In addition to fortune-tellers and economists, the average men-on-the- street are trying to predict the future. Many psychologists hove stated that mon will destroy the earth os well os himself by the yeor 2000. Others have the opin- ion that mon hos taken the power of a type of god. While no one con calculate exactly where mon will stand in the up- coming years, by looking at his past ac- complishments it is evident he hos al- ways adopted to ony given situation with the drive of perfection and the od- venture to experiment new ideos sup- porting him. Man hos always desired the need for change; he hos never been satisfied with the consistent methods of the doy-fo-day syndrome. Mon has alwoys been on the search for new and more relevant infor- mation, even though his quest was often difficult and criticized. Columbus ' journey to disprove the socially-accepted theory that the world was flat was ridiculed by his peers. Similorly, Woodward and Bern- stein struggled to prove thot government corruption did exist by piecing together the information which finally uncovered Wotergote. Because boredom caused by mono- tomy has been man’s major enemy, the search and discovery of new entertain- ment, educational, and technological methods continues. Although VHS retains successful traditional methods, if has al- tered its structure to include innovation in the clossroom, extracurricular activities, and athletics. The attitudes and expan- sion of work and activity have broad- ened to include " something for every- one. " Therefore, in oltering our fixed pat- terns by adjustments and variations we hove taken the step of Breaking the Mold.

Coming home to a tradition While Homecoming is a time for alumni to reunite with old acquaint- ances and to reflect upon the past, this event also invites present students to experience the excitement and antici- pation in the high-spirited approach toward the traditional weekend. To prepare for this annual event, bobby sox and sweatsuits became the popular attire during Spirit Week when students and faculty displayed their en- thusiasm by dressing according to a dai- ly theme. On Friday, September 28, anxious spectators filled the stands at the game to cheer the Vikings to victory. The VHS Marching Band provided the background music as Homecoming candidates were introduced by Pep Club officers at the long-awaited half- time. After Ruth Lohmeyer was crowned queen, with Lisa Mitchell as princess, the Vikings completed the game in a 28-20 win over Michigan City Rogers.

The reality of a materialistic and corrupt world awakens the Madwoman as well as the audience. Under the direction of Alice Noble, Devious plan expels wickedness the VMS Drama Deparment probed a brand new area of theatre comedy re- quiring greater insight into the person- alities portrayed. Actors dedicated long hours of pre- cious time to perfect their lines and dramatic gestures. With the combined effort of several stage crews, the set was finally completed the day before the opening performance, November 16. The application of detailed makeup played a large role in creating many of the characters who had to achieve older-looking appearances. Some char- acters underwent the aging process for more than an hour, creating beards, gray hair, and facial lines. Costumes ranging from torn rags to elegant silk gowns appeared beneath the spotlight throughout the two hour satirical farce.

After the couples arrived at their destination they were welcomed with old-fashioned baked goods and the entertaining sounds of Sircus. For those with wishful hearts, Santa Claus and his helper were present to listen to the students ' Christmas lists. Although traveling back to a holiday season of yesteryear will always be re- membered, 100 girls and their dates found an equal amount of fun in the modernday atmosphere at the annual King of Hearts Dance.

The disease is commonly referred to os " involvement. " Diagnosed by symptoms of dedicorion and leadership, rhe porienrs usually remained in rhe serious store throughout high school. Characterized by excessive omounrs of decorating lodsers, preparing for donees, entertaining audiences, or organizing ond advertising school activities, these students in each club or organization compensated for rhe lock of porticiporion by fellow members. Though port-rime jobs dominated rhe free rime and determined the omounr of rime devoted to clubs, VHS hod 21 clubs and orgonizorions which were available to oil srudenrs. Although rhe clubs concerned with supporting ond promoting mony of rhe outstanding Viking reams were rhe most visible, eoch club hod o specific purpose ond task. The groups ranged from rhe honorory orgonizorions to which one must be seleaed, to service orgonizorions which worked with rhe community. Foreign Exchange Club still boosted rhe largest membership for ony orgonizorion, while rhe Fellowship of Christian Athletes, now in its fourth yeor, was rhe second largest. Due to present day orritudes of srudenrs, however, o few clubs and orgonizorions underwent major changes in membership. For example, w ith o 40% increase in porticiporion, DECA for rhe first rime in four years ploced successfully or store competition. Funding of dubs and orgonizorions underwent major changes olso, due to students ' orritudes toward rhe rrodirionol fund-roiser: rhe sockhop. As o result of rhe onri-disco movement, orrendonce or sock-hops and donees dropped so much rhor several olreody planned donees were cancelled. New rrends, such os marathons were another money-making alternative, airhoug. , most clubs and organizations relied on membership fees ond boke soles to fund their expenses. Clubs Division — 27 The beauty and the beast: Valpo’s real life fairytale When you think of it, a beauty and a beast are so different. Yet, somehow, fate smacks them face to face, and it’s almost natural to find them together. For the first time in the history of VHS the beauty and the beast were found to- gether. Although a Homecoming beauty has been a tradition at Valpo for many years, this is the first year of recognition for a true beast, the “Ugly Man.” The Ugly Man Contest was created by Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) members and their sponsors. Coaches Skip Collins and Dale Ciciora. Pictures of “Ugly Man” candidates — six students and six faculty members — were dis- played before the student body. Student and faculty members voted by donating money to the fund of their candidate. After a week of voting, senior Craig McCarron was elected the ugliest beast on campus. Besides the “Ugly Man” contest, FCA sponsored other fund-raising activities in- cluding a basketball marathon, a chili supper, and a pancake breakfast. FCA is a national organization which is open to all students who are members or who plan to become members of an ath- letic team. Club meeti ngs were held every other week at the home of a member. While VHS students were voting an “Ugly Man”, they were also considering who the next Homecoming Queen should be. Homecoming is a major activity for Pep Club. To prepare the student body for the VHS Homecoming weekend, the Pep Club promoted Spirit Week, wich includ- ed a powder puff football game, a pep session, and a variety of themed dress-up days. The club’s new sponsor. Miss Elaine Bever. felt that all sports should be get- ting equal coverage. To enforce this idea she has stressed expansion on the cover- age of girls’ and minor sports. Food service staff members Mrs. Sharon Ham- mer, Mrs. Phyllis Hunt, and Mrs. Judy Hawes show school spirit participating in 50’s day during Homecoming Pep Week. To raise funds, FCA created the “Ugly Man” contest in which students voted senior Craig McCarron this year’s winner. 1(£N ' S , use rMi5 WJ 5 ficruKC ' CUN Lock SENIOR ttfF’ DEI ncCkkffcA A Picruk£ yj WTN fi Robert Kedforo Co OHLY CM Cmcit - ™ FUCM HCFt. .

Through the Foreign Exchange Club, visiting a foreign country is only part of the fantasy. The ability to understand cultures and to gain international ties are created through the overseas program. Any FEC member was eligible to go overseas during the summer or year pro- gram. Interested students filled out appli- cations outlining their interests and rea- sons for applying. Then, representatives from several local philanthropic organiza- tions interviewed each student to make the final decision determining whether the student would be a worthy candidate to go overseas. To give financial aid to those selected for the program, FEC sponsored monthly movies for students, explained President Paul Smith. Other activities planned by the Executive Board included a trip to Brookfield Zoo, the musical “Annie”, an Eagles Concert, and the Ice Follies. In addition to the monthly, after-school meetings, students held gatherings in their homes to further explore foreign countries and their cultures. Students hosting the meetings lived overseas last summer and students attending these home gatherings were interested in learn- ing more about that particular country. Kicking-off second semester FEC ac- tivities was the Foreign Feast. Those at- tending the annual event brought foreign food dishes which were arranged smor- gasbord-style according to countries. Students assigned to teams labeled Ger- many, South America, and Scandinavia provided after-dinner entertainment. Culminating FEC’s activities was Inter- national Understanding Weekend which was held May 2-4. From Friday until Sun- day members hosted or had the opportu- nity to mingle with foreign students. Trying to pass the lifesaver during a contest at the Foreign Feast, juniors Mary Farell and Lau- rie Lambert are a perfect study in concentra- tion. Foreign Exchange Club — 31 ■■ freaking away Summer is a time for students to put books out of sight and schooi out of mind.

Musicians time well-spent; capture awards To a high school student, spare time was a precious commodity. Many stu- dents filled their time with jobs, sports, and of course, homework. Some, howev- er, dedicated themselves to music. Mem- bers of the Carolers, Jazz Band, and Flag Corps spent endless hours practicing and rehearsing for concerts, contests, half- time shows, and other public appear- ances. The 21 members of Carolers performed throughout the year at concert and var- ious civic events. Not only did the group learn routines to the swing and pop songs they performed, but it also practiced reg- ular concert choir music. Also, Carolers participated in NISBOVA, and received high ratings. New to the group this year was mod- ernized outfits, which replaced the out- dated mini-skirts and bell bottoms worn in past years. Choir Director Rich Hein had a very positive attitude about this year’s group and remarked, “They’re a very energetic and a strong ensemble.’’ “Jazz Band tried to encourage a new way of approaching music’’, explained Director Dan Pritchett. At their weekly evening practice sessions, members stud- ied swing and jazz compositions and did improvizations. Jazz Band performances this year included the NISBOVA contest, and Spring Jazz Festivals. Hard work and dedication were the ba- sic ingredients of the Flag Corps, an out- growth of the marching band. Meeting three afternoons a week, the 19 member squad practiced and perfected shows performed with the marching band at home football games. Mrs. Kim Pritchett, sponsor, attended a drill camp during the summer to get new ideas for the corps. FLAG CORPS — Front Row: Nancy Gray, Karen Cyzyk.

