" Being at home, having friends, laugh- ing, crying, giving, sharing. New Haven, our home, now suddenly growing, expanding. Our memories of a school will soon be forgotten as we move to a bigger, more modern school. Will we feel as at home there? Only time can tell. " That Down Home Feeling . . . " Cracks covered the greenish walls. But you couldn ' t see the gaps from the spirit posters plastered all around. The Bulldogs didn ' t always field a winning team, but you couldn ' t ever tell it from the ruckus we were raising. There might have been a stuffed shirt somewhere in that crowd, but the grinning faces, patched jeans, tennis sho es, and bibbed overalls gave this place " That Down Home Feeling . . .

In 1911, New Haven High School was established with an enrollment of 50 students. Mr. B. H. Smith was prin- cipal, and in 1913, four people received diplomas as the first gradu- ating class. Today around 200 will graduate in May 1976. " Always accomplish a little more and be somewhat superior to the pre- ceeding class, but by all means be original. " This was the advice given by the class of ' 23, to the remaining classes in NHHS. On November 30, 1923, the bas- ketball team started the season by defeating Woodburn 51-13. The sea- son went by with 10 games played; New Haven won seven. In 1 920, the Girls Athletic Associa- tion was originated with basketball the only sport. One evening a week was devoted to practice; the season ended with five wins. From 191 1 to 1976 there has been approximately 7900 graduated from New Haven High. If all goes on schedule, the class of 1977 will be graduating from the new New Haven High School. " That Down Home Feeling . . , " It was some year. It saw New Haven record a 6-4 season in football.

Thai Down Home Feeling — 5 It ' s 3:1 7 on a Friday afternoon and those students who have stayed a- round for the activity period are busily contemplating the course of activities planned for the upcoming weekend, while some seniors who failed to neg- otiate the twenty-five minute naptime are already indulging in the frolics of weekend nieana. As the clock on the wall clicks to 3: 1 8, a passer by would tend to wonder what a normal student would do on a normal run of the mill weekend. The answer to that ques- tion is really quite elementary, noth- ing. A thriving midwestern community such as New Haven, has basically, nothing to offer the adolescent citizen that isn ' t illegal, immoral or costs you an arm and a leg. So whatever the student has planned for a weekend is really a product of long studious men- tal labor, which indirectly finally reveals some relevance to Friday activity period, it gives students time to plan for the Friday — Saturday — Sunday, mini-vacation.

The Bicentennial Year took on many aspects of celebration. The Shell Oil Company ' s Bicentennial Minute was one of the educational ways America expressed its Bicen- tennial history. For the Bicentennial Minute celebraties revealed little known events in America ' s heritage. Commercialism became a major issue during the Bicentennial Year. Corporations turned America ' s birth- day into a profit making gimmick by putting the Bicentennial label on all their products. Such products like Bicentennial tuxedos and Bicenten- nial cars ran red, white, and blue into the ground. Commercialism on the Bicentennial reached the beer industry as Falstaff displays their commemorative can. Bicentennial fever hit John Police as he poses next to his Spirit of 76 garage door. Bicentennial — 9 The Varsity Cheerleaders provided many skits during the pep sessions. Junior Judy Flora acts as a chef mixing a recipe for a Bulldog victory. The roar of students ' voices during the frequent pep sessions held throughout the school year built spirit throughout N.H.H.S. as a whole. Pep sessions were often the only time all school mennbers gathered together to lake part in an activity supporting the mennbers of the sports team both individually and as a whole. Sometimes it was rather hard to get students really involved in the pep sessions as tar as cheering was con- cerned. Varsity and Junior Varsity cheerleaders ultimately persuaded the shy students into participating in the many different cheers, however. New cheers and chants added to the variety of the gatherings. " Stand up for the Bulldogs " and " We Will Win " were among the most popular. Classes acted as one in unity dur- ing the competition cheers. Competi- tion cheers proved not only which class had the most spirit, but also which class would ultimately have the greatest number of sore throats. Vic the Bulldog often awarded the spirit stick as a reward to the class judged having the most spirit. Because of the construction taking place on the site of the new school, the usual Homecoming bonfire wasn ' t held during Homecoming week. A special touch was added. Basketball Coach John Hans receives a standing ovation from the Varsity and Junior Varsity basketball teams as he takes the microphone to give a pep talk. however, when Bulldog backers gathered in the Boys ' gym for one of the school year ' s most memorable pep sessions. Skits also added to the variety of the student gatherings. Various organizations, clubs, and faculty members prepared skits to present at pep sessions during the year. Faculty members and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes planned a special skit to urge the basketball team on to a second victory during Sectional Week, which included Mr. Norman Stephen as " The Fonz, " Mrs. Bar- bara Alhersmeyer as " Bionic Alhers- meyer, " and Mr. Dennis Johnson as " Horshack Johnson. " A noticeable improvement of this year ' s pep sessions over last year ' s pep sessions was the involvement of the teachers. Several clever and well- planned skits were presented to the school body by faculty members cooperating with other school organi- zations. Because of the change of format concerning activity period during the week, the last part of Fridays was reserved for pep sessions since activ- ity period was held at the end of the day. It proved to be a good way to end the school day and week. 10 — Pep sessions " Fonzarelli " Stephan, " Bionic " Alhersmeyer, and " Horshack " Johnson do their part to build spirit during a pep session by urging the basketball team on to a second sectional win against Wayne.

BULLE QGB Do TH£iR HAMBURGER Gl No matter how long the working day may seem, Senior Jane Bayse still manages to cheertully serve a hamburger dinner. To obtain money via a paycheck, students began job hunting and found as many different types of jobs as there were individual talents. Training for future occupations resulted as students chose part-time jobs similar to their intended fields of endeavor. A few secured full time jobs during the summer and after high school as a result of their part- time experience. For many students, after school hours and weekends meant earning a few more dollars. Pumping gasoline, running a cash register, and stocking grocery shelves were all familiar sights around New Haven. Others earned money as baby sit- ters, or by assuming other responsi- bilities not usually considered " jobs. " When asked why they worked, stu- dents often replied, " To break the monotony of school, " and " To earn money for college expenses. " Others thought that working gave them good experience in dealing with people.

