Answer: It de- pends on how you look at it. On the bad side, the strike caused many hard feelings among teachers. On top of that, the flood accentuated the year ' s bad start. If anyone walked out on campus right now, he would realize how the schools lit- tered appearance might reflect what ' s really inside, and what ' s inside just may not be worth reflecting. Although this year had its low points, things weren ' t all bad. The band ' s trip to Europe left the group with a deep apprecia- tion for their homeland. To promote base- ball at Howe, several parents and teachers got together to fix up the diamond in hopes of hosting the city tourney. The lock-out system was a help in cutting down on cam- pus loitering. There were a lot of bad things that hap- pened during the year and many students didn ' t care. But those who did made their time here worthwhile. (LORI SMITH AND PATTI STANLEY) TOP: Students use the media center for research and leisure reading.

The prolonged delay of the beginning of school, with the strike and flood, seem- ingly promoted apathy among the student body and also put tremendous pressure on teachers and students alike. But enough caring people got involved in activities to turn a year that got off to a bad start into a good one, both academically and socially.

STUDENT LIFE 4-Student Life Student Lift 5 Problems The end of summer is very rarely a fa- vorite time for students or teachers. For most it means the end of free time for warm weather activities and the beginning of the long school routine. This year ' s school beginning was more unpleasant than just the end of summer. It was surrounded by ques- tions and troubles that were both common and unique to Howe. The problems actually started a week be- fore school when most of the teachers in the city system voted to go on strike if their contract demands were not met. The pros- pects of not having any teachers had many students wondering about the first day of school and how the strike would actually affect Howe. As it turned out, registration day went well with only a small group of teachers picketing the entrances of the teachers ' parking lot and the intersection of Bancroft and Julian streets. One problem was with scheduling, as most people have come to expect. As usual there were many schedule problems during the first week of school; but according to Mr. Bruce Beck, vice-principal in charge of student scheduling, " most problems were caused by students changing classes at the last minute. " Mr. Beck also said schedule problems could have been avoided " if stu- dents would have notified the school of problems when they got their list of classes in early August.

Back to School— 7 High water The smoothly run registration day max have answered some of the questions about how things would go, but a senseless act of vandalism on Wednesday, Septem- ber 5, changed the looks of things. Some- time around 1:00 a.m. someone entered the building through an open window in room 34. went to a second-floor fire extinguisher, and turned the water on. The water was discovered at 4:00 a.m. by Mr. Gilmore, the school engineer. In some areas water was four to six inches deep. It badly damaged ceiling and floor tiles in the auditorium, lobby, cafeteria, and 19 classrooms. Car- peting had to be removed from the audi- torium, media center entrance, and coun- selors ' office. Estimates of S.IO.OOO damage were made on the building. Thanks to the assistance of custodial crews from mam city schools the water was cleaned up and classes were started the fol- lowing day. With only 30 to 33 teachers out and the help of substitutes, man) classes went as planned in spite of the strike. In October the strike ended with the teachers and school board agreeing to a binding arbi- tration settlement. " With all things taken into consideration Mr. Beck said, " the be- ginning of school has gone very smoothly.

" They weren ' t just talking about society in gen- eral; they were talking about Howe. If you ' ve ever asked them to tell you more about the " Good Old Days, " they prob- ably told you more than you bargained for. In the late 1920 ' s the citizens of the east-side town of Irving- ton realized the need for a high school of their own. Land for the building was purchased in 1928. On September 28, 1938, Thomas Carr Howe High School was officially opened with the starting of the tower clock. That was a very proud day for the many people who had worked so long for the school, and their pride in Howe was overwhelm- ing. The community showed their pride by making Howe the best in every category, especially in the beauty of the campus and building itself. Charles M. Sharp, the first principal, ran a tight ship. According to vice-principal Bruce Beck, " Mr. Sharp would send out a bulletin to faculty members informing them of a spot on a wall or a desk that was to be cleaned immediately. Our desks were to be cleared every night and window shades had to be pulled down at a uniform length. " The grounds were also very neatly trimmed with fine shrubbery. Mr. Beck attributed the garden-like campus and very clean building not only to the community but also to a highly dedicated custodial crew. The way other schools LEFT: The Howe tower has always been looked on as the architectural center of the school. thought of Howe would be a surprise to many students today . As Robert Bell, a 1955 graduate of Howe, put it, " We thought we were th e best in the county. " Of course, he went here and natu- rally thought very highly of the school but he wasn ' t alone. Ac- cording to Bruce Beck, Howe had a " snobby, sophisticated image " all around the county. This was the image that came along with its location in a well- to-do area. Butler University, which for many years was located in Irving- ton, played a big part in Howe ' s image. It made the community a very academic-minded one. There was a big emphasis on pre- paration for college. Roughly 70% of Howe ' s seniors did go on to school. Howe pushed for the first Advanced Placement classes in the county. The AP program came here in the 50 ' s and was largest around for quite a while. Several other advanced classes were added. These classes along with all of the strict rules of the school characterized Howe as a highly traditional and provincial place. In other words, if any- thing was done it was done well, it was done neatly, and it was done strictly according to the high standard associated with Howe. For the most part the high standards didn ' t bother Howe kids. As a matter of fact they were enthusiastically involved in just about every thing. If it was possible to have a club in any area, the Howe students had it — not because the faculty made them have it but because they really wanted it. They were a ery spirited group. Then and Now— 11 Now, Times have changed at Howe and so have the ideas of the people who make it go. The changes aren ' t restricted to this building, though: they ' re spread throughout society. But since this is where many of us spend a lot of time, what we see in school does reflect the differ- ences. The most obvious change is all around us every day— the con- dition of the campus. It seems to point out that respect for the building is way down. As Bruce Beck said, " We live in a very dif- ferent world " ; and in today ' s world school life isn ' t nearly as important as it was. Howe ' s reputation in the city might indicate that some people involved closely with the school are too critical of it. Through all of the bad publicity in 1979, it ' s amazing that many teachers at other city schools still associate Howe with that snobby, sophis- ticated image. While there may still be a small group which feels this way, the majority of people who attend Howe no longer feel that it is high above all the others. One area where we have shown superiority is in sports. The athletic department now of- fers 19 different sports, which is a big increase over the early years and is far above any other city school. The additions have come mostly in the area of girls ' teams; but the boys ' teams, espe- cially in wrestling, have been given good support. As for school spirit, in general it has gone down like many other things. This is partly due to the fact that so many students are away from school working during the day. There are also many more opportunities available to people now and the school i n ' t looked upon as such an important cen- ter of activity. Howe ' s history is something that will always be around to provide happv memories for those w ho w ere a part of it and information for those who weren ' t, what reallv matter-, though, is now and the future. The future will be bright as long as good opportunities remain at How e for those who want them.

Students were frustrated with the strike and its effect on their classes, while teachers were frustrated with the usual pranks and truancy. The exact causes that triggered the surfacing of these frustrations are yet to be found. UPPER LEFT: Mr. Vollmer ' s pet boa constrictors liven up his English classes at the beginning of every year.

Classes— 1 5 Apathetic Along with frustration came apathy hand in hand. Students were often ap- athetic because of social pressure and school problems. Many students were not sure of who their counselor was, so they turned to friends for advice and were more confused and frustrated than before. Trailing behind apathy came declining en- rollments. Though this decline in enrollment was not great, it caused changes in areas like foreign language. Because of lower enroll- C no ment, French 3G was combined with French 3R and all of the foreign language clubs were combined to make the International Club.

Howe is recognized nationally in art and publications. It produces the most col- lege-bound students in the city, and its ca- reer center places more students on jobs than any other in the IPS system. Last, Howe students leave knowing that someone cares.

The physical education department offers a relief from the school day. Our gym classes allow us to relax our brains by doing physical work. They relieve the pressures of the day and are beneficial because of the simple fact that they are good for our health. Because the school system wants to intro- duce different physical activities to its stu- dents, one year of gym class is required for graduation. Most students get this require- ment out of the way during their freshman year, but for people who want to take more gym classes there is a full schedule of ad- vanced gym classes. The second year teaches the students about team sports. The third year is geared toward physical activities such as weight-lifting and gymnastics. The final year is directed toward individual sports such as golf and tennis. But the physical education department is not all running and playing basketball. It does have its share of brainwork. One semes- ter of health is required for graduation. Most people may think that the reason for this re- quirement is to learn about the body and how its organs work, but department head Jim Stutz said that health class basically tries to promote good hygiene. Also, Mr. Arvin teaches a class called drug education. This class helps students learn more about drugs and the effects they have on the body. Driver education is unique and complete- ly different from other classes because it is a " happening " and a complete teenage ex- perience. No teenager can go through high school and not hear the story about the girl who thought the " P " on the gearshift stood for " Pass. " Not many people know driver education is part of the physical education department, but if they did they might say it was their favorite physical education class.

Clas 21 Honor unit Many people here misunderstand the purpose of ROTC and the type of people who take the course. " It is not for a failing student, " commented M Sgt. Harold Ecktman about the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, which is the correct name for the class. Backing up his statement is the fine record of the Howe JROTC. For seven out of the last ten years the Howe unit has been declared an Honor Unit with Distinction. This honor came from the United States Government and is the highest honor a unit can receive. The honors received start in the class- room. Members of JROTC are subject to some of the same obstacles as other students when it comes to making the grades. Quizzes and exams are a big part of the grades, and weekly inspections also carry weight in a person ' s grade. Classwork is not by any means the extent of the program. Male and female drill teams are an after-school activity and the rifle team also practices after school on the Howe rifle range, one of the finest in the city. The JROTC has also participated in many city activities like the city drill meet and the Fort Benjamin Harrison Christmas party. They presented the colors at a school board meet- ing and received a streamer for winning fourth place among 40 units at the Veterans Day Parade. The goals of this year ' s JROTC were much the same as in other years: to teach respect for constituted authority, respect for the government, and patriotism. The kind of patriotism taught is not the flag-waving type but a good feeling about the country. (TOMHARTON) TOP RIGHT: Rifle team high firer Kevin Johnson takes careful aim on the Howe rifle range.

