High- lights of a unique year included Munster’s first senior prom, the first full varsity sports program, and the first graduation of a senior class. A bright new day began for Munster High when students entered their senior high facilities on the opening day of school in September. The newly ac- quired courses aimed at seniors meant a larger faculty and a more varied sched- ule. Special activities brought both ex- citement and adventure to the school year. June climaxed a year of “firsts” with the graduation of two hundred Munster students. The dawning year is one to remember — always. 2 construction on munster high complex is begun in ’ 66 4 completed facility becomes important part of munsters growing community 6 students are stimulated by academic atmosphere of munster high. 8 classroom and resource activities enhance personal understanding the most necessary ingredient of munster high school is people 12 . . . the genesis of social tradition Munster High in its first year as a full high school had to set up solid traditions. Special activities such as Loyalty Week, senior prom, plays, musical, and talent show gave the year flavor and interest. Finally the most meaningful occasion took place when the first senior class graduated in June, bringing a close to a year’s worth of student activities Dedication Game and Dance Climax Juniors “delivered ’em” Seniors “melted ’em” Sophomores “buried ’em” Loyalty Week began October 17-22. Monday was marked “Kick- OfT-Day”, when each class covered a wall with posters. Tuesday, “Red White Day”, found letter sweaters every where. On Wednesday, senior posters were given first place. On Thursday, students “stomped” the River Forest Ingots with oddly matched shoes. At Friday’s bonfire, a pep rally burned in effigy an 8-foot Ingot player. Saturday, the big dedication day, began at 12 o’clock with the first MHS parade. 1:30 was kick-off for the game. At half-time Yvonne Sat- terblom was crowned queen, while Lorrie Rich and Kathy Brown served as senior princesses, Nyla Guess, junior princess, and Gail Burke, sophomore princess. The junior’s float was awarded first place. After victory over the Ingots, the dance held that night proved a fitting cli- max to a historical week. The “crowning touch”: Student Council Vice President, Ed Jankura, crowns surprised queen, senior Yvonne Satterblomat half-time. 16 Loyalty Week Activities Tense! Tough!— Team!

Talent Shows at MHS The annual talent show, presented by the Senior High Student Council on March 8, was a smashing success. Eleven student acts were presented, giving the audience a large variety of talent ranging from folk singing by the Wayfarers to a skit satirizing a typical day at MHS. Other acts included solos by Lynda Geller, Larry Carlson, and Wendy Blohm, vocal duets by Jerry and Jill, and one by Phil Lengyel and Karl Linden, songs from the bands the Epics and the Coulis Brothers, magic tricks by Greg Pearson and Jim Smith, and a skit reminiscent of their high school years presented by Mike Siebielic, Sandy Sand, John Krause, and Gloria Kostka. Mike and Sandy recreate a second childhood. Ball State Symphony Visits On April 7, the Ball State Symphony Orchestra gave a concert in the new auditorium. This was the first program ever to be held in our auditorium. Mr. Michael Conyers, our string instructor, who previously played with the Ball State Symphony Orchestra, arranged for this engagement. Mr. Leedham, conductor, was assisted by Mr. Wittig, a guest conductor. The symphony opened the program with “America.” Other selections included the “Overture Allegro” by Couperin — Milhaud, and the soundtrack from “The Sound of Music.” The concluding num- ber played by the orchestra was Shosta- kovich’s Symphony No. 5. A portrait of concentration . “What’s next?” Even performers seldom know! Ball State Orchestra Conductor, Mr. Leedham, guides his musicians through an intense movement. Elegantly dressed Ball Staters gave a memorable performance. The sound of strings enhances the “Sound of Music”. 19 “Inherit the Wind” Proves A When Matthew Harrison Brady arrives in Hillsboro, the whole town turns out to meet their savior. Brady thanks them saying, “You have decked out your city beautifully! Mrs. Brady and I are delighted to be here to defend what is most precious in our hearts: the Living Truth of the Scriptures!” “Rache — I’m free!” “I know Bert — let’s take the 5:13 train out, I want to celebrate!” (D. Good, V. Astolas). “So you, Matthew Harrison Brady, through oratory, legislation, or whatever, pass along God’s word to man. Is that it?” “Nps no!” (G. Eppler, P. Lengyel, J. Gubitz, K. Linden). 20 Success for the Drama Department I( takes a long time to make up a cast of 50. “H’ard Blair, my ancestors was not worms! Not Here, Karen Kirineic gets her share of the torture. blobs of jelly neither!” “We used to be good Friends once. What hap- pened? Why have you moved so far from me?” Drummond replies, “All motion is relative.” After Drummond has cross-examined Mr. Brady. Matt finds comfort in his wife; “They’re laughing at me, mother.” “No they’re not, no they’re not.” The curtain arose on April 21-22 to a vibrant performance of “Inherit the Wind”. Ths success of the production can be claimed thru the efforts of Miss Ann Burgdorf, dramatics director, assisted by Miss Dorothy Christoff and student director, Sara Gilman. The plot revolved around Bert Cates, played by Dick Good a biology in- structor on trial for teaching the theory of evolution in the public schools of Tennessee. The colliding lawyers, Ma- thew Harrison Brady and Henry Drummond were played by Karl Linden and Phil Lengyel, respectively. “The Wizard of Oz” was also pre- sented with Cindy Blackmun portraying Dorothy and Pat Lavery as her dog Toto. The cowardly lion was enacted by Jeff Gubitz with Dick Good as the heartless Tinman and Mike Siebielec playing the part of Scarecrow. Linda Anderson portrayed the wicked witch of the North and P atti Finley was Glinda, the good witch. Miss Ann Burgdorf, director, and Miss Dorothy Christoff made the play a success. At a revival meeting, Bert Cates is condemned by Rev. Brown; “Let him feel the terror of the sword! Let his soul writhe in anguish and damnation.” “Cynical? That’s my fascination. I do hateful things for which people love me and lovable things for which they hate me, " says Horn- beck. A Greatly Transformed Commons Blossoming flowers, chirping birds, and sparkling ponds all contributed to the mystical magic of “Moonlight and Roses”, the first Junior-Senior Prom for Munster High School. Under the direction of Ron Gyure, junior class president, committees worked tediously to transform the school commons area into an old fashioned garden. Upon entering the door, couples found themselves amidst a garden of roses. The picturesque scenery along the walls was dimly lit, allowing for a romantic atmosphere under the glittering stars. “I could have danced all night” was the feeling of many as they waltzed around the refreshing pools, occasionally pausing by the glimmering water wheel or the dreamy wishing well where every wish came true. The Johnny Nowlan orchestra coin- cided with the decorations by adding soft music to the beauty. On sweetheart trees hung hearts with each couples’ names, which were taken as a keepsake to add to the cherished memories of the fantasy land of roses.

