Everything, from the school to the local streets, was under construction. Each day the people we met helped to build our personalities. The classes we attended helped to build our minds. Our activities helped us to grow as individuals and our sports helped us to build our bodies. This year brought many challenges, surprises, and changes. The year left us with happy memories and the knowledge that we can meet those challenges and be successful. Every person involved with the school has grown in some way this year. 1980 was the year to build! Stacy Harter, senior, samples the carpet choices for the building trades ' house.

Included on the teachers team were Mr. Fred Sowles, Mr. Mark Ober, Mrs. Deb Lepley, Miss Cheryl Peters, Mr. Steve Short and Mr. Jim Herzer. The donkeys posed some problems when they decided to lead their riders. Many players spent time on the floor when the donkey they were riding bucked them off. The merchants edged the teachers 16-14. The junior class netted around $1,500 which they used for the junior- senior prom. B NSEBALL AND BASKETBALL Donl eys psych up for the teacher-merchants game. Before the game begins, donl eys huddle up to review team strategy. During the game it became evident that the donkeys ' goal was to keep the players off their backs. 4 FALL TRADITIONS GHS Students follow fall traditions Band members went through the 1980 school year without a football field to practice or perform on. The band met each morning at 6:30 a.m. to practice on the parking lot. GHS band members performed in many marching contests during the year including competitions at East Noble and Lewis Cass. Competing in the class C division, the forty-one member band entered the NISBOVA contest. Drum majorette Joyce Bandy led the members through their marching routines.

FALL TRADITIONS 5 Peak of building project brings inconveniences The beginning of the 1979-80 school year brought with it the peal of construction on the building. School began with no bells, no intercom and very crowded conditions. Announcements were made via the " daily telegraph " which was read during third period classes. Students were doubling and tripling up in lockers that previously had been too small and inconvenient for one person. The agriculture facility, which was completed in early 1979, housed the agriculture classes, the special education classes and guidance counselor Lenore Lewis. Guidance counselors Becky Derrow and Larry Piety put their office in the home economics room. Assistant principal Jack Gibson and Mrs. Esther Rench established their office in the west concession stand. Principal Gaylord Toll and Mrs. Jayne DeLong moved their office to the elementary building. Miss Leslie Wise ran the library out of the south-east concession stand again this year. Football squads had no practice field and no home games. Players traveled to Auburn every night to practice. The band members had to practice marching on the parking lot. Many hallways in the school were closed at the beginning of school. This made traveling from one place to another more complicated. The hallway by the cafeteria was the only link to rooms on the north side of the building. Carpenters Jack Bickley, kneeling, and " Big Red " build locker frames. Doug Ashenfelter seals the dry wall in the new hallways. i Red, blue, white and silver lockers line the new locker commons. Each student received a locker late in December. The locker commons is centrally located near the offices and the media center. The multi- colored locker facility, containing 538 new lockers features separate book and coat sections. The new agricult ure facilities, including a classroom and shop area were put to use in early 1979. The outside ramp was installed in October. Work on the media center reaches its peak in early January. Blue, red and white study centers line the east wall. Mr. Ray Souder, head custodian, shows Principal Gaylord Toll and Superintendent Kermit Weddell the progress on the office facilities. New facilities put to use Crash! Boom! Such were common sounds during most of the construction at GHS. But following the noise and inconveniences, the new facilities were put to use. The parking lots and outside lights were completed by the end of November. Students moved into the 538 new lockers in late December. Each student received a locker with separate coat and book compartments. Administrators and guidance counselors moved into their new offices January 21, 1980. Included in the center court area are the media center, a teachers ' lounge, offices, two sets of rest-rooms and a nursing station. Painter Bob Bruce puts the finishing touches on pillars near the lockers. Senior Class produces 3 act comedy ' Harvey ' The rabbit " Harvey " is visible only to Elwood P.

It was Inconvenient busing the players to Auburn every night for practice and we did not have a home field on which to play our games, " said Varsity Football Coach John Hutton. Team members ended the season with a 2-8 record. " The record was disappointing because I sincerely felt we were a better team than our record showed, " said Coach Hutton, " The attitude of the team was excellent. They deserved a better record. " Seniors Bob Isham and Paul Ewing served as t he team captains this season. Paul was named Most Valuable Player by his fellow team members. The high points of the 1979 football season were the wins against Whitko and Bluffton. Coach Hutton is optimistic about next year ' s squad. " I look forward to next year. We will have a new practice field and a new game field. This alone should improve the spirit of next year ' s team, " said Coach Hutton.

