For this reason we would like to dedicate the 1962-1963 yearbook of Northfield High School to the future of the school and to each student who attends classes here. V SUPERINTENDENT Mr. Ira L. Huntington Jyietropolitaii PRESENT AAEMBERS Mr. Charles Tiede— Attorney for the Board, Mr. Herman Whitsel, Mr. Robert Clark, Mr. Elbert Carr, Mr. John Chamberlain, and Mr. Earl Dyson. PAST MEMBERS Mr. Glenn Cox, l hr. Gilbert Talmage, Mr. Johnathan Faust, Mr. Fred Petty, Mr. Lyman Gottschalk, and Mr. Earl Kern. Admniinis trail ion SECRETARY Mrs. Shirley Atkinson BUILDING AND GROUNDS SUPERINTENDENT Mr. C. O. Duker BOOKKEEPER Mrs. Helen Graham p Fiiacipa We have rapidly approached the final days of our first year at Northfield. Many important " firsts " have occurred during this time— the first day of school, the first football game, the Christmas dance, dedication of our school, the first Northfield Junior-Senior Prom, and most recently, the first Northfield High School Commencement. Our school has been established as a consolidated unit to provide improved and varied facilities for both the youth and adults of the community. We believe that the patrons of Northfield know that education is a primary part of a great nation ' s foundation; to build that foundation, it is necessary that young people acquire certain fundamental skills, habits, and attitudes. Only in this way can they become responsible members of their communities and of their country. I have been privileged to serve as principal of Northfield this year. This has given me a greater perspective of education— its changes and its continuing challenges. To the Class of 1963, and to the future classes of Northfield, may your successes be rewarding. May you also remember this- " There is a destiny that makes us brothers; None goes his way alone: All that we send into the lives of others Comes back into our own. " Edwin Markham iz£.o€d Vice=P Fimcipa 1 I feel that this first year at North- field has been one that will long be remennbered by many. Where else but in a country and community like ours could the remarkable achievement of con- solidating four areas into one be accom- plished with so little turmoil and strife. We have a lot to be grateful for in this our fine new building and the educational opportunities presented here. I know that as your guidance director many things did not get accomplished that were hoped for, but ground work has been laid for the future that will offer to each and every student the type of service he needs and wants. It has indeed been a pleasure to be associated with so many fine students and faculty as has been my privilege dur- ing this school year. The first year of Northfield athletics has been a complete success. The student body, the faculty, and the parents as well as other patrons have made this so. In the future when we look back on 1962- 63 we will have great recollections of our first athletic teams. Progress, however, will be our pass- word. We look forward to our new foot- ball field, baseball diamond, a complete physical education field. We look forward to adding wrestling, tennis, and gymnas- tics to our programs. Greatness will be achieved by a deter- mined group; the Norsemen have proven this year to want to be this type of group. Good luck to the class of 1963, our first alumni. Never give up the classes to follow.

According to the recommendations of the National Association of National Honor Societies we are allowed fifteen per cent of the senior class and ten per cent of the junior class as members of the Northfield Chapter. A student must have at least a B average during his high school years on his semester averages. He must be above average in addition to Scholarship, in Character, Service, and Leadership. The faculty may vote on any of the students who are eligible scholastically and from this first vote a faculty committee consisting of the principal. National Honor Society sponsor, and at least four others make the final selection as to who will become members. At any time during his junior or senior year a student drops below the B average or is involved in serious discipline problems he will be dropped from the Society. This will be determined from his semester averages and from the faculty committee. 44 ' ciemce amcll Matk CUl ROW 1: M. Smith, L. Eckerley, M. Ferrier, P. Hippensteel, A. Alger.

Although I can thank you in words, I can never really thank you for all the wonder- ful experiences I enjoyed. When you read this, I will probably be back home on my ' Island of Sunshine, ' never more to freeze in below zero winters! But I will always have with me the memory of a wonderful year in Indiana, and particularly at North- field. However, 1 hope I won ' t always have with me the twenty pounds I gained during the year! (Thanks to good American cooking). I want to say " thank you " to the teachers for being so friendly and understanding, and most of all for putting up with me this long. Good luck and happiness to all of you. Your friend, Rosemary Rayside Harbor View St. George Barbados, West Indies 50 A P age o IT oinnoFFo w 4xy llluminda de la Cruz Pabalan from the Philippine Islands will be the American Field Service exchange stu- dent at Northfield 1963-1964.