While similar in purpose, the indivi- duals these clubs aided set these two clubs uniquely apart. “Aiding mentally and physically handi- capped adults and children is what YARC is all about,” explained Ms. Michelle Dai- ley, YARC sponsor. She added that stu- dents Involved were sincere and had some interest in teaching or working with the handicapped. YARC’s goals were to expand its ser- vice to all of the handicapped in the sur- rounding community, while making many more citizens and students aware of what YARC involves. This year’s activities sponsored for per- sons at Opportunity Enterprise included a Halloween party, a Christmas party, a piz- za party held at Easel’s, and the Special Olympics. V-Teen’s, another “assisting” organi- zation reached people through its service to the commnity and to VHS. V-Teen’s sponsor, Mrs. Hall, explained that the group hoped to become more of a service organization to the school, as well as the community. To fulfill this goal in the future she plans to initiate activities, such as ushering plays and other school functions. Mrs. Hall said that she was pleased with the students involved, particularly with their work on the King of Hearts dance which netted a $500 profit donat- ed to the Porter County Heart Associ- ation. She added that earlier in the year V-Teen’s assembled food baskets which were distributed for Thanksgiving.

Not only did they put on the fall play, but also produced two children’s plays, April Antics, and conducted work- shops in addition to monthly meetings. “The Madwoman of Chaillot,” a French farce-comedy, was presented on Novem- ber 15 and 16. Hard work and dedication was put toward the production by the cast and crew members to make it a suc- cess. When asked why this particular play was chosen Ms. Alice Noble, director and club sponsor, responded, “It was some- thing we’ve never done before. Because the characters are unusual, it was a real challenge.” Workshops conducted by the Chicago City Limits, an improvisational group, and make-up experts from Ball State Universi- ty were included in the club meetings throughout the year. The Sound and Light Crew took care of the technical aspects of the various pro- ductions presented. Under the guidance of Mr. David Kenning, volunteers learned the many aspects of behind-the-scenes work in the theatre. Applying makeup before an April Antics per- formance is junior Ellen Ernst.

A person doesn’t always have to look to the sports scene, though, to find someone who has his act together. At VHS, such people were found in two special organizations: Office Education Association (OEA), and Peer Counseling. OEA members were senior girls en- rolled in Intensive Office Lab. In this class, skills important for office jobs were devel- oped to prepare students for an office career. OEA accentuated this develop- ment by concentrating on skills such as leadership and social graces. These skills were rated on the state level at a contest in February. OEA fund-raising activities included bake sales and a garage sale. Members also typed for teachers and students. Funds from these activities enabled OEA to send a Christmas basket to the needy. To gain experience in an office situa- tion, students went through the Intensive Office Lab and OEA. Another exper- ience-gaining program was Peer Counsel- ing where students were in charge of helping people. Peer counselors defined themselves as “normal kids helping normal kids with normal problems.” These six high school students not only tried to help their peers, but elementary and junior high school stu- dents as well. Peer counselors also tried to help new students adjust to VHS. Two peer counselor activities were a career orientation program for elementary school students, and a freshman orienta- tion to VHS. The group also helped VHS faculty with testing programs. Und erstanding body language and eye contact helped peer counselors commu- nicate with students. A psychologist spoke with the counselors to teach these and other communication skills. PEER COUNSELORS: Jon Brockopp, Karen An- derson, Kathy Saterlee, Kim Moser, Mr. Don Dick, sponsor.

DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) sponsor, Mrs. Cheryl Leach said that the main purpose of DECA is that it gives students a sense of belonging to VHS that follows them through their jobs which include retailing and wholesal- ing. VICA (Vocational International Clubs of America), male and female students, has many outlets including health, architec- ture, mechanics, electronics and Industri- al Cooperative Training (ICT). These out- lets provide the student with opportunities to utilize their talents in a particular field. Both VICA and DECA provide students with a sense of leadership and accom- plishment which help to prepare them for a job in an area which interests them. Every spring regional, state, national, and international contests are held. Stu- dents compete by completing a written test and exhibiting a skill they have mas- tered. Contests gave students a chance to prove their skills not only to them- selves, but to everyone involved such as parents, teachers, and friends. Dances and bake sales helped VICA and DECA raise funds for annual ban- quets and contests. Banquets were held to let employees and employers become better acquainted. Both VICA and DECA met for one hour a day in class and once a month for club meetings. 42 — VICA DECA HEALTH OCCUPATIONS — Front Row: Karen Nielson, Treasurer JoAnne Walker, Secretary Kandi Walker, Vice-President Dawn Reynolds, President Teresa Mayhew, Mrs. Doris Hildreth, sponsor; Mary Beck, Back Row: Karen Kurns, Roxanne Hephner, LeeAnne Kneifel, Lori Kraft, Jeanne Anderson.

The VHS Student Council acted as the mediator between the students and the administra- tion. Co-Sponsor Donna Gray explained that Student Council let students have more direction over activities and policies. Meetings held every first and third Wednesday allowed Student Council time to plan activities which included a Christ- mas Dance, and student exchanges with other schools. Other fund-raising activi- ties included a film festival, a sock hop, and collecting for muscular dystrophy. Mrs. Gray said that activities only took place if students participated in them. She added, " With 75 members, promot- ing activities was no problem.’’ Although student government is a lot of work and responsibility it was worth the effort, said Mrs. Gray. “It gave students a chance to be active in their own activi- ties.” Students used their authority as mem- bers of Student Faculty Senate to pro- vide communication between students and faculty. Whenever students ran into money or activity problems they could go to Stu- dent Faculty Senate. This year the Junior Class ran into financial difficulties promot- ing prom, and SFS offered assistance. In past years profits from the school pop machine went to the Food Service Department. This year, however. Student Faculty Senate and Pep Club worked out an agreement to have the money go to- ward student activities. STUDENT FACULTY SENATE — Front Row: John Schmucker. Betsy Griffin.

Student Council Student Faculty Senate — 45 Novices find an endless rainbow in competition We all enjoy participating in at ieast one kind of sport, but often don’t have the time or dedication to go out for a team. In intramural sports, however, one can take part just for the fun of it. Approximately 500 VHS students par- ticipated in at least one of the 13 intramu- ral sports programs offered at VHS throughout the year. According to Mr. Vir- gil Sweet, director of the intramural pro- gram. 13 separate programs gave VHS one of the most extensive intramural pro- grams in Indiana. The intramural sports programs offered this year included four seasons of co-ed tennis which were played both indoors and outdoors, boys’ touch football, boys’ basketball, co-ed bowling, co-ed skiing, girls’ basketball, girls’ gymnastics, co-ed water polo, and co-ed volleyball. Attract- ing the largest turn-out were boys’ bas- ketball. co-ed skiing, and co-ed tennis. All sports were sponsored and directed by faculty members. Although the purpose of intramurals was for the enjoyment of the students, all sports were kept on a competitive level with ribbons given for the first four places in each sport. The only requirement for intramurals was that a student may not be a member of a Varsity interscholastic team in that sport. In three of the intramural sports pro- grams a learning experience was offered to give students a chance to learn a skill at a nominal fee of not more than $15. Students traveled to the Pines for ski in- struction. and to Inman’s Bowling Aliey for bowling lessons. Gymnastics instruc- tion was given at VHS.

National Honor Society’s purpose was to recognize students who were strong in leadership, character, service, and schol- arship. One must have at least a 3.0 grade point average to be considered for membership, and each candidate went through a selection process by the facul- ty- In addition to monthly meetings, NHS sponsored the annual Valentine’s Day flower sale which provided funds for the induction ceremony, pins, and the NHS scholarship. International Thespian Society was for those Drama Club members who had ac- cumulated 200 hours or more of stage work. This experience could include act- ing and crew work for the fall production or children’s plays. Thespians also at- tended the annual summer conference at Ball State University and received month- ly publications. Honoring outstanding journalists was Quill and Scroll. Members must have worked on Valenian for at least one year to be considered for membership. Quill and Scroll inductees were honored at the Spring Awards Banquet, hosted by the Journalism Department.

Honorariet — 49 Work, dedication main ingredients of Valenian Take twenty-four imaginative staff members, (some freshly picked, some well-seasoned); add hard work and long hours; mix in both creativity and original- ity, and sprinkle with luck. Baking time required; one year. What do you get? An award-winning yearbook, the Valenian. Although staff members may not all be master chefs, they do work hard to cook up what will be, for many students, their best remembrance of the year. After one semester of journalism, staff members try to learn as much as possible during the summer workshops at Ball State Universi- ty and St. Mary’s College, and during class training periods. Valenian was not only meeting dead- lines, taking photographs, and writing copy, however. To members, it seemed as much a club as it does a class. Every month or two, members met for an early breakfast to break up the routine. They also held a Christmas dinner, and an an- nual spring banquet at which awards were given and the ’81 staff was an- nounced. For all their effort, members received more than just an English credit. They also earned a rewarding feeling of fulfill- ment in producing an award-winning yearbook. The ’79 VALENIAN received CSPA’s Medalist award, and, for the first time in VMS history, the All-American Award from NSPA rating service. When the book has been printed, mem- bers who have worked hard together all year felt almost “like a family,’’ explained Brian Wikle, section copy editor. “Not only does the staff work all year toward a common goal, but the people become close by helping each other when they’re down and celebrating each others’ achievements,” he added.

