Gotta move . . Gotta get out. Going to leave this place! We ' ll make new tracks, because the old ones ran into walls. We are alive. Moving, massing, making a new path — for the new people. Psyching out on ourselves: on the red, hot lava of youth that boils, bubbles, and bursts from within us. We are a new generation, the one crying PEA CE! ■and declaring a war on pollution. We preach love, and hate the stagnation of apathy. The 60 ' s are gone with the wind — that blew the Kennedys, Hullabaloo, and the clouds away. And the sun ' s shining through, baby, all over Generation ' 70. Homecoming Hysteria Hails Heavenly Height A high strung mind, nimble fingers, and that " certain someone " are the essentials of a colorful homecoming. After spiritedly spending exhausting nights non-ceasingly stuffing napkins, stapling chicken wire, and borrowing lumber, the annual celebration arrives with an instantaneous itupact. The subdued judges reimburse the sophotnore creators for their diligent endeavors by bestowing them with the renowned honor of first place. Disheartened, the losing classes agree to start earlier next year. The autumn of ' 69. after royal investigation, finds its idols majestic in Beth Baird and Danny McFarland. Regretfully. the evening draws nigh, but as it succumbs to the seventies its auras transcend to the next generation of awaiting participants. " Feeling pretty, witty, and gay " after fran- tically searching days for a distinctive home- coming attire are queen candidate hopefuls (left to right) Susie Root, Bonnie Young, Patti Brandt, Jean Kitky, Beth Baird, and Nancy McFarland. An exquisitely designed tiara and lovely roses are presented to Queen B eth Baird; a suitable climax to a " charm- ing and entrancing " evening. Senior Conventions Inject Political Enthusiasm In his acceptance speech, Gary Baldwin, the 1969 senator from the Federalist Party, ex- presses his gratitude to his loyal supporters. The Feds spent hours designing badges, writ- ing slogans, making posters, and cutting confetti for their cause. Nats are Great! A minority leader with majority im- pact, Wayne Wilson, with, hopes of political ecstasy, delivers his acceptance speech as Senior Representative. Despite a gallant campaign, the Nationalist Party suffered a tight loss to the Federalist Party. The newly crowned homecoming king. Holly Yensel, shares the limelight with Queen Kathy Hollcraft and her court. Members of the regal set include (left to right) seniors Jackie Burton. Bruce Westphal, Ann Hen- ricks, Mark Barclay, Holly Yensel, Kathy Hollcraft, and underclassmen Ruth Jeffs, Nick Hale, Carol Kramer, Mark Baird, Terry Dougherty, and Danny Blackwell. Kathy, Holly Reign Over February Festivities Having received the enchanting title of " Homecoming Queen " , Kathy Hollcraft is obviously quite happy, as evidenced by her tears. The rose princess. Donna Sparks, and her bashful escort, Todd Pool, stand in awe of the spotlights and enthusiastic applause. Romeo and Juliet Provide " A Time for Us ' ' The 1970 Franklin Central prom theme " A Time for Us " was well chosen as it predicted the romantic situation of the majestic queen and her radiant court. The court members include (left to right) Ruth JeflTs, Mary Frances Stillabower. Roberta Carlson, Queen Mary Whitsit, Peggy Schmidt, Laura Macaluso, Patti Brandt, Nancy Boggs, and Sherri Walker. Lights are dim and low, everyone knows how to act, without knowing what to do. An aura of refined excitement permeates the air and leaves eyes shining. As youth, " A Time for Us " seemed romantically appropriate, as did a King J ere and Queen Mary. Dates kept whispering " Just one more dance and we ' ll go " , but music kept playing, persuading us to stay on into the night. Only when theformais crisp rustle had been quieted, and the tu.x zipped into its rented home, did the memory echo that it was " A Time for Us. " (Left) Prom Queen . . . Prom King . . . can be a dream-come-true for only two juniors. The feeling Of anxiety was soon lifted as Jere Cox and Mary Whitsit were crowned King and Queen. (Above) Rented ruffled shirts and long flowing gowns move to the rhythms of each tantalizing second of " prom time. " Animated Student Productions Captivate Audience Disproving the age-old adage that money cannot buy happiness were the sophomore