We met at ball games where each team had friends of ours, wedding recep- tions of our friends and the pools and other places along the way. First of all at the base ball games we all got together even though we might not have been playing. Everybody would meet at the ball parks just so they could talk and get along together. Leslie Spearin commented, " I went to the ball parks to talk to my friends. I went to the ball parks to see friends that I have not seen for awhile. " Another place where we met was at wedding receptions. The biggest one had to be Mike Chevirons and Denise Pick- etts wedding July 29. Everyone was so proud that two ex-graduates had wed. The pool was a good place to meet this summer because of the heat which reached over 95 degrees a total of 48 days. Everyone was trying to stay cool and get a tan at the same time. While doing so we met many friends there that were there for the same reason.

Pride is flying high As pride continued past the first few weeks of school, emotions and eyes were set on Homecoming. Getting the floats, banners, and other competitions going got the week rolling. Pride was seen in all events of the week. The apparel worn to the loud out- bursts during school, competition in banners to floats, Mr. Irresistable to the spirit chains seemed to show what peo- ple thought of the annual events. As the week came to an end, the game was finally here. Balloons were bought but soon were lost as the favorite team opened the scoring on our second posses- sion. The countless balloons floated away but the pride continued on through the game and the year. A big hit of the year was the new fash- ion for the guys — the football jackets. The jackets were worn to classes, to churches, and to the hang-out spots in Fort Wayne. Football was not the only source for students to show Bulldog spirit. Going out with friends on a Friday night, get- ting ready for that special person, or washing the car to show off the hot set of wheels were showing this sort of thing. The school year of 1983-84 will be re- membered as a year that the bulldog pride was flying high! A CONSTANT REMINDER of Homecom- ing week is the class banners hanging on the upper level of the gym. ToME T WITHOUT The Student Body takes part in rowdy pep session. THIS WHITE MESS is the evidence left by some very wild students out to have some time on weekends. Opening — 7 8 — Student Life Divider Pride is flying high Student Life As the first day of school in late August melted into the days off for snow and teacher ' s conferences, the lives of many people were altered. Now that games were an added pleasure for Friday and Saturday nights, weekends were no longer the time for revisiting the lake cottages but to stay home and be with friends. Beginning school was different for everyone. For some, it meant the end of two-a-day practices, the air-conditioned relief from the heat, and a totally new experience of being lost, especially for the Frosh. The first day showed to everybody what kind of pride the school had in its people and activities. The school year bore on for many, but students found ways to amuse themselves on weekends. Since homework was not part of most people ' s schedules, parties, tee-peeing, wasting money at ar- cades or movies, and hitting athletic events became part of most everyone ' s life. No matter what we did, we always expressed our pride in our school and teams. When school drew to the heart-breaking, but relieving, end, 193 seniors marched through the doors of New Haven High School for the last time as students. Though some felt glad, the seniors real- ized that the days of being a Bulldog student ended but the PRIDE OF BEING A BULLDOG continued to FLY HIGH. CLEANING UP TOILET paper meant work for some but satisfac- tion of doing it for others. Student Life Divider — 9 The Festivity Homecoming and spirit week started out with a bang as students and staff dressed in western duds and carried toy guns to blast away the Eagles. On Tues- day, letter sweaters, full skirts, bobbie socks, and saddle shoes were seen on the girls while guys slicked back their hair and pulled on Levi ' s and black leather jackets. Almost 100 percent participation oc- curred on Wednesday, dress-up day, with Thursday (sweats day) running a close second. Powder Puff players suited up in jerseys and sweats to show their support for their classes and team. The Powder Puff game took place on Thursday night. During the first half, Kim Vachon scored on a 83-yard touch- down run for the Juniors and Freshmen. The Seniors and Sophomores also scored a TD, but it was not counted because of a penalty. During the second half, the Seniors and Sophomores came alive. Senior Pat- ty Weekly ran across the line for six points. Barb Hoar, Junior, attempted to score again for the Juniors and Frosh, but due to more penalties her touchdown was called back. Senior Kris Swenson wrapped things up for ' 84 and ' 86 when she pushed her way through the Junior and Freshmen defense to score the winning touchdown, making the final score of the game 12 to 8. As sophomore announcer Bob Treat remarked, " It was a far-out game; excit- ing to the last minute. " The community pep session wrapped up an exciting Thursday. Student Coun- cil President, Joel Reed, began the fes- tivities by calling Julie Sweet, co-chair- man of the Powder-Puff committee, to the microphone. She presented the pow- der puffs to the Senior Sophomore class presidents, Mark Shaffer and James Ball. Members of the winning team chanted " Eighty-four and eighty-six! " during the presentation. SENIOR MEMBERS OF the football team told the crowd at the community pep ses- sion just how badly the Bulldogs are going to beat the Eagles. CARRYING THE SOPHOMORE banner are Christy Levy and Lori Dager. The ban- ner came in third place. 3ggfk ■ % J fi WALKING DOWN THE 50-yard line at halftime on Friday, is 1983 ' s Homecoming Queen Cyndi Romine and Drew Bates. 10 — Homecoming THIS TOWER Of Purple and gold is com- posed of New Haven students showing their spirit on Friday.

AT THE HOMECOMING pep session, ju- niors and seniors express their enthusi- asm. " EIGHTY FOUR AND EIGHTY SIX! " Chant the members of the winning powder puff team. Homecoming — 1 1 irit is flying high Next, Powder-Puff cheerleaders Den- ny McGill, Mark Kinney, Bronson Odem, Jon Leonard, and Mike Bodine entertained the crowd with their rendi- tion of " Two Bits. " The court was then announced by Ellen Felten. Members of the Varsity football team were recognized by coach Jim Kirkton. Several made comments on the following night ' s game, and thanked the coaching staff and fans for their help and support. The evening concluded after the varsity, junior varsity, and freshmen cheer- leaders mounted to the words of " Stand- Up for the Bulldogs. " A long awaited Friday morning ar- rived covered by a blanket of fog. Smiles crossed the faces of New Haven students as the radio announced a two hour delay. When we finally did get to school at 10:00, we had to attend only 15 minutes of our third hour classes before heading to the gym for a school pep session. This assembly began with students rising to their feet and clapping to the tune of " Old New Haven. " Next came a well-performed skit by aspiring actors, Mr. Stephan and company. Spirit week chairman Shelley Gillenwater then pre- sented junior Toby Beard with the Mr. Irresistable award, while senior Charlie Moore was announced as this year ' s Mr. Muscle. Also, the Senior class ' spirit chain, which measured nearly one-tenth of a mile, was proclaimed the winner. The sophomores came in a close second. Coronation committee chairman Sara Lopshire then introduced the homecom- ing court and their escorts. They are as follows: Freshman Andrea Gilley and Jeff Sowers; Sophomore Lisa Momper and Freddy Bredemeyer; Junior Rene Boschet and Matt Cheviron; and Seniors Mary Kiebel with Ernie Hoffman, LeAnn Tatman with Craig Fox, and Cyndi Romine with Drew Bates. RIDING THEIR FIRE truck in Homecom- ing Parade, Varsity and JV cheerleaders smile for the cameraman. Auxilary cheer- leaders were also on the truck.

From the looks on their faces, are their ties too tight? SHOWING THEIR STUFF for the camera are swinging singles Mary Erbelding, sen- ior, and junior Barb Hoar, and that cool cat, Pat Kage, junior. Homecoming — 1 3 Pep, Power, and Pride The day passed slowly, but finally it was time to go home and grab something to eat before rushing back to view or par- ticipate in the parade. Highlights of the annual event were our Grand Marshall, Scott Tsueleff of WMEE, class and club floats, members of all football teams and cheerleaders on fire trucks, and the band. The parade route had to be changed at the last minute because of the train tracks, an event that kept Chairman Brenda Ehinger busy. She commented, " It was a hassle, but it turned out well overall. " The week ended Friday night with the game against the Columbia City Eagles (followed by the Homecoming Dance). This much awaited, all-important event started at 7:30 Friday night. People be- gan arriving long before that, however, to assure themselves good seats to watch New Haven take on and defeat the Ea- gles. Even from the start there wasn ' t much doubt that the ' Dogs would do just that. The players in purple and gold scored touchdown after touchdown, while hold- ing the Eagles to one. When the final seconds ticked off the clock, the score- board read New Haven 35, Columbia City 7. The Homecoming Dance, which fol- lowed the game, was the perfect end to an exciting, spirit-filled week. The stu- dents danced to the latest songs such as: " Come On Feel the Noise, " " One Thing Leads to Another " and many more. The dance was ended by the final slow song. This was not only the end of the dance, but the end of a super week that made us all proud to be Bulldogs. TOILET PAPER is a common sight around town Friday morning. Obviously the cheer- leaders didn ' t get much sleep. HERE THE LOVELY 1983 Homecoming Court show their spirit during the game against the Eagles. 14 — Homecoming DECORATING THE GYM with designer toilet paper is senior Odem.

