Build (bild) v. 1. To form by combining materials or parts to construct. 2. To give form to according to a definite plan or process; to fashion, mold, create. 3. To establish or strengthen. 4. To establish a basis for, found or ground: Schools set foundations to help stu- dents build for bigger and better tomorrows. Munster High School • 8808 Columbia Ave. • Munster, IN 46321 • Vol. 15 Although the regular routine didn ' t present any great problem and the month of September was warm, the construction posed a daily challenge for the students as they were forced to meet the ele- ments by walking outside to go between the North and South buildings. Depicting the saying that variety is the spice of life, these juniors enjoy their different, but none the less, enjoyable lunches. Participating in holiday skits during the halftime of basketball games is just one responsibility of Drill Team members. Juniors Adrienne Serna and Mau- reen Malady exhibit their talents as they wait for Santa Claus to bring their gift. Interested in expanding her knowledge of physics, junior Ellen Derrico makes sure she has correctly completed her reflection lab. Paving the way — here S ounds of air jack hammers cracking cement; bulldozers digging up the once familiar horseshoe, and workmen pounding away at steel beams and wooden planks echoed through the halls as September brought the start of school for 1570 students. With the ever-present annoyances of the rumbling machinery, the inevitable walk outside from the North to South building in the bitter cold, and the mass confusion caused by the relocation of classes, students were constantly re- minded of the remodeling going on throughout the building. With all the hassles, students began to wonder was all this necessary? From the beginning of time, societies felt the need to build bigger and better structures to expand their lives and meet growing de- mands. Whether it was the Egyptians ' slaves struggling to build the great pyra- mids, the Italians delicately designing their Tower of Pisa, or the Fanning- Howey construction workers pounding away at the Munster High, people could not stand still. But fancy new structures won ' t keep a society going. Moving and growing be- came a part of students ' lives as they laid the foundations for future accomplish- ments. From the junior ' s second succes- sive first place float award to the never before berth in the State finals for the football team, from the Girls ' Volleyball Marathon, which earned approximately $600, to the Chess Team ' s unprecen- deted 168 hours of continuous play, a Guiness World Book Record, students were constantly striving to achieve that which had never been obtained before. School administrators kept this quest alive. Dr. David Dick brought new ideas we come as he took over as principal in mid-No- vember. New courses; such as the Hu- manities class and Family Relations, gave students the opportunity to expand their knowledge. The School Board members also tried to improve the academic foun- dations, as they instituted a weighted grading system for determining the top academic students. While academic, athletic, and individ- ual building were not as visible as the construction itself, they were a part of everyday student life. Each paved the way for bigger and better tomorrows. While the horseshoe may never have been beau- tiful, it certainly never looked like this. During the school year, as the students looked for this old fa- miliar sight, their eyes met with a " vast, desert wasteland " along with an array of machinery. Displaying his ceramic talents, senior Jim Whitted builds his clay piece during his Arts Projects class. In second round sectional action, senior Kelly Fus- ner and junior Amy Heatherington aid their team ' s cause by rebounding their East Chicago Roosevelt opponent ' s shot. The Mustangs went on to win the game and advance to finals, losing there to High- land, 34-41. Helping to guide his class to their second succes- sive first place float victory, juniors Woody Colcla- sure, Mark Luberda, and Cary Peterson put last minute touches on the float before the parade begins. Indecisive between the red and the blue sneakers, junior Diana Marich tries to decide which one she will buy from sophomores Michelle Biesen and Robin Groff, while junior Mary Kaye Smith also ponders her purchase.

As the grinding of machinery and the gnashing of jackhammers reiterated through the dust-filled corridors, students scrambled to their classrooms. Students struggled to adapt to their new environment. A large portion of the horseshoe had been fenced off. A gravel path proved to be a nuisance when walking from the North to South buildings, and as the days grew colder, drafty halls and icy paths seemed to be the normal scene. Reconstruction of the school began on August 30, 1979 and was aimed to be completed by August 1981. The total cost of both the high school and the middle school was estimated at $6,483,940. Included in the renovation of the high school was the construction of the music, art, and journalism depart- ments; the remodeling of classrooms, the cafeteria, and the fieldhouse; and the construction of a new wing of offices and classrooms. Before we acquired these new sites, we had to witness gut- ted lecture halls and live through getting drenched during passing periods by rainstorms as the year passed. Hopefully after the inconveniences, it will be worthwhile. Stripped of all furnishings, the South Resource Center is to be the new Publications and Art Departments. Linking the Fieldhouse to the North Building was a temporary walkway. Students cross to quickly reach their next class to avoid the cold weather. Awkwardly scattered across the Commons floor, cherhistry students attempt to listen to Mr. Donald Ullman ' s lecture. Because of the juniors ' PSAT ' s and the construction, the Chemistry ' classes were pushed out of their rooms. In the midst of all the rubble and debris, a con- struction worker takes time out to survey his work. Uprooted benches indicated the beginning of re- construction in what was once the horseshoe and was soon to be new classrooms. if mi Hiking across a gravel path is part of the everyday routine of many students. Later on, the gravel path was paved for the students convenience in bad weather. Starting another day, freshman John Holzhall goes through the monotonous task of opening his locker and getting his books before class. During Study Hall, juniors Steve Martin and Lisa Mauer try to get unfinished homework done before they go to class. In order not to be late for class, junior Nina Swing rushes to get her hair combed during the hourly seven minute break. To break away from her volleyball game, freshman Karen DeCola practices her free throws in gym class. k Routine (roo ten ' ) n. 1. regular, customary, unvarying, or mechanical procedure. Routine was probably the first word that popped into one ' s head at approximately 6:48 every morning while his alarm clock signaled him to begin another day. From this point on, the format that most students ' schedules took was somewhat similar. Whether one had to walk, drive, or take a bus to school, he always ended up having to leave before he was ready. This routine of wakening was so familiar to a lot of people that they found themselves waking up early on Saturday morning and getting half way dressed before realizing that it was not a school day. The rest of the school day was usually filled with tests, lectures, reading assignments, and problem solving until 2:42 p.m. when everyone got to go home. That is unless they had an extra curricular activity to participate in such as play practice, ensembles, athletics, or a club activity. On the other hand, just because one went home after school didn ' t necessarily mean that they were breaking the routine. He usually depended upon having a few hours of homework to contend with once he left school. There were some ways, though, that students found to break the daily routine. Such activities ranged anywhere from school field trips and pep sessions to wild parties over the weekend nights. No matter what one did to break the routine, he could almost always count on having to fall right back into the same routine on Monday morning. All and all, it made even the strongest willed non- conformist think it might be true— if you can ' t beat ' em, join ' em! Purchasing milk during lunch, sophomore Pam After finishing her lunch consisting of a carton of Roberts and junior Rob Rudakas receive change in milk, junior Beth Morris takes time to study for a pennies since all beverages went up in price. test while junior Diane Crambo watches her finish. Candles, wine glasses, " real " silverware, and pine cones set the scene of a lunchtime birthday party for junior Creg Higgins, who enjoyed the little celebration given by his friend Bob Engle. Adding the finishing touches to his hamburger, freshman Drew Kaminski takes advantage of the ketchup and mustard provided at lunch. 6 Lunch As the dismissal bell rings, freshman Mike Bosnich, juniors Mladen Kralz and Steve Zeldenrust, and seniors 5lavko Bosnich and Tom Mueller quickly finish their lunches before heading to their next classes. One half hour oj escape As the bell rings, the average student is thankful that it ' s time for lunch since his stomach has been making noises since 10 o ' clock. Trying desparately to make his way through the hall crowds, he finally spies his destination, the cafeteria. Quickly putting his books down at his regular table, he digs for his money and heads up to one of the lunch lines. After waiting in line for about five minutes, he reaches the food, only to find that they ' re serving hamburgers and cheeseburgers again. So he grabs a bag of fries and a shake, pays the cashier, “id returns to his table for the same ■ " nutritious " mealthe third day in a row. Even though not all students enjoy the food that is served during the lunch hour, the majority still bring money for a hamburger, fries, and a shake instead of a bag lunch. But, since there are three different food lines, hot meals, ala Carte, and salad bar there is a variety of food from which to select from. Lunch is usually never boring. A loud round of applause from a corner in the cafeteria signifies that some poor, embarrassed student has dropped his whole tray of food on the floor. Tunes of " Happy Birthday " can drift across the air as a group of students quickly devour the birthday cake for the lucky person. Many organizations also set up bakesales where a wide range of goodies are sold in hopes of making a good profit. Carrying extra pennies around is also a must since the milk and other drink prices went up one cent. But as the dismissal bell rings, he gathers his books and heads to his next class after eating and spending time talking with friends. This mere half hour gave students a chance to break away from the study routine and gave them a chance to escape. Luruh 7 As the late afternoon rays of sun shine through the Common ' s windows at the end of the school day, juniors Ann Stepniewski and Debby Whitham and sophomore Candis Wojcik stop to talk for a while before they catch their ride home. Brrrinq. . . relief or so theu think It seemed as though that bell would never ring, but eventually it did and simultaneously a feeling of freedom overcame most students as they rushed to catch their ride home. However, escape was not so quick to come for many other students involved in extra-curricular activities. Even though they were stuck staying after school, many of the students felt that it wasn ' t so bad because they got to talk with a lot of their friends outside of the classroom. Also, one sophomore felt that working after school on debate helped to discipline her somewhat. Those who headed home after school probably all headed in the same general direction . . . the refrigerator, to either " pig out " or just to grab a few munchies to eat while watching their favorite television show. Whether one stayed after school, or went home after the bell they had the same thing in common eventually— homework. As sophomore Nancy Rzonca put it, " even though I ' m involved in Drama Club and Gymnastics, I still have time to get my homework done. I might have bags under my eyes the next day, but it gets done. " 8 After School While making up a missed lab after school, junior Julie Morfas keeps an eye on the rut ible to make sure that the chemical doesn ' t boil over. Behind her, sophomore David Bovacich waits patiently until he can record the results of the experiment. Preparing for an upcoming debate moot, juniors Mike Castellaneta and Paul Komyatte make sure their files are up to date on the issues, Alter ralrhlng a puss, junior Mark Molinaro runs With the ball during an after school football prat (lie, In order to go for a touchdown.

After School Weekends : at last l Some weekends students were so busy that they were exhausted by the time Sunday night rolled around. For example, the weekend of Homecoming was packed with things to do like the parade, the chicken barbeque, the game, and the dance. Also, the weekend of Prom was activity-packed. But what about those weekends when nothing " special " was going on? " Weekends were a time when I just relaxed and had a good time. It was a time for getting together with friends and really enjoying myself, " stated senior Barb Silverman. Many students used their free time on weekends to earn some money by getting a job at a local business. " I took advantage of my extra time on the weekends by working. I didn ' t really have time during the week, so, the weekend was my chance to make some money, " said senior Suzie Strater. Senior Sue Block explained, " I used my time on the weekend to do my homework, run errands I had to do, and catch up on my sleep. " Senior Lisa Lem laughlingly said, " I loved the weekends because I got to spend so much time with my boyfriend. Even though I usually saw him sometime during the week, our schedules differed so much that the weekend was the time we could really enjoy each other ' s company. " No matter what one did on the weekend, everyone seemed to agree: the weekend was the best time of the week. After enjoying their weekend evening out, senior Bill Gomez and freshman Laura Brauer order some munchies from Schoops. 12 Instead of going out on the weekend nights, junior Kelly Sweningston must take the customers ' orders as part of her job at McDonalds. Back in the kitchen at Schoop ' s Restaurant, junior Cindi Hasiak finds ladling soup part of her spare- time job. Toil , trouble . . . weekends Friday. Most students are smiling and making plans with anticipation for the weekend. It seems to hold some magic that changes people ' s blah moods at the beginning of the week to lively and cheery moods by Friday. But for some students, Friday is just the beginning of a long night of waiting on tables, serving customers, or carrying out people ' s groceries. Almost half of all the juniors and seniors were employed, and almost all of them had to work on the weekends. “I didn ' t mind it too much, as long as I didn ' t have to work both weekend nights, " explained junior Ellen Derrico. This seemed to be the feeling that most employed students had. " One night was bad enough, but working both nights ruined the weekend. " Having to work meant missing out on all the parties, fun dates, going out with friends, and football or basketball games. While friends were out living it up, some students were stuck in a hot, greasy kitchen making hamburgers or pizza. But if students complained so much about working on weekends, why did they get the job in the first place? There were many different reasons. The majority did it to earn money for college or extra spending money for themselves. Others went and applied for jobs because they felt they should be working since their friends were. Still others worked for their parents because they owned their own business and needed some extra help from their kids. But whatever the reason, every weekend brought complaints and negative feelings toward working on weekends. Preparing a deep dish pizza, senior Jim Walker works after school and on the weekends at Noble Romans making money to help cover future college expenses. As he prepares to put a lift on the heel of a boot, senior Mike Horvat makes extra money by working at Bradley ' s Shoe Repair. Working 13 ■ Dollars and sense Everyday purchases became a major decision once inflation had hit the local businesses. Prices soared due to the rise of the cost of living and made buyers beware. 14 Inflation. Cruisin ' the Boulevard, viewing the latest flicks such as " Kramer VS. Kramer " or " The )erk " or gorging your face at the local food joints like McDonalds or Noble Roman ' s became historical events due to. the effect that inflation had on students. High prices and slow business at the neighborhood franchises like Ward ' s and jewel caused students to receive less hours at their part-time jobs, and caused their entertainment expenses to be cut down to the bare minimum. " The idea of inflation is almost ironic. Due to the fact that because of high prices, I wanted more working hours to earn more money. However, because of slow business, my employer was forced to cut my hours, " explained senior Mary Norris. As movie prices soared high and gas prices passed $1.10 a gallon, money problems limited students ' entertainment to one night during the weekend. " With movies up to $4.00 a show and having to pay for my own gas, it made me think twice before I went out and spent my money, " junior Paula Opatera stated. Mr. Don Kernaghan, Economics teacher, further explained, " with the cost of living on an up swing, some states are now considering raising the driving age due to the high cost of gas prices and insurance coverage, especially for boys, to resolve the gas shortage. " In addition to the rising costs of entertainment, prices of everyday needs took a giant leap. Trying to buy the latest fashions put a hole in students ' pockets. Inflation caused the price of blue jeans to almost double in the last year, " just to be in fashion, you had to end up paying around $30 to $35 for designer jeans, " senior Allison Hirsch commented. Although students had a choice of what price category of clothing to choose from, students who ate at school had two choices: to bring his own lunch or be forced to pay a 10 cent increase for a hot lunch due to inflation. " I brought my own lunch to school mostly because of the kind of food served, but in the long run, it was a lot cheaper, " explained senior Melissa Pieters. As the dollar shrank and prices escalated, inflation made its mark on every high school student. Students found their precious few dollars could not keep up with their many needs. Having to double the price, junior Karen Corsiglia watches the gas pump to make sure she doesn ' t go over her $20 bill. Shocked by the price of a new outfit at a local clothing store, freshman Kris Bittner reconsiders her choice of a sweater. Inflation 15 Cohos trample disco No these " cohos " don ' t have fins or scales. The only thing they have in common is their insane love for rock ' n roll music. Coho is short for a member of the Insane Coho Lips Anti Disco Army. This groups parentage is that of a Chicago rock ' n roll radio station, WLUP 98 FM, and ' Loop ' disc jockey Steve Dahl. Over the summer the Loop had risen into a phenomenal success and continued this success mostly due to the addition of Dahl. This pudgy, bespeckled man had transformed Chicago and its suburbs into the rock capital of the nation. The radio station ' s popularity began with a strong campaign to wipe out disco music in order to make the world safe for rock ' n roll. Activities of this campaign included many memorable episodes such as the disco destruction night at the Pointe East Disco in Lynwood. The campaign reached a climax, however, when disco records were blown up in the center field of Chicago ' s White Sox Stadium. Many of the frenzied crowd charged out into the field and tore out bases and ripped up the field. Since these actions cancelled the second game of the double header, many national networks covered this turning point. From that point on disco became a dirty word for many and the ultimate insult was to own a Saturday Night Fever albumn. Subsequently, disco groups have fallen off the charts and disco record sales are at an all time low. Reaching their goal of wiping out disco, the radio station ' s format had switched to introducing the rock of the 80 ' s. And yes, Dahl is still with the crew at the Loop promoting rock ' n roll. This switch in formats brought about a barrage of satirical songs on topical themes with a local band " Teenage Radiation " who backed up the vocal talents of Dahl in songs such as " Skylab " , " Do you think I ' m disco " , and " Ayatollah " which were set to popular rock songs. Continuing in the tradition of serving the people, they established the " Breakfast Club " , a live broadcast held in Chicago on Friday morning at the Carnegy Theater. Many people stayed up throughout the night partying in preparation for this event to reach their potential in craziness. Admist this tremendous outreach of rock ' n roll, Dahl had crawled out from the rubble of White Sox Stadium and risen above the criticism of the media to become a hero for rock ' n roll rollers all across the nation. Dahl had become a focal point for the media as well. Network news and T.V. talk shows had all tried to determine this man ' s success in uniting youth in a common cause. Dahl is an integral part of many student ' s morning routines working the 6 to 10 a.m. shift along with his sidekick Gary Meyer. Dahl ' s sometimes bizarre sense of humor in combination with his remarkable wit helped many students cope with the early morning blahs by tickling their funny bones. How many " cohos " do you know? It ' s easy to spot a " coho " just look for a black T-shirt with " The Loop, where Chicago rocks " slapped prominently in white across their chests. Checking out the local stereo shops, senior Sue Hriso looks for a better sound system for her car. 16 Rock vs. Disco Being a member of the Insane Coho Lips, sophomore Steve Clark follows the loop radio station even into Auto Mechanics as he charges a battery. When selecting an album, it ' s often difficult to decide which one to choose. Senior Kim Geiger picks Tom Petty’s " Damn the Torpedoes " over Pink Floyd ' s " The Wall " . Contributing to the cause, an involved Coho readies his gear for the fight to stomp out disco. Rock vs. Disco 17 Active students hold up a sign to support their team and help raise enthusiasm and spirit during a pep session for the game against Highland that night. As the football players run out on the field, the cheerleaders lead a cheer for the team while the fans spell out Munster to display their school spirit. 18 Spirit W M Li r vf 1 ' While the toilet paper whips around in the wind, sophomores jane Rovai and Lori Dernulc hurriedly attempt to wrap up their team members ahead of their opponents during the Homecoming track and field day events. OK ULZ (Wl » Heto kind of competition " What ' s our Mustang battle cry? " " V-l-C-T-O-R-Y! " screamed the innocent freshman, boisterous sophomore, carefree junior and confident senior. This typical cheer heard at pep rallies, signified the constant class competition when it came to spirit. But this was only one of the many ways students showed spirit for their school. During Homecoming, a magical feeling enhanced everyone with spirit. Hippies and baseball players were seen walking the halls during Spirit Week, and almost everyone dressed in the traditional red and white on Friday. Signs were hung everywhere displaying the hope that Munster would beat Chicago Simeon in the " big " game. But besides homecoming spirit, other activities and organizations also chipped in their share of spirit. The Girl ' s Timing Organization (GTO) timed for the swimming, track, and wrestling teams and cheered them on to victory. During the games, half-times were loaded with yelling and clapping as Cheerleaders and Drill-Team performed routines and got the crowd caught amidst the spirit. Although the spirit seen most often at school was a total, unified effort supporting a team or event, the separate classes found themselves competing against each other, seeing who had the most spirit. Whether it was egging some other class ' s float at Homecoming, or trying to out-do each other when it came their turn to sponsor prom, class competition was evident. Pep rallies also brought balloons, toilet paper, and confetti streaming from the bleachers as the classes competed. Even though at times the students ' spirit seemed out of hand, the rowdie behavior helped improve the school atmosphere. Despite the commotion going on during Spirit Week, junior Tim McCarthy must still try to concentrate on his class assignments. As a Munster wrestler pins his opponent, senior Girl ' s Timing Organization members Kim Torok, Kathleen O ' Connel, Terri Long, and Kim Geiger yell and cheer with excitment for Munster, an important role of the organization. Spirit 19 First place winning float, Snoopy, lead by his creators, the Junior Class, enters into the church parking lot where the parade begins. As he gets the float underway, junior Woody Colclasure makes sure the chicken wire is on tightly before the flowers are tied on the junior float. I hadn ' t heard of Munster thus I decided tocheck it out Home here I was. World War I pilot, flying in the search of the Red Baron . . . Suddenly he was there! Diving right at me! As the Red Baron and I, Flying Ace Snoopy, began fighting with the zeal of two World War I fighters, I felt my plane jerk from a bad hit in the rear wing. My plane came whizzing down to the ground so fast that I was separated from my machine. At this point things got a bit blurry, but I remember landing in some mud in the middle of a high school. Not knowing where I was, I began searching and came upon a sign reading Munster High School. I hadn ' t heard of Munster, so I decided to investigate. I kept my senses keen at all times so that the Red Baron wouldn ' t catch me off my guard. Cautiously, I peeked in some of the windows, and I saw kids dressed up in different sports uniforms. Throughout the rest of the week, the kids came dressed in other outfits. There was a hat and sock day, a hippy day, a red and white day, and a jean and jersey day. Thinking this peculiar, I lurked around eavesdropping, and I found out that this was called " Spirit Week " . The students seemed to be preparing for a big event and since I was unable at that time to locate either my plane or the Red Baron, I decided to do some more spying around to find out exactly what was happening. On Thursday night, I followed a group of kids and observed them putting together a strange looking object, which I later learned they called a float. Some of the people stayed awake all night long working on this odd contraption. The following morning I noticed that many of the students walked around half asleep and that the whole school only stayed in session half a day. People were busy the rest of the afternoon doing all sorts of last minute things. Then at 2 p.m., I heard a loud banging of drums and other instruments. Quickly I darted to the street, and I saw many of the students in a big parade. Here again I saw the floats, followed by large groups of spirited kids. I saw one of the floats off to the side of the road, it read " Linus Up For a Victory " and I heard some people say that it was the senior float and one of the wheels had fallen off the float. 20 Homecoming Rowdy sophomores walk next to their float, " Chuck ' em in the Doghouse " , in the Homecoming parade, screaming to show their spirit and support for their class. Problems with a tire leave seniors Iliya Schwartzman, Julie Lanman, Laura Holt, and Alisha Johns, stranded in Tilles ' parking lot on Ridge Road with their class ' s float. Band members dressed in Peanuts ' garb parade down Columbia Avenue, leading the Marching Band back to the school. Homecoming 21 Bitter cold didn ' t Home! prevent fans from enjoying the game T he strange thing about the floats was that they looked like my friends. There was one of Linus, Charlie Brown, and even one of myself. I didn ' t understand. The rest of the afternoon was really fun. There were field events and even a trike race. Although the Homecoming Dance is an evening to be spent with a date, these students take time out to share this dance with friends. By this time I had gotten quite hungry, but fortunately, there was a chicken barbeque going on at the school. After I stuffed myself at dinner, I found that I was quite tired. But, soon I found there was more to do. People from all over the place were going to the football field. This made me think of home, when Lucy would always pull the ball away just before Charlie Brown could kick it. I started to get a bit homesick, but there was so much going on and so much excitement that I soon forgot home. It was getting quite dark out by now, and I hid under the bleachers just in case the Red Baron might be planning a surprise attack. I remember it was bitterly cold, but there was so much excitement in the air that I don ' t know if the weather was bothering anyone else. Soon, before I knew it, it was halftime and Munster was beating Chicago Simeon 21 -6. I had a hard time hearing the announcements during halftime because of all the screaming. Suddenly it grew quiet and I heard senior Student Body President Debbie Markovich, say that senior Joni Stauffer escorted by junior John Hasse, had been voted queen. The crowd was so estatic that I even found myself jumping up and down. The Freshman princess was Lisa Delgado escorted by freshman Jim Kovach; the Sophomore princess was Irene Fabisiak escorted by sophomore Mike Bukowski; and the Junior princess was Maureen Mellady escorted by junior, Greg DePorter. The seniors had two princesses along with their queen. They were Judy Brauer escorted by senior, Craig Smith, and Cathy Reppa escorted by sophomore John Sakelaris. As the excitement of being crowned Homecoming queen set in, senior |oni Stauffer wipes tears of joy from her eyes. Standing before the crowd after receiving their roses is the Homecoming court of princesses: ' freshman Lisa Delgado and escort jim Kovach; juniors Maureen Mellady and escort Greg DePorter; senior Cathy Reppa with escort, sophomore )ohn Sakelaris; Queen, senior )oni Stauffer and escort, junior )ohn Hasse; senior princess Judy Brauer and escort, senior Craig Smith; and sophomores, princess Irene Fabisiak with escort Mike Bukvich. 22— Homecoming 4 After hours of dancing some girls found relief for their tired feet by shedding their shoes and abandoning their flowers. As freshmen Marianna Jocobo and escort Jim Condos arrive at the dance, the freshmen hostesses check off their reservations and collect their tickets. After dancing to the music of " Fluid Motion " , freshman Iris Broderick and senior Jeff Meyers return to their table to enjoy each other ' s company.

