Show Hide text for 1976 volume ( OCR) Text from Pages 1 - 152 of the 1976 volume: “ " I G Ni Each person, as an individual, is ered more important than them- the crowd was long ago given up by many as a fad. People are more inter- ested in developing their own char- acter. An example of individualism was first initiated by our forefathers. By disagreeing with someone consid- person was faced with a decision, not only whether to be an individual but whether to stay with the majority. This causes us to realize why our an- niversary is called Independence Day. Opening 3 Though people ' s everyday prob- lems and decisions may not seem as important or drastic as these events, they are important to the individual. The solution of situations are up to the individual to work out. The people in the seventeen hundreds may not have realized how impor- tant their decisions would be or the significance they would hold. All this is why we believe: " If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhpas it is because he hears a dif- ferent drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away. " (Thoreau) Opening 5 Bicentennial is a fitting theme Excitement and tension filled the air, a drumroll was given until fi- nally the long-awaited moment ar- rived; the naming of the 1975-76 Homecoming queen. Much cheering and screaming was heard when the Senior candidate Pat Meston was named and crowned. Her court con- sisted of Junior Missy Mast, Soph- -omore Liz Reed, and Freshman Tammy Yentes. Senior football player Randy Good was given the honor of King. Other candidates were: Junior Kevin Baer, Sophomore Tony Tyner, and Freshman Nathan Vrooman. With Bicentennial as the Home- coming theme each class outdid themselves in creating imaginative floats, which made it a hard choice for the judges. The Junior class took first place with " We Declare a Vic- tory. The Freshmen sewed up sec- ond place with Betsy Ross. The Se- niors claimed third with the Liberty Bell, " Ring up a Victory, " and Soph- omores sunk a fourth place with the Boston Tea Party. " We Declare a Victory " was a fit- ting title as the mighty Norse beat North Miami 39-16 for the first Homecoming victory in seven years. 1. The Norsemen charge in, ready to beat North Miami. 2.

Simply Simon Simply Super As one saw the numerous black and white figures they may have wondered if they were watching a black and white movie; actually it was the opening scene to Simply Simon. This play was compiled of a mixture of works by Neil Simon, with dashes of Durnbaugh wit for narration. First came " The Sneeze, " a skit about a man who sneezed on a superior officer and made a mess out of the situation. " The Prisoner of Second Avenue " stole the audiences ' hearts next, portraying the effects of a robbery on a New York couple. With many hilarious antics, such as throwing spaghetti against the kitchen wall, " The Odd Couple " was a smash, completing the first act. Starting the Second act was " Sur- gery, " which was almost too real to be funny, as it was about an inexperi- enced dentist. " Plaza Suite " topped the show off, depicting a bride with the wedding day jitters, who locked herself in the bathroom. The scenes were tied together with colorful musical numbers. The evening with Neil Simon was quite successful. 10 Fall play 1. Portraying Neil Simon, Randy Lewis explains one of his stories to the audience. 2.

Anxious parents, Iris Tackett and Randy Lewis listen into the bathroom for a clue from the frightened bride, Linda Dixon. Fall play 11 Musicians or magicians; dances and convos Everybody loves a convo; whether they enjoy the content, variety, or just getting out of class. This year Northfield nas hosted singers, bands, and demonstrations. Each has been different and entertaining. Unlike convos, dances are outside the school day. Many students attend the dances and there is a lot of planning and preparation put into each one. The Christmas dance which was semi-formal was looked forward to by many for quite a while. The Sweetheart dance was casual and held the week after Valentines. The Fifties dance, Homecoming dance and various sock-hops were other so- cial gatherings held throughout the year. 1. This man ' s inginuity captivated the Junior High. 2. Dimensions in Brass entertained with many varieties of music. 3. The chorus filled the gym with Christmas songs. 4.

At 11:00 one may think there is a recurrence of the Gold Rush of ' 49; it is only the first lunch shift heading toward the cafeteria. The people eat- ing second shift impatiently watch the clock while the last shift ' s stom- achs growl loudly. The lunchroom is the center of friendship, fights, bad jokes, laughter, and occasionally eat- ing. To many, lunchtime is the high- light of the day, with fun times; guessing what the food is, trading for Favorites or dodging flying peas, Jello or cookies. It is truly an experience. 8. Mark Eiler opens his mouth, for once with- out his foot in it. 9. Everyday our taste buds are touched by the " Soybean Supremes. " 40. The chomping of many jaws fill the cafeteria with noise. 11. The cafeteria offered free lunches but it onlv lasted two weeks. 12. Rick Treska and Bob Clark splash the hash. Lunchtime 15 We Got Spirit Yes We Do! The cheerleaders and cheerblock are just a small part of Norse spirit. Many fans show up at the various sports cheering for the team and their efforts. Spirit days such as tie ' em up, sock ' em, and blue and grey day are popular and participated in by students and faculty. Spirit is shown by people huddling together during freezing football games, mak- ing signs and secret fans who bake and buy to boost their player ' s mo- rale. The uniqueness of the sectional hall decorations is just part of N.H.S. Our spirit reflects our pride in Northfield so " everybody yell! " OHSe ARi ft IV I.

