Indiana 46774 " A haven all its 2 — Opening Looking for the routines of life Routine life exists with it. We are all comforted in it. As each person dreams his dreams, sets his goals, and designs his life, he looks for something consistent in which to take refuge. Each person looks for something which can be his " Haven. " Despite the stark institutional outside look of New Haven High School, the inside holds many comforts and securities for its students. Here students can work into a daily routine, find friends with common interests, delve into academic or vocational varied activities. There are times of excitement in all seasons. In the fall the Homecoming victory over Woodlan, 14-0, coupled with another NEIAC championship and a play off appearance for a third straight year provided school and community interest. In addition the town of New Haven decided to build its pride in a new program called " Up with New Haven " which is designed to promote community identity and business growth. New Haven had a new sense of ident ity. As the school year rolled on, so did the development of the students who frequented the halls. The good feelings promoted by fighting the flood in ' 82 were carried over into the benevolent causes of the Can Drive in December and the Red Cross Blood Drive in April.

DURING SCHOOL HOURS, one could probably find New Haven ' s parking lot full of students ' cars. JUNIOR JOHN LONG prepares the weights for Mike Bodine, who will attempt the lift during the noon hour competition. 4 — Opening HOMECOMING is a big event at New Haven as Varsity Football players wave out to the crowd during the parade before the Woodlan Unusual weather doesn ' t dampen us When there was a cause, the students rallied in support. The winter season, while not filled with many snow days as had been the situation the past few years, brought much needed change to the routine. It seemed so much easier to be in school when the chill factor was — 30° outside. But no snow days came until everyone had given up hope for an " unscheduled " vacation March 21, the first day of spring, brought the first winter storm which followed record setting temperatures in the 70 ' s in February. While the weatherman was having trouble making up his mind, the basketball team rolled to a conference championship in basketball as our " haven " was unaffected by external turmoil. Joey Graham and Tom Byrd shared the television spotlight for their outstanding play with each being named " Player of the Week " by Channel 21. As winter changed to spring the " haven " took on a new look. Gone were the winter woolies as spring fashions were seen in the halls. Spring was officially initiated with the return of the traditional " Spring Fling. " The school year wound down quickly with the busy time of ban- quets and awards. David Police and Kathy Krueckeberg left their marks finishing number one and number two in their class, respective- ly. It had been a good haven for their academic work. In looking back at the year it was one of notable accomplishment for many and some accomplishment for all, as each was glad for " A haven all its own. " DURING THE long day at school, senior Jody Kintz takes a short break in the office waiting to get in to discuss an absence problem with Mr. Jones. Opening — 5 a haven all its C ' -k jj own O T.V. production member Ron Frederick looks around to see what he can film next at Spring Fling. Kim Davis is seen here signing in at the atten- dence window after being absent the day be- fore. Cheerleader Diane Bultemeyer laughs while doing a cheer at one of our basketball games. Student Life Activities for students began as soon as school started with homecoming just around the corner. It seemed to take only a little while to be in full swing again. Some faces were new, but many were familiar, and it was good to see those old acquaintances. School was a haven. It was a haven for all who used it; it became the world which we revolved around for eight hours a day. Students chose from many activi- ties. Some did all they could; some did none; however, the activities touched nearly every student as being involved helped us grow. Memories won ' t fade. The snow days that didn ' t happen seemed to be a thing of the past. In their place we got fog. The year continued some traditions like Christmas can drive, Sadie Haw- kins, and spring fling, but also held something new and different such as the April 30 Beach Party dance. Our school is a place of life. Stu- dents are involved in many activities as they retreat to their haven which is unlike any other. Cathy Demetriades smiles at friends, wlio see her with her face done up for sectionals. Two friends laugh as they show each other the mark from where they donated blood. Student life — 7 LYING IN THE SUN can be fun if it is done with friends as we see liere with sophomores Hollie Mathias and Holly Raver. Summer — Three Months of Memories Summer is a time for fun, sun, relaxation and some even say romance. As we watch the days slowly drift by, we look back over the past three months and see a variety of memories. There were the first days of summer when all we cared about was getting a tan so we were not embarrassed when we put on the new bathing suit. Then there were the days filled with Softball and baseball practices and games. Weekends were spent at the lake for many students. Some own a cottage while others drive their mobile home up. Boating, skiing and tubing are always popular activities at the lake. Oh yes, we cannot overlook the romance that seems to bloom in the summer. The long walks in the warm evenings and that magical first kiss have a lasting impression on many students. Summer is a great time of the year, but by the end of summer most students look for- ward to the first day of school, seeing all their old friends, the first football game and of course, homecoming. WASHING THE CAR, junior Sandy Trowbridge shows us the correct way to keep it clean. ROMANCE BLOOMS in the summer or at least it did for junior Craig Ladig and sophomore Linda Gabet. SOFTBALL and baseball practices and games take up a great deal of time for many NHHS stu- dents. AT GLENBROOK SQUARE. Gina Geise looks at mini-skirts for her new back-to-school look.

New shoes, clothes and school supplies were a must for a year at the building on Green Road. Television commercials, brochures and newspaper ads ur ged students to buy Lee, Jordache, Calvin Klein and Sasson jeans at the price they could afford. Many students (armed with mom and dad ' s credit cards) did their shopping at Glen- brook Square and Southtown mall while oth- ers made their purchases at such places as Target and Value City. Nikes and jeans found their way into stu- dent closets once again this year. Guys and gals still wore the preppy look. Shetland sweaters, oxford and polo shirts and top- siders were some of the big sellers. WAKING UP in the morning takes a little getting used to. Barb Meyer begins her morning routine before she goes to school. Many girls began to lean toward the new fashions; Mini-skirts and legwarmers pro- vided a new wave look. The tuxedo-look in- fluenced detailed and ruffled blouses and bow ties. This look seemed to go over as big as the preppy look. A new hairstyle was not to be overlooked as part of the school fashion update ritual. Guys began to wear their hair shorter in the front and longer in the back. The popular Olivia Newton-John hairstyle began to make its influence as a few girls got the hairstyle with many more to follow. Notebooks, Bic pens and pencils were usu- ally bought at one of the local drugstores, such as Dan Purvis or Walgreen ' s. Getting ready for that first day of school seemed to take half the summer but to be in style seemed worth it. A NEW HAIRSTYLE may be necessary for an- other year at school. Brad Everrett has his hair cut at the barber in preparation of that first day of school. Back-to-SchooI— 11 TOO EARLY IN THE MORNING classes some- times tend to make one drowsy. Brian Kurek catches up on a little sleep during recordkeeping. School sometimes not so serious Cars filled the parking lot as the students began to arrive. Some students climbed into others cars to share a little gossip before the school day began. As 8:00 neared the people in the parking lot slowly shifted toward the doors of the school. " Before school I like to sit in my car, listen to the stereo and finish a cigarette, " said senior Brian Worden. Clusters of students began to form in the Commons discussing weekend plans, the day ' s tests and homework. Many students do different things before going to class. " I usually sit upstairs by my locker and talk to friends who walk by in the hall, " said Holly Raver, sophomore. " We walk around the halls and sabotage HISTORY CLASS is a required subject that ju- niors must take. Craig Fox does his assignment as Dawn Kinney looks on. Mrs. Holt ' s classroom, " agreed Curt Ester- line and Andy Police who are juniors. As the morning bell rang, the students parted separate ways, only to trudge to their first period classes. " I ' m glad I have Parenting first period. I think if I had Government I couldn ' t keep my eyes open, " said one senior student. The classes dominated the school day with a half-hour set aside for lunch which provided a needed break from the classroom curricu- lum. An activity period was optional for those who wanted to give up their half-hour study period. The school days sometimes seem as though they will never end, but as a person gets closer and closer to graduation the school days seem to get much shorter. I - CONCERT CHOIR is sometimes a bit less than serious. Seniors Beth Brockmann and Dawn Christianer take a break from singing.

Carrie Fedele, Ellen Felten and Renee McQueen enjoy the ride. 14 — Homecoming HALFTIME CEREMONIES during the Homecom- ing football game included Queen Christa Swy- gart and John Hans. New traditions intensify spirit Changes were the issue as Homecoming approached. The absence of a bonfire dam- pened the spirits of some, but the anticipation of the activities to come brought smiles to many students ' faces. As committees were formed and chairpersons selected, work got under way. Spirit week lacked the usual en- thusiasm normally seen at this time of the year. This was due to the fact that the week was shortened to intensify spirit into three days rather than five. It did not take long for seniors to rebel by creating their own spirit days. Punk and pur- ple day helped the Class of ' 83 win the spirit award for the week. Seniors also won the class banner competition and the class chain competition. Among the week ' s other activi- ties were " Sexy Senior, " which consisted of five senior muscle men. Kerry Burke won this honor. Toby Beard walked away with the " Mr. Irresistable " title. Among the highlights of Friday ' s pep session was the WMEE foot- ball presentation of the " Team of the Week " trophy. Thursday night was set aside for the annu- al powder puff game and the community ral- ly. With the help of head coach Jeff Fitzger- ald, the seniors and sophomores defeated the juniors and freshmen, coached by Mark Shaffer, by a score of 6-0. After the game, senior Christa Swygarf was crowned Home- coming Queen. " You ' ve got another thing coming " seemed to be the official Homecoming theme song as it was heard throughout the week during school and at pep rallies. Tradition was seen once again in the pa- rade that took place Friday afternoon. Homeroming — 15 New traditions intensify spirit -It was a lot of hard work and it took a great amount of time. There was a big sigh of relief when it was all over, " said Jennifer Mann, chairperson of the parade committee. First place in the float competition was ;, jv the junior class while the French Club won the non-float category. Cars began to arrive at the stadium as early as 5:00. The chilly autumn air did not affect the crowd ' s morale. With a record at- tendance, the bleachers were packed in no time The Mirage staff earned some extra money by selling the balloons that were re- leased after the first touchdown. The main event of the week ended victori- ously for t. Bulldogs with a score of 14-0 over the Woodlan Warriors. Following the game, students celebrated the victory at the Homecoming dance which was held in the auditeria. Homecoming is a time that most everyone is involved in some way or another. Some work on the class float while others just sup- port their team. Spirit days brought much anticipation as freshmen to seniors dressed up to show their spirit. The growing traditions of Homecoming had several different effects on the school and its students. Some were elated while the ones who had been working and organizing everything for the special week were ex- hausted and glad it was all over, but each student would have fond memories of Home- coming " 82. f POWDER-PUhh tUUlBALL activities took place on the Thursday night before Homecoming. Seniors Kathy White. Robin May and Cathy De- metriades make a play. TUF HOMECOMING PARADE allowed many students to ride on the floats.

" Teahouse " production is total school effort I After presenting a Chinese musical last year the Drama Club decided to try it again only in a play. " The Teahouse of the August Moon " was presented in the NHHS Audi- teria on the evenings of November 18 and 20. Directed by Dennis Eller, the show fea- tured Rich Gongaware as Sakini and was sup- posed to feature Curt Hunter as Col. Purdy. However, at the last moment Curt was hospi- talized and Eller took over the role. Sharon Darlington played Lotus Blossum, who was the servant to Captain Fisby, played by Joel Reed. The play told of the attempts of the Ameri- can occupation forces in Okinawa to incubate the ideals of democracy in an Oriental vil- lage. When asked how the play went senior Rick Vincenski said, " I was skeptical at first be- cause I wasn ' t sure the people (audience) wanted to see another Chinese play, but in the end I found out that it was enjoyed by all who came to see it. " In his " Directors Comments " Mr. Eller stated, " The show truly represents a group effort. For the first time students, parents, community members, businesses and NHHS faculty members have worked side-by-side to help make !.is production a reality. " Eller summed up the show when he said, " Well done! " Fail piay 19 .%- MUNCHIES SOMETIMES strike at weird times of the night and donuts fulfill the strange cravings.

WEEKEND ACTIVITIES were sparse some- times, but sports events usually dominated when there was nothing else to do. In a game against Homestead. Tom Byrd (13) keeps the ball away from the opponent while John Hans (11) helps block. The Bulldogs went on to beat the Home- stead Spartans. 20— Weekends PIZZA HUT is the favorite after-game spot for most New Haven students. A pitcher of soda, and a deep-pan pizza seemed to satisfy the specta- tors appetites the most. Maria Wilson and Erin Maroney eat their pizza. Bring on those Fridays, Saturda ;s, and Sunda{;s Five days a week students trudge into school to go through the learning routine. Seven hours per day are spent learning sub- jects and verbs from Mrs. Campbell, the total of X and y from Mr. Nietert. But come Friday night it ' s time to breakout and enjoy, relax, and or work. Two days of time are spent away from the school trying to change up so we can come back refreshed and ready to go. One major school activity on the weekend is athletic contests particularly football and basketball. For the participants, the contests give them a chance to put into practice all of the skills they have learned from the hard week of practice. In a sense it is a celebration of exuberance. For the spectators the contests offer a chance for release of emotions pent up dur- ing the week. After having been told to be quiet six periods a day, they can let it all out. The feeling after winning a close game or def eating an intense rival can be carried with you for the whole next week. Others may wish to get away from school and head for the arcades or the malls just to kill some time and be with good friends. This year the arcades attracted many people, playing Galaxian and Frogger. Some would stay until the weekly allowance was gone. The malls were cheaper because looking didn ' t cost anything. A stroll up and down the halls there was relaxing. El m ■ 1 Km mki m K ■ % 9 WJ %M - ■P ill Jl JH A BIG MAC ATTACK was all it took for students to hop in their cars and drive to McDonald ' s.

