" c. iJ? - ' " T 1969 HILLTOPPER Thomas Carr Howe High School Indianapolis, Indiana Volume 28 If The Tower MM Iff Ml Ml lilHi 111 lii Ij Could Talk About Howe If the Tower could talk it would explain that in 1937 a new school was erected in Irvington, a short distance from the former Butler University campus. In honor of a previous president of the University, the building was named Thomas Carr Howe High School. When school opened in Septem- ber of 1938, Mr. Charles M. Sharp, the first principal, greeted 450 stu- dents and 16 teachers. When school opened in September of 1968, Mr. Thomas S. Stirling, who became principal in 1959, welcomed 2367 students and 126 teachers. Tower Observes Changes During School ' s History First year home economics students measure hems for their first school project. Physical education classes take advantage of the nice weather for outside activity. Looking inside to the classrooms of Howe, the Tower could speak of the many changes that have taken place in different departments of the school. Until 1940, the Foreign Language Department was part of the English Department. When Howe opened, the library contained only one book, Webster ' s Dictionary; the English Department offered three courses; and the Science Department in- cluded only biology and general science. Nearly thirteen thousand books are now housed in the library; many advanced courses are offered. Junior Mike Carter observes the artistic tech- nique of Mr. William Cunningham. mmiMmtiMmm ,M-Mi Mr. Thomas Stirling and Linda Johnson ex- hibit his paintings to the hunnanities class. Vice-principal Mr. Charles Ruschhaupt assists )oe Snodgrass and Dick Wood in the presenta- tion of a P. A. announcement. Students publicize activities during the homeroom period. Cadets and their dates enjoy a few minutes of quiet conversation at the Military Ball. Adult chaperone serves refreshments to junior boys and their dates at the Junior Prom. Junior Betty Rennard smiles happily after being crowned Football Homecoming Queen. Activities Keep Hornets At School After Classes As the faithful guardian of Howe, the Tower has watched over all its activities and functions since it came into being. If it could talk of student activities, perhaps the first thing it would explain is why its clock never keeps good time. It might also tell of one of the many senior messages that have been hung from its height. The Tower might recall the nu- merous dances and homecomings it has viewed from its strategic position above Howe. Whether a student be involved in decorating the goal posts for a football game, or serving punch at a school dance, one can be sure that the Tower is aware of all Howe " happenings. " Never does it cease its watchfulness. Private Dave Hankins serves punch to a fellow R.O.T.C. cadet at their Ball. Varsity and reserve cheerleaders decorate the goal post for a football game. Mrs. Patricia Alexander, yearbook sponsor, greets Howeites at the " Brown and Gold. " 7 Year-Round Athletics Encourage School Spirit Athletics have kept the Tower on its toes from the very beginning. Cross-country, basketball and track began in the 1939-40 seasons; foot- ball in 1943; baseball in 1948; golf in 1941; tennis in 1955; and wres- tling in 1957. While the G.A.A. has participated in Play Days for many years, the Girls Gymnastic Team formed last year, was the first organized com- petitive girls ' team. Boys and girls have brought honor to themselves and to Howe in both inter-school competition and intra- mural contests. Tim Smith practices to perfect a serve. Gymnastic team members Syndie Cherry, MariKn Duhamell, and karia Pannell practice the free exercise maneuvers that they perform v ith piano accompaniment. Capacity crowds fill the Hornet stadium to witness the football team in action. Clubs Prove Vital Asset To Classroom Learning Revelers member Norman McClain portrays Benedick in the play " Get Thee a Wife. " Cadet Captains Patti Dulin and Thomas Holman inspect Phillip Hill and Delbert Taylor prior to classroom review. Many service, interest, and hon- orary organizations have operated under the scrutiny and care of Howe ' s Tower. Numerous students participated in service projects this year. The Lettermen ' s Club took tickets at basketball games; the Student Council sponsored several after- game sock and shoe hops; and members of NHS spent many hours tutoring classmates. Other students strived to be eligible for membership in honorary organizations, includi ng Thespians, French and Spanish Honor So- cieties and Quill and Scroll. Several interest groups con- cerned with subjects ranging from homemaking to outer space were also active at Howe this year. Drum Major Gary Hill leads the band in parades and half-time shows. 10 Wfc: qTifsifeis; »ii- ife- wit.