Spirit of Academics Spirit of Organization Spirit of Athletics . Spirit of Friendship The Spirit of VHS . . . is discernible in every phase of school life. ft is the tireless bustle of each school day, the challenge of classroom study , the dedicated work of the faculty, and the efforts of the students. Uniting the student body, it is the essence of their enthusiasm for curricular and extra-curricular activities. To be part of VHS is to feel the spirit. Come, walk through my halls, sit in my pep section and hear the cries of loyalty. Look at my students and see the exuberance of the young. Yes, come with me, for am the school, and my soul is the spirit. The short-cut between the student parking lot and school is a well traveled route.

Anticipating the Future Lynn Anderson breathes a sigh of relief — the end is over, the new just beginning. Senior girls return from lunch, refreshed and well-fed. The atmsophere is strained while an- other chemistry class searches for the right answers to the wrong questions. 21 The Spirit of Academics . . . is centered on scholastic pursuits. My classroom subjects encompass a wide variety of topics and ideas. Blackboard equations in math class, intricate experiments in the laboratory sciences, the rhythm and harmony of music in band and choir, skillful craftsmanship in the vocational arts, the analysis of current events in history class, and learning in myriad other fields.

Social Studies and Business Many VHS students preparing for vocations in the business world spent much of their time in the business department of VHS this year. Those interested in the secretarial or clerical phase of business studied book- keeping, shorthand, typing, and business English. Those merely interested in a general knowledge of business operations were offered general business and business law. In the business department the “learn by doing” method gave students practical experience in typing, transcribing shorthand, writing checks and invoices, and carrying out the general duties of office workers. Students interested in social studies were offered a wide selection of courses including world history, U.S. history, economic geography, consumer’s economics, sociology, civics, and economics. World history stu- dents studied the events of the past and how they have affected the modern world of today. Junior students —aided by posters, films, special reports, and magazines —tackled the required U. S. history with its battles and famous personalities. Some students chose to take economic geography or consumer ' s economics, a new course this year; while others chose sociology, a course dealing in the knowledge of human relations. Civics, required for graduation, gave the students a better understanding of their country ' s government; while economics, also required, dealt with the study of our country ' s economic system. Panel discussions in sociology stimu- late class participation. Teachers witness many shocked expressions from the statement, “Take out a sheet of paper. This is a pop quiz.” 34 Classes Stimulate the Desire for Knowledge Taking dictation is a challenge and the result of much memoriza- tion and practice.

Art and Language Pervade Culture in a Changing World This year art students were offered a variety of proj- ects. Their first project was a poster contest sponsored by the Oasis Club advertising a Christmas bazaar. Other activities included painting techniques, sculpture, ceramics, and drawing. Art students were also intro- duced to the history of art and were required to write themes about artists’ lives. Foreign language students also carried on numerous projects. Latin students followed the Argonauts and Caesar’s Gallic Wars, supplementing their study by reading a novel of Roman background. German stu- dents chose their own projects ranging from making lebkuchen to dressing German dolls. They, too, were required to read a novel. A combined written and conversational approach was taken in Spanish classes. Students drew their background material from Spain, Central, and South America. Spanish projects included singing songs, writing poetry, and telling jokes in Spanish. Sketching is a favorite pastime for art students, and Mike Beebe shows that they aren’t limited to the classroom. Mike Beebe and Pam Smith were announced winners of the annual Oasis Club Christmas Poster Contest. Steve Platt points out that English literature covers more territory than most people think. “I’ll never get done!” wail English VII students while laboring over the “ism” assignment. The Spirit of Books Spurns Communication To gain a wide knowledge of the English language through both grammar and literature, was the main goal of VHS English students this year. In this study the library and its books became an almost indispensible help. Sophomores furthered their knowledge of the rules of grammar and put that knowledge to work by writing themes. In literature classes they became well acquainted with the different facets of the library, such as the Reader ' s Guide and the card catalogue. Juniors took on a new type of English in the form of public speaking. They also became better acquainted with the library, as their second semester of English consisted of a study of American literature. Seniors, in order to prepare themselves for college, tackled advanced grammar and composition, in which they wrote themes, essays, and finally a formal term paper. For senior literature, consisting of a study of English literature, students frequently visited the library where they found information for book reports and critiques. Addressing an audience while taking something apart is more difficult than it sounds. Bob Hildreth explains the various parts of the meat grinder to a speech class. The card catalog is a time-saver for Janet Froberg. 39 Future Homemakers and Future homemakers were offered several courses in the home economics classes this year. In learning the principles of food preparation, the girls experimented in preparing pies, cakes, and other dishes. In sewing class, girls learned how to cut out patterns, sew the material together, and finish their dresses. Advanced study in home economics included nursing, first aid, and child care. This training provided home economics students with a knowledge of general homemaking duties. In the industrial arts classes, boys learned the basic principles of wood shop, machine shop, and mechanical and machine drawing. Koys taking woodshop learned how to make useful articles such as stools, spice racks, and shelves, as well as how to use the “tools of the trade” carefully. In the machine shop students were provided with practical experience in using machines by making useful articles. Students taking mechanical and architectural drawing learned how to operate the instruments used in drawing, and how to draw ma- chines and houses to scale. Ralph Ronco is learning the essentials of mechanics through applied prac- tice. Colin Irvine obtains neatness and accuracy with the use of pre- cision instruments. 40 Breadwinners Learn Skills Larry Blanton demonstrates the necessity of perfection in the finished product.

