ln 1871 the final spike was driven into the dusty
plain Several shacks sprang into existence almost
overnight The shacks were the beginning of Newton
The beginning had come when the Atchison
Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad had selected a site
for a cutoff point for the long cattle drive from
Texas Newton had its day of rip roaring wlldness
and bloody violence But once again the trail was
shortened to Wichita Even though the rowdiness
disappeared Newton retained the working drive of
the people who had settled it
As years progressed this worlmg drive built
Newton a firm base Church services were held and a
public school started classes
Newton High School s roots are in those classes
The first held did not include high school courses

but they were added in 1875 The one teacher
school and three month term were not much at first
but these things and others did get the school system
ln addition to the school system lndustry also
began The railroad still carried on business and the
grain industry thrived with the coming of Bernard
Warkentine and the Mennonites Turkey Red Vllheat
Newton was a progressive community with help
from the railroad and industry The people of 1872
had had a dream and it had come true Newton was
an established city The people of the present in
cluding the students of Newton High School could
look to the future using the working drive to make
Newton bigger and better Since 1872 to the present
and to the future the people of Newton are

As the people of Newton and
students of Newton High School,
our dreams sometimes get tucked
away in the back of our minds as
school begins Gone is the summer
and everyone is brought together
We share togetherness with our
friends as we see them in classes
at clubs or at lunch
Not only in school activities
bring closeness but after school we
drag lVlaln share a Coke or attend
athletic events together Many of
the joys secrets and pain of making
It through high school are shared
with friends old and new
Together with friends and people
we have so little in common with
we keep Makin Tracks to the
end of our high school years

As we look back to the past
decade, we see reflections -of
growth and maturity.
The days of the 70's slipped
by as we grew, both physically
and intellectiJally.e We deve-
loped with the help of -our ex-
periences into well - rounded
people. V .
We grew up, butkept a lit-
tle childhood with uos as we
traded in our bicycles for
cars and learned the mean-
ing of responsibility. -. The
decade was a time of Ataking a
stepin maturity. '
'We lived and learned from the
events and- experiences of the
70's. As we move on into 'the
80's, we look back in review of
the past decade and remember the
times we had-, but we look forward
continually while Makin' Tracks

bummer: cosy livin'limz
Come with me back to a time when
the sun was hot, the body darkly
tanned and the living easy, it was
there for the taking, the summer of
Students of NHS participated in
many various activities last summer,
everything from initiation to sports.
Many students experienced the 'tra-
dition of initiation from upper class-
men. Charlene Crotts, freshman, said,
"I was thrown in three times. I got
vaseline, shaving cream and an egg in
my hair and all over my clothes. I
also got magic marker all over my
arms and clothes."
Many freshmen and sophomores
told similar tales of initiation. Those
who weren't initiated had varying
feelings. Some were glad they had
escaped, while others felt left out.
One student said it was a once in a
lifetime experience. e
Looking back on her initiation,
Gina Gonzalez, senior, said, "l felt
important. I felt when I was initiated,
I got accepted."
Most students felt it was not
something to be disappointed over.
Chris Boston, freshman, said, "Who
would like being thrown into a muddy
stinking creek, get shaving cream all
over themselves and still have to walk
around the fair."
It was surprising how many of our,
rather noted, seniors were never
initiated. For instance Kent Franz,
the Boese twins and Carol Jordan.
People who didn't receive "the
treatment" their freshman year, usu-
ally paid up later.. Another senior,
Jayne Hrdlicka, wasn't initiated until
her sophomore year and was rather
upset when it happened because, "l
wasn't a freshman."
Injuries from initiation range every-
where from nothing to broken bones.
Many people reported nothing major,
just a few scratches and bruises, while
others, like Cinda Davis and Elaine
Arellano, ended up with fractured or
Besides initiation, other things in-
volved students this summer. Sports
were abundant. Patti Paulson, senior,
Brenda Hill, senior, and Rochelle
Schmidt, senior, played fast-pitch
softball for J. P. Tire.
Mitch Boese helped coach a Babe
Ruth League baseball team for up and
coming players. He also, as he put it,
played "Boeseball, that's Boeses play-
Many students traveled last summer
to unusual and interesting places.
William Hanna, sophomore, attended
a tennis match at Wimbeldon, during
his visit at his grandmother's. At
Wimbeldon he saw such stars as Bjorn
Borg, Bosco Tanner and Martina
Navratilova. The highlight of Deanna
Garrett's vacation was "going out on
the town in Las Vegas and not coming
home until 5 a.m. the next morning."
"You know by the time you're a
senior, most people work full time,"
said Scott Barnhart, senior.
Steve Rostetter, senior, worked for
a combine crew strictly for the
money. He didn't really enjoy it too
much because "the boss was terrible."
Susie Wells, sophomore, enjoyed her
Derral Sommerfield, freshman,
farmed for his father. He said he
liked the farm work, but he also
needed the money.
Pam Dicken, senior, had a very full
summer, between preparing for the
county 4-H fair livestock show,
attending the National Summer Con-
ference for the Simmetal Cattle
Association and hosting a Japanese ex-
change student in her home during
For some, summer was a time for
relaxation. For others, it was a time of
work and for still more, it was a time
of preparation for the coming school
year. No matter what the summer was
to us, we all kept Makin' Tracks right
on through to the 1980 school year.

On Aug. 29 the final bell sounded. For students,
teachers and administrators it was that time of the
year again which meant getting back to school.
Although school actually began Aug. 29, students
got back into the swing of it at enrollment on Aug.
14. It was held on one day with all students enrolling
from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The idea of having enrollment
on one day-came from the administration as an ex-
periment to shorten the days of enrollment. Pearl
Kurr, vice-principal, said, "l think enrollment went
well. The only major problem was that we needed
more fees tables. Otherwise, I would say it was a
After enrollment there was much planning to do
on the part of students and teachers. School supplies
were bought and lesson plans were made, along with
trips to town or Wichita to buy school clothes.
Finally the planning paid off. School started and
familiar and new faces were seen in the halls. Note-
books and lesson plans were put to use, but not for
long, as school was interrupted for a three day Labor
Day vacation, bringing back the flavor of the summer
The brief holiday ended and it was time for every-
one to settle into the routine of going to school
for the next nine months. lt meant getting up and
going to bed earlier and to take time from usual TV
watching or dragging Nlain, but it was part of each
Some students chose to spend their free time
participating in fall sports. The -first football game
was held Sept. 7 against Winfield. The young and
inexperienced Railers lost 13-7, but played well.
After the game the Back to School Dance was held.
The girls' volleyball team played well as they won
the Valley Center Tournament Sept. 15. With the
start of these and others, fall sports were in full
swing, as were other activities.
Yearbook and identification cards' pictures were
taken Sept. 10 and 11. PTSA Open House was also
held Sept. 10. STUCO elections took place on Sept.
12 with many enthusiastic candidates.
With pictures taken, STUCO officers elected and
fall sports underway, the students of the high school
were organized, for the time being. It was no longer
thought of as being back to school, but being in

one unified body
Unity was the driving force behind the con-
struction of Homecoming '79, Everyone
worked together and gave a lot of support to
help make it a successful week.
The showing of the movie, "The Buddy
Holly Story," kicked off Homecoming Week
following with a day set aside for wearing fall
sport jerseys, or something black and gold.
Class competition was brought back in an
effort to obtain more unity.
"We've had real good results," said Bryon
Reusser, STUCO president. "We tried to get
more unity through more and more competi-
tion. A lot of people were trying to beat the
other classes and that brought more unity."
The competition included money jars, hall
decorations, spirit assembly, wig and grodie
day, and overall, hat and button day.
The winners of the money jars went as
follows: sophomores-first, seniors-second,
juniors-third, and freshmen-fourth.
Hall decorations awarded the seniors
with first, sophomores-second, juniors-
third, and freshmen-fourth.
The sophomores captured first place atfthe

The concourse was full all during the week
with students buying class spirit buttons from
STUCO, Fiailer pennants from HERO, and
mums from DECA, OEA 'sold pop and
caramel apples during hall decorations to
nourish the hard workers.
The hard workers were given a break the
following night, as they watched the 1979
Homecoming Parade roll down lVlain Street.
Following the parade a bonfire was held near
the rodeo grounds at Athletic Park. But there
was still more to look forward to.
As always, coronation is one of the high
points of Homecoming Week. Coronation

their noon meal.
"As tradition goes, the crown, medal, and
rose bearers were the small children of New-

son, and Angela Hunter, daughters of Gary
and Beverly Hunter, Molly Triggs, daughter of
Charles and Sharon Triggs, Justin Thaw, son
of Jack and JoAnn Thaw, and Tosha Whit-
field, daughter of Bick and Benie Whitfield.
Suspense captured the audience in antici-
pation of who was to be crowned, and
enthusiasm was displayed when the secret was
revealed. Come game time, the feeling of en-
thusiasm was still going strong.
Although the Railers lost their Homecom-
ing game, they played one of their better
games of the season. lVlany Newtonians came
out to support the Bailers whereas the
support of the Hutch team was not as great.
The aire of rivalry between the two teams
seemed as if it wasn't there.
Newton got off to a good start as within

Abney ran 43 yards for a touchdown.

