October 18 was the highlight of the season, when the Gridiron Glads brought a happy Homecoming to their home stadium crowd, who watched Gavit eliminate Noll from the sectional play-offs. Gavit drowned the championship hopes of the BNI Warriors (rated second in the area) in a cold, drizzling rain by defeating them 26-14. Senior end Rich Korem was superlative as he intercepted two passes, had six of- fensive receptions, and scored 14 points. THE TIMES recognized Ga- vit ' s surprisingly good play by nam- ing Korem " Offensive Player of the Week " and John Quinn, " Coach of the Week. " Gavit faced difficulties as an in- experienced team, but leadership from outstanding seniors helped the team develop. Mike Callahan was extremely dedicated to the team, receiving an honorable mention to the all-state team for his fine de- fensive play. Rich Korem earned an honorable mention to the all-state offensive team, and he and Perry Ferrini were named to the first- string all-conference squad. Jack Tatusko, Jeff Ossanna, Kurt Werth, Maurice Klefeker, Chris Zacony, Terry Redlarczyk, Greg Taylor, Bob Russell, Tim Towasnicki, Nick Mc- Daniel, Bob McCarty, Dave Orzech- owicz, and injured Randy Bond were also big assets to the team as senior players. ’’ - • VARSITY, B-TEAM FOOTBALL — (FIRST ROW, FROM LEFT) ).

Sports 19 Reserve team is reservoir for talent Putting varsity strategies into practice, the reserve football team ' s underclassmen earned a respectable season record of seven wins and three losses. The reserve team consisted of two complete units of juniors and sophomores, each contain- ing offensive and defensive squads. Gavit was able to retain more sophomores than any other school because of the high-caliber assis- tance of Mr. Russell Radtke, a graduate P.E. student from Purdue. Mr. Radtke took charge of the tenth-graders, who gained experience and guidance on the field. The reserve offense, patterned after the var- sity ' s plays, ran the triple-option well and pass- ed occasionally to compile 150 points in ten games. Using the 52 Monster defense, Gavit held their opponents to 83 points for the sea- son. Head reserve coach Paul Brush was pleased with the performance of the 29 players who suited up each Saturday to play. Next year ' s ranks of reserve players moving up to varsity promise to make 75-76 an exciting season. John Almada, Tim Kolbert, and Rex Thompson get down on an aggressive Morton Governor. Proving he ' s a tough one to handle, Ralph Canale carries two Morton Gov ' s for a few extra yards. Frustrated by our opponents, Tom Moore loses control, while his offensive teammates move to recover the ball. Stretching for a touchdown, B-Team Quarterback Tim Puchley scores the winning points. Gavit won 8-6. 20 Sports feature flawless first-place football Fearsome freshmen Around right end sprints halfback Tim Cunningham to earn a first down against city rival Morton. The fearsome freshman football team, featuring a flashy offense and a formi- dable defense, finished with a first- place 8-1 record. The success of Cavit ' s frosh was due to their strength at every position, having virtually no weak spots in their squads. The 78 ' ers outscored their oppo- nents 160-18, the result of a potent offensive attack which balanced penetra- tive passing and running. The defense was also superb, shutting out seven of Gavit ' s nine opponents. However, the most outstanding quality exhibited by the freshmen was their hardworking dedication to their team. Willing to do all they could to be the best, Gavit ' s freshmen started double two-hour practices on August 12, nearly three weeks before most other ninth-grade teams met together, and they continued to practice for four hours six days a week during the hot, trying summer. Coaches Bud Ballou and Randy Kuechenberg never had any discipline problems, either, because the players would start practice on their own and would keep the group together by solving problems that arose by themselves. Their two man- agers, Marty Wielgos and Paul Hall, were great assets to the efficiency of the team. FROSH FOOTBALL - (FIRST ROW, FROM LEFT) R. Clark, J. Chenault, D. Danko, D. Baker, P. Gorney, D.

Sports 21 GAA girls ' teams liberate themselves in the air, on the ground Girls Athletic Association added two extra-mural sports (swimming and tennis) and three intramural activities (handball, softball, and tennis) to its roster of sporting opportunities. Girls also participated in field hockey, football, volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, badminton, table tennis, and bowling. Flag football resembled tackle football in an unusually rough Powder Puff football game on October 1. The sophomores beat the freshmen on the gridiron 14-0, and the seniors ground to a 6-6 tie with the juniors. GAA ' s third annual Powder Puff basketball game brought in needed revenue by drawing nearly 150 spectators on January 3. Seniority superiority prevailed as the sophomores outscored the freshmen 14-8, and the seniors outplayed the Gavit 76 ' ers 13-8. Two com- bined — class teams of 17 players each concluded the evening with 16 minutes of exciting, fast-breaking play, as the white shirts edged by the blue shirts 18-16. GAA sponsored a rugby match between two semi- professional teams (Gary and Amoco) at Gavit ' s Witham Stadium on Saturday, November 9. Proceeds were used to help buy new uniforms and equipment. In December and January, about 50 girls competed in the badminton and table tennis tournaments. Doubles and singles winners in each contest received ribbons at the GAA banquet in the spring. 22 Sports K. Solon, L. Frye, M. Mista, E. Stephens, L. Rippe, C. Becker, H. Miller, W. Carle, P.

Teammates Jeri Hoffman and Holly Miller come to assist fullback Pam Dorsey against their opponents. Forward Jeri Hoffman guards the ball from her East Gary opponents. For the second consecutive year, Gavit ' s tre- mendous field hockey team coached by Miss Mar- garet Kelly was undefeated. Practice began late August the 15th, when the girls prepared to take on East Gary on September 7 and Portage and Chesterton in a double-header on September 14th. The lady Glads had won a 2-0-1 record, beating East Gary 3-1, Portage 2-1, and tying Chesterton 2-2. A game scheduled for September 10th was rescheduled for the 17th due to rainy weather and Gavit won their last game with a score of 3-2 against River Forest. Seniors on the team included Jeri Hoffman, Karen Solon, and outstanding offensive player Kim Thomas. Junior Wendy Carle was named outstand- ing defensive player. Field hockey is a-wery rigorous sport which re- quires strength and endurance, to get quick energy during the half-times the team consumed a grand total of over six dozen oranges! !

The Gavit Grapplers had a very successful season while winning 10 out of 12 of their seasonal meets. Coach Ballou is very pleased and satisfied with the outcome. Despite the lack of attendance at the meets, Coach Ballou described the boys as “high spirited and ready to win. " Gavit had five wrestlers that went all the way to regionals. First place sectional winners were Mike Calla- han, and Carlos Tite. Second place winners were Bob Cofer, Evan Tite, and 98 pounder Scott Opasik. In the regional meet three of our five grapplers took standing. The only freshman, Scott Opasik took a second. Mike Callahan took a third and Carlos Tite took a fourth. Coach Ballou attributed the suc- cess of the team to the hard work and improvement of the wrestlers. Varsity grabbler senior Tom Tuskan meets his oncoming Tech opponent head on.

Cavit ' s 11 B-team wrestlers had a good season of six wins and two losses, in spite of their need to forfeit two out of 13 weight classes in each meet. They earned second place in the sectional tournament, as they were coached by Mr. Ben Life. Winning all but one of his 105 pound matches, fresh- man Mike Van Buskirk was an outstanding B-team wres- tler. 26 Sports Exemplifying the spirit of true determination, Chris Wantroba exerts an effort beyond a spectator ' s comprehension. 1974 CC schedule proves to be ' hairy ' for GHS Harriers Cross country ended an exasperating season ranking seventh in the conference with a record of one win and nine losses. Gavit ' s single win came against Whiting, when the Glads underscored the Oilers 15-40. Nine out of fifteen dedicated runners endured the season, as they averaged running about eight miles a day for three months. In one meet three Glads — Chris Wantroba, Steve Bechtel, and Dan Falk — were able to complete the 2 V -mile course under the 14-minute mark, an outstanding accomplishment for Gavit runners. Senior Steve Bechtel ' s first year in cross country was very rewarding, as he was named " most valuable player. " Co-captains Chris Wantroba and Bob Headrick, both three year veterans, gave experienced leadership to the team. nNHHHM Exerting strength, Bob Headrick fudges on.

