Even though there were changes in this year's juniorfsenior powderpuff game, it was still held. The senior girls defeated the juniors, 18-12. The Senior Class float, "Coffin up a Vic- tory", was assembled with the help of Sheri Lettner t12l. The float was assembled at Beth McNei1's house. 6 Homecoming Pat Murphy C112 and Brad Dunlap 1112 tried their hand at cheerleading at the juniorfsenior powderpuff game, as well at the Homecoming assembly on Friday. Waiting eagerly for the next play in the powderpuff game between the junior and senior girls are Teri Cunningham l12l and Jana Nowers l12l. This year the game presented no problems. Contributing to the spirit of the Homecoming assembly are the members of the pom squad and the band. Giving helpful advice to quarterback Mike Stauffer 1121 at the Homecoming football game is Varsity Football Coach Dick Tharp. This advice must have been good for the lronmen won the game, 51-23. 1 Homecoming tradition continues Homecoming weekend officially started on Friday, Oct. 22, in the afternoon with the parade. The parade followed a different route, however, due to construction on College Avenue. Unlike last year when the lronmen lost to Springfield Lanphier, 21-27, Normal triumphed over the Jackson- ville Crimsons, 51-23, in the Homecoming game. Blocking by the offensive linemen, Scott Kletz 1121, tackle, J. D. Olsen 1111, guard, and Tom Ewen 1121, end, made it easier for the lronmen to defeat the Crimsons, said Todd Kull 1111. Darin Spaniol 1121 tied the school Band members Kristy Childers 1121, Karen Reeser 1121 and Ruthann Stuart 1101 lead the band through the Homecoming parade. Parkside Jr. High and Chiddix Jr. High also marched in the parade. record with a 39-yard field goal, while Rob Mitchell 1121 and Rory Tharp 1111 each scored on 60-yard runs. Varsity player Kletz said, "Because of the enthusiasm of the crowd, I 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." - Jana Nowers Wendy Rees Homecoming 7 The fighting lronrnen prevail again in the first half of the senior girls' skit.

However, there was some controversy over the skit. Unlike other boys. Kraig Komnick l12l and Andy Woodtli C121 put on their mini-skirts for Homecoming, Komnick said, "I was glad to get in the spirit and help everyone else get in the spirit to cheer the girls on." 8 Homecoming l l 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 float building, and the Future Farmers of America won in this category. The Grand Champion in the float contest W .si was the German Club. Problems with last year's powd puff game brought about new rul from the administration. Due to t roughness in last year's game, thr teacher referees had to make s that no bad behavior took place, std Mrs. Mueller. Other new rules included requiri: two coaches per team, with each tea allowed two practices under t coaches' supervision.

Reverend Hale explained that all the ladies who were running in the woods late at night will be tried as witches. Rhys Lovell l12l por- trayed the Reverend. 10 The Crucible" "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller was presented Oct. 15-16 in the NCHS auditorium. The director, Ms. Diane Mishler, along with assistant director Mike Wells l12i, technical assistant Dorothy Cox 1121, presented the story of the Salem witch hunts. 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. Connie Tripp l10i stated, "It was fun to do a play where we went back in time." Doug Freeman llll, who was a member of the audience, commented, "I thought it was very interesting, and they did a good job of presenting it."

In the cafeteria money collection, the Senior Class collected the most money overall with the sophomores losing, said Mark Voss i12l. Mrs. Marvis Dickinson's homeroom German class collected the most money of all the homerooms and won a cake. The students in charge of United Way week were Mark Voss, Student Council president, Dee Augsburger 1121, School Service committee, and Beth Schieber l12l, Fund Raising committee. Voss said United Way week was a total success. Students and faculty donated 351,500 to the United Way. Compared to last year and consider- ing the economy, this year was very good, he concluded. - Jan Donovan iw Kurt Huizinga UO! got C1 pie in the face after the Sophomore Class collection jar had more pennies than silver.

