Warde Kelly ' s tenth year as a successful principal of Northwood. Through Dr. Kelly, North- wood was evaluated and given a good rating by the North Central Evaluating team this year. Dr. Kelly received his Bachelor of Sci- ence Degree in Alabama before coming to Indiana University to do his graduate work. In 1959, he became Northwood ' s first principal. Dr. Kelly has been an efficient and com- petent principal. In speaking of North- wood he has said, " I feel the basic edu- cational needs of our students include personal attitudes and appreciation which cause the individual students to become effective, worthwhile, and wholesome citizens. " If these standards are achieved, Northwood can become a more prosper- ous junior high school. Dr. E. Warde Kelly Mr. Richard E. Beck We are fortunate to have Mr. Richard E. Beck as our assistant principal this year. His B.S. de- gree was obtained at Purdue, and his M.A. degree at Ball State. One additional year at Purdue earned him his superintendent ' s license. Pre- viously, Mr. Beck taught at the Richmond Com- munity School System for six years, and was principal of Goodland High School in Good- land, Indiana, for four years. Also, he was princi- pal of Huntingburg High School in Huntingburg, Indiana, for two years. According to Mr. Beck, Northwood has very pleasant surroundings and is exceedingly clean and modern. In addition, he thinks we are lucky to have such a wonderful school system. One of his main concerns this year is to bring better stu- dent government to our school. Faculty Provides Leadership . . .

Our school photographer, Mr. Crim, is shown taking a picture of the seventh grade team. The fledglings had a very good season in all sports and if they continue in this way will be one of the best in the city next year. One of the bulletin boards receiving a prize in the spirit contest was homeroom 206 ' s. The homeroom teacher guiding this room is Mrs. Craw. It won the most spirited bulletin board award. Taki, a seventeen month old Alaskan malamute, is shown at one of the football games. He is our first school mascot. Taki is owned by Karen Allen, a ninth grader, and is working toward the three legs needed to make him a Companion Dog. At this time he has one of the three legs needed and has received three trophies. Many people do funny things that are never discovered, but Paula Sexton was caught in the act. Where were you on Christ- mas Eve, Paula? Several new teachers joined the Northwood staff during the school year and were not able to be pictured with the rest of the staff. We were very fortunate to acquire them. They are: (left to right) Mr. Bieberstein, Mrs. Stroh, Miss Neuendorf, Miss Kildsig, and Mrs. King. Northwood was evaluated this year by the North Central Evaluation Team. The school received a good rating. The panel, composed of eleven men and women, visited Northwood before Christmas. Shares Surprises . This is the second year the Girls Physical Education Department has performed for the North- wood P.T.A. The program was entitled Good-bye Cruel World and various phases of the work which the girls do during class were presented. Some of the acts were dances, marching, balance beam and hoop work, and various hand apparatus equip- ment. There were also many pyramids such as the one shown above. These girls make up the third period gym class. The varsity tried hard this year but eventually were jilted by the faculty. Even so, a good time was had by all, as shown by the big smiles on the boys ' faces. A Memorial center is shown " getting the jump " on Dwight Kelsoe as this picture was taken, but Mike Ballinger got the ball. Memorial went on to win the game, however. The above picture was taken after the Christmas As- sembly in which the Drama Club presented a play entitled " Puppy Love. " The club has been very active this year and has presented a number of plays. The entire c lub is pictured above while contemplating their first performance. As in the past, the faculty conquered the varsity in their annual game. However, the rate of injuries were high for the faculty and the teachers are still complaining about their bad backs and sore muscles. The faculty also played the fathers of the P.T.A. this year. The victorious " imposters " are shown above all ready to go. Cardinal Commemorates the Year Our yearbook staff, consisting of several editors, assistant editors, and other workers, has carefully planned this year ' s edition of of the Cardinal Yearbook. Earlier this year, many of these industrious Cardinals could have been found working on the yearbook in the publications room before, during, and after school. illMRBOOKk J ■ in %3 4, 1 . Vi 1 H The key staff members, shown in the FRONT ROW (left to right): Debbie Mann, assistant editor, Judi Hartnup, editor-in-chief, BACK ROW: Jennifer Johnson, assistant editor, and Jykla Klinger, activity ' editor. These are the people who are chiefly responsible for the publication of the yearbook. Pictured here are four of our hardworking Cardinals looking over some yearbook material, (left to right): editor, Judi Hartnup; cartoonist, Dan Scalf; activities editor, Jykla Klinger; and one of the workers, Tim Rahn. Northwind ' N ounces the News Pictured at the left are the editors of the Northwind for this year. They have worked long hours very diligently in order to publish the newspaper. They are (left to right) BACK ROW: Barry Dennis and Donald Crum, sports editors. SITTING: Chris Crull, news editor, Sue Howell, feature editor, Angela Casso, editor-in-chief, and Kathy Rish, fea- ture editor. The Northwind staff under the super- vision of Mr. Rothhaar keeps the school informed and, in actuality, establishes an historical record of the happenings, or- ganizational meetings, dances, sporting activities, special events, social activi- ties, curriculum developments, and spe- cial classroom projects. In many phases of the work the whole student were in- volved. The regular staff members have worked before school, after school, and sometimes between classes in order to gather information, write and rewrite the stories, plan pages, check galley proofs, make " the paste-up, " and get the papers distributed. Editor Angela Casso (center) is shown with two of her special edi- tors Sue Howell (left) and Barry Dennis (right) planning one of the Northwind ' s editions.