On a Friday or Saturday night Wabash is just crawling with " cruis- ers. " These are people who contin- ually drive through and around the favorites, such as; McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Curb, A it W, Burger Chef and a few others. There is a lot of socia- lizing done and occasionally some eating. These places are a great fi- nale after a movie, a date, a dance, or even after watching television at home. Whether you " cruise Kroger " or munch on a Big Mac you are sure to have memories of lots of good times. 1. The Northfield basketball players and cheerleaders attack their food at The Curb. 2. Many feel there is " More to like there " as they bomb around Big B.C. 3. Whether vou eat or work there, it hard to resist Curb ' s food. 4. The " golden arches " hold a lot of appeal for manv NHS students. 5. Pizza ' s good whether vou like it thick or thin. Hangouts 17 Marvelous Mattress If one believes the Thespian motto: " Act well your part; there all your honor lies , then he surely knows that the cast and crew of ONCE UPON A MATTRESS can be proud. May 6, 7, and 8 are nights to remember. Audiences enjoyed " a vibrant performance by our own Carol Burnett-Iris Tackett-as Win- nefred the Woebegone. Who can for- get the hilarious yet often tender pantomime artistry of Randy Lewis Jester Jim Johnson, or the little loyish nature of Joe Stieglitz membered for that raucous laugh and constant nagging, while novice Robbie Keaffaber ' s wizard was a def- inite favorite of the court. Tender love songs, corny sentimentalities and lover s quarrels punctuated the e relationships of Dan Gillespie .u Faith Williams as a cast of fan- tastic dancers and singers took us into this comedic storyland. The en- tire tale was colorfully woven by Minstrel Doug Schuster. When the show closed, ten seasons of successful musical theatre were completed and more students can say " Remember when " II a i - • -• - «l A -rS Fun Behind the Mattress As the hands of the bandroom clock point to 7:45, the intensity of the moment becomes clear and ac- tors, actresses, directors, technicians, and musicians begin to group into the friendship circle which has be- come a tradition in NHS theater. Good luck pennies and kisses are handed out, last minute instructions are given, messages from well-wish- ers read, and " break a leg " becomes the best-remembered line of the eve- ning. This group, a well-oiled unit, thus begins another night of enjoy- able work as they collectively strive to do their best for " Mom. " For be- hind every show there is a successful technical crew, constantly working to make those on stage look and sound their best. Without the cos- tume designers, make-up artists, lighting technicians, scenery design- ers, seamstresses, properties man- agers, student directors, stage man- agers, musicians, directors and other student assistants, such a show would never be possible. ONCE UPON A MATTRESS was possible only be- cause, out of love, many students and faculty mi of themselves to each of us.

The gym was transformed into a wonder- land of rainbow colors, a fountain, and sparkling chandeliers. The theme " Precious and Few " was cho- sen and elaborated on by the junior class. The lobby was decorated with a fountain, benches, and imaginative false walls. The floor was constantly occupied with couples dancing both fast and slow. Cake and punch which momentarily contained a goldfish were served in one corner of the gym. The false ceiling and the Circus City Six created the mood. Many su- perstitions were erased as the thirteenth annual prom came to a successful end and a fine tribute to the bicentennial class of ' 76. 1. A little fast dancing and music add spice to the evening. 2. Some couples decide to relax and have some refreshments. 3 5. Swaying and moving to the music, couples feel the ro- mance in the air. 4.