Scientific Minds Meet a Challenge This year a wide variety of science and mathematics courses were offered at Y ' HS. In the science department students were offered electronics, physical science, biology, chemistry, and physics. Electronics provided students with a founda- tion in the principles of electricity; while physical sci- ence, a course just added to the curriculum this year, dealt with the basic principles of general science. Biology students, aided by experiments with micro- scopes and dissection, studied the plant and animal kingdoms. Those students enrolled in chemistry learned about atoms and their structures and did numerous experiments. Physics students learned the physical prin- ciples of science and put their learning to work through e xperiments. The mathematics department offered a well rounded study of geometry, algebra, and advanced mathematics in its curriculum this year. Geometry students strug- gled through the familiar set of the assumptions and theorems of Euclid, proving triangles congruent, and drawing endless constructions; while algebra students solved various types of equations for their unknowns, and plotted graphs for the values of x and y. In the advanced mathematics classes, composed completely of seniors, students tackled a thorough study of solid ge- ometry, calculus, trigonometry, and a final review of all previously learned mathematics. In geometry, circles mean arcs, angles, tangents, and more theorems to solve. 42 Marlene MacDonald reaches for a bottle of sodium hydroxide, commonly known as lye. Phvsics students calculate the mechanical advantage of an in- clined plane. Determinants are one of many topics covered by advanced algebra students. 43 Young Americans Achieve Physical Fitness and Safety Ideals In accordance with the President’s Council on Youth Fitness, VHS’ers participated in physical education classes. During the year they were provided with a well- rounded curriculum of sports. Girls learned the various techniques of archery, speedaway, softball, basketball, volley ball, tumbling, field hockey, golf and bowling; while boys learned the necessary fundamentals of gymnastics, dodgeball, basketball, softball, touch foot- ball, and volley ball. In both classes the principles of safety were carefully taught. Health and safety, a required one semester course, provided students with a good foundation in the prin- ciples of physical fitness. Students were introduced to the different parts of the human body— such as the bones, the muscles, the blood, and the heart— and learned how they work. The basic principles of safety and first aid were also included in the health and safety course. Students enrolled in driver’s training received in- struction in actual driving, as well as in classroom work. Starting, stopping, turning, and parallel parking were important techniques stressed in the actual driving. The study of automobile safety, parts of the automo- biles, laws concerning driving and practical motoring hints were included in the classroom phase of the driver’s training course. Girls in gym classes “twist " away their hour of physical education. 44 Jumping rope is an exercise that helps keep the girls’ physical education classes in condition. Driver Education Car. Beware. Parallel parking requires skillful maneuvering. Health students learn about the functions of the human heart by studying a cow’s heart. Mr. Stokes explains the complexities of an automobile engine. 45 CHOIR OFFICERS — Patricia Fitzgerald, secretary ' ; Ruth Fulton, president; Paul Ehnes, vice-president; Robert Hildreth, librarian; Glenn Coble, treasurer.

The first major activity of the choir was its singing at Beatty Memorial Mental Hospital in Westville, Indiana. Close- ly following the Westville concert was the Christmas Concert— “A Ceremony of Carols’-presented in coopera- tion with the VHS Art Department and Dramatics Club. Held at Thomas Jefferson Junior High School, the choir entertained a capacity crowd with Christmas music. On January 19, choir members attended the musical production of " Carnival” in Chicago. Several of the choir members took part in the solo and ensemble contest held each year in Gary. A joint concert with the Portage High School Choir was held at Portage in which the VHS Choir took part. In addition to this, the annual spring concert was also staged, and the annual convocation was held for the enjoyment of the VHS students. The final activity of the VHS Concert Choir was its singing at Commencement exercises in Boucher Gym. CHOIR — FRONT ROW : M. Peters, N. Hart, K. Lange, P. Holmes, P. Fitzgerald, J. Weissert, C.

