Region where you are going and that you have arrived . . . Pride says it all CONTENTS Opening 2 Come join Us Student Life 0 1 Did It!

Cathy takes pride not only in her own class, but in the achievements and accomplishments of the students around her. It just hdpp I ' ve been alive forever and am present at all levels of competition; I ' ve put the tears and the laughter together ...lam Pride and I say it all. A failing grade in chemistry or an " A " in Calculus, a final cut from tryouts or a part in the fall play " The Mouse That Roared, " an unexpected loss to Griffith or a rival victory over Highland-all are aspects of Mustang life. Yet within each lies a distinct characteristic of Mustang Pride. Mustang Pride . . . it ' s hard to put into words. It ' s an unexplainable feeling that bursts forth and spreads. It has it ' s high points and low points. It isn ' t organized, doesn ' t need to be planned, it just instantaneously ha ppens. On the first day of school it ' s a drag to think about opening textbooks and taking tests once again, but to see your friends and catch up on summer gossip brings back a small sense of pride. By the second week of school the tests and pressures have arrived and individually you are down. But then Mustang Pride takes over. Homecoming with its Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck regenerates the spirit. It gives you an underlying feeling that keeps you going. Only seconds left in the game. Coach Maicher points out the strategy they should use for a victory. Despite his injury, junior )ohn Remmers continued with his match and came out victorious. In their line-up for the final song of Homecoming the band plays their farewell to Mickey and his friends. 2 Given class lime to hurries through her work junior Pam math homework. Thomae Senior Jim Rednour with the rest of the plays a medley in I trombone section. Putting some finishing touches on her painting, senior Annie Luerssen admires the fall scene. Taking time out from lecture, Mr. Bryan Young helps freshman Mindy Brandt with her Biology experiment. Taking advantage of the crisp October air, two girls dressed for Spirit Week eat their lunches outside on the bench. It keeps you going You can always tell when a point of pride is coming. Seahorses and silohuettes dangle from the cafeteria ceiling announcing Swimming Sectionals or the AFS International Night. But you don ' t only have to take pride in the big things. You can take pride in the little things too— getting your house T.P.ed for a big game, receiving a passing grade in Trig, making it to the final round in a speech meet, or playing 3 minutes and 23 seconds in a basketball game after your usual bench warming. Within the surrounding communities we have proven that we are good academically and athletically. We take pride in our success. But pride is not only for winning, it is for losing too. It is a quiet kind of pride that makes you want to keep going; that says, “There ' s always next time. " The achievements of Munster High ' s students, organizations, and teams have attracted attention not only locally but on state and national levels. Pride was here in the beginning and will never die. It has been alive forever. Pride says it all ... 4 Student Life Come join us Greetings! You are cordially invited starting September 5th at 8 a.m. to join 1700 students on a 180 day excursion. It ' s a must! Kids generally catagorize school as a boring place. Sure, you ' ve got to earn 38 credits to graduate but we won ' t let it get you down. You will be surprised at the different breed of students that roam the halls and corridors of the " brick palace " on Columbia Ave. Here the individual is given the chance to expand his interests while choosing from a variety of organizations. These events are what makes the school tick. Where as one boy gets involved with AFS, so he can be with his friends in an organized manner, a girl can join the nationally known Speech Team so she can develop an interest that will lead to a possible law career. But it ' s not just the organizations that make Munster stand apart from the other schools. Known mainly for it ' s college prep program over 144 courses are offered which give every student a chance to find something that they can relate to. To help break the monotony of lectures and tests there are Friday night basketball games and dances, booths at the spring carnival, and spirit week during Homecoming. Each of these is what makes student life unique. Even though they may put on a front and pretend that they don ' t want to be here, underneath it all they really seem to enjoy it. A certain feeling or spirit is spread through the atmosphere. Could it be they pump pride through the air system? Determined to win the annual Powder Puff game, a tribe of juniors boost their morale by doing a " spir it " dance. Enjoying the music of Santa Fe, freshman Jayne Rovai and senior Susie Lanman bump in time. Although terribly frustrated with his typing skills, sophomore Kurt Halem strikes away with plans of improvement. Preparing for the annual carnation sale, seniors Lisa Moss and Cindy Bell decorate their advertisement campaign. Before the real activities begin, freshmen servers examine a painted plaster statue. Student Life 7 fuses: Here than just a ride tc si lie r I Picture yourself in a kiddie filled bus . . . screaming little sixth graders climb over the seats acting like crazed monkeys . . . flying rubber bands, wads of juicy bubble gum or slimy soggy spit wads surround your head as you dodge for protection . . . sitting squashed between the conversation of two middle school brats, you try to gather your sanity and ready yourself for another school day . . . Riding a bus to and from school seemed to be quite an embarassing ordeal for most seniors who had to do it. " I got kidded a lot by my friends who got to drive, but there is no car for me to use and the bus is the only means of transportation and I ' m not walking two and a half miles to school, " stated senior |ill Pasko. For the second year now, high school students were forced to ride on the bus with middle school students. One of the biggest complaints was listening to the screaming and yelling and not to mention the throwing of any object not nailed down. " In my bus they shot rubber bands, threw hats and grabbed combs out of girls ' pockets, " remarked senior Nancy Coltun. " I don ' t ever remember acting like that when I was younger. " At the beginning of the year the bus drivers tried to assign seats, but this idea never stuck. " I had to sit between two sixth graders, " explained Nancy. " It seemed like every little kid had an instrument and banged it through the isles and into my seat, " added Jill. So sitting in front seemed to be favored, for Nancy commented, " I sit in front because in the winter they throw snow and ice toward the back. " Jill added, " I sit in front so I can get out of there as fast as I can. " With the seniors sitting in front for one reason or another, most of them couldn ' t help notice the constant fights that went on in the back. " I liked to watch the kids fight but I didn ' t like to be involved in it, " stated Nancy. All of this went on, and more, and still no pleasant comment about bussing was heard all year long, just a sigh of relief as a senior took the very last trip home at the end of the year. 8 Busses In order to follow tradition, freshman Eva Zygmunt serves refreshments to the attending couples at the annual Homecoming dance. Engaged in the beat of the music, senior Kerri Dunn and her escort Mark Lenzo demonstrate some of the latest dance steps. Overwhelmed with surprise, senior Debbie Brandt shares her joy with a friend after being crowned Homecoming Queen. Caught in the spirit of Costume Day, senior Mary Kerr listens attentively to the lecture from her composition teacher. 10 Homecoming People celebrated his birthday from California to Florida . . . while others stayed up to the early hours of the morning just to say " Hi, " as Mickey Mouse passed through their town on his cross- nation train ride. Though Mickey didn ' t officially stop in Munster, he and his 50th birthday celebration stopped by to help celebrate homecoming activities. Prefaced by weeks of hard work, Mickey ' s world took form on Monday of Homecoming week. Spirit Week began the excitement with students dressing a ' bit ' differently. Nostalgia, Costume, jersey, and Red and White day were traditionally celebrated. However, a new day was added to change the pace. Following the nation-wide fad started by John Belushi and National Lampoon ' s " Animal House, " a popular movie, students robed the halls in draped togas, and ornate laurel wreaths. Those, who proved to be too timid to appear at school clothed only in a bed sheet, could still dress spiritedly by wearing wierd color combinations for the combined Flash-and-Clash or Toga day. Besides wearing pink polka-dot shirts and purple striped pants, students tried their luck at making the halls look colorful and spirit-oriented in the rebirth of the hall decorating contest. Amid colorful streamers, creative Walt Disney posters, immaginative class banners and literally thousands of balloons, students arrived at school to find something was different. Creativity and spirit was measured to decide the winners. FiVst place was captured with a three way tie by the Meet the leader of the theme... Mickey Mouse Walt Disney comes alive with the rebirth of old traditions and the forming of new ones All sophomore eyes are drawn to Mickey just before he reaches the judging stand and was later declared the winning float. Homecoming 11 Caught out of the water and into Geometry class, freshman Michelle Kelchak peeps over her folder to observe class time activities. In order to enhance the flavor of the chicken, sophomore Greg Benkovich sprays it down as part of his duties during the annual chicken barbecue. To make sure everything is in place and working properly, senior Bob Bukvich makes a final check on the Senior Class float. 12 Homecoming freshmen, sophomores, and seniors. With the big game approaching fast, the Senior Class took charge of the annual bonfire. Displaying class spirit, the junior girls dressed in their Powder Puff jerseys. With half portraying the Homecoming opponent, the Warriors, and half acting as the Mustangs, the girls held a scrimmage, with the Mustangs, of course, being victorious. The senior girls, with the aid of old bras, followed by running around the fire shrieking, " Senior girls support the Mustangs. " As they hurried to finish the incomplete floats, students scurried to finalize details before the 1:30 p.m. Friday deadline. As the last float entered the Christian Reformed Church parking lot, the judging began. With short delay, the marching band arrived and Ridge Road became the territory of the Homecoming parade. Soon after, the trike race, sponsored by the student government, pedaled off. The competition took place between the class officers and their sponsors, with the juniors capturing first place. This junior victory added points toward the spirit plaque. Speech and Debate Team members took a lesson in cooking as they held their annual chicken barbecue. Tickets were sold at $3.50 for adults and $1.75 for children. During the game, Goofy, Dumbo, and Mickey Mouse surveyed the field from behind the endzones but they still stood tall as the Mustangs unexpectedly fell to the Calumet Warriors, 12-7. The Homecoming Court was introduced while the band played, " When You Wish Upon a Star, " Meet the leader of the theme... Mickey Mouse lust before decorating the sophomore hall during Spirit Week, sophomores Amy Kiernan and Kristin Donnersberger put the finishing touches on their mural which added to their first place tie. Proving to be a true Mickey Mouse fan, sophomore Michele Rudzinski becomes a part of the Walt Disney atmosphere. Proud of their hard work, the junior students demonstrate class spirit by keeping company with Dumbo the elephant. Homecoming 11 Just a couple more flowers! Sophomores Bev Rompola and Lanai i Pool go through the tedious chore of making flowers for their float. Scanning through an animated Walt Disney book, juniors Julie Lanman and John Remmers get more involved in the theme of Homecoming. Homecoming Court: Freshmen Debbie Peterson and Paul Banas, junior Lynn Smith, seniors Mike Sebenste, Sharon Brian, Steve Faso, Susie Lanman, Rob Sharkey, Debbie Brandt, Brad Barnes, Sue Hunt, Dennis Wood, and sophomores Peggy Collins and Dane Johnson. Fenced in. Volunteering their " inside " services, juniors Sharon Kobus and Penny Shegich fasten flowers to form Dumbo ' s head. 14 Homecoming " Mickey Mouse Song, " and " It ' s a Small World. " Due to a tie in the Senior Class voting four senior princesses, instead of the usual three, joined the other class representatives. Nominated by their classes were seniors Debbie Brandt, Sharon Bryan, Sue Hunt, and Susie Lanman, junior Lynne Smith, sophomore Peggy Collins, and freshman Debbie Peterson. As Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto danced around the field, Debbie was crowned queen. The atmosphere rumbled with tension as the winners for float competition were declared. Sophomores " Club ' Em " captured first; seniors were awarded second place with " Knock ' Em Goofy, " and trailing with third was the juniors " Put ' Em Under Pressure. " For the closing of half- time, the first annual Spirit Award was given to the class which showed the most spirit during Homecoming Week. Although somewhat disappointed with the float results, the juniors captured the spirit plaque with honors. Saturday night, Disney world came alive as freshmen decorated the walls with murals of Disney characters. Music was provided by Fair Warning for $8 per couple. As the weekend came to a close, floats and decoration were destroyed and homecoming was over for another year until Monday . . . when just the solitary figures of Mickey and Minnie were left standing alone in the corner of the empty cafeteria. Meet the leader of the theme... Mickey Mouse With a flower clenched in her teeth, sophomore Niki Davis and senior escort Bill Rhind e njoy a dance while acting " Goofy. " Homecoming 15 Red shines through rain Despite over-sized jerseys, senior girls still managed to capture fifth straight title. While the senior line holds the juniors back, senior Liz Ramirez breaks through to score the winning conversion. As junior cheerleaders Randy Makowski and Brent Huard watch the game carefully, junior Sandy Luera yells some instructions to the defense. 16 Powder Puff Red and white jerseys tore through the halls, some hung down to the knees and the shoulders extended down to the elbows. For most girls who participated in the annual junior vs. senior powder puff football game, their borrowed jerseys seemed a bit overwhelming. But this wasn ' t the thing that slowed them down. Following weeks of practice, the girls psyched themselves up for the big game. Excitement buzzed through the halls, and tension was taunt. They were ready and fired up for action. But the atmosphere was soon dampened by rain, and rumors of postponement took over conversation. The rumor proved to be true, for the field remained pitch black throughout the night. After realizing they would still get a chance to show their hard work, the girls waited in anticipation for six days until the game finally got underway. Scoring touchdowns for juniors were Kim Torok and Pam Wiley. Senior Barb Pontius scored twice while Liz Ramirez carried two conversions. Keeping with tradition, seniors captured the title for the fifth year in a row with a score of 16-14. After all the dirt, grime, and fragrant perfume was washed out, the girls reluctantly handed over their beloved jerseys. PAGE MISSING PAGE MISSING Imagine a tiny country— a country smaller than the town of Munster. Picture a crazy leader with a band of " merry men. " Now think of this tiny country ' s " merry men " invading America-and winning! This mirage was more than just an " image " as Drama Club presented its annual fall play, " The Mouse That Roared, " Nov. 10 and 11, before a crowd of 955 people. " We chose this play because it required a large cast and we wanted to give as many new people as possible a good experience, " stated Mrs. Faye Kachur, English teacher and Drama sponsor. We had over 35 parts, and almost everyone who tried out got one. " The play focused on the tiny country of Grand Fenwick, its people, and the financial problems they faced. Their chief export, Pinot Grand Fenwick, was being produced in America at a cheaper price. When Grand Fenwick asked that production of the imitation wine be stopped, they got no reply. So, in order to save the Dutchy, they declared war on America. " You haven ' t experienced life until you ' ve invaded New York in panty hose, " exclaimed Jonathan Mintz, sophomore. Directed by Mr. Richard Smith, guidance counselor, and student director, senior Tom Bosch, the play brought in $1650. Even though Grand Fenwick was small, their efforts were big. Production of the imitation wine was stopped, and the country promised ... no more wars. Mouse of a country roars at America ' Merry men ' set stage as tiny war comes to life Now fully equipped for battle with a remembrance of Sovereign Gloriana, junior janice Levy, Tully Bascom, sophomore Jonathan Mintz, carefully cherishes the sovereign ' s scarf. Fall Play 19 To cure the " hungries " of the late evening, junior Diane McMorris makes her selection as senior Jeff Skorupa looks over the display to decide his choice. Even after a small spill, senior Barb Ford still manages to make her way to the dance with alumnus Paul Smith. 20 Chi Chi Kappa Chi moves dance to Wicker Park Social Center Changes for a touch of elegance Changes. Nothing is forever. This does not exclude formal dances. For the first time Chi Kappa Chi moved its annual turnabout dance to a more elegant atmosphere. On January 5, Wicker Park Social Center opened its doors to the theme " We ' ve Only Just Begun. " The most noticable change was the price. Costing $15, the ticket price doubled over the past year. Included in the price were music by Monterrey from 8 to 11 p.m., catered hors d ' oeuvres and punch, and memory booklets. Pictures were extra at a cost of $7. " The increase in price was due to the cost of the hall. We knew it would be expensive, but we wanted a good dance and felt that Wicker Park Social Center was the best place to have it, " explained Sue Acheson, Chi Vice- President. Another change, an obvious difference, would be a girl asking a guy for a date instead of the traditional vice versa. Today however, this arrangement is becoming less awkward and more and more acceptable. As 195 couples discoed to the beat of Monterrey, it became evident that change is for the best. While choosing from the wide assortment of hors d ' oeuvres, juniors Mike Godzala and Jeff Milan talk over the events of their evening. Lost in the crowd, seniors Dave Sipkowsky and Kim Knutson step in time to Monterrey ' s version of " China Grove " . With a change over from the disco atmosphere, seniors Beth Eggebrecht and Keith Hunter share a slow and romantic dance. Chi 21 (s she for real? Suicidal Anna strives to transform into Princess Anastasia To create an older looking face, senior )oe Fowler, Bounine, turns himself over to the makeup artist ' s hands. SPRING PLAY CAST. FRONT ROW: Barb Austen, Tim Finley, Steve Klawitter, Mary Grantner. BACK ROW: Marcie Sherman, Greg Benkovich, Lisa Nisevich, Pete Manous, |im Austen, Mike Smith, Maureen Bryan, Joe Fowler, Scott Merkel. In order to match the resemblance of Anastasia ' s walk, senior Tim Finley, Piotr, forces junior Lisa Nisevich, Anna, out of her chair to practice the royal stride. 22 Spring Play Is she or isn ' t she? Can poor Anna be passed off as the rich princess Anastasia, the daughter of the Russian Czar? Taking place in the 20 ' s after the Russian Revolution, the spring play " Anastasia " featured a 13 member cast. Co- sponsored by Mrs. Faye Kachur, English teacher, and Mr. Richard Smith, guidance counselor, the Drama Club transformed the auditorium into a home in Berlin, Germany on Feb. 2 and 4. Approximately eight years after the disappearance of Anastasia, the leader of a committee of concerned loyalists finds Anna about to commit suicide. The committee, anxious to collect the millions left in the Czar ' s estate, develop a scheme to train Anna into becoming the lost princess. The play came up against many problems. Beginning with only four weeks to practic e, compared to the normal minimum of six weeks, conflicts between the cast and sponsor caused the student director to quit just one week before the play. Junior Barb Austen felt, " because of the lack of practice, we just had to do the best we could. " Despite these problems, the play enticed a sparse crowd of less than 200, down from the normal fuller houses. i With a little guidance and support, junior Pete Manous, Chernov, checks over some tricky lines with sponsor Mrs. Faye Kachur, English teacher. As she glances with disgust toward Bounine, junior Barb Austen, Dowager Empress of Russia, grandmother of Anastasia, has a suspicion that Anna is a fraud. Convinced she has seen the real Anastasia, senior Mary Crantner, charwoman, must be dragged from Bounine ' s living room. Spring Play 23 Getting it off your chest A T-shirt is not just two pieces of 100% cotton sewn together. It is, no doubt, a vital part of every wardrobe and tells a story about that person. From " I ' m with stupid " to " Be nice to me, I ' ve had a hard day, " they reflect the wearers ' personality. It seems to be a way of telling who they are by illustrating their interest on their chest. Though a T-shirt may picture a favorite rock star or sex symbol, they more often boast of vacation spots and universities the wearer has visited. " Mom and Dad went to Florida and all I got was a crummy T-shirt " is also a famous complaint. Whether it ' s in bright red and white from " State Swim Champs " to the infamous " Munster " slogans, a T-shirt can also remind everyone of the " braggers " school. In case anyone forgets, his own name is sometimes inscribed in big bold letters across his back. A T-shirt is more than a yard or two of material covering one ' s back. It’s more than an article of clothing placed among other high fads and fashions. It ' s an impression. T-Shirts 25 ' Alwi Parties, parking, prom provide the entertainment ‘Always and Forever’ No, it just couldn ' t happen. Not today. As many wary prom goers rose Saturday to overcast skies, they hoped it wouldn ' t rain. And all the hoping payed off. Late afternoon turned out bright and clear as students anxiously got ready for the long awaited evening. To start the evening off, many couples posed numerous times in front of parents ' clicking cameras and soon rushed off to join friends for pre-prom parties. Upon entering prom, 193 couples exchanged their $30 ticket number for memory booklets as the theme " Always and Forever " took shape. Getting caught up in the mist, senior Ken Banas and sophomore leanine Gozdecki move to a song by " Together. " « 26 Prom ANOTHER PROM IS HE " BRINGS A J( SOME S SMILE YOU HAVE T1 R ' FOUR Y D A PATH ROM DAWN TO SBTTMft NOW THE P THGETS ' ► THE CLIMB HAS ju3 RE VERY G| MISS YOU D TO THE While entering the commons, junior Laura Labeots and senior John Sannito contemplate the coming evening ' s activities. Though jeans are shed for formals, class rings are not. Senior Roz Whitcombe adjusts her date ' s tie before taking pictures. At the beginning of the evening, senior Brad Barnes presents his ticket to freshman Scott Spongberg while onlookers wait their turn. Prom 27 In a moment by himself, senior Pat Chapin gets in the music and " rocks out. " Cravings abound as senior Jon Luksich and date chose from the wide variety of appetizers that were served at prom. In order to keep warm, junior Jim Cammarata sheds his jacket for his date. In turn he receives a thank you kiss. 28 Prom 4 Parties, parking, prom ‘Always and Forever’ Taking place in the North Commons instead of the usual cafeteria, prom kicked off with the band " To gether " and lasted from 9 p.m. to midnight. Couples were found dancing underneath the mirror ball, which was a gift from the Senior Class and will be used at all proceeding proms. Pictures were also taken by Titak Studios for the cost of $7. To carry on the second half of the evening, post prom was held at Wicker Park Social Center from 1:30 a.m. to 4 a.m., where the band " Santa Fe " provided the musical entertainment. With the buffet style dinner line extending across the room, hungry couples were forced to wait until 3:45 a.m. to eat as much dancing was missed out on. With luck still holding out, Sunday ' s weather proved to be flawless as many couples headed out to a near by beach or cottage to give the weekend a final touch. With the aid of a cane and top hat, senior Greg Chona and freshman Julie Ingram take the stage. Prom 29 Getting Cool: not as easy as it looks With a flick of their wrists. West Side hoods shaped stage into threatening hangout. In the midst of a dream, juniors Julie Tussey and John Remmers portray the lovers, Tony and Maria, Nowhere to run— nowhere to hide. Wondering what lies on the corner ' s other side. Feeling tension— wanting to scream— GET COOL! With a flick of the wrist and a snap of the fingers, " West Side Story " became a reality for the 149 cast and crew members working on the musical. Under constant direction from Mr. Richard Holmberg, music department chairman, and Mr. Gene Fort, U.S. History teacher these same people transformed an empty stage into a dirty, steamy slum on the west side of New York City. The story, taking place on two hot summer nights, revolved around five basic characters, their friends, and the perils they faced with growing up. Showing this emotion posed to be somewhat difficult. " West Side Story " is considered to be dramatically as well as musically difficult. It is serious as opposed to other ' light-hearted ' musicals, " stated Mr. Fort. Tension between the two rival gangs was relieved by dancing to numbers such as, " America, " " Cool, " nd " Gee, Officer Krupke ' which were choreographed by Mrs. Helen Engstrom, Speech teacher, and Miss Kathy Dartt, English 10 teacher. With all the scenery, costumes, royalties, and make-up needed, the musical was by no means inexpensive. The production cost over $6,700 to perform. The final profit totaled over $4,300. As they took their bows for the final show, the performers were relieved as months of hard work and effort came to an end. 30 Musical Not knowing it ' s their last night together. Riff ' s friend Tony, alumnus Mike Koufos, and Bernardo ' s sister Maria, alumnus Cathy Miller, sing of the plans for their future. As another argument erupts about returning to Puerto Rico, Bernardo, alumnus Mike Mintz, and his girl friend Anita, senior Colleen Walsh, voice their opinion of the value of ' America. ' Without realizing it would end in a tragic death, Shark leader Bernardo, alumnus Mike Mintz and )et leader Riff, alumnus Matt Pfister, attempt to defend their territory. While under the command of Jet leader Matt Pfister, alumnus, the Jets warn the Sharks of their coming fate. Musical 31 Long ago, as a naive freshman, a tour of the school was a necessary task to get you around. At the time, the massive fieldhouse seemed overpowering. On June 3, it didn ' t appear so huge. Had you grown that much? The 425 seniors " made it " to the fieldhouse one last time for Commencement exercises at 8 p.m. Approximately 140 grads also gathered in the auditorium at 2 p.m. for Baccalaureate, where Class President Paul Maginot gave the Invocation. Readings were presented by Salutatorian Maureen Bryan, Vice President Dan Cueller, and Secretary -T reasurer Wendy Richards. To close the ceremony Rev. Calvin Phillips of Southside Christian Church presented the Address and Benediction. As the day carried on, members of the Class performed one last time by throwing confetti and calling out nicknames. After the procession. Student Government President Tom Bosch gave the Invocation, while each of the Valedictorians Leann Lasky, Cindy Ferber, and Suzi Shaw gave the Opening, Commencement, and Senior Addresses. Besides the speeches, the orchestra and Senior Concert Choir performed a few selections. The long awaited time finally came as the presentation of the Class diplomas was given by principal Dr. Karl Hertz, Superintendent Dr. Underwood and School T rustees. When the last ' Z ' was called, you realized it was over and as Leann said in her opening address, you can surely say, " I did it. " Amid shouts and confetti, 425 seniors ' make it ' to the fieldhouse one last time Seniors say ‘(did it Adding his own personal touch to graduation, senior Gregg Gilboe joins the orchestra during " Russian Sailors ' Dance. " lust because it is graduation doesn ' t mean you have to dress up. Senior Ron Moskovsky finds his jeans and sandles suitable for Baccalaureate. 32 Graduation With anticipation growing, seniors Terri Caidor and Patty Gage wait for their names to be called. After receiving their diplomas. Valedictorians Cindy Ferber, Leann Lasky, Suzi Shaw, and Salutatorian Maureen Bryan rise to lead their Class out of the fieldhouse for the last time. Graduation 33 From Bicentennial rockets to punk rock safety pins, the decade ends in a flurry 70 s 34 Closing of the 70 ' s When we think of government, Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter pop into our minds not to mention corruption and Watergate. The nation was on an upswing in the early 70 ' s and ecology and recycling became major issues. And in order to up new oil reserves, the Alaskan pipeline was constructed. Also on the national level was the Bicentennial which caused us all to witness a once in a lifetime event. As Americans looked for something different, they stumbled upon health foods and strange concoctions that were supposed to be edible. And as inflation hit us all, many noticed the increase in price of candy bars and postage stamps. But looking on the lighter side of things, quite a number of fads such as pet rocks, disco, mood rings and punk rock won our hearts. And what will the coming 80 ' s bring us? Who can tell, but after 89 inches of snow this past winter, no doubt it will be something different and unexpected. Closing of the 70 ' s 35 36 Closing of the 70 ' s It seemed to go by so fast. Could the 70 ' s possible be over? Wasn ' t it just the other day that we were writing ' 1970 ' on class papers, or is it that we are quickly growing older and the old cliche still holds true, " time flies when you ' re having fun? " We all look at this past decade in a ditterent light, but many of us associate the 70 ' s with a few memorable things. As we grew up we became more fashion conscious and some of us recall wearing toe socks, earth shoes, and the shorter of us stepping up into platform shoes. Also playing a big part in our lives were movies and television and some of the favorites were The Godfather, The Sting, Jaws, Helter-Skelter, Star Wars and Mork and Mindy. Along with television came well known celebrities that we all grew to like or hate, whichever the case may have been. Though the death of Elvis sorrowed us, Steve Martin made us laugh, and Anita Bryant angered many as Farrah-Fawcett-Majors showed us the bare essentials. Closing of the 70 ' s 37 purse Direction: olleqe Prep Students choose college prep program as their high school course of direction Springtime brings about the graduation of the seniors, but in another respect it is also the time for eighth graders to choose a course of direction in which they will pursue in high school. In early spring, high school counselors traveled to Wilbur Wright Middle School and St. Thomas More to discuss the high school curriculum. After the counselor ' s discussion, the students pondered the question of their future in high school and most important the decision of, " will I go to college or will I pursue a career aft er graduation? " But if a student plans on entering college, he or she must first meet all the requirements of a college prep program. The curriculum puts the most emphasis on the English Department. A student is required to take eight semesters of English, seven of which was required and one semester that was an elective. Advanced English classes in grades nine and ten were developed for the above average student who moved along at a quicker pace. Students were placed in these advanced classes through high test scores and teacher recommendations. The required English classes were English 9, 10, 11, and Composition I, II, or III.

