Others get lost along the way and fail the history test, get a free three day school vacation, or simply drop out of school completely.

Working on floats, dressing for spirit week, watching the bonfire and pa- rade, and welcoming home the alumni were just few of the events of Homecoming 75. Floats, organizations, and deco- rations all revolved around the theme “Circus World. " lean and jersey, farmers, nos- talgia, class color, and red and white days were the symbols of spirit week and the anticipation of the weekend. Thursday night the traditional bonfire in the Community Park was ablaze due to the efforts of senior boys who volunteered their time to construct the woodpile. The fire was not lit until Varsity Cheerleaders led a few cheers and football co-cap- tains Kevin McDonald, Mike Mason and Bob Vitkus, seniors, gave a pep talk to the crowd. The bonfire provided only a brief period of rest, as once again Thursday night rolled into Friday morning all too soon for those who put finishing touches on class floats. Homecomi ng day provided the most activity for those in- volved. An hour before the pa- rade started, all floats had to be at Munster Christian Reformed Church for judging. Three class floats, a side show by Publications, Science Club ' s " Monty Python ' s Flying Circus, " princesses cars, cheerleaders. Marching Band, Majorettes, and Drill Team proceeded down the Ridge Road parade route. After the parade, students and teachers re-enacted childhood days by competing on four- member teams in Office Educa- tion Association ' s (OEA) trike race. Mike Caskey, junior, Dan Harvey, senior, and freshmen Chris Pokrifcak and Bob Wis- newski known as " Charged, " were the (Continued on pg. 12) ABOVE: Light My Fire.

Mr. )ohn McDonald, shop in- structor and Mr. Kevin Vana, so- cial science and world history teacher beat OEA members Nancy Cuillotte and Kathy Cooney around the track. Tempting smells of chicken barbeque filled the air while the race continued. Speech and De- bate once again held their an- nual chicken barbeque to 1500 people in the cafeteria, while Girls ' Volleyball and Swim team members released hundreds of colorful helium-filled balloons. Cheering crowds, loyal fans, and the spirit of Homecoming may have helped the team to work harder. Their determina- tion played off for the winning (Continued on pg. 14) RIGHT: First Step.

Gayle Rovai, Student Senate President, announced the float and princess results at halftime, while selections by Chicago were performed by Marching Band. The princesses were freshman Naomi Savage; Linda )eorse, sophomore; Karen Por- ter, junior; and the three queen candidates were seniors Patti DeCola, Marita de la Cotera, and Nancy Nolan. Marita was announced queen. Anticipation rose as time drew near for an- nouncement of floats. Juniors captured first place with their movable clown lighting a fire- cracker. " Those clowns are in for a Bang. " Second place went to the seniors, " It looks like the end for the Devils " portraying a circus elephant sitting on a devil while its trunk moved up and down, and sophomores ' lion trapping a devil, " Eat ' Em Up Lion Down " received third. Pub- lications once again won the car competition with their entry " Squash ' Em. " Saturday morning freshmen decorated the cafeteria with stuffed animals and signs. As evening drew near, couples vis- ited pre-Homecoming parties, and then made their way to the school where they were met at the door by freshmen dressed as clowns. " Midwest Sound " pro- vided the music for 165 couples. A refreshment table was set up so couples could curb their hun- ger before a late dinner. The princesses and their es- corts walked up the red carpet where Marita was crowned by Senior Class President, Tom Et- ling, and was seated to reign over her court. As the dance hours came to a close and couples headed out for a late dinner, the last day of Homecoming 75 came to an end. BELOW: Clownin ' around.

Remember me from the bowling alley? I ... uh ... dropped the ball on your foot. " " Oh, you ' re the one! " " Well, I ' m really sorry and I would like to make it up to you. How would you like to get lucky and have a date with a guy who has great looks and a personality to match? " " John finally broke up with Karen? " " NO! I mean with me. Just think, you can tell your friends on Monday morning that you had a date with Brian. " " That ' s what I ' m worried about! " " Ah, come on. Just go on a date with me this once. " " Date? Don ' t you think that term is a little out of style? " " What do you mean? " " Brian, let me set you straight. Well, when kids at school go out they mainly use the term ' going out ' , but they don’t really think of it as a formal date. It ' s more like a chance for a guy and girl to get together and have a good time. A lot of things have changed in the past few years. " " You’re kidding. Like what for instance? " " Have you been hibernating Brian? " Even though it ' s mostly the guys who ask the girl out and pick up the tab, girls no longer have to sit around waiting for the phone to ring. With woman ' s lib being a big issue now, many girls see themselves equal to guys and will ask them out and of- ten pay the bill. This no longer is con- sidered socially unacceptable like it was years ago. " " I don ' t think I quite understand this— anyway will you go out with me? " " I ' m sorry Brian but I don ' t know how I can. I don’t think we are compatible. " " Compatible? Well, what do you look for in a guy? " " Physical appearance, personality, and reputation rank high on my list. Don ' t misunderstand me Brian. I ' m not saying you don ' t have these. " " Don ' t worry. I think I ' m beginning to understand now. To get back on the subject-will you go out with me or not? " " Brian, I ' m almost positive I ' ll be busy . . . but wait a minute, have I got a girl for you! " " Oh, Irene I ' ve been through this blind date thing before. It was the worst evening of my life. She got her thrills by counting the telephone poles on Ridge Road and watching the lobsters in the tank at Jewel ' s. Be- sides that, she didn ' t live up to her full expectations. My friend (?) said she resembled Raquel Welch. Ha! Come on, we could still go out and have a good time. What do you like to do? " " I ' m like most people. I like to go to movies, parties, dinner, concerts, and on special occasions-Chicago. " " I like to do that too. Do you still think we are uncompatible? " " Well, maybe not so much. " " Then how about an exotic dinner and fun-filled evening? " " I guess we could give it a try. " " Our exotic dinner turned out to be ' two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese . . . ' and the fun-filled evening was a night of bowling and once again Brian did foot damage with that wicked bowling ball of his. Only this time it was my other foot. When Brian turned into my drive way, I thought to myself ' there could have been worse nights, but when our braces locked as he kissed me good- night, I knew I had just experienced the worst night of my dating career! " Fashion minded. Long skirts vs. jeans are one way that junior Sara Lanman shows she can keep in style. Pucca beads, earth shoes, mood rings, and toe socks accessorized stylish outfits. 18 Fads and Fashions Breaker one, this here is Moon-Boy. What ' s your 20? ... Be sure your pet rock has lots of love and a warm home while you are away . . . How do you do the Bump? . . . Can this really be true? What is all this strange talk? Who would love rocks like they would love their dog? Unbelievable! This may seem strange, but pet rocks were just one of many fads popular in 1975. Who ' s to say whether or not you are in style? Does it mean you aren ' t “with it " if you don ' t wear the correct fashion or do the current fad? The media and commercial world try to press fads and fashions on teens so they feel they must buy the latest “in " things to keep up with everyone else. Friends also pressure teens to keep in style and " in " with the crowd. Clothes were just one fad popular this year. A few years back, fashions weren ' t the same as now. Hemlines have been going up and down seem- ingly with the economy. This year skirts and dresses found the knee and below a popular place to be. Boys stuck to their painter ' s pants and overalls, but occasionally would be seen dressing up in corduroys and nice shirts. Pucca beads, scarves, tur- quoise, and mood rings were acces- sories that were necessary to com- plete an outfit. Current movies even had an effect on clothes. The great white shark from " Jaws " could be seen on socks, shirts, and ties. Other popular movies included titles such as, " Tommy, " " Dog Day Afternoon, " " Lucky Lady, " and " Hustle. " Along the same line were current television shows— " Wel- come Back, Kotter " , " Happy Days " , " Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman " , and " Monty Python ' s Flying Circus " to name a few. Alive, Jaws, and Once is Not Enough were a few top sellers on the book list. " Dance With Me, " " Love Will Keep Us Together, " " Love Roller Coaster, " " Someone Saved My Life Tonight, " and " Fly Robin Fly " hit the top song charts during the course of the year. Top songs helped to make dis- cotheques become increasingly pop- ular. The more energetic person wished to learn new steps such as the Bump, Hustle, and Bus Stop to coordinate with the rhythms of the fast paced music many people enjoyed. Although you couldn ' t get your fa- vorite songs on a citizen ' s band radio (more commonly known as CB) you could communicate with fellow CB fans. A new language had to be adapted, for codes were used to dis- guise the meanings and identities of drivers. Other fads that were " in " were Sva- boda ' s, transcendental meditation, pinball machines and arcades. Sva- boda ' s, though with a time limit and an age barrier, was the place to go to work the nickelodeons and relive the ABOVE: Go with the Grind.

To get into the beat, seniors Debbie Jacobi and Kevin Kiefer imitate the latest dance craze— the Bump. past. Transcendental meditation was a source of relaxation for the many who believed in its power. Books, lec- tures, and sessions taught those who wished to learn the correct technique. The movie " Tommy " turned pinball machines and arcades into renewed fads. You could attempt to beat your friend ' s score or try your hand at air hockey. Contests were even held to see who would become the " Pinball Wizard " . Though most fads were on a na- tionwide level, the Grinder Fan Club was local to the school only. The club met during every basketball game to support " Grinder, " senior Lee Millies, and the rest of the team. At regular in- tervals through out the game, the club, wearing t-shirts, displayed their rowdiness by holding up signs and shouting for their team. Fads and fashions will always be changing. No one can say for sure what will be in style for the coming years. Though they often sound strange, people will continue to try to be in style and keep up with the cur- rent fad. body 9J " Just one more day until the game, " she thought, as another pain shot through her already bruised body. It was hard enough to walk between classes, let alone suffer through another football practice. " Ugh! How can guys take all that run- ning and pushing for three months? I ' m struggling through one week! I will be glad when this Powder Puff game between the junior and senior girls is over! I don ' t think I would do it again if I had the chance! " Once again preparations for the second annual Powder Puff football game were in progress. Seventy-one girls wearing jeans and jerseys, practiced wherever space permitted, since the ath- letic teams had first priority. Within a week, junior coaches Mr. George Pollingue, class sponsor and Mr. Robert Mai- cher, math teacher, had taught the girls the fundamentals of flag football and warm-up exercises. Senior girls, coached by Mr. Tom Whiteley, U.S. History teacher, and baseball coach Mike Niksic reviewed various plays and skills the girls learned last year. During halftime, the crowds were entertained by the boy cheerleaders and the crowning of senior Rich Simeoni as Pow- der Puff King. For the second consecutive year, the seniors came out victo- rious with a score of 20-6. Se- niors Leslie Marden, Michelle Mezey, and Linda Porter made the touchdowns for their class. Jane Fissinger made the only ju- nior touchdown. " I have to admit, that game was fun and quite an experi- ence! I can ' t wait to try it again!

Instead of the usual books, pens, and paper, some students used ballet shoes, riding boots, and musical instruments to reflect their learning interests through out-of-school activities. Students found ways of expressing themselves outside of the normal classroom. Some students sought music lessons as an escape from the school classroom. From piano and harp to violin, banjos, and guitars, students learned to appreciate music and play an instrument under the guidance of trained instructors. Others practiced voice exercises and memorized lyrics and tunes in hopes of following a singing career. Other more experienced students switched roles and taught beginning - music enthusiasts to read notes and produce pleasant music. Students also demonstrated their teaching ability by tutoring other high school students who had difficulty in Chemistry, Math, and Spanish, and by teaching religion classes to public school students. Ballet, tap, and modern dance were practiced by girls hoping to keep in shape while learning new routines. Everything from the basic positions and turns to the more advanced pirouettes and arabesques were learned through many hours of hard work. Soon the more experienced students were able to create their own dance routine without the assistance of their instructors, expressing their personal ideas. Horseback riding gave teenagers a chance to develop their skills while practicing their routines in outdoor and indoor arenas. After many long hours of mounting and dismounting, doing turns and gaits with their horses, the students who showed exceptional ability went on to compete at horse shows in near-by communities. Students wishing to participate in swimming and tennis lessons went to both private and public clubs. Whether with tennis shoes, a guitar, dance shoes, or a riding saddle, students expanded their general knowledge through out-of-school experiences and learning.

" sighed the relieved student as the last day of school came to an end. For the past nine months, she had looked forward to a long summer of relaxation and excitement. A voice over the P.A. system suddenly blurted, “Would those students enrolled in summer school please report to the North building office to pick up their class schedules. " “Oh, no! " wailed the student as she had just reached the door, remembering she was committed to another eight full weeks of studies. " There goes my tan! " June 9 came too soon and the 40 days of summer school began for 751 students. As the last bike chain was being locked, the clock ticked closer to the start of classtime. Students entered the air conditioned commons and engaged in a little pre-class socializing before 24 Summer Learning class began. The basic atmosphere was set with pop cans under desks or candy bars hidden inside folders. When a teacher turned around, the student tried to eat his “nutritious " breakfast. Through half-shut eyes and yawns here and there , students struggled to keep awake during lectures, assignments and physical activities. Such classes as Typing and Developmental Reading were open to those students eager to develop skills enabling them to study and work at a faster pace. Many of the Drivers Education students met as early as six o ' clock a.m. to drive through the dawn-lit streets. Drivers Ed. classes consisted of an hour and a half lecture everyday, plus six hours of behind-the-wheel driving and twelve hours of in-car observation. Required courses, like Physical Education and Health and Safety, were also offered. Students tried to keep in shape and learn basic first aid skills. Additional classes such as English, History, and Math were offered to those needing to make up necessary courses. Students were not alone " putting in extra time, " as 31 teachers were on the summer school staff, 19 of which were involved in Drivers Education. They lectured and entrusted their safety in the hands of novice drivers. Before realizing it, eight weeks of studying had come to its conclusion. " Pheew! " summer school is over at last! Now I can go home, lay in the sun, catch up on that tan, and . . " Did you hear? We pick up our schedules next week. " Well, here we go again! LFFT: Grand slam!

" " Help! I don ' t understand! " Communication is the process by which two or more people exchange ideas. When people think of communication, their first thought turns to conversation. They often fail to realize the many different ways they communicate, especially in school. Stop and think where you would be without the many forms of expressing ideas? Communication is a broad and important part of life. It is obvious that survival would be difficult without it. From the moment a person is born and utters his first gurgle, he is making contact with other people. Preparing for contact with society is a purpose the school undertakes. Many forms of communication take place in the school, such as lectures, speeches, skits, writing, group discussions, drawing, and singing. Lectures are widely used in many classes including English, History, Sociology, Economics, Psychology and Government. Although students may not think of them as expressing ideas, lectures are the main way of transmitting information from teacher to student. Speeches and skits are used to offer knowledge, to fellow classmates and their teachers. These activities are prevalent in English, Foreign Language and Speech classes. English 9 students performed excerpts from Inherit the Wind and Romeo and Juliet. Sophomores acted out scenes from Camelot, while juniors performed MacBeth. Speech students learned to verbally express their thoughts without stuttering and stammering through impromtu, informative, and demonstrative speeches.