Homecoming — 15 DURING THE CANAL Days parade, many people gathered around to watch the many T| participants, one of which was the New Ha- ' " ven High School Marching Band. DISCUSSING THE UPCOMING events at cheerleading camp, at Indiana University, are seniors Cathy Bredemeyer and Kris Swenson. SHOWING OFF HIS stuff, junior John Drews goes for a slam. John enjoyed play- ing basketball throughout the summer. 16 — Summer Fun Students battle record-setting summer heat As the days begin to shorten, one real- izes that the summer ' s end is near, and the memories of those three months, which seemed to have gone by so quickly, are all that are left. As one looks back on the summer many events are recalled, some of which include many sports and social activities. Not to be forgotten are the various types of summer camps, which many students participate in. Some of these camps are involved with school activities such as cheerleading, volleyball, football, bas- ketball, and a Student Council Leader- ship Camp. These camps provide many new friendships and experiences for all who attend. Many students also participate in sports throughout the summer. Girls play softball at Havenhurst and boys play baseball at John Young. Swimming, one of the most popular sports of the summer, was enjoyed by many. Whether it was taking a dip in one ' s own backyard or going to one of the area pools, it was a very refreshing way to beat the record-setting summer heat. " This summer was one of the hottest I can ever remember! My friends and I had many water fights and went swimming at Jury often, to try and beat the heat, " replied Bobby Treat. Yes, summer brings new and exciting experiences to all, whether it ' s that first attempt to go skiing or just learning to drive. Many memories are captured dur- ing those three magical months. Kym Jones replied, " My summer was a lot of fun, but towards the last couple of weeks I was really getting excited about being a freshman and starting a new school. " Everyone always looks forward to summer for the freedom and indepen- dence, but after a while many start be- coming bored, and that thought of get- ting back to school to see old friends and new faces is intriguing. Summer Fun — 17 NOT WASTING ANY time, sophomore Freddie Bredemeyer is starting the year off right as seen here wtih junior Maria Fisher and sophomore Christy Levy. SOPHOMORE SHERIE SAYLOR is re- alizing that driving to school may be a better route to take as she glances into the parking lot after stepping off the bus. 18— Back to School FRIENDSHIPS ARE RENEWED as the new school year begins at N.H.H.S. Shown here are juniors Mike Luebke, Chad Speaks, and Brian Steele making use of the few minutes left before their lunch period ends. MANY STUDENTS ENJOY walking around the halls or talking with friends before the school day begins. Freshman Darlene Arnold is enjoying both at the same time. IT IS NOT uncommon to see teachers and students talking in the halls before class begins, as seen here in Senior com- mons. wwpww ■ P Sr Back to school, an experience DRIVING TO SCHOOL is a privilege that most seniors enjoy. Seniors LeAnn Tatman and Craig Fox make use of the few minutes it allows them to be together. The summer seemed to pass by quick- ly and before you knew it the parking lot was filled with cars, and students were once again walking the halls of New Ha- ven High School. Smurf and Garfield folders which read " I live for Saturdays " were a popular choice again this year. Upper classmen walked non-chalantly down the halls watching freshmen fran- tically searching for their homeroom class. Not only was this amusing, but it also brought back many memories to seniors who a few years back had been doing the same thing. There was a mixture of feelings as stu- dents started out the new school year. Most were glad to see their friends from the year before and happily engaged in conversation until the dreaded first bell rang. At that time all students reported to homeroom only to be faced with filling out names, addresses, and phone num- bers on what seemed to be an endless supply of cards. Teachers could be heard saying, " only one more card to fill out, " and " please place your card on top and pass them on up to the front. " Yet the beginning of the school year had a different meaning to each and ev- ery student. For freshmen it was all a new experience and for seniors it was their last at New Haven High School. Both students and teachers looked for- ward to the year ahead. " I was looking forward to seeing a lot of my friends that I hadn ' t seen all summer, but summer was BLAST! " said Laurie Potter. This seemed to be supported by many others. " I love my summers when I can read, travel, loaf at the lake and loaf Back to School— 19 at home, but when the end of August comes, I am usual- ly ready to return to the world of students and grammar, " said Mrs. Holt. The school year had begun and there were no more weekends at the lake. Instead, in its place, were football games, dances, and of course homework. But once again stu- dents found themselves preparing for homecoming. While walking down the halls you could sense the feeling of pride and an- ticipation of the coming year at New Ha- ven High School. This was expressed by Dana Sinclair when she said, " Last sum- mer was one of the best. I had fun, but this year is also fun. It is gonna be one of the best!!! " Pride is flying high at N.H.H.S. ' ■4 BELMONT SUPPLIES MANY N.H.H.S. students with school supplies each year. Freshman Chico Pranger enjoys looking at their selection of Garfield folders. THE BEGINNING OF every school year involves buying school supplies. This year is no exception for sophomore Dawn Duffey. FRIENDS OFTEN LINE the halls in the morning to talk, finish last night ' s home- work, and store up energy for walking up and down the stairs, which seems to take place every other class. 20— Back to School . ' t - " -WE -l - BUYING NEW CLOTHES for the up- coming school year is a common practice which sophomore Matt Pranger likes to follow. GETTING OUT OF class, being with friends, and yelling all have something in common, a pep session. April Schneider, Michelle Stoyanoff, and Chris Griffin are showing their reaction after the first pep session. SENIORS JULI MAINES, Michelle Pe- lak, and Bill Gray are finding out that not every school day starts out perfect- ly. Back to School— 21 NHHS presents: " Anne Frank. " On November 16, 1983, the NHHS Drama Club presented " The Diary of Anne Frank, " a play based on fact, to the New Haven Junior High for a charge of 50$. As part of the NHJH curriculum, students were required to read " The Diary of Anne Frank. " Therefore, the play served as two purposes learning and pleasure. The students seemed to be thorough- ly enhanced in the play and following the final scene of the play the students joined in a nice round of applause. When asked about performing the dress rehearsal for the NHJH, junior Leslie Wood (Meip) commented, " I thought it was a good chance to per- form in front of an audience before opening night. " Senior Joel Reed (Mr. Frank) com- mented, " I realize that the show is real- ly hard and it takes total concentration, f m glad we were able to perform today and it will really help us tomorrow. The show will be really great tomorrow! " November 17, opening night. No more room for mistakes! Excitement filled the auditeria as an- ticipation arose. Behine the scenes, members of the cast were calmly rehearsing their lines, while others were quietly concentrating on the up coming event. Following junior Brian Harper ' s (Mr. Kraler) first scene he reflected, " I feel better now that I ' ve finished one scene. There were no mistakes— thank God! " Out front the deeply absorbed audi- ence was filled with humor as sopho- more Diana Henry (Anne) tried dili- gently to explain to her father that she was a good person and that there really was a good side to her. Between scenes the cast scattered frantically trying to get things ready and to their places before the lights would once again return. Following the play a member of the audience, Mr. Wright, Latin teacher noted, " All of the hard work showed. I also am very impressed by the props. " He continued, " It ' s amazing to know what the human spirit can endure if it has to. " After the final scene of opening night, the cast gathered together for re- freshments as each person told of his or her small mix-ups and greatest fears while on stage. December 18, the second perfor- mance of " The Diary of Anne Frank. " Back stage was filled with excite- ment and anxiousness as each member of the cast prepared himself for the sec- ond presentation. As the play began, the audience seemed captivated. While continuing humor was added, the audience responded openly. Again the audience seemed to thor- oughly enjoy the play. Following the play cast members once again removed their stage make- up and changed their clothing while cheerfully talking about the how the play went. Out of the approximate 850 persons who attended the play, Saturday even- SOPHOMORE, DIANA HENRY, writes in her diary as she portrays Anne Frank in " The Diary of Anne Frank.

Once again, as in the previous two presentations, the show was a success. The event now was beginning to seem routine. However, there still was much excitement filling the cast mem- bers back stage — for every night is a different audience. Following the play, Lori Fedele (Mrs. Frank) hosted a cast party. One can imagine the things were talked and joked about, such as the scene where Rik Yingling (Peter) spent a period of time on stage with his zipper in the down position! Or how the cat managed to get his head stuck in a box stealing most of the audiences atten- tion, not to mention losing the first cat (they went through three) at the dress rehearsal and not finding it until open- ing night! But everyone knows the mix-ups such as these are what makes the plays something to remember. Director Dennis Eller concluded, " The people who saw the play were very moved by it. Many commented that this was the first time they had seen it performed. Second, they thor- oughly enjoyed it. " All the cast members agree that " The Diary of Anne Frank " was surely one of the most meaningful plays they have ever done.

The musical for this year, " You ' re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, " was a great success for everyone in it and everyone who saw it. Mr. Dennis Eller, the direc- tor, was pleased with the production, as were most of the actors and actresses. " It ' ll all come together if Babs does not screw up, " joked junior Rik Yingling just before opening night. Beth Behrendt, the little red-headed girl, commented, " I think it ' s neat to be a part of this show!! " This musical was definitely a comedy but Leslie Wood ' s (Lucy) singing was a serious success. The mixture of her songs and Joel Reed ' s dancing was the high- light of the show. Joel Reed added a new dimension to the Snoopy character. Charlie Brown was brought to life by senior Mike McKinley, who displayed good singing in the anticipated " fly the kite " scene. The music is, of course, very impor- tant in a musical play. Gary Stroh, Cla- rence Boyd, and Leslie Bilik made up the orchestra for the music performed by the cast and the NHHS Concert Choir, which had a small part in the opening scene. For the seniors, this last musical per- formance was surely a success. Gary Stroh, Babs Metzger, Joel Reed, and Lori Fedele were honored by Mr. Eller at the end of the final performance. JOEL REED PORTRAYED Snoopy as the analytical fuzzy face with various comments, usually humorous, in a way only our student council president could. Charlie Brown the Musical — 25 Five minutes to live by " Hey, what do I need to know for Garvin ' s test? " " I ' ve got to go to the bathroom and back up to Mitchel ' s room, hurry! " Just one more kiss, I promise you won ' t be late. " " Did you hear the latest about Su- sie and Jim? I ' ll tell you at lunch. " These are just some of the many things we hear during our five min- utes passing periods. Students do many different things during this time, ranging from passing notes to kissing their boy girl friends on the sneak, to talking with friends. Many GOING TO THE restroom now so that he won ' t have to bother his teacher for a pass is junior Jeff Vachon. students feel that 5 minutes is not adequate time. Junior Jamie Trahin said, " If you have to go to the bathroom and to a class across the building, there ' s just not enough time. " " Passing periods help to relieve the mon- otony of the day. It ' s a time to yell and talk to your friends, to get it out of your system before class, " remarked sophomore Carrie Fedele. " 5-minutes isn ' t enough time to go from the band room all the way to a room on the second floor, " Was one comment from sophomore Jason Keller. IS " V r HAPPY BIRTHDAY lockers are often seen in the halls but they ' re not usually celebrating their 252th birthday. 26 — Passing periods MOBBING THE halls before class, students catch up on the latest news. HOPING TO STOP his throat from drying out this student stops to get a drink before class. KISSING IN THE halls is not al- lowed but as you can see stu- dents sometimes do it any- way. HOPING HE WON ' T be late for class, ju- nior Dana Furth- miller sprints to his second period class. Passing periods — 27 Exchange students bring new outlooks This year we had three reminders of our American warmth and hospitality. They were our visiting foreign students Ulrika Fredler, Minna Torrpa and Ernie Hoffman, who all appreciated our com- munity. Ulrika, who stayed with Lynna Mattes and her family, was a very warm senior who fit in just fine with our American style and way of life. In fact, one of her favorite changes was our ability to make her feel welcome. In Sweden when you pass someone they just ignore you; here they smile and say hello. " Most of us knew Ulrika as a part of our girls Varsity volleyball team. She en- joyed our school sports because in her own country there are none. She learned to play volleyball on the team at the YMCA in her hometown. Another of the foreign students was involved in our sports program. Ernie Hoffman participated on the tennis team and others. Apparently he is not considered great in his own country, West Germany, but around here he was exceptionally good. Ernie enjoyed our football games, which he never missed. He came to America with hopes of learn- ing better English, meeting a new culture and widening his outlook on life. " Coming to this country made me see that we don ' t all live the same. " Ernie stayed with the Barber family and probably will have plenty of good stories to tell his friends back in Han- over. Minna Torrpa knew nothing about In- diana before she came. Indiana is a lot different than Finland and in a good way. Minna says that she enjoys our weather and landscape. " Your people are much friendlier and I like the way they talk a lot and ' hang out ' together. " Minna did not expect a lot of what she found and says that she enjoys every- thing about our country. MINNA FOUND A FRIEND in Diane Dy- ben, your typical American teenager. SIGNING NEW FRIENDS ' yearbooks was a tradition that Ulrika says she liked to do. ERNIE FOUND THE time before school a great place to study and catch up on his work. 28 — Foreign Exchange Students r " w " » ERNST HOFFMAN FOUND that classes at New Haven were a lot different than those in Germany. SCHOOL SPIRIT IS something that Minna had plenty of. She enjoyed our sports Pep Sessions. AMERICAN LOCKERS SHOW American tastes. Minna was amused by our typical locker.

