ALLEN COUNTY PUBLIC LIBBAB1 ' 3 1833 01883 1112 Be what nature intended you for. . IROQUOIAN Published By Iroquois Central School Elma, New York Volume 13, 1968 Editor-in-Chief: Debbie Coates Production Manager: Marsha Ryan Layout-Art Editor: Betty Radder Photography Editor: Frank Cutson Sports Editor: Fred Boeheim Be what nature intended you for, and you will succeed Whatever you are from nature, keep to it. Never desert your own line of talent. Be what nature intended you for, and you will succeed. —Sydney Smith Each of us is endowed. . . Each of us is endowed with a special natural ability. This gift varies from individual to individual. Some have a singular talent. Others have a talent which is common to many. Some have only one field of talent. Others have an aptitude in several fields. Yet all talent is innate. If we have talent, we can do easily something others find difficult. Before it can be profitable to ourselves or society, talent must be discovered and then disciplined. Nature intended us for some purpose. . . Nature has intended each person for some purpose- to be accomplished through the perfection of his talent. First, we must discover our talent. And school abounds in opportunities for such discoveries. Numerous activities here challenge our interests. From advanced studies and speech clubs to choral presentations, journalism, and sports, we have a chance to stumble on our natural talent. Talent must be disciplined. . . To be of value, talent must be disciplined. For some talents a degree of conditioning is required. We prepare ourselves both physically and mentally and are enthusiastic to learn new ideas. Sometimes we set goals- hours are spent perfecting a painting, composing a musical piece, researching a special report. This is our life at school Each of us- senjors and under classmen alike -discovers and disciplines our talent in classrooms in sports in special clubs. And this is our life at school. CONTENTS Academics Seniors 12 24 Underclassmen 58 Sports 76 Organizations 104 Student Life 120 Patrons 140 ACADEMICS PROPERTY OF YELLOWSTONE GENEALOGY FORUM Staff dedicates its annual to Mrs. Elizabeth Clack Mrs. Elizabeth Clack centered her studies around for- eign languages at her alma mater, Auburn High School, and graduated from Keuka College, New York with a Latin major and a French minor. Upon completing her formal education with a master ' s degree from Murray State College, Kentucky, she began her teaching career in 1928. She served in several foreign language departments in Kentucky and New York before joining the Iroquois fac- alty in September, 1959. Latin was again her specialty, but English and French classes also occupied her days. To her students, she may be recalled as the teacher who drew hearts on homework papers, or wrote rhymes to help students remember verb endings. Because of her per- sonal interest in each student and the cultural background she is able to present, her presence at ICS has enhanced us all. It is with appreciation for her seriousness of purpose and devotion to learning that we, the 1968 staff of the " Iroquioian, " dedicate our annual to Mrs. Elizabeth Clack, a true professional in the teaching art. She relaxes with fellow teachers. Mrs. Clack teaching Latin students 14 Academics Mrs. Elizabeth Clack Board of Education.

Commencement, as we know it, denotes that thin line between immaturity and maturity. It is a goal- line reached only through a systematic action of study, participation, decision-making, perseverance, etc. You were assisted most of the way by the guidance and counseling of parents, teachers, clergy, and friends. After commencement comes maturity and independ- ence. Each decision will be your own with the ever- resultant consequences of gain or loss, happiness or sorrow, right or wrong. The wise will learn to convert reverses into gainful growth through tolerance, logic, and careful planning. There is no limit on success. The answer rests with you. America guarantees you the right to make decisions for yourself as a mature individual. It also demands an equal responsibility for that right— that your decisions will function within the laws of the land. Best wishes, dear friends— Do not abdicate your rights to any group, nor fail in recognizing your responsibilities. —A.