A total of 39.1 inches of snow and freezing rain blanketed the ground during the early winter months. Numerous national issues such as busing, the Hearst trial, airport bomb- ings, the Olympics, postal rates, med- ical malpractice, and the presidential race came into perspective. The capture and trial ot self- declared radical Patty Hearst was one of the nation ' s top stories. Doctors all over the United States, particularly in California, protested the alarming insurance premiums they had to pay for malpractice insur- ance. In hopes for a remedy, some abandoned the insurance altogether. Postal rates went up in December from 10 cents to 13 cents for a first class letter. Dorothy Hamill, Sheila Young, Peter Mueller, and Cindy Nelson will stand out in the minds of Olympic fans as they brought top honors to the United States during the 1 976 Winter Olympic Games held in Inns- bruck, Austria. The United States placed third overall in medal stand- ings. Candidates emerged to affirm their candidacy for the presidency. Issues the candidates were frequently ques- tioned on were busing, abortion, the economic slump, and unemployment. Several changes emerged within the community. In the city of Fort Wayne, a change of administration took place with the victory of Robert Armstrong over incumbent Mayor Ivan Lebamoff. New Haven re-elected Herb Brudi as its city manager. The completion of the new New Haven High School was another local project. Workers strove to complete the roof of the complex before poor weather set in so that the interior work could be started. Since snowstorms and freezing rain can bring things to an abrupt halt, most Bulldogs welcomed five extra vacation days, resulting from the harsh winter weather. Around Christmastime, several new gifts flooded into the buyer ' s market, including mood rings, mood necklaces and Pet Rocks.

From the onset of the building of Paul Harding High School a rivalry has seemed inevitable. Boosted by high spirits the Bulldogs won in football, basketball, and Girls ' Volleyball. The football team regained the Becker Barrell after its 20-15 win, while the basketball team opened its season with a 79-77 victory. Girls ' Volleyball team beat the Hawks 15-7,15-4 in the third game of the season. The spirit posters and sayings such as " Flip the Birds " and " Hammer the Hawks " demonstrate the rivalry which began two years ago.

New Haven High School was con- structed in 1923 and additions were made in 1 934, 1 947, 1 954, and 1 964. The facilities were found to be inad- equate for high school purposes. The school board made its decision to construct a new New Haven High School building on a 54 acre tract -of land owned by the school corpora- tion on Green Road. The new building when completed will contain six laboratories and a greenhouse for the science depart- ment. The music department will include practice rooms, instrumental room, vocal music room and large group instrumental rooms. An instructional materials center with a TV studio, audio visual prep room, darkroom and journalism room will be included. Each department will have a teach- er ' s office. The building will also include a gymnasium to seat 2,800 persons, boys ' and girls ' locker and shower rooms, two decks, an indoor track, wrestling room, dance room, weight and exercise room. A helicopter was rented to install the heating system on the roof of the building. The helicopter was used for 50 minutes and cost $10,000. The new building was started in March of 1 975 it will be completed and ready for use in September of 1977. The cost of the new New Haven High School will be $7,904,606. Construction begins with sight grading of the buildings, athletic fields, and parking lots. 18— New school This is an interior shot of the new librgry located within the central core of the facility.

After much confusion and many phone calls to the Eastern Comets from Kokomo, the date of the game was finally changed to Friday, Octo- ber 17, with the parade the night before. Excitement mounted on Monday, October 13 as the long awaited Homecoming week rolled around. Students and teachers filled the halls with pant legs rolled high and wild combinations of socks sticking out from underneath. Monday was proclaimed " Sock-it-to- ' em " day and " Sneak-up-on- ' em " day. Senior Margie Louden, reaped the honors as " Sock-it-to- ' em " champ. Tuesday was deemed " Miss Irresisti- ble " day. Each guy was issued a paper bulldog, and if he spoke to a girl he had to forfeit his bulldog, " Miss Irresistible " , Senior Jill Losher, tallied 27 paper bulldogs. Thursday of Spirit Week was " inside out " day and both students and fac- ulty turned the Eastern Comets " inside out " by wearing their outer clothing the same way. Some of the Senior football players took the " inside out " literally and wore boxer shorts over their clothes. Friday, each class was to decorate their section of the gym for the after- noon pep session. It was also pro- claimed as " Hats off to the Bulldogs day " with students and faculty mem- bers wearing the craziest hat they could find. Seniors won the best theme, best float, best development of the theme and best decorations section in the gym. Juniors took third for their float, and Sophomores took second along with the award for the " Most Spirited Class " . Although the weather did not cooper- ate with the high expectations of the Homecoming fans, it didn ' t seem to hinder the players ability as they " Scoured the Comets " 40 to 6. Torrent rains and cold weather dampened the fans spirits, but nothing could spoil the game for Queen Shelly Lash, Despite the weather the Bulldogs came through with a 40 to 6 vic- tory. Homecoming — 21 Friday the 13th lucky for hearts When the idea for a winter dance was brought up at a Student Con- gress meeting, mennbers were very skeptical since the winter dance for the two years previous had been can- celed due to lack of interest. Thinking of ways to bring added interest to the dance was Junior Sue Holt. Between her and the dance committee, it was decided to have a semi-formal turnabout dance the night before Valentine ' s Day. Another idea was to have clubs nominate members to be the King and Queen of Hearts. Senior Lisa Gering and Scott Coff- man were first runnerup for the hon- ors. King and Queen of Hearts were Junior Gayle Rath and Senior Mike Velez. Voting for the King and Queen was done by setting coffee cans with the nominees ' pictures on them in the back of the cafeteria. Students voted for their choice by putting pennies in the cans. All the money ($20) was donated to the heart fund. On the night of the dance, approxi- mately 79 couples danced to the music by the group " Destiny. " Not a fantastic amount of couples, but con- sidering only five tickets had been sold on the Monday before the dance, the turnout was good. Student Congress lost about $20 on the dance, but were pleased about the turnout and said they had already had requests to sponsor the dance again next year. Hopefully, the old tradition of a winter dance was revived for future classes at New Haven. Couples attending the " Sweetheart Dance, " listen attentively to Pete Li and Sue Holt, awaiting the outcome of the King and Queen of Hearts.

" , the musical put on by the students of New Haven High School, was shown successfully for the nights of November 14 and 15. The crew ran into difficulty on Satur- day night. The Bicentennial musical was set in Oklahoma before it became a state, and the plot revolved around the cowboys versus the farmers, and how they were brought together. The show featured love affairs, violence, comedy and even murder. Scott Coffman portrayed Curly, the bronc-busting cowboy who falls in love with Shelly Lash, who played Laurie Williams. Sue Holt played Ado Annie, a flirty country girl who must decide whether to marry Will Parker (Kent Snyder) or Ali Hakim (Mark Van Tilburg). Karl Hans played Jud Fry, a farmhand who tries to take away Curly ' s girl, and Kathie Dupont pro- trayed Aunt Eller, the wise old lady who seemed to have everyone ' s respect. Musical background was provided by members of the band. Staging was done mostly by Mr. Gerald Isch. The last musical put on by the high school was " How to Succeed in Busi- ness " , in 1971. Senior Shelly Lash (Laurie) sings to her future " Beau " Senior Scott Coffman (Curly). " Aunt Eller " , ' Kathie Dupont and " Laurie " , Shelly Lash, ponder over the box social.