Sports 27 Spikers net their way to state. Miss Margaret Kelly coached the 1974 varsity volley- ball team to a 24-2 overall record and their second regionals championship in two years to give them a chance for the state championship. During the regular season, Gavit lost only to Concord. The Lady Glads were undefeated in the Hammond sectional and Valparaiso regional tourna- ments to advance them to the third State Girls Volleyball Tournament at Indianapolis Ben Davis on November 23. Nearly repeating the performance of their 1972 volleyball team, Gavit ' s only other team to compete down state, the Glads lost to a South Bend team (Riley) in the first round of play. Gavit ' s B-team, who earned a 13-7 record, will supply many valuable players for n ext year ' s varsity. VARSITY V.B. — TOP ROW: K. Solon. 2nd ROW: W. Carle, P. Dorsey, S. Pomplin. 3rd ROW: P.

Making plenty of racket while netting an even record of 5 wins and 5 losses, Gavit ' s 1974 tennis team then bounced up to take third place in the Lake Shore Conference Tournament. The team won victories over Whit- ing and Tech with a score of 5-0 for both matches. Hammond High and East Chicago Washington gave the Glads hard competition to beat the Glads 3-2 in both matches. Craig Lucht, John Bachmann, Mark Bearby and Susan Pomplin were im- portant seniors on the team. For his undefeated play during the sea- son, Craig Lucht received individual honors. Sports 29 The battle of the back boards Starting off the year with three straight wins, Gavit ' s 74-75 varsity basketball team ended their season with a score of eight wins and 12 losses. After beginning the year ranked third in the area (behind Hammond High and Morton), the nine talented players high hopes were let down when they lost several close games to put them out of contention for the Lake Shore Conference title. There were some bright spots for the team, however. Steller center Tim Bajusz was considered one of the three top players in the Calumet Region as he led the team in rebounds and scoring, averaging over 20 points per game. Forwards Jim Michels and Mark Cooley contri- buted needed points for many victories. Guards Rich Korem and Ron Bonnell were known for their quickness and penetrating passes. Other leading players were Mike Geary, who had improved greatly over last year, and Randy Rapchak, an important forward this year. Trying not to over extend themselves, Jim Michels and Tim Bajusz struggle for the ball.

Cagemen compete courageously Winning its first reserve city tournament championship in Gavit ' s history, the 1974-75 basketball B-team displayed outstanding teamwork. Gavit brought excitement to the Hammond Holiday Tournament by taking both their games into overtime. On December 27 Gavit defeated Hammond High School 29-27, and on the following night they came back to win the championship game against Hammond Tech 33-31. Gavit ' s B-team season ended with a record of 10 wins and 10 losses — six of which were within four points.

Returning for his second year, Coach Fred Vukas guided his players to victory as they won the Holiday Tournament for the second year in a row. The rookie Glads displayed their talent at the tournament by beating Clark 40-34 and Hammond High 54-31. The ferocious freshmen put up a tough fight against all their opponents, even in their six losses. They came within two points of victory on two occasions and they were within six points of winning in three other games.

Senior Ed Schoenfelt con- tributed to the team points with his well-thrown discuses. The talented but small freshman track team showed great promise as developing for future boys reserve and varsity track teams at Gavit.

The Super Glads finished third in the Lake Shore Conference meet and fifth in the Sectionals. All school records set in 1973-74 were broken this year. Fantastic junior, John Esgate, set individual records in three events: the 200-yard free style, 200 individual med- ley, and the 100 backstroke, in which he made the finals for the Sectional Meet. He was also a member of the record-setting 400 free relay, containing John Kapec, Alex Klefeker, and Jim Pawlus. Jim Pawlus, also a junior, set two new individual records in the 50 free and 100 free. Greg Lewis and Alex Klefeker each set individual records, Lewis in the 100 butterfly and Klefeker in the 500 free. Co-captain Bob Russell set a new record in the 100 breast-stroke, and junior John Janiga easily com- piled the most points for a Gavit diver. Coach Ed Troy was proud of the tankmen, who im- proved greatly this year.

Gavit ' s 1974 soccer team had an average season with three wins, five losses, and one tie; but they usually gave their opponents a tough match. Purple and gold bootman dog- gedly practiced in rain, sleet, and mud from early April until June, playing two matches per week. Kick- ing off the season with a 5-1 victory over Munster, the Glads looked less impressive the rest of the seas n. However, three of their five losses were by only one point, with first- place Morton being responsible for Gavit ' s other two losses, 0-2 and 4- 7. A young team with mostly juniors and a sole senior, Steve Smoot, Gavit ' s soccer squad featured some outstanding players. Center forward Bob Russell, who scored eight goals, and fullback Mike Callahan, who was relentless on defense, were named to the city ' s All-Star team by Hammond ' s six soccer coaches.

Chris was named most valuable player on the team with the lowest ninehole season average of 40.1. Tim followed closely behind with a 40.3. Bill Mangerson helped the Glads qualify for regionals, in which Gavit placed 12th, with his exceptional back nine score of 39. Gary Amick was also an asset to the team, always retaining an average of under 45. Tracy Cooley won the scholastic average award and he usually averaged about a 41.5 on the course. With an overall record of 18-3, the five Gavit golfers had another fine sea- son, coached by Mr. Russell. Bill Mangerson checks the line up for the IHSAA golf sectional.

Words of wisdom flow freely from the mouth of Coach Paul Brush to his players. Improving their play as the spring season progressed, Gavit ' s 1974 baseball squad gained experience and skill while winning 12 games, losing 18, and tying one. With only four experienced up- perclassmen returning from the 1974 ' s conference championship team, several of Gavit ' s 20 young rookies came through with excellent baseball. For example, surehanded second-baseman Rich Korem field- ed 97% of the balls that whizzed his way, and also he pitched three vic- torious games. Right off the bat Dan Pease smacked the ball well, main- taining the team ' s highest average of 400. Kevin Knutson gave up the few- est earned runs of Gavit ' s four pitchers (averaging 2.86 per game), Terry Homcho hurled three winning games, and Mark Cooley was valu- able on the mound as well as at bat. The Glad ' s most improved under- classman was Ron Bonnell, who hit a solid .363 average. For their outstanding contribu- tions, seniors Bob Graczyk and John Rozgony were selected for the Lake Shore All-Conference team. As the only returning starter from Gavit ' s 1973 champs, catcher Graczyk bat- ted .369 and drove in 21 runs. Roz- gony was the Glads ' leading RBI man with 27, and had a .324 batting aver- age.

Completing their third undefeat- ed season in four years, the Lady Glads varsity basketball team breezed to a district championship on February 22. All season they aver- aged 65 points per game, more than any other team in the Northwest section, while they held their oppo- nents to an average 26 points in their 15 contests. Gavit ' s closest (58-57) and most cherished victory came against Mor- ton, who had beaten the Glads the year previous 46-45 to give Gavit it ' s only loss in 51 games since 1971. WMAQ-TV (NBC) news covered the well played game, and coach Mar- garet Kelly was named " coach of the Week " by the TIMES. Jeri Hoffman, leading rebounder and scorer on the team, was ex- tremely valuable, as was agile guard Kim Thomas. Susan Pomplin added needed points as a forward, and Sharron Fullgraf and Cindy Graczk performed well on the court. VARSITY B-BALL — FIRST ROW FROM LEFT: H. Miller, S. Pomplin, W. Carle.

They beat their toughest com- petitor, formerly undefeated Portage, in their final game of the year by the score of 21-14. The B-team had little trouble with most of their oppo- nents. While averaging over 30 points per game, they held the other team to less than 20 points in all but three contests. They used their good shooting and tight defense to their advantage, so that nearly all members of the team were able to play in each game. However, there were several tense moments in their game with Morton, especially when the two teams were tied at 19 with two minutes remaining; but Gavit came through with some quick layups to win 26-19. Portage was no cinch either, but Gavit ' s underclasswomen played like cool-headed veterans, finally breaking the game open in the third quarter after two quarters of tied-up scoring (4-4 after the first quarter and 10-10 after the second). Coach Margaret Kelly was very pleased with the per- formance of her J-V players. Several talented sopho- mores will be moving up to fill the places of five grad- uating varsity players, in time to vie for Indiana ' s first state girls basketball championship in 1976. jm.

