" Every week for 50 years those two words have echoed through the halls of Howe — if not expressed for the football team then the basketball team, or another sport or organization associated with the school. " Go, Hornets " are the most golden words here. These two words add a touch of gold to the life of an athlete, an active teacher, or a student striving to make a dif- ference at Howe. Right: Generations of fans have cheered the Hornets on for 50 years. ■ J : .; ' --,- 2 Theme A Touch of Gold Theme 3 Above: Senior Charles Brown (left) is the first recipi- ent of the Steve Harton Memorial Award, to be pre- sented annually to the outstanding defensive football player.

The school celebrates its birthday on May 28, the day ground was broken for the new school in 1 937. The school is named for Thomas Carr Howe, a former president of Butler Uni- versity who lived on North Audubon Road. His former home is now a part of the Irvington Methodist Church. The original blueprints called the school Ir- vington High School even though the wes- tern boundary of Irvington was Emerson Avenue. Irvington had been annexed to In- dianapolis in 1 902, with the promise that a hgh school would be built to serve the com- munity. The town had had a school, but it had been destroyed by fire in the 1 890 ' s. Through the first part of the twentieth cen- tury students from the area attended Shor- tridge, Maual, or Tech. In 1930 the school board purchased the original 10.9 acre site which was known in the community as Vio- let Hill because of the many wild flowers growing between Pleasant Run and the Conrail tracks. Other areas considered for the school had been the southeast corner of Washington Street and Audubon Road and the old Butler University campus at Butler and University. Mrs. Louis Bruck, a former president of the Irvington Union of Clubs and a school board membe, was instrumental in convincing the school board to approve building the school. She was given the honor of turning the first spade of earth at the ground break- ing in May 1937. Also present were stu- Upper left: The day each Howe student works for is graduation. The tradition of graduating on the Hill has changed but the goal of gradu- ating hasn ' t. Upper right: In the beginning Howe was considerably smaller in size but not dents from schools 57, 58, 62, 78, 82, and 85— schools which would provid e Howe ' s first students. The cornerstone, Icated on the east side of the Tower en- trance, was laid in November 1937 and contains the names of the first students; an American Flag; copies of the three Indiana- polis daily newspapers, the News, the Star, and Times; a coin; and a Bible. Charles M. Sharp, the first principal, served th school from its opening until his retire- ment in 1959. He was succeeded by Thomas Stirling, who retired in 1972. Frank Tout has been principal since that time. There have been four additions to the original building. In 1940 a cafeteria- gymnasium unit was added to replace the outgrown gymnasium — now rooms 227 and 229 — and the over- crowded cafeteria — now the Distribu- tive Education area, room 127. The east classroom wing was added in 1954, and the auditorium-cafeteria wing was opened in 1 963. The stadium was completed in 1966, with class- rooms added in 1969. The newest ad- dition, finished 1975, included a new media center, a new gymnasium, new career education laboratories and new offices. Howe presently is located on a plot of ground totaling 31 .35 acres. Ex- tensive remodeling within the present building has also been completed. More than 1 7,000 students have been gradu- ated from Howe since the first gradu- ation exercises in 1941. in spirit.

Many activities for this year ' s fiftieth anniversary were set for the day. First there was a soccer game at 10:00 a.m., then the annual parade at 1 :00 p.m., the football game at 3:00 p.m. and the dance in the North Gym at 7:00 p.m. While activities were beginning and ending, many groups sold items for spectators to fill excess time and raise money. Some of the groups were Media Club, Student Council, Home Economics, TisdaleTeam, Hilltoper, and others. For the first time a soccer game was played during homecoming. The team lost 4-1 to the Brebeuf Braves. Afterwards the annual homecoming parade started at Ellenberger Park and marched to Howe. The band led plaing the " Howe Loyalty " with the king and queen candidates, class floats, and other enthusiastic Howefans who drove their cars to cheer on Howe ' s homecoming. The football team also hosted Brebeuf. By half- time the Hornets were ahead 33-0. During halftime the marching band performed and princial Frank Tout and Student Council vice- president Tracy Denton crowned senior Jill Frederickson the homecoming queen with ju- nior Traci Collins first runner-up. The floats were also judged with the seniors ' float " Bomb the Braves " winning first place and the juniors ' float " T.P. (toilet paper) the Braves taking second. Another highlight during halftime was a tribute to retired athletic director Samuel T. Kelley, who was the school ' s first football coach. Howe ' s stadium is named after Mr. Kelley. Because of his work and dedication the foot- ball team felt they should honor him by giving him a special football to show their appreia- tion.

