These all make up part of a school. But another part, a most important though not so obvious part, is made from personality, caring, feelings, dedication, talent, knowledge, desire — in a word, individuals. Within the bricks, concrete, glass, tiles that can and have changed through the course of Elmhurst ' s fifty years is this individuality that will always be the same as on the first day the doors were opened to Trojans. In the 30 ' s and 40 ' s when Elmhurst students were labeled as " farmers " or " hicks " because they went to a new coun- try school, they kept their heads up and their individuality intact. Then in 1965 when the outside of Elmhurst changed, a lot of other things changed too. Student population kept grow- ing and growing towards its peak in the late 60 ' s. But even with all the growing and changing the Trojans still had that persistent individuality to set them apart from the rest. With the turmoil and political unrest of the turbulent 60 ' s followed by the " me " decade of the 70 ' s, EHS students maintained individuality and a sense of unity. Even though Elmhurst student views differed, that sense of unity kept them together and gave them " A Lot to Look Back On. " Elmhurst students held many different opinions about the Watergate trial. Some are expressed in the 1974 yearbook. won [ mmmmmmm i n Editorial fhe President Should Resign T STRIKE NO WorK i TABLE OF CONTENTS Student Life 8 Seniors 44 Underclass Faculty 70 Academics 118 Clubs 148 Sports 170 Ads 214 Index 229 Closing 236 An aerial shot of the Elmhurst grounds shows the additions that have been made in the past fifty years.

A Lot to Look Back Tradition tradition (tra-dish ' un) — The oral transmission of information, opinions, beliefs, customs, etc. from father to son or from ancestors to posterity. Webster ' s says it well but Elmhurst says it better! In fifty years we have built up countless traditions. Homecoming has been happening since 1932 and although some parts of its tradition have changed over the years, homecoming is basically the same, a time for alumni and current students alike to get together and celebrate another year. The Penny Arcade is another fall tradition, but this year could possibly be its last. This carnival type tradition has been going on at EHS for six years and for six years it has given the Trojans a chance to earn some money for their clubs and also let loose and have a good time all at once. The Winter season brings two very special traditions. Every year there is a Christmas assembly when money and other goods collected by the student body are presented to Miss Virginia Schrantz, whose home is open to provide less fortunate people with the things they need. Not all traditions are old; the Snowball is a semi-formal dance that is put on by the student council. This gives the Trojans a chance to " put on the Ritz " and have a really good time. The Jazz Festival is just one of the traditions that occur in the spring. It has been drawing crowds to Elmhurst for twelve years. This year ' s EJF featured Clark Terry, who was also the guest artist at the very first festival. The BIG tradition of the spring is, of course, the Prom. A new traditional aspect that was recently added to the prom scene is the crowning of a king as well as a queen. Then come the annual, traditional awards banquets. Most of EHS clubs have traditions within these traditions. Initiations or annual gag awards make every organization a little different and special. Graduation, the grand finale of a year of tradition, is especially meaningful for everyone. For the seniors it means the end of one life and the beginning of another. The faculty and administration see another class go on to use the knowledge and judgment that was taught to them in high school. Underclassmen say goodbye to their older friends and look forward to the day when they will be turning their tassels in the solemn ritual. At Elmhurst tradition means experiences that make memories. And those memories are the ones that make Elmhurst graduates never forget their high school years. Several couples share a slow dance at the 1981 prom, " One in a Million. " Approximately 100 couples attended the prom this year. The Snowball was a big success, partially due to the excellent music played on a sound system by junior Tim Stephens. 4 — Tradition Sophomores Jeannette Heastan, Jeff Kruse. and Jim Folland try their luck and skill at the always successful Li I Vegas.

Mr. Al Schmutz directs the Trojan Singers in his last Jazz Festival Mr. Schmutz is retiring this year after helping get vocal jazz incorporated in the EJF. The Allen County Courthouse makes a beautiful histori through the trees at Freimann Square. This sign painted on a building on the Landing is a not-too-familiar relic from the past. Fort Wayne citizens do have some strange notions now and then, but the park department always remains concerned for our safety. I For Your Safety No Swimming Or Wading Take a Look at Fort Wayne To go back 50 years and walk around downtown would definitely provide a culture shock for some of the 1980-81 student body of Elmhurst. In the past half century the face Df Fort Wayne has changed and is, to some, almost jnrecognizable. There are still some old standbys like the Embassy (it used to be called the Emboyd after Emma Boyd). The Landing, although it ' s had somewhat of a facelift and has lost some of its charming members, is still a part of the nightlife. The Courthouse, Old City Hall (it ' s now the Mien County Historical Museum), and the Swinney House are some other landmarks that have resisted the Degressive wrecking ball. Now there are new buildings, and new spaces taking the Dlaces where old buildings used to stand. There are new aarks and playgrounds. The Old Fort, the City-County Building, the Fort Wayne National Bank Building, and of course, One Summit Square all grace the streets of downtown. Fast food chains have infiltrated urban Fort Wayne, and we can ' t forget the cultural additions of the Center for the Performing Arts and Foellinger Theater. Just as scientists observe that California is slowly but surely slipping into the sea, so can citizens of our community see that Fort Wayne is surely but not so slowly moving north. The big surge north began when the Nickel Plate Railroad, which is now the Norfolk and Western, was elevated in the early 1950 ' s. With that out of the way, it gave Fort Waynians free reign to spread, expand, and build shopping centers, apartment complexes, industries, housing developments, the " famous " by-pass, the regional campus of lU-Purdue, and the Memorial Coliseum which grew out of the Centlivre Estates. With all the northward expansion and the renovation of downtown Fort Wayne, residents have a lot to look forward to but, more importantly, we have " A Lot to Look Back On.

Santa and his team of reindeer lit up the city for the first time in 23 years after being restored by industrious volunteers. s K jf i From Depression to Devo For fifty years the doors of Elmhurst have been opening to students of different backgrounds and ideas. In the 30 ' s they opened to students who had every right to be hostile. More than two hundred people were yanked out of their respective schools and expected to go to a brand-new school out in the boondocks, that no one had ever heard of before. This school had no reputation for any championships in anything and to top that off they had the Depression to contend with. When the 40 ' s rolled around EHS had built up a minor reputation. People no longer dreaded going to the " new " school in town and the label of " hick " school didn ' t sting as much as it used to. The Trojans busied themselves with working towards the end of WWII and once it was over, adapting to the U.S. out of war. The 50 ' s brought bobbie socks, argyle sweaters, and the twist. It was a social time for the Trojans but the political issues did not go unnoticed. High school students held rallies and debates to try and sway each other ' s blossoming political intellects. Then came the controversial 60s. Political awareness came to the forefront with rebellion everywhere. Mini-skirted, bell-bottomed flower children were all around trying to bring peace and happiness to millions. Rock ' n ' roll or folk music. Joan Baez or the Beatles, drew millions of teenagers from all different backgrounds to concerts and music festivals. They all had common interests, to get together, have a good time, and listen to some good music. The 70 ' s and the building of Wayne and Homestead High Schools once again yanked Trojans out of their school, but this time turned them into " Generals " and " Spartans. " Those who remained still enjoyed music, although the music had changed to punk as we formed the Trojan personality of the 80 ' s. With 50 years of growing and changing, Trojans have " A Lot to Look Back On.

" Student Life — What Is a Friend? Had we been asked this question when we first entered high school, the response might have been a lit- tle vague. But by the time you ' ve spent just one year in this pile of bricks, where the seeds of friendship have been planted and the flower of security has grown, the response becomes much less definable. We use the words caring, sympathetic, and funloving to describe our friends. But are there any words that really describe those relationships that endure every and anything? Our friends are the people that have undoubtedly seen us at our very worst (every Monday morning) and at our very best (every week- end). They ' re the people that we turn to when we need a laugh or a hug or a shoulder to cry on. They ' re the people that we share special secrets with, skip class to soothe a growling stomach with, curse week- end homework with, participate in sporting events with, and hang out on weekends with. You experience the thrill of victory together (NOT getting caught skipping class) like- wise the agony of defeat (getting caught skipping class). Friendships play an important role in every student ' s life. Throughout its 50 years, Elmhurst has been the foundation for the building of thou- sands upon thousands of special rel- ationships. Friendships found at Elm- hurst will always mean " A Lot to Look Back On. " Team sports stress the importance of working together towards a common goal These varsity football players have developed a strong relationship through their dedication to the team. The annual Snowball gave the student body a chance to have fun with old friends and the chance to meet some new people. Sophomores Jim Folland and Bonnie Sheirbon share a fast dance. Caring is considered to be a good quality found in friendships Senior Jamie Davis makes sure that senior Tom Wolf doesn ' t catch cold at the last home football game. Throughout the year special relationships between males and females develop here at Elmhurst. Freshman Lisa Myers and junior Jim Cross share a few special moments after a pep session. Sharing is usually an important element in friendship. Seniors LeeAnn Fulkerson and Angie O ' Connor demonstrate the art of sharing pizza. Friendship — 1 1 The next four pages are dedicated to the creative minds of our student body. The photographs and cre- ative writing that were sub- mitted reflect the thoughts and ideas of the students at this particular point in their life. These are al l works that will be well worth looking back on 50 years from now. Student Life Editor Jamie L. Davis Creative Arts We have everything we could want: food, clothing, shelter, love, each other . . . But we want more and yet we have nothing We are never at peace with ourselves or the world around us For the wanting just gets in the way of enjoying what we already have. Steven Wellman 11 How I want you How I need you How I love you How I feel you Please come to me and help me to see, that I may come to you and help you through all the pain and sorrow so that we may see tomorrow not just yesterday or all that is past since that ' s not where our love will last. Dean Maier 12 - Sitting in the soft green grass with you by my side, watching the ducks as they swim silently by. The wind blowing softly bringing whispers to my ears, telling me love ' s secrets and things I want to hear. I sit here quietly watching the cool water trying to calm, you ask me why I ' m silent, I say it ' s in a song. We ' re all alone and wondering how life will treat us now, but as our hands clutched tighter I was begin- ning to see just how. I ' m really glad to have met you. my troubles have disappeared, but if and when I have them, I ' ll long for you to be near. This all may sound so mushy but I think you ' ll understand, how it is when you like someone and hope they give a damn. KimPebernat 12 Photo by John Merz 1 1 " I Lie " In a hammock Hie. Feeling refreshing breezes brushing by Wisps of wind On a warm day That cool me — calm me While I Lie. Staring mindlessly at light blue above My mind mingles — My body blends — My soul swings into the air! And I ascend to the sky! But still I Lie. Listen! Stillness surrounds me. All around An absence of sound . . . Silence. A silence different from The lifeless silence Before a storm . . . When the Earth holds her breath. Different from the silence before BIG BLACK BILLOWING clouds blow in — To breathe life back. Silence. Soothing silence. At ease . . . Relaxed . . . I sleep. Mike Paxson 1 1 Just the Same I sit here in this stale smell of smoke I watch the drinkers get drunk I hear some of them yell or laugh and what for? Maybe to impress friends or to hide sorrow. Maybe pain Some do it to be doing something Oh! You ask me What I ' m doing here I reply: " Just the same.