Stu- dents fronn all four classes decorated their sections of the halls. Pep Club and Sportsmanship Council members showed their enthusiasm by decorat- ing the gym and cafeteria. Awarded with first prize for the best decorated hall was the Senior Class. Junior and Sophomore classes were awarded with the spirit stick for show- ing the most Bulldog hysteria at the pep session. The varsity cheerleaders were pre- sented corsages and roses from the J.V. and Freshmen cheerleaders. Coach Hans and the team were then presented with a purple and gold cake in the shape of a horseshoe to show the roundballers that the fans were behind them all the way. Faculty members performed their traditional sectional skit which was titled " Knights-vs-Bulldog Super Stars. " After the cheers and speeches were finished, the Seniors were called to the floor to form a path so the players could pass through to yells of " We Will Win! " Students assembled in the parking lot that evening with decorated cars and high spirits before making their way to the Coliseum. In the first sectional game against Luers the Bulldogs displayed almost disastrous basketball skills for 31 min- utes and 59 seconds of the aame. But during the final second, with the score 45 to 45 John Moyer reacted as one should under pres- sure and calmly sank both ends of a one and one as the final buzzer rang and the Bulldog fans went wild! However, in the semi-final game against Wayne, New Haven fans left the Coliseum in a much different manner with unhappy and disgusted faces after being defeated in overtime 72 to 66. « W) r- Z Q Q 1 — U ' Q z I 1 u Q V9 " I considered it a cliallenging and thought-provoking drama, " com- mented Masque and Gavel sponsor Fransis May about M G ' s two act entitled " The Ettect ot Gamma Rays on Man in the Moon Marigolds. " The story of the play revolved around a divorced widowed, mother, Beatrice, played by Junior Sue Holt. Beatrice has two daughters and she is soured and embittered by the adversities of an impoverished exist- ence. The two daughters, Ruth and Tillie were played by Junior Amy Coffman and Freshman Dawn Lopshire. Other members of the cast were Freshman Laura Coffman as Nancy and Senior Margie Louden playing Janice Vick- ery. Mr. May said " From the point of view of comparison with other M G plays, — Saturday night ' s perform- ance ranked with the best. (Even the few technical flubs Saturday night were of minor significance.) " He went on to say club membership was the cause for many restrictions in selec- tion of plays, but when it came to quality, " What the Civic Theater can do, we can do!

Happening 76, the annual talent show was again presented by Fine Arts Club on March 22, to a near capacity crowd. From blues to rock to show tunes. Happening 76 displayed 27 acts along with some fillers between acts. Despite a slight delay, due to tech- nical problems, the show was deter- mined a success from the audience ' s point of view. The show opened with Shelly Lash and Sue Holt singing " On with the show this is it, " dressed up as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Between acts various skits were performed. At one point Barb Kiebel came running out on stage scream- ing with Mark Lee behind her in a gorilla suit. Suddenly she stopped and shouted " Don ' t worry he ' s only my brother!!

Some solos included " Mairzy Doats, ' sung by Becky Becker; " Let it Be, " sung by Scott Coffman; " Oh Johnny, " sung by Susie Winans; and " Breakin ' up is Hard to Do, " sung by Julie Greenwood.

Upon further investigation one could see that a house was not on tire, the city had not been bombed, but a caravan of estatic band stu- dents had captured the NISBOVA Marching Band Contest Sweep- stakes. The band competed against 16 bands in the Class B competition at Lewis Cass High School in Walton, Indiana. Mr. Paul Milliman, director, defined sweepstakes as " having the best overall score in the entire con- test. " " We have not taken sweepstakes for about 18 years. " Mr. Milliman said. " We came within a few points of it several years though and won the inspection trophy a number of times, " he added. The band scored 96 points out of a possible 100 in the inspection area. They were only one-half point within winning the inspection trophy. Mr. Milliman briefly explained the judging and rating system of the con- test. " Three judges are involved. One inspects the band before going out onto the field. Each band is allowed about 1 2 minutes on the field in which the other two judges comment both verbally, by means of a tape recorder, and written and recorded. " The band received a superior rat- ing from all judges. A superior rating is between 1 5 and 21 points. One judge in his comments described the band as " beautiful, well-prepared, very superior group. " Another said they had an excellent appearance. Spirits were quickly dampened for on the day of the state contest, it rained the whole day. The band was forced to perform on the school ' s parking lot because of the wetness of the football field. Kent Snyder summed it up by say- ing, " We could have won, but the rain put enthusiasm down among us. It was a big disappointment. " Performing with tine band to the song " Gold " are Senior Aimee Johnson, and Sophomore Jennifer DeVoe.

A sigh of relief was heard through- out the Coliseum after Gina Lothamer remembered her speech after a slight pause. Laughter could be heard when Darwin Werling said in his speech, " As you can probably tell this is my first speech — and it will probably be my last.

In Sectional action the Harriers fac- ing all the area schools finished on somewhat of a sad note as they placed 16th out of 22 teams running in this year ' s meet held at the Lincoln Life Insurance Building. It was the worst day for running that many of the runners have ever experienced. Icy winds tightened up muscles quicker than normal, soggy grounds made the footing unsure, all which affected each runner ' s time, and in the end, cost the Bulldogs a respectable finishing. Scott Coffman led the Bulldog charge as he placed 49th.

Scott Cotfman heads into the chute atter com- pleting his conference run. Crosscountry — 45 Cross-country runners are a spe- cial breed of people. They are known as harriers. Many of them, although lacking in size, are just as good of athletes as the much more heralded football and basketball players. Distance running, however, demands just as much guts and determination as football because a cross-country runner has no team to help up his own personal loss. He is all alone in competition and a per- sonal quest for glory. What is a cross-country runner? Three types of athletes go out for cross-country. There is the guy who only wants to stay in shape. Also there is the athlete from another sport who hopes to enhance his chances in that sport by being in good shape from cross-country. Finally there is the true cross-country runner who only seeks glory and a different type of competition. Although the name implies running from coast to coast across the coun- try a cross-country runner simply runs an exhausting 214 miles. His practice consists of more than long distance running. Sprinting and hill running are almost as much a part of his practice as distance running. Most harriers put in 5-1 miles of run- ning a day. Cross-country meets are sparsely attended and runners are rarely her- Troy Zimmerman and Jeff BIlik gather after the end of a meet to await the results.

Reasons for low attendance are easy to find. A 214 mile course on which the harriers run is kind of diffi- cult to watch from the stands. Also the meets are rather dull for many people because of the lack of a defi- nite object and physical contact. However, those who have been spiked or have received a thoughtful elbow will tell you otherwise. Cross-country may be ignored or forgotten by many, but it will always exist for those who have the guts and determination to compete as well as excel in it. c iTA8«iiaMA Cross country team: First row: Don Gentile, John Ridgeway, Scott Coffman, Steve Hevel, Chris Laurent, Jeff Bilik, Mil e Vidra.

