I really like them, but they ' re kind of hard on the posterior end. (Susie Rosen- berg) . I think the benches in the commons were a good idea so people could just sir and do nothing. (Don Walker) The candy sales provided a fun, yet worthwhile, money-making project for the students. (Susie Roseberg) I didn ' t like the Mid-American singers at all. I didn ' t like what they sang or how they sang it. I don ' t like their kind of music! (Deb- bie Lewis). . I liked the Mid- American singers because I like songs and their dancing. (Kim Shumway) 1 think the fire was sort of an advantage for Garrett. A small town needs new businesses and ideas to keep on prospering, and the fire just might be the start of something great — you never know! (Joyce Schultz) I thought the Jr.-Sr. picnic was really fun. It ' s neat to see all the teachers playing softball and stuff instead of teaching. (Anon.) . The food at the picnic was really greatl (Randy Surfus) . . .

All I can say about the play is that I loved it. (Tom Newman) . . . Although it took alot of hard work, I never have enjoyed anything as much in my life. (Debbie Lampe) . The all school play was a lot of fun. I never realized before that Garrett had so much talent. (Phil Kuykendall) From the play I found that our school has a large amount of untapped talent. I just wish that we had a better fine arts depart- ment so that some of it could be discovered and used. I hope Hello, Dolly proved it. (Teresa Koskie) . . . After two years of idleness, the fine arts department took on the difficult task of performing the famous broad- way musical — Hello, Dolly. Through alot of hard work and over 4,000 man hours, the show was presented with much success. The play was light and humorous, with a large amount of the entertainment coming from songs and dance numbers. Without the devoted time of the direc- tor Miss Koons, the musical director Mr. John Branam, and the choreographer Miss Jordan Hamm, Hello. Dolly would not have been A SMASHING SUCCESS:!!!! One important thing that a girl should remember is to always be herself. (Debbie Lampe) . . I feel that your personality should carry more weight than poise or physical beauty in a beauty pag- eant. Even when you are under pressure your personality is still the real you. It ' s yours and no one else ' s. I definitely feel that your personality is your most im- portant character trait. (Ramona Miller) . . . Beauty Pageants aren ' t for everyone. Anyone who is even considering entering a beauty pageant should decide what kind of a person they think they are. Some of my feelings toward the pageant are not pleas- ant. But, that was because I was put into a situation where I was unable to be myself. (Polly Crea- ger) ... I really enjoyed the Miss Garrett Pageant. It was nice to be able to visit with all my friends after a long summer vacation. Although there was a lot of hard work involved, the Miss Garrett Pageant was an experience for everyone participating. (Jan Dove Miss Garrett ' 73). After Roush and Bloom came the election became a big success, with over 459 participants. (Steve Zeider) . . . , Listening to Roush and Bloom was fun; I liked asking them ques- tions about current issues. (Diane Gingery) Doing Vaudeville was a lot of fun, except for some of the smart remarks kids yell at you. and all that work we had to do. (Jacque Black). Everyone didn ' t stand up and shout like they did on V-J day, but you have to be glad that our guys are coming home. (Pat Whyte) . . I was glad to see it end, the Viet- nam War that is. Maybe now Nix- ons era of peace for America can become a reality. Who knows, we might have an everlasting world peace. (Kevin Derrow). When I stood and yelled ' " the Bri- tish are coming! " I didn ' t know what I was doing. After I sat down 1 asked myself why I did it; when people told me what I did I didn ' t believe them. (Randy Endsley) ... 1 can ' t really explain it. but I fell relaxed and carefree. I didn ' t have anything on m mind. H pnotism definitelv was fun, ( Debbie Leu is). LITTLE 500: The thing that made it colorful was cotton candy that was flying around — I know — I made it. (Diann Jones) ... I liked the girls buck-buck- the best. (Loren Dove) ... It was one of the best we ' ve had since I ' ve been in school. (Ralana Nodine) . . . The weather could have been better, but it was fun anyway. The girls tricycle race was very exciting! (Mary Reed) It was a fun experience for all classes. Even though the pushball got busted, the juniors and seniors got along fine. (Hiram Walker). . . . It was cold outside, but it was good. (Jody Adams) . . . This has been the best Little 500 yet. The chess tournament will be better next year with more people. (Jens Sorenson) ... I loved the tacos! (Laurie Derickson) 1973 ' s Little 500 featured nine events. In the boys soccer game, the sophomores downed the fresh- men 1-0. Shannon Derrow and Tina Fostic won the girls tricycle race. The juniors lost to the seniors 33- 1 in a last minute soccer game. The junior high chess tournament was won by Jeff Mellot over Lars Sorenson. The team of Esselburn, Martin, Simon, and Rassel captured the junior high bike race while the senior high bike race was won by the team of Newman, Carr, Ellert and Christ- iieb. The girls football game was won by the seniors with the score of 22-0. Many clubs participated by selling food. Spanish, Latin, O.E. A., Varsity Cheerleaders, and the sophomore class had booths. It was fun and dandy. (Jerry Bow- man) . . . The food was good. (Brian Flesh) . . . The refs were rotten in the freshman-sophomore soccer game, especially Mr. Crist. (Hank Carper) ... It gave all clubs a chance to participate. (Karen Gent- is) . . It was out-of-sight! (Karen Feasel) ... It was good to get out of school. (Dave Claxton) . The tacos were good. (Steve Harmon) The junior high bike race was very fast: Walker was a great con- testant. (David Walker) . . I thought the girls buck-buck was good and fun. And the sophomore girls did not cheat! Also the snow- cones were really great. (Becky Smith) ... It looked like it was snowing because the cotton candy machine overflowed. (Denny Smith) ?

