When the administration of North Central decided that the all-important first year of the new school
should be recorded in a yearbook, many people said it couldn't be done. Some even said it shouldnit be attempted.
But a sponsor was hired, a staff hastily recruited from early registrants, and both sponsor and staff spent
two weeks of intensive planning and training at the summer journalism institute for high school students.
In September, the inexperienced staffers began to realize what a gigantic task they had undertaken.
School opened with only one and a half of the main wings finished. Many classes were in temporary quarters.
Important sections such as the gym, the home economics department, the auditorium, and the industrial arts
wing were still in the construction stage. The student center was an impassable mess of materials, and
passers from A to B wing had to go outside and around the building. Outside, giant bulldozers stirred up
clouds of dust as the grounds were leveled off and prepared for landscaping.
Clubs were being formed, new policies set up, and new students arrived daily. No traditions were available
to fall back on.
The sponsor, who had spent seven years perfecting an organization at another school, had forgotten
what it meant to start at the bottom of the ladder again, the staff, facing a new and unknown experience, had
difficulty realizing the inevitability of deadlines. Perhaps their most irksome adjustment was in acquiring
the patience to plug away, waiting nine months before the final results of their work could be seen.
If it had not been for the unusually kind cooperation of administerial and teaching staff, the freely given
aid of parents during money making projects, the patience and helpfulness of photographers Earl Loudermilk,
Bob Stalker, and Dick Brier, and the assistance of David L. McConnell, publisher, the book could not
have been completed.
The task often seemed impossible, and sometimes unbearably tiresome, but through it all the staff kept
up its morale with amazingly few clashes of temperament. By the end of the long preparation period, the
young people had begun to feel more like a unified group and to realize the seriousness of their project.
Most of all, they realized that theirs was a unique honor--they were the creators of the first "Northerner"
to be issued in North Central. They had earned their place in history.

IT ALL BEGAN . . . long before the first
pupil entered the doors of North Central on
opening day. It began with a dream in the
minds and hearts of Washington Township par-
ents. But the dream stage soon passed and a
multi-million dollar building began to rise in
the field that once was overgrown with weeds.
Getting a new school started was a terrific
job. Financing, selecting an architect, approving
plans, hiring administrators and teachers, decid-
ing on the curriculum, buying equipment, and
a myriad of other details had to be settled.
Somehow or other it was all accomplished and
on September 5 the doors opened as scheduledg
even though B wing, the cafeteria, the audito-
rium, gym, and several other sections were still
unfinished. Registration exceeded expectation
since only 950 were anticipated, and actually,
1083 boys and girls enrolled.
The Iirst few months were made hectic by
competition with bulldozers outside, and pneu-
matic hammers inside. But gradually the unin-
ished parts of the building were completed,
classes moved into permanent quarters, and
North Central settled down into its role as the
newest high school in Marion County.
Interviews with teachers took up much of Mr. Light's time during
the summer. The school board had directed that he obtain the best
possible teachers for the new faculty and the task took a long time
George Oberle was a successful applicant.

From a half-finished building to a smooth-running
organization was the record made in less than nine
months. Perhaps the most difficult task lay in the
necessity for molding into a North Central student
body, boys and girls whose loyalties were deep-rooted
in other schools. But eventually it became "our
school," not "the way we did it at . . . I" Loyal North
Centralites emerged from the melting pot.
Pupils at the new school were under much pressure
for they had to get accustomed to an entirely new
faculty, different routines and regulations, longer
class periods, and numerous other changes from their
former school patterns. Faculty and administration
Were under similar pressure. But together all accom-
plished the Herculean task of establishing the Wash-

The first day in high school is usually a thrill ex-
perienced only once, and by a freshman. But sopho-
mores and juniors relived that experience when they
entered North Central on opening day.
There Were new friends to make, old friends to
discover, strange rooms to locate, and stubborn lock-
ers to conquer. Faculty members were strange to all
classes, not just to the beginners.
The first day was joyful excitement. Reunions in
the hallways created traffic jams. Piles of construction
materials had to be carefully bypassed. Bells rang
unexpectedly as the electrical system was adjusted.

every room, a switchboard for phones, and drive-in
delivery entrances for transferring equipment and
furnishings to the stage.
Science rooms provide better facilities than those
found in many colleges. Microscopes, test tubes, spe-

plaster models, chemicals, and many other items are

pupils. One room is already equipped with 30 indi-
vidual booths, 265 reading books, 240 special reading
skill books, 30 reading skill films, and such machine
aids as shadowscopes, accelerators, and tachitron
tachistoscopes. Expansion is planned.
Art students have all sorts of equipment to use in
painting, drawing, sculpturing and making ceramics.

