It is nec- essary for me to bid you farewell. I have acquired knowledge of Munster High School and a deep understanding of your philosophy, ' Make It Or Break It. ' " ... It seems like only yesterday that I heard Zack ' s peculiar voice for the very first time. He was such an unusual for- eign exchange student, and walking to school that morning, I really had a hard time trying to explain Munster to him. " How do you pronounce your name again? " " Zackxephminoanzyplinony. " " Oh, well, if you don ' t mind, I think I ' ll just call you Zack. Now, Zack, you are probably going to be uptight your first day here. I know it will be hard, but really there is just one thing that you ' ll have to learn right away. Here you have to Make It Or Break It. " " Make It? " " Sure. Set your targets. " " Break It? " " Yeah, break a few records, traditions. Make some changes. " " I do not comprehend your meaning. " " Don ' t catch my drift, huh? Well, just look over there at the water tower. " " Is that green hypodrome where you store your fuel source? " " Uh, no. We put our water in there. But see what it says on the side? Mun- ster: Swim Capital of Indiana. You see, the girls swim team just won their third straight championship and the boys are working on their sixth straight title. They have to either make it or break it. Now what do you think of that, Zack? " " Beep deep deep beeeeeepp. " " What was that? " " Please disregard last entry. " " Sure Zack. Now look over there at Community Park. There used to be a pa- vilion there that was called the shelter. It was where the kids hung out to do their smoking, but it was torn down in Octo- ber to break the bad reputation that it was giving the school. Well, here we are. Munster High School, 8808 Columbia Avenue. Well, now what do you think? " " Beeeep. Eeep beep. " " Hunh? Didn ' t quite catch that, Zack. " " Please disregard last entry. " " Whatever you say, kid. Hey, come on. The first person in the school that you should probably meet is principal Dr. Karl Hertz. His office is just down the hall and then to the left. " " Well, actually, he ' s not our only leader. We have an entire administra- tion. Even that is one of our changes, (continued on page 5) lltl cr THE Ml S HIND X X )U ABOVE LEFT: While waiting to see Mr. Tennant, freshman Kathy Czapczyk finds herself a quiet cor- ner in order to catch up on her homework.

Maybe he can help you with your schedule. " " Yes, I would be very interested in studying the molecular structure of man. " " Uh ... I think you mean biology. Come to think of it, maybe I should show you around some more before you talk to either Dr. Hertz or Mr. Baw- den. You just do not seem to have caught on yet, Zack. Where did you say you came from? " " Hunlianponminkuthpumkinonian. " " Hungarian, Huh? All right, but be sure to pay attention now. This is the chemistry lab and then this— " " Wait. Danger, I believe we should seek refuge. Red-and-white humanoids seem to be attacking. Run " " Red and white? Oh, you mean all of those Drill Team girls. Zack, those are just pom-pons they ' re carrying— not se- cret weapons. Stop beeping at them for heavens sakes. Actually, there are not even so many of them— only 28. Gosh, I guess they have been breaking traditions too. Last year there were 44 girls. " Are you confident this is not an in- vasion? The corridors are becoming quite congested. " " Zack, kids are just going to their classes, but it ' s still early yet. Just wait until all 1770 students get here! Now come on. We have to walk through the fieldhouse to get to the South Building. " " Fieldhouse? " " Sure, you know. Physical Education classes are held there— and basketball games . . . and track meets and .... Well, you will see. Those boys and girls over there playing volleyball are in PE now. Hey, isn ' t that a real change?— Co-ed classes! They are even learning more practical skills like bowling, tennis and golf. What do you think of that, Zack? " " Beep. Deep hoop-de-hoop. " " Hoop? Oh, you like basketball? People really know MHS for its reputa- tion in sports. We have teams placing in State finals, individuals selected for State teams and even two students who have won the Indiana High School Athletic Association Mental Attitude Awards. It ' s like winning has become a tradition. And, like I said, what it comes down to is that you must Make It Or Break It. " " Such as when aiming for an inter- galactic target? " " Bullseye! I think you ' re catching on. But you know, we don ' t just compete in sports. Don ' t forget organizations like Speech and Debate and Chess Club. They also represent the school and have a reputation to live up to. It ' s all up to them. Even new groups like Spanish Club really have to work to be able to say they have made it. " Besides the organizations, even each student has to at some time take on the attitude that he must either make it or break it. Whether striving for a grade in a certain class or trying out for the fall play, whatever happens, he knows that it all just depends on him. Well, Zack, here ' s the cafeteria. We have to whisper now. Study hall meets here, and unlike other years, now you can ' t talk. See how quiet it is— now that ' s a real change. You can even hear the morning announcements. " ATTENTION. THERE WILL BE A PRIDE COMMITT EE MEETING TODAY IN ROOM 2. " A meeting? You know, Zack, it ' s a shame, but that ' s the only meeting that has been called since Homecoming. Like the other changes in the school, Student Government tried breaking the old ways for an improvement. Well, no one seems to feel that forming a Pride Committee and Class Executive Counsel was enough. Sometimes just a change isn ' t enough to make it. Understand, Zack? " " I am developing an awareness. " " Uh . . . good. Well, then here ' s the South Office. They will get you your schedule and everything that you ' ll need. I have to get to class so . . . it ' s all in your hands now. " " Very well. I will venture out into this galaxy on my own and test for myself your philosophy. I shall store it in my memory bank. Beeeeppp Beeppp. MAKE IT OR BREAK IT.

Dear Cousin Mabel, Hi! How was your summer? Mine was fantastic! The first thing I did was to put my noisy alarm clock away until next September. But after I had slept in a few days, I realized it was time to begin mak- ing plans for the three wonderful months of summer. I turned into a real beach bum this summer. As soon as I felt the warm sand between my toes and the gentle touch of the sun ' s rays that first day in June, I knew I was there to stay! I was deter- mined to have a great tan no matter how long it took. To achieve this perfect golden tan, I suffered through sun tan lo- tions of every kind, hours and hours of sun bathing, and two agonizing sun- burns along with all of the peeling and awful itching! The annual Fourth of July Carnival at Community Park was great! Everybody was there from school. In addition to the rides, there were numerous booths and games. One ride, I think it was called the " Octopus, " was a little too much for me! I was careful to avoid that when I went to the Lake County Fair later in August. My friend and I decided instead to stick with watching the cows and pigs while we were there! They also had all kinds of prize-winning produce and inventions from students in the 4-H Club. I even visited Egypt in August! No, I ' m just kidding! I did the next best thing, though, and visited the King Tut exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago. My family and I left real early in the morning to avoid the crowds, and were we ever surprised when we got there! The line was so long I got tired just looking at it! Hours later we finally got in. Although I was starving and my legs felt like lead sinkers, it was all worth it because the exhibit was fascinating. So, as you can see I ' ll have plenty of warm memories during the cold, winter months ahead.

Oscar lead, way to Sesame Street O n a street in a world of childhood dreams, the muppets gathered around Big Bird ' s nest in excite- ment. It was a beautiful day filled with laughter and sunshine. Many days earlier they had been invited to participate in the Homecoming activities at Munster High School. They did not want to waste another beautiful day, so they packed their bags and set off. Over hills and valleys, through brooks and rivers, they marched on singing and dancing. All, that is, except for Oscar the Crouch. He constantly complained about their happy mood. Over the rumble Ernie was heard to ask, “Can you tell me how to get to Munster? " As they finally walked into town, they couldn ' t believe their eyes. It was like a home away from home. Surprises had been constructed for the muppets. Before their arrival, students worked day and night on the floats. But it wasn ' t all work. Tuesday night, seeing that construction of their float was com- ing along slowly, some seniors created a S.W.A.T. team. Dressed in dark jackets and equipped with toy guns, they set out for the sophomore float. They intended to harmlessly kidnap sophomores to make them help on the senior float. The muppets arrived in time to partici- pate in “Spirit Week " . Along with the students, they dressed up in jeans and jerseys, costumes, gangster and nostalgic outfits, formals, and the school colors, red and white. The excitement had just begun. Thurs- day night they were escorted to the bon- fire at Community Park. Bert and Ernie were astonished at the huge pile of wood.The destruction of the shelter was one contribution to the size of the woodpile. The muppets stood in awe as the wood was set ablaze. They were startled as hundreds of firecrackers ex- ploded the head of the dummy pirate. Everyone cheered with enthusiasm. Un- like previous years, there wasn ' t a pep session. But this did not matter to the muppets. The spirit of the school was quite obvious to them.

(continued from page 11) After an eventful evening, the mup- pets watched as the students left secretly in groups. They wondered what was go- ing on but decided to get some rest for the next day. While the muppets slept, the sophomores, juniors, and seniors worked busily into the early hours of the morning adding finishing touches to their floats. The next day, after taking front row seats, the muppets eagerly awaited the parade. Due to the construction on Ridge Road, the parade was rerouted. It started at Ribordy ' s drugstore on 45th Avenue and continued down Fran-lin. Finally it reached Columbia Avenue and the muppets, and were they surprised! Big Bird danced in amazement as he looked at a replica of himself. A smile was even seen on Oscar. After the parade, they were treated to Speech and Debate team ' s annual chicken barbecue. For only $2.75 they feasted on chicken, coleslaw, potato salad, hot buttered rolls, ice-cream, and milk or coffee. Cookie Monster even ad- mitted that it was better than cookies. Hurriedly finishing their chicken, the muppets rushed over to the football field in an attempt to get good seats. A record breaking crowd of 9500 came to watch the clash between undefeated Munster and second-ranked Merrillville, (continued on page 15) Homecoming 13 FAR LEFT: Excitement prevails as the Homecoming court of senior princesses Linda Jeorse, Kathy Collins and Home- coming queen Luann Revenew and her escort senior Doug Weinberg take a walk down Sesame Street along with princesses junior Pam Seefurth, soph- omore Janet Nottoli, and freshman Sara Kovich. (continued from page 13) During halftime, music filled the air as the Marching Band performed to “Rub- ber Duckie, " the Sesame Street theme and “Sing a Song. " Grover, Cookie Mon- ster, Oscar, and the Count joined in the festivities as they danced around the field. The music quieted as the Home- coming court took a walk down Sesame Street. As the muppets stood in wonder, freshman princess Sara Kovich, soph- omore princess Janet Nottoli, junior princess Pam Seefurth, and senior prin- cesses Kathy Collins and Linda Jeorse, and queen Luann Revenew walked re- gally on the field. The results of float competition were then announced. First place was awarded to the seniors ' Big Bird and Os- car with the theme, " Can the Pirates. " The sophomores received second place with Kermit the Frog and the theme " Make ' EM Croak. " Third placed was given to the juniors for Cookie Monster and the theme " Crunch Them Til They Crumble. " The outcome of the game was a dis- appointment as the Mustangs lost by a discouraging score of 28-7. It didn ' t seem possible, but there was still more to come. Saturday night the muppets assembled in the cafeteria for the dance. Sesame Street came alive as freshmen, dressed as little kids, served cookies, hors d ' oeuvres, and punch. Murals of Sesame Street characters which decorated the walls also made them feel at home. The muppets joined in the dancing to the band " Together " . With a week of excitement behind them, the muppets set out for home. Back at Sesame Street they assembled in front of Mr. Hooper ' s store. They talked into the night about gangsters and bon- fires, princesses and floats, and their home-away-from-home.

I t was the cold, starless night of Oct. 11. The school parking lots and the football field were empty. Suddenly the stillness was broken by the sound of 57 junior girls running across the south parking lot into the warmth of the school, chanting " J-U-N-l-O-R-S! " . From the opposite side, similar cheering could be heard. " S-E-N-l-O-R-S! " As both teams ran onto the field, the crowds were being led in cheers by six junior and five senior boys dressed in skirts, sweaters, long underwear and wigs. Throughout the Powder Puff Football game, the tension was broken only by the antics of the cheerleaders playing a mock football game and the crowning of the Powder Puff King, senior Bill Zweige, at halftime festivities. At the end of the game, the 30 senior girls, coached by Mr. Bob Maicher, math teacher; Mr. Robert Shinkan, math teacher; and Mr. David Russell, English teacher, emerged victorious with a final score of 34-6. Scoring touchdowns for the seniors were Sandy Capps, Linda Jeorse, Debbie Kucer, and Lydia Megr- emis. Scoring the only touchdown for the juniors, coached by industrial arts teachers, Mr. Steve Tomasula and Mr. John McDonald, was Linda Mandel dur- ing the second quarter. Shouts could be heard from both teams as they moved off the field, the seniors, glad to have kept up the senior record, and the juniors, proud that they helped earn $397 for both classes. As the lights dimmed on the field, the weary girls trudged home to spend the next few days treating their bruised and scratched bodies with tender care.

The world of jeans and tennis shoes was transformed into elegance. It was a moment of preparation, anticipa- tion, and excitement. Each formal dance was different, yet each was the same. The problems, prep- aration, and traditions were all part of the excitement. Homecoming was the first dance encountered. Held October 22, it was the climax of the Homecoming festivities. The theme, " Sesame Street " , displayed a childlike mood. It revealed the spirit and pep in everyone. Providing the music for the evening was " Together. " The cafeteria was transformed into a land of muppets. Freshmen worked ev- eryday after school for two to three weeks painting murals and cutting out letters and Sesame Street characters. They purchased these decorations with $150 donated by the Pride Committee. The final decorations and finishing tou- ches were arranged on Saturday before the dance. Many hours were dedicated to the Sesame Street world. That eve- ning, the freshmen could not be found. Hidden under masks of Bert and Ernie, they served the guests and added to the atmosphere. Chi, sponsored by the Chi Kappa Chi sorority, held many different features than that of Homecoming. It was held at Frank H. Hammond School on Janu ary 7, a later date than in the past due to conflicts with extra-curricular activities. The traditional theme centering around winter, " The Colorful World of Winter " , established a holiday mood of the en- joyment of snow and Christmas. Once again the band " Together " provided the music. Due to a time limit, the decorations were put up immediately after school and the work Continued late into the night. Pastel colors brightened up the cafeteria of Frank Hammond. The " Col- orful World of Winter " was ready. Little snowmen favors and memory booklets were issued at the dance as a remem- brance of the evening. Prom was a magical time, a moment of dreams. Unlike Chi and Home- coming, Prom activities took place the entire weekend.

At 12 o ' clock the couples headed for the Wicker Park Social Cen- ter for Post-Prom. " Scraps " highlighted the evening. Preparations for Prom began months in advance. The estimated total cost of Prom was $5500. Tickets cost $30 and pictures $7. Homecoming and Chi were not comparable. This large sum was di- vided into many areas. " Together " cost the Junior Class $550 and " Scraps " $500. Money was also used for tables and chairs, the rental of the hall, dinner at Post-Prom, tickets, invitations, refresh- ments, centerpieces, etc. Favors were also purchased; the girls received bud vases and the guys received mugs. The final expense went toward decorations. Much time was donated to the trans- formation of the cafeteria. Juniors worked Friday after school until 11 p.m. and on Saturday morning and afternoon. Streamers created a tunnel-effect pas- sage as the couples walked through the entrance into a starry nighttime scene. A mirrow ball, hung in the middle of the dance floor, reflected light on three di- mensional stars dancing from the ceiling. Foil covered two of the walls with sil- houettes placed on them creating the mood of " Just You ' N Me " . The elegance and dignity of Prom could be seen in the eyes of everyone as they strutted in their tuxedos and for- mals. Pre-Prom parties and even Pre- Post-Prom parties added to the atmo- sphere of the evening. Post-Prom was an extra, yet an essential part of Prom. It was a time to relax and mingle for some and a time for more dancing for others. The climax of the weekend was spoiled for most by the cold and rainy weather. Some changed their beach plans and headed for Chicago or the zoo. Others stuck it out. A formal was a special time; a time to throw away jeans and become elegant. It was a time of laughter and childlike emotions, of Christmas and holiday spirit, of closeness and sentiment. It was a time to be shared.

The wall is blank except for a small white sheet of paper. Wishing she had sung a little louder or danced a little faster, the girl scans the cast list looking for her name and hoping she will be able to success- fully conceal her disappointment if her name is not on that list. Anticipation, nervousness, waiting and hoping were all part of trying out for a team, a play, a musical, or cheerleading. Most students participated in at least one of the various tryouts held through- out the year. Getting ready to try out for cheerleading, Drill Team or an athletic team encompassed much training. " It was a lot of work trying to learn three drill team routines in four days. I really had to practice, " explained junior Debbie Brandt. For many athletic teams, trying out consisted of building up skills. However, a person was rarely cut from the team al- together. Instead, he was usually put on a junior varsity team. Pacing and excercise were common remedies to help fight pre-tryout ner- vousness. However, for the majority of students, the waiting after the tryouts was much worse. " I felt like I had done a really bad job at the tryouts for the fall play. It was hor- rible waiting to see if I had gotten a part. I spent the entire evening thinking of all the things I could have done differently, " explained junior Tim Finley. Seeing your name on the list, however, made all the waiting and nervousness worthwhile. Even if you didn ' t make it, the first time, you could always tryout for something else. 22 Tryouts ABOVE: In a pre-season practice, junior Mike Mil- lies displays his skills for the coach.

Sleep will not come until this bloody creature is put to eternal rest. His evil yet suave nature grasps and destroys the souls of the living beckoning them to the world of the undead. A mystical fog creeps in the room, strangling the air as this unearthly, immortal creature closes in on his prey; this creature " Count Dracula " . Chilling suspense gripped the au- dience as Dr. Seward ' s insane asylum came alive on Nov. 18 and 19. The play was sold out both nights with a total of approximately 2200 people attending. " Count Dracula offered a new aspect of suspense and special ef- fects that had not been in any previous theatrical productions here, " stated Di- rector Mrs. Renee Kouris. Disappearing people, mysterious flying bats, and bi- llowing fog created a supernatural fear. Count Dracula became more terrifying by a demonic green light and eerie organ music produced at his appearance. His ability to produce scarves and burning cigarettes from thin air made him almost realistic. Drama Club invested $1500 on royalties, scenery construction, and spe- cial effects. Under the direction of Assistant Drama Coach Mr. Phil Clark, English II teacher, and student director senior Marianne Lanman, the nine cast mem- bers combined devastating terror with a touch of humor. Practice began in early October and continued until the open- ing night. The action centered around the lovely, young mina, junior Colleen Walsh, a patient in Dr. Seward ' s, junior Joe Fow- ler, insane asylum. Mina became stricken with a strange illness brought on by the supernatural force of the count, junior Jim Szczepaniak. The unyielding terror was broken by the hilarious mischief of the schizophrenic Renfield, junior Tim Finley, and Dr. Seward ' s spinster sister, Sybil, senior Dalia Sidabras. Dr. Seward became worried about Mina ' s health and called in the Dutch specialist Heinrich Van Helsing, junior Thomas Bosch, and Mina ' s finance Jona- than Harker, junior Kevin Burke. They re- alized that Mina ' s illness was super- natural. It became a race against evil to save her from the world of the undead. As the sun rose slowly in a misty sky, it cast an unearthly glow into the forsaken crypt. There laid the lethal monster. The stake, driven in with hate, pierced his heart. At last, the town was free from terror. Fall Play 25 I t was a magical world; a world of castles and princesses, pumpkins and carriages, enchantment and dreams. It was a child ' s fantasy with all the magnificence of imagination. This was the fairytale world of " Cinderella. " With a touch of magic, the Children ' s Theater was presented on April 29 and 30. For the first time, a children ' s play was chosen for production instead of an adult play. " It seemed appropriate to do a chil- dren ' s play with the time element and conflicts at that time with other school activities on the stage, " explained Direc- tor Miss Diane Kubacki, English teacher. " I also feel the hardest audience to play to is children-it ' s a challenge. " Practices began four weeks prior to the play for both cast and crew. The sce- nery was detailed in animation in order to present a clear picture to the children. Disappearing fairy godmothers, pump- kins changing into royal carriages, and rags changing into riches made the magic of fairytales almost believable. " Cinderella, " written by William Glen- non, was the story of the mistreatment of a young cindermaid (sophomore Ja- nice Levy) by her stepmother (senior Blair Barkal) and her two step-sisters (sophomores Kathy Mills and Jill Barath). The cast played directly to the au- dience. " At the early shows they were all very animated. On Saturday night, how- ever, they ad-libbed to entertain the more mature, mostly adult audience, " stated junior Jim Szczepaniak, student director. As Jim summed it up, " Cinde- rella was a success simply because we pleased the audience that the play was aimed at— the children.

