Let us unveil for you . . . a phenomenon as subtle as a honeysuckle breeze as boisterous as a lunchtime crowd a fever that instills an absent-mindedness yet, a zeal for change a fresh warmness that lures boys onto baseball diamonds and minds out of open windows This is a Spring, a Spring that creates happy-go-lucky seniors provident juniors confident sophomores.

This presentation, which was open to the pub- lic, was warmly received by an audience of over four hundred. The acts, selected from audi- tions by many students and teachers, included folk singing, modern dancing, pantomimes, and dramatic recitations. Due to the overwhelming success of the program. Drama and Debate hopes to stage further performances under the guidance of Mrs. Heckman and Miss Connors.

At the conference track finals in Gary, Valpo was able to win 33 points and finish second to the Froebel Blue Devils.

Since he and Bill Anderson are the only graduating seniors, next year ' s squad has a promising outlook. 1 4 5 Bill Anderson recaps team scores with Gary Thayer at the Valpo E C Roose velt. and Gary Roosevelt tri meet E C Roosevelt won over both teams “Moonlit Carousel " At 10:00 Junior and Senior class officers led the Grand March around gaily-colored carousel Attired in a gay ' 90 ' s costume, Mr. Follis presents bids to couples visit- ing his pink and white striped ticket booth 146 reminisces gay ' 90 ' s " Moonlit Carousel, " the 1967 prom theme, brought a gay ' 90 ' s carnival to VHS gym on May 19. A charming entrance of grass, gray brick, a fountain, and white lawn furniture wel- comed the guests to the old-fashioned amuse- ment park. At a striped ticket booth near the door, couples exchanged their passes for pink bids. A twenty-foot high carousel topped by a pink and white striped canopy dominated the floor ' s center. Soft lights lent a moonish luster to the four blue and lavender horses mounted on the structure ' s base. Chalk murals of summer parks and fashions of the era enclosed a dozen tables on the stage. Girls in pinafores and boys in shoestring ties served punch at a gay blue and white refreshment stand. At one booth manne- quins awaited customers for kisses at 25 cents each while another stand advertised, " Games — Two for 15C. " At 10:00 all the couples, led by junior and senior class officers, began the Grand March around the carousel. As 11:30 ap- proached the 220 couples departed from their delightful evening under the " Moonlit Carousel. " Rich Coolman.

However, the glam- our of Senior Day stood unchanged as the roar of happy graduates at Baccalaureate practice invaded the quiet school hours of diligent underclassmen. For the first time in several years, all of the seniors appeared in green gowns at Baccalaureate on June 4. Msgr. John Charlebois of St. Paul ' s Catholic Church delivered the main address. On the following Thursday evening, June 8, Commencement Exer- cises were held for the Class of 1 967. The invocation and benediction were given by Rev. L. E. Myers of the Nazarene Church. In an effort to streamline the program, the invitation to an out-of-town speaker was omitted. Mr. G. Warren Phillips, Superintendent of Valparaiso Community Schools, spoke briefly on today ' s educational standards. After the presentation of diplomas the entire class performed the turning of the tassels, which was met by a large ovation from the audience. In his address. " Charge to the Class. " Mr G.

We knew not everyone would like it. But we wanted the students to thi nk — to stop and say ”1 never noticed that kid before " or " I never even knew we had a boiler room. " No yearbook merely happens. It takes a well co-ordinated team with each member knowing, understanding, and completing his job. Our ' s was a team but we were more to each other than that VALENIAN was more than a mere extra curricular activity. For a lot of us, it took most of our time. But the time went quickly, too quickly Without Peg, Mary, Kathy, both Joyces, Patti, Tina, and Linda VALENIAN would not be the same Mr Brown served many purposes — yearbook advisor, counselor, and sometimes referee A simple " thank you” is not enough The 1967 VALENIAN staff hopes that we succeeded in giving the students a fresh and novel look at VHS The type for the 1967 VALENIAN was set in Versatile type style 8 on 8 and 8 on 10 for captions, 1 2 on 14 for body copy, and 12 on 18 for division page copy; and Univine 36 point for running heads and 72 point for division page label heads The book was printed on Colophon Ivory 80 pound paper by Home Mountain Publishing Company, Valparaiso, and bound by Zonne Bindery, Chicago The cover was designed by Joyce Stephan and made by Durand Manufacturing Company, Chicago.