T ' m getting knowledge of how a real Mm office works, how to get along with the people you work with, and how to keep things running smoothly, " said Mary Chand- ler as she explained why she was in COE. Cooperative Office Education is just one of the work study programs that give a stu- dent the experience he needs to enter a job. Howe also offers Industrial Cooperative Training (ICT) and Distributive Education (DE). Besides credit and money the work study programs benefit the students in other areas as well. They get the advantage of on-the-job training and a head start on their knowledge of how to handle a job or future career. Mrs. Perry, the coordinator of COE, has been involved with the program lor eight years and feels her students are verv capable of climbing the ladder. " I ' m to the point now where I have some of my former stu- dents as my student supervisors because thev kept going up through the ranks, " she ex- plained. There are many reasons why a student enters a work study program. Experience, money, credit or the knowledge one gains- whatever the reason, there is a steady increase of students entering the programs each car. There were approximated 112 students enrolled in the work study programs this year. Howe is known to have one of die strongest work programs in the city. Main businesses involved in the programs prefer I low estudents because of their work records. (J ICKBESKAGGS) Work Study-25 PRESSURIZE]) CCH jr erk calling Erson. Merk calling Krson. Come in, M " YES, MERK! WHAT IS IT? " " Your Immenseness, I have been carefully studying what is know on this planet as ' teen- agers in their natural environ- ment. I have discovered some very interesting quirks in their behavior. " " WELL, GO ON. " " They experience a strange and somewhat dangerous disease called ' pressure. Sometimes it comes from other people, par- ents or friends, urging them to do something. But even more of- ten this pressure is caused by little voices INSIDE them telling them what they should do. " " DONT THESE EARTHLINGS HAVE ANY INTELLIGENCE? WHY CANT THEIR GERMS BE ISOLATED AND SHIPPED OUT INTO SPACE? " " It ' s not as easy as that. There are lots of ways to become ' pres- surized. " Some of these young people don ' t like the way they are, so they feel pressured to change themselves. They want to be more like the people around them. " " I CANNOT UNDERSTAND YOUR SO-CALLED ' TEEN- AGERS. ' " " J know they seem strange, but they look at things differently than Erkans do. What thev HAVE can be as important as who they ARE. If a lot of peo- ple have ears, then a car becomes very important possession. The male Earthling especially seems to feel bad if he doesn ' t have a car, and the more he worries about it, the more pressured he feels. The female also feels the same kind of pressure. Some- times she dresses a certain way because it is ' popular, ' which means that most people wear this style of clothing. " " ON ERK EVERYONE LOOKS THE SAME. I CAN ' T SEE " WHAT DIFFERENCE IT MAKES WHAT ONE WEARS! " " Since our society is so differ- ent, you can ' t be expected to relate to these teenagers. This is just ONE of the special problems that they must deal with! Deci- sions that young people make can also be important. If a teenager stays out late parents get angry, and yet if he leaves a party early his friends don ' t like it. Deciding which way to go seems to cause those little voices from inside to fight and strug- gle. " " MAYBE NOW YOU WILL AP- PRECIATE YOUR OWN SOCI- ETY. " " Really it is very interesting to watch these young people plan their futures. Young people must decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. That statement, THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, is enough to scare them to death. Some people say, ' Whoa, man, there aren ' t enough jobs. ' Then someone else yells, ' Well you can ' t go to college- it costs too much! ' On top of that the little voices keep saving, ' Hurry up— time is running out. ' It ' s no wonder that this disease causes headaches and ulcers. " " IF THEY HAD ANY SENSE THEY WOULD JUST SIT AT HOME AND LET SOMEBODY ELSE DO THE WORK. " " If they didn ' t care about any- thing, their lives would certainly be easier, but they do! To suc- ceed (for all Erkans, this word translates as ' ribholtz ' ) is what all these Earthlings work for. These strange little voices make students stay up all night working on a paper or cause panic before, during and after tests. Not because their parents beat them if they don ' t do well in school, or because friends won ' t like them, but because thev them- selves care. " " THIS CARING BUSINESS SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF TROUBLE TO ME! " " Without emotions I know it ' s hard for you to understand, Erson, but lots of these Earth- lings have very strong feelings about the things they do. Inside themselves, they feel an urge to be successful at any activity. Everyone, at some time in his life, pressures himself to do well. " 26- " PRESSURIZED " " THESE EARTHLINGS Ml ST BE REAL NIMM ' LS. WE DID AW U WITH ALL THESE TROUBLESOME EMOTIONS BLEAMS AGO. " " Emotions can bo fun, Erson. This pressure disease isn I always bad. It makes teenagers earn money to get cars, and work hard to make good grades, i ou are right, though. It does ha o had effects. When high school students here on Earth care too much about something, a strange thing occurs. Thev often lose interest in EVERYTHING they ' re doing, and without pros- sure they end up standing still in space. " " ISN ' T THERE ANY CURE FOR SUCH AN ILLNESS? " " Well, some of the more intel- lectual Earthlings, called college professors, are doing research on this subject. There are even counselors to help over-pres- sured students. These advisors suggest everything from deep breathing to yoga. " " THAT IS THE FIRST SIGN OF LNTELLIGENCE I ' M ' . SEEN IN THIS PRIMITIVE SO- CIETY. IF THEY HAVE LEARNED THE VALUE OF MEDITATION, MAYBE THERE IS SOME HOPE FOR THEIR FUTURE. " " Yes, sir, I really think there is hope for them. For now, this is Me.rk from Erk signing off. I ntil next year, Na-No, Na-No! " With apologies to " Mork and Mindy " (KAREN MARSHALL) " PRF.SSURIZED " -27 Disco fades, rock rolls on Being able to relax, have fun, and be with friends after hours plays a major role in the ability to cope with the pres- sures of high school. This year was no different than past years as Howe students entertained themselves with many extracur- ricular activities, including dances, shows and concerts. With disco ' s popularity fading rapidly, many discotheques found it necessary to hire live rock bands to perform in order to bring in the business. The at- tendance at after-game dances and other post-game activities was also down slightly. Music as a whole was just as popular as ever. Rock made a strong comeback after hiding in disco ' s shadow for a year or so. There was a change on the con- cert scene, though. Festival seat- ing was banned and reserved seating was made mandatory for all concerts. This move was made by city officials to prevent any problems caused by excited concert fans. Indianapolis hosted a fair number of good concerts, including headliners Styx, Billy Joel, Aerosmith, the Jacksons, and Parliament. Since the average teenager could become extremely bored sitting around waiting for one of these fantastic concerts to come to town, movies filled the gaps between live shows. Many good movies of a wide variety were re- leased during the year and most were well received. Steve Martin ' s " The Jerk " was a silly success story appropriate enough for the wild and crazy guy. " The Mup- pet Movie " followed suit with the nonsense of today ' s comedy. Many who saw it felt it was a waste of money, but this suc- cessful endeavor said much for the creator of the cloth darlings from Sesame Street. With all of this comedy and silliness going on, suspense movies offered a welcome change of pace. " When A Stranger Calls " made a lot of would-be babysitters think twice as they left the theater with wid- ened eyes and pounding hearts. " The Amityville Horror " had much the same effect on people, causing a bad case of knee- knocking and nail-biting. For those who read the book, the movie was a slight disappoint- ment, as a few too many changes were made during the course of the film. In keeping with the current science fiction fad, " Alien " was a huge success. The full-length movie version of " Star Trek, " one of the most antici- pated sci-fi events, materialized this year and was received with mixed feelings. Despite student apathy toward school, school-sponsored shows and dances fared rather well. However, students were in- formed that this year ' s Brown and Gold dance could have been the last one. Fortunately, enough students wanted this Howe tradition preserved and ticket sales went up at the last minute. For many students, arranging, participating in and attending school performances served as entertainment. They, as well as the professional forms of enter- tainment, provided a desirable outlet for our excess energy and saved us from boredom.

Entertainment— 29 One taco to go ' | he food of the average ■ " teenager comes in many different sizes, shapes, colors, tastes and containers but it all averages out to two groups: the " junk " food and the healthy " good for you " food. So why do we people prefer pizza and Pepsi over spinach and milk? First of all, the average teen- ager does not have a lot of time. We are too busy going to school or a friend ' s house or to a game to sit down and have a home- cooked meal. Most of the time we do eat at home but we ' re too busy to eat at home all the time. This is why there are the fast food restaurants. They provide the thing teenagers need. Fast food. On-the-move food for on-the-move people. The disad- vantage of the fast foods is that tacos and paperbag french fries are not healthy. They are junk food. But who cares? Money is another problem of the teenager. What do we do if we ' re hungry and we only have 50 cents? We buy coke and candy, and why not? It ' s sold in the school lobby after school. Here is another reason for our addiction to junk food. It ' s available. All we have to do is walk down to the corner. The gas station and the " 7-11 " provide all the inexpensive, fast junk food we can handle, from two-cent pieces of candy to mi- crowave pizza. No wonder we eat more junk food than healthy food. Junk food has seemingly adapted to the life-styles of the American teenager. It ' s easy to get at, get, and go with. Every- thing we could ever ask for, except healthy. The only time we eat well while eating out is when we ' re out on a date. The guy wants to make a good impression so he takes the girl to a fine restaur- ant. But after they ' re going steady it ' s back to McDonald Land.

Foods- 31 Clubs combine Lack of interest and sponsorship caused many changes in Howe clubs to begin the 1979-1980 school year. It seemed that combining some clubs and changing member- ship qualifications for other were the only remedies and the best ways to make them more successful. The biggest difference in this year ' s groups was in the foreign language depart- ment. The French, Spanish, and once-strong German Clubs did not even exist this year. They combined to form the new Interna- tional Club. There were advantages to the new club as president Nancy Janes pointed out. " Together as one we are able to do more and it provides a look at cultures other than the one you are studying or have studied in your foreign language class.

The club ' s activi- ties began in December with a successful trip to the Marion County Home where they caroled for the residents. They also caroled at Lockerbie Square and had a Christmas party. In addition to these activities, they sold seat cushions at the February basket- ball games in order to support Howe athle- tics and hoped to boost school spirit and unity throughout the year.

They were given demonstrations on nature photo- graphy from sponsor James arber and pro- fessional nature photographer Bill Foshee. The naturalists also planned to visit the Indianapolis Zoo and some of the state parks in hopes of observing various forms of na- ture. The main purpose of this year ' s " Fabulous Film Factory " or Media Club was to further students ' interests in the art of communica- tion. The three-year-old club, which is a member of the Indiana Student Media Association, attended the ISMA convention on October 24 and 25 at Turkey Run State Park. The cost of the trip was covered by a car wash and the after-school sale of pickles and candy apples in the lobby. Other Media Club events were a T-shirt transfer contest and a poster and button sale. This year ' s Future Educators in Action got off to a late start due to the teacher strike. Once organized, the club planned trips to the Indiana School for the Blind, In- diana Dental College, and Central State Hospital. They also made visits to nursing homes and helped the Red Cross. Two groups which represented Howe in competition with other schools were the chess club and the quiz team. Quiz team practiced Monday through Thursday after school to drill on various subjects for speed and accuracy. The chess club, one of the most successful at Howe, not only learned how to play chess better but also learned how to play competitively. Undefeated at deadline time, the team hoped to successful- ly defend their 1978-1979 state champion- ship.

Changes this year made the All-American award winner a more attractive package. Besides having just news, it also has magazine features. Movie reviews, student opinions, more photographs, and features about teenage life were combined in the new format. The audience had mixed feelings about the paper. Some thought it was entertaining and had a wide variety of interesting con- tents. " I like it but they don ' t put it out enough, " explained Julie Walker. Others thought there wasn ' t enough in it to attract the teen ' s interest. " All they do is tell us about our problems and getting into drugs arid messing up in school. It ' s good informa- tion but we do get tired of it in every edi- tion. ' ' commented Rhonda illiams. Although putting out a newspaper seems easy to the outsider, there were problems in putting out the expanded paper. Meeting deadlines was hard as always. Added investi- gative reporting and in-depth writing took more time than just reporting about school events. Most of the staff members were in- volved in jobs or school activities which caused time conflicts. Much of the writing and paste-up took place during evening ses- sions and on weekends. Most staff members found it a " challeng- ing, enjovable experience. " Three-year staff member Tawn Parent commented that it should benefit her in the future. Editor Karen Stewart praised her staff for their cooperation. (WENDI SKAGGS) 36-TOWER LEFT: TOWER is not all work. Editor Karen Stew- art helps advisor Dave Massy do a puzzle.

