Campbell Street Valparaiso, Indiana 46383 Eight a.m. The last buses deposit students at the doors of VHS, while those who drive to school are frantically searching for a parking space. For 6 hours, one sits through lectures, assimilation games, and an occasional quiz, with the diversion of a 30-minute lunch break scheduled somewhere in between. Two-thirty p.m. The afternoon announcements signal the end of the day. and 1,400 students make a mad dash for their buses, cars, and freedom. Is that really all there is to life at Valparaiso High School? We invite you to " Take a Closer Look.” ■ ' l Ta ke a Closer Look.. Opening SIINNERTINESUMI Whose year ends in June??? “What did I do this summer? Not much — it was a real bore.” When asked about their vacations, many VHS students responded in a similar fashion. But this somewhat apathetic attitude only piqued our curiosity. Were the days between June 8 and August 29 really as dull as some students claimed? We looked back to the summer of ' 77 and found they didn’t have to be. Many discovered the most effective way to break the bonds of heat-induced lethargy was to pile into the car and head for the nearby city of Chicago. If you didn ' t mind losing a little sleep, or standing for hours in the long lines which surrounded the Field Museum, you may have been lucky enough to purchase a ticket to the King Tut Exhibit. Setting an attendance record for a single museum attraction, 1.3 million visitors clamored for a glimpse of the 55 artifacts buried with the boy king. If viewing the legacy of a 3,000 year-old mummy left you cold, you may have been more interested in the events taking place across the street. Held at Soldier Field, the Super Bowl of Rock concerts were a big attraction. In the course of the summer, nearly 300,000 fans filled the stadium to watch the antics of Emerson Lake and Palmer, Pink Floyd, Ted Nugent, Peter Frampton, and other big name rock groups. You didn’t have to leave Indiana to have fun, however, and for most students at VHS. the summer scene would simply not be complete without the Dunes. Swimming, sunning, and trying one ' s hand at Frisbee along the shores of Lake Michigan provided a sure way to beat the heat. Of course, the summer of ' 77 also included the simple things, like walking the dog, reading a book, or just taking it easy. And after all, isn’t that what most students feel summer is all about? 2 — Opening 1ERTIMESUMMERT 4 Opening — 3 NIGHTLIFEIVIICHTL Late to bed - late to rise Teenagers everywhere anxiously await the arrival of Friday and Saturday nights. For many students, this is the only time they are free to leave the house for a few hours to do as they please. Monday through Thursday students groan that the weekend will probably never come, and on the last day of the week, the halls of VHS echo with the cry, “Thank God it’s Friday! " So the weekend arrives at last, and the only problem is getting the gang to agree on a plan of action. There’s a game at the high school, and since Lori’s boyfriend is playing you decide to go. Afterwards there ' s a sockhop, but it ends at 11:00, and you still have an hour or two before curfew. Everyone piles into the car, and you head for Burger King. If anything’s happening around town, this is the place to find out about it. Soon the parking lot fills up, and it appears that half of VHS has turned out en masse. While toying with your Coke, you overhear plans for a party at Smith’s tomorrow night, and leave feeling confident that Saturday will be another good evening. You cruise Lincolnway once or twice, and since nothing much is happening, determine it wouldn’t hurt to make Mom happy and get in early for a change. Saturday night rolls around, and once again the kids are cruisin’. With a car-load of friends, you drive up Lincolnway, around the B.K. parking lot, (just to check it out,) and then on to Calumet Street’s " Restaurant Row.” You pass Wendy’s, Arthur Treacher’s, Pizza Hut, and Perkins, and probably make a pitstop somewhere along the way. Smith’s party shouldn’t be in full swing for quite some time, so you consider dropping in at the Premier to grab a Buttercup and catch a movie. But the rest of the crowd has already seen the picture, and they vote to drive on to Michigan City, where there’s a wider variety of shows. Once you’ve made it to the " City” however, the kids decide they don’t want to see a movie after all, and since Smith’s will probably be a bore, why not continue on to the scenic state of Michigan? And so the evening comes to an end. Upon arriving home, you immediately get ready for bed. Before you crash for the night, you smile in the darkness. Next weekend is only 6 days away . . .

He informed you that your name was selected to give a guided tour of Valparaiso to visiting congressmen, and it is your duty as a citizen to comply. He explained that the tour should center on those aspects of the community which reflect change. Your initial reaction is panic! What is there in Valpo that ' s new and exciting? There is only one week for preparation, so you decide to keep a special notebook to record new things as you notice them. During sixth hour the next day, you hear an announcement concerning this Friday ' s football game. Your thoughts drift to last week’s victory over LaPorte. Coach Hoffman must be really proud. Hey — Coach Hoffman! After 14 years of coaching the Varsity football team, Mr. Tom Stokes resigned, and Mr. Mark Hoffman had been named his successor. That’s certainly a change! After school you have some errands to run. You make a quick stop at K-Mart and notice the construction crews working on the new mall next door. They’ve certainly made a lot of progress since the last time you were here. Again, you reach for your notebook. From K-Mart you drive downtown. As you travel up Lincolnway you glance at the statue on the courthouse lawn. The statue was designed by a V.U. student, and local businessmen sponsored its construction. As you circle the courthouse square in search of a parking space, you pass several shiny, silver squad cars. This year Police Chief Marvin Reed gave his O K. on the purchase of 20 new police cars. As you pull into a space you feel elated at having added two more items to your list. This project has really opened your eyes. You wonder what the future has in store for Valparaiso, and can’t help thinking how great it would be if everyone would take a closer look at the growth and development around them. Opening — 7 Ray-tc-Ray Rcubletake Student’ is spelled a-c-t-i-v-e According to Webster, a student (stood’ nt) is “One who studies or investigates.” This definition conjures up on image of the horn-rimmed pupil bent intently over his desk, burning the midnight oil in an unending quest for knowledge. Like most stereotypes, however, this description leaves little room for interpretation. As a typical student, you probably recognize the importance of an education. After all, you come to school to learn. But as the old saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack Student dull, dull, dull. Each day you make several pit stops at the locker. The assorted magazine clippings and hastily scrawled notes on the bulletin board inside remind you that there is life outside the classroom. The lunch break provides another much-appreciated respite from the classroom routine. After eating, there is usually enough time for you to amble off to the Student Lounge or Learning Center. After school you head for tennis practice or a Foreign Exchange Club meeting. You’ve discovered that being involved makes school more fun. When you’re with your friends you may complain loudly about your boring first hour teacher or ungodly amounts of homework. That ' s normal. It’s even expected. But you can be you’re not alone if deep down you feel life at VHS isn ' t really all that bad .... Student Life — 9 10 — Homecoming Mood is stormy, but sweet Looks like we ' re in for a blustery weekend, folks. There’s a ninety percent chance of rain, and out in the boonies of Valparaiso, you can bet on some wet weather. With a look at the charts, I can assure you it’s going to be a cold, stormy, evening — definitely not a night to go out. But go out they did! In spite of the driving rain, many fans sacrificed a fun-filled evening with Donny and Marie in order to attend a muddy Homecoming game on October 7. Spectators sought the shelter of umbrellas and slickers as they enthusiastically cheered the Vikes on to a 28-0 victory over LaPorte. Halftime festivities were highlighted by the crowning of queen Marissa Ellis. Couples substituted suits and formals for raincoats and galoshes as they prepared for Pep Club ' s annual Homecoming Dance the following night. Hard-working club members were able to transform the South Balcony into Candyland. The scene came complete with The Good Ship Lollipop, Hershey’s Kisses, and candy canes. From 8:00 to 11:00 the group Bushwack supplied danceable music for Homecoming sweethearts. According to tradition, many couples topped off the evening by dining out at various area restaurants, such as The Spa, Red Lantern, Golden Nuggett, and others. 1. Homecoming Queen Marissa Ellis receives a warm reception from Kim Ward as Mrs. Grcich and escort Joe Grcich look on. 2. Although the night is cold and wet, these Valparaiso fans are willing to weather the storm in anticipation of a Viking victory. 3. Renato Pangan and Pat Dziadosz boogie to the sounds of Bushwack.

Since school is out of the question for Jews in hiding, Mr. Frank tutors Peter (John Eicher.) 5. After a coughing spell, Margot (Anne Hoehner) settles down for a nap. 6. Still wearing her Star of David, Anne talks with Peter for the first time. Cast sets scene for Anne Frank For the first time in five years, director Alice Noble elected to perform a serious drama at VHS because she felt that more students possessed greater acting ability than usual. The Drama Club presented “The Diary of Anne Frank” on November 18 and 19 after weeks of rehearsal. The cast underwent intensive preparations in order to present the story of a Jewish family in hiding during WW II. They viewed slides of concentration camps, movies, and talked to a rabbi to better understand the fear and anxiety of the Frank fa mily. Members of the cast practiced sensitivity exercizes, such as imagining the loss of one ' s parents. The purpose of this was to create a sense of family togetherness among cast members. The added preparations resulted in excellent character development and unity. " I was very pleased with their performance, " Mrs. Alice Noble remarked. Convos relieve The clock ticks off the minutes as you look out of the window and contemplate the shape of your fingernails, or make bizarre doodles on the pages of your spiral notebook. You glance across the classroom and notice that the rest of your fifth hour class appears to be no more attentive than you are. Suddenly, you look up and discover that it ' s 1:30.

