Varsity player Kletz said, "Because

think we played a better game."
After the Homecoming game, the
alumni met in the cafeteria and had a
coffee hour. The Alumni Association
sold concessions during the
Homecoming game and also entered a
car in the parade. In addition, the
alumni provided the queen with her
permanent crown, said Miss Mary
Ryder, Homecoming sponsor.
Homecoming week ended with the
dance on Saturday, Oct. 23. The
dance lasted from 8:30-11:30 in the
cafeteria. The entertainment was a
live band, "Patty and the Panic."

Homecoming, Komnick said, "I was glad to
get in the spirit and help everyone else get in
the spirit to cheer the girls on."
Even though there were difficulties
in organizing the Homecoming ac-
tivities, the tradition lived on.
Each class prepared a float of its
own, with the juniors winning in the
class competition with the theme of
"Ring Out the Crimsonsf'
Some clubs also participated in

According to Ms. Mishler, the play
is a serious drama which has parallels
in the McCarthy period when a
government committee investigated
many citizens who McCarthy believed
were Communists. As in Salem, there
was no truth in the accusations and
many peoples' lives were ruined.
Very few of the people in Salem
had the courage to stand up for the
truth, and those who did were
destroyed, she said.

The Follies are an annual event
held each year around Valentine's
Day to give students a break from the
usual weekly routine. The Follies in-
cluded a run called the Cupid Classic,
the Sweetheart Dance, a Bloodmobile,
Vocal Valentines and carnation
The Cupid Classic, a run in which
anyone could participate, started off
the events. There were two divisions
in the run: a three-mile race and a
one-mile race. The run took place on
the streets west of school.
In the three-mile run, Jeff Lyle l10l
took first place with a time of 16:58.
In the one-mile race, Eric Hannel C101
came in first with a finishing time of
5:49. The winners received
medallions, Road Runners sponsor
Fred Walk said.
Next in line was the Sweetheart
Dance. The sophomore Sweetheart
Court consisted of Rachel Collie, Kris
Cook, Debbie Gaines, Wendy Wertz,
Todd Bliss, Kurt I-Ioeferle, Chris
Seifert and Darien Soldner. The king,
Todd Block, and queen, Kathy Lin-
neman, were crowned at the dance.
Vocal Valentines are starting to
become a tradition at NCHS. There
were six songs sung including: "Baby
Face," "Let Me Call You
Sweetheart," "Put Your Head on My
Shoulder," "Bosom Buddies" and
"Together" The choir raised S700
which went to the choir fund, accor-
ding to Director Audrey Vallance. The
best-seller, she said, seemed to be
"Let Me Call You Sweetheart."
The Bloodmobile, another yearly
activity, was held on Valentine's Day.
Student Council, which sponsored the
blood drive, had a goal of 125 pints
which was exceeded. Two hundred
and ten students gave blood, which
went to the Red Cross Blood Center
in Peoria and from there to hospitals.
Flowers have always been a big
part of Valentine's Day, and Council
made sure they appeared here by sell-
ing carnations. Approximately 350-
400 carnations were sold, according
to Sponsor Ramona Sanders, who ex-
plained at least S200 of the sales went
to the heart fund.
One participant in the Cupid Classic was

the Speech Team and members of
Mrs. Peg Kirk's Speech class were
ready to present the morning an-
nouncements to the student body.
The main objective of the an-
nouncements is to bring the news to
students and faculty in a business-like
fashion, Mrs. Kirk said.
In preparation for reading the an-
nouncements, students learn the im-
portance of vocal control, vocal varie-
ty, speaking slowly and improving
their energy, Mrs. Kirk explained.
Teachers submit what they want to
be said in the announcement to the of-
fice where they are approved by the
administration. However, late entries
often caused problems for the an-
nouncers because they were sloppily
written, said announcer Lori Ar-
Other problems the announcers fac-
ed were laughing and mispronouncing
words. Sally Davis 1111 said she had
the most trouble pronouncing the
name of Normal's sister city,
Asahikawa. Arrowsmith said when