New social studies courses included Economics, Gov- ernment, Sociology, and Ancient History. In senior-year English, the new choices involved Com- position, Journalism, English Literature, and World Lit- ature. Other new electives, including half-day courses at East Aurora High School, were Cosmetology, Auto Mechanics, and Data Processing, all offered to prepare students for a particular occupation after high school. The ICS guidance department reported that these elect- tives allowed " more latitude in a student ' s curriculum. " According to research, the department said, students are more interested in classes they have chosen themselves. Cosmetologist Barbara Zieziula sets a customer ' s hair. 18 Academics Plan your memories, advises Mr. Hickey Memories can be beautiful, pleasant and satisfying. They are vital to the well-being of any person. I like to believe that, as bread is to flesh and blood, so also are memories to the soul. If we investigate the reasons for derelicts, both young and old, existing in our society, we find that they have been overwhelmed by unpleasant memories. Memory of unfortunate associations, if nurtured by constant recall, has been observed to warp the mind and life of him who will not forgive. Please allow me to counsel that memories can be plan- ned. When you have been wronged, the act of commiting a kindness in return for harsh or inhuman treatment will live in your memory as an experience. By planning, you can prevent the storing of unhappy memories. I hope that your association with Iroquois Central has provided you with pleasant memories. Congratulations. — Robert J. Hickey Robert Manchester, mathematics and data processing James McCready, science Miss Barbara Millar, physical education Mrs. Thelma Neidig, nurse-teacher Mrs. Lila Nevergold, English Deon Nielson, mathematics Carl Norberg, mathematics Robert Hickey, administrative assistant Twelve-year period sees enrollment triple at ICS With a total enrollment of 777 students crowding the halls in the past year, the ICS student body has more than tripled in the school ' s twelve-year history. Senior high corridors saw just 246 students in 1956. Some 229 seniors will graduate in the June commence- ment exercises. In 1956, only 63 seniors marched across the stage to receive diplomas. To suit the needs of the ever- increasing enrollment, the school built the 1200 wing and 300 wing in 1958. While the number of students at Iroquois has been increasing, so have their teachers. In 1956 there were only 32 teachers. Now the faculty consists of 51 teachers. Of the 1956 faculty only these teachers continue to teach senior high students: Mrs. Dorothy Seileman, James McCready, Elwood Eaton, Donald Lamp, Clifford Luders, and Robert Manchester. Maureen Steinhilber is one of many new students at Iroquois.

Your happiness and success lie within you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer trappings. The great, enduring realities are love and service. I will always remember with fondness the largest class ever to graduate from our school. Don ' t forget to come back to your Alma Mater at any time. We will be happy to see you. —Russell E.

As editor of the newly-formed and success- ful newspaper, the " Warrior " , Onalee headed the staff which produced an outstanding publication. She is active in girls ' athletics and, as varsity captain, she culminated her four years on the cheerleading squads. Other notable achievements include the office of southern sub-district secretary for District 14 Student Council, the DAR award, and a runner-up in the annual Elk ' s Award Contest. Onalee is the AFS sister for Letty Martinetti, our exchange student from Ecuador. Onalee is a member of the basketball team. Onalee Munn, outstanding senior girl Senior Class Officers.

Bill Lazarus, C-C runner, outstanding senior boy Bill Lazarus was elected outstanding senior boy. As president of one of New York State ' s largest Key Clubs, Bill presided over the meetings and led this service organization in its community and fund raising activities. He also served as a Varsity Club director. He distinguished himself in sports by establishing eight different cross country course records and placing second in the state cross country meet. As co-captain of the team, Bill also placed first in both the divisional and sectional cross country meets. Four years of basketball and track round- ed out his sports career, and Bill, in addition, holds re- cords for the two-mile event in track. Thus Bill earned the students ' votes on the basis of his leadership qualities and outstanding athletic career.