SEATED: Rhonda Neher, Sandy Howell, Nancy Storms, Jeff Putt, Angela Casso, Rhonda Lewton, Kim Kleopher, Kathy Rish, and Don Crum. Choir, Bands, and . Girls Ensemble, under the direc- tion of Mr. Coyle, has worked hard to prepare themselves for the concerts and contests this year. These industrious girls worked after school on Wednes- days and many other times to make themselves the good group that they are. This year the Concert Choir has been again one of the outstanding groups of Northwood. The choir has been excep- tional in its concerts for our P.T.A. and the various assemblies for the student body that it took part in. Mr. Coyle, the director, has worked long hours with the choir and both he and the choir are to be commended for the excellent job that they did this year. Meeting Mondays and Fridays after school, Boys Ensemble has readied themselves for various contests and concerts during the past school year. This group is also under Mr. Coyle ' s leadership; the fine work ac- complished by this organization is greatly appreciated. Orchestras Provide . . . Members of the Concert Band directed by Mr. Morphew, works toward total perfection of their musical compositions. They are continually participating in pep sessions, varsity basketball and tournament games, concerts, and the Northern Indiana School Band Orchestra and Vocal Association. All in all, they have mastered many difficult musical arrangements and Northwood is very proud of its Concert Band. Also under Mr. Morphew ' s direction, Concert Orchestra is one of the best musical groups ever seen at Northwood. This group is composed of eighth and ninth graders who excel in the playing of the string instruments. This group practices hard to make themselves the good group that they are. They meet every other day during first period and on Tuesday afternoons. The orchestra has provided entertainment at both concerts and contests. Cadet Band, guided by Mr. Morphew, labors to improve their musical ability that they might be able to qualify for Con- cert Band next year. This organization has practiced after school on Wednesdays during the activity period and special other times. They have performed well at special times throughout the school year. This group shows quite a bit of promise and the Concert Band will be greatly aided by their services next year. Musical Entertainment The Cadet Orchestra, under the tutilage of Mr. Morphew, meets every other Wednesday night after school to practice. This orchestra is training to be in Concert Orchestra next year. They have labored hard and have prepared themselves for various special performances during the school year. The Concert Orchestra looks forward to having this group join them next year, and Northwood is exceedingly proud of the superb work they are doing. ' 1 Wh « f iff li r 1 i i The Glee Club, guided by Mr. Coyle, meets alternate days during the first period and on Thursdays before home- room. These people had hoped to join Concert Choir last year, and will try again to qualify for this organization this year. The biggest qualification is co-operation and attitude. During the year they have enlightened various P.T.A. meetings with their singing. Our Glee Club has also joined the Concert Choir for several numbers. The Cadet Choir or seventh grade training choir, under the supervision of Mr. Coyle, works every Tuesday night during seventh period activities. The choir trains for Glee Club and Concert Choir which they look forward to joining next year. They learn the basic music fundamentals and have their first experience in singing in parts. This group also earns the first two points toward their individual letters. Both Concert Choir and Glee Club look for- ward to having these Cardinals in their groups next year. Self Government Self Study . . . The Student Council is the individual student way of making his opinion heard. The members spend much time discussing, developing, and adopting both new constitutions and laws and new plans for the school. In addition to this, they participate in many school functions, projects, and services with both the student body and administration. The students run this organization entirely by themselves with the guidance of Alan Linkous, serving as president. Karen Asche has fulfilled the office of vice-president and Debby White has served as secretary-treasurer. When the group needs knowledge or advice they turn to Mr. Gehl who is their faculty advisor. This group is a living example of democracy in action and in many cases is the first opportunity that many pupils have to be involved in such an instrument of democracy. The Independent Study group consisting of twenty-four eighth and ninth graders has devoted much free time and school time to working on their project. Each student chooses a subject of special interest to him. A few of these subjects include science, veterinary medicine, rocket design, paleontology, math, sewing, and therapy. Each student chooses an advisor who gets the student started and discusses the various problems which may occur