ln Unique School Program
This year the Mount Gilead Schools instituted an unique
educational program for Senior Citizens. Any senior citizen
could enroll in numerous high school classes free of
charge. Senior citizens attended classes, completed as-
signments, took tests, and received grades just like their
younger classmates. Four local citizens completed the en-
tire school year's work. Bob Osborne enrolled in Algebra
and Spanish, Margaret Miley in Local History and Art,
Grace Lentz in Typing, and Doris West in bookkeeping.
Regular high school students and senior citizens both
found the program an enjoyable and rewarding learning

Mount Gilead's football team finished the season in fine
fashion with an overall record of 8 wins and 2 defeats. This
mark of 8 wins has only been obtained only by six other
previous Mount Gilead football teams. Unfortunately, both
of the lndian's losses came in league play which prevented
the team from capturing the MOC title. Mount Gilead fin-
ished in 5th place in the state computer playoffs and did
not qualify for post season action. The team's offensive
strength was led by eleven seniors and one junior. All MOC
selections went to Nathan Long, Jim Zwayer, and Scott
Casto. Players who received Honorable Mention were Rod

The Mount Gilead boys' basketball team went from last
place in the league last year to 12-2 and MOC champions

years for the Indians, and a very good way for the eight
seniors of the twelve-man squad to end their high school
basketball careers. Overall the Indians had an excellent
16-5 record. Highlights of a very exciting season included
a 50-48 home victory over previously unbeaten Northmor
which gave the Indians a share of 1st place in the league
race, and a 55-52 double overtime victory at Highland
which kept the Indians tied for 1st place. This was the
Indians first win at Highland in ten years. Later in the
season, a 64-56, victory at Northmor assured the Indians
of a tie for the league championship. The Indians clinched
the MOC title in their next game with a victory over Freder-
icktown. Mount Gilead finished the regular season ranked
21st in the Associated Press Class "AA" High School
Basketball Poll. The Indians were led by Rick Van Houten,
the team's leading scorer and most valuable playerg Na-
than Long, the team's best defensive playerg and Jim

Sisters by M. Charlotte Johnson and The Real In-
spector Hound by Tom Stoppard were presented by the
theater department on May 13 and 14. As a prelude to the
feature play The Real Inspector Hound, Sisters ex-
plores the levels of childhood and the loves and hates of an
older and younger sister. With each scene, the audience
notices a change in age and its accompanying change in
attitude. Sisters is humorous, yet touching in its portrayal
of sibling rivalry and growing up. In The Real Inspector
Hound, two critics, Moon and Birdboot, become involved
in a farcical who-dun-it as they innocently review a current
play. The actors, who are tired of these critics and their
unfair comments, entice the fault-finders onto the stage
with a ringing phone which no one answers. Once on stage
Birdboot and Moon plunge into the story of the beautiful
Lady Muldoon, the mysterious secret of her husband's
disappearance, and the revelation of the Real Inspector
Hound. The hilarious unraveling of events leave the critics
at the mercy of the actors.

Sixth Graders Enjoy Outdoor Camping
The outdoor education program at Lutheran Memorial
Camp is a favorite part of the year for sixth graders.
Students, teachers, and high school counselors spend
three days and two nights participating in a variety of
nature-related activities. This year's camp took place the
first week of October. Mild fall weather made the students'
stay at camp a delightful experience while they studied
stream ecology, orienteering, pioneering, and forest life.
Students watch camp director Fred Gliem prepare apples for
making apple butter.
Tired but happy campers prepare to return home. Boarding the
bus are Bronwyn Naysmith, Cheri Fteed, Malinda Chalfant, Brian
Stotts, Kristy Peterson, and counselor Kevin Wolford.