While he takes a break from hosting the Homecoming dance, freshman Dan Sipkowsky steps out to mingle with the crowd. Part of being a member of the Speech and Debate Team includes getting a little smoke in his eyes while working at the school ' s annual chicken barbeque. 24 Homecoming Hearing the sound Home! had been keeping an eye on the juniors ' float of me all night, and I couldn ' t help blushing a bit when I heard that the float " Snoopin ' Out a Win " won first place! I was also happy to hear that the sophomore float " Chuck ' em in the Doghouse " had gotten second place. Unfortunately, the senior float was cont. disqualified because they were unable to make it to the judging grounds on time. 1 must have fallen asleep shortly after the game but I remember the end score being 43-8. I guess I was more tired than I thought because I didn ' t wake up until Saturday evening. I don ' t think I would have woken up then if it wasn ' t for the loud music coming from inside the school. I decided to investigate. Luckily I was able to sneak into the school unnoticed. Once I got inside. I couldn ' t believe my eyes! Many of the students from the school filled the cafeteria. They were all nicely dressed and having a great time. The Freshman Class, who sponsored the dance, had decorated the cafeteria with murals and posters of me and my friends. They also provided lots of cookies, cakes, brownies, and punch for refreshments. Everyone was having so much fun dancing that I soon got caught up in the music of of Fluid Motion, I traced it to the cafeteria Fluid Motion, and I even started to dance. Around 11 p.m., everyone left so I snuk back outside and walked across the school grounds looking for a place to sleep that night. Near the construction area I noticed a familiar site— my plane! I quickly boarded and found that amazingly the machine was undamaged. I had had a great week, but now it was time to fly back home in search of the Red Baron and my friends once again.

Homecoming 25 Seniors score the first touchdown in the game as senior Pam Wiley carries the ball past the futile blocking attempts of junior Adrean Serna. Taking a breather from cheering, junior Greg Ryan leans on junior Sue Paulson and watches in digust as the seniors gain 20 yards. Juniors triumph over seniors for the first time in five years I rigid November winds pierced through I the small group of about 90 fans who sat in the bleachers cheering on the girls out on the football field. The junior and senior guys, dressed as cheerleaders, yelled and " rahhed " for their class while their wigs flopped about in the wind. After many touchdowns, passes, and snatching of flags, the juniors defeated the seniors with a score of lb- 14— breaking a five year tradition of senior wins. This was the scene during which girls and guys switch roles in the annual Powder Puff football game. Scoring touchdowns for the triumphant junior team, coached by Math teachers Mr. George Pollingue and Mr. Bob Shinkan, were Mary Sartain and Rene Gray. Two touchdowns were made for the senior team by Pam Wiley and Jill Barath. The senior ' s coach, Mr. John McDonald, mechanics teacher, felt that they lost " primarily because of the inefficiency of the officials watching the clock and the need for more referees on the field. " Instead of the regular halftime, the crowd was entertained with the wild antics of the cheerleaders who ran out on the field. After the game was over, and bruises began to get tender, the two teams were both satisfied in having earned approximately $100 for their classes and junior Leah Lennertz included, " we had a lot of fun competing too. " 26 Powder Puff Senior Jill Barath looks on with hopes of winning as her teammate senior Pam Wiley scores a touchdown making the score 7-0. Later the juniors were able to take over the senior ' s lead and win the game.

Dare to be different Is high school a place of added conformity or is it in fact a starting place for the development of individualism? When one looks back in elementary school, he remembers sticking by his friends and never doing anything against the majority of the crowd. Then he got into the middle school and it seemed that conformity was even more present. Not only did everyone go along with the crowd in actions and ideas, but on top of that, everyone dressed the same! For instance, everyone wore jeans on Fridays, and don ' t forget the comb that everyone had to keep in their back pocket. The phrase “do you own thing " meant little else than choosing the color of the comb you bought. Now that he finally got to high school though, things began to change. These people strove to be different. They were always trying to be in style, but they wouldn ' t be caught dead having the same exact outfit. Once a person entered high school he developed his individualism by getting involved in many different clubs and organizations. " I feel that being an individual is important because it lets me be myself and not just a carbon copy of everyone else, " explained senior Cindy Pugh. The student seemed to think that there still was a lot of conformity but it took on a much different form than it did in the previous years. " Students tend to conform to other students ' personalities instead of the physical things such as clothes, " stated sophomore Carol Pontius. Students showed their individuality in the things they wore, the cars they drove, and even in the way students decorated their lockers. But conformity still existed. In high school almost every student was part of a cliche which stereotyped them as freaks, brains, rahs, nerds, or jocks. Although this put labels on most of the students, there was always those who still sought ways to stand out and prove themselves an individual. From day to day, the different ways students dress reflect their moods and personalities. Daily outfits range from jeans and overalls to fashionable skirts. Students such as sophomore Renee Rubies, senior David Helms, sophomore Gina Pupillo, and soph- omore Lauren Shoemaker express their individuality. A prison cell changes into the dreams of Quixote fter being thrown into a Spanish prison A during the 16th century, Miguel de Cervantes relived the role of Don Quixote and fought for his " Impossible Dream " and the Dreams love of the beautiful Aldonza. As the stage transformed from the cold prison cell to the imaginary places in the mind of Don Quixote, the summer musical " Man of La Mancha " sprang into life. The 119 cast and crew members under the direction of Mr. Gene Fort, U.S. History teacher, and the Music Department Chairman Mr. Richard Holmberg helped to create the story of a man whose insanity caused him to believe he was a bold knight able to fight great battles. To enhance the story, there were many dances such as the " Knight of Mirrors " , the " Fight of the Windmills " , and the " Moorish Dance " which were all choreographed by Miss Kathy Dartt, English teacher. Special effects and unique costumes added to the cost of the production which came to approximately $6999. According to Mr. Fort, the members spent a lot of time practicing and putting a large effort into their production. Practice began in the middle of February three nights a week. As the stage lights dimmed on Don Quixote, his magical fantasy was shattered, " but, " stated Mr. Fort, " the musical itself was definitely a success! " Teasing her with the song " Little Bird, Little Bird, " many atempt to get the servant girl Aldonza, played by alumnus Colleen Walsh, for themselves. Straining to see the imaginary kingdom, Don Quixote, alumnus Tom Bosch, and his faithful companion, alumnus Kevin Burke, plan for their unsuccessful battle. Crazily singing and running down the front aisle, junior Ricky Parbst, as the barber, makes his hilarious entrance onto the stage. While he listens to seniors Rose Santare and Ann Melby confess their embarrassment of their relative Don Quixote in the song " I ' m only thinking of Him, " senior Brian Thompson, as the Padre, asks God for help.

Sweeney would take the clients ' lives as well as their money S have and a haircut sometimes wasn ' t all that a customer of Sweeney Todd, demon barber of the Barbary Coast, got for his money. Occasionally Sweeney Todd, played by junior Rick Parbst, and his assistant, Mrs. Lovett, played by sophomore Suzanne El Naggar, took the customer ' s life as well as his 32 Fall Play Lethal money and jewels. This was the catastrophe which troubled the residents of the Barbary Coast in the Fall Play, presented on Nov. 16 and 17 by a cast of 28, directed by English teacher Ms. Linda Aubin. junior Kerry Connor explained, " a lot of time, effort and fun went into the show and that ' s why we were able to present such a good show. " Sweeney probably would have gotten away with his criminal acts if he had not decided to marry the prominent Lillie Fairoak, played by senior Janice Levy, and move into politics. After this decision Todd is harassed by an orphan boy, sailors, society matrons, and the spirits of those he had killed, therefore his cover as an honest barber is destroyed. Finally justice wins out in the end as the audience echoed the chant " oh joy, oh bliss, oh happy day " . Laughing sinisterly, Sweeney Todd, played by junior Rick Parbst, thinks about the cleverness of his own diabolical plans to become rich. Daydreaming of a future rendezvous with sailor Tom, Miss Lilly, played by senior (anice Levy, anxiously awaits his return from sea. To show their gratitude toward Sweeney Todd for adopting Billy, two high society ladies, played by freshman Marianna jocobo and senior Lisa Nesevich, cordially invite him, as guest of honor, to a charity dinner for orphans. Fall Play 33 A burst of wind took her to a land over the rainbow Wizard T he wind blew fiercely, and as she fought the wind, Dorothy heard her Aunt Em yelling, " Dorothy, it ' s a twister Dorothy, get in the cellar! " But it was no use, Dorothy staggered on to the steps of her porch and suddenly a burst of wind took her off to a place far, far away, to a place somewhere over the rainbow . . , And so the stage came alive during the Spring Play as munchkins sang and a scarecrow limply walked, Feb. 8, 9, and 10. Junior Greg Benkovich felt, " the play was a good choice mainly because it is such a classic. Also, the play was chosen mainly for children, which was a good percentage of our audiences. " He felt that the play appealed to all ages. As Dorothy, played by junior Heidi Langendorff, searched for the Wizard from the Land of Oz, she met a scarecrow, a tinman, and a lion, played by juniors Greg Benkovich, Greg Ryan, and Rick Parbst, respectively. This foursome traveled to Oz in hopes of finding their dreams, whether it be some brains, a heart, their home, or simply some courage. Finally, after battling the wicked witch, each character was granted his wish from the Wizard. Although Dorothy finally had her wish to go on the other end of the rainbow, she was softly heard repeating, " there is no place like home, there is no place like home. " After a futile attempt to be brave, the lion played by junior Rick Parbst, confesses his cowardness to Dorothy and her friends.

While he hangs on his post, the scarecrow, played by junior Greg Benkovich, wishes he could go with Dorothy to Oz so that he could get some brains from the Wizard. Spring Play 35 IDhat’s •qour line ? " I ' m sorry, I can ' t go out Friday night. I think I promised my grandmother I ' d take her to get her hair done ' ' . . . and as she walked away, he realized to his embarrassment that she was the eleventh girl that week who had turned him down for Friday ' s dance. As he headed home he glanced in the bookstore window and spotted the book that was sure to change his life. " How to Snag That Special Fish, " by R.U. Lonely. " Mmm . . . that has to be the book for me. " With a glint of hope in his eye, Rodney Reject madly dashed into the store and picked up the answer to his problems. That night Rodney stayed up till 3:00 a.m. memorizing the fool-proof lines from the book and practicing his technique. On the other side of town Wendy Wallflower was in a similar predicament. She sat in her room crying, having realized that it was Wednesday night and she had not yet been asked to the dance on Friday. In hopeless desparation she spent the night leafing through " How to Win a Man, " by B.A. Flirt. The next day Rodney left for school s ure that he would capture the female of his species. Sitting in his first hour Geometry class he notices Miss Desirable sitting alone in the back of the room. Confident, he approaches her, looks her straight in the eye and makes his first attempt. " I just got a new suit that I ' d like to try out— wanna go to the dance? " Dejected, but not totally without hope, he went to his next class. Suddenly his spirits lifted as he laid eyes upon Volumptuous Valerie. Gathering up all his courage once again, he slowly said, " This girl in my math class didn ' t want to go with me to the dance, so I wondered if you would want to go? " But once again, he was turned down. Meanwhile, Wendy Wallflower wasn ' t having much more luck. Despite her exaggerated attempts at flirting, she still After a week of nervous attempts to try a ' reverse the lines ' sophomore Debbie Cain sighs with relief as she finally purchases her ticket for Chi from seniors Sue Acheson and Carol Etter. wasn ' t noticed, except for one undesirable victim who fell to her woes much to her dismay. She in turn, uninterested with him, told him that she had to " wash the fish tank, water the plants, and take the dog for a walk. " As the school day came to an end both Wendy and Rodney, with their confidence shattered, clumsily bumped into each other in the hall. As Rodney looked into Wendy ' s eyes a spark of hope ignited. Thinking back to her book Wendy automatically puts a dazzling smile on her face and attempts to capture his interest with a cute remark. Rodney, gathering up his charms, makes his last attempt. " I know we just met, but I have two tickets for Friday ' s dance, and nobody to go with. " Supressing her excitement in order to play hard to get, Wendy answers that she doesn ' t think she has plans for Friday yet, but she ' ll have to check, and flashes him still another smile. " Well, I ' ll call you then, " he exclaimed. " See you later then, " he added. " I hope so, " she said with a smile. " So long! " she added. 36 Lines Double dating is sometimes preferred on first dates to relieve nervousness. Juniors Adrienne Serna, David Min, Jack Krawczyk and Kerry Connor enjoy an evening out. While most students attend basketball games to cheer the team on, others take advantage of this situation to drum up a date for next Saturday night. As the sophomores put the final touches on their float during Homecoming, the big social event of the year, clever lines are being thought up in hopes of luring a date for the dance. As the fun and excitement of the evening builds on, senior Suzie Strater realizes that the nervousness she encountered conjuring up a successful line has paid off as she dances with escort, junior Greg Bankovich. Lines 37 " What if he says no? I ' m scared! " Jitters re you still going to ask Dwayne to Chi? " " I don ' t know now. What if he says no? I ' m so nervous. " " I know what you mean. It took me about 3 weeks to get up enough nerve to ask Bill! " Such are the type of conversations which could be heard all over school starting in December, about two weeks before Chi Kappa Chi ' s Winter Turnabout Dance which was held on )an. 15. According to the turnabout tradition, the girls traded their roles with the boys and asked them to the dance instead of the usual way. But despite the cold, snowy weather, 105 couples attended the dance which was held from 8 to 11 p.m. at the Cameo Club. The turnabout featured the band " Santa Fe " to which students rock-n-rolled to songs by Ted Nugent and the Cars, among many others. One wall was decorated with the dance ' s theme " Sentimental Lady " . After standing in line for pictures with ears almost deaf from the music, the turnabout finally came to an end. But for most students, despite their tired feet, the night was still young. Couples ventured out to parties or restaurants to eat and meet with friends, making the evening one to always remember. Away from the dance floor, junior Vern Holzall and Pam Michel quietly consider different places that they could go for dinner after the turnabout is over. 38 Chi Rocking to the sounds of Sante Fe, juniors Judy Cardenas and Jerry Miller enjoy a fast dance at Chi. After they arrive at the Cameo Club, seniors Kathleen O ' Connell, Robert Zondor, Jeff Lasky, and junior Jeanine Gozdecki sign up for pictures to be taken that night and pick up one of the memory books so that they can remember the evening. Before getting their picture taken, senior Elizabeth Homan adjusts her date ' s boutonniere so that everything looks just right. Taking advantage of the munchies and relishes served at the turnabout, senior Bob Linderman and junior Johnette Cates fill their plates to take a break from dancing. Chi 39 School doors open to a ' First Time for Love ' Romance fter weeks of looking for the per- fect dress, ordering tuxedos, and finding just the right bouquet or boutonniere, the 162 couples attended the dance for a " First Time For Love " . The Junior Class opened the doors on May 3, a warm, summerlike evening. to a springlike atmosphere. As midnight approached, the band played the Prom theme and the couples started to venture off to spend an hour alone or at a party before heading to St. Michael ' s Ukranian Flail for Post- Prom. After an hour of music by " Fluid Motion " , the food was served, consisting of beef, chicken, and sausage and sauerkraut as the main courses. Later, students relaxed and socialized with other couples until the dance came to an end at 4 a.m. The weekend was still not over. After catching about three hours of sleep, students took advantage of the July- type weather on Sunday and took off to the beaches and amusement parks. By now everyone was pretty tired but most people were having too much fun to notice. As Sunday came to an end and people finally went home, many discovered that they were not only exhausted from the weekend ' s activities, but they were also suffering sunburn pains, the results of a day spent in the hot sun- bringing this Prom weekend to a close. Taking advantage of the music, sophomores Lauren Shoemaker and Clair Dixon lose themselves in the sounds of Post-Prom ' s band " Starbound " . The theme of Prom, " First time for love " is expressed with enthusiasm as juniors Ed Gomez and Marissa Gederian dance the evening away. 40 Prom Practicing his etiquette, senior Mai Dixon pushes in senior Betty Adamczyk ' s chair upon arriving at Prom.

Right before dinner is served at the Post-Prom, junior Bruce Corban jokingly tries on sophomore Michelle Witmer ' s shawl to lighten up the evening. Prom 41 I Dressed in their best, sophomore Debbie Dechantal and Jeff Milne danced away the night at the formal, sponsored by Chi Kappa Chi. Dances While most students were cheering at a football or basketball game, a group of people silently hauled in large, awkward equipment and set it up inside the cafeteria. Huge amplifiers were skillfully hooked up and guitar strings were tuned. Finally, when the games were over, rowdie students began to make their way into the cafeteria. The band started to play and so began one of the dances held throughout the year. Such bands as M R Rush, Dyllinger, and Deep River performed different types of music ranging from disco to Taking it easy, students prefer to listen and enjoy the music rather than actually getting up to dance. 44 After game dances a sitting situation rock-n-roll, including Munster ' s own In- truder whose band members included seniors Kris Klyczak, Dave Szakacs, and Rick Conway, and sophomores Tom Mihalareas, and Shannon Wilson. All the dances were sponsored by an organization or club in the school and the cost was about $2.00 per student. Although they were called after-game dances, that wasn ' t what they usually turned out to be. Some students liked showing off the latest dance steps, but the majority tended to sit or stand and just listen to the music. And then there were some students who didn ' t come at all. " I think that the after-game dances are only directed toward a small amount of people ' s interests, " commented junior Dave Williams. The after game dances appealed to a small amount of people, however, the formal dances attracted a larger portion of students. It seemed to take a long dress and a suit to get most of the students to dance. The amount of students that did turn up at a dance was really determined by which band was playing. Some students preferred disco over rock, but the majority seemed to like rock better. " I feel that more people prefer rock over disco because rock is the fad right now and people tend to follow the crowd, " explained sophomore Elaine Markovich. After the games, many students ventured off to parties or McDonald ' s, but for others, the after-game dances became a routine every Friday. It was a place to come and listen to good music- " a nice way to end a Friday night, " stated sophomore Kelly Chapin. As the amount of people attending the dances grew sparse, it became less profitable for the clubs and organizations who sponsored them. Sophomore Patty Burns is one of the few who attended the dance featuring ' Betrayer ' . After game dances 45 ith dance turn out decreasing, many students still lend their Friday nights in the cafeteria watching siting bands perform, junior Vesna Trikich and eve Zeldenrust choose to listen rather than tnce. Betrayer ' brought " good rock ' n roll " to the cafeteria, consequently, the admission went up to $2 in order for the students to enjoy better music at the dances. Separate exercises dampen Grads ' Spirits A lthough some of the 380 sen iors were willing to brave Commencement exercises in their gollashes and raincoats, rainstorms dampened the excitement on June 1, as the Class of 1980 had to resort to Plan B. Construction of the fieldhouse posed problems. Plan A, in which Commencement was to be held on the football field with the Class as a whole, was cancelled because of the heavy rains in the early morning; consequently, the flag was not flying at noon and the decision was made to hold Commencement - indoors. Plan B was enacted, which consisted of the Class being divided into two shifts, taking place in the auditorium. Diplomas were presented to the first half of the Class at 4 p.m. and the second half at 6 p.m. Presenting the Class was Dr. David Dick, as Superintendant Dr. Wallace Underwood, along with School Board members Mrs. Nancy Smallman, Mr. William Rednour )r., and Mr. Herbert Weinberg awarded the diplomas. Before the receiving of diplomas, Student Body President Debbie Markovich presented the invocation and valedictorians Susan Goldenberg, Margaret Novak, Judy Stoddart, and Stan Zygmunt gave their addresses. Earlier in the day, 150 graduates filled the auditorium for Baccalaureate at 1 p.m. The invocation was given by Class Vice-President Janet Nottoli, and readings were presented by Secretary- Treasurer Julie Lanman and Salutatorian Jan Heinz. Closing the program, Reverend Richard C. Rogers gave the Address and the Benediction. Although graduation was a very big day for the seniors, there were mixed emotions concerning Plan B. Seniors complained and groaned about it. Some hopelessly petitioned it, and other presented new plans to prevent the Class from being split. As Susan gave her Valedictorian Address for the second time, she expressed her dissatisfaction with Plan B. Despite the disappointment of not graduating as a whole Class, the seniors finally received their long-awaited diplomas with excitement and enthusiasm. 46 Wishing him well with a Concert Choir, directed by Mr. congratulatory handshake.

Other valedictorians Margaret Novak, Judy Stoddart and Stan Zygmunt and Salutatorian Janice Heinz also spoke. With her graduation now behind her, senior Karen Ambler lets her mind wander while waiting for her parents.