The last day of school was very excit- ing for some people not just because they were looking forward to two weeks of va- cation, but because of the program set up for the end of the school day. The school choir was putting on a performance in the auditeria while sounds of rock came from the gym. Many people spend their time at par- ties, shopping or even just sitting around watching television. Junior Mike Wor- rell and sophomore Jack Cooper both re- plied, " We went to a lot of parties. " Al- though there is the thought of parties and being with friends, you ' ve got to re- member your relatives too. Much of time was spent with aunts, uncles and all the cousins. When asked, Greta Childress said, " I went out of town to visit relation and went cross country skiing with my boy- friend. " The thought of school would soon en- ter their minds again, but for now it was a time to relax and enjoy being with fam- ily and friends. CHRISTMAS TIME BRINGS out holiday A BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED Christ spirit in many as Amy Mohr trys to express. mas tree adorns the window of the Critch field ' s home. Christmas Break — 31 Happy Valentine ' s Day New Haven Bulldogs The cafeteria was decorated with streamers; on the walls and hanging from the doorway. There were even hearts on the trash cans for this special occasion. The romantic music was played by A B Sound and most people agreed that they did a pretty good job of setting the right mood for the 1984 NHHS Sweetheart Dance. Over seventy couples attended the dance and the two lucky people who were crowned King and Queen were Joe Zur- buch and Greta Simpson, a junior and a sophomore. Most reactions to the dance were good. " Bob and I had a good time, especially after we found Angi and Craig, " said ju- nior Teresa Gratz. Basically, the dance had a Valentine ' s Day theme of hearts and frills although it wasn ' t an official Cupid ' s Day celebra- tion. The Student Council declared the dance a success. " We didn ' t know for sure if enough couples would show up until the night of the dance, " said representative Ellen Cheviron.

Sweetheart Dance — 33 Get rowdie Bulldogs Pep sessions are good oppor- tunities to show that the pride at New Haven High School is flying high!! With the many class competi- tions and victory cheers, the teams get mentally motivated for the evenings event. New Haven High School recognizes each sport event in a pep session. They are introduced and participate in a scrimmage or in a skit or even talk to the school individually. Each pep session begins with the na- tional anthem and school song played by the band. Guests sometimes appear like singing messengers or balloon-o- grams. Among the many skits performed, one face is commonly seen. This is the face of New Havens one and only Mr. Norman Stephan. With his wild, and bizarre antics, Stormin ' Normin adds spice to the pep sessions. After the fifteen to thirty minute pep session the cheerleaders lead the classes in the traditional two-bits cheer and everyone is dismissed for the day. Most return that evening for the sport event represented in the pep session that day. Pep sessions not only raise the spirit of the players, but motivate the students to support their team. Speculation is that next year, pep sessions will only be held after school. This is due to a possible new state law. Having them after school may be bene- ficial to the quality of the pep sessions since they can be longer in length and more prepared. THROWING TOILET PAPER at pep sessions gets the freshman class into the spirit. SITTING BACK, ENJOYING the enter- tainment are students watching the pep session.

Leslie Spearin ' s ballet and Rob Martelles and friends ' break dancing were different types of dancing, yet they were equally high in quality. On the comedy side, senior Rick Vo- gelwede ' s, unique versions of " The Ex- terminator Man " and " Don ' t It Make My Brown Cow Moo " were exceptionally funny and probably the best comedy performance of the evening. However, many students opted for dance routines. One of the best routines of night was Diane Dyben ' s " He ' s A Dream. " New Haven High is also fortunate to have two rock bands. Highlighting the night were Ravage (Curt Esterline, Chris Barrientos, Dana Furtmiller, and Kevin Webb) and THE BAND (Bron- son Odem, Jon Leonard, John Long, and Dennis Farnbach). The senior skit starred Jon Leonard as the host of " Teacher Feud. " Some of the seniors who starred in this skit were Joel Reed, Bronson Odem, Kevin Bassett, Gary Stroh, Babs Metzger, Sara Lop- shire, Kelly Murphy, Bill Gray, Mark Shaffer, Lisa Lewis, Jeff Hauke, and Diane Dyben as a memorable Mrs. Bea- man.

Showtime — 37 real hoe- down time Sadie Hawkins was a big success this year. Many clubs and classes participat- ed with booths and games. Among the games were the football throw, basket- ball freethrow, putt putt golf and base- ball hitting. The booths included French Clubs garters, which they used as part of the wedding ceremony. Another project was Student Council ' s " pin-on " buttons, in which they took individual pictures of each couple, was a big hit. In another area the Honorary Art Society painted tatoos on arms, legs etc. The FCA club had a jail. " Everyone had a good time, " said Matt Cheviron, who helped with the baseball batting cage. At 8:30 the square dancing started in the gym. Here squares of four couples were formed for some traditional danc- ing from the past.

After the exhausting dancing, Daisy Mae and ' Lil Abner were announced. The winners were Paul Sims and Barb Hoar. In another contest best costume award went to Brian Kurek and Mary Kiebel. Before anyone knew it, Mr. Charles Henke announced that it was time for the girls to pick up their marriage certifi- cates and for the guys to take off run- ning. The girls who captured their dates and brought them back for the marriage ceremony, exchanged rings, ending with a kiss and a slow dance. Leslie Spearin commented, " Every year Sadie Hawkins seems to get better and better and I can ' t wait until next year. " 38 — Sadie Hawkins Sadie Hawkins — 39 FRIENDSHIP is flying high Friendship is returning to school in August knowing that the coming year won ' t be all homework and studies. All of us need that special incentive to get to school every day and enjoy it. Whether our special friend is a rowdy buddy to have a good time with or a de- pendable person that you can tell all your deepest thoughts to, we can safely say that without our friends, school would be unbearable. School has changed since the days when grades ruled over all other activi- ties. There are sports and clubs and mu- sic. All of these activities are friend relat- ed. Would you go out for a team or club if you knew there was no one on it that you could buddy up with? Many girls and guys have discovered a special type of friendship. They have paired off and will spend most of the day with that person. Even couples who date can be called friends and this is one of the best incentives to go to school; to see your boyfriend or girlfriend. While you ' re visiting you may attend a few classes. Our own guidance department recom- mends and even blesses couples and un- derstand the value of having some one to count on. We constantly see friends and lovers supporting each other. Doesn ' t your day go a lot better when you and your friends are together. Two experts on friendship, Kelly Mur- phy and Ellen Felten say, " Friends are fantastic and lots of fun! " Some specific school activities that would be dead without friends are foot- ball games and dances. At every game or dance you can see buddies boogie down to the ground and still have time for those slow dances with a special guy or girl. This year was a very special one. In regard to the rest of your life; remember that old saying, " To have a friend, be a friend. " MICHELLE RAGER, AMY Mohr, and Jill Augustine pass around their yearbooks so that they can get each other ' s signatures. FOOTBALL GAMES ARE an event to be shared with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Suzanne Hanefeld and Todd Snyder beat the cold. 40 — Friendship Friendship — 41 A Celebration is what they had. Much time and money was put into the evening of the prom. The evening before prom took much time also. Girls started getting ready about 3:30, going to the hairdresser, and getting their makeup done. Guys have to go get their tux ' s and the corsages for their dates. Trying to get reservations for dinner was what some guys did before prom. The most popular places seem to be Elegant Farmer, Club Olympia, Holi- day Inn, and the Hungry Hunter. The evening of the prom was perfect, it wasn ' t overwhelmingly hot or cold but just right. A pleasant atmosphere was present- ed at the Fort Wayne Women ' s Club for the elegant evening. The setting of the prom portrayes the movie Gone With the Wind. The sitting and portrait room had old English furniture and a balcony. Adding to the elegance of the evening was the band " La Bov and Beyond " playing a mixture of music to set the pace. The crowning of the King Bob Mar- tin and Queen Rene Boschet was a pleasant sight while everyone looked on as the King and Queen danced to the theme song " Tonight We Celebrate, " sung by junior Leslie Wood and the lead singer of La Bov and Beyond. Many people took a break talking to friends in the dining room. Refresh- ments of punch and cake was served by the sophomore attendants. After-prom was spent by many at Georgetown Bowl followed by break- fast at homes or local restaurants. Many spent the next day at the lake with a group of friends. All in all the expression on many faces reflected a celebration. 42— Prom HERE JUNIOR KEVIN Webb and date fresh- men Wendy Geldien share some words while resting in the sitting room.

The royal evening was a celebration indeed. The date was April 28, the year, 1984. The place, Ft. Wayne Women ' s Club. The occasion, was the 1984 Junior Prom. The setting was a very elegantly decorated building with much charm, which put on a very romantic atmo- sphere. The evening was a very special occa- sion for all, and as the hour rolled along to 10:30 p.m., the excitement began to increase. Trumpets began to blow and all were anxiously awaiting the very special moment which was to be cap- tured by two people. First of all, the senior attendants ap- peared, Sara Lopshire, escorted by Tom Wharton, Kristen Smith, excorted by Craig Ladig, Babette Metzger, escorted by Curt Esterline. Secondly the aisle was filled with the prom court; escorted by Jo Zurbuch, Rene Boschet, came strolling down the aisle, then along came Holly Lobdell, escorted by Jeff Brockmann. Next, was Leslie Spearin along with Jeff Vachon. Closely behind them, appeared Michelle Grooms, es- corted by Dave Rowland, and Mindy Hoffer escorted by Brian Redmon. Last, but not least, Dawn Gorrell and Bob Martin, slowly came walking down the aisle. Yes, the excitement was at its peak, Cyndi Romine, Prom Queen from last year, and Rod Fritcha, Prom King, were just about to give up their reign as they nearly approached the moment when they would crown the 1984 King and Queen. The announcer read the ballot, and the results were: Rene Boschet Queen, and Bob Martin, King. Well, we often wish it could be as dra- matic as that, although even without the trumpets it was still a very special moment, especially for Bob and Rene. The ' 84 Prom was a very special occa- sion and will be a most memorable event in the future. For all who attend- ed, were surely able to take a part in the theme " Tonight We Celebrate. " And indeed, it was a night to do just that. a GREATLY OVERWHELMED, AS just crowned ' 84 Prom Queen GIVING UP THE reign as Prom King, Rod Fritcha crowns junior is junior Rene Boschet.

BOBBIE BROOKS SHOWS that not only the boys wear ties, but also the girls have found them to be fashionable. 46 — Fashion We like to wear fashionable garb Here at New Haven High School ev- eryone likes to be fashionable, some of the fashions of 83 are sweaters with ox- fords under them. Sometimes a knit tie is added on both guys and girls. Lots of girls wear blouses with a big bow tie. Of- ten a sweater is put over a blouse with a bow tie over the sweater. Pin striped jeans are very popular and checkered shoes. Most people prefer designer clothes, such as Calvin Klein, Gloria Vanderbilt, Jordache, Izod, and Vans. Fashions vary in many different ways. SOPHOMORE ANGI HUBER sports a shirt-sweater combination that the de- signers may not have had in mind, but became popular during the school year.