complete dance drum outht, plus four glockenspiels.
Tremendous windows that form the outer walls of
the buildings fill the classrooms with light. Recessed
fluorescent lights in the ceiling, and over the chalk-

Books at the school are distributed on a rental basis.
Pupils pay four dollars a semester and are furnished
whatever they need. The bookstore was located in
temporary quarters during the first semester but
finally moved into an excellent location in the center
of the building, at che start of the second semester.
Mrs. Taylor stocks an unusual variety of supplies in

two counseling rooms throughout the building pro-

An unusual choice of classes in the new school's
curriculum made it possible for both college-bound
pupils and those who would finish their studies with
a high school diploma, to get a good educational
preparation for their futures.
Besides the basic subjects of English, math, history,
science and languages, courses in typing, business law,
shorthand, foods and clothing, graphic arts, general
shop, printing, drafting, band, orchestra, chorus, and
home nursing were provided for pupil choice in mak-
ing four-year plans.
The curriculum set-up was on a temporary basis
because when the second year in the new school opens,
freshmen will be enrolled in the junior high school
buildings and North Central will house only the three
upper classes. This will involve eliminating some
courses and adding others. The present freshmen are
to be the only class to spend four years in the school.

Every school has as part of its traditions the elec-
tion of queens to preside over various functions.
North Central made its first move toward establishing
such oHices when Betty Lankford was elected as
queen of the Fall Sports Dance. R.0.T.C. boys, who
had already selected three girls to sponsor their units,
chose Nancy Turner to reign over the Military Ball.

received this honor at North Central.

In spite of the casual dress affected by controversial
pop singer, Elvis Presley, teen-agers were gradually
getting away from careless attire and into a "new-
looki' of neat smartness this year. Ivy League clothes
invaded the middle west, and everything Went striped,
buttoned-down, and narrow shouldered. Old-time
favorites, saddle oxfords and ankle socks, remained,
but shell-pumps called "flats', were first choice with
most teen-agers. Boys were resplendent in white
bucks or saddle oxfords.
Three-quarter length car-coats were important,
sweaters and skirts were almost a uniform, striped
or checked caps became a "must" for boys. Hair-dois
ranged from severe "little boy', styles to pony-tails
for girls. The popular burr cut for boys showed faint
signs of diminishing popularity, probably because the
price of hair-cuts went up to 51.50 and 51.75.
Skirts for girls varied from the slim to the ex-
tremely wide, flared by gorgeously feminine "crino-
lines." The "sissy shirtwaistn was a softened version
of the formerly tailored style. Both teachers and
parents sighed with relief as they once again saw truly
feminine, attractive girls, and smartly dressed boys,
after years of addiction to sloppiness.

The huge stage, modern equipment, colorful interior, and the ease of Weaver, Linda Helm, and Nancy Bugh, were among the first to try
viewing from any place in the audience, delighted North Centralites out the new seats and to get an impression of what playing on the
when the auditorium was opened. Dotty Henry, Hugh Kirtland, Terry stage would be like.
Extra-curricular activities to teen-agers rank almost equally in importance
with classroom work. This was proved when twenty-one clubs became thriv-
ing organizations during North Central's first year of existence. Each person
had the distinction of being a charter member of the club he joined, something
that would never happen again. Musically inclined teen-agers joined one of
the vocal or the instrumental groups and practiced for public appearances.
Those with a flair for publications, published the school newspaper, annual,
and wrote publicity. Other activities in which North Centralites took part
were of a service nature. Workers in the library, bookstore, offices, and cafe-
teria were of great value in relieving busy administrators.

North Central fans started early to boost their teams. Even though
football games were not played at home, the Panthers were assured of
enough home-school people to make themselves heard as they cheered
lustily. fI,lHL'l'l' flit'fIH'I'j Girls in the special cheering section, formed

Although North Central teams were in the forma-

were always on hand with yells and music to cheer
their classmates on to victory. Some joined the Pep
Band which gave N. C. a musical boost in the form
of rock and roll and the traditional marches. Gthers

Not all students joined special groups to support

Life in ancient Rome became more real to students
who joined the Latin Club. They observed holidays in