The main reason L we come to school is to earn our 38 credits to graduate. But on the other hand, we spend an average of 420 minutes a day (sometimes more) five days a week here in this 67 room building. There must have been more here than met the eye. It could have been possible that we had found classes that captured our in- terest. It was not hard to find a club that helped enhance and expand that attrac- tion. If you enjoyed French class, you could easily have joined American Field Services or French Club and visited area ethnic restaurants, among many other activities. On the other hand, if you were into business classes, DECA exposed you to outside competition. What ever you were interested in, one of the 29 clubs could suit your needs. If you were especially lucky, you may have stumbled upon an appealing class that provided you with both credits and a coordinating organization or club to belong to. Classes such as orchestra or journalism were just few of the many choices available. But the actual class itself was taking on a brand new look. Students may have leaned toward more advance classes such as advance science, math, and English courses in order to receive more points toward their Grade Point Average which were available only to juniors and underclassmen. With 68% college-bound seniors, it became obvious that school was taken more seriously to build for the future. School Life 48 School Life Hoping to perfect their intonation, junior Dave Smisek and sophomore Tricia Ulber practice their violins diligently in order to be ready for the up- coming orchestra concert. Drawing the line of his drafting project to near ex- cellence, junior Dave Breclaw concentrates on his work in hopes of a good grade. In preparation of the day ' s oriental feast, soph- omore Kathy Wands makes sure the rice doesn ' t burn while her partner sophomore Debbie Slosser anxiously awaits its finish. School Life 49 Monday - sleepwalkers struggle Required classes give foundations for a more prepared life Monday. Waking up to a screaming alarm clock and tiredly getting out of a warm bed, students start through the school day. Stretching and yawning simultaneously, Patty Pom-Pon warms up for her weight training and conditioning day. Barely able to keep her eyes open, she runs her three miles and makes her way over to the weight machines after completing her chin-ups and sit- ups. In the second six weeks, Patty was found asleep in the Commons during the break, forcing her to miss her bowling bus. She watched bowling films and took tests, besides keeping her 125 point average throughout the six weeks. Not having much experience in the water, third six weeks, Patty chose beginning swimming. She learned new strokes as well as improving others. She was taught to dive and also to swim underwater. First semester completed Patty ' s one and one half years of physical education. Other options included water safety, swimming and diving, volleyball, or softball and soccer. Ozzie Ordinary shyly scuffled into Biology, took his seat in the third row of the lecture hall, and attempted to pay attention to the lecture of Cell Structure. Beginning the year, he took a 50 point test on how to take notes but the other tests were 25 point multiple choice questions. English was required for all four years. During English 9, Bernie Burn-out lifted his shaded glasses to re-check the overhead for notes on sentence patterns. During the year he also learned punctuation and wrote compositions, and read Inherit the Wind, Great Expectations, Animal Physical education builds muscles especially during weight training and conditioning as shown here by freshman Mark Cetch. 50 Required Classes Cell Structure provides mental stimulation and contemplation for freshmen Paul Phipps, Bob Pelley, and Paul Onest in biology. Taking a deserved break from working proofs and conic sections, sophomore Brenda Kushnak chuckles over one of Mr. Steve Wroblewski ' s jokes. Island maps from The Lord of the Flies were just a minute segment of English 10, as sophomore Mary McLaughlin indicates the location of the lighthouse.

English 10 grammar was a breeze for Ozzie Ordinary although the (Compositions were a little rougher and so were the novels such as Camelot, Lord of the Flies, and Silas Marner. The weekly vocabulary tests helped to raise his grade. With reading being his bag, he easily interpreted The Masque of the Red Death, To Build a Fire, and Contents of a Dead Man ' s Pockets, junior English proved to be a little more trying for Bill Bod. He sleepily muscled his way through the grammar, poetry, novels, and compositions, but the term paper was a little more than he had expected. In order to improve their expository writing skills, all seniors including Herbert Puzzled by his Lord of the Flies worksheet, sophomore Ken Croner attempts to decipher the question. Head had to turn in six five- paragraph themes, three twelve- paragraph themes, as well as six in class compositions. A unit on punctuation and dangling modifiers made up the rest of the class along with current events and literature. Lazy Larry, carrying a stack of books strolled into Health and Safety, required for one half year, and began to memorize the bones. Although the muscles, tendons, and ligament lectures bored him, he enjoyed the respiratory system, but dreaded performing Coronary Pulminary Resuscitation (CPR) on Annie. U.S. History was required for all juniors. With new books and new surroundings, Brooke Worm managed easily from building the colonies to winning independence to the challenges of a new era with the dates ranging from 1450-1970 ' s. Millie Mediocre chose Sociology for one semester. The students studied other people to better understand themselves. Millie thought the guest speakers, discussions, and projects were fabulous, but the lectures and papers were another story. Since becoming a freshman Bill Bod dreaded the moment he had to take Government. The Executive, Legislative, and judicial Branches were stressed during the class, but there was also an introduction to philosophy and the political parties, and a deserved break during Hopcal. Two years of math were required for everyone. Since Brooke Worm had taken Algebra I in eighth grade, she could surpass General Math I and II and dive straight into Geometry followed by Algebra II with an option of Trigonometry and College Algebra, Calculus, or possibly Computer Math. Returning from a fire drill at the end of the day, students trudged home gradually and began their load of homework. 52 Required Classes Guest speakers, such as Father Doyle, enable the Sociology class to interpret his theories on the current prison system. Blood, its function, and structure was just one of the many units covered in Health and Safety. Sophomore Dan McTaggart is aided by Mr. jack King while discussing the subject. Deviance, one of the many topics covered during Sociology, is experienced by senior Brent Huard.

Lecturing hour after hour can get to any teacher. Mrs. Mary York finds sitting helps her to get through Composition I. Hardwork unlocks the door into Advanced Classes Tuesday. Getting over the Monday morning blues, students began to settle back into the daily routine of homework and tests. Robin Rah picked up her pen and began to write her 100 point composition for Advanced English. Writing skills were heavily stressed with compostions and essay tests comprising most of each six weeks ' grade. Vocabulary also played an important part in this curriculumn. As she wrote her compostion, which was due yesterday, her mind wandered off into the week ahead with an essay test on the novel that they had just completed and a 60 word vocabulary test on Friday. Groaning over the anticipated homework, she focused her attention to the work on hand. Speaking fluent French, Spanish, and German, Betty Brain moved upward into foreign language levels IV, V, and VI. The fourth year was spent learning the geography and culture of the native country of that language. Fifth and sixth year classes focused on applying that language to reading novels and writing compositions. She had the task of completing a Spanish novel and writing a summary by the end of the week. Marsha Mind enjoyed the trigonometry section in Geometry so much she chose Trigonometry to complete her math major. She learned six functions and applied these to wavelengths and identities. Fler highly developed graphing skills soon became her pride and joy. By the end of the year she had a good insight into the study of math. Calculus enabled Art Smart to apply all his knowledge gained in previous math courses to more complex problems. Fie obtained an applicable understanding of derivatives, limits, and integrals in this theoretical field.

He worked his way through properties of real numbers, polynomials, equations and functions, conic sections, and matices. Advances Computer Math was Bill Bright ' s favorite class. Being absorbed in the computer field, he loved the challenge of 18 weeks of programming the computer in one of the two languages, basic and fortran. He planned on coming in everyday after school to get the full benefits of this new computer. Mice became a vital part in Plain lane ' s life after Advanced Biology became a part of her schedule. Focusing on the internal workings of animals throughout the year, she received a mouse to care for and experiment with. She became disgusted when she discovered she had to dissect her friend, after all, she had become quite attatched to this little white ball of fur. This thought prevailed in her mind since she executed this gruesome task later that week. Water boils over a bunsen burner, and senior Slavko Bosnich carefully places the weight inside as senior Tom Corsiglia assists during a mixtures lab in Physics. 56 Advanced Classes Bill Bright breezed through the units on atoms, moles, compounds, and molecules. He enjoyed spending two class periods a week in the lab working with chemicals, bunsen burners, test tubes, and scales. At the beginning of each unit he completed the reading, vocabulary, and worksheets with ease. His mind was occupied with the excitement of the " Analyzation of a Chemical Compound " lab tomorrow. Bill could hardly wait to take the Advanced Chemistry course next year. He looked forward to applying his skills on a higher level. From his teacher he learned that this class involved a more in-depth study of organic chemistry, atomic structure, bonding, and solutions such as rate of reactions. He anticipated the more individual help the teacher could supply in the classroom ' s smaller size. Betty Brain decided to further her study in the scientific world by taking Physics. Every night she had to complete a small homework assignment to help her get a better understanding of each unit. During the year she studied analyzation of date, vectors, distance, velocity, and acceleration with lab experiments to visually back up each unit. On Friday she had an open book test which was a relief from the usual closed book tests. She occasionally had tests which could be done with a partner to boost her grade if she happened to pick the right partner. Advanced Physics would complete Betty ' s scope of knowledge in science. The whole year focused on learning strategies for scientific problem solving. Using these strategies, Betty applied them in dimensional analysis, trigonometry and vectors, calculus introduction, and rational motion. The class, she learned from friends, was basically a theoretical pre-engineering class. College textbooks and workbooks supplemented the classroom lectures. The working of the mind posed an interesting challenge for Dead Head as he took the Advanced Psychology course. He learned a lot from the individual projects. He had a choice of giving a report, showing a movie, drawing a poster, or having a guest speaker come in. After projects are completed the teacher tried to get up a discussion. Dead Head had to take one of the few written tests in that class on Thursday. For Wednesday he had to arrange for his uncle, a social worker, to come in and talk to the class. Arms loaded down with books, most students went home with homework to finish and tests to study for in the coming week. Current events compositions are just a small part of Advanced English. Junior Michele Uram finishes her research. Gestures are an important part of speech delivery. Senior Roxanne Paulson practices her presentation in order to achieve perfection during Speech III. Springs and various colored balls representing bonds and molecules proved to be a little tough for sophomores Jeff Miller and Mike Nelson as they ask Mr. Don Ullman for assistance during Chemistry.

The object of this game is to make it through a 55 minute study hall without landing in detention. To play the study hall game you need a die. Beginning at study hall, players take turns moving their marker around the board and follow the directions given on the spaces. When coming to an option space, the student must decide what choice to make and then advance. If you break a rule, you get caught and must advance to de- tention. At the end of the game, the winner is the first one to make it through the period without landing in detention. The loser must remain in detention either after school or report first thing in the morning for 55 minutes. But, remember, whether you win or you lose, you must re- port to study hall the next day and begin all over. Oops! Forgot your history book. Go back to your lock er and back to start.

Wednesday ■ Communication classes help students beat mid-week doldrums Wednesday. " Hump Day, " the midpoint of the week, arrives with its usual hustle and bustle as stu- dents cram for the flurry of tests over the next two days. Students wait with joyful anticipation for the weekend ahead as they struggle with the middle-of-the-week blahs. Nancy Nice ploped herself down in front of the shadow scope and quickly read down the page of the assigned material in her Devel- opmental Reading class. She fin- ished the page in record time and sits back in her seat. Nancy was amazed over how much her read- ing speed had increased over the semester. She thought back to the first time she sat in front of a speed machine. At first she got flustered, then she realized she could read that fast and still understand what she read. Then came the tape ma- chines accompanied by workbook pages. The material was enforced by a test at the end of each section. The vocabulary tests increased her word knowledge tremendously. Nancy propped herself up on the edge of her chair and continued to follow the light down the next page. Nick Nogood slumped his way into his second hour Spanish Conversation class for another hour of speaking a foreign tongue. This class was better than Spanish I, II or III he thought as he opened his book. Graduating from basic vocabulary, verb endings, and grammar he learned during the previous three levels, he now worked on practical application of the language putting his knowledge to use as he talked about the picture in the book. Francie Frump entered her French I class for another hour of Taking a break from the usual barrage of reading assignments, seniors Charles Pfister and Scott Milne watch a movie during De- velopmental Reading. f 0 Communication classes midweek blohs Aid from Senora Lynne Fredriksen enables Translating from English to Spanish, fresh- freshman Sonia Tosiou to continue with her man joe Markovich completes his adjective Spanish quiz on the dialogue. agreement test. Notetaking during a lecture on French verb conjugation became a must for junior Mari Sartain as she listend attentively, and tries to understand the rules. Conversational dialogues played a major role during German for sophomores Phil Pramuk and Darryl Smith as both test each other ' s memories. Communication classes 61 Wednesday - midweek blahs From German to journalism, students express themselves pronouncing the alphabet, counting, and reciting the days of the week and months of the year. She looked forward to French II and French III in which she hoped to increase her knowledge of the language. At this time dialogues seemed so much more exciting than the alphabet; however, Francie realized that the basics were needed to move upward. Danny Digit considered himself a knowledgeable fellow as he entered German I with the ability to count to 20 in German. He shortly learned, however, that there was more to any language than just counting as he moved into verb conjugation and answering the questions after the dialogue. Danny realized that it wouldn ' t get any easier in German II and German III. He had heard from a reliable source that the tests got increasingly harder. Star Reporter rushed into Journalism I and frantically tried to complete her beat report (an area for news coverage) before the bell rang. All the writing techniques she learned during the second semester became vital to her as she tried to write a story suitable for publication in the " Crier, " the school newspaper. During the past semester Star learned how to report news, conduct an interview, write features, write headlines, and edit copy. The bell rang as Star circled " 30 " on the bottom which signified her story was complete. The rush was over as she confidently handed in her first beat report. She returned to her seat and thought about the beginning of the year when she learned all about the impact and influence of mass media. Following those units she had to do an oral report to get over the fear of talking in front of an audience. Moving onward, her class followed the steps of journalism development from the Egyptians to modern day. She smiled as she recalled planning and drawing an advertisement which appeared in the " Sun Journal ' s " annual Ad-Craft issue. To close the first semester the radio and television were thoroughly covered. " Hump Day " drew to a close as students tucked away their communication classes ' books, gathered up their homework and headed home, knowing the weekend was near. " Le Penseur " , “The Thinker " finds a quiet repose on the desk of junior Greg Ryan as he learns vocabulary words in French II. 62 Communication classes Sweaty palms and shaky knees often strike the public speaker as Tish Adams shyly tries to give her journalism I oral report. Visual aides such as posters help soph- omore Ellen Lem stress her point about the effect of television on children during her journalism I oral report. Temperatures rose and fell throughout the entire school year. The German classes found it quite inaccurate as the thermome- ter read 105° F. U i EFFECT Iqf TV L ON CHILDREN Careers in foreign languages were discussed by Mr. Mark Boeyink as he shared his knowledge with many of the language stu- dents encouraging them to pursue a career using their skills. Contemplating her classmates ' discussion on the effects of mass media on society, sophomore Linda Taillon organizes her thoughts to contribute to the discussion. Communication classes 63 Thursday - time to cram again Interests develop skills Thursday. The fourth day of the week arrives and the students begin to cram for the upcoming tests tomorrow. Rowdie Robin Rah skips into her Foods class. For the first four weeks the students learned about measurements, calories, and nutrition. As the fifth week began, at least twice a week the room contained a tantalizing odor which tempted all those passing through the halls that day. Robin received many compliments as she carried her treats from class to class passing out samples. In Clothing, Plain )ane had to purchase her own patterns, materials, thread, zippers, buttons, and a thimble. Also, )ane had to provide a pin cushion and scissors. She started out with an option of a wrap skirt or stuffed animal and proceeded to plaid and knit shirts. As the bell rang, Plain )ane rose, shyly walked through the halls, and entered the typing room. Born with an aptitude to type, she placed her fingers adeptly on the keys. After she had learned the positioning of her hands on the keys and correct posture, she began doing timed writings. In hopes of getting a few extra letters after the bell, she continued to type. Dreaming of someday becoming a secretary. Jane enrolled in Shorthand. She learned symbols for letters, practiced timed writings, and now quickly takes notes in all of her classes as a benefit. Dead Head enters the Business Machines class tardy. He slowly staggers to his seat in order to further his education in this field. After somehow fumbling his way through Typing I and Typing II, he found himself stranded in the midst of calculators, transcribing equipment, mimeograph and duplicating machines, electric typewriters, and a classroom of girls trying to learn fundamental office procedures. Safety, a major concern in metals shop, is effectively enforced by fhe use of protective equipment as in the case of senior Mark Kaminski. Celery and boiled eggs are combined with lettuce and carrots by junior Tish Adams to create a scrumptious chef ' s salad during Foods I. Careful control of the tools must be em- ployed as junior Scott Kaluf firmly holds his chisel while carving final marks on his woods project. Rice became a staple food for the students in Foods I as each prepares this grain a new and different way. junior Mike Moore chose Spanish rice for his creation. Achieving a better understanding of ortho- graphic projections, sophomore Sandy Har- ding meets after school with Mr. Dick Hunt, Drafting teacher. Skill Classes 65 Squiggly lines and incomprehensible scrawls magically transform into readable messages as junior Dawn Vukovich discovers a new way of taking notes. Sheet metal boxes are constructed as the first required project after completing the initial six weeks of bookwork. Freshman Brian Hobbic and Chris Melon use this knowledge to create their project. Amidst a pile of metal shavings sophomore Bill Ramsey trims his metal strip to a minute fraction of an inch. Briiing . . . The bell rings and freshman Trina Blaszak stares in disbelief, amazed at the amount of errors she made during her first three minute accuracy timed writing. 66 Skill Classes Thursday - time to cram again cont. Skills prepare for future Not paying attention while learning the use of equipment, Phil Physique poked his eye with a T- square during Drafting class. Using his HB pencil and his triangle, Phil sketched his way out of lettering, conic sections, orthographic projections, and perspectives with the help of his drafting book as a reference. Dead Head wanders into the Woods area. After completing the initial four to six weeks of bookwork in order to acquire the knowledge necessary to complete projects, he almost cuts off his finger in the process of making his first required project, a three- legged footstool. Dead Head slid under the car in Power Mechanics to have a look around. He stood up, walked to the front of th e car, opened the hood, and began to determine the engine parts. He noticed another student working on a lawnmower in the back of the room. His friend had to take apart the lawnmower engine and put it back together. Dead Head, preferring an easier schedule, masters the four to six weeks of bookwork required to develop skills in Metals. His first successful project, a sheet metal box, inspired him to apply his skills on the lathe, in welding and in foundry. At last the final bell rang and the students scurried home to cram for their tests that they must manuever through tomorrow in order to " make the grade " . Surrounded by the tools of his trade, sophomore Don Peterson slides his pencil making a precise line in Drafting I. Tribulations t s. Titilations Freshmen, the sign up for next year ' s classes start next week. Appointments are posted in each class. Be on time. As I sit in my second hour class, listen- ing to the announcements, my mind is preoccupied with things other than who won last night ' s basketball game or that there is a French Club meeting after school. This last announcement registers in my mind and a sudden rush of thought reaches my brain. I think back to the time when I was a freshman and was faced with the monu- mental decision of what classes I would take throughout the rest of high school. Reflecting back on the classes that I ' ve taken, I wonder if I made the right choices. There were so many choices, so many paths to follow. I remember as a freshman I did not like Biology. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that it was a required course and also that there was a lot of work involved. Physical Education was also one of my " dreaded " classes. Get- ting all hot and sweaty and changing my clothes twice in one class period just wasn ' t my idea of fun. The only class that brightened up my freshman year was Choir. Besides having no homework, the class supplied a good release from the tension that built up throughout the day. Sophomore year I moved up the lad- der another rung and took harder classes than I did last year. One can only feel true frustration after taking Geometry. I was never so con- fused with a class in my life. A prevailing thought in my mind that year was who cares if this triangle is similar to that tri- angle, anyway? One of my favorite classes that year was Health Safety. The quick wit and unprovoked humor of Mr. Jack King, the teacher, filled each hour with loads of laughter. The course material was fairly easy which added to the likeability of the class. Also, working with Resuscita- tion Annie was uniquely different. Junior year posed entirely new chal- lenges and triumphs of its own. United States History, a must for all ju- niors, was my pet peeve class that year. My mind soon became jumbled with dates and facts which to this day remain unused. It seemed the only things that we ever did was to have lectures, do workbook pages, then take a test. How boring! I took a break that year and took a study hall to lighten the class load. It was a great time to complete my homework and, if nothing else, to catch up on my lost sleep. Senior year has come. Soon I won ' t have to go to another class again (until college). The semester is almost over, something I ' ve waited for most of my life. Ah, Government, the hardest and most challenging class for many in their four years of high school. In order to pass a test, I had to study intensely for a minimum of two hours and that was just to pass by a hair. Hopcal posed prob- lems of its own. Writing bills just didn ' t seem to be one of my talents. The only one of my bills that got passed was a bill to require every dog owner to also own a pooper scooper. Sociology was one of my most inter- esting classes of the year. The teacher, Mr. Paul Schreiner, got so involved with his lectures. His hands were constantly moving, visually reinforcing a point. The projects, such as wearing a black hood to depict deviance, provided many laughs and fascinating conclusions. The guest speakers also livened the class with their firsthand knowledge on a subject. All in all, it ' s been a good four years. I survived all the trials and tribulations of the classes I didn ' t like, and I enjoyed the triumphs and titilations of the classes I did like. Uh oh, the announcements are over. I draw myself out of the past and move into the present. I open my notebook and uncap my pen. I am ready to begin or should I say end my stay at this school before I move on. Intently listening to Mr. Gene Fort ' s lecture on Jacksonian democrary, junior Steve Lennertz pre- pares for the upcoming 60 points test. With voices singing in harmony, the Choir prac- tices for their Christmas program under the direc- tion of Mr. Richard Holmberg. 68 Tribulations vs. Titilations During the unit on respiration, sophomore Vince Pokrifcak makes a joke about the larnyx as Mr. jack King watches in amusement. Guest speakers, such as Mr. Al Grossenbacher, play a vital part in Sociology as an additional source of information. Eyes closed in concentration, freshman April Chambers puts her effort into it as she tones up her biceps during weight training, an option in P.E. Tribulations vs. Titilations 69 Friday - weekend arrives Everyday Life classes offer steps to future Friday. Anticipation arose for the upcoming weekend as thoughts of classroom work faded and new ideas for the two free days developed. Everyday life classes proved a helpful tool in aiding students throughout the weekend. Chicken Charlie couldn ' t muster up enough courage to ask Foxy Farrah for a date, but he managed to send her a secret admirer carnation. Being in the s?rr.e Business Law class, they had an opportunity for discussions, even if they were only on guilty or not guilty verdicts. They also questioned the rights of minors and how minors could get out of just about any contract they signed. By outlining the chapters, learning vocabulary words, and answering questions, they learned about crimes. They also set up a court system with a judge and jury. Sopisticated Sara sauntered into Accounting and gracefully dusted off her chair before occupying her seat. As she reached for her envelope, she also picked up her workbook, which, accompanied by lectures, made up most of the class. A simulation of an actual accountant job for a business was what she was assigned to do during the quadrasonics unit. Paying the bills and balancing the checkbook allowed Sara to get a feeling of accounting. Congenial Cathy bounced through the halls with a smile from ear to ear greeting everyone in sight, then entered the Consumer Education room. She learned how to go about purchasing a house or a car. She was educated in the field of bank loans, credit unions, and interest rates. She was taught not to buy impulsively and also how to mortgage a house. She exited happily and strolled down the halls. After viewing a movie on how to go about purchasing a car, Mrs. Elizabeth Starewicz adds detailed information from her own personal experience during second hour Consumer Education. As Mr. Tom Sanders collects the General Business exam on balancing a checkbook, sophomore Karen Corsiglia chuckles after finding the test a snap. 70 Everyday Life Classes While working on the assigned problems in Accounting, junior Carolyn Hudec writes a note to junior Sandy Wolak asking for he lp with her balance sheet. With a flick of her wrist, junior Lori Benne wipes the chin of the doll while practicing for her future children. Child Development instructor Mrs. Linda Scheffer assists, points out the proper technique. Fridoy ■ weekend arrives Curriculum focuses on practical applications. Lazy Liz enrolled in Child Development for one semester. She thought it would help her learn how to control her bratty little brother. The assignments helped, but the time spent with the pre- school kids really gave her an idea of the responsibilities of being a parent. Dreaming Don walked into General Business yawning. His mind wandered as he began to endorse a check and figure it into his budget. He had to do workbook pages concerning depositing, withdrawing and writing checks, and working math problems. He also had to concentrate on the book ' s chapters and various types of problems. Family Relations was a beneficial class for Engaged Elaine to have taken. Although they discussed dating, she was more interested in the lectures on marriage ceremonies, money problems, in- laws, and children. She was also fascinated by the things she learned about divorce, separation, and death. Elaine had to do an oral term paper. She also listened to guest speakers including a county clerk, lawyers, and religious leaders. When the class was finished, she polished her ring and walked out with wedding bells ringing in both of her ears. Suzy Homemaker took Interpersonal Relations to learn more about herself and others. She learned about raising children, nutrition, housing, and ecology among other things. She read current magazine articles, gave oral reports on consumer and economic studies, and saw a lot of filmstrips to further her knowledge. Although she didn ' t plan on setting up house right away, the information proved useful. As the final bell rang, students abandoned the school quickly taking home the newly acquired knowledge and hopes for a fantastic weekend. Explanation of gross profit and expenses by sophomore Karen Corsiglia helps senior Tim Burbich understand budgeting. 72 Everyday Life Classes Money problems, being one of the many obstacles encountered during married life, can be solved in various ways. Searching for solutions are senior Susan Hriso and soph- omore Robyn Eisner during Family Relations. Calculations used to prepare a budget are being made by senior )im Cammarata dur- ing the quadrasonics unit in Accounting. Struggling with the last safety pin, junior Tammy Westerfield successfully diapers the " baby " as part of the unit on infants in Child Development. Everyday Life Classes 73 To understand the importance of the Black Sea as a trade outlet to the nearby countries, freshman Bill Featherly must first determine its location. Psychology experiments, for example being able to stay in the lines of a star while looking in a mirror, made up the class along with a variety of discussions and projects. Junior Dave Williams attempts to complete the trial with minimal errors and a quick time. Snowy ground and winter temperatures encouraged Project Biology instructor Mr. John Edington and juniors Mike Helms and Ashish Shah to hastily load the bus and be on their way to the sunny Keys of Florida. One sleeping bag and one duffle bag were all the Project Biology students were allowed to take on the trip over spring vacation. That seems to be enough of a load for senior Dave Mrvan to carry. 74 Expanding interests classes Saturday - restful bliss day From biology trips to ad analysis, students expand diverse interests Saturday. A day of restful bliss was a long awaited luxury for most students; however, some took advantage of this free day to catch up on their homework as they expanded on their interests outside of the classroom. Janice Joker enjoyed sleeping in for a change after having to wake up early five days a week for Project Biology, a zero hour class. Today she planned to finish up a comparative study of the Indiana Dunes and the Florida Keys. As she put the finishing touches on the paper, she reflected on what led up to this paper. She spent five and one half months preparing for the annual trip to the Keys over spring vacation by practicing snorkeling techniques and learning how to take and analyze environmental samples. This paper was a product of discovery in exploring the environment. Rick Etty decided to spend the day shopping for summer essentials. After taking Sales and Marketing, he understood the fundamentals of business. He looked through the advertisement section of the newspaper for a bargain. After learning about sales promotion and doing an ad himself, he had a basic knowledge of various sales techniques. When he found what he wanted, it was off to the store. With a knowledge of retailing, he wondered how much the price mark-up was among other things. The book supplemented by lectures taught him about store operations and management. After selecting the merchandise carefully, it was time to face the sales personnel. Fun Fred read the newspaper paying special attention to world affairs. With a year of World Expanding interests classes 75 Saturday - restful bliss day New humanities course renews interest in culture History under his belt, he could see how far certain countries have come. The year concentrated on European history with a touch of Egyptian history. The book, in addition to lectures, comprised most of the class along with audiovisual aids. Jolly Jan spent the day preparing an ethnic demonstration for Humanities, a new class. This project along with others including playing an instrument and doing artwork highlighted the class. Throughout the semester she focused on a combination of literature, history, music, art, and philosophy of various periods. All this information was assimulated at the end of each unit by an essay test. The projects combined with a collage of studies made for a After a discus sion on the powers during the World Wars, Mr. Don Kernahan waits for a response from sophomore Jim Milan. different kind of class. Kevin Ketchup finished talking to his mother about her childhood and began to write his own history for Introduction to Social Science. This along with other activities suggested in the book in addition to lectures and textbook reading gave him a broader scope of psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, geography, and various other social sciences. Lincoln Logs decided to psychoanalyze his little brother using the knowledge he gained in a semester of Psychology. With a little background in the theories of B.F. Skinner and Freudian psychology combined with the psychology of learning, remembering, forgetting, and child and animal training, he attempted to discover the true reasons behind his brother ' s behavior. As the day of expanding on their interests drew to an end, these six students looked forward to a late night of relaxation. In order to further explain his lecture, Mr. Tom Sanders illustrates the gross profit formula on the board for junior Greg Starret. As his six weeks ' project for Humanities, senior Rick Oros plays his guitar, demonstrating the music of the ' 60 ' s as the class studies the culture of this time period. 76 Expanding interests classes Given a little extra class time in Sales and wi,h a ma P of the world readily available Marketing, junior Peggy Powers completes for reference, sophomore Anita Opperma the day ' s assignment before the bell rings. studies the relationship between world powers in World History. f Expanding interests classes 77 6undoy- needed preparation Milk cartons provided more than a nutritious beverage tor Dimensional Design Practice is important for any talent, students.

