We will even remember Larry Huff accompanying his senior English stu- dents to dinner and to Shakespeare ' s ' As You Like If at the Civic Theatre.

You ' d be doing a lot of that it you wanted to find a concert in Fort Wayne in the spring of 79. For several concerts the city police had cracked down on drugs and alcohol causing arrests and disturbances at concerts at the Coliseum. So instead of the promotion companies retaliating they just pulled out of Fort Wayne. Last summer the ice broke, officers and promoters agreed to meet each other half way. Concerts were back in Fort Wayne. The high school students from the New Haven area turned out in mass at each Coliseum concert. Kansas Styx played in the full, to packed crowds and standing ovations. But, when Kiss came through town controversy and drug busts lay in their path. Seventy-three concert goers were arrested for illegal possession on the night of the concert. Most were held in the city jail over night. In the morning a surprise greeted the impuned fans. Kiss came to jail and provided bail for all of the luckless citizens who were arrested at their concert. Foreigner winged their way on their promotional tour in the midwinter and had what some fans called a mediocre engagement. Mainly, this was attributed to the fact that their lastest album, ' Head Games, ' was less than satisfying. The Beach Boys appeared in late February. When the ticket sales were open many New Havenites said that they weren ' t interested in seeing them. But the day after the concert many professed to going to the concert after all and enjoying the Beach Boys performance. New Haven High students have rediscovered concerts and find them an interesting change of pace. Many who just went to their first concert just this year said that it would not be their last. Concert fans, like Keith DeLucenay (1 1 ). often buy souve- nirs at the concerts. 1 — Media ' Kramer vs. Kramer ' swept the academy awards. ' Star Trek ' grossed over 54 million because It was a cult movie. Screen gems It ' s a Friday night. Where are the students? Many are at parties, at worl ;, or at a game. The rest, who noisily munch popcorn and chew juju truits, are in tront ot the silver screen watching tor their favorite star. ' Amityville Horror ' and ' When A Stranger Calls ' haunted viewers with blood and suspense. ' Amityville ' received a three star rating, while ' Stranger ' was termed a failure. One movie that was more fun than scary was ' The Rocky Horror Picture Show. ' Rice, newspapers, hotdogs, and squirt guns were props brought to help make the movie a little more interesting. Dealing with the problems of child custody, ' Kramer vs. Kramer ' received an excellent rating. " It was great, I loved it. It should get an academy award, " said Suzi Fisher. ' Star Trek ' was a meager attempt to surpass the previous earnings of ' Star Wars. ' " I thought the movie could have been done in one hour instead of two, " said Beth Hull. ' The Jerk ' and ' Life of Brian ' received three star ratings. With comedy seeping from poor, these were very popular.

Horsing around, flying an airplane, taking pictures, music, writing, and making movies are a source of diversion for some faculty members. If they can ' t find their means of escape close by, several try to search for it through travel. It may be a big city or a small cabin and living like a hermit, but they bring peace to those people. " I like going home and seeing my children every day, " says Tom Lamb, history instructor. Students, however, find their methods of escape through different means. Some rollerskate, play musical instruments, goto movies, sit through plays at the Civic time after time, date, talk to friends, and yes, even smoke pot for their release from school pressures. " I just like listening to my stereo, " says Rick Norton. With the minds and bodies of students and teachers spending most of the day scholastically, most at least " minor " in some type of escape. School gets to everyone at times. Even when time is most precious, that assignment is due, or there is that deadline to meet, we still need to set some time aside to temporarily escape from the troubles of school life, or it will all catch up to us, one of these days.

Coming to the end of the race As I sat afid watched the fire burn, the flames as they rose and cracked over the wood, I began to think, who am I? Where am I going? Every senior at one time or another thinks about the final winding road, and probably feels as though it ' s the end. Someone once said, " What may seem to be the end is really a beginning. " May 21 , 1 980 may seem to be the end for many seniors. As they reflect over the past four years, they remember all those crazy times I the ball games, the parties, the dances, and all their truly wonderful friends whose everlasting friendships will never be forgotten. The tears will fall, for the class of 1 980 truly had a ' touch of class. ' And though they all will part, this really is a new beginning for each and everyone. Next fall, each person will be starting a new life. Some will start work while others will be off to college. Graduation is still a while off. But remember, this is the last year. Time cannot be captured in a bottle and stored on a shelf. For the only thing that can be saved are the memories. Lifestyes — 13 Art spcaftUM It likes you so you love it. (the low life and high times of John and Mary i an to.) Dedicated to the folks and village of New Haven, Indiana. I He saw her in the mirror: an extraordinary girl; He dared not to come near her, he feared her every curl. But he found he could befriend her could win her to his side. And for all the things he ' d spend on her She ' d take him for a ride. They never really cared about Or really even stared about The people they ' d become . . . They really only cared about And really only stared about The avoidable humdrum. So at the wedding no official: Money changed so superficial; Such an old, beleaguered ritual Went according to his plans. And at the wake where no one spoke. (The words had all gone up in smoke.) Hervery life waslikea joke: But death will never laugh II For it likes you so you like it: A weed the English never lit: The paper ' s rolled — you take a hit — And turn into yourself. It holds you like no body can: So much sweeter than a man It never tries to understand Just lets you have your way. Makes life without it hard to bear: You have to have it sit and stare — You climb the walls if it ' s not there; Makes other love seem old and stale. No reason In the world to quit Without it nothing seems to fit, Your other fun just orbits it One keeps it at all one cost! So John and Mary do a dance: Make it scary take a chance Fight a little laugh a lot — While their minds collapse and rot. For when it likes you must love it: A weed the English never lit; A lot like money if A lot like money; a lot like sex — A lying mirror if one reflects! All the time and space will end and kill But Mary ' s drug will keep her still! No matter who can give her reasons Her life can hold no sweeter season Her life affords no greater joy Than she has had with her boy . . . So it likes you — well you love it! The paper ' s rolled — you take your hit! You get your job — you do your bit: They ' ll bury you with your man! And at the wake no one will speal The tears will fall — the Poet Steve Nelson has written numerous poems about ttie life of students and teactiers, ttieir reiationstiips and downfalls. 1 4 Arts lid will creak — And as all the children take their peek Poor Mary ' s lost For it like her so she loved it A weed the English never lit A drink her mother never knew: A chance at living May blew away . . . Stephen Phillip Nelson Young actor I looked out on the ennpty seats where darkness is the light and the red velvet of lite is soft ash gray. I say my speech, throw high my laugh to the silent specters of applause. I stand at a curtain lowered for someone else and feel the splash of imaginary spotlights. I weep of death to unseen throngs and dance and sing for nonexistent cheers. I stand on stage, a ghost myself, the star within me not yet born, — Janet Kanable.

Art Department Head Arts— 15 riQtionQl cQp ule spcaftUM 16- No give all take Iran took 50 United States citizens hostage. The International Han ester strike took its time. The U.S.S.R. took Afghanistan. The U.S. took away the glory of the Olympics. President Carter took the primaries. And the OPEC countries took us for a ride. Taking is what truly characterized news year 79- ' 80. In a year of rising inflation and faltering public opinions our community held through some of the most devastating events in years. While Khoemini held the hostages and the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in their drive to the seas, we endured a Harvester strike. While blue collar workers at the plant built strike shacks at the main entrance to the plant, nervous white collar workers came in the back of the plant through sabotaged entrances. As strike pay ran out many of the strikers dug into their savings or looked for temporary jobs. In the worst of it, even the students of the strikers were reluctant to talk about the predicament. Another event that hit home more than most was the U.S. ' s decision to pull out of the Moscow summer National capsule Olympics. Many in the community felt that the U.S.S.R. ' s invasion of Afghanistan was unnecessary and so caused the boycott by the United States of the summer Olympics. Because of the Soviets ' action for the first time in 20 years the cold war was activited, along with patriotism, and threatened registration for the draft. But one thing seemed to bother the more conscientious! What will happen to the athletes who trained so long for the Olympics now that it has all been taken away? The news that affected the teenager the most was the triple digit gas prices in the course of six months: The price of gas went up 50 cents leaving many students out in the cold or on a bus. In a year of all this ' taking ' one could only hope, that when they got home in the evening, something good was playing on HBO. Cold facts The school suffered its first snow day drought since 1 972. Only one snow day was recorded this year. Students and teachers felt cheated after eight years of several snow vacations. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini: the man behind Iran. Eucher and checkers were played by stricing Harvester employees. Back home in New Haven, Mr. Paul Armstrong completed his final year at the high school before going into retirement. National capsule — 17 DecQclG CQp ule spcaftUM Flashback When the new Seniors flocked back to NHHS in September of 1969, their ambitious characters pre- vailed over the rest of the student body. Thoughts of the draft, college and mar- riages didn ' t detract from Senior spirit or support. The early ' 70 ' s were noted for total student body participation. Pep club included over 1 50 girls with matching uniforms. Future Teachers of America, Office Education Associa- tion, Future Business Lead- ers of America, Girls Ath- letic Association and Rifle Association were clubs that prepared students for future occupations. All of these clubs are non-exis- tent today. Mid-way through the ' 70 ' s fashions were changed as students pressed for a more lenient dress code. Contrary to faculty opinions, pleated culottes and erratic hem- lines were not disrupting to the learning process. Although males didn ' t seem to experiment with clothes as much as their counterparts, guys did go to flared-bottom pants and wide ties. Sporting contests, dances, musical concerts, and other extra-curricular activities began to domi- nate the social preferences of students during the dec- ade. The NHHS marching band marched to a first place rating at the NIS- BOVA contest. Graduation used to be held in ttie Memorial Coliseum.