The last of the Language Arts clubs to be formed at North Central
during the 1956-57 school year was the French club. Membership in
this group was open only to those students who were currently enrolled
in their second semester of French, or who had already completed at
least two years of study in it.
Members met once a month after school with their sponsor, Mr.
William Bugher, to learn more about the French people, their culture,
country, and language, and to promote an interest in France among
North Central students.
Although the group was not very active during its first year, many
members carried on regular correspondence with French pen pals,
securing first-hand information about the country in this way. Other
activities, including puppet shows and skits presented in French, were
discussed as possible programs for the coming year. Also, a sidewalk cafe
party for the Latin, Spanish, and German Departments was planned as
a project to be carried out sometime next year.
Officers, Ruthie Adams, presidentg Susan Harvey, vice president,
Carolyn Wiley, secretaryg and Cindy Kernahan, treasurer, Were elected
at one of the first meetings.
Hi-Y Promotes Idea of Service to Others
"Clean sports, clean living, clean speech, clean thoughts,
and clean scholarship" was selected as the code of conduct
by members of North Central High School's Hi-Y organ-
ization, affiliated with the International Hi-Y and the
YMCA. This fellowship was organized by NCHS boys to
promote the ideals of Christianity among the people of
Washington Township and to render service to the school.
North Centralites took part in city-Wide activities this t
year when Jerry Miller represented Nationalist China, and
Dale Sering headed the delegation from the Philippines at
the annual Model United Nations held in the House
Chamber of the State House each spring.
Mr. John Wendling was an apt sponsor for the group.
His international understanding, gained through four years
of Working in South America and extensive tours through-
out Europe, prepared him for Work with young people.

by Mr. Kenneth D. Patton.
Knowing facts about current news gave North Central an easy
1500-1050 win over the contestants from Ladywood High School when
the two teams met on November 29. A celestial globe was awarded to
the Winners by Mrs. Jean Kaufman of the Star Womeimis Department,
who judged the meet.
On February 21, the group from Speedway High School traveled to
meet North Central for the second round of the elimination tourney.
This time N. C. was defeated by a score of 2700-2650 in one of the
closest encounters of the 1956-57 season, and completed their competi-
tion for the year.
People With Flair for Drama Band Together
Advance publicity on the new auditorium, with its
unusually large stage and exceptional lighting and
acoustical facilities, was so exciting that starting a
drama club was no problem at all. Over 130 boys and
girls joined. Mrs. Betty Randall, drama teacher, was
the logical choice for a sponsor.
In the workshop sessions run by the club, members
were given the opportunity to learn more about such
phases of theatrical work as acting, designing scenery
and costumes, make-up techniques, the management
of drama troupes, and the duties of stage hands and
The more than one hundred members also attended
Civic Theater productions, played host to the Thes-
pian troupe from Arsenal Technical High School,

The drastic shortage in the teaching profes-

articles in 1956-57. North Central did its part
in relieving the situation when a chapter of
Future Teachers of America was established.
These girls ffor boys were not interested appar-
entlyj learned about educational requirements,
working conditions, job opportunities, and sal-
aries in their chosen profession.
Because this group was not organized until the
second semester, only a very few plans could be
carried out. However, meetings with club spon-
sor Mrs. Edith Reese were held on alternate
Mondays to elect officers, plan panel discussions,
discuss choice of speakers, and arrange field trips
for future meetings. Members also attended the
program entitled, 'lWhy Be a Teacher," which
was sponsored by Kiwanis International, and
Delta Kappa Gamma Society of Indianapolis.

One of the first groups organized was the North
Central Debate Club. Its purpose was to give mem-
bers an opportunity to improve their speaking tech-
niques, to learn how to organize pertinent facts, and
to become acquainted with parliamentary procedure
through the medium of planned debates.
The first semester was devoted to Writing and
adopting the constitution and by-laws, electing offi-
cers, and making plans for future meetings. When
the group lost its original sponsor, Mrs. Caroline
Brunner, who resigned at mid-term, a new one, Mrs.
Marion Dryden, took over.
Special talks by club members, and regular business
meetings, Held trips to hear other schools' debate
teams were scheduled so that new ideas could be

members could improve their techniques in debate.

school year Was the North Central Stamp and Coin
Club. The aim of the organization was to help stu-
dents who were interested in such a hobby, by giving
them an opportunity to trade stamps and coins for
others they did not already have. Some, who did not
own collections, were encouraged to attend meetings
so that they might make up their minds as to whether
they would be interested in this hobby.
Talks on rare stamps and coins were part of the
program given on alternate Wednesdays. Members
also discussed methods of obtaining items they
wanted, and of preserving their collections.
Miss Ruth Lesley and Lt. Charles R. Wilhelm were
chosen to sponsor the group because they are both
avid stamp and coin enthusiasts.

important in America's secondary education system.
Therefore, When North Central was planned, provi-
sions were made for every conceivable device available
in that field.
Someone had to operate the movie projectors, rec-
ord players, tape recorders, and the public address
system, so students who were interested in learning
the methods, requested an organization. Mr. Frank
Rhea volunteered to be their faculty sponsor and
began to teach them.
Members were assigned to operate the machines
Whenever teachers wished to use them to supplement
classroom work. By using only each person,s study
hall time, a program Was set up so that someone was
on call every hour of the day. Others ran the public
address system before and after school, for announce-
ments or for entertainment.

