis and seniors Mark Eitman and Shelley Bradtmiller perform a French skit at the annual foreign language Christmas celebration. 24 — Foreign Language Weird Noises Attract Attention While strolling down the language and science wing, it was not uncommon to hear strange noises coming from rooms 253, 255, and 257. No, those noises weren ' t coming from any strange ani- mals, but were the conglomeration of French, German, and Spanish conversa- tions. Verbal expression was a vital element in learning a foreign language. Dia- logues, skits, and filmstrips were pro- vided to aid students in correct pronunci- ation of words and phrases. The most difficult obstacle of foreign language study was the grammar. Stu- dents had to re-learn vowel sounds, the alphabet, spelling, and sentence struc- ture. Many words were similar to English but were pronounced differently. Foreign language courses were not, by all means, totally serious. Students per- formed skits and wrote comical dia- logues for the enjoyment of others. Trips were taken to the Scottish Rite Audito- rium for French and Spanish cultural days, and to ethnic restaurants for din- ner. In addition, at Christmas time, stu- dents prepared and presented a Christ- mas party consisting of foods from other countries, songs, and the breaking of pinatas. Many students benefited immensely from foreign language classes by gaining a better understanding of their country and the many cultures it contains. Senior Sergio Martinez and sophomore Elsa Rodri- guez concentrate on the dance steps ot La Cumbia in the third-year Spanish class. Popcorn was an added refreshment at the Spanish fiesta, as junior Kim Kuzeff carefully prepares another batch. Foreign Language — 25 The Mighty Marching Trojans! " We are the Mighty Marching Tro- jans! " was the familiar chant heard throughout the football season and marching contests. EHS fans came alive when the march- ing Trojans took to thte field. Instead of the traditional trip to the concession stand at half-time, fans remained to wit- ness a group of talented students per- form a show they had worked on all sum- mer long. The members presented a great show, but it required a lot of time, effort, and patience. A week was spent during the summer at Friendship Farms rehearsing music, horn moves, and formations. Besides the week at camp, practices were also held prior to band camp and after school. The band competed in NISBOVA, receiving a 2nd rating; Norwell Invita- tional, placing 4th; and a marching exhibition held at Northrop. All the time and effort seemed worth while when band members heard com- ments stating that they were the best band EHS has had in 1 years. Special recognition was given to Mrs. Karen Roarke, drill team; Miss Evon Schlotter, flag corps; Mr. Earl Jackson, band; and Mr. Jim Swartzlander, drum corps. Sophomore Janet McKay stands at attention, await- ing the starting signal from the director. Senior Dave Murray uses his free time to practice a difficult passage of music.

And the Beat Goes on Students extended their involvement in music by automatically transferring into concert band after thie completion of marching band. Concert band differed from marching band in many ways. The music played by these students was of a more serious and classical type. Also, many members switched instruments after marching band. Concerts were a major interest of the Music Department. Members presented many performances including the Pops, Winter, and Spring Concerts. Students also participated in NISBOVA contests, the I.U. Tri-State Band, All-City Orches- tra, and basketball band. The Marching Trojans perform their half-time show atthe NISBOVA Marching Contest.

Instrumentalists of the Chamber Orchestra devoted much of their time to class rehearsals, individual practices, and private lessons. Students concentrated mainly on classical music and, once in a while, a mellow rock tune. Class time was spent rehearsing for the Christmas, Con- certo, and Spring concerts. Members also formed a string quartet consisting of sophomore Tammie Waggoner and sen- iors Pam Riecke, Judy Goshorn, and Wendy Simerman. Those students competed in the NISBOVA string contest at Bishop Luers, receiving an excellent rating. Competing in the soloist category, Tammie Waggoner also received an excellent rating. Sight reading songs from J. S. Bach Chorales was a daily routine performed by the choir members. They also practiced intonation and the techniques of singing, while rehearsing a variety of music for concert performances which included the Christ Child Festival, Christmas, and Spring concerts. The music department may have lost some of its valuable players and vocalists but there were always recruits waiting for a chance to get into the orchestra or choir to better themselves as future vocalists and musicians. ■■ I B m ■ 8 ' ' B P H m..- . 1 JHL i BBk W M W T vHUFviri m W ' ' SBSmmSlmtM RjL) r im iH 1 m kj y Chamber Orchestra: Front — Tammie Waggoner, Pamela Riecke, Vickie Hamm, Sheila McMillen, Mike Scott, Laura Krieg, Teena Bibbo, Carolyn Den- nie, Marta Slagle, Wendy Simerman, Judy Goshorn.

Social Studies Deepen Thoughts The social studies department pro- vided students with a better understand- ing of people, and the world in which they live — the past, present, and the future. The major subject areas were U.S. history, government, and sociology. U.S. history devoted its time to the past by discussing wars, treaties, and famous people. Films and filmstrips were made available to classes to help stu- dents visualize what supposedly took place. Seniors were required to take one semester each of government and sociol- ogy, or alternate equivalent to sociology, in order to meet specific graduation requirements. Government students dis- cussed current events and became informed of their governmental sur- roundings, and constitutional rights and privileges. Sociology classes dealt mainly with group behavior, culture, and per- sonality. There were many other courses offered but those mentioned above were the major areas of study. Students gained a better understanding of them- selves and their environment. Mr. Nicholas Werling beats on his drum in order to get the full attention of his U.S. history students. Some of Mr. John Coahran ' s U.S. history students listen intently, while others quickly skim over the past reading assignment. c Counselors from the Summit House discuss their past experiences as drug users, and their present positions as counselors, with Mr. Glenn Miller ' s sociology class. Mr. Glenn Miller explains to psychology students the different aspects of personality and how they relate to culture.

The Varsity Foot- ball Family put up a tough fight and played many good games with the hope of keeping the SAC Championship Bell, but failed. The Tro|ans ended the season with a 4 5 record. As the saying goes, " The third time ' s a charm " Well, it seemed that the 1977 year was the first of the three times. With only 10 seniors, and 6 returning from the SAC championship team, it was well evident that the Trojans weren ' t very experienced. Coach Tom Herman knew he had the next two years cut out for him in training the sophor7iores and juniors for the " charm " , . . the third year. Again The last game of the season against Bishop Luers was quite an upset. The Trojans ' hard work and determination paid off as they toppled the Knights 14 even though Luers had been predicted to At the end of the season the Elmhurst Trojans sadly turned the SAC Champion ship Bell over to the Northrop Bruins, who played a victorious game against Luers with a 7 6 win.

" If the whole team would have put out, we would have been the best. " Even though the team might not have worked up to its potential, it did gain a lot of experience. With the majority of the team being sophomores, the next two years will profit from these experiences. Coach Al Burns expresses his thoughts and sug- gestions in the huddle.

Ken Furniss, Dave Springer, Sieve Thompson Back — M dran, Mark Hunter, eU Eaton, Marty Rif Hoilowell, and John Aliekruse The tennis team finished another year with a fine 9-5 record. Things looked good for the Trojans at the start of the season with two returning lettermen and some great experience. This led to a sec- ond straight winning season in a row. The team was led by junior Jeff Eaton followed closely by seniors Marty Rifkin and Steve Thompson, respectively. The first doubles team of senior Matt Vorn- dran and junior John Altekruse had the best win-loss record in the city with a 1 2- 3 tally. Junior Rick Thieme led the sec- ond doubles team with senior Dave Pat- rick and junior Joe Romary alternating for the final position. Unfortunately, the Trojans were out of contention for the SAC title early. First round of the sectionals didn ' t pay off as the Trojans were defeated by Columbia City, Prospects for next year look pretty good with Jeff Eaton, John Altekruse, and Rick Thieme returning to varsity play. Struggling through a tough season, the girls ' volleyball team finished with a record of 5-13 overall, and 3-5 in the SAC. Juniors Jenny Morel and Angle Mas- terson, the only returning lettermen, helped support the varsity squad by applying their volleyball techniques. The squad consisted of five juniors v ith sen- ior Kim Perry filling the other position. Kim attended a summer volleyball camp where she acquired new skills and plays which helped the entire team. Even though the team was young and lacking in experience, it proved that the Trojan squad had a lot of potential by beating Luers, South Side and Concordia in the SAC. Junior Jenny Morel was chosen to rep- resent Elmhurst on the All-SAC team. The SAC coaches voted Jenny to be on the second team. f y r Playing powerfully at the front line, lunior Chris Hogan goes up for another winning spike. Chris was one of the six starters for the varsity squad. During a timeout, Coach Cathy Russell has a chance to point out the weak spots in the reserve squad.