One person ' s " best " may be another person ' s half-hearted attempt. Even a gold medal at the Olympics only means that at that particular time one person ' s " best " was better than another ' s. Each year we have annual traditions such as homecoming, dances, the musi- cal. The Happening, and the Prom and after Prom. Every person participating in these events has one goal in mind. Let ' s make this one the best ever. As long as we maintain that kind of atti- tude each goal will be easier to achieve because we gave it our all — our best. Watching the Homecoming Parade is a thrill for most youngsters, especially wtien there is a chance for a free balloon. Posing lor the camera are Sophomores Linda Bis- choff and Julie Wetter.

Drama Club Play — 23 " Hang Homestead " the sen- ior Homecoming slogan and the deathly acting job of Tom Miller only won the upperclass- man third place out of four Entrants, Football, bobby-socks, queen, dressing-down N hen we think back on Homecoming 79, we will probably think first of a football game, but there was much, much more. There were flocks of bobby-socked, pony- tailed girls flirting with t-shirted guys with an occasional cigarette pack rolled up in the sleeve. Kick lines shaboomed rhythmically to a soprano, " I found my thrill on strawberry hill. " Spirit week had arrived. A rare homeroom was ordered Tuesday morning to vote on candidates for Homecoming Queen and court. The real jest was shifted, counted and recounted. When it was all through, Tina Henry reigned as Queen School spirit helps edge teams on to victories. Bob Exer- son IS clocked full of pep and leads the senior class in their occasionally obnoxious cheers. Discarded clothes were dragged out of trunks and attics to be torn up by fellow spirited students such as Scott Workman. of the 1 979 Homecoming festivities. Lori Grey, Kathy Rhodes, Peggy Wormcastle and Tami Snell filled in the spots of senior attendance dances. The student body got a chance to clean out closets Tuesday. The day was " Dress-down Day " and except for the Seniors who apparently confused Dress-up and Dress- down day, the dress was casual, and the order of the day was to become more and more " Casual " as the day wore on, resulting in a number of students being sent home to dress decently, only to return and within minutes learn again the truth about losing the shirt off one ' s back. 24 Homecoming Sometimes it ' s hard to see something you ' ve worl ed for and looked forward to come out wrong. But maybe the end result doesn ' t always tell the whole story. Going into the game two-touchdown favorites, the bulldogs and fans were ready and eager to top off Homecoming with a victory over Homestead. But things don ' t always come out the way they are planned. After three scoreless quarters, the Spartans broke the Bulldog defense to score, then added an extra point to lead the game 7-0 in the final few minutes. The horrible, sinking feeling in our hearts didn ' t last long though, as our guys sent forth a tremendous drive that ended with a touchdown. Pandemonium broke loose in our stands, while on the visitor ' s side there was only a shocked silence. But in the end a missed extra-point pushed the game in favor of the Spartans, 7-6. Our fans sat numbly for a few seconds afterwards, trying to digest the essence of the loss, listen to shattered hopes and fight the inevitable depression. Homestead ' s crowd left triumphant, and we were left to console each other as best we could. Some attended the disco dance in the auditeria in hopes that music and friends would help them forget, while others hit Pizza Hut or sought solitude to deal with the loss. Junior varsity cheerleaders Linda Mauller (10), Julie Wet- ter (1 0), Nancy Whiteman (11), and varsity cheerleader Jane Brand, Homecoming 25 Shadow Dances The mood was set for each of the danc- ers. Everyone decided ahead of time what they would be and whether or not they would enjoy it. Other factors played an important part on the outcome of the dances. The gloom of Homecoming hung an impenetia- ble shadow not only over the football field, but also over the dance. Each person felt the bur- den of this shadow upon themselves. The Sweetheart dance gave everyone that chance to spend a romantic evening with their special someone. Once again the dance floor remained empty for the majority of the dance. Only when the music slowed and the lights dimmed, did the couple leave their seats on the sidelines for a dance on the floor. The highlight of the dance year was the Jun- ior-Senior Prom. The large attendance was due mainly to a good P.R. job by the junior class. But there was much, much more to the dances than the music and couples dancing. They were a time for friends to be together and make the memories for the year to come as we " Reach for the Best. " During the crowning of prom king and queen, Darrell Caudell and Michelle Carr relax awhile, surrounded by friends. Moments of affection took place at the annual Sweetheart dance. Jan Brand and Tom Haus took the title of " King and Queen of Hearts.

A tradition isonward The Performing Arts production of " Where ' s Charley? " was truly another fine performance of the students from the music department. Last year ' s perform- ance of " Once Upon a Mattress, " started a new tradition of fine musical programs, and this year ' s production under the direction of Dennis Eller and Charles Henke was no excep- tion. No one will ever know the many many hours that are spent both by the students and the directors, who work to make everything just right. A musical takes a lot more time and energy. Besides acting out the scenes songs need to be practiced, and the dances need choreographing. Once the musical starts, every student must devote all his time to learn- ing his lines, and songs. There is also a lot of work outside the acting. Programs, tickets, publicity, costumes and sets are all part of getting the show together. A good two months are usually spent putting the show together. This year the cast ' s main roles were given to seniors. Charley Wyken was played by (Viarc Todd, whose tremendous comedy acting abil- ity highlighted the show. His roommate, Jack Chesney, was required to be an excellent doner and singer. This part went to Doug King. Jane Brand and Lori Drayer portrayed the two young college girls who fell in love with Jack and Charley. Mr. Spettigive, their overbearing guardian, was played by Dave Bassett. And Scott Rathgaber was Sir Francis Chesney, the man who fell for Donna Lucia. Junior Nancy Sickafoose was casted as the real Donna Lucia.

Sadie Hawkins enjoyed the best attendance of all dances. About 194 couples milled among the fund raising booths of the school ' s clubs during the fair. Norm Stephen ' s " Movie of the Year " highlighted the fair, while spit- ting seeds and " snorting " doughnuts made it even more memorable. The memories didn ' t end there. After the last balloon popped and the last prize was received, " Tear Drops " reju- vinated the evening with music. In addition to playing popular tunes, the group performed square dances for tradition ' s sake and slow dances for quieter moments. Before the dance ' s end the King and Queen were revealed. Dave Bassett and Cathy Hall, seniors, were crowned. Shortly after Marty Gaskill and Janet Kanable were awarded Mr. and Miss Sexy Legs. Although the girls escorted their guy to the dance, tiney were expected to prove that they could keep him as well as marry him.

They spent hours rehearsing the duet, " noted Chuck Henke, Director. Wilson began writing the music ten days before the show. The censored words of the " Jug City, " band brought the crowd to its feet for the hit " Magic Fingers. " The fun evening came to an end with the seniors roast of Principal Jake Delagrange. The staged food fight stopped the show. Outstanding science student Scott Rathgaber also has a talent for singing displayed with the Beatles song " Fool on the Hill. " " Magic Fingers " was not only sung, but also compose by Todd Ortner (11).

The number of people showed the support it received artially because an excellent p.r. job, pounding on the romance, coronation, and 7Stal glasses. The band was Alternating Current, an idianapolis-based group. According to some udents, they left a lot be be desired. " The band was bad, " commented senior jlie Losher. " The only thing they did good ere slow dances. " Beginning at 9:00 p.m., the dance lasted ntil midnight. Most couples " sat out " as much s they danced causing a slight problem with a .nortage of chairs. Coronation, the high point of the evening, seemed more of a solemn proceeding than usual, but in the end, Nancy Sickafoose and Tom Haus led off the theme song as queen and king. Seniors Jim Fitzgerald and Tina Henry gave up the thrones after their year ' s reign. Attendants were Sherry Reed, Teresa Newkirk, and Julie Hill. Junior boys were Paul Baxter, Bill Reimschisel, and John Harding. Senior attendants were Jane Brand and Pat Menzie and Terri Mauller and Gregg Largen. All in all, a few couples felt the prom was less than their expectations. Commented senior Dave Berghoff, " It was like going to see the movie " Grease. " The advertising made it sound really great, but when you went to see it. it was nothing. " Ready fo give up his crown, Jim Fitzgerald looks at the other attendants. Smiles are displayed by Nancy Sic- kafoose as Tina Henry hands a bou- quet to the new queen. 1-35 Everyone expects and awaits graduation . . and that isn ' t all, as Seniors Jackie Caroll and Mark Carr attend retiearsal tor the big night. Some were " slightly nervous, " and others were " calm, cool, col- lected and all smiles " as you see on the faces of Coreena Johnson and Phil Jennings during rehearsal for graduation Chris and Tina Adams laugh it up at graduation rehearsal Long awaited line Along line slowly entered the gymnasium, only to return again to the filled hallway to start all over. The hardest part of graduation, for most, was getting in alphabetical order. Over 25 min- utes were put in just finding the right place in line. Some seniors found themselves next to people they had been friends with for years, and others next to people tjney bearly knew. Yet they all felt they had one thing in com- mon, and they did. Each felt a certain amount of pride and confidence in themselves. After entering and finding correct seats speeches were practiced, and minds turned to other things. The next night was the night they had waited for, for thirteen years. Yet, there was a certain confused feeling for many. While they were happy to graduate, there was an emptiness that had been filled with the fun and good times had at school. When the speeches were finished, they practiced exiting. As soon as the graduating class left for a night of fun at graduation par- ties. 36- ■ Graduation rehearsal While Freshman, sophomore, and Junior students are in class Seniors spend their time practic- ing the commencement cere- mony.