Still exhuberant about Valpo ' s hard-won victory over Hammond High, senior Carol Hofferth ' gets down ' to Eliza Jumal. 16 — Discos Sockhops Disco down and check out the show John Travolta, with his lithe and limber physique, popularized “Saturday Night Fever,” the story of a disco dancer. VHS’ South Balcony may not resemble a New York City discotheque, and the dancers probably aren ' t good enough to audition for the “Radio City Rockettes,” but then, a Friday night sockhop was never meant to be a professional production. Post-game sockhops have become a painless, popular way to relieve the “nothing-to-do " blues. Students fill the dance floor week after week to celebrate victories or make defeats a little easier to bear. Other factors that contribute to the popularity of the club-sponsored events are that they are inexpensive and don ' t require a full tank of gas. Student Council put out a " patent” on the disco. These dances come complete with disc jockies and light shows. Other clubs pulled in funds with the use of the ever-popular live band. Although it can be fun to get dressed up in long gowns and fancy suits for formal dances, the “come as you are” policy of the after-game discos and sockhops has firmly established them as a great form of casual entertainment. 4. To beat the heat of disco dancing, Pam Tucker and Ty Welch cool off at the drinking fountain. 5. VHS’ Tony Manero, Jeff Maciejewski and Kim Koch display their disco dancing expertise. Dlscos Sockhops — 17 18 1. Cleaning up over $250,000 worth of damage meant hours of extra work for the janitorial staff. 2. An unknown graffitist sums up his opinion of the aftermath. 3.

Protected by a leather-bound grade book, Mrs. Katherine Clark’s literature text is ironically open to Jack London ' s " To Build a Fire. " 5. Amid the smoldering debris, a local fireman searches for evidence of arson. 6. Firefighters braved fierce heat and smoke in a desperate attempt to keep flames from spreading. - Feature Soot, smoke, sabotage shocks VHS When we entered the building that Monday, we shook our heads and stared in disbelief. Thick, oily soot was everywhere. The hallways of VHS were darkly oppressive, and the stench of smoke was almost overpowering. We ' d all heard about the fire, which was set by an unknown arsonist on Friday, January 6. We knew it had gutted four English classrooms, but few of us were prepared for the extensive damage, estimated at over $250,000, that was evident throughout the school. Clad in old clothing at the request of Principal Garth Johnson, we hesitantly opened our lockers. Those of us who were lucky found soot- covered texts and folders. Those who were not so fortunate discovered books burned beyond recognition, scorched sweaters, and melted calculators. “Why would anyone do such a thing?” we wondered. “We had such a nice school!” After a few days, we became accustomed to seeing workmen in every hallway. We grew used to walking around scaffolds and stacks of new ceiling tiles. We even learned to ignore the smell of smoke. There are times when we can almost forget the destruction which took place that January evening, but in the North hallway a plywood barricade proclaiming, “KEEP OUT! " forces us to remember. Feature — 19 Has Student Council got a great offer for you! Are midwinter blizzards getting you down? Are you sick of frostbitten noses, and tired of trudging through five foot snow drifts?

It will be sonar frequented by the truly diggable and current superstar Elvis the Pelvis, original artists stimulating the 82-stringed keyboard instrument, and also some of our own kind.

Magic ' makes chivalry costly Once upon a time, gallant knights slayed fierce, fire-breathing dra- gons in order to rescue beautiful damsels in distress. This practice went out of style for many years un- til May 12, 1978, when it was res- surected by the VHS Junior Class. Once again, junior and senior boys battled the odds on their way to the 1978 prom. In addition to the prob- lem of finding a date, the average promgoer discovered that the cost of a tux, tickets, and flowers added up to a lofty sum of about $100. Not wanting to be a cheap- skate, he scraped up the money, even though it meant forestalling payments on his new car. (continued) 1.

Awaiting them was a medieval cas- tle complete with a garden, a draw- bridge, and stained glass windows. “Foxfire” entertained dancers from 8:30 to 11:30, when couples proceed- ed to post-prom at the V.U. Union, which was transformed into a " Gar- den Party” by junior parents. Students spent time dancing to " Powerhouse, " eating dinner, or visiting any of the many other attractions available. As the all-night affair ended at 5:30 a.m., promgoers rushed home to get some sleep before dashing off to ball games, amusement parks, and t) other activities for the remainder of the rainy Saturday. 1. Lining up for the break, Nancy Rooney prepares to challenge her date in a game of pool at Post-Prom. 2.

A long, flouncy dress may be appropriate for dancing, bu Carol Joseph finds that non- regulation attire does have an affect on her bowling technique. 26 — Post Prom It’s all over! Tonight there are no green and white jerseys out on the football field. Instead, 432 folding chairs await the graduating class of 1978. The crowd has even given up popcorn in honor of the occasion. Senior class officers opted to schedule ceremonies on the Viking field as opposed to holding them in the gym. The atmosphere was less stifling, more relaxed. Although baccalaureate and graduation may seem trite or sentimental, they are more than meaningless rituals. Exams may be our days before, but the reality of “getting out” doesn’t hit you until you’re walking up the aisle on May 31 to receive your diploma. It’s then that you ask yourself, “Have I made any progress since I came here as a confused sophomore three long years ago?” You hear Mr. Dick read off names over the loud speaker. Some you’ve never heard before, and some belong to people who ' ve become your best friends. Whispered conversations include, “Remember when we won State?” and “I wonder what we ' ll be doing ten years from now?” But you can’t help grinning as you think, " What a relief — I’m finally a high school grad!” 1. Family and friends gathered In the bleachers for the outdoor ceremonies, the Class of ' 78 files Into the VHS stadium. 2.

I don’t know if I can take one more minute of basketball!” “I know what you mean. Thirty hours is a long time to be playing.” “I can ' t believe that Mr. Collins can shoot like that. He’s not bad!” “Well, I ' d like to talk all night, but I ' ve got to get into this sleeping bag if I ' m gonna make it through tomorrow.” " Yeah, okay. First I ' m gonna grab a quick snack, then I ' ll probably just collapse.” Playing basketball for thirty straight hours may not be your idea of the perfect way to spend a weekend, but that’s just what most Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) did on April 28 and 29.

While away, you would have experienced the life and culture of the country where you stayed. In addition to sending people to Europe for the summer, FEC planned a number of excursions to Chicago. Club members visited Lincoln Park Zoo, went Christmas shopping, saw “Hello Dolly,” toured Japanese Town, and spent a day at “Great America. " Members also sampled oriental cuisine at a local Chinese Restaurant, organized the Foreign Feast and International Weekend. According to the club’s sponsor, Mr. Wesley Maiers, “Enrollment in Foreign Exchange Club is exceptionally high because the club is very active. There’s also the attraction of spending the summer overseas. " 1.

If FLC doesn’t hold the Foreign Feast, and VTO doesn ' t sponsor the King of Hearts Dance, exactly what do they do? Well, Foreign Language Club allowed students to learn more about foreign languages. Members traveled to Chicago to see “Man of LaMancha,” and visited the “Christmas Around the World” program at the Museum of Science and Industry. Spirit and words of encouragement provided tired swimmers with the incentive to go all-out at their meets. After the last event of the season had been timed and entered in the record book, members of VTO and the boy ' s swim team had a chance to relax and get to know each other at an end-of-the-season party.

The hall contest was a big success, and I’m sure Pep Week and all the ideas we’ve planned will be too!” The sponsor approached the house somewhat cautiously, then exploded with approval. “Ladies, this is just great! I mean fantastic! You girls are doing one heck of a job. I think we ' re going to make it!” Even after the excitement of “Candyland” was over, spirt never lagged, and the girls cheerfully continued to put in long hours of weekly baking, sign painting, and locker decorating. Other annual activities sponsored by the club included the annual car wash, sockhop, and senior parents’ night. 1.