GIVING THEIR FAREWELL perfor- mance are the senior members of the choir, a final yet emotional event. ERNIE HOFFMAN TALKS over the evening ' s events with Greg Thompson and Melinda Ritter. WHO SAID GRADUATES are the most mature? On May 23, 1984, at 7:30 p.m., two hundred and five seniors graduated from New Haven High School. The procession into the gymnasium was lead by Joel Reed and Mark Shaffer class valedictorian and salutatorian, to the song " Pomp and Circumstance " per- formed by the N.H.H.S. band. When all the graduates were seated, Pastor Dan Reed of East Allen County Church of Christ gave the invocation. After the invocation, Master of Cere- monies (Class President) Mark Shaffer introduced Valedictorian Joel Reed who gave the final speech of his high school career. The choir then performed the songs " The Famous Final Scene " and " Old and Wise, " which caught the emotions of many of the seniors especially those in the choir. The commencement address was then given by Mrs. June Holt, a retiring Eng- lish teacher. In her speech she often re- fered to board sayings which she used to get her point across in class and in her speech. After Mrs. Holt finished her speech, which earned her a standing ovation from the senior class, the band played " American Trilogy " a collection of patri- otic songs. The salutatorian, Mark Shaffer, then gave a good-bye speech to the many friends he had made over the past four years. The diplomas were then handed out by Mr. Merle L. Gerig and Mr. Michael N. Lomont. Dr. Michael P. Benway then accepted the class as graduates. The Benediction was given then by Pastor Gordon Smith of New Haven Baptist Church. The seniors then walked out the doors of New Haven never to be a student there again. 50 — Graduation Graduation — 51 52 — Graduation The final scene for Class of ' 84. Entering the gymnasium doors on May 23, 1984, ended something old and began something new for the senior class of " 84. " It ended thirteen years of hard work in school to achieve the goal of graduation. It also ended many friendships because of friends moving on. It began a new life for many on the seniors. For some going to college is the next major step in their lives. One such graduate is Joel Reed, who will attend Harding College in Seacy, Arkansas, in the fall. Still others like Mike Wiedel- man will take their next step by joining the Army or other armed forces. Other graduates, such as Melanie Miller, will join the work force for their next major step in life. As their class motto states, " What ap- pears to be the end is really a new begin- ning. " All of these seniors will in some way have a new beginning to their lives. SENIOR MARK SHAFFER, gave his farewell speech to the class.

Graduation — 53 FINISHING THEIR homework mem- bers of the sophomore class are hard at work. the bell rang to — day at 3:01 e work th Film making comes to class Probably one of the most unique courses offered at New Haven High School is the media oriented class called T.V. Productions. This eighteen week course is utilized as if the T.V. Productions room is an actual television studio. The production room is equipped with some of the best audio vi- sual equipment and supplies around. Most of the students like the idea of " hands on " training by using the equip- ment on a day to day basis. Another advantage to this class is that it seldom gets boring because the students change roles as actors, directors, editors, writers, and control panel operators regu- larly throughout the semester as they work on several projects to be graded on things such as camera work, writing, edit- ing, acting, and final project outcome. Mr. Charles Henke, who has been the instructor for this course for the past two years, is not in unfamiliar surroundings as he has been working in this field since the age of fourteen. When the class was first introduced to New Haven students, it was only offered as a one semester course, but because of the classes popularity with T.V. students, the 1983-84 school year began to offer Ad- vanced T.V. Productions for the first time. STUDENTS GATHER DURING fourth hour after their lunch hoping to catch a glimpse of the highly professional TV news room.

Swing choir has forty-three students, five which are in band; there are one hundred four students in concert choir. The whole choir taped for WKJG channel 33. They also went to several elementary schools to sing, such as Mea- dowbrook, Sunnymede, Central Luth- eran and Highland Terrace. The choir did a spectacular Christmas performance on December 16, the last day of school before Christmas break. When Leslie Spearin was asked if she like choir she replied, " Yes, choir is very good experience for students who like to use their talents. " Then Carol Hilde- brand was asked the same question and she replied, " Yes, I also enjoy being in choir. I ' ve been in music all my life; choir furthers people ' s education in music. " Mr. Henke has done a tremendous job with New Haven High School ' s choir in the past. We all are sure he will keep up his good work.

Many of these classes are considered college prep classes. These classes are designed for those students who wish to pursue their educa- tions. Students begin these classes in their freshmen year. When a student decides to take these classes he should be pre- pared to work hard. Many long hours of homework also go along with college prep classes as Julie Leffel of the sopho- more class seems to think, " I think that teachers forget that there is a difference between helpful work and busy work! " Colleges have begun raising their set requirements for students because the high schools have also. Colleges now demand as a minimum: 4 years of English, science, math, foreign language, and as much social studies that a person can squeeze in. Headed up by the guidance office at New Haven is a guide of college prep classes offered to students every year during class sign-ups. This guide recommends all the Eng- lish, math, science, and foreign language you can get in these 4 years. New Haven, also realizing the computer age, has of- fered a computer class as well as typing. Taking the offered college prep classes is not the only thing college bound stu- dents do. Those juniors and seniors wishing to visit colleges, are allowed two excused days from school to visit the college of their interest. Students are also invited to talk to the college representative from their favor- ite college, when that representative comes to New Haven. Once or twice a year, a college night is held at an area high school. Any student 9-12 interested has the option to go to this informative night. Most importantly, as Mrs. Snyder of the guidance office stresses is, " For a col- lege bound course, students should get a good solid foundation which is very criti- cal for college interested students.

It should. How many times a year did we hear those words? 10,000 it seemed, and for Seniors Joel Reed and Mark Shaffer it was no differ- ent. They were two of our many students who took the PSAT and SAT tests. Joel was ranked first out of his class and scored very well on the tests. He plans on attending Harding University, a private university in Arkansas, to major in Pre- Law, Business, Economics, or Political Science. Mark was ranked second out of his class and scored so well o n the tests he made THE NATIONAL MERIT FINALS! He plans on attending I.U. or the University of Chicago, to major in Pre-Law or Busi- ness. These tests were not like the weekly tests we were used to. There wasn ' t much you could do to prepare or study for these tests. Senior Joel Reed said, " A good way to prepare was to start taking as many academic, college-prep classes as early as you could. " Some suggested courses were a lot of science, math, English, and definite- ly typing! Although it may not have seemed visi- ble, these tests were worth much in value in more ways than one. Two major values were (1) preparation for college and (2) the possibility of earning a scholarship. The PSAT usually taken in October on a Tuesday or Saturday was more or less just a preparatory test for the SAT, but equally important. The SAT usually tak- en in December was made up of verbal and math. It was also three times longer than the PSAT. According to Seniors Joel Reed and Mark Shaffer the best thing to do to pre- pare for the tests the day before was " to get a good night ' s sleep " and do the sam- ple questions in the provided booklet. For those of you taking the tests in the future Reed and Shaffer leave us with their strategies " 1) Don ' t be nervous and 2) Read each question very carefully. " SENIOR JOEL REED carefully prepares to write his name on the test before starting. SENIOR JOEL REED looks over the test first before writing anything on it. THESE ARE JUST some of the many stu- dents who took the PSAT and SAT tests. (P)SAT Test— 63 Child care, foods and sew much more As the year dragged on, so did the classes, and the Home Ec. classes were no exception to the rule. Although at times it seemed the classes would never end, and the day was 100% work, as we looked back we had to admit that we had some enjoyable and valuable times, and that the day wasn ' t all work and no play. Two other Home Ec. classes that real- ly were active this year besdies clothing and Foods were Child Care and Family Relations. They were two classes that could not be judged until they were ex- perienced. One student, senior Lisa Filichia, when asked why she chose the course of Child Care replied, " I thought learning about kids would be fun. " One of the more popular projects in Child Care this year was having children of different ages come in and be observed while they played or did other activities prepared for them. Lisa also planned to use this experience wisely to help children who are in the hospital all alone and scared. Another Home Ec. course that was very popular this year was Family Rela- tions. The class was not only helpful in teaching the student how to deal with marriage but the feelings of their part- ner, and how to make a marriage and family work. It was also an exciting class. One student, senior Debi Arnold said, " This was one class that actually related to you and your feelings. " When another student, senior Kevin Bassett, was asked if Family Relations was a course for everybody to take, he replied, " Definitely, guys as much as girls. " However the other Home Ec. classes, Food and Clothing, couldn ' t be forgot- ten, because they were just as important and exciting as the rest. One student, that found foods very helpful was For- eign Ex change student, Minna Torppa. She replied, " Without the help of Foods, I could never have learned the American way to cook. " Another Foods student that found Foods just as helpful was sophomore Jeff Wixted. When asked how he planned to use his experience he replied, " I plan to be a chef. " Married student, Lisa Woods felt good about taking Foods class. When asked why she answered " All the hard work was worth the good feeling I got when I knew I was cooking good, nutri- tious meals for my husband. " Clothing class was also very helpful to many this year. They learned how to sew anything from torn clothing to their own fashion outfits. Clothing student, senior Laurie Elwood said, " I like to sew and I got the chance to make things I really needed at half the cost of buying them. " When asked if Clothing class was a blow- off or easy this year, Laurie Elwood and fellow senior, Traci Yarian replied, " It was easy if you were a good worker and it was only a blow-off if you made it one.

New members are taught how to march properly, and two nights per week are spent preparing for each upcoming parade. The New Haven Days Parade came quickly. It was soon over, though, and the old along with the new had success- fully marched their first parade of the season. Other parades throughout the sum- mer included one at Hoagland, two in the same day; Woodburn and Churu- busco, and the major one throughout the season, the Three Rivers Parade. This parade being a route of three and one half miles. When parade season was over and a chance for relaxation and rest prevailed, it only prevailed for a short while, for band camp approached quickly. By 2:00 p.m. Monday, August 16, most of the band members had arrived at Camp Potawatomi, a few miles north of Kendallville. In store for the next five days was a long hard week of practicing and prepar- ing for the football season half time shows. As the football players ran onto the field through the tunnel the band had formed, the fifteen minutes slowly ticked away to zero, and they ran back to the locker room. Immediately following, the Bulldog Band assembled on the field in a form of unity and concentration. The stands quieted down, and the starting position was taken. The first song of the show was " El Tigre, " followed by " Tico Tico, " then " Go For It, " and lastly " One Voice. " The song " Go For It " was not only presented with the Highlights and Lanc- ers in front, but also with a solo from trumpet players Chris Wallace and Jeff Thompson. Senior Gary Stroh also presented a solo during " One Voice. " The long hours of work paid off when the show was presented. Basketball season followed football. The band could finally relax and enjoy. During Basketball, the band only forms a block band in the bleachers playing pregame and some half-time shows. The Highlights and Lancers each per- formed a total of four half-time routines. Usually when basketball is over, the band ' s season is over too. This year, the band traveled to Florida over spring break for a four day stay. The trip consisted of the first day spent in the water-fun park, Wet-n- Wild, and then the second day to Disney World and the popular Epcot Center. The third day was to be spent marching in Cypress Gardens, but due to excessive rain at the park, the band stayed at the hotel. However, the sun showed its face, and the day was not a total loss. The last day was a trip to Sea World, and then the band boarded the buses for the long trip home. The band had a fun-filled year and experienced many interesting encoun- ters.

Spo Dogs capture fourth NEIAC championship The New Haven 1983 varsity football team gained its fourth N.E.I.A.C. title in a row. The Bulldogs had a regular season record of seven wins and three losses with five wins and only one loss in con- ference play. The Bulldogs also gained their fourth-straight state play-off berth. The Bulldogs got off to a slow start this season with rival Woodlan, but had to come back against state ranked Snider who was rated fourth in state in AAAA classification. The Dogs lost a tough game 21-13. The Bulldogs were able to win seven of the last eight games insur- ing their place in the conference and state-playoffs. Following two shutouts against De- Kalb and Carroll, one of the key games of the season for the Bulldogs was against Bellmont. With the Bulldogs behind in the first half 13-0, Pat Baumgartner hit Jim Drews for a touchdown with 26 sec- onds left in first half. At half time the score was 13-6 as it still found the Bull- dogs behind. On the third play of the third quarter, Todd Hook ran for a 67 yard touchdown, and his two point conversion gave the Bulldogs the lead with a score of 14-13. Dave Kelty and Drews each intercepted 2 passes with each getting one in the fourth quarter. The next game was a big let down for New Haven against East Noble, 28-0, but they bounced back winning the next four games. As Homecoming rolled around it showed New Haven up against Columbia City. The Bulldogs came out on top by a score of 35-7. The biggest game for the Bulldogs this year was against Homestead at Home- stead ' s field. The Bulldogs scored first to lead at half, 7-0. But the Spartans bounced back in the third quarter to tie the score. The score at the end of the game remained 7-7. % £ JZmSI±S± § 31 V7 ,51 f 80 Row 1: Brian Davis, Bob Martin, Kevin Outcalt, Chris Sharts, Mike Bodine, Terry Miller, Rodd Chin.