Weekends— 21 TAHL GLASS and Brian Redmon like to spend their weekends playing Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and other popular arcade games. w ' TAV A time to spend working, relaxing, or competing in our favorite place But for some, the week-ends meant added responsibilities including working at home or for some of the local merchants. Several stu- dents work at restaurants such as McDon- alds, Rax, or Richards. Other students work at local filling stations such as Colonial Oil and Standard. Working does not allow for free time, but for many students, it is a time to get away from the routine of school to earn some mon- ey to take care of expenses which come up. The week-ends also provide a time for just plain sleeping and relaxing. Many students like to go to the lake in the spring and fall to be with friends, relax in the sun, or generally killing time. The winters at the lake are good for skating or snowmobiling. MINDY RALSTON. Eileen Vorich. and Julie Dun- lap got together to celebrate Lynnette Mattes ' birthday.

WORKING AT her desk is office secretary, Mrs Fritcha. 24 — Behind the scenes Working hard to make School run snnoothli; Our school has many behind the scenes people such as the cafeteria ladies who al- ways have lunch ready, the janitors who keep the school in good condition and the many secretaries. Mrs. Bandt is in charge of graduation diplo- mas, programs, and cap and gowns. She also does the bookkeeping, pays the bills, and anything during the day that has to do with money. Mrs. Bandt has made and counted a lot of change over the two years she ' s been here. On top of all this, she is Mr. Dela- grange ' s secretary. When asked about her job, Mrs. Bandt replied, " It ' s very enjoyable, a lot of variety. " Another person who is very important is the guidance secretary Mrs. Weida. All of the counselors correspondance in and out of the office is done through her, in addition to any thing that has to do with permanent records. Labelling pictures and such is also one of Mrs. Weida ' s tasks. " I really enjoy my job and the personal contact with the students. It ' s a good feeling when you see someone succeed, " said Mrs. Weida. Mr. Lake ' s and Sumpter ' s secretary, Mrs. Fritcha is also very important to the school. She is in charge of the cheerleaders in addi- tion to her normal job responsibilities. Mrs. Fritcha has to type the athletic schedules and arrange for the buses to all events. She also does other athletic organization. " It ' s very interesting. I like sports, " said Mrs. Fritcha about her job. PREPARING FOR the days lunch are tu cooks.

EVEN STUDENTS get Schrader helps each mor window. act as senior Mary ing at the attendance Behind the scenes — 25 Senior skit " Live ' ' highlights Showtime After having had the threat of losing the talent show from some negative comments printed in last years newspaper, students seemed more appreciative of having this year ' s show. Mr. Henke did a terrific job of introducing the acts. He let the students know by his comments that they were being a good audi- ence. The students waited patiently and qui- etly when things did not go quite as smoothly as they should have. And when things such as microphones and stageprops finally did get worked out students applauded and made the person on stage feel more comfortable. There were many acts in this year ' s show. They consisted of a variety of different styles. Singing acts seemed to be the most popular as anything from mellow songs to rock and roll was heard. The Senior Skit was taken from the show Saturday Night Live. The seniors did a good job of imitating the styles, and comments of the real actors on the show. Many students were not in just one act but several. Seniors seemed to dominate this year ' s show, al- though many underclassmen were also in- volved. " Overall 1 think the show proved that there is a great deal of talent at New Haven High School, " said senior Craig Eakright. SHOWING HIS confidence from his newly found protection is junior Brian Workman while seniors Cathy White and Dawn Christianer accompany him. SWINGING ACROSS the stage can be a lot of fun as senior Steve Sims demonstrates. 26— Showtime ' 83 IMITATING THE show Saturday Night Live for the Senior Skit are seniors Greg Jackson. Tim Hoffer.

THE CAST of the Friday night performance steps out onto the stage to take its bou.. Students ' play takes to stage The production of Our Town meant some- thing different to everyone who viewed, par- ticipated and directed it. Our Town was the first student supervised play ever done in the school. Lead by student-director, Kevin Bassett, 48 cast members and a production staff of 43 members staged the play three nights, Janu- ary 27, 28 and 29. " I was numb during all the performances. After it all was over, I was let-down, but all plays are that way, " commented Kevin Bas- sett. The major parts in the play were played by Rick Vincenski as the stage manager. Rich Gongaware as George Gibbs, Sharon Darling- ton, Amy Felten and Diana Henry all as Emi- ly Webb, Curt Hunter as Dr. Gibbs, Eileen Vorich, Renee Gremaux, and Julie Leffel all as Mrs. Gibbs, Joel Reed as Mr. Webb. Kathy Krueckeberg and Leah Taylor as Mrs. Webb, Rik Yingling as Wally Webb. Leslie Wood, Ellen Felten and Kim Odem as Rebecca Gibbs, and Gary Stroh played the role of Simon Stimson. " Being on the stage and having a big part was scary for me at first, because I never had that big of a part before, " said senior Rick Vincenski. " It was the first play I was ever in. I felt stupid sitting there looking like a dead per- son. But all in all the play was really fun. " said senior Cindv Blue. % AFTER SCHOOL Gary Stroh and a few friends go to Gary ' s house for some basketball fun. The dai; doesn ' t end with the 3:05 bell For each student, life at home was differ- ent. After a long day of school a few students were pressured to face the task of mowing the lawn. While many were lucky and sat back and turned on the T.V. to watch their favorite soap. Many were shooting baskets and others surprised their mothers and made supper before they arrived home from work. Cruising to the mall leads students to the nearest gas station to put their last two bucks in the tank, and some were stuck at home with a car that would not run. Eventually by the weekend those people were out and about. Friday night life seemed to be filled with athletic events. Many just came to see the friends while others were there to cheer on the Football team to another victory, al- though there were some who had to stay home to watch " Dallas " . Many who have jobs ended up meeting their friends at Pizza Hut after a game to share the latest gossip. Homework, cruising and listening to " good tunes " and sitting back with some good friends seemed to be some of the more popu- lar things to do. CATHY DEMETRIADES is seen here pumping gas at Citgo before heading to work. PAUL MELIN was assigned the task of mowing his neighbor ' s lawn after school. 30 — After school ANGIE BAINES cooks supper after school for the family when they get home.

CUDDLIN ' COUNTRY style are sophomores Toby Beard and Rise Williams. Dogpatch scene returns for another week-end in March Each year when Sadie Hawkins rolls around the girls get to experience what the boys go through to get a date. Many girls never do get the nerve to ask a guy to go with them, although many others do which allows them to relate to how the guys feel before and after they ask the girl out. If a girl finally asks someone she could have an enjoyable evening full of fun, games, and dancing. This year, as always, proved to be a worthwhile venture. Many clubs set up booths to raise money for their organiza- tions. For entertainment one could sample some of the many booths such as the Junior Olympics sponsored by the Junior Class, the Cake Walk sponsored by the Student Council, or the Basketball Shoot sponsored by the Track Team. If revenge is what inter- ests your date, then the German Club ' s Teacher Dunking Booth or the F.C.A. ' s jail where someone could be locked up for five minutes, is where you wanted to be. Above all this activity was the musical entertainment. This year found the stu- dents knee slappin ' and slow dancin ' to the band Endgame. As Endgame belted out song after song, students began to let them- GAZING INTO each others eyes are King and Queen Gary Hook and Senior Nancy Wolf. selves go. Following the dances, students settled down and got ready for the marriage cere- mony, with guys on one side of the gym and girls on the other. When the word is said the guys take off running. The girls are then supposed to chase after their guy in order to marry him. This leaves many girls standing discouraged in the middle of the gym floor while others are right on the heels of their guys. After finally being caught, the guy is dragged back to the center of the floor and the ceremony is continued. As a final touch to the ceremony " Marryin " Sam " says " You may kiss your catch. " This year ' s theme was " Country Cudd- lin ' " which semmed to be appropriate for the occasion. The King and Queen of Sadie Hawkins are known as Li ' l Abner and Dai- sey Mae. The titles this year were taken by Gary Hook and Nancy Wolfe who were also last year ' s Li ' l Abner and Daisey Mae. Sen- ior Robin May stated " Overall I think it was a lot of fun. It was set up really nice and it was well organized. I especially liked the square dancing.

SOME OF THE dance hall girls, pose for a picture for Dennis Eller. Hard work pays off in Oklahoma MIKE MCKINLEY AND Cindy Shrage pose for a picture for director Dennis Eller. This year ' s cast put much effort into the spring musical Oklahoma. They worked very hard in trying to get it put together in only a month and a half. They had lots of practices but it all paid off when they earned a standing ovation at their performance. The directors Dennis Eller, and Charles Henke, worked hard getting the cast blocked into the right places, and making the cast speak and sing loud enough to be heard. The musical this year was a western. Curly, played by Rick Vincenski, falls in love with Laurey, played by Leslie Wood. Jud, played by Dennie Mitchel, gets jealous and mad at Curly because he got Laurey instead of him. Jud tried to hurt Curley but Aunt Eller, played by Cindy Schrage, stops him just in time. Ado Annie, played by Denise Burnham has a terrible time deciding whom she loves better, the peddler, played by Ke- vin Bassett or Will Parker, played by Joel Reed.

She also choreographed the dance hall girls ' routine. Some of the dancers were: Shawna Benson. Kelly Krieger, Lora Fletcher, and others. Overall this year ' s spring musical went off very well. The cast and directors did a great job! Oklahoma 35 AT THE ANNUAL Spring Concert New Haven High School ' s Swing Choir performs its final number of the year along with former members. Performances given throughout area Each year the New Haven High School Bands and Chorus get to display their talents by performing concerts. A lot of time, pa- tience, practice and determination is put fourth by each organization to insure their audiences of a good show. The Concert Choir had another busy year. They performed several concerts around Christmas time. They sang at Lincoln Nation- al Bank, Brighton Hall Nursing Home, Sunny- mede School, and on television in WKJG Channel 33 ' s " Carols for Christmas. " The Choir performed a total of eight numbers at their Spring concert. Finally they ended the year by singing " The Hands of Time " and " Ever Since the World Began " at gradu- ation. The Swing Choir sang for various people throughout the year. They performed at Goeglein ' s Reserve several times, the Sum- mit Club, Harding High School, the Baer Field Hilton and the New Haven High School Auditeria. The Bulldog Bands also had another busy year. The Marching Band was busy all sum- mer and fall long, performing in parades and at football games. The pep and concert bands had the chance to perform in front of many audiences and spectators.

" Band and cho Warm weather brings out the " fever " in all As the warm summer weather rolls around, students find it difficult to sit cooped up in a classroom. Spring Fling gives them the chance to go outside, play games, listen to music and enjoy the fresh breeze and the warm sunshine. While walking around during Spring Fling students can be seen doing a number of dif- ferent things such as throwing frisbees, play- ing football, tennis, soccer or just laying around enjoying the free time. Senior Gayle Eytcheson said, " I especially like Spring Flings because it gives you a chance to see what the weather is outside since our school has so few windows. " The cafeteria on Spring Fling days fixes little brown bags full of food that are easy to carry outside to eat. This way students can take their lunches outside and get some sun while they are eating them and when they are finished they can begin to do whatever pleases them. Teachers seem to think it is a good idea because when it comes to the end of the year students seem to get restless and non-atten- tive. With the help of Spring Flings teachers have an easier time keeping students ' minds on their work. fe wm CHASING EACH other around the parking lot are seniors Todd Ciark and Joe Graham.

Full day required for Prom preparations Getting ready for the prom is for some more exciting than the prom itself. There is so much to do and, usually, by the time dates are established so little time. " There is a lot that has to be done before the prom. It ' s really lots of fun, in fact, the anticipation is probably more fun than the actual dance, " said Susan Eytcheson. Deciding on the evening ' s apparel was the first major decision. Most guys decided to rent tuxedos and the girls wore traditional formal dresses this year. Showing up in the same dress as someone else is always a big fear for girls. " I bought my dress at a bridal shop because all of the dresses at the mall were so similar, " stated Jill Brown. Other girls had their gowns made or ordered them from out of town to lessen the possibility of seeing their dress on another. After couples decided on what to wear there were corsages and boutennieres to pick out, plans to make, and dinner reservations to take care of, not to mention tickets to buy at nine dollars per couple. When the big day finally arrived there were still plenty of things to do. " I think I had 100 things to do before I actually left for the prom. I wanted to lay out, but there just wasn ' t time, " said Kim Mattes. On Saturday the flowers and tuxes had to be picked up, as well as all of the other last minute things. Many girls went all out and had their hair done and those who decided to do their own left some extra time in case of disaster. The baseball team had a double header and track team members ran in the Harding Invitational on prom day making for an even more hectic afternoon for them. " My mom and dad had to pick up my tux because I was playing. By the time I got home I only had time for a nap before I had to leave again, " said baseball player Jeff Fitzgerald. After an hour or so of smiling and posing for pictures it was finally time for the prom- goers to be on their way. 40 — Prom preparation WERLING ' S RENTED out tuxedos this year.