In US History, students often wrote or gave oral reports. Of course, journalism I was important in introducing methods of mass communication to aspiring young journalists. They learned to write copy and create layout designs with eye appeal. Group discussions proved successful in getting ideas across from teacher to student and student to student. Government classes developed an assimilation government game called Hopcal in which group discussion became the center of governmental success. Biology, Psychology and Sociology also depended heavily on student involvement. Spanish, French and German classes were open to those who felt brave enough to venture into another language. A few proficient speakers acquired the potential for possible positions as interpreters and translators. Expressing ideas is not limited to only verbal communication, as it can extend to art and music classes. When a person draws a picture or creates a metal sculpture, he is communicating visually through his masterpiece, rather than through words. People involved in music depend on the lyrics, melody, and mood to get their feelings across to the listeners. Communication is found everywhere in school, it just takes time and thought to discover it. Whether listening to a lecture, taking part in a skit, writing an oral report, singing a song, painting a picture, or participating in a group discussion, students do communicate. Communication 29 a! Ha! Ha! " Omigosh! Did you see that!?! " " Golly! I ' ve never seen anyone so red in my life! " " Yeah! she looked like an over- grown beet! " " Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha " My face must have turned ten shades of red— I wanted to fade qui- etly into the background pattern of the walls— I ' ll never forget the time when . . . ... It was the end of the first hour, and I had just come out of a semester exam in English. I was very nervous and upset, and I was so pre-occupied with the test I had just taken that I walked straight to my third hour class and sat down. As the teacher was passing out the test, I realized that I was in the wrong room, so I got up and walked gingerly (amid laughter) out of the room and on down the hall to my second hour class. When my teacher asked me where I had been, I just blushed. I was so embarrassed! . . . One day in lunch I decided that it was high time I took some action toward a certain person that sits be- hind me in lunch. I got dressed up in a new outfit (my first skirt since school started). Like a charm school gradu- ate, I walked up to the lunch line to pick up my cold pizza and melted jello. As I glided back to my seat, I just so happened to pass HIS seat. Af- ter brushing with " Ultra-Brite " for a half an hour before school I flashed him that " sex-appeal " smile. Since my eyes were glued to his face, I didn ' t notice the banana peel on the floor. I fell with the grace of a cow on crutches and HIS eyes on me. I was so embarrassed! ... I was walking to the South Building on a windy day. Suddenly I realized my wrap-around skirt wasn ' t wrapped around any more. I was so embarrassed! ... I finally decided to go on a diet and stick to it. After losing ten pounds I decided to treat myself to a new outfit. I wore it to school the next day and everyone complimented me on it, but as soon as I turned my back. I ' d hear snickering. It went on like this all day praise, snicker, praise, snicker, praise, snicker. It wasn ' t until I got home that I realized I had left two curlers in my hair. I was so embarrassed! . . . This guy I know used to work in a gas station. One day he was pump- ing gas into this old lady ' s tank when a girl he liked walked by. He called out her name and she stopped to talk for a while. About ten minutes later, he realized that he had forgotten all about the old lady and her gas. He turned around to see how she was doing, and she was gone! His boss was standing there glaring at him. His girlfriend asked him why his boss was so mad, but he couldn ' t answer. He was so embarrassed! . . . I ' ll never forget my first date. Ev- erything had to be perfect— my hair was curled, I had my new jeans L. pantsuit on, and little brother prom- ised he ' d stay upstairs until we left. We really had a nice time, but when he turned to kiss me goodnight, my little brother was on the stairs giggl- ing. I was so embarrassed! . . . One Sunday morning I got up early to surprise my parents and serve them breakfast in bed. When I went out to get the morning paper, still dressed in my robe and slippers, the wind blew the door shut behind me. I tried to open it, but it had locked au- tomatically— had to stand outside and pound on the front door until my dad got up and let me in. I was so embarrassed! ... I was on the J.V. Hockey team in our first game of the season. At the end of the third period of the Varsity game, we were leading 6-0, so the coach decided to put a few of us in, I got the puck and skated lightening fast across the ice. The crowd was QQD cheering behind me and drove me closer to my destination. I finally swung and made a goal ... I was so excited . . . until I saw that it was for the other team . . . then I was so embarrassed! . . . One day I was babysitting for this family who had a newborn baby. They left me explicit instructions: feed at 6:00, bathe at 6:30 with diaper change and bedtime at 7:00. I got through to the part about putting a fresh diaper on. It was one of those - new disposable ones and I had never used one be-l did the best I could, but when they came home, the lady went in to check on her baby and came out laughing hysterically. When I asked her what was so funny, she brought out the baby and told me-l had put the diaper on inside-out! I was so embarrassed! Embarrassment is something that no one can escape. People will always be doing silly things without realizing it and the same funny feeling will overcome them. Remember the time you . . . W hat do you need most in the middle of the day to help you get back on your feet? No, not Geritol. Children take naps and have their milk and cookie hour; basketball teams have " time- outs " ; actors get their " take 10 " breaks; other workers get coffee breaks; teachers have planning peri- ods. So what can the hard-working, diligent student have as an escape from his long, six hard hours of as- signments, lectures, tests, reports, and term papers? Study Halls! Besides lunch hour and 3:08, the study hall is probably the most trea- sured time of a student ' s school day. Here he has the opportunity to do whatever he pleases, within reason. He can cram for the big history exam next hour, the one he forgot to study for the night before. If it ' s not a test, maybe it ' s just daily assignments, oth- erwise, one can finish his homework for tomorrow. " Study hall " , is not exactly the most accurate title for the class. Most people would prefer to call it a " social hall " , for this is where students can re- lax and catch up on the latest gossip- what happened at joe ' s party on Sat- urday or after the game on Friday. Others play cards, munch on a snack, or if they can stand all the noise, just sleep. There are some lucky people who have first or sixth hour study hall. With a signed permission slip, these students have the opportunity to ar rive at school an hour late or leave an hour early. Study hall is essential to the stu- dent ' s school life. Without it, there would not be any break in the routine of a student ' s school day.

The 26 staff members met second hour everyday to put together a newspaper, the Crier. Along with being sold for 15C to students, the paper was exchanged with other schools. Long hours were spent in the Pub, at Midwest Publishing, and with local merchants in order to produce and fund each issue. A two and one-half week process preceded distribution of the paper. Preparation time was spent assigning stories, interviewing news sources, researching facts, writing copy, and then fitting all the elements together. With no school financial support and the money from sales insufficient to cover the $6000 printing expenses, staff members had to raise money throughout the year. Selling advertisements to area businesses kept the staff financially sound. Also Christmas and Thanksgiving wish sales were held to add to their revenue. Creativity played a major role in providing interesting stories and articles to the readers. This involved varying writing styles and techniques without omitting necessary information. The inside specials provided staffers with opportunities to use their ingenuity. In-depth reports on topics ranging from in-town shopping facilities to the availability of local entertainment were featured. Crier received a first class rating from the National Scholastic Press Association for second semester of 74-75. LEFT: CRIER: FRONT ROW: Dave Ladd, Greg Emily, Ethna Sinisi, Jeff Gray, Matt Branco.

Pictures were constantly being taken and developed, copy and captions written and rewritten, materials proportionately placed on the spread, possible errors checked, and after final approval, spreads were mailed to the printer. PARAGON was a year-round production as eight senior staffers also spent one week of their summer vacation attending a workshop at Ball State University. Here, aspiring journalists from all over the country shared ideas and learned more effective ways to produce a unique yearbook. For Homecoming, PARAGON and CRIER supported a joint cause. Assembling the side show for “Circus World " , Publications ' fat lady and freaks placed first in the car division. PARAGON staffers raffled off the Homecoming football for 25 t a ticket. Another necessary project was the yearbook campaign in which books were sold and PARAGON ' S theme, “Where Do We Go From Here, " was promoted. Brightly colored signs were painted by members of the Promotion staff, the training for working on the yearbook. Ads and patrons were sold to local businesses and families, and in the summer the annual yearbook dance was held. Adopting a magazine approach with feature-like articles, the staff strived for creativity in their coverage. They also hoped to receive high ratings from various associations which critique yearbooks from all over the United States. A certain number of points was awarded in various areas such as coverage, layout design, advertising, cover, and special areas such as student artwork and photography. PARAGON 75 received the Medalist award for “spirit and creative excellence " from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA). The book was also rated by the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA). Long nights of rewrites and last minute corrections finally proved rewarding. Relieved staffers had made it through another year with the help of advisor, Mrs. Nancy Hastings. Using creative pictures and copy, staffers once again succeeded in capturing the happenings of the past year. UPPER LEFT: Any changes?

Members qualified by com- pleting Journalism I and by show- ing an interest in creative news writing. The members were picked by sponsor Mrs. Nancy Hastings from the applications submitted near the end of the school year. PEGASUS, the literary magazine, was composed of short stories, artwork, and poems submitted by students.

After school, students learned how to make rugs, develop pictures and operate radios. Anyone interested in the “How to ' s " of craft work was able to join the Crafts Club. Under the guidance of Miss Elizabeth Miller, the six members worked on projects, such as needlepoint, crewel, and rug hooking, once a month on Thursdays. Members provided their own materials, so no money making projects were necessary. Sophomore Pam Opatera served as president, while senior Susan Carlson acted as vice president and informed the members of the meeting dates. Photography Club members learned how to take pictures, develop film, and use various photo techniques. Club meetings were held after school on Wednesday in the darkroom under the supervision of sponsor Mr. David Russell. Trips to Chicago and the Dunes were planned for members to take pictures. With the help of a new sponsor, Mr. Gordon Olson, and a new Central Broadcasting (CB) antenna that was donated by club member freshman Dan Tomaszewski, the Radio Club started its activities. Students interested in the electronics industry met every Wednesday to learn about CB radios and their proper use. The only requirements of the club were having a radio broadcasting license or a CB radio. Without the necessary equipment on hand, senior Don Bunting, president and junior Bob Bieker, vice president decided that materials were needed. Plans were made to hold an electrical fox hunt in which each of the eight members participated. A fox was let loose transmitting a signal. The person who was able to keep track of the fox the longest with his radio was declared the winner. Although each student developed varied hobbies, they all were able to expand their interests through club membership. ABOVE: Final Touch.

It was 3:25 a.m. If you were on the Speech and Debate Team, this buzzing noise was often the unwelcome signal to get up. Reluctantly, you threw off your warm blanket, got dressed, and sleepily proceeded to school where the bus patiently waited. However, aspirations of the ribbons and coveted first place tropies brought home, plus the early snacks of doughnuts and milk, helped to make the early hour, uncomfortable bus ride seem more bearable. Traveling to after-school meets on Tuesdays and early-morning Saturday tournaments, 70 members had the opportunity to overcome any " fear of speaking " symptoms. Ranging from interpretation and original events to debating advantages and disadvantages of a specific topic, members chose predominately one of two areas to complete in throughout the season. To start the season, all members participated in the annual Chicken Barbecue. Canvassing door-to- door throughout the town, ambitious salesmen sold over 1600 tickets. When Homecoming arrived, members- busily turned chickens, cleaned tables, and served food. Those who enrolled in Speech III received one credit while practicing for the upcoming meets. The class offered an hour daily to improve and perfect their speaking ability and shorten the time needed for out-of-class research and extra practice. Attending meets from November to March, the test of the season appeared in sectional, regional, and state competition. Placing second in Sectionals and Regionals to Chesterton, the Speech team, coached by Mrs. Helen Engstrom and Mr. Edwin Burkhardt, advanced nine contestants to state. Even though the team placed ninth at the state meet in Lafayette, senior Sue Weinberg qualified for Nationals by placing first in Girls Extemperaneous. Another way to advance to Nationals was by placing first at Districts. Hard working debaters, coached by Mrs. Laura Hall and Mrs. Marge Barrett, also competed at various meets. The highlight of their season occurred when both two-man teams qualified for State, where they placed second and third to West Lafayette. The next week, the two-man team of senior Jim Stoddart and junior Lee Silver won Districts and advanced to Nationals in Colorado Springs, Colorado held in June. Concluding the busy season, the annual banquet was held at Condes. The dinner not only honored outstanding speakers, coaches, and assistants for their hard work throughout the year, but also rewarded everyone who had ventured outdoors in the early hours.

Your chances of survival would be limited. But with an interpreter, the natives would be most helpful in allowing you to roam the countryside. Student Senate opened these lines between the student body and the administration, thus allowing the students more freedom. Bright and early, at 8:00 a.m. once every three weeks, Senate members got together with their sponsor, Mr. Hal Coppage, to make plans to carry out those traditional Senate projects. Besides the annual homecoming festivities, and the Christmas party at Tradewinds Rehabilitation Center, Student Senate added quite a few things to their agenda. Activities allowed students to do many new projects ranging from drawing on walls to sitting back and enjoying a film festival. For the first time, Senate held a student exchange program with a school out of the local area. Four Senate members went to West Lafayette High School and four West Lafayette students came here. By going to a smaller school, they were able to see the different aspects between both schools, and how much more liberty a smaller school had. Revising the constitution took a lot of time. By doing this Senate hoped to be able to bring the students more freedom and privileges. Student Senate strives to fulfill their objectives by meeting the wishes of the student body. They are there to help the students in any way they can to make the school an overall better place, according to President Gayle Rovai.

Imagination becomes main ingredient of Creating While strolling through Chicago ' s Art Institute or Museum of Science and In- dustry, or listening to concert music people are exposed to creativity. Imagination is the basic ingredient of an individual ' s creativity. Adding his spe- cial spices of emotions and unique per- sonal ideas, he acquires a distinctive taste. Such accomplishments were possible because of the number of opportunities open to students. Beginning with Basic Art, the Art De- partment gave students a choice of eight courses, which became the foundation for more advanced classes. Historical and Environmental art students studied artists form different eras, from Egyp- tians to modern art. Drawing and Paint- ing students learned to add detail to make their semester project, a weed drawing, seem realistic. They expanded this process and painted an abstract de- sign during Drawing and Painting II. Di- mensional Design students concentrated their efforts on three-dimensional projects, including plaster sculptures, wood faces and mobiles.

Students using words instead of paint, expressed themselves by transferring their ideas to sentences on paper, rather than shapes on canvas. Expository com- positions, short stories and poems were the results of such talents found in English and Composition classes. In journalism, writers produced news sto- ries and copy for the school newspaper and yearbook. Advertisements, which students designed in Journalism I, were entered in competition in the Sun Jour- nal. The ads were judged on creative- ness and organization of elements of the ad. Foods, Clothing and Shop courses sat- isfied the creative instinct of both sexes because of the increased emphasis on equal rights. Boys were admitted into Food classes while girls took their place in the woodworking or drafting room. Together, both sexes could be seen making cabinets, creating cakes or de- signing garages. Considered in a special aspect, each art student was a Michelangelo; each journalist was a TIME reporter; and each cook was a Galloping Gourmet, because these students were able to express their creativity. 48 Creating LEFT: Permanent Press.