(Greg Shippy) . . . I really thought that the hypnotist did a nice job with the kids. It was fun to watch all the kids who were under. (Pat Costin) .1 think everybody had a good time. (Randy Mcintosh) I still can ' t believe that we decorated two w hole months for one little night! But I have to admit it was worth it. (Kay Christ- lieb) . After all the hard work, time, money, and effort invested in the prom, Tm glad it was a success. (Jody Witherspoon) . . . The week- end rain did not dampen any spirits! (Denny Smith) ... I never knew Debbie Beber was such a swinger! (Anonymous) . The food at the Prom was decent. I ' m glad it was a serve-yourself type thing. (Randy Surfus) . Tom Wiley highlighted the weekend at Wawasee by diving off of a raft that was on shore. (Holly Fargo) I was messing a- round. (Tom Wiley) LUNCH — It ' s more like a snack to me. (Tony Blomeke) . . . I ' m glad there is an ala carte line, but I think it needs a little more variety. (Anon.) . . SMOK- ING — The students should have privileges of smoking in at least the student lounge. No facilities are given towards the student concerning this, but just strict regula- tions against it. (Anon.) . . . Why don ' t they put ashtrays in the restrooms? (Anon.J . . . DETENTIONS — I like the little pink slips. There ' s something about them that makes everyone go crazy. (Anon.) . . . It ' s all right as long as you can bring a friend along. (Denny Boice) . . . PARKING LOT — It needs improved badly. It ' s a good place to park if you want to go out at noon and find your car buried up to its axel in mud. (Kay Christlieb) . . . It ' s too small for the amount of car driven to school. (Brent Steigmeyer) ... It is so destitute, so muddy, so holey and hilly that it is rented to NASA for test lunar landings. (Mark Zimmerman). 16 Having the restrooms closed kinda made me mad. There were limes when I had to go to the John between classes and I had to walk all the way from the junior high to the corner and back again making me late for class. (Doug Shenk) I can remember last ear when spring came around, and we could no longer play basket- ball in the gym. That got to me. I think that ' s what I like about the present administration. These guys under- stood that we like to play even in the spring, so now we play; it isn ' t like last year when there was nothing to do before class. (Walt Goldsbery) I think playing basketball before class in the morning puts me in the right frame of mind. Playing basketball wakes me up and gets me going. (Dave Luellen) ... I enjoyed the pep sessions this year when the administration and teachers got a pie in their face or dunked in a pool of water. (Mike Krocker) Pies in the face and getting dunked were clever ua s to get the kids to yell at the pep sessions, and I feel the team enjo ed them top. (Sheila King) I was glad when there was no more home room except on Wednesdays. Nou I have more time in bed. (Mike Walton). 17 WHAT GHS THINKS ABOUT CURRICULUM " Semester Classes Are An Advantage to Students.

