When 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 students makes him a tremendous asset to V.I.T. and to any stu- dent who seeks knowledge, The Whole of Science Is Nothing More Than a Rehnement of Everyday Thinking.

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 on joe Blow! !

Many musical activi- 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.

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- tion. 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!" 32 "Learn Not, 62 Know Not. " B J.

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 excellent choice. 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.

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.

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.

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 Ted, our announcer, gave the line-ups at the ball games.

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. MP' . ..,, ,,..,,g.,.

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. 79 Chorus FRONT ROW, L. to R.--Brenda Kluthe, Deanna Riebling, Marsha McCormick, Kathy Savage, Lynn Shaw, Debbie Riebling, Linda Horwedal, Mrs. Lucie, Joyce Weaver, Jobie Corbitt, Lila Kessler, Sandy Morrison, Betsy Shaw, Wanda Moses.

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. I 4 G.A.A. FRONT ROW fLeft to Righty: B. Snowden, S. Wickert, J. Speer, L. Shields, T. Carithers, S. Copes, P.

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 school. ' , SNAPS 86 we - A fz.-Enema Q .

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. ff:,.ff'..ff.'f ' lf'E1iffl2?i1s fi? ., . . .. is rm ,Z .. ., ,ri,gg.,-..- V ff aafipx 3 -' M 'L -a L - rjfffgaszrgias sesame 5 f f-, . , ,.s,rs, :,s+gsffQg.rfss, , ., ' g gi - - 5wf'ff:rf.- Sfsefsgsiafiifszlmgrfe- 2. if ' 3455 Siiiiiaiiyv eifrilrigss r r rw, . .if U, X 1.

October 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.

H0 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 they are. 4.41. f fe- 1 M5322 is WM. i map-j iigflg' :Gaia .,,.
