The state-ranked Bulldog football team became volleyball Jill St. Peters bumpi the ball up so that another playe will continue the play. PVe Ve made it what it is The making of a year Fort Wayne found itself wrapped up in another at- tempted murder when Vernon Jordan was shot out- side of his motel room at the Marriott. It was not long until Fort Wayne was on nation-wide T.V. as the search for the would-be murderer went on. We needed some type of release to take our minds off the problems of the city and our own personal dilemmas to help us make our year alright and AC DC provided the opportunity to do so. Even with the strong numbers of the police force on. ,hand, the crowd swarmed in and filled the Coliseum to its capacity and you were among the numbers making that night a night Fort Wayne area rock fans would never forget. The year marked a new trend in fashion as girls wore knee length skirts with socks and loafer shoes. It was called the " preppy look, " and you wore the clothes, as well as the traditional Levis and popular T-shirts bearing any phrase that seemed appropriate. Throughout the year we tried to make the school something better, something we could say we made. When smoke filled the school from the flares, used in Stephan ' s Sadie Hawkins film, in the boys upstairs New courses are annually added to the curriculum. Some provide ad- vanced learning in cooking and unbelievably gym. Doug Jones was one of the students who gained add- ed knowledge in playing sports. We needed some type of release ...

We ' ve made it what it is The making of a year bathroom we knew it would become a part of the school, a memory that would not fade away as did the smoke. Yellow ribbons added a new dimension to the school and the student body as girls donned them in recogni- tion of the return of the Americans held hostage by the Iranians as President Carter left office. Classes made the problems of the world seem so small when you compared them to the trauma of writing a theme in Larry Huff ' s Senior English class on poetry or trying to cram for the test you had forgotten about the night before. Even the snake squirming down the foreign language hall on April 20th made up a part of the 1981 school year. And when Mr. Rogers came to visit New Haven High School at Happenings, not only was a new word learned, " dog bleep, " but a new part of the school was seen. We started out with a year and a building that had white walls with an orange stripe running around the tops of them and by May 27 we made it more than any ordinary school. We made it what it is: we made it New Haven High School. Band is an activity that starts in elementary and continues through high school. Scott Roller rests before playing again.

This means students must do their work in study hall, before school or during class. These students in- cluding Sue Peters, hurry to do their assignments during a break in choir practice. We ' ve made it what it is From the first d ay of school in late August until the last day of classes in late May, New Haven High School rumbled with a flurry of activities. Summer itself had lent a hand, allowing some to camp out in the mountains while yet others cracked helmets during summer football practice. Despite what one did, however, the action only multiplied in intensity as the Bulldog year began. Cracking the books early in the morning only paid off with the chance to stuff 784 kleenexs into the mesh on the homecoming float STUDENT LIFE or to sway to the sound of Styx later in the year at the Sweetheart Dance. Friday nights would not have been quite the same, as well, without the assistance of school friends, especially when the night brought AC DC to the Coliseum. Even a short cruise through Glen- brook Mall gave a person the needed break away from the sporatic studying for occasional English tests or the figuring out of problems for Algebra. And when it all came to a quick paced, almost disbelieving end in May, 278 seniors walked out of the school for the last time as students. Graduation left behind a lot of memories, but with each one, a student can honestly say, " We ' ve made it what it is. " • 1 After the marriage ceremony at Sadie Hawliins, balloons were released for all of the newly " hitched " couples. Dances were a popular attraction for a lot of students. At the Sweetheart dance, Julie Hill and Tom Haus square dance. Thoughts of sharing your first kiss. There were parties everyone went to. Some students spent their summer participating in or attending the races. One popular summer activity is waterskiing as is being demon- strated by this dedicated fan. IRT WAYNE CLUTCH 2424 • " GOSHEN ROAD 484-8505 Serene lazy days o£ one summer A cool summer night brings out the best in Greg Jones harmonica play- ing. As the final sun rays of summer slipped behind the horizon it was a chance to reminisce over the past three months and reflect over the many memories of what had happened. It was a summer to remember; things happened that could never have taken place at any other time of the year. The thoughts of sharing your first kiss with the person who had grown to be so important to your everyday life brought a warm feeling as the cool wind of the night swept by. There were parties that everyone went to. It had been nice to see some of the people from school that normally you hardly thought of. Playing volleyball and drinking brew were small parts of what made those days so much fun. Sometimes work forced its way into the summer scene. At times the thought of friends swimming at Jury Pool made it almost unbearable, but yet you made it through until the weekend. The most important thing of all was that whatever summer had brought, you had made it what it was. The memories were yours to make and yours to keep. Summer — 2 7 ' Books are a normal part of LeAnn Tatmiin ' s school life. Wondering what he should do now, Jeff King sits in the publications room waiting his next assignment. Back to the books not an easy task Summer had taken its toll ; it made it impossible to work. Just the thought of looking at a book was bad enough, but actually holding one in your hands was more than unbearable, it was sadistic. And it was only the second day of school and already the teacher had given a reading assignment. Following the groans let out by the class you got right to work, or at least you tried. Heaven knows that hitting the books after a long summer vacation would not be that easy. Opening the cover was more than you thought it would be. Just reading the title of the chapter was more work than done over the entire summer. But you still kept on going. It was fascinating to find that even after three months the words came back to you. After a while words like " the " and " if " really started to speed by. Then it happened, after what seemed like an hour you turned the page. Who ever said miracles never happen? 12 — Back to the Books It was only the second day of school and already the teacher had given reading. Back to the Books — 13 You tumble out of bed. You scramble through the hall dragging gym clothes. A mad rush o£ the early morning blues As the mournful tone of the alarm clock at 6:00 in the morning brings you into semi-consciousness you know this day is going to be just routine. Like every other school day, you tumble out of bed bringing a painful yelp from your dog as you land on his tail. Then you stagger across the hall only to find the bathroom occupied by your older sister. After a 25- minute wait you finally get in the cold water and the refreshing Coast deodorant soap which does not seem to work as well as it does on T.V. After the stimulating shower you creep to the kitchen for a bowl of Lucky Charms and milk. Halfway through your breakfast your mother yells " the bus! " You scramble through the door dragging gym clothes and last night ' s grammar assignment right behind you. Although you may have set a record running the 50- yard dash you still missed the bus. " Mom! " you yell as you wearily trudge back inside. Since you aren ' t lucky enough to have your own car your mother has to take you since you can ' t possibly have her car. After the embarrassing moment when people snickered at you for being chauffeured by " Mommy " had passed, you trudged into t he building. Your eyes popped as you realized it was 8:08!

Friends stood in groups talking about what do do that night and the following night. It seemed like only a few minutes from the time you found your way through the dark to your bed, till the alarm rang and it was the day of Homecoming. In a daze you rushed and made it to class before the first bell rang. And somehow you made it through the day. The pep session slowly awoke you. Spirit began to flow through your mind and a victory flashed before everyone ' s eyes.

Everyone left early to make sure they got a seat, and the stadium was filled before the pregame ceremonies even started. The Bulldog team took the lead early in the game while th e crowd stood on its feet and cheered them on. It seemed like before everyone sat down Woodlan had the ball and scored. And then they had scored again. The spirit began to dwindle as did the flames the night before and it seemed as if spirit week had been held for nothing. Then, New Haven had the ball and it was a touchdown. The spirit grew as had the flames of the fire. The minutes dwindled away until the final buzzer rang. The Bulldogs had won, , 27-16.

