Behind all of these things that are import- ant to the students are some very dedicated women. Virginia McClellan, attendance clerk, has worked at Howe for ten years. She takes care of answering the phone calls from par- ents reporting absences. She composes the attendance list. Mrs. McClellan said that she also acts as a receptionist. " I spend half my day direct- ing students. " She said that she took her job because she thought students needed some- one easily accessible to them to answer ques- tions. Mrs. McClellan is the mother of two chil- dren and the grandmother of three. Mrs. McClellan and her sons and their wives all were graduated from Howe. Mrs. McClellan likes her job. " I love being with the kids. If I didn ' t like it I wouldn ' t be here. I ' m sure not doing it for the money. " Deanna Byrd, curriculum clerk, has worked at Howe for seven years. Mrs. Byrd explained, " My primary func- tion is to get all of the data together to send to data processing. " She sends down all of the schedules and report cards to be pro- cessed. During the summer she calls the stu- dents who have schedule conflicts, and helps them straighten out their problems. Mrs. Byrd said she really enjoys that part of her job. She worked in the guidance office her first three years at 1 lowe. " I don ' t regret the change of jobs; I just miss the kids a lot, " said Mrs. Byrd. She en- joys helping the students and helping with senior activities. Mrs. Byrd crochets in her spare time and reads " every spare moment. 1 read big books. I enjoy novels. I read on my lunch break and when I finish my work at home. " Mrs. Byrd is also Vice-Principal Bruce- Beck ' s secretary. She said she thinks she en- joys her job more because she has such a good boss. " It is very interesting (her job) and it ' s a challenge: working out a new master sched- ule is like working a puzzle. " Beatrice Adams, guidance clerk, will have worked at Howe four years in August. Mrs. Adams said her job is " mostly working with seniors. I put things together for counselors, and I send transcripts. " She said that she likes her job because " I gel to see different kids. It ' s (her job) always something different, not routine. " The mother of four enjoys watching T.V. and reading. " 1 graduated from Howe. 1 think it ' s pret- ty great, " said Mrs. Adams. Mrs. Adams feels that the attitudes of stu- dents have changed. " When I was in school we did what we were told. Today students express their own opinion. " We the graduating seniors would like to thank these women and countless other staff members for all of their help throughout our four years at Howe.

As always, the school received recognition for the efforts of its students. Student Life-69 Luck changes T3rown and gold, crazy dress-up, new - - wave, backwards, and bum out days were the signs of homecoming week. The week-long anticipation of students led to a victorious Friday night. Amy Stewart was crowned queen at half- time of the football game by reigning queen Trinia Cox with Annie Scott as first runner- up. Later, at the traditional after-game dance, Keith Ransom was crowned the 1982-1983 king and D. J. Waterman was first runner-up. A cheering crowd of loyal fans helped the Hornets win their first homecoming game in several years. The team ' s determin- ation paid off with a 14-12 victory over the Broad Ripple Rockets. The victory was a crowning touch to a memorable homecoming.

Rumors ended Rumors heard all year were ended when the final decision was made, bringing mixed emotions from both faculty and stu- dents. And, of course, the class of 1983 was glad to be graduating in lime. Nevertheless, after considering the idea from every aspect, the final decision was made to increase the class period from 40 to 55 minutes. This change was made in hopes of im- proving the I.I ' .S. educational system. Thus, not only will students be spending more time in classes but they will also need 38 credits to graduate by 1988. And instead of September, students will return to school from summer vacation in August with school letting out the following May instead of June. Because of the 55-minute periods, the school day will last from 8:10 to 3:10 with seven periods instead of nine. Lunch will be only 25 minutes, while the other half of the period will be spent in i lease is negotiable only r jun Like dropping any old habit, this change is somewhat hard to accept and most stu- dents consider it a serious injustice to stay in school 45 minutes more than usual. Like- wise, the advantages of this change are de- batable. Many students and counselors be- lieve that a good student will succeed re- gardless of the situation and an indifferent student will do what he wants as well. On the other hand, many teachers and adminis- trators agree with the comment, " If you spend more time on what you ' re doing you ' ll do it better. " However, only time will tell the actual difference. In the meantime, students will just have to adjust to longer days and shorter lunches.

A gorilla that operates W a computer and attacks licr husband? It is hard to believe, but a well-known teach- er at Howe is claiming to have wed a gorilla that lives at home in a padded cage. True or not, most kids fall for it as part of the nu- merous experiences of social studies teacher Ron Finkbiner. But this rumor is only a small part of the information provided through Howe ' s active social studies department. Besides the re- quired classes, most students enjoy taking international relations, world civilization, psychology, and sociology because of their activities, information, and highly qualified instructors. In international relations students look forward to the annual class trip in the spring. Some of the students have visited such places as New York City, Montreal, and ihington, D. C, and plan to visit Londoi I year. Another event of the class was Middle East summit conference. This true- to-life review of the current situation offered the chance to propose solutions and negoti- ate with mock Middle-Eastern leaders at the conference. Two disguised Arab sheiks also participated, sporting their trademark cans of " Pennzoil 1 O-W-40 " motor oil. Law day, the annual mock election, the Roman banquet, and " Roaring Twenties " experiences are also a part of the social studies activities which make the classes ben- eficial and exciting. These added attractions, as well as the expected notelaking, tests, and research papers make Howe ' s social studies classes a challenge and a worthwhile oppor- tunity. Even " Judy the Gorilla " Finkbiner would agree. (KIM BALLARD) TOP: Every clash hecomes a tJi aii- Biology students try to tight .sleep.