Originality Shines What do you call a group that meets at 7:17 every Thursday night, takes trips to the Smokey Mountains, Cedar Point, and Florida, and chases a wild goose around the city of Fort Wayne?!!? CRAZY, right? Actually, it ' s Campus Life. Campus Life, a division of the Fort Wayne area Youth for Christ, sponsored many activities including a " wild goose chase. " In this event Campus Life clubs from different high schools raced to find a live goose that was hidden somewhere in the city. A ski trip which had been planned for the weekend that " the Bliz- zard of ' 78 " struck was held the follow- ing weekend. Those who went had a great time, even Dave Springer, who broke his arm while tubing down Suicide Hill, and Sue Smith, who injured her leg. When the group wasn ' t doing special things, it met weekly at a member ' s house. There were regular meetings, and Insight, where indepth discussions about everything from depression to family life took place. Campus Life members make a pyramid during the " Winter Wipeout " ski trip in Michigan.

The interviews, typing, deadlines, and basic hysteria seemed minimal. Midway through the year, the Advance took on a new look. The masthead and nameplate were changed to a different type style. Special features were done on dutch dating, what teenag- ers do (in the eyes of first graders), and on the artwork of Galen Bailey and Ellis McCracken. Surveys were taken to discover Trojan feelings toward alcohol and students ' ideas on how to improve city parks. Even though photographers and editors had their problems, almost everyone ended up admitting that pictures helped the publications. The many hours spent in the darkroom proved to be an important aid to both the newspaper and the yearbook. Advance Staff: Front — Anne Springer, Diane Miller, Karen Hoe- mig, Judy Goshorn.

Quite to the contrary, the council added much to the betterment of Elmhurst High School. The biggest project that the Student Council hosted was the city-wide Muscular Dystrophy Dance-a-thon. Trojans brought in over $2,000 for the cause, while the entire dance raised over $4,000. Some of the major accomplishments of this year ' s Student Council were the hosting of two very successful volleyball tour- naments in which about 100 people participated, a Penny Arcade that outdid all other Penny Arcades, and the Christmas program that presented money and goods to Miss Virginia. The council also donated money to a Student Aid Fund, that all EHS clubs will benefit from. Junior John Draper and his partner Lori Smith dance for those who can ' t at the M.D. Dance-a- thon.

The- Winter of 1 978 started out like most other Winters, but it was destined to be unforgettable. It began with the play, " Ten Little Indians, " basketball games, wrestling meets, and Christ- mas parties. But with the beginning of the new year, excite- ment exploded. During a cold day in January, EHS was evacu- ated due to an electrical fire in the storage area. This was closely followed by the memorable " Blizzard of ' 78 " which left Fort Wayne paralyzed by snow. A record long coal strike also affected Trojans. It made EHS dark and cold for most of the Winter. During the Christmas assembly, senior Stu Norton tells Mr. Eugene White (alias Santa Claus) that he wants everybody to GET ROWDY!

Prob ems Overcome by Determination The season ended for boys ' reserve basketball, but not with- out showing that the Trojans had a lot of experience and deter- mination. The guys finished up with an 8-9 record, 3-6 in SAC. Though the Trojans played well, they had to overcome many problems. The guys had to play without junior Tim Lankenau this year. Tim was injured during a practice and wasn ' t able to return to the line-up for the rest of the season. Another prob- lem the Trojans had to overcome was bad weather. It short- ened their practice time, cancelled regular season games, and at the end cancelled all reserve sectional play. But the reserves are looking toward next year, when they hope to be able to support the Trojans on the varsity level. Sophomore Scott Auer reaches high for the tip in.

This year was no different than last year, when it came down to the sectional draw. The Trojans drew North Side, the number one team in the state at the time, for a first round game.

Quill Scroll: Jim Nelson, Syd Hutner, Karl Riet- dorf, Joan Landrigan, Brian Coyle, Lise Duemling, Jeff Roby, Mark Mullen. Ever wonder what an Aniibrum staff member does? A staffer must be able to do numerous things . . . finding inter- esting pictures, drawing artistic layouts, writing copy, cropping pictures, meeting deadlines, and yelling at photographers, just to name a few! But more important than any of these things, the Aniibrum staff has to enjoy people. A yearbook lasts forever, a nd so do all of the thoughts, expressions, and care that the staffer puts into a layout. Although each member is different, each has one com- mon goal — to make the yearbook a suc- cess. Well, maybe they share another common goal — to have fun while they work on their first goal! Quill Scroll is an honor society for outstanding journalism students. Mem- bers of this organization were chosen on the basis of academic and journalistic achievement. Again this year. Quill and Scroll sponsored a haunted house for the annual Penny Arcade. The Quill Scroll banquet was held at the Black Rose where new members were initiated and the following year ' s publication staffs were announced.

Keeping score, picking up bats, and acting as cheerleaders were some of the duties of a Diamond Devil. These girls did ever thing in their power to help out the baseball team. They attended all the games, and provided spirit and support wherever possible. The Trojan Takedowns did much the same thing as the Diamond Devils. The recipient of their hard work was the wres- tling team. Takedowns ran the conces- sion stand, kept team scores, made pos- ters, and yelled, screamed, and cheered the restlers on. They also helped out with the wrestling banqu et by making posters and decorating tables. Marianne Rodriguez commented, " We sold key- chains this year to help make some extra money for the team. It was a good year. " For many girls, it was a fun way to meet new people while helping out at the same time. The lettermen were not an organized club this year, although they did carry out the tradition of providing the home- coming queen and her court with escorts. The group consisted of young men and ladies who had earned a letter.

Call a profes- sional. The media and A.V. workers at Elmhurst were both friendly and qualified to help. They were ready any time of the day to fix a broken film, rewind a video tape, check out a book, or find a periodical. The workers were a great help to the librarians and the media center couldn ' t have been run efficiently without the skill of these students. On recognition night, certificates for two and three years of service were given to junior Marianne Rodriguez and senior Pat Masson, respectively. A.V. workers helped out those poor teachers who didn ' t know one end of a film projector from another. No films, video tapes, or filmstrips could have been shown without these students. Although there were not many cafeteria workers, they contributed much to the daily lunches. Most students didn ' t ever stop to think that the f rench fries they were eating were made by a fellow student, or that the dishes they were eating off of were washed by a friend. Junior Kim Knoihoff washes dishes after the final lunch mod of the day. Junior Marianne Rodriguez takes a book from the shelf while checking inventory. Media, Cafeteria, and A.V.

This year, as in previous years, the Afro-American Club put on a talent and fashion show. The money earned was used to take a trip to Cedar Point. At the Christmas assembly, junior Patricia Bright sang " The Christmas Song " to highlight the Afro-American Club ' s con- tribution to the spirit of Christmas.

This annual carnival-like event took on a clas- sier look than in years past with a night club, a casino, and a television show remake. The " Langston Lo unge, " pre- sented by the Afro-American Club, featured soul music and live dancing, while the band ' s " A Little Bit of Vegas " housed gam- bling and starred the " J. Dewey Funk " band with the renowned stripper, senior Shelley Bradtmiller. The senior class organized the only event involving other schools in the " Almost Anything Goes " competition in which Concordia High School won, beat- ing Elmhurst by only one point. At the same time other booths kept people busy with the promise of fun and prizes. Where else could one have created a spin-art painting, gotten haunted by the Campus Life-Quill and Scroll spook house, eaten cotton candy, drunk lemonade, or bought penny candy, and known at the same time he was helping out his favorite clubs and organi- zations?