Orchestra students, Roselynn Young and Tom Schroeder, warm up on their cello’s before be- ginning their class. Ambitions remain unchanged; Band and Orchestra stiii rate John Doe never missed a basketball practice even if it meant missing dinner, skipping a special on T.V., or losing out on a couple of hours of extra sleep, to achieve his goal of becoming a good player. During the first game John sunk 14 baskets, grabbed 12 rebounds, and made 1 1 free throws. He became a hero to his classmates after endlessly leading the team to overwhelming victories and was respected by his fellow teammates who named him Player of the Year. All this came about because of hard work and dedication and the goal to be a good player. Like John Doe, the VHS Band and Or- chestra have simple goals which lead them to bigger things. The goal of the VHS Band according to Director Robert Miller, was to perform as well as possible, and for each student to develop a deeper understanding of the instruments played. This goal helped us to give several good concerts and provide interesting half-time entertainment. VHS Band also achieved superior ratings, the highest given at the State Band Contest, due to their goal. The VHS Orchestra also strived to play as well as possible and to make each student as musically literate as possible according to Conductor Rolando Chilian. They, too, gave several concerts and achieved high ratings at the Symphonic Organization Contest. 54 — Band A BAND — Front Row: S. Swann, R. Kilgour, D. Renshaw, J. Dombrowski, T. Magnetti, K.

A la carte style of music; Choirs sing In the key of variety Smorgasbords offer a multitude of choices. Many types of salads, breads, vegetables, and desserts are served in addition to the various meat selections, ranging from beef to poultry or fish. Though some selections may be especial- ly popular, no one shares the identical preferences with anybody else. Similarly, all people do not have the same tastes in music. For this reason, song selection for the choirs included everything from classical to pop, so there was something to please everyone. While some members enjoyed singing the popu- lar tunes, others favored the challenge the older pieces presented. All songs, howev- er, worked toward reaching the same goals: these included developing voices and learning music reading skills, accord- ing to Choral Director Rick Hein. In an effort to raise money for a spring trip to New Orleans, seniors Tom Hoyt and Tacy Cas- bon worked in concessions during all home basketball games. Two groups, A and B Choirs made up Concert Choir. Also singing with them was a third group. Girls’ Glee Club. To- gether they did four formal concerts last year, but A Choir, called the Carolers when singing by themselves, did about ten additional performances last year for community organizations and businesses. Although practicing for concerts kept the choirs busy, they also worked to pre- pare for vocal competitions in the winter months. The contests ranged from NIS- BOVA in January, to a concert choir con- test in April. Between these two, there were also contests for solo and ensemble, and swing choirs. A final project the choirs took on was earning money for a spring trip to New Orleans. Choir members volunteered to work in the concession stands during the home basketball games selling candy, popcorn and soft drinks to the crowds.

INPUT — How is it possibie to do an in- depth study of the piano when no course is offered as part of the VHS curriculum? Refer to memory banks. OUTPUT — Independent Program- ming for Students (IPS). Any topic that meets the approval of the IPS committee can be studied for a semester by a senior with a study hall. Also researched for a semester were the political systems of the Soviet Union and the United States. Another student chose to make an audio-visual report of the ex- tra-curricular activities at the high school. The IPS program was designed to allow students to expand their knowledge in a certain area not covered in regular classes. Each student works with a facul- ty sponsor and earns credit and grades for his project. At the end of the semester. a report must be presented to the com- mittee for evaluation. INPUT — What course of study is avail- able for students interested only in learn- ing basic skills in math or science courses? OUTPUT — Both the math and science programs provide various levels of study to enable students to take as much or as little of the subject as they desire. Although no changes occurred in cur- riculum or textbooks over the past year, two new full-time teachers joined the fac- ulty. Mr. Lester Snyder became a mem- ber of both programs by teaching chem- istry as well as geometry. Also a newcom- er to the Science Department, Mr. Max Edington taught earth, physical, and life sciences. In addition, both programs also had new department chairpersons. Mr. Ben Austin took over in the Science Depart- ment, and Miss Linda White, the math program.

Although both departments offered a number of valuable classes, some stu- dents choose not to take them because of the misconception that they prepared them only for jobs directly related to the courses. Just like the worn out book cover that hides a brilliant masterpiece, the business and industrial arts classes stored a great many things of value to all students. Best known fo r typing classes, the business department also offered a number of less known. But equally valuable classes. In- cluded in its curriculum were Business Law, which dealt with common business transactions that take place daily; Busi- ness Machines, which gave students the useful skills needed to master seven com- mon business machines; and Distributive Education, which placed students with a job in a field they hoped to enter after high school or college graduation. The industrial arts department also of- fered a variety of classes. Although some industrial arts classes such as Small En- gines, helped prepare students for a di- rectly related job, many of the classes offered basic knowledge that could be applied to several job areas. Introductory and Architectural Drafting courses gave students a good foundation for becoming a mechanical engineer or an architect, as well as a draftsman. Knowledge of elec- tricity, which is valuable not only to elec- tricians but also to construction workers and engineers, was obtained through Residential Electricity. Typing, a course highly recommended for both college-bound and non college bound stu- dents, usually has approximately 60 students per class.

Students remember more than just facts in social study classes Most students probably won’t remem- ber who fired the first shot of the Civil War, but many will remember the more general aspects of the social studies courses. Psychology class covered such factual things as Freud and Skinner’s theories; however, it also covered many other as- pects, perhaps much more memorable. Psychology, designed to give students a good background for college level psy- chology courses discussed such things as what influences a person’s persona lity, and how to make the most out of learn- ing. Presenting relevant information on cur- rent topics was Value and Issues. Facts concerning drugs, sexuality, discrimina- tion, and crime were given. According to Value and Issues teacher Mrs. Pam Bell, the goal of the class was " To become aware of the social problems facing our society today.” Even though facts about Russia, Eur- ope, Africa and other lands were given in various history courses, according to Mr. Martin Miller emphasis was also put on “basic knowledge pertaining to our own social and economic structures.” Such knowledge was given in the senior year with Government and Economics. In these classes students were given infor- mation about the stock market, laws per- taining to Indiana, regulations over voting procedures, and an overall understanding of the government system.

Junior Mark Overton looks on as his classmate, Kathy Samay, prepares to study for an upcom- ing Health quiz. 1 Driver Ed. class sees changes, P.E. and Health stay the same Well, it just happened again. Those pants you bought yesterday for $26 went on sale today for $16. The feeling of being cheated encompasses you. Many sen- iors, juniors, and sophomores had that same feeling of being shortchanged with this year’s change in the Driver’s Training program. After waking up early for almost the entire summer and rearranging family vacations, many students can’t help but be a little envious of those who are able to take the course under the new program, which was initiated to shorten students’ time in summer school. Instead of spending three days a week for eight weeks in summer school as they did in the previous Driver Training pro- gram, students spend only two days a week for four weeks in summer school under the new program. This change was able to be made because the class por- tion of Driver Education was offered to freshmen at the junior high schools, leav- ing only behind-the-wheel driving for the summer. Although this was a big change in the Driver’s Training program, many aspects of the program stayed the same. The number of hours of behind-the-wheel ex- perience, the number of class hours, and the credit given for taking the class re- mained unchanged. While the Driver Training program un- derwent significant change, this year’s physical education program experienced no major changes. The wide range of gym classes helped to relieve students’ sitting- at-the desk blues and kept bodies healthy. Playing a lively game of softball, attempting to win a few games of tennis, or participating in a fencing tournament was a welcome change from the routine of daily classes. Physical activity was not the only way students kept healthy. They also stayed healthy by being informed on the parts and functions of their bodies, which is one of the goals of the Health classes. Health students also learned about boating and fire safety, and had the opportunity to become certified in Cardiopulmonary Re- susitation under the direction of the Val- paraiso Fire Department. 64 — PE Health Dr. Ed.

German students go “Kegein, ” theater students climb the ladder Ask many VHS students what they are doing during spring break and their re- sponse may be visiting relatives, going to Florida, or just loafing. However, some 30 German students broke the usual routine of vacations and went to Germany. There the students visited such famous German cities as Bonn, Cologne, and Berlin. While touring Germany they had many options of how to spend their time. Some of which were ‘Kegein’ which is German bowling, ‘Wandern’ or hiking, visiting the East Ber- lin Opera House or wine tasting. Such trips were planned to acquaint students with a foreign country. Visiting a country was not the only way students became familar with other nation’s cus- toms. The Foreign Language Department familiarized students with other countries by teaching such languages as German, French, Spanish, and Latin, as well as informing them about the customs of the country through films, field trips and out- side reading material. To develop poise and self-confidence was one of the main goals of the Speech classes. Students who took speech classes were required to give informative, persuasive, and demonstrative speeches. For those who still wanted more of a chal- lenge, Dramatic Arts was also offered. This could have been taken as a speech class or just as an elective. The one se- mester course which centered on play production and acting was initiated to give students a well-rounded background of the performing arts. Many students who were interested in acting and the classics turned to the Shakespeare classes, in which various scences from plays were acted out. Al- though the English Department offered such interest-oriented classes, it also of- fered such practical classes as Term Pa- per, and Nuts and Bolts, which centered on basic skills.

