BUILDING — Shortridge High 
School has been at 3401 N. Meridian for 
fifty years. It was dedicated in 1928. 
Since then, Shortridge has had a shaky 
future. For years it has been threatened 
with closing. Recently it has been pro- 
vided with new foundations for an even 
longer future. The school has been 
promised new facilities and is expand- 
ing physically. Shortridge is also ex- 
panding in population. Because stu- 
dents from private and parochial 
schools are transferring to Shortridge, it 
is growing. 

However, BUILDING is more than a 
structure with new facilities and new 
people. BUILDING is growing and 
changing, and adding new interests to 
your life. It is preparing yourself for life 
after high school. BUILDING is adopt- 
ing values and ideas. BUILDING is also 
progressing toward a goal and forming 
relationships with people you en- 
counter. 

Shortridge is a changing establish- 
ment; expanding, growing — BUILD- 
ING.

Beautiful Sites Surround SHS 



The community offers much to the 
Shortridger. There are businesses, 
shops, and stores ranging from King's 
Drugstore to the Viking Bakery and Big 
Fella's. Churches sponsor sports pro- 
grams, youth meetings, and religious 
services. Public services, such as the 
Metro, are used by students every day. 
The community also offers special pro- 
grams out of school. Shortridgers par- 
ticipate in math, poetry, and chemistry 
contests, the Indiana University Honors 
Program in Foreign Language, Minority 
Engineering, journalism workshops, 
and political conferences. 

Shortridge depends on the commu- 
nity for support of programs and ac- 
tivities. Parents are involved with team 
sports, parent-teacher organizations, 
and volunteer work. The ECHO, the 



ANNUAL, the program for Junior Vau- 
deville, and the programs for various 
sports depend on ads from businesses 
and patrons. 

Shortridge is a neighborhood school. 
Two of its feeder neighborhoods are 
naturally integrated. This, and the fact 
that the community showed its concern 
when closing was threatened are two 
reasons that Shortridge was kept open. 

The community would do poorly 
without Shortridge. Attending a 
neighborhood school increases stu- 
dents' pride in their community. We 
are proud of the Shortridge community.

beautiful sight for the students who walk home

The Main Office 

An Open Letter to Shortridge Stu- 
dents: 

Have you ever gone into the Main Of- 
fice without a specific reason? It might 
be worth your while to walk in and ab- 
sorb the atmosphere. I must warn you, 
though, not to get in the way. There are 
a few chairs around; take a seat in one 
and just look around you. 

Mr. Johnson, Mr. King, or Mr. Old- 
ham are sure to walk by, enter their of- 
fices and continue their work. Their se- 
cretaries are busy typing, filing, phon- 
ing, or taking their very precious coffee 
breaks. Teachers, parents, custodians, 
security police, and students are likely 
to be arranging plans, solving prob- 
lems, receiving orders or just talking 
with the friendly people in high places. 
The telephone is being answered as 
quickly as it rings. The mail has just 
arrived and is being distributed. 

The Main Office has an air of confu- 
sion. But this is an orderly confusion. 
Everything is being taken care of. 

Visiting the Main Office will give you 
another image of this BUILDING we 
call Shortridge.

Teacher Job Action Closes Schools 







When the Indianapolis Public School 
teachers started the school year they did 
not have a signed contract. Many stu- 
dents did not even know of this dispute 
until October 19, 1977. 

October 19, 1977 — city teachers plan 
work stoppage to force settlement — 
teachers encouraged by Indiana Educa- 
tion Association to take "personal 
business leave" day on October 20 — 
Kalp says every effort will be made to 
staff schools. 

October 20, 1977 — teacher job action 
cripples schools — eight of eleven city 
high schools, thirty-two of one hundred 
and one elementary and junior high 
schools closed or affected — one 
thousand teachers attend rally at H.U. 
Brown Theater in Butler University. 

October 31, 1977 — teacher represen- 
tatives push contract ratification — con- 
tracts drawn up after two days of 
negotiations — key issues: increased 
salary for teachers, improvement with 
smaller class sizes, reduction in the 
number of split classes. 

November 9, 1977 — city teachers 
ratify contract nine months after talks 
began — vote is 1749 to 317 — Dean 
Brown, executive director of Indiana 
Education Association, says, "The 
teacher association hopes to start talks 
on next year's contract within a few 
weeks; then teachers can see the new 
contract in June and return with a more 
positive attitude."