-- R.O.T.C. honor guard line up for inspection by Major Marks, U.S. 5th Army. Hornet Honess Captain and Squad Leaders are Veronika Hanneman, Paula Barnes. Julia Alexander, and Carolyn Ta lor. Underclassmen Fill Years With Fun, Concentration Freshman Dan Groene assists classmate Kathleen Hart with her book selection. Enthusiastic Howeites cheer as the footbal team scores a touchdown. Thousands of underclassmen have passed beneath Howe ' s Tower. For most their four years of study have passed very quickly. Frightened freshmen have even- tually found their way through the maze of halls and classrooms. Soph- omores have gradually acquired confidence as well as class rings. Juniors seem intent only on be- coming seniors. As the Tower has welcomed new- comers in the past, so will it con- tinue in the future. Sophomore English students listen attentive- ly as their teacher lectures. Junior Karen Oberlies enjoys the peaceful surroundings of the Hornet campus. During the homeroom period each morning, announcements are given over the P. A. After freshman homeroom business is attended to by Mr. John Ervin and Mrs. Sharon Kocpper, students use extra time to improve their grades or just to relax. 13 Senior Kathy Patrick admires an emblem on Larry Miller ' s letter sweater. Karen Petri and Don Britton, seniors, enjoy a brief conversation between classes. Soon-to-be-graduated seniors listen attentively to the philosophy of a fellow classmate as she delivers one of four traditional student addresses given at commencement. 14 Commencement Lingers In Minds Of Graduates In 1941 the Tower witnessed the graduation of the first senior class of Thomas Carr Howe High School. Since that time the Tower has ob- served many senior activities, in- cluding bicycle rides to school, the exclusive use of the Tower steps during senior week, and the annual senior play. Twenty-seven senior classes have participated in Vespers Services and have been graduated on Violet Hill. Blue, gold, and du- bonnet were the class colors se- lected in 1941. Five senior classes have chosen the colors of brown, gold, and light blue. Navy blue, light blue, and olive were picked as the class colors of 1969. Seniors bid the Tower adieu as they pass through its doors fol- lowing graduation ceremonies. Some never return again. Mr. Tom Totten super ises as senior G3r Throckmorton models the traditional mor- tarboard with the assistance ot classmates Charles Pettee and Kath Washburn. Gothic Tower Oversees Much Needed Additions One of the gymnasium entrances reveals the Gothic style used by Howe ' s designers. Part of the original Howe build- ing, the Tower has since witnessed the construction of five school additions. In 1940 the gym and locker rooms were added, a cafeteria was cre- ated in what is presently Room 17, and the first bookstore was opened in the current Senior Office. Con- struction of the R.O.T.C. rooms and the present bookstore was completed in 1955. In 1963 the cafeteria wing was built. It included a much needed auditorium, eight science labs, the science lecture room, and today ' s cafeteria. A long-awaited football stadium was added to Howe in 1965. Com- pleted this year, it contains class- rooms, locker rooms, rest-rooms and refreshment stand. A side-walk connecting the front walk and the parking lot was poured last spring. In the future the Tower will see play areas finished and possibly a new gym built. Today ' s building is only similar to the archi- tect ' s original design for Howe. Howe seems small and barren before the addition of the stadium and auditorium. The smoke- stack joins the Tower in its lonely vigil on a wintry day. M ' MteJr fferfe J ij«S,.,« 1 ,,vTO_«i «M i!i!iiiiBSSLmsiBa : when the stadium was added Howeites thought that construction was complete. This year ' s freshman class nearly doubled the senior roster. So, outgrown shops, physical education facilities, and library space wil soon force another addition. Nancy Bruner, senior, aids the To sers in- spection of the new front vsalk. After 25 years of witnessing all assembly programs, dramatic productions, and dances in the gym, Howe students now enjoy an auditorium seating 1500. 17 „« If The Tower Could Talk About Organizations . Organizations have changed as students ' interests have varied through the years. The Spanish Honor Society came into being last spring. In past years the Commer- cial Forum was replaced by the Fu- ture Business Leaders of America and the Girl Reserves, Girl Scouts, and Campfire Girls gave way to the Tri-Hi-Y group. Two parent groups, the P.T.A. and Men ' s 400 Club, are included in Hornet organizations. While interest is the only require- ment for most clubs, some have competitive try-outs, others have rigid initiation requirements.

