over 2,000 unique people. The current
integrated, jean-clad SHS population has

in English Dept.
This year the English Department, along
with all the other high school's English
Departments, tested freshmen, juniors,
and seniors to see if their reading level
had gone up at least one level since last
June. If a student's reading level had not
gone up satisfactorily they were helped
in their English classes, and second-se-
mester seniors were offered a class
called reading expansion.
According to Ms. Jean Whitcraft, English
Department head, the aim of the depart-
ment is to train the students in reading,
listening, speaking, and writing, and this
year the department accentuated listen-
ing and speaking skills.
New teachers this year were Ms. Sandra
Scott who taught Special Education, and
Miss Mary Esterline, who taught fresh-
men and sophomore English courses.

New System Aids
There were many innovations in the
Business Education Department this
year, according to Mrs. Ruth Webb, de-
partment head. For instance, clerical
practice was expanded from a one-se-
mester to a two-semester course. Also,
students taking first year typing were in-
troduced to a new program, the Auto-
mated Instruction Program. The program
was geared to the individual achieve-
ment of each student. It involved a series
of films and cassette tapes, given to stu-
dents at their own pace, interspersed
with classroom work. Teachers were on
hand to help and give individual atten-
tion to those who needed it. The pro-
gram was the only one of its kind in

C classes. The development of research
skills and fact-finding were high prior-
ities in the new class. Perfection in writ-
ing Lilly Scholarship papers is their ulti-
mate goal. This year, Shortridge had
more participants than in recent years.

P.E. Classes Sport Wider Range of Activities
The Physical Education classes widened
their curriculum in terms of participation
this year. Boys' P.E. teacher Gary Brown
told of the variety of sports available to
the boys. These sports, including basket-
ball, volleyball, wrestling, and football
have been either improved upon or
added to the curriculum this year.
Girls' P.E. classes have been active in the
field of gymnastics. The girls participate
in partner stunts, pole climbing, and vari-
ous other gymnastic stunts.
The Drug Ed. classes have been involved
in many oral and written activities. These
activities dealt with advertising in alco-
hol, dramatizing the legal aspects in al-
cohol, and viewing films about alcohol
abuse. The classes also studied

New Head Has
Dept. in Hand
All sorts of Art Contests were brewing
and many students prepared art port-
folios to enter in the Regional Scholastic
Awards Contest. Many other students
entered their art work in the 500 Festival,
a collection of Indianapolis Schools' Art,
which is usually displayed on the circle.
The Art Department started the school
year with two new teachers, Ms. Corrie
Wilson, and Ms. Wa r da Gourley, who
replaced Mr. Sheldon Kantor and Mr.
Ms. Wilson was the new Art Department
head, and she taught Craft Arts, Ceram-
ics, and Art Appreciation. She thought
Art Appreciation was a very good course
for serious art students, and said that
more emphasis should be put on this
Ms. Wilson has big plans for the Art
Club, too. She took members to the In-
dianapolis Museum of Art and plans
were made for a long-range trip. The an-
nual Shortridge Art Festival was also held
once again May 10th.

enjoyed the "feeling of warmth" at SHS.

Below-Doretha Watson takes time out of her gen-

A greater interest in the science depart-
ment seems to have caused an increase
in classroom size this year, not only in
the two semester courses, but in the ad-
vanced classes. Ms. Carol Smith, the new
department head, has taken this interest
as an opportunity to try the use of labo-
ratory assistants on a large scale, and try
Seventeen lab assistants were working in
all areas of the department, ranging from
running errands for the science office to
helping teachers set up experiments and
other class projects. Most of the work is
done during the assistants' free periods
for which they receive a small fee, but a
great deal of experience.

