'Ridge expresses an idea . . . describes 
over 2,000 unique people. The current 
integrated, jean-clad SHS population has 
worked together to keep our ever- 
changing identity alive. These are the 
people who have supported the Short- 
ridge teams, joined the Student Council, 
various clubs, built homecoming floats 
or helped with other activities. In our ka- 
leidoscope of students, teachers, and 
administrators, a pride thrives. 

Our proud past has set a pattern for 
today's Shortridge. Many former 'Ridge 
students are prominent figures, such as 
Mayor Richard Lugar and author Kurt 
Vonnegut. Our alumni, too, cherish SHS. 
Upon request, they have written to us 
their feelings and memories of Short- 
ridge. Through the years, the pride and 
spirit of Shortridge has raliied on. We 
hope this yearbook will set this year 
apart from the rest and tell the story of 
Shortridge, 1975.

"1 suppose that one never appreciates, 

at the time, just whether he is getting a 

good, mediocre, or poor education at 

the high school level. It's several years 

later, 1 think, before he realizes that the 

fact that he's avoided so many pitfalls, 

hurdled so many barriers and missed so 

many bumps isn't really coincidence, 

but the fact that high school education 

was so solid."

Reading Tested 
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 
Beginning Typists 

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

science in Social Studies 1 through an in- 
class study method. 

Mr. Catus took on the new U.S. I and II 
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.

The new features in the Industrial Arts 
Department include a new diesel engine. 
Diesels are superior to internal com- 
bustion engines because they can 
handle a much heavier load.

Dryer. This is used in speeding up the 
process of drying the cast pages. This is a

ROTC Teaches 

The purpose of the jROTC is to train Ca- 
dets in the basic principles of citizenship. 
Instilling a sense of responsibility, 
through the assumption of leadership, a 
Cadet broadens his ability to cope with 

The ROTC ranks range from basic Cadet 
to Lieutenant Colonel. Freshmen begin 
as Cadets and work their way up 
through higher ranks. 

Members of ROTC also enjoy the privi- 
lege of joining extra activities. These ac- 
tivities are color guards, rifle team, drill 
team, and M.P. duty. These programs 
give the Cadet a chance to test his or her 
skills learned in ROTC. 

The ranking officers this year were: Lt. 
Colonel Evans, Lt. Colonel Howard, Ma- 
jor Williams, Captain Ratcliffe, and Cap- 
tain Randolph.

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 

Gary Brown, the football coach, is one 
of the new teachers in the department 
this year. Ms. Sandra Hunt is the other 
new teacher. She started a swimming 
program for students here. The class of 
about 20 students met at Riverside Com- 
munity Center.

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. 
Ian Fraser. 

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. 

Lgi As the new head, Ms. Wilson said she 
enjoyed the "feeling of warmth" at SHS.

Science Class 
Size Increases 

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 
new projects. 

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. 

Room 301 has become the office for 
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 
French classes. 

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 
Student Talent 

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 
the subject.

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 
the name implies, the students invite 
their bosses to the banquet in apprecia- 
tion for their cooperation in this

Popularity of 
CSP Soars 

Career Sampling reached a new peak 
of popularity this year, with an aver- 
age of thirty students a week ex- 
periencing different jobs. More fresh- 
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. 

New programs were tried, such as an 
open house, a rap session at LaRue 
Carter, an open house at Methodist 
Hospital, 24 students working at the 
polls in November for the National 
Election Service, and going part-time 
to Tech High School for special

Swimming Club Flourishes Under Coach Hunt 

This was Ms. Sandy Hunt's first year as 
sponsor for the Intramural Swimming 
Club. Its 38 members met at Riverside 
Community Center, Tuesday afternoons 
from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Both males and 
females attended. The main purpose of 
the club was swimming for fun, but 
some members were taught different 

According to Ms. Hunt, "The club did 
real well, and the kids had a great time. 
But not enough people knew SHS had a 
swimming club."

Student Council 
Sponsors "Hop" 

The Shortridge Student Council got off 
to a slow start this year. Ms. Mary Ester- 
line, the new sponsor for the group, 
helped president Joye Carter with orga- 
nizational problems and election of new 
members. Homecoming activities were 
sponsored by the council again. Organ- 
izing the dance, queen contests, float 
contests, etc. were delegates to special 
committees who put together their ef- 
forts for a unified homecoming 

The Student Council met bi-weekly to 
accomplish a more comfortable rela- 
tionship between students, their activi- 
ties, and the administration.

Quiz Team Rousts Tech 62-22 

Exercise in Knowledge is definitely a 
growing "sport" at SHS. This year, Short- 
ridge again has produced a dynamite 
squad. Team members Dave White, Da- 
vid Thuma, Rick Jones, and Clayton 
Richardson showed one of their superior 
efforts in a match against Tech on Jan. 9, 
beating them by a score of 62-22. This 
margin was one of the largest ever re- 
corded by a Shortridge team. 

In only a few months of preparation, 
Mrs. Constance Kirby, Quiz Team spon- 
sor, put together a great 1975 Exercise in 
Knowledge team.