I Freshmen sake it with them d
Within the cast of the fall play
"You Can't Take it With You," was
a unique group of students-they
were the freshmen members. This
fact in itself was not so unusual.
What was different was that the
number of freshmen was greater
than the number of all upper-
classmen put together.
Bhondalyn Bohm, drama teacher
and director, said that there were
not any problems with having a
young cast other than inexperi-
ence She said that the younger
cast responded to her better partly
because of their lnexperlence and
partly because they had never ex
perienced another director Because
the freshmen had never experienced
another director they responded
more quickly without hesitation
Not that the upperclassmen didn t
but the freshmen did where it was
most evident. Many people believed
that a young cast couldn't manage
to fill so many spots and give an
exceptional performance, said
Bohm, these ideas were proven not
true by the cast as they did a good
job acting in "You Can't Take it
Cast and director admitted that
there were some very frustrating
moments. Norma English said, "lt
was such a wacky play, it was hard
for us to take our cues."i
IVlany nerve-racking things hap-
pened along wlth the frustrations
For Bohm the worst was opening
night as she sat in the audience
where she could do no prompting
things were beyond that the actors
and actresses had to fend for them
Not every experience was a bad
one ln fact most cast members
reflect on many enjoyable times.
t "The most rewarding experience
for me," said English, "was hearing
the applause after the opening
night performance. It made all the
hollering from lVliss Bohm and the
very late nights seem worthwhile."
Each cast member, as they re-
call the good and bad, will remem-
ber their own case of stage fright.
For many, the case was bad, but
once they stepped out on stage and
said their first lines, all the
butterflies left and they were able
to go on effortlessly
Above all the acting and tech
nlcal work there was another ele
ment that Inspired the students
and that was the experience of
making new and closer friends As
Bohm put it I got to know the
kids not just as a teacher to stu
dents but as friends'

l The 7Os'A decode of decision
Now that the 70's decade has
ended one wonders about the years
to come. But more important is re-
membering the years gone bY1
After the era of the angry 60's
it was, supposed to be a quiet time-
a time to regroup and recover.
Instead came the 70's,'as testing
and turbulent as any decade in U.S.
history. And as they prepare for the
turn of another decade, Americans
are expecting more of the same.
It was a time marking the end of
the nation's unquestioned domi-
nance in the world. lt was a time to
forget a lost war and grieve for a
lost faith . . . disgrace and resigna-
tion of a president when Woodward
and Bernstein uncovered Watergate.
From Watergate and Wayne Hay's
congressional follies to Lockheed

institutions corrupt, venal and

distrust. Distrust of the govern-
ment, of institutions and of poli-
As the 70's wore on, the
almighty dollar crumbled and the

Rising crime rates, taxes and
inflation 'plagued the country. A
tax revolt rose in California, and
the political mood turned cautious.
When inflation struck, people
refused to believe that there was an
energy problem. Even when they
were paying S4 a pound for coffee,
S8 a pound for veal and S1 for a
gallon of gas.

The country's main streets and
campuses, with traces of protest
from the 60's, flared up for the
Cambodian invasion at the begin-
ning of the decade. The toll was

Ohio Kent State and two in a
civil rights protest at Jackson
State in Mississippi.
Despite the lowered voices and
profiles, it was a time of social
ferment. So many groups were
pleading special causes that the
political system was in danger of
fragmentation. Women United for
Action lWUAl protesting inflation
in 1973. All women fighting for
equality by way of ERA whose
campaign was actually started when
the first National Women's Confer-
ence was held in 1977. The
homosexuals came out of the
closets to declare their rights in
society and blacks made solid gain
in education, income and social
Along with political and eco-
nomical protests, there were also
situations dealing with religion and
the environment. Cults became a
very big movement in the mid-to-
latter 70's. There were those who
experienced "lost identities" and
the result was usually turning to the
cults and Eastern Religions. The
Catholic Church had three leaders
in the decade. However, Pope

John Paul ll awed the American
people and the press with his 1979
visit to the United States. The
environmental movement involved
the disasters: Nlinamata, Seveso,
Love Canal and Three lVlile Island.
But the 70's weren't totally
made up of murder and madness,
the happy moments cannot be
excluded. America's POW's coming

record-seven gold medals at the
1972 Olympics, Viking l's landing
on lVlars in 1976, and the safe land-
ing of Skylab in 1979. '
As the decade came to an end,
more crisis arose. Ayatollah
Khomeini's revolt against the
Shah's protection by the United
States produced an enormous up-
rise. This consisted of the kid-
napping of over 60 U. S. citizens.
The skyrocketed price of gas also
occured at the close of the 70's.
But to counteract this we had
the price of gold increase, the in-
vention of gasohol, and the rise
of Christianity to keep America
But, despite everything, Ameri-
cans are slowly reuniting. The 70's
have tried their faith and patience
and thus made America steadfast
and binding. Love is not scarce as
it once was but is being transmitted
through unity and pride.
What will happen in the decade
ahead? Well, sober and apprehen-
sive as it is, the national mood
concerning the 80's holds nothing
of fear or despair. Underlying
everything is the enduring
American faith that problems can
be solved and somehow the country
will pull through.

Winter Sports Week-
"The Cheap Detective," a comedy movie was shown Monday
to tip off Winter Sports Week. A keen and active interest set
the atmosphere, as did the long-awaited snow that came down
so radiantly but so furiously the week before. And an extra bit
of happiness was in the air with Valentine's Day at the week's
Everyone took part in making it a most felicitous week. The
freshman class sold sweet tarts for "sweethearts" in the con-
course and the Advanced Foods class sold sugar cookies, in the
shape of hearts of course. And it just wouldn'g have been
Valentine's Day without the silk rose and Carnation sale spon-
sored by DECA. Flowers were then delivered to lucky recipi-
ents on that special day. '
As the week went by, students showed their active support
and spirit in the many activities STUCO had so sufficiently
planned. "Overall the week was a real success. It went very
well, we were pleased with the participation both by the partici-
pants and the classes which showed their enthusiasm." said
Bryan Reusser, STUCO President.
Like always, different activities appealed to different stu-
dents. Students showed their spirit by the way they dressed
Tuesday, as it was overall, cowboy hat and sunglasses day. Wed-
nesday students wore their favorite T-shirt.
But for everyone the highlight of the week was the Winter
Olympics on Wednesday. Nlany events took place and the com-
petition between the classes and the faculty was evident.
Winners of the events were as follows: With the clothespin
held between the knees, juniors took first, seniors and sopho-
mores tied for second, freshmen-third -and faculty-fourth.
The dropping of the ping pong ball on the pop bottle
awarded the juniors with first, seniors-second, faculty and
freshmen tied for third and sophomores-fourth.
The ping pong ball on ramp placed the juniors with first,
seniors-second, faculty-third, freshmen-fourth and sopho-
The faculty took first place in throwing the football into the
basket and the seniors followed with second, sophomores-third,
juniors-fourth and freshmen-fifth.
The juniors captured first place passing the orange by the
neck, sophomores-second, seniors-third, freshmen-fourth and
Hitting the peanut down the court with a flyswatter put the
juniors with first place again, seniors-second, faculty-third,
freshmen-fourth and sophomores-fifth.
The total score in the Olympics honored the juniors with
first, seniors-second, faculty-third, sophomores-fourth and
Another activity in the Olympics was the class float competi-
tion. Winners were: juniors-first, seniors-second, freshmen-third,

Then, it was just a small building

When you least expect
it, itfs going to get you.
Sometime, somewhere, some-
how, the fever will catch up
with youg Maybe it has al-
ready and you just haven't
done anything about it. It
took me by surprise and I
decided to do something
about it. So I packed my
bags and headed for the
mountains' to cure--slope
I really don't know when
it hit. But I was anxious to
breathe the fresh mountain
air, to glide down the slopes
and to get away with friends
for a weekend of fun. Yes, I
wanted to join the ranks of
the faithful athletes who
participate in one of Ameri-
ca's favorite sports-skiing.
The weekend of fun my
friend had promised me was
a bit misleading. I had never
been skiing before, but it
looked simple enough. How-
ever, in the long run, it took
me 48 hours, 398 falls, 52
sore muscles, 6 tubes of Ben
Gay and 7'injured innocent
bystanders' to discover where
the fun was in the winter
When I had my skislon for
the first time and standing
on the top of the run, ready
to,pIay Jean ClaudevKiIIey,
it was still fun. But my, how
time flies when you're having
fun. My next move was a
mistake, I started down the
slope. I didn't ski down the
first mountain I came to, I
rolled down it. I didn't mas-
ter the slopes, I mastered the
art of falling-that was the
easy part. However, getting
untangled ,and back on my
feet, that was another story.
I kept wondering .how
things were at the lodge-the

friends insisted I keep at it,
Seeing small children on
skis inspired me to take on
the challenge to master this

Iy keeping up with the Iit4

myself at the same time.
Everything was going great
until they decided to cut inn
front of me, knock me off
balance and watch me roll
into a human snowball. It
wasn't their hysterical laugh-
ter that made me mad, but
rather the applause, I got
from my friends. They all
sk.ied by and told me that
was my.best fall yet. The
highlightof my first day was
that it ended. g
Unfortunately, I' wasn't a-
ble to take .my broken body
and place it in bed. Rather,
everybody wantedto stay up
and talk all night. All I wan-
ted to do was catch some
much needed zzz's and have
dreams that I became a ski

dressed and tried to move.
No luck. My muscles were
saying no-no and my friends
were saying yes-yes. They in-

everything would be fine--
why did they lie?
The entire day was spent
convincing myself that my
body would start functioning
in kno time at all. I never