Gail Hough, a junior, died in St. Francis Hospital. Evanston. Illinois, on May 10. Shortly after the close of the school year VHS was further saddened by the death of graduate Charles Kilmer in Porter Memorial Hospital on July 30. 152 Valenian 1967 Published by Valparaiso High School Valparaiso, Indiana Volume 51 This is a year of awakening perception Come with us as we take a strikingly novel look at Valparaiso High School as we re-acquaint ourselves with each facet of this educational institution. Share with us the new experience of seeing our school in a different perspective. Adventure with us away from the monotony of everyday life erased by appreciative eyes, discerning eyes. Discover with us a crisp clarity in old sounds a brighter color in repetitious actions a depth of understanding reached because Our minds have grasped the need to arouse our dormant capabilities of viewing school life. Now each sight, each sound, each experience will not pass unnoticed and this year will be remembered as The Year of Awakened Perception. We are looking. . . at pieces of wood and tile and steel thousands of bricks windows in rows countless stairs and merging hallways desks, blackboards, doors. . . this is a building. Our eyes have merely looked at inanimate objects in dead surroundings. But now let us divorce ourselves from the familiarity of common sights and view from unique angles the building which is much more than the multiplicity of geometric forms. For when the living enter in, its body of walls, casements, stair-wells is brought to life. Through its corridors they walk — the lifeblood of the future. Through its veins flows the symphony of knowledge played from the lips of the young. And within its body is nurtured the genius of youth. Enter. . . the dormant building lives Search. . . and adults are more than names 6 Adults. . . speaking of knowledge preparing mid-day nourishment maintaining building conditions occupying positions of importance. We have looked upon them as mere essentials of education. . . forms, words, actions. Their true identities we must now seek with open minds. Our understanding prompts their metamorphosing from functional mechanisms into HUMAN BEINGS with minds and souls with wisdom and compassion dedicated to influencing the Student in the refinement of his assets in the cultural development of his being in the molding of his free mind. HUMAN BEINGS guides of the growth toward maturity minstrels of the song of the intellect. We are seen. . . walking by two ' s in rows of cheering hundreds with laughing blond hair paisley and loafers. We are seen. . . in correlation with accomplishments or failures characterized by our surface identities labled as " students. " Students are not complete entities for we are more, infinitely more — WE ARE YOUTH perhaps bewildered by changes, yet Fully aware that Our hands, can put life into clay or place meaning on paper. Our eyes can view offered methods of instruction so that Our minds will comprehend ensuing courses of action. WE ARE YOUTH perhaps unsure of our life ' s course, yet Filled with the necessity to express our thoughts to give love and friendship to test the boundaries of knowledge, finding them limitless. We, the student, the youth stand behind every accomplishment, every failure. We are the source of spirit the voices of enthusiasm the backbone of loyalty. 9 Giving. . . more than just time Perpetual movement. . . conversing, studying, eating, participating. . . Yet behind each movement lies the father of all happenings — ENERGY to desire change or improvement to create beauty from nothingness to fail as well as accomplish. Look not upon the outcome as the entirity of a production but as a segment of elements comprising a Complete happening from its birth to that wf ich is noticed first — The end result this fragment which time may easily erase Except when the entirety of an activity the completeness of success or failure, the things we do are seen in the right perspective, in the totality of their being 10 Explore. . .and familiar surroundings acquire depth We have motivated the alteration of a meaningless school year into one which is Filled with life, purpose, significant qualities. A school year which will never be effaced from our memories because We have stimulated our minds have opened our eyes have awakened our perspective and, accordingly, marvel at the joy of Discovery as ancient as the hemisphere as fresh as tomorrow 13 ACADEMICS Academics. . . pieces of paper, 1 776 sharpened pencils, El Espanol, sulfuric acid E = me 2 , grades. . . only symbols.

The staff includes: Mr. Henkel - head guidance counselor, Mr. Hil- dreth, Mrs. Bauer, Mr. Sweet, and Mr. Ciciora Each is trained to deal with problems which may arise in the course of daily events. Approximately 950 students met with their counselor to discuss schedules, academic standings, and preparations for life after high school. As always, the depart- ment has information on technical schools, uni- versities, and colleges available to all students. Seniors interested in college may attend talks and counseling sessions with representatives from vari- ous schools. The guidance department also super- vises the administering of college entrance and placement tests which enable many students to receive scholarships. The department has the re- sponsibility of each individual students concern- ing their personality or character adjustment. High school life becomes a challenge for the Sophomore student and a simple habit for the Senior. A guid- ance counselor is taken for granted by some, but also greatly depended upon by many. Mrs Ransom, secretary for the guid- ance department searches through the junior class files for pertinent information This department pos sesses a complete academic and per sonnel file for each student dating from grade school through senior year basics are reviewed and fundamen tals are polished as students in Miss Craig ' s English 3 class combine gram mar knowledge while writing themes Heritage, a part of language. . .

The literature course deals with general background in all forms of literature and one specified study of Shakespeare ' s Julius Caesar. Juniors are re- quired to take either composition and the basic fundamentals of creative writing or speech. The art of public speaking and debate is taught by Mr. Brown Junior English dealt with the chronological development of our American literature Mrs. Heckman taught this course. Senior English courses are taught in a manner that prepares the student for the rigorous English courses he will face in college English 7, taught by Mr. Brown, emphasizes English literature — its ideas, history, and creators. English 8, taught by Mrs. Bowman and Mr. Griesbaum, polished fundamentals and basics, and studied in detail expository writing. 28 Miss Flynn, a new instructor in the English department, clarifies the use of verbals to puzzled third semester student.

Mr. Rhoda teaches architectual and machine drawing, and General shop. Mr. Pollock begins his day teaching a Vocational machine shop class at 7:00 a m. — a fact known to few VHS students. A variety of articles are produced by all the shop classes, and through constructive efforts the boys learned the basic fundamentals in these classes. In home economics, Mrs. Albers and Miss Warner in- form the future homemakers about the necessity of ac- quiring varied skills through courses in home manage- ment, home nursing, child care, meal management, and advanced sewing. Industrial arts and home economics relate closely; each stressed the importance of an in- formative, knowledgeable background for organized home planning and living.

Sieve Buck mentally hashes over the assignment just completed in his phy- sical science class Discovery through trial and error The science and mathematics departments offer a wide range of elementary and advanced courses in math and both natural and physical sciences. Mr. Chenoweth, Mr. Williams, and Mr. William Bailey shared the chemistry and physics fields. Mr. Loomis taught applied science and geometry. The laboratories acquired two new cen- trifuges and new electrical equipment for the physics students. First year chemistry and physics were divided into a terminal and academic course for the first time. The terminal course offered a general education for those who did not want to continue the studies in the field; the academic was offered to those who did plan to further their research in the sciences. Mr. Ellis, Miss Norris, and Mr. Scott taught algebra and geometry. VHS enters two math contests every y ear. The math department sponsored close to 50 students in the National Math Contest. Anyone who was checked by the math depart- ment could take the 40 multiple choice test. The Invi- tational Math Contest, begun in 1964 and held in Elkart, involved twelve schools in northern Indiana. A team of nine members, chosen by the faculty, represented VHS again this year. Through their expanded p jgram, the VHS science and math departments provided the ad- vanced training necessary for tomorrow ' s computer world.