This com- pany is the North Central Association, which evaluates Howe every seven years. The com- mittee will begin their study in September for several days. During this time they may observe classes and inspect facilities as they consider the school ' s accreditation. Self-evaluation, preparation, meetings, and reports are the tasks our staff and stu- dents have been engaged in throughout the year. Committees were formed and every area of the school was evaluated including the building and grounds, the curriculum, the classes, and even the cafeteria. " Howe has consistently ranked high on this evaluation and regards the self-examina- tion as a chance to stop and consider our progress and problems as well, " commented John Ervin, chairman of the North Central evaluation at Howe.

Complete with a primary elec- tion, state party conventions, and a general election, this event was a chance for stu- dents to experience what a real election is like. The highlight of this occasion is the traditional rivalry between the Federal- ist and .Nationalist parties. Although these parties have no political significance, their competitive spirit is expressed through campaign posters, conventions, and subtle hints of party propaganda— just like " the real thing. " But instead of crooked poli- ticians or empty promises, sincere juniors and seniors try to express the voice of the students through their party ' s platform. Party campaigning is at its peak the day before the general election and culminates with the election of the governor of Howe and other officers. For the past few years the Federalist party has been in power, and this year proved no exception with a straight tick- et victory over the Nationalists. But, who- ever wins or loses, the mock election is always an exciting chance to gain polit- ical experience and express the spirit of competition.

Battalion Commander Lorin Smith (the ranking cadet) ran the corps under the super- vision of the Senior and Assistant Senior Ar- my Instructors. In hisabasence Battalion Fx- ecutive Officer Mark Whorton would take o- ver as the commanding cadet officer. They had help with running the unit. The Battalion Staff is responsible for the majori- ty of the work. The Staff consists of four sections. The first section deals with admin- istration and personnel. Section two is re- sponsible for security, intelligence reports, and files. The third section encompasses op- erations and training. Then there is the sup- ply, section four. First Sergeant Joe Napier, the Senior Ar- my Instructor, teaches the advanced clai He expects from those cadets a definite on- going development of leadership ability. He defines development of leadership as " the a- bility to effectively teach individuals or groups of students so that they better un- derstand tin; subject. " From the freshman classes, Staff Serjeant Phillip Squires expects a development of an appreciation for ethical values and principles which underlie good citizenship. Those val- ues and principles that he looks for are in- tegrity, responsibility, and respect for con- stituted authority. At the same time he ex- pects the ongoing development of leadership potential, which is inherent in every individ- Howe started an Adventure Training Team known as the Rangers this year. Under the command of Cadet Captain William McGowen, they trained with other Ranger cadets from Manual and Northwest High Schools in various infantry-type training. The Howe corps of cadets earned the title onor Unit " for its efforts put forth in the federal inspection last year. This inspection takes place bi-annually to insure that the corps is running efficiently . Overall, this year has been one of the best for Howe students in ROTC. (C CAPT.

Council members felt the students were not very enthused; therefore, only a few of the most needy families could be helped. Nevertheless, the student council continued to help others by visiting the Rit- ter Healthcare Center for their annual Christ- mas party. The student council organizes after- school dances and the senior alumni game to raise money. This was the first year that tin- student council sold Howe sweaters, jackets, and shirts. They hope to be able to repeat selling these items in future years. There were few major changes this year; however, plans have already been started for the 1983-84 year. Because of scheduling changes for next year, student council will not be able to have a regular class period as before. Therefore, the group will depend on working before and after school to get many of their jobs completed.

This isn ' t the only time I ' ve felt this way. The feeling began way back in late November when we missed our first deadline. This fear has stayed with me through our second and third missed dead- lines. Well, our last and most important deadline is only one day away and the fear is constantly growing. When I first took editorship, I had no idea that we could ever possibly get so far behind as we are now. I thought there would be no problems as we began with a staff of twenty-four. A few weeks before the first deadlines, the staff of twenty-four had nar- rowed down to a handful of people who were willing to work. It wasn ' t long until what was left of the staff was piled up to its ears and eye- balls with unfinished layouts. We still are up to our ears and eyeballs with layouts, but with the dedicated staf- fers that are still around, then; could be some hope for the yearbook to be on time. I find it easy to tell who is on the staff for glory because when the time comes for the work to be completed, over one-half of the staff say their goodbyes. I wish to thank the staffers who stayed for the hardship of completing the HILL- TOPPER. These are the people that deserve the glory. (PORTIA GRAVES) HILLTOPPER-85 RIGHT: " TOWER " STAFF.