Homecoming 1 1 Band adds col- or to games The performances and achieve- ments of small groups and ac- tivities such as the marching band add the touch of gold that impresses spectators with their efforts and deeds. Howe ' s marching band led by sec- ond-year drum major David Adams and band director Keith White, showed dedication, ability, and pride when they marched for football games and numerous parades. With fewer members the band proved that great things don ' t always come in big packages. Flag Bearers add color and excitement to the mu- sic of the marching band. Seniors Leandra Brattain and Lori marshall close out four years with the group. 12 Student Life Student Life 13 Students comment on classes Hilltopper staff members asked stu- dents to comment on the most inter- esting, unusual, or exciting activities and events in their classes. Selected com- ments are reprinted below: DE Related (Mrs. Bareford) The most in- teresting time is when (on Mondays) we have to tell about something that has happened on our jobs. Sometimes we get into big argu- ments about how the situation should have been handled, but sometimes we help one an- other out in solving different problems. (Diana Walters) Stage Design (Mr. Lynch) The unique way we build, paint, and destroy props and the way we get back at some of the actors and actresses. Also the trust that Mr. Lynch puts into us. (Jason Zaphiriou) Chemistry (Mrs. Keaton) One day in chemistry we were doing an experiment involving heating magnesium. First, my teacher demonstrated the different reac- tions we were to expect when two differ- ent elements were combined or if an ele- ment was burned. Well, she took a piece of magnesium and heated it. All of a sud- den a bright light was lit. It was somewhat brighter than a light bulb. I found this very interesting and exciting because the mag- nesium was just so bright. When we did our own experiment the same thing hap- pened except this time I was a little more nervous because we were doing it our- selves. Otherwise, I thought the reaction was very interesting. (Roselyn DeCastro) Algebra 3 4 (Mr. Walter) Mr. Walter played this rap tape that he had made awhile Below: A National Guard helicopter visits James Yarber ' s space science classes to demonstrate the princi- ples of flight. back in my algebra class one day when we were testing. The rap song was about learning. Everyone in the class listened to the song and enjoyed the words, " You ' ve got to learn something. " The rap song relaxes us and we feel more apt to taking the test. We all would like to listen to this song every time we take a test. It brings motivation. (Melinda Baker) Government (Mr. Finkbiner) Any govern- ment class of Mr. Finkbiner is interesting be- cause he makes learning fun. It is the first class I ' ve had where the review for the test wasn ' t an hour of staring at a piece of paper, but instead playing Jeopardy. (Russell Lawrence) Government (Mr. Spears) U. S. govern- ment when Mr. Spears tries to tell jokes. (John Edmond) Biology (Miss Ashcraft, Student Teach- er) The most exciting thing that happened this year — so far — was when I was in biology class and Miss Ashcraft, our student teacher, was teaching. We were talking about evolution and creation when all of a sudden the table exploded. It threw sparks everywhere! (Dawn Allen) Drug Ed (Mr. Arvin) The most interesting class I have is with Mr. Arvin mods 3 and 4. It ' s drug ed. Everyday I learn something new! Most of the new things I learn influence me and the things I knew are reinforced. If you have an open place for a one-semester course, I advise you to take Mr. Arvin ' s drug ed class. (Kim Walton) Math (Mr. Ireland.lreland, Ronald) Mr. Ireland (head of the math department) just can ' t seem to hold onto anything. He dropped, and then picked up a piece of paper five times. Then he laughed.

