Text from Pages 1 - 72 of the 1976 volume:
David Arie Vanderhorst was born
.at Ely Nevada in the year 1919 on
His family moved to several
different towns in Illinois, and finally
settled down in Jacksonville. His
father provided for the family as a
minister in jacksonville.
After Mr. Vanderhorst's
graduation from Jacksonville High
School, he joined the Navy. The
highlight of his Navy experiences was
being present when Pearl Harbor was
bombed. His Navy years passed, he
went home to enter college.
New Year's Eve of 1945 was a very
important time for Mr. Vanderhorst.
lt not only meant the beginning of a
new year, but also ofa new life style.
It had all began on a blind date with
Joy Mc1rath.1t was a date in which
brothers, sisters, and friends were
present. Six weeks later though, they
In the next three years Mr.
Vanderhorst attended school in the
summer as well as spring and fall.
He went to Washington University
in St. Louis while his wife worked
at the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Looking for employment as a Jr.
High teacher in 1949, he applied for
a position at Umatilla. He landed
the job and he and his wife came to
live at Umatilla.
During the teaching of the
seventh grade, he completed his
Master's Degree at the University
Four years of teaching led him to
the position of principal of the
Next, he became superintendent
and remained there until 1971,
when he retired.
We would especially like to
dedicate this page to Mr. David

Yes, '75 and '76 have been the years ofthe SUPER THRILLERS, a new style in movies. Well, U.I-I.S. has a new style, too!!
In order to accommodate us all, new students and old, we've scurried around trying all our new ideas. Our knight in shining
armor, Mr. Carlson, saves us each time from the "J AWS" of desperation. At the beginning of the year, with new students
pouring in, our locker room became a "VOLCANO" ready to erupt at any moment. The day was saved when new lockers
arrived, fonly a FEW days late! !J and our locker room was arranged to hold them. U.I-I.S. also started the noontime activities this
year, and the gym has been shaking as if in an "EARTI'lQUAKE" ever since. Yet another source of entertainment is our halls,
which with our new students, is no longer just a runway, but an "AIRPORT.,' The new students, and even the veterans, go
through jostling, kicking, prodding, and shoving in the cattle chute we call our "hall". But in spite of this, U.I-I.S. is OUR
school!! fThough, like most kids, we'd rather it was a MTOWERING INFERNOH! U And now, there's a new super thriller!!!
It has everything you always wantedfsuspense, terror, romance, the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat! So come and
journey with us through ...... TI-I E VIKING SAGA! ! !!

The Upper two pictures show Mrs. McGraw with her swift speed and good aim dunking Mr. Amstadt on Senior spirit day. Lower two pictures show the
Freshman tug-U-War and who do you think won that day?
SPIRIT WEEK at UHS was aimed to
fire everybody up for the big game of the
year. With every class' participation the
week was filled with fun and
MONDAY starts every week of the
year, but this Monday the 27th of
October, 1975, was special because it
started to fill us with spirit. We came
dressed-up, well, not really dressed-up
because it was Sweat Hog Day,
sponsored by the Freshmen. Noon
activities consisted of Tug-of-War
contests between classes and the "army"
of tiny Freshmen came out the winners.
PEOPLE around town probably
thought Happy Days was being shot at
Umatilla on Tuesday, the 28th, when
we came to school dressed in our parents'
old 50's clothes. Sophomores had a lot of
fun sponsoring this day, especially when
after the Egg Race the football field was
a mass of eggs flying in a general-free-for
WHO else would choose Clown Day as
their dress-up except for the Juniors?
The most excitement of Wednesday, the
29th, was when all the big mouths got to
show their talents by entering the
Bubble Gum Blowing contest.
THURSDAY was a biggie for us when
the Seniors chose Biggie Day as their
dress-up. For activities, Mr. Amstadt got
initiated when a student from each class
and a faculty member got a chance to see
how many times he or she could dunk the
new Principal in a water tank. The
Seniors also sponsored a Wheelbarrow
Race where the mean tribe of teachers
came out the unbeatable. You've all
heard "Cokes the Real Thing," but now
there is some doubt now with the
students who entered the Coke
FRIDAY the 31st of October, the
faculty "didn't have to dress-up" since it
was Halloween, but since it was their
day, they made the rest of us dress in all
Orange or all Blue. Our unbelievable
teachers wanted to see how really strong
we are by having a Rock Moving Event.
They also sponsored a Donut Passing
contest while crab crawling from one
end of the field to the other. The end
was drastic when our "worthy" teachers
ran out of donuts isomeone said Mrs.
McGraw had lunch earlyil, so they could
not choose a winner fairly.
The thrill of Victory over Pilot Rock,
the Drill Team performance, and the
crowning of Gina Carollo for the
Homecoming Queen sparked the end of
a terrific, unforgetable week, but lighted
the way for a successful Homecoming

WHAT a better way to end a perfect week than with a successful dance.
The Homecoming Dance was just that! Everyone had alot of fun dancing in
the scenery of hay and Jack-O-Lanterns and to the sound of The Riley Boys
Not only did the kids have fun dancing, but almost every chaperone got a
chance to show us "how it's really done."
TH E court was very well picked this year by our devoted football team.
Princesses consisted of Debi Freeman escorted by jeff Watson, Jerita Noble
escorted by Chris Fisher, and Toni Ison escorted by Tom Shoemaker.
Crowned at the dance for Homecoming Queen for 1975 was Gina Carollo
escorted by Rick Wicks.
THE Seniors especially will remember this Homecoming Dance since it
was our last one, but I'm sure everyone has their own special memories.