Massa). Julie (C. Blackmun), and Carrie (L. Low). Circus performers, three boys at play, and the Snow family were featured in Louise’s ballet. Susan Emerson as Louise and Dale Roades as the Car- nival Man gave the sequence great meaning. The efforts of many went into the presentation of “Carousel”. Students and Adults The 1967 musical, Rodgers’ and Hammerstein’s “Carousel”, under the direction of Mr. Richard Holmberg, has left an unforgettable mark in the history of our school and community. Mr. Gene Fort acted as technical director, and Mrs. Ronald Corson as choreographer. Many students as well as faculty members spent long hours preparing to make “Carousel” a big success. Included in the cast of principles were Cindy Blackmun as Julie Jordan, Dick Massa as Billy Bigelow, Leslie Low as Carrie Pepperidge, and Karl Linden as Enoch Snow. Other roles por- trayed were Mrs. Mullin by Randy Levin, Jigger Craigin by John Krause, and Nettie Fowler by Nancy Belshaw. Dale Roadcs was student direc- tor assisted by Tammy Ashby, and Ray Barton served as stage manager with assistance from Cyd- ney Rundle. Student Assistant to Mrs. Corson was Carol-rae Kraus. Members of the Gary Sym- phony Orchestra and the Munster Adult and High School Bands were featured in the “Carousel” Orchestra organized by Mr. L. Paul Brown, Jr. Boy’s Chorus for “Blow High. Blow Low” members are R. Baudino. M. Banjura, C. Gordon. D. Massa, J. Keene, R. Maroe, J. Horan. J. Buhler, P. Lavery, C. Livingston, R. Carlson, T. Molnar. J. Keeler, R. Gyure, and D. Roades. K. Vieweg and J. Krause were feature in a dance. Munster High’s First Commencement Indiana Senator Birch Bayh addressed the Class of 67, reminding them of a challenge waiting to be met . Long march to seat is near end for Diane VanStright. June 8, 1967 was truly a night to remember for 184 seniors of Munster High School. Seniors assembled in the fieldhouse to don caps and gowns in anticipation of the last hour of their high school years. Commencement began with the proud processional of the soon-to-be graduates. The senior concert choir, directed by Richard Holmberg, gave their last per- formance singing two selections, one of which posed a challenge to the seniors with “The Impossible Dream”. Mr. Frank Hammond, Superintendant, ad- dressed the audience and extended special congratulations to the first grad- uates of Munster High School, as the “vanguards of ambition and tradition”. Following an introduction by Dr. Masse, the Commencement Address was given by Senator Birch Bayh. As Mr. Speel- man, senior class sponsor, presented the class of 67, and Mr. Martin Kraegel, school board president, bestowed dip- lomas, the meaning and purpose of the diploma was deeply felt throughout the auditorium. 184 seniors of Munster High School, its first graduating class, walked out of the high school audi- torium on the night of June 8 to look back and look ahead simultaneously. For all it was an end; for all it was a beginning. From the past — memories; for the future — challenges. Whoever they are, whatever they do, the first graduates of Munster High will never be forgotten. All in place for the processional, soon-to-be grads wait for start of “Pomp and Circumstance”.

Mr. Martin Kraegel and Dr. Berard Masse present diploma to Cindy Stone. 27 Superintendant of Munster Schools, Mr. Frank Hammond, spoke at Commencement Exercises. Senior girls had to be sure they looked their best for graduation ceremony. Individual members of graduating class observe fellow students receiving diplomas. . . . the birth of true knowledge September ’66, through June ’67, Munster High students went to school. This does not only mean attending dances and football games, but most important, it means they gave forty hours a week to learning. To learn about people and places of the world, about the many laws of nature, and about how to later make a living, Munster teens took varied courses for an all-around education academics Berta Peterson seems to have second thoughts as to whether or not to go through with a German report. It is a requirement, however, so she must forge on, like it or not! Germany will he the home of these MHS students the summer of ’67. Sue MacDonald and Virginia Greene (FRONT) and Sara Gilman, Howard Silverman, and Helen Baker are the lucky ambassador ' s. Once the speech is underway things aren’t really so bad! Public speaking is hard enough without having to do it in a foreign language. World Is Seen Through Mr. Noack, German teacher, reviews the assignment with his German class. Language The Senior High Language Department was enlarged to include: Miss Awe, Spanish; Miss Graly, Spanish; Mrs. McIntyre, Latin; Miss Lewis, German; and Mr. Noack, German. The new language lab was completed allowing students another opportunity to develop speaking skills, pronunciation, and grammar. Also this year was our Language Inter- com System, which will allow classes to hear tapes, music, and records in their classrooms. Three Juniors; Helen Baker, Sara Gil- man, Suzanne Macdonald, and two sopho- mores; Virginia Greene, and Howard Silverman will spend nine weeks in Krefeld, Germany this summer. Another first for MHS this year was the attendance of the six week summer session at the Technical Institute of Monterey, Mexico. Miss Awe and five Spanish students: Marcia Boldt, Bill Coe, Linda Cusik, Betsie Lanman, and Andi Lipner learned a variety of things, from grammar to songs and dances. This was the first year Munster High School has offered Spanish and Latin on a third year level. Linda Geller brings a problem in Spanish to Miss Awe, Spanish teacher. Formulation of original ideas is based on exposure to other men’s thoughts. Literature opens the door to such thoughts for Dave Pope. English Mr. Smith conducts sophomore lecture. Miss Judith Dust, junior student-teacher, adjusts easily to seminar situations. Her versatility lends ease to dis- cussion. b t 32 Teachers are sometimes puzzled by students. Miss Burgdorf contemplates a predicament presented her by her drama class. Mark Hill reflects on Macbeth’s savage purpose in preparation for an English exam. Students Probe Concepts Jim Landon lends an attentive ear to a fellow student’s speech presentation. Course possibilities for seniors this year were Modern Literature, World Literature, and Advanced Placement. Modern Literature studies included Salinger’s Nine Short Stories, Old Man and the Sea, The Ugly American, and Raisin in the Sun, including the writ- ing of their autobiographies. Seniors studied works from France, Italy, Spain, Russia, Scandanavia, and the Orient, with highlights of the year including interpretive readings of The Master Builder and Enemy of the People in lecture, plus a term paper. Another division of Senior English was Advanced Placement taught by Mrs. Ruth Braesmele. The primary objectives of AP English were “to read works of literary merit and to consider ideas which arise from them”. Units of study contained selections by Con- rad, Shakespeare, Hemingway, Faulk- ner, Greene, Albee, Warren, Hardy, and Chekov. Mrs. Helen Engstrom and Miss Bar- bara Sichak led the Class of ’68 through units of study in American and English literature, highlighted by The Scarlet Letter, Our Town, and To Kill A Mockingbird, plus units on short stories and expository writing. ’69ers studied poems, short stories, and read a wide range of novels in- cluding Silas Marner, Inherit the Wind, A Tale of Two Cities, and The In- visible Man, taught by Miss Ann Burgdorf and Mr. Richard Smith. Writing themes is like the squeezing of water from stones. Mike Hand searches for the right words to ex- press himself during a seminar. In-class-themes are Mrs. Brasaemle’s favorite exercise. Mr. Corson notes issues on the overhead during the course of an economics lecture. He has adapted swiftly to team teaching during his first year at MHS. Man and His World Examined by Visual and listening aids provide tools for social studies. Teachers select materials to augment class studies. Mr. Ronald Corson and Mr. Edwin Burkhardt taught senior economics, with units on capitalism, production, labor, money, and banking. The Class of ’67 also had a semester of American government, in which they compared governments and political philosophies, the Bill of Rights, and the three branches of the United States Govern- ment. “Gaining an appreciation and under- standing of the forces and background that have shaped the society we live in today are the main objectives of American history,” according to in- structors Mr. Gene Fort and Miss Pflasterer. Juniors began the year with the founding of the colonies and prog- ressed through the administration of Lyndon Johnson. World history and world geography taught by Mr. Donald Kernaghan, were offered to freshmen through sen- iors. The basic aim of these courses was gaining an understanding of what history and geography involve. 34 Team meetings occur frequently at 1HS. Mr. Fort and Mr. Kernaghan discuss their material presentation. Social Studies Classes Student at left contemplates an extended read- The government seminar above is conducted in- ing.