In the second overtime Homestead scored first but missed the extra point. For New Ha- ven, Baumgartner hit Hook for a touch- down, but New Haven also missed an extra point. Finally in the third overtime New Haven held Homestead scoreless. Charlie Moore ' s attempted field goal was blocked but Dave Kelty picked it up, and ran in for a touchdown making the score 26-20. The Dogs came out on top. With the next game against Angola, the 13-8 score meant the conference championship, and a spot in the play- offs against Bishop Dwenger. The night came for the Dogs as they went up against the soon to be state champs, Dwenger. It was not a good night for the Bulldogs even though they had opportunities to score. Dwenger overpowered the Dogs, 41-0. At the Awards Banquet, Best Mental Attitude was given to Mark Shaffer and Brian Kurek, while Scott Eckelbarger and Darren Peterson got most improved. John Long got most valuable lineman and Todd Hook got most valuable back. The captains of the ' 83 team were Todd Hook and Don Reimschisel. New Haven had four players in All- Conference this year who were Todd Gremaux — defensive tackle, John Long — offensive tackle, Jeff Vachon — defensive back, and Dave Kelty — kicker.

The Junior Varsity football team, coached by Hank Nietert and Chris His- song, went through the 1983 season with a 5-3 record. " We got off to a slow start but at the end of the season we came out fighting like Bulldogs, " quipped Coach Chris Hissong. Much time, work and effort has to be put into a football team in order for their season to be a success. " We all improved from last year and it made us winners, " replied Tim Smith. Key games this year for the Bulldogs were: Columbia City 20-6, Huntington North 16-8, Homestead 12-0, Harding 41-12 and shutting out Woodlan 21-0. The Bulldogs held the Warriors to only 1 first down the whole game and everyone worked together to develop a whopping win. " The purpose of the J.V. Team is for the coaches to get us ready for varsity, " replied Jamie Trahin. Much stress and hope are some of the things that junior varsity team goes through just hoping for that chance to be on the varsity team. The 1983 Freshmen Football team ended their season with a record of 3 wins and 4 losses. The team was coached by Jake Ruby, who commented on the season, " I feel we have a lot of great kids and feel they will be a very good team in the future. " The Ironmen of the season were Dave Meyers, Kirk Jacquay, Jeff Kintz, Sean McCoy, Rob Norton and Steve Poiry.

Freshman and JV Football — 75 Cheers Cheerleading is not as easy as it looks. Many long hours are put into practicing. Being a cheerleader includes thinking of new ways to get the crowd more spirited, planning pep sessions, decorating the gym or stadium, learning new dances and cheers, and much more. There are six varsity, five junior varsi- ty, and five freshman cheerleaders at New Haven High School. The junior var- sity and varsity are elected in April and practice begins in June. They attend a summer camp in addition to practicing four or five times a week through out the entire summer. Varsity cheerleader, Les- lie Spearin quoted, " Cheerleading is lots of fun and great exercise.

Cheerleading— 77 Boys ' Volleyball finishes strong The 1983 Varsity Boys ' Volleyball team ended their season with three wins and ten losses. They did not have very many successful matches but Darryl Springer said, " Our best game was against Harding, October third. We played together as a team. " The Bulldogs went to state at West- ville, and they were defeated by Hebron in their first game. However, they won their next two games against Westville and Harding. In playoffs the ' Dogs lost to the Kouts High School. The team as a whole improved this year and some individuals were out- standing in their performances. Coach Mark Novak said, " I think that our most successful players were Joe Zurbuch, John Byerly, Darryll Springer, and Russell Steiner. " Russell Steiner supported the team with his outstanding serving ability. The Junior Varsity record was two wins and two losses. The season mixed with some successes but also some disap- pointments such as what Larry Higgin- botham called their toughest match. " It was against Woodlan. We lost the first game, won the second, and in the third the score was 15-14 and they came back and beat us by two points.

Inexperience didn ' t hamper the ' Dogs ' determination The team commitment was what led the Lady Bulldogs to a record of 17-8 in the regular season and second place at sectionals. The team got off to a quick start against Snider beating them in three games. After that win, they had an uphill struggle. They lost five of the next six games. " The team lacked experience and also playing time. They struggled early but finally put things together half-way through the season and became really competitive, " commented Coach Dennis Johnson. What the team lacked in experience they made up for in sheer determination. They were determined to work hard and improve their skills. These girls were willing to stay long after practice should have been finished. This determination was what helped the team win ten of its next seventeen games and finished as runners-up in the Harding Invitational Tournament. This determination also carried over to the sectionals where they were defeated in the finals by Luers, the defending cham- pions. The team was led by two very hard working co-captains, LeAnn Tatman and Sara Lopshire who summed up the season by saying, " I ' m really happy about our season. We were friends throughout it; that ' s what got us through the rough times. That means more to me than any award we could have received. " When the NEIAC team picks came out the Bulldogs were a little disappoint- ed to have only one player, Sara Lop- shire, make first team and three players, Babette Metzger, LeAnn Tatman, and Kristen Smith, to make second team. The Junior Varsity ended their season with a 5-9 record. The teams co-captains were Lori Dager and Laura Rhoades, both sophomores. Laura ' s comment about the team was, " Though our record may not show it, we all worked really hard. " The team was coached by Miss Susan Weimer, a new gym teacher at New Ha- ven. Miss Weimer added, " Inexperi- enced as we were, we did well against the tougher, more experienced teams. " LINDA GABET AND Sara Lopshire wait to react to the next play.

Curt Esterline the number one player and team captain with a record of 7-9 replied, " We did a fairly good job for being inexperienced; also we had two freshmen added to the varsity team whose opponents took advantage of them because they were new. " The number two singles player was Eric Monesmith with a record of 4-6. This year the tennis team had a Ger- man exchange student, Ernie Hoffman, who worked his way to third best player with a record of 10-6. The team will be losing two seniors, Curt Esterline, and Ernie Hoffman. The team also had three new freshmen this year. They were Matt Zurbuch, Mark Myers, and Rick Laurent. The number one doubles were Tony Myers and Dan Kloss. Matt Zurbuch, and Mark Myers were number two. " The easiest team to beat was South Adams, and the toughest teams we played were Bishop Luers, and Home- stead, " commented Matt Zurbuch. " After the season got going the players started playing a lot better, " replied Sam Mclnturff, the team ' s coach. At the banquet, awards were given to Curt Esterline for best attitude and for best knee juggler, Ernie Hoffman for best record, Matt Zurbuch for most im- proved, and Tony Meyers for best jug- gler.

The New Haven Cross Country Team has been growing in number the last few years. With more runners the team is able to grow in experience as well as per- formance. The team had a good season this year. They reached their goal which they es- tablished early in the season, of making it to the regionals. They not only made it to the Regionals but defeated archrival Harding in the process. This definitely marked a season highlight for the team. The team also finished fifth in the con- ference. " We should be a tough team next year as we mainly consisted of soph- omores this year, " quoted Coach Hart- man. This is his second year coaching the cross country team. At the end of the season a banquet is held. Here the players receive awards. These awards were voted on by the other teammates. This year Jeff Murphy was awarded most valuable runner. He has been running for the bulldogs for 5 years, counting his Jr. High years. Chris Neher was awarded Best Mental Attitude, and Most Improved Runner went to Kevin Bruick. There will be five graduating from the team this year, but with the growing in- terest in cross country New Haven should have an excellent cross country team next year.

Bulldog players gain valuable experience The New Haven Varsity Basketball team began the year with a basically new team and only two returning letterman. The season wasn ' t so successful as the team would have liked it to have been, but the determined team kept practicing. The amount of fouls and turnovers contribut- ed to the loss of many games, although New Haven usually was in the game until the opposition made a comeback to win in the last quarter. One of the highlights of the season was the upset against Bellmont. New Haven was trailing by one point in the final sec- onds of the fourth quarter. Junior Mark Jordan went up for a basket but was fouled. He made both of his shots and the Bulldogs won 63-62. Mark was on J.V. at the beginning of the year and worked his way up to a varsity starter. The team this year was made up of three sophomores, six juniors, and two seniors. " This season we had a lot of un- derclassmen that gained valuable exper- ience, so we ' re looking forward to a good season next year, " commented returning letterman John Byerly.

Many players spend hours upon hours during the summer trying to improve their skills. The play- ers also attend camps geared specifically to basketball techniques. A new member to the Bulldog team this year was Kary Walker. Walker had the most assists (55) this year and the best percentage of freethrows (80% ). He also led the Bulldogs in scoring through- out the year and was the Most Valuable Player. Sophomore Sean McArdle had the most rebounds this year. He also re- ceived Honorable Mention All-Section- al. McArdle was a varsity starter the whole season and should be looking for- ward to a successful high school career in basketball.

J.V.-Frosh Basketball— 91 Girls ' Record Season Due to Teamwork, Kamikaze Defense In her fourth season as head coach of the Lady Bulldogs, Kim Stairs lead her team to a history-making season, with a final record of 13-7. The team started off the season with three wins in a row against Wayne, Leo, and Luers. In the fourth game they were defeated by 11th ranked DeKalb the final score was 39-33. But the team came back fighting and added two more wins to their record against Huntington North and Homestead. Unfortunately they couldn ' t keep the winning streak going and were beaten by Woodlan and Bellmont. But the Bulldogs ' " Kamikaze " defense pulled them through and they won the next three games in a row, one of which was against Carroll.

In the first game of the sectional, New Haven beat Harding by a score of 42-35, which lead them to the final against Heri- tage, the defending state champions. They were defeated in the final by them with a score of 48-38. The team was lead by three seniors Ju- lie Sweet, Sara Lopshire, and Jill St. Pe- ters, Stairs said, " I have a great deal of respect for Jill, Sara, and Julie because they are partially responsible for the growing success of our program. I have coached Julie and Sara for four years at the varsity level and they know what it is like to progress from 3-15 in their fresh- man season to a 13-7 senior season. " Julie Sweet and Jenni Fultz finished their seasons on positive notes as they were elected to the NEIAC All-Confer- ence team. Senior captain Julie Sweet summed up the season by saying, " I think that the 1983-84 season was the best season ever for New Haven Girls ' Basketball. The four years that I have played with the team have been filled with a lot of great memories, but I know that this year ' s team will always stick in my mind as one that stuck together and played as a ' whole team ' out on the court. As a senior, I set a lot of goals for myself this year and with- out the great people on the team, they never could have been achieved.

