With early-morning's purple shadow enveloped around
the almost windowless building, its modern architecture
gave off a feeling of coldness and impersonalism. Students
lingered in the parking lot. They searched for friends to
share the entrance on the first day of school, August 31,
Once inside, it was not as awful as imagined. The stu-
dents clustered into groups and conversation of summer
vacations, new clothes and the opening season victory of
the football team floated through the halls. Purple and gold
signs welcomed the new and the old students. Bulldog spirit
gave the inside of the cold, impersonal building a friendly
glow, a special warmth-a felling that was purely gold
which would continue throughout the year.
The football season brought the population of the school
closer as the Bulldogs joined together to cheer their team
on. No one would forget the Homecoming game when the
Bulldogs charged on for a 35-3 victory against the Bellmont

Along with fall and football came the new fashions. Izods,
Calvin Klein and topsiders still cruised the halls of New
Haven as "preppie" attire remained from the previous
year. The "punk" look influenced many students as head-
bands were tied around foreheads and hemlines were
raised. Even the Bulldogs developed their own fashion
when bright golden sweaters with purple logos were made
During the year it seemed as though students were taking
more of an interest in their futures. College plans were
made by more than the usual amount of students. A record

With the snow making New Haven appear as part of the
"Great White North," the students took on a new vocabu-
lary. "Take off," "get out" and "hoser" were only a few
words and expressions made popular by Bob and Doug
McKenzie of SCTV.
As the winter began to leave, freezing rain and fog caused
more cancellations and delays. But even though school was
out more than normal, it did not stop 296 seniors from
graduating in May.
The purple shadows always seemed to lurk in the back-
ground when many happenings of the school year were

Watching the Bulldogs beat Bellmont at Homecoming,
soaping windows on Halloween, collecting 6,724 cans at
Christmas time and swaying to "Just Between You and
Me" with that special someone at the prom, these were
the memories that were cherished. No one would forget
these times for they were purely golden.
Bad times were something like the buildings morning

times stood out.
Student activities depended mainly on the weather.
Snow meant one could go tubing or cross-country skiing,

homes watching soap operas or reading a good book.

Big heat relief ... ..g,.Q.Q... 0b,e
For some, summer had brought a time for
fun, excitement and romance. For others like
Tammy Ames, it was also a time to work and
earn the bucks. Whatever it held, the sum-
mer was full of memories.
The summer's heat didn't make the vaca-
tion any less exciting. Students found relief
from the 90-degree heat at Jury Pool. Some
spread out towels and basted in the sun's
tanning rays while others took the chlorine
plunge. Some cooled off in air-conditioned
homes, catching up on the latest soap opera
actiong sports took a back seat as baseball
players went on strike.
Dedicated athletes, band members, jour-
nalism students and cheerleaders spent some
time perfecting skills at summer camps and
workshops. The camps were a real learning
experience for students like Ed Steger who
believed that his week at Indiana University
football camp was a great asset to his football

The summer sun had faded away behind
the dark orange walls and crept into the path
of New Haven High School students. Yes,
summer had gone and school had started
again. Memories of the late weekends, par-
ties, beach towel fights and the skimpy bikinis
were left behind, replaced by notebooks,
folders and Erasermate 2's.
Barely awake, students with circles under
their eyes, made their way into the school.
Armed with pens, they began to recall
names, addresses and phone numbers as

It was 7:17 one Monday night and almost
everyone had arrived, only a few slithered in
late. Voices broke out from every direction-
but one could be heard above all. Dave Rahn,
New Haven's Campus Life director, was an-
ouncing the three "lucky" contestants for
The contestants shuffled across the crowd-
ed room and waited patiently. The sound of a
bag of marshmallows being opened and
laughter could be heard. The game was
ready to begin. The object of this game was
to find out who had the biggest mouth. Each
person was given a marshmallow and would
put it in their mouth and then say, "Chubby
Bunnies." The winner was the one who could
still say "Chubby Bunnies" with the most
marshmallows in his mouth. The person who
holds the record is Greg Jackson, with a total
of twelve marshmallows.
After the games, the group has a serious
discussion on one of the many topics concern-
ing today's teen. Topics included were dat-
ing, parents and premarital sex.
Already done with the discussion, the
meeting was closed, but everyone still re-
mained for the munchies. Eating and talking
were the favorite after-meeting activities.
Other than the meeting of the school's
club, Campus Life gave the members to par-
ticipate in events with surrounding schools
such as Harding and Norwell.
The Campus Life "Riotl' was filled with
crazy games. Campus Life also sponsored
A TYPICAL Campus
Life meeting catches
the attention of people
present with a topical
discussion going on.
Each Monday night,
discussions were held
at the weekly meet-
many trips taken annually. The winter trip
was time to pack your sweaters and jeans
and head up to Caberfae located in Northeas-
tern Michigan. A new event that Campus Life
had was a "New Year's Eve Lock-Inn." It
was held in the Marriott Hotel in Fort Wayne.
It lasted from 4 p.m. New Yearis Day. This
included music, movies and an indoor pool
plus much more. Heading into the spring sea-
son, there was the annual trip to have fun in
the sun in Florida. It happened during spring
break and every dime of the money was
memories the travellers would never forget.
This adventure took them to Disney World
and to the wonderful beach at Daytona.
Another thing Campus Life offered was a
show which was held three nights and held at
South Side High School. "Breakaway" was
filled with musical guests, funny and funky
movies, also a Penny Queen contest. This
contest finds one lucky girl to collect money
from dedicated people to help pay off
The last trip that was taken was a time to
catch some of that sun in Minnesota. This trip
was based on how to survive in the wilder-
ness. Many people took their rods and reels
and dreamed of catching that big twenty
pound bass, but most settled for just trying.
They also got to see where the real fun began
by paddling the canoes downstream. All in
all, Campus Life provided a chance to meet
people, have fun and to see the real you.

Spirit take-over comes in
all forms: cowboys,
Diller and . Rogers
The drab, off-white walls and the look of
everyday clothes took on a new form and
brilliance as New Haven prepared for the
game of the season-for Homecoming.
Spirit took control and ruled over the
school from 8:05 Monday morning, Septem-
ber 28 until 11:O3 Friday evening when
Phoenix played their last song for the even-
shirts, sweaters and even socks striped with
purple were donned to show-off the spirit-
Bulldog style, as the week began.
New Haven High took on a new, if not
unique look for schools, as 'icowboys and
girlsl' rustled up the Braves for Round-up
Day, Cap guns snapped and popped in loud
spurts at the few brave spiritmakers who
came in all-out Indian gear-feathers, war
paint, and all.
"I don't think l've ever been so comfort-
able," giggled Amy Felten as she looked
down at her sweatshirt. Not even at a cross
country or track meet, had so many jogging
outfits, Nike tennis shoes and sweats been
worn as when the halls and people "decked
out" to "Warm up the Braves."

