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.
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
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.
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 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
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
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
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
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-
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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

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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
The third Annual Cultural Arts Festival was held in
Gurley Stadium. 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
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.

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
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

the Varsity Cheerleaders brought more spirit to NCHS than in past
years. 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.
J.V. fans enjoyed the devil spirit shown
by the Junior Varsity Cheerleaders. Under the
direction of Barbara Haight and Leslie Brooks,
the girls boosted enthusiasm at the Thursday
night football games. They then cheered on
their basketball teams with chants and numer-
ous cheers during the '75-'76 basketball season.

NCHS had a championship football team this year. The Red Devils captured
first place in the Southern District Seven conference. They went on to the
semi-finals for the state championship. Spurred by the running of Dennis
McCorkle and Butch Baker, and the hard-hitting defense led by Mike Moss,
Charles Klutz, and Richard Lewis, our team gained a total of 3,426 yards
offensively, while holding their opponents to 2,235 yards. All of us here at
NCHS are very proud of this season which certainly was one to be remembered.

wins, no losses, and no ties. The team
scored a total of 258 points while holding

This year, Volleyball was added as a sport for girls at NCHS. The season got off to a
bad start, but things picked up as soon as the team became accustomed to the new game.
The 4-4 season was climaxed by a first place trophy won at a volleyball tournament
played at Lenoir Rhyne College.

BASK E TBALL
Although losing the leadership and strength of
their only senior, Captain Cathy Powell, to gradua-
tion, the young Devilette team can look forward
to a winning season in 1977. 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.
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

earned rebounds were Red

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;

The tennis team this year, coached by Mr. David
Jones, finished their season with a record of 9 wins and
1 loss. Their only loss was to Shelby who was the
Western Conference Champion. The team participated in
the Western Regionals at Meyers Park. The doubles team
of Allen Spizzo and Kim Barber reached the quarter-
finals. Altogether, the team had a very good season and
NCHS is very proud of them.

The golf team led by their most valu-
able player, Sidney Abernathy, placed
fourth in the conference tournament this
year. Dale Jarrett represented the Red
Devils in a Sectional tournament held in
Gastonia. Eight of the eleven players re-
turn this year with more experience to
guide them to a better season.

team finished fourth in the

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. The Red
Devils are coached by
Coach Gary Jarrett

Softball replaced tennis this year as a
spring sport for girls in the Southern District
Seven conference. The Red Devilettes were a
young and inexperienced team. The New-
ton-Conover season ended with an overall
record of 2-10. With the addition of many
capable sophomores, Coach Lynn Deal looks
for a much improved team and a more re-
warding season this year.

As the basis of all courses, English is required of all

avoid schedule conflicts, the English department de-

so that students taking one class would automatically
take its partner. The wide variety of courses and its
dedicated teachers gave each student an opportunity
to gain a broad background in English.

The year has ended. Seventy-f'Ive-seventy-six at NCHS
has unfolded iust as the flowers bloom in spring.
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.