Electronics Projects Interest unior Scientists
Each year more and more high school graduates
have made plans to enter college to study some phase
of science, but have found that it was extremely
helpful to have had some previous technical prepara-
tion. To aid students in meeting this situation, the
Electronics Club was organized early in the 1956-57
Members met each Monday in the physics labora-
tory to hear one of their sponsors, Mr. Kenneth
Robinson, lecture on topics of elementary electronics
and on its practical applications. Each member was
then encouraged to apply the information he had
gained at club meetings towards the completion of
individual projects. Many undertook to build radios.
One ambitious student, Charles Andrews, built his
own Van de Graaff generator for exhibition in the
Ofhcers of the group were Charles Andrews, presi-
dent, Boyce Rensberger, vice president, and Delmar
Boyce Rensbergcr, vice-president, and Frank Stcldt checked the voltage
of a Hi-Fi amplincr through the use of a Cathode Ray Oscilloscope.
Among North Central High School students were
many aviation enthusiasts. So great was their interest
in planes that these boys and girls requested permis-
sion to form the Aeronautics Club. When students
were invited to join, the large number responding
made it necessary for the sponsors, Mrs. Elizabeth
Coffin and Mr. Frank Rhea, to divide the club into a
boys' wing and a girls, wing.
After the organizational matters of membership,
qualifications, and club dues were taken care of,
members began to look around for someone who could
teach them more about airplanes. Mr. Frank Olin,
ground school instructor at Shank's Airport, was
their choice. Soon club meetings were being held on
Wednesday evenings when lessons in basic aeronautics,
air safety principles, and the fundamentals of han-
dling the smaller planes were given.
Aviation requires a knowledge of science. Officers Ed McDonald, treas-
urerg Ronnie Gill, vice-president, and Jim Wead, secretary, looked
up a technical term. President, Bob Hendrickson, was absent.

Golf Enthusiasts Tee Off in the Spring
The location of North Central in a neighborhood
abounding with golf courses and driving ranges cre-
ated interest in a club for boys and girls who enjoyed
that sport. Mr. Norman L. Harner and Mr. Robert
Watson agreed to act as co-sponsors for the organiza-
The Hrst meetings of the year were occupied with
electing officers and setting up a spring program.
Scheduled events included educational golf films,
trips to driving ranges, and individual outings. Mem-
bers also hoped to arrange a handicap tournament
with trophies for winners.
Next year, the golf enthusiasts hope to get their
activities underway in time to plan outings for both
the fall and spring seasons. Another suggestion was
to invite a professional golfer to put on an exhibition
at North Central and then to give members pointers
on bettering their game.
Dave Iippcrson, president, showed Sharon Goodwin, treasurer, how to
grip a golf club. Mary Lou Stark, vice pressident, and Nancy Varncs,
secretary, were not pictured.
Archery Club Enjoys Outdoor Target Practice
Twenty-nine students Who enjoyed the ancient
sport of shooting with bows and arrows formed one
of the first clubs to be organized at North Central.
Membership qualifications and the choice of club
pin designs were first matters of business settled by
the group. In addition, "shooting" meets were held
on the high school's archery range Whenever weather
permitted. Members were given instructions by Presi-
dent Mike Klezmer, who held the Indiana State Junior
Championship in Archery, and by the club sponsor,
Mr. Robert P. LeMaster.
During other meetings, members listened to dis-
cussions concerning the history of their chosen sport
and ways to improve their skills in it. They also
watched demonstrations such as the one about the
ll 3, '
uses of shot gun, field, target, and fishing arrows,
presented early in December by Vice-President Dick
Officers of the group were Mike Klezmer, presi-
dent, Dick Hayworth, vice president, Karen Kiger,

Their 'Shooting Eyes'
Girls and boys who wanted to improve their skill
with guns, especially rifles, joined together to form
the North Central Rifle Club. Lt. Charles R. Wilhelm
was the logical choice for the club,s sponsor, since he
is also the commandant of the school,s R.O.T.C. unit.
Throughout the winter, members met at the down-
town YMCA each Thursday evening. There they held
target practice and learned to shoot accurately from
standing, sitting, kneeling, and prone positions.
When spring came, the group began to look for an
outdoor rifle range, but no satisfactory one was avail-
able. Mr. James Adams then offered to let them use a
portion of his farm if they would prepare their own
area. The first warm days saw the more ambitious
members busily clearing away the underbrush, and
setting up targets.