With a roll of the dice, " Guys and Dolls " came to life. Tourists, hoodlums, and bobbie-sox- ers set the atmosphere as the curtain opened on June 23, 1977. The 200 cast and crew members transformed the stage into an array of song and dance, under the direction of Mr. Richard Hol- mberg, music department head, and Mr. Gene Fort, U.S. History teacher. The story revolved around the hi- larious exploits of the runyonland char- acters in the 1950 ' s. The cast was led by alumi Linda Berthold as Sarah Brown, Scott Gruoner as Sky Masterson, Nancy Fine as Adelaide, and junior Tom Bosch as gambler Nathan Detroit. Directed by speech teacher Mrs. Helen Engstrom, the 18 dancers high- lighted the stage in such numbers as " The Crap Game Dance " , " A Bushel and a Peck " , and " Take Back Your Mink " . Because of insufficient funding and a lack of available assistants for technical crews, the staging of a musical produc- tion last year was not possible. The $7,298 needed to produce the musical for this year was raised through dona- tions, ticket sales, sponsors, and patrons. Beginning in April, practices for both cast and crew were held at every avail- able time. Much time was devoted to the memorization of lines and the con- struction of numerous sets in order to make up the 17 scenes. As the curtain came to a close on the fourth and final performance, the lights dimmed in a dark and musty sewer. In the distance there could be heard the si- lent rumbling of dice.

Just as the ending of seasons is in- evitable, so is the beginning of a new stage of life. Taking the step from high school years, 418 graduating seniors re- ceived their diplomas on June 4. Graduation day began early with Bac- calaureate service held in the auditorium at 2 p.m. Readings were given by each Senior class officer beginning with the Invocation by Class President Charles Weinberg, followed by readings from Vice-President Mike Koufos, Secretary- Treasurer Carrie Melind and Salutatorian Wendy Wagner. Reverend Howard Ness presented the address and Benediction. The program opened with the In- vocation by Student Senate President David Waxman. Addresses were given by Valedictorians Kim Duhon, Carrie Melind, and Dalia Sidabras. Adding mu- sic to the program, the Concert Choir performed " Anthem to Spring " and the " Long and Winding Road " . The Orches- tra played " Capriccio Italien " . The long awaited diplomas were then presented by Superintendent Dr. Wall- ace Underwood and the school trustees. With the flipping of the tassel from the left to the right, the ceremony came to a close. The seniors filed out of the field- house amidst tears, shouts, hugs and cheers, each expressing their own feel- ings. Although some were anxious, oth- ers apprehensive, and most a little of both, no one knew what the future would hold.

I didn ' t think anyone else would fit in this house! It ' s hard to believe kids have parties as big as this every weekend. It seems like the whole high school is here! I just hope nobody notices me and I can sit here in the corner and watch. Hey! Who is this guy staggering over towards me? If I ' m lucky he won ' t see me. Watch ooouuuttt! He didn ' t see me all right, and he spilled his drink all over me! Now what am I gonna do? If my parents ever find out what really hap- pens at parties, I ' ll be in a lot of trouble! I can ' t stay here while I ' m soaking wet! If only I could find the door through this mob of people! I don ' t really want to leave, though. Every Monday morning everyone always gossips about all the wild things that happened at so-and-so ' s party. I hate it when I just sit there without knowing what they ' re talking about. This time, I ' m going to stay, wet clothes and all, to find out what parties are all about! This music sounds great, but I don ' t know how to dance to disco. I feel like such a wall-flower sitting here in my cor- ner, but I just can ' t stand up and start doing the Twist— I ' ll really look out of it! Many people aren ' t dancing, though. They ' re just standing around talking. I suppose I could join them, but I ' m just too shy to come out and talk to people. Anyway, I hardly know these kids away from school. They sure act different when they ' re partying! I wonder why that girl over there is crying? Everyone else is having such a great time. I though she might be sad because we lost the game tonight, but I overheard someone say she just broke up with her boyfriend. Too bad she has to be in " public " tonight at this party. Ev- eryone will be talking behind her back! I can ' t believe it ' s so late already! I better hurry and find a ride home, be- cause my parents will have a fit if I come in late. " Hey! Don ' t go! Sit down and talk. " Oh oh! I ' m getting nervous already! What should I talk to him about? " How come I ' ve never seen you at any parties before? " " Well, I ' m kinda shy and . . . and . . . this is the first party I ever came to. " " No kidding? I bet I ' m shyer than you! Why don ' t we just forget it and ... uh . . . get up and dance? " Well, I ' ve got to stop being shy some- time, " OK! " " Do you need a ride home afterwards?

Local astronomers said this was the year of the Mustang. Horse or Mustang, it was a year of many fads. Some had been here before and others will never be here again. Clothes were just one fad which set this year apart from others. Cowl neck sweaters, vests, skirts, and scarves were necessary to be in fashion. Stick pins and earrings added a touch of class, com- pleting the outfit. Footwear took a giant plunge. Socks could be found anywhere from the lower ankle to the top of the thigh. Clogs and boots set off the exotic colors and patterns of the socks. Combs, barrettes, and initials i n glasses added a personal touch to any outfit.

Tuesday was a big night for television as it housed the three top shows: " Happy Days " , " Laverne and Shirley " , and " Three ' s Company " . Outside activities ranged from riding skateboards to playing with slime. A skateboard club was formed and ramps and berms were built. Slime, a jellylike, green substance which oozes like mud, became popular around the area. Fads are a very important part of each year. They ' re a distinguishing factor which sets each year apart from the next. (continued from page 34) Popular movies also contributed to the fashion scene. After the release of " Star Wars " , Darth Vader and Artoo- Detoo could be seen on shirts, posters, and calendars everywhere. Even me- chanical robots came into being. Other popular mo vies were " Close Encounters of the Third Kind " and " Oh Cod " . Mov- ies also had an effect on songs as " You Light Up My Life " , and the " Star Wars ' Theme " became big hits.

Sleepily, kids trudge te schecl As I heard my belligerent alarm clock blaring on the first morning of summer school, June 13, I thought to myself, " What a drag! " Getting up at 7 a.m. for eight long weeks of summer school was just not my idea of fun. Oh well, there were a few who had it even worse than I. Instead of getting up for the 8 to 9:55 class or the 10:05 to noon class, they ac- tually had to be out of bed at 6 a.m. to be at the school for the 7 to 8 a.m. class on alternate days to go driving. Imagine, at that hour in the morning, I couldn ' t even roll over and play dead, much less learn to drive a car! Still, I really was excited about getting my license and even about taking physi- cal education, since it meant not having to take it during the year. I really didn ' t have too many other plans for the sum- mer, so, along with 712 other students and 28 teachers, I went to summer school. Of course, physical education and drivers education weren ' t the only classes offered. Students could also take Typing I, Health and Safety, Devel- opmental Reading and the make-up classes of Biology, English, math and so- cial studies. No, it didn ' t quite compare with lying on a sunny beach, but some things were really surprising, such as the way most of the students dressed. It was more informal than the regular school year, with some of the students wearing shorts, halters and sloppy T-shirts. Also, some students took co-ed physical edu- cation. Pretty surprising! Now, as I heard my alarm clock blar- ing on the last day of summer school, Aug. 5, I thought that it had turned out to be quite fun, and getting up at 7 a.m. to go to school during the normal school year was certainly going to be a drag! 40 Summer School LEFT: Still half-asleep, sophomore Jeff Scholl listens to a Health and Safety lecture, while sophomore Carla Stockhouse catches up on her sleep.

I ' m really gonna have to hurry if I want to catch up with Phyllis, since the only time I see her is between third and fourth hour, come to think of it, seven minutes isn ' t much time to ask her out for a first date . . . Brrring! We ' ll, bell, it ' s about time! I ' ll just scoop up all my books and dash for the door. Now I have to go to my locker and then the guidance office for a schedule change request before I can head to the South Building. Oh no! Why do all the freshman girls gather in front of MY locker to gossip? " Excuse me please. Could you move your little group down to number 223 so I can get in here? " Well they seem to be moving a little slowly today so I ' ll just slip in be- hind them and grab my History book. Now here comes a big decision. Do I risk walking outside through all that snow and ice or just go through the fieldhouse? Hmm. I better just stay in- side since I don ' t feel like spending the next 15 minutes defrosting! Oh great! I really made the wrong choice! The last gym class always leaves this stupid volleyball net strung across the fieldhouse when I ' m in a big hurry! I either have to crawl under it or attempt to lift it over my head while holding an armful of heavy books! Usually I ' m not so lucky. I just feel something strangling me all of a sudden and then I know the net ' s up! Is that Phyllis ahead? Yes! Nobody has a pink dress like that one! Now I ' ll really have to pour on the speed! Hey! What ' s happening to me? With all these lockers slamming and all the kids pushing and shoving from every di- rection I ' m beginning to feel very dizzy! Oh no! Some enormous person is head- ing straight for me, and I ' m trapped! Whoaa! There go my books. " Hey you! Get back here and help me pick these up! " Hmm. I have this funny feeling he ' s not coming back. Well I ' m off again. I think I ' ll have to postpone asking Phyllis until tomorrow since the first bell already rang and that leaves me about 30 seconds to get to class. I ' ll never understand how some of these kids can stand outside their class- room and talk the whole seven minutes. Brrring! Whew! Just as I ' m sitting down. Wait a minute! That doesn ' t look like my History teacher and who are all these weird looking kids? What? This is sophomore English? Looks like I ' m gonna be late after all! 7 minutes 43 Hobbies Hobbies, bowling, chess extend into useful interests " Hey, this guy is pretty good, he can walk the dog, and wow, look at him do the moon walk! He can even do a hand- stand! What kind of place is this any- way? All I wanted to do was take a walk in the park and I find myself surrounded by all these people whizzing by me on some kind of mini surfboard with wheels! " Like most people, everyone seems to have a hobby of some sort. Hobbies can vary anywhere between skateboarding to junk collecting. Painting, rugmaking, playing an instrument, dancing or just reading can be profitable hobbies that can extend into future accomplishments or can be another way to pass the time. The 28 members of the Bowling Club found a way to pass the time by spend- ing every Monday at Munster Lanes Bowling Alley. Totalling averages, handi- caps and pins for the seven teams was the job of the Bowling Club sponsor, Mr. Jeffery Graves and club officers. Bowling Club offered students the chance to compete with other members on four- member teams. For $2.25, which went towards 3 games and team trophies at the end of the year, students had the chance to bet- ter their skills and have fun at the same time. Another way of having fun and putting your brain to work at the same time is the challenging game of chess. Check and checkmate were often heard by the 11 members of the Chess Club. Sponsored by Mr. Bryan Young, biology teacher, Chess Club was opened to anyone who was interested in playing. The members sold Bic pens, five for $1, to raise money for fees and trans- portation on trips to other schools. To each meet they brought five boards and played a Round Robin, where all the members played each other in an elimination game which de- cided the top players. All in all, being able to participate in Bowling and Chess Club and having a hobby gave students a chance to wind down from their everyday school life. ▼ s y WjjI i .

Since Stu- dents do not have any control over the climate, some made the best possible use of the weather as it was. Diving to the bottom of a clear blue lake in Wisconsin, the 10 members of the Scuba Club and sponsor Mr. Brian Young, Biology teacher, cooled them- selves off from the warm temperatures of fall and spring. To learn more about their hobby, the Lake County Sheriff ' s department gave them a lecture. With hopes of finding car and ship wrecks, the club members took another dive in the spring. While the cold weather stopped the Scuba Club for awhile, it did not stop the 28 members of the Outdoors Club from taking a " freeze out, " an outing where each person spent the night in a sleeping bag in the snow. The Outdoors Club along with spon- sor Mr. Arthur Haverstock, biology teacher, and president Kelly Zatorski, ju- nior, went on a campout and rock climbing trip to Devils Lake, Wl, in the fall. During the winter, they had a tobog- ganing party. A canoe trip along Indiana rivers and another campout brought the year to an end. Students not involved in clubs could still take advantage of the warm weather by riding a bike, playing tennis, or even going for a walk. When the weather be- came colder, others used the snow to ski, snow mobile, and have an occa- sional snowball fight. Whether through organizations or on their own, students made due with the weather and took the best advantage of it that they could.

I was so caught up in the world of micro-organisms and polyno- mials that I almost lost touch with the real world. Only with the help of my trusty calculator did I make it through all the theorems and formulas. Actually, it all began four years ago. Like most other freshmen, I took Biol- ogy. The unit on mitosis and the cheek cell lab really caught my interest, but, of course, I didn ' t stop there. Passing up the easier math courses like Basic Math, General Math I and II, and Algebra I, I started right in with Geome- try. Those proofs were a challenge, but by then I was already on the verge of be- coming hooked for life. As I progressed on to Algebra II and Chemistry, my calculator and I became better friends. Although I could only use a slide rule in Chemistry and scratch pa- per for my mathematical thoughts, my calculator and I worked together dili- gently at home. Despite the fact that it didn ' t require a calculator, Health and Safety was still one of my favorite classes. Learning arti- ficial respiration on Annie, the resuscita- tion dummy, and studying the skeleton were really thrilling. I couldn ' t wait to be promoted to Col- lege Algebra and Trigonometry. I really used my calculator, by now my best friend, for those formulas with radians and degrees. We even got to use our calculators during a test in Physics. What a break! Oh, and how could I forget op- erating on those little white mice in Ad- vanced Biology? What an experience! Finally, I was right on my way to be- coming a math and science genius with Calculus. Finding derivatives was one of the most exciting things in life. I spent every spare minute working with my cal- culator. I never realized how dependent I was becoming on it. But suddenly it all ended. I was sitting in the classroom during a big test, work- ing steadily, when the little green num- bers began to dim and fade away! My best friend was betraying me! His bat- teries failed and so did I. Math, Science 51 " Oh, wow! I ' m so embarrassed! Can you believe I did that? " " Hey, don ' t worry about it. Everybody makes mistakes at some time. " " Yea, but nobody is as dumb as me. " " Are you kidding? Don ' t you remem- ber the time . . . ... It had just snowed and the side- walks were really slippery. She was trying to impress the guy walking with her. She was using her best perfume and her Ultra-Brite smile. Suddenly, WHOOSH!, BOOM!, she ' s flat on the sidewalk. It didn ' t matter though. They both just laughed and he asked her out. " " That ' s right. Maybe it ' s okay to make mistakes. I remember that little freshman who opened his locker and was knocked out by an avalanche of books. He lived through the rest of school. " " Yea, but my favorite one was the girl who took a wrong turn and found her- self locked in the courtyard by the south office. " " That was pretty funny. By the time someone spotted her, she ' d missed lunch. " " I ' ll never forget freshman year when I walked into the guys ' bathroom by mis- take. You wouldn ' t believe that poor kid ' s expression! " " You know, even teachers make mis- takes. Once, my Spanish teacher went to pull down the movie screen and pulled it right off the wall! Then suddenly first semester ended and I didn ' t realize it. I waltzed into my first hour class and angrily accused someone of taking my seat. When I fi- nally looked up and saw all those blank faces, it hit me. I had a different sched- ule this semester. " " Wasn ' t it you who had a test in Al- gebra and when you got to your next class, you found that you ' d put it into your folder? What a mistake! But at least your teacher understood. " " See, even though they range from wearing unmatched earrings to walking into the wrong locker room, everyone does make mistakes sometimes!

Wow! Was that a pain trying to get those long noodles in that short pan! Cooking is easy for girls. It seems to be inborn with them. But what about me? I ' m just a beginner and what a klutz! I must say, though, that I am doing better because I only dropped two cartons of eggs when we were making quick breads, let a pan of spaghetti sauce boil over onto the stove, used salt instead of sugar to make cookies, and only caught the stove on fire once! I think I enjoyed the eating part the best. It was then that my clumsiness was at its peak. Once when we were eating some of the for- eign food, I tripped, and my chop suey went all over the girl I had a crush on! It ' s a good thing I didn ' t choose to take Clothing I and II; I probably would have sewn myself to my garmet. And in advanced clothing and tailoring, I might have sewn my fingers to my raincoat with all that hand sewing. In Interpersonal Relations, I discov- ered more about children, my family, personalities, environment and other in- teresting topics dealing with people. It was one of the better classes as far as coordination goes. The reports were easier than sewing or cooking, except for the time I knocked over the projector we used to show filmstrips.

(continued from page 55) After stumbling through my Home Economics courses, I thought maybe I could do better in Industrial Arts. Why not? Guys are supposed to be good at that sort of stuff, right? So I tried all of them, with the exception of Metals and Electronics. (I was afraid I might melt myself or send 200 volts through my body; then how would I look all with- ered and charred?) When I heard about the neat things they do, though, I wished I had taken them. Do you know that in Electronics you get to make four differ- ent kinds of motors, work with com- puter circuits, and trouble shoot for ra- dios? And in Metals you get to bend metal into many projects, like spotlight reflectors and weightlifting benches. Contrary to my belief that boys are born craftsmen, Mechanics, Drafting and Wood shop again proved me to be one uncoordinated individual! It was amaz- ing to me that all those lines drawn from the use of a T-square, an angle or a com- pass could result in plans for a home or office building or some other structure. Funny how mine always seemed to re- semble the leaning Tower of Pisa! Fearful of losing a finger, caution became my ut- most concern in Woodshop. I made it through the making of a small stool and a backscratcher, but it was on my wood- sculpture that I managed to break two drill bits in ten minutes. Power Mechanics was my last and fi- nal hope for improving my coordination, but again I was wrong. I re ally had a good time working on those cars, too. I just hope the owner of the silver Trans Am isn ' t angry when he finds out about the three bolts I forgot to put back in, not to mention the wrench I forgot to re- move after replacing the spark plugs! Shop, Home Ec 57 Oh, my aching keys! Click Clack, Clickety Clack. These kids keep pounding on my keys. It ' s espe- cially hard in Typing I when they are just beginning to type and keep hunting for the right keys. When they find the keys, they absolutely crush them into me. Have they no mercy? Near the end of the semester they had to type a term pa- per, and by then they hopefully knew where all the keys were. In Typing II and III, it got better, these kids breezed along at 40, 50 and even 60 words a minute. Plus (how could I forget?) they had to do some wonderful timed writings. Some of the kids even tried to get a few extra words in by continuing to type af- ter the teacher had called time— the little devils. The more advanced students in Typing IV got the chance to type work- sheets and assignments for various teachers. In the next room, I knew the short- hand students were busily taking down their dictation, trying desperately to catch every word the teacher was saying. In the beginning of the year, I could see them struggling with the new and different syllables and sounds they had to master writing. In accounting class, students were able to work on ledgers and worksheets. I could see them analyzing business transactions. They even got to play ster- eotronics— a game where you pretend you are the accountant and you are working for a real company. It really sounded fun. Learning the general aspects of busi- ness, including how to write checks, kept freshmen and sophomores busy in General Business class. Click Clack. Business Machines taught students how to use various machines like my girl friend the adding machine. By taking Consumer Education, fresh- men and sophomores learned how not to get cheated when buying merchan- dise and also how to buy insurance and a used car. Boy, oh boy, getting and keeping a job is tough, but Sales and Marketing taught juniors and seniors this and the additional information of how to arrange and make store displays. Clickity Clack.