Apologies are extended to anyone deserving credit who was not recognized. A special thanks goes out to all faculty members who helped the yearbook staff in many ways. This was the first year for a publications class at GHS. This class produced nine issues of the student newspaper, the SIGNAL. This class also did most of the work on the 1980 edition of the Aeolian. Three students attended Indiana University ' s High School Journalism Institute for two weeks to get ready for the year. All three students won awards in their areas. Ed Jarrett attended the photography section and was awarded the Randy Siddens award for his outstanding interest and work in photography. Marsha Haffner attended the special editors workshop and won an award for her outstanding achievements in this area. Wendy Goldie, who was attending lU for the third summer, won an honorable mention on her editor ' s brief. She also received an Indiana Daily Student IU journalism scholarship. The yearbook began the year on a down note. With more than three- fourths of last year ' s left to complete, the staff faced an almost hopeless cause. After spending almost the first half of the year completing the 1979 edition and getting organized, the sixth period journalism class came through to complete the 1980 Aeolian on time.

These classes meet on alternate days as part of the fine arts classes. The students learn to sing in three -part mixed harmony. Junior high swing choir members are selected through audition. This allows for a smaller group so that the more interested and talented students can work. These choirs usually perform the more popular music. Several junior high students competed in the vocal solo and ensemble contest. At this contest members divide into divisions based on the difficulty of their music. The vocalists then perform their music and are judged. ABOVE— FRONT ROW-Jeannie Brown, Lori Hollinger, Peggy Crise, Mora Snider, Debbie Bush, Jackie Kruger, Todd Gorman, Tim Crowe, Chris Kinney.

JH SPIRIT CLUB 95 We build our minds through classes. CU SSES 97 GHS vocational program involves many students " People don ' t realize how many students are involved in some kind of vocational course, " stated Mrs. Victoria Short, head of the vocational department at GHS. " At some time during high school probably half of the students are enrolled in a vocational class, " added Mrs. Short. The vocational department at GHS covers a broad area. The classes offered are auto mechanics, building trades, business lab, interdisciplinary co-op, woods, advanced woods, welding, beginning metals, advanced metals, drafting I and II, adult living, child development, housing, clothing I and II, foods I and II, consumer education and interpersonal relations. The vocational department took on one major project through the year. Many classes worked together to finish the fifth annual building trades house. The house was designed by Bobby Johnson, a 1978-79 drafting student. Blue prints were made by the 1979-80 drafting class. Mr. Andrew Giegold ' s agriculture classes did the landscaping. Mrs. Barbara Olin ' s classes did the interior decorating. The actual construction was done by Mr. Owen Bradley ' s building trades classes. The house was open for public viewing on May 10 and 11. Vocational courses at GHS are geared to prepare students for the job market after leaving high school by teaching them how to work with their hands and use business skills.

LEFT— Junior Brenda Malcolm works on an accounting problem. GHS business classes offer students the opportunity to learn and develop business skills. These skills may then be used on the job or they may be applied to other classes which the student is taking. Students in accounting learn to work with the financial records of a business. Each class works with practice sets which are practical applications of the skills learned. General business students are taught basic business principles. They learn how to budget money and how to work with a check book. Typing students develop speed and accuracy while developing skills in sending letters and doing term papers. Shorthand and notehand classes teach students how to take notes quickly and then transcribe them for use. Business machines students learn how to operate different office machines which the students got to use. Business lab classes work in a realistic office setting. This year students answered the in-coming calls to the school during second and third periods. Many business classes went on field trips during the year. Some of the places they visited include Dana Corporation in Auburn and Churubusco, Lincoln National Bank, International Business College and Bassett Office Supply. BUSINESS 101 Math department adds computer class for seniors The math department has spent its time giving GHS students more problems to solve. A new computer class was added to the 1979-80 curriculum. Mr. David Neal taught the new course to seniors. A student ' s prerequisites for the new course were algebra and geometry. Seventh grade students got a surprise this year. They took an eighth grade Algebra Prognosis Test. Those students who scored high on the test then became eligible to take algebra in eighth grade, geometry as a freshman and advanced algebra as a sophomore. Trigonometry and analytic geometry will then be taught when the student is a junior. This will allow the student to take a course in calculus and college math as a senior. Senior Bill Sherwood received top honors in the National Math Test. Six- thousand students participated in the test. Out of 132 schools GHS ranked 3feth. Seniors Bill Sherwood and Carson Sparks and junior Cyndy Sparks had the three best scores at GHS. Generally this year in mathematics, students seemed to be able to cope with the tough problems they confronted each day. Next year the math department will try to provide more computers and better equipment to allow more students to become involved in the computer class. TOP— Choir member Mary Gingery sings " Baby Face " to health, physical education and math department head Mr. Richard Capin.