The Santa Fe depot was first built in
1829, in English Architecture, like Shake-
speare's home. It was said to be one of the
most beautiful stations on the Santa Fe
Over 100 years later in the late 30's the
railroad had 35-40 passenger trains come
through Newton a day. The railroad was
very popular and definitely affected New-
ton's population. There were 1500 or more
employees, alone, in the Santa Fe system,
in Newton. A
The Harvey House, a well-known restau-
rant in the depot, was open 24 hours a day.
The manager of the Harvey House would

lived In the 22 apartments above the depot
Chefs and managers had special apartments
lt was the last Harvey House to close
Fred Harvey of the Harvey House had a
creamer He furnished eggs for the system
and also his Ice cream for 25 cents He also
shipped his ice cream on the train
Teens never hung out at the Harvey
House it was too formal and fancy But
the YMCA pool halls soda fountains and
confectionalres such as St Clalrs John
ny s and Hannas were always good places
to find them
They had other activities which Included
Ballroom dances held at the Ripley Hotel
with good bands playing They danced
waltzes tangoes jltterbugs and charlestons
to the sounds of Benny Goodman Tommy
Dorsey Stan Kenton and Swing and
Sway with Sammy Kaye
Teens had more social activities They
had parties and dances but also drove
their lVlodel As and lVlodel Ts up and
down the main drag lVlaun Street They
had less programs to watch on television
but they did listen to melodramas comedy
and such on the radio
When the Depression came, people never
had violence problems. They looked after
each other more. There were so many un-
employed that if someone came to their
door, tired and hungry, they took care of
them. ln gratitude, that person would re-
turn the favor by doing chores of some
sort. People were more trusting. "I don't
return the favor by doing chores of some
sort. People were more trusting. "I don't
know what people would do if a depression
came now. l wonder if people would be
more concerned, or turn against their .fel-
lowman. People seem to be more
concerned with their material possessions,
than their morals." said Harry A. Smiley,

Clubs play active role
Student Council lSTUCOl and
Usherettes were two organizations
who chose to serve students and
community in various ways. Both
clubs played an active role in the
numerous activities of the student
According to Charles Triggs,
STUCO's sponsor, the club's main
purpose was to represent the stu-
dent body in all areas of student
interest between students and fac-
ulty. Triggs felt they had achieved
this goal through their efforts
in making the weeks of Home-
coming and Winter Sports a suc-
cess. ln addition they also
helped in planning student ex-
changes, dances and the spon-
oring of a blood mobile.
STUCO was also considered an
excellent growing experience for
all those who got involved. "You
had a chance to help people, take
on responsibility and exercise
leadership," said Scott Jost,
STUCO's secretary treasurer.
"Being on STUCO enabled you to
help try and work out any pro-
blems which concern the students."
Triggs as sponsor was a great
asset to the club. "He gave us time
and support to help make our pro-
jects a success," said Jost.
Usherettes was also a school
based service club. The club was
made up of a group of 20 girls
voted in by previous members.
The only requirement was that the
girls have an acceptable academic
It was the member's job to usher
at any sports or arts activities.
They also worked to provide a
service to the community.
Besides working at games,
Usherettes raised money through
candy grams and bake sales. This
money was used in annual projects
including parties for the Day Care
Center and entertainment at
nursing homes and local charities.
In Shanalyn Kiger's opinion this
year the club seemed to be more
organized. "There was much more
unity and group participation."

lFFAj was as its title suggested,
a club directed towards those
students interested in future careers
in the field of agriculture.
FFA members were very busy
with many activities throughout the
year, including sheep, cattle and
poultry judging which the members
attended and participated in. The
officers of FFA were also able to
attend the National Western Live-
stock show in Denver, Colorado.
"FFA helped us to prepare for
the future in the aspect of farm-
ing," said Doug Croft. "We learned
how to manage a farm financially
as well as working with Iivestock."
The members also discussed pos-
sible careers in Agriculture related
According to Croft, the club
hoped to create a continuing in-
terest in FFA to all incoming fresh-
men who wished to continue in
farming. However, he felt that the
club should have not been limited
to just students from the farm.
"Anybody who was even half way
.interested in Agriculture, whether
rural or city residents should have
been involved in FFA."
Photography Club was a club
geared toward those who wished
to pursue a career in the field of
At the Friday morning meetings
members learned about the basic
workings of a camera and various
ideas and techniques of 'taking
photos. They also had several
lessons on photo judging.
"The members involved were
sincerely interested and were
willing to .give some extra effort,"
said Rhonda Brown. "This year the
club was a smaller. group but the
program wasqa good one."
lVlaurice Benninga, the club's
sponsor, basically turned the club
over to the students. They decided
what they wanted to do and he
helped them to accomplish their
"Over all the club was a good
learning experience. It gave the
members an overview of a new
interest that could develop into a
career if they worked hard enough
at it." said Brown.

Acting their part
Confronting youth with the
challenge and adventure of follow-

church and serving him through

of Christian Athletes IFCAI was all
Not only was this group the
largest club in the school, but it
also had more sponsors than any
other. This club was under the
leadership of Ron Capps, Dan
Randall, Dave Neely, Wendell
Woolum and Jan Reber.
An estimated 150 regular mem-
bers attended 7:15 a.m. weekly
meetings. According to the FCA
area representative this group was
one of the largest in the United
,Although the 7:15 meetings
rehded to discourage some people,
others felt it was worth getting up
"l like FCA because it's a close
knit group of people with common
goals and values. Another good
thing about FCA is that it gives you
the encouragement you need to
start off a school day," said Marcia
More than meetings brought the
150 member club together. They
were also involved in various activit-
ies such as Fifth Quarters, Christ-
mas caroling, get togethers at
various members' houses and
One of the smallest groups last
year was Thespians. Organization
seemed to be the main problem for
Thespians. The group was smaller
than past years, but this was
because a large number of members
graduated. Also the club had a new
leader, Rhondalyn Berroth.
However, Eric Branson, Thespian
president felt that as a whole
Thespians was a worthwhile ex-
perience. Members of the club had
a chance to gain useful skills in
acting through importvisational
Thespians had drama-related
goals. Mainly they wanted to raise
money to go to drama conventions.
However, lack of funds and organ-
ization prohibited them from
reaching their goal.

Three particular clubs provided a fellowship among
students. The goal of French, Spanish and Humanities
Clubs was to provide an opportunity for students with
interests in increasing their cultural knowledge.
According to French Club president lVlary Barr, her
organization was special because it allowed the mem-
bers to meet other students with interests similar to
their own. She felt that students that took a second
language were unique.
French Club was involved in a Christmas activity
along with the Spanish Club. They were also involved
in selling donuts as a money raiser.
Spanish Club was another club interested in creating
harmony among those students who were interested in
Although the size of the club had decreased consid-
erably from the previous year the members seemed to
be more involved.
"Because the club was smaller, we were able to have
more activities without totally depleting our treasury,"
said Lynn Kosminski a member of Spanish Club. A
These activities included-such things as a Spanish
supper in which members of the club prepared their
own meal made up of various Spanish dishes. They
also had a Christmas party in which they attended
the Wichita State University Spanish Christmas
Humanities Club member Sheryl Oblander also
felt that the smaller size of her club was an asset.
Since there were fewer members it was easier to go
on more trips.
Their trips were not confined to the Newton area.
There plans included trips to the Eisenhower Museum
in Abilene, Ks. and the Nelson Art Gallery in Kansas
According to Bonnie Selanders, sponsor 'of Human-
ities Club, her organization provided a fellowship among
students who were interested in art, literature, music
and travel. V

and Office Education Clubs of
DECA, one of the most active
in the sales business, wanted to
build a bigger name for themselves
in the Newton community. ln the
future, they hoped to be more
active in fund raisings.
DECA ran a business organiza-
tion, like a corporation. The mem-
bers played the roles of boss and
DECA, like other clubs, pushed
fund raisers and sales. The DECA
Depot took care of most of the
sales. lt made S10 a day at the
beginning of the year, and by the
mid-term, it had picked up to
approximately S50 a day.
DECA worked well with other
clubs, for example: they offered
time to make signs for OEA.
"OEA trained girls for secre-
tarial fields, and at the same time,
they gained leadership through club
activities," said Joanne Supernois,
sponsor. The girls filled out applica-
tions for Supernois. Supernois then
made a few phone calls and found
the girls jobs. The girls received pay
for working, and also obtained four
credits for two hours work.
Besides jobs, the 16 members
prepared for the OEA contest in
Emporia, by brushing up on their
typing, shorthand, and dictation
However, OEA was not all work.
Their main activities included OEA
Week and Pizza lnn Day. They ran
Pizza Inn for one day and received
half of what they earned.
VICA also dealt with preparing
for leadership in the world. Their
program was somewhat like OEA's.
Newton's industries hired VICA
members. They received pay and
also obtained credits.
They prepared for the Skill
Olympics, which included a
contest of Nlachine Shop Skills,
and a written test.
They also had money-maker
activities. They sold candy and
donuts in the concourse, and also
made log splitters to sell to the

Challenging Activit ies
"Bill Hayes was the best player at Newton High School. He could
give you a good game even if he was playing three or four people all
at once," said Lloyd Miller, sophomore.
"The longer you play the better you'll get," said Hayes. "To play more
than one person you must pick opponents who are easier competition. I
couldn't play several people of my same level all at once."
Hayesihas played chess since he was 10 years old. His father was the
person who got him started and encouraged him the most.
To stay in top playing form Hayes felt that at person should play
regularly and read books and magazines about new chess theories.
"lt's a game of skill, it all depends on the opponent and how well
he plays," said Hayes.
Hayes' expertise at chess sparked an interest in the game with many
new people joining the club.
Through Chess Club, members tried to sharpen their skills enough to
win the chess championship.
A complicated system was used to determine the best player and the
seeding for the spring tournament. Members earn points by winning
games against competitors. More points are earned for beating an accom-
plished player than for beating a less accomplished one. In the spring the
club sponsored a Chess tournament in which all students could take part.
Many Chess Club members had been playing for several years after
learning from friends and relatives. Miller said, "lt's a game where every
move is based on a possible move that you could make. Every move
must have a reason."
Whereas the membership of the Chess Club increased, the membership
of the Concession Club stayed about the same.
TheiConcession Club strove to teach students how to make currency
change and work with people by having to serve the public.
When the Concession stand was assigned to other clubs, the Concession
Club members helped out to keep things running smoothly. lVIildred
lVlixon felt that it was fun to help new people. She also said, "lt gave me
self-confidence and l'm not afraid to wait on a stranger anymore."
Joe Ramirez, sponsor, said, "The kids liked to help because they found
it fun to wait on people, see their friends, and drink Pepsi." One girl
commented that it gave her a chance to see her friends from other Newton
Ramirez also said that he could depend on the club to help him out if
another organization didn't show up.
He-noted that it is a very seasonal club, some helped during the football
season, some during the basketball season, and some helped all the time.