performers. Their skit, " Money " , stole the show receiving the award for best act and best choreography. Vibrating fingers, wide grins, and bended knees adorned the finale. The plight of a puppet is voiced by these victims; however, looks of distress changed when they were awarded best dance. .lI- I |l _ B S !i|j l| AS Above, Phi! Morgan magically masters his golden trumpet valves as he plays his way to a best intermission act award. " What do ya get when ya break the law? " — just ask any one of these experienced jailbirds, Ann Henricks, Elaine McDaniel, Nancy McFarland, and Jean Kitley. Adorned in stripes, combat boots, and balls and chains, they sing the saga of convicts in distress. of 1970 Blue and White Revue A time for discovering talent. a time for gathering together. a time for displaying originality. The Blue and White Revue arrives with an impact experienced by all. For three months students paint scenery, design costumes and originate dances while parents non-ceasingly ask. " And when is that performance? " But the exhausting hours of preparation, and tense moments when Mr. Ferris Just shakes his head pass quickly The curtains close A sigh of relief " All the world ' s a stage. " RIGHT: Heidi, characterized by Roberta Carlson, glumly refuses to listen to the ad- vice of her wise grandfather, Joe Large. - v_j, T5-3g- } Z " ' ' ABOVE As Mark Barclay is awed by the capabilities of Mr. Robert Ferris, so were the teachers, parents, and students who par- ticipated in the Blue and White Revue. Mr. Ferris spends hours rehearsing music, direct- ing students, and sometimes scolding those misfits. ABOVE: Lucky clovers were easily cited in the freshman skit, " Holiday Magic. " Prancing across the stage are shamrocks Marty Humphrey, Jackie Lowes, Susie Root, Danna Humphries, and Terry Miller. The clovers warn the audience not to " overlook those four-leaf clovers.

' ' The Egg and " Proves a Cackling Success Experiencing the primitive ways of our forefathers and living in such a crude circumstance are two entirely different subjects. But in this modern day and age there was still one family. the MacDonalds. willing to sacrifice electricity, telephones, civilization. and a bathtub to raise chickens. This became the theme of the traditional senior play produced each November. .4 well-chosen cast, freshly painted scenery, and a conscientious director all contributed to make " The Egg and T ' a cackling success. The " good neighbor " pohcy can be overdone, especially if that neighbor is constantly scurry- ing over to leave her prize-winning flowers and fool-proof tonics. Graciously accepting the vase and flowers from Daisy, Linda Yokem, is Don MacDonald, Bruce Westphal. ABOVE: Director Mrs. Barnett explains stage techniques to the senior cast.

But even patient peo- ple have their moments. Scolding her husband, neighbors, and family is the main character, Ann Henricks. Patriotism. " My Country tis of Thee, " red, white, and blue ... the symbol of our nation is still saluted and respected by the present gener atiin regardless of popular opposing opinion. The art classes chose the flag as their theme, displaying it as flying in a brisk breeze, gently folded, mistakingly misarranged, and tightly twisted. Individualist Pam Ward tightly clutches the easel supporting her painting of an old- fashioned girl adorned in a straw hat. Spring Finds Flashes Saluting Select Students Vice-principal Mr. Larry Riehle hands valedictorian Don Rockey the Dare )ou book presented by the Danforth Foundation for his achievements. Mr. Robert Ferris leans over the table and proudly issues gold key chains to his senior-band members. In order to be qualified for the insignificant, but treasurable award each musician must have com- pleted eight semesters as a band participant. Those contributors to the fine arts are (left to right): Debbie Buchanan, Terri Davis, Wayne Wilson, Mark Shearer, Dennis Reasoner, and Joe Wesseler. Shaded Tapers Glow on Anxious Faces Why don ' t we stop fooling ourselves? The game is over. over. The Baccalaureate candle lighting symbolizes the beginning of a new life and the end of the old one, while the flame of the candle itself is a symbol of eternal peace. Pictured above is senior Debbie Henderson offering fellow graduate Andy Poland a " light.