The most important thing I ' ve learned in English class this year was to be able to get in front of a crowd and speak half-way intelligently. (Bobbie Finn) . The new English system is great because you can take a variety of courses in one year. (Paul Surfus) " Latin and Spanish Live Today — in a Culture, As a Language " Latin is not dead for it lives in other languages which derive a part of their vocabulary from Latin. It also lives in the heritage it has gi- ven us. (Cathy Cobbs) Latin is prevalent in the scientific and medical fields which will help me after graduation. (Anon.) ... 1 de- cided to take Spanish because I wanted to learn a language that can be used in traveling. (.Anon.)

When we won the conference I felt like I was in heaven because we all wanted it so bad and just decided we would do any- thing to win it. With everybody giving their all, the good coaching, we knew we couldn ' t be beat. (Tom Newman) Last year ' s team had more spirit and talent, but this year ' s team had more togetherness and desire. The NEIC title gave Garrett a good reputation and a tradition to hold on to for the coming years. The coaches and the players got along very well this year and the practices were a lot different than last year ' s because of the quality of the team. My biggest challenges this year were to win the conference and to get selected to the all conference team. (Greg Shippy) I think Mr. Hutton and Mr. Wiant were the main rea- sons we won the conference since we didn ' t have an over- bundance of talent. The coaches put desire in us. Hard work, desire, and cooperativeness between coaches and players make up a winning team. I liked the ruling on overtime because we won the Angola game in overtime which we needed to win the conference. The biggest challenge to the team as a whole, was to win it last year when we were expected to. (Ron Kock) Most of the time the team and coaches got along real well. The team got along extremely well. We were a close team. I liked the new overtime ruling because we won the only overtime game we ever played. It ' s best to be a winner or loser, not something in between. Pride is the main quality that makes a good team. On the front of our practice jerseys the word PRIDE was printed.

Grid Iron Men End Season With Good Record If it wouldn ' t have been for the neu overtime ruling, we probably wouldn ' t have won the conference. Last year ' s team was probably bigger and had more potential, but a couple of key injuries at the wrong time caused us not to win. The NEIC meant a great deal to me this year because it was our last year for playing. (Randy Surfus). The boys followed rules and directions well this year and we didn ' t have too many problems. I think the most challenging task this year was to win the conference and we did it! The most important game this year was the Columbia City game as that v as the game that the cham- pionship rested upon. The new overtime ruling was an ad- vantage to us. The Angola game, which we won in over- time, was an important game that pushed us on our w ay to winning the conference. Some of the gu s didn ' t think we had the talent that last year ' s team had. but this years team had the pride and desire which helped them to gain prestige.

(Andy Dircksen) Practices would have been easier if the Seniors wouldn ' t have given us a hard time about being junior varsity. (Steve Tarlton) The best part of the season was the meat squad, when the varsity played the reserves in scrimages. (Steve Walton) Practices were rough but they paid off during the season. (Bob Flanagin) The backfield was always messed up and the quarterback never knew what he was doing. (Mark Zimmerman) The coach was fairly rough on us but it helped us to make the season a successful one. (Larry Zecca) The Garrett reserves of ' 72 possess nearly all the qualities of becoming a great football power in the future seasons. Their main attributes are ones of size and speed. Averaging 200 poinds across the line as reserves, these young Railroaders will have the credentials to provide Garrett with a dazzling display of excellent gridiron in the ' 73 season.

Eastside was the most important game to me this year because the team finally won a game and I finally got to play. (John Blomeke) In the practices we had good drills to build our bodies and minds and good talks with the coaches to learn more about the game of football. (Pete Wade) The Eastside game was probably the most important game to the team because we had not won any games yet this year. We had tied some but this was our chance to prove ourselves to be a good team. Practices were hard, too. but I guess you need hard ones if you want a winning team. (Matt EUert) The most important game was East Noble because it showed we could take anyone if we tried. (Kevin Hull) The practices were hard but worth every minute of it.

" This year ' s team wasn ' t that bad considering the fact that there were few players returning with varsity experi- ence I ' ve played basketball every day since fifth grade. I love the game that much The most dif- ficult thing for me this year was to find the five best players to put on the fioor The team could have been better if the shooting had improved The game rU remember was the first one that I coached when we won on a basket with five seconds left Basketball builds character besides providing entertainment Next year you have to pick Garrett to be tough. (Coach Byrd) Basketball means entertainment and a lot of running to me because I like competition. When you compete and come out on top you feel good. (Dave Lash) The coach ' s discipline is fair but sometimes he expects too much. (Greg Shippy) Right now. Garrett bas- ketball is trying to get better, and in the future it will be even better. (Randy Worden) Basketball means fun. (Dave Lash). Reserve Team Promotes a Competitive Spirit The hardest task for me is getting in the game. (Ron Shafer) ... To me b-ball means sweat, not too much blood and very few tears. (Paul Rassel) . . . Basketball is valuable at Garrett because it gives us better things to do on Friday and Saturday nights other than getting into trou- ble. (Kim Oster) . . .