Electives are world history, economic geography, and soci- ology. Mr. Ciciora, Mr. Herrick, and Mr. Reggie teach world history. They assign book reports and maps every six weeks, show films periodi- cally, and discuss current events from " Every- week, " a scholastic newspaper. The concen- trated study areas deal with eastern and western civilizationsfromtheir early beginnings to modern times. Mr. Herrick, teaching world history, and Mr. Murphy, teaching U S. history, usually give five to ten quizzes every six weeks and assign one or two book reports. Usually three weeks are designated in the world history class for the study of Communism and its history. Civics and economics, taught by Miss Connors and Mr. Edquist, are the subjects which prepare the student for responsible citizenship. Civics involves all phases of American government — from local politics to national administration. Economics gives the student insight and per- spective regarding American financial dealings here and abroad. Miss Connor ' s Civics students held their own primaries — complete with party leaders, campaigns, demonstra tions, and " roof-raising " speeches Linda Gray gives a representative speech for the Democratic party dur- ing the campaign rallies In sociology class Becky Kegg. Fran cine Milianta. Larry Rouch.

This and more was possible in the study of foreign languages. Mrs. Bauer ' s second, third, and fourth year Spanish classes were involved with studies of the contemporary Spanish vocabularly and culture. Third year students Frank and An- tonio Hernandez, South American exchange students, added the true foreign flavor to their Spanish classes, as did two of our own fourth year students who visited Monterey during the summer — Barry Toth and Jeff Meyerowitz. Mrs. Bowman taught second year Latin, emphasizing not only the mechanics of the language, but the culture behind it. Mrs. Green ' s first year Ger- man students drilled on proper word pronuncia- tion and memorization while second year stu- dents, under the direction of Miss Flynn, delved into the mysteries of German culture and the complex grammer structure. Mrs. Green accom- panied the third and fourth year students on a trip to Germantown in Chicago and another trip to Kalamazoo to see a corps of German actors. Though the beautiful language of French is as popular as German, it is new to the high school this year. Second year French was offered for the first time under the guidance of Mrs. Howser, also new this year to VHS. As an aid to more precise pronuncia tion.

Mr Sweet teaches the basic functions of the body and mind to his students and supple- ments his lectures with several informative if possibly " gory " demonstrations. Also included in this study is a history of various diseases that have plagued man for centuries and the proper method of caring for the body by keeping it clean and healthy Phy- sical excercise is a major method of train- ing a healthy body. Two years of physical education are required of every VHS stu- dent. The classes, taught by Mrs. Frost and Mr. Sweet were aimed at increasing co- ordination, stamina, and team ability They followed the regular program which included basketball, field hockey, volleyball, and track with the addition of a more involved gymnastics program. New and welcome this year was an elective gym class for seniors interested in a physical education major. Every student has become more aware of his physical and mental impor- tance through the efforts of the gym and Health and Safety classes at VHS.

A sundry of papier-mache animals were created including a brown and yellow giraffe and a flower-covered pig. The students also created mobiles, and also mosiac objects from a wood base and multi-colored tiles. The classes delved into the problem of design and per- spective. The Jaycee ' s sponsored a contest for best representation of event or phrase typifying the Indiana sesquicentennial. Winner of the grand prize was Charlotte Rigg. and Sharon Koepke won the first prize for the high school division. Driver ' s training was again a very popular course at VHS although it doesn ' t earn a credit. Students take it so that they will be well prepared when it is time to get their license. All students taking the course must be 1 5 and have a beginner ' s or driver ' s educa- tion permit. Two hours are spent in the course week- ly — one in the classroom learning rules of the road and how the car operates, and the other in the car in actual driving time. Mr Stokes explains the steps to start a car to three sophomore boys Drivers Training courses taught students fun- damentals and driving responsibili- ties with experience behind the wheel 40 The work of the art students.

This year, more students, especially seniors, en- rolled in typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, busi- ness law, business English, and office practice than ever before. Those taking the complete busi- ness courses experience three semesters of actual typing class, and a fourth switching from the typing class routine to that of office practice. Business teachers stressed the fact that in a very short while many students would not be merely conduct- ing class work, but would actually be practicing these office skills on the job. This is especially true in second year shorthand class and bookkeep- ing. Girls in third semester shorthand took four to six letters in dictation at the beginning of the hour, then transcribed those letters on the type- writer one of two ways — mailable or unmailable. Bookkee ping students learned to keep records of all types of business transactions. Business English students reviewed rules of grammar before set- ting out to compose letters of sales promotion, apology, invitation, and inter office communica- tion. The student graduating from such classes is well prepared for a successful business career Mr Stokes [joints out an important passage in the text during his sixth hour consumer economics class The value of products and budgeting time and money are emphasized Quiet typewriters, vacant seats, and a ray of afternoon sun — the end of a busy day While Mrs Bigler dictates a letter in English, first hour shorthand students write the letter in shorthand, using the example in their books only if neces- sary 43 The 1966-67 choir officers are Bill Gregory, president; Cindy Dauber- man, vice-president; Lois Williamson, secretary; Chuck Scott, treasurer; and Miriam Linkimer. librarian Swing Choir — (L to R ) P Lindberg, accompanist; C Dauberman, K Har desty, D Excell, J Rowen.

Under the direction of Mr. Bernard Butt, the choir took an active part in school con- voc ations and special programs presented to the student body. They also attracted large audiences at their public concerts. The choir is an annual participant in the Indiana Solo and Ensemble Contest. At this event the choir has distinguished itself by winning a number of awards and by achieving a high rating in the state contest held in Indianapolis. In its third year, the girls ' glee club, now containing thirty members, is an- other vital and growing part of the depart- ment. It, too, performed for the school, public, and various contests. Among impor- tant sections of the music department is the Swing Choir. During the Christmas season, the members, chosen according to ability and academic record, brought cheer to Porter Memorial Hospital, Whispering Pines, and all of the city schools. The sound of the Swing Choir ' s Christmas carols has certainly become a Christmas tradition in the Valparaiso community. Girls’ Glee Club — Fi rst row: (I to r.) J Scott. P Farney, S Evans. J Woods.

