During Ihe week of June 16-23, ihroe Elmhuisl 
seniors were among 765 girls from tfiroughooi 
Indiono ollending Girls' Slale ol Indiono Stole 
Universiiy, Terre Houie. Tfie girls were Tino 
Fosler. Hollv Wilier, and Leslie Roymer, Senior 
S,e.e Morgan was ihe only EHS siodeni 
oiiending Boys' Siole ihe previous week ol llie 
some campus. 

Wtron asked whor t>e belie.ed lo be lire 
purpose of his week's sioy ol Boys' Slale, Stove 
Morgon exploined, "Boys' Stole, as well os Girls' 
Stole, is set tjp for high school seniors to goin 
experience and understanding in politics ond 
government, and also to build friendships 
omong complete strongers. " 

Soon ofte. orriving on the 15U compos, the 
Girls' State participants were divided into tv/o 
political ponies. Half of the girls became ifie 
Noliorolists ond the other the Federolists. Along 
with two seporote potties, the girls were olso 
divided into cities and counties. After the girls m 
these new districts became acquainted with 
ren/one and after state conventions were held.

During these various elections Tina Foster was 
chosen OS o representative to the House of 
Representatives, Holly Miller was elected o 
deputy county coroner, and Leslie Roymer was 
chosen os both city choirmon and a slate 
senotor. While at Boys' State Steve Morgan was 
elected as a city and county councilmon He olso 
ran for slate senator but wos unsuccessful >n is 

Besides leorning guile o bit oboui government 
In Iheir week's stay, oil lour EHS participonts m 
this summer's Girls' and Boys' Stole progroms 
agreed that they had gomed a better 
understanding of people in generol. Senior 
Leslie Roymer summed this idea up by stating, 
"The sisterhood was unbelievable. II was just 
token for gronted that everybody wos 
everybody's friend." 

Senior Tina Foster olso added to this thought 
by concluding, "Any girl who gels the 
apportunity to attend Girls' Stole should go 
becouse not only does it give you o bettor 
understanding of our government but you toke 
owoy with you friendships that wi" lost forever "

Elmhurst as the lorger part of o 481 
member sophomore closs undertook 
Ihe task of pre-registrotion 

"Things v/ent pretty smoothly all the 
way around," commented Mr. 
Horstmeyer. The complete 

orgonizotion led to Ihe almost 
complete lock of confusion. Aside 
from the schedule change line, few 
oreos bottlenecked the progression of 
Ihe students throughout the line during 
Ihe week. 

By Friday afternoon, about 75% of 

Ihe EHS population hod hit the 14 
checkpoints which mode up the 

Total enrollment for the '74-'75

senior class will be mode up of 430 
and 400, respectively. 

Both Ihe alhlelic and publications 
departments were pleased with the 
response received. Mr. Bienz reported 
that ticket soles were well up over lost 
year's figures, ond Mrs. Hoylman 
approximoted 400 yeorbook-

The American Field Service is 
preparing for this year's activities 

under the direction of its new advisor, 
Mrs. Ofelia Herrero. A meeting wos

Ihe Elmhurst student and adult clubs to

In August, Don Shepherd, EHS' 
exchonge student lo Germany, and 
Cathy White, who spent last year os an 
exchange student to Belgium, were

parents of sophomore Chad Cline, Dr. 
and Mrs, Harold Cline. 

Later in August, during registraiion, 
students found it possible to sign up for 
A.F.S, and to purchase Elmhurst decals 
for a quarter apiece. 

On September 5, approximately one 
hundred people gathered together at 
the Lochness Inn on Elmhurst Drive, for 
a picnic to welcome new members 
into Ihe club. Along with them, ihere 
were students from Homestead, North 
Side, South Side, and Woodlan. 

To begin the year's money making

by Barb Harmon 

One aspect of Elmhurst that 
changes every year is the 
curriculum. This year students 
can expect to find cJifferent 
cncJ somewhat unique classes 
hove been added. 

The consumer ed class may 
prove on interesting 

undertaking for both Mr, 
Arland Reinhard and Mrs, 
Roma Jean Bradburn, who 
will be teaching it; consumer 
ed will be taught sometimes 
under two sections and 
sometimes jointly. Mr, 
Reinhard will be instructing 
the business port of the course 
while Mrs, Bradburn will deal 
with the home economics 
aspect. But when subjects 
come up of importance to 
both areas, the classes will 

A second major addition is 
the photography class to be 
tought by Mr. Dan Goss. Mr. 
Goss, who spent port of the 
summer taking o photogrophy 
course himself, will be 
teaching approximately 25 
students about both the 

technical ond artistic sides of 
picture taking. The doss 
have the odded advantage of 
J new photo lob which has 
been set up on a temporary 

English electives added 

There ore olso some new 
offerings in the elective 
English courses. A new nine 
week course in psychological 
literature, involving studies of 
such books OS / m 0<, You're 
OK wil! be coupled with an 
effective reading class the 
second nine weeks. Another 
cJuo course is American 
Minorities and Career 
Commumcottons. During (he 
first nine weeks, the members 
will delve into contemporary 
works by and about American 
minorities. The last port of the 
course will involve instruction 
in business correspondence. 

The final supplement to the 
English program is a new 
study on children's literature. 
Such clossics as Alice in 
Wonderland will be looked at 
from on adult standpoint to 
perceive the deeper 

meanings in the novels.

The sophomore and junior

The identity of the queen

The varsity cheerleaders, as 
last year, will be in charge of 
getting the crown and the 
flowers to be presented to the 
1974 homecoming queen. 

Elmhurst will be continuing 
the progress made lost year in 
boosting spirit. The plans for 
homecoming octivilies are in 

The theme for this year's 
homecoming is A Fall 
Fantasy. On this basis clubs, 
homerooms, classes and any 
other willing groups will build 
floats to be displayed and 
judged during the 

homecoming parade. 

Judges will be picked from 
the P.T.A. and prominent 
people throughout the city. 
First place will be awarded 
with a trophy that last year 
went to the senior class. 

Entrants in the float parade 
will fill out opplications 
available in the office and 
returned to the office. This

single float. 

On the afternoon of 
September 27, during sixth

watch the activities. Order of 
the entries will be designated

The spirit days will take

gimmick provides that Trojans 
can buy and eat suckers 
during the school day. 

The final spirit day will be

Looks at 74-75 

new building 

This year Elmhurst has taken 
on o new look. The school is 
changing borh internally and 
externally, and one of (he 
most obvious of these changes 
(S the addition of the new 
othletic building. 

The recently completed 

focilities wilt be put to use by 

the boys' football, tennis and 

cross country teams; however, 

( the girls' teams will not 

employ it. It will house the 

coaches' office, additional 

locker rooms and storage 

space — all things several 

't. coaches have expressed a 

is need for, 

ly According to Mr. Jim 

Lambert, the new building is a 

le vast improvement over what 

al ihe teams had in years past. 

le He explained that it offered 

much more room than the old 

iq set-up and the extra storage 

It space, he said, was needed 

■e badly. This, along with the 

,d bigger coaching office and 

)f generally proving itself better, 

II make up most of the 

advantages of the new 

building, he believes. 

Courts ready soon 

The other new addition 
which has changed the 
physical appearance of 
Elmhurst is the tennis courts. 

Located adjacent to the 
othletic building, the courts 
will be used by both the girls' 
ond boys' tennis teoms. They 
won't, however, be open to 
the general public during 
summer, after school or on 
Saturdays os they have been 
reserved for team use only. 

The courts, though not 
finished yet, should probably 
be completed around 
September 14. The asphalt 
was laid August 14, and 30 
days are required before the 
facilities can be put to use 

Both the athletic building 
and the tennis courts 
represent a new phase of 
Elmhurst. Though Elmhurst 
may be one of the oldest 
schools in the city, it is still 

new president 

Senior Derek Paris will assume 
the job of preddeni of Elmhurst's 
student council this year. Derek Is 
also a member of the school's 
track and footboll teams. 

by Nancy Beadie 

This year's student council 
president was born in 
Washington D.C. It might 
seem like he was destined for 
politics. He doesn't think so. 
Derek Paris doesn't consider 
running for student council as 
being particularly political. 

Derek first became involved 
in student council because he 
wanted to be in the position 
"to see what was getting done 

and whot wasn't. He ran for 
president because he hoped 
to improve the condition of a 
freshly started student 
government. But he doesn't 
plan to go into politics ofler 
high school. He's presently 
considering going into a 
social science. 
Public relations help 

Looking back on the 
election, Derek attributed 
some of his votes to the 
speech assembly, when 
"students could see who was 
who and identify ideas". He 
cited one doubt he had oboul 
his winning -• that his 
opponent had been Vice- 
President, thus knowing more 
about oil the projects going 
on. Derek made on effort to 
meet and talk with as many 
students as he could in the 
halls to overcome this. 

Derek's hopes for this yeor's 
student council work include 
getting more student 

involvement. He suggests 
uniting clubs with student 
council by having their 
representatives at different 

council meetings. This way 
they could interject their ideas 
in discussions and make the 
general student body more 
aware of student council 
projects. Derek also proposed 
that Elmhurst sponsor a city- 
wide arcade with television 
and radio advertising to 
encourage student 

Knowing people Is 

Derek said he doesn't feel 
the students hod a good time 
lost year. At Ihe risk of 
"sounding like his parents", 
he placed much of the value 
in high school not in 
academics, but in getting 
olong with and knowing 
people. He continued saying 
that studying ploys o bigger 
port in college. 

As for value in a person, 
Derek considers straight 
forwardness important. He 
portrayed this in his own 
character by saying, "I'd 
argue with anyone if I thought 
1 was right."

shops, cycle shops, deporimeni stces, 
boliques, sports slores, ond new and 
used car dealers, These are oil among 
iKe lop businesses reoping ihe 
benefits of ihe buying power of youth. 
Americans under ihe age of 25 ore 
expected to spend $49 billion in the 
yeor 1975. Youlh of this age often 
hove parl-lime [obs ihot eventually 

produce a reasonable income without 
Ihe expenditures the employes' 
porenis have. They don't have food 
bills, morlgoge poymenis, electricity 
ond woler bills, and everything else 
thot goes into mointoining o 
household ond bringing up o fomily. 
Students ore left with money for 
luxury spending. 

This lunury spending con be 
illustroled by the number of 
automobiles bought - one of the 



biggest American luxury items. 
Tweniy-lwo percent of Americon 

teen.agers between the ages of 15 
and le own iheir own cars. Studies 
have shown that most of these were 
bought used. 

Buying experience 

Newsweek analyzed youlh 
spending and noticed that it was 
centered on the buying of 
experiences. The January 18, 1971, 
issue stated, "This explains nol only 
mo'iiuono, psychedelic posters, ond 
the motorcycle boom, but olso ihe 
college boy wtio wears only blue 
jeons but cherishes his S'.OOO slereo 

After surveying the siluolion, 
Newsweek's stoiement rings true. 
Most poyments leen-ogers moke ore 
on (Kings they can experience. Sound 
equipment, movies, boll gomes, block 
lights, and sports equipment oil foil 
into this category. At least in the cose 
of most mole students, clothing 
occupies little of their money 

Set trends 

Bi.,1 the buying power of the leen- 
oger is not limited to his money and 
bis purchoses. The younger 
generation is considered the trend 
setter. The failure of the midiski't 
several yeo's ago hos been oltributed 
to young women's refusol to weor the 
longer length. And ihe leen-ogers of o 

fomily often influence Ihe buying of 
their porenis. Televisions, food, 
vacations, ond cars ore often bought 
with the younger family members' 
preferences in mind. 

Businesses have not foiled to 
consider the buying power of the 
teen-oger. Advertising hos shown 
their oworeness of yOung weollh ond 
young willingness to spend it. Cola 
commerclols show youlh doing the 

adventurous, the fun, the fanlaslic, 
and then refreshing themselves with 
soft drinks. Colors on products ond 
advertisements ore bright, designs 
modern, music ond dressing styles 
contemporary lo ossociole the 
products with youlh. Those under 30 
hove been recognized as o powerful 
group of consumers.

Responsibility important for school 

Student , responsibility has , 

aspects in the school. It is importont 
that each of us assumes responsible 
attitudes towards our education in Ihe 
school we attend. The taxpayer, of the 
Fort Wayne community invest 
tremendous amounts of money to 
provide its youth with on education. 

For example, much lime, money 
ond effort hos been spent putting our 
school into excellent condition during 
the summer months. It has been 
thoroughly cleaned. Many areas hove 
been pointed and needed repairs 
have been completed. Each of us now 
has a responsibility to help keep it in 
good condition. The school's 

administration will have little 
sympathy towards a student who 
vonaalizes this building. 

Another area of concern in student 
responsibility is towards oltendonce 
ond tordiness. In mony respects, this is 
o school's most serious problem. An 
investment of nearly $| ,000 per year is 
made in each student lo give him a 
good educotion. We certoinly con'l 
reap the benefits of this educotion if 
we ore not here. Elmhurst teachers ond 
administrative staff will do all they con 
to encourage students to be here and 
take odvorloge of Ihe educotionol 
opportunities at Elmhurst.

Europeans visited Ity two £HS Journalists 

by Marty Miller ^ IT 

As many Elmhurst students 
settle down after summer, 
some will find themselves 
reflecting upon its many 
events: weekends at the lake, 
rock concerts, or just plain 
relaxing. But os we look bock 
upon the vocation, not too 
mony of us will be day 
dreaming of places such os 
Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham 
Palace, the Louvre. Chomps 
Elysees, or the Eiffel Tower. 

However, that is exactly the International 

situation for seniors Greg 
Hershberger and Rick Rif kin. 

Greg and Rick, both 
members of the Elmhurst 
pulicotions staff, were part of 
a European journolism tour of 
London and Paris, The two 
deponed from O'Hore Airport 
in Chicago for this two week 
tour August 1, sponsored by 
the National Scholastic Press 
Assoc ioi ion and Se minors 

Along with Rick and Greg 
on this trip were three other 
journalism students -- two 
girls, one from Oklahoma and 
the other from Arkansas, and 
one boy from Iowa. Also 
along were five high school 
leachers from the states, one 
of whom was newly wed and 
honeymooning with her new 
husband while in Europe. 

Foreign publications 

The main opportunity Greg 
and Rich felt they benefited 
from, besides getting a 
chance to visit London and 
Paris, was the experience of 
comparing French and British 
systems of publications with 
our own. 

For Ihe first stop of their 
itinerary, the group visited 
London. At this time Rick and 
Greg hod the opportunity to 
lour the British Broadcasting 
Corporation (BBC). While 
there they were shown 
oround the large network, 
which broadcasts in 40 
different languages 

throughout the world. They 
viewed the translation rooms 
and also the external services, 
where all broadcasts in the 40 
different languages are 

Also while in London, the 
lourists hod the chance lo hold 
an interview with 

representatives from the 
British Conservative and Labor 
parties. When asked which 
party's ideas he agreed with 
more, Greg stated the 

conservatives had more 
realistic ideas. 

Tourists hit Paris too 

From London the tour 
traveled straight to Paris 
where they spent much time 
sightseeing. While in London 
and Paris, the group toured 
the cities from morning to 5 
p.m. daily and had the rest of 
the day to shop or just rest. 
Also in each city everyone 
had a free day to do whotever 
they wanted. When Greg and 
Rick were out on their own 
they discovered that water 
was bottled in France and cost 
about as much as a Coke in 
the U.S. 

Because of the language 
barrier in Parrs, Rick and Greg 
could not always 

communicate with the people 
of the city, but when Greg was 
asked which people he liked 
belter he commented, "I liked 
the people in London better 
than the French because they 
seemed lo be more friendly. 
Often times the people in 
Paris that we had 

appointments with would not 
keep them. It was sometimes 
really disgusting." 

Summer phys. ed. 
proves successful 

Along with the many new 
improvements this fall 

throughout Elmhurst. this post 
summer brought one main 
betterment for the boys' 
athletic program- 

This improvement, o 
summer physical educotior 
class which lasted eight 
weeks, was directed by Mr. 
James Welborn and Mr. Tom 

Speaking of the course, Mr. 

Welborn commented that it 

has helped this year's football 

team immensely. Making it 

such a great success were the 

1 1 8 guys that participated, 

including all but about six 

members of the football team. | 

Through this program Mr. 

Herman, who is new to EHS, 

had the chance to meet many 

of the football team members 

that he will be coaching this 

season. With all of their 

workout sessions the players 

are in much better shape than 

last year. 

Because of its outstanding 
success and help to the 
athletic program, the P.E. staff 
is definitely gomg to continue 
this summer course. 

Trojans defeated 10-7 

The Elmhurst football 
season got under way in 
Jamboree. Tuesday, August 
27. as the Tro|ans met defeat 

at the hands of the Wayne 
Generals 10-7. 

Things looked good for the 
Trojans at the beginning of the 
gome as the Generals took the 
opening kickoff and than 
fumbled on the first play from

JTrojans' only score. With 9:19 
to go in the first quarter junior 
Anthony Green took the 
handoff from quarterback 
iBrian Russell and ran it all the 
way for the score. The extra 
point was good and it looked 
like the Trojans were on their 

From then on, however, the 
tide of the gome changed, The 
Generals took the next kickoff 
all the way with 7:15 to go 

in the first quarter Clayton 
Alter scored and Brad Collins 
added the extra point to tie 
the score at 7-7. Then with 35

Finnish sfudenf comes fo Elmhurst; Swiss girl comes through AFS; 

stays with Kathy Chapman making use of language dicfionary 

by Betsy Barber 

Junior Ansa Kunnari, the foreign ex- 
change student from Finland, has been 
in town now for six weeks and is 
slaying with junior Kathy Chapman. 
She spent o lot of time getting here. 

Ansa traveled first in a jeep from 
Finland to Sweden, then in a train lo 
Brussels, onto an airplane from Phila- 
delphia and finally to Fort Wayne. 

Having only 2 years of English, Ansa 
was rarely without her dictionary and 
ot times she would stop, thumb 
through the pages and hunt up a word. 

"I understand almost everything 
people say, the hard part is speaking. 
The English I learned in Finland is so 
different from the language I must use 
here. You use a lot of slang," said 

Other differences she thought of off- 
hand were the presence of lockers in 
Elmhurst, something she never had, 
and unfortunately for Ansa, Finland 
schools don't know the joy of our little 
pink hall passesi 

Another difference is in American 
automobiles. "They ore so much 
bigger here. We have many small 
cars. And why is it that nobody walks 


Usually in the evenings after school. 
Ansa takes a one to two hour walk. 
Exceptions are when she rides her 
bicycle to school, seven to eight miles 
away, in which cose she cuts her walk 

Cooking, knit- 
ting, and sewing 
are Ansa's favorite 
pastimes, and 

reading is at the 
bottom of the list. 
Her Finland school 
doesn't leave her 
much time be- 
cause they have 
more subjects 

each week (about 
14 to 16 including 
4 languages). .^j,,^ ^^^^ Elmhur.t welcome. 

So far. Ansa sludenti. Anso Kunnari from I 

After putting it off for four days, I 
finally decided to interview our two 
foreign exchange students, Corrine 
Bucher, and Ansa 
Kunnari. I had the 
fear thot I would sit 
trying to look up 
words in my 
Engl ish-Swedish 
Dictionary or end 
up filling the air 
with "uh, um, huh, 
what?" However, 
after the first few 
minutes, I knew I 
was worried for 
nothing. Both Ansa 
and Corrine were

troubles and she from Switzerland standi to the left of Anso. meeting them. 

Corrine Bucher, a senior from 
Switzerland, is staying with junior Tina 
Hinton. She has been in Fort Wayne 
only two and a half weeks, "not really 
long enough to truthfully say how I 
like it." 

says it's been very nice. With her warm 
smile and quick dictionary finger. 
Ansa is ready for on active year at 

Corrine got interested in AFS when 
one of her classmates returned and 
told of her visit to another country. 

School work hasn't been much of a 
hassle for Corrine. Their forty hours per 
week compared to our thirty is 
probably a welcome change. Her 
school days were longer and allowed 
for a person to go home for lunch. "It's 
set up a lot like college," said senior 
Jeff Green, her AFS press agent. 

So for, Corrine has had very few 
problems except for the fact that she 
could only bring 23 kilos 
{approximately 51 lbs.) of clothes, 
"which isn't enough," she said. She 
also had to ride 21 hours on a bus from 
New York to Fort Wayne. 

The first thing Corrine did when she 
got to her new home was to sleep 
which she loves about as much as 
traveling, playing the piano, singing, 
ice skating, snow skiing, and 
swimming, omong her other pastimes. 
"You hove many more sweets 
here," she said when asked how she 
liices the food. Her only complaint 
about school lunches was, "I just can't 
eat withouta knifel"

This year Elmhurst hos a 
new foolboll coach who is os 
enrhusiofic about Elmhurst as 
Elmhursl is about him. The 
vacancy of head football 
coach left last year by Mr. 
Hoover will be filled this year 
by Mr. Tom Herman. 

Coach Herman himself 
played four years of high 
school ball and four yeors of 
college football at Kent Stale. 
He was assistant coach at Kent 
Stote, Central High School, 
and Northrop High School and 

Netmen begin practice 

The Elmhurst tennis team 
storied practicing on August 
19. with 20 guys out 
competing for the top ten 
spots in the starting line-up, 

CoQch Robert Horn 
commented. "Lost year I 
didn't know t was going to be 
the tennis coach so I haven't 
seen the other teams ploy, Bui 
some schools don't even know 
if they will hove o team al all, 
ond if they do they'll probably 
have about three beginners, 
and we can beat any 
beginners. So I definitely feel 

we will hove a winning team 
this year." 

There ore 5 juniors and 
seniors returning this year 
including one letterman, Greg 
Hershberger. The twenty 
aspirants include seven 
sophomores, nine juniors, and 
four seniors. 

The first tennis match of the 
seoson was held yesterdoy 
against Huntington, ond 
Snider wilt be the Trojans' 
opponents today. Tomorrow's 
home meet will be against 

wos also head coach at 
Hamilton High School. 

Yet with all the experience 
Coach Herman has. his job of 
rebuilding a football team 
may prove a big one, but he is 
confident he can succeed 
"Elmhurst is only one of five 
schools that hove new head 
coaches this year," 

commented Mr. Herman, 
"and we hod the summer P.E 
program in which oil but half 
a dozen members of our teom 
participated, so we are better 
off thon some." 

"This year we hove 60 guys 
out there who wont to play 
football," says Coach 
Herman. "We have 1 ? 
lettermen returnmg and 33 
sophomores who ore learning 
fast." Bui Ihe sophomores are 
not the only ones learning, 
according to the coach. The 
whole team must Jeorn the 
fundamentals of the game. "If 
we con overcome the 
inexperience and 

fundamentals, we'll have a 
wmning season." 

Paul Stevens makes (he final (urn 
and heads for finish In one of his 
many races. 

Between the returning 
lettermen and new blood in 
the form of sophomores, the 
team looks like o strong con- 
tender in the city roce, 

Five returning juniors and 
seniors will give the t8-mon 
team the needed experience. 
Among these five, four are 
lettermen - Paul Stevens, Rick 
Knuth, Denny Kirkland, and 

Lorry Rober, 

The new blood will be 
supplied mainly by three 
sophomores - Tim Lee. Chad 
Clme, and Jim Freygong, All 
three placed in the top ten in 
the city as freshmen. 

All in all the '74 cross 
country team looks like o 
stronger team than last year's 
and a contender in any meet 
this year or in the future.

. . ScollSonden, 

ford's polUij questioned; Nixon's pardon sparks anger 

by Noncy Beadle 

The horse has been let out 
of the born and oil the 
animals will follow. There's 
no way lo get them bock 
becouse they're settled on 
holy land. 

Yes, President Ford has 
done it; he's blessed Nixon 
and is giving serious 
consideration lo letling 
Nixon's people go. 

With oil Ford's talk about 
honesty and the open policy, 







exactly one month after 
taking office, he's grossly 
bridged this trust. With his 
pardon of former-President 
Richard Nixon, Ford has 
insured that the American 
people will never know the 

The tapes will be burned in 
five to ten years, their 
contents never lo be revealed. 
Even if Ford does not pardon 
Nixon's conspirators. the 
chances that iheir trials will 
lake place are slim. The 
defendants will cloim that 
valuable evidence from the 
tapes is needed; precisely, 
because they know the tapes 
will never be obtained. 

Money and power 

Nixon and his men hove not 
"suffered enough", He made 
no sacrifice by resigning his 
office. On the controry, he hod 
much to goin by stepping 
down. He has failed lo admit 
that if he hadn't left of his own 
free will, he would hove 
been Impeached and 
convicted. Then, he would 
have had no bond 
accompanying his departure, 
no red carpet leading to a 
wailing army helicopter, no 
sweet audience waving 

goodbyes, no office affect merely a hondful of policy, his trust lo the country 

loinlenance staff, and no people. They directly affected when he has set up an easy 

pension. Money and powe 
was the root of his evil. 

Richard Nixon should be 
prosecuted. His violations of 
justice, privocy, trust, law, and 
who knows what else did not

Vandalism . tardies plague school 

Vondalism and tardiness are two 
problems that every high school 'faces. 
Different schools have their own rules and 
policies regarding the student who destroys 
and the excessive late-comer. 

At Elmhurst, vandalism is not regarded as 
a major problem as it is in other schools in 
the city. But the' student vandal should be 
careful, for destroying school properly con 
lead to 1) suspension in cases a^ich as 
graffiti and 2) expulsion for more serious 
offenses such as fires, etc. The reasons for 
the stiff vandalism lows are that it costs a lot 
of money to correct any damage done ond it 
also takes the time of the maintenance 
people who could be doing something more 

Policies updated 

The vandalism policies are not new to 
Elmhurst, but the lardy policies hove been 
updated since lost year. The teacher handles 
the student who is tardy once or twice, but 
after three or four tardies, the student is sent 
directly to o dean. (Last year the student was 
sent to a counselor and then lo the dean.) If 

the problem cannot be corrected by tolking 
it out with the student, he is sent throuah 
more channels and finally suspended. This 
should end the excessive tardiness, but the 
student can be expelled if he continues to 
interrupt class by walking in after the bell 

Because vandalism is nolo problem that 
is dealt with daily, the rule should 
discourage anyone who is thinking of 
destroying school property. But tardiness is 
going to be harder to control. 

First of oil, Ihose students who are tardy 
excessively would probably welcome an 
expulsion if it weren't for their parents. 
This is where the key to the problem lies.- 
In talking with the student and his parents o 
decision as to whether the student really 
wonts to be or should be enrolled in high 
school can be made. 

High school is not the place for everyone. 
Vocational or trade school may provide a 
more welcome atmosphere for those 
students concerned with getting the training 
needed for a technical career.

Marching band performs al

The Elmhursi Morching Band was 
tecenlly featured September 25 at 
freimann Park's first anniversary. 

Performing from noon till one, tfie 
band was heard by many people 
including some elementary students. 
School songs ond numbers such as 
"Eleanor Rigby" and "From This 
^Aoment On" were played, 

Trolans participate 
Porlicipating m the 1974 Fort Wayne 
City Marching Festival, the Marching 
Troions performed o ten minute show 
before a panel of three judges last 

The festival was held Qt Norlhrop's 
Supller Stadium, and drew o crowd of 
2,500 spectotors- Judging was by 
comment only and each judge gave 
constructive criticisms. 

"The bond performed the best they 
had oil year," said Mr. Dove Sapp, 
student teacher. Other comments from 
band members were "1 think we did 
really good" and "We finally did a 
decent job." 

Mr. Brugh concluded by soying, 
"The festival was a complete success 
and plons ore being made for another 
festival next year."

The quarterback tokes off at a trot, 
then opens up to run it. The coach sits 
on the sidelines watching with on 
alert eye to see that oil goes smoothly 
and just in case the team needs some 
expert odvice, he'll be ready to 
contact a specialist. 

This is no football game. This is the 
Explorers. The President, or the 
"quarterback" and the Post advisor, 
the "coach", work together with the 
rest of the Explorer group or "team" 
to explore the different aspects of 
their particular field- 
Why should a student be on 
Explorer? "The exploring program 
gives high school students the 
opportunity to determine whether or 
not this is the career in which Ihey are 
interested ond if it is the coreer they 
wish to pursue." This is the answer 
given by Mr. Steve Croxton of 
E xplorers headquarters. 

Last fall 486 people were involved 
in 34 different posts in Allen county. 
There ore now 753 in 41 posts. The 
first meeting for each of these posts 
will be on orientation. A general look 
will be given to the particular field. 

Meetings lost no more than one or 
two hours, and most posts will meet 
every two weeks. The different posts 
will meet ot different times during the 
week. A paper, with these doys and 
the times at which meetings begin, 
will be pasted on the bulletin board in 

the moin office. Each prospective 
member has the opportunity to 
purchase a subscription 10 the 
E xplorers Magazine. 

Exploring is designed to provide 
new people, new experiences, new 
opportunities. For more information,

guidance office or call 432-3054.

Student reaction: 

A middle of the road decision 

It was a courageous move-breaking 
the idea to a potentially hostile and 
obviously unsympathetic group, the 
Veterans of Foreign Wars. 
Unfortunately, something happened 
along the way that angered the right, 
left, and middle. 

When President Ford proposed a 
conditional amnesty several weeks 
ago, it seemed a fair enough 
compromise; those who favored 
blanket amnesty were at least getting 
part of what they wanted and those on 
the right, well, those on the right were 
at least willing to give the President a 

However, since the President's 
announcement that ex-President 
Nixon has been granted a complete 
pardon, many people, even those who 
were more conservative on the issue, 
have begun to wonder whether on 
unconditional amnesty for draft 
resistors and deserters is really too 
much to ask. 

Blonket heals wounds 

The concept of such amnesty is not 
new. There are precedents for both 
conditional and unconditional 
policies. After WWII, men were 
pardoned on an individual basis, 
according to coses. Men in prison were 
Qiven unconditional pardons while 

otiiers were required to give time to 
some civil service. It the President 
were to grant o conditional omneslyi if 
would probably follow along these 

Andrew Johnson, over one hundred 
years ago, pardoned the entire South 
after the Civil Wor. He did this not at 
once, but through a series of 
proclamations which culminated with 
a final pardon on Christmas. 1867, If 
the chief executive were to consider a 
blanket policy, this would also serve as 
o good premise. It would be almost 
impossible to announce such a plan 
immediately; he is politically 
vulnerable ond there is still a block of 
opposition he must face. However, 
total amnesty, if not immediately, then 
eventually, would serve the country 

This blanket proposal would 
hopefully help the psyche and heal 
some of the wounds of America. We, 
as a notion, have been bitter and 
cynical too long. The troumas of 
Vietngm, Watergate,' the economic 
and energy crisis have hurt our spirit. 
This move would be a step toward 
rebuilding our morole and unity, and 
bring ot least a fraction of the peace 
which we seek, America magozme 
soys, "The dead in Vietnam bear no 
grudges. Why should we?" 

Tod Huntley, sophomore 

"I'm for amnesty but I don't believe 
these people should come bock with a 
full and complete pardon. I think they 
should work their way bock through 
the Peace Corps or Vista, or some 
similar organization. 

"They hove broken existing laws - 
whether we think the laws are right or 
wrong. Since they did break what was 
low then and still is now, I think they 
should work their way back. However, 
I do think each case should be tried on 
a separate basis." 

them whey they gave nothing to their 
country. If they choose to live in 
another country, let them, but don't let 
them come back into this country 
when they chose to desert it. 

Melissa Hunter, junior 

"I'm against amnesty for two 
reasons. The first reason is becouse it's 
not fair to the men who died or were 
in prisoner of war camps. It's also not 
foir to the families who lost friends, 
husbands end brothers. 

Second, they're where they are 
because they chose to be. They 
shouldn't expect to come back and 
enjoy what their country can give 

Barb Harmon, junior 

"The Vietnam War wos one of the 
most unjustified wars in our history. By 
gronting anything but unconditional 
amnesty, Americo would be denying- 
or more to the point, hiding from-lhat 

"In time people will come lo 
rationalize what happened in 
southeast Asia, but a strong action, 
such as granting total amnesty, would 
put the war in its proper historical 
perspective: a mistake we should 
learn from, 

"The men who went to Canada sow 
error in the fighting which creoted a 
great personal conflict for them. It's 
ridiculous to say that these men do 
not love their country. 

"Considering that freedom of belief 
is one of the bases of our democracy, 
it's sod to think that objectors hove 
been persecuted and even lailed for 
following their conscience."

r/ Death Wish 
Bronson stars 

by Liz Kerns 

What would you do if your mother 

. was beaten to death and your sister 

)) roped by three hoods? The movie 

Death Wish, starring action superstar 

Charles Bronson, attempts to answer 

this question. 

Charles Bronson as Paul Kersey, 
husband and father, becomes New 
York's fictionol "vigilante." Out to 
clear the city of crime, he walks the 
streets, the porks, and rides the 
subways alone ol night looking fo be 

This brings out two of the film's 
many shortcomings. It seems "the 
vigilante" is on equal opportunity 
killer, because he kills as many black 
muggers as he does while. Another 
coincidence is the fact that all the 
muggers carry knives, except the very 
lost one, who wounds "the vigilante" 
and discloses his identity. 

The end is handled with taste and 
wit as "the vigilante" is ordered to 
leave New York because the District 
Attorney refuses to prosecute him and 
moke him a martyr, as Ihe crime rate 
has dropped by nearly one-half since 
"the vigilante" began his nightly 

Deoth Wish seems to be asking: 
"Okay, which one of you big 
melropolises is going to produce Ihs 
non-fictional "vigilante?"

Girls volleyball 



By JimTheye 

An outstanding showing of 61 girls 
were present ot the girls volleyboll 
orgonizotionol meeting Tuesdoy, 
September 10, Tryout practices began 
the following Thursdoy and ore lo 
continue for a two week period before 
ony eliminations will be mode. 

During these proclice sessions the 
girls work the first half hour on worm 
up exercises and condilioning. They 
then pradice skill drills. The girls' 
cooch, Mrs. Catherine Russell, 
commented thot the girls reolly don't 
enjoy Ihe drills, but she feels that if the 
skills involved in volleyboll aren't 
developed, then the girls won't know 

how to use them properly when they 
ore required during a gome. 

The first volleyball gome for the 
team will be October 10, The girls will 
hove five other games during the 
month of October, 

When asked how she thought the 
girls looked for this year's season, Mrs. 
Russell commented, "Fantosticl We 
hove only lost one girl ond a lot of Ihe 
talent from lost year is back again, I 
have olso seen excellent talent by the 
girls from the junior highs if these 
girls stoy OS good as they ore now, the

explained, "First of all, each player

The "no od" system of scoring is 
onother new ruling. Here, when Ihe 
score of 40-40 or deuce is reached, the 
winner of the next point is the winner 
of the gome. Under Ihe old system, 
two points were needed to win, "We 
olso ploy 2 out of 3 sets. This contrasts 
With the pro-set to 8 played in previous 
years," he odded, 

Cooch Horn continued in stating 
thot, in sectionol ploy, once o team is

This means Ihot even if o single or 
doubles teom wins ond the loom is

the idea of tennis being a team sport,

Reserves fall to 
Luers in 20-0 show 

Elmhurst reserves invaided Bishop 
Luers stadium Monday, September 9, 
where the Trojans were plagued with 
fumbles and interceptions in a 
disappointing 20-0 loss. 

Bishop Luers threw a very tough and 

rugged defense against Ihe relatively 
inexperienced offense. It was the red 
and gray's small yardage production 
which eventually led to their second 
consecutive defeat. 

Elmhurst is 0-2 in season ploy. The 
reserves' next match is a home affair 
against Northrop at 4 p.m. tomorrow 
on the Elmhurst field. Coach Jim 
Lambert comments that a good turnout 
of Trojan rooters will be a help in 
providing team spirit. 

Other games on ihe sophomore 
schedule include: Sept. 26 at Bishop 

Dwenger; and Oct, 3 at Snider. 

Reterues try desperately but fall to Luers. 

The name of the game Is strotegy. 


Mike's Side 

by Mike Landrtgan 

One of the major bonds between 
students and their school is their 
athletic teams. In fact, if it were not for 
athletics, a school would serve no 
purpose for some students. 

Winning teams really boost school 
spirit. Northrop, as an example, has 
the necessary attitude. They think as 
winners; all of their male sports, with 
the exception of tennis, were winners. 

Elmhurst has o chance for this 
attitude. The baseball team got off on 
the right foot by beating Northrop in 
the regionals, then finishing the 
season as runners-up in the semi-stale. 
Now. it is up to the coaches, athletes 
and student body to continue with the 
Positive AAentol Attitude our new head 
football coach, Tom Herman, talks 

Lei's start off with cross country. 
Already this teom has hod a better 
season. With the return of Paul 
Stevens, who's one of the finest 
runners in the slote, and the additions 
of severol outstanding sophomores. 
this could be our most improved sport. 
Next, our football team, now under 
the direction of on outstanding cooch, 
Tom Herman. Already he has molded 
our football players into a unit that 
believes they can compete with 
anyone. This year's team can't do 

anything but improve on last year's 
record. If the students give jhem some 
support they should win at least half of 
their games. 

Now, let's look at the third of our 
fall sports, tennis. Last year's 
graduotion moy have hurt this team 
more than any other. Greg 
Hershberger is our only returning 
letterman. The team locks experience; 
they are looking toward next year. 

That leaves us with the only team 
which had a winning attitude during 
the season and kept that altitude 
during the stale tournament: 
baseball. The baseball teom lost five 
starters but there are eight returning 
lettermen in addition to several other 
excellent prospects. The members of 
the teann believe they ore the best in 
the city and hope to improve on lost 
year's record. 

That's a summary of some of the 
sports that hove been around at least a 
year. To win a team needs to hove 
talent, the correct attitude and the 
support of the students. The talent is 
there, the attitude is up to the athletes 
and the cooches, but in the post, the 
support was lacking. All of our coaches 
agree that o lorge group yelling for 
you can really help your incentive, so 
the rest is up lo you. 

Reason for tradifion sought 

by the flril period |ournal 
lim clou 

With foil dosses under woy, 
(he first period jOurnolism 
closs began to wonder what 
ihe purpose of homecoming 
is. They found out and then sel 
out to determine who else in 
the school knew the onswer. 

So, with pencils ond poll 
sheets in hand, the fifteen 
budding iournolists posed the 
question, "Why do we hove 
homecoming?" They got 
answers from 1 17 Trojans. 
Thirfy six were sophomores, 

53 were juniors, 22 were 
seniors and six were leochers. 
In all. only 23 percent were 
aware of the true meaning of 

Most responses fell under 
three categories: "I don't 
know," "ll's a tradition," and 
"To have some fun." The 
highest rate of incorrect 
onswers came from the 
sophomores and on up 
according to seniority through 
'he teachers. Eighty three per 
cent of the sophomores were 
wrong, 75 per cent of the 

the seniors were incorrect, 
and the teochers hod o 23 
percent rate of miscalculation. 
(Only six were polled). 

With all the percentages 
totaled, a figure of 23 per cent 
was reoched in relation lo the 
number of Elmhurst's people 
that were correctly informed. 
They were the ones that come 
up wrih the answer, 
"Homecoming was designed 
so thai alumni can come bock 
and show their school spirit at 
a foolboll gome."

Paul Stevens grosps the finish line after breaking the school record against Wayne. 

Stevens beats former record; 
team possesses skills 

The cross country team started the 
year off very well by beating 
Homestead, but lost o close one to a 
tough Harding team. On Sept, 10, the 
Elmhurst harriers tied Goshen, and 
beot their close rivals, Wayne. In their 
third meet, a dual meet, the harriers 
trounced Tipton with a near perfect 
score of 17 to their opponents' 40, 

In Ihe first two meets senior Paul 
Stevens broke the school record, which 
he originally sel last year, Paul hos the 
best time in ihe cily and second best in 
the area. Tim Hughes of Huntington 
runs a 12.27, just six seconds better 
than Paul, 

This year the team is Ihe biggest 

team in four years, with four seniors, 
seven juniors, and five sophomores, o 
total of sixteen men. So far they have 
proved a good leam ond they look like 
a possible city contender. All home

This once familiar onnouncemenl 
isn't shown much on TV anymore. 
The reoson; the curfew low isn't 
enforced as it once wos This is one 
of the good things the police 
deportment has done, but the 
curfew ordinance was not reloxed 
out of the goodness of the polices' 
heorts; there just isn't enough 
personnel to enforce it as it was 
meant to be enforced. 

The city has no ordinance 
restricting minors from the age of 
sixteen to eighleeri from being out

The city law covers minors under 
Ihe age' of 16, but the slate covers 

the curfewing of older teens under

This in essence slates, "The words 
'Delinquent Child' shall include any

This means that if a person under 
18 is out past 11:00 and not 
returning from on educational 
gathering, he is defined as a

The penalty for violating curfew 
is a fine of nol more than 25 dollars. 

but every policeman handles the 
curfew as he sees fit. Some may 
fake violoters in, others may just

This means that there could be as

shouldn't be allowed to happen for 
the law should be interpreted, in 
general terms, alike by all

Why is there this statute? Partly 

for the teen-agers' benefit, ana 
portly for the publics' protection, for 
at the stroke of 1 1 :00 all teen-agers

This obviously isn't true, and the 
curfew low does serve some 
purpose. Most crimes are more apt 
to be committed later in the night.

yeors ago when Fort Wayne's youth 
was involved in several riotous

lock of man power, the police 
department has relaxed on curfew 
violators. For how long, no one con

causing trouble, the low will remain 

Teen-agers wont fo be treated as 
responsible citizens of the 
community, and as long as rhey 
remain out of trouble, they con, and 
should, be treated this way. Until,

sleeping bags 
prove fb be 




What should I consider 
when buying a sleeping 

Since comping, 

bockpacking and partying are 
three of Ihe most popular 
sports in America, this is o 
pretty good question. And 
because you can expect to 
spend from eight to 250 
dollars, you could probably 
consider it o major purchose, 
and any major purchase is 
worth looking into. 

The question you hove to 
ask yourself first is what 
you're going to use your 
sleeping bag for. 

Suppose you were going 
comping. If you were 
planning some serious long- 
term trips you would probably 
wont a down filled bag. These 
are the best kind made, but 
they are also the most 

One warning: don't pay any 
attention to labels or 
salesmen who tell you that a 
certain bag will keep you 
warm down to a certain 
number of degrees. The 
warmth factor of your body is 
what's important here. Also, 
the chill factor is often much 
lower than a thermometer 
may read; it may say twenty 
degrees, but it might feel like 

Generally, the same 
temperature rules hold for 
bock-pocking; however, an 
important thing that needs to 
be considered here is the 
shape of the bog. Since every 
ounce of weight hos to be 
counted for. any bog that's 
going to cut down on excess 
weight and space is going to 
work best. Therefore, you 
should probably think about a 
streamlined, or mummy bag. 
Finally, the lost category: 
partying. If you like to gel 
away for the weekend with 
some of your friends, do some 
not-so-serious camping, or 
just want something to throw 
in the back of your von, you 
can probably buy yourself on 
eight dollar fiber filled bog 
and be happy. Of course, if 
you wont the best of the fiber 
filled you can get a dacron 
bag which sells for around 35 
dollors. Otherwise, don't 
worry too much unless it starts 
to get terribly cold. If you're 
this kind of camper you 
probably won't get much 
sleep anyway. 

The Advance staff 
invites students to request 
products for articles or ask 
questions about products 
relevant to them. Requests 
and/or questions should be

Wonder*! new album shows optimism 

by Rick Rrf krn 

If osked to describe the music of 
Sfevie Wonder's new album in one 
word, the word would hove to be 

Fulfritrngness' Frrit Finale >s 

Stevie Wonder's lotest optimistic 

offering, II is the culminotion of post 

albums with a somewhat new theme, 

"Music of the Mind" was on extension 

of Slevie's own personality, 

"Innervisrons" took a long look ol 

humanity and society, and finally show his piano and singing abilities. 

"Fulfillingness' First Finale" offers 

Life, deof h and God 

The hope theme comes out clearly 
in many songs, but in at least two 
there ore questions obout life, death, 
and God. There ore only two songs in 
which Stevie seems to have his old 
familiar sound of "Superstition" or 
"Living in the City." They ore "Boogie 
on Reggae Woman" and his current 
single, "You Hoven't Done Nothin"', 
on which the Jackson 5 also sing. The 
rest of the album is devoted to more 
mellow pieces which allow Stevie to 

faith and hope. 

The music on this album is very 
similar to other Stevie Wonder 
olbums (they almost all have the 
same sound), but it is o little less 
funky and a bit slower. Stevie seems 
to be able (o get all of his songs to be 
either soft and melodic or fast and 
funky. His voice is excellent and his 
musical talent is tremendous ... it's 
just that each new olbum seems to be 
a continuation of previous work. 
"Fulfillingness" is not on exception to 
this, but the similarity is insignificont. 
The album offers a message which 
makes it different from any other 
album. It is Stevie Wonder's "First 

Stevie Wonder is well established. 
This album signifies the end of on eta 

but also the beginning of one. 
Hopefully Stevie will broaden his 
style a little to get himself out of that 
two-sound song rut. If he does not, 
then the next album will sound like 
this one, and "I nnervisions" and 
"Music of My Mind" and "Tolking 

"Fulfillingness' First Finale" is 
really a good album. Stevie Wonder 
has reached his first plateau. It is a 
great First Fmole, but no doubt the 
best is yet to come.

lUPU hosts debate 

Recently the Indiana - Purdue 
University extension here in Fort 
Wayne sponsored a debate workshop 
for debate teams in Northern Indiana. 

The workshop begon with a 
demonstrative panel discussion. The 
panel, consisting of four community 
members, discussed this year's debate 
topic, whether federal campaigns 
should be financed by the public. 

The panel members represented 
such organizations as Common Cause 
and The League of Women Voters. 
Each of the representatives tried to 
give not necessarily their own opinion 
but that view held by their respective 
organization. Afterward, the students 
had the opportunity to ask questions. 

Next on the agenda was a 
discussion by a panel consisting of 3 
debate coaches. Each coach gave a 
lecture on one of the basic three 
elements in debate: research, arguing 
the affirmative, and arguing the 

After an hour long break for lunch, 
'he students returned for a 
demonstration debate between two 
different varsity teams. After the 
debate, a panel of three judges gave 
critiques on the debate. 

"I think it was a worthwhile 
experience for someone who has 
never deboted before." stoted one 
Elmhurst attendant.

Three Elmhurst seniors were recently 
recognized as Commended Scholars 
by the National Merit Scholarship 

Principal Richard Horstmeyer 
announced that Cathy Cory, John 
Seabold and Kevin Young received 
letters of commendation. 

Explaining the commendation, 
guidance counselor Mr. Douglass 
Spencer said that "the commendation 
simply recognizes the fact that these 
students did outstandingly well but not 
sufficient to qualify for the semi- 

"However," he added, "it should 
not be mistaken thot these students 
necessarily had inferior scores to 

previous Elmhurst scholars. Their 
scores might have qualified lost year 
or could next year, Ifs oil a matter of 
national competition smce Ihe scores 
are always comparative." 

The commendation will enhance the 
student probabilities of college 
acceptance and shows that they will be 
more likely to be sought after by 
colleges. The scores will be sent to the 
schools of their choices. 

Cathy, John and Kevin were three of 
38 thousand recognized scholars. The 
38 thousand were port of over I 
million high school students who took 
their PSAT tests last October. That 
seems to be quite on achievement for 
the three as well as something for 
Elmhurst to be proud of. 

"I'm surprised ol how for olong we ore, and 
we still hove o month of reheorsols lefll" sloted 
Nancy Beodie. "I om olso hoppy that the set was

Coach Horn is inexperience.

The last two years our cross country teoms hove 

"bombed out" ... the teoms just couldn't gel it 

together. T here were one or two excellent runners, 

but as team they couldn't and didn't beot 

Cross country is a sport that can change from 
year to yeor and our team has mode o miraculous 
change. Af present the Trojan runners ore serious 
contenders for the city championship. 

At our first pep session, the baseball, footboll 
and tennis teom members were oil recognized but 
it seemed as though the cross country team was 
left out. Moybe it was just an oversight, but they do 

deserve something for the pain, hard work. Besides Poul Stevens, the only seniors ore John Cline 
diligence, and sweat it takes to be successful. and Randy Smith, so the team looks strong next yeor 

The team is led by senior Paul Stevens. Paul has 
run 2'/j miles in 12:19.8, which is the second fastest 
time in the slate. He's the kind of runner you better 
remember to see ot the starting line, because once 
the race starts all you'll see again is his heels. 

Sophomore Tim Lee has stepped into the number 
two slot. Tim had on outstanding year in ninth grade 
running both cross country and track. His best time of 
12:55 is on outstanding time for a sophomore. 

The rest of the team consists of juniors Rick 
Knulh, Lorry Raber, Denny Kirklond, Tom 
Kiermaier, John Nowlin, Bill Brown, and Bob Levy.

Cross country is demanding, not only on Ihe legs, 
lungs, and mind of the runner, but olso requires 
determination, desire, and dedicotion. The teom 
started practice Aug, 12 at Chain-O-Lokes Stole 
Pork. T hey ron four hours a day for o weekl 

The runners hove been through some tough 
practices so they could represent our school. There 
ore people who haven't seen a meet or been 
involved in a meet don't know what the runners go 
through and can't appreciate the hard work and 
agony of cross country. The team needs these 
people's Support and all our support, so go and 
cheer them on al their meets.

apathy or other over-used, classic 
arguments, but what resulted was a

Cris, along with many other

the audience response is so low at

'California Split' analyzes gamblers 

by Dave Sllletto 

Gambling - have you ever 
wondered whot it would be like to 
win, and win big? Maybe, at 4 a.m., as 
you sal half-dozed, throwing cords off 
the euchre table? If you have, then go 
see Elliot Gould and George Segal in 
"California Split." 

Elliot Gould is impressive as the high 
spirited, non-conformist, professional 
gambler, Segal plays the more-or-less 
straight man, os the two get 
themselves in and out of tight 
situations. The two actors compliment 
each other very well. Their friendship 
off-stage shows up as the scenes 
between them come to life. The film 
hos depth because of the creditable 

performonces of the supporting cast. 

The plot is o low-keyed study of the 
relationship of two gamblers os they 
deal with Lady Luck. The pair meet at a 
poker table and have quite a few 
drinks afterwords. This begins their 
friendship. They suddenly begin a 
winning streak which eventually nets 
them over eighty thousand dollars. 

The movie is mainly to make you 
lough, but there is a little more meal to 
chew than in recent successes such as 
"Blazing Saddles." Much of the movie 
is shot on locotion at racetracks and 
casinos featuring large crowds. 

If you want a lough, and to see 
some good choracterizotions, this 
movie is for you! Get out and enjoy it!

CROSSWINDS - Billy Cobham 

Since the break-up of ihe 
Mahovishnu Orchestra in 1973, Billy 
Cobham has emerged os one of the 
finest, fastest drummers ever. 
Everybody knew he wos good, but no 
one enpected the music that come out 
on "Spectrum," his firsi olbum. It wos 
o tremendous success and it gave Billy 
Cobhom the sureness he needed lo go 
ahead with solo work. 

Even on first listening "Crosswinds" 
is unbelievable. It is on album that 
constantly moves. II changes from 
slow, eosy melodies to pure funk to 
trumpet and trombone solos, orid 
finally lo ihe incredible drumming of 
Billy Cobham. 

The musicianship throughout the 
album is extraordinary. One of the 
best tracks on the record is "Flosh 
Flood." It contains fiery solos by 
guitarist John Abercrombie ond 
trumpet player Randy Brecker. 
"Sovonnoh the Serene" is o litlle 
mellower ond features George Duke 
on keyboards. Billy Cobham, 
however, is the reol stot of ihe album. 

. The drums ore fast and alwoys 
changing and the liming is perfect. 

"Crosswinds" has no flows. It is o 
great album and anyone Inio any kind 
of music will enjoy it, II is joiz at its 

BEFORE ■ Return lo Forever

The long-awaited follow up to 
"Hymn of the Seventh GoloKy" hos 
arrived. Chick Corea hos long been 
famous OS on e»ceptionol pianist. 
With ihe forming of Return to Forever 
ond the success of "71h Galaxy" he 
hos become one of ihe most 
prominent figures on ihe jozz-rock 
scene. The only personnel change in 
Return to Forever is Al DiMeolo 
replacing former guitarist Bill 

"Wfiere hove I Known You Before" 
is similar lo "Hymn of the Seventh 
Goloxy" in mony woys but it Is also 
more diversified and improved. 
Return to forever has broadened their 
style o little and the music is now less 
repetitious ond more musical, ' 

Corea and Dimeolo provide most of 
Ihe leads but the bond is corried b^ 
bossisi Stanley Clorke and drummer 
Lenny White, Clarke solos also, but 
olong wilh While they Creole the • 
punch thai keeps the album from 
turning into repeating solos that go on 
too long, 
' "Where Hove I Known You Before" 

is on impressive album. It shows great 
group loleni and great individual 
talent. It seems that Chick Corea has 
finolly formed o bond thot will stoy on 
top for o long lime. Hopefully Return 
to Forever will continue this way and 
produce new and increosingly better 
olbums in Ihe future. 


After listening to olbums ihot 
feature o drummer or o piano player, 
you may wont lo heor a good jazz 
album featuring everybody. 
"Mysterious Traveller," Weolher

exceptionally tolented and creolive 
musicions. Almost all ore groduotes 
of the Miles Davis bond and they ore

The album hos many changes ond 
covers o brood range of sound and 
style. Much ot it follows Lotin and 
African rhythm based on the endless 
percussion of Dom Um Romoo. Many 
of the songs ore highlighted by 
Wayne Shorler's sok solos or Josef 
Zowinul's poino. 

"Mysterious Traveller" is o

Letter to 
the editor 

To the editor: 

There seems to have been a 
receni uproar among students 
about ihe issue of abortion. It 
is becoming practically 
impossible to voice an opinion 
on the subject v^ithout being 
instantly condemned as o 
murderer, ultra-conservative, 
or staunch moralist. 