Pep Club — 37 When God was creating the earth, he decided it would be wise to create a wide variety of people. Upon some individuals he bestowed beauty, upon others, brains, and upon still others, athletic prowess. Now you may never win a Farrah Fawcett-Look-Alike Contest, and when it comes to brains, you resemble Inspector Clouseau of Pink Panther fame, far more closely than Albert Einstein. There is not much you can do to change your looks or your I.Q., but if varsity athletics aren ' t your style, you don ' t have to spend the rest of your life on the sidelines. The Intramural program at VHS is one of the most extensive in the state. With a total of 11 year round activities, the program provides every student with the opportunity to participate in his favorite competitive sport. Under the supervision of faculty members, students participated in football, softball, basketball, volleyball, and water polo at the high school. Skiing, which took place at the Pines, received such an overwhelming response last year, that only beginners were allowed to enroll in this year’s program. With the completion of the indoor facility at Thomas Jefferson, the tennis buffs were able to move indoors. The tennis program was scheduled to end in late February, but at the request of sponsor Mrs. Judy Lebryk, the tennis participants were able to play until June. 1.

Anyone caught talking out of turn will be thrown out by the sergeant-at-arms,” yells the president of the Student Council as she hits her gavel on the desk. Hold it! “She?” You bet! Yanna latridis is the second female in the past decade to preside over council activities. Yanna, along with other council members, decided on “Colorado Christmas” as the theme for the annual Christmas Dance. Due to inclement weather the festivities were postponed for one week, but in spite of this inconvenience, the dance was a tremendous success. According to the chaperones, “Colorado Christmas” was “great,” “fantastic,” and “one of the best dances ever.” One of the most controversial matters brought up in Student Faculty Senate this year concerned the current method of figuring grade point averages. Students felt their band and choir grades should be included in their averages, but teachers felt this would be fair only if music students agreed to take a written test each semester. 1.

Do you feel that you want to contribute something to civilization? Do you just want to do something nice for someone else? If these questions faced you at one time or another, then YARC or V-teens should have been your answer. These clubs allow their members to perform services for people in the community. Youth Association for Retarded Children (YARC) provides members with a chance to socialize and have a good time. By holding bake sales and a pumpkin raffle, YARC sponsored a Christmas dance, Halloween party, and a spring picnic for the adults at Opportunity Enterprises. Members also organized the Winter Special Olympics, and a get-together the weekend of " April Antics.” With all V-Teens pitching in, the King of Hearts dance, “Las Vegas Weekend,” was a big success. The money raised from the dance was contributed to the Heart Fund. By sponsoring Apple Day and a fall sock-hop, club members were able to provide a needy family with a Thanksgiving feast. 42 — YARC V-teens 4 YARC — Front Row: Ms. Liz Brown, sponsor; Ruth Shewan.

Opening: As we fade in, Myrtle and Gertrude are chatting over cups of coffee. Gertrude: Myrtle, did you see the VHS Drama Department’s production of " The Diary of Anne Frank?” Myrtle: Why, yes! My Janey was a member of the cast. Gertrude: She was? You should be proud of her! I think all the kids did a great job on the entire play. The settings, costumes, and characters were all so realistic. (Gertrude finishes her cup of coffee.) Myrtle: I agree, but you’ve got to give some of the credit to Mrs. Alice Noble. She put so much time and effort into the production. Gertrude: I ' ll say! She worked just as hard, if not harder than any cast member. Myrtle: You know, Janey said it took a whole week for Mrs. Noble to choose the cast because everyone who tried out was so good. Gertrude: Really? (surprised). Please pass the coffee. Myrtle: (passing the coffee) I’ve wondered why the drama club chose " Anne Frank.” Gertrude: Well I heard Mrs. Noble wanted to attempt something different — something that the kids could really get into . . . (Fade out) Members of drama club know how important it is to develop their character. As the cast of “Anne Frank” had to express particular inhibitions and fears, Mrs. Noble decided special character preparation was needed. She ordered special films and articles for the actors to go over. This enabled them to understand what it must have been like in German concentration camps during W.W. II. Sensitivity exercises before each rehearsal allowed the cast to get into character and " live” the part of the person they were portraying. Backing every VHS production is the Sound and Light Crew sponsored by Mr. Kenning. Members combined talent and know how to create the many lighting and sound effects seen on the stage. Sometimes an outside group will pay the crew for their work, and the money is saved for an end-of-the- year party. Drama Club Sound Light Crew — 45 tills Wanted: Person with good office habits, initiative, congenial personality, determination, and the ability to get along with others. If the service clubs decided to run this ad in the beginning of the year, would you have met the requirements? If so, you might now be a member of Office Education Association (OEA), Future Educators in Action (FEA), or Quest. If you decided to join OEA, you and 36 other members would have formed social, civic, and public relations committees in order to plan events for the year. OEA sponsored the V.U. Homecoming Bakesale, and proceeds from this project were used to prepare a Christmas basket for the needy. Members with polished office skills, took part in local, state, or national competition, according to the degree of their abilities. Both winners and losers alike enjoyed the well-deserved spring trip. If you ' ve expressed an interest in teaching, counselors may have urged you to join FEA. In order to become aquainted with various classroom situations, members hosted guest speakers and took field trips to other Valparaiso schools. This year FEA introduced a new program called ‘‘peer counseling.” This innovative project allows members to help other students with scheduling and personal problems. If you were not interested in developing office skills, or in becoming a teacher, yet still wanted to belong to a service club, Quest may have been the answer. If you were willing to give up a study hall, you would have worked in the main office, library, or bookstore. Those members who were specifically assigned to a faculty member served as a teacher’s aid performing various errands. 46 — Quest OEA FEA 1 FEA — Front Row: Bretta Wagner, vice pr es.; Terri Barnhart, pres.; Carol Mitchell, sec Second Row: Kim Simon, Kim Moser, Martha Stoner.

As Superman, Wonderwoman, and other famous heroes are kept busy fighting crime, members of vocational and distributive education programs are kept busy fighting apathy. While Superman develops his muscles and Wonderwoman develops other things, VICA and DECA participants are developing various skills and abilities. In VICA, leadership abilities are formed through participation in a wide variety of activities. The club annually sponsors a cook-out and an after-game dance. To maintain the high standards required by the club, members are expected to organize all activities through a democratic process. This controlled organization prepares them for regional, state, and national Skills Olympics Contests. Without her all powerful belt and mighty rope, Wonderwoman is virtually helpless. VICA would be equally ineffective, if not for the ever- important chapter meetings. It is during these meetings that vocational, educational, civic, and social activities are planned. During the Career Development Conference, the entire class participated in the district competition. Placing members continued on to state and national competition. In addition to aiding students in the area of career development, DECA acts as the goodwill ambassador of VHS. The club organized a Halloween party for hospitalized children, and assembled a Christmas basket for a needy family. Other activities included dances, bakesales, and an employer-employee banquet. VICA and DECA members may not be as fast as a speeding bullet, or have a fantastic feminine physique, but the two organizations do contain students that are growing into concerned, responsible citizens.

Only students with a minimum 3.0 grade point grade average are considered for membership. Faculty members rate these students on a scale of 1-8 in the areas of scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Names of students having a total of thirty-two points or more are compiled on a list. This list is read at a faculty meeting where the teachers agree upon the deserving candidates. NHS annually sponsors a flower sale for Valentine’s Day. This year students and faculty purchased an overwhelming total of 2910 carnations. Also, NHS awarded scholarships to qualifying seniors. Another exclusive club is Quill and Scroll. Members of the club are accomplished journalists and are inducted at the Spring Awards Banquet. Members are also eligible for the Workshop Scholarship Fund, which is used for enrolling journalists in summer programs at universities. Thespians is a club consisting of students with at least 200 hours of theatre work. Thespians make yearly trips to Chicago with Drama Club, and also participate in most dramatic productions at VHS. Honoraries — 53 If ALL THE WORLDS R 5TRGI WHRT ROLE HAVE YOU BEEN 54 — English t the peak of the potato blight, hundreds of Irish streamed across the Atlantic to America, the land of opportunity. Another group, how- ever, didn ' t come across as willing- ly as the Irish. Instead, they were chained into the stinking holds of cargo ships and forced into slavery. Although America has been called “the melting pot,” the blacks didn ' t seem to melt as quickly nor as easily as other ethnic groups. In the past 15 years, blacks have been standing up to proclaim their heritage. Black writers have helped this movement. In their works, they tell of the blacks’ way of life, and hopes for equality. In keeping with the black aware- ness trend, the VHS English Depart- ment offered a course in black lit- erature two years ago, but due to lack of interest in the class, it was withdrawn from the curriculum. The publication of Roots, its subsequent success at book stores, and its record-breaking television audiences in the living rooms of America revived interest in the course. This year, one black literature class is scheduled, but next year there could be more. Roots, to the chagrin of some students, isn’t covered in the course, because there are other black writers who have made signi- ficant contributions toward the un- derstanding of black culture. Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, and Richard Wright are just a few of the authors studied in Black Literature. Black and white authors often share similar themes. They write about human experiences and their interpretations, or struggles to interpret these experiences. However, due to their different lifestyles, black writers have dif- ferent interpretations of their ex- periences than their white counter- parts. 1.

