If the dictionary is correct, then the renovat- or Forest has been a “Classic In The Making .” Yet the classic means much more. There are many cherished moments. Those classic times spent either with best friends or with that special someone. There are the times spent in the participation of sports; that memorable game against North Judson during football sectionals would certainly rate as a classic moment. Other special events that occured during the school year, or perhaps even that practical joke that you played will live in your mind for years to come. River Forest is a classic in every sense of the word. Many of our stu- dents will become a part of R.F. history. They either will be remembered as that certain ’jock’ who scored the winning point at the decisive game, the queen of the homecoming court, the academically inclined student who became Valedictorian, or maybe even the student who was always full of fun. As you flip through these pages, you will see the classic events of the 1987-88 school year and hopefully enjoy every minute of it! The superintendent, Mrs. Chnupa, along u ith the members of the school board were very excited and pleased with the remodeling of the gym lobby. f 2 OPENING If ) Cove tAe aetv CoMy de ceutee J £eeC co t ont ACe. 7t aCtHoet ao tAouyA } n C t nty TOO ' t taCAt tty to nuf doif ' Uettd i t- AteeuC o iet a, AeiCC- UKUf. (fi a .iAen y ff The spirit contained in the halls of River Forest inspires many students to work to- gether such as Seniors, Dan Quick and Andrea Fields, in a partnership that has seemed to grow over the ye rs. OPENING 3 “M-M-M-Max Headroom” and “C-C-C- Coca-Cola " were the winning combination for the Senior Hallway during Football Homecom- ing. Kim Page. Shannon Davis, Ginger Clary, and Judy Wheeler crowd around many classic and ‘‘new wave” furry friends while relaxing in the remodeled lobby. “LIGHTS . . . CAMERA . . . ACTION new stars set the pace for a new wave in movies , sitcoms , and mini-series. Back to the Fast Classic movies were a well lik- ed form of entertainment through- out the school year. Among the more popular were: “The Wizard of Oz”, “Casablanca " , “ The Dirty Dozen”, and “Gone with the Wind. " Many students found them- selves watching these movies at home with family and close friends. The romance, mystery, and action packed oldies provided welcome relief from the hectic stressful modern life. The celebrities of yesteryear were recreated many times during different events and activities. Stu- dents enjoyed dressing in the clas- sic costumes of their favorite char- acters. At the Masquerade Dance, Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin- man, the Lion, as well as Franken- stein and his Bride appeared. 4 OPENING Entertainment: The Classics Revived It’s movie time The theaters with their var- ied movies were popular enter- tainment for teachers and stu- dents. Several hit movies aired in the Spring and Fall. Fatal At- traction, Three Men and a Baby, Planes, Trains, and Automo- biles, Dirty Dancing, and Less Than Zero were just a few of the better liked movies that were seen by Ingots. Television, like theatre, pro- vided us with many new pro- grams as well as continuations of old ones. Alf, 21 Jump Street, Bill Cosby, and L.A. Law were watched religiously by many. Whether in the movies or on television, three stars seemed to keep reappearing. Patrick Swayze made appearances in Dirty Dancing and Red Dawn; Kirk Cameron showed his ta- lents in Growing Pains and the movie Like Father, Like Son, and Molly Ringwald made appear- ances in For Keeps and The Breakfast Club. J i Marilyn Monroe, a beauty queen from the 50’s and 60’s, was immortalized with a short movie career. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were a comical duo from the 30’s and 40’s. Marija Watts , Allen Neyhart and Don Phelps help bring back memories of long ago by recreating these famous personalities, respectively. Deanne Dougherty and David Ratliff pose as the modern day Scarlet O ' Hara and Rhett But- ler from the classic Gone With The Wind. Pee Wee Herman, portrayed by Senior David Wallace, was one of the more popular movie stars this past year. Wearing his western shirt, Carl Hennings reminds one of “Howdy Doody, " the star of a classic television series from the 50 s.

It’s the first guest of the evening. All of your close friends are gathering at your house for a game of Pictionary, the latest rage in group entertainment. The stereo is blast- ing with the top ten song, “Push It ,” and bowls of Dori- tos, chips, and popcorn are placed everywhere. All are eating, laughing, and enjoying each other’s company while the drawer is going bizerk trying to make his teammate guess his drawing as the time dwindles down quickly. But Pictionary parties are only the beginning. Stu- dents also love going to the movies, eating at McDon- ald’s, hanging out at the Southlake Mall, and of course, participating in the traditional school events. Kristin Baker and the others were not hesitant in showing their spirit Starting the new tradition of “Mr. In- during the bonfire. got Spirit” was Alex Cajigas. TIME FOR A PICTIONARY PARTY! CLASSIC GET-TOGETHERS CHANGE FROM “EVERYONE AT ARNOLD’S” TO ‘‘EVERYONE AT MY HOUSE” CLASSIC EVENTS 7 Classic Clothes: A M any of the 50’s styles influenced the fashions of students in the late 80’s. To- day’s classic clothes ran in a wide range, from leather jackets and blue jeans to bobbie socks and tight skirts. The hot fashions of today include “Guess,” “I.O.U.,” “Prezzia Italia,” “Italian Boys,” “U- Men, ” “Camp Beverly Hills, ’’and many other prod- ucts. They will most likely be “Classic Clothes” in the future just like some clothes are classics now. The old “new” styles of today will soon be the “classic,” hot fashions of tomorrow. 8 OPENING Modeling contemporary formal wear, Angel Cruz looks comfortable in his grey knit suit, while Doug Funes feels very confident in his black wing-tipped tux. Fashionable looks usually run in a family. Here Michelle Munoz is adorned in the latest styles from " Prezzia Ita- lia " while her brother, Frank Munoz, in the latest popu- lar colors, grey and black, wears " Guess " jeans and a grey knit sweater with red accents to match.