Homecoming Festivities a Success 



Homecoming activities started off 
with a leap this year with Spirit Week. 
Freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and 
seniors decorated halls on the third 
floor. These halls were judged on Fri- 
day, with the Senior Hall coming in 
first. Spirit megaphones and pompons 
were sold by the Junior Class and the 
Student Council respectively. 

The Homecoming game, SHS vs. 
Wood, started at 7:00 p.m. with Wood 
kicking to Shortridge. Touchdowns 
were made by Frank Ovelton, Mike 
Sanders, Mike Davis, and Hiram 
Wheat. The final score was 44-7, SHS 
over Wood. 

Half time activities included a parade 
of the class floats and the Homecoming 
Court. King Michael Butler and Queen 
Dianna Davidson represented the Se- 
nior Class. The Junior Princess was 
Sheila Ferguson and her escort was 
David Girton. Sophomore Princess 
Bernice Warren was escorted by Fred- 
die Banks, and the Freshman Princess 
was escorted by Sonny Bates.

"It's never routine . . . it's interest- 
ing," said Officer Donna Douglas of her 
job as security police officer at Shor- 
tridge. The newest member on Shor- 
tridge's force of five police was Officer 
Smith. Sergeant Lockett was the veteran 
of the squad with seven years of experi- 
ence. To qualify for this job, the five 
police had to take training with the In- 
dianapolis Police Department. Training 
included karate, first aid, communica- 
tions codes, coronary pulmonary resus- 
citation, and knowledge of criminal 
law. After training, some officers re- 
quest to be placed at a specific school. 
The Shortridge security police agree 
that the worst part of their job is having 
to arrest a student after all else has 
failed. 

Although their official title is security 



Security Police at Shortridge 



police, they are often called "security 
guards." The difference between 
guards and police is that police have 
more training. Sergeant Lockett hopes 
that they will soon be commonly refer- 
red to as security police. 

When someone says, "security 
police," it is easy to think of a vicious 
guard, armed with mace and a german 
shepherd. The Shortridge security 
police have changed this picture to one 
of persons to be respected.

Cafeteria Has Efficient System 




Most students and faculty take the 
cafeteria for granted. The seventeen- 
member staff works hard to please the 
crowd; their day begins at 5:00 a.m. and 
usually lasts until 3:00 p.m. Mrs. Pollitt, 
the food manager for Shortridge, also 
makes all of the baked desserts. When 
asked if she enjoyed her job, Mrs. Pol- 
litt stated, "I wouldn't be here if I 
didn't." 

Most of the food used in the cafeteria 
is purchased on bids. Companies send 
the bids to the Education Center and 
they choose some and check their 
choice with Mrs. Pollitt. This process 
repeats itself twice a year. 

The youngest on the staff this year 
was Darnice McGraw, in her early 
twenties. The staff worked well with 
the equipment they had, making for an 
efficient system.

Shortridge Celebrates 114th Birthday 



The March 24th, 1928 issue of The In- 
dianapolis News stated, "Many a grad- 
uate of Shortridge High School gasps 
with astonishment when he views the 
impressive new building at North 
Meridian and 34th Streets that is near- 
ing completion." This was understand- 
able, considering the history of Shor- 
tridge as explained in The News. From 
1864 to 1884 the Indianapolis High 
School, as it was then called, met in 
three different locations downtown. A 
permanent structure was built in April 
of 1884 at Michigan and Pennsylvania 
Streets. The new building was consi- 
dered to be modern for the times, and 
both students and teachers marveled at 
the wide corridors and the beautiful 
main staircase. 

In 1897 the name Shortridge High 
School was adopted in honor of A.C. 
Shortridge, who was responsible for the 
organization of the school in 1864. 

But as all things change, Shortridge 
too changed, and the need for a new 
building became evident. In 1928 the 
present building at 34th and Meridian 
Streets opened. The 1928 Annual was 
dedicated to "the old building" at 
Michigan and Pennsylvania Streets. 

Besides structural changes, Shor- 
tridge has also gone through two world 
wars, twenty- three United States presi- 
dents, and sixty-one 500-mile races. 

As the 1928 Annual was dedicated to 
"the old building," it is necessary to 
remember the success of the fifty years 
Shortridge has had in this building and 
the one hundred and fourteen years it 
has had as a school. 

Long live Shortridge!