Students seeking knowledge find answers in Home Ec. and Art “Oh Great Wise One, I have struggled across two mountain ranges, crawled over three burning deserts and thrashed my way through five jungles to reach you! Now I have but one question to ask of you.” " Yes, my child?” “What is the Secret to Success in this life?” “My child, I fear your struggle has been in vain. There are others, more readily accessible to you who possess the knowl- edge you seek. They are quite willing to impart it to you ...” Although the teachers of the Home Economics and Art departments make no claims of being great gurus or knowing the secret of successful living, they do teach lessons valuable in daily life. Mr. Kurt Anderson, Art Department chairman, said “Involvement is our basic goal.” The program is designed to make students aware of art in their enviroment, because, according to Mr. Anderson, people make decisions all the time deal- ing with color, pattern, or other aspects of art. All advanced courses have prerequi- sites of the one semester courses. Art I, II, and III. These give students a foundation in design, color, and pattern. The more in- depth classes build on these areas in spe- cific directions such as jewelry, ceramics, and a very popular class, photography. In photography, students work with everything from black and white prints to color slides. Also, they practice abstract thinking by giving filmed interpretations of a word or phrase. The photography classes, like the art program as a whole, are full to capacity. Also quickly growing toward classroom capacity in the Home Ec. department. The number of students has enlarged, as has the percentage of boys in the pro- gram. The increase is mainly due to the fact that the classes teach lessons stu- dents will find useful all their lives. Boys expecially favor the family man- agement courses. Girls generally choose cooking and sewing classes, but all are open to both boys and girls. In the past few years, greater emphasis has been placed on dating, marriage, and social problems. Not only do the Home Ec. and Art pro- grams offer students a more casual class- room atmosphere, but they also teach essentials of living without the perils of jungles, mountains or deserts.

What’s that?” No, it’s not a new lunch program. Nor is it an addition to this year’s sports sched- ule. But not many people do know what it is. Although the Pre-Vocational Educa- tion program (PVE) has been at VMS for five years, a large number of people re- main uninformed, or at best, misinformed about the program. First of all, PVE is one of five work- study programs at the high school. Al- though the other four focus on foods, in- dustry, or other areas of business, PVE prepares the students for the working world in general. According to Mr. Jerry Hager, PVE coordinator, it helps students to be self-sufficient and gives them a chance to be independent. The PVE program is divided into two parts. The first is the work section, under the direction of Mr. Hager. He works with PVE students in areas such as filling out job applications, going for interviews, fig- uring sales taxes, and working on the job. Through this program juniors and seniors can be released from school for employ- ment during part of the school day.

Proud Sophomores quench thirst for glory with undefeated season “All for one and one for all”, the fam- ous motto of the Three Musketeers, could also pertain to this year’s Sophomore Football team members. Their strategy and performance was based on working together as a team to overcome all obsta- cles. Team play was the major factor in their outstanding record. The sophomores faced tough opponents such as Chester- ton and Merrillville, and still their team triumphed. The young Vikings finished their season with a proud 8-0 record. Experienced coaching also played an important role in the Viking victories. Coaches Sid Reggie and Pat Murphy have a combined total of 29 coaching years on the sophomore level. JV Football — 77 The coaches are firm believers in giving everyone a chance to play. In order to get each of the 35 players into the game, they have formed “specialty teams.” Kicks- off, punts, extra points, and kick-off re- turns, are each handled by a different squad. Even though the name of the game was teamwork, certain players earned distinc- tion. For this reason, there were two awards given out at the sophomore level. The Star Award, for blocked punts, pass interceptions, and fumble recoveries, was given to Jim Flofferth. Credited with most tackles and assists was Pat Malackowski, this year’s Tackle Award recipient. The leading scorer for the sophomore team was Jim Clark who scored 7 touchdowns.

Naturally, we were disappointed, and very cold. We were pleasantly surprised, however, at the genuine warmth with which we were re- ceived by the Valparaiso fans. Your school and community is to be complimented for the fine sportsman- ship-like conduct displayed, not only on the field, but in the stands as well. I only hope that if the situation is ever re- versed, that Hobart people are as gra- cious as Valpo people. The many well- wishers left us all with a feeling to to- getherness not always found in north- west Indiana today. A sincere thank you from all of us. Sincerely, Dorinne Richardson A Hobart Fan Vikes end season with 6-4 record; take pleasing third in conference How many times have we been told to listen to our elders? We ' re told that their experience can often lead us through many tough situations. The Varsity Foot- ball Team followed this advice through their senior members, as the seniors helped guide the team to a winning sea- son. This year, the Vikings achieved a satis- fying 6-4 record. They placed third in the Duneland Conference, which Head Coach Mark Hoffman feels is the toughest conference in the area. The Vikes were up against such opponents as Munster, Por- tage, Hobart, and Chesterton, and yet they never gave up. The Viking squad gave Munster their only loss of the season which was one of the biggest highlights of the year. Although the Vikings as a team were not in first place, they certainly excelled individually. Ten members of the team be- came Duneland Conference All-Stars. On offense, Tony Priano, Bubba Birky, Tim Leveritt, and Dan Walker were chosen to represent the conference. The defensive All-Stars were Mike Daras, Ron Mueller, Ken Oglesby, Tim Eckert, and Bill Brandt. George Moncilovich was All-Conference kicker. The Viking squad also had players who made All State AP, All State UPl, and All-Area Team. Coach Hoffman felt that the team’s success was contributed largely by the leadership of the 4 team co-captains: Ron Mueller, Tony Priano, Mike Daras, and Dan Walker. They kept the team spirit up and effort at a maximum. After the season, an awards banquet honored players for their efforts. The Most Valuable Player for 1979 was Split End and Line Backer, Mike Daras. Mike also received Defensive Player of the Year and the Tackle Award. Daras led the state in interceptions. Tony Priano was the Of- fensive Player of the Year. Tony gained over 1,000 yards this year. The Specialty Player of the Year was Ron Mueller. Dave Brown, a junior, received the Viking Award for perfect attendance at off-sea- son conditioning practices. The Vikes are already preparing for next year as they have already chosen their new team co-captains. Next year’s co-captains will be Tim Leveritt, Dave Brown, Bubba Birky, and Tim Eckert. All-Conference kicker, George Moncilovich puts one through the uprights tor an extra point. 78 — Varsity Football Valpo fans watch intently as their Vikes battle it out with Crown Point.

Applying textbook style, junior Wendy Horwitz laps the ball on its way towards the hole. Determination, trademark of VHS sports, spurs on young goif team As with almost any form of sport, ex- perience is of utmost importance. In order for the players or the team to excel at what they participate in, they must play and play, acquiring more and more skills as they progress. Gross lack of exper- ience will always show up during a season when such a squad is confronted with a “battle toughened” team, and it gives them incentive to strive for higher goals. In some ways, this year’s Girls’ Golf Team fell into this particular category. In contrast, however, this group played to the best of their ability, and gained the necessary skills. Due to this year’s very young team, made up of only one senior, the fact that youth and inexperience walk side by side was clearly brought to light. To illustrate the team’s youth, only one senior was a member of the team. Jane Lyon, medalist scorer at an amazing num- ber of meets, had the needed back- ground to guide the fledgling squad to a break-even 6-6 record. According to 4- year coach Nancy Hutton, the predomi- nantly junior team did lack some exper- ience, yet made remarkable improve- ments as they progressed into the sea- son. Possibly, most encouraging for the team was the fact that they peaked as a team during the closing stages of the sea- son, a definite factor in their 2nd place finish in sectionals. Along with Lyon, the Valpo Golfers were paced by juniors Eva Lundewall and Wendy Horwitz, two players which Coach Hutton has great hopes for concerning next year’s play. All in all. Coach Hutton was pleased with her girls. Their genuine willingness to work at daily practice sessions paid off in some of their harder matches through the year. Hutton is confident that the 1980 team will be a prime contender for next year’s Duneland Conference title. Despite the youth of her team, Nancy Hutton was proud of their play. “This team was fun to work with”, was her gen- eral overview of the squad. Every member of the group gave their all for their coach and for their teammates. Girls’ Golf — 81 Knowing that the team has done a good job, members Randy Sienkowski, Chris Daly, Joe Prahlow, Scott Morrison, and Randy Fleenor wait to hear their times.

Besides gaining an excellent dual meet standing, the Vikings also excelled in their invitationals. At the Highland Invitational, senior Jeff Wehling broke the school re- cord with a time of 12:23. Leading the team besides Wehling, were juniors Randy Siekowski and Chris Daly, with a strong back-up from senior Chris Hansen, and sophomore Bart Poli- zotto. The team’s performances were greatly improved as they trained to acquire pace and strategy for their races. This tedious process involved running long miles to build up their endurance, and sprinting to strengthen their lungs and hearts. Coach Skip Collins felt it was important to have a combination of speed and endurance to excel in the two and a half mile race. “Personality, and feelings of this rela- tively close group,” remarked Skip Col- lins, “produced the success of this hard- working team.” 82 — Cross Country Exerting himself to get a good place, senior Jeff Wehling, one of Valpo’s top runners, fin- ishes first.