Students decorated the courtyard Christmas tree and some teachers even added holiday touches to their rooms. The music department gave its annual Christmas Concert while the foreign language department prepared for its Christmas party. This special event was held December 20 after school and featured skits, songs, and scrumptious foods from each culture — German, French, and Spanish. To highlight the week was the Elm- hurst Christmas assembly. Mr. White appeared as Santa Claus while Mr, Stubbs posed as Frosty the Snowman. A few lucky students got to sit on Santa ' s lap and had the opportunity to tell him what they wanted for Christmas. Various teachers received joke gifts from the Stu- dent Council — Mr. Lohr, a joke book; Mr. Werling, a drum; Mr. Derbyshire, some badly needed hair; Mr. Habegger, a Notre Dame T-shirt; and Mr. Carrier, a laughing box. Next came a rather unu- sual event — the cheerleaders were auc- tioned off to the highest bidder. The money collected ($124.00) was given to the honored guest. Miss Virginia. The student body filled almost half the gym with food, clothing, and toys for her and those she helps, showing that the true spirit of Christmas is giving. Senior Bill Stewart adds a strand of tinsel to the courtyard tree as 1977 graduate Laura Bowen holds the ladder steady. 94 — Christmas " Where should we put all this?

" After many years of hidden use, drinking and pot-smoking became accepted parts of weekend life. At most parties it was no longer a question of if it would be there or if someone could do it without being caught. Yet as the novelty wore off, peer pressure lessened, and one could freely decide if he wanted to participate or not. A common sight to many — Miller High Life. 96 — Weekends 1 ' i Weekends: The Time for All the Extras m onday, Tuesday, Wednes- day, Thursday, FRIDAY! Fri- days were everybody ' s favorite day of school and Saturdays and Sundays were the best times of the week. They were the only times kids could do what they really wanted to do without teachers or school in the way — the time for all the extras. Weekends were a great time to get together with friends at a Saturday night game, a party, or at Pizza Hut. They also came in handy to get in a few extra hours of work, especially after minimum wage went up to $2.65 in January. Sometimes there was even Senior Millard Hurnter spends a lot ot his spare time working in the receiving room of Nobbson ' s. time to just sit and think. Unfortunately, weekends also brought time to catch up on home- work or to start on that final project for composition. Whatever students did, weekends usually went too fast and by Monday morning kids were looking forward to a weekend again.

" In years to come when I look back on my high school days, I will remember a very enriching, exciting time in my life. " — Jacki Lyon It ' s Called Pride r here was a special feeling I r most Trojans had toward Elm- hurst. Every student would readily admit that it was not perfect, and he could list at least ten of its faults. " However all too often we con- centrate on the negative parts when in actuality they are minor, " voiced one student in a random survey which showed very few students preferred to attend any other area high school. Trojans were proud of their school without even realizing it. They cared enough to worry about it on the day of the fire, to support the basketball team during a tough sectional game against North Side, or to be excited about the new addition which would make EHS even better. They also treasured many memories of friends they had made and the laughter and good times they had had. In spite of its faults, Elmhurst was a well-liked place, sometimes just because " it was my high school. " Snow blankets the grounds surrounding Elmhurst early in January. " I often wondered why graduates would cry on commencement day. Now as that day nears, I fear and regret that I am a senior. The fear of leaving only to return as a visitor is so disheartening. " Elmhurst High School has kept my head up. The faculty and students, past and present, have inspired me to make something of my life. " I have promised myself never to return until I am pleased with what I have done. " Senior Ron Hill Student Council President " It is true, we may have the lowest SAT scores In the city, but who cares? We have, here at Elmhurst, that sense of friendship and brotherhood that we must carry with us all through our lives. This understanding of each other is far more important than anything we could ever learn from a book. " — Kim Kosiarek " The greatest impression Elmhurst has made on me is its response to the Muscular Dystrophy Dance Marathon. Elmhurst (in 1977) had only six couples and raised a grand total of $1000 for Jer- ry ' s kids. I thank Elmhurst for its respon- siveness. All of Elmhurst ' s students and faculty should be very proud of their image. " Junior KathyGier Student MD Dance Coordinator " We are involved in many things at Elmhurst High School — sports activi- ties, jazz bands, choirs, marching band, pom-pon, student council, clubs, Afro- American style shows, plays, speech events, publication, proms, penny arcades. . . (These) are a part of the life of a student at Elmhurst. We are a school that maintains a strong academic pro- gram. We . . . promote and recognize academic excellence but most of all, we are a school that respects the rights of each individual. Common courtesy, a smile, and concern make us what we are — a warm, friendly, and united school. " Mr. Richard Horstmeyer School Principal " Working with the blood program here at Elmhurst has been nothing but work well spent. The participation of those who were able to donate was fantastic. Elmhurst should be proud of these volunteers, and of Mr. George Tricolas, who put the idea of the Red Cross in Don ' s (Hoefelmeyer) and my minds. Both years proved to everyone that Elmhurst is truly a fine school and its students are great. " Senior Bill Stewart Student Blood Drive Coordinator Senior Scott Raymer ' s face shows that giving blood isn ' t too bad. " Man is not only his brother ' s keeper but also his helper. And in a very real sense Elmhurst High School has helped me become firmer in my convictions. We really do need each other. Maybe that ' s why I ' ve become so involved with the Red Cross Blood Program here. " Mr. George Tricolas Faculty Blood Drive Coordinator How Do You Feel About Elmhurst?

From One Extreme to the Other r- wo very unusual school-stopping events occurred dur- ] I ing the month of January. On January 20, an electrical fire broke out in the tunnels of Elmhurst. Even with the non-working alarms, the long practiced fire drills were put to use as all students evacuated the smoke-filled building in a rel- atively short time. Outside, everyone ran to the bus garage for protection from the snow and wind, but was soon dismissed and sent home. Hours later, students were able to redeem books and belongings. On January 25, just five days later, the " Blizzard of 78 " began. Snow, snow, and still more snow fell until Fort Wayne was buried in more than 17 inches of the white powder. Because of the strong winds, drifts up to nine feet brought everything except snowmobiles and four-wheel drive vehicles to a virtual standstill. School was cancelled from Thursday through the following week as the city attempted to recover from one of the worst snow storms ever in Indiana.

College Night, Friday, featured the Elmhurst Jazz Band and Combo, Synergy, and the J. Branum Band. Bowling Green State University and Indiana University were the two performing college bands. High school competition ran throughout the day Saturday. Awards were given to outstanding performers including Elmhurst ' s own Vicki Barber, who was given a vocal solo award. The North Side Wildsiders and the Crown Point Jazz Band were selected honor bands. They, along with the Elmhurst Jazz Band, began the final night of the festival. The Duke Ellington Orchestra, under the direction of Mercer Ellington, followed with two hours of impressive playing. Much talent and responsive crowds made the evening, as well as the whole festival, a success.

Jazz supporters take a quick break between bands. 104 — New Building Jazz enthusiasts enjoy various high school bands in the afternoon session of the 1 978 Jazz Festival. Almost but Not Quite fter years of anticipation and over a year of hard work, A the new part of Elmhurst Higin School was able to be " used for some end of the school year events. It wasn ' t completely finished, but at least it was usable. The first events held in the new auditorium were the morning and afternoon sessions of the Jazz Festival. The student body enjoyed it together for the first time on May 2 in an assembly. Mr. Joe Schultz, ventriloquist and speaker, totally captured the audience during his 45 minute presentation on love After the assembly, it was very easy to see that the students were impressed with the new building. The sophomores and juniors were excited about the possibilities it offered and most seniors felt bad because they wouldn ' t be able to use it longer. Mr. Richard Horstmeyer summed it all up with, " No other school has any better facilities than these . . . there is none finer. " New Building — 105 During class time, sophomore Mark Bruns works studiously on a drafting assignment. Junior Anthony Georgi puts the finishing touches on the pedestal of a table, while working in advanced woods. Using the band saw, seniors George Hoover and Louis Gurefsky carefully cut a lead pipe in met- als class. 106 — industrial Arts Talent Exhibited in Craftsmanship Working to gain advanced knowledge of construction from nature ' s own resources — woods, metals, and electricity — was the object of the industrial arts courses. Beginning drafting classes stressed the correct usage and care of drafting equipment. The advanced classes learned to create blueprints, scale models, and architectural layouts. Students enrolled in metals class were taught how to cut metal and weld. Special projects like making a lathe tool kit, hammer, and desk set, screwdriver, and many other useful tools were required. Gaining wisdom of wood types and how they relate to the construction and quality of a product were all combined in the beginning and advanced woods classes. The beginning woods projects included jewelry boxes, checkerboards, candleholders, and cutting boards. The advanced classes constructed more complicated objects such as dressers, tables, cedar chests, and bookcases. After completing their chosen industrial arts courses, stu- dents had a wide variety of professions to choose from. Senior Bruce Wolfe designs a complex house plan as one of the many required assignments in draft- ing class. Computer Math New Attraction atEHS Math courses offered a future in business and computer technology as advanced math students ventured into deeper aspects of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and the newest addition: computer math. The computer math class learned the proper techniques of using computer terminals. Two terminals, the Decscope and Decwriter, were used to complete semester projects. These included making an air flight program, bank balancing pro- gram, or setting up a program to play poker with the terminal. Some terminals are connected to other schools enabling com- munication from school to school. Some major math classes were algebra and geometry. Alge- bra students studied square roots, quadratic formulas and lin- ear equations. Although they did practically the same things over and over again, their daily routine was broken up by some very unusual behavior exhibited by Mr. Phil Habegger. But he was not alone; Mr. Bill Derbyshire tried to humor his geometry classes by telling them some very original jokes. Though his jokes didn ' t always go over, he managed to teach students about geometric figures, theorems, and graphs. With their advanced math knowledge, students from these classes held an advantage over others when applying for jobs and in furthering their education. Junior Paul Buuck concentrates as he tries to get an answer during first period algebra.