There has been some doubt over the va- 
lidity of a high school diploma. The gradua- 
tion of a California high school student in 
1977 caused much discussion about the ac- 
countability of schools. It became a national 
issue when the student's parents sued the 
school system. In response to this case, In- 
dianapolis Public Schools administered the 
California Achievement Test in September 
of 1977. From the results, the faculty deter- 
mined common strengths and weaknesses. 
For the second semester classes were orga- 
nized to fill special needs. We are BUILD- 
ING on our strengths and dealing with our 
weaknesses.

Film-making Classes New at Shortridge 



Enrollment in the Art Department in- 
creased this year, especially in the 
jewelry classes, according to depart- 
ment head Mrs. Corrie Wilson. 

The department spent the first semes- 
ter preparing for the artist-in-residence 
filmmaker and the new filmmaking 
class that he helped teach the second 
semester. Approximately fifty students 
signed up for the new class, which was 
made possible by a matching grant 
from the Indiana Arts Commission. 

Second semester students partici- 
pated in the Scholastic Regional Contest 
held at L.S. Ayres. They also sent in en- 
tries to the 500 Art Contest. Senior stu- 
dents kept themselves busy preparing 
portfolios to sent to colleges. Art work 
of students in all classes was displayed 
on the third floor, adding a bright 
touch. 

The Art Department continues to 
grow and expand to meet the increasing 
interest of the students.

Photography Exposure Enlarges SHS 



Although Photography classes were a 
fairly new addition to Shortridge, they 
grew in popularity this year. The 
classes began in the spring of 1977 after 
the completion of a new darkroom. The 
number of students enrolled in the 
course this year was small, but more are 
expected to sign up next year. 

With the help of 35 mm cameras, stu- 
dents photographed, developed, and 
enlarged their own pictures. Many of 
these photographs were then entered in 
the Scholastic Arts Contest, the 500 Fes- 
tival of Arts Contest and other lo- 
cally sponsored photography contests. 

According to Photography teacher 
Ms. Libs, "Photography is as important 
for an individual's own self-enrichment 
as other art forms. The study of photog- 
raphy is also useful in other job fields a 
student may be interested in."

Science Dept. Aids Student Growth 



This year the Science Department's 
main goal was to get students interested 
in science and encourage them to take 
more extensive and advanced courses at 
Shortridge. This was accomplished by 
the addition of several new types of 
equipment. One of these was an Envi- 
ronmental Growing Chamber which al- 
lowed students to change the environ- 
ment in the chamber and see the reac- 
tion this change had on plants. 

Another goal was to emphasize the 
metric system in General Science 
courses as well as in Chemistry, Biology 
and Physics classes. 

According to department head, Mrs. 
Smith, the world around one is the 
study of science and to further that 
study, science courses are imperative to 
a student's growth.

The Physical Education and Health 
Department underwent one major 
change this year. Physical Education 
classes were coed! Both male and female 
students had to participate in such 
sports as gymnastics, archery, basket- 
ball and wrestling. (Girls only had to 
learn the pins in wrestling.) 

In Health classes, teachers tried to 
make students better acquainted with 
basic health and anatomy so that they 
would be able to comprehend and 
apply the total health program to their 
future needs. 

Once again, the Physical Education 
and Health Department continued to 
help students exercise both body and 
mind.

Language Arts Department New at SHS 



One of the most unusual changes at 
Shortridge this year was the formation 
of the Language Arts Department. This 
was accomplished by combining the 
English and the Foreign Language De- 
partments. Mr. Allen Sutherland, for- 
merly the head of the Foreign Language 
Department, took on the challenging 
job of organizing the new department. 
He also continued teaching Humani- 
ties, Career English, and French classes. 

The Language Arts Department re- 
ceived one new teacher this year, Mrs. 
Elfi Cicak. Mrs. Cicak, a former German 
citizen, taught all of the German classes 
as well as the first year French students. 

With these combined forces, this new 
Language Arts Department promises to 
grow stronger eveiy year.

Foreign Languages Offer 
Cultural Exposure 



The Language Arts Department has 
the largest variety of clubs in the school. 
This year with the aid of Mrs. Elfi 
Cicak, the German Club received new 
life and participated in a variety of ex- 
periences. The Russian Club main- 
tained their usual activities and is still 
the only club of its kind in the city. The 
Language Arts Department also sup- 
ported the Quill and Scroll and National 
Honor Society. These clubs are highly 
selective and choose pupils for mem- 
bership on the basis of grade point av- 
erage and student participation in 
school activities. 

According to Department head Mr. 
Allen Sutherland, "The Language Arts 
Department is working beautifully with 
the help of all of the faculty and staff.

