It began with the Student Council officers promise to " take away the power from an elite few and give it to you! " Not only did the Student Council have this idea, but so did academics, band, fine arts, publi- cations and athletics. The opportunity was presented and the student body took the ball and ran with it. Joe Jordan scrambles for the ball dur- ing the reserve versus Wayne game. Senior Cindy Keener untangles lights for the Student Council Christmas tree. The huge complex that began the year as Northrop and a stranger grew to be Northrop and a friend. There was a niche for everyone. That is the real advantage of a large school. It gives everyone a chance to succeed. Scholars had the classroom, musicians had the band and orchestra, athletes had the sports, and there were just hundreds of special interest activities. There was photo- graphy, shop, literature, science, gym, history, an d dozens of other slots to find. We had roles for the leaders and for the followers, we had jobs for the bold and the bashful, we had chances for the quick and the slow. For those who wanted, there were even places for the apathetic and the complainers. It was a year that we were proud of... cross country, football, marching band, speech, choirs, hockey, drama, and dozens of other activities brough back trophies and honor to the school. And hundreds of others who did not get the gilt of trophies brought back honor with the way they had represented the school. There were thousands of students who showed that they were ladies and gentle- men and that their conduct and attitudes should reflect well on the school that helped teach them.. Nothrop is proud to share the pride of the parents in our people. Ilic viirsily loolball tt ' ;ini s;oos oiii against Snider ' s Panthers in tlie big SAC game of the season.

Living the daily routine gave us our perspective Nothing could be farther from the truth than to say that the year at Northrop was without difficulty. In the weather alone, the year was trouble. Snows and cold hit so hard that almost three total weeks of classes were lost. Then the energy scare disrupted the late winter and early spring. And people being people, there were contentions as to the best way to get things done. But it was in the solutions of these difficulties that a true successful year came out. The year can only be just a little measured in the problems that tried to disrupt the educational processes. It can be more fully measured in the opportunities for growth that overcoming these road blocks that the high water mark of the time is set. Things were posponed and delayed... extra work to get the schedule moving... this was the benefit. We were able to see that we could do what was necessary and that we were capable and strong. Obstacles were hurdles that were to be jumped, not barriers to hinder our climb. Now that these lessons have been driven home to us we know that we are better and stronger. We know that there can be no limits to our plans and ambitions but those we set for ourselves. Each of our plans is a part of what makes us unique and what makes us masters of our fate. Waiting to return lo llie cily champ- ionship game versus Snider. Toni Sal- keld lakes an an i(Uis glance at llic Carolyn Cahill tensely watches tlie arid action as Northrop digs in. Northrop whatever we made it whatever we decided In the beginnings, we were afraid of Northrop. It seemed as if it would engulf us with its hugeness and it would make us something besides ourself. Before too long we found out the truth. Northrop was just us. It was no artificial monster, but just the sum of all the individual parts. And we were the individual parts. Changing was there, but it was the changing that we do. It was the changing that was another word for growing. New chances to do and learn things made us different but different in a way we choose. And in the totality there was room for. everyone. The more varied the parts, the more flexible and more useful Northrop was. We became the thousand rocks that make up the mountain, we bacame the thousand streams that make up the river, we became the thousand cells that make up the body. And like in a body, or perhaps a family, we found that each of us contributed strengths that helped to be self sustaining. And we also found that our weaknesses were covered by other strengths in the body. Each of us had a role to play and a addition that would make the future more optimistic for everyone.

In spite the complexity, we could still be ourselves It was in the individualness that we found friends. Others who had similar interests to ours found us and we found them and by holding together, we were so much stronger. We could realize that through friends and the recognition of their individuallation that both were confirmed. We had found in Northrop that we could be ourselves and now we found that we could join with others and be more than ourselves. Skills and talents that were our pride when we had stood alone were worth more when we stood together. In all areas, it was like a band where the sound of each instrument is sweet, but the blending of many can be more rich and expressive. Our skills and talents not only in music but in sports, in academics, and in all of the areas we excelled profited from teamwork. Friends were the addition that did not double but multiplied all of our superlatives. As we go through this yearbook, let ' s think of all the ways we were stronger though the friends who were able to show us so many new things.

Tennis Second in sectionals caps netters up strokes season. Shappell, Voght end 11-3 The 1977-78 boys tennis team opened the season early in the summer with the difficult task of filling all but one of the varsity positions. The inexperience showed early as the netters lost their first 3 matches. A few changes in positioning and the tennis team was on a winning track. The Bruin netters finnished with a 7-9 record overall, and 3-6 in the SAC for a 7th place finish. During the sectionals the Bruins came alive ripping New Haven 3-2 in the morning contest and returning in the afternoon to handle Dwenger 4-1. In the sectional championship match eventual semi-state champions Snider defeated Northrop 5-0. Playing the number one smgles position on this years team was senior Paul Smith. The top doubles team consisted of seniors Jeff Shappell, the only returning letterman, and Tom Voght. Shappell and Voght finished with an excellent 11-3 record. Graduating from this years team along with Smith, Shappell, and Voght are Drew Hoffman and Darin Little.

Student Council led our winning Penny Pitch drive Meetings for the Student Council didn ' t start until September 23, but the work was already moving. Before the first day of the new classes, the SC had sponsored an all city dance after the football jamboree and had a new fixture for distributing things in the Commons in a orange and brown booth that was constructed by President Jeff Lindville and his father. Major new business for the year included the approval of two new organizations for a more involved student body. Key club and Rifle club were the fledgling groups. It was also with SC backing that Northrop won the WOWO Penny Pitch campaign with both the highest total for a large school and with the greatest contribution per student, Jackie Puterbaugli and Chariotte Motz were tiie driving forces in the Penny Pitch drive as the total involvement of the students did what was necessary to make us number one. The Heart Fund also benefited from SC attention as over 51,000.00 was raised for the charity ' s researcii fund. Danny KL ' nip soils Studenl Council spirit items to Deiinna BiUcs.

Creating beauty or learning to see beauty around us was the teaching directive of the art department. Proffessional quahty was the goal Art is the study of the beauty in life and the practice of making some of that beauty yourself. Art at Northrop is thriving. Classes in art do everything from drawing and painting to sculpture and jevk-elry. From a good basic art program, students go into a chance to specialize and work with the media the interest them. One of the newest of the specialty classes is the photography classes. It is so popular that the number of students has doubled in the last year and have doubled again for the next year. Mr. Gene Porter is the photo teacher and is also offering a new class in a field class of commercial art. Department head Bob Johnson teaches a number of classes in his specialty of paint- ing and large sculpture while Miss Peg Whon- setler directs classes in jewelry and textiles. One of the big events for the art depart- ment is the National Scholastic Art contest. This year was no exception as Northrop ' s crop of artists won a lion ' s share of the top prizes. Several of the works were send on to New York for judging on a national level with several being hung. One of the purpose of art is to help see beauty in one ' s environment and another is to create beauty. In both of these, the Northrop art department is helping students to live up to the expectations around them. liob .liilinson explains some of llu- tin poinis (irskotcliini: toChaun Marlin.

Homecoming celebrated during day with spirit boostei School began a month ago and the grind is just getting to be a habit. The go to class and study and do homework is normal and everything is status quo... but wait. Now is the time to break the status quo and to see if the regular routine can stand a little bit of variety. It ' s Homecoming Week. It ' s not that the regular classes are dropped but that a new schedule is added. It is time to get out of study halls and help decorate the halls. And maybe get out of class a few min- utes if the teacher is done with the lesson for the day. And then there is a different activity for each day. Bruin day is fun when the girls get little paper bears at the beginning of the day and then keep them as long as they are not going to talk to some guy. Most of the little paper bears had a life span of about the end of first period. And by the end of the day the guy with the most bears got an award for his diligent efforts. But then there was hat day. The teachers couldn ' t yell at you for wearing hats in the building, and the weirder and stranger your hat is, the more your chance of winning so as the day went by, the hats got stranger and stranger and stranger. And then Lick ' em Day. That was ever ' bodies favorite except the dentists. All of the Cheerleaders were hustling lollipops and it was sort of an unwritten rule that you could eat them in classes. It was a new way to get that mid morning energy snack without the trouble that was so easy to get. And the final big during the day Home- coming activity had to be the pep session. Playing Snider that night added fuel to the fire that didn ' t really need help, but with a chance to play Snider and a chance for the Northrop North SAC championship, well, it was all over for the roof we veiled off rti If 1 1 f ' il II h ij-i: .-.

And Friday was the day. Everything that had been promised came today and it was a huge party getting ready for the game Satur- day. The powder puff football game got things off to a huge start with an upset win for the juniors over a two year undefeated senior squad. Coach Eric Bee be took the loss well but vowed that this would be his last year at the powderpuff helm. And then the tricycle race proved to be no contest as the sophomores represented by the sporty Todd John,son sprinted to a decisieve victory. Then to ward off a chill October night, it was time to light the Bon Fire. This was the cap to an evening sponsored by the Student Council and it was appropriate that faculty representatives to the Student Council Mr " Mell Zehner and Mr. Bill Brown set off the huge pile of wood to warm the night and to kindle the spark that on Saturday would burn the Snider Panthere to a crisp. Tlie happy winner ot the Trike Race was sophomore Todd Thompson. Complete with protective headgear, the junior entry waits the Trike Race start.

" Tlie rain and cool temixrature didn ' t dampen any spirits, becatise within two minutes after the opening kick-off Spullcr Stadium w-as filled to capacity, then started to overtlowonto tlie track Both teams were ranked in the top ten. and tliis promised to be a thriller.

