Newton-Conover High School Newton, North Carolina Volume 42 MM arm thx . . . I S mpurpose? Th'ere are so ma V am Iggally t , Ext is Each individual represents one piece of the puzzle of life. I am an individual, a part of the puzzle, I have my contributions to give. Whether they be large or small, each influences the completion of the puzzle. My destiny is unknown; my future-only dreams not yet fulfilled. We come into the world alone. We go away the same. Make each step towards your departure a moment to be remembered. CGNQFEN E , 44,94 I am only one, But still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. Edward Everette Hale Don't let life get you down, my friend though it seems the blues will never end. On this you can depend, they always do And I can tell you that it's true, it's a feeling And you've got to do it You've got to take the bitter with the sweet. Carole King s Join the puzzle- with open arms and willing hearts. There's a space for you Your shape may be different from the others, but your life is just as important. THE DEDICA TION The future . . . what does it hold? This nation has excelled to the point of suprem- acy in a mere two hundred years. Its people owe this prosperity to the determination and strength of our forefathers who founded this land. We are a fortunate peo- ple. Yet, there are those who abuse and slowly destroy our country with corrupting factors which may some day cause this nation to decline in superiority. This down- ward trend need not occur. We cannot look into the future to learn the outcome of our battle to remain great and free, but we can extend our efforts to continue along the road of prosperity. If everyone moves for- ward with anticipations of a better world, America will remain the powerful country she is. Therefore, the annual staff dedicates the 1975-1976 CARDINAL to the next two hundred years in hopes that they will continue to hold freedom, progress, and brotherhood for the United States of America. The excitement and un- certainty of the first day were soon lost as the students and teachers became more famil- iar with each other and their schedules. After a welcome in the gymnasium, a new and unpredictable school year was under way. 10 -Eik;r 12 Students and teachers enjoyed the half an hour of lunch to eat or just to relax. Long lines had to be fought, and complaints about the sometimes questionable food were heard daily. 13 ,3 ,. ..,xw,z Iw'v m ?- Many candidates, speeches, and ballots com- posed this years elections. Students concerned with improving our school and becoming active members of the student body ran for various of- fices. The elected students worked hard through- out the year having several projects going on at one time. 15 16 17 Long and hard hours of practice proved themselves worthwhile when the Newton- Conover Red Devils came out on the field. Running for touchdowns, completing passes, calling plays, tackling opponents - all of these aspects of the game were done super- bly this year by the Red Devils. The team was on its toes throughout the game. Even on the sidelines, players watched with anticipation of getting back in the ac- tlon. u 4. In x 19 A clear and cool October tenth was the night of Homecoming. During halftime, Anne Gabriel was crowned queen with Laura Kcarns as first runncr-up, and Jeanne Neu- licht as second runncr-up. The foot- ball game victory was followed by a dance with HSouthbound" pro- viding the music. As a result of many long hours of diligent practice by the band members, superior halftime shows and concerts were given. Football fans, spirits were boosted with lively tunes, and the precision marching and color of halftime were entertaining. 22 z This year, NCHS supported two winning football teams. Like the Varsity, the J.V. team was the sole champion of its league. Dedicated cheerleaders and spectators cheered the players on to their third con- secutive undefeated season. 23 Girls participated in a fall sport for the first time this year at NCHS. Volleyball proved to be an emotional as well as a physi- cally tense game. Players learned the tech- niques of power volleyball under the coach- ing of Ms. Lynn Deal, and as the season progressed, volleyball gained in popularity. !2 1252 cf. iRIiKASA 24 To help boost school spirit at NCHS and to raise money for various clubs, a bonfire, a powder-puff football game, and a donkey basketball game are becoming annual extracurricular events. Before the play-off game with Elkin, the student body motivated the team to victory at this year's bonfire. Along with victorious males came victorious females when the Senior girls defeated the Junior girls in the Iaughter-arousing powder-puff football game. Laughter is too mild a word to describe the hilarious events that took place as the students and teachers battled each other for victory in the donkey basketball game. To the normally dominating teachers came a sharp blow when the students defeated them. 25 i K" 7, EH; Ft The AFS week-end, one of the schooVs most popular club activities, ushered in a host of foreign friends when the AFS Club held this annual event. From Friday afternoon until Monday morning, these students enjoyed Amer- ican hospitality with a Newton-Conover stu- dent. A dance, numerous parties, and a trip to Eastland Mallts ice skating rink highlighted the week-end. f : J 3 . t r s ' '13 i 26 ' .. t 4" . . t V t tn '3'... :r. zest W M to. 6 b; V m 7,5 ' 4 he may J' I Initiation, dues, bake sales, and parties e these are just a few of the elements that constitute a club at NCHS. AFS members raised money at a bake sale held during one of the Newton-Conover football games to Finance the club's annual AFS weekend. The Spanish Club and members of the Spanish classes enjoyed their national foods party as they experienced Spanish cooking. Junior Civitan members entertained the Special Education children again this year with music, refreshments, and friendship. An ad- ded activity proved to be beneficial when the Varsity Club sponsored a blood Hgive-in" at the high school. These are just a few of the many club activities made possible by the clubs' members. w -- g i i. V fge x; M w h "1- 27 Leading the pep rallies, the varsity cheerleadere helped build support for the teams. Through spir- it-raising cheers and hilarious skits, the student body became involved, and the team's desire to win was strengthened. 28 V M" Through assemblies or individual class presentations, NCHS students viewed a variety of personalities. English classes went to the audio-visual room to hear Mr. Good- fellow, a reformed alcoholic. He gave a startling narrative of the effects of alcohol and his fight to overcome alcoholism. Sergeant Larry Reese became the school liaison officer this year. His major purpose was to create a better relationship between students and policemen. An assembly on Monday, following the AFS week- end, gave the entire student body a chance to meet the exchange students. Through questions and native songs and dances, some of the customs of the various countries were learned. Mrs. Cline's classes enjoyed the music of Wayne Erb- sen, an accomplished performer on guitar, banjo, man- dolin, and fiddle. The students heard the oId-style moun- tain music which was once popular in the southern Appalachians. The Vagabond Players presented "Four From 0. Hen- ry" to the entire student body. Their lively performance, and comical interpretations of O. Henry's works were both amusing and educational. 11 ,u z; ,1, A 3; 1V?

