Over 100 academic courses
open to orthwest students
Offering more than 100 courses in some
type of academic learning, Northwest
allowed the studerits the opportunity to
choose their own curriculum as it pertain-
ed to their own personal needs, for the
present as well as the future. Each depart-
ment rendered, -courses that were valuable
to the student seeking to strengthen a skill
or learn new information that would be
helpful in deciding upon a career.
Various courses allowed students to pro-
ject their talents in certain fields and gain
recognition, respect and confidence from
their friends and school staff. New equip-
ment was installed in various departments
of the school. Audio-visual equipment
and computers made learning and
teaching fun. The computers aided
teachers with instant grading systems and
provided educational games j for the
students. The facilities in the five-year-old
school added to make' education faster
and easier. '
Academic courses took on new dimen-
sions when speakers and field trips were
added to the curriculum. Students who
participated in production based courses
found field trips to companies, plants and
businesses beneficial to their own course
of study. The benefits of the various field
trips included obtaining new ideas, gain-
ing first-handfexperience about the sub-
ject, and getting a break from the tradi-
tional classroom learning facilities.
Visiting speakers also broke up the routine
of .everyday classes. Guest speakers gave
the students profiles of their own careers
and sometimes enlightened the pupils
about a matter pertaining to their job that
was not clear to them before. .
Different courses and services provided
by the facilities at Northwest were just
another way we stepped out of the crowd.

Different study techniques
present among students
Unique study techniques were present
among Northwest students. Unique
because study was not just confined to
home or to the community library.
Students utilized the facilities available at
Northwest such as the commons, school
library and of course classrooms.
When using the school's facilities,
students were also interested in saving
time. By completing homework at school,
students had time to hold down part-time
jobs and work on other projects outside of
school. Instead of leaving the building
during the lunch hour, many students us-
ed this time to study for tests or do extra
homework. Also, during lunch a large
number of students used the typewriters
in the school library to type essays, reports
and research papers. Using the time allow-
ed at lunch was just one of the study
.techniques utilized by Northwest
A favorite technique used by students
was to study with friends. A group of four
or five students studying together was not
an uncommon sight. But usually students
studied with only one or two friends. The
topics studied were as varied as the
students who studied them. National
Honor Society members studied for up-
coming competitive bowls. juniors
studied for the PSAT while seniors
studied for the ACT and the SAT.
Even though studying seemed to be a
hard task to perform, many students
found it easier if they could study with a

Laughter, wink, grin, gesture
provides carefree moments
Laughter, a lop-sided grin, and a wink
of an eye are all characteristics of lighter
moments produced by Northwest
students. Whether it be in a class, during
passing period, or at lunch, signs of
carefree moments were often expressed
throughout the year.
Students found time to share humorous
thoughts and opinions with friends at any
hour of the day. Some people enjoyed
spending time with a special friend or
listening to last minute jokes before
school began. Many students appreciated
ed lighter moments. Whether it be
building a float for Homecoming or
decorating a hall for class competition,
fellow class members enjoyed the time
spent together competing against other
classes and having a good time. The fine
art of putting up streamers and crepe
paper seemed to conjure up smiles and
good times from all participants.

School provides opportunity
for individualistic expressions
Frowns before school, smiles after
school, anger at basketball games, excite-
ment at swim meets, frustrations at junior
research papers, rewards at report cards,
these are all expressions and emotions that
make the school day bearable. Expressions
provide the vent for frustration and
sometimes show, without speaking, what
a person is feeling. The kind of expression
at Northwest was different from many of
the other Wichita high schools in that
students at Northwest came from many
different backgrounds and interest.
Expression not only included people's
faces but also appeared evidently in the
form of the arts, athletics and language
arts, only to name a few. Music students
had the opportunity to express themselves
through different music of different com-
posers. They studied a wide variety of
styles and could express themselves vocallv
or instrumenrally. Drama students used
the words of playwrights to somehow get
said, what they somehow couldn't. The
Creative Writing students used their own
words to express themselves by describing,
and telling what life is really about. And
atheletes in sports whether it was on the
football field, the basketball court, the
swimming pool, the tennis court or any of
the other excellent facilities included in
our school, had the opportunity to excel
and express themselves while doing it.

School provides atmosphere
for long-standing friendships
Technically, by definition, friendship is
the state of feeling friendly towards
another person. In a year of troubled
times and economic upheaval, friendships
at Northwest meant different things to
Friendships matured through the shar-
ing of rides to schools and by attending
some of the school-sponsored dances
throughout the year. During the school
week new friendships were developed
through the use of advisement time, pass-
ing periods and the lunch hour. Classes
were also places where friendships began.
The process of learning and working
together provided many students with
new friends. Even though some students
did not have class with some of their
friends, extra-curricular activities provided
them with the opportunity to get reac-
quainted with old friends. "

BELOW: Participating in the AFS and the Interculture Student Exchange Tom
Sarlvik, Anja Schutte, Elisabet Henriksson, Maria Victoria Diez and Laila Nielson
came to the United States to attend Northwest.
Arriving in the summer of 1982, six
foreign exchange students from various
countries came to Wichita to spend a year
with American families. During the year-
long stay they made friends, attended
school, stayed with a new family and par-
ticipated in various activities.
Exchange students attending Northwest
were Alberto Peimbert from Mexico,
Elisabet Henriksson from Sweden, Anja
Schutte from Germany, Laila Neilsen from
Denmark, Maria Victoria Diez from Colum-
bia and Tom Sarlvick from Sweden.
They were able to experience and learn
first-hand about American culture. The
learning experience was returned when
Northwest students took the advantage to
get to know the exchange students and
learn about their respective countries and
cultures. Each exchange student was re-
quired to take government, U.S. History
and English to qualify for graduation status.
Although learning was a major aspect of
their stay in Wichita, they also experienced
many new activities and social events.
A few experiences that were different
from the traditional ways of their own coun-
try ranged from dating to eating out. All of
the exchange students attended the junior-
Senior Prom which proved to be an ususual
experience for them. Long dresses and tux-
edos are a symbol for weddings and they
thought that the Prom looked like everyone
was getting married, because of the formal
attire. Dating was also a new experience. It
is more common in other countries for
couples to meet somewhere than the tradi-
tional American way of the male going to
the female's house to meet. Also, school is
taken more seriously in other countries and
therefore extra-curricular activities are not
It was a difficult end to a special year
when the goodbyes of six students probably
meant forever. Each had different per-
sonalities and each one will be remembered
for something that only identifies with that
one individual. Many goodbyes were filled
with tears as the exchange students left in
late june to go back home.
in various ways
Sometimes planning activities for
school vacations and weekends could be a
difficult task. Northwest students
remedied this difficult problem simply by
doing the things on vacation weekends
that they could not do during the regular
school week. Most students liked some of
the same activities so there was always a
friend to share in the leisure time events.
Shopping, playing video games, talking
on the telephone, watching television and
attending community sponsored events
were just some of the activities students
participated in while school was not in ses-
Shopping was a leisure time activity en-
joyed by many students. Wichita had
enough shopping centers so that it was an
event that was both convenient and ex-
citing. Those students who lived on the
northeast side of town discovered that
Towne East had a wide variety of stores
and restaurants housed in its facilities and
those who lived on the west side of town
found Towne West convenient because of
its location. Many students spent hours on
weekends looking for items such as prom
attire, a mother's or father's day gift, a
gold chain or bracelet for that special
someone, or just a new pair of designer
jeans for themselves.
Leisure time was also spent relaxing at
home. Students sometimes found as many
activities to do at home as there was away
from home. The activities done in the
home were found to be far less expensive.
During the warmer months of the year
students enjoyed laying out in the sun
listening to the radio alone or par-
ticipating in a friendly, but competitive,
team sport such as basketball, football or
volleyball. During cooler months students
involved themselves in less strenuous ac-
tivities such as the all-time favorite past-
time of talking on the phone to a friend.
With the new cablevision system, watch-
ing television became a favorite activity
during leisure moments.