Practices go quickly; it is soon dress rehearsal. Problems with costume changes and lights are discovered and remedied. It nears the end. The curtain rises. Everything is ready. Actors and actresses exchange lines and comments. There are mistakes. Frustration mounts. After another mistake each turns to another for comfort. Some were chatting with each other and consoling one another like old friends. The curtain falls. Some tears are shed. Tomorrow the set will fall, but the friends made are forever; the end?

In the cold darkness you lie silently awake, patiently waiting for the dawn ' s loud crow or the sizzling of the morning bacon. You anxiously watch the hours come and the minutes go into a slow depth of time, then you realize the time has come. Cautiously walking down the long crowded hallway, your face loses all expression as you stop. Standing there your heart pounds as a high scream of joy outsounds the loud voices. It ' s your best friend who you ' ve known for years, the friend who was there when you needed her, who helped you achieve the most important years in one ' s life, someone you ' ve gone through the day with, through thick and thin and then ended it all by moving across town. You talk about the dates you had or the parties you have gone to or get into a deep conversation of the past, when you lived on the same block. All at once the bell rings. Big crowds of people hurry into their classrooms from the commons. As the two of you part into separate classrooms, a warm feeling appears, and you think how great life has been and think if there is no one else to share life with, then life itself would be a shallow experience, especially at shook Overjoyed expressions of the ' latest victory are shovk n by Teresa Newkirk, Karen Ashman, and Lisa Miller, School brings unexpected pleas- ures, especially to Sandy Krucke-J berg and Chuck Koeneman. ( Companionship Companionship — 25 Working for many students was just part of their everyday life. Being out on your own, earning your own money. Social life sacrifice: working for the big bucks Racing out the doors, you hurried to your car to go to your after-school job. Working for many students was just part of their everyday life; for others, it was just a way to pass their time away. " I work for the extra money, and because I like being around people, " stated Steph Robinson, an employee at Wendy ' s. Sometimes frustrating and some- times tiring, Kathy Zurbach rings up many Kroger customers each night. Cashier at Elcid, Betty Anderson fills her spare time doing various jobs. Long John Silvers ' employs many New Haven students. Greg Aurand and an ' 80 graduate do their chores during rush hour. Reasons for working varied, but the " norm " for most was, " I needed the extra money, " or " to get out of the house. " Many students worked at jobs which thev hoped to pursue after they graduated. Being out on your own, and earning your own money could help you become dependent on yourself in preparation for the big move out of the house. Decision making, getting yelled at, making mistakes and just doing your best were all part of doing your job. All in all working was not that bad, especially when payday came around and your boss handed over the paycheck. 26 — Working Working — 27 There was a plentiful supply of fun available if you knew where to find it. Different strokes any day of the week It may have seemed tough at times, and you probably heard a few complaints about it, but nevertheless New Haven did have some recreational activities to offer. And as we were relatively close to Fort Wayne, most students seemed to keep a fairly busy activity schedule. There was a plentiful supply of fun available if you knew where to find it. If you didn ' t use up all your energy in those 4th period activities like volleyball, basketball, or ping pong and needed to vent your energy you may have tried some of these activities passed on by other New Haven students. The bowling lanes in the area — namely Brunswich, Georgetown, and Lakeside — were popular with everyone. New Haven ' s only skating rink. Bell ' s, was a fun spot. Disco-skating provided a bit of a challenge here. And for many students who liked challenges, the bowling lanes, skating rinks, and arcades in the malls were popular hangouts. For the ones who just liked to sit and let others participat e, watching g ' mnastic meets, basketball games, and wrestling meets made for a nice evening. Or taking in a movie was also enjoyable. So as recreational activities go; different strokes for different folks. The ball flies back through the air and heads for the net, moving to return the ball is Todd Raugh. Teams are formed and games are played- Ed Wright serves the ball to score for his team. Recreational Activities Recreational Aclivilies — 29 Whether you went out with a date or group of friends, the weekend was here and it was time to enjoy nightlife. Friday night is alright any week The bell that rang at 3:10 on Friday meant more than the end of sixth period. For many students it signaled the arrival of the much awaited weekend. By 3:20 the school was almost empty and there were only a few cars left on the parking lot. Not quite record time, but nevertheless, the weekend was here and that was all that mattered to most. Friday and Saturday nights; date night, party night. Whether you went out with a date, a group of friends, or mom and dad, it didn ' t matter; the weekend was here and it was time to enjoy the nightlife! The weekend to some meant relaxation — Iving around the house, watching television, or munching on something tasty, a walk through the park, or just reading a good book that you had been meaning to get into for a long time. It meant time to think out your deepest thoughts, or just time getting to know yourself a little better. For some, the weekend was time to get " wild-n- crazy! " It was time to party- down, get rowdy, and keep the company of all your buddies and friends! Going out on a date, or just out with friends, everyone seemed to find something to do to fill an evening with fun and excitement. There was usually an athletic event to start off the night, sometimes followed by a dance in the school gymnasium. Many students instead picked up a bite to eat rather than attend a dance. Pizza Hut, Jimmies and McDonalds were popular hang-outs where you were bound to see some of your friends. Lots of students preferred not to stay in New Haven, and for that reason it was a good thing Fort Wayne is near by, where there were more than plenty of activities provided for fun and entertainment. The Holiday and Many excited fans " sat on the edge of their seats " during one of the action pacl ed basl elbali games. among them are Jay Brown, scans the crowd.

As you ' re lying on your bed awaiting for a cool breeze through the window of your room, you dread the weakness of your body from the weekend ' s practice and the routines of the daily schedule. The pounding beat of " Back in Black " blares into your unexpected thoughts, along with the tapping noises of your hands playing to the rock-n-roll music. The warm bottles of Segrum-7 await for the night and the concert to begin along with the anticipation of AC-DC and other groups of great taste. The rowdy teenagers of 1981 have also changed along with the popular music. Acid rock comes in with wild parties and the company of friends. We enjoyed music of all kinds. Even elders have that streak of pep and energy to enjoy it. The world will rock forever, and always will if we keep admiring it with moods of love or with moods of happiness and understanding. The Coliseum shakes with excitement every few months with satisfying groups. Ted Nuggent, Kansas, Kiss, The Cars, Van Hallen, ZZ-Top, Molly Hatchet and Blue Oyster Cult had performed at the Coliseum this year, and all appeared to be great successes. Music can be so many things that without it we would not continue the saying today; " Drugs, sex and Rock-n-Roll. " The French Club attended ; while on a field trip at the 1 ing Arts Center.