The students from the Newton-Conover School system had the opportunity to express them- selves in various forms of art. Only the high school students participated in field day activities. Tug of war once again seemed to be the favorite activity of the students as it showed the most participation. .le fa. With Spring comes the excitement and anticipation of school dances. The Sophomore class enjoyed their even- ing with Bacchus and the theme, hFrom Elvis to Elton." The Jr. Sr. proved to be exciting when beautiful arrangements of lights were exhibited in a colorful array of shapes and figures. With two bands playing, everyone danced to their favorite tunes. 4O 41 v.4 . 3, 2,1 '! 44 HOMECOMING QUEEN Anne Gabriel W Ntw w-mn-r aww 48 SOPHOMORE QUEEN jilISchorle .9'. .. Ii, ..a..:..l..f.. w CARROUSEL PRINCESS 49 Kim Krueger FOREIGN EXCHANGE Ulrike Hollmann, Newton-Conoverls 1975- 1976 foreign exchange student, brought a touch of Austria to NCHS. She lives near Vien- na in a town called Moedling, has no brothers or sisters, and enjoyed her American life with a large family. While staying with Susan Gaither, she found many differences in the ways of living because she came from a very small coun- try. The first thing she noticed here was that everything was much larger than in her country - the cars, the streets, the stores, and the schools. She liked the high school and enjoyed the variety of courses. When asked about her school, she said, "Our schools are strictly lbrain' schools, and the main thing you do is study. Here you have many extracurricular ac- tivities which I like very much. I also like that the schools have many teams. The only thing we do is go on a skiing trip for one week. This is for the classes and their teachers and is about the most important event during the school year." During the summer of 1975, Bradley Epps participated in the AFS Americans Abroad Pro- gram. He lived with a family in Vitoria, Brasil IBraziIl for three months. While there, he at- tended school for a short time, visited parks, many cathedrals, a convent built in 1642, a port, and a chocolate factory. Bradley noticed some discouraging factors in his town - huge amounts of litter, poverty, and the unusual methods of driving I60-7O mph in towni. Dur- ing one of his tours, he went to Rio de Janeiro. There, he saw the Cristo Redentor IChrist Stat- uel, Pao de Acucar Ihuge cabIe-car mountainsl, the WWII monument, and a soccer game in Maracana, the world's largest stadium. "The numerous friends that I made and the various sights that I visited enabled me to accept and respect all people despite their outward differ- ences." These were Bradley's feelings after his trip. 50 IUNIOR MARSHALS W 2M3 were 5 . y 3 i. s 4 ff; w av M, k B: 2 - $33 . , i W? Standing: Greg Turner, Greg Cranford.

At the end of the first semester, eight juniors were chosen to serve as marshals. They were selec- ted on the basis of the scholastic averages that they had earned during their first year and a half of high school. Ushering at commencement and the baccalaureate service al- lowed these students to participate in the gradua- tion exercises. Two students, John Dil- ley and Frankie Hilton, were nominated for West Point this year. Their lead- ership and scholastic abili- ties enabled them to demonstrate characteris- tics suitable for the nomi- nation. 51 j GOVERNOR'S .. SCHOOL Stuart Bondurant spent six weeks attending Governoris School this summer. Ten major areas of study were offered during the session. Stuart participated in mathematics as well as a number of intramural sports. The program was intended to motivate a greater interest in learn- ing. Stuart gained this enthusiasm during his stay. Stuart Bondurant GIRLS STATE During the summer, Tammy Herman, Cathy Powell, Jeanne Neulicht, and Carol Roof represented NCHS at Girlsi State which was held at UNC-G. The girls attended numerous lectures which emphasized the necessity for women in the government. They set up a model government which included city and state officials. Elections were held and the girls were given the chance to engage in political activities. Jeanne Neulicht, Carol Roof, Cathy Powell, Tammy Herman 52 MOREHEAD NOMINEES Jeanne Neulicht and John Dilley were nominated this year for the John Motley Morehead Scholarship. They were individually interviewed by a group of local residents. From this conference, nominees were selected to advance to further competition. Dele- gates were chosen according to person- ality, scholastic ability, and their in- volvement in school activities. Jeanne Neulicht; John Dilley BETA CLUB The Beta Club is an honor club devised to commend those students who have worked hard and excelled in academics.