After all the arguments, the 
question seems to boil down 
to: when does life begin? The 
pro-lifers seem to agree on 
the moment of conception as 
the lime when life begins. The 
pro-obortionists seem to hove 
varying opiniorts, among 
them, at three months, of 
birth, or when the brain and 
heart first function. 

It seems that the pro-lifers 
try to make a scientific 
argument out of a basically 
philosophical question. It also 
seems rather presumptuous 
that they should moke up the 
rest of society's mind. 
Certainly, no one woman has 
to have on abortion, but by 
the- some right, no woman 
should be denied one. The 
question should remain up to 
the individual.

The ideo ot "Morning Madness" wos

Tennis team 


by Kevin Lee 

The Trojan tennis team was 
defeated 4-1 by Northrop 
Saturday, Oct. 5, in the annual 
tennis sectional tournament at 
Harding High School. 

The sectional was changed 
this year with more emphasis 
put on team ploy. The team as 
whole had to win or 
everyone on ihe team was out 
of the sectionals. This is what 
happened to the Elmhurst 
tennis team: senior Greg 
Hershberger, the number one 
player on Ihe team, beat his 
opponent, but even though he 
won, he could not go on in 
sectionals becouse the team 

Individual results of the 
tennis sectional were Greg 
Hershberger 6-4, 6-4 over Tim 
Burke; Jim Theye was 
defeated by Brad Oren 6-4, 6- 
1- Stan Sorgen was defeated 
■by Mike Beer 6-0, 6-1; Ted 
Ornas and Tod Huntley were 
defeated by Tom Sleckbeck 
and Greg Volliman 6-3, 6-1; 
George Huber and Lynn 
Brown were defeated by Tim 
Speshyock and Dale Trainer 6- 
0, 6-4. 

Coach Horn emphasized 
that a lack of experience was 
the main reason for the 4-1 
setback by Northrop. Of the 
seven players only Greg 
Hershberger, Jim Theye and 
George Huber had any 
playing experience before the 
season started and 

Hershberger was the only 
returning letterman. 

Coach Horn, who will be 
returning as tennis coach next 
year, said that he enjoyed 
coaching tennis. He felt that 
his own inexperience as a 
coach hurt the team along 
with having no tennis courts. 
Looking forward to next 
year, Coach Horn stated, 
"With eight people hoving 
experience back and a 
change of strategy concen- 
trating on doubles, we are 
looking forward to next 
season." After a 2-1 1 rebuild- 
ing season with wins only 
against South Side and 
Woyne, the Trojan tennis team 
wilt have all winter and 
summer to aim toward that 
third week in August when 
practice will stort again.

Mike's Side 

by Mike Landrlgan 

At the start of every sports 
season, teams are drilled on 
basic fundamentals of that 
sport. Fundamentals are 
stressed right on up to the pro 
ranks. George Allen, Paul 
Brown. Don Shulo and Tom 
Landry ore four well-knov^'n 
successful pro coaches who 
hove stressed fundamentals in 

Coach Herman has stressed 
football basics but there have 
been some problems. Usually, 
'he older, experienced 
players have been taught the 
different techniques of 
blocking, tackling, passing 
and catching. I have been told 
thai some of our experienced 
people are now being taught 

FLOWERS ...for 

the basics of football- 
Looking down the rosier, 
you see names of new 
sophomores, juniors and a 
few seniors. In reality, this 
inexperienced team has only 
been "creamed" by Muncie 
North. In that game some of 
the players were seeing their 
first varsity action. 

Injuries have really plagued 
Elmhurst this year. The Trojans 
lost a valuable lineman 
before the season started in 
senior Jeff Allen. Jeff was 
supposed to hove a real shot 
at All-City honors. Instead Jeff 
has been watching from the 
side lines. 

Sophomore Doug Peters 
was injured early in the year. 
He is just now returning to the 

team after a five-week layoff. 
Doug is big and quick and a 

real help lo the defense. 

Sophomore Tim Beck and 
senior Lyie Howard were hurt 
during the Luers game but it is 
hoped they'll be able to return 
quickly. In the same gome, 
senior Dove Campbell 
sustained a leg injury and he's 
out for the rest of the season. 

Mark Spears has a neck 
injury that will affect at least 
one other sport. Not only was 
Mark valuable to our football 
team but also he is an 
excellent wrestler. During the 
rumble with Luers, Mark 
chipped a vertebrae. He won't 
play football any more this 
year. The doctor also said he 
won't be able to wrestle. 

The Trojan team has had an 
uphill fight. Support their 
efforts. It's a lot easier to give 
100% when you're playing in 
front of stands full of 
screaming backers. The 
players really appreciate your 
support. Try lo be in ihe 
stadium at their remaining 
ball games.

Movie ratings discussed, abortion rebuked 

To the editor: 

I feel that the movie 
rating system is outdated 
and unfair. These are the 
reasons I give for changing 
the system. 

1. The ratings are 
unreliable. For example, 
violent movies such as 
"Bonnie,and Clyde" get a 
"GP" rating, while, 
ironically, underage skinny 
dippers in "Woodstock" 
receive an "R" rating. 

2. A distant rating 
committee decides what I 
should see, they deprive me 
of my individual decision. 

3. The movie raters legally 
can prevent anyone under 18 
from seeing certain movies 
that they have rated "R" 

4. I am mature enough to 
know what I view as 
acceptable; I have my own 
morals. What I see should 
be an individual decision, 
not one that others make for 

to what can be expected in 
the film. My main point is 
that viewing regulations 
regarding age be dropped. 
This would allow free, 
informed, individual 
decisions, without forcing 
previous judgments on the

To the editor: 

I am writing in response 
to the letter to the editor in 
the last issue. The young 
lady seemed to think that 
solid facts are not good to 
use as evidence, that 
philosophical or unprovable

Troians upset South in overtime tiiriiler 

by Jim McCleneghen 

After a startling Trojan upset 
Over heavily favored South 
Side the Elmhurst football 
team, which w/os thought by 
many to be a repeat of last 
year's team, now has an 
excellent chance at the SAC 
south crown. 

The Trojans, now 1-1 in the 
SAC, are tied with Bishop 
Luers for second place ond 

one game behind South, 
which now sports a 2-1 record. 
However, there is still one 
more wrinkle in this sudden 
race. South Side has no more 
SAC gomes this season while 
the Trojans and Bishop Luers 
both play Wayne. Luers plays 
,the Generals on Oct. 25 and 
then on Nov, I. Elmhurst will 
meet the Generals to try and 
boost their record to 2-1 .

The Trojans' remaining

the Elmhurst hopes of winning 
a division title also depend on

Wayne game for all the marbles 

The Trojan football team 
boosted its SAC record to 1- 
1 going into their final and 
most important game 
against the Wayne Generals 
ihis Friday at Wayne 

The Generals, beaten last 
weekend by Luers, are now 
out of contention for the 
south division crown, while 
South Side and Bishop 
Luers are both 2-1 and 
waiting for the results of the 
Elmhurst-Wayne game to 
see who will represent the 
south part of the city. 

The Trojans are coming 
into Friday's game after a 
21-17 last minute thriller at 
North Side. Senior Reggie 
Hill ran for touchdowns in 
both halves to lead the 
Elmhurst running game. 

and a tough defense held 
North to only 7 points in the 
first half. 

However, the second half 
was dominated by North 
Side. Scoring once and 
adding the two point 
conversion brought the 
score to 21-15. The Trojan 
offense failed to mount a 
drive and were forced to give 
up the ball. North Side then 
marched down the field to 
the Elmhurst 1-foot line 
where the sticky defense 
held for 2 plays in a row. The 
offense was again held to 
little or no yardage and on 
fourth down Brian Russell 
intentionally fell in the end 
zone for a safety, thus 
giving up two points but 
also giving the Trojans a 
chance to kick off and put 

the ball at the other end of 
the field with Uttle time 

All in all the whole season 
comes down to the final 
game with Wayne. If the 
Generals win then South 
Side will be the south 
champion by virtue of 
beating Luers in the regular 
season. If Elmhurst wins all 
the athletic directors will 
vnt^ for the champion.

Vol. 35, No. 6 

November 13, 1974 

The girls' voUeybal] team, coached by Mrs. 
Cathy Russell, has been practicing diligently 
for the past five weeks in preparation for the 
upcoming sectionals Nov. 5, 6, and 7 at Wayne. 

The team's been having a bit of bad luck and 
they've been up against some of the top teams 
in the.^city. Coach Russell is hopeful for their 
remaining games though. She states that the 
potential is there but it's hard to find just the 
right combination of six girls who will work 
well together. 

Right combo shows up at Adams CcDtral 

They had the right combo Oct. 21 against 
Adams Central, whom they beat easily 13-8 
and 15-6. Unfortunately they lost to 
Homestead the same night in a close game. 
Still Coach Russell says the team knows its 
skills well and the girls are really "up" for 
every game. Yet the team experiences 
difficulty when up against strongly aggressive 
teams as they have been so far. 

The team rallied itself several times as seen 
by the Northrop game. Trojan girls suffered a 
close loss after playing three games. Elmhurst 
lost the first game 9-15. rallied to win the 
second 18-16. and then lost the final game IS- 

Four Trojan starters are seniors 

The six starters for the Trojans are seniors 
Sally Hinton, Marty Kelly, Bonnie Carrion. 
and Dede Whitman, with juniors Betty 
Carrion and Carol Quance. Coach Russell says 
the seven on the bench are of equal ability but 
lack of experience keeps them from starting. 
She is really enthusiastic about the 
sophomores on the team and feels that it's 
going to be a solid team for Elmhurst in the

AFS announces choices for 
international study program 

StueCe*a CMttcd fr()!^*t«u*t^ ea^Mwai 

Seniors Pat Prader and Lesbe Raymer 
were chosen by a committee of nine, as 
possible exchange students through the 
Americans Abroad Program (A. A). The 
committee consisted of members of the adult 
AFS club and one from the student club. 

The A.A. program is designed to enable 
students to spend either a three or a nine- 
month period in a foreign country- The 
students live as members of a family and 
community, participating in that country's 
culture. They have responsibilities, friends, 
and family life. 

Both girls will have their names and their 
many forms sent to New York, After further 
examination, the Americans Abroad 
program will advise them whether or not 
their applications have been accepted. 

Pat and Leslie are not competing with each 
other. They are among a group of students 
from the entire United States who are 
applying for a place in the program. 

Both agree on toughest question 

The question asked by the committee 
which both Pat and Leslie agreed was the 
toughest was, "Why should we pick you 
instead of the others? Why do you feel you're 
more qualified? " 

"I waa extremely nervoua-I was thinking 

that my whole future depended on this 
interview," commented Pat. She also said 
that she really couldn't bebeve she was 
chosen adding she was afraid that any 
minute they would say they were "just 
kidding. " 

When asked where she would like to go, 
Leslie said. "Anywhere they send me will be 
fine- I don't really think the specific country 
will make much difference in the experience 
from an overall view." 

Family and friends interviewed 

Both of their families were interviewed on 
Nov. 6 by members of the committee. In 
addition, both girls must have personal 
relationship applications completed by 
family and friends. 

Pat. who is president of the Elmhurst 
chapter of AFS, plans to attend LU.Fort 
Wayne, majoring in accounting. She would 
like to remain active in AFS through the 
adult chapter. 

Leslie, also planning to attend college, is in 
hopes of attending Purdue University in 
Lafayette. "I want to major in biological 
sciences and get into genetics. I have the job 
I want all figured out. Now all I have to do is 
learn how to do it and find someplace that 
wants me," she commented. 

■It'll really be a great thing to do 
with your Saturday," commented 
student council president senior 
Derek Paris about the upcoming 
"Elmhurst first annual post-football 
season, pre-basketball season, city- 
wide, everybody welcome, Vail 
come carnival." 

"I hope to involve the entire 
student body," Derek began, 
continuing, "Although Elmhurst 
students are putting it together, 
many other area student councils 
will be making booths and hopefully 
attendance will include many 
students other than those from 


Aside from the area student 
councils, many Elmhurst 

organizations are planning booths. 
The ideas range in activities from 
Dart Throws and Duck Ponds to the 
Dunking Tank and pie throw (which 
will provide targets such as none 
other than Principal Horstmeyer 
and Mr. Miller). 

' 'The object of the carnival. ' ' 
stated Derek, "is really to provide a 
good time." The student council is 
merely acting as the organizing 
force behind the groups which will 
be trying to make some money 
through the carnival. 

"I think it's going to go vary 
well," commented senior Greg 
Hershberger. "The Quill and Scroll 
spook house will probably be one of 
the more exciting events." 

The jazz band," informed Bob 
Cross, "will be playing for two half- 
hour periods throughout the 

Tickets will be sold at a set price 
presale and at the door. There will 
also be a small door fee collected. 
Booths will be set up in the English 
hall, cafeteria and the publications 

"Prizes will be things that are 
worth winning," reported president 
Paris. Plans now include prizes 
varying from 32-oz. coke to stuffed 

In addition to all the other 
activities, the night of the carnival 
will see the crowning of the "Queen 
of the carnival." The girl with the 
most pennies will be entitled to 
claim this title and will be crowned 
late in the evening. Girls are 
welcome to start collecting pennies 
any time and are reminded that 
student council will receive the 
benefits from the contest. 

"It's really hoped the clubs are as 
enthusiastic about this as student 
council is," commented junior 
Marty Miller. "Time is really at a 
premium and the amount of work 
that goes into this will be reflected 
in the success of the evening.

Teacher Ambassador e:(plains uieuis 

by Sue Marquis 

"I am still adapting to American 
cultures and it is quite a learning 
experience," stated Miss Francoise 
Reybet, who is spending six weeks 
at Elmhurst with French and 
government classes. 

As a foreign exchange teacher 
from France. Mile. Reybet is here 
with the Experiment in 
International Living Program. This 
is an organization that tries to 
promote better understanding with 
the people and cultures of other 

"Even though I have studied 
English 12 years, I am still learning 
the language," said Mile. Reybet. 

School days differ 

French school days are somewhat 
different from American . Their 
school week lets the students have 
Wednesday off but to make up for 
Wednesday, they go half days on 
Saturday. In the class room before 
school starts, all the students must 
stand until the teacher arrives and 
gives permission to be seated. "Also 
the students seem to have more 
respect in speaking out their 
opinions in France than 
Americans," compared Mile. 

Dating in France usually starts 
after graduation from high school. 
Twenty is usually the average age 
for marriage. Things in general are 

taken more seriously. 
Family life very meaningful 

Family life is much more 
meaningful to families in France. 
The evening meal is the most 
important part of the day. Many 
things are discussed and this is the 
time most decisions are made. Also 
the whole family is usually in on all 
the decisions made. The whole 
family unit is much stronger- 
There aren't as memy cars on the 
streets since the legal driving age in 
France is 18. This really helps the 
traffic jams that are sometimes 
experienced here in America. 
The only office in the government 

that the people vote on is the 
presidency. The president then 
appoints the rest of the cabinet and 
representatives as we know them. 
Also the term of office is 7 years. 

The candidates are allowed to 
make speeches but the cut-downs 
aren't brought out and made into 
big issues. 

America is nice country 

In conclusion, Mile. Reybet said, 
"America is a nice country but it 
will take awhile for me to feel 
completely safe about being able to 
speak out." 

Soloists compete 
in speech meets

by Mariljrnn Scherer 

The solo speech team competed 
last Saturday at both Carroll High 
School and Whitko High School in 
Whitley Coimty. 

The varsity speakers went to the 
Carroll meet, and the novices 
competed at Whitko. A rather 
dismal afternoon followed, with 
both teams failing to earn 
sweepstakes trophies. 

Varsity speakers placing were 
senior Mary Freygang, 2nd in 
oratorical interpretation, and junior 
Marilyrm Scherer, 2nd in Congress. 

Novices place also 

Novice speakers placing were 
sophomores Karyn Heiney, 2nd in 
oratorical interpretation; Troi Lee, 
4th in oratorical interpretation; 
Shelj Winans, 8th in poetry; Tod 
Huntley, 1st in boys' extemp; Jan 
Dowling, 5th in girls' extemp; 
Nancy McAfee, 7th in discussion; 
Katy Yoimg, 7th in poetry; junior 
Dave Beutler, 7th in impromptu. 

The teams will travel to New 
Haven High School on Nov. 16. 

"For the first time in several 
years, the speech team is going to 
sponsor a solo tournament," Mr. 
Robert Stookey declared. "The 
tournament will be held in February, 
also the solo team will be hosting the 
speech sectionals in March."

At 7; 30 the money began rolling 
in. Long before the doors dosed at 
10:30, the tickets ran out and were 
replaced with pieces of cardboard 
labeled 10?. 

Elmhursfs First Annual Penny 
Arcade was successful in providing 
a way for the school's clubs and 
organizations to make money. A 
50e general admission was charged 
to pay for prizes, policemen, and as 
a contribution to the jazz band. 

The Jazz Band, dressed in 
powder-blue sliirts and blue jeans, 
made two half-hour appearances; 
from 7:30 - 8:30 and from 10:00 ■ 
10:30. During these times, the 
listeners took breaks from 
spending money and relaxed in the 

Another one-time event 
Saturday evening, was the Pie- 
Eating Contest sponsored by the 
Junior Class. The contestants, in 

teams of two, challenged the 
science and math departments' Mr. 
Byron Carrier. It was a race to see 
who could eat one pie in the 
shortest amount of time. Mr. 
Carrier won! 

The other activities were spread 
out in the cafeteria and the halls 
surrounding it. They included pie- 
throwing from the Forum Club, 
picture-taking on a paper moon by 
AFS. musical chairs from Afro- 
American Club, spin-art from 
student council, a cake-walk from 
COE. and a Haunted House in the 
tunnels by Quill and Scroll. 

Other student councils from the 
city attended. Northrop had a ping- 
pong table set up where students 
could ''paddle a Brujn". 
Homestead. Bishop Luers, and 
North Side also had booths. 

The work on the Penny Arcade 
started in student c^^ncil with 

planning. Comnuttees were formed 
to advertise and organize and Mr. 
Horstmeyer was consulted often. 
Then it was up to the various clubs 
to design and build their booths. 

When Friday came, some 
organizations moved their things 
in while student council members 
and student volunteers moved 
desks and tables out, 

Saturday there was a six hour 
period of draping crepe paper, 
setting up booths and general 
decorating. At 6:00 everyone was 
back for last minute preparations. 

The work did not end with the 
last note of the jazz band at 10:30. 
Everything that had been done had 
to be undone. Tickets were 
counted, desks and tables were 
moved back into place, signs and 
trimmings were taken down, floors 
swept, and finally, at about 12:30. 
it was all over and the workers left. 

Class visits courf; hosfs speaker 

Prior to attending an actual 
courtroom session, Mrs. Banks' 
Business Law class studied civil 
crimes, felonies, and role playing of 
rape, narcotic, and murder trials. 
Each student acted as a prosecuting 
attorney, defendant, the accused, 
and a member of the jury while 
studying the procedures of a fair 

Sixteen students of the class were 
able to witness a real trial 
Wednesday, Nov. 6, in the old 
County Court House. Court began 
session at 9: 30 a.m. with a rape case. 

Charges were drawn on two 
counts of sexual as suit on two 
twelve year old girls by the State of 
Indiana against the accused. The 
law declares any female under the 
age of 16 sexually assaulted, a 
victim of rape. 

The first process of the trial was 
the selection of the jury. After two 
hours of elimination, twelve people 
were chosen as members of the jury- 
It is the jury's responsibility to not 
only determine the fate of the 
accused, but also to set the term of 
sentence if he is found guilty. The 
sentence for a crime such as this is 
no less than two years and no more 
than 21 years. 

The actual questioning of the trial 
viewed by the class involved the 
prosecuting attorney questioning 
one of the victims. The court then 
recessed for lunch. 

Guest speaker in Mrs. Banks' Business 
Law class recently was Mr. Richard Sive, an 
insurance dealer for the Horace Mann 
Company, an insurance agency that protects 
school teachers. 

Mr. Sive spoke to the fifth period class 
about car insurance and its necessity among 
teenagers. He stated that in a time when 
there are so many high school students 
buying new and used automobiles, much 
knowledge must be passed on to teenagers, 
so that wise decisions may be made when 
buying and insuring their cars. 

Some of the other subjects touched upon 
by Mr- Sive were: UMC (Uninsured 
Motorists' Coverage), good drivers 
discount, drunk driving, collision coverage, 
motorcycle coverage, accidents in parking 
lots and how to collect when you become 
involved in one. 

Election utilizes skills of a hundred Trojans 

November 5 once again held 
special meaning to all patriotic 
Americans. Voting day extracted 
one hundred students from 
Elmhurst alone to serve as pollsters. 
Approximately three-fourths of 
those helping worked for the 
Democratic party. 

Senior Barb Bowen pointed out, 
"I learned quite a bit about how 
each precinct is run and what goes 
on behind the scenes. My job 
working for the Democratic party 
was to get the Democrats to go out 
and vote even if it meant taking 
them myself. I really enjoyed doing 

Junior Diane Knox commented. 
"My job working for the Democrats 
was holding the poll books here at 

E Unburst. This involved getting 
people's names and addresses when 
they come in and checking them off 
in the precinct poll book. I enjoyed it 
very much. I met a lot of people and 
also learned how to use a voting 

Other Trojans commented that 
"they wouldn't have missed it for 
the world." 

Junior Tina Hinton expressed 
that she really enjoyed the 
opportunity of working the polls and 
it was a great educational 
experience for her. 

Another job held by one of 
Elmhursfs volunteer workers 
included vote sohciting, going from 
door to door asking if the people in 
residence needed help in getting to 

the polls to vote or even if baby- 
sitting was necessary. 

Still another job consisted of 
standing outside the polls and 
trying to persuade the voters. This 
was done by handing out pamphlets 
and t^e like. 

One discontented comment was, 
"The job I did was very boring but 
necessary. I would never do it 

Most jobs consisted of pushing 
propaganda for whatever party the 
workers supported. 

All in all, it seems to have been a 
very educational and enjoyable 
experience for those one hundred 
Elmhurst students involved in 
"Election '74." " 

Driver's ed still available 

Annual pops concert draws 500 

Approximately 500 people assembled in 
the gymnasium for the annual Pops Concert 
last Wednesday. The participating groups 
consisted of the concert band, the Trojan 
Singers, and the two jazz bands. 

According to Mr. Randy Brugh, director of 
the bands, "the music that the bands played 
was appealing to both adults and kids. It was 
music they know and enjoy." He also 
commented that they had been preparing for 
this concert for three weeks. 

The Concert Band led off the program with 
an arrangement of "Barnum & Bailey's 
Favorites " by K. L. King, and another. 
"Themes from Italian Movies." 

Pop-corn seeds 

The Trojan Singers were next, directed by 
Mr. AJ Schmutz, The group sang six pieces, 
concluding with "Spinning Wheel" by 
Thomas. When announcing the piece. Mr. 
Schmutz told the audience that one of the 
groups' instruments was an empty coffee 
can, half full of pop-corn seeds. 
The two jazz bands dispbyed their group 

talent and individual talents. Both played 
selections of Thad Jones, who is one of the 
leading jazz composers. 

"The sophomores are good workers," said 
Mr. Brugh. The Pops Concert was the first 
time, off the football field, that many 
sophomores had a chance to perform as

Council announces plans for dance 

Proceeds for tour 

"You Are the Sunshine of My Life" wBs 
arranged for the concert band by a former 
member of EHS. Van Hunter. The selection 
"An American In Paris" by Gershwin, was 
one of the first jazz pieces ever accepted by 
classical musica fans. 

The two jazz bands were caUed Jazz Band 
8:00 and Jazz Band 3:00 because these are 
the times they meet. 

After the concert, many students 
commented on their fine performances. 

The proceeds from the concert will be used

A semi-forma] Christmas (iance is 
being planneti for Elmhurst 
students. The student council 
announced this week that plans are 
under way for the holiday festivity, 
to take place Dec. 21 at the 
Waynedale Community Center 
behind the fire station. 

Although details are still being 
worked out by student council 
officers, tentative plans feature a 
"modern, semi-slow band," 
decorations that include a 
Christmas tree, red and green 
festoons, and refreshments. 
According to student council vice 

president Mike Arnold, "Right now 
we're getting through the Penny 
Arcade and then we'll have time to 
focus on the Christmas dan'-e." 

Added president Derel' Paris, 
"Right now Renee Harter, who 
brought the idea to us, has been 
lining up the band and planning the 
decorations along with student 
council members Cindy Lude and 
Sandy Demaree." 

Council members have hopes that 
interest will be high for this event, 
and conclude that anyone wishing to 
help the planning committee should 
talk to officers or members of the 

Children's liferature explored 

by Marie Zacher 

Can you imagine high school 
juniors and seniors reading Aesop's 
Fables or Alice in Wonderland? An 
addition to the elective English 
system this year is a course in 
children's literature. 

Taught by Mrs. Shelley 
Wellington and Miss Jennifer 
Manth, the course has attracted 
enough students to make five 

Material used in the class includes 
such masterpieces as AndersoD's 
Fairy Tales, Grimm's Fairy Tales. 
and a book entitled ... And Now 
Miguel. The students are also 
required to do written and oral book 
reviews on children's books. 

Students create stories 

Another project the students 
have or will undertake is writing 
their own fairy tales and fables. In 
Mrs. Wellington's class special 
semester projects such as bulletin 
boards, scene construction, and an 
illustrated story book will be done. 

Both teachers are working 
together on a project where their 
classes will be going to area 
elementary schools for an hour, 
having story time with children in 
grades kindergarten through three. 
The main purpose of this is to use 
the experience as an evaluation 
device for children's literature, to 
see the children's reactions to the 

books. Each student must choose a 
book that may stimulate a child's 
curiosity or teach him a lesson in 
some way. 

Class takes closer look 

Members of the class take a close 
look at the books they are reading. 
Examples are the illustrations - are 
they realistic to the story or do they 
let the child's mind wander? Some 
books have no words and let the 
child create a story in his own mind. 
"Little" things like color schemes 
in a picture or expressions in the 
characters' faces all go into creating 
a children's book. 

In the fables and fairy tales there 
are stories using animals with 
human qualities. This is to teach the 
reader mistakes or wrong doings of 
humans without actually coming 
out and saying so. 

The main objective of the course 
is to look at children's literature 
from an adult viewpoint, to be 
aware of cultural morals and how to 
apply them to modern day 
happenings. Children's literatiu-e 
helps adults to understand the needs 
of children and how it can fulfill the 

If students didn't get to read 
Alice in Wonderland or Grimm's 
Fairy Tales when they were 
childien, now is their chance. And 
even if they did, maybe they should 
try it a second time and compare 
their views. 

Students learn to be consumers ; 
taught money management 

"/ want to know why you and 
your teachers did not tell and teach 
about life and the hard, critically 
practical world. " 

This letter from a man in his early 
thirties to his high school principal 
reflects the views of many persons 
once they leave school. The man was 
frustrated because he did not learn 
the things that truly applied later in 
life ■- how to budget, get a job or a 
loan, or how to resist high pressure 

Now Elmhurst students have an 
opportunity to learn these and other 
related things they could not 
otherwise learn except through 
experience. The new consumer's 
education class is designed to give 
students knowledge that will apply 
to their post-academic lives. 

Class covers various topics 

The class, taught by both Mrs. 
Roma Jean Bradburn and Mr. 
Arland Reinhard, covers such topics 
as credit, budgeting, spending, 
insurance, and buying cars. The 
class is taught by both teachers 
because of the wide range of 
subjects included under the heading 
"consumer's education." The course 
is not only business but home 
economics and socially related. 

Therefore, the teaching is divided 
between Mr. Reinhard of the 
business department and Mrs. 
Bradburn of the home economics 

Since the class is set up this way, 
students can add their credits in 
either of these two areas to apply to 
their major or minor. 

The classes usually meet in small 
groups, but occasionally meet 
together for special projects and 
also to hear speakers such as Mr. 
Gary Cox from People's Trust Bank, 
Mr. Joe Beck from the Magnavox 
Credit Union, and Mr. George 
Beaudway, a credit counselor, talk 
about money and credit. 

Importance stressed 

The class, open to juniors and 
seniors, is one semester long and is 
scheduled for second period. There 
are still openings for students 
wishing to takethe course. 

Mrs. Bradburn urges the 
importance of the course and cites 
Mr. Beck, who said, "Consumerism 
will never reach half of its potential 
until it stresses consumer education. 
An enlightened, concerned, 
educated, and resourceful consumer 
can only come from our educational

Club pursues careers 

It is not often that high school 
students have the chance to witness 
an operation or a trial. However, 
through an organization called the 
Explorer's Club, these and many 
other experiences are available to 

The Explorer's Club originally 
started out as a Boy Scout program ; 
the step after an Eagle Scout. It 
then branched out to include high 
school students of outstanding 
service in the community or school - 
male and female. 

There are many other Elmhurst 
students participating in the Law 
branch of the Explorer's Club. 
Although there has only been a 
couple of meetings, the members are 
becoming aware of what the club 
will be doing this year. PossibiUties 
such as watching some trials, taking 
trips to colleges and prisons and 
Ustening to area lawyers speak were 
discussed. Some would like to 
organize a trip to view the National 
Congress. The group will be 
deciding' which segment of law they 
would Uke to study this year at one 
of the future meetings at the Fort 
Wayne Courthouse. 

Explorer's Clubs are sponsored

Frank Zappa does concert ....badly 

by Barb Harman 

Sitting through the Frank Zappa 
concert last Friday, 1 couldn't help 
wondering whether I had been bom 
five years too late or whether the 
concert was just plain bad. 

The more I thought about it 
thatfgh, the more convinced I was 
that it had to be a combination of 

"Rock 'n roll" 

The entire evening started off 
badly when the back-up band spent 
30 minutes playing solid "rock 'n 
roll" and "boogie". That was great 
for "rock 'n rollers/' (who 
incidentally, turned out in fuU force - 
a derogatory comment in itself), and 
older people who saw hard rock 
through its musical prime. But for 
those into more progressively styled 
music, a more enjoyable evening 
could have been spent listening to 
old Bobby Vinton tunes played on 
the spoons. 

When it came time for Zappa to 
perform, it was the rock n roll 
freaks who held things up by 
refusing to sit down. "This isn't 
Bachman Turner Overdrive." said 
the man representing the Mothers of 
Invention. "Frank Zappa wants this 
to be a comfortable concert. Please 
sit down." 

The Bachman Turner comment 

raised my hopes a little. Good, I 
thought, now may be we can have a 
little entertainment, Unfortunately, 
as the concert progressed, I wasn't 
so sure that it wasn't Bachman 
Turner and they had just sold us the 
tickets under a pretense. 

The concert started with an old 
favorite, "Stinkfoot", but the words 
were indecipherable and the hard 
rock of the Mothers seemed as out of 
place as had the first bands. On the 
whole, the entire show followed the 
pattern of the first number. The 
group rambled through long 
monotonous, repetitious strains, 
and the few vocals there were had to 
be translated as if listening to a 
foreign language. None of the satiric 
wit of Zappa came through and I 
found myself wishing the concert 
would end 1 5 minutes after it 

So. I concluded. Frank Zappa has 
become an anachronism. His brand 
of hard rock can never compete with 
today's fourth stream rock which is 
closer to Bartok than to the Beatles. 
His intellectual prowess is really all 
he can offer to those who were 
brought up on the avant garde King 
Crimson, the melodious Yes and the 
intricate jazz of Chick Corea and 
Keith Jarrett. Perhaps the next time 
Zappa comes, it should be on the 
lecture circuit.

The Equal Rights Amendment was 
first presented to the National Congress 
in 1923- In 1972. 49 years after it was first 
introduced to Congress, it was ready for 
the states to ratify. 

Thirty-six states have ratified the 
ERA, with only two more states' 
approval needed for the ERA to become 
law, Indiana is one of the few states lef^ 
which hasn't ratified it. and chances are it 
won't ratify it next year. 

Parties offer support 

In 1972, the Democratic Party 
supported the ERA and stated in its 
platform: "Women historically have been 
denied a full voice in the evolution of the 
political and social institutions of this 
country, and are therefore allied with all 
under-represented groups in a common 
desire to form a more humane and 
compassionate society." 


The Republican Party, too, encouraged 
the ERA and stated in its platform: "The 
Republican Party recognizes the great 
contributions women have made to our 
society as homemakers and mothers, as 
contributors to the community through 

Sfudenfs and, staff affempi better relations through committee

Ten members of the

formed the school's first

Committee, set up to meet

This committee was 
organized under the 
direction of the 

Superintendent's office and 
its members chosen by 
recommendation of the 
student council. The main 
thrust of the committee

labor force in careers outside the home,

responsibilities for women, and believe 
that progress in these areas is needed to

of American women both in the home and 
outside the home," 

Clarify status 

The purpose of the ERA is to clarify the 
legal status of women, which has never 
been defined by the CoDstitudon. The 
only rights guaranteed to women by the 
Constitution are the right to vote and 
hold office. 

The Democratic and Republican parties 
are not the only ones supporting the 
ERA: approximately 70 national 
organizations Including the American Bar 
Association, the American Psychological 
Association, and the NAACP support it, 
compared to approximately 10 national 
organizations such as the Communist 
party, the John Birch Society, and HOT 
DOG (Humanitarians Opposed to 
Degrading Our' Girls) which openly 
opposed it in 1972. 

It seems ironical that when so many 
organizations support the ERA it has not 
been able to make the required 38-state 
ratification. The ERA has until 1979 to be 
ratified. Women are People, and do make 
important contributions to society . One

'A/ly Three Angels" cost suuessi\i\ 

by Marilynn Soberer 

The Elmhurst school play, 
"My Three Angels," opened 
last Friday evening in the 
Elmhurst gym. The 
receptive crowd assembled 
at 8 p.m. 

The cast and crew 
working on the play spent 
approximately two months 
rehearsing and preparing 
the set for the three-act, two 
and a half hour performance. 
The play takes place in 
French Guiana where the 
temperature has dropped to 
104 degrees in expectation of 
Christmas Day, 

Set stands out 

The attractive set. built 
by stagecraft class 
members, cast members and 
Mr. Goss. is a small village 
store resting right in the 
middle of a prison society 
Felix and Erailie Ducotel, 
portrayed by juniors Tom 
Young and Sarah Stewart, 
own the store, which on 
Christmas Eve is plagued by 

financial burdens. 

Their daughter. Marie 
Louise, played by junior 
Melissa Hunter, is in love 
with the villain Uncle Henri 
Trochard's nephew, Paul. 
Juniors Jeff Sills and Dave 
Archer play Uncle Henri and 

The plot begins when the 
three "angels," seniors Jeff 
Green, Dave Silletto. who is 
the lead "angel", and junior 
Larry Daugherty decide to 
help Felix save his store 
from the Grasp of rich Uncle 
Henri, and at the same time 
help Marie Louise win Paul. 

Angels epark plot 

The "angels" spend 
Christmas Eve with the 
Ducotels and their sarcastic 
personalities are well- 
played, amusing, and add a 
great deal to the show. 

Madame Parole, a comical 
character played credibly by 
junior Nancy Beadie, 
provides for two very funny 
scenes, one in act one and 

ther other in act three. 

Junior Kent Gaskill also 
performs as the lieutenant 
who enters the plot towards 
the end of the third act. His 
character enters just in time 
to end the show on a happy 

The set for the play 
consists of the Ducotels' 
home, with exits to the 
store, the kitchen, the 
garden, and the roof. 

Play recommended 

The performance given by 
the entire cast is both 
amusmg and in some parts 
heart-warming. It's well 
worth the time of any talent- 
appreciating person. 

Directed by Mr. Don Goss 
with assistants Miss- 
Jennifer Manth and Mrs. 
Shelley Wellington, the play 
runs next Friday and 
Saturday at 8 p.m. The 
performances and the crew 
effort add to the entire 
production of the 1974 play. 

To the editor: 

There appears to be an 
amazing apathy in the 
student body toward the 
student council. This 
apathy, I feel, stems from 
the lack of information 
concerning the student 
council provided to the 
student body. 

It seems to me that tne 
publications department 
could provide more adequate 
coverage of student council 
activities. When the council 
has a meeting, why couldn't 
a brief account of the 
minutes be pub'dshed in the 
■'digest of news"? It seems 
to me that student council 
activities directly affect the 
student body. 

Another major problem is 
student involvement. People 
who are not directly 
involved in student council 
iknow little or nothing of the 
' way the student council is 
run. They have no idea how 
to relay their ideas to the 
student council, or what 
action, if any, will be taken if 
they do. Why couldn't 
suggestion boxes be placed 
throughout the school? if 
the student body could 

handle the responsibility, 
there is no reason why this 
couldn't be just as effective 
at Elmhurst as it is at 
several other Ft. Wayne 
high schools. The other 
thing that the student body 
can do is merely talk to any 
student council 


Student Council, although 
it has plenty of money and 
time to donate directly to 
students and student 
activities, and although it 
directly affects student life 
throughout the year, is one 
of the least publicized and 
least known organizations in 
the school. I believe this is a 
great oversight not only on 
the part of the publications 
department, but of the 
student body, faculty, 
administration and the 
council itself.

Seen a professional 
football game lately? Maybe 
you saw the Buffalo Bills vs. 
New England Patriots 
game. Even if you did see 
that game. I'm sure that it 
did not compare with the 
November 12 Powerpuff 
football game. 

Let's compare the two 
games. In the Buffalo-New 
England game, the starting 
quarterbacks were Joe 
Ferguson and Jim Plunkett, 
respectively. Both offensive 
leaders probably weigh in at 
about 180 pounds. 

The starting quarterbacks 

puff teams organized 

1 1 • r»alur* 

for the junior-senior girls 
football game were Selma 
Vaughn, and Barb Bowen. 
These QB's probably weigh 
130 pounds, at the most. 

The professionals could 
throw the ball eighty yards, 
if necessary - the Elmhurst 
girls couldn't throw a 
football that far if their lives 
depended on it! 

In the professional game, 
the uniforms are so complete 
that one couldn't tell where 
padding stopped and bodies 
began. With the Trojan gals, 
nothing resembled a uniform 
except the sexy jerseys, that 
were ten sizes too big. 

The gal gridders not only 
stunned the crowd with odd 
unprofessional plays - but 
they were encored by 
respective class 
cheerleaders. How could 
O.J. Simpson top that? 

Practices were held when 
the weather was nice, or 
whenever two or more 
persons from the same team 
got together. Professionals 
undergo gruelling practices 
for the entire regular season 
of play. 


5AvC>(.F/aD m f^t>>\ON*i 

The pros played 
game with only one thing in 
mind - winning. They knew 
that winning was money in 
their pocket. The girls 
played merely for fun. to 
give fellow Trojans a chance 
to see a change of pace in 
sports. The only thing they 
had to gain was recognition 
and a few broken bones. 

Maybe you saw both 
games. If so, then your mind 
was probably sports-

game less than a month and a half other Fort Wayne schools would 

away Coach Lucy Doswell called the have the experienced player 

first organizational meeting on advantage. Elmhurst would only be 

" " "' " beginners. What would the team's 

chances be then? 



Nearly sixty girls were 
anticipated to turn out for the first 
meeting, but a dismal number of 
only 20 were in attendance. 

Girls have rights 

Those at the meeting were simply 
advised of their rights as female 
athletes attending Elmhurst High 
School. Some of those rights are: ( 1 ) 
the girls' team will be granted the 
use of the boys' regulation-size 
gymnasium after the dinner hour 
(unless, of course, there is an 
interscholastic meet taking place); 
(2) any other practice will be in the 
girls' gym, or maybe the weight 
room; (3) the evenings that the team 
does use the boys' gym (granted the 
athletic department gives the team 
a key) will be the only practice the 
girls' will know in a regulation-size 

Waiting won't work 

Some people have suggested that 

Every school at one time or 
another goes through that awesome 
season with beginners. This year the 
girls will be no more beginners than 
any other team in Fort Wayne. 
Where is there a rule that says 
beginners have to be losers? 

Sophomores gain experience 

Hard work, practice, and 
determination can easily overcome 
the facility dilemma, Several of the 
players out for the team are 
sophomores. This means 

experienced players in the next two 
years - the problem of begiimers, 

The other advantage that a team 
can have is school backing, spirit, 
and support. When a stadium or 
bleachers are filled with fans, a team 
usually gets the incentive to play 
hard £md win. 
The girls have their first match-up 
waiting for Ehnhurst to build a new on Jan. 7. The game will be held in 
gymnasium would be a better idea ... the Elmhurst gym, with the Trojans 
that starting a team in a few years facing Concordia, 
would probably result in a different Can giris play basketball? The 
season. This would be a definite only way to find out is for fans to 
struggle for the ftjture girls' teams, attend the games and see.

In past few years the Fort 
Wayne Conmnmity Schools have 
recognized the equal rights of 
females in athletics by giving them 
their own sports to participate in, 
or letting them compete in male- 
dominated, non-contact sports. 

The girls have actively 
participated in the sports started 
for them, like tennis, volleyball, 
gymnastics, and track. But they 
have not shown as much interest in 
the male non-contact sports such 
as cross country and goli 

Well, thia may be the year all of 
that changes. In a sport which has 
been unofRcially added to the EHS 
curriculum, both girls and guys

success. This new aport ia called 

Although teepeeing has been 
done for as long as anyone can 
remember, this has been the first 
year at Elmhurst that it has been 
done on a mass scale. It all started 
when a group of seniors (Cindy 
Bradtmiller. Denise Stein, Dan 
Avery, George Huber, Cathy 
Brock, and Donna BelUs I conspired 
to _di8play their talents on the 
lawns of Mike Landrigan's, Terry 
Brutton's and Mike Arnold's 

homes. Well, of course the parties 
who were the victims quickly found 
out who had given them the gifts 
and decided to retaliate. 

So around 4:30 one moming the 
victims dragged themselves out of 
bed and hastily displayed their own 
similar talents on the lawns of 
Cindy Bradtmiller's, Denise Stein's 
and Donna Bellis's houses. This 
was all fun. but the guys couldn't 
pass up the opportunity to do a 
good job on the Huber residence. 
So, at 1 30 the next moming two of 
them took 25 rolls of toilet paper. 2 
trash can liners of shredded paper 
and a package of paper towels and 
distributed them in trees and 
shrubs and on the lawn of Mr. 
Huber's estate. 

All of this activity of course 
made quick news in the halls of 
EHS. So from then on it has been 
very chaotic trying to figure out 
who has teepeed who, and who has 
been teepeed. Especially the night 
last week when approximately 
eleven houses were caught off 
guard on the same night. 

So if your house has been teepeed 
lately we can't tell you who has 
done it for sure. But we can give 
you a list of known artists who 

have been active lately. The list 
includes Terry Brutton, Lynn 
Brown. Mike Arnold, Mike 
Landrigan, Donna Bellis, Denise 
Stein, Cindy Bradtmiller, Dave 
Campbell, Keith Bradtmiller, Dan 
Avery, CrysUl Cary, Cathy Cary. 
Mike Duray, Terry Emmons, Greg 
Hershberger, Jim Theye, Melissa 
Hunter, Carol Quance. Jim 
McCleneghen. Derek Paris, Lyle 
Howard, Kevin Stephenson, Jim 
Norton. Dan Landrigan, Dave 
Boyer, Debbie Janson. George 
Huber. Joe Morken, Paul 
Frankewich, Angle Gensic, Mark 
Spears, and others who have 
managed to keep their names and 
facesout of sight. 

With all of this experience in our 
own school we collected some tips 
for beginners, 

1. Don't buy the cheapest stuff 
possible. Go for broke and get the 
most expensive paper. You'll find it 
easier to unroU. 

2. Shredded paper looks best on 
shrubs and bushes, but it is kind of 
hard to get cleaned up (right 
George?) so don't go overboard 
when scattering it. 

3. When the rolls land on the 
ground break them off just a foot 
or two above the grass. This causes 
a pretty swaying motion when 
caught by a breeze. 

4. Make sure the house of your 
victim doesn't have a dog who will 
bite you or alert the house. 

5. Remember the art of teepeeing 
is all in fun and if you are an artist 
one night, you might be the victim 
the next. So keep up the good work 
and try to have a photographer 
with you on your next job.

Milkshakes served at 

by Roberta Cohen 

A milkshake machine here 

,t Elmhurst? This is a real 
jossibility for the near 
jiture if all continues to go 
jell with the milkshake 
„achine now being used at 
(Vayne High School. 

According to Miss 
Catharine Feustel, 
supervisor of food services 
for Fort Wayne Community 
Schools, this machine comes 
in many different sizes, 
icpending on what is 
needed. The machine at 
ffayne has a capacity for 
acre than two hundred 10- 
ounce milkshakes, which are 
sold for 35« each. 

In experimenting with 
this machine, the food 
department is trying to find 
out exactly what the 
advantages and 
disadvantages are. 

One ot the biggest 
problems anticipated was 
that the machine would not 
be able to keep up with the 
demand. If the problem had 
occurred, the solution would 
have been to bring in a 
larger machine. 

Another possible problem 
would have been that the 
machine could not freeze the 
milkshakes fast enough. To 
solve that problem, a larger 
motor would have been used 
in order to increase freezing 

A third possibility is that 
the milkshakes would be too 
expensive to make and serve 
without increasing the price 
of the regular lunch. The 
answer to that is to serve the 
milkshakes only in an a la 
carte line. 

The milkshake machine 
does have advantages other 


than just . making 

milkshakes, according to 
Miss Feustel, It can be used 
tor frozen desserts such as 
orange sherbet made from 
real orange juice. It can also 
be used to make soft ice 
cream in different flavors. 

Although Wayne is the 
only school in the system 
using a milkshake machine 
at present, chances are 
pretty good that other 
schools will soon have one if 
the machine at Wayne 
continues to be a success

Lee ninth in sectionals Netmen inexperienced 

The Elmhurst cross 
country team recently 
participated in the Fort 
Wayne Cross Country 
Sectionals held at Shoaff 
Park. Led by senior Paul 
Stevens and sophomore Tim 
Lee. the Trojans placed 
seventh out of 21 area teams 
with a 203 point team total. 

Northrop took first place, 
paced by Bob Davis and Ron 
Ruick who placed second 
and third respectively. Brad 
Jacobson captured first 
place for individual honors. 

In this year's sectional the 
top four teams and the first 
five individual finishers 
went on to run in the Cross 
Country Regionals also held 
■It Shoaff Park. 

The following are the 
frojan harriers and their 
time for the 2'/2 mile event:

Rich Knuth 13:56: and 
sophomore Chad Cline 

Placing in the top twenty 
were Tim Lee tenth and Paul 
Stevens fourteenth. Lee who 
still has two years at 
Elmhurst will be back to 
lead the cross country team 
on to two hopefully 
successful seasons and 
possibly to a state title 
which with the team's 
previous record may not be 
as impossible as it seems. 

In preparation for their 
season the cross country 
team began running in the 
last part of August. They 
ran between six and nine 
miles a day until their 

season began. Each 
individual has run between 
350 and 400 miles since the 
season began. 

This year's cross country 
season was a complete turn 
around from last year when 
the Trojans boasted only 
one victory. This year's 
record was an impressive 16-

Books incite 

by Verne Myers 


Controversy in the news is 
not so far away as one might 
think, The contemporary 
Man book series, subject of 
much violence and debate, 
may be found here at 
Elmhurst and nearby 
■•jWhitko School Corporation. 
The center of ail this 
national attention is 
whether or not these books 
contain profanity, anti- 
religious material, and 
genera] literature "unfit" 
for us, the students. These 
books have not, as yet, 
stirred such violence and 
protest here as they have in 
Charleston, West Virginia; 
and in the Whitko School 

If you have read these 
books, however, you might 
wonder what all the fuss is 
about. Indeed. their 
language and content seem 
hardly severe enough to 
provoke mass picketing, 
large scale . strikes, 
shootings, and /or 
dynamiting and firebombing 

Most students seem to 
think "so what?" about the 
material found in these 

books. More profanity and 
radicalism are found in daily 
television on the hour, by 
the hour, every hour. Most 
students have read or heard 
twice as bad at home, on the 
streets, or on the news. In 
addition, the Man book 
series is supervised by a 
teacher for the students. 

Another question is 
student voice on the issue, 
which seems to say, "keep 

But, in presenting this 
material to younger 
students and those that are 
offended, however few, there 
may lie a problem. Also, in 
view of the storms of 
protest, right or wrong, 
compromise seems the only 

We suggest that the 
textbooks be retained for 
the older students in elective 
courses, and be available to 
others under supervised use, 
but not to require them. 
Such a compromise has been 
reached by the Whitko 
School Corporation, and it 
would seem the likely 
answer to please the parents 
and halt their unnecessarily 
violent protest. 

Readers discuss paper; abortion 


Among other comments, I 
heard someone say that the 
Advance devotes too much 
space to unimportant things 
such as the school play. In 
my opinion, after almost 
two months of hard work, 
the cast and crew of "My 
Three Angels" deserve a big 
spread in the paper. The 
school play is as relevant to 
Elmhurst students as 
Homecoming, and just as 
important! Homecoming, if 
you'll recall, had sections in 
two issues devoted to it. The 
school play is a big deal, and 
a big deal should be made of 

To the editor: 

Sitting in a class recently 
I heard many comments on 
the Advance, and almost 
none of them were favorable. 
This caused me to start 
thinking, "What should a 
high school newspaper have 
in it?" 

A school newspaper 
should consist of news, 
features, and editorials 
relevant to that school. 
These could include articles 
about school events, or 
articles pertaining to the 
interests of high school 
students today, such as 
abortion, marijuana, 
alcohol, etc. I do not expect 
an article on the hottest 
game in the NFL to appear 
in a high school newspaper! 
It wouldn't be of direct 
interest to the students. If 
the people complaining 
about the Advance would 
stop and read the articles 
again, they would see that 
ARTICLE in the newspaper 
is relevant to Ehnhurst 
High School students. The 
Advance is truly a paper "of 
the students, by the 
students, and for the 

All in all, I feel that the 
Elmhurst High School 
Advance is doing a terrific 
job covering the news, and 
my only hope is that they 
will keep up the good work. 

To the editor: 

I find myself, as many 
other students may, right in 
the middle. On the issue of 
abortion, I find it extremely 
hard to agree or disagree 

with either side of the 

We live in America. Thf 
land of the free, so why do 
some people want to let the 
government decide what a 
women does with her child? 
But on the other hand, as 
an American-to-be, the 
rights of the unborn child 
must be protected. 

Granted the pictures of 
abortions are not pleasant, 
but neither are the pictures 
of starving children -- or 
victims of child -beaters. 

To give a cut and dried 
yes or no answer is 
impossible. To permit the 
disposal of an innocent fetus 
is wrong: but to deny a 
woman the right to do what 
she wants to with her body 
is unconstitutional! 

Each individual must be 
granted the choice; both the 
mother and the child must 
be taken into consideration. 
Whether or not the pubhc 
agrees with the decision is 
not the mother "s problem. 

In this day and age of 
advanced birth control and 
family planning, abortion 
should not be necessary, but

Girls sports.. 

Mike's Side 

by Mike Landrigan 

Last year, girls 
participated in sports for the 
first time in Elmhurst 
history. The female teams 
sludged through losing 
seasons. They lacked 
experience, good equipment 
and a decent gym. 

This year the girls' 
volleyball team has used the 
boys' gym after school for 
practice. This leaves the 


U.S. 24 West 
432 -6m 

Complete Aufo 

boys' basketball team 
without any place to 
practice. Everyone realizes 
this was not a good situ- 

Former principal of 
Elmhurst High School 
Charles Eickhoff did not 
support the expansion of 
girls' sports during the last 
years of his tenure. He 
beUeved Elmhurst did not 
have the facilities to handle 
girls' athletics. During the 
72-73 season, all other 
FWCS high schools 
participated in female 
competition. Due to this, the 
seniors on Elmhurst's 
present teams gained no 
experience as sophomores. 

Facilities in poor shape 

The volleyball team was 
not in a position of total 
inexperience because several 
of the girls played on 
parochial school teams. The 
tennis and gymnastics 
teams, however, had no 
previous experience. 

The girls' gym is far too 
small for volleyball, 
gymnastics, or any other 
sport. All other schools in 
the system have good 
practice facilities in their 

physical ed departments. 

The gymnastics team has 
the poorest equipment. The 
moat needed piece of 
equipment is the uneven 
bars. Nearly every girl who 
uses them states they 
should be replaced. 

Student support needed 

One final obstacle in the 
girls' way is the lack of 
student support. People do 
not attend their events. To 
get the badly needed 
equipment, the teams need 
money. Unless they run 
special money-making 
campaigns, fans are the only 
means of support. Football 
and basketball have enough 
trouble supporting the other 
male sports. The addition of 
girls' sports would be too ; 
much of a load. 

For our female athletics to 
be real wirmers, the girls 
need school backing, more 
experience, new equipment 
and ... a new gym. Only 
student backing can be 
received quickly- 
Experience, equipment and 
a gym can only come with 
time. The girls have to 
remain patient and continue 
to give their best. 

Sludent interest, attendance in school actioities rises 

School spirit, believe it or 
not, appears to on the 
upsurge at Elmhurst. 
Despite repeated calls for 
more enthusiasm, the 
figures seem to indicate that 
EHS students do take an 
interest in the activities the 
school offers them. 

For example, at the recent 
Pops Concert, 500 people 
attended this year as 
compared to 300 the year 
before and only 200 the year 
before that -■ a definite 

The play this year also 
drew larger crowds. While 
600 people attended "My 
Three Angels," only 350 saw 
"The Effect of Gamma Rays 
on Man-In-the-Moon 
Marigolds" last year. 

And according to the 
office, records were even 
broken on Back to School 

So why all the hassle 
about enthusiasm? Well, 
unfortunately not all 
activities have been getthig 
this much response, but it 

does seem reassuring to 
know that interest is 
beginning to pick up. 

Hopefully this is a good 
sign that future activities at 

Elmhurst will not meet the 
same apathy that past 
events have. 

Many students agree that 
Fort Wayne is not the most

Volleyballers defeated in sectionals 
10-5, 13-15 by Homestead females 

by Karyn Heiney 

The Elmhurst volleyball 
team played then last game 
of the season Oct. 31 at 
Bishop Luers. It was then 
final game before sectionals, 
which were held Nov. 5-7 at 
Wayne High School. 