United Way Week 13 'Let's get physical' with aerobics "Get off your buns and get movin'!" bellowed Richard Simmons as he coaxed some members of the faculty, as well as students in physical education classes, to stretch, pull and reach. Miss Ellie Duax started teaching aerobics in her Personal Development classes and to some faculty members after Thanksgiving. Miss Nancy Kline, Home Ec. teacher, commented, "I like to do aerobics because I get some physical activity. After teaching all day, I get tired, and that gives me energy." The Personal Development classes had aerobic exercise every other day. They lifted weights, ran or jumped rope, and then the next day they did aerobic exercises. "Aerobics was really fun and I look- ed forward to it," stated Jan Donovan i12j. Aerobics is a kind of exercise made to be fun. It strengthens the heart, lungs and blood vessels. It also keeps the body fit and trim. "The music keeps you going with the beat. I think the kids really like it," explained Miss Duax. "The first day I got really stiff, but I Reaching is an aerobic exercise that builds up arm muscles and increases blood circulation. Miss Dorothy Siebert is one of the faculty who attended classes. Amy Fulk 1121, Jan Donovan 1121, Jo-Dee Poole llli, and Cindy Burton C121 get a change of pace from lifting weights as they exercise to aerobic records. 14 Aerobics Classes could tell it was helping me get in shape. It was really fun and different," said Jodi Poole 1111. Most of the people in aerobics preferred Richard Simmons' album "Reach" over the regular dance step type of exercise. Miss Duax also ex- plained that people liked Simmons better because learning all the dance steps was harder than just listening to the record. Because aerobics combines exer- cise with fun, Mrs. Sandy Sasser, English teacher, summed it up by say- ing, "I think aerobics are great!" - Stefanie Livers Aerobics appeals to most people because ex- ercising to music is easier and more fun than just exercising, as Laura Cleary lllj finds out. Some aerobic exercises use dance steps, but Tina Swanson illl, Randy Matheny fill, Hope Parks l12I, and Mark Turner C111 stretch to music. ..:,,kkk , WW 3 Ideally the water wall created in the Architec- tural Drafting will provide 3O-4O percent of the heat in the classroom, according to Mr. Elmer Dotzert. As the cost offuel goes up, so does interest in solar energy. Mark Lockwood KID records room temperature, as Kevin Bellows l12j and Mike Burkhart C121 work. ater wall conserves energy Using passive solar energy became an "active" project for the Architec- tural Drafting class, which set up a "water wall" in the Drafting classroom. For the Architectural Drafting pro- ject, Building Trades' students clean- ed and painted barrels which were fill- ed with water. The side of the barrels facing the sun were painted black to absorb the heat from the sun. The bar- rels which faced inside were painted brown so the heat could escape out in- to the room, explained Mr. Elmer Dotzert, Industrial Arts teacher. The Architectural Drafting class us- ed an indoor-outdoor thermometer to record the temperature in and out of the barrels. Ideally they would heat 30 to 40 percent of the room, Mr. Dotzert Eric Augspurger 1112 and Mike Burkhart U21 check the water in the solar wall, which at its warmest reached 82 degrees, said Mr. Elmer Dotzert. commented. He said the highest temperature reached inside the bar- rels was 82 degrees. The students also kept track of when the sun was shining and when the curtains were drawn across the windows in front of the stack of barrels. Mr. Dotzert felt the students liked the project, and they turned in many good written reports on solar energy to supplement the project, he said. Mr. Dotzert is interested in using some type of solar energy in the Building Trades house in the near future. In a "Pantagraph" interview, he said a portion of the solar project would be financed with a 3500 grant from the Illinois Department of Energy Conservation. Mr. Dotzert concluded, "I wish peo- ple would get more interested in the many different types of solar energy for it would be a benefit for all." - Amy Kohler Going Solar 15 Student jobs: do they work for or against them. What do you do to get that new pair of designer jeans or that new pair of Nikes that you "just have to have" or to buy the hottest car on the streets? Beg mom and dad, or get a job? Many students took the second alternative and got a job. "I don't expect my parents to give me everything I need when I can get it on my own," commented Wendy Rees I12l. "Being independent by buy- ing things for myself will help me in the future when I live on my own," she added. Todd Kull Illl has been working at Godfather's Pizza for over a year and said he uses his money for dates and fixing up his car. According to Kull, the worst part about having a job is: "I can't always do what I want to because it interrupts plans." Eric Bacon I10l needs the money he makes working at Taco Gringo to help buy his clothes and to spend on games. "I like being able to provide for myself instead of depending on my parents for everything," Bacon said. At a time when unemployment is at its peak, one would think teenagers would have problems finding a job. However, for most this was no pro- blem at all, according to Mr. Jim Davidson of Job Service. A lot of teenagers get jobs through friends, relatives and special programs such as Rent-A-Youth. "Not many teenagers come into the office except during the summer," he added. "Teens seem to find jobs pret- ty easily, especially seasonal jobs," he concluded. Connie Settles Illj worked at the County Seat during the Christmas season, but said she wouldn't want to work all the time because she always had to plan her day around her job. "I just wanted a little extra money for Christmas, " she explained. Other students decide to work only during the summer. Kami Kidwell Illj, who worked as a waitress at the Bloomington Club over the summer, said she worked for the experience and a chance to get out of the house, but also said she wouldn't want to 16 Teens and Economy work all of the time. "It takes away too much of your free time," she explained. For this and other reasons, some students choose to get their money from their parents rather than get a job. Kathy Moore I12j gets her money from her mom, but said she would like to get a job. "I would be able to do more if I had a job," said Moore. "When you de- pend on your parents for money, you can't always buy anything you want," she concluded. Mark Bruning IIOI said he detassel- ed during the summer. "I don't really need to work. My parents buy almost everything I need," Bruning said. "However, many parents can't afford to buy everything for their kids," he added. "With the economy being in the shape that it is, many teenagers are working just to help support themselves," said Mr. Davidson. But exactly how has the economy Many students use their money for video games and dates, in addition to buying clothes and other needs. Dave Follick and Chris Pozzoni flll had to spend some money for Homecoming dance tickets, as well as the "extras" involved. Seniors are hit harder with expenses than most students with the costs of caps and gowns, senior photos, announcements and other activities. Doug Beverage f12l is being measured for his cap by the Josten representative. 4 affected teenagers? Tami Hoover Illl, who has bee working for three years, said she ha to be more conservative with he money because of the economy, bu also said the change has been a mino one for her. Others, however, have been severe ly affected by the economy. Mant families have cut back on traveling because of the expense involved. "Vacations are becoming more ani more expensive, so we may not be g ing this year," commented Scof Brokaw HOD. Parents have had to cut back ii other ways, too. "My parents don't spend as mucl on me because they just can't afforc it," Michelle McCurdie said. The economy of today hasn't only affected adults. Teenagers, who see to be providing more of their owlf spending money by working at jobs are also feeling the crunch. - Sallie Able Angie Moore Ui.,lVf1 UNK DN M: rms - W ,152 447 f ANCHOVV 1 COFFEE .147 M ll HAM f-XHLPIMD Hkfifl-2 E35 .JFKLIXTYENO 1.

M32 rw spite of all the holidays in February, NCHS was in all month. To make this a little bearable, February Follies were held. 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 deliveries. 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. -Kristi Lutz Gina Quiggins One participant in the Cupid Classic was Craig Cermak llll. His predicted time was 18:30, while his finishing time was 17:37. Mr. Fred Walk, sponsor of the Road Runners Club, organized and participated in the Cupid Classic run which was held on Feb. 12. Two hundred and ten people gave blood to the Bloodmobile on February 14. Mike Snell- ing i12l said, f'Giving blood for the first time was a weird experience." February Follies 19 Skatium adds un and excitement to twin citie Ice skaters finally have a place to skate thanks to the new Skatium. Hockey for all ages and the wide variety of entertainment add fun and excitement to Normal, according to Tammy Downen l11l. Dorothy Hamill, 1976 World and Olympic Gold Medalist and three time U.S. Champion, was featured at the Skatium on Feb. 5. Other guest skaters were Rick Turley and Mary Le Beau. "We have had a very strong response to the 'Centre Ice' show," explained Mr. Ed Saari, president of Skatium Enterprises. Tickets for the show were S10 and 5 per person. Public skating opened Jan. 15, con- tinued Mr. Saari. Mindy Biava l11l started taking ice skating lessons at the Skatium, Jan. 16. "The first thing they taught me was how to fall down on my buttf' She felt the Skatium was "a very nice place to get together with your friends." Some of the new activities include public skating, skating lessons and hockey for youth and adults, as well as ISU Hockey Club and Twin City Stingers games. But not all skating was fun and games. Many people played seriously in hockey leagues. Mr. Gary Woods was a good example. He found out the hard way how dangerous hockey can be. Mr. Woods broke his rib wing of the scapula lotherwise known as the shoulder bladel while playing hockey in his league at the Skatium. Acccording to Mr. Jim Thompson, a fellow hockey player, Mr. Woods fell as he was skating towards the goal. He was going too fast, and as he tried to hit the puck in front of the goal, he slid and fell into the wall. When he hit the wall, his left shoulder made a loud cracking noise. "He layed in agony for 5 . . . no 10 minutes and then the rescue squad came," Mr. Thompson explained. The league that Mr. Woods skated in was made up of mostly teachers from NCHS. Teachers on the team were Mr. Thompson, Mr. Gene Christmann and Mr. Gary Luallen. - Becky Lyle Jan Donovan 20 Weekends When Dorothy Hamill skates, everyone sits on the edge of their seats in awe. "There was something magical about Dorothy Hamill's performance," stated Julie Streenz l1Ol. "I really enjoyed the show."