she started laughing, she would push
down a button on the phone which
would disconnect the sound.
Another problem the announcers
had was limiting their personality so it
didn't dominate the information being
read. Jack Sayre 1121 and Ed Ulbrich
1121 were temporarily dismissed from
their announcements because they
allowed too much of their personality
to reflect in the announcements, said
Many students felt that the an-
nouncements were enjoyable when
they were given personality. Ulbrich
said he felt more people listened and
enjoyed them when more personality
was added, instead of the same
One advantage of reading the an-
nouncements, other than getting to
class ten minutes late, was the career
opportunities. Davis and Brian Jones

munications, while Davis plans to

Budget problems plague Unit
Because of expected money pro-
blems in the 1983-84 school year, the
Unit 5 School Board had the difficult
task of cutting the budget at the
February 21 meeting. There was tur-
moil while teachers worried about los-
ing their jobs, students wondered how
many school activities would be
eliminated, and organizers worked to
get a referendum passed.
The major reason for cuts was a
projected loss of state aid which
would result in a 32.2 million school
deficit by 1985. To make up for the
deficit, the district cut the budget by
31.2 million and proposed a tax
referendum to make up for the rest,
according to Unit 5 administrators.
The referendum was passed by the
public on April 12 and should bring in
an additional 31.38 million.
However, the increased tax money
was not enough. To save an estimated
31.2 million, the School Board passed
many cost-cutting measures.

went on to win it. Two of the

"We were a young team, but did

'Dedicated, loyal Ironman' says farewell NCH
Coach Gene Masters
After 38 years of teaching at
NCHS, Coach Gene Masters has
retired as head of the Business
Department and Track and Cross
Country coach. His talents produced
more than 30 State qualifiers in track,
and all of his work here will not be
Mr. Masters said he promised
himself he would quit teaching the
day he didn't enjoy it anymore,
however, he is quitting earlier than
Of course, track has been a major
portion of his job. In all of Coach
Masters' many years of coaching, one
event stands out in his mind as the
best race he ever coached.
Most memorable event
It occurred during the 1969 Normal
Relays. The top-rated team that year
was Alton, and NCHS was only fair.
Coach Masters talked with his team
before the race and tried to pep them
up. The runners went out so excited
that they ran their best times ever.
Then came the big race. At that
time Alton's Bo Scott was the best Mi
miler in the state. NCHS ran Bruce
Jones against him. In the race both
ended in a virtual tie.
The Trackettes said Bo Scott won
it, although many spectators thought
NCHS' Bruce Jones won it. But
Coach Masters went with the Tracket-
tes' ruling even though it hurt.
Coach Masters has been interested
in sports since his own high school
He graduated from NCHS in 1934
after attending four other high schools
in Carlinville, Pittsfield, Rushville, and
Warrensburg. His father was a
salesman, so moving was a way of life,
58 Coach Gene Masters
While in high school, Coach
Masters participated in basketball,
track, baseball, band, chorus, speech,
and had the lead in several plays. He
was especially active in sports, setting
four different track records before
From 1934-1938 he attended ISNU
IISUJ majoring in physical education
and business. He was also very active
in sports there and set one track
record. He set a long jump record of
23 feet, W inch, which lasted 25
years, he said.
After graduating from ISNU, Coach
Masters taught basketball and softball
at Carthage, Indiana for two years.
For another two years he coached
football and track at Georgetown,
"lf you barked, they bowed"
In June 1942, Mr. Masters was
drafted into the service and went into
Officers' Candidate School from
which he graduated as a second lieute-
nant. It was there he learned "lf you
barked, they bowed," he said.
As a second lieutenant he was one
of three men in the country chosen to
go to school to learn to teach
parachute landing. He said that
although he trained paratroopers, he
never had to jump himself.
In 1947 after his military service,
Mr. Masters was asked if he wanted a
job at NCHS by one of the business
teachers. He had planned to go to
East Moline to teach typing and coach
track, but decided he might as well
talk with the Unit 5 superintendent.
When the superintendent offered
him a salary which was less than the
offer at East Moline, he got up to
leave. Mr. Masters was asked how
much he wanted, and he told the
superintendent. He was hired that
day. In that first year, he founded a
tradition that continues today, the
NCHS has been an important part
of the entire Masters' household. Not
only did Mr. Masters himself graduate
from here, but so did his three kids,
Pam, Kelly, and Gregg, and his
Mr. Masters said he is grateful for
his family's support through the
years. "All my success I owe to
family," he explained.