Recognition fo- rewords given Once again a very successful hon- ors night came ana went. Recogni- tion was given to students who had been on the honor roll at least two or three times. Department awards were given and scholarship winners recognized. Many were honored on honors day at a school convocation for activities participated in and jobs well done. Some sport accomplish- ments were honored and because of effort put forth in athletics North- field received the " All Sports " trophy. An awards night was held for Drama and Speech. Many were rec- ognized for their efforts with the plays and accomplishments in speech. Tears, cheers Mixed Feelings cap off year! With a flurry of caps, gowns, bobby pins and tassles, the seniors prepared for the finale of their twelve years. The students waited anxiously as the hands on the library clock neared 8:00. The seniors in band left to play their last song while Kathy Dyson sang. Slowly the class of 76 filed into their lines and awaited the band to play the proces- sional. As each walked down the aisle with their partner they knew the big moment was nearing. " The Future Disease " was discussed by Valedictorian Debbie Brodbeck and the Saluatorian Sharon Slisher fol- lowed with her speech. Dr. John Kirkpatrick was the guest speaker. Soon, one by one, the students re- ceived their diplomas with cameras flashing. The class was introduced to the audience, no longer seniors but " The Graduates of 1976 " . 1.

Last minute preparations, good- byes, and tears are exchanged. 26 Graduation Graduation 27 28 Graduation w A lot behind A lot ahead! Remembering yesterday and dreaming about tomorrow are a large part of graduation. Mixed feel- ings are felt by each of the graduates. The exhilarated feeling one gets from the accomplishment of twelve years helps to tone down the antici- pation or the future. Though it may at times seem monotonous, school plays a big part in our everyday lives. It helps to mold our characters, bring together friends, and initiate learn- ing and experiences. Many will miss the lockerside chats, lunchtime, and classes. But there are new challenges ahead whether it is college, a job, or marriage. Everyone has their own thoughts and feelings as their hand closes around the diploma. When turning the tassles the seniors bid a fond farewell. NHS will always be remembered by the class of ' 76. 1. Debbie Zinsmeister adjusts her cap in front of the hall mirror. 2. Kavena Anderson hap- pily receives her diploma. 3. The graduates of 1976 face the audience and change their tas- sles to the left. 4. Graduates Peggy Haupert and April Karns lead the class out for the Re- cessional. 5. Maria Velez looks surprised as she Often people groan over things they are forced to do. Choice is a very important thing in a student ' s life as it helps him express and de- velop himself. The classes one takes tells a little about each character and his goals. Too many times people take classes because their companions are and not because it is best for them. This can be compared to when one goes through the cafeteria line. As one, does he choose the food he en- joys not the food his friends enjoy. Northfield is now producing a wide variety of classes. Departments such as English, math and social studies are rapidly expanding. With the larger selection of classes it is eas- ier for a person to develop into a more distinct individual and to hear more clearly his " different drummer. " 30 Academics To Be or Not toBe... Whether one is a Shakespeare buff or just leaving Dick and Jane, he is sure to find an English class that ap- peals to him. There is a large variety of choices in the English Depart- ment. After taking the required courses in 7th, 8th, and 9th grade, one is able to expand. They have the choice of semester courses such as Contemporary Lit.,Creative Writ- ing, Drama, and Forensics or nine week courses like short stories, science fiction, advanced com- position, and humor in lit. Journal- ism is also taught for those who would like newspaper experience. 1. Did you know Mr. Tyree ' s classes ever worked this hard? 2. With Science Fiction comes " Name That Tune, 2,000! " 3. English staff left to right: Mrs. Clark, Miss Landes, Miss Deem, Mrs. VanElls, Miss Durnbaugh, Miss Arnold, Mrs. Kitt. 32 English Trig is the " aftermath " of Algebra There are almost more math classes than one can count. The 7th and 8th graders learn the basics and then choose between General Math and Algebra I. It is then possible for one to take Geometry or Practical Math. If one finds they enjoy math or have an ability for it, Algebra II is next on the list with Senior Math fol- lowing. One finds they go from mul- tiplying and subtracting to square roots, theorems and corollaries, imaginary numbers and tri- fonometry. Math is a way for one to evelop reasoning powers and logic. 4.

Nearing completion the gymnasium leaves many scraps and leftovers. 34 New gym Flexibility is main asset of the new gym In May 1975 construction of the $800,000 new gym began. The new gym will give flexibility to the phys. ed. program. The boys can use one gym and the girls another. It has a laundry room, larger storage space, a co-ed training room, new locker rooms and remodeled coaches of- fices. This gym makes it possible for two sporting events to occur at the same time, a gymnastics program and a better wrestling program. It is the same size as the old seats 500 people, has a sports tread floor and an indoor track. New gym 35 36 Phys. Ed. Gym classes ' sport " variety Many times screams and laughter could be heard by students in study hall coming from the phys. ed. rooms. After class there is always a mad rush to be dressed by the time the bell has rung. Phy. ed. offers dif- ferent things which appeal to differ- ent people. Some of these things are basketball, softball, gymnastics, bowling, and track; more unusual ones are crab soccer and bombard- ment. Many feel this is a great period for working out frustrations and breaking the monotony of the day. 1. Hitting the ball in softball is a great feeling. 2. Scoring in bowling almost seems like new math for Roy Williams, Ken Frances, and Martin Watts. 3. Hitting the pins is easy enough, the problem is " where do those balls come from? ' 4. Coach Honeycutt, left, and Coach Coppler, right, do a great job in the phys. ed. department and spend a lot of time and energy. 5.