With Geometry notes and books before him, sophomore Dan Knight concentrates on his homework assignment. 40 College Prep During the senior year, students took Composition I, II, or III depending upon their skills and capabilities in writing. Senior students were placed by their eleventh grade English teachers into the different composition levels. " Our writing program is well prepared for a college prep program. We ' ve had good feedbacks from Indiana University and Ball State University on the program, " stated Mr. Jack Yerkes, English teacher. The next step to a college prep program is in the Social Science Department. Students were required to take four semesters of social science which consisted of U.S. History, Government, and either Economics of Sociology, depending on one ' s interest. U.S. History, which is taken in the junior year, helps a student acquire a background of the United States. Students were required to present oral reports on current events. To better understand the way our government is set up and run, students took United States Government in their senior year. During one of the six weeks, students participated in Hopcal, a government simulation on what takes place in Congress. Students also had a choice of Sociology or Economics. Economics concentrated on the study of business and Sociology focused on society and social relations. Math is also a mandatory requirement for college prep students. The basic In order to complete his English assignment, sophomore Bruce Corbin reviews a short story during study hall. College Prep 41 requirements for college bound students was two years of math, which usually is Algebra I and Geometry. But most students who saw college in their future took advanced math courses like Algebra II, Trigonometry, College Algebra or Calculus. One other direction towards college is in the Science Department. Students were required to take two semesters of Biology to graduate. But for a college prep program, students are urged to take an extra year of science and Chemistry was usually taken to fill the needed requirement. “Most students at Munster take one or two semesters of advanced science, but there is also a high percentage of students who took science all four years, " commented Mr. John Edington, Biology teacher. The last requirement for college is foreign language. A student does not need foreign language for graduation, but most colleges require two years of language of either French, German, or Spanish. “Foreign language prepares a student for college in that it gives the student a better understanding of the English grammar and an awareness of other cultures, " stated Mrs. Helga Meyer, Foreign Language teacher. As September came and a new semester began, freshmen entered into a new world and many hoped the course of direction they chose would take them to college. While explaining the homework assignment, Mrs. Linda Ellman points at the worksheet as sophomore Jack Krawczyk looks on.

Why would anyone want to give up a nice warm bed to freeze in a lumpy sleeping bag? Well, that ' s just what the 21 members of the Outdoors Club found themselves doing. According to sophomore Renee Montes, secretary " we like to camp out in the great outdoors it gives us a definite sense of freedom. " Under the leadership of senior Kathy Stavros, % president; senior Mary Kay Wilkinson, vice president; sophomore, Renee Montes, secretary; junior Nancy Keil, treasurer and sponsor Mr. Art Haverstock, biology teacher, the Outdoors Club made several excursions into the wilds of nature. " We were far more active this year than in past years " explained Kathy. That seemed to be exemplified by the club ' s many activities, such as a hayride in October, horseback riding in November, a trip to Devil ' s lake in Wisconsin during December, tobogganing and an additional camp out in the spring, and not to mention, the traditional freeze out over Christmas vacation. During warmer seasons, the 15 Scuba Club members found it an opportune time to practice their diving and swimming techniques in France park, joliet Beach Club, No-Name Quarry, Pearl Lake and Door County. The members also had the chance to take advantage of meeting other divers and participating in other dives. There were no fund raising events and much of the money for diving equipment, sometimes totalling up to $800, usually came out of the group ' s own pockets. There were all the additional costs for instructions which in the end made every member a certified diver. Through Outdoors Club and Scuba Club, students experienced nature, however harsh it might have been.