A cheerleader is the one that yells when her team is doing fine; the one who cheers them when they ' ve lost, know- ing they ' ll do better next time. A cheerleader paints all the signs and stays late after school; she practices whenever she can and goes to bed late as a rule. A cheerleader is loyal, a cheer- leader is strong. She always tries to do her best; she tries to do no wrong. A cheerleader is a little sad when the year nears an end; but when she has to give it up, she ' s glad of what she ' s been.

(Charles Rowe) ... I feel that all members of the school board should be open-minded, impartial, and they should have the guts to stand up for their beliefs. A good school board member should always devote time to meetings, because this is also a important part of being a board member. (Joseph McCor- kel) . . . Teachers are human. One of the lovable character- istics of humans is that they are subject to error just like anyone else. (Charles Rowe) . . . One of the hardest decisions that we had to make dealt with firing a teacher. Also, the dicision that dealt with teachers salaries for next year was a hard decision to make. (Joseph McCor- kel) ... It is the responsibility of the Administration to co-ordinate all facets of the instructional program. (Charles Puff) ... I want the best possible educational opportunities for the community, and I feel that being a School Board member is one way to do my part. (Gene Bartles) ... In handling disciplinary matters, the Ad- ministration is concerned that the views of the student as well as those of the teacher are presented and a decision is made in a fair way. (Charles PufO • . The School Board has responsibility. (Gene Bartles) . . . Principal Paul McFann Remarks: My first year as an administrator has been extremely rewarding, enjoyable and exciting I have no regrets about changing jobs, but as is true in any situation you miss seeing the in- dividuals with whom you have been working . I ' ve had to make small adjustments from vocational director to Principal. As a vocational director my duties were basically to coordinate efforts. As Principal, I am respon- sible for coordinating efforts of the school I am extremely impressed with the cooperative attitude of the students and the staff The favorite part of my job is observing the students. Assistant Principal John Hutton Remarks: I have enjoy- ed my first year as an administrator . . Although I do miss coaching It has put a different light on the school as I am now on the other side of the fence. Also I know some people feel different toward me now that 1 am an administrator I think that the school ' s attitude as a whole is pretty good, but there is always room for improvement The favorite part of my job is seeing improvement in students who have always had discipline problems When I have to go to extremes in disciplining someone is really the only time the job is distasteful. 91 (1) MARY CLABAUGH; Vocational Sec- retary (2) JUDY CASEY; Office Secretary (3) ESTHER RENCH; Office Help (4) Working in the office and library are ROBIN LANGE.

It can also be the most frightening. To one day wake up and have to start life is not an easy thing to do, but you must be prepared for it. It ' s all there is. (Joe Thomas) .. 1 am facing graduation with mixed emotions. I ' m very optimistic about the future but I did have a great time here. (Mark Michael) ... I think graduation is a lot of tradition but I think it ' s nice. It gives the student something to remember for a long time afterwards. It ' s the last thing the whole class does together, ever again. (Holly Fargo) . . . Graduation is a feeling of happiness but yet of sadness too. You look back at all the times you remember in school, but yet you have alot to look forward to, too. (Lorraine Asher) . . At first I thought graduation was the greatest. But as I looked into the gym being prepared for the graduation ceremonies, I thought that it ' s really scarey. There won ' t be anything to come back to next year. (Ruth Ann Koehl) . . . It ' s exciting but kind of scarey. I mean you ' ve been going to school most of your life and now you ' re finally getting out. (Mary Ann Henderson) . .

Without their help, this school could not function as well as it does. Our students have a way to school, are able to eat a decent meal, and can study in nice, clean classrooms. In Memory RUBY PENZIN To be bom is to live, second by second. In a world that offers the dimensions of life. The friendships, the happy- times, the times of learning, and too, the times of sorrow and of loss. The time up until that last second, when a friend is lost.
