" this girls ' drill team, with its precision perfect rou- tines, has become a part of the tradition of our school, they perform at both football and basketball games and never cease to amaze spectators with their ability to conjure new routines for every occasion. basketball fans of all ages especially enjoyed the dance sequence at the jimtown game, accompanied by our talented pep band, the girls presented " that wonderful year " which included the Charleston, jit- terbug, twist, and contemporary dance routines, appropriate costumes worn by the dancers contrib- uted greatly to the production. the cougar cadettes have acquired a reputation for being a contender for national honors in drill team competition by appearing in the Wisconsin spectacle of music at milwaukee. this experience is one of the highlights of their year and keeps them busy year round. this w as a memorable year for cougar cadettes as it marked their switch in uniforms, girls in the corps were attired in bright gold uniforms, while the ma- jorettes, chris gadacz and cindy fernald, wore navy blue. pep club miss volkman, sponsor; carol de poy, president; peggy wood, freshman repre- sentative; daria gesse, treasurer; dianne fischer, secretary; helen hanson, ju- nior representative; diane sacks, sophomore representative; becky schroeder, senior representative. this was the first year for an organized pep club at new prairie, under the leader- ship of miss volkman, the club became very important. the first project was to purchase sweat- ers for a look of uniformity, the sweaters were quite a success and were worn to all home games. along with the arranging of the block, hand motions were learned in unison, to add to the effect of the block as a whole, mike quinn became the mascot by dress- ing as a cougar and made his debut at the last home game before christmas. he be- came a regular at home games and pep sessions with his famous cougar cheer. debra bradfield, area one vice-president; pam jones, assistant secretary; mr, colborne, sponsor; debbie schreiber, vice-presi- dent; sue moore, historian; sue porter, treasurer; betty brown, president; kathy akin, secretary; debbie biehl, reporter. future teachers of america this year fta, the future teachers of america, con- tinued many of its established practices, meetings consisted of speakers connected in some way with education, the club still employed the use of a point system, whereby the members collect points — by grading papers, lecturing before a group, and at- tending meetings, etc. — which earned them mem- bership pins and bars, it hosted an area meeting, where varied schools in the area met to exchange ideas and elect new area officers, many of whom would run for state offices, two students from new prairie — martha bowell, miss fta, and pam jones, corresponding secretary-treasurer — won area of- fices, another new prairie student, debra bradfield, held the office of area vice-president in 1959. in the spring, fta members attended a state convention and also visited Indiana state university in terre haute. first row: gail shock, charlene van schoyck, sherri king, carol wagner, brenda anders, penny pomeroy, debbie adnson, cheryl van schoyck, pam oberholtzer. second row: penny richardson, wendy jones, terri wozniak, april eskridge, diane sacks, tina loucks, terri hansen. third row: joann fouty, terri flitter, chuck szylagi, david jandrisovits, michelle dailey, Su- san todd, pat lachowin. first row: martha bowell, diane metzner, diana mcdonnough, barb golubski, marsha belt, barb miller, becky schroeder, roberta faulstich, paula depoy. second row: diane rehlander, barb nelson, diane vermillion, sue white, helen hansen, car- la mcdonald, diane Johnson, eva Wallace, third row: Judy gilpin, gail deutscher, sue cuff, ray bealor, annette dewit, diane fischer, chris gadacz. fourth row: debbie vollmer, yvonne zolman, marsha belsaas, julaine nelson, daria gesse, lavon har- diman, cheryl paul, sheila smith, fifth row: warren carpenter, mike quinn, chuck haverstock, mike foster, jerry bratcher, mary ann leinhart, bob breaux. yearbook first row: carol de poy, diana mc