Media of the year: from Dallas to Eden to We find it in every facet of ur lives. It motivates us, akes us up and stirs our titellect. It keeps us nformed; it keeps us in 3uch. It does much more tian this; however, it ntertains us. Television caught the ttention of everyone in the ummer of 1980 when the ctors and actresses went on trike to protest the over use f their work and the nderpayment. The strike id more than give erformers a vacation; it also elayed the revelation of the uestion: Who shot J. R.? The riswer was revealed though (id with 76% of the viewing audience tuned in to see who the culprit was, the show became the most watched television episode in history. Kristin was the culprit and the show called " Dallas " was a hit. Television ' s cousin, the silver screen, too, was turning out her own types of entertainment. Viewers saw the return of Star Wars as " The Empire Strikes Back " hit the screen. Films like " Raging Bull, " a dramatic and nominee for several Academy Awards, and " Tribute, " found their way into the theaters. Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton banded together to come up with the film entitled " Nine to Five. " And perhaps the most amazing story is that of Neil Diamond, who was paid $5 million to write and record songs for the movie, " The Jazz Singer. " Acting in the film was part of the agreement. Even though a couple of songs became hits and the albums sold well, the movie flopped. Records make up another section of the media. The record business had its share of big news in 1981. After having just recorded an album entitled, " Double Fantasy " with his wife, Yoko Ono, John Lennon was shot and killed. Barbara Streisand returned with an album called, " Guilty. " The title song was recorded with Barry Gib of the Bee Gees and won a Grammy Award in 1981. Christopher Cross, however, swept the awards with his album, " Christopher Cross. " Books never gained a strong footing in 1981, but new works by authors such as Truman Capote could be seen gracing the book racks. With the television production of John Steinbeck ' s " East of Eden, " he, too became popular. Clans of students made car pools, and with inner tubes protruding out of trunks, headed for Franke Park. Christmas a wild time for vacation From " chestnuts roating on an open fire " to " Jack Frost nipping at your nose, " Christmas break is an occasion that is looked forward to by students, as well as the faculty. After a tedious week of Christmas programs and a can drive for needy families in the area, everything came to an end with the activities during the fifth and sixth periods. Films were shown in the auditeria, while others got down to the sound of AC DC in the gym. At 3:10 a sudden stampede was made toward every exit. Shouts of " Merry Christmas " and " Happy New Year " filled the air. Once outside, groups stood huddled together discussing plans for tubing and partying. As the buses were leaving and the cars eventually cleared the parking lot, students looked at the school one last time and realized they wouldn ' t be back until 1981. Most students engaged in at least one party during vacation, if not one every night. Clans of students made car pools, and with intertubes protruding out of car trunks, headed toward Franke Park for some tubing. A lot of precious vacation time was spent on returning presents, such as the shirt your mother gave you three sizes too big, thinking that you would fit into it after Christmas dinner. The malls drew in people with all of the after- Christmas sales. Every " Space Invaders " video game had a line behind it. Soon it was the New Year and most students again attended a party. Sleep was a new-found thing during this vacation, but soon it was back to getting up at 7:00, turning off the alarm, and jumping into the shower. Preparing themselves for the long slide downhill at Franke Park are a group of students from across the area. The Vachon family display a nativi- ty scene. 38 — Winter Break Sacks and boxes of canned goods were displayed before they were to needy families. Yuletide spirit was shown bv local businesses in decorating their buildings, such as Dair - Queen. Winler Break — 39 It was not long until the floor was sparcely covered with pairs swaying. Cupid s hand takes charge The bow was pulled, taut b ' Cupid ' s hand as he let his arrows fly until they pierced the hearts of everyone who attended the Sweetheart Dance. Who would have ever thought that the auditena could become a refuge for romance? As the couples entered the school they stared in awe at the change that had taken place. The tables had been cleared and the once bare block walls were covered with red hearts with the names of the couples sprinkled in glitter. Where there was once just a curtain there was now a band playing the tunes for the dancers. It was not long until the floor was sparcely covered with pairs swaying to the beat of Gandalf. And when the type of music changed from slow dances to rock the couples moved off the floor to find a dark quiet space where they could be alone. Meanwhile, a line was forming outside of the dance area where couples stood waiting for their turn to have a picture taken by Tom Walker of Walker ' s Studio.

New Haven: a town of pep and pride Small stores like Barretts are a con- venience for many people. Every big city has a suburb of some type. Chicago is surrounded by suburbs; New York, Los Angeles and even Boston have their respective suburbs. Fort Wayne, too, may have a suburb, but it isn ' t New Haven. New Haven is a city with its own ideals and values, its own goals and strengths. New Haven is also a town of closeness. Friends and neighbors enjoy the life of a small town, yet they also like the closeness of a larger city. As a town and community New Haven sticks together, win or lose. This past football season many New Haven businesses supported the Bulldogs in their winning ways. The businesses in this small town are also small. Coffee shops like the Briar Room have been a meeting place for people for a number of years. The little grocery stores, like the Friendly Market, are still good to run to if someone is out of milk. Businesses have come a long way, too. Perhaps the oldest business in New Haven is the E. Harper and Son Funeral Home. This business has been in continuous operation since the purchase in 1889. Today, the Harper ' s have new surroundings not far from New Haven High School. The Purvis Drug Stores have been in operation for a number of years back as far as 1912. This growing town though is more than just a Although it ' s not big the town; Post Office is a great convenience. The Kinder Care Center and Harper ' s Funeral Home are a part of the town ' s changing scene. Just outside of the town are fields of corn ready to harvest each fall.

It is a town of pride and spirit. Each year New Haven grows in size as well as in the number of businesses. Mexican food was introduced to the New Havenites with the addition of El Cid restaurant, which is located in a building wh ich once housed a gas station. Magilla ' s Dining Lounge was also added to the town. Shopping centers began popping up, and the town of New Haven was growing. No matter how big it was growing though, many people still enjoyed the small shops where they could still converse with friends or the little shops where they could go to avoid the large crowds at the malls. Rising prices, though, forced the closure of a number of New Haven businesses. Kentucky Fried Chicken, once home of New Haven ' s finest pancakes, gave into the overbarringness of inflation, V.M. Shoe Store closed its doors and other shops were bought and the names changed. Inflation though could never keep New Haven down and soon it would be back fighting the battle with the best of them. New Haven is an individualistic place with places to go for enjoyment. Building, growing and sharing are what makes New Haven the town that it is. A stop after work to one of New Haven ' s many fine beauty salons is common for some women. When most people are at work, the streets of Highland Terrace are almost empty. Once known as Blackwell ' s, this lit- tle store is still popular in town today. 44 — New Haven, the lowrt, feature jpSves onjt $idewal New Haven, the town, feature — 45 It seems the biggest attraction is use. Music is the major life-line to every students ' life. Musicland sells many records to students.

Shops, though, do give a helping hand Cruisers s troll malls for great buys and hods Shopping for that new designer pair of jeans or that unique gift from Spencers wasn ' t always for the purpose of obtaining the merchandise. Many students headed to the malls and shopping centers for the atmosphere. What is it about the malls that caused people to use their last gallon of gasoline, fight traffic and find a parking place? The logical answer would be to shop for clothes, to get something to eat or even to brouse. That would be the logical answer, but in this case it ' s not the right one. It seems the biggest attraction to the malls is use. Many people walk carelessly up and down the malls looking for a chance to see that 10 of lO ' s. Many hours can be spent in pinball places, record and novelty stores hoping to see that special guy or girl. Students of NHHS said many times they went to the mall with no money and the ones who did go with money usually ended up buying something they really didn ' t want. So why did they buy it? To get a chance to talk to that great looking blonde behind the counter. Then there ' s the long ride home. A chance to think, " I should have asked her out. I ' ll never see her again; the worst that could have happened was she could have said no. " But you didn ' t. And so another day in the mall cruiser ' s life comes to an end. 46 — Shopping I Malls Exciting electronic games distract students and they become involved in the games for hours on end.

Sadie Hawkins just wouldn ' t be right if it weren ' t for Norm Stephan ' s " Movie of the Year, " which has become a tradition. After the fair, the twosomes entered the gym for some knee-slapping, high- stepping square dancing. The highlight of the evening is the huge wedding conducted by Chuck Henke, alias " Marryin Sam.

