orth Central Association Evaluates VCHS
Local steering committee planned a welcoming dinner for directors, guests, and faculty before North Central Evaluation.
Every seven years VCHS is
evaluated by the North Central
Association. This year the prepa-
rations for the evaluation on
November 16, 17, and I8 were
headed by the steering committee,
which consisted of Miss Barr,
Chairman, Mr. Wells, Consult-
ant, Mr. Grinnell, Mr. Mills,
Mrs. Mortland, and Mr. Provin-
zano. Everyone from the superin-
tendent to the janitors worked
long, hard hours to present the
school at its best to the evalua-
tors. The classrooms were re-
painted with bright, cheery colors
to reflect the atmosphere ofthe
school and its occupants.
The evaluators studied their
assigned areas in the curriculum.
After their evaluations, they made
detailed reports based on their
observations. Not to the surprise
of any VCHS passed the rigid
evaluation with flying colors.
Academic textbooks are keys to the instruction in our main building

dents. They are able to do inde-
pendent research on nearly any
subject with the excellent books,
pamphlets, periodicals, and refer-
ence material available.
The seminar room is used ex-
tensively by seniors preparing
term papers. Many hours of en-
joyable reading are also provided
by the library.
Counseling is a unique experi-
ence for V.C.H.S. students. Var-
ious tests, which are given by the
guidance office prove valuable to
many students for college prepa-
ration. Our qualified counselors,

During the year practical units
of study included nutrition, food
preparation, and serving skills.
Students in food services learned
quantity food preparation as
well as budget management.
Another phase included health,
first aid, and clothing construc-
tion. These courses prepared
students for jobs in the business
world as a career woman and in
a home as a housewife.
Under the instruction of three
qualified math teachers, the
department offered Algebra l,
geometry, Algebra ll, and ad-
vanced math, Many students
enrolled in Algebra l. Those
who continued to geometry and

Biology Il students test their ability in extrasensory perception by trying to feel colors.
Dennis Hutchison discovered colors are easier to see than feel.
Each day students looked
forward to an hour of physical
activity to relieve the stresses of
studying. No serious accidents
occurred, but many complained
of bruises, floor burns, and
pulled muscles. When the weath-
er permitted, everyone enjoyed
softball, tennis, archery, and
field hockey. During the winter,
volleyball, basketball, and tram-
poline gymnastics were activities
conducted in the classes. Even
though some arguments arose
about which team played the
best, all students learned good
sportsmanship, followed the
rules of the game, and main-
tained physical fitness.
Biology I opened our eyes to
the many wonders of the plant
and animal world. Students in
this course learned to use a mi-
croscope and to dissect animals
such as frogs and crayfish. At
midterm students performed
individual study on anything
they wished pertaining to Biolo-
gy. The study of this life science
enabled one to gain a fuller un-
derstanding ofthe structures and
functions ofliving organisms.
Biology II is an introductory
course to human physiology.
During the year students studied
in depth the shark and rat
through dissection. In the spring
they prepared an oral term pa-
per on anything in life science.
Students who took Biology II
were well prepared for college
Chemistry I, a course offered to
sophomores, juniors, and seniors,

Special education was an aca-
demic and training program for
slow learners who took some reg-
ular classes, but could not adjust
to all the regular curriculum.
Their curriculum was based on
their previous experiences and
learning capacity. Students in
special education took such sub-
jects as pre-vocational informa-
tion, job orientation, English,
math, P.E. and driver's education.
The main objectives of this pro-
gram were to enable the students
to contribute to their environment
and to train students for employ-
ment in the business world. Thus
it was simplified, as well as indivi-
dualized in nature.