Walking into the building one is usually greeted by the noise of the Seeking of typewriters. Fingers fairly ew over the keys in either of the classes. Personal Typing, Typing I, and Typing II are attended by many of the students who would like to learn to type to help them with a job or just in classes. Shorthand is a very useful thing to know. Accounting and bookkeeping are two of the busi- ness courses taken by many of the students. This year the students did a [iroject with a fake company and earned to figure out how a business is run. I. Lisa Hoover concentrates on her typing while Patti Hall and Brenda Bneson have fun picking out errors. 2. Left to right Mrs. Brei- ner, Mr. Smith and Miss Landes run off copies for the business department. 38 History has Bicentennial Boost With all the bicentennial fuss the History department has a little pub- licity. Social studies is a very useful thing to take. It helps one to under- stand why things happen and how today ' s situations have come about. There are many courses offered to juniors and seniors like Recent U.S. History, Asian History, Values and Issues, and more. From seventh grade to twelveth grade history is re- quired with geography, World His- tory, U.S. History, and Gov Econ. 3. The magic circle in Mr. VVinegardner ' s his- tory class. 4. Recalling days of old are Mr. Winegardner, Mr. Price, Mr. Clark, Mr. Kal- tenmark and Mr. Miller. 5.

Despite the limitations of the language de- partment one doesn ' t notice the things not done because of the vari- ety of things that are done. French and Spanish are offered to the high school students. Scrabble, the lan- guage lab, speeches, projects, and conversations are a few of the things done in class. The foreign exchange students offered bits of their culture and a few people came and spoke about different countries. Some spe- cial things were done this year, one example was a French picnic. 1. Maria Velez tried to teach Caroline Kne- zevich and Jenny Deeter the Mexican hat dance but does not appear to have had suc- cess. 2. Linda Winters appears intrigued by the world of Spanish. 3. Mr. Fuschetto com- pares himself with the " hombre " on the bulle- tin board. 10 ' Note " how fun music is— Name That Tune Do re me fa sol la ti— do you enjoy music? For some the music classes are a relaxing part of the day. Some play instruments in the band while others turn to the natural resources of their voice. Both seperate and combined programs are put on by band and chorus. The type of music varies from modern pop to golden oldies. Pep sessions are livened up by the band playing the school song. The chorus department has per- formed in school convos. Both sev- enth and eighth graders are required to take some type of music course. There are many electives offered. Some students participated in honor choir and honor band. 4. Tune in to the music teachers; left to right- Mr. Trump, Miss O ' Haver, Mr. Walke. 5. A typical day in band class last period. The Science Department at North- field is headed by Marvin Mast. He is ably assisted by Bob Denari, Bill Neale, Tom Reahard and Dennis Walker. These instructors strive to prepare each student for a rigorous college schedule that will help each individual follow the path he chooses. The junior high classes learn about the basic sciences such as mat- ter and energy. The freshmen classes studied the biological aspect of science. The instructors for the lower grades strive to give each student as much individual help as possible. The high school science courses are all electives including Advanced Bio, Chemistry, Botany, and Physics. The elective classes are more difficult than the required courses but more emphasis is placed on individual study. 1. Allen Miracle and Mickey Strange concoct some evil looking potions in chemistry class. 2. Something funny seems to be happening in the chemistry room by the look in Mr. Mast ' s eyes (far left), Mr. Denari ' s smile, Mr. Neale ' s expression, Mr. Walker ' s stance, and Mr. Rea- hard ' s chuckle. 3.

I Wkj Home ec. sweet home ee. The whir of sewing machines ac- counts for the interesting display in the Home Ec. hall ' s showcase. The department teaches many practical things. The tantalizing aromas that fill the school are from students con- cocting meals. Girls plan their wed- dings, their dream house, learn about home nursing, nutrition, child care, and many other things. Also pressing for equal rights, many boys take bachelor ' s survival and learn many useful tricks. Fashion shows, break- fasts, and special demonstrations add variety to the Home Economics department 1. Mrs. Busch, left, and Miss McCovem, right, grade a sewing project. 2.