The organization of the Trackei
was one reason he was inducted in

Mr. Masters' trademark, his
socks, came from his involvemen
track. He was in charge of the Nor
Relays and was naturally running f
one end of the field to the of
organizing the event. It became
possible for people to find him, so
began to wear a red shirt to stand
in the crowd.
Eventually this became such a tr
tion that his wife brought his red s

One of the Coach's former athl
is Mr. Jerry Hayden, NCHS
teacher. He described his for
coach as a "dedicated, true, loyal In

always said what was on his mind."
Coach Masters' many awards
clude his being named "Honor
Referee" for the 1983 Boys' Clas:
and AA State Final Track and Fi
Meet. This honor was presented a
special ceremony in May.
Mr. Gene Masters' dedication is
vious in his 38 years of service. He
plained his feelings towards NCI

then, and later with the Trackettes, got him

Cagers disappointed by losses
"We did better than our record
shows," Varsity Basketball player An-
dy Liverman said.
The Varsity Basketball Team had a
tougher season than in years past
because of the loss of seven seniors.
This loss caused the Ironmen to go
from last season's record of 20-8,
which included the Regional crown, to
a record of 13-13.
The season was also marked by
several disappointing losses in ex-
tremely close games. The Ironmen
lost nine games by four points or less.
This included two losses to Lincoln by
one and two points and two losses to
Decatur MacArthur by one point.
Jeff Weller 1121 said, "At the begin-
ning of the season, there were some
really close games that we really
didn't want bad enough. After we lost
a few of them, we began to wonder if
we could really win any at all. That
really hurt us."
Several seniors did gain recognition
in the course of the year. Andy
Woodtli 1121 signed a national letter of
intent stating that he would attend the
University of Arizona to play
Woodtli led the Ironmen cagers in
blocked shots with 67. That was 64
more than anyone else on the team.
In addition, Woodtli, along with
Brian Metz 1121, received honorable
mention in the 1983 Associated Press
Class AA All-Star Basketball Team.
Although Woodtli was the team's
tall man, Metz was the strong man. He
averaged over 22 points per game
and scored a personal high of 37
points against Champaign Centennial.
It was Metz's phenomenal shooting
ability that allowed him to lead all ln-
tercity players in scoring. He finished
the year with a total of 582 points,
which placed him 90 points over his
closest competitor, Eric Bridges of

Despite a number of personal suc-

have as strong of a season as in years
past. However, although the team
was weakened by injuries, illnesses
and graduations, the wrestlers still
managed to make respectable show-
ings throughout the year.
"We didn't have as many outstan-
ding wrestlers as in years past, but we
worked hard and that made the dif-
ference," wrestler Dave Von Holten
Heavyweight wrestler Todd Kull
C119 believed that the team's biggest
weakness was in the fact that it was a
rather young team. "When we got
beat, it wasn't because we didn't try
as hard as we could. We got beat from
a lack of experience," he said.
A number of wrestlers made soi
rather impressive gains by 1
season's end. David Poppen Q
finished the year with a regular sea
record of 26 wins, two losses and d

of 24-9g 21 of his wins he got by pil

After four years of varsity wrestl-
ing, Dave Poppen 1121 had his most
successful season ever.
Poppen's successes have increased
dramatically over the years. His
freshman year he rounded out the
season with only four wins and 11
losses. This year in regular season ac'
tion he accumulated 26 wins, two
losses and one tie.
"l'd really like to pull off a 30-win
season," said Poppen. "That would
really be great."

coaching was "seeing the kids apply

Seeing them develop their physical

The most interesting part of
coaching Girls' Softball was seeing her
players dominate every aspect of the
game, explained Coach Berny Chiaro,
The team fought hard in its game
against Peoria Richwoods which
lasted 22 innings. It was finally called
because of darkness after four hours
and 15 minutes. The game marked
the team's only tie.
Five members of the team made
the Intercity All-Star team. They were
Monica Mapel 1121, Jill White 1111, Tif-
fani Schmitt 1111, Stacy Coan 1111 and
Lori Day 110.
The only injury which occurred dur-
ing the season was that Mindy Moore
1121 pulled a hamstring and was off
and on for the remainder of the
Overall, it was the best season in a
long time for the girls' team. Accor-
ding to Coach Chiaro, part of their
success was due to pitchers Coan and
Day, who were both exceptional.
Schmitt, Merna Blair 1121 and White
led the offense with their excellent
batting averages, she added.
Because of their all-around ex-
cellence, Coach Chiaro and her
players hoped for a State berth, which
because of the early end of the year
came after school was out.