" 20 Howeites, Guests At All Home Games Providing the spirit at football games, the enthusiasm at pep ses- sions, and the dignified atmosphere at Federal inspection were only three of the many obligations of the Howe Band. Directed by Mr. Louis McEnderfer and Drum Major Gary Hill, the musicians added much to the activities. The Girls ' Drill Team marching under their new name, the " Hornet Honeys, " executed lively routines at various Howe extra-curricular events this year. They were re- named by freshman Philip Sherrill in a school-wide contest. Mrs. Ruth Mercer again spon- sored the girls ' organization with the aid of Veronika Hannemann, team captain. For the first time this year the Band and Honeys performed in- tricate maneuvers together. Such features as a sombrero, a Spanish flea, and a Tijuana taxi that belched exhaust challenged the groups and delighted the crowd.

As a group, the choir ex- hibited its skills on radio, in school, and on the downtown Circle during Christmas under the direction of Mr. Frank Watkins. Mr. Bob Bram- blett led the Madrigals, an elite group of twenty-one. Both Girls ' and Boys ' Octets gave live perform- ances for various organizations.

Dedicated to the study of music, Mr. Frank Watkins, Music Department head, directs a church choir in addition to his school duties. A friend to all, students and adults alike, he is affectionate- ly known as " Pop. " 25 Concert Club Girls Gain As director of the girls ' chorus classes, Mr. Robert Bramblett works to prepare the novice groups for advanced music. Fifty-eight girls made up this year ' s Concert Club. Most of the girls were picked from the girl ' s chorus classes. Being a member of Howe ' s choir is the ultimate goal of most Hornet vocalists. A wide variety of music was sung including Negro spirituals and modern-day pop music. Hard work was put into the improvement of their numbers. They met with their director, Mr. Frank Watkins, every day to reach the peak of perfec- tion. After this goal was achieved, the group performed here at Howe and at other places in the com- munity. They participated in the PRV and the Music Festival as school functions. At activities out- side of school they sang at neigh- boring churches and song festivals throughout Indianapolis. Claudette Greene timidly sings a solo in chorus class. She has eager hopes of be- coming a member of next year ' s Choralaires. Marcia Thomas displays her musical abilities by presenting a solo to her fellow students as Mrs. Janet McNeill accompanies. 26 Musical Knowledge, Prepare For Choir CONCERT CLUB: front Row— Sue Evans, Sharon Brinson, Diana Harlan, Laina Chap- man, Anita Brydon, Carol Christ, Barbara Bowen, Michelle Dobbs, Susie Perkins, Betty Rennard, Janet Dunn, Christine Dwire, Peggy White.

Throughout Each Athletic Season Vivacious, athletic and spirited are just a few of the many words which can be used to describe this year ' s cheerleading squads. Last summer, seven of the varsity cheerleaders brought honor to Howe from Valparaiso ' s Cheer- leading Camp. Mary Ring, Marilyn Duhamell, Karia Pannell and Lee Denham won four first place rib- bons and one second place in their division. Three reserves, Betty Rennard, Debbie Maudlin and Susie Perkins also won four firsts and one second plus the spirit stick. This year ' s freshman squad dis- played their talents at varsity games as well as at their own. All squads combine their talents in directing the Booster Club, or- ganizing pep sessions and making spirit signs and tags.

Hilltopper Each spring tryouts for the year- book staff are held. Applicants must draw up two spreads and write the copy and captions needed for the pages. The new staff ' s first assign- ment is to organize the Turnabout Twirl. Last summer Karla Kraeszig, edi- tor-in-chief, and Janet ' Cowgill at- tended a two-week workshop at Ball State University. Plans for this book were begun during a visit to the American Yearbook Company last spring. This year ' s " Brown and Gold " dance, sponsored by the staff, played host to 550 students and had a " Roaring Twenties " theme. Members of the yearbook staff happily take time from their hectic schedule to greet their friends with smiles and shouts as they pass to their fourth hour assignments.