Throughout the years many places around the school have be- come “hangouts” for different groups of people. Even during all of the remodeling and changes this year, those “hangouts” have typi- cally remained the same. There are traditional places in the school for students to “do their thing,” whether it’s visiting with friends, sitting and relaxing, being alone with that special someone, or just hanging around. There are, however, places where certain people wouldn’t dare hangout. For example, everybody knows that the bench outside the gym is generally reserved for Se- niors and maybe a few lucky Ju- niors. If you’re a Freshman, you just wouldn’t dare sit there, not willingly, anyway. Likewise, if you’re a Junior or Senior you prob- ably wouldn’t hang around outside the Guidance Offices or sit outside your next hour class with all your books. These are typical locations for most underclassmen. For everyone there’s the gym. It’s a place where one can usually find Seventh Graders to Seniors. In the gym are the jocks, who are almost always present during their lunch hour, and the lovesick girls who follow the jocks around. The remaining gym population can be divided into two groups. There are those who just want to blow off steam after making it through half the day, and then there are those who are there gathering courage and strength to finish the day. In addition to these locations, the cafeteria remains a popular place where students congregate and discuss the latest gossip or catch up on homework, and the li- brary still offers a tranquil setting where students can study, do re- search, or just find a little privacy. Spencer Newlin, Lianne Hoeffiicker, and Doug Funes help Dave Ratliff see the new lobby from a “different” perspective. Adam Sech and Pixie Norman enjoy a quiet moment by their lockers between classes. OPENING 11 These members of the Home- coming court anxiously await Senior Spencer Newlin cheers on the announcement of the win- during the bonfire, just one of the net. Homecoming festivities.

On Friday, September 24 the Varsity Football team kicked off their fifth game of the season. It w as not just another game, it was Homecoming. Hundreds of students, parents, and fans came to cheer the Ingots on; unfortunately, the Ingots lost 33-7. Senior Co-Captain, Dan Quick, was voted Mr. Football by his teammates and coaches. Martha Najib was honored as the 1987 Homecoming Queen. Other members of the Homecoming Court were Jessica Vallejo, Andrea Fields, Carmen Tellez, Lianne Hoefflicker, and Judy Clark. Stacey Lemley, a Homecoming repre- sentative of the sophomore class, made a surprise appearance after having major surgery. Although she was unable to leave the car, many friends were hapy to see her wel. The week long celebration was high- lighted by the Senior Class winning the hall decorating competition. The Freshmen Class won the float competition. Dressed in fine attire Homecom- ing Queen Martha Najib and her escort Bryan Baker smile happily. HOMECOMING 13 Spirits run high As new title is added Basketball Homecom- ing, 1988, although it was not a night of vic- tory, it was a night to begin new traditions and a night to carry on the old. The excitement began with the annual pre-game festivities by having the students dress up for the ever popular Spirit Week. Themes for the week in- cluded Punk day, Hawai- ian day, Dress Up day, and Red and Gold day. At the end of Spirit Week each class competed in hall decorating. The theme was " Ban the Bom- bers. " With only one point Alex Cajigas receives a Silver Ingot after being named the first Mr. Ingot Spirit in the school’s history. separating first from sec- ond place in the decora- tion competition, the Freshmen won first; the Juniors, second; the Soph- omores, third; and, the Seniors, fourth. On the day of the big game all High School and Junior High students filed into the gym for the pre- game pep session. During the rally the students watched as Dr. Wright and Mr. Detterline had a three point shooting contest. There was also a free throw contest between the best shooters from the Varsity and Jr. Varsity Basketball teams. Mr. Det- terline was the champion three point shooter and Brian Hoobyar of the J.V. team was the free-throw champion. Among other activities, a pie eating contest was held between the classes. Two members from each class were chosen to be the eaters, and six Varsity and J.V. cheerleaders were the honorary “feeders”. The spirit carried over to the big game against the Renssalear Bombers. Al- though the game wasn’t a victory, the Ingots played well. During halftime Alex Cajigas received the newly added title of Mr. Ingot Spirit and the naming of Miss Ingot Spirit, Miss Basketball, and Mr. Bas- ketball took place. The winners for 1988 were: Jessica Vallejo, Miss Ingot Spirit; P.J. Wiggins, Miss Basketball; and Butch Fis- cher, Mr. Basketball.

A Valentine Masquerade Sets The Scene For A Romantic Turnabout. For the first time, I slow danced and kissed my date ... Spending it with the guy of my dreams, riding in a limo, and getting treated like a queen . . . After Turnabout . . . Being with the one I love ... Going solo . . . The punch . . . Putting up the decorations Singing “Always” on the dance floor . . . The smoke on the dance floor . . . Seeing Mr. Tippett dancing. As the mist filled the dark room, and romance filled the air, the Valentine masquerade was an entertaining event for 101 couples. It proved to be one of the most succesful dances in the his- tory of River Forest; the Senior class made $1000.00. With music by D.J. Mike Ni- loff, the strobe lit dance floor was constantly occupied. Mr. Tippett even rocked the night away along with sponsors Mr. Rex Brown and Mr. Robert Grenert. Decorated with beautiful masks, the dull Ingot room was transformed into a beautiful ball room. Surrounding the couples for pictures was a giant heart made of balloons. The pictures were taken by Midstates Photog- raphy. With each picture taken, a small instant photograph was offered for $4.00. After the couples finished tak- ing their pictures, they then got a chance to admire the beautiful decorations that the Senior Turnabout Committee along with Mr. Brown, spent hours working on. “Mr. Brown did most of the designing,” said Shawn Davis, Senior Class Pres- ident, and “We had the task of putting it all together!” When 11 o’clock came around and the crowd started to dwindle down, and eventually fade away. By 12 o’clock the only thing left of the 1988 turnabout was a few decorations half torn off the wall, and some memories that will last a lifetime.

Held in the Ju- nior High gymnasium, it gives people a look at the beginnings of Christ- mas spirit, tradition, and celebration. Dressed in medieval costume, the high school choir entertains the audi- ence with an evening of varied songs including “Welcome Every Guest’’, “Gather Around the Christmas Tree”, and “The Boar’s Head’’, numerous dances, and delicious food. The main course, Swiss Steak with mushrooms and Baby Snapp peas, was highlighted by many hors d’oeuvr es and a dessert course containing numer- ous torts and pastries in- cluding desserts from a chef in St. Louis. Other special features of the Wassail included ap- pearances of Christmas heroins, Santa Lucia and Jeanette Isabella, por- trayed by Chris Ast and Gale Cecil, folk and coun- try dances, and the puppet show performed by Miss Kubiak’s Seventh Grade English class.