Project Star, Student Teacher Associated
Research. During the past summer, two
teams from Shortridge, which consisted
of Ms. Smith and David Thuma, and Ms.
VanHorn and Thomas Williams, took
part in a program that offered them the
opportunity to learn and experience the
functions of research by working with
research scientists. The main purpose of
the project was that the teams would be
able to implement their own project
during the year.
Another program that took place during
the summer was the Project SEED Re-
search Program, which was sponsored
by the American Chemical Society. Two
students, John White and Lucia Spears,
worked in chemical and biological re-
search, respectively, for 10 weeks while
receiving a stipend. This project was also
based on giving students experience in

Advanced Students Compete in Math Contests
The head of the math department, Mr.
Gibson, would like to start the math
clubs again after their coming to a grad-
ual end. If enough people joined the
clubs that Shortridge was once famous
for, the department can get speakers
from Purdue and Butler Universities to
help. Students in algebra and geometry
can join the Hi-Pi club. Those in ad-
vanced algebra, unified math and calcu-
lus who maintain at least a "B" average
and have a math major can join the Mu
Alpha Theta club. Math clubs were very
active for over 54 years, between 1916
and 1971. Ms. Wahl offered to help any
students who want to get them started
As far as the math department goes,
there were no new teachers or equip-
ment. But there will be new textbooks
next year which are supposed to be an
improvement over our present ones.
Two students in advanced algebra and
unified math represented Shortridge in
early March in the National Math Con-
test. The Marion Country Math Day was
May 3rd. There were preliminary tests
for all students in algebra, geometry, uni-
fied and calculus who wanted to partici-
pate. Three students from each level
participated in the county-wide contests.

Students Tested for Study Programs Abroad
Under new guidance, the Foreign Lan-
guage department flourished this year.
After the retirement of Ms. Louise Reiter
last year, Mr. Alain Sutherland took over
as department head and part-time Ger-
man teacher, along with his advanced
Mr. Sutherland also aided I.U. Honors fi-
nalists in German and French. Spanish
students tried out for the program, too.
Last summer, two Shortridge students,
Edward Ramsey and Nathan Thuma,
went to foreign countries on the I.U.
Honors program. Nathan went to France
and Ed to South America.
Among other activities planned, the de-
partment went to Ball State University
for a language "get together", and a Ger-
man class demonstrated a typical day in
a classroom for a hobby show. Language
clubs flourished, and a new club, the
League of Nations, was formed, with
Solomon Kennedy as president. The
League of Nations was a combination of
language clubs formed to promote for-
eign cultures and languages.

DE Job Trains
Distributive Education is a program in
sales and merchandising. The students,
who are mostly juniors and seniors, re-
cieve one credit for the class and one
credit for a job they have in this field.
Many of the jobs are with department
stores such as Sears and Blocks. The stu-
dents find their own job and are hired
on their own merits.
In the classroom two areas are covered:
general studies, and specific education.
The general studies includes human rela-
tions, which is essential in any business
career. The specific studies are designed
to fit the individual's need in the specific
job career in which he is interested.
DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of
America), is sponsored by Mr. Randall
Smith. The students in this club partici-
pate in regional, state, and national com-
petition. There are 15 different contests
in which the students can choose to par-
ticipate. The student chooses to partici-
pate in the contest that involves the area
in which he is interested. Some of the
areas are window display and sales dem-
onstration. The contest usually is made
up of a test to determine how much the
student knows about the subject, and an
activity that gives the student an oppor-
tunity to use the knowledge he has on

Biz Ed. Clubs
COE, (Cooperative Office Education), is
a vocational program for students who
are interested in clerical and secretarial
work. The students receive two credits in
this program: one credit for the class and
one credit for having a job which re-
quires clerical or secretarial skills. The
students are paid for their work like any
other employee. The job gives the stu-
dent both working and learning experi-
ence in this field.
Co-curricular with COE is the OEA club,
sponsored by Ms. Brenda Branham. The
title stand for office Education Associa-
tion and is open to any student inter-
ested in clerical and secretarial fields.
Competition with other OEA clubs in the
city makes this organization more ex-
citing and motivating. One such contest
was held October first, at which time
each club was to enter a ladge to repre-
sent their school's OEA club. Shortridge
won first prize, which was a scrapbook.
There are district, regional and national
contests of the OEA clubs. This year, the
national contest was held in Chicago.
Perhaps one of the biggest events of the
year was the Employer— Employee Ban-
quet, which was held in the spring. As