STEWART MICHAEL WEBSTER Seniors mourn passing of teacher, Donald Sipprell In the autumn, Iroquois lost a history teacher who had been working with senior classes since 1959. Donald Sipprell graduated from Hamburg High School in 1935. He attended the University of California and graduated from the University of Buffalo in 1958. He had been active in school government, and enjoyed boxing for recreation. At ICS, Mr. Sipprell taught World History, American History, and Great Issues. In extra-curricular activities, he began a debate club, advised the Student Council, and conducted a lively " Quiz Bowl. " Although ill-health haunted him in his last months, Mr. Sipprell faced it with a characteristic sense of humor. He died on October 4, 1967, at the age of 51. The senior class mourns its loss. Mr. Sipprell inaugurated the Great Issues elective for seniors. Donald Sipprell Thrasher leads 230 through senior year Some 230 seniors will be graduating in commencement exercises on June 23, 1968. Their last year of high school was like this: In Septem- ber, they elected officers: John Thrasher, president; Dave Yandricha, vice-president; Mary Scott, secretary; and Jim Stone, treasurer. Thrasher and his adviser, Mr. Hunt, organized the class ' s magazine sale in the fall. Proceeds from the sale supported their 1968 " Iroquoian. " The class displayed its artistic qualities in the annual homecoming float. They received a first-place ribbon. They did inaugurate the " Computer Dance, " which was the best attended dance in the history of the school, according to Thrasher. Seniors enter gym for pep assembly. Jeff Wright participating in Grub Day. Pat Gilbert and Lynn Missel in home mechanics, one of the school ' s new electives. 52 Seniors Peggy Foersch, Donna Dittmann, Laurie Eagle, and Becky Willis at girls ' basketball practice. Mike Abt placed third in the state match. On March 8, the seniors created Grub Day, a day when they " dressed down " in old, grubby clothes. They have their athletes: over sixty percent of the sen- ior boys earned varsity letters during their high school years. They have their scholars: 22 seniors won Regents schol- arships, with eight alternates; and close to seventy percent of the seniors want to continue their learning after high school, according to the guidance office. On May 25, the seniors danced to the prom theme of " Gone With The Wind. " They took their theme from a novel which described the last good days before a con- flict. On June 23, they will gather together for the last time as the class of 1968. Seniors elect classmates in ' mostest ' categories The results of the class poll, as announced at the Senior Banquet, June 7, are determined by performance through- out past years: DONE MOST FOR IROQUOIS Onalee Munn, Bill Lazarus DONE IROQUOIS FOR THE MOST Peg Hartnett, Ken Hill FEARLESS LEADERS Mary Scott, Bob Valentine MOST ADMIRED Marsha Ryan, Joe Szczukowski BEST APPEARANCE Betty Radder, Bruce Chaffee MOST ATHLETIC Becky Willis, Mike Abt MOST SCHOOL SPIRIT Onalee Munn, Bill Lazarus FRIENDLIEST Claudia Kratt, Tom Winegar MOST CONSIDERATE Debbie Coates, Mark Rieman CLASS FLIRT Peg Foersch CLASS PLAYBOY Rick Moffett Larry Lasky, a National Merit finalist.

Ed Griffiths finds Germany a myriad of experience This year spent in a region of Germany with the legend- ary Rhine and its renowned Lorelei has been a myriad of unforgettable experiences. Bad Schwvalbach, my home this year, is a resort area of 6500 inhabitants located north west of Wiesbaden. The Schopfs maintain a hotel and guest area here. Rudi and I ride to Wiesbaden every day (Saturdays too!) to attend Gutenberg Gymnasium from 8:00 A.M. until 7:00 P.M. I study eleven subjects, with four classes a week in such subjects as German, philosophy, English, math and social issues. The teaching of " thinking " pre- ponderates over amassing an excess of factual knowledge. Four to five five-hour exams, during the year with the Abitur (culmination exam), are given in many subjects as an additional obstacle for these students in their last year as my brother Rudi is. I ' d like to give AFS and Iroquois a " schonen Dank " for introducing me to Germany and its life. Edward Griffiths Ed said, " My class during a riotous break.

Swedish life a whirlwind for AFS ' er Dan Weise Life in Sweden has been a whirlwind of fascinating places, and events, a kaleidoscope of activity from the first moments in language camps to the rigorous chal- lenges of everyday life. The Christmas celebrations were highlighted by the uniquely Swedish smorgasbord, the customary Christmas ham, and the traditional SKOL. A trip to Stockholm during the holiday season was accentuated by attendance at the Nobel Prize ceremonies. The Swedish gymnasium, Hedbergska Skolan, which I attend is on a purely academic level in comparison to our high school. The student ' s schedule includes a greater number of subjects, emphasis on foreign language and specialization of courses as the first step to concentrated university study. My relationship with the Swedes has been extremely rewarding. They attempt to know a person intimately, rather than just as a representative of another land. I would sincerely like to say thanks to everyone who has worked for AFS and has helped make this year a success. Dan ' s family: Sven, Dan, Mrs. Wird, Mr. Wird. ' My school after the first snow.