KING AND QUEEN 21 The “Witching Hour ” came late to River Forest this Halloween. Familiar figures from past eras including Dorothy and her friends from the Land of Oz and Dracula from Transylva- nia mingled with many of the latest stars like Jason from “Friday the 13th.” Even though the Hallow- een Dance was delayed, it had a large turnout. Approx- imately one-hundred fifty people attended the dance which was another opportu- nity for students to socialize with their friends and do a little monster mashing. The dance was sponsored by the Student Council and was held in the Ingot Room. The evening was highlighted by a costume judging contest which resulted in several winners. Mr. Tippett felt that there were too many spec- tacular costumes to pick just one winner in each of the three judged areas: weirdest, most original, and cutest. Approximately three to four winners in each catagory were picked. Music was furnished by D.J. Mike Niloff who spun many of the hottest new tunes from artists such as George Michael, Debbie Gib- son, and Tiffini. Miss Waluk, the new spon- sor of Student Council, said that the students had a " spirited” time while danc- ing to they’re favorite songs, chatting with friends, en- joying refreshments, and of course, taking part in the costume contest. Some of the winning cos- tumes for the girls included old women costumes worn by Donna Collins and Jen- ella Norman, a geisha girl outfit worn by Marija Watts, and a Raggedy Ann costume worn by Gail Cecil. For the boys Anthony Alfono won with a scarecrow outfit and Jeff Holder won as a hoola girl.

HALLOWEEN 23 Dreams of Romance All of the decorations, the pink and purple bal- loons, streamers, and the very beautifully decorated twinkling suspension bridge were carefully assem- bled by the Juniors and Class Sponsors, Miss Wat- kins and Mrs. McNabb, to set a most romantic at- mosphere especially for prom goers Lianne Hoef- flicker, Robin Dotlich, Steve Crum and Bob Pearman. Tracy Pavy shows off her date Dan by saying, “checkout this smile!” Jeff Muha and his date, Me- gan, take a break from dancing to enjoy each others company. Tami Palmer and Jason Trusty enjoy a fun- filled night of dancing and romance. T he Saxon Hall in Merrillville was the scene of a most fes- tive event on May 7, the Junior-Senior Prom. Couples sporting tails and top hats and large- hooped dresses and par- isols attended this annu- al event. Excitement floated through the air that night amid pink, purple and silver decora- tions which conveyed the theme, “Dreams of Ro- mance.” Glassware, napkins, and booklets were the keepsakes of this gala affair. “Boogie Jack” spun a fantasy for the dreamers with the latest hits of Whitney Houston, Debbie Gibson, George Michael, and Mi- ami Sound Machine, as well as with classic songs such as the very famous “Mony Mony” by Tom- my James and the Shon- dells. The prom guests refreshed themselves with cookies, punch and Hors d’oeuvres. Along with the keepsakes and cherished memories of the special evening, the guests were photogra- phed by Midstates Pho- tography. Much effort was given by the Junior Class and by the Class Sponsors, Miss Terry Watkins and Mrs. Pat McNabb to make the 1988 Prom one of the most enjoyable and successful ever. 24 PROM . . . a festive night filled with enchantment Jerry Crane and Wendy Phelps take time out from their friends to spend a slow dance together.

PROM 25 26 PEOPLE S tudents at River Forest consider R.F. to be a home away from home, or a second home with a second family. They spend over 7 hours a day, 5 days a week here for 9 months out of the year. This is, for many, more time than that which is spent at home. “Many times I’d spend over 14 hours a day at school, having track practice before school, and working to prepare decorations for the halls after school,” said Sherry Daniel, adding, “Mom asked once if I just slept at home and lived at school!” Many student’s feel that R.F. is like their second family with Mr. Tippett as the father, and many teachers as advice givers. “I could always turn to Mr. Tippett for good advice whenever I needed it,” said Senior Patricia White. When one steps foot into the halls each morning, he’s bound to see many smiling faces and say “Hi” whether he really know’s someone well or not because the school radiates a homey feeling. The high school is one place where a student doesn’t need to worry about feeling out of place.

Consultant Denise Jamerson O ur faculty likes a challenge. They are willing to listen when students have problems with school work or their personal lives. The teachers pose as excellent role models to help guide the students. Not only do they teach their sub- jects, but they also conduct extra- curricular activities that help to rein- force the subject and values taught during the school day.

As the High School building was being constructed, Miss Major was escorted down the steel beams and was shown the area of her class- room, a location where she would re- main teaching for over 30 years.

They are a unique group of dedicated in- dividuals who stick together when the going gets tough. And tough it was. The teachers had to not only cope with the pains of remodeling, but also with numerous changes in teaching assignments. 4 cUpUac4fruitio i 30 ADMINISTRA TION i cCmiai fruUca i Eileen Paradine Fay Iorio Counselor Main Office Secretary Barbara Grusak School Treasurer Rachel Nicoloff Guidance Secretary Bill Logan-Athletic Director The members of the school board lor the 1988 school year were: Secretary Betty Jonaitis, Mem- ber JoEllen Breese, Superintendent Peggy Chnupa, President Herbert Warren, Vice-Presi- dent Geraldine Petruska, and Member Robert Craigin.

Mr. Kasper was “not only a business associate, but also a friend,” said Superintendent Peggy Chnupa. Mr. Kasper, age 73, was hospitalized for a lengthy illness at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Ho- bart prior to his death. When the school board was orga- nized in 1975, Mr. Kasper was one of the original members. As President of the school board, one of Mr. Kasper’s goals was to see the newly remodeled school. “If he were with us now, he would be ex- tremely proud,” said Superinten- dent Peggy Chnupa, who added, “Mr. Kasper will surely be missed by the students, the School Board and the community.” Head Principal Donald Tippett Seniors just wanna have fun: In the front row.

Many excited students find Friday night football or basketball games an enjoyable way to begin their week- end leisure. Whether it’s a win or a loss, their spirits are usually high as the Seniors leave the school after the game to “pig out” on pizza and Coke at Pizza Hut on Route 6. On special Friday nights between the game ai d “pigging out”, if the Seniors are really lucky, they 11 boogie down at one of the frequently-held Ingot dances! Joe McWhirter, along with many others, struggled to keep his “head togeth- er”. Dan Rosado, Class of 1988 Valedictorian, smiles as he relaxes on the handrail before having to return to his sixth hour Spanish class. With his feet resting on Miss. Sappers desk while she isn 7 in the room, is Chris Childs, who ranks third in the class of 88. The top ten students of the Senior Class don’t just work . . . es. It’s a proven fact! A large number of students excelled in acedemics not in extra-curric- but also held down jotfs. Some students said that their job or after school ac- tivities weren’t too hard to bal- ance with school work because they were a break from their studies. “You have to make sure you don’t get too involved with extra activities,” warned Pam Baker, “because then you could get caught in a bind that’s hard to get out of.” “Having outside ac- tivities and keeping your grades up is just a matter of balancing time,” said top student Dan Ro- sado, who continued, “I allot about a half an hour after school to relax and get something to eat, then I get all my homework out of the way so I can practice my horn ’til my mother says that she’s tired of listening to me!” 36 TOP TEN It started out with S.T.P. courses in 8th and 9th grade, and from that point on I kept up with my school courses. 5. “PcuticiA ‘Safa I had always hoped to be the Valedictori- an, but after my Sophomore year, I fig- ured that it probably wouldn’t happen so I just tried my best to be in the top ten. 6.