While girls frizzed their hair and put on their
short and oddly bright colored dresses, Greg
Jackson demonstrated "Mr. Rogers off the

nips here and there.
Seniors made look-alike day a little more
personal as all came dressed as their hero.
While the troops led by Scott Sharp and
George Dicks took over the office in the name
of "Bulldogism," Brent Murphy and Phil
McCommons rocked the auditeria with their
renditions of Ted Nugent and Angus Young.
And once again in the name of Homecom-

The pep session took on a different-if not
awkward-feeling as the presidents of both
the sophomore and freshmen classes apolo-
gized for remarks shouted to each other.
The crowning of the Homecoming queen
was a highlight of the festivities. Each girl was
escorted across the gym floor to a seat. Last
year's queen, Julie Hill, sat in the throne until
she had been relieved by Brenda Schortgen,
who would reign over the parade.
It seemed as if the week had just started
when no sooner Homecoming night was
there. After weeks of making and stuffing
Kleenex flowers into chicken wire, the floats
slowly pulled out of garages and creaked
down the length of the parade route. From
being burnt to being chased up trees, Bell-
mont took the butt of humor as the parade
wound into the Homecoming game and even-
tually into the dance.
People entered through the gate after pay-
ing 32.00 for a ticket and slowly climbing the
steps of the stadium, clutching to their ther-
moses of coffee and blankets.
More and more people packed into the
stadium until it flowed over onto the extra
bleachers that had been set up. The wind
blew a cold chill through the night air. Cou-
ples huddled close with blankets wrapped
around themselves as they watched Greg
Jackson run 64 yards to make the score 35-3.
While the game was going on the field,
other happenings were taking place else-
where. In the parking lot, two E.M.Sfs were
flashing their orange lights into the night
while sirens added to the noise made by the
crowd, as they put a New Haven student into
its back section.
The night slowly died down with the Home-
coming Dance and the music of Phoenix. For
the first time in years, students rocked and
then swayed to the school's own music pro-
vided by students and grads of New Haven.
Couples clinging to each other, friends
shouting back and forth walked across the
parking lot where leaves and yellow and pur-
ple Kleenex flowers mixed and blew togeth-
The night had died, and on the first Mon-
day of October, New Haven took back its
ordinary look of Nike tennis shoes-and con-

letting it loose
It was the only day ofthe week anticipated
by the students-payday. Whether it was a
paycheck or allowance from mom and dad, it
did not matter because it was time to
SPEND, SPEND, SPEND!!!
The money magically worked its way out
of purses and billfolds and ended up in the
nearest cashier's hand or the closest video
game. The money was replaced by one ofthe
high school student's Hbare necessities."
These included such things as a pair of Jor-
dache, the latest Rolling Stones album, a
large pizza, a concert ticket or a chance to
catch !'Pac-man Fever."
Friday was almost always payday and
there was usually some type of sporting
event, so naturally the common New Haven
students cheered the Bulldogs on to another
victory. All that cheering seemed to give one
a 'KBig Mac Attack" or a craving for deep-
pan pizza. After all nine people were packed
into the Volkswagon, it was off to Pizza Hut
or McDonaldls, also known as "Mickey D's,"
These two places were considered as the offi-
cial after-game hangouts. On nights without
games, the teens drifted apart to movies,
bowling alleys and the malls. Much of the
"preppy populationl' ofthe school preferred
to hangout at the Blue Mountain Cafe or the
French Cafe at the Holiday Inn.
On a Saturday afternoon, many people
chose to hangout at video arcades. The elec-
tronic amusement devices addicted students
as they told themselves, !'Just one more
gamef' and '!This will be my last onef' The
last game was from the last quarter of the
now, non-existent paycheck.
The answer to the broke video addict's
problem was the Rubik's Cube, which proved
to be a challenge tunless patience broke it
apart and re-assembled itl. For the strong-
willed who detoured the arcades, the reward
letting it loose
was a Sunday afternoon of shopping. Buying
in the malls seemed to be the "in" thing to do,
but K-Mart bluelight specials were definitely
"out." The newly remodeled and much larg-
er Glenbrook Square drew in most of the
New Haven crowd. Many went to the mall for
different reasons other than shopping. "l like
to check-out guys at the mall," admitted sen-
ior Laurie Bendele.
"lt's a good way to kill a Sunday after-
noon, commented junior Ed Wilson. l-le also
added that he likes to look at the girls.
The wasted gas and two hours fighting traf-
fic paid off when they could make a new
friend or see an old one.
"Just looking" became more common in
stores due to the low job rate of the area.
Money was spent more wisely as the econom-
ic crunch was felt by teenagers. They used
practicality in buying clothes. Fad clothes
faded away but classics remained. Many
stores' business was to appeal to the teens
tastes. Clothes stores, record shops and nov-
elty shops specialized in pleasing them. Spen-
cer Gifts and Stoner's provided the some-
times bizarre gag gifts common to their spe-
cial occasion giving.
Shopping was not just the purchasing of
items, the students were also interested in the
social aspects of it.
Although New Haven does not offer a wide
variety of activities, we have been fortunate
to have Fort Wayne nearby. Along with mov-
ies, bowling, and arcades, an occasional con-
cert would appear at the Memorial Coliseum.
Since concerts were not as frequent in Fort
Wayne as past years, concert-goers were
forced to travel to Chicago, Indianapolis,
South Bend, Toledo and Detroit to see the
more popular groups. Every cent paid for the

gas, ticket and concert t-shirt was worth it
when one could say that they saw Mick Jag-
ger dart onto the stage and begin singing his
opening number, 'Under My Thumb," with
his usual curled-lip expression. A few lucky
students got tickets to the sold-out Rolling
Stones concerts at the Rosemont Horizon and
the Pontiac Silverdome. Although the Stones
never played Fort Wayne, other groups did.
Early in the school year, Kenny Rogers and
the Beach Boys rocked the Coliseum. On Oc-
tober 29, 1981, Nazareth came with their
special guests, Molly Hatchet and the Joe
Perry Project. Nazareth added a unique
touch to their performance with an excellent
light show as well as great music. A very
popular group in this area, the J. Geils Band,
introduced their new album with the hit sin-
gle, "Centerfold," and weeks after students
who attended could be heard singing the fa-