Keeping fit and acquiring strong,
healthy bodies was important to
Northwest students. They found several
methods to keep in shape such as jogging,
dancing, roller skating and playing tennis,
racquetball or baseball. No matter what
sport was participated in, students eagerly
accepted the opportunity to build up and
strengthen their bodies through physical
fitness and exercise.
A wide range of students enjoyed the
activities in keeping fit. Athletes who
partcipated in school sports were not the
only students who enjoyed physical
fitness. Students who had interests in
other areas of school, still enjoyed keeping
fit but had to schedule a time and a place
to do so. The equipment at Northwest
allowed students the opportunity to keep
fit during a prescheduled school hour, or
after school. In the gymnasium students
had the chance to lift weights and play
basketball and volleyball. Outside, the
track field near the tennis courts allowed
ample room for jogging. Off campus,
students were allowed a wider variety of
activities in which to participate. Students
took to roller skating rinks, racquetball
courts and dance studios for exercise ac-
tivities which were not avialable on the
An advantage to a regular physical
fitness program was that it provided a
release for pent-up emotions. Regular ex-
erices relieved tensions, relaxed the men-
tal being, and at the same time
strengthened the physical being.
"Whenever I have a problem, I usually
jog two or three miles just to think," said
Senior jim Banks. "It does not usually
solve my problems, but it makes me able
to handle them easier."
Physical fitness was not only popular at
Northwest, it was a favorite past time all
over the country. People from many dif-
ferent walks of life told of the secret plans
they used to keep fit and stay trim. Movie
starts likejane Fonda wrote books on exer-
cise and fitness. Television programs were
aired early in the morning and late at
night to give a wider audience the chance
to exercise at home.

Game rooms such as Video Villa, LaMans
and Shane's Game Room provided an at-
mosphere for excitement and challenge.
Students found themselves with some extra
time, usually found themselves competing
with friends to get the high score on
popular video games such as Donkey Kong,
Ms. Pac Man and Galaxians.
Movies were a popular choice for many
students, and with Tuesday night being 99
cent night, most took advantage of it and
saw hit movies such as Screwbalff, Toomkz,
and Spring Break. Whether one went with a
group of friends, or went with a date,
movies proved to be one of the most en-

Several popular rock groups, including
REO Speedwagon, Styx and Van Halen, as
well as famous Country-Western Singer
Hank Williams,jr. performed in the Kansas

provided students with live entertainment
throughout the year and were just another
way for them to enjoy themselves and have
a good time with friends.
Clubs such as Pogo's, King Arthur's and
Pooh Bear's provided an atmosphere for
those over 18 to enjoy. Many local clubs
featured live entertainment and had dance
floors. Tuesday night was Ladies Night at
the Stadium and offered free drinks for all
of the females if they paid a cover charge at
the door. Gathering with friends at the

Extra-curricular activities were plentiful.
Dances, athletic events, concerts, dramas

them and took advantage to go out and
have a relaxed evening.

Henry Fonda, shortly after receiving an
Oscar for his performance in On Golden

In his winning role Fonda played Norman

After graduating from high school in

Severance tax passesg

After a 28-month battle with the oil

The new law taxes oil, gas, coal and salt

Carlin began pushing for a severance
tax at the beginning of his first term in of-

1982 elections. Carlin's Republican oppo-
nent, Sam Hardage, campaigned against
the severance tax and Carlin defeated him
soundly. The election mandate Carlin

Many slain in massacreg
Supported and armed by Israel, the
massacre in Beirut was the work of
Lebanese Christian militiamen. The
Israelis invaded Muslim West Beirut on
the pretext of preventing bloodshed after
the murder of their principal Lebanese al-
ly, President-elect Bashire Gemayel.
They put their Christian friends in
charge of the Sabra and Shatila refugee
camps, which housed the families of
evacuated Palestinian fighting men. As
the Israelis stood by, Christian gunmen
rampaged through the two camps, ex-
ecuting hundreds of Palestinians. The ex-
act number may never he known, but
estimates ran as high as 1,000 including
some who died with their hands and feet
bound. Before leaving, the killers tried to
clean up their mess, witnesses saw
bulldozers leaving Sabra, their scoops pil-
ed high with bodies. But they did not
erase every trace of the slaughter.
Some of the survivors blamed the
massacre on members of Gemayel's
Phalangist party. Others said that the
killers belonged to the private army of
renegade Lebanese Major Sasd Haddad,
whose stronghold in Southern Lebanon
has been an Israeli protectorate for years.
When the Israelis invaded West
Beirut, they charged that at least 2,000
fighters from the Palestine Liberation
Organization had remained in the city in
violation of the withdrawal agreement
worked out by American special envoy
Philip Habib. Israel also broke the Habib
agreement, which guaranteed that the
relatives of the departed PLO men would
be protected. Instead, the Israelis sealed
off the camp trapping as many as 80,000
Palestianians inside, turned the area over
to the Christian militiamen and even fired

Adam's brother Stanley, 25, died that
evening. Theresa, 19, Stanley's wife of
three months, held on for two days until
doctors abandoned efforts to save her.
By that weekend seven Chicago-area
residents had died and authorities braced
themselves for still more victims in what
was to become the biggest consumer alert
in memory. It's source, capsules of Extra-
Strength Tylenol laced with cyanide, a
poison so deadly that it kills within
minutes. Tylenol's manufacturer,
johnson 8: johnson, a subsidary of the
McNeil Consumer Products Co., recalled
two batches of the medication, some

,Some experts feared that the episode

consumers threw away all the Tylenol on
hand, and many discarded other drugs
and household products as well.

history and the first regular-season
walkout in the 63-year existence of the
National Football League.
The players were irritated by the news
that the league had completed a record
television deal: S2,100,000,000 over a
five-year span. With the slogan "We Are
the Game," the players' union made as
its paramount demand that 55 percent of
the league's gross revenues be placed in a
central fund and paid to the players under
a salary-bonus system.
Matters were at a standstill as the season
opened, and after two weeks of play a
strike was called. An estimated 94 percent
of the players concurred with the union's
decision to strike.
The end of the strike brought a higher
wage scale for players, a new bonus plan, a
severance plan and other benefits.