Jack Swclstad Terry Wood Suzanne Underwood Nancy Lightcap president vice-president secretary treasurer Student Council . . . Government of the Students ... for the Students The Student Council is the representative body that governs student activities at VHS. It is composed of elected home room representatives, the president of each class, and the Student Council President. This organi- zation is for the purpose of developing school spirit among the students, maintaining good citizenship, and providing for the general welfare of the student body. The council members showed their willingness to carry out these purposes by making plans for the re-landscap- ing of the inner court, the control of student traffic, the disposal of trash, and the planting of bushes and trees on the school premises. In addition, the council determined the eligibility for the prom and settled dis- putes among other clubs. By the successful way in which they carried out their plans, the Student Council has earned the high esteem of VHS students. Student Council meets each Wednes- day at 3 o’clock to determine VHS standards. The meeting will please come to order. 52 Principal King Telle administers the oath of office to Jack Swelstad, incoming Student Council President.

Pep Club Stimulates Loyalty to Green and White The purpose of the Valparaiso High School Pep Club is to develop and maintain a high degree of school spirit in all planned athletic functions. The first activity of this year ' s Pep Club was the production of the Homecoming Dance at which the queen and her court were presented to the student body. Pep Club also sponsored the Spring Beauty Dance held just be- fore the Valpo Relays. It was at this dance that the Spring Beauty Court was announced. New this year, alternating with the regular Pep Club meetings on Tuesday, were special meetings at which officers, spon- sors, seasonal sportheads, weekly game chairmen, and cheerleaders were present. The purpose of these meet- ings was to better organize the Pep Club sponsored functions of the school. Pep Club formed an organized shaker section for the sectional tourneys in basketball as has been done in previous years. Closing the year for Pep Club ' ers was the annual Dessert Party. It was at this affair that the pins, charms, and trophies were presented and that the newly elected officers for the n wing year were announced. Animated expressions seen at basket- ball Raines reveal the vim, vigor, and vitality of teenagers. “Paint ' urn green!” say Bonnie Un- derwood, Cynthia Lertz, Marylou Loayza, and Meredith Daniel; who follow the tradition of making the basketball hoop for the home games. 54 PEP CLUB OFFICERS — SITTING: M.

The purpose of the club is to show the possi- bilities of the career, considering both the advantages and disadvantages. Several speakers from different fields of teaching were guests at some of the meetings, and movies were also shown frequently. Several projects of the FTA included— providing decorations for the FTA bulletin board and sending a food basket to the welfare for distribution to a needy family. The year ended with the installation of newly elected officers. Cadet teachers, although not required to join FTA, were really a part of the organization. These students were put in grade school situations to assist the regular teachers. During the semester, each cadet teacher spent nine weeks in the primary grades, and nine weeks in the intermediate level. The teachers in each of these grades were then asked to give a report on the cadet teacher. The students, also, were required to turn in a weekly observation sheet, and at the end of the semes- ter, a term paper on something to do with teaching.

This year the Girls’ Athletic Association provided a well-rounded series of activities in which members were able to participate. They included such sports as speetl-away, basketball, volleyball, softball, archery, bowling, and numerous others. The new members were given senior " big sisters” with whom they ex- changed gifts at the Rig-Little Sister Party. Various money-making projects were undertaken by GAA ' ers, including the sale of sweatshirts and stuffed animals. The money made through these projects was used to buy awards and new equipment. The GAA also spon- sored an informal dance in January, and the annual Sadie Hawkins Dance. The annual awards banquet finished the year for GAA’ers. GAA Promotes Skill and Sportsmanship Basketball is a favorite winter sport of GAA members. Donna Babcock earns extra GAA points by refereeing after-school bas- ketball games. in the “Weaker Sex” Jari Marsden presents Sandra Barnhart with a stuffed animal at the annual big-little sister Christmas party.