In a last effort to go out with him, she told

friend, in turn, would tell another, 'iMarsha
likes John." This friend, of course, was the
girlfriend of John's best-friend's cousin's
mailmanls son and the information was Cfinal-
lyl related to John.
John could not wait to go to school the next
day. He woke-up at 4:00 a.m. and began his
lengthy process. He took his best suit from
the closet, laid it on the bed and preceeded to
take a shower. He dressed carefully, blew his
hair dry and combed it until every hair fell
into a perfect geometric shape. He then hair-
sprayed it-he was not taking any chances
on the strong three m.p.h. wind gusts. For the
finishing touch, he splashed on a few ounces
of English Leather, secretly hoping that Mar-
sha preferred all of her men in English Leath-
Marsha got up at 3:30 a.m., after being
informed that she was to be asked out by
John. She took her shower and returned to
her room with her head in a towel turban and
an old robe hung on her body. She rolled her
hair in curlers and sat on her vanity's bench.
She immediately started dipping her fingers
into jars of cremes, moisturizers and peel-off
masks and as soon as she applied one to her
face, it was off and on with another.
After all this ado, the next step was to pick
out something to wear. Pushing her Aigner
sweater to the side, she began tossing sweat-
ers on the floor, stopping once in awhile to try
one on. Then, she sorted through her jeans to
find the proper pair.
"M-m, Calvin Klein-too faddish. Jor-
dache. No, everyone has a pair. Well, maybe
the Vanderbilts. No, they've been washed at
least three times," she thought to herself.
Finally in a rage of anger, she shouted, "I
have nothing to wear!', After scaring the dog
and waking her family up, she finally decided
on a sweater, wool skirt and topsiders.
It took longer to put on her make-up than a
circus clown painting his face. A few too
many spritzes of her designer perfume and
she was finished. After an hour-long critiqu-
ing session in front of her full-length mirror,
she was off to school.
John found her sitting in the Commons.
'IT must be love' as Karen Augenstine and Mark
Stier walk together to class. Karen and Mark
dated periodically during the '82 school year.
She was surrounded by friends who suddenly
scurried away. He approached and sat on the
bench next to her. His heart raced as he
worked words past the dry lump in his throat.
"You wouldn't . . . uh . . . I mean, would
you like to go to a movie and pizza tonight?sf
"Sure, I'd love to," she replied in a calm,
cool and collected voice she had been practic-
ing the night before.
K'I'll pick you up at 7:15," he said.
"O.K., I'll see you then," she said in a
cheery voice with a smile falso rehearsedl.
After rushing home from school, they re-
peated their morning routine once again.
At exactly 7: 15 and zero seconds the door-
bell rang. Marsha nearly fell off her chair
where she was pretending to be engrossed in
the latest issue of Cosmopolitan. Her father
let John in and the third degree began.
Where are you going? What time will you
bring Marsha home? Her parents tossed
questions at him just as fast as he could an-
swer them. Coming to the rescue, Marsha
gave her parents the brush-off and off they
Soon they were on their way to the movie
theater. The ride was so long and so quiet
that it seemed like a trip to the moon.
Finally there and seated, they relaxed and
began to enjoy the feature. Inspired by the
actors on the screen who were kissing, John
put his arm around Marsha and bumped the
person's arm next to her, who just happened
to be holding a large Coke. Marsha let out a
blood-curdling yelp and all eyes were on him.
A lady behind him hit him over the head with
an umbrella and started shouting about all
the teenage perverts these days. While wip-
ing up the Coke, John apologized over and
over. In the meantime, they made it through
the remainder of the movie and left to meet
their friends at Pizza Hut.
The car began to jerk and make funny
noises. It came to a dead halt in front of
Crumback-Symons on U.S. 30. John was out
of gas! He began to explain his situation to
Marsha. "I'll push and you can steer. The gas
station is only a few blocks away," he said.
"But, I don't know how to steer a car and

As soon as her little brother ordered a sal-
ad bar, Marsha knew what was in store for
John. Minutes later, John was bombarded
with flying tomatoes, lettuce, croutons and an
occasional spoonful of French dressing, then
came the pizza. Marsha's intuition told her
that mushrooms would sail toward John next.
KHer brother hates mushrooms?
John, who looked like a chef salad, gritted
his teeth and in a low, urgent voice made it
clear that he wanted to leave. They bid their
friends farewell and John drove her home.
He walked her to her doorstep and

after he said it. He felt like the low-man on a
pygmie totem pole.
"I had a really nice time," she replied.
"Wanna do it again sometime?" he asked.
"Sure! Good night, John," she said as she
began walking into her house.

skipped to his car.

Slowly the amber lights rose and a diminu-

Other than slow-dancing, the next most
popular dance taking place was the square
dance where many couples got a chance to
switch partners. As the dances got faster,
many of the girls found that without high
heels swinging-with-your-partner proved to
be a much easier task.

The New Haven High School spring musi-
cal The Flower Drum Song was presented
on the evenings of March 25th, 26th, and
27th. The show received a standing ovation
each night it was performed.
The cast started practicing for their perfor-
mance two months before the opening night.
Although there were a few conflicts with re-
hearsal schedules and a loss of temper every
now and then, the musical turned out to be a
"heck of a show."
This Rogers and Hammerstein musical
dealt with the frustrations of a traditional Chi-
nese father, Wang Chi Yang, portrayed by
junior Rich Gongaware, who was trying to
cope with his children growing up in modern
western American. The romances in this
musical involved three women: Linda Low,
portrayed by senior Tracey Lockardg Mei Li,
portrayed by senior Debra Leffelg and Helen
Chao, portrayed by senior Joy Foust. All
three women found time to fall in love with
one man, Wang Ta, portrayed by sophomore
Joel Reed. In the end, Linda Low ended up
with Sammy Fong, portrayed by senior Jeff
Markley, and Mei Li ended up marrying
Wang Ta, which in turn made Mei Li's father,
Dr. Li, portrayed by junior Mark Losher and
Wang Ta's Aunt Liang, portrayed by senior
Lisa Drayer, very happy.
The musical took the time and talents of
many people. Stage director Mr. Dennis
Eller, music director Mr. Chuck Henke, cho-
reography was done by NHHS senior Connie
Krueckeberg, lighting and sound was headed
by LuAnn Beaman and Natalie King helped
with the children's number. The orchestra

The memories and the hardships from the
1982 spring musical will linger in everyone's

made it a really great show."

The girls of New Haven got their chance to
do the asking, as well as paying, at the annual
Sadie Hawkins dance, March 19. That night,
Izods were replaced by flannel shirts, sus-
penders or ropes were worn instead of belts,
and Levis and hiking boots took the place of
Calvin Kleins and deck shoes. The theme of
this year's dance was uHoedown Hilarity"
and it was sponsored by the class of '82.
The evening began at 6 o'clock with a car-
nival in the upstairs commons. Booths, spon-
sored by various clubs, offered everything
from a cake walk to the Junior Olympics. Mr.
Stephan's "Movie of the Year" was, as all
ways, a major attraction at the carnival. Fi
nally, at 8:30, the hoedown began. Country
music was supplied by the band 'iGoldrush.',
Slow dances were played, but square danc-
ing provided the most enthusiasm. Following
the dance, it was time to announce the
awards. Gary Hook and Nancy Wolfe were
named king and queen or Lil' Abner and
Daisy May. Mark Losher and Missy Werling
took home the most original costume honor.
The moment everyone had been waiting
for came with the arrival of Mr. Henke, alias
K'Marrying Sam." It was time for couples to
"get hitched," but first girls had to catch their
men. With the word "go," guys ran in every
direction and girls chased after them in every
direction. Within minutes, all couples were
reunited and the marriage ceremony took

The awards program was viewed by the
senior and junior classes in the auditeria,
while underclassmen watched on televisions
in their homerooms.
The audience in the auditoria gave three
standing ovations. The foreign exchange stu-

for '82 seniors
Graduation-it meant something different
to each of us. For some it meant we would
have to say good-bye to our previous upper-
classmen, and for others it meant a start to a
whole new life.
On May 26, 312 graduating students,
starting with Mike Allgeier and ending with
Kathy Zurbuch, marched to the front of the
gymnasium to pick up their diplomas-the
reward for their 13 years of schooling. There
were 48 members of the Honor Society who
were entitled to wear a gold cord on the pur-
ple gown, There were seven, six-semester
graduates and five foreign exchange students

out her four years of high school, earned Cyn-

Before the diplomas were passed out, the
choir sang "Flying Free" and "When All Is
Said And Done" followed by the speaker for
the commencement, Mr. R. Lawrence Huff.
There were a few more speeches, the band
played and the highlight of the evening be-

though many names were mispronounced, it

After the ceremonies many seniors rushed
off to attend a party while others just stood
around talking to friends and looking at the
school the first time as alumni.