The Junior Varsity Cheerleaders'
values were important to them.
They were always at their best
supporting athletic events. Those
events included junior varsity and
sophomore basketball, football and
junior varsity wrestling.

blies were planned by the Varsity

Many times a week, the cheer-
leaders met at school early in the
morning for practices and extra-
curricular activities such as baking
or buying candy and cookies for
the lockers ofthe team members.
To some Varsity Cheerleaders
it was more than an activity, it was
a full time job. There was more to
an athletic event than cheering.
There were signs and run-throughs
to be made, candy to be given out,
money to be raised for the goodies
and also for cheerleading camp held
in the summer. During the summer
they received awards at the camp
But the cheerleaders couldn't
manage without the Pep Club. A
division of the gym was for Pep
Club. Their activities during as-
semblies and games included help-
ing out the cheerleaders.
Although they had many other
activities, like placing pin-ups on
lockers of the team members, sel-
ling license plates and parent's
nights for the team member's

Pep Club was low, but the great

According to N-club sponsor
Ron Gould, the purpose of N-

tion in the community. They also
wanted to get more involved
in school and community act-
To work toward this purpose
the club wrote a new constitution
for its members to follow. Even
with all the new rules, more guys
are coming to the meetings and
getting involved in activities.
"The guys- are doing more

themselves as in the past," said
Trash can sales were one of
their major community projects.

The club sold black trash cans
with gold Newton High School
emblems on them during basket-
ball season. They voted on what
to do with their profits. lt was
decided to buy something that
would benefit the entire athletic
program, and not just one sport.
Railerettes, sponsored by Jan
Reber, basically provided activities
for women who have lettered.
Railerettes sponsored a party
after each sports season, for all
girls out for a sport that season.
They held a cook-out at Camp
Hawk after the fall sports season.
Girls who competed in volleyball,
cross country, tennis, and golf
were invited to come.
The annual Railerette Banquet
was the highlight of the year. Every
girl who went out for a sport

' 'English is about people'
"English is about people, lit-
erature, human strengths and weak-
nesses and how to communicate
with peopIe," said Ron Gould,
English instructor. . I I
Gould believes communication is
essential to teaching and tries to
relate literature to current everyday
life for his students.
Another teacher who believes
communication is essential to the
learning process is Laura Widmer,
sophomore English teacher.
"Mass communication is a part
of everybody's everyday lives it
goes on all the time. lt's all around
us, television, radio, newspaper,
and in the announcements we hear
everyday in school."
Every person is effected by it
and this is how it is easily implem-
ented into English ll classes.
A major change in the English
ll classes was the deletion of soph-
omore term papers. lt was optional
to the teacher.
Joy Schirer, head of the English
department, said, "We feel, that
there are other writing skills that
they ,should master than just
If the student did want to learn
about composition writing they
could take Research Paper Writ-
ing the next year.
Also, this year there were five
English ll teachers. These teachers
were, Don Colborn, Ron Gould,
Bonnie Selanders, Alden Stratton
and Laura Widmer.
There were no real complications
with so many teachers teaching
English ll. lVlost of the five teachers
thought it was a good idea because
of the smaller classes and it
wouldn't hurt the students later on.
They also felt the sophomores
all received a different view point
and in the end they would all learn
the same thing.
Another change in the English
classes was that College Prep
classes were increased from three
hours to six hours.
The increase was contributed to

Deadlines: blood, sweat and tears
"When I first came here, my two
goals were to improve photography
and research and interview for more
interesting stories," said Laura
Widmer, a 1979 graduate of North-
west Missouri State University.
"l think in newspaper we have
made it more appealing graph-
ically and pictorially, and in year-
book I think photography has
improved 100 percent!"
Improving both publications has
taken time and effort, but most
staffers feel it was worth it. How
do you describe hard work, long
nights and extreme tension? Ded-
ication and determination! seemed
to be the key words.
"Even though being on the
newspaper staff takes a lot of hard
work, determination and especially
patience, I feel it's worth it because
it gives me a chance to express
myself in a positive and creative
way," said Jerri Watkins, newspaper
Widmer brought many new ideas
to both experienced and inexper-
ienced staff members.
"It's hard even for people
that were on the staff last year
because we don't know all that's
involved in making a good news-
paper.- lt's as though we're starting
from scratch," said Bobbie
O'Toole, newspaper news editor.
Just what is involved in making
a yearbook or newspaper? Time!
Both staffs do their own type-
setting after writing and re-writ-
ing the copy. Battling with the wax-
,er and rubber cement, adhering
the copy, cutlines and pictures to
the previously drawn layout- mat is
only a small example of the time
that is put into the publications.
Staffers can often be found in
Room 5-102 minutes before a dead-
line, still in the process of ordering
the pictures, which doesn't make
the photographers very happy!
"The first deadline we had some
problerlps but after that we got
everything worked out and we
worked as a group," said Rhonda
Brown, yearbook assistant editor.
"There's a lot of hassles between
the members because we're all
supposed to be doing certain things
and it takes a lot of patience, but
that comes with the job and it
takes a lot of growing up," said
There was a definite attitude
change after the first nine weeks
when staff members realized that
journalism was far from an "easy
One thing the staffs had in com-

Media Science class I
English credits seemed to be a dime
a dozen. Classes ranged from English to
Debate to Introduction to Journalism.
However, one credit students some-
times forgot about was Media Science.
Media Science consisted of more
than checking out books to students,
it was a study on the function of the
According to Cathy IVlonarez, lVledia
Science was a helpful class. "Since I
took it, l've learned a lot about books
and finding the ones I need."
Approximately seven students were
working in the class each hour. There
were also library aides, who filed and
checked out the books.
Besides checking out and filing the
books, students also learned how to
use the card catalog, the magazine
periodicals and issued audio-visual
aids to teachers.
Also the class was required to do
a nine-week project. The students
worked on anything from a book
report to making a slide show.
Of course there were students who
worked behind the counter, what one
usually pictures a librarian to do. How-
ever, instead of having students check
an overdue list, they were given person-
al notices by library aides.
Although the library was sufficient-
ly staffed, some students still insisted
on not checking out books. "lt was
always helpful if students checked
out the materials , instead of just
taking them," said Gladys Niles.
Whatever reason for entering the
library, there were always knowledge-
able people there to help.
"We helped alot of people who were
not familiar with the library," said
lVIonarez. "It felt good to be able to
give them a hand in finding what they

Dick teaching has been a satisfying career,

was the key. "I enjoyed individual helping,

Learning lab was broken down into three
basic areas of study, Learning Disabilities
ILDI, Personal and Social Adjustment IPSAI,
and high level Educational Mental Retarda-
tion. Of all these classes together a total of
18 students were allowed to take them.
Students are allowed to take up to four
hours a day of Learning Lab, spending the
rest of the day in regular classes. Their major
tests from regular classes are taken in the
Learning Lab area, so they have more time,

Teaching in this area consisted of more
than just instructing a class: it included a
close student-teacher relationship, also certain
other teaching techniques that they covered
included remediation, to improve student's
skills, tutoring, to help students with prob-
lems in regular classes, and adaption, when a
learning lab teacher helped a regular teacher
with material for teaching the special student.

although Ramirez emphasized speaking. Stud-
ents also studied Spanish, speaking countries,
cultures, and other locations around the

Annette Whillock, French teacher, used her
own teaching technique. She helped the class
as a whole and then met individually with
students who wanted or needed extra help.
"lt bothered me to have a student not under-
stand," said Whillock, "Language is acc-
umulated, what you Iearn one week, you're
expected to remember."
Whillock stressed grammar, but she also
wanted her students to understand French
holidays, songs, and foods. The students
learned to know the location of cities and
things to see if they ever' traveled abroad.
"A language isn't learned over night,"
explained Whillock, "I encourage students
to take several years of a language so they'lI
feel that they know it, and understand it."
Whillock's technique seemed to have work-
ed. The French class was moved to a bigger
room, and more students enrolled in French
compared to previous years.
For both groups of teachers it took a lit-
tle extra effort to teach students something
they hadn't yet learned through their school
years, but with a little extra time and under-
standing, they found teaching techniques to
enhance their specialized areas of teaching.