Evening at Scottish Rite one to rememher Following a dinnner on the town, couples arrived at their destination of the Scottish Rite Ballroom. Dimmed lights, candles, and music by the band Endgame set the mood for the 142 couples who attended the 1983 Ju- nior Senior Prom. Burgundy and dusty rose colored balloons floated through the air and silver stars hung from the ceiling. As the court was announced they walked through a gazebo on to the stage. Last year ' s Queen Diane Bultemeyer crowned her suc- cessor Cyndi Romine and 1982 King Kirk Salerno gave his crown to this year ' s winner Rod Fritcha. Junior Babs Metzger sang the theme song " Just You and 1 " with the band while the king and queen danced their tradi- tional solo. The night quickly came to an end, as cou- ples left after receiving their souvenir glass- es. Following the dance some couples went to the after-prom at Glenbrook ' s ice-skating rink while others chose to attend parties and socialized with friends. On Sunday a few peo- ple headed for the lake or other resorts, but many just worked on catching up on their sleep lost form the previous night. " It was a great time, but it went too fast, " said Mary Erbelding of this year ' s Prom. SENIOR COURT attendants Kim Steiner and John Ashbaugh receive flowers as they are being announced.

Honors bestowed to those who excelled The annual Awards Day was held in the auditeria on May 13, 1983. Most of the awards were presented to seniors, although the top five students of each class and the top fifteen seniors were presented with outstand- ing Bulldog pins and also a standing ovation. Mrs. Annette Campbell received the well-de- served Paul Goeglein Award, along with a standing ovation. Another faculty member receiving a stand- ing ovation was Mr. Verl Oberlin when he was presenting the " 1 Dare You " awards. The two students receiving the awards were Karen Augustine and Michael Feldman. Other students receiving awards were Tim Laurent, the Moser Award: Wendy Raver. Outstanding Female Athlete; Ulla Keranen and Wiveka Bergstrom, International Awards; Cathy Stevens and Julie Gremaux, French Awards; Dan Peters, German; and Kathy Krueckeberg, Latin Award.

The New Haven Rotary Club gave Dave Police a scholarship for the highest four year average. This year ' s Awards Day was very success- ful. " Participation from community organiza- tions and businesses was the largest ever, and the conduct of the students was good. " commented Mr. Delagrange.

PRESENTERS JENNIFER MANN and Amy Felten give class president Joey Graham one of his many awards. SENIORS SEEM to be enjoying the program, but most are looking forward to the dance. 46 — Dinner Dance Senior Dinner Dance is one last event For many seniors, the dinner dance was the last get together outside of commence- ment. It was a time to enjoy the company of fellow classmates before saying good-bye. This night is one that most seniors will re- member for a long time to come. The dinner dance which was held at Goeg- lein ' s Reserve started with a delicious dinner of ham or prime rib. After the students fin- ished their dinners, the program began with a slide sound show. The slides were of seniors and their baby pictures. Immediately follow- ing the slide show was the presentation of awards. Some seniors were not very pleased with a few of the awards, but the general outlook was good. The awards should not have been taken so seriously by some be- cause these are just done in fun. After the forty-five minute program was over, the seniors danced the night away with Endgame. The music came in all types from rock and roll to slow and mellow to square dance. Almost everyone was dancing and having a good time. It was one very memora- ble evening. RECEIVING THE AWARDS for most popular are Joey Graham and Diane Bultemeyer. Both seem to be elated. i MOST SENIORS were dancing and having a good time, cspcc ' - IIv Tracy Tutwiler. The comn were good on the band Endgame. Dinner Danv.; — 47 DURING THE COMMENCEMENT exercises, not too many seniors could be found with smiles on their faces, but some did manage to speak to the person behind them. Speeches, memories, good-b{;es — all Speeches were prepared, parties were all planned, and the Seniors of ' 83 ' were all in their places, all ready for that special day called Graduation, the special day when we put all our high school memories behind, and make ready to create new ones. May 21 was a joyous day for many; as some prepared to party, others prepared to embark upon a whole new life. Our gradu- ates this year included 46 honor society members, designated by having worn the gold cord attached to their gowns, and two foreign exchange students, all of whom were very proud to be a part of the graduating class of 1983. The honor of Valedictorian is one which can be accepted with pride. The honor this year was given to David G, Police. Yet not far behind we find the Salutatorian, which is an honor equally as important. This honor was given to Kathy L. Krueckeberg. After the traditional processional song. Gradueliun — 49 AS GRADUATION brought tears to some it brought smiles to others. Here Jeannie Shultz and Beth Brockmann show their emotion. become part of something " Free yy " Pomp and Circumstance, " there were many other songs to follow. These songs were a medley of " The Hands of Time " and " Ever Since the World Began. " These songs had a special meaning for all, for they pre- sented a message of past happenings and new beginnings. This year ' s commencement speaker wasn ' t just any ordinary commencement speaker; this year ' s speaker was special. Verl Oberlin, this year ' s speaker touched the hearts of many seniors. Not only was he retir- ing, but we were the last Senior Class he was to have acquaintances with. He left a lasting impression upon the minds of many seniors. From the beginning of his speech to the end, a laugh and a tear were shared by many. " Presentation of Diplomas, " the time had finally come when all was to be said and done; thirteen years of trials and hardships were now speaking for themselves, for we had accomplished a major stepping stone in our lives — one which was to be remembered for years to come. Then came tassle turning which meant we were now free, but not only free, as our class motto states, " Free to be what 1 am with the hope of becoming what God intended me to be. " THINKING OF what it will be like to leave High School was enough to bring a moment of sadness !or Sharon Darlington. PERFORMING IN the choir during graduation was enough to bring a smile to Maria Felger ' s face, as she sang away. 50 — Graduation Graduation— 51 u A haven own Wearing shorts for " Spring Fling, " sopho- mores Dawn Hockemeyer and Kim Sowers spend a few minutes before school talking.

Cheers rang out as class pride generated into enthusiasm for our haven. There was no getting around it as each student felt loyalty for the school, but beneath it all was a deep-seated loyalty for the various classes. Seniors, of course, were the ones at the center of the class loyalty as they strived to make this year the " Best ever " as had every senior class. Yes, this was its own unique year with each class setting its own identity. The seniors were proud of the spirit sticks they won at the pep sessions. The juniors hung loose and were known to look for fun. The sopho- mores were organizers, trying new things like Beach Party dances more for fun than anything else. The fresh- men, well they were here getting used to our school and its traditions. It ' s really hard to measure their class per- sonality, but it will soon surface. In the " haven all its own " walked all kinds of people — people that made this year the good year that it was. Ctieerleaders, players, and fans alike cheer for the Bulldog team at the Sectional contest against Bishop Luers. While changing a flat tire, junior Jill Graft laughs about the situation.

It all begins with book fees and ends with cap and gown costs. No one ever imagines that your last year in high school can also be your most expensive year in high school. Because not only do you have to rent your cap and gown, but there are other things which have to be purchased in order to make your senior year complete, things such as announcements, class keys and rings, tickets, and many other items. Now these things are not necessities but in order to make your senior year all it can be, you would want to purchase these items. On top of all these expenses there is the cost of clothes you would want to buy in order to keep up with the latest styles and fash- ions. Therefore this adds to the many oth- er expenses which are imposed upon sen- iors. If you have a part time job this often proves to be very useful in helping to cov- er some of these expenses. Fortunately senior costs are stretched out throughout the year to ease the trouble of having to pay it all in one lump sum. So when the year finally comes and you are all anxious and excited about being a senior make, sure you anticipate the cost of being a senior. MAKING correct change was often a problem RECEIVING your cap and gown was often an EVERYTHING costs in life, some things just a as seen here Karen Zuercher awaits her exciting thing as Ken Isenbarger shows here. little more than others as Senior Craig Eak- change. ight notices here when picking up cap and Seniors (Bruder-Franklin) Steven Bnider Diane Buhcmcyer — Gymnastics 9, Cheerleading 9, 10. 11. 12.

Mirage 12 Lisa Franklin Hello, Dad — I mean Mr. Many students at New Haven High School have a parent who is employed as a teacher. Having a parent as a teacher has many advantages but also many dis- advantages. Some advantages are possi- bly getting inside help in classes that are a problem or getting the benefit of the doubt because the parent is a friend. Some dis- advantages are another teacher telling the parent that their son or daughter is doing poorly in their class or is misbehaving and not paying attention. Senior Tim Hoffer said, " It ' s not really that bad having my dad teach at the high school; in fact, it ' s kind of fun sometimes. " Several of the teacher-child combinations include the Hoffers, the Mitchels, the Sipes, the Hostetlers, and the Hans. There are so many, if fact, that most students do not even give the parent- child relationship much thought. RON AND TIM Hoffer often meet each other in the halls as both have interests in the business department, one as a teacher and one as a student. Seniors — 57 Years of Hard Work Pay Off HONOR SOCIETY members and their parents enjoy the good food and conversation at the ban- quet held at Goegleins Reserve. Presenting a trophy to the valedictorian, Dav Police, is Mr. Delagrange. The National Honor Society is a pro- gram set up to commend those students who obtain at least an 8.5 grade point average every grading period for four years. There are 49 students in the 1983 Honor Society. The students attended a banquet this year that was held at Goeg- lein ' s Reserve. At the banquet, the stu- dents were given a certificate of achieve- ment and a gold cord that is to be worn at commencement. The honor society also has officers. These are Dave Police, presi- dent; Karen Zuercher and Kim Wagner, vice-presidents; Sharon Darlington, secre- tary; and Nancy Wolf, treasurer. The members of the New Haven Honor Society do not receive anything special, but the sense of accomplishment when asked to stand at commencement with that symbolic gold cord on is well worth the time and effort that it took to achieve this honor.

Here King John Hans, and Queen Wendy Raver take time out to pose for a picture. The 1982-83 school year brought many changes. One of these changes was that there was no Sweet Heart Dance. Instead the idea of a Snow Ball Dance was brought about and put into action in January. The reason for canceling the Sweet Heart Dance was that there were no days in February to hold it. Some thought that a change of name would attract more peo- ple. It was because of this thought that a new name was given and it was moved to a month earlier. The Snowball Dance added a new con- cept; it used Unique Lighting and Sound as opposed to a D.J. Each of the couples that attended had their names on a pair of paper mittens which stuck to the wall. There was snow flakes which also added a touch of winter to the scene. The dance, which was sponsored by student council, featured fast and slow dance. This year, however, there was no square dancing like in the years past at the Sweet Heart Dance. The king and queen were chosen by those who attended the event. The queen selected was Wendy Raver and the king was John Hans. Although some students were disap- pointed with the fact that there was no Sweetheart dance, many were happy with the results of the Snowball Dance. " It was successful, " said senior student council member Gayle Eytcheson. After it was all over most were pleased with the results. So now all we have to think about is if there will be another. 60 — Seniors Seniors (Kage-May) PoUl Koa«-P«p Club 9. Wreilki Robert Kagc Msrlorle Keller Samuel King-Sludenl Council 9, 10.

We will miss Larry, not only because of his athletic involvements as co-cap- tain of the volleyball team and as pitch- er on the baseball team, but as a friend to all he met. Many drab mornings were bright- ened with Larry ' s wit and smile. Losing him is a tragedy, but at the same time, an inspiration for those of us who re- member him for the person he was and the meaning of what life can be. LARY INVOLVED himself with sports and other activities. He was often found video taping at home basketball games. Here he displays that pleasant demeanor we were so accustomed to seeing.

X W It might be called " The end " It happens to everyone at one time; even the best of students are affected. It comes on around the middle of a person ' s senior year. This condition is known to all students, dreaded by all teachers, and hated by parents. It is what happens when a student realizes he only has one semes- ter left in high school. The symptoms are a lack of finishing one ' s homework, a strong urge to yell. rather than talk, in the halls, a desire to " blow-off " a class or two, and an all-around laid back attitude about everything. There is no cure for this condition and it is doubtful that one will ever be invented be- cause the majority of seniors seem to enjoy this most unavoidable condition. Like it or not, " senioritis " is just another part of being a senior. Holly Tu«Ii»on — JCL «i. 10. 11. 12. Pep Club U. 12. Science Club 11, Tracy Tutwilet — Drama 9. 10. 11. 12.

She partici- pated in many extra-curricular activities such as speech team, tennis and the play " Our Town, " Ulla Keranen found her home with the ULLA AND Sain King are having a serious conver- sation about their Government assignment. Weisenburger family. Ulla summed up by saying, " I have really enjoyed my stay here in the U.S. A, I learned how to work things out by myself and get along with very friendly Americans. " Keranen also added. " I will miss every- one, but hope to see everyone again some- day, I also wish everyone the best of luck for your future, what ever you end up doing, " which seemed to be the thoughts of both girls. WIVEKA SPENDS more time goofing around rather than listening to the teacher. WIVEKA BERGSTROM and Ulla Keranen show their friendship by giving each other bunny ears. Don WoodniH - Track 9.