Tap Day, Initiation Begin NHS Activities Carl Lagenaur congratulates Pam McKim as he presents the NHS arm band to her. Newly initiated upperclassmen proudly bear the responsibility of an NHS member. Senior Jerry Stockdale was elected president of the National Honor Society this year. His cabinet included Nancy Bruner, vice- president, and KarIa Kraeszig, secretary. This organization recog- nizes the academic students of Howe. To become a member of NHS, one must be in the upper ten per cent of his junior class and the upper fifteen per cent of his senior class. He must also maintain a six point grade average. In the spring of each year, new members are added to NHS. Initiates are judged on the qualities which are the ideals of the society: character, leadership, scholarship, and service. During the week fol- lowing Tap Day, the future mem- bers wore the familiar arm bands which signified that they were soon to be accepted into the honorary organization. Members gave of their services by tutoring under- classmen. It is the goal of most Howeites to become a member of NHS. Spanish Students Join National Society Superior students enrolled in advanced Spanish last spring or- ganized the Howe chapter of the Spanish National Honor Society. It is the only such chapter func- tioning in an Indianapolis public high school. Phyllis Hawkins, senior, was elected president last fall and with the assistance of Miss Mary Thum- ma, department head, officiated at the monthly meetings. Named for the Spanish educator, Domingo Sarmiento Sautina, the club chose red and gold for its colors. This year the group visited a Spanish church. Language students enrolled in their fifth semester of Spanish study at Howe are eligible for mem- bership. On Tap Day those eligible observed a club meeting and formal initiation followed.

French Majors Master Language Study To acknowledge the French stu- dents who have mastered their language, the French Nati onal Honor Society accepts pupils com- pleting five semesters of the lan- guage at FHowe while maintaining a six-point grade average. Formal initiation ceremonies were held in the spring for those meeting the qualifications. During the bi-weekly meetings, films of France were viewed and topics of international interest were dis- cussed. When the year ' s program was planned, a trip to an exquisite French restaurant headed the agenda. Other added attractions included observing French movies and foreign stage plays. Miss Martha Ferguson reviews a French lesson with Norman McClain after class. Students Learn To Speak With Ease Talented speakers from the speech and debate teams made up the National Forensic League. An honorary organization sponsored by Mr. Steven Briggs, it accepted only those who had accummu- lated twenty-five honor points which were acquired in competi- tion with other high schools. Speech meets held each week included presentations of poetry reading, dramatic, humorous, and oratorical interpretations, radio announcing, and extemporaneous speaking. Like the speech team, the debate team took part in sev- eral meets and considered the question, " Resolved: that the U.S. should establish compulsory ser- vice for all citizens.

Throughout the year, several one-act plays were produced to give each member an opportunity to display his talents. Other jobs of the Revelers included working on stage crew, make-up crew, and helping direct the plays. When a Reveler had 100 hours of stage ex- perience, he was eligible to be- come a member of the National Thespian Troupe. Participants in this honorary organization had the opportunity to attend conventions held during the year. Both the Footlight Revelers and the National Thespian Troupe were sponsored by Mrs. Hariette Baker who also directed the productions presented for the public.

Those who excelled in these classes were given the oppor- tunity to study their respective lan- guages abroad through the I.U. Honors Program. Participants from FHowe included Margaret Pash and Mary Jane Freeland who studied in Mexico, Jerry Stockdale who travel- ed to France, and Anne Cobb who gained knowledge of Latin in Italy. From her position at the foreign language lab ' s consol, Miss Susan Webb can hear individual students pronunciate French dialogues and narratives.

" Crack-O " , a simple type of nut- cracker, was produced in the de- partment and distributed at the Hobby and Gift Show. It was de- signed by Mr. Jack Lawson. Boys enrolled in beginning metals and woodwork classes created ob- jects which appealed to their own interests. In advanced courses, they built lamps, tables and tools. Print- ing classes supplied programs for school activities. Becky McWilliams, one of the few girls en- rolled in a drafting class, works a problem. Joe Lee, a sophomore, uses the lathe to curve and design the wood for his project in wood shop. Each student must complete a required number of projects. 70 ROTC Trains Future Officers M Sgt. H.M. Ecktman SFC Bascom Perdue This year the R.O.T.C. Department was faced with the largest enroll- ment in its classes since the course was first offered at Howe in 1955. Through extensive practice and drills, cadets and sponsors strove for perfection as they performed in the parades, meets, and drills through- out the school year. A new look was noticed in the department with the addition of new sponsor ' s uniforms and revised drill team attire. A new school shield and symbolic battle ax were designed and used in various forma- tions. Sergeant Harold Ecktman exchanged places with Sergeant Bascom Perdue and became the Battalion Commandant. William Holman was Battalion Commander. Participating in the annual Veteran ' s Day Parade, the battalion staff leads the other marching companies. HONOR R R.O.T.C.