Hi-Y Enriches Personality Growth The Hi-Y is the oldest organization at Valparaiso High School. In affiliation with the YMCA, this boys’ Christian organization constantly strives to build both the ideals and character of the boys in the school. This year the Hi-Y held the annual Father-Son Ban- quet and organized the Christmas Dance. In addition to these activities the Hi-Y attended various churches as a group. They also caroled at Christmas time with the Y-Teens. This year was a landmark year for the Hi-Yers, as they undertook the adoption of an orphan boy. Aided by Sponsors Mr. William Brinker and Mr. Claude Gaston, the Hi-Y members strived to set down a high code of character for their later life. Visiting local churches is a traditional Hi-Y project. Y-Teens Serve Julie Frye, decoration chairman for the King of Hearts Dance, gets some helpful advice about where the “H” should go. One of the favorite duties of the Y-Teen’s president is to escort the King of Hearts. Diane Follis and Terry Wood take the long walk before the coronation. The purpose of Y-Teens is to teach the Christian prin- cipal of serving others, right living, and respect for the beliefs of others. This year the club sponsored many activities in order to carry out this purpose. The year began with a Mixing Bowl which introduced the club to prospective members. The new members were then inducted, and after this event, projects were in full swing. This year the girls gave a party for the children in the Shults-Lewis Children’s Home and aided Vale Day School, by making toys and giving money. They sold TB Christmas Seals, conducted a bake sale, and held a penny collection among the members, to earn money for carrying out club activities and giving to charity. The main money-making project of the year was their sponsoring of the King of Hearts Dance, the major part of the proceeds of which were given to the Heart Fund. The meetings of the club this year were enlivened by a boys’ panel, a speaker on a career, and a speaker on beauty hints. The year was climaxed for Y-Teens with the Mother-Daughter Banquet at which next year’s officers were presented. School and Community Adrienne Rosenberg and Sue Dayton put together the neressarv ingredients and hope they ' ll wind up with a cake for the up- coming bake sale. Guest speaker.

These included the projection- ists, the office girls, the student secretaries, the student nurses, and the librarians. In the Projection Club, members were instructed in the use and care of projec- tors, film, and all other audio-visual material. Some of the more experienced members learned techniques in taping and splicing films. The twenty-three members of which eight are new, were sponsored by Miss Florence Craig. Office girls, serving in the Principal’s Office, the Guidance Office, and the Attendance Office were given several responsibilities. Some of these included filing, typing, using th e public address system for an- nouncements, and running errands. The girls in the Principal’s Office were under the direction of Mrs. Betty Price, and those in both the Attendance and Guidance Offices were guided by Mrs. Janet Tofte. Student secretaries, sponsored by Mr. Bryce Rohn, also took on many responsibilities. At the beginning of the year each girl was assigned a teacher for which she was to type tests and study guides, use the duplicating machine, and take care of all letters. All this work was to be kept strictly confidential. Those girls planning careers as nurses were given the opportunity to take charge of the Nurse’s Office for one hour each day. Guided by Mrs. Delores Bauer, the girls were given per- mission to take care of minor ailments and were re- sponsible for keeping a record of all students entering the nurse’s office and their reason for being there. The student librarians also performed several services for the school. Aided and instructed by Mrs. Carol Derner, they learned and practiced various techniques of oper- ating a library. with a Cheerful Smile Sue Shook’s voice can be heard at the end of the school day saying, “May I have your attention, please, for the 3 o’clock announcements.” STUDENT NURSES— FRONT ROW: D.

