The last year for this school. Seniors attended it for four years looking at the color faded walls, and cracked ceilings while they walked through the old west building. They are glad to be getting out but, after May,25 they will look back and remember their four years just Passing Through this high school. DURING THE CLOSING of the gym, senior Ken Theisen models the old band uniforms. THERE WERE MANY different feelings about the Dekalb game. Many of these expressions are shown on people faces.

They will have memories of faded walls, cracked ceilings etc., as they look forward to newly painted walls, new ceilings and many other new things in the new school. This was the last year for running out to the park for a quick illegal smoke between classes, eating lunch at Coney King or eating in the park or visiting Dan Purvis ' or Barrett ' s. The four years you have spent or will spend in high school are ones that will have to include the memo- ries of this school good or bad, when you look back on the years you have spent Just Passing Through here. Seniors may remember their four years Just Passing Through with mixed feelings. They saw a non win- ning football season, a not so good basketball season, and a close call with Carroll at the sectional game, along with Mike Sickafoose named to the All Star Basketball team. At last, we should leave this high school keeping in mind the years or year we spent here just Passing Through. FOR DAYS AFTER the assembly, Sunshine Express was talked about by the student body. Everyone just passes through ' VIC THE BULLDOG, senior Mark Lee, puts on one of his many goofy stunts at the bas- ketball games. r AFTER THEIR VISIT to Mrs. lean Parrish ' s lournalism class, Roger Morgan and Bobby Knight talk to senior, Mark Hellinger. :■ DURING THE HOMECOMING pep session Senior Mike Davis, escorts 1976 ' s homecom- ing queen Shelly Lash. " CINDERBULL " , MRS. JUNE Holt, helped the women faculty put on their version of Cin- derella at the sectional pep session. Opening — 5 Sunshine Express By " lust Passing Through " the year here, we have seen the Music Department put on the musical " Hello Dolly. " There were a lot of mixed feelings on the play. We also saw the football team go through a season without winning a game. Student Congress put on the Sweetheart Dance for the second year. Sadie Hawkins provided stu- dents with an evening of fun along with profits for the clubs sponsoring booths. Did you see the Fine Arts Club have their " Happening 77 " talent show? Now there was a show. The singing, dancing and character acts were good. PRACTICE, PRACTICE AND more practice is why seniors Sue Holt and Kent Snyder make themselves at home in the auditorium. They are practicing for the " Hello Dolly " presen- tation. SUNSHINE EXPRESS, A group from Ohio came to New Haven to play for an assembly. They played music from now to back in the ' 50 ' s. " MUMMY " FOR A day is senior Mark Hel- linger. Mark used real creativity in designing his Halloween costume. 6 — Student life ♦rocks school YEARBOOKS ARRIVED ON the day of Homecoming and junior Leslie Weikel and sophomore David Ocock gave up their fun at the Homecoming dance to hand out the books. SENIORS SARAH BRUDER, Greg Goodwin and Lynn )ury take time out of their work on the MIRAGE to talk. If you really enjoy rock music then I ' m sure you attended the rock con- certs held at the Coliseum. Foghat, Kiss, Ted Nugent, ZZ Top and Black Sabbath were just a few of the many groups that came. Prom went by with the theme being " I Need You. " Most seniors went to the dinner dance and had a lot of fun passing out awards, danc- ing and remembering the years before. Graduation was a little dif- ferent this year as students turned their tassels on a Wednesday eve- ning instead of the traditional Sun- day. Do you realize that you have been " Just Passing Through " another year here? It may have been exciting and it may not have but it has made us another year older. Many NHHS students have started fending for themselves by partici- pating in the business world. Jobs vary from washing cars, to bussing tables to working in well-known stores. Most students work to save money for college or a rainy day. Then there are some who use their earnings for " on the spur of the moment pleasures " which doesn ' t sound so bad. There are students who get train- ing while on the job. Such students including the Steno Lab, go to local businesses and work. Although they don ' t get paid much, it is a good experience. Steno Lab students are evaluated while on the job instead of getting graded. Guidance counselors often have information on where students may have the best chance of getting jobs. Some stores notify schools for cer- tain positions. Local businesses such as grocery stores, drug stores, clothing stores and many of the restaurants employ New Haven students. At least one thing agreed on if anything, is that responsibility learned by having a job is very use- ful after high school days are gone. Jobs provide money that makes students world go around ENJOYING A PAUSE in business, senior Nancy Crubb finds time to pose for the pho- tographer.

At the conclusion of the basket- ball season, there was no more use for pep sessions. Therefore, Princi- pal Paul Goeglein got together with the staff to solve the problem of having 35 minutes to fit into the reg- ular schedule. Finally they created schedule D, a new style schedule just for Fridays. This made classes an hour long with a ten minute passing period between first and second and fifth and sixth periods. At the sectional pep session the women faculty members performed a spirit version of Cinderella called " Cinderbull " . They spent six hours after school rehearsing the skit. Other skits were done by Pep Club, and varsity cheerleaders. MR. GOEGLEIN TELLS about the wreath sent by arch rival Harding. A card sent along with the wreath read; " Last year we met you in defeat, and now again tonight we meet. We think you ' re brave to even try, because it ' s YOUR turn todie!

Student Con- gress had activities planned for the week of Homecoming. They were: Monday, " Dress Down Day " ; Tues- day, " Mr. Muscles " ; Wednesday, " Mix ' em up " ; and Friday, " Hats off. " The parade was conducted on Thursday night. Even though it rained all day, the sun came out in time for the parade. After the parade the gymnasium was the scene for the pep rally. At the rally the winners were announced in the float and car dec- oration contest. The pep rally suc- ceeded in raising the spirits of stu- dents, parents and teachers for the Homecoming game against the Winchester Falcons. Friday night finally rolled around and the stands were crowded with New Haven supporters awaiting the game. The game ended with a score of New Haven and Winchester 35. Students and alumni appeared at school for the homecoming dance. " Brushfire " was the featured band.