OE 4, OE On job training promotes skills As you enter the office for the first time, you hope that you can remember all the typing, shorthand, and sales- manship skills you ' ve learned in the last two years. Getting a job through Dis- tributive Education and the Office Edu- cation Association proved to be a big help to students planning a business career. By taking Salesmanship and Marketing as a junior, students prepared for voca- tions in marketing, merchandising, and management. This provided a good background for senior DE, in which the students received on-the-job training in the afternoon. Eighteen students took advantage of this half day classroom work and half day job training. Students received their grades on their employers ' evaluation of how well they did their jobs, as well as on class work. Under Mr. Leo Sherman ' s leadership, DE members competed with other re- gional schools in district competition held at Valparaiso. Here, they tested their knowledge and skill in 15 marketing areas such as: window display, math, and human relations. Twenty-three stu- dents placing at regionals entered the state competition at French Lick. After placing fifth at state in Food Marketing, Junior Kevin Hassellof qualified for Na- tionals and traveled to Washington, D.C. Bake sales every Friday and a Sweetest Day carnation sale raised money for field trips, the senior DE banquet, and Christmas gifts for orphanages. While DE members were busy per- fecting their business skills, OEA mem- bers were developing an awareness of various office occupations. The purpose of OEA was to " develop leadership, to develop the spirit of competition and to give students a chance to meet different people from other schools and to help others through civic and service projects, " said OEA sponsor, Miss Janice Kostelnik. With the help of OEA president Deb- bie Rice, the 34 junior and the 15 senior OEA members raised over $1000 by sell- ing coloring books, having candy and bake sales, sponsoring a dance, and hav- ing a car wash. The money was used for attending regional and state confer- ences, sponsoring a banquet, and hos- ting several social events including a Christmas brunch for employers.

Speech and Debate Practice f skill lead to State Title When thinking of belonging to an or- ganization many people usually think of doing nothing more than going to meet- ings and baking for bake sales. However, being a member of Speech and Debate consisted of much more than this. The members practiced long hours to strengthen skills to develop a talent. However, all the hard work paid off. For the first time since 1972, the Speech Team came home with the first place State Championship trophy. Of the 12 members who attended the State meet in Indianapolis, seven placed. Helping the team to a victory, senior Charles Weinberg took first place in the Im- promptu Competition. Junior Debbie Yalowitz received a second place in Girls ' Extemporaneous speech. In the Dramatic Duo competition, sophomore Roxanne Paulson and junior Kevin Burke took fourth place.

By taking first at Debate Districts, the Debate team of Waxman and Charles Weinberg qualified for the National meet at Northwestern University in June. The team of Levy and sophomore Sue Goldenberg placed third at Districts. Waxman ' s and Charles Weinberg ' s vic- tory at Butler and a fifth place at North- western, where they competed with de- baters from 37 other states were some major accomplishments of the season. The team of junior Kurt Kappes and se- nior Steve Silver placed fifth at State and Waxman and Charles Weinberg placed ninth. James Weinberg also qualified for Nationals through the District Congress by winning Senate. To raise money, the Speech and De- bate team held its ' annual Homecoming Chicken Barbeque. The tickets cost $3 for adults and $1.75 for children. The season ended with a banquet in May and a picnic at Mrs. Engstroms ' farm. 62 Speech and Debate LEFT: To help out during the Homecoming Chicken Barbecue, freshman Mitch Caffigan pumps the barbecue sauce onto the chicken.

Go to the head of the classfroom) In the beginning there was kindergar- ten. Remember all the puzzles, paints, games and snacks? Your teacher was like a second mother to you. She was always listening to what you had to say and was willing to help you anytime you asked. She was your friend. But now, 13 long and trying years later, you are starting to see teaching in a dif- ferent perspective. Now, you are in front of the class instructing those always questioning and mischief-making little kindergarteners. This year 28 seniors found themselves in this situation. Helping students in a class called Cadet Teaching is available to any senior who enjoys working with and is interested in grammar school chil- dren. Seniors make their way to one of five elementary schools in the Munster area, Monday through Friday, second and third hour for 12 weeks. Grading papers, putting up bulletin boards and reading stories are just a few of the things cadet teachers did. Another worthwhile activity which also requires grading papers and helping students is teacher assistants. Assistants receive grades on perfor- mance and have responsibilities, just like they were in a “normal " class. A test over the Dewey Decimal sys- tem given by head librarian, Mrs. Cheryl Joseph was just one of the requirements for library assistants. After this, they be- gan positioning and filing books and magazines, issuing books, and cutting newspaper articles out for the vertical file. In the guidance, North and South of- fices, the students became non-paid secretaries. Filing schedules, typing and addressing envelopes and running er- rands were practiced. In the North office an aide was often heard saying, " Good day, Munster High School, may I help you? " Chemistry, biology and physics aides spent their time grading labs, taking at- tendance, posting grades and occasion- ally cleaning test tubes. English, art, social studies and foreign language assistants graded papers and basically helped the teacher with what- ever needed to be done. Times have changed since kindergar- ten as teacher aides and cadet teachers found the other side of the desk. LEFT: Smiles appear as senior Tricia Eggers grades a perfect workbook.

Paragon was not all parties and fun. It was a lot of work. Every day I saw 25 staff members and five photographers concentrate on pictures, copy, captions, and layouts. They worked together to produce the best yearbook they were capable of making. Of course the work was a little easier with the help of the advisor Mrs. Nancy Hastings, journalism teacher, and co-editors-in-chief seniors Pam Kiser and Dalia Sidabras. Planning the year- book began in August when five senior staffers spent a week at a journalism workshop at Ball State University. There they learned new techniques and meth- ods of yearbooking. Paragon did have their share of fun. They had birthday parties and a special Christmas party. The Christmas party, held at junior Michelle Kurteff ' s house, was for both the Paragon and Crier Staff. Sometimes I really didn ' t know about that class. They did some pretty weird things. But you could always count on something interesting happening during that class. When November rolled around, " Have You Got Yours? " was a popular question throughout the school. Because of strange announcements and posters posted throughout the school, the Paragon staff initiated a campaign to sell the 78 yearbook which centered around the theme of ' Make It or Break It. ' A total of 1250 books were sold. To also help finance the yearbook, ads were sold to local businesses and patrons contributed with monetary donations. Tick . . . tick . . . tick . . .

Friday morning, the Crier was ready for the market. The Crier was a completely self-sup- porting newspaper that made its funds through the sale of Valentine ' s Day Car- nations, Thanksgiving Thankfuls, Christ- mas Wishes and advertising. The Crier instituted a new organiza- tion of their stories in an attempt to gear the paper more towards student interest. For example, the front page carried more in-depth features as well as the top news stories. The second page gave Crier members a chance to voice their opinions, and many editorials appeared during the year. Other articles appeared featuring a poll on favorite TV programs, college planning information, and other stories to interest the student. These new ideas were brought back from a Summer workshop at Ball State University at- tended by three staff members. The staff, with the help of Mrs. Nancy Hastings, Journalism teacher, put out a paper every other Friday. The 1977 Crier received top honors from the National Scholastic Press Asso- ciation by receiving the All American Newspaper Award for that year. " Anyone for a Crier? " " Here, don ' t forget about me, I have a subscription this semester! " " And I want one too " " Wait a minute, There is enough for everyone here. " " During second hour, the Crier staff will sell the paper for 25 cents, " noted the authoritative voice on the PA system. In a few minutes, a pair of staffers would be knocking on the door, saying, " Criers! " and they would be distributed to those with subscriptions and those brandishing a shiny quarter. But the unsuspecting students who enjoy the Crier twice monthly did not realize that there was more to the paper than what was written on its pages. What the reader did not see was the be- hind-the-scenes action that helped to create the Crier. After an issue had been distributed, the work was far from over, for the staff had to wait for reader re- sponse which was evaluated and used as a guideline to improvement. Before any of this was done, however, the decision as to what the content of the paper would be had to be made solely by the 30 members of the staff. The Editorial Board, consisting of all page editors, advertising, and business managers, met once a week to deter- mine which issues would be covered. Assignments were made and the report- ers were sent out for interviews. Scrambled notes became rough drafts for the approval of the Editor in-chief, senior Mark Kruzan. Then, once ap- proved, the drafts were transformed into the final stories. A draft model of the entire paper was drawn up and the stories were sent to 1 News Bureau, Pegasus Typist’s cramp typities hectic deadline day Feeling like your fingers are going to fall off your hand, you slowly but per- fectly type another page. The phone rings. You must answer it because it could be important for the newspaper. You must get these stories out to the lo- cal newspaper. If you think these are the thoughts of a news or magazine writer, you are close. These are the thoughts of the members of News Bureau and Pegasus. Contacting students for pictures and opinion youth pages and writing a weekly column for the HAMMOND TIMES was the job of the two staff members. Led by News Bureau Chief Michele Kurteff, five students were re- sponsible for getting school publication about events and students honors out to the community. To do this they sent news releases and pictures to the Mun- ster Sun Journal, Hammond Times, Calu- met Press and Post Tribune. Reading poems and essays were some of the main objectives of the seven members of Pegasus. The members col- lected and looked through several piles of essays, poems and works of art in hopes of picking the best pieces for publication in the annual literary maga- zine. Any interested students could sub- mit up to five of their own literary works or their own pieces of artwork. A committee of teachers then judged the entries and decided which were to be printed in the annual literary magazine. Being on News Bureau or Pegasus can be frustrating and rewarding. All in all, the staffs worked hard together and came up with as successful a publication as they could. 70 News Bureau, Pegasus It FAR LEFT: After making a small mistake, junior Lori Krumrie corrects her paper for the HAM- MOND TIMES publication.

The symptoms are occasionally severe but hardly ever fatal. Such char- acteristics as profound intelligence, overwhelming dedication and out- standing leadership are usually the first signs to appear. The condition is com- monly known as " Involvement. " The treatment is reward, recognition and honor, ordinarily found during member- ship in National Honor Society, National Merit Semi-Finalists, Quill and Scroll and the Indiana University Honors Program in Foreign Languages. The honor students were chosen on the basis of maintaining a 3.2 grade point average, excelling in service and showing good character and leadership. The 48 members were inducted into NHS, a na- tionwide organization, at a ceremony in the spring of the previous year. With the assistance of co-sponsors Mrs. Marlis Tippet, German teacher and Miss An- nette Wisniewski, math teacher, NHS sponsored bake sales and a dance. Prof- its were used for membership cards, cer- tificates, gold seals for graduation caps and a $400 scholarship for one of the members. Community services, such as making Christmas candy baskets were treat- ments not only for NHS members, but also for the patients at Munster Med-ln who received them. Some members also spent numerous hours tutoring fellow students in their difficult studies. Showing overwhelming dedication was a prominent characteristic seen in the 13 Quill and Scroll members. A 2.7 grade point average and a major contri- bution in Crier, News Bureau, Paragon or Pegasus were required for member- ship. Sponsored by Mrs. Nancy Hastings, journalism teacher, the members held a journalism banquet in the spring. Patients with extremely severe in- telligence had the chance to become National Merit Semi-Finalists. Taking the PSAT test at the end of their junior year, seniors Kathy Collins, David Drajeske, Dalia Sidabras and John Vitkus achieved scores in the top one per cent of the United States. Taking a test at IU was required to qualify for the Indiana University Ger- man Program. Based on a German test, application form and an interview, se- niors Peter Fox, Denise Metz, Dalia Si- dabras, John Vitkus and Charles Wein- berg spent 7 weeks in Krefeld, West Germany. In the long run, most " patients " felt the participation was worth the time and effort for the recog- nition they received.

" " Could I have a roll call. " " Sue P " " Here. " " Jayne A . . . " " Here. " " Bob, Bob, Robert! Would the secre- tary please read the minutes. " So begins another Student Govern- ment meeting. With the help of sponsor Mr. Hal Coppage, Government teacher, the Student Government, formerly called Student Senate, was revised from previous years. A Pride Committee and a Class Executive Council for each grade were formed. The 49 members of the PC promoted and formed school functions such as the Homecoming Festivities. The CEC ' s 48 members promoted and formed class activities. The new Student Government was a trial to see if student representation would still exist. President David Wax- man stated, " Running the Student Gov- ernment has certainly been a challenge, but I think it has worked as well as could be expected. " The PC ' s main functions were organ- izing Homecoming, taking care of stu- dent exchanges, arranging assemblies, and running class elections. They were also responsible for supervising school fund-raising projects and, with the ad- ministration, they approved school dances. Each CEC was in charge of their re- spective classes ' functions. For Home- coming the Freshmen served and deco- rated for the dance while each other class built a float. The Junior class planned Prom and the Senior class planned the Senior trip and banquet. The students voiced their opinion with each other in Student Government, but in the Parent Teacher Student Associa- tion the students discussed their views with parents and faculty. The PTSA had 100 student members and held monthly meetings in which plans were discussed and problems were confronted. In October PTSA held a rummage sale to raise money for a bi-monthly news- letter which was sent to parents of high school students, informing them of the happenings in the school. Money was also made from the memberships sold during registration before school began and at the annual Open House in fall. These funds were used for the teachers ' luncheon. PTSA also made a donation to the school. Various professions were represented at " Careers Night " held in spring. It gave students an opportunity to talk to people in a wide selection of careers. " Now that our business is finished, I will adjourn the 4th meeting of the Stu- dent Government. " As the meeting came to a close, fresh thoughts, ideas, and programs traveled through the members ' heads. AFS, French Club Mi perro es azol, it’s Greek to me! " Excusz-moi, pouvez-vous me dine ou est la bien pres classe d ' anglais? " A conversation between a non-English speaking person and a person speaking only English can be very awkward. The French Club and the American Field Service try to bridge that gap by bringing the uniqueness of a foreign country to American students. The French Club was open to all stu- dents interested in France, and Europe in general. Contrary to popular belief, you didn ' t have to take French in order to be a member. Mrs. Alyce Wackowski, French teacher, along with French Club President senior Sioux Scott, helped the students raise money for various activi- ties. Fund raising projects included bake sales, candy sales and selling candy filled Christmas stockings. The money was used for trips to French restaurants, mu- seums and cheese parties. The American Field Service (AFS) was also active in bringing a bit of foreign charm to students. AFS is an organiza- tion that sends students, who are eager to experience new surroundings, to for- eign countries to live with a family for an entire year. AFS, with the help of the Munster Rotary Club, sponsored two students, Kari Antinnen from Finland and Elizabeth Irigoyen from Ecuador. American students also can take advan- tage of going to exotic places and leav- ing the ho-hum of normal everyday life behind. For a cost of between $1100 and $1500, they have a choice of traveling for a semester or a year, domestically or abroad. But sending people to strange countries was not the only concern of AFS. Sponsored by Mrs. Lynne Fred- riksen, Spanish teacher, the chapter raised money for trips and sponsored some annual events, such as Inter- national night, where foreign students from local areas gathered. Students dis- cussed what was done around their countries at Christmas. Dancing and folk singing was also featured. The AFS weekend was another annual event. For- eign students, along with an American “brother " or “sister " spent the weekend with a student. Going to Chicago, parties and finishing the weekend off with a brunch were among the highlights. So, if a student starts saying things to you and you have absolutely no idea what he ' s saying, it ' s probably just an ex- change student asking for directions to the nearest English room. Just turn him around and point the right way. LVuPr - . rw 1 1 ’.aJ ABOVE: FRENCH CLUB.

Outbreak of American Revolution A. Causes 1. Stamp Act 2. Taxation without representation 3. The colonists took the " Nestea Plunge " 4. George Washington heard about the British conspiracy to steal his false teeth B. Memorable Moments of the war 1. The shot heard around the world 2. One of the minute men missed his bus and was a hour late Cbeaskj Dearest Ida, Hi! How ' s life? In case you can ' t tell, I am bored. I just thought I ' d write you a note instead of listening about Paul Revere and his horse. (I wonder if it was related to Mr. Ed.) Actually, the American Revolution just isn ' t my favorite subject, but then neither is English . . . science ... or math — Of course, I sometimes add in my own bizarre facts and then it isn ' t so bad. Oh well, it seems that so many of my classes are nothing but lectures. Lectures. Lectures. LECTURES!!! Maybe it would be more interesting if Mrs. Beasley covered her whole 250 pound body with pink balloons and did a hula dance. But then everyone would probably mistake her for the Goodyear blimp. Anyway— classes just keep getting ' jUv o oi-T. bigger-so all that teachers can really do is stand up in front of the room and talk. I wonder if anyone listens. It sure doesn ' t look like anyone in my row is paying attention. Oh well, there ' s Albert speedily whizzing his RRRRRolling Wrrrrriter across his notebook page. He always jots down every single word Mrs. Beasley spits out at us. Gosh darn, he bugs me— especially since he ends up always getting " A + ' " s on his exams. How I ' d just rather sit here in my corner and doodle. Doodle. Doodle. Doodle. After all, once I copy down the notes from the blackboard, why should I listen?— Oh, come to think of it, though, I didn ' t do so well on that last test. How was I supposed to know that Columbus landed in Latin America and not in Columbus, Ohio. Maybe my big problem was that I couldn ' t decipher my notes from my doodles, my little squiggly lines and my cute little drawings. Hey, that sketch I did of Mr. Dinkle was really a masterpiece. He even complimented me on it. Except that he said that the horns on the back of his head were too long. Anyway, just one more wart to the right of her moustache and I ' ll be done with the portrait of Mrs. Beasley that I ' m working on. Maybe I should take art. No, ma ybe I should take more notes. Oh, but how boring. I just keep getting distracted. But think of how beautiful this page will be by the time this lecture is over. If Mrs. Beasley ever stops blabbering. Uh oh, I think she ' s moving in my general direction. Somehow I bet she wouldn ' t appreciate this drawing I did of her. I just don ' t think she ' s as understanding as Mr. Dinkle. Well, Ida, see you. Love, Lucille 4 % V V 9 ( RIGHT: As a part of her Jacksonian Era project for U.S. History, junior Josie Ray- mundo finishes her poster.

Oral and written re- ports! Yeck! I couldn ' t believe it. I just couldn ' t escape them. Wherever I went, they went, too. Even in my social studies, English and foreign language classes they were always there. When I read my oral reports to the class, I could feel my teeth chatter. I know in these classes your fun group discussions are supposed to be a group effort, but for me it even took courage to raise my hand, much less to go up in front of the class and face the prying eyes of my peers. In the beginning years of the foreign languages — Spanish, German and French— it seemed all I did was study grammar and dialogues and then recite them aloud. Imagine, I could barely manage to speak plain old English in front of the class, but trying to speak a whole dialogue in some incomprehen- sible language— well, that was too much for me. Yet somehow I always managed to get it done, and in between memo- rizing all those irregular verbs and work- ing diligently in those workbooks, I really got to do some exciting things. Like in Spanish we made pinatas and in French we had pastry parties. The culture unit on German cities was really interesting. In French, I had the chance to see the movie, " The Little Prince " in Valparaiso. Freshman English continued with the report ideas and began with eight-sen- tence paragraphs and the reading of Caine Mutiny, Inherit the Wind and Romeo and Juliet. I even had to do a 3-5 minute oral report on my opinion. As a sophomore, I continued in English, by reading Lord of the Flies and Camelot. We even acted out a couple of scenes from Camelot. And near the end of the year I learned how to do five- paragraph themes. What a fun experi- ence that was! Uh-oh! In Junior English, I had to do a term paper, but before that I did read The Scarlet Letter and Macbeth and did the " Search for Identity " and the " Fron- tiers " units.

