"A tribute to
Coach and Crusaders
in this our 20th year
We recognize a
Perfect 20-0 record
We give thanks
We thank you for your 20 years of coaching in our school,
your generous contribution of many hours of extra work in mold-
ing a championship basketball team, and for the advice and
care you have shown to us as students and athletes, helping
greatly in shaping our futures.
To you, we dedicate the 1973 Silhouette.
As a mirror reflects true to life images,
so school reflects a most important time
of our life - a realistic time when we
matured enough to become individuals.
'4' Sy" ,qswmv
Through participation on a team or
in band, creating in art and drama,
working with others on committees, or
sometimes just listening, we learned,
grew, appreciated, and matured.

A Few Thoughts for
Each New Day
Promptly at 8:20 each morning, the organist begins her
prelude. Though this ritual never changes, the rest of our
chapel service offers variety. Guest speakers, students,
special musical numbers, and movies all serve as an inspi-
ration to us, and give us a few thoughts to help us through

ing begins with prayer. ej Betsy

Mini Courses Rerun
Besides giving variety, English mini-courses challenge the
students with new problems. For example, how do you
write a poem? What's the meaning behind the "Screwtape
Letters?" What is included in a complete movie review?
Such questions are answered by our English students.

fb A reading assignment holds the
interest of most class members.
It's amazing how certain speech students have a
knack for continually moving their mouths, fabri-
cating the wildest stories, coming up with unbeliev-
able facts, and yet when the time approaches to
deliver a simple two minute speech, cower behind
the podium. A few squeaks manage to emerge from
a quavering mouth, while knees are knocking them-
selves purple. But as the semester progresses, the
mouth returns to its normal sounds and functions, and
knees once again become ordinary, flesh-colored
joints. A few students may even feel thankful that a
speaking talent has been developed.

The Art of Argue
Not many people know the rules and techni-
ques of Debate. Most people go through life
thinking that debate teams merely argue
with other debate teams, and the team that
argues best wins. But an entire season con-
sists of debating one carefully chosen sub-
ject. This year the debaters discussed
whether public schools should be supported
entirely by federal aid. It's against the rules
to say. "We1l, I heard once ..., " but
the speaker must have a quote card on file to
support each statement he makes. Only
through intelligent coaching and long, thor-
ough research can a good case finally be
Language Classes Active
The foreign language department was expanded this year. French was
added to the list of languages, previously consisting of German and
Latin. Students in German III, organized for the second year, read Ger-
man magazines and attended a German chapel at Calvin College. Dur-
ing basketball tournaments, the Latin class contributed a huge sign
which read: Nihil nos prohibere poterit. Translated it means, "No one
will be able to stop us. " And on the bottom of the sign it said: "German
students, eat your heart out! "

these classrooms, but not for the purpose
of becoming secretaries. Typing will help
boys in college, and accounting and book-

it will be only on the job training that
will give girls the experience they need.

The world of numbers is one that
never changes. Two apples cut in
half will always become four halves.
But new methods are always being
discovered, and old publishing corn-
panies come out with new revisions.
Our math department kept up to date
this year by buying new geometry
books. And now our students claim
that "X number of apples cut in half
give you Y number of halves."

rooms of the school. These classrooms not only
contain desks and a blackboard, but also lab

scopes, and numerous other pieces of expensive
equipment. In spite of fancy surroundings, the
doings in these rooms are not sophisticated.
Students must pin their friendly frogs into a pan

must be observed. Heartless students crack open

The History Department experienced a change
this year. Instead of studying only U.S. History or
World History, students had a choice of different
courses which covered different aspects of history
in each nine week marking period. With this
change, the History Department now works on the P y i- U M

Preparing for Life
"Only one life, it will soon be past,
Only what's done for Christ will last."
At Unity our teachers try to stress this saying in our reli-
gion courses. Church History, Reformed Doctrine, and
Christian Ethics all prepare us to live a life for Christ by
teaching us how our church was formed, what our doctrines
mean, and how we can find guides in the Bible to help us
live so that when this life is past, we have something that

in rehearsal each day. They carry heavy horn cases home

It may sound like a good deal. A free
season pass in exchange for a few tunes
played between games and during
halftime. But pep band members will
tell you that there's more to it than
that. Each individual is responsible for
getting his horn to and from the game.
And no matter how exciting the game
is, pep band members must leave
early and be ready to play when the
buzzer sounds. Homeroom studies on
Thursday must be given up for
rehearsal Cthat includes intramurals
tooj, and members must play at pep
assemblies too. Think again. ls it such
a good deal?