At the Luers-Dwenger 
match, the girls played 
excellent volleyball. But due 
to a bad start, combined 
with a bad break, they failed 
to beat Luers as time ran out 
with the score 10-12. 

The first game was rough, 
losing 1-15 to Luers. But the 
second game found new 
strength as Elmhurst rallied 
to win a 15-8 victory. Forced 
to play a third game, a 
scoring difficulty among the 
official scorers cost 
Elmhurst 2 points. As time 
ran out the Trojans saw 
those two points were what 
they needed as the match 
ended 10-12, Luers the 
Dwenger takes match 

That same night the 
volleyball team played 
Dwenger. After a close third 
game, the Trojan team was 
forced to face another 


The first game saw 
Elmhurst win handily, a 15- 
4 victory. But Dwenger 
came back fighting, winning 
the second game 15-10. The 
third game was agonizingly 
close but the Trojan girls 
just couldn't get it together 
and were defeated 13-15. 

EHS out of sectionals 

On Tuesday evening, 
Nov. 5. the Elmhurst team 
met Homestead at Wayne 
High School for sectional 
play. After two games, 
Elmhurst was eliminated 
from the competition. , 

The first match saw 
Wayne win over their 
opponent, HeriUge. Then 
Elmhurst went against 
Homestead only to lose the 
first game 10-15. The second 
game ended with Elmhurst 
on the short end of a 13-15 

When asked about their 
performance that night. 
Coach Cathy Russell stated, 
"They were mentally 
psyched up for the game but 
got rattled and lost 

confidence in each other." 
She added, "Then they 
stopped setting up but 
concentrated on defense 
instead of being 

aggressive." Finally she 
concluded that if the team 
had played as well against 
Homestead as they had 
against South Side and 
Luers, they'd have won.

Council in need of order 

Carney headlines new flick 

by Sarah Stewart 

In this day of fast-paced, usually 
violent adventure films, it's nice to 
know that there is a slower-moving, 
non-violent, and very entertaining 
adventure film. 

"Harry and Tonto" is such a film, 
and Art Carney's performance as 
the lead character, Harry, should 
win him his first Oscar. 

"Harry and Tonto" is the story of 
an elderly man and his cat, Tonto, 
who reside in New York City. When 
Harry is forcibly removed from his 
apartment, he and Tonto take an 
impromptu cross-country excursion. 
On the way across country, he 
picks up two hitchhikers, a guy and 
a girl. The girl stays with him most 
of the trip. He stops in to see an old 
sweetheart in Fort Wayne. Indiana. 
Later, he meets up with his faddish 
grandson, gets picked up by a high- 
class hooker, lands in jail in Las 
Vegas, and finally ends up in 

Some of the things that happen to 
Harry are a little far-fetched, but the 
character is so real he makes up for 

it. Besides, this movie was made 
that way for entertainment. It puts 
real people in situations everyone 
only dreams about. 

But "Harry and Tonto" is more 
than an entertaining movie; 
underneath there is a good long look 
at the life of the elderly. It's 
sometimes sentimentally sad, 
sometimes humorous, and always 
very touching. 

The supporting cast, which 
includes Harry's family, friends, 
and the people he meets on his trip, 
is a good one. The relationships are 
true and honest, especially the 
family's relationships. 

There are a lot of monologues in 
the film, but they never drag or 
become boring. Although there are 
some sad and painful parts in this 
movie, you leave the theatre feeling 
good. It is well worth the two hours 
spent viewing it, especially on a 
nothing-to-do Sunday afternoon 
when matinee prices are a dollar ; if 
you have time to see any, movie, 
see this one. 

Ever since the reinstatement of 
the student council at Elmhurst, its 
meetings have been spotted with 
turtaoil and confusion. Occasionally, 
when a controversial subject is 
presented, its merits are not 
discussed, but are argued and the 
members do not speak but shout. 
These disputes cause students to 
begin questioning the purpose and 
effectiveness of student council. 

Especially in the Fort Wayne 
Community School system, the 
effectiveness of student council 
depends primarily on the attitudes 
of the administration. Since the 
arrival of Mr. Horstmeyer, 
Elmhurst has been given many new 
and fair chances. The principal is 
wilhng to give us as much freedom 
as he can, without letting things get 
out of hand. In this atmosphere, 
student council has the power to 
initiate student interest, ideas and 
activities. Although Mr. 

Horstmeyer does have final say, he 
is open to suggestions and will 
consider everything fairly. 

There will always be limits. 
(Elmhurst will never have a 
smoking lounge unless the Fort 
Wayne Community Schools changes 
its policy.) But student council has 
another purpose besides 

representing the students in school 

policies and activities. Just as tht 
pubhcations department and Junior 
Achievement attract potential 
journalists and businessmen 
student council is a learning 
experience for those who ^ 
involved. It tutors students 
planning and organization, debtLt 
and compromise. At times the group 
may have a little trouble with its 
lesson. It may be difficult for the 
members to be comfortable using 
the concepts. But they are trying 
and they are learning. 

Perhaps one thing student council 
has learned is that parliamentarj' 
procedure, an old estabHshment 
custom, has its values and that at 
least many of its basic ideas can help 
conserve time and temper. With the 
application of some of "Roberts 
Rules", the organization can get 
back to its dances, bus rides, fund 
raisings, and penny arcade - al] 
programs for the students that the 
council is now concerned with. 

The Advaoce staff invites 
Btudeats and teachers to express 
their opinione on any subject

Herman and the entire team. 
They took a teKiu that was

only thing th^it held the 
Trojans back this season 
was the inexperience of 
many of the players at the 

beginning of the season. It 
was quite noticeable that as 
the team played more the 
better they became and the 
more the offense picked up. 

Ehnhurst won their last 
contest against Wayne 21-7,

spectacular catches in the

the most advanced of the

Yesterday, Elmhurst fans 
ha^ a chance to see the

teams in competition. Not 
much could be seen from the

because of the lack of real 
crowd support. So the first 
real chance to see the team 
play will be this Saturday. 

Of our male winter sports, 
wrestling seems to have the 
best attitude for an 
outstanding season. A city 
championship and sectional 
championship are easily 
within reach for Trojan 
wrestlers. There are many 
excellent returning 
wrestlers. When you add 
them to the fine reserve and 
sophomore matmen, the 
resulting team will have to 
be outstanding. 

Tough season for hardcourt 

The basketball team may 
have a tougher season. 
They'll lack height and 
experience but not potential. 
Along with our returning 
lettermen, sophomores will 
see plenty of action. 

Portage, one of our feeder 
schools, has sent many fine 
players who were not beaten 
once in three years of junior 
high play. The team will 
undergo a rebuilding year 
but Elmhurst will have 
outstanding teams in the 

The basketball coaches 
must keep the team 
disciplined, but with the 
ability to fast-break at every 
opportunity, taking 
advantage of their speed if 
they hope to have a good 

At the sports preview the 
other two winter sports 
didn't perform. The girls' 
sports don't begin until 
January, so they're just 
getting started. 

Girls sports face problems 

Girls' gymnastics will 
probably experience a year 
much like last season. Quite 
a few of the girls gained 
experience but all of the 
grace, coordination, proper 
techniques and routines 
can't be learned or gained in 
one year. Like any other 

sport, those who start at an 
early age have an 
advantage. Several of the 
girls have had other 
gymnastics experience in 
clubs outside of school, but 
don't be surprised if a 
sophomore is Elmhurst's 
best gymnast. 

New to Elmhurst is the 
girls' basketball team. All 

other schools in the FWCS 
system have had at least one 
year of girls' basketball. The 
Trojan team will lack badly 
needed experience. Because 
the girls have never played, 
a judgment on their ability 
to rebound, score and stay in 
games wouldn't be fair. 
However, continued practice 
in the inadequate girls' gym 

will hurt their record andtt; 
gymnastics record. 

The overall Trojan sporti 
scene for the winter ^^

Wrestlers will be tough aaj 
basketball will be able i( 
compete but lack oi 
experience will be the majoi 
problem for the girls' sport-

Miss Virginia lives Ciiristmas daily 

by Marty Miller 

As that time of the year 
approaches when people get the 
spark of Christmas spirit within 
themselves, there is a very special 
lady who somehow has the gift of 
giving and love throughout the 
entire year. But unfortunately, few 
people take notice of her and her 
services to those in need, except 
during the holiday season. 

This morning Elmhurst was 
introduced to this special lady. Miss 
Virginia Schrantz, during an 
assembley sponsored by Y-teens, as 
she accepted the donations collected 
by the club. Her program has been 
in Fort Wayne for 23 years, and this 
is Elmhursfs ninth year of service 
to her. 

Love and understanding 

Miss Virginia opens her home on 
Hanna St. 24 hours a day. seven 
days a week, to anyone who is 
hungry or cold, in need of clothing, 
or just wanting to talk to someone. 
She has no steady source of income, 
but depends upon charities, local 
organizations and generous 

Some people go to her house and 
stay for a few days or months until 
they are able to get back out on their 
own. They pay no rent, but receive 
so much during their stay- including 
much love and understanding. At 
present, four people live in the 
upstairs rooms of the home. In her 
years of service to the Fort Wayne 
area, a total of 75 people have been 
sheltered there. 

Inner-city residents know Miss 
Virginia well. She always finds her 
home quite busy during the day. 
People come to use the phone or to 
have things read to them. Illiteracy 
is much more common in the inner- 
city than most realize. 

A big pot of food is kept warm at 
all times for those who come for a 
warm meal. The money used to 


else, the heat and electricity is shut 
off whenever the bills are not paid. 

Miss Virginia was born here, grew 
up in Marion, and then returned to 
Fort Wayne as a registered nurse for 
20 years. She feels that this 
background was a good foundation 
for her present line of service to 
Spirit ufdly rich 

Miss Virginia's home is the center 
of many occurrences. For example 
one day the owner of a barber shop 
next door came over for change for a 
five dollar bill. While looking 

Some people in the past have 
come to Miss Virginia with the idea 
that she should charge a minimum 
price for the food and clothing that 
she "gives away". These people felt 
that this would restore some dignity 
within those who depend upon Miss 
Virginia's services. She felt 
differently though, and talking 
about the people she gives to, she 
explained. "Your pride is not taken 
away by accepting charity, but 
rather retained by those who give in 
their own special way. Love 
dignifies the giving away of things." 
Miss Virginia feels that the most 
important gain she has made 
through her experience in this 
service has been the privilege of 
serving those in need and the strong 
friendships acquired. 

buy all of this food comes from the through her purse, it became 
charities previously 

Paying bills is not any easy thing, 
but it is something that Miss 
Virginia is faced with constantly. 
She depends on the money that 
people give her. Just like anyone 

apparent that Miss Virginia didn't 
even have five dollars to give the 
man. She probably has less than 
most of us material wise, yet she is 
rich with the love that she has for 
others and that others have for her.

Groups Program participants receive 
extra counseling wiiile attending III 


The Groups Program, sponsored 
by Indiana University, helps 
minority students who would like 
to attend college but who might not 
otherwise have the chance, Four 
students from Elmhurst will be 
participating next year. 

Seniors Curtis Underwood, Pam 
Lflpsley, Reggie Hill, and Jeff 
Hayden expressed interest in the 
program and, after being 
interviewed, were chosen as 
Elmhurst's representatives, Mrs. 

Dinah Cashman and Mr. Waymoi 
Brown questioned the applicants. 

Must meet demands 

Some of the 13 seniors who first 
spoke to Mrs. Cashman lost 
interest because there are 
requirements that those who are 
selected must live up to. They must 
go to summer school after 
graduation and stay out of 
fraternities, sororities and athletics 
for their first year. The authorities 

sure the applicants are 
continuing their 

want to 

Groups Program participants, 
who include underprivileged whites 
as weU as member of ethnic groups, 
receive special counseling and 
testing to put them in appropriate 
classes and to point out their 
strengths and weaknesses so they 
can be worked on. They also get 
financial aid and live during 
summer school with the rest of the 

250 state members. Although the 
service is available to the students 
throughout their four years at 
college, nothing binds them after 
their freshman year. 

"Get it together" 

Other Fort Wayne Community 
Schools are involved. Some have 
more "slots" open to them than 
Elmhurst does, due to bigger 
student bodies and more interest in 
past years. For the last two years. 

Elmhurst has not sent anyone. 

The Groups Program demands a 
lot of time from its sponsors. There 
is plenty of paper work and 
information, Mrs. Cashman spent a 
few days during Teacher's 
Convention down in Btoomington 
learning about the program and 
how to handle it. She thinks the 
program is worth it. however, She 
says. "1 will spend twice as much

Campus Life presented probably the mos 
well received assembly this year to the EHS 
student body Friday. 

Under New Management, b group 
financialJy and promotionalJy sponsored by 
Campus Life and Youth for Christ, presented 
a 50 minute program. Musical selections 
included medleys from the September 1974 
top -10, Three Dog Night compositions and 
1950 rock, as well as several more foUcsy 
spirituals including "Oh Happy Day. " 

Happy family 

"It sounds really trite." admitted the 
group's keyboard artist Lynn Keesecker. 
"but we really are one big happy family. The 
only time we see our family is at Christmas - 
our whole life for a year is each other and the 
people we meet." 

The group played for several area schools 
throughout the week, and played a free 
concert at the LU.-P.U. Student Union 
Building for anyone interested in hearing 

more of their music or ministry. 

Each of the members claims that their 
main purpose in the high school assembly 
program is to entertain the students and 
explain the Campus Life program. For this 
reason they take out a year from their 
studies orjobs and go on tour. 

Although the group has only been together 
since August, they have performed about 
150 concerts. 

"Everybody enthusiastic" 

"The most unique thing about the 
Elmhurst assembly was that there seemed to 
be a greater black-white bond than at other 
schools. Sometimes different parts of the 
program seem to get through to a very 
specific part of the student body.*' 
philosophized Lynn, concluding. "At the 
Elmhurst concert it seemed as though 
almost everybody was enthusiastic about the 
whole concert." 


The AFS Penny Collection is stUl 
in full swing. The student body's 
generous donations have made this 
new project successful but the 
amount being collected is beginning 
to dwindle. 

The club, involved in foreign 
exchange, is half-way in the race to 
reach the goal needed to send a 
student of Elmhurst to another 
country and to receive a foreign 
student for next year 
Club sponsors paper drive 

On Feb. 22. the club will have its 
second paper drive for this school 
year. The club is hoping to do as well 
as the first one on Oct. 5. when they 
reached a total profit of $177.80. 

The areas they will be covermg 
are Westmoor, Indian Village and 
Wildwood Park. Those who would 
like to contribute but don't live in 
this area may bring their papers to 
the foreign language rooms on Feb. 

Faculty-TV game scheduled 

Also coming up in the near future 
is the "Faculty vs Television Team" 
basketball game. Some of the TV 
celebrities are Channel 21 s 
Christine Zak and Mack Berry and 
Channel 15's Steve Corona. Also 
included in the big evening is the 
faculty band and faculty cheer- 
leaders plus a surprise half-time. 

This event all takes place in 
Elmhurst's gym Friday, March 14. 

Club president Pat Prader stated 
"We really need a spirited crowd at 
this game. It's probably our biggest 
money making event of the year, so 
it has to be a success. ' ' 

AFS is also involved in some non- 
profit activities, beginning with the 
International Dinner which takes 
place March 4 in Elmhurst's 
cafeteria. The dinner involves not 
only foreign foods but also dances of 
other countries besides our own. The 
purpose of this dinner is to get the 
Elmhurst student acquainted with 
what AFS is generally all about. 

"Housing" week-end planned 

Beginning April 25 through 30, 
the Housing for a Week-end takes 
place. This is when the foreign 
exchange students from the 
northern part of Indiana will come 
to spend time in Fort Wayne. Any 
interested Ehnhurst students may 
have a foreign student at their 

The purpose of this weekend is to 
give the student a chance to 
experience another family life style 
and to see more of the state and 
meet new people. This is also an 
opportunity for any Elmhurst 
student to gain not only the cultural 
experience but to be involved in 
week-end activities planned for all 
the exchange students and their 
"brothers" or "sisters" from

The Christmas semi-formal dance 
jnay not have been successful 
nioneywise, but as student council 
president Derek Paris put it, "The 
student council wasn't worried 
gbout making money. We just 
wanted everyone to have a good 
tune. So I think it was a success. 

Because of the success of the 
jetni-formal, student council has 
planned a dance after the Snider 
basketball game, here, on Jan. 31. 
Tickets will go on sale Jan. 22, for 
one dollar. Snider has also been 
invited to join EHS students in the 
cafeteria, This dance will feature the 
Whispers, as did the Christmas 
fun planned for break 

Along with helping out with both 
Black History and Brotherhood 
weeks, the council will be 
sponsoring a Spring Break Day. On 
this day students will be dismissed 
from classes early to participate in 
outdoors activities, such as a water 
balloon toss, a football pass and 
Softball throw. 

A new secretary has taken office 
for the second semester. Sandy 
Demaree. who was elected last year, 
resigned her position so that she 
could devote more time to her 
classes. The new officer is Denise 

Money is no problem to the 
council this year. The Cash Box, 
which is council funded, receives 
$1000 a year for supplies and 
materials. The Cash Box then puts 
75 percent of its profit into a student 
council fund. 

The other 25 percent is 
transferred into a student aid fund. 
This fund supplies EHS clubs and 
organizations with money if they 
need it for a good reason. The fund 
also pays for many of the expenses 
of exchange students here. It 
provides them with a yearbook and 
newspaper subscription and pays 
for all sports tickets. 
City councils meet 

Each month a city-wide student 
council meeting is held at different 
schools around Fort Wayne. About 
five members attend each of these 

They provide for a time of sharing 
ideas and for organizing city-wide 
events. Snider is planning a Penny 
Arcade, similar to the one EHS had. 
Elmhurst will be having a booth at 
the Snider arcade. 

Derek also said, "Since student 
council is organized for the benefit 
of the students themselves, we feel 
that the students should have an 
active input in what the student 
council does. 

IOWA TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED to all EHS seniors on Jan. 13 The

WBGU-T^, Channel 39, Public was received very well. Fort Wayne 
Television. PBS ■ aU names for the could eventually set up a full pubLc 

new non-commercial programs 
Fort Wayne residents are now able 
to view. 

This does not mean Fort Wayne 
is the headquarters of a new 
station, only of a new transmitter, 
which telecasts the signals from 
WBGU-TV in Bowling Green. 
Ohio. This city receives it on 
Channel 39. 

Annual costs high 

As Wallace 

Fosnight who has 

been involved with 

PBS from its start 

in Fort Wayne, 

explained, the 

Iransmittonce of 

WBGU propramm- 

ing is a kind of a 

[rial situation. 

When Public 

Television was 

first' being 
discussed for Fort Woyne, the 
ideas was thot a full station would 
be set up here. However it was 
generally considered unfair and 
unwise to attempt to raise the large 
sum that would be involved with 
such a construction and the annual 
operating cost of '5300,000 before 
the community Icnew what to 
expect from the system, Mr. 
Fosnight commented that some 
local citizens might be 
disappointed in the quality of the 



television station. 

WBGU-TV has the facilities to 
film its own local programs just os 
Fort Wayne channels do local news 
and talk shows, but the station also 
has its choice of nationally 
telecasted programs through the 
Public Broadcasting System ( PBS] 
which is like NBC, CBS, and ABC, 

Commercials missing 

One of the biggest features of 
PBS is the lack of 
commercials. This 
• brings up the 

question of how 
the operation is 
financed. The 
funds for the 
transmitter. the 
Bowling Green 
station and the 
national system all 
have basically the 
same origins. The 
i contributed bv 


individuals, corporate grant: 

the government 



The channel offers classrbom 
instruction from 8:30 to •1:00 and 
later programs include theatrical 
productions. Black Perspective on 
the News, Book Beat, and 
Consumer Survival Kit, A full 
viewing schedule is printed in the 
local newspapers under local 

Trojan Singers entertain wide 
variety of audiences 

signal, but thot if the programming stations as WBGU-39. 

Every day after school, 
the Trojan Singers work at 
memorizing music to sing at 
various places. 

They are a select group of 
20, and must audition for 
positions in the soprano, 
alto, tenor, and bass 

Directed by Mr. Al 
Schmutz, the singers have 
given over 15 concerts this 
year, singing for Lions Club 
meetings, tennis banquets, 
women's clubs ■- almost 
anywhere. They have sung 
concerts at school as well. 
They participated in the 
NISBOVA contest thispast 

Songs vary 

The group sings a variety 
of things. In the jazz 
department there are 
arrangements by Anita 
Kerr, George Gershwin, and 
Burt Bacharach. Rockier 
pieces include the well 
known "Spinning Wheel ' * 
and a song from the musical 
"Jesus Christ Superstar." 
Also, a number that Barbra 
Streisand made popular, 
"What Are You Doing the 
Rest Of Your Life?" 

Included in their program 
are contemporary 
arrangements of music by 
Bach and Mozart. 

Before school started, the 
group went to a band camp 
in Kentucky with the 
marching band, and 
practiced all day for a week. 
The main purpose of this 
was to get through the time 
consuming process of 
learning the notes, so that 
by the time school started, 
they would be ready to work 
on the other musical aspects 
of the tunes, such as 
dynamics, phrases, diction, 
and tone quality.

lesson. With a group of 
friends along this trip 
proves to be very enjoyable. 
There are many smaller 
areas in Northern Indiana, 
Ohio, and Michigan that one 
could escape to for a 
weekend at a minimum 
expense, while for a longer 
period of time there are 
excellent areas in Northern 
Michigan and Wisconsin. 
These prove to be quite 
expensive but also 

Along with everything 
else, the price of skiing has 
gone up in Northern 
Michigan. Lift tickets for all 
day are now $10, and in 
Southern Michigan cost 
from three to five dollars. 

Cross country skiing is 
also gaining popularity. 
Many may think it's not as 
challenging or it's easier, 
when actually one seems to 
put more effort into one's 
work. Cross country is 
primarily done on gently 
rolling land and in a swift 
striding motion. Equipment 
also differs; the skis are 
very long and narrow, and 
boots are a shoe that ties. 

Cross country has a big 
advantage over down hill 
skiing if one has his own 

it's not uncommon to see 
someone in an open field or a 
golf course. Cross country 
may prove a little bit less 
expensive due to the fact 
that you don't need Uft 

A new "style" of skiing 
which proves fun is "Hot 
Dog" skiing. Its name 
almost tells you it's 
composed of flips, turns, 
tumbling of all sorts, and 
yes, even a baUet. This is a 
fun thing to learn with a 
group of friends. 

The atmosphere at ski 

everyone is tnere to ski anu 
they are all having a good 
time and happy. Most 
people will talk to you and 
ask you about your skiing or 
where you are from. 

Many Elmhurst students 
are already ski-buffs and 
have found the freedom, 
challenge, and excitement of 
thrill that skiing brings. But 
also many of the Elmhurst 
students who haven't 
discovered the beauty of 
skiing may feel the urge to 
try it.

EHS girls particip 

by Karyn Heiney 

The 1974-75 sports program at Elmhurst brought not' 
only some new faces, but also a few new sports as well. One 
of these ia the girls basketball team coached by Mrs. 

The team, consisting of two seniors, five juniors and ten 
sophomores, now sports a 0-3 record for the first third of 
their 9-game season. Although the girls have lost their first 
three games, Mrs. Doswell commented that they are 
improving all the time and that Elmhurst will have a win! 
before too long. 

The Trojans' first three losses came at the hands of 
Concordia, 17-50; Harding, 35-46; and Bishop Luers, 24-34. 
One of the main problems that Coach Doswell feels is 
keeping the team out of the winning column is the," 
inconsistency in the overall team scoring. 

At the start of the season the girls' basketball team was' 
just like a lot of the Trojan teams, inexperienced and young. 
^However, they are growing more confident as they play. 
With the help of student teacher Miss Diana Mankey 
from Ball State, Coach Doswell has held practices since 
November 18 and now says that though the gym they 
practice in is very inadequate, the team is starting to work 
on different base line plays and things should be looking up ' 
in the future.

9 OPEN EVENINGS TILL 9:00, SUNDAYS 1 2 00 TO 5:00 ^ 

On the eve of the release of their 
latest Edbum. "Red", rock legend 
Robert Fripp, guitarist in King 
Crimson, made an anDOuDcement. 
He said that King Crimson was now 
officially dissolved. To many people 
this was unexpected and 
disheartening news. Others 
accepted it as part of the never 
ending metamorphosis of King 

The news was surprising because 
King Crimson seemed to be very 
stable with a bright future. Sax 
players Mel Collins and Ian 
McDonald from the early King 
Crimson had recently rejoined the 
band on a permanent basis. Another 
reason the announcement was 
unexpected is because "Red" is a 
very good album. It is very 
powerful, in the tradition of King 
Crimson . Much of the music 
however is very similar to the last 
K.C. album. "Starless and Bible 
Black." Fripp realized the lack of 
progress (not in the tradition of 
King Crimson) and simply decided 
that it was over. 

Album holds up 

As expected, though , the album 
is good and very well performed. 
The first side holds the best materia! 

with "Red". "Fallen Angel", and 
"One More Red Nightmare." Collins 
and McDonald get in their Ucks or 
outstanding sax solos and good 
back-up. Robert Fripp plays well 
and, as always, with a lot of class. 
Bassist John Wetton and 
percussionist Bill Bruford have 
gotten very clos& musically since 
Bruford joined Crimson after 
leaving Yes in late 1972. 

The only real drawback of the 
album is the similarity. King 
Crimson has always been unique 
and their last three albums have all 
been very good, but unfortunately, 
they all have basically the same 
sound. The band seems to have 
fallen into a rut and had trouble 
getting out. 

King Crimson had too much 
talent to simply be written off as 
over. Fripp will probably pursue 
other musical interests for a while as 
he has in the past (a la Vander Graff, 
Eno, and Robin Trower) but his ties 
with King Crimson are strong. 
Don't be too surprised if there is a 
new King Crimson in the offing 
soon, but on the other hand, don't be 
too surprised if there isn't. 


e in winter sports 

lusde, toUow the gymnast from the low bar to the 
■ she mounts until she 

Ever since Olga Korbut startled the world at the 72 Olympics, women s 
gynmastics has enjoyed an upsurge in popularity. This holds true tor 
Elmhurst also, as the second year in competition for the girls' gymnastic 
team is about to begin. 

The team, coached by Mrs. Marty Burns, consists of seven seniors, five 
juniors, and six sophomores. It will hove four returning lettetmen this 
year They are seniors Cindy BradtmiUer, Denise Stein, Bonnie Carr.on, 
and junior Linda Smyser. These four will be backed by a much stronger ^ 
team than previously seen. 

There ore lour events in the area of gymnastics: The floor exercise. 
jneven parallel bars, vaulting, and balance beam. Floor routines combine 
dance, grace, and tumbling ability, putting it to music. The unevens, 
requiring the most 

high. She should have no definite stops once 

dismounts. Vaulting is when a girl does a specific maneuver over a 48 
high "horse," such as straddle, stoop, or handspring vault. Balance beam, 
the most dangerous of the four, is performed on a 4.inch piece of wood 
approximately three and a half feet from the floor. Height on leaps, 
suteness of execution of moves, and originality are what the judge looks 
for in the routine. 

A gymnast may compete in aU four events lor "aU around"), or she may 
Icompete in only one. A girl who goes aU around works doubly hard as 
iothers to complete aU tour routines perfectly. She has only the Sam.' 
amount of time as a girl who specializes in one event solely. 

Sophomore gymnast Katy Young comments that the team looks good, 
,speciaUy the seniors and a few others. "But," she said, "there needs to b< 
jmore dedication ~ gymnastics should be more of a serious business. " She, 
iwent on to say school support is almost nonexistent. "Then again, 
gymnastics is a baby at Elmhurst plus being a girls' sport. This affects 
how people view it," stated Katy, 

So women's gymnastics is on the upswing at Elmhurst. This year the <^^ 
team is looking forward to better things as they prepare for the upcommg 

The team's first meet is Jan. 23, at South Adams. Thek first home meet 
is Jan. 27, against Wayne. The team is hopeful for a much better season 
than last year's. Unfortunately, support from school, lack of money, and 
old equipment seriously affect this hope. 

...Genesis releases milestone' 



For those who follow Genesis, 
their new double-album "The Lamb 
Lies Down On Broadway" is 
somewhat of a milestone. Since their 
first album, five years ago, Genesis 
has continually sought artistry and 
perfection in all of their music. This. 
their seventh release, goes beyond 
all expectations and is by far one of 
the best albums of 1974. 

"The Lamb Lies Down On 
Broadway" is a concept album, 
similar to the Who's 

Quadrophenia" in format and 
story line. It is the story of Rael, a 
young New York City street punk, 
searching ( for himself? ) in and under 
the city. VocaHst Peter Gabriel 
If'ads the listener through the 
various bizarre happenings that 
'jefall Rael throughout the story. 
The music, however, is the most 
•outstanding trait of the album. 

Listener wafts away 
Only a few bands have the ability to 
let the listener get carried away in 
their music. Genesis has been doing 
this for a long time, most notably on 
their two previous albums, 
■'Foxtrot" and "Selling England by 
the Pound". Tony Bank's keyboards 
are the uniting force of this album. 
He has many intricate solos on 

piano and synthesizer but often he 
uses organ or mellotron to make 
very smooth transitions between 

Guitarist, Steve Hackett, is 
another dimension of Genesis. He 
uses many devices to change and 
add to the sound of his guitars. 
Often the effects he gets are 
mistaken for other instruments. 
Most important, though, is that the 
music flows. The band is very tight 
and it shows in both their style and 

"The Lamb Lies Down on 
Broadway" is strong'in all respects. 
The story is excellent and the music 
is fantastic. Genesis has done it 
again. As Peter Gabriel says, "It's 
only knock and knowall, but I like

Bowling occupies majority of Kevin Lee's time 

in roller skating and figure skating. 

FOR A PASTIME, a bowler for a hobby. 
works at a bowling alley and would like to 
become a professional bowler. 

At Smitty's Lanes, where junior Kevin Lee 
works, he does more than play the pinball 
machine; he howls. He not only bowls, but he 
bowls consistently in the 160-200 range. 
Kevin practices bowling to the tune of 35-40 
games a week. This often frustrating game 
has become a refined hobby of Kevin's and 
may become a career. 

Kevin usually bowls at Smitty's Lanes 
about 16 hours a week. At Smitty's he 
participates in two men's leagues 
maintaining a -170 .and 180 average, 
respectively. Last year he achieved a 158 
average in league play, 

Kevin's highest series (three games) was a 
675 which he estabUshed this Christmas 
vacation, He hos also chalked up an 
impressive 244 mark for a single game. Kevin 
pointed out, "As you can see, practice pays 
off ■■ 

Bowling starts young 

Kevin first began bowling at age nine, 
when he knocked over a total of 26 pins. He 
bowled his first 200 game at 12 and his first 
dOO series at 14. At 13 he and four others 
entered a VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) 
tournament at Dehnert's in the senior 
division. His team won it. Many 
tournaments offer money prizes. However. 
Kevin hasn't participated in these because 
this would make him ineligible for high 
school baseball. 

As a result, Kevin has restricted himself to 
participating in a variety of leagues. This is 
his first year in a men's league and his team 
won the first half of the Monday night 
championship. This year in league bowling he 
has rolled a 619 series. 

Kevin's outstanding scores are based on a 

conventional 4-step style. In this style the 
fingers are placed all the way in the holes. 
causing the ball to hook less than other 
styles. He throws more of a curve, which is 
different from a hook. A curve rolls down the 
right side of the alley then breaks into the 
pocket, whereas the hook is thrown from the 
left side of the alley, goes to the right side 
and then it breaks left into the pocket. 

He prefers spot bowUng which is the 
method of picking out an arrow on the lane 
and bowhng over it. He also finds it 
beneficial to bowl at different alleys, and 
says much con be learned by observing 
professional bowlers. When asked how far he 
plans to go in bowling, Kevin replied, "I 
would like to make a career out of it. ■ 

Kevin uses a 14'/i pound ball, a Brunswick 
Black Beauty. He suggests that a person 
should obtain a good ball such as a 
Brunswick, Ebonite, or AMF and have it 

drilled properly in a pro shop. The ball should 
not be too light; if anything it should be 
slightly heavy. Otherwise, the ball might be 
thrown too hard. 

Spot bowling preferred 

Kevin recommends spot bowUng for 
beginners, using 4 steps. Standing at the end 
of the alley is not recommended, but instead, 
the bowler should be about '.-i the distance 
from the foul line to the end of the aUey. Also, 
swinging the ball above the shoulders can 
lead to serious control problems as well as 
embarrassment if the ball is dropped on the 
backswing. The follow through should end 
with the hand about eye level. 

As a lesson to those who allow themselves 
to put holes in restroom walls with their fists 
as one man recently did at Smitty's, Kevin 
said that one should "control himself while 
bowling because it can become fnistroting." 

Howard, Campbell are Rotarians 

Senior Lyle Howard, as Junior Rotarian 
attended weekly Rotary club luncheons for 
the month of December. Taking over the 
position for the month of January is senior 

Dave Campbell. 

A k 

Dave Campbell 

"! really enjoyed last month's meetings", 
commented Lyle, who confessed he originally 
thought being selected Junior Rotarian was 
"littlemore than an ego trip. ' he now says he 
realized the point of the program. "I got to 
meet a lot of interesting people, and I really 
think I learned a lot of new things about our 
city through the speakers and the gentlemen 

Lyle expressed special enjoyment of the 
last meeting he attended where Mayor 
Lebamoff discussed many of his plans for the 
city's growth. AFS exchange student 
Corinne Bucher also attended this meeting 
and found it very informative. 

Dave will represent the school through the 
end of the month. 


Sophomore Trojans ihalk up win n ing s tart 

by Kevin Lee 

With the varsity and 
reserve teams showing them 
the winning way, the 
sophomore basketball team 
has compiled a 4-1 record. 
North Side, Northrop, 
Homestead, and Harding all 
fell to the Trojans, 

Portage, along with 
Kekionga, produced many 
basketball players for 
Ehnhurst this year. Portage 
boasted the ninth grade city 
champions last year while 
Kekionga had a good year 
too. Five sophomores made 
the varsity squad this year, 
with Ernie Starks as 
starting center. Curtis 
Paschall, Doug Peters. 
Brian Russell, and Mike 
Brewer will also play some 
reserve ball. In addition 
Brewer and Paschall have 

seen limited action in the 
sophomore games. 
Passes test 

The first test for the 
sophomores came from 
North Side with the Trojans 
coming away with a 44-35 
win. The Trojans then went 
on to beat Northrop, 36-28, 
before losing to the Generals 
of Wayne. 

At the end of the first 
quarter, Elmhurst and 
Wayne were tied but the 
second quarter saw Wayne 
pull away gradually. At the 
end of the third stanza, 
Wayne still held the lead 
with each team keeping the 
other in check. Elmhurst 
came surging back during 
the fourth quarter but could 
not top Wayne. At the end, 
the final score was 44-42 in 
favor of Wayne. 

Team of the future 

The sophomore team went 
on to post easy wins against 
Homestead and Harding, 
beating Harding 47-36 and 
killing Homestead 56-40. 
After last night's game at 
Concordia, the sophomore 
team has three games left 
including a rematch against 
Wayne. They are as follows: 
Wayne at Elmhurst, 5 p.m., 
Jan 6; Elmhurst at Snider, 5 
p.m., Jan. 9, South Side at 
Elmhurst, 5 p.m., Jan. 15. 

Following is the roster of the 
sophomore team: 


Cusfom Picfure Framing 

Height Weight 

Amos Belcher 5'9" 145 

TomBrower 5'7" 140 

Kenny Coker 5'6" 140

Dale Pine 5'10" 145 

JohnStiffler 5'10" 150 

Johnnie White 5'7" 160 

RonWhitson 6' 160 

As a team, the Trojans are 
shooting at a 36 per cent 
clip from the field while 
making 48 percent of their 
foul shots. Scoring leaders 

are Ron Whitson. 9.2 points 
per game, followed by 
Johnnie White and Kenny 
Coker. 7.2 and 5.8 points per 
game respectively. Whitson 
has played 18 quarters out 
of a possible 20 while White 
and Coker have played 
about half as much since 
they play reserve ball also. 

With five sophomores on 
the varsity now and three 
others playing reserve ball. 
Elmhurst appears to be a 
team of the future. And that 
future may come sooner 
than some people expect.

Russo participates in si<ating contests 

"I was happy to place 

For some students a trip to the 
Roller Dome or an afternoon of ice 
skating is simply time filling 
enjoyment -■ but to junior Jon 
Russo, skating means a lot more. 

When Jon was 7 years old, he and 
his family lived in California. "I saw 
my older cousin skate so I just 
decided to skate." Jon recalled. At 
this time Jon was roller skating. 

Later in his skating career, when 
Jon was 12 years old, he took first 

On the ice, junior Jc 

i Russo strikes 

place in the Southwest Pacific 
Regional Championship, which 
includes participants from the 
California, Nevada, and Arizona 

From that championship, he went 
to national competition in the 
juvenile boy's figure skating. Out of 
all the participants from different 
areas in the United States, Jon 
placed 18th. 

In 1971, Jon reached the national 
level once again, this time in the 
men's figure skating event. 
Capturing second place, Russo 
succeeded in defeating thirty other 
regional winners. 

Ice more appealing 

After moving to Fort Wayne, and 
after a time of decision, Jon decided 
to change from roller skating to ice 

"I switched to ice because I think - 
there is more recognition." Jon 
illustrated this by saying, "Ice 
skating has been an Olympic event 
for some time, whereas roller 
skating was just recently accepted 
for the Olympics." 

After his change from hard wood 

to ice, Jon reflected on some of the 

, differences. "On the ice there is a lot 

nore flow, you can express more 

feeling and emotion, you simply 

have more fluency.* 

To attain the fluency and 
experience needed to become a 
competitive ice skater, Jon has 
spent his last three months 
practicing as a '•beginner." 
"Practice usually starts at 3; we do 
figure skating for about two hours, 
free-style skating for an hour, and 
then an hour of dance practice, all 
together being about four hours of 
practice per day." 

Jon belongs to the Fort Wayne 
Ice Skating Club that practices at 
the McMillen Ice Rink. 
Places fifth in meet 

The weekend of Dec. 8, Jon and 
the rest of the ice team competed in 
Lansing. Michigan in the Great 

Lalires Regional Ice Skating 

Tournament. Jon placed 5th in his 


■"I was happy to place in my first 
ice tournament," stated Jon, "but I 
was upset because the guy that won 
first place fell on his jumps." 

As every aspiring athlete has a 
dream, Jon hopes to someday 
compete in the Olympics. 

"I went to the World Ice Skating 
Meet to watch." Jon remembered, 
"talked to the different world teams, 
some even showed me some 
different skating techniques ■■ I 
went to learn and that really made 
me decide ice is forme."

EHS Trojan grapplers ]'2 


by Mike Freygang 

Although the Elmhurst 
wrestling team receives 
about the least publicity at 
Elmhurst, it usually turns 
out to be one of the most 
successful sports. Thif 
year's team consists of nine 
seniors, eight juniors, and 17 
rookies, Lettermen 
retioming to the team are 
'seniors Chuck Parent, Terry 
Emmons, Tim Freeman, Jim 
Norton, and Dave Boyer. 

So far, the varsity team 
has wrestled for a 2-2 record. 
Head Coach Jim Welborn 
stated that the team is 
"bigger than last year." and 
that the schedule is "the 
toughest around". 

The school support that 
wrestling receives is not all 
that good. Coach Welborn 
explained that last year 
there were 800 fans 
attending the wrestling 
match at Wayne, but this 
year's number has dwindled 
to approximately 250. 

The two varsity setbacks, 
to South Side 33-24 and to 
Concordia 29-26, were 
redeemed by the Trojan 
trouncing of Norwell 54-8 
and Wayne 36-30. According 
to Coach Welborn, this 

year's team has more 
potential than any in the 
past seven years he has been 
coaching here at Elmhurst. 

The job of coaching is not 
left to Mr. Welborn alone; 
he is assisted by Mr. Jim 
Lambert, and Mr. Bob 
Horn, both coaching for 

their second year. 

The team has practiced 
every day except Sunday 
since Oct. 15, and will be 
practicing over Christmas 
vacation. The team has 
received a new building, new 
mat and new uniforms for 
the year's season. 

Sfudent Council reviews 

Team solicits support 

by Derek Paris 
ftnd Mike Arnold 

This year the Elmhurst 
Student Council set its 
major goals on making the 
1)97d-75 year a memorable 
and enjoyable one for all 
students in the school. And 
in order to do this, the 
council should sponsor 
activities which will bring 
the whole school together. 

So far this year, we feel we 
have enjoyed moderate 
success as far as getting 
students to participate in 
student council sponsored 
activities is concerned. We 
feel that this year's 
Homecoming Parade was 
successful for the second 
time, that the Penny Arcade 
was a large hit, and that the 
semi -formal Christmas 
dance was also well received. 
But there is still a lot of 
room for improvement in 
participation. We realize 
that this is probably due to 
the fact that in the past 
Student Council activities 
have not been for everyone 
who wants to come, but 
rather for the same group of 
people who organized the 
activities. And this image 
may be a little tough to get 

rid of, but we are trying to 
make our activities for 
everyone. If anyone feels 
there is something that the 
student council could do for 
the people of the school you 
are welcome to talk to any 
student council member 
any time. We would be more 
than happy to discuss any 
activities with you. 

We feel that this year will 
leave quite a bit for future 
Student Councils to work 
with. We hope that the 
activities we have started 
will become traditional to 
Elmhurst and they will 
become increasingly more 
profitable and enjoyable to 
both the students and 
faculty as the tradition 

With the continued help 
of the administration and 
school body we would Uke to 
continue to have activities 
which all of Elmhurst will 
enjoy. Some of our planned 
activities for the rest of this 
year are more dances if we 
can find good groups, more 
entertaining assembUes. a 
Spring Break Fun Day and 
whatever else we can do to 
promote school spirit. 

To the Editor: 

I would like to take this 
opportunity to ask a very 
special favor of the EHS 
student body. I am only a 
part of the girl's basketball 
team but I think I am 
speaking for the entire team 
in this letter. 

On Jan. 23, Thursday 
evening, at approximately 
7:30. the Girl's Basketball 
team will take on the team 
from Bishop Luers In the 
EHS gym. Though we have 
had a disappointing season 
so far, the team has a very 
optimistic outlook towards 
the Luer'sgarae. 

The favor we would like to 
ask the student body is 
simply this: please, we need 
your support. I can't think 
of anything that would be 
more inspiring than seeing 
true Elmhurst fans backing 
the girls to a victory. We are 
not asking you to travel to 
an away game, but simply to 
support us at our next home 

Thank you very much. 


To the Editor: 

I would like to express my 
views on "busy work." I 
beheve that some homework 
is definitely needed, but 
when teachers assign 
homework just to assign 
homework, this is 

unnecessary. There are 
many teachers at EHS that 
are guilty of this. Students 
who are active in 
extracurricular activities are 
hurt. Students who carry 
Dart-time jobs to help 
themselves financially 
are hurt. 

They are hurt because to 
do all the busy work 
teachers have assigned, and 
carry a job or activity at the 
same time, means giving up 
one or the other, or keeping

late hours and not getting 
enough sleep and being 
constantly tired. 

It also won't help school 
spirit, for no one wants to 
come to a game after being 
at school (even when they 
are not at "school".) This 
may not change any 
teachers, but at least it has

The Elmhurst Trojans 
captured their fourth 
straight victory last 
weekend by crushing Bishop 
Dwenger 77-64 and 
defeating Norwell 91-88 in 
the second overtime. 

The Trojans' victory over 
Dwenger boosted the 
Ehnhurst SAC record to 2-0 
and put them in a tie for the 
conference lead with Snider 

and North Side. 

The Trojans literally ran 
the Saints into the ground 
with the fast-break oriented 
offense and by the time the 
starters were pulled by 
Coach Eytcheson, the score 
was 71-45. Larry and 
Raymond Reese combined 
for 41 of Elmhurst's total 
points to lead the scoring for 
the Trojans.

Norwell for an attempt to 
boost their overall record to 
4-1. However things didn't 
seem too hopeful at the start 
of the game as the Knights 
could do no wrong and the 
Elmhurst offense couldn't 
seem to find the basket. 
Then the Elmhurst guards 
started to pop in some two 
pointers and the Trojans 
managed to keep with-in two 
points at 35-33 at halftime. 
The game was close from the 
start of the second half on 
and it looked like the 
Trojans had it all wrapped 
up with a 3 point lead with 
just 6 seconds left to play in 
regulation when Norwell 
forward Jeff Foughty 
converted a 3-point play and 
sent the game into overtime. 

Victory id sight 

The Trojans had an 
apparent victory when an 
Elmhurst turn-over led to 
another last second shot by 
the Knights. However 3 of 
the 5 starters had fouled out 

of the game during the first 
overtime. The second 
overtime saw the Trojans 
fast-break style of play start 
to click and with just 
seconds remaming m the 
period, the Trojans left the

Norwell guards go down the 
court and score unhindered 
and run out the clock. 

The Trojans' next game 
will be with Northrop at the 
Bruins' gym this Friday.

New law "overprotects 

The "Family Educational Rights and 
Privacy Act of 1974" supposedly was 
enacted to solve the conflict over students 
rights regarding the personal files kept by 

No one can argue a law that protects, but 
I he "Family Educational Rights and Privacy 
Act of 1974" crosses the line between "just 
'ight"and "too much." 

Red Tape 

In simple words (if that can be achieved). 
(he act states that a student 18 or over has 
. nnCrol over his school file, and his teachers 
■jod parents need a written ship of permission 
10 see his file. He also has to sign a form 
giving the school permission to send a 
transcript of his grades to colleges and 
interested employers. If the student is under 
18 his parents have the control of his file. 
More than this, however, is the amount of 

red tape involved in the process of seeing 
files and sending transcripts. There are 30 
day waiting periods and 45 day waiting 
periods, forms to send, and even more to 
sign. The amount of time spent on all of this 
adds up to a significant Increase in man 
hours for the office staff - hours taken away 
from counseling. 

Isn't worth it 

The "Family Educational Rights and 
Privacy Act" does more for the minority 
than the majority. This legislation could very 
well convince most counselors that it just 
isn't worth it to write recommendations for 

Fortunately, though, the "Privacy Act" is 
being reviewed on the federal level and could 
very well be amended. Hopefully any 
amendments added would help get some of 
the red tape out, and help clarify the bill.

OPEN EVENINGS TILL 9:00, SUNDAYS 1 2:00 TO 5:00 ? 


by Mike LandrigfiD 

During the first quarter of the Luers 
game, Elmhurst played fantastic ball. The 
Trojans found the open man, rebounded and 
fast-breaked. They just out- hustled Luers. 

Keith Bradtmiller and Ernie Starks 
grabbed some big rebounds. Forward Dave 
Campbell came up with some big hoops, 
while the Reese brothers did a great job of 
hitting the open man or scoring the needed 

Elmhurst fans couldn't believe it! It was 
great. But could a Trojan team play that 
Way for the whole game? 
I^un and fun 

Almost everyone who has watched 
Elmhurst in the past realizes the offense is 
based on the run and fun-fast-break off of 
any rebound any time, anywhere, which is 
i-'^rt^at. The only problem was when a fast- 
lireak was impossible. What do you do then? 
I wo years ago the answer was to pass to 
Baylor. The guards weren't super shooters, 
^'Jget it to Don. 

Taylor was an outstanding shooter. 
Trojan backers got use to seeing him catch 
t^he pass, shoot, and swish two points. 
Everybody expected him to be the high 
scorer. Kevin Howell and Steve Ransom 
Would be in double figures, but Taylor was 
the guy to stop. 
Taking up slack 

Last year, the Reese brothers were the 
guards. Both Larry and Ray could shoot 

Mike's Side 

and after the first games everybody knew it. 
But Taylor was still the man to contain. 
Then about Christmas time, Taylor stopped 
hitting. Nobody understood it. Nobody 
believed it, especially Don. He continued to 
shoot. ..and miss. 

The other Elmhurst starters, the Reeses, 
Bradtmiller and Howell were forced to take 
up the scoring slack. For the most part they 
did. But constantly during the games, the 
Trojans would build up a big lead, only to 
lose it and have to stop the opponent's last 
minute charge. 
Getting ulcers 

I had to pity Coach Ken Eytecheson. He 
must have' gotten an ulcer with all those 
close games. But he had to take some of the 
responsibility. If he would have disciplined 
the team better and had better control of the 
players, many of the close games could have 
been avoided. Time and time again 
Elmhurst lost the ball because of turnovers 
when the player lost control of his body. 

This year I had hoped the Trojans would 
make fewer errors. But during the first 
game, Elmhurst made the same old stupid 
mistakes. Several times, when play got 
ragged. Elmhurst would give up the ball. 

This year Elmhurst has enjoyed relatively 
balanced scoring. For one quarter of the 
Luers game they played good team ball. If 
the coach can keep the players under 
control, they will play together and we can 
have a great year.

Someone once said that no one ever lost 
money under-estimating the taste of the 
American public, and until the arrival of PBS, 
it seemed that television was one of the prime 
examples of that statement. 

Public Television has been broadcasting 
superior programming for more than ten years. 
While commercial networks were broadcasting 
soap operas and game shows. PBS was 
producing some top-rate educational 
programs. Instead of the usual detective 
shows, the System presented the tales of 
famous literary sleuths such as Lord Peter 
Whimsey, the creation of authoress Emma 

The advantages of PBS are enormous. It 
offers both cultural and academic exposure. Its 
cultural programming covers such events as 

major jazz concerts, ballets and operas, dance 
and symphonies, theatre and documentaries. 
Lectures and television classes are great aids 
to learning. 

As an added bonus. PBS lacks conunerciaJs. 
Along the same lines, PBS aims for a higher 
level of audience, and unlike other networks, 
does not assume that the average viewer has 
the mind of a 12 year old. 

Commercial networks have, of course, 
produced some outstanding shows, and 
certainly not everything on Public Television 
will be of interest to everyone. However, PBS 
is offering new and excellent opportunities to 
the Fort Wayne area. Hopefully people will 
become aware of what is being made available 
through the new station and take advantage of .

The Elmhurst wrestling team has a 4-4 record so far this 
year. One of the main reasons for this may be the lack of 
experience and injuries. The experience is building, but the 
injury list gets longer. 

Despite these injuries, however, there are some bright 
spots in the wrestlers' accounting. Senior Dave Boyer 
remains undefeated in regular season competition. And 
senior Tim Freeman has defeated a grappler who won in the 
Bloomington meet. (Bloomington has won most of the state 
championships in the past five years. ) 

The reserves remain undefeated with a record of 6-0-1. 
They have defeated every opponent except Northrop, whom 
they tied. The reserves will wrestle in the reserve 
tournament Jem. 25.

During the present school 
year, Elmhurst 's teams 
have been poorly covered by 
almost everybody. The 
major culprits are the 
newspapers and Channels 15 
and 33. 

In particular, sportscaster 
Pete Torrey (Channel 15) 
has done a good job of 
playing down the Trojans 
with words like "young, 
short, small, inexperienced, 
surprising," or any other 
adjective that portrays 
some sort of weakness. 

For those who don't watch 
his show, Torrey predicts 
who will win the high school 
games during the week. 
Continually he has foretold 
impending doom for the 
Trojans only to have to eat 

OPEN 7:00 A.M. 


his words later in the week. 
He usually starts with a 
statement something Uke, 
"The amazing Trojans did it 
again -- (he then pauses with 
a sheepish grin) they came 
through and sneaked by," 
and continues to tell of the 
Elmhurst victory. While 
telling about the game he 
may stress the fact that the 
top scorer for the opposition 
only hit one field goal during 
the first half but he won't 
give the Trojan defense any 

The newspapers were very 
kind to our football team but 
they don't seem to realize 
that the basketball team is 
for real. The papers have 
given North Side, Northrop, 
and Snider much bigger and 
better articles. Elmhurst 
deserves better. 

Channel 21 seems to be 
the only member of the 
media to respect the Trojan 
teams. This TV station has 
done a fine job of reporting 
Elmhurst games. 

It is time that Elmhurst 
gets recognition from

The Elmhurst varsity basketbaU team 
extended their winning streak to three 
games by defeating Valparaiso and South 
Side on Jan. 10 and II. 

The Trojans traveled to Valparaiso on 
Friday to meet a substantially taller team 
Vonsisting of players ranging from a 7 foot 
center to guards of 6-1 and 6-2. The Trojan 
fast break style of offense and stingy 
defense led to 40 Valparaiso turnovers and a 
final 78-67 Elmhurst victory. 

The following evening found the Trojans 
home facing the South Side Archers and 
capturing a 68-65 victory in front of rare 
near-capacity crowd. The game began with 
neither team being able to control the ball 
long enough to go down the court and score. 
Things started to pick up in the middle of 
the first quarter, however, with senior guard 
Raymond Reese putting a little consistency 
in the Trojan scoring with the rest of the 
team right behind. The Elmhurst team was 
apparently set to take a one point lead into 
the dressing room at half time, but a last 
second desperation shot from half court 
gave South the advantage. 

The second half started with the Trojan 
shooting not being too effective and both 
teams just pacing with each other as neither 
could build a substantial lead. It was not 
until the last few minutes of the game when 
senior Dave Campbell and sophomore Ernie 
Starks supphed the needed burst for the 
Trojan victory. 

The Elmhurst Trojans improved their 
overall record last weekend to 11-2 b\ 
defeating DeKalb. 87-81 on Friday and the 
previously 14th ranked team in the staU 
Anderson Indians. 79-74 on Saturday. 

The Trojans played DeKalb at th< 
Barons' own gym, which is a defimte 
handicap, and had to come back from a 13- 
polnt deficit to win. The Trojans were led by 
seniors Keith Bradtmiller and Raymond 
Reese, who both scored personal highs in the 

The big game for Elmhurst however came 
' on Saturday when the Trojans met 
Anderson. The game was close throughout 
the first half as neither team could build any 
kind of a lead. The score was tied at the first 
stop with both teams shooting very well. 
There was no real difference into the second 
period. Although Elmhurst did have a small 
lead, late in the half the Indians came back 
and Elmhurst led by only one at 37-36. 