'fr Weekends in a college town such as BloomingtonfNormal may sound ex- citing. However, they are no different than living in a non-college town, ac- cording to most NCHS students.

Doug Becker 1121 spent his weekends in a different way. He bowl- ed on Saturday morning, Sunday afternoon and three days a week after school. He attended the Professional Bowlers Camp QPBCJ and planned to go again. His future goals include be- ing on the ISU Bowling Team and becoming a member of the Pro Bowlers' Association. For Becker and many other students, it is better to get involved with something worthwhile instead of laying around the house on weekends. - Becky Lyle Jan Donovan Weekends 21 22 - SOS Although supporting actors like Tina Swan- son 1111, Sara Gill 1101. and Jill Gremer 1111 aren't praised a lot, they are one of the most important factors of a production, according to designer Dennis Curtis1111.

Students on Stage 1SOS1 was created by Mrs. Diane Mishler, English Dept., 11 years ago. Ms. Mishler explained that she put SOS into action because she thought giving the students more respon- sibilities would make them work harder and learn more about the plays and how they are put on. Winning playwrights were Kris Stef- fensen 1111, Mary Ohler1101, and Car- rie Pope1101. "The plays were very enjoyable," commented Linda Bromley 1111.

After a muddle-headed mother found manuscript notes for her son-in-law's newest novel, she assumed that he was plotting to put her into a mental institution. It was directed by Mike Wells 1121 and designed by Mike Rickert 1111. The cast members included Sally Davis 1111 as the mother and Pete Brown 1101 as her son-in-law. Other characters were played by Charlene Beringer 1121, Pam Martoglio 1121, Krysta Gunderson 1111 Tina Hogan 1111, Gordon Ooms 1111, Rickert, Bryan Bandeko 1101, Amy Brickell 1101 and Janie Halsema 1101. Steffensen's play, "A Serpent in the Garden," was a serious drama which examined the struggle between the forces of good and evil. The conflict was between Joseph Crane and his wife Suzanne, but extended to their neighbors as Joseph tried to control his wife's unending desire for destruction. Julie Reading 1111 was chosen as director, and Dennis Curtis 1111 was the designer. Brien Fletcher 1121 por- trayed Joseph, while Susan Ochs 1101 was his wife.

"Are you Really the Best There ls?" by Ohler, was a musical about jealousy, immaturity and friendship. It involved Joe, the class bully, and his interference in Holly and Rick's love life, and his trouble-making among the other students. Rhys Lovell 1121 was chosen as director for the play, along with Stef- fensen as designer and Jason Stelzel 1121 as musical coordinator. Because it was a musical, Bob Gehrenbeck 1121 was involved by playing percussion, while Stelzel played the piano. The cast included Tom Burkhart 1101 as Joe, Becky Hoyt 1101 as Holly and Curtis as Rick.

"Hollywood Nights 29 "Bing, bing, bong" signaled that 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- rowsmith 1111. 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 30 Morning announcements 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 Mrs. Kirk. 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 "monotone drone." One advantage of reading the an- nouncements, other than getting to class ten minutes late, was the career opportunities. Davis and Brian Jones 1111 plan to continue in the field.

A class was offered for the first time in Unit 5 to help students raise their ACT scores. The class's main ob- jective was to refresh the students' memories, not to teach them something new, Mr. Hayden explained. Even though most school officials felt there was no major problem with the drop in scores, there will be a pro- blem if they continue to decline. "There are so many unknowns, we hardly know where to start hunting," Mr. Ben Cottone, administrative assis- tant for instructional affairs at Unit 5, said in a "Pantagraph" interview. - Michelle Churchey Michele Evans A students ACT score is often a major fac- tor in his admission to college.

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. ,gs l Although Mrs. Peg Kirk had two conference Hailey f10l, who will find himself in larger hours, budget cuts will reduce her planning classes. time next year.

This cut would 320,000, according to the sci administration. Another cut directly sliced NCHS sports. The School Bo eliminated all intramurals in Unit 5 tramurals director Robert Freer said the savings would be 38,500. However, the cut which sho have the greatest impact on N was the increasing of the tea workload from five periods teaching to six. Also, departrr heads would increase their teacl load from three periods to four, w administrators would take on a tional duties. This cut alone wo save 3400,000 by eliminating teachers. Teachers in general felt these 4 would reduce the extra time t have to help students. Confere periods would be reduced by period. Also, teachers felt that less grao time would force them to change types of tests and assignments t give. Many said they would red writing assignments and give m multiple choice tests.

Mrs. Sasser taught Gems, ALC, Basic Mass Media, Basic Fiction, Conflicts, and Folklore for four years. She also taught special reading classes for two years.

Miss Kline taught Consumer Education, Housing, and Interior Design. Mrs. Sue Lakin taught part-time in the Social Studies Dept. She taught Government in Action and U.S. History in Action. Mrs. Marvis Dickinson, part-time German teacher, was unsure of her future plans. She would still teach German at NCHS in the mornings, but would no longer be teaching at Chid- dix in the afternoon. Mrs. Madeleine Hoss, library aide for two years, said she hoped to substitute next year or find other work. In addition to teacher cuts, many teachers in the Unit were to be transferred to other buildings to take over full or part-time assignments. Math teacher Cheryl Siebert was transferred full-time to Chiddix Junior High. Also, three teachers were transfer- red to the elementary schools. They were Health teacher Bernadette Chiaro, P.E. teacher Bart Williams and Drivers' Education teacher Ann Burnett. Another change involved Mr. Ken Turner, who would teach Science at Parkside for one period and work at NCHS the rest of the day, Mr. Malito said. However, in an attempt to open up positions for the RIF'ed teachers, the School Board offered an early retire- ment bonus and a one year leave of absence to the remaining Unit 5 teachers. Mr. Malito said it was regrettable that Unit 5 had to lose such fine teachers. "Their contribution to the education of students has been signifi- cant. Due to the financial conditions of our school district, it was essential and necessary that a reduction in staff take place," he said. - Eric Hoss Mike Snelling Although Mr. Tom Patten was let go, he was optimistic about regaining his position after resignations, leaves of absence and transfers were announced.