" Let your hair down. just an inch or two. Let your skin be red or green or blue. They ' ll invent a special name for you. Why? " ACADEMICS Modern math died the day man landed on the moon. History is not read from dusty, cumbersome volumes anymore. It is seen and heard on the shiny, silver, screen. Where English used to be sound, nouns, and verbs, it now consists of syntax, phonemes, and morphemes. Whether scholastic revolution or progress, the change has been accepted, and with it comes a whole new generation of brighter, better individuals. in Generation 10 Master Minds Make New Decisions for Youth " Larry ' s Laundry Service, may 1 help you? " The responsibilities of being an athletic director frequently begin with the washer and dryer but rarely are they wrung out in the locker room. Mr. Hanni ex- hausts his efforts promoting F.C. ' s valuable sportsmanship. The master minds that manipulate every move of the township school system are our school board. Each is a member of our community and does his best to improve our school system. They are Morris Green, Maynard Smith, Omer J. Smith, Donald Gleason. and Howard Martin. .Although medical science has progressed to heights. Mrs. Westby still resorts to infall- ible tender loving care. Acting as a backbone in the successful operation of the school, Mrs. Hughes serves as the school secretary. Among the many newcomers to F.C., Mrs. Sui jj Stockwell finds her endeavors time consuming an( tedious. Report cards and books are all part of he world. Uways working in his office, Mr. Robert Mason finds being super- ntendent of the FrankMn Township Community School Corporation a ' emanding drain of time, stamina, determination, and energy. Miss Elizabeth Good plans and co-ordinates curriculums areiy focusing the spotlight on vice-principal Mr. Larry Riehle, many students ,il to recognize his indispensable responsibilities. These begin with the ringing " the morning bell as he records students ' attendance. Have patience with their youth for they must battle our realities . . . they must ght for their tomorrow, today. " The awkward and often alienating role of ;cidmg where patience ends and the strong arm of discipline begins is one of le tasks executed by the principal Mr. Paul Taylor.

Sighs of discontent, a signal that change is inevitable. permeate the tense atmosphere. .Around the corner. spotless kitchen sinks glisten as the penetrating aroma of burned green beans attacks one ' s nose. Silverware clangs, bangs, falls. Pure hands work fervently as they prepare their future endeavors. Often smiling, Mrs. Marcia Miller is hailed as teacher and sometimes heroine. Disasters in the kitchen, and a catastrophe with a sew- ing machine seldom unnerve her. Imaginations Turned On to Re-create History History is the slave of time who has picked up and saved the past that his mistress heartlessly broke. She walks on, stepping on men and dodging others, while he waits in her wake to gossip with mankind and governments about where she may go next. Every year at Franklin Central, they impeach Andrew Johnson, re-fight the world wars, and elect tomorrow ' s leaders. They rebuild the governments of the world by second term, and complete term papers at 4.00 A . M. Here is one generation imitating another in hopes for a better posterity. Men who annually tell it like it was are the teachers of Franklin Central ' s history depart- ment. They are: (left) Mr. William Clarke, (bottom left) Mr. James Hoskins, and (be- low) Mr. Calvin Gullion. As though casting a spell, Mr. James Caughey penetrates the time barrier, enabling history students to experience past events. Seeking changes, students find they can only learn from, not change, history. The most important and essential aspect of a successful party organization is proper planning. The 1970 Federalist team, which represented Franklin Central at the Purdue Legislative Assembly, is shown here planning arguments and strategy for a hopeful bill. Shown left to right are Joe Large, Jim Lawrence, Jim Sparks, Mr. William Clarke, Gary Baldwin, and Mr. Jim Caughey. The elections at Franklin Central have become part of its traditional heritage, as well as being an aid in government. )9 ]m) x. our senior scholars work with Mr. Clarke, history department head, in preparation tor their Exercise in Knowledge bout. They are: Kevin Martin, Joe Grahn, Lonnie Blevins, Ed Endicott, Mark McKinney. and Sonnie Clark. Right, political philosophy student Jim Sparks reads one of the many authors discussed in this class.

