No more term papers or finals. I’ve got three months to lie out on the beach, go swimming, or just sit around. Oh, no! I forgot all about summer school. There goes all my free time! As June and July rolled by, 703 students found their time limited as they participated in summer school acitivites. Whether learning the steps of parallel parking or just im- proving other skills, students took part in more lenient classes than those of the regu- lar school year. In addition to such required courses as Driver’s Education and Health and Safety, make- up courses in English and Math were also available. Under the direction of physics teacher, Mr. Steve Landy, a non-credit Greek class was offered for those interested. Seeking skills in individual interests, summer institutors attended many workshops. Cheerleaders learned new rou- tines, while Paragon and Crier staffers spent a week at Ball State. Others even studied in Mexico and Germany. As the seconds ticked off students anxiously awaited the start of summer vacation. Too soon the bells would start to ring, signalling the start of a new school year. Summer 9 Cells signal start ef summer fun V. " Hey, What time did you get home last night? " “Three-thirty?!?” BELOW: EASY DOES IT. Concentrating on keeping a steady hand, junior Greg Os- lan, places another nail into the scarecrow ' s arm “Boy, you must have put in a lot of time on the float.” " You said it, and I’m just not ready for an hour of English. I guess I’d better pre- pare myself for his lecture.’’ " . . . and always use transi- tive verbs when . . . ZZZzzzzz " I don’t believe it! I must be somewhere over the rainbow! Why am I sitting in a field of poppies? I’ve got to hurry back to school! I don’t have time to sit here all day; I have a big Chemistry test next hour!” I wonder what the fastest way out of here is. I guess I’ll try my luck at following that yellow brick road over there. I had been walking down the yellow brick road for five long hours, when all of the sudden I caught a glimpse in the distance of what looked like civilization! I noticed a sign on a big gate which read: “Welcome to the Land of Oz” (better known as the Home of the Mustangs). I couldn’t be- lieve it! Curiously, I opened the gate to let myself into the “Land of Oz”. The high school wasn’t that hard to find, considering it was the only one in the whole town. I made it there just in time to participate in " Spirit Week”. Throughout the week, an extra added spirit was found in the school as students dressed up in jeans and jerseys, nostalgic clothes, farmer outfits, their class colors and red and white. This was the beginning of the many events that were to take place that week. On Thursday, I happened to be out for a walk when I no- ticed a big pile of wood in Community Park. The silence of the night was broken by cries of " Beat the Panthers " . My instincts told me to go and find out what was happening. As I was standing amid the crowd, I (Continued on page 12) RIGHT: RUST IN PEACE.

Homecoming l e-rrute cf parade causes ccnfusicn l 1 was entertained by the screaming cheers of the var- sity cheerleaders, football coaches and players. After the pep session the huge pile of wood was set on fire, and the crowd of people moved back and watched the fire’s orange flames turn the woodpile to ash. I ' m glad I remembered there would be a parade, but too bad I came into the picture too early. I sat on Ridge Road for an hour and waited for the pa- rade, but it never came, so I began to walk back to school. On the way back, I heard mu- sic and I said to myself, " No, it couldn’t be!” But yes it was . . . the Marching Mustangs along with the Drill Team, Majorettes and Flag and Rifle Corps. How could I have forgotten! With the construction on Ridge Road the parade had to be re- routed so it went down Harri- son Avenue and back over to the school. Back at school, the home- coming events were still going on. My nose immediately di- rected me to where the Speech and Debate Team was cooking the annual barbecued chicken dinner. For only a quarter, I was able to go inside the track to watch some high school students re- live their childhood days of trike riding. The Office Educa- tion Association (OEA) was holding their annual trike race. Awards were given to the teams with the best costumes, and the overall race winners. With all the activities of the day behind me, I looked for- ward to the night when the float winner, and QUEENIE would be announced! At half- time, the band marched out on the field and the homecoming court was announced as they walked towards the home side. Frosh princess, Pam Thomae, sophomore princess, Leann Laskey, junior princess, Sue Emhuff and senior princesses Cheryl Kish, Jill Kovack and TOP: ALL OUT EFFORT.

Second place went to the junior float with the theme, “Either Way It ' s a Mus- tang Victory”, and the winner was the seniors’ with “Rust in Peace” as their theme. On Saturday morning, I re- membered that Harry Engle- bomb had asked me to the dance. How could I have said yes! The dance was held in the cafeteria which was cleverly transformed into the “Land of Oz”. Freshmen servers, dressed in munchkin outfits, greeted couples at the door and served the refreshments. The band “Axe’’ provided the music for the evening. I could not believe it! Not only did Harry look half way decent in a suit, but he could dance too! After the dance, we went to eat. I was having such a good time that I didn’t get home until three in the morning! When I arrived on my front porch, I was greeted by a familiar face. It looked as though beneath the cold cream and curlers, it could have been my mother. Her disguise made her look more as if she were the wicked witch of the west! As I walked past her, she yelled! “Do you realize what time it is? Just wait until your father hears about what time you got in.” I can’t believe how an other- wise perfect dream could turn out to be such a nightmare. As I walked into my bedroom, I thought to myself, " THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME, THERE ' S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.” BELOW: TURN ' EM AGAIN!

We ' ll show them how to play foot- ball! Seniors will win again!” Such conversation and last minute pep talks could be heard coming from the senior sideline. Across the field the juniors were screaming “Let’s kill the senior girls!” We ' ll pay them back for taking first place on their Homecoming float!” Junior girls, coached by Mr. David Russell, English teacher, and Mr. Robert Shinkan, math teacher, began practicing three weeks prior to the annual Powder Puff game. Senior girls, with experience from last year ' s game, were coached by math teachers Mr. George Pol- lingue and Mr. Robert Maicher. Their practices started one week before the game in the horseshoe. Keeping with tradition, a Cross Country team member was once again elected Pow- der Puff King. Junior Ceasar Labitan was honored with a cardboard crown during half- time. Junior and Senior boys supplied their own half-time show as they did acrobats and cheers for their respective teams. Annette Masolak scored all three of the seniors ' touch- downs while juniors Christi Mazanek and Lydia Megremis each scored one for their team. The final score was 20-16 in favor of the seniors who won for the third consecutive year. At the end of the fourth and final quarter, screams and ex- cited cheers of joy burst forth from the seniors ' sideline, which could be heard all over the football field. A disap- pointed junior team, tired and out of breath, left the field in hopes of a victory next year. Powder Puff 1 7 We’re net lust ribbcns and curls 18 Fall Drama Eeek . . . Listen to all that commotion! Sounds as if the ceiling is gonna cave in. Omi- gosh! My teeth won ' t stop ch . . ch . . chattering! What am I gonna do? I can ' t get up on that stage now. Not in front of a million glaring eyes. Knowing me, I ' ll mess up everything. I can just see myself coming in through the wrong entrance and tripping over someone. Maybe if I’m lucky I can make a fast exit out the backdoor. Oh no! There is my cue. Heavens to Betsy, what’ll I do? As the curtains parted re- vealing the elaborate decor of an English vicar’s residence, the beginnings of a heated ar- gument began to erupt. Outra- geously mad that the vicar ' s wife, junior Blair Barkal, had taken it upon herself to deco- rate the church ' s pulpit; the old maid, junior Marianne Lan- man, has it out with Reverend Toop, sophomore Jim Sczepa- niak, in Drama Club ' s fall pro- duction " See How They Run.” The hilarious comedy which centers around the mys- tery of who is who, exagger- ates the confusion caused by the presence of four men dressed as clergymen when only two are the real ones. After endless hours of mo- notonous practice, the play was presented November 12 and 13 to an overwhelmingly large crowd. Both perfor- mances had an unexpected large crowd. According to di- rector Mrs. Renee Kouris, ju- nior English teacher, the play went rather well, the cast was at ease, and the audience really seemed to be enjoying themselves. As the final curtain started to close, weeks of rehearsals and last minute jitters came to an end. Pheew! I guess it wasn’t that bad after all. And just think, I was gonna sneak out the back exit!

I really didn ' t want to leave my warm bed, but with my mother screaming at me and my little brother tossing pillows at my head, I had no choice. As I crawled out of bed, I quickly noticed that snow was piled high against my windows, making it almost impossible to see outside. I quickly dashed toward my radio to listen to WJOB, won- dering if I still had school. Boy, was I lucky! As I lis- tened to the Hammond station, I heard the announcer say, “No classes for all Munster Public Schools today.’’ For the first time since 1973, Munster High was closed for a snow day. As I listened on, I heard that all the Lake County schools were closed. I decided to slip back into bed to catch a few more hours of sleep. What a perfect oppor- tunity to rest up and watch all my soap operas. Before I had the chance to fulfill " my big plans,” my mom informed me that I was on snow duty. I had to go out and shovel the whole driveway in the sub-zero tem- perature. It took me almost fifteen minutes to get dressed. I really had no energy to trudge out into the snow, but since my dad got stuck earlier that day, I decided to go. As I opened the front door, an icy gust whisked through the crack. I walked out into the drifts, not knowing where to begin. Snow was piled every- where. There weren’t even any car tracks on the street. The whole town seemed to be dead. Where were the snow plows? The only noise to be heard was the sound of the wind whirling through the snow covered trees. Although I shoveled at a steady pace, I wasn’t making much progress since the wind blew the snow right back onto the driveway. I finally finished the job. Snow-covered and practically frozen, I made my way back into the house to thaw out. I wish my dad would have bought a snow blower be- cause it would have made the whole job a lot easier. Five hours later, back ach- ing, sore throat coming on, and completely exhausted, I collapsed in the couch. To my disappointment, all of my soap operas were over. My only snow day off was completely wasted. Two weeks later the semes- ter ended and the schools in the town of Munster were once again given the day off. I re- member waking up the Friday morning that we got off for se- mester break. It was an exact replica of the previous snow storm. My day began with my mother urging me to get dressed and rushing me out into the snowstorm to go to Burgers, the local super- market, to stock up on grocer- ies before we were snowed in. When I arrived in the store, it seemed that the whole town of Munster had the same idea as my mom. You’d think that this was the only food left in the whole world, the way the people were stuffing their shopping carts full to capacity. I finished the shopping and tried to make my way up to the register. Thirty minutes had gone by, when I noticed that my ice cream had started to melt in my shopping cart, and onto the floor. On the way home, I heard the radio announcer proclaim that Indiana was a national dis- aster area. All of the major in- terstates were shut down be- cause of the snow. NIPSCO (Northern Indiana Public Ser- vice Company) urged all of the schools to shut down for three days. They also asked all busi- nesses to shut down because there was not enough natural energy. All the local steel industries closed, along with the local businesses. Many stores con- tinued to conserve energy throughout the winter by cut- ting down their hours. Throughout the winter, fuel shortages continued to threaten the nation. President Carter ordered all thermostats to be turned down to 65 degr- ess during the day and 55 de- grees at night. Well, three days off school was not all that bad. With many of the nearby shopping cen- ters being shut down and the freezing cold sub-zero weather, it looks like I’ll be hi- bernating next to the fireplace and catching up on a few nov- els I never had time to read.

This is strange! It i really feels like I’m floating in space. I think I ' ll go buy some more tickets so I can go on the Moon Walk again!” The Moon Walk, sponsored by the juniors, was a favorite which returned again this year at the annual Carnival held in the fieldhouse. Besides the Moon Walk, other games from the past :■ years were enjoyed by people of all ages. These booths in- cluded Project Biology’s Gold Fish Toss, the Freshmen Class’ Pie-Throwing Booth, Marching Band’s Basketball Throw, and Paragon ' s Pick-A-Pop. I Some new attractions that were added were Rifle Corps ' Feed the Shark, and the Kiss- ing Booth. The shark game was played by throwing bean bags into the jaws of a shark and it mainly appealed to the 1 children. The Kissing Booth at- ; traded all the eager kissers. For two tickets anyone could kiss whoever was in the booth. All together 1 8 booths were set up inside the fieldhouse. To promote the Carnival to the younger children, senior girls, dressed as clowns, invited all elementary students to attend by visiting their schools. Admission was 25 cents at the door. Carnival goers could then purchase tickets for 15 cents each or two for a quarter. Most games could be played for one or two tickets, but some clubs charged more, hoping to make a bigger profit. The Carnival, co-sponsored by the Junior and Senior Classes grossed approximately i $1,000, which was divided among the groups according to how much their individual booths made. The Junior Class showed the greatest profit booth-wise, while the seniors accumulated the most money by charging admission and sponsoring two concession stands. Carnival BELOW: POOL SHARK.

Add a touch of light- hearted humor and sarcasm and you have a show that both old and young will enjoy. Suspense and intrigue set the scene as the curtains parted on Feb. 23 and 24, re- vealing Drama Club ' s spring production, “Exit the Body.” Because the revived musi- cal was scheduled for June, the play was presented earlier than in previous years. To pro- vide for the time change, prac- tices began right after Christ- mas and continued each day after school until performance nights. Two dress rehearsals took place on Monday and Tuesday; however, complete make-up was only used on Monday, since the actors were experiencing skin irritations from the grease paint. A cast of ten members, along with the help of stage crews and director Mrs. Renee Kouris, presented the mystery. The plot revolved around the mysterious whereabouts of stolen diamonds. Each of the various characters searched all over the mystery writer’s (ju- nior Marianne Lanman’s) vaca- tion home to find the jewels and claim them as his own. Much to their surprise, the searchers found that all along, the real estate agent, junior Dalia Sidabras, had the jewels stashed in the ice cube tray. According to instructor Mrs. Renee Kouris, the play went well. The audience re- sponse was great; the specta- tors appeared to be enjoying themselves. Mrs. Kouris felt that there was a great turnout and she hopes it will go as well next year. RIGHT: FIRED UP.

But I haven ' t even asked you yet. " “This is perfect— I have a dress and everything! It’s hot pink! " “Does that mean I have to get a hot pink tux?” Waiting and asking was just the beginning for the 216 couples who attended Prom on May 14. During lunch hours, stu- dents were able to purchase Prom tickets in a new way from previous years. Tickets to Prom alone sold for $8, and tickets to both Prom and Post Prom sold for $25. Tickets were sold separately because Prom was not considered, for the first time, to be a school sponsored function. Early plans helped to orga- nize Prom, which was spon- sored by the Junior Class un- der the direction of Mr. David Russell, English teacher. Sev- eral committees were formed to help with Prom prepara- tions. These included the band, decorations, tuxes, fa- vors, program, tickets and lo- cation committees. After the committees had completed their work, the theme “Could It Be Magic " was chosen, the decorations were up, and the magical mood of Prom was set. Even though not consid- ered an “official " part of Prom, Pre-Prom parties were actually considered to be a must. Some parties were by invitation only and some were open houses. Usually starting at seven p.m., couples had a chance to get together before the big eve- ning to compare flowers, ad- mire each other in formal at- tire, take a few remembrance pictures, and catch a quick snack before Prom.

Couples were posi- tioned in front of a flowered archway for their pictures. Freshmen servers were chosen to help serve refresh- ments, pass out favors and welcome couples as they en- tered Prom. A variety of hors d ' oeuvres were available along with punch for those hungry Prom attenders. Music at Prom was pro- vided by Monterey and was highlighted when the group asked senior John Lyle to play a drum solo along with the band. For those couples attend- ing Post-Prom, as 12 o’clock rolled around, they picked up their beer mug and cham- pagne glass favors and left to the Holiday Inn in Harvey, III. for the rest of the night. A sit down dinner was pro- vided for the couples to make the dinner seem more enjoy- able and less hectic than in previous years when a buffet style dinner was served. Music at Post-Prom was provided by Mariner. As a grand finale the group played the theme song, ‘‘Could It Be Magic”. After the dance ended at four o’clock a.m., weary couples with sore feet and loud music still pounding in their heads, trudged home to get a few hours of sleep before packing up for the beach. While many couples went to Warren Dunes, others went to their friend’s cottage. The whole weekend of Prom was highlighted by the sunny 90 degree weather that didn’t dis- appear until later Sunday evening. “What about next year, think you might want to go again?

For 421 seniors, anticipa- tion of the forthcoming event brought on flickering flash- backs and butterflies as gradu- ation ceremonies got under- way on June 5 with baccalaureate services at 2 p.m. in the auditorium. Class president Tom Krajewski gave the invocation while Reverend Gary Jones of the Munster Church of Nazarene ad- dressed the class. To break the monotony of the solemn occasion, co-salutatorians Beverly Schwarz and Nan Sut- ter, along with class officers Carol Bartok, Drew Kanyer and David Ladd added light- hearted remarks. Later that evening seniors reunited for commencement exercises at 8 p.m. in the field- house. After the invocation given by Student Senate Presi- dent Bob Young, addresses were given by each of the vale- dictorians, Kathy Allen, Susan Feingold and Jane Marshall. Following the addresses, Dr. Karl Hertz, principal, and Tom Krajewski presented the class. Diplomas were given by Super- intendent Dr. Wallace Under- wood and the School Board Members.

After enduring the sultry heat of the field- house while waiting his turn, Tim Walsh finally makes his way back to his seat. Flying food, crowded tables cause chaos, mass confusion in cafeteria “Grrrp . . Gosh, am I starving! If I don ' t get something down my throat soon, I ' ll die of hunger. I ' ll be so glad when Ol ' Grumpy gets done with this boring lecture so I can head on down to lunch. Mmmm ... I can’t wait to sink my teeth into a sweet, chunky candy bar. Bbbringg ... Oh good, there ' s the bell! Time to eat, let me out!” Making a quick get away out the door, Fatty Flora found herself squashed in between a crowd of starved kids headed straight for the cafeteria. Clutching tightly to her few belong- ings, she managed to make it safely around the corner without getting trampled. ‘‘Pheew! That was some walk! I still cannot seem to catch my br . . br . . breath. Who ' d ever think that strolling around the corner could be so dangerous. All this excitement has really worked up my appetite. Right now I could probably eat a big horse, but by the look of things, I guess it’s a choice between Salis- bury steak or something from the salad bar. Well, if I plan on getting much studying done, I better not waste anymore time standing in the salad bar line and just settle for Salisbury steak. I better hurry up and get in line before it’s not a matter of choice anymore. I really don’t feel up to eating yesterday’s left-overs!” Guided by the tempting aroma of fried steak, Flora inched her way closer to the food. At last she was within arm’s reach of her steaming pattie, but before she could even bat an eye some scoundrel from behind had de- cided to claim it as his own. From then on things went downhill! Denied of her Salisbury steak, Flora settled for a less exciting burger. Trying to liven up its simple taste seemed to be a good idea, until in the attempt, the dispenser burst and the ket- chup squirted everywhere. Completely cov- ered with ketchup, Flora nudged her way through the crowd to the john. Amid the smoke-clinging smog, Flora tried desperately to elbow her way through the overpopulated quarters to the sink to rinse the food off her face. On the way back to her table, Flora seemed to be the target of open fire as scoops of mashed potatoes filled the air around her. Em- barrassed and confused by all the commotion, Flora unknowingly headed in the wrong direc- tion and ended up sitting at the wrong table. Too busy gulping down her food and trying to get some last minute studying done, Flora didn’t realize this until she noticed a sudden hush and looked up to see a hundred unfamil- iar eyes staring at her. Low and behold, there Flora was the center of attraction. Extremely frustrated she jumped up from her seat, grabbed hold of her tray and, of course, her itsy-bitsy cheat sheets and turned to leave, when " WHAMMO” she was bebeed in the face by some flying peas.

Once the embarrass- ment has decreased, you gropingly find a seat in the back row and start looking for any friendly faces among the blank stares of so many con- fused freshmen. In the back of your mind, you faintly hear the murmur of your teacher ' s pep talk on what you may be covering that year.