Quarterback Mike Stauffer 1121 handed the ball off to running backs Rob Mitchell i121 and Rich Crane l12J. Regular receivers were flankers Tom Ewen C121 and Jim Hammerschmidt illi. The come from behind win over Springfield Lanphier was the key game that turned us around, Mitchell felt. The Ironmen weren't all offense though, they were led on defense by Crane who had 82 tackles in the '82 season. Although the players were smaller than teams in the past, they more than made up for their size in determination, according to Coach Tharp. "We never seemed to peak at the Quarterback Mike Stauffer 1122 readies his of- fensive line for another scoring attempt against BHS at Intercity. The Ironmen won the game, 27-14.

The one question mark at the start of the season was the lack of ex- perience. However, the seniors really pulled together and led the team by example, Coach Tharp explained.

Varsity Football 45 QW? When people think of a football game, they automatically think of the players. Not many realize the impor- tant role a manager plays, such as Sophomore Football Team manager Dennis Hallam 1101. Before the game, Hallam set up the field, and during the game he fixed broken equipment. Some of the benefits of being manager were that he got out of class for away games and he also got into all games free, he explained. - Jana Nowers Wendy Rees , i E .. 1. , ' J ..n 'QQ sz V.

Coach Siebert has been coaching Girls' Golf for four years, but feels that she would enjoy it more if she would have coached when she started teaching. "This was the best group as far as working well together. They enjoy helping each other," said Coach Siebert. Last year, Coach Siebert said that if the interest in golf kept up, they would have a much better team in the future. Interest has been pretty steady, because, according to Coach Siebert, the turnout was pretty good again this year. Michelle Churchey 1111 said the team's goal was to place second in In- tercity, which they did. It was Chur- chey's second year on the team.

Despite this loss, the swimming and diving Ironmen managed to make respectable showings throughout the season. Mr. Turner gained the help of two ISU students to coach diving. Under the guidance of Aaron Melnick and Kim Kambested, the Ironmen divers became, in Mr. Turner's words, "a force to be dealt with."

The members of the team agreed that Coach Duax was a good coach. "She's an excellent coach and knows the game very well," said Moore. Coach Duax explained, "One of the best things of coaching is getting closer to the students and that's what makes it worthwhile."

Two of the members, Kara Schlueter 1121 and Natalie White 1121 went to State. "We were a young team, but did well," Norris said.

The Boys' Tennis Team suffered through eight rain-outs and missed un- told practices because of the unusual wet spring weather. Coach Gary Woods said, "The rain this year may have dampened the courts, but not our enthusiasm." Despite a lack of upperclassmen, the team did remarkably well. This season the team had only one senior, Mark Yoder, and three juniors, Alan Frankeberger, Eric O'Daffer and Todd Donalson. The rest of the team was comprised of sophomores. According to Coach Woods, stan- dout Dennis Rhodes i1Ol holds a lot of promise for the future. Rhodes let- tered in tennis for the second time giv- ing himself the opportunity to become the first four-year letterman in the history of tennis at Normal Community. Coach Woods said, "Dennis is pro- bably one of the five top players I've ever coached in my 11 years. He's got a lot of talent."

Because seven runners returned, two freshmen joined, and girls were added to the team for the first time, Coach Gene Masters was pleased with the Cross Country Team's turnout. Although the turnout was good, Coach Masters commented, "We just don't get Cross Country material out here. We're a football school," he explained. Although there was a new Girls' Cross Country Team, Coach Masters said he felt he might have devoted more time to the boys because "more of the boys were those who had run all summer and were ready for further instruction." Mike Rutlidge 191 may be another outstanding runner if he keeps up the good work, according to Coach 56 Boys' Cross Country Masters. For the boys' team, Keith Bruch 1121 was Most Valuable Player, and Mike Portman 1121 and Bruch were team co-captains. The team went to Regionals and came out with second place. Bruch went on to State. After placing 18th place in State finals in 1981, Bruch fell to 50th this year. The week before the race Bruch had been suffering from flu and sore throat, according to Coach Masters. During the race Bruch fell once and then another time was pushed, which resulted in another fall. Although he didn't place as high as the year before, the team was still very satisfied, explained Coach Masters. - Julie Schove Most enthusiastic runner of Boys, Country is Craig Cermak 1111.

Girls' Cross Country 57 '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 forgotten. Mr. Masters said he promised himself he would quit teaching the day he didn't enjoy it anymore, however, he is quitting earlier than that. 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 career. 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 he explained. 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 graduating. 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, Illinois. "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 Normal Relays. 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 brother. Mr. Masters said he is grateful for his family's support through the years. "All my success I owe to family," he explained. Trackettes In 1962 NCHS built a new tra and Coach Masters needed help to ficiate the races. He asked for any i who wished to do a service for school and the community. Althoi he expected a few girls to volunte 45 turned out. This was the birth the Trackettes. "What we'd do without their don't know. I'll miss them as mucl' I'll miss track," the Coach explain The organization of the Trackei was one reason he was inducted in ISU Athletic Hall of Fame in 1976. Red Socks 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 to school once when he forgot it. If he got from red shirts to red socks doesn't know, but it's a fact that ' people have seen him without socks. One of the Coach's former athl is Mr. Jerry Hayden, NCHS teacher. He described his for coach as a "dedicated, true, loyal In man interested in students and v 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 and retirement. "I've worked at NCHS 38 y because I like young people. I hat leave, but it's time to sit down relax a while," he concluded. - Eric H '51-fstrffzwziwzx,wif- f Zi "" ' 9- 5- f get MWQM, W he . .- i , . 1 if fil wi . i : W , 'YV G .ar AS' z- According to Coach Gene Masters,"l'll miss Cross Country as much as lill miss teaching at NCI-lS.,' In addition to coaching Boys' Track and Cross Country for 37 years, Mr. Gene Masters has taught accounting to Steve Becker ll ll and other students. In 1937, Coach Gene Masters was on the Redbird Track team. His achievements then, and later with the Trackettes, got him in the ISU Athletic Hall of Fame in 1976. 1n-. Coach Gene Masters 59 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 basketball. 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 Bloomington. - Bob Shaver Mike Snelling Varsity Basketball, Front Row-Russ Spelbring, Deric Bruce Hofbauery Jeff Weller, Andy Wgodtliy Andy Cramer, Bill Hinshaw, Todd Block, David Eiben, Scot Meece, Brian Metz, Hodgey Teichmann, Back RowAAsst.