The scientific approach
"lt was a messy job dissecting
frogs," said Terry Palmer. Even so,
Biology instructors, Bud Akin and
Cindy Bogart felt that students
enjoyed dissecting frogs more than
any other lab assignment. Students
in Bogart's class also did a unit on
the nervous system, gathered
information to make a family tree
and tested their blood types. Bogart
felt that students took the class
because they wanted to, and there-
fore, had a fairly good attitude
about the class. Akin, however,
felt for the most part, student
interest was very little. "They take
Biology to meet their requirement
and that is the last they ever want
to hear of it," he said.
To graduate from NHS, a stud-
ent is only required to take one
credit of science. "Often General
Science students will consider it
their final science course," said
lVlarty Kaufman, General Science
Kaufman also taught Introduc-
tion to Physical Science. She said
students really enjoyed the sludge
test, a unit in which students test
substances for characteristic prop-
erties and then learn how to sep-
arate the mixtures. Kaufman also
felt students had good attitudes
about their work.
"l like the experiments we do
that apply to our environment,
like the food we eat and the liq-
uids we drink," said Amy Buller.
Nadine Dolezal used Learning Acti-
vity Packages this year in Applied
Chemistry because it dealt with a
variety of substances encountered
in everyday living.
Students dissected a hot dog,
discovered the calcium content
in milk and experimented to decide
what was in aspirin that could
cause stomach upset. "College
bound students will pick up on
Chemistry," said Dolezal.
Kangaroo Court was in its tenth
year with Chuck Engel and was
still a successful form of trady pun-
ishment for his Chemistry and Phy-
sics students. "Seven out of ten
students will choose Kangaroo
Court," said Engel, "because of
peer pressure." Engel received the
Outstanding Young Educator of the
year award in the district this year.
Aviation, taught by Kaufman,
was a ground school study of
flight. "Students study airplane
instruments and systems, airports,
meteorology, navigation and com-
munications by radio," said Kauf-
man. "l wanted to learn more
about the weather," said Bobbie
O'Toole, "because I would love to
be a meteorologist."
"Zoology is something different
from all the other science courses,
said Lori Ensz. "Zoology has been
thrown from one teacher to the
next," said Bogart, "No one has
pushed the program but it could
be built into a 'good class." Zoology
students spent about two-fifths
of their time in lab dissecting
sharks, pigs, cats and pigeons,
and the other three-fifths was
spent listening to lectures.
Bogart also taught Life and
Death Science. Students took field
trips to the crematory, funeral
home, cemetery and the nursing
home. Guest speakers were invited
to the class occasionally.
Physiology, taught by Akin, was
the structure and function of the
human body. Students worked
quite a bit in the lab, and second
semester they dissected a fetal pig.
The general attitude of most
students and teachers was positive.
Teachers felt that students took a
science class because they had a
real interest in the class itself and

Meeting math needs
"We did not try to meet each student's needs, but
emphasized they meet requirements we set upon them,"
said Clarence Niles, head of the math department.
Students met their needs from the wide range of
math classes in anyway they wanted to from the
basics like General lVlath, Algebra, Geometry and
Advanced Algebra to Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry
and Pre-Calculus for college bound students.
"We hoped that students gained information that
will help them in the future here at NHS or in college,"
"I met my needs and benefited myself because
it helped prepare me for college and improve the basic
mathematic skills that I already know," said Jana
For the students that are more mathematically in-
clined there was the annual math contest held here, on
Next year the math teachers are hoping for a Com-
puter Science class.

Past affects future
In history social studies classes, teachers tried to
relate to students how the past affects us now and
how it will affect us in the future.
Charlie Triggs, teacher of International Relations
and Economics said, "You try to get students to look
at things in the past and relate them to what's hap-
pening now or what will happen in the future."
"lt's hard to function without the knowledge of

structor Phil Scott described as, "The study and

overview of different types of government today with
an emphasis on the American system."
Scott also taught Psychology which is, "The study

feeling find out other kids may have the same," said

DENNIS FRIESEN-CARPER I I
directs Les Chantes in pre-
peration for a concert.
NI-IS welcomes back Carper
In years past is was an unheard of thing for a college graduate to go
back and teach in his alma mater. In these days it's not particularly com-
mon-place but it does happen more often, even at Newton High School.
Dennis Freisen-Carper, vocal director, was one such teacher. He atten-
ded Newton High School between 1967-1971. Last year he began teach-
He enjoyed already knowing his fellow faculty members and many of
his students. As he put it, "It was a little bit strange to be working with
former teachers. But now that I've been at it a while I enjoy it and I en-
joy the students very much." He also commented that it had been easier
to teach during the '80 school year. He attributed this to the fact that
they were already aware and used to his style.
Over the years many things have changed. When Friesen-Carper was in
high school classes were still held in the old building, now Santa Fe IVlid-
dle School. The vocal department had to fight the noise of Broadway
because the windows had to remain open or the students would bake.
lVIore significantly the personalities of the instructors had changed some
what. Friesen-Carper felt more comfortable with last years staff. But he
said it could be due to his having been on the other side of the desk.
Another change he saw was that the level of performance has risen since
he was in high school. This he felt was boosted by the fact that Newton
had always had a standard and reputation for excellence. Therefore, the
students as well as the teachers had high ambitions. "I would like to do
wellin singing and would like to sing in Railaires sometime," said Cindy
Goertzen. "His expectations were too high for his first year," said IVlike
Schmidt. "He expected us to act like his college people had last year. He
assumed we knew all about music theory and could sight read and learn
better than we had been doing."
As for the future, Friesen-Carper wanted to see several changes. He felt
that choral technique should have been taught at an earlier age. He not-
iced some things that he taught juniors and seniors which they should
have learned as freshmen. He hoped that the vocal department could
change its image some what and get more male students to take part in
With the overall program Friesen-Carper was very pleased. Some groups
got off to a shaky start and had some understandable problems. He felt
they could have been related to some individuals loyalty to the former
teacher. Because he felt this to be the reason, he waited for them to set-
tle down and they did. When everything got ironed out several electric
performances were given.
According to Friesen-Carper his most gratifying experience "was having
the students accept me." "Having a new teacher always takes some getting
used to but I felt he was a real good one. He knew a lot and helped us in
learning music as well as in singing it better," said Goertzen.
Hard working and prepared
The music department provided an extra special experience for interest
ed students, "most of our students are those that need a little extra any-
way," said Gerald Kiger, orchestra director.
Kiger felt that the high school musical experience provided training
to students that they would use after high school, as there are over
4,000 community orchestra's looking for players. He felt that the students
at Newton High School had great potential, they were bright, hard
working and very well prepared.
He particularlly enjoyed working with the full orchestra because he
enjoyed the instrumentation and wider variety of selections.
The larger selection and harder degree of music was the basic purpose
of Wind Ensemble. This group gave more advanced players a chance to
play more individually. Along with the individual playing came respon-
sibility. Not only in attitude and punctualness but in preparation of the
music. "You want to play and sound the best you possibly can. If you
play wrong notes they're heard by everyone," said Christy Grant, junior.
The musicians in stage band had a more casual appearance that came
from the fact that in the history of stage band, jazz was allowed to be
played only in barrooms. The music itself was loose and laid back, it in-
dicated a casual and easy appearance.
In this laid back style students learned many special techniques and
used a different range of instruments. Instruments like the soprano sax-
ophone and guitar were used. The players learned to bend notes and to
do glissandos. "Really anything goes as long as its musical," said Toews.
An extra curicular activity for wind players was Pep Band. This group
met mostly before school an 7:20 a.m. The members were as dedicated
to this group as they were to all their performing groups. Most students
agreed that they participated in Pep Band because it was fun and got them
away from concert music.

Years of practice and work
Marching Band and Symphonic Band were more than just another class.
Since fourth grade, members of the band have been playing their instru-
Over the years, the students learned, worked and practiced together
until they reached their goals to be a band member. lt was no easy task
to be a band musician. Rather it took hard work.
Everyone who went to football games recognized the Nlarching Band,
but what about Symphonic Band, what does it do? Symphonic means "a
full instrumental coverage," said Francis Toews. lt was the concert band
and the band material if used was symphonic.
Nlarching Band was the first nine weeks of school. The students
switched second semester' to Symphonic Band.
The bands traveled for contests to Kansas University and Wichita State
University. They also had a recreational trip to Worlds of Fun in Kansas
However, improving was work too. During Nlarching Band, students had
7:30 a.m. practices and often had to put up with unsatisfactory weather
conditions. But members felt it was worth it. "lt was like anything else, I
had to work to keep up with everyone eIse," said Friday.
Although most members of the band have been performing together
throughout their high school career, Kevin Engel was a newcomer and a
drum major. Even though he was at a new school, he inspired the band.
According to Bobby VanHorn, "Kevin really gave the band a good inspira-
tion. He was a good asset to the band."
There are different elements that make up a good Marching or Sym-
phonic Band-practice, a good director and dedicated members. However,
the main asset the group had was the drive to work together to make

Art is often used to enhance a
student's personality by the lines
they make and create. However,
one must be taught, as well as have
a talent and feel for art.
The talent of teaching this year
came from three teachers: Larry
Preston, Jeralyn Hill, and Houston
Devins only teaches one hour at
the high school and then goes to
Santa Fe Middle School the rest of
the day. But the others are here the
People often think art is some-
thing you are born with, but for
Larry Preston, it was the shortest
line at college enrollment.
Preston started out wanting to be
a math major, but on the day of en-
rollment, he found himself standing
in the longest line waiting to enroll
in math classes. After an hour and
still a long line, Preston decided to
try a shorter line. The shortest line
was the art line. After taking a few
art classes, Preston became inter-
ested in art and stuck with it.
After being a student teacher in
Oklahoma City, Preston came here
and has been here for 18 years as an
Although the only mathematics
Preston seems to do these days is
counting who's absent, adding up
grades and keeping track of when
the next art show is. He doesn't
seem to mind. In fact, he said, "I
love teaching art or l wouldn't be
in it." He also said, "l love the free-
dom and variety in art."
While Preston's interest came
later in life, for Hill it was some-
thing she couldn't get rid of.
This year was HilI's first year
teaching. Like Preston, Hill wasn't
going to teach art. After getting a
degree in psychology, she took
classes in speech therapy. But her
"interest" in art just wouldn't
leave. So she took one art class,
then another, and so on, until all
she was taking was art.
Hill hopes to someday teach
"special people" art with therapy.
But for now, she feels it's "reaI
enjoyable to teach here. l like it a
lot and the kids really try."
Art seems to truly enhance our
art teachers even though they
started out with other ideas.