As the weeks slide by and you have already completed the “Search for Identity” unit and the mock trial determining the guilt of Montresor in Edgar Allan Poe ' s “The Cask of Amontillado " , you be- gin to wonder and panic about the term paper. Once your teacher has assured you that there is no need for concern until next semester, you decide to postpone your nervous breakdown and proceed to the Scarlet Letter. Some units later you receive your first handout pertaining to choice of topics. You gasp, " Oh, no. The term paper is here!” You re- alize that from this day forward, until you receive your grade on your final draft, you will have no peace of mind. Once the excitement is over, with the bibliography completed, the year begins to wind down and you again return to the Themes book and prepare for your senior year. Accompanied with “senioritis " your final year is here at last ... a semester of English composition and an additional semester class of your choice. Unfortunately, you are one of the unlucky students who are enrolled in the 7:00 class. In order to meet graduation requirements, you are compelled to rise with the birds and go to school to learn how to write various forms of compositions. After one semester of an endless su pply of words strung loosely to- gether in sentence structure, you move on to a semester of Dramat- ics, Journalism, English, or World Literature, Speech, or Devel- opmental Reading.

" Communication . . .” Sometimes even when groups of people try to get together, lack of communication becomes a barrier. The Student Senate pro- vided a link for the cooperation of the students and administration. “It ' s a building thing, " said se- nior Bob Young, Student Senate president. “You try to improve each year, and it’s an organiza- tion that really works for the stu- dents.” Meeting either before or after school every two weeks, the 62 Student Senate members along with Mr. Hal Coppage, sponsor, discussed plans and organized ways of carrying them out. The Senate worked to revise the constitution and add several new amendments outlining procedures for the future years. Special attention was focused on election rules. Numerous student exchanges were held again this year where Senate members were able to at- tend different schools. When they returned, members were asked to write a report about the differ- ences in the schools and what new ideas could be learned. The Senate’s Christmas project this year was a trip to the West Lake Special Education Co- operative. There they visited the classrooms and had a chance to talk to the children and entertain them with stories and a visit from Santa Claus. The main responsibilities of the Senate were organizing Homecoming and running the elections. Other duties included supervising money making projects in the school such as bake sales and sucker sales. Along with the administration, they authorized school dances.

Student Senate 41 As I closed the curtains be- hind me, I suddenly wondered what I was doing amid all of the mechanical levers and the abundant names of the candi- dates running for office. The seemingly hundreds of politi- cians names all appeared as if they were calling out “VOTE FOR ME!” My eyes scanned the machine before I made my choices. A sudden feeling of claustrophobia began to over- take me as I voted in the ’76 election. As I arrived home, I col- lapsed in my dad’s Lazy-Boy and ordered my butler, James, to fetch me a bottle of Miller. After I was comfortable, I made my way to the T.V. set to watch the election returns. The monotony of John Chancellor’s election returns seemed endless, and I soon found myself resorting to toothpicks to keep my eyes open. I soon drifted off to sleep, dreaming of what it would be like to be running for a political office such as President. Even though my schedule would be very busy, I would go to all the different schools to talk to the students. I would even find myself a campaign manager to help me set up special kinds of meetings! I would also go to all of the big towns and cities to tell every- one about my big campaign promises! I was really impressed when the Republican candi- date for Senator in Indiana, Richard Lugar, flew in by heli- copter and landed in the horseshoe to explain his cam- paign stands. The Democratic candidate Vance Hartke’s daughter-in-law, also came to talk to the student body. Both candidates gave interesting presentations, but they only left the potential voters more confused. I remember when I watched the debates on TV I could just picture myself debating Demo- cratic Presidential candidate Jimmy Carter and Republican candidate, Gerald Ford. I am sure, though, that I would be a stronger candidate. I wouldn’t put my foot in my mouth as Gerald Ford did by saying Po- land wasn’t dominated by the Soviet Union. I also wouldn’t give any interviews to Playboy magazine. Boy, did the voters ever get down on Carter for his interview when he said that he had looked at all women with lust. I also would not have to walk around with a big Ultra- Brite smile or sell my peanuts to win votes. I would be the best candidate this country had! Just think if I really was elected PRESIDENT! I can al- most hear it now, “La- dies and Gentlemen, the next President of the United States of America is Mr. Presley Dent! " I awoke just in time to hear the final elec- tion returns on TV. Af- ter a long night, it only seemed to take a few minutes to read all of the final votes. The re- sults of the senator races seemed as though they took for- ever to be announced. The tired and worn- out broadcaster’s voice paused as he made the an- nouncement, “Jimmy Carter has won the Presidency.” Exhausted, I made my way up the steps to my room. Sud- denly I stopped and thought about what will happen to our country in the next four years. Will he keep his promises and be a good leader? How will the people accept him as a presi- dent? Oh well ... I guess I will just have to wait and see. 42 Elections If I were elected President, I would LEFT UP AND AWAY. Getting ready to leave after his presentation in the auditorium.

Thespians, Drama Clubs offer chance to gain experience in play production Have you ever wondered where all the Barbara Streisands and Robert Redfords come from? Where did they go to school? Did they ever perform in a school play? And what about all the big producers and directors? How did they become active in theater? Many students become in- volved in drama through their school. This year a new club was formed to give those interested in theater a chance to become in- volved in play production. Drama Club, sponsored by Mrs. Renee Kouris, consisted of 110 stu- dents. Elections were held in the beginning of the year and junior Mary Dixon became president. By working on various crews for the plays, students gained first hand knowledge of the the- ater. In addition, each member was required to sell four tickets to both the spring and fall play. Dues of $1 were given by each student to help pay for extra ac- tivities and productions. An autumn hayride at Tinley Park, followed by a campfire din- ner and marshmellow roast, was one of the outings taken by the club. Members also spent some of their Saturdays painting fences. In return, they received donations for the club. Other money making projects included a bake sale. Mrs. Kouris de- scribed the club as " very, very active " and was " quite pleased” with it. Those in Thespian troop 2861 were considered the " elite members” of Drama Club. The Thespians, a national organi- zation of students concerned with drama, was composed of 12 students. To gain membership to the society, students worked dili- gently on the plays and received one point for every ten hours work, with 100 hours required for initiation. A banquet was held in the spring to initiate new members. So, believe it or not, even people like Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, Donald Sutherland 44 Thespians, Drama LEFT: LIGHT UP.

What is it? Where can I find some? In the Pub? Third hour around deadline time? Paragon staffers showed creativ- ity through writing copy blocks, cap- tions, and headlines. Imagination was also expressed by taking pic- tures and fitting layouts. Even though there was a short- age of staffers, 30 editors, interns, and photographers worked together and strived toward perfection in their ultimate goal, a unique book that would reflect the theme, " We ' ve got a lot”. Many late after- noons were spent in the Pub, devel- oping pictures, sharing ideas with staff adviser, Mrs. Nancy Hastings, working on copy or captions, re- writing, re-writing, re-writing, and re-writing . . . Time was saved and efficiency achieved through the organization of a Promotion staff, a group of sophomores who had hopes of being on Paragon staff the following year. These students were taught the basics o f yearbook organization to prevent total confusion once they held responsibilities as staff mem- bers. Meetings were held every two weeks, not only for lectures and quizzes, but also for campaigns and plans to promote and sell the book. Supply and demand . . . Interns became quite acquainted with this idea, often reminded by their editors of upcoming deadlines, which al- ways seemed to creep up from be- hind and suddenly appear. To staf- fers, a deadline, D-day, meant extra hours of mindbending work. Ten- sion peaked as all rushed to finish in time. Editors worked late nights, carefully examining each spread to eliminate imperfections such as spelling or typing errors, layout mis- takes, or non-fitting headlines. A great burden finally seemed to lift from the minds of editors and in- terns as the spreads were ready to be mailed at last. The security and relief soon would disappear, how- ever, as another deadline lurked around the corner. Birthday parties and Kris Kringles . . . The continuous hard work was relieved by moments of fun. Several days were set aside for birthday parties and other holiday celebrations. Around Christmas, staffers secretly exchanged gifts with their Kris Kringles, giving and receiving anything from a brownie to a bottle of perfume. All the mys- tery came to an end as identities were revealed at the staff Christmas party, where the Promotion staff performed a holiday skit. Santa even arrived to hand out the many presents. Through all the conflicts and crises, such as not having enough good pictures for a spread and run- ning out of type sheets on a dead- line day, the staffers finally made it. Once again, all the struggling seemed to have been worth it. ABOVE LEFT: MAKE IT FIT. With the help of a proportion wheel, junior Leslie Goodman crops a picture to make it fit the layout.

Senior Cindy Lisle calls a local business to set up an appointment for an advertise- ment picture.

I’ll never get it done!” Despite all these problems, CRIER faithfully made its appearance every two weeks. Every other Friday during sec- ond hour, CRIER was distributed throughout the school. For 15c stu- dents could find out what ' s going on in school concerning groups, athletics, and even who wants what for Christmas! The 24 staff members put in long hours not only in the Pub, but also at the Calumet Press, where many Thursday nights were spent pre- paring the paper for sale the next morning. To finance the paper local businesses were asked to place ads in CRIER and Thanksgiving thank- fuls and Christmas wishes were sold, along with Valentine’s Day Carnations. During the last five years the main objective of CRIER was to earn the All-American award, which it did for the first time in their 11 year his- tory. The award was given to the pa- per for the second semester of the 75-76 school year. Mrs. Nancy Hast- ings, CRIER advisor commented, " We’ve worked so hard and long, I ' m really happy we’ve finally re- ceived national recognition.” “As long as we can keep up the quality and dedication, we have the poten- tial to win the award again this year,” according to senior Nan Sut- ter, Editor-in-Chief. Eventually the cries subsided, stories were turned in and papers were sold. Forgetting extra orders and other setbacks were overcome, and the CRIER went on for another year. RIGHT: FINAL CHECK.

A blackboard, chalk, and a draftsman ' s angle help Mrs. Doris Johnson teach the funda- mentals of geometric construction to her students. As a veteran student of math- ematics passing by the classrooms where math is being taught, you no longer hear reverberations of multi- plication tables or apple and orange story problems. Instead, you hear such phrases as, " How do you fac- tor polynomials? What is the second derivative of the function 5x 2 -3x + 4? You mean this machine can ac- tually do proofs?” For graduation, students are re- quired to have at least two credits in one math course ranging from Gen- eral Math I to Calculus. While many students enroll in General Math or Algebra I to fill their requirements, some took a class involving prac- Math. For those students who en- joyed this basic math course, stu- dents could later enroll in Computer Math to learn how to write and punch a program. Others headed to college found need to take Geome- try and Algebra II. Math was used by many as a building block for tools needed to prepare them for careers ahead in such fields as engineering, architecture, and business. In order to combine the fields of math and science, Math-Physics was again of- fered to interested students. Math concepts proved to be a challenge to most whether they wanted it that way or not. The avail- ability of calculators helped many tests, if they were allowed. Basic principles, however, could not be plugged into a portable computer with the touch of a button, and they still had to be dealt with. Triangles and parallel lines, co- sine and sine functions, and the quadratic formula were all too famil- iar to the many math majors. As the year rolled by, the seemingly end- less supply of coefficients, rational numbers, and equations came to an end, and you put your brain in a three month holding pattern, unless of course .... you enrolled in the summer Trigonometry class or were forced to make up a course you failed to pass during the regular Math 51 Germs attack student bodu “Hup . . .

Ac- customed to nursing aches and pains that usually accom- pany big exams, she switched roles in a matter of seconds from Detective Lieutenant Col- umbo to Nurse Florence Nightingale. First, Frankie Faker ran in scratching all over. “I think I have the measles!” he said. When she saw the red spots, she knew Frankie wasn’t fak- ing this time, but was really ill. Then Mindy Moaner stag- gered into the nurse’s office coughing and blowing her nose. “Mindy,” said Mrs. Pru- zin, “What are you moaning about this time? " I think I’ve caught a bad cold!” cried Mindy. “I want to go home right now!!” Before she could walk out the door, Mrs. Pruzin heard the awful screams of Helen Hypo- chondriac. “I think I’ve got the swine flu! Please give me a shot, " she cried. “That’s impossible! I’m sorry but you should have gone to Wicker Park yesterday. The shot has been dis- continued,” exclaimed Nurse Pruzin.

" " Mary, I don’t understand why it is just called the P.T.A.?” “Yea, I know what you mean! What’s the matter with the stu- dents? If it weren’t for the kids, there wouldn’t be a P.T.A. !” “You’re right.” We should have some say about what goes on in our school!” After attending a state P.T.A. convention, several members of the P.T.A. board noticed that a trend had developed where P.T.A. ' s were including students in their membership with equal votes and responsibilities. As a result, a P.T.S.A. (Parent Teacher Student Association) in Munster was then organized. According to senior Claudia Mott, the purpose of the group is “to put students on an equal basis with teachers and parents. We discuss major problems like vandalism and try to find solu- tions. For once I feel like I am on the same level as parents and teachers.” Besides organizing the annual Open House, the P.T.S.A. held a rummage sale in October. Money collected was distributed into the P.T.S.A. funds. The fund made it possible for the P.T.S.A. to send out a newsletter to every high school family which informed them of school news and the up- coming events. The P.T.S.A. also sponsored a luncheon for the faculty at the beginning of school. Officers were President Mrs. Barbara Waxman, Vice-President Mrs. Charlotte Brauer, Secretary Mrs. Arlene Larson and Treasurer Mrs. Marilyn Branco. Several stu- dents served as board members and as co-chairmen of various committees including the mem- bership and publicity committee. Meetings were held monthly to discuss different projects and activities. " Rap-Sessions” were also held to discuss the school’s major problems. “I think it’s bet- ter with students involved in the P.T.A. Teachers get to hear views right from the students,” summed up Claudia Mott. A " Careers Night” was also held by the P.T.S.A. so students could learn advantages and dis- advantages of various careers. “Mary, I’m really glad we’ve got a P.T.S.A.” “Yea, I really feel like an adult when I’m able to talk to parents and teachers on an equal basis with equal rights.” LEFT: SIGN HERE.

FRONT ROW: Honor Societies Scholastic abilities, grades, creativity set membership She gazed down proudly at the golden flame of the candle. All the journalism work of the past year finally seemed to be useful. The summer before her senior year she found herself standing in a castle courtyard outside of Krefeld, Germany. When it comes time for her to graduate, she is sure to be seen wearing a golden tassel hanging from her cap. What makes her different from the other kids at school? She’s an honor student, in National Honor Society (NHS) and Quill and Scroll. It all began with her participa- tion in a certain area of journal- ism. She noticed she had a talent for writing and contributed greatly to the journalism depart- ment. Also, with a grade-point av- erage well over 2.7, she found herself in the middle of a tradi- tional candlelight initiation cere- mony, along with other new mem- bers of Quill Scroll. In addition to a talent with a pen and paper, she had an ex- ceptional background in German and fluency of the language as well. Along with other German and Spanish students, she took a preliminary test at I.U. Northwest, testing her ability to use the skills taught in class. Because her scores were adequately high, ap- plications and teacher recom- mendations were sent to I.U. for consideration of her capabilities to study abroad. After the inter- view, the final step, the waiting paid off, and she finally received an answer by mail along with Jane Marshall, Nan Sutter, Mau- reen Ahn, Rhonda Brauer, and Dan Zajac, who would spend about seven and one half weeks in Krefeld, Germany, and also, Kay Samels, who would be sent to San Luis Potosi, in Mexico. Furthermore, because she had maintained a 3.2 grade-point average and was active in school activities, she was chosen to be one of the 90 members of NHS. Under the sponsorship of Miss Annette Wisniewski, math teacher, the society was open to juniors and seniors who dis- play ed high leadership ability and character and followed national rules. Profits from bakesales helped pay for certificates, gold seals on diplomas, membership cards, the $300 scholarship for one of the members, and gold tassels. Since she made it to Germany through the I.U. Honors program she had no opportunity to partici- pate in the program offered by the Munster Booster Club. This program sent students overseas for five weeks. Also, along with Dan McHale, Rosalie Pfister, Pat Seifert, Nan Sutter, Sue Taylor, and Dan Za- jac, she was a National Merit Semi-Finalist and represented the top of the country ' s students that took the PSAT’s. In the end, her work paid off. She realized this as she took her final step toward her gold-sealed diploma, the goal of all her hard work throughout high school. Honor Societies 57 You are filling out your schedule for next school year, when suddenly a thought occurs to you; maybe I should take a foreign language? How could it help me? What should I take? You decide to think it over. You are desperately debating whether or not to take it, as images of touring the Louvre in Paris, danc- ing in an Oktoberfest in Munich, or running with the bulls in Pomplona form in your mind. Finally you de- cide that these dreams are trying to tell you something. " Take a lan- guage, you’ll get something out of it, and perhaps you will tour Europe some day and be able to communi- cate with the natives. " Now the per- vading question is, which should you take? You decide, after talking to other students studying these languages, to take all three. The first few weeks of Spanish, French, and German are spent learning basic grammar and simple phrases like " Wie heisst du?” “Ich heisse Johann Humperdinck. " Before, when you heard a per- son speak one of these languages fluently, all the words seemed to run together, but now they are slowly becoming intelligible. Besides studying sentence formation basic grammar, or vocabulary, you read narratives, play roles in dialogues, and give oral reports. In order to get an idea of what the countries asso- ciated with these languages are like, you get a taste of their culture by viewing film strips, studying their histories, or making pinatas as indi- vidual projects in Spanish class. " Taking a foreign language makes a person not so narrow minded, and it widens ones view of the world,” stated Miss Wanda Kno- chel, Spanish teacher. Studying an- other language can also improve your awareness of the sentence structure and grammar of your own native language. After several years of con- fronting new grammar rules and the tongue twisting words of these lan- guages, you find that you no longer have to change English into Span- ish or translate German into English. You can think and talk di- rectly in a foreign language. Now is the time to put your knowledge to the test. At the Coffee Klatsch you bravely walk up to a visitor from Germany and you begin to say, " Guten Tag. Ich heisse Eva.” You want to continue, but your over- confidence fouls you up. Instead of saying, “Are you having a good time, " completely in German, you nervously mumble it mixing the three languages. The visitor under- stands the mistake and tells you that maybe you should stick with one language, for even if you have the knowledge of one foreign language, you’ll get a chance to use it some day.

Almost everyone at one time or another has had a desire or a dream of visiting or liv- ing in another land. Just picture touring Germany ' s countryside, or dining in a real French restau- rant in downtown Paris, while at the same time attending school in one of 60 countries. The Ameri- can Field Service (AFS) offers students such opportunities to experience other countries’ cul- tures and return home with last- ing ties and memories of other people in other parts of the world. Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Fredericks, the AFS Student Club, as part of the Adult Chap- ter, had its doors open to all races and creeds. Members could be sent overseas on the Americans Abroad program, costing $1 500 a year or $1 1 00 for the summer. Trips were financed by the students in addition to aid given by the Adult Chapter and its sponsor, Munster Rotary Club. Senior Bob Young took part in the summer program which led him to Istanbul, Turkey for five weeks. With the help of the Mun- ster Rotary Club, senior Linda Buchanan finished her last year of high school in Queensland, Australia. To help meet costs, members conducted a door-to- door selling spree of Burger King whopper coupons for $1 a piece. Also, a dance-a-thon was held, which grossed a total of $500. To help get their minds off work, a relaxing hayride was held at Trails Bend Stable and parties were held in honor of Manuella Boutoilla, from Clermont Ferrand, France, Yuko Hirata, a foreign ex- change student from Osaka, Ja- pan, and Steen Peterson the stu- dent exchange student of Denmark. Those who wanted to enrich their knowledge of France but did not want to leave the country dur- ing the school year participated in French Club, sponsored by the French teacher, Mrs. Alyce Wackowski. The 30 members, un- der the leadership of President, junior Suzanne Scott, visited the Magic Pan in Chicago to dine on French cuisine such as crepes and attended " Christmas Around the World” at the Museum of Science and Industry. Proceeds from bake sales and $1 dues paid by each member, helped finance the field trips. For the second year in a row, a few select members waited anx- iously to study and tour France for five weeks during the summer. Stops in Paris, London, and the Rivera highlighted the trip. After all, it is possible for dreams to come true, and both AFS and French Club helped prove it. Whether home or abroad students were given the chance to further their education of other lands and cultures. ABOVE: PICTURE IT.