Keeping their eyes focused on the conductor for the cut off point (front row) sophomores Sue El Naggar and Gena Chiaro; (middle row) Karla Paior and Terri Bame; and (back row) Kristy Vidovich and Kim Lorenzen practice for the Spring Concert. Staging the performance is just as important as acting it out. Sophomores Robin Stoner, Leslie Camino and Enrique Hanania and Dawn Smallman discuss the exact positions of the characters, scenery, and various props. 78 Talent Classes Practice perfects creative talents Sunday. The day moves seemingly slow for most students as they prepare for the upcoming week filled with homework assignments and test taking. For students interested in art, music, or drama, this is a time to brush up on their talent skills by perfecting a rough sketch, stretching their vocal chords, or rehearsing a skit. Basic Billy naturally chose Basic Art as one of his electives. Being a building block for the entire art program, this class briefly covered every aspect of art, from drawing to sculpting. As he sat out on the street corner drawing the stoplight, he wondered if he was destined for fame and fortune. In addition to sketching, Billy also learned the fundamentals of color combinations, shading, and perspective. With a final flourish of his pencil, he closed his sketch pad and journeyed to the nearest manhole. Sue Sketch set aside this free day to put the finishing touches on her ink drawing for Drawing and Painting II. After establishing a solid foundation in Drawing and Painting I, which covered media and techniques as well as pictorial composition and design, she culminated and refined her skills on an individual basis. As she added more lines to her sketch, she thought about the various techniques including impressionism, cubism, and abstraction and looked forward to working in oil, acrylic, and watercolor paints. Taking an opportunity for creativity and self-expression, Wet Willy enrolled in Printmaking. Today he planned the design for his next print. Incorporating the principles of good design, he drew up a print with good pictorial composition and strong colors. His next decision was which technique to use. He ruled out intaglio and silkscreen, but it was a toss up Talent Classes 79 Sunday- needed preparation With their voices lifted in unison, members of the 10th and 11th grade Choir, (front row) sophomores Pam Roberts, (second row) Caroline Paulson, Rebecca Schoop, Sharon Grambo, Kim Clouse; (third row) Lori Dernulc, Sandy Mason, Irene Fabisiak, and (back row) Lisa Gerdt, Sylvia Galante, Amy Johnson, Debbie Peterson, Carolyn Reppa, practice excerpts from " Carousel " for the Spring Concert. After scraping the excess ink from the While transcribing the measures of music in screen, senior Greg Van Der Way pulls back Music Theory, senior Julie Lanman carefully the mesh before removing his final print. rechecks each note to insure proper placement on the staff. 80 Talent Classes Whether picking up a sketch pad or warbling a song, teens form talents between linoleum block and wood cut. Carol Cutter sat in her workshop carving away at the clay that sat in front of her. After taking Dimensional Design, Carol acquired some useful tips on improving her sculpture. With a choice between the additive process, building with raw materials, and the subtractive process, carving material from an existing solid, she opted for the latter. As she pinched and pounded, the mass of clay began to take shape. Relatively uncreative and unartistic, Barry Blah took Art History to increase his understanding of this creative form. Today he worked on his research paper on a specific technique of his choice. In addition to researching styles and techniques, he increased his appreciation of art as he studied each period in relation to the culture of that time. As a way of reinforcing their knowledge, the class then traveled to the Chicago Art Institute to receive a first-hand look at art. With a strong desire to compose music, Carrie Chord enrolled in Music Appreciation. Besides studying the different forms and parts of music, she also studied theme and variation. Utilizing this information when the class attended the opera, " La Boheme, " she could literally pick apart each measure of a song. This stimulated Carrie ' s interest in music, so she decided to continue with Music Theory. Building upon her knowledge, she studied chords and chord formation. The basis of the class, however, was the idea behind music. Soon she would be ready to write her own songs. More involved in singing others ' songs, Helen Hum set aside this day to tune up her voice by practicing some songs from " Carousel " for the upcoming concert. The 10th and 11th Grade Choir, otherwise known as gorilla choir, had another opportunity to perform during a Christmas concert. The daily practice and opportunities to perform greatly increased Helen ' s vocal abilities. Moving up from 9th Grade Glee Club, Laura Lark found new horizons in 10th Grade Glee Club. With daily warm ups and practice, she could now carry a tune. This class was a break from the usual school day routine, but it was still hard work for those concerned with developing their singing talent. Melanie Music bursted into song as she strolled down the hall. For her, this was a prime opportunity to practice for Concert Choir. Besides gaining valuable performing experience, Melanie increased her skill in blending her voice with others. Melodramatic Mick stood in front of the mirror practicing his lines for the skit he had to do in Drama the next day. Besides performing various skits and plays, Mick learned and was tested on various dramatic terms and stage directions found in the textbook. Another dimension of the class was the projects on actors and plays including booklets and dioramas. He enjoyed taping a radio play and constructing a stage set up the most though. Talent is not inborn, but is made perfect with practice. For students involved in liberal arts, Sunday is a prime opportunity for perfecting their talents. For others, it is a day of much needed preparation. Fashionable shoes are a part of anyone ' s wardrobe. Freshman Karen Glass didn ' t realize they were also a part of Basic Art as she sketches the shoe ' s stitching.

Do you feel like all of your teachers got together and ganged up on you? This may have been the feeling if you were in a situation that was both a class and a club. Some examples of this were: Band, Orchestra, Drill Team, Ensembles, Crier, Paragon, Distributive Education (DE), Office Education Association (OEA), and Speech and Debate. Besides the tests and “normal " homework in these classes, one always seemed to be meeting deadlines for stories, practicing music, or memorizing routines, before, during, and after school. Most of these class-clubs also had some sort of a fundraiser such as selling sweatshirts, keychains, or barbeque tickets. The money that was made went toward the club ' s essentials such as bus fares for special trips, printing costs for the publication of the paper or yearbook, and the purchasing of new uniforms and equipment. " When you have a class that ' s a club you ' re always meeting time limits, " stated junior Nicki Davis. Classroom hours, during and after school become very important to certain organizations. Clubs where work must be done after school were the ensembles, which met two days a week for about an hour; Crier and Paragon, which held workshops after school to complete work for an upcoming deadline, and Drill Team and the Marching Band, which practiced throughout the summer for the numerous routines to be held in the fall months. But, along with hard work and extra hours, those involved always seemed to find time for fun. Paragon and Crier usually held parties celebrating birthdays or the end of a deadline. During the year when football and basketball season was over, the Drill Team had a break by not having to stay for sixth hour-the regular practicing period. Although class-clubs took up a lot of time by having to put in extra hours, they showed variety as compared to a regular class since they were a mixture of work and fun. Preparing for the annual Christmas concert, seniors Roxanne Paulson and Dawn Richardson practice " Deck the Halls " along with other members of Concert Choir. " Want to buy a DE sweatshirt? " asks Karl D ' Arcy, senior. Selling sweatshirts was only one of the many fundraisers DE sponsored during the year. Class-Clubs 83 Festivities on the Fourth of July were highlighted by the perfor- mance given by the Marching Band. Perfection stems from strict dis- cipline and many hours of prac- tice.

Keeping the band in time, Drum Major Carla Stockhouse, senior, guides the players and keeps them all together. 84 Band Orchestra Rules leave music with good note Rowdiness was usually achieved by the cheerleaders; however, the Marching Band was an essential element in boosting student morale. Along with boosting student spirit other bands such as Wind Ensemble, Concert Band and Orchestra gave students an outlet for their musical talents. " The Marching Band serves as the nucleus for the Pep Band, " explained Mr. Donald Ostopowicz, band director. The Varsity Band, which served as a trainer for seven members, provided individualized instruction for students who required additional practice and training before becoming a part of the Marching Band. At the end of the first semester, the Pep Band transformed into two separate bands— the Concert Band and the Wind Ensemble. According to Mr. Ostopowicz, the musicians were grouped according to their ability. Training skills for 45 participants were Precision and timing are essential, as juniors Steve Meeker and Mike Helms simultaneously slide their trombones and follow the sheet of music.

Band splits to moke better sounds developed in Concert Band; whereas, the 45 Wind Ensemble members were a body composed of the more experienced performers. One aspect of the band in contrast with last year ' s band was the discipline incorporated into the program. " In the beginning it was difficult to adjust to the new rules, " commented senior Diane Gluth, Drum Major. In addition to the other four bands, the Orchestra, under the direction of Miss )oan Summers also proved to be a main artery of the music generated by the students. Playing for graduation was one of the highlights of the year. The Orchestra, along with the Band, combined efforts to sell fruit during their annual fund raiser. The profits went toward new music, uniforms, and instruments. Each separate band provided students with the opportunity to pursue their interests and further develop their musical talents. Band Orchestra 87 At state all the ensembles also received first places. Not everyone can be- come an ensemble mem- ber. Music experience is mandatory, as the mem- bers must be in one of the choirs. At the beginning of the year students must try out by their talent and abil- ity in singing. Being able to sing in front of crowds and not become embarrassed is another good character- istic to have on your side when trying out. " If stu- dents work hard, give their time, effort, energy and tal- | ent to work towards a goal, they deserve to have a chance to become a member, " commented Mr. Fort. When passing by the choir room one Tuesday or Thursday morning and sounds of talented, energetic voices pulls you to the door of the room, you ' ll know that it ' s the en- sembles practicing. fflusic Qfoups shower with songs Singing in the shower is fine for many people, but for those interested in entertaining large groups, ensembles offers one outlet for this ener gy. Fifty-three select stu- dents released this energy before and after school by joining vocal music groups. The seven groups, include Sophomore Girls, Junior Girls, Senior Girls, Barbershop Quartet, Se- nior Girls Sextet, Mixed and Sophomore and junior Boys, were directed by Mr. Gene Fort, U.S. History teacher, and assisted by Mr. Richard Holmberg, Music Department chairman. " The purpose of being in an ensemble is to strengthen singing abilities, to appreciate music, to gain ability and confidence and to work together as a group, " explained Mr. Fort. Part of being a member of an ensemble was sing- ing for ladies groups, churches, fraternities, so- rorities or banquets. The money earned from these engagements was put to- wards the purchase of new choir music. When they were not singing for area ladies or church groups, they were usually busy practicing for upcoming concerts or contests. The annual Christmas and Spring concerts were presented to the public by the ensembles along with the different choir groups. Being in an ensemble also gave students the op- portunity to compete at lo- cal and state levels in mu- sic contests. All seven ensembles placed first at the local levels of the Northern Indiana School Band Orchestra Vocal As- sociation (NISBOVA). " Winning a first place en- courages the ensembles to work hard and do well at state, " explained Mr. Fort.

Victory entail extra hour When the bell rang at 2:40 p.m. at the end of a long day, most students had visions of racing out of school and catching a bit of enjoyment before the start of a new day. But for Speech and Debate members most days were spent after school practicing and researching. However, all this practice paid off, as five members made it to Nationals, which were held in Mobile, Al. on June 16- 20. This record of 5 individuals making it to Nationals ties the 1975 record. The 15 debate and 15 speech meets, which were held on Saturdays, got underway in October and ended in April. The Debate team, which consisted of about 25 members, was split up into three groups of novice, sub-varsity and varsity debators, depending upon their experience. As the regular season came to an end in late February, varsity members competed at the state meets in Kokomo, In. with hopes of qualifying for Nationals. Districts were held at Lafayette Jefferson High School to give members one last chance to capture a first and thus go on to Nationals. Junior Paul Komyatte captured a first at State in the Lincoln- Douglass debate. Mike Castellaneta, junior, also placed first in the Lincoln- Douglass debates at Debate Districts; thus, they both qualified. The Speech team which consisted of approximately 70 members placed an overall fourth out of 2,400 schools in the State Speech meet. Senior Janice Levy received a first in speech state, therefore, qualifying for Nationals. In the Congress Districts junior Jonathan Mintz placed first in Senate and junior Jeanine Gozdecki also placed first in Congressional House A. While dedicating their time after school, approximately 95 speech and debaters perfected their skills with practice, research, and more practice. Speech-Debate 91 Happy with the sound of the music, senior Rick Between homework and giving string bass lessons, Oros plays along with sophomore (enifer Baron junior David Min takes time out to play a piece for during one of her guitar lessons. his own enjoyment. " Here are your assignments for this week. Twenty chapters are to be read for Tuesday, your workbook assignment is due tomorrow, which is good review for the test Thursday, and your term- papers are, of course, due on Friday. " This was sometimes a typical assignment that a teacher gave students for the week. But even though this did seem like a lot of work, some students still found time to participate in an out- of-school class, such as art, dancing lessons, or a college prep class. The majority of students took classes specializing in a particular interest that they wanted to dev elop. " I ' m taking art lessons to improve my artistic ability and to increase my imagination, " explained junior Kelly Matthews. Although she enjoys art, she still felt that it was very time consuming. On the other hand, some students took beneficial classes to help them out with their schoolwork. junior Lisa Fitt participated in a SAT class to help her improve her score. " I need an extremely high SAT score to be admitted into a few universities I would like to attend, " explained Lisa. She didn ' t feel that these classes were interfering with her school work, but she did think that they were time consuming with other things. A different type of out-of-school class was teaching lessons instead of taking them. Junior David Min taught string bass lessons as a private instructor for other people. He enjoyed playing the bass, and besides teaching he also took lessons himself to improve his own playing. Many students took out-of-school classes for a lot of different reasons, but it was a way for them to obtain more skill in certain areas or extra help in school work. As a whole, most students just felt that it was worthwhile to take another course out of school. Broadening horizons 92 Out-of-school classes During her dance lesson, junior Lorianne Lutz listens as her instructor, Mrs. Phyllis Peyrot, explains the correct form to use at the bar. Besides taking art lessons from Mrs. Renee Nagle, junior Kelly Matthews offers her time to help with a group of younger children. Out-of-school classes 93 Work 1 tudie pay oil Everyone goes to school each day, and typically gets homework. Imagine having a job as part of this homework. For Distributive Education (DE) and Office Education Association (OEA) members this was nothing unusual. " All senior DE students have to have a job, " stated Mr. Leo Sherman, DE coordinator. The students could go out and find the job themselves or Mr. Sherman provided them with one. After acquiring the business experience, they used it in various competitions. With 26 DE members participating at State, senior Adele Webber received a first in the math section of the Apparel and Accessory category. Senior Mike Polyak placed first overall in the General Marchandising series for the state of Indiana, and went to the national conference in Miami, FI. June 21 to 26. DE members financed their trips, including Districts in Valparaiso and the State contest in Clarksville by having bake sales, sponsoring a dance, and selling Merrybells, candles and balloons. Like those who were in DE, OEA students also had to hold down a job, but in the secretarial field. Their experiences took seniors Renee Bossi, Jacki Orlandi and Sue Moran to State. Sue qualified for Naitonal in Minneapolis, MN in the receptionist competition, where she received a fifth. Money was also scarce for OEA. By having bake sales, selling carnations, silk roses and stuffed animals, they were able to meet their financial needs. Having a job as part of their school work, DE and OEA students not only gained valuable experience but also got a little extra spending money.

It takes a lot of hard work and cooperation from all 22 staff members and every hour classes, cries of " Happy Birthday, " " Merry Christmas, " and " Happy Halloween " can be heard coming from the Pub. As one can see, Paragon isn ' t like any ordinary class, since all tests and lectures are over in the first six weeks. Part of everyone ' s job to get the yearbook off to a good start is to get acquainted with terminology and style. Mrs. Nancy Hastings, adviser, explains to juniors Lynn Smallman, Pam Pilarczk, and Karen Kruzan how similar magazine and yearbook layouts are. one of the six photographers to produce a winning yearbook. The work for each upcoming yearbook begins in the summer. Before school began, eight editors at tended a journalism workshop at Ball State University in July. These students learned new and interesting ideas relating to themes and layouts. " Mostly, we practiced a lot, " stated senior Sue Block, Managing Editor. V ■ v ? iBV Without the guidance of a senior Even when a party is given to editor, juniors Patty Reddel and keep up staff morale, the Sally Powell polish off their yearbook is always on people ' s Homecoming spread. minds. Senior Diane McMorris, Editor-in-Chief, and Terri Long, Layout Editor, discuss the upcoming deadline together. During the school year, when monthly deadlines creep up, the Pub is " mass chaos, " exclaimed Mrs. Hastings. " Everyone is always getting on everyone else ' s back. " " Deadlines are a time when all hell breaks loose, " chuckled Sue Block. Although producing a yearbook isn ' t always " party time " or fun and games, it has its rewards, too. " You can always tell how good a yearbook is when you hear students ' reactions when they get them, " said Mrs. Hastings. fflore than a ela Making sure everything runs smoothly is just one part of senior Sue Block ' s job.