Amid the rain and cold of an early October drenching, Carolyn was a vision of sunshine as she was named to be the seventh Homecoming Queen in the his- ton, ' of Northrop. And she got to reign over the most ex- citing game in the history of Northrop as a highly t outed Snider came to spoil all of the Bruin hopes for a north division crown and were washed out themselves. Asked after the halftime crowning what she thought about the weather, the Queen claimed that she didn ' t notice anything af- ter the announcement. Carolyn ' s escort Dale Ramsey commented that he had, but his smile was as broad as Carolyn.s. Homecomins: queen Carolyn Ferraro is all smiles with her well wishers. Queen Carolyn lerraro and her esco Dale Ramsey wait to be introduced. Football Gridders launch season and bound for glory Tlie Bruins started thier bid for the SAC by blitzing a hopeless Elm- hurst team. Next they soiled, a fi- red up N.S. squad on the schools 50th homecoming. The finall sco- re was 14-13. A break from SAC action took Northrop to Hunting- ton in relitively easy match-up, as Northro p score their second shut out in the last three outings. The most important game of the year so far came during homecom- ing agaist unliked. but a very good snider. To get down to the basics the game was for the Nortlv.divis- ron and a sell out crowd was e.xpec- ted at Spullner Stadium. The two teams were similar in many ways it seemed to have to be a close contest. However noone told Mitch Horn that he pulled his way for a new school record of 269 yards. While the defense came to piay and held the Panthers to a minimum, the offense backed them up with 28 points on the scoreboard. Northrop clinches the North division in a hard fought game ag- ainst Dwenger. Then Concordia surprised the Bruins with a last sec- ond feild goal beating us 9-7, One player said, " they just plain out pl- ayed us, all we were looking at was the SAC championship game.

Football Coach Buzz Doerffler had taken teams to the City Championship ga- me before, but had came up empty each time. Talent wise this years is not as good as prioryears, although they made up for this with great leadership and enthusiasm by the senior led team. Once again the Bruin defense was fired up. led by seniors Dan Ivy, Ru- sty Crumback, and Tim Twitchell. Only six points were scored against defense men. And as a few key ga- me before, the win came off kicker Jeff Linvilles toe as he booted an- other of his almost automatic extra points, after Mitch Horn scored the only touchdown. Final score North- rop 7-Bishop Luers 6. The City Championship finally belonged to Northrop after a long hard wait. Along with the naming of SAC champs the team went to several banquets and lunches given to them by different organizations. This just put a little extra icing on the cake after a great season. These players gained special re- conition at the end of the season. On the all city team was FB Mitch Horn, ab Do Kim, off t Larry Mya- tt. off c Terry Lynch, def. b Rusty Crumback, and def e Dan Ivy. Th- ose who recived AU State honors were Dan Ivy, ap and vpi.

He may be Byron Doerffler to tlie whole world, but to the grid fans at Northrop he ' s Buzz. Northrop has never known another hand at the controls for varsity football and Northrop has never known a minute of let up or time off from Buzz ' total devotion. From other people the idea of 110% effort can be sliglitly amusing, but not from Buzz and not to Buzz ' men. He doesn ' t start or stop by any time clock and it can be before sun up when he gets to the stadium and it is often after sun set when he leaves. Winning is important to all coaches, but here we have a pleasant situation. Winning to Doerffler and be seeing a young man come througli the process of playing football and have him mature into a good person. It can put an important new slant on why we put so much effort into interscholastic sports. In the tlanl tally, it isn ' t Buzz Doerffler and his won and loss record that is important to Northrop but the emphasis that Coach Doerffler puts on the individuals that are a part of the varsity football program that is our high measure of the man Buzz ' is our man. WeVe proud!!! Marching Bruin band are Summit ' s halftime highlight.,. It ' s a good thing for Coach Buzz Doerff- ler that his grid teams are so good or the old joke from Funlcy Winkerbean in the comics could well be true at Northrop about having a Marching Band Festival on Friday nights. Instead it ' s a toss up wheather the crowd comes to see the superb gridders or Barry Ashton ' s fantastic Mighty Marching Bruin Band. What else could you expect from the unit that ranked fourth in State competition and walked away with the lion ' s share of the trophies in the Daytona National Band Show When the band took the field for a pre- game or half time show this year, it was one that many colleges would have been proud to claim as their own. The playing band was complete with a Pom-pon Corp, a Flag Corp, a rifle and sabre drill squad, and everything else but a marching kitchen sink. And the word is out that director Barry Ashton and his assistants Bob Rice and Mike Whetstone are looking for one of those preferablly in tones of orange and brown. With the active Music Parents ' Club to boost the group, the sky is the limit for the Mighty Marching Bruin Band as they look like a sure bet to march and strut across the state of Indiana in search of new honors. The rille corp and sabers prepare to do their winning field show. Gail Jurcz ' -wsky, Leslie Clark, and ,li LaBorde pick up some mud with tin Russian drag. Flag and Pom-pon corps are the spice that ' s just right As a colorful and quite lovely addition to the Marching Bruin Band, the Pom-pon Corp and the Flag Corp set off the band shows in real style. From the stands at a football game or one of the basketball games, it isn ' t obvious how- much work goes inot one of the performances but the hours are endless. The percision and the unity of motion come only after hundreds and hundreds of repetitions. Each practice is under the careful scrutiny of the senior lead- ers of each corp. Gentle reminders become sharp reprimands as the same mistakes are repeated, but that keeps the mistakes from showing up in the shows. And the performances are something else! The flurry of flags and the flutter of pompon make a swirl of color and activity that gives a perfect counter point to the beat and blear of the band. Guiding spirit of the Pom-pons and almost ' foster mother ' was Mrs. Nancy Schmiemann who was school treasurer. Her attention to the details and the help she recieved from a number of the parents insured success.

Purkhiser retires from drama, English classroom This year ' s English Department proce- eded in a relaxed and familiar routine. The sweeping changes and multitude of innova- tions have given way to a more polished and finished learning environment. In the many English classes, a great op- portunity exists to review basis skills, such as reading and writing improvements. There also exists a program of academic English, and an Honors Program. The Honors Program is geared towards the college bound student, and gives the student the opportunity to further his com- prehension, reading and writing skills. At a Ball State sponsored English con- test, we had two Northrop winners. Kim Schawb, a junior this year, won an award for an Essay of Liturature Critisism and Phoebe Nault, a junior, won an award in the Original Short Story catergory. The head of the English Department this year was Mrs. Madeleine Thompson. Mrs. Thompson also served the previous two years. Northrop has a special person in their midst whom will be retiring at the end of the 1977-1978 school year.

Cross Country Runners take City for sixth lime in seven year span The Northrop Corss Country team once again had a good season, as is Northrop tra- dition. They won the SAC title for the 6th straight year, lost only two meets and fin- ished second in the sectionals. Team cocapt were Jeff Wood and Scott DeFord. Scott proved to be the MVP for the team with consistancy, dedication, and hard work in practices. DeFord and Wood tied for outstanding senior honors. Although it was a good season, it did have many ups and downs. The winning streak of 000 consecutive dual meets was snapped by a tough Bishop Dwenger team, the Bruins only lost by one point. But as Coach Peterson said, " I wasn ' t dis- appointed, everyone put out, we lost to a good team. " The other loss was in the last meet of the season to Wabash. Coach Peterson stated, " This year we had as much potential as any other Northrop team. " It seems the only time the Bruins capitalized on that potential was in the SAC meet which they won. When you reflect on the extraordinary season, it seems a shame to think of the season ending on any down note. SAC champions and runnersup in the sectional are goals that other schools only dream of attaining. With the personal and individual successes of the season, this was certainly another banner year for the Harriers. As Eric Qemmer takes the last few steps to the finish line, the fans look for the rest of the pack. At the beginning of a 2V: mile run, Eric Oemmer jumps to an early lead.

Volleyball Spikers carry lots of youth in rebuilding season This year ' s volleyball team finished their season with a 10-14 record. The team ' s MVP was junior Marilyn Stewart and senior Carolyn Cahill took honors for the best serving percentage. Senior Tammy Martinjacko won the mental attitude award. Although they didn ' t set any records the team did place two of its members on the all SAC team. Pam Byer was tapped for the first squad while Mari- lyn Stewart was picked for the second unit of the honors team.

Can you imagine what it would be like living with a blind and deaf child? If you have no idea what it would be like, think back to November 18th and 19th. The days in which Northrop ' s Drama Department brought the 1880 ' s back to life with the play " The Miracle Worker " Under the direction of Mr. Proctor, a cast of twenty Northrop students helped the audience realize what life with a handicap is really like. For two hours the audiences sat spell- bound, watching as Helen Keller (Protrayed by Nancy Hill) stumbled her way around the Keller ' s homestead. Then Annie Sullivan (JeMae Gulliksen) came to the house hold to try and teach Helen manners, cleanliness, and more impor- tantly words. Temper-tanturm after temper-tanturm, Annie tried to reach Helen through the Deaf Language, as Mr. and Mrs. Keller (Kevin Rose and Lonnie Kibiger) go through one of the most dramatic times of Helen ' s life. After the play was over and the audience filed out the door, everyone felt that they had witnessed one of the greatest events of our time. As Helen Keller grew up and became the author of many books. " The Miracle Worker has always been a special play for me, " commented Mr. Proctor, " The stage crew, the interesting and creative costumes and Ughting all contribed in making the miracle Worker the successful production it was. " The fall play this year touched everyone ' s heart. Here in the School for the Blind, Annie says good-bye to her students, Annie (center), Jemae Gulliksen, Mr. Aragnos(right)„aiet Oiambers.

Building strong bodies more than twelve ways concern Physical Education. Sis ' Arnold to retire Activity for everyone could be the guide for the Physi cal Education department. It is important to the department that classes both teach life long skills and life long habits that will give the students a better quality of life. Emphasis is on those sports and games that will allow people to particiapte after the graduation from school. It is also a factor that health habits can be learned that will enable the person in later life to live a longer and a more full life. This can be seen in the frequent tests in which the students tries to improve on his or her own best record. Not just physical development but also proper nutrition and physical habits that will be important in later life. Finally, the scope of gym classes is able to cover emotional growth. Winning and losing are not as important as winning and losing in a proper frame of mind and the involvement of participation is more important than eit- her. The values t hat physical education tries to teach now go far beyond the realm that the old time gym class ever considered. A class from PE readies for their very first cross country ski run thanks to equipment lent by Jack Root of the local Root ' s Ski Center. Basketball was part of the year in PE. A lot of strains and moans were heard in the weight room. In a co-ed gym class, some of the par- ticipants waited for llieir turn on the floor. The girls played some toiigli basketball in the gym classes. Media Center became the place for learning for both visitors workers. Use of material reached all time high The often unappreciated students are depednded upon by the Hbrar- ians, Dorothy Lombard, and Ken Crague, for their help, even though the volunteers might suffer verble abuse from other students. Some of the jobs the workers do are shelving, carding, filing magazines, and reading shelves. Those who have special talents are also welcome in the library, and they do such things as putting up bulletin boards and typing. During Christmas Vacation this year, Mr. Don Weaver gave North- rop a special treat. In the Audio Visual room stands a sound proof director ' s booth, which is used for video stage production. The booth was built by Mr. Weaver. Tom Vought is head of produc- tion. His assistant is Ted Kepler.