I also had to have another semester of English. I could take Journalism, Modern Literature, World Literature, English Lit- erature, Dramatics, Developmental Reading, Speech or Debate. In Speech class I was faced with frus- tration after frustration. There were just so many oral discussions, but there were also some fun demonstration speeches and even radio speeches. I also had to debate with a partner, and together we had to compete against another team. At least I had someone to help me out so I didn ' t sound like a total fool. Underclassmen could take In- troduction to Social Science or World History, which served as stepping stones to so-called " bigger and better things. " While taking Psychology, I learned to understand human behavior, and I even got to go on a field trip to Beatty Memo- rial Hospital. I also had to write several reports, too. U.S. History, which was required, did deal with the Europeans ' discovery and exploration of the United States to more recent times. Luckily, I had the option of doing a written or oral report on the Jacksonian Era, but during the second semester, it was inevitable. I had to do an oral report. Well, just because I had pulled out all my hair and had to wear a wig to class, that didn ' t mean I was nervous. To learn how the country is run, Gov- ernment students participated in Hop- cal, a simulation game that resembled Congress. That was like an oral report every day. By taking Sociology or Eco- nomics, seniors fulfilled their last re- quired credit in social studies. In Eco- nomics, I learned about supply and demand. In Sociology, seniors learned about family, education, and religion. I still think reports are a pain, but by taking foreign language, English and so- cial studies classes, I learned to get in- volved in discussions which were nerve- wracking at first but eventually became enjoyable. Croup Involvement 83 Some kids think the most important decision they have to make is what col- lege to choose, what classes to take or even what to do on a Friday night! Well it ' s not! The most important decision for most students takes place the first day of school: Where should I sit? Upon entering the classroom you no- tice that each section of the room has — (-it ' s own distinct personality. For example, the seats near the win- dow are usually occupied by the daydreamers. The view, of course, de- pends on the location of the room. From the classrooms facing the horseshoe you can watch the gym classes in warm weather, or cars coming and going. Gov- ernment and Ftistory classes offer ex- — cellent views of people going out to lunch or just slipping away for a while. The back of the room is a perfect spot for passing notes or taking a quick nap. If you ' re extremely careful, the teacher won ' t notice, but it ' s best to stay in the -corners if you plan on sleeping during the class. Along the sides, the wall-huggers can be found. This group of people usually push their desks along the w all so they .can lean back comfortably. During some -[-seemingly endless lectures, you can ob- serve everyone along the wall taking a .quick snooze. The middle of the classroom usually consists of the cliques. They all save -[.seats for each other and gather there to. socialize and gossip. If you want to start the year off on the good side of your new teacher, be sure, to grab a seat in the first row as close to her desk as possible. This allows the teacher to see how well you are behav-. ing and see all the notes you have been taking. So, remember next time you enter a class for the first time, be sure to choose ’carefully. 84 Classroom Blueprint LEFT: With his mind on other things, sophomore Glenn Brumm ignores his algebra for the moment and relaxes.

Making me very jittery is more like it! This is my first role in a school play. Really the second school play, if you count my portrayal of a tree in the first grade. But there are real people out there tonight! What if I goof? Will Mom and Dad disown me? Oh, no! The cur- tain is opening. The lights are on me. There ' s my cue! " Uhhhhh . . . " Without a doubt, this thought goes through every actor ' s and actress ' mind at one time or another. But under the di- rection of Mrs. Renee Kouris, Dramatic and English teacher, flaws and butterfly stomachs go unnoticed for the most part. In order to become a Drama Club member, students were required to sell a minimum of five tickets and make two posters per play, pay $1 dues per semes- ter, and attend meetings. Going to Chi- cago ' s Arie Crown Theater to see the play " The Man of LaMancha " was one of the various activities Drama Club did. Twelve experienced drama students composed the nationally know organi- zation called Thespians. Those initiated into troop 2861 were required to work at least 100 hours on various areas of the plays. The initiation ceremony of new members was held in the spring, along with the election which hailed senior Marianne Lanman as the Drama Club Thespian president. To help cover the costs of the ex- pensive equipment and costumes for the plays, Drama Club received a loan from the Booster Club with the agreement that Drama members would sell Booster Club tickets and pay back as much of the loan as possible from profits. Other donations were made by various patrons. So what if not all Drama students be- come as famous as Liza Minnelli or Ben Vereen? At least they get a first hand ac- count of butterfly stomachs, opening nights, the roar of applause, cast parties and the quiet hope that someday their names would be flashing on a New York Broadway marquee ....

Drama Club, Thespians 87 Ursula finds Icy in fine arts Unknowingly, I rushed into the room as my mother was listening to her sym- phony records, and I asked her if she had found my rock album that I had lost the week before. She snapped back that I should learn to appreciate " real " music and the fine arts. People were always telling me to become more sophisticated. So I, Unsophisticated Ursula, decided to become more sophisticated by taking some fine arts courses. I didn ' t know anything about art, so I started at the beginning with Basic Art to learn the basics of the other art courses. Later when I completed it, I could take other art classes like Printmaking, which involved silk screen prints and linoleum cuts. Dimensional Design, where I could learn to carve or make structures out of plaster and wood, Advanced Painting, where I could work on the easels or His- torical and Environmental Art, where I could learn about famous artists and their masterpieces. I could even take Drawing and Paint- ing, where one of the projects was to draw facial distortions, Visual and Ap- plied Design, or if I kept with it and took five semesters of art classes and received a teacher recommendation, I could take Art Projects. So much for the art classes. I could think about which art class I would want to take next year after I had finished the year-long Basic Art class. (continued on page 90) ABOVE RIGHT: Tiny chips fly off the plaster block as junior Nancy Anderson carves out a figure in Di- mensional Design.

" Art 89 Bcstcil gives way tc Each’s •real music’ (continued from page 88) I figured if I took Dramatics, I could learn to express myself better, so of course, I took it. In Dramatics I helped work on the fall play, " Count Dracula " sets, learned how to apply theatrical make-up and even took a tour of the catwalk. Was that scary! Actually, it wasn ' t that high, but besides being unso- phisticated I was afraid of heights. But I was getting more sophisticated with each fine arts class I was taking. Hurrah! Hurrah! Of course, I took choir which helped me better my singing talents. The Ninth Grade Glee Club, which was open to all freshmen; the Tenth Grade Choir, which was composed of sophomore girls; and the Gorilla Choir, which was made up of sophomore boys and junior girls and boys, helped improve singing abilities. Surprisingly, I was ready for the Christ- mas and spring concerts. Unlike the other three choirs which were open to all students, Concert Choir consisted only of specially selected se- niors. Concert Choir members were able to see the Chicago Symphony. Lastly, I took Music Appreciation. In that particular class I even got to see the opera, Peter Grimes, along with some of the Concert Choir members. I don ' t think I will ever truly learn to appreciate Bach, but taking those fine art classes helped me to understand music, art and dramatics better. So, in the end, I finally, finally, became more sophisticated. 90 Fine Arts LEFT: To direct the Concert Choir, Mr. Richard Holmberg gestures with his hand to encourage them to sing louder.

Where is it coming from? I ' m getting closer to it. Oh! I should have known. It ' s coming from the choir room. The ensembles must practice in the morning. Well, I guess practice makes perfect. It ' s a good thing that Mr. Richard Hol- mberg, Music Department Director and Mr. Gene Fort, U.S. History teacher, are making them practice because they have a Christmas and Spring concert to sing at and NISBOVA is coming up also. The Christmas concert was a big hit with the Boys Ensemble consisting of 12 sophomore and junior boys, the Senior Ensemble with 10 girls, Mixed Ensemble having 10 senior boys and girls, the Ju- nior Girls Ensemble also having 10 girls and a new addition this year, the Soph- omore Ensemble having 9 girls. And they ' re going to have soloists too! Oh, that should be nice. Maybe not for se- nior Cathy Miller and juniors John Boch- nowski, Karen Plunkett and Ann Melby. They have to sing in front of all those people! Along with singing in the Christmas and Spring concerts, the ensembles also competed in NISBOVA, Northern In- diana School Band, Orchestra and Vocal Association, at Gary Lew Wallace High school; and on Feb. 18, they made their way to state at Indianapolis. It ' s a good thing they spent all those hours prac- ticing and it sure paid off because five ensembles placed first at state. Those ensembles really kept busy; they not only sang at school concerts, but they also sang at the Middle School and several community functions. Now what ' s that noise? It doesn ' t sound like the ensembles practicing and this late in the year. Oh, now I get it. They ' ve got the stereo on and they are just taking it easy. ABOVE: BOYS ENSEMBLE.

" " It sounds like Chicago ' s Fifth sym- phony, but it ' s coming from one of those rooms over there. " " It ' s getting louder. It ' s coming from this hall. It must be the Concert Band practicing one of their songs. " As in the past, Marching Band was di- vided into three bands after football sea- son. Varsity Band, held during fourth hour, consisted of 16 members who could receive more individual instruction. Concert Band ' s 40 members practiced during sixth hour and played classical and popular music. The Wind Ensemble concentrated on more difficult classical and contemporary selections. The 35 members practiced every day during fifth hour. The Wind Ensemble and Con- cert Band performed at Christmas and spring concerts. Selected at tryouts, the 15 members of Stage Band practiced every Tuesday af- ter school. Their performances consisted of playing big band music at various community functions. Mr. David Carmony, band director, also directed the Pep Band at pep rallies and basketball games. The band was open to anyone interested in playing. The 30 members practiced after school on Thursdays. The 25 orchestra members, under Miss Elizabeth DiCiaula, played in a win- ter and spring concert. During sixth hour, the Orchestra practiced classical and contemporary music. The bands raised money for music, uniforms, and instruments through their annual fruit sale. " Some conflicts made it hard to play some of the music we had planned mostly because of lack of people, " stated Mr. Carmony. " The band ' s overall sound was quite strong because we had many more seniors in number.

I hope the fans ap- preciate the halftime show after this three hour practice. " The 80 Marching Band members helped raise spirit by playing in parades on hot sweltering days and during half time at blistering cold football games. These students began practicing many months before school along with Mr. David C armony, Band Director. To raise money for new music and in- struments, the annual fruit sale was held. When the holidays neared, the Band and Orchestra Parents Association sold items for Christmas. In October the Band participated in the Northern Indiana School Band Or- chestra Association competition where they took second place. Drum Major Dorry Gorman, senior, placed third in the individual competition. The Band also gave two concerts throughout the year. Together with the 27 members of Drill Team, the students performed in the Munster 4th of July parade. For the first time they performed at Hobart ' s 4th of July parade where they placed first in the band division and also received a trophy for being the best all-round entry in the parade. Other parades they performed at included the Homecoming and Ham- mond Christmas parade. Both groups performed during football halftimes. While the Band ' s performance ended at the conclusion of the football season, Drill Team continued to perform throughout the basketball season. They also demonstrated their spirit by doing different routines at pep rallies. Drill Team underwent a major change in the spring. The girls were chosen on the basis of performance and appear- ance. Unlike previous years, there was not a certain quota to be filled. Only the number of girls, who showed these qual- ities, were chosen. At any given time three girls, who did not know the routine to their fullest ability, did not perform. Officers were elected and were re- sponsible for organizing the team with the help of sponsor Mrs. Elizabeth Star- ewicz, clothing teacher. During the first semester, sixth hour was used for prac- tice, but as second semester came the girls had to get together before and after school to learn their routines. Seven girls attended camp at Ball State to learn new techniques and methods for routines. The team competed at NISBOVA where they were put in the second divi- sion of three in which no places were given. Money for their annual banquet was made through car washes, bake sales, and a sucker booth at the spring Carnival. Though sometimes the conditions were not the best, the satisfaction the Marching Band and Drill team got from the loyal fans and athletes made it all worth while. % Marching Band, Drill Team BELOW: MARCHING BAND: FRONT ROW: Dave Sza- kacs, Daniel Rakos, Paul Finlayson, George Roberts, Gregg Gilboe, Bob Wisnewski, Chuck Loomis, Michelle Yosick.

Marching Band, Drill Team 97 Majorettes , Flags, Rifles Flying objects add tun, entertainment The field is quiet. There is a low mur- mur from the hypnotized crowd. Sud- denly, there is a strange whipping noise in the wind. Twirling, glittering objects can be seen, and white guns are being tossed around. What is this odd scene? It ' s the Majorettes, Flag Corps and Rifle Squad during half-time! The whipping sound came from the 13 member Flag Corps which practiced faithfully during 6th hour. Mr. David Car- mody, band director, helped the Flag Corps with their fund raising projects which included selling fruit with the Band and selling greeting cards. Rifle Squad also sold greeting cards before Christmas. This and paper drives were the money raising projects for the year. Most of the funds raised went to the Marching Band to repay the money that the Rifle Squad had borrowed in or- der to get started. The techniques that the six member Rifle team used were taught by senior Ruth Morrison who at- tended Smith-Wallbridge camp during the previous summer. The majorettes also attended Smith- Wallbridge camp to learn new tactics. The two girl team practiced contin- uously 6th hour and after school in order to make up and to perfect routines. Sponsored by home ec. teacher Eliza- beth Starewicz, the girls sold Mustang caps for $3.75. Selling the hats at lunch and during basketball games brought in a $275 profit. All three of these organizations, Ma- jorettes, Rifle Squad and Flag Corps par- ticipated in the Homecoming Parade, pep sessions and during half-time at the football and basketball games. The lights start to dim, and as the girls leave the field, another half-time has come to an end. p ■ FAR ABOVE: MAJORETTES.

Y s A j j !jl ' : 7 9 A ft 1 9 7jm y 100 Cheerleaders, Pep Club ‘It ' s 3 am, pass me more Charmin ' Ready O.K.! Gimme an M ... M, Gimme a U ... U, Gimme an N . . . N, Gimme an S . . . This familiar sound has been heard throughout the school for years. During pep rallies, games or in a cheer block, most students associate this loud sound with the cheerleaders in raising school spirit for everyone. Getting up at 3 o ' clock in the morning to T.P. various athletes ' houses, writing secret admirer letters to team members to lift their spirits before a game, having cookies, brownies and punch for the team after the game, painting signs and making hoops are all a part of being a cheerleader. To raise money, the four freshmen cheerleaders along with four sophomore Junior Varsity cheerleaders, had bake sales throughout summer school. Obtaining spirit in their class and cheering their teams on to victories, the freshmen and Junior Varsity cheerleaders also got to dress and help the varsity cheerleaders T.P. the fieldhouse during the homecoming activities. Along with helping the freshmen and junior varsity cheerleaders, the varsity cheerleaders had their hands pretty full rousing school spirit. This summer, to help rouse school spirit, all six of the varsity cheerleaders, consisting of five seniors and one junior, went to the National Cheerleaders Camp at Illinois State Universi ty in Bloo- mington Normal, III. The girls received four blue ribbons, one red and were named one of the top eight squads out of 200. They also won the Spirit Stick. Twelve were awarded to the squads that tried the hardest and were most enthusi- astic. Their picture was also on the cover of the Illinois High School Athletic Asso- ciation Handbook. The cheerleaders learned new cheers, chants, jumps, pyra- mids and ideas for pep rallies. Going to camp really paid off. For the second year they passed their knowl- edge on to other girls in grades 4-8. They taught cheering in the summer with two one-week sessions in July and were able to teach the girls most of the new things they had learned. With the money they earned from the sessions and raising funds for the Booster Club, the cheer- leaders received $200 from them which enabled the girls to buy new uniforms. The rest of the money went towards pa- per, paint, refreshments, props, and cor- sages for certain games. To become a cheerleader, tryouts were held in the spring. Most of the judges were teachers who were picked by last year ' s varsity cheerleaders, people involved in the Athletic Depart- ment and last year ' s varsity cheerleaders. Under the leadership of Mrs. Darlene Vassil, art teacher, the girls were asked to do various cheers, jumps and acrobatics. Before tryouts, the groups practiced ev- ery day after school for a week to better their skills. At the beginning of the summer, all three squads had a meeting and elected senior Luann Revenew as captain. They then distributed uniforms and squads or- dered emblems and chevrons. Helping the cheerleaders raise school spirits were members of Pep Club. Led by sophomore president Linda Luberda, the club raised funds through numerous bake sales. The profits went toward pro- viding bus transportation to away games. " I think the club did a great job of helping to raise the school ' s spirit, " commented Linda. All in all, being a cheerleader and a member of Pep Club didn ' t require hav- ing the loudest voice. Many hours were spent painting signs and having bake sales. Each girl strove to raise the best school spirit possible. Gimme a T . . . T, Gimme an E . . . E, Gimme an R . . . R. What have you got? Munster! Louder! MUNSTER! LOUDER! MUNSTER!!!!

Quietly creep- ing down the silent, empty halls looking for the right locker number. Diligently and skillfully turning the right com- bination. You did it. Now, you try to stuff as many balloons, sweets and the fa- mous secret admirer letters into the locker getting it ready for decorations. Red and white streamers suspended from top to bottom with balloons and messages taped in various places. It ' s done before anyone could see you as you nonchalantly walk down the empty hall. Getting to school early is not one of the students favorite past times. This does not hold true for the Girls Timing Organization. Along with helping the teams run meets, they also help lift their spirits beforehand. Girls on Swimming, Track and Wrestling GTO all took part in helping the teams. Swimming GTO did its part by timing at both the girls and boys swim meets. To help the swim teams raise their spirit before the state meet, the girls per- formed skits during pep rallies. The funds raised through bake sales went toward buying supplies of toilet paper to decorate the swimmers houses. At each last meet, the teams showed their appreciation to the 35 girls by presenting them with carnations. For the 19 girls on Track GTO, " On your mark, get set, GO! " was often a fa- miliar sound. The girls ran the stop watches, gave out ribbons, kept track of statistics and held the finish line. The girls also had various bake sales to help raise their profits for various locker decorations. One of the jobs for the 37 girls on Wrestling GTO was throwing in the towel. This was to signal the referee that the time was up. Also, the girls watched the clock and kept score along with us- ing their voices to cheer the team on. The profits from Wrestling GTO bake ' sales went toward paper and paint sup- plies for painting signs. Sponsored by Mrs. Doris Johnson, English teacher and senior president, Susie Norton, GTO did more than just time or keep statistics. A lot of time and effort was put into each thing they did with the result of abundant team con- fidence and overwhelming team spirit.

This is great! This kid really takes good care of me. Of course, with all the hard work to get me and this jacket I can see why. All those excruciating practices and the times selling those programs really makes people look up to me. By paying $1.00 dues and lettering in a varsity sport, you could be a member in either the Lettermen or Letterwomen clubs. In addition, members had to ac- cumulate 50 points in order to get their jackets. (This was the first year the Let- terwomen could get jackets.) They would have to pay half by themselves and the school would pay the other half. The two clubs together sponsored a dance in the fall. The dues money from the Let- terwomen Club was used to help set up the spring Athletic Award Banquet, for the girls under the sponsorship of Miss Brenda Coffield, physical education teacher. The Letterman Club sponsored by Mr. Jack King, Health and Safety teacher, were able to gain points for their jackets by selling programs, ushering football and basketball games and by sweeping the floor and holding the ropes during half-time at the basketball games. Well, I guess it ' s about time to go home now.