Almost Anything Goes was a money raising event put on by the Sophomore class.
The idea of this comical sport came from the famous television show "Almost
There were four events. Each class including the faculty participated. The teams
were made up of six people and one substitute in case of emergencies.
The four events were The Saloon Slide, The Swinging Pie, Beauty and the Beast,
and The Running Breakfast.
The Juniors won the Running Breakfast event, and the faculty won the Swinging
The Seniors won the Saloon Slide and Beauty and the Beast events. They also
won the grand prize for winning the most events.
Contestants, faculty, and the students at UHS really had a fun time watching
these events. They enjoyed the excitement of spectacular performances by the

U.H.S. volleyball girls did very good this l
year. With their record of 9-4, they went to the ,VVV , V,,.VV A
district Playoffs at the new McCray Center in 'i'i .
third place. There are eight teams at district.
For starters We played Condon, Znd in their
league and we won. Then to go on, we played
our rivals at district, Helix. Passing them with
ease, we ended up playing for championship.
Going into finals tired and nervous, we ended
up with Znd place instead of lst. But we are still
proud to be from U.l'l.S.l
The other teams also helped support our
school well. The B team only lost one game all
season. The C and D teams hardly had any
games, but also did well. All and all, we did a
fine job of representing our school.

This year the Umatilla
Vikings were off to a slow
start, which had some
disadvantages, such as being
called "lazy" and other so-
called criticism. However,
they gradually worked their
way up, and with all their
pride and power the Viks
made their way to the sub-
district playoffs. We put up a
tough fight but lost to the
Pilot Rock Rockets. We are
still very proud that we made
others see Umatilla as a
tough team. We proved
ourselves, and had pride all

When trying to establish organization in the 1975-1976 year, the
Umatilla Dance-Drill Team went through many phases of
adjustment. We were a little slow at getting it all together, but
after a signing in of a new advisor, Mrs. Georgia Fugit, things
started to come back to life.
Money raisers consisted of a car wash, cake raffles lone where
the cakes were soggy from the downpour of rainl, and a few sock-
hops lwhere the socks weren't very hoppyl.
We hope we helped put a little spirit in the hearts of our fellow
students, to help our boys through the best, and the WOTSI. Good
luck to the Dance-Drill Team next year and we hope that the spirit
at U.H.S. rises to its highest peak, and stays that way forever.
The Pep Club, after years of disinterest, has finally returned to
Lisa Neiss became their "fearless" leader, and Darla Body was
second in command. Taking notes was Molli Brown, and the
banker was Dol1iMulkey.
The Pep Club, even though established after the beginning of
the second semester, supported the basketball team at the games
and were involved in sign making and pep assemblies.
All in all the Pep Club stood its ground and has taken roots for
the years to come.

The cheerleaders for 1975-1976 played an important part in
raising the spirit at U.1'l.S.
The Varsity cheerleaders, ,Ierita Noble, Toni lson, Amy Barg,
and Debi Freeman were always trying to give our sports enthused
guys the support they needed.
During the summer of 1975, the Varsity cheerleaders went to
cheerleading camp at Lewis and Clark college campus. They came
back with an excellent trophy, three superior, and two excellent
A sophomore, Penny Baxter, and three freshmen, Maria
Churchill, Debbi Myers, and Kelli Phillips, were chosen for the fall
to lead the cheering section of the Junior Varsity games.
During the football and basketball seasons, the cheerleaders
performed skits during pep assemblies, Football Mothers's Day,
and both 1-lomecomings.
All eight cheerleaders worked hard to making the spirit grow.
They deserve the recognition this page offers in the annual year of

THE 1976 Tennis Season for UHS turned out to be a
very. . . interesting one. The girls' pre-seasonal records
were not that important fthank goodness for somel but
it was the tournaments that told the story. Debi
Freeman and Gina Carol1o's identities came to surface
when Debi took Znd singles and Gina took 3rd at
District 7. Over all, from the help of the doubles pair,
Shelly Traner and Cindy Duncan, Umatilla tied for
first with Echo at District 7. With District out of the
hands for the players of the team, Sub-District went
very well for some, but then not so well for others. For
her last year of tennis, Gina C. proved to be a match
for any one player. Gina lost her last match to
LaGrande's first singles, whom apparently doesn't
know when it's dark out or not until she starts to lose.
KA little joke, right Gina?J Debi did very good at Sub-
District until she had to play Hermiston's lst singles,
Julie Sabotta. Debi had a lot of good shots, but she just
couldn't keep the ball out of reach for her opponent.
Sabotta went on to District in lst place, so it wasn't a
disgrace for Debi to lose. In the mean time, Shelly and
Cindy finished early and got to do a lot of watching
. . . boy watching. Tennis is for everyone, so before
you plan to turn out, keep suntan lotion on hand.