Grand exodus for 1980 The sun was just beginning to set on the horizon when gowns of purple and gold began to enter the school. For nnany, this would be the last time to walk down the school halls. Soon the halls were a wall of purple, unpen- etrable by outsiders. Excitement shown on the faces, turning to proclaim their joy to fellow classmates. When the processional began, the onlookers stood and showed their admiration for the graduates. Mothers shed tears for their sons and daughters, for some it was their first child to graduate, and for others, their youngest child i soon would be leaving home, to build a world i for himself. | When the speeches had been made and allj the names were read, the gymnasium tDegan tol empty. In the commons friends hugged, ' kissed, and cried together. The pain was the losing a part of oneself. i In the days to follow there was a certain! emptiness to the halls. People looked forij someone who had left and would never be ' found. A part of New Haven High School left, never to return to the rooms or corridors with, the class of 1980.

Each per- son reached and grasped what he could. Clubs met and dismissed, sold and reaped the profits. But all through the year something began to build. Clubs became better, more members were brought in, money made, yet something else was built. Clubs were a time for friends and being together. uSnnnnjinmimj Simon says the French way add some laughs to the French club initiation.

It ' s not a new story, actually, it is rather old, but it ' s a good one. It ' s the story ot the Speech Team. As with most stories, it starts out unhappily. The Speech Team started out with few members and hardly ever win- ning a tournament in many years. Then along came the " prince, " Coach Dennis Eller, who kissed the spell away. Unfortunately for both Coach Eller and the Speech Team it took more than just a kiss to bring the team back to life. It took hours of practice and research on both parts to revive the club. Through all the hours of practice and getting up before the sun, something was gained. Something no " wicked witch " could ever take away, friendship. Every- one met someone special and made all o1 the time spent worthwhile. A new family was made for everyone. The Speech Team now rid of the spells is returning to the place of high ranking i; once held. Already they have placed high in several tournaments and three mem bers advanced to state. 42 Performing arts A confession of love for eacfi otfier bring a smile, to Doug King Tfieresa Snyder faces. Performing arts — 43 44 Performing arts stage of tradition W ith the closing of each school year comes a feeling of loss and won- der of things to come in the next year. Each year, at graduation there is a wonder if the underclassman will be able to carry on the tradition of the graduating members of Drama Club. The underclassmen get a chance to prove themselves in the one-acts held each Spring after the Musical. During the brief few weeks of practice there is even more wonder than ever before. Lines have not been learned or they are forgotten, like the wonder will soon be. It all builds to the opening night climax. Standing underneath the bright lights, with sweat beads building upon the fore- head, lines are said, mistakes are made. Too often, it seems to the young actors that the audience is not responding. They were. While the curtain closes and the cast members hear the applause, there are tears of joy, and love for the other mem- bers. When it ' s all over, while the custodian sweeps the floor, there is peace once more in the halls of school and in the minds of the fans of New Haven ' s Drama Productions.

Known as " field trips, " although no one actually went to a field, they were enjoyed by students in almost all depart- ments. A new development, both to the Eng- lish department and to field trips as a whole, was begun by the Senior English classes and Larry Huff. The students organized a dinner and night out at the Civic Theater ' s production of Shake- speare ' s " As You Like It. " " I think seeing the play was a tremen- dous addition to ordinary classes — besides giving a greater appreciation of Shakespeare, " commented senior Janet Kanable. Chicago was a favorite place for trips. visited by the Drama Club, publications, physics and French classes. " Chicago is a cultural center, " stated Jon Haverstick, junior. " You don ' t have to run al l over the country — everything ' s there. " The most unusual trip of the year was that of the band to Disney World over Spring Break. It was a new idea, one which the band had been working towards all year. There were times it was a question of money, times it was a ques- tion of discipline, times it was almost called off completely. Smiling, junior Stacey Reagan said, " It was fun, except for the last day there. Everyone came down with sun poison- ing. " The castle at Walt Disney World was a view taken in by most campus life members While in Florida most people like these girls enjoy the hot humidity by cooling ott in the water 46- - Trips For the students who went to J-Day going down on the bus was the next best thin g to being there • 4 The magic garden outside the castle was a view not to be forgotten. Trips — 47 The f urxj raisers The annual Band candy sale led off the year in a long stream of fun- draising activities. Band members left the Bandroom with a long procession of boxes and bars of candy. The competition began. Students rushed to teachers to hit them for a buck- fifty for a box only to find out they had already bought. Candy bars exchanged hands. Pieces were snook out of pockets and purses and entered mouths. Never were so many candy bars confiscated. Band, however, was not the only group getting into the action. Gymnastics team took over with their sell of M M ' s were seen flying down the halls. Every group had their chance at the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Booths were set up and each club brought in money.

The German and French clubs were once again able to have their spring ban- quets and a banquet with all the clubs was held in the auditeha. Foods repre- senting the cultures of the countries were brought in by each club.

Gist of the h,s, club M: j eetings were as much a part of New Haven High School as the events which came about. Behind every Huggie Bear sold, behind every student activity, some organization was behind it and meetings were the gist of those organizations. Meetings took place at the oddest hours of the day, any day of the week. Student Council met on a regular basis at 7:30 in the morning, weekly. Speech team held competitive meets nearly each Saturday during the winter months of the year. And the foreign language clubs, well they met what seemed like all the time — morning, noon, and night on called occasions. During these meetings, activities ranged from ho-drum business discus- sions to water balloon and shaving cream initiations to mini-Mardi Gras parties, to Halloween dress-ups. Officers were nominated and elected early in the year but for other clubs, the leaders were chosen in the spring. Some- times the title came with merely the name and other times a meeting leader headed an event. Meetings, overall, helped make the events of New Haven High School suc- cessful.

From homecoming floats to pushing an onion along the floor with your nose, the clubs had a wide range of activities. One of the events the clubs participate in each year is the homecoming float competition. The Spanish club won this year. To finance this and other activities, clubs had money-making projects such as JCL ' s candy sale. Eating is always a popular event and this year there was pot-luck with foreign language students. Each club brought food that represented the culture of the country they ' re studying. Initiation of new members was a popu- lar event. French initiates said a big mac poem in French with crackers in their mouth and Latin students raced along a stage on their hands and knees pushing an onion. Students also had chances to learn about the culture of the countries such as the German trip to Frankenmuth. During the year ' s activities, members had a chance to get to know each other better, which is one of the best reasons to have a club in the first place.

The Varsity football — team was no exception. In the ten game season, they suffered four defeats by a combined total of ten points. One of the most painful losses of the season was a two point set back to Belmont. " The bus ride home from Belmont, " Junior Greg DeCamp stated, " seemed unbelievably long. Nobody said a word all the way home. " " It was a hard game to lose, we got a lot of bad breaks, " stated Junior Tackle Jeff King. " That ' s when Brian (Stier) got hurt and Bob (Cheviron) came in and had a lot of pressure on him. " One of the most heart breaking of the season was a homecoming defeat to Homestead. The Bulldogs came up one point short when the gun sounded. Close to a victory in the Bellmont game on his pas- ses, Brian Stier ' s right ankle was broken with less than thirty seconds to go in the game.

Consisting of twenty-nine players, the JV team compiled a record of four wins and four losses, gaining valuable experience for varsity competition the fol- lowing year. Their first half of the season started out right for the Bulldogs, winning four of their first five games. Then they lost their last three games to Garrett, Homestead, and Columbia City. The freshman squad also had a record of four wins and four losses winning one of their four games beating Leo and los- ing to Homestead, Bishop Dwenger and Angola. Their other half of the season started out on a better note winning their next three and losing to Bellmont their last game. Coaches Hank Neitert and Pat Mono- ghan would like to have had a winning season but enjoyed coaching their team the fundamentals of football, preparing them for future football playing. Many JV and Freshman players are preparing themselves for a chance at someday making the varsity team, a dream every freshman and JV team member has.