Homecoming — 13 Auditorium, cafeteria combined in new concept ABOVE THE MAIN entrance is the school banner so many will remember, New Haven High School. ■ Br II P ! 14 — New school 1 m 1,J L -: .• I; In 1923, the first stage of the third existing NHHS was built. Four stages followed: 1934, 1947, 1954, and the last addition in 1964. A new concept in auditoriums will be incorporated in the new school. It will be a cafeteria and also an auditorium. Being 80 feet wide, the new stage is 30 feet wider than the stage in the Junior High build- ing. All of the departments are grouped together. Each department will have an office where the teach- ers may go during their prep period. Inside the double decked gymna- sium, there are locker rooms for both boys and girls, a dance room and wrestling room. On the upper deck there is an indoor track for the cross country and track teams. Between the two decks combined, the gymnasium will be able to seat roughly 3,000 people. Until this year, the IMC has always been on the upper floors of the high school. In the new school it is on the main floor. It has a dark room (for media use), T.V. studio, conference rooms, isolation rooms, and the list goes on and on. HAVING A PURPLE and gold ceiling, the gymnasium features an inside track on the second floor. The gym will seat 2700. I I it MANY HALLS IN the new school will be as wide as the main entrance, 22 feet. Tic ket and concession sales will also be available. STACKS OF CHAIRS are ready to be unpacked for the wear and tear of the years to come. IMC has study carols for private use. New school — 15 Dolly says hello to New Haven CORNELIUS, JUNIOR WARREN Schimmol- " The show must go on " was probably ler and Barnat) y sophomore Kurt Swank the inspiration that kept the cast of look humillat ed as they are catching trouble " Hello Dolly " going since it was the from their boss - start of the flu season. Dolly Levi, portrayed by senior Sue Holt, started the play with a song announcing her profession as a match- maker. Senior Kent Snyder played Dol- ly ' s victim as Horace Vandergelder. Other characters were Barnaby, sopho- more Kurt Swank; Cornelius, junior Warren Schimmoller; Mrs. Malloy, sen- ior Julie Greenwood; Minnie Fay, senior Sue Grimmer; Ambrose, sophomore Jay Leonard; Ermegard, sophomore Danelle Lawson and Ernestina was senior Kathy Burford. Burford was also choreogra- pher for the play. Ideas and designs for the settings of " Hello Dolly " came from the Enchanted Hills Playhouse in Syracuse. Mr. Gerald Isch, Mr. Charles Henke and Mr. Paul Milliman went to " Hello Dolly " there to get ideas for New Haven ' s production. An approximate total of about 50 hours were put into the settings by Mr. Isch and talented students. Working [ with a strict budget, the stage crew had to be resourceful so they constructed the props mostly out of cardboard, can- ! vas stretched over wooden frames, i paint and ingenuity. A lot of work also went into the musi- cal accompaniment which was directed by Mr. Paul Milliman. He selected peo- ple out of the concert and symphonic bands to perform for the occasion. Beginning after contest the selected band started rehearsals after school for two days out of the week and two j nights after supper. The music for " Hello Dolly " was I ordered from the Tams-Whitmart Pub- lishing Company. The music contained many hard and difficult key changes. Two weeks before the play date the band then rehearsed with the full cast. After the performances were over Sat- urday Nov. 13, everyone involved with the production was invited to the South East YMCA for refreshments. The pool was also opened for use. When interviewed Mr. Milliman and ! Mr. Henke replied " I enjoyed working with them. They were all a great bunch of kids.

Ellen Wallace and Nancy Bergman clown it up at a party. Planning on Mondays what stu- dents are going to do on the follow- ing weekends tends to draw the mind away from school work. Many students this past year spent most of Mondays telling their friends about the date or party they attended the weekend before. On Wednesday students were drawn to the boy ' s gym during open activity period, for class competi- tion. Mrs. Virginia Jones organized everything for the big events. Even the fearless faculty was involved. After weeks of successful class com- petition the juniors were in first with 24 points, the seniors in second with 23 points, faculty in third with 22 points, sophomores in fourth with 19 points and freshmen in last with 17 points.

Both aircrafts exploded and burned leaving 570 dead. New Haven Train Wreck; two N W trains crashed east of New Haven claiming one life and injuring 3.

Country couples cuddle to Sundance With the theme being " Country Cuddlin " , submitted by the Science Club, Sadie Hawkins was all set for a real hillbilly hoedown. As usual, the country fair took place in the cafeteria with its various booths set up by school clubs. Ger- man Club had a dunking booth in which Mr. Sam Mclnturff got all washed-up. Student Congress had a peep show rated XXX where some of our respectable teachers were shown in their true respects. Span- ish Club drew in quite a lot of hill- billies going through their second childhood as they enjoyed them- selves in the tricycle races while the flower children indulged in the dai- sies supplied by the Fine Arts Club. junior Olympics appealed to many couples as they gathered to beat each other or just to have fun. Many couples took in the Clerical Lab flick starring Mr. Norman Ste- phan and his girls. Mr. Walker took the pictures of the " cuddlin " couples for momen- tos of their hoedown. Eight o ' clock marked the time when the group Sundance kicked off the dance with rock, square and slow dance music which was led by Mrs. Jody Miller. Marrin ' Sam made his annual debut to unite the couples together but, there was a hitch this year as the gals were on one side with rings and certificates in hand while guys were cowering against the opposite wall. When the word was given, hill- billy hullabaloo broke lo ose as the chase went on. After all had settled and vows were exchanged, the dance continued and more memo- ries were added to the school year of 1976-1977. 24 — Sadie Hawkins MR.

" One asks what is ' Happening ' ? It ' s a talent show put on once a year by the Fine Arts Club, headed by Mr. Charles Henke. For weeks ahead of time, students planned and practiced for their chance to get into the great show. Mr. Henke, choir director and Eng- lish teacher, gave students passes for activity period, to have him audition them. Over 150 students tried out for the performance. But out of the 150 only 24 acts were chosen. The acts were a variety of six solo ' s, three skits and eight ensembles. Songs from Barbra Streisand ' s lat- est movie " A Star is Born " were the most favored by the large crowd. Sophomores, Beth Fraser and Cathy Sickafoose both did solos from the soundtrack. The song " Queen Bee " was sung by Laura Coffman, with back up by Beth Crow and Cathy Sickafoose. Kent Snyder ' s band " Rit- ual " consisting of Kent, Craig Dar- nell, Mark Best and Kevin Rum- baugh, played back up for a majority of the numbers. Skits filled in between acts, to give the performers and stagehands more time to get things organized. Juggling was done by Dave Mathews and Craig Darnell. A ventriloquism act called " Mr. Daniels and Fuzzy " improvised by sophomores Jay Leonard and Dan Wallace took up slack time between acts. Over all the 1977 version of " Happening " was a smash hit with the audience. EXPRESSING HIS THOUGHTS on the basket- ball team ' s capabilities, Coach John Hans asks for the student body ' s support. PERFORMING IN " CINDERBULL " , the lady 6 faculty ' s rendition of Cinderella, is Ms. Carol Ryan, alias Fairy Godperson. SHOWING THEIR SPIRIT and support, the Freshman Class made many signs for their part of Sectional Hall. Vit and al! 28 — Sectionals One point proves too much for Bulldogs UP ON THEIR feet more than in their seats, the fans cheer another bulldog bucket. Beginning with the sectional draw February 23, Hoosier Hysteria hit New Haven High. It was determined that fateful day that the Bulldogs would be in Sectional Two and play the Carroll Chargers, a very tough team. Hopes were high that the team would win because in regular season play they had defeated Car- roll. March 4-5 many students were scurrying around putting together what they hoped might bring honor to their class by capturing Sectional Hall honors. Seniors ' version of the " funnies " placed them in first place. Senior Sue Koch masterminded the project. Tuesday was mixed with tension and excitement. The pep session was highlighted by the lady faculty ' s version of Cinderella, " Cinderbull. " Cars assembled at 5:30 p.m. in the parking lot for the annual caravan to the coliseum. A cash prize was given for the best decorated car. The first quarter of the game ended with New Haven out in front by two points. This would be the only time the Bulldogs would have the lead. After being down as much as 18 points in the third, New Haven came alive to cut the margin 15 points. With two seconds showing on the clock, senior Mike Sickafoose made a long inbounds pass to senior Ken Stark who made a layup good at the buzzer, but it was too late. Final score was Carroll 66, New Haven 65. SHATTERED DREAMS of a sectional win are reflected in a cluttered sectional hall. MOVING WITHIN two points during the third quarter, Coach Ron Hoffer, Coach John Hans, and senior Gary Goodwin become more confident of a win. Sectionals — 29 Class of 77 takes ' Antler Dance ' as own NO, IT ' S NOT the Gong Show it ' s only Mike Vidra displaying one of his many hidden tal- ents at the Senior Dinner Dance. REALLY GETTING IN to the swing of things is Rich Augenstine as he boogies to the beat of " Brushfire " in the first dance of the night. THE SENIOR CLASS enjoys their last time together before graduating. They invented their own dance called the " Antler Dance " 30 — Senior Dinner Dance MEMBERS OF THE W.W.E.O. Club tell the whole class the real, or so they say, meaning of W.W.E.O— We Wuv Each Other. Most classes have their own song, their own motto and their own flower, but the senior class this year were a very unique group. They claimed the " Antler Dance " to be their dance at the annual Senior Dinner Dance. Members of the Class of 77 and class sponsors arrived at Goeglein ' s Barn on May 24 for dinner, a good time, dancing and their last time together before graduation. After filling their stomachs with either swiss steak or ham, the class officers presented several members of the class with well-deserved awards. Greg Goodwin and Gayle Rath were the biggest flirts, the tall- est two were Mark Erbelding and Debi Louis, Mike Sickafoose and Karen Klotz were honored as the most athletic members, Sue Holt and Mark Lee the class clowns, Lynne |ury and Grant Becker did the best job at skipping school, Chris Pemberton was " Foxy Lady " , Jim Lothamer was the guy most respected and Dawn Gibson was the most popular girl. Almost every- one received some type of an award. While waiting for the band, " Brushfire, " to finish setting up, several kids gave special thanks and displayed some of their unusual tal- ent. Dave Matthew ' s joke about beer was well received, Bill Line- berry entertained everyone by play- ing " Popcorn " on his teeth and Mike Vidra received a bundle of laughs, screams and gasps as he reached his right hand over his head and cupped his chin in his hand. As the band began playing Cathy Dewalsche and Dave Kinney, voted the two best dancers, started the rest of the crowd dancing. " Since this is the last time we ' ll all be together I think the last dance of the night should be the ' Antler Dance ' ! The dance of the Class of ' 77, " said Mark Lee as everyone came to their feet, raised their hands to their heads in the form of antlers and danced. The night ended all too quickly and many left for home with fond memories and many tears. RETURNING FROM COLLEGE after being away for a year, Ed Stumpf plans to graduate with his class and thanks his fellow class- mates for being so great. Senior Dinner Dance — 31 Prom moves to IU-PU ballroom My hair isn ' t dry yet and it ' s 5:30. I know it ' s never going to hold curl tonight. The flowers! I was supposed to pick them up at one.