The paper was published bi-weekly throughout the year, except during holiday periods. This year’s Valpost featured senior interviews, INFO —an article from the Guidance Office, as well as feature stories and editorials. Various student polls, such as those on popularity, and the absence of the freshman class, were conducted. The editor-in-chief, Peggy An- derson, attended the Chicago Tribune Seminar at Mc- Cormick Place in Chicago. While there she was in- structed in make-up, copy reading, production and printing. Sharon Rowland served the Valpost as busi- ness manager. The year ended for the Valpost staff at the annual Valenian-Valpost Dinner at which next years’ staff was announced. Every two weeks the Valpost news staff gathers around the “sub sheet " to check their assignments. Nancy Findling. assistant editor, submits her her assignment to typist Gale Christman. 66 Sharon Rowland, business manager, solicits ads, checks sale receipts, and keeps track of incoming and outgoing funds. Jari Marsden, columnist, reads the latest gossip to cartoonist Randy Eckley. Meredith Hart interviews Ray Hew- lett for one of the student-opinion polls. The editorial staff meets in room 107 concerning new policies. Ex- perience gained while working on the Valpost is valuable to those contemplating a career in journalism. 67 Dramatics Club Provides Experience for Members Attention is focused upon the result of much memorization and practice. Footlight Masqueraders tako advan- tage of early morning practice to achieve perfection. 68 and Entertainment for Student Body During their busy year the members of Dramatics Club staged several shows of wide variety. First came a light comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest, given for the sophomores. Then The Fog on the Valley, a serious drama, was presented for the juniors. The seniors were entertained by Still Stands the House, a chilling horror story. Finally, The Tiysting Place, a comedy, was put on for the entire school. In Decem- ber, the club presented a Christmas pageant and helped sponsor the Christmas dance. They participated in the Calumet Play Contest in the spring. High points in the year’s activities came when the club attended two hit shows in Chicago— Maiy, Maty and Carnival. The year ended with a party at which awards were given to the best leadings actors and the best supporting actors in the year ' s productions. Club meetings during the year were enlivened by dramatic readings given by mem tiers. Thus everyone has performed before an audience and experienced the excitement of being part of a theatrical production. “Gloria in excelsis Deo!” The fine arts department presents “A Cere- mony of Carols.” DRAMATICS CLUB OFFICERS— SITTING : L.

Mary Stinchfield editor-in-chief Valenian Staff Records Events of 1962-63 School Year Work began for the 1963 Valenian Staff with the publishing of the 1962 summer supplement. After its completion, Editor-in-Chief Mary Stinchfield, and Copy Editor Kathy Hart attended the High School Journalism Institute at Indiana University where they learned techniques in putting out a grade “A” yearbook. The 1963 staff undertook several new processes this year also. Instead of having the material for the book pasted-up by the American Yearbook Company, the Layout Editor, Linda Harkin, pasted it up herself. The staff also decided to have all of the Valenian’s type- setting done in Valparaiso at the Home Mountain Publishing Company. The biggest change in this year’s Valenian, however, was the change over from the stand- ard high school size book to the 9x12 college size book.

The screaming of excited spectators, fierce pride in a game well-played, the will to succeed in the face of tough competition, grueling training of muscle and mind, trophies symbolizing months of effort, school spirit tempered by good sportsmanship — all these belong to me. Football requires brains as well as brawn. Under the direction of assistant coach Bob Rhoda and new head coach Tom Stokes; former Drake Uni- versity athlete and head football coach at Dyer Central, the Vikes installed an entirely new system of play, the single wing. After being defeated in their first four games at the hands of Crown Point, Gary Lew Wallace, Gary Froebel, and Gary Horace Mann, the Vikings came back to win the Homecoming game against the arch rival Chesterton Trojan team. Steve Platt and A1 Gott served as honorary captains at this game. After losing three more games to East Chicago Washington, Gary Tolleston, and Gary Emerson, they scored a 19-19 tie with the Portage Indians giving the Vikings the title of Porter County Champions. The Junior Varsity, composed completely of sopho- mores, was under the direction of Virgil Sweet. They, too, adopted the single wing formation, finishing the 1962-1963 season winning two games, losing four, and tying one game. The Valparaiso Viking football season ended with the annual fall sports banquet at which letters and trophies were awarded by Coach Stokes. Avid Viking fans await the next play. Gridiron Season . . .

Led by Co-captains Willie and Bob Comeford, the Vikes also captured the title of the NIHSC meet, and third place ratings at both the Ho- bart Invitational and the Shortridge Invitational. Win- ning all of the seventeen scheduled single meets, the Vikings entered the LaPorte Sectional. Here, opposed by twenty other teams, they scored a record breaking 28 points to capture the second straight LaPorte Section- al title. After placing third in the regional tournament, Vike runners entered the state meet in Indianapolis, taking fifth place. This year Coach Pifer instituted a 1000 Mile Club and a 500 Mile Club. To become eligible for member- ship, a boy was required to run 1000 or 500 miles, depending upon which club he wished to belong. Willie Comeford was the only runner to become eligi- ble for either club, running a total of over 1000 miles from June to the end of the Cross Country season. Another achievement made by a VHS runner was the breaking of four course records by junior Earl Deal. Tankers Smash Record Books The 1962-1963 Viking swim team, guided by Coach Robert Rhoda, closed the season with a 14-5 dual meet record. The record books were almost completely re- written, as seniors Tom Hutton and Dave Butterfield and sophomore Bob Johnson repeatedly lowered the marks in every event. Captain Tom Hutton personally broke five individual records and shared four relay records-a total of nine in all. The Tankers success- fully defended their West NIHSC crown with a perfect 5-0 conference record and won the West-NIHSC. meet, setting six new meet records. After placing fourth in the NIHSC meet in South Bend, the team won the Cul- ver sectional and qualified fourteen boys for the state meet at Indiana University, where they finished sixth in the state.