Flood lights flashed on the auditeria stage and the audience murmur went near silent. Chuck Henke, choir director and organizer of the event, stepped out. " Hey, it ' s a happening, " he said and a night of glamour and talent took place in New Haven High School. It was sure a happening, especially for the performers on the stage. From the soft ballads to the heavy metal sounds to the dancing girls. Happenings was more than a talent showing. As an annual tradition at one point in the show, members of the high school faculty — students resem- bling members of the faculty, that is — were visited by Fred Rogers and interviewed about life at New Haven High. Later, the soft voices of performers representing the folk music scene filled the auditeria with melody. Two rock bands made the crowd go wild with excitement — an excitement that really didn ' t cease throughout the rest of the show. Happenings ' 81 took the audience by surprise.

Students in Campus Life took their annual trip to Ormand Beach, Florida, and visited Disneyworld and River Country. Other than Campus Life students, seniors traveled to Daytona and Fort Lauderdale. Florida wasn ' t the only state being invaded by NHHS students: Ohio, Michigan, Arizona and Illinois. As for the students who stayed home, some traveled from house to house where the parties were.

Decked out in the traditional tuxedos and long dresses on May 2 couples made their way to the dance floor where they danced to popular tunes by " Headwind, " a group formed by graduates of New Haven High School. Bowling, a popular after- prom activity, was a change of atmosphere for every couple from love and romance to wit and frivolity. It was fun just to watch some of the people who couldn ' t bowl try a shot at it. Whether you went to the lake on Sunday or stayed home to sleep those hours you missed the night before, memories of prom night will last a lifetime for those who attended.

What had been planned for and worked towards for over a year became a reality to those who had been involved with " The Sound of Music. " The musical received a standing ovation each night it played. It took time and a lot of effort to get to those ovations, however. Dennis Eller, with the help of Charles Henke, chose the large cast prior to Christmas vacation in 1980. For some it was hard to face the reality of not being chosen for the leading roles. Others accepted it and began working on the production. Still others left. The cast established, the directors and their assistants, Janet Leffel, costume director; Jim Kirkton, set director; and Natalie King, the children ' s musical director, all began working in their respective areas. Crews of students were organized to help the directors. Each crew took to their assignments and walled themselves in; never coming out to observe their fellow workers or crews. All too suddenly there came the question of who was working the hardest. Everyone had an answer to the question, too: " Me. " The scenery as well as the backdrop helped add to the effect of the musical. 56 — Spring Musical Curt Ladig ' s portrayal of Captain Von Trapp earned him the award of Best Ac- tor in the musical. While every lead may be difficult, hav- ing to sing makes the role even harde as Nancy Sickafoose found out. Spring Musical — 57 Through the direction the magic struggled on, and by the musical ' s conclusion, tears shed were tears of happiness. All-out production Amy Zimmerman portrayed one of the seven children of Captain Von Trapp. It was not just the individual it was the teams of cast and crew, of directors and assistants that brought the musical to life. The magic, too, of " The Sound of Music " was beheld only by the audience. Hammers of discontent pounded at the backstage magic and destroyed it. The fun, the magic had been snuffed like a candle in the wind. A few had been shielded from the pounding though Nevertheless, " The Sound of Music " was a masterpiece of direction, from all angles. Through this direction the magic struggled and by the musical ' s conclusion, the tears shed were not tears of relief, nor were they tears of broken heartedness. Rather, they were tears of happiness for the three ovations and tears of sorrow for the seniors who had given their final performance, and tears for the end. Karen Eller captured the hearts of the audience as she bid them farewell. Anne {Mother Abbess) Guenther ponders her next line during the course of the show. A last chance to be with those friends who had made high school so special. Last dance ' for exiting seniors The night was indeed Donna Summer ' s night. It was the night of the Senior Dinner Dance and it was " The Last Dance. " For the seniors who came it was their last chance to be together as fnends and as New Haven ' s class of 1 98 1 . The night was reserved for Seniors only. No underclassmen were allowed. After a dinner of ham or chicken, the senior class awards were presented. A few of the recipients may have been less than pleased with the results but " it was all in fun. " With the conclusion of the awards it was time for the band. Music blared and seniors danced. At long last they could dance with the girl or guy they had eyed all four years. Mostly, however, it was a dance for friends. A last chance to be with those friends who had made high school so special. The night passed quickly, though, as song after song was played. A few people left early to begin their graduation celebrations. Some couldn ' t even wait for the dance to begin and entered the dance hall as celebration lingered in the air. No matter how the seniors entered, they left happy. They had joined in an exclusive celebration with their friends. The next day they would graduate. Before that, though they would practice and then picnic at Franke Park, trying desperately to make the most of the time remaining. Time did not stop and it came between the seniors and made them graduates. Between today and yesterday, it came between them all.

The absence of the air conditioner; made the waiting for the parents ; little harder. 62 — Graduation There is that feeling of accomplishment for having completed a grueling 12 years. Long awaited class line-up Once a year a group of students will gather in an auditorium, gymnasium or coliseum to perform that age old ritual of graduation. The parents weep for the success of their children, grandparents will beam with pride knowing that " Junior " has grown up and is the graduate. The feelings of the graduate may be ones of jubilant excitement. They may be feelings of sadness, because of the loss of friends or a way of life. However what the graduate may be feeling is a question that the graduate must ask himself. Without a doubt there is that feeling of accomplishment for having completed a grueling 12 years of his life. Some might reply to this — " You ain ' t seen nothin ' yet, kid! " In his response. Associate Superintendent Robert Holt, told the 1981 New Haven graduates they were now off welfare.

They were graduates and Hke every graduate that ever crossed a stage and was handed a diploma they were gonna tackle the world, they were gonna be somebody. The future would hold the answer to these statements, but the key to their success was the belief the ' 81 graduates placed in their dreams. Any one of them could tackle the world and any one of them could be somebody. All it would take would be one dream believer. When the grads at last walked out the doors after listening to speeches that ran well over their allotted time, after reviewing in their minds the events of the past few hours, they knew it was over. Time had forced them to move on, as it always would, to the world of tomorrow.

Many of them carried the moods of the day, some of them being pleasant and yet others not so good. But whatever the expression, it was always reassuring to know that someone, maybe just around the next corner or walking beside in the hallway, shared many of the same sagas.

No great food fights erupted in the auditeria and national topics such as busing were never a topic concerning us. Still, when looking back at all that did happen in the course of the year, people can conclude " we ' ve made it what it is.