May I have your attention please for the morning announcements " Oh boy, I better get ready for this. I have to take notes to make sure I won ' t miss anything O.K. That ' s three on Thursday, two next Monday .... Oh, no, FOUR on Tuesday. Sometimes I wonder if I ' m not in too many clubs. I mean, sometimes I really get confused. Like what happened last week. I knew I had a meeting and I was supposed to be at the pool by 5 p.m. Well, I got all my scuba gear, changed into my bathing suit, put on my snorkel, mask and flippers, and walked into the pool. How embarrass- ing! I walked right into the middle of a boys swim meet where I SHOULD have been timing for GTO! However, I ' m not the only person in this kind of situation. Approximately 50 percent of the students are involved in at least one of the clubs offered. However, not every club is open to all students. For instance, students must earn mem- bership into National Honor Society, Quill and Scroll, Thespians, Lettermen and Letterwomen, the Speech and De- bate Team and Drill Team. Let ' s see. Tonight I have a Drama Club meeting. This is the largest club, con- sisting of 216 members. It sure is differ- ent compared to Chess, which only has 11 members. It ' s funny to find out why certain people join certain clubs. The most common reason is the chance to meet new people and be with the friends you rarely see. Many join the hobby clubs like Bowling, Scuba, or Chess Club to improve and practice their skills in that area. Personally, I just joined clubs to have more pictures of me in the school yearbook. You know, you can always tell which students are involved the most in clubs. They are the ones with twenty or so numbers after their name in the index. Of course, that includes all the possible sports there are and also the co-curri- cular activities such as singing in the choir, playing in the band or working on the school yearbook or newspaper. Unfortunately, there are a few dis- advantages to being involved in so many groups. For instance, I have to sell over a dozen play tickets, paint so many signs that my fingers are permanently stained, sell jackets, tootsie roll banks, giant col- oring books, Bic pens, candles, raffle tickets, and candy bars; wash cars on very, very cold days; and, of course, bake approximately 2,754 cookies and brownies. But, the advantages are much greater. I have gone on three hayrides, seen a professional play, tasted foreign food at Magic Pan and even gone to an opera. Oh well, I must remember that tonight I have to get on my scuba gear and re- port to the pool. Or was it my shorts and report to the fieldhouse for the intra- mural volleyball game? Or could it be that I ' m supposed to put on my dingy jeans and paint signs for the upcoming play? Or maybe . . .

Did the coach work us hard today! Sometimes I don ' t think he likes me. But I realize we really do have a winning reputation to keep up. After all, outsiders see the school through our never-ending ability to bring home trophies and titles. Just like the Girls Swim Team knew they had to make it or break it. And, lo and behold, they brought home their third straight State championship! But, they weren ' t the only team to make it to State competition. The Volleyball, Boys Swim Team and Boys and Girls Tennis Teams, plus a few gymnasts had the chance to go on to State meets to break even their own records. And that ' s really hard to do when you already have the reputation of being at the very top. You know, there sure is a lot of pres- sure on the teams. After winning so many titles in previous years, they had a lot to live up to. Even if teams don ' t al- ways win, individuals still can make it on their own. For the first time in school his- tory, seniors Greg Oslan and Kim Duhon won the Indiana High School Athletic Association Mental Attitude Award. Was that an honor!!! Many athletes also found you can ' t al- ways make it at the top. Even though the football team won the conference title and kept the Bridge trophy away from Highland, they lost the Homecoming game against Merrillville, wiping away their chances to make it into the Class AAA playoffs. Throughout the year, whether with a team or as an individual, students had to MAKE IT OR BREAK IT.

Even third year Boys Cross Country Coach Kevin Vana, social studies teacher, likes to build his team with both youth and experience. Six returning lettermen, led by senior captains Dean Boldin and Bob Carroll, furnished the team spirit needed by the ' Dean ' s injury hindered the team and was one of the major reasons why we lost conference. ' . . . Coach Kevin Vana runners to score well in meets. Boldin and Carroll, in addition, were the two senior members of the top seven. The remaining five consisted of juniors Greg Bobin, Jim Fissinger, and Tom Sidor, and sophomores Keith Gei- selman and Paul Trgovich. The runners began practice in late Au- gust and ran a maximum of 12 miles a day. Frequent running during the sum- mer, however, also helped the team to compile an 8-6 season record over the fall quarter season. Injuries hampered the team with the loss of second top runner, Boldin, due to a major foot injury near the end of the season. " Dean ' s injury really hindered the team and was one of the major reasons we lost conference. Without him, our chances of winning sectionals were lost, " explained Coach Vana. Practice, however, did pay off for 17 team members as they placed second out of eleven teams at the Hillsdale meet in Michigan, and fourth at the Highland Invitationals. Other records included fifth in conference, and eighth at sectionals. " I don ' t really think our record can speak well for the team, " replied junior Jim Fissinger. " We would have had a much better record but competition be- tween team members hurt the team more than lack of ability.

Boys Cross Country 117 young X-Country squad rises early While most of the student body were fast asleep in their nice, warm, comfort- able beds, the Girls Cross Country team arose to hot and humid August mornings to run their average of six miles a day. Dressed in shorts or sweat suits, the team ran down the side streets of town and through the parks to improve their stamina for the meets. When school started, the girls were joined by members of the Girls Tennis team. " Though the tennis team players were running for their own practice, some of them became my best runners, " exclaimed Coach Robert Maicher, Al- gebra and Computer Math teacher. Ending with a season record of 0—3, Coach Maicher commented, " We had a for practice young and very enthusiastic squad; we gained much needed experience in this year ' s competition. " Competi ng against their biggest rivals, they lost to Oak Park 23—27 and Rich South, 30—35. Team captains, sophomores Pam Thomae and Laura Brauer, along with the other ten members of the team, had the opportunity to compete in three in- vitationals. Highlighting the season was a third place finish out of ten schools which participated at the Lockport In- vitationals. Diane Kaniac, freshman, was awarded a medal at the Palatine In- vitational for her 12th place finish.

Golfers drive In rain, destination! Regionals golf n: a game in which a player using special clubs attempts to sink his ball into each of the 9 or 18 successive holes on a course with the least amount of strokes possible-Webster ' s Dictionary. To the nine girls who participated on the Girls Golf team and their coach, Mrs. De Hawkins, the word golf meant a lot " Best performance by a golf team from Munster " . . . Mrs. De Hawkins more than a definition can tell. It in- cluded a berth in Regionals, a second place in Sectionals, eight days of rain, and a 10—1 season record. Due to a week of rain, rescheduling was necessary and resulted with meets for eight consecutive days. However, the team came through to gain a berth in Regionals, finishing in fourth place. Low scorer was senior Cheryl Holzhall with a 101. Other scorers were seniors Beth Ann Brush, 105; Mary Beth Guiden, 109; Janice Lisle, 104; and Laurie Kristoff, 105. Beating Lowell, the team ' s " biggest rival " on their home course, 198-310, and achieving a second place over Low- ell in Sectionals by one stroke helped lead the girls to their 10-1 season record. The only loss came against Val- paraiso, 200-185. The time spent wading through soggy sand traps and driving into blustering winds seems to have been worth it, as Mrs. Hawkins reflected, " The perfor- mance of the team really pleased me. We had depth, which many of the teams lacked, as eight team members earned a varsity spot at least once during the year. The girls provided a unified team effort, and that ' s what it takes to produce a winning team. " 120 Girls Golf GIRLS GOLF 10-1 MHS OPP. Andrean 200 216 Valparaiso 200 185 M.C.

The team practiced throughout August from 8:30 to 10:30 in the morning and from 12:30 to 2:00 in the afternoon. Once school began, they practiced on the field from 3:10 to 5:00 p.m. and then watched films of previous games. For eight weeks the team remained undefeated, shutting out Valparaiso, Morton, and Crown Point in the first three games of the season. Coach John Friend stated, " I didn ' t realize how im- portant the tradition to win really was. Boys begin to build this attitude in fifth grade, and by the time they get to high school it is tremendously strong. I feel our mental attitude is our strongest weapon and helped us earn our 9-1 sea- son record, the best since 1971.

By season ' s end, the team was ranked seventh in the United Press Inter- national poll, and eighth by the Ameri- can Press. Assisting Coach Friend with the Var- sity Team were Mr. Dick Hunt and Mr. Al Bochnowski. The Junior Varsity Team, ending with a 3—2 season record, was coached by Mr. Leroy Marsh and Mr. Tom Sanders.

After the game, Such presented him with a trophy on behalf of all the team members. Due to a tie in voting, the team had four co-captains. They include Estrada, Koufos, Rhind, and Such.

Jerri Friend it ' s not a ballet symposium, but rather a volleyball team in action going through the essential “Bump, set, spike " steps. With the words, “Bump, set, and spike " constantly running through the heads of the 12 members of the Varsity Volleyball team, the girls finished up their season with an outstanding 23-5 record. A first place finish at sectionals and regionals helped the Spikers estab- lish their seventh place finish at state. " I think that togetherness and team work was the major factor which helped us reach our goal of competing at state, " explained senior Jerri Friend, " Enthusi- asm displayed by the team helped achieve unity among team members. Team unity was led by senior co-cap- tains Toni Gray and Judy Nottoli, and was held together by the other nine re- turning letterwomen. Beginning in late August, the girls practiced twice daily during the summer, and, once school resumed, there was only one after-school practice per day. A few girls, however, were unable to compete during the year because of ma- jor knee or foot injuries. Afflicting in- juries hampered senior team members Sue Gescheidler and Sara Muntiu. De- spite these injuries, the team managed to claim both the Sectional and Regional crowns, and advance to the state finals.

At State, the Spikers faced tough competition as they met with Muncie North, the even- tual state champions. They were de- feated in first round play by the scores of 12-15, 9-15. Aside from teamwork, team attitude played a major part in achieving success. For the first time in Mustang history, a female team member, senior Kim Du- hon, received the IHSAA Mental Atti- tude Award. " I really didn ' t expect to be nominated for the award and was sur- prised when I unexpectedly received it, " expressed Kim. Coach Carmi Thorton explained, " the whole team was very proud when Kim received the award. I don ' t think it could have been awarded to a more deserving person. " In team play, the Spikers came up against many tough rivals including Ga- vit. South Bend Riley, and Morton. Rounding up the season, five players were specially selected to the area All Conference Volleyball Team. They in- cluded Friend, Nottoli, Gray, Duhon, and senior Lisa Benne. Other honorable mentions included the presenting of the Most Valuable Player award to Duhon, and the Most Improved Player award to Friend. ' I was surprised when I unex- pecte dly received the award.

Finish- ing their season with an 19-1 overall record, the girls occasionally practiced during the year with the Varsity team. Summing up the season, Junior Varsity Head Coach Bob Shinkan, remarked, " the girls played together as a whole, and the word ' teamwork ' was the key factor which led them to their success.

The Seahorses were informed that the location of the State Swim Meet would be moved from Ball State University to Culver Military Academy.

Senior Jim Thrall and junior Joel Cutin, both who were hoping to get no less than a second or third place in their events, were hit by the flu and a 103 degree temperature which slowed Thrall ' s times and eliminated Cutin from participating in the State Meet.

For it is not indi- viduality, but rather teamwork, that helps a team reach its goals and achieve the highest degree of success possible. We really weren ' t expected to sweep the Sectionals . . . Coach Mike Copper Such was the case for the boys basket- ball team. Finishing the season with a 14- 7 overall record, the Cagers managed to capture a share of the Conference title with Crown Point. With a 5-1 conference record, recording their sole loss to Low- ell, three players, including seniors Mike Hertz and Paul Wolak and junior Tony Nelson were named to the All-Confer- ence Team. In order to achieve this honor, these players were judged on their overall play during Conference games. " I was really shocked upon being selected as a candi- date for the team. It was a very unexpected (continued on page 145) ABOVE: With control of the ball, senior Mike Hertz takes a look over the offense for an open man whom he can pass it to.

" At the beginning of the sea- son I didn ' t expect them to record as many victories as they did. " . . . Coach Mike Copper " We really weren ' t expected to sweep the Sectionals, " stated Head Coach Mike Copper, Algebra teacher, " We played the best that we could, but Lake Central had a major advantage on us in that they had all of their players, while two of our major players were out with either a case of the flu or minor knee injuries. " With Hertz and Wolak being the only two returning lettermen, the 12 members of the team had to build new team foundations. " At the beginning of the year the boys relied upon Hertz and Wolak to pull them through tough situations, " ex- plained Copper, " however, as the sea- son progressed, they merged and played together more like a constructive team. " Working as a team, the Cagers man- aged to win their first six opening games, take honors in the Frankfort Holiday Tournament, and defeat their rival Highland. " Highland didn ' t play up to their true standards and fulfill their role, " com- mented Hertz. " When we played them, we were considered to be the under- dogs, but as the game advanced roles were soon switched. " " I really was proud of the work dis- played by the boys.

Other recipients in- cluded junior John Rudakas for the greatest percent of field goals made, Wolak for the most rebounds, senior Dave Otte for the Pride, Hustle and De- sire award, and Hertz and Otte for the Captains ' Plaque. Hertz also received the Ray Comandella Award for Basketball and Academics for being the senior player with the highest grade point aver- age. This new award was established in honor of late alumni Ray Comandella who died in the University of Evansville plane crash. In Junior Varsity and freshman play, the results were quite different. The Ju- nior Varsity team under the direction of Mr. Ed Robertson, English teacher, fin- ished off their season with a record of 13-8. The Freshman team, on the other hand, was divided into two separate squads labeled the “A " and " B " teams. Coached by Mr. Jack Yerkes, English teacher, and Mr. Jack King, Health and Safety teacher, the A and B teams con- cluded their season with records of 11-6 and 11-3, respectively.

You take it step by step and try not to think ahead, " com- mented junior Melissa Murin. " Gymnas- tics is harder than most other sports be- cause you need to be able to use every muscle that you have in your body. " The Gymnastic Team ended with a. Beginner ' s season record of 5-3, an In- termediate record of 4-4, and an Op- tional record of 4-4. " The most difficult meets were against Highland and Mer- rillville. Because of their excellent faci- lities, they are the most polished gym- nasts in the area; but it was fun to compete against them, " reflected Coach Kathy Dartt, English teacher. Four girls placed in Sectionals. They were juniors Suzy Shaw, with a second in floor exercise; Murin with seconds in floor exercise and vault; and Joni Taylor, with a fourth on the team. Sophomore Nancy Hulett earned a third on the beam. Both Shaw and Murin placed third in floor exercise at Regionals. Murin and Shaw competed at State. Coach Dartt had " expected both girls to place in the top six. " However, going down with bronchitis, Murin was very weak and suffered a fall at the end of her routine, placing her ninth in floor exer- cise, with Shaw finishing third. 148 Gymnastics LEFT: In after school practice, sophomore Jean Cerejewski maintains perfect balance during her routine.

The practicing seemed to have paid off with an 11-3 record, third in confer- ence, fourth in sectionals and qualifying six for regionals.

Coach Brenda Coffield Accumulating a 12-1 overall team record, and recording their only loss to Valparaiso, the Netters saw that a Sectio- nal title layed straight ahead for them and was within their reach. Head Coach Miss Brenda Coffield ex- plained, " the girls went into Sectional play with the attitude that they were go- ing to give it the best shot that they could. Indeed they proved that they could do what they went in there for. " Included among the sectional players were senior Dinah Horath playing at the number one singles position, and soph- omore Christy DiCarlo playing at the number two singles position. The num- ber one doubles team consisted of Mel- ind and sophomore Judy Brauer, while junior Joli Pellar and freshman Mary Po- tasnik comprised the number two dou- bles team.

" The girls really worked together well as a team and it showed in their overall play. " . . . Coach Brenda Coffield Summing up the year as a whole. Miss Coffield remarked, " the girls really worked together well as a team and it showed in their play. The victories and titles we managed to win were not the work of a few individuals but rather, a whole team, merging and playing for each other and towards success.

Cold weather contin- ued at Sherwood Club throughout the beginning of April to the middle of the golf season. Then Mother Nature pulled a reverse trick. The sun was shining while the temperatures reached in the upper 70 ' s for the second half of the season. Despite the weather conditions, 15 members participated on the Golf team, with the Varsity Squad consisting of the top six players who included soph- omores Bob Blazevich, Tom Cozdecki, and Tom Corisiglia, and juniors Tom Cranack, Pat Chapin, and Dave Nelson. They finished with a seasonal record of 14-5. The Varsity Team placed third at con- ference. These six members later com- peted at Sectionals at Lake Hills and captured first place. They qualified for Regional competition and came in sixth place. When the scores had been tallied, the ' Stangs missed their trip to the State competition by only one stroke. A highlight of the season was when ju- niors Tom Granack and Pat Chapin made the All Conference Team. The two were selected because of their low averages. During the Varsity Team ' s matches, the Junior Varsity squad worked on their putting and driving. However, they did have a few matches and ended their sea- son with a 3-1 record. " They were all underclassmen and their scores improved greatly throughout the season. They worked very well to- gether, " concluded Coach Ed Mussel- man, algebra teacher.

Bootmen boast best season record, 10-1-1 Soccer, born in Europe thousands of years ago, has only emerged recently in area schools. Munster, of no exception, started their Soccer Club five years ago and has now developed it into one of the strongest teams in the area. The Soccer Team proved how strong they were by compiling an undefeated regular season of 9-0-1, and winning the Hammond Soccer League. The team ' s only blemish during the regular season came from a scoreless tie to eventual Hammond Soccer League Tournament champions East Chicago Washington (ECW). Going into the post-season tourna- ment, the Mustangs were the team to beat. In the opener the ' Stangs defeated Bishop Noll -u. i ms set up the team ' s semi-final match with ECW. With the score tied 1-1 and five seconds left on the clock, ECW " punched in " a goal, there by upsetting the game. " It was the best team that I ever coached. " . . , Coach Jack King The 25 member team was coached by Mr. Jack King, Health and Safety teacher. Coach King stated, " It was the best team that I ever coached. " The Mustangs were rated among the top teams in the area along with ECW and Morton. (Continued on page 171) Soccer 169 1 70 Soccer Experienced team captures Hammond Tournament title (Continued from page 169) In the entire season they gave up a to- tal of six goals. They did this while shut- ting out seven teams of the eleven they played. According to Coach King, one of the greatest advantages the team had was starting the year with eight returning lettermen. " Our team really stuck together all through the season. We never had any quarrels about who was going to play. When we were on the field, we seemed to know the moves of our own players because of the close team relationship, stated junior Steve Andrews. Team awards went to junior Tom O ' Connell for Most Valuable Offensive Player. Most Valuable Defensive Player went to seniors Mike Hertz and Doug Ness, juniors Chip Eggers and O ' Connell received the Most Valuable Player Award and Eggers also received the Pride, Hustle, and Desire award. Fresh- man Dane Johnson captured Most Assists. Looking forward toward next year, the ' Stangs expect another strong season. " We are not losing anything on de- fense, ' ' stated Coach King, " the only people we have to replace are Hertz, se- nior John Moehl, and Ness. " Coach King cited Andrews, Eggers, Johnson, and O ' Connell as the leading returners.

Sticfcmen score best school season record, 33-5 Thought for the day: The ball was in- vented in 600 B.C. The bat was invented in 1509. Which means, of course, that a baseball player in 600 B.C. could be up at bat for 2109 years without ever strik- ing out. Needless to say, the game was much simpler then. With the addition of umpires, fouls and walks, however, the game has become one full of com- petition, strategy and skill. Despite the many rain-outs and a heavy schedule, the Varsity team was able to compile a record of 23-5. Senior Steve Urbanski felt, “The most com- petitive games were against East Chi- cago Washington and Merrillville. They are two of the best teams and were tournaments. " Coach Niksic and the team set three goals at the beginning of the season. “We wanted to win 21 games, take the Conference Championship and win Sec- tionals. We achieved two of the three, " reflected Coah Niksic. The opening Sectional game was played against undefeated Gavit. The fifth ra- (continued on page 174) Baseball 173 BELOW RIGHT.