I see that my Winnie-the-pooh has been reading my favorite childhood book and that my clowns have wiped the tears off of their cheeks. My coloring book has another page colored in it and the crayons are sprawled all over my floor. My roller skates have been fas- tened to my first doll ' s feet and she has fallen out of them. I begin to put things back in order and I walk into my closet and a child lies asleep. Cathy Nickels 11 Memories, Glimpses of the past, Places, friends, events that never last. The times we spend together Will live in our minds forever, For our memories, what we do and say, Make our lives what they are today. Curt Syndram 11 : : I remember when things used to be so simple. I played in the rain, drank Kool-aid, and rode my bike. I didn ' t know about love and I thought all persons of the opposite sex had cooties. I didn ' t know or care how much money the government was spending in space exploration. I didn ' t care about the starving people of the world. I didn ' t care about alcohol or drug abuse. I didn ' t care about Vietnam. I don ' t even remem- ber who was president when I was five or six or even seven. Nor did I car e. I ' d never heard of social injustice or prejudice and sex discrimina- tion. Things were so easy before I grew up. Every- thing was so easily defined in my wide but inno- cent eyes. I trusted so emphatically whatever I was told. After all, why would anyone lie to me? I remember simplicity. I remember a child. Today I only watch the rain from my window, and I still drink a glass of cherry Kool-aid once in a while, and of course occasionally I ' ll ride my bike. But somehow it ' s not quite the same. It will never be quite the same. Tracy Richardson Copy Jamie Davis r Dress-up day turned the students of EHS into real ladies and gentlemen. Like a lot of guys, senior Rusty Reed wore a sharp three piece suit. Wasted Days . The five days of spirit week were anything but wasted. Punk day, cowboy and Indian day, red and gray day, dress up day and the float competition are just a few of the activities that helped to make spirit week a big success. The most unique of the daytime activities had to be punk day. Everything from purple and pink hair and painted faces to plastic ties and Devo glasses were seen on Trojan bodies throughout the school. Spirit week also offered some nighttime events such as ping pong and volleyball tournaments, Burger King point night and the Campus Life burger bash. All of the week ' s activities were building and leading up to the climax, the Homecoming parade. When Friday finally arrived the parade in the boys gym featured Mrs. Sharon Jones and Mr. Byron Carrier as Grand Marshals. For the se- cond year in a row, the seniors lost the float com- petition. The sophomore class had the winning float with their interpretation of a church and the slogan, " The Knights don ' t have a prayer. " As the pep session Punk day was a tremendous success with a large number of students participating. Displaying their unique punk garb are sophomores Laura Lawrence. Jamie Sheffer, Lauren Buschey. and Kathy Gordon. came to an end so did a very successful spirit week. But two questions still remained on every Trojan ' s mind: who will win the game and who will be the 1980 Homecom- ing queen. Both questions were answered the very next evening . . .

Senior Ruth Perjak models some authentic looking duds. 16 — Homecoming And Wasted Knights It was a crowd of anxious Tro- jans that awaited the halftime activities on that chilly October night. In honor of Elmhurst ' s 50th anniversary, Mayor Win- field Moses presented the city ' s flag to Principal Richard Horstmeyer and Student Coun- cil President Thomas Filchak during a pregame show. For the members of the court, waiting must have seemed like eternity. Finally halftime did arrive, the Trojans were behind but that didn ' t seem to dampen anyone ' s spirit. The festivities began with the band giving an excellent perfor- mance on the field. Then, it was finally time to present the court to the crowd, First the freshman court was introduc- ed: Amy Arend, Jenny Druley, and Marie Heiney. The sophomore court included Julie Burt, Pam Stewart, and Sara Weaver. The junior court consisted of Peggy Arend, Tif- fany Bryant, and Lisa DeRoche. The senior court was compris- ed of Tonya Mudd, Laura Park, Sherry Parnin, Lisa Poorman and Jill Reinhart. At last the long awaited mo- ment surfaced. The 1980 Homecoming queen is . . . Lisa Poorman. The rest of the even- ing slipped away as the game ended with a Trojan defeat. The conclusion of the week ' s events was the Homecoming dance where the mood was lively as the night wasted away. Leading the anxious crowd in a rowdie little chant is senior Jul Gasvoda. The 1980 Homecoming court looks on as Lisa Poorman begins her reign as queen. Although the football team worked hard at trying to waste the Knights, the game ended in a Trojan defeat. r3 18 — Homecoming Homecoming — 19 After being provoked by Mr. Wilson (Bill Starn) Nurse Kelly (Lisa Poorman) shows the audience her tough side. Mrs. Chumley, better known as senior Claire Wyneken, played the part of the stereotyped " nagging wife. " Veta (Kara Stewart) obviously quite upset, tells her daughter Myrtle (Chris Harris) and Judge Gaffney (Mark Calligan) about Elwood ' s invisible friend. 20 — Fall Play Elwood P. Dowd, the amiable but eccentric bachelor, was portrayed by senior Thomas Filchak. When Elwood disappeared everyone tried to figure out where he could have gone. Dr. Chumley (Mike Paxson), Dr. Sanderson (John Hermes), Mr. Wilson (Bill Starn). Veta (Kara Stewart), Myrtle (Chris Harris), and Judge Gaff- ney (Mark Calligan) all show their concern over his mysterious disappearance. A Hare Raising Success On Nov. 4 when the curtain came wn and the lights came on, the au- nce was left with a feeling of sheer joyment. The entertainment for the ening was the fall play, " Harvey, " rich was presented in the auditorium Nov. 8 and 9 as well. ' Harvey " is about an eccentric chelor, Elwood P. Dowd, who has Dblems coming to grips with reality, vood spends most of his time in a itasy world with his imaginary best jnd, Harvey, a big white pooka ibbit). Elwood ' s sister Veta and his niece ' rtle think that he is going quietly in- Te and attempt to have him commit- 1 The only thing Elwood is really try- ! to do is convince people that their earn world is every bit as significant the world of reality. Ml of this adds up to a delightfully lusing story that does nothing but ng sheer pleasure to its audience til the very end. Cast of Characters Elwood P.

Arcade Lacks Interes On Nov. 14 Elmhurst held its annual Penny Arcade sponsored by the Student Council. The turnout was low this year. Many people blame that on the lack of school spirit. This year there were only a total of 18 booths altogether and approximate- ly 340 people attended and participated in the p ' nnu Ar - cade. Some of the booths that drew the most people were the band ' s Little Vegas, the Quill and Scroll ' s spookhouse, and the spin art room, Langston Lounge, and a fortune telling booth. In the end there were only a couple of organizations that raised more money this year than last year. Some groups ' " ' ' e considerably less than last year. The sophomore class only made $19.05 this year com- pared to last year ' s $59.10. This lack of student and faculty interest and involve- t ment could cause the annual Penny Arcade to be a thing of the past. This may be the last Penny Arcade that we have to look back on. s l Foreign exchange student, Francisco Garcia de Leon takes his turn at reading palms in the AFS fortune telling booth. Little Vegas also offered its visitors a chance to do a little gambling. Sophomore Laura Lawrence took care of the people who dared to play the wheel of fortune. Cutting Loose For many Trojans school offers the same old dull routine day in and day out. But what about those days when you just don ' t feel like fitting into the norm? I ' m talking about those days when you just feel like letting go and cutting loose. Well what ' s a student to do? It is without question that people need a change of pace from time to time and a high school setting is the perfect place for unpredictable antics. While some Trojans try to fight the feel- ing most of them inevitably give in to temptation and do something off the wall. For instance, some students feel the need to release their loony moods in a classroom while others find that playing frisbee in the courtyard is a great way to break up the monotony of an average day. Another release for students comes in the form of a pep session. This gives everyone a chance to scream and yell to their hearts ' content. At any rate most people agree that if you ' re around a person that ' s in a silly mood you can ' t help but want to join in on some of the riotous lunacy yourself. Honest to goodness fun just seems to be contagious. So if you feel yourself slipping into the same old dull routine day in and day out, go ahead — cut the strings of the normality. Do something worth looking back on. Finding themselves with some free time on their hands, seniors Mark McKenzie. Tom Peconge. and Cliff Tanner let go by playing frisbee in the courtyard. Cooking is a good way for some people to release tension. Junior Dale Arroyo is more than ready to roll. Eating something big is another great way to break up the dull routine of an average day. Senior Troy Hackett and sophomore Laura Neumann demonstrate the way to eat a big sandwich. For senior Amy Stinson cutting loose means doing an Egyptian dance in the courtyard. — a % To add a little excitement to the Christmas assembly, the cheerleaders staged a little practical joke on a member of the freshman football team. This gave everyone a chance to cut loose with laughter. Playing — 25 The annual foreig n language party provided entertainment in the form of Christmas skits, performed by the students. Freshman cheerleaders Amy Arend and Rhonda Allen help load up the goods for Miss Virginia. Decorating the tree in the courtyard has become a tradition with the journalism department. Placing one of the last ornaments on the tree is senior Steve Burt. At the Christmas assembly Miss Virginia looks on as the students carry in the food and toys being donated to her. The Magic of X-mas Christmas seems to bring out the best in everyone. Maybe because the students and the faculty are looking forward to their much needed vacation or maybe it ' s just because there ' s something magical about the Christmas season. For the students of Elmhurst this season means the yearly Christmas assembly, tree decorating, orchestra and choir concerts, and parties. All of this adds up to a busy December for students and the staff. At the annual foreign language party skits are performed, carols are sung, and a variety of rich food is consumed. While the yearly drive to obtain toys and food for Miss Virginia gives the stu- dent body a chance to experience the magical feeling of giving to people who are less fortunate. As all of the festivities came to an end, the magical feeling of Christmas still lingered on. The decorated tree, complete with snow on its branches, stands in the courtyard waiting to be admired by all who pass by it. Student Council members added a little humor to the Christmas assembly by doing a short skit. A Look Back Fifty years of Elmhurst also means fifty years of fashion. Everything from completely tailored suits to bobby socks and bell bot- toms. We took a look at some old yearbooks to find out what has been in fashion throughout the years. We found that the fashion world is unpredictable. Fashions not only change from year to year but from decade to decade. A big market for fashion designers has always been the teenager, simply because the youth in this country are so clothes conscious. Fads and fashions come and go but then that gives us " A Lot to Look Back On. " Long hair and bell bottom pants were two big tads in the 70 ' s. Tailored outfits were not only flattering to women, but they were also very popular in the late 30 ' s and early 40 ' s. For guys the 50 ' s meant crew cuts, turned-up collars, and a " tough guy " image. For the girls the 50 ' s meant saddle shoes, bobby socks, and circle skirts. Flat shoes, middle ot the knee length skirts, and bouffant hairdos were all part of the 60 ' s fashion trend. Fashion — 23 Sign of the Times With the beginning of the 80 ' s there also came a brand new trend in the fashion industry. Bell bot- toms and mini skirts are now just a mere reflection of our past, while straight leg designer jeans and the prep- pie look become the sign of the times for the present and the future. Calvin Klein, Gloria Vanderbilt, and Evan Picone brought the fashion world the enormously successful business of designer jeans. There ' s not a day that goes by that you can ' t spot a pair of designer jeans on someone in the halls of Elmhurst. Probably the most popular jeans among the students are Calvin Kleins. Other jeans that are considered to be fashion- Izod shirts and sweaters are frequently seen on male and female Trojan bodies. Although they ' re not quite as expensive as designer jeans, Levis are every bit as popular with the students. able and popular with students, even though they aren ' t designer jeans, are Levis and Brittanias. One of the biggest fads of the 80 ' s is the preppie look complete with oxford shirts, Izod sweaters, chino pants and boat shoes. Because of the famous Izod sweaters the fashion industry had a little animal rivalry to con- tend with. Commercials and advertisements pitted the J. C. Penney fox against the Ayres Alligator. Who knows where the gar- ment industry will take us tomorrow. Maybe back to the bobby socks of the 50 ' s or maybe on to styles un- seen, but what we are wear- ing will always be a sign of the times. 9 Wearing an oxford shirt and a pair of stylish dress pants is junior Tim Gundakunst. Evan Picone ' s designer pants are sold in a variety of colors. Yellow, like many other bright colors, is considered to be the start of a fashion trend for the 80 ' s. I f ashi .■ Oberon (junior Tim Litch) advises his henchman Puck (senior Claire Wyneken) how to straighten out the mixed up lovers. Hermia (senior Ann Ver Wiebe) wonders " wherefore art thou, Lysander? " After their wedding Duke Theseus (senior Mark Calligan) and his new bride Lady Hippolyta (senior Patrina Green) watch the peasant players entertain. Dream Becomes a Reality March 6, 7, 8, 13, and 14 were the dates that a cast composed of 43 Trojans presented William Shake- speare ' s " A Midsummer Night ' s Dream, " as directed by Shelley Well- ngton and Andrea Herman. For many schools, putting on a Dlay such as this one would be only a (dream for the simple reason that it demands such a large cast and it ' s written and performed in 16th cen- tury English. It is also necessary to find actors and actresses who can ponvey the significant points of the )lot to the audience. In addition a arge number of student volunteers ire needed to help with the behind he scenes projects such as make- ip, lighting, props, sets, sound, and :ostumes, all mandatory for the pro- duction of this play. The students who were a part of he cast or crew made " A Midsum- mer Night ' s Dream " a reality for the udience.