At right, Natalie Fox and Don Bosenberg help to decorate the class- room, giving it the exciting aura of a political convention site. Connoisseurs of English Direct Reformationists ARE YOU LIKE SNOOPY? MMM Snoopy, another encouragement, urges pupils to read and study. This board, one of the many employed by Miss Gaines, adds variety and spice to the classroom. Term papers, that early morning pastime for all typical students, begin with the simple yet deceiving bibliography card. Above, Miss Lucille Peterson develops her lesson on the importance and usefulness of the bibliography. Mrs. Jane Morgan, senior English teacher, expounds, explains, and expostulates to the prospective term paper author on the value of timetables and the strict adherence to them. If left to themselves, stu- dents would resort to timeless tables. Mr. Marvin Knoop, an advocate of speed and skill on the basketball court, is also interested in Speed and skill in the student ' s reading ability. As head of the developmental reading program, Mr. Knoop guides stu- dents from all grades to greater reading capacities. 22 A second semester inductee into the F.C. teaching machine, Miss Darlene Gaines begins her teaching career where Mrs. Stumpf left off. Acting as a predicate to Mrs. Stumpfs subject. Miss Gaines balanced the freshman year. English, a root of our knowledge, is implanted into growing gardens, into minds. playing the role of a field, nourished by drops of facts and words. Fertilized by a helping hand encouraging growth. gardens develop by established rules, as in those of nature. Warmed by satisfaction and success. the garden flourishes . roots become a plant, reaching, reaching, to the top. Finally, harvest time arrives: some plants will wilt in a process, others will go on to nourish a world. still a few remain to fertilize those gardens who do not yet know. Upon discovering a new role in life, Mrs. Georgia Stumpf reluctantly decided that she should depart from her family of freshmen English and literature classes to travel home and there, raise a family of her own. Communications and its mediums are a concern to this pen- sive man. Coaching English, tennis, and Pilot Flashes are the pressing concerns and tasks of Mr. William Bankston. Quick to the aid of Eddie Karch and Paul Hilton, Mrs. Gayle Heath instructs with warmth, wisdom, and wit. Very much a part of Generation ' 70, she guides society ' s future leaders to profitable knowledge. Mrs. Peterson ' s sixth hour literature class sponsored the first Medieval Banquet. Its great success may be reason enough to make it an annual event. Singing a favorite ballad are minstrels Roberta Carlson, Sara Miller, Susie Peek, Emmons Berry and Paul McBee. Contemplating which gourmet dish to sample first are Peggy Schmidt and Tim Smith. The menu included such delicacies as roast pig and carrots wrapped in cabbage leaves. Avid English Student Exhibit Literary Talents Makmg Greek literature more mteresting and meaningful, the senior literature classes created murals depicting scenes from Homer ' s Iliad and Odxssev. Greek gods and goddesses materialized as many unknown talents were discovered. Stu- dents utilized their imagination to achieve originality in their works, making the murals as decorative as they were informa- tive. During the medieval banquet, a bold trumpet fanfare proclaimed the opening procession, the presen- tation of the roast pig, the wassail bowl, and the coronation of the king and queen. The trumpeteers for the evening were (left to right) Toby Schilling, David Driml, and Mark Barclay. Putting newly learned teaching meth- ods to use. Miss Sandy Connover, a student teacher under Mrs. Morgan, helps the seniors overcome the diffi- culties of writing compositions. Relaxing during lunch, Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Miner enjoy the teachers " lounge. Helpmg them overcome the fear of public speaking. Mrs. Mavis Barnett instructs her students in the fundamentals of oral communica tion. It is fourth period and a student casually glances into the hall to see a co-op member leaving behind him books, lockers, and fourth, fifth, and sixth periods. But the day has hardly begun for these laboring individuals, and the observer thankfully continues studying. Sterlizing bottles, selling scarves, and replacing points and plugs — the Vocational Industrial Club of America at Franklin Central finds it rewarding to help others as they help themselves. Serving as instructor of the co-op program, sponsor of Franlc Central ' s VICA, and head of the industrial arts department, Mr. Wilbur