Flashes Amid the psychedelic cluster and confusion of room 113, an air of studious calm pervades between Caranita Kesterson and Phil Utterback as they consult a variety of yearbook references in order to improve the current Flashback. A new student joining the ranks of Flashes fans this year is junior Becky Barnes, who seems to be more intent upon her locker than upon letterman Glen Sutherland. A sure-fire formula for success is a thorough understanding of high school chemistry. On the left, peering through the un- fashionable but necessary safety glasses is Daria Mason, who appears dubious about the result of her experiment. . . . are more than just people. They are hard working, laughing, and loyal fanatics of life. They are Flashes — moving like Flashes and reaching for the impossible with an electrifying and victorious grasp. Flashes Follow in the pathways of the successful. Yet, as they follow, they leave footsteps for poster- ity. In the home, the church, the community. Flashes follow the wise, and set examples for the wise. They are a laughing, diligent and successful group, brimming with the unconquerable hope of youth, yet respectful of the age they follow. Flashes Follow Thru in everything from the hard core studying for final exams to the emotion filled victory for their team. The Flashes Follow Thru in anything they attempt. They begin with their heads down as they charge into the challenge and emerge with head high — wiser and benefiting from the experience. Countless hours are spent in the library as students prepare their term papers. Above are Kathy Allen and Larry Thames, cramming that voluminous amount of work into those few very precious hours before the first draft must be completed. Science department head, Mr. Al Morgan, discusses the head- way being made on the new science wing with fellow science teacher Mrs. Margaret Richwine over a nutritious lunch pre- pared by competent cooks. Some of the many facilities available during the lunch hour are a study room, a snack bar, and the use of the library. Unless the weather conditions are unusually bad, the patio is also a ready resource for enjoying the fresh air and numerous flower beds. A hall where only minutes before students shoved, walked, and pushed, is left only with the echo of the slammed lockers, laughter, and conversation. A hall once over-populated with noise as well as people and laughter is now barren, and a feeling of quiet lonliness persists. The rain, the patio, and a puddled reflection form a misty, moody, and maudlin frame for the art classes as they develop their talents in a colorful and artistic environment. " Spirit, Spirit " . . . Spontaneous and rousing yells burst forth from the pep club and major- ettes as the caped and gloved figures fight vocally for their Flashes who fight physically for a victory to be shared by all. Floats, Game, and Queen Capture Approval Half-time became the climax of the homecoming game as a gala parade of class floats circled the track. Freezing fans eagerly watched as the court was presented and the crowning of Queen Connie Allen took place. Tension mounted even higher as students awaited the announcement of the win- ning float. The momentous evening was capped with a victory over the Chartrand Rams. Taking the traditional journey around the football field. Queen Connie helps add to festivities during half time. Randy Tucker fades into the background after presenting red roses and a crown to the Queen. Her escort is Ron Rockey. Finally breaking the tradition of having losing floats, seniors captured first place in this year ' s competition. " Give ' Em Defeet " was the theme which was portrayed in motion. The ram fell for- ward after being kicked by the Flash. Flashes fans brave the cold weather as they bundle up to watch another homecoming become history. Enjoying half time, those in the press box have the advantage of the best seats. Char- trand Rams could not contend with the mighty F.C. team and had to mark a defeat on their record. Students were entertained afterwards in the gym with the annual dance. Providing the music were the Idle Few. Mike Dougherty received the honor of king and was crowned by Queen Connie. Given the chance to elect representatives, underclassmen experienced voting at the polls on Nov. 5th. Confusion domi- nated the scene and explanations were necessary. Seniors Kathy Kirkham and Sylvia Macaluso attempt to show freshman Jeff Sexton different ways of marking his ballot while fellow- Nat Millie Moore hopes that this selection is for her party. Federalists Becky Schumacher and Mike Parish stand by to make sure that no pressure is placed upon the voter. Politics Produces Champions with Know-How Seniors followed