The very first festival, in 1970, presented guest soloist Clark Terry. He was also the main attraction on Satur- day, April 11. 1981, but this year Clark Terry wasn ' t alone. Since he last per- formed at Elmhurst he has acquired a big band which he now tours with. Clark Terry and his Big Band gave an excellent performance on that April evening. They delighted the audience right until the very last note was played. Twelve years ago or today, it would seem that it just doesn ' t matter, the energy and enthusiasm put into a festival never goes unnoticed. Principal Richard Horstmeyer remarked after- wards that it was definitely " one of the finest Jazz Festivals we have had here at Elmhurst. " Elmhurst ' s music department was also proud to present the second an- nual vocal jazz portion of the festival on Friday, April 10. Afternoon clinics were held with vocal jazz director Phil Matt- son, who worked with the various jazz choirs to help them make im- provements in their music wherever they were needed. Friday evening the featured group was twelve singers called the Fanfairs, under the direction of Phil Mattson. Due to circumstances beyond our control, there were no pic- tures available for the vocal jazz por- tion of the festival. It was two glorious days and even- ings of nothing but superb JAZZ, JAZZ, and more JAZZ. Playing a sa xophone solo takes a lot of concentration. Senior Dwayne Heim demonstratesjust how much concentration Is needed. Jazz Festival — 35 Happy Anniversary " Look, honey, that ' s Joyce Smith. Fifty years ago she sat behind me in government class and in psychology class I sat in back of her. We had a lot of fun. Seeing her again brings back a lot of good memories. Come on, I want you to meet her. " In celebration of Elmhurst ' s 50th An- niversary on Saturday, March 21, EHS held an open house from 12 to 4 p.m. and an informal party in the evening for approximately 1200 former Tro- jans. When the alumni were reunited with their high school companions tears were shed, laughter echoed throughout the halls, but most of all the escapades of yesteryear were recalled. The evening festivities were held in the gym with five separate areas being designated for each ten year period. The Trojan Singers performed the Alma Mater and the " Fight Song " while the Guy Zimmerman band provided the entertainment for the rest of the evening by playing the " music of the One of the former graduating classes gathered in the lecture room to reminisce about their escapades of yesteryear. While looking at the class of ' 43 a former Trojan recalls her days at Elmhurst. A Golden Year Some honored guests included tt first principal of Elmhurst, Mr. Pa. Haller, and the very first Engliij teacher, Mrs. Letha Falls. All ir " Everything went great. People had tremendous time, and I couldn ' t ha ' been more pleased, " recalled Principl Richard Horstmeyer at the end of tfl evening. 50 years of education. 50 years work, 50 years of fun. 50 Golden Year 50 years of ELMHURST. 36 — 50th Anniversary Elmhurst ' s first principal enjoys the 50th Anniversary celebration held in March. The 50th Anniversary celebration gave former Trojans the chance to talk to their old teachers. Mr. Nicholas Werling stops in the hall to chat with a former pupil of his. 50th Anniversary — 37 Proms of the Past Throughout the years Elmhurst has had many proms. Whether they were held in the gym or the cafeteria or even when the students rented a hall to have it in, the memories of each particular prom can never be matched or forgot- ten. The girls always looked stunning in their pretty for- mals while the guys looked handsome in their rented tuxedos. Remember the pic- tures your parents took before you left the house? The place you ate dinner, whether it was at an elegant restaurant or just a cozy din- ner for two at home. Then finally, it was off to the prom to dance the night away. Then of course there was the main event of the even- ing, which was finding out who was to be the prom queen. There is only one prom queen each year but the number of girls on EHS prom courts varies throughout the years. Any number from 6 to 10 girls have been found on past and present courts. The people in attendance may change, clothes styles worn there may change, the music played there may change, and the prom theme may change but the essence of the prom ' s ex- istence will never change. In 1959 the prom could transform anybody into a king or queen for the evening. Tropical Moonlight was the prom theme in 1956. Queen Beverly McMullen only had six attendants compared to this year ' s nine. In 1957. Southern Fantasy was the prom theme Liz Wingett was S The coronation is always the main event of the evening; that is something that will never change. Anne Herber was crowned prom queen in 1961.

The climax of the evening came when Lisa DeRoche was crowned the new prom queen and Jim Yerrick was named as the second prom king in EHS history. An afterprom was held at the Shiloh Reception Hall from midnight to 4 a.m. This all added up to a very memorable and successful prom. Tables were set up throughout the room so that people had a place to eat and chat when they got tired of dancing. Newly crowned queen Lisa DeRoche takes her seat on the throne.

The Year 1981 . . . Lennon Dead at 40 On Dec. 8, 1981, millions of people all around the world felt a deep loss as former Beatle John Lennon was senselessly gunned down in front of his New York apartment. At the age of 40, the legendary John Lennon was dead. Mark David Chapman, an apparently deranged fan, was charged with the murder ' as the multitudes mourned. Shortly after the news of his death thousands of fans jammed record stores throughout the country just to buy his newest album, " Double Fantasy. " John Lennon may be gone but inevitably his music will live on forever. Hostages Are Freed Only minutes before Ronald Reagan took of- fice on Jan. 20, after 13 months in captivity fifty- two American hostages were released from their captors, the Iranians. The Iranians took American hostages because of the( United States support of the Shah of Iran. The hostages, their families, and all of theJ American people couldn ' t quite believe the fabulous news. The media con-l tinuously would report; some new found hope for the hostages only to have that hope shattered time 1 and time again. For; The Agony and the Ecstasy example, the rescue at- tempt, during the spring in 1980, that failed. The ordeal with the hostages did bring about one good thing. It united the American people as a strong and supportive na- tion once again. President Reagan On November 4, Republican Ronald Reagan became the for- tieth president of the United States. The vic- tory was a landslide. More than anything else it proved to other nations that America was together as a country and that we were positive who we wanted to be our Commander in Chief. Columbia Our Future In March, 1981, the United States launched the reusable space shut- tle which guaranteed us, once again, a position on the track alongside the Russians in the great space race. The space shuttle named Columbia was made to take satellites, military hardware, and even people into space and back. To Americans the renewed interest in the space program may be the answer to our prayers and the key to our future. Atlanta Cries for Its Kids To date 28 black children have been brutally murdered in Atlanta and no one seems to know who is doing it or how to stop it. Atlanta, along with the rest of the nation, mourns the loss of these children and awaits the day when it will be safe for the children of Atlanta to walk the streets alone. Two Assassination Attempts Barely over two months after he was inaugurated Ronald Reagan was shot and wounded in an assassination attempt made by John Hinckley Jr. Then on May 13 Pope John Paul II was wounded in the abdomen, left hand and the right arm during an assassination attempt on his life. Talk of greater gun con- trol has been surfacing because of all trje assassination attempts. Agony and Ecstasy Agony and Ecstasy alike brought the American people to the realization that as individuals our ef- forts are worthless. It ' s only when we work together as a team to achieve a common goal that our attempts become invincible. Seniors Will Be Seniors Fifty classes of SENIORS have climbed through the ranks at Elmhurst. From the 30 ' s to the 80 ' s the topics of SENIORS ' discussions haven ' t really changed, but the details within those topics have changed markedly. Dances, music, sporting events, boyfriends, girlfriends and most anything else you can think of were probably talked about by SENIORS at Elmhurst since the very first class. Awards, honors, picnics, assemblies and especially graduation have been subjects of SENIOR discussion for 50 years. Only subjects like these could be turned over and over in conversation for that long and not get boring. The main reason for these typical topics not getting stale is that they ' re always changing. From year to year the dances SENIORS dance, the music SENIORS listen to, the honors SENIORS receive, change. Even the solemn ceremony of graduation that is full of dignity and tradition has changed a little bit. SENIORS don ' t mind that music has changed from swing to rock to disco to punk or that dances have changed from the jitterbug to the jerk to the hustle to the pogo or that graduation was moved from school to the coliseum with a change from silk gowns to disposable ones. Music will always be music, dancing will always be dancing, graduation will always be graduation, and SENIORS will always be SENIORS. And they ' ll always have " A Lot to Look Back On. " Elmhursfs class of ' 81 in their last moments together. In 1975 the powderpuff football teams took their game very seriously as ! you can see from the determined looks on these girls ' faces. Being a senior meant being on top, and that is where these two seniors were last fall. Lisa Poorman had a major role in the fall play, while Kara Stewart took the female lead. What is Senior Spirit? It is a kind of craziness that only a certain type of person can produce. These four seniors, Ann VerWiebe, Chris Harris, Amy Esterline and Ruth Perjak, display this craziness while pigging- out at the Campus Life Burger Bash. 46 — Seniors Becoming A Senior of ' 81 ifty classes of seniors te gone through Elmhurst l;h School since it opened doors in 1930. Each class been different from the it one, but each class has a shared the feeling of JMIOR SENIORITY. The ti- senior, is a title which I class of ' 81 has earned. ut as each senior class fore it has climbed ough the ranks, so has I class of 81. Vho could ever forget the ohomore year? When we lally built up some con- ence in ourselves we had I face the humiliation of n ing the smallest float in I Homecoming parade. ce we recovered from EL we had to come up h an original booth for first Penny Arcade. The ibade went well, but our )th just couldn ' t compare h the juniors ' or the niors ' . iince we were excluded m the prom, it couldn ' t be included in our list of memorable events. So, with the election of next year ' s officers, we ended our first year at Elmhurst. After a long summer, we were more than ready to get back to school; after all, we were no longer at the bot- tom, we were now JUNIORS. Our junior year went very well. The Junior Senior Prom was a success, and we were beginning to feel like an actual part of Elmhurst We had almost completed our training for the next year ' s position. With the completion of the PSAT ' s and the election of our of- ficers, we were ready to as- cend the throne and to assume our new title. We, the class of ' 81, have climbed through the ranks. We are ready to carry out, to the fullest, the role of the 50th senior class of Elmhurst High School. Jeff Haynes, one of the few seniors on the tennis team this year, returns his opponent ' s ball.