Campus Llle 11, 12 Juniors (Akins-Garrison) Preparing for Prom a Major Task for Juniors Towards the end of the school year there is something which almost every junior looks forward to. This of course is the prom. In order to make the prom successful many committees are formed. These committees, which are made up of juniors volunteering their time, work in every aspect to see that the prom is successful. Most don ' t realize how much work goes into preparing for the prom, but believe it or not there is quite a bit of confusion. Since the beginning of January, when the committees were first formed, students had been busily working to find the perfect colors, decora- tions, and to pick out the theme which was to be used. When deciding on which decorations, invi- tations and theme to follow " There are a lot of committee meetings and a lot of magazines to look through, " commented junior Debbie Baleda, who was chairman of the decoration committee and treasurer of the Junior Class. Junior Lori Fedele who volunteered her time to help with the prom said this about how they came about choosing the decora- tions and invitations. " We looked at the stuff from last year and that gave us ideas for this year. " Some of the things such as the place to hold the prom and the band were selected in the beginning of the year. The theme, which was " Just You and I " was selected by the Junior class in early January. When asked why she wanted to be on a committee Debbie Baleda said, " I wanted to be an active part in the pre prom prepara- tion. " Whatever the reason may be for getting on a committee the juniors every year seem to get it done. Even though they might come across a few problems now and then they still always manage to see that we do have a prom. And so the " tradition " is passed on to the next class of juniors who will have to go through the whole bit of selling magazines and organizing the prom, but in the end most always find out that it was worth all of the work. WHEN IT comes to pre prom preparation these juniors volunteered their time to attend one of the committee meetings.

When school started in Sep- tember, the tuxedo look was in, but as the school year comes to a close, short skirts and mini skirts are often seen in the halls of New Haven High School. Spring and summer will bring the layered look. Polo T-shirts will be seen under almost everything. Bandannas are no longer used just around the head like a sweatband, they are tied in front like " Howdy Doody " or tied in a knot in front. The 50 ' s look is back! The short tight Mari- lyn jeans along with bold stripes, polka-dots and geometric designs created with bright colors will dazzle many eyes. While girls fashions change each season, guys tend to stick with the same type of clothes — the most popular being jeans and a polo T-shirt or a college jersey. Some of our New Haven men are more into the fashion scene and when asked about the new spring and summer looks, " OP " (Ocean Pacific) was number one on the list. School is a common place to see many different fashions formed from individual tastes. Everyone likes something different and New Haven students are no exception. BANDANNAS were worn about ev- ery way this year as Laurie Cook demonstrates. THE TUXEDO LOOK is modeled by teacher Ms. Rippetoe. 70 — Juniors WEARING THE POPULAR Ocean Pacific shirt is senior Tom Losher.

The league, organized by Mr. Johnson, consisted of eight teams: The Beavers, Badgers, Bucks, Bul- lets, Ciscos, Executioners, Aardvarks, and the Abalonies, a team made up of all teach- ers. Each team played the others once during regular season play and the team with the most wins was declared the season champi- on. Although all the teams had a respectable season, this year ' s champions were the Aba- lonies with a perfect 8 and record. The games were to be played every Tues- day night, but due to complications IBL was cancelled for three consecutive weeks. This angered many of the players and one team decided to rebel by posting " Beavers Have Rights Too " signs throughout the school. The Beavers also attempted to get more people interested in IBL by publishing weekly " Bea- ver Reports " and distributing them. Post sea- son play began in early March and consisted of a double elimination tournament. The Abalonies were not eligible since they were the season champions. The Beavers defeated the Bucks, 66-44, in the final game and the winners all received a trophy. The intramural basketball league provided something to do for athletes not participating in a winter sport or anyone else looking for a little exercise. The league was also enjoyable for most who played like senior. Executioner Jay Springer who said, " 1 felt the IBL was something which many of the players, includ- ing myself, looked forward to. 1 also feel it ' s a great way to get together with your friends, as well as teachers, to have a good time.

Yarian PETS ARE POPULAR with many New Haven stu- dents. This cat is being fed by its owner, senior Jennifer Mann. WATCHING TELEVISION with her poodle is ju- nior Sue Eytcheson. People have pets Even with all the people at school, some- times it seems like your only friend is your dog or cat. They listen to your problems with- out interrupting, they always seem to under- stand and agree with you, but most of all, they are your best friend. Individual preferences for pets vary from person to person with most preferring the traditional cat or dog. Others, who like to stress their individuality may opt for the less common tropical fish, guineau pigs, or ger- bils. No matter what the choice of pets may be, the pet gives its owner a non-complaining attentive outlet. Along with friendship and acceptance, the pet requires responsibility. Feeding, clean- ing, and caring for it require time and dedica- tion on the part of its owner. This mutual responsibility can be a very valuable learning experience for the owner.

What do you do with all that extra time? All of a sudden, there ' s no more school, no more books, no more teachers ' dirty looks! Now what do you do? Well, some teenagers spend their time as candy stripers in different area hospitals. This isn ' t a paying job; it ' s only volunteer, but the reward is great — de- voting your spare time to helping people, getting to know them, spreading a little sun- shine into someone ' s life. The job of candy striper is a variety of things: passing fresh ice water out to the pa- tients, sitting down and talking with them for a few minutes each day, helping them to en- joy their stay in the hospital a little bit more. A candy striper also serves meals to the pa- tients, occasionally feeding those who can ' t feed themselves, and taking patients to dif- ferent places. A candy striper can be so meaningful and helpful to all those who are helped by them. A candy striper can lift the spirits of a de- pressed person. A candy striper is all this and so much more! Truly, the job of a candy striping is a re- warding one! X FRESHMAN Juiie Let- SOPHOMORE Judy fel is one of many vol- Landess assists with unteers at Parkview. I.V. bottle while on duty.

Among this group of people some happen to have one thing in particular in common — the fact that they belong to the same family; they are of course brother and sister. There are many brother and sister duos at New Haven High School this year. Whether they are in the same grade or different grades there can still be a close bond between them unlike any other bond there is. Arguments, teasing, and jokes can all be advantages as well as disadvantages to having a brother or sister at this school. Some look at it as merely a ride to school while others see it as always having a friend near when you need them. When a brother or sister is the same age or close to the same age it tends to be more helpful because you, in this case, tend to share the same classes which can be beneficial to improving study habits. But when you are a younger brother or sister there tends to be a common problem involved. If you are the younger at a school where an older brother or sister has attended, their popularity or actions often reflect back on you. " Are you Suzie Jones ' sister? " is a phrase commonly heard by a sister or brother whose family member was somewhat popular the year before. Then again you may be treated differently because your brother or sister acted a certain way, they expect the same actions from you which can be a major disadvantage. Having a brother or sister at the same school as you attend can be good and bad; it all depends on how you go about handling the situation — with a friendly attitude or a negative one.

Among the many is Speech or Debate, whichever you choose. In both of these classes, the participants are required to get up and speak numberous times ' throughout the year. In Debate it is not quite so frightening because there will be another person up there talking which re- lieves a little of the pressure. In Speec h, however, the people aren ' t quite so lucky. They have to stand up in front of 20-30 people all alone and talk for five minutes or more. It can be a pretty frightening experience, but by the end of the semes- ter, people come out better equipped and able to handle the world of business. Among the many speeches that have to be given, one is a T.V. speech. The stu- dent has to take a famous person, living or dead, and study his life. He has to dress up like that person, and give a speech about him as if that person were actually there. He has to tell about his life beginning with childhood including when and where he was born, where he grew up, where he went to school, number of brothers and sisters, etc. They had to go into their grow- ing up years, and then finally int o their careers and the highlights of them. The speech had to last from 5-8 min- utes, and the person was actually taped by a T.V. camera and put on tape which was later showed on T.V. Speech, as frightening as it may be, car- ries with it much responsibility and hard work, but in the end, it proves quite fruit- ful. STEVE WISSMAN is seen here giving his mi- crophone speech.

Students find lunch period a good time to let out built up energy and update themselves on the latest gossip. Besides the fact that it is a break in the monotony of the day, it satisfies those embarassing growls of hunger suffered during those hours preced- ing lunch. Although some students complain, they know that they could not get a better meal for the price. The cafeteria women strive to keep the lunches well balanced and yet still appe- tizing. This year the cafeteria offers an alter- native to the standard lunch or hostess; they have installed an open salad bar where stu- dents can create their own lunch. The salad bar is the same price as a standard lunch, which is eighty cents. Through the many choices that our cafeteria offers students can usually find something that appeals to them. 82 — Sophomores Shelly Watkins Todd Walters Kevin Webb John Weisenburger Steve Wissman Carl Wetosky CREATING HER own salad makes sophomore SELECTING THE vegetable that sounds most appealing is sophon Danielle Kirkpatrick ' s lunch more interesting. dents behind him discuss the daily school news.

Teenagers sixteen and over have the opportunity to try to find jobs to earn extra money. Unfortunately the younger kids who are not yet sixteen and cannot work may find it even harder to earn a few extra dollars. For these teenagers babysitting has be- come a popular source of income. It offers an opportunity for younger teens to earn extra money. Almost anyone can be a babysitter as no certain age limit is required, although much responsibility is. One must be very pa- tient, especially when babysitting for younger children and infants. Part of the responsibil- ities include: making dinner, giving baths, and keeping the children occupied. Some people may have frightening exper- Rodney Anderson Sonya Anderson Robert Anweiler Cissy Arnold Doug Arnold Rod Arnold Cindy Aschliman Alan Ashbaugh Michelle Ausdran Annette Avila Todd Babcock Steve Bair Misty Baker Todd Baker James Ball Greg Balogh John Banet Ricci Barber Beth Bartholomew Patrick Baumgartner Julie Beard Elizabeth Behrendt Shawna Benson Catherine Bingham Ryan Bleeke Leo Bletzacker Chad Blumenherst Tom Bosse Jackie Bosserman Loren Bowers Steven Bowers Lisa Boyles iences happen to them while babysitting. Prank phone calls, or friends knocking on windows can sometimes make the job very nerve- racking. When unknown people start bothering a sitter this job can become very terrifying. " I was never so scared in all my life " , replied Tammie Harper, " when Heather Dennis and I were babysitting and someone tried to get in! " Although most babysitters are very cau- tious accidents may occur such as: the children getting hurt by animals or hot ovens. Sitting does have its ups and downs like having to go and watch some bratty kids while others are out having a good time. In the long run one will feel very rewarded to have had the opportunity to take care of the younger generation. 84 Freshmen James Cable Sonya Campos Robert Carpenter Todd Chaney Darrin Chapman Michael Cheever Michelle Chcevcr Randy Chin Deon Clark Patty Collins Melissa Conley Jackson Cooper Chris Cox Randy Cox Lori Dager Jay Darlington Freshraen 85 Freshmen (Davis — Lampe) Tinsel teeth are tolerated by many for brighter smiles Maity Davis Jeff Dellinger Angel Dennis Heather Dennis Brian Dickinson Kelly Dickinson John Dicks Barry Drew Dave Drew Dawn Duffey Steve Durm Angle Dutt Michelle Ertel Daine Evans David Feber Ellen Felten W i V As we have all probably noticed many people have braces or in other words tin- sel teeth. Those people who do not, obvi- ously do not know the pain that those who have them experience. Wire tightening is one of the more prominent ones. Pain also comes from the careless assistant who picks at the gums of the mouth instead of the cement that holds the braces. The pain does not stop there; it hurts when they are removed, too. The orthodontist gives his patients wax to try to lessen the pain. It hardly helps though; it cither slips below the braces or it ends up being swal- lowed. Eating with wax in is not easy ei- ther. Then there is all that food that can ' t be eaten such as — caramels, gum, popcorn and many other favorites. Most people go ahead and eat them anyway. They then suffer through the orthodontists speech on the responsibilities as a patient. While we are on the subject of food, it is not very appealing to see someone walking around with a piece of chicken in his front braces is it? There are some advantages to this truly unique experience. Through it all one must think how straight the teeth will be when the braces are removed. 86 Freshmen Teresa Fisher Lora Fletcher Margaret Fraser Alicia Fryback Jana Gallmeyer Jon Garvin Chris Geldien Doug Geller Kim Gerig Jeff Gerke Bonnie Gibson Jill Gibson Shane Gitlenwater Tracy Gillenwater Doug Gilreath John Girardot Adam Graham Chad Graham Sonya Gratz Chris Griffin Diana Gustin Neat Gustin Heidy Hamm Randy Hamman Jerry Hammond Karrol Hammond Jill Hanefeld Judy Hanni Luke Hardesty Tammie Harper Lisa Harris Tim Hartwig David Haslup Phyllis Hecht David Heintzelman Diana Henry Shcrri Herrell Toni Higginbotham Carol Hildebrand Kirsten Holle Heath Hostetler Mark Howe Angi Huber Evelyn Hunter Barb Irick Dave Jones Teral Jones Teresa Jones Beth Kaufman Debbie Keller Jason Keller Jerry Kelty David Kern Rick King Kathy Kitzmiller Karl Kline Paul Knoblauch Larry Kreigh Kelli Krieger Chris Kurek Lisa Lacey Rhonda Ladd Natalie Lampe Freshmen (Lamphiear-Roese) Foreign languages provide cultural alternatives LISTENING INTENTLY freshman Kelly Dickin- son learns culture and language of Paris and oth- Sharon Lamphiear Cindy Lauber Tim Lawson Julie Leffel Doug Leonard Christy Levy Tish Liddell Scott Lininger Jon Lockard Karrie Locke Kathy Lombard Mike Lomont Kathy Long Michelle Love Astor Lowe Vanessa Maiden Julie Marhover Tina Marks Robert Martelles Ambia Martin Sean McArdle Jeff McCleery Darrin McDowell Dawn McKale Debbie McNary Renee McQueen Leslie Meaux Carla Meek Richie Metzler Ryan Meyer Lisa Momper Joe Mowery Pat Murphy Tony Meyers Lynn Nicoletti Mike Nix Kerrie Nusbaum Kim Odem Curt Onion Kirk Orr Tammy Ortncr Mila Osbun Dan Patterson Linda Patty Matt Pranger Matt Plummer Theresa Plummer Matt Reed Denise Reedy Jeff Reinig Scott Renier Laura Rhoades Jay Rhodes April Rice Katrina Richards Leah Roese 88 — Freshmen As their eighth grade year comes to an end the soon to be freshmen sign up for their classes. As freshmen they are offered a choice of four foreign languages: French, German, Spanish and Latin. Foreign lan- guage at New Haven High School is an elec- tive taken by mainly freshmen. Few go on to complete four years. However, four years of a foreign language is a great asset to have on your high school record. French and Spanish are known nation wide to be the two most popular foreign languages. Mr. Tod Wright, the head of the language department, teach- es Latin for New Haven High School. Miss Mary Jo Purvis, teaches French, Mr. Guenther Rohrmoser teaches German and Mrs. Doris Mann is our Spanish teacher. Each has his or her own way of teaching culture and language. The foreign language department often of- fers a group trip to visit the country they are studying over the summer. Escorted by their teacher or guardians, students learn many things that could never be taught in a class- room. Foreign languages are very valuable to any student by helping them to understand the world better. STUDYING IS a must for freshmen Robert Mar- telles and Matt Reed, as they hit the books during German class.