It took less than five minutes for me to realize that the real challenge of a yearbook staff is not all that stuff about caring and responsibility— it is just getting along with a group of teen- agers so much like myself. For me, working on the yearbook has been a pressurized, frustrating but sometimes hilarious experience. Whether you like it or not, when you join a staff you take on a certain amount of responsibility to the stu- dents you work with. Basically that means you ' re supposed to finish your work, but on HILLTOPPER you could be asked to do almost anything. As a typist I have written copy, alphabetized pictures, and even pasted up spreads. Without cooperation a staff can accom- plish nothing, and yet you don ' t always feel like being cooperative. If you go into room 240 right after you flunk your French test or with your eyes still glued shut from the night before, it is easy to resent being asked to forget everything else and just concen- trate on a yearbook that will not be out for six months. When I joined the staff I had never come into contact with deadlines that were abso- lutely crucial to more people than just myself. During my two years on the staff, I discovered a strange similarity between dead- lines and the Plague. One of the most frus- trating parts of yearbook work is the fact that you often work until you are ready to fall over and still know that there will be more to do the next day. It is the kind of work that is a continuous process, and it is hard to understand the importance of dead- lines that fall months before the delivery date of the book. Yearbook becomes a completely separate world from the rest of your life. You learn quickly that you have to have a certain de- gree of self-confidence to survive on a year- book staff. You are under constant pressure to do better and under constant criticism that seems to be directed towards you alone. The pressure that you feel doesn ' t all come from the staff itself, however. I resented the free time that I had to sacrifice for the yearbook, and yet I felt an urge to defend every minute I spent in room 240. HILL- TOPPER means a constant struggle to fulfill a responsibility and yet not become obsessed with that part of your life. I don ' t want to mislead you. The word " yearbook " is NOT a new synonym for bad news. After all, where else do you find a typewriter named Fred or comic strips in your mailbox every day? It has to be a rare group where the advisor is INTO rock music, the editor practices her " splits " while writ- ing copy, and the favorite sport of 75% of the staff is EATING. So when you ask a HILLTOPPER staffer why he sticks with yearbook, don ' t be surprised if he looks up at you blankly and screams, " INSANITY! " (KAREN MARSHALL) TOP LEFT: Tom Harton finds escaping work on the album is no easy job.

HILLTOPPER-39 " For the students " Being a student council member involves many different things. It involves tak- ing criticism, making plans, working hard un- der adverse conditions, and having fun. This year ' s council did all of those things, operat- ing with the theme " For the Students. " The theme, even though very basic, was not at all easy to carry out. After an early summer retreat in Brown County State Park most council members looked forward to a relaxing summer. It ended quickly in late August with the job of putting together an early homecoming under the threat of a teachers ' strike. This got the year off to a bad start and a similar situation occurred in organizing the Winter Sports Spectacular during the second semester scheduling mess. Some of the projects carried out were not as rushed and therefore met with more favorable reactions. The haunted house, for instance, caught the attention of a lot of students and created real fears for some of their little brothers and sisters. The gong show gave everyone an opportunity to see someone their own age act dumb on stage, and the jersey sale provided many people with something to wear on special Fridays. The second Leadership Odyssey gave, as sponsor Pat Aman said, " an eager bunch of freshmen " a good introduction to council ideas. President Jeff Haboush observed, " the ideas are the same as always but each cabinet works differently. " He also summed up the year for everyone on council: " There ' s been good times as well as trying times. It ' s been an experience.

Student Council— 41 Time causes problems Problems were created for the planners and participants of the 1979 fall homecoming because they had only three weeks in which to work. Because of the shortness of time, generating spirit and find- ing support for the event was difficult. The success of homecoming week activi- ties was mixed. Some of the newer ones such as the tug of war, frisbee throw, and tricycle race were cancelled due to a lack of interest, while the more traditional ones tended to go a little bit better. Farmers day, crazy hat day, and brown and gold and button day were encouraged on certain days of the week and all met with minimal success but did go over well with those who took part. The bonfire on the night before the game showed great improvement over previous years. At- tendance was better and some of the foot- ball players helped the cheerleaders in lead- ing cheers.

Because of the teacher strike, which kept some club spon- sors out of school, there were only three floats. The floats, which represented the sen- ior, junior and sophomore classes, were well done for the amount of time that was availa- ble to work on them. The senior class float, with the theme " No Manual— Just Automat- ic Success, " won the competition because of its artwork and creativity. The parade also included the Howe cheerleaders and king and queen candidates riding in cars with con- vertible tops. At the game there were both excitement and disappointment as the Hornets failed to beat the tough Manual competition. Jane Maddrill was crowned homecoming queen at halftime and Gary McPherson was crowned king at the after-game dance which ended the week ' s activities.

Homecoming-43 European journey Last summer the Howe band took ad- vantage of an opportunity of a lifetime. Director Hal Meurer had seen a magazine advertisement about the W orld 1 outh and Music Festival held annuallv in ienna, Aus- tria. After writing for details. Mr. Meurer received an invitation from the Austrian government to bring the band and partici- pate in the festival. The invitation was extended to the band, Hornet Honeys, choir members, and anv other student, parent, or facultv member. Response to the proposi- tion was good. The price was set at SI. 000 per person, which would include food, lodging, and transportation. Soon preparation began. Arrangements for the itinerarv, concerts, hotels, meals, and transportation were made by a group of par- ents. In summer school, the band practiced for the international contest in ienna, sev- eral parades, concerts, and the massed band performance at Schoenbrunn Palace. The band also gave two concerts to raise money for the trip before they left. Finallv the long-awaited day arrived. The three Grevhounds and equipment truck left the Howe parking lot at 2:00 p.m. on August 3 with 121 anxious travelers. The long plane trip to Luxembourg via Iceland was a new experience for many. At Luxembourg, thev reloaded on three buses and began their tour. Paris, France, was their first stop.

" Notre Dame was one of the most beautiful places I ' ve ever seen, " said Joann Finch. After Paris, it was on to Lucerne, Switzer- land. " In Switzerland the scenery was so beautiful you felt like you were in a fantasy world, commented icki Schmidlin. From there thev traveled to Innsbruck, Austria, and ienna. where they spent one week. During that week in ienna, the group took a side trip to a town called Kapfenburg. where they were well received. At Schoen- brunn Palace, in ienna. thev participated in a massed band concert with 21 other bands from all over the world. After the concert, there was a party for all the bands. " Every- one was from different countries, but we seemed to understand each other, " said Lowell Hren. Even though the band didn ' t win the in- ternational contest, they were Americas onlv band represented and were clearly favored by the Europeans. They drew large crowds everywhere thev went and some were asked to sign autographs. After touring ienna and Kapfenburg, the exhausted travelers wound up their jour- nev with one last stopover at Karlsruhe. Ger- manv. before the last leg back to Luxem- bourg. " It was fun and exciting to visit different places, " said David Hayes. ' " The best part of all is now I can sav I ' ve been to Europe.

Band members were asked to sign up for two consecutive periods of band. Although some students ' schedules couldn ' t be changed, most mem- bers liked the idea. " Our music style will improve. The way it is now, we have to play a song once or twice and move on to the next one to get anything done, " said Luke Hale. In addition, Mr. Meurer was assigned to Howe all day instead of a half day. " It ' s a great help to our band because I have more time for preparation and teaching beginners, " said Mr. Meurer. (LORI SMITH) RIGHT: Chris Graves adds to a strong baritone sec- tion.

Stunning halftime After one week ' s rest from Europe, the marching band began to learn their new halftime show. With only one week left before the first home game, the band prac- ticed hours on end every day to pull toge- ther another stunning routine. Marching to " New World Symphony, " " Don ' t Cry Out Loud, " " El Dorado, " " What I Did For Love, " and ' What Kind of Fool Am I, " their performances kept spectators in their seats. " I felt like I had done something to be proud of, " said drum major Rusty Denton. Possible plans for next year include an out-of-state trip and competition in the Indiana State Fair. During basketball season, the pep band, although down in numbers, continued to help rouse spirit in the stands. " I think it ' s great but we need more spirit, " John Davis remarked. Without a doubt, the band has recently been one of the most improved organiza- tions at Howe.

Conductor Miss Lew- is would like the orchestra to have a festival with other schools and a possible concert at the Hyatt Regency. Although the orchestra practices often, senior Linda Carter felt, " We try but we lose a lot of talent. " So they played at schools 57 and 58 to recruit new players. Miss Lewis ex- plained, ' " Our feeder schools don ' t know what we have here. " What really made the orchestra enjoyable was the closeness and togetherness. Because the players got along so well, they were able to get a lot of work and practice completed. Being able to get more practice in made it possible for the orchestra to improve.

On December 18, 1979, the concert choir sang at Howe ' s annual Christmas con- cert. It went very well, and the performing groups did a commendable job. Department chairman Thomas Lewis com- mented that most of the music department ' s work aims toward the spring musical which takes place sometime in May. Some people feel that more students should participate in music. Many believe that without the music department they would just be another student with nothing to do. (JANET ASHBY) TOP: CHORALAIRES.

Howes Trebleaires changed their style to a more casual performance this year, switch- ing from long dresses to short skirts and singing new types of songs including barber- shop quartet music. Their number decreased from twenty to fourteen, bringing the girls together in a more closely knit group. The combined Madrigal-Ensemble did ex- cellent work this year according to Mr. Bramblett. They gave 100% effort and coop- eration to make their group good. With Gary McPherson as King, Karin Hilton as Queen, and Bill Leamon as the Lord of Misrule, the group delighted their crowds.

" It was clever without a plot. " " The talent we had was excellent. Darin Ettner did a good job of letting his character capture your imagination, " commented Jim Bryson, who played Schroeder in " You ' re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. " Students and parents who came to see the show left remembering how hard they had laughed when Darin Ettner, as Linus, brought his character to life with the song " My Blan- ket and Me. " Equally enjoyable was Bill Learn on, as Snoopy, with his " Snoopy ' s Sup- pertime Song. " The audience ' s response to the musical was overwhelming as there was standing room only on the night of the final perfor- mance. All the hours put to work instead of play during the two months of practice produced an excellent summer musical. It was felt by the cast to be the best and most humorous musical done under the direction of Mr. Lewis. Bill Leamon felt that " the cast and extras became real close, like a big family, during the summer.