I can ' t take a bath in five minutes!! I knew I should have laid out in the sun today. I look whi- ter than my dress.

Quick Dad, go to Pur- vis! Why me? I ' m starving! Let ' s go eat. Dinner is wonderful. Maybe the night won ' t be a disaster after all.

SMILING WITH THE satisfaction of success- fully completing high school are class offi- cers Sue Holt, Craig Darnell, Cindy Cunning- ham. First four-year class graduates With a density of tears and a scar- city of much needed bobby pins the Class of 77 finally made it. On May 25 at 6:45 p.m. the Fort Wayne Memorial Coliseum, hot and muggy as usual at graduation time, began filling up with 230 nervous seniors, an abundance of proud par- ents, relatives and friends. Twelve years of hard work and good times had finally paid off for most of the senior class, the first freshman class in the high school and the last class to graduate from the old " doghouse " at 900 Prospect Avenue. When the last cap had been prop- erly placed on the head with the aid of Ms. Carolyn Glossenger, whom most tried to avoid for fear of look- ing " queer " with their caps set upright, and the last yellow rose had been passed out, the band began playing the traditional processional — " Pomp and Circumstance " . Feeling sad, happy, nervous and sure that they would never make it through the ceremony without los- ing their hats, the senior class marched into the center arena area in rows of three ' s. After sitting through several speakers, two choir selections and a band piece, Mr. Paul Coeglein, prin- cipal, presented the class, and the diplomas, hopefully signed, were distributed. " Please stand for the turning of the tassles, " choked a tearful Sue Holt as the 19-77 seniors became graduates. As the senior class, together for the last time, left the Coliseum their faces displayed smiles, tears and mixed emotions. When the last tear had been shed and last good-bye was bid, the young adults set out in the world to seek a week full of what seemed like endless parties. 34 — Graduation DELIVERING HIS SPEECH on " Excellence or Mediocracy " is guest speaker Mr. Ron Hof- fer.

INDIANA ' S OWN ROCK star, Rick Der- ringer, performs with his band prior to Bos- ton ' s performance. Rock concerts are more popular with today ' s youth than ever before. During the 1976-77 school year, Fort Wayne Memorial Coliseum pre- sented several outstanding concerts to the surrounding area. Croups such as Kiss, Foghat, Yes, ZZ Top, Boston, Blue Oyster Cult, Black Oak Arkansas, Kansas, Black Sabbath, as well as rockers Ted Nuggent and Rick Derringer revealed their differ- ent styles of performing rock n ' roll to sold out Coliseum audiences. Kiss displayed a stage show titled " Destroyer " created from the album of the same name. " Destroyer " was rated the top live show of 1976. Yes and Blue Oyster Cult both used laser lights for the highlight of their stage shows. Different groups develop different stage shows, to perform rock n ' roll the best way they can. Needless to say, it was a very exciting year for concerts. A year that will not be forgotten. THE NEW ELECTRONIC rock group of Bos- ton, with bassists Fran Sheehan, lead vocalist Brad Delp, and guitarist Barry Goudrea, put on an all out effort to please the capacity crowd.

No member of New Haven will ever forget the 1977 Vic the Bulldog. Mark Lee gave the school mascot a whole new image. Who else would make the referee wait until a cheer was finished? Who else would pro- vide half-time entertainment by doing the bump with the opposing mascot? Nobody but Mark Lee had the nerve to display his body lan- guage. The gym that has served teams and fans so well over the past forty years was officially bid farewell. There was a flood of tears as many athletics took a final glance around the doghouse. As of this writing the spring sports are still in progress. Baseball looks promising, and Mike Sickafoose has vowed to win the state shot-put rib- bon. The last seconds on the clock have finally run out. For the seniors there are no more clocks, no more scores, no more baskets, pins, touchdowns and no more homer- uns. Only those precious memories, which will always have a special meaning. " 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 . . . " New Haven fans remained loyal clear down to the final seconds of every sports event. The athletic teams were given full support from an abundance of fans, young and old. Even though the football team suffered a winless season, the sta- dium was always filled every week- end. No one ever left a game mum- bling, " I knew we would lose! " Instead students marched proudly to the packed parking lot saying, " We ' ll get ' em next time! " However, we never got ' em. The girls proved their success as they over powered a number of rated volleyball teams. Tennis for guys was added to the curriculum, and the cross-country men ran cir- cles around most city school teams. Basketball, our number one spec- tator sport, managed to excite a few, while disappointing a great number of others. However, the ever-so- famous New Haven doghouse held hundreds of fans, who were fasci- nated by our Mr. Basketball, Mike Sickafoose. fl CO Q CO CO T O CO D Q. a a o. o Q CO o CO Sports ' division — 39 The Cross Country team had a fairly successful season this year.

" " Highpoints of the season were the fifth place finish in the South Side Invitational in which three of the teams that finished ahead of us eventually advanced to regionals, and the Bellmont-Concordia meet where we won our first three-way meet in three years.

Crosscountry — 41 gridders 0-10 J 03 a U This year ' s Varsity Bulldog team had many obstacles in their path through the season; the biggest being inexperience with only four returning lettermen and only 10 sen- iors on the team. Many times the coaches had to go with younger and smaller juniors and sophomores. Starting the season out on the wrong foot with a 55-0 loss to one time state-ranked Carroll, the Bull- dogs never seemed to catch up with the opposite team as they were shut-out six out of their 10 games. Homecoming proved to be no exception as the fired-up gridders were shut-out 35-0 by a very fine Winchester team. Senior co-captains this- year were Mark Hevel and Mark Hellinger. Next year ' s team should make a complete turn around from this year ' s record as the team will have approximately 17 lettermen return- ing.