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 season. 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. -Jana Nowers Girls' Softball '71 Y Coach Ellie Duax GIRLS' TRACK OPPONENT WE THEY Morton 46W 81 W Springfield Southeast 79 80 Mt.

Drama Club members met regularly to discuss production plans for the next play and review past produc- tions. They also met to make sure their recorded hours were correct, which is very important, said Julie Reading 1111, Thespian vice president. "Club members record the amount of time that they spend here at school working on the school plays. Those hours add up and determine whether or not you get in Thespians," Reading added.

The tournament season started in October and ran to the beginning of March, but, said Felth, a good debater starts researching in the summer.

"lt is very worthwhile because it is one of the few courses in which students can actually see the outcome of their work," said Miss Cattaneo. ln addition to working on the publications, journalism students enter writing contests, attend workshops and camps, and help with fall registration. "The main goal of the yearbook is to picture more people," explained "Reverie" Editor-in-Chief Sandy Thein 1121. "This year's theme is 'NCHS People'." Yearbook work requires photo selection, layout designing, interview- ing, and writing. Newspaper respon- sibilities include interviewing, writing, and staying at school sometimes until midnight for "paste-ups." "Paste-ups" are the rough layout for the newspaper. Gregg Shaffer I12j, "Inkspot" Editorial Editor, said, "I wasn't looking forward to paste-ups at first, but when I started going to them, I realized they can be fun, too." What about readership? Do students really enjoy these publica- tions? "I do," said Dennis Lockhart 1121. "They are both very interesting, and I look forward to reading them. The yearbook is something you'll always have." It appears teenagers can read and write after all. And with the help of the "Inkspot" and the "Reverie," maybe teenage illiteracy will be a thing of the past. - Carrie Johnson Craig Queen Hlnkspotw Sports Editor Connie Saint IIII and reporter Jim Snodgrass IIOI flip through proof sheets to select photos for the publication.

"Students receive on the job train- ing not provided in a normal classroom and at the same time are allowed to explore the working world without any long-term commitments," he said. The program was originally divided into five different areas which includ- ed HERO tHome Economics Related Occupationsj, DO tDiversified Oc- cupationsl, CWT iCooperative Work Trainingi, and ARO tAgriculture Related Occupationsl. But because of a teacher resignation second semester, ARO was elimited, and those students were transferred to a different program.

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- wuanvkilw 92 Band 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." - Natalie Kratz Gregg Shaffer Drum major Lynn Wager H22 directs the Marching lronmen at the fall Labor Day Parade.

Styles and music varied with each group. Swing Choir and Girls' Choir added choreography to their selections. Choir Vice President Mike Wells l12l stated, "Choir is a lot of fun because there are so many outside ac- tivities you can participate in. I enjoy participating in ensembles.

"Increasing student involvement in school-related activities and charity drives was our major goal this year,', explained first Vice President Mike Merritt 1121. United Way week, held the week before Homecoming, was filled with opportunities to get the student body involved. A slave auction, class jars for pennies, homeroom money collec- tions and dress-up days were held through the week. NCI-IS raised over 31,000 for the charity.

"People who finish 100 miles receive a Road Runner t-shirt, and ones who finish 200 miles on up receive a trophy or plaque," he added. New second semester, but similar to the Turkey Trot, was the Cupid Classic Run held on Feb. 11. It con- sisted of a one- and three-mile run.

"The Mock Election is a service that the Social Science Club spon- sors," president Denise Kraft l12l said. Club sponsor Mrs. Diane Mueller said, 'Alt simulates an activity kids should do as adults." Mrs. Mueller commented that the number of votes was slim due to the lack of publicity and the fact that 1982 was not a Presidential election year. As another service to the school, Social Science Club sold concessions at home basketball games to raise money. One of the problems faced by Social Science Club, as well as many other clubs, was the inactive club members. The club had planned on going to Springfield during the spring. However, according to Mrs. Mueller, "The club wouldn't do anything until the officers scheduled a meeting."

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- joyed National Secretaries Week because each of them was able to M. .4 .g QQLQQIJQN '1 W ry work as a secretary for a full day. Some of the places they worked in- cluded State Farm, IAA and the court house. Club members believe secretaries are very important to the business world. "I have always wanted to be a secretary, and there always seems to be jobs available for good secretaries," said Amy Webb f12l. Tomorrow's Secretaries Club also had several fund-raising activites. Sell- ing candy, however, was the biggest money-maker bringing in over 515350 in profit. They also sold flowers for of- fice secretaries on Secretaries Day, ac- cording to Loving.

The Building Trades class, designed to teach students about construction trades, completed this house in the spring. Although building the house includ- ed doing all the masonary, concrete, electrical, plumbing, heating, and carpentry work, the cabinets for the house were provided by Mr. Dave Bloom's Wood Class III, stated Mr. Elmer Dotzert, instructor. Because there was no landscaping class at NCI-IS, Building Trades students also did the yard design. A special feature of the Sherr- ingham house was its energy- efficiency because of the amount of in- sulation used, Mr. Dotzert said. Part of the class time was devoted to the study of building information, such as materials, building and elec- trical codes, basic methods of con- struction, use of tools and safety. Due to a decrease in class size, Building Trades changed its format to complete the house in two years in- stead of one, Mr. Dotzert explained. Due to the amount of time it took to build the house in one year, the students were denied much of their book studies, he said. Money for construction of the house was provided by the General At the house that was being built by the Building Trades class is Jeff Legrand llll. Along with the hours spent working at the house, students also have in-class studies. The Building Trades class built this house, which is located at 1 18 Sherringham Road in Normal.

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 or '69. The Trackettes' membership is ap- proximately 21, but in past years the membership has reached around 60 or 70. 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- 108 Trackettes 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 passes it. 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.