Paragon 97 Hard uiork lead to award , fun Staying late at the printer, brain storming for ideas with editors, selling ads and writing stories from interviews, were just some of the after school activities that Crier, staff members accomplished. " A lot of hard work is put into the paper during study halls and after school, " stated senior Suzie Strater. Crier staffers called themselves a family because cooperation among one another was necessary for a successful newspaper. " You have to be devoted to have a good paper, " expressed Barb Austen, senior. Crier received the Five Star Award given by the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA). This award, which was for the second semester, 1978-79 paper, is only given to 10 newspaper in this country. Deadlines were a big part of Crier, having to meet them throughout a two week period. " With all the deadlines we had, it was important that everyone did their job. If one person missed their deadline, the rest of the deadlines for that section fell apart, " explained Editor-in-chief, senior Jane Pieczykolan. To make up for the strenuous work of meeting deadlines all of time, the staffers occasionally took a break for some fun. Some of these days were the Blueberry Festival and Emily Dickenson Appreciation Day. On these days a party was given to salute this person or event or to just help celebrate a staffer ' s birthday. There was something different going on everyday. Changes in staff operation were hard to make, but Jane and senior Judy Stoddart, Managing Editor, worked for improvement. They decided to make a staff manual which included rules and guidelines to help the paper and staff run more smoothly. So even though late night sessions and after school work was usually necessary, Crier made up for it with their breaking away days.

" After calling a meeting for 40 members, I was really discouraged because only eleven showed up, and out of the eleven only five were willing to work on the project we were discussing, " stated senior Debbie Markovich, Student Government President. Student Government was not the only organization plagued with this problem. A lot of students signed up for different clubs, but when it came to actually doing a job, students proved scarce, junior Heidi Langendorff, Swimming Girls Timing Organization (GTO) Vice- President said, " there are 60 swimming GTO members, but we can never get any more than half to show up for the meets and meetings. " One reason that prevented some students from showing up was that clubs never did anything. " I did belong to several clubs freshman, sophomore, and junior year. I ' m not in any now because they just seemed to take up a lot of my time with pointless activities, " stated senior Michelle Mehalso. While some clubs might have sponsored few activities, many clubs tried to keep their members active. " Besides timing and cheering on the wrestling team, we had a record breaking $87 bake sale that will help to boost the moral for next years members. With more activities like that, Wrestling GTO should continue to grow stronger, " explained Terri Long, Wrestling Vice President. 100 With a look of determination, sophomore Accurate scoring is essential to a bowling Ron Pasko bowls a strike to help better his league as senior Martin Elkmann tallies his score. teammate ' s points. Individuals set, achieve goals, Clubs come in all sizes and shapes, with each setting specific goals they wish to achieve. While many clubs set goals such as spon- soring two field trips or planning three bake sales, still others set a goal of receiving community rec- ognition and setting records. Two Chess Club members, with the help of their sponsor Mr. Jeff Craves, chemistry teacher, set a specific goal -to break a world chess record. Beginning on Dec. 28, seniors Ilya Schwartzman and Stan Zyg- munt broke the world ' s record for playing chess continuously for 168 hours. These two members re- ceived front page coverage in the Sun Journal and were featured on the 6 p.m. Channel 7 ABC TV news report, along with being recog- nized in the Guiness World Book of Records. “The thing that I was the most surprised about was that I was able to stay up all that time. I ' m just glad for the whole team. A lot of people thought we were being big mouthed before we did it. We proved them wrong. " said Ilya. The $1,100 raised in the marathon was the team ' s biggest money raiser and went toward their trip to Na- tionals held in Philadelphia. The Chess Team ' s nine active members practiced weekly, and were involved in a game at least once or more a week. They competed in inner squad matches and received invitations to play against other schools. " Many teams come over for friendly games to expose their players to good competition, " commented Mr. Graves. " Everyone knows that we are the best. " The team had eliminations and board rankings which determined the best chess players. Another club that set a certain goal was the Bowling Club. Their objective was to gain experience while having fun. Sixty active Bowling Club mem- We did it ! 102 Chess, Bowling Clubs bers met at the Munster Lanes each Tuesday at 3 p.m. There they paid $2.60 each to cover the cost of the lanes. Of that $2.60, 25 cents went toward the trophy fund. At the an- nual banquet held in May, and av- erage of 25 trophies were awarded to bowlers. Trophies were given for many outstanding efforts, including out- standing individual and team per- formance, as well as the best won- loss records. Bowling in teams of four to save time, it took two teams about 45 minutes to bowl one game, ac- cording to Mr. Jeff Graves, who also sponsors Bowling Club. Indi- vidual and team standings were posted in the Commons the next day at school. This method " in- creased competativeness, " accord- ing to Mr. Graves. Through Chess and Bowling Club, students found time to prac- tice their hobbies and skills and were even able to set individual goals. " Both activities were a con- structive outlet for student energy, " explained Mr. Graves.

These were just some of the experiences of the Scuba Club and Outdoors Club members which were felt during their expeditions. Diving into the ice cold water of several parks and beaches was the fun and easy part of Scuba Club. Even though problems were encountered, they always found a way to dive. “The good dive sites are far away and transportation then becomes a problem, " stated Mr. Jeffery Graves, Scuba Club sponsor and Chemistry teacher. Lack of money and the weather were sometimes drawbacks. There were no fund-raisers, so the members occassionally had to pay for part of their own equipment fee. The only thing that some members couldn ' t help was that they had to have a certified diver ' s card in order to dive anywhere. All throughout the year, the Outdoors Club was planning and going on little excursions into the wilderness whenever they could. A winter freeze-out at Devils Lake in Wisconsin, sleigh rides, tobogganing, October hay rides and horseback riding were all part of the many activities outdoors. A big increase in members got the group active. “We are very active, more so than last year, I guess that ' s why we ' re doing more things, " explained Nancy Keil, Outdoors Club President. " We like to have fun . . . outdoors, " summed up Nancy.

Reward: Many fun activities, good times, and satisfaction. If this is appealing, then become a member of Student Government or the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). Eighty-seven students took up this offer as they worked to improve the school through Student Government and PTSA. Student Government, consisting of 81 members, including 40 Pride Committee (PC) members, 40 Class Executive Council (CEC) members and the Student Body President (SBP) organized most of the school and student body activity. The CEC mainly concentrated on organizing class projects or activities, such as floats, the homecoming dance, and bake sales. The PC represented the student body. They discussed and advised, along with faculty members, the solutions concerning student body problems such as trying to stimulate pride, spirit, and morale. Dr. David Dick, principal, and junior Ed Gomez, second semester SBP, have added to the changes in Student Government. Ed explained that " Dr. Dick wanted to form a nucleus of students, such as a pep block. This then would change us from having a rowdie class spirit to having a more unified class spirit. " As the newly elected SBP, Ed hoped to have stricter attendance records for members and more organization. " I also hoped to increase the power of the students by setting up a suggestion box, " commented Ed. Finishing her year term as SBP in January, senior Debbie Markovich acted as advisor to the new president during second semester. " Basically the first semester was quite successful, even though we didn ' t have much cooperation from or authority over the student body, " explained Debbie. " Changes definitely have to be made, but the process is slow, " she added. Student Government wasn ' t the only group working for school improvement. PTSA was formed in order for students to participate in what goes on at school. The student membership was low partly because " many students don ' t know about it, " explained senior Cathy Reppa, treasurer of PTSA. Many activities were planned during the year. The annual rummage sale and bake sales provided the funds to pay for their monthly parent newsletter. The group also worked on starting academic achievement awards which would recognize outstanding students. Monthly meetings to discuss problems were held with administration, parents, teachers and any interested students. As the year drew to a close, the want ad came out in May for Student Government elections ready to entice new participants along with the old, still-interested members to improve the school atmosphere and community.

Letters symbolize hard work, loyalty It ' s rather difficult to communi- cate without words. Words are composed of letters; therefore, let- ters are essential to any person ' s life. However, some letters are used for more than just making words. Taking on an air of dignity and a desire for pride, the letters " M " or " A " are rewarded sym- bolically as a sign of hardwork and loyalty. Both Lettermen and Let- terwomen dedicate their time to training, trying to be the best they could to receive the rewarded " M " . By selling programs at games and sponsoring a dance, the Let- termen and Letterwomen raised money for their annual athletic banquet. " Since they are a service club, if any unseen emergencies came up they helped out. " ex- plained Mr. Niksic, Lettermen sponsor. Instead of the " M " , National Honors Society (NHS) preferred the " A " . Sweating it out over books was just part of the NHS student ' s life. They attended the Nutcracker Suite in December, and helped other students by tutoring them with their schoolwork. Like NHS, Quill and Scroll was awarded to students who achieved high grades, and had made a sig- nificant contribution to Journalism Department. They raised funds to help send journalism students to summer workshops at Ball State. They also helped organize the journalism banquet in mid-May. Honors were not easy to come by. Hours were spent running laps or working on homework. Goals were just the same for the athlete and the student, working as hard as they could for the " M " or " A " . Trying to raise funds for Letterwomen, senior Lisa Scott collects the dance money, while Mr. Bawden checks to make sure they are Munster students.

Senior Barb Austen applies her make-up. As active members of Drama Club, freshman Mitizi Lorentzen, and senior Doug Katz perform in the production of Sweeney Todd. 110 Drama Drama: not just on act Behind scenes; as important as stage Nervously waiting for his opening cue, the actor glances across the stage as a props crew member runs to place that all important string of pearls on the table. Suddenly the lighting crew members flip the switch and the curtain rises as Drama Club members finalize another production. Acting is not the only duty a member of the Drama Club can perform, even though " to be in a play you must be in Drama Club, " stated senior Janice Levy, Drama Club and Thespian president. Behind the scenes work is just as important as the work done by the people on stage. " Publicity and Costumes are crews in which other members can participate, " according to English teacher Ms. Linda Aubin, Drama Club sponsor. Other members can make signs or work on another crew such as Lighting, Props, or Make-up. Fund raising is another activity for members. Because of the ticket and candle sales, and the patrons, the production of Sweeney Todd, which cost $1200, was self- supporting. Sweeney Todd was performed on Nov. 16 and 17 and The Wizard of Oz was given on Feb 8 and 9. Drama Club members who earn enough points become Thespians. " Thespians are the honorary group of the Drama Club, " explained Ms. Aubin. To become a Thespian one must put in ten hours of work for every point earned. A minimum of 10 points is needed. In other words, a minimum of 100 hours of work must be put in toward the play before one becomes a Thespian. An actor or actress may get from zero to eight points. It is possible for a major actor or actress to receive eight, while a minor actor or actress could earn up to five. It also depends on how hard one works. There are about 85 Drama Club members, and of that 85 approximately 25 belong to Thespians Troop 2861. An initiation ceremony held at the end of the year is to honor incoming Thespians and to pick new officers, explained Janice. To become a member of Drama Club, one must pay their annual dollar dues and be " willing to work, " said Ms. Aubin. Members must also keep their grades up. " The reason for this is because being in the Drama Club often takes lots of time, and the play co mes after school work, " said Ms. Aubin. Even though all the members of Drama Club weren ' t actors, many put in as much time and effort, and without them no productions would be possible. -L A. w A m! 1 l 1 r wi Ti.jJT " J M M Kk wT’v ' i B Ail ' 1 1 i Drama Club-(front row) Kerry Connor, jenny Olds, Sandy Polis, jackie Hibler, Kathy Mills, Lisa Nisevich, Mariana jacobo, janice Levy. l- arr y Lanoff, Barb Austen, Lena Checroun, Jeanette Custat, Carleen Burch, Pam Pilarczyk, )o Ann Wrobel, Lori Dernulc, Nina Sherman, Vesna Trikich, Scott Yonover.

Club member, junior Paula Opatera. Clubs cross borders into new experience Many students dreamed about going to foreign countries and speaking the language. The closest many got to this was belonging to American Field Service (AFS) or the French Club. " Many of the AFS activities were sponsoring foreign students. International Night, Christmas in Countries and International Weekend, " explained Mr. Stephen Wildfeuer, AFS sponsor. Students from the U.S. and foreign students got together to talk about their own customs and experiences. Finland exchange student Marjo Vierros spent her senior year at Munster, while senior Leane VanDerWey stayed in Germany last year. " The trip was well worth the effort; it was a rewarding new experience, " stated Leane. French Club expanded the knowledge of its members in different cultures. To get better acquainted with France, the French Club visited the Art Institute and the Magic Pan Creparie in Chicago. They also held pastry and cheese parties during their class. In order to raise money to go on field trips, they sold Christmas stockings, and held bakesales. Even though some people never got the chance to visit foreign countries and talk to their natives, AFS and French Club helped bring the country, its people and its customs to Munster.

The same held true for clubs as well. The money raised by clubs went for trips, activities, uniforms, and sending members to competition. In order to raise money, clubs did everything from selling cookies and sweatshirts to staying up all hours of the night in marathons. " The money we raised we used to purchase new volleyball uniforms and equipment, " said senior Janet Nottoli. Probably the most common fund raiser was the bake sale, although many teams stayed up for hours to participate in marathons. Another common money raiser was sponsoring after-game dances. Whether it be for funding formal dances, or financing their activities, many classes and clubs held dances during the year. Selling ads and carnations were a few examples of fund raisers shared by those classes that weren ' t school funded. Both Crier and Paragon spent hours trying to come up with extra money to help them put out the paper and yearbook. " Although selling ads is a bother, it is necessary and worth while, " stated senior Mary Norris. Fund raisers were easier said than done. With the prices of everything going out of sight, club members depended on other students to go to the dances, to buy their cookies at lunch, and to help out with all of the other fund raisers. Financially students made everything all right. By selling a sweatshirt to senior Pam DeRolf, senior Adele Webber helps DECA earn money to send their students to District, State, and National competition. Raising extra money to send Chess Team members to Nationals, seniors Troy Hodson and Stan Zygmunt participate in a 168 hour chess marathon. Something that everyone looks forward to are Valentine ' s carnations, which are a way for Crier to earn some extra money. Senior Deda Shoemaker receives a carnation from a friend. To help finance trips to meets, junior Ken Powell, sophomore Brian Mathews, junior Mike Castellaneta, and sophomores Mark Levine and jeff Walcutt help out with the annual Speech and Debate chicken barbeque.

Spirit falls and rises with success of teams Students walked quietly down the hall, heading toward the field- house. Glad to get away from class, if only for a half hour, the students headed toward the pep session as sounds of Band music echoed in the hallways. As the students fil- tered into the bleachers, the Drill Team members and Flag and Rifle Corps practiced their routines one last time before the Pep session began. Suddenly the Band broke into " Munster Mustangs " as the cheerleaders ran onto the floor. The pep leaders were ready to be- gin their job of raising spirit. The main spirit leaders were the cheer- leaders. Freshman, junior varsity and varsity cheerleaders practiced every Wednesday morning at 7 a.m. Along with practices, parades and hosting pep rallies, the cheer- leaders also included participating in sports banquets on their agenda. Money was raised by selling carna- tions, mums, candy, seat cushions and holding car washes, dances and cheerleading clinics. " While out on the floor cheering, I was given a sense of pride at being able to support our athletic teams, " commented junior Cheryl Morgan. Some of the cheering came from one section of the bleachers-the Pep Club, and all the rest came from parents, the opposing team and other students. The main pur- pose of Pep Club was to try to im- prove the general lack of spirit in the school. " Spirit seemed to fall and rise with the success of the teams, " explained Rohs struqqle to raise school spirit Spirit leaders 117 DRILL TEAM— (front row) Diane Falusi, Me- linda Pieters, Lynn Smith, Mary Ann Fabi- siak, (anet Nottoli, Patty Etling, Nancy Hanus.

Spirit leaders strive to spark enthusiasm Some of the cheering came from one section of the bleachers— the Pep Club, and all the rest came from parents, the opposing team and other students. The main pur- pose of Pep Club was to try to im- prove the general lack of spirit in the school. “Spirit seemed to fall and rise with the success of the teams, " explained senior Jean Cerajewski. The Pep Club was at all the games supporting the Mus- tangs and getting the fans rowdied up for a victory. Half-time festivities included the Drill Team, Flag and Rifle Corps all performing their routines to the snappy music of the Marching Band. The Flag and Rifle Corps prac- ticed sixth hour along with the Drill Team. “They seem to be a team and work together well, " com- mented junior Lorianne Lutz. Pa- rades were also a part of the Flag and Rifle Corps yearly activities, along with car washes and other fund raisers. Kicking up their legs as if they were a part of the Radio City Music Hall ' s Rockettes, the Drill Team practiced every day during 6th hour. The Drill Team always had some creative skit or routine made up for the pep rallies and half- times. Even when there was a lack of spirit, the Drill Team was still there boosting the Mustangs mo- rale. “It ' s discouraging to have to perform to blocks of empty bleachers, " explained junior Karen Kruzan, Drill Team member. Bake sales and the selling of minature shoe and sandal key rings brought money into the Drill Team ' s trea- sury so that they could purchase new uniforms. Even though spirit had been a problem, the cheer- leaders, Pep Club, Drill Team, Flag and Rifle Corps kept the Mustangs and fans going strong. With all those spirit leaders trying hard to boost spirit— how could we go wrong? fteths struggle to raise school spirit Spirit leaders 119 SWIMMING GTO-(front row) Pam Vukovich, Dianna Strange, Nancy Hanus, Heidi Langendorff, Colette Meyer, Vickie Stevenson, Anita Webber, Amy Zucker.

Goal: to boost athlete ' s morale " Shhh . . . pass me the roll of toilet paper. " " Hang up that sign, and don ' t forget to decorate that tree over there and put a lot on that one. " " Hurry up! I think I hear someone coming. " Decorating athletes ' houses with toilet paper in order to raise spirits was just one of the many responsibilities of the Girls Timing Organization (GTO). GTO was divided into three groups. They were track, swimming, and wrestling. Each group had its own vice-president. The president, senior Laura Winkler, was in charge of the three groups. To further help things to run smoother, GTO was aided by their sponsor, Mrs. Doris johnson, English teacher. Each of the three groups attempted to raise the athlete ' s morale. They did this by decorating lockers with streamers and confetti, and often by writing secret admirer notes. " These secret admirer notes were covered with perfume and contained sentimental poems or sayings, " explained junior, swimming vice- president Heidi Langendorff. One job of the members was to time. " The main job of track GTO is to time, measure distances, keep official records and hand out ribbons, " commented junior Karen Kruzan. Swimming GTO members kept times and wrote down the finishing places, along with keeping records. The wrestling GTO ' ers also kept scores, and often " threw in the towel, " signaling the end of the wrestling match. In order to buy new equipment and paint to decorate signs and posters, the three different groups held bake sales. " We used the money for shirts and extra toilet paper, " commented Heidi. The porch lights suddenly flashed on outside the house and the group, having used 33 rolls of toilet paper, scattered as fast as possible.

HtfTIC OF MCI hile many schools stop W trying to achieve per- fection in sports once they win a sectional or conference title, Mun- ster shines apart from the rest. In their quest for big- ger and better achieve- ments, the Mustangs pulled off some unprecedented records which definitely made athletics a sporting affair. The Football Team once again won the Lake Suburban Conference title, the seventh time in ten years. They also gained a berth in the State playoffs, which was a first in the school ' s history. The Girls Cross-Country team came from a 1977 winless record to finishing second in State. The Boys Cross Country team went to Semi-State, marking it as a first, as they overcame regional competition. The Girls Golf Team won the Sectional for the first time. Not only this, but they also set a Sectional record with 393 points. Aside from the organized sports, intra- murals and recreational athletics made their way into students ' lives. Whether it be participating in an intra- mural volleyball match, a game of ra- quetball, or a daily jog, those in non-or- ganized sports fulfilled their own personal goals. With all of these achievements behind us, the future holds only more opportu- nities to lay solid foundations for the future. A Sporting Affair 122 A Sporting Affair Though there is no outside competition or recog- nition, 12 intramural volleyball teams use their amateur abilities to have a good time, along with getting some excercise. Warming up before the meet, freshman Stepanie Johnson works on her chipping. In order to help his relay team at the swim meet against Highland, senior Mario Fossa dives quickly off the starting block. A Sporting Affair 123 Behind euerq qood game- a good practice Behind all of the glory, trophies, and fame of the actual game lies many hours of practice, practice, practice! The defending State Champion Boys Swim team practiced twice a day, once in the morning and once in the after- noon. “We swam a total of eight miles a day to build our endurance, " stated co- captain Doug Bombar, senior. Doug added, " we swam every meet of the sea- son tired, then towards the end of the season we cut the distance so we swam the last meets super rested. " Many times the practice not only built endurance, but recreated game experi- ences. " Basketball practices were set up so that game type situations were created. The drills developed the motor movements and coordination. " stated senior Jim Dedelow. The intensity of a practice changed from sport to sport, but in most cases, a tough practice was inevitable for the athlete. " The thing I dislike about tennis practice was the shuffles, " commented senior Pam Thomae. Dedelow added that the toughest part of basketball prac- tice was the " montonous drills " . Com- paring wrestling practices to meets, ju- nior Jim Such stated, " practices were harder, but during both the athlete gets worn out. " Doug Bombar summed it all up by saying, " achievements done in practice should equal the athlete ' s desired goals he wants to obtain during the meet. " Many long hours of hard practice are behind the actual meet. Juniors Nick Pokrifceak and Jim Such concentrate on refining the takedown move. People see basketball players on the floor for an hour and a half without realizing the many hours spent in practice. Senior Jeff Wulf works on his in- side game as he practices a lay-up. 124 Practice, Practice, Practice Poise, concentration, and muscle control are nec- essary for a gymnast ' s success. Sophomore Mara Candelaria demonstrates all three as she attempts a front walkover in her floor excercise. Ik Football practice does not end with the last game, as weight lifting goes on year-round to keep mus- cles toned. Lending a helping hand to senior |ohn Lanman, senior |im Sakelaris positions the weights to help in the lift. Perfecting his serve is an essential part of practice for attaining a victory in the upcoming match for senior |ohn Brodersen. Practice, Practice, Practice 125 Awaiting the serve from his Lowell opponent, Rick Palmer, sophomore, prepares to return it cross court, while his partner, sophomore Steve Walcutt stands on the service line to call the shot " in " or " out " . With a look of determination, senior John Brodersen attempts a difficult drop shot from the baseline against his Griffith opponent. Against a powerful Bishop Noll opponent, freshman Hal Morris gets ready to blast back a forehand. Hal went on to win his match. Boys succumb to Highland at Regionals Enthusiastic team unexperienced in match play W ith many long hours of practice, the Boys Varsity Tennis team went into the season " inexperienced but enthusiastic, " explained senior Reed Oslan, captain. The team only had three returning lettermen from last year ' s squad, which placed second at Semi-State. The team ' s inexperience showed in the first match, as the Netters went down to Valparaiso 4-1. As the season progressed however, " the team steadily improved to championship caliber, " commented Coach Ed Musselman, algebra teacher. The goals for the team, according to Coach Musselman, were to win Conference and Sectional championships and to defend their title at the LaPorte Invitational. Of their goals, only the Sectional crown was acquired. Receiving awards for the team were senior Reed Oslan, Most Valuable Player and co-PHD, along with junior Mark Ignas; )ohn Brodersen, senior, Most Improved; and freshman Hal Morris, Most Valuable Freshman. The Netters went into the tough LaPorte Invitational rated as the underdog, but the team rose to the occasion handing the top ranked LaPorte Slicers their only defeat of the season. " The team came to its full potential against LaPorte, and personally I felt it was the best overall victory mentally, knowing we could beat the best, " reflected senior Bill Baker. The squad lost the final match of the Invitational to Concord 0-5. With the match in the final set, senior Bill Baker unleashes a powerful forehand to his Bishop Noll adversary. Bill and his partner went on to win the match 7-5, 4-6, 6-4. As he rips through a back dtnd, captain Reed Oslan, senior, chalks up another victory ' to add to his 14-2 season.