Accomplishment was the
word for the International
Thespian Society Troupe 245
this year. The members and
their sponsor, Mr. Oldfield,
worked diligently raising money
for a marquee and finally
reached their goal after many
years. They held a volleyball
tournament and an exciting
powder-puff football game. The
members also had fun present-
ing a Christmas program con-
sisting of short skits, singing
dogs, and teachers visiting Santa
Claus. In the spring the mem-
bers held a party for the new
members at the Vandalia Lake.
"Curtain Going Up" was a play in practice
Now the public really knows
what happens at play practices.
This year's comical play, "Cur-
tain Going Up," related the hap-
penings of Juniors performing
their first play at school. Both
mysterious and funny problems
occurred during practices.
All the cast members were
nervous opening night, but put on
a hilarious play. The second night
they were more calm and did a
beautiful job. Much experience

This year was a very active year
for the members of F.H.A. and
their sponsor, Mrs. Schupp. Dur-
ing the summer and early fall the
girls got into the spirit of prepar-
ing for the North Central Evalua-
tion. They bought green curtains
and colorful furniture for the liv-
ing center. At football and basket-
ball games, these girls were busy
making and selling popcorn to the
hungry fans. ln March the
Banquet was held.
Under the superb leadership of
Mr. Grinnell, the F.F.A. mem-
bers not only learned many differ-
ent ideas of farming but also
promoted worthwhile school pro-
jects. They were constantly busy
at the concession stand during
games selling candy, hot dogs,
coke, and coffee. The annual chili
supper in February was a big suc-
cess. Then in March the members
prepared a delicious dinner for
their parents. During the evening
Mr. Grinnell presented awards
for outstanding work throughout
Moving and cleaning was a task
that the members of D.E. and
their sponsor, Mr. Finn, accom-
plished this year. The club moved
to the new vocational building
where better facitilites were pro-
vided. The halls were brightened
with advertisements in the display
cases which they changed once a
month. The displays were fur-
nished by various businesses in
the area. Learning new methods
of business helped the members
persuade the students to buy Tom
Watt articles, candy, wastebas-
kets, and Christmas candles.

enhanced thejoyful event. In the
annual spring concert, harmoni-
ous voices made it apparent that
spring had come.
Love of music was what made
the Boys' Chorus successful.
Twice a week the boys met dur-
ing homeroom and sang both
popular and classical songs.
Along with Special Chorus,
these boys made up the Mixed
Choir. On the spring tour to
Casey and Ramsey, four male
soloists entertained with num-
bers which included spirituals
and contemporary rock.

GAA officers of'7l-'72 began
preparing for the "GAA and
Ecology' workshop in the sum-
mer. Their work and fun did not
stop there. At Homecoming the
GAA float won second. A Big-
Sister-Little Sister initiation
party was held at Christmas.
Hobo Day, the coat check, and
the bake sale were the main
money-making projects ofthe
year. A picnic ended the year,
new officers were installed,
awards and trophies were pre-
sented, and all had to agree that
it was a year packed with sports-
manship and fun.
GAA officers stress physical fitness and good sportsmanship during initiation.

The enthusiasm, dedication,
and ability of our Varsity Cheer-
leaders brought about more
school spirit than VCHS had
seen since 1954 when the Vanda-
lia cagers last won a regional
trophy. Much ofthe talent ex-
hibited during the season was
acquired at the National Cheer-
leading Clinic held at ISU.
On Thursday evening of
Homecoming week, the Cheer-
leaders initiated a new event
which they hope will become a
tradition with VCHS -- an out-
side pep rally consisting of
cheers, speeches by coaches and
former athletes, and a grand fi-
nale with the student body par-
ticipating in a "snake dance."

which held no victories. Despite
the fact the team held a bad rec-

valuable experience for next
year. lt was very unusual in-

The VCHS Varsity Baseball
team started a rough season with
rough workouts in the gym.
Rough is the definition for this
season. Nothing seemed to go
right for the diamond men. When
the team scored, the opposition
scored more f when the pitcher
held the opponents the guys just
could not get their bats to rattle.
With a 5-9 record the varsity
team was lead by eight returning
lettermen and backed by good
juniors and sophomores. Coach
Leidner has high hopes for next
year's team. Bad weather, often
resulting in calling off badly need-
ed practices, plagued the team
throughout the season. Pitcher
Tim White was voted Most Valu-
able Player. Tim's records includ-
ed a batting average of 268, RBI
f- 12, pitching record 3-5, and an
ERA of 980.