As re- ality sets in, the realiza- tion hits that the week- end, which seems like it just started, is already over. As usual on Mondays students seem to run ca- sually late and with a tardy comes the infa- mous blue tardy slip. It’s only Monday and you’re already one step closer to giving up your next Saturday for de- tention. What was fun times only a day ago, seems like years past. 76e D. Wilson obviously feels the strain of returning to school from a ‘ ‘ wild ’ ' week- end. Perhaps Tuesday is a little more happening than Monday, but not by much. Everything is still running slowly. Sitting not quite com- fortably on the hard wooden desks, students eyelids slowly start to fall and the teacher’s voice becomes a slight tremor in the distance. Suddenly, you hear the loud ringing of the bell that welcomes you back to reality and you strug- gle to find the energy to wander to the next class. John Propeck is ready to build a new foundation for learning. TYPICAL TUESDA Y By the time Wednes- day rolls around, stu- dents are getting tired of the “old routine” and are thinking about more stimulating things. It’s daring, but by the middle of the week stu- dents can’t help but look for excitement. Class clowns always seem to help the day go by more quickly. On Wednesdays stu- dents have found some energy, but unfortu- nately that energy is sometimes focused in the wrong direction. Chris Childs smiles as he takes time out from working in Mrs. Turpin’s Spanish 2 Class. WORKING WEDNESDA Y pet 40 SENIORS THURSDA Y: CLOSE Angel Cruz sneaks a bag of cheelos af- ter taking a test outside of English Class. Excitement among the students begins to build in the hallways as plans for the weekend are starting to be made. Only one day (Friday) stands between them and the weekend. It’s a day to put school work in the back of the mind and bring the weekend plans to the forefront. Unfortunately, though, Thursday is usually the day tests are assigned and somehow keeping one’s mind on studying with the weekend loom- ing on the horizon just isn’t an easy thing to do. FRIDA Y! T.G.I.F On a typical Friday, David Wallace downs around as usual. What a wild day! An- ticipation and frustra- tion are at their peak because the day just can’t go fast enough. It seems that each 50 min- ute period lasts for 5 hours. On Friday, usu- ally without doubt, there are units to finish, papers to turn in, tests to take and unfortu- nately little enthusia- sum left to perform with. Ironically though, when the last bell rings, and the last book is closed, the doors some- how explode with stu- dents full of new found energy. and Seniors are always ready to take time out for the weekend. WEEKENDS WERE MADE FOR FUN! Time for students to cut back and hang loose. All that is to be thought about is FUN, FUN, FUN! School is a 4-letter word for stu- dents on the weekends. No Algebra, no English, no Government, and no Economics! On the weekend, R.F. students may be found anywhere from the Game Room, to cruising Broadway, to a local party, or the new hot dance place, “Down in the Alley.” No matter where they are, you can be sure they’re having fun!

J ust when the snow starts to melt, and the sun stays out just a lit- tle longer, R.F. Seniors start to get a little jumpy. “Let’s go to the beach!,” yells Cindy to a group of friends as they all start to laugh and say, “Wouldn’t that be GREAT!” Seniors just can’t wait ’till the time comes to wear their swim- ming trunks or bikinis out on the beach again. But maybe, just maybe, its not wearing these swimsuits that they can’t wait for, it’s seeing the suits on other people!

For example, a spirited student may have his locker decorated with the school colors of gold and cardinal. Another student might have a love for certain Movie-Stars and have several pictures pinned all through the locker. Patricia White, for example, showed her love for her family by adorning her locker with pictures of her niece and nephews who live in California. Doug Funes and Gale Cecil shows their locker personalities. u CAN’T B SERIOUS? W hat are the River Forest students saying today?

HAVING A CLASSIC TIME “To Follow Your Dream” If you have a dream, don’t let it go; Don’t forget it, just reach for your goal. No matter what people might tell you. No matter what they will say; If it is your dream, don’t let it stray. Practice makes perfect, it’s all up to you; There’s nothing that anyone can do, except you. Through hardship or turmoil. Through times that are rough; Only you can acheive it, if you can stay tough. So no matter how far away Your accomplishment may seem; If you want it enough. Just follow your dream.

Time and time again throughout the year they really gave it their all. With Tony Lyons-president, Bishop Christensen-vice-presi- dent, Lisa Remus-seceratary, and Maria Fuentes-treasurer they pulled the class together and organized the spirit. The of- ficers decided who would work concession stands at football and basketball games, and they organized people to help deco- rate halls during homcoming.

Becoming a Senior, ruling the school, and having a color picture in the yearbook. Everyone looks up to a Se- nior and a Senior can look down on everyone else. When you’re a Junior, you’re at the point where you have just about had enough of the name call- ing such as “low life” or “dumb little underclass- man.” One saving factor is that as a Junior you still have two-thirds of the school beneath you. Jun- iors have that extra little freedom and responsibil- ity that other underclass- men don’t have. By the time you are a Junior, you have learned the ropes. You know what you can do, or should we say, what you can get away with. The only thing you can’t get away with is putting down a Senior. A group of smiling Juniors are anticipating their Senior year.