Home Ec. — More Than Cooking and Clothing 



What was that delicious smell coming 
from the second floor that made your 
mouth water in English class? And 
where did all those girls get those great 
looking outfits? All this and more were 
products of the Home Economics De- 
partment right here at Shortridge.! 

The department went all out this year 
and added a new class, Needle-art. It 
also expanded on Clothing classes with 
an end of the year fashion show as well 
as entering some students in the 7th 
district style show. 

In Foods classes teachers emphasized 
correct serving practices as well as the 
basics of food nutrition. 

Hard work and determination by de- 
partment head Mary Davis and her staff 
helped make one of the most popular 
departments at Shortridge.

The Industrial Arts Department re- 
mained fairly unchanged this year. Me-

Power Mechanics proved to be the most 
popular classes. 

The department still feels Industrial 
Arts is a necessary part of everyone's 
school experience and encouraged girls 
to enroll as well as boys. 

The Print Shop continued to print all 
the school stationery, corridor passes 
and most important of all, our school 
paper, the ECHO. 

Department head Mr. C.J. Thomas 
said, "We want students to become 
familiar with as many industrial 
processes as possible so that they may 
be in a better position to select one as 
their life's work."

The start of a new school year 
brought to the Shortridge Math De- 
partment Mrs. Janeen Wilcox, the new 
department head. Under her leadership 
the department laid the foundation for 
expansion and growth. For the first 
time in recent years a calculus class was 
taught and there were more students 
enrolled in Advanced Math than ever 
before. Outside of school, students 
showed interest by participating in 
local, regional, and national math con- 
tests. 

The goal this year was to generate 
even more enthusiasm for the depart- 
ment so that students would want to 
continue taking mathematics courses 
after the required year was completed. 

As Mrs. Wilcox says, "We want them 
to be able to function when they get out 
of high school whether they choose to 
go on to college or not."

The History Department has lost 
members of its teaching staff in the past 
few years but its quality of education 
has by no means fallen below par. 

Government students were given op- 
portunities to experience real life prob- 
lems confronting government nation- 
ally and internationally. 

The American History classes were 
taught by Mrs. Jean Jackson. She stres- 
sed map skills to bring a wider under- 
standing of our country's geography.

Business Booms at SHS 



The Business Department was ex- 
panded this year in more ways than 
one. Besides increased enrollment in 
classes, especially Typing, Data Process- 
ing and Record Keeping, the depart- 
ment received two new machines. 
These machines, an offset printing 
machine and a word processing 
machine enabled pupils to receive a 
more extensive study of modern busi- 
ness techniques. 

The department tried to show all stu- 
dents the importance of business train- 
ing for college-bound students as well 
as those not planning to attend college. 

Through these changes, Shortridge 
continued to give its students an up- 
to-date business education.

Beautiful Voices 
Fill Fourth Floor 

Vocal music, a tradition here at Short- 
ridge, has been kept at its finest by Mr. 
Myron El. Mr. El, who has been a 
teacher here for two years, says, "We 
have a lot of girls that look good for the 
future, but we need more males. I think 
that most males are influenced by their 
peer group to think vocal music is 'girl- 
ish', but it's not. It's a form of art 
through which an individual can ex- 
press himself in any way he chooses." 

Mr. El has really done a fantastic job 
for vocal music here at Shortridge, from 
A Cappella choir to the senior musical, 
"The Me Nobody Know."

Music Department Keeps Up High Standards 



The Marching Band, directed by Mr. 
Leonard Behling, began its season two 
weeks before school was in session. Al- 
though the band had to recuperate from 
the loss of so many seniors last year, 
they made an outstanding performance 
nevertheless, with much planned for 
the Concert Band. 

This year marked the 45th annual 
Sweaterman Concert. Originating in 
1932, its main purpose is to perform 
several pieces of serious, high quality 
music for the public. 

The band's fund raising events were 
combined with the entire Music De- 
partment in the selling of family por- 
traits. The money was used for the 
purchase of new band uniforms and 
choir robes. Money was also raised by 
the Band Boosters during the home 
football games through the operating of 
the concession stands. 

"This year's band is a growing band; 
very young, very immature, but with 
tremendous potential!" said Mr. Behl- 
ing.

Band music was not the only music 
coming from the fourth floor this year. 
Violins, violas, and other string in- 
struments added their voices to the air. 