Mr. Miller chose a wide variety of music, encompassing such noted works as Sousa ' s rhythmic marches, Mendelssohn ' s quiet melodies, and Paul Yoder ' s contemporary beat music. The band performed for the public at the annual Christmas concert on the night of De- cember 13. The excellence of the band was again displayed in their performance at the various con- tests in which they participated. Twenty-six solos and 38 ensembles attended the Solo and Ensemble Contest on February 1 1 at Liberty High School. First place winners from this contest attend the state contest later in the same month. In April they competed in the contest in Fort Wayne. Again this year several methods of earning money were at- tempted by this organization. Parents of the mem- bers sold refreshments during the football games. The annual ham dinner was held at Thomas Jeffer- son Junior High School. Although the band tried to schedule the " Associations " for a concert, they were not successful. The band contributed much to our school spirit during the football season by its excellent half time shows; during the Christmas season with its school convocation presentation; and during the spring convocation by its presenta- tion of " spring fever " melodies. 46 The tempo is carried through by the brass section — military marching style Familiar melodies — contemporary beats The woodwind section solos, strain- ing for perfection during a concert band practice Band Officers: (L to R ) Marsha Richardson.

The senior class has the responsibility of setting a good example for underclassmen. But seniors are also involved in completing academic requirements, listening to repre- sentatives from numerous colleges, seeking advice in the guidance office, taking col- lege boards and placement tests, and filling out forms and applications. Suddenly it is June, and the senior is caught between yesterday and tomorrow, between fond memories and the anticipation of what lies ahead.

Perhaps it is college, a business career, the armed forces, or some special training occupation. As a determining fac- tor for college bound students, the aca- demic grades of Juniors are extremely im- portant. Prom time is in May. Tradition- ally, the Juniors start work on the Prom early in the year in order to present it to the Seniors in the spring. Bill Nielson, presi- dent; Tom Hart, vice-president; Jeanie Johnston, secretary; and Paul Tank, trea- surer are this year ' s Junior class officers responsible for assigning Prom commit- tees, and collecting the $4.00 class dues It is always quite a busy year for the Juniors, with many decisions to make and change.

They scheduled homerooms every two weeks so that the representatives would have a chance to tell their constituents of the Council ' s plans and to hear the students ' opinions Along with the new ideas, the Council continued some of the projects started in the previous years. Again this year the members helped the guidance department organize and carry out Career Day They put up the swim records in the gym and brought the track records up-to-date Members tried to keep discipline on the stairways and, gener- ally, to maintain the high standard of conduct at VHS They also launched a clean-up campaign to help improve the looks of the school building. 84 Student Council member, Lenore Koenig, finishes the white seat num- bers on the freshly painted green bleachers The Student Council pro- ject made an improvement in Boucher gymnasium Gerry Bowman.

The offi- cers contributed more information to meetings, or- ganized special project committees, donated more time and interest to our minor sports, and added spe- cialities to our already famous cheering block. Green gloves highlighted the beanies and white blouses of the girls ' section, and the boys wore their traditional green ties and armbands. Routine practices for both shaker and glove section were the keys to the success of these improved ideas. This year ' s sponsors gave much time and effort to the new projects as well as chaperoning the Homecoming, Spring, and " aftergame " dances. Participation in Pep Club not only created more active school spirit, but also resulted in many a victory for the VHS athletes. 87 The 1966-67 Boy Cheerleaders are (L to R ) Mike Wheele (in air), Larry Salberg.

Another basketball game be- gins and the Pep Band enlivens the spirit and en- courages the mental participation by its marches, pop show tunes. The fifteen boys, chosen accord- ing to achievement in band by Mr. Miller, the band director, introduce the Vikings with their version of " Sweet Georgia Brown. " This traditional intro- duction, drums assisting to cheers, trumpet- charges, and the usual ad-libbed arrangements all add up to the vibrating atmosphere of each home basketball game. " A-J-A-X, clean ' em! " This year ' s four boy cheerleaders aid their girl counterparts in energetic yells. Cheer after cheer, the representatives lead the student body in or- ganized team spirit. Behind their flips, splits, and precision timing goes hours of practice among themselves. Practice starts early in the summer and continues all year. Varsity try-outs are held in the spring and Junior Varsity try-outs in the fall. The tryout routine includes a spread, run, two consecutive jackknives, a head-toe, splits, two chants, and leading the student body in the school song. Their imagination, energy, and skill all contribute to one of the best pep sections in the region. 88 This year ' s varsity (green sweaters) and |unior varsity (white sweaters) Cheer leaders are Front C Makovsky; Second row C Dauberman, B Harvey; Third row J Bricker.

Student secretaries type tests, run errands, correct papers, and do filing for the teachers to whom they are assigned. Guidance girls file cards and other per- tinent student information. Mrs. Ransom often has these girls arrange the guidance bulletin boards and take messages to students in study hall re- garding their schedule conferences. Attendance office girls work closely with Mr. Doane, Miss Brady, and Mrs. Chenoweth. They must pick up the attendance slips first thing in the morning, alphabetize the names, type up the absentee list, and deliver this list to the teachers. Later in the day the girls record the absentees in the permanent record book so they can be transferred to the re- port cards. One girl is assigned to the nurse ' s office every hour. She is responsible for the students who use the facilities because of sudden illness. After the hour is over, the student is sent to the office and back to class or home. All office girls have a responsibility to keep the facts they learn in strictest confidence; therefore, these girls are of a very high caliber.