Since he start- ed coaching at New Haven he has never had a losing season. Their season got off to a shaky start, losing seven of their first ten games. The girls had that fighting Bulldog spirit and won the next five games in a row, two of which were against North Side. They then lost a hard fought battle against Co- lumbia City, but they finished their sea- son with two wins. The school for the first time sponsored a holiday tournament in which Garrett, Luers, North Side, and New Haven par- ticipated. The tournament was won by the Lady Bulldogs who defeated Garrett in the first game and North Side in the final. Captain Lori Dager summed up the season by saying, " We worked hard and tried to act as a team and that ' s what pulled us through the rough times. " The girls ' basketball program was ex- panded this year to include a freshman squad. Which was coached by Miss Su- san Weimer, a new teacher at New Ha- ven. Miss Weimer ' s comment about the season was, " Even though we didn ' t win many games, we learned a lot and next year we ' ll be more apt to win. Everyone got to play and that was the main thing. " Melissa Davis said, " I had fun and learned a lot, and that ' s more important than winning. " JV Basketball Record NH OPP 21 Wayne 28 38 Leo 07 25 Luers 29 26 DeKalb 31 24 Hunt.

The team over- came problems of illness and injury to be- come very competitive. However, the level of competition was difficult, with the Bull- dogs facing some of the top area and state teams. The team ' s best matches were wins against state-ranked Concordia by a score 28-26 and Harding 31-30. They also did well in the Conference meet finishing third. This was especially rewarding since the Bulldogs were picked and seeded to finish sixth. Senior Chris Neher, who wrestled 132, was the N.E.I.A.C. champion for his weight class. He also won the following awards: Hustler of the year, Leadership award, Best Mental Attitude award, and Most Valuable Wrestler. Neher finished the season with a 23-3-1 record, including three records, one for most wins in a career by an NHHS wrestler, another for most pins in one season, the third for most ca- reer pins.

Senior Paul Hoogenboom was the 167 weight class champion in Sectional. Coach Hostetler commented, " I feel we could have improved a lot on our record, but we had to use inexperienced wrestlers on four different match occasions, due to regular varsity people being out of the line-up. The J. V. team improved throughout the season but, " They must gain time on the mat and strength, " commented Hostetler. The freshmen wrestlers had a very good individual match record, " This group of wrestlers has a great deal of ability and, with work, could develop into some really fine prospects, " stated Mr. Hostetler.

Wrestling— 97 -Gymnastics WHILE WALKING ON solid ground is diffi- cult for some, sophomore Sectional champ, Sarah Roller, makes walking the four inch beam look easy. Sarah concentrates on the highly difficult event in one of her all- around performance areas. ONE OF THE most difficult parts of gym- nastics is the waiting around for the per- formance. Tension can build very easily as the contestant imagines what can go wrong. Here several performers show their looks of concern.

Freshman Sheila Isenbarger works to im- press the judges during the floor routine. JUNIOR BARB HOAR competed on the op- tional (varsity) level in the vault through- out the season. Speed and height become important in capturing the judges approv- al. Barb uses the horse to gain the height necessary to complete her jump properly. New Haven captured its first sectional champion when sophomore Sarah Roller walked away with the all-around cham- pionship. " I really didn ' t expect to win, but I had a good day, " commented Roller. " It was a nice surprise! " This year ' s optional (varsity) team showed steady improvement throughout the season. The team was led by Roller in the all-around, but also had other strong performers. Junior Teresa Gratz and sophomore Jill Hanefeld also competed in the all-around on the optional level. Sophomore Angi Huber was an op- tional competitor in the floor, beam, and bars while junior Barb Hoar concentrat- ed her efforts on the optional vault. Gymnastic expertise takes time to de- velop. In-season is usually not enough time to gain the needed skills. " I began when I was seven, " noted Roller. " By the time that I was in junior high, I was working on gymnastics for four hours per day, four days per week. " That type of effort is what it takes to become a sectional champion.

The Bulldogs also beat the 3rd ranked Elmhurst by a score of 1-0, as senior Darren Peterson pitched a no hitter earning another win.

The team had over- powering wins over Bishop Luers 83-18, and Leo 89-21. The Bulldogs tied for fifth in Section- al. Linda Gabet came in second in the shot put while Ellen Cheviron earned third. Barb Hoar took second in the 100- meter dash and third in the two hundred event. The track team had a letdown this year, because of injuries. One such casu- alty happened to Jill Hanefild, who had qualified to go onto Sectionals but was unable to compete because of an injury to her knee. Many records were broken this year during the track season; the shotput re- cord was broken twice, the first by Linda Gabet then again by Ellen Cheviron who now holds the record at 39 feet, 7 V2 inches. The team was coached by Bud May, Dave Mulligan, and Sue Carnes. Sue Carnes was a new addition to the team this year, who gave much encouragement to the team. When asked how she felt about their season Angie Huber com- mented, " Considering we had a young team we did well. " The track team was very fortunate this year as they had two people qualify- ing for state — Barb Hoar in the 100 me- ter dash, and Linda Gabet in the shot put. For Barb, this was her second straight trip to the State meet. She was also con- ference champ in the 100 and 200 meter dashes.

" So many people have surely said this at one point in their lives. At NHHS difference is a state of being. Everyone has his or her own gaols, dreams, and desires. And many students are working toward them. Styles may be the same, but personalities are always unique. Each person is an individual. And each individual is special. At NHHS students enjoy experssing their individuality, whether it be singing, building, dancing, writing, or just plain being friendly. Many special people enjoy helping others through volunteer work such as a volunteer fireman or a Candy Striper. Throughout the year, students have grown to know one an- The persons attending NHHS participate in a number of activities that show an outstanding interest in keeping NHHS ' s pride flowing high, like choir, sports, clubs, and social groups such as, SARD, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Campus Life. Every year new people will enter the school with new ideas and expectations but each year NHHS will be sure to be a school of well kept pride! People— 109 Akins - Compton New Haven Soccer Club Clubs are thought of as non-demand- ing but fun. This is not the case for a very prosperous club — the soccer team. Soc- cer is one sport where running and being conditioned is the key. During an aver- age game, a player can cover a couple of miles, so in practice the team runs about three to four times farther for each game. Even with all the work, soccer is quite the fulfilling game. There are the goals, the great saves by the goalie, and well executed slide tackles to give that touch of thrill to the game. Some of the leaders on the team are Dave Kelty, Charlie Moore, and Andy Police. Dave, the captain, and two others have been at the game since the fourth and fifth grades at St. Johns. With all the experience they have, it ' s no wonder that they are looked up to to imitate and goof off with. Soccer can not be a serious game at all times or the tempers of the players would be flaring. Dave, Charlie, and Andy are support- ed by a crew of younger and newer play- ers. There are other seniors who haven ' t been around long, juniors, sophomores, and freshmen who all with their effort and hustle. Danny Moore, a graduate from NHHS in 1982 is the coach. Dan was an out- standing soccer player himself on some of the best teams of the past few years. Dan is helped by a manager statistician, Melanie Miller.

Just when you might think that senior Bulldogs can ' t conjure up any ideas to break up the monotony of the tedious task of school-going— It ' s Beach Day!! Yes, the one day of the year that sen- iors can deck out in some of their aquat- ic-type threads and tear up the beach- in the privacy of their very own school. Towels were spread, frisbees were tossed, and suntan oil was rubbed as the upper classmen bopped to the beat of the Beach Boys, Stray Cats, and Jan and Dean— (at least during passing period).

Seniors — 113 Ha rising - Lyons Senior honors As students look into the future, many see themselves in nice homes and with families. Well before they can get there, they must have money. In order to earn good livings, the prop- er mental training must be obtained thro ugh good educational habits. Over the years New Haven has produced many outstanding people in the field of academics. These outstanding graduates have gone ahead to become business and civic leaders. Each year the school does its best to honor those with high academic achieve- ment, which is very important, as this self discipline translates into desirable characteristics in the work world. At the year end Honors Assembly, these outstanding students in the aca- demic areas are honored by the commu- nity and school.

Although you had to be 17 years of age, we still had a large number of students and faculty participate. 108 members student body and faculty donated a pint each. Upon entering room A114 thoughts flew threw your head, " Why did I sign up for this? " " Why me? " After getting up the nerve, you are asked to fill out a questionnaire about yourself. Then you are sent to a nurse and she prickles your ear to test your blood. After the prickling you are sent to a have your temperature checked. Then it was time to pig out on cookies and orange juice. Then for the big task, they wanted to take your blood . . . and they did!

Dress-up days, class float preparation, window painting, and class chains provided an activity filled week for the students of NHHS. The five dress-up days gave students a chance to show their school spirit. The days went as follows: Western Day, Fifties Day, Dress-up Day, Sweats Day, and Purple and Gold Day. Although many stu dents dressed accordingly for the five days, senior Sheri Gongaware had this to say, " I was disappointed to see that more people didn ' t dress up. " Following in the footsteps of preceding years, a " Mr. Mus- cle " contest was once again held. Eight pictures were posted and students voted for their choice with pennies. By a wide- spread margin, Charlie Moore was Mr. Muscle of 1983. Students from all four classes had a chance to show their class unity. One way to do this was to buy a strip of paper to form a chain. Freshmen formed a green chain, sophomores a gold chain, juniors a purple chain, and the seniors a white chain. The seniors won the competition with their chain reach- ing almost one tenth of a mile. Each class also joined in unity to prepare their class floats. About two weeks before the homecoming parade, students began organizing their themes, where to build the float, the supplies needed, and when to build the float. The sophomores came in first place with the seniors follow- ing close behind for a second place win. Students chipped in to prepare the floats not only having fun, but feeling a sense of accomplishment. " It was fun getting together with all my friends. It felt good to know I helped with the winning float. Overall it was hectic, but I had a lot of fun, " said sophomore Ellen Felten. Throughout New Haven, windows were decorated relating to Homecoming. The windows at Linclon Park Plaza were judged and members of the French Club, Gwen Sovine and Connie Leamon, won the fifty dollar prize. Their winning slo- gan was, " Bulldogs Bite the Eagle.

These students are added to the many others already looking for a job. Many of these students applied at the fast food restaurants in the area such as Wendy ' s, McDonalds ' , Pizza Hut or Rax ' s. The fast food restaurants aren ' t very prom- ising though, since they have hired all the workers they need and many more are wait- ing in line. Some students are able to get jobs through their parents or friends. Students often work at their parent ' s place of em- ployment doing odd jobs such as typing, answering phones, filing or cleaning. Friends are also helpful in getting jobs. Whenever an opening appears, a friend is the first to volunteer names. There are also many other areas of work that students get into: flower shops, secre- tarial work and clothing stores are just a few. Fitting a job into some schedules is often difficult. " When you get a job either your school work or your social life can suffer, " said junior Mindy Hoffer, " so you have to learn how to use your time wisely.

Although the performances during halftime at the basketball games appear to be more fun than work, much rehears- al and practice goes into each of the per- formances. The Highlights practiced two and sometimes three times a week preparing for each routine. The same schedule of hard work and practice applied to the Lancers. Both corps performed a total of four halftime shows, each show being differ- ent from the preceeding one. As the Highlights opened their season, they started by performing a " physical " routine to Irene Cara ' s popular " Flash- dance. " They then danced a medley to Michael Jackson ' s " Beat It " and " Thrill- er. " The season progressed and the third show was to the sound of the band ' s ver- sion of the Charleston. The Highlights ended their season with a routine per- formed with top hats and bow ties. The Lancers, too, had a busy season. Their first show was performed to the sound of " Sirocco, " a song played by the band. The second to the " Eye of the Ti- ger " sang by Survivor. Then the theme song from the movie Staying Alive, " Far from Over, " was the third song featured in their third show. The Lancers closed their season with a performance to the band ' s song, " One Voice. " The Lancers and Highlights worked hard to please the audiences of each show. The applause and great response was a consolation for the long hours of rehearsals. SENIOR BARB CLAUS stretches out, which is essential in order to perform a routine to the fullest.