Pederson said this before the graduation

THE flood of '82 will long be remem-
bered, especially by the students
who "helped save the city" in the
'save Fort Wayne'
olurzng spring flood
It had left its mark on almost every Allen
County resident. Stories of the "Flood of
'82" would be heard by many generations to
Although the flood was mainly in Fort
Wayne, many New Haven students and their
families were affected.
"We rowed to school, We had four small
boats, one large boat and a canoe," said sen-
ior Vickie Ball who lives in the Georgian Park
addition which is bordered on the north by
the Maumee River.
'fMy house was underwater," said senior
On March 17, approximately 375 students
were released to help sandbag the Fort
The sandbaggers reported to selected fire
stations as well as the Coliseum. They were
then transported on school buses to the sites
where they were most needed.
Student sandbaggers felt better about
themselves as well as their community.
"I think it was the best civil service duty I
ever performed, It united the teenage com-
munity and uplifted the older generation's
view of us," said senior Robb Fultz.
"I have a lot of friends around Northside.
Many of them were evacuated from their
homes. I wanted to help them out," said sen-
ior Bonnie Patton.
"I think they should have had something to
show their appreciation for the teenagers
who did the work. They should have had a
concert instead of a bunch of soap opera
stars at the Embassy," commented senior
Summing up how most of the New Haven
sandbaggers felt, senior Scott Sharp said, "I
felt like I did my duty for my community."

doors and seeks the assistance of a postal

even trying to find a certain stamp for his

As of March, 900,000 males between the
ages of 18 and 20 still failed to register. The
registration itself is quite a simple process. A
draft registration card is filled out with the
person's name, birthdate and current living

Cars still dear to
high school hearts
Every morning cars filter into the school
parking lot slowly as if they did not really
want to be there. Some of the cars arrived
early in order to find a front row parking
place, while other cars just drove up and
down the driving lanes until it was time to go
into the building.
After school was out it was a different sto-
ry as car owners raced to the parking lot,
hopped into their cars and tried to beat the
buses and everyone else in the way out of the
Sometimes a few cars would stay behind
and race around and do a few "donuts" if
they felt like it.
"I don't see how you can pay over a dollar
for gas and see how much you can burn up in
10 minutes. I think we need a mass transpor-
tation system to replace cars,', said senior
Many students who have nice cars are
keeping them at home and taking the school
ALTHOUGH some cars are nicer
than others, this owner is proud of

PREPARING for the perfect date isn't always
easy, which Cindy Schrage discovers.
She looks at the clock. It's two hours and
45 minutes before he comes and she's al-
ready dressed. Every hair is in place and that
last bit of Cover-Girl has already been per-
fected. Now she sits and waits.
Across town, he looks up at the clock and
realizes he might be late. It doesn't make any
difference that he still has two hours before
it's time to leave. He's convinced he should
allow time for traffic, flat tires or any tragic
accidents that might happen on the way.
After re-combing his hair again, he leaves
more than an hour early.
As he drives down her street he realizes
he's 20 minutes early, so he pulls over to the
other side of the road and waits. After waiting
15 minutes, he pulls into the driveway, goes
up to the door, rings the bell and realizes he is
at the neighbors' house.
There are many things a person goes
through preparing for that special date. Get-
ting ready is just one.

watch them and others would rather choose

"Who,s pregnant?" "Who shot whom?',

which the soaps bring into mind.

Seeing double usual in juni
Don't be surprised if you're walking down
the halls of New Haven and think you're see-
ing double. Nothing is wrong with your eyes,
you're probably looking at twins. There are
three sets of identical twins in the class of
"83," the Loshers, Woodruffs and the Frys.
Virtually every twin has been asked the
question, "Do you like being a twin?"
i'Being a twin is great," said Mark Losher,
"but, if people would think about it, it's a
very stupid question. How do I know if I like
it? I've never been anything else." Tom and
Mark Losher get along well and although
Tom admits he doesn't tell Mark everything,
he trusts him more than anyone else and con-
siders Mark to be his best friend. The usual
sibling rivalry isn't found in their relationship.
"Our parents never pushed us to be com-
petative," said Mark. "If one of us does bet'
ter in something, we think nothing of it."
Although Tom and Mark have lived in New
Haven all of their lives, there is always some-
one getting them mixed up, yet it does not
seem to irritate Mark or Tom.
"Most people feel very bad if they get us
mixed up, but it doesn't bother me a bitf,
said Mark. "Tom and I have lived with it all of
our lives and you just get used to itf'
Ron and Don Woodruff came to New Ha-
ven from Heritage their sophomore year. Un-
like the Loshers, the Woodruffs compare
themselves to each other and often find them-
selves in competition. Like most brothers,
Ron and Don have their share of disagree-
"We get along pretty good most of the
time," said Don Woodruff, "but we usually
have about one fight a weekf'
New to New Haven this year were Randy
and Rodney Fry. The Frys were a big asset to
this yearis outstanding football team and
when not playing, they were seen cheering
their team on from the sidelines.
Rod Fry believes that New Haven is hard-
i f 3 H
er scholastically and said he's learned more
about football in one year at New Haven than
he did in four years at Woodlan. Because of
the football season, Rod felt especially wel-
"During football season, the players and
the coaches treated Randy and I as a part of
the team-right off the bat," said Rod. "I
thought we would be hated, because we
came from Woodlan." .
Randy and Rodney aren't only close in
looks, but they are also close friends.
"Randy and I understand each other, we
try not to do anything to get each other made,
but that doesn't mean we don't. When we do,
we have a pair of boxing gloves that we use."
When comparing Woodlan to New Haven,
Rod Fry replied, i'Do I want to go back to
Woodlan? They couldn't pay me to."
And as a person walked down the junior
hall, seeing double sometimes meant seeing
two-two in three sets of twins.

WALKING through the commons are Randy and Rodney Fry, one of three sets of twins in the junior class. Seeing double was a daily sight.

hours of riding on an airplane, five people

from Spain arrived. These students were
here on a one-year program with Youth for
Understanding. Also, Aida Azevedo from

All the exchange students had one of their
dreams come true. This meant that they
were on their own for some time away from
home, in a foreign country.
Everyone had something different to say
about New Haven High School. Christian en-
joyed the 1981 football season, although he
did suffer a knee injury. Ingrid Martinez and
Petra Worwag took a Posseum Trip to the
East coast visiting many historical places,
such as Boston, and they also went to see the
White House, home of President and Mrs.
Reagan. Ingrid commented that it was one of
her dreams and it came true.