Custodians did a big job with Northrop and grounds The two thousand people around here can be terribly busy and at times can create a terrible mess. Just ask any custodian. It is up to a crew of about ten men and ladies to be sure that all the litter and rubbish we leave gets put in its place and they are also supposed to see to it that the building stays in good repair and that the things that need to be fixed get fixed. Sounds like quite a big job, but that is not all. There is also the task of keeping all the grounds kept up, grass cut, leaves raked and landscaping in trim. And if there is any time left, the furnace and air conditioning have to be adjusted and kept at just the right setting so that everyone is comfortable. This job is getting bigger and bigger and it doesn ' t look like it will get easier. As the school budget gets tighter and tighter one of the first areas to get reduced in custodial. All these head aches now fall on Bob Lahrman who succeeded retiring boss Verl Mowan.

Retailing skills and knowledge fundamental goal Distributive Education was one of tlie big attractions for the business department. All the skills taught in the marketing classes and in the first year DE class were put into play in on the job training for the seniors in DE ' s on the job work stations. It was a classic and profitable case of earn and learn. The junior students got experience running the Bear Necessities, an in school store that caterred to the Northrop needs. School sup- lies and other snack and gift items made up the bulk of the stores inventories. Trips to state and national DECA con- ventions and the contest that are held at the conventions make up a lot of the preparation time for the groups. Tim Matthias, DE coordinator was busy with his one the job check and with getting the employers lined up to take students for the program. If you have ever tried to get a job for yourself, you can appreciate what it is like for Mr. Matthias to set up situations for the over twenty students who are a part of the senior DE program. Distributive Education is a lot of work, but there is time for fun and high jinks, with a group of energetic students like the DE is prone to come up with, that ' s a part of life. When you hear someone is tied up in his DE work, they may be very serious. Joan May uses I ho adillii!; nuchim- I. Ikt Disirilnitivc l-,d (.lass.

There were more than three weeks of school off when whole days and several days of the schedule beginning an hour late are counted. All that time away from Northrop was difficult on studies and classes, but most of the students looked on it as a nice break. It was mostly during the huge snow where FWCS was closed for more than a week that staying at home cooped up with parents and little brothers and sisters made Bruins begin to wish for the friendly hall and the busy classes of Northrop. Of course, not all the time at home was spent watching the tube and napping. All die snow created difficulties that students lent a hand with in the clearing of streets. the transportation of emergency supplies by four wheel drive and snowmobiles, and the mercy runs to the grocery store for family and neighbors. One of the real highlights of the big snow was the Saturday trip to South Bend by the members of the Northrop Hockey club to take part in a double header against squads from La Porte and South Bend Adams. The one day two way trip by parent convoy was quite an experience on snow packed and drifting roads. Snow was the real show stopper for the Northrop program and ju?t when it seemed that the snow traumas were over in March came the next big scare with the famous Energy Chrunch of the winter of 1978.

Tlie L ' ustodiiil crews were kepi bus ' with snow up to their necks as the ' tried to clear sidewalks I ' or tralTic. That walk to the car was cold! Then energy crunch cuts lights, heat, and programs sh And then the snows were gone... but so was the coal. By the end of February, the national coal miner str- ike had put a scare into public offi- cials as the stockpiles of coal to run the electric generators began to dwindle. Fort Wayne Community Schools ordered a fifty per cent cut back in all schools in line with ruling from the Indiana Public Service commission. Heat was turned back at Northrop to conserve electricity and the lights be- gan to dim. Hall lights were turned off except at passing periods and the outside rooms began to try to make due with window light as much as possible. It was a long struggle and we had trouble seeing the light at the end of the Journey. We more of- ten began seeing the dark at the end of the hall. There was a lot of talk of closing schools and giving students time off. However, the answer was found in conservation. The custodial staff went through the building and dis- conected over half of the lighting fixtures. Areas like the Indust- rial arts began to stop using equ- ipement that drew large amounts of juice, the audio-visual material were use d sparingly, and sports and extra-cirricular events had to be wrapped by five in the afternoons and never scheduled for weekends. And the dark either began to get lighter or maybe we got used to it. Tlie rumors about closing school quieted down much to the chagrin of students and much to the relief of school officials. The last big energy crunch came with the postponement of the state basketball tourney, a move more emotinal to many Hoosiers than the closing of the school. Finally, by the middle of Marcii, the lights began to burn brighter again. There was a settlement re- ached in the coal strike and stock- piles began to grow and at north- rop life began to pick up its norm- al rythym and pace. Teachers such ;is Mr. liarric Peterson moved in closer to the class. After school the halls were iimisuciUy quiet because of cancellations of extra-curricular activities. The everyda - routine was changed as the halls sol dark, it took two people to open lockers- one to flick a Bic and the other to work the combi- nation. The commons was used as a look-out for rides when the temperatures dropped below zero, and the snow- covered the walks. The blizzard in addition to the coal strike forced school officials to call off school creating scenes like the one one to the left. Wrestling Gaines led contender grapplers almost to the top Losing weight, running steps, getting hol- lered at by Coach Danley, and working out very intensely is what a wrestler goes through before he ever wrestles in a match at North- rop. These are the reasons for the great success the Bruin wretling team has had over the years and for this year ' s fine season. The team had some excellent individuals along with a good team effort posting a 9-3 record overall. Both the varsity and the reserve squads were in two tourneys during the season. They fared well in each. And a few of the grapplers did outstanding jobs. Those who had tourney successes were Larry Myatt, Mitch Horn, pat Karbas, and Darrel Gaines. The season as a whole went very good up until the last two matches. The Bruins were in the thick of things in the SAC with a 5-1 record before they faced Snider and Dwen- ger in the same week and lost both import- ant matches. Junior Darrel Gaines was the top Perfor- mer on the squad, going all the way to the Semi-State. Another outstanding wrestler was Larry Myatt who was named wrestler of the week by the Journal Gazette for his show as a heavyweight. Darryl Gaines concentrates intently on his next move in a key match against Snider. Qiarlie Kensil looks for advice in the sectional match at North Side.

Cheerleaders Style and grace, plus hard work mark cheerleaders Cheerleading looks easy, but don ' t let yelling at ball games fool you. It also gets you into planning pep sessions, getting ail the spirit item ready like signs for lockers and the cakes to be presented at pep ses- sions, and hundreds of other details. If you are still interested, then get ready to spend part of your summer at a Cheer leader camp learning the latest in new and different cheers and practicing gyrmastics and even how to breath properly. For those of you who are still interested be ready to give up a few days every week after school to practice the things that just aren ' t going right and a few evening every week for games and matches of all sorts. Then there is the travel, since you are expect ed to be everywhere the team is and they do travel quite a lot. If this schedule appeals to you, you are the kind of person who will make a good cheerleader. And that is the kind that we at Northrop are used to having. We are used to having the kind of person who works hard at boosting Bruin spirit, the kind of person who is willing to sacrifice all the time needed, We are used to winners.

Bechtelheimer leaves team br stage area Tonsils ready, get set, GO. At least that is the general idea for the Northrop Speech team and department. Under the direction of Mr. Denny Bechtelheimer, the Mighty Mouthy Bruin Speech team were involved in numberous forensic contests on many Saturdays during the year. There were all levels of activity from the just beginner in Speech class to the various sections eligible for competition during the contests. Most of the members of the team, were from the advanced speech class, but some of the talkers were walk ons. If any one had the interest, he or she was most welcome to take part in the program. This was an unusually hard season for the speakers as the weather played a large part in the schedule. The extra snow and cold temperatures we enjoyed this year did their best to put a crimp in the plans of the people who had to be up and moving around so that they could be at school often before sun rise to be off to the meet. This season also saw the change where debate coach Walt Cook will take over the sponsorship of the whole speech team next year with Denny Bechtelheimer moving to the drama area to replace Mr. Jim Purkhiser.

Learning to speak to others and understanding ways of life objectives of foreign language department For those who feel that there is only one way to say something, there is the Northrop foreign language department. With the new emphasis on the rapidly shrinking world, the ability to speak in more than one language is becoming more and more necessary. Northrop offers classes in Latin, Spanish, German, and French. With this selection in the traditional languages, students are able to converse with people from most of the western nations. And with the stress that non west nations put on basic languages, these options often can give a common language to people who are bilingual in their own right. Use of the language lab lets the student so a greater amount of speaking than would be possible in a traditional classroom and it also lets the student hear the language being used as it would be in the country of its base. But learning to speak a new tounge is only part of the foreign language program as there is also great emphasis on the learning of the local custom and the life style of the country that is being studied. Field trips at the local level include going to various Mexican and French resturants and even travel abroad.

This was a rebuilding year for the girls ' basketball as a squad laced with seniors but liberally sprinkled with juniors and a soph or two went out to do battle. And do battle they did for good reason... this was the last year for Coach Sis Arnold at Northrop. It was almost a team motto that they wanted to do well for Sis, but wins were not in the cards as often as they would have liked them to be. But there was a scrapping spirit and the hustle to stay in almost every game that was surely a tribute to Coach Arnold as well as it was a tribute to the girls on the team itself. One of the watchwords for the squad was the scrappy guard play on both offense and on defense. It was the role of the guards to keep up the tempo and to harrass the other team to the point to making mistakes. It proved an exciting game to watch and one of the high points of the team had to be the iinproving attendence at home. The first few games were attended by only a hundred fans or so, but by the time the end of the season rolled around, there were almost double and sometimes triple that many Bruin fans in the gym. And the fans were rewarded by the type of game that they saw. Stamina seemed to be a problem as the last half often proved to be the doom of the Bruins. This was true in the sectionals as the hoine Bruins clawed and fought to stay within a single bucket of Dwenger onl to see the visitors pull away in the second stanza. Weather was no help this year as a long lay off during blizzard conditions upset the projected practice schedule and the energy crisis crippled the last part of the season.