The Bullpup defense fell apart as he Eagles rallied and scored three jnanswered touchdowns, making the inal score 18-7. The freshman football team coached by Pat Monaghan and Assistant Coach Hank Neitert had what one could call a dismal season by just finishing below the five hun- dred mark with three wins and five losses. One of the losses came to arch rival Woodlan Warriors. The Bulldogs stayed right in the thick of things with a one touchdown deficit at the half. But, the Bulldogs proved too small for the Warriors as they went into a 25-6 win.

Senior Mark Osborn, third leading scorer and a selectee to the Northeastern Indiana Athletic Conference second team envisions Coach Han ' s game plans during a time out. 56— Basketball in the corner of the state, out in the boondocks as the fellas from the big city would put it. Not too many people had the faith in this team that Coach Hans had entrusted in them. He laid all his cards on the table during his first year, the gamble paid off, he turned up five aces. Coach Hans ' five aces were those fellas he put on the hardwood every Friday and Saturday night. The faces didn ' t always look the same, Hans used his bench well, and often, but no matter who was out there, from the perennial starter to the number one splinter collector, they were all vital clogs in the " Purple Hemmy, " and they all made things click. Hans seemed to know all the right combi- nations to mix, for when New Haven made a substitution the man coming in was just as adept to get the job done as the man going out. The big difference from this years ' 14-8 ball club and last year ' s 6-16 team was the fact that New Haven got the job done where it had to be done. They scrapped and fought against heavy favorites Bellmont and knocked them off in overtime. Could it be a conference title? Maybe, but the visions were far too obscure and far too distant to be accepted as sworn testimony. The skeptics held their ground: " Not a chance, you haven ' t Varsity Basketball Team.

" The Bulldog groupies prayed their hearts out: " We gotta win the conference, we just gotta. If we don ' t win I ' ll just die. Oh God. please have them win. " Of course, the players had their hearts set on It, if they failed, three months of practice would have gone down the drain. The East Noble Knights were the next victims to travel down the Bull- dogs path. As does the team when they put their minds to it the Bulldogs chewed the Knights up and spit them out at the nearest exit to Kendallville. What about those conference hopes now? The players remained quiet, they let their play do all the talking. The groupies remained loyal to their cause. The skeptics, a little stun- ned said that there ' s still Columbia City. Yep, there ' s still Columbia City. Those poor skeptics, little did they know that they would have to eat those words letter for letter. To say that the New Haven Bull- dogs beat the Columbia City Eagles, Junior forward Mike Sicl afoose tips the ball back up toward the basket in hopes for two more points, while Senior Mark Osborn awaits his chance to try for two points. Starting center Mark Osborn clears a rebound in the Bulldogs crucial victory over the Bell- mont Braves. Getting in position for the fast break are John Moyer and Mike Sickafoose. 58— Varsity basketball 90-75 would not adequately describe the type of play that fans saw that Fri- day night. To say that they devoured the Eagles would also be unfair. Their play could only be described by the pains one would experience after being beaten up one side and down the other by a Gorilla with a tree trunk. The game was physical to the point of being brutal. The Eagles tried to get away with sonne under the table shoving, but unfortunately it blew up right in their faces. New Haven took it with smiling faces and dished out some shoves of their own. These weren ' t just love taps, these were shoves just short of being called uppercuts. The game ' s outcome was all but academic at the end of the third quar- ter. For the first time in 1 5 long years people got to cut down the new nets because the old ones were worn out from age. The New Haven Bulldogs had themselves a conference cham- pionship. The groupies cried, the players danced in jubilation, and the skeptics, they all got together for a quick bowl of alphabet soup.

Varsity basketball— 59 The 1975-76 Varsity Basketball squad had a successful season, the 1 975-76 Junior Varsity Basketball squad had a poor ' season, their 5-15 record attested to that fact.

More times than not, a team ' s hard- ships is blamed on the coach, and more times than not, it was the coach who paid the price tor it too. This time, the case was different, it was not the coach ' s fault. Ron Hoffer exhausted all his strategical efforts in an attempt to salvage a win. His play- ers simply didn ' t produce when pro- duction was needed most. The Freshman basketball squad coached by Dan Lose suffered nearly the same problems as suffered by the Junior Varsity squad as they ended the year with a 9-20 record. Coach Lose didn ' t have the team unity prob- lems that Coach Hoffer ' s JV squad had, the freshman team ' s main head- ache was not being able to come up with the big play when it was needed most. They had to make their own breaks, for what breaks they did get were mostly against them, thus put ting thefrosh in a rut. Though winning wasn ' t the most important thing on the Freshman squad ' s-mind, it does give a team a moral lift to see New Haven in the lead at the end of the fourth quarter. Coach Lose can rack his brains out teaching fundamentals, but he can ' t teach luck, and a little bit of luck means a whole lot when it come to winning basketball games. ne to i Front row: Scott Hevel, Rick Augustine, John Stevens, Jeff Stumpf, Scott Helm, Rlcl Snyder, Marl Fritcha, Ron Forks.

MVP Junior Karen Klotz was leading scorer with 178 points for the season with Seniors Cathy Buanno and Lisa Gering totaling 123 and 81 points respectively. Junior Jeanne Meyer headed the free throw percentages with 46%. Most mproved player was Freshman Cathy ortenber. The team, in short, was inexperi- enced due to the fact that many of last year ' s starters, including their leading scorer were lost through graduation, so it was a rebuilding year for Coach Heiney ' s squad, a squad made up mostly of three Jun- iors, three Seniors, and two Fresh- men. The inexperience of the girl cagers was basically their number one head- ache. It was through this inexperi- ence that the rest of the Bulldogs ' woes erupted. Though the Bulldogs didn ' t win every game, they were heavily com- plimented by the officials for their good sportsmanship and spirit. That only goes to prove that winning isn ' t everything.

The Bulldogs went on to lose the game. If you passed an East Allen County School bus going down the road most any Friday or Saturday night during the school year, you could probably hear the noise in your car from the various song, chants and cheers being yelled from the numer- ous Bulldog supporters on board. Many a girl was known to have lost her voice among those cheers. " P " is for party . . . , " Seniors in the front let me hear ya grunt ... " It was those fans who had two fan buses to most games and three to the Winchester vs. New Haven game about three hours away. The year before it was pure luck to get one fan bus going to a game. It was those fans who led the bas- ketball team to a co-championship of the NEIC which allowed the nets to be cut down for the first time in 1 6 years in front of many estatic fans. It was those fans who spent hours hanging crepe paper, drawing pos- ters, blowing up balloons, painting windows during sectional week to let the basketball team know they were behind them. The dictionary defines " fan " as a 66 — Bulldog supporters " Flip the Birds! " Bulldog fans again become optimistic during the game against Harding. The Bulldogs won a comeback victory 20-1 5.