Even though the class of ' 81 didn ' t win the float contest, there was no doubt that the hall competition belonged to the senior class. The high point of the week-long cele- brations wasn ' t the hall or the float competition, how- ever; it was the homecoming half-time activities. Sure, some people came to watch the game, but it was the coronation that brought in the multitudes. The red carpet had been rolled out, and the throne was in place. All waited with anticipation. Even though there were beautiful girls from each class on the platform, the eyes seemed to be watching the five senior girls who were hoping for the distinction of being crowned the 1980 Homecoming Queen of Elm- hurst High School. The moment finally came, " Ladies and gentlemen, let me be the first to congratu- late the new Homecoming Queen . . . Miss Lisa Poor- man. " hall was ' art.

The above paragraph is ebster ' s definition of a i endship, but if you were to i£k the seniors at EHS what fendship means, you would §t deeper, more personal eswers. ■The friendship that one sares with a classmate ges through a lot by the tne the two involved pcome seniors. A majority those relationships bcome even stronger after jaduation. After three years of grow- ing with someone, many memories are made, memo- ries which aren ' t easily for- gotten. Memories of football games, parties, dances, tests, Penny Arcades, or times when just being with someone was enough. These memories will never be for- gotten nor will the friend- ships that created these memories. Oh yes, there will be times when these memo- ries will be placed in the back of the mind due to new friends and acquaintances, but there will also be times when a little spark may just ignite an old flame. During body building, senior Scott Sims gives a helping hand to his " cuz " friend, and fellow senior Kent Sims. Sharing a laugh after a pep session, seniors Renisea Turner and Drew Frey show what being a senior is all about. Trying to recapture a little bit of childhood, seniors Cliff Tanner and Tom Peconge participate in a wheelbarrow race. INVOLVEMENT: A Common Senior Word Of all the words that a sen- ior adds to his vocabulary by the time he graduates, the one that stands out is the word involvement. Seniors this year were involved in almost every club or activity at EHS. Their par- ticipation ranged from mem- bership in marching and jazz bands to football, basketball, wrestling, tennis, and track teams. They also played important roles in the Afro- American, DECA, OEA, AFS, Speech and Student Council clubs. I guess that being a part of what is happening just seems to be more important during the senior year. Robert Dickson, the only senior on the basketball team this year, suc- cessfully " sinks one " at the sec- tional game. DAVIS, MIKE DEATON. PAM DEGRANDCHAMP, JON — Wrestling 1, 2, 3; Letterman 2,3.

DURNELL, LORI EITER, DAN What the Future Holds For the Class of ' 81 For the past 50 years, Tro- jan seniors have had to make a certain decision in their life. That decision, what to do after graduation has been approached with excitement as well as fear. The exciting part is the thought of life with no parents, no curfews, and no one to report in to. Sounds like the perfect Utopia. But there have also been feel- ings of insecurity. The com- mon senior experiencing the normal " I ' m free " feelings has questions such as will I make it or am I gonna starve to death, running through his head. This year, the seniors of Elmhurst will be heading in all directions. Roughly 20% of the class will be on its way to various campuses across the country, while the rest of the class will jump into the military, the working world, marriage, or life as a bum. But whatever the members of the class of ' 81 plan to do after graduation, you can bet the decision wasn ' t made without a lot of contemplation. Just one of the many alternatives that a graduating senior has is depicted in this cartoon. 54 — Seniors v v» {$ ft - . 4 FADUS, KEVIN FALBA, MIKE — A.V. Club 1.2; DECA3.

SPRINGBREAK: It ' s a Florida Affair SPRINGBREAK ... the lere word brings about noughts of excitement to ie minds of seniors. And rhy shouldn ' t it? After all, a snior ' s sprmgbreak is his ist big adventure, his last scape before he closes the oor of high school and pens the door which leads 3 the future. | To many seniors, spring- reak means only one thing . . FLORIDA! and Florida leans seven to ten days of nlimited fun. It also means beautifully bronzed bodies wrapped in only skimpy beach attire. When asked why most seniors choose Florida, the common answer was the sunshine. People just can ' t seem to get enough of those golden rays, and nothing, not even soar- ing gas prices, could stand in the way of a determined senior. A typical day went something like this. 10:30 am.: Wake up with just enough time to get suit on and to get to the beach before pth. begins. 5:00 pm.: Leave beach, go home, shower, and dress for a night on the town. 5:30-?: Eat, drink, and party your cares away. Now to the common per- son, this schedule may seem boring, but to a senior who is taking the last fling of his senior year, a week in Florida is the most. pth.: prime tanning hours.

I Senioritis at Elmhurst Reaches Epidemic Stages epidemic proportion at EHS this year, and it is not get- ting any better. It has no mercy and almost every senior is affected. The symp- toms of the disease are easy to detect. They are 1) cons- tant boredom and 2) the " I don ' t care attitude. " Some seniors don ' t even realize that they have the disease until it is too late. Until more research is done about this merciless ail- ment, it will go without say- ing that as long as there are seniors, there will be cases of senioritis. For the common everyday snior, it begins during the purth quarter, but for those pniors who have the more dvanced stages of the sease, it begins at the end X the junior year. It is a ckness that has only one Lire, and that cure can only I administered on one pcasion.

Seniors — 59 A ' One in a Million 7 Evening There is a night that stands out in the minds of all high school students. It is a night that is first class all the way. It is a night that freshmen and sophomores dream about, and a night that juniors and seniors await with high hopes. It is the night of the Junior Senior prom. Out of all the activities that go on throughout the year, the prom is the one that rates at the top in a senior ' s mind; second only to graduation, of course. One thing that makes a senior ' s prom so special is the fact that the juniors do all the work. They are the ones putting the prom on for the seniors. But a senior ap- preciates this because they remember the work that was put into the prom last year. One last thing that makes the prom so special is the fact that the glamor of the evening adds a special touch to the climactic end of this chapter in a senior ' s life. 1980 prom king.

The senior honors pro- gram this year was at the end of April. This night was set aside to honor those members of the senior class who achieved gradepoint averages of 9.0 and better. There were roughly 35 students being honored with certificates of achievement while the valedictorian and salutatorian received trophies. Although the pro- gram was very nice, the real glamour came with Recogni- tion Night at the end of May. During Recognition Night, the seniors donned their caps and gowns and march- ed in. All were curious about who would receive the top awards that the school gives out. Among the awards are the top departmental recognition for scholastic excellence, the David Stein award for citizenship, presented to Thomas Filchak and Lisa Poorman, and the Blanket award for outstanding performance in athletics, which went to Conette Saylor. Although these two even- ings were special in themselves, they both only prepared the seniors for the night of all nights . . . GRADUATION. • 1 c% -J 1 1 SMITH, DIANE SMITH. DAVID SMITH.

Tradition There is one day of the year that all seniors look for- ward to with much anticipa- tion. That day this year fell on May 15th. On that day this year, more than three fourths of the senior class was absent from school. No, there wasn ' t an epidemic but there might as well have been one. May 15th this year was the unofficial senior field trip commonly referred to as Senior Skip Day. This year, the class of ' 81 decided to explore the wilds in one of Indiana ' s state parks, so they headed up to Pokagon. It didn ' t matter that there were clouds in the sky and that it looked like it could storm any minute, all that mattered was having a good time. Once at Pokagon. the seniors regressed to their childhood days by playing games of " Duck Duck Goose " and " Red Rover Red Rover. " All in all, the day was perfect. After all there is no better cure for senioritis than a day away from the books. WELLMAN, MARK WEST, JON — Football 1,2. JUSTUS. ROBERT B. — Red Cross Club 2. 3, 4; Softball 3. 4; Phi-Chem Club 3. 4.

From here they will take their places on the bottom, but not without experiencing the evening that they have dreamed about for the past 12 years. That evening, of course, is GRADUATION. All of the preparations had been completed. The rehearsal went smoothly, and the excitement could be felt everywhere. But once the whole class was assembled, the mood sobered. For some, the sobering ef- fect came with the realiza- tion that our high school days were finished and that this was the last time that we would all be together as one group. BUT ONCE WE ALL MARCHED IN . . . jf 5 ? .- " VV Pronounce You Graduates AND LISTENED TO THE SPEAKERS. . .

At first adjusting to a totally new school and organizing classes, cumculums, activities and everyday schedules took up time for the teachers and students alike. These students and faculty in the 30 ' s and 40 ' s had the responsibility for creating and upholding the many traditions that are contained in Elmhurst ' s history. They passed them down from class to class as the seniors graduated. In 1958 a major upheaval made a big change in the routine at EHS. As a senior hi gh school in the Fort Wayne Community Schools, Elmhurst contained only grades 10-12. Faculty and underclassmen both had a lot of adjusting to do after this major change. The school system gave them about twenty years for this adjustment before they changed Elmhurst back to a four year high school in 1978. Underclassmen, along with the faculty, for fifty years have been the glue that holds EHS together and this year ' s population of juniors, sophomores, freshmen, teachers and administration are no different from the rest. They could only be classified as more special. They have not only upheld the traditions that have lasted fifty years but they ' ve added their own very special touch. That makes " A Lot to Look Back On " for the underclassmen and faculty. Punk day during spirit week brought out three punks in the junior class. One of Mr. Sinks ' classes in the 50s shows how well teachers and students work together.