Trackettes 109 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 function. "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 National Honor Society member Barry ln- gold f12l teaches French on Teacher Ex- change Day. Members in the honor group had several activities during the year. FFA members worked together to build a Homecoming float. "Itls KFFAD more active because it is a nationwide club. Since more people are involved, it is one of the better clubs,'l said Coleen Prewitt f12l. 110 Decline of clubs should be recreational," Mr. White ex- plained. "Ideas for clubs should be in- itiated by the students." However, not all of the clubs are suffering from lack of interest. One of the groups which is still functioning the same as in the past is the Trackettes. Trackette sponsor Gene Masters said, "The number of Trackettes may have decreased," but "we will be as productive as always because we still have the same amount of work to do." Road Runners is another club which is still very active. There were 60 members involved in the club. Mr. Fred Walk, sponsor, explained, "Road Runners does not take up a lot of time, and the students can run on their own time." Club member Lisa Ashley C111 com- mented, "Road Runners is a good way to keep youself fit and in shape." As Doug Freemanflll explained, "Road Runners is an activity that can be done on your own time, and there are not always meetings after schoof He was an active member all year. Since student interest in clu seems to have decreased for a numb of reasons, some have suggested th clubs which are inactive should A dropped. However, Principal Robe Malito does not think that shou happen. He ackowledges that attitudes ai interests have changed. "The decli in interest of clubs may be due to tl fact that clubs have been placed l as opposed to concerts, movies, jog and even friendships," Mr. Mali commented. However, he feels the best path take is to continue offering studer the opportunity to join special-intera clubs. If some clubs don't function di to lack of interest, that's all right, l said. But at least students should ha the opportunity to join and participa in these groups. - Amy Fleetwood Krissy Strickler A912515 b iff, ,ggi FP gs Ar C 1 1, ' si' it S 4 5 'D Along with teaching Driver's Ed and RE., Mr. Gary Luallen is also a member of the Road Runners Club.

Mr. Dan Cole filled the space Dean Alan Chapmen left. Mr. Jerry Crabtree became Assistant Prin- cipal filling the vacancy left by Mr. Keith Rieger. This was the first year in which the economy and budget cutbacks took their toll on "People at Work."

Stacey Brown l12l explained why she took the class. "I heard that OCH was an interesting class, and that Miss Ryder was an excellent teacher," she said. Many students emphasized that the course was valuable for college preparation. "OCH has given me a better understanding of literature which will benefit me in my future plans," Lois Mills l12l said. On the other hand, Latin, the other class that Miss Ryder teaches, develops better mental discipline in students, she said. According to her, the average Latin student scores 122 points higher in math and 144 points higher in verbal English on the SAT test than students who have not had the class. Latin not only provides a founda- tion for all the romance languages, but it also raises students' college en- trance exam scores, Miss Ryder said. "It would help me with my SAT score, and though you can't speak Latin, it helps you in grammar all the way around," said Eric Hoss l12l. "The term 'humanities' has been seriously abused by schools and universities. Classical Heritage and Latin strive to maintain and reinforce the original meaning of that word. Both courses afford the opportunity to examine the greatest men and the greatest thoughts of the world from which we have sprung," Miss Ryder concluded. - Amy Fleetwood Miss Mary Ryder teaches the Latin and Our Classical Heritage classes. She feels these classes help students gain mental discipline and raise their college test scores. English Dept 115 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 Chemistry. 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. In terms of enrollment, both Pace and General Chemistry have about the same number of students, Pace Chemistry teacher Don Gore said. There is a misconception that Pace Loosely structured classes have proven to be more appealing to students like Margo Priess f10l and Amy Welcome f10l, who both take Pace Chemistry from Science Teacher Ken Turner.

Difficulty in either class depends on how hard the student is willing to work, he explained. 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. - Mary Fandel Jan Donovan Working out of packets and individualized labs gives students like Shawn McConnell 111i hands on experience and the ability to move forward and progress quickly. 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. head, wrote a junior college math textbook.

Most students who have an in- terest in mechanics usually go on to the Auto Mechanics Program taught at the Area Vocational Center, Mr. Geshiwlm explained. Metals II and III students spend a good deal of their time working on in- dividual projects. Metals teacher Lee Wright estimated that 70 percent of the students' time is spent on these projects. The remaining time is spent listening to lectures, watching demonstrations, and occasionally viewing films. Student projects varied from tool chests and barbecue grills to motorcy- cle trailers. One student, Matt Walker 1121, said he took Metals because he wants to become a metallurgical engineer.

"In survival, man has a goal that he continuously has to pursue, and that's surviving. In life, most people should have a goal that they should try to pursue every day, but most don't," said Mr. Bart Williams, physical education teacher. This summarizes Mr. Williams' view of the survival course taught to NCHS students. In life, people either make it, or they don't, and people don't realize that until they are much older, he explained. Personally, Mr. Williams said he has enjoyed the outdoors ever since he was a little boy. "Being able to do it lsurvivel and knowing you can" is what is impor- tant, he emphasized. In addition, "ac- cepting the conditions and not fighting or complaining" are part of the challenge, Mr. Williams concluded. - Stefanie Livers 120 Physical Education Dept.

However, now com- puters are found in the everyday business world and in thousands of homes. Since 1971, a computer programm- ing class called Data Processing has been offered by the Business Dept. In contrast to the past few years, the classes for Data Processing have gone up in enrollment, said Mr. Gary Woods, teacher. "Computers are becoming a part of everyday lives and it is still a place where jobs are widely available are the biggest reasons for such an in- crease in classes," explained Mr. Woods. For the first eight years, there were only two classes of 25-30 students each, and then three classes for two With the recent interest in computers, Data Processing teacher Gary Woods finds himself teaching four classes a day. Data Processing requires students like John Kroppman C123 to manipulate the factual material through manual, mechanical, and electronic methods. 122 Business Department years. "This is the first year to have four classes of about 25-30 students in each class," commented Mr. Woods. The juniors and seniors who took the course had many different reasons for doing so. Mark Schroeder 1121 said, "I took Data Processing for a prerequisite for college courses." Another attraction was that quite a few people really liked Mr. Woods as a teacher. "Mr. Woods is hilarious and makes the class bearable, unlike many others," commented Kelly Meier 1111. The sections covered in this one year course are eight phases of manipulation, flow charting, machine language programming including syn- thetic language and basic COBOL language. "There was a lot of work done with flow charts that I didn't really like, but working with the computer was fun," said Schroeder. "The field of Data Processing constantly changing and there are lot of job opportunities in this are said Mr. Woods. Although Jacqueline Supan t took the class, she was not real sur computers would be for her. wanted to find out if I even liked cc puters and wanted to go into 1 field," she explained.