Career Sampling reached a new peak
of popularity this year, with an aver-

men were involved in the program
than ever before.
Of all the programs offered to stu-
dents, the most popular were those
dealing with health careers and nurs-
ing, with courts and journalism, with
law and government following.
Some students have been hired where
they sampled jobs, at places like 1MB,
the Children's Musemu, B&T Shell,
and Winona Hospital.
As usual, Career Sampling sponsored
the "Senior Thing" in October and the
"Junior Thing" in March.

dence program was presented to stu-
dents in February and March.
The program was devised by Rachael
Beck, Chairperson of the PTA Arts Com-
mittee and Mr. Ben Johnson, Principal,
then further developed and revamped
by a committee made up of Shortridge
faculty and community people.
A grant from the Indiana Art Commis-
sion provided the financial help needed,
and the assistance of Joyce Levin, Fritz
Lieber, and Monte Trammer helped
shape it into a very successful program.
People from all facets of journalism
came to Shortridge and talked to stu-
dents in the west end of the cafeteria
and in room 123 about their work. Some
were: R.K. Shull, for the "News", Claudia
Polley of WNTS, Ronnie Bell for Channel
8, and many other journalists and inde-

standing exchange student from Chile, in
Lantin America. Ricardo lived with the
R.W. Moss family, who have a son and a
daughter attending Shortridge. Ricardo
had a special interests in the area of
science. After graduating from Short-
ridge in the spring, he planned to attend
a university in Chile and study engineer-
ing. Ricardo also likes sports, especially
swimming, football and fishing.

guage bicentennial project for the
next school year.
Many advanced language students
participated in the I.U. Honors pro-
gram, which enables high school ju-
niors to spend two months of the
summer before their senior year in a
foreign country. Practice included
early morning sessions, drills, and
tests. In December it was learned that

concerts, took part in parades, and per-
formed for other schools.
The marching band is made up of the
"A" band members and the pom-pom
girls. It is directed by Mr. Leonard Ben-
ling. Through his direction, the band has
won various first place awards. The band
performed at the Rushville Parade in
Rushville, Ind., and at our own "500"
Festival Parade. Concerts included the
Sweaterman's Concert in March and
ones at schools #86 and #76.
New to Shortridge this year were guitar
classes taught by Mr. Medjeski, who was

the A Band joining them. They played
Christmas carols and part of Handel's
Messiah. Later in the year, they played in
the Sweaterman's Concert. The Orches-
tra plays many different pieces, classical
and modern alike.
The Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs worked
hard this year learning the basics of sing-
ing and music. They are non-performing
groups, although toward the end of the
year they each participated in Glee Club
festivals. After this first year of musical
training, many members will join the A

There lies the plot of the Senior Play, ti-
tled "Design for Murder", which was
presented November fourteenth and fif-
teenth. Unlike times in the past, when
seniors class spirit waned, the cast was
made up entirely of seniors, including
the student director, Slim Bailey. Under
his guidance, and also that of Mr. Phillip
Hirsch, the faculty director, the play was
very successful. Leads were well played
by Gail Smith as Celia, Tyler Jones as
Carlin, the detective, James Johnson as
David Granger, and Ernist Jarret as
Moreno. Other members of the cast
added spice to the production, often
even providing comic relief. Many sea-
soned thespians contributed their talents
to the play.

One of the many prestigious organiza-
tions of Shortridge today is the Inter-
national Thespians Society. This society
is an organization that was originated in
the mid-forties and has continued to
grow steadily. A thespian is one who has
earned the credit equivalent to 100 hours
of stage performance. This credit is used
as reference for acting or backstage pro-
gramming in future years.
Shortridge was one of the earlier troupes
to develop their part in the organization.
Out of three thousand some odd
troupes in Thespians, Shortridge was the
595th to develop.
During the 74-75 school year, foot-
lighters have shown their dramatic ability
through numerous activities. Among
those are the Senior Play "Design for
Murder," the Christmas touring play
"The Christmas Gifts," the traditional
"Junior Vaudeville," and the all-school
play in May.