Then you ' re in pain for the next half hour and feel sick for the next two days. Whether running for exercise or participating on a team, most runners do it because they like it, not because they have to. Here it might have meant a little more. The Bulldogs compiled the best season record in the past 1 years. Harriers were running outside of regu- lar practice. But this can ' t explain the total answer to their success. " We couldn ' t let that Heritage team beat us for the fourth time in a row, " said Senior Brent Cain. And if not revenge — pride. Distance running requires pacing A cross coun- try course is 2 ' 2 miles up hill and through mud. Drained from the pace, Randy Ray (1 2) drags on. " Hey, some of us are seniors and this is our last chance to prove ourselves, " added Jim Fitzgerald. A typical practice for the bulldogs included an opening set of exercises that took an hour to complete. " In practice, when we started laughing we just couldn ' t stop. I guess that was how we kept the team spirit up, " commented John Harding. The remainder of the prac- tice varied from running 40 minutes of sprints to eight miles of easy running and an occasional race around the city streets. The path of a harrier can be found on the hills of Central Luthern School. Each runner ran at least 30 hills three nights of the week and in some cases — double. f % The 1979 Cross Country Team.

" It will take a few years t)efore the sport gains the attention it deserves, " said Dennis Johnson, head volleyball coach. Volleyball is in its second year at New Haven and quickly showing signs of improvement. Although the varsity team failed to win a handful of victories, the talent and potential was evident as the bulldogs surpassed many power houses throughout the season. According to Johnson, there were mixed feelings among the varsity and junior varsity players. " I thought the team was good, but they could have did better than we did, " said Marty Gaskill. " The team experienced inconsistency problems that developed from ' up and down ' situations, " added John Brand. Many of the younger players offered different reasons for the outcome of the season. " We did our best except it wasn ' t good enough, " said Mike Whitney. " I thought it was hard to go against competition that was better than you, " noted Brad Graham.

" The junior varsity team struggled to finish the season In good standing by climaxing the .500 mark as four players were participating on the varsity team during the year.

I — Boys ' Volleyball Boys ' Volleyball — 69 Athlete Injuries Add Up One statistic that often goes unnot- iced is one on injuries. Every team is subject to these nnaladjustments which can range from a nagging toenail to knees that require major surgery. In fact, injuries are so common to the ath- letes that it would be unfair to assume that any team will be successful before their season begins. Coaches say " Barring injuries, we will be tough. " This statement applies to high school athletics very well. If the 6 ' 8 " cen- ter on the basketball team suddenly breaks his finger the team ' s chances of winning greatly decrease. Injuries often halt a young athlete ' s career before it has A sprained ankle was good enough to keep this varsity football player on crutches. A sprained ankle kept this varsity football player out of the game. a chance to begin. Injuries to the body also hurt an athlete mentally. " You really feel separated from the team, " said Dave Crabill, who sat out of football and wrestling with a knee injury. Wrestler Ted Wilson missed repeatedly with a neck injury which required him to wear a towel around his neck. Due to his loss of practice, he lost a lot of confidence, which Is vital in his sport. The sport in which a higher number of athletes miss games and practice time is due to injuries at track. Nate Swenson missed virtually all of the track season because of weak knees. Swenson was fortunate to be able to return and post a new record in the discus throw. Rehabilitation from an injury can often mean taking time off to rest, it can mean taking medication, or wearing a brace or bandage on the afflicted area. When an athlete must worry about recovering from an injury along with concentration on his sport, distractions occur and the athlete loses touch with his sport and his team- mates. With all the problems injuhes present, they become a statistic where a team cannot come out on top. 70 — Injuries A cut between the fingers gave this football player reason to be concerned.

Then why does the aver- lage player spend five nights a week for ' two hours after school and two hours on Saturday playing basketball? After all, he could be out making a few " bucks " or at home relaxing by the tube. Many players become interested in basketball then they start high school, but, for some, it starts as a childhood experience. " I ' ve played basketball since I was a kid. Junior high was my first chance to play on an organized team. As I entered high school, the sport became more competitive, so I had to work harder to be an influencing part of the team, " said Chris Genitle. Whatever the case, basketball doesn ' t come easy for anyone. " You have to have the touch for basketball, " noted Pat Menzie. Many hoop-conscious athletes spend hours upon hours during the sum- mer trying to improve their skills. More devoted players will attend server clinics and camps geared specifically to basket- ball techniques. Basketball need not be taken so seri- ously though. Unlike wrestling, baseball, golf and other sports that pull few fans, basketball is the number one interest in many schools, thus drawing huge crowds. " It ' s really great to see 800 fans cheer- ing you on, " said one player. Varsity basketball coach John Hans gets a major I . headache, the cause was losing. Varsity tasketball — 73 Shoot the Hoop Shoot the Hoop, the Lady Bulldogs team motto, led them through a successtui season. Denise Pickett summed up the team ' s abilities per-tectly when she said, " I knew trom the begin- ning we had great potential but I also knew there would be times when we would have our work cut out tor us. " The Northside game, one of the first games played before the boys, was one time the girls had their work cut out for them. They arose to the occasion beauti- fully, with an overtime victory. When asked how it felt to beat the 9th ranked team in the state they all agreed it had to be the most exciting and fulfilling moment of the year. Senior Nancy Hathaway look- ing up at the scoreboard replied, " This is what practice is all about and I hope to see more girls ' games before the guys. " " It ' s a big achievement for girls B-ball. " The team as a whole had set very high goals for themselves from the beginning of the season. Although they did not accomplish everything they set out to do; they worked very hard and set many school records. Coach Lose thought the team ' s four-game winning streak and 500 season, the best record in seven years, showed much for the team ' s potential.

" When asked about the coaches the girls all agreed that there were none bet- ter to be found anywhere. " They taught us how to play together as a team and win, yet still have lots of fun, " stated Jun- ior Trina Gentile. The coaches had a way of knitting the team together and making them want to work to improve them- selves. As reserve-guard Shelly Steger commented, " I think the reason we got the job done so well, was because we were like a big family, everyone helped everyone else. " Senior Melea Shaffer was voted Most Valuable player as well as being leading scorer and the best free-thrower shooter.

Girl ' s varsity basketball — 75 76 JV basketball Equal Hoosier ' Dog Excitement m Whenever " Junior Varsity Basket- ball " is mentioned the first impres- sion one gets is " not as important or as good as the Varsity team. " Although it is evident that the varsity bas- ketball team will undoubtedly be better than the Junior Varsity, many feel the excitement is equal. " There were many more lost games at New Haven among Junior Varsity teams than the Varsity, " said an interested Bulldog fan. Some fans do not like Varsity games in which each team moves up and down the floor scoring each time without fouls or turnovers — a little boring perhaps. At least some J.V. games appear to consti- tute some " scrapping or sloppy " plays on the floor. Many fans like to see a little contact; along with wild plays and eratic shots. Most Junior Varsity teams are com- posed of Sophomores and Juniors along with some occasional Freshman on the squads. Many of the Junior Varsity play- ers move on to play at the Varsity level after a few years. Therefore, the Varsity players had to start somewhere to get to where they did. Since many players feel they deserve the credit that others get, they must wait and prove themselves so they ' ll be recog- nized; so next time you watch a J.V. bas- ketball game credit the players for what they ' re doing remember, they ' ll be tomor- row ' s top level.

Gymnastics — 79 We ' ve Got Spirit Though the halls of the old high schools ceased to exist years ago, there is still something about them which still continues to live on. The streetlights sent a cast across the empty path on that warm fall eve. The wind swept leaves around the feet which slowly crossed over it. Shadows laid rest- lessly on the paths, slowly waving to the wind. Over the rustle of the leaves still remaining on the trees voices becoming audible. Each one, locked in place from days passed. Each one echoed continu- ously through the night air. Every voice told its story, a story of the game won, of the pep session which was taking place that day, sometimes in the past. There was a rustling sound in the wind. It was like the sound of leaves moving to and fro in the wind, yet quite different. It was the sound of pompon papers moving against one another. The wind began to change, it became a tune, the sound of the song sung by many for. The voices whispered the words of the song through the rows of shrubs. " Old New Haven, my old New Haven . . . " The voices continued until the last words were sung. " Are they famous yet?

At least not for the Varsity wrestling team. Wrestling one man short of the full compliment of thirteen, the team compiled a 4-6 dual meet record. Coach Stan Hostetler said, " If we had a full compliment of wrestlers our record would have been 7-3; I felt we only had three matches in which we were bombarded. " Despite the losing dual meet record, the team had one of its best statistical seasons ever. A positive 212 points was the highest point total ever gained by a Bulldog team. The team ' s individual record was 1 59 wins and 1 22 losses with two ties. The season consisted of tournaments along with the dual meets. The first tour- nament the Bulldogs wrestled in was the Woodlan Invitational where, after winning in 1978, they placed third. Seniors Ted Wilson and Tom Leazotte and Sopho- more Paul Creager were champions from New Haven. Next on the tournament schedule was the New Haven Invitational in which the team also placed third.

Five Bulldogs received All-Conference awards at the tourney. Wilson, Creager, Leazotte, Deme- traides, King, and Senior Greg Davis were the Bulldogs which placed first or second in the Sectional. For this, they advanced to the Regional meet. In the Regional, Davis and King were cham- pions, and Leazotte and Wilson placed second. The team was third scoring 9OV2 points. First and second place finishers advanced to Semi-state. Leazotte placed third and was an alternate to state.