What’s all the noise coming from those rooms down the hall? ’’Who built the pyramids?” “What is upper-middle class?” ‘‘How does quantity demanded or quantity supplied affect price?” " What are some childhood problems?” " When was the Progressive Era? " The answers could be found in one of eight classes in the Social Studies department: World History, Sociology, Psychology, Advanced Psychology, Government, U.S. His- tory, Economics, or Introduction to Social Sciences. Underclassmen were introduced to Social Studies through In- troduction to Social Sciences or World History. Dealing with prob- lems, international, national, and in- dividual, was the concept behind In- troduction to Social Sciences. Case studies, along with selections from magazines, pamphlets and films were used to obtain examples of problems for class discussion. World History basically dealt with the history of the world from the Stone Age to WWII. Moving along the history line, U.S. History fol- lowed. Overcoming the monotony of general units, the study covered not only the major events of history, but also delved into the specifics of the United States’ first two hundred years. Small human interest in- cidents were introduced through group discussions. To give the stu- dents more freedom, options were offered.

Slightly off the track of pure his- tory is Government where students learn how the country is run. To ac- tually experience the complexity of writing and legislating bills, the se- niors became Congressmen and lobbyists during the six weeks of Hop-Cal, a game simulating Congress. To fulfill a final required credit in Social Studies, seniors had the op tion of taking Economics. Through various projects, students were in- troduced to the basics of Econom- ics, including the price mechanisms and supply and demand. Under- standing the system of American business and the stock market were the objectives as students followed the progress of various corporations. The value of school, family, edu- cation and religion was studied in Sociology. Topics ranged from peer groups and their affect on other people, to optical illusions which were contemplated and discussed, as well as “who are the richest people in the world” and “how did they make their fortune?” Related to Sociology was Psychology, which was “designed to develop a curios- ity of human behavior and promote self-understanding, " according to Mrs. Gerda McCloskey, Psychology teacher. Many theories were dis- cussed concerning emotional devel- opment, learning processes and the vocational aspect of Psychology. Unlike in elementary school, So- cial Studies is not just learning the states’ capitols or coloring maps. There were many paths to explore from the facts of History to the theo- ries of Psychology.

Typing was only one of the steps that the members of News Bureau and the staff of Pegasus followed as they attempted to communicate with both the stu- dent body and the entire sur- rounding area. To keep the community in- formed about school activities and events, the News Bureau staff weekly wrote articles to be printed in the local papers.

Jane Rankin also represented the school as she contacted other lo- cal newspapers about school functions. To qualify for their positions, members were required to take Journalism I and submit an appli- cation to sponsor Mrs. Nancy Hastings. Collecting and compiling were also part of the duties of the 14 Pegasus staff members as they made their way through piles of poems, essays, and works of art to put together the school’s own literary magazine. All students were invited to submit up to five of their own works that were then judged by a committee of teach- ers who decided which entries should be printed and which works would win the prizes of- fered by the staff. Three $10 gift certificates from Hegewisch records were awarded for the best poem, essay and artwork.

News Bureau, Pegasus 69 Board Games Game Challenge students to learn strategy, ingenuity Remember the days about ten years ago when you were still in the cavity-prone years? You spent hours playing games like Candyland and Chutes and Lad- ders. Eventually you worked your way up to more intellectual games like checkers and Par- cheesi. Then about the time you realized you were going to grow twelve ways whether you ate Wonder bread or not, many of your interests began to change. Nevertheless, you continued to play board games. Many students have found that board games are not only for little children, but also for more experienced players who wish to test their ingenuity. Games such as Risk, Monopoly, Masterpiece, and chess, unlike the ones from your childhood years, require more skillfull planning than luck. To promote the game of rooks and bishops, the Chess Club was formed. The ten members met every Wednesday in the Psychol- ogy room to practice for up- coming meets. Sponsored by Mr. Jeffrey Graves, chemistry teacher, and Mr. Bryan Young, biology teacher, the club offered membership to any student inter- ested in chess, regardless of his knowledge of the game. With freshman Stan Zygmunt as presi- dent, the club hosted a tourna- ment in February at which ten schools participated by invitation. Strategy lessons at weekly prac- tices and competitive practice at meets provided hopes of making club members accomplished players by the end of the year. Although there were not any clubs for the other games, they were still enjoyed by a large num- ber of students. Whether plan- ning your strategy at Risk, cap- turing a pawn, or building an empire in Monopoly, board games can help you pass away boring hours. In additon, board games, unlike hopscotch and horse-shoes, can be played at any age. ABOVE: CHESS CLUB FRONT ROW: Les Kistler, Stan Zygmunt, Troy Hudson.

I’d like to go into marine biology in college. What? You say I should get into Project Biology? Hmmmm. How would I go about this? Yes, I have a 3.0 grade point average. Oh, I also need a teacher ' s recommendation? You say they’re only taking 24 kids? Who did you say were the teachers again? Oh yes, the biology team— Mr. Brian Young, Mr. John Edington, and Mr. Art Haverstock. It starts before school! Oh, at 7:20, that’s not too bad— and for credit! O.K., Mrs. Braun, thanks a lot. I can’t wait to tell my friends about this class, Project Biology. " " Hey Annie, listen. Did you ever think of joining Project Biology? You know, they get to go to Florida. Yeah, they ' re leaving March 31 and coming home April 9. For $200— you can’t beat that! Oh, I hear they didn’t make enough money from their annual Christmas greenery sales so the kids have to pay for their own tickets at Disneyworld. Yea, they get two free days there to do whatever they want. I also hear they take the kids about 8 miles out in the ocean to go snorkeling and diving. Oh, besides going camping and doing lab work at Big Pine Key, Flor- ida, the class went on a weekend camping trip on September 18 and 19 to learn how to snorkel and to learn the ecological succession of the Dunes National Lakeshore. There’s hardly any homework and a few quizzes over lectures and film strips. The term paper you do each semester counts for just about all of your grade. Yea, we also miss three days of school to attend classes at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. I do think we should enroll in this class. You did well in biology. We’d have fun camping out and traveling to Florida. Wow, there’s Mary. I think I’ll tell her about it. So think about it, O.K.?” ABOVE: PREPARATIONS.

Instead of viewing the fish along with other visitors, juniors Leslie Dunn and Mary Beth Gulden see how the Shedd Aquarium operates during one of the field trips Project Biology 73 Picture yourself looking into a microscope. Squirming, long, oval- shaped creatures, called " amoebas” by your teacher, are swimming under the lens. Some- how, however, your mind blocks out these small animals; instead, the en- tire Science Department comes into focus. With the lens set on 10X, biology comes into view first. Biology had been a self-paced course, covering 30 units, including fertilization, gen- etics, evolution, photosynthesis, and animal classification. This year the biology team decided to drop the independent system, since many freshmen could not manage After the turmoil of the change at the end of the first semester, stu- dents settled down to work with their own textbooks. With the ex- ception of a few who were already ahead of the others, students were able to get a fresh start. Divided into three groups for reading, labs, dis- cussion, and lecture, they were able to finish before summer. As your freshman year blurs, you set the microscope on 50X, and a second year scienc e course appears. Oh, no! It is your first day at chemistry, and you are greeted by at least 100 elements with names you can not even pronounce. As the element chart became more fam- ilier, so did the molecular weights and structures. The class was di- vided into two groups for lectures and labs, offering both theoretical and descriptive options. After readjusting the lens to 100X, a third year science course focuses. There you are, looking like an expert physicist, clutching a micro- meter, a meter stick, and a calcu- lator. Such specialized equipment was often needed for labs, which helped students relate equations and prove theories. Topics, ranging from the creation of music to the side effects of centripetal force, necessitated alert and active minds. After zooming in for closer view with the lens set on 200X, you find yourself enrolled in a fourth year ad- vanced science course. Advanced Physics taught se- niors how to solve college-level problems, covering topics such as dimensional analysis and relativity. Advanced Biology students cov- ered a different aspect of biology each six weeks. Microbiology was introduced first, and students spent approximately 80% of class time conducting diagnostic tests in order to identify their unknown organisms. Mice cages were assigned to students who were to clean, feed, and water the specimens twice weekly before the day of operation. Students learned how to suc- cessfully perform surgery on the small animals. Hormone injections were administered for two weeks. Autopsies were then performed to observe the effect of the injections on the hormone-producing glands. Afterwards, students were given past data and were told to write a term paper based on their own in- terpretation of the information provided. The last six weeks dealt with fu- ture science and its effects on so- ciety. Lectures and visual aids illus- trated moral problems involving overpopulation, genetic research, and mercy killing. Class members were also to form their own solu- tions to life-like problems. Term pa- pers about cyronics or mind control were also a requirement. In relation to mind control . . . you realize you must continue with your lab. Your vision clears as you adjust the focus knob on your mi- croscope and you again turn your attention to those strange-looking amoebas . . .

One day seemed to last forever, and he was tired of being here, tired of seeing the same old faces. Then a smile lit up on his face. He re- membered today was when his newly-found friends of the Gold Teens Chapter came from Mun- ster to visit the patients. The 20 members of the group and their sponsor, Mrs. Gerda McClosky, psychology teacher, met twice a month at Munster Public Library, where plans for their trip were discussed. Once a month the group offered its time to visit and entertain patients at Beatty Memorial Hospital in West- ville, Ind. The purpose of the club was to help the mentally ill and to show the patients that there was someone who cared. Many of the patients didn’t have any families, and this was their only opportu- nity for communication with the outside world. However, Gold Teens were not the only students that volun- teered their time to help others. Under the direction of Mrs. Jean Lautz, Candy Stripers worked one day every week, usu- ally from 4 to 8 p.m., assisting the nursing staff at the Munster Com- munity Hospital. The girls ran er- rands for the nurses and patients, passed out food trays and water pitchers, and helped to discharge patients. Candy striping was open to any student at least 16 years old, who had a note from the family doctor stating they were in good health. After a two hour orienta- tion meeting, girls then worked with experienced Candy Stripers until they also became well ac- quainted with the procedures. Working with the Gold Teens and Candy Stripers, students were able to learn the meaning of helping others who were in some way less fortunate than them- selves. Gold Teens, Candystripers 77 OEA, DE Students get jobs through knowledge of business market “Do I look all right? Do you think the interview will go well? I’m so nervous! I really want to get this job. With a little help from Mr. Ken Kirkpatrick, Mr. D. Min- iuk, and Miss Janice Kostelnik and my two years of participation in DE and OEA, I just might! " Approximately 100 juniors participated in Sales and Market- ing and joined Distributive Educa- tion (DE) Clubs of America in hopes of becoming one of about 20 students in Senior DE. Then he or she went to work and re- ceived his or her grade according to an employer’s evaluation of his or her work. Members competed in a Ca- reer Development Conference with 10 other regional schools at Valparaiso to test their knowl- edge of the market in 15 areas such as math, spelling, human re- lations, and window display. If one received a first or second, he entered the state competition that lasted a weekend at French Lick. Third place qualifiers at re- gional went to state as alter- nates. During the competition Miss Indiana DECA was chosen on the basis of poise and etiquette. While members of DE contin- ued their education in business, participants in (OEA) Office Edu- cational Association concen- trated on office and secretarial skills. Under the leadership of President, senior Elsa Luera, the club attended workshops and conferences during the summer and the regular school year. Bake sales, a trike race, and a carwash helped finance these activities. Also, a Spring Banquet and a Christmas coffee break for the girls’ employers were held. “Well, I got the job!

With his eyes glued to the keyboard in- stead of his manuscript senior Tod Elias pecks away during Typing I. Business ■N Most students only picture the continual clattering of typewriter keys and the monotonous drone of repeated dictation when they think of business classes. However, there is much more to the Business De- partment besides just typing and shorthand. Courses in Consumer Education, Sales and Marketing, Business Law, Accounting, and, Business Machines helped open pathways leading to jobs and ca- reers for students. Whether inter- ested in entering the business world before or directly after graduation or pursuing a career after going to college, courses in business offered practical skills and information that could not only be useful but applicable. Typing, offered for two years, started slowly with “a,s,d,f” and “j,k,l,;” drills gradually increasing in difficulty until students could com- plete manuscripts and business let- ters for others as well as them- selves. Speed and accuracy were major factors to those interested in obtaining jobs which were depen- dent upon their skills. In Shorthand I and II students were taught a new alphabet designed to increase their writing speed up to the rate of 110 words per minute, a speed at which most people talk. First semester the basics were learned and during the second semester and year these skills were developed as students gradually improved their speed.

Analyzing data and studying consumer habits to deter- mine what approaches and prod- ucts will best suit the customer ' s needs and the retailer ' s overhead were also discussed. General Business gave an over- all look at what was involved in busi- ness areas including managing per- sonal checking accounts and what to look for when purchasing insur- ance policies. Accounting, however, involved more of a specialized topic area by teaching the fundamentals of bookkeeping methods and bal- ancing corporations assets and liabilities. Business Law students learned their constitutional rights as minors and the rights of large corporations. Two mock trials were scheduled during the year. In one trial students assumed the responsibilities of at- torneys. On May 1 , Law Day, various professionals were called in to per- form their duties. Taken seriously, business courses offered students many ad- vantages and information that was practical and applicable to the years of work laying ahead of them. Business 83 A typical Monday morning . . . the alarm rings too early ... the ef- fects of a great weekend linger . . . you wish you could stay in bed. Suddenly you remember that today is your premiere as a cadet teacher. The real thing is finally here! Your month of training and preparation is finished. No more trial drills, films, learning tips, or guest speakers teaching you how to handle child- ren of different grade levels. Your mind quickly tries to recall all that you learned. You must remember not to block the view, but to speak as you write, to hold interest; you must not forget to project your voice to the back of the room; and most importantly, you must deserve and demand respect from your young students. Cadet teaching was a two-hour program available to seniors who enjoyed being with children and were interested in teaching. It taught enrolled students the funda- mentals of elementary education and then gave them a chance to ap- ply their skills, while working with a teacher in one of the five community grammar or middle schools. Cadets were used in grades kindergarten through fifth as well as in Music, Reading, Physical Education, and Special Education. They assisted by grading papers, making out lesson plans, designing bulletin boards, and coordinating projects and activ- ities. The student teachers were graded the first six weeks on reports and assignments and the second and third six weeks on evaluations turned into sponsor Miss Jean Raw- son by the individual teachers.

With the aid of rolled-up jeans, funny socks, and a big red nose, senior Tom Krajewski spreads enthusiasm for his classes ' annual Halloween party. Once the shyness and first day jitters were over, student teachers were faced with other difficult situ- ations and problems. Because of a conflict of scheduling between the high school and elementary schools, cadets had a limited time of classroom work with their young pu- pils. Math class also created a diffi- culty for the seniors, because they had to learn all the principles behind a new type math they were not ex- posed to. Discipline problems also creeped up, and many cadets had to review the techniques they were taught, in order to cope with the sit- uations. In January good-byes were exchanged, and a new group had to be prepared to go back to grammar school. 84 Cadet Teaching m mmimmx romom BELOW: A SPOT OF HELP.

You raise your white pom-pom while all the other members raise their red. All eyes are on you as the music drums on . . . In order to pass the semester in Government you have to get a B on the test. So far your best grade has been a C- and you studied for a week in order to get that. You de- cide you only have one option— the famous crib sheet. After the teacher passes out the test, you discreetly pull out a sheet of paper well hidden in the cuff of your sleeve. You ner- vously glance around the class to make sure no one is looking. As you complete the exam you promise yourself that you’ll never cheat again if you can just manage to make it through this one time 0 . . . It ' s a Saturday night and you ' re on your way home from a party at a classmate ' s house. Suddenly in your rearview mirror you see the flashing red lights of a police car. Your friends frantically attempt to stuff gum in your mouth to cover the scent of your breath, while you try to explain why you were weaving down the street. As soon as you stop, you quickly hop out hoping the policeman won’t come by your car. He doesn’t fall for your ploy, however, and not only asks to see your driver ' s license and registra- tion but also begins to search you and your car . . . At one time or another, everyone has been a victim of nervousness. The pressure builds as palms and foreheads become sweaty while weak stomachs are overtaken by a fluttery case of butterflies. Addi- tional symptoms of this common condition are quite apparent in some people who experience a sud- den studder in speech or paralysis of the legs. Others with better con- trol of their emotions might be lucky enough to cover up the nerve-rack- ing feeling of those knots in their overturned stomachs. One would think that with the widespread existence of this com- plication, there would be an immuni- zation, some type of relief. Is there no shot, no medication? There’s just the plain fact that nervousness is a state of emotion, like happiness or excitement. The cure? Well, it lies in the idea that no matter how calm he seems, he’s actually scared to death inside. So, the next time you get a funny twinge in your stomach when you ' re the first to give an oral report in class, just remember that every other student who’s sitting and lis- tening is waiting for his turn with as much anxiety as you.

It’s my turn to wash out the test tubes.” “Do you mean to tell me I have to lecture the Physics class during next hour?” “Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t put any sugar in your coffee.” Being a teacher’s aide was not always a glamorous job or an easy way to get an A. Aides had responsibilities and duties toward their teachers. Being a lab assistant and trying to keep Mr. Graves’ stu- dents’ papers organized was of- ten an all hour job in itself. Be- sides grading papers and labs, the lab assistants were also re- sponsible for keeping the lab as clean as possible and for posting grades, a trust given only to the more reliable student. A test given by Mrs. Joseph, head librarian, concerning the Dewey Decimal System and the location of books and magazines, was mandatory for prominent li- brary aides. Cutting out newspa- per articles for the vertical file along with helping fellow stu- dents find books were also on the list of duties for the aides. Secretarial work was light- ened by both Office and Guid- ance aides. Answering phones, taking messages, and filing took up most of the Office aides’ hour. While in guidance, time was spent addressing envelopes and correcting students’ schedules. Students helping out in other areas such as English, Foreign Language, science and art often found themselves making coffee, running errands, fixing easels, and or mixing paint. The physic’s aides often found themselves in front of the class, teaching, on the average of approximately once every two weeks.

