"Wisdom Is Knowing When

Anyone who attends V.l.T. but does not know Mrs. Katherine Adair is
indeed missing something, for she is proof that one is only as old as he
feels. She has both a bachelors degree and a masters degree from Western
Illinois University. Here at V.I.T. she teaches special English and serves as
a junior Class sponsor. In her spare time she teaches Latin and has intro-
duced puppeteering to her classes. She is indeed a center of "life" and
"learning" here at V.I.T.

you are a Freshmen Mr, Inman is the teacher you fear most, and '
when you are a Senior he's, well, he's still the teacher you fear
most, but along with the fear is a genuine respect, Mr, Inman
treasures knowledge, and this, added to his genuine interest in his

It is unusual for a school to have one person 6 ft, 8 in, tall, but this year we had two. One was a basketball
player and the other was our industrial arts instructor, Mr. Gary Bradford. Not only can he swing a paddle and build

A bright new spot started appearing in the chorus every day at
12:25 when the school year started. From Greeley, Colorado was
Mrs. Janice Lucie, the V.l.T. High School chorus instructor. She
graduated from the university of Illinois with a B.S. degree. This
being her first year at V.I.T., she didn't know us, and we didn't
know her, but her warm attitude and friendliness even got the
chorus over the hump of introductions. The chorus participated in
school assemblies which entertained the student body, and gave
winter and spring concerts.
Here is a salute to a wonderful choral teacher and a true expert

ties highlighted this year with the
marching band brightening up half-
time at all home football games and
making V.I.T. known in area parades.
The band also played at home bas-
ketball games, and gave successful
winter and spring concerts. Mr. Tav-
ernier got his B.S. degree at Western
Illinois University. Hard work and
determination came from both stu-
dents and Mr. Tavernier.

part time teacher,
Both of these instructors are prime examples of educators

Most people think of a library as a place to read
books, but our library is much more. Not only is the li-
brary a reservoir of books and magazines, you can listen
to records, get filrnstrips, and have materials laminated.
Our hard workers are Miss Anita Hyland, a graduate of the
University of Tennessee and Murray State, and Mrs. Helen
McCurdy, a graduate of V.I.T. They keep the many facets
of the library in order.

Six years ago, as seventh graders we first approached V.l.T. with a mixture of fear and pride. In the past six years a won-
drous change came over all of us as V.I.T. bestowed its gifts. Here we have received three gifts which no one can ever take
from us: Knowledge, maturity, and many, many memories. A few of these memories which stand in mind are: the wonder-
ment of changing classes in seventh grade, Mr. Cook's board of education, Miss Baumgardner's menagerie, Randy and Betsy
as the perfect forever after couple, and Mike and Chris being called Tarzan and jane, M.r. Walters, the Science Club, and
everyone who was anyone having a superball. As Freshmen, discovering the rest of the High School, Mr. Inman's 8th hour
Study Hall, Biology I when Brice dipped his earth worm in sulfuric acid, everyone frogging everyone else, rolling marbles
arotmd the gym with your elbows at initiation, and just generally being the lowest of the low. As Sophomores: Mark saying
a bad word in Physical Science, and getting yelled at, 8th hour English, writing satires on the teachers' "lounge", Bob Parry
and Kerry Nielsen getting kicked out of English every day, being able to laugh at initiation, Geometry class giving Mr. ln-
man two pendants, Nehrus, and losing a dear friend and classmate. As Juniors: finally getting our class rings, the Christmas
program that didn't come off, Debbie Reibling's New Year's Eve party, Mrs. Hensley, adding Susie Coons to the class, our
basketball team being undefeated in the conference, A PENNANT FOR THE KREMLIN, fun at play practice, a smash-up
prom--right Ted, and Jill Wherley's broken extremity. As Seniors: maxi and midi dresses, our first bonfire, Mrs. Covington,
Speech class, THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, Carlyle ripping his pants during play practice, beating Canton in basketball,
cutting up pigs in Biology II, the trial of MacBETH in College English, College Bowl, and the tearful happiness of gradua-
We'll soon be leaving V.l.T., and in going we end a chapter of our lives, a chapter we shall never forget, but we will go
on striving for more glorious heights. As we go we say, "Goodbye V.I.T., Hello, WORLD!"

STATE'S Leading Scorer
The Kingdom of "72" became one of renown
and fame with a start in the good old castle at
V.I.T. King Arthur was in reign along with his faith
ful advisor Lady Teresa, his scribe Lady Sandy, his
chief treasurer Lady janet, and his chief of public
relations Lady Paula. We had many royal advisors
led by Dame Dailey.
Football and Homecoming came and also rings
of the finest gold.
Included among the responsibilities of our reign
were prom and our first class play. Our prom, April
Love, was tackled with great enthusiasm, and then
we were appalled at how complicated it could be-
come. The class play, State Fair, seemed to be an
juniors had basketball concessions. We soon learned that this was quite a hurdle to overcome, but Jim stepped in and
showed us how. ,
There was a lot of wig flipping throughout the year, right girls?
The junior boys seemed to be a gre at asset to the building of the "house" with Bob displaying step ladder walking abil-
ities and his knack for coming through the ceiling.
Looking back on our first year as upperclassmen, we found education to be more than eight classes a day. We also real
ized that in our remaining year, we must get as much as possible from those eight classes.