sets new Shocker record
Antoine Carr closed out his career as a
forward for the Wichita State University
Shocker basketball team by being named
Missouri Valley Player of the Year, and an
All-American selection nationwide.
Carr rewrote the WSU record book in
his last season, becoming one of the best
players in Shocker history. His most
memorable record was the last game of
the season where he scored 47 points, a
new all-time single game scoring record
for a Wichita State player.
Carr was a local favorite in Wichita,
graduating from Heights High School and
being a top draft choice in the National
His accomplishments include being
ranked first in career field goal percentage
and field goals at Wichita State, and was
the first Wichita State player to be named
as Missouri Valley Player of the Year.
Carr led the Wichita State team to a
25-3 season record, the best winning
record of any Wichita State team. Despite
this, the Shockers and Carr were not
allowed to participate in post-season tour-
naments due to the final year of NCAA

Ted Bredehoft resigns
from athletic program
Ted Bredehoft resigned as head of the
Wichita State University athletic depart-
ment at the request of University Presi-
dent Clark Ahlberg. The resignation came
after Bredehoft found himself under
heavy fire for reigning over an athletic

quently penalized in the history of the
National Collegiate Athletic Association
The resignation ended weeks of
speculation, rumor and tension at the
university over Bredehoft's job status, and
it came as the university was investigating
alleged NCAA rules violations by the
football and basketball programs.

Rodgers, Hainmerstein's O laboma!
Take a group of people living in Indian
territory, add a romantic conflict between
a cowboy and a hired hand over a female,
sprinkle in the sales pitch of a smooth
traveling salesman and it resulted in two
hours of delightful entertainment when
the Northwest Fine Arts Department
presented Rodgers and Hammerstein's
Oklafaomal March 10, 11 and 12.
The musical's storyline concerns the
rivarly between Jud, a hired hand, and
Curly, a cowboy, for the hand of Laurey
Wfilliams, who lives with her Aunt Eller.
At the same time, Ado Annie, a friend of
Laurey's has a hard time making up her
mind who she wants to marry, a Persian
peddler, Ali Hakim, or Will Parker, the
best steer roper in 17 counties, who are
both in the battle for her hand, Will is
motivated by love and looks, while Ali
Hakim is motivated by the shotgun of An-
nie's father. By the end of the story con-
flicts are resolved and everyone is ready to
celebrate the pending statehood of the In-
dian territory now known as Oklahoma.
Being the most expensive productions
for the 1982-83 production season,
Oklahoma! cost an estimated s3,ooo with
the music rental fee at 51,100 In addition
to the monetary expenses, the 90 cast and
orchestra members spent approximately
180 hours in rehearsal for the three-night
Equal to the hours of the cast and or-
chestra were the hours put in by the
technical crew. In three days the
carpenters, headed by jay Nicholson and
Andy Tade, built Aunt Eller's house and
the Smokehouse. The carpenters worked
most of the school day and until rehearsal
ended late at night. The drop painters,
headed by Shawn Morse and Nancy Peck,
painted a sky backdrop 54 feet long 25
feet high, The only location large enough
to work on such a project was the grass
area behind the school swimming pool.

Illnesses produce postponement
for The Mousetrap Dinner Theatre
Hospitalization of the director,
laryngitis of key actors and winter colds
among cast members forced a last-minute
cancellation of the Annual Thespian Din-
ner Theatre in january. The production of
Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap was
rescheduled for March 29 and the two-
month postponement gave the cast
members time to rccuperate and practice
their lines for the play.
Christie's suspenseful murder-mystery
included a cast of characters who had very
opposing personalities, a boardinghouse
which sheltered the characters during a
blizzard, and of course, a murder that all
of the characters were prime suspects to.
A young couple, Giles and Mollie
Ralston, decided to open up a board-
inghouse in an inherited mansion, After
advertising in the London newspapers, the
vacancies were filled and the guests soon
arrived. They brought with them, not on-
ly luggage, but the news of a nearby
murder. The plot thickens when a
Sergeant Trotter, the last guest to arrive,
announces that he has come to investigate
the recent murder in London. Not reveal-
ed until the last minutes of the perfor-
mance, the murderer proved to be quite
insane and bent on revenge for having
had a disasterous childhood.
Director for the Thespian production of
The Mousetrap was Senior Nancy Peck.

Moliere's 'Imaginary Invalid' finishes
82-85 Northwest drama productions
After only a few days of rehearsal and
countless hours of memorizing lines, the
Northwest Drama Department presented
Moliere's Imrzgimzry Imfalid on April 21
The 17th century comedy presented the
acting debut for six of the 12 cast
members and finalized the drama produc-
tions for the 1982-83 season.
The play took place in the Paris home
of Monsieur Argan in 1674. In the open-
ing scene, Monsieur Argan is paying bills
and is unable to understand why last
month's bills were higher for his illnesses,
and this months bills are less, and yet, he
does not feel any better. Argan is faced
with more problems when Cleante,
desguised as a music teacher, comes to his
home to teach Angelique, Argan's
daughter, music. To hide his real identity,
Cleante gives Angelique a piece of paper
without words or music printed on it,
however they both improvise in song
about shepherds and shepherdesses to
keep up the front in Argan's presence.
Although they sing of a shepherd and
shepherdess who love each other, they are
really singing of themselves.
More problems await Argan when he
discovers that his wife, Beline, only loves
him for his money. This discovery is made
when a lawyer is asked to draw up a deed
of gift that the wife will receive upon
Argan's death. However Argan is more
concerned about seeing his daughter mar-
ried off to a doctor so that the son-in-law
will be able to take care of Argan's chronic
illnesses for free.
Audiences found themselves in much
laughter as they saw the comedy develop
and problems resolved in this French play.

At the rise of the curtain it was evident
that much time had been put in on the
show. The second annual Bearlesque, the
Northwest High School Fine Arts Depart-
ment's variety show' was held in the

dazzling array of color as the members of
the Concert Choir, dressed in circus
costumes invited the audience to Come

different eras, beginning with the Andrew
Sisters and carrying it through to Diana
Ross. The show had 50 different acts, and
involved both soloists and group numbers.

thusiastic solo's came from Chris Stuever,
who sang I Made it Through the Rain, Andy
Tade, who did a number cmphaisizing the
bad effects on going to the dentist in The
Painless Deutzkfs Song. Shawn Morse sang
a song that dealt with all the hanky panky
of the 2O's, And All That jazz and Kenny

After receiving a I rating at the

qualified for the State competition in
April. In addition to earning a I rating at
Regional, the Northwest Singers perform-
ed approximately 50 concerts during the
"The vocal music department was very
active this year as it should be," said Ver-
non Nicholson, vocal music director.
Besides going to Regional and State
Choir contests, the Concert Choir par-
ticipated in the Flint Hills Choral Music
Festival at Kansas State University, sang
with the Wichita State University Choir
and hosted the University of Kansas Choir
at a February concert. These activities gave
the students the opportunity to work with
a variety of directors. "It is very important
to work with as many directors as
possible," said Nicholson. "They fthe
directors? have something new and dif-
ferent to add to your education."
Several vocal students worked with
directors outside of the school day.
Through an audition in which each stu-
dent had to go in one at a time and sing
for a panel of three judges, 11 Northwest
vocalists were selected for District Choir
based on their diction, pitch and voice
quality. Northwest's representation in the
District Choir was the largest of any
Wichita high school. These District Choir
members were Chris Stuever, Celia Mor-
rison, Sharla Vogt, Cheryl Flowers, Sheri
Harp, Clifton Vogt, Shawn Morse, Kenny
Evans, Andy Tade, Mark Zonnefeld, Matt
Flesher and john Quinn. Following the
District Choir performance, another audi-
tion was held and Stuever, Evans, Tade
and the Vogts were selected to sing in the
"I learned how to really feel what we
were singing and acquire responsibility for
doing a piece of work right or not at all,"
said Evans. "The director had a great
sense of humor, but at the same time was
extremely dedicated to musical correct-
ness, integrity and emotion."
Vocal students gave an united effort in
the production of the first musical in
several years. The production, Oklahoma!
was chosen for its large cast in which many
students could become involved. Another
major undertaking was the production of
Bezzrlerque, a variety show featuring vocal
and instrumental music students.
The Northwest Singers gave over 50
performances singing in such places as
churches and several local civic organiza-
tions. The bulk of their performances,
however, were during the Christmas
season with special appearances at
Cowtown and at the Family Holiday Con-

