t. The Homecoming Dance found young Mishawakans experimenting with new steps and rejuvenating the old as they danced to the beat of the Cambridge Five, a popular local band. The first social event sponsored by the Student Council proved to be an encouraging success. Blazing Bonfire, Football Signal Fall Leaving the beaches far behind, MHS ' ers made the seasonal transition from casual vacationers to Sep- tember students. Assignments replaced amusements as a nightly routine and the library became the " meeting place of the minds. " Becoming involved in churches, clubs, and community activities, students generated their own brand of " Hoosier hysteria. " Traveling Cavekids recounted their experiences away from home and discussed life in Europe and Mexico. In late August they dusted off the welcome mat as the Malaysian exchange student, Suhalia Sham- suddin, arrived. Even before the academic year began, a bonfire sparked a unified blaze of school spirit. To free weekends for " goofing off, " schedules were planned down to the wire. Indian summer found MHS ' ers in the great outdoors participating in hay- rides, camping trips, hootenannies, football games, and leaf raking. Informal get-togethers combining studies with talk found us to be " refrigerator raiders " and insomniacs. We " lived for today, " putting vocab cards, math prob- lems and themes into tomorrow ' s worries. Exchange Student Suhaila Shamsuddin received a football for her 17th birthday from her Sunday afternoon touch football teammates.

Practical jokers, Cindy Thielking, Leslie Creakbaum, and Barb Kalil assist Mother Nature by burying a senior friend ' s Sunbeam. Their mischief ended as the city " leaf reaper " arrived and its opera- tor quizzed the girls about the odd-shaped, oversized pile of leaves. Demonstrating his winning slogan, Student Council President David Neve! shows how to " Ride the New Wave With Dave. " " Fired Up " MHS ' ers burned a Marian knight in effigy, highlighting the traditional pre-season bonfire and rally.

Rainy Homecoming Dampens Parade Imagination plus engineering know-how, such as how to nail chicken wire both effectively and neatly, helped float planners contrive inventive themes for Homecoming ' 67. Staying up later as the days pro- gressed, workers found themselves disregarding straggling hair and paint-blotched clothes to complete their projects. Prize-winning floats artistically dis- played thousands of disguised paper napkins and kleenex. For the first time in 21 years, rain temporarily put a damper on Homecoming activities. Yet, a rollicking race between MHS faculty members on tandems, and cycle-riding Michigan City " Red Devils " climaxing the frenzied pep assembly in the gym, protected spirit from the disheartening weather. The wariness of threatening weather and an ominous Friday the 13th did not stop the Cavemen on the football field, either. Before 5,000 excited fans, Mishawaka clubbed the Devils 27-7, giving us added reason to celebrate. At the half, while the band and choir serenaded the candidates, Student Council President Dave Nevel crowned Senior Diana Roberts Homecoming Queen. Later she and her court presided over the dance where Cavekids rocked. Nervous anticipation produced smiles as the jun didates promenaded hopefully before the student ior attendant can- body. Tom Reith and Terry DeMaegd estimate the number of napkins need- ed to complete the gigantic ' 68 whale float to capture theme prize. Varsity cheerleaders scream in delight while the scoreboard clock runs out, posting another MHS Homecoming win.