The celebration began when the senior girls walked Cheddar, the Trojan horse, and Vic- tor Viking around the school block. Later in the afternoon, the seniors presented a skit to the entire student body, in which " Victor Mouse " had the lead role of a hope- less failure. This was the first year the tra- ditional boy ' s homecoming court was omit- ted from the release of 400 green and white balloons. During the half time, the Home- coming Court entered onto the field in seven white convertibles and Sue German intro- duced the girls. After the ceremonies were over, the Vikes returned and completed the game with a victorious 20 point lead. The dance began at 9:30 At approximately 10:45, Gerry Bowman presented the 1966- 67 Homecoming Court with Jill Johnson, queen, and Brenda Harvey, princess. The fantasy ended shortly before midnight. Homecoming will be remembered as being a uniqueness, a victory, and a day full of ch aos and celebration.

Mr. Gardin, head librarian, assigns different duties to the girls the hour that they are in the library. In the midst of all the mis- placed books and disordered catalogs, the stu- dent librarian can usually manage to find what is missing and put things back in order. Their presence is most important to the student when he finds himself suddenly lost in the forest of shelves and hardbacks. New to the library this year is the guidance library lo- cated in Mr. Telle ' s former office. All college catalogs are kept here. It also contains all vital information concerning various schools. The guidance librarians file this material so it is readily available to both the students and the guidance department Lively discussions and experiments are typi- cal in the science labs on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month when the Science Club holds its meetings. The club, sponsored by Mr. William Bailey, Mr. Wil- liams, and Mr. Chenoweth, is open to all VHS students who are interested in virtually any field of science. President, Creig Smith; Vice- President, Larry Salberg; and Secretary- Treasurer, Robin Pierce led the members in their work with electronic kits, in building radio receivers and transmitters, and in dis- cussing many timely subjects of value. Masses of wire, a variety of test tubes, and list after list of unproven theorems are common working material for this group of scientific-minded students. 97 Hi-Y Ushers: (L. to R.)

For the first time, Hi-Y sold lightbulbs throughout the community to help raise the funds in its treasury. Some of this money was used to purchase the french blue blazers, which the group wears to visit churches and to other functions. Another part of the money was used to help support an Asian boy under the Christian Childrens ' Fund, Inc. Early in the year, the club held a hayride and dance. They also fully sponsored this year ' s Christ- mas dance Later in the year the club sponsored the annual Hi-Y— faculty game, an event the whole school seemingly looks forward to and enjoys. As in previous years, Hi-Y furnished the ushers for all home basketball games. Every other Sunday, the boys, as a group, attended a different church, and participated in its services — an activity that has been traditional for several years. The spirit, determination, and dependability of these boys proved to be overwhelmingly successful, serving others in many ways and making this year ' s Hi-Y an organization for VHS to be proud of. 99 Preparation for a teaching career Gail Lightcap. student teaching sixth grade at Parkview Elementary School under the supervision of Miss Ander son. helps students with their arith metic as part of her daily duties IS5 100 Once again Mrs. Bowman and Mr. Williams spon sored the Future Teachers of America and cadet teachers.

The cadet teacher may choose the elementary school at which she wishes to teach for either one or two hours each day for four days a week for nine weeks. After com pleting nine weeks of cadet teaching she is given a grade by the supervising teacher. At this time she can go to a different school, or teach in a higher or lower grade in the same school. F T A and cadet teaching helps prepare the student who is planning a teaching career. Teaching fundamentals and child psychology are discussed during the F T.

As in the past, V-teens sponsored the dance to raise money for the Heart Fund. Miss Craig and Mrs. Calza- corto were faculty sponsors and chaperones. The 1967 King of Hearts court. Bill Anderson, King; Dave Grom, Prince; Gerry Bowman, Sam Campbell, Frank Heckman, Denny Southers, and Don Vandrey were escorted to the throne by V-teens officers and board members. Presi- dent Jill Johnson placed the crown on King Anderson and congratulated him with a kiss. The decor, created by co-chairmen Sharon Koepke and Carol Rueter consisted basically of red and white hearts and cupids, highlighted by the outline of a crown in twinkling lights on the back wall of the gym. Refreshments of punch and heart shaped cookies were furnished by V-teens program chairman, Jan Williamson. The " Grim Reapers " provided the music from 8:00 to almost 1 1 .00 p.m. The court was an- nounced at 10:15, and the ceremonies were brought to a close with the coronation dance led by Jill and Bill. Crown bearer, Amy Belaschky, and scepter bearer, Keith Domke, added to the festivities by joining in the dancing. So, to the final waltz, the King of Hearts dance was a suc- cess.

" The V-Teens disassociated themselves from the national club and chartered their own. Even though there is a new constitution, the fundamental principles of the club are the same. Again this year charity and service are foremost in the minds of the members. Two girls volunteer each month to bake a cake for the birthdays of the people in the old folks home. At Christmas time they gave money to a needy family. The King of Hearts Dance again raised money for the Heart Fund. V-Teens established some other new projects also. The Booming 60 s Dance, held in November, was based upon the Mod theme in London The members held a candy sale of Butter Bits to earn extra money for the club. V Teens members voted for the three senior boys of their choice for the King of Hearts court during a special meeting held in the new study hall on Tuesday before the dance 107 " A New Day is Dawning theme for Hi-Y ' s first Christmas dance " Christmas at Dawn " was a composite of snow- covered Christmas trees and painted murals de- picting the true spirit of Christmas. The Hi-Y fully sponsored the dance this year for the first time Dance committees were organized under Bob Rich- mond and Paul Kruger, co-chairmen. Hi-Y spon- sor, Mr. Follis, supervised all work and special construction. The Hi-Y purchases approximately 25 pine trees and sprayed them with artificial snow. Tables were set up along the side walls with a lighted candle on each of them The trees were placed between the tables throughout the gym. One big tree, strung with tiny blue lights, was placed in the center of the gym. A huge chalk mural, depicting the scene on the eve of Christ ' s birth, covered the folding stage doors. The couples enjoyed dancing from 8:30 to 1 1 .00 p.m. to the traditional Christmas songs played by the Glen Martin combo At approximately 10:30, the co- chairmen and their dates led the grand march The dance was complete in every way except for lack of snow on the outside. Still the merriment of the season was enjoyed by all on December 1 7, 1966.