Out of the 256 students in the junior class, these ten people had the highest academic status of the class. First place Mike McKinley had this to say when asked about his top position, " I am proud that I have been able to make it to the top of my class, and I hope that I have set a good example for others to follow. " McKinley was not honored only with the top spot, he also qualified for an approximately year long scholarship trip to Ger- many. Out of 1,500 students who applied for the scholarships, 200 were chosen, including only five from Indiana. This scholarship program includes predeparture orientation and language training, meetings with the government officials, trips to Washington, Bonn and Berlin, seminars on comparative government, and placement with a specially selected German family. " I ' m expecting it to be a real challenge. It will be tough because of language and culture differences. But all the same, it will be very exciting and extremely educating, " stated McKinley.

Everyone exper- iences it. Everyone has to go through it. As many people believe or think, the sopho- more year is rather dull because it is right between freshmen and seniors. As a sophomore one does not experience too many exciting things. The freshman class is new; therefore the freshmen class is excited about the unknown. The juniors have the Prom to look forward to, and the seniors are anxious about graduation. " I think last year was a lot more fun than this year, " replied Jack Cooper. The thrill of riding the bus to and from school also adds enjoyment to the life of a sophomore. While the juniors and seniors and a few sophomores are able to drive to TAKING A TEST is Randy Chin in biology, an academic class which many sophomores take. school, the majority are found riding the buses. Academically the sophomore year seems to be a lot harder than the freshman year. Sophomores usually have to start preparing for college, so the classes they take are mainly all academic. Many sophomores take biology and geometry as their college prep courses. Sophomore Lisa Momper said, " This year is a lot harder I think, be- cause you have to take a lot more academic classes than last year. " Many sophomores believe they will never live through their sophomore year, but in reality it seems to go by quicker than they really expect.

You ' re tired, scared and nervous. You stay up late study- ing and memorizing the braking distance or when to signal and when not to. Your ner- vousness causes you to study very hard to memorize the signs, because missing one means failure of the license test. As your mother or father is driving you to the License Bureau a feeling of anxiety and fear rises in your stomach. You step up; it ' s now your turn; to take the eye sight test, then the sign and question test, the " big- gie. " The questions are thought out and the correct answer, you hope, is selected. The test is now finished and the lady grades it. You pass and you feel such relief. Then they take the picture. They say, " Look at the red light.

Their money-making project took much time and effort. It took effort for the class officers to pick a product to sell, Christmas ornaments. They also had to organize the whole mar- keting project. It took a large effort on the part of the class members to sell the orna- ments. An additional problem arose when the company could not fill the order for over five hundred ornaments, and the class offi- cers had to spend their free time passing out the substitutes for the missing product and collecting money. However, when all the money was finally collected, the class had made about $1,200. This money collected will go for the Junior Prom and other such events. Ellen Felten, class secretary, summed up the project by saying, " We had a few prob- lems, but in the end they all worked out.

Freshman year does not offer a lot of classes, but it does offer more than ever before. After taking the re- quired classes: P.E., reading and orienta- tion, literature and grammar, and health, there are three time slots to fill with electives of your choice. Almost all freshmen will take a foreign language, French being the most popu- lar. Depending on the future plans of the student he or she will take algebra at the basic level or at the more challenging academic level. Less popular choices include science and business. Many freshmen girls are interested in foods and clothing. .Those who want to get involved in school activi- ties will take journalism or publications, working on the newspaper or yearbook. If they are interested in music, choir and band are possibilities. Also, there are many sports and clubs at NHHS that are popular with active frosh. PHYSICAL " " EDUCATION is a required clajMlUMi ' eshmen. Many say they wouldn ' t take it if they didn ' t have to.

Most freshman have to ride the bus to school and home. Some however, may get a ride from older friends or a parent. Some disadvantages to riding the bus are having many people riding with you and not being able to find a seat, and you finally do you have to sit with two or three other people. If you wake up late in the morning you have to rush to make it on time to catch the bus. When asked how she felt about riding the bus Sherri Slotterback said, " I hate it! I hate all the little kids because they are always screaming and throwing things. " Some advantages of the bus are, you don ' t have to walk home in the rain or snow. You can also sit with all your friends and help each other with your homework. If you have a friend that takes you to school you might have to give them gas money, so riding the bus isn ' t so bad after all. AFTER A DAY of studying Kent Hill is ready to go home. A COMMON THING for freshmen is goofing around before the bus leaves.

Why is this? Well in the beginning it might have been because they were new to the school and needed something to make them feel se- cure. Most kids can chew gum at home so when chewing it at school it makes them feel right at home. Another reason might be that at the schools that feed into the high school gum chewing is not allowed. Therefore, everyone is excited about the rule so they chew, chew, chew. The way some people chew gum is dis- gusting. But basically everyone who chews gum fits into one of three categor- ies: First — the obnoxious chewer— this person is not hard to spot. Just follow the Haven noise. Second — creative chewers — these are the ones that see how far they can stretch it before it breaks. Third — we have the shy chewers — you can ' t even tell they have gum. Favorite flavors ranged from regular to blueberry to watermelon. WHEN IN NEED there ' s always some near just look under the desk there ' s probably some here.

Eighth to ninth grade is a big step to take. Many classes are harder, meet for a longer period of time, and allow less time to study. These students have studied hard on their own time to have excellent grades. When asked about her increased stud- ies, number one student Brenda Ren- ninger commented, " Yes, I have a lot of difficult classes this year, but I make time for going out. " When Sheryl Robinson was asked if this year seems harder than last year, she said, " No, it was easier, but if I wou ld have studied more I probably could have gotten better grades. " When asked if she thought she de- served to be in the position number four, Sharon Hathaway said, " Yes, but I think I could have done better. " Much credit should be given to these students for their outstanding grades.

CHRIS SWENSON discusses her Latin activities with Mr. Wright during JCL Week. NHHS will miss " MOM " Holt ' s way Mrs. June Holt will be retiring this from New Haven. Mrs. Holt has been teaching for twenty years and has worked at New Haven for eighteen. " I have enjoyed teach- ing and working with students, and I will miss you all. " This year Mrs. Holt was cho- sen for most involved teacher. She also won the Paul Goeglein award for involvement in New Haven teaching and activities. Mrs. Holt really enjoys students and has taught at not only New Haven but also at Wilkinson High School, Wilkinson IN. " My personal goals were to be a good teacher, to reach as many students as possi- ble. I ' ve tried to do this by being under- standing, patient, and prepared and also by having a good sense of humor. " She also in her spare time enjoys reading, cooking, traveling, canoeing, and playing with her grand children. 146 — Teachers LCHERS teachers teachers Teacher award recognizes Wright Tod Wright a teacher here at New Haven High School was selected teacher of the year by the East Allen County School Board. Wright the Latin and mythology teacher is in his twentieth year of teaching and in his fifteenth year here at New Haven. Be- sides New Haven he has also taught at Southwood Jr.-Sr. High School in Wabash County. As his hobbies he enjoys racquet- ball, bicycling, and also traveling. His goals are to be better and to develop his patience and the understanding of human behavior, and also to know that he can better meet the needs of the young people who have elected to learn about Latin and Roman peoples way of life. " I really like being at New Haven because of the people. New Haven students like to learn foreign lan- guages; this fact makes my job a lot more fun and a lot easier, " quoted Wright. Wright has never been mar- ried, which in turn gives him more time to work with students. " This summer I plan to paint the trim on my house, do some gardening, and travel in Western Europe. I also plan to work ahead for the first year Latin classes next year. " Coleen Snyder, Guidance Counselor, Honor Society Donald Stebing, Typing 1-3, Shrthd. 1 2 Norman Stephan, Typ. 1 2, Cons.

Here, players rest before the game. Clubs ART CLUB OFFERS time for learning new techniques and ideas. Here, junior Allen Etter, senior Brent Messman, and Art teacher Mrs. Clevenger join to make a stretch canvas. Latin, French, Spanisl 5e n. Science and Drama. These are only a few of the clubs offered at NHHS. In actuality, there are 17 active clubs. Students spend much of their free time participating in club activities, Clubs offer a time away from dull or boring everyday education. Yet, the clubs offer a variety of ways to learn. For instance, persons in Science Club see movies dealing with sci- ence and they also participate in other activities in relation to the subject. Much pride is displayed in club activities. Along with the learning aspect, club members participate in activities developed for purely fun times, such as, the building of floats for Homecoming parties, or in the case of Drama club, productions. Many friendships and possibly romances develop within clubs. And, above all, a closeness develops between its mem- bers. Clubs offer time for individuals to share new ideas and experiences. Clubs truly are a part of NHHS as well as a part of the participating individual ' s life. Foreign languages have fun cultures This year ' s foreign language clubs worked very hard in raising money and having a good time also. The clubs are noticed by the school in such happenings as, homecoming and money raising. The French Club sold some candy, as normal, and they also did a fine job on supplying Sadie Hawkins couples with their garters for the dance. The club also tried to sell something a little special this year; it was their French Tart. These lit- tle pie-like desserts were very good. The French Club ended up their year with actual French food from Cafe Johnelle. This club took first place in the Home- coming parade for the second year in a row in the foreign language division. The German Club started their year out with a trip to Frankenmuth, Michi- gan. Many of the members of the club enjoyed this trip very much because the distance of traveling was like a vacation. Leah Taylor said, " I enjoyed German Club very much this year, and the people are fun to work with. " Latin and Spanish Clubs had much of the successes of the other foreign lan- guage clubs. The Latin Club held an- other very successful and colorful Latin Week. To celebrate the language many students wore togas in the club. Foreign language clubs are not just the language itself. These clubs are a cultur- al learning experience as well, which is good for all the members as a whole. Sophomore Julie Leffel summed up her feelings well by saying, " It takes a lot of work and team effort. " THE GERMAN FLOAT for 1983 represent- ed a mean bulldog stomping over the ea- gles.

DURING LONG ALL day meets, both Speech and Debate Clubs have to find something good to eat for lunch such as Rik Yingling does. BEHIND THE SCENES of the musical, many of the performers find fun and work in putting on make up and freckles as soph- omores Diana Henry shows. Bulldogs give all Drama Club was very active and busy this year. They put on two major produc- tions which were both very successful. The first of these major productions was a very dramatic and well put togeth- er story. This story is one which we are all very familiar with, it is, " Diary of Anne Frank. " The play itself had a small cast, but certainly was not done small. Once again, Diana Henry played the leading role and did an excellent job of playing Anne Frank. Five seniors also headlined the play. These five were, Joel Reed, Lori Fedele, Denise Burnham, Kevin Bassett, and Gary Stroh. The rest of the cast was equally impressive, which made this play a great one to go see. Juniors in the play were, Leslie Wood, Rik Yingling, and Brian Harper. Sophomores were Julie Leffel, Diana Henry, and Carrie Fedele, who was the student director for this play. The musical this year was great fun for everyone. The musical was, " You ' re a Good Man Charlie Brown. " Senior Joel Reed played that popular dog of the comic strip world, Snoopy. Many people really enjoyed the famous number, " Suppertime. " The singing in this production was really enjoyable to listen too. Leslie Wood played the grouchy Lucy role. Les- lie did a wonderful job as always. A large cast made up Charlie Brown, and the outcome was a well-done production. Speech Team was coached by Mr. Eller once again. The team did a good job this year. NHHS truly had a great year in speech. Two members, Gary Stroh and Diana Henry went to state. Debate had a well-organized club this year also. New Haven has much to be proud of with these three clubs on their side. Drama Club— 153 JK5r Honorary Art Society 1st: D. Baleda, K. Teter, D. Vondran, S. Clevenger, P. Kage.