through almost two months of campaigning fo r election of representatives to attend the Purdue Legislature. Primary tasks began in individual government classes and even- tually evolved into posters and slogans seen by all. Competition between the Feds and Nats provided a mood of anticipation for F.C. Flashes. Convention chairman, Becky Schumacher, presides over the Federalist convention while Vickie Crawford performs the many duties of a convention clerk. The Federalist party, through a hard fought campaign, went on to win the election. Anticipation and anxiety mark Doug Crago ' s face during one of the convention recesses. Doug was a candidate for senator of the Federalist convention, but he was defeated by Jim Tandy after four ballots. Homecoming court members for 1969 were (left to right) Seniors Daria Mason, Rick Reed, Claudia Grahn, Jim Tandy, Queen Kathy and King Wally Olin. Junior members were Beth Baird and joe Cougill. Heading the underclassmen were Susie Peek and Bill Speckin joined by Freshmen representatives Carolyn Tawney and Larry Young who complete the court. Royalty of Hearts Reign over Homecoming ' 69 It ' s the only thing that happens to liven the dullness of winter. Everybody is excited — with teachers forgetting homework and all. There ' s a pep session that would wake the dead— not only in spirit, but through noise as well! The evening begins, the game, the crowning of the queen, the soc hop, the king,— all are memories. And then it ' s over. Maybe it wasn ' t all we ' d expected— we ' re left a little bit sad and a bit happy. Its a funny feeling. A homecoming feeling, that becomes a memory. Basketball homecoming Queen Kathy Woods was crowned during the halftime by senior class president Bill Townsend. Smiling seniors Kathy Woods and Wally Olin reigned as King and Queen of Hearts during the Valentine ' s Day fanfare. Charlie Brown Finds First Place ' ' Happiness ' ' The junior skit revealed the secret longings of these robots for human characteristics. They are M. Barclay, A. Henricks, D. Rockey, T. Davis, G. Baldwin, and M. Smith. Expounding on the joy of a carefree life with the song " Windy " are B. Green, J. Akers, M. Clark, and D. Tielking. Toy shop flops became Blue Ribbon winners in their 1969 Blue White Revue Presentation, " The Misfits " by Amy Brandii. Seniors took us for a short trip into Dreamland with Prince Paul Thomas and his Fairy Princess Susan Schular. Good Grief Charlie Brown . . . What an intermission act! Hap- piness is first place!! Members of this Franklin Central Pea- nut ' s gang (minus Snoopy), are Bruce Westphal, Becky Barnes, Mark Barclay, Elaine McDaniel, and Tom Kracht. Members of the Night in Camelot Prom Court were B.

Camelot Captured in Romantic Prom ' s Theme " A law was made a distant moon ago here, July and August cannot be too hot. And there ' s a legal limit to the snow here ... in Camelot. " This legendary land of milk and honey was the setting of the 1969 Junior-Senior Prom. With a little spirit and a lot of work, the juniors turned the Knights of Columbus into the Knights of Camelot. It was a night that spanned a few centuries of time to provide a few hours of pleasure. It now seems like a dream that took place in some fantasy land . . . in Camelot. The romance of dancing under the stars of Camelot was en- hanced by the music of the Jim Edison Band. Queen Jackie Burton and King Tom Kracht reigned over the knights and ladies who attended " A Night in Camelot. " Energetic Flashes Honored for Achievements Hoosier scholars are P. Thomas, R. Neal, J.

Senior scholar, Rob Entrekin, received one of many science awards (including a trip to the National Science Fair in Fort Worth, Texas) from instructor Mrs. Margaret Richwine. Recipients of speech club awards were Debbie Service, Cara- nita Kesterson, and Eddie Ahearn. 1969 Pilot Flashes staff members are J. Harmon, J. Tandy, S. Rabourn, A. Lancaster, D. Mason, B. Barnes, G. Baldwin, R. Entrekin, Editor R. Vushkalns, and T. Boyer. Flowering up and following through, in the usual Franklin Central tradition, the speech club presented " David and Lisa " as their second annual spring play. Debuting as the first drama on Franklin Central ' s stage, David (Karl Hinkle), and Lisa (Peggy Schmidt), received rounds of applause. The play itself deals with the story of how two mentally unbalanced youths found reality not in the world from which they withdrew, but in themselves. Spring Showers Add Many Talented Flowers Just as the athlete has his letter, so the musician has the concert. For the 1969 Spring Concert the " 1812 Overture " was presented by the band, while the chorus and singers gave Rodgers and Hammer- stein just tribute with songs from " Carousel " .