But as the week progressed, enthusiasm was built up with " Tag Day " , " Trai- tor Day " , and " School Color Day " was dubbed " Greaser Day " , and was by far the most outstanding show of spirit participation as seniors went all out to re-capture the look of the " 50 ' s " . Many of our teachers were reminded of their own school days as students displayed ducktails, bob- bie socks, leather jackets, pony-tails, saddle shoes, and long skirts. The annual pep rally on Thursday brought anxiously waiting spectators for the announcement of the 1974 Homecoming Queen, Judy Latham, escorted by Terry Beck. Entertain- ment was furnished by the Gavit Pep Band and Drill Team, while mem- bers of the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior classes performed skits. The Class of 1978 was an- nounced the most spirited class of the week at the Homecoming game on Friday. This year Gavit had one of the largest Homecoming parades ever. Participant ' s in the parade were divided into two categories: class and organizations. Winning in class float competition was the Class of 1975 with their theme " Seniors take the sting out of the Warriors, " while the club competition was won by the Pep Club. As the spirited week rolled on so did our football team. Coming out on top, the mighty Glads defeated the Noll Warriors with a 26-14 Homecoming victory. The weather did not stop the crowd as the people poured in the gates of Gavit ' s stadium. Rich Korem ' s fantastic interceptions, touchdowns, end pass receptions helped him in being named Mr. Football. Adding to the excitement, the Hammond Times named John Quinn " Coach of the Week " and Rich Korem " Back of the Week. " After the game a dance sponsored by Student Council added to the Homecoming celebrations. Students sat around and talked, while others danced to the great music of Stone- wood Fox. School Life 49 Court, Mr. Basketball honored at Homecoming Despite a disheartening loss to E.C.

During half-time Gavit ' s leading scorer for the season, Tim Bajusz, was awarded the title of Mr. Basket- ball, while Kim Thomas (accom- panied by Mike Callahan) was crowned Homecoming Queen. Her royal court consisted of Sharron Fullgraf (escorted by John Breiden- baugh), Cindy Graczyk (escorted by Mark Peters), Sue Papesh (accom- panied by Bob Cofer), and Pam Stephens (escorted by Jack Tatusko).

" It was enthusiasti- cally handled by a cast of six major characters, four understudies, stu- dent director Becky Medwetz, countless, cooperative crew mem- bers, and Mrs. Marge Macey, Gavit ' s new drama coach. On Friday, November 22, the cur- tain went up at 8:00 p.m., and the large crowd of people was well en- tertained for ninety minutes thereafter. In the beginning, the play focused upon Charlie Brown and the Peanut gang ' s criticism of his wishy-washiness and blockhead- edness. Throughout the play, how- ever, the other characters accept Charlie Brown for what he is. Kevin Augustyn, who played Charlie Brown, did a great job of acting the part. He was especially terrific in his hilarious lunch scene. He longed very much to attract the attention of " that cute little red- headed girl " he had admired from afar. Yet when she finally noticed him, he thrust his lunch bag over his head in embarrassment, adding humiliation to his troubles. Anita Charnekar did a remarkable job of portraying Lucy ' s outspoken, strong-willed, obnoxious nature. When she announced that she was going to become " head queen, " the audience roared as she displayed her lust for power. Anita was excel- lent when she tried to charm piano- minded Schroeder, into falling in love with her. Linus, played by Greg Rucinski, was as warm and lovable as ever in all his actions. In one scene, he tried to demonstrate his independence by abandoning his blanket, but in a matter of seconds, he came run- ning back for it, terrified. Ladena Felling put alot of spirit into the part of Patti, who was the silly, dumb blonde stereotype. She said the pledge of allegiance in her own reverent fashion, closing in loy- alty with the word " Amen " . Charles Phillips who was Schroe- der in the show, did a very nice job in acting the part of a serious, dedi- cated, quiet boy with much dignity. His devotion to music and worship of Beethoven were his main con- cerns. Snoopy kept everybody laughing with his crazy antics. He expressed his feelings about his favorite time of the day ... SUPPERTIME! by dancing and singing to his hearts ' delight. Snoopy was played by Tom Wilson, and another one of his bet- ter moments was when he was flying high in his Sopwith Camel and curs- ing the Red Baron for shooting at him. All of the colorful characters helped make this fall comedy an en- joyable success. 1. Axel Magee (Randy Van Vynckt) cowers as Kil- roy (Donna Stepanovich) rebukes him for his many mistakes. 2. The chef (Dave Mysliwiec) hysterically tells Magee that he cannot cook with Communist soldiers star- ing at him. 3. Walter (Norman Headr ick) sneaks a drink from the unsuspecting Count Kasner (Ron Henry) who is talking to the Countess (Laurie Sefton). 4. The ambassador (Ron Brooks) threatens his son, Axel, who formulated a ridiculous escape plan for the tourists, while Kilroy deals with a telephone call from the Communist police. 54 School Life Woody Allen comedy presented as spring play “Don ' t Drink the Water, " a farce by Woody Allen, was performed as the annual spring play by the Gavit drama department, Friday, March 7. The play dealt with an American caterer on vacation with his wife and daughter in a Communist coun- try behind the Iron Curtain. Walter, the caterer, was suspected of spying when he inadvertently took some pictures near a secret missile base. They were chased into the American embassy where the ambassador was absent, leaving his son, Axel, who had been kicked out of the entire continent of Af rica for his mishaps, in charge. A hilarious comedy, including much slapstick, followed as Axel attempted to secure freedom for the tourists, and finally devised an intri- cate plan of escape which even he didn ' t understand. However, throughout all the hilarity, the am- bassador ' s son and caterer ' s daugh- ter found time to fall in love. The cast included six major roles and many other minor roles. The clumsy, ambassador ' s son, Axel Ma- gee (Randy Van Vynckt); Walter Hollander, the obnoxious, over- bearing New Jersey caterer (Norman Headrick); Walter ' s spacy-wife Marion (Marie Scepkowski); Susan Hollander (Diane Kovach) the ste- reotyped hippie daughter; Father Drobney (Tom Wilson) a priest who had been hiding in the embassy for six years and also practiced magic; and Krojack (Gary Thorsky), head of the secret police were the major characters. Minor parts included the chef (David Mysliwiec), ambassador sul- tan (Ron Brooks), Kasner (Ron Hen- ry), Countess (Laurie Sefton), and embassy guests. (Ruth Lackey, Kari Beldsoe, Lori Hufnagel, Pam Smaron, Kathy Karnafel, and Janet Callahan). 3 one-acts provide for varied theatrical talents The three one-act plays were per- formed May 16. " A Women ' s Privi- lege " by Marijane and Joseph Hayes was a comedy which dealt with a married couple and their marital problems. Stars were Marie Scep- kowski, Philip Tidwell, Charles Phil- lips and Lori Hufnagel. The student director was Sue Welsh. " The Tell-Tale Heart " , adapted by Luella McMahon, was a horrifying Edgar Allen Poe short story of a young man ' s insanity that drives him to murder. Starring in that pro- duction were Daniel Lackey, Debbie Ashlock, Claudia Lee, Kari Bledsoe, Tim Puchley and Dave Mysliwiec. This play was directed by Linda Lee Foster. " Ledge, Ledger, and Legend " by Paul Elliot was a hilarious comedy about a man who attempted suicide by jumping off a ledge but was con- tinually interrupted. Stars were Randy Van Vynckt, Ruth Lackey and Tom Wilson. The student director was Laurie Sefton. 1. Isabelle (Marie Scepkowski) expresses disgust at her husband (Phil Tidwell) during a scene of " A Woman ' s Privilege. ' ' 2. Pete (Randy Van Vynckt) contemplates self-destruction before approached by a professional suicide counselor in the " Ledge, Ledger, and Legend. " 3. Junior Charles Phillips portrayed Dr. Shaw in the drama department ' s presentation of " A Woman ' s Privilege. " 4. The maid, Anna, (Lori Hufnagel) pays close attention to her employer ' s instructions. School Life 55 1 An exasperated father (Kevin Augustyn) finally prepares for his daughter ' s (Linda Lee Foster) wedding as her mother (Becky Medwetz) puts final touches on her dress. 2 Borden stuns the parents when he convinces Mimsey to continue the wedding with the mere words " cool it. " 3 The bathroom door provides a sturdy barrier between Roy and his daughter Mimsey. 4 Anita Charnekar, Joanne Schevchenko, and Beth McCoy trans- form Becky Medwetz and Jack Spoerner into dramatic actors with makeup and their skillful hands. 5 Preparing to extricate his doubtful bride-to-be, Borden (Jack Spoerner) knocks firmly on the locked bathroom door. 6 Coming apart at the seams, Roy is detained, by Norma, from climbing across the ledge to free his daughter. 7 Joanne Schevchenko offers a helping hand as Becky Med- wetz removed her makeup after an exhilarating performance. 56 School Life Students receive glimpse of Neil Simon comedy Performed on January 16, the Thespians ' annual assembly pro- duction was “Visitor from Forest Hill, " adapted from the third act of Neil Simon ' s comedy " Plaza Suite. " A girl names Mimsey (Linda Lee Foster) locked herself in the bath- room and refused to leave in time for her wedding. Having second thoughts about taking the final step in marriage, the comedy centered around the frantic antics of two parents (Becky Medwetz as Norma and Kevin Augustyn as Roy) who ranted and raved in an effort to extricate their daughter from tne bathroom. Her parents ' rash be- havior makes her even more re- luctant to enter into a marriage that could make her as unhappy as they. Finally, after all the confusion, Borden (Jack Spoerner), the future husband, was able to persuade her to come out. " Everything ' s alright now, " exclaimed the happy bride- to-be as she was assured that her marriage could hold a bright future. School Life 57 Bus benefits students, students assist needy November of 1974 brought a new addition to Gavit High — a per- sonalized school bus. The bus was purchased with Gavit funds for use by Gavit students, and it solved a financial and transportation prob- lem shared by many clubs and or- ganizations. The two men who alter- nated the driving were Jim Soraparu and Jack Roberts. The bus was used mostly by the athletic department, but it was also employed by the Spanish Club, Mr. Clausen ' s graphic arts students, and Mr. Clark ' s choir, just to name a few. Student Council, National Honor Society, and the CUC club spon- sored the annual canned food drive, which took place November 11 to 27. The drive yielded approximately 1,000 cans, which helped to make a happy Thanksgiving for six fami- lies. 1. Gavit ' s new bus " No. 1 " solved the many financial and transportation problems of clubs, organizations, and athletic teams. 2. Honor Society members Tina Mazany and Laurie Sefton, along with Student Council mem- ber Barb Lloyd, prepare canned goods for de- livery to needy families at Thanksgiving. 3.