Academics 23 Tisdale Team The efforts of the Tisdale Team have opened the eyes of many Howe students to drug abuse. This year ' s Tisdale Team has become a part of a nation wide program to stop drug abuse in school. With the help of Pacer Way- man Tisdale, and First Lady, Nancy Reagan, the goal of preventing teen-age abuse has tak- en a giant step. One of the major events this year was the visit of First Lady Nancy Reagan. While few students were involved in the actual program, every student was affected in some way. Mrs. Reagan ' s visit to Howe was something that only comes once in your life . . . For young kids to see older students and athletes saying " No " makes it much easier for them to say " No. " — Tony Dean, Junior. We (teen) are the future and we can ' t help the future if we ' re dead because of drugs. — Crystal Campbell, Junior. Her remarks made me think about using drugs, but I will never start using drugs and I will encourage my friends that it is not good for you. — Dave Craig, Senior. I feel that if she traveled all the way here from D.C. to promote the abolition of school- age drug abuse, it must mean she (Nancy Rea- gan) really cares. — Nicole White, Junior. Actually, I didn ' t need the speech because I think drugs aren ' t necessary. I have a natural high and I don ' t want a messed up brain. — Stacy Robinson, Senior. I enjoyed her (Nancy Reagan) remarks and thought they were beneficial to everyone. — Russell Harpold, Junior. Mrs. Reagan ' s visit probably influenced the kids who don ' t use drugs not to start, but the kids who are on drugs probably didn ' t pay attention to Mrs. Reagan or the Tisdale Team. — Jennifer Fines, Junior. I suppose I expected Mrs. Reagan to be only sophisticated and aloof. I did not realize that she was a real person as well as the First Lady. — Amy Hornback, Junior. My experience of the Tisdale Team will long be with me. — Brian Clark, Senior. We put out a positive message that you do not need drugs to succeed. — Kelly Alexiou, Senior. Naturally the publicity and recognition has been a lot of fun, but the most meaningful experiences come from when we go out and talk face to face to the kids. — Jill Frederick- son, Senior.

Groups 31 Music Department ' s Hard Work Pays Big Dividends Being a member of the music department involved different things: working hard, taking criticism, planning, and having lots of fun. This year the music department accomplished all of those things. With a standing ovation at Pop ' s Concert, the Varsity Singers started off the year well. This group consisted of twenty-one of the best dancers and singers at Howe. Throughout the year, the Varsity group performed in many places showing their talents. Varsity Singers performed in nursing homes, churches, the Education Center and in the school ' s music programs. The highlight of the year for the group was receiving a first place at ISSMA State Contest. It was truly a busy year for all the music groups. Concert Choir, along with the Madrigal Singers, delighted many at Union Station at Christmas time. The Concert Choir received a first place at the ISSMA State Contest and performed for various functions while the Madrigal Singers entertained at feasts. Howe ' s Choralaires, directed by Robert Bramblett, also took part in many of the fes- tivities at Howe, including two performances at nursing homes nearby. Between the Marching Band and Pep Band there have been many performances. The Pep Band played their glorious strains for basket- ball games throughout the season. The March- ing Band performed in two parades, the Veter- ans ' Day parade and the Homecoming parade. The main event of the year for the band was travelling to St. Louis to perform at Six Flags. The band also went to the Midwestern March- ing Band Festival. " The band was satisfied with receiving a sixth place overall in the con- test. " , said senior, David Adams. " We did great considering that we only had two weeks of practice and didn ' t go to band camp. " Most of the work of the music department aims towards the annual spring musical in March.