Matmen Win Sectional Title Under the direction of Coach Charles Stuber and Assistant Coach Tom Stokes the Viking wrestlers closed their dual meet season with a 7-5 record. Winning in the West Northern Indiana High School Conference, where Valpo rated third, were Mike Hannon who placed first, and A1 Ehnes and Mike Anselm who placed second. Highlight of the season was the winning of the Crown Point Sectional title. Placing first for VHS were Butch Davis, 129-pountl division; Mike Anselm, 1-10; and Butch Hill, 147. These three wrestlers went on to represent VHS in the regional at East Chicago. Taking second in the sectional were Mike Hannon, 97; A1 Ehnes, 114; Tom Swihart, 135; Terry Wood, 156; and Lewie Watts, heavyweight. The election of Terry Wood and Mike Anselm as co-captains closed the season. Nervousness is momentarily shaken while urging a teammate to victory. WRESTLING 1 EAM — -FRONT ROW : T. Swihart, D.

Coached by Dale Ciciora, the junior varsity finished the season with an 11-9 record. The winning of the Valparaiso Junior Varsity Tourney was the highlight of the team’s season. The varsity, under the direction of Coach Virgil Sweet, played considerably above the pre-season expectations. Starting slowly, the Vikes failed to get rolling until the latter half of the season. During this last half, however, they won eight of their last nine regular season games. Overtime victories over LaPorte and Indianapolis Cris- pus Attucks were the highlights of this winning streak. Seniors on the team were Dave Carlson, Dennis Gloff, Allen Gott, Steve Platt, and Ed Soliday. The five re- turning juniors and up-coming sophomores compose many fine prospects for next year. In Sectional play, the Vikings romped over Liberty in their first game 87-30, and then defeated their next three major opponents by the scores of 80-60— Hebron; 72-67— Chesterton; and 72-49— Portage. The average winning margin for VHS was 28 points. In the Region- al, the Vikes were defeated by East Chicago Washington by a 63-42 score. Coach Virgil Sweet signals last minte instruct structions to his team. CfQ The game’s fate will be told by the scoreboard. H-c-y Fight!

Intramurals Provide Athletic Activity and Enjoyment The intramural basketball program was designed to give boys not on any varsity team during the winter a chance to play ball. The (i5 boys participating in the program were organized into eight teams, each of which was captained by a senior. The teams played on Mon- day nights and Saturday afternoons. Four games were played each session with each team playing one other team. From December to March, the teams were ro- tated so that each team played each of the other teams twice. At the end of the season, a tourney was held and one of the teams became the champion. This marked the third year of the intramural program which was sponsored by Mr. Glen Ellis. Viking Cheerleaders Convey Student Enthusiasm Both varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders served the school and the Pep Club as promoters of good sports- manship. Present at every football and basketball game, the cheerleaders led organized cheers for the Vik- ing teams. Several factors were considered in choosing the cheerleaders. These included grades, citizenship, past record in high school, teacher’s votes— based on schoolwork and attitude, and student vote— based on performance in the try-outs. The cheerleaders, then, upon election, set aside days for practice and consulta- tion with Pep Club President Pat Slavey and Sponsor Mrs. Margie Filipowski. At these meetings they dis- cussed better ways both to present their cheers and to instill school spirit within the student body. During the year, in order to raise money for uniforms, the cheerleaders took on several money-making projects. These included selling the Pep Club pins used for uni- form dress, and the senior members of the squad ' s selling senior cards. JV CHEERLEADERS— Eileene Koep- kc, Jane Bauer, Marlene MacDonald, Elizabeth Stinchfield. VARSITY CHEERLEADERS— Isabel Haggerty, Caryl Makov- sky, Jane Dean, Eunice Kroenke, Barbara Raines, Carol Prahl. The Spirit of Friendship . . . is evident in the day-to-day work of my students. It unites the newcomer with a Texan drawl to the ranks of the student body, the majority of whom possess a staid midwestern twang. Be it a casual conversation, a friendly greeting , or just a smile, they all reflect a spirit — an attitude of a whole new generation. The total impression I create on the community, the respect I receive depends upon the accomplishments of these young people. While they look expectantly toward the future, the class of ’63 can look back on four memorable hjgh school years. As freshmen they fumbled uncertainly to find their places in an alien new world. As sopho- mores and juniors, their assurance increased, and they became an integral part of the school. Finally, this year ' s seniors became the leaders, the pacesetters, in the activities of their last and most important year of high school. This last year-an exicting whirlwind of college appli- cations, games, dances, and term papers— was climaxed by baccalaureate and commencement exercises. Now the newest class of VHS graduates are ready to look ahead to useful, happy lives, enriched immeasurably by their high school experiences.