I bet I can make twenty laps easily. After all, it ' s only been a year since I last ran. Well, here it goes. Boy, I sure am getting tired. I ' ve probably already run seventeen laps. What— only two laps?! Well, I guess that I ' m just not in shape. I ' ll have to start body building if I ' m going to keep in shape for the winter. Exercise— a word known to all. But during the winter months this word takes on a more relevant meaning. For it is during the winter that students develop that extra bulge of fat around their mid- dles, and exercise is the only remedy which will take care of it. While many adventurous students take time out to travel to a various num- ber of health clubs, such as Omni 41, the YMCA, and others, the more athletic type of student can seek his pleasure by simply signing up for any of the three in- tramural programs available. Headed by Mr. Steve Wroblewski, geometry teacher, the students can choose be- tween programs consisting of basketball, volleyball, or ping-pong. A weekly gathering provides an op- portunity for the students in the intra- mural programs to divide up into their teams, which are chosen by appointed team captains, and compete against each other for the team trophies. On the other hand, Omni 41 and the YMCA are open almost every day of the year. Their vast corridors are occupied with racquetball and tennis courts, ice rinks, and a swimming pool. A daily visit to the fieldhouse provides a view of underclassmen running through several exercises or working on various athletic units. However, contrary to other years, the underclassmen were introduced to a co-educational plysical education program under the leadership of Miss Brenda Coffield, Girls Athletic Director, Mr. Jon Jepson, Boys Swim Coach, and Miss Betty Liebert, Girls Swim Coach. A variety of new recrea- tional sports including bowling, weight- lifting, and golf were just some of the many joint units worked on by both the males and females taking the course. " I really like the idea of having a co- educational program. The only thing that bothers me is having co-ed swimming with the boys, " remarked freshman Mar- garet Vasquez. Miss Coffield added, " At first we were afraid we would encounter some com- plications, but now I am really im- pressed with the way the program is working out. " Upon completing each unit, all of the physical education students must take skill tests determining their understand- ing of that specific unit. So, you can see that whatever your in- terests, exercise and recreational activi- ties are made available all around you so that you don ' t have to settle for that ex- tra bulge of fat around your middle. By exercising and body building, you can keep in shape all year long. Well, I just have ten more laps to go. If I keep this up, I might finish by seven a.m. But look at the bright side of things. If I keep on exercising, I ' ll be able to fit into that new bathing suit in the summer, those old tight pants, the size seven jeans I saw in the store and . . .

A blanket of darkness covers the house. An ominous silence fills the air, save the chilling whistle of the wind. Suddenly, a car drives slowly down the street. As it nears its destination, the headlights go off with the engine and the car coasts to a stop in front of its victim. Stealthily, six people garbed in boots, parkas, mittens, and ski masks crawl from the car. After the ammunition is passed out, the attack begins! Crunching through the knee-deep snow, rolls of toilet paper soar into the bare branches of oaks and maples. Two dare-devils scramble up to the bushes next to the front door, and entwine toilet paper in, out and around. As the final touch, a sign that reads “Good Luck " is attached to the garage door, lights go on inside the house. Six bodies dash for the car, which pulls swiftly away, leaving behind a sign that proves fans do exist. Pep rallies, skits, TPing and attendance at games all show the support that was given our athletic teams. During the year, pep rallies were a source of en- couragement for nearly all the athletic teams. Beginning with the Mustang fight song, they included speeches by coaches, introductions of team mem- bers, cheers and skits. Held after school, the pep rallies offered students an op- portunity to get rowdy and to fire up. On many mornings, toilet paper could be seen fluttering from the tree tops, and blowing down the street. Although TPing appears as vandalism to many adults, students accept it as an honor. In an ef- fort to show their support and encour- agement, the cheerleaders, the Girls Timing Organization (GTO), and fellow team members decorated the partici- pants houses before their games or meets. Secret admirers were also used to promote excitement. Letters, candy, and presents were placed in lockers of those who were swimming, wrestling, and run- ning track. The sign of support exhibited by most people is game attendance. Receiving the biggest crowd in Mustang history, the Homecoming game against Merrill- ville was played in front of 9500 fans. In these ways and many more, the people of the town and school show the concern they hold for the athletic teams and their achievements. more than a game ABOVE LEFT: To show support for the football team before the Homecoming game, members of the Junior Class get rowdie at the pep rally.

It ' s so stupid to believe in that. " " What do you mean stupid? Haven ' t you ever heard that a black cat means bad luck if it walks across your path? " " Silly superstitions. Who believes in them? I think it ' s dumb. Look over at the gymnists. That girl is rubbing vaseline in- tensive care lotion on her legs. What ' s she doing that for? She doesn ' t have dry skin. " " She puts it on because she believes it will make her performance as a gymnist much better. Kind of like a g ood luck charm. " " No way! Hey, junior Beth Eggebrect is putting a penny in her warm-up suit. Don ' t tell me she ' s superstitious. " " Just a little. The penny helps her do better in her events. " " And how about over there sitting in the corner? Junior Suzy Shaw is eating chicken and stars soup. " " Uh huh, she always does. She says she does better when she has the soup before the meet. Another little . . . good luck charm. " " Junior Sharon Mazanek looks wor- ried. I wonder why that is. " " Because it ' s raining. " " I know it ' s raining. It ' s been raining all day. So what?! " " Makes her loose concentration. " " What? You mean the rain is some sort of jinx? " " Yep, you got it. " " Oh come on now. No one believes in dumb superstitions. " " What do you mean no one believes in superstitions? There are lots of people who do, especially people who com- pete. A penny, four leaf clover, a bobby pin, a necklace, or ribbons are just some of the few things people believe in.

Coach John Friend athletic director, even picks up pennies here and there for luck. " " I can believe it about Mr. Wrob- lewski, but not about Coach Friend. " " Some people like to listen to hard rock music or just sit all alone in a dark room for luck. Come on let ' s go over to the pool. The guys are getting ready for an away meet, and the girls have a home meet. " " So. What dumb superstitions do they have? Or shouldn ' t I ask. " " Well, the guys always pour Munster water into the pools at away meets, and the girls kiss a towel. " " That ' s not superstition! It ' s tradition, like Thanksgiving and turkey! It is not a good luck charm or anything possibly like that. It boosts their morale and keeps their spirits high. " " But like I said, it ' s a good luck charm to them. " " No, it ' s not! Let ' s go home. This crazy superstition stuff is going over your head!! " " I ' m right. It may be tradition and boost their morale, but what would they do without it?!!!

Superstition 181 Giving It — oil you got 182 Competition With only three seconds left on the clock, the score is tied 56-56. Beads of sweat show on the basketball players face. He knows he has to make this free shot to win. The game is now in his hands if he misses, we lose. His team- mates and fans anticipate his reaction, while his opponents sweat it out on the side lines. He shoots! The ball twirls carelessly around and around the hoop, the fans screaming out, first in terror and then in elation. The ball falls through the hoop! The basketball player jumps up in joy. His teammates and his coach sur- round him and congratulate him. His de- termination to win has brought him suc- cess and a winning game. Everyone has some competitive spirit in them, to strive for the top and deter- mined to win. The Munster athlete will not settle for second best. He or she wants to succeed, and as a result he or she gives a 100 per cent effort and is quite successful. " I feel that that the high aspiration of the community tends to push students in athletics as well as in academics, " stated Coach John Friend, athletics director. " The result is highly competitive, and highly motivated teams. " The swimmers for example, be it the boys team or the girls team, are very competitive. Their coaches Mr. Jon Jep- son and Miss Betty Liebert, both physical education teachers, have the swimmers practicing an average of four hours a day, before and after school, increasing their stamina and building up their deter- mination to do their best. The spectators at swim meets notice the swimmers tense expressions filled with concentration before their event, their competitive attitude during their event, and the look of victory when the event is completed. The spectators also realize how successful the swimmers are at returning with consecutive state championships. Coach Friend commented, " I feel sorry for the first swim team that does not bring back the state crown. They will be ridiculed for not succeeding. The stu- dents do not realize how difficult that is for them to do. " It ' s not just at swim meets that one can see such a drive to win. It ' s seen in every sport from gymnastics all the way to football. Students take for granted all the sec- tionals regionals, and the placements in state competition that the athletes are awarded. The trophy cases are over loaded with trophies and new ones keep coming in from the Girls Volleyball team, the Girls and Boys Swim teams, and the football team are just some ex- amples. Trophies are placed on the floor and in places where they cannot truly be observed and recognized. " Coaches from other schools admire our trophy cases and are disappointed that we have no room for the trophies, since they have plenty of room in their trophy cases, " concluded Coach Friend.

As the last few seconds of the game tick away, the crowd buzzes with the comment, “What are you doing after the game tonight? Where are you going? " Going to a game, be it football or bas- ketball, involves many more decisions than other activities do. First is what to wear, followed by who to go with and who will drive. Also common are when to leave and where to sit upon arriving. The most challenging decision, however, is what to do once the game has ended. Frequently, dances were held featur- ing local bands. Lasting from the end of the game until 10:30, dances were a popular source of entertainment, crowd- ing an average of 300 students into the cafeteria. If a dance was not held, many people ended up driving around, looking for a place to go or something to do . . . After packing eight people into a Toyota, the fun would begin. Everyone being hungry, the first stop would be someplace to eat. MacDonalds, Co- lucci ' s. Upper Krust and Aurelio ' s were crowded with people munching on Big Macs or a pizza with everything. After stuffing themselves, everyone packed back into the car, and they be- gan cruising around Munster. The nov- elty of this soon wore off and new ideas for activities were needed. As the car stopped for a red light, the driver puts it in park. Suddenly, eight people jumped out of the car, screaming, and circled the car, running. As the light went from red to green, they jumped back in, and tore off in a cloud of smoke. This is com- monly called the " Chinese Fire Drill " . After the laughter subsided, the forty- fifth circling of Munster began. Every house, stop sign, tree, and mailbox be- comes familiar. " We could just go to our houses " , someone innocently suggested. " Are you kidding? It ' s only 11:30! " , shouted one kid as he craned his neck to see the clock in front of the bank. " Yea, we have at least another hour to drive around! " , another added. As heads began to nod, and the needle on the gas gauge hovered slightly above " E " , the driver motioned to end the evening. As each person was dropped off at their house, a question formed in their mind, " I wonder what we ' ll do after tomorrow night ' s game? " After the game 185 ABOVE: After putting his next victim into a deep trance, junior )im Szczepaniak, Count Dracula, sum- mons her to his call.

These busy halls with 1770 students, 75 teachers and 19 other staff members are always so crowded. Everywhere I turn there ' s more people coming at me nearly running me down. You know, it ' s funny, but everyone is so different. Although they seem lost in the crowd, everyone has to break out and make it on their own— become an individual. Whether it ' s having alot of friends and wearing cute red skirts, or red jackets with white letters on Friday, some kids have to make it through groups. Others, although they may not be the most popular, still had to make their individuality known. Even the shyest student had to break out of his shell at one time or another. Just look at that kid over there! He ' s not even close to the Robert Redford type, but he can make it in his own little group. And what about that kid over there? He has on his symbolic letterman ' s jacket, but he still managed to break the typical jock image. Even though everyone seemed so dif- ferent, I found you need all kinds of people to make the school work. It takes everyone to MAKE IT OR BREAK IT!

Hey arid the office dears Administration . . . that ' s an ominous sounding word. People in power, people who make decisions, people who ad- ministrate. The closest most students come to defining the word “Administra- tion " is: the office with glass windows between the fieldhouse and pool locker rooms labeled " Centr al Office. " However, it ' s the people inside the of- fices that make up the Administration. Performing their individual duties, the people in the Central Office consisted of Dr. Wallace Underwood, Super- intendent; Dr. John Preston, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction; Mrs. lel- ene Souders, Elementary Coordinator; Mr. Ronald Casey, Director of Testing and Psychological Services and Mr. Leonard Tavern, Assistant Superinten- dent for Business Affairs. Most people don ' t even realize that there are such positions as these or that they fall under the word " Administration. " Beyond the Central Office, changes in the North and South Offices signified the restructuring of the administrative department. Mr. James Bawden took over the new position of Assistant Princi- pal for Pupil Personnel Services which entailed being a counselor and Guid- ance Director and being in charge of grade reporting and scheduling. Assum- ing the position of new Assistant Princi- pal, Dr. James Rice worked on curricu- lum developments, observed and evaluated teachers and handled dis- cipline problems in the South Office. Dr. Rice was formerly a history teacher in Michigan City. Other Administrators included Ath- letic Director Mr. John Friend; Mr. Carl Sharp, Director of Foods Services, and members of the School Board. The Administration consists of more than an office; it ' s made up of many people, often overlooked, who make decisions and administrate. Every time a decision is made and every time power is exerted in the various offices through- out the school, the Administration is at work.

Now reverse your mind and picture that same classroom, only now with teach- ers as the students. Mrs. Nancy Hast- ings, journalism teacher, explained about the situation by saying, " We really don ' t have any choice. " Due to a state law, any teacher who has graduated from college as of 1966 has to complete his masters degree in order to obtain a permanent license to teach. Consequently, many teachers not only give tests and grade home- work, but they also find the situation reversed and them taking the tests and doing the homework. As Mrs. Hastings In the lounge at the Purdue Calumet campus, Mrs. Marge Barrett looks over her notes before her 6 p.m. class. commented, " A lot of graduate courses stress term papers and research work. We write and write and write. " Mrs. Marge Barrett, English teacher, who attended classes at Purdue Calu- met, felt " schizophrenic " about the en- tire situation. A masters degree wasn ' t the only reason she went back to school. " I need to keep in touch with how it feels to be on the other side of the desk. " So next time you ' re sitting in English 10 complaining about having to do an eight sentence paragraph, think of your teacher sitting in class that night com- plaining about writing a term paper on " The Analytical Comparison of the Love Life of a Grasshopper and the Bi- ological Process of Banana Curvature.

ITInre than just novels, needlepoint A quick game of racquetball, canning home grown vegetables and reading the latest best selling novels seem to be typi- cal teacher pastimes. However, not all were so ordinary, as one teacher was said to be watching for subs at Whiting Beach, and others were involved in some unusual hobbies such as square- dancing, racing Porsches and also raising bees. Mr. Leo Sherman, business teacher and Apiarist (Beekeeper), started his hobby two years ago when he took over his father ' s beehive. His hobby involves reading various materials on the subject, talking to other experienced beekeepers and, unfortunately, getting stung some- times. " Beekeeping is not just a hobby, it ' s a hobby and a business that can make money, honey, " exclaimed Mr. Sherman. On more of a competitive level, Mrs. Helga Meyer, German teacher and avid Porsche driver, explained, " I am ex- tremely competitive. I enjoy success and winning, but I also like the personal chal- lenge of driving the Porsche a little bit harder and faster on each lap. " Mrs. Meyer ' s basic philosophy of racing is " smooth is fast. " After she and her hus- band bought their first Porsche, they soon became active in the Porsche Club of America, which involves high speed driving on closed courses or race tracks. " Definitely the most interesting and exciting track I ever drove was the Nur- burgring in Germany, 14.8 miles long, " commented Mrs. Meyer. Being inter- viewed for Sports Illustrated in the spring of 1977 and meeting Dr. Porsche and his family were just a couple of the pleasures Mr. and Mrs. Meyer have ex- perienced since taking up their hobby. Even though most teachers don ' t have such unusual hobbies, everyone still has his own way of expressing his interests. Whether it ' s just curling up with a good book or raising bees, a teacher ' s day doesn ' t merely end at 2:40. To locate the queen bee, Mr. Leo Sherman and fully examine the hive, wearing proper protection. Martin Hoernig, a professional beekeeper, care- 192 Faculty MRS.

It was their first day of high school and most were scared to death, but they quickly real- ized that most freshmen felt the same. After a while the first day jitters were a thing of the past and they finally learned how to open their lockers by them- selves. The freshmen then settled into a daily routine which was shortly inter- rupted by Class Executive Council and by Pride Committee elections. Right af- ter Class officers were announced, the freshmen took on the time-consuming responsibility of making decorations for the Homecoming dance. " They are a good Class and did a very good job dec- orating for the dance, " stated Mr. George Pollingue, Class sponsor. Money making projects during the year included bake sales, a dance, a su- cker sale and the cleaning up of the football field. Dr. Karl Hertz, principal, offered the class the chance to earn $75 by cleaning the field after three of the home games, including the Highland and Merrillville games. " We had enough people to get it done, but it would have been easier if more people had shown up, " commented Class president Mark Luberda. The money made during the year will be used for next year ' s Home- coming float. As they walked out of the building on the last day of school, there weren ' t any more hot, sweaty hands or feelings of uncertainty, just the feeling of con- fidence and anticipation of being a sophomore.

Many Freshmen had to endure the hu- miliation of the typical putdowns in rela- tion to wearing braces. Many hated them, rejected them and, at times, would have liked to dewire them. The ONE advantage of having braces was the once a month orthodontist ap- pointment, which got the student out of that English 9 unit test. However, disadvantages came by the dozens. Picture a moonlit night; a gor- geous guy edges closer to you, looks ro- mantically in your eyes and says with his deep, husky voice, " Uh, those braces aren ' t going to interfere, are they!? " Sud- denly, the whole night is ruined and all you want to do is go crawl in a dark closet and cry. Then there were those times when you had to carry that little bag of rubberbands with you. You would drop them in the hall, and all of those five million rubberbands would go bouncing all over the place! There is definitely an advantage when you tell your teacher you have to go im- mediately to brush your teeth and then walk around the halls for 20 quick minutes. However, have you ever tried to bite into a nice red apple, and you just can ' t do it? That ' s always dis- couraging. Even though you don ' t dare smile for any of those class pictures now, you hope that you ' ll have those braces off by the time you take your graduation picture! Because of the many restrictions caused by the awkwardness of his braces, freshman John Fissi- nger is limited to eating a lunch consisting of a mere half pint carton of milk.

Freshman Gena Faso commented, " It ' s hard getting into certain movies; I go up to buy tickets, and they ask me if I have lost my mom! " Freshman Brian Welsh felt, " People do tease you, but if you ignore them, they let you alone. " There are advantages of being short also, like getting in movies at a kid ' s price. And, some teachers think you ' re a " good boy " because you ' re little. If you are in wrestling, it ' s a great advantage because you ' re put in a lower weight class and if nobody else on the opposing team is in your weight class, you can au- tomatically win.

Planning the dance was a big respon- sibility for the freshmen since they were new to the school and it was the first big event of the year. Although the freshmen couldn ' t really afford to build a float, the contribution of decorating for Home- coming was essential. The freshmen worked for two hours every night after school for two weeks to make decora- tions. The decorations consisted of streamers, murals of Sesame Street scenes, the throne for the queen and princesses, Sesame Street lampposts and a garbage can for Oscar. " I do feel it was To provide more chairs for the couples, freshmen Monica Mellady and Cindy Bogucki, dressed as Bert and Ernie, help out at the Homecoming dance. a big responsibility, but I think it was more of a good experience for us since we are just starting high school and we have a good chance to see what it is like, " commented Freshman Class vice president Mary Jo Branco. Girls that dressed up as Oscar, the Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie and many other Sesame Street characters served cookies and punch, checked coats at the dance, helped couples find chairs to sit in and enjoyed a little bit of dancing themselves. Problems confronting the 204 couples that passed through the fence of Sesame Street consisted of couples taking each other ' s chairs, tear- ing down streamers while going to and from the dance floor and stepping on each other ' s feet while dancing. Even though the dance was very crowded, Freshman Class president Mark Luberda felt the dance " was a success. " Now that the freshmen had started getting involved in activities, they had many bigger and better things to look forward to; for example, not being a freshman anymore, trying out for Drill Team, joining all those clubs they never before heard of, being an " up- perclassman " and finally that last day called graduation.