This year we had pretty good luck
with our guys and girls. The girls only
had 4 girls on the team, but they did a
super job pulling in points at each meet.
Bad luck struck the girls when Jerita
Noble had to have a cast put on her foot.
That blew their chances for going to
district for the relays. But the remaining
girls went to compete anyway.
The guys did well at district sending 4
guys on to state finals. They did pretty
good at state considering there are all
sizes there. But they came back proud to
represent Umatilla at State.

This year went well for both the boys and girls golf teams. The girls didn't make it to District,
because of their lack of experience. The boys did fairly well as a team at district, and Bill Porter
was the only member from the Umatilla golf team that qualified for State, which was in
Portland on May 23rd. As Joe Matzen was a Senior and only three strokes away from making
State, we would like to congratulate him on a great performance.

The Juniors held a banquet for the
Seniors on Thursday, May 6, in the .
Umatilla Presbyterian Church. We had
spaghetti and French bread, which was
prepared by the Juniors and some of
their parents. During the banquet, music
was played by Phil Garton, except for
the height ofthe night, when Reverend
Keith Kurtz gave a eulogy to the
graduating Senior class. After Reverend
Kurtz gave his eulogy, the crowd began
requesting songs of Phil Garton, whom
everyone enjoyed listening to. A little
excitement was roused when juniors
toasted Seniors, and then received a toast
in return. The long night was finally
wound up by a 'lThank You" speech
from Senior class President Nikki
Armstrong, and a little cheer for the
Seniors by Junior class President Terry

This year's junior-Senior Prom was
held on Saturday, May 8. The theme of
the dance was "Saturday in the Park"
and cafeteria was decorated in a park
setting. There was an all around feeling
that it was very successful, and almost
all reports from the Seniors were good.
The only complaints were that the park
lights should have been a little bit
DIMMER. The court was chosen by
the Junior class, who also decided not to
have princes and princesses, or one King
and one Queen to reign over the dance.
Instead they chose three boys and three
girls to be of equal status on the court
and to he called "Twigs" and
"Branches", The boys chosen for the
court were Phil Cimmiyotti, joe
Matzen, and Tim Curtis, and the girls
were Nikki Armstrong, Toni lson, and
Gina Carollo. Music was played by the
Dan Gobel Band.

SENIOR TRIP AT SUNRIVER
After many meetings and arguments the Senior class of 1976 decided to go to Sunriver, Oregon, for their Senior Trip. Mr.
Lange and Mrs. Wilson were the chaperones. Mr. Wright was the bus driver, lthis was only his second time driving a busl.
They left at 4:30 the morning of April 25th. They arrived in Sunriver at about 11:00 a.m. After arriving, Mr. Lange
registered everyone and found directions to the suites. After unpacking everyone went on their way to fun and adventure.
To tell you a little more about Sunriver: Sunriver has swimming, golf, tennis, boating, bicycling, horseback riding, games,
shopping centers, and crafts. The prices were a little steep, but it didn't seem to matter.
At 6:30 Sunday night, they had a barbeque in Mr. Lange and Mr. Wright's suite. Mr. Lange and Mr. Wright were the chefs.
Everyone ate well and enjoyed themselves. Mr. Lange said, "One thing about our hamburgers is the buns aren't bigger than the
patties." Everything went well until the door was open and the smoke filled the room. After the barbeque a few people settled
down to some serious business, a poker game. The game went pretty well until Mr. Lange started wearing a cowboy hat and
thinking he was Roy Rogers. Then Mr. Wright started smoking a cigar and about gagged everyone. The pots were getting pretty
big, one even got up to a nickel. The game ended about 11:00 and everyone went to their rooms.
Monday morning everyone was awakened bright and early to the smell of pancakes, bacon and eggs. After the meal everyone
was turned loose until departing time, which was 1:00. Some people went swimming. Joe Matzen tried to be Evel Knievel on the
diving board. He was attempting a ZW plus a M swivel dive when he slipped and landed back-first on the board. Luckily he was
okay. Phil Cimmiyotti had to try his skill at doing a flip. After two failures, Phil decided that he could get it on his third try. He
got on the board, bounced, leaped, and landed flat on his back. So much for Phil.
On the way home, they stopped in Bend to eat and shop. The girls bought clothes, flowers and jewelry, while the guys stuffed
themselves. After leaving Bend, they stopped at Peterson's Rock Garden. Here everyone bought souvenirs and enjoyed walking
through the gardens. There were houses, bridges, big buildings, and lighthouses which were built with rocks. Peterson's Rock
Garden was really amazing and everyone loved it.
The Seniors arrived back in Umatilla at 11:00 P.M. Monday night. Everyone tired and happy, got in their cars and headed
The Senior Class would like to thank Mr. Lange and Mrs. Wilson for being our chaperones and Mr. Wright for being our bus