Bowlers oin Club to Enjo Popular Sport
Fifty students decided they wanted to form a
league, and the Bowling Club was organized. Mr.
Harold Freeland agreed to be the group's sponsor.
The Broad Ripple Bowling Alleys were reserved for
each Wednesday afternoon, and 10 five-member
teams were quickly formed. Soon members were roll-
ing two games each week. Secretary Pat Kelley re-
corded each person's scores, computed individual
handicaps, and posted team records.
After several weeks of deliberation, the group de-
cided to become affiliated with the National Junior
Bowling Congress. Membership cards were secured,
and the league participated in the National City
Bowling Tournament in which they competed for
high game honors with NJBC members from all over
Indianapolis. Throughout the year, league awards
were given to outstanding bowlers.
Bob Dugan and John Bryant got together before a game to compare

Boots and Saddle Set Up Plans for Future
Wlieii the club program got underway at North
Central High School, some interesting requests for
organizations were made. One of these was from a
group of students Who enjoyed the sport of riding
down the bridle paths on horseback. Mr. Robert
Watson consented to sponsor the group. Members
selected the name "Boots and Saddle Clubi' for the
newly formed organization.
Because the club got a late start, it was not too
active this year. However, members did get together
to discuss ways of improving their riding techniques,
and properly caring for their horses, as well as to
swap tales of horsemanship. Plans were also made to
go on many equestrian outings.

Each year more and more young women enter
colleges and special nursing schools to take nurses'
training. In line with this trend, a chapter of Future
Nurses of America was organized by fifty-four North
Central students with Miss Mary Doyle, school nurse,
as its sponsor. Its purpose was to give interested per-
sons an opportunity to learn more about their chosen
Even though this group Was organized compara-
tively late in the school year, ofhcers were quickly
elected and a program was planned to include both
community and school service projects, field trips to
hospitals and pharmaceutical companies, and discus-
sions of requirements and opportunities for careers in
nursing. Special social functions besides the necessary
business meetings were regularly held, too.
Cobina Ferracane, vice-president, Judy Lybrook, secretary-treasurer,

Artistic persons interested in supplementing class-
room instruction and in spending more time sketch-
ing and painting, formed the North Central Art Club
with a charter group of approximately 25. Miss Zelda
Zoe Rife, who taught all the art courses offered the
first year, sponsored the club.
Plans were made to meet twice a month, once to
enjoy an afternoon of developing art projects, and
once for a more serious meeting to hear special reports
and discussions. Field trips were to be scheduled to
take the place of the second meeting whenever ad-
visable. But the club was one of the last to be formed,
so after organizational problems were ironed out, it
was found that other activities would have to be
postponed until next year.
Kay Browning, secretary-treasurerg Marean Weaver, program chairman,
and Ann Takayoshi, president, were instrumental in forming the Art
Club. Gretchen Schafer, assistant program chairman, was not pictured.
ROTC akes Future Military Service Easier
North Central's R.O.T.C. unit was set up in September as a regular
class with forty cadets participating. As soon as enough equipment
arrived and school was operating on a full day basis, Lt. Charles R.
Wilhelm, the unit's commandant, began teaching the group military
procedure. Time was spent indoors learning about equipmentg outdoors,
boys drilled and practiced handling guns.
But all was not work, for during their first winter, the boys chose
three sponsors, Marcia Black, Nancy Turner, and Barbara Freeland, and
began making plans for their Hrst Military Ball. Officers of the R.O.T.C.
units in many Marion County high schools were invited to attend the
dance which was held in the high schoolis student center the evening of
March 23. At that time the cadets elected Nancy Turner to reign as

High school publicity is an intensely competitive
field among Marion County teenagers and their re-
spective schools. Three large newspapers, the Indian-
apolis Star, Indianapolis News, and Indianapolis
Times, use school news releases as does also the North
Side Topics. But with 17 schools in the county, all
stories that were released for publicity this year had
to be unusually interesting, timely, and Well Written
to rate space in the papers. Therefore, it soon became
evident that a News Bureau was a "must', since only
five persons were volunteering to help. Another
journalism class was formed at the beginning of the
second semester to handle newspaper publicity. Then
the students, stories began to flow in a steady stream
to the desks of the school news editors. Mrs. Kathleen
Keilman was named the sponsor of this group.
The original group of correspondents for downtown newspapers, Kay
Cooper for the Teen Star, Chuck Harrison for the Star, Linda Brandt
for the News, and Judie Mitchell and Mike Clark for the Times,
looked over recent publicity about their school.