" 60— Spring Musical Something new and different Being new and different made the an- nual musical a challenging production. " How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying " is a comedy satire on businessmen and secretaries in the 1960 ' s. The music de- partment had never attempted such a modern show before. Because of its different style, " How to Succeed " made problems for the various areas of production. The pit orchestra was faced with the crazy style of jazz swing. " Most of the members had never had to play those types of rhythms before, " explained Miss Mabel Lewis. Setting the stage for a modern office was not an easy job for the stage crew either. Even with all the artistic stage talent that Howe possesses, it was still very hard to make an office seem interesting, let alone exciting. Although " How to Succeed " created hard times in production, the overall atmosphere LEFT: Karin Hilton sings of her " Paris Original " dress, which she hopes will catch Finch ' s eye. was great. Putting a " hint of sex " into some choreography, especially " Paris Original, " made for many laughs. The kids were able to really enjoy themselves while playing their parts. Leading the way was Bill Leamon as J. P. Finch, the conniving window washer who works his way to the top of World Wide Wickets, Inc. Opposite him was Karin Hilton as Rosemary, a secretary who has loved Finch ever since she first saw him but has had to sit and wait for him. But Bill and Karin were only two of several main char- acters who created the enthusiasm. Everyone had a great time doing the show and loved it. Eventually, with hours and hours of prac- tice, things began to fall into place. The change in style had proved to be a good move. On March 19-22, the students put on the musical, delighting each audience with the comedy and fine presentation.

" This is a good defini- tion by Webster but it leaves out the feelings of enthusiasm among teammates, the shouts of spectators, and the exhilaration of competition. Many opportu- nities are open to the individual who has the desire and ability to participate. Baseball, basket- ball, cross country, football, golf, gymnastics, swimming, and wrestling help round out our program. Sports, a main extra- curricular activity, are enthusias- tically followed by Howe fans. Howe is the only school in Indianapolis that offers the en- tire suggested list of sports from the IHSAA. Howe ' s program has grown gradually to its present nineteen sports. This year Howe has added softball and looked toward soccer as a possible twen- tieth. Most of these sports are divided into several levels of competition to give more stu- dents a chance to participate. Student athletes also find a physical outlet through intra- murals such as bowling, basket- ball and indoor track. The intra- mural program is designed to en- courage students to take part in some form of healthful recrea- tion. Its purpose is to provide di- version from the hectic school day and at the same time en- courage friendly competition. The athletic director and all of the coaches make Howe ' s program what it is today. " If the program succeeds, it is be- cause of the coaches, but if the program fails it is because the athletic director, " comented ath- letic director Rick Hewitt. Hew- itt ' s duty is the overall super- vision of anything that has to do with the program. This in- cludes helping choose coaches, making schedules, hiring game officials, etc. Under Hewitt ' s authority is also handling of money. It takes almost $35,000 to run the ath- letic program annually. The school board provides money for coaches ' salaries and additions to the school. Most of the equip- ment and supplies are paid for by the profits from ticket sales. The rest of the money is provid- ed by auxiliary groups such as the 400 Club and the Varsity Club. The 400 Club is the main contributor to Howe ' s athletic needs. The club donates between $10,000 and $12,000 a year. " The 400 Club supports the pol- icies of the school. The club also supports the general welfare of all students by providing equip- ment and or funds over and above that provided by the school board, " stated Al 11a- boush, 400 Club president. The club raises much of its money by selling advertisements in the football and basketball pro- grams. The club also raises mon- ey from sales at the concession stand during the winter. The Varsitv Club recognizes and stresses the prestige of being a letterman. The club contri- butes to the athletic department by raising money for athletic banquets and awards. With the continuing efforts of the athletic director, coaches, and auxiliary groups, Howe ' s fu- ture looks bright. Even after graduation, athletes can benefit from their athletic experiences through scholarships and long- lasting memories.

Sports in Depth— 65 tt No crybabies 99 Being able to work well together is something that every winning team must have. Varsity baseball coach Errol Spears said, " Because the players got along so well, it made it easy on me. It ' s nice not to have any crybabies on the team. " At the start of the season Coach Spears stated that he could possibly have the best hitting team in years. His hopes never came true. At the end of the season, when asked if he still had the best hitting team, he simply stated " No. " " They didn ' t have any power hits. The kind that fly out of the ballpark and bring in the runs. When the batters hit ' em far there was always somebody out there to catch them. " But the batting wasn ' t all bad. Senior Jerry Suiter was " unbelievable. " He got to base the first twelve times he went to bat. They also lacked an overpowering pitch- er. Without a strong pitcher a lot of pitches were hit into an outfield that, as coach Spears put it, " could have been a bit better. " Juggling pop flies and mental errors like throwing to the wrong base hurt the defen- sive department. Coach Spears praised their aggressiveness. They may have been a little slow but they had great leadoffs and steals. This aspect of the team was a real standout in a 13-6-1 sea- son. Jerry Suiter had the most RBI ' s and was voted the team ' s Most Valuable Player. Rob Thompson was awarded the Best Mental Attitude Award.

Ti Reserve baseball coach Jim Thompson said, " The boys all worked hard but they were up against some stiff competi- tion. " He felt that their two hardest games were against Northwest (7-8) and Lawrence Central (0-1). " Both games were pitcher against pitcher. " The reserve team was almost the oppo- site of the varsity team because pitching was reserve ' s greatest power. In their first game, against Scecina, pitcher Keith Branham struck out twelve batters. Later in the sea- son he struck out thirteen Arlington hal- ters. Branham finished ihc season with an average of eleven strikeouts per game and was voted the team ' s Most Valuable Player. Jeff Davis and Mark Faubion were also good pitchers. Ron Songer ' s batting average of .388 and Keith Branham ' s of .417 led the team in batting. The team ended up with a 12-8 sea- son record. " Nice bunch of kids to work with, " is how coach Virgil Bleill felt about the fresh- man baseball team. Catcher Scott Kehl commented, " Pitching was a large handicap, hut our batting and outfield was fair. " Al- though the team finished with a 4-8 season record, not one of the sixteen players quit alter the first game was played.

" Everybody was so relaxed even before a game. " Throughout their matches the team ' s devotion to the sport and one an- other was a big part of their winning season. Their unity was displayed when Penny LaRue commented that Gustavia Helm was one of the team ' s greatest assets. " Gus was the leader. She held us together throughout the year. The girls ' tennis team ended the season with a record of 11-4. At the end of the sea- son outstanding players were recognized.

Girls ' Tennis— 71 Sheets, Kelley excel In January of 1979 three-year golf coach Joe Vollmer was surplused, leaving a big gap to be filled for the boys ' team in the spring. The gap was filled by long-time basketball coach Jim Stutz. Stutz, who hadn ' t coached the golf team since 1969, was pleased with the way the boys came together and improved as the season progressed. This improvement helped the team end up with a winning record and a fifth-place city finish. With just four returning players the team ' s 9-8-1 record was unexpected; but as team captain Jeff Sheets pointed out, it could have been better. He said " lack of experience in tournaments " was a big problem and caused the team to lose some important matches. Jeff Sheets and veteran varsity member John Kelley proved their golfing talents by combining for medalist honors in eight of the season matches. Mark Holm, David Baker, Bill Mead, and Chris Kosegi also gave good support as the season progressed. At the spring sports banquet John Kelley was presented the Most Valuable Player Award. Because John and Jeff Sheets were good friends and they had always been competing and arguing about who would win the award, John insisted Jeff ' s name be added to the plaque. Other awards were given to David Baker for Best Mental Atti- tude and Bill Mead for Most Improved Player. At the end of the season team members voted Jeff Sheets the captain for the 1980 season.

There wasn ' t any- thing surprising about Cheryl Craig setting a new record in the low hurdles and becoming a state finalist. Sherry Curry, the most out- standing runner, not only set a record in the long jump but was also city champ in the 440. And last but not least, the medley relay team were city champs also. Aside from their athletic talent, coach Perkins was also pleased with their classroom success. Managing a record of 9-4, the girls ' track team finally got a " piece of the pie.

How- ever, the team worked hard to improve and ended up with an 8-8 season record and sent three runners to the state meet. They lacked depth, however, by not having three experienced men in every event. But where they had strong points they really excelled. These strong points were senior Aronzo Holland and junior Robert Daven- port in both the high and low hurdles, senior Randy Boyd in the shot put, and a great dis- tance squad led by senior Jeff Oberlies. Oberlies, after recovering from an injured ankle early in the season, ran the sixteenth fastest mile time at the state meet after having the twentieth fastest qualifying time. Holland placed sixth in the low hurdles after tying the school record earlier in the season. Davenport placed seventh in high hurdles. Coach Harpold was very proud of his team, and with good reason. At the spring sports banquet he said, " 1 caught myself say- ing, ' If we can win such and such event or do well in one we can win the state meet. ' When I end up talking and actually planning on winning the state meet, it ' s a great feeling to know that we are in the big league now. We are now one of the state competitors, one of the best in the state. " (JIM STEWART) TOP: Junior Jimmy Walker g rimaces in pain as he rounds the curve in a leg of the half-mile relay.

Boys ' Track-77 Netmen challenge «TTTTe surprised a lot of people. The other VV teams didn ' t expect us to be a conten- der, " commented co-captain Bill Price about the 1979 city tournament and boys ' tennis team. Not only was the team a contender but they also kept alive the long tradition of successful Howe tennis by posting a winning 13-7 record. After losing four of the 1978 varsity, the team finished third in a city tournament that could have gone to any of the top three teams. All team members advanced to the semifinals, with both doubles teams reaching the final round. The squad also reached the semifinals of a tough Southport sectional. As expected by coach Ron Finkbiner, success came slowly. Inexperience in singles was a big problem early in the season that gradually improved. Singles positions were held by Tim Gelarden, co-captain Bruce Har- ter, and Bill Price. Named to the all-city teams were numb er one doubles partners Larry Barnard and Jeff Johnson and number two players Tom Harton and Jim Bryson. For several team members the 1979 sea- son meant the end of four years of helping and competing with each other under the instruction of a great coach. Larry Barnard spoke for everyone when he said, " Playing on this team for Fink was an experience that will stay with me for a long time. " (TOM HARTON) ABOVE: BOYS ' TENNIS.

The team ended up with a record of 3-4 in dual meets against more experienced teams and placed well in the large invita- tionals. Not only did these girls give compe- tition to Southport, Ben Davis and Warren, their toughest competitors, but they also won the unofficial city meet and placed e- leventh in the state.

As a whole, the team finished with a sound 8-5 record; but one member stood out from all the rest. Senior Marcus Cole finished first in all dual meets; was city, sectional and regional champion; and placed thirty-fifth in the semi-state meet.

Every other week To be successful in any sport, a team has to be consistent in playing well. The varsity football team, it seems, played well only every other week and then against some overpowering teams. State-ranked Cha- tard and Martinsville were on probably the toughest schedule a Howe football team has ever played. After a good game against a hard-to-beat team, however, the Hornets ex- perienced a letdown and played below their ability in the next game. Highlights of the season were victories over Lawrence North and neighborhood rival Scecina. These were the only games they won, but a winning spirit was clearly seen on these nights. Most of the team felt that they would have won a few more games if they had played with more emotion in the other weeks. To add a little fun and excitement to the game, first-year head coach Richard Harp old put in the " elephant offense. " This special formation called for 300-pound tackle Jim Ping to move to the backfield and run the ball up the middle. It was only used in short- yardage situations and was usually success- ful. Team captains were Darin Ettner, Paul Haas, Boyd Minton, and Best Mental Atti- tude award winner Joe Sherron. MVP Kenny Jacob was the leading rusher with an average of 4.2 yards per carry. Junior Ted Wads- worth had the most tackles with 66. If the 4-6 reserve team had any future varsity stars, one of them could be junior quarterback Brian Shinkle. In the reserve game against Perry Meridian the score was tied with just a few seconds left in the game. Shinkle dropped back for a pass.