Not a word passed between the lips as the figures “spoke” to each other. The above may sound like a scene from “Close Encounters of the Third Kind, " but in actuality the figures were students of the new Advanced class. The first nine weeks of study concerns dramatic acting and the second delves into comedy. Since the students have previously been introduced to acting in Dramatic Arts, Advanced Acting allows them to utilize their dramatic skills. Rather than textbooks for informa- tion, the students experience acting first hand. Acting class performing mime. The only prerequisity for Advan- ced Acting is that the student has already taken Dramatic Arts. An interest in theatre as a career is also helpfql, since the course stresses acting as a career. For many students, the talents of Marcel Marceau have sparked interest in the art of mime. The recent suc- cess of Robert Shields and Lorene Yarnell in their TV show based on mime has brought mime into the living- rooms of America. In addition to mime, movement and acting techniques are taught in the After nine weeks of introduction into acting techniques, the class of fourteen members performed at an evening gathering of parents and friends on March 15. The performances consisted of three one acts — one on absurd drama, another on impromptu, and the last on MacBeth excerpts.

He sighed realizing that there was already something for everybody. There was Family Management for future husbands and wives, and Creative Writing for poets and scribes. In a dilemma as to what he could do, he turned to his favorite soothsayer and all-around handyman, Zoron. Zoron was one of those elves who sat around and spoke only when spoken to. Yet, when the Almighty Creator needed advice, Zoron ' s was always available. The Almighty asked Zoron why he always sat in the corner and read books. Zoron replied that he was on a self-improvement kick and was doing the project on his own. The Almighty Creator explained that he was having trouble adding a course to the curriculum. He wanted it to be different, yet instructional. Zoron thought that since VHS already had almost everything, a self- improvement course should be offered. He thought that students were becoming too dependent upon teachers for their knowledge, and were not doing enough research on their own. The Creator brainstormed and hit upon the idea of an Independent Study course for seniors only. Having no regularly scheduled class period, a student would be sponsored by a faculty member and would do research during a specially- designated hour during the day. Students would be free to select their own area of study as long as the project is approved by the Independent Study (IPS) faculty committee. At the end of the semester, the student would present his project both orally and in a written paper to the IPS faculty committee. The Creator looked at Zoron who had resumed reading a book by Dante. The little elf had done it again. 1. Graphing often causes confusion for Algebra students as Vicky Gould discovers while graphing an absolute value function at the board. 2.

A similar situation happens every year at VHS when students continuing their education discover that the college of their choice usually requires a minor in science. Consequently, they begin desperately searching their curriculum handbooks for a course to fulfill that requirement. After years of making the electrical breakdown of the atom required information, the VHS Science Department brainstormed and hit upon the idea of a general chemistry course. Designed for those students whose interest in science is low, most students are taking the class only to satisfy a college requirement. Now all students can learn the basic properties of chemistry without taxing their brains to the point of scientific overload. In keeping with its course outline of less complex teaching of chemistry, General Chemistry’s class work is divided equally between lab work and lectures, rather than the 65-35 class division of regular chemistry. The explanation of general chemical terms, a major area covered in the course, provides a good general background for those students not continuing in the scientific field. Yet for those students who decide to take more courses in the science department, General Chemistry is still a good introductory course for science majors. Science A 1.

Because of the suspicion existing between the governmental branches at that time, the episode was chris- tened the Saturday Night Massacre. This fall students observed new teachers in both psychology and sociology classes. Unaware of the reasons behind these changes, some students wondered if the administr- ation had pulled a ‘‘Saturday Night Massacre” of its own. In actuality, the changes were brought about by the teachers them- selves. Miss Donna Dike replaced Mr. Steve Morgan as a sociology teacher, because he wanted to work full-time toward his Master ' s Degree. Mrs. Cathy Grove felt it was time for a change, and Mrs. Cheryl Hardy took her place as a psychology teacher. Sociology is a universally stu- died subject. Miss Dike changed the course outline by eliminating the usual semester-end project that inevitably followed the course. In- stead, she opted for smaller pro- jects throughout the course of study. A project on music in society was also planned for the whole class. The format is flexible in order to meet the needs of students. In psychology, Mrs. Hardy devised a new method of demonstrating the effects of political propoganda on the public. Classes held a mock convention complete with party hats, stickers, campaign buttons and po- sters. Each " candidate” spoke to the “delegates” telling them his policy and course of action if elected to office. Another class project was a student poll depict- ing various personality stereotypes.

Vet the annual Green and White showdown at VHS managed to provide some excitement as seniors experienced the thrill of running for city government office of Valparaiso. With the elected offices of Mayor, City Council members, Fire Chief and Police Chief up for grabs and the appointed seats such as Park Director hanging in the balance, the mock elections provided a chance for seniors to takepart in city government and utilize their studies in that area. The Green and White parties were chosen by dividing the government classes according to teachers. The parties then chose their candidates at an all-senior convocation. Immediately afterward, posters cropped up in the halls, and announcements flooded the p.a. system as the candidates struggled to win votes. After a week of campaigning, the parties had to await the outcome as the seniors voted throughout the hours of March 7. Green Party candidate John Eicher was the victor in the mayoral race and along with the other new officeholders, Eicher ran the city for a day. The participants tried to institute new ideas for city improvement, such as a skateboarding park for the city, but at times tried to use their offices to seek fringe benefits. The Mayor tried to get the City Council to appropriate funds so that he could buy a new Corvette. After their day as heads of Valparaiso, the students officials attended a luncheon given them by their respective counterparts in the actual city government. History — 65 1.

This copy, although it hasn’t actually been created yet, was baptized a clone. Perhaps other schools in Indiana wonder if it’s possible to produce a clone from an organization such as a band. Maybe they have set their sights on VHS as the original speciman for their own band clone. Last year, the VHS bands demonstrated their skill by capturing a total 558 gold medals at the District I NISBOVA Contest. This year, however, they exceeded everyone’s expectations by winning a record-breaking 595 gold medals. Sixteen members of the band also qualified for the Indiana Bandmaster’s All-State High School Band. In addition, two members, Janice Brooks and Penny Tirschman were named (continued) Band — 67 1.

The sixteen VHS Band members were chosen for the Allstate Band on the basis of sight reading and individual performances. Along with other Indiana students who qualified, they traveled to Butler University’s Clowes Hall in Indianapolis for a group performance on March 12. Besides the daily class period for all band members, students are required to practice at home. Some, however, get additional practice by auditioning for the two extra- curricular bands at school, the Jazz and Pep bands. The pep band plays at all home basketball games, and the Jazz band performs concerts throughout the years for students and community organizations. It also performs at various jazz festivals in the area, such as the Notre Dame University Jazz Festival and the Elmhurst (Fort Wayne) Jazz Festival. The Jazz band also gives an annual concert at VHS. E ach year as the car racing circuit opens, virtually every professional driver looks forward to the creme de la creme of the races, the Indianapolis 500. Many rookies are turned away in their first attempt at qualification because they don’t have enough experience. And all drivers realize that experience develops respect for the treacherous track at Indy. Just as experience is vital to racers, practice makes perfect in the VHS Choral Department. When viewing the choirs on stage, it is wise to remember that they have practiced years to achieve the quality of their performance. In the Valparaiso Community Schools, all elementary students learn to sing simple songs in weekly music classes. At the end of the year, they participate in a musical to show their parents what they have accomplished. By junior high, (continued) Band Choir — 69 choir is an elective and the science of singing is studied. The students are grouped according to their individual pitch. At the senior high level, choir becomes a daily course, and instead of one choir, there are the A and B choirs, the Carousels, Girl’s Glee Club, and the Carolers as well. The VHS choirs also do more performing. There are fall concerts, Christmas concerts, and the spring festivals of song. Beside per- formances in the community, the choirs have also performed at the Six Flags Amusement Park in St. Louis. 1.

I hate February.” “Why is that?” “Because I have to make out my schedule for next year. How am I supposed to think about next year’s courses, and concentrate on this year’s classes at the same time?” “I suppose that can be a problem.” “You’d better believe it! Hey, wait a minute. Who in the heck am I talking to?” “I’m your conscience. You know, that thing you’ve been trying to wash away with Friday night suds.” “Oh, yeah . . . Well, don’t give me a lecture. I need help. I want to take Art, but I don’t know if I should.” “It just so happens I’m an expert when it comes to art. Even if you don’t have any artistic talent you can still enjoy the class. You’ll learn to appreciate the beauty around you, and discover that you don ' t have to be a weirdo like Van Gogh to create art objects. Understand, if you will, that art is different to everyone. What you consider to be art, someone else might think as junk. And you should always remember that art ...” “Hold it! You ' re starting to lec- ture! Just tell me more about the classes.” " Well, Art is also a practical course. For instance, if you choose to take Jewelry, you could make a friendship ring for one of your friends. You ' d save yourself ten bucks, since that’s what it would cost in the stores. Or you could get on your parents good side by present- ing them with an ashtray you made in Ceramics. And think of the things you could make for yourself.” “Hey, I think I ' ll take Ceramics. Now can you help me choose my other courses?” 72 — An 1.