As the year progressed, they assumed the responsibility of holding important positions in the school. By making plans and working hard to carry them out, the juniors contributed much to the success of the year’s activities. The Junior Speech Banquet provided entertaining memories of high school days; and the 1963 Prom, which was their major project, was a great accomplishment. Enthusiastic and willing to be of service, the members of this class are now well prepared to meet the challenges of their senior year of high school.

Sophomores Approach Status of Upperclassmen This year’s sophomores have been the beginning class in the high school for two years because of the incorporation of the ninth grade into the junior high. By their clear headed, confident behavior, however, the members of this class have insured themselves against being treated like freshmen. At the beginning of the year, they plunged like veterans into the stream of school activity. They vigorously backed the JV teams, chose their class rings, enthusiastically supported school organizations, decorated the gym for commencement, and acquired a new, more serious attitude toward aca- demic subjects. This year, the sophomores have taken major steps toward the successful completion of their high school careers.

The weeks preceding graduation are marked by reflection upon four years of study and of fun. An impressive prom, the hubbub of Valenian Day, the excitement of award night are now only memories. My halls are silent. The noisy chatter has ceased. But I am waiting, waiting for another class, another year to renew my spirit.

The VHS thinclads under Coach Kenneth Pifer com- pleted the track season undefeated in all dual and tri- angular meets. Setting new school records were Don Horan in the 220 yard dash (:23.1), the half mile relay team-Dave Hill, Dave Carlson, Don Horan, and Mike Carlin (1:32.6), and Dave Carlson in the low hurdles (: 19.5) and high hurdles (: 15.3). Highlighting the sea- son was the state track meet. Representing Valpo were pole vaulter Dave Hill, hurdler Dave Carlson, and con- ference, sectional, and regional champ, miler Earl Deal. At the state Deal placed first, one tenth of a second from the all time record (4:19.9). Deal, Hill, and other out- standing cindermen return next year to match the 1963 record-breaking season. Viking spirit is displayed by both crowd and miler Earl Deal as Deal breaks Valpo Relay mile record at Boucher Field. Deal was the first Viking cinderman under Coach Ken Pifer to win first place honors at the state meet. JV TRACK — FRONT ROW: R. White, manager, B. Risley, C. Jankowski, P. Sutherlin, P. Barker. M.

Ralph Krieger, A1 Gott, and Tom Linkimer led the Viking sluggers to a team batting average of .259. Robert Rhoda has been coaching the team since baseball returned to the spring sports cur- riculum in 1958. This year A1 Gott received the Tilton Baseball Award, given to the senior excelling in athletic profi- ciency, practice attendance, personality and attitude, and academic accomplishment.

Dave Diersen, VHS junior, received the championship trophy for scoring the lowest aver- age, 40.1, throughout the season. Two lettermen, Ron Hanna and Dave Butterfield, will not return to the squad next year, but the team has high expectations of the incoming sophomores.