A relatively small class of Historical and Environmental Art students learn how art has changed from prehistoric to Re- naissance to contemporary times and how to analyze art. 90 Art As an author uses his hand and mind to write interesting and cre- ative stories, an artist uses his hands and mind to express himself through sculptures, paintings, silk screen prints, and drawings. Through use of his hands, the novice artist produces objects, be- cause he is interested in art, per- haps to start a career, to expand a hobby, or just to develop a talent. Many people found that taking art courses really did uncover and ex- ercise talented hands. A student first unveiled his crafty hands to the world in Basic Art. Throughout the year the student was introduced to the fundamentals of art, including color, composition, form, perception, design, and also the various fields of art. His skills were demonstrated through projects such as sketching still lifes, molding plaster hands or feet, or drawing compositions to show tex- ture and shading, and making people pots. The student who uncovered the fundamentals of design and com- position may have chosen from seven electives, courses which could develop his individual interests. If his talent lay in sketching, he may have enrolled in Drawing and Painting. In this course the student discovered how to apply different techniques through various projects. These included carica- tures, which are drawings of facial distortions entailing the use of a grid and methods of shading. These drawings then decorated the hall as passers-by recognized faces of people they knew. In order to get away from the flat dimensions of art, a student may have taken Dimensional Design, where he could have created mo- biles and sculptures out of such ma- terials as plaster, wood, and metal. Art not only involves drawing and sculpting, but also printing. In Printmaking class the young artist worked on a variety of projects, ranging from wood and linoleum cuts to silkscreen pri nts. These prints could be used to make silk- screen T-shirts or Christmas cards. If the student wanted to get in- volved with the commercial aspects of art design, he may have enrolled in Visual and Applied Design. Acting like a commercial artist, the student earned “money” in the form of points and competed against other students ' designs for winning post- ers, displays, and cover designs. Through visuals and reports in Historical and Environmental Art, students learned to appreciate and interpret works of famous artists. Finally, after taking five semes- ters of art courses and receiving a teacher recommendation, the more advanced student could develop in- dividual interests in Art Projects. By this time the hands of the novice artist had developed, grasp- ing a brush or molding materials with increased experience, pa- tience, and skill, fully developing his talent. ABOVE: CUT IT OUT.

VT lEmMWL i inkiLb 92 Industrial Arts While gallivanting through the halls, unusual noises come to your attention and your investigative in- stincts are aroused. Opening the door, you enter a world of whirring engines, amps, T-squares, and cop- ing saws. Here you can find future mechanics and electrical experts, who are busy learning skills in main- tenance and designing. Because they know these skills students can save money in car and electrical re- pairs. You have just found the world of Industrial Arts. Before learning how to put an engine and a carburetor together in Power Mechanics, classroom work and instruction are necessary to fa- miliarize you with the many different parts of the engine so well that you could repeat them blindfolded. Only then can you be ready to tackle the methods of repair. Various cars, with mechanical difficulties, were brought in, on which you utilized your mechanical skills. Suddenly you spark an interest in electricity. With the addition of a new electronics teacher, Mr. Toma- sula, the electronics curriculum was in for some changes. After getting a charge out of seeing your voice pat- tern on an oscilloscope and making magnets to show how electricity is produced, you may take Electron- ics. Here you learn how transistor radios and complex computer cir- cuits work. Measuring of electricity is done by volt, amp, and ohm meters. Ever since you were a child, and your dad showed you the blueprints of your family’s new home, you were curious about how these plans were devised. This curiosity finally in- fluenced you to take Drafting. Here you are given problem sheets con- cerning the basic skills of drafting. To those who had never come in contact with drafting, the lines and measurements of the drafting board do not mean a thing. However, by using T-squares, angles, and com- passes, you create plans for build- ings, rooms, and p arks. Next you walk into the Wood Shop and sit down among the smell of sawdust and the buzzing of power saws. Sitting in front of you is a piece of wood. As you look at this shapeless block, pictures of foot- stools, bowls, and tables go through your head. You put your ideas to- gether and finally, after endless days of sawing, sanding, and nail- ing, you finish with a product that helps to determine your grade. With the ringing noise of the saws still in your ears, your investi- gation takes you into the Metals Class. Here sheet metal, aluminum, and steel are transformed into such items as table legs, spotlight reflec- tors, and weight lifting benches. Projects are completed with the help of engine lathes, welding, and sheet metal equipment. In addition to classroom instruc- tion and individual work on projects, in some courses, guest speakers were invited from different schools such as the Lincoln Technical Insti- tute of Indianapolis and the De-Vry Institute in Chicago to talk about the school itself or the requirements needed to enter. After exiting the world of Indus- trial Arts, you realized that your in- vestigation had led to the discovery which would reveal your talents in this technical world.

And I thought all there was to marriage was a wed- ding ring. Home Economics classes provided interested students a chance to develop their talents in cooking and sewing and to learn the fundamentals of running a house- hold efficiently. Inter-personal Relations was a semester course which dealt pri- marily with life. Students learned to handle different situations, prac- tically and with a level head. Various topics covered were dating, en- gagement, marriage, divorce, and death. Guest speakers were often called upon to further explain them. Clothing taught students not only how to make wearable gar- ments, but how to select practical fabrics. Hand-made clothes enabled students to save money and also to get customized products. Each six weeks different projects had to be completed at school, and grades were based on neatness, fit, tech- nique, and choice of fabric. Three levels of sewing were offered. While Clothing I learned the fundamentals and put together simple items, in- cluding a purse or tie, a top, and then something using a zipper and waistband, such as a skirt or slacks, Clothing II introduced plaids, col- lars, and cuffs. Sewing III, an ad- vanced course in tailoring, was re- introduced because of student re- newed interest. Here a child’s coat was made during the course. While the average student sat in class, hungrily waiting for lunch time, the aroma of Spanish rice or grasshopper pie filled the room, as the Foods students were feasting on their food lab creations. Aside from cooking various types of foods, they also studied nutrition, diet, and preparation methods. Guest speakers introduced cake decorating, butchering, and the pro- cessing of cheese. The next time I try a souffle or make a new blouse, hopefully I won’t make the same mistakes.

Home Economics 95 Cheerleaders , Pep Club Students strive to make spirit more than just a word Cheerleader ... To some people the word brings visions of a cute girl who does nothing but clap and jump and who has no problems other than to decide what team she would like to date that week. Of course, they can’t possibly have an other tal ent than being able to say “rah " at the right time. Contrary to popular belief, this is not all a cheerleader is. She must raise the spirit of the school during a game or just on a normal day. She’s also the one who must get up at 3 o’clock in the morning to decorate houses of athletes with assorted colors of toilet paper. The four freshmen cheer- leaders spent their time leading their classmates in support of ninth grade teams at the fresh- men games. In addition to some- times leading cheers at varsity games, they also spent their time raising money through a garage sale and occasional bake sales. The Junior Varsity cheer- leaders were composed of four sophomore girls. One of their main duties was to help paint signs for different sporting events. They also had bake sales to help raise funds. The Varsity cheerleaders con- sisted of two senior and four ju- nior girls. Each girl spent five days during the summer at the Il- linois State Camp learning the dif- ferent techniques and methods of cheerleading. Besides holding bake sales, they also raised money by running a cheerleading clinic in the summer. They taught a group of young girls from the region some basic cheers and routines. Receiving donations from such clubs as the Booster Club and the Kiwanas Club, they were able to purchase new uniforms. All three groups practiced af- ter school. The girls had been chosen at tryouts in the spring by the student body. They were judged on appearance and co-or- dination. Senior Kathy Allen was elected captain by the other members of the squad. Mrs. Vic- toria Cooper, Junior English teacher, served as sponsor. Cheerleaders were not the only groups raising spirit. They were aided by the Pep Club. One objective of the 41 members was to raise enough money to hire buses for transportation to all the away games. They had a number of bake sales throughout the year to help provide funds. A kazoo band was also formed by the club. Each member brought her kazoo to the games and provided music for the crowds. Freshman Suzie Strater was elected president. Both the Cheerleaders and the Pep Club spent many hours making signs for various games. They were the ones who were re- sponsible for giving moral sup- port to the teams and also for in- voking school spirit. RIGHT: FRESHMEN CHEERLEADERS.

Let ' s go!” Taking their places on the field, the 145 Marching Band members performed faithfully, entertaining the half-time crowds with their lively show of color and graceful precision. " We tried for a really new look this year, " said Mr. David Car- mony, band director. A low marching stride, different music selections, and newly designed red, white and black uniforms were all added to help create a new drum and bugle corps effect. The flag corps consisting of ten girls and the rifle squad with six girls were established to com- plete the Marching Band. The long hours of practice eventually paid off as the band played for the Munster Fourth of July Parade, the Homecoming Parade, the half-time shows, their three yearly concerts, and the Hammond Christmas Parade. Kept extremely busy with the three successive home football games, the band was not able to enter any competition this year. Car washes, bake sales, and a fruit sale in the spring helped pay for the cost of the music and in- struments. The Band and Or- chestra Parents’ Association raised most of the $12,000 needed to pay for the uniforms. As the band played on, pom- poms of color, smiles and spirit were added to the field, the pep- rallies, and basketball games by the Drill Team, Majorettes, Flag Corps, and Rifle Squad. The 40 Drill Team girls were chosen at tryouts in the spring and were judged on their appear- ance and coordination. Several (Continued on pg. 100) LEFT: BRASS SOUNDS.

(Continued from pg. 98) hours were spent going over the routines step-by-step everyday of first semester during fourth hour. Officers were elected and were responsible for organizing the routines and their rehearsals. Striving for perfection, the steps were practiced repeatedly until at last uniformity was mastered and harmony assured. Six of the girls attended camp where different techniques and new ideas were learned. The majorettes also rehearsed during fourth hour and especially worked on their timing. As is the annual custom, the girls twirled fire batons during the Home- coming half-time. Besides per- forming, all the members also sold Mustang sock hats as their main fund raising project. Making its first appearances upon the field, the Flag Corps soon became a known part of the Marching Band. New skills were quickly learned during the sum mer at the Smith-Wallbridge camp and then practiced over and over again during the year. Ruth Morrison was the only Rifle Squad member to attend camp, so she taught the other girls the drills and techniques, al though they all worked together on planning their routines. Without class time during the second semester all of the girls had to meet on their own time to practice for the few remaining pep rallies and basketball games. The last notes begin to fade away and once again the team re- turns to the field. Through the ef fort of many groups, the March ing Band had added a bright mood of color and spirit in back ing the team on to victory.

With his tuba balanced over his head, freshman Doug Katz struggles to return his in- strument to its assigned place. Concert Bands Separate bands combine to give annual concerts With the football season fi- nally over, the Marching Band members returned second se- mester to six separate bands that were designed to meet the differ- ent talents and interests of students. Divided according to their ability, students found their schedules changed and a few va- cant seats where once sat a flute or clarinet player, as three differ- ent groups met at separate times during the day. T he students with limited ex- perience formed the Varsity Band which played during fourth hour. Besides searching for missing sheets of music and waiting for repaired clarinet reeds, the 65 Concert Band members worked on popular and classical music such as “Moon River” and “Close To You”. Consisting of 40 advanced musicians, the Wind Ensemble played more difficult classical and contempory musical selections. Along with directing the other bands, Mr. David Carmony also met with the Stage Band Wednesdays after school for two hours. The 16 selected members concentrated on the Big Band music including different Glenn Miller selections. During the year the Stage Band played at the Bi- centennial auction and for nu- merous other community functions. Also practicing completely on their own time, the Pep Band members met every Thursday. Open to any interested band members, the Pep Band played its support for the teams at pep rallies and at the home basketball games. Directed by Mr. Karl Linden, the Orchestra met during fourth hour. It consisted of only 20 stu- dents, mostly from the Middle School, but its size still had in- creased from previous years. Whatever band the student was in, hours of practice were al- ways necessary. Sometimes it wasn’t so easy trying to find someone to give you a ride home that was also willing to transport your tuba for you or trying to bal- ance your saxophone on the han- dlebars of your bike. Did you ever carry a piccolo around in .your pocket or have your German teacher see your flute and insist on your playing “Silent Night”? The hours of rehearsing fi- nally came to a test as the Band Department presented three an- nual concerts. The Stage Band, C oncert Band and the Wind En- semble played at both the Christ- mas and Winter concerts. Adding to the number of performances, the Concert Band and Wind En- semble continued to practice for a concert that was given in the spring. Whether hoping to become a concert cellist or a drummer for a rock band, the Music Department offered six separate bands that were formed around the stu- dents’ talents and interests.

BELOW: HOLIDAY MELODY. As they strive for per- fect harmony, seniors Pam Gerdt and Louise Wax- man rehearse their Christmas numbers. Melodies, rhythm, notes, harmony fill classes with music “La la la de de dumdedum la la de la— What? Oh, um, yes Ma’am I know this is a history class and not a concert. No Ma ' am, I am not trying to disturb the rest of the class. What’s that, Ma’am? You say you talked to my English and math teachers, and they say I try to disturb their classes too? Ma’am, I can assure you I’m not trying to disturb your class. No, I’m not trying to be smart, Ma’am. You say you want me to go to Mr. Bawden’s office? And don’t come back for three days? No Ma’am, I surely won’t.” Even though singing is not al- lowed in most classes, it is al- lowed in a certain few. Choirs and Glee Clubs provided many stu- dents with a chance to exercise their vocal talents and spend a more relaxing hour in an other- wise hectic day. The Ninth Grade Glee Club was open to all freshmen girls and boys. They met every day sixth hour. Performing songs such as “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and " Silver Bells”, helped the students learn the basics of music. Meeting fifth hour, the Tenth Grade Glee Club was composed of sophomore girls. They contin- ued to learn music skills and also were given the chance to try out for ensembles. Fourth hour was the time for Tenth and Eleventh Grade Choir, alias Gorilla Choir. Composed of sophomore boys, and junior girls and boys, the choir consisted of 89 students. “Snow, Snow” and “Carol of the Bells " were a few of the numbers they worked on. The Concert Choir, unlike the other three, was not open to all students, but rather was open to specially selected seniors. A field trip to Chicago to see the opera “Rigiletto” provided the 56 mem- bers with a chance to see profes- sionals at work. Music director, Mr. Richard Holmberg, supervised all four of the groups. Two concerts, spring and Christmas, were given by the choirs. It gave them the opportu- nity to demonstrate what they had been practicing throughout the school year. “Well, Mr. Bawden, you see I sometimes get confused as to what class I’m in. I mean with choir and then history I forget to stop singing. No, sir, I’m not mak- ing this story up. You’re giving me three whole days to stay at home and study my schedule? I don’t think I ' ll need three days, Sir. Oh, I see, I don’t have a choice in this matter. Well, in that case, I’ll see you in three days.” Ensembles Early practices, community functions make up ensembles I don’t believe these guys got me to try out for this. Ensembles! I’ve been in choir for the past two years, but I never figured I had a good voice. Oh, I’m next. Prepare yourself. Get on pitch. There, I made it through the scale all right. What, now I have to sing a part of this song. Phew . . . it’s all over with. I know this kind of started out as a joke, but I really hope that I make it. I really like to sing. I can ' t believe it! I made it! I made ensembles, one of the four groups: Boy’s Ensemble, Senior Girl’s Ensemble, Girl’s Ensemble, and Mixed Ensemble. Oh, now . . . What!?! We’re going to have 7:30 a.m. practice. Oh . . . this is only two or three times a week, that ' s good, and most of the time we’re practicing during our choir hour. Now Mr. Richard Holmberg, Music Department Director, and Mr. Gene Fort, U.S. history teacher, are telling us about the annual Christmas and Spring Concerts. Good, I don’t have to sing a solo like freshman Pat Wat- son, juniors Mike Koufos, Kathy Miller, and Karen Brumm, and se- niors Louise Waxman, and Greg Glenton are for the Christmas Concert. NISBOVA!? Oh yes, NISBOVA, Northern Indiana State Band, Or- chestra and Vocal Association; we have to compete at this in January, at Gary Lew Wallace High School. After placing there we can move on to the state com- petition which is held at Butler University. Sounds fair to me. Well, here I am. Look at me in a tux! Wow, our first performance in the community is going to be tonight, and I’m really uptight. Look at all those people! Oh . . . the piano is playing the in- troduction and . . . It’s all over, and I made it through the performance without a mistake! Oh yes, I forgot. I sure am glad you r eminded me of the Christmas Concert that’s in three days.

A skill in playing and a knowledge of the rules, in addition to a tennis racquet and a pair of white shorts were a must to be a member of the Tennis team. After organization of the team, prac- tices started two weeks before school and continued into the fall on weekday afternoons. Twenty-three members strengthened their abilities even more by playing in their freetime. All the practice seemed to pay off, helping the eight var- sity members to their fifth Conference win, 6-0, with each participating team member becoming an individual Confer- ence winner. The J.V. Team finished their season 8- 1, and Varsity ended theirs 16-2, with their only losses to Lafayette Jefferson, 3-2, and LaPorte, 3-2.

Looking over the sea- son, Tennis Coach Ed Musselman re- flected, “We had a veteran team from last year and I feel they reached their full po- tential this year with a win to Lafayette and then suffering a loss, which ruined their chances at state.” Linder the leadership of Coach Mus- selman, second-year co-captains Barry Rothstein, senior, and Greg Oslan, junior, and Most Valuable Player, Tim Hester, se- nior, urged the team on through gloomy and cold meets, consoling them on losses and congratulating them on victo- ries. “Qualifying for state was our only major goal of the year and I was very dis- appointed when we didn ' t make it,” re- marked Barry Rothstein after the loss to Lafayette. With the same goal in mind, seven lettermen from the ' 76 season will be returning to play in ' 77. Among those coming back are P.H.D. winner, junior Bill Potasnik and Most Valuable Freshman Reed Oslan.

Morning practices just about put me in my grave, having to trudge through an overgrown obstacle course. After it rained, lookout! Practice for the Cross Country team was impossible! Headed by Coach Kevin Vana, the young Cross Country team captured a sixth place in Conference and a seventh in Sectionals. Age and experience were major setbacks for the Harriers, with only one returning runner from last year’s top five.

Senior captain Carl Serna kept the team optimistic as he placed first in the Highland Invitational and qualified for Re- gional with a tenth place finish. Most Im- proved this season was junior Greg Bo- bin, and Carl Serna received the Most Valuable Teammate Award. Practice proved worthwhile for the runners as the season closed with a 6-5 dual meet record. “Even though this years ' squad was inexperienced, they were the hardest working team I’ve coached,” summed up Coach Vana. “Well I’d better start breaking in a new pair of tennis shoes . . . next season is not as far away as it seems.” ■% i ft t j r t ’ ' i L «.

What will they want to be in next!? " pro- tested the Boys Cross Country team as they were forced to clear the way for the Girls Cross Country team. Ten runners made up the newly formed team, headed by Boys Cross Country Coach Kevin Vana. " The girls have done surprisingly well and have kept up good endurance along with the boys,’’ stated Coach Vana. Weekly prac- tice in Community Park kept the girls in shape. Extra practice for endurance was added as the girls ran along side the boys. Since it was only the first year for the girls in Cross Country, they were inexpe- rienced in competition. Coach Vana felt although the girls ended their season 0-4, they managed to come in a close fourth at the Crown Point Invitational. Team captain senior Sue Taylor was named Most Valuable Runner for the team. " Most of the other members of this year’s team will be back to compete next year, and this should make for brighter prospects next season,” mused Coach Vana, “and based on the enthusiasm and participation of this season, it appears that this sport is here to stay.” ABOVE: GIRLS VARSITY CROSS-COUNTRY.

This just isn’t my day.” Unfortunate circumstances well compensated for the Girls ' Golf team ending with a 9-5 dual meet record. While other students were enjoying the last weeks of summer vacation, the golfers headed out to the Sherwood Country Club for early season practice. August 12 marked the beginning of long hours spent improving good form and controlled swings. The girls began to shake off early season jitters of com- petition after losing their first match to Andrean and Valparaiso. The girls faced anywhere between two and four matches weekly, which cut down the number of workouts per week. The highlight of the team’s season oc- curred in a match between Michigan City Elston and Merrillville, where the girls won finishing in the dark. The final scores were tallied at Merrillville 210, Michigan City Elston 209, and MHS 206. With regu- lar season play over October 5, the golf- ers went on to Sectionals, held at Michi- gan City Municipal Golf Course. The team placed seventh in a field of fourteen teams. The team faced “tough” opposition this year, according to Coach DeEtta Hawkins, the toughest being Lowell and Valparaiso. The team’s four returning players and the seven new members kept the season’s performances accumulative with wins. Each team player improved her individual score by six strokes. Retaining the most first and second places at indi- vidual meets, senior Terry Tavern was the Most Valuable Player. Junior Janice Lisle was named Most Improved as her individ- ual performance was bettered by 18 strokes. “The girls showed great improvement throughout the entire season. They were competitive and tough, which accounts for such a good season. Looking ahead to next year, the outlook of the team seems very promising,” stated Coach Hawkins. ABOVE: GIRL’S GOLF TEAM.