That was before last year. Then she became the girls ' basketball coach. In the last two years she has endeared herself to a whole new group. From teaching PE there are thousands of young and not so young ladies in Fort Wayne who love " Sis " and now there are more. Sis is one of the most respected and most loved teachers in the state. Her retirement is a just reward and we can only hope that summers at her lake cottage and winters skiing won ' t let her forget those people here at Northrop who still remember and love her for being our " Sis " . 3 w % 4 jfi % Afro club mourns Mrs. Bernice Irby ' s death in August Afro Club began the year on the saddest possible note with the death of Mrs. Bernice Irby, who had been the club sponsor since the beginning of Northrop. Her death was extremely sudden and occurred in August just before the beginning of school. Her many hours of effort on the behalf of the club and the members helped to make her loved and respected by students, by the faculty, and by the community. New leadership came in the form of Mrs. Louise Isom. who returned to Northrop after an absense working with the ' Title Pro- gram ' downtown in the Learning Center. Chief among the new programs from the Afro Club this year was sponsoring the Sa- vannah College Choir for an all school pro- gram. The choir was on a tour from their home base in Georgia. The outstanding member of the Afro Club was Kevin " Speedy " Allen. There was an official presentation at the Senior Honor Recognition night.

SWAS Learning Center gives opportunity for problems to be worked out with growth as the goal and results the measure Learning Center is now grown and is a big part of the School Within A School idea here at Northrop. Inside the SWAS and Learning Center are the specialty areas of education for those with learning difficulties and there is room for those who have classroom situa- tions that their is mutual agreement that it would profit them to be removed from and students who need a class on an arranged ba- sis. Learning Center faculty are Mrs. Kay Green, Mrs. Nancy Passwater, Mr. John Weicher, and Mr. Eric Beebe. One of the big advantages of the learning center is the willingness of the staff to work together and to help with other classes and students and to lend material such as books and films to each other. With their location in the up stairs section of E wing, the SWAS department and the Learning Center are doing their best to keep up the effort to help the students learn. Not every moment in SWAS is work, there is always time to share a joke. Group work has to be a big advantage for Learning Center Students. A quiet time helps concentration. COE helps clerical students land jobs, gain experience. Group also had extensive social schedule The best place to polish office skills has to be in an actual working office. That was the operating theory behind the Cooperative Office Education program. Advisor Rick Housel was responsible for selecting the best students in the commercial program and to then get them jobs to mat ch their interests. He was also responsible for the club that the COE students belong to, the Office Ed- ucation Association. The OEA was a busy with major activites of selling giant coloring books for a fund raising project, organizing and publishing the Bruin Buzz book, a phone book of students in Northrop, and having a banquet at the end of the year for the stu- dents and their employers. The success of the year can be judged by the fact that the banquet at the end of the year was held at McTavish ' s. Mr. Rick Housel addresses the COE Employers breakfast.

This group of dauntless and daring slope masters sponsored two trips this year and took a bus load of Bruins up to the prime skiing country in Michigan each time. Sponsorship of the club was in the hand of Mr. John Weicher and he served as the moving force for the trips, additional chaperonship from other members of the faculty and from a number of students ' parents helped make the trips possible. There was no necessary level of ability to go on the trips and everyone from the new- est snow bunny to the advanced hot dogger were more than welcome. Equipment was availiable at the slopes and a special plan to give basic instructions to those who needed them was included. Both of the trips were one day soirees and the bus left earlier than some would have liked and many returned later and much more sore than they thought, but everyone was in fine shape with a day of sleeping in the next day and vnth a little more limping and favoring of hurting backsides. Overall success had to be judged on the fact that the most popular question when the group returned was, " Say, Mr. Weicker, when are we going again? " The skiers take off from the summit. Jan Heimlich and Sue Falk demon- strate the perfect kind of form. Karen Reed, Cindy Sowell, Colleen McClurg, and Lori Prince prepared for that ne. t rip down the hill.

The second was to be a member of the new Varsity Club. The club was reorganized with the advent of lady letter winners and its name was changed from Lettermen ' s club. The Varsity club is largely a service club with its prime motives being to help the athletic department and do aid any of the schools sections that need support, but there is also a side of the club that is social. There were various open gym nights during the year in which the members were free to enjoy the facilities and then there were organized parties and picnics at the mem- ber ' s homes. The big moment of the year for the guys and gals in the varsity club came when the Athletic department sponsored the annual Athletic Banquet to honor all the winners of sports letters during the year and the attainments of the teams.

Hockey Hockey grows to two teams, tie for City Northrop Hockey has come of age ! ! Northrop sponsered two teams in this years High School League. The varsity won state runner-up, with a 17-2 record, and took a share of the city championship for the fourth straight year. The reserves compiled a 2-8-1 season against other schools varsity teams. The varsity had two early wins over North and Wawasee. Snider then marred thier record in a 6-0 game. But it was early in ihe year, some players were injured, and football was stUl in season. After that the team jeUed and set about to win the next 15 games. Included in the wins was a 6-5 score over Snider in the city champ- ionship game. Meanwhile the reserves, lacking experence, lost their first six games. The team got progressivly better and broke into the win column at Wawasee ' s expense, finishing off the last five games with two wins, a tie, and two losses. The varsity was led in scoring by Tom Salkeld, who with Mike Rogers and Scott Runge composed the ' Senior Line ' . The top defensemen were Dan Lobacz and team captain Dan Smith. Promise was shown by the ' Sophmore Line " of Dan Runge, Brian Thomson, and Dave Wallenstien. Two juniors Jim Elizondo and Matt Merriman along with sophmore Jim HUl made the ' Hot Line ' . Sometimes they were hot sometimes they were not. Defensemen Brett Branstetter and Jeff Whetstone along with goalies Drew Armstrong and John Blacketor completed the team. Junior Pat Yurkovic was the reserves high scorer, other goal getters were Ron Stewart and Tim Timbrook. The reserves playmakers were Mark Jones, Steve Wiegman, and Curt Mirwaldt.

The big scorer in the Washington game was Dan Lobacz, who had three goals. Nine men scored in a great team effort. John Blacketor had the shut- out. Next in line was Clay, who the bruins blitzed 1 1-2. Sophmore Dave Wallenstien got the hat-trick that game to lead all scorers. Brian Thomson and Tom Salkeld both had a pair of goals. South Bend Adams, a team Northrop vanquished earlier in the year, was next to fall in a 9-4 game. Brian Thomson came through with a hat-trick and Tom Salkeld got two more. Columbus an undefeated Indy team was the bruins came away winners in a 5-4 game. Salkeld and Thom son tied for honors with two goals each. Jeff Whetstone got the winner. The contest saw 57 minutes of penalties served to the bruins in what coach Jim Sweeney called ' a questionably officiated game ' The fmal game turned out to be a grudge match: Northrop vs Snider. Both teams had one loss at each others hands, and were looking to prove who was number one. Northrop took an early lead as Salkeld got two quick goals. Snider came back with the next two to tie it up. Whetstone put Northrop back in front and Thomson padded the lead to make it 4-2 before Snider woke up. The panthers got the next three goals. The last, and longest remembered, coming with 1 :07 left in the game. After the second place silver medals were passed out to a somber Northrop team. Sophmore Brian Thomson was awarded the South Bend Tribune ' s tournament MVP award. Brian had 10 goals and 21 assists for ' a total of 31 points in the five game tourney.

Music Jazzbands a favorite among students and community Expression is one of the prime functions of the instrumental music section. Here is a chance to blow your horn or beat your drum and enjoy the music you make. It is also the chance to join with others and have their per- sonal talent and ability join with yours to do a better job, to make a richer sound. Prime among the groups are the orchestra and the stage band directed by Mr. Robert Rice. Often these groups are not given the same public notice accorded to the marching band, but their performances are profession- al in quality. It was the backing of the stage band, reconstituted as the pit orchestra that helped make the Musical " Once Upon A Mattress " the huge success that it was. In this age of public popularization, it takes a devoted musican to do the type of thing that doesn ' t get the acclaim. It is this type of student who concentrates on those aspects of instrumental music. Steve Billings, Phill Biancardi, Jeff Blackburn.

Science keeps pace with rapidly expanding fields and tries to keep np with inflation on a fixed budget The variety of classes offered in science is getting more complex each year. Northrop is trying to keep up with the advances in the field to prepare students for the future in a college course or training for a technical job. There are still the basic classes in biology physics and chemistry, but now there are new chances in air science, and advanced classes to work on projects of the students own choosing as independent projects. One of the major problems is the ever present shortage of funds, but with all of the skill at their call, the staff tries to stretch the money as far as possible by making their own equipment whenever posible and even having their own facility to make distilled water. With the ambition and resourcefulness of the Northrop science faculty, even if the fu- ture isn ' t flush, it will be keeping pace.

' 78 seemed doubtful. But with the resour- cefulness of the cast and the determination of director Del Proctor, the show hit the new stage of being a during school assembly. Instead of being presented on two even- ings, the show was presented in the morn- ing and students contributed for the great privilege of seeing the show instead of giving their attention to class. Some of the acts fell victim to the delay and the show was pared to less than an hour with several of the skits shortened and some totally dropped. But the enthusiam was still infectuous. With the shortening, the performance moved quicker and seemed to be more entertaining. One of the major drawbacks to the neccessary rescheduling was the absence of an adult aud- ience. Many of the parents who would have enjoyed the show were unable to attend as were many graduates who enjoy getting back to Northrop to see old friends.