Senior Flashes Ready in Mind and Resource FLASHES FOLLOW THRU miiill E! ■■■lii 4«V1BB I : ii WiM 1 ' , I ri» The Business Department of F.C. is following through this year in many ways, especially with the new intensive laboratory. With the cooperation of the federal government and the local school corporation, Franklin Central now has the oppor- tunity to give the business world some very fine office personnel with a workable knowledge of what happens in various office situations. The basic purpose of this program is to further develop previously acquired skills and to adapt them to realistic office practices. The Business Department offers three majors- stenography, general clerical work, and general business. These courses provide fundamental training in technical skills to challenge involved Flashes. I Miss Melanie Burk, junior class guidance counselor, devotes a period of her busy day to teaching advanced shorthand. Intensive Laboratory Provides Work Ex hi As overseer of our new intensive laboratory, Miss Bonnie Wood- ruff observes senior Sue Sweeney practicing her typing skills. The familiar voice of Mr. John Gruner is often heard in Franklin Central ' s halls as he teaches general business with a pleasing smile. Mrs. Caroline Wessel, as a member of the Business Depart- ment advises students on the shorthand skills involved in the active business world of today. perience for Career Girls Mrs. Helen Ernstes, in the process of helping Joyce Murray on the ten-key adding machine, pauses to assist the class in a bookkeeping problem. She also teaches consumer economics, salesmanship, and office practice. franklin Central ' s Business Department this year added a new development which was met with tremendous enthusiasm by numerous student applicants. From these, twenty girls were chosen to fulfill duties that busy teachers needed done for them. Tfiese students have gained valuable experience in typing, shorthand, and business management. The intensive lab meets during the first two periods of each day. Here Miss Wood- ruff is giving advice to Terry Keller. Math Moves F.C s Men of Old Magic Advising general math student Paul Moore as to the correct procedure in determining the right equation for a tricky problem is Mr. Dick Harpold, another member of F.C. ' s mathematics teaching staff. " Got it now, Paul? " From basic addition and division to sines and cosines, F.C. students are taught the math their particular needs call for. College-bound students discover a five year course awaiting them. On the other hand, those students desiring only the math they will need in their respective skills will obtain an adequate two year course of study. No matter what the need, the F.C. Math Department can and does meet it usually adding the spice of subtle humor. riui3!uiiiK?y , A- A Explaining the techniques involved in plotting the actual dia- gram of a geometric equation is Mr. Jeff Cougill ' s daily assign- Top secret documents? Mysterious blueprints? No, only depart- ment head, Mr. Glenn Eastes ' s assortment of tests ranging from Algebra I to the fifth year math topics, all of which he teaches daily in the infamous Room 107. 18 Electrical Current? Catalysts? Crustaceans? while showing some of his students the finer points in construc- ting an insect collection, biology teacher Mr. Morgan expli- citly explains each procedure from the capturing of a flea to the pinning of a giant water beetle. A wide scope of subjects is covered in our Sci- ence Department. This variety ranges from the number of legs on an insect to the methods used in measuring such things as the amount of power in an electrical current. Mr. Al Morgan ' s biology students study the characteristics of worms, anthro- pods, amphibians, and mammals. At the same time, Mr. Bill Ford ' s classes observe such areas as the methods of collecting gases, functions of catalysts, and the symbolic labeling of chemicals and minerals. However, in addition to chemistry and physics, Mrs. Margaret Richwine ' s students learn the application of algebra in science. " Catalysts " are the subject of Mr. Ford ' s four freshmen physical science classes. Mr. Ford includes experiments in his lectures to make them more interesting. One of his many experiments illustrates the formation of gas over water. In measuring volts of electrical current, physics student Jim Tandy receives comments on different aspects of his experi- ment from physics teacher Mrs. Richwine. From a Political Philosophy to U.S. Economy The successful completion of an all-school election prepared by the senior government classes as well as the informative staging of the Andrew Johnson impeachment trials by juniors highlight the year in the F.C. Social Studies Depart- ment. All in all, our Social Studies Department stirs the students ' imagination and creates an understanding of the laws under which we live. Mr. Bill Bankston and Mr. Roger Cook fill teaching assignments in this field as well. Giving a student a lecture? No, Mr. Bill Clarke is busy explain- ing a few of the problems a U.S. government teacher faces while Mr. Dennis Wiseman, a first semester student teacher, listens with anticipation, eagerness, and hope. " Did you say to fill-a-buster, Mr. Clarke? " questions Senators Sara Luby, Gordon Edwards, and Caranita Kesterson, who seem puzzled as to the exact legislative meaning of Mr. Clarke ' s sorrie- what dubious plan of attack in Student Congress. " Executing a conven- tion, " Mr. Clarke tells Caranita Kesterson, " requires ironing out details through hours of discussion. " One of the most interesting projects of the U.S. history classes is the impeachment trial of Andrew Johnson. Here prosecuting attorney, Kirk Freese, examines witness Donna Piepenbrok as Judge Joe Wesseler, defense attorney Mark McKinney, and the jury listen attentively to the testimony. Andrew Johnson — a Prosecution or Defense? Mrs. Dee Anne Williams, who graduated from Indiana Central, is a new member of the Franklin Central history staff. Mrs. Williams teaches government and world history. FHere