Thie reserve wres- tler goes through all the practices of the varsity squad but his season ends a month earlier. Part of the job of the reserve wrestler is to help, by practicing to field a successful varsity team. A reserve wrestling team can be looked at as a squad of healthy guys ready to step in for their varsity opponent at any minute. With a record of 8-6-1, the reserves moved five men into varsity pos- itions at one time or another in their sea- Greg Jackson, Greg Peaks, Scott Geels, Gary Groves, and Grant Daly were the wrestlers who split their time between varsity and reserve roles. Coached by Garen fvlarks, who wres- tled at New Haven under Stan Hostetler, the reserve squad went unnoticed and unrecognized during their season. Com- menting on the reserves, Hostetler said, " I think the reserve squad this year was a stepping stone to fill spots left open by the departing seniors. " Filling in, the reserves did their job They stayed healthy and provided thej varsity wrestlers with some valuable pre meet competition. Several seniors found themselveji wrestling reserve because of toughe competition in the weight class. Thesf wrestlers were in a strange predicament they couldn ' t wait till next year, it had tc be now. Watching from the stands was not wha these athletes wanted to do; it was diffi cult for them to accept their positions. Greg Davis gets a backhold on his opponent as he prepares for the pin.

Perhaps beginning practice over two months before the first game was the key to their success. Two years ago coach Don HumI began fixing the playing facility at New Haven. " It takes a lot of hard work — not just mowing, but watering, edging, weeding and leveling dirt are necessary for main- taining a ball park, " said HumI. With a lit- tle money and muscle, HumI feels the facility will be the best around. Preseason practice began on February 1 . During this time players are practicing fielding, throwing, catching, and hitting. After the -first game, practice usually becomes " passe. " HumI prefers as many scheduled games as possible. " It is tough for a coach to motivate and have a good practice after playing four games a week; however, a practice is a welcome relief from pressure, " continued HumI. Mid-way through preseason HumI suf- fered an eye injury that kept him away for two weeks. " The players were very coop- erative. They worked on the diamond and did everything I could ask of them, " added HumI. All of the team ' s success can not be attributed to early preseason training and the well-rounded playing field. " The atti- tude was good, the desire and hustle were great; thus they played great base- ball. " Senior Todd Pickett slides safely into third after hitting a triple.

The moon shown brightly in the sky, clear and unclouded. Stars were span- gled across the night, as numerous as the grains of sand on the beach. There was one star in the sky that was bigger and brighter than all of the rest. He sat there on the bench, looking into the night. He saw the moon, he felt the bite of the cool evening air, and he saw the one star, standing out from all the others. The crowd behind him began to shout, they rose to their feet, the momentum built. In his mind it was he who was carry- ing the ball. The cheers were for him as he ran down the field. The stadium roared loudly as the touchdown was made. He came back to reality, he knew the cheers were not for him, but for someone else. At halftime he went around from player to player congratulating everyone. In games when they were behind he would go to each player and say just the right thing to raise their spirits. No matter how far behind they got, he always looked on optimistically. And when the players ran back onto the field he took his seat. Although he was not the best player on the team, the bright stars shone down on him. For he was the brightest part of the team. His spirit, hope, and faith outshined the rest, even in the gloomiest of times. 90 Benchwarmers ipiM ;, . i»»aMt- iMii i i iiiii tir ■- ' AM.

What about the student who goes a little further and cleans up after athletes; moreover, 60 of them, " What else is there to do after school when you ' re not employed, " said Paul Melin track manager. Athletes who don ' t feel they are good enough to make the team but still want to become part of the squad usually take the path of manager. Managers are a very important factor in the success of a sport, " Without them, we would have no one to carry first-aid equipment, sort out gear, record times, keep statistics, and countless other things. It ' s too bad they can ' t be there everytime you need them, " said Pat Mon- oghan, track coach. Managers appear to get a touch of everything, " After we get the basketballs, jump ropes, and jersies out, we just sit around and do homework, " commented Kim Bredemeyer, Some managers get involved more deeply, " Sometimes I ' ll have to rebound balls shot by players when I ' m not occu- pied elsewhere, " added Jon Brotherton, basketball manager. 1 00 Managers Although managers put in long hours after school picking up after athletes, there is no pay to reward them. " Satisfac- tion has to be the best feeling one can have, " said Brotherton, Very few students further their manag- ing experience after high school, how- ever, many find it worthwhile in other fields of study. " I ' ll probably never become a professional trainer, but it ena- bled me to work with individuals in a dif- ferent prospective, " said D ' Ann Jones girls basketball manager.

The light brings hope, hap- piness, and cheer. It is the light of the spiritmakers. When the teams are behind and not only the fans have lost hope, but the play- ers too, the spiritmakers are out on the field with a smile on their faces and a gleam of hope in their eyes. At the Homecoming Pep session Mr Armstrong and Jane Brand exctiange a hug after Mr. Arm- strong accepted his award. Excitement is demonstrated at an away game by Lisa Miller. For the cheerleaders and Vic the Bull- dog, there is no sitting on the sidelines. Every game they are out on the field working. Though they are not running up and down a court or field scoring points they are helping in their cheers a mere example of their support Spiritmakers feel the pain the players go through. Every twisted ankle, sprained wrists, or broken bone is seen in their faces. At a baslietball game Nancy Sickaloose and Teresa Newkirk show excitement by hugging on the game floor while the Bulldogs go on for a victory. Cheerleaders — 1 03 Spiritmakers The friendship of the cheerleaders is evident not only on the floor, but in their everyday lives. " We ' re like sisters, " said varsity cheerleader Jane Brand, " only closer. " Their friendship not only among each other, but the entire school popula- tion. Almost everyday when walking down a hall, a person is given a friendly smile and hello by at least one of the spir- itmakers. During the game a spectator has no need to watch the players to see what is happening. Every move and play the players make is shown in the movements of the cheerleaders. There are jumps and shouts at making a basket. Moans and drooping chins show a rebound. When the game is won they wipe back the tears of joy and jump and scream their cheers. As they proceed to the dance from fields in the fall, their smiles radiate throughout the night, informing anyone who might not have heard the results who the winners were.

Classes, whole 3partments were devoted to !ie idea that creativity, utility, nd skill should not be over- loked in a liberal high school ' jucation. The Home Economics, Art, nd Industrial Arts depart- ents formed the hub of the leory. These departments id the majors to be acquired each, being in, at one time another, most of the stu- nt body. The reasons are iried: " I took Foods as a senior, just to give myself a break from the college prep grind, " stated senior Dave Bassett. " Besides, who knows when I ' ll need that knowledge. " Senior Jerry Karpe said, " Art keeps creativity flowing. You meet all kinds of people find new depths of yourself. " Others cited preparation for life or careers as the main rea- son. " It is, of course, valid to rea- son that some of these stu- dents see these classes as their primary preparation for a job, " commented Mr. Phil Rit- chie, auto mechanics teacher.

Making things Painting, Cooking, Crocheting B eyond the whys, what went on in the classes was the important crite- na. In the Art department this year, there were few changes. The teachers, Steve Nelson and David Tarr, tried to awaken their students to new ways of thinking, insight on expressing their emotions. Basic art classes such as painting and ceramics fine- tuned their emotions. Stu- dents had their work displayed outside the IMC. While the smells of paint and clay prevailed in the Art department, the smells in the Home Economics hall were, generally speaking, a lot more appetizing. Cooking is an artform of its own, as the students learned. Foods 1 , taught by Janet Lef- fel, was overrun by seniors, many of whom had a lot to learn. " Oh, my kitchen decided cocoa should be boiled, " said senior Jan Gibson. " Sounds fine, but scalded milk tastes terrible. " Knitting, crocheting and macrame were all learned by the students in the needlecraft class. Although most were making booties and scarves, a few students were going on to bigger projects, such as afghans and sweaters. The clothing classes busied them- selves not only with sewing clothes, but in fitting and car- ing for the finished project. Often termed " home econ- omy " classes rather than " economics, " the aspects of saving money, doing things yourself stressed.

And whether you were looking for pre-job experience or ways to save money on clothes, it was pos- sible to find what you sought. In Mr. Klopenstein ' s Zool- ogy class, students were given the option of a semester term paper or project. Junior Darren Rudolph took the term paper option and researched primates. When his research was complete, his 13-page paper received the A- letter grade, pleasing in the eye of Rudolph. The long hours at research has paid off but so had the fin gers at the typewriter keys as Rudolph typed the entire tern paper hims elf before present ing it to Klopenstein. Beyond all the inclass papers, compositions, experi ments, and projects student! tampered with various ere ative endeavors as well Teachers turned to assigning projects which allowed skill; usage and a break from the usual monotony of the educa tional day.