Centering both strategy and play around these three words helped the Spikers to gain a 21-5 overall dual meet record in addition to a trip to both the Sectional and Regional meets. Practice for the Girls Volleyball team began on Aug. 23 in the fieldhouse with two practices daily until the time school commenced. " We had a very successful season. By concentrating on various drills, we accomplished control in per- fecting our spikes, " recalled Varsity Head Coach Miss Carmi Thornton. Striving to play as a team, the girls opened the season with a six game win- ning streak, only then falling to Portage and South Bend Riley in the Portage Tournament. Firing back up again, the Spikers went on to finish the season gaining consecutive wins with the ex- ception of the losses to Crown Point and Portage. At Sectionals, " teamwork " proved to be the key factor to the team ' s success. After defeating Lake Central 15-9, 15-7, the Spikers went on to overtake Highland 1 5-5 and then fell to the T rojans 1 5-6. Re- gaining their composure, the Spikers, in a come-from-behind finish, edged in a 12-10 victory in the final game. Advanc- ing then on to Regionals, the team faced tough competition as they met up with New Prairie. Hopes of securing last year’s regional title collapsed when they were defeated 16-14, 15-3. “The injuries is what really plagued us this year,” commented assistant Varsity Coach Robert Shinkan. But the team’s minor casualties didn’t disable them en- tirely as they claimed both the Sectional Crown and the co-Lake Suburban Con- ference title along with Crown Point. Showing outstanding ability this year, ju- niors Kim Duhon, Toni Gray, and Sue Gescheidler were named to the All-Con- ference team. Toni Gray was also ap- pointed to the second All-Regional team. With only the one returning player from last year’s team, the J-V squad, un- der Coach Robert Shinkan, ended their season with an 18-2 overall dual meet record. " We had an excellent season. Putting to use the word “teamwork " ac- counts for us having such an outstanding record,” concluded Coach Shinkan. LEFT: GIRLS VOLLEYBALL. FRONT ROW: Cathy Reppa.

In spite of the loss, the team managed to secure the second state title, 133 to 130, followed by South Bend Clay with a close second.

The Seahorses also won the Munster Relays for the eighth time and the Merrill- ville Holiday Swim Fest for the fourth time. They took their seventh Sectional title, setting seven meet records and they remained undefeated in Conference. Winning the Red Division of the Mun- ster Relays, the Seahorses received nine first places. Records were set in the 200 yd. Medley Relay, the 800 yd. Freestyle and the 400 yd. Butterfly. Other new records were the 400 yd. Backstroke, the 400 yd. Breaststoke, the 850 yd. Freestyle and the 200 yd. Freestyle. New freshmen and sophomore records were set in the 200 yd.

Mustangs win 15 consecutive games; ranking them 2nd in state for 3Y 2 weeks, but 87-71 loss to East Chicago Roosevelt breaks ’Stangs winning streak For three and one half weeks the bas- ketball team gave Munster the most ex- citing turnabout in Mustang basketball history. Attaining a 15-0 pre-tournament record, winning fifteen straight games, the Mustangs were ranked number two in the state polls. The team was favored for the sectional title until four consecutive losses brought them from second place to an honorable mention in state ranking. A loss to East Chicago Roosevelt, 87- 71, sent the ’Stangs into a tailspin from which they were unable to recover at the end of the season. A loss to Valparaiso, 66-72, and a disappointing defeat to Mor- ton, 60-67, followed the East Chicago Roosevelt game. An upsetting loss to Highland, 68-61, left the Mustangs tied with Highland as Lake Suburban Confer- ence winners. A 16-4 season record was established by the team before the Calu- met Sectional tournament. Head Coach Mike Copper attributed the last four losses to the fact that the team hadn ' t re- covered emotionally from the first “big” loss to East Chicago Roosevelt.

The season ' s end accounted for new team records, by having the best overall Mustang record since the 1968-69 sea- son. Possible All-State candidate, senior guard Kent Hinebaugh, made consid- erable achievements as leading scorer with 17.08 points, for 42% field goals made, including 83 assists. Teaming with Hinebaugh, senior guard John Grune- wald headed team hustle points with 141 and led record-breaking assists, totaling 95. Senior center Ray Comandella was an indispensable member of the team as number two scorer with 13.58. Junior rebound-leader Paul Wolak and junior Mike Hertz, who finished even with an av- erage of 12.5 points per game, were part of the Mustang “fire. " The freshman A and B teams had a “very satisfying season because the boys were not accustomed to winning,” stated Coach Jack Yerkes. The teams came out ahead with an A team 1 1-4 record and B team following with a 9-6 record. Coached by Ed Robertson, the Junior Varsity players ended the season with a 13-7 record. rf O V w f y t vy r _ Li - _ l i fl l Jr ’ 1 1 J 1 1 I 1 w f W-at i i 1 iWSOB 1] J ■E3R HFr ■ i y y i I ui w t J m 9 m BELOW: STRADDLE STRETCH.

After three months of training, the team under the leadership of Mrs. Jamie Guerts and Mrs. Susan Spalding, cap- tured first place at the Lake Suburban Conference losing to Highland by two points. Led by sophomore Melissa Murin for the second year, the optional team took first place at the Sectional meet, held at Merrillville. Senior Jane Fissinger, soph- omore Melissa Murin, and freshmen Nancy Hulett and Joan Taylor went to re- gionals as the optional team, along with freshman Kathy Kotso in the Intermediate level and sophomore Beth Eggebrecht and Suzy Shaw in the beginning level. Advancing to State, Melissa placed 6th on beam and all-around in the op- tional level. She later was named Most Valuable team member, at the end of the season. In the beginning level, soph- omore Suzy Shaw placed 4th on floor ex- ercise. Also, Beth Eggebrecht captured 6th place in vaulting for the beginning level. According to Mrs. Susan Spalding, " Over-all the team had a very fine sea- son, but we’re hoping for a bigger team next year.” Despite five members’ in- juries, the team’s determination secured a winning season, especially in the case of Beth Eggebrecht, who sprained her ankle on the third event at State but went on to complete her fourth event, floor exercise. Gymnastics 147 Varsity players and three senior members overcome inexperience as Junior Varsity improves with a 10-3 record. Exhibiting their skills developed through many drills, the Varsity team played an outstanding game against Por- tage, losing in the first quarter, 19-2, and then coming back with a 45-44 win. Ju- nior Sandy Capps performed success- fully this season making the Indiana State team. Because there was no Conference tournament, no Conference awards were received by the team. At Sectionals, played on home courts, the girls suffered an upsetting loss to Highland 32-36, elim- inating them from further competition. During the season the Girls Basket- ball team took time out to raise money for new warm-ups by selling suckers. With hopes of securing additional funds, the team also organized a basketball mara- thon which was held in June. Because of a few initial problems, the Girls Basketball team was faced with a challenge this year. With only two return- ing varsity players and only three senior members, the team had to overcome in- experience. Injuries throughout the sea- son were also a drawback for the team, causing the loss of team member Shari Duhon, who was injured before the sea- son began. Reflecting on the progress of the season, senior Shelly Koscielniak commented, " it was tough, but Coach Maicher knew our weak spots and con- centrated on helping us overcome them.” Two-hour practices for both Varsity and Junior Varsity squads were held every evening and Saturday mornings. All efforts proved to be worthy as the Var- sity team, coached by Mr. Robert Mai- cher, ended the season with a 9-6 record. Headed by a new assistant coach, Miss Carmi Thorton, the Junior Varsity team finished with a 10-3 final record. 1 m w k9 [ » ft IT ' i AH « 7 Ms H ME Aifli mt t v yPl 4 Me Isil mi V U AM r vF Jl H PQ H mk i I n N , AJ tXj W IWa. |fj H Hi JBl JHj V VI ABOVE: GIRLS BASKETBALL: FRONT ROW: Manager MaryLou Barron, Barb Pontius, Pam Tomae, Madeline Gre- gor, Janet Nottoli.

Coach Bob Maicher gives advice to the varsity players in the Munster-Morton game Placing 10 individuals at Lake Suburban Conference tournament, wrestlers capture 1st place title During wrestling season the team builds endurance together, practices to- gether, diets together, and even takes team wins and losses together. But unlike other sports, each wrestler goes out on the mat and competes alone, defeated or victorious alone. Fans, fellow teammates, and coaches give support, but the wres- tler is one-to-one against his opponent. This is what makes wrestling unique from other sports. The Grapplers were rewarded with a 7- 1 record, losing only to Crown Point 20- 31. The Junior Varsity ended the season with a 7-1 dual meet record. Headed by coach Alex Bochnowski, the Varsity team took over the Lake Suburban Confer- ence, winning by 49 points, the largest margin in Mustang wrestling history.

At Crown Point the trackmen swept the Bulldogs 72-57. Individual firsts went to Serna in the two mile individual, to Mott in the 100 low hurdles, and to Rhind in the discus throw. " Overall, the season wasn’t that good. We had a lack of involvement which really made it tough when we went up against schools with 80 team mem- bers,” added Bob Carroll. Throughout the entire season, the trackmen displayed determination and versatility. Team members found them- selves participating in two or more events per meet, highlighted by the all-around performance of Concialdi.

But right now all it is doing is giv- ing me a tremendous headache. Oh well, tomorrow is the big meet which means we won’t be working out as hard as usual to help save our strength. What’s that the coach is saying? To- morrow’s meet is postponed until next week, and we can run an extra ten laps to keep us in shape? Terrific, and just when I only had a quarter lap to go.” After school practices were just one of the factors involved with being a mem- ber of the Girl’s Track team. Besides the countless hours spent training, the girls also had the chance to compete in vari- ous meets throughout the season. Mr. Dennis Spangler, Wilbur Wright Middle School teacher, coached the members and Mr. Bob Shinkan, geometry teacher, served as his assistant. Striving to improve from the previous year, the team broke numerous records and fin- ished with a 13-2 winning season. The 880 yard relay team, consisting of senior Annette Masolak, junior Lydia Megremis, and freshmen Pam Derolf and Lisa Scott, managed to set a new record nine times! Although unable to beat rivals Crown Point and Highland in conference play, the team defeated them in the Calumet sectionals in which they took second. Nine girls qualified for regionals in five separate events. Qualifying in the mile were junior Katie Flynn and freshman Laura Brauer. The relay team also quali- fied along with Masolak in the 100 yard dash. Advancing to regionals in the high jump competition were junior Sara Mun- tiu and freshman Pam Seefurth. Toni Gray, junior, qualified in the softball throw. “The girls this year have given a bet- ter example of what team effort can do, than any other team I’ve seen,” com- mented Coach Shinkan. “Throughout the season the girls worked with dedication to make the team a winning one.” “Finally, I’m finished running. I can not wait to get home and relax. Oh no, the coach is asking if a few of us will stay after to get in some extra practice. Oh well, at least I ' ll be in good shape for the meet next week.” BELOW: GIRLS TENNIS. FRONT ROW: Dinah Horath. Darci Gray .

I must remem- ber all of the fundamentals that I learned in tennis lessons. First, keep your eye on the ball, position your body in line with the ball, racket back, ready swing and fol- low through with your racket. Beautiful! Now that’s the way to play tennis! " With precision timing, the many steps and methods to a victory passed through the minds of the 18 members of the Girls Tennis Team as they concentrated on their playing whether it was a final con- ference match or just a practice game. Working on skills everyday after school and on Saturdays for three months, the hours of practice seemed to pay off as the team established a 1 4-0 to- tal dual meet record and a 5-0 Confer- ence meet record which secured the Conference title for the girls. In the Conference tournament, the girls placed six All-Conference cham- pions in four of the five categories. Se- nior Sue Taylor won as the number one singles player and Jeanine Stevens, se- nior, as the number two singles player. The doubles teams of freshman Judy Brauer and senior Cathy Gaffigan and of junior Carrie Melind and senior Karen Hertz placed first and second respec- tively in their matches. A total of 83 individual wins and only four losses finished the season for the varsity team, and the new junior varsity team concluded its year without a single loss. Expanding the team to include the first extensive junior varsity team, Coach Brenda Coffield hoped to be able to bet- ter serve the needs of all of the girls who had really shown an interest in tennis. Remaining undefeated proved the strength of the team to be even greater than the girls had hoped for at the begin- ning of the season. Highlighting their matches with wins against Highland and Valparaiso (6-1, 7-0), the team went on to be seeded highly in both Conference and Sectional games. The girls won the Sectional com- petition. Senior Susan Taylor placed a first in singles, along with junior Dinah Horath who placed a third. Doubles teams consisting of senior Jeanine Ste- vens, junior Carrie Melind, and freshmen Judy Brauer, and Cathy Gaffigan went on to compete in Regionals in Valparaiso. FAR LEFT: HIGH SERVE.

In con- sidering their many wins, Coach Ed Mus- selman felt that, “for the most part, the play of our sophomores contributed to our success.” (Continued on pg. 165) BELOW: GOLF TEAM.

After ten matches, the team was in a tie for first in the Lake Suburban Con- ference race; however, a loss to Crown Point set them back to second place. This put them farther away from their season goal which was, according to Coach Musselman, “to win Conference and place first at the Sectionals.

Each member paid $75 to be on the team and had to purchase his own equipment. The $75 fee paid for ice time and the $1300 North- ern Indiana High School Hockey League (NIHSHL) participation fee. Seniors Bob Tompulis, Bob Siegel, and sophomore Phil Maroc were tri-cap- tains, chosen to help Coach Tim Ellison by keeping records and acting as go-be- tweens for the team and Coach Ellison. Awards given were Most Valuable, senior Jeff Adams; Most Improved, junior Eric Compton, junior and Leading Scorer, se- nior Steve Spurlock. Explaining the team’s low record, Coach Ellison said, " our morale was very low from the start, due to lack of support from the school and student body.” The sound of the buzzer signaled the end of the game. Who won? With a 5-11 season record, it can be said that this was not the Hockey Team ' s best year. The loss of ten players of the ' 75- ' 76 team and lack of team enthusiasm seemed to greatly hamper the remaining 18 team members. The Stickmen started out the season by beating T.F. South, 5-2 and 4-3; Glen Park, 5-1; Bishop Noll, 6-1; and Hobart, 8- 5. However, according to senior team captain Bob Tompulis, " After a few wins, we were really up for the Highland game. When we lost the game, we also lost our confidence.” Earning another win, three members of the team played in the Western Divi- sion of the All-Star game. The score was 4-3, aided by a goal from senior Steve Spurlock. Also playing in the game were senior Jeff Adams and junior Bob Siegel, goalies. ABOVE: HOCKEY TEAM. Front Flow : Bob Siegel. Mark Chael.

Hockey 1 71 Holding the Lake t Suburban Conference title as co-champs with Highland , for the past two years, Stickmen 9? were forced into second place by losses to Calumet, Lowell, Crown Point and Griffith It takes more than luck to produce a winning team, and Coach Mike Niksic’s Stickmen had what it takes. Before the season started, a weak pitching staff and a strong hitting attack was predicted. Pitching came on strong, as shown by three shutout games against Highland, Crown Point, and Lake Central. Demonstrating inconsistent hitting throughout the season, the players broke the double digit barrier four times during the season, then were shutout four times. Senior pitchers John Grunewald and Jim Pawlowicz, who both sported close to a 1.5 earned run average, were aided by senior catcher Gary Downing. Offense and defense by senior first baseman Dan Banas, senior centerfielder Greg Beno, and versatile junior shortstop Steve Ur- banski, also added to the success of a well-balanced team. After two years of holding the Lake Suburban Conference title (LSC), losses to Calumet, Lowell, Crown Point, and champion Griffith, forced the Stickmen to take second place.

Hard work paid off for seniors Gary Downing and Dan Banas, who were Most Valuable Players. Senior Greg Beno re- ceived the Golden Glove Award, and ju- nior Steve Urbanski was given the Golden Bat Award. Honored with the Nick Katsoulis P.H.D. award was senior Jim Pawlowicz. Captain Greg Beno felt that " this year had one of the best teams because of the 20 victory season. " Coached by Mr. Dan Kernaghan, eco- nomics teacher, the J.V. squad had a 13- 3 record.

" No I must be seeing things, " she mumbled softly while getting dressed half asleep. “These pants are too tight! Maybe I put them on backwards. I cannot be gaining weight! Mom must have shrunk them when she put them in the dryer. But these pants never shrink!” Around mid-winter you begin to feel that excess flab around your waist. The familiar say- ing " I’m getting out of shape” begins to cross your mind. The winter flab has set in. Sitting around watching the " boob tube” afternoons with a mouthful of do- ritos is not going to get you back in shape. Why not join the crowd and give yourself the old one-two? After all missing the " Three Stooges”, or “Charlie’s Angels” only twice a week won’t be so bad. Whether for health reasons, preparation for an upcoming athletic season, pure enjoyment, or just plain boredom; students are getting involved in " body building " activities. After school and evenings the fieldhouse is alive with weightlifters and groups of jog- gers sweating it off. Weekly family swims have become popular for exercise as well as enjoyment. Outside school grounds Health Clubs have been widely used, especially for athletes. Omni 41 pro- vides skating, tennis, and gymnastics, plus some health equipment. The girls tennis team made use of Omni to prepare themselves for their spring season. Even the local YMCA provides an outlet to lose those extra pounds with the xercise classes that they offer. For those who chose to hibernate dur- ing the winter months, they need not have ventured out to shape up. Homes provided an adequate gym. Exercising ♦o " Songs in the Key of Life, " or along with Lila on the show " Yoga and You, " were just a few ways to liven up exercising programs. “Well I’d better face it, I have gained weight this winter.

" Whether a beginner or advanced in the operation of a Citizen’s Band radio (CB), CB Club was open to all students in the school. The eight members un- der the sponsorship of Mr. Steve Tomasula were taught a new language along with the electronic skills that go with operating the twenty three chan- nel radio. Channel nineteen, otherwise known as the trucker’s channel, was used to find out traffic and road condi- tions along almost all highways. If ever in trouble or in a state of an emer- gency, channel nine was to be used. CB’s are found in both houses and cars, and many channels are jammed with endless breakers. The CBer learned that his radio came in handy in times of emergency, while just getting in touch with a friend, or while getting a time check so that he could be home on time. However, these were not the only pastimes. Besides the basic stamp and coin collections, many students par- ticipated in other active and worth- while hobbies. 9:30 a m. mass at St. Thomas More would not have been the same without juniors Kathy Collins, Sue Branco, and Cathy Etling, who made up “Guitar Mass " . In their spare time students kept in shape by jogging, by working out in the Fieldhouse, or by joining health clubs. Dancing, from ballet to modern jazz, was popular with many other stu- dents either wanting to work on be- coming graceful or coordinated. Some students used their athletic skill to teach sports such as football, gymnas- tics, and tennis. “Hey, Joker, whatcha doing playing around with this thing if you don’t know what you’re doing!?!” “I’m bored now that football sea- son is over. I don’t have anything to do!” “Well listen. Why don’t you put your talent to use and help teach little kids how to play. That’s what I do, and I get paid for doing it.” “That’s a great idea!” I’ll check into that right away! Thanks a lot good buddy. Oh, yea . . . 10-4.” 1 78 Hobbies LEFT: TUNE UP.