The year opened with a Coke-tail party at which the officers and board explained to the prospec- tive members the proposed program for the year An officer or board member took one major sport and presented it to the new members in skit form. The sister system and point program were also ex- plained at this time. Initiation was in the first part of October All new members were attired in some type of an " Off-beat " costume, and were required to en- dure several tasks asked of them by their big sisters before active membership into the organization. Each Friday the club sponsored girl ' s sports suitable to the time of the year. In the fall, field hockey was usually played. Later in the year the girls participated in acti- vities in the gym. These activities varied throughout the winter and included volleyball and basketball. Gymnastics and tumbling highlighted the program. Several members also bowled in the Telegraphic Bowl- ing Meet at Wellman ' s the first Monday of every month. In the spring the girls went outside again with softball and other spring sports. The year was brought to a close with the annual banquet, the receiving of awards, and the announcement of the new officers for the coming year. GAA girls had the choice of playing basketball, volleyball, or participating in the gymnastics program during the months in which it was too cold to be outdoors after school 1 1 1 Mark Cole, editor, and Use Stage managing editor, discuss the layouts for the next Valpost with their ad visor.

Mark Cole, editor-in-chief, made certain that columnists had turned in their assignments on time. He also as- signed special duties weekly to the reporters Popular columns included " Grostefunnies, " written by Duane Grostefon; “Senior Interviews, " by Lenore Koenig; and Don Vandrey ' s column, “Viewpoint on Sports. " Editorials were usually based on current subjects of student interest. These included critical comments about organizations, faculty-student relations, student problems, or perhaps replies to other editorials.

" With this as Valenian ' s theme, the staff set out to show the unusual in the common things and to discover the new things little known about VHS. The photo staff, Joyce Casbon, editor; and Kathie Mitchell, photographer; talked to professional photograph- ers and examined many different books and maga- zines to get ideas. Tina Vickers, a member of the copy staff, added the literary touch to the opening section and divider pages. Copy Editor Patti Ned- berg collaborated with the rest of the copy staff to write the remaining portion of the book. One of the other fresh ideas was conceived by the art and lay-out departments, Joyce Stephan and Mary Durand. Their idea was to use bigger and more meaningful pictures. They obtained many of the Business Manager Linda Clouse keeps purchase orders for books and all receipts up-to-date She also is respon sible for organizing the underclass picture sales and the scheduling of senior portraits lay-out suggestions from Look and Life, but after they had practiced the lay-out technique, they originated their own.

In the busi- ness department, Kathy Ciszek and Linda Clouse handled the records involved in selling books and underclass pictures, and in scheduling senior por- traits. Peg Stoltz, narrative editor, kept abreast of VHS activities and notified the staff. Co-ordin- ating all departments was Dawn Wellman, editor- in-chief. She developed the general format of the book. This year, with the help of Mr. Brown, ad- visor, and many others, the staff hope they have succeeded in portraying a fresh look at VHS. Junior Valeman Staff — (L to R ) Stand- ing B Bretscher.

J Fleming Harriers make history November 5, 1966 — this is a day to re- member. For the first time in the history of Valparaiso, a VHS team won a state champion- ship. The team went to state meet with an over-all record of 22 wins and not a single loss. Under the superior leadership of Coach Evar Edquist, the harriers ran the mushy, snow-covered course at Indianapolis, un- daunted by the biting cold. Out of a 34-man team, six participated in the state meet. Their strides chalked up the points at the South Grove course to an 89 point total. Senior Don Vandrey, twelve seconds ahead of the second place winner, entered the shute at 9:33 to become the 1966 State Champion. Close on Vandrey ' s heels was Jim Barth, stop- ping the clock at 9:54 to place third in the meet. The trophy, the smiles, the handshakes, the glow of accomplishment: all of these were the results of training, of preparation, and pure competitive spirit, a necessity for win- ning which has no substitute. Following their Indianapolis victory, the Varsity Cross Country State Cham pions were honored during a special convocation; at this time they pre sented their trophies to Principal Telle 119 In perfect form, senior letterman Larry Salberg prepares to meet the ball in a down swing Crouched low to the court, Ed Boyd masterfully executes a backhand return Jerry Chenoweth. in his second year of coaching, talks with Jeff Meyero- witz during warm-ups concerning the fine points of form This fall, tennis got well under way in its second year at VHS. Though the netters lost every game of their first season last year, they showed quite an improvement by winning six games out of thirteen. Returning lettermen Ed Boyd, Steve Lutze, Chuck High- lan, Larry Salberg, Bob Delcourt, Jeff Meyerowitz, Bill Gregory, and Eric Thorgren were assets to Coach Chenoweth in the develop- ment of the relatively new team. The tennis team practiced every school night of the season at the Valparaiso University tennis courts. Coach Chenoweth, the varsity coach, feels that next year ' s squad will be even more of an improvement due to experience and per- fection of such skills as precise coordination, graceful movement, and accurate timing. 120 Netters are more successful during second season VARSITY TENNIS Valparaiso Opponents ‘Crown Point 3 2 Hobart 0 5 E.