Compiling an 11-5 dual meet record, the Netters also grasped their hands around a Sectional championship with defeats over Hammond Tech and Morton 5-0 and over highly regarded Bishop Noll also 5-0. " The entire team really wanted to prove something and they did against Noll, " explained Oslan. At the individual Conference meet, two of the Netters left with medals; Oslan capturing one at first singles and Brodersen corraling the other at the second singles spot. The team ' s reign over the Lake Suburban Conference, which spanned six years from 73 until 78, came to an end as they went down in defeat to a surprising Highland team. The loss of the Conference crown is an example of the team ' s sub-standard performance. Coach Musselman commented, " Each team begins with its own identity and it evolves as the season progresses. The boys didn ' t win Conference, but they showed a lot of determination. " As the season came to an abrupt end for the Tennis Team after another loss to Highland at Regionals, Coach Musselman concluded, " I felt about the season as the team did, we won a Sectional championship and several players got a chance to play. All in all I was very proud. " Boys Tennis 129 While playing second singles against Calumet, junior Mark Ignas prepares to hit a forehand to his foe in order to capture a win for the team.

Sometimes the team we were running against would get first and second place, but we would win the meet because we had depth, " stated senior Bill Paulson. For the first time, the Boys Cross Country team advanced to Semi-State, never before going beyond Regionals. They captured third place in Sectionals fourth in Regionals, and twelfth in Semi- State. “We had a very successful season, " stated junior Mike Etling. There were many reasons tor their success. One was the increase of members, which went up from 12 to 25. Another was their ability. " All the runners were about equal, " explained Mike. Still another reason was “our coach; we had a great coach, " according to Bill and other members of the team. referring to Mr. Jesse Gomez, Purdue University Calumet Campus senior. The team was separated into two divisions. The top ten runners were Gold and the others were Red. “I don ' t like junior varsity and varsity divisions. I think of the Red team as a second varsity, " commented Mr. Gomez. The Red team ran at the majority of the meets; the Gold team ran only the invitationals and the more competitive meets. “If the Gold team ran too many races, we would have burned out, " explained Mike. Tom Figler, sophomore, received the Most Improved Runner Award, while the Pride, Hustle, and Desire Award went to Etling.

The 12 member Cross Country team left school after the Highland pep assembly, their destination was Indianapolis. Once there, the girls had little time to themselves. They were in bed by 9:30 p.m. in order to get ready for their big day when they could finally get some recognition for their hard work. The next morning the girls ran a hilly course at Indiana University. With their winless record of two years ago behind them and an 8-1 record under their belts, they finished second, just behind defending State champion, South Port. " The girls and I felt that we ran our best times of the year at State, but we just got beat by a better team, " stated Mr. Robert Maicher, Girls Cross Country coach and math teacher. The coach went on to explain that the State meet was not Indiana High Scool Athletic Association (IHSAA) sanctioned, but was merely an invitational that took two weeks to qualify for and encompassed girls from the whole state. The regional competition began one week before State took place. Coach Maicher believed that, " the competition began one week before State took place. Coach Maicher believed that, " the competition was harder at Regionals because of the more balanced teams. " At Regionals in Elkhart, " the girls ran poorly; we were disappointed, " stated Mr. Maicher. Because of the poor showing at Elkhart, the coach believes that the girls ran better at State. Although the girls missed reaching their goal of winning State by one place, " we had a good season, " explained senior Kathy Czapczyk, co-captain. Locally, three teams gave the girls some competition such as Bishop Noll, Highland, and Crown Point, but " Illinois is far superior in numbers and talent than Indiana, " stated Mr. Maicher. " We had talent, an obtainable goal, and we worked very hard. These all contributed to our successful season, " concluded Coach Maicher. Before the big race against Merrillville, sophomore Melanie Cigler separates herself from the rest of the team to psych up and to stretch out her muscles. She helped her team beat Merrillville, 15-50.

And so went the story of the Girls Golf Team. " Our goals were to have better than a .500 record and place in the top three teams at Sectionals. We met both, " expressed Coach Whiteley. With eight underclassmen on the team, the girls won their first Valparaiso Sectional. " We all played exceptionally well at Sectionals, " explained Most Valuable Player, Kelly Chapin, sophomore. Kelly went into a sudden death play-off for medalist and parred the hole that her opponent boggied. At Regionals, the girls finished eighth out of nine teams. " We were disappointed, but it was a good experience, " commented the coach. The La Porte Regional is one of the toughest in the state. " Two teams from our region finished first and second at the State meet, " added Coach Whiteley. During the season, the record of 8-4 topped last year ' s of 6-6. " We probably have the toughest section in the state; all four of our losses were from teams around here. But we did avenge our loss to Merrillville at Sectionals, " commented Whiteley. The team ' s play was consistent and had depth. " If someone had a bad day there was usually someone else there to pull us through, " stated Kelly. We didn ' t over practice and I didn ' t put a lot of pressure on them which probably accounts for our good season, " concluded Coach Whiteley.

Although the season did not start out on the right foot for the boys with a stunning defeat to Valparaiso, 7-10. " The boys went into the game cocky, ranked seventh in the state, and they displayed some bad tackling, " stated Head Coach John Friend, Athletic Director. But it wasn ' t all the team ' s fault, the coaching had something to be desired, " he continued, " the team was looking too far ahead in the season, " explained senior Mark Brickman, referring to the squad ' s only regular season loss. The loss to Valparaiso ignited a flame in the team and inspired the boys to acquire a play-off birth. " After the loss we knew we had to win every remaining game to even have a chance at a play- off spot, " commented co-captain Jon Pupillo, senior. " Ever since eighth grade, when we started playing together, we wanted to be the first team to make it to the play-offs, " explained co-captain George Dremonas, senior. Homecoming provided a spark in the middle of the season as the ' Stangs defeated Chicago Simeon, one of the best Chicago Public League Schools, 43- 8.

This is the closest to perfect football as possible, " stated Coach Friend. “Also this squad harbored some really smart football players along with a whole lot of natural ability, " the coach continued. This was reflected by the overall record, 9-2 and the capture of the team ' s seventh LSC championship in ten years. The defensive squad only allowed 51 points to be scored; the fewest in history. Individual marks were also obtained. Seven Mustangs gained All Conference Honors including junior Clark Labitan, halfback; seniors Bill Howarth, quarterback; Ken Orlich, end; jim Sakelaris, tackle and |ohn Lanman, center; all of the offensive team; and senior Bill Callis of the defensive squad. Both Howarth and Orlich made the United Press International (UPI) All State First Team, while Lanman obtained Associated Press (AP) All State honors on the second team. Howarth also was selected for Indiana ' s Top 33 Team, which according to Coach Friend, " is the hardest All State team a football player can make. " The Top 33 Team is a squad composed of the top 33 high school players in the state. It was truly a gratifying individual season for some of the ' Stangs top gridders, according to Coach Friend. But the winnings ways came to an end for the team, as they fell in the first round of the play-offs to Hobart, 30-35. " We made too many mistakes and were out-manned, but Bill (Howarth) did a great job, " commented Coach Friend. Howarth completed 23 of 41 passes for 248 yards and 3 touchdowns.

You can still play! All you need is a skillful trainer and a lot of tape. Many athletes with slight injuries can still participate in their athletic event. Taping is a popular practice among those athletes. " Twisted ankles are the most common injury that needs to be taped, " commented sophomore Scott Spongberg, trainer. Other injuries in- clude bruised ribs, sprained wrists, sore knees and pulled ligaments. Taping may seem like an easy job but many athletes are particular about their tape. Senior Jon Pupillo would not allow anyone but Mr. Dennis Haas, wrestling coach and Middle School teacher, tape his ankles. Mr. Steve Wroblewski, math teacher, and sophomores Scott Spong- bert and Stan Skawinski are the " tapers. " Stan and Scott spent a week at the Uni- versity of Miami (Ohio) trainers camp in order to become trainers. " We learned how to tape correctly, " stated Stan, " If an injury is taped wrong it could damage the athlete more, " he continued. In addition to taping, heat rub, whirl- pools and ice are used to alleviate pain. Taping is utilized in most sports. The amount of tape used per year is about 38,400 yards, enough to cross the foot- ball field 384 times. Sprained ankles, the most common injury requir- ing attention, are handled with ease by sophomore Stan Skawinski. With the tools of his trade at his side, sophomore Stan Skawinski keeps senior Lisa Scott laughing while he begins his taping job.

" By the end of the season the girls were primed, " he added. The goals of the team included a top place in conference and completing. Sectionals. The former goal was accomplished with a second in Conference; however, the team was defeated in the first round of Sectionals. " We were really disappointed by the loss at Sectionals, especially because of the mix-up with Janet ' s number, " stated Rene Gray, manager, referring to the incorrect entry of senior Janet Nottoli ' s number. The girls would have been forced to forfeit had they not lost. " We just played average, " commented senior Lisa Scott. " We didn ' t play up to our best potential. " " The Sectional officials took over the game— the girls were crushed mentally, " explained Coach Shinkan. During the season the Spikers performed equal to their opponents, compiling a 13-12 record. " If the team we were against played badly, we played badly. If they played well, we played well, " stated Coach Shinkan. He stated, the toughest competition came from Illinois due to the fact that they practiced all year round. Seniors seemed to lead the team effectively, according to Coach Shinkan. This was reflected by the senior sweep of awards. The Most Improved Player Down 11-12, junior Amy Kierman intently serves the ball hoping to even up the score.

They swam the whole year without any personality conflicts of " I want to be the best, " according to Ms. Betty Leibert, coach. " There is a lot of pressure put on a State Champion team. The pressure can be good and bad. It can make the girls work harder, but it also can create problems within the team, " stated Ms. Leibert. The girls finished with a 7-3-1 record. " This year we had the toughest schedule in years, " commented the coach. Area teams that posed tough competition were Bishop Noll, Highland, and Crown Point. " Some of the area schools have gotten better over the years, but then we were not as strong as we used to be, " added Ms. Leibert. Along with swimming against area schools, the girls also swam against Ben Davis, Elkhart Central, South Bend Clay and Lafayette Jefferson. Ms. Leibert considered these schools the toughest in the state. At Sectionals the girls captured the first place crown. " Bishop Noll seemed as though they would give us the biggest threat before the meet started, but they had a relay team disqualified and Highland finished second, " explained Coach Leibert. Six girls and one alternate qualified for the state meet, these girls included senior co-captains Linda Drewniak and alternate Jan Heinz, junior Debbie Dye, sophomores Leslie Doyle and Kathy Smith, and freshmen Julie Hager and Pam Selby.

They placed first in every event except two, " said the coach. " Our goal at the beginning of the season was to place as high as possible at the state meet, which we did, " added Ms. Leibert. " With the pressure off of us, there was a lot more spirit within the team, " commented Linda. " There is room for improvement in any team, ours was no different. As a whole, the season went well; the girls worked tremendously hard, but of course the times could have been bet- ter, " concluded Coach Leibert. 14S Girls Swimming As the race goes down to the wire, senior Jan Heinz comes up for air as she begins the final kick of fhe 200 yard Medley Relay.

" We have a solid program, and of course, we have good coaches, all the way down the line. We build the kids to their best potential; it ' s not just natural talent, " explained Coach )on Jepsen, Boys Swimming Coach and Physical Education teacher. Many people may not have bought that explanation after seven State crowns in eight years, a 72 dual meet winning streak, and a State title victory by 68 points, jepsen ' s team may have seemed like a sure thing.

" There is never just ' another ' ; this year was rewarding because the kids were sick at times, but they swam well and at State we won by the second biggest margin ever! " While some teams set goals of a .500 record or of winning Conference, the swim team ' s goals were much higher but also tougher to achieve. " I decided myself what goals we should try to obtain before the season began, and then I talked it over with the swimmers. We had to be realistic, but the goals had to be hard enough that they had to work for them, " explained the Coach. He went on to add, " I believe that we were good enough to accomplish our goals of winning Conference, Sectionals, and State and keeping the winning streak going. I think this year ' s team was one of the better teams I ' ve coached; it ranks with 1974 and 1977. " Tri-captain Craig Smith, senior, PHD award winner and co-winner of the Outstanding Freestyle award, added, " I thought the season was very successful; we accomplished all of the goals that we set. " Along with those individuals who believed Munster " produced " good swimmers, were those who did not realize how much time and effort was put out by a swimmer. " Swimming becomes part of their lives; they just don ' t become good overnight, " commented Jepsen. Coach attributed quite a bit of the success to the tough morning and afternoon practices. " Two practices a day make the difference between a good and an average team. We give the kids the opportunity; it ' s a heavy load, but I don ' t think they would With his mind set on a flawless dive, sophomore Mike Chelith concentrates on his move at the State meet.

" Practices are tough, but they reflect how you ' ll do in the meet, " added tri- captain Doug Bombar, senior, co-winner of the Outstanding Individual Medley award and Butterfly award. Coach believes that there was a sense of pride felt for the team in Munster. " The boys were a mature group of swimmers who accepted responsibility well, " stated the Coach. Along with the sense of pride, the coach believed, was the fact that some did not realize when they were turning over at 6 a.m. to catch another 40 winks, the boys were getting ready for the first practice of the day. " It ' s unbelievable how people can criticize a coach who is putting out All- Americans or winning State titles when they themselves are not as successful, " added Coach Jon Jepsen.

Last season in fieldhouse below par Team unity: missing factor in b-ball season B efore the construction engulfed the fieldhouse, the boys basketball team hustled across the floor for the last time, leaving their few faithful fans disappointed with their 8-13 record. The frustrating season was attributed to many factors. The lack of school spirit had a big effect not only on basketball but on all sports, according to Coach Jack Yerkes, freshman English teacher. “We need a turn around in school spirit, " he added. Another problem was the attitude of the team. " We wanted to win but did not want to work, " stated Jeff Wulf, senior. " We had a lazy attitude, " he commented. " We did not play with a great deal of intensity which is necessary for a victory, " explained Coach Yerkes. Both agreed that the lack of enthusiasm of the student body was reflected by the attitude of the players. Still another hurdle that needed to be overcome was the inexperie nce of the players. " We lost eight of the twelve players from the 78-79 squad. Of the four returning, only Dedelow and Wulf had varsity experience, " Coach Yerkes explained. Junior Kevin Anderson commented, " We didn ' t work well as a team— we weren ' t synchronized. " Frustration was furthered by the loss of six games by less than four points. The players ' performance at Valparaiso was one of the high points of the season. " Valparaiso was one of the best teams in the state. We lost by only one point and played very well, " commented the head coach. 154 Boys Basketball Two points are scored as junior center Rob Rudakas springs off the floor and sinks a basket against Roosevelt.

" Valparaiso was a terrible meet, all of us performed far below our potential, " commented junior Sue Biedron.

" The squad pra cticed diligently all year coming in every day after school and twice a day during Christmas vacation.

We beat two fine teams in ECR and ECW, but lost to Highland 34- 31 in the finals. " The coach believed that it was hard to stay up emotionally and physically for three games. He attributed the loss at Sectionals to the fact that the team had to play three tough games in four days and the loss of starter Sue Bucko due to tendonitis in her ankle.

" There were only a handful of us that wanted to run; the rest ran when ever they felt like it. The talent was there, though, " explained junior Rene Gray, PHD award winner. The coaches agreed that the talent was present. The team set its goals high; it wanted to be one of the top three teams in the Lake Suburban Conference, and it wanted to acquire good enough times to get some girls to Regionals. " The competition got a lot better, but the girls did not work as hard as they could have, " explained Mr. Shinkan. Mr. Dennis Spangler, Girls Track coach and unified arts teacher added, " the attitude was both good and bad. " This could explain why the team did not meet two of its goals by sending senior Kathy Czapczyk, tri-captain, and her half mile time of 2:25.8 to Regionals and placing fifth in the Conference. " Contributing to the low performance were the obstacles of the bad weather and no indoor track, " said Mr. Spangler.

" The Peru and West Lafayette Tournaments were two of the team ' s high points, along with the Conference and Sectional titles, " stated senior Sue Block. " The LaPorte Tourney was also a big achievement for the squad, " added junior Mary Potasnik. Consistency also played a major role in the girls ' year as only nine individual matches were lost during the entire season. " The team as a whole was very consistent and the entire squad played really tough all year, " commented Mr. Sidney Rothstein. Going through most of the season as the number one ranked team in the state, the girls went into the Sectionals as the heavy favorite. Even though the squad as a whole won the title, only one GIRLS TENNIS TEAM 18-0 MHS OPP Hammond Morton 7 0 Hammond Clark 7 0 West Lafayette 6 1 Calumet 7 0 Griffith 7 0 Peru Singles 1st Merrillville 7 0 Highland 6 1 West Lafayette Dougles Invitational 1st Lake Central 7 0 Lowell 7 0 Crown Point 7 0 LaPorte Tourney 1st East Chicago Washington 5 2 Hammond Gavit 7 0 Lake Suburban Conference Tourney 1st Chesterton 6 1 Sectionals 1st Regionals 2nd State 4th Taking advantage of the warmer weather, sophomore Kelly Chapin works to improve her forehand.

The State Tourney, unlike the regular season, operated on an individual basis. This means only individual winners advance from Sectionals to Regionals and then down to the finals. “We would have been the favorite in the State Tourney if it were on a team basis, but since it is run on the individual level only Lori and Judy were able to advance to Regionals, " stated Kim. Lady Luck seemed to be against the top ranked team in the Sectional draw. " The luck of the draw seemed to be against us, along with the fact that we didn ' t play up to our potential, " added Sue. In the Regional meet, Judy and Lori were runners-up to South Bend. This still enabled the doubles team to advance to the State bracket of the State-Wide Tournament. At the State meet, Judy and Lori advanced to the finals and then were defeated by South Bend, once again, in three sets. The third set went into a tie- breaker. Awards received by the squad included the Most Valuable Player which went to Lori Goldberg. The Pride, Hustle, and Desire (PHD) Award was received by Judy Brauer, while co- recipients of the Sportsmanship Award were Sue Block and Kim Torok. Mr. Rothstein ' s own personal award, Miss Congeniality, went to sophomore Kelly Chapin. While the team fell short of its goal, to win the State meet, they still accomplished many achievements along the way. Despite a strong shot by her Lowell opponent, senior Sue Block tries to hit a forehand winner.

" The entire team made tremendous improvement from the beginning of the season through Sectionals, " added Boys Golf coach Mr. Ed Musselman. Although the team had to overcome a lack of experience because only three lettermen returned to tee-off, the team finished with " very good " scores in all five tournaments, according to Coach Musselman, ending the season with a 7- 8 record. These up-to-par scores brought the Varsity squad to sectionals in which they achieved third place qualifying them for the Regional championship. Individual improvement also played a role in the season demonstrated by senior Tom Corsiglia. Tom earned first place on the All-Conference team, in addition to capturing Sectional medalist honors with a score of 76. Tom went on to be honored as Most Valuable Player, while teammate Tom Gozdecki received the Pride, Hustle and Desire award and senior Bob Blazevich was voted Most Improved Player. " With the graduation of three members of the Varsity squad, this year ' s junior varsity squad will have to continue in the tradition of improvement to overcome their inexperience, " predicted Tom.

The money was used to pay for the new goal posts, according to Coach Jack King, Health and Safety teacher. Another benefit was the unification of the team. " Going through an ordeal like that develops team unity, " explained junior Dane Johnson, captain. After expecting three or four losses, the Soccer Team was pleasantly surprised by their 11-0-1 record, reported Coach King. " We were surprised we did so well because we lost seven out of eleven starters from last year, " explained Dane. Coach King pointed out the team ' s strong defense as a reason for their success. " It frustrates the other team and causes them to make mistakes; then our offense capitalizes, " he explained, " A lot of hard work and team unity " were the explanations Dane offered to the question of success. The players practiced all year and this added to their teamwork and experience. " We played together at the parks, " junior Mladen Kralj stated. Also, the team started practicing earlier. " We ' d get up early during the winter just to run and get in shape, " Mladen commented. Three awards went to Dane Johnson, including Most Valuable Offensive Player Award, Most Valuable Overall Player Award, and the Pride, Hustle, and 182 Soccer Hoping to improve his heading skills, freshman Mike Bosnich practices diligently the day before the important Lake Porter Tournament.

Senior Mirko Marie was named Most Valuable Defensive Player and Mladen Kralj was named Most Assists. Captains were Marie, Johnson, and senior David Loo. The season ended with satisfaction, as they beat Portage in the first game of the Lake-Porter Tournament, 3-1. According to junior Mike Etling, that was the high point of the season. " Everyone thought we would lose, but we didn ' t, " Mike stated, smiling. The loss was expected because of the tie with Portage in double-overtime earlier in the season. The luck of the draw slated the league ' s two unbeaten teams to face each other in the opening round. The tournament continued as the boys ' beat Highland, 8- 2, and ended with a 6-1 victory over Merrillville in the championship game. While raising $1,000 for the team, junior Mark Luberda saves a goal in the Wilbur Wright Middle School gym. Soccer 185 Construction, weather hinder baseball success Unpolished ‘stangs bite the dust R ain, cold, and construction thwarted the attempts of the Baseball Team, as they finished their season with an 11-15 record. " The Conference crown was the most sought after goal of the team, " stated Bill Baker, senior. However, this goal was not achieved. " Inconsistancy was the main reason, " Bill added. Coach Mike Niksic continued, " We had no place to practice. At the start of the season we played six of seven games with only one field practice. Also, we could not cover a lot of things indoors as we have in the previous years. " The talent was there, however Niksic believed it to be only average and blamed the losing season on inconsistant pitching. Seniors John Broderson and Jim Dedelow cited poor batting as the reason for the losing season. Inexperience could have been another problem, as there were only four returning varsity players. " Dedelow was the only one with real experience, " Bill stated. The season was highlighted by the East Chicago Tournament and the doubleheaders at Benton Central and Michigan City. " We lost the tournament and split the double-headers, but when Unleashing a full follow-through, senior Bill Baker rips a hit, helping his team in its quest for the conference crown.