At the end of the 16-week season, the team had plac- ed third in the conference, the highest any New Haven High School team has ever placed. Dur- ing the same time period, Mrs. Voder ' s volleyball team defeated state-ranked Harding, a proud vic- tory for the girls and the school. Rain poured and bitter cold wind chilled all present as the We ' ve made it what it is SPORTS undefeated Bulldog football players humiliated East Noble in the final game of the season, 21-0. Later in the year the basketball team hit a seven-game winning streak, only broken with a loss to the Northrop Bruins in action- packed, barn-burner sectional play- Hurdles and high bars doned the track in the spring as the track team left the gymnasium for com- petition on John Young Field. The entire sports aspect of 1981 had been challenging, interesting and perhaps rewarding. But with each event, participants and spec- tators could feel, we ' ve made it what it is, as we did. Much strength and practice are needed for a good hurdler; Scott Workman is one of New Haven ' s best. Cross Country requires long distance running which results in sore muscles. Brad Harding rests while attending to his knee. ' ' IW . . » . ' f i i: Killer Dogs The goal. The feat. The milestone that has never been accomplished before was accomplished this season as the New Haven Bulldog football team com- piled a 10-0 record. They were ranked 25th in the state in the pre-season polls and were picked to win the NEIAC Conference title. They beat each team they played and when Homecoming weekend rolled around, they were ranked 7th in the state. The Homecoming game found New Haven behind the Woodlan Warriors going into the 3rd quarter but New Haven ' s drive and determination put the Bull- dogs ahead, defeating the Warriors, who were also ranked in state. New Haven continued their excellent football play, beating every team that challenged the ' Dogs. They were ranked as high as third in the state and were receiving area and statewide rec- ognition. New Haven ' s only competitors were the East Noble Knights who, up to their seventh game, were undefeated and were battling neck and neck with the Bulldogs for a share of the conference title, but New Haven kept up their win- ning ways and East Noble kept losing, three games in a row, including their last game to New Haven, and the Bull- dogs had the NEIAC Conference title to themselves. New Haven produced nine all-con- ference players at 10 positions. Several players received all-area recognition and Rick Norton received All-State honors. 1 10 - Varsity Football Variill luolMIHtcard Angola Carri-ll Blufflon DcKalb Woodlan Homi-Mi-Jd Bi-llmonI Si;ulh Adjms Columbia Ciey East Noble- PLAYOFf CAME From row G Bearman, C.

Junior Julie Van Tilburg had this to say, " It (the year) was disappointing; last year we got along a lot better. " The 13-12 record was not one of the greatest for Coach Kay Yoder. Last year her girls were conference champs and went undefeated through the confer- ence season. This year she also had something else on her mind — a baby. The team members generally felt that when Yoder was supportive, they did well. " Sure we did well when she sup- ported us, " said junior Chris Yagodin- ski. " Everybody believes what she says, " contributed Denise Pickett, also a jun- ior. " She really knows the game. " Pick- ett continued, " Any pregnant woman has a lot of stress on her. That ' s gonna affect the team. " Another of the team ' s problems was that they were young; " We really lacked senior power, " said Mary Kay Moyer, one of the three seniors on the squad. Statistically, the girls were successful on 1039 out of 1174 serves for an 89 per- cent average. Three hundred and thirty nine spikes were successful out of 549 attempts for a 73 percent team average.

Senior Pam Fox led in percentage, hit- ting 84 percent of her attempts success- fully. The most consistent server on the team was junior Shelly Steager who served 92 percent of her serves success- fully. Probably the team ' s high point was its win over state ranked Harding. The win came in the Harding Invitational. Beating Harding was the team ' s " Big- gest triumph, " according to Pickett. Before the win over Harding, Harding defeated the girls in New Haven ' s gym. The win helped to change the attitude of the team. " Yoder was really suppor- tive that game, " Pickett said. Year end awards were given to Pam Fox for Most Improved Player, Picket for Best Mental Attitude, and Steager for Best Serving Percentage. Sometimes volleyball can be a little turned around.

The starting six included Todd Fritcha, Mike Whitney, Brad Graham, Jeff Lothamer, sopho- more Shawn Martin and Bob DeWalsche, who was elected to first team All Conference and also leading the team in spikes. The team, now in its third year, has won more matches than any other year. Coach Johnson commented, " Although we did not have a winning record, did not indicate the capability of our team. I felt matches could have been played better, but I think we played as good as any other team.

The season started off on a good note as they beat two top teams, Harding and Concordia. The rest of the season was full of ups and downs as they won a few and lost a few until the last part of the season when they had an impressive six game winning streak. Some of the teams New Haven was beaten by were top ranked Southside, Northside and Homestead. New Haven did well in the NEIC Tourney as they beat Columbia City their first game 57- 46, but were beaten by Homestead 71-48. Wednesday, February 26, 1981 at the Sectional 1 game at the Coliseum against Northrop, the Bulldogs had their ups and downs also. The first quarter was pretty well neck and neck as the Bruins led by one, 14-13. New Haven came back and led by as much as 11 points, but blew their lead as Nor- throp stormed back to within three at the half, 29-26. Northrop came out in the third quarter to take a 43-49 lead as they hit every outside shot thev took. Northrop, not known for its outside shooting, only shot 43 percent from the field this season. It wasn ' t an easy win for the Bruins; the New Haven drive kept them hustling and on their toes throughout the game. Robbie Clark scored an impressive 27 points while Tom Haus had 16 and Ron Norton followed with 10. The rest of the season went prettv well the Bulldogs way as thev won seven of their last 10 games. New Haven finished third in the NEIAC with a 6-3 record and a 13-8 record overall. The leading scorer was Robbie Clark as he had a 17.3 shooting average.

The season was definately a building season for the majority of the team at least; only two of the varsity girls had previously any varsity experience. " This year, we had to get everyone used to playing, " Stairs said. Through the disappointments of the long season, Stairs felt that her girls never lost their intensity and desire. " They were the best group of girls to coach, " Stairs said. " Even though we didn ' t have wins, they didn ' t give up on me or themselves. " Stairs herself took a big step up when she was selected for the coaching posi- tion, left vacant by Dan Lose. Her previous coaching experience was be- ing an assistant at the New Haven Junior High. " It (the season) was definately a learning experience for me this year, " she said. Leading the team in scoring was junior Shelly Steger, whose 195 points averaged out to 10.8 per game. She also had the high scoring game of the year with a 21 point performance. The re- bound leader was sophomore Karen Moyer. She pulled down 135 for a 7.5 per game average.

" " We did pretty well this season, " said Mary Schrader, a member of both the junior varsity and varsity girls ' basket- ball teams. Schrader and her teammates had put in many hours preparing for such a season. Not only did the girls practice each night after school, but also put in an additional three hours Saturday morning or afternoon — an especially hard feat, according to Schrader, after a Friday night game. Some practices for the junior varsity girls involved scrim- mages against the varsity team. The long hours and challenging scrimmages of practice seemed to pay off, especially when the team pulled out from a " slump " and won a game, such as was the case against Garrett. " We had a pretty tough time, " Schrader said of the New Haven Gar- rett overtime ordeal. " We were down, and when everyone got going, we were up. " As reflected throughout the entire season, no one lady Bulldog ran away with the Garrett game. " We worked as a team, and that ' s why we won a lot, " said Schrader. Reserve Girls Basketball Team.