THE goal of many high school athletes is to earn
their letter. Sara Lopshire, who lettered in three
sports, considers studying just as important as

Lettering in a sport, whether it be basket-
ball or tennis, is an accomplishment that
takes much dedication and determination.
Most athletes who letter do it in their junior or
senior year, but an elite number of athletes

Sara Lopshire, who lettered in basketball
and volleyball, felt rather awkward at first
since she was competing with upperclassmen
for her varsity position.
"I knew if I didn't work twice as hard as
everyone else, the seniors would have a hard
time accepting me," Sara said. Sara went on
to explain that as the year progressed she
became more comfortable playing with peo-
ple older than herself.
"At the beginning of the year, I didn't feel
like I fit in, but by the middle of the season, I
felt more like a part of the team."
Varsity wrestler Chris Neher felt rather

because of his success in wrestling as a fresh-
"After my freshman year I was nervous
about doing as well this year, but with encour-

The ring itself has come a long ways. When
our parents were being educated, most
schools offered only one style of class ring.
The style usually depended on what year the
person graduated. Now though, the ring has
become a personal work or art.
Josten's, New l'Iaven's ring representa-
tive, lets the student design his personal ring.
Depending on the personls preferences, al-
most anything could be put on the class ring.
No two rings look exactly alike.
Unlike when our parents were in school,
the jewelry company has 12 different ring
styles available, Along with that, students are
given seven different styles of stones l12 col-
orsl to choose from. Josten's also offers more
than 100 different designs for the ring sides.
For example, side designs include band, jour-
nalism, academics and even the signs of the
To record one's special memories, a per-
son can spend as little as 580 on his ring.
Some, depending on the changing price of

Whether big balloons, little balloons,

The balloon boom hit New Haven High
School with more than a bang. When you
walked down the hallways, it was quite a
break from the monotony of the day to see
someone with colorful, bright balloons
floating along above hallway heads.
The best part was getting the balloons,
of course. "I was excited to get them,"

were usually fun to receive.

Concession stands are pretty important to
the athletic department for two reasons: one
is that it is a source of income and the other is
to make people happy when they're specta-
tors, by providing them with popcorn, pop
and candy. There were two stands at every
home varsity game this year. These were run
by John Tobin, manager, Steve Shaffer,
Dave Renninger, Todd Heiber, Ray Easterly
and Paul Federspiel. Gary Lake, adviser, de-
cided what should be sold in the stands.
When asked why he works there, Shaffer
replied, 'KFor the money and the experience,
You probably think that this work is easy,
but they usually put in about 20 long, hard
hours each week at these stands and at the
bookstore. Their pay mainly depended on
how many hours they put in and how many
games we have a week. When asked if he
liked his work, John said, "Yes, because I
earn money and get free pop and popcorn."
As school goes on to begin, people work

lrick displays her gymnastics form.
Bridget Irick and Theresa Gratz are the
two freshmen girls who made it on the gym-
nastics team. Bridget, on the optional team,
competes on the floor and beam. Theresa, on
the intermediate team, competes on the
floor, bars and vault.
Gymnastics may look easy, but it's a lot of
hard work and time spent on perfecting a
move as exhibited by these two young gym-
nasts. The whole team works together and
supports the work of others.
With all of the exercises and conditioning
that a gymnast goes through, it pays off in the
and when she learns a new move or wins a
ribbon. Bridget and Theresa do just that.

Freshmen faced with bus binal
as transportation to, frorn
The alarm goes off and you hurry to get
ready for school. But, the wait comes when
you're out at the bus stop and you are waiting
for the bus to come and transport you to
school. As you get on the bus, you hear chil-
dren shouting, the radio blarring and the bus
driver's voice screaming, "Shut up!" The
smell of gasoline and the cold heaters-all of
this make the bus ride long and dreary.
There are some mornings when it seems
that nothing is going right. First, you trip up
the bus step when you're getting on the bus.
Then, you trip over someone's feet as you're
going down the isle. Then, you think to your-
self, boy what a day this will be! But, you
always try to be considerate of other people
and keep your feet out of the isle and try to
keep your conversation at a whisper and fol-
low all of the other bus rules.
Riding the bus can also be dangerous if you
don't follow the rules. Bus drivers have a lot
of responsibilities. They have to make sure
each and every student makes it home in the
same good condition that he went to school
Such is the life of the bus rider.

Mclrzturff into more
Some teachers are stuck with teaching
courses that aren't meant to be fun. But then
some teachers can make anything fun. Sam
Mclnturff is one such teacher.
Mr. Mclnturff teaches General Math, Alge-
bra, Geometry and Computer Math. He has
been at New Haven for seven years and real'
ly enjoys it. He is a graduate of Marion High
School, completed his undergraduate studies
at Purdue and received his masters degree
from I.U., Fort Wayne.
"I started out working to be an Engineer,
but I wanted to be in a people-orientated job,
so I changed my major to math so I could go
into teaching," he said.
He is also really into computers. His class
has doubled each year in the past three
years. He says this is due to his pushing the
courses and the growing popularity of com-
"Basically, next year I will be teaching only
"My ultimate goal is to get a computer in
each department of the school."
He is also the boys' tennis coach. He start-
ed the team in the fall of 1976 and has been
coaching it ever since.
"I like coaching because it is almost all
positive. The kids are there because they
want to be. They are there to become better
and my job is to help them pursue it."
He's not all work, though, and he enjoys
many hobbies. Both he and his wife of 11
years enjoy tennis, swimming, jogging, back-
packing and cross country skiing. He also
plays the guitar and when he was in college
he belonged in a band. Although now he
plays only for his own pleasure, every once in
a while he will lock the door of his classroom
and give his version of a favorite song.
Lite is not all a bed of roses for Sam McIn-
turff. One of his biggest problems is, during
the summer, 'ttrying to keep those nasty
leaves out of my built-in swimming pool."

When school started,,"Kirkton's Boys" started out
right wherethey left off the year before. The varsity
football team won its first eight games of the year before
losing to Wheelersburg, Ohio. The Bulldogs finished first
in the N.E.I.A.C. by posting a record of ninewins and one
loss. Within the conference, the team continually devas-
tated its opponents. New Haven's homecoming saw the
Dogs defeat Bellmont, 35-3. During the state playoffs,
New Haven defeated Concord before losing to Goshen.
Once again, senior Ed Steger ran for over 1,000 yards.
As fall turned into winter, Bulldog fans migrated from
John Young Stadium to the school's heated gym to take
part in Hoosier Hysteria '82! Led by senior Robbie Clark,
the varsity basketball team finished the season with a
respectable 13 win, 9 loss record.