" This might be a typical morning for someone in Project Biology. Getting up for zero hour class, which began at 7 a.m., was part of the daily routine for every Project Biology student. " I really didn ' t mind getting up early to go to class, " exclaimed senior Kathy Stavros. " The class was very worthwhile because you learn more about the area you live in by actually experiencing it through feeling, touching, and seeing it. " " All of the students in Project Biology want to learn. They all work hard and have a strong desire to experiment, " stated Mr. Haverstock, Project Biology teacher. This desire has spread over to instructors Mr. Brian Young and Mr. John Edington, as well as Mr. Haverstock, as they have applied for a federal grant from the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) to improve and expand the class. There was no set price tag on the grant because some things were still being negotiated, but the grant will give Munster a chance to develop a stronger course. " After the grant is passed, we ' ll have better hand-outs, audio-visual equipment, and more camping equipment, " explained Mr. Edington. The grant includes 13 qualifications to be met by the class in order to receive it. Contained within these qualifications are that the course must include at least two or three related activities involving swimming, snorkeling, sociology, ecology, and geology. All these areas are taught in relation to the environment. Also, the course must train people to develop courses similar to Project Biology, and cover land uses and pollution. Besides applying for the grant, the 24 members of Project Biology traveled to the Indiana Dunes during early fall and spent a week at the Florida Keys during spring break. " We travel to both areas because they are seashores. By studying the Dunes, the area we live in, we can compare it to the Florida Keys, " commented Mr. Haverstock. The keys are one of the best collecting areas around because there is no heavy surf. " When the class returned home from each trip, they were required to write a term paper on what they had learned. Project Biology is said to be a " different " type of class because it is an elective course and people have a choice to sign up for it or not. " You learn more by experiencing than merely reading a text, " explained senior Michelle Montes. " I signed up for the class because I like science and I like finding out about ecology. Getting up early to be at school by 7 a.m. was only a minor problem, " concluded senior Bill Rhind.

Checking the contents of the coffee pot, senior Diane Langeford, helps along at the French Club party. I ' d like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony. Harmony proved to be the word encompassing and reaching all ears of the members of the American Field Service (AFS), Spanish Club, and French Club. At the start of the year, those students interested in learning about France, joined the French Club, sponsored by Miss Alyce Mart, along with sophomore Jonathon Mintz, president. They helped the club in planning such fundraisers by french bake sales, filling Christmas stockings with candy, and selling flowers for the celebration of the French Mayday. The money raised from these fundraisers covered the cost of the fieldtrips to the Museum of Science and Industry, and the Art Institute, several French restaurants, and the annual French cheese parties. 48 AFS French Club If a student ' s preference was learning about Spain, then he or she could have probably been found at a Spanish Club meeting under the direction of junior Susan Goldenberg, president. With the aid of Mrs. Linda Ellman, Spanish teacher, stationary and bakesales were run in order to pay for the costs of yearly events. These events included displays set up in the Resource Center of Spanish objects from around the world, and a trip to the Mexican Folklore Ballet. For others, living in a foreign country for a year didn ' t have to be an ever- lasting dream. With the help of AFS sponsor Mrs. Jayne Gillsinger, French teacher, and the rest of the chapter, money was raised by selling candy. The proceeds of this also went towards the cost for the Dec. 7 " International Night, " a three day weekend set aside for all AFS students. By attending this, one was able to see " Christmas around the world " and, at the same time, observe and listen to Foreign exchange students speak about their countries. Folksinging and foreign dances were also featured, along with a smorgasboard of international delicacies. During the annual AFS weekend, foreign exchange students from all over the state participated with a non- stop schedule. Going to the beach, taking trips to Chicago and having parties, were just a few of the highlights of the weekend, which helped to conclude the year. So, as a result of the AFS program, all students were given the chance to go off in their desired field of language and " teach the world to sing, " but, at the same time, join together as a whole and " sing in harmony.

As the end of the semester creeps up, tension builds as your mind goes blank, how are you supposed to remember what happened on day one? Pressures brought on by finals are felt just before leaving the house in the morning. Even after a night filled with studying, stu- dents are still unsure when morning arrives. Eating breakfast provided them with yet another opportu- nity to take a glance at their notes and refresh their memories. Instead of trying to decide which comes first, Cheerios or Bi- ology, freshman Caroline Paulson compromises by doing both of them at the same time. Early studying is usually peaceful. With a week left before finals, there is very little pressure. While study- ing her Algebra, soph- omore Kathy Woodward listens to some music to relax away study blahs. It ' s the night before your final and time is running out. You find a comfortable spot in front of the T.V. with plenty of food in reach for quick energy. Junior Rose Santare finds this her best way to study her history as her final draws nearer. Maybe you like potato chips better than wheat thins and late night movies better than cartoons, but whichever way you choose as finals become close, T.V. and " mun- chies " seem to be a big asset. I UIEU THUR5 FRI SAT Final pressures still haven ' t arrived. Junior Sue Hriso finds it relaxing to study her math outside of a doorway. After studying so long it ' s nice to have people break the monotony. Party! With his final only a day away, senior Charles Ma- censki untilizes every sec- ond he can. As the pres- sures grow he takes advantage of the cubby hole outside of his classroom. On the morning of a fi- nal, pressures are becom- ing more substantial. Junior Dave Szakacs takes advan- tage of every minute by studying his history while he dries his hair. The pressure be- comes the most appar- ent just before you ' re about to take a final. Surrounded by a table full of friends seldom disturbs a student in- tensely studying for fi- nals. While his class- mates eat, sophomore Bob Daily studies for his General Math II final during the closing minutes of lunch. Be- cause of not studying fully the night before, students are seen cram- ruing for finals as their friends eat lunch. As you walk into class and sit down at your desk you ' re mind becomes a blank. But, just think back to the night before or ear- lier that day and try to re- member which position you found yourself in while studying. N othing always follows tradition. Sometimes certain changes should be made. To the Student Government members this meant the revision of the Constitution. Through the development of new constitutional chan ges. Student Government enthusiasm was raised with a second semester election.

Replacing first semester Student Body President, senior Tom Bosch, junior Debbie Markovich served as president for the remainder of her junior year and the first semester of the 79- ' 80 school year. To become a Student Body President, the constitution changed the qualifications to read: " candidates must have Student Government experience without violating any of the attendance requirements. " Being able to run for an office without experience in Student Government or without a reasonable attendance record was an issue of conflict within the student government and body. Because of this, the officers ' main priority was keeping a stricter record of attendance at the meetings. Another change involved the responsibilities of Homecoming. The Vice President, senior Linda Luberda took charge of the activities, rather than the usual presidential supervision With the help of secretary- Student Senate 53 treasurer, senior Diane Miskus and the other 30 members of the Government, Homecoming festivities ran smoothly. After the burst of Homecoming, the atmosphere slowed to a steady pace. The Government accomplished first semester objectives.

As he paints the final touches on his masterpiece, his mind wanders to how maybe som eday his work will be admired in museums along with Rembrandt ' s and Monet ' s. These two daydreamers were taking a different academic course of direction. They were taking the elective route to supplement their class loads. Electives were classes that were not required, but students took them because they were interested in what the classes had to offer. Electives include such classes as art, drama, speech, journalism, developmental reading, psychology, and music. Aspiring Rembrants and Monets chose electives from Basic Art, Drawing and Painting, Dimensional Design, Visual and Applied Design to Printmaking. Students in individual classes worked on different projects from plaster hands in Basic Art, distorted portraits in Drawing and Painting, ceramic mosaics in Dimensional Design, and the cover for Pegasus, the school ' s literary magazine, in Visual and Applied Design. All art classes stressed self-discipline, thought, and creativity. However, many of the principles taught on individual projects could be applied outside of class. " Art classes foster awareness of one ' s environment; and information can be related to everyday decisions, such as color schemes and wall arrangements, " explained Mrs. Dee Hawkins, art teacher. " Study in art also fosters self discipline, good craftmanship and appreciation, " she continued.

In hopes of expanding her reading skills, junior Judy Brauer concentrates on her independent readings during Developmental Reading class. 56 Electives stage, drama class gave students a chance to work on projecting their voices, designing costumes and scenery, and acting out various situations. The final goal of the course was to produce a complete one act play. Students were then graded on the overall effectiveness of the play that they produced. Through drama class, students got an overall look at the work that goes into a theatrical production. " I hope that they got an appreciation for the theater and appreciate the amount of work that goes into it, " said Mrs. Faye Kachur, drama and English teacher. Speech and Debate classes were open to those students who wanted to develop self confidence and to relate to other people better. Some of the activities involved in class were the Student Congress, where students presented and debated bills, and various other types of speeches. " Students were graded on progress because it (speech) is a skill course. They are also graded on how much they improved and how much a student proved to have the ability to communicate effectively, " explained Mrs. Helen Engstrom, speech teacher. For students wishing to expand their reading skills. Developmental Reading classes were offered. Critical reading, listening comprehension, oral reading, memory for study skills and independent readings formed the basic units of the course. Individual progress and performance in each unit determined the student ' s grades. " It adds confidence in speaking and listening (communication) as well as reading ability, " explained Miss Jody Lubliner, Developmental Reading teacher. " Also, students realize that reading can be enjoyable. " Journalism classes were offered to students curious about the mass media, such as magazines, newspapers, and T.V. During the first semester, they explored such units as advertising, After learning the different aspects of acting, junior Peter Manous and senior Terri Mahala prepare a skit in drama class while senior Joyce Verboom waits for her cue.

Caught up in the midst of Developmental Reading class, senior Ann Zondor concentrates on completing some of her study skills. 58 Electives history of the media, rights and responsibilities of each medium, and current trends in radio, T.V., film, and newspapers. The second semester students concentrated on broadening their writing skills, practicing news and feature stories, and reporting for the Crier. For students interested in continuing journalism as a member of the newspaper or yearbook staffs, a field trip to Purdue Calumet for the Northern Indiana Journalism Seminar (NI)S) was planned. During the field trip, students attended various sessions given by journalism experts from all over the United States. For students who wished to go beyond communication type skill courses, Psychology gave students a chance to explore the mysteries of the human mind. The class was designed to promote knowledge and understanding of human behavior. " It (psychology) benefits students in any respect of life, not only in college but anywhere, " explained Mrs. Cerda McCloskey, psychology teacher. Students who wanted to delve deeper into this field took Advanced Psychology. In this course, students studied child, adolescent, abnormal, and social psychology. To better understand the realities of abnormal psychology, students took a field trip to Logansport Mental Institution. If human nature and psychology did not meet their interests, classical notes of Strauss and Beethoven echoed down the hall as music students tried to discover the value of classical music. " Music listening is important since most people are listeners instead of producers of music, " commented Mr. Richard Holmberg, Music Department Head. Music Appreciation let students not only listen for musical forms, but they also studied different units such as comparison of the arts, and an overall view of all the arts. Students discovered and learned to appreciate the arts more through field trips to the Lyric Opera in Chicago and the Chicago Symphony. Music Theory was offered to students who wanted to learn the fundamentals of music such as basic notation and rhythm, traditional harmony and chords, ear training, and sign singing. But students did not only listen to music and study the fundamentals, but they also created their own music by singing during such courses as Glee Club for freshmen girls and boys, Glee Club for sophomore girls. Tenth and Eleventh Grade Choir for sophomore and junior boys and junior girls, and Concert Choir for both senior girls and boys. As students pursue their particular interests through elective courses, many daydreamers hope that their dreams will come true.

The proceeds funded a Peace Corp project in an underdeveloped country. For some amusement, they attended the Great America Theme Park in summer and the musical, " The King and I. " They concluded the year by shaking their gold tassels (which identified them as being in NHS) at each other gleefully at graduation ceremonies. Unlike NHS, PTSA was open to any student who wanted to get involved with school happenings. To boost their treasury, PTSA had a bake sale during Open House and a rummage sale in October which made $600. They also sponsored Careers Night on March 13, in which many jobs were explained to students and the rap sessions with Dr. Karl Hertz, principal. Although there were usually only about 20 people in attendance at the rap sessions they were generally considered worthwhile for the people that went. They also sent out a bi- monthly newsletter telling parents what the school was doing. Although only seven students were in PTSA, Mrs. Char Mott thought they were particularly helpful with publicity.

Exhausted after spending hours writing captions and copy, a staffer tries to catch a few winks at a workshop deadline. Y " ou want it when? " That just might be the best way to describe the Paragon Staff which included 25 staffers and 6 photographers. Not only did they work on deadlines for the yearbook with the theme, " Pride says it all " , but they also laughed at the " You want it when? " sign posted on the bulletin board. This had a kind of special meaning for the yearbook staff, because deadlines had a way of sneaking up and the " You want it when? " sign characterized the hysteria which invaded this cramped, carpeted room. Staffers worked in a rather informal atmosphere. It was informal because it was up to you to get your work in. Also, people would be writing and looking for pictures frantically one day and the next day staffers would be devouring cupcakes and candy. Adviser Mrs. Nancy Hastings, 66 Paragon journalism teacher, explained, " It ' s not like the structured class. You get to know people. " Since you got to meet and know more people, senior editor-in-chief Leann Lasky thought that the class was more like a family than a class. The old saying, " The family that prays together, stays together, " seems to apply, because staffers often looked up for divine help during the process of deadlines. Yearbook planning started in August when eight staffers and four photographers went to Ball State University to learn new techniques at the summer workshops. Amidst all the hectic work, they still had time for joint Halloween and Christmas parties with the Crier Staff, birthday parties and Kris Kringles.

Each member drew someone ' s name and each day they were surprised with a small gift of candy or a toy. At the end of the year a banquet was held and new positions were announced. So amazingly enough the deadlines were met and the " You want it when? " sign was taken down and saved for ' You WANT IT wlfEN? ' next year ' s staff. Quickly typing up a few captions, senior fill Pasko hurries to get it done before the spread is due. IfEAdliNES... hEAdliNES... HELP! A nyone passing the Pub second hour on a school day could hear choruses of laughter and song erupt from out of the carpeted room. However, contrary to popular belief. Crier was not just all parties and fun, as producing 18 issues of a newspaper proved to be a lot of work. " Crier isn ' t just centered around academics like most other classes, " explained senior Jim Szczepaniak, Editor-in-Chief. Twenty-six staffers gave countless hours and effort to meet Crier ' s seemingly never- ending deadlines. " A lot of people think we just have a good time, " stated senior Michele Kurteff, Opinion editor, " but a lot of planning goes into putting out an eight-page paper. " The entire process began At the first annual Crier-Paragon Halloween party, senior Creg Hartoonian smiles as his fellow staffers demonstrate the bunny-hop. Time is running out, as senior Tim Finley, advertising manager positions his last advertisement before the 5 p.m. deadline. 68 Crier with a weekly editorial board meeting on Wednesday. There, the nine editors discussed and planned the next issue of Crier. Nine days later, Crier was for the most part written, and pictures were taken. All that remained was for the editors to make final changes and corrections and have all copy ready for the printer by the next Tuesday. Responsible for what always looked like mass hysteria, Mrs. Nancy Hastings, journalism teacher and adviser, remarked, " the average person walking by the Pub could not understand what was going on in here. It always looked like we weren ' t doing anything at all. All they had to do was to come by the Pub on a Tuesday or a Thursday to find out what it ' s really all about. " In order to finance the paper, local businesses placed ads in Crier and Thanksgiving thankfuls and Christmas wishes were sold along with Valentines ' Day carnations. As May 25 rolled around and the last issue of Volume 13 came off the press, the bizarre atmosphere of second hour Crier was put to rest.

Finally, all the hours spent taking pictures and writing Crier and News Bureau stories and Paragon captions paid off, as the 13 new Quill and Scroll members received their golden scroll pin. Membership in the society was limited to a few. Besides being of junior or senior status and having at least a 2.8 accumulative, potential members had to have made a significant contribution to the Publications Department by working on one of the journalism staffs. " We ' re different from many schools, " explained Mrs. Nancy Hastings journalism adviser, " since we limit membership to the best journalists. Many schools let almost anyone earn membership in the society.

Through the contributions of President, Cari Manley; Vice President, Michelle Montes; Treasurer, Kerri Dunn and Membership Chairman, Diane Thomas, Quill and Scroll strove to become more active by sponsoring a car wash and bake sale during the spring. " With the money we have raised we hope to help sponsor a summer journalism workshop scholarship, " explained Kerri. Their most important event of the year was sponsoring the traditional Journalism Banquet. Here new members were initiated as well as new staff members being announced. One of the new staffs announced at the banquet were the News Bureau members. Under the supervision of senior Brizieda Cardenas, Editor-in-Chief, staff writers researched to keep the community informed about school happenings. Besides writing the Times Youth column, they also provided stories for the Calumet Press, Sun Journal and Post Tribune.