Besides entertaining at football games, the Marching Band played at parades, IMEA district, and festivals, said Director George York. Many of the members of the Marching Band were also a part of the Pep Band. At competitions, the Marching Band was judged on its field and parade shows. At Metamora, the band placed second in both areas, while it received sixth place at ISU in field. At IWU it won a second in parade, and the band received a third in both field and parade at U of I. The indoor band was divided into the Concert and Symphonic bands after auditions. Mr. Kirby Reese directed the Jazz Band, which included between 17 and 25 people who had to audition.

After he is done conducting at NCHS, he can be found at Chiddix Junior High and Hoose Elementary teaching music. During his four years at NCHS, Mr. Reese says he has become very at- tached to his job and students. Eric Jazz and Concert Bands are conducted everyday by Mr. Kirby Reese so that they can give many concerts throughout the year for students and parents. Hoss 1121 described him as very understanding, easy to get along with and able to make the material very easy to learn. Mr. Reese said he became in- terested in music from his father, who played the organ for his church. He described his father as being a "Satur- day night musician."

He has a wife and a little girl. - Kevin Gainey Music Department 125 For many NCHS students the IMC offers an escape from study hall, a place for leisure reading and music listening, as well as a major research tool. However, because of the economy and projected cutbacks, it may not be able to provide as many of these services in the future. "The IMC offers many services, such as a place to go so you don't have to sit in study hall," said Barb Trowerf12l. Many students come in just to read, while others come in for information on a particular subject, said Mrs. "Mrs Hoss is always there with a smiling face and ready to serve any student in the IMC," said Jan Donovan l12j For some students, finding materials in the IMC is a problem.

"English classes use the IMC the most, and this is during research paper time," stated Mrs. Edith Mc- Cown, head librarian. Nowadays the economy has caused a lot of pressure, and even IMC has been affected by this. Last year the IMC was allowed S12,000, but because of cutbacks, this year it was only budgeted 36,800 For a few years Unit 5 received title money from the government. This money was used by the IMC to pur- chase materials and equipment. y hurts IMC resources However, the money is no longer ing to be available, Mrs. McCown s The IMC subscribed to magazines and six newspapers.

According to Mrs. Myrna Eiben, however, being a school nurse in- volves much more than this. The primary job of a school nurse is administering first-aid although her duties go far beyond that. Mrs. Eiben, who is in her ninth year here at NCHS, said being a school nurse includes keeping permanent health records of every student, as well as helping with the vision and hearing tests each year. "The worst part of it is the paper work," Mrs. Eiben said. "It gets very tedious and boring after awhilef' she added. - Angie Moore Mrs. Myrna Eiben, school nurse, finds her job gives her the opportunity to meet the students and get to know them.

It's a discipline which requires constant practice in order to achieve the perfect form. Ramseyer has been diving for two years for Coach Chris Deputy and the Girls' Swim Team. "I keep diving because it is a challenge and lots of fun," Ramseyer stated. 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 136 Sophomores 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 half. She eventually hopes to get a div- ing scholarship to UCLA, she said. -Kristi Lutz A x ,X 2 si X2 vi-B 'Q Ja I sl X 1 W ' it 52' SV '-lv' . ..

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 field goal. "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 said. 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 explained. "I have to practice almost every day, and it's a lot of work. But, I wouldn't change it for anything." - Angie Moore x 5 . is fs X S ,ff --,Sy -..

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 miles. 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.

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 sometimes strange. The variety of clothing worn varied from casual to punk. Dee Augspurger i12j found that dressing punk was not really necessary. "You can have just as much fun in plain clothes," she said. However, Michelle Loy l10j, who typically wore a red mini-skirt, red socks, white tights, black fingernail polish and a red heart stenciled on her cheek, disagreed. She felt that dressing punk was a must. 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 Hospelhorn. 142 Sophomores about it." Some people went to Club 51 to get away from any problems they might have had. Cara Tatman l10l said, "Nobody bothers you when you're here, and you can get away from all of your problems." 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 teenagers. Many sophomores found that t liked Club 51 better than ot teenage hangouts. . "It's better than Garcia's becd you can't get kicked out of here you can at Garcia's," said Cole. Club 51 is located north Heyworth and just south Bloomington-Normal. Kemp said, "Its location may be ther out, but it is right in the cer where all the kids can get to it." Club 51 has become an attraci for teens from all over the MCL County area. Sophomores w together with their friends to hav great time. Said Sutter, "There's nothing e to do on a Sunday night, but have at Club 51." - Bob Shaver Krissy Strickler ell .

Davis returned for her second year as a drum major while Froseth switched from playing the trumpet. Leading the band and keeping the tempo is part of the job of the drum majors. Another responsibility, not quite on the same level, was the fact that they made their own uniforms, they explained. Responsibility, winning, and mak- ing friends were some of the main at- tractions of drum majoring, Davis and "Winning is a rewarding part of 1 joring because you know your h work and efforts have finally p off," Froseth explained.

During the sum- mer she played with the Bloomington Normal Girls' Softball Association CBNGSAJ. "Quite a few people say I'm a jock, but I don't think I am. I just like to play," she said. Working around her hearing dif- ficulty has become second nature for Coan. She doesn't go by what she hears, instead she relies mostly on lip reading, she explained. Coan has two hearing aids, but she wears only one in her left ear. "None of the teammates or the coach treat me any differently than anyone else," she commented. - Michelle Robinson Todd Donalson Vicki Dorfmeister Mark Dow Shari Downen Tammy Downen Rod Duguid Dawn Dunham Brad Dunlap Carl Eaton Darrell Eberwein David Eiben Todd Eilts Kelli Embry Connie Estill Kevin Ethington Michele Evans Mary Fandel Patty Fehr Eric Felth Roger Fike Lori Fletcher Carl Foeller Darrin Fogle John Foley Rodger Foltz Lisa Ford Lisa Fortney Alan Frankeberger fif '1s,2e,2,s:Jm f .V .'