With one, of the tallest teams in the conference, New
Haven finished in third place. The wrestling team sent
two students, Kevin Harper and Tim Laurent, to the
state finals in Indianapolis. B
When the snow finally melted, the school's track teams
sprinted into action. The boys sprint relay team, made up
of Greg Jackson, Ed Steger, Bob Dewaelsche and Matt
Lordier, was one of the best in the conference. Julie
VanTilburg led the girls squad as she placed in many
distance events throughout the year. Evgn when the
teams were losing, the jocks never seemed to give up.

New Havenfs 1981 varsity football team
had something to prove. The year before, the
predecessors put together an undefeated
season and participated in the state playoffs
for the first time in the schoolls history. Some
people felt lbecause of the loss of some of the
key players from the '80 teaml that the Bull-
dogs wouldn't be able to duplicate that feat
again. But, the i81 Bulldogs proved them
New Haven opened its football season by
traveling to Angola. lt was thought that both
teams had a chance of capturing the NEIAC
title and whoever won this game would be
one big step closer to it. New Haven started
out slow but as the game progressed, the
Bulldogs took command. When the final gun
sounded, the Dogs won their opening season
Over the next three weeks New Haven ran
its record to four wins and no losses. The
Bulldogs defeated Columbia City C42-61, Car-
roll l27-Ol and East Noble Q34-Ol. They beat
these teams by an average of 34 points each
game. As the games went by, the weather
was continually getting colder, but New Ha-
ven's fans packed their side of the stadium
each Friday night.
During the season's fifth week, the Bull-
dogs took on the Woodlan Warriors. In the
past, when these two teams collided the
game was always close. This year was no
different. The Dogs scored only three times,
but it was enough to win, 21-13. The game
was filled with turnovers, 16 in all.
Hlt was our poorest performance of the
year. We really hurt ourselves with penalties.

after the Woodland game. Next week was
the Bulldogs' homecoming.
In their homecoming game, the Dogs were
matched against the Bellmont Braves. The
whole week of festivities wound down to the
game. New Haven fell behind early, 3-0. It
didn't affect the Bulldog offense as they
scored five touchdowns. New Haven's de-
fense shut-out Bellmont the rest of the game.

The pressure was on New Haven. They
were undefeated with four games left in the
regular season. Playoff hopes started to stir.
New Haven won two more games as they
posted wins against Harding 117-0l and
Homestead C28-12l. The Dogs had to come-
from-behind against the Spartans.
The ninth week of the season saw New
Havenis undefeated season come to an end.
They traveled to Wheelersburg, Ohio. New
Haven played tough, but lost by one point,
"We didn't play bad, we had a couple of
chances to win, but we didn't take them,"
In the last game of the regular season New
Haven played Dekalb. The Bulldogs won C29-
61 and captured the NEIAC title and a berth
in the state playoffs.
The first round of the playoffs matched the
New Haven Bulldogs against the Concord
Minutemen of the Northern Lakes Confer-
ence KNLCI. No team from the NEIAC had
ever beaten a team from the NLC in state
playoff competition. The game was played at
"I'm really nervous, but I know we're go-
ing to win," said Junior Varsity Cheerleader
The Bulldogs had possession of the ball
first, but Concord intercepted. The Minute-
men marched down field and took an early 7-
0 lead. The Dogs came right back and tied
the game and from then on New Haven con-
trolled the game and finally won, 24-13.
"It was really nice we won. The game was
one of the hardest hitting I ever saw," said
During the fall, there was a team in north-
ern Indiana that had gone undefeated, the
Goshen Redskins. They fthe Dogsl would

Kirkton felt that the two teams were evenly

the stands two hours before the game start-
ed. News media from all over the state were
In the first quarter, the Bulldogs fell behind
7-0. Goshen scored on a pass that was de-
flected into one of their wide receiver's
hands. The Bulldog offense couldn't get a
drive going in the first half. Goshen scored
again in the third quarter. Their lead was up
to 14 points. New Havenis drives were halted
by penalties and turnovers. The Dogs lost,
14-0, and their football season was over.
"I think we played a good football game.
We did some things right and we did some
things wrong," said Kirkton.
New Haven's quest for the state title start-
ed in August and it ended just two games
short. The Bulldogs final record, 10 wins and
two losses. Ed Steger, New Haven's all-time
leading rusher, finished his high school career
with 2,927 yards on the ground. The Dogs,
offense scored 284 points during the year
while the defense gave up only 81. A number
of players received conference and state hon-
ors. New Haven was ranked in the state
throughout the year.
"Every player contributed to the team's
success this year," said Kirkton.

If a person was asked about New Haven's
1981 football team they would probably
think of the Varsity Dogs, the football team
that won the NEIAC title and ended up with a
record of 10 wins and 2 losses. But, if one
thought hard, he would remember about
New Haven's other two football teams, the
Junior Varsity and the Freshmen.
The J.V. Football Team finished its season
with a record of 5 wins and 1 loss. "We had a
pretty successful season this year, the play-
ers really worked hard," said Head Coach
The J.V, offense, led by quarterbacks
Mark Miquelon and Scott Eckelbarger,

New Haven's freshmen football team fin-
ished the season with a record of 2 wins and 6
losses. "Although we didn't have a great sea-
son, the freshmen team showed improve-
ment in every game we played," said Head
Coach Chris Hissong.
Playing on the freshmen team, players get
their first exposure to high school football.
"Freshmen football is a big change from ju-

sive plays are more complicated," said His-
The head coach has high hopes for the
frosh: "Our defense really played well near
the end of the season. Our offense was start-

Season of spirit
"Good luck." As the player walked away
from the net, after wishing his opponent good
luck, the tenseness could be seen in the play-
er's eyes. He was defending himself and his
school. I-le gripped his racket extra tight and
proceeded to the spot on the court where he
would soon know the outcome of his match.
l-le looked to the other end of the court and
kept his eyes focused on the opponent. This
scene was repeated time and time again dur-
ing the tennis season. This year's team was a
very young one compared to others in pre-
vious years. Coach Sam Mclnturff said he felt
that the team was filled with a lot of spirit and
full of enthusiasm.
The best records of the season for doubles
came from Jeff Kline and Sam King with 10-
5. The best record for junior varsity belonged
to Dan Kloss with a record of 9-3.
"The team practiced for an hour and a half
daily," said Coach Mclnturff. I-le said the
team's toughest opponent was Homestead.
Although the season was a gloomy one on
the scoreboard, the memories of the fun
times are left behindg the feeling of tennis was
in every player's heart.