The screaming crowd, the encouraging yells from your teammates are gone — everything is silent except for the beat of your own heart and your coach ' s occasional directions. The pre-match butterflies are gone now and you realize what the weeks of agonizing practices were all about. The Saturday morning workouts and the aching muscles ail seem worth it now, because the wrestler is a special breed of athlete. The only dependen- cy you have on your teammates is that they work you hard enough to make you the best wrestler you can be. When you ' re out on that mat, you ' re alone with your opponent, and if you win, lose or draw you have no one to blame or to congratulate, but yourself. At the wrestling banquet, Kevin Harper received the David N. Pickett Memorial Award for Most Valuable Wrestler. Chris Thompson received awards for Most Improved and Hustler of the Year. Jeff King received trophies for most pins and, along with Harper, most points. The Bulldogs ended their season with a 4 and 6 record. Two outstan- ding Bulldog wrestlers, Chris Demetriades and Chris Neher, went on to Semi-state. Varsity Wrestling — 333 Life at the top A grizzly looking bunch of jocks, but these gruesome looks are part of their psychological warfare on their opponents. " On my way to the top. " That ' s the thought of many Junior Varsity athletes. Just a httle bit more practice, a little more dedication and a little bit more experience is all he needs to make Varsity. But one thing the JV or the Varsity athlete thinks about is that if there wasn ' t a JV team, the Varsity wouldn ' t be as good as they are now. The Junior Varsity athlete works hard to make the Varsity, which in turn makes the Varsity athlete work his butt off to keep his spot on the squad. There is no exception for wrestling. It is much easier to lose your spot on the Varsity wrestling squad than in most other team sports. In wrestling when you are on Varsity, you actually prac- tice against JV wrestlers in your own weight class. And when you see how hard he is working, you know that you have to work even harder or else you are going to lose your spot. Outstanding JV wrestlers were sophomore Tim Laurent 5-0, Chris Thompson 3-0, Tony Nahrwald 7-1, and Don Woodruff. 334 — ]V Wrestling JV wreslJing le;iin: Coach Hank NIetert.

Potential Plan This year Robbi Bultemeier had been hoping for first place in conference for her team, but due to the broken hand of Gail Rhoades and the illness of Laurie McMillen and Kathy White, the team had not yet reached its full potential. The lady Bulldogs got a lot of help and encouragement from Coach Bultemeier and Assistant Coach Dean Rodenbeck. The girls practiced 12 hours a week, Monday thru Saturday. They had a choice between all four events but had to pick two events. There were 13 meets altogether. New Haven girls have won four optionals and five intermediates. All the girls tried hard to set goals for themselves, according to Bultemeier. They wanted everyone to be proud of them and at the same time get some self-satisfaction. ' T ' m proud of the girls and they have done a nice job, " said Bultemeier. She also said that this is the best year the team had ever had. Butlemeier hoped that New Haven would have the highest scores during sectionals, and she wasn ' t too disap- pointed as Julie Hoover placed second on intermediate bars with an 8.2 and with Kathy Krueckenberg going to regionals after getting a third place on intermediate beam with a score of 7.9 at sectionals. When asked who had improved the most since the beginning of the year, Bultemeier said, " Well, it ' s really hard for me to say ' cause all the girls have had so much improvement. " Gymnastics — 237 Right on track For the third consecutive year the track team knelt on their knees about the legs of Coach Monaghan and said a prayer of thankfulness for their NEIAC victory. And when the amens were said, cheers broke out from the team and faded into the night. " It goes back to three years ago, " commented Monaghan on the Bulldog ' s victory at the conference meet for the past three years. " It ' s been three years since it started. They like to win. They had a goal and it was achieved, " Monaghan concluded. The Bulldog track team scored 129 points for their NEIAC victory. The boys had surpassed their closest oppo- nent. East Noble, by iVi points. Dog members managed to score in every event but two and pulled out second place in seven events at the conference meet. Senior Rick Norton fared well in the 1981 season. Norton broke the Bell- mont meet high jump record with a six foot nine and a quarter inch jump. Nor- ton ' s Bellmont jump fell short of his record seven-foot jump made during the same season. Monaghan felt that perhaps the most outstanding thing which happened with the track team was when Shawn Martin broke the pole vault state record, previously set by Vernasko of Snider, prior to the ' 81 season. " The thing to note, " said Monaghan, " was that Martin was only a freshman at the time and he was breaking a record set by a senior.

On the run The girls ' track team had a 2 and 4 season this year, but Dave Mulligan, head coach, said this could have been improved greatly if the team would have had more depth. The team this year set eight records out of 13 events which shows the quality of this year ' s team. There were 31 girls out this year, with no seniors on the squad. Coach Mulligan also felt the girls have shown a lot of effort and hard work which showed in their performances in the conference meet. The girls took five first place finishes, two sixth place finishes and a tie for third place. Julie Van Tilburg ' s third place finish in the 800 meter run earned her a chance to 140 — Girls ' Track run in the Fort Wayne Regionals. An outstanding performance was put forth by Denise Pickett, who got the Most Valuable Award. Denise set the record in the discus with a throw of 106 ft., 5 ' 2 in. She was also on the record- setting 400 meter relay team; she ran the race with a time of 51.7. One of the records set this year was the 400 meter race with a team of Jamie Hubbart, Denise Pickett, Kathy White and Robin May. Wendy Raver also set a new record in the 800 with a 2, 22, 5. Kathy White ran the 200 in 26.8, which was also a new record. Another record was set in the 1600 meter relay by the team of Gayle Beard, White, Raver and Van Tilburg.

Every activity takes time and practice and the girls on the tennis team found out just hovf much work it takes to keep a winning season going. According to Coach Connie Wharton the girls prac- ticed every day unless they had a meet. If the meet was cancelled, due to weather or some other factor, the girls found themselves on their own courts in or out of doors, practicing for the next meet. Wharton said she feels the girls have learned more than skills in tennis while participating on her team. " The girls have not only improved in their games but also in their attitude and enthusiasm this year. " A sophomore and a junior turned out to be the outstanding players of the team in Coach Wharton ' s eyes. These two girls are Tina Strader and Tina Moore, respectively. " Tina Moore has been very useful for her singles and Tina Strader has done well at both singles and doubles, " said Wharton. While the girl ' s tennis team had hoped to win the conference meet early in their season, victory slipped out of their reach. The girls came out of the conference meet with a six-two record. 146 — Girl ' s Tennis Girl ' s Tennis — J47 Surprising season Becoming NEIC Champions was not the result of haphazard golfing.

The spirit seekers Cheerleader hysteria is shown by Rich Gongaware (Vic) and Teresa Newkirk at a home game. Yeh! Rah! Ah, the sweet and easy life of a cheerleader. Show up at the game on time, look pretty, and yell your little . . . ahem . . . pompons off. This is the idea many students and parents of the school community had of our cheerleaders. The idea, though it isn ' t totally wrong, is a little shallow. Cheering on weekends was a big part of the squad ' s functions, but just as much time was spent preparing for the big game as the actual cheering. After school practices, night-time meetings and occasional school-time work ses- sions added up to form the final pro- duct — a well-performed game. The cheerleaders ' year began in the Spring of 1980 with the annual elec- tions. Five girls were voted to the Varsi- ty and Junior Varsity squads. This year marked the end of the five cheerleader format; next year the varsity squad will contain six girls. The girls started off the year well by winning a cheerleader contest at the mall in the fall. J.V.