Advanced physics and chemistry courses were demonstrate proper lab technique which all available to seniors this year. Two members of should know, this class, Jim Rozzos and Tom Dalfonso, In the ’66-’67 year, the junior and senior high school science departments moved into new laboratories, with new lab facilities for eighty students at one time. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors studied the Chem Study chemistry course, instructed by Mr. Rose, in- cluding nearly 30 experiments, in which students grasped a working knowledge of laboratory procedure in addition to fundamental and more ad- vanced chemistry. The junior and senior physics stu- dents, did over forty experiments, and many often “magical” demonstrations, under the supervision of Mr. Jim Jen- nings. Advanced Science, initiated this year for seniors, instructed by Mr. Jennings, consisted of extensive laboratory work, individual study, and directed read- ings. Guidance is often needed during chemistry labs and Mr. Rose is always around to give advice. 36 Chemistry, and Physics. This is how you hatch an egg? Gayle Klein, Kathy Papakosmas, Donna Anderson, and Peggy Amos unfold mysteries of life. MHS students learn the laws of the universe in Mr. Jenning’s physics classes. One result of team teaching is the small group seminar where the student can learn more about biology, with the help of Mr. Lazar. When will it end? . . Students wade through multitudinous problems. Computer Science Important Addition Mr. Smith is always ready and willing to help. “I can’t get no satisfaction!” What is it??? Mr. Lindquist introduces the new Mr. Smith “plotting” against students. Community effort is sometimes required to solve those problems whose answers seem to be nonexistent. Paula Parrish types programs for computer in- put. to Math Department computer to his captivated UICSM students. Mathematics is the last of the “Three R’s”, but by no means is the least. For six years, Munster students have met the challenge the “New Math” presents. In the senior high, studies in this field encompassed geometry, advanced algebra, modern analysis, and UICSM (University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics)-. Mr. Lloyd Lind- quist is the head of the UICSM division. Seniors completed UICSM the first semester and studied analytic geometry with an introduction to cal- culus the remainder of the year. In- structors include Miss Dorothy Christ- off, Lloyd Lindquist, A1 Smith, and Rex Smolek. Computer math was added to the second semester. The class began at 7:15 A.M., but despite the early hour, over 100 students appeared for in- struction. The purpose of the course was to learn how material is pro- grammed for computers. With such knowledge at their com- mand, Munster High Students realize the integral part mathematics plays in our school curriculum. Tom Dixon reviews problem carefully. 39 Munster Invades Lyric Opera Karl Linden contemplates his music theory composition. For a better concept of the forms of music and a general background in music history, students enthusiastically enrolled in the Music Appreciation class conducted by Mr. Richard Holm- berg. Part of the course of study included opera and a visit to the Civic Opera House to see Verdi’s, La Traviata. Also as part of the studies of the symphony and concertos, the class saw Van Cliburn and the Chicago Sym- phony Orchestra at Orchestra Hall. During the second semester, stu- dents sought an understanding of basic harmony structures by attending Mr. Holmberg’s Music Theory class. The course included the study of intervals, chords, 4-part harmony, and ear training to develop a more acute sense of pitch. Mr. Holmberg finds his music theory students challenged by the rules of harmony. 40 Art Paints a New Picture Student teacher supervises collage constructure. Dan Fundyck enhances freehand sketch with paints. Under the direction of Mrs. Stout and Miss Dunn, the art department provided experience in the seven major art areas — drawing, painting, sculptor, print-making, weaving, jewelry, and ceramics. These areas serve as the framework for study on all levels. As a student progresses from one level to the next, his study becomes more intensi- fied. The projects that the art students made this year varied from entries in the Directory Art Contest to slab pots and the art III student’s one-man show in the spring. The art department demonstrated its talents to the school in the form of periodical exhibits. 41 Domestic and Technical Skills HOME MANAGEMENT Home Management has become an expanding department at Munster High School. Home management I students studied social relations, food and nutri- tion, grooming, and clothing. Second year students dealt with money manage- ment, budgeting, fiber identification, clothing construction, and food experi- mentation. Girls in Home Management III were kept occupied with tailoring, home management, and house planning and furnishing. Next year a 4th year of Home Management will be added to the department. Oh, my! A cameraman! To create, one must be very patient. Home Management teacher, Mrs. Emma Brankle, gives senior Justine Strudas valuable aid with her sewing. Classes for all girls were held in Junior High area. Acquired by Active Students INDUSTRIAL ARTS The completion of the new Munster High School provided the Industrial Arts Department with the opportunity to add needed space and new equip- ment to their facilities. Under the supervision and guidance of Mr. R. Hunt and Mr. W. Engstrom, boys in grades se ven through twelve are trained in a variety of shop skills. The courses offered include drafting, electronics, power mechanics, graphic- arts and crafts, and general shop, with special emphasis placed on safety. Industrial Arts, informally known as shop, furnishes an excellent chance for boys to master the arts of in- dustry and become familiar with voca- tional opportunities of the future. Roman Kiszenia carefully uses industrial machinery. Instructor Mr. Warren Engstrom makes sure department’s machinery is in good condition and works well. 43 Varied Business Courses Offered Jill Molnar, Diane Olson, Jane Morman, Rosiland Kelly, and Donna Hinkle are all busy using the new electric typewriters in the business rooms. To Ready Students for Careers Eight business courses offered this year were, general business, business math, first and second year typing, first and second year shorthand, office practice, and bookkeeping, taught by Mr. Brinson, Miss Rawson, and Mr. Stone. With the opening of the new school, the business department added to its facilities, twenty electric typewriters, three adding machines, and two cal- culators, three transcription machines, a telotype, and a “Multi-Channel dicta- tion unit.” Even teachers have to type sometimes! Mr. Brinson shows fine art of business to Lorrie Rich. Practice makes perfect, or so Sue Emerson hopes. Munster High School Students Volleyball just out of the reach of jump. Let’s go with those jumping jacks girls! 1 , 2 , 3, 4 . . . A new program was organized un- der the leadership of Mr. John Friend, director of the athletic department. The Curaton Program’s main ob- jective is to do the most it can for the majority of the students in the way of endurance and all-around physical fitness. Mr. Niksic and Mr. Rosenau moti- vated the boys to achieve the highest level by awarding different colored trunks as each fitness test was passed. Each boy began with white shorts and 46 Strive for Physical Fitness graduated to red, blue, and the gold shorts. Mrs. Shakes stressed co-ordination and fine skills in the girls program. The students acquired skills in basket- ball, volleyball, and modern dance. The swimming program began in May with the objective to teach each student the basics of swimming and life saving. Student leaders assisted the in- structors by checking showers, taking roll and general supervision. Dick Massa and Mr. Ream keep watchful eye on classes. Mr. John Friend, MHS athletic director, checks plans for weeks activities. Basketball is the game of the hour for Boy’s P.E. 47 Summer School and Guidance Round Cramped quarters of Lanier Gym enclose summer session of girl’s Physical Education.