Sophomore Scott Hevel was voted by his teammates as most valuable player. Sophomore Chris Taylor was voted the best offen- sive lineman. Sophomore Terry Smith received best defensive lineman.

When asked about this year ' s wrestling team and its success, sen- ior co-captain Keith Atteberry said " We really looked good in the beginning of the season, and I really thought we could win the confer- ence title, but Bellmont proved to be an obstacle that couldn ' t be over- come. " Senior co-captain Mike Davis commented on the season. " Look- ing back on the season I ' d have to say that two of our biggest assets were a good winning attitude and the spirit of friendship. Coach Hos- tetler was a big help to everyone and I think he is one of the best coaches in the area. " Junior Jeff Schultz summed it up by saying, " We had a good team and a good season, and we worked hard to get where we did. We will lose only three seniors and although they will be hard to replace, I think we are going to be the best wrestling- team New Haven has ever seen. " Wrestlerettes — 49 JV grapplers gain experience D Despite having a losing season, the youthful JV wrestlers gained a lot of experience. Coach Neitert did a fine job working with the 13 fresh- men, five sophomores, and two jun- iors. Of the freshmen, six wrestled regularly. In the 105 pound class, Richard Bugher had a 12-4-0 record; and Tom Leazotte reported a 13-3-0 record. One reason for the losing season was because the team had no 155 and 187 pound wrestlers. Overall Coach Neitert said " the team was very good despite having a young team. " He said the experience will pay off when the younger men move up to the varsity. The only injury of the year came to Mike Shearer who dislocated his right shoulder. The three wins were against Nor- throp— 27-21, South Side— 44-9, and Elmhurst— 42-21. Overall the team did a good job operating with mostly freshmen. FRESHMAN TOM LEAZOTTE works vigor- ously to keep a tight hold on his opponent. Tom sported a 12-3 record for the year.

Sporting the only winning record of the combined fall sports, Girl ' s Volley- ball had a highly successful season. With spirits high, the Lady Bulldogs entered the NEIAC Tourney determined to come out winners. And winners they were placing second to Bellmont ' s first. The only real disappointment to the majority of the players seemed to be losing the Dekalb Tournament. The girls placed third, losing to the host team in two games. Only five team members graduated, meaning 14 experienced spikers will be returning. The girls worked as a team and displayed excellent ability and potential. The varsity Bulldogs achieved a tre- mendous 8-4 record during regular sea- son play. Only Wayne, Leo, Concordia and Homestead managed to bump off New Haven. Their overall record was 12-6. Hindered by only one injury, the Jun- ior Varsity did not let it stop them as they displayed a rewarding 7-1 record. Concordia was the only powerhouse to overpower the talented team. The only disappointment was losing their captain junior Amy Haus. A broken ankle stop- ped Amy midway through the season. At the post season banquet, captain senior, Karen Klotz and freshman Melea Shaffer walked away with well-deserved trophies. MVP went to Karen for the second consecutive year. Best spiker and best server were proudly rewarded to Melea. V. SETTING THE BALE up for another hard spike is captain senior, Karen Klotz.

However, the two wins against Woodlan and Bishop Luers were results of close games. The junior Varsity, however, had quite a different story. The girls coached themselves to an 8-4 record. Junior Becky Becker led her team to several close game wins, scoring a game high of 12 points against Columbia City. Male cheerleaders, selected espe- cially for girls ' basketball, attracted several new fans each game.

I Toose ' breaks scoring record j It was a long season this year for the Varsity Basketball squad as they compiled a 7-14 record. However, five games were lost by only one point. The biggest problem that Coach Hans ' Bulldogs had was the lack of team unity. As the saying goes, " a team that plays together wins together, " and the varsity squad proved that statement true. Midw ay through the season they stopped playing together, and midway through the season they stopped winning. The team dished out several upsets during regular season play. The first came as they dumped Dekalb which was rated in the state. They also waved farewell to ACAC champs, Carroll, in an overtime game at the Charger ' s gym. How- ever, Carroll sought revenge as they shattered New Haven ' s hopes of capturing their first sectional title. The Bulldog ' s came back from an 18 point downfall to within one. Unfortunately, time ran out and the Chargers walked away with a 66-65 win. Games were not the only losses suffered by the team.

The pups clawed and scraped back in the sec- ond half but ended up short two with a 38-40 final score. Things were just a little different at Carroll as the pups were down 15 and fought back to walk away with a victory of 40-37.

IV basketball — 61 f Problems plague freshmen J r First year coach Don Huml had three problems this year with his freshmen roundballers. One being size, as once again the bulldogs were not blessed with a tall team. The second problem was practice since the Varsity and the J.V. had the gym until six o ' clock at night. They had to practice early in the morning from six to a quarter of eight. For many it would have been easier to stay in bed then to get up and go to practice. The third problem was team play as it took a few games for the fresh- men to get use to each others ' play but once they did get use to each other they proved they could beat RANDY CUENIN FASTBREAKS down court for two points against Luers.

They were also incon- sistent as a few days later they would be beaten by twenty points. Although their record (4-10) didn ' t show it they proved they could play with a lot of heart as many times they would be down by as much as 15 points and still try for a victory. The team suffered in both the offensive and defensive ends of the game. They averaged on the offen- sive end scoring 36 points per game while giving up on the defensive end 46 points per game. Many gained valuable experience as each man averaged an appearance in ten games, which should come in handy next year on the J.V. .

WITH TOTAL CONCENTRATION on her optional balance beam routine, Julie Eiden manages to maintain a faultess performance. The 1977 team, with new Coach Jody Miller, compiled the first win- ning season for any gymnastic team at New Haven. Their 8-4 record proved the amount of talent availa- ble. All the girls will return next year, as Dawn Gibson is the only senior. The team placed five well- thought-of girls on the All Confer- ence Team. Four sophomores, Laura Hathaway, Amy Roberts, Marina Hechler and Linda Myers, along with senior Dawn Gibson went to Sectionals. Dawn Gibson was the leading scorer in the NclAC Conference. She accumulated a four year total of 760 points and 90 ribbons won in com- petition. When asked about her team, Coach Jody Miller replied, " When my girls left a gym, everybody remembered the ' Purple ' ! " DISCUSSING THE STRATEGY of the game are Senior Mark Hevel and Sophomore Mark Van Driessche, while Junior Rick Stevens looks on. The baseball team got off to a slow start as they lost five games of the season before defeating Snider, 7-3. After losing a close game to a very tough Northrop team, the New Haven baseball squad won its first game of the season in a double- header against Snider. In the game played at Northrop the Bulldogs looked very tough against the Fort Wayne powerhouse as they came from behind to tie the score at five a piece going into the last inning. The New Haven squad couldn ' t manage to score a run in their half of the frame which gave way to the Bruins to score the win- ning run in the bottom of the sev- enth. Pitching a good game for the Bulldogs was sophomore, Scott Hevel as he went the full seven innings. On a hot Saturday afternoon, in the doubleheader against Snider, the Bulldogs got blown off the field in the first game by a score of 11-1, but in the second game showed the Panthers how New Haven could play baseball and came up with their first win of the season by a score of 7-3. Playing their first conference game, the Bulldogs lost a very close contest to Garrett by a score of 4-3. In other games they lost 15-3 to Heritage, 4-2 to Angola, which was a conference game and to Norwell 7- 5. The squad defeated Snider, Bell- mont, South Adams and Northfield.