Because of budget problems, its format was very different than the proceed- ing year. The paper was issued monthly in- stead of triweekly, increased from 12 to 16 pages, and reduced in size to an 8 2 by 11 newsmagazine. To adapt to these changes, the staff had to relearn many minor details as well as ma- jor aspects of the papers production. Staff- ers had to constantly ask how to set a cap- tion, where to put down a folio or what width a column should be. Despite these problems, a capable and experienced staff with many seniors put out a paper that at- tempted to report the news, comment on it, and show the human side of life at Howe. The effort that goes into producing a pa- per is an invisible thing to most readers; it is ge s similar to the rehearsing a choir or acting company does before giving a public per- formance. This is no fault of the reader, who iply cannot appreciate the sweat and blood (sometimes literally with the use of X-acto knives) that goes into each issue of the paper. Copy, lines, and pictures must be carefully examined for the slightest takes. The glory of it is that students, as in all other school activities, do this not for fi- nancial compensation (many times asking themselves why indeed they DO do it), but for more personal rewards. Seeing a story or picture in the paper, sometimes accompa- nied by a byline, gives a reporter or photog- rapher a fleeting feeling of immortality— a feeling that he has given a little piece of him- self to the paper that will live forever.

After weeks of practice and anxious moments, a diverse cast enter- tained a small but appreciative audience with an original look at the plight of a Southern preacher. Presented on stage November 5th and 6th was " Purlie Victorious, " a humorous portrayal of a Black sharccropping family written by Ossie Davis. The plot develops with Purlie Judson (Marcus Taylor) deter- mined to regain his family ' s inheritance from a stubborn segregationalist, Ole ' Cap ' n Cotchipee (Todd Kelley). Purlie summons the help of a naive maid, boisterous Lutie- belle Gussiemae Jenkins (Kim Ballard). With the help of his humble and hospitable relatives, Missy and Gitlow Judson (Karen Foster and Clifford Payne), Purlie is kept from the sting of the captain ' s whip and finally triumphs. Although racially oriented, the play has a universal message. As the money is restored in the end, the theme rings with the victory of the " underdog " and equality of all people. Behind the scenes, the importance of time and teamwork was well understood by November 5th. In earlier rehearsals it was fun to read through candid lines and get the feel of the characters. But, as time ran short, the preparation became more than fun. Time seemed to fly as lines had to be learned, minor details had to be adjusted, and rehearsals were needed to polish the whole act. Despite the rehearsals, no practice can totally prepare for the experience of live performance. Between the nervousness and the last-minute preparation, teamwork man- aged to overcome the crises. Less than two weeks before the play, stage director James Lynch almost actually " broke a leg " but broke his foot instead. Then, on No- vember 5th an actor became ill and needed to be replaced. Nevertheless, the show went on as Mr. Lynch returned in time to super- vise his crew and Kirk Iluehls took on the role of Charlie Cotchipee two hours before the play. Iluehls, who had never read the script, was the least nervous of the cast— everyone else was nervous for him. Iluehls credits his instinctive performance, which was a success, to his experience in front of people. He felt, " it was no big deal. " Fingers were crossed and cues were whis- pered backstage as Purlie and Gitlow ad-libbed about comic strips and apple pie (which was actually sweet potato pie). But the audience went along with their creativity. After it was all over, Missy ' s sweet potato pie was gone, and the loads of make-up used to change racial identities had been washed away, the audience had witnessed a unique performance with a universal message. The cast and director Shirley Smith felt the memories and exper- ience were well worth the six weeks of practice, minor chaos, and stage fright.

Something for everyone One of three math clubs sponsored at Howe, Mu Alpha Theta was re-activat- ed in April 1982. A division of the National Math Honorary Society, its purpose is to " encourage, motivate, stimulate, and chal- lenge students into the world of mathemat- ics, " said sponsor Jackie Greenwood. Members, who are " A " or " B " average students, meet irregularly to share ideas, participate in math contests, or host guest speakers. Another of this year ' s activities was to recognize the " A " math students at the end of each semester with a certificate and a button. The officers of Mu Alpha Theta were Julie Wilkinson, president; John Lloyd, vice- president; Stephanie Bett, secretary; and Erika Steffer, treasurer. Another new endeavor at Howe, spon- sored by Francoise Miller, was the Computer Club. The main objective of the fifteen- member club was to meet regularly to dis- cuss the different aspects and uses of com- puters. Some of their activities for the year included demonstrating the Logo computer language at the Children ' s Museum, visiting businesses where computers are in daily use, and handling the reception ol ' guest speakers at Howe. In the future they hope to set up Saturday classes at which members tutor parents in the use and operation of comput- ers. The Computer Club officers were Laura Cruz, president; Greg Jett, vice-president; Brenda Roper, secretary; Giesell Boone, treasurer; and Joseph Moore, advisor-at- large. The third group, called the Math Club, was sponsored by Jackie Greenwood. It was organized for the freshmen and sophomores who are not yet eligible for Mu Alpha Theta. Their activities for the year included a math contest for basic and general math students to aid in boosting math scores and decorat- ing bulletin boards to get Howe students in- terested in math. They also planned to hold volleyball games for different classes and vis- it the Chicago Museum of Science and Indus- try. The officers of the Math Club were Angie Sheets, president; Angela Sommers, vice- president; Michael Hunter, secretary; and Tony Ferguson, treasurer. All three clubs, which are both social and educational, encourage participation and offer Howe students the opportunity to ex- pand their knowledge in the math field that is so important in today ' s " computer age.