The team placed sixth out of 20 schools in the E.C.I.C. meet at Buffalo State and fourth out of 1 2 schools in the Section 6 AA meet at Hamburg. Both these showings topped the performance of any previous track team in the respective meets. There were also seven school records broken. They are as follows: Jim Martin (440), Joe Szczukowski (880), Gary Snyder (mile), Bill Lazarus (two-mile), Jeb Snow, " Trackman of the Year, " (triple-jump), John Hilton (high-jump); and Mike Reardon, Larry Lewis, Tom Up- ham, and Bill Coddington set the school record in the mile medley relay. In addition, Jeb Snow, Bill Lazarus, and John Hilton became the first Iroquois trackmen ever to compete in the state finals. Mike Abt strives for distance in the long jump.

In the sixth game, Cleveland Hill led, 4-2, in the ninth inning. With two out, Rick Moffett was hit with a pitched ball. Dan Yacobush got on by an error, placing Iroquois runners on first and second. Pitcher Cliff Merkle, who had gone the whole game, was at bat. Coach Stohrer told Merkle just to " meet th e ball, not try and kill it. " Merkle met the first pitch, sending it over the right-field fence and winning the game for Iroquois, 5-4. Leading hitters for the season included Merkle with a .364 average, Yacobush with .278, and Tom McCarthy with .267. The team voted Merkle its " Most Valuable Player. " %1 Jim Holmwood fields a grounder. Power, pitching lead J.V. ' s to 5-5 season The 1967 J. V. baseball team completed the season with a mediocre record of 5—5. Coached by Mr. Knowles, the team had many fine victories. Against Springville, Jerry Kresconko pitched an excellent no-hit, no-run game. Don VanLew broke the game wide open with a two-run double in the last of the seventh inning. When the team traveled to J.F.K., Dave Paddock fired a one-hitter and won the game 8-0. Against arch-rival East Aurora, the team cracked four homers, played an all-round excellent game and won 9—6. Towards the end of the season, the J. V. ' s lost the services of Jim Holmwood, Kresconko and Roger Cryan, as they were called up to assist the varsity squad. J. V. Baseball. FRONT ROW: J. Bolis, M. Meindl, L. Szczukowski, D. Rams- dell, D.

Chiefs drop 3, snap back for strong season finish Pre-season picks had the varsity football squad tagged for last place, but a strong finish placed it in a second- place tie in Division II. The season started poorly, with the Chiefs dropping the first three games. Improvements were shown each week and with Terry Gillogly at the helm for the East Aurora game, they romped to a 19-0 victory. The 18-12 homecoming victory over heavily-favored Sweet Home was followed by five consecutive victories. Iroquois ' ' 67 team placed right tackle Jock Phillips and left halfback Jim Matthewson on the first string, Division II, all-star team. Averaging only 168 pounds, and being the smallest school in the division, the squad needed something spe- cial going for them. They had it in team spirit and pride, according to Coach Pat Patterson.

Sue Mohn and Donna Fierle served their regular duty on alternate weeks, or subsituted sometimes for a missing girl so that a full squad of eight could perform. The cheerleaders sponsored four pep assemblies. For the homecoming rally, the squad switched from their usual theme of " fractured fairy tales " to that of " ruined rhymes. " Using nursery rhymes to tell a story, a four- part skit was produced emphasizing the defeat of the opponent, Sweet Home, as well as the greatness of the athletic teams. The squad talks to Springville ' s cheerleaders during half-time. Not shown is Sue Sny- der, junior cheerleader.

Loss to Cleveland Hill tops exciting JV season The junior varsity football team lost a squeaker to Cleveland Hill. A great effort was shown but it did not prove to be enough with 30 seconds to go in the game. ICS had the ball on their six-yard-line and it was first and goal. The squad was trailing, 13 to 14. The quarter- back called for a quarterback-sneak. The ball was fumbled, and Cleveland Hill recovered and ran out the clock. The team was led by captains Dave Halliday and Paul Gukich to a season record of 3 wins and 5 losses, under Coaches Petersen and Stohrer. JV Cheerleaders Hold Summer Practices Pre-season practices were held in the summer for the junior varsity cheerleaders. They had several baked- goods sales to earn money to purchase their jackets and buy material to make new uniforms. The adviser for the cheerleaders is Miss Millar. Joyce Ciski was captain of the team during the fall sports season and Debbie Young was captain during the winter season. Also leading the sports teams with cheers were the following girls: Diane Campbell, Barb Gleed, Nancy Rankin, Sue MacDonald, Ginger Dolber, and Mary Leydecker.