Weekends Were Made for Trojan: After finally waking up from the Mon- day morning blues, and recovering from those Tuesday tests, Wednesday seemed a lot better because it was already half way to Friday. And everybody knew what Friday meant . . . Weekend! For many, weekends meant spending free time getting better at that favorite activity or maybe just cruising Time Corners with your bud- dies. And of course, if there were par- ties going on, everyone found them. Others couldn ' t wait to take off to the challenging ski slopes, while some of the more faithful stayed back to watch their favorite Trojan in action. But come Sunday, rain or shine, it was time again to crack the books and finish speeches, compositions, and other assignments. And of course, look for- ward to another super weekend. Giving her final farewell to Elmhurst is junior Gail Meredith, as she prepares for an exciting weekend with the band.

Even classrooms held a certain amount of who ' s dating who chit-chat. Even though inflation was reaching all time highs in the U.S. this didn ' t distract juniors from discussing their own teenage crises of acne, crooked teeth, no prom date, driver ' s licenses, bad breath, and dandruff. You were out of it if Walter Cronkite ' s leaving CBS took precedent over wanting longer vacations, new wheels, and easier tests. Who cared that President Reagan Remembering she forgot to study for her history exam, junior Chris Baker expresses concern. was addressing the country on TV, as long as " Soap, " " Dallas, " and " General Hospital " weren ' t cancelled because of it. It ' s not to s ay that juniors were total- ly oblivious to the rest of the world. Yellow ribbons, letters, prayers, and most of all government support were efforts put forth in bringing home the 50 American hostages from Iran. On a more local level, the rumors of Elmhurst closing at the end of ' 82 merited the concern of many students, especially the soon to be juniors. So maybe sometimes important events were overlooked and conversa- tion seemed trivial, but in high school you have to be realistic; who needs the wrinkles when acne can suffice?

Today ' s fashions seem to be expand- ing more now than ever. It used to be if you had a pair of Levis on, you were in style. Now starting with the head, Bo Derek seemed to be pretty popular with the daring, while pastel barrettes, headbands, and ribbons were for those wishing to be a little less obvious. When winter arrived, it was a switch from Izod shirts to button downs, and then turtle necks and monogramed sweat- ers. The bright pink, yellow, and green corduroy pants seemed to make winter a little bit brighter. Mom could no longer just buy you a new skirt any- more; it had to be wool, plaid, and have a coordinating sweater. For those wish- ing to be more comfortable, but still wanting a dressy appearance, out came the skirts, socks, and penny loaf- ers. Calvin Klein, Gloria Vanderbilt, Chic and faithful Levis made a hit for the jean wearers, of course with an Aig- ner belt and purse. Adidas and Nikes were definitely a run ahead of the long ago Red Ball Jets. K-mart shoes could no longer be hidden, because all of the brand name shoes either had their sig- nature or tag in plain sight. Socks also had their Izod markings, but I ques- tioned my friend as to why she should waste her money on them when no one could see them anyway. I was informed she had gotten a new sweater from Sears and was destined to try to remove the alligator from her socks to put on her sweater. It ' s taking me awhile, but I think I ' m finally learning how to keep in style from head to toe.

As I was walking to fourth period the other day, I realized when I passed a " 90% angel 10% ? " that I was probably the only kid in the school without a printed T-shirt expressing myself. Oh, of course I had my Purdue sweatshirt iust like everyone else had their Ball U, Notre Dame and Ohio State. And I wasn ' t planning a trip anytime soon so I wouldn ' t exactly get a Daytona Beach, Phoenix, Arizona, or Bahama T-shirt; it would have to be more like Ft. Wayne, jndiana. Too plain! Thoughts and say- ings flashed through my mind . . . 3heap Trick — too suggestive ,3aby Soft — I have dry skin The more I know men, the more I like my dog — Not true My boyfriend went to California and all he got me was this stupid shirt — I didn ' t have a boyfriend Survivor of the Blizzard of ' 78 — Not selling them any more. If nobody ' s perfect, then I must be nobody — Too vain " Jock " — I couldn ' t run a block with- out fainting. Capricorn, Pisces, Aquarius ... — I for- got my sign. Foxy Lady — My sister talked me out of it. This Shirt is for the Birds — I was afraid the birds might take advantage of it. 10! — A joke! Football players do it in the endzone — I didn ' t know what the " it " was they were doing. Carter in ' 80 — Reagan was already elected. Shh . . . Baby sleeping — I wasn ' t preg- nant. Kiss me, I ' m Irish — I ' m Polish. I was finally beginning to realize why I didn ' t have a T-shirt. It was a talent to be able to pick the right one out and then have the guts to wear it. The next day I wore my new shirt to school, and I still can ' t figure out why nobody noticed it with my name scribbled across the back.

But sometimes looking back at what was is difficult when pain and sadness are involved. Realizing that things wer- en ' t so great at times isn ' t an easy thing to do. What has to be remem- bered is that everybody has bad times as well as good. We started the year by not only los- ing the Homecoming game, but that same night a car accident led to the death of junior Matt Rondot. This mis- fortune left many upset, but with the help of family and friends things seemed to fall back into place once again. Our next major school activity was the Snowball. This year instead of hav- ing it at the Lantern, it was held at good ol ' Elmhurst. As we moved on through the winter, in order to raise money for the prom, the juniors sponsored a fac- ulty-vs-students basketball game. What better way to get back at the teachers for detentions, pop quizzes, and smoke-ups. So what if the final score ended in favor of the faculty? If we had won, it probably would have meant more homework. The junior class kept us on our toes (or at least on our feet) in March with a celebration dance for Elmhurst ' s 50th anniversary. April showers might bring May floii ers, but it also brought spring brea! ; What a relief. And then came May. I year long, the juniors were planning ttl prom and the time finally approache Boys ' mothers urged their sons to g while the girls ' mothers took thcl daughters shopping for dresses. Tux and corsages were ordered and ticke purchased. And all the work put out | the night was well worth the effort. It came to be said that there we ; special times right alongside the b times but sometimes it might ha taken an extra eye to see them. " Wasted Days and Wasted Knights " was the theme for this year ' s Homecoming. Juniors dem- onstrate their art work during the pep session float competition. Showing their spirit during Homecoming senior Danny Nellems and junior Doretha Freeman arrive in their best attire. During the Christmas season Mrs. Lowrey ' s bul- letin board simply told it like it was. " Juniors are the stars of Elmhurst ' s Christmas tree.

Last year I looked in the mirror. I was crying. It was because I fell off my new red tricycle. Or so it seemed like last year. Last month I looked in the mirror. I was smiling. It was because I had found my first puppy love. Or so it seemed like last month. Last week I looked in the mirror. I was excited. It was because I had got- ten my first pair of high heels. Or so it seemed like last week. Yesterday I looked in the mirror. I was nervous. It was because I would be attending a huge public high school. Or so it seemed like yesterday. Today I looked in the mirror. I was in seventh heaven. I would be attending my first prom. Or so it seemed like today. Tomorrow I don ' t think I ' ll look in the mirror. I ' m afraid my long ago wish of high school quickly passing will have come true. Juniors — 85 Sensational Sophomore Spirit Soars " I agree with the headline, the sophomore class really does have a lot of spirit, " Shawn Mitchell, class presi- dent, stated. " The class gives a lot of support to me in all of the projects we ' ve been in- volved in. They really work hard, and we get things done and have fun while doing them, " she continued. Once again, the class of ' 83 sank the other floats in the Homecoming float competition. This year their winning theme was " The Knights don ' t have a prayer. " In addition to their satisfac- tion of taking first place, thirty dollars was awarded towards their treasury both years they have attended Elmhurst. Sophomores participated en- thusiastically during the Homecoming week. Evening events such as the burger bash, volleyball games, ping- pong tournaments, float meetings, and, of course, the game, teemed with sophomores. Day events, like hat and sock day, ., Cowboys and Indians day, dress day, punk rock day, red-n-gray ar sucker day, court elections, and th pep session brought out sophomoi spirit as well. Julie Burt, Pam Stewart, and Sa; Weaver were elected to th sophomore Homecoming court. Th were escorted by lettermen Jeff Krus Gary Contreraz, and Dalen Spaw. Senior Lisa Poorman was crown Homecoming queen. Laughing and appearing to enjoy their roles on their class float, sophomores Tina Leeper and Scott Jones ride in the Homecoming float competition.

Sophomores — 87 Sophs Add Experience As Leaders To have a class that performs well, you must also have competent leaders, for leadership is a very impor- tant quality in any class. Shawn Mitchell was the leader of the sophomore class. Scott Jones served as vice-president, Tina Leeper as secretary-treasurer, and Jamie Sheffer as social chairman. Becoming a class officer, a student council member, a cheerleader, a member of the homecoming court, or taking part in any group from Elmhurst carries with that honor much respon- sibility, for you are representing EHS spirit.

For the third year in a row, freshmen have been a part of EHS, and over the three years, many changes in their character have taken place. One of the biggest changes is the number of students participating in extra-curricular activities. The class of ' 82, as freshmen, had low participation fig- ures. The class of ' 83 ventured into many activities. However, this year a freshman boom began! Tons became involved in activities offered at EHS.

Another event which included freshmen was the third annual Snowball Dance on the 21st of February. Approximately 115 EHS students danced to records played by Dave Can- naday in the EHS cafeteria. The event was attended by many freshmen. Although the dance was not as well- attended as last year, George Tricolas, student council advisor, said, " I think those who went did have a good time.

I dreamed I ' d studied for my history test. But not only that, I also passed it with an A+. I realized it was a dream when I awoke with a terrible pain in my left side. I had once again fallen asleep with my history book, try- ing to study for a test. Boy, was Coahran right when he said history will always be a part of you. After finally recovering from my history book bruise (Mom claimed it wasn ' t a good enough reason to stay home) I figured if I wore jeans and a sweatshirt to school I ' d have fifteen minutes to study for Kolin ' s literature test. And if I didn ' t eat breakfast or curl my hair, I would have that definitely needed half hour to cram for my algebra quiz. But then if I rode the bus to school and got there early, I could go to the library to finish my psychology research paper due the next day. On the other hand I was tempted to find out who invented tests and kill their now living ancestors. It sure felt like a Monday again! Mom tried to tell me I ' d regret not staying home Friday night to study, but who can resist a toga party? My plans for studying all day Saturday were shot when I woke up with the worst-feeling headache ever. And the best I could do for my studying Sunday was pray in church that I might not flunk out of school. I knew that was a lot to ask but then I figured God owed me one. After all, I had gotten out of bed for the noon service. It ' s like I told my Dad. If it weren ' t for tests I ' d surely be passing all my classes with straight A+ ' s. It ' s likely history teacher Mr. Nicholas Werllng gets his points across during his daily lectures. Finding her first year of teaching at Elmhurst very amusing is art teacher Mrs. Connie Walburn.

Faculty -— 109 A Little Loving Never Forgotten The faculty, like the student body, has many experiences to reminisce about during their years at Elmhurst. The teachers have their ups and downs just like everyone else. A great loss for not only the faculty but everyone here at Elmhurst was the death of a very fine teacher. On Saturday, April 11, 1981, a second heart attack took the life of Mr. Elden Stoops. Mr. Stoops was a very caring and dedicated man who had taught in the business depart- ment at Elmhurst for the last 32 years. His cheery smile and loving heart will be well remembered by all of us here at Elmhurst. When things begin to get hectic in the publica- tions room, it ' s not unusual to find advisor Jane Hoylman giving a helping hand in the dark room.