The female athletes once again proved their dominance in the field of winning. Although the girls ' ten- nis team did not have a .500 season, they weren ' t far from it with a 5-7 record. Pam Sickafoose led the team as the number one singles player. Sen- ior Sue Holt followed closely behind in the number two position and third, fourth and fifth place singles went to Barb Kiebel, Lita Beemer and Cathy Sickafoose respectively. Karen Klotz and Norene Jones led the doubles teams as the number one pair, and the Kelly Lothamer, Teri Fritcha duo did an excellent job at the number two spot. 70 — Girls ' tennis • N. m % Girls swing into Spring and love it USING A BACKHAND shot, junior Pam Sic- kafoose returns a volley during warm-up. The entire team placed fourth in the NEIC Tennis Tournament, and the number one doubles team of Karen Klotz and Norene )ones placed third. The two girls were also the only team members to place in Sectionals where they once again received third place. Losing only three seniors, the girls have already agreed to come up with a winning record next year. " The girls and our coach made it a super senior season, " commented captain Sue Holt, who will greatly miss playing next year. BITING HER LIP seems to help Sue Holt ' s backhand. Girls ' tennis — 71 Bulldogs capture NEIAC Leading the linksmen this year was captain Keith Prine and junior Dave Blumenherst. The five member team also consisted of junior Steve Harris and sophomores Ron Forks and Mike Farrell. " Beating Summit City Athletic Conference champions Bishop Dwenger by one stroke was the best duel match of the year, " com- mented Coach Frank Clark. The linksmen edged out Dekalb and Homestead in the NEIAC match to capture the championship. Dave Blumenherst shot a 78 at the sec- tional for the lowest score of all the Bulldog linksmen. Keith Prine was the only member of the squad to get a hole in one. With four returning lettermen, Coach Clark is looking for another good team next year.

Trackmen run into good season ' It was agreed upon by all that the track team was definitely an improvement from that of past years. They ended their season with a 5-9 record, placing second in several three way meets. They fin- ished seventh in the sectionals, third in the NEIC conference meet and third in the New Haven Relays. Two members of the team contin- ued to excel in the sport although the season ended after sectionals for the other track members, junior Jeff Brockman placed fourth in section- als with a throw of 143 feet in the discus event. This was good enough to qualify him for the Regionals which were held at Wayne High School. Mike Sickafoose threw the shot-put 56 ' 9 ' 2 " to place first in the sectionals and accompany Jeff to the Regionals. Jeff placed sixth at Wayne with a heave of 158 feet. Although this was his best throw of the year it did not qualify him for the State meet. A shot-put heave of 57 ' 9 " won Mike Sickafoose first in the Regional meet and an advance- ment to the State meet at North Central High School in Indianapolis. Unfortunately he picked June 5 to have an off day and placed seventh. Earlier in the season Mike broke the school discus record with a throw of 153 ' 1 " .

A special award was given this year in memory of Leland Atteberry, the 1975 captain. It was presented to senior member Pat Beuchel. Every year a boner award is given to the member who pulled the most stupid stunt during the season. This year the not-so-lucky guy was Mike Crisler. He fell down the stairs at Concordia ' s stadium and sprained his ankle. The Most Valuable Track- man award was presented to a deserving Mike Sickafoose and Kenny Knepp was selected as the 1978 captain. The team was coached by Mr. Pat Monoghan, Mr. Bill Parman, Mr. Sam Mclntuff and Mr. Mulligan. The cap- tain was Mike Sickafoose, Pat Beu- chel was a squad leader for the dis- tance runners and Kenny Knepp kept track of the hurdlers and sprint- ers.

Although the two groups are segregated, FCA for- merly only reached out to male ath- letes. As you journeyed through the past year organizations became big- ger and better. Membership in some organizations almost doubled. Members became more involved as witnessed by club participation at Sadie Hawkins. Every year organizations have a yearly initiation. Old members make new initiates do miserable things. They found they had to brush each other ' s teeth with peanut butter while blindfolded. They also received cream pies in the face and got water balloons broken over their heads. When the end rolls around the organizations hold their annual banquets to acknowledge outstand- ing members and new officers.

' , my deadline can ' t be today! " " I need some pictures. " " Somebody please help me think of a headline! " " I lost my copy that was due four days ago! " These were a few of the fre- quently heard screams that ech- oed through room 36. Deadlines came and went. Some were made and most were made and some were missed. F ' s were given, tears flowed and the year promised to be a long one. Editor Diane Ocock decided being President of the United States might be eas- ier than putting together volume 38 of the MIRAGE. Right when things began look- ing really hopeless, adviser Mrs. lean Parrish came up with the perfect solution for completing the yearbook on time. When all else failed, she decided having a baby in July would definitely speed up progress. As the year finally got under way, things began to run smoothly. Each month the staff celebrated the birthdays of their co-workers. Cakes and treats were enjoyed by everyone. At Christmas each member of staff brought in " White Elephant " gifts. Michele Simon received the most wanted present as she chose a book of lifesavers. Brian Loth- amer, however, was not quite as fortunate. His empty Renuzit con- tainer was quickly filed in the wastebasket, along with quite a few other zonk gifts. Although the staff consisted mainly of inexperienced students, layouts and copy turned out quite well. Despite the hassles and fre- quent disagreements, pages were completed faster than last year. By the end of March, 150 of the 200 pages had already reached the publisher.

This year, the play was " The High Chairs " a comedy-drama. The cast consisted of Amy Coffman, Fred Tate, Laura Coffman, Dave Bassett, and Sue Holt with two walk-on roles played by Teresa Snyder and Ted Wilson. Rehearsals for the production started at the end of January four nights a week (sometimes five) and continued until opening night, March 12. There were several critic and dress rehearsals to shape the play. The rest of Masque Gavel ' s 26 members had plenty to do organiz- ing the many props, business, sound, lighting and helping Mr. Ger- ald Isch construct the stage. Besides the two-act, M G also had two one-act comedies available. The new members are cast into the one-acts. More experienced mem- bers act as student directors. This year, the one-acts were " Couldn ' t I Kiss You Goodnight? " with Jane Brand, Marc Todd, Ellen Wallace, Dave Bassett, and Kathy Lopshire and " Three ' s a Crowd " with Karon Peaks, Allen Sudmann, Teresa Sny- der, Ricky Worman, and Fred Tate. The one-acts were presented to the school body and area nursing homes. Meeting every first and third Tuesday of every month at 7:15 a.m., members had to be wide awake to attend to all business. Meetings usu- ally lasted 30-35 minutes. Masque and Gavel had two ban- quets, a ticket banquet and the annual spring banquet. The Ticket Banquet was held at the Heritage House. The number of tickets a member sells determines how much he pays for his meal — six top sales- men received free dinners. The annual Spring banquet was held at the Lucky Steer Steak House in New Haven. All members and alumnus are invited to attend. All initiated members perform what- ever the initiation committee plans.