" As the month of December approached, girls had their chance to be in a boy ' s shoes by asking them to Chi, the annual semi-formal turnabout dance sponsored by Chi Kappa Chi sorority. As 125 couples crossed a ship ' s plank into St. Thomas More ' s gym, they entered a world of Christmas trees and posters which were donated by travel agencies that helped to create the theme, " Christmas Around the World. " Christmas tree centerpieces were placed at the tables where couples could sit and recall the evening ' s activities. Mistletoe Corner became the place where they could get together for a moment alone. Sounds of Stonewood Fox re- placed the traditional Christmas carols. Refreshments were pro- vided by Chi members, giving couples a chance to relax and catch their breaths between dances. Those who wished to remem- ber the night could purchase pictures from Victoria Studios for $5.50. Bids and favors resem- bling toy soldiers in stockings were handed out to each couple as another remembrance of Chi. When eleven o ' clock rolled around, couples headed for the exit and to restaurants for a late dinner. Keeping with the Christmas spirit of giving, the sorority do- nated all the profits, a sum of $495 to charities. The dance was their major money-making activity. " You know, I ' m glad that I asked him. " " See, it wasn ' t that hard to ask him now was it? " He said he would go. " " Yes, but I ' m certainly glad I ' m not a guy and have to do this often!

" Not all students suffer from cases of stage fright, however, in some way or another, they all must perform during class. Knotted and twisted stomachs, sweaty palms and trembling hands are the usual outcome of those students awaiting their turn to perform in skits, plays or oral reports in English and history classes. For those " born actors " , this could be a treasured moment filled with anticipation and excitement. These self- confident students often became involved in speech class in order to better their presentations. Students hoping to overcome their stage fright also took part in this class. By delivering different types of speeches, students gradually were able to calm their nerves and better their performance. Students interested in acting enrolled in drama class to enter a world of imagination with unlimited possibilities. Under the direction of Mr. Carl Young, students portrayed not only characters, but also different objects, such as ' machines or food.

Other musically oriented groups consisted of band and orchestra classes. These groups also performed at various concerts, usually near Christmas and in the spring. Physical education is another area where students have the chance to perform. If not testing their skills, students could be seen swimming laps, tumbling, spiking a volleyball or shooting baskets. Through practical jokes, whimsical remarks or even funny faces, students have been known to entertain their fellow classmates with amusing antics in order to gain attention. Students, like a clown, add entertainment and enjoyment to the routine of a school day. However, while these students might overwhelm others with their shows, these clowns may still suffer from a bad case of nerves when it comes time to deliver a speech. Whether acting on stage, in a classroom or on a football field, students perform everyday. Performing 55 " O There I stood in that giant au- ditorium. It looked so big, con- sidering there were only three people rehearsing our act: my- self the student director, and the other two actors. The next night I found we were cramped in my basement practicing the same scene among dad ' s workshop and mom ' s laundry. We had to get things perfected before the opening night of Mustang Sum- mer Theater. Seventy-five students spent their summer evenings memo- rizing lines, projecting their voices and practicing gestures for the presentation of summer theater ' s selection of one act plays. Mr. Daniel Rapaez, lan- guage arts teacher at Wilbur Wright Middle School was the director. He decided to use eleven one act plays instead of the usual two different plays so that more students could be involved. Opening night " Masher, " " The Sweater, " " Oh, Ronald, " and " Pardon My Second Scene " were presented to a small au- dience. The following night, " Cleft for Me, " " Clocks, " " A Lickpenny Lover, " and " A Lass Unparalled " were performed. All eleven plays were presented to the public on the following two nights. Students who had never been on a stage before had a chance to " star " or be a supporting ac- tor or actress. Along with director Mr. Ra- paez, senior Rhonda Rheinhold acted as hostess and introduced each act, while a different stu- dent director was selected to as- sist with each play. During intermission, a bake sale was held to help drama funds. Parties at Barton ' s or Shakey ' s, conflicting dates with the carni- val, selling of ads, and the re- turning of the regular seating ar- rangement were some factors that helped make summer the- ater 75 unique.

At five o ' clock this morning Mother woke me and told me to hurry and get dressed. It wasn ' t until we were on our way that I learned where we were going. " This was the opening scene from " The Diary of Anne Frank, " the story of a girl growing to be a woman and the seclusion and oppression felt by two Jewish families hiding from Nazi occupation forces during World War II. Preparation and selection of the cast for the fall play were started five and half weeks before opening night. Mr. Carl Young, director, selected the cast on the basis of reading ability, experience, and physical likeness to the characters, but ten days into practice, five cast members gave various reasons for quitting, putting the final cast behind schedule. Mr. Young was then faced with the problem of finding new cast members. Using his dramatics students, along with crews and former actors, the empty places were soon filled. Like all plays, problems arose. Besides the change in cast, sound cues presented difficulties for Mr. Young since he had never done a play with more than one or two cues, but " Diary " had over forty. " One of the most gratifying things about the cast was that the personalities of the characters were evident. They projected their interpretations of the parts to the audience. None of them merely recited lines, " stated Mr. Young. Different emotional scenes touched the audience and even moved some to tears. Even during the curtain call not a smile was shown on the faces of the cast because of the serious content. The drama ended when Mr. Frank reads Anne ' s last entry, " In spite of everything I still believe people are basically good at heart. " BELOW: " My beautiful coat!

Not every family has a daugh- ter dancing to xylophone music, pet snakes in the living room, or a not so famous author for a for their mother. Occasional blasts from the basement reminds the family of Mr. Sycamore ' s past- time— manufacturing fireworks. A typical nightly dinner consists of tomatoes, corn flakes, and a candy called " live dreams " . Al- though they have no jobs and pay no taxes, the Sycamore fam- ily is content to live in their own little world. In early February, plans were underway for the spring play, " You Can ' t Take It With You " . Rehearsals were held four or five times a week with one week off for spring vacation. Because the characters on " Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman " were similar to this play, the cast was assigned to watch the show to work on characterization. On May sixth, seventh, and eighth, Thespian Troupe 2861 presented the comedy under the direction of Mr. Carl Young and assistant director Miss Becky Longhauser. The play told of a family living during the 1930 ' s and the problems they ran into when their daughter wanted to marry the son of a rich tycoon. In the words of Mr. Young, " this plays offers an op- portunity for a large cast to have great fun with many strange characters. Its funny and it has a clear and worthwhile moral. " He also a dded that " everyone who saw it enjoyed it " The au- dience ' s reaction was very enthusiastic. " Since the play wasn ' t as lavish as a musical, the expenses ran between $500 and $600. The costs went towards royalties, sets, costumes, and publicity.

Spring play 61 ? ini fejfi©p ©pfi® To some students, ten points might mean the difference between an A or a B, but to those interested in the theater, it means membership in a special club. With late nights, hard work and quick dinners at McDonalds, 20 students earned the right to be initiated into Thespian troop 2861. Under the direction of sponsor Mr. Carl Young, drama and English 11 teacher, students participated in the fall and spring plays along with summer theater to earn points. One point was awarded for each ten hours of work, so many evenings of creating scenery, projecting voices, and painting signs were common to both students and to their parents. But Thespians were not all work and no play. Under officers, president senior Rhonda Rheinholdt, vice president senior Lorraine Longhauser, secretary junior Louise Waxman, and treasurer senior Cathy Moynagh, many unique activities were planned. Members had the chance to attend a rock version of the Shakespeare classic, “A RIGHT: Helpful Hints. In- structing perspective actors.

Midsummer Night ' s Dream” along with the play " You Can ' t Take It With You " at Indiana University Northwest. As a change of pace, Thespians also stayed home and the theater came to them. Keith Beiger, a professional pantomimist, performed before Thespian members and the drama class. During the summer, selected members attended the International Theatre Arts Conference for one week, sponsored by International Thespian Society. The conference, which is held every two years, gave members the opportunity to view plays, attend classes, and seminars, and see full length plays at night. Initiation for new members, who earned 10 points, was held at the winter and spring banquets. Although painting trees on cardboard may not be the most artistic activity certain students found constructing sets combined work with a little pleasure. Many late evenings the auditorium was filled with hopeful students, each worki ng to become a member of Thespian troup 2861. 62 Thespians ABOVE: Practice Makes Perfect.

However, in a different type of organization, a regular pattern was established. In fact, students who belonged to choir met every day in a scheduled course. In a regular class situation, any uncalled for and completely volun- tary movement of the mouth and vocal chords to the n ' th degree re- sulted in a definite violation of many classroom laws. Punishment varied from simple reprimands to the often embarrassing “leave the room " routines. However, the Choral Department was exempt from such regulations. Here, mov- ing mouths, expanding dia- phragms, and tapping feet were approved practices. Open to all freshmen. Girls ' Glee Club helped develop vocal ability. Beginning at the basic level, stu- dents learned the “how-to ' s " of singing and notereading. In addi- tion, Mr. Richard Holmberg, Musi- cal Department Director, taught the correct way to breathe when singing. Furthering their musical at- tributes, Girls ' Tenth Grade Choir continued developing their voices. Along with the other three choirs and various ensembles, soph- omore girls devoted time to polish- ing selections for the annual Christ- mas and Spring concerts. The music ranged from classical pieces to the more recent popular tunes. During fourth hour, echoes of music reached the adjoining hall- ways. Lunchtime passers were treated with traces of medleys sung by sophomores and juniors en- rolled in Gorilla Choir. While the other choirs were open to anyone interested, seniors with musical talent were selected to participate in Concert Choir. As- piring vocalists or those who just wanted to develop better pitch worked toward balanced harmony in the more complex pieces. Receiving one credit for class participation and mandatory atten- dance at both yearly concerts, many students belonged to a choir for a change of pace, an easy grade, or added musical knowl- edge. However, for others, choir seemed to be the only place where you could open your mouth wide without suffering the consequences. UPPER LEFT: Extra Rehearsal.

Puz- zled at this unusual attire for the af- ternoon, especially at Mac ' s, you begin to realize what was happen- ing. If these people in fancy clothes weren ' t early prom-goers, then through sheer logic they could only be members of a singing group or ensemble. The deduction proved correct as the hungry performers had just stopped in for a bite to eat between performances. To become a member of an en- semble, fall tryouts were held. After successfully singing the scale and parts of a song, adept choir mem- bers were selected to belong to any of eight ensembles. Occasionally class time was used for practice, however, the devoted singers spent two to three days per week before or after school re- hearsing their songs. After the pieces were perfected, the en- sembles, sponsored by Mr. Gene Fort, U.S. History Teacher, and Mr. Richard Holmberg, Music Depart- ment Director, performed at an- nual concerts, churches, banks, and Frank H. Hammond school. Mixed Ensemble and Girls ' Sextet also entertained at the Bicentennial Ball at Wicker Park Country Club. In addition to performing, Mixed Ensemble, Senior Sextet, Boys ' and Girls ' Ensembles, Girls ' and two Boys ' Barbershops, and Soph- omore Sextet competed in the Northern Indiana State Band, Or- chestra and Vocal Association (NISBOVA) contest. In local com- petition, all groups placed first. Ris- ing early, the eight ensembles trav- eled to Butler University in Indianapolis on Feb. 21, to sing at the state level where Mixed En- semble Senior Sextet, Girls ' En- semble, and Sophomore Sextet placed first. Ensembles entertained at various community functions. They re- ceived some donations which re- duced costs of musical supplies. However, money wasn ' t a major factor as these groups were formed to entertain while having fun and increasing musical ability.

When you arrive the band is play- ing, the cheerleaders are performing and the crowd is eating and talking, just like always. You don ' t notice any changes from the past few years, but you really didn ' t expect any. You overhear some college alumni reliving their high school days. They say how things have changed since their day. The fans used to cheer the team on, but now it seems to be less crowded and the ones who are there don ' t cheer. You know those alumni are right, but of course YOU wouldn ' t think of cheering. That ' s a silly thing to do. It doesn ' t help the players any, and what would other people think? There ' s your boyfriend-sitting on the bench as usual. No matter what, he still yells and cheers on this team. That sure is team spirit. Soon the excitement of the game catches on. You feel yourself becom- ing tense, nervous. Suddenly you let out a yell of " GO TEAM, BEAT HIGH- LAND! " Absolutely amazed at your- self, you slowly sink into your seat, feeling all eyes upon you. As you look around, nobody is looking at you like you expected, but instead they are following your example. Everyone is cheering and yelling. Then a funny thing happens— the basketball players are starting to catch up, they ' re im- proving, another basket, then . . . they are WINNING!

Caught up in the action of the game, senior Lorraine Longauser screams wildly as the ball is carried over the goal line. Everyone seems to be having a good time at the dance except for you.

Sec- tionals are tomorrow, you must write your " secret admirer " note and be ready to go tp-ing at 4:00 in the morn- ing. Ugh! Just as she leaves, the head of GTO tells you to be at the track at 10 a.m. You have to time tomorrow. You are worn out from the running around, and are sick of hearing people tell you to look alive and have some spirit. If they only knew.

Long hours of practice were spent by the Marching Band and Majorettes getting ready for their performances at parades, contests, concerts, and football games. The Marching Band, under the supervision of Mr. David Carmony with help from drum majors seniors Diane Becker, John Gorman and Bruce Van Inwegen, ■ received a first place rating in their division at the state contest held in Indianapolis. The contest was open to all school bands in Indiana and was sponsored by the Catholic Youth Organization. The% members marched in the Hammond Christmas Parade, Fourth of July Parade, Munster Homecoming Parade and played for fans at their three yearly concerts. In addition to bake sales, car- washes, and a dance, band members spent every Saturday morning at the Griffith Paper Packaging Plant loading trucks to earn money for new uniforms, sheet music and travel expenses. Under the guidance of sponsor Mrs. Mary Yorke, the five Majorettes and one alternate entertained the sports fans with their performances at football and basketball games. Daily practices were held during fourth hour first semester with each girl receiving one credit. For the second semester the girls practiced for the few remaining basketball games on their own time. New routines and drills were learned at the Smith and Walbridge Camp in the summer. There each girl received a superior rating in competition against majorettes from schools all over the country. To pay for the expense of uniforms, tapes, and a tape recorder, the majorettes held bake sales, a carwash and sponsored a dance at the end of the year. During the summer the girls gave baton lessons from July 14 through August 1 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Lessons were given to girls eight years and older with certificates awarded for completion at the end of the course.

Marching Band Majorettes 71 Although all music students may not have the same talents or interests, the Music Department was able to cater to their needs through six distinct bands. The Marching Band, for the second semester, split into three separate bands. Wind Ensemble which consisted of 45 selected musicians, held practices in the band room during third hour and concentrated on classical music. Concert Band, the largest with 55 members, was heard playing rock and classical music every day during the fourth hour. Class was held fifth hour for the 20 members of Varsity Band which specialized in individual instruction. Together the bands played a majority of modern contemporary music at three annual concerts held on December 16, March 18, and May 18. Any band member could join the Pep Band which provided music for pep rallies, basketball games, and football halftimes. During the practices held after school, members practiced everything from popular rock to jazz tunes. Besides conducting the three concert bands, Mr. Carmony also supervised Stage Band on Thursday nights, ten selected students performed Big Band music at community functions throughout the school year. Conducted by Mr. Karl Linden, 13 string students and band members made up the orchestra. The orchestra, whose size doubled last year ' s, practiced classical music during second hour. A concert was held on December 9, which included the Middle School Orchestra. Members also attended a Hammond Area Youth Work Shop to increase their music ability and on the understanding of the various types of music.