Serving as a place of refuge for upperclassmen with numerous person- al, as well as academic problems, is the office of Mr. Robert Speelman, head counselor. Here Mr. Speelman works individually with each student to help them select the college and vocation suited to them. The newest addition to the guidance staff is Mr. Strong, the sophomore counselor, who helps students iron out their problems in high school and helps them plan their curriculum. Under the expert assistance of Mrs. Talty, junior high school students are orientated to high school life. Mr. Speelman’s duties become international as he aids Tina Styring in planning her senior curriculum during her visit from Sweden. Guidance department is not male dominated. Junior high girls find counterpart in Mrs. Talty. Newly added to guidance staff, Mr. Strong di- vides time between junior and senior high stu- dents. ... the emergence of team effort Munster High Mustangs have made the 1 966-67 school year one to remem- ber. Coached by well-trained, interes- ted men, our Mustangs learned the rules of the game, the way to play, and how to practice the necessary sports- manship. The importance of team effort as well as individual initiative was accented. The coaches, the players, and the team supporters have made this year a real success in the field of . . athletics Munster Supremely Proud of Our MUSTANI MISTANGS 4 MUSTANGS MUSTANGS 4 MUSTANGS MUSTANGS ‘ A f v }} MUSTANGS Munster Mustangs ’66-67.

Jim Landon ardently cheers our team on to another victory. The Mustang football squad com- piled an 8 — 2 record scoring 179 points to their opponents’ total of 89. Everything done by a Mustang player was a record this year and since this was the first season of var- sity play, records were broken, tied, and set every time the Red White hit the gridiron. The 1966 schedule was an insight into the spirit MHS will develop in the years to come. The Mustang coaching staff, headed by Mr. John Friend, related a vital spirit to the boys out for football. Mr. Richard Hunt, assistant coach, also is a fine example of the proper spirit needed and work required to instill in boys true desire and a love for the game. Mr. James Jennings also served as assistant coach working with the ends. Mr. Michael Niksic, a veteran of the Munster staff, is a constant example,, especially to the offensive backs, of what a player really is. Line coach, Mr. Alex Bochnowski, Mr. Ed Robertson, and Mr. James Stone round-out excellent quality of coaches and light the lamp for bigger and better football squads to come. Jeff Horan and Derek Paul led the Mustang team leadership as captains for the ’66 season. The play of Mike Edwards, Steve Merten, Pete Forsythe, Elden Hass, Dick Massa, John Lind- strom, John Pavlovich, George Baker, Mike Niksic, and Ross Maroe displayed the true mark of a real team and real team effort.

Wrestling Half Nelson hold gets the better of Pete Reinstein’s sporting foe. The Mustang grapplers opened this year with our first varsity team. Under the coaching of Mr. Buchnowski, the team fought to a well-earned 3 — 8 record. The varsity team consisted of Bill Eitzen in the 95 lb. class, Stan Franczek and Jim Barger at 103, and Brian Bracco at 112. Joe Fuss wrestled at 120 lbs., and Mark Thomas com- peted in the 127 lb. class, while Dave Crockett was at 133 lbs. Steve Nelson wrestled at 138 lbs., Tod Demakos at 145 lbs, and Fred Malo at 154 lbs. Rounding out the varsity squad, Derek Paul wrestled at 165 lbs., Pete Rein- stein at 180 lbs., and Dick Massa and Glen Wyant in the heavyweight divi- sion. Our grapplers lost the opening match to a Highland team. We then lost to River Forest, before defeating Hobart for the Mustang first victory. Meeting the Griffith team, the Mustangs wrestled in top form only to lose this match. Losses to Merrilville, Hobart, and Lew Wallace followed. Calumet and Lowell also defeated our Mustangs. In a highlight of the season we downed Whiting in a sensational 58 — 0 shut-out. We also defeated Liberty Township in a well-earned victory. The grapplers made a respectable showing in the sectional, with Derek Paul, Pete Reinstein, and Brian Brac- co winning their first match. Through Coach Buchnowski’s leadership, the experience gained this year, and the youth of the team, Mustang grapplers can develop into a strong team in the future. 56 Tennis Team Triumphs Too! Behind the coaching of Mr. Lind- quist, Munster High’s tennis team rolled to a superb 8 — 2 season. Led by seniors Mike Stimak, Mike Salisbury, and Pete Reinstein in single competi- tion, and the fine doubles play of Pete Davis, Bill Guber, Dave Lawson, and Craig Gordon, the team streaked to three consecutive victories at the onset of the season. Opening against Crown Point, the Netmen met little resistance, blanking Crown Point 5 — 0 back-to-back matches. Meeting a tough Highland team, M.H.S. prevailed, taking the match 4 — 1. M.H.S. determination marked this win as one of the high points of the season. This year’s biggest match pitted M.H.S. against Hammond High, both undefeated prior to the match. Al- though every match was not deter- mined until the final point, M.H.S. was defeated 5 — 0. The netmen proved their ability by defeating a rugged Griffith squad, 5 — 0, and River Forest, 5 — 0. We closed out the season defeating Griffith, 3 — 2, Highland 4 — 1, and Valparaiso team in the last match of the season, 4 — 1. Thus the M.H.S. netmen finished the season with a fine 8 — 2 record, establishing themselves as one of the best teams in the area. General consensus indicates that sen- ior Mike Stimak was the most valuable player. After the departure of seniors Pete Reinstein, Mike Salisbury, Craig Gordon, and Dave Lawson, varsity starters juniors Bill Guber, and Pete Davis, as well as juniors Dave Forsythe, Joe Fuss, Tom Dillon, Sophomores, Tom Spero, Jim Patterson, Tom Luerr- son and Gus Hagberg, the M.H.S. tennis team is well stocked. fetj Varsity Squad: Dave Lawson, Mike Stimac, Peter Davis, Peter Reinstein, Tom Dillon, Mike Salis- bury, Craig Gordon, Dave Forsythe.