Band camp — the place where most football halftime shows and the NISBOVA marching contest show are put together. Many things come to mind when those two words are said: initiation, marching and more marching, the " food " , swimming, boating, learning, music, arch to knee, mosquitoes, reveille and flash- lights burning through the night. A day at band camp starts at 5:15. Reveille is played through a loud speaker while throughout the camp lights are clicked on, eyes are rubbed, and campers are throwing on their clothes for the rush to the bathrooms. One half hour later the band assembles on the marching field for drills and latecomers are issued pushups. Eight a.m. breakfast, consists of eggs, cereal, cold toast, warm milk and pancakes — strictly survival fare. After breakfast is a break to change clothes and clean up the cabins for inspection. The occu- pants who have the worst score have to stay after lunch and din- ner for more clean up. Back to the field for another hour and a half for marching practice this time with instruments. Many college students come to lead each sec- tion and also act as counselors. While performers learn music , the Highlights with tired, aching feet are out practicing on the field. Following lunch, many times the full band meets on the hill overlooking the lake for more practice. At least two and a half hours of free time is given so campers can swim, sleep, boat, eat, play tennis, or jump on the trampolines. Five o ' clock brings dinner and anx- iously awaited mail, but there ' s a price to pay! People who receive three letters throughout the week have to sing a song in front of the rest of the band. The last practice follows dinner until dusk. The entertainment for the evening might be initiation, a pizza party, trivia bowl, stunt night or films.

We are 1 ' Sweepstakes won by NHHS The Bulldog Band participates in many things during the summer. Every Tuesday and Thursday nights the town of New Have n is enter- tained by the band marching up and down Park Avenue. These practices get the band ready for the various parades it participates in. The ' 76 schedule included Woodburn Days ' Parade, the Bicentennial Parade on July 4, and the annual Three Rivers Parade where the Bulldog Band won first place and received $500! A happy surprise since this was the first year that prize money was given. The last parade of the sum- mer was our own New Haven Days. All the hours of practicing, march- ing, and drilling paid off again this year as the band took the sweep- stakes trophy in class B at the NIS- BOVA Marching Contest for the sec- ond year in a row. At Concord High School in Elkart, The Bulldog Band competed against 14 other bands and gained the highest overall score in marching. After Homecoming, which is the band ' s last parade, the work isn ' t over. The band is split into three groups for concert season. The band plays for pep sessions and games, they work up songs for Christmas and spring concerts and prepare to enter contest in April.

The New Haven Bulldog Band came into existence in 1940, and by 1944 the concert band consisted of 47 members. In 1947 the con- cert band had grown to 48 mem- bers, but the marching band was 48 strong with eight majorettes and one drum major. Presently the marching Bulldog band has approximately 180 members. Through the years the goal of each band, whether 47 small or 180 large, has to do its best to turn the hours of drills and practice in to the best entertainment at NHHS.

This year ' s officers were: Kim Notstine, president; Becky Aurand, vice-president; Brad Royal, trea- surer; Carla McKeeman, secretary. A canoe trip to Pigeon River was the highlight of the year for Science Club. Another event was a science trick program for the elementary school. The program showed the children the difference between chemical and physical sciences. Also, the club judged a Science Fair at St. lohn ' s in Fort Wayne.

Again this year, Stu- dent Congress organized the Home- coming Parade and Dance also. For the second consecutive year, they presented the Sweetheart Dance. This year, the dance was person-ask- person instead of girl-ask-guy. Other activities sponsored by Stu- dent Congress included Sadie Haw- kins, open activity contests, and var- ious dances throughout the school year. Student Congress also organized Student-Teacher Breakfasts. These Breakfasts took place once every two months. All students were invited to come and eat breakfast while discussing different topics with teachers. Thursday, March 26, a farewell ceremony to the old gym was pro- duced by the Student Congress. The ceremony included a modeling of old cheerleader ' s and basketball player ' s uniforms, and a line-up of the first team to ever play in the Bulldog ' s gym. After nine years, Ms. Anita Kinzie will no longer be Student Congress ' advisor. To end the year, Student Congress gave awards to various members of the organization at the annual ban- quet at Three Kings in Hoagland.

It ' s done on time! " " Where ' s a photographer when you need one? " " The headliner ' s broke! " " My story ' s gone! " " Helllppp!! " Every year it happens and this year is no exception for THE HERALD staff. Publishing a newspaper is not as easy as it seems, and cries of despair as well as satisfaction could be heard coming from members of the staff. The traditional missing of dead- lines proved to be the biggest prob- lem, as did the fact that several times photographers failed to be on- the-scene. But the staff pulled through despite late hours, cold meals and missing copy. More than half the staff was put in detention one day for leaving class early to grab some munchies, and took their punishment in room 36 after school, writing headlines. At the Christmas party the group exchanged " white elephant " gifts and ate a lunch brought by staff members. Adviser Mrs. Jean Parrish intro- duced birthday parties for staff members which proved to be quite tasty. Editor-in-chief Tim Denney (Argos) contributed rock concert reviews and controversial editorials. Head Photographer Scott De- Lucenay and his staff produced good photos, but had a few prob- lems meeting deadlines. News edi- tor Molly Reddin kept her public informed by digging for the essen- tial facts, feature editor, Patti Con- roy, gave bi-weekly advice in her column titled " Converse with Con. " Advertising manager Mark Hel- linger increased the amount of sub- scriptions six times this year. PATH CONROY DISCUSSES wih Mrs. Jean Parrish the possibilities of different articles lobe used in the HERALD. SENIOR KEITH ATTEBERRY looks over the justo-type machine to make sure the type is justified. KEEPING WARM WAS one of the biggest assignments for the HERALD staff as shown by sophomore Kurk Swank, seated on the heater. ONE OF THE jobs of editor Tim Denney is to read all articles written and to chose the best for print. HERALD — 111 Journalism students travel to Chicago Tribune Classes — that ' s what school is all about when you are Just Passing Through. There are all sorts of classes, classes that must be passed to graduate, or classes for required majors and minors and just the fun classes that are taken to fill your schedule. Do you remember these? Do you remember in some classes receiving endless homework? All classes varied in scheduled activities. These activities ranged from dissecting frogs in biology to taking a bank field trip in record- keeping; from taking a field trip to the court house in sociology to reliving a trial in Business Law; frt m cooking a full course meal to sewing a coat. The list could go on and on. Can you remember seeing some students mess around, while you worked to get an assignment in on time? Remember daydreaming in your most dreaded class? Sometimes getting caught and sometimes not. And finally when 3:20 p.m. rolled around you would run to your bus, car, or just out the doors to walk home, not caring that you would have to come back in 17 hours or on Monday morning.

Useful ideas learned in these courses can be applied to everyday life, and can also save money in later years. Woods class for example, " gives the student the knowledge to judge the quality of furniture he buys or to make his own, " according to junior Jeff Schultz. Industrial Arts also offers the stu- dent a way to express his ideas and creativity, junior Tim Cremaux took Architectural Drawing because he likes to draw and use his imagina- tion. Mr. Donald Stewart feels that " one of the main objectives of Industrial Arts is to acquaint the stu- dent with the tools involved with the class and how to use them. " A project is usually assigned to put what is taught into practice. Activities ranged from French -i SOPHOMORE LARRY NEHER dons a mous- tache for the French class Mardi Cras, Feb 25. The annual event was held in the cafete- puppet shows to a German field trip to Frankenmuth, Ml in the foreign languages department. Spanish classes sampled Mexican cooking and saw )ose Greco demonstrate flamenco dancing while German classes did skits which were shown on cable TV. Asked why she was taking a for- eign language junior Debby Cock- lin, a Spanish student, replied, " I wanted to learn about another peo- ple and language. " One thing she didn ' t like about the course was that in three years she has had four dif- ferent teachers. junior Troy Zimmerman said, " German is a lot of work but the knowledge of the German people, their culture and how they affect the U.S. will be useful " while Debby Cocklin decided that if she ever vis- ited a Spanish-speaking country what she had learned would be helpful. 7) SOPHOMORE |OHN THORP and junior Kevin Payne do their German skit which was broadcast on Cable TV.