Basketball Cage fortunes mixed for Dillie ' s last year After the Ednonds injury, North- rop rebounded for a quick win at the Elmhurst Tro}ans ' gym in a close, cru- cial S.A.C. game ' . This set the cagers ' hopes high going into the Holiday Toutnament as Northrop drew Elm- hurst for their first round game. But, due to minor injuries for forwards Bruce Rogan and Mark Siemer and gaurd Scott Riley, and the sidelining og center Craig McKinney with a ma- jor injury, the Bruins were defeated by the Trojans in a well played game on both sides. Then the Bruins hibernated for the remainder of the holidays. But they didn ' t sleep too long as they won two of their next three conference games and dropped a non-conference match. This set the stage for the confront- ation against arch-rival S.A.C. oppon- ent, the Snider Panthers. But the Pan- thers were on a winning streak and just couldn ' t be overpowered anywh- ere on the Coliseum floor as they rou- ted the Bruins 70-60. As the basketball season wound down, the Bruins just wouldn ' t slow up. They finished strong by winning four of their last six games. This got their hopes up high going into the Sectional. The Bruins totally emba- rassed New Haven by almost 40 po- ints with execellent teamwork very rarely shown during regualr season play. In the semi-final game of the Sec- tional Toutnament, everybody in Bruin country had caog tif ' Hoos- ier Hysteria!! Keith Edmonds flashed an orange towel with the words " Th- e Believers " printed on it in prismic letters. The game started with Northrop han ng on close to South Side by the billiant outside shooting of guard Art Jordan. It ended as the most nail- biting game ever witnessed as Northrop lost, 65-58. But the game wasn ' t a loss at all as it showed the rest of Fort Wayne that the Bruins could have accomplished what everybody had expected of them is given more time. Overall, it was an up and down season as the team played exellently at times anly to falter at others. Al= though their record was a disappoin- ting nine nine wins, 11 losses and 7th place in the S.A.C. , the Bruins went out with a bang. Art Jordan, picked the teams mvp, was named to the All S.A.C. first team. Heading the Bruins next year will be A.C. Eldrdge who has to start almost from scratch with only two players returning. The remainder of the team should be made up of the fine talent coming up from this year ' s fine reserve team. Senior Scott Scheele drives around a Dwenger opponent on liis way to the bucket.

They had virtually the wh- ole team back, including three memb- ers of the starting lineup from last ye- ar. The media also thought highly of Northrop, ranking the Bruins 13th in the pre-season poll. The season started off well enough with Northrop avenging the previous season ' s loss to Dekalb by destroying the Barons by a sizeable margin. The Bruins opened thier home season ag- ainst highly rated North Side (which ended the regular season ranked nu- mber one) in a heartbreaking four point loss, 70-66, in which Northrop was awarded only four free throws, making two. Then started a sown hill accelar- ation, losing to highly ranked South Bend Adams and S.A.C. to Harding. The bottom of the hill came when Northrop hosted Warsaw at its home court. In this contest the Bruins dart- ed out to a fast lead and held it all through the first half. Then came the crucial third quart- er. Keith Edmondsa, second year starting forward who eventually made All-State, hustled after a loose ball and seemingly stepped out too far thus injuring his knee. However, the injury healed prematurely and North- rops ' s fans ' heads were raised again but only for a brief time. Edmonds re-injured his knee in pr- actice, only this time for good. A dark shadow fell over the Bruins ' cage future as Edmonds watched the remaining games from the sidelines. Coach Bob DiUe studies the play in his final game as the Bruin mentor. Bob DiUe and former Northrop Prin- cipal Paul SpuUer share the thrill of victory after Dille ' s State Oiampion- ship victory. Basketba Much experience was gained on the reserve and soplimore basketball team this year. With almost all sophmores on both teams it was mostly basic fundamentals. Teamwork and defense was stressed by coaches Chris Stavreti and Jim Kiem. As the season progressed it paid off highly. The reserve team ended up with an impressive 14-5 record over-all and an 8-1 record in the SAC. The sophmore team compiled a 00-0 record. Many of the sophmore players concentrated more on reserve. With 12 seniors on the varsity this season all the positions will be open next year. Tall junior Jeff Holt, who went up to Varsity in the last part of the season, dominated in reserve games. He is 6-5 and surprised every- one in the Wayne game with a slam-dunk. Junior Tim Jackson goes high for the tip against Northside ' s Stan Powell.

" I have something on my mind... " nquiry Center grows as place for seeking ds to dig as deep and throughly as needed. Popularity reflected its success The concept of inquiry center is to take a number of gifted students and let them have a hand in exploring their own courses. There is a greater emphasis on projects and helping yourself to find the needed information and then having the group evaluate and discuss a number of explainations for what was seen. Social science, Math, Science, and English are all covered in the Inquiry Center and it is almost a self sufficent community. Working with the same group of people, both faculty and students, lets more rapport and trust be established and also eliminates the need for a lot of preliminaries. The students can get down to work. This year saw the slight modification of some students taking most of the Inquiry Center classes, but going out to the regular classes when it would work out best. Flexi- bility was one of the strongest parts of the program and will help the students when it is time to leave school for social roles. Aide Betty Loper was the central point for Inquiry Center traffic. Mr. Nat Wittenberg leads a heavy discussion in the Social Studies section. mm - ' As Inquiry Center English teacher. Eric Beebe does his O.J. Simpson imitation; it reflects on his busy schedule. Music Orchestra one of top groups in instramental music If Little Boy Blue were a student at North- rop he would be in the instramental music foi the chance to blow his horn. And he would have a lot of company. The success of the music program can be seen in the fact that the music department has some of the largest classes per teacher in the whole building. There is an opportunity for everyone to do their thing. If actual playing isn ' t what your want, their are all the areas that go with the groups. Flags, Pom-pon, drum majors, and a flock more. But it is in the playing that the real job of the personnel in the department comes in. Learning to play an instrament is something that will stay with a person and that will be a valuable form of recrefition in the future. It is also a point that the students who have been in the program are better listeners of music. They found that their interests an( even their appreciations have broadened. Don ' t let anybody tell you that music ' s a fringe area at Northrop. It ' s here to stay.

Steiner named new department head Saws buzz, drills whine, and sanders roar as the Industrial Arts classes learn by doing and develope the skills that will stay with these people all their lives. The days of the lA being a second class program are gone in this era of skilled needs for the various industries. College has now become a new field to train in for a job and the role of the vocational classes and college prep are beginning to draw closer together. Northrop offered classes in drafting, metal metal working, wood working, and samll engine and electrical work. For the student who wanted a more depth approach, there was the option of going down town to the Regional Vocational School. Leadership in the department was in the hands of Steve Steiner. Steve handled the department head job and taught classes in drafting. One of the big weeks of the year came in May for the students as their works were put on display in the commons for the big Fine Arts Festival. Examples of all classes from Electricity to Drafting to Woods was out for the admiring and exclaiming of the large crowd who attended the Pops Con- cert. Many students also made a point of browsing through the Commons before catching the bus on Friday afternoon. Precise measurement is a must according to Junior Randy Prott.

The FCA is associated with the national group headed by such sports luminaries as Bruce Jenner and Bub Wilkinson. Its purpose is to promote the awareness of the part that the Christian faith plays in the sports world and the similarity of ideals since good sportsman- ship is based on Christianity. Northrop ' s chapter was sponsored by Mr. Art Schwab. Meetings were often held at Mr. Schwab ' s home and combined a study discussion and more social refreshments and some just plain enjoying. The FCA chose as a fund raising event the strange sport of Donkey Basketball. This is a regular game of basketball, but the teams have only four per side and play astride the donkeys that give the game its name. Th ' e night was set up with a senior team playing teachers and letterwinners playing a coaches team. The seniors and coaches won their preliminaries and then the seniors downed the coaches in the title game. George Samaan has an unusual way lo make a ' dunky ' shot.

Ample opportunities exist in the vocal music section Variety was one of the watchwords in the choir section. From the up beat sounds that the Swing Choir to the more traditional idea of the Madrigals, the tempo and the pace are always changing. And this variety in the number of offer- ings means that there was a place for all of the Northrop students who wanted to be a part of the vocal music program. From the beginning choirs to the top levels, it was possible to find what you were good at and to do it. And there was a full range of programs to give each of the groups a proper forum for the showcasing of its abilities. From Concert Choir ' s big and successful show at Christmas to the special dance numbers for Advanced Girls ' group, there was a spot for everj ' one. Mr. Bill Heins has been so successful in the vocal music choirs that this year a new face or should we say voice was added to do what was needed.

During a Swing choir performance, Holly DeCamp solos a lyric from " Hd like to be in America " . Plumanns retires, but her seven years of y leadership as department head create strong situation for math to prosper. There may be a move to retum schools to the old days of reading, writting, and ' rithmatic, but the math department is a bit too far gone to go back. The columns of figures to cipher have been replaced by minicalculators and a series of computer terminals hooked up to Purdue University. But in the background, and often with a push to the very front, is a hard line on the fundamentals that must be understood as a second language is the answers are to be correct. General math, algebra, geometry, and the more advanced sciences are open to the students at Northrop. And for those who want to learn to speak the language with a more modern accent, there is the computer math class. All math classes have access to the ter- minals, but this special class gets down to the advanced study of making the marvels of wire and tubes and transistors work. Stability has been the key word in the department with only one new teacher to be added. That was Mrs. Elaine Stuckey who taught three classes a day this year. Next year, however, will be the first to see Bruinland open without the math de- partment head. Miss Leona Plumanns is going to retire. She is the only person to have served as department head for the ma til since Northrop opened..

Gymnastics Hey guides gymnasts to another banner year Hey, there... or more likely Hey here as Northrop welcomed its main man in Gym- nastics in the form or new girls ' coach Dave Hey. Coach Hey inheritated a tradition of strong gymnastic teams with the stress put on by previous mentors and the attention of Phys Ed deaprtment head, Mr. Tom Tom. And its tradition kept giving Northrop ' s fans more to cheer about with a close race for the SAC title and an almost dash for a sectional crown. Both the city and the sec- tional crowns eluded the Bruins, but it was a year ofrgood showings as the girls were in every meet as a team and could usually be counted on to pop one or two really fantas- tic performances with each evening. This winter saw the same problems hit the gymnastics team that effected every other Indiana high school winter sport and there was a day to day unsureness as to wheather the weather or the energy situation would permit the regular schedule. But in spite of the adverse conditions, the gym was to be filled better than in the past as the num- ber of fans keeps on growing. With the strength of the beginning and the intermediate programs, the team will be a factor for Hey for the next few seasons.