Today the teachers were supposed to be hav- ing a quiet reunion tea, but in- stead they ' re arguing over new courses for the department. " " I think we need a course on dat- ing. These kids of the modern gen- eration are too " loose” in their dating habits. Girls should learn that in orde r to maintain a respect- able reputation, they need to take along a chaperone. Pass the prune cookies, dear. " “Oh, come on! We don’t need a dating class. As Sigmund Freud used to say, " To teach is own.” Now he was a swinger!!” " I ' ve got it! How about having a Planned Parenthood course that would teach kids how to deal with raising a family? You know, the kids of today are the parents of tomorrow, and they can learn from our mistakes. May I please have the cream? " " Certainly! After all, raising a child is hard work, what with all the phases they go through. You know, the 1-3 stage, 3-6 period. 6-12 years, and so on. These are the most important years of a child’s life. This is when he develops physically, mentally, and socially! During these crucial years children develop impressions which influenc e them for a lifetime. Freud also feels parents must be informed if they hope to understand their child’s needs.” " Exactly! And it can help other students who plan to go into fields such as teaching or nursing. To observe how these professions deal with children, the class could visit area day care centers and elementary schools to observe their methods of interacting with children.” " You’ve really got something there, but what are we going to call it?” " Well we can’t call it Planned Parenthood; we’d get sued for plagia- rism. How does Child Development sound?” A grand idea. A course on deve- loping children called Child Deve- lopment. How clever!” Home Ec. — 75 The business world has come a long way since the Dutch bought Manhattan Island from the Indians for $24 worth of trinkets. (Of course, the Indians stated 300 years later that they wouldn’t give 20 bucks to buy it back, but that’s beside the point.) What’s stressed here is that business is no longer as simple as it used to be. Data processing has replaced the old bookkeeper, and machines now pour coffee for corporate executives. Distributive Education at VHS has also changed. When it was started several years ago, its only prerequisite was marketing. Now a new course, Distributive Education Orientation, has been added to let students know what they’re getting into when they choose to take D.E. Being successful in the business world takes more talent than being able to pour a cup of coffee or run out for the boss’s doughnuts. It also takes a lot more than punching the time card in and out each day. The successful businessperson must recognize the importance of consumer relations, merchandising, communications, promotion and employer-employee relationships. Once the student has taken Marketing and D.E. Orientation, he is ready to take Distributive Ed. In this class, each student works at a training station for a local business, and serves as a clerk, cashier, cook, or secretary. Through close contact with both the employer and the student, D.E. co-ordinator Mrs. Cheryl Leach determines the progress of each pupil. Part of the student’s grade is determined by a written report concerning several aspects of his business, such as sales, or employment procedures. 76 — Business 1.

LA shall hat ' s all fine and good,” said D ' Artagnan, " but what do you suggest?” “Well, you’ve always been keen on fencing ... " " But I’ve already fenced all the musketeers!!” “Then why not promote the sport?” Now D’Artagnan thought this was a fine idea. He decided the best way to begin this campaign would be to find someone on earth who could instruct fencing, and the best instructor would be a typical school teacher. He looked through all the schools in the directory, but did not find anything that appeared even vaguely encouraging until he happened upon Valparaiso High School. He discovered that one Mark Watts had learned fencing in graduate school. If only D’Artagnan could get him to pass his knowledge on to others! D’Artagnan decided to talk Mr. Watts into teaching fencing. Of course he would have to wear a disguise since he didn’t want to be recognized. At the school, D’Artagnan received another shock. This Mr. Watts had already started teaching fencing! The class was even dressed in proper fencing habit, complete with white jacket and face mask. The foils were being held correctly, too, with the students using their disengages and cutovers to better their attack. D ' Artagnan scouted around school un- til he found more information. It seems Mr. Watts, in an attempt to revise the school’s physical education curriculum, offered to teach fencing to students. The rest of the staff agreed the course would be inter- esting, as well as instructive, since it helped students learn poise, discipline, and self- control. However, the staff found out that its budget would not cover the cost of the new equipment. To get the needed funds, the staff took its proposal to the school board, which wholeheartedly approved the additional funds. D ' Artagnan left VHS feeling that maybe the twentieth century wasn’t so wacky after all. If they were still teaching fencing, there was still some hope left for the world. Physical Education — I hose skeptics who contend that students take tests only when forced to apparently weren’t at VHS on February 8. Between 7:00 and 7:30, 41 weary, sleepy-eyed German students stumbled into their rooms to take th American Association of Teachers of German Padizozischer Austauschdienst (AATG PAD) test. Although the name conjures up images of an unbearably long exam, this competitive test lasts only an hour. It consists of two parts — oral and written — and is offered at three levels of German: second, third, and fourth year. Sign up for the test occurs in November. The cost is $2, and although the AATG PAD is not mandatory for German students, everyone is urged to participate. The main attraction of the test, however, is not the idea of comparing one’s German proficiency with those of other American students, but the possibility of winning one of the study trips of Germany offered by the AATG PAD. To qualify for one of the foreign study trips, the student socre in the 90 and above percentile. If a student wins a trip to Germany, he will live with a German family and attend school at a “gymnasium” — the equivalent of an American high school. In order to give students a taste of German life, schoolwork is combined with visits to cultural centers and historical landmarks. The PAD which co-sponsors these trips with the AATG, is an educational exchange organization that aims to reveal the German culture to American students. 80 — 1.

No more pro- crastinating. I’m through with getting sick the hour before, siphon- ing out the gas tank, hiding the dis- tributor cap in the toilet tank, and giving the keys to the dog for a quick burial; I’m going to go down there to take that test! One kid at school told me not to forget which gear I’m in. He said he was parallel parking, and was just ready to pull out of the space, when he stepped on the gas. He wound up slamming into the ’77 Lincoln Conti- nental behind him. But I know I shouldn’t be worried. I took Driver ' s Ed, and Mr. Stokes told me all about the test. I thought those stupid chapters about insurance and stopping distances were a waste of time, but now that I know they’ll be on the written exam, I’m glad we studied them. And I don ' t have to worry too much about reading the Driver ' s manual, because we read it in class and discussed the more important sections. I ought to be ready for this thing. I just hope the instructor’s prepared for a wild ride. I think when I get my license I’ll save my money and get a Camaro, or maybe a Trans Am. I can just see me cruising down Lincolnway, through Burger King, and around the university campus to see if there are any hot parties on Friday night. If nothing’s going on in Valpo, I can always go downstate and visit the kids at DePauw or I.U. I can just see me going down 1-65, passing up all those dumb station wagons. Oh, I don ' t see why I can ' t have my license without taking this stupid old state test. After all, I did pass Driver’s Ed, but I suppose the law is the law . . . 82 — Health Driver’s Ed. 1.

W J Iright, Bub, put your tray up there so I can get rid of this slop!” " By God, Joe, this mess hall food gets worse every day.” “I know what you mean. I used to wonder how my dog could stand dogfood. Now I know — he was so darned hungry he couldn’t help himself!!” “I just wonder how the Army gets its cooks anyway. Most of the time I think it hires ’em right out of the Ken L Ration factory.” “Maybe someday the world will learn how awful it is to eat like this and teach how to make food service appeal- t » ing. “I think your idea’s already been stolen. There ' s a course at Valpa- raiso High School that ' s called Com- mercial Food Service. It teaches kids the ins and outs of the food industry.” “Oh no. It looks like we ' re having pork cutlets again. That makes the fifth time this week! Why don’t you tell me about that course — it gives my stomach hope for the future.” “Well, the kids go to class in the morning and learn about food prepar- ation and sanitation. During first semester, the students are sent out to work as waitresses, cooks, hos- tesses, and busboys. They work in each position for about four weeks, then move on to another. Second se- mester they have to work at least 15 hours a week at a restaurant or cafeteria. Their employers evaluate them three times every grading period and these evaluations are part of their grade.” “Maybe the Army ought to start a course like that. It would save a lot of G.l. stomachs. Have they got a course like that here yet?” “Not yet. The Army still has to investigate the worthiness of such an operation in this outfit!” 84 — Ind. Arti Coop Fans stand up, take notice “Are you going to the game?” In the past, this question conjured up one of two images. Depending on the season, you would envision 22 players tackling, punting, or passing on a brightly lit football field, or a packed gymnasium, echoing with the sounds of cheering fans and a dribbling basketball. Although interest in “The Big Two " is by no means slacking off, students are finally waking up to the fact that football and basketball are not the only sports offered at VHS. Lately, other teams have had such outstanding seasons that students couldn ' t help noticing. With each wrestling victory, more and more fans turned out to rock the V bleachers with cries of, “Pin ' em, pin ’em! " and, “C’mon, Harbold — you can do it! " For the first year Pep Club decorated tennis players’ lockers. " I couldn’t believe the support we got, " said Rich Eagen, junior. " The number of fans at Sectionals was unreal!