Only the NCI-IS Band goes to
Canada via Texas. Texas was the
source of the oranges and grapefruit
used to help finance the trip to
Canada. They began their trip on
June 19 and returned on June 27.
Twice during the year members
could be seen unloading the boxes of
fruit and stacking them in great piles
in the auditorium.
Assistant director Kirby Reese said
that this is not the only way that band
members raised money. Other ac-
tivities such as taking inventory at
Carson, Pirie and Scott Co., counting
cars for a car flow survey, and selling
concessions at the Normal Relays
helped pay for expenses.
The money raised by each in-
dividual was put into his or her own
personal account. This way, the
money that each person made went
toward paying his or her own way,
said Mr. Reese. Anything made
beyond the price of the trip was
returned to the members for
miscellaneous traveling expenses.
In preparation for the big competi-
tion in the summer, the band was in-
volved in various other competitions
during the school year. It placed se-
cond at the ISU and IWU Homecom-
ing parades and also at the Metamora
Band Day. It took third in both the
parade and field competition at the U
of I Band Day.
Mr. Reese said the band had come
a long way during the year and had
"bridged the gap" into a mature band.
There were many expectations go-
ing into the trip. From a director's
point of view, Mr. Reese thought that
the trip would "pull the group
together" and also "be a chance for
the members to get away."
One senior girl summed up most
members' goals for the trip by saying
she wanted the band "to become
more well known and also to have a
lot of fun."

Secretaries prepare for future
Tomorrow's Secretaries Club this
past year consisted of 20 members, 10
of whom were active, according to
club sponsor Mrs. Nancy Lambert.
Meetings were held before school
on the first Tuesday of every month,
with Kelly Loving C125 as president.
There were many objectives to the
club, according to Mrs. Lambert.
"It gives the student a better
understanding of the business world
and will hopefully stimulate interest in
the secretarial profession," she stated.
"Also, it helps develop good work
habits and inspires a high level of com-
petence through a continuing pro-
gram of education after graduation,"
Mrs. Lambert added.
The club members said they en-

Question: What is a Trackette?
Answer: "Oh a Trackette is a girl
who runs and long jumps and stuff for
track," guessed Perry McNamee l12l.
Wrong! A Trackette is one of the
girls who officiates track meets and
performs many necessary tasks.
The Trackettes have been a part of
NCHS for the past 15 or 16 years. Mr.
Gene Masters, Trackette sponsor and
Boys' Track coach, started Trackettes
when NCHS got a new track in 1968
The Trackettes' membership is ap-
proximately 21, but in past years the
membership has reached around 60
Among the duties of a Trackette
are timing runners, picking places and
measuring and running all of the field
events. Scoring is another big job
because in big meets getting the cor-
rect score is very important, accor-
ding to Trackette Amy Webb C121
Along with all of these duties, the
Trackettes work the Cross Country
meets. These meets are usually held
at Fairview Park. Some of the duties
range from timing to standing on a
manhole lacting as a marker for the
runners to go aroundl.
To become a Trackette a girl must
first attend meetings and study a rule
book in order to take a test. If she fails
the test, she retakes the test until she
In addition to taking a test, Tracket-
tes must also wear a uniform that con-
sists of orange pants, white blouse,
black tie and saddle shoes.
"Orange pants are out of date, but
they look good when everyone has
them on," Donna Luallen 1121 said.
Trackettes are a very important
part of the track season. Without
them the meets would be less organiz-
ed and Coach Masters would have
find volunteers to run the meets,
cording to Luallen.
According to Amy Wills i12j,
Masters picks a girl for "Trackette
the Year" every season. This is usi
ly given to a senior who attends al
the meets and meetings and sho