FOR AN HONOR Society get together sen- ior Lori Fedele looks over things to make sure everything is correct. HERE IS A sight that most Student Coun- cils are used to. Eric Monesmith, Brian Koehlinger, and Todd Snyder relaxing dur- ing one of the meeti ngs. Groups determined to start new things Student Council was basically a coun- cil chosen by the student body to repre- sent the school during the year. The Stu- dent Council did just that very well this year. Joel Reed, Student Council Presi- dent, did the best job anyone could ex- pect by keeping things running smoothly and yet very organized. The year started out with Homecom- ing. Many students didn ' t realize that our Student Council handles the entire Homecoming and created the entire event. This year also it enforced something called SADD. SADD means Students Against Drunk Driving, which ended up being very successful. Students started realizing that it is their own peers that are against drinking, not for society rea- sons, but for the simple fact it can and does kill. The Council enforced this by posters in the halls, announcements, pic- tures, and big showcases toward the end of the year. The Christmas Can Drive went very well with the help of the entire student body. Over 5000 cans were collected to make the needy have a happy Christmas also. Student Council also decided to final- ly spice our gym a bit. The council did something new by holding a contest to decorate our gym. The student body vot- ed on their favorite design by a fellow classmate for the gym. Allen Etter won their votes and also won for himself 50 dollars because of it. Sophomore, Kevin Brueck commented about the contest, " I was happy to see the whole student body getting involved in the same interest for a change and being sincere about their choice, it was really fun. " Lifting spirits was also done by the council. Anti-Apathy week was held. At first the students didn ' t seem to show any interest during the announcements telling that it was coming. Then the week did arrive. Participation from the school ended out to be fantastic. For the most part every student seemed to be very happy about the week. The week ended out with a pep session honoring the hon- or roll students. This was a very pleasant switch for the academic students. Soph- omore Misty Baker stated, " It was a good feeling having the whole school to- gether in spirit, and seeing the students dressed up was a fun switch from every day; I really enjoyed it. " There was much more our student Council did during the year. It was all because people decided to work hard to- gether not to make it just another ordi- nary Student Council year, but one that had new and exciting things in it as well. The Honorary Art Society was quite active this past year developing new ideas and modifying old ones. To be eli- gible for the club you must have had a B — or better average by the end of the first nine weeks. Once the club was established they started out by putting a float in the Homecoming Parade. The whole club did well in preparing for that. St. Francis College was attended quite often by club members for the work- shops there. The Society did the prom backdrop and they also did the Sadie Hawkins backdrop for the students. During the Sadie Hawkins Dance they had a tatoo booth for the couples of the dance. For the end of the year the Society had a scholarship for the most talented sen- ior in certain areas of art. The following were, art, music, film, dance, photogra- phy, drama, and writing. No real high or super grade point average was required for this certain scholarship which made it special. The Honor Society held a special din- ner for the members which turned out to be quite enjoyable.

This is a very light statement, simply because the do much more than the mere word " help " . The girls split up and each take certain track and field events to keep re- cords of. The girls measure thing, record, announce, and many times help coaches and runners stay sane during the chaos of a track meet. Sophomore Jenny Smith commented, " It is a fun and helpful way to become closer to the team. " Wrestlerettes are girls who keep wres- tling stats, records, and awards in order. The girls encourage spirit and help the wrestlers and coaches cope with every- thing at once during a wrestling meet. Sophomore Tina Thompson, president of wrestlerettes, states, " I enjoy the sport and the participants are friendly and helpful also. " Batgirls are hard to find these days, but statgirls, on the other hand, are not. These girls that help keep stats and fig- ures did a very fine job according to Coach Huml. Lori Dager heads up the crew of statkeepers. Sophomore Mistina Baker states, " I enjoy watching the games and at the same time being in- volved in knowing what is what. " FCA is a group of athletes that meet at certain members homes for discussions. Many members find it ' s a good way to help them cope with problems. It is also a better way to be accustomed to " normal " surroundings. Senior Babs Metzger said, " I have always enjoyed the happy sur- roundings that go along with FCA ever since I ' ve been a member. " Olympians Batgirls — 157 Writing, editing bowling, praying Do you ever wonder what class is the Herald, school newspaper, well that is the class of Journalism. Journalism puts out a paper every two weeks. Senior LeAnn Tatman states her opinion on Journalism, " It is a worth while class; it ' s hard but Mr. Kirktom makes it fun. " Journalism has done a good job of put- ting the paper out every two weeks. Another club is Campus Life. Campus Life is a club that meets every Monday evening. Campus Life talks about prob- k: lems of life, drugs, sex, etc. " It is a lot of fun, and makes Monday ' s not so boring, " stated sophomore Ellen Felten. This year ' s Bowling Club ended the season in early February. The Bowling Club consisted of 24 members, about which Mr. Sipe stated " We didn ' t have as big a turnout as we wished. " Amy Mohr was the best girl bowler, and Wayne LaFlash was the best boy bowler. But in the long run it was a good season. ■V SENIOR CURT ESTERLINE and junior Jeff Murphy are helping each other devel- op film for the newspaper.

This is a mere sample of the serious- ness and coordination of the 1984 MIRAGE Yearbook staff. HERFF JONES YEARBOOK Company re- presentative, Mr. Jon Winteregg, discusses 1984 cover possibilities with staff editors. HEIDI HAMM ROUGHS it on one of the first few days of the year with a rough draft of the Wrestling page. NEW PUBLICATIONS STUDENT Michelle Ausdran listens to instructions from Mr. Kirk ton. 182— Publications BOB TREAT CALLS upon the vast knowl- edge of yearbook advisor Mr. Jim Kirkton. Making a year last a lifetime. JAMIE TRAHIN FINALIZES the idea for the first few opening pages of this year ' s MI- RAGE. TAMMY CRISLER RECORDS the payment for an ad placed in the ad section by a local business. The 1984 MIRAGE Yearbook staff started out the 1983 school year drawing styles, selecting a theme, and deciding upon a cover design. As the year went on, the yearbook staff collected bits and pieces of information and compiled them into separate sec- tions and slowly but surely assembled 192 pages to preserve the class memories of 1984. Although there were many schedules to be considered, it was up to the ap- pointed editors to be sure deadlines were met. The sections were completed one by one, starting with the sports and back- to-school divisions in the early fall, going onto student life and the people section in mid-winter, and finishing out the with the academics clubs, and ads divisions. Although putting together a 192 page yearbook in nine months may sound sim- ple, it is far more difficult than you ' d think. I should know, this particular page should have been done two weeks ago. COLOPHON Volume 45 of the Ne w Ha ven High School Mirage was printed by the Herff Jones Yearbook Company, Montgomery, Ala- bama, using the offset lithography process. The 192 page book was printed on 80 pound enamel paper with a press run of 660 copies. Mr. Jon Winteregg represented the printer. The cover is made of 160 pound binder board displaying the theme " Pride is Flying High. " Body copy was set in 10 point Century Schoolbook, while captions were printed in Century Schoolbook Italic and Century Schoolbook Demi Italic. Each section utilized a modified column layout style designed by the publications class. Graphics consisted of 2,4, and 6 point lines as well as gray colortexts. Eighty percent of the photos were shot by students using Tri-X film. All portrait pho- tos and some special events shots were photographed and printed by Walker ' s Stu- dio, Fort Wayne.

The 1983-84 school year was the be- ginning of an era for some but the end of one for others. For the most part, this year will be remembered for the games where one saw that gorgeous hunk or good looking babe, for the day where one received his first 100% on a unit test, or for the first date with that person you are infatuated with now. But the times most special to alot of people were the times when our voices, not always in the best of taste, carried the Bulldog teams onto victory. The Pride! Everything you did was expected to be good because of the word Bulldog, and Usually everything was. The pride in this seven letter word took people to various places in search of excitement whether it be in New Haven or in Fort Wayne with other high school students. Sometimes the rivals grew into friendships as each person looked for someone to go looking for women or for men, as the case may be. It seemed to help tantalize that cute per- son when the phrase " I ' m from New Ha- ven " was spoken.

John Long and Mike Bo- dine, we think, stroll the halls in their best duds. Closing— 189 Pride is flying high Making it special GARY BRADTMUEL LER AND Todd Hook relieve the pressure by a little fun contact of their own. The year was far from perfect but the times that shone through can make memories super special. As shown when the football team pulled off the triple overtime victory over Homestead. The sports were not all that happened, by far. We went to school dances, we par- ticipated in various clubs and activities, and we went to various weekend spots. The school dances ranged from the Sweetheart Dance to after-game dances to the beach dance all sponsored by the Student Council. During the weekends, the spots to hit were the Electric Circus and the Casbah. Both places offered New Haven students the chance to " strut " their stuff in front of new people. Weekends sometimes proved to be more of school life than school itself at times. BASKETBALL GAMES CAN often be filled with anticipation. Dawn Norris and Lourie Potter await the rebound. CARL WETOSKEY, IN the clothes of the mafia, poses the ' hard ' look during Anti- Apathy Week. SPRING BROKE OUT the kickers to the field for fun and glory.

HHTp Win 190— Closing JAMES KIRKTON AND Pat Monaghan present Mike Bodine with his Bulldog Club award as a football player for the 1983 season. THE WEEKEND BEGINS with the 3:05 bell. Students sometime carry a small amount of homework home thinking not necessarily of it. TWO MAD SCIENTISTS discuss theories in the hall as a snap was taken. AT BASKETBALL GAMES, the fans were often treated by several young ladies per- forming at halftime. Here, these girls end up their routine. Closing— 191 Pride is flying high Making it . . special All in all, the year was made up of the time spent at school. The old 8:05 to 3:05 doldrums! A matter of opinion, of course. The school days brought classes which brought work. The most dreaded word in most students ' vocabularies! Those that worked hard earned the rights of honor roll, honorable mention, and for the seniors, Honor Society. Sometimes people didn ' t make these be- cause of missing a day that the teacher lectured over the test material or just plain blowing a test. Being so close can be so frustrating but it can help people push themselves harder to make it the next time around. The school ended on a sad note for a lot of people — The passing on of many friends through graduation. But we must look at it as a time for us, who will remain in this building a year or more, to move up and take our spots — showing that our pride is, indeed, flying high! ULRIKA FRIEDLER LAUGHS with friends up on the track. She seemed to fit in like the other foreign exchange students. RICH REMAKS PUNCHES in his program so as to get through computer class. The class often tested the minds of its partici- pates. AFTERSCHOOL ACTIVITIES OFTEN meant visiting the malls around the area. Andy Police looks over some clothes to buy when money becomes available. A LOT OF times class can become boring going over tables and such; that is, if you don ' t have a crazy teacher such as Mr. Ste- phan. 192— Closing