she lectures her students on the French Revolution. Mr Jim FHoskins, U.S. history teacher, passes papers concern- ing group projects. Students spent the year busily participating in skits, trials, and elections which attempted to actively involve students in the events of yesteryear. Mrs. Jane Morgan prepares those seniors who are bound for a future college career. English grammar is taught by Mrs. Morgan the first semester as a review for the students. The second semester, compositi on and English literature are offered to eager seniors who desire additional learning. Literature Brings Great Writings to Students Mrs. Lucille Peterson, a member of the English Department and junior class sponsor, has sophomore and junior students under her direction. Mrs. Peterson is pictured here showing her " travel " bracelet to junior, Nancy McFarland. Beginning as a student teacher from Ball State University, Mrs. Gayle Heath became a full-time English teacher second semes- ter. Mrs. Heath is pictured teaching students American litera- ture, just one of many requirements of a sophomore. English courses became more challenging and exciting this year with the purchasing of new books. The English Department, headed by Mrs. Jane Mor- gan, consists of seven ambitious teachers. Each stu- dent is required to take three years of English in order to graduate. In his senior year, he may choose English, literature, or composition as elec- tives, all of which are college preparatory classes. Most college-bound students select all the English courses available. Humorous discussions, spine-tingling debates and emotion prone speeches are highlights of Mr. Roger Cook ' s Speech II class. After directing the highly successful senior play, Mr. Cook is now planning another stage production. " Hurry! Hurry! We ' ve got a deadline. " These phrases could usually be heard from room 113 as Miss Melva Cornwell, as sponsor, attempts to emphasize a serious point to the forever hustling Pilot Flashes newspaper staff. Challenging freshmen with new words, ideas, and stories, Mrs. Georgia Stumpf presents each day ' s lesson with renewed vitality and enthusiasm. Her detailed but understandable expla- nations include patience and perseverance. Literary ballads and folklore were brought to real life by Mr. Williarri Bankston assisted by Mr. Doug Stevens in his junio r English classes. Many enjoyable and educational moments are experienced as ballads are vocalized. Language Classes Say Bonjour, Hola, Vale! " Bonjour, " " Hola, " " Vale " . . . hellos from three different foreign languages, French, Spanish, and Latin. The study of foreign language is an im- portant part of the school ' s curriculum because it widens the student ' s knowledge and environ- ment and familiarizes him with the country ' s native way of life. Three years of foreign language are now offered, and many students benefit from this program. Mrs. Lucy Miner, Mrs. Eileen Thomas, and Miss Mary Kay Stephenson contribute daily to the enrichment of our student ' s understanding of foreign lands. " Sum, es, est, summus, estis " . . . the Latin verb " sum " as it is conjugated by freshman Mark Baird. Here Latin instructor, Mrs. Thomas, eagerly assists. Mrs. Thomas is also a member of the guidance department at Franklin Central. Beep, beep . . . here comes another member of Franklin ' s English and foreign language staff. Mrs. Miner teaches French 1,11, and Fnglish Ml, VIII. As shown above Mrs. Miner is chasing the " Road Runner " through a crowded hall. " por eso " . . . the Spanish expression meaning " therefore " or " that ' s why " is frequently used by Miss Stephenson and her students. Besides being a Spanish I and II instructor. Miss Stephenson also teaches English I and II. Running a library smoothly is an important as well as a time- consuming job. The efficiency and success of our library can be attributed to Mrs. Thelma Shutt. Her efforts to improve and update our present library facilities are positive proof of her objective interest in the educational advancement of our com- munity. In the above picture, Mrs. Shutt examines some of the many new books received this year in preparation for their entries in the card catalog. Library Facilities Are Improved This Year Many new books, visual aids, and more research materials have been added to the library at Frank- lin Central this year. Our head librarian, Mrs. Thelma Shutt, was able to accomplish this improve- ment with the help of the federal government. Mrs. Shutt should be commended for her efforts and for her interest in the student body. This year a new assistant has been added to the library staff, Mrs. Elsie Freese. An F.C.H.S. student librarian, Marsha Miller, performs her daily task of replacing library books which have been returned by student borrowers. Many student librarians spend their mornings working in the library. Teacher ' s aid, Mrs. Elsie Freese, works industriously on the card catalog of our library, inserting entries for new materials that have supplemented the improvement of our facilities. Mrs. Freese is also supervisor of the study hall. Home Economic and Jeanette Hurst, a beginning home economics student, learns the basics of cooking as she removes her product of individual pizzas from the oven. Miss Ruth Greenham, who instructs home eco- nomic students, places tremendous emphasis on the importance of a basic knowledge in home- making for every young woman. As a part of their required projects, the girls complete meals, dresses, coats, and suits. To make a more realistic environment, ovens and sewing machines are used. Learning to measure, beat, pour, and sift, is part of Home Eco- nomics 1. Here Patty Newman and Jeanette Hurst practice their newly acquired cooking skills. In the future these girls will use this training to become better homemakers. Miss Ruth Greenham instructs home economic students at Franklin Central. She contends that the purpose of home eco- nomics is to prepare the students to become better home- makers in the future. Miss Greenham sponsors the Future