Elmhurst started the second half hot and 
built up a small lead which they never lost, 
but could not put the game away until late 
and even then it was not 100% sure until the 
game was over, 

Ehnhurst took its biggest lead of the 
night with about 3 minutes to go in the 
game at 70-59, when Ray Reese took a pass 
from Dave Campbell for an easy two. The 
Anderson team didn't give up however, and 
cut the lead to 74-68. but Elmhurst kept its 
distance at the free-throw line hitting on 5 of 

23as the Trojans defeat fourteenth ranked Anderson 79-74. 

Sophs 7-2 

"Three points, two games 
lost" has been the 
sophomore basketball 
team's story this year. 
Earlier this season they 
were defeated by Wayne 44- 
42, a two point difference, 
while South beat them by 
one point, 41-40 in the 
season finale. These were 
the only setbacks for the 
tough sophomore team 
which compiled a 7-2 record. 

The lead volleyed back 
and fourth during the fourth 
quarter, but South hit a 
basket to take the lead for 
good. The game ended at 41-

YMCA holds mock legislature 

3 - News 

Elmhurst students, along with 
other Indiana high school students, 
are eligible for the YMCA Youth in 
Government program. 

This program enables students 
interested in government to 
reaUstically and meaningfully get 
involved in the legislative process of 
state government. 

The program has two parts. First 
is the Pre-legislative Assembly Feb. 
15 at Manchester College. This is to 
help students become more familiar 
with procedures and to give them 
information on where to get ideas 
and how to write legislative bills. 

Members of the General 
Assembly, along with people in 
areas such as law enforcement, 
health and welfare, highway safety, 
taxes and governmental operations, 
etc., assist them in the composition 
of these bills. 

The second and most important 
part of the program takes place May 
2, 3, and 4, at the State Capitol 
Building in Indianapolis. Here 
students participate in a legislative 

Everyone at the Model 
Legislature will submit a bill to the 
House and possifc'y to the Senate 
chambers of the state government. 
The bills the students enter will be 
of their own creation. 

Since the beginning of this 
program, in 1936, many of the bills 

which the students have proposed 
have been passed by the adult state 

Don Shepherd, who graduated 
from EHS last year, attended the 
program and submitted a bill that 
didn't make it. His bill was for the 
legalization of marijuana. 

Mr. Richard Mattix, who is in 
charge of the mock legislature, said, 
'■If anyone is interested in the

For the past several years, EHS 
administrator John Sinks has served as both 
a guidance counselor and a representative of 
the fourteenth district in the Indiana General

Again, after the 1974 election results, Mr. 
Sinks is spending another assembly session 
in the legislature. 

Each session Elmhurst faces a problem: 
Who will serve as junior guidance counselor 

forms ( 1040-A) wiU be discussed and 
students will be able to get help with 
individual tax problems. 

Business classes, some math and 
government and one home

was Mrs. Cashman; this year's selection is 
Mr. Joe Miller, 

"They were aware downtown that I was 
interested in administration; Mr. 
Horstmeyer knew, too," stated Mr. Miller, 
'"so Mr. Horstmeyer asked if I would like to 
fill in for Sinks ..." 

While Mr. Miller is working as guidance 
counselor, Mrs. Susan Boesch is taking over 
in the reading lab. 

Mr. Sinks will be in session until sometime

Instrumentalists extiibit talent locally 

by Sue Marquis 

Six members of the Concert Band 
recently participated in the tryouts 
held for all-state band at Columbia 
City Joint High School. 

Senior Linda Whitton tried out on 
E flat clarinet; juniors Diane Lupke, 

flute; Wes Byrne, clarinet; Verne 
Myers, clarinet; Doug Munk, 
trumpet; and sophomore Greg 
Livengood, trumpet. All played 
solos and sight-read before a judge. 

The purpose of the band is to give 
musicians from all over the state a 
chance to play with other good 


musicians. The band will get 
together early in the morning and 
practice all day Saturday and 
Sunday morning. Their only concert 
is on Sunday afternoon before a very 
large audience, 

"The band will probably be great 
and I think the tryouts are a good 
thing since they give everyone a 
chance to be in the band," 
commented sophomore Greg 

The results from the tryouts will 
be announced sometime in the 
following week.

\.m 1/egas \n^ memorable 

by Marilynn Scberer 

"One of the things that I will 
remember about the trip... was that 
Kojak (Telly Savalas) kissed Mr. 
Duff's wife." reminisced Mrs. Susan 
Anderson, assistant to .-he principal 
here at Elmhurst. 

Mrs. Anderson was speaking 
about her recent trip to Las Vegas, 
Nevada, to attend the National 
Association of Secondary School 
Principals convention. 
Accompanied by her husband, Mr. 
Flip Anderson, and Mr. and Mrs. 
Richard Horstmeyer. Mrs. 
Anderson's "vacation" was filled 
with several "memorable learning 

At the convention. such 
personalities as Terrencc Bell. Dan 
Rather (CBS News Correspondent), 
and George Gallup (of the Gallup 
Polls ) were among the featured 

"There were about 25 

administrators (along with their 
spouses) in attendance from the 
Fort Wayne area," said Mrs. 

This included Mr. Tom Duff, 
whose lucky wife won a kiss from 
the irresistible Telly Savalas. Mr. 
Duff is the assistant principal at 
Kekionga Junior High School. 

"Just before leaving the airport in 
Las Vegas," recalled Mrs. 
Anderson, "a man was playing a 
slot machine - he ended up winning 
approximately $60 in quarters. 

Mrs. Anderson was almost as 
lucky as that man - but no quite as 
profitable. She played a quarter slot 
machine for Mrs. Bonnie Gran, and 
won $5; Mr Dick Poor's nickel did 
almost as well, collecting $2. 

Unfortunately for this reporter, 
Mrs. Anderson's lucky streak did 
not last - and the machine ate my 
quarter. Which only goes to prove 
. hat the best don't always win.

Hairs ton to guest conduct 

5 - News 

All-city Honors Choir is an 
organization which meets several 
weeks a year to practice for one 
special performance. Members of 
this select group are chosen through 
try-outs from all choral groups in 
the FWCS senior highs. 

Every year a guest conductor is 
invited to come-and direct the group 
for its performance. This year, 
multi-talented composer Jester 
Hairston has agreed to fulfill the 

Hairston. who can be seen in 
cameo roles in the popular television 

series, "That's My Mamma," has 
written such songs as "Amen" and 
"Christmas Gift," the latter sung 
by the Elmhurst Chorale during the 
Christmas concert. 

In addition to the Honors Choir 
this year, there will be a 

performance by the massed choir, a 

combination of the performing 

concert choirs in the city. 

This year's concert is to be held at 

2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, in the 

Wayne High School auditorium. 

Pre-sale tickets, now being sold by 

choir members, are $1. 

Seuen faculty may tahe tx\\ 

Due to a reduction in projected 
fall enrollment, seven EHS faculty 
will be transferred to other Fort 
Wayne community schools. 

"Of course nothing is really 
certain," explained Principal 
Horstmeyer, referring to the usual 
last-minute switch-around which 
occurs in the fall faculty line up, 
"but at present it looks as though 
seven teachers will be transferred." 

Attributing the reduction in 
enrollment to various causes such as 
the lowered national population 
growth rate and a greater number of 
housing facihties in other Fort 
Wayne school districts (causing a 
migration of Fort Wayne residents 
to other areas), Mr. Horstmeyer 

explained the piuitiple 
necessity of the transfers. 

' 'The projected enrollment for 
September of 1974 was 1307 
students. Only 1223 actually started 
the year, enrollment now stands at 
1081 and projected enrollment for 
next year is 1150." By these 
standards, he explained, the 
downtown office requires the release 
of the calculated number of 

At the ratio of 25 students per

/* Senior Steve Morgan received a 
$50 United States Savings Bond for 
winning the district level of the 
American Legion Oratorical 
Contest. Steve is a member of the 
varsity debate team. He is the 
winner of three levels of debate: 
local or high school level, county 
level, and the fourth district level, 

"I will compete in the zone 
contest and if I win there. I'll go on 
to the state finals" added Steve. 

The topic for his speech was the 
American Constitution and our 

rights and responsibilities under the 
Constitution. "My speech discusses 
three major crises in our nation's 
history and the three constitutional 
provisions enabling our continued 
existence as a union," Steve 

In the zone contest, Steve is 
expected to give an extemporaneous 
speech. He will be given a topic and 
then five minutes in which to 
prepare. The topics are based on 
Articles of the Constitution and 
Amendments. There are six possible 
subjects that he could get. ^ ' 

EHS students chosen to travel abroad 

LesUe Raymer, Elmhurst senior, 
has been accepted and given 
guaranteed placement in the AFS 
International's American Abroad 
program, and will be spending 10 
weeks next summer in one of 50 
countries that will be decided upon 
later by the AFS organization. 

Senior Pat Prader also has been 
accepted, in her case to the school 
year AFS program, and will go 
abroad if a home can be found before 
July 15 in one of twenty countries 
that fit her personal needs. If Pat 
receives a guarenteed placement, 
she will then depart the latter part 
of next summer to spend between 11 
and 13 months in a northern 

hemisphere country, in reality she is 
one of many on a waiting list for 
homes to be located abroad. 

If this is made possible, Pat will 
be staying in a home situation with 
a "foreign family.'" Leslie, who is 
definitely going, will not 
neccessarily be living with a family 
or going to a school, but has other 
possibilities as to what situation she 
will be placed in. Not very often, but 
experimentally, applicants are 
placed with a group of students in a 
camp atmosphere. Several years ago 
a group similar to this participated 
in an archeological dig in Greece. 

Neither girl has been told to what 
country she will go but this could be 
learned as early as April or as late as 

mid-June by Leshe. and in Pat's 
case up to 2 weeks before the time 
she would be leaving. 

Often there is a misconception 
that Pat and Leslie were competing 
against each other. They weren't. It 
is also seldom that two people from 
the same school are granted 
placement in the first round of 

When asked how she felt about 
her acceptance Pat commented, 
"It's really exciting and was a shock 
that I had been chosen. I think the

gives people maybe their only 
chance to travel abroad and to learn 
about another culture and its

Last Monday. Jan. 27, marked 
the second anniversary of the 
signing of the Vietnam peace 
treaty. On several days this month 
and next. aU of the 562 returned 
American ex-POWs will celebrate 
the beginning of their third year 
home in the United States. 

Three years ago, there was 
probably not one American who 
was not aware of the POW MIA 
situation. It is somehow doubtful 
that those same "informed" 
Americans are aware that over 
1300 men are still not accounted 

Half truths 

One of the major provisions of 
the Vietnamese peace treaty was a 
complete release of all prisoners of 
war held in Southeast Asia, and a 
"list of all men held captive to be 
released upon signing the 
agreement." This list was given to 
us ... with several mistakes and 
untruths The major discrepancy in 
this inaccurate and incomplete list 
is the absence of the names of 53 
men who at one time were known to 
have been captured. These men. 
through news clips, photographs, 
or letters home have been proven 
beyond any reasonable doubt to 
have been held prisoner by the 
North Vietnamese at one time. 

Turning back the pages of 
history, we fmd a similar situation 

resulted from the Korean War 
treaty. Several of the confirmed 
POW's were not ever returned to 
U.S. soil. According to the State 
Department, the U.S. government 
is still negotiating with the North 
Koreans to obtain information on 
the fate of these men. 

"Who cares?" 

The futility of this situation is 
obvious - with the majority of the 
American public not being 
informed, or interested, it's almost 
inevitable that a "who cares" 
attitude will soon prevail. 

According to the provisions of 
the Geneva Convention, after the 
signing of the Vietnam peace 
treaty, some international, non- 
political organization should have 
been allowed to make a full 
inspection of all prison camps. This 
was not the case. 

Mentally and or physically 
broken men are very hkely still in 
Southeast Asia waiting, hoping to 
be released - hoping that someone 
"back home" is still working to 
secure their freedom. 

Status changed 

The entire list released by the 
North Vietnamese in January of 
1973 included 555 returning 
POW's, 30 returning civilians, as 
well as 55 servicemen and 13 
civilians who died in captivity. 

The status of the remaining men. 
in virtually every case, whether 

originally Prisoner of War or 
Missing in Action has been 
changed to PFOD, Presumptive 
Finding of Death- We must not let 
this be an admission of defeat! Of 
course we cannot, expect an 
account be made of every single 
missing soldier - but what about 
the 53 known, living POW's that 
were not even mentioned on the 
"complete" list given to us by the 
North Vietnamese? We owe it to 
those men and an unknown 
additional number to educate 
ourselves to the situation and make 
a point of learning their exact 

This is no longer a political issue! 
We must all understand the 
gravity of the situation and not 
repeat our mistakes which followed 
the Korean War. Morally; we 
cannot let the lives of these men 
remain a matter of question. We as 
Americans and as human beings 
must influence each other and our 
legislators to act now, before these 
men are totally forgotten

Anlibrum given 1st rating 

The 1973-74 Anlibrum has received a first 
place rating from the Columbia Scholastic 
Press Association. Out of 1000 possible 
points, the yearbook received 862, to earn the 
I rating. 

This book was rated in three categories: 
structure, theme and each individual section. 
Each book is rated on an individual basis. 
The people who critiqued the yearbook added 
constructive criticisms on how the book 
could be improved, and also mentioned 
things they liked in it. 

There are 14,617 yearbooks from across the 
nation rated each year. Yearbooks do not 

automatically receive a rating from the 
C.S.P.A. A school must pay S8.50 to have its 
book entered into the judging. 

Ten per cent of all first place winners 
qualify for the Medalist rating. This is given 
to yearbooks that show personality, spirit, or 
creative excellence, 

"We survived; I was proud of the kids," 
commented Mrs. Jane Hoylman, 
publications advisor. "They had to put up 
with a lot of obstacles. Money was a big 
problem. They had a low budget and still 
came out with a first place rating."

Senior Linda Whitton paced the Trojan 
solo speech team with a first place in girls' 
extemporaneous, and a third place in

Audiences need 

To the Editor; 

On Monday, Jan. 27, Elmhurst 
students had the pleasure of 
■■listening" to Cliff Cozzuli, in an 
assembly about the guitar. 

If Mr. Cozzuli's performance 
would have been better, (maybe he 
should have stuck to 
tnstrumentals), the students might 
have behaved better. But Mr. 
Cozzuli's performance was no 
excuse for the way the student body 

Personally, I was embarrassed for 
both Mr. Cozzuli, who was down 
there alone, and for the student 
body, who once again showed their 
knack for not acting like adults. 

The program was selected last 
year from a brochure sent to 
Elmhurst. It was a hit and miss 
attempt. Unfortunately this one 
missed, but it wasn't the first time 
Ehnhurst audiences have acted rude 
to people who have come here. 

These programs are supposed to 
end some of the monotony of the 
school day, by entertaining and at 
the same time being somewhat 
educational; however, if the 
students can't show some restraint 
these programs might be better off 
being cancelled. 

On the other hand, the 
administration could look into the 


progrEuns a Httle more carefully to 
be sure to get a program that 
interests and keeps the attention of 
the majority of the students. 

Rotorions: Con girls fill fhe role? 

To the Editor: 

As a senior here at Elmhurst I 
have been here to see a large change 
in Elmhurst. I feel most of the credit 
for Elmhurst's change goes to Mr. 
Horstmeyer. Whether Elmhurst 
students realize it or not Mr. 
Horstmeyer 's coming to Elmhurst 
has made a huge mark in Elmhurst 
history. Last year it was as if the 
school came alive, spirit sparked 
every student. '73 grads were 
surprised to see his spirit. 

In our pep session a few weeks 
ago, Mr. Horstmeyer spoke on 
school spirit. This topic seemed to 
be a Httle worn out and hard to find 
something new to talk about, yet 
Mr. Horstmeyer came up with a new 
idea and did a good job of it. 

Many times a principal does so 
much for a school and receives no 
recognition for this good work. I am 
sure many other Elmhurst students 
are with me in support for Mr. 

Marie Zacher 

Once a month, each city high 
school chooses a member of the 
senior class to represent it as Junior 
Rotarian. But what is a Junior 
Rotarian? And for that matter, what 
is the Rotary Club? 

The Rotary Club is a civic-minded 
organization made up of Fort 
Wayne business and professional 
men. They sponsor a program which 
invites students to meet and eat 
lunch with them every Monday 
during the school year. These 
students are known as Student (or 
Junior) Rotarians, and are usually 
chosen by the principal, but in 
Elmhurst's case, Mr. William 
Geyer, dean of boys, handles the job 
of choosing each month's Rotarian. 

No girls allowed 

For close to twenty years, Mr, 
Geyer has been choosing the 
students to represent Elmhurst at 
these luncheons. And he, following 
the pattern of every other city high 
school, has never chosen a girl. 

The consensus over the years has 
been that a girl would feel out of 
place among 200 men. That is all 
well and good, but it is the opinion 
of men ■- not women. 

But now for the first time, the 
female of the species has broken 
through the previously all-male 

barrier and has been sent as Junior 
Rotarian. Two of the schools that 
have sent female representatives are 
South Side and Wayne. 

No objections 

The Junior Rotarian program 
offers high school students a chance 
to meet businessmen in a 
professional field that interests 
them, make business contacts which 
may lead to summer employment, 
and to see if they really like their 
chosen field. 

The Rotary Club has no 
objections to female Junior 
Rotarians. With all the changing 
views and roles, high school girls 
could benefit from this program 
also. Women are becoming more and 
more involved in business. 

The owner of Fort Wayne 
Newspapers, Inc., Helene Follinger, 
is a woman. She is also a member of 
the board of General Telephone of 
Indiana and has been named as one 
of the ten most powerful women in 

Elmhurst should be one of the 
schools that help bring on 
constructive change in Fort Wayne. 
By sending female representatives, 
Elmhurst could be helping its 
female students, the Rotary Club, 
and the future of Fort Wayne

The Elmhurst reserve wrestling team 
remains undefeated after trouncing 
Homestead 15-9. The reserve team is now 10-0- 
1 for the year. 

The team recently participated in the 
reserve tournament at North Side. In all there 
were eight teams participating, First place 
winners were sophomore Dave Kessel, 126 
pounds; sophomore Nelson Almond. 145; and 
senior Gary Imel, heavyweight. 

Mr. Jim Welbom, head wrestling coach, 
states. "The reserve team has good potential 
and has improved a lot." One factor that has 
played an important role in the reserves' 

success is the sophomores. Team standouts are 
Nelson Almond 11-0, Dan Heckley 9-1. Pat 
Patten 6-1. Dave Kessel 7-1, and Jeff Shifflett 
7-1. Jeff also placed first in the Elmhurst take- 
down tournament. 

Need wrestlers 

Coach Welbom stated also that the reserve 
team needs wrestlers in the weight class from 
98 to 1 19 pounds. This has turned out to be one 
of the main handicaps for this years team. 

Other wrestlers on the reserve team are as 
follows: Mike Darby, 119; Bruce Marks, 132; 
Dave Pressler, 138; Bill McCombs, 167; and 
TroiLee, 167. 

The reserves practice with the varsity in the 
new athletic building. This has definitely 
helped the reserves because they learn new 
holds and tips from the varsity men as well as 
Coaches Welborn, Horn, and Lambert. 
They will continue to practice until sectionals 
(Feb. 6-8). This also enables the varsity squad 
to have a variety of opponents to "practice" 

Keep in condition 

The reserve record of 10-0-1 comes close to a 
previous years high of 13-0. Approximately 
six reserves have seen varsity action and have 
come through fairly well. Reasons for the 
substitutions vary from the varsity man being 
overweight to one being injured. A large 
percentage of the reserves will become 
permanent varsity members next year. Until 
then, weight-lifting, dieting, and the summer 
P.E. course should keep the reserve squad in 
good condition

excluding transportation. Luckily. Mary has 
had help from several directions, which is 
gratefully accepted. She received S105 from a 
student aid fund, half of the tuition 
tee The other half is being supplied by her 
parents. In addition. Mary has gained the

Mary became interested in government on 
a 4-H Club trip last summer. caUed 
Citizenship Short Course. This was basically 
a tour of Washington. DC. and was not as 
extensive as her upcoming seminar. Mary 
remarked. "1 was interested in being

doesn't think she will actively pursue a 
political career. 

Mary was a page three years for Mr- John

The Elmhurst varsity 
grapplers tied Homestead 
27-27 on Jan. 28, making the 
Trojan record 5-5-1. 
According to Coach Jim 
Welborn, the team has 
improved greatly since the 
start of the season. Items to 
keep in mind are: l)Twenty 
different wrestlers have seen 
varsity action as compared 
to 13 on most teams; 21 
Injuries have kept approx- 
imately six wrestlers from 
completing the season ; 
3) Sickness has played its 
part also by keeping

Sectionals begin 

The Trojans will travel to 
New Haven tomorrow and 
Saturday to compete in 
sectionals. According to 
team members, the team 
goal at the beginning of the 
year was to win them. One of 
the most important things 
needed to win sectionals is 
to have individual sectional 
champions, which Elmhurst 
could have. Seniors Dave 
Beyer, Tim Freeman. Jim 
Norton and Terry Emmons 
evidently have the potential 

to win. as three of the four 
have won in the Carmel 
tournament. The other one 
placed fourth against stiff 
competition. Last year's 
sectional saw Elmhurst 
leading the first round, but 
Snider and Wayne ended up 
tying the second. 

"Best sport" 

Coach Welborn regards 
wrestling as, "By far the 
best sport."' Coach Welborn 
wrestled in high school and 
college, then came to 
Elmhurst to coach seven 
years ago. Since then he has 

helped Elmhurst turn out 
successful wrestles and 
successful wrestling teams. 
Some of the records set 
under Coach Welborn are: 
fastest pin, 11 seconds; 
most career pins. 29; career 
victories . 48 ; and highest 
finish at state, second. 

Assisting Mr. Welborn 
this year are Mr. Jim 
Lambert and Mr. Bob Horn, 
both of whom worked with 
him last year. Mr. Horn is 
also coaching at Kekionga 
Junior High in order to keep 
a steady flow of rookies 
coming in. 

Elmhurst senior Dave 
Boyer is one of two wrestlers 
in the city who still remain 

Dave has been wrestling 
since the ninth grade, and 
according to Coach 
Welborn, he has improved 
"a lot". 

Last year he came in third 
in sectionals. So far this year 
Dave has compiled a 13-0 
record. If his plans of going 
for an undefeated season 
and state championship 
come through, they would 
give him an overall record of 
23-0, just three wins short of 
the school record of 26-0.

introduction: entertainment: 


Monday l)egan a six da,v 
series of -^activities at 
Elmhurst in 
acknowledgement of Blaclt 
History Week. The 
background was set by 
posters and bulletin boards 
in the halls and 
announcements over the 
P.A. system. 

Afro-American Club 
members and other students 
worked to make the student 
body aware of Black History 
Week. Drawings of famous 
black people were made and 
hung to give information on 
the historical figures the 
week honors: Richard Allen, 
religious leader; Robert 
Abbott, journalist: Ira 
Aldridge, actor; Mary 
Bethune, educator; Scott 
Joplin, jazz composer and 
musician; and Charles 
Spaulding, business pioneer, 
were depicted on the 
cafeteria windows. 

The usually blank bulletin 
boards throughout the 
building took on color and 
meaning when dedicated to 
various subjects related to 
black history. There were 
tributes to Martin Luther 

King and Duke Ellington, 
collages of nationally known 
sports figures and models, 
and brief listings of 
accomplishments by black 
people of history such as 
Booker T. Washington, 
Marian Anderson, and Roy 

Elmhurst continued its 
education on black history 
every morning when a black 
figure in history was talked 
about over the P.A. 
Abolitionists Harriet 
Tubman and Frederick 
Douglass, inventor Lewis 
Latimer, and business 
executive Maggie Lena 
Walker were reported on 
during the week. 


HISTOR Y WEEK was in the social 
studies hall. 

History Week brought 
entertainment to 
Elmhurst during an 
hour-long morning 

The program began 
with a modern dance 
routine to the song 
"Mr, Bojangles" done 
by Andrea Williams. 

Then the group 
"Society" came on. For 
the first few pieces, the 
gym was nearly silent 
as the audience 
concentrated on 
listening. By about the 
fourth number "I Feel 
Sanctified", however, 
many of the black 
students on the floor 
stood up to dance. 
Eventually, during 
'"Skin Tight", they 
were joined by just as 
many white students. 
The dancing went on 
through the last 
number at the end of 
which a chant went up 
for more. 

Saturday - February 
22, the play, "In White 
America" will be 

presented in the 
Elmhurst gym. The 
production is being 
directed by Mr. Don 
Goss who also has a 
part in the play. The 
rest of the cast is made 
up of members of the 
community. Tom 
Schafer, Lee W. Butler 
Jr., Phillip 

Stubblefield, Patty 
Martone, Bernice Irby 
and Beth Miller form 
the remainder of the 
seven person team. 

The* play traces the 
black man's

n'EH THE PARTS during one of the 
ijy night practices. 

Tuesday Elmhurst opened its 
doors to black members of the 
community engaged in various 
professions. Nineteen of these 
people came in and spoke to 
classes during the first three 
periods of the day- 
Visiting art classes was Mr. 
Willie Welch, an artist in 
Magnavox's illustration 
department. In his specific field, 
Mr. Welch draws machinery for 
a government paid job. He has 
been offered different art- 
related positions, most of them 

Mr. Welch has been deeply 
interested in art since he was 
about 16 or 17, He went to a two- 
year commercial art school, but 
is basically a self-taught artist. 
Outside of his work, Mr. Welch 
paints approximately three 
hours a day and is now 
preparing for a possible one- 
man show in Fort Wayne. 

Beautician speaks 

Toting her suitcase filled with 
hairbrushes, combs, curlers, 
creams and rinses, Ms. Linda 
Davis came before a group of 
girls from Mr. Robert Horn's, 
Mrs. Roma Jean Bradburn's, 
Miss Sharon Dietrich's, and 
Mrs, Susan Owen's classes. Ms. 
Davis is a beautician with the 

Redwood Salon and answered 
questions on hair care, from 
split ends to home permanents. 

Junior Holly Greeno, a 
member of the audience, 
volunteered to have her hair 
styled. Ms. Davis decided to do 
a cut. She stuck to the same 
basic style but shortened the 
length a bit, thinned the hair, 
and gave Holly bangs. Holly 
commented later. "I like it. It's 
all right." 
Ms. Walker talks to journalists 

Ms. Fran Walker, from 
television station WPTA, gave 
some of her time to journaUsm 
students. She told about her 
past jobs and the work she is 
now doing. Ms. Walker 
described her involvement in 
television as accidental. 

She started out as just a 
receptionist and then 

progressed through different 
local television jobs. She at one 
time did five minute spots on 
■'Community Calendar ' and 
then co-hosted a show with 
Dann Nolan. From there, she 
got her own program, "The 
Fran Walker Show". She has 
been branching out into 
reporting and has done a five 
part feature on unsolved crimes 

in the inner city concerning 
child molesting and murder. She 
enjoys doing features and would 
like to do another five-part on 


Many other subjects and 
careers were touched upon 
during the seminars Tuesday. 

/ editorial: 

Going by the attitudes 
expressed by some 
Elmhurst students in 
regard to Black History 
Week, the reason behind 
its establishment has 
either been lost or 

Since, until recently, 
most history books and 
history classes have been 
oriented toward white 
America's development. 

a need to

on black 
the United 

there was 
history in 

So the idea behind 
Black History Week is to 
educate-to educate both 
blacks and whites. 
Organizations such as the 
Afro-American Club take 
the initiative in 

scheduling activities for 

Black History Week, not 
a? a social event for 
themselves, but as 
something for all 
students to participate in. 
And there is some white 
involvement from a very 
few student volunteers, 
members of the 

administration, and 
student council officers. 

Career day brought in 
speakers representing 
careers that any student 
might be interested in. 
They talked to classes 
made up of blacks and 
whites. This was certainly 
a good effort to get whites 
involved. Hopefully 
they ve accepted it as 
such and will go beyond 
accepting and open 
themselves up to learning 
about the history and 
backgrounds of races 
other than their own 

giues warning 

Did you ever wonder what would 
happen if there ever were to be an 
emergency in or around Elmhurst 
High School? How would anyone 
know if a tornado was in the area? 

The answer lies in a little box-like 
object behind Mr. Douglass 
Spencer's desk. This machine is kept 
running to receive any signals sent 
from a central office. The signal 
would inform the listener of any 
danger - from a tornado to a broken 
water main. It doesn't come through 
in code, but in English, and it only 
takes a few seconds to receive. 

After the signal is received, one of 
several things might take place. If 
there is enough time, the buses 
would be dispatched and students 
would be sent home. 

If there isn't enough time, 
students and faculty would be 
directed to the 'tunnels' under the 
building. In these basement 
■corridors exist emergency supplies 
to last for many days. Included are 
Candy bars, blankets, water, dried 
biscuits, dried foods, and first aid 
''its. Of course, if the disaster were 
to keep people underground for a 
gi'eat amount of time, these supplies 
"'ould be rationed according to the

What do you suppose 
$285,000 would buy you 
today? A child's sandbox ... 
a shopping spree for 3 whole 
bags of groceries ... or 
maybe a place in former 
President Nixon's heart? 

Though these are all 
timely answers, in 1931, 
good ol' Elmhurst High was 
built for $285,000 (less 
interest and tax, of course). 

Forty-four years ago, 
Elmhurst High School 
became both a reality and 
the alma mater for 28 
seniors. A total of 11 
teachers and one principal 
were hired to work in the 
building which housed 10 
classrooms and what is 
today the girls' gym. 

The original building was 
quite small; it included the 
southeast portion of the 
present structure, rooms 
101-106 and upstairs rooms 
202-212. Lunches were 
served through a window, 
where the recognition case 
now stands. Prices for such 
items as soup, sandwiches or 
pie ran at 5 cents apiece. 
Elmhurst boasts two teams 

Even as a new school, 
Ehnhurst offered all of the 
courses and extra-curricular 

activities that were common 
to schools at that time. 
Basketball was the only 
inter scholastic varsity sport 
- EHS had both a boys' and 
a girls' team. 

Because the small gym 
(now upstairs girls') was too 
small to accommodate for 
regulation games, Elmhurst 
used the gym at Central 
High School. 

The girls' team, at that 
time, played the prelirairdry 
games. The price of tickets 
for interscholastic sport was 
25 cents for adults, and 15 
cents for students. The price 
for student tickets today 
has only moved one decimal 
point to the right. 
Growth begins 

In 1941, Ehnhurst added 
eight classrooms, a kitchen, 
and a dining room. This 
addition was to 

accommodate the rapid 
growth in the student 

The plans for Elmhurst 
included a gym - larger than 
that of North Side. 
Unfortunately the ideas for 
the gym were canceled by 
the federal government ; 
World War II began 
simultaneously . 

In 1957, a major addition 
gave Elmhurst new shop "■ 




facilities, a band room, three 
new classrooms, an office 
suite, and a modern 

Before this addition, the 
band practiced in rooms 228 
and 230, the shop room had 
been what is now the 
Journalism room, and Mr. 
Horstmeyer's present office 
was at one time a record 
keeping room. -r I 

Approximately where the ' ' ' ^ 
study hall is now (room 166) 
was at one time the location 
for dirt termis courts. . .

Football came to 
Elmhurst in 1957; the 
team's first coach was Mr. 
Eldon Stoops. The coach for 
the basketball team, before 
Mr. Ken Eytcheson, was 
Mr. BUI Geyer.

Fine Arts Festiual returns 


The Fort Wayne Fine Arts 
Festival, which disappeared last 
year to make way for the dedication 
ceremonies of the Performing Arts 
Center, is back again this year. 
Scheduled for Memorial Day Week, 
the program promises many 
opportunities for cultural exposure 
in the area. 

Along with the concerts, plays, 
exhibits and children's activities 
that have been presented in the 
past, this year a special two-day 
writer's workshop will be presented. 
Another change is the location of the 
Festival, which will be downtown in 
Freimann Square and the 
Performing Arts Center. Franke

Haggard joins Long Rifles 

"Laws like the gun control, if 
passed, would simply end our club 
all together," stated sophomore 
Kerry Haggard. Kerry's family, 
along with approximately fifty other 
families, belong to a club-like group 
called the Kekionga Long Rifles. 

The Long Rifles meet the first 
Saturday of every month at the 
Broadway Christian Church in Fort 
Wayne. The club's main purpose for 
its members is "hobby or 
enjoyment," but for an interested 
public, the club provides a lot more. 

Give demonstrations 
"We spend some of our time 
giving demonstrations for the 
public, like the Girl Scouts, or the 
Boy Scouts : recently we held a 
demonstration out at Southtown 
Mall," Kerry explained. 

The ari oup demonstrates the art of 
shooting rifles, mostly muzzle rifles, 
using black powder onlv. The 
members shoot the different types 
of guns at targets usually 100 yards 
away: targets range from paper to 
the typical pigeon targets. 

Dad is President 
"My dad has been in this club for 
about seven years; now he is 

president " said Kerry, "that, 

plus my interest in guns, is how I 

got involved with this club." 

On an average, each member of 
the club practices shooting about 
once a week; those members under 
18 years of age must have signed 
permission slips from their parents. 
Anyone with a particular interest 
in the shoo^mg of guns, who would 
be interested in joining the 
Kekionga Long Rifles, can contact 
Kerry any time during school.

Aptitude tests 
strengths and 

Every year a large number of 
young people leave behind them 12 
years of education, only to find out 
they really don't know where they're 
going. Many, perhaps, are finding 
that if they had learned something 
about their strengths in high school, 
leaving the institutional shelter 
wouldn't have been so difficult. 

Learning one's strengths and 
weaknesses can be an important 
factor in finding success, and 
educating high school students to 
those points is the idea behind a 
special testing program offered by 
the Fort Wayne Community 
Schools. The tests, given 
individually, are designed to give a 
better understanding of a person's 
abilities and to help guide him after 
he has discovered them. 

Takiog the W AIS 

The test most frequently given is 
the WAIS (Weschler Adult 
Intelligence Scale). This is an IQ 
test and must be given by a trained 
psychologist. The test is 
administered at Elmhurst by Mr. 
John Walmsley, who is a firm 
believer in the program. The WAIS 
is divided into two sections: verbal 
and performance. Each section is 
broken down into several sub-tests: 

point out 

the verbal includes a memory 
section, an arithmetic section, 
vocabulary, and others, while the 
performance involves such things as 
puzzles, block arrangement, 
drawing, and copying digit symbols. 
The WAIS lasts about two hours 
and is only given on Tuesdays, 
which is the day Mr. Walmsley is at 
Elmhurst. The only requirement for 
taking it is to have a parental 
permission slip which must be 
signed to comply with the school 
record privacy act. 

Finding interests 

A second offering is the WRIOT 
(Wide Range Interest Orientation 
Test). The WRIOT differs from the 
WAIS in that most questions are 
related to interests, rather than to 
intelligence. The WRIOT also 
specifies professions which a 
student, although he might not have 
a strength in, might be happy in. 
The questions on this test generally 
follow the pattern of "Which of the 
following would you most like or not 
like to do?" 

These tests are available through 
the guidance department. Students 
wishing to know more about them 
should contact the counselors. 
Perhaps taking either of them could 
make the future a little brighter. 

Two seniors get scholarship

Kevin Young Mike Arnold 

A little hard work never hurt 
anybody, right? Apparently, a lot of 
hard work hasn't either, in the case 
of two Elmhurst seniors. Mike 
Arnold and Kevin Young, and 
Mike's older sister Pam Arnold. 
Each has earned an Evans caddy 
scholarship to Purdue University, 
establishing a national first. 

When the decision was finally 
made official. Mike and Pam became 
the first brother-sister team to 
receive caddy scholarships in the 
nation. In addition, Pam is the first 
female in Indiana to receive the 
award. They are entitled to a four- 
year S4000 scholarship if they make 
good grades. 

Must meet requirements 

In applying for the scholarship, 
the applicant must be a caddy for 
two years, place in the upper 25 per 
cent of his or her class, and score 
well on the College Standard 
Aptitude Test. Also, the applicant 
must be in a certain family financial 
income bracket, and must have 
recommendations from the club's 
caddy committee chairman, caddy 

supervisor, golf pro and club 

Interviews were conducted by the 
Indiana Golf Association in 
Indianapolis last week for the final 
"judgement." Though not 
establishing any precedents, Kevin 
Young also earned the scholarship. 
He caddied at the Fort Wayne 
Country Club for two years. He has 
been outstanding in audio-visual 
work, band programs, contests. Boy 
Scouts, and in his church youth 
group. At Purdue he plans to major 
in electrical engineering. 

Keep totin'! 

Mike Arnold toted bags for five 
years at the Fort Wayne Country 
Club. He is now vice president of the 
EHS student body, newspaper 
editor, and is on the varsity golf 
team. He plans to study industrial 
management at Purdue. 

Pam Arnold, who graduated last 
year from Elmhurst, is now working 
her way through Purdue, and hopes 
to attain a pre-med or nursing 
degree. With the help of Mike, she 
caddied last summer at the FWCC 
after working three years in the pro 
shop. In just one summer she was 
given the distinction of caddying in 
the Mad Anthony tournament. 

Even though not all hard work 
would result in national recognition, 
a word to the wise might be: Keep 
totin' those clubs!

pink signs hung on the wall

Ti'minding students and

the policy is still in effect. 

True. Absence Causes

suggestion or guideline 
given to the teachers from 
the school administration, 
but there has been no 
definite interpretation of the

free to interpret it as he or

The real trouble here is 
that no one is sure, 
especially the students 
(whom the policy affects!, of 
how the administration and 
the teachers enforce it. 

Some teachers count only 
U'lexcused absences when 
totaling how many days out 

of the ten-day allotment a 
student has missed, but 
others count both excused 
and unexcused absences. 
Possibly one clear 

interpretation of the policy 
should be used by all 

True, one class is different 
from another, and some 
depend on regular 

attendance, but a student 
should not be penalized as 
heavily as he is for missing 
school because of illness or 
religious beliefs.

01 iginated to discourage 
some of the students who

Sometimes a student Uke

People who formerly thought they 
were doomed never to have a gfreen 
thumb can now find comfort in the 
newest craze in the plant world 
terrarium gardening. 

Actually, the "new" fad dates 
back all the way back to the 1800's, 
but the terrarium remains popular, 
mainly because it allows anyone to 
become a gardener. Taking care of 
one is a simple task since, once the 
creative work is out of the way, 
nature does virtually everything 

Three steps to consider 

The three steps that a prospective 
gardener must first consider, 
however, are the planning, design 
and planting that he must do. These 
are essential to the success of the 

The first, planning, includes the 
choosing of plants and the selection 
of the bowl or dome that the garden 
will go in. It is generally wise to 
decide one with the other in mind, 
because otherwise the plants might 
be too large for the container or vice 

The second step, design, presents 
almost no restrictions. Simply draw 
a small map of how you want the 
plants and decorations placed, and 

Green thumbs 
cultivate terrariums 

then move on to the planting stage. 

To plant a terrarium is relatively 
easy. All that's needed is house 
plant soil, charcoal, which is used to 
keep the soil sweet and the 
environment healthy, and gravel, 
used for preventing water-logged 
soil - and the plants, of course, which 
follow the tastes of the gardener. 

Smftll jobs remain 

After these three are 
accomplished, the only remaining 
job is the occasional removal of 
twigs and dead blossoms to prevent 
disease or insect invasion. To 
prevent moisture build-up, the lid 
needs to be checked from time to 
time for condensation and removed 
for a few days if any is found. 

Terrarium gardening is becoming 
more and more popular and more 
and more information is being put

out about them. For those who 
previously lacked talent with plants, 
and for those who didn't, it could be 
an interesting and enjoyable 
opportunity and a chance to boast a 
green thumb.

Genesis, Hollander perform different but 


classic works 


Although "The Lamb Lies Down on 
Broadway" by Genesis ond Rachmaninoff's 
"Piano Conceruj No, 2 in C Minor" have little 
in common, except being exceptionally fine 
works in their rcspeclivo musical fields, it 
could easily be said that the performances of 
both, given in separate concerts a week and a 
half ago, were probably two of the best 
musical events in Fort Woyno this past year. 

Genesis outdoes itself 

Surrealism and fantasy combined to make 
the Genesis concert, on Feb. 3. a truly unique 
experience and undoubtedly the best rock 
performance here of the year. The group 
managed to outdo even themselves, sur- 
passing their old show--a very difficult feat to 

The surrealistic idea was conveyed not 
only through the music and story of Rael, a 
young Puerto Rican in New York City, but 
also through the slides, many of which were 
paintings by surrealistic artists Salvadore 
Dali and Max Ernst. The slide show itself 
contained well over a thousand pictures and 
deserves special recognition for having been 
put together so well. 

Fewer costume changes were made, hut 
were not missed as Peter Gabriel, lead 
vocalist and floutist, dominated the stage 
with his antics as Rael, the Imperial Aerosol 
Kid. Numerous other devices were used in 
the show which included onstage explosions 
and shadow effects. 
Minor difficulties 

The performance of the group was 
excellent. Gabriel's voice held out 
surprisingly well throughout the two hour 
concert. Tony Banks, on keyboards, and Phil 
Collins, on drums and percussives, are 

undoubtedly two of the top musicians in 
their fields and Michael Rutherford on bass 
and Steve Hackett on guitar, also excellent 
musicians, were outstanding. 

There were, unfortunately, a few minor 
difficulties with the show, as is generally the 
case. The acoustics of the Coliseum are bad, 
and many times the words of "The Lamb, 
etc. ■ were garbled. There were also many 
complaints about the "festival seating " 
arrangement; sitting on the floor for two 
hours is hard on the back. In any case, it was 
a definite improvement over the Armory, 
where the Genesis concert last April was 


Hollander talks, performs 

Mr Hollander's artistry was revealed in 
his performance ond through a program in 
which he was featured on Saturday, Feb. 8, 
entitled "A Conversation with Young 
People". In this "Conversation" and 
performance, the pianist showed himself to 
be a true communicator of the arts and also 
sincerely involved in the work he was doing. 

He is also concerned about young people 
and their search for enjoyment and meaning 
in life, and stated his belief in the importance 
of the arts in general and in education. Mr. 

Hollander, whose hfe has been the concep 
hall for the past 18 years (he is now 30), 
who began playing and composing at theap, 
of three and a half, has done extensi\^ 
work, much of it on a voluntary basis, to heir 
educate young people in music appreciation 
Speaking Saturday, the pianist stress^ 
the use of music to find insights into th. 
personal lives of listeners. 

Although Mr. Hollander's concert i\,-^.. 
time was not volunteer work, it was certain]., 
a lesson in music appreciation, and brougb; 
to a close an enjoyable week of music. 

Languages offer more if started earlier 

At the end of eighth grade, junior 
high students have to decide 
whether or not they should take a 
foreign language. Many of these 
students decide to take one of the 
two languages offered. Because they 
start a language in the ninth grade, 
they should be able to test out of the 
language in college, but some who 
take even four years of that 
language in high school cannot test 
out of even one year in college. 

There are however, a number of 
possible solutions. One would be to 
move at a faster rate in high school, 
but many students now, who are in 
classes that move at a slower pace, 
cannot or will not take the time to 
learn a new language with new 
grammatical patterns, vocabulary 
words and spelling, especially after 

they've spent the last ten years 
trying to grasp the English 

Portage Junior High has 
attempted to aid the students in 
foreign languages by offering a class 
for seventh and eighth graders in 
French culture. The language itself 
is not taught, though a few words 
are learned. The class deals mainly 
with the customs and history of 

But that is the only class offered. 
Prospective Spanish students are 
out of luck. It would be beneficial for 
schools to offer culture classes about 
countries such as Spain and 
Germany. But better still would be 
if junior highs could actually start 
seventh and eighth graders in the 
language itself. More students 

language in college and more 
importantly. have a better 
understanding of the language of 
another people. 

After all, taking a foreign 
language should be more than just a 
grade in a class that is required for 
most colleges. It should bring one 
group of people close to another. It 
should lead us to understand 
another nation of people that Uve on 
the same planet. 

Possibly, when Americans realize 
that education is one of the most 
important programs that tax dollars 
can finance, foreign languages could 
be offered in elementary school, 
where the students could learn the 
language while at the same time 
mastering the basics of English.

Elmhurst led after the 
first event, vaulting, by 
taking three seconds, a 
third, and one first. Then 
Wayne pulled ahead after 
the uneven parallel bars and 
still maintained a narrow 
lead after the balance beam. 
Elmhurst failed to place in 
floor exercise except for one 
first in the optional level. 
This proved to be the 
determining factor as 
Wayne ended up on top by a 
considerable score. 

The team was led by 
sophomore Karyn Heiney. 
She won both vault and floor 
exercise, placing second in 
bars and beam for the 
optional level. 

The girls' basketball team 
won Jan. 25 against a tall

Starters were Sally

was ahead 11-8 at the half. 
The short Trojan ball club 
continued to pull away and 
beat the Bruins soundly. 

"They are playing more 
team ball now," stated the 
coach. Mrs. Lucy Doswell. 
"The Northrop game shows 
this true." 

The Trojan team suffered 
a loss Jan. 30, to a tough 
Wayne team. The game, 
held at Wayne, ended with a 
score of 21-31. The team 
kept within 1-3 points of 
Wayne up until the third 
quarter. Then the Generals

During past years,

had strong basketball 
teams. With so many

ironical that the Trojans

had beaten Snider just

The Trojans should carry

Trojans first in SAC; defeat Snider 

by Jim McCleneghen 

For a basketball team 
that was inexperienced. 
small and not intended to be 
any kind of real contender 
for the SAC crown, the 
Elmhurst Trojans are not 
having a bad season. Not 
only are the Trojans 13-2 
overall, but by virtue of 
smashing Snider 88-72 last 
Friday they hold a very 
strong grip on first place. 

The game started out 
looking pretty good for the 
Panthers as they put the 
game's first four points on 
the board. However, things 
were not to go so all night. 
The Trojans ran off an 
exhibition that was a joy for 
the Elmhurst half of a 
capacity crowd to see. 
Before Snider knew what hit 
them they were 13 points 
behind and the first quarter 
had just ended. 

Panthers close gap 

The second quarter was 
much more evenly played as 
the Panthers were able to go 
into the dressing room at the 
short end of a 40-28 half. The 
first half lead was mainly 
contributed by Raymond 
and Larry Reese, who scored 

32 and 17 points 
respectively, a combmation 
of 49 of the Trojans' 88 total 
points. Sophomore Ernie 
Starks also recorded 17 
points, while senior Keith 
Bradtmiller scored 12, 

The third quarter was the 
only time the Trojans had 
any trouble with the 
Panthers as the Snider fiiil 
court press resulted in eight 
Elmhurst turnovers and 
Snider outscoring the 
Trojans 26-18 in the quarter. 

As the foiirth segment got 
under way, Snider cut the 
Trojans' lead to 4. But that 
was as close as the Panthers 
would come; the Reese 

brothers exploded for 17 
points to lead a fourth 
quarter spurt of 30 points. 

Elmhurst stands alone 

The Trojans . now 6-0 in 
the SAC, have only two 
more conference games. 
This Friday s game finds 
Elmhurst hosting North 
Side. The Trojans need win 
only one of their two 
remaining SAC games to 
claim first place; by virtue

In previous articles I have 
referred to some of the 
shortcomings in the physical 
education and major athletic 
facilities at Elmhurst . In 
this article I will be con- 
cerned with identifying 
these shortcomings and the 
likelihood of major facility 

The six major P.E. and 

' athletic program concerns 

caused by facility 

shortcomings at Elmhurst 

are as follows: 

1. Lack of a facility to 
conduct an intra- 
mural program. 

2. Lack of sufficient 
physical education 
stations (P.E. classes 
are "crowded.") 

3. Lack of adequate P.E. 
storage areas. 

3. Lack of adequate 
locker room faciUties. 

5. Lack of adequate fa- 
cilities to practice 
major indoor sports 
for all teams. 

6. And. some would add, 
lack of a complete 
basketball hall. 

Shortcomings discussed 
I will touch briefly on each 

of these shortcomings. 

Intramurals offer physical 
development and recreation 
to all who participate. 

P.E. classes are crowded 
because of the numbers who 
elect P.E. as compared to 
the number of availab'e 
class periods. Handicapped 
students have little 
opportunity until more P.E. 
space is provided. 

The new outdoor physical 
education buildmg added 
much needed locker space 
for football, track and 
baseball, but more space is 
needed near the gym areas. 
The "visitors" locker room 
is "embarrassing." 

Also it takes a lot of space 
to store gymnastics and 
P.E. equipment. It should 
be stored close to where it 
normally is used. 

There is tremendous 
competition for the gym 
station. The sophomore, 
junior varsity, varsity boys 
teams and the girls varsity 
team need to practice daily. 
But how many people can 
practice at one time? 

Elmhurst High School 
was originally constructed 
in 1931. At that time, this 

beautiful structure was a 
"schoolman's dream" and a 
student delight. Over the 
years, it became obsolete. 
As with all buildings in the 
Fort Wayne Community 
Schools, the superintendent 
of schools, Lester Grile, has 
scheduled improvements. 
Plans are being formulated. 
Future graduating classes 
will have no need to 
complain. The students, 
faculty, and administration 
can only wait and see what 
the school board can decide.

Winning two out of their 
last three basketball games, 
[de Elmhurst Trojans closed 
put their home basketball 
reason with an 8-1 record. 
fheir only defeat came at 
the hands of a tough North 
_^ide team, 67-61. The 
lYojans revenged the loss by 
beating Huntington 67-63 
and trouncing New Haven 

The nineteenth-ranked 
Trojans travel to Concordia 
[[lis coming Friday and 
finish out the season at 
Mississinewa Saturday 
night, A win at Concordia 
would give Elmhurst the 
SAC title with a 7-1 
conference record, while a 
loss would create a three- 
way tie between Elmhurst, 
North Side, and Snider. 

North controls quarter 

The first quarter of the 
North Side game opened 
with the Redskins 

controlling the tip and 
scoring the first basket. 
Keith Bradtmiller quickly 
countered with a bucket for 
ttie Trojans. An aggressive 
zone defense used by North 
shut off the outside shooting 

of Elmhurst s Ray and 
Larry Reese during the first 
quarter and for most of the 
game. The first period ended 
with the Redskins on top 13- 

Sloppy defense on the 
part of the Trojans let the 
North Side lead rise to 27-22 
before Larry Reese hit a 25- 
foot desperation-bank shot 

with one second left in the 
period. Larry then sank a 
foul shot closing the score to 
27-25 in favor of North 
before both teams entered 
their respective dressing 

Trojans trail 

The third stanza saw 
North Side draw away to a 
44-38 lead in a very 

before an unenthusiastic 
crowd. The Trojans 
threatened to make the 
game a runaway, leading 62- 
42 with 5:30 left in the 
game, before New Haven 
narrowed the gap to 71-57 as 
the game ended.

Ernie Starks positions himself

Both teams' offense was 
ragged with many turnovers 
forced by both clubs' good 

North Side bulged its lead 
to 58-48 with 3:51 left in the 
game before Elmhurst came 
cruising back, scoring seven 
unanswered points. The 
Trojans narrowed North's 
lead to 62-60 with about one 
minute left. That was as 
close as the Trojans could 
get as the Redskins 

outscored Elmhurst 5-1 in 

the last minute of play and 

the game ended at 67-61 in 

favor of North Side. 

Things look up 

The Trojans took out their

The sectional "jinx" 
struck Elmhurst again as 
the Trojans fell to the 
Homestead Spartans in 
overtime last Wednesday 

A desperation shot made 
by Philip Keipper just as the 
buzzer sounded gave 
Homestead the victory and 
ousted Elmhurst in its first 
sectional game. Only the 
1 970-7 1 Elmhurst 
basketball team has won a 
sectional title in the past 44 
years of the high school's 

A combination of good 
man-to-man press, led by 
senior Keith Bradtmiller 
and sophomore Ernie 
Starks. along with the super 
shooting of Ray Reese were 
the main reasons for the 
Trojans jumping out to a 
quick 20-10 lead by the end 
of the first quarter. 

Momentum shifted to the 
Homestead side as the 
Spartans outscored 
Elmhurst 22-14.

Elmhurst gymnasts lose to Snider; defeat North Side 

The Elmhurst girl' 
gymnastic team was foiled 
by Snider, Feb. 5, in the 
Trojan gymnasium. 

The Trojan gymnasts 
faced the toughest team in 
the city and did rather well 
considering Snider 's 
previous records. Elmhurst 
trailed slightly after 
vaulting and unevens in all 
three levels of competition. 
The optional level 
experienced a disadvantage 
in the uneven bars as EHS 

had only one girl's score for 
the total. Thus Snider 
garnered many points by 
having a fuU event with 
three gymnasts. 

The Trojans narrowed the 
lead down after balance 
beam, scoring well in this 
area. But the floor exercise 
once again was dominated 
by the Panthers. After a 
tough battle Elmhurst faced 
defeat but with a very good 

The Trojan gymnasts 

proved victorious, however, 
over the North Side 
Redskins Feb. 12 at a home

put on a fine show as they 
racked up a considerable 
score over North. 

The team swept vaulting. 
They took all three places in 
beginning, allowing onlj

place in intermediate and

The work begins in September and lasts through 
March. Colleges must be contacted repeatedly, posters 
must be made and distributed, programs must be 
designed and printed, and technicalities must be worked 
out and carried out. The responsibility for all these roles 
falls to the music department. 

The annual Ehnhurst High School Jazz Festival which 
brings in approximately 200 participants and 4,000 
spectators, is the result of seven months of work. Three 
student chairmen coordinate the committees which will 
work before and during the festival. The chairmen of the 
1975 festival are senior Linda Markey. junior Jim 
Yarborough, and sophomore Sue Taylor. 