Iroquois again wins division championship The Iroquois cross country team, now in Division II for the first year, won the Division Championship once more. This year ' s team felt they worked hard preparing for the ECIC meet at Chestnut Ridge. The varsity squad placed first in Class AA at the Buffalo State Invitationals and the junior varsity squad placed second in the JV meet. This year, Bill Lazarus and Jeff Houghton won shields at the Section VI meet. The two boys then went to the state finals held at Elma Meadows, where Bill Lazarus placed second, and Jeff Houghton placed twenty-eighth. Coach McCready summed the season up in this manner: " Fine leadership qualities of the seniors brought forth the desire and better running efforts from the young team. This played a major part in the success of the season. " Coach Yale serves breakfast to George Miller. 91 Matmen set back Attica in tense grudge match Climaxing the ICS wrestling season was a grudge match against Attica, who handed Iroquois their only loss last year. The lead changed hands several times, according to Coach Patterson, until the trio of Jim Kemmerer, Mike Abt, and Ken Hill were to wrestle. These boys wrapped up the match. The Section VI AA tournament held at Iroquois Cen- tral Junior High this year saw ICS snatch the title from Niagara-Wheatfield by a score of 104 to 103. ICS champs included Randy Foucha in the 95 lbs. class, Charlie Sch- neckenberger in 112 lbs., Jim Kemmerer in I54 lbs. and Mike Abt in I65 lbs. Abt and Kemmerer, in addition, were intersectional winners and state competitors. Abt placed third in his weight class in the state meet at Syracuse. Tension mounts on ICS bench. i( mMl A-String.

Swim team finishes last in tougher Division II Coached by Mr. Crawford, Mr. Grundy, and Miss Mil- lar, the Iroquois swimming team finished in last place in Division II this year. Of 15 meets, the team won only two. Co-captains were Peter Raquet and Ken McGiveron. Ken continued breaking the school diving record this year, currently holding 194 points for six dives. Ken also won the ECIC diving championship. Coaches Crawford, Grundy, and Millar were awarded engraved whistles by the team at a swimming banquet prior to the EClC ' s. Typical of the frustrating season was the first meet with Depew. Iroquois seemed to win when they took the last event, the 400 yd. free-style relay. Elated, the team threw the coach into the pool. In its own lane, Depew was still finishing, and Iroquois was disqualified. Coaches Crawford, Grundy; Captains Raquet, McGiveron.

Under the direction of Mr. Elwood Eaton, the almost one-hundred voice chorus performed many times during the course of the year. Some of these included Christmas and spring concerts, the yearly operetta, and participation in commencement activities. Some individuals from the group performed at county and state competitions. At each performance a remembered impression of tenor, bass, alto and soprano voices, mixed professionally, was shared by an appreciative audience. Every member of the organization had a tremendous feeling of satisfaction. Officers for this year were Jim Kemmerer, president; Onalee Munn, vice-president; Diane LaBelle, secretary; and Nola Bogardus, treasurer.

Library staff camps out at Allegheny State Park Jackie Wheeler, president of the library staff, along with Kathy Anticola, secretary to the staff, programmed a candy sale this year, to raise enough money for a camp- ing trip held at Allegheny State Park. The girls also put extra effort into the annual picnic held at Letchworth Park. The girls decorated the library at Christmas in a beauti- ful and unusual fashion. They also received many new books to arrange and fill out cards for. Besides being busy with the regular activities, the girls found the time for tobogganing, skating, and bowl- ing parties. Key Club Goes to Steel Plant The Key Club, led by Bill Lazarus, president, sponsored a fruit-cake sale to raise money for many of the field trips the boys took. A trip to the Bethlehem steel plant impressed many of the boys. Besides doing many services for the Kiwanis Club, the boys ushered at College Night. They also had their annual ladies ' night and camp-out. Laurie Eagle checks out library books. ' Warrior ' replaces ' Chieftain, ' adopts Marine platoon " Warrior " page editors inspect a rival ' s product. Switching its name from the " Chieftain " to the " Warrior, " the student newspaper took on a new look in a 3-column format. Led by Editor-in-Chief Onalee Munn, the page editors produced articles on everything from an alumni column to a so-called advice column by a so-called psychiatrist. Dr. Gasport. While turning out seven issues, the staff ' s big project was sending Christmas gifts to a Marine platoon in Vietnam. Kathy Fabian organized a touch-football game between teachers to raise money for the gifts, and Debbie Kohler collected letters from ICS girls to the Marines. New faculty adviser for the newspaper organization was Robert Bowen. Quili and Scroll Group Established ICS established its chapter of International Quill and Scroll Society in June, 1967. Intended to honor out- standing members of school publications, the society inducted 21 members, including these 1967 graduates: Donna Baun, Chris Boldt, Sue Bradley, Tony Bussman, Peggie Ciski, Margaret Kalinowski, Jackie Knobloch, Sue Norton, Sue Rich, Pedro Santos, Chris Urbanek, Kathie Williamson, Brenda Bryant, Diane Matthews, and Marlene Wojcik.