"Instead of working with books all the time, it

some new sports," said Barb Hanke. -

Outside of the gym itself, some of the activities
students were involved in were tennis, running,
archery, flag football and softball.
Gym class was required for freshmen and sopho-
mores. However, there were those students who en-
joyed the break from hitting the books for a solid
class period. U
"lt was just a good chance to get out of a class-
room atmosphere," said Lisa Okle.
Whether students spent the hour running laps,
shooting Iayups, doing pushups or hitting the bull's
eye, it was more than locker room blues, it was a
break from the classroom blahs.

A new addition was added to the
Home Economics Department in
1979. This course was called Home
Economics Related Occupations
H.E.R.O. was organized to in-
form senior students of different
job occupations related to Home
Economics. The students spent two
hours daily studying job related
skills in the classroom.
"We also kept a diary of how we
spent our money, kept working
schedules and learned all sorts of
things about jobs," said Lisa
In addition the class took several
field trips looking at job oppor-
tunities in the Newton vicinity.
The out-of-town trips included
going to Wichita, Hutchinson and
Moundridge visiting different in-
In the afternoon, students were
involved with various jobs, some
keeping their summer jobs and
others found jobs with the assis-
tance of Gay Grose, H.E.R.O.
"There's quite a variety of
occupations being offered, ranging
from jobs at Dillons to Friendly
Acres," said Gay Grose.
A student, Rochelle Schmidt,
said, "You learn a lot about jobs in
this class, as well as receiving credit
while working at your job."
"This course involves a lot more
opportunities for the student look-
ing into a Home Economics
career," said Gay Grose.
For those who weren't seniors,
a variety of other courses were
offered. Maridene Akin taught

Preparing a student for the
business world was the main goal
for the business classes.
Bookkeeping gave students a
basic example of accounting, while
Personal Finances' main emphasis
was on budgeting and record
keeping. Introducing a student to
investments and stocks and bonds
was also included.
Business Law dealt with laws
that effect people. "lt's not 100'Xi
business oriented, though," said
Leonard Ellis, first year teacher of
Business Law. Students studied
crime in society and visiting a trial
in session was on the agenda.
Corporations and partnerships
include legal agreements such as
contracts, and students became
acquainted with each of these.
"It seems like everyone else
knows how," said Mike Schmidt,
and I though I'd need it for later on
in college." Whether or not every-
one else knew how, typing classes
seemed just as popular as ever.
"I wanted to learn how to type
reports," said Robin Martens. Be-
ports, as well as manuscripts,
business letters and business forms
Shorthand and notehand skills
were put to good use in classes
where taking notes was essen-
tial in receiving a good grade. "It
helps in finding a good clerical
job," said Marva Hiebert, "and
I use it a lot in classes for lectures."
An old class under a new name is
called Introduction to Data Proces-
sing, previously called Office Mach-
ines. Larry Barnhart instructed his
students on the operation of cal-
culators, word processing machines,
and the basic function ofa micro-
computer. The micro-computer was
purchased this year from Radio
Shack. Students learned computer
programming and even enjoyed
playing backgammon, which was
recorded into the computer.
To qualify for Distributive Edu-
cation, "one must have an interest
in business and in the area of re-
tailing," said Leonard Ellis. D.E.l
is an introduction class for juniors.
Running a cash register, designing
displays and preparing advertise-
ments were just some of the pro-
jects the students became familiar
with. "D.E.I wasa very educational
course and helped open the doors
to a better future," said Shawn
Distributive Education II was ba-
sically a take-off from D.E.l. The
class, made up of seniors, worked
in hand with the club. Stu
spent one hour in the class
and received two hours cred
holding a job. Leonard Ellis,
with the students' employer,
evaluated the student on the job to
determine his grade. D.E.ll also
worked on advertisements. Gath-
ering information, designing the
layout and displaying the ad to the
KANSAN, was all a part of the
students' job. D.E.I and D.E.ll
students developed leadership skills
for business management.
Developing business skills was
the goal for Joanne Supernois'
class. Office Training students were
introduced to the business field
and Office Education students were
sent into the business world.
Office Education is made up of
strictly seniors. Supernois inter-
viewed her students at least twice
and then she selected the right
girl for the right job.
O.E. girls spent two credit hours
a day in the classroom and then re-
ceived two credits for their job.

People with long, strange looking aprons on,
wore some type of green headgear that covered
their eyes, while strange, high-pitched wails echoed
throughout the room. This wasn't1a scene from "Star
Trek" nor "The Black HoIe" but it was a common
occurrence in the shop room of the Woodworking
Francis Funk was the teacher and felt the class
was fairly popular, because students enjoyed what
they did. "IVlost of the students probably won't
go into the industry dealing with woodworking, but
they did get to work with many different kinds of
tools," said Funk.
ln the class, students made things primarily for
themselves or their family. They made fairly simple
things like stocks for shotguns to difficult and intri-
cate grandfather clocks.
However, the atmosphere was a bit more serene
in the Mechanical Drawing classes.
According to Nlaurice Benninga, the lvlechanical
Drawing classes worked mainly on drawing parts
and machinery, not the entire machine. He said the
class was not difficult if the student visualized what
they were drawing in their minds. But he said that
not everyone did well in mechanical drawing be-
cause, "you had to be a perfectionist," and that,
for some, was a major problem.
ln Architectural Drawing the main project was
making plans for their own houses. This took almost
half the year.
Ken Franz taught several metal classes and the em-
phasis was on the study of metal processes, welding,
foundry work and machine operation. Franz said that
shop classes were not easy A's. His Industrial Tech-
nology Class spent half of their time in the textbook.
The students were exposed to electricity, plastics
and drafting, as well as metal work.
"This was just like any other class, students had to
study to get an A," said Franz. ln his classes, there
were 7 required projects and 25 welding projects.
If the required projects were completed before the
end of the year, students put their newly acquired
knowledge to use by making things for themselves,
like plaques and license plates.
"A lot of our students won't go into industry, but
they will have some knowledge in how to operate
machinery and if someone starts talking about a
certain kind of weld, they will be able to join into
the conversation, because they will have had it here,"

From behind the desk, on to the tractor
"Personally, I think I could go work on a farm,
after I graduate," said Anthony McNeil.
"I feel as though I'm qualified . . . I've worked on
every lathe there is, " according to Mark Miller. "I've
already had a job offer from Coleman Company."
Who are these people? Why do they feel so
confident about their future? They participate in
the Vocational Education Department.
Even though the department was a large part of the
school, many students knew little or nothing about it.
Most of the juniors and seniors in the Vo-Ed will
most likely go into fields related to what they .did at
school, for a career.
' Miller, taking Machine Shop estimated that three-
fourths of the students in Machine Shop would go
into industry. There are two classes, each three hours
long, which deal with Machine Shop. In the shop
itself, students made tools for their own use or for
their dads. They also do some small repair work for
people who don't have the time to do it themselves."
lt's good public relations work mostly," Gary Green,
instructor, said "We only charge 31.50 shop charge
and that goes into the club treasury."
There were 1,080 hours of training for the years
worth of classes in Auto Mechanics.
Auto Mechanics was a unique class in that radios
were going, machines running and students climbing
in and out of nearly every kind of car and
confronting every kind of car problem imaginable.
There were only juniors and seniors in Auto
Mechanics as they were a A, "a little m0r9 mawfe
around the equipment," said Leonard Hoffer,
instructor. The first year of the course concen-
trated on the theory aspect of Auto Mechanics with
one day spent in the shop itself. Auto Mechanics,
along with Machine Shop, was a three hour class and
the second year students spent one of those two
hours in the classroom. In the other two hours the
real challenge comes, working their own, friends or
parents car. This was done for 32.50, but Auto
Mechanics, along with Machine Shop, wasn't allowed
to advertise and compete with downtown merchants
for obvious reasons, dealing with price.
The real payment, according to Hoffer, is working
and getting experienceton the cars. Many students
go into automotive related fields after thy leave high
school. According to Hoffer, the State's Vo-Tech
Department would like to see 50 percent of the
graduates of the program get jobs in the automotive
Agriculture is another aspect of Vocational
Education. Anthony McNeill, junior, said the best
part about his class was being able to make his own
tools for farming. Being in the shop was just a small
part of taking Agriculture related classes. McNeil said
that they went into the less conventional, butjust as
important side of farmingp the business side. McNeill
said that they had a simulation game, where they had
to manage an 800 acre farm. It was there where the
full realization of what they were getting into, with
all the little details really hit them. "lt was a good
cIass," said McNeill summing everything up. He
thought that it would be possible after taking four
years of agirculture in high school that he could, with
minimal difficulty, possibly move into his own farm-
Don Molgen summarized how he feels the
purpose of the Vocational Education Department
is, "To make sure the kids can be gainfully employed
when they graduate."

if they didn't go out. Our great

them through victory and defeat.
Our community had great spirit
too. The Booster Club did several
things to up Newton morale. They

"lt wasn't a very good season
and it was disappointing, not only
to me, but to the whole football
team. It seemed to drag aIong,"
explained Jeff Abney, junior, a
varsity football player.
According to Coach Ron Gould,
unfortunately, the scoreboard did
not reflect the effort that the team
put into eacn game. "At Campus
we played a better game although
the scoreboard didn't reflect it in
our favor. We also had a good
game and played well against
The 1-8 record reflected a big
disappointment in itself. However
-Joe Frawley and Pat Torres,
seniors, felt quite different. "The
only disappointment we can see in
the season is that we should have
wont more games and pulled
together more as a team."
There are some explanations for
the season. On one. hand, the
Railers had a tough season. They
faced injuries, tough teams, plus
a-tough schedule and they had a
few experienced players. There
were 14 seniors that went out and
13 returning letterman.
"Of a talent that we had, we
were much better than Ta 1-8
football team," said Rob Vicin,
senior. "We should have had a
But on the other hand, the un-
derclassmen did make up a majority
of the team, Gould replied, "The
underclassman did a super job for
their first year playing varsity."
Robbie Dodd and Chris
Anderson, both sophomores, agreed
they didn't feel like sophomores
when they played on the varsity
football team. They felt just like
Attitude, conduct and dedication
of the team varied quite often at
the practices and games. At the
El Dorado and Hutchinson games,
everyone was excited but when
they played Ark City and Bishop
Carroll it was a totallv different
story. The football team manager,
Greg Rodriguez, said, "They were
enthusiastic in the beginning of the
season at the practices and games.
But when it came time to play,
during the games at the end of the
season they just weren't psyched up
Coach Gould summed up the
attitude of the team when he said,
They played with determination
and pride in the face of adversity."