Defeated by Lake Central 56 — 54 that evening, we found revenge two weeks later by beating the Indians 58 — 43. 58 Season in New Fieldhouse This year saw Mustang basketball at its best. The Mustangs completed a season that saw Bob Wetnight set records in scoring and rebounding, Bob Stout in free throw percentage, George Baker in personal fouls, a nine game win streak, and sectional victories. All this added up to a 16 and 7 record. In the opener against Highland, the Mustangs lost, 75 — 56, but Coach Dick Hunt, with the assistance of Mr. Ed Robertson, led the team to victories over Washington TWP. and Clark. Mustangs were defeated, though, by Hebron, 54 — 53. We stomped on and won a rematch with Lowell, 60 — 53, in the first game of the Lake Central Holiday Tourney. In the second half of the season the Mustangs reeled off nine straight wins, but in the final season game they went down to Boone Grove, 67 — 65. In the sectionals, the Mustangs beat Highland, 72 — 59, and Morton, 72 — 62, to go into the finals against Ham- mond Tech. The Mustangs played valiantly in the final game, but went down to Tech, 88 — 68. Varsity squad members include sophomores Bob Stout, Gus Hagberg, Ross Maroe, Ron Baudino, and Glen Scolnik, junior Mike Edwards, and seniors Bob Wetnight, George Baker, Jeff Horan, Pete Forsythe, and John Bognar.

Paced by senior Jim Budarz and junior Mike McComas, the harriers finished with 4 wins and 5 losses. Highlights of the season were the MHS victories over Hammond Clark and Highland. Though losing to Lake Central, senior Jim Budarz came in first place and broke the school’s x- country record with a 9:56 clocking. Munster’s four major award winners were Jim Budarz, Mike Mc- Comas, Jeff Brager, and Pete Smith. In order to receive this, the harrier had to place ninth or better in all meets. Two trophies were presented at the fall sport banquet. The first was the “PHD” award, that went to junior Dave Wickland for his “Pride, Hustle, and Desire”. The second was the Munster High School’s Most Valuable Cross-Country Runner” award, given to Jim Budarz who came in first place in five out of nine meets. Munster High has great potential for the future. With only two seniors leaving the squad, Mike McComas, Pete Smith, Larry Carlson, Dave Clark, Dave W ' ickland, Bill Baker, and Dean White will be top prospects to lead the harriers to a well over .500 mark next year. f Larry Carlson and Charles Niementowski run to get in good physical condition for long dis- tances. 62 1967 Mustangs afloat (FRONT, left to right) Brad Stone, Mike Miller, Jeff Kidder, Craig Gordon, (BACK) Coach Gordon Rosenau, Jeff Soren- Bill Pansing, Peter Moran, Dick Lautz.

Girls Lead Fans Under the leadership of Captain Sandy Sutter, with the spirit of Kathy Brown, Sue Emerson, Nyla Guess, Janet Navta, and Donna Hinkle, the Mustang football and basketball squads were cheered on to numerous victories and successful seasons. These girls, as varsity cheerleaders, were behind the crowds at all the Mustang contests, and through their wonderful display of spirit and leadership our teams and fans alike were able to say in the 1966- 1967 campaigns that “We’re Proud of our school. We’re proud of our cheer- leaders!” Sub-varsity cheerleaders Pam Cooper, Gail Burke, Patti Speelman, and Debby Sutter were integral parts of Mustang B-team success in 1966- 1967. Munster Mustangs, we want our Mustangs! Hey you Mustangs, we’ve really got to fight! B-team cheerleaders, Patti Speelman, Gail Burke, Debby Sutter, and Pam Cooper raise Mustangs voices, loud and clear. Cindermen Initiate New Track Larry Johnson pours it on as he gains on his opponent in track meet. Munster High’s trackmen, coached by Mr. James Stone, finished the indoor track season with a very respectable record. The Mustangs finished with a 6 — 2 dual meet mark and a second place finish in the First Annual Munster Re- lays. The Mustangs six dual meet victories were over Hammond Tech 52 — 39, He- bron 49 — 44, Whiting 68 — 15, River Forest 51 — 40, Gary Edison 68 — 18 and 58—33. Going in to the outdoor season, Coach Stone’s crew began with a 91 — 27 lash- ing of East Gary. They were beat by River Forest’s 4 point margin. In the Andrean Relays Munster placed 6th in the red division. Sprinter Bob Nowak’s 10.1 in the 100 yd. dash h ighlighted the Mustang’s showing. The Mustangs finished third in the Chesterton Relays with 37 points and a 52 — 48 victory over Gary Horace Mann. Coach Stone added, “that he was very pleased with the performances of his track team and hopes for a better season next year. Track: (left to right) FIRST ROW: D. Crockett, L. Carlson, J.

Wins over Clark, Lib erty Township, and Tech proved the golf team had what it takes to succeed. Finishing the season with a victory over Calumet, the team placed tenth in the area golf sectionals. 66 MHS ’67 Spring Sports Activities BASEBALL The Munster baseball team opened its first full season of varsity competition on April 3, 1967, playing Gary Wirt in Gary. Up against some excellent pitch- ing, Munster lost 6 — 1. Bad weather and inexperience caused the results of the first game, which proved to be the pattern for the greater part of the season. John Bognar, senior southpaw, carried the bulk of the pitching load, turning in good performances against Wirt, Griffith, Whiting, E. C. Washington, East Gary, and Lake Central. The Mustangs, however, showed pro- mise during the second half of the sea- son. After warm weather became a real- ity, Munster’s team beat Lowell 10 — 4, East Gary 3 — 0, and Lake Central 2 — 0. The Mustangs lost by only one or two runs to E. C. Washington, 4 — 3, Grif- fith, 6 — 5, Bishop Noll, 13 — 12, and Merriville, 10 — 8. In their first state tournament in baseball, the Mustangs lost to Bishop Noll in their first game of the sectional. In seventeen games, the Mustangs scored an average of five runs per game. Junior Mike Edwards and sophomores Bob Stout and Gus Hag- berg supplied the offensive power. Coach Niksic and Mike McComas confer on bat- ting tactics.