Prosh efforts defeated Good attitude and team spirit apparent- ly weren ' t enough for the freshman football team— at least not at first. Freshman football had a little bad luck, but the players didn ' t give up. They kept trying and late in the season trounced Perry Meridian, 36-0. First-year coach Otis Curry said, " The team played very well considering the size of the individuals on the team. " Curry believed that the team played up to and above their ability most of the time. Center and nose guard John Smart , felt that one of the reasons why they weren ' t winning was that they weren ' t playing toge- ther as a team. He also commented that in some of their games they played well but statistics didn ' t show in their favor. Coach Jim Lynch said, " We have a lot of fine players for the future, and we ' re going to catch up. " Both Curry and Lynch agreed that team spirit was positive, but it wasn ' t enough to produce a winning record. The season ended with a 1-7 record.

The junior varsity was also bothered by inexperience and finished with a 2-15 record. First-year coach Miss Betty Woods took over the position from Miss Jan Brown in addition to her job as physical education teacher. Assisting her was Miss Toni John- son, an excellent player who had been a volunteer coach in previous years. Miss Johnson provided the girls instruction through demonstration and taught them good volleyball skills. In spite of all their hard times the prob- lems were solved and things did get better.

Girls ' Swimming— 93 Ten good men Look what ten good men can do with dedication, determination, and sacri- fice. For the first time in Howe ' s history a swim team not only placed second in the city swim meet but also brought home a trophy. " If just one person had not done his best, we would not have placed second, " stated first-year diver Luke Hale. To most people this achievement would have been just satisfactory, but to the team it was just short of spectacular. Only two members, Jim Doninger and Mike Vittorio, returned from last year ' s team. Even after coach Wemple recruited eight new swimmers, more troubles plagued the team. Early in the season, Tech ' s pool broke down causing meets and practices to be cancelled. These cancelled meets were re- scheduled all at once. As always, the fact that all of the meets were away was hard on the team ' s morale. But in mid-season the inexperienced team showed how versatile their talents were. After recovering from a slow start, the swim- mers managed to defeat six teams. This rec- ord was the best record in a long time. As coach Randy Wemple put it, " I knew the team could really improve. It just took them awhile to figure it out. " (JIM DONINGER) TOP: After winning the 50-yard freestyle, top sprinter David Starr watches the next event.

In one meet the team lost by only one-fourth of a point. " They were talented, " said first-year coach Kim Massing, " but we just needed more people. " At the end of the season there were only six girls left on the team. It was very hard for the team to score well because the top three individual scores for each team contribute to the team ' s final score. Howe ' s girls were talented but not all of them per- formed in each of the four events. Sopho- more Amy Stewart was the (cam ' s only all- around performer. She was also the team ' s high scorer, and according to coach Massing her scores " really helped the team. " Inexperience was not a big problem he- cause all of the girls except freshman Sand} Coleman had been on the team last vear. Two of the returnees were seniors Cheryl Craig and Vicki Cunningham. Cheryl was outstanding in floor exercise and icki per- formed well on the balance beam. Sopho- mores Joy Thomas and Jennie McAtee com- pleted the team ' s personnel. Miss Massing did not have to struggle through the adjustments of being a first- year coach alone. Former football coach David Stewart helped the team out a great deal by helping with practices and video- taping the girls ' routines to help improve their scores. The entire team appreciated Mr. Stewart ' s concern. Because the team scores were so close and the team SO small, the girls didn ' t feel too had about a 2-8 record. However, coach Massing hoped to improve her team ' s record in future seasons b means ol recruiting and harder practices.

The team, made up mainly of freshmen with only two sophomores and one junior, scored best as a unit in vaulting.

Coach Brcrwn, a gymnast once ranked fourteenth in the nation, expressed his hopes for a team capable of being state contenders in a couple of years. Of course, this would involve a lot of work and perseverance and coach Brown felt fortunate to have athletes willing to better themselves. Freshman Tony Morris expressed the basic attitude of most of the team when he said, " It ' s the most fun I ' ve ever had in a sport.

Both the entire team and coach Jim Arvin believed " excellent senior leadership " was an important factor in their successful 7-4 rec- ord. Co-captain Kenny Jacob really got the team fired up with his pep talks, and Paul Haas and Jim Ping set the example when it came to running miles before practice. The high point for coach Arvin ' s team has always been the city meet, so a third place with no individual winners was a bit of a dis- appointment. It was at the sectional, how- ever, where the team ' s hard work really paid off. The team placed second and sent eight men to the regional. One of them was junior Brian Shinkle, who produced one of the most shocking sectional surprises. Though seeded fourth with a 7-13 record and having placed only third in the city meet, Shinkle pinned the Tech city champ and beat a Beech Grove wrestler to win the sectional ti- tle. " That ' s unheard of, " commented Arvin. The attitude of the wrestlers was another LEFT: Robert Jacob jumps for joy after defeating James Murphy of Shortridge in a city semi-final match. Jacob went on to place second. huge asset. These wrestlers were willing to work 100% and take everything the sport had to offer, so naturally they came out win- ners. " I have no complaints, " concluded coach Arvin. But there is more to Howe wrestling than just the varsity team. The reserve team coached by Paul Miller kept the varsity team on their toes because there was always a re- serve wrestler looking for a spot on the var- sity. Reserve city champ Bill Alexander was one reserve wrestler who sometimes wrestled varsity. Freshman Wilbur Shidler was anoth- er reserve city champ. Finishing with a 6-5 season record, they managed to give a lot of support to the varsity. There was a good crop of freshmen this year. Phil Ochs was one of the eight varsity wrestlers to make it to the regional, Wilbur Shidler won the reserve city title, and Keith Ransom was runner-up in the freshman citj meet. Coach Jerry McLeish was very proud of the team ' s 7-1-1 record and his niiilh winning season in a row. (JIM STEWART) ABOVE: Sectional heavyweight champ Jim Ping uses a half nelson to put his Roncalli opponent on his back. Wrestling-101 ft A man! " Coach Jim Arvin describes wrestling in four words, " Pride, Loyalty, Discipline and Guts. " These are the qualities of wres- tling and wrestlers that make the sport and its athletes so unique and they know it. When asked what type of person it takes to be a wrestler, the immediate reaction of al- most all the wrestlers was, " A MAN! " They know that wrestling is a very demanding sport. Whether it be running around the gym during lunch or long practices or 24-hour-a- day diets or anything else, wrestlers work hard at being wrestlers. It is basically an individual sport. The coach may teach the moves or teammates may provide encouragement to work harder, but it is the wrestler who pins his opponent. This is where the " Pride " comes in. It ' s strictly one-on-one on the mat and it ' s a great feeling to beat a guy and then say to yourself, " I am a better wrestler than you. " There is a favorite story among the wres- tlers about Olympic wrestler Dan Gable, who once ran in the middle of the night because he thought that his Russian oppo- nent could be running while Gable was asleep in bed. Now, of course, Howe ' s wres- tlers don ' t run in the middle of the night but they do work extremely hard. This is where the " Loyalty " and " Discipline " come in. It ' s not easy to eat nothing all day and then go to practice. Senior Kenny Jacob said, " To be a wrestler a person must have a lot of desire, determination and a strong will to work harder than the next guy. " All sports require large amounts of pride, loyalty, and discipline, but how many ath- letes would like to be wrestlers? Wrestling does not require a tall person or a fast per- son. It takes all sizes and shapes but they must be willing to work hard at being wres- tlers. They must have the " guts " to be a wrestler— to sweat pounds, run hours and work hard.

The scoring was provided primarily by sen- iors Gustavia Helm and Sheila Robertson and encouraged by first-year coach Otis Curry. Using their height advantage and strong offensive ability to make up for inex- perience and the adjustment to a new coach, the team had a satisfying 11-6 record. After an opening loss to highly ranked Warren Central, the girls won eight straight games. They were among the favorites to win the city title but lost to Arlington by a score of 50-58. Full of confidence, they later avenged their loss in an exciting overtime game. The team ended the season strongly but suffered a heartbreaking loss to tourna- ment champions Franklin Central in the first round of the sectional. Another bright spot in the girls ' program was the performance of the city champion reserve team. Possessing good height along with quickness and competitive attitudes, the reserves played exciting basketball. A- mong their strong points were a pressing defense and good shooting led by Angela Lee and part-time varsity players Deanna Pulley and Tracy Scroggins. With teamwork playing a big part, the girls ended with a 12-6 season record. The outstanding records of both squads made this the most successfull season for girls ' basketball at Howe.

Girls ' Basketball- 105 New contender Struggling through a long season and surprising most of Marion County were both a part of Howe ' s 1979- ' 80 basket- ball program. The stragglers were the fresh- men under first-year coach Greg Mingus. They lost a handful of close games and end- ed their season with a 5-13 record. The sur- prises were the varsity and reserve teams, which both overcame preseason obstacles on the way to strong finishes. The reserve team, coached by James Thompson, came out of the season with a very good 11-8 win-loss record. The youth of the varsity team was one of the reserve team ' s main problems because some of the strongest sophomores were needed to fill the varsity positions left by a high number of 1979 graduates. Once the team was set, promising freshman Robert Taylor and tal- ented sophomore Dennis Crawford emerged as the standouts. Willie Jake provided leader- ship and rebounding ability. First-year coach Ed McDowell took over a group of mostly inexperienced underclass- men at the varsity level. As expected, the local media didn ' t name Howe as a contend- er with so many new players. An optimistic McDowell said " anything around .500 " would please him. The 13-9 regular-season record surprised a lot of people, and with ABOVE: Promising sophomore Lawrence Hayes steps into the lane for an offensive rebound against Beech Grove early in the season.

Many of the close losses were suffered early. The close games developed poise which combined with balance and good shooting to turn things around. An overtime victory over Southport started a seven-game winning streak that didn ' t end until the city tournament final. In that game the Hornets lost by only five to second-ranked state pow- er Broad Ripple in front of one of this year ' s biggest crowds. McDowell attributed the good results to a group of players who " know what their jobs are. " Junior John Jointer and impressive sophomore Greg Cheatham were the scoring leaders most of the year, and sophomore Lawrence Hayes came closer to his scoring potential late in the season. Returning play- ers Erick Byrd and Virgil Gavin gave exper- ience to the team. As regular-season play came to an end, the team ' s recognition went way up. They had been called the best of the Kiddie Korps (best young team in the area) by a sports- writer for the " News, " and a second straight sectional championship was a very real pos- sibility.

Hm ' Basketball- 1 07 New era Replacing an institution isn ' t an easy job for anyone. For Howe ' s new varsity basketball coach, Ed McDowell, it wasn ' t so difficult. McDowell took over a strong bas- ketball program from long-time coach Jim Stutz, who went out with a sectional cham- pionship and an impressive 20-5 record. Mc- Dowell attributed the easy change to " a group of good athletes. " Although most of them had never played varsity before, thev still had been a part of the winning atmosphere. Most of the changes made were personnel ones. McDowell ' s policy of cutting was not popular with very many of those involved. He explained it this way: " I don ' t believe in keeping a senior if he is not going to be a starter or first off the bench. I ' d rather keep the sophomore if he is just as good. They get the experience for next year. " Aside from the average system changes, McDowell set up some definite goals for Howe basketball. He cited building the best basketball program in Marion County as the most important. Being the best would in- clude basketball camps, little leagues, clin- ics, and of course a winning record. The ultimate, he said, would be a state champ- ionship. (TOM HARTON) RIGHT: An enthusiastic Ed McDowell gets in- volved in his players ' progress.