Xmas Spirit Lights Upon Feeder Schools
This year's Christmas touring play was
"The Christmas Gifts" by Dorothy Su-
merau. The story was about a newly-
wed couple who send meaningless gifts
to friends for Christmas. The holiday was
just a hopeless effort until by the magic
of the Christmas Spirit, the gifts were
given meaning and the true definition of
giving is revived.
Every year the touring troup brings en-
joyment to various feeder schools in the
SHS district. This play gives newcomers
an opportunity to develop acting and

Many Shortridge athletes joined the Fel-
lowship of Christian Athletes here this
year. The object of the group was to re-
late religion with sports. According to
sponsor Mr. Ervin Wright, a student does
not have to be a Christian to join. He
said "You just must believe in some-
thing; if you believe in yourself, then
that's religion." There are no restrictions
to become a member, and female ath-
letes would be accepted, although none
joined it this past year.

terian Church with their Fish Fry, painted
Shortridge locker rooms and cleaned
them up. Members Duddy Reeves,

The Lettermen began working toward
the goal of buying a weight machine by
selling totebags. Additional activities this
year also worked toward this goal.
Once again, our Shortridge Key Club
was active in community and school. Af-
ter our home football game against Bre-
beuf, they cleaned up the football field.
Community-wise, they distributed post-
ers for the Ruth Lyons Christmas Seals

"Toy Shop," packaged envelopes for the
Mother's March Against Polio, and set
up a rest station for bikers participating
in the Diabetes Bike-a-thon. The In-
dianapolis Kiwanis Club sponsored their
activities. The club sold posters to raise
money for their dues.

Cindermen Set 3 School Records
The Blue Devil track team highlighted
their 74 season by breaking three
school records. Marcellus Greene in
the 440 yd. dash, Richard Rourke in
the discus events and Ed Murrell in
the mile run. Marcellus Greene, only a
sophomore last year, set a new time
for the 440 yard dash twice, breaking
his own record the day after he set it
with 49.4 seconds. Richard Rourke
landed his new school record sailing
the discus 133 feet, beating the old
record by more than ten feet. Ed Mur-
rell, the only record-breaking cinder-
man to graduate, clocked in at 10:07
in the mile run.
Head coach Jim Hausmann compiled an
overall 2-8 season but took two runners
to the state finals: Ed Murrell, who
placed fifth in the regionals, and Mike
Greene who placed fifth in the state.

The Shortridge 1974 baseball team
ended another very tough season, under
their new Head coach Mr. John Haynes,
with a record of 3 wins and 12 losses.
One of the outstanding players of 1974
was John White who lead the team with
a batting average of .290 and was sec-
ond in RBI's with 4. Other outstanding
players were Derrick Burks, who had the
second highest batting average, Darryl
Reves who lead the team in RBI's with 6,
and James Bowers who had the only
homerun recorded for the whole year.
The most valuable player was Ray Baker
who graduated last year and who's ser-

1974 Varsity Baseball
Mr. Don King in his first and only year as
golf coach took a largely inexperienced
group and built a formidable team for
the future. First-year golfers Dave White,
Chuck Holstein, John Fewell, and vet-
eran Dan Read all showed great im-
provement over the season and formed
a strong team nucleus. The team finished
9th of 11 teams in the city tourney, beat-

This year's tennis team, coached by Mr.
Steve Tolin, finished the season with one
of the most impressive records in recent
years. The team, led by the three return-
ing lettermen Dan Read, David Thuma,
and Dan Beck, took third place in the
city tourney, and advanced to the semi-
finals in sectional play. The overall
record for the team was a formidable 10
wins and 4 defeats.
Heading the squad, in the #1 position,
was sophomore Dan Beck, who was the
City Singles Champ this year. In the sec-
ond spot was senior Dan Read, and third
was held down by junior David Thuma.
Fourth was junior Steve McLaughlin,
while sophomore Andy McLaughlin was
in the fifth spot. Another McLaughlin,