But more important than clothes was the
harmonic blend of their voices used in pres-
enting special numbers at concerts,

better. During the semester, students

mental illnesses, and most impor-
tantly, Mr. De Witt may reveal star-
tling facts about students' personali-
ties. At the end of the course, psy-

The bell rings. Immediately all listless

ped by a reprimand from Mrs. Oostendorp.
The library is a place to study, and it
must be quiet. Under this grim and studi-
ous surface, there is a continuous scene of
action. Because a "no talking allowed"
policy exists, research does get done,
term papers are written, books are read,
and periodicals are found. And Mrs. Oos-
tendorp, who commands the quiet and
studious atmosphere is always willing and
ready to help us do the best we can.
The Truth Behind
the Inner Sanctum
It's popularly thought that office secretaries
answer telephones and write excuses. Prin-
cipals sit behind forbiding desks in an inner
sanctum waiting to punish the student who
breaks Rule 7, Section C, page 10 in the
Student Rules Book. But our secretaries keep
records and books, run copy machines, give
information, file schedules, and even hand
out aspirin. And our principal many punish
violators, but more often he is a friend to
counsel and help us and even to joke with

The mixer at Tunnel Park was the first social gathering of
the year, held on the Friday of the first week in school. In
spite of the weather, a few brave souls defied the cold by
swimming. The sensible kids clustered on the sand dunes
and talked, or engaged in a ball game and in frisbee toss-
ing. But an occasional shriek pierced the air as friends
were dragged down the dunes to an unwilling and chilling
bath. The feeling that unified all, though, was the reali-
zation that summer was gone, and school, with its 7th

Football marks the end of fall and the beginning of winter. The day of
our annual bonfire began with a football game featuring the senior guys
vs. the stronger athletes of the faculty. Fans wrapped themselves in
hats, coats, and mittens, diligently trying to fight nature's icy temper-
atures and cold drizzle. In fact, even the fire had trouble keeping
warm. But Student Council members kept warm inside by frantically
replacing food gulped down by their fellow students. Finally, everyone
settled down in the gym to give the girls' basketball game some cheer

Because 1972 was an election year, the Stu-
dent Council sponsored a mock presidential
election. The candidates campaigned on
November 6 by hanging posters in the hall
and delivering speeches. The candidates
included Kurt Miedema and Roger Plaisier
for the American Independent Party: Geoff
Baker and Glenn Vredevoogd ran for the
Democrats: John Hoekwater and Tom Fol-
kert represented the Republicans, and the
Socialist Labor candidates included Jack
Stroven and Emily Holt. In accordance with

girls to skate . But the role was changed

During homecoming week, special chapels and activities
are planned. Selected alumni spoke or performed in
chapel. Noon hours and homeroom studies were abolished,
and that time was filled instead by competitive activities
between. classes. The seniors proved to be most masculine,
most muscular, most speedy, and most scientific as they
gathered the most points from among the following activi-
ties: the volkswagon races, the tug-of-war, the All Star
Basketball game, the sheet race, the egg drop, the beard-
growing contest, the gum find, and the secret sweepstakes.
The most exciting part of homecoming was Saturday night
when our team ended the week with a glorious win over
Muskegon Christian. During half time, Doug Battjes

Fine Arts Week was centered around the arts and tal-

Club, Choir, and individual students performed in
chapel, as well as a cartoonist from Calvin College,
and a missionary. Two special activities were
scheduled during the week: a two-hour Alfred Hitch-
cock movie, "North By Northwest, ' ' and the Musical

All-Sch ool Play
A nursery rhyme is changed to a warning. A voice from
nowhere charges ten people with murder. And a young man
chokes to death as one little indian falls from the mantel-
piece. Such was the beginning of our all-school play, "Ten
Little Indians." The plot of the play was as intricate and
confusing as a giant jigsaw puzzle that didn't fit together
until the last piece was discovered. A lot of hard work was
put into the making of "Ten Little Indians." Various com-
mittees solved behind-the-scene problems that arose, but the
people who really put their heart into it and deserve most of
the credit were the actors and actresses and the directors who
put it all together. The reward of all that hard work was the
overwhelming applause on opening night.

"The Gold of Friendship," the theme of the Junior-Senior Ban-
quet, was felt by everyone as escorts, bearing flowers, rang the
doorbell. Friends exchanged compliments on formals, and the lat-
est gossip was retold around the punchbowl. A big improvement in
the banquet this year was changing the site to the Calvin College
Commons. More space allowed for 'more socializing and relaxa-
tion, and Seniors truly felt thankful for the value of their friend-

New Program Starts
Like many schools in this area, Unity got involved
in the student exchange program this year.
Though no Unity student went abroad, Unity
received a foreign exchange student from Brazil.
Her name is Monica Vieira. Since Monica was a
junior, it worked out well that she lived with the
family of Karen Nyquist who was also a junior. On
July 9, Monica departed from the U.S.A. and
returned once again to South America .

taking pictures, drawing layouts, cropping

all our work approved by sponsors, we col-

process begins again.