School Life 59 1974 Prom, " Stairway to Heaven, " uplif ts spirits Dancing and romancing on the spirited night, over 200 couples who attended Gavit ' s 1974 Jr.-Sr. Prom thought May 18 was a " Stairway to Heaven. " Appropriately set in the tiered, elegant ballroom of the Ramada Inn of Dolton, " Stairway to Heaven " featured a three-course dinner and entertainment throughout the even- ing. " Bittersweet " , a moderately tempoed three-man group, played enjoyable old-time favorites includ- ing the " Bunny Hop " and " Beer Barrel Polka. " Between bands a humorous ma- gician, Mr. John Streeter, intrigued his audience by pulling a boy ' s shirt off from underneath his buttoned jacket, embarrassed a girl with a trick pretending to remove part of her attire, and played off the jests from impatient music lovers quite well throughout his performance. After midnight the celebrated New Colony Six appeared, and their ori- ginal and popular rock music lived up to the great expectations of the dance-happy Prom-goers. Earlier in the evening, Heidi Reiter was announced the 1974 Prom Queen, escorted by Kent Hill. Her court consisted of four other senior girls: Debbie Hines, escorted by Guy Kikalos; Gail Johnson, accompanied by Jeff Bond; Robin Haack, escort- ed by Kevin Blaemire; and Robin Mitchell, accompanied by Ed Schoenfelt. " Stairway to Heaven " was a great success, a well planned evening that even general Prom chairmen Eydie Parsley and Anita Charnekar could relax and enjoy with their dates. To remind them of this enjoyable night, all who attended received an attractive crystal glass with the Prom theme and date printed on it, and natural color pictures were taken by Ted Wahlberg of Cedar Lake, Indiana. At 3 a.m. Prom-goers de- scended the " Stairway to Heaven " . 1 Camera attracts attention of guest teachers, Mr. Robert Spry, Mr. Douglas Pearson, Mr. Richard Clausen and their compan- ions. 2 Drinks refresh thirsty dancers, Tim Degnan and Kim Sweeney, between songs. 3 Prom-goers Rich Korem, Mary Gray, and Steve Ashby relax after the exhausting festivities. 4 The 1974 Prom court, including Gail Johnson escorted by Jeff Bond, Debbie Hines and Guy Kikalos, Prom Queen Heidi Reiter and Kent Hill, Robin Mitchell and Ed Schoenfelt, and Robin Haack and Kevin Blaemire, was announced during the evening ' s activities. 5 Members of " New Colony Six " entertain listeners at the 1974 Jr.-Sr. Prom 6 Cindy Buksar ' s escort Tim Trissler poses for camera as he takes a much needed break. 7 Dancing to the lively music of " New Colony Six, " Prom participants pound the floor.

The theme, “Starlight on the Snow, " was demonstrated with snowflakes, prisms, and mistletoe hung from silver mobiles and gar- land. Bittersweet played soft rock music with a medley of the " Fabulous Fifties. " Couples relaxed and were served refreshments in the lounge, while Santa visited with them. At the same time, others were having pictures taken by Wahlberg ' s of Cedar Lake. A special feature was the first Inaugural court. King and queen were Mark Bearby and Susan Pomp- lin from the senior class, and there were also princes and princesses from each of the other classes. Nick Pappas and Laura Geary represented the juniors, Greg DeBruler and Cyn- thia O ' Dennell the sophomores, and Dave Mysliwiec and Debbie Hor- vath the freshmen. The dance was sponsored by Stu- dent Council. It was successfully planned by Anita Charnekar, the dance chairman and her four com- mittees: publicity, entertainment, refreshments, and decorations. School Life 63 Assemblies add variety, interest student body Making good use of their out- of-class time, students enjoyed four outstanding assemblies this year. Student Council leaders pledged a year of innovation and unity on October 1, when president Randy Van Vynckt, vice president Kevin Augustyn, secretary Joyce Yoways, and treasurer Sue Papesh recited their inaugural oaths of office in unison. Four weeks later, the SCROLL and FUTURA staffs put on two enjoyable skits to encourage support of the publications depart- ment. Making students aware of the difficulties that handicapped people must face, Mrs. Sharon Gardner (a paraplegic who is music director for WJOB radio) amd Mr. Gene Rieck (a blind vocational rehabilitation counselor for the Agency for the Blind) encouraged students to assist and befriend the handicapped, when the two visited Gavit on No- vember 12. On February 13, WGN- TV (channel 9) weatherman Harry Volkman encouraged students to embark upon an exciting career in meteorology. 1. Newly sworn-in Student Council president, Randy Van Vynckt, outlines future plans in the annual Inaugural Assembly. 2.

Both band and vocal students devoted much time to developing their skills as talented musical performers. Besides working on the Fall Con- cert on October 16, the Christmas concert entitled " Holiday Ports of Call " on December 15, the inter- school spring band concert on March 14, the spring vocal concert on April 11, and the Pop Concert on May 9, the students spent time individually to perfect their instru- mental and vocal solos and en- sembles for the N.I.S.B.O.V.A. con- tests. Gavit hosted the N.I.S.B.O.V.A. Stage Band and Swing Choir Con- test on January 18, and students from 22 bands and 18 choirs partici- pated. Gavit ' s own Stage Band re- ceived a second in Group III, miss- ing a first by one point. The Gavit Band Boosters and choir members helped make the contest possible by taking admission, serving lunch, and coordinating the entire event. On January 25, the N.I.S.B.O.V.A. Band and Orchestra District Contest was held at Highland Jr. High School. Four students from Gavit qualified for State. Playing Group I solos, Steve Bechtel (trumpet), and Elaine Stephens and Joyce Voways (clarinet) received first place ratings, and Sue Papesh, Stephens, and Yoways placed first in their Group I clarinet trio. The following Saturday on Febru- ary 1, the N.I.S.B.O.V.A. Vocal and Piano District Contest took place at Gary Lew Wallace High School. Vo- cal soloists Melanie Mayfield, Becky Medwetz, Joe Chudy, and Donna Stepanovich received firsts in Group I competition. A trio sung by Wendy Carle, Patti G r i I lion, and Claudia Lee, a barbershop quartet sung by Sandy Gri I lion, Medwetz, Mayfield, and Bethann McCoy, and an ensemble which consisted of the Boy ' s Glee Club each received firsts in Group I. Stephens placed first on a Group I piano solo. N.I.S.B.O.V.A. State Auditions on February 15 were in Indianapolis at Butler University. Yoways got a first on her clarinet solo, as did Stephens on her piano solo. Firsts on vocal solos went to Stepanovich, Med- wetz, and Mayfield, and the vocal trio also got a first. Seconds went to Bechtel and Stephens for their instrumental solos, and the quartet and Boy ' s Glee Club also received seconds. Gavit ' s Concert Choir sang live for WJOB audiences on December 17. They also taped a program for channel 50 on February 25. 1. Marty Jacobson relates the story of Hanukkah along with vocal accompaniment supplied by Concert Choir. 2.