" That seemed to be the only way to sum up the 1979 Girls’ Swimming season. With consistently top-notch swimmers paired with experienced divers, the Vi- queens surged through the year with con- fidence. ultimately compiling a 9-3 record overall (5-1 conference record). In post season play, the team racked up a 2nd place Sectional finish, and ended the campaign with a rank of 20th in the state. Dedicated, hard-working athletes were the key to the group’s impressive creden- tials. More specifically, the seniors gave immeasureable help and advice to the un- derclassmen striving to improve them- selves. Co-captains Jean Carlson and El- lie Sachs led the team both in and out of the water. In the words of girls’ coach Ann Davies, Jean was a " superb team member”, capturing many titles through- out the season in her specialty, the back- stroke. Ellie Sachs, all-conference in the 100-meter butterfly, holds the new VHS record in the 500-meter freestyle and the 100-meter butterfly, placing high in the state rankings. Also outstanding was Lin- da Sizen, who pleased Coach Davies tre- mendously by converting from sprints to long distances. Denise Kendrick, Sandy Washek, Dorothy Harms, and Tracey Redding excelled as well, providing lead- ership and incentive to their fellow swim- mers. Many people tend to overlook the divers, a section of the team not as re- nowned as the remaining swimmers. Ju- niors Maggie Potis, Joann Mischanko, and sophomore Nancy Howard led the divers to a noteworthy standing among the most experienced participants in the state. " Our divers were the team’s stron- gest aspect” remarked Coach Davies of her " second squad”. To cap off a great year, Joann Mischanko finished with an 11th place at the state finals. Against state rivals such as Merrillville, South Bend Clay, and Munster, the Vi- queens proved their ability to stay with the best. Coach Davies explained, " We’re look- ing forward to next year with alot of en- couragement.” With junior Maggie Potis leading the way, the VHS divers excelled throughout the year, in- cluding the post-season events. Representing the new brand of underclassmen coming up through the ranks, sophomore Ja- net Kendall consistently shows her talent in each meet. Coach Ann Davies, her young swimmers lis- tening intently, hands out valuable advice con- cerning the upcoming meet. Girls’ Swimming — 85 Viqueen spirit enhances team attitude, net piay Valparaiso High School’s 1979 Girls’ Volleyball Team was victimized by an overall quality of opponents virtually ex- clusive to this area of the state. Teams such as LaPorte emphasize the mechan- ics and skills of this difficult sport with much more intensity and sophistication, according to Wilma Detwiler, first-year Varsity volleyball coach at VHS. Yet de- spite rigorous competition and a 3-12 re- cord, the Varsity’s strong points are re- freshingly numerous. “These are the best girls I could ever hope to work with,” remarked Coach Detwiler of her squad. She explained that present in every member of the team was a sense of desire and a positive attitude that is essential for building a quality team. In addition, the coach and many of the players believed the respectable depth of their bench was an asset that cannot be ignored. Detwiler elaborated, saying “I could put in anybody from the bench to fill a spot out there.” As with any athletic team, the Viqueens had their quality players. In terms of height, 6’-1” junior Valerie Breen was a vital defensive blocker, rejecting oppo- nents’ offensive spikes. On the other hand, senior Millie Marshall was a true standout when considering overall talent and leadership. Upon close examination of the entire squad. Coach Detwiler confi- dently stated that every player — and the team concept as a whole — had steadily improved throughout the year. Unfortunately, the Varsity will be losing six players to graduation; the remaining seven juniors will be primed and ready for the coming year’s struggles. In contrast to these losses, the Junior Varsity, with Lenore Hoffman at the helm, will be ac- quiring a host of very good freshman players. As J.V. coach, Hoffman provided these newcomers with needed exper- ience in the areas of advanced skills and pressure game situations. With this knowledge, the players will be prepared for their future net play on the tough and competitive Varsity schedule.

Girls’ Volleyball — 87 Netters refuse to surrender to their opponents “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again,” was one of the chief motivations behind the ’79 Viking Netters’ season. Persistence, hard work and endurance proved to be one of the factors for the success of the Boys’ Varsity Tennis Team. Six of the eight losses which oc- cured were by one point, and according to Coach Steve Doak, their schedule was one of the toughest they’ve ever had. “The boys played every point, and re- fused to give up until the match was over,” Coach Doak remarked. “Through this they have grown in maturity and skill level,” he added. Not only did the boys try to improve over the season, but they were expected to play better than the time before. They were to maintain good court conduct and set an example for the school. Leadership, by senior Dave Mason, and sophomore Steve Pitts helped the team get through the rough spots. Along with Mason, Kenny Krebs and Mark Keller will also be lost to graduation. But ac- cording to Coach Doak, the team should retain much of their strength, since many of the players will be returning next year.

Breaking a record can be one of the most difficult things to do because a record is set by someone who puts out his best effort, and that is often hard to beat. The JV and Sophomore teams, however, did not find it impossible and both teams fought their way to the best season re- cords in the history of VHS JV and Soph- omore Basketball. The junior varsity team ended its sea- son with an outstanding 18-2 record, which tied the former Valpo record. This was the third year in a row that Valpo’s JV team won the Duneland Conference, this year topping the second place Merrillville team. “The 12 athletes who played on the JV team were all good,” stressed Coach Bob Punter. He explained that each man had his own talent, and together they com- bined for a winning team. Chuck Collins was the leading scorer with 133 points while Tim Osterhaut grabbed 90 re- bounds to top the charts. The best defen- seman on the team was Tim Lovett who also led in efficiency per minute. Jim Bi- sacky had the best percentage from the charity stripe with 76%. Coach Punter, who was in his third year as JV coach, brought in a winner every year. The Sophomore team went undefeated this year. Coach Lew Rhinehart said, " This year’s team had the best ability and record of my former sophomores. I was working with 10 excellent athletes.” Their undefeated record was a result of team effort. Chris Bucich scored the most points with 99. Jeff Lamberson led in re- bounds with 98, and Pat Whaling’s 28 assists topped the team. Eric Lethen had the best freethrow percentage with 81.3% The sophomores won their own tour- ney, defeating Highland and Munster. Their toughest opponent was Lake Cen- tral, who they defeated 44-37.

According to Coach Skip Collins, this year’s varsity basketball team gave a stage-like performance. This year’s team finished with a 23-3 record and advanced in tournament play to the Semi-State. Coach Collins re- marked that the outstanding season could be attributed to a crop of good shooters such as Rob Harden, voted UPI- All-State, and Roger Harden who scored a record 369 points for a sophomore. Jeff Purlin was voted the Vikings’ MVP, and was selected to the 15 player Academic All-State team. Along with good shooters, Valpo, also had a fine rebounder in senior Phil Miller who grabbed down 198 rebounds this season, and a defensive artist in junior Daryle Keller. Collins said Valpo was able to win most of its close games because both Miller and Keller knew their roles and played to their potential. Having had the best record since the 1933-34 season, the Viking Express was known for its flashy passes and ball han- dling. Collins’ philosophy was to run the ball up the floor as fast as possible be- cause, he explained, quickness can beat size if quickness is smart. This strategy prevailed in the win over M.C. Rogers and South Bend LaSalle in the Regional tour- nament. One of the most exciting games played in the Semi-State this year was when Valpo attacked the overmatched and oversized Fort Wayne South and forced South into three over-times before finally bowing out 64-66. 92 — Varsity Boys’ Basketball Acknowledged as the top sophomore in the state, Roger Harden double pumps for a layout.

Tourney Chesterton 31 20 LaPorte 40 19 Season Record; 13-1 Exciting season comes to end as Viqueens tie for conference first When a student makes the VHS Girls’ Basketball team, she has achieved a great feat. Yet, more importantly, she’s also in store for a new and exciting exper- ience that she will probably remember as a very important part of her high school years. The varsity team ended its season with a proud 13-5 record for a three-way tie for first in the Duneland Conference with M.C. Rogers and LaPorte. This was quite an accomplishment, especially consider- ing that only one starter returned from last year’s team. Valpo lost to Chesterton in the Sectionals after a close, hard game. Coach Dale Ciciora felt this was largely due to the early season injury of Janet Dommer who badly sprained her ankle during the Merrillville game and was un- able to complete the season. Janet led the team in assists. Although the girls played as a team, there were athletes who stood out. Sue Watts broke a season and career record by scoring 469 points in the season and 736 points in 37 games. Watts was also the leading rebounder with 248 and broke a career record by ripping down 380 in her 37 games. Lisa Kenyon had the best percentage from the charity stripe, drop- ping in a total of 43 for 71.6% Ciciora, who has been coaching girls’ basketball at VHS for four years, said, “This year’s team is the best I’ve ever had. I’ve never been as sorry to see a season end as I was this year.” The junior variety team also had an out- standing season with the best record in the history of Valpo Girls’ J.V. Basketball: 13 wins — 1 loss. The team also won the Valpo Girls’ J.V. Tournament, defeating Chesterton and LaPorte by a wide mar- gin. Lisa Glenn was the high scorer with 100 points. Glenn and Valerie Breen tied for leading rebounder with 70 apiece. Carol Roberts lead the freethrows with 68.7% and Whitney Gingerich led in as- sists with 19.

This creates an added ad- vantage going into a game and an added disadvantage for the opponent. Not only were the Vikes psychologically prepared for each meet, but also phys- ically. Every day they worked out with weights, conditioning drills, and wrestling moves to improve their skills. Their efforts proved themselves in the meet against the tough LaPorte grapplers, in which they upset the slicers 38-12. Out of thirteen weight classes rang ing from 98 pounds to 200 pounds, this year ' s Viking team had no weak weight classes and had a good standing in dual meets. The J.V. team, posing a record of 15-0, had an outstanding season. Along with Senior Captain Dave Far- row, Mike Bartelmo, Kevin Leffew, Steve Ikeda, Del Pittman, and Jim Clarke helped the Vikes take second in the sec- tionals. Bartelmo was the only man to advance further in competition where he placed fourth in Semi-State. Showing true team spirit, juniors Kevin Leffew and Chris Miller cheer their teammate on to victory.