Chess takes state again The Howe chess team had a surprising year. Despite the loss of three of last year ' s four co-national championship team members, the Howe team won the state for the fourth year out of the last five. The team, consisting of freshman Russell Steele, junior Matt Hause, and seniors Brent John- son, Kevin Yamafuji and Morgan Hause, won the Greenfield invitational and the Indian- apolis regional. The disappointment came with the loss of the city championship to Ar- senal Tech. Next year ' s team will be young and strong. Although it is doubtful the state can again be won, the team will be experienced players to be feared in coming years.

Bands show talent Halftime shows weren ' t the only per- formances Howe ' s marching band . In the spring of 1982 the band partici- pated in the Indianapolis 500 parade. Nine- ty-five band members and sixteen Hornet Honeys made this the largest band yet for Howe. They received national television cov- erage while crossing the checkered carpet. Band members new and old spent one week in August learning and sharpening marching techniques. After camp a total of forty hours was spent practicing on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Howe High School is one of the two Indi- napolis public schools which compete; with other bands. Howe participated in three con- tests this year. They placed sixth at the Law- rence Central Inhibition and fifth overall at the Central Indiana Marching Band Festival. They also received the highest scores in their class for music, general effect, flags, and per- in the Indiana State School Music Association regional contest. The band also performed for Indiana Central and Franklin College during their football halftime shows. Howe has two other bands besides the ching band. The pep band, which per- forms during basketball games and pep ses- sions, is a volunteer group. Only persons from A band may play. The stage band is a performing group only. It plays a variety of music from the big band era to present-day jazz. The group provided entertainment at the All-City Swing Choir Festival in April. (BECKY EARLY) BELOW: MARCHING BAND.

" The sixteen girls accompanied the marching band helping its general effect and adding dimension, " stated director Paul Nordby. With the girls ' help the band was able to receive high scores at the Indiana State School Music Associa- tion regional contest. Kim Hooks comment- ed, " I really looked forward to each per- formance. It ' s a great feeling to know that you are supporting your school. " A second tryout was held in the fall for the girls who wished to be on the dance team for basketball halftime shows. The girls were judged on dancing ability, composure, appearance, and enthusiasm. They received a new instructor, Mrs. Shirley Neal. Mrs. Neal has had extensive experience in dance and teaches aerobic dancing in Howe ' s evening division. The dances were the same as the year be- fore, but the girls spent much more time af- ter school and during Christmas break prac- ticing. Unfortunately, Mrs. Neal and captain Giesell Boone felt it was necessary to hold separate cuts for each performance because some girls were not thoroughly learning the dances. Practice attendance, attitude, and a- bility to perform the dance determined the decision. The cut only affected the next show. Mrs. Neal explained, " It ' s not all glam- our being a Hornet Honey dancer. " (BECKY EARLY) ! movements to dance forward. UPPER RIGHT: Senior Shauna Shields pauses moment and waits for her next cue.

Of the fifty-four singers in the concert choir, over half were seniors. A major change occurred this year in concert choir when the enrollment in that class dropped from seventy-one to fifty-four. Auditions took place in Decem- ber with the intention of cutting down the number in the choir, and second semester began with a new group. Music department chairman Tom Lewis explained that the new group was more " manageable. " The new choir achieved more precision and independence. Lewis remarked, " There was more self-control, and I think everyone learned that he had to contribute or we didn ' t have anything. " Lewis felt that this year ' s senior class would be missed, due to its size. " Gradu- ating this class will be like graduating the department. Rather devastating, " he com- mented. He expressed the hope that the underclassmen would fulfill their " con- siderable potential " and take up leadership positions in the vocal groups next year.

Vocal Music- 105 Groups split The Madrigal Ensemble of past years underwent a major change this year. While the group has been one combined or- ganization for the past several years, this year it returned to the split group of the past. This year more students were given an opportunity to participate in these groups. The expansion of the ensembles into two units created more spaces available for singers. One group sang pop music while the other concentrated on Renaissance and Madrigal music. Madrigal director Robert Bramblett was pleased with the performance of his group. " The kids did a very fine job. I think the split gave them a sense of identity. Having one group do both types of music spreads the kids thin. But I really enjoyed this year, especially our Madrigal feasts, " Bramblett commented. Music department chairman Tom Lewis, director of the Varsity Singers, remarked, " The change helped a lot of people. The less experienced singers learned to be lead- ers and to produce. We had an oppor- tunity to use a lot of talented kids. " (KRISTEN FREDERICKSON) -olers to participate in the Christmas TOP RIGHT: Varsity Singers dre program. ABOVE: CONCERT CHOIR.