They then continued on to State where senior Sue Dalkamp completed her term as District Vice-President, and junior Jackie Orlandi took over. Under the direction of president Sue Dalkamp, they sponsored three fundraisers. These included bakesales, a Valentine flower and sucker sale, and the selling of stuffed animals. The money raised provided for an Employer Coffee Break at Christmas, district dues, and their Annual Employer-Employee Banquet in May. Tedious drills in typing, selling, and marketing, proved to be worthwhile to those students involved in the working community.

OEA DE 89 It began as a flurry . . . Despite the cold weather and snow covered streets, sophomore Marvin Hecht finds time to prepare for the upcoming track season. Taking advantage of the two snowdays, freshmen Kim Sterling, Mike Bukowski, Michelle Kelchak, and |ohn Serletic enjoy tobogganing down the “Highland Hill. " • r . Trapped in after the blizzard, senior Creg Chona attempts to clear a path from his house to his driveway. Up to their knees in snow, seniors jeff Olan and Brad Barnes dig through the drifts trying to uncover their car. As part of his job as head janitor, Mr. Pete Cyganowicz clears away snow from the north parking lot so that students can use the available parking spaces. 90 Blizzard of 79 There were some students who attempted to beat the boredom by sledding, ice skating, and skiing. “I stayed in the whole weekend and I just had to get out, so I enjoyed the snow and went ice skating and sledding, " commented senior Ann Zondor. Other students, however, did not find the blizzard to be just as enjoyable. Many times they were seen shovelling outside for hours in order to get out of their house. Additional time was added to the frustration if they had to dig their car out of a snow drift. For most, the short vacation ended all too fast, as school resumed Wednesday and just as things were getting back to normal, many problems began. With the fear of roofs collapsing, many homeowners could be found on the tops of roofs shovelling the snow. For several weeks the frustration lagged on and not even a bit of green grass or cleared road were visible. After the initial effect of the blizzard, WLS radio sponsored a " I survived the Blizzard of 79 " T-shirt contest for the lucky winner. Even some local businesses caught on and used this slogan in many of their ads. Although the Blizzard of 79 with 20.3 inches of snow did not measure up to the town ' s 23 inch record set in ' 67, the blizzard exceeded the total amount of snowfall recorded in a year and had many long lasting effects! See you when it thaws! Kathy Dear Mike, And now for the Jan. 12 forecast: partly cloudy with two to four inches of snow possible ending early Saturday morning, making travel hazardous. By early Saturday morning 6.8 inches had fallen with 14 to 15 more inches of new snow expected to blanket the area. During midafternoon, the Munster vs. Hammond Clark basketball game was postponed along with every other weekend plan. With another snowfall Sunday afternoon and temperatures dropping to a record of 19 degrees below zero, students tuned their radios to WJOB 12:30, anxiously awaiting the announcement of the school ' s first " snow day. " Classes were indeed cancelled Monday because, according to Superintendent Dr. Wallace Underwood, " the contractor men started plowing the lots Sunday night and it was just too much. The low temperatures that were expected on Monday were also in consideration for the school closings. " As four more inches covered the ground Monday night, school was again cancelled for Tuesday. Dr. Underwood explained, " the contractors just had not done the job and the parking lots had not been cleared. " Despite the closing of schools, most stores remained open, but business was slow. As one area businessman stated, " our employees were able to make it in so we opened, but business was virtually at a standstill for a few days. " Blizzard of 79 91 Course Direction: Physical Education With a flick of the wrist, sophomore Jim Such lobs the ball over the net changing the pace of the game and gaining a point for his team. Prior to performing her routine on the uneven bars during the gymnastics ' unit in physical education, freshman Karen Waxman stretches to loosen her muscles. 92 Physical Education Co-educational classes provide various elective fields in which to choose from . . . Lockers slamming, voices rising, and muscles aching, the tired athletes crowd the locker room. The heat of the competition is over. Could this be the locker room of the Chicago Bulls? White Sox? Or Mustangs? No, it is the locker room after a tiring session of physical education. The competition could have been anything from flag football to bowling. Students in periods one, two, and three could choose four activities per six weeks. Some of the choices included various water sports, volleyball, weight training, tennis, basketball, gymnastics, and wrestling. This elective program expanded in its second year of existence. Most students like the new program. " If you have a special interest, you could develop your skills in that area, " commented Mike Castellaneta, sophomore. Students did not always get into the activities they chose because of the limited number of boys and girls who could participate in the activity. " It (the elective program) has a lot more to offer. It is a better tailored system to meet the needs and interests of the students. Also, it gives us a chance to use all of our facilities, " explained Miss Brenda Coffield, girls Physical Education teacher. Phys. ed. classes took on a new look. Instead of the traditional one piece gym suits the new look consisted of red boxer shorts and tee-shirts for both boys and girls. " I think they are a lot nicer for three reasons: they are easier to move in, they do not shrink as much, and you can wear them to other places and not be embarrassed, " added Anna Almase, junior. The plop-plop of the dripping faucet is the only sound echoing in the once crowded locker room. Unlike the Chicago Bulls or Sox, these players are off to their next class. I Halfway across the ladder and straining to reach the end, freshman Kelly Svenningsen scales the ladder by quickly moving from rung to rung. As the ball descends, freshman Becky Georgas judges the speed and prepares for a practice volley to a teammate. Physical Education 93 SpARE ME A chEcliMATE!

Anyone interested in bowling could join the Bowling Club, but they were expected to pay a weekly fee of $2.20 for lanes and 25 cents for club trophies and the annual awards banquet held in May. At the banquet, trophies for individuals, teams and improvement were handed out. Vet, bowling wasn ' t the only thing students could do with their spare time. Under the leadership of Mr. Bryan Young, biology teacher, and junior Stan Zygmunt, president, the 10 Chess Club members met every Thursday for their weekly meeting. If a meet was to be held on a particular weekend, the members would meet earlier in the week to “warm-up " for the occasion. Members were also required to provide their own registration fees. The money that went towards transportation to invitational meets, however, came from the annual pen sale held during the year. Most members were rated with the American Chess Federation, but as Mr. Young stated, " a love for the game and a desire to improve one ' s game, are the only prerequisites for membership.

With the help of Pep Club, school spirit was kept high. In addition, the varsity cheerleaders consisting of seniors Melissa Murin, Sharon Mazanek, and Suzy Shaw, and juniors Cathy Reppa, Laura Murin, and Jean Cerajewski wrote secret admirerer letters, made baked goods for the players, and painted signs to help advertise the games. The four freshman % Cheerleaders— Pep Club cheerleaders, namely Jayne Rovai, Tammi Thornton, Caroline Paulson, and Doreen Render, spent most of their time raising the spirit of the Freshman Class along with cheering the ninth grade teams on to hopeful victories. " Besides cheering, we worked with the junior varsity squad, in various fundraisers such as bake sales, a car wash, and a pennant sale at several of the games, " stated Caroline Paulson. " The summer months were put to use as the six varsity cheerleaders, and junior varsity cheerleaders sophomores Sharon Vierk, Kim Kelchak, Cheryl Morgan, and jeannine Gozdecki, went to the National Cheerleaders Camp at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. The team received awards for various activities, such as jumps, conclusions, and the " best exits, " stated senior Suzy Shaw, captain of the varsity cheerleaders. For the third year in a row, the varsity squad spent much time leading one-week cheerleading clinics for girls in grades 4-8. All three squads taught cheerleading skills to girls planning to try out, regularly every day after school. When tryouts arrived, the girls were chosen by performing acrobats, jumps, and individual cheers. Upon election of the new cheerleaders, the responsibility of raising spirit at the games was shared with the 41 members of the Pep Club. " The main objective of the Pep Club was to raise enough money to hire buses for transportation to all of the away games. They accomplished this through several bakesales which were held throughout the year.

The letter " M " was prevalent to athletes striving to obtain the title Lettermen and Letterwomen by participating in a various amount of Varsity sports. " Gaining that single ' M ' was a difficult task not to mention a honorable one. commented sophomore, Dave Potkul " Munster is very well known for its sports and receiving a letter in tennis made me feel like I contributed something. " Under the leadership of health and safety teacher, Mr. Jack King and Physical Education Director, Miss Brenda Caufield, the members of Lettermen and Letterwomen worked hard to gather up their 50 points by sweeping floors, selling programs, and keeping statistics at basketball and football games. Senior Pam Seefurth explained, " Letterwomen became eligible last year to receive letter jackets, which gave many girls the incentive to earn their letters.

Letterpeople 99 They carefully stole their way down the dim hallway and approached the metal box. The lock was quickly picked open and the strategic work began. Fifteen minutes later she entered the building. It was just another day. She opened her locker to get her books, and ... SURPRISE! Dozens of balloons, crepe paper streamers, and brightly colored signs leaped out to greet her. She shook her head in a daze and then realized it was her birthday. Birthday wishes rang through the air and jokes o f being another year older seemed never ending. But of course, being a birthday person didn ' t exclude her from going to class, so she stuffed all the balloons and decorations in and forced the locker closed ... on to the daily grind. Just when the excitement seemed to have died down and she snuck into class, a lively teacher took over. “It was really embarrassing, " commented junior Lisa Lopiccolo, " When my teachers kept singing ' Happy Birthday ' to me. " Producing a cake, gifts, and cards, faithful friends took over the celebration during lunch. With a full chorus of ' Happy Birthday to you, you belong in a zoo ' and the lighting of candles, she smiled sweetly and gulped down the banana cake which she really could not stand, but it ' s the thought that counts. Through all the excitement, the school day seemed to fly by. As she approached her home she noticed something peculiar. The front yard was blanketed in white, but no, it wasn ' t snow. " Friends of mine used 41 rolls of toilet paper to T-P my house, " bragged senior Liz Ramirez. “Every tree and bush was done. They even wrote ' Happy Birthday ' with toilet paper on my back lawn. " Curling up into bed that night, she thought of how nice it was to have good friends who put in so much time preparing for this day. Too bad birthdays only happened once a year. Caught up in the excitement of her 17th birthday, junior Janet Nottoli opens her gift to find a glimmering bronze bar pin. To decorate a locker may not seem to take time and skill, but seniors Barb Pontius and Ann Luerssen carefully place each paper streamer in its proper place. m 100 Birthdays Much to her surprise, senior Sharon Kolodziej was presented a cake by her friends to help celebrate her 18th birthday. In anticipation to discover her surprise, senior Karen Zygmunt rips open her package, while her friends anxiously gather around her.

Pride ... to 1700 students that unexplainable feeling is explainable in 1700 different ways. To one, pride may be satisfaction in a piece of artwork, to another, a winning fieldgoal. But each person has found an individual way to express this feeling. The poor, lost, little freshman is first captivated by this feeling as soon as he enters high school. Wandering through the big halls of a new building, he is constantly looking for his own little niche to fit in. Somewhere, there is a place for him ... a place where he, as well as everybody else, can fit in. From then on, he has the freedom to make his own decisions and choose what he wants to do, not what somebody else tells him to do. Even though he and others may be part of a group, each appreciates just being an individual. Each has determination and intends to succeed. Each has set his goals, but if he or she fails, they are willing to pick themselves up and keep going. They have that sense of self pride that makes them look back and say, " I did it! " With intentions of helping her student develop her math skills, senior Karen Zygmunt, cadet teacher, explains the multiplication tables. Pushing class officer jack Krawczyk, Mr. George Pollingue, sophomore class sponsor, participates during the trike race. Carefully eyeing as judges critique the class floats, freshman Jayne Rovai anticipates the start of the Homecoming parade.

Inflation goes up, styles are dupli- cated, and people maintain the status quo. But, this would be a fantasy world, because this is not reality. Society does change and the administrators continue to change to meet the needs of the present time. The most noticeable change was the appearance of a new assistant principal, Mr. Gerald Walter. Mr. Walter served as the assistant principal at Merrillville High School for the past two years, and was a U.S. History and government teacher, as well as a counselor before coming here. One of the strong points at Munster High is the curriculum. Mr. Walter feels, " the curriculum at Munster is fine and wide ranging. It contains good solid col- lege prep. " Another change facing the Adminis- tration was revising course offerings. New courses such as Advanced English 9 and 10, Remedial Government and De- velopmental Reading, and Child Devel- opment were added. Dr. Karl Hertz, principal, explained that these changes were made " to broaden the curriculum, and for us to see if these go off success- fully. We are looking at other courses for future years, especially in the Social Studies Department. Besides new faces and curriculum im- ADMINISTRATORS: Mr. Leonard Tavern, assistant superintendent for business; Mrs. Ilene Sounders, elementary coordinator.

The multi-phased building plan, esti- mated to cost eight million dollars, in- cluded refurbishing Elliot and Eads Ele- mentary schools, due to the closing of Lanier; updating Middle School facilities; building a new central administration of- fice and bus maintainance building; and expanding and improving the high school. Dr. Hertz explained, " plans for the building remodeling included ex- tended athletic facilities, a new science lab, and new administration offices. Dr. Wallace Underwood, superintendent, went on to explain, " the purpose of the building project is to correct deficiencies in the existing facilities as well as to re- furbish the building. Since the old junior high complex was built in 1958, facilities will be updated to accomodate the needs and standards of today ' s educa- tional structure. " Within these changes, a new face, a variety of courses, and a revision in school town facilities, the administration have kept up with the times. 106 Administration Expressing a sigh of relief, Dr. Wallace Underwood leaves his many duties in his office for tomorrow and goes home.

That is not necessarily true. Teachers of- ten lea rn about human nature and keep in touch with the younger generation through coaching and sponsoring organizations. Mrs. Nancy Hastings, PARAGON, PE- GASUS, and CRIER sponsor thinks spon- soring makes school exciting. " It would be so boring just lecturing all the time, " Mrs. Hastings remarked. " You get to know people better this way. " Mrs. Hastings has learned a lot of things from her staffers, including how to disco dance at a yearbook deadline. Coaching is another way for teachers to learn from students. Mr. Robert Mai- cher finds coaching girls ' athletics more enjoyable than boys. " I had a short con- tact with boys ' athletics, " Coach Mai- cher explained. " Girls are more respon- sive to my coaching. They really want to learn. " Coach Maicher also feels that his young age helps him relate to the moral values of teenagers today. " When I was in high school I was going through the time period with court decisions with jeans and long hair. I ' m only 26, so I can accept these things more than some of the older teachers. " Mr. Steve Tomasula sponsors the se- nior class because " being a student sponsor helps you get to know the stu- dents better and understand them. " Mr. Tomasula also helped coach the Senior Powder Puff team. He felt that Powder Puff was fun " because you ' re with the students without having to worry about school. " Whether bunny-hopping at a year- book deadline, or coaching from the sidelines, teachers discovered more about the younger generation than they could ever learn in the classroom. As they discuss strategy along the sidelines, Mr. Steve Tomasula and Mr. John McDonald give se- nior Liz Ramirez some tips on winning Powder Puff football game. Faculty Horlick-King Burkhardr resigns after 19 years " It takes patience to work with people and to bring out the best in them, " stated Mr. Ed Burkhardt, former Sociol- ogy teacher. After teaching for 19 years, 13 of which were spent at Munster as so- cial studies instructor, Mr. Burkhardt has concluded that the best way to relate to students is " to be honest with them. " As a teacher, Mr. Burkhardt feels his most rewarding experience has been " getting people to think. " He accom- plished this through his teachings, espe- cially Sociology. " Sociology helps a per- son understand their behavior in a group context, " Mr. Burkhardt remarked. Mr. Burkhardt ' s participation in the school stretched further than just his classroom role. Dr. Karl Hertz, principal, commented, " He will certainly be missed. His service to the school has been more than a schoolmaster; he was a sponsor, participant and motivating force in extra-curricular activities. " Involvement i n extra-curricular activi- ties has provided enjoyment and satis- faction for Mr. Burkhardt. He has been involved with the Speech and Debate team, Drama Department, Student Sen- ate, Thespians, and the Musical. Mr. Bur- khardt explained that a teacher has more flexibility when dealing with these activi- ties. " You work with people who want to do well. This is very enjoyable be- cause you can see the students progress, " he added. After years of teaching and participa- tion, Mr. Burkhardt resigned in October. " My resignation was basically due to health reasons, " he stated. " I didn ' t think I was physically able to continue teaching. " In the meantime, Mr. Burkhardt has set some tentative plans for the future. " I have thought of subbing occasionally, " he explained. In addition, he plans to continue to work with Speech, and sell tickets at ball games. " I really hate to see a teacher leave who is so devoted to his classes and puts so much effort into teaching. He made his class enjoyable yet very infor- mative, and this makes learning fun, " stated senior Julie Burbich. Framed by his sociology students, Mr. Ed Bur- khardt explains the role of the family in society to the class. 110 Faculty Knish-Messersmith MR.