This was just the beginning of the exciting, enchanting, and un- forgettable 1974 four-day senior trip to the nation ' s capital. The Capitol Building, Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, and Lincoln Memorial were among the outstanding educational sights that they viewed. One of the more interesting sights to everyone was the Smithsonian Institute, which dis- played some of the world ' s most outstanding historic and scientific treasures. The highlight of their visit was a side trip to Annapolis, Mary- land, where they were fortunate enough to view the Naval Acad- emy ' s annual Homecoming formali- ties, which included a twenty-one gun salute and a full dress parade. Melanie Kujawa commented, " It was great, and it was a good experi- ence " while Judy Thomas added, " It was a lot of fun. " Pam Harreld, Bob Matter, Tom Tuskan, Barb Smith, Brenda Jurich, Becky Lax and Terry Wszolek agreed that the sen- ior trip was not only fun, but educa- tional. On October 27, a tired but happy group of seniors, along with their energy-depleted sponsors Miss Laurel Vicari and Mr. Richard Willis, returned home with fond memories. 66 School Life 3 1.

School Life 67 I Gavit transforms from pasture to modern school In the beginning, Gavit was a green pasture full of flowers, rab- bits, birds, and frogs. A Mr. Gas- perovich owned the property, as well as a large amount of the sur- rounding area. It was mostly pas- ture and swampland, which was used mainly for hunting and fish- ing. Ducks, quail, pheasant, and rabbits were very plentiful. The neighbors of the Gaspero- viches were Mr. and Mrs. Walter Narantic, whose property boundary was what is now the school alley. They grazed their livestock there, and their children would ride horses on the property. The roads sur- rounding their property, where 175th Street runs now, were all gravel with ditches on all sides. Soil was broken on the site for Gavit on March 30, 1961, and con- struction was started soon after. At first, Gavit has only seventh, eighth, and ninth grades, but higher grades were provided for the stu- dents as they completed each grade level. The tenth grade was added in 1961, the eleventh in 1962, the twelfth in 1963, and the first gradu- ating class emerged in June of 1964. Since that time Gavit has gone through a few changes. A new pool and weight-room complex was added in 1972, and the front of the building was reconstructed in 1973. 1 Long before there was any thought or planning of Gavit, the Gasperovich family farmed its present property. 2 White panels, added in 1973, were used to reconstruct the front of the building. 3 Gavit appears here as it did to many students during their brief attendance. 4 The pool complex opened when construction was com- pleted in 1972. 68 School Life Gavit seniors welcome challenges of the future On May 28, 1974, the Honors Day Assembly was held for the grad- uating class of 1974. Mistress of ceremonies was Marian Lucas, and the invocation was delivered by Chris Stewart. A variety of awards were presented to the outstanding students of the class. Awards in- cluded in the assembly were foreign language awards, the D.A.R. award, home economics awards, and G.A.A. awards. Scholarships and the senior class gift were also presented during the assembly, as well as the announcement of the outstanding senior boy and girl, Todd Clark and Chris Stewart. On Wednesday, June 5, 1974 commencement took place in the Gavit gymnasium. After Linda Bib- zak ' s valedictory address and Todd Clark ' s salutatory address, a message to the graduates was delivered by Dr. Wayne Carle, superintendent of schools. The 289 students were then pre- sented their diplomas by Mr. Donald Moretton, principal of Ga- vit. Fifty-two seniors were distin- guished as being a member of the National Honor Society by their gold tassels. Members of the Gavit Honor Society were distinguished by gold cords. Jody Rausch offered the ben- ediction at the end of the ceremony. Officers of the graduating class were William Cosgrove, president; Thomas Eder, vice-president; Den- ise Linsemann, secretary; and Mar- ilyn Drudge, treasurer. Class spon- sors were Mrs. Karen Kroczek and Mr. Richard Clausen. 1 One senior finds a moment of solitude to contemplate her future plans. 2 New alumni leave Gavit with their diplomas and many memories. 3 Graduates race out into the world welcoming the many challenges of the future.

The Council sought to eliminate student apathy by involving students in worthwhile activities. They sponsored the football Homecoming dance on October 18, the Inaugural Ball (“Starlight on the Snow " ) on December 20, and Gavit ' s Fifties Dance in April to get things moving. In an effort to beautify the Student lounge, Student Council chose a design by mural contest winner Kathy Rucinski. Student Council was responsible for Gavit ' s first spring carnival ever, as they provided rides and organized school clubs who set up booths. Student Council planned many new activities including a student exchange program with area schools, a student-faculty Switch-off Day, Dress-up Week, and a Sixties Dance featuring Beatles music. Leadership, character, scholarship and service are the basis of selection to qualify for the National Honor Society. All who do qualify are supreme in many ways not only in scholastic entities.

Students with skilled experience in public- ations were named to the honorary journalistic club, Quill and Scroll. Cinema Club ' s 88 film buffs viewed and discussed classic movies during club periods to appreciate filmmaking and better understand themes. Members borrowed club cameras to create their own film masterpieces, and they reviewed each one to benefit from their mis- takes. The best of these creative en- deavors were to be entered in Kodak ' s annual Teen-age Movie- making Contest in the spring. In its fourteenth year of publi- cation, the Scroll continued to pro- vide Gavit with newsworthy stories pertaining to the student body. The 14 staff members collaborated to produce 10 monthly issues loaded with Gladiator sports, school happenings, and special features. They met as a class every day during sixth period to learn good journal- istic techniques, and they worked individually to complete writing, photography, and artwork assign- ments. Scroll editor Ron Henry attended a five-week journalism seminar in July at prestigious Northwestern University, where he improved many of his skills. He put his graphic arts knowhow to use by creating new layout designs that gave the Scroll a new look, and he gave knowledgeable guidance to fellow staffers. 5. QUILL SCROLL — BACK ROW: D.

Gavit ' s eighth science fair, which displayed about 70 in- dividual exhibits and six advanced research projects, was held on March 19. Field trips, such as a Novem- ber excursion to Brookfield Zoo, enabled members to study living organisms in controlled and natural habitats. Lab assistants performed tasks for teachers and helped students in the science rooms. Invading Gavit with lizards, snakes, and frogs, Herpetology Club studied amphibians and reptiles.

Creating an effec- tive stage production takes time and great effort. Without a crew working together with the actors and actress- es, the show could not go on. Thespians are a group of high school actors and actresses designed to meet the qualifications of the In- ternational Thespian Society by ex- celling in their efforts towards stage work and acting abilities. The Thes- pains work on crews and act to en- title them to attain points which they need before becoming a Thespian. After acquiring points, at the end of each year is an annual banquet where newcomers are initiated. A touch of professionalism is add- ed to every production with the as- sistance of the Usherettes. The new uniforms issued this year, added a stunning new look of which they are all proud of. The Usherettes, Stage Crew, Mime and Thespians are all directed by Mrs. Macey, a new member of the faculty. 1. STAGE CREW — TOP ROW: L. Fatheree. 2nd ROW: J. Shevchenko, S. Welch, C.

The students in Typing Club had the opportunity to hear speakers from businesses and industries, who informed them of possible job em- ployment. The Office Education Association gave C.O.E. students a further op- portunity to become acquainted with office occupations. The Human Relations Club was created this year by Ms. Koscielniak to help people appreciate others. Members visited the Field Museum in Chicago on November 9. No offi- cers were elected, in order to achieve full participation and equal- ity among members. All clubs at Gavit wished to achieve an interest in many, dif- ferent and practical fields. Students follow the beat of their own drum, doing, what, to them, seems good. " For I could never make you see That no one knows what is good. " E. L. Masters upational Education ■ f f 4 5.