T.N.11, Chapel Organists
Time Spent on Us
T .N.T. was a debatable subject this year. The purpose of
T .N . T . was to eliminate the long list of announcements over
the intercom. But teachers forgot to read T.N.T. in their
classes, or post it on bulletin boards, and students didn't take
time to read it on their own. The result was poor attendance
at meetings and clubs. But in spite of this, T.N.T. workers
did a fine job and the students who did read itwere well
Another group of faithful workers were our chapel organ-
ists. Each morning one of them was at the organ to accom-
pany us in our singing, besides spending hours practicing
preludes and postludes. Thank-you, organists, for your fine
contribution to our chapels.

Social Action Club
Christian Love Demonstrated
The Social Action Club began slowly. But a Christmas spirit invaded the
club and ignited its activities. The club went caroling to some elderly
people and gave them specially made Christmas cards. A tutoring program
was scheduled and started again. During the Easter season, a group pres-
ented a program at Bethany Home, also passed out candy-filled eggs to
hospitalized children, and because last year's Senior Citizen Breakfast was
,f so successful, the club was host again in our gym.

A Pep Club was organized this year for

played at basketball games. Pep Club

The Rod and Gun Club, headed by Mr.
Hulst this year, was one of Unity's
more successful clubs. Three trips
were scheduled this year, a duck hunt-
ing trip, a grouse and rabbit hunting
trip, and a deer hunting trip. But a
surprise snowstorm forced a cancella-
tion of the last one. Mr. and Mrs.
I-Iulst were hosts for a wild game dinner
with the club. The menu ranged from
deer to woodcock. A special guest
speaker and the regular target shooting
with .22 rifles rounded out a successful
season for Rod and Gun Club members.

Two professors and a doctor enter-

took us to the Psych. Department.
There, they explained the equipment
and allowed members to play with the
scientific gadgets. A lie detector
revealed that some girls in the club
enjoy boys and kissing. According to
some participants, watching a spinning

How to Snap
The Photography Club met infre-
quently. But when they did
meet, they looked at pictures,
discussed types and advantages of
equipment, and learned to snap a
more unique picture. The goal of
the club was not to exist as a unit
of photographers, but instead to

. . . and a Black Eye!
Intramurals involved competition between homerooms in various
sports. Each homeroom had a boys' and girls' captain who set up
teams for their homeroom. This year, besides the regular sports
including softball, basketball, volleyball, table tennis, and badmin-
ton, a new sport called speedball was introduced for boys. It's a com-
bination of basketball and soccer techniques requiring speed, coordi-
nation, and accuracy. But due to injuries, speedball also forced a few
unfortunate victims to go on a date with a stitched lip or a puffy black

The crack of a gun signaled the beginning of
a new cross country season. As our runners
raced off , they were well aware that no new
2 1X2 -mile records could be set because
new rules went into effect at the sound of
that gun. The easy 2 1! 2 race was changed
to a strenuous test of 3 miles. Tom Vander

League Trophy Earned
The Junior Varsity Crusaders won the 4-C League
Championship and compiled an overall 14-6 record in
the 1972-'78 season. Highlights of the season were two
wins over Holland Christian, our big rival: a comeback
in the last second in a 74-'13 win over Calvin Christian:
and winning the last five league games after losing the
opener to Muskegon Christian. The Crusaders improved
greatly on defense and provided many close thrilling
games for the fans. Bill Van Vugt was the team's high
scorer with 471 points.

Besides using voices, hands, and mus-

imagination to create pep assemblies.
This year the pep assemblies included
people otherpthan cheerleaders. Stu-

Before the basketball season began, it seemed as though
Unity anticipated a good team. The gym overflowed with 1
spectators as we inspected our team for the first time against
Holland Christian. In the next few weeks, we began to real-
ize that luck hadn't given us this winning streak, rather, it
was ability. And finally, our team entered the tournaments
with a 20-0 record . . . and left the tournaments with a 2'7-

Unity's Own Superstar
In recognizing the finest basketball player in Unity's
history, the 1973 SILHOUETTE offers congratulations to
Mark Veenstra. For two years Mark was selected to All-
State teams by the United Press and the Associated
Press. This year, Mark was also selected to play on the
All-Star Team in Detroit. This team consists of out-
standing high school seniors from the state of Michigan.
On Friday, June 1, this team played a game, and Mark
also received a trophy as a superstar, the most out-
standing player on the team. Our own school also pres-
ented him with the Athlete of the Year Award. Con-
cj Mark follows the progress of his teammates intently. ey Mark