Homemakers Club and their activities such as selling Christmas cards, preparing dinners for their mothers, and viewing educa- tional films. Here Miss Greenham displays a miniature home constructed as a project by one of her students. ndustrial Art Students Gain Vocational Skills The Industrial Arts Department offers experience and opportunity for interested students at F.C.H.S. This department is headed by Mr. Wilbur Meyer, who is assisted by Mr. Bill Reed and Mr. Norm Starkey. The new wing will provide this department with modern facilities to expand its programs for students that they serve. Mr. Starkey is a prominent member of the industrial arts staff. As well as instructing electrics, drafts, and woods, he also teaches physical education. Mr. Bill Reed is a versatile and smiling member of Franklin Central ' s faculty. As an industrial arts instructor, Mr. Reed is seen above in his role as a drafting teacher, while sophomore Don Rode appears to be engrossed in his work. Advanced metal ' s student, senior Jim Gray is skillfully assisted by Mr. Meyer in learning the tedious but basic techniques ap- plied in the molding of metal into shapes that are productive and useful, as well as artistic. Intent, upon doing his project well, senior Bob Penny carefully shapes a metal bar on an anvil. Mr. Meyer watches on and occasionally suggests some of his won trade secrets that will undoubtedly benefit Bob in his future. P.E. Contributes to Fitness of F.C. Students In one phase of the physical education semester, the freshmen and sophomore girls participate in gymnastics. As shown above, physical education teacher Mrs. Crise demonstrates to her attentive students her skill on the trampoline. After watching. each student is able to " try her luck " on the trampoline, the parallel bars, the balance beams, the side horse, or the ropes. To supplement her classes, Mrs. Crise supervises extra-curricular C.A.A. activities. Student teaching physical education and health is Mr. Bob Smock from Indiana Central College. In the above picture Mr. Smock is supervising students Richard Sircy at the parallel bars while Mike Hopkins and Dennis Everts assist. Physical education at F.C.H.S. covers a wide range of activities. Volleyball, gymnastics, and tumbling are general favorites. Under the direction of Mrs. Jennifer Crise, Mr. Larry Hanni, Mr. Jim Hoskins, and Mr. Norm Starkey, the involved freshmen and sophomores learn rules and format of the program that is, in many cases, the highlight of their school year. In the health orientation classes, students learn about the body and its functions as well as being better, healthier citizens. An avid advocate of the Flashes and eleven year veteran of Franklin Central is Mr. Larry Hanni, who not only fulfills the duties of athletic director but is also a health, physical education, and biology instructor as well. Representation of Flashes is plentiful in Mr. Anderson ' s art classes. He plans and provides, but especially stinnulates novices to create and execute ideas which become tangible objects of pride, beauty, and signals of individuality. " See, it might be done like this, " says Mr. Anderson as he skill- fully sketches a rural scene for Judy Reuter as Roberta Carlson, Laura Ray, and Marvin Hittle diligently w ork to complete their own individual rural scenes in watercolors. Behind every artist, is there a Mr. Zane Ander- son? Well, there is behind an F.C. artist. Knowing that artistic talent must be developed, Mr. Anderson requires his students to begin dis- playing their " know-how " by practice drawing trees and portraits. From there students are en- couraged to display in areas of paints, pastels, and watercolors. Then when the student feels and illustrates a certain sense of confidence, he goes on to learn techniques and uses of coloration. Artistic Flashes Profit from New Instructor An addition to the faculty is Mr. Zane Anderson, art teacher. Each day he instructs high school art classes and classes in the elementary school. Here Mr. Anderson demonstrates how a bottle is decorated to suit the tastes of a few students. Lighted multicolored candles are held over the bottle allowing the wax to drip. With a quick but steady move of the hand and an artis- tic quality in the eye, the bottle becomes a work of beauty and pleasure. Flashes Display Miscellaneous Musical Skills The band and choir is directed by Mr. Bob Ferris. Mr. Ferris does not simply direct the nnusic stu- dents, but he also teaches the finer points and tricks used to create beautiful music. Some of the devices he uses consist of vocal exercises for the choir and chorus students, and of course, diligent practice on the part of the singers. In the band, difficult measures of music are gone over until they are perfect. Mr. Ferris is also a performer as well as a teacher. He sings and plays the piano himself when he is instructing his choir classes. . . Another virtuoso? If one could consider a tuba player a virtuoso, then senior Steve Dieck would be Franklin Central ' s. As a senior, Steve has had the honor of being one of F.C. ' s better tuba musicians for four years. ' - t Another F.C. Good Samaritan lends a helping hand. It is necessary in band, as in other activities, to develop a sense of well-being toward others. This is utilized when one player turns a page while the other is still playing. " Noel, Noel, Noel! " rang through the gymnasium as the music department presented a magnificent Christmas salute in song. After a glorious instrumental medley by the concert band, the combined choir and chorus sang several uniquely arranged carols. The Fr.anklin Central Singers as well as the dance band specialized on several show-stopping numbers. The finale came with the entire music ensemble harmoniously uniting to present a most wonderful composition. Amy Brandii is shown here " ringing her chimes. " It is a com- mon sight to see the F.C. band marching in the blistering heat and gusty winds around the school practicing for their half- time performance of the Friday night game. pf Ti VfKH s mH ?