The library Is left somewhat disorganized while a great deal of renovation takes place. Library Undergoes Renovation The study hall and library were supposed to be the quietest rooms within the building. However, Mrs. Esther Kelley and the librarians classified it as the " Elmhurst High School Zoo. " Although considered a zoo, the library and study hall hardly resembled one, due to recent remodeling. Study hall was to be a place where students did their home- work quietly. Those who cooperated found study hall a rewarding opportunity. But other students, uninterested in catching up on homework, were allowed to sleep as long as they didn ' t disturb others who were trying to work. Many students from study hall were allowed to use the library as a study place. Students felt the library gave more freedom of movement and more space in which to work. Research materials were within easy access and pleasure books and magazines were always available. New facilities made the library a relaxing place to write research papers and study for exams. It was also convenient to be able to stop in before, after, or during school hours rather than trying to find time to go downtown to the public library. 110 — Librory and Study Hall .« n03?%!%f»r Overwhelmed with boredom, sophomore Randy Rothgeb catches up on his beauty sleep during study hall. Library and Study Hall — 111 Coed Classes Cause Mixed Emotions Being in a coed gym class aroused mixed emotions when sophomore stu- dents were required to participate in gym class with the opposite sex. Coed gym classes were required in all area high schools. In order to gain a bet- ter understanding of how students felt, a survey was taken and many feelings about coed classes were expressed. The majority of girls tended to feel embar- rassed. They feit the guys wanted to show off too much and thought they were the best. The guys felt girls slowed them down and all they did was stand around and gossip. Many students objected to coed classes. They felt they should be able to make a choice between coed and segregated gym classes. Gym activities consisted of track, ten- nis, gymnastics, archery, volleyball, soft- ball, basketball, and body building for individual development. Even though the classes had some try- ing days, students appreciated the fair- ness with which the teachers treated each individual regardless of sex. Junior Jeff Bunn strengthens his l egs by doing several toe raisers during his body building class. Mrs. Lucy Doswell ' s sophomore students retrieve their arrows after target practice. 112 — Physical Education Physical Education — 113 Experience and Money RVC allowed students to gain employ- ment training in a program not available within the school itself. Morning and afternoon classes were offered to interested students in automo- tive, food service, construction, child care, and data processing. Students studied in school for half a day and were then transferred to the Regional Vocational Center by bus. Some students babysat or conjured up gour- met dishes while others concentrated on repairing dented fenders or fixing rust spots on cars. The Regional Vocational Center offered students a chance to escape from routine classes and experiment with their career ideas before obtaining a life-time position.

From joke-cracking in class, to wearing crazy socks, to snowball fights, fun-loving juniors kept the thought of schoolwork from entering their minds. Changing the pace of being in the classroom, many middlemen devoted their time and effort to various sports and club activities after 2:35. During the day to day routine some juniors got away from the EHS scene and escaped to McDonald ' s for their lunch. The class of ' 79 had unceasing ideas to break the monot- ony, allowing their mi ddle year to progress with fun and ease.

It took many confusing meetings for them to come up with an idea for the design of the float. Following the decision, the junior class gathered at Jenny Morel ' s house. Not only were the middlemen busy on their own creation, they frequently spied on the progress of the sopho- more and senior floats. But finally after many trips to the store for supplies and long hours in Morel ' s garage, the juniors had their finished product. Even though the float meetings ended, fun times and friendships were just starting. Juniors Cindy Burget, Ann Stark and Kim Huntley catch up on gossip while wiring tissues for the float.

At the end of Homecoming Week, the juniors congregated outside in the parking lot to put the finishing touches on their float. In preparation for the grand parade and pep session, excitement rose among the juniors. Finally the middlemen ended the spirit-filled week at the victorious football game and disco dance that followed. Junior Susan Frebel joins in the fun of Homecoming Week on Hat Day.

Fighting Juniors Join Forces in Powderpuff The junior girls were anxious to show their talents on the football field. As one of the homecoming activities, everyone prepared for the powderpuff game. The juniors were coached by Mr. Willie Stubbs, and met every other afternoon at the baseball diamond. Working on offensive plays and defensive drills, the girls got assigned various positions. As the powder- puffers practiced the fundamentals of football, John Draper, Chuck Holt, and Karl Kline, oddly enough, rehearsed cheers to back up the girls. Nevertheless the seniors got a head start on the scoreboard and beat the junior powderpuffers. Stopping the action on the field, the lunior powderpuffers see if Kathy Kratzert is okay.

The class of ' 79 took action in helping fight muscular dystrophy by dancing in the dance-a- thon and being blood donors when the bloodmobile came to Elmhurst. Th y also became involved in the prom prepara- tions by decorating and selling tickets. The middlemen along with the class offi- cers were quick with action and partici- pation.

The big class of ' 79 junior-senior prom drew closer and many hours after school were spent fixing up and painting the decorations. In the meantime, the musical juniors ' efforts were focused toward the annual Jazz Festival. The courtyard was another busy spot during the sunny days, with those trying to catch a few rays, or playing frisbee, or just enjoying the long-awaited warmth. With the Spring came many banquets, receptions, and parties and some juniors we re recognized for their academic achievements at the Senior Honors Reception. Tina Travis, Paul Buuck, Kim Baade, and Byron Collier received the Tri- Kappa Awards for being the top 1 % of the junior class. Spring brought much activity and enthusiasm to the class of ' 79 along with anticipation for the coming fall. Being in the top 1% of the junior class, Byron Collier receives the Tri-Kappa Award.

High-Spirited Juniors Have Expectations The juniors became a close class while trudging through their second year at Elmhurst. This year ' s middlemen held spe- cial creativity and originality. As usual, the juniors planned the prom, but hoping to draw more people, they decided to have it at Elmhurst. They were also excited about moving into the new part of EHS, especially because they were to be the first senior class to enjoy the addition for a full year. Besides joining in the rowdiness of football and basketball games, having parties, and just plain having fun, the class of ' 79 also had to face the common " what to do after high school " problems. Through it all, the juniors stuck together looking forward to being the " King of the Mountain. " Juniors Julie Graney and Robin Mas- ters enjoy the food at the foreign lan- guage Christmas party.

Snow blanketed the ground when Spring flowers would have normally bloomed. As the snow melted, flooded roads, yards, and fields made for a lot of mushy experiences. Spring sports had to be slightly postponed, but there were baseball games, track, tennis, and golf nneets. This busy season also included the prom, recognition nights, the opening of the new part of the building, and graduation. Even with all the activity of Spring, almost everyone was preparing to end another phase of their lives and look toward something new . . . SUMMER!