Meyer only pauses from a non-stop routine of job training. Co-op Program Offers True Tastes of Future Franklin Central ' s VICA is composed of a select group of vocation-minded juniors and seniors. Heading this new co-operative educational organization are the following upperclassmen: (SEA TED) Cynthia Collins, president; (STANDING, left to right) Andy Poland, vice-president; Debbie Henderson, secretary; Rosanne Berry, treasurer; and Debbie Morrow, reporter. Tools of Transition Utilized by Shop Teachers Mr. Phillip Schall diligently instructs freshman Gary Johnson in the working of a lathe. Mr. Bill Reed, graphic arts and drafting teacher, apparently has been briefly interrupted from his contemplation of future activities for one of his three drafting classes. Always listening, al- ways helping, always there, Mr. Reed wears a smile for Generation ' 70. From the sorting of the jumbled wires comes the clarity and understanding of a simple light cord. The screaming, biting of saws echoes the sound of progress. The glaring, blinding light of a torch reflects determination and willingness to perceive. Thoughts, hopes, and ideals of industrial art students mirror Generation ' 70. As junior Bob Coy constructs an electronic circuit.

As the sound oj the music becomes greater. the tension rises in proportion. The audience reacts. absorbing every musical tone. The wavering voices begin to emit words . . . words trembling with the notes upon which they ride. only to be encouraged onward by the applause of the listener. Pre-concert rehearsals require much time, patience, and effort. In preparation for the spring concert, these students strive to perfect their number. Library Keeps Pace with Today ' s Generation Just as the car is useless without a driver, so the library gives little help when deprived of a li- brarian. A connoisseur of Dewey ' s decimals and of " where-to-find-what, " Mrs. Thelma Shutt manipulates the machinations of Franklin Central ' s replete library. Row on row, cover against cover, pages nestled among pages. They sit silently waiting. Footsteps echo across the muffled air of a room wrapped in study. Tangent cellophane squeaks as a book is pulled from its burrow on the pine shelf; open it and . . . everything from the whistles of trains in Sinclair Lewis ' Main Street, to the wisdom and age-laden voices of Bartlett ' s Quotations begins to bellow in your head. Held within the walls of Franklin Central ' s library is the key to yesterday ' s locked halls of history and the door to tomorrow ' s empty ones. Presiding over the study hall (as pictured above), completing guidance department records, or working in the library, Mrs. Elsie Freese is con- stantly busy in her role as a teacher ' s aid. At left, varsity letterman Joe Cougill pre- sents an honorary letter sweater to Charles Lynn for being the school ' s best supporter. Above, as Charlie and Don Bunton watch, Kathy Patrick assembles a wallet. Tomorrow ' s Hope Provided by Today ' s Help Each person needs to learn to produce to his full capacity. and for thirty-four years Mrs. Lillian Maze, as special education instructor, has faithfully helped students do just that. She began teaching in 1925 and continued until 1 933 when she temporarily resigned to devote herself to raising a family. After her children were grown and away from home, Mrs. Maze resumed the position in 1944 and plans to retire after this year. It takes a great deal of patience and dedication to teach any class for such a large portion of your life. but the rewards, in this case, greatly outnumber the hardships. As Mrs. Maze expertly demonstrates how to lace a coin purse, Kathy Patrick intently watches her so that she might hopefully be as successful with her own project. P.E. Classes Supply a Sample of All Sports Caught in the midst of motion, freshman Mike Civils spins m high gear over his opponent. With sweat-soaked tennis shoes drumming steadily over a well-beaten path, the rigors of a period in physical education are apparent as weary gym students realize the impo rtance of maintaining good muscle tone for a healthy body. Urged by presidents and by a certain need for fulfillment . the youth of today press for physical fitness comparable to the mental fitness of their generation. Given time and exercise, the body extends itself to do credit to the mind it encompasses. Where only minutes before stood a team crouched in apprehension, now moves a jumble of jumping individuals. Left, torsos twist as spines unwind to the two-three-four of timed calisthenics. Health, physical education ' s counterpart, teaches the care of the body which the latter has helped to develop. First aid, body processes, and sex education are all a part of this course. Above, Jeorgia Emhardt and Kathy Howard bandage fellow classmate Judy McClain. Girl ' s gym teacher Miss Underwood stands beside cheerleader Jackie Burton and com- pletes another of her tasks as she bestows two-year varsity cheerleader sweaters. The knowledge of first aid has saved many lives. At F.C., the official Red Cross First Aid text is used in instructing freshmen and sophomore students on the basics of this skill. Above (left to right), sophomore health students Stephanie McDaniel, Chris Schaekel, and Vicki Sheets demonstrate how to lift the injured (Brenda Barnard) when no stretcher is available. New Lab Aids Students of Foreign Languages Through the busy wires connecting expert with novice, come hesitant voices breaking in strange new words. Madame Miner, the power-pack behind the lab, deciphers the garble. Everyone has long awaited the new equipment. Our much-used, much-needed lab is a veritable dream come true, made possible by the combined ejforts of the school board and the administration. Learning a foreign language is now simplified by the newly received lab equipment such as special headphones and various other im- plements of education. Mrs. Miner, French and English teacher at Franklin Central, enthusiastically heads the new lab, retaining the keys to the entire setup. Comment vas-tu? Refusing to speak Eng- lish in her French classes, Madame Miner ' s greatest asset is her blackboard. Mrs. Thomas has the task of teaching Latin, perhaps the most difficult language of all. Mrs, Crawley listens attentively as the members of her fifth period Spanish class recite their daily lessons with great enthusiasm. Unlike the French classes, English is acceptable in the Spanish classes. I Computerization of Today ' s Generation Adds to In both high school and college, knowing how to type is a necessity for those term papers, themes, and special reports. At Franklin Central, Mrs. Carolyn Wessel teaches the rudiments of this skill to those students wishing to develop a more legible and faster hand. Mrs. Schaekel, a student at Butler Univer- sity, did her student teaching in Franklin Central ' s business department. Adding a touch of humaneness to a world of machines is Mrs. Helen Ernstes Importance of Business Education Striving to achieve a realistic loolc at the enterprise revolving around them, the sophomores of Mr. John Gruner ' s general business classes find inspiration and understanding in the enthusiasm generated by the hands and mind of their competent instructor. Business the world of mind and machine, the backbone of the society in America today. All over this country new minds worked with new machines and new ideas. Yesterday, satisfaction came from balanced books; a thousand ciphers neatly in a row. Today it comes from seeing the right button pushed. Memorizing buttons and keys the bright and bubbly secretary finds this new decade demanding not only quick hand movements, but also an alert mind to keep up with tomorrow. From the high-tensioned rhythm of a five- minute timing to the signaling sound of the return bell, Mrs. Helen Ernstes, like all teachers, is there checking, correcting, and encouraging the student. 37 Miss Bonnie Woodruff is the coordinator of the intensive office lab. Of the many hopeful applicants only those girls who plan to make their careers in business are chosen to participate in the lab. Senior Girls Benefit from Lab Each girl has a center piece on her desk. Flowers such as these daisies provide a pleas- ant distraction for the girls; quite a change from the monotonous black letters on the typewriters and adding machines. Pencil, paper, and question give Mr. Glen Eastes opportunity and reason for exposition. Suddenly, it isn ' t grade school; this is high school. We do not take arithmetic: we study algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, math topics. However, you do not have skinny arms and legs anymore, or baby fat, or braces, or2+2= 4.

The facts we hurriedly had to cram into our heads for an important test? More than likely, it will be dissecting right before lunch, frantically trying to finish lab before the bell rang, seeing one of our own eyelashes in the microscope and thinking we had discovered a freak amoeba, dreaded pop quizzes, arguments , the frustration of being thoroughly confused; but even more, when our jumbled thoughts fell into proper perspective, the satisfaction of being able to say.