Senior-more than just an ordinary word Just a word, but it symbolizes power; a class that students long await to par- ticipate in; the authority of being able to dictate orders; a feeling, the senior. This grand word became the title for the class of 79 in early September, but the reality didn ' t set in until mid October with the start of Homecoming. The seniors introduced themselves with a banner draped from wall to wall entitled " Welcome to Senior Territory " . The seniors tied for first during the rebirth of the hall decorating contest. The seniors were rewarded with their second place float " Knock ' em Goofy " since their two previous floats placed third. Although these may have been disap- pointments, the senior girls brought back their spirits by traditionally winning the annual Junior vs. Senior Powder Puff football game 16-14. The profits from the game weren ' t a necessity for the class. The seniors had approximately $2500 in the treasury. The class officers Paul Maginot, president; Dan Cueller, vice-president, Wendy Richards, secretary-treasurer, along with the assistance of the class sponsors Mr. John McDonald, and Mr. Steve Toma- sula decided what to spend the money on. Most of the money went to pay for the senior banquet, which was not a school sponsored function. The class even decided to buy a gift for the school. Mr. Tomasula remarked, " we really had an extra amount of money. We had to find ways to spend it. " As spring rolled around, conversations of the senior trip to the Bahamas buzzed throughout the halls. For $299 seniors bathed in the sun and stuffed themselves with fresh fruit. The highlight of the year was gradu- ation, June 3. The seniors sat in the field- house in their blue and maroon gradu- ation caps and gowns anxiously awaiting for their names to be called. They walked swiftly to receive their diplomas and they peeked to reassure themselves of the signature. The feelings of relief along with freedom came over them.

Boogie, oogie, oogie, get down-A popular pasttime, the dance. Whether students preferred disco, hard rock, or soft rock there was often something that appealed to their tastes at one of the many dances organized by clubs and classes, or at one of the area discos. Whether it be a casual after the game dance, or a well planned formal, stu- dents hustled and bumped, or just lis- tened to the variety of music performed by their favorite bands. Attendance at the dances often in- creased when more well known bands were featured. Senior Sue Borto re- marked, " the band really made the dif- ference whether I attended or not. " Se- nior Kim Carbonare felt that disco dances were more enjoyable. Kim stated, " I ' d rather go to a dance with a disco band. I don ' t particularly like all hard rock. " Among the most popular bands were Together, M. R. Rush, and Monterrey. When there wasn ' t a dance at school, students often could be found dancing at one of the many area discos which featured Teen Nights. Some of these dis- cos were Club Dimensions, Rocky ' s, and The Main Event. Teen Nights gave stu- dents the opportunity to learn the latest dance steps and generally have a good time. Whether at school or at a local disco, students got up on that floor, and they boogie-oogie-oogied ' til they just couldn ' t boogie anymore. Getting down to the music of Together, senior Ka- ren jancosek moves to the latest dance steps at the dance sponsored by the Letterwomen.

MARY ANN DZIECIOLOWSKI KAREN ECHTERLING MARK ECHTERLING Pres. Classroom: six seniors visit Washington A letter or an article in the sports sec- tion of the local newspaper may be ways an athlete is praised in his or her sport. An honor student, however, usually does not receive this recognition. Instead, he or she is rewarded by being chosen for the Presidential Classroom, National Merit Scholarship Finalist, or Daughter of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award. Presidential Classroom is a concen- trated study of the United States govern- ment for selected high school seniors nationwide. Mrs. Phyllis Braun, guidance counselor, explained, " Any student who participates will understand the prob- lems of government and it should make them better citizens. " Seniors Steve Block, Tom Bosch, Kurt Kappes, Anne Luerson, Barb Pontius, and Jim Sczepaniak were nominated by English and history teachers as represen- tatives of Munster High School. The Program ' s purpose is to help st u- dents have a better understanding of American legislative, executive, and judi- cial processes. Students attended the classroom for one week. The curriculum included 15 formal seminars covering the three branches of government. Many of these seminars were on location at Capital Hill, the State Department, and the Central Intelligence Agency. These seminars were similar to press conferences, with question and answer periods between speakers and students. Steve and Kurt attended the classroom from Jan. 20-27; Anne and Barb from Feb. 3-10; and Tom and Jim from Feb. 17-24. Presidential Classroom delegates Tom Bosch, Barb Pontius, Annie Luerrson, Jim Szczepaniak, Steve Block, and Kurt Kappes make last minute prepara- tions before their trip to Washington D.C. 116 Seniors Dayney-Echterling BETH EGGEBRECHT: Gymnastics 1-4; Letterwomen 2-4.

Seniors 117 Eggebrecht- Fraser DAR, National Merit honors students “I was really surprised and honored to be chosen to represent our school for the Daughters of the American Revolu- tion (DAR) " commented senior repre- sentative Kathy Stavros. Kathy, like all other DAR winners, was judged on four personal qualities: de- pendability in truthfulness, loyalty, and punctuality; service, courtesy, and con- sideration of others; leadership in per- sonality areas of self control and respon- sibility; and patriotism. Another honor bestowed upon four seniors was being named National Merit Semi-finalist. Eligibility of this honor was based on the results of the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test (PSAT NMSQT) which was taken during the fall of their junior year. Maureen Bryan, Lisa Klobuchar, Bryan Pajor, and jim Szczepaniak were chosen, along with 15,000 other national semi-fi- nalists, representing the top one half of one per cent of all high school senior students in the United States. Maureen found that one of the bene- fits of becoming a semi-finalist was that, " it has given me more confidence in chosing a college. ! feel that I have a wider choice now. " Presidential Classroom, National Merit Scholarship semi-finalist, or a DAR win- ner may not have been suitable recogni- tion for an athlete, but for these ten se- niors an " M " or a headline on the school sports page just isn ' t enough for them. After being selected for the DAR Good Citizen Award, Senior Kathy Stavros takes a test for the state competition. National Merit Semi-finalists Maureen Bryan, Jim Szczepaniak, Lisa Klobuchar, and Bryan Pajor dis- cuss the many advantages of becoming a finalist. 118 Seniors Freeman-Gastreich NANCY M.

MARK HANUSIN Seniors 119 Gbur-Hanusin SAT ' s... prediction of rhe future Over one hundred students came in the room. With them, they carried two sharpened number two pencils and sev- enteen years of knowledge. The timer was set and in three and a half hours they finished one of the most important tests in their life. The Scholas- tic Aptitude Test (SAT) results and scores can either open or shut doors in the future. " The SAT is a way of predicting suc- cess in college ' said Mrs. Phyllis Braun, guidance counselor. " Everyone should take the test even if they don ' t plan to go to college. If a student changed their mind it would be difficult to take the test after school. " " People usually do receive higher scores during high school be- cause everything is still fresh in their mind, " encouraged Mrs. Braun. In October, the filmstrip " Lets Talk About the SAT " was made available for the students to view. This served as an aid so the student could understand the nature of the test, its purpose, and how it is used by colleges. A booklet " Taking the SAT " was an additional preparation to the test so they would know a little more of what to expect. The SAT ' s tested the students ' apti- tude in five parts. Two parts were verbal, two mathematical, and a test of standard English. How the student will do is un- predictable. Among the students who receive high grades on SAT there are some students who are not very suc- cessful as students, and among those who are quite successful in their studies. " Students may have been relieved to know that a good number of Munster High students do at least average and many higher, " explained Mrs. Braun. Ding! The timer has stopped. Their pencils are dull and their brains drained. Their knowledge and future will be de- termined by the tiny filled in circles on the IBM answer sheet they filled out. In order to prepare for the upcoming SAT ' s, senior Cary Kulesa reads the directions and procedures provided in the pamphlet before taking the sample test. 120 Seniors Harder-Henson BILL HARDER VICKY HARDING: NHS 3- 4; PARAGON 3-4; Quill and Scroll 3-4; OEA 3; Powder Puff 3; Intramurals 1; Outdoors Club 2-3.

Compared to previous years, the Class of 79 had the largest number of mid- term graduates. Because of this large amount, the number of students in first semester Senior Classes came to an abundant sum. In turn, the administra- tion is reconsidering allowing the seniors to have an early release from school. Mr. lames Bawden, Assistant Principal for pupil services stated, " We will still con- tinue next year allowing students to graduate midterm, but if first semester senior classes are becoming too full, we will have to stop giving students this privilege. " " Graduating midterm is a good op- portunity for seniors because if you ' re going to college it gives you a few extra months, " commented senior Mary Reck. Most students who finished in January went to work, either to get money for college, or to start a life of their own. Se- nior Cheryl Spurlock went on working after high school to make some extra money for her future. Senior Meg Schwerin, after finishing early, attended beauty school to become a beautician. Meg concluded that, " I really think midterm graduation is a fantastic oppor- tunity for seniors. I had to get everything done in the first semester, but it was all worth it. " Hurrah! It’s really over! Senior Cheryl Spurlock ex- presses her happiness as she cleans out her locker for the last and final time before midterm graduation. 122 Seniors Klyczek- Knutson ROBERT SCOTT KNUTSON: Basket- ball 1-3; Baseball 1; Football 1; Class Officer 2.

Those who were less fortunate sacrificed as much as $50 to the " scalpers " . " Waiting in line for the gates to open was the bad part, " explained senior Carol Terpstra. " We left at 1 :00 the night before, and there were thousands at the concert before us. I lost my shoes get- ting pushed into the gates, but it was de- finately worth it. " Beside the concerts in Chicago, the Hammond Civic Center held concerts a little closer to home. Although the Civic Center was not equipped to hold as many people as auditoriums in Chicago, they still featured popular bands such as Rush, REO Speedwagon, Blue Oyster Cult, and UFO. One advantage to Civic Center concerts was that it was only a 15 minute drive from home, so more stu- dents had the opportunity to attend them. . . . Tiny matchlights glowed in the air as the crowd begged for one last encore. Finally, the lights came back on, as people left their seats and reluctantly went to their cars. The concert was over, i but the memory would linger on. A ticket will get you in the door. As part of his duties as a ticket salesman at Ticketron, senior Bill Mulhearn reserves tickets for a customer before an upcoming rock concert. 124 Seniors Luksich-Mandel 1 CAROLYN MANLEY: AFS 2-3 (V.

Weekends: Moris for having fun 5-4-3-2-1 — Brrrrrrrrrrrring! It ' s 2:38 Friday after- noon . . . the time every student looks forward to. The weekend has begun! Weekends, for the most part, were a time to leave behind the pressures of school, get together with friends, and generally have fun. Sleeping late in the morning and staying out later at night were two of the favorite habits of the weekend. Friday night football or bas- ketball games, dances, and parties were the majority of the weekend activities. " I look forward to weekends as a break from school and everyday rou- tines, " stated senior Linda Biedron. " I like to go out with my friends and go to parties and have a good time. " Senior Lisa Dillard likes weekends be- cause " I can sleep later and see some of my friends who don ' t live in Munster, who I don ' t get a chance to see otherwise. " Weekends also enabled students to earn extra money. Senior Kristi Kocal feels " there are big advantages to work- ing on the weekend. You can earn more money by working longer hours on weekends and working then usually doesn ' t interfere with your schoolwork. " . . . Bzzzzzzzzz! It ' s 6:30 Monday morning. Time to crawl out of bed and get ready for school. It seems like it all went by too soon . . . the games, parties, sleeping late, movies— During a Friday night party at a friend ' s house ju- nior Dawn Smick and seniors Sue Borto and Pam Prendergast discuss about their weekend plans.

Growling stomachs, moans and groans, and many complaints can be heard throughout the halls whether va- cations near or athletes preparing for their upcoming season. When spring break nears, students attempt to take off the extra weight they have put on over the long, cold months. Athletes some- times go on crash diets to lose those 10 extra pounds before Friday ' s game or meet. Unless you are in a sport or have your own exercise plan, staying in shape can be quite a task after the winter season, junior Pam Thomae agrees. " It ' s harder to stay active in the winter so I always put on weight. Then when springs comes, I have to starve myself! " Athletes may also be found roaming the halls with grumbling stomachs. Some are forced to keep their weight down in order to keep up their performance in their individual sport. " Losing weight is the most difficult part of wrestling. John Remmers, junior, explains, " since the first thing you face is the scale. " " In gynmastics we are weighed in each week and if we ' re over our weight, we get penalized and get points against us, " stated junior Nancy Hulett. Miss Kathy Dartt, gymnastic coach added, " the reason I insist that the girls keep their weight down is that when they gain weight, they lose their timing and cannot perform as well. " Many people use numerous methods to lose that extra weight. Some try cut- ting down on carbohydrates, or getting more exercise, while others insist on tak- ing diet pills. But, no matter what the method, or what the reason behind it, dieting is never easy. In an attempt to keep their weight down, seniors Laura Miller, Wendy Richardson, and Debbie Brandt munch on apples during their lunch period.

Port rime help needed... call after 5p.m. Wanted: High school student. At least 16 yrs for part time work as counter help at Main Street Mall. Apply in person. " Wow, this one seems really great. It ' s the one I ' ve been looking for over three weeks now. The only thing it doesn ' t say there is how much we make and if we get fringe benefits . . . Oh well. I ' ll ask them when I apply Apply? " This seems to be the ritual one must go through before getting hired and start becoming just one of the million people in the hustling and bustling place called the employment world. After digging among the want ads and finding the one that appeals to you, you must apply. Then if called, you must get yourself prepared for the interview. It may seem to be like you ' re playing the game of 20 questions, but once it ' s over and you ' ve got the job, it doesn ' t seem bad. After being hired, a training session begins, and step by step you work your way up the ladder. The beginning step is always the most nerve-racking. You may get a name tag with trainee engraved on it, but what this really means is " handle with care. " People really don ' t read it, they just keep asking you questions that you have no answers to. At the end of the day you probably have a headache and are to- tally confused, but after two weeks, a paycheck seems to make it all worthwhile. For some people a paycheck isn ' t the only thing they look forward to. Senior Barb Ford explains, " The reason in hav- ing a job, I feel, goes passed getting a paycheck. It ' s getting rewarded in a way for something you accomplished and it gives you a good feeling. " But for some a paycheck is the only sense of reward. " My paycheck, helps me so that I can achieve my goal for col- lege in the future, " concluded senior Sue Harwood. To help raise extra money for college, senior Dean Moya and junior Dave Murakowski carry out one of their many duties at their part time jobs. Many popular after-school jobs for seniors ranged from working at MacDonalds to being stock boys at nearby stores.

Waking up to a cold car in mid-winter at 7:30 a.m. is not the average student ' s idea of a good time. While trudging out- side through knee-deep snow to the car, he gropes for his keys. Finally the key slides into the lock and he finds that the locks are frozen. Terrific! Using a blow- torch enters his mind, but he decides to work on it for a while longer before doing anything rash. Click. It ' s finally opened! After some time, the car skids out of the driveway while the uneasy driver frantically hopes that all snowbanks and garbage cans are cleared away. Soon the car enters the unplowed road and strug- gles to get through the snow onto a main street. Inching out into intersections because the corners are now huge mountains of snow blocking the visibility of oncoming cars, he hopes that traffic is not ap- proaching. When he thinks he can make it in the streamline of vehicles, the car ' s wheels begin spinning with no effect on the car ' s movement. Slowly moving with the flow of snow- covered automobiles, he finally reaches his destination, school, only to find him- self in another dilemma. Students ' cars are to fit into half the regular number of parking spaces. Students that drive to school face many predicaments during the winter. Now that juniors were per- mitted to park in the school lot, parking spaces were even more limited. As one senior commented, “during the winter, it ' s an endless game of someone taking your space. " While hiding from the blowing snow behind the hood, senior Chris Markovich tries to figure out how to get his car to start.