Although the String Ensemble lost 
quite a few members to the 1977 gradu- 
ation, it still kept up the tradition of 
fine music. The Ensemble though 
small, was determined to leave its mark 
on 1977-78. Through hard work and lots 
of practice, it was able to send half of its 
members to the High School All-City 
Orchestra, giving Shortridge. a good 
representation.

Although the actual scores for individual 
teams were not outstanding, the interest in 
sports at Shortridge has grown. Students 
who didn't participate in sports still 
showed their spirit by supporting the vari- 
ous teams. This support came in the form of 
cheering the team on at the games, buying 
candy and participating in special game ac- 
tivities. 

Four new coaches were added to the staff. 
Mr. Irwin coached the soccer team. The new

When you finish with a five and eight 
record it doesn't appear that you had a 
good season; but Steve Tolin's 1977 
Tennis team had a good year despite 
the bad record. In tennis team members 
play different sets: number one singles, 
number two singles, number three 
singles, number one doubles, and 
number two doubles. On this year's 
team Senior Joe McLaughlin played 
number one singles and finished with a 
five and seven record. Randy Brooks, a 
Junior, played number two singles and 
finished with a five and nine record. 
Brooks was also chosen to be the team's 
Most Valuable Player. Rod Smith 
played number three singles. The num- 
ber one doubles team was composed of 
John Payton and Harold Pettigrew. 
They finished with an eight and six 
record. The number two doubles team 
consisted of Darren Smartt and David 
Girton. The three reserve players were 
Matt McLaughlin, Damon Clark, and 
John Brown. 

Coach Tolin's season was capped by a 
seventh place in the city tournament, 
which was very respectable. They 
played their home matches at Riverside 
Park. Next year's season promises to be 
a good one.

The Shortridge girls' track record was 
broken last year in many events. Cathy 
Mayburry broke the mile run, Angela 
Murry the 440 yard dash, Diane Murrell 
and Toshi Knight broke the record for 
the 880 yard run. Patricia Williams 
broke the shot put record, Valerie 
sharpe the high jump, and Cynthia Ap- 
pleton the long jump. The Softball 
record was broken by Rochelle Jones. 

Their season record was two wins 
and six losses. They placed ninth in 
both the City and the Sectional Tour- 
neys. They also placed second in the At- 
tacks Coed Invitational track meet. 

Special awards went to Karen Cham- 
bers who was voted most valuable 
player, while Patricia Williams and 
Cynthia Appleton were the most im- 
proved players. The outstanding Senior

Rasdell Takes 77 MVR 



The 1977 boys' track team, coached 
by Jim Hausmann, had a record of three 
wins and four losses. 

Greg "Squirrel" Rasdell was chosen 
Most Valuable Runner. He gathered the 
most points for the season. Squirrel was 
the strongest sprinter of the team. The 
competition was fierce in the 100-yard, 
200-yard dashes and the 880-yard relay. 
The team expects a lot of him next sea- 
son. 

The Most Outstanding Performer was 
Raymond Howard. He was chosen for 
his performance in the Sectionals. 
Raymond was bothered with a leg in- 
jury all year, but he stayed with it and 
did well. 

The coach's choice for Most Improved 
Runner was John Cougan. His time in 
the mile run at the start of the year was 
disappointing. With much hard work 
each day John brought his time down 
considerably. Coach Hausmann is look- 
ing for an even better performance next 
year.

Crawley has High Hopes 



The Blue Devils' Golf team suffered a 
disappointing 2 and 10 season in '11 . 
However, things are looking up. Said 
Coach Richard Crawley, "The team 
scores were much better than last 
year's." The Devils had only one senior 
on the team. With three freshmen and 
one sophomore, the future looks bright. 

The Satans finished fifth in the 
Northwest Invitational and thirteenth 
in the city. Their score of 363 was the 
best Sectional team score in years. 

Senior Andy McLaughlin was the 
team's top golfer, with an average of 
forty-one.

The 1977 cross-country team had 
their best season in a long time, with 6 
wins and 8 losses. Coach James Haus- 
mann had nine runners make the team 
this year which is more than they have 
had in the past years. 

John Cougan III was chosen the Most 
Valuable Runner. He ran in the number 
one position all year. His best time for 
the 2V2 mile course was 13 minutes and 
31 seconds. The number two runner 
was sophomore Kenny Crossland who's 
best time was 13 minutes and 53 sec- 
onds. Overall the team did very well, 
and with the number of underclassmen, 
should be very good next season. 

The team finished 13th in the city, 
with Johnny Cougan leading the team, 
placing 43rd out of over 200 runners.