Being a little more confident and thinking the worse was over, we entered our Sophomore year at V,I,T, We en-
countered many new, exciting and interesting tasks such as driving, first aid, ordering class rings, selling magazines
cooking in Home EC., advancing further in agriculture and tackling Geometry.
Leading our class was President Alfred Seward, Vice-President Randy Farr, Secretary Connie Hughes, Treasurer
jill Speer, and Reporter Linda Perkins, Class sponsors were Mrs, Pavelka and Mrs. Cary. Representing our class at
Homecoming were Sue Wickert and Randy Farr. As our sophomore year draws nearer and nearer to a close, the
mighty class of "73" begins to look forward to our junior year as upperclassmen,

Last to come through the door are the Seniors of "74". First to confront us were subjects five, and even after initiation we
were all still alive. For President we elected Mike Blemler and Linda Horwedel as Vice President with Gerry Cassidy as Sec-
retary. Jamell Harris was to keep books as she oughter and Mark Hezlep served as reporter.
A class fund was needed so twas found--hence started selling candy by the pound, Vow our goal for the next three years
will be to carry the torch for V.I.T.

Under the coaching of Mr. Nelson Snowden, the track t
boys enjoyed a hard working season. They participated in
four major track meets, doing well in all of them. Many
individuals stood out in the different events with a couple
of school records being broken. V.I.T. was also well rep-
resented in the WILCO, County, and District track meets,
facing rough competition. A fine job of cooperation along
with coordination helped the track season of '71 to be one
in which pride can be taken.

in this season's accomplishments were a WILCO Conference Champion-

gional at Peoria. Between conflicts with track meets, rainy weather, and
odd jobs, enough players made it to the games, and gave V.I.T. a very

The student workers perform a great service to our school. The student librarians help out in the library by
checking out books and magazines, putting books back in their proper order on the shelves, and doing odd jobs
around the library. The student secretaries pick up the absentee slips and help out in the main office by keeping
records. The statisticians helped the coaches by keeping statistics and by calling in the games to the newspapers

Various things break up the monotony of the year. One of
these is the Hornet Herald, our school newspaper. Published
each month, plus special editions, by the Journalism class, the
Herald is a conglumeration of school, local, and national news
--plus cartoons. Even if you have to borrow a dime, the Hor-
net Herald is a worthwhile purchase.

Leading the marching band down the street is an elite group of girls who call themselves
the V.I.T. Drill Team. Their bright green and white uniforms brought more attention to
our band. Besides a few special numbers in football halftime shows, these girls gave the flag
raising ceremony for all home basketball games. Under the direction of Mr. Tavernier and
Capt. Joyce Weaver, this organization has been a fine addition to the V.I.T. arts. For 2
years, Mike Martin has directed the band through both parade and field maneuvers. Under
Mike's conducting talents the band had a very successful marching season.

One of the newer organizations around our school is the Varsity Club, created to honor those students who have earned a
Varsity letter in sports. This year the Varsity Club initiated a practice which we hope will be continued throughout future
years. A bonfire was held during homecoming week of the football season and spirits grew high. Members experienced many
fun times going out and eating at a certain coach's house.

The G.A.A. is a very active club around our school. During the football and basketball seasons we sponsored
soc-hops after the home games. We also sponsored the Christmas Dance and crowned Tana Carithers as our Winter
Princess. At our weekly meetings we kept active by tumbling and gymnastics, bowling, roller skating, and playing
softball. This year we had one of the biggest G.A.A. clubs and we hope it continues to remain an active part of our

"The Taming of the Shrew "
by William Shakespeare
Senior Class Play

OND ROW: W. Moses, J. Derry, B. Snowden, P. Parks, B. McMullen, T. Dennis, C. Weber, T. Carithers, J.

This year the Seniors decided to try a different type of class play, so Shakespeare and "The Taming of the Shrew"
came into the picture. At first, the cast seemed skeptical about wearing the long, flowing dresses for the girls and the
trunks and tights for the boys, but since maxis and men's pantyhose have become the "in" thing there was little problem
Play rehearsals were a lot of fun and the actors and actresses soon found Shakespeare 's wit and humor in their lines. The
13th Century jargon was overcome and gave the play its special personality. The mysterious school raids, a light bulb
breaker, and a few misfitting costumes caused a few problems, but all in all, this new experiment by the Senior Class
proved to be a success.

Sports on the junior High level don't receive as much publicity as do High School sports,
but that doesn't mean they aren't important. Not only do jr. High sports prepare the boys
and girls for High School, but they add excitement and variety to Junior High life. There
were fine sports teams in the Junior High this year, and for this we can be grateful. These
boys and girls are the sports heroes of tomorrow.

Jr. High Track
There is an important difference between
High School track and jr. High track, for in
the Ir. High the girls get into the act. There is
a girl's track team and a boy's track team,
but that's not unusual, because any boy in
sports will tell you that girls make sports what

Entering Jr. High, one
is always greeted by
friendly faces. Interesting
classes such as art, where
you can "do your own
thing" or the enthusiasm
shown by fans and players
for sports is typical of a
jr. High student. The bas-

well this year. The light-