The cast consisted of 2 1 students each do- ing his or her own part. Joseph Bramblett played the part of the Emperor and Carolyn Jacobs played the Empress. The dashing Prince was played by Guy Booher and the beautiful Princess was played by Kathy Miley. The evil Lord Mai was played by Alan Lough, and was always contradicted by the lovable Lord Old played by Jamaine Walker. Other parts were played by Billy Johnson (Consta- ble), Scott Schoen (Dudley), Melinda Baker (Lady Dorcas), Brian Boyd (Ranger), Melody Lacey (Becky), Rosemary Deal (Vicki), and Clara Winslow (Millie). Also, Anna Thompson was Jane, Larry Knapp as the Sentry, and Keith Trinkles as the Boy. Last, but not least, Teresa Rivers, Michelle Humphries, Eric Berg, Billy Lego, and Carolyn Lewellen, who helped carry the musical along as attendants, ser- vants, paiges, and Ladies and Gentlemen of the Court.

" Music 43 JUNIOR RESERVE OFFICERS ' TRAINING CORPS Major Michael Flynn and Sergeant First Class Robert Malone were in charge of the Junior Reserve Officers ' Training Corp. The objectives of the JROTC program were to develop in each Cadet, leadership, citizen- ship, physical fitness, communication abilities, and knowledge of basic military skills. The Drill Team and Color Guard were active parts of the JROTC program. The Drill team precision marched and competed with other high school drill teams. The Color Guard pre- sented the colors at school games, meetings, parades, and many city functions. Some Cadets took advantage of trips and tours to military installations. A Spring Military Ball gave each cadet the opportunity to wear formal dress and enjoy the Corps socially. The leaders and JROTC staff members worked hard for this successful event. Debbie Fisher, the Batallion Commander, an outstanding student, symbolized the success of the Howe High School JROTC program. Roger Porter, as Company Commander, dis- tinguished himself and Howe JROTC. He set an excellent example for all Cadets, with his leadership, appearance and good conduct. JROTC Cadets and their leaders were proud to be a part of the Thomas Carr Howe curricu- lum for the school ' s 1987-88 golden anniver- sary. We the Cadets of 1987-88, would like to give special dedication to the memory of our deceased Color Guard and S-5 Commander, Joseph Whittney. He was well liked and highly respected for his tremendous personality and his leadership traits. We wish to offer this tribute to him, one of the finest Cadets we have ever known.

The JROTC program is designed to benefit the cadet. The U.S. Army gets no direct benefit from the program since the cadet does not have to join the army or go into the Senior ROTC program. The nation does benefit from JROTC since the program is designed to make better citizens of the cadets. ROTC 47 A Fresh Start For Tower The Tower staff began the year with a fresh start, due to the addition of a new advisor, Mrs. Vicki Martich. Her presence was a cata- lyst for encouraging former Tower staffers to return. This year was an organizational one for the newspaper students. The advisor began the first meeting by holding an election of editors. Voted into office were Kevin Lackey, editor-in- chief; Rodney Kates, managing editor; Nicole Kearney, opinion editor; Amy Hornback, fea- ture editor; Matt Silvers, business manager; Jenny Wilson, typesetting manager; and Ron Woods, news editor. The staff concluded that the Tower needed to be more aware of its readership. More em- phasis was placed on the events and news of Howe High School. The goals for the staff this year were to produce more quality newspapers for the readership, with less thought to win- ning awards. During the semester change, the Tower lost three valuable staff members because of job commitments. Eric Alexander ' s position as sports editor was taken by William Roberts during the spring semester. Michelle Wilson took over Jenny Wilson ' s responsibilities as typesetting manager, and Jessica Byrd as- sumed the role of news editor from Ron Woods. The staff attended an Indiana High School Press Association day at Franklin College in October and participated in J-Day (Journalism Day) at Ball State University in April. Top Left: Tower Staff.