It is very hard competing against an upperclassman; successful compe- tition is an accomplishment few attain, but many desire. This year the gymnastics squad ended their season with a record of 7 wins — 7 losses. We had some excellent freshmen on the squad three of whom are Angle Huber, Barb Irick, and Sarah Roller. Even though all the freshmen were really good, these three got chosen as outstanding freshmen. Angie Huber has been taking lessons for about five years, but her freshman year was her first year in competitions — Angie really likes the competition. She said, " It ' s neat to watch the other team ' s routines and tricks; gymnastics is hard work, but it is also fun; you can always try new things. " Angie also add- ed, " I was nervous my first performance but when I got out there I was too busy concen- trating on my routine to be nervous. " After working out and performing all season Angie thinks its great to finally get them. Barb Irick is another outstanding fresh- man. She has been in gymnastics since she was in nursery school, but this was her first year in competition. Barb loves the competi- tion because it makes her work harder, along with developing concentration. She was very nervous her first competition. Barb hopes to be in gymnastics for the rest of her life. She said, " It keeps me in shape. " For Sarah she has been in gymnastics for about six and a half years. She had not com- peted for about two years before this year. Sarah has almost the opposite feeling of An- gie and Barb. She dislikes the competition because it puts too much pressure on her and her teammates. Sarah said, " There ' s lots of hard work involved because you have to keep improving and adding stuff. " Sarah was very nervous for her first performance, since she had not competed for a long time and did not like performing in front of people she knew. Sarah is planning on doing gymnastics for the next three years and would like to receive a scholarship. Pat Baumgartner started out the football season playing as a freshmen, but little did he know he would finish out the season playing varsity football. It all happened when the var- sity team lost their quarterback Tim Hoffer. They also went through Mark Miquelon and Todd Clark. They were in need of a quarter- back so the coaches looked on and discov- ered Pat. They brought him up to varsity in the Bellmont game; Pat held down the posi- tion as the team finished with a record of 8-2. We all could say Pat is one outstanding fresh- man. Not many freshmen try out for a play and get a leading role as Diana Henry did in " Our Town. " Diana likes to act. She has been act- ing since she was little, from doing commer- cials for her mom and dad to skits for school and now leading roles. Diana enjoys being with people; she is very outgoing. Diana w as nervous for her first performance, " Tea House. " Her role was that of an old woman ' s daughter. In " Our Town " she played Emily. Diana is currently taking acting lessons at the civic theatre to better her career. Heath Hostetler started wrestling when he was four. He went to practices with his father in order to learn and watch. Heath ' s first tournament was when he was six years old at New Castle, Indiana, in 1974. Since then he has been in 13 tournaments not including high school. Heath wrestled varsity this year and he very rarely met up against another freshman. " The hardest part for a freshman wrestling varsity is that they are not as phys- ically or mentally mature as their upper class- men opponents, " quoted Heath. Heath has certainly proven himself to be another fantas- tic freshman. ANGIE HUBER was on the gymnastics team this year; they had a record of 7-7. PAT BAUMGARTNER played quarterback for varsity this season and led them to state play- offs. FRESHMAN DIANA HENRY played the leading role in " Our Town " playing the part of Emily. HEATH HOSTETLER wrestled varsity this year in the 112 pound class. Freshmen 91 Teachers (Bandt-Ruby) • Bandt, Prmcipal ' s SL ' cr tary, Bookke p LuAnn Beaman. Librari John Becker. Psych..

BLOMBACH looks down to see what the topic of the days discus- sion is going to be as Student Coun- cil members meet. Lecturer One out of every one thousand high school graduates becomes a physics teacher. Mr. Michael O. Blombach is one of these minor- ities. Blombach started his teaching career teaching eighth grade General Science. He got his license for teaching physics after the previous physics teacher quit. He now teach- es physics, chemistry, and general science. He also teaches a computer class to the other teachers in this school. Blombach is a gra- duate of Bishop Luers High School, and re- ceived his teaching degree at Indiana Univer- sity. " The goal for all my classes is to have my students appreciate the sciences, " he com- mented. Along with teaching the sciences, Blom- bach also teaches flying. He ' s been flying since 1966 and has had quite a few planes since then. Teaching and flying aren ' t his only assets, Blombach also is a lecturer. In October, he ectured on how to teach Einsteins ' Theory of Relativity to high school students. In April he went to Dallas, Texas, to give the same lec- ture to a larger group of science teachers. When asked about Mr. Blombach, Dave Police replied, " He ' s kind of long winded but he gets his point across. " Don Huml. Blu 1 2. Life Scitnco li2 Jerrv Uch, Mecli, Drawing 14. Wood 3 4.

Mrs. White is seen laughing at a his busy schedule to pose for the photographer, joke told by a studant. 94 — Teachers MRS. JONASON looks down at her plan book to see what ' s on the agenda for the day. Among the many old faces in this school, there are three new ones. They are faces of Don Conkle, Ann White, and Patty Dehr Jon- ason, Mr. Conkle is the new guidance counselor that took Mr. Oberlin ' s place. He has lived in Fort Wayne all his life until he went to col- lege. He went to Huntington for undergrad- uate school, then received his master ' s de- gree at St. Francis, and he got his counseling degree at I.U. He graduated from Northside High School, and has been teaching for 14 years. This is his first position as a counselor. Before coming here, he taught the third grade at Woodburn Elementary, where he also coached freshman girls basketball at Woodlan. Another new face, although familiar to those who had her at NHJH, is Patty Dehr Jonason. She was born and raised in the Chicago area until she was eight years old. She then moved to Fort Wayne when she was nine and stayed here until she was eleven, and then from the ages of 12 to 18, she lived in Robin- son, III. She ' s lived in Indiana ever since she graduated from college in 1977. She graduated from Illinois State Universi- ty in Bloomington, 111. She became a teacher because she liked kids. This is her fourth year of teaching. She was at NHJH for three years, and this is her first year here. She was married to Bob Jonason on April 9, 1983. Last, but certainly not least, is Ann White. She teaches General Math, and 9th and 10th Basic Grammer. Mrs. White is originally from Midland, Michigan, where she was born and raised. She then lived in Australia for four years, where she graduated from high school. She came back and went to Aquinas Col- lege in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and then received her Master ' s degree at Western Michigan in Kalamazoo. Before coming to teach at New Haven, she taught at Battle Creek Jr. High. She taught just about everything, but especially English, Math, and Reading. She was a teacher there for 7 years. Outside of school, Mrs. White loves to ski, golf, cook, do crafts, and read. She is also interested in Computer Science and is pres- ently taking classes at I.U. Purdue at Fort Wayne. All-Star Coach The Indiana Football Coaches Association each year sponsors a high school all-star game which is played in Indianapolis. The players that are selected are excep- tional. They chose 34 players out of all the Northern Indiana High School. Mr. Kirkton, our coach here at New Haven High School, was selected to be one of the coaches. He will be coaching the defensive line. Coaches from each district select one man to help coach; our district has 38 high schools. Coaches in each area select the coach that will represent them. It is an ex- treme honor. Being selected is probably the highest honor that a high school coach can be awarded. The coaches are chosen as to who could do the best job, and not by popularity. The team gets ten days of practice. There are five coaches for the north team and they all work together with the team to get them ready for the big game. " A haven all its own 5?

Buoyed by champion- ships in football and boys ' basketball, the Bulldogs made a serious run for the school ' s first all-sports award. Un- fortunately this was not the year for the all-sports award, but it was an outstanding year for New Haven ath- letics. In the fall, the football team won its third straight conference football championship and gained a play-off berth for the third year. What looked to be an even better year was lost along with three quarterbacks who were lost with broken bones in an amazing turn of events. But the team showing its grit by emphasizing de- fense, responded by finishing the reg- ular season 8-2. The basketball team also played well in the conference by ending its season 8-0 in conference and 16-6 over-all. The team was lead by twin- trees Tom Byrd and Joey Graham, but proved to be well-balanced in their attack both offensively and de- fensively. Great athletic years are bound to- gether by championship teams, but great years must also include other good performances. This year was no exception. 1982-83 brought about improved performances from boy ' s tennis and cross-country and girls bas- ketball. The boy ' s and girl ' s track teams continued to do well by finish- ing second and third respectively. Girls volleyball was competitive with the best in the area. Tim Laurent fin- ished fifth in the state wrestling meet. New Haven was considered a ha- ven for outstanding athletes men- tioned in the following pages. Much emotion was felt in football and the Senior Dennie Mitchel struggles against an closeness of the players was strong. This opponent from Snyder.

The ' Dogs were ranked eighth in the pre- season polls and were picked to be co-confer- ence titlists. The Bulldogs started off the sea- son with 6 straight victories. However, a plague of injuries finally caught up to the Bulldogs as they were set back the following two weeks, with losses to rivals Harding and Homestead. The Bulldogs bounced back to finish out the regular season with victories over South Adams and DeKalb to gain their third straight play-off bid. The Bulldogs fin- ished their season with a record of 8 wins, 3 losses. The first obstacle the Bulldogs faced was the Angola Hornets, pre-season favorites to win the N.E.I.A.C. title. The ' Dogs proved the better with a 17-12 win. A capacity crowd filled the stadium as the two state-ranked powers. New Haven and the Woodlan Warriors, clashed in the annual Homecoming game. The Bulldogs used Mark Miquelon as their quarterback due to the in- jury of Tim Hoffer. Despite the substitution, the team went on to beat the Warriors. Mi- quelon was lost for the season, unfortunately. " Beating Woodlan was the highlight of the season, " said senior Mark Miquelon. " I ' m glad I contributed to the victory, " said senior Kerry Burke. After the Bulldogs defeat of Woodlan, they traveled to Bellmont with Todd Clark making a short-lived appearance as quarterback. A broken wrist during the fourth play for Clark brought on the need for the fourth quarter- back, freshman Pat Baumgartner. GETTING BACK to the huddle, Ted Wood (24), John Brant (76), and Dennis Mitchel (79) recover after an offensive play against the Woodlan War- riors. KEEPING HIS EYES OPEN for a possible player to receive his pass is Tim Hoffer (10). The Bull- dogs went on to beat the Angola Hornets with a score of 17-12. 98 — Varsity Football THE WRAPPING of Todd Clark ' s ankle by Mr. Pat Monaghan will help prevent a pobsibility of injury during play.

The game was crucial for the team as any hope of a play-off berth and a third unprecedented conference title was on the line. The Bulldogs won, 23-6, and were guaranteed a play-off position. Jim Kirkton, coach, commented, " It was the best game we ' ve played all year. " The Bulldogs had had another awesome performance. Offensively the ' Dogs put to- gether over 200 yards while the defense col- lected 6 pass interceptions. In sectional football action, it was the Bull- dogs against the Peru Tigers. New Haven took the opening kick and marched right through the Tiger defense to lead at the half. Ted Wood had gained over 100 yards rush- ing and the defense did not allow more than 100 yards total offense. Unfortunately for New Haven the game of football has two halves. Peru came out of the locker room a totally different team. The Bulldog offense was non-existent the second half, as they could only manage a meager 20 yards offense. Peru ' s offense dominated just as well as their defense with a series of sweeps and dump passes. Peru scored twice in the second half to take the lead and the victory away from the Bulldogs. " We were lucky to get into the play-offs. I wish we could have done better, but it ' s nice to have played the game, " said senior Kirk Salerno. The co-captains of this year ' s team were Todd Clark and Ted Wood. Awards were given to Rod Fry for Most Valuable Lineman, Ted Wood for Most Valuable Back, Dave Shaw and Pat Baumgartener for Most Im- proved, Mike Salvhus for Best Mental Atti- tude and Greg Jackson received the Helmet Award. tEFENSlVE BACK Jeff Fitzgerald played both of- znsively and defensively for the Bulldogs.