Intramurals and Adult Recreation 68 id to MHS Athletic Program The Munster High School Field- house was put to good use this year by virtue of extra-curricular programs. Besides the usual physical education classes and sports practice sessions, our fieldhouse housed Saturday Intra- mural programs, adult recreation on Monday and Wednesday nights, and high school student’s recreation on Thursday nights. A homeroom basket- ball tournament was held also. The fieldhouse has become an important part of Munster life. Rope climbing is an art which only a few can accomplish. The goal is the roof of the fieldhouse. Students get extra practice at volleyball during Saturday Intramural sessions. Speaking of blank expressions!

It is hoped that a harmonious relation- ship between the student body, the ad- ministration, and the community will be achieved through this school pride. Under the leadership of Gloria Kost- ka — pres., Ed Jankura — v. pres., Carol- rae Kraus — secretary, and Yvonne Sat- terblom — treasurer, the organization be- gan the year with a tea in honor of the new teachers, a leadership workshop, and money raising projects. After game sock hops were initiated by the council, and the annual college luncheon and the talent show were renewed. The Student Council of ’66-’67 used Dedication as its key word in our most memorable Dedication Week which consisted of class competition for post- ers and floats, a bonfire, a parade, recognition of school board and booster club, crowning of a queen, and a dance. This year has marked the dedication of tradition for Munster High and the Council has provided the essential lead- ership for such an endeavor. Advisor Gene Fort, Treas. Yvonne Satterblom, Pres.

All home basketball games in the new fieldhouse were given a special touch as the Munster High Pep Band played the school song and half-time music. 78 First Sight-Reading Contest Approximately seventy students par- ticipated in the 1966-1967 Marching, Pep, and Concert bands, conducted by Mr. L. Paul Brown, Jr. Mustang’s first marching band began fullscale rehears- als in the fall in Community Park. The band made its first public appear- ance at Purdue’s Ross-Ade stadium for Indiana High School Band Day. The band also performed at the football field dedication. During the basketball season, the pep bands performed at several home games. Half-time shows were performed by the pep bands and the majorette corp. The concert band became active at the conclusion of the marching season. The concert band performed at three concerts, in December, April, and May. In addition, on April 15, the band traveled to New Haven for the state band and vocal contest to achieve a rating of excellent. Molding the pep band into a single unit with his baton, Mr. Brown combines basketball and music. Striding across the field, Munster High’s first marching unit expressed in music the excitement of dedica- tion day. With the formation of an ‘M’ the crowds acclaimed their precision feats. 79 MHS Choir Groups Excel in The senior choir gives their last performance. (FRONT, left to right) J. Molnar, J. Rittman, S.

Under the direction of Mr. Richard Holmberg, the concert choir sang for the Indiana State Teach- ers Association convention in the fall, and joined the other two choirs in the presentation of a Christmas and a spring concert. This year the three choirs went to New Haven, Ind., for the state choir contest. The Glee Club achieved a rating of I, the a cappella choir a rating of II, and the concert choir a rating of I. The choirs also participated in com- mencement activities. The a cappella choir sang for the baccalaureate service. As the culmination of four years of sing- ing together, the concert choir gave their last performance at their graduation. In an effort to teach a song to a choir, Mr. Holmberg pounds out voice parts. The Sophomore- Junior Choir received an ‘excellent’ rating at the state contest. (FRONT, left to right) J. Blieden, L.

Ensembles Sing Their Way to State The fine performances given by the Girls Sextet are attributed to the talents of Linda Berey, Randy Levin, Debby Dixon, Donna Sitler, Leslie Low, Kathy Viewig, and accompanist Maureen O’Connor. Jerry Livingston and Jill Molnar made their tele- vision debut on “It’s Academic” in April. The Madrigal Singers including Debby Dixon, Mike Hand, Randy Roller, Susan Greene, Linda Werskey, Mike Soloman, Dale Roades, and Jill Molnar, Raymond Barton, Cydney Rundle, Scott Arrowsmith, Cindy Stewart, Karl Linden, and Teri Eschenbach sang the story of one “Matona, Lovely Maiden.” “The Testament of Freedom” proved a testament of talent for the Boys Ensemble with Dale Roades, Scott Arrowsmith, John Krause, Ray Barton, Ron Gyure, Mike Soloman, Dave Pope, Recognition Those students with a great desire to sing found six ensembles to supplement their participation in the choirs. In addition to the established ensembles including the Boys Ensemble, the Girls Ensemble, and the Girls Sextet, Mr. Holberg, the director, formed three new groups, Madrigal Singers, the Boys Quartet, and the Mixed Ensemble. The six ensembles performed at the Christmas and spring concerts, and also at the Northern Indiana School Band, Orchestra, and Vocal, Association con- test at Butler University in India- napolis. The Boys Ensemble, the Girls Ensemble, and the Girls Sextet all re- ceived ratings of I, and the Madrigal Singers, the Mixed Ensemble, and the Boys Quartet received ratings of II. Because many of the participants are seniors, the establishment of many new ensembles is forcasted for next year. The Mixed Ensemble of Jerry Livingston, Sandy Sands, John Krause. Jill Monar, and Mike Hand sang an inspired “Amen.” “Silver Children” brought success and a superior rating in the state music contest to the Girls Ensemble including Jill Molnar, Cindy Blackmun, Toni Karas, Gayle Yahnke, Janet Navta, Chris Peterson, Linda W ' erskey (accompanist), Yvonne Satterblom, Sandy Sands, and Tammy Ashby. f • f ' Scott Arrowsmith, John Krause, Jerry Livingston, and Mike Hand of the Boys Quartet made “Lida Rose bloom.

Speech and Debate Win Honors Expanding contentions, debater Jim Betz sways audience to affirmative point of view scoring points for team. “Resolved: The foreign aid policy of the United States shall be limited to non-military assistance” was the debate topic. Varsity debaters were: Jim Betz, Debbie Dixon, Susan Greene, Ed Kraus, Nancy Levenberg, and Yvonne Satterblom. Larry Al- port, Cindy Lloyd, Kathy Rosenwin- kel, James Rozzos, Pat Thompson, and Marie Valko were members of the sub-varsity team. A1 Brinson coached the debaters to a record thirty wins and twenty losses and to a tie in the finals of Sectionals for alternate. Forensic activity proved fruitful in 1966-67. The speech team won four trophies from meets: fourth place at Hammond, third at Hobart, two first place trophies from Section- als and the Calumet Forensic League Championship. Sectionals and Regionals were March 11 and March 18 respectively. Four MHS Speakers, Sara Gilman, Jeff Gubitz, Carol Kraus, and Phil Lengyel went on to State Finals.