" Many P.E. students hear this every day while doing push-ups, sit-ups and various other exercises. The P.E. department, headed by Mr. Richard Capin accommodates senior and junior high school students. Because junior high students are required to take one semester of gym, approximately 130 students were scheduled for each gym class. The inadequate equipment and the noise factor proved to cause many problems. On the senior high school level students played basketball and volleyball. Bowling, ice skating and judo were taught in some of the classes. Health Department head Mr. Richard Capin feels that there is a new need for a drug program at the seventh grade level. He suggests that by the time a student reaches seventh grade he she has already been exposed to drugs. Therefore, a program would be suitable at this time.

HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION 103 English, social studies departments plan changes The social studies department at GHS, under tlie second-year direction of Mr. Roderick Pressler, consists of seven different classes on the high school level and two classes at the junior high level. In high school, as a junior, everyone is required to take a full year of U.S. history. Then as seniors, students are required to take one semester of U.S. government. The next semester a student must take either sociology, psychology, or economics. As electives, a student may choose from world history or current issues. These electives are offered so that students may obtain a major in social studies. All seventh graders must take world studies and all eighth graders take a year of U.S. history. Mr. Pressler noted that the social studies department is going to institute a testing program which will begin on the junior high level and continue through high school. This testing program would measure the knowledge which students gain by taking various classes. This year teachers in the English department tried new activities to get TOP— Mr. Dan Brinkerhoff, attorney, talks to psychology classes about how the law affects people In their everyday lives. RIGHT-Cliff Teller, Tina Martin, and Leigh Anne Chisholm listen Intently during social studies class. their students more involved in the courses. Mrs. Miles ' eighth grade read essays on kites and kite-flying. Then they spent a few days constructing kites in class. Then they selected an appropriate day to fly them. Mrs. Grogg and Miss Wise were involved in a videotaping project in which students made their own films. These students won an award for their work. Mrs. Bailey and Ms. Eastes gave their students a wider outlook of the world by supervising various field trips for them. Next year the English department plans to revise their classes. At present students are required to take ninth and tenth grade English. These classes teach the basics of English. As juniors and seniors, students must take one reading and one writing course. The basic requirements will remain the same next year but there will be more options for classes available. Survey of Teenage Hassles will be a new reading course which will concern modern novels about teenagers and their hassles and how they deal with them. 104 SOClAL STUDIES MIDDLE— Kris Sickmiller, Mrs. Bonnie IVIiles, Mary Sumner and Brenda McBride try to fly l ites after reading essays on Icite-flying in Englisin class.

ENGLISH 105 Chemical reactions, environmental problems, Paramecium, bacteria and dissecting frogs: what do all these things have in common? These are things that are studied in various science classes at GHS. 1980 was no exception for the science classes. Students continued to study these areas in the midst of all the construction. The science dpeartment got new rooms in the middle of the year and this meant a lot of packing up and moving things. The new science rooms were equipped with new lab tables which have separate gas jets and water faucets. The advanced chemistry classes got new safety equipment to prevent accidents. They are now able to experiment with new chemicals. RIGHT-Rex Kock concentrates on boiling a solution in Chem II, BOTTOM RIGHT-Mike Murley inspects the insides of a frog as he dissects It.

The art classes worked with clay, painting, drawing and metal sculpture during the year. Art Club sponsored a car wash and an art show. Those students interested in drama worked on various productions such as " Harvey " and " Oklahoma " during the year. Many students worked on the play crews behind the scenes. Eric Dircksen was presented the John Philip Sousa Award for his outstanding musical accomplishments during the four years he was in GHS band. Eric won four first place awards in state competition this year. Junior JefF Lyon received the Tri-Kappa junior band member award. In the vocal area, junior Judy Barry was selected for the Indiana All-State Choir. She was one of 200 students selected from the state. Judy performed different chorale selections with guest conductor Mr. Paul Salamunovich. Joselynn Smith, Jennifer Ferry, Chuck LaTurner, Kurt Flesher and Kyle Flesher were selected for the Tri-State choir festival. They performed the " Gloria " by Antonio Vivaldi.