Your grief and mine Must intertwine Like sea and river be fused and mingle Diverse yet single Forever and forever Let no man be so proud and confident. To think he is allowed a little tent Pitched in a meadow of sun and shadow all his little own. By C. Cullen No man can seclude himself from someone who cries help. At Gavit it is evident that people who reach out for help receive it. 1. LIBRARY AIDS — LEFT SIDE FROM TOP: j. Blumenhagen, C. Chivington, D. Ekdahl, K. Bledsoe. RIGHT SIDE FROM TOP: M. Qualls, K.

Their sponsor Mrs. Hayes worked along with the captains, Debra Bart- nik, and Pam Stephens to give the Drill Team a whole new look. Drill team has been at Gavit 10 years and still going strong. The sparkling twirlers always add a touch of beauty to any athletic function. Lead by captains Melaine Lock and Diane McMahon the twirlers display many astounding fire and twirling routines. Cheers . . . Gavit ' s nine cheerleaders were a talented group with lots of gymnastic ability to do back- flips and pyramids. Due to their outstanding enthusiasm, the group received the coveted Spirit Stick Award at an NCA clinic at Vincennes on July 15- 16. The varsity cheerleading squad consisted of four, two- year veterans and one new- comer, sophomore Mary John- son. As varsity captain senior Cindy Graczyk was responsible for calling practices and ar- ranging details; she enjoyed contributing to the boy ' s vic- tories by rousing students to support the football and bas- ketball teams. Having gained confidence and become more outgoing by being a cheerlead- er, senior Debbie Dittrich plan- ned to use her experience to someday become a social worker. One of the two and a half sets of twins on the cheerleading teams, juniors Dori and Lori Frye thought hard but fun practicing was the key to good cheerleading: Dori worked on mastering a round-off backflip, and Lori worked to get a round-off back aerial. Mary Johnson liked to ' get the crowd going ' with spirited cheers and aerial stunts. All the reserve team were first-year cheerleaders at Gavit, as junior Linda Rippe captain- ed the four novices. Another dose of " double trouble, " Su- san and Sharon Geurts felt honored to cheer on the Glads, and they pleased the crowd with their unusual double cart- wheel. Sophomore Pat Pag- uette joined the team later in the year in place of Laura De- laney. Organizations 91 Actions speak louder than words The Pep Club created spirit and enthusiasm at Gavit ' s football and basketball games. The 70 members raised money with bake sales to enable them to attend away games. Their new purple outfits and pom pons showed a greater unity than the group had in the past. Pep Club ' s 1974-75 officers were Lu Ann Fatheree, president; Debbie Davis, vice president; Sue Peruts, secretary; and Joanne Schevchenko, treasurer. Rotarians is an international organization of business and civic leaders. Each month the Hammond chapter of Rotarians invited representatives from area high schools to a luncheon meeting. Here each student could discuss different areas of business with various profes- sionals. Gavit student representatives are chosen yearly by the guidance staff according to academic, scholastic, and extramural activities. Mike Callahan, Jim Saltanovitz, Perry Ferrini, Kurt Werth, Roger Montano, Randy Van- Vynckt, Steve Bechtel, and Dave Orzechowicz were Gavit Rotarians for 1974-75. 92 Organizations 1. PEP CLUB 2.

A concise history of the class of 1975 Entering the first eighth-grade float in a Gavit Homecoming parade, the Class of 1975 received their first notoriety in 1970 with " Snoopy Says, Put the Senators in the Dog House! " As experienced freshmen they won the Homecoming float compe- tition with " Glad — Wrap the Pioneer Leftovers " , and they sold the most freshman candy of any Gladiator group, raising about $4,800 for their trea- sury. Their money was put to good use in their junior year when they created a " Stairway to Heav- en " , Gavit ' s glamorous 1974 Jr. -Sr. Prom. Homecom- ing again was a highlight for the Class of 1975 in their senior year, when they took first place in the float competition with a hand-manipulated, moving bee that was built to " Take the Sting out of the Warriors. " Individuals of the Class of 1975 excelled in nearly all areas of scholastics. Randy Van Vynckt, Joanne Undi, Steve Bechtel, and Carol Chivington com- prised the largest group of National Merit Scholar- ship finalists in a Gavit senior class. More Glad voices than ever — those of seniors Sandy Grillion, Melanie Mayfield, Alice Rubin, Donna Stepano- vich, Pam Stephens, and alternate Dan Bratton — were chosen to sing in the elite 1975 All-Slate Choir. Selected to participate in the Indiana Uni- versity Honors Program for Foreign Languages were Joy Jankowski and Randy Van Vynckt, who lived in Europe for two summer months and studied French and German, respectively. Scientifically speaking, Ruth Dankanich ' s creative projects in psy- chology earned her numerous awards and a great deal of respect, while Bob Headrick was named second alternate to the 1975 International Science Fair for his work with gibberellic acid. Members of the Class of 75 also sported their powess in several areas of athletic endeavor. Tal- ented Rich Korem and Perry Ferrini were selected to the Times All-Conference football team. Korem starred in baseball and basketball as well. Super- stars Jeri Hoffmann and Kim Thomas were outstand- ing players on GAA extramural basketball, volley- ball, and field hockey teams. Mike Callahan was an exellent all-around athlete, as he earned All- Conference honors in soccer and football while winning the Lake Shore Conference and sectional wrestling championships at 155 pounds. Sharron Fullgraf set the state record for 220-yard dash (25.6 seconds) and played basketball, and Susan Pomplin was outstanding in tennis and basketball. All-Con- ference basketball center Tim Bajusz held the region ' s second highest scoring average (21.5 points) for the 74-75 season, and his high scholastic average earned him Academic All-State honors. Officers for the Class of 1975 were as follows: freshman — Pres. Art Labus, V.P. Pam Stephens, Sec. Eydie Parsley, Treas. Susan Pomplin; sopho- more — Pres. Mike Callahan, V.P. Pam Stephens, Sec. Becky Medwetz, Treas. Susan Pomplin; junior — Pres. Becky Medwetz, V.P. Jim Saltanovitz, Sec. Bob Headrick, Treas. Christy Blaine; senior — Pres. Jack Tatusko, V.P. Pam Stephens, Sec. Mary Stevens, Treas. Perry Ferrini. Mr. RicJiard Willis and Miss Laurel Vicari were the sponsors for the Class of 1975. ffili Seniors 95 Mzm CHARLES M.

Most of the eleventh graders started looking forward to their future plans. In October many 76 ' ers took the PSAT test, the preliminary exam before the important college entrance test, the SAT, which is taken by seniors. Juniors had the opportunity to learn about the institution of their choice at College Night on November 13, when representatives from several colleges and univer- sities came to Gavit. The juniors ' biggest responsibility was handling the arrangements for Gavit ' s 1975 Junior-Senior Prom, " We May Never Pass This Way Again, " held at Marquette Park Pavilion on May 10. The prom chairperson was Wendy Carle, and seven committees worked to make arrangements for the hall, line up the bands, work on bids and favors, send invitations and obtain chaperones, make signs for publicity, sell and account for tick- ets, and decorate the hall for the occasion. The Class of 76 junior officers were Jeff Feder- off, president; Kevin Werth, vice president; Pam Schmit t, secretary; and Elaine Connell, treasurer.

In order to meet this greatly increasing demand, the business department offered over 15 courses in almost every field. There were three specific courses of study: stenography developed skills for a successful typing, sten- ographic or secretarial position; clerical courses developed skills for general office work; and bookkeeping prepared book- keeping majors to be typists, clerk Education (C.O.E. program. Part- icipants in this program received job placement in which reputable companies cooperated with stu- dents in apprentice programs.

Perspective 151 Special education helps Gavit ' s special education de- partment was designed to pro- vide help for students who had specific learning problems. Students enrolled in this pro- gram, from both middle school and high school, were taught the basic skills of math, English, sci- ence and social studies. They also could take almost any elective they chose. However, the main goal of the special ed program was to get stu- dents back into a regular program of classes and to help them feel accepted by their fellow students in school. Since the students in each class vary in their capabilities and speed of progress, classes were individualized. This gave the teacher more time and oppor- tunity to know their students a little better so that they could help each one progress at his own speed. The special ed teachers stress- ed independence to make the students in their program self-suf- ficient members of their com- munity. To further this goal, they had a work-study program simi- liar to the C.O.E. program — half a day of study, half a day of work. They punched in and out, got paid, and just got the feel of job life. Another service of the special ed department was a plan for the blind and partially sighted. Mr. Bretschneider was the teacher who acted as tutor, counselor and over-all trouble shooter for these students, who worked to become independent citizens. Room 215 provided a place where the five students in the program could use Braille, large print, and tape- recorded materials, as well as re- ceive help from Mr. Bret- schneider, to do their homework from regular classes.