Second Season for Dramatists Munster’s Chapter of the National Thespian Society (Troupe 2861), Drama Club, Drama Workshop, and Drama class revolve under the guid- ance of Miss Ann Burgdorf. Part of the work of the Thespians, established in June ’66 with 17 char- ter members, is acting as drama con- sultants to the rest of the department. Drama Club and Workshop go hand in hand, planning and staging a play, this year’s offering being, “Inherit the Wind”. Drama class, an accredited course, gives aspiring actors and actresses an opportunity to show their ability in creative dramatics. Sarah Gilman, Valerie Astolas, and Karl Lin- den run over lines for “Inherit the Wind " 85 Majorettes, Dance Club, and Dance club officers Paula Parrish (Sec.) Sue E merson (V. Pres ), Mr. Speelman (Advisor), Carol LaRocca (Pres ), and Debbie Sutter (Treas.) planned series of events for MHS. MAJORETTES The 1966-67 school year saw the formation of many new activities. Among the most popular was the Majorette Corps. Jill Croker, Marcia Bolt, Cheryl Brown, Kathy Klage, Pam Huelett, Nancy Fodor, Julie Morehead, Laurie Chruby, Julie Headdy, and Joan Buvala comprised the vigorous twirling corps, entertaining during half time at home basketball games. Under the direction of Mrs. James Jennings, the participants worked in groups to present varied routines of twirling com- bined with dancing skills. DANCE CLUB To provide an outlet for entertain- ment for MHS students, a dance club was organized under the spon- sorship of Mr. Robert Sutter. At the beginning of the year, each homeroom elected a representative who attended meetings to help plan the dances. The club met and began the year with the election of officers: Carol LaRocca was elected president., Sue Emerson, V. Pres.; Paula Parrish, Secretary; and Debbie Sutter, Treas- urer. Throughout the year dance club sponsored four dances which were held in the commons area and fea- tured local bands. 86 GAA Work for Student Enjoyment GAA officers are really “on the ball.” (FROST): Nancy Micon, treas.; (STANDING, left to right): Kathy VonBorstel. pres.; Renee Peyrot, vice-pres.; and Gwen Sartain, sec. GAA To stimulate participation in girl’s athletics and to promote sportsman- ship, the Girls Athletic Association was formed. Under the direction of Mrs. Cor- son and Miss Christoff, freshmen through senior girls enjoyed many activities each Tuesday, including basketball, track, volleyball, tennis, gymnastics, and badminton. The officers of GAA are President, Kathy VonBorstel; Vice President, Renee Peyrot; Secretary, Gwen Sar- tain; and Treasurer, Nancy Micon.

Journalists and Artists Train JOURNALISM Journalists have been busy this year with work on the “Crier” and the “Paragon.” Journalism Club, under the direc- tion of Miss Barbara Sichak, has been working on advertising, writing, reporting, and layout. As reporters for the “Crier”, they have learned how to search for news and how to write it in the journalistic way of the 4 W’s and H, who, what, where, when, why, and how. They have contributed to the paper and the yearbook with help on layout and copy writing. Another facet of journalism ex- plored by the club members, was that of production of the paper, and also distributed it. All this adds to a well rounded journalistic education. Lisa Ravenscroft, Palmer Ross, and Susie Smith p repare a preliminary layout for edi- torial page. Donna Lautz types Crier copy for publication. ART WORKSHOP During the second lunch period everyday besides Tuesday, twenty- five to thirty students meet in the art room of the junior high building for art workshop. Students in art work- shop are those who are enrolled in an art class during the day and this gives them the opportunity to work on their projects, and also students who do not take art are given a chance to experiment with their art ability. The art workshop also is a public service to the school. The calendars between lecture rooms for the various months are designed and displayed by different small groups in the workshop. Christmas decorations and posters for sectionals were made by this group of students. Currently they are working on posters encour- aging the town to vote in town pri- maries.

Donna Moore is one of many who assist in running errands. To equip large P.E. groups, classes are subdi- vided into units under the direction of student leaders. Jeff Horan guides P.E. basketball. 94 All Areas of Munster High With larger classes and new faci- lities, teachers found it profitable to employ the assistance of students in the areas of physical education, bio- logy, the office, and the resource center. To become an assistant, stu- dents completed applications which were submitted to tfie respective de- partments. Leaders had to maintain above average grades and be willing to accept responsibility. In biology and physical education, students, by leading individual small groups, helped to break down the vastness of larger classes. In the of- fice and resource center, students as- sisted the secretaries and librarians in organizing materials and running errands. Most leaders found the program rewarding, fun, and an experience they would not soon forget. P.E. student assistants lead a hard life. After a grueling work-out, Derek Paul takes a break. Mr. Speelman is not such a hard task-master. With guidance jobs finished, Diane Turpen studies. Gene Carlson, Jack-of-all-trades, helps both Mr. Speelman in guidance and Mrs. Shakes in PE.

Carol LaRocca manages to reserve works. ... the beginning of many friendships Every facet of the whole complex of Munster High School had a very important common characteristic. Academics, organizations, social ac- tivities, and sports all had to have one special ingredient to become ef- fective. Without administrators, teach- ers, secretaries, students, and school employees, MHS could not be a real- ity. For the Class of ’67, the past four years were full of interesting experiences and solid friendships, made possible only by . . . people Educators Plan Progressive Program for Mr. Frank H. Hammond, Superintendent of Munster Public Schools. Mr. Ray Rittman, principal of Wilbur Wright Junior High School. 98 Munster Schools Maintaining the excellent reputa- tion of the Munster schools is the job of Mr. Frank H. Hammond, Super- intendent of Munster Schools. Mr. Hammond has seen the hopes of Munster citizens for improving and broadening the system become re- ality, the most recent of these being the completion of the new senior high building. Dr. Berard Masse, principal, has strived this past year to create a di- versified curriculum with extensive activities, providing a sound founda- tion for Munster High students. Mr. Ray Rittman is the principal of Wilbur Wright Jr. High. Separate buildings have permitted Mr. Ritt- man to plan full use of facilities, in- cluding the fieldhouse for lunch hour program. “Time for you and time for me, And time yet for a hundred indecisions And for a hundred visions and revisions.” Eliot.

Seniors Create Tradition The first graduating class of Mun- ster High School has come and gone but the achievements they have made and the precedents they have set will long be remembered. The Class of ’67 has played a large part in planning and executing Munster’s Football Field Dedication and shared the fun of building a float which “melted down” the “Ingots”. Can seniors ever forget their Snicker’s candy bars, the prize for winning 1st in the post- er contest. The seniors found another first in senior cords which they decorated and displayed at the Senior Cords Dance. There were tense moments this last year for the seniors. These in- clude SAT’s and waiting for replies from the college of their choice. But the good times overshadow the bad. The seniors will ever be grateful to the juniors for their efforts in the first Junior-Senior Prom. Of these good times perhaps the most exciting was graduation. The Senior Class, under their newly elected officers, held a Banquet, Commencement, and l ots of private parties to celebrate the first graduation held at Munster High School. Now they are gone but the spirit of ’67 will linger for a long time to come. 106 Leading the class in 1967, senior officers are: f SEATED ) Kathy Brown, secretary, Cindy Stone, treasurer, (STANDING) George Baker, vice president, Jeff Horan, president.