Largest of these projects were the five Bi- centennial murals that many of the students worked on in class and dur- ing several hours of their spare time. These projects are not onlv a salute to our nations 200th birthday, but also a fine display of the exceptional talent held by students here at N.H.S. 4.

Imagine someone speaking about the good rich soil with America the Beautiful playing in the back- ground; sounds like something from Green Acres! This is true devotion as shown by many of the boys who take Ag. Of course the music and touch- ing speeches are omitted but many enjoy the courses. Some courses of- fered are: Plant and Soil Science, An- imal Science, Farm Mechanics and Farm Management. These classes are usually enjoyed because they involve working with machines and crops. The Shop department also has the students work on projects. The basic skills of carpentry and construction are learned and put to use. Some things made by the students are pic- nic tables, loading shutes and feed bunks. 1. " Wood " you enjoy Shop class like these boys? 2.

The vocational school has had an excellent record in assisting it ' s graduates in locating employment in industry, businesses, hospitals, and other places. This pro- gram helps students develop desires and talents. Accounting, data pro- cessing, Beauty culture, Food ser- vice, Health occupations and office training are just a few choices. 48 Vocational 1.

It offers 17 different courses and is at- tended by six schools: NorthfieldL Southwood, Wabash, N. Manchester, N. Miami, and Peru. The school day consists of three consecutive hours either in the morning, afternoon, or evening. Thev are transported by bus back to NJi.S. for required courses. Some of the courses that especially attract bovs are: Ag. Mechanics, auto body repair, building trades, draft- ing, electronics, machine shop, print- ing and welding. 1. Doug Schuster and Rick Leach practice techniques in Machine shop while their in- structor observes. 2. Tom Curtis and Dick Hawkins prepare to weld. 3.

Athletics are a wdy for many to develop their assets, overcome their weaknesses, and learn to respect and work with others. Sportsmanship and teamwork are a large part of athletics. Each player must learn to compromise and share glory with his teammates, whether it be a group effort like foot- ball of an individual effort like golf. In sports competition can be tough, there are disappointments as well as successes for each person to deal with. The athletes learn to help each other and have fun times as well as knowledge of the game. As individ- uals we can have teamwork in our everyday lives as well as in games. We are faced with choices just like the participants in sports. Athletics is, in a small way, a preparation for life; so, " Go team— fight! " Sports 53 2975 Gridiron efforts net first championship The 1975 Fighting Norsemen Football Team accomplished a mile- stone in N.H.S. history by capturing the school ' s first football champion- ship. They became Co-Champs of the Three Rivers Conference beating North Miami (36-16) for the first Homecoming win since 1968, and by defeating Caston (18-12) in overtime in perhaps the most exciting game in local football history. The Norse were lead to their outstanding 7-3 season by the nine fine Senior ath- letes. The 1976 Seniors also have the finest three-year record in N.H.S. his- tory with 20 wins and 10 losses. The success of the 1975 team was keyed by a combination of fine Senior lead- ership and over all team talent at ev- ery level and position. 1.

If you happen to be staying after school and boys keep running by the room, don ' t be alarmed. It is not a flood, tornado, or fire, it is the Cross Country boys practicing hard for their meets. One doesn ' t just get up and run five miles, it takes a lot of conditioning. The Cross Country in- dividuals run throughout the sum- mer to get in shape.

The wrestling team, consisting of 41 members, compiled a 10 and 2 dual meet record, won the Northfield In- vitational and claimed the Three River ' s Conference title. Other ac- complishments of this team are nu- merous. The Norse placed 3rd in the sectional, highest in the school ' s his- tory, and sent five wrestlers to the Regional. O ne wrestler, Steve Nor- man, represented the school in the Fort Wayne Semi-State and placed third. Highlights of this years season were many, some are: the Norse won 10 straight dual meets, they defeated 4 teams never defeated before by NHS wrestlers and were undefeated in conference dual meet competition. 1.