The Boys’ Swim Team, too, had to encounter these hardships of long hours and tremendous pressure. However, as a result of this dedication the Vikes succeeded in producing Valpo’s best swim team ever. This year’s team showed its talent in many ways, including its outstanding dual meet record of 18-2. Another feature was its first place winnings in conference and sectionals, along with a respectable sev- enth place In the state finals. Coach Skip Bird felt there was nothing physically or mentally unstable about his team at state, but he did feel that there were more prominent swimmers visiting the state competition at Ball State University this year than in the past. The Vikes sent fifteen swimmers to state, and they returned with nine medals. Senior Nathan Bretcher, who received first place in the 200 I.M., captured three medals. Craig McCarron, also a senior, broke the state record in prelims which he set last year, only to be outtouched in the finals by Phil Seaman of Crown Point. “Never in Valpo’s history has the swim team ever had this kind of a team,’’ re- marked Sectional Coach of the Year Skip Bird. “We had a wide variety of outstand- ing swimmers along with those who had depth and were versatile enough to swim many events.” Through a positive attitude and an ag- gressive nature, the tankers focused from the beginning on being proclaimed state champions, and trained for their individual events. This team not only set a promi- nent place in the history of VHS, but also Brett Benedict, Todd Bickel, Craig McCarron, Bill Thomas, Mark Mavity, John Schmucker, and Roger Runk were awarded All-Conference. utilizing his training in psychocybernetics, sophomore Brett Benedict mentally pictures the future race in his mind. In order to help senior Mark Mavity fully pre- pare for his event, freshman Matthew Bretscher gives him a rub down. Boys’ Swimming — 99 100 — Practice, dedication produce state-bound gymnasts In almost every sport, the adage ‘‘prac- tice makes perfect” will always hold true. All the athletic stars written about today tell of the six-hour summer practice ses- sions, the countless miles run in the dead of winter, and the seemingly endless drone of the alarm clock signaling 5 a.m., and the beginning of a new training day. In the same breath, however, athletes relate their story-book achievements and timeless victories. Everyone of them would tell you the hard work and grueling practice sessions paid off. “Believe me, kid,” they’d say. “Practice does make perfect”. Right along with all of these superstars ranked the 1980 Girls’ Gymnastics Team. For the girls on this squad, a commitment of almost-total devotion was required for overall success. This type of attitude real- ly worked, for the group finished the regu- lar season with a record of 11-0 (interme- diate level) and 9-2 (optional level). Practices for the team began in early October, more than six weeks before their first meet. Three hours each day during the week, along with more than four hours on Saturdays were devoted to practicing. Pleased with her squad’s practice methods. Coach Lorie Walker empha- sized another vital point — teamwork. “I always tried to stress the team score over the many individual performances,” she elaborated. Leading the team were returning sen- iors Alison Howard, Pam Harbold, and Jamie Dutcher, along with juniors Debbie Brady and Mickey Mannel, and sopho- more Nancy Howard. In the State finals, freshman Andi Ferngren captured first- place honors in the uneven bars competi- tion.

Just like the ‘54 Giants, the ‘80 Viking Varsity Baseball team made an astounding turna- bout. These hard-fighting boys who early in the season were 7-8, successfully raised it to 18-10. Through the excellent pitching defense provided by seniors Mike Duncan and Tom Heron, and junior Kurt Gesse, the Vikes were able to improve their DAC re- cord. This year the team finished 5-7 in the conference, sharing a three-way tie for 3rd place, compared to their 1979 record of 1-11. Credited with picking 16 runners off first base this season, Mike Duncan had a 6-2 record and a 1.41 ERA. Kurt Gesse had a 1.95 ETA and a 3-5 record, with four of the losses to conference foes. Coaches Pat Murphy and Biff Geiss said the speed and defense of the well- trained group was supplemented with the added advantage of three strong hitters. Duncan was at the top with a .400 batting average, followed by the powerhouses of juniors Rob Harden and Kurt Gesse, and senior Dan Skinner. Harden also had a perfect fielding aver age of 1000. Mike Duncan was named the Most Valuable Player, while Kurt Gesse was se- lected the best offensive player, and sen- ior Brian Wikle was the best defensive player on the 1980 team. studying a pitcher’s form is one of the most important aspects of base stealing.

Baseball — 103 Pride, self-satisfaction, team spirit bring succesful record PRIDE (prid) n. 1. Dignity and self-re- spect. 2. Satisfaction in something done. 3. A person or thing in which pride is taken. Webster’s definition gives a clear-cut reason why this year’s Boys’ Track Team had a much improved 10-4 season re- cord. and for the first time in eight years placed second in the Duneland Confer- ence. In addition to the team and individual pride which enabled each man to perform at his very best, Coach Sam Rasmussen felt the team had more depth, especially in the running events. This year’s team also had six pole vaulters who qualified for sectionals at 1 1 ft. 6 in. The team’s never-dying desire to im- prove aided the hard-working Vikes to overcome some of their powerful oppo- nents including Merrillville and LaPorte and also to send at least one person in each event to sectionals. Senior Craig McCarron advanced to re- gionals in the shot put, while his team- mate Conrad West completed in the pole vault, and junior Chris Daly ran in the 800 and 1600 meter runs. Senior Jeff Corsbie was named 1980 season’s Most Valuable Player, while sen- ior Ron Mueller received the Mental Atti- tude and Spirit Award. Other end-of-sea- son awards were: Chris Daly, Top Runner; Craig McCarron, Top Field Event Man; and Jim Meyers, Most Improved. In addition to the track team’s regular outdoor season, it participated in indoor competition which began in February. In this controlled atmosphere, the team compiled a 6-1 record competing with pri- marily non-conference teams in north- west Indiana and northeast Illinois. Jumping to a height of 6 ft. 1 inch, Daryle Keller is able to clear the bar safely. Extending his body to gain the most distance, sophomore Rick Cornman leaps to 20 ft. 3 in., his season best. Sprinting ahead of Portage’s Doug Collins, sophomore Bart Polizatto gets a good start in the two mile run. 104 — Boys’ Track INDOOR SEASON OPP VHS Munster 38 68 T.F.

Sophomore Erin Doelling, Regional qualifier in the 400 meter dash, approaches the tape dur- ing a practice session. Togetherness, unity rescue season It’s a welcome change from the dog- eat-dog world of grueling sports competi- tion when a team like the VHS Girls’ T rack squad rises up from the crowd. Unlike most teams, they were out there for the enjoyment of the sport, not necessarily to break any records. Head Coach Willa Detwiler epitomized the feelings of the team members when she said, “We set goals for individual points, not necessarily wins.” That kind of spirited attitude pre- vailed all year. What impressed Coach Detwiler most about her girls was their enthusiasm and general willingness to work. Despite their season record (2-6 overall, 2-4 confer- ence), the girls displayed a sense of unity not always prevalent in athletics. Right along with the improvement of a running time in the mile were the developments of many new friendships and the feelings of comraderie among team members. Among the standouts on the squad was 1980 State Discus Champion senior Debbie Snider. Debbie, who was also Conference and Sectional Champion in the discus and shot put, heaved the dis- cus 148’9” at the IHSAA girls’ state track meet, topping her regional record of 131’5”. She placed third in shot put in both Regional and State competition. One of only three seniors on the roster, Debbie was as much a spiritual team leader as a team points leader. Along with Debbie, senior Ellie Sachs captured a new mark in the mile, shatter- ing the old 1600 meter record by a sizea- ble margin. Millie Marshall, also a senior, placed third in the shot put at Sectionals, and fourth at the Regional championship. With virtually the whole team returning for next year’s season, the future looks bright for Willa Detwiler. Even as this year drew to a close, the girls were looking ahead to next year’s surprises. And, ac- cording to their coach, with a little luck, the same enthusiasm found in the 1980 season will once again prevail. GIRLS’ TRACK VHS OPP Hobart 46 59 M.C.

I Key to winning is more than a stroke of tuck When a manager scouts players for a winning major league baseball team he looks for those with two essentials — quality and depth. Similarly, these win- ning elements were found in the Boys’ Golf Team which compiled a 15-1 record in addition to the Duneland Conference and sectional titles. Coach Bob Cain attributed the success of this year’s team to the fact that more team members played well than ever be- fore. He explained, “Ordinarily, most teams have 2 or 3 strong players, but this team had 6 players who performed at almost the same caliber.” The Vikes’ only defeat of the season was a two stroke loss to LaPorte on the Slicers’ home course. VHS beat LaPorte, however, earlier in the season at Forest Park, and also in the sectional match. Senior members Jim Becker, Greg Chrustowski, Brian Beach, and Tim McFadden led the team into victory, tak- ing the crown at the Sherwood Invita- tional, and placing second at the Rensse- laer Invitational. Low 9 and 18 hole trophy holder Jim Becker was selected Most Valuable Varsi- ty Player and qualified for Semi-State. Freshman Kevin Kozlowski was Most Valuable Junior Varsity Player. Coach Cain said that he expects next year’s team to be strong with returning letterman Mark Marencik, and a strong back-up of sophomores and juniors. Sandtraps are one of the hazards in golf, but senior Jim Becker’s skill allows him to proceed without severe problems. After beating the LaPorte team in their first encounter with the Slicers this season, the Vi- king golfers settle down to enjoy a snack pro- vided by the Pep Club. 108 — Boys’ Golf BOYS’ GOLF M.C.

Yet, what most people don’t think about are the hard- ships endured by spring sports squads, like the VHS Girls’ Tennis Teams. These girls must consider the weather, right along with LaPorte and Merrillville, as an- other one of their difficult opponents. One look at both JV and Varsity re- cords, however, will convince anyone that these teams conquered the elements quite well. Varsity Tennis, under Coach Steve Doak, finished the schedule with 13 wins and 2 losses, accompanied by a 5-1 conference mark. Among the most im- pressive victories was a first-place finish in the Logansport Single s Invitational Tournament. Judy Lebryk’s Junior Varsity was heralded as being the first undefeat- ed JV squad at Valpo High, ending the season at 8-0. To both coaches, it seemed as if count- less practices and meets were cancelled or postponed due to spring’s scourge of inclement weather. Said Coach Lebryk, “We never thought we’d get any practice in due to such lousy weather.’’ Through- out the year, unseasonably cool tempera- tures and days of steady precipitation (in- cluding snow in late April) took its toll on the tennis season. Despite their problems, the squads did have their standouts. Cn the Varsity, who Coach Doak remarked possessed an “excellent all-around attitude’’, freshman Lisa Shideler picked up MVP honors, while junior Cindy Hickey ended the year with best record, 18-5. Senior Co-Cap- tains Pam Harbold and Lori Lethen re- ceived Most Improved and Sportsman- ship awards , respectively.