" Bulldog supporters — 67 r typ How can one readily describe the type of success this year ' s wrestling squad experienced? Can their suc- cess be categorized in the scope of how good or bad their win-loss record is? If this is so. then the grap- plers, under the direction of coach Stan Hostetler, did not reap in the fruits of success, as their 5-5 record reflected. But if their success can be terminated by individual success, which is the basis for the sport to begin with, then the Bulldogs can sit back and rest on their laurels as they advanced four grapplers to regional competition, with only two being sen- iors. Senior Rick Kinney, wrestling in the 134 pound weight class advanced to the Regionals by taking the Sectional crown at his respective weight class. Kinney who had an over all record of 6-9, finished fourth in the Regionals by losing two very close decisions. Jim Gentile, who sat out half the season with an illness fought back the second half of the year and cap- tured the Sectional crown in the 105 pound class. Gentile advanced to the semi-finals and captured third place in the competition. r The Bulldogs stand poised for the National Anthem at the beginning of a meet.

Sectional runner-up Larry Neher, only a Freshman grabs three points in a move on his opponent. Larry placed third In the Reglonals. Wrestling — 69 Two surprises in Coach Hosteller ' s grab bag of grappiers were two underclassmen, Tonn Cheviron, a sophomore, and Larry Neher, a fresh- man. Cheviron, wrestling in the 147 pound weight class also captured the Sectional Championship. Cheviron, like Kinney in the Regionals, narrowly missed capturing third place by losing two very close matches. Freshman Larry Neher was the only one of the four grappiers advancing to the Regionals who had not won a Sectional crown. Neher was the Sectional runner-up in the 98 pound weight class, but got due revenge by clinching third place when he defeated the man who had beat him in the Sectionals. The number one thorn in Coach Hostetler ' s side this year was the lack of participation. The squad had to wrestle without a heavyweight for the entire year and thus a defeat at the end of a match more times than not cost the Bulldogs a defeat when the going was close, making their 5-5 record deceiving. As for personal records, the grap- piers were lead by team captain Mark Creager, and Mike Velez. Both men were seasoned veterans who posted 14-1 and 11-2 records respectively. Both grappiers met unfortunate ends during the sectionals as they were defeated early. Brian Becker and Ills opponent jostle for an opening so that a move could be made and a point scored. Above.

It took a while though, as is the case with a large number of freshmen, to conquer the butterflies and the stagefright.

Not that the gymnastics team had a bad year, though their 4-6 record seemed to disprove that, many of the more unheralded girls stepped into the limelight and got the job done when bad luck would strike at the wrong times. Two freshmen. Amy Roberts and Marina Hechler took firsts and sec- onds respectively in the intermedi- ate floor excercises at Sectionals and then advanced to Regional competition. They stepped in after Judy Flora and Dawn Gibson, team leaders throughout the better part of the season ran into some bad luck and failed to get out of the Sectionals. None of the gymnasts can be ashamed for the job they did this year. With Debbie Cheatham, the only senior on the squad, leaving through graduation, the squad can look for better things in the coming year. Coach Lake will literally have everybody back, back with a year of experience under their belts. It inexperience caused the downfall of this year ' s hopes of a prosper- ous record, experience will bolster the hopes of pulling off a winner. Gymnastics — 73 Right.

Junior Brad Stephens is right behind their pace. The New Haven track team under head coach Pat Monaghan, had what you might call, " just another season. " Although they finished first only twice, they finished respectively in most meets. The track team has what looks to be a very bright future for the next few years. The under- classmen did well this year and hope- fully will get better as they mature. Some of the outstanding under- classmen were Mike Sickafoose who won regionals in shot-put and went to tate Mike has made on his own per- sonal goals by setting the school record in the shot-put by throwing it 59 ' 9 " . Also coming back with prom- ise is Troy Zimmerman in the mile, Greg Shultz in the pole vault, Mark Hellinger in the 880, Clandis Baker and Greg Osborn in the hurdles. Jeff Brockman and Greg Bischoff are very good hopefuls in the field events. Even though a crew like that and more are going to be back the Cin- dermen are still going to miss people like Tim Bennett, who Coach Mona- ghan says is one of the best shot-put- ters he has ever coached for his height and weight, The team will also miss the ace of the Mile relay team, Jeff Bilik, Team Captain Scott Coffman, Long Dis- tance runner Chris Laurent, Captain of the field events, Dave Shifley and 440 man John Ridgway. All these are going to be hard to replace, but with the coming up underclassmen, there is a bright future ahead for the New Haven track team.

Coach Kay Heiney, the mentor ot the girls ' tennis team had a problem as she gathered her handful of hope- fuls for the 1976 season. She had only four Seniors on the entire squad to work with. After those four girls, with whom much of the experience in actual tennis competition belongs, the rest of the squad was comprised of Sophomores and Freshmen, with a sprinkling of Juniors here and there.

Not that the entire blame of the los- ing is on the Freshmen and Sopho- mores, they held their own for much of their time on the courts. The 6-0, 6- 1 defeats on their parts looked deceiving, the games often went much into deuce and wound up much closer than it looked on paper. They say experience makes its own breaks. If so, then such is the solution to this year ' s woes. With only four Seniors leaving through graduation, experience is going to be the key to success, for next year ' s squad as Sue Holt, Norene Jones, Cathy Sickafoose, Pam Sickafoose, Cathy Kortenber, Jamie Stephens, Karen Klotz, Cunningham, and Barb Kiebel up the list of those returning. ndy Ci head Arching to get the most from her serve, Barb Kiebel eyes the ball as she prepares to hit southpaw style.

NO , N OT TM, " F When the New Haven Bulldogs 1976 Baseball Squad started out the year, the members of the team set down three basic goals which they wished to accomplish by the sea- son ' s end. One was to finish above 500, they did, finishing with a 15-13 record. Two, they wanted to win the conference. The diamondmen tied for the championship with four other teams in the NEIAC, thus bringing home their second conference crown in three years. Thirdly, the Bulldogs r W v ' r Shiftin g into high gear, Mark Hevel rounds third and heads for home in action against Northrop. Ivlark ' s bat proved to be an offense asset as he hit .357. V Getting the number two pitching job, Jay Metzger proved that he could hold his own on the mound. His high point of the year was a 2- four hitter against East Noble where he struck out 10. wanted to win a sectional, something the diamondmen haven ' t done since 1971. Well, two out of three ain ' t all that bad. 1976 was supposed to be one of those years that Don Huml ' s dia- mondmen were to put it all together. The squad had a strong mound staff, and some sticks at the plate, but then things started to happen. Two of the three returning starters did not go out for the team, and the hot sticks sud- denly went very cold. After the first ten games, the team sported a 3-7 record and boasted a team batting average that hovered around .200. Something needed to be done, prac- tice didn ' t help, maybe extra prac- tices hurt more than they helped, it was something that the players had to work out on their own, and sooner or later they did. Sporting an unimpres- sive 8-8 record, the Bulldogs, took things into their own hands and busted out of their slump. Their record jumped to 13-8 and the bat- ting averages soared as six players batted above .300. One of the two most experienced ball players on Coach Huml ' s squad, catcher Gayle Shaf- fer displays the swing that brought him a solid .365 average. Making contact with the pitch is second base- man Rick Kinney, Kinney batted second for the better part of the year and hit .286.