Freshmen girls must master basketball skills ofdribbling the ball and guarding the op- ponent. Physical education classes grew again this year with the course re- quired of all incoming freshmen. Rules and skills of team sports, volleyball, softball, and basketball, were taught to both boys and girls as were gymnastic fundamentals. Girls utilized rhythmics to improve posture, grace and dance tech- niques; boys enjoyed touch foot- ball and soccer. Individual sports, archery and golf, as well as tennis, received their share of attention in gym classes, too. When the weather permitted, classes were held out of doors. Hoping to improve his time, Jerry Pastrick, a freshman, " muscles up " the rope. Students Train For Future Driving Mrs. Margaret VVhaley, school nurse, checks student health records for accuracy. Learning the rules and regulations of mastering the automobile is only a small part of the driver education program. Also included, the actual driving experience under the super- vision of a skilled and competent instructor, played an important part in the safety of the future drivers enrolled. The presentation of films on automobile accidents and acci- dent prevention stressed upon the student the importance of driving know-how. One of the required courses at Howe, health classes provided an opportunity for students to learn about the functions of the different body parts and the symptoms, pre- vention and analyzation of diseases. A six-week study in first aid pro- vided instruction in the basic proce- dures of preliminary care to be followed in case of accidents or other emergencies.

Miss Yvonne Peak changed from office work to teaching at Howe. Mrs. Sharon Koepper taught at Arlington High School before she came to Howe, and after two years of teach- ing at Bunker Hill, Indiana, Miss Kathie Ruckriegle joined the Hornet staff. Another addition to the depart- ment was the reviving of the clerical practice course. This course was offered a few years ago, but was discontinued because of lack of interest. It again offered students interested in the business world, valuable experiences in the field. Other courses offered in the depart- ment provided training in machine calculation, data processing and bookkeeping in addition to typing and shorthand.

Mr. F. M. Howard Mr. William Cunningham Mr. James Lynch Mr. Charles Pirtle Mark Mahler, a senior, laces his billfold with leather thongs in a craft arts class. Art appreciation for the less skilled as well as art techniques for the talented were stressed by Mr. F. M. Howard ' s department. Students worked with a variety of materials to create articles for gifts and for their own use in crafts classes. In advanced art students concentrated on portraits and landscapes in oils, pastels and char- coal. Abstractions and proportions in pencil, pen and ink were studied . In hopes of preparing a course of study entitled art history, Mr. F. M. Fioward experimented with this type of material in his various classes this year, he plans to use it in the future. Art students also make crowns for dance royalty and advertising posters for other departments. Nature provides a pleasant atmosphere and colorful settings for advanced art students, who create both realistic landscapes and original designs. 76 Members of the Girls ' Octet must animate their musical renditions. Mr. Frank Watkins Mr. Robert Bramblett Mr. William Handley Mr. Thomas Lewis Mr. Louis McEnderfer Hornet Musicians Move At Fast Pace Under the direction of Mr. Frank Watkins, the Music Department completed another year of varied vocal and instrumental perform- ances. Howe ' s Christmas gift to the com- munity, a musical program that in- cluded both religious songs and the antics of Santa ' s elves, w as pre- sented at an evening show and again later for the student body. Annually the Spring Music Festi- val reveals the many hours of dedi- cated practice which students sacri- fice to perfect their talents. Both vocal and instrumental festivals were held on seperate evenings to provide entertainment for those in- terested in each field of music. Choreography and acting ability, voices and instruments, were com- bined by the department to com- plete another musical show. Per- formances in the PRV, at Vespers and commencement, in addition to many outside shows kept Hornet musicians moving at a fast pace all year long. Senior Rita Robbins revises her trumpet music prior to marching at a game.

Nine women kept Howe ' s offices running smoothly. ' Mrs. Eloise Steed, registrar, enrolled new students, prepared transcripts and filed official with- drawals and transfers. It was her responsibility to record monthly attendance reports for the down- town office. Mrs. Margaret Poole became the principal ' s secretary when Mrs. Norris Heidleman retired. Her duties ncluded preparation of the weekly oulletin and distribution of the mail as well as assisting Mr. Stirling. Newcomer to the staff, Mrs. Dorothy Johnson worked in the inglish office each morning and operated the PBX board each after- noon. Other women were " Girl Friday ' s " to the administrators.