The early season losses proved too much for the Northfield squad to over- come. A late season surge saw the Big Blue play some fine basketball with some excellent individual ef- forts. Ron Metz earned All-County and All Conference honors, dis- playing a competitive and spirited at- titude. Ron broke the school ' s record for assists by handing out 17 against Eastern. Surprise find of the year, Dan Eads, came on strong as the sea- son progressed. Dan scored 31 points against Eastern and had great games against Wabash, Triton, and South- wood. Post season awards went to Ron Metz as MVP, Dan Dawes and Jeff Hammel as Best Defensive play- ers, Dan Eads as Most Improved player, Jeff Loehnis for the Best Mental Attitude. While the year was frustrating for the fans, those who know what hard work and dedica- tion are can appreciate the efforts of the players who gave a 100% effort. 1.

' s season The Junior Varsity basketball team for 1975-76 started the season playing fine basketball rushing to a 6-5 record. Then hit by a rash of in- juries, the team finished slowly and ended the season with a respectable 7-11 season record. The highlight of the season was the challenging game against Maconaquah. Though the Northfield players were outsized by 6 inches per man, they were victo- rious with the score 55-51. Many ef- forts were displayed throughout the year and the guys never quit trying. There is quite a bit of promising ma- terial for next year ' s Varsity squad. The players were: left to right, Steve Rogers, Dan Carr, Todd Schnepp, Perry VanMeter, Mark Lutz, Lindy Unger. This was Coach Desper ' s first year at N.H.S. and he did a very good job. Though it looks like tic tac toe, the basketball players know Coach Desper is drawing a play. 62 Basketball Young teams are successful The 1975-76 N.H.S. freshman bas- ketball squads saw the A team finish with a record of 6-8; while the B team ended 11-1. The A team was led by Nathan Vrooman, leading scorer; Duane Wilcox, leading re- bounder; and Chris Denari, best shooting percentage. The B team ' s excellent season was led by Brent Haupert, leading scorer and rebounder; Ed Fitch s high shooting percentage; and Lalon Al- len, leading in assists. All of the other boys on both teams turned in fine performances. Row 1: Coach Smith, T. Dawes, C. Denari, J. Biehl, L. Allen. Row 2: E. Fitch, B. Reed, N. Vrooman, B. Helvey, S. Shafer. Row 3: R. Grey, J. Draper, D. Wilcox, J. Warnock, B. Haupert. Five games won and eight lost was the season ' s record for the eighth grade basketball team. The team steadily improved and was playing excellent ball at the end of the sea- son. The season ' s highlight was a vic- tory over Southwood in the tourney after previously losing in a double- overtime. The leading scorer was Greg Chittick and highest rebounder was Ken Lindzy. The eighth grade does a great job when they apply themselves. Row I: M. DeVore, J. Mowery, J. Williams, S. Richardson, R. Kline. Row 2; T. Hoppes, M. Schuler, D. Warford, K. Harrell, G.

With the A team win- ning 8 and losing 3; the B team won 4 and lost 1. The success of these boys was based on their strong defen- sive play along with their disciplined and opportunistic offense. The bovs were eager to learn and did an ex- cellent job participating. Row 1: Coach Groover, T. Denari, S. Harris, S. Kaufman, T. Kline, S. Hipshire, T. Shafer. Row 2: B. Houlihan, B. Allman, K.

The 1976 Norse Track Team com- pleted another very successful sea- son. Lead by a group of outstanding seniors, the Norsemen won a total of 68 first place blue ribbons. Fifty-two of those first place finishes will be back for next years squad. Steve Nor- man was the MVP. He led the team in scoring with 118 % and won 12 M first place ribbons. Steve ran the high and low hurdles and ran a leg on the 880 relay team. He was also named first team all-conference in track. Cary Hammel was the most im- proved runner and led the team in the 2-mile event. Steve Gill broke the school record in 220 with a time of 23.2. Freshmen records were bro- ken by Lalon Allen— mile, and Bob Kochenour— long jump. The track team will have a great deal of talent coming back for next years season. Experience and quality will add quality to the upcoming year. 1. Chris Krom huffs and puffs and blows the other team down. 2. Ready, set, throw! Chris Sampson makes the discus look like frisbee. 3.

The 1976 Norse Golf team fin- ished second in the Three Rivers Conference, losing to first place champion Culver by one stroke 347 to 348. The Norse showed fantastic team and individual improvement this season as they won ten matches. Ron Metz earned medalist honors for the second straight year, Mike Dee- ter received the " Most Improved " award, and Chris Denari received the " Rookie of the Year " honors. Fourteen golfers made up the squad.