Tower 49 Football Team Makes Impressive Showing And Other Fall Sports Show Strong Efforts The 50th anniversary of fall sports started off with a " BOOM " . Varsity football made it alt the way to the last sectional game against Lawrence Central. We were defeated by just one touchdown. The final score was 20-1 4. Boys ' tennis and girls ' swimming showed lots of effort and enthusiasm. Each team pulled together to achieve an eventful season. In girls ' golf the 1 player was Sherri Oakes who was said to be most promising. Sara Fults held 2 player and Wlarcie Cravens was 3 player. The boys ' tennis team was recruiting and rebuilding during the season. Last, but definite- ly not least, volleyball was building a strong team with Jackie Pay ton as their 1 player and Rocky Johnson as the 2 player. Overall, the Howe students should be proud of the ef- forts made by their teams compet- ing in fall sports. Right: Behind 14-1 3 with only a couple of min- utes to go against Warren Central, the Hornets wait for the snap as they drive towards their win- ning touchdown. BO Sports Sports 51 Spring Sports Flowers blooming, birds chirping, blue skies clearing, and green grass growing are a few of the wonders of spring time, along with the sounds of " Play Ball. " Besides " American ' s favorite pastime, " boys ' track, boys ' golf, girls ' track, girls ' tennis and softball fill out the spring sports schedule at Howe. Baseball had a struggling season, but the team is building toward a better season next year. Some of the outstanding players for the Hornets were Jerome Davis and Jeff Wessell. Boys ' track team had an exciting season playing many county schools. Aidis Thomas and John McCloud, two freshman runners, won the 400 meter relay in the freshman city championship, John McCloud also won in the 100m and 200m competition. Carlos McGee was a city champion in the long jump. Anthony Wise, Carl Meginity, Kowalski Martin, Rodney Burns, and Anthony Johnson are returning members of the team. Boys ' golf made a good showing this year even though their record was 6-7. The number one player was James Stipanovic, and Jeff Deetor was number two. Girls ' track kept the same outstanding 6-1 record as last year, while the runs for distance improved greatly. Tiffany Archer was the star athlete for girls ' track. Girls ' tennis was one of the better teams we had this year. They had a winning season with a record of 10-9. Sarah Foltz was our number one player, Marcie Cravens was number two, and Jill Frederickson was number three. Even though softball had a record of 3-12, the young ladies tried hard and kept good spir- its. Sherri Ochs and Rita Cruz were two of the players who contributed to the effort. As the spring season has ended, we prove to be one of the best city schools. 52 Spring Sports Top Left: Senior Justine Miller and Junior Sherri Ochs are prepared for anything their Softball opponents have to offer.

This season, the tennis team was fortunate enough to get to go on a trip to Lafayette for an invitational game. The familiar saying, " Get- ting there is half the fun, " can be applied to this hour-and-a-half excursion. I have no idea what was on the minds of my fellow team members when we arrived, but I was reminded of more of a college-type atmosphere rather than high school when I observed all of the football players, other tennis players and girls. At this point we all got into separate vans and departed for our different destinations. I was having such a good time on this trip that the impending match did not worry me at all. I played my number three singles match to the very best of my ability and was not in the least bit disappointed when I lost the match; I was enjoying myself too much. I think that if I learned anything from this experience, it was that the object of a sport is to play the best you can and to just have fun. David Johnson Top Left: Senior, Steve Ward rushes to receive the ball. To me, volleyball means a lot of hard work, constant challenges, and fun. As I have played through the years, I ' ve noticed my growing spirit for Howe High School. One of the most important things I learned while playing volley- ball was the meaning of teamwork. No one person can do everything; the team is what matters. If everyone does not do his share, the team will lose. It could be just due to one person not fulfilling his obligation to the team. Volleyball, or any sport for that matter, gives a person the challenge to do his best so that the school is represented well. I feel that if you have pride in yourself and your school, anything can be accomplish ed. My JV coach. Miss Pervis, may have been hard on our team, but she helped us realize our mistakes and showed us how to improve our game. Joanne, the varsity coach, worked with all of us equally as a team, regardless of our position on either the JV or varsity team. This helped us all learn how to work together and be a unit playing for the glory that we could bring to Howe. The two teams always sup- ported each other. I can remember how the varsity team would cheer us on to victory dur- ing our JV games. Their support helped boost our morale and made us play better because we gained more confidence in our ability. Hav- ing the varsity team at the games made it much easier to play at an unknown school where most of the spectators would be cheer- ing for the opposing team. Don ' t get me wrong — volleyball is not all glory and good times. It is a lot of hard work and discipline, but the fun that I experienced while on the team made up to every bit of energy I expended on the game. What you put into the sport is what you get out of it.