The Most Valuable Player Award was given to senior Mark Brickman. The Golden Glove Award and the Golden Bat Award were given to seniors Kent McAllister and )im Dedelow, respectively. McAllister was also awarded the PHD. Coach ' s Attitude Award was given to captain Pete Manous, senior. Captain- elect is sophomore John Cerajewski. All- Conference members included McAllister as catcher and junior Mike Pruzin as outfielder. Senior John Broderson and Brickman were Honorable Mentions. Despite these high points, disappointment built with every conference loss. A prime example of this was the Calumet game. " We were winning 2-0. There were two outs and two strikes, " Coach Niksic recalls. " Then, due to errors, we lost 6-2. " Along with the hope for the elusive conference crown, the stickmen had hoped for 20 victories in season games and the capture of the Sectional title. But these dreams remained unrealized as the season came to a close with the 2-0 loss to Bishop Noll at the Sectionals. " Throughout the whole season, we needed better hitting, " Dedelow said. Broderson felt that the loss was due to Noll ' s pitcher. " Ispus is a tough pitcher and the hitting just was not there, " explained John. junior Varsity Baseball Team (front row) Zlatan Stepanovich, Bryan Duffala, Bob Sirounis, Roger Teller, Vince Pokrifchak, Adam Yorke, Tim Markowitz, (back row) Coach Don Kernaghan, Barry Klosak, Lou Carbonaire, Jim Milan, Paul Yorke, Joe Poi, Dave Robinson, Chuck Reed, Tom Mateja, Coach Bob Maicher.

From the young to the old, from the fat to the thin and from the tall to the short, everyone was participating in a sport of some kind, whether it be racketball, jogging, biking, horseback riding or any other physical activity. People seemed to be joining the sports bandwagon because they enjoyed participating in the sport. " I just love to ski, " stated senior Laura Holt, " I do it for that reason. " The enthusiasm in sports could also stem from the United States participation in the Olympics. " People became motivated to go out and do something with the coming of the Olympics, " commented senior Pete Manous. Everything from television commercials to endorsements stressed the American Dream come true. People saw themselves as possible Eric Heidens or Linda Frationis taking home the medal. People may have enjoyed the sport, but they also may have enjoyed the idea of being in good shape and healthy. The emphasis society places on health has grown tremendously in the past few years. Everywhere a person looked, magazines or television, he saw a trim, fit being. Books such as " The Book Of Running " and " Let ' s Eat Well " informed the public how and why to stay healthy, jogging in the wee hours of the morning or playing racketball for a few hours helped the health fanatic reach his or her goal, of course, along with a good diet. While the highly esteemed fanatic drank four raw eggs every morning at the crack of dawn in order to capture a first place, or the fitness nut played tennis everyday, there were those recreational sports lovers who participated because of the lack of pressure placed on them. With recreational sports, the only competition was that which the player created. There was no coach yelling at him or no title at stake, only the player ' s feeling of wanting to win. " There is less While in his back yard during a nice day, junior Bob Caskey practices some of the more difficult moves on his skateboard.

Senior Allison Hirsch took advantage of the weekends to go to Michigan where she could enjoy skiing. Concentrating on the flight of the ball, senior Janet Notolli watches until it bounces off the paddle and heads toward the other side of the net. With an expert by her side, senior Anita Webber listens carefully to the instructions given by senior Reed Oslan on how to get the ball into the pocket. Recreational Sports 191 competition in sports outside of school; it ' s more an idea of improving yourself and not of beating the other guy, " explained Pete. Recreational sports also became a type of social gathering. Friends could get together over a game of tennis or racketball. " Sports gives us a chance to get together with our other friends, " stated junior Patty Etling. It was tough for a bunch of friends to go jogging on a date or skiing in the middle of June, but there were many sports that could give them something to do, such as riding a bike, bowling, or playing a game of handball. This type of participation in sports also allowed boys and girls to compete against each other. It could be a definite ego booster for the girl if she won and a real let down for the male ego if he lost. Even if the school did not offer the sport in interathletics, nothing seemed to stop the sports enthusiast. Many people still took part in sports outside of school. Sports, such as skateboarding and racketball were not offered by many schools, but still seemed to be popular. Even if a sports lover did not make the school ' s team, he still enjoyed the sport and wanted to participate in it. Along with such fads as baggy pants and mopeds, recreational sports seem to be sweeping the nation. Everyone was doing it! Even though the school does not offer the sport, juniors Chriss Ressler and Greg Ryan enjoy a game of racketball at the local club. All are into the cont. 192 Recreational Sports Getting into the fitness craze, junior Mark Bittner practices his military press with the help of the With hopes of gaining the point and winning the equipment provided by the school. game, senior )udy Brauer watches her return. trt 1—1 f-fi.

Intramurals offer entertainment Fun and games T he thrill of victory and the agony of defeat was not saved for those students participating in interschool sports. Others who wanted to actively compete in sports without the trauma of try-outs and the many hours of long, hard practice turned to intramurals. " Intramurals gave students a chance to get together with their friends and have fun without the pressure of an organized interschool sport, " explained junior Rene Gray, intramural volleyball player. No skill was necessary to be on either volleyball or basketball intramurals. The only requirement was a fee of $2, paid to Mr. Steve Wroblewski, intramurals director and math teacher. Captains were chosen by Mr. Wroblewski and they, in turn, picked their team members. " I just picked people I knew, " explained senior Pete Manous, captain. While basketball was only open to boys, volleyball was open to both boys and girls. The end of the volleyball season left senior Brian Thomson ' s team as champions, while senior Pete Manous ' team came out on top in the basketball tournament. The games were all in good fun; however, competitiveness increased during the tournaments. " Some guys got pretty serious about winning, " Pete commented. For those students who did not have the time or talent for interschool sports, or those who just wanted a chance to get out of the house, intramurals provided an enjoyable way to spend the evening. Up for a tough shot, junior Mark Porter follows through as the defender closes in. Setting up her serve during a close volleyball game, junior Jackie Case scrutinizes the ball, hoping for a point. Intense action in a basketball game gets senior Pete Manous ' blood flowing, while leaving junior Adam Easter on the floor. 194 Intramurals Head on with his adversary, junior Mladen Kralj tries to block a successful spike.

With the declining en- rollment finally starting to show itself, the Fresh- man Class, down 100 students, found an advantage to this situation. Being the smallest high school class, the freshmen had less trouble identifying a name with a face. Long hours of study and practice went along with all of the glory of success. Whether being a member of a volleyball marathon, learning how to decorate cakes, spending hours practicing an in- strument, or running ten miles a day, ev- eryone wanted to express their individuality. In expressing this uniqueness, some students found happiness and con- tentment, while others were faced with rejection and embarrassment. But, these situations were all a part of growth. Stu- dents learned that individuality was sometimes not immediately recognized with acceptance, but that in order to be happy, each person must be themself. Not only was the world expanding, but individuals were paving the way to their future of bigger and better prospects.

Inevitable changes bring surprises 198 Administration C hange happens every year, which is not too surprising; however, little did the students realize what they were in for when they started school. The year began with threats of a teacher strike which kicked off a busy year for the School Board and Superintendent. After a day and a half of non- stop negotiations in late September, the School B oard and teachers settled the contract before an actual strike took place. With the dispute settled, the School Board and Superintendent were now faced with construction hassles. These hassles included the relocation of classes and the shortage of parking spaces. Despite the inconveniences, one construction project that especially pleased the Superintendent and staff was the new administration building being built north of Wilbur Wright Middle School. Once the building is complete, the School Town administrators will have their own separate building away from the high school. Change is inevitable, but sometimes it seems rather absurd as in the case of the shuffling of principals. If three really is a charm then we were in luck after going through three principals in three months. Dr. Karl Hertz, principal since 1975, resigned in August to take an assistant superintendent ' s job in Neenah, Wl. Staying on to get school started smoothly, Dr. Hertz left at the end of September to start his new job. Dr. jack Preston, Assistant Superintendent, was appointed interim principal until a permanent principal could be found. After two months of searching and reviewing 30 applicants, the School Board appointed Dr. Dave Dick as Principal on Nov. 5. Dr. Dick realized that change promotes growth and in doing his part, he planned two goals. Improving student attitudes and instruction became his primary objectives. " Improvements in communication and aesthetics of the building will be essential to realizing any change in student attitudes, " he explained. Change became more than just a word for students and teachers alike as they viewed all the complications and achievements of the School Administrators. Getting together to decide on the new furniture for the remodeled High School, Principal Dr. David Dick and Assistant Principals Mr. lames Bowden, Mr. Gerard Walters, and Mr. John Tennant look through the supply catalog.

Dr. Wallace Underwood has many obligations to fulfill as Superintendent of Schools. Administration 199 Board and teachers unite Boiling tempers cooled as the threat of a teachers strike vanished. " No one wanted to see a teachers ' strike in Munster, " commented Mr. Dave Russell, Munster Teachers Association (MTA) spokesman. " I would have been most unhappy to see that sort of thing happen here. " The MTA was on the verge of a strike with the Munster School Board at the start of school. " I would have gone on strike if necessary, " said Mr. Ed Robertson, English teacher, " but you have to be rational about these things and hope the other side will, too. " The teachers and the School Board were able to work out an agreement and draw up a contract without resorting to a strike. " The school system as a whole is better off that we didn ' t have to strike, " said Mr. Russell. " The positive thing is that both sides have gained. " Mr. Robertson agreed and added " the contract was a fair and just settlement in the spirit of compromise since both sides gave up something. " The contract provides teachers with an increase in salary, new evaluation forms, and in the event of a reduction in force, ability and seniority will be equally weighed. Another point is the issue of just cause in which teachers can not be suspended or discharged without substantial evidence. " I think the teachers are happier now because of the settlement, " added Mr. Russell; " this makes the whole thing worthwhile. " Mr. Russell did encounter some problems in relating the teachers views to the Board. " It ' s hard to make sure that the other side knows not only what the issues are but how you think and actually feel about them, " he emphasized. " We will continue on a very positive basis and concentrate on the education of the students, which is the most important thing, " stated Mrs. Nancy Smallman, School Board President. After the settlement teachers settled into the daily school routine and put their picket signs and " contract now " buttons away until August 19, 1981 when the contract expires and negotiations begin again. After a long day of picketing, Mr. Greg Luksich and Mr. George Pollingue take a break from the hot sun. m (hue- v a Armed only with signs, a cup of coffee, and a firm disposition, Mr. Ed Robertson helps to expose the issue between the MTA and the School Board to passing motorists. With a look of determination, Mr. Robert Maicher math teacher, demonstrates his dissatisfaction to the public. Exhausted teachers head for the negotiation meeting in hopes of reaching a settlement. Strike 201 lil UX UjQ£ Actions speak louder than words S peech is one way that people transmit ideas and thoughts to each other. Body language is an- other. Teachers use certain gestures to effectively con- vey lessons and assign- ments to their students. Sociology teacher, Mr. Paul Schreiner, uses many forms of body language to make his students more in- terested in learning. " Mr. Schreiner entertains the students as he rolls from his heels to the balls of his feet, " commented senior Debbie Markovich. Speech teacher, Mrs. Helen Engstrom, uses many forms of speaking. She keeps the class ' s atten- tion by using a consid- erable amount of hand movements and facial ex- pressions. When an important is- sue or topic is discussed in Mr. Hal Coppage ' s senior Goverment class, he makes the point clear by using much body and arm movement. " Mr. Coppage got so involved in a sub- ject that he knocked his glasses off his face, " ex- plained Liz Homan, senior. Teachers use more than voices to teach. They rely upon their facial ex- pressions and their body motions. This seems to be an effective and helpful key in the transmitting of ideas to the students. Teaching his Sociology class, Mr. Paul Schreiner explains deviance among today ' s society by using vigorous, distrinct gestures. 202 Faculty Aubin-G raves MS.

Classes on the move E nglish class being taught in the auditorium or U.S. History in the Resource Center seemed illogical until the construction sent teachers to all ends of the school. The English 9, English 9A, and Drama classes, taught by Ms. Linda Aubin, assembled in the auditorium for a great deal of the school year. " It was a good move for the Drama class because the students get an opportunity to use the stage during class, " explained Ms. Aubin. " As for the English 9 classes, though, teaching in the auditorium is more like an adventure. " Mr. Gene Fort, U.S. History instructor whose classroom, along with Mr. Thomas Whiteley ' s class, was transferred from the South Resource Center to the North Resource Center, commented that the move was a difficult one. It placed him in a " new area " where he now feels like an intruder. He explained, " the North Resource Center is such a small area compared to the size of my classroom when I was back in the South Resource. " English 9 instructor, Mr. Ed Robertson, has " lived " in a windowless room until a classroom with windows! He stated, " The move was just great! " Preparing her Advanced English 9 class for Iheir quiz over the novel Great Expectations, Ms. Linda Aubin treats this day, like almost every other day, as if it were an " adventure " . 204 Faculty Hunt-Pruzin MR.

MARY LOU BARRON 206 Seniors Abrahamson-Barron S uperiority, admiration from fellow students, and leadership were the qualities used most often to describe seniors. The Senior Class started the year off right by selling senior visors and M M ' s and having bakesales. The money obtained by these fund raisers was used for supplies to construct their homecoming float entitled " Linus up for a Victory. " However, bad luck struck and their float was disqualified from the competition. A broken axle on the flat-bed prevented the float from arriving to the judging place by deadline time. The seniors ' streak of unfavorable luck continued as juniors prevailed over them at the annual Powder Puff game. " I think there was a lack of morale and class spirit this year, " explained senior Julie Lanman. " Everyone just wants to make it to graduation rather than get involved. " The main fundraiser of the year was the dance they held featuring " Dyllinger. " The money obtained from the dance was used for one of the highlights of their year, the Senior Banquet.

JOE CHRUBY FELIPE CHUA MARY JO CLARK THOMAS CLELAND D own the list of curable ailments such as tonsilitis, tendonitis, and laryngitis, there was one that affected many of the seniors that could only be remedied by graduation, diagnosed as " senioritis " . Common symptoms ranged from not doing homework to skipping classes. Boredom crept into the lives of all seniors. Not only did school become a drag, but the highlighted events for the usual weekend also seemed routine. Constant thoughts of graduation, summertime, freedom, and college plans occupied their minds while they trudged to their classes. " I wish school was over because I am sick of doing the same old routine everyday. Once school is out, there will be more things for me to do, " commented senior Kelly Fusner. A miraculous recovery occurred in most seniors as they heard their names called and received their long awaited diploma. Measuring the circumference of senior Robert Lee ' s head, the representative from E.R. Moore Company makes sure his mortarboard will fit for the June 1 Commencement ceremonies. No rash, fever, or runny nose, but disease plagues seniors Seniors 209 Cammarata-Cleland College: break away may leave you broke G raduation is a paramount event in a senior ' s year; however, long before graduation day actually came, many seniors were contemplating over which college campus struck their fancy and their budget. One of the burdens that college bound seniors had to endure was entrance exams such as; Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and Achievement Tests. Most seniors, however, realized the purpose of these tests. As senior Pam DeRolf discovered, " SAT ' s present a challenge that is mandatory to get in any college. " Another task that had to be completed was the college application, which asked a variety of questions ranging from one ' s religion to one ' s father ' s occupation. A fee of usually $15 to $30 was required along with an application. This fee is relatively nominal, except as senior Nancy Rachich appointed out that " when you send in a number of applications to different schools, applying for acceptance can run you about $50 or $60. " An added cost ranging from $5 to $25 is necessary for housing admission. These applications and fees were all part of the process of becoming a freshman at a university; yet, money unfortunately, had the stronghold on many senior ' s decisions. In order to offset college tuition some seniors found it essential to apply for financial aid. Still others found that staying at home and attending a university extention, such as Purdue Calumet, was helpful as they didn ' t have to pay for room and board. Despite all of the tests, applications and financing problems when a student received notice that he had been accepted, all of the hassles appeared to be worth it. Choosing a college is a major decision. Senior Deane Laczy discusses the pros and cons of a large state University with senior guidance counselor Mrs. Phyllis Braun.

President Jimmy Carter ' s Feb. 8 announcement proposing that women, as well as men, be registered for the draft, had not yet come to these terms, but it brought mixed opinions from students. Senior Mark Kaminski saw both positive and negative aspects toward the draft. " First of all, the most positive reason for the draft is for the women who support the Equal Rights Ammendment (ERA), " he stated. Mark also felt that " insecure fighting " might take place, and that it was " an example of a United States ' weakness. " " I think if it ' s absolutely necessary, then the draft should be reinstated; I hope they come up with a different plan though, " explained senior Jenny Figler. Senior Jeanne Kovach felt, " the thought of drafting women doesn ' t shock me. After all, we are people, too. I ' m not a women ' s libber, but women should help their country as much as men. " At ease! For now, the draft is not a reality, only a possibility. Threats of a draft make senior Diana Hudec think more seriously about what lies in her future. What! Me fight a war?

SUE HRISO Seniors 213 Halum-Hriso Seniors break away from winter blahs S pring break finally arrived and adventurous seniors traded leftover winter snow for rays of sunshine and sandy beaches. Although not school sponsored, the trip provided seniors a chance to get away before finishing out the school year. Unlike previous senior trips, they were provided with two options for the annual vacation to either Florida or the Bahamas. The Bahamas adventure, which cost $434, included bus and plane fare, plus their hotel room. Students enjoyed snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, and sunning on the beach while there. " The Bahamas is nice because it ' s out of the country; also, the price was right and it ' s hotter and sunnier than Florida, " added senior Rose Santare. The Florida trip, organized by senior Kay Maloney, included round trip airfare to Orlando, transportation to and accomodations at the Court of Flags hotel, two days admission to Disney World, and one day admission to Wet and Wild, all for the price of $320 for double occupancy or $275 for quad occupancy. " I was sort of shocked when I heard about the Bahamas trip, " commented Kay. " Lots of students have trouble dishing out that kind of money. Whether getting a tan in the Bahamas or visiting Disney World in Orlando, spring break gave seniors a chance to get away from the winter doldrums. As spring break draws near, senior Kay Maloney goes over the final plans for the Florida trip.

A s second semester got underway, certain faces were not " in the crowd " anymore. Where had these people disappeared to? Some had found jobs, while others went off and got married, left for college, or just stayed home and relaxed before leaving for college in the fall. But, no matter what activity they pursued, all had one thing in common: they were mid-term graduates. " I ' m glad that I graduated mid-term because I can work and make money for college, " explained senior Mike Thornton. Many seniors were envious of Mike and the other early graduates. " I wish I could have graduated at mid-term because I ' m really tired of school, " said senior Deane Laczi. Vet, not all students shared that opinion. " I think seniors should stay in school the full year because they miss so much, like basketball games, prom, and senior banquet, " added senior Sue Capps. But according to guidance counselor Mrs. Braun, there are disadvantages in graduating mid-term. She explained that students interested in going to college missed 15 days of the college semester, since Munster ' s semester lets out later. They also needed to complete their finals earlier with a teacher ' s consent if they wanted to start college when their new semester began and have all of their required credits for graduation. Although mid-year graduates had no special ceremony or formal early graduation right when they graduated, they could return in the spring and graduate with the rest of their class and receive their diplomas with a head start over all the others. They had already entered the " real world " as proud and accomplished young graduates ready to face new challenges. Trying to find a job is a problem many seniors faced. The Classified ads became the friend of many seniors.

A multi- purpose piece of paper F rom the Friday night basketball game to the rock concert on Saturday, students needed a ticket for everything. Most tickets are a guarantee that one has paid. Some reserve seats, and others just guarantee admission. They ' re a symbol representing a specific event, a special cause, or a fundraiser. In most cases they ' re needed to keep track of how many people are going to attend. Just about everything from A to Z required a ticket. Students needed them for basketball and football games, movies, concerts, and admission to the fall play, “The Wizard of Oz. " Raffle tickets were also common. Most tickets were a voluntary investment. But, in some cases tickets were an unwelcome and unforgettable experience. One type of unwelcome ticket experienced by a few was the shrill cry of a siren and the flashing blurr of red lights. This did not always mean a ticket. It depended on the offense. But in some cases it meant a costly and unfortunate expenditure. Parking in an undesignated spot also meant a ticket. Tickets ranged in price. Basketball and football games were usually fairly cheap. Even the dances 218 Seniors McLaughlin-Mills after the games weren ' t too bad. However, Prom, Chi, and Homecoming were a more costly investment. Concerts also ran fairly high dependi ng on the group you wanted to hear. " Although it did cost $11 for the ticket, the UFO concert I went to was well worth the price I paid, " said junior John Fissinger. Whether for entertainment or investment, tickets were a way of life. Even though it takes a few extra minutes from sophomore Gina Pupillo ' s lunch hour, buying a ticket for Friday night ' s game from Sharon Vierk, junior, is a bargain in the long run.

In addition to the usual Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SAT) and American College Tests (ACT) which were required along with class rank and grade point average for college admission, the students were required to take a series of tests for th ree days. On the first two days, seniors took the Tests of Achievement and Proficiency (TAP). These tests measured how much the student had learned in 12 years of schooling in comparison to the national average. The areas in which they were tested ALONG WITH TH£ TAP ' s, Jeffrey Callahan, senior, struggles with the seven minute Cognitive Abilities Tests utilizing all his skills. were reading comprehension, math, written expression, using sources of information, social studies, and an overall of science. On the third day, seniors were tested in verbal skills and mathematics. The Cognative Abilities Test (CAT) measured the students ' ability to do schoolwork in general. According to Mr. James Bawden, guidance counselor, the tests were administered for basically three reasons. The first reason was for a student to get an idea of where he stands nationally in comparison to other students. S econdly, they were for the school system to see if as a class they had grown and achieved in the four years of high school. Last was to see, if on the average, achievement scores are comparable to ability scores. " The reason for these tests was to get information for the students and the school system in order to see if the curriculum needs to be improved in any areas, " explained Mr. Bawden. The students reactions to these additional tests varied greatly from upsetting to accepting. Senior Pam Wiley felt that, " the SAT ' s should not be required for placement in college. I think that a one shot test is not accurate in determining the knowledge a person has retained from 12 years of schooling, " she elaborated. " I think tests are essential for placement in colleges because they need some type of basis for admission, " stated senior Marta Rheinhold. Whether there was an increase or decrease in testing, there were plenty of number two pencils to go around.