Settling for a third place tie in the City

result of a season consisting of 4 wins and
3 losses for the sophomore football team.
The Grizzlies could have clinched the
City title with a victory over South, but
Doug Vannaman, head coach, said it
was a super year and had no complaints
in regard to the team. "Every game we
lost, we lost because we played a poor
first half. And if these young men learn

as a result, outscored their opponents

points. On the defense, Doug Rippel

Compiling an overall record of one
win and one loss, the Northwest junior
Varsity football team defeated Bishop

Because of a lack of players other

with Northwest. "Despite the team's

of the best ,IV teams Northwest has pro-

Completing the season with 8 wins and 8
losses in City League action, the Volleyball
team finished in 5th place. Head Coach
joan Krack comments, "Although we did
not finish as well as we possibly could have,
the overall record certainly does not reflect
the overall ability of the girls. We had days
when we were up and days when we were
down and unfortunately when we were
down we were unable to pull ourselves
together and play the way we needed to in-
order to win the game."
The highlight of the 1982-83 season was
beating North towards the end, said Krack.
Northwest clenched the victory by spiking
the Redskins 5-15, 15-9, 15-9. "The girls
were determined to do their best and they
were basically having a good day. They
always played well when they were up."
Two players received honors. junior
Dawn Thomas was selected on the All-City
Second Team and Danielle Cullinane
received Honorable Mention for her efforts.
Lettermen this year were Cullinane,
Thomas, Brenda Flory, Stephanie Blair,
Suzy Patton, Shawnda Hubbard, jenny
johnson, Cris Bulman and Barbara Bosken.
Team Co-Captain Dawn Thomas said,
"We all had a positive attitude toward the
game, even when we were losing. And I
think having that kind of an' outlook
brought us together as a team and gave us
the determination to keep on trying, even
though it seemed like we had given up."
Senior Brenda Flory stated, "This year
was slow for us, but we were always looking
for new ways to improve and become better.
All of us helped each other when the other
needed it and that kept the friendships bet-
ween us close. In all, I think the sport is a
lots of fun and has many great rewards,
even if we were not the best."

The team ran a total of seven races, in-

in Great Bend.
To begin with, team membership was
small, but by the end of the season there
were 11 men and two women on the
team. For each of the seniors it was their
first year of cross country running, and
even though the team was not well-
experienced, it managed to finish in the
middle of the standings at most of its

The Grizzlies had some great in-
dividual runners. O'Connor placed 19th
in State, 5th in City, and set a new
school record of 10:01 for the two-mile
run. Tom Zajkowski placed as the
fifth fastest junior in the City. The only

"They never gave up and were constantly

The team's strength was in rebounding

Soccer squad gets
first winning year
By achieving an overall record of
7-4-2, the Northwest soccer team earned
its first winning season in four years.
With a City League record of 2-2-2, the
team placed fourth in the City.
In the Titan Classic Tournament,
Northwest defeated Valley Center 3-2
and East 3-1, but lost to Heights 5-2
and, as a result, received fifth place.
Besides games against other City teams,
the Grizzlies played games with Valley
Center and Derby. Northwest defeated
Valley Center both times 4-2 and 1-0.
Against Derby, the team lost the first
match 2-0, but one week later reversed
the score and won 2-0. The win against
Derby was the first and only time the
Panthers have been defeated by a Nor-
thwest team and the only loss sustained
by Derby, no other City team was able to
beat the Panthers.
Coach Bobby Bribiesca attributed the
strengths of the team to the seniors who
provided experience. Many of the seniors
had been with the team for the past four
years and wanted to end the season with
a winning record.
Northwest scored 26 goals against its
opponents who scored only 22.
Goalkeeper Troy Rochat had a 1.7 goals
against average, and of the 26 points
scored by Northwest, 13 were scored by
Dung Doan, member of the All-City
First Team. Senior Captain Ricky Suarez
and junior Brian Stevens were named to
the All-City Second Team.

Finishing with a 6-0 league record, the
girls' swim team captured the fourth
straight City League Championship title
and went on to place third at the State
Meet held in Lawrence on May 15 and
14. The State Meet was conducted dif-
ferently than the City Meet. Swimmers
had to first qualify among the top 12
before being eligible to swim at State.
Six Northwest swimmers, plus a relay
team had qualifying times for State, all
of which placed fifth or better in their in-
The closest duals in city action were
against North and East, but the Grizzlies
defeated each tearn by 20 points. The
team's success was due to the dedication
of the team members and because of the
large number of swimmers. They were a
fairly young team, consisting of only one
senior, Heidi Prior. According to the
head coach, Sharon Parker, "Even
though the team was young, we still had
what it took to be the best in the City
and take third at State. I feel that next
year's team will dominate over all
Wichita schools again and possibly
dominate over our biggest contender,
the Shawnee Mission schools."
juniors George Cooper and Soni
Cooper, Sophomores Lisa Reynolds,
Nancy Langrehr and Charissa Higgins,
and Freshman Melissa Shultz were the six
that qualified for state competition in in-
dividual events. Those that qualified in a
relay event were Senior Heidi Prior,

Baseball team wins
2nd place at State
Dedication, determination, a lot of hard
work and many long hours of what seemed
to be never ending practice proved to be
rewarding for the Grizzly baseball team.
They were able to clench both the Hays
Tournament Championship and the
Regional Championship and go on to place
second at State held in El Dorado, May 23.
Finishing the season with 6 wins and 6
losses in the City League and an overall
record of 13-7, the Grizzlies had one of
their best seasons ever. ' 'The attitude of the
players was very good. They had great team
spirit and were an enjoyable group of young
men to work with. Their courage and con-
fidence kept us alive and competitive,"
stated Head Coach Roger McCune.
By defeating East 5-0 and North 5-2 in
Regional play-offs, the team won their se-
cond Regional Championship and qualified
for State, where they were victorious over
Hays and Pittsburg, but were finally
defeated by K.C. Ward. ' 'I am just sorry we
let the big one get away. They worked so
hard and they deserved it. It just was not
our day. We did not play poorly, though,
they just played a little bit better," com-
"I really enjoy the sport, and when you
are able to accomplish the one thing you set
out to do, it makes all of the time, hard
work, and effort you put into it worth
while," said Senior Scott Hale. Even
though they were not able to come back as
state champions, their pride of what they
had accomplished was evident.
At the end of the season the team elected
Senior john Quinn, pitcher, as Most
Valuable Player. Quinn was also selected as
the All-City first team pitcher and was part
of the All-Torunament Team at Hays.
Others on the All-Tournament team were
Senior Scott Hale, Sophomore Todd
Dcvereaux, and Senior Brian Darnman.
Damman was also elected Most Valuable
Player at the Hays Tournament and was
chosen on the All-City second team. Those
receiving All-City Honorable Mentions were