To produce a yearbook the first year that a school
is in existence can be quite a task. Six staffers attended
the summer journalism institute at Indiana Univer-

draw up a dummy for the Northerner and to learn
the latest trends in yearbook architecture. Then,
when school started, editors and assistants began the
long grind of nine months' hard work.

The school newspaper got off to a slow start this
year. The intention was to use the school print shop
and to get out one issue each two weeks. But the
presses were slow in arriving. For a while, Mr. John
Shirley, the sponsor, commuted back and forth to
Carmel where the paper was printed.
Eventually, the print shop was completed and the
Hrst home-produced issue came out. Then, as so often
happens, the new machinery turned temperamental
and had to be adjusted. For more than two months
North Central was without a paper. But all problems
were eventually solved and the paper again came out

and Quintet also showed they were able players.

An excellent coaching staff was chosen to initiate the athletic program at
North Central. But these men knew that the first year would be one of
preparation rather than of accomplishment, since it takes time to whip a
winning team into shape. Therefore no one was discouraged when the losses
column was filled more often than the winning one. The chief concern of the
coaches was with the signs they saw of a dawning team spirit and enthusiasm,
of cooperation of the boys with each other, and of increased skill. It meant
the kind of gradual growth that achieves more important results in the long
run. To the freshmen went the honor of putting the first trophy in the case-
one for cross-country.

North Central a victory. fliigfrlj North Central and Carmel's play-
On a hot day in August, about eighty boys, wear-
ing new football uniforms, began practice on the
rocky, dusty field next to Nora School. Equipment
was the finest that could be purchased and new
tackling and blocking dummies were available for
acquiring the correct techniques.
The long, hard work-outs in the "Dust Bowl" paid
off when the first North Central team made a fine
start by defeating Carmel 27-13. For lack of a play-
ing Held, the contest was held at Broad Ripple. The
Panthers traveled down to Greensburg for their sec-
ond game. Although playing a somewhat shaky brand
of football, they triumphed by a score of 13-0. The
rest of the season was unfortunate for the North
Centralites, who were unable to break into the win-
ning column again.
After losing to Wood, 32-7, to Greenheld, 14-13,
in a very close game, and to Frankfort, 19-0, the
home team faced Fort Wayne Central for the final

Fort Wayne, bounding back in the second period,
edged the North Central gridmen out, 28-21, in one
of the most thrilling contests of the season.
Bob Beck, junior fullback, and Larry Gold, senior
center, were rated honorable mention as members of
the All-County team selected by the Indianapolis
Star. Beck was also high point man for the squad.
The season's record of two wins and five losses fails
to tell the entire story. Balancing the lack of previous
experience, and the fact that there was only one senior
in the school this year, against the record of wins and
losses, proves that actually the team's showing was
good. The Panthers topped their opponents in first
downs and rushing yardage.
For lack of a stadium at North Central, all the
football games had to be played on the opponents'
home field or on a rented one. However, next fall the
home field should be ready for the season's play.

North Central,s reserve and freshman football
teams started the 1956 season by playing Warren
Central in a "double-header' on the opponents' home
field. In order to have enough time for both games,
the quarters were shortened and the North Central
teams were never able to get started. Both games
ended in a 0-0 tie.
The next reserve games were with Noblesville and
Southport respectively, and the home team suffered
defeats in both encounters. Meanwhile, the freshmen,
doing considerably better, walloped Southport in a
well-played game and won another decisive battle
against Lawrence Central.

North Central hoopsters finished the 1956-S7 bas-
ketball season by advancing to the semi-finals of the
After a slow season of only one win in nineteen
encounters, the Central round-ballers again proved
that when it comes to sectionals, season records don't
mean a thing. Facing Granville Wells on the first
night, the Central five finally ended on top of a 54-Sl
score after a see-saw game. The fired-up Panthers
were then matched against Lebanon. At the end of
the first quarter, the scoreboard showed Central to
be in the lead by a score of 16-14. But Lebanon,
coming back stronger, outscored the Central netters
by four points to take a lead of two points at the end
of the half.
The sharpshooting Panthers grabbed a lead of two
points in the second half and were never again behind
as they went on to win their third game of the season.
The hardwood five finally bowed to Thorntown,
the eventual winner of the Zionsville Sectionals, by a
score of 46-39.
In the regular season's play, Central lost to Carmel
67-44, Zionsville 38-35, and Warren Central 76-32,
before outscoring Beech Grove 59-50.
The Panthers failed to win again until the sectional
tourney where they wound up the season with a
climactic finish. Ed Bryan, Jim Cluley, and Stan
Hines were high scorers for the team.
The reserve team was again made up almost en-
tirely of freshmen, and having completed a schedule
identical to that of the varsity, compiled a record of
seven wins and ten losses.