with him. The students and advisor meet once a week to discuss the progress being made on the report. The student is issued a permanent pass, and is excused from the classes he feels he needs to miss in order to work on his project. This is a new system and it is still in the experimental stages and the students involved represent those who wish to go ahead on their own beyond the individual class work. Northwood is one of the few junior highs to have such a program and is very proud of those stu- dents who elect to do this. Projectionists Provide Pictures . These eighth and ninth grade boys have the knowledge of the Beginning Projectionists and have gone on to more advanced work. They work during the day at var- ious times in the Audio Visual room helping both students and the teachers with the machinery. They are (from left to right): Dennis Schaaf, Ed Zbacnick, Dennis Arnold, Rick Ormiston, Ron Dick, Mr. Hart, )im Buchan- an, Steve Shannon, Dave Han- auer, and Dennis Miller. The Beginning and Advanced Projectionists serve a great service during the school year to both faculty and students. They learn how to handle the audio visual material and aid the teachers in preparing classroom instructional aids. The student body and faculty both owe these boys a big vote of thanks. The Beginning Projectionists, also under Mr. Hart ' s guidance, is a club for students who are interested in learning the basic skills of operating audio visual machinery. Most of these boys will join the advanced pro- jectionists ranks next year. They are (left to right): David MacPherson, Redie Bordeman, Mark Lohrman, Ron Blessing, Mr. Hart, Bart Buechner, Scott Lombard, Steve Fuller, Gregg Warren, and Mike Southern. Talking, Traveling, and Typing . Pictured at the left is the Foreign Language Club. Its purpose is to learn more about languages and lands. The club members meet one afternoon a week and study their languages; French or Spanish. The students listen to tapes and records and read pamphlets to learn more about both the language and the country which it is from. They enjoy learning to speak the language and are preparing for more extensive study in their freshman year. The stu- dents keep a notebook and use a textbook just as the regular classes do. Mr. Allen directs the Spanish Club and the French Club is under the guidance of Mrs. Swafford. Shown from left to right are: Jennifer Johnson, French; Leonard Wadewitz, Spanish; and Debbie Mann, French. The goal of the Geography and Travel Club is to see and learn as much as possible, and to understand people and their way of living. To accom plish this, they are using books, stories, and guest speakers. The club is spon- sored by Mr. Eberhart, a new teacher at Northwood this year. When this picture was taken, the group was preparing to view slides which were taken by Mr. Johnson. Through information about other lands and parts of the world, the students learn to understand other people and their way of living. Some of the places which the group has " visited " this year are Europe, Egypt, India, and many parts of the United States. They have also taken two field trips in Fort Wayne. The " travel hounds " who make up this club are: (left to right) Mr. Eberhart, Stan Gerber, Chris Kessens (Seated), Paual Fox, William Stein, Larry Evans, and Steve Fuller. Shown here is the Beginning and Advanced Typing Club. Their director is Mrs. Craw. The club, consisting of about twelve members, are interested in learni ng the basic typing skills. The advanced group works primarily to increase speed and accuracy at the typewriter. The group meets one after- noon a week to practice. At these sessions, practice sheets are distributed and the typists use them at the meeting and at home during the following week. Typing is an accomplishment to be proud of and these students are obtaining it early so it may be of greater use to them in the years to come. Students Strive for Skills . .1.502334 FROM PATIENCE Above are the girls who comprise the Sewing and Knitting Club. They are: FRONT ROW, (left to right) Karen Cashdollar, Karen Schaeffer, and Debbie Watson. BACK ROW: Pat Blessing, Laura Meehan, Kathy Derrow, and Mrs. Stout. The Sewing and Knitting Club enjoys doing various crafts. They meet on Tuesday afternoons during the seventh period activ- ity hour. These girls learn various new skills about knitting and sewing through the guidance of Mrs. Stout. The group makes individual articles of wearing ap- parel and create many other projects. While having a good time, they are learn- ing skills of great value. Through this organization, girls can go beyond what is offered in the individual classroom presen- tation and work in the area of their own special interest. The Games Club is made up of those students who enjoy playing various games such as checkers and chess. The group ' s mee.ting time is on Monday during the activity period at which time they learn more about the individual game of their choice through participa- tion at playing them. The group has regular tourna- ments and