Chess Team Captures 
Mid-America Title 
For Third Year 

The Shortridge Chess Team, in a disap- 
pointing season, put together a squad of: 
Richard Heard— first board, Rick Jones- 
second, Clax Richardson— third, David 
Harper— fourth, and Eric Strickland on 
fifth board. 

The team got off to an early start in Sep- 
tember by capturing the Mid-America 
High School Tournament for the third 
straight year. 

In match play, the chess team suffered 
tough losses to Broad Ripple and Arling- 
ton, but defeated Southport, Brebeuf, 
Greenfield, Central, Marshall, and Tech.

Artists Enrich 

Shortridgers enjoyed a two-week visit 
from Claudine Paluzzi, painter and scup- 
tor, who visited us on the Artist-in-Resi- 
dence Program. Ms. Paluzzi visited 
classes, and demonstrated her art to the 
students, using such materials as plaster 
and sand. 

The Artist-in-Residence Program at 
Shortridge is sponsored by the P.T.A. 
and the Indiana Arts Commission. Pay 
for the artists was taken out of grant 
from the Commission and the Indiana 
Foundation for Artists-in-Residence. The 
program brought artists from such fields 
as journalism, music, art, drama, and

As an off shoot of the Artists in Resi- 
dence program, a Journalists in Resi- 
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- 
pendent writers. 

Above— Situated in the cafeteria, the Joumalist-in-Resi-

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

Guitars Great 
In New Group 

Along with regular programs at the 
school, the band performed their own 
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 
assisted by Mr. Rodgers. Students 
learned the fundamentals of guitar and 
other strings.

The A Orchestra, under the leadership of 
Mr. John Medjeski, played at the Christ- 
mas Concert this year with members of 
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 
Capeila Choir. 

A Capeila Choir is traditionaly known for 
singing music without accompaniment 
and for its Choral Classic held every 
Spring. Students are selected by audition 
for this choir. Performances this year 
consisted of auditoriums for the Mayor 
and reknown musicians and out-of-state

Musically inclined students were offered 
Music Theory again this year. The class, 
taught by Mr. Leonard Behling, trained 
students to read, write, sing, play, and in- 
terpret music. Students also took music 
dictation and ear training. 

During the first semester, the class wrote 
small musical pieces for mixed choir and 
piano, and second semester they ven- 
tured into writing pieces for instruments. 
Since the students all had previous musi- 
cal experience, some performed their 
own pieces.

Half of the success of a staged pro- 
duction depends on the scenery, 
lights, and sound and at Shortridge, 
that half is supplied by our stage 

Stage crew members constructed sets 
for the Senior Play, Junior Vaudeville, 
and any other activity presented to 
'Ridgers on the stage. 

To broaden the experience of stage 
crew members, a stagecraft class was

"Whodunit" Quite 

Celia Granger, a genteel woman living in 
a splendid mansion on the Hudson 
River, suddenly finds her well-ordered 
life shattered by the murder of her maid, 

Immediately, she, her son, and all the 
other members of her household are 
suspect. A rugged, probing detective, 
who has admired our heroine for quite a 
while, is called into investigate. Another 
murder follows: this time, the chauffeur, 
Moreno who thought he knew the killer. 
Suddenly, Celia finds herself alone in her 
house but she doesn't know who the 
murderer is! 

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.

SHS Thespians 
Present Drama 

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 
drama skills.

this year were purchased From Carol 
Burnett show. The five acts were Lovely 
Story, Alice Portnoy and the Bank Rob- 
bers, The Old Folks, As the Stomach 
Turns, and Flight 13 to Nowhere. Stu- 
dents also wrote and performed their 
own intermission acts.

sparked the Art Club this year. The club 
went to the Indianapolis Art Museum, 
watched Artists-in-Residence, and spon- 
sored our annual Art Festival May 10th.

ery Thursday from 3:15 to 5:45. The 
charge was 50<t for admission and skate

land, was dismayed at the drop from 100 
members last year down to 35.

Religion Probed 
by F.GA. 

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. 

Members helped at Tabernacle Presby- 
terian Church with their Fish Fry, painted 
Shortridge locker rooms and cleaned 
them up. Members Duddy Reeves, 
Buddy Ross, and Eddy Ross attended 
summer camp in 74.

their ranks this year. The women had to 
have earned a varsity letter, as the men 
do, and this year women begin attending 
the meetings held every other Friday. 

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 
Program, worked in a mental hospital 
"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. 

Initiation ceremonies were held at the 
beginning of the second semester, and 
in the spring. President of the club this 
year was David Huxhold, and the other 
officers were also seniors— Bruce Boh- 
lander— V. Pres., Keith Lasher— Treasurer, 
and Dan Read— Secretary. 

Activities with other schools' Key Clubs 
were planned. Mr. Jerry Steiner was fac- 
ulty sponsor, and there were eight fe- 
male student sponsors.

and discuss books. 

The members of the Great Books Club 
chose what books they wanted to read.