This was not the case, however, with the sophomores. Soph- omores were accredited with much of the pandemonium during the pep ses- sions. What was the reason for this sud- den rush of spirit? Class President Suzie Strater explained, “We were younger, and it seemed like we had to prove our- selves to the others. " " They were a good group of enthusi- astic kids, " added Mr. Roger McGary, chemistry teacher and class sponsor, " They had a lot of pride in themselves. " " Our class was very loyal to the Sophomore Class officers include Bill Gomez, Sec- retary Treasurer; Suzie Strater, president; and Cathy Reppa, vice president; and Mr. Roger McGary, sponsor. school teams, and was very good in sup- porting them, mainly because most of us realized how important school spir it is, " stated Secretary Treasurer Cathy Reppa. Spirit was especially high during Homecoming when the sophomores captured a second place in their first at- tempt in float competition. Kermit the Frog, with the theme of " Make ' em Croak! " was the pride of all soph- omores. According to Mr. McCary, the only real problem was with egging of the float. Sophomores also showed their enthu- siasm by raising $750, which will be used for future floats and Prom. The money was raised by having sucker and bake sales, a cheese and sausage sale, and sponsoring a dance. Also, for the first time, sophomores were able to receive their class rings in the spring, rather than fall of their junior year. Bill Gomez, Vice President, com- mented " I was really happy we could get our rings early. This way, we can wear our class rings for two years.

MUNSTER PARAGON PRESS-On the night of Tuesday, October 18, ten mem- bers of the Senior Class formed the Se- cret Weapons And Tactics team in an ef- fort to raid the sophomore float. Their intention was to kidnap a sophomore and force him to make paper flowers for the senior float. Their efforts were thwarted, however, and they fled the scene of the attempted crime. Police say there was no damage done to property or sophomores, and, unfortunately, ac- cording to one terrorist, no damage was done to Kermit the Frog, the float which would eventually capture 2nd place. Wearing dark clothes and masks to prevent their identity from being known, the terrorists entered the scene of the In mock fear for her life, sophomore Julie Lanman good-humoredly goes along with the Senior SWAT team members in their attempted kidnapping and terrorizing of the sophomores. crime carrying fake machine guns. The masks varied from gas masks to stock- ings, and one SWAT member disguised himself with a rubber pig ' s head. The SWAT team arrived at the soph- omore float in a blue van with a flashing red light on top. Before arriving, some of the terrorists were seen surveying the area surrounding the float and the side streets which could be used as escape routes. Sources say that the van entered the Melbrook Drive cul-de-sac at approxi- mately 8:45. They then proceeded to leave the van and run towards the soph- omore float. Reportedly, the soph- omores ran to the back of the house in fear. After encountering unseen prob- lems, the SWAT team fled the scene. However, after a head count was taken and one member was found to be miss- ing, they returned. As soon as they re- covered SWAT member Greg Oslan they escaped again, eluding police ef- forts to capture them. Leading psychiatrists, including Dr. Sigmund Freud, believe that the pres- sures surrounding the competition of Homecoming floats are what caused the breakdown of these seniors. Police say that the SWAT team mem- bers have not been apprehended.

Because of the school policy of having a closed lunch, students didn ' t have the opportunity to go to Macs or Shakeys during lunchtime. However, they were able to choose from a wide variety of food at the cafeteria. The majority of sophomores chose ham and cheese or pizza with fries as their favorite noon- time meal. Whether it was lack of time or an ef- fort to lose some weight, many meals were skipped. However, most students made up for the missed meals by mak- ing an after-school raid of the refrig- erator. Even those who missed no meal at all preferred the afterschool pastime of “pigging out.

Being a sophomore and on a varsity team seemed unbelievable. However, more and more sophomores were found competing on the varsity level. The myth of having to be a junior or senior as a prerequisite to be on a varsity team was quickly disappearing. Being a sophomore on a varsity team required a lot of work and determination. As varsity swimmer Linda Drewniak stated, " I have been in swimming for 4Yi years, and also there are long practices. " Many sophomores were surprised and honored at being chosen for varsity. The pressures of being a sophomore on a varsity team didn ' t seem to stem from being kidded by juniors or seniors, but rather just the hard work needed to stay on varsity. As varsity tennis player Christi DiCarlo explained, " You have to practice a lot, play your best and work hard to stay in top position. " On some teams if you make it, you are automatically on varsity, such as cross country, track, golf and gymnas- tics. Miss Brenda Cof field, girls athletic director, explained, " Some of these teams don ' t have quite enough partici- pation for a junior varsity and varsity, but another factor is the financial reason. " One of the reasons she felt more soph- omores were getting on varsity teams was the better training at lower levels and the more available opportunities. Unbelievable as it seems, after this year, these sophomores can look for- ward to two more full years of playing on varsity teams. Breaking the myth that sophomores can ' t be on a varsity sport, Jean Cerejewski practices on the team for an upcoming gymnastic meet.

It ' s great being a soph- omore; I ' m finally catching on! I ' ll never forget how embarrassed I used to get as a freshman at the pep rallies! I never knew when or what to say when the cheerleaders did “Battle Cry " . Finally I am ready for them and yell “victory " as loud as everyone else! I found out a lot of other things my sophomore year. For example, I bought some carnations for my " sweetie " in- stead of myself, which I was dumb enough to do last year! I even caught on and put a few Christmas wishes in the Crier. The most useful thing I learned was how to get around this place. I used to have so much trouble finding the Book- store, the Pub, or the NBEL! But now, whenever I hear an announcement to go to one of those places, I can find it on my own, rather than ask an upperclass- man! Sophomores could be in many more clubs mainly because they finally knew which clubs did what. It was also easier to advance in sports. Another great thing about being a sophomore is that we finally got to work on a class float! I had lots of fun, and we won second place for our first try! The only disadvantage I found being a sophomore was that I could no longer plead " freshman innocence " ! Teachers expected us to be on time and not come in with the excuse- " ! got lost! " Oh well, at least I finally caught on! Dressed as Harpo Marx during Spirit Week, soph- omore Cathy Reppa discusses homecoming activi- ties over an ice cream sandwich lunch.

In some cases, the middle class in a high school can be compared to the middle child. In the past, junior year has been a year of preparations and accomplishments. However, the Junior Class began many new trends. Many be- lieved that through lack of enthusiasm the accomplishments were lost. After being shifted to a new sponsor every year, the 443 members of the Ju- nior Class became the responsibility of Mr. John McDonald, Power Mecha nics teacher. When Homecoming rolled around, the class, with the help of offi- cers Tom Bosch, president; Leann Lasky, vice-president; and Amy White, secre- tary-treasurer, finished third in the float competition with Cookie Monster and the theme " Crunch ' Em ' Til They Crumble. " The biggest and most expensive project for the juniors was sponsoring Prom. Money was raised for the financ- ing of Prom through carwashes and bakesales and through the proceeds from the Powder Puff football game. A dance featuring " Shadow Fax " also con- tributed to the Prom fund. Selling can- dles during sophomore year was a great asset to the finances. Plans began smoothly as the date was set, May 13, and " Just You and Me " was chosen as the theme. Tom stated, " The only truly big problem we had experi- enced was decorations. The reason for this was lack of enthusiasm. " Throughout the year the class was plagued by much criticism. Tom com- mented, " What really irked me is that members in our own class and others, who had no right to criticize our class, had made their opinions well known. If they had any real complaints, they could have either said something to me or helped straighten it out themselves. " So, like the middle child often is in a family, the Junior Class was subject to much criticism. As the year came to an end, however, many still found that being an upperclassman did have its many advantages. Junior Class officers Amy White, secretary-trea- surer; Tom Bosch, president; and Leann Lasky, vice-president, examine their new class rings.

" Having your last name begin with " Z " isn ' t easy, it ' s not like being an H or an M because you ' re always last in everything. " Usually teachers make seating charts in alphabetical order, so I always sit in back. I get my report card last, I ' m al- ways last when roll is called and I was one of the last for counseling. In chem- istry my tag number was last and last lockers are usually assigned to me. I know Karen Zygmunt, Kelly Zatorski, Mark Zielazny, John Zajac, Jeff Zajac and Mark Zacock have most of the same problems I do, " commented junior Mary Zeldenrust. Seating arrangements in classes and the pronunciation of their names are two of the biggest problems confronting Z ' s. Mary Zeldenrust said that she " usually ends up sitting in the back of the room when they happen to run out of desks. " Name pronunciations, the second big problem, causes Mary much embarrass- ment. " I ' ve heard everything from Zel- lenrust to Zedenclust. Usually the first day of school teachers say Mary Z . . . " There are some advantages to having a " Z " last name. According to Mary, people usually remember her last name because it ' s so different. And on rare oc- casions when teachers do things back- ward alphabetically, she gets to go first! Due to a lack of chairs, junior Kelly Zatorski sits on the cabinets in the back of her English room while working on her term paper. 216 Juniors John Gastreich Jody Gbur Kerry Gerken Rich Geyer Gregg Gilboe Greg Gill Scott Gillespie Beth Glass Abe Gomez Dan Gonzales David Goodman Sue Gorman Jane Gomy Mark Graden Tom Granack Mary Grantner Leslie Gray Wendy Gray Meg Gregg Madelein Gregor Ken Groves Joan Grunewald Jill Haase Sally Haines David Hamacher Mark Hanusin Bill Harder Vicky Harding Diane Harrigan Greg Hartoonian Kevin Hassellof Tim Hayes Jill Heffley Donna Heller Brad Hemingway Dave Hensley Alice Henson Juniors 217 Jeanne Higgins Steve Hoiseth Mike Hollingsworth Cindy Horvath Kim Houk Beverly Hudec Mary Humpfer Sue Hunt Keith Hunter Kathy Hurley Karen Janocek Lisa Janke Ronnie Jankovich Sarah Janovsky Hunter Johnson Kyle Johnson Robin Johnson John Kaiser Drew Kaminsky Sandra Kamradt Kurt Kappes Jeff Kaster Chris Katris Daniel Keim Jaci Kelchak Mary Kerr Jeff Kessler Judy Kessler Jane Kiernan Renny Kistler Beth Klyczek Lisa Kmak Peter Knapik Mark Knesek Larry Knight Kim Knutson Kristi Kocal Dan Koetteritz Sharon Kolodziej Sue Kopas Mike Korfiatis Susan Kovacich Lori Krumrei Marcia Kuck Gery Kulesa Deborah Kumicich Michele Kurteff Jim Kwasny Paul Kyriakides Charles Labitan Richard Lammering Mark Lane Diane La ngford Susie Lanman Stan Larmee Leann Lasky Victoria Learn Karon Leary Judity Leask Bernice Lee Harold Lefkofsky Tom Leibengood 218 Juniors Nick Lekas Andrew Lippie Linda Luberda Ann Luerssen Jon Luksich Charles Macenski Tom Mackovyak Paul Maginot Terri Mahala Linda Mandel Carolyn Manley John Mansueto Scott Marcus Chris Markovich Cheryl Maroc Phillip Maroc Connie Mason Nancy May Sharon Mazanek Steve Mazur Robert McAllister Michael McCoy Edward McFadden Elaine McKenna Scott McMahon Jim Megremis Anne Melby Susan Mellon Mark Mihalo Laura Miller Scott Miller Mike Millies Life uias an much simpler as a freshman Pressure, Pressure, Pressure!!! This is the only word that sticks in a person ' s mind since he ' s been a junior. First it ' s a Pre-Scholastic Aptitude Test, then a Scholastic Aptitude Test and now ... a Term Paper!!! All I hear from my parents is: " Now you ' re a junior, Fred, so you ' re going to have to really work now! " This could be a similar situation many juniors found themselves in. Pressure played a big part in school life and sometimes in home life. " A lot of things including parents, teachers, work and school all add up to tension which even- tually leads to pressure, " stated Kelly Sa- mels. Some juniors also indicated that junior year pressured them more than past years. Many said that there were a lot of pressures concerning college. " You have all kinds of worries. You have to decide what college you are going to attend. You worry about whether or not you will be accepted. You have to worry about your grades. It all just builds up " , com- mented Judi Leask. Debbie Check sum- med it up by saying, " You have to make the grades to get into a college. " Term papers also contributed to the pressures of being a junior. Shereen Ro- sario stated, " term papers are just the thing that brings about the last straw. It ' s all we need before SAT ' s!!! " Home pressures consisted of anything from being forced to keep your room clean to curfews. Many parents also pressured their kids to keep up their grades and have their college picked. Trying to compete with older brothers and sisters was another problem which caused much pressures and tensions. Several people relieved their anxiety and pressures on the weekend. Patty Sharp expressed, " I wait until the week- end comes, and I have as much fun as I can and try to forget about school. " Juniors strove to have a positive atti- tude towards school, pressures and par- ents. So, even though pressures did build up inside a lot of juniors, they somehow tried to cope and live with them. In a tense moment of frustration, junior Jim Szcze- paniak releases built up hostilities on his pencil, while attempting to organize all his notes in prepa- ration for his term paper.

" Gosh, I can ' t believe it. My first day of school as a junior! I wonder who my locker partner is! Let ' s see, 36 . . . 42 . . . 10. Oh, she ' s already been here, AND SHE TOOK THE BOTTOM SHELF! That RAT! Who is this? Let ' s see . . . Oh, Susie Jones, alright! Oh well, I ' m taller than she, so I guess it ' s only fair to let her have the bottom shelf. Sharing a locker was one of the expe- riences of being a junior. Many students didn ' t seem to mind it, but there were a few who couldn ' t handle it. One common problem among locker partners was deciding who would get the lower shelf of the locker. Many times a 5 ' 1 " person could be seen trying to reach into the 57 " upper shelf. How- ever, these problems were usually re- solved by the partners themselves. " Hey man, give me my pen back! " was a common saying among the part- ners who didn ' t always get along. But that was usually worked out also. In some rare cases, one partner would occasionally get papers of a folder caught in the locker door— jamming it. And then there were the partners who would stroll away from the locker leav- ing it open for its contents to be exam- ined by passers-by. Stuffing two big, bulky winter coats into one, small locker was an additional problem. Boots, gloves and hats only added more complications. Sometimes students ' lockers were at an inconvenient location, so they dou- bled up with other people. Sometimes five people shared one locker. Most of the time the partners rarely saw each other. This may have been good for some, but others who devel- oped a friendship, it was a little unfortu- nate. But, they compensated by leaving a little note saying " Hi " or something similar. " Gosh, my last day of being a junior! I can ' t believe it! I ' m really gonna be lonely next year without a locker partner. Let ' s see, 36 ... 42 ... 10 .. . Oh darn it, Susie ' s gone already. I won ' t be able to see her until next year! I can ' t even leave her a note! Well, I hope I have a locker near her ' s next year! While her partners wait for their turn, junior Nancy Thornberry reaches into the crowded locker to get her books. 220 Juniors Linda Phipps Dawn Plesha Kathy Plesha Karen Plunkett Brian Polak Barb Pontius Michael Prater Pam Prendergast Lisa Prus Jerry Pruzin Erin Przybyl Cathie Przybysz Denise Punak Dan Rakos Elizabeth Ramirez John Ramos Brian Rasmus Janice 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 Shereen Rosario Lisa Roth Joyce Rovai John Rudakas Doug Ryan Jeff Saksa Cheryl Salanty Kelly Samels John Sannito Mark Scheffel Kim Schuljak Doug Schwartz Meg Schwerin Rick Sears Mike Sebenste Pam Seefurth Jayne Selby Steve Serna Shari Sferruzza Rob Sharkey Patty Sharp Suzy Shaw Evie Shoemaker Thomas Sidor Cary Silverman Sheryl Simmons Shona Sinisi Dave Sipkosky Jeff Skorupa Diane Skurka Janine Slivka Caryn Smith Ethan Smith Jim Smith Mike Smith Kathy Snow Donald Sobolenski Juniors 221 Termpaper-- uinrth a man tunrds? For most juniors the start of second semester not only meant that the school year was half over, new classes would be starting, and spring was not too far off, but it also marked the time to begin working on an English term paper. The words “term paper " tend to put the average junior in shock. Before any- thing could be done, a topic had to be picked. Most teachers required that stu- dents have their topics checked to avoid a later problem of having one that was too broad to make a five to eight page paper. Endless hours were spent researching in libraries. Not only did all those books make the average student look like the smart kid in the class, but they also built up muscles from carrying them around. Taking notes seemed like a never end- ing task. Some teachers required any- where from 80-100 note cards. The ac- tual writing took many hours. Typing and including footnotes was yet another task. Vicky Learn felt that she didn ' t really feel pressured by doing a term pa- per because " time wise, the te achers knew what they were doing. " Most teachers gave their classes five to seven weeks to complete the papers. Unlike in past years, term papers were required to be done entirely during class time. Most note taking and writing could not be done outside of the classroom. One reason for this was to make sure students did a paper and didn ' t just copy a friend ' s old paper. “I don ' t mind doing a term paper because it doesn ' t take up much of my time since we did it all dur- ing class, " commented Cindy Horvath. A variety of topics were chosen by the juniors. A popular general area of re- search was different problems that teen- agers and young adults must face. Miss Diane Kubacki, English teacher, felt that doing a term paper " facilitates working in a ' process ' system of writing. " Reasons for having to do a term paper include teaching students how to orga- nize their thoughts and assemble facts and information into logical form. Also, if students plan on attending college, it is a big help in learning how to write pa- pers. Cindy felt that writing a term paper should be required because " it helps you to learn how to write papers. If you worked along with the class and had most things done on time, the writing of the paper was not as difficult as it may have first seemed. " Students were graded on a number of different things such as turning in a working outline, bibliography card listing the sources to be used for the paper, note cards that were taken daily, the rough draft of the paper and the final copy. Most students received B ' s and C ' s for the work they put in on the paper, according to Miss Kubacki.

Senior year— the year most students look forward to. Most parents tell their kids it will be one of the most exciting years of their lives. Well, no matter what the year proved to be for the 430 se- niors, in most cases, it had been a long awaited experience. The year was highlighted with a first place Homecoming float. After two pre- vious losses and weeks of hard work, Big Bird and Oscar with the theme “Can the Pirates " captured first place for the se- niors. Mr. David Russell, English teacher and Senior Class sponsor, felt that win- ning the float competition and the Pow- der Puff football game boosted the Se- nior Class spirit. Upholding tradition, the senior girls SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS: Mike Koufos, Vice- President; Charles Weinberg, President; Carrie Melind, Secretary-Treasurer; and Mr. David Rus- sell, Class Sponsor. defeated the junior girls 34-6 in the an- nual Powder Puff football game. Though most of the profits went to the juniors, some of the money that the game brought in was added to the Senior Class treasury. To raise even more money, a dance was held in February featuring the group “Mariner. " Profits totalled approximately $520. This was the only major money raising event of the entire year. The seniors were also in charge of the annual Spring Carnival. The booth they set up was even more money for the class. The Senior Class officers, Charles Weinberg, President; Mike Koufos, Vice- President; and Carrie Melind, Secretary- Treasurer, were in charge of choosing the colors of graduation caps and gowns and also ordering graduation announce- ments for the class. Over spring vacation approximately 40 seniors took a trip to Ocho Rios, Ja- macia. The cost was $280 per student. Graduation arrived on June 4. It came too soon for some, and not quick enough for others. However, like the year in general it was long awaited. SHERRILL BLACK: Choir 1-4; Track CTO 3.