" Hope you enjoyed your stay in our territory. We ' ll expect you to explore more of our country again for another six weeks. " Where am I now? English Literature. It looks as if I ' ll need my notebook and pen for protection against all of these literary expressions.

Exploring 79 WANTED: Interested students to help grade papers, answer phones, type, and various other duties for school departments. A grade based on ability and performance, with the addition of one-half credit per semester will be given. Areas need- ing assistants: Audio Visual, office, guidance, resource center, Biology and Chemistry lab, English, Art, Foreign Language, and Social Studies. Secretarial duties were lightened by student help in both the office and Guidance Department. Six of- fice aides assisted by answering phones, taking messages, and fil- ing. Guidance was helped out by nine students who addressed enve- lopes, corrected schedules, and handed out college applications. Knowledge of the Dewey Deci- mal System and location of books and magazines was mandatory in becoming an effective library aide. After being tested on this informa- tion, the assistants were ready to help Mrs. Cheryl )oseph, head li- brarian, to shelve books and maga- zines, cut out newspaper articles for the verticle file, and read the shelves by checking the order of books and their due-date cards. Aside from the usual grading of papers, distribution of tests, and watching lab, reading, and testing activities, lab assistants made their first contribution to the Home- coming parade by entering a car. Using " Monty Python ' s Flying Cir- cus " as their theme, the lab assis- tants took second place in the car competition. Audio Visual helpers assisted Miss Marge Gonce by working on overhead projectors, delivering tape recorders and film projectors to classrooms, and setting up spotlights and sound systems for various assemblies and pep rallies. Teacher aides ' responsibilities in the areas of English, Foreign Lan- guage, Social Studies, journalism. Science, and Art ranged from fixing easels, typing tests, making coffee, running errands, and sometimes even teaching a class. Students who applied for these positions received not only credits but an added learning experience. Faculty members benefited be- cause of the extra help. Overall, the assistants were indispensable, and the teachers " just could not do without them! " TOP RIGHT: Rest stop.

Sport and fun were the two reasons why the 80 club members came faithfully each week and exchanged their $2.25 for three league games. Mr. Jeffrey Craves, Bowling Club sponsor, with help from seniors Laurie Echterling, treasurer and Donna Schmidt, secretary, calculated the average, handicap, and total pins of all the members and the standings of the 20 teams. The season was wrapped up with a banquet in May. Awards were presented to deserving bowlers under the following categories: first and second highest average, high game, high series, and first, second, and third place teams. Students interested in bowling were able to become involved in a school organization that was usually only associated with outside leagues. Promoting the game of chess and the study of good sportsmanship were the Chess Club ' s main goals as stated in their constitution. The ten members met every Thursday after school in room 109 to challenge each other and practice for tournaments. The team finished in third place at the Valporaiso tourney and individual firsts were netted by freshmen Mark Mihalo and Dave Lobeck at the Hammond Meet. Senior Pete Haines, president, handled all club activities with help from his staff of officers: vice president and student senate representative, Lisa Makarewich; treasurer, freshman Jeff Beatty; and secretary, senior Sue Weinberg. The members were sponsored by Mr. Jeff Graves, and biology teacher Mr. Brian Young, who helped teach new strategies and set tournament dates. RIGHT: X marks the spot.

Among these varied organizations were the Syn- chronized Swim Club, the Ski Club, and a new club for backgammon en- thusiasts. Students with diversi- fied interests could now enjoy the benefits derived from a school sponsored club. Despite freezing temperatures and the late night availability of the pool, the Synchronized Swim Club practiced three times a week in preparation for their annual performance. Various tricks and manuevers such as the submarine, kip, and ballet legs, had to be learned and perfected, while cos- tumes had to be sewn before the show could go on. The performances held on April 30 and May 1 involved both in and out of water routines to musical scores including Pink Panther, Tubular Bells and Rubber Ducky. The backgammon craze has spread not only throughout the country, but to various high schools. The ancient game is enjoying a rebirth in popularity and united students in the formation of a new club. After approval and a membership drive serious backgampaon playing began. A weekend trip to Sugarload Mountain highlighted the activi- ties of the Ski Club. The 40 mem- bers, vacationed on the snowy Michigan slopes, as part of the non-school sponsored trip. A $75 fee was charged to each partici- pant, which included transporta- tion, lodging, lift tickets, and the choice of either down-hill or cross county skiing. Whether they were interested in getting away for the weekend, im- proving their backgammon game, or water ballet, students no longer had to step beyond the school limits to get involved.

Most people don ' t realize that clowns go to school and learn how to paint a face, wear baggy clothes and fall on their faces without getting hurt. Princess Elizabeth Alexandria, as a child, probably trained for her debut into society by enrolling in charm school and learning “queenly " etiquette so that she could take over England ' s throne as Queen. Swimming lap after lap in a school pool becomes tedious for the swimmer. This training becomes important if he wants to earn a gold medal in the upcoming Olympics. Although a student may not be a member of a circus, royal family or Olympic team, he must train for his future. Some students plan for careers as lawyers, secretaries or carpenters, while others for the domestic lifestyle. Whichever the choice, special courses were offered to assist their decision. In preparation for a business career, students enrolled in Sales and Marketing, Accounting, Business Law or General Business. They were confronted with everyday problems of business life, like the handling of personal funds and the sales competition between businessmen After completing Sales and Marketing, one developed skills as a salesman under actual working conditions offered by Distributive Education, (DE). A person could work in many places, such as a shoe store or book store, where they learned to deal with customers and money or finances. Cooperative Office Practice gave students opportunities for on-the-job training through the Office Education Association, (OEA). Many of these students received part-time jobs in banks, insurance agencies and other area businesses.

Typing I involved learning keyboard positions and basic typing skills, along with increasing typing speed. The format for Typing II, III, IV was designed for those wanting more advanced typing skills for secretarial work. Students completed business letters, carbons and manuscripts. Shorthand I and II taught students to read and write symbols in place of words, enabling them to write letters and take notes at a faster pace. Computer Math students had the opportunity to work with data processing systems while learning the fundamentals of computers. This class is a basis for future computer technicians. For students interested in professions as carpenters, electronic technicians, architects and mechanical engineers, Industrial Arts Department offered a wide variety of courses. With the help of protractors, compasses and rulers, Drafting students designed buildings, besides learning lettering and sketching techniques. Automobiles and engines held the interest of those in Power Mechanics as they attempted to make them run again. In the field of Electronics, students studied transistor radios and the vacuum tube. By sawing, sanding and pounding, projects for Woods were constructed, such as tables and cabinets, while Introduction to Metals allowed students to experiment with projects made of metal. Inter-Personal Relations, Foods and Clothing played the major roles in domestic training. Inter-Personal Relations students learned of marriage and the family and how to make them both survive. Students in Foods and Clothing actually learned how to provide for a family by planning meals and sewing outfits. School may not train students for the circus, high society, or the Olympics, however, it does provide training for many careers desired by students.

With help from Mrs. Pat Vadas, Mr. Kenneth Kirkpatrick, and Mr. Dan Keown, students received on- the-job training in two classroom situations, Office Educational As- sociation (OEA) and Distributive Education (DE). DE involved taking Sales and Marketing as a junior, joining Dis- tributive Education Clubs of Amer- ica, and paying $3.00 dues.

Eventually immigrant workers, many of them teenagers, had to survive long hours laboring in factories. Today times have changed. Stu- dents no longer have to work. Those who do have a job often work to save money for college or to gain job experience for a future profession. Through two organiza- tions, Cold Teens and Future Med- ical Health Careers Club (FMHCC) students were able to gain knowl- edge for medical and physchologi- cal careers. With Gold Teens in its second year of operation, senior Jean Corns, president and junior Diane Meyering, secretary-treasurer planned activities with their new sponsor, Miss Penny Roberts. Besides holding meetings at the Munster Public Library, many of the members gave up their extra time to help the Men ' s Ward at Beatty Memorial Hospital in West- ville, a few nights a month. The 20 members assisted the men in writ- ing letters to friends and family and talking to them to cure their loneliness. Another club, also with new sponsors Dr. and Mrs. Charles Eg- natz, helped members of the FMHCC to continue their interest in the field of medicine. Extra-curricular activities are needed to compliment the learning process. FMHCC supplied inter- ested students with opportunity to investigate facilities not covered in the classroom. The 20 members visited the Radiology Department at Community Hospital, the Ther- apy Department at St. Margaret ' s Hospital, the Nuclear Medical Cen- ter at Dyer Hospital, and the Eli Lilly Drug Company in Indianapolis to watch the production of pills.

Can ' t I stay home and watch TV? " " You go to learn and to become smart, so that someday you can go to college, and become even smarter. That ' s the only way to become successful. " This is the beginning— the beginning of twelve years of preparing for college, preparing for a future. Some students plan a career without a college education, but a large per cent of the students aim for a higher education. So what does one do to attain acceptance into a reputable college? Do you need only the basic courses required for high school graduation? As incoming freshmen received their first orientation lecture from the guidance department, they were introduced to various basic curriculum outlines for their upcoming four years of high school. For those who sought a clerical or secretarial job, schedules including courses like typing or shorthand were suggested. Students who wanted a college prep schedule were advised to take classes such as two years of a foreign language. Courses in German, Spanish, and French were offered, and many language students progressed to fifth and sixth year levels. To fulfill the semester of the extra English requirement, most college bound seniors took either World Literature or English Literature. Of course, these were open to all seniors. Other than a year of Biology, students are not required to take other science courses. Chemistry and Physics courses were, nevertheless, filled by students seeking a good background in (Continued on pg. %) 94 Preparing BELOW: Modern Technology.

Contrary to the accepted belief that science classes are generally boring, and limited to long lectures and tedious assignments, students found enjoyment in their lab experiments. In Advanced Biology students performed actual operations on live mice. Project Biology offered students a mixture of pleasure and learning, including a camping trip to the Florida Keys during spring vacation. Students also continued study in mathmatics after the required year. % Preparing An initial atmosphere of total confusion prevailed in Geometry class as proofs were introduced. It seemed that just after the students began to pick up the knack of proving theorems, the course ended. As the following fall arrived, mathematicians moved to advanced algebra classes, and there often became lost in the mdist of X and Y equations. Trigonometric functions were the next step on the ladder, involving sine, cosine, and tangent functions. To top it off, asymptotes (ASYNPTOTES?) were added to the art of graphing these circle functions. Finally, they reached a college level Calculus course which used Euclidean Geometry. So, with a high school diploma, students were ready to enter another four years of study. " Hey, Mom, can I take the tuition money and buy a car? I ' ll take a year off before I go to school again, or maybe I ' ll get a job at the gas station. " No, go to college. It ' s better! " " Well, Mom, ... I can ' t get in!

Wait till I tell the guys! Let ' s see, we have to make room reservations, buy tickets for the meet, and fill the car with gas, plus extra spending money for food and souveniers. It ' s sure a good thing I worked overtime last week, I ' d never be able to afford all this. I ' m not quite as fortunate as John, who ' s parents pay his way for things like this. I even have to put money away for college and pay half my car insurance. Oh well, at least I found a job. " Some students are fortunate enough to have their parents foot the bill, however, for those less fortunate students, some money-making means must be acquired. As many have already found out, job hunting can be a discouraging task. Due to limited amounts of expe- rience and priorities to those older than high school age, jobs for teens are scarce. Such occupations as mak- ing french fries at chain restaurants, pumping gas, carrying out groceries or selling clothes in local stores sum up the student ' s job opportunities. When all else fails, students can still resort to the more minor jobs. These include snow-shoveling, babysitting, grasscutting, and delivering newspa- pers. In the meantime, they can still continue the drastic search for a job with a little higher standards and bet- ter wages. " Why me, why me, it never fails, just when everything seems to be per- fect, something always goes wrong. It ' s just not fair, of all weekends to get called in to work, it had to be this one.

The Swim team dove in the swimming pool as they were given a trophy for scoring the most points to win state. While athletically inclined students work hard to achieve their goals and trophies and ribbons; students showing high scholastic abilities did the same, as shown by membership in National Honor Society and Quill and Scroll. Better known as the " Brownie Club " , due to trying to get to know the teachers better, National Honor Society required more from the students than a mere inborn intelligence. By following national rules, NHS initiated those juniors and seniors who displayed high character quality, showed leadership, were active in school activities and had maintained a 3.2 grade average. Profits from a bake sale, sucker sale, car wash, and dance helped the 26 NHS members to hold an induction ceremony for the 90 new members that were initiated into the club in April. The profits also went to pay for certificates, membership cards, gold seals on diplomas, a $300 scholarship which was given to one of the members, and the traditional graduation gold tassels. An honorary club for those students maintaining a 2.7 grade point average and having made major contributions to the Publications Department was Quill and Scroll. Last year ' s initiates held a bake sale in April to help pay for candles, centerpieces and flowers for the Publications Banquet April 19, at which time new members were initiated. Good grades, positive qualities and working on separate journalistic media, instead of active participation in the club, helped those students of Quill and Scroll to obtain an honored position. Outstanding foreign language students had the opportunity to be sent abroad for a two month period in the summer. A strong record in German or Spanish, was the first criteria for the German and Spanish honors program. With their teachers ' approval, the students then took a test at Indiana University Northwest which tested their ability to use the skills they learned in class. If their scores were high enough, they submitted applications to IU for consideration for the trips abroad. The students were then notified of their acceptance and interview dates were set. After this long process was completed, Kay Samels for Spanish, and Maureen Ahn, Rhonda Brauer, Jane Marshall, Nan Sutter, and Dan Zajac for German were notified of their qualification for a summer in either San Luis Potosi, Mexico, or Krefeld, Germany. Based on a faculty vote, senior Kathy Costello was given the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Good Citizenship Award. The DAR award was based on qualities of dependability, patriotism, service, and leadership. All the senior girls ' names were submitted to teachers and the girl with the most votes was chosen DAR winner. After long years of study or involvement in certain areas, whether they be in sports, academics, or community life, these students were recognized for their accomplishments through these honorary organizations. 100 LEFT: QUILL AND SCROLL: FRONT ROW: Mike Young, Ethna Sinisi, Cindy Aranowski.