Winter Sports! Basketball and wrestling put a spark into the winter season. The girls ' varsity basketball team attracted plenty of attention when they proved they can still win in the Hornet style with new coach, Mr. Charles Page. Mr. Page worked on the teaching techniques of playing on both de- fense and offense. Veteran varsity player, D.J. Given said, " I thought we adapted really well to Mr. Page. We had our ups and downs, but we played as a team. " Coach Page said that he expected to have a very good team with a very good record. With pride and a smile, Coach Page said he got what he expected. Returning letter-women, Tasha Price, D.J. Given and Kim Cross helped the Lady Hornets basketball team finish the sea- son with a record of 15 wins and 6 losses. Mr. Page ' s goals for next season are to go as far as they can in the city, beat Franklin Central in the sectional, and to win the section- al. The boys ' varsity basketball team finished the season with a record of 6 wins and 13 losses. Coach James Thompson stated that he ex- pected the team to be competitive, to show improvement as the season progressed, and for them to be a 70% free throw shooting team. He had also anticipated for returning lettermen Kenny Smith, John Edmonds, and Fred McGee to be strong this season because all three had significant roles last season. Like any other team, this basketball team had its strength. Mr. Thompson said that their strength was their youth because he felt that Top left: Doug Clark uses his forceful ability to pin down his opponent. they were going to get better. Coach Thompson, full of pride, stated that one of the highlights of the season was defeat- ing Terre Haute North which was ranked third in the state. Another was the cancellation of a game because the nine year old leaky roof in the North gym turned the court into a swim- ming pool. Mr. Thompson ' s intentions for next season are to get back in the upper echelon of Marion County basketball and to see Fred McGee, Rodney White, Robert Mann, Thomas Allen, and Andre Smith contribute more to the team since they have gained experience this season. Freshman basketball coach, Martin Sam said that he expected improvement in basic skills, good character, winning attitude from the classroom to the gym floor from his fresh- men team as they finished the season with a record of 6 wins and 1 1 losses. Mr. Sam quickly added that they had a winning record as men on the court. Mr. Sam also stated he would not change a thing about his team with the exception of the record. Coach Sam is looking forward to a winning season next year. The wrestling team for the 1987-88 school year had an exceptional season. The team worked hard and had good senior leadership qualities. The team placed third in city and second in sectional. Alvin Holliday and Matt Williams made it as far as semi-state. Alvin and Matt are the ones to watch for next sea- son, according to Mr. Arvin. The team had a great season due to a good team and lots of interested people. Hopefully, next year will be even better.

To some, such as Audra West, " There ' s slightly above average school spirit. " To others, like Angel Vie, " We ' re slowly improving. " Still others believe we have no school spirit at all. One thing is certain, there seems to be more class spirit than school spirit. " Everyone is always trying to prove that one class is better than another, " says Stephanie Moore. " We do have a little school spirit, but that depends on who ' s winning, " say Tracy Kult and Jenny Scott, " nobody wants to see a losing team. " Overall, this year ' s school spirit started off with a bang, with football season, and left with a whimper by the end of the year.