Cheerleaders— 1 1 1 PRESSURIZED Everyone feels pressure from one source or anoth- er almost every single day in his life. This is a simple and rather obvious statement: friends, fam- ily, teachers— almost anyone— put the heat on at some time or another. The average high school student is constantly searching for ways to deal with these pressures, whether he is aware of this or not. As a high school stu- dent, feeling pressure is so com- mon that most of the time you just handle it— you don ' t think about what you feel or why you ' re pressured. Everyone copes somehow. The funny thing about high school is that there are people with special pressures, pressures incredibly intense and draining, who are hardly noticed at all as feeling any different. The athlete is subject to tremendous pres- sures the average person never even realizes as existent. Now some people may be tempted to scoff at this state- ment. " There ' s nothing different or special involved in being an athlete, " you may think. " There is no special pressure, nothing different at all. " But think about it. The fact is, athletics are among the most intense activities a person can participate in. An athlete continuously deals with pressures and problems the aver- age person never has to experi- ence. Just being an athlete is pressure in itself, simply because athletics take time. Time that could be spent at home, at work, or just out having fun must be spent instead for practices, games, and meets. As an athlete, learning to " budget " your time is essential for two reasons: (1) you ' ve got to work around your sport for dates, homework, TV, meals, sleep, etc., because these are life ' s necessities; and (2) if you don ' t budget your time, you ' ll start foaming at the mouth (which suggests you ' ve lost your mind). Practices for any sport can be very difficult, both physically and mentally. Most athletes can ' t even begin to count the number of times they ' ve felt pushed to their physical limits only to find a coach somewhere asking for just a little bit more, just one more lap, one more takedown, one more play. It is said that physical toughness is a quality of the mind; somehow the desire to be better must be stronger than the pain. And as an athlete you do feel the pain. In football you feel every hit, every tackle. You feel it after practice, you feel it when you wake up the next morning and you know that the same thing waits for you the next day, when you 11 be just as tired, just as sore. No one enjoys pain, and somehow the desire to achieve, to better yourself, has got to be stronger than the pain you feel. You ' ve got to pressure yourself to be better. Your coaches yell and scream at you until they ' re blue in the face. They make you do things you don ' t want to do, they make you tired, they make you hurt. They pressure you, they drive you, they push you to your limit and then they have the unbelievable ability to al- ways ask for more. After a time it seems the only way to deal with these pressures is not to think about them. You do what your coaches ask. You take one step at a time, one sprint at a time, one play at a time, one routine at a time, and try not to think about anything else. It be- comes awfully easy to quit or " cheat " ; the desire, the pressure from within, must be strong or else you ' ll cheat yourself, you ' ll quit, you won ' t be the best that you could have been. You ' ve got to concentrate on what you ' re doing at that moment, or else you ' ll invariably end up in trouble. As a student as well as an athlete, you find you ' ve got to keep your jport and school- work separated. If you let your mind stray in practice and begin thinking of the night ' s coming homework, practice becomes pointless because you ' re not get- ting out what you put into it. Conversely, if you start thinking of the day ' s coming practice in school, your studies will become weak and the school dav will become a long, drawn-out proc- ess of worry and anxiety. ou ' re pressured to concentrate as fully in class as in practice by both coaches and teachers. You can ' t let the two worlds overlap or else you ' re just asking for trou- ble. And then, after all the gruel- ing practice, all the conditioning, all the pressure you ' ve felt in school, at home, and in practice, comes the game or the meet you ' ve trained so long for. The pressures felt before are nothing compared to what you feel now. Pressure is what competition is all about; it ' s just one person saying to his opponents, " I ' m better than you. " For instance, imagine a foot- ball game. The hours of hitting, the miles of running, and the countless plays you ' ve run over and over— all comes down to one hour and a few plays. The pres- sure is on; the only question is, do you have the desire to win? You know you ' ve got to give every ounce of energy, every bit of yourself each and every play to win. And you also know there is another man across the line I pm ]12- " PRESSURIZED " who will give all he has to stop you. Even though you have ten other men on the field on your side, even though you have the finest coaches on the sidelines directing your team, it ' s just you and him. You are the only one able to do your job. You feel the pressure. By just being there, he ' s saying to you, " I ' m better. " And it ' s up to you to prove him wrong. One-on-one, head-to- head— this is what athletic com- petition is all about. And if you can ' t prove him wrong you ' ve lost. There is no time when the pressure is greater than when you have lost, when you know he was better. This pressure is often too much for many ath- letes. It ' s a terrible, sobering feeling that drives you onward the next practice, that burns in you the next game. The fear of losing is a pres- sure matched by no other. The desire to win, to many, is more important than the desire to improve the self. And perhaps it ' s just that desire, the desire to win, that overcomes the loss of time, the pressure of school, and the pain, physical and mental, of practice. Because if you win, if you take that man on head-to-head and come away burning with the knowledge that you ' ve beaten him, all the pressure and all the pain becomes as worthwhile as every minute that you experi- enced these feelings. The pressure of competition, the pressure to improve, and the pressure to win are what high school athletics are all about. The athlete knows all of these personally; there is only one way to cope, and that is to know you have given your best and come out a winner.

Hilton thanks seniors ' " ■Hi his senior class is the first class to sur- vive both senior guidance and orienta- tion. Although many words were exchanged, we could not escape senior guidance (which has been one of the key conversation pieces this year) and perhaps that was for the bet- ter. I believe senior guidance brought us in- to contact with seniors we had never met and put a few names and faces together, bringing our class together. Our class has been very enjoyable to work with and many fun and nostalgic memories have emerged from this year. We have ended one decade and made an excellent founda- tion for a new decade to build on. W e have all shared one thing in common— being a member of the class of 1980. Being president has been a challenging experience, but all of the officers were very cooperative and worked very well together. We all owe a thanks to everyone in this class for even thing. Thank you. (K RIN MILTON) Seniors— 1 19 After high school Every year after commencement a new class of Howe graduates have to decide a direction for themselves. This year as al- ways there were three or four choices which seemed the most popular. For many students college looked like the best choice for a variety of reasons. Pam Moriarity, who planned on attending Indiana Central University, said that " living close to home while being independent " was impor- tant to her decision. Others like Terri Engle, who was thinking about Prescott Center College in Arizona, planned on going farther from home. Scott Fifer said he was going to Purdue University because of its size and also because it " is one of the top engineering schools in the country. " One popular alternative to a college or university was some type of trade or techni- cal school. Robert Sanders, who was inter- ested in welding, was one of the many students who showed interest in the pro- grams explained by representatives from Clark College, Ivy Tech, and ITT Tech, the three local trade schools which made visits to senior guidance classes. Many people weren ' t turned on by the idea of more school. Cathy Morgan, for in- stance, wanted to continue her job at Blue Cross Blue Shield. Ray Miller said that quit- ting his job and attending the Naval Acade- my in Annapolis, Maryland, was a possibility. No matter what the decision was, most students tried to follow their interests and instincts for a better future after high school.

During the first week of July the annual Black Expo took place. It was defi- nitely an affair to remember. The week was filled with luncheons, beauty contests, a fashion show, a track meet, and more. In ad- dition to these events there were a two-day soul picnic and two nights of concerts. The purpose of the Expo is to make peo- ple aware of the talents, skills, and beauty our black citizens possess. It is geared for all people. Involved in this extravaganza of events were seven Howe students and teacher coach James Perkins. Mr. Perkins was the coordina- tor of the track and field meet. When asked to comment, Mr. Perkins said, " It was tough- er than I imagined. The event grew bigger than originally planned. If I never get ano- ther opportunity like this, at least I can look back at this one chance to use my talents. " Senior Marcus Cole and juniors Angela Montgomery and Sherry Curry were entered in various events of the track and field meet. Present for the event were Olympians R.afer Johnson, grand marshall; Joann Terry Gris- som, coach; and Larry My rick, official. In the area of beauty and talent, sisters Kay and Patrice Powell were beauty contest contenders. Although neither of them won, Kay was named Miss Congeniality. Both Kay and Patrice readily agreed the experience was rewarding. As the Expo got down to business, Ka- trice and Kevin Abel worked in their fami- ly ' s booth selling hand-made ceramics. When asked about their most exciting moment, Katrice immediately related the experience of meeting and selling an order to Bill Cosby. The Expo is one place to go during the summer to learn and have fun at the same time. It has several phases so that everyone can observe the versatility of our black citi- zens. (KELLY BATES) Seniors— 123 National Honor Society Last May, 47 juniors stood on the audi- torium stage to be inducted into the Howe chapter of the National Honor Society. This most prestigious organization was founded in 1921 " to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to ren- der service, to promote leadership and to develop character in the students of Ameri- can secondary schools. " This year ' s members truly fulfill this one basic hope. Those who know these members know their outstanding effort and versatil- ity. Students in the National Honor Society can be found on the wrestling and football NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY. Front row: Don King, Jim Stewart, Laura Reed, Joan Verbosky, Scott Fifer, Tom Harton, Susie Hildebrand, Bruce Harter, Bill Price, John Solberg. Second row: teams (one member was an all-city center and another received honorable mention), on drill team, on the cheerleading squad, and in a great many other activities at Howe. Many of the members have heard comments from the faculty that they are some of the best students Howe has seen in several years. In fact, three members maintain a straight-A grade average despite full and challenging schedules plus the burden of extracurricular activities. My year as an officer, along with vice- president Tom Harton, secretary Karen Mar- shall, and treasurer Terri Engle, has been a Karen Marshall, Kelley Kramer, Jay Boeldt, Jenny McClure, Ed Wiggington, Leslie Hermsdorfer, Sher- ri Jerrell, Mary Coleman, Larry Barnard, Mrs. Evelyn Keaton.

With the aid of Mrs. Keaton the members have been aide to explore interesting topics, prepare for col- lege, and even get a glimpse at collegiate life through a visit to the I.L. campus and a football game. Fm sure the students comprising this or- ganization will look back on their member- ship and find it as rewarding as I have found it, and they will realize that it was a goal which was truly worth working for.