A guy may wonder how he can ask her out? Should he ask her for Friday or Saturday night? Where should they go ... to a movie, to a game? Maybe he ' s not even sure if he can have the car. On the other hand, the girl might be thinking, what can I wear, where is he going to take me, and what are we going to talk about that night? Many teens go through this kind of or- deal every Friday or Saturday night, when students take advantage of their free evenings, whether it be a date with the girl in his English class or the guy she has been eyeing in the hall for the past semester, it ' s special. After he ' s gotten up the courage and . asked her out, he doesn ' t have to worry about being posed with the usual game of 20 questions about his father ' s job or his family. This old-fashion idea of a date has indeed changed in the past decade and become more and more extinct. Along with the traditional idea, the cost of going out these days has drastic- ally turned. Movies alone cost anywhere from $7 to $10 a couple and that doesn ' t even include the popcorn or snacks which are so much a part of the show. Going to parties has become the core of most dates. For many, parties are an inexpensive form of entertainment. Many people can see their friends and enjoy the beat of the music surrounding them. If there ' s nothing else going on nearby, you ' re always guaranteed that there will be at least one party going on. The parties help to deviate the problem of nervousness present on the first date. They help fade away the jitters which might be present. Once the party is over and the night draws to a close, those jitters begin to disappear. All the questions which were running through your mind at the start of the evening are now gone. Now all your worries are over— that is until you go out the next time. While walking through the snow, a senior couple share a quiet moment after a busy day at school.

THAD WACHALA Seniors Truver-Wachala 135 Treats tantalize TV viewers Lip-smacking, mouth-watering, finger- licking good food . . . Are you hungry yet? Developing an unavoidable case of the munchies is not uncommon for many television watchers. One may crave a small but satisfying candy bar or a juicy steak and baked potato smoth- ered with butter and sour cream. What causes that incurable condition of mun- chie-itis? Did you ever notice which com- mercials are shown during TV prime time? The majority of commercials are for food. They range from Sara Lee and M M ' s to MacDonald ' s and Kentucky Fried Chicken. One cannot avoid listen- ing to the expert use of adjectives de- scribing the product. While watching a smooth stream of milk chocolate flow- ing over a cluster of peanuts, one can in- stantly develop munchie-itis. The won- derful ways adjectives may be used can even make dogfood appealing. Is this fair to the television spectator? It seems that the average onlooker is being taken advantage of by these com- mercials. As the television is turned on, these unethical fiends raid the minds of the innocent watchers with thoughts of pizza covered with hot, gooey cheese and spicy sausage, and a bowl of fresh strawberries topped with a dollop of rich, dairy whipped cream. Flow is one to rid his mind of these reoccurring visions of crisp potato chips wrapped in creamy French onion dip? Will there ever be a satisfying solution? We hope that there won ' t be. With a variety of his favorite " junk food " sur- rounding him, senior Greg Chona munches down without considering the nutritional value of the food he ' s eating.

Leaders use this word to declare peace or war. The names of several nations contain this word. This word is united or unity. Unity is recognized as being one of the key ingredients for success. United we stand, divided we fall. Like the great leaders throughout history, The Junior Class officers Cathy Reppa, presi- dent; Julie Lanman, vice president; and John Remmers, secretary-treasurer recognized the importance of unity. " We wanted the whole class involved and to know what ' s going on. We wanted class unity, " commented Cathy. Prom was the main consideration of the of- ficers. With the theme " Always and Forever, " the Junior Class divided into different com- mittees, but worked as one. " The officers are given a certain task to complete and to get the committees working, Cathy is sort of an overseer. The different things are turned into her, " added Mr. Roger McCary, Class sponsor. The Class float was also a major activity of the officers. " Put ' em under pressure " was se- lected as the theme. Dumbo, the high-flying elephant of Walt Disney, was featured sitting on top of a football player. To help finance prom and the float, fundrai- sers such as a dance and a candy sale were planned. " We could have sold more M M ' s but we didn ' t want to draw out the sale. We wanted to get the money turned in so we could con- centrate on prom, " explained John. As in world affairs, unity played a major role for a successful prom, float, and fund raisers. As class officers Cathy Reppa, )ohn Remmers, and Julie Lanman look on, Mr. Roger McGary, sponsor, counts the day ' s receipts from prom ticket sales.

During the winter months, six juniors were named to the American Legion Hoosier Boys and Girls State. These students attended In- diana State University in Terre Haute during a selected week in June. The program was sponsored by the Ameri- can Legion and was set up to teach students how to apply the use of politics in Indiana. The students were assigned a county resi- dence and a political party. The delegates at- tended government classes to become famil- iar with the number of duties of the various political and election offices. Once elections were held, the chosen dele- gates carried on various functions of all the departments of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. In addition to the six delegates to State, six other junior students were chosen to partici- pate in the Indiana University Honors Pro- gram that was held six weeks in the summer. These students traveled to Krefeld, Ger- many to learn the customs and culture of a different country. During their stay, the stu- dents were not allowed to speak a word of English. The students attended regular morn- ing classes and traveled to other nearby countries for a short stay. To become eligible for the program, the students had to take tests, fill out applications, and be interviewed before the final selection was made. " I felt very fortunate to be one of thirty in the state to be chosen for the I.U. Honors Pro- gram. Being chosen was a big surprise for me and I feel it is the greatest experience in my life, " commented junior Janice Levy. Girls and Boys State. Front Row: Stan Zygmunt, Suzy Strater, Judy Brauer.

Everyone matures at their own rates, usually girls faster than guys. Obvious evidence of this is shaving. Female juniors confessed that they started shaving their legs at about the age of 12. Guys, on the other hand, have to wait until about the age of 16, before they shave their faces. There is also a great difference in the way they dress. Aside from the obvious differences guys always seem to be seen in the same old pair of jeans and a great assortment of T-shirts throughout their high school life. Girls start out with jeans their freshman year and " work " their way out of jeans and into skirts, dresses, and nice pants. This helps them avoid the em- barrasing bulges that tight jeans can bring out. Some think that in order to feel grown up they have to look the part as well. Make-up is the best way to do this. Long hours in front of a mirror are spent in order to get ready to meet the public. Girls aren ' t the only ones at fault when it comes to putting on the finishing touches. Walking down the hall look at any guys hair, not a single strand will be out of its place. An eternity is spent blow drying, combing, brush- ing and combing again before a guy will even step outside. All this is not to be made fun of. There is not one person who can honestly say they don ' t take pride in how they look before the door is opened and they step outside. It is all part of growing up. Applying the finishing touches is important in anyone ' s appearance, junior judy Brauer adds touches to her make-up after tennis practice.

Today ' s fashions and fads not only reflect a mood of freedom, but also a move backwa rds in time. A few years ago, who would have thought that today ' s trends would have revealed such things as discos, skateboarding, below-knee hemlines, disco fasions, designer jeans, neck- ties for women, and Annie-Hall blouses? But it ' s true. In 1979 disco fever hit the na- tion with unprecedented impact. The most obvious influence was in music. This could be measured by the increase in exclusively disco radio stations, and even in the conversion of WDAI, a major album-rock station, to strictly disco. Disco influenced many other areas, in- cluding movies, television, and fashions. “Sat- urday Night Fever " , which was one of the most successful movies of the year, was said to have been the start of Disco-mania. Disco ' s influence can be seen in fashions. Satin Pants, glitter blouses, and disco dresses were popular. Outfits were completed with small disco bags; long, knotted disco scarfs; and spiked heel shoes. The media influenced fashions in other ways also. The movie " Annie Hall " brought about a fashion trend in Annie Hall necktie blouses, and straight-leg pants. “Annie Hall " was also part of a growing de- sire to return to traditional styles. Longer hem- lines of the 50 ' s and shoulder padded blazers of the 40 ' s both made a comeback, jeans dressed up a bit with the appearance of de- signer jeans and could be found adorned with satin, glitter, or embroidery, again for the disco dresser. 1979 basically was a year of going back to traditional values, but with the added spunk of disco. Fads and fashions have been in- fluenced by these changes in values. Old tra- ditions and new-these were the fashion trends seen in 1979. Wearing a fashionable wool jacket and skirt, junior Pam DeRolf grades papers as part of her duties as a lab aid.

Many of them do not find time to do this, so they turn to a student aide for help. Teacher ' s aides are students who volunteer their free time to " rescuing teachers who are in distress, " as one aide explained. They do little errands for them that make school life a little easier for teachers to handle. These little errands may be anything from typing up a test to mailing a letter. " I issue passes to students and help in office activities su ch as paper work, " stated junior Janet Not- toli, Guidance Department aide. " My job consists of stamping out books, keeping the shelves in order and filing maga- zines, " explained junior Laura Winkler, library aide. " Also, I do other jobs that Mrs. Joseph needs help with. " Being a guidance and library aide has as ad- vantage over other aides. These two depart- ment aides earn a credit for devoting their time. Because of this, problems can arise. " I don ' t think it is fair because we devote just as much time in helping our teachers as guidance and library aides do, " said math aide junior Lisa Lopiccolo. But the disputes over the credits might be coming to an end. The chance of earning an extra credit or being a library or guidance aide might soon be dropped. " I ' ve heard much talk about the subject of earning no credits as of the next school year. I really don ' t think this is fair because my kids really work hard and they deserve the extra credit, " commented Mrs. Cheryl Joseph, librarian. Mrs. Nancy Hastings, journalism teacher, feels " my aides really help get me through the day. They help me count the money made af- ter selling Crier and they do jobs I don ' t have time to do. " Junior Janet Nottoli summed it up though, " I look at it this way, it ' s alot better than being cooped up in a study hall. " As part of her job as a library aide, junior Laura Winkler helps a student check out library materials while head li- brarian Mrs. Cheryl Joseph sorts out magazine slips. 146 Juniors Sbalchiero- Stojkovich Not Pictured: Delores Beatty Brandon Carpenter Scott Dixon Jeff lackman Dave Kipta Jeanne Kovach Frank Nielsen Kenneth Orlich Greg Pazdur David Perdicaris Sandy Sefton Mark Sickles Philip Smigiel Bob Wilk Richard Winstead Dianna Strange Suzie Strater Ellen Sullivan David Swanson David Szakacs Jack Tange rman Tevi Tarler Pamela Thomae Susan Thornes Brian Thompson Harry Thompson Dan Thornberry Michael Thornton Terry Thrall Elaine Tobin Kim Torok Paul Trgovich Gus Tsiakopolos Julie Tussey Dan Valko Greg Van der Wey Marc Voirol Peter Vukovich Laura Waisnora Noreen Walsh Nena Watson Patrick Watson Adele Webber Anita Webber Mary Webber Chris Westerfield Brent Wharff James Whitted Pam Wiley Brian Williams Laura Winkler Elizabeth Wojciechowski Mike Wozniak Jeff Wulf Rosemarie Wulf Robert Zahrndt Robert Zondor Amy Zucker Stanley Zygmunt Juniors 147 Strange-Zygmunt Don ' t you wish you were a...? If big letters prove who is the best, seniors would definitely walk away with the cake as they demonstrated at the Highland pep rally. But they received tough competition from the Freshman Class. Class spirit comes alive as juniors Reed Oslan and Jeff Lasky support their Class at the Powder Puff Game and sophomores Ed Gomez and Lisa Glowacki paint a Mickey Mouse poster for the hall decorating contest during Spirit Week. Graduation Day . . . the only time a senior wants to be a freshman again. What really separates the classes? Height, weight, looks, or just plain class rivalries. Who is better? The freshmen because they tied with the sophomores and seniors in the Homecoming hall competition; the sophomores who won the float competition; the juniors because of all their spirit, or the seniors just because of the fact that they are seniors? Senior Pam Seefurth thinks seniors are considered better because “they have been through school for 12 years and now they know all of the ins and outs of school. " How can you tell who the seniors are? Not by size. Maybe the only way you can tell who they are is by the Composition, Government, or Sociology books that they carry while walking down the halls. Then again, it could be because they are the only ones who get to leave school early while everybody else is sitting through boring lectures, filmstrips, and challenging tests. “The thing about seniors is that they can act like freshmen, but it ' s okay since they are seniors, " commented freshman Michele Kelchak. While the seniors have the advantage of doing what they want, the juniors, who are also upperclassmen, have to act with some integrity. junior Jeff Lasky stated, " we ' re just sort of stuck in the middle. You sit on the bench at basketball games, and you don ' t get to play in the important baseball games. You can ' t go to parties because they are only for seniors. " The sophomores are looking forward to the day when they leave the underclassmen to take the big step to becoming upperclassmen. Sophomore Cheryl Morgan explained, " being a sophomore is more exciting than being a freshman. As Sophs, the class has much more spirit because we finally realize what is expected of us. " The sophomores are just a step away from " upperclassmenship " , but the freshmen have a long way to go. " In eighth grade you were finally the oldest, when you ' re a freshman, you become a little kid again, " explained freshman Dan Kmak. But the freshmen and sophomores have proven to be more than just underclassmen. Through their display of class spirit and all-out rowdiness, they rank among the juniors and seniors. Is the difference all in a student ' s mind or is there some substance to the difference? It ' s just a matter of opinion. 149 Hard work brightens up Soph Class label Each particular grade level in high school has its own distinct characteristics. As a fresh- man, you ' re razzed about finally being associ- ated with " older peers " . When you become a junior, people comment about reaching the long destinated title of an upperclassmen. During your senior year that trite question " are you going to college? " seems to be the topic of every day. However, as a sophomore you ' re usually considered " just there. " Being " just there " would not satisfy the Class of ' 81. Under the leadership of Mark Lu- berda, president; lack Krawczyk, vice-presi- dent; Ed Gomez, secretary-treasurer; and Mr. George Pollingue, sponsor, the Sophomore Class proved that they could do more than that. Their first attempt at building a Home- coming float dumbfounded the rest of the student body and faculty. The sophomore float with the slogan " Club ' Em " and featuring Mickey Mouse took the winning title. This was the first time in six years that the Sophomore Class float placed first in the float com- petition. The Sophomore Class also tied with the freshmen and seniors in the hall decora- ting contest. To raise money for their future floats, and the ' 80 prom, the class sponsored bake sales, car washes and a dance. Their main money making project was a light bulb sale. Over 5000 light bulbs were sold bringing in over $1200. Sophomore Jack Krawczyk explained, " we needed a class project that would neces- sitate full class participation, and also raise our class account to the maximum. After count- less meetings we decided upon the one that burned the brightest among the rest, light bulbs! " By the time June rolled around, the soph- omores proved that through hard work, dedi- cation, and class spirit, they were more than just the middle class.

" But the party was so much fun. " Unfortunately you know that your mother won ' t accept an overused excuse like that. Pulling in the driveway you notice that your mother is waiting up for you. All you can do now is hope a good excuse hits you before you walk in the door. Curfews are the taboo of a teenager ' s life. They seem to limit the excitement of the eve- ning to the stroke of midnight, the typical late night deadline. With this time as the final rule, your plans can sometimes be spoiled or tarnished. Soph- omore Lisa Mauer agrees, " it ' s hard to have a good time when you ' re constantly watching the clock. " The clock watching process cannot only by annoying, it ' s not always the most reliable. The old adage " time flies when you ' re having fun " tends to hold true, but somehow, parents never seem to understand this obsolete excuse. " Time flies when your having fun, " or " we had a flat tire " and " we ran out of gas " unfor- tunately will not get you out of trouble any- more. If you are creative enough to come up with the ultimate excuse, only then will your grounding be dismissed . . . hopefully. Sometimes though, between the time you walk from the car, into the dreaded face-to- face confrontation with your mom, that per- fect reason for tardiness doesn ' t pop into your head. After struggling with various attempts, resulting in blank stares, you give in and de- cide to take the upcoming punishment. Thus, you are left without T.V. for a night, the phone for a week, or the worst, your freedom for the following Friday and Saturday. 1:23 a.m. You grumble into bed wondering how much longer you can take this. Finally you forget about it and fall asleep. Quietly sneaking in so that nobody will hear her, soph- omore Lisa Mauer attempts to get past her parents with- out getting caught for coming in late.