Now, in the fresh- men year, it’s time to leave im- maturity behind; but in doing so some of their memorable moments were created. Remember when. All the basketball players lock- ers were T.P. ’d. J. H. ’s shorts were pulled down in gym class. S. D. got stuck on the elevator on the STP trip. M.D. forgot his basketball uni- form his shoes at an away game. F.D. had to clean the hallway for a week for eating in them. R.C. had to wash the lockers for writing on a desk. K. B. had a food fight and was caught by Mr. Tippett who made her wash all the walls in the cafeteria. 60 FRESHMEN Robert Evans Mari Ewell Pamela Feldpausch Tammy Fields Daniel Filla Arturo Fuentes Barbara Garrison Scott Garrison Nathaniel Gaska Pamela Gonzales James Fland Stacy Handley Kimberly Harper Carl Hennings Jeffery Henson Arlene Hernandez Melissa Howell Christina Hurley Shelly Ingram Keith Jackson Brian Kaehler Sean Klagstad Michael Kolesiak Johnny Kyncy Heather Lentner Sandy Liepe Geraldo Lopez Cathy Magana Jennifer Majka Jessie Majka Far left: All-pro Phil Nafus takes careful aim on his free throw.

You are expected to act like an adult. Classes become harder and homework takes more time. The jokes and “irresponsible” days of the Junior High are but a memory. Relationships have much more meaning as your friendsh- ips deepen. You look foward to dating and spending more time with your friends. Job opportunities become more frequent and extra curric- ular activities begin to take up more of your free time. There are also more dances and games to enjoy; opportunities to join clubs and to be involved in student government activities increase.

T he Seventh Grade class has started another generation of INGOTS. This new genera- tion, coming from three elemen- taries. River Forest, Miester, and Evans, has added 132 students to the population of RF. These new Ingots do not have an easy job ahead of them. Not only do they have the problems of adjusting to seven classes a day and a mirage of new faces, they have the extra pressure of living up or down the reputation that has already been estab- lished by former classes. Seventh graders gather as they show their Ingot spirit.

Looking Good And Getting Better 74 SEVENTH Straight from the Heart W hat’s the one thing ev- eryone has experienced at least once in their school ca- reer? PUPPY LOVE! This is es- pecially true in the Junior High. Puppy Love can be an exciting new feeling for some and a both- ersome annoyance for others. You may have been bitten by the “puppy” of love if you answer ’yes’ to any of the following: 1. Do you often find yourself going out of your way to be in the way of a certain person? 2. Have you ever been afraid to leave home fearing that a cer- tain someone may call just as you leave? 3. Do you often get caught writing notes that you’re too em- barassed to send? Remember - once the puppy of love has bitten, you’ll never be free of love again.

Different interests promote different clubs. For example, some students enjoy competing in the academic decathalon, a competition which gives students a chance to enhance and dem- onstrate their abilities, while others may enjoy participation in organizations such as the Future Homemakers of America. Par- ticipants in FHA stay after school and help one another prepare for the future, but they also plan varied student activities. Band class, another extra-curricular activity, requires many hours of out of school practice. During football season every morning at 6:45 the members of the marching band will be found out on the practice field rehearsing their half-time show. Throughout basketball season the pep band members volunteer time to prac- tice and perform for Varsity home games. Even though clubs aren’t for everybody, they help many students with varied interests become and remain involved with school. Glenn Evans. Joe Learman, Jenny Kanizar.

The High School and Jr. High Student Councils made many exceptional contributions to the spir- it of River Forest. The Jr. High, un- der Miss Kubiak’s guidance, spon- sored many activities including the Jump-A-Thon which raised money for the American Heart Association and the King and Queen Dance. The High School, advised by Miss Wa- luk, sponsored numerous school functions including the Football and Basketball Homecomings, Spring Fling, and a jewelery fundraiser. The Honor Societies with Junior High sponsor Miss Ford, and High School sponsors Mrs. Hooks and Mr. Grenert, among other projects held a candy fundraiser and a trip to Great America. The Academic Decathalon team, also sponsored by Mrs. Hooks and Mr. Grenert, competed at Purdue Calumet against much larger schools including Hobart, Merrilli- ville, and Andrean.

One of the largest and most active organizations is the FHA sponsored by Miss Hayden. Mem- bers of the Future Homemakers of America work together to hold many annual activities including the ever popular Spook House, the Ice Cream Sale and the Big Sister pro- gram. Other organizations promoting team work are YACS, FCA, and Speech Club. The YACS, under the guidance of Mrs. Broda, not only planned all school lunches but held dances and contests in the cafeteria to entertain the lunch room crowds. The FCA, supervised by Miss Jo- seph, held regular meetings and sponsored a Faculty vs Seniors and an Alumni basketball game.

Journalism classes keep moving on I f the Journalism classes had to be described, “On the Move” would certainly fit the bill. After years of being housed in room 2, the publica- tion’s offices were relocated to t he old A V room next to the library and this move became the precursor of many moves to follow. After weeks of moving boxes, organizing shelves, and getting most everything in or- der, disaster struck. The roof gave way and a deluge of water forced all of the once organized materials back in boxes and piled on tables. But that was just the beginning. A broken water heater flooded the dark room as negatives floated away and computer programs stopped functioning from the humid conditions. These troublesome complications combined with many inexperienced staff members succeeded in making a very difficult year for both the newspaper and the yearbook clas- ses. But all of the frustration was secondary to not only the achieve- ment, but also the fun in overcoming the obstacles. Both staffs endeav- ored to fulfill all deadlines and raise the quality of their publications to a higher standard. This is where it all begins 82 CLUBS CL ASSESS Above: Corie Childs, a first year staff mem- ber, enjoys the creative part of her work as she writes a story for her layout.

Little did they know that they would not only receive a perfect score from a judge who never gave a perfect score all day, but also re- ceive the highest rating in the Northern Region. “The main thing,’’ Director Slater Jazz Band said, “is to have fun and play the best you can.” That advice paid off. All three judges gave the band perfect scores in the Jazz Excitement category.

Gary Kuechenburg, a gradu- ate of River Forest, attended VanderCook College of Music and is now the head band direc- tor at North Judson San Pierre High School. As an attempt to help expand the North Judson band program, Mr. Kuechen- burg invited the RF Band to share in the pre-game show per- formance.

There were numerous changes that contributed to the new 'classic'look. Certain areas of the school were renovated, while other areas were simply repaired. Classes were moved to new locations of the school, and the troublesome leaky roof was repaired. The high school gym lobby was remodeled. carpeted, and affecionately labeled the “Amtrak Station.” Also remodeled were the bath-roooms in the lobby area and the gym floor. Some other renovations planned in 1988 were a new junior high gymnasium, and the remodeling of Science and Home Ec classrooms. the business lab. typing classrooms. Jr. and Sr. High computer labs, and the Junior High guidance office. “classy” look. Some of these long awaited changes were not made without a long unwanted delay. The arrival of mismatched patterns of carpeting. painted instead of polished toilets. the replacement of proper insulation in pipes, and the replacement of wooden beams that support the roof all led to delayed contruction. When the remodeling of the gym lobby was finally completed, the Hobart Township School Board Members gathered in a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially dedicate the new look of River Forest.TOP TEN SINGLES OF 1987 1.