The participating jazz bands need to be informed of the 
program and the date. The special guest and his band 



need to be contracted, and then comes the colleges and 
high schools. This involves a lot of paper work, Typing is 
done by junior Dave Knox, junior Kim Markey, and senior 
Linda Markey. 
Publicity major undertaking 

The project of putting out a program listing the 
participating bands and their members was done this year 
by senior Linda Whitton and junior Sue Marquis, 
members of the Elmhurst journalism department is well 
as the band. Senior Dave Rinehart contracted 
advertisements from local merchants. This year the 
program will be slightly longer-28 pages total. There will 
be a map on the inside of the back cover pointing out such 
things as restaurants near the school. The front cover of 
the program is a trumpet and was designed by Mrs, 
Randy Brugh. 

(cont. from p. 1) 
the quarter before Ray 
Reese hit a pair of free 
throws giving the Trojans 
the lead 34-32 upon entering 
the dressing room. 

The third period opened 
with Homestead getting its 
third straight jump-ball tip. 
The Spartans trimmed 
Elmhurst's lead to one point 
by the end of the period, 42- 
41, setting the stage for an 
exciting fourth quarter. 

Elmhurst gained the tip 
and held the upper hand 
until about the 2:00 mark of 
the fourth period. Leading 
58-53, Elmhurst made the 
terrible mistake of fouling 
Homestead guard Jim 
Haifley, who in turn sank 
two free throws, narrowing 
the Trojan lead to 58-55. 
Two more free throws made 
by Homestead narrowed the 
lead further to 58-57 with 
1:09 left before senior Dave 
Campbell hit a free throw. 
The Spartans came right 
back and were fouled again. 
They connected on both 
ends of a very crucial one- 
and-one shot tying the score 
at 59-59 with 0i28 seconds 

The Trojans had some 
trouble getting the ball 
down the floor, but finally 
manged to get it across the 
10-second line before calling 

time out with (D:07 seconds 
left in the game. Following 
the time out, the ball came 
in to Ray Reese, who was 
boxed in the corner and took 
a 30-foot desperation shot as 
the buzzer sounded. The 
quarter ended at 59-59 
sending the game into a 3:00 
overtime period. 

The two teams traded 
baskets for the first minute 
and a half until Homestead's 
free throw shooting put 
them into the lead 66-63 
with 1:24 to go in the game. 
The Trojans came right back 
down the floor with Ray 
Walker getting fouled. Ray 
hit his first free throw, then 
Homestead called time out. 
After the timeout. Ray 
Walker came back and 
under great pressure hit his 
second free throw,' 

narrowing the Spartan lead 
to 66-65 with less than a 
minute left. The Elmhurst 
defense then came to life 
with the Reese brothers 
stealing the ball. Again Ray 
Walker played the main role 
when he hit an 8-foot base- 
line jump shot to give 
Elmhurst the lead 67-66 
with 0:29 seconds left. The 
Trojan defense again 
prevailed when Ernie Starks 
intercepted a Homestead 
pass. He then passed the 
ball to Ray Reese who was 

then fouled with 0:16 left. 
Ray missed his first shot 
and Homestead grabbed the 
rebound calling time out. 
Homestead had much 
trouble getting the ball up 
court when it appeared that 
a Spartan guard was 
trapped at the ten-second 
line. The Spartan guard got 
his pass off to a teammate 
just in time. Homestead got 
two shots off, missing both 
but grabbing the rebounds. 
The third shot taken by 
Homestead's reserve center 
Philip Keipper, with 
practically no time left, went 
in as the buzzer sounded, 
giving Homestead the 
victory 68-67. 

Elmhurst fans could not 
believe what had happened. 
Some showed their anger 
after the game, others cried, 
and still others just stared 
in utter disbelief at the 
suddenness with which the 
game ended. 

When interviewed the 
next day, Coach Kenny 
Eytcheson declared. "Our 
kids took it like men. 
Remember this group for 
what they did during the 
year. " The only thing for the 
Trojans to do, according to 
Coach Eytcheson, is, "Close

Many of America's youth windows, and lock and seat ^tVlJ 

Many of America's youth 
between the ages of 16 and 19 own 
cars. It is reasonable to assume 
that the majority of these 
teenagers could not afford to 
purchase new cars and so resorted 
to shopping for used automobiles. 

Consumer Reports magazine and 
authorities on automobiles 
generally agree that the 
advantages of buying at a new car 
dealership usually outweigh those 
of buying from a private party or 
those businesses engaged solely in 
dealing with second-hand 

After a shopper has seen a car 
that appeals to him. there are many 
things he may do to determine if it 
is a good buy. He can get a general 
idea of whether it b reasonably 
good by examining the conditions 
of the paint, upholstery, floor, and 
tires ■ aU basic signs of how well the 
car has been cared for. 

But, in addition to this, the 
consumer is well off to make some 
tests in its working order. Before 
starting the engine, brake pressure. 

indows, and lock and seat 
adjustments can be checked. After 
operating ignition, smoothness of 
start, steering stability, and 
gauges and warning Lights should 
be examined. 

The prospective purchase should 
always be taken for a drive prior to 
any payment. The car should be 
driven in both forward and reverse. 
and if the transmission is manual, 
all gears should be tested. At this. 
the driver should not find any 
jerking or grabbing. For an 
indication of what condition the 
engine is in the purchaser can 
accelerate quickly and look for a 
fast, smooth pick-up. Likewise, the 
brakes should respond quickly 
without swerving or scraping or 
grinding sounds. 

A used car buyer should expect 
to spend some money after the 
purchase, but he should also be 
aware of the above-mentioned 
things, because they can be costly 
to repair and are important in 
deciding whether the car will be a 
'lemon' or not. 


How to 

Three of the most common 
sudden problems encountered by 
drivers today are flat tires, battery 
failure and radiator malfunction. 

A flat tire victim should 
remember to put the transmission 
in park (or gear if it is manual), 
engage the emergency brake, and 
begin loosening the nuts which 
hold the wheel in place(lug nuts). 
These are much easier to loosen if 
an X-shaped 'ug wrench is used 
instead of the "L " shaped tire iron 
supplied by the manufacturer. 

The jack base should be 
anchored on firm flat ground or 
pavement. The diagram posted by 
the spare tire should tell where on 
the bumper to place the jack hook. 
The bumper can also be examined 
for an indentation for this purpose. 

Process completed 

Once the jack is in place, the 

school in his dark green Chevrolet 

Malibu which is pictured here. 

direction switch, located on the 
jack, should be moved to the UP 
position. By pumping the jack 
handle slowly |the"'L" shaped lug 
wrench doubles as the jack handle), 
the car can be Lfted enough off the 
ground to get the spare tire into 
place. The flat tire can now be 
removed and the spare tire fitted 
over the exposed bolts. The lug 
nuts then must be screwed on and 
slightly tightened. With the 
direction switch on the jack turned 
back to the DOWN position, the 
car can be lowered to one or two 
inches from the ground where, with 
lug wrench and the weight of the 
body, the nuts are securely 
tightened. Finally, the car can be 
lowered completely. During the 
whole process, everyone should be 
kept away from the car. 

Coping with a bad battery 

A car suffering from a dead 
battery can be temporarily charged 
or jumped from the battery of 
another car. For this, a pair of

Drivers need

. a troubled car 

jumper cables are necessary. With 
these the positive poles of both cars 
con be connected while the car with 
the good battery is still running. 
The engine of the bad car should 
then be turned over while the 
person owning the operating car 
races his engine. When the car is 
started, the cables should be 
removed one at a time. While a 
battery is being jumped, no one 
should be smoking near by and no 
one should peer into or grab a 
charging battery. If the battery has 
been jumped often, it's probably 
time for a new battery. 

The radiator is responsible for 
drawing off the great amount of 
heat a running engine generates. It 
is located just behind the grill and 
should always be filled with 

unsoftened water or the 
appropriate mixture of antifreeze 
for winter. The hoses that lead to 
and from the radiator should be 
replaced if they are musty or 
cracked and brittle. Small leaks 

directly from the radiator can often 
be stopped with a leak-seaUng 
mixture on sale at most service 
stations. If a radiator leak is 
naglected. it will enlarge and 
require expensive soldering. 

Precautions to be taken 

The engine of a car should never 
be run if the radiator is empty The 
heat produced by an uncooled 
engine can hterally fuse the moving 
parts of a motor. Very important is 
the rule that a radiator cap should 
not be removed if the engine is even 
warm. The car should be shut off 
and have cooled for at least ten 
minutes before the cap is 
cautiously loosened. Severe burns 
can result from contact with the 
high pressure steam of a hot

First of all. Indiana state law 
does not require that a person be 
insured, only that he be able to post 
bond should he be arrested. 
Nevertheless, a license can be 
revoked and money deducted from 
wages if there is a suit against an 
uninsured driver, so it's a good idea 
for one to carry at least minimal car 

The minimum policy most 
companies sell is liability coverage 
of S15.000 per person. S30.000 per 
accident and 510.000 for property 
damage. Liability covers only 
injury and damage to other people 
and their property, not that of the 
insured. For a 17 year-old male who 
passed driver's education, it costs 

between S130 and S160 per year. 
For females, the cost per year is 
between S70 and S90, 

Medical insurance covers the

To the Editor: 

Having just read an editorial in 
the Feb. 20 issue of the Advance, 
and personally being aware of the 
consequences of the policy 
mentioned. I must wholeheartedly 
concur with the editorial 
concerning the questioning of the 
attendance policies of this school. 
Although regular attendance is 
admittedly desirable for students, 
when a person is unable to attend 
for Q reason that is beyond his 
control (i.e., accident, illness, etc.), 
it is unfair and unreasonable to 

Attendance issue recapped 


penalize him scholastically for a 
physical handicap. 

One would think that the 
ridiculousness of the circumstances 
mentioned would banish the 
possibility of these situations from 
happening. Unfortunately, this is 
not always the case. Instances 
have happened this year where 
students' grades have been 
sustantially dropped; in one 
particular case a student was kept 
off the honor roll because of this 
type of thinking, even though he 
had superior average in grade 



The time has come to bring our 
attendance ratings system (and the 
sequential effect on the grade) out 
of the Dark Ages and at least gel it 
into this century. In a time when 
our school drives us harder, and 
pounds into us the concept of 
achieving, of doing better, isn't it 
about time to ask the 
administration to practice what it 

Tom Young 

To The Editor: 

This may seem trivial to many 
people in the school, but there are 
enough people in the school in 
agreement with me to warrant 
writing this letter. 

Every time I try to use a 
restroom between classes (or 
during lunchl I find wall-to-wall 
people in a room so thick with 
smoke that it is virtually 
impossible for a non-smoker to 
breathe. This is due, in part, to the 
lack of a more suitable place to 
smoke, and in a larger part, an 
unspoken policy on the part of the 

I believe that if the 
administration continues to allow 
this situation to ejust, they should 
at least take into consideration the 
non-smokers and their rights. I feel 
that one (I don't want much) 
bathroom somewhere in the school 
should be thoroughly policed so 
that non-smokers could use a 
restroom without a gas mask.

Cathy Russell, coach of the 
team, explains, "The boys' 
coaches have aided greatly 
in helping the girls with 
their techniques and style. 

There will be nine running 
events the girls can 
participate in. The field 
events include the shot put 
(8 lbs.), the high jump, the 

"I think records will be 
set if the weather is good," 
states Coach Kemp, "and it 
should be a good meet 
because Harding has 
improved and we can see 
what the team does in live 

In past years Coach 
Kemp's team has had 
success but as yet no first 
place ribbons have come 
home with the team. The co- 
holder of the 1:27.8 state 
record in 880-yard relay is 
the best place yet attained 
by an Elmhurst squad. This 
record was set in 1972 by the 
880-year relay team of Nate 
Brown, Ron Talley, Fred 
Jackson, and Willie Knox.

The girls' tennis team is at it again for the third straight 
year. The team has been practicing since March 3, from 2:45 
to 4:00 in the girls' gym on conditioning and getting down 
the basic strokes. Any girl who is interested may still come 
out, according to Coach Lucy Doswell. 

Mrs. Doswell is very happy with the turnout of this year's 
team. A total of 25 girls, 12 upperclassmen and 13 
sophomores, have turned out. However, only four girls are 
returning from last year's team -- Sally Hinton, Janet Gillie, 
Cheryl Norton and Marty Kelly. 

"We are hoping to be able to use the tennis courts this 
spring, if they ever get the posts right," stated Mrs. 
Doswell. It seems that the posts which support the tennis 
nets are three inches too short, and it wouldn't do the girls 
any good to start playing with the nets at that height. 

In past years at Elmhurst the girls tennis teams haven't 
done too well, but with all the talent and experience they 
have this year, it should be a promising season. 

Softball throw, and the 
running long jump. 

Coach Russell was very 
pleased at the turnout for 
track and feels that 
Elmhurst will have a lot of 
good talent for the oncoming

Heiney makes regionals 

For most of the gymnastics team 
the season has ended, but 
sophomore Karyn Heiney has 
advanced to Regionals. 

This year's gymnastic sectionals 
were held at Northrop on March 10- 
11. Elmhurst took a full t«am of 12 
members hoping to improve 
standing over last year's showing. 
Of the twelve team members, only 
Karyn Heiney placed second on her 
optional vaulting, and will move on 

I 1 

to regionals on March 21. at 
Blackford High School in 
IndianapoUs. Karyn also managed 
to place third all around. 

In overall competition, twelve 
teams entered, South Side, 
Northrop, Snider, and Wayne 
dominated the n^eet by taking all 
but one of the first four places. 

One Elmhurat team member 
stated "The team is good but when 
you actually get out to do your 

routirte you just fall apart. " Another 
added "Karyn Heiney showed great 
potential at sectionals. If she does 
as well at regionals, she could place 
instate. We are hopeful. " 

The team has been practicing 
hard since November. Each girl set a 
goal for herself to achieve by the end 
of the season. For some, it was a 
particular stunt, for others winning 
sectionals. Now, for the team as a 
whole it's a hope for Karyn to 
advance on and place in state.

Rotary Club luncheons. In the past only 
senior male students were chosen, but 
recently a few schools have included female 
students in the Rotary Club's list of luncheon

Bureau Liz explained. "I think that it's 
really great: things are finally moving in the 
right direction for women. 1 really wish that 1

so that I could have been introduced to this 
sooner and would have more time involved in

Club plans dance 

Yes, a dance is coming! The Y- 
Teens club will be sponsoring a 
Sadie Hawkins Day Dance on April 
25 from 7:30 to 10:30 in the evening. 

Tickets will be on sale in the 
cafeteria for $1 per person a week 
before the dance. 

The purpose of the Sadie Hawkins 
Day Dance is to raise money for the 
Y-Teens, a club working for a civic 
cause Another purpose is to give 
each girl a chance to ask that special 
guy to be her date for the dance. 
Music will be provided by the 

Club president Holly Miller 
commented, "With all the spirit 
that the students have shown this 
year, we're all hoping that they'll 
get really involved with this. Also 
that day is the Student Council Fun 
Day and everyone should be in a 
good mood. I'm sure anyone that 
comes will have a fantastic time."

The American Field Service, one 
of the most active clubs at school, 
has been and will be busy with 
several projects. 

Because the organization needs to 
raise over $2000 to help sponsor 
exchange students, the past three 
activities have been money-raising. 
A paper drive in February, a 
basketball game March 25, and a 
volleyball night April 10 all brought 
good profits. Also to help earn 
money the club has been conducting 
a penny collection in homerooms. 
According to treasurer Mary Roop, 
these small donations by the 
students, faculty and 

administration have helped 
considerably. A final paper drive is 
tentatively scheduled for May. 

Coming up April 25-27, Elmhurst 
is sponsoring an AFS Weekend. 
Twenty exchange students and their 
American brothers and sisters from 
around this part of Indiana will be 
staying with Elmhurst families. The 
group is invited to attend a dance 
sponsored by Y-Teens that Friday

of May. The petition requires five signatures 
from the faculty and 60 signatures from the 
student body. 

Some requirements for the offices are that

Feet walk against 

Once again there will be a walk in 
Fort Wayne to raise money for the 
hungry of the world — this time it will 
be run under a new name. 

Last year there was no walk and 
young people from around the city 
inquired what had happened to the 
endeavor. Well, this year these veteran 
walkers' inquiries will be answered 
with the Hunger Walk organized by 
Friends of the Third World. 

Name changes, goals continue 

Walk participants from previous 
years may be puzzled over the name 
and remember the days of the Walk for 
Development sponsored by Youth for 
Development. The name change came 
after the national organization, Youth 
for Development, died out and Fort 
Wayne members, desiring to continue 
the work, set up the local Friends of 
the Third World. The goals have 
remained intact. 

Proceeds from this year's walk will 
be divided in three categories for 
distribution. Forty-five percent of the 
money will go toward building food 
storage bins to protect stored crops, 
and plows in Ghana, Africa. This part 
of Africa is expected to increase its 


Local groups split profits 

Locally, two groups will split 
another 45%. Half will go to the Benito 
Juarez Center. The Benito Juarez 
Center will use their money to help 
people to get jobs, counseUng, and 

The Martin Luther King Center will 
use their money to provide help to the 
elderly, educational services, 
emergency food, and recreation to 
people of Fort Wayne's East Central 
Neighborhood. The emergency help is 
given until the families become self- 

The remaining 10% of the walk 
proceeds will help sustain the Third 
World Center and expand its inventory 
of handicrafts and books. The profits 
from these sales go to needy people in 
Fort Wayne. 

The Hunger Walk covers twenty-six 
miles starting and ending in Franke 
Park on April 19. Much the same route 
will be followed as in 1971, the most 
successful year for the walk in this 
city. Registration cards are available 
at the Third World Center, 428 E. 
Berry and in the Eimhurst cafeteria

It urges the honored juniors to 
strive for scholastic achievement in 
their senior year.

Ms. Modesitt, former

Thursday, April 19. Ms. Modesitt 
talked on women's rights and the

With the season barely 
under way, Elmhurst's golf 
team has been struggling 
against their early 
opponents. Last Thursday, 
April 24, Elmhurst dropped 
all of their matches against 
Snider, North Side, and 
Bishop Luers at Riverbend 
to sink to a record of one 
win, five losses. A total of 
184 was posted by 
Elmhurst, which wasn't 
nearly enough to defeat the 

three foes. 

Junior Jim McCleneghen 
stroked a 42 for the best 
Elmhurst score of the day, 
followed by junior Mark 
Newell with a 46, Senior Jim 
Norton had a 47 while 
seniors George Huber and 
Mike Arnold ended with a 49 
and 50 respectively. 

At the April 22 golf 
match, Elmhurst gained its 
only victory as a result of a 
forfeit by Harding. At that

^ent over need-x ^Financial status^ 

Lk by Cindy Ro8B ' hv LesUe Collier ^J0 

g\^ by Cindy Ross 

>A person who has financial need 
can certainly go to college if he so 
^^V desires. How? Loans, grants, and 
^y scholarships. But what about an 
^pgp only child who shows outstanding 
^^^g academic achievement in high 

O school, but whose parents make a 
gross annual income of $18,000 to 
^^^" 822,000? He has very little chance 
^^ of financial help. 

Although the only child's family 
- -^ doesn't have pressing financial

a attempt to put their child through 
college, they will have difficulties 

^^B making ends meet if they receive no 
outside financial help. There should 
'be some means of financial aid for 
families in this situation and 
scholarships should be that means. 

At present, scholarships are 
awarded for about anything. At 
Indiana University, there are 216 
different scholarships ranging from 
S25 to S2.000. most of which have 
little or no academic requirements. 
Many require graduation from a 
certain high school, a promise to 
major in a certain field, or simply 
being of a certain race or creed. It is 
not necessary for a person to prove 
that he has what it takes to make it 
in college, namely ambition and 
academic achievement. 
Scholarships should be given to 
people that have already shown 
these characteristics during high 




What about people who have a 
desperate financial need and a 
strong desire for college, but whose 
records may not qualify them for a 
purely academic scholarship? 
There are thousands of different 
loans available, up to S7,500 
annually for under-graduates, at as 
low as 3 per cent interest repayable 
over a ten-year period. Local, state 
and federal grants are also easily 
obtainable up to SIO.OOO, and these 
require no repayment. In 1974, 
5658.7 million worth of federal 
grants were awarded nationwide. 

Awarding scholarships to 
scholars and using loans for those 
with real financial need and not 
meeting the grant standards would 
help insure that scholarship money 
would not be wasted. If a 
scholarship were given based solely 
on financial need, and after one 
year of college the person 
discovered that he couldn't make 
it, that money was totaUy wasted. 
Taking out a loan and knowing that 
it has to be repaid provides added 
incentive for study and completion 
of college. 

With so many people who want 
higher education and so little 
money to go around, what money 
there is should be put to its most 
constructive use. 

by Leslie Collier 

During this time of what seems 
to be non-stop inflation, the 
thought of paying for a college 
education may end up to be no 
more than a thought ... a wish .., a 
dream ., ora hope. 

The fact is that there are many 
high school students throughout 
the country who are being deprived 
of desperately wanted college 
educations, WHY? Because they 
are financially unable to receive 

It is the dream of many young 
people to get a college degree. 
Many work twelve long, hard years 
to prepare for college and upon 
graduation from high school are 
suddenly confronted with the 
realization that they can't afford a 
college degree. Should that end 
their dream, simply because they 
cannot pay for college expenses? 
Should the academically superior 
student settle for a high school 
diploma when he is capable of 
obtaining a college degree with 
financial assistance? These 
questions and many others are 
confronting high school students 
considering college. The answers to 
them are not as obvious as they 
may appear. 

One important factor is the type 
of counseling a student receives 
during his high school years. 
Although no student should be 

pushed towards a higher education 
which he doesn't want, those who 
do desire further education should 
receive encouragement. Many 
students do not receive any 
encouragement whatsoever at 
home, so it is up to the school to 
provide it for them. Providing this 
encouragement may fall into many 
different forms, such as counseling 
on what college to attend or how to 
qualify for various scholarships, 
grants, and loans or tuition, cost of 
materials, etc. 
Putting the mone> to use 

Many students are left with the 
impression that if they don't have a 
99,9% grade average they can kiss 
a scholarship goodbye. Well, not 
too long ago this was true, but 
scholarships are now becomming 
available to students more on the 
basis of their financial need. 
Universities such as Western 
Kentucky, Harvard, University of 
Chicago, New York University and 
many others are now offering these 
types of scholarships. Just because 
a student was not on the honor roll 
for four straight years does not 
mean that he has no potential. 
Given the chance (which is what 
these types of scholarships do|, 
many students who would have 
stopped with a high school diploma 
continue their educations and 
become very useful to society.

Time for 

A great sport for getting a lot of 
people together is softball. A group 
of about 10 or 15 people (preferably 
those who know how to play, but not 
necessarily needed) is all it takes to 
start a game. Although knowing 
how to play helps, not knowing how 
can often provide some comic relief 
to the afternoon. 

Contrary to popular belief, some 
of the best softball players in the 
city are female. Many churches and 
groups have organized girls' softball 
teams and they have subsequently 
become some of the top area players. 

Diamonds are available all over 
the city. All the city parks and 
almost all the schools have them, so 
access is unlimited. Even if these are 
full, a diamond can easily be mapped 
out on any large area. 

Softball, therefore, is a sport for 
everyone and for an enjoyable 


P Bicycling is invariably one of the 
most popular choices for spending a 
spring or summer day. The sport 
offers something for practically 
everyone --■ from sightseers to 
exercise fanatics to ecologists. 

Fort Wayne has in recent years 
designed several bike paths. The 
closest of these is the one that starts 
and ends at Foster Park making a 
circle through the downtown area. 
The north end of town has a similar 
path system. 

Those really involved in the sport 
may choose to take cross country 
trips or may even choose to 
compete. These two events are 
continually gaining in popularity 
and many clubs have been started, 
both locally and nationally for those 
interested in both. One of these. 
Taylor University's "Wandering 
Wheels", has a sizeable membership 
in this area. 

All in all, bicycling is basically a 
sport for everyone, whether it be a 
simple hobby or a strongly 
competitive sport. 

Kite flying 

One of the most enjoyable 
diversions of spring is kite flying — 
particularly on those days when the 
weather is near perfect, but with 
enough wind to keep most other 
activities from being fun. 

Interesting kites serve to make 
the sport not only fun, but beautiful 
to watch. Lately, many new designs 
have been developed such as the 25 
and 47 foot long metaUic snake 
kites. Others come in various 
geometrical shapes such as cones, 
pyramids and cylinders as 
variations on the well-known box 
kite. Last, but certainly most 
popular, is the standard diamond 
shape kite. 

Since kites are relatively 
inexpensive and can be obtained at 
toy stores and many dime stores, 
they make for a good opportunity to 
get outside and enjoy spring. All 
thafs needed is a lot of string, a 
good solid kite, and a Uttle energy to 
make an afternoon exciting. 

. spring fun 


Several years ago (and it's been a 
few), no one knew what a frisbee 
was. Today, everyone knows, and 
thousands of people play -■ so many 
in fact, that it is popular enough to 
have world championship 


Frisbee, unfortunately, is one of 
those games that can't be played on 
a windy day — unless of course a 
person wants to play alone, that is, 
since the wind usually causes the 
frisbee to boomerang back to the 
player. However, on any normal 
day, the game can usually prove 
exciting or relaxing, depending on 
the energy of the players. 

Frisbee does offer a lot of 
advantages over other sports. For 
example, it doesn't need either a 
playing field or a whole lot of area. It 
also doesn't require a whole lot of 
skill and is a fairly inexpensive

parks attract campers 

Since the days of 
urbanized society, camping 
has been an escape from the 
city life. The youth are 
among those people that 
resort to the country ude for 
relief from the routine. 

Among those parks with 
large numbers of campsites 
are Chain O' Lakes near 
Albion, Dunes at 

Chesterton, Pokagon of 
Angola, Turkey Run near 
Marshall, and Salamonie 
Reservoir by Huntington. 
All of these places except 
Salamonie have tenting 
areas for young people. 

Chain O' Lakes is a group 
of nine connecting natural 
lakes. It has a pubhc beach 
and a modem campground. 
Boats are available for 
rental and fishing is 

Indiana Dunes State Park 
is further from Fort Wayne 
than Chain O' Lakes -- about 
a three hour drive. Its main 
attraction is the sand which 
makes for three miles of 
beach. There is some dense 
forest within the park which 
attracts nature lovers. 

Pokagon brings in quite a 
few campers and 

recreationists from Fort 
Wayne. Almost any 
camping activity can be 
accommodated there. People 
bring in horses to ride the 
trails and horses can also be 
rented. Pokagon is also a 
place for the winter sports of 
skating, toboganing and ice-

bottom of canyons and

Tracksters have meet 




THE direction of coach Lucy Doswell the girls tenn, 
daily preparing for their upcoming season. 

After practicing and 
working out for the past 
month, the girls track team 
is ready to take on Snider 
and North Side tonight in 
their first meet of the 

Coach Cathy Russell feels 
that there was a good 
turnout at the beginning of 
the season, but because of 
work and transportation 
problems many of the girls 

have had to quit. This left 
only 14 girls, not near as 
many as are needed to make 
a strong team. 

The girls practiced all 
through spring vacation, 
but unfortunately, weather 
conditions did not favor 
them. Mrs. Russell stated 
that most of the girls are 
"fair weather runners", and 
so when it is cold and damp 
outside they lack the 
enthusiasm and spirit to do 

a good job. 

With girls track still in its 
first year in Fort Wayne 
Community Schools, Mrs. 
Russell does not know what 
kind of competition they will 
be up against. However, she 
stated the girls who are out 
look very promising. 

Their next meet will take 
place on April 21, against 
Concordia and South Side at 

Tennis team prepares for season 

For the past six weeks the 
girls' tennis team has been 
hitting the courts diligently 
in preparation for the 
Upcoming season. 

Coach Lucy Doswell 
stresses self apphcation in 
practice, stating, "You 
don't go out for a sport 
unless you enjoy it." She 
gives pointers here and there 
to the members who are still 
getting the basics of the 
game down, but leaves it up 
to the individual as to what 
needs practice. 

Bad weather has cost 
Tiany valuable days on the 

courts though, as snow, 
rain, and icy wind have kept 
the team confined indoors. 
Their space is limited 
because of the many other 
sports going on. 
Essentials explained 

Practice includes a variety 
of skills. A strong, 
consistent serve is especially 
important in a singles game. 
Doubles takes two people 
who have played together 
enough so they know just 
when and where their 
partner will be. Net play is 
important here, since the 
area being covered is much 
less per person than in 
singles. Shots are shorter 

and the girls practice 
playing the net in 
preparation for this. But a 
smooth, consistent, and well 
followed through shot is 
essential to both games. 
Just practicing strokes 
against the board improves 
one's game so both boards 
are used a lot. 

It's only the third year of 
competition for the tennis 
team, so it lacks experience. 
Nevertheless, when the 
players go against Dwenger 
on April 23, at Elmhurst, 
they will have weeks of 
training behind them. 
They're looking forward to a 
good season.

School system offers seniors 
government class alternatives 

Recently, the social 
studies department of 
Elmhurst has added some 
sociology alternatives to its 
curriculum, and now, during 
the summer, senior students 
of the Fort Wayne 
Community Schools will be 
able to take advantage of 
alternatives to the 
traditional government 

iDtems learn, observe 

One of these alternatives 
is the Local Government 
Intern Program. It is a four 
week summer school course 
which will meet throughout 
the city in places such as in 
the library and city-county 
building. The idea behind 
the program is to give the 
participants the chance to 
leam about the government 
through first-hand 
experience. Trials and 
hearings will be observed, 
speakers heard and research 
will be done in the library. 
Daily logs of activities and 
library research will be 

Reading and discusaion 

will still be included in this 
variation of the government 
class but personal 

observation will allow the 
students to see how the 
government works and 
relate local issues to 
national ones. 
Students to visit D.C. 

The Government-Lab 
?9minar will provide Fort 
Wayne seniors with the 
opportunity to have a 
special experience as well as 
a change in the traditional 
class. Three weeks of the 
four will be spent doing 
reading and researching in a 
North Side classroom. One 
of the weeks however, the 
group will be observing the 
Federal Government in 
Washington, D.C. 

The trip will get underway 
on Monday morning, July 
28, on a plane at Baer Field. 
From there, the participants 
will begin five days filled 
with activities and class 
meetings. Sightseeing will 
center around the three 
branches of government; 
legislative, iudicial and 

executive, as well as the 
historical and cultural 
sights of Mount Vernon, 
Kennedy Memorial Center 
and the Smithsonian 

Congressmen visited 

The offices of Senator 
Birch Bayh and 

Representative J. Edward 
Roush will be visited when 
the students explore the 
Senate Office Building and 
the Rayburn House of 
Representatives Office 
Building. The two 

legislative houses will be in 
session, so the group will see 
them in action. Visits to the 
Supreme Court, U.S. 
Treasury, Department of 
State, Australian Embassy, 
Department of Justice, and 
Federal Bureau of 
Investigation will help to fill 
out the itinerary. 

When the class returns on 
Friday, Aug. 1, they will 
resume meeting for a week 
with their teacher, Mrs. 
Rose Marie Otte, to discuss 
and analyze what was 
learned in Washington.

The previously twelfth-ranked Elmhurst 
Trojan baseball team fell to defeat at the 
hands of the DeKalb Barons twice last 
Saturday. A lack of offense along with 
defensive and mental errors led to the 
Trojans' downfall. 

Senior Dave Campbell was the starting 
pitcher in the first game and was greeted 
with a two-run homer in the first inning. 
After the first. Dave settled down fairly 
well, giving up only two runs during the rest 
of the game, one of which was unearned. 
Although Ebnhurst managed nine hits they 
scored only one run. The final tally was 4-1 

In the second game Elmhurst managed 

only two hits as Coach Derbyshire gave 
some of the regulars a rest allowing most of 
the other players a chance for action. This 
game also ended with DeKalb in front. 7-1. 

Elmhurst opened its season with an away 
game at Columbia City, where backed by 
the Diamond Devils they trounced the 
Columbia City Eagles 10-0 in six innings. 
Sophomore Brian Russell delivered the Big 
Red's first run of the season with a run- 
scoring triple in the first inning. But Brian 
was outshone by junior Terry Smith who 
pitched a one-hit shutout while fanning 12 
batters. Terry's comment on the game was 
that "it was a team effort " and no special 
person was really responsible for the 


inaalved in coaching are exhibited by Bill Derbyshi. 

Last Thursday, Elmhurst 
vied against the Belmont 
Braves at McMillen Park in 
very nippy weather. 
Although the weather was 
cold there was a very good 
turnout of Elmhurst fans. 
They were not to be denied a 
victory as senior Lynn 
Brown hurled 7 innings of 
three-hit shutout ball while 
the Trojans scratched out a 
couple of runs. 

Fans who haven't yet 
attended a Trojan game this 
year will find a new face on 
the Ebnhurst coaching staff. 
Complementing Coach Bill 
Derbyshire this year is John 
Campbell, Dave's older 
brother. John is student 
teaching at Homestead 
High School and will be 
helping Coach Derbyshire 
throughout the Big Red's 

"' irwnnn^ 

season. The vacancy he is 
filling was occupied last 
year by Mr. Warren 
Bistline, who was since gone 
into the business world. 

Elmhurst has a pair of 
SAC contests this week as 
they took on Snider Tuesday 
and challenge North Side 
tonight at Shoaff Park. The 
weekend sees the Trojans 
traveling to East Noble for a 
pair of games. Next week 
they have a pair of crucial 
games against Northrop and 

Even though the Big Red 
has a .500 record as of now, 
the outlook is bright. The 
team is very well balanced 
with a combination of speed, 
good hitting, power, good 
defense, depth in pitching, 
and fine coaching.

Actiuities cause absences 

In the past few months, there 
have been an increasing number of 
complaints aired in the halls and 
classrooms of EHS. No, it is not 
those easily disturbed, opinionated 
students, but it is the teachers who 
have been displaying their views. 
Ironically, it appears that we, the 
students, have heard more about it 
than anybody else, and we would 
ik p to present our side of the coin. 

Restricting time 

The root of the problem is the 
number of classroom interruptions 
and absences caused by other 

activities during the school day. 
Many a time have teachers 
commented on homeroom messing 
up morning classes, or yet another 
pep session that disrupts the 
classroom atmosphere. There have 
been times when one activity, such 
as band or student council, has 
talien students and time out of 
other classes, and teachers 
resented, perhaps rightfully so, the 
intrusion of their specialty. 

However, we, the students, are in 
one of the busiest times of our lives. 
Our hectic schedules, evidenced by 





1 1^* ' 


31 RasicUi' Tuxedo Renlal 

4322 DeForcst Ave. 


the many vacant bodies staggering 
around Elmhurst before spring 
break, don't allow us to restrict 
each absorbing interest to a 
specific amount of time. Certain 
activities simply require extra 
time, and we. of course, take the 
opportunity to use it. If time 
during the day wasn't given to 
those few that are involved in 
Elmhurst activities, they would 
simply not have time at all, and 
student interest would drop. 

Not students' fault 

In addition, why should we be 
the ones to receive criticism and 
penalty for missing class, or for 
attending an activity offered by the 
school? We have nothing to do with 
whether or not we will have a pep 
session, or when a concert is to be 
given. Maybe there is a student 
council, but we are not responsible 
for these "interruptions", and can 
do nothing about them. 

If teachers have a bone to pick, 
please don't throw us the bone, 
because we do not decide when 
something is going to be. There 
must be a more effective way of 
making known one's grievances, 
but through the students is not one 
of them.

Tracksters lack depth 

Although lacking depth, 
this year's track team does 
have possibilities. Coached 
by Mr. Don Kemp, the track 
men have only participated 
in three outdoor meets thus 
far because of bad weather. 

On April 8, Elmhurst ran 
against Snider and lost in 
overall team points. But 

sophomore Tim Lee, who 
won the half mile with an 
excellent time of 1:58, and 
juniors Johnny Bright and 
Brad Smith, who placed in 
the 100-yard dash, will give 
Elmhurst a chance. 

In the North Side Relays 
on April 12, Elmhurst 
placed 7th out of 16 teams 

standouts such as with 20 overall team points. 

Students enjoy wrestling 

For some people, Wednesday after school is a time to let 
loose their day's frustration. Wrestling has been their 
activity for the past four weeks and it's evident they enjoy 
it by the fact that they keep coming back. 

WrestUng intramurals are open to all students at 
Elmhurst, including those who never wrestled on a team 
before. The program is backed by wrestling Coaches Jim 
Welborn and Robert Horn. Before "engaging in combat," 
the grapplers must have a brief ten-minute warm up. After 
that the wrestlers may challenge anyone to a match, 
including the undefeated 130-pound and the undefeated 250- 
pound coaches. 

The turnout so far has been about 25 wrestlers per night, 
which is on the average about ten more than last year. The 
program lasts until 4 p.m. each night and will continue until 
the end of the semester. 

For those wishing to continue to keep in shape and 
participate in wrestling and other sports, a program is 
available this summer. The year old program will include 
running and weightUfting and will meet for two hours every 
day. Cost of the program will be 75 cents per student. 

The sprint relay team 
consisting of senior Darryl 
Jackson and juniors Johnny 
Bright, Bill MazeUn , and 
Brad Smith took first place 
with a time of 44 seconds 
flat. The distance medley 
relay with seniors Paul 
Stevens and Rod McDonald, 
junior Larry Raber, and 
sophomore Tim Lee came in 
second with a time of 7: 52.9. 
In the pole vault junior Jeff 
Heller placed fourth with a 
vault of 13 feet. 

Returning letter men this 
year are seniors Derek Paris, 
Dave Boyer, Darryl 
Jackson, and Paul Stevens 
as well as juniors Dave 
Chrzan, Jeff Heller, Bill 
Mazelin, and Larry Raber.

keeping students inside the

"Better season than last 
year" is the prediction from 
Mr. Nick WerUng, Elmhurst 
golf coach and history 
teacher. In comparison to 
last year, the team should 
fare quite well, since last 
year's season brought only 
one victory. While this 
year's team is hampered by 
inexperience, it still stacks 

up better than the 
inexperience of last year. 

Coach Werling began 
practice sessions last week, 
and among the 22 golfers 
who showed up, five are 
returning from last year's 
team. Senior letterman Mike 
Arnold, seniors Jim Norton 
and George Huber, and 
juniors Jim McCleneghen 
and Greg Smith return to 
offer their skills.

Girls place 

In their first two matches 
of the season the girls' track 
team did a fine job by taking 
third place in both meets. 

The girls' coach, Mrs. 
Cathy Russell, states, "We 
may have a very, very small 
team, but the girls who are 
competing are doing a super 
job." She goes on to explain 
that there have been many 
situations where someone 
has taken first place, but 
that there are just not 
enough girls in each event to 
take 2nd, 3rd, and 4th 
places, which will give the 
team the strength and depth 
needed to win. 

So far this season there 
have been many individual 
winners. Sophomore Angle, 
Hayden has come up with 

the 440 relay team, 
consisting of Betty and 
Bonnie Carrion. Evelyn 
Fowlkes and Angle Hayden 
has also shown two firsts. 

The field events are also a 
strong part of the team. 
Sophomore shot puter Sue 
Frankewich has achieved 
both first and second places, 
whereas long jumper Emma

Trackmen, not getting it together' 

"Just not getting things 
together," states track 
coach Mr. Don Kemp. Coach 
Kemp was referring to this 
year's team and its 16-14 
record. Although the record 
doesn't show it. this year's 
team has some record- 
breakers and some sectional 

The record breakers of 
this year's team are senior 
Derek Paris and sophomore 
Tim Lee. Paris broke the 
record Saturday, April 26, in 
the discus throw while Lee 
broke the school record in 
the 880-yard run and also 
has the city's best time thus 

Other city placers are Jeff 
Heller and John Stiffler in 
the pole vault, tied for 
fourth; John Bright in the 


6675 B/ufffon Rd. 


100-yard dash, fifth; and the 
mile relay team, seventh in 
Fort Wayne. 

Coach Kemp states that 
"the team should be ready 
to go at sectionals." He 
expects the events that 
Elmhurst will go the 
farthest in are the pole 
vault, 220. half-mile and 

One of the problems for 
this year's track team is 

depth. The team has had a 
hard time finding more 
depth to improve both the 
varsity and the reserve 
squads. Sickness and injury 
have taken their toll on this 
year's team but haven't hit 
as severely as other years. 

The team is also coached 
by former state champion 
runner Mr. Dave Easterline 
and Mr. Carter Lohr.

Twelve EHS students were 
recognized May 18 by Tri-State 
College of Angola for their winning 
entries in the eighth annual drafting 
and design competition sponsored 
by the college last February. 

In addition to the twelve honored, 
Elmhurst was cited as the second 
place winning high school in Allen 
County in this competition, the first 
being Homestead. 

Winning as the school's highest 
entry was senior Jeff Allen. 

Receiving high honorable mention 
were sophomores Laura Bowen, 
Kevin Koehl, Paul Meredith, Mark 
Miller. Greg Roth, junior Mark 

Hershberger, and senior Ken 

High favorable consideration 
went to sophomore Carey Marks, 
juniors Bryan Jones. Kevin 
Kirkpatrick, and senior Bill Frank. 

Commenting on Elmhurst's 
outstanding showing in the 
competition, drafting instructor Mr. 
James Lambert explained, "We had 
16 entries and 12 winners; I think 
this is a fine showing. Besides 
receiving certificates for their 
entries, these students were 
introduced to the Tri-State College 
and what it has to offer them in the 
area of drafting and design. 

Highlighting the 1975 Athletic 
Banquet in the EHS cafeteria May 
20 was the presentation of the 
coveted blanket award. 

This year the blanket was 
awarded to three seniors as 
outstanding athletes during their 
careers at Elmhurst. The three are 
Dave Boyer, Dave Campbell, and 
Bonnie Carrion. Bonnie is the first 
female in Elmhursfs history to earn 
the blanket. 

Teachers' jobs changed 

Due to a decrease in the number of 
enrollments for the 1975-76 school 
year, the Fort Wayne School Board 
has been forced to make many 
cutbacks in teaching staffs 
throughout the entire city. 

These cutbacks, affecting many 
teachers in Fort Wayne, will also 
affect six teachers here at Elmhurst 
High School. These will include Mr. 
Charles Beck, mathematics, and Mr. 
Dave Esterline and Mr. Richard 
Mattix from the social studies 
department. Also, Mr. Allen Haller, 
science. Miss Susan Highfill, 
English, and Mr. James Schroeder 

from the DE and business 
department will be departing. These 
teachers will then be assigned to 
other secondary schools in the Fort 
Wayne area that are in need of new 
I teachers. However, as of yet, none of 
'these people know where they will be 
transferred to next year, but are 
expecting to find out what new 
destination will be theirs sometime 
in August. 

According to Assistant Principal 
Mr. Robert Miller, Elmhurst will be 
receiving no new teachers for next 
year and will lose none through 

Besides the blanket award 
athletes were recognized with 
awards for outstanding performance 
in the individual sports events. 

Recognized as the most 
outstanding athletes were: Paul 
Stevens, cross country; Greg 
Hershberger, boys' temiis; Dave

and offensive lineman; Curtis 
Underwood, defensive back; and Ed 
Peters, offensive back. 

The athletes with the best mental

The annual home economics fashion show 
took pliice in the cafeteria after school 
Thursday. May 22. The girls from the sewing 
classes modeled a variety of outfits including 
skirts, jackets, pant suits, prom dresses, 
shorts, and halters. All the girls participated 
by modeling a garment that they made in 
class or working on the decorations. 

■'The purposes of the fashion show were to 
promote public relations to show parents and 
students what the classes do, and to create 
an interest in the home economics 
department," stated Mrs, Roma Jean 
Bradburn. home ec teacher and sponsor of 
the show. 

Families and the student body of

open lunch periods, installation of 
Coke machines and the opening of

like to see the council gain more 
voice in matters which concern the 
student body. 

Dave ChrzBD and Bill McCombs 
are running on the same ticket for 
president and vice-president, 
respectively. They feel they are as

Claudia Johnson was social 
chairperson of Che junior class. "1 
wasn't in student council in junior 
high, but as social chairperson this 
year I realized how much I was 
missing. She is an active member in

conducted to give high school 
students a learning experience in

MIKE MA URER WON hin bid (or the vice-pKsidency. 

The student council officers for 
next year have been elected and 
their work has already begun for 
the 75-76 school year, 

The winners are Tom Sonday as 
president, Mike Maurer as vice- 
president, and Claudia Johnson as 
secretary -treasurer. So far their 
ideas and objectives seem 
compatible, and they are able to 
start working together on them. 
Council plans to change 

The new officers also have some 
constitutional and structural 
changes in mind which they're 
starting on. They want to get 
students running for 

representatives that are really 
serious about being involved in 
student council. Tom has 
suggested having each candidate 
write down why he is running and 
is thinking about going as far as 
having a screening committee. 
Mike wants the constitution to I 

clarify who should vote for officers. 
He is confident that if they can get 
going now. the council should be off 
to a great year. 

Tom Sonday is now a junior. He 
has been in student council the last 
two years and is vice-president of 
the junior class. He ran for the 
office because he felt he was 
qualified, and he thought it would 
be something he'd like to do. There 
were things he wanted to see 
changed that no one else had talked 
about. He was not overly surprised 
that he won, Tom felt that he went 
into the campaign having as good a 
chance as anyone else and he was 
pleased that the campaign was 
clean and there were no hard 

Sonday will strengthen council 

Tom does not envision his 
presidential duties to be quite the 
same as those assumed by past 
presidents. He doesn't want to 
make all the proposals himself, but 
he wants the representatives to 
bring up bills and be more active 
themselves. He will keep the 
student council running, make sure 
the representatives are doing their 
job, and reinstate parliamentary 
procedure. He might even have a 
parliamentarian installed who 
would make sure the council 
members follow parliamentary 

Tom is directing his energy 
toward all sorts of plans: more 
dances, more social events, a dance 
marathon, spring day, penny 
arcade, mini-courses, open lunch 
mods, and a fund-raising 

competition between the city 
schools. These are all things he 
expects will strengthen student 
council and put it on an even keel 
with the councils in other high 
schools. When asked how Elmhurst 
compares to other schools, Tom 
said, "Elmhurst is basically the 
same as any other school. We have 
the same material to work with, but 
maybe not as much motivation as, 
say, Snider. But we're getting

Subscriptions still available 

The first publication of the Elmhurst 
Advance will be distributed to all students 
attending EHS and will be available during 
homeroom period this morning. 

The following issues of the Advance will be 
sold at the regular price. Subscriptions to the 
newspaper and yearbook will continue to be 
taken during lunch mods this week in the 
cafeteria. The package deal may be 
purchased for SU with S3.50 for the 
newspaper and 89 for the year book. 

By subscribing to the Advance students 
will also have a chance to win one of five all- 
season athletic tickets or 1975-76 yearbooks. 
Drawings will be made in homerooms with 
the highest number of student subscriptions 
to the Advance later in the monjh. 

The pubLcations department wishes to 
thank the athletic department for the 
donation of the five aU-season athletic 

Rah-Rahs have buny summer 

Aside from their school year duties both 
varsity and reserve cheerleaders were kept 
busy with fund raising and cheerleading 
camp activities this past summer. 

Members of both squads traveled to 
Indiana University, Bloomington, Aug. 4 for 
a five day cheerleading cLnic, Sponsored by 
the Universal Cheerleaders Association, the 
nine girls were part of 450 girls participating 
in the workshop. Daily classes during the 
UCA clinic included cheers, pom pom 
routines, gymnastics, private coaching and 
squad evaluations. Both squads received 
superior ratings during daily evaluations. 

Money-making projects were another time- 
consuming activity this summer for the EHS 
cheerleaders. The squads helped to construct 
a float sponsored by May Stone and Sand. 
Inc.. for the Three Rivers Festival, and in 
turn raised S200 for their fund. The group 
also sponsored a car wash and garage sale in 
mid-July that brought in approximately SlOO 
to be used towards letter jackets and 
cheerleading supplies for the squads this 

Northside sponsors first dance 

A successful dance sponsored by the 
senior class of North Side attracted many 
Trojans to join in after the first football 
game of the season Aug. 29. The dance, in the 
North Side cafeteria, featured "Society" 
providing the tunes. 

Yearbooks to be here soon 

The '74-'75 edition of the Anlibrum is due 
to arrive at Elmhurst Sept. 15. Distribution 
to students receiving a yearbook will be 
made immediately upon receipt. 

Four study government procedures 

This past summer, four seniors 
represented Elmhurst at Girls' and 
Boys' State. Melissa Hunter, 
Claudia Johnson, Betsy Barber and 
Les Novitsky were the Trojan 

"It was really fun. When I got 
there at first, I didn't think I'd like 
it," commented Melissa, '"but once I 
got to know some of the different 
people, and what was going on - I 
loved it!" 

Girls' and Boys' State takes place 
at two different times, but uses the 
same major idea. A mock 
government with the participants 
running for government offices ■ 
State, local, etc. 

If the participant decides to run 
for a State office, they are given a 

party, such as Federalist 
Nationalist, and are required to give 
speeches with audiences of up to 

All participants used "rea 
voting machines. Only one of the 
three female participants from 
Elmhurst was elected into office. 
Betsy Barber served as a 
Representative in the House, but 
both Melissa and Claudia failed in 
their attempts to capture Secretary 
of State and Senate, respectively. 

Senior Les Novitsky was the only 
male representative from Elmhurst 
at State. Les described Boys' State 
as being "a lot of fun, very 
worthwhile, and a real lesson in how 
our government works. ' '

fficers- He anticipates advantages 
n Claudia's good ideas and Mike's 
iperience and knack for getting 
things across to people. 
Maurer queatione role of council 

Mike Maurer has been a member 
gi student council for the last two 
..jars and was president of his 
sophomore class. He became 
interested in running for student 
council vice-president because he 
(eels he gets along with all sorts of 
pj,ople and thinks he could be 

of next year s sti 

helpful by presenting the varied 
opinions of the students and by 
acting as a mediator between the 
student body, the council, the 
representatives and the officers. 
Mike has a theory about next 
year. He calculates that '75-'7G 
should be the best year for the 
student council because "Last year 
was a building year. This year used 
last years ideas and knowledge 
and worked on them, and next year 
we should be able to get it 
together." The hard working 
representatives and their 
determination not to back down 
when things are going badly should 
help according to Mike. He also has 
confidence in Tom as president 
because "Tom is a thinker and a 
speaker. He thinks ahead, thinks 
fast. is good with the 
administration, and has the ability 
to do an above average job. " 

Mike has noted some 
uncertainty concerning the role of 
the council. He asks whether 
student council is supposed to get 
into the school board and work on 
big projects or concentrate on the 
little things within the school. 
Mike has decided that there should 
be a compromise. The council 
should get involved with the 
school's curriculum, and things 
that would please the students 
such as the opening of the 
courtyard. As for his own job. Mike 
will work to keep personality 
conflicts out of the council, guide 
the council, help set policy, and 
find out what the students want. 

Johnson conrident of new officers 

Claudia Johnson wasn't in 
student council in junior high 
because it was the popular people 
she felt who then were involved. 
This year she decided she wanted 

to get r 

; involved in the school 

and so she became social chairman 
of the junior class. She found that 
she enjoyed having some 
responsibility for what happens in 
the school, knowing what was 
going on and having some fun. So 
now she'll be secretary- treasurer of 
the student council which, besides 
taking attendance and the minutes, 
will require her to mediate between 
the officers and the student body 
and contribute her suggestions to 
council decisions and policies. 

Claudia feels Tom's main asset is 
that he has a lot of interest in the 
student body. In addition she 
appreciates his good ideas, his skill 
at organizing and his ability to 
keep from letting things get him 
down. Claudia is confident that the 
three officers will be able to work 
closely together, which she says is 
something valuable to the student 
council. She is impressed with the 
amount of planning that they've 
already done and pointed this out 
with the fact that, even at the 
prom. Tom was taking time out to 
discuss with her the project of 
boosting faculty interest in a day of 
mini-courses nest year.

Highlighting a very successful 
'7.5 prom, Ansa Kunnari, escorted 
by Greg Nowak. was crowned this 
year's prom queen by last year's 
queen, Sue Male, Saturday, May 

With around 100 couples in 
attendance for the dance, Ansa was 
honored by her feUow students 
atop the Sheraton hotel as queen, 
to which Ansa responded that it 
felt "very great that so many 
people like me. " 

has had to adapt lo a t 




Midway through the dance and 
music of the Teardrops, the 
decision was announced by Tom 
Sonday to the final seven girls. 

Ansa meetfl "biggys" 

Ansa is Elmhurst's foreign 
exchange student from Finland, 
and was eventually introduced to 
the "biggy" events at Elmhurat. 
including the prom. In reaction to 
the prom, Ansa felt it was perhaps 
"too expensive, but very nice that 
once a year guys can ask somebody 
out. " 

After dinner, the couples were 
greeted with a variety of slow and 
fast music by the Teardrops. Ansa 
loves to dance, as it is her favorite 
thing to do, It struck Ansa as 
amusing that older people in the 
U.S. dance more often than the 
younger, which is opposite of 
Finland. In Finland, teenagers 
generally find time to dance every 
weekend, rather than a movie or 
party. Ansa likes to waltz, but 
prefers fast dances. However, she 
finds American fast dancing rather 
"boring, "not quite like the tango. 

"Who really knew me?" 

Ansa's first reaction when she 
discovered she was one of the prom 
court was one of surprise. "Who 
really knew me?" she wondered. 
After the homeroom vote for the 
queen, it was evident much of 
Elmhurst knew of her. 

There is nothing really like the 
prom in Finland, The only thing 
close to it is the last day as a senior 
This is an important occasion, and 
seniors take the time to dress up 
and recognize their last day- 
Queen comments on prom 

Ansa wondered if maybe the 
prom should be held at school, as it 
once was at Elmhurst. She also 
commented on the lack of any 
organized after-prom, which manj 
people were asking about. 