Guys welcomed into classes Gone are the days when a strict line kept gals in Home Ec and the guys out. There are still more ladies in the program than gentle- men but openings do exist. Men have as much reason to leam how to be handy in the kitchen as women do, maybe more to witness their fondess for eating. And when a seam rips, or a botton pops, knowing how to use a needle and thread can help. And in other ways the programs are now changing. The old sewing class is becoming a class in fashion design for advanced students and more than boiling water is being consid- ered in home management. All of these changes are in keeping classes responsive to the needs of the super mobile student ' s future.

The gals were also able to win a first in sectionals with Gina Brown and her ef- fort for the Bruins, while team mate Anita ifackson copped a second in the 80 yard hurdles. The medley relay team of Gina Brown, Carolyn Cahill, Marilyn Stewart, and Deanna Bates rounded out the higher sectional finishers with another second.. This team was laced with seniors for the stablizing influence, but was largely made up of Sophomores and Juniors which should bode well for the next couple years. One of the high points of the season was the SAC meet where Gina Brown set a new meet record with a long jump of 17 ' 5 " .

' ' What ' s Bruin ' has busy schedule as new sports magazine published on seasonal basis. Total preprinting production handled by students Student involvement in the school news paper at Northrop stopped just short of the press itself. The " Whafs Bruin " staff did all the the type setting, writing, drawing, photo- graphing, and page already for the pressman layout. This do it ourselves attitude gave many of the advanced journalism students a chance to learn about parts of the newspaper process that high school programs often neglect. And in the case of the extra hours of work to set all the copy for the paper on two composers, and to make all the heads on one troublesome headliner, it gave some headaches and ulcers. Senior leadership proved strong as Kelly Thomas, Tom Voght, Tanya Webb, and Deb McBride alternated between pleading and demanding that the work be done. Highlights of the year included Tom Voght and Ruth Overton creating a sports supplement that came out three times during the year and covered the three sports seasons. And then there .was the draft, or at least the time that Kelly Thomas and photographer Rob Thorne were invited to join a tour of student journalist traveling to Fort Knox in Kentucky to view the " new army " . Many of the the traditional pitfalls were waiting for the student journalists. People didn ' t like the opinions expressed in some of the editorials, clubs and groups sometimes felt their activities had been slighted, and it seemed like someone always got missed when the papers were put in the lockers. But as the year went along, things go smoother and by the time we were ready for summer vacation it was almost a shame to break up a group that had learned to work together and get a Job done so well .

Cameras, film, and darkroom mark of publications photographers. Northrop ' s group largest in city Publications ' photography at Nortfirop is coming of age. At the annual BaJl State University Journalism contest, the photogs from Northrop fopped five awards with Rob Thome and Doug Fasick taking firsts. Marc Straub wiiining a second and a third, and Dawn Denuyl scoring an honorable mention. Three press photographers also decided to try a different medium and enter the National Scholastic Art Contest and all the had entries hung. Marc Straub won a Gold Key finalist and an honorable mention, John Ribar took a Gold Key and an honorable mention, and Rob Thorne was awarded three honorable mentions. Tim Eppele had a good year as he picked up a job with a local professional and had a hand in several slide shows presented on the local television. One of the watch words had to be exper- ience as the variety of assignments gave all photographers a chance to cover everything from sports to the theater. Experience in anything can be traumatic as the many rolls of film that were less than right showed. But the many good pictures that were a mirror for the year and that filled the yearbook and the newspaper were more of a barometer for a successful photo year.

Bear Tracks staff produces 232 page edition and deliver it to the printer camera-ready This was truely a rebuilding year for the Bear Tracks staff. Most of last year ' s staff of seniors left and many of the positions were filled with converts from the school newspa- per. They were led by a hard corp of Kathy Overmeyer, Maria Jones, and Barb Berry. Kathy served as editor and did most of the lay outs, while Maria ran the album section. Barb worked with design and copy. Mike Manning joined the group from the newspaper and brought his expertise in copy to help. Also helping with album was Steph Schnellbach and Lori James. Copy help came from Julie Sipes, Matt Merriman, and Rich Johnloz. Main stays in the production area were Mike Parrish and Tim Tassler and chief helper for the album was Carol Knuth. Mike Parrish, Tim Tassler, Barb Berry, Maria Jones, and Rob Thorne led a group of very determined staffers who lived in the journalism room for two weeks after school was out to finish up the yearbook. But it was all worth it as the final deadlines were met and the printer ' s representative was able to promise delivery of the books by the end of August. v lT front, Steph Schnellbach, Barb Berry, Lori James, Kathy Overmeyer, back, Mike Manning.

Track Track strives for wins, team and personal According to the ancient Greeks, track is one of the purest orders of athletic activity. There is the personal level that track gets up to where each man competes not against the person in the next lane, but against his own best effort. With the success of the Northrop track team, the ancient Greeks would have been very proud. Northrop combines the feeling of a team effort with the purity of personal striving. And the results are excellent. Northrop was able to finish as the runner up in sectionals while beating SAC champ Snider by four points. Totally up 79 points with 39 from the field events, Paul Hyndman took two firsts in the shot put and the discus while Larry Myatt won a fourth in the shot. Junior Chip Chevillet did an outstanding job, copping a first in the pole vault. Chip ' s team mate Stu Fuller soared up for a sixth place. Junior John Ribar took a sixth in the high jump, but injured an ankle to keep him from completing his attempts and probable stoppinj him from taking a higher placing. The only Bruin to win a championship in the running portion of the sectionals was a senior stalwart in Jim Ehle. Ehle captured his specialty, the 880 yard dash. Charles Trigg was clipped by a tenth of a second in the hurdles and had to settle for a seoond while fellow Bruin Wendell Wilder captured the sixth place.. Distance also had its Northrop contingent as Jeff Wood took third in the mile run. Sophomore Glen Moore was fourth in the grueling two mile run while Senior Scott De Ford came in sixth. The sectionals was a good show for the Northrop squad, with several outstanding teams in the city giving great competition. Wendell Wilder receives the baton from Ken Jones.

Track Special thanks are in order to Coacli Bar- rie Peterson for the job that he has done with the Northrop track program in the seven year history of the school. A lost has been said of the fantastic winning records and the greatness of the performers, but the real strength in the having of Barrie Peterson as a coach is in what he tries to do with the young men who come out and run for the team. Barrie is interested in seeing each do his best so that he will know how to push when it is necessary. There are times when life is a lot like running a race and at those times it is valuable to be able to go all out. And Barrie is interested in seeing young men develope in the internal ways. His plans for next year include helping iwth the Fel- lowship of Christina It ' s amazing the way long races don ' t tire the coaches out!

Golf Coach Oliver ' s first year sees Riley sectional medalist Golf saw a new coach this year as Bruce Oliver toolc over the reins of a new and very unexperienced squad. But that squad was laced with underclassmen to build for next year and lead by seniors Scott Riley and by exchange student Hans Lantz to make a bid this year. The won loss record was up and down as the varsity edned up 9-21-1 overall and with a 7-10-1 tally in the SAC. But the record did not show the brightest point as Scott Riley took medalist honors for the sectional with a sudden death shoot out. The sectional team was composed of D J Wagner, Scott Riley, Hans Lantz, Rich Beck- man, and Kevin Donnelly Bill Deakin, Dan Robinson, and Rich Koldewey also played on the varsity during the regular season. lioiu, Ld Giuevora, UoUi iiiowii, Payne Brown, Richard Koldeway, Rich Beck man, DJ Wagner, back.

Social studies tries to give student preparation for living in modern society. Helping to live in today ' s society is the big job of the Northrop Social Studies department and they take their job seriously. It may have been in the study of history to see how we fit into the pattern of civilization, timely, it may be in sociology to see the possible modes of life today, or even phychology to learn of the workings of our own mind, and the minds of those around us. This year saw the expansion of new ways of teaching using simulation where students are able to approximate actual experiences in politics or finance or international relations. This year also so the introduction of many guest speakers as everyone from ordinary but opinionated citizens to politicians, to law en- forcement officers visited the classrooms. It even saw the visiting of US representative Dan Quale by a phone hook up where he could be addressing the questions of students from a number area high schools. Like every year, this year was a year for a number of new approaches, and for leamrng. Mr. Don Weaver and Mr. Lloyd Weber review a slide show for use in history classes.

Baseball Baseball has down year with injuries and weather Spring came late to Northrop, but with it came the promise of a SAC contender for the baseball team, but such ideas were without a thought for the unexpectedness of injury and that nemisis to all sports, the bad breaks. Joe Pea, Troy Moore, Terry Lynch, and Mark Kem were all starters with problems to keep them out of the line up. Starters are not easy to replace in such quantities and it was one of those season when nothing jelled. Mark Seimer and Rex Coak had to try to keep the pitching staff bouyed up, but the strain was awfully hea ' y for just two veterans and with the cut up schedule with rain outs and re scheduled games, there was never the {ime needed to rest the few pitching arms that could be counted on. Sophomores tried to fill the gap and Brian Thomson and Jeff Whetstone both saw a lot of service, but the unsettled net effects of a lot of injuries and much bad weather just was too much for the Bruins to overcome. _ I " TIIFIBMI 9b pipi ' 7» i«S«- I Kf.-, »■ . -,.

Athletic banquet gives chance for awards After a had year of winning their awards on the fields of exertion, in the spring comes a chance to bring family and friends to a very pleasant meal and have them share in the honor that athletic recognition means. It is also a chance to share again in the team and to in turn honor the outstanding team mates who helped make your part more meaning-ful ful. It is all these things. Mrs. Shirley Williams served as the Mistress of Ceremonies for the banquet and introduced all of the coaching staff and the guests. After the meal, the group moved to the auditorium for a more comfortable setting for the award portion of the evening. Each coach called up his or her outstanding athletes for awarding of special trophies.