Although both the girls' and boys' teams
were young this year, only one senior be-
tween them, their moral was high. With Da-
vid Mulligan coaching the teams, and Mike
Hunter and Tim Laurent as captains, they
improved steadily throughout the year.
All of this started in the middle of a hot,
sweaty August. With this being the first year
for a girls, team, they had six runners. They
averaged six miles every day and 1.9 at
meets. The boys averaged eight to nine miles
at practice and 3.1 at meets.
All home meets were run at the Haven-
hurst Golf Course. The away meets were run
on school grounds and parks. Each course
was different and had its own challenge,
Some were hilly and some were muddy, but
whatever the course, they ran and ran hard.
The season came to an end with the ban-
quet held at Goegline's Reserve. Mike Hunt-
er and Tim Laurent were voted Most Valu-
able Runners and Best Mental Attitude
Award was given to Chris Neher.
Mr. Mulligan summed up the season when
he said, "The won-loss record was not great,

Time affected many things during the '81-
82 school year, including New Haven's boys'
varsity basketball team. There isn't any other
way to describe it. Before the Bulldogs' sea-
son started, many coaches around the area
felt that New Haven had one of the best
basketball teams outside the Summit Athletic
Conference. Despite this encouragement
though, the Dogs lost five out of their first
seven games. A few of the losses had been
two or three point heartbreakers. After that
string of bad luck, the basketball team start-
ed to steadily improve and the Bulldogs' cam-
paign climaxed at the Ft. Wayne Sectionals,
where New Haven won its first tournament
game since 1976.
"At the beginning of the season, a few of
the players thought we'd start winning right
away and we didn't. I saw a lot of little things
the team could improve onf' said Bulldog
head coach, John Hans.
Christmas break did something to the
team. New Haven, to the fans' delight won
eight of its last 11 games to finish the regular
season with a record of 12 wins and 8 losses.
The team's captain, Robbie Clark, seemed to
take command forthe Dogs each game. Near
the end of the season, Brad and Joey Graham
started to pull down countless rebounds for
'iOur defense really improved throughout
the second half of the season. Brad and Joey
really played well. We started to play like a
team," said Hans.
The teamis first opponent in the sectionals
were the Elmhurst Trojans. The game was
predicted to be close, but the Bulldogs domis
nated the court throughout the game.
Against the Trojans, Clark scored 29 points
while the Graham brothers controlled the
boards. Guards John Hans, Tim Hoffer and
Bob DeWaelsche continually applied pres-
sure to Elmhurstis offense.
When the team next played Northrop
though, they didn't come out victors. The
Bulldogs led going into the final minutes of
the third period, but the team's poor shooting
during the second half finally took its toll. The
Bruins slowly caught up and took a com-
manding lead with only minutes left in the
Brad Graham, Robbie Clark, Joey Graham
and John Hans received area honors for their
achievements during the season.

The endless hours of conditioning and the

paid off in the win column, but the pride of

The 1981-82 wrestling season began with seven
lettermen returning. Four of the seven fell in the
same weight class, however, and the season out-
look saw only four weight classes filled.
Getting into the first two weeks of practice things
looked dismal for the Bulldogs as a team, even
though they felt they could and would have some
good individuals. About two weeks before the
opening of regular season, the Dogs acquired Den-
nis Mitchel as heavy-weight, thus filling a hole not
expected to be filled.
The first two matches were wrestled without Ke-
vin Harper, conference and sectional champ at 132

Best g mnastics season
ever for Coach
Gymnastics team meets started off their sea-
son with a boom. New difficulties were learned
and performances were improved. Hit was the
best team I coached in the four years that I
have been heref' said Roberta Bultemeier,
Gymnastics may look easy but not in reali-
ty, take a look at a gymnast performing and
think of the summer training and the hours
spent on that one move, many hours of
stretching and the happiness of finally ac-
complishing the move.
Injuries are a part of gymnastics and always
will be. With the new difficulties being invented
and then performed, every gymnast will or has
been hurt, whether it be a minor bruise or as
major as a broken bone. For those on the bars,
it's usually bruised hips and ripped palms, on
the floor and beam, pulled muscles, and vault
the dreaded shin-splints.
"I think the team worked together," said
Junior Maria Felger. The gymnastic team
worked hard for our school and it showed in the
scores and in the team wins.
"We were more of a family in helping each
other," said senior Jeannie Laurent.
Spotting techniques are important for the
well being of fellow teammates, if the spotter
turns away from a teammate when they need
the extra help, they could get hurt. Support is
the major part in helping a friend with total
concentration. When the gymnast does it for
the first time with the excitement of team
members and the coaches, you can finally set
back and say it was well worth the attempt.
"We were more of a team, " said senior

THROUGHOUT the track season, Jeff Lothamer
placed in numerous discus and shotput events for
the Bulldog team.
HITTING the ground at full-force was just one of
the many things that Bob DeWaelsche did during
track season. She was the team's best sprinter.
If anybody looks back at the year's girls'
track season, he or she will undoubtedly
conclude that the team's depth became a
major factor in the girls' success. Through-
out the year, New Haven was plagued with
several small, but nerve-racking injuries.
Despite this setback though, the lady Bull-
dogs, coached by Dave Mulligan, continual-
ly improved. When their season wound
down to an end, they ultimately captured
the 1982 North Eastern Indiana Athletic
Conference track title.

looked forward to the conference meet,"

The Bulldog distance squad was led by
senior Julie VanTilburg. As the season pro-
gressed, VanTilburg turned into one of the
best distance runners in the area. Led by
determination, she won the SOO-meter run
during N,E.I.A.C, finals.
The girls' 400-meter relay team, made
up of Robin May, Kathy White, Denise Pick-
ett and Barb Hoar, captured first place at
the conference meet. Pickett was New Ha-
ven's main discus and shot thrower.
"I never knew how close our team could
be, like a family. We helped each other
out," said Stacie Bollinger.
"The girls proved to be better than I
thought they would be. There was a lot of
competition between the girls. Overall, I
think the team had a pretty successful sea-
son," said Mulligan.

In order to play baseball at New Haven in
1982, one had to have as much dedication as
talent. The baseball program began to get
under way as early as February 1, when the
pitchers began practicing early in the morn-
ing and late in the day.
"Baseball takes hard work and lots of
time," stated varsity baseball coach Don
Huml. "Playing baseball is much more than
catching or hitting a ball." According to
Coach Huml, baseball requires brain-work as
well as physical ability. Players have to
"learn the system" if they want to compete
successfully with other schools.
Among the outstanding Bulldog players
were seniors Kurt Davis, Chris Graham,
Glenn Brown and Mike Cheviron, along with
juniors Todd Clark and Jeff Fitzgerald.
"It's good to have outstanding individual
performance," remarked varsity baseball
player Todd Clark, "but if all nine players
don't play as a team, then you won't win
"The players are going to have to be in the
game all the way. They must want to play
hard, they must want to win, they must have
pride in themselves and in their school."

celled due to bad weather.