Tradition maintains that the 
reigning queen crown the new 
queen each year. However. Ansa 
didn't think she could make it back 
to watch her successor be named 
The expense to travel back to Fort 
Wayne would be too great, and 
someone else will have to do the 

The new queen feels very 
honored and happy that she was 
chosen. Ansa remarked that each 
day she realizes the importance of 
the prom more and more. Ansa 
pointed out that to her, "It isn't 
the most important thing. It 
doesn't mean I am any better than 
anyone else." After the year is 
over, however. Ansa will have yet 
another event and experience to 
take back with her to Finland, 
where she will remember it for a 
long time to come.

The Elmhurst Trojans 
dropped their first loss of 
the season to Northrop in 
the annual jamboree on 
August 23, as the Bruins 
scored 2 1 points to the 
Trojans 6. Elmhurst was one 
of five teams that combined 
to form the visitors team 
which held on to win 50-47. 

The jamboree was 
comprised of five games, 
each of which consisted of 

two 12 minute quarters. 

The first Elmhurst 
possession resulted in the 
only bright spot for the 
Trojans as junior Curtis 
Paschall slipped around the 
right side of the Une and out 
ran all defenders on an 82 
yard race to the pnd zone 
and gave Elmhurst a 6-0 
lead. The lead was short 
lived however, as Northrop 
took the following kickoff 
and traveled 52 yards for the 
first Northrop score. 
Elmhurst was unable to 
move the ball against the 
tough Northrop defense, and 

couldn't seem to stop the 
. Bruins. The Bruins' Leroy 
iMcGraw who scored all 
three of the Northrop TD's 
scored his second on a 75 
' yard run around the left side 
and his third on a 13 yard 
run to cap off a 60 yard

Tale Spinnin' is yet another Gxtonsion 
of Wejither Roport'fi unique and int«nse 
talent. Characteristically, the album 
relies heavily on rhythms, but never loses 
its intricate and highly emotional essence. 
Most of the music was composed to 
reflect the high energy and strong spirit 
of street celebrations and festivals. The 
song and dance atmosphere is captured 
well in such pieces as "Man in the Green 
Shirt"and "Badia". 

Although the use of rhythms is 
extensive, the album is at the same time 
melodious, particularly in the case of 
many of saxophonist Wayne Shorter's 
solos. In general, the performance on the 
record is exceptional ond the composition 
is equally fine. 

Listening to Tale Spinnin ' is an 
experience for both the intellect and the 
emotions. Keyboardist-composer Josef 
Zawinul says, "Our music is the reflection

Live at Montreoux '74 

Silent Tongues is Cecil Taylor's first 
release in 16 years, and had ex-Columbia 

Records executive Olive Davis not bought 
out the British Arista-Freedom label, 
even this album might have been kept 
from the pubhc. Fortunately, however, it 
wasn't and pianist Taylor presents on the 
record one of the most complex and 
powerful solo keyboard efforts in that 15 
year span, 

Taylor regards the piano as a 
percussion, as opposed to a stringed, 
instrument. Consequently the music is 
oggressive and often atonal. In this 
regard, the music draws a fine Lne 
between jozz and modernist classical: the 
composition is at times reminiscent of 
Chick Coreo's improvisations, at others, 
the works of composer Charles Ives. 

Silent Tongues is a five movement 
piece, followed by two variations on 
themes from the movements. The first, 
"Abyss " is a powerful composition, built 
on scale runs and tone clusters, and 
resolving itself to more soothing tones in 
the second movement '"Petals and 

Taylors album, is to be sure, a truly 
artistic achievement; however, those 
accustomed to more conventional 
melodies may find the record hard 
listening. But. those who are used to a 
more avant-garde form of music or those 
looking tor something new and exciting 
will find Silent Tongues well worth their 

Jinior grads forfeit honors 

There are ten students at 
Elmhurst who at the end of this year 
are graduating after attending only 
six semesters of high school. The 
question has been raised as to 
whether those students should be 
considered juniors or seniors. 

This is an important question, for 
it seems that this year those early- 
graduation students are not 
considered either one. They have 
completed their last year of high 
school not knowing to which class 
they belong. 

But is seems that there already 
has been a decision made; only 
nobody knew about it. Principal 
Horstmeyer, at least, considers 
these students juniors who are 
simply graduating at the end of 
their junior year. The error has been 
made already though, and the 
students did miss out on some of the 
benefits juniors have. For instance, 
none of the junior girls who are 
graduating were included in the list 
of prospective prom queens. 

It is a shame that these students 
cannot he considered seniors, for 
they have worked as hard to 
graduate as four year students have. 

But Indiana state law requires 
that to graduate a senior, the 
student must attend eight 
semesters of high school. So, in 
order to reap the benefits, one must 

I just follow the rules. 

Junior graduates are a speciaj 
group of students. They have 
received permission to graduate 
with only six semesters. This is 
achieved by filling out a form which 
has to be okayed by the stau 
department of education. 

There are many good reasons for 
students to graduate early. One, a 
student may be one or two years 
older than his classmates and may 
wish to graduate with those his own 
age. Two, the student may need to 
get into college early. And thre^the 
student may be more mature and 
held back in high school. But junior 
graduation is not for everybody .„ 
primarily because the senior year is 

But the decision is, and should be, 
left up to the student and his family 
They should know all the 
advantages and disadvantages, and 
then decide. If they choose to 
graduate early, then they are 
excluded from some of the big 
awards, namely valedictorian and 
salutatorian, no matter whether 
their grade point average is higher 
than anyone else's or not. 

But the point is, hopefully, if 
early grads are considered juniors 
in theory, they will be considered 
juniors in practice. 

Bihe routes 

If those same feet that 
met the challenge of the 
Hunger Walk and the 
March of Dimes 
Bikeathon are yearning 
for a new and patriotic 
experience, they can 
consider this idea: as part 
of the Bicentennial 
observance, a group 
referring to itself as the 
Bikecentennial is 
sponsoring a 4100-mile 
Trans-America Bicycle 

The trip from Astoria. 
Oregon, to Williamsburg, 
Virginia, is expected to 
take approximately 70 or 
80 days. Cyclists will 
travel in groups of eight, 
and will be accompanied 
by a trained leader. 

The entire trip should 
cost about S400. This 
includes meals, overnight 
lodging, repairs, insur- 
ance, and more. 
Traffic should not pose 

a problem on this cross- 
country ride since cyclists 
will be traveUng on back 
roads that usually carry 
less than ten cars per 
hour. Each cyclist will 
cover 40 to 60 miles a day 
through the countryside. 

Fort Wayne builds trail 

Fort Wayne cyclers 
who do a lot of pedaling 
through the city and into 
the north part of town 
may be glad to learn that 
a three-mile bike trail is 
being laid from Freimann 
Square to City Utilities 

After finding through a 
survey that bicycling was 
Fort Wayne's most 
popular activity, the city 
government started work 
on a local version of the 
bike routes in other cities. 
Plans for trails along all 
of the three rivers are 
under consideration for 
eventual construction. 

Work on the present 
cycle project is already 
underway, but the trail 
will not be absolutely 
complete until next 
summer. Part of it will be 
along roadways. The rest, 
for instance near the 
bypass, will be asphalted 
off street. 

Bicycles more popular, 
ten-speeds available 

Bicycling has ceased to be an activity 
just for youngsters. The two-wheel sport 
has found a place among older 
generations. In fact, more bikes are being 
sold to adults these days than to children. 

People everywhere 
are taking note of the 
bike craze as bikeways 
are constructed along 
highways on the west 
coast, on old railroad 
beds in Wisconsin, and 
on downtown streets in 
Boston and Chicago. 
But probably the most 
attention on the bicycle 
boom is from the bi- 

cycle manufacturers and dealers. 

Ten-speed bicycles are in great 
demand, and in Fort Wayne 
twelve stores sell a combined 
variety of brands. 

"Consumer Reports" and a 
salesman at Fort Wayne Bicycle 
agree that Fuji is among the best 
of the ten-speeds whether for 
riding cross-country or through 
town. Lightness accompanied by 
ruggedness is a sign of a quality 
bike and a top model Fuji weighs 
in at 25 pounds. But a top model 
Fuji also costs from $320 up. Fuji 
bikes a couple of notches down in 
price at around $200 weigh 
around 30 pounds, which is still 
judged as a good weight. 

Motobecane makes bikes on a 
par with Fuji and with most of 
the same qualifications. Quick 
release wheels, auxiliary brake 
levers, frame pumps, and brake- 
release devices are some things 
that real bike fans look for when 
buying. Peugoit, Browning, 
Nashiki. Ross, and Crystal are 
other names in ten-speeds 
available in Fort Wayne. And 
Schwinn, which is sold just about 
everywhere, makes the Le Tours 
and the Voyager II as two better 
examples of its ten-speeds.

Sophomore Tim Lee did it 
again by breaking another 
school record of 1:55.3 in the 
ogO. The old record was set 
by Tim in the Sectional meet 
j^^ay 15. Tim broke his own 
record with a 1:54.2 at 
[Northrop May 22 in the 
Hegional meet. By winning 
the 880-yard run, Tim 
travels to the state finals in 
Indianapolis on May 31. 

Coach Don Kemp stated 
that he is hoping Tim can 
cut another one and a half 
seconds off his new record 
when he travels to State. 
The reason for this is that 
two juniors will go to State 
from other schools, and both 
have run faster than 1:54.2. 
Coach Kemp beUeves that if 
and when Tim runs a 1:52 
next week, he could have a 
\^ry good chance of coming 

home with the first gold 
medal in Elmhurst's 

Another runner went to 
Regionals last week and 
represented Elmhurst. Brad 
Smith participated in the 
100-yard dash. 
Unfortunately, Brad was 
forced to run with one ankle 
taped, and Coach Kemp 
stated, "It definitely slowed 
him down with a bad start 
from the blocks." Brad 
placed seventh in the finals 

and only the top five go into 
state competition. 

Next year's track and 
field team will be aided by 14 
returning lettermen and 
incoming sophomores from 
Portage and Kekionga. 
Among these fifteen 
returning lettermen are Lee 
and Smith, along with Jeff 
Heller, Chad Cline, Jim 
Freygang, John Stiffler, 
Doug Peters. Rick Knuth, 
Bob Levy, Dave Lewis, and 
Ernie Starks

What happens when 
rock's two biggest 
"intellectuals" get together 
to make an album? 
Apparently not much, if No 
Pussyfooting is any 
indication. Although Fripp 
and Eno have managed 
previously to do justice to 
their immense talents, 
(Fripp's King Crimson 
episodes in particular), this 
album comes off as a farce. 

The first side of the 
album, as the second side, is 
only one number. "The 
Heavenly Music 

Corporation" opens with an 
Eastern sounding, sitarish 
type melody. However, if 
the music is supposed to 
remind us of heaven, it only 
succeeds in conjuring up 
visions of a B-grade sci-fi 
movie. Secondly, the song, 
as in "Swastika Girls" on 
side two. lacks percussion, 
progression and depth. 
Granted that percussion is 

not always a necessary 
element of music, in this 
record the Gibson Les Paul, 
the Fripp Pedalboard and 
two modified Revox A77 
tape recorders are not 
enough, therefore causing 
the lack of depth. The lack of 
progression further 
complicates things. What 
may only be a thirteen or 
fourteen minute song 
becomes interminable due to 
the monotony of the 

No Pussyfooting is, to say 
the least, a bizarre album, 
and to some people it may be 
extraordinarily interesting -- || 
some people have even 
found it relaxing, but as a 
piece of music, the album 
simply doesn't make it and 
is not worth paying the 
import price for.

Answer no to senior uotes 

by MarilyDD Scherer 

This past Student CouncU 
election brought about 
somewhat of a controversy. 
The seniors at Elmhurst 
were permitted to vote for 
president, vice-president, 
and secretary of the student 
council. The council officers 
elected will preside in the '75 
-'76 year. _, 

The seniors argue, "We 
know the juniors as well as, 
(if not better than,) the 
sophomores." The seniors 
are also staunch on the idea 
that "we know what is best 
for the Student Council, " 

Who are the seniors 
trying to kid? Next year's 
student council will serve 
the students attending 
school next year. The '76 
graduates are not involved.

will not be represented, and 
therefore, should not be 
granted voting privileges. 

The decision of senior 
votes is far from a small 
decision. Three-hundred and 
seventy-eight students can 
easily sway a vote from one 
candidate to another. Is it 
fair to the candidates to let a 
group of uninvolved people 

To make things worse, 
only part of the senior body 
voted, a result of mass 
confusion on a Wednesday 
"homeroom" session. 

Next year the demand will 
most probably be: no senior 
vote. Hopefully, next year's 
seniors will see the issue in 
the same light as they did in 
their junior year.

practice luith optimistic uieiu 

With the new school year 
comes new seasons for our 
tennis and cross country 
teams. With these new 
seasons comes great 
optimism from both of their 

Last year was Coach 
Robert Horn's first year as 
tennis coach. He led the 
netmen to a dismal 2-12 

mark with Wayne and 
Southside as Elmhurst's 
only victims. The 75-76 year 
will be a rebuilding year 
with a near even number of 
sophomores, juniors, and 
seniors. Even though this 
year will be a rebuilding 
season, a .500 record is 
within the netmen's grasp. 
The members of this year's 

cross country team will have 
their work cut out for them 
this season if they hope to 
improve on last year's 16-5-1 
record. Coach Carter Lohr 
cited seniors Dave Lewis 
and Rick Knuth along with 
juniors Jim Freygang and 
Tim Lee as the mainstays of 
his lineup. The cross country 
team will lose just one 
varsity runner from last 
year's team which will be 
very helpful in their bid for 
the SAC title. 

The outlooks for this 
year's tennis and cross 
country teams are 

promising. An SAC title is 
very possible for the harriers 
while the netmen have an 
outside shot at winning the 
SAC title in tennis.

Trojans aduance in sectionals 


Behind the brilliant pitching of 
junior Terry Smith and the slugging 
of Brian Russell, the EHS baseball 
team posted a 2-0 victory over 
Homestead in first round sectional 
action at Columbia City. 

Smith pitched three-hit ball while 
striking out 14 batters which tied 
senior Lynn Brown's record for 
most strike-outs in a game. Terry 
still has not lost a game this year 
and owns a 9-0 record thus far. 

The Big Red broke the scoreless 
tie when Brian Russell unleashed a 
350 ft. drive over the right field 
fence which gave the Trojans all the 
runs they needed. It appeared that 
the Trojans were in trouble in the 
bottom of the sixth when 
Homestead loaded the bases with 
nobody out. Smith then struck the 
next batter and Elmhurst came up 
with an inning ending doubleplay to 
preserve Terry's shutout. 

BrowD taken to hospital 

Lynn Brown was taken to the 
hospital for X-rays of his left thumb, 
playing first base, Brown was 
fielding a low throw when the ball 
skidded in the dirt and hit his 
thumb. He was immediately taken 
to Fort Wayne and is a doubtful 
starter for todays game. 
Smith shuts out Norwell 

A trio of Elmhurst pitchers 

get it Where your favorite request 
on ! is just a phone call away 


checked the Knights offense by 
giving up only two hits. Junior 
Terry Smith shutout Norwell for the 
first three innings while senior Lynn 
Brown shutout the Knights during 
the fourth and fifth innings. 
Norwell's only run came off senior 
Dave Campbell. The Trojans 
offensive punch was a long double 
hit over the head of Norwell's left 
fielder by junior Stan Sorgen. 

One week ago last Saturday, the 
Big Red travelled to Woodlan to 
take on the Warriors at their home 
diamond. Under a blazing hot sun, 
Terry Smith threw a one-hit shutout 
while striking out 14 batters. 

A single up the middle by Phil 
Gutman with runners on first and 
second scored the tie breaking and 
winning run as the Big Red went on 
to post a 3-2 extra winning victory.

At the beginning of the 
school year at Elmhurst, it 
is not uncommon to hear 
announcements all day long 
letting students know when 
and where try-outs for the 
school play will be held. 
Soon these little P. A. 
tidbits stop, and no one 
thinks about the play again 
until tickets go on sale. 
Right? There is a certain 
group of people at EHS who 
would heartily disagree with 

Every night at 6 p.m., a 
small group gathers in the 
school gym to practice for 
■■See How They Run." This 
three-act comedy is, 
according to Mr. Don Goss, 
"a delightful romp through 
an English vicarage 
involving an American 
actress (Nancy Beadie) who 
is married to Reverend Toop 
(John Silletto), an English 
minister, when she happens 
to meet an actor friend (Tom 
Young) who is now in the 
Air Force stationed in 
England. While the actor 
and actress are renewing 
their friendship at the 

theatre, the vicar is held up 
by a Russian spy (Larry 
Daugherty) who takes his 
clothes and assumes the 
disguise of the Reverend. 
The real Reverend is left 
unconscious in the closet. A 
search is on for the spy. 

"Miss Skillon (Melissa

all the excitement because 
she is totally intoxicated

■'The bishop (Allen Shaw) 
arrives to find his niece, the 
actress, is not sure who she 
is married to, and two men 
are both calling themselves 
Reverend Humphrey (Goeff 
Sills). The English cop (Mat 
Tyler) bobs in to look for the 
minister who is disguised as 
the spy and begins to bicker 
with the vicars. The running 
is, continuous 

and so are the laughs in this 
who-dun-it comedy." 

When asked how she felt 
about the play, senior 

Melissa Hunter said, "I love 
it! The cast and crew get 
along really well so practice 
never gets to be a drag. 
There are always new things 
to add to the characters 
which helps to make the 
three and a half hours a

Sarah Stewart.

by Nancy Beadie 

It's been quite a summer. You really enjoyed the free 
time, the parties, the trips, and the sun. Of course, now i 
time for school again. (What's this, the thirteenth time?) 
The only good thing about stepping back through those 
classroom doors is the chance to see how people have 
changed, what they're like now, and how they are, "So" it's 
one of those first few days and you're e-xcitedly listening to 
a rehash of a trip to CaUfornia. laughing when it coincides 
with your own trip to Florida or wondering why the girl 
down the aisle dresses like that. 1 1 mean she always seemed 
normal before!) or you're talking to someone you haven't 
talked to since grade school, when the teacher gets out some 
papers which are the signal for that dreaded thing, a seating 

Assigned seats. Yech! Nothing makes me madder. No 
offense to my other A and B last name friends, but I'm 
really getting tired of seeing you. I mean, since grade 
school, I've sat next to you, been in line next to you, had 
homeroom with you, and gone to assemblies with you. I'm 
just not that fond of the idea of seeing you and your same 
old nervous habits for another whole year. Ah, you may 
think this a minor complaint, but think of it this way. The 
teachers and the administration are trying to structure our 
social background. Our horizons are being Umited because 
we're restricted to the A's and the B's. 

Now. alphabetical order seating is definitely revoltmg, 
but assigned seating of any kind upsets me. I remember in 
junior high we had assigned seats in the lunchroom. Now 
that was too much. It's bad enough to go to the same 
building, have the same classes, same schedule, same 
rooms, and same things to do every day, but to see and talli 
to the exact same people all day every day is monotony ai 
its worst. So come on, give me some elbow room. Let me 
make my own associates. Leave my seat alone! ! 

Euthanasia, studeng 

To the editor: 

Often during the last few 
months, the topic of 
euthanasia has come up in 
the news and in classroom 
discussions. There are many 
ways of looking at the 
situation, and I'd like to 
present one side of the story. 

Euthanasia, which is 
defined as "an easy death or 
means of inducing one"' may 
be one of the best things 
that can happen to the 
terminally ill patient. 
Unfortunately, turning off a 
respirator or stopping life- 
prolonging medication is 
still considered homicide. 
So. a person is left on a 
machine that is taking care 
of his or her body functions 
indefinitely or until even the 
machine can no longer help. 

Crushed Limestone 

Sand - Gravel 


Is it fair to prolong a life 
that would end if it weren't 
for the help of man-made 
machines? Is it right to keep 
a person physically alive 
when there is absolutely NO 
hope for survival? I don't 
think it is. I feel that if a 
doctor is requested to turn 
off a machine, he should be 
legally able to do so. I think 
that there should be other 
uninvolved persons in on the 
decision making, though. 
Perhaps the way to do it 
would be for the family of 
the patient involved to go to 
the doctor handling the case. 
Then he should take the case 
to a committee of doctors 
who would then go over 
everything concerned with 
him or her. This committee 
then should present the 
report to the family with the 

final decision, whether or 
not to disconnect the 
machine, included. This 
way, it could be made sure 
that any family with a 
suffering member in it could 
simply say "stop" and end 
someone's life. But it would 
help families that cannot 
afford to keep someone with 
no hope of ever regaining 
consciousness on a machine.

John Sinks, they sent in their 
applications. After being accepted 
into the seminar, they traveled to 
Terre Haute for the weeks of June 

During their stay at I.S.U.. the 
girls attended classes and lectures 
during the morning and afternoon, 
in order to learn about the different 
types of computers and their uses. 
They were also allowed to use the 
terminal and key punchers. 

Aside from their classes they 
visited Eli Lilly and Columbia 
Records Corporations, touring their 
computer set-ups. 

Both girls had a good time, met 
many new people from different 
states, and felt they had learned a 
lot from this seminar.

Seven enter Merit semifinals 

by Marty Miller 

Principal Richard Horstmeyer 
has announced that seven Elmhurst 
students are semifinalists in this 
year's National Merit Scholarship 
program. The seven are Dave 
Beutler, Wes Byrne, Matt Gary, 
Yvette Morrill, Verne Myers, Tom 
Sunday, and Don Wenger. 

These seniors are among 15,000 
who will continue in the competition 
for about 3800 merit scholarships to 

be awarded next spring. 

The semifinaUsts were among 
over one million students who 
entered the Merit Program by 
taking the PSAT (Preliminary 
Scholastic Aptitude Test) last year.

Wenger. and Verne Myers, 

To continue in the competition, 
semifinaUsts may advance to the 
finalist position by receiving 
recommendations from Mr. 
Horstmeyer, presenting school 
records that show high academic 
standing, and confirming their high 
PSAT scores with equally high 
scores on their SAT (Scholastic 
Aptitude Test). Over 90% of the 
semifinalists are expected to qualify 
a9 finalists and to receive 
certificates of merit next February. 

Every finalist competes for one of 
the 1000 National Merit scholar- 
ships, valued at $1000. These 
scholarships are one-time awards 
sponsored by national businesses 
and industries. 

Some finalists may qualify for one 
of the 2800 4-year Merit Scholar- 
ships which offer the wirmers up to 
$1500 during each of the four years 
of college.

twenty-first that the National Merit 
Scholarship Corporation has 
conducted since 1956. In the 20 
Merit Programs completed to date, 
over 41,800 students have won

Ft. Knox trip reveals 
'truth' about ROTC 


He was interested in the program, 
but after getting a glimpse of it up 
close, he changed his mind, because 
he says, "they treat those guys like 
animals there." 

Senior Tom Sonday used to be 
interested in what the ROTC 
program could do for him. So, when 
ROTC announced a competition for 
participation in a "Student Leader- 
ship Week" in Fort Knox, 
Kentucky, he decided to apply. 
First, he had to be chosen by his 
school, but since no one else applied 
at Elmhurst, that step of the 
apphcation was easy. Then Tom had 
to write a letter explaining why he 
wanted to participate in the four- 
day program. Getting past that 
stage, Tom was ready to learn about 
officers' careers, along with 68 other 
high school students. 

Instead of being pleased by what 
he saw during his stay in Fort Knox 
and becoming anxious to enter 
ROTC, Tom was presented with 
enough information to make him 
decide dead against getting involved 
with ROTC. Tom said he learned the 
truth about the program and wasn't 
pleased with it. Tom went around 
with a colonel, and since this colonel 
was an important man on the base, 
he had a chauffeur. When Tom 

asked the driver about his feelings 
concerning ROTC, the driver 
answered that he had it all right 
because he was a driver, but on the 
whole it was a bad deal. Tom said 
the driver "really cut down ROTC." 
Graduates of ROTC are 
automatically second lieutenants 
and, according to the driver, expect 
other men to snap at their 
command, Tom left with the 
impression that ROTC officers were 
not looked upon favorably by the 
enlisted men. 

Another incident which had an 
unfavorable effect on Tom was when 
the group was watching a target 
practice and the drill sergeant, if he 
saw a shooter miss the target, 
kicked the man. Tom went on to say, 
"They treat those guys bke animals 

However, Tom and the other 
members of the group were treated 
very well. They stayed in nice air- 
conditioned rooms and ate in the 
officers' mess hall. They watched 
tankguns being fired and also were 
shown inside the tanks, which was 
almost Tom's roommate's downfall 
Thinking that everything was 
turned off, Tom's roommate started 
the tank and almost got kicked out 
of the program! 

wo spend summer in Alaska 

fBoEHS seniors Sue Marquis and Jim 
iibrough who moved to Alaska at the 
of the school year last June, have 
.^tly returned to finish their high 
^jjil education here at Elmhurst with 
^pg short of many stories about the

jjsliB, Inc. while Sue's father tests all of 

jconcrete that goes into the pipeline. 

[lugh both families have returned to 

Wayne, both of the fathers have 

gained there, where they have to stay 

least one more year until their 

airacts are over. 

bbpay big 

ffie town Sue and Jim lived in was 
iijdez, Alaska, located approximately 

I miles west of Anchorage. Veldez has 
, population of 1200 citizens, but with a 
taV force continually arriving it is 
pjckly increasing. 

The housing for both was set up and 
mvided by the tompany their fathers 
rfrt staff members at. as was their 
•insportation and moving costs to 


The two spent much of their s 
Alaska working. Sue, who had a job in 
Valdez's one and only drugstore, 
averaged 40 to 50 hours a week working. 
She earned S3. 00 an hour as a sales clerk. 
Jim on the other hand, was one of 
Valdez's many construcCten workers. He 
earned $10,35 an hour and worked 10 
hours 8 day. six days a week 

Milkahakes over SI 

The main difference Sue and Jim found 
between the life in Alaska and here were 
the much higher prices. Jim commented 

that groceries cost quite a bit more. For 
example, he stated that a roast that 
would feed four people cost 
approximately $15 there. Milkshakes in 
Alaska are $1.35 and to eat out 
inexpensively in one of Valdez's 
restaurants it would cost about t«n 
dollars per person for a dinner. 

When asked how she felt about what 
she had experienced during the summer, 
Sue concluded, "The town was very 
different. It was very difficult to meet 
people at first, but once you've lived there 
for awhile you get close to people. ' ' 

TWO ELMHURST STUDENTS. Sue Marquis and Jim Yarborough, recently 
returned to Fort Wayne after a two-month stay in Voider, Alaska. The two 
returned to complete their senior year at Elmhurst, although both their fathers 
remained in Valdez for another year and a half They will return when their con- 
tracts are up. 

Float earns $200 

Members of the varsity and 
reserve cheerleading squads 
undertook a money-making project 
during summer vacation that earned 
them $200, which will help defray 
the cost of new letter jackets needed 
for this year's athletic season. 

Under the guidance of Neil 
Heister of Erie Haven Company, the 
cheerleaders helped to build a float 
sponsored by May Stone and Sand, 
Inc. The float was entered into 
competition in the Three Rivers 
Festival parade July 5, and a week 
later in the New Haven Canal Days 
parade. In the TRF parade the float 
placed fourth out of approximately 
60 float participants. 

The theme of the float, which 
when completed cost about $700 to 
construct, was styled in pre-historic 
times. The cheerleaders were 
dressed in cave women costumes 
and carried mallets to break up the 
rocks on the float. 

in brief 

The Elmhurst reserve 
football team suffered its 
third consecutive loss last 
Sept. 22 to a good Bishop 
Dwenger squad. Ehnhurst 
faced the Saints on 
Elmhurst turf and was 
blanked 22-0. For the third 
time, a game went without 

Although the score might 
not indicate it, the Elmhurst 
squad improved its play 
from the previous two 
contests. The offense 
penetrated inside Dwenger's 
20 yard-line twice in the first 
half but couldn't put the 
points on the board. 

The Elmhurst girls volley- 
ball team was defeated by 
two strong Northrop and 
Bishop Dwenger teams last 
Tuesday night at Bishop 
Dwenger High School. 

In the first match, 
Elmhurst faced the 
Northrop Bruins in a tough 
match but was defeated 15-6, 
12-15, 15-4. 

In the second game of the 
evening, the Trojans went 
up against Bishop Dwenger 
but fell to the Saints in a 
close game with scores of 15- 
9,8-15, 15-2.

When the year began 
there wasn't a single coach 
in Fort Wayne that took the 
tennis team as being for real. 
Elmhurst was just supposed 
to be another cellar dwelling 
patsy against whom you 
could bolster your record. 
Well, now that the season is 
near its end and if you would 
take a poll about who's the 
team in the city with the 
best chance to succeed in 
sectionals, Elmhurst would 
be there at the top along 
with Dwenger. 

The following are some 
possible excerpts from city 
coaches in mythical 
interviews about the Trojan 
tennis team. For instance, 
an episode in the interview 
with Wayne's coach Everett 

Roving Reporter; Coach 
I Havens, now that the season 

is almost over, what do you 
think of the Elmhurst tennis 

Coach Havens: Well, 
when you think of the odds 
at the beginning of the 
season and the oddballs that 
were on the team, their 
chances were as slim as a 
thin dime that had been run 
over by an army of 

Roving Reporter; One 
more question before you 
pass away, Coach Havens. 
If you had been Elmhurst's 
tennis coach, what things 
different would you have 
done with the team 

Coach Havens: Well, in 
the beginning I would have 
cut all seniors and 
considered this year a 
rebuilding year. Secondly, I 
would have put all the 
members' names in a hat 
and drawn them out of it 
and placed them accord- 

The next interview was 
with Father Xavier. coach of 
Bishop Luers Knights, who 
were by a "miracle" upset 
by the unbelievable 
Elmhurst netmen by a 

score of 4-3. 

Roving Reporter: Father 
Coach Xavier, can you 
believe what great feats the 
Elmhurst tennis team has 
accomplished this season? 

Father Xavier; My son, 
before the season started 1 
wouldn't have given them a 
martyr's chance. 

Roving Reporter: Father 
Coach Xavier, how do you 
plan to beat Elmhurst in 

Father Xavier: With 
stick, with a hoe, or with 
anything I can find. 

And so the conversation, 
or should we say 
conflagration, ended. Father 
Coach Xavier was the 
highlight of the coaches 
interviewed, but Northrop's 
coach, Mr. Jim Keim, was 
the most frank. 

Roving Reporter: Coach

There is no place to buy ham- 
burgers in Maria's home town of 
Alajueia, but thirty miles away in 
the capital city of San Jose, there 
are two McDonald's and a Pizza 

Hamburgers just aren't eaten too 
often in Costa Rica, whert 
Elmhurst's AFS exchange student 
is from, Maria Elena Arguello 
Sibaja and her friends would more 
likely go out for tacos p'ter a movie 
or maybe to a Swiss baktry. Just as 
American teen-agers might find a 
life without hamburgers a bit 
different from what they're used to. 
Maria has found it different to eat so 
many American-style sandwiches 
and other foods which she says 
"aren't really cuoktu (plain baked, 
fried, or broiled pieces of meat dent 
count). But Maria claims she likes 
just about anything, so the food is 
causing her "no problems." 

Differences aren't just in food 

The United States isn't wholly 
new to Maria, Some aspects of it she 
has heard about before. Costa Rican 
youths listen to rock music from 
many different countries, but 
mostly from the U.S. Maria says she 
doesn't understand why that is so. 
Commonly heard U.S. groups are 
Chicago and America. They differ 
from typical Costa Rican rock 
groups in that they use a lot of 
electric guitars and don't use the 






marimba. Maria, of course, heard 
many things about the U.S. before 
she left, but she refuses to repeat 
what they were. 

Living in Fort Wayne is a lot

EHS loses to Saints, routs Hawks 

The Elmhurst Trojans 
added a game to both the 
win and loss columns in the 
past two weeks by losing a 
close game to Dwenger 7-0, 
Sept. 19 and by defeating 
Harding 28-8 the following 

There was a great sigh of 
relief from Dwenger fans 
after the game between the 
Trojans and the Saints as 
Dwenger pushed across the 
only score of the game 
during the second quarter. 

The score by the Saints was 
the only sign of offensive 
strength by either team as 
the contest turned into a 
classic defensive battle. 

Although the Trojans 
didn't score, they did have a 
couple of golden 

opportunities. At one time 
the Trojans moved the ball 
down to the Dwenger 14 
only to lose the ball by way 
of a fumble. Dwenger then 
took over and on the next 
play fumbled the ball and

the Trojans recovered on the 
Saints' 23. This time the 
Elmhurst offense could not 
move the ball and a field 
goal attempt of 45 yards 

Coach pleased 

Even with the loss. Coach 
Herman feels that his team 
played very well. As a 
matter of fact he described 
the game as the best 
defensive effort the Trojans 
have put forth in his two 
years of coaching them. 
Coach Herman feels that the 
defensive unit has improved 
considerably since the start 
of the year (only 15 points 
have been scored against the 
Trojans since their opener 
against North Side), and one 
of the biggest reasons for 
the improvement was the 
addition of junior Dave 
Stein at the inside safety 

"He had a key 
interception in the Dwenger 
game that stopped a drive, 
and also is one of the team's 
leading tacklers. ' ' 
commented Coach Herman. 
Coach Herman also 

commented that the 
addition of sophomore guard 
Domingo Garcia has helped 
add to the strength of the 
Elmhurst offensive line. 

Football or track 

The Elmhurst-Harding 
contest last Friday evening 
almost turned into a track 
meet during the first half as 
junior Curtis PaschalJ raced 
for 208 yards and three 
touchdowns. Paschall's first 
6 pointer came after the 
Hawks fumbled on the first 
play of the game to give the 
Trojans the ball on the 
Harding 28. The touchdown 
came on a 12-yard spurt for 
the score. The next time the 
Trojan offense got the ball, 
the Elmhurst front Hne 
opened a huge hole and 
Paschall darted through and 
past the Hawks' secondary 
for a 61 yard score. 
Paschall's third score came 
in the second period on a 28 

yarder around the right side 
The fourth Elmhurs 
touchdown came when 
senior Dave Chrzan picked 
up a blocked punt and ran 22 
yards down the side lines for 
the score which sent the 
Trojan fans into hysteria 

The only other Troj an 
score came in the third 
period when junior Moe 
Fink broke the monotony 
with a 30-yard field goal that 
made the final score 28-8. 

The Trojans are now in 
tie for second place in the 
SAC South Division with 
Bishop Luers, who defeated 
Dwenger 22-8. Elmhurst's 
next contest will be against 
South Side this Friday. The 
Archers lead the South 
Division with a 2-0 record 
Both Luers and the Trojans 
have 2-1 records.

America, land of the free. ^ ^^ 
Freedom is a very important | J^ 
concept to two of Elmhurst's new 
students. Quang Nguyen, and his 
female cousin, Loan. 

Last April. Quang and Loan 
(pronounced L'wan) along with their 
families, boarded a plane in Saigon, 
Viet Nam, that carried them away 
from their friends, their home, and 
their country. The Nguyens left Viet 
Nam in order to avoid the Viet 
Cong. As Quang explains, "I am 
free. I have to leave Saigon before 
the Viet Cong come." And with Viet 
Cong comes communism, something |ft,.

to singers Uke Elton John, Olivia 
Newton-John, and Lobo. There are 
also American, French, Chinese, and 
Italian restaurants to go to. 

Students in Viet Nam want to 
come to the United States after they 
graduate from high school to attend 
college. Loan and Quang also 
wanted to come to the U.S. for 
college, but now American is their 
permanent home. Neither one 
expects to be able to return to Viet 
Nam. The only way they would 
return is if the government changed, 
and that is something no one can 

Quang and Loan fear very much. 
Before reaching the United States, 
the Nguyen familes, with other 
Vietnamese refugees, lived in the 
Philippines, becoming accoustomed 
to their new environment. From the 
Phillipines, they traveled to Eglin 
Air Force Base in Florida, and 
finally to Fort Wayne. 

Both families reside in Colony 
Bay Apartments. Quang, who just 
turned 18 Sept. 9, lives with his 
mother and father, one sister and 
one brother. Fifteen-year-old Loan 
shares a rather crowded apartment 
with her parents, one brother and 
six sisters. 

They both like Elmhurst, but find 
the differences between American 
schools and Vietnamese schools 

numerous. In Viet Nam classes are 
not co-ed. Students attend school 
from either 8-12 or 1-5, and classes 
such as physics, chemistry, and 
foreign languages begin in the sixth 

Loan commented on the student- 
teacher relationship in the United 
States saying, "There is no respect 
for the teachers here. In Viet Nam 
respect is very important." 

Recreation in Saigon is very 
similar to recreation common to 
Americans. But according to Loan 
living is cheap in Saigon, something 
most Americans would welcome 
right now. Loan and Quang 
attended American and French 
movies. American music is very 
popular In Saigon teenagers listen

female fashion follower. 

Long skirts and dresses can 
be found today in almost every

and several discount stores in 
the Fort Wayne area. 

According to women's 
clothing salespeople, girls are 
buying long fashions because 
they are comfortable, 
economical, and good looking. 
They cover up not-so-perfect 
legs and several other body

Also, boots are said to go well

What styles do these long

[,y Tom Sonday 

Student Council President 

There has been a great deal of 
planning done for the coming year 
Ijv this year's student council 
officers and already a small but 
growing controversy has begun. 

This controversy revolves around 
[he idea of a student court designed 
10 judge truancy and smoking, and 
other disciplinary cases. Although 
the possibility of a student court has 
been kept in relative secrecy up to 
this point, those close to the council 
officers have been aware of it for 
some time. Basically, the two fields 
of thought are as follows: first, that 
it would be a good thing, and 
second, that it wouldn't have a 
chance of working. 

Court idea successful 
Id other schools 

There are many good arguments 
for both cases. There can be no 
denying the fact, however, that the 
student court idea has worked in 
other high schools in Indiana, 
although none of these schools are in 
the Fort Wayne Community school 
district. If the court works it will 
establish Elmhurst's student 
government leadership within the 
city and will add enormously to 

Elmhurst. If it fails, it will serve as a 
warning to other high schools and 
perhaps, even give a future student 
council a model to work from in 
order to design a student court that 
wouldn't fail. At any rate, in case of 
failure, we lose nothing. 

Set pattern guarded against 

At this time, an official 
presentation of the idea fias not been 
made to Mr. Horstmeyer, but this is 
how the court will work if it become 
a reality. There will be three judges 
all with equal authority. One will 
serve for an entire year, while the 
other two will serve only one 
semester. This will keep the courts 
from getting too set in a certain 
pattern. Those against the court 
argue that the courts will become 
just that-set in a pattern that would 
see it become too strict or too 
lenient. Obviously this possibility is 
guarded against. Besides this 
guard, if a student feels that his case 
has been tried unfairly, he may 
appeal it to the principal. 

There is also a fear that the 
student council, being the originator 
of the court, would also control it. 
The constitution for the court 
would, however, block this by 
keeping any judge from being a 

member of the student council. 
Therefore, the student council and 
the student court would be 
completely separate aspects of 
Elmhurst's student government, 
except for the nominations of the 
judges, which would be made by the 
council, but would also be approved 
by the principals. 

Student court: a radical change 

It is true that the idea of a court 
run by students for students would 
be a radical change in our high 
school, but the officers feel that it 
would be an excellecnt and probably 
the best way to get more student 
input into the disciplinary code* 
that are set up for us by the 
administration. Unfortunately, 
because of the many things about 
the idea that must be worked out, 
there is little chance that the court 
can be organized before January of 
the school year. In the meantime, 
the schedule for the first semester of 
student council sponsored events as 
it stands now is as follows: 
Sept. 17 - Senior class elections 
Sept. 24 - junior fmd sophomore 
class elections 

Oct. 1 Representative and 

alternate elections 

Oct. 7-First student council meeting 
Oct. 17 -Homecoming and 
homecoming dance 
Oct. 27 - Fund raising competition 
with all area high schools begins 
Nov, 15 ■ Penny arcade 
Dec. 20 - emiformal dance 
Jan. 24 - Dance marathon 

Besides this, there will be a 
method of reporting student council 
activities to the student body. This' 
may be done either by releases to the 
newspaper by use of a specific 
bulletin board where meeting 
agenda would be posted, or possibly 
by assigning each representative a 
homeroom to report to. 

We are looking forward to the 
best student council year yet, and 
we hope you will give us your 
support in all of our various 

Reactions to this article and the 
idea of a student court would be 
appreciated. Letters should be taken 
to room 108. All letters will be con- 
sidered for publication unless other- 
wise indicated by the writer. 

Trofans elect 
Council reps 

Room 162 seemed incredibly like 
election headquarters on October 8 
as the Student Council 
representative ballots were 
tabulated. Amid the rustUng of 
what often appeared to be millions 
of votes and the occasional cursing 
that always accompanies an 
endeavor of this type, eight 
representatives and two alternates 
were chosen from each class. 

Stan Sorgen got the most votes in 
the senior class while Nancy Beadie. 
Yvette Morrill, and Phil Gutman 
returned to the Student Council for 
the third consecutive year. Other 
representatives are Kevin Lee. 
Andrea Marchese, Ann Momper, 
and Linda Morsches. Alternates are 
Betsy Barber and Matt Cary. 

The juniors gave Dave Stein the 
most votes with others being Jan 
Dowling, Tom Cross, Sue 
Frankewich, Kellie Slate, Leslie 
Collier, Tod Huntley, and Sue 
Taylor. Alternates are Terri 
McCombs and Matt Tyler. 

Ron Hill collected the most votes 
with Derrick DeBruce close behind 
for the sophomores. Others are Joan 
Landrigan, Kim Burry, Cheryl 
Hobbs, Liz Macias, Sandy Ross, 
and Barb Dixon. Alternates are 
Cindy Lemaster and Kim Perry.

One of the many privileges (?) of 
being a Trojan is going to the 
assemblies. On September 30, 
Campus Life presented a concert for 
the benefit of Elmhurst by Lindy 
Hearne and his wife Linda. 

Lasting approximately 30 
minutes, the concert consisted 
mostly of Lindy's own country 
songs along with some popular 

Campus Life also sponsored a 
Burger Bash which was held on 
Cathy Tonn's front lawn Oct. 1. 
The event drew over 100 Trojans 
with around 600 hamburgers being 

The cost of the Burger Bash, only 
$1 per person, entitled that person 
to as many hamburgers as he or she 

wanted to eat. 

The record previously set was 29 
hamburgers eaten by one person. 
Bill Campbell, affectionately known 
as "Bubbles" around E.H.S., ate a 
record-setting 31 hamburgers. 

Mike Mullen and Mike Maurer 
also added some entertainment by 
challenging each other to a grape- 
stomping contest. Mike Maurer 
came out on top. 

The philosophy of Campus Life is 
to help students develop mentally, 
physically, socially, and spiritually. 
In Fort Wayne, Campus Life is a 
division of Youth for Christ.

Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude (PSAT) 
tests are scheduled to he administered next 
Tuesday. Oct. 21 , to juniors, according to the 
junior class guidance counselor. John Sinks. 

The PSAT test is a preliminary test to the 
SAT It is administered so that juniors may 
get an idea of what the SAT test involves as 
to the mechanics of these tests and the types 
of questions asked. 

The PSAT tests measure verbal and 
mathematical aptitude, two abilities impor- 
Unt in doing college work. 

Co-sponsored by the College Board and

oy Barb Harman 


There seems to be a lot of 
people who are either bored 
stymied by the 
complexity of most 
progressive English bands, 
and despite the fact that 
Gentle Giant's Free Hand is 
undoubtedly one of the best 
albums in this area and in 
■ock music as a whole, it 
unfortunately probably 
won't convince these people 
into liking it. 

The album consists of 
seven songs, only two of 
which ("Time to Kill" and 
"His Last Voyage") are 
typical Gentle Giant. These 
two unfortunately lack the 
originality of the others. The 
five remaining songs are 
also distinctly Gentle Giant, 
but with rhythmic twists as 
in "Just the Same" and 
madrigal effects in "On 
Reflection." These are 
possibly the two best songs 
on the record. "Free Hand" 
is a bit more rough than the 
rest of the songs, but 
"Talybont" slips into the 

classical genre to compen- 

On the whole, the album is 
a piece of rock artistry (if 
artistry in rock is possible), 
but it may indeed prove 
rough listening for those not 
used to the music form. 

This week's import is an 
Italian release which is 
somewhat reminiscent of the 
Fripp/Eno album reviewed 
earlier. However for some 
odd reason, Sonanze has an 
appeal which No 

Pussyfooting was totally 
lacking in. 

Even though the album 
tends to give one the same 
sci-fi feeling. Cacciapaglia 
has, by orchestrating the 
record, given it a depth that 
the other did not have. 
Sonanze also consists of 
many compositions, instead 
of just the two on 
Pussyfooting. The pieces 
also, for the most part, do 
have some melodic line, even 
though the vehicle used to 
present them is at times 

All told, one gets the 
feeling that there is more to 
Cacciapaglia than to his 
electrified counterparts. The 
album is strange, but good, 
and it may prove both an 
extra ordinary and interest- 
ing experience for the 


Canned Funk may be 
extremely funky, but it's 
anything but canned. Joe 
Farrell has produced some of 
the most alive jazz and one 
of the brightest albums 

The great thing about the 
record is that it never lets 
the listener down. From the 
opening number on side one, 
"Canned Funk," even to the 
comparatively softer and 
less funky "Spoken 
Silence," the driving pace of 
the album is maintained, yet 
with no real wear on the 

The personnel on the 
album include Joe Beck on 
guitar. Jim Madison on 
drums, Ray Mantilla on 
congas and percussion, Herb 
Bushier on bass and Farrell 

New Allen movie 
points up artistry 

There reaches a point when it 
becomes necessary to stop 
speaking about an artist in terms 
of being one of the best and start 
talking about him as the best, Fc 
Woody Allen that point has come 
with the release of his new movie 
Love and Death. 

Allen has played humorist and 
satirist in a succession of movie; 
which, without exception, havn 
proved themselves classic pieces of 
humor. In Sleeper, Play it Again, 
Sam, Bananas, and now Love end 
Death, he maintains consistently 
brilliant standards, not only in 
writing, but in diiection and 
performance as well. 

The story line of the film centers 
around themes in Russian 
literature, particularly Tolstoy's 

War and Peace. As a parody. Love 
and Death succeeds by playing 
upon all the ominous and 
overpowering aspects of the form, 
and in the end. making them 
totalJy absurd. For example, in the 
war scenes, the battles are 
accomppnied by cheerleaders and a 
man who sells Blinis (hot dogsl for 
one ruble, Allen's treatment of the 
"deep " conversations found in this 
type of literature translates itself 
into psuedo-intellectual cocktail 

All in all. Love and Death is a 
film definately worth seeing ■■ even 
seeing several times. For Allen, the 
film is par for the course, for the 
audience it is par excellence and for 
comedy in general, it is yet another 
.\llen classic. 

himself on tenor, soprano, 
and baritone saxes and flute. 
Farrell "s solos are high 
points on the album, but the 
rest of the band's 
performances are superb 

Farrell's compositions are 
truly amazing. "Suite 
Martinique" manages to 
combine strong blues/funk 
rhythms with an occasional 
lilting melodic theme from 
classical composer Rimsky- 

"Scheherazade". "Spoken 
Silence" is probably one of 
the few jazz pieces ever 
written capable of balancing 
the emotions of the listener 

Altogether, the album 
puts itself together by being 
both driving, funky and 
bhght, without managing to 
be obnoxious. A great 
album, especially for a 
party. Canned Funk rates an

In the past, the game has 
been nothing less than an

however, wiU be different. 
Both the juniors and the 
seniors have decided that 
Powderpuff is a game, and it 
will be treated hke a game. 

"We've just decided that 
there's a lot at stake when 
you play this kind of game," 
senior Selma Vaughn 
commented. "We are all 
good friends and are just 
out to have a lot of fun," 

Seven EHS seniors were 
recently recognized as 
commended scholars by the 
National Merit Scholarship 

Principal Richard 
Horstmeyer announced that 
Nancy Beadie, Roberta 
Cohen, Karen Crippen, Barb 
Harman, Mike Mullen, Les 
Novitsky, and Cindy Ross 
received letters of 


These students are seven 
of 38,000 nationally 
recognized scholars, part of 
a million high school 
students who took their 
PSAT tests in 1974. 
The commended students 

represent less than two per 
cent of those high school 
seniors expected to graduate 
next June. 

Although the seven 
ranked high on the PSAT 
tests, they do not go further 
in the Merit Scholarship 
competition because their 
scores were just below those 
of the 16,000 semifinalists 
recognized at the beginning 
of the school year. Elmhurst 
has seven Merit 

semifinaUsts this year. They 
are Dave Beutler, Wes 
Byrne, Matt Cary, Yvette 
Morrill, Verne Myers, Tom 
Sonday, and Don Wenger. 
These students will compete 

for about 3800 Merit 
Scholarships to be awarded 
next spring. 

The commendation will 
increase the students' 
chances of college 

acceptance and means that 
they will very likely be 
sought after by colleges and 
universities. The test scores 
will be sent to the schools 
they chose when taking the

School plagued by vandaWsm; 
students, parents pay costs 

Elmhurst High School is 
the building where each and 
every Trojan attends 
classes, day in and day out. 
1 1 is where friends meet, 
talk, and hang out together 
for seven hours a day. Clubs, 
studies, and social activities 
originate in and around the 
school, providing a center of 
activity which for many, if 
not most, students is the 
only one in their lives. 
Elmhurst is a school of the 
student body, but 
unfortunately to others is a 
piece of property to be used, 
misused, and taken for 

Vandalism, that is, 
misuse or unreasoned 
destruction of property, has 
been a regular part of 
Elmhurst is recent years. It 
results in costing taxpayers 
(you and your parents) 
money-money to buy new 
fixtures in restrooms, or new 
desks, or the cost of cleaning 
up. If only for that simple 
reason, vandalism is useless, 
costly, and creates an 
inconvenience to fellow 

students. It is simply 
carelessness, maliciousness, 
or disrespect. But more than 
that, people are destroying 
property which does not 
belong to them, and which 
certainly affects others. One 
should have a basic respect 
for his own and others' 

Clearly this type of 
destruction is done by a very 
few. However, perhaps of 
more importance is the 
attitude of the entire 
student body. Probably 
everyone has been guilty of 
one thing or another, from 
leaving paper on the floor to 
writing on the backs of 
desks. True, they are little 
things, but they make up a 
large portion of cleaning 
work and represent a 
careless attitude we all seem 
to have not only for school 
property but for things in 
general. Perhaps it is time 
we took a closer look at 
ourselves and our property. 
After all. we are going to 
have to live with each other 
for the rest of our lives.

NYAP holds forum FoFum Club looks good 

by Marilynn'Scherer 

The National Youth 
Alternatives Project 
(NYAP) is a program 
operating out of 

Washington, D.C. that gives 
technical assistance to forty 
cities east of the 
Mississippi. Their 
assistance centers around 
the development of runaway 
clinics and various other 
youth serving agencies. 

On Thursday, Oct. 2. 
NYAP, in co-operation with 
Switchboard, held a public 
forum to discuss the 
runaway problem. 

Members representing

panel discussion where each 
organization revealed its 
past commitments and 
future plans in relation to 
the youth runaway problem. 

Ken Watson of the 
Probation Department 
explained. "We don't want 
them (runaways). I, 
personally, would rather 
deal with an armed robbery 
case. The runaway is usually 
a very emotional, explosive 

Mr. Watson went on to 
discuss the problems with 
the runaway and the law. 
He stated, "Parents and 
social agencies do not belong 
in a court of law." 

One of the runaway homes 
is located at 316 W. 
Creighton. The new 
Switchboard home is a 
result of an HEW (Health 
Education & Welfare) grant 
of $30,000. The new phone 
number is 456-4561.

In their first meet of the 
school year, members of the 
Elmhurst Forum Club 
received outstanding honors 
at the Student Congress at 
the Indiana-Purdue

The Student Congress 
consisted of three houses - 
Senate, House A, and House

Tennis team /ends 
SAC with 3-0 

After capturing their last 
three tennis matches the 
city-surprising Elmhurst 
netmen have claimed sole 
possession of first place in 
the SAC race. 

After spotting 
Huntington a 6-0 victory in 
the first match of the year, 
the Big Red Tennis Machine 
got its wheels rolling by 
posting three consectuive 4- 
3 decisions over Snider, 
Wayne, and Bishop Luers, 
all SAC rivals. 

Individual credit for these 
three victories goes to the 
doubles teams of senior 
Gregg Heckley and 
sophomore Marty Rifkin, 
along with seniors Terry 
Sims and Greg Nowak. Both 
of these teams are 
undefeated in conference 
play and sport 3-1 records 

Juniors Ted Omas and 
Tim Springer have held 
together the singles 
department by posting two 
victories each in conference 


Typifying the students' 
view of the boys tennis team 
was senior Diane Lupke 
when she exclaimed 
"Teriffic! I didn't think they 
were that good!" after she 
had heard of their 

Coach Robert Horn has 
expressed much surprise in 
his team. He believes that 
they can attain the .550 
plateau that they have 
worked so hard for. 

Upcoming matches pit the 
Big Red against Concordia 
this evening at home and 
South Side tomorrow night, 
an away game.

Before each rehearsal, the nine-member 
cast, the student stage-manager, and the 
student-director of the school play. "See 
How They Run," have a voluntary warm-up 

Chances are, at six o'clock, the supposed 
starting time for rehearsal, the cast could 
not be found on stage, but rather on the gym 
floor or flying through the air. Frisbees 
whisk through the gym and people dodge 
them. Voices sing snatches of "Some Day 
1 '11 Find You" a song in the play. 
Occasionally, a person will scream as he 
lands after being swung by the legs or after 
landing awkwardly from a flip, cartwheel, or 
practice-faint. Most conversations contain 
random lines from the play which always 
manage to fit in somewhere. On real wild 
nights someone might even do a strip show! 
The warm-up usually winds up with some 
loud communal singing, some amateur tap- 
dancing, a swing of the hips, and a shout. 