Not only did the cheerleaders work hard during the ballgames, they also worked very hard in preparation for each game. The Cheerleaders made posters, baked cupcakes and purchased other "goodies" for the players. 70 J.V. fans enjoyed the devil spirit shown by the Junior Varsity Cheerleaders.

Paced by the outside shooting of Leigh Shepherd and the inside play of Melanie Smith, the girlsi varsity team should be a , contender for the 507 championship next year. 0: Even though their record was disappointing this year, the Red Devilettes played strenuously, and Ie they deserved the support of NCHS fans. The Varsity basketball team had a sat- isfactory season this year. Tyrone Grand- berry, a sophomore, and Tony Floyd shared the ballhandling responsibilities. Another sophomore, Jimmy Matson, along with seniors, Donny Newsome and Mike Robinson proved very effective as both rebounders and leading scorers. Robert Pannell, a good outside shooter and defensive man, will be missed next year. The Red Devils were coached by Bobby Rowe. The majority of the team will be back next year, with the excep- tion of the three seniors. GIRLSI.V. BASKETBALL Coached by Ms. Lynn Deal, the J.V. girls basket- ball team had a good sea- son. With Gigi Robinson handling the ball, Terri Campbell bombing the nets from the outside, and the strong board play of Margaret Petree, Wadene Rhinehardt, and Laura Atkinson, the Red Devil- lettes were able to present NCHS with a winning sea- son. All of these girls should be a tremendous help to the Varsity squad next year. 1st Row: Rhonda Randall, Rita Pearson, Managers; Jan Bohler, Terri Campbell, Gigi Robinson, Cheryl Connor, Beverly Reid, Becky Stephens, Manager. 2nd Row: Cindy Setzer H Manager; Margaret Petree, Wadene Rhinehardt, Laura Atkinson, Alice Haen, Nancy Brockhoff, Karen Gibbs, Wendy Lutz, Lynn Deal - Coach.

The NCHS matmen had a fine season this year. Overcoming many strong oppo- nents, they finished second in the Southern District Seven. Starving themselves to qualify for the various weight classes and spending many hours practicing proved effective as they had gratifying results in frequent tournaments. Excluding four, all of the Red Devils will return next year. The Wrestlers finished with a 9-2-1 record. 7; . x K h A ' K . . t i 2 ., TRA CK ., e :3 TEAM This season the track team placed third and fifth, respec- tively, in the Catawba County Championship track meet and the Conference meet.

Butch Baker also tied the school record, along with McCorkIe, in the 100-yard dash with a time of 9.9 seconds. The majority of the track team members are back this year.

The first half of the sea- son, the Red Devils raced with Fred T. Foard for second place. The remain- der of the season became disappointing despite the fact that they gave it all they had. The Red Devils should make themselves known in the 507 this year. Half of last year's players will return with many prospective sopho- mores coming up.

Yet, with Our talents combined, we are one. m .3 . ,' V' N-r- - . NW. .VW'M' r The year has ended. Seventy-f'Ive-seventy-six at NCHS has unfolded iust as the flowers bloom in spring. 167 As the school year draws to a close, we the students bind our contributions into one, and the school's puzzle takes shape. This year is a special one, because it represents an anniversary of independence and achievement. The goals of each member of the high school have hopefully been attained iust as the goals of the men who proclaimed freedom in 1776 were fulfilled. Our daily routines, although some may have seemed monotonous, allowed this group of students to combine its efforts to form an interesting and sometimes exciting school life. Each individual represents a part of this institution and will always carry memories of the activities that involved his interests. This year is not only an anniversary year, but it is also an election year. Controversial issues plague the political parties as the population tries to decide who would be a capable man for the job of the presidency. A nation such as the United States needs and deserves a leader who can offer an equal opportunity for prosperity to each resident. In order to accept and properly utilize this opportunity, we must be able-minded and prepared. NCHS promotes this strength of character as it tries to educate its students. Acceptance of this education will aid each one of us as we take part in our country's activities. The 1975-1976 CARDINAL is a representation of this year and the students who have participated in the school's functions. Good luck to each one of you and to the nation as time proceeds into the future.