Giant green flippers disappear into the pool and only a dark form can be seen gliding along the bottom. Bubbles rise to the surface, and suddenly a mas- ked face appears from the water. " The Scuba Club meeting will now be called to order! " After many hours of planning and discussing, the foundations of a new Scuba Club were under way. Details were carefully organ- ized by Mr. Brian Young and a few interested students. Learning the techniques and basic funda- mentals of diving and snorkeling soon became their goal. Financial obstacles were the club’s biggest problem as the cost of lessons at either OMNI or the Hammond YMCA ranged from $60.00 to $75.00. Still, much enthusiasm supported them as the members met after school for lectures and discussions on top- ics like scuba safety, marine bi- ology, and new innovations in the line of scuba equipment. Other students enjoyed com- peting against each other with the skills they had already learned. The moment is tense for Bob Bowler as he concentrates on the last standing pin. He picks up his ever beautiful blue bowling ball, gets into position, aims, and then that moment of truth— he closes his eyes and carefully releases the ball. The 52 Bowling Club mem- bers met every Monday at the Munster Lanes Bowling Alley to compete in their own four mem- ber teams. Paying $2.25 each week towards three games and the trophies, the members tested their talent as they counted the pins crashing to the floor. With help from the club’s offi- cers, Mr. Jeffrey Graves, sponsor, calculated the average, handi- cap, total pins of the members and the standings of all of the 13 teams. Trophies were presented in the spring to members with the first and second highest aver- ages, high game, high series, and to the first, second and the third place teams. Through group effort and team spirit students were able to extend past the boundaries of the school to further their interests and their hobbies. LEFT: ESSENTIAL INSTRUCTION.

I think it’s really great to be able to ski. It’s too bad I can’t. Oh well, I can still swim. But then again, af- ter seeing “Jaws”, I think I’d bet- ter not. Well, there is always hik- ing, except I really do like the “hitch” kind better. I could al- ways go camping, except I’d hate to be eaten by a bear; my mother would get quite upset. Come to think of it, I’m not really a very “outdoorsy " person. I mean, I am allergic to snow and dirt, and I have this nasty habit of catching poison ivy all the time. Maybe I should just go back in the house and catch the end of " Gilligan ' s Island " . I can always try this na- ture thing again next year.” Although some people do not enjoy the outdoors, many stu- dents spent their free time hiking, skiing, swimming, camping or skating. Such outdoor sports gave them the chance to get away from the T.V. and radio to spend a few hours enjoying nature. Some students did this by joining the Outdoors Club. Com- posed of 49 members, the club was sponsored by Mr. Arthur Haverstock, Biology teacher. They had a bike hike in the fall and a “freeze out” in the winter. The “freeze out” consisted of each of the members spending a night in a sleeping bag and tent— in the snow. The club raised money by cleaning up the foot- ball field. A few ski trips were also taken. Fresh air and healthy exercise are a few benefits of an outdoor life. Other students, not in the club, could also go skating and skiing at the local parks. While some students spent their time riding a bicycle, others were un- der water with their scuba gear. Almost every student, in his own way, took advantage of what na- ture had to offer. “I am really sick of " Gilligan’s Island”, but I wonder what would happen to me if I ever was stranded on an island. I mean, with what I know about nature, I ' d be dead in an hour. Maybe I will go camping with the guys next weekend. It never hurts to be prepared.’’ FAR LEFT: OUTDOORS CLUB.

I just got up, and I’m not ready to start doing exercises. Every day we have to do this? Oh no! I’m going to die before this class is over!” Four to six laps around the gym each day before class was not a routine to which every freshman or sophomore guy became accus- tomed. During first semester basket- ball, volleyball or wrestling followed each day’s workouts. Drills such as passing, dribbling, and shooting were designed to build up leg and arm muscles. Achievement tests were given during each unit to grade the stu- dents’ basic skills. In the boys’ phys- ical education classes various col- ors signified different levels of ability. Physical proficiency was marked by white, red, blue or gold gym shorts. Gymnastics, basketball, speed- away: girls in gym had a variety of activities in which they participated. Enjoyment as well as toned muscles resulted from the day’s activities. Through performance in free exer- cise and balance beam routines during the fall term, coordination was improved. Those who were usually slow when getting dressed learned to be quick in making themselves presentable. The ring of the bell brought shrieks from inside the girl’s locker room by those who weren’t ready yet. Swimming forced many to over- come their fear of water. Learning the various strokes and survival techniques took a great deal of pa- tience, skill and endurance. “Thank goodness class is over. My body’s aching all over. Oh well, at least we don’t have to run tomor- row ... we have to . . . swim. Swim? I can’t get into a pool of ice cold wa- ter so early in the day!” ABOVE: ONE, TWO, THREE.

Physical Education 185 Letterpeople Athletes get letters while participating in varsity sports RIGHT: STAND TALL. Performing cheers with the varsity cheerleaders is just one way Lettermen earn points toward their jackets. BELOW: EYES ON THE BALL. With only minutes left until halftime, seniors Mark Frastack and Jim Wilkin- son follow the action before they go to work holding the ropes. To most people, speaking of points and hours spent in a cer- tain area would suggest a certain class and the struggling for grades, but to athletes, it would mean lettering in a certain sport and becoming a member of either the Lettermen or Letterwomen Club. Paying $1 dues and earning enough points by being in a var- sity sport were the requirements for membership in the Let- terwomen Club. The money was used to help set up the Athletic Award Banquet, held in the spring, for the girls under the sponsorship of Miss Brenda Cof- field, physical education teacher. Trophies and awards were presented to the most valuable girl on each team and other dis- tinguished members. With rules and regulations being much like its female counterparts, the Lettermen Club, under the sponsorship of Mr. Jack King, health and safety teacher, was quite often seen busy ushering at football and basketball games, sweeping the floor for the basketball players during half-time, and selling pro- grams. Profits from selling pro- grams and their $1.00 dues helped pay for their letters, which represented hard work and pres- tige as a member of the club. FAR RIGHT: LETTERMEN. FRONT ROW: Dennis Flynn.

You must be the best runner on the entire track team. Bein g able to watch you just whiz around the fieldhouse gives me a real thrill. Good luck at tomor- row’s meet. GO! GO! GO! GO! Love, Your GTO Secret Admirer. Sending secret admirer notes were only one of the many jobs of the Girls’ Timing Organization in backing the teams with spirit and in helping to run the meets. The Swimming GTO was on hand at both the girls’ and boys’ swim meets to help time and record the winning and the losing times. The girls were busy even before the meets with bake sales, decorating lockers, filling the team members ' trees with various colors of toilet paper and con- vincing the boys of their love through secret admirer notes. While stampedes of boys ran around the fieldhouse, the Track GTO had various duties including GTO 189 holding the finishing line, running the stop watches, giving out rib- bons and keeping the statistics. Moral support and spirit were also added by the girls as they never spared their voices in cheering for the team. Profits from bake sales were spent for crepe paper and balloons that adorned many lockers during the track season. Various signs filled the halls for the wrestling season as the Wrestling GTO tried to raise spirit for the team. Keeping score and watching the clock were some of the main responsibilities of the girls. When time was up, the girls threw in the towel to signal the end of the match, sometimes hit- ting the referee just to make sure they got his attention. The three GTOs were all very important to both the teams and to the team members as they helped run the meets and gave extra confidence and spirit to the boys. P.S. Tom, be sure to win to- morrow.

And now here is the secret behind what makes this school stand out from all of the rest. It’s not the color of the walls or the interior decorating but you the people, the cast of 1740 stu- dents, 75 faculty members, and three administrators, who excel by continually producing all-star performances. We’ve got one of the only schools in the area with a per- fect one-to-one ratio of 870 girls and 870 boys. |f you’re the type who loves an audience, then the possi- bilities for you are unlimited. Try out for cheerleading, voice your opinion in Speech and Debate, or simply be a class clown and entertain fellow classmates. ♦If you’re the grumbly, com- plaining type who has gripes to get off his chest, attend the rap sessions set up for students to meet and exchange ideas with the administration. Even the quiet, shy types can easily fit into the spirit of a pep rally, especially when it’s for a game to be played against your archrival Highland. lf you’re clutsy and acci- dent prone— you won’t feel alone as the halls abound with people on crutches. lf you don’t know which way to go, you can always seek the guidance of a teacher, sec- retary, administrator, or even friends. If you ' re the shy, comical, outgoing, scholarly, athletic, boisterous type, or just the run- of the mill average Joe, then you’ll fit in this school because WE’VE GOT A LOT! Socializing 191 r p«»c u ALl i WA Y n A TROL As stu dents move through the halls between classes. Mr. James Bawden. Assistant Principal, oversees the rush. " ' I " ; ™ 3 OFFICIAl - i Before leafing through important papers, Dr. Wallace Un- derwood. Superintendent, takes a moment to review the day ' s schedule. 192 Administration starts series of rap sessions to achieve greater communication among faculty, parents, student body “We want driving and parking privileges!” ‘‘How about a smoking lounge for seniors?!” " When can we start having an open cam- pus lunch hour policy?” " We demand our rights as students!” When voters feel their rights are being vio- lated, they go to the government. In turn, when students feel they’re not being treated fairly, they approach the administration. The administration strove for an efficiently run school by negotiating teachers ' contracts and listening to students. Greater communica- tion was achieved through a series of rap ses- sions set up by Dr. Karl Hertz, principal, for students and parents. The newly-established Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) also provided for better understanding among students, parents, and the school. BELOW: SIDELINES SPECTATORS.

" Although sometimes hav- ing a teacher for a sponsor seems burdensome, the situ- ation usually ends with a group of students, grateful to their sponsor. These teachers de- vote time to provide students with a chance to participate in outside activities. Head Speech coach, Mrs. Helen Engstrom, sponsors Speech and Debate Club in or- der to teach students things she isn’t able to in the classroom.

" It” is a relaxing tech- nique which most teachers could use after a busy day of teaching. It ' s called Transcen- dental Meditation. This is just one of the many activities in which teachers are involved in. Faculty members usually get involved by sponsoring activities, joining clubs, or taking up hobbies. Some of these leisure activities in- clude cartooning, sewing, plant raising, read- ing, and cooking. Other teachers are involved in more exotic hobbies, such as skiing, moun- tain climbing, backpacking, and meditating. Remembering past experiences also keeps teachers young in spirit. One particular teacher remembered the experience of skiing down a hill at night on a shower curtain. Oth- ers reminisced the nights at McDonalds after the game. Teachers really can be informative and in- teresting. The next time you’re sitting in the dim-lit lecture hall and begin to draw on the desk out of boredom, remember: Teachers are more than tape recorders or computers, they share many experiences and interests with you. MEMORIES. As Mr. Ed Burkhardt, sociology teacher, bends over to set some books on the floor, he recalls being in the same position and splitting his pants on his first day as a teacher.

It ' s Friday night and you’re sitting by the phone again. You think to your- self, " Oh please make Jim call me tonight and ask me out! I don’t even care if that short guy Fred with the horn-rimmed glasses calls me! I’m tired of sitting at home all the time! What can I do to give these guys the hint?” You see her in your Chemistry class everyday and you wonder if she even notices if you’re alive. You want your best friend to confront her and find out if maybe she would ever like to go out with you, but you realize that that would be a dumb idea. You are a junior now and you should ask her out yourself. But how? ♦Why not casually walk up to her and say, “Hey listen, if you ' re going to the football game, I’d be happy to take you— if you need a ride.” ♦You see him at a basketball game and immediately it’s love-at-first-sight. You want to get to know him so you walk up to him and say, " You know, you look a lot like Elmer Lucas.” When he says, “Who is Elmer Lucas? " your first step is accomplished; he is talking to you. ♦You send your target a “SEE YOU SOON HOPEFULLY " card and put your phone number inside of it, along with your address. How about approaching her and saying, " I’d really like to get to know you better. Why don’t you come by sometime and visit me? I’m usually al- ways home.” ♦How about trying out the old line, “I just found out that I don’t have to work on Friday night. I hear that there is a really good movie playing at Ridge Plaza. Do you think you might want to go? " ♦You ask her if maybe she could help you in that Home Economics course that you signed up for because you just can’t get the hang of cooking. ♦Approach her with the line, “I have an extra ticket to see Boston in concert this Friday night. You wouldn’t happen to know anyone who would want to go?” ♦‘‘What size shoe do you wear? Seven— o.k. I’ll pick you up around then.” If all else fails and you still can’t manage to hook a date, why not drag the old butterfly net out of the closet and catch your target that way? ABOVE: THE QUIET APPROACH. Finding time between class, senior Dave Bom bar takes ad- vantage of the empty Commons to ask soph- omore Kim Carbonare to that night ' s basketball game. Dad says ten . . . clock says one tick tock tick . . .trouble ahead Have you ever got caught sneaking in late by your parents? I have, at least a hundred times! After I had another close call last night I decided it was time to do something about it, instead of spending the rest of my high school years grounded! I called all my friends and asked them what little " tricks " they used to accomplish this without being caught in the act. It seems time that a list be published! Before you leave, make sure the door you want to use is unlocked. If your parents lock it behind you so they can hear your late arrival, have a spare key with you. Become familiar with all the noises of your house. Know where the floor creaks and the stairs groan. You’ve got to avoid those little sounds be- cause they sound a lot louder when the whole house is quiet! Take your time and move around more slowly. If you rush you’ll be ner- vous and probably bang into the hall lamp or desk. This will bring your par- ents running for sure! Take off your shoes outside or at least before you start moving around. Even if you have tennis or soft-soled shoes, stocking feet are much quieter! Don’t hang up your coat or other clothes once you get inside. Most closet doors are too noisy and they can bang shut easily! Drawers ma ke a lot of noise too! Lay out your pajamas and whatever else you might need before you go. Just in case all your efforts don’t work and they’re waiting up for you— have a good story ready! Frustration, confusion pile up— “PANIC” Panic sets in as second semester rolls around and your junior English teacher hits you with the threat of the term paper. How does one go about writing such a monstrous paper? The place to start is at the library. But who wants to spend the time re- ABOVE: INDIVIDUAL LEARNING. Beginning re- search on his term paper, junior Greg Oslan looks up useful sources in the card catalog. searching, writing out note cards, pre- paring outlines, thinking up some type of thesis statement, and putting it all together, when there has got to be an easier way? Why not try going over to cousin Tom’s house to borrow his college bi- ology thesis paper on the “Metabio- logical Aspects of Determining the Sig- nificance of Bacteria in Bread Mold”? No, maybe that is a little bit over what the junior English teachers expect. Even if he did get an A on the paper, they would never believe that you wrote it. Remember that ad you saw in the back of Rolling Stone? Professionally written term papers for sale on a vari- ety of topics. What a great idea! If you send in now, maybe you will get some- thing in the mail before your term pa- per is due. Before you write into this company you should be informed of one thing. These term papers are just outlines of good ways to write a paper. You still have to put the paper together yourself. That College Comp book of your sister’s had a complete ten page typed and footnoted paper in it. Wow, that would be great! You wouldn’t have to do anything except re-type it. But what if your English teacher used the same college Comp book? What about your brother’s term pa- per? He just graduated last year and he did very well on this term paper. In fact, with the corrections that his teacher wrote in, it would be a cinch to get an A on the paper. No, that idea is not very good either. The English De- partment keeps all of the old term pa- pers on file to make sure that no two term papers are the same. Well, if all else fails, you can resort to doing the paper yourself. Anyway, if you are planning on attending college, the experience would really be benefi- cial to you in t he long run. Taking the paper one step at a time, and with the help of your teacher, the actual writing of the paper won’t be so hard. Dodge ’em, poke ’em— time is running out Ready . . . Hup one, Hup two . . . Prepare yourself to try to plow your way to the north building. With all de- fensive strategies planned, you walk out of the lunchroom and your first plan of attack begins. Remem- ber— time is of the essence. Squeezing your way out of the lunchroom, you use the old hug-the- lockers-all-the- way-down-the- hall technique. You made it that far. Now comes the pool hall. Here you must apply the dodge-in-and-out-of- the-poky-walkers strategy. You make it to your first down, with only 40 yards to go until you’ll be at your Tri- gonometry class. Now you enter the fieldhouse, which is less congested. Oh, this will be easy! You ' re rushing through and all of a sudden your face is stopped by what appears to be a net. What a stupid place to set up a track. This minor technicality sets you back a few yards, but before you know it, you are back on the field and ready to go. Less than 30 yards and you’ll reach your destination. Bad luck sets in again as you trip between your block- ers on the wet floor between the build- ings, fumbling your books and delaying the procedure by three minutes. Now time is running short be- cause you have only one more minute to complete the play. Fourth down with only ten yards to go. You see a clear- ing and decide to dive through the hole. With only five yards to go you hear the warning bell sound. Increas- ing speed, you sprint through the final yards and stumble into class just as the final bell sounds. You wait for the official’s decision. With a nod you know you made it just in the nick of time. TOUCHDOWN!!! ABOVE: CONGESTED TRAFFIC. After the bell, students rush through the crowded halls to get more books and reach their next class on time. How to do anything better 199 JEFF M. ADAMS: Hockey 4: Football 1,2.

ED ALT DAVE ANDERSON Echoes in an empty hall bring back memories of 446 seniors, as Locker 223 tells of past year The brush of the janitor’s broom echo intensified in the emptiness of the hall, as he turned the corner down the adjacent corridor and moved far- ther away. Absolute stillness overtook the lonely area with closed doors and empty lockers. So empty it seemed to locker num- ber 223. A whole summer of non-use was ahead. For a second the halls ap- peared filled with the faces of seniors. Sherrill’s face, and all her friends gath- ering around, and the flow of memo- ries continued. All the gossip Sherrill Nose shared with her friends came back to 223. What a special year it was! All the Friday night games and exciting Saturday dates seemed to be flowing from Sherrill’s mouth, as her presence was imagined. “Did you hear about John?” He was going with Kathy but they just broke up. Now she is going out with Scott.” The events of the year and the ex- citement streamed through the halls as the seniors’ spirit returned. The offi- cers, 223 remembered, were leading the way— Tom Krajewski as President, Dave Ladd as Vice-president, Carol Bartok as Secretary and Drew Kanyer as Treasurer. Homecoming, the biggest event of the year, began by planning the senior float. All those evening of work paid off as “Let’em Rust in Peace” won first. All other elements of that special senior year seemed to materialize in the mind of locker 223, as it recalled the days Sherrill had spread the news about them: the purchasing of senior visors, fitting caps and gowns, and go- ing on the senior trip to San Diego. For the spring carnival, Sherrill’s class planned to have a booth. Gradu- ation was approaching, along with the year’s end. That meant finals and lots of study- ing. Spring was also the time for Prom. That was Sherrill’s big event! What a fuss she made day after day, about her dress and flowers. She must have had a nice time. The janitor walked by 223, and the sound of the footsteps echoing in the empty corridors brought the locker back to reality.

LINDA BUCHANAN RICK BUCHER SCOTT BURKE 202 Seniors Is it still a custom in Japan to sit on the floor while eating dinner? Do stu- dents in France really have more so- cial freedom than students in America? Exchange students sponsored by the American Field Service and Rotary Club helped students answer some of these questions. “In Japan we eat sitting on the floor,” Yuko Hirata, AFS exchange stu- dent said, " but I fear Americans think of the Japanese as in old customs. We have modern cities and schools, but traditions do play an important role in our life. In Japan I do 3 to 4 hours of homework a day and the evening is spent reading books or watching TV as a family. " Manuelle Boutille, an 18 year old student from France commented, “Life is very different here. School is harder in France. The dating system also dif- fers; we don’t date until we are at least 18.” “Soccer has taken on new mean- ing since I have played in America,” Joao ledo, Rotary student from South America told students at the Fall Sports Banquet. “At home in Brazil, I just played for fun; now I ' d like to com- pete professionally. In Brazil I attend school from January to August, since our seasons are different.” Through such programs the AFS and Rotary were able to reach their goal: to bring continents of the world together, " turning places into people.