Using all his might, junior Jody Fisher bench presses 310 pounds. During a quiet spring day, the sun shines down on a peaceful place in the park. Spring — 131 Expressions of Creativity Expression was the key to creativity, as many art and photography students dis- covered. Underneath all the paint and behind the faces, there lay a special feel- ing which words alone could not express. Painting, drawing, and sculpting were among the many different styles of art taught this year. All of these required time, concentration, and most of all, pre- cision. Stagecraft was another aspect of art where students built backdrops and props for school plays and activities. Photography students took pictures of fellow classmates and the Fort Wayne area. They worked with special effects in order to gain a better understanding of photography. After having completed this course, some stu ' dents joined the Advance and Aniibrum staffs where they applied their newly acquired skills. Thanks to the art and photography classes the school has profited in many ways. Students involved in these subjects have added creativity to the halls and cafeteria of EHS by displaying their vari- ous artwork. Juniors Richard Teusch and Enus Ybarra concen- trate on transforming a simple sketch into a work of art. Focusing plays an important part in the quality of final prints, as junior Mike Fahlsing discovers in Mr. Goss ' photography class. Demonstrating the use of a dark bag, senior Sue Smith makes preparations to roll film onto develop- ing reels. Sophomore Brian Lichtsinn, stagecraft student, lends a helping hand in the preparation of the annual play. Sophomore Joanie Byrne realizes that puzzles are not as easy to conquer as they seem. Junior Cindy Beckstedt listens to instruction while crocheting an afghan in needlecraft class. Mr. Donald Mahlan of Knake and Mahlan Associ- ates stresses conflicting points of buying a home as he addresses housing students. Juniors Garrett Alexander and Mark Maxwell care- fully cut material for their sewing project. Learning to Cope Learning more about people and dis- covering how to best cope with the frus- trations that may arise in life are major parts of the home economics depart- ment. Home economics is usually con- nected with cooking and sewing, but at EHS it also includes human develop- ment, needlecraft, housing, and con- sumer action. Exciting classes were hard to come by, but students found consumer action to be a fun and interesting class. Consisting mainly of juniors and seniors, the class spent most of its time reviewing films, listening to guest speakers and going on field trips. Students found themselves fascinated by the annual field trip to the Eizey-Dickey-Haggard Funeral Home where they were shown the different pro- cedures that must be followed by the mortician. Imagination became a part of the housing class as students constructed various dreamhouses that were imagi- narily put up for sale. One home created by seniors Dana McCormick, Kelly Sims, Mari Crago, and Judy Buell is selling in Alaska on a secluded iceberg, complete with a corral of penguins. A shopping center is only a few icebergs away. Its owner, Wally Walrus, is managing sales. Human development unde rtook the obligation of answering students ' ques- tions and sharing others ' opinions con- cerning child care and marital relation- ships. From one strand of yarn came colorful hats, scarves, slippers, and potholders. Those projects were produced by the beginning needlecraft classes, who also learned the basics of needlepoint and crocheting. Advanced students spent many hours creating more difficult items such as quilts, hooked rugs, and appli- ques. They were able to save money by making their own gifts and, in some cases, made money by selling their pro- jects. With the variety of courses offered in the home economics department, stu- dents gained knowledge as well as expe- rience needed to deal with life. Home Economics — 35 OAUW Sophomores Marie Elena Lyon and Mark Hunter curiously examine a cow ' s heart that was specially preserved for the use of Mr. Carter Lohr ' s advanced biology classes. As a part of an advanced biology project, sopho- more Bruce Thompson examines the detailed fea- tures of a fetal pig. 1 36 — Science Experiments Prove Successfu Science classes tended to break up the monotony of an average day as students ventured from mixing chemicals and dis- secting fetal pigs to computing human horsepow er after running stairs. Field trips were taken to places like the Wayne Planetarium to study astrology, Hodell Acres to obtain pond water samples, and Lindenwood Conservation Park to observe plant life. Experimenting and researching differ- ent environments were the basic goals of the science department. It offered a wide variety of classes consisting of chemis- try, physics, advanced biology, physical science, ecology, advanced chemistry, and earth science. Most students were able to find at least one area that appealed to them. Juniors Kathy Kuzeff and Beth Leon accurately measure the temperature of acetamide. Students in Mr. Ethan Gwaltney ' s physics class pre- pare to hand in their exam papers.

During the fall, they tantalized their audiences with routines to " Rocky " and " The Way of the World. " During the winter, the spectators were entertained with skits to " Irish Eyes " and " The Fifth of Beethoven. " The drill team ' s time and effort helped improve participation and school spirit.

To set mat- ters straight, Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA), Cooperative Office Education (COE), and Office Edu- cation Association (OEA) are all busi- ness-related organizations and classes. DECA, a required club for all students taking Distributive Education, sent many students to leadership contests. Stu- dents brought back trophies and awards, including junior Karen Batton for ad lay- outs and marketing distribution tests, and senior Patty Lee for apparel accesso- ries. Senior Jeff Roby received the award for DE District Student of the Year, which allowed him to be in the national compe- tition. The club helped students become familiar with retail commerce and adjusted them to the business world. COE acquainted students with office work. It allowed the students to become familiar with the business world and how it operated. OEA was a required club for all students taking COE. Like COE, OEA aided the student in associating and adapting to the business-minded world.

' ' " SW9(y« utlS way " powderpuffers and steafe 50 yards for a senior touchdown Never again would they end a summer by walking into an Elmhurst classroom. For the class of 1978 the next summer would fade into the less carefree days of adulthood. So the day the doors opened for the start of school, every senior knew that this year would be different. It had to be . . . It was to be the last. Maybe it was this fact that accounted for parties lasting until early morning, the unusually well-played powderpuff game, an increase in the lunch line at McDonald ' s, a float that actually stayed in one piece and wasn ' t laughed at, and a pick-up in the participation of class activities. Even those seniors who viewed school with the attitude of " Thank God it ' s finally over! " couldn ' t help but feel the change, and they also became a part of the difference. This year also brought with it the seniors ' anticipation of the future. For the first time they would be making decisions that would affect the rest of their lives and not just the ordinary " What ' ta we gonna do this weekend? " type thing. All of these thoughts came together and made the senior class want to squeeze every possible bit of laughter out of their last year at Elmhurst. But they knew it was inevitable . . . They would never pass this way again. Helplessly standing by, Kathy Stanley and Kim Burry watch as teammate Sylvia Perez tries one of their most exotic shots — an overthe-head, off- theground, pretzel spin. 1 42 — Seniors Rufnor has it that Ripley ' s Believe It or Not was on haffd for the unveiling of the senior float.

" " Yeah, we can teepee Bracht ' s since she lives right down the street. " " The senior hall looks really hep, but who left all the paint out? " " I don ' t believe you wore that! Since when did you get all this school spirit? " " Hey, I hear there ' s a big party at Murrays ' after the dance! " Somewhere in the midst of sociology tests, SAT ' s, work, foot- ball practice and government class, there was a homecoming week. It was the one, glorious week when weird clothes and unusual behavior could be accounted for. Surprisingly enough, the class of ' 78 really did take it to the limit (well almost)! Nab- bing the best float award and decorating their hall to perfection wereonly a few ways . . . senior spirit was everywhere. The seniors (with the help of the Park- isons) really put a lot into their float. A lot of work, that is . . . but plenty of fun was included. Takin ' It to the Limit Judy Duehmig finds that even home- coming week doesn ' t stop schoolwork as she looks for the right negative in photography class.

All across the nation millions of sen- iors are struck without mercy. The first signs are easy to spot; hands shake and eyes glaze at the sight of application forms, SAT scores, financial aid forms and scholarship deadlines. How many announcements or senior pictures to order along with caps and gowns were the follow up signs. The patients tend to live, but senior year can be a nerve wracking experience. If a person didn ' t have a big brother, MELINDA BOHRER ROBERT BOLLENBACHER sister, or parent that went to college these things could really be a hassle. Many seniors found Guidance Counselor Douglass Spencer a good substitute fam- ily member, sharing with him their ques- tions and future plans. For some seniors this was to be the end of school related activities. Their decisions of whether or not to move out of the house, what type of work to look for, how much room and board to pay parents and the possibilities of marriage were also things to think about. With all these questions, fears and doubts the senior class became united. United in the fact that although everyone was different, each person was in the same boat . . . trying to decide which end was up!