Stu- dents from the phased-out UICSM program were rechan- nelled into math analysis and cal- culus classes. Here they learned advanced math skills necessary for many technical professions. Algebra, ..geometry, general math and basic math classes con- tinued to provide students with a sound mathematical back- ground for college and everyday living. In algebra students learned the basic language of math that is used in college. Geometry stu- dents applied their algebra know- ledge to draw rectangles, circles and use other Euclidean con- cepts. In the Basic Math I and General Math I classes students learned how to deal with everyday arith- metic problems. Basic Math II and General Math II students pursued their practical math skills by learning to deal with interest, loans, and problems that they will encounter in the business world. 1 Mr. M.P.

Scientists seek self-discovery Science teachers made class- room learning fun by encourag- ing students to make interesting discoveries on their own, while staying open to a little scientific humor as well. Avid science students could take all five science courses, be- ginning with the required one — semester health and safety class. They could then continue with full-year classes, including bi- ology, advanced biology, chem- istry and physics. All students were required to take only one laboratory science course, be- sides health and safety. Health and safety students gained a better understanding of their bodily functions and basic physical and emotional needs. Mr. Paul Brush also taught his five classes how to prevent acci- dents and react effectively in emergencies. Biology, the study of flora and fauna (plant and animal life), helped students appreciate the natural environment around them. Miss Laurel Vicari conduct- ed her four biology classes in a scientifically organized fashion in the hope of teaching students clear, logical thinking. Mrs. Fran- ces Reinke encouraged her three classes to have a lifelong interest in science, exposing them to such natural wonders as the healing power of the alivari plant. Depart- ment head Michael Kobe pre- pared his two biology classes to engage in further scientific in- vestigation by teaching them ef- ficient scientific methods, correct microscopic examination, and how to accurately collect data. All three biology teachers had students read special pro- grammed learners to aid in study. Advanced biology students re- ceived valuable college prepara- tion as they pursued one semes- ter of anatomy with a semester of cytology (the study of cell bi- ology). Having to memorize hun- dreds of terms for human mus- cles and bones, anatomy students also dissected animal specimens such as sharks and fetal pigs in order to compare differences in body structure among verte- brates. Cytology students learn- 156 Perspective Q fish, and fruit fly. Chemistry and physics were taught by Mr. David Vrbanich, a novice teacher who tried to improve room 313 by restoring lab benches, replacing non-po- tent chemicals, and posting new scientific charts. Chemistry stu- dents learned about the structure of matter and how it behaves by experimenting with such mater- ials as sulphur dioxide and sodi- um hydroxide. By observing how mechanical devices such as pulleys and levers move objects, physics students gained an under- standing of how forces act upon matter. This year five students worked on complex independent pro- jects during the school year, and an additional seventy students prepared projects for Gavit ' s PTA- sponsored spring science fair. This type of self-reliant research has been very beneficial to Gavit science grads who have continu- ed their science education in col- lege. I think and think for months and years.

The industrial arts department offered seven elective courses which were graphic arts, wood- working, metals, electricity, draft- ing, plastics and ceramics, and power mechanics. Students interested in printing or photography earned the fun- damentals of these two skills in graphic areas. Included in the course were printing methods, design and layout techniques, and a brief unit on the history of the printing industry. An im- portant aspect of graphic arts was the Gladiator Press, a student- run production shop that print- ed almost anything for business- es and clubs and furnished many of Gavit ' s tickets and programs. Woodworking students learned the various tools of the trade in order to build wood construc- tions. Individual projects have in- cluded foot stools, pool cue racks, tables, coffee tables, and bows and arrows. Metals was an introduction to the various skills of the metal in- dustry including machining, welding and heat-treating. Be- sides these laboratory activities, a study of industrial organizations made students aware of occupa- tions in metals. Radio and television repair was an example of putting to use the knowledge students gained in electricity. They learned the basic principles of electricity in class and from textbooks, then applied their skills at school and at home. Drafting covered a wide range of skills from blueprint reading to the designing of a home. After students became familiarized with the basic drawing instru- ments they were able to make machine drawings and architec- tural drawings for home con- struction. Plastics and ceramics students learned to create objects using synthetic materials. Various forms of casting, molding, glazing and staining were taught so that stu- dents could combine their talent and knowledge into project work. Interest in engines and energy were explored in power mechan- ics. The internal combustion en- gine, concepts of energy conver- sion, and prospects for future power sources were studied in the program. Contrary to popular belief, the industrial arts program is not di- rected solely toward males. Many girls who have already completed industrial arts courses have shown talent and are furthering their education in this field. Neither are industrial art classes designed specifically for voca- tional training. The department is mainly concerned with broad- ening students ' knowledge of the field of industry, although stu- dents may also receive vocational guidance as well. 158 Perspective raw; In the ordinary business of life, industry can do anything which genius can do, and very many things which it cannot.

Singing together put them in hap- py moods — the kind of moods that lasted all day, as the tunes buzzed through their heads and filled their hearts with gladness. Among these happy groups were the Rhythmaires and Rhythmettes, which were ensem- bles consisting of sophomore, junior, and senior boys and girls in the music department. Three choirs were Concert Choir, Girls ' Chorale, and Mixed Glee. There were twenty-nine boys this year in the vocal department, and hopefully that many will stay on so that a vocal balance can be maintained in the mixed groups. Due to the enthusiastic super- vision of Mr. Clark, Gavit has had a consistently fine choral depart- ment. Last September six students were selected for All-State Choir. The Concert Choir was privi- leged to sing on WJOB radio at Christmas time, and Gavit ' s participation in the NISBOVA vo- cal contest in January was also excellent. Besides directing three choral presentations in October, De- cember, and April, Clark taught music theory, which helped those students who hoped to major in some musical field. He organized the trip made by twenty-seven musicians to Thornton Commu- nity College September 24 to learn about future careers in mu- sic. A fine arts festival in the spring combined the music and art departments. Gavit ' s brassy high school band helped to boost school spirit by performing spectacular half-time shows at five Friday night home football games. Teamwork made the difference and cooperation within the band had good effects. Mr. Zaley, Gavit ' s disciplinary di- rector, was very pleased with the hard-working group of students participating. Besides giving good formal concerts, the band members competed at a NISBOVA contest, 160 Perspective marched in several parades, and participated in Pep Band and Stage Band at basketball games. Band students had to be very devoted, since playing an instru- ment was such a time-consuming responsibility. As a reward for their fine efforts, the students took a trip, and played at a con- cert in the spring. Servant and Master am I; servant of those dead, and Master of those living.

Art projects was designed to give the students full opportunity to do whatever inspired them. Art projects instilled inde- pendence in the individual artist and promoted non-conforming creativity. The art department was also responsible for the beautiful scenery found at all of the plays and concerts during the year. Perspective 161 English courses vary Providing opportunities for stu- editor Joyce Pandak took lead of dents to learn to read, speak, and write more effectively, Gavit ' s English department offered three programs of required four-year English and seven elective courses. The regular English program provided a sound, workable background in vocabulary, gram- mar, and literature for. students not planning to continue their formal education after high school. The college preparatory program gave college-bound stu- dents advanced instruction to build their vocabulary with week- ly exerc ises master grammarian skills, practice 1 good composition tec hniques. and studv literature in depth The practical English program was designed to help students who have 1 not adequate- ly mastered language arts skills by detecting and correcting read- ing problems and reinforcing existing knowledge so as to ex- pand the student ' s ability. Perhaps the most beneficial preparation for college-bound students was the 1 six.-week refer- ence mini-course that depart- ment head Mrs. Angela Penny taught. College prep students learned to do independent re- search by making descriptive ref- erence cards for over fifty refer- ence 1 books. Although a very time-consuming project, this course has been acclaimed by students who benefitted from it in c ollege.