By Dina Petroff INGOT TODAY If you're planning to attend college, you probably have dreams of what it will be like: interesting classes, new friends, an exciting social life, and a great start on your future. But along with dreams comes reality. Total yearly costs now average $6,000 for public colleges and universities with private institutions costing anywhere from $12,000 to $16,000 a year for tuition. fees, books, and room and board. The more commonly attended colleges of River Forest students include: Indiana University Northwest. Indiana University Bloomington. Purdue Calumet. Purdue Lafayette. Indiana State University. and Ball State University. The majority of River Forest graduates are college bound. Many know exactly what their goals are and have decided on their specific majors in college. Others, on the other hand, are unsure on what interests they wish to pursue and therefore take the popular liberal arts classes to help them decide on their major. It’s not just a job. it’s our adventure. Seniors make decision to join U.S. Armed Forces. FOR HOME DELIVERY___Contact your nearest Ingot Today Statt MemberS INGOT TODAY MONEY INGOT TODAY 1987-1988 How students spend money By Shawn Davis INGOT TODAY Money. Money is an object that no one can get enough of; you always seem to want more. If you think you have enough, it usually turns out that you’re short a few bucks. Many teenagers have good paying jobs, but seldom have many bills to pay. This leaves an excess amont of funds on hand. On the other hand, students who do work and have bills to pay find themselves continually short of funds. Students today spend money in many different places whether it be at a mall, a department store, an arcade, or most commonly. a service station. There’s always a way to get rid of the excess money. The social expenses, dating, going to the movies, and eating out. all take considerable J.T. Poll Students who work. Can they make the grade? GET PREPARED TIME TO GET A JOB STORY BELOW Do you find it hard to keep a job and also maintain high grades during school? Yes. because I took hard classes and the homework is tremendous. Adam Sech No. I find it easy to keep my grades up and work because I have good classes. Patrick Knox 'I Randy Warren No, because the homework was easy and I found time to do the work at school. Students ask: “What’s the Right Price to pay' By Dina Petroff INGOT TODAY r?” Although many teenagers don’t realize it. the American economy plays an important role in their high school lives. From clothes to cars, inflation has affected many different consumer industries. The average high school students with limited spending power are especially affected by the ever-changing economy and prices which ultimately influence their styles and tastes. Some common items and their prices for 1987-88 include:money. And. if the teen has a car. then his cost of living is even higher. Automobile maintenance and insurance digs deeply into a teen’s paycheck. There is no such thing as excess money for most students. If a teenager can make enough to provide him the “necessities’’ in life without digging into his parents pockets time and again, he’s a lucky teen indeed. With so few places to make it and too many places to spend it. excess money would be a luxury for any teen. Usually going from payday to payday with money left over is difficult if not impossible. RFHS SNAPSHOTS Money is one of the most basic necessities in a student '$ High School career.

First Job Experiences Students work at variety of jobs by Shawn Davis INGOT TODAY ZZZZZZZ!! You slam your hand down onto the alarm clock. You glance over to see what time it is. 6:00. Why in the world would you want to set the alarm clock for so early in the morning? Then you remember. you have to go to work this morning. For many teenagers working is a way of life on the weekends. Several students start their job experience in a fast food establishment or a restaurant as a cook or bus boy. The wages are usually low (sometimes under $3.35) and the work is hard. Other common places for first time jobs are: Grocery stores, working as baggers and stockers; department stores, working as clerks; or corn detassil-ing, a summer job offered to students through some of the faculty members. Wages for these jobs are approximately $3.35 to $4.00 hr. Working after school, on weekends, and during the summer helps students learn responsibility. They must learn to manage extra time wisely between homework and extracurricular activities. 1. can of pop .60 2. candy bar .50 3. pack of gum .35 4. school lunch 1.05 5. cassettes 8.00 6.

After making these decisions. the next question is. “Can I pay for it?”. The average teen makes from $2.95 to $4.00 an hour, which doesn't leave much money for extra activities such as dating and eating out. Movie Theater: (Indoor) Tickets - $5.00 ea.

Where to shop is the most common problem faced by teenagers today, besides what color clothes go well with their eyes.

You can go to the mall, the arcade at Camelot Bowl, Wally's Game Room, or Schoop’s. At the mall, you can look for a new outfit, or just check out the girls (or guys). The mall is always a good time and usually a great place to meet new people. Camelot Lanes in Portage is alsofrom. Some of the more popular ones for students with extra dollars in their pockets include the Merry-go-Round. The Limited, and the Oak Tree. For people on a tight budget there’s Stuarts. Lerners. and The Lark. No matter what the store, finding that perfect purchase may be a little frustrating, but it’s always fun. This is true even though sometimes some people find going from store to store looking around more pleasurable than actually departing with their money.

The Who, the What, and the Wear FASHIONS THAT MADE 1987-88 By Dina Petroff INGOT TODAY As Seventh Graders come and Seniors leave, the same goes for fads and fashion. When Seniors graduate, they leave not only memories of their life, but also a distinct mark on the fashion scene. Many trends in fashion exploded during the 1987-88 school year. One of the most notable trends was the return of the classic miniskirt which was a big fashion statement for the I960's and the I970’s. For the guys as well as girls, there were frosted, acid, snow and white washed jeans, shirts, and denim jackets. Other popular trends included the “anything-goes” hairstyles, fashion watches. Reeboks. and fashion sweatshirts. Sweatsuits, and unlaced hightops were the “cool” look for the Junior High. The desirable names in fashion were Guess?. IOU. Swatch. Forenza. Ocean Pacific. Bugleboy, Espirit, Generra. and Benetton. The fashion trends of today will no doubt be the classic examples of tomorrow. you don't like to bowl, the arcade there has many games, ranging from the classic “Pole Position” to the new ”Afterburner.” Students from all over the area converge at Wally's Game Room every Saturday.