Then the director, whoever th^ director 
might be that night - Mrs. Wellington, Mr. 
Goss, or senior Sarah Stewart, will finally 
get teed-off and shout "Everyone into 
positions! " After a few minutes of laughter, 
Pat Koehl, stage-manager, will say "Curtain 
up" and the rehearsal will begin. So far the 
cast has gotten through one or maybe two 
acts during a three and a half hour rehearsal 
period. This is due to the fact that until a 
week or so ago, everyone was still using a 
script. Reading and consulting the script for 
stage directions while being stopped to 
figure out blocking (movement and 
positioning of character on stage) takes a 
much longer time than saying lines and 
performing actions known by heart. The 
cast members are encouraged to memorize 

See how they run 

their lines as quickly as possible by bemg 
charged money for each line missed ■ a 
penny per line for main characters and a 
nickel per line for minor characters. The 
proceeds from this collection go toward 
buying refreshments for a cast party. 

A rehearsal seldom goes smoothly. Often 
a cast member will not be in the gym when 
he's supposed to be on stage, and a search 
will go out for the man with the missing cue. 
Members get sick or have urgent things 
they must go to instead of rehearsal and so 
substitutes are needed. During a faint or a 
fight someone may get hurt or a character 
may keep babbling on when he really has no 
idea of what his actual lines are and thus 
confuses the rest of the cast. All in all. a 
rehearsal for the school play is a three-and-a- 
half hour period of confusion, fun, and lots 
of work with Tom Young, John Silletto, 
Leslie Collier, Geoff Sills, Nancy Beadie, 
Larry Daugherty, Matt Tyler, Melissa 
Hunter, Allen Shaw, Pat Koehl, and Sarah 

Cross country team 
2-2 . 20th in state 

13- sports 

As of this writing, the 
cross country team record 
stands at 2-2 and is ranked 
twentieth in the state. They 
held their first meet on Sept. 
2 and came away with two 
victories, defeating a tough 
Harding team 25-30 and also 
defeating Homestead 23-32 
(low score wins in cross 
country). Elmhurst had four 
men in the top ten as Dave 
Lewis led the way with a 
second place finish. Tim Lee 
finished fourth, Jim 
Freygang sixth and Bob 
Levy eighth to round out a 
strong field. 

A week later the team 
traveled to Goshen to take 
on Goshen and Wayne. The 
team wasn't as fortunate 
this time out as they were 
handed two defeats by very 
tough competition. 
Elmhurst ran well, but was 
closely defeated 28-32 by 
Goshen and 27-28 by 
Wayne. Tim Lee and Dave 

Lewis led the way for the 
Elmhurst runners as they 
finished second and third 

Elmhurst traveled to 
Elkhart last Saturday but 
results were not in in time 
for printing. Tomorrow, 
Thursday, the team has its 
first home meet at Swinney 
Park. The meet will start at 
4 p.m. They run against 
Bishop Luers and Norwell 
but their strongest 
challenge will be from 
Dekalb, the tenth rated 
team in state. 

To prepare for this season 
most of the runners put in 
many miles over the 
summer, running mostly on 
their own to be in top shape 
for that first meet. Then the 
week of Aug. 11, the team 
started practice at Chain-0- 
Lakes State Park. During 
the week the team put in 
many tough and grueling 
miles but most members 
said they had a great time. 

This has become an annual 
event started last year by 
Coach Lohr. 

This year's team has 
seven returning lettermen 
and is made up of six 
seniors, seven juniors and 
five sophomores. The 
members are Mike 
Ausderan, Bill Brown, Chad 
Cline, Bob Curts, Rich 
Ewell, Jim Freygang, Mike

First known as The Herd, then as 
Atlantis, and now known as Ethos, 
the group well-known to older teen- 
agers of the area is now cutting an 
album with Capitol Records. Ethos 
was always the local band to hear. 
At Lantern concerts, at the Country 
Club, anywhere a large crowd of 
youth comes for music. Ethos has 
played. For several years, the group 
has been trying to 'make it'. They've 
worked on other contracts but 
wanting to break into the business 
'right', they waited to record until 
they got one of the biggest recording 
companies in the world - Capitol 

Right now the group's members 
are in New York City finishing up 
the last step of the recording 
process. Home in Fort Wayne are 
the roadies like Martin Luther 
Precise (M.L.) who is in charge of 
setting up the stage and the 
equipment, and Thom Hansen who 
does all the lighting for concerts and 
sets up the drurti and percussion 
instruments. Thom and Martin were 
in New York for a week or so at the 
outset of the album's recording, 
When they were there, the nine 
group members and associates 
stayed together in an ocean-side 
house which they have for use 
during the five-week recording 
period. There they ate communal 
nieals. slept, and relaxed when they 
Weren't in the city. 

Thom and Martin are of course 
excited about the turn of events that 
brought them to New York City. 
They describe the group members as 
dedicated and determined to bring 

the group to success. The eight song 
album which will be released 
sometime within the next threi 
months is certainly a big step in the" 
right direction, it is only the first of 
the four albums the group 
contracted to release within the next 
four years. Recorded on this first 
album are the songs 'Atlantea.ns" 
"Long Dancer", "Intrepid Travel- 
er", "Dimension Man", "Every 
Man", "Space Brothers", 

"Emotions", and "Spirit of Music". 
Martin explained that this album 
will mark some changes in the 
group. First of all, two new 
members have been added. The 
original three instrumentalists: Bill 


'. ■ 

* B a 3 °ft g ♦ 

^^"■= ■ ■ ■ L, 

Sharpe who plays all guitars 
- acoustic, electric, and 
mandolin and who Thom 
described as the man with 
the business sense, Mark 
Richards who does drums, 
percussion, and vocals, and 
Mike Ponczek who plays the 
Hammond B-3, Moog 
Model D, electric 12-string 
guitar, the mellotron, the 
electric piano, and the 
Chamberlain, have been 
joined by two new 
instrumentalists. Brad 
Stephenson who was in the 
group "Security" will now 
play the Rickenbacker Bass, 
Fender, Jazz Bass, and the 
Moog Bass Pedals for 
Ethos. And L. 

Duncanhammond. a 
graduate of the University 
of Michigan School of 
Music, plays the Moog 12. 
the Moog Model D, 
the mellotron, Clavinet D6, 
Yamaha Organ, Rhodes 88, 
and the bagpipes. Greg 
Riker is the group's sound 

The music the group ie 
playing is also changing 
according to Martin. A 
couple of the tunes on the 
album have never been 
played in concert, and the 
music as a whole is getting 
"funkier" as Martin put it. 
He qualified this statement 
a little by saying this does 
not mean it is getting more 
commercialized, just more 
'fimky' in a fast jazz style. 

1- Feature 
Recording an album has 
brought the group and its 
associates in contact with 
some important people — 
people who have worked 
with such big names as 
James Taylor, Carly Simon, 
Joni Mitchell. Gentle Giant, 
Genesis, Jethro TuU, Black 
Sheba, J. Giles, and Stevie 
Wonder. Speaking of the 
group's agent, Vincent 
Romeo who once was Paul 
McCartney's agent, Martin 
said, "Just sitting in his 
office sends chills up your 
spine. After all, we're just 
Midwestern boys." 

At a fee of $150 an hour, 
the group has been 
recording up to nine hours a 
night from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. 
at the Hit Factory in New 
York City. They are very 
happy with their contract 
and with the feedback which 
they have gotten from 
"higher-ups" in the 
recording business. 

In examining the roadie 
team's role in Ethos' recent 
accomplishments, Martin 
said, "Well, you know 
behind every good group is a 
great roadie team." Besides 
Martin and Thom, the 
roadie team consists of 
Biker who shares duties 
with Martin, Mark Briggs 
who is a business man, 
agent, and college professor, 
and a "special guest roadie" 
D. W. Morale.

The Elmhurst High 
School reserve football team 
got off to a slow start this 
year by losing their first 
two games of the season to 
Harding and Bishop Luers. 

The Harding Hawks 
handed Elmhurst its first 
defeat on Sept. 2. by a score 
of 8-0. However, the Trojans 
almost made a touchdown 
near the end of the game, 
but the football landed just 
inches from the goal line, 

A week later, on Sept. 8. 
the Reserves met the Bishop 
Luers Saints on the Trojan 
home turf, but again were 

defeated 40-0. 

Mr. Jim Lambert, the 
reserve football coach, 
commented. "They just did 
not execute well." 

The reserves also have a 
new coach this year in the 
person of Mr. Al Burns. 
Aside from coaching the 
Trojans. Mr.- Burns also 
teaches at Hoagland and 
Washington Elementary 

Bishop Dwenger will be 
the next opponent for the 
Trojan reserves, at 4 p.m. 
Monday, Sept. 22, on the 
Elmhurst home field.

Tennis team stc 

by Verne Myers 

The Elmhurst tennis team was defeated in sectional play 
by Snider in a close match, 3-2. The sectionals were held 
Saturday. Oct. 4. at Huntington. 

Elmhurst also lost last year in first round sectional play 
to Northrop. The difference? This year, the surging Trojans 
piled up a 10-4 record. Last year they picked up a 2-12 
record. Last year, Elmhurst was near the bottom of the 
SAC. This year they finished second to an undefeated 
Bishop Dwenger squad. In one year, Elmhurst came 
through with the second best record in its tennis history, 
surprising SAC rivals, coaches, students, and players. 

The big turn-around came as a pleasant surprise to 
everyone, and several factors contributed to it. Mr. Horn 
commented. "We had more depth than I though t we would 
need. " The depth of the team was their strong point in many 
of the matches throughout the year. Lots of improvement

After choosing the title 
for my column, I figured 
that it would be ideal to 
devote my first article to 
girls' sports. Namely the 
program at Elmhurst, its 
achievements, its goals, and 
hopes for success this 

But a freak airplane 
accident has altered my 
plans. This column is going 
to center around one female 
athlete, her outstanding 
abiUty, her sportsmanship, 
etc., because for Sue 
Fitzwilliam there is no hope 
for success this season. 

A freshman at Bishop 
Luers last year, Sue and her 
doubles partner Ann 
Galpein succeeded in 
defeating the Elmhurst duo 
of Sally Hinton and Cheri 
Norton for the number one 
position in the regional 
tennis tournament. 

Senior Cheri Norton 
described Sue as being a 
"real relaxed player - she 
always stayed calm." Cheri 
explained that the Luers duo 
success was due not only to 

their abiUty in the game, but 
to their consistency ... 
playing every 
shot as if it were the last. 

Sue ,her father Jack, her 
sisters Jackie and Jennifer, 
and a neighbor, Jennifer 
Bonn, were all victims of a 
fatal plane crash in a field 
near Wayne Trace on 
August 16. Sue's pilot- 
father was heading towards 
Baer Field for a landing 
when the plane ran out of 

No doubt Sue learned 
most of her tennis talents 
from her mother, tennis 
instructor Carol 
Fitzwilliam. Mrs. 

Fitzwilliam has been into 
tennis for a number of years 
and gives lessons at the 
Marriott Inn. She usually 
places high in the city 
tennis tournament. 

The Fitzwilliams were a 
family of athletes-sister 
Jackie placed fourth in her 
division of the City Diving 
Meet, and was a member of 
the Pocahontas Diving

Editor's Note: This is the [irat in a 
series of periodical articles 
covering the 2lBt Olympiad to be 
held this upcoming winter and 
Bummer in Denver, Colorado and 
Montreal. Canada, respectively. 
These articles will also touch upon 
the 20th Olympiad and previous 
Olympics. The following article 
will take us back to the 
controversial 20th Olympiad held 
during the summer of 1972 in 
Alunich, Germany. 

The 20th Olympiad began with 
much pomp and circumstance. 
Thousands of doves were released 
as little children danced around the 
Olympic Stadium depicting an 
unimaginable floral arrangement 
as they held their floral wreaths 
about their heads. The easy-going 
spirit of opening day was 
intentionally construed so that the 
20th Olympiad would be a complete 
turn-about from the 13th Olympiad 
held in Berlin, Germany, during the 
summer of 1936. 

At that time in history, a black 
man from the United States. Jesse 
Owens, captured gold medals in the 
100 meter dash, 200 meter dash. 
and running broad jump. 
Coinciden tally, during this same 
period. Adolph Hitler had come in- 
to power in Germany, One of 
Hitler's major projects during his 
^dictatorship of Germany was the 

development of his master race of 
Aryans. Aryans were supposed to 
have blonde hair, blue eyes, and a 
very healthy physical build. Hitler 
considered anyone who did not fit 
this description as a member of an 
inferior race of people. Such was 
the case of Jesse Owens when he 
won his three gold medals. Hitler, 
believing that the Negroid race was 
as low on the totem pole as a race 
could get. would not even recognize 
the accomplishments of the black 
Jesse Owens, So the 1936 Olympics 
went down in the history book as a 
political Olympics and not a 
sporting Olympics. 

The 1972 Olympics were to be 
the greatest 01',mpics in history, 
especially those In the summer 
There was no reason why thf»y 
shouldn't have been. The Olympic 
village was designed to be a 
melting pot for the athletes where 
they might congregate during the 
course of the day and converse 
freely among themselves. A 
beautiful boxing hall that seated 
6200 people had been built and was 
affectionately called by the people 
of Munich, Der Boxhalle mitt der 
Gloves. But the main attraction 
the Olympics was to be the Germor 
people. They wanted so much tn 
please the visitors from countries 
all around the world and most o( all 
they wanted to make the world 

forget about the 1936 Olympics by 
displaying the 1972 Olympics as 
the most spectacular ever held. By 
the final day they had only 
imbedded in the memory of thi 
world that the 1972 Olympic g£ m. 
were the bloodiest ever held. 

In my next article covering ih 
upcoming Olympics. 1 will discuss 
the aspects that made the 1972

ed at sectionals 

was noted among most of the players since last year, and 
the addition of two fine first-year players strengthened the 
team. Another important factor was the addition of new 
tennis courts at Elmhurst which helped to organize and 
solidify the team into a strong unit. 

Several records were broken this year, and Mr. Horn is 
accumulating them into a record book. Some outstanding 
individual performances are worth noting in this year's 
team. The best overall record for the year is held by the 
doubles team of Terry Sims and Greg Nowak. 9-1. Other 
high records are 7-1 by Marshall Beatty (singles), Tim 
Springer 9-2 in singles and doubles, and 6-3 by Ted Ornas. 
This year's team record was bettered only in 1970, when the 
team was 9-1 for the year. 

Next year looks promising as seven lettermen will be 
back, and the experience will be there. After 11 years, tennis 
has extablished itself at Elmhurst.

Guys cook

■'Mmmmmm! Delicious! Wow, am

person hears these strange "noises" 
coming from the home economics 
rooms, he expects the voices to be 
slightly high, squeaky, and with a 
few giggles added in for the heck of 
it. But in the past two years there 
have been changes in the home ec 
department. Because of these 
changes, the voices heard making 
these remarks are often very low- 
pitched and definitely male.

year, there are approximately 
eighteen male students enrolled in 
the beginning foods classes. 
According to Miss Sharon Dietrich, 
instructor of the foods classes, 
having males in the class has not 
changed her method of teaching 
drastically, but she does have to be a 
little more careful that things are 
explained thoroughly, "Most girls,"

An important part of any high school is its newspapei 
Some people ask what is the point ol having a newspaper? Is 
it really worth the time and the money? If you look around, 
you can find many people who feel a school newspaper 
certainly worth the time and the money. 

A school newspaper provides a means by which a member 
of the faculty, the administration, and the student body can 
voice his opinions. It's unlikely that a student who has 
certain views he wishes to voice to the student body would 
like to go around to each person at Elmhurst and tell them 
his views. It would certainly take too long to reach everyone 
and it's improbable that he would be able to reach everyone, 
A simple solution would be for that person to go to the 
newspaper staff and ask them to print his views in the 
newspaper. This would save time and would effectively 
express that person's opinions. 

Another advantage of having a school newspaper is it 
informs its readers. Plans for an upcoming dance or 
proposed plans of the student council could easily be printed 
in the paper, and thus, would quickly and accurately inform 
the people. 

Besides voicing the people's opinions and informing thi 
student body, a newspaper is also essential in entertaining 
and educating its readers. Features, editorials, news stories, 
sports stories, ads, and cartoons are instrumental 
accomplishing this. They can tell what records are new on 
the music scene, who won last week's football game, what 
stores are having sales, what it's like to live in a foreign 
country, along with a number of other things interesting to 
Elmhurst students. 

As you can see, a school newspaper is an important part 
of a high school — that is, if the students make it 
important. It's the actions and opinions of the student body 
that make a newspaper what it is. Besides a newspapei 
staff, you need the support and suggestions of the studentsf 
to make the newspaper a publication that they can be a part] 
of and proud of^ 

Saiicrs examine h'gher schook 

About this time of year, 
things begin to pile up for 
many seniors - mainly piles 
of paper and mail from 
colleges seeking them as 
future students, memos 
from the guidance 

department along with the 
hundreds of other brochures 
and catalogues they might 
have picked up at higher 
education fairs or 

thoughtful relatives. 

For many students, the 
paper is welcome junk. For 
them, college is the next 
logical step and the stacks of 
information they've 
accumulated only serves as 
a joyful reminder that high 
school is about to end and 
that next year at this time... 
But not everyone is this 
lucky. For some persons, 
college is not a part of the 
logical sequence of events, 
but is instead an option 
that will require an 
extremely crucial decision 
"Is college best for me?" -■ 
as a matter of money, it 
could prove difficult, and, is 
the fact that most of 
student's friends are leaving 
enough to send him away for 
four years? Many have faced 

this question, but few have 
really known how to cope 
with it. Part of the answer 
comes from guidance -- an 
objective party can some- 
times find a person's 
strengths and weaknesses 
better than the person 
himself. Also, finding out 
what the college will expect 
of the student can help. 
College pressures can be 
heavy - it is estimated that 
ai.iost 50 percent of all 
college freshmen nationwide 
drop out or flunk out before 
their sophomore year. This 
is not to say that all of these 
students were indecisive 
about higher education, 
simply it takes a dedicated 
person to succeed in an 
academic environment. 

The most important 
answer, though, comes from 
the student himself. If he is 
willing to put time and 
effort into examining his 
reasons for wanting to go to 
college, realize that peer or 
parental pressure is not the 
reason for schooling, then he 
may be able to discover 
what may be the best next 
step for him, and be excited, 
because next year at this

Jeachersophomore actions criticized Montv takcs .. 

To the editor: 

It is my desire at this time 
to express concern over the 
ways that some of the 
teachers handled themselves 
during the strike last month. 

Over all. I would Uke Jto 
commend the faculty of 
EHS for the respectful way 
that they operated their 
picket lines. Now. don't get 
me wrong, I was all for you 
during the strike. The 
School Board along with 
their faithful leader have 
been a little too stubborn on 
many issues involving 
contract negotiations for too 
long of a time. However, I 
think that it is a severe 
shame the way that some of 
the teachers acted Uke a 
bunch of little third graders 
toward a few of the students 
who wished to come to 
school for a few hours a day 
for various reasons. While 
they were in the building, 
they were in constant fear 
that one or more of their 
tires may be slashed. And 
some of the smart-alecky 
looks that teachers gave to 
the students as they entered 
and exited the parking lot's 

north entrance were a little 
uncalled for -- case in point: 
when this student entered 
the parking lot one 
afternoon, several teachers 
were standing around the 
entrance, and they all gave 
me the look as I entered. 
While waiting in the parking 
lot before entering the 
building, I noticed that they 
did this to everyone who 
entered. Upon my attempt 
to exit, I was willfully 
blocked from leaving by 
several teachers standing 
around talking to people in 
cars that had the entire 
drive blocked except for one 
small path along the side. In 
anticipation that the 
teachers would move, I 
waited for several minutes. 
However, they just stood 
there. After getting tired of 
waiting. I slowly pulled out 
around them, and one of the 
teachers that was standing 
there commented to me. 
"Oh, I'm sorry that we were 
in your way." I just minded 
my own business and went 
on my way. 

Teachers are supposed to 
teach, and by that standard, 
they should be setting good 

examples for students to 
follow in their daily lives. 
Now, come on, what is a 
student supposed to think 
when a few of the teachers 
start acting like third- 
graders? They are supposed 
to act Hke mature adults. 
Frankly, I think most of the 
student body here at EHS 
handled themselves in a 
more mature way than did 
some, not all. of the striking

The basis for this whole

his Round Table of knights. 
Their endless, hopeless 
search for the last cup used 
by Christ, the Holy Grail, 
dooms all of the knights to 
fall prey to their own

The unpredictable format of 
the movie set against the

to keep the audience alert

Each knight, from the 
"courageous" to the "not so 
courageous," meets his fate, 
whether it be at the hands of 
a vicious rabbit or through 
arrest by a twentieth 
century London cop. 

For those who don't like 
the Monty Python series, or

might turn out to be a

I heard something most disturbing the other day. The 
sports writers for the ADVANCE were arguing among 
themselves, "Who's going to write reserve football?" The 

apathetic response was "What can you say they 


Sports writers are not, by far, the only guilty parties. 
Team players, coaches, the student body, faculty, and 
administration are just as much to blame. It seems that 
everyone is so intent on winning that the purpose of 
sports has vanished. ..that purpose being inter scholastic 
competition to achieve a basic education in 
sportsmanship and team spirit. Whoever said our teams 
tiad to play like professionals and beat the arch rivals? 

The score of the game does not always prove the 
winners. The winners are the people who come from the 
game with an attitude that they have learned something. 
Winners are the people that can leave the game behind, 
accepting mistakes without placing blame. 

Losers, on the other hand, are the people that become 

'ernight geniuses on sport evaluation. They are the ones 
that say things like "We would have won if..." Losers 
lever stop to appreciate the time and effort that every

u ball team 

The Elmhurst girls' 
varsity volleyball team 
came home with their 
first victory last week 
over the Adams Central 
Jets in a dual meet 
against Adams Central 
and Northrop. This 
victory gave the girls a 1- 
3 overall record. 

The clock ran out on 
Elmhurst in the first 
game, and they were 
defeated 12-14. The 
Trojans bounced back to 
take the next two games 
15-12 and 16-14. 

However, in the second 
match, the Trojans faced 
a very strong Northrop 
team and were up-ended 
by the Bruins with scores 
of 1-15 and 3-15. 

Prior to this match, 
Elmhurst squared off 
with the Norwell Knights 
on Sept. 30 in a home 
game for the Knights. 
The varsity squad was 
routed by Norwell 10-15 
and 8-15, while the 
reserves came home with 
a 16-14 and 15-11 victory.

It's World Series time again, sports fans, and time for 
me to stick my neck out by making the Cincinnati Reds a 
7-2 favorite over the Boston Red Sox. 

Let's take a look at the Reds who won the National 
League West Division with 108 games against 54 losses. 

Leading off is Charlie Hustle, better known as Pete 
Rose. Pete batted .317. Batting second and my choice for 
the National League's Most Valuable Player Award is 
Joe Morgan. Joe did everything this year except sell 
peanuts, popcorn, and Cracker Jack. Joe's credentials are 
17 home runs, 94 RBI's, 107 runs scored, 60 stolen bases, 
and hit .327. Not bad for 5'8" and 175 lbs. Johnny Bench, 
the finest catcher in the business, bats third. J.B. 
knocked in 110 runs and hit .283. The cleanup spot is 
owned by Tony Perez who batted .283 with 109 RBI's. 
Maybe the biggest surprise for the Reds this year was 
George Foster, who will bat in the fifth position. George 
hit .300, 23 home runs, and knocked in 78 runs. Dave 
Concepcion, a super fielder and a good hitting shortstop, 
bats sixth. The Reds have a super fast speed demon 
batting in the seventh position is Ken Griffey. To give 
you readers an idea of this man's speed. Ken beat out 37 
infield hits this season on his way to an impressive .305 
batting average. Batting eighth is Cesar Geronimo, 
better known for his cannon-like arm. Cesar hit .257 this 
past season. 

To compare Boston with Cincinnati is like comparing a 
colt with a full grown horse. Boston is still growing with 
such young players as Carlton Fisk, Jim Rice, Fred Lynn, 
Cecil Cooper, Juan Beniquez, and Tim Blackwell. 
It should be the Reds in five games at the most, a fast 
World Series, but no doubt a very interesting one with 
power, speed, good pitching, and great defense. Don't be 
surprised if Boston gets blasted in four games straight 
because nothing is going to stop the Big Red Machine.

Trojans victorious 'i. - 


The Elmhurst Trojans dropped 
their first game of the season to 
North Side as the Bruins obUgiated 
the Trojans 34-0. The Trojans 
bounced back quickly, however, as 
they defeated NorweU 19-0 and 
Concordia 14-7. 

There were few bright spots in the 
North Side • Elmhurst contest on 
Aug. 31 at the Bruins offense racked 
up 34 while the Trojans were 
stopped cold. 

Elmhurst got off to a great start 
as junior Curtis Paschal fumbled the 
ball on the first play of the game. 
North Side recovered on the Trojan 
30 yard line and drove down to the 
one where the Elmhurst defense 
came to life on a fourth down play 
and stopped the Bruins for one of 
the few times that night. Elmhurst 
was unable to move the ball and was 
forced to punt. The Bruins took the 
short punt on the Elmhurst 31 and 
this time wasted little time in 
finding the end-zone for six points. 
Afterwards, it was all North Side as 
the Bruins scored 28 additional 
points for a final score of 34-0. 

The next Friday found the 
Trojans at Norwell to face the 
Knights. Exactly one week after the 
Trojans had been defeated by North 

Side, Coach Herman had his players junior Dave Stein jumped on in the 

fired up and ready to win. Although end-zone for six points. Although 

the Trojans threatened many times the defense was very much 

during the first half, they failed to improved over the week before

half scoreless. This soon changed changes in the lineup. As assistant 

however as the second half opened coach Welbom put it, "We just 

with a much improved Elmhurst started playing football," 

defense held back the Knights and One significant factor however 

blocked the ensuing punt which was junior Moe Fink who kicked not 

only one field goal but two, one of 3; 
yards and the second of over 45 
yards, a new Trojan record. As th( 
gfun sounded to end the game the 
score board showed Elmhurst a 19.^ 

Elmhurat's second victory came 
last Friday as the Trojans defeatfti 
Concordia 14-0. The contest was 
pretty evenly played as both teams 
could really move the ball except foi 
a couple of occasions. The decidini 
factor was that the Trojans had 
more of these occasions than the 

Concordia scored first as the 
Cadets took a Trojan punt on their 
own 46 and drove the total yardage 
for six points. The kick was good 
and the Cadets led 7-0. 

Elmhurst came back on the first 
play of the second period as junior 
quarterback Brian Russell found 
junior Ron Culpepper all alone 
behind the Concordia secondary for 
a 57 yard touchdown. 

The final Trojan score came as the 
Trojans recovered a Concordia 
fumble on the Cadet 39 and junior 
Curtis Paschal broke away for 36 
yards and a TD. The score didn't 
change and the Trojans won 14-7.

[Play debuts Rov. 7 

Things have gone really 
smooth despite a few minor crises 
such as illness and memorizing 
lines," commented Mr. Don Goss, 
director of Elmhurst's upcoming 
play. "See How They Run." 

The opening night is Friday, 
November 7, at 8 p.m. The play is 
described as being a "farce" or an 
event that wouldn't normally 
take place in real life. Other 
performances of the comedy are 
on November 8. 14, and 15. 

Most of the set shows a wood 
finish. A fireplace and a set of 
double doors are a few added 

Since the setting of the play is 

in England, the costumes that 
will be used include a bobbie 
uniform and some priest collars. 

"It's hard to say exactly how 
long the play will last because we 
are still adding new ideas to the 
script." said Mr. Goss. "We do 
expect it to turn out well 

As for the final week of 
rehearsals, the cast will be trying 
to perfect their accents and 
finalize their onstage movements. 

Tickets are being sold by cast 
members and the stagecraft class 
for $1.50. Tickets will also be 
available at the door

GAME FOR A DANCE SPONSORED BY THE Student Council, and feat^^ring- Ashes- 
Two students "get down" with The Bump. 

Highlighting every year's 
Homecoming week activities is 
the crowning of the Homecoming 
queen. Eimhurst's 1975 
Homecoming was brightened by 
the announcement of its queen, 
senior Claudia Johnson, at 
halftime of the October 17 game 
with Homestead. Doing the 
honors of crowing Claudia was 
last years queen, Sara 

Thirteen other girls chosen by 
their respective classes presided 
as members of the court. The four 
girls making up the senior court 
were Bonnie Bunn, Mattie Cole, 
Lori Rietdorf. and Kim Yarman. 
Five were selected from the junior 
class. They were Kelly Auer. 
Karyn Heiney, Sheril 

Hornberger. Ann Oswalt, and 
Carmetta Walker. The 

sophomores chose Kim Burry, 
Grace Cole, Mary Hudleson. and 
Liz Macias as members of the 
sophomore court. 

The senior class came out on 
top as they were awarded plaques 
for both the best float and best 
hall decorations. Both were 
presented after the crowning of 
the queen. 

The theme of this year's 
Homecoming was "A Vision of 
Freedom." With this in mind 
clubs, homerooms, classes, and 
other willing groups built floats 
that were displayed the afternoon 
of Homecoming day during a 
parade around the EHS football 



It's not painful, it doesn't take 
a lot of time, it's good 
preventative medicine, and yet 
there are still hundreds of 
thousands of people who don't 
want any part of it -- and then 
they complain when the sickness 
finally happens. 

Well, the time has come again 
when Americans are asked to 
take to the polls -- apparently a 
fate worse than death (at least as 
bad as the black plague) -- and 
vote. In this year before the 
celebration of the bicentennial, it 
truly seems a poor sign. 

The truth has always been that 

a substantially large portion of 
American voters have neglected 
making the decisions. Recently 
added to that statistic is the 
unusually large number of voters 
aged 18-21 who don't vote. How 
much of this is unconcern, how 
much of it is anger and how much 
of it is lack of information? 

Apathy seems to be a sickness 
no one can cure. It takes an 
extraordinarily strong 
personality or issue to get an 
apathetic person to the poles. 

The angry have a point. They 
often view bureaucracy as the 
enemy of the people, but they 

should know by not voting they 
are only increasing their 
problems. Making a choice, one 
that comes closest to the 
individuals values can make a 

And finally, the uninformed. 
Half the time young voters have 
no idea where they can be 
registered. Registration can be 
done by any of the parties and can 
also be done at the courthouse. 

All in all, voting is an 
important part of the democratic 
process. It's a learning experience 
and it's a medicine that can't 
afford to be passed by. 

Every year, while student 
council elections and campaigns 
are worked on and sweated out, 
another group of students works 
for the parties and campaigns of 
city. state, and national 
governments. While acting 
mainly as errand runners and 
helpers for higher party officials, 
these young men and women 
comprise much of the backbone of 
the party and its work during 
election years. 

Most of the student workers 
help out on election day by 

handing out literature at the 
polls, checking those who have 
and have not voted, and offering 
rides and babysitting chores so 
that people may get to the polls. 
Students 18 or over may serve on 
the election board managing the 
poll books or acting as officials. 
Work starts bright and early at 6 
a.m. and continues most of the 
day. These are the basic services 
that gain winning votes. 

Junior Anita Boyer has been 
working year round for the 
Democratic party since the ninth 
grade. Her duties have included 

polling voters as to what party 
they belong to, if they are 
registered, and other general 

Working for the Republicans, 
junior Randy Girod has been 
mailing letters, sponsoring 
rallies, and walking precincts 
with Bob Armstrong. On the 
value of student involvement, 
Randy commented, "We, the 
students, learn a lot, and it gets 
everybody interested in 
government" ...which is what it is 
all about!

over Homecoming 

Monday. October 13, the first 
day of Homecoming week was 
balloon day. The cheerleaders 
sold helium balloons to all spirit 
minded students, who were al- 
lowed to carry the balloons along 
with them to all classes. 

Tuesday, October 14, was both 
sock and hat day. Students wore 
their most absurd combinations 
of the two. 

Wednesday, October 15, 
marked the Student Council 
sponsored Bicentennial 
Wednesday. Trojans were asked 
to wear their all-American red, 
white, and blue. Remarkably the 
cafeteria staff participated in this 
spirit day by wearing old 
fashioned bonnets and long 

The next day, October 16, 
students came to school decked 
out in their "Sunday best" to 
take part in the success of Dress 
Up day. 

The final day of Homecoming 
week, the day of the game, was 
Dress Down day or Tramp day. 
Many students dressed in their 
worst closet combinations. 

Following the Homecoming 
came, the activities of the week 
were far from concluded. The first 
dance of the year, sponsored by 
the Student Council, proved to be 
successful. Present students of 
Elmhurst, as well as alumni, were 
invited back to Elmhurst for the 
event. Many turned out to listen 
to the tunes of "Ashes" providing 
the entertainment. 

A HAPPY HOMECOMING QUEEN, senior Claudia Johnson, receives a hug fro

David Crosby and Graham Nash are still 
painting ■■ word pictures that is — and their 
latest work, Wind on the Water testifies to it 

Although many of the melodies give the 
listener a feeling of deja vu (not the album, the 
concept), the album still gives a strong effect 
because of its lyrics. One exception to the rule 
about the melodies comes in Part A, Critical 
Mass of the song To the Last Whale. This 
short introduction to the song is purely a 
harmonic, acappella study and is one of the 
most beautiful parts of the record. 

Wind on the Water is a mood album. I 
reacted differently to the song Mama Lion 
every time I heard it; sometimes I loved it, 
sometimes it bored me. However, it only 
seemed to underscore the fact that Crosby and 
Nash are writing poetically. 

Some of the best songs on the album are 
Carry Me, Naked in the Rain, Bittersweet, and 
Homeward Through the Haze. Two excellent 
songs on the record are songs of protest. The 
first, Fieldworker is about migrant workers. 
To the Last Whale is a plea to save the whales 
which are being hunted to extinction. 

The two songwriters also have the aid of 
James Taylor and Carole King providing back- 
up vocals, and members of King's band play 
many of the instrumental parts. 

If you're looking for new melodies and ex- 
treme variations in style forget this album, 
but if you want a portrait in words, this album 
will provide some of the best enjoyment. 

Mr. Brugh gets 

what he deserves 

To the editor: 

1 would like to express my 
views on a subject that is rarely 
delved into in letters to the editor. 
It's about a particular teacher 
who deserves much praise. 

I'm proud to be a student under 
this man, I feel he really cares 
about me and my classmates in 
our learning and progressing. 

This teacher would be defined 
by all his students as most 
definitely the finest teacher in his 
field in the Midwest. He is very 

much respected by his pupils. His 
knowledge is great, and the 
rapport with his students is 

I'm truly honored to be a 
student here at Elmhurst and he 
and his organization are one of 
the reasons why. 

I'm sure every band member 
would join with me in saying - 
Thank you, Mr. Randy Brugh, 
I'm proud to be directed by you. 
A Very Proud Band Member 

To the Editor: 

I usually don't go around 
knocking schools, and I don't 
mean to put this one down, but I 
think that teachers don't do 
enough to stop a fight. They act 
like they are afraid to stop it. I 
see this every damn time! I don't 
know how to stop this, but I think 
teachers should go right up to a 
fight and stop it instead of yelling 
for help from the office.

JUNIOR MOE FINK ATTEMPTS a long field goal against Homestead. 

Trojans miss upset by 4 points 

The Elmhurat Trojans came up 
four points short of ending the 
1975 football campaign with the 
biggest upset of the season last 
Friday as the Trojans were 
outscored by Bishop Luers 34-30. 
The Trojans came out on the 
better end against Homestead 
defeating the Spartans 6-0 in a 
rain drenched, wind blown home- 
coming game, Oct. 17. 

Elmhurst went into the Luers 
contest as a 100-1 long shot 
according to Fort Wayne's 
"prognostic predictors", and as 
the dust cleared only four points

There is a major conflict that 
faces many high school athletes 
.oday. It is the acceptance of 
money for participating in 
sporting events. 

According to the IHSAA rules, 
no athlete can accept any item of 
intrinsic" value without losing 
his amateur status. In other 
words, if a player from the Elm- 
hurst basketball team was shoot- 
ing foul shots for money with a 
friend and won 50 cents, he would 
technically become a professional 
athlete and could not play 
basketball or participate in any 
high school sport again. That is 
utterly ridiculous. I cannot see 
why it would disqualify him from 
playing any other sport in high 
school, and for that matter. I 
cannot see why it should 
disqualify him from basketball. 

Professional" defined 

The Webster International 
Dictionary states that a 
professional is one who engages 
for a livelihood or gain in an 
activity pursued ... The key word 
is "gain." How much money or 
material goods should gain 
constitute? Where is the point 
where an amateur high school 
athlete becomes a professional 
athlete? If a high school athlete 
accepts money for participating 
in, say, basketball then why is he 
considered a professional in all 
other sports? He may never have 
played ping-pong in his whole life. 
but he is considered a 

professional ping-pong player and 
is excluded from amateur ping- 
pong events. 

I beUeve that the term "gain" 
should be given some monetary 
Standards should be specified 

There should be standards 
specifying the amounts of money 
and other royalties a high school 
athlete should be allowed to 
legally accept before he becomes a 
professional in his own personal 
sport. Below are some standards 
1 would set. 

1- Any high school athlete 
who receives $1000 or 

more a year will be con- 
sidered a professional 
athlete in that sport only. 

2- Any high school athlete 
who receives $1000 or more 
a year for any services 
connected with his sport 
will be considered a pro- 
fessional athlete in that 
sport only. 

3- Any high school athlete 
who receives SIOOO or more 
a year for endorsing 
commercial products will 
be considered a profes- 
sional athlete in that sport 
which he represents only. 

4- Any high school athlete 
who in any of the above 
three ways reaches a com- 
bined total of SIOOO dollars 
a year will be considered a 
professional athlete in the 
specific sport or sports 


way, both teams had a little 
trouble moving the ball the first 
time they got their hands on it. 
This trend didn't last long 
however, as Luers got on the 
score board with a 58 yard run 
around the right side of the line. 
Instead of being demorilized, the 
Trojans came back rather quickly 
as junior Curtis Paschall took the 
ball on the next play from 
scrimmage and went 81 yards to 
put the Trojans within a point of 
Luers. The game then turned into 
a see-saw battle with the Trojans 
taking the lead late in the first 
half on a four yard run by 
Paschall which made the score 14- 
13. Luers moved into a 15-14 half- 
time lead when junior John 
Stiffler was caught in the end- 
zone trying to punt. 

Threat Subsides 

Luers put the first points of the 
second half on the board and took 
a 28-14 lead as it looked like the 
Elmhurst threat was gone. 
Elmhurst came back however as 
junior quarterback Brian Russell 
took to the air and hit Ken Coker 
on a 37 yard pass for one score 
and then unleashed a 52 yard 
bomb to junior Ernie Starks that 
set up Paschall's third and final 
TD. However, the Knights slip- 
ped over for another score which 
was enough to hold off the Elm- 
hurst attack. 

Oct. 17 found the Trojans 
playing their annual homecoming 
game against the Homestaed 
Spartans in the worst conditions 

of the year. The weather took its 
toll early as the Spartans 
fumbled four times in the first 
half. However, the Trojans could 
only capitalize once out of the 
four recoveries. The fourth fum- 
ble proved fatal to the Spartans 
as junior Brian Russell took the 
ball over from the five for the 
games only score. 
"The weather played a big 
factor," commented Coach 
Herman. "The wind was so 
strong that we couldn't pass with 
any accuracy, and the rain, of 
course, didn't help the running 

Mental Atittude Down 

Coach Herman also made the 
comment that although the 
Trojans were not over confident 
against Wayne or Homestead, or 
psyched out by South Side, the 
team didn't quite have their usual 
mental attitude. "We weren't 
outplayed by South or Wayne; we 
beat ourselves." remarked Coach 
Herman, "On almost every play 
there was mental mistake, a 
missed block or a fake that was 
not carried out." 

The Trojans did lose their last 
game, but there were some people 
on the team that Coach Herman 
feels did an exceptional job. 
* 'Doraingo Garcia at offensive 
guard did well and he's only a 
sophomore," said Herman. "On 
defense. Randy Jansen at end and 
Jeff Heller at middle guard also 
did a good job during the last few

Trojans to a seventh place finish. 
It also enabled him to advance to 
the state meet this Saturday at 
the South Grove Golf Course in 

Tim covered the 2'/% mile course 
in a time of 12; 19, only 10 seconds 
behind the winner. Tim suffered 
from the flu in the early part of 

tne week preceding tne regional

regional meet and also had the 

individual winner in Mark Harris. 

Three other teams will also go 
to the state meet representing 
Fort Wayne. They are DeKalb, 
Northrop, and Goshen who 
placed second, third, and fourth, 

The Trojan harriers advanced 
to the regional by placing third in 
the Fort Wayne Sectional a week 
earlier at Shoaff Park. In this 
meet Tim Lee outran a large

As a team the Trojan Harriers 
have completed the best season

by Jan Dowling 

By bringing home five straight 
victories, the girls' volleyball 
team has boosted its overall 
standing to 6-6 and its SAC 
record to four wins against five 

The Trojans' first SAC win 
came over the North Side 
Redskins on Oct. 14 in 
Elmhurst's first home match. The 
Trojans took the first game 15-7, 
then lost 5-13, but fought back to 
win the third game and the match 

Trojans defeat Cadets, Hawks 

A few days later on Oct. 16, the 
Trojan team swept in two more 
victories over Concordia and 
Harding in the first match and 

easily defeated the Hawks 16-14 
and 15-7. 

In the second match of the 
evening against Concordia, the 
Trojans, still fired up from the 
previous win, battled the Cadets 
to win the first game 17-15. 
However, the second game 
proved not as lucky as the team 
fell 12-15. The final game of the 
evening clinched the win for 
Elmhurst as they routed the 
Cadets in another close 17-15 
game. The tired Trojan team had 
pulled it off again. 

The Trojans' fourth victory 
came on Oct. 20 over the 
Homestead Spartans. Playing on 
their own home territory, the 
Elmhurst voUeyballers trounced 

Homestead 15-9, 10-14, and 14-12. 
The final Elmhurst win was over 
the South Side Archers on 
Tuesday, Oct. 21. It took the 
team a while to get it all together 
as they lost their first game 10-15. 
However, this team's strong 
desire to win pulled them through 
the next two games with scores of 
15-3 and 15-8. 

Elmhurst falls to Wayne 

In the last game of the regular 
season, Elmhurst went up 
against a very strong Wayne 
team and fell to the Generals 13- 
10, 0-15. and 9-15. Even though 
the scores may not show it, 
Elmhurst gave the the Generals a 
good run for their money. The 
Trojans took the first game just 

as the clock ran out, but the very 
hard spikes from Wayne were too 
much for the Trojans as they lost 
their final games of the season to 
the Generals. 

Coach Cathy Russell com- 
mented on the team's winning 
streak, "All of a sudden the 
girls realized they needed to get 
in there and work together as a 
team." Apparently, this is the 
secret to the Trojan success. 

The 1975 volleyball sectionals 
will be held at Wayne High 
School Oct. 28, 29, and 30. Four 
teams will play on Tuesday night, 
four will play on Wednesday 
night, and the winners of those 
games will play on Thursday, 
Oct. 30.

The Landing is located on Weat Columbia Street, 
but is only one of the original five business blocks of 
Fort Wayne. Here was the first commercial area of 
Fort Wayne, thriving on the Wabash and Erie Canals, 
and later, on the railroad. What is now known as the 
Landing was located on the Orbison Basin turnaround 
where boats brought grain and goods right to the 
storefront docks and then turned around to head back 
down the canal. 

At first, in the early 1800's, the area was basically a 
mill district, containing saloons, hardware, leather 
shops, and leading hotels. Later on, in response to the 
changing times, it became basically a wholesale and 
warehouse district. Stores were originally made to face 
mainly the docks, not the street. Of the 2S00 
businesses to inhabit the area, only about 150 left 
permanent records. 
Area features firsts for area 

Firsts for the Landing include the first Fort Wayne 
drug store. Masonic lodge, and newspaper. Hotels 
were always found on the Landing. 

However, after extensive restoration in the 1960's, 
fire destroyed the major remnant of Fort Wayne, the 
Rosemarie Hotel. Also, Old Fort Drapery and various 
other businesses, totahng 27, were burned out last 
February. Presently, there are six businesses left on 
the Landing, but there is still hope for this historic 

Landing owners optimistic 

Mr. Ken Feeley, husband of Mrs. Nedra Feeiey who 
is president of the Landing Association and owner of 
the Mole Hole, indicated several options for the 
Landing. Presently, several parties are interested in 
the Rosemarie, owned by People's Trust Bank. It 
might possibly be preserved and used for office space, 
a bank, or even a restuarant. If not, it and the Old Fort 
Drapery shop would be torn down. Mr. Feeley warned 
that such action "would hurt the Landing. One third of 
the frontage of the Landing is in these structures." 

Some of the businesses left on the Landing inlude 
the Mole Hole. The Spectator, the Pickle, the Big 
Wheel, and Ma and Pa's Country Candy Store. 
However, Mr. Feeley doesn't feel it will close, due to 
the good safe location. 



The Spectator, owned and operated by Greg Jacobs 
and Joe Wood, was previously known as the Silver 
Screen. It is small, it seats only 93 people, but it's also 
small on the wallet. Standard admission costs only 
$1.50, less than half the money it costs to see a film at 
a larger theatre. 

Ore,,' had wanted to buy the theatre ever since he 
converted the building, which dates back to 1915, into 
a theatre for the previous owners. It has been The 
Spectator for ten months now. Greg and Joe are 
worried about The Landing, but plan to hold on as long 
as possible. 

The Spectator has shown films such as "Citizen 
Kane", "W.C. Fields", "Freaks", the original "King 
Kong", and "Harold and Maude", which is coming 
back in late November due to popular demand. 
According to Joe Wood, the theatre was opened "to 
show pictures the other commerical theatres don't 

Major motion pictures are shown for one week. 
Foreign films and lesser known films are shown for two 
nights in the middle of the week, usually on 
Wednesday and Thursday, due to the limited audience. 
The Spectator shows both GP and R-rated films; the 
ratio is about half and half. It also runs a series of 
experimental films. "The films," explains Steve 
Brown, film coordinator, "are done by independent 
artists. They are very personal, bke a poem or a piece 
of art." 

This year's film schedule includes such shows as 
"Cries and Whispers", "Macbeth", "Straw Dogs". 
"No Man of Her Own", starring former Fort Wayne 
resident Carole Lombard, "Trash", and "The Gold

Tim Lee strides to 5th 
place in Indy state finals 

by Verne Myers 

Cross country at Elmhurst has 
produced a great runner and 
competitor in junior Tim Lee, 
who placed fifth Saturday, Nov. 
1 at the state cross country meet. 
Tim outclassed most of the field 
with an impressive time of 
[2:14.2 for the 2 '/2-mile run at the 
SouLh Grove Golf Course in 

Competing in a field of 123 
runners from across the state, 
Tini took advantage of the fine 
ireather conditions to' not only 
attain a very high fifth place, but 
[0 achieve the highest underclass 
placement in this year's 
championship. In his second year 
stElmhurst, he has accompUshed 
more than most runners 
accomplish throughout high 
school. No other rumier in EHS 
history has performed this well at 

Personal sacrifice involved 

It is an effort that required 
much personal sacrifice and 
stamina. Tim advanced to the 
state finals as an individual 
winner rather than as a member 
of an advancing team. He was one 
of eleven individual runners at 
itate as compared to 16 teams of 
seven runners each. 

Leading up to sectionals, Tim 
consistently kept his times in the 
low 12 minutes, a consistency 
which finally paid off. He 
possesses the school record of 
12:04, a record which could well 
broken by Tim himself next 

Coach recognizes talent 

After a slow first meet, Tim 
igan to run well and get into 
good physical shape. Cross 
country coach Carter Lohr felt 
Tim had something going for him 
3fter the second meet. Although 
Tim might have surpassed even 
own expectations, Mr. Lohr 
Wasn't unaware of Tim's ability. 
Mr. Lohr recalled, "Tim had 
shown good potential last year in 
track. I'm not surprised." 

Even though Tim considers 
'litnself basically a team man, Mr. 
Lohr felt it was his greatness as 
^f individual that helped the 
•^am and that he deserves the 

Personal sacrifice is reflected in 
'he many miles run per week. A 

regular week might involve 35-40 
miles of running for Tim, 22 of it 
with the team. The team began its 
practice August 11, working out 
twice a day. Since school started, 
the harriers have been out every 
day after school, running and 
keeping in shape. 

Sectional win 'encouraging' 

At the beginning of the year, 
Tim figiired the only way he could 
make it to state would be with the 
team. However, during the year, 
he performed strongly and after 
he won at sectionals, Tim felt 
very "encouraged." 

Over the summer, Tim bdgan 
working out in July, going out 
whenever he found the time or felt 
like it. He participated in North 
Side summer track meets which 
were open to anyone who wanted 
to participate. Tim also involved 
himself in the Junior Olympics 
sponsored by the AAU, a series of 
meets beginning at the sectional 
level and ending at the national 

Strategy pays off 

Strategy plays an important 
part in cross country, and Tim 
was evidently successful at it. At 
state, a quick pace was es- 
tablished, and as a result, Tim 
hung back to wait his turn. Bad 
weather isn't necessarily bad

Organizing club 
not impossibility 

Tired of the same old classes? Mad that there aren't any activities 
for you? Well, it doesn't have to be that way. Not that we mean 
dropping out of school is the answer, but if you want improvements, 
the best thing to do is ask for them. 

Getting a new course or club started is no> an Impossibility. Take 
for example the new consciousness raising group which was sUrted 
when a few young women decided that somebody needed to get 
people's heads together on the issue of feminine equality. The girls 
took their idea to an administration member w'ho they knew would 
help them get the idea off the ground. Getting the idea was the most 
important step and then finding a faculty sponsor brought the 
whole project together. _ > 

Getting a new course started may take a bit more effort, but it 
can be well worth the time. It can be very hard to do. but, if enough 
students want it, they just might get it. This year there is a 
curriculum committee studying Elmhurst courses. Input into that 
group could prove extremely helpful. Of course, there are 
Umitations concerning teachers and what they are legally quaUfied 
to teach, but if that is not a problem, getting the class might not be 

Finally, one word to the wise ■- be tactful. Protesting loudly and 
threatening will get you nowhere. Constructive bargaining of ideas 
could lead to an even better club or class than you expected. 

So if you want it, don't think you can't get it (constructively, of 
course), if you just tell someone your ideas. Communication break- 
^_^___^^.^_ downs don't have to exist •- they're only there if you let them be. 

Cost gets it together 

for ^'See How They Ruri'' 

by Barb Harman 

Every year we are amazed at how well the 
annual play comes off, and this year, despite 
a weak play, we are amazed again, especially 
at the superlative performances by many of 
the cast members. 

See How They Run is a comedy with some 
clever lines~and interspersed doses of 
slapstick. The plot centers aroupd character 
mix-ups involving a Russian spy, a bishop, 
English vicars, and a soldier. The story it- 
self does not really bring itself together, but 
the acting manages to pull off the farce. 

The best performance of the evening 
undoubtedly came from senior Melissa 
Hunter as the prim Miss Skillon who ends 
up drunk. The part itself is probably the 
best as far as character development goes, 
but Melissa manages to bring off the role to 
its height. 

Another job of good acting comes from 
senior Nancy Beadie as Penelope Toop, the 
vicar's wife. Despite the fact that her part is 
at times (particularly in the first act) an 
unlikable one, she too hits home some good 
lines and enhances the performance. 

Other excellent character performances 
were those of Clive, portrayed by senior 
Tom Young; Ida, portrayed by junior Leslie 
Collier; and the vicar, played by sophomore 
John Silletto. 

The technical aspects of the play were 
sound and, all told, the production went 
well. The lighting and sets came off without 
a hitch. 

Although the play develops rather 
chaotically and ends with an anti-climax, 
the players have still managed to bring the 
play off and amaze us once again. 

Tardy policy conf uses# 
cafe collisions hurt 

To the Editor: 

I would Uke to talk about a 
school policy that doesn't make 
much sense. That policy is the one 
that says that if a person has 
three tardies, he can be 
suspended from school. I can 
understand that the school would 
like to cut down on tardies, but 
under this rule, it seems that the 
student would be wiser not to 
come to school - at least he has 
ten absences. 

It seems that if the school 
wants to cut down both absences 
and tardies, suspending someone 
after three tardies may help one, 
but not the other. I don't know 
«]vhat to suggest, perhaps giving 
•Ive tardies or using another form 
t/ punishment, but at the 
njoment, I think moat students 

would rather and could afford 
better to lose three days of school 
for legal reasons instead of 

A confused student 

To the editor: 

Colliding with others while 
either entering or exiting is a 
problem most of us face when we 
confront the cafeteria duriiig 
lunch. What do we do about it? 

One way of alleviating this 
problem might be to designate 
certain doors for entering and 
exiting. Well, I'm no genius but 
with the help of all you guys, your 
suggestions and/or solutions 
could eliminate mass confusion. 

Beach Boys reach 
two generations 

by Roberta Cohen 

"The 'older generation' hates the thought of those 
awful rock concerts." ';The only reason young kids like 
the concerts held at the Coliseum is because then they 
can smoke dope without getting caught." "Those 
concerts arejust a bunch of noise." 

These quotes are often heard around concert time. 
Recently, however, a concert was held at the Memorial 
Coliseum that would make these quotes look illogical 
and backward. * 

The group? Try the Beach Boys on for size. And 
with them? None other than Ambrosia. 

Age groups amaze 

The assortment of age groups present at the concert 
was amazing to the regular concert-goer. There were 
little kids, teenagers, the usual hard-rock hippies, and 
shock of all shocks, adults. 

Now, you ask yourself, why on earth were there 
adults? The Beach Boys have been around for 
approximately two decades, which means that, since 
they were popular from the very beginning, our 
parents would have had to be their fans. Although ^ 
their music has changed somewhat, they still are the 
talented, creative group that they were twenty years 
Twenty more years? 