Howe gives ' South Pacific ' Last fall Howe ' s music department pre- sented their version of " Snoopy, " a fun-filled musical about the Peanuts comic strip. The play is a series of small skits and has no main plot or conflict. The Peanuts gang consisted of Peppermint Patty (Paula Wright), Lucy (Claire Mills), Sally (Amy Kndslev), Charlie Brown (Stephen Enz), Li- nus (John Robinson), Woodstock (Kristen Frederickson), and Snoopy (Greg Brinkers). This was the first production of " Snoopy " presented by Howe. Music department chairman Tom Lewis chose " South Pacific " for the twentieth an- nual spring musical this year. The last pres- entation of " South Pacific " at Howe was in 1969. Mr. Lewis had never directed this mu- sical before so he was looking forward to this production. " Our annual musical pro- duction is not a fundraiser. It is a tradition, " he explained. " South Pacific " is about the romantic love affairs between Ensign Nellie Forbush and Emile de Becque and between Lt. Joe Cable and the lovely Tonkinese girl Liat. It is set on a Pacific island during World War II. Choosing the cast was fairly easy accord- ing to Mr. Lewis. " There were several people possible for each part— even a few surprises, " he stated. The reduction in the number of music students did, however, affect the mu- sical. " We didn ' t have an army on the stage like the years before, " he added. Although practice got started two and a half weeks late, Mr. Lewis felt the show went (BECKY EARLY) i V v 4 L A BELOW: Snoopy (Greg Brinkers) puts on a puppet show for his friend Lucy (Claire Mills).

Sports Most people know a school best by the reputations of its athletic teams, owe ' s athletes had a good year, conducting themselves well and producing excellent rec- ords. An unusual number of athletes and teams reached the state finals and received personal recognition. Sports-Ill Hornets sting foes What does it take to have a state finalist team? It takes a good coach, some tal- ented players, and a lot of hard work. And that ' s just what Howe had in 1983. Howe ' s girls ' basketball team made it to the final four, the first time in 17 years any eastside school had reached the basketball finals. The last time an eastside school made it to the fi- nals, Howe coach Otis Curry played for Tech in the title game against Michigan City El- ston. This was the first time any Howe team had reached the basketball finals and also the first time a coach had ever played in and then led a team to the final four. The season obviously went well for the girls this year. Winning the Howe Invitation- al and beating rival Warren Central— both for the first time— were big victories for the team. The only real disappointment for the girls was losing to Marshall in the second round of the city tournament. The Hornets ended their season with a record of 19-6— with the losses coming by a total of just 16 points, (continued) ABOVE: GIRLS ' BASKETBALL STATE FINALISTS.

There only a few dedicated fans who knew the po- tential the girls had and supported them through the season. When tournaments start- ed, newspapers stated that Howe had an al- most impossible route to the state finals and that they would never make it past the re- gional. With little competition in the sectional, Howe went on to the Center Grove regional with little trouble. Playing Southport in the first game, the girls were ready for a tough battle but came out with an easy 62-42 vic- tory with Teresa Jones scoring 25 points. In the final game the Hornets defeated Center Grove 52-43 on their home court for the re- gional title and the right to be part of the " sweet sixteen. " Defeating highly ranked Rushville and their 1,400 fans in the first game of the Ben Davis semi-state, the Hornets moved into the final game to play Brebeuf ' s defending champions. Tied at halftime, the girls came out playing hard in the second half and pulled out a 44-35 victory and the thrill of going to the state finals, (continued) ABOVK: Lynda Ward receives a warm welcom. from the junior varsity cheerleaders at the victor; banquet.

There was a close score through the entire game, with the bigge.-t lead only five points. The Hornets fought all the way to the very end. Behind by one point with just 14 seconds left on the clock, Howe passed the ball down the court and got off two good shots before the clock ran out of time. Both missed. The Hornets were defeated 47-46. " After the clock ran out of time and the scoreboard showed that we were down by one, I wished that we could play the last quarter over again because I know we could have won, " stated junior Sandy Hawkins. The team was disappointed by the loss but came back that night for the final game in high spirit— singing and dancing around the arena because they knew they were still champs. They had achieved a goal that all teams set out for. How did coach Curry feel about all this? " Actually, the season was a lot more success- ful than I anticipated.