Some days it seemed the list of classes would never end. We sat staring at the clock at times, waiting for 3:10 to roll around. Other days sped by as if we had just ran through the door to first period as the 8:10 bell rang, Who would have believed that someday we would actually find ourselves listening and even ACADEMICS becoming interested as Mr. Huff talked about The Grapes of Wrath in American Lit? Though the classes seemed slow at times, where would we have been if it weren ' t for them? Would we have ever made that friendship with the per- son sitting in the seat behind or would have we ever asked out the cute date across the room, had it not been for school? As the year and classes ended, each one left a special memory of what had happened. We ' ve made it what it is — each class, each day, each special event at New Haven High. Orientation is required for freshmen; Scott Eckelbarger, Amy Howard, Mary Kiebel, and Michelle Robling are some of the students. Concentration and study time are needed to achieve a good grade in the Health course which Bill Lombard must take as one of the required courses. A day-in-day-out required routine " I will have been being tortured for two hours by the time help arrives. In this sentence we use the first person singular, the future perfect progressive plus passive and the progressive tense. " " Ten laps around the gym, then do at least 50 sit-ups. " " What was the Spanish Armada, and how does it affect our lives today? " These are the " requireds, " the day- in-day-out classes that keep us asking the same question; what am I doing here? Although the answer may not oc- cur at this moment, the answer is simp- ly to graduate. The classes begin in the Freshman year. Frosh students are exposed to such courses as reading for enjoyment and orientation. Of course there is also physical education; you learn that you are not getting younger. Even those 10 sit-ups are a struggle unless you get lucky or you are a jock. Sophomore year is characterized by speech class. Some of the classes learn to write speeches and to speak in public while still others learn to make projects. Junior year marks the beginning of another history class. It is in this class that we again learn that Washington crossed the Delaware and that Betsy made the flag. One good thing about history — there ' s rarely anything new. Senior year — the last chance to be a kid. Enjoy life before life takes hold and reality sets in. It, however, is marred by government, psychology, and sociology. With courses like these it makes one wonder if moving on is a good idea. In Algebra II, Nancy Lothamer and Ricky Roberts are working at preparing a daily assignment. In Algebra H, Dawn Lee busily tries to get her work done before class begins as she didn ' t find time to do it earlier. 154 — Remired Courses At the teacher ' s desk Dawn Lee, Debbie Martin, Chris Sharts, Joe St. Henry and Barry Burns turn in their daily work. Fifth period gym class waits for another game of dodge ball to start. Required Courses -- 155 And then there were electives After partying into the early hours of the nnorning, after working on a term paper until you saw the sun rising, after cruising the town after opening night of Up the Downstaircase there was always something to wake up to ... classes. It was apparent there was no way out of them. No matter how late you got to bed the night before, they were always there to greet you in the morning. What made it seem even worse was that one small point, you had chosen most of the classes. But through all the classes that seem- ed like a result of poor judgement, you managed to choose a few that you real- ly didn ' t mind going to and some that you even found enjoyable. It was not very often that a teacher would have an open discussion like the ones in Mr. Huff ' s American Lit. or have someone like Mrs. Holt who would occasionally have a gripe session where one could voice his opinion about what was going on in the school. No matter what was said about the classes, you did manage to get something out of them. Learning to burn three pans of hot chocolate at once from Mrs. Leffel during Foods could prove to be a real boost in reaching one ' s goals for the future. You passed your time counting away the minutes during Luenburger ' s Geography. You slept away the hours in study hall. You listened attentively in Senior English in order not to get lost. You made the classes what you wanted them to be. You made them what they were. In Advanced Speech, Mary Payne and Curt Ladiji act out parts to prepare them before doing it ii front of people. Holding the camera is Curt Esterline as he prepares to snap a picture in Mr. Huff ' s photo class. In art, Nancy Wolfe and otKer students work on their art feature projects. Art is not just drawing and painting now a days. EleclivcCourffs In science class, Chris Cady and a few other students find a few minutes to talk and laugh before class begins. Media Center a popular refuge All around on the outside, voices ring out loudly, but once they enter through the doors of the Instructional Media Center — more commonly known as the IMC — they all stop as if they had suddenly walked into a morgue. Students huddle together at the odd- shaped tables studying their German while others glance through the latest issues of Newsweek and People. Even others s earch the rows of books, trying to decipher the card catalogue numbers for that one needed resource to be used in the English research paper. Casually glancing around, one might think the only services the IMC provid- ed were the checking out of books and the distributing of popular magazines, as well as a quiet refuge for students escaping study hall and occasional classes. Although not in plain view, however, a newly acquired laminator provided the IMC with an additional service — additional to xerox copying, dry-mounting and film developing from behind the scenes of the main library arena. Eighteen visits were granted to study hall students each nine weeks in the form of " media passes. " Students who wished to work in the IMC could do so as media aides, permanently opting of course, a study hall. After sitting in the library for awhile, most students tend to drift off. Tina Strader wearily studies, however. Absorbed in the daily routine of studying, Dave Renninger and Craig Eakright do their part in enriching their minds. 158 — Library Having been just assigned to do a panel discus- sion, speecli students rush to find sources of information. feS ' J Students are seen gathered in groups for conver- sation.

Marching, 1 puffing, life of the band Is it a foghorn? Is it a jet plane engine? No, it ' s the New Haven High School Marching Band coming down the street. After hours of practice, the band found itself marching down the streets of Fort Wayne, New Haven, Columbia City and other towns and actually placing in the competition for trophies and money prizes. But to the disappointment of the band members, the streets were the only place they earned high rankings. Even after standing on the football field for what seemed like an eternity, being bitten by every insect one could think of, the band was only able to pull off a second division in field marching at NISBOVA. Learning to march was only a small part of what the band members went through in order to try and make a good show for contest. After going through band camp, one ' s lips felt as if they were about to fall off, because of the constant playing of their instruments. The classroom aspect of band was far different than what the band members were used to after a summer of marching. Instead of being threatened with push-ups, they soon found that the threats of detentions came into being as much as the push-ups did. The style of music changed as did the players . . . band member turnover ran rampant. Front row: K. Welda, L Louis, M. Keeble, L. Williiims, M, Gallmeyer, C. Knieckeberg, V Halfter -. K.

The line gets shorter and shorter. The door opens. " Won ' t you come in now? " is asked. As you enter, you see a girl sitting at the piano, ready to pluck the notes to the selections Mr. Henke has picked out. Now comes the unbearable part: waiting for the results. As sweat from your body nearly becomes a puddle around your feet, Mr. Henke posts a list with the names and yours is on it. Joy overcomes you. Those mornings of singing in the shower are now paying off. The year was filled with many activities. The Concert and Swing Choirs performed at the New Haven High School, the Sunnymede Elementary School, WOWO Penny Pitch, Geoglein ' s Barn for Don Ayres, Marriott Inn, Goeglein ' s Barn for the Chamber of Commerce, and they performed on WKJG TV 33 for " Carols for Christmas.

While they were school related there was something that masked that association with school. A lot of it may have been the friends that became so much part of you dur- ing the meetings. It may have been because of the early morning trips to a spee ch meet or that student council meeting on the worst of all mornings, Monday. Some clubs, like the foreign language clubs, were only for those who spoke the language of the club. Others were for students CLUBS Announcing the winning numbers for the Latin Club raffle Greg Jackson yells out the first winning number. As principal. Curt Ladig, makes one of his many daily an- nouncements in the fall play. with high GPA ' s. Still others like Bible Club and Drama Club were for everyone. For whatever reason someone joined a club, there was always plenty of laughter, some tears and a constant struggle to attain something better for yourself or the club. When the year finally did close there were memories of good times, of the caring and of the sharing and the ability to say, " We ' ve made it what it is. " sports related clubs on the go Through all of the seasons, through the change from one sport to another. Pep Club was there making the spirit to keep the teams go- ing and trying to bring school spirit to an all new high. They were the ones behind all of the pep ses- sions and they, with the help of the cheerleaders, made them what they were. Without the girls who stayed after school there would never have been the pep ses- sion that started at 2:45 and got you out of school a few minutes early. Another group of girls that helped the sports were the Wrestlerettes. Without the Wrestlerettes, it would have been near impossible to run the wrestling meets. Not only were they there organizing, they were there by the mats cheering the wrestlers on to victory. A time to be together for athletes outside of play is usually rare for participants in sports. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes gave members a chance to sit and talk about the pressures they received and to try and find a way to deal with them. While they left most of the selling up to other clubs, the members did go out and sell Christmas decorations to keep the club going. Though the ground may be wet, it is simply because of the FCA ' s fund raising carwash. Ann Zurbach helped with the chores.