Sponsored by the American Legion, the program helps high schoolers who do well or are interested in social studies to learn more about the election process and the duties of the elected officials of the state of Indiana. For one week in the sum- mer, after their junior year, these students participate in a large mock election. What makes it special is that the elected people actually do the duties of their offices. They write laws, arrest lawbreakers, and generally act as if it were a real state— but in miniature size. When I first found out about Hoosier Boys State, I didn ' t want to go because the pamphlet said to bring comfortable shoes to march in. I didn ' t want to go to boot camp. Well, I did end up going anyway, and I did have to march, but throw in a little disco march now and then and it wasn ' t half bad. Cecile Schlebecker and Karin Hilton went to Hoosier Girls State and Gary McPherson went with me to Hoosier Boys State. Cecile said that Hoosier Girls State really helped her out in preparing for Howe ' s own mock election in which she was a candidate for governor. Hoosier Boys and Girls State is really just a big government class, but it does have its time for having fun. After the election the coroner felt the urge to do his duty so he pronounced my feet dead. Later on he pro- nounced my whole body dead, but it was all right. I could go around and break all the laws because they couldn ' t arrest a dead man. All of us staters have talked to or visited the friends we made at Hoosier Boys and Girls State, and we could all tell stories about our special week. But to sum up our thoughts, it was a great learning experience and we made a lot of friends too. (JIM STEWART) Karin Hilton, Gary McPherson, Cecile Schlebecker, and Jim Stewart display their T-shirts from Girls State and Boys State. Seniors— 127 Wiser seniors In the fall of 1976 a new class hit the halls of Howe. At that time, most of us were exposed to a larger group of people at one time than ever before. As a group we had no identity except as " just freshmen, " but somehow the new experience was fun. In that first year we were introduced to school spirit by a basketball team with a 20-4 record and a crowd that went wild when Howe ' s Dancin ' Harry took the floor. There was much more to learn than school spirit, however. There were things that came only through experience. The experience came, as it always does, and during the course of four years the grass disappeared from Violet Hill, the band changed from average to successful, some people left Howe, some returned or came here for the first time, most of us learned who we could and couldn ' t trust, and some of us made lifelong friends. As a class we had several notable charac- teristics. We were the first to suffer through both orientation and senior guidance classes and we had a good record of building suc- cessful floats. On the academic side we had three people with straight-A grade point averages. The successes of the class of 1980 were special because of the extra effort given to overcome the forces working against them. The teacher strike at the beginning of the year got us off to a slow start and made it more difficult to have a successful year. The fact that more people in the class held jobs than in any other senior class made involvement difficult and getting together at one time nearly impossible. As far as unity goes, not everyone participated in the senior bonfire, picnic, or carwash, and not everyone went to the prom: but in some way everybody helped to turn the freshmen of 1976 into the wiser seniors of 1980.

At the beginning of 1980 the average price of one gallon of un- leaded gasoline was $1.07. This price was un- heard of just a few years ago, but because of American dependence on foreign oil the price of gas can go up at any time. (And has.) This high price of gas has affected the lifestyles of teenagers harshly. The teenage independence dream of owning a car has turned into a teenage nightmare. The cost of insurance, maintenance and gas has put the teenage car owner on the endangered species list. Only teens with jobs can hope to survive the gas crunch. But even then a large portion of the paycheck must go into the gas tank. Another good money source is the par- ents. Kids with generous parents have it easy and for some reason can ' t see why everyone is complaining about gas. If these money sources are unachievable, the only alternative is to cut down on driv- ing. In some cases a very considerable amount. Senior Jay Boeldt said, " Because I don ' l have a job I only drive when I have to. I don ' t drive to school because 1 live too close, so I ' d rather walk. " Leslie Cox said, " Sometimes when I ' m driving a carload of people around, they will all pitch in to help pay for the gas or 111 help pay if they ' re driving me around. " This method of paying for the gas is becoming very popular. The price of gas has also affected the style of cars that teens admire. Fast cars are usually the type of car that boys talk about or dream of owning, but more and more eyes are turning toward the gas-saving cars. Potential car buyers are now looking for the small car that has good gas mileage rather than the roomy, speedy gas-guzzlers. So the price of gas does and will affect teens in several ways, but what it all boils down to is that we all must cut down on our driving distance. Even if we have a high pay- ing job or a car with good gas mileage, the price of gas will continue to rise and will someday be TOO MUCH for everybody. It may rise to $1.50 or to $10.00 a gallon before we really take action, but sooner or later we will all change our driving habits by either volunteering to help conserve or being forced to conserve by the sky-rocket- ing pnce.

Anew trend in fashion has hit us right on our heads. Cowboy hats have come out of the closets and can now be seen more often than ever. Junior Mike Booher, who owns five cowboy hats, says that they " have been around for a long time but have just recently started popping up. " There are a lot of speculations about why cowboy hats are so popular, but most people believe that it is because the hats are differ- ent and new. Sure, the hats were worn 100 years ago in the old west and still today on the western ranches, but they are new for today ' s crowd. We can always turn on the TV and see John Wayne wear a cowboy hat, but to see a friend wear one at a basketball game is new and unique. Another new thing about cowboy hats is that Dale Evans is not the only girl ever to wear one. Cowboy hats are becoming more and more popular with the girls also. " You can wear them casually and still look stylish, " commented Sherri Jerrell. Another popular thing about cowboy hats is that no two hats are exactly the same. For every different personality there is a different hat. The hats come in many differ- ent styles, colors, fashions, and— of course- prices. Twenty to forty dollars is the price range for quality cowboy hats. They were first made out of felt, but manufacturers have developed a new fabric called dyna- felt that is cheaper but still good quality. There are many different accessories that can be added to cowboy hats to make them more attractive or suited more toward a per- son ' s taste. Belts, pins, and feathers are the most popular items. If feathers are your thing, they range in size from the tiny bird feathers to the long plume feathers. So, whatever your taste or style, you can always find a new cowboy hat that will let you express the real you. (JIM STEWART) Seniors— 135 Smasher a smash w hat were our favorite songs in the 1980 ' s and what radio stations played them? According to a survey of Howe students, WNAP and WFBQ were equally popular with WTLC following closely behind. Some AM stations were mentioned but didn ' t stand a chance against the FM stations. Among those receiving recognition were WNDE and WIFE. Most of these stations may attribute their popularity to their DJ ' s. Even though WFBQ, " the Album Station, " tied with WNAP, " the Buzzard, " for first place, " Buz- zard " disc jockey Adam Smasher was chosen as favorite DJ overall. The most common reason given for the Smash ' s popularity was, " He ' s crazy! " Other DJ ' s frequently men- tioned, such as WTLC ' s Jerry J. Walker, were said to have good personalities. Of course, the music played by a radio station must be taken into consideration when choosing a favorite. Those that were chosen played our favorite songs and pro- moted our favorite groups. " Tusk " by Fleet- wood Mac and " Take the Long Way Home " by Supertramp were two of the songs and groups chosen as favorites. Released in late 1979, the songs were big hits and were fre- quently played by disc jockeys everywhere. So the radio stations kept on competing with one another and playing our favorite music whether it was pop, country, rock, or soul. (PATTI STANLEY) WN AP ' s Adam Smasher expresses his gratitude after being chosen favorite DJ in a survey of Howe stu- dents.

We cannot play the role of the young adult all the time. Some- times teenagers like to fall out of young adulthood back into the world of the little kid. Sometimes reading the newspaper com- ics or watching the Saturday morning car- toons lets us forget our troubles for a while. Watching Bugs Bunny make a fool of El- mer Fudd lets us remember what it was like to be a little kid. No worries. No troubles. No hard schoolwork. We didn ' t go to work, we went outside to play. And we hated the opposite sex instead of struggling through a crush or a broken heart. The life of the little kid was the easy life. Cartoons and comics are the release valve of our pressures and teenage troubles, but they also bring us back to reality. " These cartoons are stupid. How can my little bro- ther stand to watch this trash? " Yes, those were the days, but those days are gone and all we can do is remember.

These students are Paul Haas, Karen Marshall, and Laura Reed. There are many students who come very close to having straight A ' s but one B makes a huge difference. Just one B on a semester grade ruins their great records. " To be a straight-A student you should use the 3D system— Desire to learn, Deter- mination to be a good student, and Devotion toward your goals, teachers, and classes, " stated Laura Reed. " It ' s all a matter of personal pride, " stated Paul Haas about his dedication toward school. " I need the good grades for college. " To receive straight A ' s takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. " Many times I stayed at home to study instead of having fun but I learned to budget my time be- tween the two, " stated Karen Marshall. On top of all their academic achievements they have all been involved in school activi- ties. Paul was on the wrestling team and was this year ' s all-city center in football. Laura has been deeply involved in the music de- partment and went to France in the LU. honors program for the summer. Karen was active in many school clubs, a department assistant, and production manager of the HILLTOPPER. Naturally, all three were ac- tively involved in the National Honor So- ciety.

Three-fourths of the drinking students polled said they drank while driv- ing or as passengers in a car. When more accidents are caused by teenage drunken drivers than any other age group, we can clearly see that teenage drinking is a huge problem. What are the reasons and motivations for under-age drinking? The TOWER discovered many. Among these reasons, parental influ- ence may be a great factor. According to the survey, three-fourths of the students who drink have parents who drink as well. Peer pressure also plays a part in the deci- sion to drink. " I feel out of place when my friends ask me why I don ' t or when they try to push it on me, " admitted a sophomore to the TOWER reporter. Possibly the most popular reason for drinking among minors is the psychological boost it gives. When a teenager takes a drink, it gives him confidence, helps him lose his inhibitions, and gives him acceptance from his drinking peers. Despite efforts in alcohol awareness directed toward teenagers and higher legal drinking ages in several states, alcohol remains the number one drug abused by minors. Until alcohol is made less available to teenagers or teenagers themselves can be convinced that drinking is harmful, it ap- pears that under-age drinking will continue. (JIM STEWART) Juniors— 145 Chewing gum Ct hewing gum is used both as a noun and as a verb; therefore, when I speak of the act, I will refer to it as " gum chewing " and when I speak of the product, I will refer to it as " chewing gum. " In a poll of Howe students, most said they chewed gum frequently, while very few students stated they never chewed gum. The reasons given by students for this ac- tivity or habit varied widely. Some stated they chewed gum for the flavor; some stated it was simply because they like gum; a num- ber stated they really didn ' t know why they chewed gum. Other typical answers were, " It ' s better than smoking, isn ' t it? " and " I think it ' s kind of a nervous habit. " This last comment comes closest to hit- ting the nail on the head. Gum chewing is a lot like smoking; it helps relieve tensions and can become a nervous habit, according to neuropsychiatrist Dwight Scheuster. In any event, gum chewing, like baseball and apple pie, is typically American. Al- though many adults chew gum, it seems to be much more popular among minors. Gum chewing is not considered truly harmful but little good can come of it. Claims that it will keep your teeth clean and your breath fresh are not well founded, according to doctors and dentists. Chewing gum is not digestible so, of course, it is not a good idea to swallow it. Disposal of chewing gum is frequently a pro- blem. Some students have the practice of parking their used chewing gum under the table, a chair, or desk. The gum should be folded in a piece of paper and deposited in a wastebasket after you are through with it. If you are going to chew gum there are certain rules which should be obeyed. Ob- viously you should not chew while eating; you should not chew while speaking in pub- lic or in the classroom; it is not a good idea to chew gum if it is offensive to your date. If you must chew, pick an appropriate time and place, or better yet give up the practice altogether. You won ' t become a litterer and the only people who might complain are the manufacturers, since it is a big business, but they can make it on other products. (MARK STEWART) TOWER staffer Mindy Bemis enjoys her bubble gum as she types up her story.