Footsteps Worth Following czrf JoiLcn of CLai-i " Nabbing the big stuff " is exactly what the seniors involved in the area of fine arts did. Combining a lot of time with tal- ent members of the class of ' 78 brought recognition to Elmhurst and to them- selves which will be hard to surpass. Not only did Brian Barber, Dave Nelson, Tim Gaskill and Mike Sorg nab 15 soloist awards during numerous jazz festivals, but they also wrote many of their own charts. Their " combo " definitely played the biggest part in maintaining the Elm- hurst notoriety for great jazz sounds. In art, Cindy LeMaster, Connie Shaw, Pam Sills and Sue Smith all fared excep- tionally well in the National Scholastic Art Awards contest; works of both Cindy ' s and Connie ' s were sent to New York for national judging. Cindy ' s work also won 2 out of 3 nominations for the Kodak Medallion of Excellence. Needless to say, the experience of these seniors will be sorely missed. If there was one area in which the sen- ior class seemed to dominate it would, without a doubt, be that of leadership. When seniors were asked which mem- bers of their class had exercised out- standing leadership qualities during all three years, they amazingly chose a list consisting of all girls! For three years female class officers reigned. President Mary McCombs, Vice President Joan Landrigan, Social Chairman Colleen Tonn and Secretary Kathy Stanley Rap-Up? Dave (Hard Bob Smith) Nelson adds his own touch of class to the Band ' s Penny Arcade booth. Words said in a certain tone, phrases that have ten meanings and expressions that only a few understand — every class is symbolized by them.

Athletes ' Corner Though junior prospects seemed to dominate most of the athletic teams, there were many seniors whose sports- manship, dedication and leadership were a definite plus. Three members of the senior class did, however, gain much recognition through their undeniable tal- ents. Domingo Garcia ' s football abilities won him a spot on the All-City SAC team. As a junior, Mike Starks ran his way straight to state where he placed 7th in the 440. Last, but surely not least. Matt Branning ' s three year wrestling record of 55 wins and only 5 losses took him to the state tourney where he placed fourth. headed the senior class, organizing the sale of tee-shirts, a penny arcade booth and spring activities. Captain of the drill team, Mary Hudelson, helped put together an outstanding band season, along with working in student council. Organizing the Penny Arcade and home- coming dance gave Kim Burry the expe- rience needed to direct student council as vice president. Grace Cole also added her abilities by heading the Afro-Ameri- can Club and working in student Council. T.G.I.F. For some reason the bell that rang at 2:35 on Friday always sounded sweeter than any other. Probably because it sym- bolized a whole weekend to let loose, and if there was anyone who knew how to let loose it was a senior. Movies were a com- mon weekend activity, with many of them being a big influence on high school trends. Seniors chose movies such as " Saturday Night Fever, " " Rocky, " Star Wars, " " The Good-Bye Girl, " and " Oh God " as both entertaining and enlighten- ing. Basketball games followed by Pizza Hut, Wendy ' s, Macky D ' s or Atz ' s were also a big part of senior weekend life. Pri- vate parties, catching up on ZZZ ' s, shop- ping, cruising, or even homework all ranked high with the senior class. Week- ends were, without a doubt, for letting loose in whatever way kids chose. Looking Back Fashion trends seemed to move so fast that almost anything, as long as it was coordinated, was acceptable. There were a few items, however, that generally everyone agreed were typical of the mid- dle seventies. Painter pants, gauchos (definitely with boots), cowl neck sweat- ers, stick pins, clogs, and ski jackets top- ped the list. Of course, jeans and track shoes were still a big part of high school fashion. 1 48 — Seniors CINDY CADE — DECA 2 VI NCE CAMPBELL — Jazz Band 1 1 1 ; Concert Band 1 J ESSE CAMPOS DONALD CARRION BETH CASTEEL GRACE COLE — DECA 2; Drill Team 1, 2, 3, Co- Captain 2, 3; Afro-American Club President 3; Prom Court 2; Homecoming Queen 3; Homecom- ing Court 1, 2, 3 PAM COLLIER PAM CONNETT — Jazz Band 11,2; Jazz Band II 2; OEA 3; Concert Band 1,2 ANDREW CONRAD — School Play 1, 3; Orchestra 1,2 RHONDA CONTRERAZ DERRICK COX BRIAN COYLE — Baseball Manager 1; Cheerleader 2; Aniibrum 2, 3; Campus Life 1, 2, 3; Advance 3 MAR I CRAGO BETH CREASON BECKY CUMMINGS — Gymnastics 1, 2; OEA 3; Powderpuff 2, 3; Lettermen ' s Club 1 , 2 JANICE DAVIS TERRI DAVIS — DECA 2, 3; Vice-President 3; Pow- derpuff 2; Prom Court 2; Homecoming Court 3 DERRICK DEBRUCE — Student Council 1, 2; Foot- bain,2,3 DOUG DEFAY — Jazz Band II 3 WILLIAM DEHAVEN — Projectionist 1; Track 1; Lettermen ' s Club 1 Although they wouldn ' t make the cover of Vogue magazine, models Michelle Quinn, Kim Burry, Mark Mullen, Mary Hudelson and Syd Hutner do a good job displaying high school fashions.

" Snow it did . . . for three straight days, leaving everyone without a four wheel drive or snowmobile stranded for almost two weeks. What did members of the senior class do without a means of transportation? Some of them caught up on ZZ ' s, ate a lot, or just took it easy. Many of them took care of the little things that there just wasn ' t enough time to do before; writing colleges, cleaning under the bed, or sending grandparents a letter. Apparently, a lot of them took the snow break as a good chance to update home work because 69 seniors managed to take their class to the top of the first semester honor roll list. Even though being stuck at home for two weeks wasn ' t rated high on any " fun " list, seniors agreed that the " Blizzard of ' 78 " gave them a very needed break.

Sue Smith and a friend take advantage of the weekend. riicY ' V For most people Friday night means letting loose for two entire days. Seniors are no exception to this rule. Their reali- zation of high school days finally coming to an end has taught them, not only to enjoy their weekends, but to even take pleasure in a lot of things that go on dur- ing the five, long, school days. Seniors take things as they come and usually turn them into a good time, no matter where they are or what they ' re doing. They strive to make as many good mem- ories as possible . . . memories to enjoy in the future. Because of this, they party a lot. And when they do party . . . they party hearty!

Getting away from a busy day, Sharon Schmidt enjoys some time alone at Pizza Hut. Just Want to Be. After a long, hard day at the books fol- lowed with some type of after-school activity and then homework, it was some- times impossible to smile, let alone find communication enjoyable. It was these times when one could really get into jumping in the shower, grabbing the Doritos and spending some time alone to just mellow out. With the 1,000 little things seniors had to take care of and the " busy " weekends they enjoyed, it wasn ' t hard to relate to some time alone.

They realized that they wouldn ' t ever be a part of high school activities again. For these reasons, seniors became heavily involved in almost every event. Because of sen- ior spirit. Homecoming, Penny Arcade, volleyball tournaments " , and dances were all exciting. Seniors helped organize many charitable events which included all areas of the school: where there was fun, where there was work, and where there was a chance to help the community . . . Senior involvement was truly everywhere. Lending a hand to help the less fortu- nate, members of the Afro-American Club, Grace Cole and Denise Griggs, award Miss Virginia a personalized apron.

Warmer weather brought added energy " and motivation, but more importantly it brought Spring vacation! Being a senior had a very big advan- tage when Spring of ' 78 rolled around . . . " But Mom and Dad, it ' s my last year with these guys. Can ' t we please take the car to Florida? " Parents were somewhat lenient as a lot of seniors got to visit Dis- ney World, Silver Springs, and Cypress Gardens. Many other seniors spent spring break checking out prospective colleges, while still other not so lucky ones spent their time working. Whatever they did, and wherever they did it, the summer breeze couldn ' t help but make seniors feel fine. Using spring break as a chance to get away, Kari Rietdorf and a friend soak up some Florida sunshine.

Seniors will remember the sharing of emotions. Dawn Rider expresses feel- ings of disbelief at one of her sociol- ogy speakers. Scratching the Surface " Who can write about friendship and truly do justice to it? " Surely not I, and probably not Hemingway either. Friend- ship is an overwhelming subject, one that is expressed through the heart, not words. The dictionary defines friendship as being a mutual regard cherished by kin- dred minds. That ' s a nice way of putting it, but it really doesn ' t scratch the sur- face. Friendship, true friendship, is one of the deepest forms of love, for it is the basis of all love. The sharing of all feel- ings and affections between friends adds so much to life, a special spark and glow that brightens one ' s existence. In true friendships, that spark will turn into a flame that will never flicker. It is such a warm feeling to have someone close, and to understand each other beyond any set limits. Joseph Parry, in his poem " New Friends and Old Friends, " says that friendship never knows decay; as it ages it simply will mellow and refine. — by Mary Hudelson Taking some quiet time out on the sidelines, Joan Landrigan supports the Trojan baseball team by attending a home game.