An important part of every home basketball event, the VHS Pep Band, here led by Jim Brat- sakis, belts out a tune before the game begins. VHS spirit ieads athietes to victory In countless sport situations, the spirit of the crowd, the band, and the cheer- leaders plays a vital role. The frenzied ac- tions of the cheering fans help propel a basketball team towards a come-from- behind victory, and a rousing number from the Pep Band during a contest can be the catalyst for a successful game. During the past year, the VHS Spirit leaders exercised their talents and abili- ties in a very positive way. In many games that have gone down to the wire, it’s the leadership of the spiriters that boosts the morale of the spectators as well as the athletes. It’s an advantage that can’t be overlooked. The Viking Cheerleaders, a basic ingre- dient for any spirited group, came through well for their coach and coordina- tor, Sue Hoffman. A surprising amount of after-school and late-evening practicing was employed to perfect the somewhat intricate gymnastic routines. As has been the tradition at VHS for the past few years, male “stunt partners’’ for the JV and Varsity squads were used as aids to the girls. However, they were not simply for physical strength; they reinforced the energy put out by their female counter- parts. Cheerleaders were not the only ingredi- ent for a successful spirit blend, however. Alongside them were the half-time high- lights, the Vikettes, and the highly spirited VHS Pep Band. The Vikettes specialized in half-time entertainment, while the Pep Band continuously had a hand in sparking the crowd to life. At the reins of the Vi- kettes was Willa Detwiler; leading the Pep Band was Dan Pritchett. VIKETTES — Front Row: Heidi Hunsberger, Jill Martin, Anne Hoehner, Mickey Mannel.

Doane As time passes, administration at VHS takes on a new look At the turn of the century there were many changes. Henry Ford developed the car, Teddy Roosevelt became president, and the U.S. was no longer isolated from the rest of the world. Changes were also a part of life at Valparaiso High School as we entered the new decade of the 1980’s. The most important change was the new assistant vice-principal, Mr. Robert Sutton. Mr. Sutton brought ten years of teaching experience to Valpo and re- placed Mr. James McMichael who moved to counseling. Mr. Sutton’s job consisted mainly of taking care of attendance prob- lems for juniors and seniors, and oversee- ing non-sporting, extracurricular activi- ties. Another change from last year was in the attendance policy. Personal leaves were eliminated for sophomores and ju- niors, but the seniors were allowed leave days to visit colleges or to look for pro- spective jobs. Principal Garth Johnson also instituted a new program by issuing identification cards. The cards were used to show proof that a person goes to VHS, and were checked for dances and early work re- lease for seniors. Other schools in the area are also experimenting with ID cards and if enough uses are found, the cards may be used in the future at VHS. In charge of all athletics, Mr. C.J. Doane was involved with buying new uni- forms chosen for two or three different sports each year. Basketball uniforms are chosen annually and the old ones are passed down to the junior highs. Supply- ing the money for athletics are the rev- enues from boys’ football and basketball. In addition to his duties as athletic direc- tor, Mr. Doane was in charge of building furnishings and the school bookstore.

Administration — 117 Consultation and coordination add to counselors’ guidance functions There is life beyond high school, and to help students prepare for it the Guidance Department operated on three basic rules: counseling, consultation, and co- ordination. Beginning before school starts, the guidance counselors are devoted to help- ing students with scheduling career and college plans. They begin with the sopho- more ciass by advising individuais and groups of students on career choices and planning majors. Also busy with deficien- cy reports and SAT scores, the counsel- ors finish the first semester with the senior class dealing with college, financial aid, and scholarship applications. Coordinating students and classes for the upcoming year is the objective of the second semester. According to Guidance Director Don Dick, every twenty minutes a student walks into a counselor’s office to plan the following year’s schedule. This year, some students may have found themselves with a new guidance counselor. Mr. James McMichael, former- ly vice principal, transferred to the Guid- ance Department to take over the vacant position of Mrs. Tomes. Another addition is Mrs. Edie Gee, school registrar. She is in charge of all the legal papers concerning students such as transcripts and release forms. Mr. Don Dick guidance counselor i CAFETERIA STAFF — Front Row: Kay Troman, Sally Stewart.

Cross country hitch-hiking journeys are “sole” adventure For some the ideal vacation may be a few weeks basking in the tropi- cal sun or a month in Europe visiting historical cities, but for Mr. Jerry Hager a dream vacation is a fifteen day hitchhiking trip in the U.S. Having been interested in the concept of hitchhiking trips for a long time, Mr. Hager began his now favorite pasttime by hiking to Wash- ington D.C. for the Bicentennial celebration. Since then he has en- joyed a hike every summer. Traveling lightly with only a cou- ple pairs of jeans, c ut-offs, tennis shoes, some canned goods and several books to read between rides, Mr. Hager usually leaves Val- paraiso for his destination in July because the weather is warmer, and the Fourth of July traffic works to his advantage. As far as advice to novice hitch- hikers, Mr. Hager suggests having a Packing lightly with only a few food ra- tions and a change of clothes in his backpack, Mr. Jerry Hager begins his cross-country excursion. general like for people, traveling lightly, having a goal mapped out, and carrying a sign or wearing a t- shirt with the destination printed on it. “There are all sorts of people who pick up hitchhikers and I’ve never run into any problems with m.y dri- vers: so it kind of reassures my faith in mankind,” he explained. He also stated that hitchhiking might not be for everyone because anything could happen and you have to be prepared for the unexpected. 121 During the firet few weeks of school, new faculty members met with Principal Garth Johnson to learn the school policies at VHS. Recent additions to the staff include Mrs. Pam Bell, Miss Ruth Wil- liamson, Mr. Max Edington, Mr. Lester Snyder and Mr. Mark Preston. 1979 college grads return to school to take on a new role Each year the high schools face a great turnover. Seniors graduate and freshman come up from the ju- nior highs to fill the classroom. The teaching staff also changes over the years, and this year’s new teachers at VHS brought extra youth to the faculty. In fact, all the new faculty members were 1979 college gradu- ates with VHS as their first full-time teaching assignments. A part of being a new teacher was the difficulty of preparing for each class. One teacher estimated that four hours was spent each night preparing for the next day because a new teacher has no notes from previous lectures, or tests already prepared. Determining how much informa- tion students can handle is another problem each teacher faced. Most were used to the faster paced level of college courses and had to slow down to the high school level. Ac- cording to the first-year staffers, this year is noted to be the hardest, and they had to experiment to find a teaching technique that worked best. All of the new teachers compli- Discovering that individual teaching is as important as class lectures, new busi- ness teacher Miss Ruth Williamson as- sists juniors Bob Jones and Ed Kolar. mented the student body at VHS for an overall positive attitude and were grateful to the faculty and adminis- tration for their help in adjusting. This year’s new full-time faculty members were: Pam Bell, social studies; Max Edington, science; Mark Preston, industrial arts; Lester Snyder, science and math; and Ruth Williamson, business. Apart from the problem of getting adjusted to the Valpo area, the new faculty members agreed that they were fortunate to have the facilities VHS offers.

New reference book collections for students given as memorial A new collection of reference books has been added to the VHS Learning Center with the help of government funding and a donation from VHS English teacher Jean Heckman and brother, Mr. Bruce Stevens, in her parent ' s memory. Mrs. Heckman explained, “My parents believed strongly in the im- portance of a good education and the appreciation for literature: there- fore, we chose the Learning Center as a memorial.” The donation was the first of its kind for the Learning Center. Topics of the books include bioethics, photography, contempo- rary artists and biographies of musi- cians. According to Learning Center Di- rector Dean Gerber, selection of all materials was made primarily through an inventory of students’ needs. Suggestions from the Lake County Public Library were also used to aid in the selection of the books. During Parent Night held on Octo- ber 18, the books were on public display for parents.

Yet when May 28, 1980 finally arrived, despite all previous complaints of homework, tests, and teachers, tears were shed by many of the 427 graduating seniors. As graduation grew nearer, seniors reflected on both the bad and good memories of their three years at VHS. Memories of a particularly exciting _ football game or a great party raced through their minds, as did thoughts of a particularly dull class or difficult exam. Graduation night found many sen- iors torn between feelings of the future and those of the past. The graduation class of 1980 carried memories of a sophomore year in which their school was in partial ruins as a result of a fire set by an unknown arsonist. Many stu- dents remembered their attempts to raise money for prom during their ju- nior year. Senior year brought memo- ries of a winning boys’ swim team that sent seven members to state. Also sig- nificant was a varsity basketball team that made it to semi-state, only to lose by two points in triple overtime. Although memories of their previous years at VHS encompassed seniors, they also carried feelings of relief. Along with new feelings of freedom, many of the graduates felt anxious to- ward their future. Whether the end of high school meant entering the work field, going to college, or pursuing a military career, most agreed that they were stepping into a new life. — Jackie Mathieu James C.