The Vikings won the sectional title for the eleventh year in a row, but were eliminated after the first game in the Logansport regionals. Chuck Nightingale led the squad in scoring with a total of 396 points — an average of 16.5 points per game. Nightingale also led the team in the free throw department with 110 points out of 137 attempted shots. Coach Sweet told the student body that this was the hardest working team that he has had. This year there were six return- ing seniors, one junior, and three sopho- mores comprising the ten member team Due to the heavy snowstorms, the Vikes had to play five games in one week and were forced to double up in several other weeks. Coach Dale Ciciora was extremely proud of his Junior Varsity squad that finished the season with 15 wins and 5 losses Al Cunningham led the 14 man squad with a total of 178 points and averaging approxi- mately 8 9 points per game. Diligent prac- tice and self-discipline are the key qualities of each member of the team that make it a good one. Coach Sweet and Coach Ciciora tried to develop this attitude in the 1 966-67 Vikings.

Nine seniors and one junior were returning lettermen this year. Managers Kris Korby and Bill Gregory kept all indi- vidual records and took care of travel equipment for away meets. The conference meet, which is based on individual times and not team scores, was held in Whiting on February 4 Valparaiso set 3 new records. Dick Swisher set a new record of 1:09.9 in the 100 yd. butterfly; Greg MacDonald set a new record of 50.7 in the 100 yd. freestyle; and the 400 yd. freestyle relay team set a new record of 3:52.9. Fifteen teams participated in the Sectional meet held on February 1 1 in Griffith. VHS won the meet by finishing 44 points ahead of the second place team. Again, four VHS swimmers broke past records: Greg MacDonald, 50 yd. free- style; Tom Breitzke, diving; Dick Swisher, 100 yd butterfly; and Bill Higer, 400 yd. freestyle. Greg MacDonald became the individual state champion for his third consecutive year. Fourteen swimmers (three alternates) represented VHS in the state meet in Indianapolis on February 18 At that meet Tom Breitzke qualified for Semi-finalist in diving; Greg MacDonald set the new state record in the 100 yd. freestyle; and the Vikes finished seventh as a team.

Two members placed in the Sectional — John Tomczak, 7th, and John Hannon, 3rd The Junior Varsity did considerably better with four wins, five losses, and one tie. Mr. Reggie has hopes for next year ' s team because nineteen experi- enced sophomores are returning. Four members of the teams received special awards. The awards for the most " pins” was given to John Hannon, varsity, and Tim Siebert, junior varsity.

Mr. Ellis sponsored the eight teams again this year and officiated the games. Other officials were football players or gym majors hired from Valparaiso University. The teams usually play about twenty games during the season. But because of the bad weather and snow, the teams could only play about fifteen games. All games were played in Boucher gymnasium, usually on Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m. Intramural basketball helped to provide the needed exercise and sport compe- tition to the boys that would otherwise be in- active in sports during the winter months. Near the close of the season the teams began the play- offs in the " seeded " tournament. By eliminating two teams every week during the tourney, the two top teams that had not been beaten played each other in the championship game. The Rich- mond Raiders, captained by Bob Richmond, arose as the champions with Tom Micklas as leading scorer. Senior John Tapp lead the league in scoring at the end of the season. Good sports- manship in informal competition contributed to the fun and interest in the VHS intramural basket- ball program this year. Marvin Smith is still in the air after tipping the ball through the rim while competing in an intramural tourna ment game The games were played on Tuesday nights in Boucher gym Intramural basketball games become most active when the top two rival teams play each other in a " life or death " game 135 Senior Directory Affeld Linda Pep Club 2.

VHS encounters a March of madness All " Li’l Abner’s " fell into misfortune when the Sadie Hawkins Dance, sponsored by G.A.A., fell on a leap year. Throughout the evening of March 15, man-huntin’ “Daisy Mae ' s” were seen dragging their menfolk before the " Marryin’ Sam’s,” Mr. Chenoweth and Mr. Bird. Both of these " unjustices” of the peace were still per- forming their " unwedded " matrimonies a half hour after the dance ended. The dance was highlighted by the coronation of Pam Ehrsam and Dave Garbison as ‘‘Li’l Abner and Daisy Mae. " The second annual March Madness variety show, sponsored by the Drama and Debate Club, was held in the Thomas Jefferson Junior High School cafetorium on March 22 and 23. Because of the show ' s outstanding success in 1967, the club decided this year to stage two performances and to reserve all seats. The attendance of students, teachers, and parents surpassed even the most optimistic expectations of the club. Over three hundred people were ushered to their seats each night by the members of the National Honor Society. The theme, “Another Opening. Another Show,” became both overture and finale to a potpourri of acts ranging from balance beam stunts and comedy routines to the playing of folk tunes and orchestra melodies. The back- drop, an illuminated collage of wallpaper samples and Old Town posters, was designed by Larry Clifford to reflect the mood of 1968. The hilarious attire of Dave Garbison and Pam Ehrsam won them the flowered and " vegetabled " crowns of “Li ' l Abner and Daisy Mae. ' king and queen of " Dog- patch. U-S-A.” Between acts, a casual exchange of |okes between Chuck New- comb. Mike Lampl and Scott Schafer relaxed and entertained an audience of over three hundred. The " Ballet of the Water Bearers " was comically dramatized by Paul Bretscher and Mike LaBrie. who closed their skit by dousing the startled audience with a pitcherful of popcorn One hundred anxious couples await their choice of the 2-bit. 4-bit. and ft-bit weddings offered by the ' Marryin ' Sam ' s. " The wedding fees, totaling $50. were added to the G.A.A. treasury. 150 At the Winter Sports Banquet.