Search for love and sleep story of ' Mattress ' Every Spring sees the Northrop drama and music departments combine to produce some of the finest stage productions seen in school productions in Indiana. This year was no dif- ferent as the musical comedy " Once Upon A Mattress " brought magic to life. Costumes and settings were worthy of the special performance that it was, for this was the last production for Mr. Jim Purkhiser as a member of the drama faculty. " Purk " has retired as of last June and his expertise and his caustic wit to get things working will be missed around the H wing. A special program was printed with two of the pages devoted to explaining what a job " Purk " has done, but for those in Fort Wayne theater, it was unnecessary. It was through his guidance that the North Side drama area was promoted and it was with his help and effort that Northrop reached the level it has. Mr. Del Proctor, Purk ' s co worker here is right when he summed everything up with a simple, " Purk... We are going to miss you. " Mr. Purkhiser leaves a lot to live up to with this year ' s production. The sets were one of the high points of the year, and the staging was smoothly and professionally done. And the richness of the costumes was beyond all belief. And the singing... great. It was almost unbelieveble that all of the lyrics were plainly heard everywhere in the auditorium. Choral music deserves praise. Prince Dauntless, Mark Sumney, vows undying love for Princess Winnefred, played by Gina Narhwald. As a tired Winnefred, Gina Narhwald, crawls back into bed, Dauntless tucks her in. The total cast of " Once Upon A Mat- tress " sings the finale to the show.

Tred ' wows em at Spring Musical, houses full High light of the show had to be Gina Narhwald as Princess Fred. From minute one to the final scene, she had the audience in the palm or her hand. Or as Fred would probably have put it " in the palm of my very sweaty hand. " All of the performances were played to packed houses. This is one of the Fine Art departments big productions and its suc- cess can be considered a bell weather for most of the rest of the season. Special attention went to the Pit Orche- stra and that was in the form of extra long and extra intense rehearsals. But when the chance came, the music was so well done that it was comparable to a professional company. The spring musical is one of the most colorful production at Northrop and this was one of the most colorful ever. Don Oesch hams it up before a performance. Mi. James Purkhiser receives much deserved praise in this final tribute to his illustrious stage career with high school productions Jemae Gulliksen and Bart Reed spent most of the show at odds with each other. Always and Forever proves to be Prom ' s dream Prnm niffht ' 78 was puprvthind fhaf it: was Prom night ' 78 was everything that it was supposed to be. Gone were the blue jeans , gone were the painters ' pants, and gone were the nikes and the addias and in very much a sort of clothing the halls of Northrop had no idea even existed. It was a night of dreams as the men were decked out in formal wear with all the satin and suade trim. Shoes were of polished and patent leathers and could be mirrors. And the ladies were dressed like dreams from Hans Christian Anderson and like the dreams of Christian Dior. It was fashion and it was Princesses for the evening. Even the site was removed from ordinary every day routine as the Ball Room over at lU-PU hosted the Prom. And the evening did what was to be expected as the reality of who everyone was was shadowed by the sea of " how do you do ' s " and by so very many " my, but you look wonderful ' s " . Renee Trainer and JeffWood make their way to the festivities. Lori Strahm, Joe Pea, Gina Narhwald, Paul Hyndman, Carolyn Ferraro, Russ Crumback. and Carolyn Cahill wait for Steve Crull to announce the name of the new Prom Queen. Jenny Lehman and her escort show the others how the ' hustle ' is done. Newly crowned Prom Queen Carolyn Ferraro reigned over the dance floor with her escort Paul Hyndman. Debbie Hubbard and Kirn Leimer enjoyed the refreshments as our photographer Bob Crosby enjoyed the view. Dimmed Ughts and glittering decor- ations transformed the lU-PU Ball Room into a Prom dreamland. Night like storybook world for gala prom party Like any fairyland, tfie Prom lived up to its theme of Always and Forever, but like a Camelot, its reality was only for a day and the rest was in the mind and memory. Going into the Ball Room transported a person into a sparkling and whirling wonder- land. A prism of light broke over and kept sweeping over ever ' thing and everyone. The band was a group from Muncie and was known as " Deliverence " and their new upbeat tempo did deliver the merry makers from the everyday. The colors were peaches and cream and their softness added to the evening and it helped filter through the night. The colors were carried out everywhere you looked. Perhaps the temperature in the Ball Room was a ' little warm, but that just made it very comfortable to step out for a minute and to enjoy the evening air. And the slight chill in the evening gave ample excuse to walk close and enjoy the together feeling that a Prom night provides. Just as it was fun to explore the lU-PU facility and to find all the nooks and little crannies upstairs that were commonplace to the students during the day, but that night were secluded alcoves meant to use when it was time to sit out a dance or two. And it was even fun to use the copy ma- chine to make a record copy of two hands for an off beat memoribilia. Then eventually vras the moment that a waited for but everyone also dreaded since it meant that the night was ending. It was the crowning of the Prom Queen. And it proved to be Queen Carolyn as an other prom became history and Carolyn had a brief but happy reign in our Camelot. Barb Rademaker and Jim Elizondo show off their new duds. Diane Shaffer and Kellie Heyman chatted while the band took a little break. Doreen Shady, Sandy Ruich. and their escorts glance through on of the evenings niembry books. Music Three slate choir lour caps aclive program This was a year for the Northrop Music department to put their show on the road. And that is just what the Choirs did. There was a three state tour by the concert choir, the Madrigals, and the Swing choir. The group left by bus for two perform- ances at OberUn, Ohio, where they were joined with the Oberlin College Choir. It was then to Chicago where the Bruins were booked into a performance at the museum followed by a stay at the famous Palmer House hotel and a visit to the smash mus- ical hit " A Chorus Line " . This trip gave the Northrop vocalists a chance to have a new experience at putting on a show with the different situation that a group on the road encounters. This can be valuable experience for anyone who would be considering a future in Music. It also had the effect of showing what a Northrop group could do. The contacts in Oberlin Cellege and in Chicago are such as may someday help out program here.

The band took way more than its share of the trophies as the awards session looked like the march in orange and brown. There was also gilt and wood for the concert band, the drum major, the Pom-pon squad, and the Jazz Band to round out the trip.

Going out to where society lives to help and learn is fiinction of Community Base section of SWAS With the urbanization of society, the new schools have tri ed to reach out and give the students the skills they need for today ' s new communities. Northrop has offered a chance for students to go out from this building and to do work for and in the community that is going to help both the community and help the student. Students are able to see up close how jobs they may be considering operate. This year has seen students spending aftemnons at the News-Sentinel, Fox Island , numerous social agencies, and commercial radio stations. While at school in the mornings, these Community Based students take four credits of classes in a concentrated three hour time with Mr. Bob Waleen, Mr. Greg Pressley, and Ms. Marge Slabach doing the instruction and these three teachers also helping set up and work with situations at the community base. With the new schedules made up for next year, there will be some changes in the set up with fewer students being accepted. Scheduling for chsscs was one of the extra jobs Mr. Bob Walleen had in community Bill Deakin got real experience with a local on the air radio station as his assignment. Administration led by Todd marks schools 7th year Principal Sandl Todd began her fourth year in Bruinland with this school year. It has marked a time of change as programs such as SWAS. with the inquiry center, the community base, and the learning center coming to fruition. This period has also marked successful programs in the sports area, the music and dramatic world, and the academics. Now the administration looks on even more and more sweeping challenges as the next few years will see the transition of Northrop to a four year high school. Bill Mitchell as assistant principal with Mel Zehner, Gary Schultz, and Donna Parker are already making plans to have as smooth a change as possible. Athletic Dir- ector Mark Schoeff and the coaches are now thinking about the inclusion of freshmen in the already bulging sports program. Northrop is only as good as its leadership and with the past as a guide, we can see all the new situations in the future being set •with the student ' s best interests. In tlie Inisiness the Mr. Gary Schultz is in, you have one of those days now and tlien. Miss Sandra Todd gives the seniors something to look forward to (gradu- ation) at the last pep session.

Many times throughout the year, you could hear EMSes going by the school. Mr. Gary SchuUz and Mrs. Donna Par- ker investigate the EMS at school and direct the paramedics. Guidance staff made a home in ' ' B " wing hallway This year saw the counselor staff housed in B 101, the guidence suite, for the second year. Students were getting to know the new faciUties and were begining to look for what what was offered. ..good advice. It wasn ' t just the college bound that was able to help himself but it was any student. There was an increasing amount of attention paid to career and vocational planning with Mr. Bill Brown taking over the role of the chief counselor for those students interested in the opportunities at the Regional Vocational School. This left more time for Guidence Coor- dinator Donna Green and counselor Stretch HoUoway to work with college prep and with the normal class selection load. It also helped to have one person more fanihar with the new and expanding programs at the RVS. There was never a dull moment with the fall months devoted to helping get the class schedules straightened around, the winter as a time to polish off the scholarship materials and the college apphcations, and then spring coming with the readying of the setting up of the class schedules for next year. Guidence became a home for those who needed advice and referal point for those who were headed in the many directions the future held for all of us in 1978. Tliis is only one ol ' Mr. Bill Brown ' s many tasks during the day. Even the Guidance Counselors hang out where most students do during the normal day of school. Pictured are Mr. Bill Brown and Mr. Willard HoUoway. Mrs. Lillian Nicoski helps a student in stress whenever there is a problem that arise.s for students.