HEAD COACH Jim Kirkton shows concern as the Bulldogs work their way to their third straight play-off appearance under his leader- ship. Football 101 JV and Freshmen football players lay foundation for the future The 1982 Junior Varsity football team fin- ished out their season with a record of 4-4. The J.V. played very well some games especially later in the year, such as the Har- ding game. However they did lose several games which might have been victories. Several players improved during the sea- son. Mr. Nietert noted, " Scott Eckelbarger improved both offensively and defensively. Jeff Holcomb really helped after he switched to the line. " In the beginning of the season, the defense did a very good job in helping to win games. Toward the end, the offense really started to come together. They heavily relied on their passing attack guided by Eckelbarger. The J.V. team had a successful year. The purpose of J.V. is to improve the players NH JV FOOTBALL OPP 3 DeKalb 9 Carroll 6 Huntington 7 Bellmont 20 7 Woodlan 13 3 Homestead 21 34 Harding 6 17 Columbia City Record 4-4 6 NH FRESHMEN OPP 21 Garrett 8 21 Homestead 8 27 Angola 26 Woodlan 6 13 Concordia 12 13 Harding 15 21 Carroll Record 5-2 8 skills for the varsity team.

The Freshman football team finished out their season with a record of 5 wins and 2 losses. The first game of the season was very important for the Freshmen team, for they were just starting out their season and wins were needed. The Freshmen team won their first four games; some major adjustments were required. Pat Baumgartner was moved to varsity level to fill in their quarterback positions. Pat held down 3 key positions fo the Freshmen, starting quarterback, fre safety and punter. The team then had to scramble to fill thes i positions for the remaining 3 games.

" It was a great year; they all were great, " stated Coach Dennis Johnson. When examining statistics, Senior Wendy Raver was awarded the most assists with 105, and the award for best mental attitude. The best server was junior Sara Lopshire with 188 196-95%. Kim Steiner was noted as best attacker with 241 286, and 93 kills. Selected as all conference players for the 1982 season were Beth Brockmann and Cap- tain Wendy Raver, for first team, and Kim Steiner for the second team. Having team spirit was no problem this year was thanks to Captain Cathy Deme- triades, awarded the most spirited for the 1982 season. This year ' s team was exceptionally good when it came to winning, having two wins in the Harding Tournament against Bellmont and Concordia. Later in the season they were defeated by Concordia, but they came back to beat them in the third battle between these First row — Renee Gremaux. Jodi Boyden, Kii Rhodes, Patti Sharp, Diana Henry.

Then in sectionals they defeated Heri- tage with a 15-12, 14-16, 15-7 score. Skill as well as improvements were two things to be cited among this years team. Junior Sara Lopshire was voted most valu- able player, and Senior Judy Yagodinski as the team ' s most improved. Being able to maintain a good academic record as well as being able to participate in sports is often very important to a player. Junior Sara Lopshire was able to maintain five A ' s and 1 B throughout the volleyball season. She was awarded the scholars award at the volleyball banquet. This is considered an outstanding accomplishment within itself. The junior varsity team was able to follow in the steps of the varsity team in maintaining an overall record of 8-4. The team started off the season with four wins in a row against. Snider, Wayne, Bishop Luers, and Northrop. In the area of serving and spiking Shelly Gil- lenwater maintained a 77% serving with 49- 64, and in spiking she also did well. Renee Gremaux also did well in the area of serving with 38 42, which gave her a 90%. « 101 e» n A ? I uui : First row — Babs Mctiger. Khslen Smith. Jill St. Peters. LcAnn Talinan. Sara Lopshire.

Roadivork and routine build distance teams The 1982-83 version of New Haven Cross Country reminded our NEIAC foes that the " BULLDOGS " are alive and well! After a ninth place NEIAC finish last year, this year ' s team placed third in the Conference Meet — four points away from runner-up Angola and behind state- ranked Dekalb. Many miles of summer in- dividualized running, several week-end road races, routine morning and afternoon practices, and a motto of " you can ... if you think you can " resulted in a winning dual-meet record as well as the runner-up trophy in the annual Heritage Condition- er. While this year ' s team did not have the one " outstanding " runner, the team con- cept of pack running (as seen on this page as seven BULLDOGS lead Woodlan through the woods at Kline ' s Field) made them very competitive in nearly every contest. The conference and Sectional Team consisted of captains Tim Laurent, 12, and Chris Neher, 11, Most Valuable Run- ner Award winner Jeff Murphy, 10, Men- tal Attitude Award Winner Brian Zuercher, 12, Bret VanTilburg, 11, Dave Nolt, 10, and Scott Linninger, 9.

This was the first year for the girls ' cross country team at New Haven. " It was mostly a learning experience, " said Coach Jeff Johnson. Coach Johnson is a math teacher at the junior high. " I hope that we have a better turn out next year, " he said. " I think we have a lot of potential. " There were eleven runners on the team this year with eight underclassmen. Many new records were set this year Kathy White, ran the best time in the Ad ams Central Invitational, and she also re ceived the " Best Mental Attitude " award Dana Biteman received the " Most Valu able Runner " award and is also the 1983 senior captain.

The team started off their campaign with a strong showing against cross-town rival, Harding. The ' Dogs then blew away conference foe, DeKalb, by 20 points. A loss to Concordia gave the Bulldogs their first taste of defeat. Three straight victo- ries over Heritage, Angola and Bluffton gave the Bulldogs an impressive 5-1 start. The Summit Athletic Conference teams proved to be the Bulldogs downfall as South Side and North Side both defeated the Bull- dogs in hard fought games. The Bulldogs were the pre-season favorite to win the North Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference but when the Bulldogs ventured into the annual tournament a few things went wrong. The first game pitted the ' Dogs against the Bluffton Tigers. The team defeat- ed Bluffton and then went on to face Home- stead. The Spartans were a little too much for the Bulldogs that night as they got by New Haven with an 11 point victory, thus dimin- ishing all hopes for a Bulldog tournament vic- tory. The Bulldogs bounced back with a streak of four games without any losses. One of the victories was against Homestead, avenging the earlier loss. A loss to Woodlan and four more victories including East Noble, Colum- bia City, Caston and Snider on a last second shot by Tim Hoffer gave the Bulldogs the conference championship and a regular sea- son record of 15 wins and 5 losses. The Bulldogs became an outside hope to break the grip that the Fort Wayne schools seemed to hold over the sectionals. The Bull- dogs drew Bishop Luers for their first round game. New Haven had little trouble with the Knights as they came away with a 15 point victory. Joe Graham led the way as he made 30 points for the team. The victory put the Bulldogs into the semi-final game against the Northrop Bruins. This time the Bulldogs did not fare as well. New Haven took a nine point lead into the halftime, but cold shooting on their part in the second half seemed to take its toll. Northrop caught up and eventually built a commanding lead. The Bulldogs battled back, but could get no closer than five points. This had been the third year in a row that the Bulldogs were knocked out of state tourna- ment by the Bruins. Joey Graham and Tom Byrd, seniors, both received All-Conference first team honors, John Hans, Jr. was voted to the second team. Graham also was selected All-Area and made the All-Sectional teams.

Team work This season wasn ' t as successful as the J.V. team would liked it to have been. The determined team kept practicing and kept playing. The amount of fouls and turn- overs contributed to the loss of many of the games, although in most of the games New Haven led until the fourth quarter when the opposers made a comeback to win the game. Through superb ability to play together as a team, rather than indi- viduals, this season should prove as a great builder for next season. ANTICIPATING the basket.

IL T| Girls ' program makes strides REACHING FOR THE SKY was an asset for this ear ' s reserve team. The freshmen were an asset :o this years team. The Lady Bulldogs got off to a slow start at the beginning of the 1982-83 season. They were involved in several close games, but always seemed to end up on the short side. The Bulldogs struggled through the first half of the season, losing 7 of their 8 games. New Haven ended the first half of their season by defeating Bluffton just before Christmas break. The Lady Bulldogs used the time during the break to re-group, bouncing back and winning their first game of the new year. After a disappointing loss to Harding, the Bulldogs won their next four games. New Haven played very well in the NEIAC tourna- ment advancing to the final game. They were beaten by 1 1th ranked Bellmont who earned the title of conference champion. The Bull- dog team was proud to be 1983 NEIAC tour- nament runner-up. The Bulldogs closed out the remaining schedule by winning 3 out of 4 conference games. Senior leadership and total team play were the key to the Bulldog ' s success this season. Captains Cathy Demetriades and Mary Schrader provided the type of leader- ship and positive attitude this years team needed; these Seniors were also a part of this year ' s all-conference first and second teams consecutively. It was also a good year for this year ' s girls ' basketball reserve team. They finished with a 14-1 record, the best ever for a girls reserve team. This year ' s team consisted of 6 talent- ed sophomores and 8 promising freshmen. This years team won their first thirteen games of the season before losing to East Noble 32-26. They won their final game against South Adams. Sophomore leadership was the key this year. Girls ' bask; .(1 115 » Boi;s ' volleyball squad battles every step The boys ' volleyball team finished their season with a record of 3 wins, 6 losses. The team was coached by Mark Novak. This is coach Novak ' s first coaching year for NHHS. " I think it was a pretty respectable year; " I especially enjoyed working with the kids I taught in elementary school, " said Novak. The team will be graduating four seniors this year, John Hans, Larry Nielson, Tony Link- er, and Joe Graham. Joe Graham was voted to the all-confer- ence team. Larry Nielson was co-captain along with Joe. " 1 feel the season didn ' t go very good; it was disappointing; there was a lot of inexpe- rience, " Graham remarked. Rod Fritcha was quoted as saying " We had a good season but it hurt us when Joe got hurt. I don ' t think the season record showed how good we really were. " Mr. Novak concluded by saying, " There will be solid nucleus of good players back next year. " The J.V. finished off their season with a record of 1 win, 4 loses. Coach Novak said, " They were young but have a lot of potential for next year. " J.V. made it to the state tour- ney, but lost in their second match. " 1 enjoyed the season this year and also played a lot more, " remarked Russell Steiner. Jeff Hall said the following when asked about their season. " It was ok but we could have done better.

Many look at wres- tling as a chore because of the strict diets the wrestling team has to follow. But this year it appeared to be more of a pleasure because they did not let the losses out number the wins. The wrestling team this year had a total of six wins and eight losses, not including the semi- and state-finals. Tim Laurent proved to be definite asset to this year ' s team. Tim traveled to state and placed 5th. He was also one of the captains for the team. Tim achieved many honors and awards, among them are the award for Most Points Collected and the Most Points. He was also recognized as Wrestler of the Week a total of 13 times. Chris Neher was also a captain of this year ' s team and was Wresler of the Week ten times. Chris was also recognized as Hustler of the Year for the 1983 season, and was sec- tional champion and semi-state participant, along with Laurent. There were many others who were a great tribute to the team. Rob Snyder was recog- nized as this year ' s Most Improved Wrestler and was also Wrestler of the Week four times. Greg Peaks was also recognized sever- al times as wrestlers of the week. This year ' s season has its ups and downs, but the team maintained a good mental atti- tude and good physical shape, with a limited amount of injuries. Whether you win or lose its all a matter of how you go about proving your ability, in order to stand out among the rest. 2HRIS THOMPSON watches a match as Coach -lostetler gives him some advice. =R0NT ROW: Curt Onion, Chris Bandelier.

Youthful look highlights year The 1983 gymnastic season is one that could have been better. " I feel our overall team record could have been better with out the injuries several gymnasts had, " said head coach Roberta Bultemeier. But it could have been a great deal worse. The mainly young team ended its season with a 7 win and 7 loss record. " We had a lot of great performances this year. There are some outstanding gymnasts on this team and I ' m glad I was part of it. " stated senior cap- tain Kathy White. One of the highlights of the season was the Leo meet. The girls set an overall team score record of 93.45 against the Lions. New Haven ended up third at the NEIAC conference meet held in February. The gym- nasts then concluded their season by partici- pating in the Fort Wayne sectional meet. Kathy White finished second with 7.55 on the optional vault and Le Tatman brought home a blue ribbon on intermediate floor. Her score was an impressive 8.6. Both of these gym- nasts went on to compete in the regional meet at Northrop. After their season the gymnasts were hon- ored at their annual banquet. Several awards were given out. Included in them were: Best Mental Attitude — Le Tatman; Most Im- proved — Barb Hoar; Most Dedicated — An- gie Huber; Most Valuable — Sarah Roller; Most Points for the Season — Barb Irick; Most Career Points — Kathy White. The team this year consisted mostly of un- derclassmen and because of this they have much to look forward to.