While preparing for college, seniors improve their reading rate and comprehension of the various books, essays, and the many films that are used for the completion of the course. The shadowscope is most often used by students to increase their vocabulary, to speek their reading, and to com- prehend what they read. All through life students will benefit from their accomplishments. Mr. Knoop Produces Much Faster Flashes Under the instruction of Mr. Marvin Knoop, the reading lab students at Franklin Central are given the opportunity to improve their reading ability and comprehension. Each student enrolled in an English class is expected to report to the reading lab once a week for further instructions from Mr. Knoop. Many students have improved their reading abilities from this course. A record of the individual ' s progress is kept and checked weekly by Mr. Knoop. Progress should, and usually does, steadily im- prove from week to week with the continued use of the equip- ment. The result — Faster Flashes. At the end of the day, Mr. Knoop checks students ' progress. He notes whether they improve their reading rate or remain the same. At the end of the semester, reading grades are com- bined with students ' grades in English. Mrs. Lillian Maze, special education instructor, aids her students, Renee Clark and Dale Boehle, with their reading lesson. Mrs. Maze tries to give each of her students individual attention to help them with their special needs. A project in production by the special education class was a shoe-shine kit. Materials including wood, felt, and sheepskin were prepared by cutting, sanding, and refinishing. Then the parts were attached, properly packaged, and sold. The purpose of the Special Education Department of Franklin Central is to increase the student ' s academic knowledge and to prepare the students to enter into high school education. This year the department included a " Special Needs " project financed by federal funds to increase the student ' s vocational ability and aptitude. A " Special Needs ' ' Program Develops Ability This project prepared by the class is the " Indiana Clock. " The stude nts prepared the wood for the face of the clock by cutting it in the shape of Indiana, attached gold numerals and hands, assembled the working parts, and then attached the mounting. One of the activities of the students is to fold the programs for the coming basketball and football games. Don Souders, Renee Clark, Don Britton, Kathy Patrick, and Richard Brokamp busily prepare for this year ' s football homecoming. FLASHES FOLLOW 1HRU " We ' re Tough! Real Tough! Tough Enough!

' s star quarterback Joe Cougill is in typical action as he re- trieves the " old pigskin " for the Flashes from a worthy but dis- putable opponent. The varsity football team certainly followed through with a commendable 9 — 1 record which is the best ever at F.C. Only falling into the hands of defeat once, the football players proved too tough and experienced for contenders to even compete with. Receiving the honor of coaching a team which went undefeated in the Capital District Confer- ence, Coach Bill Reed can be proud of the trophy which represents perseverance. Outstanding var- sity players who set a record by making the All- County team were Dan Chaney, Joe Cougill, and Mike Dougherty. " That should confuse their defense, " agrees Coach Hoskins as Coach Reed and his assistants make plans for victory before the Flashes engage their opponents in battle. Apprehension dominates all three faces of the coaching staff as they watch the performance of our team. Coach Bill Reed and assistants, Mr. )im Hoskins and Mr. John Gruner, give our boys all the sideline support they can. Reserves compiled a record of 2 — 3 — 2 for Coach Jim Hoskins who has been coaching the reserves for three years. Scrimmage against the varsity provided plenty of extra work and experi- ence for the following boys: FRONT: D. Sutherland, P. Morgan, J. Cox, D. Meachum, J. Newman, F. Worrell, N. Belton SECOND: J.

From the sidelines is Coach Dick Harpold and a few squad members who carefully watch their team in action as they display a certain talent that marks the class of 72. " You guys listen carefully now, because here ' s what we ' re going to do, " says Coach Harpold who looks like he may have a few " tricks up his sleeve " that he wants his team to use as a victory element. In conveying these pointers to his team. Coach Harpold " fires ' em up " in a pre-game pep talk. In a varsity game, the outcome of a single play can determine whether the team playing offense has a chance to make a come- back. In this next crucial play, head and assistant coaches. Bill Reed and John Cruner, anxiously look on. Varsity Coach Reed knows what must be done in the next play of this game. Coach Reed secretly conveys this significant infor- mation to junior quarterback, Joe Cougill. To hear Coach Reed ' s vital message, Joe called a time-out. Coaches Inspire Flashes to Winning Season Our varsity football coaches, Jim Hoskins, Head Coach Bill Reed, and assistant coaches John Cruner and Richard Harpold, succeeded in