I guess I better get started. It ' s time to rise and shine again. I just wish I didn ' t have to wake up the world. But the problem is, I have no replacement. The moon takes the night shift, and he’s too tired to shine all day long. But instead of complaining, I suppose I should look at the bright side. Take, for example, the members of the VHS Cross Country team. I don’t have to kick them out of bed. Early each morning, they ' re out working on their endurance and speed. As if that isn’t enough, just before I turn in for the night, I see Coach Skip Collins encouraging them to run to the limits of their endurance. Even though I’m a long distance away from earth, I can see that this team has depth. I feel exhausted just watching them practice day in and day out. Although I feel guilty about making them sweat so much; it’s paid off. The Cross Country Vikings have won eight out of ten dual meets and placed third in the Sectional and Duneland Conference meets.

You know, it’s not easy being a back-court line. Everybody steps on you; balls careen off your back, and even tennis rackets come smashing down on your new white paint. But the point is, I feel honored being stepped on by a Varsity Tennis player — especially if he’s a member of the Valpo team, which incidently made the “Final Eight " in the state. Not too many teams do that, you know. It’s been great to see this team grow in determination. Take, for instance, the fact that the Netters were down 1-5 at the beginning of the season, and ended up with a record of 11-9. They even snatched the Sectional and Regional championships. If you ' d like to put a little topspin on this fact, you might like to know they won 11 out of 18 tie-breakers! If I were a team member, I doubt I’d be able to hold up so well under pressure. Coach Steve Doak must be awfully proud of his outstanding singles players, like Karl Meyer (16-6) and Dave Mason (15-7). Oh no, here comes another one of Lee Shirer’s superb lobs — hel-Mp! 4. As the suspense builds during a decisive match, sophomore letterman Dave Mason delivers a powerful service. 5.

Boys ' Tennis — 91 Team’s triumph is no fairytale Once upon a time there were 24 little girls growing up in Valparaiso. They had different lifestyles, but one common interest — gymnastics. As the girls grew, their interest in the sport grew with them. Eventually these 24 girls became members of the VHS gymnastics team. Third year coach, Lorri Walker, is pleased with the girls’ performance. They had a better overall record than ever before, and won the majority of their meets in the beginning, intermediate and optional categories. Walker introduced a new strategy when she did not choose team captains. She felt the girls would work harder if they realized no one person was leading the team. " I stressed team wins as opposed to individual wins,” Walker stated. Walker also introduced what she called " overlapping practices. " Instead of the entire team practicing at once, groups of ten would practice for 45 minutes each. This resulted in more individual attention for the girls. It seemed these new strategies paid off, as the team turned out three conference champs: Micky Mannel, Holly Adams, and Debbie Brady. 92 — Gymnastics OPPONENT Griffith River Forest Hobart IT: w 1 w w w 0 w w w Highland L L w Michigan City Rogers w w w LaPorte w W w Chesterton w w w Portage w w w Munster w w w Portage Opt.

Gymnastics — 93 Brains and brawn pin down riv als Question: What sport resembles a twister game, but calls for more dedication, strength, and split-second timing than most indoor activities? Answer: Wrestling This year ' s VHS wrestling coaches John Cook and Chuck Stanier guided their teams to reach the highest levels of the three main essentials needed for competitive wrestling. One requirement for a strong team is that the wrestlers have to be willing to dedicate their time, and control their weight throughout the entire season. A wrestling meet consists of matches in 13 different weight classes. To be eligible for the class, each combatant has to weigh- in at no more than the exact maximum weight. Wrestlers must be careful to watch what they eat. and how much they eat every day. Not only was individual strength a key factor, but the team as a whole did remarkably well, Along with taking third place in the Regionals, the Varsity team, which Cook believes to be the best Valpo has had, pinned an 8-3-1 season record on the charts. Accordingly, the J.V. was 10-3, and the Freshmen wre 4-2. It’s been said you need both brains and brawn to develop an exceptional team, and one of the strongest points of the VHS wrestlers was their ability to react to situations as quickly as possible. Knowing the right moves at the right time is a skill that Seniors Kyle Shortridge (16-6), Bob Philips (19-3), and state finalist Mark Harbold (24-2), have mastered. Harbold placed 2nd at the State meet, and received the Mental Attitude award. 94 — Wrestling 1 Utilizing the ankle-breakdown method against a Portage opponent, junior heavyweight Brian Dogan takes control of the match. 2 VARSITY WRESTLING TEAM — Front Row: Mark Harbold, Jay Piatek, Kevin Brophy, Mickey C ampbell.

Coach Ciciora observed the Viqueens develop into a very successful ball club. This was Ciciora ' s second year as Varsity coach for girls ' basketball. He feels the girls have improved greatly compared to the previous year. They achieved their goal of reducing errors and fouls, and in general played a tougher game. The girls, strong both in speed and height, played as a true team with no one player outshining the rest.

You arrive on time, sit down, and wait. Suddenly, the lights go off and ... oh — it ' s only the warm-up band. At times, the Junior Varsity basketball team can be compared to a warm-up band. Good as they may be, their work is constantly overshadowed by the Varsity games. Valpo’s J.V. team did much more than just warm up the crowd. Besides beating Lafayette Jeff by a large margin, they tallied a respectable 13-7 record. Commenting on the team’s acute shooting ability, first year coach, Bob Punter, remarked, “With a great deal of emphasis on shooting, our practices paid off against Hobart. We scored 32 consecutive points without letting our opponents make any.” Jeff Furlin, who scored a season high 216 points, and Doug Powell, second leading scorer, contributed to the team’s performance. Leading rebounders were Phil Miller (134), and Dave Lebryk (131). This year’s Sophomore team finished with an all-time high record of 10-3. Coach Lew Rhinehart said the astonishing thing is that of the three games they lost, two of them were by one point and the other was lost in overtime. Top scorer was Mark Keller (107 pts.), while Ken Oglesby, had a .794 free throw percentage.

I’m finally retiring as a sports editor. It’s time to hang up my tennis shoes and typewriter. Cleaning out my desk brings back so many memories . . . wait a minute! What’s this? Oh yes, my monthly diary of the 1977-78 VHS Varsity basketball team. Let’s see, what ' s inside?” November — Through drills on individual fundamentals and special body conditioning practices, I watched the Varsity basketball team prepare for a long hard season. December — In his sophomoric year as coach, Skip Collins seems to be encountering trouble getting his team started on the right foot. With juniors dominating the team, and only two returning lettermen, winning becomes difficult. They lost five out of their first seven games. January — I’m beginning to see an increased amount of hustle. This team is coming alive! Conditioning is paying off in the players ' battle to compensate for their height disadvantage (starting lineup averages under six feet). February — “Unification” is the key word now. Even the practices are centered on team plays. Coach Collins is incorporating individual skills with different basketball strategies. I can see great progression in the players’ attitudes, and student support is increasing every day. March — What an unexpected finale! The tenacious Vikings peaked at Sectionals, claiming the crown. I was afraid the coal strike delay between Sectionals and Regionals would hurt their momentum, but the Vikes accelerated against South Bend LaSalle and came within one basketball of being Regional champs. Coach Skip Collins told me the team came very close to reaching its peak potential which, in a sense, means more than winning. In my opinion, credit should be given to senior co- captains Jeff Gebhardt, who was the leading rebounder (207) and most valuable player, and to Steve Clouse, the Vikings ' best overall defensive player. I should also include junior Brad Blastick, second highest scorer in VHS basketball history with 515 total points. Together, these Vikings helped the team to achieve a final 18-8 record. Varsity Basketball — 101 Golfers change with the tides During the winter, Lake Michigan is frozen solid, and there is little change in the lake from day to day. During the summer months, however, the lake is unpredictable. Sometimes it is calm and placid. At other times the waves crash violently against the shoreline. This year golf at VHS could be compared to Lake Michigan. The Girls’ Golf team played consistently throughout their season. The boys, on the other hand, had an up-and- down year. First year Coach Nancy Hutton guided the girls through an outstanding season. They went undefeated, placing first in both Regionals and Sectionals, and sixth in State. As Coach Hutton stated, “They were the most perfect team a coach could ever ask for.” Each girl made her own individual contribution. During the Portage meet, senior Clarissa Hansen sank her first hole-in-one. Senior Karen Marencik was Medalist in all of the team’s eleven victories, as well as Co-Medalist at Sectionals. Senior Cathy Pavacik was sixth Low Medalist at State. Although the boy golfers were more inconsistent in their playing, they had a good season overall. Due to the large response at tryouts, Coach Bob Cain was able to choose truly outstanding golfers. All Varsity players broke 30 at one time or another. Juniors Jeff Jackson, Jim Stanton, and Gary Krueger all made the Conference team. Krueger, a three-time Varsity player, led the Conference in low scores and by being Medalist at the Sectional meet, led the team to a first place finish. 1.