People wore buttons pro- moting their favorite candidate. The candidates themselves slung the tradi- tional mud, and gave away everything from candy to eggs to win votes. Valparaiso High School’s Student Government Day election, which was held March 5 after two days of cam- paigning, aroused much interest among seniors, more so than the tradi- tional Student Council and Class Offi- cer elections. “More people were seri- ous about the Student Government Day election because it is a day out of school, while Student Council is work, " said VHS Senior Pam Tucker. The day out of school came March 13 when winners of the election spent a day in city and county government with the actual officials. Student Government Day has been a VHS tradition since 1976 when Gov- ernment teachers Martin Miller and Patrick Murphy put the Green and White Parties head to head for the first time. “The kids get very enthusiastic about it. I think a lot of it is because of the competition,” Miller explained. “In the American system, an election is the epitome of competition.” The catchy slogans of the campaign signs which were posted primarily on stairway walls and around the cafeteria attracted several readers. For example, one sign hung by suc- cessful White Party Council candidate Tim McFadden read, “Don’t be a fool. Help me get a day off school.” Another, used by the Green Party Mayoral candidate, Randy Fleenor, asked. “Tired of the crisis in Iran?” Yet another, posted by Scott Morri- son, the unsuccessful Green Party candidate for Judge, kiddingly charged the opposition with a mortal sin among VHS students: “Furlin loves disco.” In addition to signs, several other campaigning techniques were em- ployed by candidates. White Party Fire Chief candidate Lori Lethen, who eventually won the position, wore a fir- efighter’s helmet to classes. Several candidates handed out support but- tons, candy, or gum. Unsuccessful White Party candidate Craig McCarron passed out hard boiled eggs with his name written on them. Regardless of which campaign tech- niques were used, the candidates con- stantly made reference to their party affiliation. Because students were involuntarily assigned to either the Green or White party, Murphy did not believe that a person’s vote would be influenced by his or her party. He expained, “It’s pretty much of a popularity contest, and you’re not going to get someone to vote straight party just because they’re in the White or Green Party.” Nevertheless, many students be- came heavily involved in their party and quite a rivalry developed. The morning before the election. Miller found the desks in his classroom decorated with pieces of cloth, each with “Vote White” inscribed on it. Jeff Furlin, the victorious White Party candidate for Judge, had his own opin- ion. He kiddingly charged that his op- ponent, Scott Morrison, and the rest of the Green Party ran “a radical, smut campaign.” The enthusiasm of the candidates apparently rubbed off on the voters. Wearing buttons, hats, and T-shirts supporting their party or favorite candi- date, members of the senior class swarmed to the polls throughout the day. Murphy estimated a voter turnout of about 90%. Miller was pleased not only with the voting turnout, but with the entire elec- tion. “I have no complaints. It went off very well. It was probably the best of any we ever had.” Scott Cottos 130 — Seniors ieniors Deborah J. Downing — pep club 2: v-teens 2, 3; exch. club 3, 4; quest 2, 3: vikettes 3, 4; gymnastics 2.

On VHS’ 4.0 scale. Jean Carlson posted a 4.352 to receive the Valedic- torian title, while John Schmucker’s 4.314 earned him the honor of Saluta- torian. In this year’s 427 member sen- ior class, 21 students ranked a 4.0 or better. Jean, who was co-captain of her swim team, also participated in track and belonged to the Foreign Exchange Club. Student Council, Student Faculty Senate, FCA, and was part of the Math Team. She also was selected to the National Honor Society in her junior year. Planning to attend Massachu- setts Institute of Technology (MIT) to study Engineering and Math, Jean at- tended three hours of classes at V.U. during her senior year, and tutored math and chemistry after school. John Schmucker will attend Cornell University to major in Chemical Engi- neering and Business. Also a National Honor Society member, John was vice-president of Student Faculty Sen- ate, and swam for the boys’ varsity swim team. In addition to school-spon- sored activities, John was involved in horseback riding, running, a soccer league, and visiting with friends. Not the sterotyped bookworms, John and Jean admitted that studying was not a major part of high school life. Both students explained that despite their apparent success and enthusi- asm at VHS, they are looking forward to the challenge of college. Rounding out the top ten are: Karen Anderson, 4.287; Millie Marshall, 4.275; Mary Dupes, 4.256; Bill Luecke, 4.250; Sandra Washek, 4.242; Mark Mavity, 4.242; Connie Hans, 4.223; Carolyn Seeber, 4.213. — Brian Wikle Senior — 135 Seniori Ingenuity, finesse cover goof-ups Remember the wise, old owl? Peo- ple equate age with wisdom. When ap- plied to VMS seniors, this was generally the case since seniors were the oldest members of the student body. Howev- er, there were exceptions to this " wis- dom code.” For instance, take the senior that walked into the wrong homeroom after attending the same homeroom for two years. Or, after two years experience in reading school schedules, the senior that found hmself in the wrong English class at the beginning of the nine weeks. Seniors who made these embarrass- ing boo-boos usually felt they had to prove themselves again to the juniors, and especially to the sophomores. Al- though these embarrassing incidents were usually few-and-far-between, al- most all seniors experienced them in some form or another. Experience gave the senior perfec- tion of specific methods and tech- niques. For example, the average VHS senior had the timing of the mailing of deficiency reports down to a science. It meant quietly getting up early on Sat- urday morning and deftly plucking the report from the mailbox before Mom or Dad. Another technique perfected by seniors to save their necks was “report card adjusting.” An elite typewriter, copy machine, or typing eraser and a No. 2 pencil worked effectively to bring grades up to parents’ expectations. Seasoned veterans of Valparaiso High School’s faculty and policies, the twelfth graders used this experience and information to their advantage. Since each VHS student was allowed to select his classes and the instructor, seniors were more easily able to select a teacher who would be most compati- ble with their needs. If, for example, a specific teacher was noted for his long, involved, and often boring lectures, a senior could opt for the instructor who seldom lectured and merely assigned daily reading to be done during class time while the instructor left the room. Seniors also had those faculty mem- bers categorized who gave multiple choice and True-False tests, as op- posed to the infamous and dreaded open-ended question and essay exam. Regarding the attendance policy, the seniors learned to make wise use of their allotted “College Days” and in- school absences. Also, regardless of whether one wore glasses, contacts, or braces, the orthodontist and optomet- ric appointments made handy excuses for a needed absence. — Eric Charon and Pam Tucker Fulfilling a raquiremant for Literstura claaa, Jon Brockopp and Halan Kirachar parform a akit.

Plague strikes class of ’80 Senioritis: It hovered over VMS like a cloud of radioactive energy and affli- cated seniors. Senioritis struck every senior in early September and pro- ceeded to infect their minds and bo- dies until graduation May 28. During that period of approximately nine months, normal students turned into pushy, proud, and boisterous teen- agers. Although senioritis plagued the class of ’80, seniors still had the responsibil- ity to assume the take-charge role. Be- cause of their position, seniors had control of life at VHS. Usually the best tables in the cafeteria were filled with seniors who felt it was their right. Although seniors controlled much of the academic life by setting standards, they were also an example for others to follow. Seniors provided needed leadership in clubs and organizations. Officer positions were usually sought by seniors who could bring experience and added knowledge to help VHS or- ganizations function more smoothly. The fashion conscious atmosphere was dictated by the senior girls whose fashions were admired and patterned by the sophomore and junior girls. Young and upcoming athletes turned to the upperclassmen to guide them and break them in on the basics of high school sports. While trying to make sure every needed class had been taken, seniors anxiously awaited college and other post-high school programs. Seniors usually carried a heavy load trying to prepare themselves of a college or technical school. With their two years experience, most seniors had an ad- ded poise and stability. — Brian Wikie Senior — Kimberly Lynn Peterson — choir 4. Doreen Ann Piper — Quest 2. Shawn Pitts. Jeffery Platt.

Seniors — 141 Merit semi-finalists — motivated by money In the big business of selling cars, car companies use rebates as an ad- ded incentive to boost profits and to give the car buyers a reward for buying their product. Just as car companies give awards to their purchasers, high National Merit exam scores enabled students to receive monetary awards. VHS semi-finalists this year were James Brady. Martha Galow, Dave Hanna, Steve Ku, Bill Luecke and Millie Marshall. Martha Galow received an annual scholarship from Drake University while Millie Marshall received a similar scholarship from Indiana University. Bill Luecke received an $1,000 Stauffer Chemical Company scholar- ship. and Dave Hanna received an In- land Steel-Ryerson Merit Scholarship which is renewable for four years. Since its establishment 24 years ago, the Merit Program has awarded $161 million in scholarships to more than 58,000 students. Attitude of students’ families toward educational achievement, the commu- nity’s support for its schools, and the standards and objectives of the high school influenced the number of semi- finalists from each school. Other factors which had an impact on the number of semi-finalists includ- ed the size of the school, the percent that enter and graduate from college, and the educational level of adults in the community. The $1,000 scholarships were awarded on the basis of academic re- cords, extracurricular accomplish- ments, test scores, and leadership. — Pam Tucker Ulla Karin Sjobeck — Intramurals 4: Exch Club 4; Exchange Student from Sweden.

The oldest is counting the days until he can break away from the family, and the middle child feels he is too old to have the ‘‘younger child’s attention”, yet not old enough to have freedon. Juniors, like a middle child, are placed between the sophomores who are glad to finally be in high school and the seniors who are eagerly awaiting college. During their junior year, students are usually con- cerned with college entrance tests, find- ing jobs, and weekends. This year’s juniors were involved in the annual prom preparations. They held a class workday, spring car wash, and sev- eral bake sales as ways of collecting mon- ey.

and an energetic pupil who looks forward to class rings, football games, and dances. At the beginning of the year sopho- mores had to become familiar with their new surroundings and new people. An- other new adjustment was the classes which broke away from the ordinary grind of reading, writing, and arithmetic. Clubs were open to new members, and underclassmen had to decide which ones they would enjoy the most. Foreign Ex- change Club, FCA, Pep Club, YARC, V- Teens, and Drama Club were just a few of the wide variety offered. Also whether they were a spectator or a participant, most sophomores took part in at least one sport.