contests and as the students become more skilled, proficiency increases and competition becomes more interesting. Mr. White is the sponsor of this club, and does a very good job of helping the students develop needed skills. These game " sharps " who make up this club are: (SEATED); James Baxter, Bob Strotz, Dave Runkle, Doug Vining. (STANDING); Dave Mac- Pherson, Sandy Taylor, Ken Burgener, Mr. White, Charles Combs, and Leonard Wedewitz. Fifteen boys make up the membership of the In- dustrial Arts Club. Mr. Wearly assists these boys with their individual projects. Like the other groups pictured on this page, they are also learning valuable skills. They are: FRONT ROW, (left to right) Scott Mowry and Kent Cole. SECOND ROW, Mr. Wearly, Gary Hanns, Bob Kensill, Jim Biggs, Douglas Baxter, and Douglas Vaughn. THIRD ROW: Bob Wolfe, Richard Brown, Gary Wakeland, Rick Murphy, Den- nis Arnold, Ben Schlatterback, and Tony Hanns. Individuals Indulge in Intramurals . . . |R E The Girls Intramurals program Is supervised by Miss Sheak, Mrs. Call, and Mrs. Groves. There have been many opportuni- ties for girls this year to join any sport which they are interested in. Some of these are basketball, Softball, tumbling, volley- ball, track tug-of-war, crab soccer, regular soccer, hand apparatus and many others. Each homeroom has a team for most of these sports and points are given. The homeroom scoring the most points in each grade are presented with a trophy at the end of the school year. For girls who wish to go even farther there are various extramural teams including soccer, basket- ball, and volleyball. The girls learn how to participate as a team and also how to do things on their own, as illustrated by the tumbling activity. Northwood is very lucky to have such an opportunity like this and many girls take advantage of it. The Boys Intramurals program is an activity for boys who did not participate in Extramurals sports. There is a wide range of sports to choose from and many teachers have contributed their time to direct these activities. These teachers are: Mr. Beal —weight lifting, basketball skills; Mr. Miller— wrestling; Mr. Fries— Softball; Mr. Welch— soccer; Mr. Riley— golf skills; and Mr. Lew — track. About sixty boys participated in these intramural activities. The boys electing to do this sometimes form homeroom teams and play games and tournaments against each other. Through this activity, the boys also learn the value of good sportsmanship, team-work, and new skills toward their particular gymnastic interest. Cheering Challenges Cards . Pictured above is the cheerblock for the 1968-1969 school year at Northwood. This group has done a marvelous job of helping the cheerleaders back our team to victory. The block, comprised of over sixty girls, has painted and hung signs up all year to boost the school spirit at Northwood. The girls meet usually every other Monday to learn new yells and cheers from the cheerleaders. The block is under the direction of the cheerleaders— Jan McBride; Karen Asche, Hope Daily, captain; Janis Jackson; and Rhonda Lewton. The seventh and eighth grade girls who are in this group hope to try out for cheer- leading at the end of this school year. They practice on Monday night and are supervised by the cheer- leaders and Mrs. Call. When the final five are selected, they practice very hard so that they will be able to take over the job that our cheerleaders will vacate this year. This year, the cheerleaders and cheer- block never gave up and cheered the teams right down to the very last minute of each game, regardless of score or circumstance. The cheerblock and several cheerleaders are shown in an action shot at a varsity football game. Bleachers were a new outside addition at North- wood this year and, as a result, many more stu- dents came to cheer our team to victory. Cheer- leaders pictured are Hope Daily and Jan McBride. " Our team is dynamite " is certainly a good cheer for this game because our varsity really " Came on strong.

BACK ROW: Mr. Miller, Bob Bridges, Randy Pond, Gary Nemeth. Gary Andrews, Larry Lemons, and Dan Dunten. Wrestling is a rela- tively new sport at Northwood. This year marks the first year our team has really " come on strong. " Our wres- tlers this year have put forth a commendable effort and have had a tremendous perform- ance in their matches. They are coached by Mr. Miller who has done a fine job in giv- ing our boys great skills and knowledge in the wrestling field. Every night our boys practice in the cafetorium and review their new and old skills by putting them into practice through reg- ular matches. The long hard hours paid off im- mensely because the group won the great majority of their matches. This is an extremely good record because of the newness of this sport at Northwood. Our congratulations to the wrestlers and " keep up the good work, guys! " This year there are not too many eighth grade wrestlers but the ones who are wres- tling have done a good job and have learned many basic skills that will help them on the team next year.