Icy facts make sophs tough “No fair! You can ' t throw snowballs with ice in the middle! Those things are dangerous. How are we going to have a good, fair fight if you keep disguising lethal pieces of ice with “soft snow?” On the outside, the J.V. football record of 4-4 can ' t truly reflect the toughness of this year’s team. Scrape away the first impressions of a .500 record, and take a closer look at the cold, hard facts. Lately it’s been proven that the Duneland Football Conference doesn’t mess around with " soft snow.” They’ve held the Class AAA State Championship for three years now, and the strength of these teams comes from proper training in the Junior Varsity stages. At the J.V. level, strong competition is nothing to be laughed at, and members of Valparaiso ' s J.V. team don’t laugh — they work. All the long, hard hours of practice paid off when the sophomores delt Chesterton their only defeat by trouncing them 41 to 12. Up and down seasons don’t always hurt a team. In fact, they can make a team. Coaches Sid Reggie and Pat Murphy provided the training; the team did the hustling. J.V.

Munster Crown Po Portage Gary Roosevelt Chesterton Michigan City Rogers LaPorte Merrillville Plymouth Hobart 106 — Varsity Football VHS sets sights on Hoffman When John F. Kennedy was tragically assissinated, the nation ' s eyes turned towards Vice-President Johnson. Would he be a good President? How would the Johnson Administration compare to the one under Kennedy? The United States watched and waited. In 1977, after 14 years of serving as head coach of the VHS Varsity Football team, Mr. Tom Stokes resigned. After much deliberation, Mr. Mark Hoffman was selected to become his sucessor. How would his management of the team differ from that of Stokes? Valparaiso watched and waited. Coach Hoffman introduced many new ideas to the team. He organized a " summer football camp.” Team members would undergo a rigorous morning practice session, eat lunch in the school cafeteria, and practice again until 3:00 p.m. Hoffman also initiated a change in strategy. The Viking’s defense was switched from a 4-3 system to a 5-2 angle defense. Football fever affected Mrs. Hoffman as well. She founded a “Mothers’ Clinic,” in which over 120 sportsminded moms would meet to discuss football and ways they could be helpful to their hard-working sons. This year, out of the 61 players on the Varsity Team, 44 were juniors. Many excellent players emerged from the predominately underclass team. Senior middle guard, Mark Leveritt was named All-State and was chosen for First Team Duneland Conference. Also chosen for First Team Duneland Conference was senior Kyle Shortridge, who was the team ' s halfback. Chosen for Second Team Duneland Conference were senior Tim Crowley and junior Mike Brown. Although they finished with a 3-7 record, Coach Hoffman was proud of his team and said, " The boys put forth a tremendous effort and gave everything they had.” Varsity Football — 107 Viqueens bump into new strategy Small children walk on unsteady legs. Their entire lives seem to consist of taking a few small steps, falling, standing up, and taking a few steps more. This year the Varsity Volleyball Team resembled the stumbling toddler as it moved through the season on shaky limbs. It seemed as though each sweet taste of victory was soured by a loss; and in turn the agony of every defeat was replaced by the ecstasy of a win. “The girls were pretty good at serving and setting,” reported Coach Doug McGriff, “but they were weak when it came to serve reception and volleying. " In hopes of attaining more wins. Coach McGriff decided it was time for a change in strategy. The girls switched from a 2 1 3 defense to the 2 4 system. Even after a somewhat depressing string of losses, the girls refused to give up, and they ended the season with a respectable 7-10 record. 1.

There are many times when these famous athletes are referred to as " Superstars.” However, students at VHS need to look no further than their own school yard to find outstanding swimmers. In order to find out what a superstar really is, one must take a closer look at the word letter-by-letter. S is for Swim team, and at Valpo, this is synonomous with dedication. It took total commitment for swimmers to make it to practice while most of Valpo was snowbound in the " Blizzard of ’78.” U is for United. All four high school grades were represented in the pool. The remarkable participation provided unification of the team and strength in all events. P is for Progress. A key factor in the accomplishments of the VHS swimmers was how much they improved, not how many meets they won. Swimmers hit their strides with record- breaking times at the all- important state finals. E is for Effective leadership. You couldn’t ask for a better swim coach than Skip Bird. Not only did he and assistant coach Tom Rice provide the team with winning strategies, but Coach Bird received the award for 1978 Crown Point Sectional Coach of the Year. Another branch of effective leadership was the remarkable work of senior captains Seth Bretscher, Tim Hannon, and Karl Keller. In fact, all three broke school records this season. R is for Records. During state finals, the VHS swim team practically rewrote the record book. Senior superstar Seth Bretscher commanded the performance by breaking the state and school record in the 200-yard individual medley with a time of 1:57.96. His first place time granted him a standing ovation. Other new VHS records are: 200- yard freestyle, 1:49.85, by Mark Mavity; 100-yard butterfly, 0:54.08, by Craig McCarron, 200-yard medley relay; and the 400-yard freestyle relay. 1.

Girls ' Swimming — 113 JV Stickballers learn with time Walking, talking and eating are three important tasks that we perform everyday. Yet, almost everyone takes these abilities for granted. If one stops to think about these skills one realizes that no one is born with these talents. Most people require at least two years to learn how to walk with coordination, talk sensibly, and develop enough teeth to eat solid foods. This year’s Junior Varsity Baseball Team, coached by Charles Geiss, can be compared to a child who slowly develops good habits and matures in learning important skills. Although baseball is a sport which is engrained in the American culture, it must be taught slowly and carefully, in the same manner as a baby learns basic skills. Due to Valparaiso ' s first annual monsoon season this spring, Coach Geiss introduced to his J.V. team some new concepts in teaching baseball indoors. To help raise the batting averages, a “Jugs Pitching Machine” was used for indoor hitting, along with certain body movement techniques and ‘stickball’ practices. Meanwhile, the pitchers were occupied with weight-training sessions, unusual pick-off plays, and chalkboard diagrammed defensive situations. According to Coach Geiss, this extra indoor work paid off in the 1X4 — J.V. Baseball games. He felt that the JV’s had an abundance of talent, and he explained that of all JV teams he has ever coached this year’s had the best pitching abilities and made the fewest outfielding mistakes. Contributing to the team ' s strong defense were infielders Brian Wikle, and Mike Daras. Daras also won the award for highest offensive points. This year’s outstanding pitchers were sophomores Jeff Furlin, Tom Heron, Dave Farrow, and Charlie Baggs. 1. Recipient of the Batting Average Award, Dave Farrow eyes left field for the ball as he rounds second base. 2. Noted for his ability to gun down men trying to steal bases, catcher Tony Bucich proves he’s also a good offensive contribution. 3. Sophomore Tom Heron, clutch pitcher for the JV ' s, displays his fastball technique which enabled the team to upset Merrillville 8-2 in their second meeting of the season. 4.

Other than apple, big cars, and The persistent Varsity team, which thriving industry, the United States is known around the world for its national sport — Baseball. What could be more apealing than attending a baseball game on a hot summer day, eating hot dogs, and occasionally taking a sip of beer or coke? And who hasn ' t gone to a baseball game with the hope that just maybe he’ll catch a foul ball? Although baseball at VHS can’t compare with the major league games, the Varsity Baseball team can easily identify with the hardships of completing a season. Heavy rains, which force many professional games to be postponed, have also affected this year’s Varsity schedule. It might have been tempting for Coach Pat Murphy and his Varsity team to simply ‘‘take a rain-check.” Ten games had to be rescheduled due to the inclement spring weather at the beginning of the season, and many hours of valuable outdoor practice time were also lost. was dominated by juniors and dubbed his ‘‘youngest team” by Coach Pat Murphy, was up against the toughest of competitors. Rivals such as Chesterton, Merrillville, and LaPorte were each rated in the top ten in the state. In spite of inconsistencies, such as losing to Chesterton by 10 runs on one day, and then beating the Hobart Brickies 21-5 the next day, the Varsity players retained a positive attitude and a remarkable desire to compete. Senior pitchers Mark Leveritt, Keith Gesse, and Paul Rettinger put forth a tremendous amount of effort on the mound. Honored for their outstanding defensive contributions were seniors Mark Albers, Mike Bozarth, and junior Steve Carichoff. They received two-year lettermen awards from Coach Pat Murphy at the annual Spring Sports Awards Banquet. S. Central Portage Hebron Chesterton Hobart M. C.