Wrestlereltes — 167 SchooVs leaders achieve more than good grades While it may not be the biggest group, it is by far the most well known of all the school ' s groups. Student Council is a select group of students chosen by the stu- dent body to represent the students in a governmental type of way. The club ' s main event is the Homecoming ac- tivities. The club also spon- sors the Special Olympics and numerous dances in the school. The Council makes an attempt to brighten a teacher ' s day with their little elf program. The elf is bearer of good tidings until his or her revelation at the year ' s close. On Thursday mornings they would come to study the word of God. Bible Club is that group set apart from most clubs simply because of its name and the relationship it has with public schools. The club has kept itself ac- tive throughout the year with Bible studies and pizza parties. While they attemp- ted many things, oftentimes they just couldn ' t be com- pleted. The Sadie Hawkins booth was just such an example. If there are clubs which can be popular or faithful then there must be one which is honorable. There is, too, Honor Society. Forty members strong, the society is the creme of the crop, the smartest and most intelligent of the senior class. Each member must have an 8.5 or above GPA to be invited to join the club. At a banquet held at the end of the year each member is presented with the gold cords which will grace the gown when he or she graduates. Mr. Jacob Delegrange was one of the speakers at the Honor Society ' s spring banquet held at Goeglein ' s Reserve.

Members of the foreign language clubs took what they had learned in class and learned a little bit more about the culture and the people of the countries that spoke that same language. Oktoberfest started off the year for German Club members. Members went to Geoglein ' s barn in slightly less than authentic German costumes. After an original German dinner, polka danc- ing was learned by those brave enough to try. Kar- nival provided a needed change for club members when they attended in costumes of their choice. In order to continue making the club better than ever, members sold gummi bears and German advent calendars. French, the language of love, tried to make itself known among the school. Taking first place in the non-float competition of the Homecoming parade helped a little. Celebrating Christmas French style turn- ed out to be a bit much for most when they had to walk the streets of Highland Ter- race caroling en francaisc. The French Club banquet gave members a chance to experience an entire French meal in one of Fort Wayne ' s more exclusive restaurants. Cafe Jonell. Spanish students had a chance to |Oin the club in the annual initiations. From the beginning of the year at the garage where the Spanish Club float was built, they worked together to improve their skills with the language and just to have fun. Sadie Hawkins gave the members of Spanish Club a chance to make money with the selling of balloons. The members discovered one thing about selling balloons: the green ones sell the best. f r wi Prior to the International Dinner many students, like Jess Hogue bought T-shirts with foreign words on them.

Scavenger hunts can be hard enough especially at night. JCL members scan their list for the next item. Dedication competition exploration and deadlines A cool night ' s ride in a wagon filled with hay, bob- bing for apples, and many other things were just a part of how the Junior Classical League, or JCL made their year what it was. While the language itself never played a major part of the activities, the culture itself affected almost everything. The Latin Club made their year even better by placing first in scrapbook competition at Tri-State University. Each person won recognition for the club in various contests. There ' s a club for everyone in the school. For the academic minded one there is always the Science Club. Spelunking, with Mr. Hunnings, gave the club members a chance to see the underside of the ground. Not all activities were science oriented. Ski trips added a nice change to the usual pace of studying science. Trips, studying and lectures at state campuses made the year for them the best that it could have been. For the Publication staffs it seemed like a rerun of a bad movie; another adviser took over the job of both the Herald and the Mirage. This time the show had a dif- ferent ending, however. With all of the work involv- ed, both the staff and adviser grew to form a bond that made the publications and the staffs better than they had been before. The work, the good times and the d eadlines made the year for them as they strived to make everything they did the best. Through the efforts of Mr Jim Grim, the publications went through an overhaul.

Science Club, Publications, JCL — 773 Performing artists - in the spotlight Perhaps the most exposed of all the clubs and organiza- tions is the Drama Club. Each year this group prac- tices and rehearses lines, makes and dons costumes and performs for audiences of young and old alike. In fall of 1980 the group took their audiences back in time to the late 1960 ' s for their performance of " Up the Down Staircase. " The club was also affiliated with the actors and actresses who brought us " The Sound of Music. " Drama Club does not rest solely on the laurels of her performers. Rather, there are seamstresses, set builders, and perhaps one of the most important people in any play, the director. No play would ever shine so brightly were it not for the work of the Media Club. Together this team il- luminates the stage with their work from the light booth. The group also handles the video and technical equipment in many of the school ' s func- tions requiring their special talents. There is one organization which can never be talked down, the organization call- ed NFL, or Speech Team. Almost every Saturday mor- ning at wee hours when most people were in bed, the team was traveling to distant schools to deliver speeches in the hopes of high rank- ings. The sleeplessness often paid off, too, as in the case of the meet in Plymouth, In- diana where the team claim- ed a first place trophy. From that point on, with the help of Coach Dennis Filer, the team was on their way to be- ing number one in the com- ing years.

The building stood quietly in the midst of nature ' s awakening. Keys turned in the building ' s locks, and the doors were tried to insure that they were open. One by one buses and cars pulled into the parking lot. Loads and groups of teenagers ambled out of the vehicles and blinked in the morning sun. The name upOn the stark building stood out — New Haven High School. Few, if any of the young people noticed the name for they would see it every day for the next nine months. The first day was the hardest, followed closely by Monday. Even on this first day the students began to take an interest in the school. Each class quickly iden- tified itself, too.

WeWe made it what it is The making of a year ments began the day and an armload of books and a trek home ended it. The weekends quickly became something that were looked forward to. Once the football team began its winning ways the weekend became even more special. As the days lingered on spirit grew throughout the school. Each student began to exhibit more pride in the school. Even while they were experiencing this pride, seniors began applying to colleges around the country. And, as the days rolled by they would rejoice with their acceptances and the fact that they had made it. ' Each day was something to be a part of at New Haven. Each day was a day for building, growing and striving to achieve the ultimate goal of perfection or at least success. Winter days dragged by and it seemed at times that it would be easier to stay home rather than be an achiever. This appeared to be the case when the " flu " neared epidemic proportions. The sick were cured, however, and winter passed. « s the word used to A few moments to pause and Long hours of practice brought maiden fhght of the ponder the events to come are about the polished look of the Columbia.

Giving blood can be very pleasant. Dona Yingling gives generously. Memories cherished and friends would not soon be forgotten. Spring held nothing eventful, save for a welcome change in the weather. With the change in the weather came the hint of spring fever and " spring fling. " Instead of one " fling, " though, there were three. Inside each student there was more than a spring fever, though. There was a positive self-image. There was a pride in the school and in friends. The pride lasted until the end as 284 seniors received their diplomas on May 22, 1981. Each senior had a feeling of accomplishment for having made it and for making the year what it was. With graduation the year was complete; there was no turning back. Lessons may have been learn- ed, for good or bad. Whatever the case each student — senior or otherwise, had to decide upon the year for himself. Everyone knew we ' d made it what it was. A year to look back on, memories to be cherished and friends who would not soon be forgotten in the course of making the year what it is — even now.