As a result of the increased en- rollment, an additional lunch period beginning at 10:00 a.m. was added to the schedule this year. Because the cafeteria can seat onl 500, it was mandatory that the school revert to the third period lunch utilized prior to the completion of the present facilities in 1963. To meet these needs, Mrs. Helen Obery, head of the cafeteria workers, found it necessary to em- ploy additional cooks to prepare the food, serve it and wash the dishes. In addition to these jobs, mothers of students enrolled in Howe volunteered their ser ices at the banquets. Extra maintenance men were also needed to keep up the building and its surroundings. These workers were headed b Mr. John Du- Chemin. 79 Could Talk About Activities Providing the " fun " part of school life were the many extracurricular activities Howe offered its students. They performed in the annual PRV, attended numerous school dances and acted and sang professionally in the musical production, " South Pacific. " Homecoming queens reigned over two nights of festivities this fall and great statesmanship and politi- cal know-how was displayed in this year ' s Mock Election.

A surplus of acts was presented in tryouts held in preparation for the final performance. After care- ful scrutiny and final elimination, Mr. Bruce Beck, Miss Rhoda Kit- telsen. Miss Sue Zabst, and Miss Janice Brown, faculty judges, se- lected approximately fifty acts. In past years, themes for the Pleasant Run Varieties have cen- tered around Disneyland, a tour of the U.S., and Broadway. The 1968 PRV theme was " Just As We Are. " An innovation was tried at this year ' s PRV when the Mas- ter and Mistress of Ceremonies encouraged audience participation by engaging specific guests in conversation. Simple staging com- plemented the winter show.

Mystical Islands Of World War II Once the stage crew had sur- mounted the problem of con- structing a south sea island on the Hornet stage, the progress of the Music Department ' s " South Pacific " went smoothly. This year ' s musical played to three full houses. Harold Potter had no difficulty switching from the English Prof. Henry Higgins to the French Emile de Becque; Alexandra Stalas washed her hair as efficiently as did Mary Martin. Audiences responded as ex- pected to the antics of Luther Billis and to the familiar love story of Cable and Liat, but Bloody Mary stole the show with her sentimental rendition of " Bali Ha ' i " and " Happy Talk.

This fall a new method of deter- mining Honor Roll standing was initiated in all city high schools. A 6.0 grade average, rather than 30 honor points, was the b asis for Honor Roll status. Honor societies in specific areas of learning as well as the inclusive NHS continued to increase in size and number. They not only honored " the cream of the crop, " but en- couraged ' student initiative and interest. On Honors Day selected seniors and underclassmen were presented awards for citizenship and out- standing accomplishments in many fields. Departments also recognized those completing majors with high grade averages. Senior Pamela McKim accepts the DAR Good Citizen Award from Mrs. Max Barney. Gregory Graham, Patrick Dugan and John Ford, seniors, profitably spent one week of their sum- mer vacation at Hoosier Boys ' State on the Indiana University campus. Seniors Marcia Reasoner and Julia Alexander represented Howe at Girls ' State.

An integral part of any high school, athletics played a major role in the life of many students. Boys ran cross country, competed in track meets, played basketball, football and baseball, and took part in tennis and golf matches under the Tower ' s faithful watch. Displaying all-around good sportsmanship, Howe athletes and fans distinguished themselves in another year of athletic activity. Award Winners Form Lettermen ' s Club Under the sponsorship of athletic director, Mr. Samuel Kelley, the Lettermen ' s Club functioned as both an honor and a service orgar ' - zation. To be eligible for membership in the club, boys must earn a varsity letter in one sport. Members donate their help as ticket takers, floor sweepers, program distributors, sideline officials, and guides for guests at ail athletic events. Jerry Bertram, president, was aided by other officers Brad Rome- rill, Charles Pettee, Mollis Becker and Paul Shelton. An Athletic Council composed of lettermen and coaches meet at the end of each season to determine who will win awards. Junior Tom Marendt accepts his letter sweater from Mr. Charles Ruschhaupt, vice- principal. Varsity football players humbly receive their awards at the Fall Sports Banquet.