By Bill Buchanan INGOT TODAY Wearing the right type of cologne had much to do with being in style. Students were willing to pay outrageous prices for the ‘in’ fragrance regardless of the number of ounces. Polo. Obsession. Grey Flannel. and Lagerfield were a few of the colognes for the men. These fragrances averaged from $18.50 to $30.00. A four ounce bottle of Polo, for example, costs around $20.00. The ladies, too. were willing to pay high prices, for the ‘desirable’ fragrance. Poison, Opium. Obsession and Lauren were the ‘in’ perfumes. Like the mens’ fragrances, these ranged from approximately $20 on up.

Senior memories will last a lifetime by Bill Buchanan INGOT TODAY The hardest thing for a athlete to do is leave at the end of the year. Of course he she is happy to get their year completed, but deep down inside they are really going to miss the practices and the games that have been played throughout the whole season. This is especially hard for the members of the numerous sports teams that R.F. offers. During football season they can’t wait to get their first victory under their belt, but when the last game comes rolling around it seems to go by so fast. In (Cross Country). Pete Otero (Football).

The golf team posted a 12-1 season record which bested the school record set 11 years ago in 1977. Senior Brian Baker highlighted the golf team’s season by qualifying for Kegionals his second consecutive time. Bryan qualified with a score of 86. Senior Alicia Price, who qualified for Regionals with her dash times, along with Seniors Martha Najib, P.J. Wiggins, and Andrea Fields, led the girl's track team to a Northwest Hoosier Conference title. The boy’s track season was highlighted by Joe Liberto earning conference honors for the high jump and by the team hosting a major invitational meet at Lake Station. The Varsity Baseball team finished second in conference and used the year as a stepping stone for change. The team finished the season with a 10-16-1 record. fact it goes by so fast that before they know it the other sports have already begun. The Cross Country team also falls victim to the feeling of helplessness once the season is over. They too can’t wait for their first meet, but when the last meet is over it finally dawns that the season is over. The same feeling occurs for the members on the basketball, baseball, and track teams. Seniors are traditionally leaders of the team and as the leaders they have a responsibility. This responsibility is then passed on to the next years’ seniors. When you as a freshman joined a sport, the seniors were the one whom you looked up to.

Sports are a way to show ones self determination and dedication through hard work and competition. Sports offer an opportunity for Ingots to stand above the rest. They involve much more than physical activity. Tears, pain, sweat, disappointment, and excitement are all included. Most Valuable Player, All Conference, State Conference, and Honor- able Mention were honors earned by many of our players. Throughout the season, victories came often for many of our younger teams, while for other teams perseverance, drive, and hard work became their victory symbols. For the track teams it was a difficult year. Due to the renova- tions of the home track and fields, all of the track meets were scheduled away. Mounds of sand and gravel filled their practice areas, but the thoughts for those returning of coming back in the Fall to new facilities more than off set their inconvience. Before the bonfire the mighty Ingot football players rode on a fire truck in the small New Chicago Homecoming Parade. The roars and cheers of students can be heard throughout the town.

The ball went up, and hearts sank when it came down out of range. “They played exciting foot- ball, but lacked intensity at practice,” Coach Dennis Leon- ard commented.

Due to the players past expe- rience, the tennis team said Coach Detterline had a good season. Each player had at least two years experience. Coach Detterline added that many players had excellent seasons, and naming only one individual as an MVP would be very difficult. However, Juniors Matt Schuffert and Terry Wil- cox probably performed the best overall. “The team lost many close matches,” said Detterline.

Hard work and determi- nation are two words that can be used to describe the Cross Country team. Al- though there were major ob- stacles in their way, the team overcame them. One problem they had to face was a lack of experi- ence. A majority of the team were first year members. An- other obstacle was overcom- ing constant injuries. Many of the key runners faced in- juries throughout the sea- son. One high point for the team was when freshman Phil Nafus, who, in his sec- ond year, lettered varsity. Nafus placed fifth in the Northwest Hoosier Confer- ence and seventh in Sec- tionals which enabled him to run in the Regional com- petition.

Talent abounds on Junior High Squads as team mem- bers develop their playing potentials. Junior High DOMINA TES The Junior High basketball teams have a lot of potential. Miss Kirsits, the Eighth Grade girls’ coach, was impressed by the progression of the team which netted a season record of six wins and 3 losses. Although the Seventh Grade Boys’ Bas- ketball team ended its season with a losing re- cord of 6 wins and 7 losses, Coach Muha re- mained optimistic. The team had a lot of talent and with a few more years of experience should develop into an impressive varsity squad, said Coach Muha. Junior High potential was further evidenced in the Seventh Grade Boys’ team which completed the season with 8 wins and 5 losses. Tony Buehler and Angel Vega shared the Most Valuable Player award for the Junior High Boys’ teams. The Eighth Grade Girls ' team and Coach Kirsits anxiously watch the game.

Spirit Leaders Make a Change Every year the high school cheerleaders be- gin practice in June for the an- nual cheerlead- ing camps. The camps, which are held on col- lege campuses all over Indiana, usually last from 3 days to a week. While at camp the cheer- leaders compe te daily. At the end of their stay a fi- nal competition is held between all squads. For the 1987 sum- mer session all of the high school squads placed first in the final compe- tition. Varsity and Jr. Varsity squads work together for spirit raising year. It was a year of change for cheerleaders. Under the new leadership of first year spon- sor, science teacher, Roberta Connelly, the cheerleading squad focused its attention on promoting school spirit and revising the cheerleading constitution. One way of promoting school spirit was by having the squad members decorate the hallways and team members lockers before every game. The revision of the cheerleading consti- tution brought about many changes. One of the changes stated that the administration would be involved in major decisions along with the sponsor. Other changes placed more restrictions on the squad to promote profes- sionalism. Even with the new adjustments Miss Connelly felt that the squads demonstrated excellent effort. She said that she was greatly impressed with the dedication that each girl maintained.

We’re here and ready to back the Ingot teams. “And the most spirited award goes to . . . the Freshmen Squad from River Forest, sponsored bp Miss Roberta Conneiy.” In order to receive the “Most Spirited Award” you are required to show a great deal of enthusiasum at all times. The Freshmen squad did just that! The girls competed this year in Rensselaer at the St. Jo- seph College ASCC Sum- mer Cheerleading Camp. It was the cheerleaders first time competing as a squad. The judges scores were not based on spirit alone. Voice control, to- getherness, and distinct motions were also impor- tant factors. “The competi- tion was nerve racking,” said cheerleader Debbie Debois, but participant April Buchanan added that the skit contests were hilar- ious. According to another participant, Stacy Hand- ley, learning new dance routines was enjoyable, but the evening pizza parties were her favorite! “And, the night time slumber par- ties were simply the great- est,” said Kim Harper. 8th grade Cheerleading Squad The Freshmen Cheerleading from the top-down: S.