No cure has been found although the dis- ease fades in warm weather. Not fatal. Last year hundreds of sen- iors were afflicted with this disease. As common as the cold, senioritis has afflicted seniors for years. Even though it has not been medically categorized it has been reported to begin with a standing at the voting polls for sen- ior commencement gowns Tom Lazotte checks out the bussled situa- tion. Many of the students enjoyed dress down day, like Doug Linlnger enjoys dress down day and beautiful girls lack of will power. The disease then spreads to the hands, hampering muscular coordi- nation. This can lead to the inability to grasp pencils, paper, and in advanced cases books. After leaving its crippling marks on the hand, the dis- ease moves to its final area, the brain. There it stiffles thinking processes. Its exact origin unknown, it is believed to have originated in the West. The first case having been reported in 1 896. Doctors prescribe no aspi- rin, lots of rest and above all, participation in all senior activ- ities as well, as many field trips as possible. Even though this is not a guaranteed cure it has been found to relieve the pressure brought on by this disease.

New Haven the school Thousands of lives have been affected by the activities in this building. Thousands of friendships have been made and shared because of common ties in this one building. Thou- sands of smiles and tears have been worn on the faces of years as people met together in this building — and this building being New Haven High School. September 6, 1977, weary, yet excited, students strolled down the halls of the commons for the first time. Everything about the school was somewhat of a mystery as the building was totally new at that time. More than $7 million had been poured into the walls and floors of the school ' s building and its door had opened with a new sense of excitement and anticipation. Once the halls and classrooms became routine and the once empty corridors became scuffed with the black marks of hard shoes and athletic turf, the building took on a personality that would only grow in its spirit. An old building had been left behind, but a new one had become the true home for the Bulldogs of New Haven. With the scuff marks on the floor came the sounds of familiar voices echoing off the walls. Each morning, dreary as each may be, brought a new rumble of laughter, joking, whispering, and contemplating about the movie at the 30 East this weekend or the test in Mrs. Holt ' s grammar class. Purple Bulldog jerseys tucked in Wrangler jeans hanging over Adidas tennis shoes lined the walls of the school each morning, waiting for the tone to sound to signify the beginning of first hour or homeroom — no one really ever " " :5%i, 118- ■ School feature II IVIB ' M r l _wr-i s rniM ' V- ' l-- lUi Cheerleader Tracy Lockard prac- tices her cheers before the coli- seum fills up for the big night at the sectionals.

Fifty-minute classes dominated the hours of the building ' s days, but more was said and learned in the hallways, club meeting, and extra-curricular event than met the eyes of the participants. Who would have ever known the party at the conservation club on Fri- day night had been broken up due to a few present minors, had it not been heard in the halls between classes? And who would have remembered the book reports for Eller ' s class were due a week earlier than expected had it not been delivered in nearly perfect speech form as a complaint minutes before the class one day? Even the gymnasium took on a form of personality as thousands of people piled into its bleachers for pep sessions and Hoosier hys- teria. Bulldog style. Cheerleader chants and repeated spirit speeches were replaced later in the year by the lines dressed in caps and robes like the members of a Baptist choir. Each year a group of individuals took diplomas and graduated. And with the diploma came a walk outside the walls of this building — a walk that didn ' t return the graduate to the school on the routine basis. Instead, if gave the person a chance to reflect on this building, its smiles and tears, friendships and ties, clubs, and classes. And at the top of the diploma, the line read: New Haven High School. jmi 120 ' ■ School feature A whole line of guys and gals watching the " tun " and " festivi- ties " at Sadie Hawkins.

The student council sponsored the project which was designed to aid handicapped people experi- ence the joys of competition. Barbara Ahlersmeyer, stu- dent council sponsor said, " According to state Special Olympic Officials, our volun- teers were superior to any they ever had. " She contin- ued, " I think that ' s super. " Teacher Gary Lake served as meet director and put much time and effort into the project. Student council Presi- dent and Vice President Laura Ritter and T. J. Crisler were also instrumental in the suc- cess of the event. It really was special to see the participants in their events. These people are not used to winning as various ill- nesses and diseases have beaten them all their lives. The Special Olympics gives all of them, not just the event win- ners, a chance to feel like they have won.

" The year seems to get usier and busier as the year goes by, especially with such an active swing choir, " exclaimed senior Jim Fitzger- ald. The swing choir had a vari- ety of shows, like swinging for the Junior High and for Dan Coats, G.O.P. candidate for Congress. Of course there were the regular places such as the Chamber of Com- merce, Geoglin ' s Barn, and for the first time, the Summit Club. When one sees the choir perform, it may look easy even though behind the scene everything sung takes much work beginning the first day of school. Problems like time sig- natures, key changes, and songs out of range or maybe being just tone deaf must be overcome. When the students get the idea work is done and it is time to rest, the work has just begun. Aside from remembering words, rhythms, and cut off, one must be able to give all his energy for each and every performance. " This is the most spirited and active choir I ' ve had since I ' ve been here, " said Henke. Performances were made easy tor Julie Hyde and Ted Wilson due to practice.

A fresh(man) experience This year the marching band was composed of many freshmen. This was a new experience for most of them. Standing out in front of people who stare at you while you think about how good you ' re going to sound is enough to give any freshman the shivers. Practicing was really tough, one freshman band members was quoted as saying " practicing was the hardest part, standing outside for three hours, three nights a week is enough to kill a per- son. " Most of the freshmen band members attended band camp. Curt Hunter attended the camp and said, " band camp was a lot of fun, except Initiation, it was a mess. " Being at band camp made the freshmen more skilled because of correcting their mistakes, and more stronger because if they made mis- takes they had to do push- ups. Band camp lasted for one-week, those freshmen] members who attended had a| good time.

Being a new corps to the band, the Lancers have put a lot of extra hours and effort practicing new flag moves and improving the basic ones, with the help from their advisor Diane Fisher and captain and co-captain Ellen Hawkins and Karen Best. " For being a new corps, I feel the girls have done a job of learning the routines and stuff, " said captain Ellen Haw- kins. " We put in a lot of hard work to make the Lancers what they are! " Highlights have also put in a lot of time into their practices. Captain Connie Kruckenberg comments, " The Highlights spend so many hours together throughout the year we feel like one big family, but the best part of being a High- light is when we get to perforrr the routine we worked so hare on. " Both drill teams have partici- pated in summer camps. The Lancers attended Camp Pied- mont and The Highlight? attended Camp Superstar Dril Team at Ball State University.

Peering through the small window of the door, bodies are seen bending over work. Fingers flash over the keys on the typewriter, the paper pulled, and rushed to an eagerly awaiting worker. Publication staff members once again spend hours to meet deadlines. Soon someone yawns, then another and yet another, until the whole room is yawning. Still the work goes on. Finally when the work is done the bodies stand and stretch. Completed, the work is shipped off to the printers. The weary bodies turn and walk out of the room, leaving D1 00 in darkness and silence. Through all the work, how- ever, friends were made and relationships which could never break were built. There are many people who work on the yearbook and Shelly Karrick is only one of them.

Some scouts stay in a little longer. Jerry Karpe is one such person. He has been in scouting for seven years and has attained the rank of Eagle Scout. " Maybe I just forgot to quit, " he laughed. When a scout gets through that many years, there ' s more to being a scout than lighting a fire with two dry sticks. Karpe is now helping with younger scouts, something he can continue for many years. Although some scouts sew their badges on jackets or shirts, Karpe has a much more laidback attitude. " I file them away in a drawer, " he replies, " or alternately, I patch jeans with them. " Karpe is also Editor and chief designer of the Mirage. He is the layout designer and cartoonist on the Herald, too Editor of the Mirage, Jerry Karpe (12), plans on attending Indiana University; majoring in TV. 140.

What a trip I don ' t think I ' ll ever do anything that will have more intensive educational impact than my travel and study ot the BRD (WEST GERMANY), ' commented Terry Dyben about his one-month stay in Breman, West Germany. Terry went on American Association ot Teachers of German Travel-Study Program for 1979. " We would meet our German Guest families and the fun would begin, and, " as he explained, " everyone was so excited that the 6,000 mile trip was just a blur. At first, we couldn ' t understand even simple communications but by the time he left, he was explaining Carter ' s Foreign Policy to German high school students. " I was impressed by the fantastic treatment the Germans gave us; they threw parties for us. Every day was filled with something exciting, but what I was stunned by the most was the unbelievable care and concern of my German father and mother, Dietrich and Karen Schacht, and my guest brother Patric and guest sister Ina.

Kanable says that she and the characters of her novel share many of the same philosophies but that ' s where the resemblances end Describing herself as a serious type of per- son, Kanable expects much from her writing and from herself. " I want this story to be the type that will be read for hundreds of years, " said Kanable as if her ' dream ' might not be that faraway.

For Wilson, practice can mean many thiings. Preparing a piece for an audition or performance is usually ttie motive, but he uses practice just to have fun, get away from people or just to provide an outlet for his emotions. Although Wilson enjoys most types of music, his favorite is jazz. And within its bounds, his favorite is improvisation. " That (improvisation) is probably the hardest to do with other musicians, but there I can let everything outside myself through my horn. " Besides playing, Wilson is interested in the composing side. A self-termed " serious musi- cian, " he would like to write music played by oth- ers serious about music. What Ted Wilson " Did For Love, " playing sax at the Home- coming haiftime will not be forgotten. Doug J Warren — Band 9 Belinda L Watson — French Club Marilyn G Weekly Rhonda K.