The end of every year brings to light those people who were considered achievers of their class. The seniors of ' 78 were in no way deprived of their achievers. They excelled in various activi- ties both in and out of school. This was cause for the end of the year banquet halls to be packed and the honors recep- tion to fill the auditorium. Seniors took the top spot in achieving academic excel- lence. Leading the class was Lise Duem- ling, who obtained a four year grade point average of 1 1 .407 earning her the valedictorian seat. Mark Muri was the salutatorian with a grade point average of 11.391. Another senior achiever was Shirley Pine, who competed in the receptionists ' division of the OEA contest. Shirley not only showed her talents at the local level competition, but went on to take top hon- ors at state and then advanced to nation- als where she ranked third. In the field of sports, achieving was what Matt Branning was all about. Matt was selected by the student body to receive the Sertoma Award. Basis for selection included overall good sports- manship and conduct. 1 62 — Seniors Pine Takes National Third; One of Many Senior Achievers Shirley Pine proudly displays the third place plaque she received for her sec- retarial skills at the OEA national con- test.

Daring to make more mistakes, Joan Landrigan and Jacki Lyon attempt to up-date Matt Branning ' s hairstyle! When the end of the senior year rolled around, everyone seemed to realize that nothing could change the past; only the present was available to make up for it. All the afterschool activities, clubs, grades, and friends that one wanted to have or participate in, could only be remembered with fondness. With this in mind, seniors seemed to limber up, to be sillier than they had been at the beginning, to enjoy the moments that were left — one at a time . . . hitting McDonald ' s for breakfast and then the parking lot to toss a frisbee before school . . . heading the absence list on senior skip day and enjoying the sun . . . spending more time with friends, talking about old times and what lies ahead . . . They stole a moment to do what they never had time to do or enjoy before. Seniors spent the last of their high school days picking all the dai- sies they could find.

Delighted with the thought of no more high school, Kathy Murray holds on to her diploma very tightly. We have reached the end of a long walk across the beach of life. We have tasted the waters and touched the sun. There were times when the water was too salty, and the sun made us sweat, but those times only helped make us more alive and more sensitive to what we were. Our footsteps still lie imprinted in the wet sand. They are the only things left to show where we have been and all we have stopped to see and do. For awhile they will remain, but the tide will soon come, claiming them as its own and wip- ing the beach clean again for others. The sun is almost setting, so we must build our castles in the sand. Some will build them strong, some will build them beautiful and others will build them has- tily. The waters will wash against these too, testing the builders ' patience and craftsmanship. Some will stand and oth- ers will be washed away to be built over and over again. The sun has now set, and it is time to end, and really begin again, as we always do anyway . . . — Kim Burry Castles in the Sand Dancing for those that can ' t, Kim Burry and Cheryl Perry get into the disco hustle during the M.D. dance marathon.

Nobody could really figure out quite when it started, but all of a sudden every- one was busy. Banquets, tennis meets, baseball games, and other spring events were scheduled back to back throughout May. This, along with the new-found spring weather, made time pass quickly, and it was June once again. Sophomores had grown and gained a portion of maturity and juniors were anx- iously awaiting their senior status. At the same time, the seniors faced the end with mixed emotions — excited about the future but not ready to leave the past and Elmhurst High School. Senior Kim Burry and Mr. George Tricolas plant a sapling to commemorate Arbor Day as Mr. Sinks observes the whole affair. Gee, It ' s June Already!!!

Even through an exorbitant pile of program change papers the administra- tion smiled, they understood. And even better, they corrected. The almighty administration also helped individuals " cure " their problems with habitual tardiness and " overcome " their desire for cigarettes in the restroom. Unique three day " vaca- tions " were given to offenders in hopes that after chowing down potato chips and watching soap operas for several days, they would become lonely enough to come back to school to see their friends, behave, and maybe even study a little. In the guidance counselors ' haven of power and efficiency SAT ' s, ACT ' S, and various forms and tests with other initials were explained to a seemingly endless parade of college bound seniors. College entrance requirements, minimum graduation credits, and vocational fields were stressed.

Dinah Cashman Guidance Counselor George Tricolas Guidance Counselor Faculty — 175 Close During a strenuous week at summer band camp, Mr. Robert Snyder pauses from rehearsal to )oke with his students. The first indication of this super, natural phenomenon may be a spontaneous but fleeting twinkle of the teacher ' s eye when, perhaps, a student accidentally blows a particularly big bubble with forbidden gum. Other clues may include a faculty member ' s participation in an invigorating debate on a current issue in which he listens to and, more importantly, appreciates the dissenting view. Teachers that have advanced to more progressive stages often engage in friendly conversations or even personal talks with a troubled student outside of class. Later encounters may include an almost lenient sounding, sudden chuckle punctuating a smart senior ' s remark when she announces that her homework " was eaten by her little brother " (or boyfriend, etc.). And naturally she just couldn ' t drag herself to write it out again because she ' s " been in mourning " due to her " pet rock ' s sudden and violent death " ... or something like that. This may or may not be accompanied by several brief moments of giggling and classroom relaxation. In any case, one gets the feeling that the originality, even if misplaced, was welcomed. The inevitable conclusion is caring. Faculty members have supported activities beyond the necessities of their job. Coach- ing the renowned EHS senior powderpuff football team to vic- tory and advising the Student Council are now among a few of their more treasured (?) memories. The sports teams, male and female, varsity and reserve, as well as the musical organiza- tions, clubs, and the publications were guided by gallant souls who must surely possess steely strong insides. And occasion- ally this year, one could even spot an administration member or two bravely eating with students in the cafeteria, chatting and laughing as if they enjoyed it. Rumor has it that they actu- ally did. . . and it ' s so appreciated. s (tlie esiriiiii IlIimI Sharon Banks Lawrence Bewley Susan Boesch Rose!

Cars pass each other in the morning on the way to factories, businesses, and school. Later, students and teachers pass through EHS doors, pass down the halls and again pass each other on the way to class. As the announcements pass, the hour passes. Even passes pass. The faculty and the student body comes in contact with passes of all colors as the day progresses: pink, yellow, white, fake, and especially the really impressive blue ones from the office. The lack of any of these sorts means that one must do something in order to pass the hour in study hall, maybe make the attempt to pass that particular class . . . or perhaps anything just to pass the time.

Mr. Robert Snyder strives toward a steady, driving beat as he directs the Concert Band. Participation in the musical organizations and attending the concerts interested many stu- dents. Listening to a guest speaker often helped to beat the boredom of a day. Seniors Deanna Duguid, Cindy LeMaster, Darcy Autenrieth, and Dave Nelson listen with their teacher, Mr. Richard Mattix, to a talk on the commodities market in honors eco- nomics class. 1 80 — Foculty blahs blaz unquestionably a noun. 1. sheer monotony 2. sheer monotony 3. sheer monotony. Although it was possible for one to survive the blizzard, flood, and flus of various nationalities, avoiding the blahs was doubtful. School became painfully dull, going to the games became routine. And life in general evolved into something much less than exciting. The teachers kicked back. Different techniques were employed to break the sheer monotony of school . . . and to keep their classes awake. Students participated in skits and plays, enjoyed guest speakers and films, and were even allowed an occasional field trip. Lunch always helped to temporarily beat the boredom of the day, Cafete ria Workers: Mary Allmandmger, Annabelle Detter, Dorothy Hensmger, Margie Abbott, Hellen Wiebke, Betty Maskiewicz, Eilene Schiffli, Jeanette Black, Helen DeGrandchamp, Dulla Schlaudraff, Joann Guggisberg, Delores Shultz, Amelia Harris, Elline Dennis.