donnough, barb miller, vickl Jones, becky schroeder, paula de poy, debble nickerson. second row: terri wozniak, patti skaggs, cathy zahl, annette de wit, pam Jones, debbie parry, third row: margo bryant, paul dickie, sue moore, nan Harding, sheila smith, scott amen, nancy houk. this year the yearbook staff had an extremely difficult task, it was decided to have a spring distribution of the books, which meant long hours of hard work to meet the final deadline of feb- ruary 23. there were pictures to be tak- en, captions to write, and copywriting to be done, after the yearbook itself was completed, the staff was kept busy producing a summer supplement. chris gadacz, business manager;

Steve rzepka led off with a bolt of speed as he fought his way between a pair of rival runners, wayne mar- tensen took a perfect hand-off and increased the margin, bob breaux delighted n.p. fans with his ef- fort and rich simpson brought home the baton in victory, these seniors clipped the conference relay mark by eight tenths of a second as they turned in a 1:36.5 time. gordon smith, who was named the most improved runner, staged a tremendous kick in the final lap to win the conference mile, wayne martensen, who holds the conference mark in the 440, successfully defended his title in that event. led by captain rich simpson, many seniors contrib- uted to the success of the team, bob breaux won the most valuable trophy for scoring the most points and set records in the 100 and 220. wayne martensen was a regular winner in the 440 and ran the mile relay, mike quinn could be counted on in the two-mile run. steve rzepka led off the 880 relay and steve warren doubled in the high and low hurdles. field events will be hard-hit by graduation, jim noel and rich dodd, both vaulters, were four letter winners in track, paul dickie set the indoor long jump record. these seniors helped fashion a track tradition at new prairie and they are confident their efforts will serve as an inspiration to underclassmen to strive for even better results. y golf first row: coach leon adnson, rick thompson, steve bealor, ron bendicks, roger teska, scott joslin. iecond row: terry Stockton, torn kempf, torn Stockton, dan hertzberg, doug Hammond, steve mann, tim marker, martin smith. unseasonal snow squalls greatly hampered the links activities of coach leon adnson ' s golfers, com- pounded with the weather restrictions was the fact that coach adnson faced a monumental rebuilding effort due to the loss by graduation of several veter- an performers. Steve bealor was named the most valuable golfer by virtue of his 42.9 average score, scott joslin, tom Stockton, roger teska, and ron bendicks earned their letters in golf this season, hopes are high for future years as none of these boys graduated this year. the team finished a respectable third in northern state conference play and compiled a 5-6 record for the entire season, their scores were favorable throughout the season and this young team showed steady progress throughout the season. baseball first row: mike daley, bob keck, judd hill, dave dodd, wait kulasa, chris wykoff, dan shead, ray nickerson, steve tolmen. second row; coach harry tolmen, mike miller, Jeff schroeder, larry shead, doug schmeltz, don hetrzberg, bob deutscher, bob calhoun, dave nickerson, dan rush, mark galloway, matty bush, coach bill lynch, bruce eastman. seniors dominated coach harry tolmen ' s baseball team which took on a hefty league schedule and emerged with eight wins against nine losses. chris wykoff was named captain of the diamond- men and he was also recipient of the bill strong sportsmanship trophy. judd hill was an excellent target for the mound corps and he wasn ' t opposed to blocking the plate when called upon to wipe out potential enemy scorers. ray nickerson used his huge size to great advan- tage as he handled first base chores with finesse, his very presence lent encouragement to his mates who were confident he could scoop up anything in sight of the initital sack. wally kulasa, of the rifle arm, was named to all- conference honors for his ability to patrol center field and to get the ball