WSusi ' G w© mi Dial D2 lb© HDDs© f Life in a foreign country would offer a type of language, food, and recreation different than your own. French would be spoken instead of English, Bratwurst eaten in place of hamburgers, and soccer watched rather than football. Learning about the difference between various cul- tures was the main purpose of both the American Field Service (AFS) and the French Club. Affiliated with the adult AFS chapter and sponsored by the Munster Rotary Club, a new orga- nization, the American Field Ser- vice, was formed. Sponsored by Mrs. Helga Meyer and Mrs. Anne Whiteley, foreign language teach- ers, the club was open to anyone interested in international culture and foreign exchange programs. Fund-raisers reduced the cost of sending a student abroad for either a summer or a year. Members can- vassed house-to-house over a pe- riod of four weekends to sell cou- pons for Burger King whoppers, at the price of a dollar per ticket. Profits of $1025.00 helped pay for recreational activities and an inter- national weekend where AFS for- eign exchange students stayed with club members in the area. However, it was not all work as AFS members attended a hay-ride, planned a surprise party for senior Rune Myhre, the foreign exchange student from Fauske, Norway, at- tended three Christmas programs at the Museum of Science and In- dustry, and hosted an international night. Plans were formulated by 25 French Club members, under the sponsorship of Mrs. Alyce Wack- owski, to dine at the " Magic Pan " , a restaurant in Chicago, for crepes and to attend the " Christmas Round the World " exhibit at the museum. Afterwards, their taste buds were treated with French food. Students found that they did not have to dine at exotic restau- rants to grab a bite of French food as French Club ' s bake sales during lunch hour contained not only the usual brownies, but also French delicacies of cream puffs and bon- bons. Proceeds from the bake sales financed the bus for field trips. Furthering their study, members looked forward to a five week trip of France. During the summer they toured the Riviera, University of Nice and Paris along with stops, in Brittany, Normandy and London. Insight beyond the borders of a student ' s home life was provided by AFS and French Club as they participated in activities which fa- miliarized them with people ' s life- styles worldwide.

Nobody loses! And for only one ticket and a little luck you could be the proud owner of this loveable over-sized goldfish! " All it took was a few hours to transform the fieldhouse into an arena filled with games, prizes, clowns, and fun. Th is year ' s car- nival was sponsored by the Se- nior Class under the aid of Mr. Jerry Schroeder. During the afternoon before the carnival, high school stu- dents dressed as clowns visited the elementary schools and spread carnival spirit by beckon- ing the students to attend. The clowns proved successful the next day when the doors opened and the majority of the attenders were elementary schoolers. Youngsters had a chance to try their luck in a large variety of games in hopes of winning a prize. Thirteen booths, which were run by different classes and organizations within the school, helped to complete the carnival. Some of the most pop- ular attractions were the jail, the goldfish toss, and the moonwalk. This year the jail was spon- sored by the AFS club. Students found it especially fun to throw teachers and even principal Dr. Karl Hertz into the jail cell. The unusually large goldfish in col- ored water attracted many at- tenders into trying their luck at the goldfish toss sponsored by Project Biology. Another big at- traction was the Moonwalk, the airfilled tramp-like dome run by the Junior Class. Even the base- ball team couldn ' t resist the temptation to take a moonwalk. Even though the crowd was smaller than last year, the carni- val was a success. By the end of the day, profits reached $1650. The money was divided evenly between the Junior and Senior Class. . 2 ABOVE: Ready, aim . . .

After being on the beach all day, I am so burned! I can ' t believe Prom is over already. It was only a few weeks ago that I was start- ing to get ready for it. Getting my dress, flowers and tickets seemed to take so long, but ac- tually it came pretty fast! Though it took many weeks to prepare, Prom was suddenly over in one night— May 15. The junior Class, sponsored by math teacher Mr. George Pollingue, was responsible for the Prom activities. Voting for the theme, " Precious and Few " , was the first of many steps. The voting took place during all junior his- tory classes. Committees for decorations, bids, tickets, pic- tures and favors were formed; chairmen were selected and the place was chosen. Permission slips were a new idea and were required by all those who at- tended so parents would know where Prom was being held. After changing their minds many times, decorations were under way. Starting Friday after school, long hours were spent re-doing the cafeteria. Every- thing was finally completed by 5:30 Saturday afternoon. After visiting pre-prom par- ties, couples entered the corri- dor by the Industrial Arts area and checked in at 9:00 p.m. At this time bids, which were ac- tually Prom programs, were handed out to each couple. The entrance of the cafeteria was transformed into an archway with colored lights and couples passed through it and pro- ceeded down a pathway leading to a fountain with running water where a mirror ball was hanging. Other decorations consisted of more archways, trellises, murals and floral centerpieces.

Once again it was required for couples to sign in at the door. After a brief rest from a buffet dinner, couples took to the dance floor and to the tab- letops while Humpsucker pro- vided the music. Near the end of the evening, the band started to play the theme song, but after the first verse they quit, for they did not know how to perform it. After a final encore, the music stopped and Prom was over. At 4:30 a.m., weary couples went to their cars and headed towards home where they prepared for a long day at the beach. TOP: Moments alone.

Some were glad for that day to come; others weren ' t so happy; but all felt a sense of pride when their diploma was safely in their hands. May 30 was the final get to- gether for the Class of 76. Never again would they be called high school students. Baccalaureate was held at two in the after- noon. After the processional and invocation, given by Class Presi- dent Tom Etling, readings were given by Becky Breaz, Michelle Mezey, Lois Hand, Shari Smith and Rev. Theodore J. Mens of St. Thomas More. To the sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance " , 443 seniors, robed in blue and white with bi- centennial red, white and blue tassles and medallions, entered the fieldhouse at 8 p.m. for commencement exercises.

Going on to regionals, the team placed fifth out of 16 teams and missed traveling to state by only 18 points. Co-captains of the team were seniors Rich Simeoni and Tom Hafner, while sophomore Dean Boldin served as team manager. Most Valuable Runner Award went to Tom Hafner, with Greg Bobin receiving the Most Valuable Freshman. Junior Carl Serna was the recipient of the Most Improved Award by moving from eighth position to third position on the junior varsity team. “Well, I guess it won ' t be so bad.

I just know we ' ll be the conference champs this year with a clean record of 10-0. Being out there ... on that football field . . . under those lights, wow, it just does something to me! " ex- claimed Joe Jock. " Gee, I just don ' t know about going out for the swim team. Think of all those practices. Believe it or not, some are even at 6:30 in the morning! Imagine getting out of a nice, cozy, warm bed and jumping into icy, cold water. No way! plus, my school work might suffer as much as my body, " thought Ozzie Ordinary. " Hey man, just ' cuz I ' m 6 ' 9 " does not mean I ' m going out for the bas- ketball team. That coach would make me get a haircut! I ' d lose my image! " argued Freddie Freak. " Sure, I ' d like to be on drill team or cheerleading. But I just do not know if I ' d fit in with those girls. Look at all the time they put in with performing, practices, and money-making projects. I don ' t think I ' d be able to go out in front of a crowd like that, " contemplated a hopeful Rhonda Rah. Although many shy away from the thought of team tryouts or athletic in- volvements, 20% of the student body were involved in some form of the sports program. Approximately 300 students were involved as players, managers, or trainers with an addi- tional 100 supporting and backing the teams as band, cheerleader, and drill team members. Through the work of 31 coaches, ten boy ' s varsity sports and seven girl ' s varsity sports exists. Different sports have different pol- icies concerning " Team Tryouts. " It is considered a " sensitive area " to coaches who must " cut " players when choosing their squad. " Cutting is done only when absolutely neces- sary, " stated Athletic Director John Friend. " This is done because the faci- lities and staff are limited. " Football, boy ' s and girl ' s swimming, wrestling, and boy ' s and girl ' s track are varsity sports which students do not have to " try out " to make the team. Yet, in or- der to stay on the team, work, time and effort must be shown on each in- dividual ' s part. The other varsity sports, boy ' s and girl ' s tennis, basket- ball, and golf, soccer, girl ' s gymnas- Tryout performance. Competing on the op- tional level for the fourth consecutive year, senior Gayle Rovai executes a split straddle seat on the balance beam during her routine. tics and vol- leyball, re- quire tryouts to be placed on the team. Tryouts may put a great physical as well as an emotional strain on the individual since much work is involved to condition the player and get him in shape. Simple jogging around the track on the first day of practice may result in sore muscles and aching shin splits. Weather is an important factor for the outdoor sports. Imagine exercising football drills and scrimmages in 90 degree heat, or playing soccer on a muddy field with a northernly March wind. Open blisters are oflen results from gymnastic, baseball, and tennis work- outs. Often the competition may be so tough, that many individuals just give up and walk out of tryouts. They wonder if it is really worth it. Eligibility standards must also be met. While all coaches give players their specific regulations, general rules must be followed. Most disliked by the male athletes is the hair grooming rule. Hair must be kept off the collar, ears, and eyebrows, sideburns must not pass below earlobes, and mus- taches are not permitted. Emotional strain is placed on the individual since passing work must be achieved in four solids. Also, no smoking or drink- ing is allowed during training or the season. Although it varies with the different sports, two to three weeks are given in order to prepare for tryouts. While tryouts are in session, a coach looks for many qualities in a player but es- pecially attitude and ability. Natural ability is looked for and usually shows through drills. exer- cises, and scrimmages. A coach looks for the athletes who possess a good atti- tude in all situations. Scholastic ratings are also taken into consideration. Some individuals would like to try out for a team but don ' t because they can ' t handle the discipline, don ' t have enough time, or don ' t get along with the coach. The fact that Rhonda Rah cheered joe Jock and his teammates on to a co-championship conference title, that Ozzie Ordinary contributed to the swim team ' s success, and that Freddie Freak lost his image proves that despite all the arguments against team tryouts and involvement, the student body is interested. When you think of your basic cheerleader, you probably imagine the peppy, popular girl with the short skirt, bobby socks, saddle shoes, and bulky sweater. Little do most people realize that at 4:30 am these same girls sometimes trade in their uniforms for coats and snea- kers and prepare themselves for an early morning job ... T-Ping the houses of school athletes. Once again, the Varsity cheer- leaders attended the National Cheerleading Association Camp at Illinois University. Despite the in- juries and sicknesses they encoun- tered, the cheerleaders managed to bring home a variety of new ideas for routines and cheers. These ideas were put to use during the practices held every Tuesday after school, under the supervision of new sponsor, Mrs. Victoria Cooper. For the first time in Munster Highs ' history, the Varsity Cheer- leaders became a part of the an- nual Fourth of July Parade. Their participation in the parade helped promote Booster Club Membership. “Vim, vigor, and vitality, " was needed by the “rahs " to help en- courage school spirit. With the aide of six senior lettermen, the cheer- leaders brought out the spirit and sportsmanship of the student body. Profits from bake sales, a Homecoming mum sale, a rum- mage sale, and a dance, enabled cheerleaders to purchase decora- tions for players ' houses and paint and paper for victory signs. Next time you hear the shout " G-O-O-D L-U-C-K, " remember that isn ' t the start of the cheer- leaders ' job. Their work to help boost the teams to a victory starts much earlier, sometimes even as early as 4:30 a.m. 128 Cheerleaders UPPER LEFT: Riding Duo.

All the football players wore jerseys and jeans to school while cheerleaders and pep club mem- bers were busy hanging team sup- porting signs. All of a sudden you, an ordinary dressed student clad in blue jeans and a shirt, were sur- rounded by a number of girls wear- ing red and white uniforms, white bobby socks, and saddle shoes, jackets with the letters D-R-l-L-L T-E-A-M flashed before your eyes. The importance of the day took its effect and you became enthralled in spirit. Although Pep Club had been plagued with lack of interest in past years, a new club was revised. Any- one with just an ounce of spirit was eligible to join. Stretched across the commons, paintbrushes in hand, members transformed plain pieces of white paper into signs proclaiming an upcoming victory. For those with limited artistic abil- ity but lots of spirit, backing the teams was as important as the game itself. Sounds of kazoos filled the air while others used their vocal chords screaming cheers and creating a feeling of enthusiasm throughout the bleachers. However, Pep Club did not end with the sound of the buzzer sig- naling the game ' s end. Sponsored by Mrs. Jill Koelling, art teacher, members also were involved in the sale of helium balloons, pep but- tons, and num erous bake sales. Although Pep Club was open to all interested, tryouts were held for Drill Team. Forty girls and two al- ternates were judged on appear- ance and coordination. Drill Team performed in half-time shows, pa- rades, and pep rallies. In a different type of class, elected officers were responsible for the 4th hour class. Routines were arranged and practiced step by step during class with extra practices before school. The hard work and hours of practice faced the true test when the Drill Team appeared on the field. As halftime grew nearer, members became more nervous and difficult routines were quickly rehearsed to assure perfection. Meanwhile, the unsus- pecting crowd was oblivious to the diverse whisperings on the field of " which hand goes up? " and " when do I come in? " . In addition to performing, mem- bers sold suckers, held bake sales, and sponsored a car wash in the summer. Profits of these fund-rai- sers financed the cost of their first annual banquet and senior charms. Arousing spirit-filled crowds, performing in the half-time shows, and backing the football and bas- ketball teams onto victory were some accomplishments of Pep Club and Drill Team. However, even more importantly, these groups were a symbol of spirit. Sometimes, this spirit became con- tagious, and you, an ordinary dressed student, can ' t help but scream for those guys out on the playing field or floor. UPPER RIGHT: Santa ' s helper.

Sometimes the idea of getting Dad ' s boat out and cruising around Lake Michigan on water skis came up and was put to use. Maybe one can recall cool evenings of bicycle riding or walks through the park. Many afternoons of sitting in an air conditioned house were often spent watching reruns of " The Three Stooges, " " The Flintstones, " or a favorite baseball team. In early August, 92 prospective football players dropped these thoughts and started concentrating twice a day on weight lifting, running sprints, learning plays, and practicing. All of this activity took place with full equipment including pads, shorts, pants, jerseys, and helmets. And to think that on those 90-degree days, someone else was hot in only shorts and a t-shirt, or a skimpy bikini! Contrary to past seasons, there was an equal amount of strong and weak points.

" Most teams would be happy with a 6-4 overall record and a co-championship conference title, but we thought we ' d come out on the very top this year. We set higher goals at Munster than most schools do. " Injuries were a major setback to the Stangs once again. Two senior tailbacks were injured early in the season and this left a weakened of- fense. Yet the defensive team lived up to their expectations, as senior offensive lineman Brett Helm captured All-State honors on the United Press International and Associated Press polls, while senior linebacker John O ' Connell received Honorable Mention on the UPI poll and senior defensive lineman David Wade received Honor- able Mention on both the UPI and AP polls. The season started off on a bad note with Val- paraiso and Hobart defeating the Mustangs in the two opening games. " The Valpo game was our most significant one throughout the whole season. This loss was a deep and bitter blow considering we outplayed them statistically. Los- ing in overtime 21-14 is always hard to accept, but even worse is the fact that Valpo went on to become state champs, " mused Coach Friend.