F. C. ' s team displayed the combination needed to win the Capitol District Conference and bring a record of 5 wins and 4 losses back home. The course for such a winning season could be found only in the enthusiasm of the players added to the coaching skills displayed by Coach Bill Reed and his assistants, coaches Hoskins, Gruner, and Cougill. These men worked together to whip our players into a victorious team and are to be graciously thanked for the pride and prestige they have brought to Franklin Central. Coach Bill Reed can mark up another winning season on his slate and breathe freely now that the season is done and that he is assured of a good season next year. Dad ' s Night was a complete success in terms of the fans although the Flashes were forced to defeat by Decatur Central ' s Hawks, — 34. Fans and Fathers Back Flashes ' Fight Force Franklin Central fans remain optimistic this season as they eagerly promoted the Flashes through both victories and defeats. Flashes Edge Past Host Beech Grove, 16 — 14 The reserve squad has worked hard this season and are to be commended for it. They practiced long and vigorously under Coach Jim Hoskins and have proved this many times in their games. Although they started off at a slow pace, they soon got in the groove and poured on the force. They valiantly ran their offensive plays under quarterback Larry Boggs " leadership and fiercely fought the opponents though facing setbacks that would defy another team. Dan McFarland, rushing for the TD, re- ceives the " old pigskin " with skill and grace. He has received many touchdown passes such as this example at the Jamboree and is one of the outstanding players we have. VARSITY FOOTBALL Opponent F.C. Pike (Jamboree) Beech Grove Greenfield New Palestine Pike (Homecoming) This halfback won ' t get far as T. Schilling and E. Ridout do their job. On the reserve squad, there is one guy that is always spoken of greatly; he is Dan Hood. The game may be heading in the opposite direction, but you can be sure that if the ball is given to Dan, things will take a turn for the better. He can break through a hole in the line and make the touchdown with no faults. Dan ' s notable fleetness and ruggedness reveal him as a remarkable football player. 45 FRONT Coach Hoskins, R.

The constant force which kept the butterflies in our stomachs and the shivers on our spines, kept the Flashes moving as games slid into double overtimes. The daze of apprehension as buzzer and basket rang simultaneously to announce victory or defeat held the team tight with stamina as they played hard to please their fans. Senior John Bymaster, precariously sus- pended above the heads of his adversaries, confidently demonstrates his persevering dex- terity on the basketball hardwood.

The newly painted scorer ' s bench becomes a place of relaxation for the exuberant Pep Club officers; Jackie Burton, treasurer; Barbara Brandt, vice-president; and Becky Barnes, president. Rarely caught sitting, these girls spiritedly led the indispensable cheerblock. " Celebrate, celebrate, cheer for the Flashes. " And that was just what the Pep Club did during the year oj football and basketball firsts. Celebrating during the victorious moments, cheering under any circumstance, the Pep Club shared their hopes, evenings, and voices. Shared them with a team that maybe did not hear every yell echoed from the sidelines, but that was certainly the first to notice if only fifty out of one-hundred and fifty girls were present. A year that set the pace for the seasons of the seventies included a Christmas parly, a sign-making contest, and the introduction of a spirit stick. The coveted award was bestowed on the sophomore class. Thank-yous, spirit awards, and gestures of appreciation — compensations for a lost voice.

Whether marching in a parade, playing a concert, performing a half time show, or leading a cheer. they provided well-received entertainment for every individual taste. Much of the band ' s success should be credited to the skillful as well as experienced direction of Mr. Robert Ferris whose " 100%-plus " dedication kept the band in its martial appearance during performances. p Mounted behind their instruments of rhythm are F.C. " s versatile percussionists: Stephanie Sex- ton, Jim Walker, John Reed, Kevin Wheatley, Steve Southwood, Don Sweeney, Rick Ritter, Steve Aldrich, Mike Shimer, Amy Brandli.