Golf team is in the swing of things N.H.S. slides into a Super Season! Seven lettermen returned to the diamond this year. They had all experienced success in their respective positions and should prove to be a powerful nucleus around which to build the 76 program. The baseball team has always been noted for their spirited attitudes and drive. This game is one of individual and group effort. Swinging those bats, driving the balls, catching and throwing; tremendous ef- fort is exerted and rewarded. Before going into the sectional the 1976 team had a record of 104-1. With that record behind them and the goal of being conference champs ahead of them the Norsemen will have a great show- ing. The 1975 NHS baseball team completed it ' s most successful season in July 1975. They had a record of 19-7-1 and earned the Three Rivers Conference Championship. The guys showed team work and were a great represen- tation of NHS. 1. Greg Pownell releases the pitch; it looks like a curve ball. 2. Jeff Hammel winds up for the pitch. . .Watch Out!! 3.

Girls sports 71 72 Organization No matter how confused kids may become over whether the classes are 1,2,3,-2,3,1,-3,2,1, or anything else, they wouldn ' t give up their activity periods. There are many types of clubs from which one can choose. These organizations combine fun, learning, and experience. Field trips, cake raffles, dances, pie-throwing contests, and dinners, all result from the organizations. There is always a challenge to think up ways to earn money, decide trips the club can take, and think up ways to entertain. Students with similar interests can meet through clubs, and new friend- ships form. These organizations help break the monotony of a school day and add a little variety to ones life. They can aid one in ' Stepping to a different drummer " and becoming a unique person. Organization 73 Foreign Fun! If one is walking through the school one evening and smells a vari- ety of foreign dishes, you haven ' t walked into a pizzeria by mistake. It is just the foreign language club hav- ing an international party.

Bicentennial murals and imagina- tive pictures on bulletin boards were painted by the Art club this year. A field trip was taken to Salamonie in the spring and was very enjoyable. This creative club worked very hard and have in many ways made the school more interesting. Experiment: raising money for Math and Science club by hitting a teacher in the face with a pie; test reactions. Need: one good humored teacher, one pie with whipped cream, one thrower. The- ory: students will pay money to see their favorite teacher get hit in the face with a pie. Results: students chose Miss Durnbaugh, Iris Tackett was drawn to throw the pie (odds 1:224), good pep session attraction. After-affects: Math and Science club raised enough money to take a field trip to Chicago in the spring. Visited; Sears Tower, Museums of Science and Industry, Natural History, Plan- etarium, Aquarium, and shopping center. Conclusion: very successful venture enjoyed by all. 3.

Math Science club I ■ I i Fellowship in FCA, Tri-Hi-Y The Golden Rule may be a basis for two Christian organizations at NHS. Tri-Hi-Y was involved in many activities. They co-sponsored the Christmas dance and had secret sis- ters. If one should hear a squeal of delight from a girl ' s locker it could be the discovery of a gift from a se- cret sister. Though some didn ' t " do unto others " it was very successful. Future Christian Athletes (FCA) also encouraged doing unto others in ath- letics. Sportsmanship was empha- sized and certain codes were kept. Each of these organizations help to boost morale and fellowship at NHS. 1. Tri-Hi-Y members left to right; Row 1-h Yocum, E. McKinley, J.

Though they work behind the scenes, student council is responsible for many things we enjoy. They spon- sored Homecoming and co-sponsored the Sweetheart dance. There are monthly meetings with the adminis- tration to represent the students. They had an ex- change day with Wabash High School and supervised 6th grade orientation.

The school library provides books for students of ev- ery kind and reference materials. Ten students served . student li- brarians during the 1975-76 school year. The library club is re- sponsible for innumerable tasks and handles them well. The li- brary could not function without them. For the first time, our club has members in the Indiana Stu- dent Media Association. The members work hard and have fun at the same time. With the coming of the nation ' s bicentennial celebration the Nu Chi Sigma, (or Northfield Histori- cal Club), was founded. The fol- lowing officers were elected for the 1976 term. President, Dan Dawes; Vice-Pres. Mike Kasamis; Sec. Kavena Anderson; Treas. Mike Deeter; corresponding Sec. Laura Smalley and Karla Steele.