s times change, interest in clubs declines
Ten to 20 years ago clubs were an
integral part of high school life. They
provided social and recreational
outlets, as well as academic or career
pursuits. But as times have changed,
so have the clubs.
NCHS' extra-curricular clubs are
not as popular as they once were, and
some organizations don't really
"The interest and membership in
extra-curricular clubs has decreased
rapidly in the past years," commented
Mrs. Sandy Sasser, American Field
Service QAFSJ sponsor. "Kids are
working more, and they do not have
time to get involved in activities the
school has to offer."
"The economic situation has forced
the students to work," she continued,
so students can't participate in after-
school activities. Mrs. Sasser ex-
plained, "AFS has only eight
members involved tthis yeari, and we
do not have enough members to earn
money for us to bring a foreign stu-
dent to our school." According to
Mr. Joe White, Social Studies Dept.
head, "Kids just don't have time for
clubs." He felt, however, it is impor-
tant for clubs to have an enthusiastic
sponsor and activities students are in-
terested in. "Clubs don't necessari-
ly have to be related to academics, but

Chemistry students pick style they prefer
Pace Chemistry and General
Chemistry have one main difference,
explained Mr. Ken Turner, science
teacher. The approach is very dif-
ferent, but the objectives and goals
are the same since all the Chemistry
classes follow the same outline.
Individualized labs, hands on ex-
perience, and the ability to move for-
ward and progress quickly are some
of the main characteristics of Pace
On the other hand, General
Chemistry students are directed to the
concepts, and lessons are developed
in a traditional fashion, according to
Mrs. Mary McGinnis, teacher.
According to Mr. Turner, Pace
students work out of packets that
have questions and experiments in the
reading and a self test at the end. Pace
gives the gifted students a greater
chance for extra credit, he said.
ln contrast, lectures, discussions
and supervised working are the main
activities in General Chemistry. Mrs.
McGinnis feels that in General
Chemistry. the teacher decides what
extra credit can be done and how
much can be acquired.

When Pace students were question-
ed, most agreed with Terry Eovaldi
1103 that more work is completed with
a teacher conducting the class, but
Pace is more fun because work can be
done in small groups or alone without
an overabundance of supervision.
With completely opposite opinions,
General Chemistry students agreed
with Krista Hedstrom 1121 that a more
structured classroom atmosphere pro-
moted more working, extra reviews
and more completed work.

Teacher turns author
Although a junior college math tex-
tbook might not make the best-seller
list, it can be read widely. Mr. Jerry
Hayden, Math Department head, and
Mr. Howard Davis, Supervisor of Cur-
riculum and Director of Public Infor-
mation, wrote such a book.
"After writing a good lesson for my
class that goes over well, I decided
why not write a book that could be
taught," said Mr. Hayden.
"I like the challenge of teaching so-
meone l don't know" is how he feels
about writing this book for students.
Whenever the two authors got an
idea, they jotted it down so they
wouldn't forget it.
"We work under contract, so if
anything is found incorrect, the
publisher will call us and inform us of
it. Whenever they revise the book, we
will have to fix and correct and update
anything that needs it," concluded Mr.
Hayden' - Cindy Mattson
Mr. Howard Davis, Unit 5 Supervisor of Cur-
riculum and Director of Public Information,
along with Mr. Jerry Hayden, Math Dept.

The juniors and seniors who took

Her dives are constantly rated
highly. Her highest score for a meet
has been 184, which on a scale of
"IO" is an average of "8" per dive.
In Conference competition in 1981-
82, after 11 dives Ramseyer received
a first and a high score of 272.15.
Ramseyer practiced at McCormick
pool, along with the swimmers, for
two hours a day.
In addition, last summer she spent
two weeks at a highly recommended
camp in Indiana. She said, divers prac-
ticed off of six meter and three meter
boards to perfect their forms.
Ramseyer was inspired by her old
coach and teacher, Chris Schuetz, a
former NCHS student who now is on
the ISU Men's Diving Team.
When Ramseyer dives, she feels
her best dive is the back one and a