Pep assemblies present the perfect opportunity for the
cheerleaders to combine efforts in building a pyramid.
Bringing home the Award of Excellence
from the National Cheerleading Associa-
tion's Cheerleading Camp at Fort Hays
State College was a highlight for the
1982-83 cheerleaders. The Grizzly squads
competed with 50 other squads from all
over Kansas and Missouri for four days and
at the end of the camp, the Northwest Var-
sity Football Cheerleaders were awarded the
Award of Excellence for being the most
outstanding squad at the camp. The Varsity
and junior Varsity squads were awarded a
Super Star Squad ribbon and Spirit Stick for
being the most spirited.
When the squads returned from camp
they found themselves busy preparing for
the upcoming seasonal sports events. Sell-
ing magnetic notepads and holding a sum-
mer clinic for the sophomores who were in-
terested in becoming a Sophomore
Cheerleader were just a few of the many
projects they participated in.
Cheering at all of the football, basket-
ball, volleyball and wrestling contests gave
the teams the support and enthusiasm they
needed to feel encouraged. The
cheerleaders also gave support to spring
athletic competitions. The cheerleaders
were also noted for the candy sacks they
made for the team members and the posters
they painted and hung throughout the
Commons. Many hours were spent baking
and decorating cookies and cakes for in-
Being a cheerleader meant more than
performing in front of a crowd. It also
meant spending many long hours practicing
and perfecting cheers and pyramids that
were performed at games and pep
assemblies. A lot of money was spent by
each cheerleader in buying and baking
goodies for the sacks.
The general consensus of the cheerleaders
was that being a part of a spirit squad was a
lot of fun, but definitely involved more
work and time than most people realize.

pressions written on their faces.
Other popular booths were the jail, hit-

balloon bust, nickle pitch and ping pong
bounce. Foods from foreign countries were
plentiful for interested buyers.

Sponsoring an annual International Din-
ner is one way the foreign language classes
help to bridge a stronger understanding of
the many cultures present at Northwest.
To give parents, faculty and other
students a taste of other cultural flavors,
students in foreign language clubs helped
to prepare foods from Germany, Italy,
Spain, Mexico, France, China and Viet
Nam. Tacos, tostados, streussel, pastries
and several different kinds of egg rolls were
just some of the foods that were prepared
for the people to eat.
The International Dinner changed its
entertainment this year. Instead of having
each foreign language club present
something to represent its studied culture,
the Spanish Club provided something
special. The entertainment was a colorful
donkey shaped pinata for the little kids to
try to break. When the pinata was finally
broken, all little kids scrambled to collect
the goodies that were inside the donkey.

Traditional fund-raising events such as
class competitions, spirit chains, and
assemblies were featured during the week of
October 11-14. Innes Villalpando's second
hour Spanish class won the class competi-
tion by donating 5136, an average of 39 per
student. To raise the money, the class sold
donuts and cupcakes throughout the week.
They also took up a collection each day con-
sisting only of spare change, no dollar bills
were allowed to be donated. At 10 cents a
link, the junior class accumulated enough
links to have the longest spirit chain worth
5182. Numerous intra-class competitions
were common during the annual drive. Se-
cond hour classes would challenge each
other to a contest with the class donating
the least money providing pizza or other
food items to the winning class. A special
time was set aside after the competition for
the two classes to get together for the party.
An Anything-Goes Assembly featuring
numerous class competition activities pro-
duced a last minute collection totaling over

beans in flour and foot races were a few of

The link between the students and the
administration lies in the hands of the
Student Senate. Their goal for 1982-83
was not only to close the gap between
students and administration, but to get
as many students involved in school ac-
tivities as possible.
To achieve this goal, Student Senate
sponsored Homecoming, Bear Frolics,
Pizzaz Talent Show and dances for the
student body and provided luncheons
for the faculty and staff. The ntfoney that
was raised through their activities went
toward their yearly project or was
donated to the school.

vice, the promotion of leadership and
the encouragement of the development
of character were the main objectives of

At Wichita High School Northwest the definition of academics was ex-
panded and enlarged into course curriculum that allowed teachers to
work closely with students, students to work closely with fellow students,
guest speakers to promote course interest, and field trips to teach subject

to school policies and working with

four administrators' daily schedule full.
Although specific assignments were
delegated to each administrator, Dr.
john Gasper still assumed full irespon-
sibility for the overall operation of the
five-year old school. A meeting was held
each week to keep the fotir ad-
ministrators abreast of the activities and
needs of the school.
Being the principal of a 1,150 student
high school was a fulfilling job for Dr.
Gasper. Pleased with the current level of
instruction and accomplishments of the
school, Gasper was always seeking new
ways to improve Northwest. "l,believe
that we have a good school, with ex-
cellent and enthusiastic students taught
by good teachers with strong support
personnel," he said. "Throughithe ef-
forts of out students, parents and staff,
we have continued to take a look at our
strengths and weaknesses and will con-
tinue to seek ways and means to improve
our school in the future." i
Handling enrollment for the current
term while organizing curriculum for the
next year kept Associate Principal Fred
Spexarth active. To facilitate the enroll-
ment process a new method of enroll-
ment fot the 1982-83 school year was
tried. Instead of enrolling for one
semester only, students enrolledzfor the
full year. "Enrolling for both semesters
was easier," he said. "It gave us more

Assistant Principal Jerry Gooclmon
spent his time coordinating athletic

students was much better this year than

have become more responsible and
realize the value of a good education."

Numerous recogitions and honors were
won by students in the art and business
departments. Competitions in each area
provided the opportunity for students to be
honored for outstanding accomplishments
For many students who had an interest in
business, the course offerings provided an
opportunity for growth and learning. Dur-
ing the first semester the business law class
took a field trip to the court house and
learned how criminal court cases were tried,
while watching the first day of a rape trial.
The personal finance class followed the
stock market for two weeks and each stu-
dent was taught how to figure his own tax
report. In a unit on the "real cost" offinan-
cing a new car, students soon realized that a
car costs more than just a sticker price. Of-

Art has long been described as a form of
expression and for many Northwest art
students, their expressions paid off as many
were recognized for their works.
At the 1985 Scholastic Art competition,
Northwest art students received more gold
keys than any Kansas school at the exhibit,
having 30 pieces of art on exibit and winn-
ing 16 gold keys.
"Approximately 4,500 pieces of work
were submitted," said Don Filby, art
department chairman, "and 750 pieces
were picked for the exhibit." Out of the
750, only 100 were given gold keys. Those
receiving gold keys were Robert Barber,
john Allen, Fred Wallace, julie Gilliland,
Greg Schlyer, Tom Lezniak, Brian Lane and
Other art honors were given in the form
of scholarships. Barber and Wallace receiv-
ed Miller Scholarships from WSU and
Barber also received a scholarship from The
Iwcbitan magazine. Steve Cooper, school
cartoonist, received a scholarship from KSU
and received the Outstanding Art Student

Throughout the year student art work was
displayed in the art wing, the library and at
the Wichita Art Museum.

