" Hard but fun ' " It was hard work, but a lot of fun, " explained Deb- bie Dunlap ' 83. Wildcats spent their summer in a va- riety of ways; some cheered, while others worked with sheep. Mark Bauer ' 83 and Debbie Dunlap were both in the summer production of The Music Man which was performed at the Fire- fly Festival. " You are using your time wisely instead of just bumming around " ad- ded Mark. Mark had the part of the lead tenor in a quartet. Not only did he perform in the show, he also had several appear- ances outside the play. Debbie Dunlap played the part of Zaneeta, the may- or ' s daughter. The cheerleaders start- ed practicing in the begin- ning of July. " We had to put a lot of practice in, " stated Melanie Rowe ' 83, " If we didn ' t practice we wouldn ' t have been ready when school started. " The pom pon squad went to Indiana University for a four day workshop. They worked from 6 a.m. until as late as 2 a.m. some- times. " We had to learn new positions and different moves, " reflected Captain Amy Benko. Not all people went away, some stayed here in their own community and worked hard. Doug Mur- phy ' 85 was involved with 4-H. Some of the things he was enrolled in were wood- working, pigs, chickens, and rabbits. " The hardest thing was to care for the animals all the time, " re- flected Doug. Whether it was 4-H, summer camp, or early practices, for many stu- dents their summers were hard. But the " real thing " was that they were fun. m mr- M l 1 Zrv:Ji - B .?5 , 1 v M B 5 - Ik " -ir «■» m ▲. 1 Not only is Doug Murphy vice president of Junior Leaders, a group which helps out other members, but during the fair he was also involved with many oth- er activities.

a It will never be forgotten " While many students spent their summer work- ing, swimming, sunning, or just sitting around the house day dreaming, a few students had a little more adventure. Some students spent their time eating squid in Japan, singing at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, or watching PLO ex- hibitions in Isreal. Senior Steve Gardner went to Isreal to study the Hebrew language and trav- el throughout the country. His most memorable ex- perience was seeing the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and being able to cross the border into Egypt. In Tel Aviv he saw an exhibit of arms captured from the PLO. " The Soviet rifles, tanks, and missiles, along with documents giving dates for Isreali cities to be attacked, made a big im- pression on me, " stated Steve. England, France, Ger- many, Holland, and Scot- land were the stops made by Junior Kim Voreis. Kim traveled with the Red Tour Choir on American Music Abroad. She was recom- mended by a music teacher and after auditioning was granted the opportunity to go. Kim reflected, " Right before we were scheduled to perform at Notre Dame Cathedral we got soaked to the skin. We were all pretty down about it, but as soon as we started sing- ing, wet shoes didn ' t mat- ter any more. " Under the Youth for Un- derstanding program, Trish Boyce spent not only the summer, but almost a full year, living with an Australian family. Trish left for Australia in February of ' 82, just a few days before her 17th birthday. Her host family gave her a birthday party during her stay. While in Australia Trish kept up with her hob- bies. She competed with horses and won several awards. " There were things I was prepared for, like eat- ing with chopsticks, but I had my surprises, " stated Jennifer Showalter who witnessed some live oper- ations, an earthquake, and a typhoon. Jennifer received the special U.S. Senate-Japan Exchange Scholarship, awarded to two high school students from each state (under YFU). Jennifer stayed with a Japanese family where she had a 21 year-old brother and 17 year old sister along with an " okasan " (mother) and an " otosan " (father). At her sister Mariko ' s school, Jennifer taught some English classes. Most of the learning had to be on Jennifer ' s part though! " I learned enough Japanese to be polite and ask ques- tions, but I depended a lot on Mariko, " related Jenni- fer. Jennifer had many re- actions toward her visit. Little children would chant " Gaijin " (foreigner) and people would stare, but she was always treated like royalty. " I don ' t feel like my trip will ever be forgot- ten, " reflects Jennifer, " I have a second family now, and a special sis not many people have. " Uniforms were required by Trish Boyce ' s new school in Australia. Trish attended school with her 14 yr-old host brother. 12 Student Life