Along with their spirit and desire to win ihev had confidence in themselves. " They ' re the best bunch of athletes in my ten years of coaching, " commented coach Errol Spears of the junior-dominated team. Three team members, seniors Charlie Mathews and Mark Hubbard and junior Nick Thompson, were chosen for the city all- star team by the Indianapolis Baseball Coaches Association. These three also had the highest batting averages for Howe and Mark hit seven home runs during the season. Mthough lack of pitching experience caused a few problems at the beginning of the ' 82 season, Randy VanDeventer and Nick Thompson strived hard to overcome this disadvantage. The team ' s speed and power enabled them to average nearly eight runs per game. Strong defense was another reason for the team ' s success. The varsity team played exciting base- ball. They concentrated during their games and set out to win. They finished the season with the school ' s top record of 17-9. (BECKY EARLY) UPPER LEFT: VARSITY BASEBALL.

The Hornets lost their first three games but raised their record to 10-11. This strong finish was the season ' s highlight. Unexpected players filled the gaps for those who did not reach their full potential. Robert Clay, a strong leader, played catcher and was a powerful hitter. Also adding their strengths were in fielder Dean Johnson and pitcher Tim Ballinger. " It takes time to produce a good team, but I have good quality athletes to work with, " Thompson commented. LEFT: Freshman Thomas Hindman sprints to first after hitting a line drive to the outfield. The freshmen were less fortunate than the reserves.

Although many players failed to complete the season, several showed promise for next year.

It was ded- ication and the ability to work together that made; the men ' s 1982 track team suc- cessful. Even though the team was small, it con- tained talent. This was proven as the Hor- nets took first in city and sectional meets and placed seventh in the state. Helping to lead the team in an outstanding season, senior sprinter Rick Jenkins broke the school record in both sprints and anchored the 400-meter relay team to a regional record. Other exceptional record setters included high jumper Brian Jones and the 1600-meler relay team of Juan Hutchinson, Robert Car- ter, Joe Folson, and Jeff King.

With city, sec- tional and regional championships already behind them, the 400-meter relay team of Joe Folson, Robert Carter, Brian Cilbreath, and Rick Jenkins also qualified for the state meet, placing third. Perhaps the only weakness was the short- age of participants in the discus and the longer distance races. However, the abun- dance of sprinters helped to make the team one of the powerhouses in the state.

The team ' s three top participants— Teresa Jones, Roxie Davis, and Donna Early— were subjected to injuries which caused the team to lose points in several events. Fortunately, enough points were scored by a large team to keep the dual meet record unblemished for the third consecutive year. In addition to a fine dual meet record, Donna Early and Vicki Glover qualified for the state meet. Vicki ended the season with a new school record and sixth place in the state. As a team, the girls finished a respecta- ble third in the city in spite; of key injuries. The team ' s greatest strength proved to be the enthusiastic attitude which prevailed throughout the season. " The kids were al- ways ready to go out and practice, " stated coach James Perkins.

Graduation of four key seniors had almost wiped out the team. Senior Sam Springfield and sophomore Jeff Taylor were the only returning lettermen. Without the people to fill the varsity positions, many of the young runners ran at the junior varsity level or as individuals. Even though the season seemed unsuc- cessful, there were several signs of promise. Top runner Jeff Taylor ran well in the city and sectional meets and qualified for the re- gional. Rookie Wendell Johnson became freshman city champ with Darron Crowe finishing close behind in fourth place. Soph- omore Ronnie Miller improved steadily and showed promise for next season as he placed seventh in the reserve city. Coach Greg Mingus predicted a good fu- ture for the oung runners and fell the addi- tion of one or two strong runners would make the squad a good team.

Not only did the team have the largest number of girls in its history but it also had an enthu- siastic, unified group. Although the team lacked experience, they wound up holding a record of 8-4 with the losses being to some of the best teams in the state. The team was the 1982 city runner-up with Alberta Campbell, Howe ' s number one runner, placing third overall. According to Coach James Perkins, sur- prises in the season were late-blooming sen- ior Angela Clark and freshman Kim Jointer, who ran extremely well, and senior Sandy Coleman, who was very consistent. Strong leadership from senior captains Julie Wilkin- son and Sandy Coleman was an asset to the team. Juniors Karen Hayes and Steph- anie Bett improved steadily throughout the season and played a big part in the team ' s success.

Good senior leadership and experience gave the Hornets an advan- tage over their opponents. For the second year in a row Howe ended the season with a 6-4 record. Contributing most to the strength of the team were the three-year returning letter- men. Suffering through a 0-10 season in 1980 made them perform better their jun- ior and senior years. A major asset was the balance between running and passing. Mel- vin Bigham, placing fifth in the all-time rec- ords of Howe, rushed for 764 yards. Quar- terback Scott Bell passed for 611 yards in his first year as a starter. Captain Keith Ransom was selected for the all-state second team. Bigham set a punting record with an average of 34.9 yards a kick. The most exciting game of the season was against traditional rival Cathedral. Despite the 19-16 loss the Hornets " played a step above the Irish in ability and intensity. " Adding to the excitement of the season was the 49-13 triumph over Madison. " Our goal for next year is to win our cluster and make it into the playoffs, " commented coach Harpold. (CRYSTAL SIEGMAN) CENTER: Senior Melvin Bigham breaks away from score a 22-14 victory.