Tigers Lose Trophy
to Unity's Big Five
Unity fans entered the tournaments totally ignoring the
possibility of a loss in the District tournaments and
looked ahead to the "Game of the Year" with Musk-
egon Heights. Our team didn't disappoint the fans as
they streaked past District finals and entered the
Regionals. L. C. Walker Arena was filled to its capac-
ity as our Big Five trampled down the Tigers and the
next night joyfully paraded home with the much envied
Regional trophy. But the semi-finals with Albion stun-
ned the fans into realizing that our team wasn't unbeat-
able . And thus Unity left for Ann Arbor on March 31 .

fact, it didn't dawn at all. Cars and cara-

drizzle. But the weather didn't dampen
cheery spirits. And neither did the plush
seats and superb heights of the Chrysler
Arena. The game was exciting, but as the
final buzzer rang, Unity fans felt that the
scores of 58 and 54 glared down at us from
the wrong places. Original victory celebra-
tion plans were still in effect as seventy-five
vehicles containing proud, loyal citizens
paraded through Jenison and Hudsonville.

The Junior class kept busy all year making
money for their various activities by using the
popular method of refunding. These radical
juniors also ignored tradition by changing the
place of the annual Junior-Senior Banquet from
Unity's gym to Calvin Co11ege's Dining Hall.
For an activity, the entire class attended
Career Day at the Holland Civic Center on the
afternoon of April 24. Boothes displaying a
variety of vocations were set up by many col-
leges and companies around Michigan. Litera-
ture, brochures, and demonstrations helped
many students decide on a career. But for those
still undecided, another year at Unity may
help to make up their minds.

Exciting Year Leaves
The Class of 1973 participated in an exciting and
active year. Besides the regular yearly project of
barbeques, and annual activities like the class
trip to Cedar Point, Baccalaureate, and Gradua-
tion, the seniors were wrapped up in basketball
like everyone else. Even the more sedate subjects
like Government and History came alive with the
Presidential elections and the Watergate hearings.
Countless fond memories will always be remem-
bered from an extra special year as these kids
leave Unity and step out into the wide world .

In Memory of
Kimberly Iune Takken
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform:
He plants His footsteps in the sea ,
And rides upon the storm.
Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never-failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs,
And works His sovereign will.
- From Olney Hymns
by William Cowper
We don't understand why it was God's will that He take
Kim but we find comfort in the thought that Kim
accepted His will for her and was ready to go to Him .

Seniors Invade Cedar
While the night hours still reigned supreme over Hud-
sonville, signs of stirring aroused the neighborhood
around Unity as the seniors squealed into the parking lot
and stumbled into the waiting buses. Once settled on
the buses. the sleepyheads discovered the reclining
seats, which kept them quiet for five hours. But drowsi-
ness remarkably transformed into lasting energy as
friends piled off buses, screamed on the Blue Streak,
howled in the Fun House and moaned after devouring a
gob of cotton candy. At 6:00 PM kids once again
assembled on the buses minus a lot of money, but laden
down instead with teddy bears, sketches, prizes, gifts
and snacks .
ab The "Wildcat" brings screaming riders down to the
ground. dj Sports car drivers pilot cars back to starting
point. eb Kids on this ride were in for a surprise splash.

Seniors Challenged W'
in Decision Making ' -ff
Ridgewood Christian Reformed Church was filled as the
senior class, their parents, and the faculty gathered for
Baccalaureate. Mrs. Rose Van Reken, the guest
speaker, addressed the audience and challenged seniors
to make the correct decisions concerning their future. l s l
Bruce Lubbers, Tom Folkert, and the Clarinet Choir
provided special music. To acquaint parents and teach-
ers, a social hour was held in Unity's gym following the
service. A feeling of unity prevailed as students real-
ized how close the end was approaching and how much
they really need God's help in making decisions for
aj Mrs. Rose Van Reken addressed the senior class on the importance of

From an End
to a Beginning
The long awaited day, anticipated by many for
three endless years, finally arrived. In keeping
with tradition, the Seniors gathered for breakfast
in our gym and then rehearsed at Hudsonville Pub-
lic. Graduation itself was hot and crowded, but
held mixed emotions for many. As Mr. Vander
Vliet presented the class of 1973, a few graduates
threw caps in the air. Others simply smiled with
relief, but many felt nostalgic as they lifted their
tassel to the right side, questioning what the
future will hold for their classmates and for them-
aj Last minute conversations are held. dj Graduates line up in the
hall before processional. eb Junior ushers included Daryl Ponstein,
Mark Dykema, Rog Dykstra, Al Kraker, Craig Prins, Jim Steens-
tra, Rod Unema, Dale Vander Woude, Dwayne Van Klompenberg,
Steve Verkaik, Tom Victory, Ken Westmaas.

You are born into a world where love rights wrong