" rang through the audito- rium in early December as the senior spon- sored play, A Christmas Carol, was presented. The famous Charles Dickens tale of Ebenezer Scrooge had a new twist as students, teachers and administrators breathed life into the char- acters. While the major roles were performed by students, some of the faculty stole scenes in their minor parts. Guy Booher led the audience through a fog- gy London as Charles Dickens, the narrator. Billy Johnson portrayed a remarkably nasty Scrooge. Scott Schoen was a sympathetic Bob Cratchit, while Emily, his sharp-tongued wife, was played by Kathy Miley. Evelyn Wins- low, Bruce Pickens, Joe Jones and Jamaine Walker played multiple parts. The ghost of Christmas past was performed by Monica Mertz. Melinda Baker played the ghost of Christmas present, and Dale Kinney was the spectre from the future. The faculty was represented in this classic tale of Christmas ghosts by Bruce Beck, John Ervin, Patricia Aman, Warren Dressier, Pat Kuhn, Mary Dewitz and Thomas Lewis. And, as Tiny Tim observed, " God bless them, every one. " Top Left: Scott Schoen helps Bruce Beck get ready for his role as the Portly Gentleman.

O.N.E. of course focuses on the opportunities here at Howe, but it also is related to our Student Council and all of us as individuals. This year, I ' ve witnessed so many exciting opportunities for Howe ' s student Council. When I look back at the past nine months, I ' m overwhelmed at what we ' ve accomplished. We ' ve pulled off approximately sixty dynamic projects, many of which had never been tack- led before. On top of that, we ' ve highlighted the 50th Anniversary with special events. So many members were new this year — yet look at what we ' ve done. We can be serious at times, yet we know how to have fun, too. We ' re not just great. We ' re outstanding. We have seized so many lingering opportunities and made them into exciting successes. We ' re not just a top Howe Student Council, or even a top student council in the state of Indiana. We ' re one of the best in the United States. Student Council, however, is more than just successful projects. It ' s responding to chal- lenges, fulfilling expectations, listening to ideas. It ' s believing in others, and more impor- tantly, believing in yourself. Being yourself and being able to express your feelings is a very admirable strength. It is when we love ourselves that we realize that no goal is too high, no dream is too impossible. Life has endless opportunities just waiting to be grabbed hold of.

Perhaps the best way to illus- trate the changes is through popular cul- ture. Clark Gable was the heart throb of many females in 1938. Tom Cruise is the heart throb of many woman today. Kate Smith was a popular singer in 1 938, a " big " talent in every sense of the word. Slender Whitney Houston is the 1988 counterpart of Kate Smith. In 1938 teens swooned and fainted over Frank Sinatra ' s songs. Michael Jackson ' s hits keep teens rock- ing in the 1980 ' s. WHtm t).

The number one female box office draw in 1938 was Shirley Temple. Oscar winner Cher is a top draw at the box office in 1988. Top movie of the year in 1 938 was Walt Disney ' s " Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. ' ' The number one movie in 1 988 was Dis- ney ' s " Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

The " team " had no problem getting along with each other, nor did they have a problem knowing that they were making a book of memories for Howe stu- dents. A lot of ideas flowed through each staff member ' s brain for the 50th anniversary year- book celebration. Thus came the title, A Touch of Gold. After the other ideas were written down, the work began on the yearbook that should be the most cherished to many stu- dents and faculty members. When you look over this yearbook, remem- ber you ' re going to the school with the golden Hornet touch. Crystal Campbell The Hilltopper is in a state of transition. Although the 1988 book did not get out on time, a virtually new staff and advisor have picked up the pieces of this giant puzzle, and what you see is the result. Without dwelling on the problems of the past, the new team has met an enormous and overwhelming challenge. Great satisfaction was felt by all as page after page was complet- ed and shipped out. Everything was new and exciting for the staff as we started to learn the problems, the terminology, and the pride of piecing together a yearbook at breakneck speed. We were thrilled that almost everyone at Howe helped us when we asked them to. To the coaches, the club sponsors, the office workers, the teachers, and the students that we pestered unmercifully, we say thanks. And for any problems or errors in the book, it was probably those other guys . . . Top Center: Sophomore staff member Marti Campbell concentrates for just the right words to put in her ROTC copy.