"This year was a building year. A year of
striving to play together mentally as well
as physically." said Coach Don Thomas
after finishing his third year coaching the
Shortridge Varsity Blue Devils. The Dev-
ils finished with a 6-10 record.
On the final roster, the Satans consisted
of three seniors, one junior, and one
sophomore. Throughout the season,
John Gissendanner, known as the "Ala-
bama Star", was 'Ridge's leading re-
bounder, and top scores, with an aver-
age of 17 points per game. John scored a
total of 326 points this season. "Goose"
Gilbert, a 6'2" guard, led the Devil as-
sists. This senior letterman averaged 11.5
points per game.
The SHS cagers had great potential, but
were held back by not enough concen-
tration toward the end of their game.
During the Sectionals the Devils lost to
their first opponent, North Central, by a
ten point lead.
Although defeated in the first game,
three Satans were chosen for the All-
Sectional team. First was Jay Alley, a 6'3"
forward, scoring an average of 11 points.
Second and third were "Goose" and
John Gissendanner, respectively.
The Reserve basketball team finished the
1974-5 season with seven strong victo-
ries tucked away. The Devil reserve was
headed by Mark Johnson, junior center
forwards, Danny Sulivan and Daniel Bar-
low, and sophomore guards, Delbert
Akers and Kevin Bullock.

Lack of Gym
Volleyball losses were due in part to the
lack of a home court for playing games.
The girls were however able to practice
in the SHS gym. The team this year was
young with only two seniors, Selina
France and Blenda Nolcox. Ms. Harriet
Wisdom, coach, summed up the year by
saying, "We suffered greatly from the
lack of the home court this year. We
hope to start our practice earlier next
year. We have a young team and are
looking forward to a better season next

Ms. Harriet Wisdom is convinced that
the girls had a good season. They started
off with a big win over Broad Ripple (64
to 31 ). The girls have shown great enthu-
siasm in learning different plays and
Most of the girls will be in their third sea-
son next year. Starters this season were:
LeNore and Lenette Williams, Deborah
Nelson, Carolyn Alexander, Paula Mcin-
tosh, Eva Humphreys, and Yvonne Wa-
shum. The team had one regular starting
freshman who contributed a great deal
to the scoring (Carolyn Alexander). Le-
nette Williams was high scorer almost
every game. The only player the team
will be losing this year is Selina France
who is a senior. Betsey "Hatch" Hatchel
was voted the most inspiring member of
the team. The rest of the team included
Linda Williams and Sheri Williams.

The Intra-mural bowling teams of Short-
ridge High School held their interleague
action at Meadows Bowl during the
1974-75 season. Most of the finest
bowlers at SHS contributed their talents
in the league this year. Duddy Reeves,
Crawford Jones, Roger Woodson, Wil-
bert Buckner, Ivan Caudle, Carlos Banks,
Tony Gilbert, Fred Hauck, Richard
Heard, Peter Moss, Rick Jones, and Da-
vid White were many of the pin-point
bowlers who clashed with each other
every week. This season high scores
were tallied. Wilbert Buckner's 212
stunned many bowlers and Rick Jones'
182 helped the "Gutters" cause.
Extremely close matches also prevailed
during this exciting season. The "Stro-
kers" squeezed by the "Gutters" in a
high scoring encounter with only a two

Tryouts were held in the spring for the

a summer of practice and going to camp
at Vincennes University. While at camp,
the Varsity won the highest award
given— the "spirit stick," they competed
for the Miss Vincennes title, Vivian Joy-
ner becoming one of the five finalists.
The squads this year seemed very suc-
cessful leading the fans in cheers, yells,

sulted from the help of their sponsors
Ms. McDowell and Ms. Hunt.

Other events at the dance were contests
for the best dressed couple, and for the
The second evening of Homecoming
consisted of the football game against
Brebeuf High School. Although the
game didn't go well for our team, Short-
ridge fans' spirits were lifted by the half-
time presentation. This show included
routines by the marching band and the
Pom-Pom Girls, and the judging of floats
by the three upper classes. The soph-

piece of work, but they didn't win the
award without stiff competition from the

better world for all." ^

Have you ever wondered who the hand-
ful of administrators is that organizes
most everything at the 'Ridge? These are
the people that carry the heavy load
here at SHS.
Our principal, Mr. Benjamin Johnson, is
the head organizer at SHS. He has a hard
job and everyone recognizes his capa-
bility in handling it.
Mr. Donald Oldham has a number of
things to organize as part of his job as
Vice Principal of Business. Among these
responsibilities, Mr. Oldham is in charge
of the budget, business and grounds, the
deans, the bookstore, the clerical staff,
and the security staff.
Mr. Don King' is a new addition to this
handful of organizers this year. He was
previously head of the SHS science dept.
Mr. King took over for Mr. Riley who be-
came principal of Scecina High School.
Mr. King is faced with the job of organ-
izing the schedules for 2,000 students.