Physical education gives fun and exercise Providing a way to forget some of the problems and frustrations of a long day in class, Physical Education was a welcome break for most Freshmen. It also helped provide the exercise one needs to keep healthy, and builds better coordination. Sports such as soccer and softball played during the spring and fall, to basketball and gymnastics give a change of pace to an otherwise rou- tine day. Freshmen Jim Fitzgerald said he " liked the warball best and running the physical fitness test to see how well I could do. " This was the last year that the boys ' and girls ' classes were held in separate gyms. The new gym is large enough to hold both classes at one time. FRESHMAN BELINDA WATSON moves the ball downcourt as she is guarded by fresh- man Debbie Heiber. FRESHMAN KEITH KINNEY does a flip off the mini-tramp. Spotting for him is freshman Bob Malott.

TRYING TO FIGURE out an algebra problem freshman Gary Miller glances up at Mr. Sam Mclnturff ' s example on the board. Having a wide variety of subjects, the Science Department usually offers something for everyone. Sen- ior Ron Roberts took chemistry because " it will be helpful to know some basics when I go to college. " Science students were kept busy with projects, labs, dissections and leaf collections. Some participated in extracurricular activities such as judging at an elementary school sci- ence fair. Students in the Math Department struggled through algebraic equa- tions, theorems, tangents and secants with some people wonder- ing why they ever signed up for the class. Others, like junior Lori Place took math because they like it. " Even though it ' s hard it ' s still fun to figure out problems, " she said. Projects, problems keep students busy ; JUNIOR BECKY BECKER cleans a test tube she will use in a basic chemistry lab involv- ing acids.

Trying to give the student a better understanding of our past and pres- ent societies, the Social Studies Department employed several methods of teaching to accomplish this. In sociology, students were often told to put themselves in a certain situation and tell what whey think their reaction would be. In Mr. Tom Lamb ' s U.S. History classes one might find a heated debate going on over whether to fight the War of 1812 or a trial to see who was right or wrong in the Revo- lutionary War. One of the highlights of the year was a trip to Washington D.C. by U.S. History students. Reading novels and constructing posters about them in Ms. Carol Ryan ' s ninth grade literature classes were among the activities in the English Department. Most students took an English course to prepare for college or just to be able to write correctly. Junior Bret Hahn agreed by stating " my knowledge of gram- mar will be useful in the written work I will have to do in college.

English — 121 Whether checking out a book for a report or just lounging in the beanbag chairs, one can almost always find the IMC to be a very useful part of school. But books and beanbag chairs are not the only thing the IMC provides. Instruc- tional aids and supplies, such as films and tapes, help some teachers get their point across. Students can easily buy books for literature classes instead of searching through a bookstore and paying a higher price. The IMC also gets the projec- tors, tape recorders and video-tape machines we use every day to the people who need them. Students can probably use their imagination more in art than in any other class. They have gotten the chance to show off their work as some of their better pieces have been displayed at the East Allen County Administration building. Music students also get to show what the y have learned in the way of concerts, contests and plays. In doing so the music department has developed a fine reputation that is recognized throughout the state.

Other business classes were also doing things besides classwork. Trips to grocery stores to compare prices gave students in consumer education a better " nderstanding of what to buy, how much and where. Field trips to apartments and mobile home dealerships gave students an idea of where they might want to live and how much it would cost. The business department has also adopted a new vocational program where students do office work for local businesses. Although they do not have many field trips or outside activities, stu- dents in home economics are kept busy with such things as planning their future home or completing sewing projects. In family life, mar- ried couples came in and discussed what married life means to them. Sewing classes worked on projects that would not only help them learn new techniques but would also be useful to them when they were fin- ished. 124 — Business PUTTING TOGETHER A mock wedding gave Mrs. Margaret Hunter ' s guest a chance to show her family life class what goes into a real wedding. MR. TREVOR DAVIS of Top Hat Tuxedos uses senior Mark Hevel ' s waist to demon- strate how to get the proper measurements for a tuxedo in family life class.

AFTER BEING HITCHED by Marryin ' Sam at Sadie Hawkins, junior Robin Burgette and her date Barry Sturgill look over their mar- riage license. DRESSING-UP LIKE the fifty ' s is senior Kelly Potter. Seniors reserved days this year to dress-up as different things. By lust Passing through the past year, everyone could be seen get- ting involved in many things. The most exciting thing that was done this year was the class competition. Student Congress thought it would be great to have something to do during open activity periods. So after thinking for about three weeks they thought of having class compe- titions. Faculty was also involved in the class competition. Some of the events were tug of war, junior Olym- pics, basketball, and volleyball. Then we did the traditional deco- rating of sectional and homecoming halls. It seems like seniors were the most talented in this area all year, for they won the competition both times. 126 — Division in class competition HELPING WITH THE scoring, Mr. Dennis lohnson gets involved with class competi- tion. FINDING IT WARM in room 36, seniors Lori Lines and Diane Ocock and junior Leslie Weikel take refuge in the hall to work on yearbook layouts. GETTING HER ARMS just right, Mr. Tom Walker prepares freshman Vickie Parker for her class picture. Remember all the things we did during spirit week. Dressing down as well as dressing up, on our hats off day, and on our Bulldog day the guys couldn ' t talk to girls unless they wanted to lose their Bulldog. Awards were given for the best dressed on the certain day that it was. Division — 127 Seniors ' float ' down the LAURIE K.

St. Meyers, R. L. Shoda, Sue Claypool, Cathy Waldron, Kevin Rinehart, Jon Lane, Ken Theisen and Bob Theurer. They were just passin ' through, but they sure left their mark. As a result of a lot of hard work, they received first place on their Homecoming float. First place was also achieved for sectional hall. To raise money, they sponsored a Turkey Raffle. October 29, April 1, and March 15, were days that the seniors set them- selves apart from underclassmen. Halloween dress-ups were seen throughout school Friday, October 29. April Fools Day the seniors dressed up as fifties. Approximately 20 alarm clocks were planted in senior ' s lockers on March 15 at 8:30 a.m. To the seniors dismay, the prank was not a success because the clocks were confiscated by Mr. Sumpter and Mrs. Ahlers- meyer. One of the last senior shin-digs was the senior dinner-dance at Goe- glein ' s Barn. Awards were given and the Band BRUSHFIRE, played. THE OFFICERS FOR the senior class are Cindy Cunningham, secretary; Linda Forsyth, treasurer; Craig Darnell, vice-president; Sue Holt, president. Seniors — 143 E o C7 D O U O E o to Who but the class of 78 would mention the word prom at the beginning of the school year. " Please pay your dues to any of the junior class officers. They will be sit- ting in the back of the cafeteria dur- ing all lunch periods. Don ' t plan on going, unl ess you pay, " read the announcements every morning. The prom was at the I.U.-P.U. Ball Room April 30. The pastel colors that enlightened the prom were: baby blue, pink, yellow, light green and lavender. The theme song that the classmates picked was, " I Need You " by America. Other than dues to help with the prom funds, " Shamrock Greetings " were sold for St. Patrick ' s Day. Because of the snow blizzard, other plans were canceled. The juniors started the year out on a good foot. In the Homecoming Parade, their float received second place; with versatility they won the relay race of the class competition; and placed third in sectional hall. Outstanding spirit during the first pep session was contributed by the juniors who won the " Spirit Stick " . A TRIBUTE TO HOWARD SCHNUTH by M. Roberts Oh, no, Howard, not reveille at 3 a.m.!