We ' ll all go on but times won ' t be the same, we won ' t be as carefree or as at home. " That Down Home Feeling ... " makes NHHS ours. Greeting his parents during the pregame cer- emonies for the Seniors ' last home game is Senior Scott Reifsnider with his parents Mr. Mrs. John Reifsnider. The Bulldogs won the game along with the NEIC championship. Partly because of tradition and partly for recognition came the senior prank with three garbage bags of confetti, a beer can for each teacher with their name on it, and a few shoe polished windows letting underclass- men know what the word senior meant. As the year came to an end the Senior Dinner Dance was held at Goeglein ' s Barn with music from " Destiny " Following the dinner dance many goodbye tears were shed when everyone finally realized that four years of sharing good times had come to an end. Senior activities were lead by Jay Metzger — president, Patty Snyder — vice president, Nancy Maddox — sec- retary. Sue Johnson— treasurer. 1 Ib rij 1 1 1 B L 1 1 H iM KV BmH im 1 1 1 1 8 This year seniors dressed up for Halloween Shown above are Lynn Schmidt dressed as a little girl and Kay Elsea as an angel.

Sixty percent ot them, however, were half day students who were occupied with a job or voca- tional school training. It was understandable to see the Seniors with sparse attendance at pep sessions, but this didn ' t put a damper on the spirits of the ones who were there. To show their cornlness many Sen- ors dressed up for Halloween. Kay Elsea portrayed herself as an angel, and Lynn Schmidt dressed as a little girl. The Seniors also had class dress- up and dress-down days. On dress- up day everyone came In his best outfit. Dress-down day saw most Sen- iors come looking like bums in their jeans and overalls. Senior officers for the Class of 76 were Sec- retary Nancy Maddox, Vice-president Patty Snyder, President Jay Metzger, Treasurer Sue Jotinson. Senior Ann Klotz models the dress which she made while in sewing class, Ann was also in one of the woodworking classes and built a sewing cabinet Seniors display their spirit with this poster made during Homecoming week.

Underclassmen worked hard to beat the Seniors in all phases of com- petition, but somehow always ended upon the short end. As the year goes on Freshmen dream for three more years till they ' ll be Seniors, Sophomores just exist and wait to beat next year ' s Seniors and the Juniors just want to " get out!

Everyone wants to inave their own identity. Areas where this is best shown are in the fields of art and music. Art classes this year displayed a 1 foot by 7 foot Batman poster. Ma( ing plans for a giant chess set, were also among their activities. In the music business the band went to Disney World and also played for President Ford during his visit to Fort Wayne.

One of the most active clubs was Student Congress. They were in charge of Homecoming, sponsored the Sweetheart Dance and also put three booths in Sadie Hawkins fair. Getting a quorum caused many prob- lems for the club, and failing to get a majority vote on the time for morning meetings meant that the club met at 7:07 a.m. on Wednesday mornings. Trying hard — first to go to Mardi Gras and later changed to Florida, the marching band sponsored an auction, ice cream social, sold fruit, sold candy and sponsored many car washes to earn money, Clubs gave students an opportunity to pursue interests, gain new friends, do things for New Haven, join with people, obtain new ideals and knowl- edge of what each club contributes to the school. Being involved often meant many hours of hard work, forgotten meals, late nights after school on the news- paper or yearbook. " That Down Home Feeling ...

Members of the Concert Choir sing very seriously at the last time they ' ll sing together before graduation. Combining close to 80 voices dur- ing second period brought togetiner many friendships, many good times and funny experiences. (Do you remember the time . . . ?) But mostly it combined students to make up the 1976 Concert Choir. There was always something going on to break the monotony. There were posters made for Homecoming, Sectionals, and home games. There was the piano playing " Happy Birth- day " for any and everyone around the room having a birthday, and there was the time the bass section went on strike for more parts. Jazz, classical and rock comprised Concert Choirs selection which included " Enter the Young, " " Coun- try Roads, " " We May Never Pass This Way Again, " " The Way We Were, " and their traditonal song " Mame. " Instead of having Girls Glee as in previous years a Mixed Chorus was put together this year. Its purpose was for students who had never been in a choir before or students who wer- en ' t quite ready for concert choir. Comprised of mostly girls anyway, they sang their way into the hearts of many.

Flashes of bright red, white and blue attracted audiences as 30 guys and gals ran to the risers to " In the Mood. " As they reached their places, under the direction of Mr. Charles Henke, they sang and charmed their way into the hearts of many. Performing such songs as " Love is Blue, " " After the Goldrush, " " Coun- try Roads, " " Side by Side, " " The Way We Were, " and many other rock, contemporary and country songs. Instrumentalists backed up soloists and groups with pianos, drums, guitars, trumpets and saxo- phones. Although daily rehearsals would seemingly tire students, unexpected incidents kept the group enthusiastic. After programs. Swing Choir swarmed to Pizza Hut or a party at a student ' s home, where laughter con- tinued. For their evening performances. Swing Choir received financial dona- tions which paid for uniforms and other music supplies. . • Highlights stretch out as the rest of the band works out music problems during a short break created by the heat at a music rehearsal. BAND U L L D O G by DAWN SNYDER At 5:00 a.m. reveille echoed through Camp Potawotamie on Blackman Lake. Moments later, sleepy band campers could be seen coming out of various cabins and heading for the " community water hole, " where teeth were brushed and cold or colder water was splashed in all directions. Then all were off to the practice field for morning marching rehearsal, dressed in their warmest clothes. Everyone was tired, and there were a few that had ventured out of the cabins after " lights out " and had calestenics ' a la Crisler. (Mrs. Crisler was the head chaper- one). With breakfast and the prospect of food, everyone came to life. Some didn ' t think that the food was so great, but it was warm, and the red- blooded, all — American male stom- ach didn ' t suffer. Usually after breakfast the group disassembled to get the cabins ready for the daily inspection, with the exception of Monday when the fresh- men were initiated. They began their high school experiences with Dippity- Do and Corn flakes in their hair, char- Using his band instrument, the trombone, for a crutch Paul Chapman gives a look of being overworked.