Finding Friends Sure they give detentions, pop quizzes, book reports and finals, but many students find their teachers as true friends. When school problems, family problems, or even personal pro- blems arose it was sometimes easier to confide in a favorite teacher than a peer. Through writing, speeches, and attendance, teachers got to know their students, some even better than their own parents. Maybe an extra push was needed to get someone back on the right track, and usually the support came from a teacher. So as the year progressed and students got to know their teachers, and teachers got to know their students, those adults patrolling halls and handing out assignments were often cailed " friends.

Not sure whether he knows the right answer or not. freshman Matt Foreman contemplates rais- ing his hand. 114 — Faculty A Special Sort of Teacher A special new class was begun at Elmhurst this year. With Mary Rosman as their teacher, eleven freshmen and two sophomores attended the Hearing Impaired class located in the English hall. Before coming to Elmhurst, Miss Rosman taught Deaf Education at Por- tage Middle School for three years. Because the feeder school of Portage was where the students came from, it was felt that the friendship built up in that setting would be a good emotional basis for the students coming into a high school. " Teaching the deaf requires much more planning since each student ' s schedules and lessons are individualiz- ed, " explained Miss Rosman, " but my youngest sister is deaf and it feels very natural for me to work with these kids. " A normal day consisted of arriv- ing at school at 6:15 a.m. and leaving sometimes at 9:30 p.m. with work for planning still to be done. The students learned math, English, science, health and drivers education in their classroom, and were involved in shop, art, typing, gym and human development, where an interpreter was always present, with the rest of the student body. Sports was also a part of some of the students ' lives. Matt Foreman par- ticipated in football, wrestling, and baseball. Robin Mills was on the girls ' track team, while Amanda Sneed was a manager for the basketball team. Wade Travis was a part of this year ' s wrestling team. Not only was a special group of students added to Elmhurst this year, but along with them they brought a special teacher. A big asset to Miss Rosman this year was her assistant Kay Yoder. Catching the information on an assignment sometimes called for a little extra attention as Randy Lothamer and Mike McCune show.

I know they don ' t have Micky ' s fries, or Burger Chef ' s shakes but you gotta admit their tacos aren ' t half bad. And of course fifty cents sure beats the two dollars plus gas money, not to mention the risk of getting caught. Although it may not have often been said, this year ' s kitchen staff was definitely appreciated when 11:30 rolled around. The complaints of hunger pains and growling stomachs stopped when a hot lunch and a steam- ing sweet roll were purchased. The smiling faces of the workers made lunch even more enjoyable. And if anyone had forgotten a holiday, it was soon remembered when they arrived in the cafeteria to see the women in their red and green for Christmas, pink for Valentine ' s day, green for St. Patrick ' s day and so on. Besides being a big asset to Elmhurst, another group that seemed to add a touch of spirit was the cus- todial staff. Jammed lockers didn ' t seem half so upsetting when the friendly custodian arrived with tools in hand to fix it. And who else do you think kept the restrooms sparkling, fixed broken windows, and removed graffitti from the walls? So it seems to be quite obvious that without the custodians and kitchen staff, Elmhurst just wouldn ' t be Elmhurst. mr ■ — —ni„, | ■ ■ Kitchen Staff — Front Row: Sharon Miller.

Faculty — 117 Organizational room was never so much fun as it was back in 1949. Academically Speaking Since Elmhurst began fifty years ago, the academic program has grown and changed to meet the needs of students living in a growing and changing community. When Elmhurst first opened in 1931 the curriculum consisted of classes such as the basic readin ' , ' ritin ' , and Yithmetic. Since then, it has grown to include extensive classes concerning chemistry, mathematics, foreign languages, physical education, music, and more. Computer technology was added to the course of studies at EHS in 1977. Career training for many students is found in programs such as RVC, which began in 1971. Exploratory teaching and community involvement help students get a taste of a chosen career during the normal school day. Elmhurst has always demanded and always will demand high academic standards from Trojans. Academically speaking, Trojans have " A Lot to Look Back On. " . 18 — Academics 1981 Head Field Marshal Todd Young leads the Mighty Marching Trojans. MARCHING TfiOMNS After fifteen years, changes are evident in EHS gym classes. P.E. Classes Keep Up with the Times From the days of blue, bloomer-like gym suits to the permissable days when a simple t-shirt and pair of shorts will suffice, Elmhurst has come a long way. In the past fifty years of our school ' s history, the physical education department of EHS has developed into an important part of the curriculum. In 1973, body building became an added elective. Hosting more equipment than any other city school, Elmhurst ' s weight room has been a great advantage for several athletic teams who train throughout the school year. During the summer of 1978, construction, which in- cluded a girls ' gym, a mirrored room for dance and gymnastics, as well as locker room facilities, was com- pleted. The new accommodations led the way to en- tirely new aspects of physical education. The most significant change came in 1978 when students got their first taste of co-ed gym classes. With mixed emotions, the girls of EHS invaded the boys ' gym to participate in the regular activities. As in the past, many changes have occurred in the 1980-81 school year. With the recent increase of the emphasis on physical fitness, the physical education department has contributed much to keep the mighty Trojans in tip-top shape. Conquering the lat machine during body building class is junior Don Stein Mrs. Sue Dowling instructs freshman Scott Laisure on scoring a ten match. 120 — Physical Education ith an intense look of determination, senior m Roberts executes a military press.

Physical Education — 121 Teachers Leave: Tradition Remains Jazz is a long standing tradition at Elmhurst. The jazz pro- gram, which includes the Trojan Singers and the jazz bands, was initiated in 1947 by Mr. Lester Doell and has been going strongly since. Next year the EHS jazz program will ex- perience a tew changes due to the departure ot both directors. Mr. Al Schmutz, director ot the Trojan Singers, retires after 12 years at Elmhurst. Mr. Schmutz directed the Trojan Singers during performances at various school and com- munity functions throughout the year. Under the direction of Mr. Robert Snyder, who after four years is leaving EHS to go into business, Jazz Band I has been the recipient of many awards. The year they received a Division I rating at NISBOVA and participated in several festivals throughout the state. Jazz Band II consists of students interested in training for the advanced band. They too claimed honors including se- cond place at the Kokomo Haworth Jazz Festival. Jazz Band II member, freshman David Miller, performs a flute solo.

The Trojans Go Marching On More members is just one change in the marching band since the 1940 ' s. In recent years, Elmhurst ' s marching band has gotten away from the " Big 10 " style of marching and adopted a military format. Music became the emphasis rather than complicated marching formations. This year the Trojans debuted their new marching uniforms at the Homecoming game. Their updated ap- pearance accented their recently acquired style of music and marching. Various sales including pizza, cheese and sausage and cowboy hats funded the purchase. The Music Boosters, consisting of dedicated parents, also aid- ed in money-making projects. Highlighting the year was a weekend at the Music Bowl in Chicago where the band performed at Soldier Field. The band also spent a fun-filled day at the theme park, Great America. At the State contest, EHS came within points of winning a first place rating. The Elmhurst Guard, which has given up the pom-pons for flags and rifles, was a big part of the band. The girls also competed in three competitions without the band as a backup. In April, they captured first place at Prairie Heights High School. Junior Ann Boyer was commended as outstanding performer of the day. Junior Becki Kreamer joins the percussion section in keeping perfect rhythm.

Cooking and Clothing for Co-eds In early days, home economics was regarded as a class for girls and only girls. As times change so do many long accepted concepts. Nowadays, guys are a common sight in home ec classes. Many males have realized that a general knowledge in cooking and sewing may be advantageous in the future. In order to learn basic techniques and ad- vanced skills in these areas, young men have signed up for such classes as foods, creative foods, clothing and needlecraft and have proved quite successful. Cooking appliances and techniques have changed since 1945. Instructor Mrs. Sue Owen lets her apron do her talking.

Besides the daily classroom routine, the German, French and Spanish classes play word games, board races, and other enjoyable means of learning their languages. Every foreign language class is given the opportunity to take a field trip to attend a program related to the language they are studying. Each year, the whole department unites for a Christmas party. At the party, the different classes have a chance to sing songs, present skits, and reveal a little bit of the respective cultures. In the art department, students are always pushed to the potential of their artistic ability. In some of the classes the students are required to do a portfolio consisting of sket- ches done on their leisure time. This year they created the charmi ng Christmas angels used to decorate the cafeteria. Taking pictures, running film, and printing their selections are the expected work of the photography classes. These students may choose to enter their work in a scholastic art competition and also a contest at Saint Francis College. A French version of " The Night Before Christmas " highlights the AFS foreign language Christmas party. Seen are freshmen Carol Frankewich, Karen Stier, Ed Lehman, and sophomore Tammy Petersen. During class, sophomore Laura Ross was elected to interpret the Spani magazine.

The Purpose of Industrial Arts In 1937, the purpose of the industrial arts classes was to create a good spirit among students, to provide social activity, to study and discuss modern industrial problems, and to provide helpful suggestions for vocational guidance. In the 1960 ' s, the purpose of the classes was to give an opportunity for boys to learn the fundamentals and to broaden their knowledge and perfect their skills in woodworking, metalworking, and mechanical drawing. In the 1980 ' s, the purpose of the classes is to offer as wide a variety of learning experiences as possible. Now classes contain females as well as males. During class the students draw, design their dream house, file, saw, sand, invent, and create — providing tangible evidence that industrial arts answer a real need at Elmhurst. Deciding what to do first, senior Robert Wine looks puzzled. Selecting the right size ratchet is junior Ron Fmton. Industrial Arts afety is a ma|or part of industrial arts.

Exceptional Programs Exploratory teaching exposes students to the art ot teaching. The students spend time assisting elementary school teachers with their classes. This in turn exposes them to a position in the class room — a transition from student to teacher. Com- ■nunity involvement lets a student become nvolved in a particular occupation. The students work at places like the State -lospital and Training Center, a bank, or an attorney ' s office, where the students see if they like the potential career. R.V.C. (Regional Vocation Center) has classes outside of Elmhurst. The students attending R.V.C. do their work at old Cen- tral High School downtown, or on " site " meaning at Ravenscroft, an automobile center, or a construction site. These students put in hard work to learn their trade. Playing teacher, senior Jamie Davis reads a story to the kindergarten class. Through the exploratory teaching program, senior Amy Stinson helps fourth graders with their work. Taking a break with one of the residents at the State Hospital and Training Center, senior Patty Free learns from her involvement in the community- Community Involvement Exploratory Teaching — 135 Today ' s Events, Tomorrow ' s History During the fifty year history of Elmhurst High School, a new chapter has been written in for history books. World War II, Viet Nam, the elections of new presidents, the moon walk, and Watergate were a few events making the headlines. This year another page was written. We rejoiced for the return of the 52 Americans held hostage in Iran for 444 days. We saw Republican Ronald Reagan elected as the 49th President of the United States and later grieved over the attempted assassination. EHS has been around for many events which in some way affected our country. This year, as in the others, we recorded many events and now we turn the page and start again.