Frosh show promise HP he 1982 reserve football team had a ■ = season just the opposite of the varsity. While the varsity had an abundance of run- ning backs, the reserves suffered from alack of offensive punch. The most satisfying mo- ment in a 1-9 season was the double over- time- victory over Northwest, which had bea- ten Howe ' s reserves badly the year before. The freshman team played well and finished the season with a 5-3 record. Weight and athletic ability were the major strong points of the freshman team. There were several players who weighed over 200 pounds. This helped the team excel in line play. Among the best players were quarterback Jeff Duncan, running back Jeff Reed, and defensive linebacker Clyde Spen- cer. " The group will continue to improve and will be one of the top football teams in the city by their senior year, " pointed out freshman coach Gerald McLeish.

That wasn ' t the only surprise. Natalie Ochs was a rookie, but she didn ' t turn out to be such a weakness after all. In fact, she was one of the key performers. " She was a total surprise, " stated coach Joe Vollmer. In addition, Tammy Bell broke the nine- hole record with a score of 44, and Debbie Brown shot 105 on the 18-hole course. Even through this was a building year, the Pike and Perry matches turned out better than the team had anticipated. Howe won the Perry match by one stroke, and the team score against Pike was only five strokes away from the school record. Coach Vollmer predicts that the experi- ence (a vital factor in both team and indi- vidual performance) will carry over and make the coming season a winning one. (EMILY E.

Soccer needs support Soccer is becoming the fastest grow- ing sport throughout America as it has proven to be exciting and inexpensive to -j play. Even though soccer is gaining popular- ity, however, high school soccer may have to wait awhile before receiving the recog- nition it deserves. As a great deal of work, effort, and ded- ication goes into soccer, Howe coach Dave Stewart would like to see the team get more support. Player Chad Roseman con- fided, " I think we should have more school support and we really need more people to watch the games. " Nevertheless, the team didn ' t let lack of support interfere as they concentrated to make the season a success. Besides concentration, the positive atti- tude among the team was a major contri- gone into each game thinking that we had a chance to win, " commented sophomore Jim Alvarez. Also, junior Rick Kiner op- limi lieally stated, " Even when we didn t win, we would just forget that game and get ready for the next game. " The best game proved to be against Carmel. " They had to work to beat us, whereas a year ago they pulverized us, " admitted coach Stewart. Everyone ' s goal was to beat the previous season record. They met this goal by defeat- ing North Central, a top-notch soccer- play- ing school. All of the enthusiasm made Howe ' s second soccer season something to be proud of.

Volleyball-149 Basketball rebuilds Losing seven talented seniors to gradua- tion left the varsity basketball team with a season to rebuild in size and strength. The team had an up-and-down season be- cause most of the teams that Howe played were senior-dominated and consisted of ex- perienced upperclassmen. Performing well in the opening game a- gainst fourteenth-ranked Warren Central, the Hornets held off the Warriors with a few sec- onds left in the game to win by a score of 49-48. The opening game was followed by sever- al uneven performances with the team hav- ing its worst game of the year against Ron- calli in the city tournament. They regrouped and played well the rest of the season. The high point was a streak of three wins in a row against North Central, North west, and Terre Haute North. Although the season ended with a loss to second-ranked Manual in the sectional, Howe played better than the 75-55 score indicated. " Our improvement made from game to game and our youth were our major strength this season, " stated coach Jake Thompson. Scott Bell, the only returning letterman, av- eraged 14 points a game throughout most of the season. Junior Willie White scored 22 points against a ' " very tough " Tipton team, and Charles Mansfield was selected for the all-sectional first team. Ending the season with an 8-12 record, the Hornets have already set goals for next season. " I hope to have a winning season and win the city and sectional championship, " commented coach Thompson.

" Experience and maturity are two elements needed to provide a positive contribution to the varsity level next year, " stated reserve coach Jim Hamner. Despite a 5-15 season record the reserve team dwelled upon the positive lessons that come from losing and tried to benefit from the lessons learned. A positive attitude and being a contributor to the team were the two main things that the team focused on to become winners not only on the court but also off the court. The reserve Hornets showed their competitiveness by reaching overtime in four of their twenty games.

" " Quickness and outside shooting " is what the first-year coach felt stood out in the 6-13 season. The pressures of being out- sized and playing stronger and bigger teams did not affect the team ' s good attitude. " As the attitudes kept up the season improved, " commented coach Johnson. Jerome Gibbs was the leading scorer for the team while Clyde Spencer demonstrated great physical talent on the inside. Learning from mistakes and gaining ex- perience throughout the season is more im- portant than having a winning season. " These young men are all winners and I am sure they will benefit in a positive manner in basketball and in life, " added coach Hamner.