' " When I ' m acting before an audi- ence I just have to pretend nobody is in the au(dience, otherwise I see them and I ' m just me, not the character I por- tray, " Foust added. Foust says of all the types of plays she prefers a dramatic part. I like heavy drama parts because they ' re more serious and I get to portray a person that ' s not at all like me, " she com- pleted. As her eyes sparkled, Foust said laughingly that she ' s " always nervous on stage, " but she makes sure the audience never finds out.

Why would anyone from such a beautiful country want to live here? Rocio Martinez, from Guadalajara, Mexico, decided to attend this school for one year. Her parents encouraged her to come to the U.S. They consider education very important. Both of her parents are doctors, and her brother is currently attending a local college in Mexico. When at home, Rocio likes to ride horses, play tennis, go shopping, watch television, and be with her friends. Here she does many of the same things, only with more emphasis on shopping. Changing schools is difficult, and switching to a school where the students speak a different language is even harder. At first, Rocio had trouble understanding our language. She said, " It is difficult because there is slang, and some people speak with different accents. " Exchange student from Guadalajara, Mexico, Rocio Mar- tinez found no trouble in being accepted at school 150- ■ Underclassmen Christina Briltsan (11) Beth Brockmann (9) BobBrockmann(l 1) Jell Brooks (10) Marsha Brooks (1 1) Nancy Brolherton (11) John Brower(1 1) Arlene Brown (9) Carole Brown (10) Cindy Brown (10) Doug Brown (1 1) Georgia Brown (9) Glenn Brown (10) Jay Brown (10) DonBurlord(ll) Kalhy Burke (10) Michele Burnham (9) Theresa Burnham (11) Brian Burns (9) Laura Burnside (10) Kim Butcher (10) Underclassmen — 151 Tom Byrd (9) Mack Campbell (10) Annette Campos (9) Regina Campos (1 1) Stieila Canougti (9) LisaCarboni(IO) Tracy Carcione (1 0) Jerry Carpenter (10) Tanya Carpenter (1 0) MelanleCarr(IO) Michelle Carr (11) Bobbette Carter (10) Steven Casterline (9) John Caswell (9) Martha Caswell (10) Lora Caudill (9) Darren Caudill (11) DonChevlron(IO) MikeCheviron(lO) Todd Chin (10) Danielle Christenson (9) Dawn Christianer (9) Greg Clark (9) Robbie Clark (10) Todd Clark (9) Vince Clay (9) DeniseClaymiller(9) Lisa Cliche (10) Bobby Clouse (9) Terry Clouse (11) Debra Cole (1 1 ) Steve Cole (9) LisaColglazier(IO) Rocky Collins (10) Teresa Collins (10) Recovering with a sip of his malt, Dave Siebart had just stepped into the woman ' s restroom to speak with some- Despite the time and effort put in by Sam King and Jennifer Mann on the Freshman float, they still only received fourth out of four places in the competition.

Being able to twirl a baton, combine it with acrobatics, and keep a big smile on the face is part of being a baton twirler. These are some of the reasons Lora Miller has won more than twelve first place awards since she began twirling seven years ago. Miller attributes her success to hard work. " I practice one to three hours a night; at least an hour and a half though. " she said. In addition she performs with the New Haven Coquettes, the 1 978 regional champions. Inspired by her sister, Annette, Lora has been performing in the group for five years. " I like going to the competitions. I get to meet people from all over, " said Lora Whether going to competition or practicing, she still dreams of ranking high in state competition. " I kind of want to get in the top 1 5 at least, " she laughed.

Guenther has already won two scholarships towards the college of her choice, both from the News Sentinal for one hundred dollars each. As a Junior Anne has made great achievements and set high standards. She has attended two Indiana seminars for outstanding high school students. The first of these was the Hugh O ' Brian Seminar in Indianapolis, and the Richard Lugar Seminar at Indiana Central University. She was chosen to attend the seminar because she is number one in her class. In school Anne is a student council member and won the most improved student on the speech team.

Lockard has been cheering since her freshman year and hopes to cheer through high school " I like getting the crowd motivated and the team too, w hether they are winning or losing, " she said. Because she loves to sing, Lockard is a soprano in the choir. Last year at N.I.S.B.O.V.A., she received two firsts, one for solo and one for duet. Last year she toured with a group called Friendship and visited Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek. Dancing is another aspect of her life. She ' s been dancing tap and jazz for ten years, and currently makes and performs routines for Swing Choir. Keeping active is what makes Lockard want to get involved. " It ' s a good idea for people to get involved in things outside of school because it makes school go a lot smoother and you look forward to it, " she said. With this in mind, it ' s no doubt that she will be as active tomorrow as she is today.

Julie began playing the accordian when she was four, and by the tinne she was fourteen she had won the title of Indiana State Virtuoso Accordianist, the youngest accordianist ever to win this title. Natural talent seems to run in the Hyde family. " My brother will probably win the title at an even younger age than I was, " commented Hyde. Julie uses her talent by playing the piano with the swing choir, playing in the NISBOVA contest, accompanying people for auditions at PIT Theatre, Civic Theatre, and others. She was also the pianist for the Civic Theatre ' s production of " Cabaret. " The favorite of Hyde ' s achievements is a group of eight young accordianists, Julie calls the Accordianaires, of whom she is the director. Julie and her Accordianaires give performances for elderly people in numerous retirement homes.

He has been playing sports ever since he was a kid and likes football the best because " I like running the ball. " Ed qualified for AAU nationals in wrestling last year as a freshman. But he ' s unable to compete as a sophomore because of a knee injury early in the season and will be on a recovery program for the next 6 months. He won ' t be able to wrestle again but will continue to play football and track. The surgery consisted of taking out all but the rim of the cartilage in his knee. He says " Listening to rock music especially REO Speedwagon is what gets him up for a game. " Steger was a member of the starting football backfield. He will have to work hard to get his knee back to its strength of his sophomore season.

Junior Todd Ortner likes to play music. For the last six years, he has been playing guitar. " I started because . . . well, after my mother made me quit Cub Scouts, she suggested (made me) that I take up a hobby. " He decided on guitar, and now his mother can ' t get him to stop. Rock is at the top of his list of favorites, and is followed by " anything with a good beat " and " most music, anyway. " " We ' re just a group of guys who like to horse around. We don ' t have expensive equip- ment, it just gives us something to do, " he laughed. For the ' 79 Happening, Ortner organized a jug band called ' Jug City, ' that received a standing ovation for their performance. Playing has taught Ortner much about appreciation of good music, and his abilities as a musician, but he denies changing much because of his " hobby. " " I ' m not even after anything in particular, " he added. " But I guess I wouldn ' t mind if I got popular and made a couple million bucks here and there.

She started playing at St. Johns Catholic School and summer sottball. Her favorite sport is basketball because " That is challenging and there ' s a goal. " Her least favorite, although she doesn ' t compete in it, is boxing. She plans on going to college after graduating in 1981 and intends to play sports there if they have a team. She says her most important accomplishment to her was making the varsity basketball team at the end of her sophomore year. When asked, what gets you up for the games, she says, " Rowdiness. " Moyer not only excels in sports she excels in the classroom. She scored in the upper three percent of her sophomore achievement test.

" Athletics is one of the best things you can do for both the mind and body, " believes King. In addition to participating In football, wres- tling, and track, he is also interested in journal- ism. King, who is slated to be the editor of the 1980-81 Herald, finds journalism a challenge. " I think it ' s a great challenge. There ' s a lot of pressure put on a teenage journalist. " Unlike most who prefer to write feature stories, King says he simply likes " reporting the facts. " Another feature of King which sets him apart from other athletes is th e fact that he enjoys photography. " It ' s a good way to express, " said King. Still, an important part of King ' s life centers around athletics. " I find I like wrestling best, " he confides. King found planning his future was not an easy decision but finally decided in majoring in Journalism at Ball State University.

She enjoys doing wildlife scenes and animal " I ' ve done a bear, skunk, and a deer, " she recalled. Wolfe enjoys painting scenery in oils. She likes doing fall scenes best. Still life and winter scenes are what she likes painting the least. Both were disappointed that freshmen wer- en ' t allowed to take art courses. " I wish I could, " revealed Mattes.

Cheviron ' s tirst varsity letter came when, as a freshman, he was designated hitler tor the baseball team. He hopes to play catcher for the team this spring. " I like to hit people, " Cheviron said, explai n- ing why football Is his favorite. His second var- sity letter came after a successful season as a defensive end. Cheviron has also played basketball, on the freshman team, and is playing on the junior varsity. Though athletics take up much of one ' s time, Cheviron has managed to maintain an " A " average. " It ' s been my life long dream to go to Notre Dame, " Mike explains. " And if I don ' t get a football scholarship, then I ' ll have to have the A ' s. " Cheviron ' s outlook for next year is " State, " we may have the best team ever. As well as working out in sports, Mike Cheviron tries a hand at baking cookies.