rallying the varsity squad to finish the season with the best record ever realized by an F.C. football team. We at F.C. are truly fortunate to have four such out- standing, skillful, and capable leaders in varsity ranks. The hard-working, record setting cross-country team for 1968 was made up of the following harriers who were ' coached by Mr. Larry Hanni; FRONT: Davis Sisk, B. Townsend, H. Yensel, Dennis Sisk, D. Wulf, T. Brown, R. Rockey REAR: P. Woolman, G. Stillabower, T. Kract, G. Younce, D. Rockey, B. Westphal, ]. Lamberth, R. Lamberth. Our Harriors Repeat, " Two Miles or Bust! M Coach Hanni instructs Tim Brown as to the Flashes ' strategy. Time, patience, and knowledge of the sport are required to produce a successful team— all of which our F.C.H.S. coach posesses. He uses his skills to our best advantage. 1968 Cross-Country Record F.C. 20 Greenwood 39 F.C. 29 Chartrand 27 F.C. 26 Pike 29 F.C. 38 Greenfield 17 F.C. 19 Marshall 42 F.C. 19 Chatard 44 F.C. 15 Franklin 50 F.C. 19 New Palestine 44 F.C. 23 Beech Grove 38 F.C. 19 Martinsville 43 Finishing the season with 7 wins and 5 losses, F.C.H.S. harriers gave a respectable record to Coach Hanni. Adding more praiseworthy accom- plishments to their credit was a second place finish in the Capital District Conference. Holly Yensel paced the team with a new school record. With only four seniors on the team, the returning letter- men will be expected to perform even better in the year to come. Stamina, endurance, and will-power contribute to winning ath- letes as Holly Yensel, an outstanding junior, well understands. He set a new school record for the two mile course giving him the first place position on the team. Five effervescent Flashes are the 1968-1969 varsity cheerleaders Daria Mason, Kathy Anderson, Rita Vuskalns, Jackie Burton, and Nancy McFarland, who cheered our team to a record- breaking season in football and to our smashing victories in bas- ketball. Cheerleaders Bestow Soul Power on Flashes " We got soul, now you get some! " And you know they ' ve got real soul. You can see it in their faces filled with a fierce, spirit-boosting pride, that bursts from them in rhythmic, timed shouts of " Spirit, Spirit, let ' s hear it. " Our cheerleaders yell as if the victory depended on it — and in part it does. The many activities of a cheerleader vary from attending the summer s ession of Smith- Walbridge camp to preparing a skit that, while it brings laughter, also projects to all a hope-filled spirit of total victory, a spirit that can be found only in Flashes. Smiling reserves, acting as a ready supply of pep and enthusi- asm, keep the value of our spirit constant as they lead their Flashes. Reserve cheerleaders are Patti Brandt, Sara Miller, Peggy Schmidt, Mary Stillabower, and Kathy Cunningham. Freshmen power packs are Bonnie Young, Lana Black, Carol Kramer, Debbie Davis, and Carolyn Tawney who provided the spark of spirit needed to lead the freshmen Flashes to winning season in basketball and football.

Knoop Works Anticipation and Defense Year The contagious disease so com- mon in Indiana seized Flashes ' fans when the basketball team entered upon the court for another exciting and unpredictable season. It was a season of surprises, disappoint- ments, heartaches, and moments of joy. In retrospect it was a sea- son which reaped endurance and experience from all who participated. Gaining this experience and work- outs from competitive teams were ten diligent players and two dedi- cated coaches. Practice began early in November and continued every night for five months. Cagers had twenty-two chances in which to skillfully execute their knowledge and they followed through with a 10 — 12 record. Words of encouragement, words of advice, and sometimes words of disgust all origi- nated from Coach Knoop on the sidelines. Coach Starkey watches worriedly while Coach Knoop shouts warnings to the team. Fast and flashy Dan McFarland evades opposi- tion as he drives forcefully for those points. R. Hawk, R. Swengel, T.

Airborne Joe Cougil tries out the combination as he lines up for a basket. Dan McFarland controls the ball for a possible lay-up. Senior Bill Dougherty appears to be suspended in time while Wally Olin awaits doubtfully the outcome of the race. Hard-earned Satisfaction of Following Thru Hands up for classroom participation?

Morgan ' s Mat Men compiled individual experi- ence and endurance to rack up another prosperous season. After suffering one defeat last year, grap- plers pulled through again this year and handed eleven defeats to thirteen contenders. The trophy case is garnished with three more trophies col- lected by them. Having been obtained at county, conference, and sectional levels, these represent hard work and " Morgan motivation. " Senior John Smith, who wrestles in the 112 pound class, rein- forced F.C. wrestlers statewide recognition by achieving the dexterity needed to obtain the Mum- by Award. This is F.C. ' s second consecutive year to capture this honorable award. Senior John Denien also brought back fame by attaining a 27—1 record in the 120 pound class plus the state championship.