Although this may resemble a sound of the future, in reality it ' s just the latest in computer games. Computer games, ranging from Pro-1 to Pro-1 1 football games to the " Simon-Sez " game for the youngsters, are dominating the entertainment field. Their popularity has reached people of all ages and is continuing to spread through the nation. But, what do people see in these computer games and why are they so amusing? " I think people buy computer games since they provide a new kind of challenge for the individual, " exclaimed sophomore Mladen Kralj. " Not a great deal of thinking is involved in these games. All you have to do is press a couple buttons and you can win. " No matter where you turn, you can almost always be sure that you will see someone playing with some type of computer game. The cost of these games may run as high as $37, but if you ' re lucky you might be able to buy them on sale for $25. " I bought a computer game because I thought it was a good way to relax, " explained sophomore Mladen Kralj. " It comes in handy when I have nothing else to do. " Indeed, the convenience of these computer games is readily seen. You can take them along with you if you ' re going somewhere. Also, besides providing entertainment, some computers can help the young pre-schooler in solving easy mathematical problems. And once the player scores a point or gets a cor- rect answer by himself he is rewarded either by a buzzing sound or a flashing light. Whatever purpose they may serve, comput- ers are becoming more and more popular. Are computer games on their way to becom- ing a fad or are they already a fad? No matter what the answer is, don ' t be surprised the next time you hear a Bleepity-bleep-bleep-bleep when you walk down the hall. It ' s just the sound coming from one of the various toys that may well take over the entertainment field of the future computer game world. Testing his skills on one of the newest computer games, sophomore Mladen Kralj raGes against the clock to score a touchdown in the Pro-ll football game.

Things are really different here at Munster High than at our school. Here sophomores have to take Physical Education with freshmen. What a drag! I was talking with some other kids in my class, about being in a freshmen populated class, and Mike Etling said that it doesn ' t make any difference to him, but he feels, " more people look up to me since I ' m older and def- initely more wiser. " This girl I met, Rene Gray, doesn ' t mind having the class with freshmen. She feels that it is not a question of grades or people, but rather of athletic ability. It ' s really weird here. Health and Safety can ' t be taken your freshman year. Any time after that is okay, but usually sophomores take it. It really is a fun class. Lisa Fitt said, " it ' s fun when you have the right people in it. " Margie Meagher agreed and added, " the teacher makes it exciting, but homework is a bummer. " Then Lisa said, " by eliminating Health and Safety your sophomore year you have more freedom to pick courses that inter- est you as a junior. " One thing that every sophomore here is looking forward to is Drivers Education. Heidi Langendorff said she looks forward to getting her license since her friends have theirs. The kids don ' t seem to mind having to go to summer school to take Driver ' s Ed., but any other class, well that ' s a different story. Most of the students aren ' t afraid of getting behind the wheel, or so they say, but knowing me, I ' ll be shaking like a leaf. Well, the bell is about to ring. Please write me and tell me how things are going with you. Say hi to everyone. Mary With hopes of helping her classmate understand the complexities of the ear, sophomore Sue Biedron points out the hammer, anvil, and the stirrup. 1 56 Sophomores Moffett-Pawlus Dru Payne Steve Pazanin Anne Perdicaris Jim Peterman Cary Peterson Tim Peterson Guy Perot Steve Pfister Michael Phipps Pam Pilarczyk Kelly Plesha Mike Pluard Christine Podolak Joe Poi Nick Pokrifcak Patty Pondusa Glori Popiela Lanaii Pool Mark Porter Mary Potasnik David Potkul Kenneth Powell Sally Powell Jeff Prendergast Henry Preston Mike Pruzin John Przybysz Tricia Puncho Greg Puls Karen Rasmus Cecila Reck Patty Reddel Charles Reed Gayle Reichett Liz Remmers Chris Resler B ob Rhind Tracy Rigg Lynn Rizzo Beverly Rompola Mike Ronschke Manuel Rosario Dana Roth Robert Rudakas Michelle Rudzinski Greg Ryan Frank Sakelaris Tom Sannito Sophomores 157 Payne-Sannito ' Yes, Friday ar 7:30 is fine Mrs. Srone ' " Hello, this is Mrs. Stone, are you free to ba- bysit for me tonight? " Your reply is a definite, enthusiastic " yes " , as this will be your source of income for the upcoming week. Being a sophomore poses many obstacles as far as finances go. At this point the average teen will need extra spending money for such things as make-up, wardrobe, recreation, and entertainment. Most anyone can be qualified for the job because there are few requirements: one being you must be blessed with a lot of pa- tience and another, you must have a strong sense of responsibility. Although the designated time of arrival home may be set at 11 p.m., your service may be taken advantage of until the wee hours of the morning, so be prepared. Many parents are satisfied with the sole pleasure of escaping their brood for a few hours. Others may decide they want to get their money ' s worth and tack on a few extra tasks such as washing the dishes, vacuuming, and dusting. For such a pittance of pay you may be expected to be a substitute mother and cleaning lady rolled into one. Soon after you have tucked the kiddies into bed and settled down to relax in front of the T.V., with potato chips, pop, and phone in hand, you ' re subject to hearing moaning and screaming coming from upstairs. At this time a story of their choice, or the " drastically needed " drink of water is usually requested before they are satisfied. As you sleepily await the return of the par- ents, you silently swear you ' ll never submit yourself to such punishment again. Until you become a junior you secretly know you ' ll be apt to say " yes " time and time again. Mental anguish of this menial job is relieved, and will soon be forgotten when the car pulls up the drive. In order to financially make ends meet, sophomore Rose DeBarge must spend at least one weekend night tending for the little ones. 1 58 Sophomores Sartain-Shahbazi Mari Sartain Michael Scherer Kathleen Scheuermann Larry Schmock Paula Schoenberg |ohn Scholl Robert Schoonmaker Amy Schroer Keith Schartz JoAnne Sears Ralph Sebring Frank Serletic Adrienne Serna Jose Serrano Ashish Shah Dan Shahbazi Tom Sheridan Susan Slivka Dale Slosser Lynn Smallman David Smisek Jim Smith Mary Smith Scott Smith Cindy Snow Colleen Snow Karen Sohacki Linda Spurlock Greg Starred George Stavros Ann Stepniewski Kathryn Sterbenc Joe Stodola Kelley Svenningsen Jim Such Diane Swanson Karyl Sweeney Nina Swing Tony Ta vitas Karen Terranova Janet Thomas Roanne Thomas Vesna Trikich Jon Trusty Georgia Tsakopoulos Bob Uptain Michele Uram Marina Urosevich Bob Vale Jim Vandertoll Janna VerPloeg Sharon Vierk Lynda Voirol Dawn Vukovich John Wachala Kim Wasilak Janet Watson David Webb Rudy Wein Brian Welsh Tammy Westerfield Jerry Wicinski David Williams Mary Wilson Donald Winstead Deborah Witham Sandy Wolak John Woloch Kathy Woodward JoAnn Wrobel Bruce Yalowitz Jim Yasko Herb Yekel Paul Yorke Michelle Yosick Ted Ziants Steven Zeldenrust Janet Zondor Gail Zubay f Carol Brouwers 1963-1978 Rich Thomae . 1963-1978 Not Pictured: John Alexiou Craig Angel Sharon Bohling Karen Callahan Karen Comanse Dave Dalessandro Mike Daves Kim Fajman Victor Finke Robert Gaskey Joanne Griger Steve Hudnall Mark Ludders Brian Matthews Bill Meredith Greg Moore Craig Murad Laura Murakowski Ted Muta Johnna Passales Peggi Powers Krystal Przybyl Ilya Schwartzman Violet Sfouris Cindy Soderquist Edye Spungen Margaret Vasquez Theresa Yeng Sandy Zahrndt Sophomores 159 Sheridan-Zubay Scott Anderson Michael Anasewicz Karen Atlas Jane Austgen Michelle Bados Mark Bainbridge Terri Bame Paul Banas Dan Bard Jennifer Baron Michael Barth Jenny Beck Margaret Behrens Bryan Bennett Michelle Biesen Tim Bocard Karen Boda Paul Boege Sherryl Bopp Jerry Bowen Bob Bowling Mark Boyd Mindy Brandt Bruce Braun Cheryl Brazel Jennifer Bretz Timothy Broderick Dan Brown Mike Bukowski Patty Burns Thomas Calligan Donald Calvert Leslie Camino Caryn Cammarata Mara Candelaria Louie Carbonare Bob Carlson David Carlson Elias Carras Eric Carter John Cerajewski Kelly Chapin Scott Chapin Mike Chelich Jackie Chiaro Randy Chip Kimberly Chudom Melanie Cigler Cary Clark Jeff Cleland Kym Clouse Linda Colgrove David Coltun Charles Comanse Kevin Condon Karen Corsiglia Kim Croach Kenneth Croner Scott Crucean Deborah Culbertson Doug Curtis Debbie DeChantal Linda Dejesus Tad DeLaney Chris DePorter Lori Dernulc Gerald DeYoung Claire Dixon Melissa Dombrowski Leslie Doyle Lisa Doyle Serge Dubovitsky 160 Freshman Anderson-Dubroff Richard Dubroff Bryan Duffala Gary Dunning Phil Dybel Rosemary Echterling Cindy Elkins Suzanne Elnaggar Robyn Eisner Irene Fabislak LuAnn Farrell Thomas Figler Chris Finkiewicz Larry Fisher Kathy Fitt David Foreit Lynetta Frank Novices find they belong Freshman— a beginner, a novice; a young student in a new building-the high school. Although most beginners are a little timid about getting involved, 408 freshmen didn ' t waste much time in adjusting to high school life. Early in September, class members elected representatives to serve on the stu- dent Government Class Executive Council (CEC) and Pride Committee (PC). The 10 Class Executive Council members elected Julie Levy, president; Tricia Ulber, vice presi- dent; and Lisa Gerdt, secretary-treasurer. With new officers and student government repre- sentatives, the class settled into high school routine. Their first and most important test of prov- ing whether they were beginners or not oc- curred at Homecoming when they were re- sponsible for decorating the high school cafeteria relating to the theme of " Walt Dis- ney World " and were responsible for serving refreshments at the Homecoming dance. " Even though Homecoming wasn ' t a money making activity for the Freshman Class, it still proved to be the main function for us, " explained Mr. Don Fortner, Freshman Class sponsor. The Freshman Class also showed that they weren ' t so inexperienced when they managed to capture a first place along with the sophomores and seniors in the Homecoming decoration contest. But, the activities for the Freshman Class didn ' t stop here. The class also took part in many money making activities beginning with the organization of a spaghetti dinner in the winter. It was then followed by bake sales and candy sales and concluded with the sponsor- ing of a spring dance. The reason the class needed to plan money making events was, according to Mr. Fortner, " because most of our activities and funds are planned to help out with future floats and with prom. " Throughout all of their activities, the Fresh- man Class proved that even though they were new, they weren ' t that inexperienced. Though most freshmen are looked down upon as be- ginners, this Freshman Class demonstrated that they were as strong as the looked upon ' experienced ' upperclassmen.

" " Promo will have a mandatory meeting in the Pub after school Tuesday. " Many freshmen find themselves lost and confused when it comes to joining clubs and organizations. Often freshmen ask them- selves, " what is all this about? How can I par- ticipate in clubs when I don ' t even understand what they are? " As the year progresses some freshmen may decide to explore these clubs while others de- cide to remain uninvolved. Freshmen also get confused when it comes to reading their class scheules. Some of the symbols and abbreviations mean no more to them than ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. Ron Pasko, freshman, stated, " I think that finding my classes was most confusing, especially classes in the South building. The many lunch lines also ended up in the salad bar line, rather than in line for " today ' s special. " After a day of this confusion, all that echoed through the heads of the freshmen was the fa- miliar saying, " That ' s all for this morning, Thank You " . . .

" " V-l-C-T-O-R-Y! " screamed 456 freshmen, amid rolls of thrown toilet paper and layers of confetti. Could it be? Freshmen yelling at a Pep Ses- sion instead of remaining quiet? In the past, class spirit had always been re- served for the upperclassmen. Once you were a junior or a senior, you were thought to have the most spirit, or be the rowdiest. And of course, it was unheard of if the juniors or the seniors didn ' t win the " Battle Cry " cheer. However, upperclassmen were in for an ex- treme surprise. As the freshmen filed into the fieldhouse on that warm October day for the first pep ses- sion of the year, little did the up perclassmen realize what was to come. Out of the nor- mally meek corner of the bleachers came screams and shouts from supposed timid little freshmen. " Beat Highland! Beat Highland! " , they chanted throughout the fieldhouse. Jaws dropped as their peers stared in awe at the new-found rowdy group. Freshmen spirit did not stop at the pep ses- sion. It continued on throughout Home- coming Spirit Week as the freshmen dressed up as their favorite martian or mom in her high school dress. Spirit bubbled forth when the rest of the student body was appalled as the freshmen tied for first place along with the sophomores and seniors in the first annual hall decorations contest. What ' s the Freshmen battle cry? This time the upperclassmen knew what to expect. Showing their rowdiness during the Highland pep rally, freshmen express their enthusiasm by standing and shout- ing during the battle cry cheer.

Even though they were sometimes tormented by up- perclassmen, freshmen strove to make them- selves well known at the bottom of the ladder. The beginning of the year brought many changes for the Class of ' 82. They were faced with jammed lockers, and two buildings to choose from to find their classes. Their class- mates began to socially divide, and many freshmen wondered where they might fit in. More homework, and harder classes also baf- fled their minds. As the year progressed, freshmen began to climb up the ladder, by having some money- making activities including bake sales and car washes. They were starting to fit in, and were enjoying some of those changes which first confused them. Lynda Witkowski liked high school because “there were more sports that girls can participate in, such as basketball, swimming, and golf. At the middle school we weren ' t offered these things. " When June came along, Freshmen began to look forward to their next year. They then moved up to the second step of the ladder: the status of " Sophomore " was to come. Caught in between passing periods of classes, freshman Scott Vonover takes time out to talk to senior Mike Mil- lies, despite the large size difference. 166 Freshmen Mulligan-Nelson )oe Nelson Mike Nelson Tammy Ness Cathy Newell Susan Oberlander Sharon Obuch Jeff Odonnell Jennifer Ogorek Kim Olds Phyllis Opatera Carole Orosco Karla Pajor Richard Palmer Laura Papp Helene Pappas Sonja Paragina Ron Pasko Caroline Paulson Debbie Peterson Don Peterson Scott Petrie Diane Pieczykolan Debbie Poi Vincent Pokrifcak Carol Pontius Lynn Powell Patti Powers Phil Pramuk Wendy Przybyl Gina Pupillo Ken Racich Todd Rakos Lisa Ramirez Mary Ramirez Frank Rapin Brian Read Dan Reck Laurelyn Rednour Carolyn Reppa Craig Rice Kim Richards Bob Rigg Pam Roberts David Robinson Sharon Rogers Marina Rosales John Rosenfeldt Rick Rosenstein Jayne Rovai Carrie Rudzinski Timothy Rueth Renee Rubies Sharri Rutledge Julie Ryan Nancy Rzonca Cort Sabine John Sakelaris Tammy Sajdyk Tina Sakich Tim Samels Lori Sands David Schaeffer Rich Schuelman Carl Schmidt Lisa Schweitzer John Serletic Marcie Sherman Jim Sharp Denise Schmagranoff Lauren Shoemaker Barry Shriner Freshmen 167 Nelson-Shrinver Exotic unusual pets abound " For sale, one very tame, gentle eight month old, housebroken, 300 pound tasma- nian devil. If interested, call TE4-7285. " Al- though this may not sound like your everyday type of pet, many unusual pets were disco- vered among the Freshman Class. Looking in the classified section of the newspaper was just one way of finding a strange or unusual pet. Out of a number of freshmen surveyed, some of the strange pets that were discovered ranged from an exotic cocatoo and a hermit crab, to a humpback fish, and included such unique pets as a boa constrictor. But, are these animal dangerous? Where do people get them, and how in the world do they take care of them? Freshman Gina Pupillo, owner of the boa constrictor, explained, " we got our snake from a woman we know who is a landlord. One of her tennants who had strange pets left it underneath their refrigerator when they de- cided to move out. " A bowl of food and water may sound like ordinary foods to feed a normal household pet, but feeding bird seed to a hermit crab just does not seem to make any sense at all. For freshman Ron Pasko this technique was very common and occurred almost every day for the period of a year. Besides feeding the hermit crab, he also took care of it by changing the water in his small fish bowl once a week. Ron com- mented, " I really enjoyed having such an un- usual pet. Many people don ' t like the thought of having a crab but it wasn ' t that difficult to take care of. It was fun knowing that I didn ' t own a common pet; but instead, owned one that nobody else had. Although not everyone owns or wants an exotic pet, those who do own one can be found either among the " classified ads " or among the Freshman Class.