ln many sports it takes teamwork and
skill to be successful at a particular
game. However for tennis and golf, it fl
takes more than those two assets to be
good, it also takes concentration.
"The highlight of the season was de-
feating McPherson to advance to the
finals at Regionals. But going to state
was the ultimate," said Jayne Hrdlicka.
Upon going to state, the doubles com-
bination of Hrdlicka and Lori Schultz
was .seeded fourth. The duo made it
through the first round, but were elim-
inated in the quarter finals by Ark City,
which the team had beaten before.
"But we were happy the way the
season ended, because we had no idea
in the beginning that we would go to
state," said Hrdlicka.
The tennis team had eight tourna-
ments during the season and their best
tournament against Topeka.
Three of the six team members were
underclassmen. Jody Schmidt was the
only freshman on the varsity squad.
"l was pleased with the season," said
Coach Phil Scott. "There was just no
comparison to last year."
Although the golf team had problems,
the experienced they gained was more
important than their record showed.

Racing the clock
Most of the time when you com-
pete in a sport and return the fol-
lowing season, you know what to
expect because you've had exper-
ience. lt's because of this exper-
ience that you're able to set goals.
"You never know what another
team is going to come up with,
whether they'll have a super team
or a building year. But the kids
know who they want to beat be-
cause of competition in past
years, " said Margie Knupp, swim
This year's Boys' Swim Team
and Cross Country Team set goals
that were personal and basically
dealt with trying to get a better
time during competition. Either
they tried to beat a past record
and make a new one or just tried
to beat their own time.
Another goal of both teams was
to end the season positively and
both teams succeeded at that in
their seasons. Brian Preheim stated,
"l think the cross country team was
successful this year and it should be
extremely successful next year."
Attitudes usually play a big part'
of anything and in both cases it did
just that. Ron Capps, cross country
coach, explained, "The attitudes
were fine, they enjoyed the sport
and worked extremely hard at it."
On the average, every person ran
216.5 miles throughout the season.
The entire team ran 9,528.5 miles.
ln situations like those, a good at-
titude is almost necessary!
"Every year you try to get a
better team than the year before.
We accomplished that goal this year
and improved 'upon ourselves. The
kids worked better as a team. In
year's past, we've been more in-
dividuals and that's great because
it's an individual sport but you
want a team effort and you need
team support," said Coach Knupp.
Matt Hiebert felt that the swim
team as a whole did a fantastic job.
Everyone worked together as a
team and because of this they had
the best season ever. He felt one of
the reasons they had such a good
season was because they met the
goals they had set. But he thought
the main reason for the good season
was that they didn't want swim-
ming to be. thought of as an inferior
sport, and It wasn't.

The young Varsity boys' basketball players
had large shoes to fill,'following Newton's

Under Head Coach Dale Reed, the inex-
perienced Railers did their best, and improved
as the season progressed.
Reed's expectations for his first year at
Newton High School were for a goal orient-
ed and disciplined team.
"I wanted our team to enjoy enough suc-
cess to enter the post season in a positive
manner," Reed said. As head coach he ex-

he heard it was a good school with a good
sports program, a quality administration,
and an enthusiastic student body.
The Junior Varsity players, under Coach
Russell Goering, gained valuable playing
experience as they ended the season with an
Goering said a factor in the J.V. season
was the inconsistency of having different
players each week.
"We had a major problem because some
people were moving off J.V. on to Varsity
all year," Goering commented.
Kevin Staley, junior, said the team's at-
titude was good at the start of the season, but
100 VARSITY BOYS' BASKETBALL
after they lost some players to Varsity, they
had problems filling those positions.
"After the sophomores got used to play-
ing J.V., we started to play better as a team,"
Although the records could have been
better, the young players gained much exper-
ience this season. Thus, the future looks
bright for Railer boys' basketball.

"In the beginning practices were slow, tiring and
extremely hard, but they got easier as the season
progressed," replied Scott Castleman. Although the
sophomore team lost more games than they won they
worked as a team. "The team wasn't big in size
but they were equally talented," said Mike Baugh.

when we took second in the lVlulvane Tournament,
we played Derby for the championship and lost

earlier in the season we had lost to them by 40,"
The freshmen also started their season slow but
pulled it all together towards the end. "The team
felt down because they didn't work together as
a team. We could have done better if we would
have had better coaching last year," said John
Roberts. At the end of the season the players were
working together as a team.

Teamwork and experience were the key factors of winning
this season as the girls basketball teams all had outstanding
The varsity squad had all five starters back for another sea-
son. Their season ended with an 18-4 mark losing to McPher-
son three times and Dodge City once.
The Newton Invitational Tournament was a big disappoint-
ment for the Railers. In the first round they rolled over Derby
75-36. But the second and third rounds were lost to Dodge
City 61-63 and McPherson 40-54. However, the girls finished'
the tournament with fourth place.
Renee Shoger felt the tournament was "a big Ietdown
because we weren't prepared mentalIy."
According to head coach Eric Stiffler, the best game of the
season was against Hutchinson. The Railers defeated Hutchin-
son 55-47 in an AVL contest.
"Hutchinson has always been one of Newton's rivals,"
Stiffler said. "The way we came back late in the game was very
The junior varsity team under assistant coach Dan Randall,
had a 'good year ending 15-2 for the season.
McPherson and Derby were the only ones to upset Newton
but later in the season the Railers defeated both of them.
"Our will to win is what helped us beat the hard teams,"
said Shellie Franz.
According to Randall, "Our intensity on defense brought us
back into games."
Only one team finished its season undefeated. The freshmen
ended 15-0, including a first place finish in their own Newton
Therteam also broke several records along the way. They
shot an average of 58 per cent from the field breaking the old
record by over 10 per cent. Jody Schmidt set the all-time
freshman scoring record with the average of 23.4 points a game.
A new rebounding record was set by Shelly Dicken who averag-
ed 14.3 a game.
Coach Randy Fyler was pleased with the season, the attit-
udes and the hard work the players put in.
"We passed the ball well," said Fyler. "We also played and
worked well together which helped us win."

Though the Railer squad was

Thaw, "if they continue to improve
they should do well in coming
"One of the highlights of 'the
.season," believes Thaw, "was win-
ning the Newton Invitational." This
was a great accomplishment for the
Railers, considering the Newton
Invitational hasn't been won by
Newton in six years
The Railers made a good showing
at Regionals, placing 3rd overall
and sending 10 out of 12 wrestlers
to Su b-State.
Sub-State proved to be some-
what of a disappointment for the
Railers who only placed 5th overall
and qualified five wrestlers for
State. Those who went to State
were Kelby Harrison, Chris Cox,
'Barry lVIcAnulty, Vernon Tolbert,
and Raymond Tolbert.
The State Tournament took
place in Newton. The Railers placed
4th at State. Cox took 2nd, Harri-
son 3rd, Raymond Tolbert 3rd and
McAnulty 4th place.
The Junior Varsity team en-
countered a few problems during
their season-mainly the fact that
they did not have enough people
for a full team. This meant the
Railers had to forfeit almost half of
the weight classes. But this did not
succeed in discouraging the Railer
team. They wrestled aggressively

"The attitudes were all really good and positive,

going to State really topped off the season," said
Alita Rivera, sophomore.
This year for the second year in a row, the
varsity gymnastic team qualified for State. It was
Ran uphill climb all the way for the Flailer team.
They lacked experience and returning lettermen,
but nevertheless they worked really hard and
managed to go to State. "We had a good season
for having such a young team. We mostly had
freshman," said Teena Bolton, senior.
According to Gina Sadowski, the only other
returning senior on the varsity squad, "This
years team did well considering we went to State
without some of our returning lettermen."
The JV team got off to a slow start but managed
to finish strong and kept consistent in the mean
time. They had three meets, placing first in their
Competing against Derby was the highlight and
turning point of the season for the gymnasts and
their coach, Annette Whillock. They not only
placed first at the meet, but they got inspired to
work again and they performed better than they
ever had before.
"I think most of the girls accomplished the goals
they had established for themselves. They had a lot
to learn and they did have a good season for having
such a young and inexperienced team. lt's hard to
be a young team when everyone else has an exper-
ienced team. But they did try and they did work
hard," explained Annette Whillock.
The seasons ended positively for all the gym-
nasts. They went to State and finished at the top in
quite a few meets. "Teena and Gina, both seniors,
consistently placed at all the meets," said head
coach, JoAnn Thaw. ' '
Qualification for State was hard and having a
young team didn't make it any easier. Kay Cherry-
holmes, freshman, commented, "We all had fun
and worked really hard and in the long run it paid
off for all of us."