The season was. how- ever, filled with many outstanding individ- ual performances as several school records fell. Leading this year ' s record-smashing group was sophomore Barb Hoar who set records in both the 100 and 200 at 12.45 and 25.9, respectively. Another sopho- more, Jenni Fultz cleared 5-0 in the high jump and freshman Sherri Herrell ' s 15.8 in the hurdles also surpassed the school records. Senior captain Kathy White ran the 400 in 63.0 to set a record in that event. The 400 relay team also got their names in the record book with a clocking of 50.8. Mem- bers of that team were Barb Hoar, Mi- chelle Grooms, both sophomores, and sen- iors Kathy White and Robin May. The major thrust of the season was aimed toward the conference meet. While the team finished a disappointing third, there were several outstanding perfor- mances. But an injury to Sherri Herrell, a bad hand-off, and some below average performances in certain events blocked the way to the crown. Highlights in the conference meet were the 1-2 finish by Barb Hoar and Michelle Grooms in the 100, followed by their 1-4 finish in the 200. The 400 relay team of Hoar, Grooms, White, and May tied the previous conference mark set by New Haven the year before. Jenni Fultz in the high jump and Jill Graft in the 800 both finished fourth while Ellen Cheviron finished fifth in the shot. Barb Hoar was able to advance past the sectional to the regional before being elimi- nated. This year ' s team was captained by seniors Kathy White and Wendy Raver. CONCENTRATING ON her form.

Girls ' track— 125 It was a season of " close calls. " Baseball is a sport signaling the coming of summer, although at New Haven, pitchers and catchers start practicing in February. Baseball requires much practice and dedica- tion which involves practicing before and after school. This year ' s season for the team was not one of the best, although it was a memorable one for many players. After looking forward to a good year, it really became a disappoint- ing one for all. Sophomore Terry Miller com- mented, " In most of our games if our pitching was good, our hitting was poor, and if our hitting was good, our pitching was poor. " While the Bulldogs lost several close games during the year, they did have some highlights to note. The ' Dogs displayed their potential in wins over state ranked South Ad- ams and Concordia. Both victories showed their potential when they had it " all togeth- er. " The season ended with a heart breaking loss to Wayne by one run. The Bulldogs had held the lead until the final inning, but just couldn ' t hang on. It typified a season of close calls and frustration, but also showed that the team was competitive with all. During sectional, Coach Huml also felt this way. " It was just one more hard loss in a disappointing season filled with bad breaks. " The varsity will be losing six seniors. The team will also be losing four main starters. Most Valuable Player was awarded to Kirk Salerno for his offensive achievement. The Most Improved Player was awarded to Mark Rydell.

The team still seemed to put forth their best efforts despite their defeats. Their victories came over Co- lumbia City, Bluffton, Homestead, Harding, and Bellmont. Freshmen were shining this year as Laura Rhodes and Leah Taylor played varsity for this year ' s team. Laura Rhodes finished with the year ' s best individual record. This year ' s captain, Ann Zurbuch, was rec- ognized as the most valuable player, and the player with the best mental attitude, which is always important in any sporting event. " Overall the conference was a lot tougher this year, " quoted Coach Connie Wharton. The team finished in Conference with a re- cord of 4-4. Their biggest and proudest victory this year was against Homestead where they managed to defeat them for the first time in years by a score of 3-2. Six out of seven varsity players graduated this year so next season will definitely be a season of re-build- ing. • ' ' " ■ ' " ' " !

To accommodate these goals, a broad selection of courses was neces- sary. For some the day was spent in the D- wing learning how to change a clutch pressure plate in Mr. Ritchie ' s class or welding a steel frame under the aus- pices of Mr. Stuckey. Artists also could be found in D-wing working on paint- ings and sculptures. The English hallway might have found students in the hall working on radio broadcasts for Mrs. Osborn or students worrying about their junior term paper assigned by Mrs. Holt. On the other side we ran into the foreign language domain headed by Wright, Rohrmoser, Purvis, and Mann. Most any day after school one could find their clubs or students filling the halls with greetings in the various lan- guages. Upstairs where the juniors and sen- iors roamed the long halls filled with history, government, science, business and math. It was a haven for last min- ute studying before Miss Leuenberger dropped another test on us or before Mr. Klopfenstein ' s lab. One of the more enjoyable classes is Sociolo- gy where we see circled, informal learning situations. Cleaning the stove is Cara Lenlngton and Renee Love. Academvcs — 135 TYPING is just one of the many business courses of- fered during the high school years. BUSINESS LAW finds Kir- sten Macgregor and class- mates working on their homework. bM 4 Getting down to business classes Before a student ' s four years in high school are com- pleted, he will probably have taken at least one business course, if not more. These classes turn out to be very important and useful in college, career opportunities and life. For example, typing is almost required in college and can be used to further a person ' s employment prospects; Business Law provides legal principles that apply to business, situations that all individuals have in everyday life; Consumer Eco- nomics gives a person the knowledge of costs and how to apply their money to get the most out of it. Some other examples cf business courses are Accounting, Office Practice, General Business, Shorthand, Notehand, Re- cordkeeping, Business Machines and Business English. " Accounting has taught me the basics and has already proven very helpful and I think everyone who has the chance should take some, " stated Denita Jordan. Although Business courses are not required for gradu- ation, and are generally not considered as difficult; they could prove to be very beneficial in one ' s future. " The thing that helped me most with my typing ability, was service working for Mr. Kirkton, because he treated me just like I was his real secretary, " commented Mari- anne Schaefer. 136 Getting down to lousiness A,5: ||fs; ACCURACY IN MATH is re- quired to make the grade for this accounting student.

Kristcn McArdle works with Terri Mettcrt. Home Economics, more than baking a calce Many students are taking Home Economics classes so that they may learn from their experiences. Cooking is more than just baking a cake or pie. The class teaches the students why something burned or why their cake would not rise. It includes not only the actual cooking, but also the cleaning-up that goes along with it. Clothing classes are another division of the home ec. learning experience. Up to three years of choosing fabric, patterns, sewing, ripping out mistakes and making cloth- ing presentable enough to wear are just some of the class curriculum. Preparing, planning and budgeting all go into the mak- ing up of a wedding notebook, which is a requirement for Family Relations. " Family Relations teaches us to budget our money and shows us what it really is like, " said senior Gayle Eytche- son. Treating an egg as if it were a baby is what all Child Care students spend two weeks doing. Babysitters, dia- ries and writing a two page report on child abuse (if the egg breaks) are a few of the possibilities of the class. One main purpose of these courses is to teach students through experience. The courses can be very helpful in later liff . " The Home Economics classes that I have taken taught me some of the basic things I am going to need for life after I get out of high school, " said senior Kim Mattes Learning from experience — Home Economi Career experience, a major benefit of industrial arts Many students take Industrial Arts classes to learn how to fix minor car quirks, make repairs on small appliances and do basic carpentry such as making shelves. A few take it quite farther than that; they are the people who take their experience from the high school class and seek higher learning in that same field. Throughout the year there is one hall in school that is somewhat isolated from the rest. Within this hall are several roorr , - ' ' h different types of tools in them. These tools are used by the students to acquire their skills. The Industrial Arts Department in our school has many courses for the student to choose from. Whether it is Mechanical Drawing, Artistic Drawing, Woods, Auto Me- chanics, General Metals, Basic Drafting, Mechanic Met- als, Electricity or Power and Transportation, there is only one place in New Haven where you can learn these skills and that is New Haven High School. 140 — Learning from Gxp2 e — Industrial Arts DEMONSTRATING THE PROPER technique of re- moving rust from a fender, Mr. Phil Ritchie uses a torch.

College courses, a must for careers New Haven offers a variety of different courses. In- cluded in these courses are tfie slightly more difficult, college prepatory classes. These classes are designed for the students that plan to continue their education after the high school level. Students may choose to start taking these classes their freshman year. Such classes as algebra, grammar, health, literature and a foreign language are recommend- ed at the ninth grade level. Geometry, grammar, speech and biology are a few of the college prep classes at the tenth grade level. During the junior year, a variety of English courses are offered. These include Academic, and Honors Grammar, American Literature or Mythology. Other classes such as Anatomy and Physiology, Sociology or Psychology can be taken at the junior or senior year. Twelth grade, which is considered the most important year for preparing to go off to college. Senior English, Calculus, Chemistry, Advanced Math, and Government are offered. Although these classes are difficult, they are still very helpful and recommended for the students that plan to continue their education beyond the high school level. In the future, more classes such as these will be re- quired. A bill passed in Congress upping the required number of credits to 38 from the present number of 32. However, this will not have any influence on students until the year 1989. 142 Headed-for-coHe TIME OUT for a rest is found by Kim Mattes in her Senior English class.

SENIOR GREG PEAKS dem- onstrates how to get work done in school and not at home. HERE RITA HENRY shows us what she did after school: homework. STUD V HALL can really help those students who have lots of homework. What would school be without homework? After working hard all day in school, the last thing a student looks forward to is going home and dragging the old school books with him! Homework is something which everyone gets through- out their high school years. Although it is dreaded by many, most realize that it is essential in passing a course. For some, homework comes before the television, milk and cookies and extra curricular activities. Yet many choose to do their homework after they have done every- thing they like better. Then there are the ones who wait ' till the next day in school to complete their assignment. However, rh.?ra are always one or two people who fail to do their homework assignment at all. Homework may be looked upon as a headache or just a pain, but regardless it still has to be completed inorder to obtain credit for the course. Maybe not all of it has to get done, but most of it should be. What if we didn ' t have any homework to do? Then school would have to last another month or two to make up for all the lost time. If we were to not have any homework how would we learn anything? We only have one hour per class and we surely can ' t learn how to do something, figure it out and complete the assignment that we were given all in one hour. 144 Homework Home- o k 145 PERSPECTIVE DRAWING is one of the many types of drawing learned in art class. TRYING TO decide which work of art is his best, Andy Dyson examines his work carefully. MAKING SPEECHES some- times has to be done back-to- back as Joel Reed and Julie Leffel show us. DURING A DEBATE, speech students must show two sides to a subject. GETTING SITUATED can be a problem when several works of art are on your desk. 146 The arts Painting, drawing, and speaking attract some Each year many students come into New Haven High in hopes of finding something that they are good at. Some of the courses offered at New Haven give students the chance to do just that. When we think of talent, we think of the arts; here at New Haven students have many different types of art classes which to choose from. When we think of the arts we usually think of drawing, painting or some kind of ceramics. This is definitely a kind of art; however, there is also a different type of art- speech. In art class there are many different things to be learned. One might learn how to draw a still life or draw in a perspective sort of way. Yet we also might learn how to draw people or paint scenes. In art class there are many different skills which may be developed. Making clay pots or jewelry are a couple of skills that might be obtained. Whether you are drawing your shoe or drawing your- self, painting the Mona Lisa or painting something which you have created, art class has a variety of classes for everyone. When talking of art we don ' t necessarily need to be talking of drawing or painting. Speech is also an art form. In speech we learn not only different forms of speeches but also how to speak properly. There are many different types of speeches which can be learned: Impromptu, Discussion and Poetry are among some of the more popular ones. Within New Haven High School there is also a Debate class offered. In debate students learn to take sides in a topic and try to prove that their side is the best side to be taken.

Band displays its drive A band with a " heart " , which includes drive, desire and attitude is a successful band. Some students feel that the marching band had this, this year. The band felt a belonging to each other, sharing each other ' s problems and being really concerned for one another. At the end of the summer the band Highlights, and Lancers, head off to Camp Potawatami for band camp, where they practice marching for parades, competition and football season. The band marches in several parades including the New Haven parade, with the largest being the Three Rivers parade, where the band received the Sweep- stakes award given to the outstanding band in Fort Wayne. The band also received a 2nd division rating at the marching band contest. The band also performed at the opening of the new section at Southtown Mall. This was the band ' s first year for a girl drum major. Everyone enjoyed Monique Pumphrey directing the band along with Gary Stroh. The band also has two new drum coaches, Dave Nus- baum and Gary Schuckel. and with their individualized instruction, the drum line became a more talented, disci- plined drum line. Some other people that made the band outstanding were the Highlights and Lancers. The girls added flash to the football and basketball games. The Highlights were told at contest that they performed very professionally. The band parents group, under the leadership Dawn Bilik, has become a very supportive group. More parents have become involved and good things are in store for the future. Students feel the band played very well and are proud of having a band with so much of spirit. Mr. Lininger noted, " A band director is always looking for a bigger band, but more important is the band that has a bigger heart " . £,and 149 GREG JACKSON makes a face at the mention of song he doesn ' t like, while others look at him oddly.

Todd Walters A little music for everyone Many the classes have been dropped frona the schedule in recent years, and Mixed Choir is being dropped for next year. There are basically two reasons why it is being dropped. One is that there is low enrollment, and there ' s also a tendency to schedule the incoming freshman in an academic program, and the freshmen don ' t have that much room for electives. But kids will notice later, as they approach their junior year, that they will have more time. When asked how he felt about it, Mr. Henke said that in a way it bothered him because the young person ' s voice, if not used, tends to go bad, and sometimes they need a " preparation choir " to get ready for Concert and Swing Choir. Mixed choir performs annually at Christ- mas for Cable 10, and also at their Winter and Spring Concerts. Concert Choir has performed in various places such as nursing homes, schools, Chan- nel 33 at Christmas, and their regular Winter and Spring Concerts. Mr. Henke said that the Concert Choir has been one of the best in many years because they sing better in tune, especially for a high school choir. Their TV taping was especially good as was the audio because it was done in one take, and in half an hour. Swing choir has been excellent, but the recession has cut into most of the functions, but it still worked well. They need to look ahead to next year to see if the economy improves. Swing choir performs all over Fort Wayne, as well as their annual Winter and Spring Concerts. Choir— 151 u A haven own Students get a taste of Latin culture as they partake in a JCL convention.