Typists, in September, found a new electric typewriter to supplement their old manual; and photographers worked with a new camera and electronic flash. Under- classmen dominated some staffs, and one junior held a full editorship. But seniors continued to provide both the top leader- ship and the financial support, through their magazine sale, for the yearbook. They added a " Student Life " section to the book, experimented with duotone color, and produced the first ICS book with a full theme.

Fond memories remain of 1967 prom, ' Camelot ' The 1967 prom owes its great success to many hours of constant work. The theme, " Camelot, " was illustrated by a drawbridge entrance into the huge and illustrious castle of King Arthur. Large murals of the days of old and mannequins resembling a knight and a lady created a lasting effect. The climax of the evening came with the crowning of the King, Ron Guard, and the Queen, Pat Drushler, along with their court. Tie tacks and charms were the souvenirs given as a reminder of the happy memories of the prom. Court watches as Frank Stuckey crowns Ron Guard, King. Kathy Williamson paints castle columns.

Homecoming weekend features 4 Kon GeiKai ' A successful dance culminated Homecoming ' 67, a weekend marked by colorful athletic victories and an impressive parade of floats. This year ' s theme was " Color My World " and was incorporated in the motifs of the floats and the traditional semi-formal dance. The activities began successfully Friday afternoon at Chestnut Ridge, where the cross country team placed first in the E.C.I.C. Divisional Meet. On Saturday, the football team won an exciting game against Sweet Home, 18-12, which was highlighted by a decisive goal-line stand in the fourth quarter. The majorettes ' halftime performance was followed by the parade of floats. The senior class was awarded first prize for their elaborate float. Its Grecian theme was well-presented, and the float carried Queen Betty Radder and senior attendants Sue Bernfeld and Peggy Foersch. Sophomore attendants Peggy McCarthy and Lauri Rankin, and junior attendants Judy Carlson and Alana Graham rode on the floats depicting Italy and Holland respectively.

At intermission, the great " Locker Room 6, " a group of senior high boys, danced to the music of " The Stripper. " For their weeks of work and toil, they were rewarded by a thundering applause from the audience. Marsha Gleed remarked that " It certainly was worth it.

Massacre raises money for gifts to Marines It was a happening— the senior high challenged the jun- ior high to a teachers ' touch-football game. Iroquois sat back and waited for D— Day to come. October 31, 1967, marked the landing of the troops. Tension mounted as the game started. On the very first play of the game. Lightning Bolt Lamp pitched out to Scatback Scanlon, who rolled around the right side for a twenty-yard loss and a safety-the only time the senior high got close enough to the goal line to score. In the ensuing slaughter, the junior high ran by, passed over, and generally trampled their huffing and puffing elders by 26-0. The game was sponsored by the " Warrior " newspaper staff to raise money for Christmas gifts to be sent to a mortar platoon in the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, then in combat in Vietnam. l JWP|£. fiM,:. r ' M s Vv HhHrk i ' , W k Ns w «p Miss Albarella and Mrs. Sanborn, cheerleaders 130 Faculty Football His tongue out, quarterback McCready faces a blitz.

She spoke to the senior high on anthropology, fascinating everyone with her past ex- perience. There were always the pep assemblies which every student anticipated eagerly as a chance to show pride in his team as well as give his voice a good work-out with the cheerleaders.