FLASHES FOLLOW THRU Miss Greenham Leaves Successful Keys to A lifetime of dedication to young persons characterizes the professional and personal activi- ties of Ruth Greenham. In her span of service, she has witnessed many changes. At the age of eighteen, after a summer term of teacher prepa- ration, she launched her teaching career. Her activities have always been related to home economics. Her first teaching assignment, an ele- mentary rural school in southern Indiana, was quite different from later positions. Here she pre- pared a hot lunch on the heating stove. Often- times she stirred the soup with one hand while holding a book with the other as she conducted a class. Her subsequent education was at Hanover Col- lege and Purdue University where she majored in home economics. For twenty-five years she has directed the many related activities, both in and out of the class- room, in Franklin Township. Countless students participated in the 4-H projects each summer. Many of these young people with the guidance and encouragement of Miss Greenham were local, county, state, and national winners. Each year many students exhibited in competition at the Indiana State Fair. Five of these participated at the national level, one was a national winner. A highlight of Miss Greenham ' s career was the planning of the home economics suite of labora- tories at Franklin Central High School. The beauti- ful, modern equipment and decor is a far cry from the heating (cooking) stove of her first class- room. Miss Greenham is an avid reader, particularly of history. She is intensely interested in family his- tory and is gathering stories about her Irish ances- tors who settled in southern Indiana in 1844. She plans to compile these stories. She actively serves in the work of her church in all the ways her many talents can contribute. Also, she is a member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants and the Daughters of the American Revolution. A hobby that provides much pleasure is her collection of Haviland china. Another hobby that she plans to pursue is to study organ. Miss Greenham ' s contributions to the lives of her many, many students has much greater in- fluence than the home-making skills that she demonstrates in her classes. Her loving, gracious manner and her untiring efforts thru the years make an indelible mark upon the lives of all she Happiness Discovered in " The Girl of Today " meets. The respect and admiration of her former students, often second generation, is evidence of her personal interest in them. A quotation that she gives her students des- cribes her philosophy: " So live that your afterself — the woman you ought to be — may in her time be possible and actual. Far away in the twentieth century she is waiting her turn. Her body, her brains, her soul are in your girlish hands. She cannot help herself. What will you leave for her? Will it be a brain unspoiled by reckless adven- ture-hunting or soft self-indulgence, a mind traine d to think and act, a nervous-system true as a dial in its response to the truth about you? Will you, Girl of Today, let her come, taking your place, gaining thru your experience, happy in your friendships, hallowed thru your joys, build- ing on them her own? Or will you fling her hopes away, decreeing, wanton-like, that the woman you might have been shall never be?

Reflective Thought Obvious in Daily Decisions Superintendent Mr. Robert Mason and Principal Mr. Paul Tay- lor discuss some of Franklin Central ' s incumbent problems. Scheduling substitutes and supervising the student body are only a few duties of vice-principal Mr. Larry Riehle. Franklin Township Community School Corpora- tion is supervised by qualified people responsible for all policy making concerns of our educational program. To these people we as students owe a sincere acknowledgment of our appreciation for their diverse efforts to improve our school system. To these people we will ever be indebted, for with- out their concern we would leave Franklin Central unprepared to face the future. office Personalities Add Daily to School Life Taking care of school business, office secretary Mrs. Francis Jones is a valuable addition to Franklin Central. Moreover, Mrs. Anita Hughes supervises the bookstore w ith expert care just as Mrs. Isabelle Westby, school nurse, tends to the clinic and in- structs family living and sex education. The Guidance Department is an important asset to Franklin Central. The counselors not only plan the curriculum but confer with each student and help him plan his best course of study. Tests are given by the department for college entrance, placements, and achievement. The bookstore and clinic are run for the bene- fit of the students and are supervised with considerable care. Planning next year ' s curriculum is the task of guidance counselors Mrs. Eileen Thomas, Miss Melaine Burk, Miss Elizabeth Good, and Mr. Thomas Potts. Seniors ' Sights Aim Toward Last F.C.

" Halls of Ivy ' ' Reminds Seniors ' Past Years The Class of 1969 was spiritually honored at the Baccalaureate service May 25. " How to Get Enough Out of Life " was the address topic of Reverend Reynolds, our guest speaker. The candle lighting ceremony was conducted by Daria Mason, and it followed the speech. During the ceremony, the choir sang " The Halls of Ivy " reminding each sen- ior of different school experiences that have hap- pened the last four years. The song also was a reminder that never again would any of us be a part of Franklin Central as we had been for four years before. ■ BT. f ■ r. Four Years at F.C. Completed by the Class of 1969 Commencement is an end and a beginning for an individual. It ' s the end of following a chosen pattern of family life, and it ' s the end of one ' s high school years. It ' s the beginning of doing as one chooses and wishes, of designing one ' s own future highway to follow. The world seemed so far, but with graduation draws so very near. Not only does the future pose a question mark in the minds of seniors, but the past four years flash through their minds with happy memories and experiences. Class members may be lost to the future, but all the memories can never be forgotten. One can never forget the last float built for Homecoming, nor the last Blue and White Revue, nor the Hall Decorating Contest for sectionals. Graduation night, as the Class of 1969 sang the Alma Mater, it marked the beginning — " Hail to thee dear Franklin Central . . . " and the end — " Hail, all hail, farewell.

A place where Flashes Follow Thru; and now like a clock striking twelve — we must begin again. Yet before we strike one — look back into the past year and see the foundation our future is built on. Flashes came close, against Decatur and Shelby- ville, to wrapping up the number one spot. Yet when defeat came, we accepted it, for nothing raps the spirit of Flashes. Remember the many dance steps we had to learn for Blue and White Revue? Then recall the footsteps we left and the ones we must follow. The 1968-69 Flashback is a roadmap of the steps we ' ve already taken. It will serve as a guide for others, and as a trailmarker when we wish to retrace our paths. As Flashes we ' ve Followed Thru, to the end of the road, to the end of the 1968-69 school year. J; r - ' l ]J ° Q. MtJ Ai fAO ji ' " W ' 70 ' ■ - o- o- o - ' -.iy- ' ( { ? ' - i r i; -