Outstanding features, such as the Media
and Guidance Centers and four elective
foreign languages, helped students to ex-
pand their learning ability and explore new
career ideas. The counselors, librarians and
foreign language teachers provided
assistance to the students continually
throughout the day with questions or pro-
blems they may have experienced.
One of the main targets for Margaret
Hawk, Ruthe Tolbert and Victor Wilmoth,
counselors, was to become acquainted with
each individual student and this concerns,
career ideas and future needs. They were
also responsible for helping students with
scheduling conflicts, career and college
decisions, and filling out applications for
scholarships.They also assisted in giving the
ACT , SAT and PSAT college entry exams.
"I try to help students help themselves,"
While the Media Center offered a place
for students to relax and study, there were
many unique things about the facility. The
Northwest library was one of only two high
school libraries in the city that were open
during lunch. This gave students an oppor-
tunity to have a little extra study time
before afternoon classes. The library was
also the site for many students' art work and
photographs that were on display. The
openess, displays, and being able to check
out virtually anything the library had made
Northwests' Media Center different from all
French, German, Latin, and Spanish
were the four foreign languages offered at
Northwest. While taking a foreign language
helps students with future schooling, it also
gave them an opportunity to become aware
of foreign culture and customs. Several
times this year, the classes had culture days.
They fixed food native to the country of the
language they were studying.

Industrial Arts and home economics are
two departments that offered many ioppor-

future careers. f
Seven courses were offered in the in-
dustrial arts department. Students enrolled
in the auto mechanics class were given the
opportunity to make actual car repairs as a
part of their in-class assignment. Woods I
and ll courses were offered to give the stu-
dent a chance to learn about carpentry and
hand-craftmanship on modern equipment
and at an advanced level. Other courses
such as drafting and welding allowed
students to gain experience in a technical
field that may aid them in their? future
careers. The industrial arts department
helped students gain interest in a technical
field for possible careers. i
Home economics was not just cooking
and sewing, it 'was also a little of social
studies, math, science and foreign
languages taught together. Science was
taught in cooking classes as students learned
that when water is added to bakingf soda a
gas is given off and this gas is used in mak-
ing bread riseg A little of foreign language
was introduced whenever a foreign dish was
being prepared. The social studies and
math part of home economics was used
when students learned to deal with the
public while running a fast food restaurant.

subjects at the same time. 5

In addition to enrolling in regular or

opportunity to enroll in several English-
related courses. Some students found
their interest in drama, speech, debate
and forensics while others showed in-
terest in developing writing skills and
working on specialized publications such
as the literary magazine, school
newspaper and yearbook.
As part of a city-wide writing assess-
ment pfOgI9.l'1'l, all Northwest students
were actively involved in the writing pro-
ject. The activity evaluated g each
student's ability to complete a mail-
order form, write a business letter and
write a descriptive story from a given pic-
ture. After each student's work was
evaluated by a Northwest English
teacher, the scores were submitted to a
central office where they were compared
to scores in other city schools.
To give students taking English III

History the opportunity to combine skills
needed for each course, the two classes
were combined into a two-hour block.
The students were able to take field trips
and do more lengthy projects. Also, the

Social Studies was a department which
offered varied courses from psychology to
government to U.S. and world history.
Students had a broad choice of courses to
receive social studies credit.
As part ofa unit in U.S. History, three
Northwest students participated in the
Close-Up Foundation in Washington,
D.C. "The program was an excellent op-
portunity for students to get involved
with and it gave them a chance to see
first-hand the complications of running a
country," said Cheryl McGilbray, history
teacher and trip sponsor. While in the
nation's capitol Donna Bolden, Barbara
Bosken and Kelli Brown attended many
seminars, met Senators and Con-
gressemen, made many tours including
the Capitol, jefferson Memorial, Lincoln
Monument and White House. This was
the first time a group from Northwest
has participated in the program.
Psychology classes went on several
field trips and had many speakers come
to their classroom. A mock airplane crash
landing took place and many Northwest
students, along with students from other
schools, participated in the crash and
rescue mission. The purpose of the crash
was to see how Wichita and Sedgwick
County emergency units would do if
such an incident should occur and it
helped prepare them for an incident of
The social studies curriculum was one
which took a creative teacher to vary
techniques once in a while. Students
could become bored and begin to slack
off if nothing is there to offer them a
new and different challenge. Teachers in
this department most often succeeded in
varying the class from time to time and
found it very rewarding to keep the at-
tention and interest of various students.
To add variety, speakers were often in-
vited in the classroom to speak to the
students on many different topics.
Representatives from oil companies,
local businesses and agencies, and the
City Commission were a few such
speakers. Members from the voter
registration agency came to register eligi-
ble seniors for the November election.
Students took field trips to the Halstead
hospital and local mortuaries. y

Career Lab, English as a Second
Language, LD and EMH classes offer a
special service to students at Northwest.
Assisting all students with information
about potential career choices was the
chief objective of the career lab. Through
the year the lab was open to all students.
Each sophomore English class spent ap-
proximately five hours in the career lab
researching jobs and persuing post high
school information. "The careeri lab is
not designed to make students ldecide
their careers at that very moment, but
hopefully to help students get a head
start and interest in a few careers," said
Wanda Ecker, career lab instructor.
information for approximately 30.000
occupations were available in the career
lab to be researched by students. The use
of computers came in handy as over 785
of the 50,000 jobs were filed on com-
puters. All career lab information was
updated every six to eight months so that
accurate information was available
Speaking the English language has
become an expected language foij many
students. But to those who did not grow
up in an English culture, the difference
in language provided barriers. For Grace
Blum, English as a second language
teacher, her main objective in teaching
English to students whose native
language was not English was to teach it
as any other foreign language. "English
as a second language is just the same class
as Latin, French and Spanish," stated
Blum. "The only difference is these
students need to learn the language
because where they live now calls flpr it."
Students in her class were primarily Viet-
namese and each student was put on dif-
ferent learning levels ranging from how
well they could speak English to how
much English they could understand.
Students that needed helpi with
reading or math skills could find that
assistance along with listening oristudy-
ing skills in the Learning Disabilities
resource room. The facility was well-
equipped and students made rapid pro-
gress in their specialized area. W
In the Emotionally Mentally Han-
dicapped class, students learned English,
history, math and science. However,
most of the emphasis was placed on
home living and vocational skills. The
students learned to sew and cook, along
with general household duties., "We
have an alternative way of learnirtg were
we learn the same as other students, but
using an approach that works for us,"
said Nancy Hancock, EMH teacher.

