Lab assistant Kerry Deardorff checks to see that everything is in order before chemistry classes begin their first experiments using the new lab facilities. Changeth, Yielding Place to New 9 —Tennyson Never static in psychedelic 1968, MHS personnel, teaching methods, and facilities adapted and changed. Shining, up-to-date chemistry labs were in- stalled providing science students with greater op- portunities for learning. A renovated schedule of classes brought everyone to school at eight o ' clock and completely eliminated eighth hour classes. Last June after 19 years as Superintendent of Schools, Dr. John J. Young retired. Dr. Robert R. Freeman took over the work and responsibilities of this position bringing fresh ideas and enthusiasm to Mishawaka School City. New courses were added to the cur- riculum of the English, Business, and Industrial Arts Departments. The clock in the tower, repaired by the Class of 1967, ticked off the passing minutes of the year. For the first time, seniors proudly displayed the traditional tower on oval class rings. In June they donned maroon caps and gowns rather than the traditional black ones.

Schedule Benefits Classes, Clubs Mike Kovatch, S. J. Mitchell, and Ron Hawn look over the packaging problems they must try to solve in the new Industrial Design class. For most students the new schedule provided the greatest change in their life at school. With no classes eighth hour, teachers had more time to give individual attention to the students who sought help, to prepare lesson plans, and to grade papers. Clubs and organi- zations found eighth hour an ideal time to meet. Club membership and participation increased as the prob- lems of evening meetings, transportation, and late hours were eliminated. Afternoon pep sessions al- lowed students to cheer as long as they wished with- out losing valuable class time. The additional courses, as well as the revised schedule, made it necessary for seven new teachers to be hired. These teachers and the 574 freshmen brought to AAHS not only unfamiliar faces but fresh, new ideas. The new courses added this year gave MHS students additional opportunities in learning. The girls in Miss Martha Miller ' s Office Practice class became adapt at operating office ma- chinery. Mr. Don Portolese challenged his Industrial Design class to design packages for light bulbs, facial tissues, and toothpaste. Miss Janet Eberle taught a writing course for sophomores. Ruth Salyer and Linnie Shriver learn to use a dictaphone in the new office practice class. The class gave students an opportunity to learn to operate office machinery and to use their knowledge by serving as secretaries and receptionists in business offices.