Senior Hunter Johnson leads his team in a rally of cheers to show their rivals that Munster Seahorses are =1! 170 Athletics Athletics Giving it all you got Shouts of " we ' re number one " and " we ' re proud of our team " echo through the air at any sports event. For it ' s not always winning, but losing too, that makes the pride in our teams so strong. Any athlete who participates on a team knows the joy of leading the Lake Suburban Conference standings or chalking up victories. But not all athletes can experience the winning feeling all the time. Even after a crushing defeat by an arch-rival, a feeling of pride exists in a different form when many hours of hard work and practice have been put into preparing for the event. This feeling is made up of persistence by the athlete and the courage to push an already tired body even further. It consists of making sacrifices and demands perseverance. But, most of all, it is that feeling present at all levels of competition which makes one look back after a victory or a defeat and be proud that they had done the best that they could. In order to make the winning point, sophomore Jackie Case puts forth all her power in her overhead serve. After a slow first half. Coach John Friend heads for the locker room to give his team a pep talk. Athletics 171 Relieved after Sectional play, winner Reed Oslan, junior, heads home with the trophy.

South Bend Riley Compiling a 17-2 overall dual meet record, challenge proved the key as the Netters also captured sectional and regional titles, advancing them to Semi- State competition. In first round Semi-State action, the Netters squeezed by Lafayette Jeff with a score of 3-2, thus advancing them to second round play. Depending upon the doubles team of sophomores Mark Ignas and Dave Potkul to break the tied 2-2 score, a victory was wrapped up as Ignas and Potkul split sets and won a tie- breaker in the third set. " The final match of Semi-State against South Bend Riley was the biggest challenge the team had to face, " explained Coach Ed Musselman, algebra teacher. An unexpected victory by first singles player John Mansueto, senior, over top state-ranked Dave Filer, by a score of 7- 5, 6-4, along with the victory of the second doubles team of Ignas and Potkul, proved to be a reenactment of first round play. Once again faced with a 2-2 tied score, the Netters fell to South Bend Riley by a score of 2-3, thus stopping them short of state competition. Although a seemingly impossible reach, senior Cary Silverman smashes the ball into his teammates ' court during practice. After reaching out to hit a volley, senior Dave Goodman watches to see where the ball goes. While lining up the ball with the racket, sophomore Dave Nagy keeps his eye on the ball.

Along with co-captains junior Reed Oslan and senior Steve Block, seniors Dave Goodman, Gary Silverman, and John Mansueto, and sophomores Ignas and Potkul competed on the varsity level. The highlight of regular season play came during the opening match of the year against South Bend Riley. " Playing Riley was definitely one of the best things that happened this season, " commented co-captain, Steve Block, " because even though the score, 4-1 , doesn ' t show it, it was a close, tough meet! " Other season highlights included the constant improvement of several team members. Coach Musselman felt that Mansueto, Broderson, Ignas, and Potkul showed the greatest improvement. Earning end of season recognition was senior John Mansueto receiving the " Most Valuable Player " award. As the season came to a close, the word " challenge " met its full test as Coach Musselman concluded, " With only three returning letterman and Junior Varsity members from last year, they developed into one of the finest teams.

Although this may sound like a line from the T.V. program " To Tell the Truth, " the question became the key to the Cross Country season. After the resignation of the previous Cross Country coach, the school board named a new coach to take over the team. Following two days as a Mustang coach, he resigned to join another school system. Thus the season began and still there remained no coach. As the boys started to practice on their own, the search continued to find a qualified coach. Mr. Jesse Gomez, a senior at Purdue Calumet and a long distance runner, was offered the job. " He is very qualified for the job, " stated Coach John Friend, Athletic Director. Until the contract was signed, Mr. Dave Knish, special education teacher and Assistant Varsity Baseball coach, had been training the team. Training began in the middle of August with two daily practices. " I was very surprised when I found out that the boys had been practicing before I arrived, " remarked Coach Gomez. The team had a very good attitude even though the boys went through three coaches in two weeks. " Although victories were few with an overall season record of 1-9, the team morale took a sharp turn upward under the hard guidance of our coach, " commented junior and co-captin, Keith Gieselman. Geiselman, along with co-captains seniors Tom Sidor and Jim Fissinger, and the other eleven team members, concluded the season with a sixth place win at Conference and a twelfth place standing at Sectionals. Awards presented were the Pride, Hustle, and Desire award to Geiselman, the Most Improved Runner award to Paulson, and the Most Outstanding Runner award was presented to Geiselman. " Although the team had a major disadvantage because of their slow start, the rest of the season went well, " explained junior Bill Paulson.

Waking up on a cold, misty Saturday morning to run against the coolness of an autumn wind would make anyone want to jump into their warm bed and get some more sleep. However, this didn ' t seem to get in the way of the 15 girls who participated on the Cross-Country team and compiled a season record of 13-2. " This is the first year in the three years that a Girls Cross-Country team has existed that we ever won a meet!, " exclaimed Coach Robert Maicher, mathematics teacher. " It was so surprising that we did so well, considering that most of the girls had never run competitively before. Returning from last year ' s competition, junior Kathy Czapczyk, and sophomores Maureen Obuch, Mary Sartain, and Mary Wilson turned in four of the top six average times for the season, joining them as the top runners were junior Ellen Sullivan and freshman Caroline Paulson. Czapczyk and Sartain received the Most Valuable Player awards at the end of the season. The girls most challenging meet, according to Coach Maicher, came during the middle of the season when they ran a triangular meet against Thornridge and Rich South. Both Munster and Thornridge entered the contest with unblemished records. After a close race, Munster came out ahead by a mere three points. Sartian explained, " most of the other teams had one or two really good runners while we had a team of good runners who all stuck together. " Most of the team ' s meets were run against Illinois schools. This, according to Coach Maicher, was due to the fact that only three other northern Indiana schools have a Girls Cross-Country team and, as Maicher explained, " the competition in Illinois is way above that in Indiana because they have had Girls Cross-Country teams longer. " As Oct. 14 rolled around and the girls warmed up f or their last meet, many members were sorry to see the season end. " Being part of the cross-country team was an honor because everyone was devoted and we had a lot of fun. " We were indeed a close-knit team, " concluded Sullivan.

However, a different route was taken by the Girls ' Golf team as they built upon youth and inexperience in compiling a 6-6 overall season record. The one returning player, senior captain Annie Luerssen, handled a varsity team built around two sophomores and four freshmen. Annie, the only letterwoman, captured the honor of Outstanding Player. But getting used to golfing as a team wasn ' t confined to only the young players. In addition to six new golfers, Mr. Tom Whiteley, U.S. History teacher, took over as the Girls ' Golf Coach and built a competitive team with his knowledge and previous golfing experience. After hours of practice at the Sherwood Club, August heat and rainy September weather, the girls placed fifth at the Valparaiso Sectionals with an overall score of 435. Leading the team were Luerssen at 105, sophomore jeanine Gozdecki at 109, Janet Watson at 110, and freshman, Kelly Chapin at 111 . “All five varsity players improved their average by two or three strokes by the end of the season which really helped our team do well, " said Coach Whiteley. The team opened their season on a grim note as they lost their first four meets. " These meets were the hardest to play for us newcomers because all of us had to get used to competitive play, " stated Janet Watson. Coach Whiteley added, " Our young team didn ' t get discouraged after our first four losses. They seemed to work harder to improve at each meet. " Highlighting the season, the girls beat Chesterton 182-198. Annie earned Medalist with a low of 42.

Their opponent Mishawaka Marian had just driven the ball to the eight yard line and was attempting to kick a winning field goal. As the crowd hushed the kick went up and junior halfback Bill Gomez dashed in front to block the kick. Because of the play, a 9-7 victory was recorded for the Mustangs. " Bill was the hero in that game, " commented Head Coach John Friend, Athletics Director. " This was the best and most important game of the season. " The season started with pre-practice in preparation for the Football-O-Rama and was followed by a five game winning streak until the ' Stangs were defeated 16-17 by Griffith in the last couple seconds of the game. " We were a victim of our own mistakes against Griffith, " stated Coach Friend. The only other Mustang defeats occurred against arch rival Highland with a score of 0-22 and against Calumet 7-12. " Winning over Mishawaka was a thrill after recording two straight losses, " explained senior Chip Eggers. By defeating them we knocked them out of the playoffs.

Going the last stretch ...alone A team is made up of individuals who strive together to make a name for their school. It is the team that receives the recognition and glorification for its success. But, one must stop and take time to realize the ingredients of these victorious teams: the individual atheletes are these elements. Although winning is a team effort, there may be a time when there is an extreme amount of pressure put on one individual to pull the team through tight situations. This may cause a feeling of much anguish, loneliness, and pressure. Whether there be one or one hundred teammates on the field, track, pool, or court, all eyes, at one specific minute, are focused on the key element to victory, the lone athelete. The pressure on this one person is immense. How does the athelete cope with this agonizing feeling of loneliness? Does he favor this individuality? The thought of knowing what is expected of the athelete himself may be frightening. " I didn ' t like having all of the pressure of proving myself, " claimed senior Swim State competitor, Dave Pender. This feeling of dependence is well known but not well liked. The pressure applied to the athlete seems to create the boost that is needed to help him fulfill his duty.

" As his first year as head coach, he also explained, " the most satisfying part of the season for me as head coach was being associated with such a hard working group of young men and seeing the fruits of their labors pay off in the post season tournaments. This was a truly exceptional group of men. " Trying for a takedown, senior Scott Gillespie uses the front headlock series to overcome his Lake Central opponent.

The young girls and lack of experience were other factors that hindered the team ' s performance. " Our distance runners were the strongest part of the team. The sprinters and field event people needed more experience to be as strong, " stated junior Ellen Sullivan. Despite these handicaps, the team ended up with a 4-2 season record. " Crown Point and Highland were our toughest competition because Highland had a good all around team, where as Crown Point was tough in distance events, " explained Ellen.

" The Junior Varsity team also faced difficulties this year. " This had been one of the roughest seasons that I can remember ever having, " commented Junior Varsity Coach Don Kernaghan. The Junior Varsity team had been hampered all year by the lack of practice time. Coach Kernaghan explained that the team only practiced outdoors a few times during the season and it was not what you would call an ideal situation. " Ending its season with a 7-4 overall record.

Baseball 239 You don’t have to be a Jock In the beginning, it was just ABC. But, even then sports were a part of growing up. From playing four square to racing a dog, skills were building for later activities. High school brought a lot of opportunities, intramurals was just one of them. As the weather became colder, volleyball sign-ups were underway. Mr. Steve Wroblewski, math teacher, feels the purpose of intramurals is " to give students who normally don ' t participate in organized athletic activities a chance to participate. " Maybe the girls were thinking ' flab ' and the guys were thinking ' muscle ' or vice versa or they were all just thinking ' fun. ' But, either way 12 teams were formed. Intramurals was open to anyone for one dollar dues. ' t| like to play volleyball for fun not for competitiveness, " exclaimed junior Pam DeRolf. 200 people took part in intramurals which met two nights a week for games. A few didn ' t partake this way but did become involved as a referee. After approximately 10 weeks of regular play, an intramural tournament was held. After the close of volleyball, basketball sign ups started. For a new twist, there were separate teams for the girls and boys. Basketball games were held as often as possible with the tournament at the end like volleyball. For those who wanted a sport to last ' year round ' some turned to jogging, which became the latest fad. After making a mistake, senior Paul Maginot still seems to enjoy intramurals even through his embarrassment. To help gain the winning point for his team, senior Robert Sipes sets up the ball to fellow teammate senior Kelly Samuels. Although dusk is coming, many individuals were still seen enjoying themselves through a friendly basketball game. 240 Intramurals Deriving total pleasure from participating in outside sports, senior Pam Seefurth shows her enjoyment after her team captures a victory. Despite the cold weather, senior Kevin Moynagh still jogs through the neighborhood to keep in shape for the upcoming soccer season. Enjoying the easy going atmostphere provided by intramurals, junior Ken Orlich follows through ' as the ball clears the net. Intramurals 241 You don’t have to be a Jock Unlike most sports, jogging has the advantage of being a low cost sport with no restrictions. Students did not run into a time limit, which there are in health clubs. Senior Lisa Prus commented, " I jog to keep in shape. Since I started jogging, feel better and don ' t get as tired. " " Jogging is good for the heart and muscle systems. After jogging you can do a lot more things with a lot less effort, " explained coach Mike Niksic, physical education teacher. With the opening of Olympic Racquetball Club, students turned to racquetball for enjoyment and physical fitness. Many people enjoy racquetball because, like jogging, they can play by themselves, but also, they can play with another person for additional enjoyment. Junior Diane McMorris stated, " after just starting racquetball, I like it a lot. It ' s a good sport to get into because it ' s constant. " While senior Gary Brazel likes racquetball because " racquetball is a sport that you can get good exercise from and have fun at the same time. " After walking in the house and falling into bed, most students realize that their early training just wasn ' t enough. After an attempted effort to return the ball, senior Susie Lanman realizes she misjudged the distance to the ball. In order to score a point for his team, sophomore Mark Luberda uses all of his effort to spike the ball downward at his opponent ' s feet. With teammate Kelly Samels and others gathered around him. Senior Steve Andrews sets up the ball. 242 Intramurals Disap pointment is shown on sophomore Nancy Maginot ' s face as she makes a fall during intramurals after losing a point for her team.

Will these fads die as swiftly as they move? A few years ago people might have been asking what a moped was. They seemed to arrive with a big boom and were wholeheartedly accepted by the public. " Because the restricted age is 15 to ride one, they are very popular with those who don ' t drive cars. It is an easy way to get around and they only take a little gas, " stated junior Allison Hirsch. Mopeds seem to have a practical purpose. " I think they ' ll be used for years to come, " added Allison. Skateboards are also very useful transportation devices, but they seem to be used more for entertainment and sporting purposes. Junior Tim Burbich explained, " I basically skateboard for enjoyment and to pass time when I ' m bored. " Skateboarding is very popular during the warmer months because it is mainly an outdoor sport. Some are intensely engrossed in this activity and even set up ramps to perform peculiar stunts. " It will come and go like any other fad, " remarked Tim. Although they have just lately become extremely popular, frisbees seem to have always been around. Competition is plentiful. Some even go as far as to teach their dogs to catch a frisbee. One could never go to the beach and not see a frisbee gliding through the air. Junior Jeff Lasky stated, " I like to play on a hot summer day. It ' s fun and something to do. I think it will be around for a long time. " Will these fads last?

Closing Familiar horseshoe to disappear With grace and elegance, freshman Mara Candelaria executes a difficult balance beam routine. Stranded in the middle of the track, his opponents far ahead, Mr. George Pollingue takes a break in the Homecoming trike race. Most of the year ' s events were positive, but some were remembered more clearly than others. The Boys Swimming Team recaptured their seventh State title, and the wrestlers set a school record by sending more boys to State competition than ever before. First year Head Coach Jack Yerkes led the Boys Varsity Basketball Team to a 17-3 season record, and they once again captured the Conference title. Sports didn ' t have the only highlights of the year as groups and individuals set winning standards. Seniors Debbie Yalowitz, Kurt Kappes and Steve Block, and ju nior Janice Levy advanced to National competition in Speech and Debate. Four seniors were named National Merit Finalists which made them eligible for a national scholarship.

After accumulating approximately 89 inches of snow and breaking the snow fall record, the school was forced to close down for a few days. People were unable to go to and from their houses until a snow removal plan was established. Gas prices soared higher than ever and a possible plan to close gas stations on weekends and ration the amount of gas to a customer was brought forward. Even though freshmen always want to be seniors, seniors would do anything to become freshmen again so that they could relive these memories and be freed of all their pressures. But, whether freshmen or seniors, they will go on. Another year will bring different highlights and records. They will have new events to be proud of because Pride says it all. Closing 303 Pride in many faces Expressing feelings of pride: sophomore Michelle Linos, Mr. Jerry Schroeder, seniors Denise Punak, Joe Fowler, Melissa Murin, and Chuck O ' Connor. r A class all by ae rest of the Calumet