Breaking many records and setting goals for teams to follow , Ingots come fighting out of the batter ' s box. Numerous records were bro- ken despite the Junior Varsity and Varsity baseball seasons being considered by Coach Whiting and Coach Piper as stepping stones for future changes in River Forest’s base- ball program. “The team was inspiring,” said Head Coach Whiting. With the exception of Senior Doug Funes, all of the team members were under- classmen and will be returning next year. “What’s inspiring,” Coach Whiting said, “is that the many records which were bro- ken, were broken by the under- classmen.” Junior, Julio Con- cepcion, not only set a new re- cord for the most triples for the season but also for a career. He batted eighty-three times and hit seven triples. Junior, Jeff Muha, broke two school rec- ords. One by hitting two Grand Slams and the other by throw- ing an incredible ninety-six strikeouts. The record for most consecu- tive times on base was broken by Steve Stefanovich, who rea- ched first base ten times with six hits and four walks. Marc Buehler led the team in steals and most runs scored. Marc stole fifteen bases and led the team with twenty runs, the most runs scored by any individ- ual in one season. Marc Buehler keeps his eye on the Julio Concepcion blasts the ball pitcher as he prepares to steal another through the infield. base. 125 Awaiting a putt, Corey Perez holds the flag steady. Freshman Mike Dickson tallies up his score. Bryan Baker awaits anxiously as Shane Clay attempts to sink his putt for a birdie. 126 GOLF Many returning lettermen post low scores and earn a place in River Forest sports history. Golf team bests school record The Golf team had an im- pressive season, ending with a record of twelve wins and one loss. They bested their previous record of thirteen wins and four losses set in 1977. Five return- ing lettermen, all of whom shot low to middle forties, gave us an advantage over other teams, said Head Coach Leonard. In addition to their outstand- ing record the team finished fourth in the Northwest Hoosier Conference. Bryan Baker and Shane Clay finished sixth and ninth, respectively. Sectionals were held at Pheasant Valley where the team placed fourth, by shooting a score of 370. Al- though the team did not make Regionals, team member Bryan Baker tied for third medalist with a score of 86. This score earned him a place in Regional competition for his second con- secutive year. The team averages per nine holes were: Bryan Baker 42.3; Chris Mefford 45.3; Shane Clay 45.7; Kerry Mefford 45.8; and, Eric Yuhusz 46.7. The Athletic Booster Club named Senior Bryan Baker Most Valueable Golfer, and Ju- nior Chris Mefford Most Im- proved Golfer.

GOLF 127 Despite facing problems resulting from the remodeling of our track and field areas, the high school track teams “stood by one another” to keep spirit in high gear Strong effort keeps track teams alive Both the girls’ and boys’ high school track teams were hurt from the loss of their home track. Because of the remodel- ing, neither team could hold a home match or practice. Coach Marszalek named Rich Fasel the Most Valuable Player for his overall contribu- tion to the boys’ track team, and Joe Liberto earned confer- ence honors for his champion- ship high jumps. Despite the complication of a pulled mus- cle, Reese Price received the honor of being named Most Im- proved. Coach Joseph named Alicia Price the Most Valuable Player for her hard work and dedication. Alicia also earned a place in the regional competi- tion and was awarded a letter from Coach Joseph. Also ear- ning honors for overall excep- tional effort and performance were Martha Najib and P.J. Wiggins, who were awarded plaques, and Andrea Fields, who received a medal.

The boys’ Seventh Grade team posted a re- cord of 2 wins, 2 loses and 1 tie. “The girls did an excellent job considering that the team lost sev- eral members,” said Coach Ko- mosa. “Despite our small roster, the girls kept their heads up and did their very best.” Because there were only a handful of girls who remained on the teams, the Seventh and Eighth graders usually ran meets together. Coach Komosa said that the small numbers hurt the girls during the meet at Lake Station. Lake Station had two girls’ teams which meant our girls had to run separately. At the meet against Lake Station, two of our Ingots, Jeff Schmitt, and Mike Diaz took the lead against an Eagle arch rival. Exchanging the baton during the 400 me- ter relay are Paula House and Diana De- leon. Kevin Persley gets a head start in the 100 meter low hurdles during a co-ed meet. 130 J.H. TRACK High Track teams success! Coach Spencer and Coach McDaniel, the coaches for the boys J.H. teams, were very pleased with the outcome of their seasons. “We had several players with experience and this brought the Eighth Grade team to a good start,” said Coach McDaniel. He added that Angel Vega and Doug Wentz played well and will be ex- cellent assets to next years senior high team. According to the coaches, the Seventh Graders did very well for their first year and learned many basic and useful techniques through their prac- tices and meets.

M oney, money, money . . . there just never seems to be an end to the amount of money students need or want. Where spending is concerned, the times haven’t changed much. “Mom, can I borrow five bucks?” or “Boss, I need to work more hours.” are common teenage statements; but where does all of the money go? The advertisers represented in the following pages give a good indication. Food and clothing lead the list. From sharing a pizza and a classic coke to buying the latest styles, students have a knack for getting rid of their money. Our parents spent their money at the drive-ins and dime- stores while today’s students frequent Me Donald’s, Pizza Hut, and the mall. Students spend much time and much money at places like the mall, and usually end up spending the money that mom distinctly said not to spend. Students make up a large part of the consumer industries market. The advertisers repre- sented on the following pages depend on our students as well as others to keep their busi- nesses in operation. We de- pend on them and thank them for supporting our annual.

The old combined with the new as remodeling reshaped and refreshed. We have tried to cap- ture this mix of what is now a classic and what is destined to be- come a classic. The book begins with the lobby ribbon cutting cer- emony which marked the first completed stage of the remodeling. From there, the opening pages combine the classic styles and events of the past with those of the present. Through the annual’s sections and their pages we have used the concept of blending the memories of the present with the memories yet to be. This year has been a year of changes, and we have tried to capture in print and pictures “new” classics for generations to come. The Seniors gather once more to say their final farewell! From top: P.