Come watch the girls volley and serve their way to victory against the toughest teams in the state. Experience the excitement that the Girls ' Tennis Team is known to generate!” Coached by Steve Doak, the Girls ' Tennis Team boasts of up-holding the tradition of never losing a match on home soil. This record dates back to when the team was established five years ago. Regardless of the inclimate weather the girls had to deal with, the team practiced hard and ended their season with an impressive 10-2 record. The team advanced to Sectionals, where they were edged out of victory by one point against LaPorte. Nevertheless, two of the Viqueens, Sharon Gold and Carol Rough, went on to face the competition at Regionals. 118 — Girls ' Tennis 1.

While 1976 is remembered for the bicentennial hoopla, 1977 was noted for the energy crunch. This year, 1978, will long be unfondly reminisced for its severe and unseasonable weather. During the winter, which lasted until April, we were plagued with unusually low temperatures, and an overabundance of snow and rain. While most people managed to cope with these conditions without visible after-effects, some people were severely hampered by the weather conditions. One such group was the VHS Boys’ Track Team. Since the season began under such unlikely conditions, fate seemed to be against the team from the start. During the first outdoor practices in March, the team had to borrow a snow-blower from the Valparaiso airport to remove the deep snow from the track. Added to the problems affecting the team at the season’s opening were the claims made by some local sports critics, that this year’s team wouldn’t by rains compare to the outstanding achievements of the five previous years’ teams which ranked within the top 10 in the state. Then, key injuries to three of the team’s best athletes just before the Chesterton dual meet, caused the Vikings to lose to the Trojans by one point. Chesterton then went on to take the Duneland Conference Championshfp. Despite the gloomy season opening, senior tri-captains Craig Bixler, Tim Crowley, and Tom Lichtenberger took it in stride. They led their team to an outstanding 9-2 dual meet season which helped earn the name of “the most consistently winning team” in the Duneland Conference. Showing that the team had depth, five members qualified individually for the Regionals. Award winners for their achievements were: senior Tim Crowley, most valuable player; senior Mike Polite, best runner; junior Tim Balko, best field event participant; senior Craig Bixler, Mental Attitude Award; and 880-runner Bob Strong, most improved.

Once you ' ve mastered the first few steps, the rest should come easily, right? Well, members of the Girls ' Track Team know that running means more than putting one foot in front of the other in rapid succession. Under the guidance of Coach Nancy Walsh, 44 girls learned the importance of proper breathing, and warm-up exercises. The team practiced every afternoon from 2:30 to 4:30. Each girl was assigned a special routine to help her prepare for upcoming events. Individuals also learned how to pace themselves correctly during a race. “The girls are more polished than in previous years,” stated Coach Walsh. “They enjoy the competition and challenge, and are more serious about their sport. " Outstanding runners included third- year Varsity member, Terri Oplinger, who was voted Most Valuable Player; Leigh Stokes, who received the Top Track award; and Cindy Erichiello, who received the Top Field award. Mille Marshall and Brigid Bartelmo were voted Most Improved Players. Girls ' Track 1. JV CHEERLEADERS — Front Row: Kelly Welch Seco nd Row: Holly Adams, Lori Mitchell Third Row: Ruth Lohmeyer.

Out of the dust, onto the field What does a high school do with 32 green and white flags? A) Nothing; B) Display them around the school; C) Start a flag corps. VHS was faced with this very problem. A few years ago the school purchased 32 green and white flags. At the time, no one had any use for them so they just gathered dust. Finally, band directors Mr. Dan Pritchett and Mr. Robert Miller decided to utilize the flags and form a flag corps. The members of the corps were chosen from band volunteers. Sixteen girls formed the corps; four from the ‘A ' band and twelve from J the ‘B ' band. Their main job is to march with the band in parades and to perform during the halftimes at football games. Some people feared that the Flag Corps would be identical to the Vikettes, but these fears were unwarranted. Performing in the halftime shows is the only thing the two groups have in common. The Flag Corps is more military oriented than the Vikettes, which is mainly a dance ensemble. Maneuvering the flags in an orderly fashion takes stamina, coordination, and practice. The girls began to work on their routines, which were created by Mr. Pritchett, in July and performed them throughout the football season. Sponsored by Mr. Dan Pritchett, the Flag Corps received an enthusiastic response. Pritchett plans to increase membership next year and hopes that more of the girls will be able to attend training camp this summer. Spirit 125 CLOSE-UPS Joe’s more than an acquaintance Joe Student is an unpredictable fellow. Classified as a ‘‘multiple personality,” one never knows just how he’ll come across. Sometimes he ' s The Joiner — a guy who loves to get involved. He’s president of the National Honor Society, secretary of the Student Council, and a devoted member of half a dozen other clubs. Some people refer to Joe as The Brain. As a scholar, he studies diligently for each Government quiz and every Physics test. A regular on the honor roll, he always hands his homework in on time. Joe can be a Rah, practically bursting with school spirit. He knows his support is appreciated, so he attends each and every game, cheering the Vikes to victory. Sometimes he’s The Class Clown. When playing this role, he loves t o make people laugh, and enjoys being in the spotlight. Both students and teachers alike have to smile at his antics. Or Joe can be the all-out Jock. Whether he’s into football, swimming, or track, Joe endures long, hard practice sessions to make his team “Number 1.” The next time you see Joe, Take a Closer Look — he happens to be you. J Album — 127 Mythical cloud cover obscures S © all-out action Ask the average student in the hall what the word " administration” brings to mind and he ' ll probably say it’s a group of stodgy old teach- ers and businessmen which does nothing but strike down all good proposals and institute its own wicked ways which conform to the ideals of 18th century educa- tion. The only truthful part of the above definition is the group of teachers and businessmen; the rest are simply old fallacies. The ad- ministration is an active part of school functionings and only remains nebulous in student’s minds due to its behind-the-scenes action. As the saying goes, often the good things remain unnoticed. Only those things that are bad receive recognition. And so is the case. The administration is known mainly for its " bad points, " such as the anti-drinking campaign in the fall, the anti-drug crusade last year, the enforced closed lunch hour at the high school, and its disapproval of senior skip day. Yet the administration is respon- sible for many good ideas around the school. Most students don ' t rea- lize it, but the administration en- dorsed the new scheduling system, additional physical education funds for the purchase of fencing equip- ment, Christmas and spring vacation trips abroad, the proposed trip to Cambridge this summer, the trip made to Stratford, Ontario by stu- dents in the Skakespeare class ....

I can’t think of any references. " " You should have talked to Mr. Gray before you came here. He ' s the job placement coordinator at VHS. He would have told you what to expect when applying for a job.” " I think I remember hearing about him. Isn’t his job an experiment of some sort?” " Right. If this program is beneficial to the s tudent body, others like it will be established.” " I sure wish I’d asked him for help.

Guidance — 131 Teachers build fires, reputations Perhaps the first teacher on the earth was the only caveman who knew how to build a fire without burning his fingers. Since he was so ingenious, others less clever elected him to show them his technique, and the first teacher was born. Later, as man grew into a more sophisticated creature, he learned more difficult things, such as reading and writing. Teachers became so involved with instruction that they seemed to become oblivious to the world around them, and thus became the target of many myths. For example, all teachers supposedly were old- fashioned people . . . People of the twentieth century are learning that teachers are ordinary people like everyone else. They walk the dog, drive their cars into the mud, and detest going to school in blizzards. There’s more to most teachers than books and homework. Some, envisioning themselves as resurrected Marco Polos, travel all over the world and visit such exotic places such as Brazil and Santo Domingo. Some teachers, however, travel only as far as their alma mater to finish work on their Master ' s degrees. Others, feeling they’re more the " jock” type, participate in sporting activities such as the summer baseball league, the mushball league, and the women’s volleyball league. During the summer, some teachers also play in the band which performs at Kirchoff park on Wednesday evening.

It was a quiet, friendly place. For many years it remained virtually unchanged and oblivious to the hustle-bustle of surrounding metropolitan areas. But eventually word got out that Valpo had a pleasant atmosphere, and was, quite frankly, a nice place to live. Some of the people moved there in search of jobs, and others were seeking relief from the pre- fabricated life of suburbia. The population increased to 24,000, and Valpo was no longer thought of as a ‘‘little cow town in the boonies.” New businesses sprang up, including everything from fast-food chains to shopping centers. The already established firms, such as Costas and Tittles, expanded to meet the growing needs of the community. We now refer to Valparaiso as a small city, but regardless of the growth that has taken place over the past few years, it has not yet lost its small town charm. Many businessmen seem to be acquainted with most everyone in the community. It ' s not unusual for the gas station attendant to recognize you, or have the supermarket cashier greet you by name. In our modern world of numbers and machines, it’s nice to know that local merchants still find the time to offer friendly, personalized service. TITTIES Ad a Glance 1. Tittles Foods 2.