Most students could see the practical side of many of their classes, such as training for a career in typing. Other courses may have simply been requirements for graduation. But there remained several subjects, and several teachers, that deserved special recognition. Hair was pulled, fingernails bitten, and knuckles were gnashed because of them . . . and the seem- ingly dictatorial reign of the teachers. These teachers assigned the most homework, gave the hardest tests, and the books nec- essary for their classes were by far the heaviest. The social studies teachers brought students in touch with what happened and to whom it happened in history and the price that it all cost in economics. Students learned " why " things happened in sociology, while some took psychology just to keep sane enough to make it through the rest of their classes. Social studies was enlightening and informative, but oh the books . . . Science was another story. This department even went so far as to provide daily entertainment. One could delight in the miraculous miniature world beneath the microscope or open innocent eyes in wonder with impromptu explosions. Advanced students even had the opportunity to dissect smelly, repulsive animals, conduct experiments with putrid chemicals, and take home equally disgusting assignments. In regard to math, one student was overheard admitting, " as balanced as teachers may appear (sigh), they teach us science to amaze us, social studies to enlighten us, and, ah . . .maybe math to flunk us. " But one must admit that other than support- ing the crusade against high grade point averages, the math teachers opened us up to an indescribable feeling of reassu- rance. Isn ' t it a comfort to know that parallel lines will never mysteriously cross during Christmas vacation? And despite snow days, SAT tests, or even lunch at the infamous EHS cafe- teria, a right angle will never equal anything other than 90 degrees, and a " Habegger hairy t)ear " will not have dissipated into oblivion. Such consistency! Maybe the only, if not small, consolation to students taking the " traditionally tough " classes is that they make one feel great if they can be passed ... or even survived.

Teaching techniques are discussed during ■ ' Back to School Night " by Mr. Al Schmutz. " 1 " 1 1 84 — Faculty Ihe Rise and Falter of Education On a day to day basis, teachers were constantly evaluating students. Judgement was passed on grades, behavior, and even subtle calculations were tabulated on current student val- ues and morals. In early 1978 a survey was circulated to momentarily turn the tables. Students were asked to evaluate various aspects of their education at Elmhurst. Stated plainly and without gloss, 88% of those surveyed felt that the grading scale (as it appears in the Student Handbook) is a terribly inaccurate judgement of scholastic achievement, and is used inconsistently. Students were highly complimentary in other areas, such as the honors program, and 71 % found their classes challenging. Daily studying was clocked in by 42%, with 35% putting forth the effort during an occasional hour here and there. They gave evenly divided answers when asked if they felt that the faculty is concerned with the progress of the students. Many simply said " generally. " One student replied, " If the fac- ulty is concerned with the student body, then why do they waste valuable time harassing us with the attendance rule? Even conscientious superior students are shot down regardless of the legitimacy of the absence, their efforts to make up their work, and their progress and contributions in that class. " The attendance rule was violently opposed by over 80% of the sur- veyed students. In conclusion, the students have offered the interesting wis- dom of their experience. After all, who is in a better position to evaluate a situation than those placed in that position? They ' ve answered honestly with honest criticism, suggestions, and praise. And more importantly, these individuals have responded with an aura of optimism that will hopefully extend far, reaching into their futures.

A life of curiosity and awareness was initiated, formed, and the effort was made in the hope of its continuance through the influence of parents, friends, and teachers. At this apex in life the doors all stand open. A network of new possibilities of a career, marriage, college — emerge to be chosen from to determine the next phase. " Meanwhile the doors to the " almost " past begin to dim and fade, distorting just a little as the emphasis is removed from them. They remain open at the moment, although the breeze has lifted to gently sway them. Events are evolving into memo- ries. Parents will always be parents, but in a new muted light when one leaves home. Friends will always be cherished, but soon will be far and scattered, and the feelings smudged. Teachers will be remembered, perhaps visited occasionally the first year after graduation and maybe once or twice after that, and then maybe not at all as the doors have slowly slammed shut.

Faculty — 187 Doswell Retires From Coaching; Girls Rebuild Having only one senior and two juniors returning proved to be an important factor as the girls ' tennis team ended the year with a 5-7 record. The number one doubles team of Robin Masters and Angle Masterson led the Trojans as they won nine matches and lost only four. Robin and Angle (alias " M M " ) were backed by sophomore Becky Cramer, who played number four singles and had a record of ten wins and two losses. The weather, once again, proved to be a problem for the Tro- jans causing them many cancellations. At the end of the year senior Kim Burry was named Outstanding Senior, and junior Karen Hoemig received the Mental Attitude Award. This was Lucy Doswell ' s last year as a Trojan coach.

" Probably the one key factor this sea- son has been the leg injury to Mike Starks, " stated Coach Carter Lohr. " Had he been healthy all season we would have been much more competitive as a team. Conceivably, we would have been in the top four teams in the sectional instead of the seventh place finish that we ended up! " The injury put senior Mike Starks out of action for most of the season, but with the help of Coach Lohr and Assistant Coach Charles Kammeyer, Mike kept on running and managed to run a 50.3 — good enough for third place in the sec- tional. This qualified him for the regional meet. Others that qualified for regionals were juniors Chuck Smith, placing fourth in the 220 yard dash with a time of :22.6; Chris VanPelt placing second in the long- jump with a leap of 21 feet 6 inches and senior Dan Henderson in shot put. With their high places in the regional meet. Chuck and Chris qualified for state competition. Neither placed at state.

Having only one returning senior, Gina LoCastro, and eight juniors on the team. Coach Cathy Russell had to face a lot of inexperienced tracksters. But as the season progressed, the girls showed that they had talent by sending ten on to section- als: junior Jenny Morel in the 80 yard hurdles, junior Anne McCleneghen and sophomore Sherri Brooks in the high jump. Penny Shallenberger and Camille Evans in the 100 yard dash. Penny and Camille were also in the 440 relay along with Chan- dra Ware and Janet Stephens, and the 880 medley consisting of sophomore Vanessa Bright and juniors Cindy Burget, Jenny Morel, Janet Stephens went to sectionals.

There were so many good times; what was the most fun? Recreating a certain moment and- declaring it the best is hard to do . . . and it ' s not fair to the other great times. But remembering a smile, a laugh, a special song or a phrase can bring back a feeling of togetherness that will never be again. Soon people will be going their own ways . . . some for just the summer, others for their entire lives. But each, no matter which way his life turns, has been touched by good memories while at Elmhurst. 220 — Closing Sophomore Jeff Doan tries to cover up his embar- - Sophomore Tari Knuth laughs so hard she is una- ' ble to finish her uneven parallel bars routine. Closing — 221 ' " ■ ' S ' :, vfn mmmm . Taking a break, sophomore Mark Hunter relaxes on the pole vault mat. Senior Marta Slagle and junior Lahapa Waiwaiole decide to take advantage of the sun while they practice their instruments. On a cold rainy day, the girls ' tennis team listens to the instructions of Coach Lucy Doswell. Trojans feel like they ' re in a great big whirlwind. . . thrust from one activity to another . . . into and out of useless classes . . . from one banquet to another . . . There are so many things that kids HAVE to do, there isn ' t always time to do what they really WANT to do. But no matter what they ' re doing, they do it their own way. The seniors of ' 78 didn ' t just tee-pee Elmhurst — they also had an encounter with the county sheriff. The high school competition at the Jazz Festival didn ' t take place in the gym as it had in the past, but rather provided a chance for the grand opening of the new audito- rium. The juniors also decided to break tradition — they held the prom in the cafeteria which had had the benefit of a Mr. Don Goss facelift. When Spring fever hit and senioritis struck, students did everything they could to get out of the building, even if it was just sun bathing in the court yard . . . Although EHS stu- dents feel like they ' re in a huge whirl- wind, they always do whatever they do in their own way. Junior Carolyn Denney plays the French horn at the Spring Concert. Doing It Their Own Way During advanced biology, sophomore Bruce Cas- teel uses a microscope to get a better look at his specimen. Senior Kathy Stanley receives her award from Mrs. Rose! Blessing at the Senior Honors Reception. Closing — 223 Nothing Lasts Forever . Well, It finally came ... It had to . . . Nothing lasts forever Throughout the year there were various times that everyone looked forward to — football jamboree, homecoming, penny arcade, report card distribution (!?!), M.D. Dance-a-thon, Spring vacation, and GRADUATION. Now that this moment has finally come, and the school year has ended, there isn ' t much to look forward to as far as EHS goes. We ' re only to look back on our Elmhurst days and enjoy what we ' ve already done. Yet we can ' t ponder over these days; we must continue liv- ing. We ' ve got to make more good memories, not necessarily as a part of Elmhurst, but as a part of our world. We must look toward new horizons. Hopefully the memories we tried to help you relive in this Aniibrum are as enjoyable to you as they were to us. We want to thank our fantastic staff, Mrs. Jane Hoylman, Mr. Dick Kennard of Taylor Publishing, and Mr. Jerry Crim of Senior Portraits. Thanks for everything.