They are (SEA TED) Sandy Goodman, treasurer, Kathy Beyer, secretary, (STANDING) Peter Davis, vice president, Ron Gyure, president. Extending fondest farewells to the first graduating seniors, the Junior Class expresses their eagerness to assume the leadership of Munster High School. In the past year as upperclassmen, they set numerous standards, sharing the honor of establishing the traditions of MHS. Working together their talents and energy permeated every phases of MHS life adding to its excellence. They can proudly recall their 1st place Dedication Day float “Deliver Us To Victory.” The new adventure of planning the prom and the after-prom-party at Woodmar Country Club gave the Juniors a sensation of satisfaction as they joined in the festivities of Munster’s first Junior-Senior Prom. Term papers, PSAT’s, Foreign Lan- guage exams, National Merit Tests, class rings, and the election of class officers are included in the reflections of that third year. Under the guidance of Mr. Gene Fort their sponsor, the key word for the class of ’68 has been “achievement” and excellence is their cry as they will continue to excell in spirit, academics, participation, and athletics. Antici- pating a year that’s bound to be great . . . “ 68 ”! Students may receive aid in the resource area from materials personnel when in need of special references.

Not only is the Soph- omore spirit exceptional, but their frequent participation in sports and numerous other activities has helped to better the reputation of Munster High School. For example, the class of ’69 played a large part in the success of Dedication Day. A collection was taken-up and the sophomores helped increase the glory of that day by decorating the football field. Later in the day they joined-in spiritedly in competition of the floats and cheering their team to victory. Munster’s largest class can also be proud of the many sophomores who are a part of most of the activities such as Speech and Debate Club, Stu- dent Council, Drama Club, Journal- ism Club, and Dance Club. Undoubtedly the class of ’69, as they await the title of upper-classmen, will progress in their achievements throughout their high school yeairs.

Getting along with others is the primary goal of activities. Sports, Student Council, journalism, and band and chorus de- mand the effort of all to succeed as a group. This cooperative spirit lays the foundation of the jr. high “Oh why did you give me that grade?!” Jim Mc- Laughlin (above) discusses business with Mr. Michael Ream. Mr. Grover assists automation. (Right) Tapes fill in for the busy teachers in reviewing missed lectures. Junior High Students Put Forth Ac Joe Schneider is undaunted by a mound of work. Using resource time advantageously, Junior High students are able to complete assignments on time. 128 Lectures do not reduce students to mere numbers. The large groups disbanded into small seminars in which each student gets personal attention. demic Effort The academic growth of a student of from grade school to high school is the ultimate goal of the junior high school. In an attempt to accommodate the students’s quest for knowledge, a vast and diversified curriculum was pro- gramed. Courses offerings included English geography, American History, various levels of mathematics, German, general science, biology, typing, develop- mental reading, industrial arts, music, home economics, physical education, and art. These courses in conjunction with the able and dedicated leadership of our jr. high faculty, gave the students the opportunity to light the lamp of knowl- edge and to keep it burning bright. Under the guidance of Mr. Lazar, biology be- comes object of interest for student. Todd Corban ponders German before translating. Lengthy German words require Cherie Brown’s attention. Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Graders The Junior High Journalism Club was under the direction of Mr. Robert Grover this past school year. Activities and events of the Junior High School were reported bi-weekly by the paper. Many students gained vast journal- istic knowledge through the use of two individual staffs. These two staff’s joined together to produce the “Crier” in con- junction with the senior high newspaper edition. To initiate the school year they par- ticipated in the sale of subscriptions, both for the newspaper and the yearbook. The financial backing of the paper was supplemented by bake sales held during lunch hours. On May 3rd, the efforts of these ambitious young journalists were hon- ored at the Quill and Scroll Press Night. Mr. Grover. Junior High Journalism Advisor, helps Bill Shaver with strip printer.

The Junior High athletes, showing great desire and spirit, completed a very successful 66-67 sports campaign. Eighth grade footballers coached by Mr. Jennings ended with a 5 — 0 record. Taft, Hobart, Griffith, East Gary and River Forest were the conquered. Coach Robertson’s ninth grade Mustangs beat Clark, Crown Point, Griffith, Lowell, Valpo, and Lake Central for their 6 — 2 record. Basketball teams in the Junior High also had good reason to be proud of the season. Coached by Mr. Ordyna, Mr. Robertson, Mr. Friend, Mr. Kocal, Mr. Jennings, and Mr. Lazar and Mr. Bochnowski, the seventh, eighth, and ninth graders are learning the basic steps to being good all round athletes.

Looking to bright things to come are both Kent Kraus and Fred Malo. On the Threshold of a New Tomorrow Munster High School’s dawning year is now at a close. We of the Paragon staff sincerely hope that this is an ac- curate and memorable account of the 1966-67 school year. In so many ways, this was a year to remember. The first year with complete high school facilities and an entire student body was full of many new and exciting situations. We belive we have captured in essence the birth of Munster High to be remembered for years to come. Special thanks are due to many in- dividuals whose efforts and assistance made the Paragon ’67 possible. Mr. Robert Hastings of American Yearbook Company was of immense help to us, steadying our nerves when deadlines caught us unaware. Responsible for the vast majority of photography found in this book is Root Studios of Chicago. We would especially like to thank Mrs. Dompke and Mr. Coughlin of Root for their time and trouble in our behalf. We owe Miss Gonce and her audio- visual assistants a sincere thank-you. Ed Smylevitz of the “Crier” staff deserves an award for all he has done to ease the strain of publishing a yearbook. Many high school journalists submitted copy which is well worth applauding and we are grateful for the efforts of the journalism classes. Last, but not least, we of the Paragon are appreciative of the interest and effort put forth by our advisor, Miss Barbara Sichak. In her year at MHS, Miss Sichak has sup- ported and helped us through all the sticky spots and long nights before each deadline. I would like to personally thank my staff for their help and moral support. I realize how rough it is to lose a night’s sleep to make a deadline and I’m grateful for the dedication of all those who sacrificed for the benefit of the Munster High School Paragon. Munster High School has a long, promising future ahead. The students who will graduate in coming years will have their own memorable moments and special class pride. The Class of ’67 is the only class, however, with the distinction of being able to say, “There is always a tomorrow — but ours was the dawn.” 160 1967 PARAGON MAJOR STAFF Editor-in-Chief Sheri Niksic Managing Editors Nancy Micon Ann Hasselbohm Copy Editor Linda Werskey Layout Editors Ed Kraus Greg Eppler Photography Editor Bob Leopold Business Manager . . .