Mr. Dick McLeish left his posi- tion as assistant coach to replace Mr. Bob Wion as head mentor. Mr. Tom Cousineau, former Northwest teacher and Indianapolis Capital ' s player, became his aide. Statistics prove the team ' s ability. The offense covered 2155 yards on the ground and compiled 125 first downs; Tom Marendt and Don Britton averaged 6.8 yards per carry. Marendt also led the defense with 90 tackles and four intercep- tions. Larry Miller had 59 tackles; Willie Perry had three interceptions. Don Jones kicked 14 extra points, two of them providing the winning margin over Warren Central. Husky blockers serve as a brick wall to give quarterback Richard Kutche time to successiulK execute a toss-out against Manual.

Captain Rick Wren led the defensive unit that allovi ed only the Rockets to score more than one touchdown against the reserves. Tom Summit, Craig Reed, Randy Deane, Joe Eaton and Larry Whit- more scored most of the JV ' s tallies. Dave Utigard, Bill Deeter and John Lyons led the defense.

Freshman Peter VanMaaren took over where his brother, Henry, left off when graduation halted his running career. The underclassman placed well in front of his elders in most of the long-distance runs. Experience and maturity should provide the Hornets with an im- proved ' 70 record.

Frustrations were many for freshmen, who had to cope with tricky lockers and long homeroom periods. Sophomores acquired an amazing degree of self-confidence, having learned their way around the school. With the advent of college admissions tests and job applica- tions, self-consciousness returned to juniors. However, perseverence was rewarded with graduation for most Howeites. v y Frosh Plan Classes, Learn To Study In order to help freshmen become accustomed to high school life, stu- dents were enrolled in orientation, a course designed specifically for ninth graders. The second-semester program, entitled Vocational Infor- mation, helped to acquaint pupils with professional and occupational statistics important to their future careers. Freshmen became familiar with required and elective courses in order to assist them in the planning of their programs, an experience un- like anything else they had ever en- countered. This year ' s freshman class was the largest ever to enroll at Howe. The total of 725 students consists of 370 girls and 355 boys. Thirty-four new teachers joined the faculty.

For the first time this year, soph- omores purchased class rings in- stead of having to wait until their junior year. The class of 71 was exempt this year from the usual insect collec- tion. Instead, they contributed to a class collection. Sophomores did hand in the customary vocational themes in English 3 and leaf collec- tions in biology. Members of the sophomore class participated on a City Cham- pion basketball team. The boys showed great potential and are expected to be important members of next year ' s reserve and varsity squads.

Any senior who had paid his class dues attended the Senior Winter Party in early December. Prior to the change of semester in January, the class was measured for caps and gowns. March saw the seniors unite against the faculty and underclassmen at the yearly Senior- Faculty basketball game. Plans for the second annual senior week in May were climaxed with the Spring Party on the senior ' s last full day of school. Long awaited Vespers and Commencement brought the sen- ior ' s high school career to an end.

Sound advice and many imagina- tive ideas were obtained from the American Yearbook Company, es- pecially from Mr. William Wright, the company ' s representative. Countless pictures would not have been seen in this book had it not been for the help of Mr. James Shields, owner of Tower Studios. Mr. Shields not only managed the underclassmen portraits but also captured many exciting moments on film, while training the photog- raphers who were members of the yearbook staff. Special thanks are due Mrs. Patricia Alexander, who throughout the year acted as sponsor, counsel- lor, taskmaster, and sympathizer. She unlocked the school door on the Saturdays when the staff worked to meet deadlines, and she wrote the last two lines of copy no one could produce.

For thirty years the Tower which rises above Howe High School has been witness to many things: the coming and going of students and teachers, the additions of new wings and a stadium, student activities — including classes, plays, proms, de- bates, mock elections, and traffic jams at Exit 5, and competition in many sports fields — track, football, basketball and baseball. The Tower has not only witnessed these events, but has become a part of them. Photographers have taken many interesting pictures from the Tower. Old lab equipment is stored there by the Foreign Language De- partment; its solitude attracts am- bitious pupils who find it easier to study in the Tower ' s quiet and inspiring atmosphere. Clearly visible from the National Highway, the Tower symbolizes Howe and will continue to repre- sent its diverse educational philos- ophy for all future Hornets. 7 ft ■ !( I