"I'm here to help you, not to hurt
you," was the way Esther Franklin,
security specialist, expressed the attitude
of the support services staff. This part of
the school consisted of two part-time
nurses, two security specialists, a social
worker and a school psychiatrist. The
support service personnel were constantly
seen throughout the school lending a
hand with anything from turning on
candy machines to helping students with
personal problems. e
Security specialists kept busy in trying
to prevent vandalism i both in the
building and parking lots, helping
students with car problems, and many
other duties to ensure the 'safety of
students. They worked a considerable
amount outside school hours for athletic
games, practices and various other school
The two nurses carried out numerous
tasks. They screened all sophomores for
hearing and all juniors for vision, in ad-
dition to giving both tests to new
students. Approximately 100-125
students went to the nutseis office every
week for various reasons. The nurses also
performed comprehensive evaluations
and counseling, and they informed
teachers about specificproblemsisuch as
drug abuse. p is S s
The social worker helped in problem
solving with both students and their
parents. As a member of the evaluation
team, the social worker helped toescreen
students for appropriate education place-
ment and made referrals when necessary.
The job required working with atten-
dance neglect and abuse, and working
closely with other socialagcnciesg Part of
the social worker's job included inform-
ing teachers about certain social pro-
blems for a better understanding, and
working with students to meet' their
needs whether it be a new environment
or other adjustments. p , - t
The school psychologist was also a
member of the evaluation team and
worked closely with the social ,workerg
The psychologists job was primarily to
test students individually and help with
any psychological problems. S 1 S ' T
One of the main ideas of the support
services staff was that you get out of your
job what you put in. The support service
staff remained as an authority, but also
as a friend to students.

tackle many jobs,
Throughout the course of the school
year, the Northwest clerical staff tackled
several jobs and responsibilities.
Aside from taking phone calls, typing
bulletins and letters, writing admit slips
and recording attendance, they did
several odd jobs and helped out when
they were needed. However, some of
their "simple" tasks did not always seem
easy. Taking phone calls became difficult
when an angry parent was on the other
end. The secretaries were usually the first
people to talk to upset parents and the
matter had to be handled tactfully.
Sometimes the clerical staff had to call
parents about their students attend-
ance, a job which was not always plea-
sant. Despite some of their difficult
duties, the clerical staff felt that normal-
ly working in the school offices was en.
joyable andthat they had a good rapport
with the students and with the ad-
For the clerical staff, school lasted
longer than the 36 weeks that students
attended classes. Some members stayed
for three weeks after school ended and
came back four weeks before it started
again, and others worked all through the
summer. Summer months were filled
with finalizing schedules, ordering and
receiving supplies for the next year,
numbering and stamping new text-
books, preparing student and faculty
handbooks and an endless list of other
Some members of the clerical staff
worked with the counselors, some work-
ed with the administration, some worked
with attendance, and others specialized
in various areas to help keep the school
running smoothly. Their diversity of
duties required dedication, but proved
to be helpful to everyone. 1

Two shifts of custodial and engirierring
crews and one shift of food service workers
were assigned to Northwest to provide
general maintenance and school meals.
The food service workers started their day
at 6 a.m. with preparations of breakfast
foods such as glazed donuts, cinnamdn rolls
and hot breakfast sandwiches for students
and faculty members who did not have time
to eat breakfast at home. After the breakfast
rush, food service employees began prepar-
ing the lunch meals. New food items were
added to the fast food menu. These new
items included barbeque ham, taco salads,
corn dogs, chicken nuggets and strawberry

Morning preparation for the day started
when engineers set the thermostats and
custodians turned on the lights at approx-
imately 6 a.m. The duties of first shift
custodians involved preparing for morning
assemblies, keeping the commons area
clean both before and after lunch, ,and
assisting wherever needed.
Aside from the usual responsibilities of
cleaning classrooms, washing windows and
vacuuming floors, the second shift custodial
crew provided many special services for
evening activities at Northwest. During the
basketball season custodians swept the
basketball courts at half-time to insure
against possible injuries to players.Q After
school dances, the entire custodial staff
stayed after to clean the commons for the
next day's classes, Extra time and effort was

When thinking about the operation of a
school one immediately thinks tabout
teachers, principals and students, however a
school would not be able to function
without the support and help of the food
service, engineering and custodial icrews.
Crowd . . .
CLASSES were composed of many crowds of people, and when looking
past the crowds the eye focuses on individuals, not the mass as a whole.
Although Northwest was being recognized for its academics, sports and
fine arts programs, the school would not rightly be so if it had not been
for the individuals who make it that way.
The leaders of tomorrow were leaders of today, showing good leader-
ship qualities which began with the various classes. The sophomore,
junior and senior classes set examples for all of the people, both in the
community and in the world. The exchange students took back home
with them the things they had learned at Northwest and in the United
States to share with the people in their country, and in turn, the students
at Northwest influenced people of other countries.

Shaven heads add liveliness,
fun to school atmosphere
Shaving your head became a sort of 'craze' among several
male students. Perhaps, it was the one thing that brought a
chuckle and a smile to everyone's face and created a more livelier
This new fashion among the males all started one day in early
March whenjunior Brad Rosenak shaved his head during lunch.
He was then followed by 14 other juniors and few sophomores
and seniors. By the end of March, stubbled heads were not an
uncommon sight while passing through the halls. These 'skin
heads', as they were often referred to, soon became the center of
attention. Classmates teased and made jokes about their friends
and their new style of hair.
Many opinions were formed by the student body as to why
these guys did such a crazy thing, but only the individual,
himself, knew. "I've had my head shaved before and I liked
it...it is easier to take care of," said Rosenak.
"My friends said I didn't have the nerve to go through with
it," said junior Todd Edwards.
"All my friends were doing it," said juniorjohn Honer while
Eric Meitner stated, "It was just something to do."
Whatever the reason was, there was one thing that they had in
common: it would be at least three months before they could
style their hair as usual.

Tim also traveled to the World Jamboree, which was held in
Alberta., Canada during the summer of 1983. At the Jamboree
he met scouts from all over the world and backpacked the Cana-
dian Rockies and attend the Calgary Rodeo.
In addition to scouting, Tim has been active in other scouting
organizations such as Order of the Arrow and Explorer Post 703.

McLemore, Brightup keep
interest in percussion alive
Seven years is a long time to stay interested in something you
began at the age of 10. juniors Tim McLemore and Kevin
Brightup had no trouble in keeping their interest in percussion
McLemore having taken lessons for seven years and Brightup
for five are very active in their field of interest. They have both
participated in other bands and orchestras besides the ones at
Northwestg groups like Youth Symphony, KMEA District and
State, City Band and the City Honor Band. McLemore has also
participated in his church orchestra and won fifth place in a Na-
tional Talent Contest.
Brightup's main interest is in drums. "I want to be a profes-
sional drummer more than a percussionistf' he said, "and
maybe when I'm older I would like to teach percussion.
McLemore's main interest is in Mallet Percusion and playing
Latin music. He would also like to go on to be a professional. He
has gotten a step ahead of Brightup by already giving lessons to a
couple of his own students. Percussion is the only area in music
that they both know very well, but they are happy with it.
Competing against each other to see who is the best keeps
them both practicing hard. So in a few years time, start to look
for the names Mclemore and Brightup. With all of the hard
practice and experience behind them, both musicians should be
ready to fulfill their dream.