All arounder Push yourself to your own limit, " advises freshman Brian Zuercher He has been running on cross country teams for three years. " My brother and coaches encourage me to run, " Zuercher said. Zuercher doesn ' t spend all of his time running, he finds time to keep up on his school work — keep up he does. He is in the top five percent in the current standing. He hopes to get a scholarship to college on his grades rather than his athletic ability. Zuercher plans to someday become an architect. Zuercher is also involved in Student Council, and plays the trombone in the freshman, marching, and stage bands. In his spare time, if he has any, he enjoys reading science fiction, playing ping-pong, bowling, and waterskiing. " Brian is just an all around good guy " summed up his older brother Greg.

This tits Stacey Biteman well. " She ' s our little runner, " said year- book adviser Suzi Fisher. " She runs home; we call her and she runs back. " Biteman is a leading candidate tor the editor- in-chief position on the Mirage. This has not been an enviable position the past few years, probably because of non-motivated staffers. " If I ' m editor, I can ' t yell at people to do this and that if I don ' t do it myself, " she said. Track is also an interest of Biteman ' s. She looks at it as a good alternative to volleyball and basketball, in which she can ' t participate because she is too clutsy. Biteman jokes, " It ' s the only sport I have! " The way a publication is run can be com- pared to a well-oiled machine. Different people combine in making the final product a year- book. " I think people will only work as hard as they want to, " she said. Hopefully, Biteman will provide the spark to start the yearbook machine.

Often, with two brothers and a sister, it would seem that competition has to happen, Norton feels this is not true, " Ron and I really have no competition at all; in football he ' s a receiver, and I play defense; in basketball, he ' s a guard and I ' m a forward. In the spring, he plays baseball and I ' m in track. " He continued, " We don ' t see each other enough to compete. " Competition goes outside the family for Nor- ton though, he thrives on it. Norton was a line- backer on the Bulldog ' s defensive football squad, which was the best in the conference. A lot of the team ' s defensive success can be attributed to the all-conference Norton who led the team in tackles. " The thing I like in athletics is the self-respect you get. " Elaborated Norton, " It ' s rewarding too — like all-conference; I really got a kickout of that. " Norton feels that he owes a lot of his success to his family, especially his father. " He ' s a good encourager, it makes me want to make him proud " Norton concluded. Athletics play a big part in Rick Norton ' s life. He broke the school record in high jump.

Child and drug abuse, and problems with violence are just a few of the subjects discussed in Pat Monaghan ' s sociology class. Rolling down the roods M lies and miles of America ' s National Parks have been covered by Pat Monaghan, Sociology teacher and football coach, on his Schwin Paramount. Monaghan has ridden in excess of 8000 miles on his annual cross country bicycle journeys. From Mexico to Canada and along the Pacific coast were a couple of his excursions. On the trips Monaghan found that human company was nice to have, but not essential. He plans his trips by looking through a picture book of America ' s National Parks. He tries to go to interesting places with beautiful sights. In determining who goes with him Monaghan doesn ' t pick the people, instead they pick him. If one is compatible and has the time, strength, determination, and money to go, they are welcome. Preparation for the summer trips begin in the early Spring with Monaghan riding 50 miles on weekends. During the journey ' s he rides at least 100 miles a day; the trips usually are around 1 000 miles long. His next trip will be to many Historic sites in the North-Eastern United States. Whether biking through America or just riding through town, Monaghan says to take care and " Don ' t get hit by a truck.

And when you speak with English teacher R. Lawrence Huff, you know he ' s one of those select few. With interests in meterology, photography, poetry and half a dozen other words that end in " y " . Huff is a versatile man. And with questions on great books sporadically interspersed with rages against welfare, bureaucracy, " Zoom the Broom, " and a thousand other " evils, " he is a volatile one. " If I had my way, the public school system would be totally changed, " he said. " Classes wouldn ' t meet every day, students and teachers could go out for coffee after a class, learning would take place outside the classroom. " Huff used some of his ideas when some of the students in Senior English went out for dinner and a night out at the Civic ' s production of Shakespeare ' s " As You Like It. " Through his classes, the educator expounds much of his philosophy. His classes " last forever " (or they ar en ' t worth teaching) and the students love it. " He goes over things really fast, " said Senior English student, Cecelia Falkenburg. " But also he ' s concerned.

He flits from his water colors, lands at the piano and plays with the touch of a concert pianist. He moves into some jazz, then lightly picks up a pencil and writes a poem. At Christmas time, Dave Tarr, with his magic, created a lovely partridge of blue in a pear tree, one moment, and 45 minutes later had painted 1 5 water colors depicting Christmas. By the time his preparation period was over he had delivered two of his best to the Journalism Department, and wallpapered the teacher ' s lounge with the rest of the paintings. His creativity fills the lounge nearly every day with something different. You may even find him standing on his head, dancing on a table or staging a fight to brighten up the day for the educators. Tarr ' s most recent work is a lovely painting of his daughter Jenny. The Tarr blue eyes are the first thing you see in the painting. He is entering the painting in the Ft. Wayne Art Show. " Seven Magic Stones, " is a book Tarr nearly has ready for publication, he has been sitting on for a while. " I don ' t know why, " says Tarr moving his long slender spider-like fingers up and down a full red beard that looks slightly overpermed. " I was the apple of my mom ' s eye, " he admitted with a grin. " I was born when my parents were older. My mom and Dad are ini their seventies. I ' m thirty, " says Tarr, with a genuine warmth and humor and smile. Tarr is a man who hasn ' t forgotten a religious up-bringing, is one who speaks the language of the intellect one moment, and breathes " I ' m a real cool dude, " the next — He is too.

During school Emenhiser supervises two study halls, after school detention, runs the offset printer, cashiers the lunch periods and sorts mail on a typical school day. She has been doing her job for four years. " I just wish more students appreciated it. " she said. When Ms. Busy has nothing better to do she spends her time as chairperson of a Catholic: group for divorced parents, lending support toi people who are looking to find friends. " I don ' t have much fun, " she said. " I don ' t go out and have fun. " Emenhiser finds time to take classes in the humanities at I.U. — Purdue. Lois has been extremely helpful to me, said: Suzi Fisher. " No matter how busy she is she-j always takes time to do my printing when I need it.

I verything you did was something special, it had to be the best. All [through the year you were there, reaching for the best. You were out at night trying to cram the most into hours that could never be long enough. You got up early for school, hopped into the shower, and made it to first period before the bell rang. All along, though, you picked something up. Designer clothes were in so you bought them. Converse or a racing stripe had to be on the tennis shoes or you were definitely out of it. Wrangler and Lee jeans were replaced with high fashion names — tight fitting styles and names like Calvin Kline, Jordache, and Gloha Vanderbilt. Not only were they high fash- ioned, but high priced. You were only too glad to pay the price because they made you look your best. World situations were definitely not at their best. The Iranian crisis brought fear of another war and arguments over the legality of the draft. But you didn ' t pay attention to much of what was said because it brought you down and made you lose sight of what you wanted. The price of gas kept rising higher and higher. It didn ' t stop you from driving to school. There was too much trouble involved in taking the bus, and finding a ride wasn ' t that easy. Besides, it allowed more time to do what you wanted to after school and added to your prestige among your friends. Female faculty members show their support for the varsity basketball team. Portraying mascots from local schools, they try to steal the trophy away from Vic the Bulldog 220 Closing Junior Sylvia Gratz pushes open the door as she makes her way into the auditerla. Business teachers discuss the hall decorations in the business hall 221 Winning seasons brought more exciting pep ses- sions than in recent years. Rising to their feet and clapping, Highlights Teresa Snyder and Tina Henry show their spirit. r ' _ • t 222 Closing Friends, Cliques, Conference Champs, Early Release All year long you tried to get others to like you. You wore the clothes tliey wore, you spoke the way they did, and you acted like all your friends. Sure, you were a part of the crowd, the clique, like the others, but you still were your own per- son, someone different fronn the others. It was a good year for these sports. The basketball team was conference champi- ons and even the football team reached higher in the standings. The winning teams brought more school spirit and better respect for the players. Pep sessions left something to be desired, especially for seniors with early dismissals. Besides going through her daily routine of going to class all day Julie Martins tielps out in the office. Sometimes all homework and reading can ' t be done at home. Ron Norton glances up at passing students while reading. Closing — 223 The Juniors at one of the pep sessions show their spirit by covering the gym with paper confetti. [EQaaDDdDog (?© ■GDq© B©St5 Pep Sessions, Speech Team, Food Fights, Graduation ir Though they weren ' t the best, the cheerleaders kept trying to improve them. With help from Coach Eller the Speech team moved on to better things. First place standings became a common event themselves placing in their respective events. Three members went on to com- pete in state. When one could no longer bring one- self to eat the cafeteria lunches at the end of the year, you found it convenient to throw it at the person across the table o: across the auditeria. The year was over. Sometimes yoL grasped what you reached for, othe times it was at your finger tips but yo could not quite take hold of it. Thing were better in most cases but sometime there were problems that didn ' t work out Though the year is over and done wit you will continue to " Reach for the Best. Sometimes appreciation is shown in strange ways. On the last day of student teaching tor Greg Mansfield, he had to make his way through TP 224 Closing ' e ' ' ' - , ■..