Perfect Paper 
Producers Here 

Shortridge journalists strove to create a 
perfect newspaper with the Echo this 
year. Mr. Richard Cohen held his usual 
position of Director of Publications, and 
the new Editor-in-Chief was Dave 

The Echo participated in several college 
journalism seminars such as Franklin and 
Ball State and also attended Marion 
County Journalism Day at Lawrence 

On December 18th, the Echo-Annual 
Christmas party was held at the home of 
Mia-Lon Walton. Guests were treated to 
"Echo Surprise" made by David Hux- 
hold and Dave White, and a mock cere- 
mony at which "Dave" awards were 
given to several publication staff

First Juniors, 
First Co- Editors 

"First" was the word for the 75 Annual 
staff. The first co-editors, and the first ju- 
niors to act as editors-in-chief were 
Nancy Hernly and Leah Hickerson. Last 
summer Leah and Nancy attended a two 
week training session at Indiana Univer- 
sity for yearbook editors. 

"Pride in Shortridges' Past" was the 
theme for this year's Annual. Pride in 
Shortridge's yearbook was obvious 
among 75 staffers and editors. They 
worked long and hard after school and 
vacations to meet their deadlines. Edi- 
tors and staff members attended the 
Marion County and the Franklin Central 
Press Day seminars to increase their 
journalistic skills.

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.

John White 
Leads Batters 

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- 
vices will be truly missed.

King Builds 
Strong Team 

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- 
ing teams they had lost to earlier in the 
season. The team members agree that 
"The King" was a great coach and were 
sorry to lose him to the vice-

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, 
Joe, was in the first position on the re- 
serve squad. Seniors Dave White and 
John Fewell held down second and third 
positions, respectively. The team was 
rounded out by freshman Bill DeBow, 
with an occasional appearance by Rich- 
ard Heard.

"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.

lacked height, But was strong in over all

Volleyball losses were due in part to the

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

The Shortridge wrestling team get a new

the next big game. 

Tryouts were held in the spring for the 
Varsity and Reserve squads, followed by 
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.

Soccer Team 
Joins League 

Four years of hard work paid off for the 
SHS soccer team as they went into their 
first year of league play. The team par- 
ticipated in a coed league with represen- 
tative teams from seven area high 
schools. A spring record of and 10 was 
bettered in the fall with a 1 and 9 season. 
Practice and consistency of team mem- 
bership helped to produce a winning 
team. Mr. Cochran again was the faculty 
sponsor. CTS student and member of 
the Butler Soccer team, Jay Libby pro- 
vided coaching for the players. Team

Sophs Capture 
Float 1st Prize 

This year, Homecoming was celebrated 
by two evenings of activities. On Octo- 
ber 24th, the first evening, a very suc- 
cessful and entertaining dance was held. 
Music was provided by a local group, 
"Black Thorn Rose", while disc jockey 
Roger Halloway acted as the Master of 
Ceremonies for the presentation of the 
Homecoming queen and princesses. 
Other events at the dance were contests 
for the best dressed couple, and for the 
best dancers. 

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- 
omores received first place for their 
piece of work, but they didn't win the 
award without stiff competition from the 
Junior and Senior classes.

"I think the most outstanding thing about Shortridge High School when I was there from 1940- 
44 was the "spirit" of team work among the students and faculty, the faculty in providing the 
best education possible for all students and building in each of us the desire to make this a 
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. 

Shortridge's Director of Guidance is Mr. 
Peter C Davis. He coordinates guidance, 
counseling and testing, evaluates credit 6 
and helps with college entrance

Concern and a sense of humor have 
aided deans Ms. Betty Garret and Mr. 
Francis Carter in handling their many- 
faceted jobs at Shortridge. The most im- 
portant tasks in their busy schedules 
were helping students with social, emo- 
tional, and subject problems, and just 
generally helping out and answering 
whey they could. 

Mr. Carter has been Dean of Men for 
three years, while Ms. Garrett has held 
her position as Dean of Women for two 
years, with previous experience in the 
Athletic and Guidance departments. 

Both deans express an avid interest in 
their work, and a sincere motivation to 
help and improve students where 

Students and faculty were protected and 
secure thanks to our security guards, 
headed by Sergeant Robert Taylor. 
Guards maintained friendly relations 
with students, while still enforcing order, 
making them popular at 'Ridge.

"Activity" Word 
For Seniors 

Activity describes the senior perfectly. 
The Senior Council generated much sup- 
port and enthusiasm for the Junior and 
Senior Prom, the Senior Class Play, and 
Homecoming festivities. 

Innovation was a trademark for the class 
of 75 and this year's Senior Council has 
maintained that standard by sponsoring 
the first Annual Basketball Homecoming 
Dance in February. The Basketball 
Homecoming featured a King rather 
than having a Princess as the Football 
Homecoming did.

"Where to 
From Here? . . ." 

"Where to from here? . . ." is a mind- 
twisting question that is asked by every 
senior at one time or another. Fortu- 
nately, Shortridge's "Senior Thing" pro- 
vides uncertain seniors with an opportu-

than 150 colleges, universities, and local

New Things to 
Come as High 
School Ends 

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 

you all.

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.