JUNIOR-SENIOR PICNIC 141 PICNIC: A success despite all odds A migratory muscle man, a dysphoric dryad, and a bacchanalian business man: What do these three types of people all have in common? They ' re all part of the William Inge ' s ironically- titled play PICNIC. Although the show takes place in a small Kansas town, celebrating Labor Day with an outing, the resulting action is anything but a picnic. Hal, a very handsome college dropout, who makes his living doing odd jobs for people, appears in town one day. His looks and outgoing personality seem to cause women to become instantly infatuated with him, including four of the local ladies: Mrs. Potts, a lonely woman facing old age with only an invalid mother for company; Rosemary Sydney, an independent but frustrated school teacher trying to recapture her lost youth; Millie, a 15-year-old tomboy experiencing her first case of puppy love, and Madge, her 18-year-old sister, finding true love at last. A string of broken but matured hearts is left in his path after Hal ' s departure. Madge follows, leaving behind Alan, her former boyfriend, and her mother, who had made a mistake by doing the same thing when she was young— and who wanted a better life for Madge. The play was performed on two PICNIC CAST Helen Potts Mary Gingery Hal Carter Brent Ferguson Millie Owens Jennifer Ferry Bomber Tom Ferguson Madge Owens Susan Dudash Flo Owens Jenny Baber Rosemary Sydney Deb Myers Alan Seymour Brad Forker Irma Kronkite Juanita Wagner Christine Schoenwalder Janis Treesh Howard Bevens Ron Wilcoxson Mrs. Potts ' Mother Robin Malcolm Director Mrs. Susan Roberts consecutive days, Saturday, February 23, and Sunday, February 24.

The cast party was at Ron Wilcoxson ' s house after the Saturday night presentation. The play was a great success, especially considering the odds it was up against during rehearsals. Two of the cast members were seriously III for approximately a total of three weeks. It looked as though major roles were going to have to be filled by minor-role characters, and the minor roles taken by completely new people. Luckily, the actors recovered sufficiently to return to practice and were on stage opening night. TOP— Rosemary Sydney (Deb Myers) proudly models her new fall outfit from Kansas City.

" turned out to be as successful as It was for Rogers and Hammerstein when it opened on Broadway almost forty years ago. " Oklahoma! " became the jumping-off point for musical theatre because it was the first production where dance was used as an essential part of the story rather than just decoration. The plot concerns Laurey, a young woman who lives on her Aunt Eller ' s farm, and Curley, a cowboy who loves her. Laurey feels the same way, but doesn ' t want him to know because " He ' s so fresh. " For this reason, she goes out with the hired hand, Jud. Then there ' s Ado Annie, the " girl who cain ' t say no, " and her two suitors, Will Parker, and AN Hakim, a peddler. Annie can ' t decide between the two, but her father has promised her hand to the man who comes up with fifty dollars first. Meanwhile, Jud, who ' s also in love with Laurey, warns Curly to stay away from her. Curley refuses, and later, at a picnic, is attacked by a knife-wielding Jud, who falls on his own weapon and dies. At the same time, it looks like Ali Hakim (who really wants to stay single) will win Annie because Will has spent all his money on useless presents for her. Will has an idea and decides to sell the presents to Ali for fifty dollars. The show ends happily when Curly is acquitted, proposes to Laurey, and Ado Annie says " yes " to Will.

This edition of the AEOLIAN was definitely a learning experience for all those who were involved in any way. Each 16 pages in the yearbook are grouped together in a signature. Each side of a signature Is called a flat. The color pages in this book appear on the back flat of the first signature. The name of the print we used is called executive type. Our body copy is in 10 point type. Our captions are in 8 point type and our headlines in 24 point type. The cover was designed by Todd Piety. He also did the lettering for the division pages and the index. The color scheme was selected by the editor. Page layout and body copy was done by the sixth period journalism class. Our theme was selected because of all the building projects within the school and community. We carried out the theme on the division pages and in the closing. The 1980 AEOLIAN was published by HERF JONES PUBLISHING COMPANY. It is located in Montgomery, Alabama. They printed 525 copies of the yearbook. Subscriptions to the book were sold for $8. Names and plastic covers were made available for $1 each. Many people contributed to making this book a great success. At the beginning of the year the situation looked hoepless. Last years ' yearbook was not even near completion and no one knew what to do. Through the help of many people the 1979 edition was completed and distributed at a dance. The 1980 AEOLIAN was organized and sold nearly $4,000 in advertisements. This helped ease the financial burden of the previous yearbook, while paying for this one. A special thanks must go out to our HERF JONES representative Mr. Mike Howard for all the hours he has spent helping with the book. Mrs. Bonnie Miles has spent uncountable hours helping with this AEOLIAN. She proofread each page and she taught many students the basics of yearbook production. This book could never have been completed without her help. Mr. Mike Sellers, yearbook advisor, spent a lot of his time tracking down pictures for the book. He also dedicated the first two weeks of his summer vacation to the AEOLIAN. Wendy Goldie served as editor for this year. She spent many hours everyday working on this production. With the help of the faculty and administration the yearbook was finished on time. 1980 AEOLIAN STAFF l d COLOPHON THIS WAS THE YEAR TO BUILD m CLOSING 199 OUR TODAYS AND YESTERDAYS ARE THE BUILDING BLOCKS WITH WHICH WE BUILD OUR LIVES " h:!: ' -! ■A ' 200 ' CLOSING