Junior Doug Swygart concentrates on his music as he plays the sousaphone during one ot the many camp practice sessions. The Members of the marching band tal e time out from paractice to " munch down. " coal on their faces, limburger cheese around their necks, and wearing huge cardboard signs marked with a 76. It was all in fun and all of the freshmen survived. On a typical day, the air was a little warmer for the after-breakfast rehearsal. As the air warmed up, jackets and sweatshirts were strewn across the field. Not much was left behind after rehearsal — the unlucky person who did lose something had to sing for the assembly after supper to reclaim the last article. During these marching rehearsals the con- test show that eventually won sweep- stakes at the N.I.S.B.O.V.A. Marching Contest was put together. Finally came sectional rehearsals — a chance to sit down! The drum- mers met by the teepee, the flutes practiced on a hill, the trumpets were under the porch, the combined sounds of the three groups filled the air with a collage of different songs. The Highlights were practicing on the field with a recording. They were on their feet almost constantly. After lunch there was a short sec- tional rehearsal, then the whole band met around the flagpole to practice together. During this time, salt water was passed around to soothe cracked and bleeding lips. Constant practicing was especially hard on the brass players. Finally the band was dismissed for two and one-half hours of free time. Swimming, sunning, ping-pong, bumper pool, air hockey, tennis, jumping on the mini-trampolines, and sleeping seemed to be the favorites. Soon the bell rang for supper. Meals were a familiar routine. Everyone stood and sang the Doxology, ate and then Mr. Milliman made announcements, listened to singers who hoped to recover lost articles, and paddled all who came to dinner with no shoes. Then, giving the group time to spray themselves with mosquito repellant and find their jackets, there was another marching rehearsal. This usually lasted until it was too dark to see the formations, and then the band reassembled in the lodge to learn dance steps. By this time, although spirits were high, enthusiasm was getting low, so after a short entertainment period (a moonlight dip or silent movies) the campers hurried back to eat cookies or cook pizzas in a Toast-R-Oven before lights out. The flashlight crews started their rounds and the band prepared for another day. By the end of the week squad lead- ers were hoarse and nerves were shot, but parents and friends who came to see the show were proud to see how much the band had accom- plished in one short week. Finally the band went home just beginning to prepare for the ultimate goal: SWEEP- STAKES 75.

The first Saturday of spring vaca- tion two thirds of the band piled into buses for a four day stay in Florida. The trip down took almost a day and a half. The band spent two days at Disney World. The band and High- lights marched in the Disney parade. After Disney World the buses headed to Sea World where the band members saw a seal and dolphin show. The next stop was Cape Ken- nedy. The group was able to see the space museum, some actual launch sites and toured the buildings where spaceships are assembled. The time to return to New Haven came too soon. On the return trip they stopped at St. Augestine, the oldest settlement in the U.S. and saw the many Spanish buildings and forts. The whole trip cost each member $100, excluding meals and spending money. Top right Band members sought out and enjoyed the pool and the sun |ust after their arrival at the hotel in Florida.

Senior Alex Skalecki con- tributed to this year ' s HERALD by typing many of the stories. Starting off the year with a staff that knew virtually nothing proved to be a challenge for Mrs. Jean Parrish, new publications advisor. One of the first changes the staff made was to change from a t radi- tional newspaper to a magazine for- mat. Late hours after school, copy rushed to meet deadlines, talking photographers into taking pictures, and then trying to get them printed were some aspects of the HERALD staffs duties that students rarely wit- nessed. On the day the paper was to be at the printers, anyone walking around Room 36 could witness sheer pande- monium from the HERALD staff. One could usually hear " Someone help me! I forgot to write an editorial, " from Editor Lynn Schmidt. On the day the papers arrived, everyone anxiously got their HERALD and rummaged through to find fea- ture editor, Dan Brown " Brownies " article. The same day, one could see Lynn getting yelled at by at least one pho- tographer because she forgot ANOTHER byline. Through all her mistakes, Lynn led the staff to receive a first place rating on the HERALD for the first semester. At the banquet in May, Senior Lisa Gering, sports editor was awarded the Outstanding HERALD staff mem- ber, which was voted upon by the entire staff. Outstanding photogra- pher named was Senior Mike Pratt. Mike was voted by both the HERALD and MIRAGE staffs. Printing a picture for the HERALD are Seniors Mike Pratt and Tom Bennett. Mike was voted as " OutstanClrg Photographer " by the publi- cation staffs. 158— HtRALD Showing approval on a comment made about one of tiis articles is Feature Editor Dan Brown. HERALD STAFF.

T ILL The MIRAGE is a result of aimless sixth periods and befuddled MIRAGE staffers wandering in fourth, and between pub A and room 36, as each attempted their section of the year- book. At first, the jokes, laughter, and noise took control. As the total confu- sion that is created whenever 1 6 rest- less students are grouped together slowed progress as it was more fun watching Mike Davis ' s imitation of Richard Nixon than to crop a picture or think up a caption. The MfRAGE staff slowly started to come together in mid-July when " to be " yearbook staffers and photogra- phers mustered up notebooks, pen- cils, rubber cement, yearbooks, and cameras in preparation for a one or two week stay at the Ball State Jour- nalism Workshop. The workshop days were long and jammed full with fun and learning. Many nights the staffers stayed up into the wee hours of the morning trying to finish the assignments that were due the next day. As the workshop came to a close newly made friends exchanged addresses, final assignments were finished and turned in and all waited to put their new ideas into action. After working all day on other sub- jects it was often hard to concentrate on the yearbook. Mrs. Parrish ' s con- stant reminder to get to work helped but sometimes all attention was shifted toward Dan Brown and his magic show. Another distraction arose when Shelly Lash and Debt Louis showed up in room 36 with their clown suits on. But as MIRAGE staffers know the yearbook was not all fun and games. To complete a 200 page book there is a lot of work to be done. Staffers often stayed till after midnight to meet a deadline. One weekend the MIRAGE staff were " locked in " Mrs. Parrish ' s house, iso- lated from the rest of the world in order to complete a deadline pack- age. It is now June 8 and the year- book is near completion. Mirage — 161 family student Congress is said to be one of the most influential organizations at New Haven High School. Its main purpose is to represent the students when planning events for the better- ment of the school. As in past years Student Congress planned and carried out almost all plans for Homecoming this past year. Members planned the parade, dance, pep rally, coronation of the Home- coming court, as well as most other Homecoming activities. Congress participated with two booths at the Sadie Hawkins Fair, planned school Thanksgiving and Christmas projects, sold purple and gold Bulldog jackets and put on the Valentine ' s Day " Sweetheart Dance.

Having one of its largest groups in years, Pep Club helped keep school spirit high by using a variety of cheers to help back the Bulldogs. The group was made up mostly of girls with a few guys also being members. The cheerleaders also belonged to this group, one of the largest in the school. One fund raising project of the Pep Club was the selling of purple and gold rooters for fans to use at the games. The group also sold purple and gold caps for the basketball sec- tionals to keep up the New Haven tra- dition. The officers of Pep Club were: President, Shelly Lash; Vice-Presi- dent, Mark Lee; Treasurer, Mike Cunegin and Secretary, Diane Bow- ers. The sponsors were Mrs. June Holt and Mrs. Patsy Pitzer.