KATHLEEN ANN DALTON DUANE DAVES of upperclassmen’s downfall After three months of en- joying the sun, it was time to go back to school. However, this time things would be dif- ferent. You were a senior and that meant only two more se- mesters, 36 weeks, or 180 days until graduation. So, you de- cided to set high goals: study hard, pass all tests, and refrain from ditching. Having talked with students from the Class of ' 76, you were looking forward to this year, but you never realized that se- nior year could be so much fun. Activities, such as the “se- nior” football game, and senior trip to San Diego, involved you. Only three more courses were required for your diploma. You had more free time as early re- leases enabled you to earn some spending money, en- gage in any hobbies, or just re- lax at home. With your grades showing improvement and col- lege applications in the mail, everything seemed to be going just great. Then second semester be- gan. After three unexpected days off, it was back to the books. All of a sudden, you be- gan to feel funny. It was the middle of goverment lecture and you were overcome by a feeling of claustrophobia, com- pounded by an accute case of S.D. (Senior Digression). It seemed like a bomb had just hit with everything crumbling down in front of your eyes. Sit- ting still for more than 20 minutes or completing any homework assignments was impossible. This philosophy worked for a while. Then the weather got warmer and new symptoms be- gan to develop. There were trips to the beach, senior ban- quet, and graduation arrived without any further com- plications. 204 Seniors TOM DEBARGE RENEE DESROISERS ROEL DIZON MALLORY ELIZABETH DONNERSBERGER: Drill Team 2-4 (Sec. 3, Pres. 4); GTO; Intramurals 4; Prom Comm. 3.

GUSTAV EDWARD GALANTE: Swimming 1-4; Letterman 3,4; Intramurals 1-4; NHS 4 Seniors depend on live concerts for excitement to relieve strain from their usual daily schedules. No this isn’t some type of a wild trip. You are at your first concert and are sitting amid all of the flying frisbees, toilet pa- per streamers, and green glow sticks. All of a sudden the lights dim and screams of “ALL RIGHT” can be heard throughout the auditorium. The emcee comes out on stage and announces “Ladies and gentlemen, live from Los Angeles, California, The Eagles and Joe Walsh.” This past year the Chicago area has provided many con- certs for interested attenders. The Chicago Stadium was the sight for groups such as The Doobie Brothers, Eagles and Joe Walsh, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Black Sabbath, Boston, and The Beach Boys. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gary Wright, Yes, and Peter Frampton made their debut at the Hawthorn Park, one of the largest outdoor con- certs of ’76. Others included Kansas, Santana, and Leon and Mary Russell at the Ara- gon Ballroom. Another out- door concert at White Sox Park was host for Aerosmith and Jeff Beck. E.L.O. and Hall and Oates played at the Am- phitheater. Rush and Ted Nu- gent played at the Civic Center. Why do people go to con- certs? Maybe to break the monotony of their daily sched- ules, or maybe they like the ex- citement of a live concert. Par- ents probably complain that it ' s a waste of time and money. “You don’t have to see them because you already have all their albums. " But did your parent’s parents ever try to stop them from going to a live concert to see Bill Haley and the Comets or Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids? Probably not. So what’s the big deal? The price of the tickets? They could range anywhere from $6.50 to $100, maybe more, maybe less, anyway, go- ing to see the concert live sure beats watching it on The Mid- night Special or Don Kirsh- ner’s Rock Concert. Besides, there is no excitement or feel- ing of participation. You surely can’t start jumping up and down on your bed while yelling or screaming. Your mother will probably think you were pos- sessed or something like that. Suddenly the lights go on. People are still on their feet yelling “ENCORE, ENCORE!” Others are making their way toward the door, and many just sit and wait until most of the people leave. Another big con- cert has flown by. Satisfied, you begin making plans for the next concert. MICHAEL MARTIN GASKEY: Baseball 1-4; Intramurals; Band 1,2; DE 3.

BOB JARMAN 208 Seniors Determined never to be sur- passed by any other class, the “mighty” seniors began early in the year with pep and a great spirit and maintained that same spirit through- out the following months. Although attendance wasn ' t al- ways complete at pep rallies, since they were held at the end of the school day, loudness and enthusi- asm were at their height. At the pep rally for the big Highland football game, hundreds of multi-colored toilet paper rolls could be seen floating through the fieldhouse in order to emphasize their interest and overpowering. Despite the fac- ulty ' s effort to stop them, the se- niors made their way to their seats with over 150 rolls. The Senior Class united to show its spirit by ordering senior visors. The visors distinguished the seniors from other classes. Athletes of the Senior Class strived for further accomplishments as many new records were set. Included in the final moments of the year, the seniors watched their final football game of their high school years pass before their eyes. Following tradition, they marched onto the field during half-time. For past Senior Classes, senior- itis set in around spring, but for the Class of ' 77; it set in about August and continued to be strong throughout the rest of the year. VICTORY. Expressing their enthusiasm, the seniors give it all they’ve got during the pep session, with hope their cheers will lead to the defeat of Highland in football.

With only four weeks ‘til Homecoming, the pressure was on the seniors knew they had to work fast to create a win- ning float. The theme, “Let ' Em Rust in Peace”, was chosen to correspond with the theme, Wizard of Oz. A foot- ball player would hold a sprinkling can over the Tin Man, a Griffith Panther. To secure the winning combination of size, color, and creativity, a yellow tombstone was added. With two years of float building ex- perience, the seniors were able to ap- ply some tricks that helped get work done faster. With the early arrival of supplies, the seniors had an edge on their opponents, but the other classes were not far behind. Seniors were handicapped by a limited work force, since many held jobs and an early cur- few hour was in effect. Tension built as sophomores fin- ished their float almost a week early and left a few touch-up jobs for the fi- nal night. Coming into the final stretch of the float race, the final night arrived, and as the Bonfire drew to a close, the masses of people headed to Maureen Tobin’s house to finish the work on the float. Those who tried to make their way down Fisher Street found them- selves caught in traffic as cars were lined up for blocks. One of the biggest social events of the year was in progress. People were lined up wall-to-wall, busy working and gossiping. Work continued throughout the night while frequent trips were made to the other floats. As the minutes passed, many dropped into a long needed sleep, but the more lively types were entertained by Bozo and his friends, as they learned new phrases like " what are you dod-le-do-do-doing?” An oc- cassional foil fight was held and clock watching was a favorite; everyone wanted to see the sun rise. When the sun began to set, excite- ment grew. Fingers were crossed as the winners were announced. " Ju- niors— second place,” and shouts of cheers were heard, “We did it. We won again! We knew we could.” Seniors rejoice as determination, hours of work, struggle pays off as ‘Rust in Peace’ wins first place THOMAS J.

Volleyball, basketball brings students together after school hours Even if you aren’t a Wilt Chamberlin, member of the NCAA championship volleyball team, or a Chinese ping pong pro, there is no reason for you to sit on the sidelines and watch the jocks compete. You can demonstrate your skill by joining intramurals. Intramurals, starting in De- cember and lasting through April was under the direction of Mr. Steve Wroblewski, and was open to all students. A new addition to help get stu- dents become involved in or- ganizing the sports, was a three member council con- sisting of seniors Jeff Gray, and Greg Beno, and junior Julie Reppa. The cost to com- pete in each of the three differ- ent sports was $1 per sport. This money was used to award the winners with trophies. Despite three months of on and off game dates, due to the unavailability of the fieldhouse, the volleyball teams got off to a slow start but finished the sea- son with a very close final match. Volleyball had 12 teams un- der the direction of their indi- vidual team captains. Each team competed in the final tournament, which was con- ducted in a round robin man- ner. Greg Beno’s and Sandy Case ' s teams met each other in the final game of the tourna- ment. Beno’s team came out on top winning two straight games in the best of three match, 18-8 and 14-13 in over- time. Students participating in this intramural sport not only learned the fundamentals of the game volleyball, but were also able to compete and have fun. As the volleyball season came to an end, intramural basketball began. The 104 players that signed up were se- lected by the captains. Each team played in a seven game schedule and every squad par- ticipated in the season ending tournament. A new rule was added to the basketball rules to curtail some of the violence that oc- cured in the previous year’s games. This rule was that if any player committed four fouls he was out of the game. The girls ' basketball teams were not as numerous as the guys’ since they only had 20 girls sign up. Because of this the girls played at intervals be- tween the boys’ games, pick- ing new teams each time they played a game. The end of the basketball season brought about the start of the ping pong season. This intramural sport lasted three weeks and allowed the aspir- ing ping pong wizzes to chal- lenge any brave sole that dared to take them on in a match. Although Mr. Wroblewski was hoping for a bigger turn- out by the girls, he is looking forward to a good year with more students and more time available to play the games. 212 Seniors BOB LOUDERMILK LARRY LOW: Swimming 1-4 (Capt. 4); Letterman 2-4; Ensemble 4.

However, seniors earn some special ben- efits during the 12th year that help make the year special. Among these exclusive li- berties are parking areas for seniors, designated in the north and south parking lots. During the school day, many seniors receive early release, so they can get to a job or a class at Hammond Tech, Pur- due Calumet or IU Northwest. Another “privilege” is to become involved in Cadet Teaching. Here, seniors get the opportunity to try out the Other side of the desk by help- ing out at the middle and ele- mentary schools. LEFT: PROPER FIT. Preparations begin early in the year for graduation as se- nior Mary Jane Beckman measures se- nior Tom Masse to assure a comfort- ably fitting graduation cap. Such long dedication also brings relaxation as a reward. Members of the Class of ’77 spent a week, April 2-8, at Va- cation Village, Mission Bay in San Diego. For $321 they could fly to the sunny Califor- nia resort, where they could escape the work at home. Many of the 36 who went on the trip were even able to visit the San Diego Zoo and Disneyland. As their four years in the high school were coming to a close, the seniors held their traditional banquet on June 1. Although the banquet was not a school function, seniors and faculty were present for the distribution of awards and rec- ognition of fellow classmates. Senior activities culminated with graduation on June 5. Commemorating the end of their high school education, the ceremonies ended, and th e 446 graduates retired to the status of alumni of the Class of ' 77. Recognition, anticipation, end of the year bring celebration, memories, as seniors become Alumni ROBERT D. NORTON: Intramurals 1-4; Track 1,2; Band 1,2. LYNN O’BARSKE MARIBETH A.

That loud, blaring sound that means everybody outside. Close the windows, pull down the shades and shut the door behind you. Fire drills offer many advan- tages and disadvantages to students. On the plus side, when the drone of a teacher is buzzing in your ear as a lec- ture drags on, the shrill sound of the alarm can be like music to your ears since you can es- cape the classroom to get some fresh air. If it happens to be a beautiful day, 70 degrees and blue skies, then the break is even more welcome. At the same fire exit with a friend from another class, you have a brief five minutes to catch up on the rest of the daily gossip. Otherwise, you can quickly re- view the speech you have to give after class resumes. If, on the other hand, you were al- ready presenting it when the alarm struck, the extra practice won’t help. Recovering from the humiliation of that yelp which somehow escaped from your mouth as the alarm rang, you ' ve completely forgotten the speech. If it is 15 degrees outside, not 70, with strong, frigid winds and ominous clouds, you hate to even take one step out the door. With your skirt already on the flimsy side, you cannot afford to be caught in a whirling gust. Your friend from the other class and you were just in the middle of an argument before class started; you were part of the daily gossip, so how can you face her? If, by any chance, it happens to be a test day, that obnoxious ear piercing noise may mean a lower grade. A fire alarm is hardly the excuse you could use to explain a low grade to your parents. " Students may return to the building. Third hour is now over, so students should pro- ceed to their next class.” ABOVE: TIME OUT. Enabling students to get some fresh air, fire drills came in handy during the summer months and are a hindrance during the cold winter days.

ROBERT ROOTH Spirit moves Iff mighty seniors I II to unexpected win 111 over ‘aged’ faculty; v students confirm vS their seniority Seniority has always been a motivating factor in school. How- ever, when the seniors met the fac- ulty in the annual basketball game, it became a matter of who had more seniority. The seniors even sur- prised themselves by capturing the game, a fund raiser for the senior banquet. Even a green, eight feet tall dragon named " Big Stud " joined the crowd of about 350 people watching the seniors nip the faculty with a score of 49-46. During the first half, the teachers held the lead with a score of 26-20. However, after the game resumed, the seniors, led by Tim Hester, really got things moving. Tim Hester was also the leading scorer for the se- niors. Mr. Dave Knish, special edu- cation teacher, and Mr. Jack Yerkes, English teacher, each con- tributed 10 points as the leading scorers of the faculty team. " The game was well played by both sides, and it was really a good thing to get seniors and faculty to- gether. I think the teachers enjoyed the game as much as we did, " Head Coach and Class President Tom Krajewski remarked. Mr. Ed Robertson, English teacher, felt that " we (faculty) had become so confident of a win that we didn ' t practice once before the game on February 6.” Mr. Yerkes agreed and added, " this particular game showed us that we’re not as good as we thought we were.” He also felt that the game attracted a lot of fan inter- est and generated plenty of excitement. “Maybe in the future the game will be a big fund raiser since the se- niors now know they can beat us, instead of past domination of the game year after year,” Mr. Robert- son concluded. YOUTH VS. EXPERIENCE. Fighting for a victory, the se- niors, dressed in red, shoot for a basket as the teachers of the white team prepare for a rebound.

WALSH 220 Seniors Problems are solved, decisions made, seniors choose college Just when you thought it was all over, you realized you are actually at a beginning. Now that school’s over, you’ve been faced with some of the most important decisions of your life. Now where do you go? What do you do? Are you prepared for the outside world? Maybe you ' ll go to college. According to Miss Pam Allen, guidance counselor, 65% of the seniors will be attending universities throughout the na- tion. You could continue on with your education or per- haps work while going to tech- nical school. You could even serve your country by entering into the army as 11 students did. So you’ve decided to go to college. Most likely, if you wanted to be with your friends, Indiana University or Purdue would have been a good choice. Over 70 students ap- plied at I.U. and 67 have ap- plied at Purdue. If you decided to stay near home your fresh- man year, you wouldn’t be alone. There would be 33 old classmates going to Purdue Calumet Campus or Indiana University Northwest along with you. However, some students decided on leaving the state completely, as 68 students made out-of-state applications. Of the out-of-state appli- cations, Marquette, North- western, University of Ar- kansas, Washington University of St. Louis, and the University of Florida were the most ap- plied to. Fifteen students also applied to Ivy League Schools such as Harvard, Yale, and Dartmouth, and Princeton. These students seemed to have an above average talent in some field of either academ- ics, athletics, or speech and debate. So college it is. You’ve pre- pared yourself for this for most of your life. As you walk out of Munster High School for the last time you realize that it’s only the beginning. THE BEST CHOICE. One alternative for gradu- ation is college. Senior Tim Moehl reviews a col- lege handbook before choosing the school best suited to his needs. TIM WALSH DON WARNEKE DIANA WATSON: GTO. JAMES B.

ELLEN WEBBER Seniors 221 Outstanding seniors receive deserved recognition The crowds cheered as the state winning swim team approached the floor. " That’s my team,” one fan re- marked. Many people feel that being an athlete signifies dependability and leadership, for these things ef- fect success and honor. This is also true with scholastic awards. Senior Sue Feingold was chosen the Indiana State winner of the Daughters of the American Rev- olution Good Citizen Contest. Se- lected by the faculty on the basis of leadership, dependability, service, and patriotism, she took a national examination to merit the state award. “I was honored to be named the school winner,” Sue said, “and I through state, national awards, honors was privileged to represent Munster works but also why it as the state recipient. Such qualifications were also taken into consideration when se- niors Rhonda Brauer, Sue Feingold, Rob Rankin, and Bob Trent were se- lected to attend the Presidential Classroom for Young Americans throughout the nation. Each of these four students stayed in Washington D.C. one week to observe Capitol Hill in ac- tion. In addition to visiting the state’s Senators and Representa- tives, they were able to see the Con- gress in session. Rob felt the Presidential Class- room was a good experience to learn not only how government works. “I learned a lot about American gov- ernment by seeing it actually work- ing. I hope the program is continued for next year ' s seniors, because it was worthwhile.” Another outstanding senior, rec- ognized for high academic and leadership qualities was nominated as a Presidential Scholar. “The Presidential Scholar is a very diffi- cult award to win; no one from Mun- ster has ever been awarded this honor,” Dr. Karl Hertz, principal, said of Nan Sutter, who was one of 750 seniors nominated nation-wide based on SAT scores and extracur- ricular activities.

I know all of you will be more than willing to cooperate. I want each of you to get a survey and try to answer the questions.” “What kind of fun is there in high school?” Dave read aloud with a puz- zled tone, as a group of us examined the questionaire. “The most fun I found this year was when we made up those cheat sheets for those kids, only to have the teacher find out about it, and change the test.” “Well look,” I said to him, “there ' s one example that fits the survey, a funny incident concerning the life of a struggling junior.” Both of us fell into silence as we re- membered the good and also the bad times of our junior year. “Do you remember when we got our class rings?” I asked Dave. “I can still see you putting the ring on your finger, only to discover that it was too tight. You had to go to the clinic to get it off.” “That’s only because my finger swelled up so badly. " Dave said in defense. " Do you remember all the car washes and bake sales we had last summer trying to make money for Prom?” Dave asked. " Well at least we had a great Prom. What could be bet- ter than the theme, ‘Could It Be Magic?’ ” “Just think of all the fun we had when we worked on the junior float. I’ll never forget the time when one of the girls decided to jump up on the flat bed only to have it collapse when she put pressure on it. At least we placed sec- ond with ' Either Way It’s a Mustang Victory’, " I said with a small hint of humor. “Well, school isn’t all that fun. Re- member we still have a term paper in English in addition to all those History projects,” I told Dave, just trying to give an overall look at things. “Don’t think we’re the only two that have to do term papers and History projects. There are 450 others that are in the same boat as we are.” “Hey, we got to get back to school before it closes. " “WHAT?” I screamed! “Why, we have to get back, so we can get a survey.