Spring Beauty Highlights Close of Athletic ear SPRING BEAUTY COURT — STANDING: Jackie Peck, Janet Froberg, Pam Smith, princess; Pat Slavey, Jane Wilson, Diana Fischer. SITTING: Belle Haggerty, queen. The Valpo Relays took place April 30, 1963, at Bouch- er Field. Tension mounted in the crisp, night air as Hammond snatched the lead the Vikings took fourth place. To add to the excitement, the 1963 Spring Beauty Court, chosen by the track teams, was disclosed. They were Diana Fischer, Janet Froberg, Belle Haggerty, Jane Nelson, Jacki Peck, Pat Slavey, and Pam Smith. The announcement of the Queen, Belle Haggerty, and Princ- ess, Pam Smith, was held over until the Spring Beauty Dance which was sponsored by the Pep Club and held in the Jefferson Junior High Cafetorium on May 4. Track co-captains Ed Soliday and Dave Carlson admire Spring Beauty Queen Belle Haggerty. At Valpo Relays, Pep Club sponsor, Mr. Maiers, presents a red rose to each Spring Beauty candidate. Dur- ing the meet, the student body votes on their choice for queen. Oklahoma Woman Talk! What deviltry can “Aunt Eller” Smith be cooking up now! Can “Laurey” Prahl still hook “Curly” Hildreth? “Aunt Eller” Smith, recipient of the Best Actress Award, sings “Oklahoma” in the finalo as “Laurey” Prahl and “Curly” Hil- dreth, no w happily married, join in. “Curly” Hildreth foresees the future when poor “Jud” Johnson will be dead. Can “Will” Peterson ever tame the wild, impetuous “Ado Annie” Forszt! Junior girls, armed with chicken wire, whito napkins, and crepe paper, deco- rate for the Prom. The Prom committee chairmen and their dates pause for a moment, receiving deserved gratitude for a job well done. Southern Silhouette “Southern Silhouette " was the theme of the 1963 edi- tion of the Junior-Senior Prom held Friday, May 24, from 8:30 to 11:30 at Boucher Gymnasium. Approxi- mately two hundred couples attended. An enormous white southern mansion accented with four white pil- lars and green shutters covered the length and breadth of the stage. Decorating the walls were black silhou- ettes on a sky blue background: these scenes depicted a southern garden party. Tables and chairs along the edges of the dance floor provided a cabaret arrange- ment; adorning the center was a Grecian fountain sil- houetted with soft blue lights. Hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks were served at the refreshment table by planta- tion slaves. At 9:30 the junior and senior class presi- dents, Scott Vickers and Bruce Marten, and their dates led the Grand March. Crowning a spectacular eve- ning the couples danced to the music of Jerry Sox and his band. Andy Fitzer and Robert Fritts brave the heights preparing the southern mansion for the Junior-Senior Class Prom. 126 Greeting couples at the entrance, Pat Kane and Mike Carlin give Sarah Swanson her bid. Highlighting the Prom evening was the Grand March led by junior class president and vice-president, Scott Vickers and Edd Stipp, and senior class president and vice-president, Bruce Marten and Terry Wood. 127 VHS Students Emanate Renewed Spring Vigor " Pack rat Linda Herman scrounges out year’s accumulation of locker trash.

With renewed courage the seniors leave Valparaiso University Chapel after Baccalaureate. The Baccalaureate Service for the 1963 graduating class was held Sunday, June 2, at the Valparaiso Uni- versity Chapel. The Reverend Raymond King of the First Baptist Church conducted the service, and Dr. P. R. Stevens of the First Christian Church assisted. On the following Thursday, June 6, 1963, the nine- teenth annual Commencement was held in the Boucher Gymnasium where 202 seniors were graduated. The Valparaiso High School Choir sang “Halls of Ivy " and the Symphonic Band played “Concert Overture.” Hal Hart presented the valedictory address, “Stop the World.” Dr. Robert Bruce Pierce, Pastor of the Chi- cago Temple Methodist Church, wanted to teach the seniors something they could not have learned in their high school careers. He showed them how to " Capture Elephants.” Principal King Telle, assisted by Mr. James Mundy and Bruce Marten, senior class president, pre- sented the diplomas. To the strains of “Ceremonial” the seniors marched from the gymnasium as alumni of Valparaiso High School, undergraduates to future des- tinies.

At Commencement Dr. Bruce Pierce addresses the 1963 graduating class. He teaches the seniors how to “Cap- ture Elephants.” Seniors relax before the formalities of Baccalaureate. Graduating senior girls pause a minute for a last bit of primping be- fore the Commencement exercises. Principal Telle presents each gradu- ate a diploma symbolizing the termi- nus of four years of hard work. 131 Senior Scholars Hal Hart, valedictorian Philip Deters, salutatorian Mary Stinchfield Ruth Fulton John Eichenseher Robert Eiler Leah Powell Carol Waldschmidt Jack Swelstad Stephen Platt Richard Haines Barbara Raines Barbara Benton Ralph Chester Linda Harkin National Merit Finalist — Hal Hart National Merit Semi-Finalists Ruth Fulton Stephen Platt Leah Powell Gary Widiger Science Award Jack Swelstad Bucci Music Award Paul Ehnes Choir Award John Sanford Dramatics Award Leah Powell Commercial Department Award — Cheryl Doelling D.A.R.