Mrs. Donna Green and Mr. Cliff O ' Brien pass some time during the day by watching physical education classes. One of the many faces that could be seen in the Guidance Suite during scheduling. Staff keeps daily routine in reasonable bounds It was the secretaries and staff that kept Northrop moving like a smoothly oiled and well adjusted machine. And like the oil in a machine, they did their jobs quietly and with a minimum of visible fuss. " Groupings were made and Mrs. Kay Bo- hlender, Mrs. Helen Herge, and Mrs. Dorothy Lxing formed the nucleas of the staff in the Principal and main administration offices. There service is measured in the words of Mr. Bill Mitchell, assistant principal, who said, " these gals really run the show. " Mick Keuneke was the connection to the computer and data processing. She was up to her chin in computer read outs for class lists and bubble cards for grades. Mrs. Ann Kilgore and Mrs. Jane Stine had control of the student services with ann as the receptionist and secretary for the deans and Jane filling the post in the attendence after Sally Grider left when she moved to Ohio during the winter. Mrs. Lillian Nicoski handled the area around the Guidance suite and fill the big job of working for all three counselors. It was to Mrs. Nancy Schmieman that all of the money fell as she counted in as the official school treasureer. In her few free minutes, Nancy also lent a hand as the Spnsor for the Pom-pon squad. Wrapping up the staff was councelor ' s aid Fred Blanks who was based out of the student services office, but was usually found anywhere in the buildings or on the grounds. Fred had responsibility for lockers, for doing a bit of patrol duty, and being the general assistant for girls ' basketball and track. Dorothy Long ran the paper work for the Athletic Department. Working the front desk kept Helen Herge busy. but always on call to receive visitors. Running the Pom-pon squad supplied treasurer Nancy Schmiemann with service workers. Sally Grider kept the attendance hopping till January when she left for a new home in Ohio. Jane Stine inherited her attendance office. Fred Blank ' s job as councelor aide put him up close to the student. Consumers, as well as proffessional have a reason for taking business courses. Learning to navigate in the sea of com- merce was one of the life saving skills that business students learned. Business -was an unusual subject for high school in that many of the students who took a commercial or clerical course were ready at graduation not for advanced study but for employment at a respectable salary. Skills included typing, book keeping, short hand, business law, and the on job type of experience such as Distributive Ed- ucation and Co-operative Office Education. During the last two weeks of school, the business department was hit by the sudden illness of accounting teacher John Walter. Mr. Walter was hopsitalized, but was sent home by the week summer vacation began and was reported doing well. Everyone is wishing for a speedy recovery for Mr.- John Walter and for seeing him in class next year. Shorthand students practice taking dictation. Mr. John Walter ' s reminded his class that accounting took concentration. ' VW- ' Mr. Don Lieberum had to lecture to his first year accounting kids to keep them all counting the right ways. Typing students not only learn how to type, but how to do it the right way. Calculators became a necessary took in accounting classes. Senior Recognition night brings up new super stars It ' s like a fancy pep session for those who didn ' t play football or basketball. This is a night dedicated to the re£il reason for school, this is the night of the scholars. All of the departments will have honored their best students, whose names aren ' t quite the conversation that quarterbacks and the high scoring forwards are. This is the night of the activities where those who labored a great many hours get a very precious minute of glory and limelight. But it is all worthwhile. All the work was being done not for reward, but because you enjoyed what you were doing. The reward is all the sweeter because you never thought of it before. Senior Recognition night is the time that makes school all the more worth it. Mr. Gary Sdiultz announces the per- fect attendance awards as Mrs. Donna Parker presents them.

Almost 550 more students of Northrop are now becoming alumni. This is the seventh class of graduates and the number of alums is now around 6,000. This number is not as large as the other schools in Indiana, but we would like to think that it is a very special group. A group of nnich talent and promise. The ceremony to join this group is almost too quick. There is a period of organizing the confusion in the basement of the Cbli- seum and then a flurry to get upstairs. At the main floor is a hot, sweaty, expectant, and very parental crowd. And then it ' s all over. Your turn comes and you grab tight to the diploma and strut back to your seat and then it ' s over and you :are an Alumni. The happy graduates exit triumphant- ly.

You walked into the main floor or the Coliseum a hairy high schooler and now it is time for you to be something else. Some one wants to know what you are going to do next year, but you don ' t really know what you are going to try to do tonight. You were wearing that silly gown and that funny liat and all of a sudden, you have turned a comer in your life and it sort of takes your being a while to catch up. There won ' t be any more first period soc and you can ' t depend on hamburgers for lunch on Mondays. They call it commencement. Now you know why. That ' s what it is,,, it is just the beginning you have been waiting for. Northrop graduates look calm as they wait to get their diplomas.

Introducing... the Class of 1978, and that is what it is all about. Northrop is not for a group of teachers, administration, parents, or anyone but the students that it produces. It comes down to Northrop being measured by the graduate who are out in the world, and that has been a pleasant measurement. This year will be the same as this class has shown a promise of the quality that the future will be looking for in them. There have been times this year that the faculty may have looked at seniors and did a little muttering, but there have been times when the seniors cussed over the teachers. All in all, it has been a good year and it was the leadership of the Class of 1978 that was largely responsible. It doesn ' t matter what the seniors do for a living, it doesn ' t matter if they are lawyers or if they decide to dig ditches. What matters is that they find a role in society that they are happy with and a role that they can use to add to society. Congradulations, Seniors... and now we go to the student album and begin with the class with the class, the CLASS OF 1978!!! Class of 78... the Seniors Tlie leminine touch lead the class of ' 78 with officers Carolyn Cahill. Sue Van Gorder, Pam Byer, and Lisa DeVille.

Mary Zuber The most ambitious class project this year was the Junior Class Carnival. They directed a concerted effort of over a dozen clubs and groups from school to run a fun fair night and they attracted almost a thousand people. The proceeds from each of the activities ' booths or whatever go to the activity with a percentage donated to the Junior Class as an ents fee. This year did seem that the most popular of all activities involved throwing wet spon- ges or cream pies at teachers and students. The students enjoyed tossing at ' teach ' and the faculty really enjoyed getting some of the kids... but all in fun, of course.

Al Morin reacts strangely alter realizing he has once again failed to complete his journalism assignment. Mr. Howie Schneider after a riot in the faculty lunchroom... well, maybe at the Junior Class Carnival. The year was a huge symphony of happenings That was the year that was!!! Being a part of all of what made up Northrop was mind boggling. It was like being caught in a whirlpool of activity. Now that it is a part of history, think back... what do you recall? We are sure that the SAC championship for football or the dramatic comedy of the musical " Once Upon A Mattress " or the State Runner Up Hockey team or the Daytona trip for the Marching Band will flood your head but wait a minute. How about remembering people? The school year was more than activites and events, it was the people who made them up. Formulas from math and chemistry and how they decline a Latin verb are things that vidll stick in our minds for a while and then be gone. But how about the people? Classmates and teachers, lockermates and friends, let all these people be that makes this year special to you. As you leaf through this book, try to see faces that mean something to you. Try to make those faces a key for your memory to open to. Try to keep in touch with those guys and gals who meant something to you now. Burn each face into you mind and let it stay there as long as you can. Remember each pleasant incident that helped make the year what it was and that helped to make you who you are. As you move farther and farther from Northrop, take your friends with you. Now we are ready for any situation, it ' s all right And you will move farther from Northrop. That is the was it should be, for Northrop is just a place to begin with. Northrop and everything it does is aimed at moving you away. We are all citizens of the world and we eventually have to go there. Some of us will become doctors, lawyers, merchants, butchers, factory hands, farmers, and everything else. We will be a part of a whole generation that tries to improve condi- tions for everyone else. And when we do that it will be like coming into the Northrop complex all over again. We will be afraid that the hugeness will swallow us up and digest us so that we are no longer us, but part of that complex. Then it will come back to us that North) op was made up of us. So will the whole world be made up of us. Each of us will be an individual. An individual block that helps to form the pattern of the whole. And it will be our personal choices that tells us what spot in the pattern to take. We will still be the masters of our fate. We will become building blocks for society and all of the people we knew at Nortrhop will become other perfectsstone to fit the pattern. All the faces from this book will be there in some way. A rare sight this year, a hall with the lights on!!! " Star light, star bright, " Julie Hamp- shire glances skyward during a half- !F time show. u Here ' s mud in your eye, but it ' s wet sponges in the face at the jimior ' s big Carnival night. r f M The lime has come for us to lake a more positive role We hope that everyone will be blocks that do the job toward building a better society, but perhaps that is not the way that society builds. Some of us will be the round pegs in the square holes. But even the ones who may not seem to fit can be ones we wish well. Not all of our roles in the future are as plain as we may want. Like our Northrop careers. It always seemed like the benchwarmer who we wondered why he stuck on the team got the chance to score in the big moment. It was the kid in the class who never quite got anything right who in the end, understood. Perhaps it will be one of us who pushes society up a step and adds to man ' s growth... or it may be one of us who shows society a new way and opens a brand new field of progress for Homo sapiens. We will all be part of the plan of fate for mankind. Just like every picture in this books occupies a spot for us to understand the whole year. But just like every one of the pictures in this book is a seperate picture, so each of us is a individual, unique in his own right. Brian Thompson is in truth the maslced Spirit Bruins at the Pep Sessions. In the Half-time show, Thea Grizzard really ' gets down ' on the clarinet. Students aren ' t the only ones who need in class time to catch up on the old homework. In the end, ii ' s like the beginning... Now let ' s start.. . So there we come back to it. Like we always must come back to it. We are Individuals, that is basic. Computers have tried to mold us and we have been able to refuse. We mold and shape ourselves. It is our choice to become what we become. The choices that we take are eventually freely made and we have no one except ourselves to look to. When we feel pressure from around us to decide on what we are going to do or become, it is our decision to stand against that pressure or to give in. But even in the giving in to pressure, we are cho ' sing freely. Society in the long run wants us to be quality and society wants us to be unique. There is no place in what is happening today for submissive followers. The direc- tion of the future is for the bold and the thinker who is not afraid of listening to the voice in his own head. Build yourselves toward that goal. Be yourself and give others around you room to be themselves. Don ' try to live in a narrow mold that stifles you and never try to force others to live according to your ideals. Toleration may be the virtue of the future. Try to understand what others are thinking and give them the chance to grow just as you want the chance to grow. If we can hold tight to this ideal of freechoices, there may be a better future ahead for all of us. r SiS?! Mighty Marching Bruin Band into a fine performance. A group of happy juniors enjoy a mid-day Pep Session. The agony of a broken season be- cause of a badly injured knee side- lined senior Keith Edmonds. Battered but far from beaten, line- man Tim Twitchell prepares to take the field. Miss Peg Whonsetler offers lielpful advice to soph Lisa Smith. This year was one that you made, be proud of it it The end of the year, and the end of the yearbook ... there is a finality that hits us. Seniors leave the school never to return as students and underclassmen feel the same kind of growing that marks a change. Grovifth is the measure of success and there has been a lot of growing around Northrop this year. The mere physical sense is the least important. More valuable is the emotional and the intellectual. Winning and losing have now become just two lessons in the same unit. It is the learning that they forced on us that is lasting. Being better people and helping to create a better city, nation, and world is our concern. The school lessons are now part of a larger pattern that we hope will lead to those things that improve the quality of our life and the qualities of the lives of all people around us. Remember, this may be the sunset of the 1977-78 school year for us, but a sunset is just another sunrise for tomorrow. May your tomorrows be happy... 1978 Bear Tracks Staff ..■: ' fiilor ' ;olloc|inle press, inc. .