Some of the success of the Varsity
and Sophomore Football Teams,
whose regular season records were 8-
1 and 9-1 respectively, can be at-
tributed to kicker Brian Junghans 1101,
who played for both teams in the '82
Sophomore Football Coach Jim
Baker felt Junghans did his job well
for the Ironmen as he kicked 27 extra
points in 33 attempts and scored one
"In a game against Decatur
Eisenhower, Junghans came in with
1:59 left in the game and scored an
extra point which broke a 22 point tie
and gave us the win," Coach Baker
The Varsity Football Team was
also aided by Junghans, who com-
pleted 23 out of 26 extra point at-
tempts and scored one field goal of 22
yards. According to Coach Dick
Tharp, he tied the school record for
scoring in every regular season game.
Junghans felt he did a pretty good
job this year, although he admitted
that he could have improved some.
According to Junghans, it was a
real honor to play for both the
sophomore and varsity teams.
"I like playing with the varsity team
because you have a chance of going
to state, but I also like playing with
the sophomores. They've been good
friends of mine for a long time, and I
love winning with them," Junghans
"I have to practice almost every
day, and it's a lot of work. But, I
wouldn't change it for anything."

While most people were sitting at
home or on vacations over the Labor
Day weekend, Mike McCracken C101
and Mike Brunt i12l, along with about
300 other bikeriders, were riding in
the Pantagraph Area Cyclists Ride
Around Corn County CPAC RACCJ.
PAC RACC took place over a
threeday period, which started Satur-
day, Sept. 4, and ended Monday,
Sept. 6. According to McCracken, the
bicyclists could complete up to 215
miles if they finished the entire ride.
The sponsors of PAC RACC were
the "Daily Pantagraph", Beich's Can-
dy, and Vitesse Cycle Shop. These
sponsors set up stands along the route
to refresh the riders.
McCracken's goal was to complete
the 215 miles in the three days given.
He completed the ride in about 19
hours and finished in the top 15.
Brunt also finished the complete 215
Two reasons McCracken rode in
the bike ride were to see if he could
finish it and to meet some new people.
Some of the riders were experienc-
ed and had been on other tours, but
for some of the riders, this was their
first long-distance ride.
McCracken had participated in The
Century Ride of 100 miles, and had
ridden 80110 miles in one day for his
own enjoyment, he said.
The hardest part of the ride for Mc-
Cracken were the hills on the third
day, he said.

Like the mythical Phoenix which
arose from its own ashes, Club 51
rose from the ashes of what was once
Bronco Billy's. Club 51 attracted teens
from all over the McLean County area
for its Sunday evening "Teen Night."
Teen Night became particularly
popular with NCHS sophomores.
Some found that the combination of
loud music, people and dancing made
a very enjoyable evening.
There was no certain dress code at
Club 51. The teenagers could wear
any kind of clothing they felt most
comfortable in. And the effects were

from casual to punk. Dee Augspurger
i12j found that dressing punk was not

However, Michelle Loy l10j, who

She felt that dressing punk was a
Said Loy, "Nobody cares what we
look like. We're totally radical!"
Ann Sutter i101 agreed with her,
"People enjoy being weird." Sutter
backed up her words by wearing a
punk blue and white mini-skirt and an
old white tee-shirt.
Teenagers came to Club 51 for
various reasons. Some came to hear
music which was played live by local
groups. Bands such as "Ace High,"
"The Uptown Rulers," "Kool Ray and
the Polaroids," and "Nobody's Fool"
could often be found up on the stage
at Club 51.
Other teenagers came for the fast
and furious dancing. Anything went
on the large wooden dance floor!
Kathy Kemp i1Oj felt, "The dance
floor is a great place to let out any
built-up steam and go crazy."
Jon Stein i10j commented, "The
dancing here is awesome because
anyone can be as wild and crazy as
they want and no one thinks twice
Dancing was an attraction at Club 51 for
sophomores Ann Sutter, Stacey Simms,
Michelle Loy, Kathy Kemp and Stephanie
Some people went to Club 51 to
get away from any problems they
might have had.