Here, everyone works together to complete a project. Clubs In a haven the size of our school, it is sometimes hard to find those people who have the same interests and goals. Luckily there are many teachers who spent time with organizations so that friends could work together on pro- jects and learning activities. Clubs were an integral part of many students ' lives. Some were work ori- ented clubs such as Wrestlerettes, Olympians, and Pep Club, but working together was fun and friendships can last for a life-time. Other clubs were interest clubs. Dra- ma Club gave students a chance to work in all aspects of a drama produc- tion from lights and sound to actual on- stage work. The key was that these students had a common bond. Some clubs combine learning and fun. Cultural activities for the language clubs were fun but also allowed for ex- ploration into other cultures giving in- sights into people from around the world. Involved, too, for some were foreign travel, state-wide conventions, and cultural events. Whatever the club, its function was to provide a haven for those with a common interest. This haven brought together old friends and new friends alike. Making plans at an Olympians meeting is junior Deann Gierhart. Olympians are important to the track meets as they help set things up like the pole vault. Speaking and acting involve many students During the 82-83 school year the Drama Club performed the most productions it ever has. The year started off with the first annual class play competi- tion; " A Tribute To Neil Simon, " which played on the evenings of October 1st and 2nd. Soon after that auditions were held for the fall play " Teahouse of the August Moon, " which was performed in late November. This was the only fall play to play only two nights; a Thursday and a Saturday night, skipping Fri- day night. Next came the play " Our Town, " which played on the nights of January 27th, 28th, and 29th. This particular play had each of the female roles tri- ple cast. " Our Town " was also directed by junior Kevin Bassett. In years past the Drama and Music departments have always teamed up to present a Spring Musical. This years musical was " Oklahoma! " This musical was put together in a month and a half and played on the evenings of March 18th and 19th. The Speech Team participat- ed in four meets during the year. Junior Gary Stroh seemed to dominate in all of them receiving several first ' s in Radio Broad- casting. Senior Jeff Moore placed in several meets with Dis- cussion and seniors Rich Gongaware and Sharon Darling- ton placed twice in Duo. Junior Gary Stroh was the only New Haven student to ad- vance to state, but three Duo In- terpretation teams managed to make it to Regionals. The Debate Team had a good year according to Debate Coach Mrs. Osborn. " We had to travel far to find meets, but we did well. " said Mrs. Osborn at the teams annual tea. Club From Row: Tad ACkins.

DAWN CHRISTIANER AND Tom Losher are served at the German banquet by former student Kevin Harper. Languages active " Raising money iind working hard. " This was the motto of this years foreign language clubs. The French Club started off the year with a bang. They took first place in the Homecoming parade. The club also sold candy and perfume throughout the year and sold garters during Sa- die Hawkins. At the end of the year, the French Club made over 800 dollars. This money went to- wards two-50 dollar scholarships that were given to Curt Hunter and Jessica Marhover. They also paid $2.50 toward everyone ' s dinner at Cafe Johnelle. Spanish Club inventoried Dps N ' Downs and sponsored the Din- ner Theater for their yearly in- come. They also had a banner in the Homecoming parade, along with a float. They held a Christ- mas party and a banquet. The German and Latin Clubs gave awards to the seniors.

Much work goes into putting together the bi-weekly Herald. The students work to- gether as a whole to come up with the best newspaper they know how and to meet all dead- lines. " We have a lot of fun in Journalism class, but it ' s not a " blow off " class like so many think, " commented Kirsten Mac- gregor. Mirage The Mirage staff also works with many deadlines. They must be accurate and meet these deadlines in order to keep costs down and to insure the return of the yearbook as soon as possible. Media Club The Media Club is also very busy setting lights for plays, ban- quets, and even spec ial speak- ers. They have to be able to an- ticipate the movement of people on stage so that they can keep them in the spotlight at all times needed. DECIDING WHAT picture to use in ttie yearbook is a time consuming job, but Ricli Vincenski seems to manage rather well.

Building the school spirit Olympians The Olympians are very busy girls. They have to help out at the track meets. These girls have to measure things like how far a shot has been thrown. They even announce the up-coming events at the meet or the person who won. The girls are very helpful to the coaches. Wresterettes The Wrestlerettes help the coaches by keeping time for drills, matches and conditioning in the wrestling room. They run the concession stands at home meets and tournaments. They keep score for home meets. They give ribbons, and oranges to the wrestlers. At the age group tournament, they keep the statistics. Freshman Wrest- lerette Tina Thompson said, " It was a neat experience. " Pep Club Pep Club members are rath- er busy during sectionals, and other big games or matches. They sometimes bake things for the team. During the Home- coming parade, they all ride in a car, giving the teams much support. Pep Club member Tina Wolfe said " It ' s a lot of fun.

HffiEissE asa Carefully cutting out silhouettes the honorary art society students dis- play their work. Organizations raise pride Mr. Hoffer discusses the can drive with senior student council member Diana Bultemeyer. This year ' s drive was again successful. Student council meets every Tues- day morning to discuss issues an projects around the school and com- munity. Most are held in the library. Stu. Council The Student Council is an or- ganization of students who repre- sent New Haven in and out of school. The student council is re- sponsible for many activities throughout the school. Some of these include, the sales of greet- ings, the decorating of halls dur- ing the holidays, helping services throughout the community. The student council helped to raise the spirits of the community with " Up with New Haven, " The students made posters and paint- ed windows of shops. Homecoming is a big event within the student council. They are in charge of most activities including Powder Puff, crowning of homecoming queen and court, parade and floats. The officers, elected in the spring, serve for the upcoming year. This year ' s president was Wendy Raver who contributed greatly to the student council. The vice president was Karen Augustine, the treasurer was Joel Reed and Missy Werling served as secretary. Honor Society The Honor Society this year was made of 49 seniors all ob- taining an 8.5 grade point aver- age every year through high school. Being a member of the Honor Society is an outstanding achievement. Keeping an 8.5 G.P.A. is not an easy task. Much hard work and long study hours are put into such an achieve- ment. Officers are elected each year for President, vice Presi- dent, secretary, and treasurer. This year ' s President is David Police, followed by Karen Zuercher and Kim Wagner serv- ing as vice president, Sharon Darlington served as secretary and treasurer is Nancy Wolf. Sponsoring the honor society is Mrs. Snyder. She is responsible for getting committees together and supervising any activities they chose to do. " The officers were a great help this year, " said Mrs. Snyder. " If there was any- thing that needed to be done they were always there. " Being in the Honor Society in- cludes a dinner banquet. The banquet is to honor these seniors and bring recognition to their hard work and dedication. A gold cord, worn with graduation gown the night of commencement and certificates were awarded. Hon. Art Soc. This year ' s Honorary Art Soci- ety is composed of very talented students. Being in the Honorary Art Society is not like every other club. The students are in charge of showcases, displays, improve- ment of bulletin boards and aid- ing teachers with posters and other projects. To be a member one must obtain in art a grade point average of 7.0 or better, and a grade point average of 5.0 in school. Recommendations are an important part in joining the Honorary Art Society.

The president of this year ' s Honorary Art Society is Lisa Kressley. The secretary and treasurer is Lora Caudill. The Historian is Karen Augustine. V More involvement FCA FCA is a discussion group that meets twice a month at different members homes. They begin with prayer. Then one of the offi- cers begins the discussion by ex- plaining the night ' s topic which they have researched. Members share their opinions on the sub- ject. This is followed by closing prayer. After the meeting they usually have snacks and goof around. Every once in a while they have guest speakers come such as other school coaches. This year ' s officers are presi- dent Joe Graham, vice presi- dent — Sarah Lopshire, secre- tary—Cathy White, treasurer- Mark Miquelon. " it ' s a really good way to know the other side of people, " said Senior Cathy White. Freshman Laura Zuercher re- plied, " 1 think it ' s fun. " Senior John Hans comment- ed, " It ' s really great to be around riends; they ' re very encourag- ng and you can learn a lot from Science Science club is a group headed up by Mr. Klopfenstein. This group meets every other Wednesday. To make money they sell bulldog plates. This years officers are Rich Remaks — president and Dave Peters — treasurer. " It ' s pretty nice, " said sopho- more Dave Peters. Campus Life Campus Life is a unique dis- cussion oriented club which meets in different students homes each week. Meetings combine wild fun and craziness with open discussions about rel- evant topics (fear, loneliness, sex and dating. God, etc.). Members also participate in area wide events and trips, including a ski trip and spring break in Florida. Kirk Heemsoth a newcomer to Campus Life, said " 1 think it ' s fun.

Signs leading to a popular summer spot Ha- venhurst GcL ' Course. 4 Advertisers The New Haven community was an important part of the student life. How many times did we have to grab a Big Mac or a Rax or run over to DQ? Many businesses were here when we started school and will be here long after we have finished. Some provided jobs for students and some will provide jobs for careers. No matter what, the business com- munity helps to support the school. In spite of a slumping economy, the local business were called upon to under- write many aspects of school life. Some businesses help by providing the awards for Awards Day. Others contributed by advertising in programs for basketball or the plays, but the big- gest contribution is probably for this book you are reading as businesses have paid five dollars of the cost of printing this book. Local businesses thrive by local pa- tronage. They have helped our school in many ways. Our haven needs the business community to provide neces- sary goods and services and likewise, they need us as we provide a great community relationship. Students will one day pay their water bills at Traveling down Highway 14. one can see this familiar site. many valuable businesses.

Howev- er, this task grew harder as the year went on. The staff was assembled and editors were appointed. It was time to begin! The question asked by many was; " How? " Styles were drawn for the different sec- tions, a theme was picked and a color was decided upon for the cover. From there on it was up to the staff to fill the two-hundred and then some pages of the 1983 " Mirage " . As school progressed so did the yearbook. Photos were being taken, printed and then put onto pages. Copy was writte n and cap- tions were typed. Deadlines had to be met at various times throughout the year. " One thing about this year was that most of the staff always had their pages completed on time, " said Rick Vincenski. The beginning of the year was the time to work on Student life and Fall sports. The people section of the book was completed by late winter, and it seemed as though the rest of the book was put together in the last few weeks of school. Some pages were complet- ed after school was out. Ellen Felton, Gayle Eytcheson Mirage Staff Editors , , .

A year of growth The school year of 1982-1983 brought many happenings and changes to the stu- dents of NHHS. One major change was the decision of closing down International Har- vester. This change affected many families of students. Several students were forced to move away. Although the Harvester tragedy brought much sadness, the school year brought many fun-filled activities. Along with the floats, crowning of queen, and the glorious victory over Woodlan, Homecoming was once again a giant success. From Homecoming to Prom, dances provided not only a chance to get together with friends, but a fun-filled evening. This year also brought the retirement of Mr. Verl Oberlin. Mr. Oberlin will be missed by all who knew him. His humor and optimis- tic outlook brought joy to many. INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER has been Fort Wayne ' s biggest employer. Many will lose their jobs K3 ?. result of its closing. THE H ' ' sHTS play an important part in both football r aketball games. Here is part of their halfii? T rmance to " Still.

While walking through the halls or sitting in class, a happy face could always be seen. Each day, despite it ' s small disappointments, brought a lot of people something to smile about. Wheter it be just a casual " hi " from a close friend, a club activity, or a victory in a sports event, every day seemed to be promis- ing. Sports events influenced many lives. NHHS came very close during fall and winter sports to winning the All-Sports Award. From Football to Track, victories were shared by all. The excitement of blocking a possible winning kick, or a last second victory, the gladness was felt by fans as well as players alike. As the school year ended, the band fin- ished with a win in the Wendy ' s coupon con- test. With help from all the year was memora- ble one. AT THE HOMECOMING Community Pep Rally, senior Greg Jackson shows some school spirit. WEARING A BIG smile is senior Dawn Chris- tianer. Very seldom was Dawn seen not wearinf- ■ smile or grin of some sort. Closing — 203 " A haven all its own 55 THE BEAVERS brought a new pride and fun in athletics for the general population. They could play basketball, but they could also laugh. We all could learn from them. Reflect- ions This year will be one of many good memories for the students who frequented the haven all its own. Many outstanding accomplishments were attained and many new friends and relationships were begun. But as all things must do, it came to an end. It is but a memory — a time to reflect on and savor in the years to come. The seniors are off to new and different horizons, but for most of the students, the haven will continue to be some- thing special for a few more years. It will be a part of us forever. ■P J ' 1 Li 1 SENIOR AWARDS mean much to the recipients. Judy Yagodinski glows upon receiving her award. OTHERS WILL BE back and are working hard to receive their honors. Todd Hook here works to develop his athletic skills. WE WILL REMEMBER the Homecoming festivi- ties including spirit week and powder puff activi- ties. A part of that whole ceremony was the crowning of the queen.