Soccer Team Falls Short of Hopes 



The soccer team fell short of hopes in 
the fall of '77 , coming in last in the 
league. With the coaching of Mr. Stan 
Irwin and practices throughout the win- 
ter, the team improved for the spring 
season. The fall of 1977 brought com- 
plete uniforms for the team. Unfortu- 
nately, they didn't arrive in time for 
team pictures. 

As always the foreign exchange stu- 
dents gave life and skill to the team. 
Outstanding was Ali Coulibaly from 
the Ivory Coast. Alfredo Naranjo from 
Chili helped in the fall. Andrew Mak- 
witz from Israel gave light at the end of 
the tunnel to the defense. 

Soccer in general in Indianapolis is 
becoming more and more popular. 
With over sixty high school and junior 
high teams and prospects for a profes- 
sional team by the end of '78, it is easy 
to see that soccer is fast becoming a 
major sport.

The 1977-78 football season had more 
surprises than head coach Gary Brown 
could ever imagine. First, coach Brown 
had one of the largest turnouts as over 
sixty-five players tried to make this 
year's team. Second, coach Brown's 
team finished with a six win and four 
loss record instead of the expected four 
wins and six losses upsetting highly 
rated Washington (6-0), Howe (20-0), 
and Brebeuf (26-7). The third surprise 
was that the Shortridge defense only 
gave up 11.8 points a game on the aver- 
age. Fourth, and maybe the best sur- 
prise of all, was that coach Brown had 
two of his players (Tony Williamson 
and Darrell Poston) make the first team 
of the All-City Football Squad. Tony 
Williamson was also named to the UPI 
All-State team while Darrell Poston re- 
ceived Honorable Mention. Williamson 
led this year's great defensive unit in 
almost every area. He had 71 tackes, 36 
assists, 13V2 sacks, and 5 fumble re- 
coveries. The offensive unit had a tough 
first part of the year, but with the return 
of Wingback Frank Ovelton, things 
started to click. Alphonzo Bailey's pas- 
sing and running along with help from 
Kenny Peacock, assisted the Devils 
greatly.

Bright spots were hard to find in 
the 1977-78 boys' basketball season. 
The Blue Devil team finished with a 5 
and 15 record. Coach Don Thomas 
had a great collection of talent and 
height, but the team just could not 
put it together. All-City forward, se- 
nior Joe Ward, was one of the few 
outstanding players on this year's 
team. Ward led the team in scoring 
with a 19 point average. He also led in 
rebounds. The reserve team was 
coached by Rod Trabue. High scorers 
were David Smith, Reggie Gibbs, and 
Hiram Wheat. The freshman team 
had a great year, led by Jerome Jor- 
man and Jeff Sample. All three 
coaches were so impressed with these 
players that Sample was moved up to 
the reserve team, and Jorman went to 
the varsity team. He scored six points 
in the sectional game against 
Washington. 

The sectional game was full of ten- 
sion and excitement. The score vol- 
leyed back and forth by small leads. 
The final two points were scored by 
Ernie Sellers, but unfortunately there 
wasn't enough time to score another 
basket and win against top-rated 
Washington. The final score was 
GWHS 48 — SHS 47.

Females Have a (BASKET) Ball 



1977-78 Shortridge Devilette basket- 
ball team had a discouraging season, 
finishing with a 5 win and 6 loss record. 
The Devilettes, coached by Ms. Harriett 
Wisdom, were led in scoring by multi- 
talented Yvonne Washum. Miss 
Washum finished the season with a 
20.0 scoring average. This season's top 
rebounder was Valerie Sharpe. The Re- 
serve team was coached by Melanie 
Hughes. This was her first year at Short- 
ridge. Besides Washam and Sharpe, 
some of the outstanding reserve players 
were Addie Jackson, Collette Ross, and 
Rhonda Collins. The Devilette's season 
ended with a 49-46 loss to the Brebuf 
Braves in the Sectionals.

Mat Men In (W)right Direction 



Many Shortridgers don't know that 
the most successful SHS team of the 
season was the 1977-78 wrestling team, 
coached by Mr. E. Wright. They 
finished the season with a most impres- 
sive 10 and 4 record. They also took first 
place honors in the Edgewood and 
Manual wrestling tournaments and 
finished third in the Tipton tourney. 
The grapplers placed second in the sec- 
tionals and advanced six wrestlers to 
the regional competition. They were 
seniors Russell Quarles, Rick Williams, 
Darrell Poston, Eric Anderson, and ju- 
niors Leland Brown and David Collins. 
Although Collins was the only one to 
make it to semi-state, and was defeated 
there, Mr. Wright was proud of his 
team. Next year should be even better 
for the team as many of this year's 
members will be returning.