back into the infield with great haste. dave dodd was a good hard-nosed second base- man who wasn ' t afraid to charge the ball and would play the long hop rather than to wait for dribblers to come his way. dan shead was rightfully named as an all-confer- ence pitcher, he sported a .434 batting average in the conference to help his own cause — pitchers are usually notoriously inept hitters. John glenn furnished the opposition in the first game ever to be played on our own diamond, the cougars emerged victorious with dan shead racking up a 6-4 win. shead also had the honor of scoring the first run over our new home plate. 1 prom new Orleans ' most gala affair — the mardi gras — was brought to n.p.h.s. this spring by the junior class, the prom broke with tradi- tion in two aspects; first, it was held on a friday night rather than a Saturday, and, secondly, the entertainment after the movie was provided by a professional magician, these differing features, combined with a day at the beach as an aftermath, effected a week- end not only memorable, but enchanting as well. senior week : ,4 1 o 03 Ti front row: lorea heise, sharon tipton, James walbert, mike foster, bob breaux, barb miller, julie zielinski, steve neumann, John borkowski, diana mc donnough. back row: vicki Jones, nancy hayter, torn kempf, dave jandrisovits, marsha belsaas, gary sheeley, tony helms. all school play n.p.h.s. presented as its first all- school play, " the night of January 16 " . directed by william haselton, this production was unique in that the entire play took place in the courtroom with the audience partic- ipating as the jury. open 7 a.m. -9:30 p.m. 778-2411 art ' s " 66 " service u-haul trailers located byron rd us 20 rolling prairie complete auto repair including air conditioning we give t v stamps national honor society first row;

Joseph in a meet run over our own course, from a personal standpoint, this victory meant much to the boys as it was run over a course they helped to lay out themselves and was designed to offer a challenge to all competitors. new prairie also hosted the largest cross country meet in northern Indiana with 26 teams participat- ing, this will be an annual event and should do much to stimulate interest in this fall sport. gordon smith, jim banaszak, bob deer, bruce har- ber, louis zelasko, bob deutscher, and dan troxell earned letters for the 1969 season, smith and harber also received plaques from coach blaine gamble for running tn excess of 250 miles on their own during the summer months. 65 swimming top: John sinka, brent miller, bruce goodson, bruce dickie, ron bendix, Jeff beyer, mark bromley, scott joslin, bob cenkush, kim sauers, bob keck, jerry batcher, coach art rose, middle: mark costello, dave burkus, mike houser, terry garoutte, bob hawkins, alan cowham, ran- dy rudecki. sitting: bruce stoner, neil loucks, ken schell, larry norris. if enthusiasm and intense interest are any mea- sures of predicted success, the future of swimmmg as a varsity sport at new prairie is very bright, in their initial season the swimmers, under coach arthur rose, showed steady progress and compiled some respectable school records before the end of the year. although the team was dominated by underclass- men who gained valuable experience this year, and will be available for service in the future, several se- niors contributed their talents to the team, jerry bratcher won his share of blue ribbons as did judd hill and randy lucas. Indiana has long been a power in competitive swimming and has furnished many gold medalists in Olympics, with our new pool and the genuine desire of our swimmers, it is entirely possible that some future star will have obtained his background at new prairie. agriculture I L ff iit?.i5?7, ifc " ■■ Jik C VJ Bi ' i B k _ y - T H ISft V y 9 T Ij HBI i H " ' L ' " B H n vegetable judging team. bookkeeping office lab bookkeeping shorthand W fm " office lab journalism t mv " foreign languages i yHg l- physical education and health algebra trig algebra II advanced math advanced math industrial arts social sociology science history world problems home economics ■ x-.