They tend to be overly muscular. The girls are often referred to as she- men— muscular, masculine, unattrac- tive young ladies who have some- thing wrong with their hormones, w hich is why they become athletes. The boys, on the other hand, become the most sought-after males in school, as they strut down the halls wearing their sporty gear. The first major decision in the day of a jock is what jersey to wear. They are plagued by an overabundance of numbered shirts, lettered sweaters, and grass-stained jeans. And who could forget their ever-popular let- termen jackets, complete with all- sport medals? Many feel it ' s a bit im- practical to wear a wool jacket every- day. ... in rain, snow, wind or heat. After all, 90 degrees is pretty hot for a jacket of any kind! Female athletes, not to be outdone by the guys, can be found clad in painters ' pants topped with letter sweaters or hooded sweat- shirts; refusing to be seen in a " sissy " skirt. Of course, aside from the instant recognition they get with their threads, a day can ' t go by in any sports season without some jock ' s picture, name, or life story in the pa- per. Because of this constant ex- posure, they have their choice of girls every night. Anyone would swoon to be able to go out with a boy jock; but a girl jock has to face the opposite sit- uation. No one wants to go out with a muscular monster! The boy ' s charm does more for them than getting girls, it helps them get a diploma. This list could go on and on, but is it true that all jocks fit this descrip- tion? On the contrary, most jocks fit only one or two of these stereotyped characteristics; and most girl athletes do not fit any of the labels placed upon them. How many times have you really seen the imaginary muscu- lar, full bodied, masculine, sharp-fea- tured “butch " we tend to associate with those girls who have and use their athletic ability? The double stan- dard we have concerning girls and boys in athletics is not only unfair, but often untrue.

The Let- termen ' s club was forced to step aside and share the limelight with the newly formed Letterwomen ' s club. Girls who participated in var- sity sports were awarded for the first time with a letter, which they proudly displayed on a bright red sweater similiar to their male counterparts. The two organiza- tions honored and united students who expended time, energy, and effort practicing for and competing in interscholastic sports. Coach Mike Niksic sponsored the 105 members of the Let- termen ' s club. Eligibility require- ments included paying $1.00 dues and earning a varsity letter in at least one of the 10 sports spon- sored by the school. The annual dues and profits made by selling programs helped pay for the jack- ets and sweaters which repre- sented their achievements. " Jocks " were often seen helping around the school and at various athletic contests. Their duties involved sweeping floors, ushering, and sup- porting cheerleaders in their efforts to spread enthusiasm. The Letterwomen ' s club, which met once a month, had rules and regulations much like those of the male athletes. The members had to earn a letter in a varsity sport and sell programs in girls events to earn money for the treasury. The money was used to set up a Hall of Fame for the girls in the hallway adjacent to the Resource Center and pay for the trophies awarded to the most valuable girl on each team. The club was responsible for setting up the Athletic Award Banquet for girls held in the spring. Here, Ms. Mary Beth Stonebraker, sponsor and physical education teacher presented the distinguished players with the awards. Guys and girls, although com- peting on different teams, were recognized for their achievements. The sweaters were proof positive that with the intervention of the fe- minists, girls no longer had to hide their athletic ability.

Not to men- tion first place in sectionals, first place in region- al, and a trip to the state meet! Surprising everyone but themselves, the girl ' s volleyball team upset defending champion Gavit to secure the first regional championship in the school ' s volleyball history. Under first year coach Sydnie Meltzer, and as- sistant coach Bob Shinkan, a new type of team playing and strategy was introduced. Striving for consistency in serving and receiving, working on endurance and mobility, along with working on the basic fundamentals, helped introduce a new type of offense which eventually improve the player ' s abilities. " The whole team has come a long way; a lot of new things had to be learned. It feels good to get as far as we did. The player ' s accomplished something they were sure they couldn ' t do. I think we ' ve set a precedent for future years, " re- called Miss Meltzer. Losses to Highland, Gavit, and two losses to Morton earlier in the season didn ' t stop the team from advancing to sectional play. Avenging these losses enabled the girl ' s to capture the sectional crown for the second time since 1973. In the Lake Suburban Conference, a co-championship was shared with Highland.

The Girl ' s Swim Team gained acclaim with their first state swim crown at Muncie ' s Ball State University, continuing the tradition the boy ' s began with their accumulation of state trophies. Coached by Miss Betty Liebert and assisted by Miss Gloria Kemp, the Shehorses compiled a total of 341 points over distant second place Merrillville with 225 points to capture the sectional title at Valparaiso High School. Nine swimmers, one diver, and both relay teams qualifed for the state meet the next weekend. At the state meet, freshman Janet Niksic set a new state record in the 400 yard freestyle at 4:16.1 during preliminary competition.

You open up the locker room door and with a burst of energy from the Carnation Instant Breakfast, you jump into the frigid water. Only ten more laps to go, turn, you have to win!

One more lap, think positive, you know you can win! " I planned on four and I will Plan on five " , stated Coach Jon Jepson after the Seahorses managed to bring home the state title for the fourth consecutive year. Backed by avid fans and a strong desire to win, the Seahorses compiled a total of 161 points. With individuals placing in 14 spots, the team edged rival South Bend Riley by 10 points. Although the 400 yard free relay team was disqualified for a false start, the Seahorses still scored in every other event. Junior Dave Bombar was the only team member to score an individual title. For the second straight year, Dave won the 100 yard butterfly in a new state record of 52.483.

" I really like all the enthusiasm there is for swimming, all the signs and cheers really helped us psyche up for State " , stated captain Scott Sutter. At Sectionals, the team qualified 22 swimmers, both relay teams, and 3 divers, which was the most they had ever sent to State. Holding the annual " Munster Relay Meet " , the Seahorses placed second, just a few points be- hind Riley. They also fell later in the season to top-ranked Riley in a duel meet with the score of 82-90. They ended their season with an overall 13-1 record. Practicing each morning and after school, the Seahorses prepared for the Sectional and State meets. Participating in the New Trier Invitational and the Hinsdale College events, the Seahorses placed first and second respectively.

Going into action with a 9-11 pre-tournament record, the ' Stangs were not considered the favorites. " While going into the sectional, we were rated fourth. Based on past performances, that was about right, " stated Coach Mike Copper. But we weren ' t as bad as a 9-11 mark would indicate. We lost a lot of close ones; the kids finally knew how to react in a clutch situation. " But after defeating Merrillville in opening round of play, 64-51, and then putting down Crown Point, 69-67, in the semi-final ga me, which was never separated by more than one point at quarter breaks, things began to look better. Backed by the screaming student body, Grinder Fan Club, and the supportive parents, the Mustangs took revenge on arch-rival Highland in championship action. Highland, who upset undefeated Lake Central in the first game, and later Griffith, nipped the ' Stangs by one point in regular season action. While playing in a pressure-filled, capacity-packed gymnasium, Head Coach Mike Copper ' s crew pulled through with a 65-59 " sweet " revengeful victory over the Trojans to win their first sectional basketball tournament since 1969.

Copper attributed this to the fact that " maybe the kids just played looser away from home where there was less pressure. " For the Mustangs, the regular season ended with a flourish as they bounced back and were victorious in their last three games, finishing with their best record since 1969.

With the goal protected, senior Rick Eisner attempts to stall his Andrean opponent. Although the game of hockey has been around since the 1870 ' s, this was only the third year for the hockey team to participate, due to the lack of interest and high cost of equipment. Since hockey is not a school sponsored sport, the team had a great number of obstacles to overcome. The greatest difficulty was the cost which they met by raising $1,000 in donations from sponsors, to pay for league fees, practice, sessions and team jerseys. Except for the jerseys, the team furnished all of their own equipment. Under the direction of Coach Dan Keown the team officially began practice on October 23 at Omni 41. Practices were held every Thursday afternoon for one hour. The four months of practice helped captain senior Dave Spurlock and his teammates send the season with 14-2-2 in dual meets. Practice paid off for sophomores Eric Compton and Bob Tompulis as they improved their skating and became more aggressive throughout the year. Dave was the league ' s leading scorer with 48 goals and 19 assists for a total of 67 points. Senior Scott Hannock was third in league scoring with 23 goals and 17 assists for a total of 40 points. The team sent three players and Coach Keown to compete in the Western-Division-All-Star game. Dave, Scott, and senior goalie Ron Mola were the representatives. Ron was the All-Star goalie; his goal against average for the regular season was 2.00, second best in the league. Besides regular season games, the team competed in the Northern Indiana High School Hockey League, and placed second overall. The team ' s spirits were let down when they lost in the opening game of the state meet to South Bend Saint joe with a 4-1 finish. Some lost confidence was regained when they won the opening game of the NIHSHL by beating Bishop Noll 9-1. In the second round of the meet Andrean beat them with a 2-1 score in last minute overtime. Advancing into the third round against Thornridge, they were defeated with a 4- 3 score to lose the championship. Looking towards next year Coach Keown said “We will lose half the team to graduation this year, so next year there will be plenty of openings. It will be a rebuilding year for Munster Hockey " .

With the ever increasing popularity of girl ' s gymnastics, the Mustang gymnastic dynasty re- ceived a stiff challenge throughout the season.

Under the coaching of Ms. Kathy Olivotto and Ms. Sydnie Meltzer, the Beginning Level finished with a 5-4 record; Intermediate level completed the season at 5-4 and the Optional Level com- piled a 8-1 season record. At the Munster hosted Lake Suburban Confer- ence meet, the gymnasts captured all three titles. A co-conference championship was shared with Highland at the end of the reqular season.

Freshmen Therese Cerajewski and Suzy Shaw advanced to regionals at the beginning level; while juniors Sue Echterling and Jane Fissinger, first and second place all-around winners, advanced at the inter- mediate level.

For the first time in the school ' s history, the Girls ' Varsity Basketball team had a man for a coach. “He really worked us hard, but it all payed off in the end, " recalled junior Linda Angell. Divided into a Junior-Varsity and Varsity squad, the girls practiced every night after school from 3:30-5:00 in preparation for Sectionals. Coached by Miss Carla Bowers, the Junior-Var- sity team consisted of 12 members. Practice payed off as they ended their season with an 8-6 record.

Early in the season, the team captured the Lake Suburban Conference Tourney. They also took the Conference Crown by placing 6-0. Sophomore Sandy Capps was named All-Con- ference guard and senior Gail Rudakas was awarded All-Conference center. At the Sectional championship, held on home court, the team lost in the finals to top-ranked East Chicago Roosevelt by a margin of two points; thus ending all possibilities of advancing to Regional action. Gail Rudakas also broke the record of career leading scorer held by Kris Rucinski by scoring 405 points in her four years with the team.

Coach Steve Wroblewski sets the ball for the jump. For those students who wanted a break from the boredom of every day and night school work, a special kind of activity was organized. Instead of com ing home from school and watching " The Three Stooges, " or being glued to the boob-tube Tuesday evenings idolizing Fon- zie on " Happy Days, " students could choose an- other route and take an active interest in the in- tramural program. Lasting from November 1 to May 3, approximately 250 students were in- volved in boy ' s and girl ' s volleyball, basketball or ping-pong. " The actual purpose of intramurals is to open up the facilities to students who otherwise couldn ' t use them, " stated intramural director Coach Steve Wroblewski. " Also, the program al- lows students to participate in activities which they couldn ' t make at the varsity level. " For the first time, girls were involved in intra- murals. " There was excellent involvement with the girls in volleyball, but their interest slacked off in the basketball season when it is difficult to run a mixed league, " commented Coach Wrob- lewski. " The participants took the games seri- ously, caring about win-lost records. " Although all of the intramural programs are self-supporting, ribbons or trophies were awarded to each of the winning teams or indi- viduals at the end of the season.

The timer in the fifth lane forgot to start her watch, and the third lane ' s GTOer didn ' t reset her watch after the last race. But these were first year rookies at the beginning of the season, and after a few months they learned their duties. Thank heavens for the second and third year veterans who backed the interns in their first meets. Coaches of the swimming, wrestling, and track teams experienced similiar problems in each of the seasons. Swimming GTO participated in many activities. Decorating houses with multi-colored toilet paper in the wee hours of the morning, writing secret admirer letters, and performing at pep sessions were tasks taken on by the timers. The girls received carnations for their efforts for the swimmers for the last home meet and first choice of state swim meet tickets when an unexpected shortage arose. The track timers adopted a new uniform which was both comfortable and fashionable. The girls worked at the meets in painter pants and new red polo shirts. The Girls ' Varsity Track Team was also included in the timers schedule of events as they also participated in the girls four home meets. The mat maids were responsible for keeping score on a chalk board and throwing in the towel to signal the end of each match. On numerous occasions they were compelled to drag themselves out of bed in order to participate in a TP-ing session or to attend a Saturday morning meet. By the end of the individual season the first year GTO ' ers had gained enough experience to join the veterans in training the new arrivals that the following season would bring.

More outstanding efforts were shown, as the team placed sixth in conference and eighth in sectionals.

Junior Annette Masolak and sophomores Lydia Megremis and Toni Gray helped to make the season successful, ending with a 5-2 record. Annette and Lydia competed in the 100, 440, and 880 relays with Toni in the softball throw. Crown Point and Highland proved to be the teams ' toughest opponents as they could not beat them. The girls also failed to beat them in the Lake Suburban Conference where they placed 3rd. The girls then took 3rd in sectionals. Regionals were a disappointment, where they only had one eligible for the state meet. Toni placed 3rd in the softball throw. Annette placed 6th in the 100 yard dash and the relay team of Annette and sophomores Debbie Kucer, Kim Duhon and Lydia placed 4th. Coach Spangler summed up the year by saying “all the girls gave 150%, which makes them all champs.

The Boy ' s Varsity Golf team proved they had the skill and ability as they ended their regular season with an undefeated 22-0 record. With regular season play over in May, the golfers entered sectional and regional play with hopes of earning titles in the competition. Despite early season cold, windy days and some of the rain delays and muddy courses, the boys pulled through with a 12-0 winning streak to sweep the Lake Suburban Conference crown. Returning lettermen seniors, Andy Fox, John Dal Santo and Kris Ford were all-conference winners with an average score of 37.8.

Of course, school had begun, but more signifi- cantly neighborhood football games began to appear and throughout the evenings the streets were jammed with Schwinn 10-speed bikes. Although not everyone was involved in school athletics, almost everyone found time to do their " own thing, " whether it was tennis, football, or jogging. Elliott School was busy every Sunday because of the rivalries between neighboring football teams. With the 14 available tennis courts open all spring, summer, and fall, there was always a chance to practice on the latest backhand and net shots. But even when the mercury started to drop, students did not stop participating in their sport activities. At Omni 41, with its eight indoor tennis courts, ice rinks, swimming pool, gymnastics equipment, and health club, almost anyone could find his sporting pleasure. On Monday and Wednesday nights, the fieldhouse was crowded with exercise-conscience teens. For those who wanted to participate in gymnastics, the local YMCA provided a program for those interested in both competition and intramurals. When the winter snow arrived, baseball bats were hidden away in closets, and snow skis were once again waxed and polished. The Pines in Valporaiso, being the closest ski area, was busy throughout the week and especially on the weekends. For those with more experience and or gasoline, resorts like Alpine Vally and Wilmot Mountain provided the needed challenge and opportunities. For students with a not-so-good sense of balance, there was always tobaggoning at the Dunes or at one of the many state parks. Ice skating at Wicker Park, Community Park of Omni attracted many weekend athletes. As the warmer weather returned, outdoor sports began to appear once again. The greatest stand-by of summer was, of course, swimming, at either a pool or in Lake Michigan. The beaches became packed as with people skiing, sunbath- ing, sailing, or just floating on waves or rafts. On hot days you could find more frisbees sailing through the air than on toy store shelves. With June ' s arrival, school was through for an- other three months. Students turned in their uni- forms and picked up their own sporting equip- ment. Gone were the matches and meets between schools, but the competition and en- joyment of individual sports continued. BELOW LEFT: Gutter, spare STRIKE!