5E HIGH SCHOOC 



VOLLEYBALL SET UP FOR 
BUMPY SEASON 



The Girls' Volleyball Team was 
coached this year by Mrs. Medarda 
Pope, a new Shortridge faculty 
member. The Varsity-Reserve team 
consisting of sixteen girls was fairly 
young this year because a majority of 
last year's Varsity squad did not return. 
The Reserve squad was composed of 
three sophomores and three freshmen. 
Said Mrs. Pope of the team, "They 
never lacked spirit or perseverence." 
Although they played all three games in 
each match, the team just couldn't pull 
it all together to win the necessary two 
games out of three. But the girls made a 
comeback in the sectionals by beating 
Brebeuf in the first round. 

The Most Valuable Player, based on 
sportsmanship, leadership, and player 
ability, was Sherry Williams. The best 
servers, based on points scored, were 
Valerie Sharpe and Cheryl Wilson. The 
team's managers were Pearl Watts and 
Carmella Zachery. The managers were 
in charge of keeping records, maintain- 
ing equipment, and cheering the team 
on. 

Mrs. Pope plans to return as coach 
next year and has high hopes for a bet- 
ter season.

INTRAMURAL BOWLING 



The Intramural Bowling team, 
coached by Mr. Jerry Steiner, pulled to- 
gether the effort to place fifth in the '77- 
'78 season of the Marion County Bowl- 
ing League. The team played at the 
Meadows Bowl. Mr. Steiner said of the 
team, "Over all we had a pretty good 
season, but we just didn't have enough 
high average bowlers." 

The bowling team consisted of four 
teams, with good players such as Tony 
Gilbert, Robert McNeil, Bill DeBow, 
and James Gruver. Mr. Steiner readily 
encouraged any young women at Shor- 
tridge to get on the team. There weren't 
any special prerequisites. "All you need 
is practice and to know how to release 
the ball," stated Mr. Steiner. 

Although you have to supply your 
own equipment and pay the cost per 
game, bowling can pay off in the long 
run. Bowling is a recreational sport 
which can prove to be relaxing.

Tumbling in the morning? The only 
tumbling most people do in the morn- 
ing is out of bed. This was not enough 
for about twenty Shortridgers. Tuesday 
through Friday of each week from seven 
to eight you could find those students 
in the gym with Ms. Sandra Hunt 
tumbling away. 

Intramural Gymnastics was offered to 
anyone interested in developing his or 
her skills. Ms. Hunt required all the 
cheerleaders to attend at least twice a 
week. From forward rolls to aerials, it 
all happened in Shortridge's gym.

Long Hard Season for Bat-men 



The 1976-77 Blue Devil baseball team 
finished a disappointing season with 
seven wins and fifteen losses. The Dev- 
ils were once again coached by Mr. 
John Haynes and Mr. Steve Tolin. This 
year's team was hurt by injuries and by 
grades, losing no less than five key 
players. The teams most valuable player 
was Mike Sanders, who played first 
base. Sanders and Mark Wallen tied for 
batting honors, each hitting .365. Wal- 
len, who played shortstop, was the 
team's best defensive player. Another 
good player for Coach Haynes was Lon- 
nie McFarland, a sophomore, who 
played right field. Lonnie led the team 
in stolen bases with ten in ten attempts. 
He also batted .333. Sanders also led the 
team in homeruns with four, and runs 
batted in with sixteen. Coach Haynes is 
looking forward to next season as his 
team was able to score, but not able to 
stop the other team from scoring. They 
lost games by scores of 12-8 Cathedral, 
13-7 Ben Davis, 10-9 Tech.

There are many new faces at Short- 
ridge, ranging from freshmen, to se 7 
niors, to teachers. All these new faces 
brought in many new and different 
ideas adding variety to Shortridge." 

The Shortridge family is growing and 
expanding. With students transferring 
from private and parochial schools, the 
flavor of this school is changing. There 
are no longer riots and gunfights. 
Teachers are not afraid to keep their 
doors open. Shortridgers are getting 
away from the hoodlum society and 
moving toward sophistication. This 
movement is BUILDING.