with a 5-9-1 record. Their hrst match with the Deaf

by a score of 31-16. The next encounter with New
Castle proved to be a hard battle for the inexperi-
enced grunt and groaners, but they tied the score
25-25. ln the following meet the Panthers fought
hard to earn a clear-cut victory over Park, 41-16.
After losses to Marion and Harry E. Wood, team
members were encouraged by wins over Franklin

As the season progressed, the mat men found it
impossible to defeat the so-called "tough-to-beat"

one for the girls. The sliding panel, which is electric-

Administration and Facult Spend Busy Year
KAIIUITJ Dean B. Smith, principal, was one of the busiest men in the
When Dean B. Smith accepted the position of
principal of North Central High School, leaving
Marion where he had been administrator for eight
years, he probably didn't realize what a tremendous
job he faced. But he soon found his personal life had
to be more or less shelved for a while, since the sum-
mer was spent in organization and planning, and the
winter in carrying out those plans for the new school.
Days blended into nights as far as his school duties
As principal he had to carry a tremendous burden.
On the one hand were the parents with their great
interest in the new school, on the other, there were
1083 boys and girls to mold into a unified, loyal stu-
dent body, and 56 faculty members to indoctrinate
with the ideals and policies of the school system.
As is natural in any new and untried situation, Mr.
Smith had to consider numerous and diversified opin-
fLowc'rj Callison Simon, vice-principal, paused for his picture.
ions before making decisions. Through it all, he
maintained a calm and patient attitude that amazed
his associates. No matter how trying the day, his
temper remained unrufiled and his optimism high.
His was the long view of the project and the courage
to ride out situations in the firm conviction that
everything would settle into its allotted place for
creating a special first-class commissioned school
where none had existed before.
Callison Simon, dynamic and enthusiastic, was Mr.
Smith's assistant. In this, his first year as an adminis-
trator, he began to learn the problems of dealing with
young people from both the parent,s angle and the
faculty's. He visibly gained in stature as the year
progressed, growing in the poise essential to admin-
istrative duties centered chiefly around attendance,
discipline, and transportation, as they pertain to
numerous activities in a busy school year.
In Organization of New High School
Mr. Light had his offices in the administration building located at
the entrance to the hack road leading into North Central High School.
A very important part of a school is the ofiiee staff. Records of all
kinds, reports, bulletins and many other items are handled by the
competent women in North Centrnl's main office. Mrs. Lydia Mitchell,
records secretary, took Mrs. Dora Greenough's place when the latter
moved to Florida. Mrs. Estelle Bchan is switchboard-receptionist, and
Mr. Etfereff Ligbf, coming from Rushville, Indiana,
where he was superintendent of schools for ten years,
came into the Metropolitan District enthused with
the desire to Work closely with parents in fulfilling
their dream of a school. His was the task of organ-
izing the administrative functions for providing the
necessary building facilities, and instructional staff.
He, too, bent all his energies toward completing the
job by September, working night and day through
the preceding winter and summer months. Screening
applicants so as to provide the best possible faculty,
making a thousand and one decisions, and working
in close harmony with the school board and parents,
kept him extremely busy.
All three men, Mr. Light, Mr. Smith, and Mr.
Simon shared a common goal--that of setting a high
standard of achievement for the new school, and of
complete dedication to its promotion.
All three faced difficult situations with aplomb,
and they felt a deep inner satisfaction when, in spite
of some delays and inconveniences, they evaluated the
year at its end and found it one of tremendous

Classes Hold Meetings, Elect Officers
The first Junior Class at North Central had an
unusual privilege. For two years they were to be "top
men" with no other class above them. Election of
officers took place early and results were announced
at a special dance. The group began to function as a
One of the largest projects undertaken by the class
was the Junior Spectacular, a glorihed vaudeville that
drew in actors from the entire student body. The
affair was a success both from a Hnancial and an
The next big project undertaken was the Junior
Prom. Candidates for king and queen were chosen by
members of the Junior class. Queen nominees included
Linda Brown, Barbara Freeland, Barbara Hammer,
Adra Heider, Sally Sage, Nancy Varnes, Marean
Wfeaver, Marilyn Vfestfall, Judy Whitacre, and Becky
Sam Bangs, Steve Browning, Ed Bryan, Larry
Coffey, Dick Fairchild, Bob Fuller, Dan Harlan, Dan
Kelley, Terry Martin, and jim Peterson were nomi-
nated as candidates for prom king.
Tom Ritterskamp, deceased president of the first Junior Class
of North Central.
On the morning of November 7, 1956, students of
North Central were shocked to hear of the tragic
death of Tom Ritterskamp, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul
Ritterskamp, following an automobile accident the
At Broad Ripple, a brilliant scholastic record gave
Tom the distinction of being voted "Most Outstand-
ing Studentv in his freshman and sophomore years.
He was also prominent in cross-country at BRHS for
two years, and at North Central for the 1956 season,
earning his letter at both schools.
In mid-October Tom was elected to the office of
president of his class and had not yet presided over a
meeting when his death occurred. His fellow-class-
mates chose not to elect another president since Tom
had been such a capable and well-liked person. Marcia
Maher, vice-president, took over as acting president
and continued as such for the entire year.
Miss Gletha Noffsinger and Mr. Robert Watson
were the class sponsors.