Now that college lays ahead and I ' m getting a typewriter for graduation, I have no idea how to type. Boy, do I wish I would have stayed in class. What about that ridiculous red and white checked shirt that my mother made me wear my Sophomore year? Ev- eryone in the school from the freshmen to the janitors laughed at that shirt. One teacher even told me that it reminded him of the tablecloths at Mama Puntillos. Boy, do I wish I would have put out an extra $10 to get a new shirt and tell my mother the other one burned accidentally. Then there was the time that I just couldn ' t resist the offer of joining in on a snowball fight my Junior year. It was alot of fun until one snowball hit the princi- pal in the ear. Getting suspended for three days just didn ' t seem worth the excitement. And, of course, there was the time during second semester of my Senior year that I realized that I needed ten more credits to graduate. After having eight study halls in the past three years, I only had room for one more class. I wish I would ' ve kept better track of my credits. I wish I wouldn ' t have waited until my Senior year to go to a pep rally or dance. And I wish I would have had an older brother to tell me to get more involved in school activities and who to date or not to date. I wish I could do my four years of high school all over again. That way I wouldn ' t make the same mistakes twice, and, not only that, I could also relive all those pep rallies, dances, parties . . . 226 Seniors STEVEN BUNTING: Football 1-4.

It seems so strange for it to be the last time con- sidering the thousands of times I passed through it during the past four years. For that matter, this is probably the last time I ' ll ever be in the school. Senior year sure does consist of alot of lasts except I never really thought about it until now. But now that I think back I remember all those senior girls crying hysterically at the last football game. At the time I thought they were upset because we had lost the game or else they were fighting with their boyfriends. I guess it never occurred to me that they were To rid her English Literature notebook of old pa- pers, senior Pam Hesterman cleans out her locker on the last day of school. crying because it was our last football game. Then all those seniors attacked our float after we had won in the float com- petition, fighting each other for certain flowers. I just thought that they were in shock because we had finally got first place. Now I realize that all they wanted was to keep the flowers for posterity be- cause it was our last float. During the last week of school when I saw seniors kissing their lockers I just thought it was a new fad. Or when I saw people walking into the volleyball net on purpose, then backing up and doing it again, I just thought they were having hallucinations. Now I understand, they were kissing their lockers good-bye and walking into the net for old time ' s sake because it was our last week of school. Oh no, I ' ve been sitting here. reflecting on all the lasts of my senior year and my row is up there getting their diplomas while I sit here all by myself. Everyone is laughing at me— mom, dad, the whole graduating class— everyone! Well, my most and last embarrassing moment! Seniors 229 ‘Hey, ynu are in 1TIY parking spot ' " Boy, I can ' t wait until I ' m a senior, then I can drive to school! Won ' t that be great?, " exclaimed Frieda Freshman. " It ' s not that big of a thing. I hear sometimes it can be a really big hassle. " explained Stella Skeptical. " Why do you say that? " asked Frieda. " Didn ' t you hear all the stories that happened to some seniors who drove to school? For instance A snowy day created a problem for Kevin Seliger. " I was coming to school in really bad weather. There was someone already stuck in the entrance to the South parking lot. I thought I would en- ter through the exit way. My car got stuck in a snow drift. I helped the guy stuck in the entrance way move his car. By that time, my car was buried under snow. All I could do was leave it there. Finally, a tow truck had to pull it out. " Carol Landay also had a bad driving experience. As she stopped at the corner of Fisher and Columbia, her car stalled. As she sat there, some of her classmates, and a police car passed her. A few of them made gestures at her. Greg Muntean experienced a funny parking situation. " I parked my car in the back of the school by the music room. The office asked me to move it because I was blocking a Pepsi delivery truck, so I parked in the teachers lot, and ' they told me, if I parked there again, I wouldn ' t be allowed to drive to school for six weeks. That wouldn ' t have been so bad if the office hadn ' t called my name over the loud speaker telling me that I have to move my car right away. " " So, you see Frieda, being able to drive to school isn ' t as glamorous as it may seem. You can get stuck, towed away, lose your parking space " Because the South parking lot failed to be cleared of snow, a number of senior boys give up their lunch hour to help a friend remove her car from a snow bank.

RICK JOHNS ‘Htnu can I pass the time? ' While walking home day after day, many seniors think of the various hob- bies they could engage in to help pass the time. While many seniors have hob- bies such as sewing, reading and playing hockey, many more have out-of-the-or- dinary pastimes. For instance, Sharon Hughes started dancing when she was seven. “My or- thopedic surgeon suggested I start danc- ing because I was born with club feet (a condition where feet are turned in and dancing turns one ' s feet out). " Sharon pointed out that it improves her posture, coordination and rhythym. The type of dancing she includes in her hobby are character. Modern Jazz, Ballet and Pointe. Bands formed to add an extra touch to hobbies. Kevin Seliger, Judson Strain, Dave Trump and Greg Nagle formed the band " Nite Flite. " Practicing four days a week, “Nite Flite " played at Omni 41 , Highland High School and Purdue Calu- met Campus. “Shadow Fax " included members Kerry Mott, Dave Dreyfus, Keith Cummings and Cary Silverman. " Shadow Fax " found " jamming very en- joyable " , according to Dave. " Shadow Fax " played at many parties and school dances. Dave Drajeske engaged in the hobby of collecting snakes and turtles. Dave, who has two Burmese Pythons, picked up his interests in snakes by working at snake exhibits at shopping centers. Be- sides keeping his animals in various places such as glass cages, aquariums and plastic wading pools, he fed them live or dead food once a week. So no matter what hobby they pur- sued, most seniors could help pass the time, hopefully, in an interesting way. To gain experience and earn some money, senior Keith Cummings performs with his band “Shadow Fax " at a school dance. 232 Seniors RUTH ANN JOHNSEN DAVID JOHNSON GAYLE DAWN JOHNSON: Swim Team 1-4; NHS 3,4; Swimming GTO 1-4; Let- terwomen Club 2-4; Band 1.

My twin sister accepted two dates for tonight, so I have to go in her place with Mike. He ' ll never be able to tell us apart but this is absolutely humiliating! It ' s going to be terrible, I know I ' m going to have the worst time! " Filling in for their twin on a date is only one of many unusual circumstances that twins encounter. Confusion on the part of classmates as to which is which gives many twins a chance to play harmless jokes and laugh secretly together. As the twins grow older, they find al- ways having someone around to talk to becomes a distinct advantage. " It ' s like having a brother and a best friend all in one. You can totally relate to each other and compare similar experiences, " stated Charles Weinberg. An unusual in- cident James Weinberg has encountered in connection with being a twin is telep- athy between brothers. On many occa- sions both James and Charles have found themselves thinking the same thought or song. The individual twins are constantly being compared to their brother or sis- ter, whether indentical or fraternal. Many people feel that because they are so close they do the same things the same ways, and sometimes forget that they are individuals. " I don ' t like always being compared to my twin sister, Cathy, " ex- pressed Sue Etling, " We have our own feelings, emotions, and th oughts. Twins are also the victims of curious people and questions, such as ' How does it feel to be a twin? ' ' which one is smarter ' and so on. " Among the six sets of twins in the Se- nior Class, Mike and Paul Wolak hold the record for being the heaviest set of twins ever born at St. Margaret ' s Hospi- tal. Elaine and Virginia Miller ' s mother belongs to the Mother of Twin ' s Club entitling Elaine and Virginia to partici- pate in fashion shows just for twins. It also resulted in newspaper articles being written about them. One set of twins, Farshid and Farshad Chamanara were even from Iran. All in all, being a twin is an interesting and different experience. " Twins never have the problem of forgetting one an- other ' s birthdays, " commented Edward Walczak, " and although most twins share clothes, Jan and I don ' t because we don ' t wear the same size. " " Gosh— Mike is so cute and I had the best time tonight. We ' re going out again tomorrow. Oh no, he thinks I ' m Karla but I ' m really Marla. There ' s no way I can tell him that I ' m Marla not Karla. What am I going to do? Oh well, my dear sister and I will just have to change indentities. That means trading Driver ' s Licenses, Social Security cards, bed- rooms, classes, friends . . A few minutes free time between classes gives twins James and Charles Weinberg the chance to improve their appearance.

All high schools have the opportunity to choose one or more members of their sports teams participating in a state tour- nament to go up for the Mental Attitude Award. The coach submits the names, incorporating their achievements to an Executive Council made up of members of the Indiana High School Athletic As- sociation. The names are submitted on the recommendation of the principal and the other coaches of the individual school. The Executive Council based the se- lection for the winner of the award on the mental attitude, athletic ability, lead- ership and scholarship of each person. Kim won the Mental Attitude Award for her participation on the volleyball team. " I didn ' t even know I was up for it until after the State meet at Muncie Northside; when they announced my name. I was really happy and totally sur- prised, " stated Kim. The winner of the award for Boys Ten- nis was senior Greg Oslan. " I was sur- prised, shocked and absolutely para- lyzed. I never expected it, I was up against such tough competition, " ex- claimed Greg. " It ' s the top honor the IH- SAA gives out, and it ' s the only individ- ual award that they give out at the State Tournament. It compares to the Trester Award given for basketball, " added C Not only was this the first year Mun- ster ever received the Mental Attitude Award, but we won it twice. Mental Attitude Award winners Greg Oslan and Kim Duhon don ' t confine their ability to books and the halls of school, but they also excel on the vol- leyball and tennis courts.

Seniors $pend Savings " Doggone . . . $6.50, Oh Fudge . . . it ' s going to cost me $25, Holy Cow ... an- other $60, For the Love of Pete . . . this $100 expense is the absolute last straw. " I never realized being a senior was go- ing to make me empty my piggy bank. And I ' ve been saving for eighteen years. I remember how thrilled I was with my weekly three cent allowance. I was sav- ing up to pay for my $12,000 college education but instead I wasted it on se- nior pictures, caps and gowns, SAT and ACT expenses, college application and housing deposits and of course, graduation. First there was senior pictures. Even though the prices were varied, it ended up being a big expense no matter what package deal you bought. My mom said it was worth it though, because now she has my portrait hanging in our living room. As if that wasn ' t bad enough, I had to take either the Scholastic Apti- tude Test or the American College Test before I could send in my college appli- cations. At least with senior pictures I got something for my money, all I got from the test was a sleepless night and a loss of $3.50 for SATs and $7.50 for ACTS. But it all paid off when I could finally send in my college applications. Was that an Expense! Most colleges required an application fee of any where between $10 to $25. That didn ' t even include the housing deposits which was an addi- tional cost of $10 to $50. Outside of school there were the nu- merous dates intending to impress many of the girls, which ended up costing me from $10 to $20 each time. Every once in awhile another formal dance would come up. Because I was a senior, it was unthinkable to miss Homecoming and Prom for the last time. At least one of the girls I wined and dined asked me to Chi which was easier on my wallet since she had to pay for the ticket and pictures. In order to get anywhere on the week- ends, I had to have a car. Along with the car came the innumerable gas bills, re- pair bills and insurance payments. Sometimes I wondered if fighting with dad for the family car would have been alot less complicated and alot cheaper. Towards the end of the year I had the opportunity to go on the traditional se- nior trip. It cost between $300 to $350, not including food, but it was an experi- ence. Following the senior trip came the highlight of the senior year— Graduation, which included the ordering of in- vitations, cap and gown rental, the new outfit, presents for friends and the grad- uation party, of course. Following graduation, I was often seen in the Savings and Loan Bank. Guess what service I was using! To assure a proper fit for his graduation gown.

These students were chosen by faculty members on the eligibility requirements of leadership, scholarship, overall re- sponsibility, and class rank. The program, sponsored by the Amer- ican Legion Auxiliary, lets students learn the basic principles of state government, by giving them the chance to run for of- fice. Officials, ranging from mayors to state governors, were elected to each of the 15 cities, five counties, and State it- self. “This competition helps one to real- ize that you can ' t always be on top, and to cooperate with others and learn to live with our success and failure, " said Katy. " We learned a lot about the weak- nesses and strengths of the political sys- tem. It was a great learning experience, " commented Mike. Recalling memories of learning about the govern- ment and making many new friends, seniors Dave Waxman, Mike Hertz, Katy Flynn, and Jackie Dal Santo look over some of the notes on Hoosier State. Not pictured are Kim Duhon and Mike Koufos. KAREN POPIELA: GTO; OEA; French Club; Drama Club. BILL POTASNIK: Tennis Team 1-4; Let- termen Club 1-4.

I ' m sorry I mean the job inter- view with Mr. Eisenhower. I think I ' m a bit early ... an hour and a half? Yes, well, you see, my watch is a little fast. Sure, I ' ll just sit down here ... is this chair OK? Or should I take the green one? It doesn ' t matter? Oh, OK. Thank you. " This may be a typical conversation be- tween a senior and his (hopefully) future employer. Many seniors got out of school early to go to work. The most popular job was working at McDonalds or other similar fast food restaurants. The average pay ranged from $2.60 to $3.00 per hour. Jobs included bagging fries to taking orders. Why work? Some work to save for col- lege expenses, while others want to save for the extra cash for cars and stereos. " • • .Yes, huh, I can start work anytime? What?? Oh, my gosh! You mean I ' ve got the job? Gee, I don ' t know what to say! Yes, well thank you, sir. Oh, I just never thought in a million ... oh yes, I ' ll calm down. Tomorrow? Tomorrow at 8? (gee, tomorrow ' s my tennis game!) Uh, sure, I ' ll be here bright and early. No, not an hour and a half. Thank you, Mr. Lincoln . . . uh, I mean Mr. Eisenhower. (I knew he had a president ' s name!) Quickly trying to think of the right thing to say, senior Eric Compton goes through the rituals of job interviews. 242 Seniors JAMES SAKSA: Football 1-4; Baseball 1-4 JOHN MATTHEW SARTAIN: Baseball 2- 4; Hockey 4; Scuba Club 3,4 MELINDA SCHEFFEL DONNA SCHELL ROSE MARIE SCHERER JOANNE SCHMUESER DAVID SCHOLL TAMMY SCHOLTE ROSEMARIE SCHREIER SUZANNE SCOTT: French Club 1-4 (Pres. 3,4); Thespians 3,4; Drama Club 1- 4; AFS 1-3; CRIER 4; Project Biology 3.

I heard they got those shorts with the 78 on them to show us underclassmen their seniority. Boy, I wish I was a senior. Think of what it would be like. They get to drive to school, they have early release and best of all, they have Senior ditch day! Just think, your whole class ditching! What heaven! And then there ' s all those grad- uation festivities. Imagine, a party with champagne fountains and caviar. And the best part about all of that is no more school. There ' s another senior. I think I ' ll give him a dirty look. Hey, let go of my arm. What do you mean " try that again? " I did it once. Gee, what a hothead. Look at him walking down the hall like he ' s Robert Redford. I think he looks like Daffy Duck. Well, I guess being a senior is pretty glamorous and all, but being a freshman is pretty good too. I mean, look at what we have to look forward to doing. In just three more years, I ' ll be a senior too. I can drive my car to school, have an official ditchday, get out early in the spring to get a head start on my tan, and even have some sort of a symbol to prove that I am a senior.

I think it will be an interesting week and a very worthwhile experience. " Phil Kowalczyk ' s reaction to being chosen to attend the Presidential Class- room for Young Americans was similar to those of Jackie Dal Santo, Kim Du- hon, Mike Hertz, Dalia Sidabras, and Dave Waxman. They were chosen by the Social Studies and Guidance depart- ments on their interest in government and scholastic abil ity. These five seniors spent a week in Washington, D.C., to learn about the or- ganizational structure and human ele- ments that shape the Federal Govern- ment ' s operation. Seminars, films, discussions, and meetings with politi- cians occupied most of the students time. They also visited landmarks, went to the theater, and attended a gradu- ation banquet. For an entire week, Washington, D.C., was more than just words in the seniors government books. Seniors Mike Hertz, Dave Waxman, Kim Duhon, Phil Kowalczyk, Jackie Dal Santo, and Dalia Si- dabras discuss their Presidential Classroom with Mrs. Phyllis Braun, Guidance Counselor.

Spread by spread it was mailed to the Montgomery Plant of Herff Jones Year- books, and there over 1250 books were printed. However, the staff couldn ' t really have managed it alone without the support and encouragement of others. Primarily we would like to thank Mr. George King- sley, Herff Jones Sales Representative, for his continued guidance throughout the year. We would also like to thank whoever it was that was responsible for a certain February blizzard that gave us a few extra " snowed in " days to finish an unfinished cover. Then, of course, we would like to thank all the patient, thoughtful people who had the stamina to put up with us, namely Mr. and Mrs. George Kurteff for hosting the PARA- GON CRIER Christmas party, the par- ents who lent their houses for those all- night workshops, and especially we would like to thank every parent of ev- ery staff member for understanding the late nights and the long hours. Most of all we would like to thank Mrs. Nancy Hastings for the patience, guidance and touch of humor she gave us throughout the year. The 1978 PARAGON was printed on 80 pound Bordeauz paper with each section designed in a distinct style. Headlines: Activities, 36 pt. FORMATT 5371; Academics, 24 pt. FORMATT 5609 with a 36 pt. dingbat; Organiza- tions, 36 pt. FORMATT 5385; Athletics, 42 pt. FORMATT 5568 with 14 pt. Op- tima blurbs. Ads, 24 pt. Optima. All body copy was 10 pt. Optima. All captions were 8 pt. Optima. Four color was used in the opening flat, while spot color 300 Process Cyan, 100 Process Yel- low, and 375 Lime appeared through- out the book. Endsheets are ice blue. Finally, we would like to thank every- one who in any way contributed to PARAGON. Whether it was just smiling for your senior picture, buying an ad, being a patron, or typing 649 names for the index, it was all appreciated. As he signals to his team.

Can you give me any details about that spaceship that just took off? " " What spaceship? " " The one that just whizzed over the town, sweeping off 27 rooftops, eight crabapple trees, one French • poodle, MacDonald ' s Golden Arches, and three little old ladies. " " O-o-o-oh, that spaceship. Space- ship?? No, that was just my friend Zack ' s ride back to . . . uh, wherever it was he came from. He was a foreign exchange student who stayed with me (sniff, sniff). " Why are you crying, kid? Was one of those little old ladies your granny? " " No, I was just thinking of how much I ' m going to miss Zack (sniff). It sure was an experience going through the year with him. At first it was kind of hard for him, but I kept telling him that he had to either MAKE IT OR BREAK IT. " " Kid, I ' m looking for an exclusive on moonmen and flying saucers. What ' s all this ' Make it or Break it ' business? " " Well, that ' s kind of our philosophy around here. By ' Make it ' we mean set- ting targets and reaching your goals. By ' Break it ' we mean breaking a few records, traditions. Zack and I saw a lot of it this year. I remember talking to him about it just before he left " " Sure, Zack, I ' ll write you as soon as I find the three-pronged glumphixalon you lost. But don ' t worry about that now. Things usually work out as long as you don ' t give up. . But you should know that after experiencing an entire year here, watching people both make it and break it. " " Affirmative. I will maintain faith that aforementioned glumphixalon shall be recovered. However, I prefer to medi- tate upon the many events that high- lighted my visitation here. " " Yeah, Zack, I really know what you mean. It will be a long time before I for- get how rowdy we got at all the games and meets, and how proud we were to see the new collection of trophies our teams brought back home. " " Nonetheless, my memory bank com- putes an inconsistency in tradition. Did not the Aquanoids fail to retain their metallic relic of reward? " " Oh, you mean the Boys Swim team not being able to bring home the State trophy and title after they had captured first for the past five years. The flu sure didn ' t help us. Oh well, I think eighth place is still pretty good.