New Things to
Come as High
The Class of 75 will look back on their
four years at Shortridge with a kaleido-
scope of memories. There will always
linger in the mind of every class member
a unique collection of experiences and
events that will characterize his or her
high school years and bring about that
occasional good feeling that comes with

Vaudeville Uses Professional Scripts
For the first year, the junior class
elected all women officers, with
Kay Debow as Pres., Michele
McClure as V.-Pres., LaDonna
Puckett Sec. and Lynn Davis Treas.
Junior Policy was hard at work to
raise money for Junior Vaudeville.
They tried something new this year
by making all five acts scripts from
Carol Burnett. Gloria Myers, as
chairman of V.V., was in charge of
putting the show, including inter-
mission acts, together.

'Ridge Welcomes Largest Group Ever of Frosh
The class of 78 was the largest fresh-
man class ever to have entered Short-
ridge thus far. The freshmen came
from such feeder schools as 86, 59,
Kennedy, and Mapleton-Fall Creek.
Comprised of 597 students, the class
of 78 was able to establish itself in
many extra-curricular activities. The
freshman football team finished the
season with a 8-1-1 record, and this
was the first year there were freshman
girls on the Pom-pom girl squad.
Although they had no sponsor, the
freshmen elected class officers. They
were: Kim Sanders— Pres., Margaret
Dumetz— V. Pres., Phyllis Brown— Sec,
and Robbie Davis— Treas.
Mr. Trabue, the freshman counselor,
said that this freshman class was the
most energetic he had seen in a long

"Shortridge High School was a very special place and I
loved it very much. It evoked in most people feelings of
great loyalty or great hatred— but never, that I knew of, in-
difference. I learned a great deal there, not only in classes,
but even more outside the school building itself, about
friendship, frustration, snobbery, uncertainty, bravado,
bravery, bluster, beauty, hurt and harm, loneliness and love.
It was, in short, very much like life, for better and worse-
life condensed into four short years and several crowded
hallways. I treasure Shortridge not only for the gifts it be-
stowed on me but also for the blows it dealt me, the hard
and lovely lessons I learned in and out of its classrooms that
basically seem to me still to apply, a quarter of a century
Dan Wakefield, Novelist-Journalist
Our thanks to Mr. Richard Johns and the High School Journalism Institute staff, Mr. Richard Cohen and
The Echo staff, Mr. Donald Oldham, Mr. Larry Glaze, our yearbook representative, Mr. Ed Sims and
National School Studios, Mr. Clarence Downey, our photographer, Ms. Webb and Ms. McNiel, the of-
fice personnel and the counselors, James Benn for the cover design, Suzanne Wells for getting us
started, and our deepest, most grateful and most sincere thanks to our dedicated staff and to our advi-
sor, Mr. Robert Houston.
I'd like to start by thanking Mr. Johns for giving me my basic
knowledge of yearbook editing. Thanks to Mr. Cohen for
the use of his friendly staff (only when he didn't need them,
of course). Thanks to all our industrious staff, and most es-
pecially to Suzy Dove, who often did more than her share,
to Gordon Dove, to Liz French and Sandi Schwarzin for
doing the undesirable odd jobs, to Brian Wells, and to
Thomas Williams for his ideas and cooperation. And most
of all I want to express my most heartfelt gratitude to our
patient Mr. Houston, and to Leah, without whose mar-
velous ideas and humor I would have cracked up. Thank

And so ends the 1975 edition of the Shortridge Annual. I
sincerely thank all those individuals who sweated for this
yearbook: Mr. Houston, Liz, Suzy, Lewis, Thomas, Kelley,
and an especially big thank-you to my twin, Nancy. It's
been a lot of work and fun, and I'm not sure in what por-
portions. With the end of the year our self-pride is swept
away at saying good-bye to many friends for the summer.
And seniors leave 'Ridge perhaps with damp eyes and
surely many memories. With the title of Shortridge Alumni,
they leave with a certain feeling of Shortridge pride also in-
stilled in many others.