system for Washington Township. The shareholders
approved an amendment to the articles of incorpora-
tion to authorize the building of more than one
school. This permitted the corporation to plan on
erecting one or two junior high schools as Well as a
senior high school.
It was estimated that S200,000 would need to be
raised by public subscription to launch the school
building program. These funds would be used for the
purchase of land and for preliminary expenses.
Arrangements were made for the sale of debentures
and additional stock in the School Building Corpora-
tion. On December 17, 1953, the trust agreement was
signed under which funds were deposited by persons
desiring to purchase debentures. Solicitation of funds
was begun by more than 500 volunteers, through the
sale of stock, deposit for debentures, and contribu-
tions to the Washington Township Foundation. On
January 11, 1954, purchase of the site of the senior
high school was approved by the Board of Directors.
The Everett I. Brown Company was employed as
architect for the high school.
In December of 1954, advertisements for construc-
tion bids were published and in successive weeks in
February, 1955, construction bids were published for
the high school, the east junior high school, and the
west junior high school. On February 28, 1955, con-
tracts for the construction were awarded by the
Board of Directors.
A public hearing was held March 7, 1955, by the
Township Advisory Board, on the lease under which
the township agreed to pay the School Building Cor-
poration rent for the use of the schools being con-
structed. The trust indentures to secure the Hrst
mortgage bonds and debentures were approved and
on April 7 the lease became fmal. First mortgage
bonds and debentures were sold on May 4 and in
record time, only eight days later, they were delivered
and funds for the construction of three schools, one
high and two junior high schools, totaling 36,822,000
were deposited with Indiana National Bank as trustee.
During the time of the development of the School
Building Corporation representatives of the parent-
teacher groups of Washington Township were also
making a thorough study of their school government.
It was determined that the politically elected trustee
system was not the type of school government to give
them the form of school government they wanted.
After a great deal of research and consultation with
leaders throughout the state and country, the com-
munity decided to change their form of school gov-
ernment and establish a non-partisan elected School
Board which would in turn hire a Superintendent of
Schools and thereby establish a school government
similar to the city system throughout Indiana.
In order to get this accomplished, a trustee and an
advisory board had to run on the platform of ac-
complishing this. In the election of the Township
Trustee and the Advisory Board in November, 1954,
Mr. Clifton Hirschman was elected trustee and his
Advisory Board was George E. Dougherty, A. Ham-
ilton Gardner, and H. L. Pond. The community then
realized that the State Legislature would have to
create legislation in order to effect the type of school

organization they desired. During the 1955 General
Assembly legislation was enacted permitting a town-
ship to create a non-partisan system of school govern-
ment. One of the requirements of the law was that
555k of the voters had to sign a petition requesting
the trustee and his advisory board to instigate pro-
cedure for establishment of a School Board. This was
done with many more hundreds of signatures than
were necessary and the Board of Education of the
Metropolitan School District of Washington Town-
ship was established as of August 1, 1955.
In the meantime, the township trustee and his
advisory board had been interviewing and going over
credentials of some 40 to 50 people who might be
selected as Superintendent. The Board of Education
appointed Everett Light as of the lst of August,
1955. The trustee and his advisory board, according
to the law, then appointed a fifth Board member,
Mr. A. Logan Steele, and these five continued as the
School Board until the next following Primary Elec-
tion. At that election, held in May, 1956, the present
Board of Education was elected, they being: A. Ham-
ilton Gardner, presidentg A. Logan Steele, vice-presi-
dentg George E. Dougherty, secretary, John T. Bar-
nett, treasurerg and Mrs. Ruth A. Davis, member.
Ground breaking ceremonies for the three schools
were held on May 16, 1955.
Names of the three schools were selected by vote
of the residents of Washington Township. Names
were placed in nomination by school children and
school patrons who prepared essays giving reasons for
their suggestions. Winners were "North Central High
School" by Roberta Swartzell, 8th grade, Fall Creek
Schoolg "Eastwood Junior High School" by Barbara
Colby, 8th grade, Fall Creek School, "Westlane