The year began with a flood that caused thousands of dollars worth of water damage. The origin of the water was finally traced to several fire hoses which had been turned on by someone during the night. Midway through the year, two fires were simultaneously set in two boy ' s restrooms. A lot of controversy was raised since the fires were set during the school day and the building was not evacuated. No fire alarms were even pulled. Tire tracks on the yard leave obvious evidence that vandals have been at work. Along with these incidents, the usual acts of rowdiness occurred. Graffiti on the building and on sidewalks around the cam- pus and tire tracks where there should have been grass were common sights. Crumpled soft drink cans and broken beer bottles also gave the outside of the building an unappeal- ing appearance. No matter how tight security is, though, most of these acts of vandalism cannot be prevented without benefit of a barbed-wire fence. This is really unfortunate because these vandals are infringing on the rights of other Howe students.

TTCThv would anyone get up and go to ™ ™ church at 6:45 a.m. every Wednesday? For many Howe students the answer, of course, is Breakfast Club. For those who can get up early enough, it is an enjoyable and personal experience. The size of the group ranges anywhere from 25 to 40 people. It is led by two counselors who, each week, have some idea that they want to get across. They do this by way of plays, skits, songs, or question-and- answer sessions. Topics of discussion con- cern different things, sometimes religious and other times just things like attitudes toward parents, friends, drinking, and other issues. Sometimes these ideas are a little crazy. Once, after a parade of follow-the-leader was held outside the church, the members were asked if anyone would go out and do the sa me things by themself. When only a few raised their hands, it proved that we tend to do what the group does. These sessions sometimes have members looking into themselves for answers to ques- tions that they rarely, if ever, ask concerning their own values or beliefs. The group leaves the church sometimes seeing a side to themselves that they never knew existed; and when that happens, that is the meaning and the success of Campus Life ' s " Breakfast Club.

True, it does take time to get used to the braces; but a lot of people say that they just think of how they are going to look afterward. Tina Hughes declared, " I ' m glad that I have braces because I like straight teeth, but I ' ve had them too long! " How long does it take to straighten your teeth? It really de- pends on attitude and the amount of work required. Denise Friddle commented on how much it cost to get them but felt that the money was not the only cost. " Sometimes your mouth is very sore, and you can ' t eat certain foods. " Junior Mary Vespo, who ' s had her braces off since April of 1979, felt that they were worthwhile. She said if something happened and she had to get her braces back on, she would definitely have the work done. She al- so commented that her teeth are very impor- tant to her. Most high school students value their looks and feel that they arc happ with braces because of the results.

Fear of the un- known is the most probable cause of the " first date jitters. " However, other factors may enter into the fright of the evening. The guy may expect the worst and think that his date is going to laugh at him due to his lack of a driver ' s license and the sight of Mother driving. The girl is just plain scared of everything. Will she make a good impres- sion or will the pizza topping end up in her lap? Of course, the question burning into both of their brains is, " Is it REALLY ac- ceptable to kiss on the first date? And if it is, is it really necessary? " How to dress for the occasion poses still another problem. If Mom and Dad ope n the door to greet a guy in a monkey suit and suddenly Daughter tromps down the stairs in her favortie pair of beat-up Levi ' s, some em- barrassment is bound to occur. Another big problem seems to be com- munication. The embarrassing lulls in con- versation that so often come about during that first date need to be filled with some kind of noise, even if it ' s just, " Nifty shoes you got on there. " " Thanks. I really dig that sparkly shirt. How do you suppose they make that gold thread anyway? " " Um, I couldn ' t tell you. ... " And so on. Now, if all of these catastrophes are enough to scare the prospective date right out of his her Hush Puppies, it should be made known that very few first dates have ever proved fatal. If this was so, though, it could probably be considered a mercy kill- ing. Death almost seems more desirable than being greeted at the door with a chorus of " Well, come on, tell us all about it! " from Mom, Dad, Sis, Little Brother, and Spot the dog. (PATTI STANLEY) Many long-lasting relationships first develop in high school.

My first day at Howe was an exciting but average day. Exciting because it was my first day of high school and every- one is excited about his first day. But average because nothing really exciting ever hap- pened. It was a day of going from one class to another, sitting down, and looking stupid. They had nothing for me to do. Once in a while I would get lucky and get a little work- sheet of things to do that I had learned in second grade. At least it was something to pass the time. Once I had sat through my first couple of classes, it was time for me to meet Howe ' s cafeteria. That was the most excitement I had encountered that day. I finally got to do Freshman Tamala Washington hesitates before eat- ing a Howe cafeteria lunch. something— EAT! But after getting my food it wasn ' t that exciting any more. So I ate what I liked and gave them back the rest. Then I sat there and talked with my friends like I had done all day. The bell rang and I ' d had my first Howe lunch. I had to go to my next class and was back to the same thing. Come in, sit down, and look stupid. And that is what I did for the rest of the day. My day finally ended. I went home and told all my family what a boring day 1 had at high school. And later I wondered to myself. " Is going to high school going to be like this all the time?

Slogans are pounded into our brains so often that it becomes a natural thing to go around hum- ming the catchy little tune to one of these jingles. Thus is commercialism. Bombarding us with slogans is obviously a successful way to sell a product, and many people go as far as to take sides in the matter. Those who have joined the " Pepsi genera- tion " complain that Coke is " too strong and sweet. " However, those who have chosen to " add a little life with Coke " agree that Coke is more available and also tastes better. But is there really a difference or has the advertising industry done it again?

" " I ' m going home after seventh; I can ' t stand my eighth period class. ... " These statements and many others about missing an assignment, or " cutting, " are all too familiar to Howe stu- dents and faculty. Cutting is an easy way to get out of taking a test or to avoid a certain teacher. However, even if the student doesn ' t get caught, and many don ' t, he will probably pay the price later on in one form or another. Occasionally, a student will cut an entire day of school. Most likely though, he will cut only one or a few classes. Where students go while cutting also varies greatly. Some only go as far as the parking lots while others go out for lunch or to other places off the school campus. The current punishment system has failed to discourage cutting. Teachers complain that the student body realizes the ineffec- tiveness of the system, and the cutters con- tinue to miss class without suffering the consequences— at least for now.

You can almost hear the words " Let ' s see YOU do it " as year- book advisor Dale Dinkens watches his staffer slave. Using another style, Jody Hancock turns into a " reg- ular crazy " after school to accommodate her role as International Club sponsor. No purple ink I ' ve been involved in several different clubs in high school, and no two are run exactly alike. The personality and enthu- siasm of a sponsor can make the difference between the success and downfall of an or- ganization. Not every teacher is suited for this position. It takes a certain blend of de- termination, responsibility, and plain crazi- ness to take charge of a group of students as diverse as those who wander the halls of Howe. A sponsor is the person who needs to say, " No, you CANNOT print the yearbook in fluorescent purple ink, " but at the same time, " Yes, if you really want an intramural basketball program, YOU can do it! " He must know the ins and outs of getting the school bus or financing the purchase of a new stereo. Ultimately, the sponsor must be able to answer the question " What should we do this year? " when 35 grinning faces decide they haven ' t a clue as to the purpose of the International Club. Observing sponsors in action, I have found that each one has a different leader- ship technique. Sometimes a group leader simply takes charge of running the organi- zation himself. Others choose to appoint leaders from within the group. In either case. the advisor still holds the final " veto power " on any club ideas, and with fertile teenage minds in charge it ' s safer for him to be in touch with all the actions of the group. The sponsor will be less likely to suffer a fatal heart attack if he knows in advance that the National Honor Society is staging a sit-in in the principal ' s office. Never underestimate the importance of a sponsor! He may avoid his " groupies " like the plague during the day, but the moment the meeting, practice, or work session begins it ' s amazing how well they work together. If a teacher has the nerve to try out this posi- tion, he can become a very important part of a student ' s school life. Kven with all of the work, responsibilities, and mental health hazards of the job, 1 have never found a sponsor who was not appreciated and did not get enjoyment Irom his work. (K KK MARSHALL) Staff- 181 182— Closing 1980- A year for banding together « f anding together " seemed JUim be a need the American people felt in early 1980. This feeling was caused by several cri- ses that hit the U.S. around that time. In early November, the U.S. embassy in Iran was seized, shocking the American public. Fifty hostages were taken by radical student followers of the Ayatollah Khomeini. The pur- pose of this act was to put the students into a position to de- mand the return of their de- posed Shah from exile in the United States for trial. But it was a long wait. It was well over 100 days before an agreement for the release of the hostages was attempted. Even at year- book deadline it was still uncer- tain if and when the hostages would be returned home. Meanwhile, in the country of Cambodia, death and starvation struck thousands of farmers and their families. The blame for the lack of food was placed on the Cambodian government, which prevented trucks of food and supplies from groups of con- cerned Americans from reaching the people. On December 25, we began to hear about the Russian in- vasion of Afghanistan. This was taken as a real threat to the U.S. because Afghanistan is so close to the oil shipping lanes and the Persian Gulf. A few days after the invasion, President Carter began to en- courage an American boycott of the Moscow Olympics if the Russians didn ' t pull out of Af- ghanistan by February 20. The deadline was not met so it looked as if the U.S.A. would not enter the games. With the chance of a possible confrontation with Russia, Pres- ident Carter also decided to recommend that Congress rein- state draft registration. This time the registration was likely to in- clude women as well as men. Draft registration was a heavily discussed topic at school, espe- cially among the juniors and seniors. Even though the decisions made by President Carter were not appealing, everyone still seemed to be behind him. In an election year, this support was very helpful in Carter ' s re-elec- tion campaign as he led most of the early state and national sur- veys. Not only was it a rough year for the world, but it was for Howe too. As the school year progressed, Howe came upon its own tragedies. Many believed that the an- nual Brown and Gold dance was to become a lost tradition. There were very few tickets sold in ad- vance. But on the day of the dance sales picked up. Even so, attendance and profits were way down. A computer breakdown be- tween semesters almost caused the spring semester to be de- layed a few days. Counselors spent hours that Sunday to pre- pare programs for the students. It was a close call, but students were able to pick up their pro- grams on Monday morning in time to start their new schedule- that same da) . Fire alarms caused one of the biggest commotions all year. The fire alarms had been turned off for a long time. Criticism from the fire marshall forced the ad- ministration to turn the alarms back on. When the story was published in a citv newspaper, there was a surge of false fire alarms with as many as 30 in one day. The majority of the .stu- dents were quite upset about the whole issue, including the false alarms. Most felt that " burning bodies were not a joking mat- ter. " " Banding together " against a common problem was a big part of 1980. Although strength in numbers wasn ' t important b itself, real togetherness in num- bers was something that had been lacking in our way of living for a long time. (LORI SMITH) Closiiig-183 During the past year a lot of bad things happened, but concerned students and teachers made it a pretty decent one by co- operating with each other. Without patience and understanding, the year could have been a lot rougher than it seemed. When high school students, sponsors, and coaches are involved enough to give up free time to be at school to accomplish something that the whole school can be proud of, they really care. Caring was the key to success all through the trouble-plagued year. Although many individual goals were reached, the " key " was used to benefit all in the common cause— to end a year with a bad beginning success- fully—and we did it. It takes a lot of effort to make something great, and because we cared 1980 worked.