Not to mention the smelly sweats, uniforms, and equipment shoved into my lockers. What do they think I am! I ' m a locker room, not a garbage dump! I wish these players would use better manners and etiquette. The way they treat one another, one would think they are arch-enemies, not teammates and friends.

If I EVER hear another thing about " gambling " , " glory boy 1 and 2 " , " Ragman " , " Monk " , " Jeeagg " , or " Ironman " , I ' ll just totally collapse! I serve various purposes. A coach may find me the perfect place to take out his " first half " aggressions. During halftime, if we ' re losing, my sides hurt from being kicked, and my ears are just ringing from all the yelling and screaming. Other times, when we ' re ahead, there is a different kind of locker room atmosphere. The players are content, and the coach points out mistakes, yet encourages them to keep up the good work. And when we win, the whole place goes crazy. The celebration lasts longer than the game itself. This is the one time I really enjoy myself. Sometimes I can ' t even breathe. On some days, there is athletic tape covering every inch of my locker door, sealing me shut. If this is their idea of a fun time, I ' m not laughing. Other times, I get slightly water- logged. Wet towels and suits, and runny shampoo bottles are often thrown in my lockers or on my floor. I might catch a cold or even worse, a case of pneumonia. I also have a good friend on the other side of the fieldhouse, the girl ' s locker room. Now, she is treated really well! Never does she hear dirty words, screaming or shouting. And the girls that go in there are respectable and have some manners. After home games, meets, or matches, the girl ' s serve refreshments to the opposing team. How nice! Cookie crumbs are about the extent of her " poor housekeeping " . It ' s just not fair; while I ' m getting kicked or getting rotten oranges thrown on my walls, the worse that may happen to her is baby powder sprinkled all about after a " perfume and powder fight " ! The player ' s in the girl ' s locker ; room at least use their garbage cans. Well, all and all, it ' s not too bad. Although I complain, I guess boys will be boys, and girls will be girls. What can I say?! I kinda like the attention! If the boy ' s and girl ' s locker rooms weren ' t around, what would the players and coaches do? What fun would they have?! ABUVfc: Halftime pointers.

A closer look provides stu- dents with a different insight of teachers ' characters. Part of teachers ' spare time was con- centrated on researching information to prepare for the next day ' s lecture. In ad- dition, their jobs included sponsoring clubs, coaching sports, and directing plays. Their outside activities extended past the textbooks to other areas such as scuba diving and jogging or traveling abroad. Teachers are real people, they eat hamburgers, wear Levis, go to parties and football games just like students. They experience similar situations and problems, and suffer from injured feel- ings, the same as students. Mrs. Thelma Griffin: Office and Attendance Secretary. Mrs. Ann Guiden: Guidance Secretary.

" While students attend high school, they rate their teachers from boring to stimulating or from helpful to indifferent. However, if a teacher leaves a lasting im- pression on a student, he will often be remembered for his pleasant manner or captivating stories rather than his proof of the Pythagorean theorem. The major- ity of teachers have chosen their career because they “enjoy working with young people.

" said Mrs. Jill Koelling, art teacher, Pep Club and Drill Team sponsor. Among the 75 faculty members, 37 helped students as coaches or sponsors. Ten of these 37 staff members were in charge of more than one group. Senior Class sponsor, Mr. Jerry Schroeder laughed as he talked about his reasons for sponsoring the class, “It certainly wasn ' t the money that made me want to be a sponsor. When I was in high school, I appreciated the teachers who helped out and I really like kids, that ' s why I ' m a teacher. " Head Football Coach John Friend stated that the biggest problem of coaching is the final results of the sport- ing event. The game either builds up the team morale or a negative attitude. Coach Friend feels coaching is like an- other full time job. “It takes as much time outside of football practice to plan the practice a s it does to hold the practice. " Mr. Schroeder summed the feelings of most sponsors and coaches when he said " As in every activity you have about 10% to 15% of all the students who carry the rest of the class. Sometimes students are very trying, but overall it ' s been most enjoyable working with them. " Mrs. Anne Whiteley: Spanish II and III, Foreign Language Club Sponsor. Mr. Tom Whiteley: U.S. History.

You wouldn ' t believe how big this school is. There ' s more kids in my graduating class than there was in our entire school. I ' ve never seen so many people crowd into the halls be- tween classes, you feel like a sardine. The really big difference is that all the kids don ' t mix together, they stick to their own group. It ' s like there was a barrier or something. Heck if I know which group I fit into, so I ' m kinda lost. Last Friday I thought I was going crazy! Every class I went to has a dif- Brain: Overloaded by books and en- joying it! Who else would love this but the brain? ferent cheerleader. You might not be- lieve this, but I really thought there were at least 40 cheerleaders! Three- fourths of my lunch table was made up of those cheerleaders who all sat together and talked about the rou- tines and their weekend plans. So I began talking to one of them and she told me that this was just the Drill Team that performed during half- times and boy did I feel stupid! She asked me if I had any plans for after the game and, like always, I didn ' t. Since there wasn ' t a party or a dance, she asked me to come to her house Freak: Most commonly seen in his grubby attire and often caught catching a quick smoke, the freaks stay together. with a few of her other friends. I have never felt so out of place! For one thing I wasn ' t wearing red and white, let alone a uniform, and I wasn ' t ter- ribly interested in hearing about rou- tines. By this time I made the con- clusion that I didn ' t fit in with the Drill Team crowd. Oh yes, we have your basic rahs and they ' re the same as they were at home. They go out with the football, basketball, and or baseball players. They usually have somebody different each and every week. Then we have our jocks, the big let- termen, and believe me, they pack to- gether. You can spot them easily with their letter sweaters and painter ' s pants or their overalls and jerseys. Some of them, commonly known as the rednecks, get their kicks out of ei- ther causing trouble or getting some- one else in a lot of trouble. Some people are strange! Oh, let me tell you about this one kid; the biggest brownie you ever saw! He ' s in my German class and he constantly has his hand up and con- stantly brown noses the teacher. To him (at least), everyone else is wrong but the teacher, who ' s always perfect. He even stays after school to help her grade papers and do bulletin boards. I met the nicest guy yesterday, but he ' s not the type you bring home to mother. He ' s one of those hood types. You know, the ones who might come to class about once a week, wear dirty, grubby jeans that look as if they haven ' t been washed in a year, and the old army or jean jackets. They ' re always getting suspended for catching a smoke between classes or ditching now and then. I ' ve looked for him at games and dances, but you know this type, they would rather die than be seen at a school sponsored activity. I would love to go out with him, but you know how I break out in red spots since I am allergic to smoke. It seems like I ' ll never fit into these cliques, so I ' ll just stick to this little group I started hanging around with. I really feel privileged to be part of them, they make me feel wanted. They ' re just your average bunch of kids who didn ' t make it in any other groups. The only thing I can ' t under- stand is why our little group doesn ' t hang around with others. Another bad thing is that I feel like I ' m letting them down if I make plans with somebody else. Just the other day, one of my friends started going out with this really cute guy, but the others got so upset. It ' s like she broke up our little group or something. I ' m afraid to make plans on my own because I think they will get mad and won ' t bother counting me in on their activi- ties or secrets. It seems like they al- ways know who they will be with and what they will be doing every weekend. I can ' t believe the big difference such a short distance makes. Why can ' t everybody just hang around to- gether and do just about the same thing and share common interests? Oh well, study hall is almost over so take care and write back soon. Tell EVERYONE I said hi. Miss ya.

(Not Pictured: Diane Mjskus secr®ary.) Freshman plan No longer considered to be in the transition phase between grade school and high school, the class of 77 moved up another rung on the ladder facing the problems freshmen in high school must confront. Freshmen Class Officers got a late start since they were elected only two weeks be- fore Homecoming, and their sponsor wasn ' t named until four days after that. Because of these two factors, freshmen money making projects got off to a late start. Plans for bake sales, a dance, and a walk-a-thon were dis- cussed by their class sponsor and officers. Mr. Stone explained that though raising money for next year ' s Homecoming float comes first, any extra money they earned would go toward a field trip to Chicago for the class. According to Mr. Stone, the freshmen worked very well together. He felt proof of this was how they were able to complete the Homeccming Dance plans and decorations in the short two weeks they had to prepare for it.

Information regarding schedules, functions, and purpose of the Guidance Department were fully explained to the audience as the program got under way. It was the job of Student Senate president senior Gail Rovai, to explain the objectives of various clubs and the athletic program. Near the pro- gram ' s end, information concerning the distri- bution of report cards, registration for student insurance, proper school attire, and the build- ing hours were presented.

It may seem impossible, but this scene came to life as the Freshman Class created a “Circus World " for the Homecoming dance. Decorating for the dance was the fresh- men ' s major responsibility, but their duties also included providing refreshments, ap- pointing 12 girls to serve, checking coats, and asking teachers to act as chaperones. With the $125 given to them by the Student Senate, they had to purchase all food and decorating supplies. In addition, class members obtained food donations from local businesses. Although the dance was switched to the cafeteria after complete arrangements were made for it to be held in the commons, all planned decorations were eventually finished. Afterward, math teacher and class sponsor, Mr. Scott Stone, commented, he was " as- tounded by the amount of work done.

The 463 soph- omores worked to get a good head start on making money for the upcoming Prom. By holding a car wash and several bake sales dur- ing the summer the sophomores increased their funds. A dance in )anuary helped to sup- plement the needed cost for the decorations, band, and favors. Problems arose in trying to raise enough money for Prom. According to Mr. David Rus- sell, class sqonsor, " We can ' t seem to find enough good ways to make money. We need more ways to make a large sum of money all at one time.

In order to continue making flowers for lhe float, sophomore Julie Repjka, attempts to untangle the vvure needed to complete. r ' W ' V ' X Sophomores experienced the challenges of constructing their first Homecoming float as they learn the responsibilities of working to- gether on a major class project. " Eat ' Em Up Lion Down " was the theme chosen by the Class of 78. Their float de- picted a lion, down on all fours, with a Red Devil under its front paw. Both lumber and chicken wire were do- nated to the class, but according to Mr. David Russell, Sophomore Class sponsor, they spent close to $300 on paper, nails, and caution lights for the eyes. He also stated that they had no problems with the paper shortage. " We only ran out of paper once, our supply of brown diminshed the night before the parade. We needed brown for the mane, but we de- cided to fill it in with white instead. " Getting a flatbed with the right dimensions created the greatest problem. The class wanted a 20 foot bed, but instead they ac- quired a 32 foot semi flatbed. According to Mr. Russell, 75 to 80 people were at the float each night. " We had great class participation. There just wasn ' t enough to do each night that would make it possible for everyone to work at once, so we did have some of the students standing around talking, but they weren ' t interfering with the work.

Eighty sophomores went door-to-door to promote the unique stationery that could also hang as a poster. A total of 765 units were sold raising approximately $750 in profit. One of the major reasons for the project ' s success dealt with the bonuses students earned for their work. Those who sold over 35 units received a watch with the Bicentennial symbol Johnny Horizon on the face, whose eyes move with each second. The fact that the stationery was 100% recycled paper also served as a strong selling point. Although their initial goal of $1000 was not achieved, the Sophom ore Class did increase their treasury for future Prom expenses and helped to act as a link between the school and the community with neighborhood sales. ' Presentation, lime and effort mean rewards for those who participate in the Super Frog stationery sale, as sophomores Ruth Morrison, Dalia Sidabras, Yvonne Klootwyk, and Lisa Hieber test out their new watches awarded to them by •• class sponsor, Mr. David Russell. f i Cesar Labitan Robert Laczi Lynn Ladd Carol Landay Dan Landers (ill Langendorff Marianne Lanman Mark Lapa Cindie LaRoche Paul Larson Mark Lazerwitz Jerry Leahy )im Learn Chuck Lee Edward Leeney Mike Lentz Carol Lichtsinn Janice Lisle Robert Longhauser Wendy Lorentzen Dave Luera Francis Luo Pam Maas Terry Mack Sue Maginot Mark Mamich Dale Manasar Tim Mannion Jim Margraff Phil Marks Bob Mason Christi Mazanek Dave McClaughry Dave McKenna Doria McNeill Julie McNurlan Lori Mears Lydia Megremis Jim Mehalso Ellen Melby 220 Sophomores Mary Melby Carrie Melind Diane Mellady Norma Merchant Lori Merkel Denise Metze Sylvia Mihalareas Cathy Miller Elaine Miller Kim Miller Michelle Miller Virginia Miller Mike Mintz Rob Mintz |ohn Moehl Nancy Monak Cathy Moore Sue Morario Donna Morris Ruth Morrison Ruth Moswin Terry Mott Steve Mulholland Tom Mulligan Sara Muntiu Mike Murphy Maggie Nawojski Doug Ness lohn Niegos Bill Norris Susan Norton Ju dy Nottoli Judy O ' Barske Mary O ' Bryan Marilyn Odell Pam Opatera Jim Orlich Greg Oslan David Otte Tina Pappas Mike Parker Connie Patterson Pam Pavel Barb Pavlovic Dave Peterson David Peterson Karen Peterson Kathy Peterson Mike Petrahevich Sandy Petrie Cindy Pet ruch Andree Peyrot Matt Pfister Kathie Phillips Connie Pieters Carol Pietrzak Tom Pink Sandy Pintzow Chris Pokrifcak Karen Popielo Bill Potasnik Susan Powers Sue Pruzin Dawn Przybyl Brenda Puls Peggie Quint Jim Racich Ryan Rakos Jane Rankin Clarissa Raymundo Pat Reck Chipper Rednour Sophomores 221 Tom Reese Charles Remmers Julie Reppa Luann Revenew Tom Rhind Debbie Rice Nancy Richter Mike Ricks Mike Robbins Anna Rosales Bill Ruble Beth Ruman lames Saska lohn Sartain Melinda Scheffel Rose Scherer Rose Schreier loanne Schmueser David Scholl Tommy Scholte Suzanne Scott Kevin Seliger Kevin Shaw Pam Shegich Chris Shmagramoff Dalia Sidabras Dave Siegel Maria Siegler Steve Silver Mary Simpson Therese Sipes Robert Skurka Ellis Slone Alan Smick Theresa Smiley Bonnie Smith Denise Smith Paul Smith Bob Snow Susan Snyder Susan Speroff Ron Stanko Mark Sterk Ion Stevenson iudson Strain Michelle Strater Alice Strayer Dave Such Kim Tangerman Penny Taylor Debbie Terranova Steve Thornton )im Thrall lanet Tobin Steven Tomczak )oel Truver Damon Tsouklis Elaine Ulber Steve Urbanski Lisa Valias Dave Vance lohn Vitkus Wendy Wagner Ed Walczak lanice Walczak Mary Wall Ken Walsh Debbie Warneke lanet Warziniak Brian Watson Chris Watson David Watt 222 Sophomores Decisions, decisions.