Every student that attends Elmhurst spends at least three years in an English classroom. During the year, freshmen tackle the never ending sentences that need correcting. Sophomores try to digest the weekly spelling tests that contain gigantic words. This year the juniors are left to fight off another year of grammar plus the never ending pages of poems. Seniors are left with the option of taking a semester of composition or creative writing. All of the time spent in the English classrooms from year to year has helped every student become grammatically correct in speech, sentence formation, and uv coarse speling.

This form of communication (vas used by primitive men, monks that vere sworn to silence, South American Indians to talk to other tribes, and nost important communication for the leaf. The language consists of over 1,500 different signs including a complete ilphabet. The first school for the deaf was founded by Abbe de L ' Eppe in 1760. The students in our deaf ed classes join other classes besides the subjects they study in their homeroom. The classes they attend are gym, shop, typ- ing, art, and one student has a human development class. We should be proud to think that we are lucky enough to have these stu- dents included in our student body. Sign language is a major part of freshman Laura Graham ' s life. Participating in class, freshman Sherri Paul learns the value of money. Deaf-Ed — 141 Junior Steve Brezette processes the data he collected. In the 1940 ' s. as In the 1980 ' s, science students learn through experiments. As Elmhurst Expands, Science Study Grows Although many aspects of the science department have undergone changes, an observing eye and the ability to perform experiments are still necessary for students. In 1964-65, an addition to the school, which includ- ed a science wing, allowed for a more detailed study of science related classes. Benefitting from the expan- sion were physics, chemistry, ecology, earth science, and biology. Modifications in the classroom laboratories as well as advancements in scientific knowledge and studies have had and will continue to have effects on the science department at EHS. Observing a chemical reaction are juniors Curt Syndram and Wenij Novitsky. 142 — Science Senior Troy Hackett completes the calculations as senior Jill Reinhart looks over the results.

Science — 143 Math Touches Lives Whether it was computing the minutes until the end of first period, counting the change after purchasing a sweet roll in the cafeteria, or averaging the test scores for the first nine weeks, mathematics came into play in our day to day lives. Elmhurst ' s math department offered a variety of classes ranging from the fundamentals taught in General Math to Mr. Phil Habegger ' s unforgettable Advanced Algebra class to the challenges of advanced math such as Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry, and Calculus. Computer terminals were introduced to EHS in 1977 add- ing computer math classes to the curriculum. The popular Introduction to Computer Math class and the advanced class gave students the opportunity to learn to program computers, write programs, and even play games on the ter- minals such as Hang Man. Senior Troy Hackett listens intently to Mr. Richard Poor ' s Analytic Geome- try lecture. Ms. Julie Hollmgsworth assists freshman Joe Perjak. i • • ' ♦» ' !

Summing Up the Business Years During the past 50 years, the business department has widened its class choice, and has modernized the equip- ment. From year to year, the atmosphere has changed along with the teachers and the color of the rooms. Through the years the department has stayed with the manual typewriters, but it has also included electric ones. In the year 1949, the business classes were typing, bookkeep- ing, and shorthand. The classes now include business law, accounting, and general business. With the expansion and various changes that have taken place in the department, we have the chance to produce the accountants, secretaries, and businessmen the world needs. 146 — Business The lone typist, junior Forrest Burke, works over- time to complete assignments.

Elmhurst students stayed closer ) home and entertained each other. When it got too rowdy ir the Trojans ' parents, the kids moved to school and •eated the clubs. Throughout the 50 years at Elmhurst, there have been ubs for every interest. In the ' 30 ' s, there were groups like le Palette and Brush Club for avid art students. For writers lere was the publication staff of either the Advance or the ilibrum. The Regina Domi club was ideal for home ec udents; the name means " Queen of the Home. " Other ubs that flourished in the ' 30 ' s were the debate team, the dustrial Arts Club, the Glee Club, the Rifle Club, the ramatics Club, the Commercial Club, GAA, and the Ger- ' anClub. Some of these organizations are still in operation while, as e student body changed and grew, so did the variety and :e of clubs at Elmhurst. Some of the clubs that have been Ided to the roster are Student Council, Campus Life, :CA, Quill and Scroll, AFS, the Afro- American Club, COE, wling Club, and other service and supportive groups. Surely any Trojan who has ever participated in an EHS Jb has built leadership, friendship and more of " A Lot to ' Ok Back On.

Council in 12th Year The Elmhurst Student Council has played an important role in the school for at l east 12 years. There have been some rocky times, but most of the time things run smoothly. Whether it be Homecoming week, the Penny Arcade. Miss Virginia Assembly, Valentine ' s Day or the Snowball dance, the Student Council is always trying to make things more enjoyable for the student body. The Homecoming festivities were a little different this year due to the fact that EHS is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Dr. William Anthis, Superintendent of the Fort Wayne Community Schools, and Mayor Winfield Moses were on hand to help in our celebration. The Penny Arcade wasn ' t as suc- cessful this year as it had been in previous years, but it still gave all clubs a chance to participate jointly. The annual Miss Virginia Assembly was held and the students responded well by bringing in clothes and toys for the needy. February 14th gave a lot of council members a chance to get out of class for the distribution of carna- tions. The biggest thrills were the looks on the faces of those unsus- pecting students when their name was called to come and get the " red " carnation. It was also funny to see those that were so sure they were getting a carnation only to find that they weren ' t. Red carnations meant " I love you, " pink carnations meant " I like you, " and white carnations meant " I want to get to know you. " The 3rd annual Snowball dance was not as popular among the stu- dents as it has been in previous years, but those who attended enjoyed the change of pace. It gave students a chance to dress up for a change or for a " special someone. " Student Council officers for the year 1980-81 were: President, Tom Filchak; Vice-president, Ann Boyer; and Secretary-treasurer, Kathy Kucher.

This year ' s staff consisted of 14 stu- ents. six of whom attended a work- hop at Ball State University during the ummer. They brought the skills and nowledge they acquired back to the other students. They learned many creative ideas for captions, copy, headlines, and also uni- que designs for layouts. The photographers played an impor- tant part in the production of the year- book. Although they often got yelled at because pictures weren ' t taken or con- tact sheets couldn ' t be found, they still played a major part of the staff.

Beginning in 1931, the Ad- vance newspaper has been a principal part of Elmhurst life for the past 50 years. The first staff was made up of about 50 students; the present staff has 26 students. Although the staff has decreased in size, the quality of the newspaper has remained the same. The Advance is produced bi-weekly. The time between paste-up days is spent gather- ing information, interviewing, and planning for the next issue. The reporters find out what is going on with the various clubs and activities of the school, while the sports writers cover the different athletic events. The feature stories, news stories, editorials, and the ad section make up the total format of the Advance. Quill and Scroll is the national honor socie- ty for |Ournalism students. To be a member, one must be outstanding in journalism and ranked in the top Vi of his class. This year the Quill and Scroll had the haunted house at the Penny Arcade and also sponsored the banquet at the end of the year.

Each year Elmhurst hosts a student or students so that we may learn more about other parts of the world. Also it gives us an opportunity to send some of our students to another country to become involved in this meaningful experience. AFS did many things to raise money. They sponsored paper drives and they also had many other non-profit activities such as a booth in the Penny Arcade, a Christmas party, and an International Potluck Dinner featuring songs and dancers from many different countries. The officers for the 1980-81 school year were Donald Raney, president; Ed Aboufadel, vice presi- dent; Sandy Porter, secretary-trea- surer; and Gina Birch, social chair- man. Advisers were Mrs. Delores Banks, Mrs. Rosel Blessing, and Mrs. Ofelia Herrero. America Latina provides entertainment in the form of a Latin American dance for the Inter- national Potluck supper.

Students Prepare For Business Future Helping students prepare for their future is what COE (Cooperative Of- fice Education) and OEA (Office Education Association) is all about. In the classroom, Ms. Van Slyke helps by teaching the skills of the business world. The real advantage is the chance to have on the job training. Students have the oppor- tunity to work in such places as Lin- coln Life, Lincoln Bank, etc. The Trojan Circle Achievement Group was founded in 1979 by Mr. Eugene White. The idea of this group was to improve the relationships between staff and students. The Trojan Circle had many ac- tivities this year. They had the an- nual Christmas party, a picnic, and also many speakers that talked to students about careers and goals. COE senior Patrma Green gets good on the job training at a local bank.

DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) is an educational group at EHS where the students manage to have fun even though it is a working at- mosphere. DECA is important because it helps prepare students for the business world. Students in DECA learn about the American free-enterprise system, selling and human relations. The students have a chance to prove what they learned by partipating in several contests. They also sponsor the Muscular Dystrophy Dance-a-thon.

Club, library workers, and student service workers all worked hard and got a lot ac- complished. Running filmstrip projec- tors from room to room, checking out books, and picking up attendance cards were a small part of their daily routine to help the school run smoother. Bright and early Saturday, January 10, a busload of people went to brave the ski slopes of Timberidge. This was the very first adventure for the newly formed Elmhurst Ski Club. The trip was a success so they planned to have more. Clubs had been started in other years at Elmhurst, but they never seemed to get past developmental stages. Sponsors for the club this year were Mr. Dan Dickey, Miss Sharon Dietrich, and Miss Bonnie O ' Connell. Every Thursday afternoon at 3:30 the bowling team meets at Village Bowl for their weekly games. Their season runs from October until the end of March. They have mixed teams of all four grades and they ' re broken up into two leagues. The sponsor of the club is Mr. Dan Dickey. A.V.

The tem- porary loss of their sponsor and the decrease of club enrollment were only a few. But there were bright moments, too. The profits made from their various ac- tivities made up for all the downs. This year the club had a very special reception for actress Gertrude Jeannette from New York who was in Fort Wayne for the lead as Lena Younger in the play " A Raisin In The Sun. " Also starring in the play was EHS graduate Tony Belcher, who also came to talk to the club. The Trojan Circle was invited to participate in the festivities. The club sponsored splash parties, skating parties, a pizza party, and their Langston ' s booth during the Penny Ar- cade. They also had the talent show. These activities helped them raise money to take a trip to Cedar Point at the end of the year.

Afro Club — 167 Change of Pace, Change of Face " Was a cabin in the woods, little man by the window stood, " was a common phrase heard by anyone who attended the Thursday night Campus Life meetings. Campus Life meetings were a place to go and be rowdy or a place where you could find a little spiritual peace. The year ' s activities began with the annual Burger Bash and many other events followed. The Campus Life R.I.O.T., the Roller-Thon, a ski trip to Caberfae, and the Florida trip played a major part of fun ex- perienced by students who par- ticipated in these activities. Under new leadership, the pace of the meetings changed. Trudy Swain took over as director of the group after the former leader Dave Rahn moved to Wheaton, IL. Staff member Karen McKenna leads meeting with some Scripture readings. Who ' s that behind those Foster Grants?