torn ludwig, president; shirley gamble. the class of 71 anxiously awaits its chance to be- come seniors, soon they will be entering their last, confusing, sad, happy, enlightening, and meaningful year at new prairie. their accomplishments were numerous; the most notable being the memorable prom they gave the class of ' 70. others included the winning of the foot- ball season homecoming float, and the triumph of being the first class to win the spirit stick of 1969. as were all former junior classes, they were proud of their rings, and rightfully so. wearing them, the juniors feel that they gained a life-long link with new prairie high school. as the end of this school year approached, the ju- niors became more and more aware of the fact that important decisions concerning their futures must be made, this, coupled with the everpresent spirit of competition and the taking of many important tests for the college-bound students, made the junior year one of the most progressive and confusing years in a student ' s life. ben ackerman mike adams kathy akin betty albertson lynn anderson dan artist randy bailey lyle baker jim banaszak cyndy bartoszewicz Virginia baughman ray bealor ray becker laura beyer cookie bilinski John borkowski martha bowell Charles bowker marlene boyts debbie bradfield dave brasseur dennis brewer diane brewer mark bromley rick brugh norene buss rick buzaiski Janice calhoun bob carlton roger carlton dave carr bill coddens jim cooreman jane cooreman mark costello barbcrum joecuson dan davis sharon davis John deckard bob deer pat demeyer annette dewit linda diedrich bruce dickie 123 doug dodd leona doerscher karen dolph leslie dolph maria eastman robin eckert marsha ekstrom rodney eskridge dianne fischer rondi flagg larry foster nick galvas Shirley gamble daria gesse bruce giles drew gilpin John ginter barb golubski bruce goodson rick gourley gail graczyk juanita green patti green barry halter pat hannon charlle hansen helen hanson lavon hardiman mike harris jo ellen heminger robert hennen mike hoggard chris hunt dave jesswein diane Johnson jeff Johnson keith Johnson rich Johnson gerald jonas alice Jones alien jones guy Jones pam jones scott joslin pete kaminski karen kaufman bob keck barb kegebein dennis keiley becky keiley diana kettring gail kindig randy kleine bill kopkowski judy kulwicki charmaine land phil land gary lange nancy lapaich lynn sue lepley mary lewis mary ann lienhart chris litza sarah loop torn ludwig cookie lynch charles maesch debbie main donna marchand mary martensen kathy martz diane metzner henry meyers herman meyers carl miller gary miller mike miller peggy miller barb mitchell dan mitchell 125 margot montemayor sue moore wilma moore sue murphy darrell myers gary mccleland garald mccullough caria mcdonald linda nagy dermis nalepinski dave neal barb nelson julaine nelson bruce nickerson Janet nlespodziany larry norris terry norris torn obrien lewis oldham linda ostroski debbie peterson Janet peterson debbie petree larry petree gerard pizark lewis plumbeck glen quirk sue raines diane rehlander debbie robinson tom roesner rodney rosenbaum Jeanne ryder paul scales Jeanne schroeder chuck schwark theresa scott rosemarie seibert jay seniff donna shock 126 John sinka ray sipes judy sipotz patty skaggs mike skaggs Julie small bob Stacy joan stanish tina Stroud John stultz karen surma bill sutton roger teska greg thoman Steve thomas Curtis thompson diana thompson Steve tolmen Jester toothman dan troxell pat truex jeff tuhoiski peggyupp diane Vermillion frances vermilyer deb vollmer jim walbert lynn walker joe ward rose warfield cliff Warner jim warren dale watkins linda wawrzynski Sandra wawrzynski mike weeden joeweinstock sue white gladys wiltfong jack woodruff ary wordinger torn yeater ray zakrzewski linda zarobinski chris zelasko pat zioza exchange students karen kaufman, ila zondrozny, pat cevallos. this year new prairie was fortunate enough to have two exchange students, both girls were from south america, ila being from brazil and pat from peru. while in the united states, the girls made their home with mr. and mrs. kenneth kaufman and family. class of 70 1970 will be a harbinger of dif- ferent thoughts and new ideas for the upcoming decade, it also brings the graduation of this group, the senior class of new prairie high school. past accomplishments are numerous, we had more than our share of scholars, leaders, and athletes, their feats in leadership, scholarship, service, and competi- tion made the entire school proud, but most of all, the seniors felt a tremendous pride in the accomplishments of our friends and classmates. as we end a phase of our lives, we feel that we have had the time of our lives. the middle of our junior year brought the confusion of actual consilidation. we combined well, we put on a prom and had a great time; we claimed two national merit finalists; our senior domi- nated football team had a winning season; our basketball team claimed the title of northern state conference champions; confer- ence champs in every sport were members of our ranks. we made many deep friend- ships, which time will test, and shared laughs, tears, joy, sorrow, fun, and trouble, as we leave nphs, we can wish for those who follow no more than to enjoy it as much as we did. debbie parry, secretary;