Strong leadership efforts
Throughout high school, Northwest students experienced
many new things, and while all experiences were equally impor-
tant and played a major role on their lives, only a few were
significant enough to become those moments that will be
remembered in the future.
The first year in high school was a new and exciting challenge
for the 417 incoming sophomores, and with strong leadership
from the class officers: Derrick Nielsen, president, Lisette
Cullinane, vice-president, and Holly Hobbs, secretary-treasurer,
they truly gave an extreme effort to accomplish the one thing
that makes a group of students become a class: unity.
Being united in their effort to make a name for themselves
and their support for one another made this class unique. While
the effort to bring the sophomore class together was up to each
individual student, the result showed a highly spirited and
academically achieving class. Over 40 per cent of those that
made the semester honor roll were sophomores.
This year was only a beginning for the class of 1985 and their
accomplishments. With the right kind of leadership and
guidance during the next two years, all students will be able to
achieve their goals and maintain the high standards set this year
for the rest of their life.

Sophomores to enhance
Throughout the first five years at Northwest, many traditions
were established. One of these traditions was a program called
'Adopt-A-Spooe'. This program has been a part of Northwest
for four years and was undertaken in an attempt to help young
sophomores adjust to the changes from junior high to high
The program was designed to make sophomores more at ease
in their new environment and give them an older friend to come
to with any problems or questions about their new school. In the
process, an adopted sophomore received a free lunch, treated to
them by his adopter and a friend who is experienced in the ways
of the school.
Even though the program had been around for a while, a way
had not been found to get all the sophomore class members
adopted. Some of the sophomores that were not adopted felt
that they were left out. But the class of '85 doesn't want the 'left
out' feeling to continue. "I was not adopted and I felt bad
about it. So I know that next year I'm gonna do my share of
adopting Qincoming sophomoresjf' said one sophomore stu-
Adpot-A-Spooe has worked. Many sophomores were glad that
someone was there to help them out at the beginning of the
school year. So the class of '85 wants to not only carry on this
Northwest tradition, but to make it better.

Sophomore class experiences
freedom of open lunch
There are many advantages and privileges the sophomores ac-
quired when they made the transition from junior high to high
school. Among these was open lunch.
Northwest's policy allowed all students the opportunity to
leave the school grounds during their 45-minute lunch period.
Students were able to eat out at the variety of fast food
restaurants located near the school or go home. They could also
stay on campus and either purchase a school lunch for 151.20 or
bring a sack lunch from home.
Because students were permitted to leave the school grounds
during this time, they could also run errands and make quick
trips home to get a forgotten assignment or school books needed
for their afternoon classes. Many students found it an easy way to
finish home work or simply visit with friends they otherwise did
not see throughout the day. Some students were permitted to
participate in activities held in the gymnasium such as ping-
pong, basketball and volleyball.
Open lunch provided much freedom, that while most
students appreciated and respected the responsibility that went
with it, others abused it. On several occasions, students would
use the time to consume alcoholic beverages or use it as an ex-
cuses to be late to their next class after lunch. The abuse of the
open lunch policy caused some inconvenience for the ad-
ministration and other classmates, however, the open lunch
policy was not altered during the school year. '

'Double vision' abounds
in sets of sophomore twins
Double vision was a common sight when walking by the
sophomore locker section. It was not a call for alarm of eyes go-
ing out of focus, but there were many twins that were wandering
the halls. Some students noticed the sophomores were alive with
eight sets of twins and surpassed the senior and junior twins by
Sophomore twins were both identical and fraternal and had
quite different personalities. Being a twin created minor pro-
blems such as sharing, competing and developing companion-
ship. "Kara and I do compete in some ways, such as my jealousy
of her grades," said Kim Woodward. "But she has her thing
and I have mine."
Although the many sets of twins enjoyed their individuality,
they also enjoyed a close friendship with their other half. "I am
closer to Matthew than my other sisters and brother because we
are friends, we have classes together and we see each other in
many different situations," said Lisette Cullinane,
For jeff Cummings, being a twin did not mean a close rela-
tionsip. "We are very different and do not have much in com-
mon," he said about his brother john.
Sophomore twins were Bernice and Donald Collins, Lisette
and Matthew Cullinane, jeff and john Cummings, Deena and
Donna Cunningham, Brian and Bruce Gilchrist, Darryll and
David Higgins, Lee and Fay Mathews, and Kara and Kim Wood-
Sophomores select courses,
teachers, hours for '83-84
"Great! I can finally take the courier I want to take and the
hour: that I want to take them. "
"Super! Now that I have fourth hour lunch I can .fee my
j91'eud.f I wouldn 't ree otherwise. "
These are just a few of the comments made by sophomores
after they experienced their first enrollment process of selecting
their courses, teachers and hours for the next school year.
Selecting classes for their junior year proved to be a giant step
towards their own independence. If the sophomore's schedule
did not work out with the schedule of classes offered, it was up
to the student to meet with his counselor to straighten out the
Most students found that choosing their own courses and class
hours was advantageous both socially and academically. Socially,
choosing one's own classes allowed the student to take classes
and share the same lunch hour with friends. Academically, the
student was able to take the courses that would be beneficial in a
planned area of study for future career opportunities.
Unknown to many sophomores, an activity commonly called
"pulling cards" had to be enacted before a student was officially
enrolled in a course. Sophomores, like juniors, found this
responsibility more difficult than choosing the actual course.
"just when I got all of my cards pulled except one, the course
closed," said Sophomore Mac Bostic. "It took me a while, but I
got the classes I wanted for next year."

Sophomores give support
to 'S-P-O-O-E' athletes
Having two sophomore football players start on the varsity
football team was perhaps the one thing that kept the
sophomore spirit alive. Even though the sophomores often got
'S-P-O-O-E-D' at pep assemblies and class competitions, their
will to make a name for themselves never died.
Being new and unacquainted with the traditions of Northwest
was initially a setback for the sophomore classf But after the
school year got underway, they broke through the ice and were
continually competitive in wall decorating contests and
The class of '85 had two good reasons to become alive and as
spirited as they were. Chad Faulkner andjay Allen were the only
two sophomores to start on the varsity football team. This, of
course, was a great honor and with it came many responsibilities.
Lifting weights during the summer and attending all practices
went along with the pride of playing in the evening games and
representing their class.
"I was thrilled to start for Northwest, but even more so, I was
proud to be a part of the sophomore class," said Faulkner. "I
feel like the team's success was a group effort and I'm glad the
class of '85 showed their support."
Sophomores were eager to show their support for their fellow
classmates. "The sophomores certainly showed the up-
perclassmen what spirit was made of," said Allen. "I feel as
though it was a thrill for my classmates to have someone to cheer
for. Northwest spirit, in general, was extremely high, and that
really helped the team."

out of t
the Crowd ..
The 1983 Szlvertgb staff has 4
tured, with pictures and words,
theme of Steppzhg Out of
Crowd Many times people,
even schools, must rem
themselves from a large groul
develop individual talents
skills. The end of the 1982
school year brought to a close
first five-year history for Wicl
High School Northwest. Within
the. five-year period a foundation
was set, traditions were -started and
a school name was established bas-
ed upon its academic, athletic, ac-
tivity and performance programs.
No longer will Northwest be
known for its new facilities, but for
its accomplishments and contribu-
tions to Wichita and the rest of the
u.L.A , , -A .