As you got a little older, you be- came ready to start kindergarten, a place where they still called you a “Junior”. The name became so fa- miliar to you that you almost forgot your real name. You thought that maybe even your parents changed your name. Going through the years with your first bicycle and losing your first tooth were all part of the life you remember the best. The time came when you finally began to realize that the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus no longer existed in your mind. You could feel yourself grow older as your cars and dolls were put away for footballs and make-up. You weren ' t called Junior any- more by anyone. How good it feels to finally be grown up! High school years soon arrived. You knew that if you made it this far you’d have to reach your goals and succeed in life. Three years later when you reached 11th grade, you were la- beled as a “Junior” again, but this time you did not feel put down so much. You still had much to achieve and lots to learn, but you were in high school with two years of dignity and privileges as an upperclassman ahead of you and all the anticipation of your days until graduation. Finally, it seemed, you were sat- isfied with simply being what you were. in Jj CLIMBING TO THE TOP. Once again juniors prove they can make it as they build a pyramid to show class spirit at the Junior-Senior powder puff football game. 227 Sherry Hughes David Hyde Brett Ingram David Jacobson Mike Jagadich Betty Janian Lori Janik Lee Japkowski Linda Jeorse Rick Johns David Johnson Gayle Johnson Karen Johnson Lenora Johnson Tony Jurkash Bryan Kaminski Luanne Kaminsky Paul Kanic Greg Kaplan Kim Kasper Ted Katsahnia Paul Keckich Megan Kelly Kevin Keyes Nancy Kiesling Pam Kiser Bruce Klawinski Yvonne Klootwyk John Klyczek Belinda Komarowski Marge Korzenecki Mike Koufos Warren Kovich Phillip Kowalczyk Sandra Kowaisyn Nancy Krause Laurie Kristoff Debra Kruczek Mark Kruzan Debbie Kucer Gordon Kunz Karen Kvasnica Dave Kwasny Ceasar Labitan Lynn Ladd Carol Landay Dan Landers Jill Langendorff Marianne Lanman Mark Lapa Cindie LaRoche Mark Lazerwitz Jerry Leahy Bernice Lee Chuck Lee Edward Leeney Mike Lentz Debbie Levan Carol Lichtsinn Janice Lisle Francis Loo Robert Longhauser Wendy Lorentzen Dave Luera Pam Maas Terry Mack Sue Maginot Mark Mamich Tim Mannion Jim Margraff Phil Marks Sue Marshall 228 Juniors find jobs needed source of income Reaching her hand out to you, the bank teller counts out your money. You take the money and smile as you put your two weeks’ earnings in your wallet. What a great feeling you get when you received your very first p aycheck. All that hard work seems worth the effort. You can even remember your very first day. With a clean and neatly ironed uniform and your brand new white shoes, you pre- pared to leave for work about an hour or so early. Butterflies filled your stomach and your body was shaking. Even though you started out early, you found yourself run- ning short of time. You only had ten minutes left to drive to work. As you ran out the door, your mom decided to take a picture of her little child on the first day of her job. The poses you had to stand in were ridiculous, but you went along because you didn’t have time to argue. It would waste too much time; time you didn’t have. You arrived at work with a minute to spare— just enough time to comb your hair and put on your hat. Yog were handed a name tag to wear. Then you were nicely told to remove your nail polish and take off your jewelry. On the way up to the kitchen, you glanced in the mirror and wished you could have worn your neck- lace anyway. Your first day turned out pretty well. You only dropped one thing and tripped over your feet twice. The hours passed slowly, though you were glad when the day finally came to an end. But after work was over you couldn’t wait until your next day. You met many new people and knew you would have a great time working with them. As your day ended you checked your schedule to see when you had to work next. " Great!” you thought, because you had a week to calm your nerves and rest. Your boss calls; he said that you should have been at work today. You discover that you read the schedule wrong, and then you apologize for not coming. You promised him that the same thing would not happen again. You never thought that a job could be filled with so many dif- ferent experiences. After remembering the many incidents of your first few days, you sigh and are glad you have the job. MA Y I TAKE YOUR ORDER.

WHAT: Career seminars arranged by the Guidance Depart- ment WHEN: Weekdays specified on the announcements. WHERE: In the Hospice. HOW: By inviting members of the community to share their occupational interests with you. To high school students, going to college or holding a steady job once seemed years ' away, but many stu- dents are finding a necessity to start planning now for the future years of their lives. Two years ago the Guidance De- partment began a special program to help the students plan ahead. They or- ganized a collection of information about various careers, and invited people who practice these different occupations, both professionals, and non-professionals. It ' s not a lecture, but more a type of informal discussion. The list of guest speakers repre- sented a range of vocations, varying from an airline pilot to a social worker. A lawyer, interior decorator, construc- tion engineer, fashion model, and po- liceman also were on hand at the dis- cussions held with the students. The most important reason that the seminars were begun was: WHY: To give you the chance to learn about jobs first hand and to show you the wide range of opportunities that await you. New seminars help students to learn about some careers that may interest them in future years LEFT: A TIP FROM THE TOP. Insurance salesman Mr. Robert Dunn leads one of the seminars as he answers students ' ques- tions about life and automobile insurance.

" Such are reasons among stu- dents suddenly seen limping around on crutches. Some others are almost unbelievable: tripping on the rug or falling out of bed during a bad dream. These acci- dents effect not only a little pain and perhaps a cast and a pair of crutches, but also a great deal of sympathy and attention from other students. Seemingly, these temporarily disabled were even catered to by fellow classmates. To allow for a slower pace of movement, students with injured limbs were allowed to leave class five to ten minutes earlier than usual. Of course, there was al- ways some kind, benevolent per- son at hand to help carry books and open doors. One would won- der, though, if this Samaritan’s act was out of sheer kindness or just through a burning desire to get out of class early. Having a broken ankle or a knee just healing from surgery, however, did not just involve courtesy from friends and family. The ability to do just the simple things in daily life was lost by those unable to walk indepen- dently without aid. Imagine not being able to walk down the stairs unless stopping on each and every step. Life became in- convenient, as such simple tasks as driving a car or taking a shower became difficult. Finally, the day came when the cast was to be removed. You could move about with greater ease at last. If only you hadn ' t broken your arm as you were leaving the hospital. SLOW MOTION.

Tenth grader? " Am I an “underclassman” or an “up- perclassman”? I guess I’ll just pick up from last year and make my way through this year. In preparation for next year’s prom, the Sophomore Class tried a new method of raising money by selling Christmas candles un- der the direction of their class sponsor, Mr. Steve Tomasula. Fundraisers included the tradi- tional dances, several bake sales, and car washes. Life as a sophomore included participating in the usual high school events. Many of the 437 sophomores became involved in the Homecoming activities, par- ticipated in varsity and intramural sports, and attended football and basketball games. Sharing the pep and the spirit of the student body, sophomores found their place among the other students in the high school society as ‘ ' upper-under- classmen " looking forward to next year when they would be juniors.

You can surely tell by looking in the hall. A girl comes to school wearing the newest and latest fashions, a cowl neck sweater. Your first thought is that this poor girl was in an automobile ac- cident and had to wear a neck brace. When you take a second look, how- ever, you realize that she didn’t break her neck after all. Its just one of the many new styles. You then say to your- self, “Hey that ' s not bad looking. Maybe I’ll go shopping tonight and get myself one.” Then you might see someone walk- ing down the hall wearing a pair of gouchos and a pair of cowboy boots. You feel like asking her where she parked her horse. In a short time, ev- eryone can be seen wearing them and you know that another style has come into the picture and they don’t wear these while they are riding their horses— most people don’t even own a horse. After a while you feel left out because you don’t own a pair and beg your mom to buy you a pair, because you would just die if you didn’t have gouchos and a pair of cowboy boots like everybody else. So your mother spends $30 for your goucho skirt and $60 for the cowboy boots; you’re all set. You are so excited for Monday to come. You must have tried on your outfit at least ten times, checking your- self in the mirror. So today is the big day. You look great. Your hair is fixed nice and in the latest fashion; your make-up is on per- fectly, and there’s not a wrinkle in your new outfit. What’s this? Skirts with poodles on them? Angora sweaters? Bobby socks and saddles shoes? I think I’m gonna faint! Records are always popular year af- ter year. Stevie Wonder’s new album, " Songs in the Key of Life,” and Rod Stewart’s, " Night on the Town,” were some of the more popular ones. Concerts were also a very big deal in the past year. Some of the more popu- lar were those of the Eagles and the Doobie Brothers. CB radios were a favorite way of communicating among many young and old people. Flying down the sidewalk with the wind in your face, you yell to the people nearby, " Coming through! " You weave in and out of the cracks in the street, making sure you don’t touch one of them with your wheels. Skateboards are also very convenient methods of travel. Changes are always happening, and people feel without changes, life would be dull.

The movie ends at 9:30 so tell him to be in front of the the- ater about that time. Maybe he should come around 9:45 to give us a chance to get out of the door so he won ' t have to wait that long for us.” “See you at 7:30 at your house, bye. " Does this type of conversation sound familiar to you? Does it sound like the words you heard when you were a sophomore? The under- classmen are always faced with the problem of how to get places without the use of an automobile in a town where there is no bus service nor a taxi cab service. Students who were faced with this problem usually solved it by riding their bike or walk ing. When this solu- tion was not feasible, they just sat at home. Sometimes if you were lucky, and a friend had an older brother or sister, then things weren’t so bad. They were able to chauffer you around and take you where you wanted to go. If you were going out with an older guy at the time, with his license though most usually aren’t that fortunate, you didn’t have to worry about who was going to drive. But, remember the times when he couldn’t get the car be- cause his older brother wanted it. You ended up staying at home watching the reruns of “The Three Stooges.” What fun! If you had a half day of school and had the craving for Mac’s you’d have to ride your bike to school; you were paranoid for three hours, wondering if your 10-speed transportation system would still be there when yo u got out of school. If it wasn’t, then you would have to walk home because you had no other means of transportation, and you no longer had the craving for or the money to spend on a Quarter Pounder and shake. It was even worse when December rolled around and the snow began to fall. Your mom was never home to pick you up, after waiting at the phone a half hour. By the end of the year you’d have gone to summer school, and if you were lucky enough, you ' d be taking Driver’s Ed. You then started anticipat- ing the next year when you would get your license.

I’m here in the vicinity of Fisher on lo- cation at the Sophomore Class float, where masses of students have been roaming around since Sept. 20. This large gathering of 437 sophomores has struggled to combine paper, nail, wire, and wood into their final goal: Emer- ald City. To keep you informed of the many activities as I see them, I ' ll first be moving to the headquar- ters of the entire mass operation, the flower making center. All of the students down here are work- ing to make enough flowers to cover the entire float. Here’s Jane sitting on a mound of multicol- ored flowers. “Hmm . . . Jane? How’s the float coming along?” “Oh, we’re doing pretty well, our motto is ‘More supply than demand,’ and that’s how we man- age to keep ahead of the need.” " Oh, I see, very interesting. One more question: Will you fin- ish by Oct. 8?” “Will we finish? Not only will we finish, we’ll finish ahead of all the rest of them!” . . . What’s happening? I think it’s raining paper flowers. Geez. I better get out of here. Moving on outside, construc- tion of the float is nearly finished. I’ve just been informed that there is a problem downstairs. As well as I can visualize, there aren’t enough green flowers to finish Emerald City, and the herds of people have all disappeared. So much for Jane’s motto! I looked at my watch; it is late, which suggests that the class won ' t finish their float in time to line up at the Ridge Methodist Church by 1:30 p.m. Well, this is your roaming re- porter, reporting from Mustang field. They’re just about to an- nounce the float winners. Here it comes ... " Second runner-up goes to the Sophomore Class and their " We’re Going to Shine Tonight” with the Emerald City. CAREFUL DETAILING. Final considerations to the blue- print and design of the plans for the sophomore float are made by Kurt Kappes, class president. 240 Sophomores Sue Meredith Mark Mihalo Patty Miles Laura Miller Scott Miller Gary Milliken Dave Minas Denise Miniuk Diane Miskus Michelle Montes Terry Moore Mike Morningstar Howard Morrison Gale Morrow Ron Moskovsky Lisa Moss Dean Moya Kevin Moynagh Bill Mulhearn Mellisa Murin Dan Nagy Tony Navarro Dave Nelson Robert Nelson Janet Niksic Diane O ' Buch Tom O’Connell Chuck O ' Connor Jeff Olan Tony Olesh Pat Opatera Chris Orlandi Cheryl Padberg Bryan Pajor Elaine Palaiologos John Palosz Jill Pasko Carl Paunicka Joli Pellar Bill Peterson Connie Peterson Linda Phipps Dawn Plesha Kathy Plesha Karen Plunkett Brian Polak Barb Polonis Michael Prater Pam Prendergast Lisa Prus Jerry Pruzin Cathy Przybysz Erin Przybul Dan Rakos Liz Ramirez John Ramos Brian Rasmus Janise Rasmus Josie Raymundo Mike Reach Mary Reck Jim Rednour Donna Reichett David Rentfro Jeff Resler Bill Rhind Wendy Richards Beth Robertson Randy Robertson Mike Rodriguez Joyce Rovai Sophomons 241 Sherri Rosario Lisa Roth John Rudakas Doug Ryan Jeff Saksa Cheryl Salanty Kelly Samels John Sannito Naomi Savage Sandy Schaub Mark Scheffel Kim Schuljak Bob Schultz Meg Schwerin Mike Sebenste Pam Seefurth Jayne Selby Steve Serna Shari Sferruzza Evie Shoemaker Rob Sharkey Patty Sharp Suzy Shaw Scott Sickles Tom Sidor Donna Sjoerdsma Gary Silverman Sheryl Simmons Shona Sinisi Dave Sipkosky John Siple Jeff Skorupa Diane Skurka Janine Slivka Caryn Smith Ethan Smith Jim Smith Mike Smith Kathy Snow Tim Souther John Spence Carrie Speranza Cherrie Spurlock Paula Spurlock Lee Ann Stankie Sharon St. Arnaud Kathy Stavros Barb Steiger Ken Steorts Nancy Surufka Mary Sury Jim Szczepaniak Linda Talent Roberta Tankel Joni Taylor Carol Terpstra Todd Thorn berg 242 Sophomores Nancy Thornberry Dan Tomaszewski Dan Tomczak Sara Tresouthick Brad Truver John Vandertoll Leane VanDerWey Joyce VerBoom Tod Vidovich Jeff VonAlmen Tod Wachala Scott Walcutt Brant Walker Mike Walker Coleen Walsh Dave Wanthal “Talent” has different meanings to different people. To some it means being able to play the piano without taking lessons. To others it signifies running the mile in under four minutes. Perhaps it’s getting straight A’s or scoring over twenty-five points in a basketball game. For some talented in- dividuals, the ability to excel comes naturally. Others gain proficiency and adeptness only through hours of practice. Sophomore Jane Kiernan has both types of talent. It is her natural talent that sparked her interest in swimming and led her to pursue this activity. To do this she had to devote much time to both swimming practices and actual competition. Jane was rewarded for her efforts in 1975 when she was one of two freshmen swim team members to com- pete at the state meet. Her natural abil- ity and talent carried her through at state where she became " Individual State Champion” in the 50 yard free- style event and, adding to this accom- plishment, achieved third place in the 100 yard freestyle. She once again captured first place in the 50-yard freestyle event at the 1976 state meet. According to Jane, she enjoys swimming very much, but even more than this she enjoys the fellowship of other swimmers and the spirit of com- petition. Swimming has also helped her to establish her limitations of endurance. First, third places at state meet show that Jane has got it all together as she displays winning style Not Pictured: Sharon Brian Brad Burke David Dillard Peter Knapik Mark Knesek Kim Knutson Debra Kumicich Richard Lammering Larry Lang Marc Lukowski Mirko Marie Kent Nelson Kim Passales James Smith Robert Webber Cathy Watson Katie Webb Tim Webb Roz Whitcombe Amy White Dan Whitlatch Mary Wiger John Wilhelm Mary Wilkinson Tim Wilson Greg Winkler Debbie Witkowski Pam Wlazik Roberta Wohrle Darren Woolsey Dan Wozniak Bob Wulf Debbie Yalowitz Mark Zacok Jeff Zajac John Zajac Kelly Zatorski Mark Zielazny Karen Zygmunt Sophomores 243 Tammy Abrahamson Susan Acheson Betty Adamczyk Emre Aktay Leslie Allen Anna Marie Almase Mark Alt Barbara Austen Philip Backe Jeff Bagherpour Brad Bailey Bill Baker Tom Baldwin Susan Baran Jill Barath Bryan Barringer Mary Lou Barron Jill Bartelli Mike Bauschelt Derek Beach Delores Beatty Bill Beckman Dan Behrens Scott Bellar Anne Bernacke Brian Bielski Mark Biesen Chris Black Becky Blackford Julie Blaesing Robert Blazevich Sue Block Nancy Bochnowski Rick Bohling Crystal Boldin Doug Bombar John Bopp Slavko Bosnich Renee Bossi Bill Bovenkerk Kevin Bowen Scott Boyd Mike Branco Judy Brauer Laura Brauer Kathleen Brennan Mark Brickman John Brodersen Janice Brown Matt Brozovic Tim Bruce Glen Brumm Susan Buckol Tim Burbich Denise Burger Bob Burks Jeff Callahan Bill Callis Susan Capps Eric Carlson 244 Freshmen Karen Carlson Brant Carpenter Linda Case Jean Cerajewski Luanne Cerne Robert Chechi Joe Chruby Felipe Chua Tom Cleland Dave Collison Mike Condos Terry Conley Fred Connor Rick Conway Tom Corsiglia Mark Crago Mike Crary Sandy Crary Sue Curtis Kathy Czapczyk Donna Dahlkamp Jim DalSanto Karl D ' arcy Mike Daves Dear Diary: Today was my first big day of high school. As I crawled out of bed at seven o’clock, I put on my jeans, a T- shirt, and saddle shoes. I looked in the mirror, quickly swallowed my juice, and ran out the door hoping to make my bus. I had no time to waste, so I ran to my first class. Out of breath, I took a seat in the back of the room, and real- ized I was in the wrong class. I felt so dumb when everyone in the class started snickering as I walked out of the room. Things got worse as the day went on. Lunch had to be the low part of the day. There were four lunch lines; which one was right? I decided on a four course meal and dessert but I didn’t have enough money, ine caKe had to go back. Then came the difficult task of finding a seat in a very crowded cafeteria. Fortunately my three afternoon classes went by quickly. Luckily I had brought my Student Handbook with me or I would never have found any of my classes! Thank goodness the editor of the book put in a map of the school for the lost freshmen. After school I tried to find my locker. After roaming the corridors I found it, but I could not figure out how to open it. I must have done my com- bination 20 times, however, I just couldn’t seem to get it open. After banging and kicking it for a while, Mr. Tenant came to my rescue and opened it with a key.

So far so good. Let’s see, what is my next class? Biology? Uh, oh! It sounds kind of hard. “Excuse me, could you tell me where Biology class is held? " " It’s down that hall by the office.” " Thanks. How is it? " " What? Biology? Oh, it is fairly easy. You work at your own pace, and can go to the lab or to the lecture hall on your own. One warning: it gets to be hard to check out a book, espe- cially at the end of a grad- ing period. If you get a book, you’re lucky. If you get your work done on time you have nothing to worry about.” " Thanks again.” So, here I am. I can feel it— I’m not going to do so well. Should be a break, though, if we can move around independently. What? Assigned seats? We can’t move around at all?! Wait— that guy told me . . Well, at least we get our own books, so I should at least be able to get done on time. Oh no, we have six additional units to do this year? Why all the pol- icy changes? Why does this always happen to me? Why me? Look at all these words we have to look up! And the tests are so hard. I thought this was going to be easier. Maybe if I was not a freshman, things would not be so hard! But if I wasn ' t a freshman, I wouldn’t be taking this Bi- ology class . . . MAIN OBJECTIVES.

Well, I made it in time for Homecoming. Oh, we have 420 new faces! Looks like they’re a really cooper- ative bunch. I can tell they’re going to tire me quite quickly. How exhausting this is! I’ve got to be all over at once— in school all week and at floats each night. Then, on Friday there’s the parade and the game. Well, at least there will be two weeks rest before the Highland game. This week shouldn’t be bad since the game will be away. Boy, am I wrong! What pep this student body has! Football season is barely over, and I’m already ex- hausted.

Freshmen began a climb upward through their years of high school in a number of other ways. Gaining recog- nition as a freshman, Laura Murin won medals in the Junior Olympics as a gymnast. Not only was hers a personal victory, but also one for her class and the school. Another accomplished freshman, Julie Tussey, has entered the world of modeling. After taking a twenty week Barbizon modeling course at the John Hancock Building in Chicago during the summer, she now awaits further experiences as a professional model. Two out of a crowd of 420 have grasped high in the world of accom- plishments. With another three years of opportunities in high school, who knows how far freshmen can go?! WINNING STYLE.