His last production was " A Distant Bell, " in May of 1974 Perspoc live th ( Electives cultivate student interest Included in the English depart- ment were speech, developmen- tal reading, and mass media. Newest of these three electives was the one-semester mass media class. Now completing its second year, mass media studied mass communications including photography, advertising, news- paper journalism, and electronic media consisting of film, televi- sion and radio. One major unit of the course was devoted to film study. The students were presented a short history of film as well as viewing and discussing films ranging from “The Great Train Robbery " to " Flash Gordon. " After each mov- ie the students analyzed and dis- cussed each film ' s setting, dia- logue, actors, and plot as film literature. Projects included student- made films, a short research pa- per, and slide-sound presenta- tions. Also unique in this class was the making of a news broad- cast via the A.V. video-tape ma- chine. Guests were invited to see a presentation of the best of these projects. It was hoped that through the study of print media, students gained interest in joining school publication staffs. Under the direction of Gavit ' s new drama coach, Mrs. Margarite Macey, the drama department of- fered many exciting opportuni- ties for dramatists. Drama nd stagecraft classes learned all about the artistic and technical aspects of ’he theater. Students pantomimed and por- trayed characters and studied theater history, stage technology, staging, vocal techniques, set. construction, lighting, sound sys- tems, business management, cos- tumes, and properties. Besides teaching the two class- es, Mrs. Macey directed plays and supervised usherettes, the Mime Troupe, and Thespians Honor So- ciety. She was very enthusiastic about spreading interest in the theatrical arts, and gave free per- formances and did charity work, by organizing a group that did 164 Perspective free puppet snows and other per- formances at elementary schools, hospitals, old people ' s homes and the Woodmar Mall. The year was a busy one, but added fun to the atmosphere at Gavit. Another course offered to any student who wants to improve in reading ability is developmen- tal reading. Participants are ex- pected to increase skills noticably. Speech class covered such in- teresting areas as impromptu, for- mal, informative, and persuasive speaking to aid students in public speaking. 1 Miss Dalia Malciauskas, Northern Illi- nois University B.S., M.S., English, Stu- dent Council sponsor. 2 Mrs. Angela Penny, Indiana University B.A. M.S., English, English department head 3 Mrs. Jeanne W.

French and German culture was brought back to language classrooms by Joy Jankowski and was the destination of many Spanish students during spring vacation. French students were true c ulture gourmets as they re- lished fine culinary delights at a French restaurant, feasted on French art at the Chicago Art In- Randy Van Vynckt, who studied two months in Europe 1 with the I.U. Honors Program for Foreign Language ' s. Having lived with a foreign family and attended a foreign school with no English spoken those eight weeks, Jov and Ranch were able to help Ga- vit students better understand grammar and literature of France and Germany Joy also taught as- pects of historical and modern French culture, and Randy gave German students a better under- standing of life in Deutschland Several projects added tea the foreign cultural refinement of language students. Spanish, French, and German Clubs all constructed Homecoming floats characteristic of each culture. Spanish and French students wrote and produc ed video-taped skits in the winter, and Mexico stitute, and savored plans to visit the French-speaking province of Quebec , Canada Home ec classes mixed Mixed classes added a new in- gredient to this year ' s foods c lass.

Girls of all grade levels par- ticipated in each of these sports, except soccei and dancing, un- der the auspices of G.A.A. intra- murals. Mr. A. Thompson, Mr. Wagner, and Mr. Life combined to instruct boys who played flag football, volleyball, basketball, and soft- ball. Boys also competed individ- ually in wrestling, weight train- ing, handball, swimming, gym- nastics, and track and field to im- prove their athletic skills. Hand- ball was the only boys ' sport of- fered intramurally. Gavit ' s P.E. program was not for physical improvement alone, but also attempted to demon- strate good teamwork and sport- manship. Gavit ' s physical education de- partment complemented acade- mics in providing a well-rounded education for Gladiators. P.E. pro- grams were designed to help stu- dents develop a sound body so that they could perform better in scholastic areas. All freshmen participated in team and individual sports in their gym classes, besides doing jumping jacks, sit-ups, push-ups and other exercises. These activi- ties taught students how to achieve physical fitness and de- velop athletic skills that make physical work-outs more enjoy- able. Miss Kelly and Mrs. Estep gave their gym students exposure to fifteen areas of sport. Girls prac- ticed team work with soccer, field hockey, flag football, volleyball, basketball, and softball. They worked also to improve their skills in bowling, table tennis, folk and modern dancing, tumbling and gymnastics, swimming, bad- The only place where ends meet now- adays is on the football field. 1 Mr. Earl V.

Eas- tern hemisphere cultures such as Russia, Asia, Africa, and the Mid.- dle and Far East were discussed in Geography I. In both semes- ters economic and physical fea- tures of the areas were stressed. All sophomores were required to have two semesters of world history. The first semester focused on prehistoric, ancient and medieval times. Civilizations from both East and West were includ- ed, stressing the development and contributions of each of the major civilizations. World History II dealt with everything from the beginning of modern history to the world we know today. Differ- ent types of government were discussed, placing emphasis on the background and the study of these concepts in comparison to today ' s world problems. Juniors gained knowledge of economic, political, diplomatic and social history up until the late nineteenth century in U.S. History I. During the second se- mester the students concentrated on the twentieth century, learn- ing how the U.S. became a g reat and powerful nation. 0 In government seniors learned about the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the gov- ernment, and the importance of each in today ' s society. Seniors also met with the challenge of economics. This course explained the basics of the business world, such as stocks and bonds, income tax, and the simple everyday transactions which are a part of everyone ' s future. The social studies department exposed students to different and interesting cultures, besides giv- ing them more insight into our culture. History is the transformation of tumultu- ous conquerors into silent footnotes.

Contemporary history involved research projects and library study about historical events that occurred after World War II. Stu- dents also discussed the sports, art, music, styles, and other is- sues of today. Sociology had students making questionnaires to find out others ' reactions to current issues such as alcoholism, drug abuse, and police brutality. Psychology work included case histories of a bizarre human be- havior, as students studied the innermost problems of the com- plex human mind. One such case concerned a small boy, who became a me- chanical human with no emo- tions, because of problems dur- ing his early childhood. Far eastern history students learned about past and present problems of Asiatic countries such as China and Japan. Panda bears, ping pong matches, and Great Wall tours that have brought us closer to Asian coun- tries were amon g diplomatic de- tente ' discussed. In history of the South, students learned the historical background of the southern States. Study be- gan with the first southern settle- jnents, including Jamestown and Williamsburg, and proceeded to present social changes in the South. Social studies electives were designed to give interested stu- dents a better understanding of other people in relation to them- selves, and of the world in gen- eral. 10 Mr. Jerry Woodard, Indiana State Uni- versity B.S., M.S., world history, cross country coach, assistant baseball coach 11 Mrs. Karen Kroczek, Indiana Univer- sity M.A., government, psychology 12 Mr. John Swanson, Colorado State Uni- versity, Stanford University B.S., M.A., economics, contemporary history, far eastern history, U.S. history 13 Miss Louise Williams, Southeast Mis- souri State College B.S., social studies, geography Perspective 171 172 Advertising H ■ " FOUR DOORS TO SECURITY r f SECURITY FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION OF LAKE COUNTY WiNlMUM MttMOK tr Joyce Pandak, Perry Ferrini Main Office 4518 Indpls.

Alot of serious effort and time has been spent on production of this year ' s book. There have been happy moments, sad mo- ments, as well as moments of frustration and anxiety. Being the editor of the 1975 Futura was an unforgettable experience for me as well as many others. I have learned alot about people — especially the members of my staff. Many times I didn ' t have enough confidence in them but they proved that I was wrong. Nobody can imagine the pride I felt during the first publications assembly. We have faced many problems, such as missing pictures, lost copy sheets, and early dead- lines. We learned that the only way to solve a problem is to face it and be willing to work. All the late nights we have spent in Room 216 have really been worth it. I would like to thank everyone for all the help they have given in making the ' 75 Futura a success. I would like to thank the Gavit faculty and the custodial staff for all their patience in the entire staff. Our special thanks to Mr. Harry Dudzik, he was there when we needed him. Also Mrs. Pat Lindemann our American Yearbook representative who came to our aid and helped us a great deal. My great appreciation goes to my parents for letting me spend so much time in yearbook. I don ' t know where to begin in thanking the entire staff and Mr. Kopenec. Everyone worked so hard. I really don ' t know how they put up with me. An editor can ' t ask for a better staff and adviser. I wish Kim Ganz and Diane Yokovich the best of luck with the 1976 Futura. THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE!!!