"l was always in plays in grade
school because l could memorize
lines easily," said Eric Branson,
Branson has been involved in
drama for many years. He started
the summer of his eighth grade year
when he acted in "The Hobbit."
For the past three and a half
years, Branson has spent a lost of
time on drama including directing
He feels drama is the "most time
consuming activity in school."
Besides school plays, Branson
enjoys community acting as well.
"l get to meet new people by
doing out-of-school plays. My fav-
orite play was "Arsenic and Old
Lace" because I had a fun part.
For Branson, drama is mainly
self-motivation, although his
mother has been helpful.
X ' ,
She was always willing to get
him to play practices.
Branson's involvement isn't
limited to the stage. "l've done
everything from acting to tech-
nical directing," recalls Branson.
He doesn't do costumes or set
design because he dislikes it.
As far as makeup is concerned,
Branson does his own.
Although Branson doesn't con-
sider himself a professional actor,
he has been paid for acting. "I've
been paid for doing drama twice,"
he said. According to Branson, the
first time was as a thespian, so the
commission went to the club. The
second time was for technical
direction in "Charley's Aunt."
Branson plans on drama being
a part of his future, but said it
"depends on the breaks."

Patti Herron, 8 puppeteer, has been involved with muppets
and puppets for over two years now, with "Fred" being her
"lVly mom started lpuppetryl and then I got interested,"
said Herron. "Praising Puppeteers" is the group that helped
Herron get her start. She is now a team leader for this group.
Although Herron earns much praise and glory for her help
with puppets, she hasn't earned any commission. "Our group
has been given donations which go towards new tapes or
puppets," recalled Herron.
"I like to teach others puppetry. A lot of people have voice
and personality for puppetry, but not the skill. You need basic
instructions and you can go from there!" said Herron.
As far as community involvement, Herron participates in
church and Girl Scouts. Using puppets, Herron taught camp
safety to the Girl Scouts last year.
Puppetry may seem easy to spectators but "it's not as easy
as it looks! You have to practice," said Herron. So start prac-
ticing you praising puppeteers!

Ever since childhood
Scott Jost has boon an. . .
For Scott Jost, art has been a
continuing interest since he was
old enough to hold a crayon.
As a young child he always
liked to draw pictures.
"We helped encourage him by
valuing the things he did," said
Mary Ann Jost, Scott's mother.
"We would hang his things on the
refrigerator and admire them."
According to Scott he. was
always interested in art, but the
invaluable one-on-one training
didn't come until high school.
Scott said his freshman year was
pretty well structured, more class
oriented. But the last few years'
have been free. Scott picked the
project and the teachers helped
him perfect his techniques.
"High school has been the best
as far as learning different tech-
niques and practicing," said Scott.
Besides practicing, attitude also
plays a large part in being success-
ful in art.
"Scott has a good attitude in
class and is an outgoing person,"
said Larry Preston, Scott's art
teacher. "He enters all the contests
available and is an 'A" student."
As for the future, Scott is
considering becoming an art teacher
or commercial artist for his career.
Preston feels whatever art career
Scott wishes to pursue, he will
have no problem.
But no matter where his future
takes him, his art will always be
a part of him in some way.

For many people winning means
different things. While some consider
winning a stroke of luck, others consider
it a reward for the time and effort
devoted. To Rene Bumgarner running
makes her a winner.
Rene didn't have to work at running
it just came natural. She started running
as a young child in grade school.
"When I was in third grade I lived in
Garden City, and I was always racing and
beating the sixth grade boys. Then when
I was in fifth grade my Dad got me some
spiked track shoes," said Rene.
From grade school to high school
running has been a continuing interest.
Fiene's running abilities have allowed her
to compete in the Nationals, where she
took 13th in the 400 meter hurdles.
She also compiled 26 points at State last
year. She took first in the 110 meter
hurdles, second in the 200 meter
hurdles, fifth in the 100 yard dash and
third in the 200 yard dash.
Getting motivated to run wasn't a
problem for Rene. She enjoyed running
and enjoyed working at it. However she
liked to run with someone else.
"I liked to run with someone else
because then it pushed me more," said
Running will definetely be a part of
Rene's future. Her goal--to someday be
able to be a member of a professional
track team or maybe go to the Olympics.

When David Stoltenburg walked
into his room, he was surrounded by
a cast of friends. They waited for
a chance to be brought to life and to
be their own self at the hand and
voice of their creator, Stoltenburg.
Stoltenburg spent the last couple
of years creating his hopeful future
career as a puppeteer. After seeing
the Trotter Brothers perform, he got
interested and has pursued his cur-
It took anywhere from 10 to 20
hours to create each puppet and it
cost approximately S10 to make
Once the puppets were made,
Stoltenburg spent time creating a
voice and personality for each of
them. He also created stories and
acts which he then taped for shows
he performed in.
He has performed at Newton and
Hesston Nursing Centers, grade
schools and 4-H groups. But for
Stoltenburg it was time well spent,
when he was in front of an audi-
"I liked it when the audience
would go along with the puppets,"
said Stoltenburg. "When I was be-
hind there and the audience talked
to the puppets, it was really neat,"
Having a chance to get in front of
a group and make them laugh, was
what puppetering was all about for
the Newton sophomore.
"I have been to schools with a
100 people in'the audience and it
was neat to have all the kids out in
the audience shouting at the puppets
or answering questions," said Stol-
Puppets weren't his only creation,
he made a regular-size piano out of
wood. For the musical sounds, he
bought bells so it would really work.
"I don't know why I made it. I
guess I just wanted to do some-
His next creation is questionable.
But with Stoltenburg, he plans .to
come up with something a little out
of the ordinary.

For many people in the United
States their dream is to go on a
trip to Europe. But for Jan Reber,
a teacher at Newton High School,
it's not a dream, it's reality.
Reber went to Europe, for the
first time in l976 when the French
teacher, Linda Daniels Davis, need-
ed another sponsor to go along on
the trip because of an increasing
amount of interest. Each sponsor
was responsible for six girls and
toured nine European contries
over a period of three weeks during
the summer months.
The trip was sponsored by Inter-
national Education of Denver. Ex-
citement was abundant for the
overseas travels, as they were an-
xious to fly into London. A long
fourteen hours later, the excite-
ment was a bit old, but it was still
there within the group,
One of the many problems that
Reber recalled on her trip was that
the water had a bad taste, and if

you didn't have the right change
for the w.c. iwash closetsl you
were in trouble.
The traveling between countries
was bad because it was all done at
night and by train.
The worst thing for the group
was having to carry their luggage
all day long before getting on the
train to go to the next country.
One of the most exciting things
for Reber was, "One night when we
were asleep, I woke up and found
that we were in the bottom of a
ferry," said Reber.
The scariest thing for Reber was
when they were going through Ger-
many and they saw men holding
machine guns behind a barbed wire
Reber has made the trip to Eur-
ope twice and encourages anyone
to go if they have the chance. She
says she has always had a fantastic
bunch of kids, who got along well
together and were very cooperative.

It s a miracle
Now that the yearbook is finished, I can
'elax, sit back and think of the many experi-
ences that went along with being on staff.
Also, let me say I can catch up on some sleep.
When the year started, I was somewhat
dubious of what was to come. Our former
teacher had left us and we were understaffed.
But we pulled through recruiting staffers and
gaining not only a teacher, but a true friend.
I would like to thank Laura Widmer for
teaching me to care about our book and mak-
ing me so dedicated. Laura, this book
wouIdn't have made it without you. Thanks
for the counseling you gave all of us when we
needed it the most. You were always there
when we needed help or advice.
Also, much praise goes to my staff. One of
the things I'd like to say to you guys is thanks
for sticking it out. I know the going got
rough, but we got tougher and hung together,
making it through the many crises. We
stuck together like a family for the most
part. I believe everyone did care about the
quality of the yearbook and I say that I
appreciate anything that made it just a little
bit better. It was our goal for a great book
and the hard work will pay off as we look at
this book and think of all the hours we spent
writing copy, laying down straight graphic
lines and proofreading again and again to
make it something we can be proud of.
I would like to extend a special thank you
to our photographers. Thanks Kelly, Nlyles,
David, Rick and Doug for the many over-
time hours put in to meet deadlines. You
guys really did work wonders in the dark-
room. Thanks for spending so much time
getting every picture just right. I know we
si l.. rfi.-1.A1a1a7 1-f' V' 157--
didn't get along all the time, but thanks for
putting up with the editors.
Now I'II move on to say deadlines looked
impossible, but with numerous worknights
the staff pulled through. Believe me, I won't
forget worknights that lasted into the wee
hours of the morning. It seemed those nights
after a certain time we all went a little crazy,
but it was fun. We had a Christmas deadline
complete with "GooberbaII Christmas" and
CaroI's Chipmunk Christmas records. And
we mustn't forget Julie Andrews' voice drift-
ing through the haze in our minds at two
o'cIock in the morning. I'll definitely not
forget our all-nighter. I'm still trying to
catch up on the sleep I lost. Thanks for
everyone's contribution. I don't remember
when l've ever laughed so hard at six a.m.
after driving through near-blizzard conditions
on a Druber's run. Sue, Carol and Laura,
thanks for putting up with me that night or
should I say morning? We might think of it
and say "oh-no," but you have to admit
it was an experience. And the experiences
Through all of the experiences, the staff
and I tried to make the 1980 RAILROADER
the best yearbook to come out of NHS. A lot
of hours were put in to make the yearbook
top-notch and reflect the year as it was. We
hope everyone likes the yearbook as much as
we enjoyed creating it.

a term passed
As the school year comes to an
end, we recall memories of the term
For some of us the memories
might be of academic achievement,
extracurricular activities, sports, or
participation in clubs. Other mem-
ories might be of our first year or
last year in high school, while some
might recall Winter Sports Week,
a big game, dances or that special
person they met. Maybe some are
relieved school is over and glad
they made .it through the year in
We studied together, ran around
with each other and shared the ex-
perience of high school life We
had our good times and bad but
we will remember the events that
made us laugh or cry All of these
memories will last forever pre-
served in our minds for the rest of
our lives We have been Makin
Tracks all year but we will con-
tinue lnto the future.