" Doing it in the dirt " is his kind of thing. Walking into the school Septem- ber 1, one could feel the tension and anxieties building up, as new fresh- men came in. Most of them were unsure of where they were going, and what they were doing. After a few weeks, though, everything started falling into a routine. Election of officers was the first major business of the class of 80. Brian Felton was elected president, with Marc Todd as vice-president. D ' Ann Jones and Mike Gerke were elected secretary and treasurer respectively. Homecoming and Sectional Halls were new for the freshmen. Receiv- ing honorable mention in each competition, the class vowed to do better next year. Class competition proved only to remind them that they were inexpe- rienced. Losing in all competition except the tricycle races, and the volleyball competition, the fresh- men came in fifth place with a score of 18. More important than the class itself are the individuals which make up the class of 1980. Each one has a special talent or ability in which he can improve and expand. Kathy Dize has excelled in swim- ming. Being on the New Haven Swim Team for four years, her main competition is the breast stroke. Leading the Bulldogs in cross country and track is Jim Fitzgerald. Running 500 miles the summer before the season started kept Jim in top physical form and ready for the autumn meets. Roller skating is the thing for Mike Kite. Skating since the age of four, he has been able to accomplish many feats in dance and speed. Scouting is where it ' s at for Doug King. Being in Boy Scouts for seven years Doug has been able to earn the Eagle Scout Award. It-is the high- est honor for a scout. The class of 1980 is trying to excel in sports, academics, or the arts, and each trying to reach the top.

" Up until the day Assistant Prin- cipal Bernard MacKenzie called me to his office the last thing in the world I wanted to be was a teacher. As a junior in high school I knew all teachers had to be weird. I couldn ' t imagine them having families, eat- ing, and all the other pleasantries of life. Certainly a teacher had to be born with a book in his hand and a " Shhhhh " on his lips. I had none of these qualifications. At least I didn ' t think so. Mr. MacKenzie convinced me that I should major in education and not in Liberal Arts. I laughed a lot at first, but after throwing the idea around for a few days and weighing what Mr. MacKenzie had to say — and challenging the rea- sons he gave me for becoming a teacher, I enrolled at Ball State. " — Mrs. LuAnn Beaman " One time I heard Home Ec teachers always got married and I guess I wanted to be a married lady! " — Mrs. Beulah Faulstick " The biggest influence on becoming a teacher was my " love " for all sports and athletics, plus the desire to work with others to help them excel in athletics. My desire for classroom teaching came ini- tially from wanting to coach; but because the jobs are both very compatible it is not hard to enjoy both occupations.

" My husband, the principal of Leo High School (who was not my hus- band at the time) called me to sub- stitute. I didn ' t think I wanted to teach even though I had my degree in education. But I took over the classes of the teacher who was ill for a week and just loved working with the kids. So I went back to school for my Master ' s degree, star ted teaching full time — and eventually married my principal! " — Mrs. Virginia Jones " Don Lemish, my high school journalism teacher and adviser, had the most influence on my decision to become a teacher. He took our own newspaper from the lowest rat- ing possible to a Pacemaker news- paper, the highest rating possible, in three years. He instilled in us good journalism ethics and inspired us to do our best as a staff member. " — Mrs. Jean Parrish " Father Patrick W. McElliot, my parish priest and catechism teacher in elementary and junior high. At an early age I was impressed by the dedication of the Priests and Sisters that taught school. Participation in sports was good for me and I still enjoy coaching for that reason.

My mother had taught a few years in a one-room school and she thought I should be a teacher and urged me to go to Ball State. It was good advice as I have enjoyed my profession very much. " — Mr. VerlOberlin " My Father. He came to this coun- try as a young man, because of the opportunities this country had to offer. Therefore, from the time we were of age to comprehend, we were reminded of the importance of an education. Fortunately, I enjoyed going to school from the moment I started kindergarten.

This difference is found in the faculty. They got involved in class competi- tion during open activity periods, doing skits at pep sessions and doing all the things during Home- coming Week that Student Congress planned for the school. Some teachers were even given nicknames to make it easier to be recognized by students. Mr. Norman Stephan received the nickname " Stormin Norman " by his Clerical Lab, Mrs. )ean Parrish received the names " Mom " and " Mrs. P. " by her publication staffs, Mrs. Barbara Alhersmeyer was known to some as " Mrs. A. " and an oldy but goody Mr. Joe Sumpter was known as " Smoky Joe " to almost the whole student body. Towards the end of the school year teachers were seen packing up school supplies and their own belongings for the big move to the new school. So next year teachers will start a new year in a new build- ing with new faces and maybe new nicknames. MR. TOM STUCKEY glances up from grading some papers to watch his study hall.

The gym, built in 1936, was the center of the Allen County Basketball Tourna- ment during the 1940 ' s and 50 ' s. One of the featured speakers that evening was Norm Ellenberger, for- mer New Haven coach and present head basketball coach at the Univer- sity of New Mexico. The present high school students were surprised that they were not the only ones who drank 3.2 beer in Ohio. But Mr. Ellenberger added, " The stuff you smoke now is better. " Members of the Student Con- gress, who hosted the event, pre- sented a fashion show depicting for- mer athletic attire. Mike Davis, Stu- dent Congress president, was fea- tured wearing a basketball uniform dating back to 1916. The band, an important part of the gym ' s past, performed with the pom pon girls. Both the 1936 team, the first ever to play in the " new " gym, and the present basketball team received a standing ovation as they stood on the floor for the last time. Another highlight of the evening was a slidesound program made by Mrs. LuAnn Beaman, Jenny DeVoe and )ammie Mann. It revealed some of the events that happened in the 40 year history of the building. A reception followed the festivi- ties. Displays outlined the perimeter of the gym which showed past tro- phies, uniforms and pictures. SENIOR MIKE DAVIS exhibits the 1916 bas- ketball uniform at the gym ceremony ' s fash- ion show. 196 — Gym ceremony GUESTS ARE SHOWN looking at the tro- phies and basketball team pictures of the past years. BAND TROPHIES WERE displayed. The tro- phies ranged from 1936 to 1976. DR. DARYL YOST was a guest speaker at the ceremony. He spoke on all the exciting things that happened during the past 40 years. Gym ceremony — 197 Memories of old school By coming to the end of this book, you just passed through another year of memories at New Haven. Memories of our Homecoming loss, sectional spirit being crumbled by a one point loss, closing ceremonies for the ' 47 gym, end of semester exams and the worry of whether or not you were going to get smoke- ups in your worst class. Seniors wondered whether they were going to graduate. Then it came; the last day of worry; and the last day of high school for those sen- iors who made it. The traditional senior skip day, May 5, was spent at Pokagon State Park. Only some of the seniors were gone. Others attended school as usual. Those that went returned; only to find out that they would have to come to school May 25 or not receive their diplomas at gradu- ation. Now at the end of the year; underclassmen say their good-byes, " see ya in three months, have a nice summer " while seniors said their goodbyes for good. Goodbyes were also said to the school by everyone. Next year everyone will be attend- ing the new building. Good-bye and good-luck!

Silent trees stood feebly beside our concrete paths. I once preyed upon their stoney faces and their gnarled branches. A summer breeze blew across our barren land and I heard them.