Trying troubles of taking tests Seniors 221 Peters- Powers Nonconforming seniors saunter their own pace B zzzzz. Class was starting. Seven wide eyed freshmen scurried through the halls chattering quickly while one senior sauntered slowly to his class, stopping along the way at the drinking fountain. Perhaps he was too familiar with the loopholes in the school rules to fear punishment, yet the freshmen still viewed high school as a new and frightening experience. In class the freshmen listened attentively to the teacher and quietly turned in their carefully prepared homework, or at least carefully prepared believable excuses when they failed to complete it. However, many upperclassmen skipped homework assignments with few qualms. One senior stated, " apathy sets in. " The bell sounded and students filtered into the lunchroom. Excited freshmen prepared their weekend schedule, which must have been in accordance with the rest of their " clique. " But many seniors preferred to go it alone. " A lot of people go out with their boyfrien d or girlfriend on weekends. The security of a ' clique ' isn ' t needed, " was one explanation for the breaking away from a large circle of acquaintances. " I think it has a lot to do with maturing. As people get older, they don ' t need to go along with the crowd anymore. They can follow their own ideas without worrying about being accepted, " senior )immy Dedelow commented. Others believed that the reason for non-conformity was graduation. After high school a whole new part of life began-new places, new plans, and new people. It was 2:37 and the final bell rang. School was over and freshmen rushed home to communicate the " latest " with their friends, while the seniors sauntered home to dream of the future. Tardiness means little to many seniors. Senior Paul Roberts walks slowly to class despite the clanging of the final bell. |OE PRIEBOY KAREN PSAROS: Marching Band 1-3; Wind Ensemble 1-3; Concert Band 1,2; Outdoors Club 1-4 (V.P 4); Scuba Club 3,4 (Pres. 4); Project Biology 3; Orchestra 1,2.

F orgetting a lunch can be an embarrassing and hungering experience, but those students who had parents that worked at school never had to face this problem— they were fortunate. Their parents were there in times of need. Brown bag . . . brown nose One of the most popular advantages was the " convenience for money, sickness or signatures on school papers, " according to Mrs. Theresa Bucko. It was also a convenience for the mothers as it " broke up their day " by getting them out of the house for something enjoyable, explained Mrs. Rita DeRolf. Senior Pam DeRolf acknowledged the fact that " if she (Mrs. DeRolf) was not working, she would have been out spending money— so it was better that she was making money. " On the other hand, this situation could also have been a setback in the opinion of the student. The guilt-concious student could have formulated the opinion that his mother was working for the sole purpose of spying on the student. Mrs. DeRolf denies this fact by saying, " I told them (the children) I work for mental health— my own. " An aftermath of the mother working is that " the housework did not get done, so we had to do it when we got home from school, " stated Pam. In weighing the pros and cons of the situation, the pros came out ahead in one instance— it kept some seniors from being called down to the office to pick up a lunch from mom. Although Mrs. Rita DeRolf can control what her daughter Pam, senior, eats at home, during school hours Pam is just another passing customer at the lunch counter. 224 Seniors Seto-Skawinski DAWN NANENE SMICK: Paragon 3,4; Pegasus 3; DECA 3,4 (Sec. 4); Outdoors Club 4; OEA 2; Intramurals 1,2; COE 2.

E veryone has their own lucky number; however, for many 1 7 year-olds the magic number is 18 as they anticipate the encounter of many desirable new advantages, in view of the fact that at 18 they are legal adults. Included in many people ' s plans was leaving home and obtaining their own place, usually with a friend or roommate. Senior Nena Watson felt that " it would be worth the money and trouble to get out and expand your horizons. The lack of authority would make you more responsible to manage your money and to make a living for yourself. " Despite the high costs of rent and other necessities, quite a few people believed that the overly high expenses were worth every penny. Another advantage, which many people indulged in, was the Wisconsin drinking law Congratulations are in order for " Karen " who turned 18, while senior friends, Mark Kiernan and Dawn Smick prepare the finishing touches on decorating her locker for her birthday. age of 18. Although the distance was unfavorable, some students enjoyed weekend camping and fishing trips up there because they were " of age. " The age of 18 brought many benefits but like anything else there existed disadvantages. This was because much responsibility was placed on someone of legal age. For instance, one had to acquaint himself with politics since he was given the right to vote. Many young men and women had to worry about the possibility of being drafted into the service, since President Jimmy Carter planned to re-introduce the draft. Also, parents expected their children to fend for themselves and solve their own problems, since they were to answer for their own actions. Although most 17 year- olds wish they were 18, some 18 year-olds, because of the responsibility expected of them, found that they were picking a new favorite number. What ' s your lucky number?

(AMES WHITTED PAM WILEY D oing the cruise on the weekend, long trips to the beach and skiing were becoming few and far between, as many students began to feel the gas shortage ' s squeeze on their wallets. With gas prices soaring everytime a fillup was required, unnecessary drives were becoming less important to high school students. Car pooling and walking were coming into the picture as students tried to conserve their finances. For people with their own car, like senior Dave Perdicaris, " the energy crisis forced me to go to work to pay for the rising fuel prices. " But for most who used their parents ' cars, requests for the auto on a particular night were becoming rejected as parents tried to keep the fuel gauge above empty. The cars of high school students were drastically different from those of the past. Instead of a 440 engine that went from zero to 50 in four seconds, students were falling back on four cylinder cars that get 35 miles to the gallon. " The mileage you get per gallon is definitely important with the soaring gas prices, " stated senior Mark Brickman. This showed the trends of the high school motorist has changed greatly due to the energy crisis. Making sure he gets every last drop, senior Karl D ' Arcy fills up his tank keeping in mind how much money is in his wallet.

" He truly felt that this class had the organization behind them as well as their sec- ond major asset, good leadership. Three important activi- ties leading the Class agenda were the basis for their success. First they planned and organized a first place float, which would win for the second time consecutively. Sec- ond, was the organization of fund raising activities, in order to raise enough money for the prom and their Senior float. Last, but not least, according to Peggy Collins, Class secre- tary-treasurer, " our main goal was to make our prom the best prom ever!

" We had hard competition this year, but we weren ' t surprised that we won " explained Class sponsor Mr. George Pollingue. Contrary to the set tradition that the seniors are " automatically going to win just because they are seniors, " the Junior Class came through and beat them once again. " We thought that we weren ' t going to finish the float in time. During the last night of float we were As the float parades down the street in glory, the Junior Class victoriously leads it on its way to another first place. still working on the skirts. The following morning we were still putting things together, but we still pulled it out, " explained junior Rene Gray. Good participation and leadership along with organization is an important key for success in any project. " We had great leadership this past year, and we were very organized. Despite some slow production on some parts of the float, the organization pulled us through. I feel we were more organized than the other two classes were, " added Mr. Pollingue. Junior Class President Mark Laberta summed it all up by saying, " The key to turning out a good float is starting to design it early.

There were mixed feel- ings among the Soph- omore Class over the question of driving. Some students, like sophomore Candis Wojcik, felt that not being able to drive was really a " drag " , and they just couldn ' t wait until they get their licenses. After thinking the question through a while, Candis ex- plained, " it ' s not really that bad because I have two ju- nior friends who both have cars. I usually go out with them. " In agreement, classmate Adrienne Gif- ford stated, " it ' s not bad because I usually get rides from my parents, and if they can ' t take me, I would have to walk or get a ride from a friend. " On the other hand, sophomore Nancy Rzonca commented, " I really hate not being able to drive. " Sophomore Kym Clouse, another upset class mem- ber, agreed with Nancy that she really hated the idea of not being able to drive. Kym continued, " I will just be so glad when I get my license. It ' s really tough not having it now! " Overall, most members of the class looked forward to " growing older " and being able to drive. Nancy concluded, " It ' s driving me crazy! " Walking home from school, sophomore Scolt Spongberg wishes he had a car for transportation. 244 Sophomores Geiger-Hollingsworth Karin Houk Tom Hriso Cheri Huard Mary Huber Dave Hughes lane Huttlie loanne Jaceczko Drew lackman Ed Jarosz Jeff Jarczyk John Jarczyk Lorrie Joens Amy Johnson Eric Johnson Karen Kaegebein Mark Kaegebein Debbie Kain Donna Kaminski Frances Katris Michelle Kelchak Scott Kellehor Doreen Kender Scott King Richard Kiszenia Barry Klosak Daniel Kmak Dave Knighl Matt Kobus Shelly Kolrsz Chris Koman Deanna Komyatle Michelle Kornelik Andrea Kolt Jim Kottaras Dave Kovacich Steve Koufus Robert Kritzer Lisa Krusinowski Diane Kucer Steve Kuklinski Brenda Kushnak Kristine Kustka Rebecca Labowitz Steve Lang Marian Leahy John Leary Marsha Lefkofsky Ellyn Lem Mark Levine Julie Levy Dave Lichtsinn Darryl Lieser John Linnahe Karen Little Kim Lorenzen Sonia Luera Mat Lusk Sophomores -!4 1 Houk-Lusk Dan Macenski Karen Maday Cynthia Madsen Nancy Maginot April Mahala Suzet Malek Chuck Malinski Susan Manak Pete Mann Chris Marchand Andja Marich Elaine Markovich Tim Markowicz Ken Marlowe Rob Maroc Sandy Mason Scott Matasovsky Tom Mateja Brian Matthews jenny Mazanek Amy McCarthy Linda McClaughry Mike McKinney Mary McLaughlin David McLees Tim McLoughlin |oe McNeill Bob Mears Hope Melby Mark Melby Sandi Mescall Dan Metz Catherine Meyer Karen Meyer Karl Meyer Tom Mihalareas Jim Milan Debbie Milne Jeff Milne Brenda Miller Jeff Miller Tracy Miller Asim Mohinddin Ken Monaldi Chuck Mooney Tom Morgan Diane Morris Paul Mounts Steve Mryan Anne Mulligan Sandy Narvid Kelli Nash Nick Navarro Gary Nelson Joe Nelson Mike Nelson Meg Nichol 242 Sophomores Macenski-Nichol B attle cries prevailed over the myth that underclassmen don ' t possess much spirit. Sophomores, once called the rowdie freshmen, upheld their position by accurately displaying their spirit throughout the year. " I think that we are the rowdiest class and have thettest spirit any class has ever had at Munster High School, " exclaimed Being in a rowdie class, sophomore Suzette Malekk displays a " Go for it " button. Suzanne EINaggar. Juniors and Seniors were slightly awed as the sophomores provided stiff competition for the rowdiest class at the pep sessions. The sophomore battle cry resounded through the field house as multitudes of rice and confetti flew through the air. " Sometimes upperclassmen really put you down if you don ' t have any class spirit, " remarked sophnmore Carole Orosco, " so showing spirit as underclassmen helps you to earn respect. " " We try to participate in all events and cooperate and work together for the class as a whole " continued Suzanne. Carole agreed and added, " I think our spirit will continue and grow as upperclassmen as long as everyone cooperates. " As the year drew to a close, the upperclassmen accepted the sophomores ' spirit, and sophomores looked forward to becoming rowdie juniors.

" Among all the advan- tages and disadvantages of being an only child, these complaints were never heard in an only child ' s life; they were the norm for a big family. An only child had the advantage of having everything to himself while members of large families shared everything from the car to their underwear. Many children in large families probably wish that they were the only child at times. " My brothers and sisters always get on my nerves, but I suppose I would miss them if I didn ' t have them around, " commented sophomore Mary Ramirez. One could plainly see that a large family goes far beyond the benefits of an only child because of the companionship that was involved.

Although the Freshman Class didn ' t really have that much to do through their first year, they did have the Homecoming Dance and future years to plan for an organize. " The Homecoming Dance was really hard because we had to do everything ourselves, " commented freshman Alice Clark, vice president of her class. As for the rest of the year, freshman Eileen Collins, class secretary- treasurer explained, " Although we didn ' t have any fund raisers planned early in the year, we did plan to have such raisers as bake sales and car washes. " Class sponsor Mr. Richard Thomas concluded, " I have encouraged the officers to begin planning for their future. " Though new to the high school system, the Freshman Class officers have succeeded in completing their first year duties. While making their final plans for the annual Homecoming Dance, freshman officers Eileen Collins, Ann Broderson, and Alice Clark check to make sure the decora- tions committee has ordered supplies. 246 Freshmen Abbott- Broderson Tracy Brown Sue Brozovic Tracy Burbich Amy Cal a Shelley Callison Kevin Canady Sue Carlson Tim Carroll Theresa Case Marilyn Cassity April Chambers Tracy Chapin Lena Checroun Mindy Chemerinsky Alice Clark Karen Cole Eileen Collins Karen Comstock )im Condes Chris Cornell Caryn Costa Sue Cueller Anita Culbertson Amy Cyrier Andrew Damianos Anna Marie Dash Karen DeCola Lisa Delgado Mike Dernulc Chris Derrico David DeRolf Denise Derow Greg Doolin |oe Doranski Dori Downing Donn Duhon Mickey Eggebrecht Brian Elkmann Mike Farinas Charlie Faso Bill Featherly Dave Ferner Mark Fijut Robyn Fisher Robert Fitzgibbons Walter Florczak |im Frankos (ohn Frigo Patty Fuller )oe Garza Robert Garza Freshmen Brown-Garza 247 Terry Gates Rick Geiger Karen Gerlach Adam Gill Karen Glass Mike Goldasich Lori Goldberg Karen Golden Helene Goldsmith Carl Gordon Mark Gozdecki lonathan Gross leanette Gustat Julie Hager John Hales Rob Hanus Walter Harding Jamie Harrison Kevin Hartoonian Terrie Hatala James Hayden Mark Hecht Kevin Heggi John Heip Tara Herman Jackie Hibler Chris Hill Bryan Hobbic Michael Hoffman John Holzhall Doug Hooper Joy Horvat Evelyn Howarth Vanessa Hughes Bob Hulett Dan Hulsey Steve Hulsey Dan Hyrley Rick Hutchings 248 Freshmen Gates-Hutchings ■S A Ithough there h 4 has been an m average decline in enrollment of about 1% every year, this year ' s Freshman Class was the largest decline of about 6 Vi% loss, " explained assistant principal Mr. John Tennant. According to Dr. Jack Preston, acting principal, the decrease is just something that works its way through each year. Mr. James Bawden, guidance counselor, felt the decline could be attributed to three main things: the birth rate is Despite the decrease of enrollment within the school, there seems to be no decline in spirit, as the Freshman Class cheers at a pep session before the semi-state football game against Hobart. declining, students who are moving into Munster have, for the most part, completed their education, and there has been an upsurge in private schooling. " There are many advantages to the declined enrollment, " stated Mr. Gerald Walter, assistant principal. " For instance, there would be smaller class sizes which should be beneficial, " Mr. Tennant added. " Things will be less impersonal, and students will almost all get to know each other better. " With all things considered, the decline hasn ' t hurt the school too much; instead, the students have a better chance for learning.

Besides the usual costs of going to school, freshmen found added expenses. Because freshmen cannot drive to school, they had to turn to the bus as an alternative. " I don ' t mind riding the bus, " commented freshman Joy Horvat, " but, of course, this convenience does cost money. " The need for a nutritional lunch had the cash registers ringing as freshmen paid the daily cost of 65 cents or more per lunch to satisfy their hunger. After lunch, one could not help but indulge in a chocolate chip cookie or a cupcake from one of the weekly bakesales. In taking that big step from junior to senior high, freshmen realized that their wardrobe was essentially important. Keeping up with the fashions was the major concern. This tacked on an added, but mandatory expense. " I think that fashion is an important part of school, " stated freshmen Darlene Popiela. " I spend more money buying clothes as a freshman. " The need to belong took great effect on the underclassmen. Freshmen were faced with dues for their new club memberships, a sweater for Girls Timing Organization, or a new ball for their devotion to the Bowling Club. Learning to take all of these expenses in stride, freshmen realized that attending high school was a never ending bill. Keeping up with the cost of being a student, freshman Mark Gozdecki waits patiently for his change after selecting his lunch. 250 Freshmen Lorentzen-Merritt Tim Merritt Keith Meseberg Kevin Meseberg Cindy Messina Beth Micenko Jane Michael Mary Mikalian Dan Mikus Mike Min Frank Molinaro Jeff Mooie Kelly Moore |im Moore )ohn Moss Hal Morris Nancy Mucha Brian Muller Bill Murakowski Herb Murillo Paula Muskin Dana Nagle Susan Nagy Michael Nisevich Shannon Noe Julie Nowak Alison Olah Jenny Olds Susan Olio Paul Onest Dale Opperman Beth Orlandi Karen Orlich Tom Papadatos Kathy Parker Sherrie Paval Kris Pavdell Dayna Pawlowski Julius Pawlowski Bob Pelley Lisa Pennington Kim Perry Diane Peterson Kelly Petruch Cathy Pfister Paul Phipps Jeff Plesha Sandy Polis Ron Polyak Freshmen Merritt-Polyak 251 Linda Powell Linda Psaros Dede Premuk George Przybysz Sheila Ramakrishnah Chris Ramirez Michael Ramirez Dwight Reed jill Regnior Dan Robinson Liz Robinson Chris Rodriguez Lisa Rodriguez Karen Rudakasas David Saksa Pat Samito Melanie Santare Cort Savage Julie Sbalchiero Neil Schmidt Lisa Schoer Sue Seefurth Pamela Selby Gus Sfouris Karen Sharkey Carrie Shearer Mike Sheehy Mahesh Shetty Natalie Shimala George Shinkan Donda Shetka lames Siavelis Laurie Siegel Serbo Simeoni Dan Sipkosky Mark Slivka Anne Smiley Randy Smith Bill Somenzi Laura Speranza Diane Steorts Doug Stevens Dan Stevenson Tricia Stewart Gwen Stoll Anita Strayer Caryn Stumpfl Ron Svetic Debbie Taillon |oe Teller Jeff Thomas 252 Freshmen Powell-Thomas Traci Thomas Ralph Thornes Ben Tngovlich Rick Tangerman Sonia Tosiou John Tsiakopoulos Kevin Tyrrell Randy Vale Linda Vlasich Pam Vukovich John Wall Rick Webber Kevin Welsh Larry While Tom White Diane Wiger Joi Wilson Jacki Witmer Sue Wojcik Jim Wolf David Wolfe Julie Woodworth James Yang Mike Yates Elizabeth Yosick Jim Zajae David Zawada Bill Zemaitis Jeff Zudock Reggie Zurab Kristin Zygmunt Tony Zygmunt rom " four eyes " to " fashion, " the world of eye glasses has become part of numerous students ' wardrobe today. Famous designers like Givinchy, Pierre Cardin, and Gloria Vanderbilt are well known for their success in designing clothes as well as glasses. People all over seem to be wearing a style from one of these designers, no matter what the price. " I have a pair of eye- glasses designed by Pierre Cardin. They cost me $1 25. I don ' t mind, though, since they are in fashion, " stated freshman )ane Braun. Glasses are in fashion as freshmen Darlene Popiela and Kristen McMahon take part in a new fad. The styles are endless and the lens shades come in almost every shade of the rainbow. From round to square and blue to purple, no two styles seem to be alike. Many doctor ' s say that there is a high demand for glasses today more than ever before. " We have around 20 to 30 people a month who order glasses that don ' t really need them. They order them just for fashion, " exlained Dr. Salvo Marks, a local optometrist. Glasses are another fad for the time.

Recently the town had acquired many new specialty shops and res- taurants which made it possible to buy life ' s necessities right here, and at the same time, support the community. Stu- dents depended on the local businesses for entertainment, relaxation, food, clothes, and exercise. The rapidly growing business sections were not the only thing trying to build for the better. The enlarging of the ele- mentary schools and the library made it possible to broaden the community ' s learning opportunities. To add to the growth of public ser- vices, subdivisions, such as the new Twin Creeks area, attracted many families Community Support from different places to move for better investments.

Index 301 Encompassing cycles of growth ... 0 uilding for bigger and better . . . When does it all stop? Did the improvements end as the 418 seniors received their long awaited diplomas, or as the other 1152 students got their report card in June? Did they end when the construc- tion workers welded the steel beams of the new classroom wing sig- nifying the development of a new structure? Or do the revisions continue through life, as people constantly strive to im- prove their surroundings and life styles? When the school doors opened in September, students were greeted with construction hassles; curriculum changes, including a weighted grading scale for advanced classes; and the an- ticipation of adjusting to a new principal. As the year continued the School Board changed graduation require- ments, hoping to encourage students to strive harder academically. These changes included raising the minimum credits needed to graduate to 38, and adding required classes in English, math- ematics and social studies. However, seniors Susan Goldenberg, Margaret Novak, Judy Stoddart and Stan Sygment achieved the high academic standards on their own as they were chosen Class Valedictorians with their 4.0 accums. Although not everyone could be num- ber one, athletes practiced day in and day out, striving to improve themselves. For some, this dedication paid off, as Boys Swimming captured their 7th State crown and 11 other varsity teams com- pleted winning seasons. For others, the year provided a time for growth and hopes for a more successful record next year. Clubs and organizations found this same building process. While many groups succeeded at planning activities 302 Closing never-ending for their members, for some, the year was especially successful. Speech and Debate sent a record-tieing five individ- uals to national competition, while Dis- tributive Education, Office Education Association and Chess Team also sent members to Nationals. Individuals didn ' t get lost in the sys- tem. As construction workers built new walls, students tore down other barriers as they expanded friendships. While some students felt their im- provements ended when they received their diploma, most realized that this was just one more phase in the contin- uous cycle of building for bigger and better. Slowly but surely the new addition to the athletic facilities are constructed, making the horseshoe barely recognizable. This attempt to enlarge and enhance the already existing structures, although not greatly appreciated now, will be valued, in years to come. In honor of Arbor Day, Student Government members senior Suzie Strater, juniors Ed Gomez and Sue Fuller, along with sponsor Mr. Hal Coppage and principal Dr. David Dick plant a tree to beautify the school grounds. Hard practicing by juniors Mark Luberda and Branco Marich, and sophomores Steve Koufos and Kevin Welsh pays off as the Soccer team ended its season victoriously. Popular opinion of the Ayatullah is portrayed by the popular home movie character of Saturday Night Live. Senior Mark Klawinski adds levity to the problems in the middle East by wearing his expressive T-shirt. Closing 303 Relief encompasses juniors Bob Gresham, jim Yasko and Randy Brauer, and sophomore Scott Hasse as the 2:40 p.m. bell announces the end of the school day. Goggles were a must during Chemistry lab to ensure safety. Senior Paul Halas receives aid from instructor Mr. Donald Ullman. Beginning with a firm foundation, one of the many bricklayers magically transforms a pile of bricks into an entire wall. Breaking the tension of competition, junior Debbie Dye takes refuge under her towel. 304 Closing $ s: ■■■;,