ADMINISTRATION 
PLANS FUTURE 

The main goal of this year's adminis- 
tration was to arrange for the renova- 
tion and remodeling of Shortridge, the 
building. But this in no way meant neg- 
lect of the students, the people who use 
the building. The big guys may have 
been at the top, but they were not out of 
reach. 

Mr. Benjamin Johnson, Shortridge 
principal for five years, is not as for- 
midable as his title may imply. He is 
never too busy to share a few words 
with a distressed student. 

Mr. Donald Oldham is vice-president 
in charge of budget, building, and 
grounds. He has held this position for 
five years. 

The vice-president in charge of cur- 
riculum and supervision is Mr. Donald 
King. For the past four years he has had 
the frustrating job of scheduling 
classes. 

The administration is greatly respon- 
sible for Shortridge's past success and 
they are working now for an even better 
future.

SENIORS 



When the class of '78 entered the portals of Shortridge as 
freshmen, an aura of unremitting triumph prevailed. The 
class of '78, the largest class in the history of Shortridge, 
boasted 600 strong. 

Unity, the dominating factor essential to their existence, 
bolstered the freshmen of 1974 into a successful high school 
career. ^ 

The spirit of 78 was ignited in '75-76 when the sopho- 
more class proved superior in unity during the class spirit 
competitions. The importance of the closing of the Water- 
gate scandal, the up-coming Bicentennial celebrations, and 
peace ringing on the national front aided the wise-fools in 
their quest for knowledge and truth. 

With the emergence of their junior year, great challenge 
came to the spirit of Shortridge; once again the life of the 
school was endangered. As detrimental plans were made 
for the phasing-out of Shortridge, concerned students, par- 
ents and faculty members rallied in support of the perpetual 
life of Shortridge. -<#*^ 

The summer of 1977 proclaimed another victory for Shor- 
tridge. IPS awarded the victor approximately $14 million for 
the restoration of a school well-loved. 

Seniors returned to Shortridge free of anxiety; they were 



exuberant. The ceaseless spirit of the class of '78 was once 
again evident as the Senior Council made plans for a suc- 
cessful year. As seniors grasped the last remnants of their 
high school careers, the worst blizzard in history struck 
Indiana. A maximum of 22 inches of snow accumulated and 
severe temperatures prevailed. Six days of school was lost 
as a result, but Shortridgers returned as determined as ever. 

In spite of it all, the unity of the class of '78 reached its 
maximum as seniors planned the Senior Class Trip (destina- 
tion Florida) and graduation ceremonies. 

The spirit and unity demonstrated by the class of '78 is 
the greatest asset any class could hope to obtain; it has been 
the key to much of the seniors' success. The class of '78 has 
contributed to Shortridge in various ways. The seniors have 
exhibited true loyalty and reverence for Shortridge in hopes 
that unity, as they know it, may penetrate the lives of future 
Shortridgers. 

The Senior Class wishes to acknowledge and thank the 
Shortridge administrators for their guidance, support and 
patience! In particular, a special thanks to the Senior Class 
Sponsors, Mr, Tom Birk and Ms. Jackie Greenwood. 

Forever Unity!

The Shortridger is involved in both sides 
of the ads-sales game. As the consumer, 
he/she has learned to be aware of what is a 
bargain and what is a rip-off.. As the sales- 
person, the art of persuasion is quite useful. 
Sales of candy, Girl Scout cookies, 
megaphones, pennants, t-shirts and other 
items which appeal to Shortridgers support 
activities. By experiencing the parts of both 
buyer and seller the student gets a better 
view of what is happening and is BUILD- 
ING his/her knowledge of the business 
world.

Our extra-special thanks to all the editors — the new ones who dove into the work they didn't expect when 
they accepted the job, and the experienced editors who returned knowing the responsibility of their posititons. 
We appreciate all the help from Mr. Oldham, Ms. Timberman, Mr. Johnson, Mr. King, Mary Howland, and Lee 
Wendt. Mr. Grismore, you should get the Typist of the Year Award. We couldn't have made it without the 
support of our families and all that we learned from Suzy Dove, Jan Eberle, and Mary Benedict. We also give our 
thanks to Mr. Birk who somehow put up with our sanity/madness.

There have been people who talk about the old Shortridge; how much better it 
was, and how different it is now. Now there seems to be a movement toward 
showing the good of Shortridge and believing that Shortridge has a solid future, 
not only within the Shortridge community but also outside of it. The plans for 
new facilities and the School of Performing Arts support this belief. Shortridge 
will always be a part of us because we have helped with the re-BUILDING of 
Shortridge, its reputation, and its future.