Laura Cole i1Oj agreed, "We can be
wild here and no one bothers us."
Still others went to meet new peo-
ple. Darcy and Darien Soldner i1Oj
went with one thing on their minds
"We came here to meet some
women," they said, and there were
plenty of women land guysj for them
to meet, too.
However, some students stated
that their parents thought Club 51
was a tavern better suited for adults.
Loy commented, "Our parents
think it's a tavern and don't like it
when we come here. But it's a place
just for us."
Tim Poll i12j countered by saying,
"This place is no more a bar on Sun-
day nights than a McDonald's is."
The only drinks Club 51 offered on
Teen Night were 25 cent sodas.
Club 51 also offered a game room
featuring such video delights as "2
xon," "Ms. Pac-Man," "Robot-Trc
and "Donkey Kong." There were f
pool tables which also attrac

However, a disadvantage of living
in a large family, according to Mike, is
that he gets plenty of hand-me-downs,
and he didn't get his own room when
he was younger.
Another positive aspect of living in
a large family is the chance to meet a
lot of new people through family rela-
tionships, Christensen said.
Mary Kniery 1111 said she enjoys liv-
ing in a large family because she
doesn't have to worry about being left
out. Somehow her parents manage to
give each child the love and attention
they need, she said.
She felt a small family would be too
boring for her.
Nationwide interest in the Armed
Forces was reflected even here as
more students chose to enlist. To
prepare for their life after high school,

Senior works behind the scenes
"He will be missed for his depen-
dability and hard-working attitude,"
said Head Librarian Edith McCown
when talking about Bill Steinkraus C121
For instance, in his spare time
Steinkraus was an AV monitor for the
library. He also was a member of the
IMC Club. In addition, he was a
member of the Concert Band.
Steinkraus' favorite hobby was
model trains. In Metals Class he work-
ed on a model train that was 30 inches
In Metals class Steinkraus is cutting metal
down to size for one of his model trains. In
addition, he works in the IMC, as well as
plays in the band.

would cost between S30-S50 to build.
He was also involved in three clubs
that deal with trains. One of these is
the Central Illinois Railroad Club.
Members work on the engine of train
639 located at Miller Park.
Steinkraus was the Board of Direc-
tor for the IVRA flllinois Valley
Railroad Associationl The object of
this club is to go "rail fanning," chas-
ing trains to take pictures.
The third club Steinkraus was in-
volved in was the Central Illinois
Modeling Club. Club members build
replicas of trains and display them. He
was elected asistant editor and pro-
gram director for the club.

ned the money from his part-time
His mother thought he was crazy
' buying the hearse, but his father
dn't really mind. However, neither
his parents will drive the hearse.
Most peoples' reactions concerning
hearse is that it is pretty morbid,
lcolm said, but his friends think it is
un car to have a good time in.
The hearse does not seem to
bother Malcolm, but there are some
bad points. For one thing, the hearse
needs a lot of gas, and it is sometimes
difficult to drive and park.
Malcolm has received many prank
phone calls, but the funniest ex-
perience, according to him, was on
the night he purchased the hearse.
He was driving through downtown
Normal and saw a lady lying on the
sidewalk. Her head was bleeding so
he stopped to see if he could help.
The onlookers asked if he would drive
her to the hospital, but he refused. He
didn't want to get blood in his hearse.

Editor's Note: Because of deadline
problems, we were unable to cover the
death of Anita Turner in the class sec-
tion as we normally would.
The tragic death of Anita Turner
1111 marked the second death in the
Junior Class. Anita Turner died of a
fatal gunshot wound on February 6,
Anita was the daughter of Donald
and Martha Turner, R.R. 12, Bloom-
ington, and was born on October 1,
Although she didn't participate in
any extra-curricular school activities,
she was actively involved in her youth
group at the First Church of God. She
was also a participant in the Big
BrothersfBig Sisters program, said
Mrs. Patty Burmaster, Individual ln-
Some of 'her interests included
roller skating, swimming, and reading
fiction. Because of her love for
animals, she had planned to go into an
animal-related field of study, said Mrs.
Jane Whitman, Special Education
According to Mrs. Whitman, Anita
had an interesting personality and
always tried hard in her classes.
It's the "NCHS People" who made
1983 a special year. And special
events made this year unique in the
minds of some "NCHS People."
For Melinda Creasy 1121 winning
the Junior Miss title will be a
memorable part of the year.
Mike Foster 1101 will remember it as
the year he fell over Anne Doud 1121
while marching at the Metamora Band
For Coach Dick Tharp, Business

football team to the first round of
Alan Lambert 1121, Kara Schlueter
1121, Coleen Prewitt 1121 and Andy
Woodtli 1121 will remember this year
because they received special recogni-
tion from various organizations.
Although these are only a few
memorable moments, almost all
HNCHS People" have their own
memories which made the 1982-83
school year a special one.