The annual event of the Y-teens this year was a large Saint Patrick ' s Day party for the residents of the Irene Byron Health Center. Sonne pil- lows made by the Y-teens were given as favors. A party was also given for the children at the Allen County Crip- pled Children ' s Home at Halloween. Y-teens were kept busy with money making and service projects the entire year. They collected can goods for the needy, made kits for the Wells Baby Clinic, sold taffy apples in the cafeteria, and had a car wash at the Standard Service Center. Gloria Wilson, from the Ft. Wayne- Allen County Day Care Centers spoke to the club about the many ser- vices of the center and the Y-teens donated toothbrushes and tooth- paste, along with pillows to the chil- dren. A potluck for the club was held at Cheryl Kruse ' s house and plans were made for the advisers ' party. The advisers ' party was held at the YWCA to honor all the advisers of Y-teens in Ft. Wayne. Interclub council was held every month at the YWCA. This was a time when all Y-teen clubs could get together and exchange ideas. " Girls like the club because it is a service club and they gain a lot of self-satisfaction from helping others. " commented sponsor Mrs. Pam Weaver. The club built up the mem- bership this year and participated in many new activities.

Like all other clubs much of the time was devoted to raising money. Increasing the treasury was done by ways of working the coat check and canteen at ball games and selling license plates. The major money making project was environmental, the selling of trees and vegetable plants. Not all activity was work though. Several meetings were spent on dis- cussions, movies, or experiments. There were three trips. The first trip was to the Sechler Pickle Factory. Another trip found club members braving the cold and wet elements on a spelunking adventure. A final event was an overnight canoe trip in south- ern Indiana. After a very profitable year the sci- ence club finished with a gargantuan feast.

During the time they stay at conference, the guys have a chance to compete in athletics and learn about Christ. To make money to help send guys to conference, the club sponsored several car washes, sold ads on the basketball programs, fire extinguish- ers and used records, and had a radio raffle. FCA officers this year were: Presi- dent, Mike Davis; Vice-President, Brad Stephens: Secretary, Craig Dar- nell: and Treasurer, Mark Hevel. Students in National Forensic League enjoy competing against stu- dents from other schools in both first semester debate tournaments and solo speech tourneys held all year long. In addition to the fun there are also monetary rewards. Kim Notestine won a bond from the Voice of Democ- racy Contest; some members had expense-paid trips to State Finals.

Although the club membership was decreasi ng, those involved were very interested. The club members ordered T-shirts, displaying Spanish Culture, with the printed saying Que Pasa Amigo? across the front. At the Christmas Party there was a white elephant exchange with trivial gifts being passed on. As the year progressed the Span- ish Club did various things to bring in money.

" The club presented one-act plays which the members presented to any organization upon request. These plays were performed for convales- cent homes and many clubs in the surrounding area. Several hours of hard work had to be put in by each member in order to even present the one-act plays. Each member did an excellent job, whether it was gathering props, booking the plays or actually acting. Starring in the two-act was an all girl cast. In the show were Amy Coff- man, Dawn Lopshire, Sue Holt, Laura Coffman and Margie Louden. Combined efforts of all M G members were required to stage the production. Props, constumes, stag- ing and lighting were taken care of by the group before the play was per- formed. The cast of the two-act stops to talk with Mr, May during dress rehearsal, as the stage crew gets ready for the next scene. 176 — Masque and Gavel MASQUE AND GAVEL.

That Down Home Feeling.. . ' a year filled with fun! Remember when? When we look back over the year many memories of the fun times will remain. Brownie ' s magic act, Dan and " Reefer ' s " polo ponys or Ben Gay and Fag Newton imitations. Davis ' Richard Nixon, Howard Cosell and constantly mocking my laugh, how I talk and how I run. Shelly and Louis ' clown costumes. Dave ' s firetruck noises or Mark and Dan ' s thirteen second record run through the course in room 36. The ' book ' is nearly finished! Thanks to help from the dedicated part of the staff. It was a lot of play, a lot of hard work, and a lot of rushed meals (Rootbeer, McDonalds, and ' Roble Nomans ' ). Many people worked very hard on this year ' s book and words cannot express how much this has meant. This includes Deb Bultemeyer and Gina Lothamer for the dedica- tion they had, Mike Pratt for all the work he did for the MIRAGE and Dave, Mark, Penny, and Brent for giving up their summer vacation to help out. Appreciation goes to: Ms. Sue Dettmer for the help she has given me in past years; my parents, Maxi and Halbert; family and friends for standing behind me in all my crises; Mrs. Barb Ahlersmeyer for helping us in pinches; Mr. Stan Parrish for putting up with the lock-in and Mrs. P ' s late nights with us; and of course, the most important member of our staff, Mrs. Jean Parrish (mom) for putting up with us period. Thanks should also go to; Mr. Dean Musser Jr. for the Band Sweepstakes pictures; Mr. Larry Pensinger for pictures of the Florida trip; Dawn Snyder for Band Camp copy; Mr. and Mrs. Tom Walker for taking pictures, and developing and printing the pictures on such short notice during ' deadline crisis ' ; all advertisers; the senior parents; students; and the faculty members that let staff members out of class to meet last minute dead- lines. A special thanks goes to the Ball State Journalism instructors who helped us during the workshops. They include; Colonel Chuck Savedge, Nela Patterson, Les Howell and Marion Breedan. I wish to thank three people in particular; Mandy, Tindall, and Marcus. These people not only were a great help with the yearbook but were good friends. As for the ' book ' everything is centered around the theme " That Down Home Feeling ... " The ' 76 staff tried to relay the message that New Haven is ours. It is small enough to be able to know almost everyone yet big enough not to be called country. Being " at home " only means that we feel comfortable here and that it is a carefree phase of our life. . . Will we ever again experience " That Down Home Feeling . . . ?

I ' That Down Home Feeling... ' It was some year... " That Down Home Feeling . . . " It was some year. It saw the band march ott with NISBOVA Sweep- stakes, and it saw the date ot Home- coming changed as many times as an infant ' s diaper. " That Down Home Feeling . . . " It was some year. It saw the winter dance return and it saw publications win the theme for Sadie Hawkins " MOONSHINE MADNESS. " It saw 130 couples attend the Prom " Just You ' n ' Me " where Karen Klotz and Mark Hevel reigned as King and Queen. " That Down Home Feeling . . . " It was some year. It saw activity periods closed. Wednesdays activity remained the same as previous years with the other days of the week for mini-courses, club meetings and pep sessions. " That Down Home Feeling ... " Nationally it was some year. It saw the Cincinnati Reds win the World Series, Pittsburgh the super Bowl. It saw Rutherford win the Indianapolis 500 and Indiana University have an unde- feated season and win the NCAA Championship . " That Down Home Feeling . . . " It saw campaigns and primaries. It saw President Ford in Fort Wayne cam- paigning and it saw President Ford and former Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter win the Indiana Primary. The year also saw Howard Hughes and J. Paul Getty, two of the world ' s richest men die. " That Down Home Feeling . . . " It was some year . . .