The Indiana High School Athletic Associa- tion is unsanctioning this particular sport because of lack of participation through- out the state. When giving his personal feelings about the move, senior Chris Giles commented, " The IHSAA should reconsider and keep gymnastics since there will be a lot of talent wasted. " Long horse vaulting was a major strength which helped greatly to make the last sea- son a better one. Another strength was senior Tom Strange V contribution to tin- team. He established three all-time records on the floor, the long horse, and the paral- lel bars. Coach Rick Hewitt stated, " Tom Strange is possibly Howe ' s only four-year gymnast and is the most awarded gymnast ever at Howe. " ' The major weakness, just the same as the previous year, was lack of experience. Much effort was put forth against top- notch competing schools such as Warren Central and Columbus North. Even though Warren Central won by a wide margin of 73.23 points, perennial state champion Columbus North beat Howe by just 3.12 points. Coach Hewitt claimed, " It was dur- ing those two meets that the most improve- ment could be seen.

Boys ' Gymnastics— 155 Gymnasts work hard For the past five years, the change of girls ' gymnastics coaches lias been con- stant. This year was no exception as former Howe athletes Jenny Strange and Krista Shepard agreed to coach the gymnastics team. Coach Shepard ' s experience as a top gymnast aided her in coaching the team. The assistance of Miss Strange, a former Howe record-holder in track, was also a great asset. Lack of I.P.S. gymnastics teams caused Howe to go outside of the city to compete against powerhouses such as Perry Meridian, Warren, and Pike. Because of the tough schedule, the season ended with a 1-7 record even though the team worked hard. The season highlight was a victory over Marshall by 20 points. This effort could not have taken place without top performances in floor exercise and the vault.

Swimming, a sport requiring tremendous work and dedication, is generally not very popular at schools without their own pool.

Seniors lead team Strong senior leadership was the key that held the 1982-83 varsity wrestling team together. The seven returning seniors combined their talent and experience to show the way for the freshmen and sopho- mores who filled in the gaps left by two- and three-year wrestlers who had graduated or didn ' t go out for the team this season. The lack of experience hurt the team in two ways. First, most of the varsity meet line-ups consisted of up to four freshmen. Also, throughout the entire season, two weight classes had to be forfeited— a practice which hadn ' t been done at Howe in fourteen years. Second, next year ' s team may suffer because of the loss of those leadership quali- ties and competitive experience. ( Kercoming numerous injuries was also a problem. Keith Hansom was out for six weeks vvitli a dislo- cated elbow and Jim Wilson suffered a neck injury at the Manual meet. Despite these drawbacks the season was highlighted by a victory over rival C; Also, seniors Bruce Cunningham and Keith Ransom both advanced as far as the state finals. Wrestling is a sport that requires time and effort on the part of both the athletes and the coaches. Jim Arvin, who has been coach- ing at Howe for fourteen years, was honored for his dedication by induction into the Indi- ana Wrestling Hall of Fame.

Several of them also participated in the football program, and the combination of both sports made them tough competitors. After a surprising turnout of thirty fresh- men for the thirteen weight classes, the best were chosen to fill the spots with the rest as alternates. Throughout the season some freshmen also competed as varsity members. The highlight of a 7-1 season was their victory at the freshman city tournament. Individual winners included (lary Marshall at 132 pounds, Bill Holliday at 167, and Oren Killebrew at 177. Mark Cleary placed second at heavyweight and Scott Butterfield was fourth at 98 pounds. The relatively small junior varsity team did well also this year. Besides finishing with a 4-4 record, they placed third in the Muncie Invitational against several tough teams. Even when they weren ' t wrestling, both the freshman and junior varsity wrestlers supported the varsity team by helping at the six tournaments that were held at Howe.

The game contained many surprises, but the one which was most amusing was the father-son rivalry on the court. I ' laying and coaching Tor the seniors was senior basketball [ilaycr Scott Bell; and play- ing lor the alumni was Scott ' s lather, Dr. Robert Bell, a 195. " ) graduate. Some stand-out performances by the a- lutnni were from Leo Banks, 19 points; Kev- in Johnson, a coach at Howe, 15 points; and Dennis Moore, 14 points. High scorer lor the seniors was track star Joe Folson with 16 points. Other outstand- ing performances were from Ouinn IVinber- ton, I 1 points, and Keith Hansom, eight points. Even though the seniors gave their full ef- fort throughout the game, they were down- ed by the alumni, L02-65.

Senior Alumni Came-169 Prom still exciting Fun, exciting, and starry-eyed best de- scribes the 1983 junior-senior prom. The evening proved to be a great time for ev- eryone as they danced to the group Clarion, who played a variety of songs. There were different styles in both men ' s tuxedos and women ' s dresses. Several guys went fi rst class by wearing tails. For the girls, " Fifties " style dressses were very popu- lar, although some preferred knee length. This year was the fourth that the two classes have had a combined prom. When asked why the combination ever took place, director of guidance John Trinkle explained, " The juniors couldn ' t afford their own. It was either eliminate the junior prom or com- bine the two. The downturn in the economy was another problem since many kids could- n ' t afford to go. " Mr. Trinkle also mentioned, " Hopefully for next year we can have the juniors raise money in order to present the prom to the seniors thus making the tickets cheaper for the seniors. Or maybe there won ' t be any cost whatever.