Extracurricular activities were often more than prom-
ised. They were the clubs and groups of people, who,
while not always organized, were the ones who took the
edge off the sometimes bitter days of school and spiced
the ordinarysinto times that were often remembered as
"too great." Friendships that would last a lifetime or at
least until graduation were formed during plays and after
school parties. -
The organizations were learning experiences, too, al-
though the emphasis was not on instruction, but more
often on fun. Foreign language clubs took their students
to other parts of the world sponsored events which in-
cluded holiday parties.
Weel6nds were also made for the Speech Team as
they traveled on less than warm buses to compete with
other area high-schoolers all viaing for a first place. Some
clubs were sports oriented with soccer players, wrestlerf
ettes and olympians banding together.
For whatever reason students joined forces, they came
together to promote their interests, learn a little and gain
friends in the spirit of "Bulldogismg" a spirit that meant
accelling in areas that most schools only hoped for. It was
a spirit that meant dressing in shades of purple, but
having clubs coming out of the shadows in pure gold.

you were being told. He did not

After a few minutes the teach-
er realized no one was under-
standing and switched from
French to English. It was still
hard to understand.
The words French Club slow-
ly sunk into your head. Maybe it
could help, you thought.
After a few minutes of deep
contemplation, you realized that
it would not hurt to try.

had made a start.
As with every club, there were
those who showed up only at the
parties and for the yearbook pic-

worked on the Eiffel Tower for
the French float in the Home-
coming parade and those who
donned their togas to walk along
the Latin Club entry.

the foreign language clubs a hit

played a large part in these par-

No year would be complete
without some type of fund raising
activities. For months in ad-
vance, the girls of the French
Club sewed away on garters to
be given away by another girl to
her date at the Sadie Hawkins

caught up in the hustle and bus-

When it came around to the
banquets the French Club
stood out in the true class which
the French culture has always re-
presented. A dinner at Fort

Whether it was going to the beauty salon for that
special hairstyle or buying corsages for the prom, stu-
dents depended on businesses for their wants and needs.
The streets of New Haven came alive out of the purple
shadows of locked businesgdoorsllas kids walked, drove
or rode the bus to school. Some would stop at McDon-
ald's for a quick breakfast or to Norm's Point for a can of
cool, refreshing pop to start the day.
Although Hall's was often the parents' choice, Pizza
Hut satisfied the true appetite after a ball game.

high school to shoot group pictures of organiza-
tions in late March.
Volume 43 of the New Haven High School Mirage
was printed by the Herff Jones Yearbook Company,
Montgomery, Alabama, using the offset lithography pro-
cess. The 224-page book was printed on 100 pound
enamel paper with a press run of 630 copies. Mr. Jon
Winteregg represented the printer.
The cover is made of 160 pound binder board, dis-
playing the theme, iiShadows of Purple, But Pure
Body copy was set in 10f12 point Souvenir Light
type, while basic captions were printed in 8f9 Souvenir
Light boldface, as were folio tabs. Large group shot
captions were printed in 6 point to save space. Head-
lines throughout the book were set in Souvenir Light,
Souvenir Light Italic, Souvenir Demi, Souvenir Demi
Italic, and Durante.
Each section utilized a modified column layout style,
designed by student staff members. Graphics consist of
2, 4 and 6 point lines as well as 20 percent gray screens
and 100 percent black backgrounds.
Eighty percent of the photos were shot by student
photographers utilizing Tri-X or Ilford film. Black and
white photos were printed in the Publications darkroom
with color processed at Walkeris Studio, Fort Wayne. All
portrait photos and some special events shots were pho-
tographed and printed by Walker's Studio, as well.

Pure gold year collected
"It's a 'commie plotf " Joe St. Henry said
as he worked on his sports pages.
It had been an interesting year for the
yearbook journalists of New Haven High
School. The 1982 Mirage actually began
production in late July at the summer, Ball
State University Journalism Workshop. At
that time, editorship of the publication was
granted to Julie Ball, almost a new-comer to
the staff. Adviser Jim Grim, who was among
the instructors from across the country at
summer workshop, knew Julie and the other
staffers could put out a yearbook that would
make New Haven students proud to call their
Themes for the '82 book took up much of
the first few weeks of publications class once
school started. Shadows of Purple, But
Pure Gold was the staff's choice by a major-
ity voteg purple and gold seemed a natural
for a school which utilized the same colors in
its mascot and for everything else as well.
With the early arrival of the '81 Mirage,
the new staff delved right in and began work-
ing on the '82 book. Pictures were snapped
and printed and copy written and filed as
staffers experimented with layout and de-
In late February, the reality of the '82 Mi-
rage came into question when the adviser
announced he would be resigning at the end
of March, Grim, however, made a vow to "be
dedicated to the end" and remain the publi-
cation's adviser until its final copy reached
the printer. Mrs. Gerry Donahue, Spanish
teacher, replaced Grim in the classroom and
production of the Mirage continued with
Grim showing his face in the classroom to
check on progress from time-to-time.
All year, staff enthusiasm seemed to come
in all forms, 'iBenny Hill" and "Second Cityi'
had nothing on them, From obscene joke tell-
ing to smuggling in Coke and fruit to snack on
while working, the staff never ceased to
The staff honored itself in the spring with a
combined banquet at Three Kings for the
Herald and the Mirage. Later in the night,
some members of the banquet party honored
Grim with a few roles of toilet tissue, which
they tossed into his one-and-only Brookwood
"The commies are behind this-I know,"
St. Henry said as he completed the last of his
spring sports pages. And as the story goes,
the '82 Mirage soon-after became a reality.
The pages, in shadows of purple, reflect one
year at New Haven High School-one year
that was truly golden.

The misty purple shadow of the early morning went away quickly
as the golden sun shone brightly on New Haven High School. A few
cars began to filter into the parking lot and parked themselves in
front-row spots. Minutes later, a rush of cars drove into the parking
lot. Students lingered in the parking lot until the last possible minute,
then they went in to class.
As the year began, football dominated each student's life in one
way or another. Whether they played the game, cheered at Home-
coming as we beat the Bellmont Braves or wore purple and gold
during spirit week, every student helped our team have a winning
The first nine weeks of school flew by and it was time for the
holidays. As Thanksgiving passed and Christmas neared, students
made holiday plans, collected cans for the most successful can drive
ever at New Haven and looked forward to the dance in the gym
before we were left to begin our vacation.
The students had more "vacations" than they had expected. Re-

cord snowfall and freezing rain caused students to miss two or three
days a week after Christmas vacation. When spring began to show
and the snow melted, there were a few fog delays. But worse than the
fog was the water the melted snow had left behind.
The Flood of '82 is something that will stand out in the minds of all
students who were evacuated from their homes and who helped
sandbag the dikes. Students with parental permission were allowed to
miss school on March 17 to help the students of the Fort Wayne
Community Schools sandbag.
And as if the weather had already done its worst to us, we were
slapped with a heavy snowstorm during spring vacation. The weather

Fashions for the '82 school year seemed to range from
the very conservative looks of Izods, deck shoes, argyle
socks and below-the-knee wool skirts to the new wave looks
of headbands, brightly striped tees and mini-skirts. The best
way to describe the fashions of '82 was that anything went.
Great groups began to come back to the Coliseum. The
J. Geils Band and Ozzy Ozbourne were among a few who
appeared. WXKE sponsored an outdoor concert at the
Foehlinger Theatre entitled the "Sandbag Boogie I." They
promised another '4Sandbag Boogien for the summer.
As the school year had unwound to the final nine weeks,
students' attitudes seemed to get better with anticipation of
the warm days ahead.
Spring Flings added to the otherwise unbroken day of
school. Students played Frisbee, basked in the golden rays
and just chatted with their friends.