Sports Add on What would life have been like without sports events and practices to break up the monotony of the academic regime? Every day we ' ve got at least one sporting event that we can attend and every day the athletes must go to practice. In the 30 ' s the sports schedule was not as full. The first yearbook showed that the only sports were boys ' and girls ' basketball and G.A.A. That wasn ' t an extremely busy year athletically. Later in the 30 ' s, though, baseball was added to the schedule. In the 40 ' s, basketball and baseball continued to flourish along with the new and popular sport of rifle shooting. The schedule in the 50 ' s blossomed a little bit. Track, golf, and cross country were added to give the Trojans a sport for every season. The 60 ' s brought football to the fore and in 1964 the Trojans won their first city series victory over South Side. That same year found the C.C. team winning the sectional tournament. Boys ' tennis and wrestling were also added in the 60 ' s. Girls ' sports came to life in the 70 ' s. Volleyball, gymnastics, and girls ' tennis gave female Trojans a chance to do something besides sit on the sidelines. So far, the only new sport in the 80 ' s is soccer, which has found lots of support. This full schedule keeps the Trojans busy, giving athletes and spectators alike " A Lot to Look Back On.

You have to have a good offense to go with your good defense, " Coach Jim Welborn commented. The Trojan defense held their op- ponents to just 152 yards a game, averaging just 3.1 yards a play. But on the other hand, the offense only gain- ed 78.8 yards a game, just 2.2 yards a play. The Trojans ' opponents outscored EHS 187-71. EHS averaged 7.1 points a game while an average of 18.4 points a game were scored by the opponents. Senior Curtis Stephens was the defensive leader for EHS, with 110 tackles.

Reserve and Freshman Football — 175 Harriers Provide Building Season From the looks of the cross country team ' s 1-11 record, it might seem as though the season was disappointing. However, with all but two runners returning next year, the experience gained could supply Coach Charles Kammeyer with a successful team in the future. Although the team did reasonably well against the competition, having only two seniors and three juniors was a handicap. Most of the team had only one year experience, and all of the run- ners had to gear themselves for the longer metric distance used this year for the first time. At 5,000 meters, or 3.1 miles, it is a longer distance than the 2.5 miles of other years. Thus the times were slower than in previous seasons.

In the 155-pound weight class, senior Jon DeGrandchamp finished his last year as a Trojan wrestler with a 23-5 record. DeGrandchamp placed first in the Wawasee and Carmel tournaments and also placed first in sectionals and regionals, but failed to reach state, finishing with a fourth place at semi-state. With the second best record on the team, junior Don Stein showed much skill and improvement as he defeated several very good wrestlers. Stein wrestled in the 177-pound class but only weighed in at 170, so his 13-7 record was well earned. Other wrestlers with winning records were senior Kevin Corey at 126, with a 14-9 record; junior Harold Durnell, who wrestled at 132 and finished with a 13- 11 record; and junior Gary Davis, who finished the season in the 119-pound class with a 13-10 record and a second place at sectionals. EHS had a losing season in dual meets but surprised many in the tour- naments. Coach Terry Larson com- mented, " I thought we would win a few dual meets but we had a lot of bad breaks. In tournament play I thought we did well, especially at Carmel. We placed third at one of the hardest tour- naments in the state.

Laura also placed fourth p all around competition with a score M31.80. I Competing on the intermediate level at regionals was freshman Michelle Metzger. She just missed a chance at state by placing fourth all around with I total score of 26.05. Helping the team out in the optional level during the season with good scores were junior Peggy Arend, sophomore Jane Stinson, and Ireshman Rhonda Schroeder.

Junior Terry Milton, a newcomer to Elmhurst, set a new record in the 100 meter dash with a time of 10.7. Terry also went to the state competition in the long jump.

The team as a whole did exceptionally well also with a record of 2-5-1 in the regular season. Elmhurst placed second in the Homestead Invitational, tied for sixth at SAC, came in fourth at Sectionals, fourth at Regionals, and twenty-sixth at State. Freshmen Cheryl Davis and Donna Bright, junior Debra Martin, and senior Gloria Prosser went to state in the 400 meter relay while Prosser, Bright, Mar- tin and freshman Stacey Martin com- peted in the 800 meter relay. In- dividual runners were junior Sabrina Harris in the 100 meter run and Debra Martin in the 200. The 400 relay finished fourth out of ten giving them a medal with which to remember their first state meet. Many records were broken this season in various events — Stacey Martin in the hurdles, Sabrina Harris in the 100 and 400, and Debra Martin in the 200. The 400 meter relay and the 800 meter relay were record breakers also. A new event to girls ' track this year, the mile relay, had their best time with a team consisting of juniors Ellen Springer and Jenny Krieg, sophomore Laura Lawrence and freshman Lori Miller.

Girls ' Track — 203 Cheerleaders Qualify For Nationals Besides just practicing and cheering at all the games, there are a lot more responsibilities of being a cheerleader. Attending a summer workshop, painting signs, planning pep sessions, and selling suckers for the Heart Association were all a part of the job. At the summer workshop at St. Mary ' s in Notre Dame, the varsity cheerleaders qualified for national competition. Then they came back to Elmhurst to cheer for the Mighty Trojans. Miss Mary Rosman was the sponsor for all three squads this year. Within her busy schedule she had the time to work with the girls and make a squad worth cheering for. Cheering at the sectional game against Luers, senior Jill Reinhart shows the dedication it take; to be a cheerleader. Varsity and reserve cheerleaders combine on a mount during practice. Poise and personality are required to become a cheerleader. Junior Gayle Kohrman seems to have both of these qualities. 204 — Cheerleading Junior Steve Brezette requires some help with his collar from junior Gayle Kohrman.

This was an improvement, inasmuch as the team hadn ' t won a match in three years. Under the direction of new head coach Claire Fennelly, the girls were cold in the beginning of the season, but then started to win some of their matches. Two of these matches were SAC wins over Wayne and South Side. Junior Lisa DeRoche was the deciding point in the Wayne match. The positions of first singles and second singles alternated between juniors Ann Rinard and Chris Baker. Italian exchange student, senior Daniela Bottan, was awarded Most Valuable Player, for her outstanding play in the third singles position.

Trojans Take Sectionals Coached by Bill Derbyshire, the baseball team ended its season with a 15-11 win-loss record. Coach Der- byshire divided the season into four parts, recalling " The first part, I was pleased; in the middle I was displeased. Then in the sectional I was pleased again; but in the fourth part I was very displeased, because we didn ' t play as well as we could have. " The Trojans put out Woodlan and Harding in the sectionals b efore being defeated by Homestead in regionals. Two Trojan hitters, Kevin Kramer and Marty Causey, both posted batting averages of over .400, and Jeff Haynes and Rex Yarman had averages of over .300. In the hurling department, Kent Sims pitched six wins and two losses, and had an earned run average of 2.13. Causey, chosen first-team All-City, led the team in both stolen bases (11) and runs batted in (26). Looking ahead to future years Coach Derbyshire states, " Every one of the freshmen is good. Just guessing I think we could improve our record; but it is tough to win sectionals back to back.

Anhbrum ad manager Leslie Hutner puts the border on to frame an attractive ad. Leslie sold and designed all the ads in the 1981 Anhbrum. Yearbook advertising is a big part of raising funds to cover the cost of the production. But besides just making money, it is a learning experience and a kind of practice ground for the people who will sway your future decisions with advertising. The ads of yearbooks from the 30 ' s and 40 ' s were pretty simple, using basically just type and some graphics to make them a little more attractive. These were also mainly institutional ads, which means that the business would buy space merely to promote the name of the company and familiarize the readers with the services it provides. The 50 ' s and 60 ' s found more graphics and pictures being used. Occasionally the business would have a logo that was its trademark and was always used in its ads. Creativity was a major part of making up these ads; the many elements had to be placed attractively to catch the reader ' s eye. The art of advertising really grew in the 70 ' s and 80 ' s. Familiar jingles and slogans were thrown at us from all angles just so we would remember the name of the business and connect the name with the service or product provided. Interesting and blatant ads were designed to jump off the page and into the reader ' s mind. Ads were laid out to strategically whisper a message or garishly shout it at our subconscious. Over the 50 years that advertising has been a part of the Anhbrum, businesses and patrons alike have indirectly paid for the memories that give Trojans " A Lot to Look Back On.

Heading into the darkroom to say goodbye to her " fellow " photographers, senior Lisa Poorman was relieved about the last day of her high school career. - 1 Robert Snyder, Jim Swartzlander, and Al Schmutz received a standing ovation at their last concert together. Mr. Horstmeyer said goodbye to them at the Spring concert. Seniors said goodbye and made plans for the afternoon during the senior breakfast. Mr. White also Informed the class of ' 81 about some " strange " facts concerning their classmates. f B m i B ■ II ' 9BH A. ' I Touch EHS; EHS Touches Me When I paint I am influenced by the texture of the paper, the viscosity of the paint, the condition of the brush. I reach down to a thin line and it comes out plump. Then the picture takes a new direction — influencing it; it in- fluencing me. — Hugh Prather As we say good-bye to Elmhurst, whether it be just for the summer, as alumni, or to pursue different careers and dreams, we can ' t help but reflect on how the different per- sonalities that we ' ve come across at Elmhurst have in- fluenced our lives. Teachers or administrators whom we ' ve loved and ad- mired may influence us to be more dedicated. Students who are determined have probably aroused several emotions — jealousy, dislike, admiration, or simply awe at their stick-to-it-iveness. The negative personalities influence us too. Someone who seems totally unfair could cause us to vow never to be closeminded or biased. But we may also want to retaliate with the same unfair actions. How each one of us is influenc- ed depends on our own personality. Elmhurst is a small community of unique surroundings. Everyone who passes through EHS is confronted with the same sort of influences. That is our common bond and what links us Trojans together forever. i — ' «w J V F 7 Senior honor students and class officers hold lighted candles and listen while salutatorian Christin Tonn gives a farewell speech at senior recognition night. The Spring concert is traditionally the last concert of the year. It was also the last concert at EHS for the three directors in the music department. Junior Todd Young says good-bye and thank-you to these very special people. Closing — 237 Closing the Doors We ' re closing the doors at Elmhurst this year for the fiftieth time, but each year it holds significant meaning for each individual who was involved in the life at Elmhurst. For the graduating seniors it can mean an end as well as a beginning. It ' s the end of high school and those familiar surroundings and it ' s the beginning of new experiences. Friendships and personal ties sometimes falter as one or the other friend goes on to college, the armed services, marriage or a very demanding and time consuming job. For the underclassmen the closing of school for the summer is more like a welcome break in the routine school year, yet they have the next year full of homework, activities and friendships to relish. The summer brings for them a change without the sense of finality that seniors find in the end of a school year. They can anticipate the move up in rank and a myriad of new opportunities during the short recess. There has been speculation as to the permanent closing of Etmhurst ' s doors. Trojans can only wait and see but although friendships and lives would not necessarily suffer from the transfer of students from EHS to other Fort Wayne schools, most Trojans would find a lump in their throats at the thought of teaving Elmhurst, because it ' s not just a pile of bricks, it ' s ' A Lot to Look Back On.