Many people have that impression and it is wrong. The Northfield cheerleaders are more than just the girls one sees cheering in front of the crowd at the games. Each of the squads practice quite a bit after school inventing and perfecting the cheers one sees. Much work is put into organizing the pep sessions. Candy on the lockers, locker room decorations, cheerblock, and slots are just a few of the extras done by the squads. These girls kept smiling; while cheering in all kinds of weather, goofing up a cheer, riding a fan bus 3 l A in a seat, riding the players bus, cheering for five people at an away game, and even when the team was behind and everyone else had given up hope. A tremendous amount of spirit was shown this year and these girls are a great representation. Cheerleaders 85 Clap Cheer Hope i? Fear The stomping, screaming, veiling, clapping, and even singing that one hears at basketball games is in- variably coming from the cheer- block. A home game would not be the same without these girls ' enthusi- asm and spirit encouraging the play- ers. Time and energy are contributed to the cause of school spirit by the cheerblock members. Anxiety, antici- pation, pride, elation, woe and jubi- lation are just some of the emotions felt by these girls. They practice, dress alike, attend the home games, and work like a team almost as much as the guys on the floor. PU 1 S I £«• I " Sv, i , ?„ t«i ' „ I «j t«_ jlm H SB h- 1.

Norsettes provide variety and entertainment With flashes of red, white, blue, and silver the three Norsette squads added color and variety to the marching band during the summer and half-time shows. The Pom Pom squad contained 12 girls, these girls performed quite a bit during the football and basketball seasons. Bob- bysocks, pigtails, hats and canes were some of the gimmicks used to add flavor to the routines. The Flags consisted of five girls, flags, and precision and skill. The bright blue and white flags contributed to the marching band and were easy to see on the football field. Nine girls with sparkling silver cos- tumes, swords and shields made up the new group this year, the Shields. The Norseman theme was carried out well by these girls and the new group proved to be a successful endeavor. Batons whirling through the air were caught and twirled by two girls who helped to make the band a complete unit. The Norseman theme was also car- ried out by the majorette who did a food job of directing and keeping the and together. 1. Pom pom: clockwise, D. Patton, V. Lyons, D. Winters, P. Plant, K.

The Drama Club put a lot of work into it. Members were also involved in the spring musical, " Once Upon a Mattress. " The club ventured on a field trip this year to East Noble High School ' s production of " George M. " Members plunged into crew work such as lighting, cos- tumes, make-up, publicity and even acting and singing. Talents were dis- covered backstage as well as on the stage. Much effort and hard work is contributed by the members and their reward is a job well done. 5. Row J: L to R, R. Weaver, D. Niccum, B. Yocum, K. Dyson, R. Elrod, J. King, K. An- derson, D. Swart, B.

North Star is imaginative The people who are seen monthly roaming around the cafe- teria with glass in hand asking for money are not beggars, they are selling the North Star.

Some special features were Senior polls, Senior wills, the sectio- nal and Homecoming writeups.

Just like snowf- akes, there are no two people alike. Everyone has their flaws, assets and quirks. It is necessary for each person to develop their character and aim toward their goals. The easiest way to be special is to be " yourself. ' There are many things in life that oc- cupy our time and energy such as friends, family, work, and recreation. Pleasing others and doing what is necessary is a big job. People need some time to themselves to develop their characters and do what they want. Give yourself a treat; occasion- ally be crazy, indulge your cravings with culture, a root beer or whatever else. On the next few pages there are a lot of people. It is not the easiest thing in the world to be individ- ualistic but take the plunge; don ' t get lost in the crowd. 102 Individuals The dawn has brought us thus far; Joy, relief, accomplishment, and sentiment are just a few of the feel- ings a senior experiences during his last year of high school. Aside from the fact 1976 is distinguished by the Bicentennial, many other things made it special: Pat Meston and Randy Good as Homecoming Queen and King, football, basketball, Senior Cords, fifties day, dances, pep ses- sions, parties, field trips, lunch, Gov. Econ. and more than just the three R ' s. Friends, faculty and fun times will remain in each individuals memory for a long time. zger— treas., Shelly Renbarger— V.

Moments captured and feel- ings once again stirred. We all need each other but search for your " dif- ferent drummer " and strive to achieve your goal. . From our statement above one may get the impression we did not enjoy doing the yearbook. They are only partly right, we enjoyed it but like everything it had it ' s ups and downs. Some " up " times were: at I.U. yearbook camp with cookie dough, parties, card games, mass crowds in the Shield room; Mrs. Kitt ' s heart attack over the smashed mouse; wills letters (Bertha); and spilled pop over everything. Down times were: the rush to meet dead- lines because creative juices wouldn ' t flow ' till the last minute; Mr. Glaze ' s conventionalism; people crabbing about their pictures. Thanks to Mr. Werkingfor the com- plementary pictures, Debbie B., Beth O., JeffL., Dave K., Jim B., Kent S., Randy L., and Mrs. Kitt for a help- ing hand now and then. And to Cindy, Cindy, and Debbie— don ' t say we didn ' t warn you! Love, Caro- line ir Shelly ”