Bernard Kniery 1121 was the third of ten Kniery's who have been NCHS graduates. if 'Getting up after everybody else finding there's no hot water . . ." a disadvantage of living in a large ily, according to Mark Christensen 1. -Ie is a member of one of the three iilies who have done more than ir share of keeping up NCHS' lollment. Mr. and Mrs. William McNiff have 14 children. Seven have graduated from NCHS, and Mike 1121 and Jim 1111 are still attending. Michelle Schmidt 1'741 is one of the McNiff's who graduated from NCHS, and she is now working in the main of- fice at the school. The oldest five children graduated from other high schools. Mr. and Mrs. Christensen have 12 children. Of the 12 children, three have graduated from NCHS, and Mark will graduate in 1984. Four of the children have yet to go through the school system, and the other four have gotten their diplomas from other Illinois schools. Of Mr. and Mrs. James Kniery's 10 children, two are attending NCHS. They are Mary 1111 and Bernard 1121. The Kniery's have one child, Marie, who will not graduate until 1996, and another one is on the way! The two oldest Kniery children have graduated from NCHS. The younger six are scheduled to finish their education in the Unit 5 school system. Mike McNiff 1121 said he likes living in a large family because there is always something going on. He wouldn't want to live in a small family because a large family is more fun he said. 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. -Sallie Able Amy Kohler Juniors 149 1 Nationwide interest in the Armed Forces was reflected even here as more students chose to enlist. To prepare for their life after high school, Keith Clark fllj and Tyler Malejko 1111 joined military organizations. To learn about CPR, first aid, defense policies and the history of flight, Clark joined the McLean Coun- ty Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol QCAPJ. He has been a member since June of '81 and was promoted to Cadet Staff Sergeant in November. Clark said he would like to attend the University of Illinois on a scholar- ship from the Air Force Reserve Of- ficers Training Camp KROTCJ. He also would like to have an operation to restore his eyesight to 2Of2O so he would be eligible to fly, he explained.

A military school's main goal is to uphold traditions of the Armed Forces as Malejko found out when he spent the 1981-82 school year at Calver Military Academy. The academy teaches young cadets discipline, leadership, and honesty, he said. He was a platoon sergeant, a trained grenadier, an armed ex- plosives expert and a ranger fan elite group for warj. Malejko explained that when he turned 17 in April he joined the Army Reserves. He said he would like to at- tend West Point Academy and apply for a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford College in England. He would then serve five years active duty in the army. - Dennis Curtis Bob Page E Brad Merhner 1 GafvMi1l2f - . trr Lora Miller Rhonda Miller ,ii Theresa Miller ' 8' ' V7 Brian Milliman ij' ' Mark Mills ,, 150 Juniors I A if' 'iYou get out of the CAP lCivil Air Patroll what you put into it," said Keith Clark llll, who has been a member for two years.

Their families both influenc- them in their choice of jobs. Leslie is a cook at Delgado's Mex- an restaurant, which is owned by her lirents. The restaurant was a dream come ue for her family. "It was really ex- ting when we first opened," said elgado. "It was like a big ego trip." Every family member is involved in ie restaurant. Debbie is a waitress, ue is Assistant Manager, while Terri in charge of the bar. - ,f ,ff.,.y--.Q,,.. However, working with her family isn't always exciting. According to Delgado, when you work with your parents, you get all the extra hours. The restaurant becomes the only thing you have in common, she said. But one good thing is that she does get to work with her friends. Amy Woodrum l11l, Debbie Stout l12l, and Mark Christensen i11l are just some of the people Delgado was able to help find jobs. Like Delgado, Ford works with a member of her family. She has a job with her mother at Jarie Lea's Beauty Shop. Ford started out when she was young working with mannequins. When she reached the age of 14, she was already cutting her friends' hair, she said. Because of her interest in hair styl- ing, Ford got her apprenticeship license which allowed her to do some work. To get her state license, she ex- plained, would take a few years. Future schooling is not in her plans since she needs only 3,600 work hours to get her state license. - Jayne Welcome KI A r L... -rx 'Z W, X li: ' . A 39" 252' J! gf" X T52 Q- .

Creasy competed in state finals on Jan. 22-23. Four contestants from NCI-IS were Susie Brooks 1121, Creasy, Sharon Fillipponi 1121, and Beth Henrichs l12J. Barbie Buscher 1121 of U-High was awarded first runner-up, and Henrichs was second runner-up. The Talent Award also went to Henrichs. Brooks was awarded most physically fit and tied with Julie Randolph from BHS for the Academic Award. The girls spent the weekend of the pageant doing many activities. Friday night everyone went roller skating, and Henrichs managed to sprain her ankle. Saturday the girls toured WJBC and WBNQ. That night they had pizza at Ash Park and spent the night at the Recreation Center. "We stayed up all night singing songs and didn't get any sleep," said Brooks. 156 Seniors "Everything was a lot of fun, but having to get ready lfor the pagaentl in the locker room at Ash was kind of a pain," commented Brooks. Girls from previous years told Creasy about the pageant and got her interested in it. Also, the scholarship had an in- fluence on her decision, she said. Creasy attended a meeting at the end of her junior year for the Junior Miss Pageant and was then contacted in August to see if she was still in- terested, practices began immediately. "I became real close with the rest of the girls and overcame the fear of per- forming in front of an audience," ex- plained Creasy. Her obligations of being Junior Miss included public appearances at parades and radio stations and help- ing with the Special Olympics. Creasy said she appreciated all that she learned during Junior Miss. "Most important thing they taught us was to be ourselves, smile and have fun," she said. Even though the sponsors g them a pep talk, no talk could hi calm down the competitors' nerx before the interview, she explained. On Jan. 14, Creasy left for ingbrook to begin practicing for state finals. Creasy played, "If It I Love" and "Look to the Rainbo accompanied by a piano piece wh she arranged herself. Twenty-four girls from all over linois spent one week with a host fan ly touring Chicago and Chinatown. Additional scholarships wa awarded to the girls, sponsored Simplicity and Kodak, for modelil clothes which they made for a fashi show. Mr. and Mrs. Albert Creasy joi their daughter at the beginning ofrltl week to support her. Creasy was also involved in pi and rifle squad at school.

The hearse does not seem to 557' 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. - Jana Nowers Wendy Rees rw' ag, Stacy Moore Kelly Morgan Powder Puff 43 Band 2,33 "Inkspot" 3,4, editorial editor 3, associate editor 43 French Club 3,43 Mu Alpha Theta 43 National Honor Society 4.