Bob Witmer was one of 28 players receiving baseball letters from Coach Rhoda at the Spring Sports Banquet. Spring ushers in 1969 officers The varied activities of our school came to a halt with the final banquets of the year, whose settings ranged from a des- sert in the VHS cafeteria to a smorgasbord at Wellman’s. Programs for the evening featured such entertainment as a mother- daughter style show or a guest speaker. Climaxing the social events were the an- nouncements of new officers or the pre- sentations of letters and trophies to out- standing players. Two organizations, the Student Court and the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America, came into being toward the close of the school year. The Student Council initiated the Student Court to take the job of punishing students out of the hands of the administration. Seven judges. Wvn Froberg, jan Shauer. Rinette Griffiths. Don Hunsberger. Bob Grey. Chris Korby. and Tim Clifford, debated solutions to 42 cases during the last part of the year The V.I.C.A.. sponsored by Mr Pollock, en- couraged high school boys to use the talents acquired in machine shop toward their future. The officers for this upcom- ing organization were Gary Mandema h. president: Vernon Hyatte. vice-pre-KieD ' Jim Gast. secretary: and Mark Wade, trea- surer.

Princess Lynette Pion entered, accompanied by Paul Seelig. Ap- plause filled the gym as Dave Garbison escorted the 1968 Spring Beauty Queen Lynne Rhoda to her throne. When the ceremonies ended, cou- ples drifted onto the gym floor to resume dancing to the rhythm of the “Giant Red Jellybean, " a rock group including some VHS students. Near the close of the dance at 11:00. the group staged a dazzling display of strobe lights to fascinate the assembly of students around the bandstand.

Three of these, Mike, Paul, and Larry, went on to the Regional held at Gilroy stadium in Gary, where Larry captured a third place in the pole vault. Larry then journeyed to Indianapolis Harrison High School to rep- resent Valparaiso in the State Meet, where he encoun- tered such schools as Froebel and Gary Roosevelt. Throughout the 1968 season, spectators witnessed out- standing performances by members of the team. Dave Garbison excelled in the 100 yard dash, the 220 yard dash, and the 880 relay, while Paul Kassanits made his best performances in the low hurdles and the long jump. Also displaying ability was Jon Soliday in the 440 yard dash and the mile relay.

Boh Conkling and Boh LauRhery serve couples white cake and fruit punch. To the strains of " Camelot. " couples filed between pairs of court heralds around the " sword in the stone Queen Guenevere and King Arthur were hosts for 250 couples attending the Junior Prom on May 24. Every corner of Boucher gym reflected the theme. “Camelot.” The en- tranceway, transformed under the direction of Nancy LaCount into Merlin s magic forest, featured a mammoth frog, a huge dangling spider, and a fiery-eyed dragon. Merlin himself, portrayed by Mr. Ciciora, solemnly dis- tributed prom bids. After crossing a drawbridge suspended over a moat of pastel crepe paper, couples entered the majestic courtyard of King Arthur. Brilliant banners and flashing shields ornamented the stone walls and towers erected around the gym under the supervision of Jan Stephan. The center, initiated by Debby Korby, displayed the legendary sword in the anvil placed on a massive block of marble. Paul Woidke, who was in charge of lighting, showered the monument in a golden spotlight. Lights il- luminating the wall on the stage, picked out the highlights of two stained glass windows. The stage, having been con- verted into the royal throne-room, featured velvet chairs for Patty O’Dell and Jeff Pennington, who posed as Guene- vere and Arthur. Armoured knights guarded the thrones while make-believe flames danced in the medieval fire- places. Twelve page boys and girls wearing tights and tunics bore silver trays of white cake and fruit punch to each table. Gold-tasseled scrolls set up on the tables were inscribed in Gothic letters quoting these words from the Broadway musical: “Don’t let it be forgot That once there was a spot For one brief, shining moment That was known as Camelot.” Garbed solemnly as Merlin the MaRician. Mr. Ciciora hands Cappy Peller ' s bid to Bill Shriver with a word of wisdom. The bid desiRn was chosen by Janet Smith. 161 Mr. Telle and 282 seniors bid VHS farewell Excitement filled the halls of VHS again as the 1968 graduating class of 292 seniors prepared themselves for the busy commencement week that lay ahead. The b accalaureate address on June 2. in Boucher Gymna- sium, was delivered by Reverend Alston of the First Christian Church. On June 6 the class of ' 68 marched down the aisles of Boucher Gym to the traditional “Pomp and Circumstance.” The Reverend Darrell Parker, minister of the First Presbyterian Church, gave the invocation. The superintendent of Valparaiso Com- munity Schools, Mr. G. Warren Phillips, in his " Charge to the Class, " stressed the importance of maturity in the fulfillment of a happy life. Becky Beldon and Sharon Koepke were co-valedictorians this year, and Jeff Bar- ber was salutatorian. Becky spoke of “Sickness in Our Society " ; Sharon concentrated on “Pessimism in Life”; and Jeff ' s topic was “Apathy and Indifference. " Before diplomas were presented, Principal King Telle received a standing ovation from the capacity audience in honor of his 22 years as principal of VHS. His impromptu fare- well talk was spiced with both humor and nostalgia. Following the distribution of diplomas, tassels were turned and the graduates marched from the gym with confidence. Tom Steindler. Alice Steinbach and Cathie Standiford repeat the petite ritual of turning their tassels to the right side to signify that they are " grads. " As the climax of twelve long years draws near, students anxiously await distribution of diplomas. Speaking at graduation were Sharon Koepke and Becky Beldon. co-valedictorians, and Jeff Barber, salutatorian.

The result — an honest effort to show that VHS embodies hundreds of unique individuals acting as one when unity is need- ed, but never losing their individuality in their togetherness. Becky, Karen, Julie, Hilary, Maureen, Marsha, the senior and junior staffs nurtured the idea to prove that the essence of VHS is " Unity in Diversity.” Each contributing her own thoughts and feelings; each demonstrating her own individuality. But where was the actual source of our unity? We found strength under the guidance, leadership, and kindness of our own Mr. Brown. From him came the invigoration which led us into the realm of unity which produced the ' 68 Valenian. This yearbook is all that remains of our efforts. Now, the “Unity in Diversity” of this past year is yours to read, to look at, and to cherish. For me remain the memories of my year as editor-in-chief to which I am indebted to my staff and to Mr. Brown.