V DfdSions, ! final choice ‘ 1 want a ruby When springtime rolled around, it was easy to tell who was the most sought after man of the Sophomore Class— the Balfour man. Pink and blue plastic size rings began to ap- pear on the fingers of sophomores, w ' ho tried to decide the proper size for class rings. The constant humming of “carat gold or sterling silver? " , “star flame or star burst? " , could be heard in the halls. Before, during, and after school, the halls were filled with lines of anxious sophomores, gripping an order blank in one hand and a check in the other. Sophomores had to make important deci- sions on color, size, cut, and inscription.

" The Class of 77 ' s main objective was to raise money for prom and the home- coming float. During March, a Charm su- cker sale was held and $70 raised, while in January, a dance featuring " Stonewood Fox " helped to build up the treasury. Mr. Pollingue also sponsored the Powder Puff football game. Although the juniors re- ceived most of the proceeds, the senior girls got most of the glory when they beat the juniors 20-7. First place went to the Class of 77 for their clown float which stated " Those Clowns are in for a Bang! " " We were ahead of the other classes in getting supplies for the float, " said Mr. Pollingue. Prom ' s theme of " Precious and Few " was created through favors and music.

Everyone listens in hushed silence to the results of the float competition and wonders how the long evenings of folding flowers, hammering nails, and cutting wire will turn out in rela- tion to their efforts in construction. As halftime drew near, students began to leave their seats in order to ride on their float out onto the field. Over the crackle of the microphone, first place was awarded to the junior Class. Joyful cries and sighs of re- lief went up form the junior section of the pep block. In their second year of float competition, the juniors came out on top. An early start proved beneficial for the junior Class. With the theme of " Circus World, " juniors voted on and selected " Those Clowns Are In For A Bang " for their float theme. Overall participation proved satisfactory as the guys and girls banned to- gether to build and complete their float with time to spare. With the aid of sponsor, Mr. George Pollingue, last minute details were straightened out before the parade. Their main difficulty was in making the fire cracker the right size. After spending $240. on the float, they were left with $100 in the treasury and a first place plaque to their name.

Juniors lose As a large fund raising event for prom and a new homecoming tradition, the second an- nual Powder Puff football game was held be- tween the junior and senior girls. Junior Class sponsor, Mr. George Pollingue, coached the junior ' s offense, while Mr. Bob Maicher instructed the girls ' defense. How- ever, the originators of the Powder Puff game, the Class of ' 76, kept their record clean as they defeated the Class of ' 77, 20-7. The Junior Class received 60 percent of the profits, which totaled approximately $350. Tickets were sold by each girl for one dollar.

" Prom was the major responsibility for the Junior Class, and preparations for the festivi- ties began months beforehand. Committees were formed to select and print invitations, choose bands and favors, and create and ar- range decorations. Bake sales and car washes helped to provide funds, since only $1000 existed in the class treasury as the dance drew near. Couples were charged $25 for tickets, and this relieved some of the burden on the class. When Prom night arrived, all the planning became a reality. A decorated fieldhouse was the scene of Prom where " Stonewood Fox " provided the music, and brandy snifters were distributed as favors. After much investigation about its size and location, Wellman ' s Bridge- Vu Theater in Valporaiso was once again cho- sen to be the site of Post-Prom. Reserving bands and coping with rising costs presented minor obstacles in Prom preparations, but the dance went on as sched- uled, and Prom couples shared those mo- ments considered " Precious and Few.

Ron Brian Bruce Brink Seniors 233 attain merit To spend three hours reading paragraphs and solv- ing problems, then to fill out long and involved forms, and finally to endure another testing session may seem like cruel and unusual punishment. However, for six seniors, these efforts were rewarded as they were chosen as National Merit Scholarship Finalists. Students became eligible for the National Merit Scholarship competition by taking the PSAT NMSQT in the fall of their junior year. Greg Elkman, Pete Haines, Bill Reister, Dave Snyder, John Watson, and Sue Weinberg were among those who placed highest on the test in the state and gained the honor as Na- tional Merit Scholarship Semifinalists. However, to ad- vance to finalist, these students had many require- ments to meet, which included getting recommendations from the high school, achieving equivalently high scores on the SAT, and filling out ap- plications. These questions covered the students ' ac- tivity in such areas as publications, athletics, and per- formance and an essay in which they were to describe themselves. In February, the finalists were notified, thus quali- fying them for scholarships sponsored by the Merit Program, colleges, and corporations. By the end of the year, scholarship winners were announced, and the process of working, writing, and waiting came to an end. Lori Brooks Ted Brown James F. Brumm: Swlfciming 1-4; Lettermen 2-4.

Ron Dayney Seniors 235 their lesson Everyone knew something was up. Six girls walking around the school, clad in Letterman sweaters and long pleated skirts strongly resembled cheerleaders of the 50 ' s. As the day wore on, the teachers started to make nervous mistakes and many cases of jitters set in. Soon students began to realize and remember the occasion. It was the night of rivalry, the basketball game between the seniors and the faculty, the decid- ing factor determining who was the strongest in school. As 7:30 rolled around, the fieldhouse began to fill up. While the players assembled on the court, an- nouncer senior John McCormick, introduced players by their various nicknames, Black jack, Mr. Meno, Sweet William, just to mention a few and many others. Beginning with the jump, the faculty took the lead and despite the clowing around, the seniors were un- able to maintain a lead. To entertain the spectators, cheerleaders did cheers which originated out of “Happy Days " . Pyramids built by seniors Cheri Parker, Michelle Mezey, Shari Smith, Becky Breaz, Stacy Winterfeldt, and Karen Backe helped to promote halftime spirit. The game ended with a final score of 55-49 in favor of the faculty. With an admission price of $1, all profits from the game went to commencement.

Tension mounted as the " big " awards for the biggest gossip, most gullible, and the shyest seniors were presented. The Class of 76 chose the House of Lynwood to host the non-school sponsored senior banquet. A buf- fet style dinner, followed by the awards presentation highlighted the evening ' s act. Entertainment was pro- vided by M R Rush. The Music continued from 8 to 11 where students had the opportunity to dance with some of their senior teachers who were chaperones at the banquet. The price of the tickets was set at $8. Daniel Michael Harvey: Orchestra 1,2; Cadet Teach 4; Lab Asst 4; Student Senate 4. Jennifer J.

" Sugar and spice and all that ' s nice, that ' s what little girls are made of. " This quote easily sums up the quali- ties of small children, but it is not so simple to explain the characteristics of the Senior Class. Seniors have established themselves as the leaders of most school functions. Although extra-curricular activities offer enjoyment for all students, seniors con- trol the major offices in many organizations, including clubs, sports, and student government. Along with the senior status, comes the fulfillment of graduation requirements. While composition and government classes provide challenge and pleasure for some, others find them grueling experiences. How- ever, as a reward for these efforts, seni ors may receive the privilege of early release, when they may leave one to three hours early to get a part-time job, spend addi- tional hours studying, or just have extra free time. Senior year was marked by a number of special ac- tivities. During the summer, boys in coats and ties and girls with curled hair and colorful blouses made their debut for Senior Class pictures. Rulers and scratch marks appeared on the walls in December, as mem- bers of the Class of ' 76 were measured for their caps and gowns. As spring rolled around, they packed their bags for Tampa, Florida, the site of the Senior Class trip. Finally, as the school year drew to a close, the se- nior banquet was held and students prepared for their last school activity, graduation. During their four years of high school, students may build close ties with friends and faculty members or remain basicly isolated. But when that Sunday at the end of May finally arrived, commencement served as the unifying force that bound the Senior Class for the last time. In the next few weeks, the juniors of ' 76 be- came the leaders of ' 77, and the cycle of senior superi- ority began once again. Michelle Isay: CTO 3; Office Asst. 3; DE 3; CAA 1.

When the bell rings at 12:34 to end fourth hour, their school day is over. Because they registered for early release, they are free to choose their afternoon activities. The opportunities are varied, and these three students spend their time in different ways. Jane rushes home in time to prepare a quick lunch before she sits down for an afternoon with The Doc- tors, General Hospital, and One Life to Live. After having a good cry over the traumas of all the charac- ters, she moves on to her studies. She can ' t wait any longer, since that 12 paragraph theme is due for com- position tomorrow. But before she starts, she must call Sally and remind her of her shopping date for the next afternoon. As Jim drives out of the parking lot, he heads for McDonald ' s. After devouring a Big Mac, fries, and a shake, he returns to the fieldhouse, ready for an after- noon workout. First he lifts weights, shoots a few bas- kets, and then jogs around the track before hitting the showers and heading for home. Joan spends her afternoons on the job. Employed as a part-time clerk at one of the nearby clothing stores she works five hours a day after school. It serves as great experience for her, since she hopes to go into merchandising or fashion design after college. In addi- tion, the money she earns will be put toward the Se- nior Class trip and eventually be used for college expenses. Early release is a privilege that seniors have, and most other students wish they shared. Whether it ' s a job or any other activity, early release is a chance for seniors to gain a little more independence before go- ing to college, acquiring a full-time job, or starting a family.

Aurel Metz Jeff Meyer Seniors 243 Efill free afternoons and I’m sick C 5 Sammy ' s mind was occupied with an important matter. Not with the government essay test he had next hour or even that fight he had with his girlfriend. His mind was on a more current and important mat- ter: his ditching excuse for the day. " Let ' s see, I had a doctor ' s appointment last week and I had the flu the week before, so I don ' t suppose I could be sick again. ' ' he thought. Excuses varied from doctor and orthodontist ap- pointments to tire blowouts. Once a mother called the office and asked if her son could leave since the dog was loose and she was sick in bed. So when your teacher says " Don ' t tell me the dog ate your essay, and you took him to the vet, " don ' t laugh. That is just the excuse some students may use. Caught in the Act. An un- known forger is caught as she writes an excuse for grself from the class she d the previous day.

Seniors 245 gin Florida Hawaii, Florida, Colorado, Arizona, California, and Mexico were all suggested as possible locations for the Senior Class trip. Class Officers found themselves busy visiting various travel agencies to gather the necessary information regarding hotels, costs, and transportation. First choice for the trip was a ranch near Tuscon Arizona, but reservations weren ' t made early enough, so the seniors had to find a new site. Instead, seniors decided to visit Tampa, Florida for 7 days, March 19 through 26. Thirty-eight seniors signed up for the trip which credited the Class of 76 with the largest number of people ever to go on a class trip. A $50.00 deposit was required to be made by all that planned to go on the trip. The total cost of the trip was $243.88 and included transportation on a Northwest Airlines 747 jet to and from Florida, hotel accommodations, and transportation to tourist attractions. Among the places visited by the seniors were Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens, Greek Village, Bartke ' s Dinner Theater, and the Columbia Spanish Restaurant. The class officers made arrangements to stay at the Causeway Inn, which, was equipped with not only a sauna, and a steam bath, but a pool, and a beach across the street.

Rune Myhre, as he traveled from his home in Norway to expand his knowledge of United States culture. T AU-OV LITTLE fee Exchange student To be accepted in the AFS foreign exchange pro- gram is a high honor, but to Rune Myhre it also en- tailed a two day notice to pack and leave his home in Fauske, Norway for a year in America, and a new life style experience. To try out for the American Field Service exchange program. Rune and his parents had to write a paper describing himself, in addition to completing the many application forms. Although Rune was a finalist, he was not informed of his destination or any last-minute details of his trip. Rune ' s traveling time consisted of ten hours by plane, ten hours by car, eight hours by train, and 18 hours by bus to reach his new family in Munster, at the home of Bob Young. Although each country has its own special charac- teristics, Rune also noticed some similiarities between the teenagers of Norway and America. A teen in Fauske might spend his Friday night doing the same thing as many MHS students, by attending a dance and heading for a party afterward. The two countries contrast each other most iin the area of food. In Nor- way, most meals are cooked from scratch, not from the convenient boxes and cans that America thrives on. Mastering a new language while taking the required senior courses provided quite a challenge for Rune. Although he received grades for his work, he received no credit since he must repeat his senior year after he returns home to his family in Norway.

Those seniors that graduated first semester often sought a full-time job. Many started college early on campus or at Purdue Calumet, Indiana Northwest, or Calumet College. McDonalds, Sterks, Legs and Ears, and Jewel were among the nearby business that hired high school students for part time work. Those students working full-time either instead of or before attending college, found employment at lumber yards and steel mills while many girls acquired secretarial positions with their typing and shorthand skills.

We wish to express our thanks to some very special people for their assistance during the past year ... Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Powers for housing and helping with our first annual picnic and our first place Homecoming car . . . Mr. George Kingsley, Paragon sales representative, for his time and encouragement throughout deadlines ... Mr. and Mrs. Francis Backe for allowing us the use of their home for the staff Christmas party . . . The Art Department for all its help . . . Brian Rasmus for his cover design ... the office help for handling our finances, phone calls, and mail ... Dr. Karl Hertz, Mr. James Bawden, and Mr. John Ten- nant for their tolerance of late-night deadlines and staff rowdiness ... the Compass and Paul Cress for their Girl ' s State Volleyball pictures . . . Mr. Robert Hastings for putting up with late sup- pers, and staff deadlines . . . And espe- cially to Mrs. Nancy Hastings our ex- treme gratitude for her guidance, time, patience, and most of all humor throughout the year. 1976 Paragon was printed by Paragon Press in Montgomery, Alabama on 80 pound Calias paper. Each section had a distinct and different layout style. Activi- ties had one column of copy on the left side of the spread with the headline rounded around the corner. Academics had an eyeline above the three columns of copy which alternated sides every new division. Athletics overlapped the dominant picture. Organizations had a three stack headline with a rounded sub- head over two columns of copy. Person- alities had copy on the top of either right or left-hand page in the corner with a sharp cornered headline around it. Ad- vertising had dotted tool lines around each ad and its headline to make them resemble coupons. All body copy wa s 10 point Optima Medium with black, as all captions and kickers were 8 point Optima Medium with black. All headlines were set with FORMATT type with the exception of Ads addresses, which were 18 and 14 point Optima Medium. Headline types included in the book are as follows: Ac- tivities 36 and 24 point FORMATT 5614; Athletics 48 point FORMATT 5617; Academic 48 and 24 point FOR- MATT 5650, 5649; Organizations 48 point FORMATT 5571, subhead 24 point FORMATT 5545; Personalities 48 point FORMATT 5475; Advertising 48 point FORMATT 5669 and 36, 24 point FORMATT 5668. Our Specials throughout the book used 48 and 36 point FORMATT 5646; Opening, Divi- sions, and ' Closing headlines were 42 point FORMATT 5368. Throughout somewhat rushed dead- lines staff birthday parties, and picnics, we still couldn ' t have made it without all the parent ' s help, and patience . . .