Profiteering Popcorn Peddlers Pay for Prom Dreams of the prom prompted ambitious juniors to earn money by selling cokes, popcorn, and candy at the concession stand. Their class officers include secretary, Sherri Walker; treasurer, Betsy Tandy; vice-president, Susie Peek; and president, Emmons Berry. Junior year, and at last the status of being an upperclassnian is reached. Probably the most exciting year, it is highlighted by the spring prom, failure slips in chemistry class, and the busy concession stand. But these were only the high points to a year that crowned J ere Cox and Mary Whiisit. and journeyed to Fairytale Land. With the advance of achievement tests and summer teen canteens, the junior anticipates the senior year — that year when merciless revenge threatens to be exercised and added privileges enjoyed.

Advanced classes, crowded curriculunis, and heavier books — the sophomore year proves to be a time when excelling academically is of foremost concern. But " all work and no play " does make a dull year. Taking the necessary precautions against this ill-fate were the 1969- 70 sophomores.

A nation stood in relieved thankfulness as Apollo 13 returned home. Economists cautioned of recession while marketing mothers protested inflation, and Wall Street set nervously as the Dow-Jones industrials bounced like the hem of a woman ' s skirt in the midst of liberation. Hollywood went for sale, the mailmen went on strike, and crowds marched on Washington wrapped in peace signs and long hair, followed by hard hats and waving flags. Generation plotted against generation, while a polluted environment plotted against both. Four children fell on a college campus, and with them went bridges between a now famous gap. Things happened here, too. Uni-Gov went into effect, Edgewood Avenue was repaved. Wigs, falls, and coulottes became commonplace, as did bells, beads, and ma.xis. The south wing gained ten more rooms, and the community gained five more subdivisions. Polls, pep sessions, moratoriums, and clean-ups demonstrated the willingness of students to become involved. A year of voices and questions, of answers and silence. Division that stretched from the branches of our government, down to the roots of our families. A picture of youth, getting life, coming alive, and finding each other . . . and themselves. 1970.. . the birth certificate for a generation . . . Generation " 70. It is the custom, in this space, to list the positions of the various members of the FLASHBACK staff. Scott Humphries was the editor-in-chief, which means he drew the designs for the pages, conceived the theme and book in general, and supervised the staff. Kathy Dieck was the assistant editor, thus, she did all tne things Scott could not (or would not) do, such as correcting errors, filing pictures, and keeping the staff from collapsing after working all day and all night to meet a deadline. Ellen Lowery drew the layouts for the Personalities section. That is, she arranged for your picture to be the same size as Mary Barnlows. Larry Lowes spent third periods working as yearbook photographer, when unhampered by a broken arm. Bruce Westphal and Elaine McDaniel are the editors of the senior section. Bruce also drew the cover design. Paul McBee and Scott Smale were the recognized originators of the Sports section and at this point it becomes a little confused. Ruth Jeffs, Sylvia Burch, and .Carol Pedigo helped on all the prenamed sections plus, with the rest of the staff, did the Academics, School Life, and Organizations sections. Nancy McFarland, because of her speed and ability, supplied a majority of the copy throughout the book. We are a staff, a unit, and are all responsible for the book (?) you holdit in your hands. Thanks go to Mr. Bernard Burch for the division page artwork, to Mr. Bill Wright, for his and American Yearbook ' s help, to Towers Studio for the majority of the pictures, and to Franklin Central for providing the school and student body. Special thank-yous go to our three sponsors Mrs. Georgia Stumpf, Miss Bonnie Woodruff, and Miss Darlene Gaines. It should be noted also, that it was Miss Gaines who spent the tedious and tiring hours beside the staff when working after school on a deadline. If our efforts have not left you with a memory . . . perhaps Simon and Garfunkel can; " Time it was, And what a time it was. It was ... A time of innocence, A time of confidences, Long ago ... it must be . . . I have a photograph. Preserve your memories; They ' re all that ' s left you. " K s - . r % w p . ' .4 f V V,