There really isn't much that can be said about 
Ambrosia. One almost felt like he was seeing a version 
of "Now ya see it, now ya don't". Ambrogia played six 
songs and then disappeared from the stage for good. 
Sixty minutes later, the star group, the BEACH 
BOYS, appeared and in most people's opinion, more 
than made up for Ambrosia. Two decades from now. 
maybe our children will be reviewing the same group 
we're looking at today.

by Verne Myers 

Once again, another movie, "Let's Do It Again," 
has come up with a top billing. Bill Cosby and Sidney 
Poitier, to attract moviegoers, and this time, the movie 
doesn't stop there in its interest or entertainment. 
While not a blockbuster like so many recent movies, 
"Let's Do It Again" comes off as a funny farce of 
amateur versus professional, and of the successful 
little man knocHing off orgaruzed crime in its own ring. 
Evidently, crime doesn't pay unless you're the good 
guy reaping the profits. 

The interest centers on the talents of Cosby and 
Poitier who carry the merely so-so storyline and 
fashion it into a movie worth watching. The plot 
centers on the efforts of Cosby and Poitier to obtain 
money, legally or illegally, for their denomination to 
construct a new church and social center. 

Con artist tactics, luck, and hypnotism are used to 
set the scene for the middleweight championship fight 
of the world. With Sidney Poitier the hypnotist and 
Bill Cosby the con artist, the two from Atlanta set 
about influencing the outcome of the fight. In the 
realistic sense, the movie is a bit hard to swallow, but 
this contributed to the overall farce. Between two 
organized gangs, Cosby and Poitier bet against the 
odds and came out ahead. 

Poitier conjures up his hypnotism from years back, 
saving our heroes from certain disaster, and finally 
convincing the underdog middleweight challenger, 
played by Jimmy Walker, that he can win. Walker 
wins the fight, and Cosby and Poitier win the money. 
Unfortunately, they also gain the attention of the rival 
street gangs, and the remainder of the movie is spent 
in a cat and mouse game of who hypnotized whom. 

In the end, true to form, the bad guys lose out, the 
church gets its money, and everybody is happy. 
Nothing is left to chance as even the fighters knock 
each other out in the first round. It is not the best of 
movies, but it comes out as good entertainment.

Arcade slated Nov. 22 

The Student Council has 

decided to sponsor the After- 


Football Season, Pr^Basketball 

Season Penny Arcade for the 

second consecutive year. The 


Arcade is scheduled for Saturday, 


Nov. 22. The festivities will begin 


at 7:00 p.m. sharp and will end at 

10:00 p.m. 


Periodically' throughout the 


night, musical entertainment of 

some sort will be provided in the 


Elmhurst gym. but at all times 


there will be approximately forty 


different activities ranging from 

pinbaU machines to a dance 

marathon for those in attendance 

to enjoy. 

Other scheduled activities 
include a ring toss for cokes, a 
spin art booth, a cupcake world, a 
cake walk, a "shave the balloon" 
and a pie-eating contest. Another 
activity is the Quill & Scroll 
sponsored "Spookhouse" which 
will be located in the tunnels 
underneath the school. The 
Spookhouse was the most popular 
activity in iast year's Arcade, and 
indications are that it will be one 
of the better ones this year. 

Besides the activities 
sponsored by Elmhurst's clubs 
and classes, fifteen other schools 
have also been invited to bring 

their ideas to Elmhurst. These 
schools are Snider, South Side, 
Concordia. Bishop Luers. Bishop 
Dwenger, North Side, Northrop, 
Homestead, Wayne, Harding. 
Heritage,Carroll,and New Haven 
high schools and also Kekionga 
and Portage Junior High Schools. 
Attendance last year was 
estimated at about 600, and it is 
likely that this figure will be 
matched or bettered this year. 
Cost of admittance is fifty cents, 
and tickets to activities will be 
sold for a dime. Most activities 
will cost only one ticket although 
some will be two or three, but 
none will be more than three. 

NFS selects Gary, Ueale for abroad 

foreign exchange program, junior Vance Veale 
and senior Matt Cary, hope for acceptance by the 
screening committee. 

Every year, the American Field Service Club 
at Elmhurst picks two candidates to be ex- 
change students to foreign countries. This year 
the club has chosen senior Matt Cary and 
junior Vance Veale to fill these positions. 

Matt and Vance were selected from a total of 
eight foreign language students. They filled 
out an application and then were interviewed 
by a selection committee made up of teachers, 
adult AFS members, and one student. On the 
basis of how welP-they answered the selection 
committee's questions, the two were chosen. 

Personality judged closely 

Both of the recipients have elected to be 
abroad during the next school year. Whether 
they will be chosen for this program will 
depend upon how many other students from 
around the country want to be abroad at that 
time and how many positions are available. 
Their other choice is to go to a country during 
the summer for three months. 

The cost for one person going abroad for the 
school year is $1800. For the summer, the cost 
is SHOO. A large share of both amounts goes 
toward transportation. 

One of the major requirements of being 

chosen to visit a foreign country is good 
health. The applicants were not judged on their 
grades in school. The judging consisted mostly 
of personality questions and how they 
, answered them. 

Interviews, interviews, and more interviews 

For both Matt and Vance, the next step is 
another mterview at their homes. The 
interviewers will ask them more questions and 
at the same time talk to their parents to get to 
know them. 

After completing that interview, they fill out 
yet another form which is actually 
interview, just on paper. When they have 
answered all those questions, they send it to 
New York to the American Field Service office 
there. After that, they wait to see what 

On the financial side, both families will be 
expected to pay as much of the money as they 
are able to. The AFS will supply the balance. 

If selected for the school year program, both 
Vance and Matt will be gone froin 
approximately August of 1976 to July of 1977. 

Pro ject: Awareness 
gets started at ehs 

Newell places in 
FFA competiHon 

When asked about Project: 
Awareness, the newly founded 
consciousness-raising group. Ms. 
Dinah Cashman stated, "There is 
a definite need for young women 
at EHS to form a cohesive group 
and become aware of the issues 
that confront all people, 
especially women, today, 
realizing that alternative choices 
DO exist for all." 

Project: Awareness got started 
when juniors June Gordy and 
Leslie Collier approached Ms. 
Cashman with the idea. Seniors 
Marilynn Scherer and Barb 
Harman joined in, and since then 
the force has grown. 

After two meetings, the group 
has approximately ten members, 
not including sponsor Dinah 

Cashman. The goals and 
determinations of the young 
ladies involved, however, are 
twice the size of the group. 

Upcoming projects are 
attending a feminist meeting, 
and setting up a "Women's Day" 
in celebration of International 
Women's Year. 

The meetings are rap sessions 
where members discuss issues, 
viewpoints, and solutions. There 
is no president or vice-president - 
just a group of equally interested 
young women. 

If the enthusiasm continues, 
Elmhurst can expect to hear a lot 
more from Project: Awareness.

Elmhurst's senior Mark Newell 
recently returned from Biloxi, 
Miss, where he along with Cris 
Cary, a 1975 EHS graduate, and 
Scott Hyndman, a senior at 
Northrop, participated in the 
National Junior Horticulture 
Association championships. The 
three advanced to the national 
level after taking state honors at 
the Indiana State Fair last July. 

Mark, Cris, and Scott 
competed in the FFA (Future 
Farmers of America) division in 
both the state and national 
contests. Other divisions of 
competition included 4-H honors 
and open. The team placed third 
in the national FFA contest 
directly below Ohio and Kansas, 
who won first and second 
respectively. Third place winners 
were awarded both a certificate 

and an emblem. 

While in Mississippi, the trio 
also attended workshops aside 
from the competition. Several of 
the horticulture seminars 
involved corsage construction, 
plant materials, and tropical 

The three were among 35 other 
horticulture students who won 
the all expenses paid trip. The 
group met in Indianapolis 
October 31 and traveled via bus

Mark became aware of the 
NJHA and its contests through 
his teacher at morning RVC, Mr. 
Reynaldo Rodriguez. Mr. 
Rodriguez also accompanied the 
group to Mississippi, 

While at RVC, Mark studies 
horticulture which includes 
land. leaping and greenskeeping.

@ jQ Winners named for tennis awards 

Due to the fact that the Trojan 
tennis team ended their season in 
high fashion with an excellent 10- 
4 record, Coach Horn commented 
"More people deserved 
recognition than just one player,'* 
as he explained the reasons for 
three tennis awards that are new 
to Elmhurst this year. 

In its first year, the "Most 
Valuable Tennis Player" award 
goes to junior Tim Springer. Tim 
played both singles and doubles 
throughout the season and 
played also in sectional action. 

The "Most Valuable Doubles 

Team" award will be given this 
year to the very successful team 
of seniors Greg Nowak and Terry 
Sims. This team boasted an 
excellent 9-1 record and the best 
in Elmhurst tennis history. 

The first recipient of the 
"Match Point Award" is senior 
Stan Sorgan. This award is 
presented to the senior tennis 
player who contributes most to 
the team, his coach, and himself, 
by displaying ability, 

sportsmanship, leadership, and 
an outstanding attitude. 

The "Outstanding Tennis 

Player Award" which is given 
every year will go to seniors 
Kevin Lee and Stan Sorgen as the 
best overall players. 

Coach Horn is looking forward 
to next year and a great season. 
He feels that with the experience 
of the six returning lettermen, 
and some new^ talent in from the 
junior highs, next year's team 
will have a lot of depth and could 
even improve over this year's 

The Elmhurst wrestling team 
will begin the 75-76 season Dec. 2 
when it faces Bellmont here at 
home. Forty potential wrestlers 
showed up this year for the team 
which has been practicing two 
hours a day. including Saturdays, 
since Oct. 15. 

Carrion and junior 

\rlla Walker look on 

With four weeks of basketball 
practice under their belts, the 
basketball team and coach Ken 
Eytcheson are looking forward to 
this season with much optimism. 
Coach Eytcheson stated that this 
year's team will be bigger but still 
one of the smaller teams in the 
city which seemingly is fast 
becoming an Elmhurst tradition.

Have you ever heard that 
saying, "The bigger the better?" 
Well, it's all wrong. It should be 
changed to "The smaller the 
better." At least in the case of the 
girls' volleyball team. We can 
confidently say that not one girl 
on the starting six towered over 
5'6" and they still compiled an 
jnpressive 6-6 record. In our eyes 
these girls are giants ... well, at 
least small people with giant 
hearts who gave it everything 
they had. For those of you who 
denied yourselves the chance to 
see the girls' volleyball team in 
action, we can only say. "Go see 
them next year." , 

You might wonder how a 
volleyball match can be exciting. 
Don't worry ... you're normal; 
that is the very question we asked 
last year. It was answered at the 
first volleyball match we 
attended last year and again this 
year. This year's team was unique 
because of its height, but they 
showed a team spirit unmatched 
by any other Ehnhurst team that 
we have observed including the 
football team. 

Dedication is the one word that 
best describes the girls who 
participated in volleyball this 
year. Just seeing one of the girls 
throwing herself onto the floor 
playing the ball out of the net and 
entually wiiming the point, or 
ie*^g her dive into the floor to 
an_impos3ible shot just 


makes us wonder what makes her 
take this sport so seriously. 
Dedication is the answer. What 
made ten girls who hardly ever 
got to play sit through 1 2 
matches plus sectionals and keep 
cheering them on with the 
enthusiasm of opening night? 
Again, the answer is dedication. 

During the teachers' strike, we 
happened to be at school while the 
gu-ls were practicing volleyball. 
At that time, we envisioned a 
perfect record for the girls, 0-12. 
They were small, uncoordinated, 
and had little experience. When 
we looked at their 6-6 record, we 
just couldn't believe our eyes. 
Much credit should go to Coach 
Catherine Russell who molded 
these girls into a working team, 
but most of the credit should go 
to the girls who had to be the 
smallest team in the city and 
possibly in the state of Indiana. 

Next year should be a very 
good yeai' if one can look at the 
improvement made over the last 
two years. The girls have really 
gotten it together and should be a 
real contender next year. , 

Although they were small, 
young, and hghtly taken, the 
girls' volleyball team was a very 
big surprise and we just want 
them to know that we were 
"impressed". We would also like 
to congratulate these girls who 
showed fine sportsmanship in 
some very trying times and 
believe me there were many. 

jftOfH t4e ^detUeA 

by Marilynn Scherer 

Season after season, people 
hear the same excuses. This year, 
instead of passing off these 
complaints as "cheap excuses to 
compensate failure," I'd like to 
give you some of the common 
examples - evidence proving that 
girls' sports at Elmhurst has 
indeed been shortchanged. 

1. The uniform dilemma. 
Everyone seems to be able to 
afford new uniforms. While the 
teams that receive them are well 
deserving - the fact is: Girls' 
volleyball, basketball, and teniuB 
all used the same uniforms. 
Would any other team put up 
with something like that? 

2. Warm-up jackets were 
purchased last year -- not the 
pants, mind you, just the jackets. 
The basketball and gymnastic 
teams (who have simultaneous 
seasons) both used them; the 
problem here was that there were 
not enough jackets for both 
teams. The schools that Elmhurst 
competes against do not seem to 
have this problem. 

3. Several area high schools 
served oranges during the half- 
time of their respective home 
basketball games. Elmhurst, 
however, could not afford to 
return the favor. 

4. The gym, which is in 
constant use from 2:35 until 9 in 

the evening, is allotted to the 
girls' basketball team from 7 to 9. 
However, one particular night 
last year, the girls were forced to 
practice upstairs, because the 
track team needed to practice 
pole-vaulting. This practice, by 
the way, was on an evening before 
a game. Could any other team be 
pushed out just for a practice? 

These are just a few; the point 
is simply that the girls always get 
the shaft. The treatment they 
receive would never be dished out 
to the boys' teams. Why should 
the girls bave to put up with it? 

To economize, we could have 
bought just the jerseys for the 
football team - but Elmhurst 
didn't, and should not. Sport 
teams deserve the respect of 
being dressed in good uniforms. 

The shafting and 

shortchanging of girls sports has 
got to stop - any athlete putting 
out the effort deserves the best. It 
is possible to divide use of the 
gym equally without exception. 
Equality is the only fair way. 

Elmhurst and the programs 
within are supported mainly by 
our tax-paying parents. It is only 
fair that every student, 
regardless of sex, be allowed to 
reap the benefits of education and 
extra-curricular activities. After 
all, isn't that what school is all

DECH sponsors season dance 

Each year the Christmas 
holiday is filled with gift-giving, 
decorations, and various social 
gatherings, such as open houses, 
parties, and dances. This year 
proves to be of the same nature as 
the DECA (Distributive 
Education Clubs of America) 
Clubs of Fort Wayne are 
sponsoring a Christmas dance. 

Featuring a live band by the 
name of Choice, the dance will be 
held on Sunday, December 21 at 
the I. U. -Purdue Ballroom. 
Festivities will begin at 9:00 p.m. 

and end at 1:00 a.m. 

Tickets for the serai-formal 
holiday occasion can be obtained 
from any DECA member or in 
Room 217 at $3.50. 

The DECA program wras 
organized to promote on-the-job 
training for students still in high 
school. The program is based on 
the idea that experience is one of 
the key qualities in landing a job 
in today's market. 

Profits from the dance will be 
used in one of two upcoming 
projects. The money will either 
help fund a national DECA 

center or pay for a bus to the 
annual DE state contest. 

Last year a Christmas dance 
was sponsored by the EHS 
Student Council, also a semi- 
formal occasion. The 74 dance 
was, indeed, a success. This 
year's dance is sponsored by aU 
area high school DECA clubs, 
which should bring in not only 
more people, but a wider variety. 

So, dry clean your good suit 
and bring that good dress out of 
the moth balls, Christmas is here, 
celebrate by attending the DECA 
sponsored dance.

Ethos (Ardour) in the 
Elmhurst gymnasium after the

Attendance was somewhat

still broke even financially. The 
attendance was somewhat cut 
into because of SAT's for many 
seniors the next morning. 

The group was very well

what will probably be Ethos' 
last appearance in a high

Mrs. Jane Lesh and Mrs. Nancy 
Morse. Mrs. Lesh, who student 
taught this fall with Mr. Al 
Schmutz, will direct the choir in 
two numbers. Mrs. Morse, wife of 
orchestra director John Morse, 
will perform a harp solo. 

The cost of admission will be 

And presenting the 
consensus of those attending, 
senior Mike Maurer said, "I 
was impressed." 

There were some problems 
with people breaking rules at 
the concert, and the possibility 
of another performance of this 
type seems rather remote, at 
least as far as this year is 
concerned. According to 
student council president Tom 
Sonday, "It's too bad that a 
few rowdies have to ruin it for 
the rest." 

$1. Tickets are available through 
any vocal music student or at the 

Elmhurst's concert choir also 
performed last Sunday at the 
Christ Child's Festival in the 
Memorial Coliseum. The half- 
hour performance featured Allen 
Shaw soloing in "The Shepherds' 
Chorus" from "Amahl and the 
Night Visitors." Also featured 
was Carole Stanley, flutist, in 
"Flute Gloria."

Any business law student can probably tell you 
that riding in a police car and seeing the action is 
nothing hke Adam-12, Dragnet, or any of those 
other TV dramas. There's a big difference. 

Recently, a program initiated by Mrs. Sharon 
Banks, in cooperation with the Fort Wayne Police 
Department, enabled business law students to learn 
law enforcement first hand. 

On the appointed day, the students met near the 
office, and three students were assigned to each 
police car. From then on, the experience and 
education of law took over. 

One car met up with some odd incidents. First of 
all, an elderly man went the wrong way down a one 
way street, thus causing an accident. This was 
followed by a slight accident involving two cars. 
These incidents all happened in the short time that 
the students rode along. 

On the criminal side, this same car was involved 

in investigating an incident where a man drove 
away without paying a gas attendant. 

The students had the opportunity to learn the ins 
and outs of law enforcement. They also participated 
in such maneuvers as frisking, learning how to use 
some of the equipment, and reading the code 
numbers used on the police band stations. Police 
representatives plan to visit EHS to demonstrate 
the use of some of the other equipment, such as the 
speed guns. 

The ride along program is still experimental. The 
danger involved could cause the poUce department 
to discontinue the program. Incidents involving 
shooting could cause legal and moral complications. 

Hopefully, the program will be successful and be 
able to continue to give people a better 
understanding of law enforcement and our city

Life dangerous 
for girl symnasts 

by Tom Sonday 

Girls' athletics are growing bigger and better every year in 
Indiana and for that matter, across the nation. Unfortunately, 
it now appears as though Elmhurst will be behind in this 
Gymnastics equipment dangerous to users 

Every girls" team has had a few injustices done, but 
probably the team with the best and most obvious complaints 
is the gymnastics team. The things that these girls have to put 
up with are really unbelievable. For example: Last year every 
school, (with the possible exception of South Side), that the 
team visited had better equipment than Elmhurst. Wayne, for 
example, has two of just about every piece of equipment that 
Elmhurst has one of. And Elmhurst's equipment is in 
wretched shape. The large balance beam is wobbly and some- 
what "exciting" to work on to say the least, and the unevens 
are really dangerous. They have to be tightened after each use 
to prevent them from slipping, and injury could easily result if 
a girl forgot to tighten them. 

School cooperation needed 

What's more, cooperation within the school is almost nil. 
The team must put their mats down in the cafeteria, because 
they can't be lifted to move them upstairs. All tables in the 
mat area, of course, have to be moved and then put back. This 
is no problem, but the custodial staff insists that the tables be 
put back exactly six tile squares apart, and the chairs must 
also be put exactly in line. There is no obviously good reason 
for this. 

Money is being spent by the athletic department on boys- 
sports. The football team got new helmets and new home 
uniforms this year. It seems kind of funny that these can be 
afforded with almost no hassle, while gymnastics equipment 
can't be. The prejudice is obvious, and it's time that the entire 
school, (not just the girls), stood up for girls' athletics.

Trojans fall twice 
over weekend 

taking a shot against Muncie South in Elmkurst's basketball season 

jCFrom both sicies% 

by Marilyon Scherer 

We thought it would be 
interesting if Coach Kenny 
Eytcheson and Coach Lucy 
Doswell would switch 
positions with Coach 
Eytcheson taking over the 
girls' basketball team and 
Coach Doswell, the varsity 
team for a practice. Scene 
opens with Coach Doswell 
taking roll 

DOSWELL: (Sharp 

whistle blown followed by 
shrilling scream) "O.K., 
hold the balls. Do we have 
enough people for a 
scrimmage? (No answer) 
Well, last night we had . 
nine girls here and had to 
play the starting five 
against four of our 
sophomores, and the 
sophomores won." 

don't remember that." 

that's because you weren't 
there Curtis." 

STARKS: "Then why 
ya tellin' us about itV" 

DOSWELL: "I'm trying 
to give you an example so 
that win or lose no matter 
what, I want you to act 
like ladies." 

while, upstairs in the girls' 
gym, Coach Eytcheson is 
having his problems with 
the girls. 

right, let's take a head 

and Kevin Lee 

count, 2,4.7,8,9- NINE!!! 
We don't even have 
enough for a scrimmage. 
Where's the tall one with 
the cute long legs:" 

QUANCE: "KeUy's got 
a date tonight. She went 
home early to wash and 
set her hair." 

you can tell Kelly that she 
can go on a date any 
night she wants to from 
now on, because she won't 
be practicing with us any 

DOWLING: "That's aU 
right with me. That leaves 
the center position open. " 

but we don't have a 

QUANCE: "You need a 
lot more than a stepladder 
- you're so short that you 
can play hand ball on 
street curbs!" 

Let's go four on four — 
Gordy, you sit out. — 
What was that you said?" 

can see changing coaching 
positions would create a 
little havoc. But then 
havoc is created by people, 
and it's people that make 
things pretty interesting. 
More interest will be 
aroused in the next issue 
of the Advance as "FROM 
BOTH SIDES" continues. 

by Verne Myers 

Inconsistency and tack of 
experience have hampered a quick 
Elmhurst basketball team as it 
dropped two games last weekend 
after an opening victory here at 
Elmhurst over Muncie South, 59- 
51. Coming off of a hard fought 
68-66 loss to Bishop Luers Friday 
night, the Trojans couldn't 
recover at Harding the next night 
as the Hawks pulled away with a 
58-48 victory. 

Junior Ernie Starks led 
Elmhurst scoring with 18 points, 
but it wasn't enough as Elmhurst 
didn't show much offensive 
consistency the second half. 
Elmhurst now owns a 0-2 record 
in the SAC and a 1-2 record 

Coach Kenny Eytcheson 
remarked, "The team needs to 
gain experience. Starks is the 

only returning starter." Not only 
does the team lack experience, 
but it faces a city which is classi- 
fied as "very tough" this year. 

At Luers, Elmhurst led 
throughout the first three periods 
only to succumb to a ferocious 
Luers comeback in the fourth 
quarter. Again Starks led the 
Elmhurst scoring with 22 points 
followed by Johnnie White with 
10 points. A big Bishop Luers 
team outscored Elmhurst 24-12 in 
the final stanza to erase a 10 point 

Two weeks ago, the Trojans 
pulled off a 59-51 victory over 
Muncie South despite the large 
number of turnovers. ElmhUrst 
looked impressive the first 
quarter as they built a 17-12 lead. 
Raymond Walker and Mike 
Brewer led Elmhurst scoring with 
18 and 17 points respectively. 

LOOKING HIGH TO WARDS THE BASKET, senior Fred Underwood hopes i, 
he watches the futile attempt for two sorely-needed points. 

'JHatHt€K defeat 

by Jan Dowling 

The Elmhurst varsity wrest- 
ling team has brought home 
both a win and a loss. The victory 
for the Trojans came over the 
South Side Archers, 36-27, and 
their defeat in the first match of 
the 75-76 season came by the 
hand of Belmont High School. 

However, this first match of 
the season did show five winners. 
Competing in the 138 lb. class, 
returning lettermen Paul 
Freeman wrestled his opponent to 
a 9-4 victory. Likewise junior 
Nelson Almond , wrestling 145, 
out maneuvered his Belmont man 
with a 9-3 decision. Wrestling in 
the 155 and 185 classes 
respectively, senior Bill Monroe 

Sout^ SceU; 

and junior Mike Rush also matted 
their Belmont contenders. The 
only pin of the evening by an 
Elmhurst man came from junior 
Kenny Young. 

On Dec. 4, South Side met with 
defeat as the Trojans up-ended 
the Archers 36-27. The victors for 
Elmhurst in this match were. 
Steve Esterline, forfeit, Paul 
Freeman, 10-7, and Nelson 
Ahnond 16-1. Senior Bill Monroe 
also beat the South opponent 6-2, 
and Mike Rush also won his 
match with a 7-6 decision. 

The next wrestling match for 
the Trojans will be tomorrow 
night at 7 p.m. against Wajnie 
High School, followed five days 
later with a match at Dwenger.

Army pay was 


It's something to talk about now, because 
we've just raised it. Again. 

The Army starts you at »36 1 month (before 
deducltons)- That's what yfi-jHI earn while you 
learn a skill. 

If you qualify, you can choose to learn how to 
drive a tank, how lo build a bridge, how to use a 
camera, or how to do just about any kind of job 
you can think of. And we'll guarantee it in writ- 
ing, before you enlist. 

After four months you'll get a raise to $402 
And since so many things in the Army are free- 
meals, housing, medical and dental care— you 
can save a lot of it. And that's something to talk

Iowa tests to be administered 

AU seniors will be taking Iowa 
Tests the week after returning 
from Christmas vacation. On 
Thursday, Jan. 8, seniors with a 
last name beginning with A 
through Quick will be taking the 
test. The following day, seniors 
with a name beginning with Q 

through Z will be administered 
the test. All RVC students will be 
excused from their classes at the 
center of the appropriate day. 

The Iowa test is comparable to 
the Iowa tests administered to 
students in their freshman year. 
The results of both tests are 

Nouitshy wins VFW contest 

Elmhurst senior Les Novitsky 
was recently named city winner in 
the annual Voice of Democracy 
Broadcast Contest, sponsored by 
the Veterans of Foreign Wars. 

This year's topic for the 
speeches was "What our 
bicentennial heritage means to 
me." Participants in the contest 
wrote their speeches on this topic, 
tape recorded them, and then sent 
them to the local VFW post. 
There the speeches were heard by 
a panel of three judges. 

The speeches were judged on 
content, creativity, originality, 
and on the speech quality and 
voice delivery of the speaker since 
the judges had no visual contact 
with contestants. 

Les, the son of Mrs. Al 
Novitsky, 3443 North 

Washington Road, entitled his 
speech "Created by Man-Inspired 
by God." His speech stressed the 
themes of pride in our country 
and responsibility with which Les 
identifies very strongly. 

Les commented, "When they 
called and told me I had won, I 
felt extremely honored and proud. 
I hope to represent Fort Wayne 
well at the district contest." 

Les was awarded a $50 savings 
bond and will be a guest at a 
banquet where he will deliver his 
speech to VFW members. Les 
now has the chance to compete in 
the district contest at 
Kendallville on Jan. 16. If he wins

improvement and decline of 

The guidance department, 
according to guidance counselor 
Mr. Douglass Spencer, is making 
an effort to stress the importance 
of this test to all students. 
Explaining this importance, Mr. 
Spencer stated,^ "The Iowa tests 
are valuable in different ways to 
both the student and school. The 
results of the tests are a type of 
self-evaluation to the student and 
to the school, a showing of its 
accomplishments and failures in 
the type of knowledge retained by 
the students on the tests." 

Other ways in which the test is 
helpful to students taking it, Mr. 
Spencer explained is that it helps 
the students see the kinds of tests 
given in college and also is of 
assistance in job placement.

win the state contest, he will

Mr. Traster joins office staff 

A new addition to Elmhurst's administrative staff 
has been found in Mr. Robert Traster. Mr. Traster will 
assist the faculty during the absences of some of its 

Presently, Mr. Traster is assuming the position of 
Mrs. Dinah Cashman, the sophomore counselor, who 
has gone to England to spend the holidays with her 
husband, an exchange professor at one of the 
■ universities in London. Mr. Traster will also be 
assisting Mr. Bienz and Mr. Geyer. While Mr. Sinks is 
serving at the state legislature, Mr. Traster will take 
over his counseling responsibilities. 

Mr. Traster is a native of Garrett. He took courses 
at Manchester College, Ball State University, Indiana 
University, and St. Francis College. He majored in 
business and school administration. Before coming to 
Elmhurst, Mr. Traster served as the football coach at 
Hartford City High School and as athletic director at 
North Side for 11 years. 

When asked what he thought about Elmhurst, Mr. 
Traster replied, "I think the students are similar to 
most high school students. I've gotten along well with 
them. I have known some members of the faculty for 
many years. I feel that Elmhurst has a strong and very 
dedicated faculty. I hope to help whoever I can."

Trojans edge over SaintS; Knights 

by Jim McCleneghen 

The Elmhurst Trojans had to come 
from behind twice in order to beat 
Dwenger and NonveU over the weekend. 
The Trojans downed Dwenger in the last 
30 seconds, 64-61. and had to stage a last 
quarter rally to surpass the Knights 53- 

Elmhurst fought back from an eight 
point deficit at 55-47 with less than 5 
minutes to go to defeat Dwenger. The 
Trojan charge was led by senior Fred 
Underwood and junior Ernie Starks. 
Elmhurst was not able to put the game 
out of reach, however, due to 36 per cent 
shooting from the free throw line. It was 
not until junior Johnnie White stole the 
ball with less than 10 seconds to go and 
went in for a layup to give the Trojans a 3 
point lead that the victory was assured. 
The Trojans' ace in the hole turned out to 
be its substitutes as the Elmhurst 
backup's tallied 11 crucial points in the 
fourth period to keep the Trojans in the 

Elmhurst was led by senior Raymond 
Walker who contributed 21 points to the 
cause, most of them coming from 
rebounds and follow-up shots. Also in 
double figures for the Trojans were 
juniors Ernie Starks and Johnnie White 
who threw in 14 and 12 points 
respectively. The victory was the second 

for the Trojans in four games and their 
first in the SAC. 

Height advantage (finally) 

The following evening found the 
Trojans in action once again, this time 
entertaining the Norwell Knights here at 

The Trojans enjoyed a rare advantage 
against Norwell as far as recent Elmhurst 
teams go. With the exception of the 
Norwell centei) the Trojans walked out on 
the floor with a slight height advantage. 
This asset proved to be very valuable as 
time and again the Trojans received two 
and three shots instead of just one. 

The first 16 minutes of the game were 
played quite closely with the Knights 
finding the range a little sooner than the 
Trojans and taking a 17-12 lead at the end 
of the first quarter. Elmhurst came right 



j^From both sldes^ 

What would happen if Coach 
Eytcheson and Coach Doswell 
switched coaching positions 
for a regularly scheduled game 
against Northrop? That is the 
question we ask ourselves. The 
following are some possible 
excerpts if this situation would 

EXTCHESON: O.K.. we're 
going to play a 1-3-1 defense 
and a 1-2-2 offense. Well play a 
1-2-2 only if they start in a 2-3 
zone. If they play a man-to- 
man defense then we'll play a 
man-to-man offense. All right, 
go get 'em guys. Oops! Excuse 
me! Go get 'em girls. 

DOWLING: Wait a minute, 
coach, what was that number 
bit? It sounded Uke a bunch of 
lottery number^and I thought 
gambling isn't allowed in high 
school sports. Plus I flunked 
algebra last quarter, but I had 
Uncle Phil for a babysitter. 

EYTCHESON: I'll forget 
that last remark, Janet, since I 
have no comment on that 
situation. Those so-called 
numbers are not lottery 
numbers - they are our defense 
and offensive game plans. 

SLATE: Why do we have to 
have a game plan, coach? We 
can play run and gun too! 

NARRATOR: By the way, 
the girls beat Northrop that 
night 72-12. Now let's take a 
peek in on Coach Doswell and 
see how the varsity team is 

ANNOUNCER: HeUo again 

sports fans, it's 45-23 in favor 
of the Northrop Bruins here at 
halftime. The Bruins have 
tamed Coach Lucy Doswell's 
Trojans,and the game has the 
makings of a real farce. 

NARRATOR: Meanwhile, 
down in the boys locker room, 
Coach Doswell is giving one of 
her famous halftime speeches. 

DOSWELL: Men, there is 
an old saying - 'Horses sweat, 
men per3pire,and women glow' 
- you guys are definitely 

second that!" 

DOSWELL; What seems to 
be the problem is bur offense. 
In other words, when you guys 
throw the ball up there, it 
doesn't go through the hoop. 
Twenty-three points in sixteen 
minutes - that means that 
we've made less than one 
basket a minute. 

STARKS: So, what's our 
strategy for the second half? 

DOSWELL: Same as the 
first half, only this time - 

NARRATOR: Well, the 
result of this game - we'll leave 
up to you. It looks as though 
someone knew what he was 
doing when he decided who was 
going to coach who. But with 
the world being the way it is, 
the women's movement 
creating changes every day, 
who knows, maybe this article 
is not quite as fictional as it

back, however, outscoring the Knights 
15-12 in the second quarter as junior 
Johnnie White and senior Fred 
Underwood began to find the open land 
and move toward the basket for the 
layup. The Knights, however, displayed 
some fine outside shooting to hang on to a 
two point lead at the half, 29-27. 

The second half opened up and so did 
the Trojan defense which held the 
Norwell team without a field goal for 
almost the entire third quarter. Mean- 
while, juniors Ernie Starks and Johnnie 
White provided the offense for the Tro- 
jans, scoring all but one of the Trojans' 
field goals in the second half. Johnnie 
Whiteled all scoring with 20 points while 
Ernie Starks added 15 for the Trojans, 
who are now 3-2. 

The next action for the Trojans will be

The new year starts out with a 
bang for Elmhurst musicians as 
they prepare themselves for 
various contests throughout the 
next month. The annual 
MISBOVA contests, which 
involve members of the band, 
orchestra, choir, jazz bands, and 
Trojan Singers, will be coming up 
in -the next few weeks where solos 
and ensembles will be judged and 
commented on. Designed to im- 
prove musical talent and partici- 
pation, contestants are given use- 
ful criticism and experience which 
many find very rewarding. 

Participation up from last year 

The first contest will be Jan. 24 
when the two jazz bands and the 
Trojan Singers perform at Snider 
High School for the jazz band and 
swing choir NISBOVA 

competition. Last year all three 
ensembles received a first rating 
as these groups regularly rate 
well at the contest. 

The next week on Jan. 31, the 
piano, vocal, and string contest 
will take place at Bishop Luers 
High School where solos and 
small ensembles will be judged. 
This year Elmhurst will be 
sending approximately 15 solos 
and ensembles which vocal 
teacher Mr. Al Schmutz says is 
"up from last year. " 

Many players work 
hard for NISBOVA 

The next week they go at it 
again when on Feb. 7 Elmhurst 
wind and percussion players will 
display their work at Woodlan 
High School. Consisting of many 
of the same members as those in 
choir and orchestra, these wind 
and percussion players make up 
about 20 groups and individuals 
who are all working hard for 

For those who do exceptionally 
well in these district contests, 
they may go on to perform at the 
state contest in Indianapolis 
where musicians from all over 
Indiana will participate on Feb. 
28. Senior flutist Carole Stanley 
remarked, "In the end, it gives 
you a sense of accomplishment. "

This group of 17 educators 
from throughout Indiana are at 
Elmhurst representing the North 
Central Evaluating Association. 
They arrived at Elmhurst Jan. 13 
and will be in the building until 
Jan. 16. 

Elmhurst, as a member of this 
association, is evaluated every 
sfeven years. We go through a self- 
evaluation within the school, and 
the evaluating team spends four 
days at Elmhurst looking at our 

Earlier this fall, the initial self- 

evaluations began with the school 
staff being divided into sub- 
committees. They evaluated all 
phases of our school operation. 
Many students were also 
arranged in committees. The 
different sections of the 
evaluation criteria contain 
sections dealing with organiza- 
tion, nature of offerings, physical 
facilities, and direction of learn- 
ing. These evaluations are then 
reviewed at our state office and 
later at the Spring North Central 
Conference in Chicago. 

The next step of the North 
Central evaluating process is the 
visit by the representatives. The 
North Central team, while at 
Elmhurst, will observe exactly 
what goes on in school and the

J student teachers Miss Kim Schmidt and Mis: 

Elmhurst now has under its 
roof two student teachers who 
will be here until the end of 
February. Miss Joyce Kingsley, 
student teaching with Mr. Don 
Goss, is a senior at Ball State 
University in Muncie. Miss 
Kingsley, originally from 
Auburn, graduated from DeKalb 
High School and is now living in 
Fort Wayne. She is teaching 
advanced art, photography, and 
stage craft classes here at 
Elmhurst. She majored in art 
education and minored in 
multiculture education i n college. 
Miss Kingsley feels that she is 
learning a lot here and that the 
experience she is gaining is good. 
She can be found in room 230. 

The other student teacher here 
is Miss Kim Schmidt, student 
teaching with Mrs. Lucy Doswell. 
Miss Schmidt, also a senior at 

Ball State, graduated from North 
Side High School here in Fort 
Wayne. Her major is physical 
education and her minor is 
psychology. Right now at 
Elmhurst she is teaching modern 
dance, tumbling, and gymnastics. 

Miss Schmidt says that she has 
learned a lot and is gaining good 
experience. She finds the work 
challenging and likes Elmhurst 
"real well." She also commented 
that the classes are full of typical 
high school students. Miss 
Schmidt remarked, "Most of 
them (students) try even if they 
don't show it." 

Neither one of the ladies know 
where they will be working when 
they graduate. Miss Kingsley 
thinks she will be a substitute 
teacher for a while to gain even 
more experience. 

classrooms. They will also talk 
with teachers and students, 
review the self-study materials, 
and make recommendations for 

The chairman of the team 
visiting Elmhurst is Donald 
Slauter, superintendent of the 
Muncie Community Schools. 
Members of the committee 
include Donald Moretton and 
Robert Day, both Indiana high 
school principals; Elisabeth 
Good, an administrative 
assistant; Dr. Carolyn 

Whitenack, from Purdue 
University; and Don WooUs, also 
an administrative assistant. 

The North Central team also 
consists of Everett Holmgcen and 
Frances Dodd, both high school 
guidance counselors; David 
Thayer, a principal's assistant; 
Malcolm Julian, department 
supervisor; Lloyd Harrell, a 
superintendent of a school 
corporation; and Gilbert Dehne 
and Clifford Barbour, both 
chairmen of high school science 
departments. Also, there are 
chairmen of high school English 
departments, Douglas 
Cartwright and Ruth Bertsch; 
and high school teachers, Susan 
Brooks and Barbara Stauch.

Sarah is the first female this 
year to be named for the honor 
and only the second in the history

Several weeks ago, television 
viewers across the country turned 
on their sets late one Saturday 
night to be bombarded with some 
of the most bombastic 
commercials ever to hit the 
screen. One of these commercials 
advertised home training to 
become a U.S. Ambassador 
("You too, can learn how to say 
yea to the Secretary of State.") 
Another showed a group of 
patients on pacemakers in a spot 
that closely resembled that of a 
Sears Diehard battery 

commercial: the patients were 
left turned "on" and in the 
morning it was shown that the 
only ones left alive had been using 
the prescribed pacemakers. 
Tasteless? Well, yes, but more 
to the point, contrived. These ads 
were all part of a new program 
being aired on NBC-TV which, 
despite its late time slot (11:30 
p.m.) is cleaning up in the rating 
game. The reason for the show's 
popularity is the insanity of much 
of what happens on "Saturday 
Night Live" (not the one with 
Howard Cosell). The show boasts 

writers from the humour 
magazine National Lampoon, a 
changing host/hostess spot 
which has been held by such 
comedians as Richard Pryor and 
Lily Tomlin, singer Paul Simor^ 
and actress Candice Bergen, 
comedian Albert Brooks as a 
regular, and the fantastic 

Humor abounds 

Rarely does a show occur where 
humor is not the focal point. One 
exception to this happened on the 
show which Paul Simon hosted 
wherein comedy gave way to 
music. For the most part, though, 
from the opening announcements 
to the end of the program, the 
show produces hilarity and 

One of the weekly spots has 
Chevy Chase, a member of the 
"Not Ready for Prime Time 
Players" -- more show regulars - 
appearing as a bumbling 
President Ford, forgetting 
names, tripping over anything in 
sight, and starting television 
speeches before he is on camera. 

Chase is also featured in a news 
"update" spot which always 
begins with "Hello. I'm Chevy 
Chase ■- and you're not." During 
the assassination attempts on 
President Ford, Chase reported 
that the chief executive has 
accidentally poked himself in the 
eye with his thumb. "Alert 
security men," Chase assured us, 
"wrestled the thumb to the 
ground and disarmed it." 

Movies featured in satires 

Skits also abound on the series, 
including one hilarious take-off on 
"Jaws" which featured a land 
shark that knocked on the doors 

of its victims, and Saturday 
Night's version of "The 
Exorcist" which ended up with 
priest Richard Pryor strangling 
the "possessed" young girl 
because of a remark she made 
about his mother. 

All said, the show is thriving, 
and if the scriptwriters can keep 
up the insanity, it should 
continue to do so. So, if you're up 
late one weekend and Jerry Rubin 
appears on your screen to sell you 
60's nostalgia graffiti wall- 
paper, don't leave in disguist -- sit 
down in disgust and enjoy 
yourself. It's Saturday Night

"You learn very quickly what your capacity for 
beer is in Germany,'* stated senior Greg Nowak 
when asked about his trip there this past summer 
"You have to bo eighteen to buy it, but you car be 
any age to drink it." 

Greg spent last summer with the Hentchell 
family in Lubeck, West Germany. The family 
consisted of the father. Wilhelm, who is a teacher for 
the border-patrol pohce, the mother Elfi, and two 
boys, Jochen, age 11, and Jorg. who is 15. Greg 
spent most of his time with Jorg since there was less 
of an age difference. 

Typical German day much like that in United States 
Most people would be curious about how people 
spend a typical day in another country. Greg woke 
up on most days around nine o'clock. At breakfast 
(out in the back yard), he and Jorg would talk about 
morning activities which might include a tennis 
game or a walk in the city with their friends. At one 
o'clock, they returned home for lunch. After lunch 
there was usually something planned for them by 
the American and German group leaders. For 
example, Greg, Jorg, and their groups were guests 
at the city hall. They took a tour of the Luck 
Brewery, and they also took a boat ride on the 
canals in Lubeck. 

After the formal meetings of the group, they 
would go home and have coffee and cake with Jorg's 
parents. They would discuss what was done during 
the afternoon. (Greg mostly nodded his head and 
said "Ja".) Afterwards, they would call on friends 
to meet them in the city after dinner. 

^ Movies, dances, cafes provide recreation abroad 
.Once in the city, they would decide what to do, 

obrood for 

Summer of 
German life 

with movies and dancing being the main choices. 
Afterwards, everyone would go to a restaurant or f 
cafe to get something to drink. Greg and Jorg 
usually returned home around 11:30 and got to bed 
at midnight. 

One of the liighlights of the trip, according to 
Greg, was the informal tour. The American 
participants, together with their German brothers 
and sisters and the group leaders, traveled around 
the country in a thirty-seater bus. They visited such 
places as Munich, Central Germany, Rottenberg, 
and in general, took an all-around sight-seeing tour. 

Germans friendly on foot, demons behind the wheel 

Greg found the people of Germany to be very 
friendly except on the highways. The Germans treat 
their guests Uke "royalty". He also noted that it is 
safe to walk the streets there at night. 

One main American holiday took place while Greg 
was in Germany - the Fourth of July. The 
Americans in his group had dinner together and just 
spent the evening talking. 

In closing, Greg had a bit of advice for people 
considering the trip for next year. "Pack Ughtly, 
because a lot of traveling is done by train and bus 
and you have to carry your own luggage. There are 
no bellboys in train and bus stations!" 

The trip to Germany that Greg took was 
sponsored by the EXPERIMENT IN INTER- 
NATIONAL LIVING. The trips are financed by the 
participants, but scholarships are available. 
Students who are interested in the program may 
contact Mr. Rothe in room 256 for further

Trojans lose 
last 2 games 

.lUNiniiEHNIESTARKS fries for 

Wrestlers capture 5 wins 

The Elmhurst varsity 
wrestling team has captured 
five wins over Concordia, 
Wayne. South Side, New 
Haven, and in the Woodlan 
Invitational tournament to 
boost their record to 5-2. 

The two losses, being 
their only ones so far this 
season, came from Bellmont 
and Bishop Dwenger, 

On Dec. 4. South Side met 
with defeat as the Trojans 
up-ended the Archers 36-27. 
The victors for Elmhurst in 
this match were Steve 
Esterson and Stuart Norton 
by forfeit, Paul Freeman 10- 
7, and Nelson Almond 16-1. 
Senior Bill Monroe also beat 
the South opponent 6-2. and 
Mike Rush won his match 
with a 7-6 decision. 

The wrestlers' next match 
also proved to be victorious 
with four Elmhurst men 
pinning their Cadet 
opponents. These pins came 
from Jim and Nelson 
\Almond, Kenny Young; and 
Bill Munroe. Mike Rush and 
Mike Freygang also raatt«d 
their Concordia contenders 
with 5-3 and 13-2 scores 

On Dec. 11, Elmhurst 
defeated the Wayne 
Generals in the Trojan 
gymnasium. Winning with a 
fall for Elmhurst were Jim 
Almond, Nelson Almond,

and Mike Rush. Returning

Wayne man with a 6-3 

The Trojans' nest victory 
came over the New Haven 
Bulldogs 33-24. The only 
pins of the evening came 
from Paul Freeman and 
Mike Rush. However, Jim 
Almond, Nelson Almond, 
and Mike Freygang all out- 
wrestled their men to 4-2 
decisions while Kenny 
Young won 5-0 and Bill 
Munroe 4-1. 

Elmhurst also won the 
Woodlan Invitational 
Wrestling Tournament. 
Capturing first place for the 
Trojans were Nelson 
Almond, Mike Freygang, 
and Mike Rush. There were 
also five Trojans placing 
second in this meet: Tom 
Smith, Jim Almond. Paul 
Freeman. Ken Young, and 
Bill Munroe.

Elmhurst had it and then lost it 
ab the South Side Archers 
deprived the Trojans of a 
basketball victory Friday night 
at the Archers' gym. Playing 
even with the Archers for part of 
the game, Elmhurst could not 
apply it long enough to hold off a 
late surge and succumbed to 
South Side 71-66. 

In the first quarter. South Side 
began to slip away from 
Elmhurst to establish an 11-point 
lead, but then the Trojans came 
alive and behind the 24-point 
performance of junior Ernie 
Starks, pulled up with the 
Archers to trail 36-32 at the half. 

Third quarter strong 

Elmhurst continued consistent 
play into the third quarter to lead 
49-44, but couldn't battle to the 
end to gain another SAC victory. 
Raymond Walker contributed 12 
points, and Mike Brewer added 10 
more for the game. 

Twenty-five turnovers and 
scoring lapses in the first and 
fourth quarters hampered 
Elmhurst on the court. Before the 
contest Coach Kenny Eytcheson 

Twenty-five turnovers and 

scoring lapses in the first and 
fourth quarters hampered 
Elmhurst on the court. Before the 
contest Coach Kenny Eytcheson 
pointed out, "Consistency in our 
game and periods of mental 
lapses are areas where we need 
improvement." Defense so far 
this year had been a strong point, 
allowing 57.6 points a game. 

Reserves fare poorly 

In the reserve game, Elmhurst 
didn't stay as close, becoming 
South's seventh victim in a row 
48-35. Ron WhJtson led the 
Trojan reserves with 12 points. 

Elmhurst won two games 
before the Christmas break but 
lost a tight overtime game in a 
rematch with Northrop in the 
holiday tournament. 

Friday, Dec. 20, Ehnhurst 
easily handled Northrop pulling 
away to victory in front of a 
Trojan home crowd. The next 
night, Elmhurst fought down to 
the wire with a visiting 
Mississinewa team, but prevailed 
once again at home. 

Monday, Dec. 30, however, 
Elmhurst was defeated in a tense 
overtime rematch against 
Northrop 70-61 after rallying late 
in the game to tie it up. 

Girls lose opening games 

For the Elmhurst girls' 
basketball team, so far the 
season has been dismal. 
Pounding defeats by Snider, 
South Side, and Concordia 
overshadow the 1 point loss 
to Bishop Dwenger with a 
final score of 36-35. 

Coaches Lucy Doswell 
and Kim Schmidt do, 
however, seem to forecast 
some victories as the season 

"Sure the scores look bad, 
but I really think that with 
each game we get better and 
better." a team member 
explained. ' 'Most of the 
teams we've lined up against 

this year have had a height 
advantage over us. We just 
have to work harder and 
jump higher." 

The team sees a lot of 
action from basically seven 
players -- seniors Ethel 
Fowlkes, Carol Quance, 
June Gordy. and Marilynn 
Scherer, and juniors 
Carmetta Walker, Kellie 
Slat^and Kelly Auer. 

Slate has been the 
consistent leading scorer 
with an approximately 10 
point average. Rebounding 
honors have been shared by 
Quance, Auer, and Walker.

"The gain is mostly what is 
learned on the job," stated Mr. 
Joe Miller when discussing the 
Community Involvement 
Program. "Very few of the jobs 
are paying jobs." 

The Community Involvement 
Program is a pilot program which 
is in its second semester in the 
Fort Wayne Community Schools. 
Right now, students from 
Elmhurst, South Side, and 
W'ayne are involved in the single 
semester pass-fail course. 

There are two segments to the 
program — the Pre-professional 
Intern Career Experience and the 
Community Service Experience. 
The Pre-professional Intern 
segment is specifically for college- 
bound seniors to provide them 
with some work experience in at 
least one career area that they are 
thinking about preparing for at 
the college level. To qualify, a 
student must be a senior in good 
standing with the school, have 
parent and school approval, be 
approved by the prospective 
employer, and be able to prove 
his/her intent to attend a 

The Community Service 
Experience segment's purpose is 
to enable students to understand 
the value of community service as 
well as help them relate classroom 
learnings to community action. 
The people involved this semester 
will be working with the 
Voluntary Action Center in the 
Foellinger Building. 

Students participating in the 
program are at all times 
considered part of their regular 
schools and are subject to their 
school's rules and regulations. , 
They also must provide their own 

When asked if there would be a 
class regularly meeting, Mr. 
Miller said, "Ideally speaking, I'd 
want the students to meet. And 
next semester if schedules can be 
fixed, they will meet periodically 
in informal discussion groups. ' ' 

Participating this semester 
from Elmhurst are seniors 
Claudia Johnson, Nancy Beadie, 
and Sarah Stewart. Other 
possible participants include 
seniors Lea Novitsky, Kevin Lee, 
Andrea Janser, Marti Gross, 
Julie Morken, Lindy Loomis, and 
Barb Harman. 

Annually, the senior class 
losses some of its population. 
This year is no exception as 66 
January grads of the total 366 
upperclass men and women will 
be leaving their post as students 
of Elmhurst. 

A few of the 66 will be starting 
college, but the reasons of the 
majority of those leaving EHS 

are jobs, the military service, 
marriage, or j ust because they are 
sick of school. 

Mr. Douglass Spencer, senior 
guidance counselor, suggested 
that all other seniors should have 
taken care of arrangements for 
their cap and gown, completed 
their graduation check Ust, and a

Nationalities to be 
represented in speeches 

The program will get under 
way with the concert band 
performing "Liberty Bell" and 
"The Stars and Stripes Forever," 
a medley of American folk songs. 
Members of the group will dress 
in costumes depicting periods of 
U.S. history. 

From the speech department, 
junior Tod Huntley will present a 
brief speech. "Two Hundred 

Years Ago Today." Following 
this, five foreign language 
students are to speak several 
minutes about immigrants in the 
American heritage. Those 
participating and the nationaUty 
they will represent are Yvette 
Morrill, Spanish; Nancy Beadie, 
Polish; Sarah Stewart. Irish; 
Steve Duray. German; and Jan 
Dowling, French. 

Comedy ekit to 
highlight program 

On a lighter side, the program 
will also include a historical skit, 
"Dan Rather Meets Ben 
Franklin," characterized by 
senior Larry Daugherty and 
junior Dave Stein. 

Concluding the Bicentennial 
presentation, the concert band 
and chorus will join for "America

Workshop develops unity 

"I've heard him speak before - 
he is fantastic. I Ustened to him 
for several hours - 1 was not bored 
for a minute," explained Principal 
Richard Horstmeyer. 

Mr. Horstmeyer was 

describing Dr. Zacharie

The staff from Elmhurst and its 
feeder schools, which include

Workshops help teachers

The various teachers will 

gather in the auditorium and 
conference rooms at Wayne to 
learn from Dr. Clements and Dr. 
WilUam Marchant who will be 
assisting Dr. Clements. 

When asked for his thoughts on 
the workshop, Mr. Horstmeyer 
responded, "Any Human 
Relations workshop is simply set 
up to help teachers look at 
themselves and the people they 
work with in order to develop an 
understanding towards various 

Workshops will be conducted 
on different dates and wiU involve

ground work on the workshop 

Cooperation - the only answer 

On the evening of the fifth, 
parents and students are invited 
to Elmhurst at 7:30 p.m. for a 
conference with Dr. Clements. 

"When every person can accept 
one another for what we are - then 
we won't need a human relations 
day - but this may never happen," 
said Horstmeyer. 

Cooperation on the part of the 
students, parents, and staff at 
Elmhurst may be the only

"It all started with some of the 
traveling players who were not 
getting the recognition at their 
schools that a basketball player 
would get. And of course, there is 
a lot of competitiveness between 
the schools. Gunnar Elliot and I 
decided there was a need for high 
school hockey, so representatives 
from the schools were contacted." 

Mr. Stew Block explained how 
Fort Wayne area high school 
hockey began last year. Mr. Block 
is part of the Park Board and has 
a traveUng team of Midget 
players (sophomores and juniors 
in high school). He became aware 
of the interest of students playing 
on Park Board and traveling 
teams in playing in a high school 
league and so, with Gunnar Elliot 
ice arena, worked on the idea of 
interscholastic competition in a 
club-type organization. 

Team representatives do work 

The teams' affiliation with 
their schools is limited to the use 
of the schools' names and the 
recruitment of players for each 
team from the student bodies of 
the respective schools, The 
organizational work is done 
through representatives of the 
high schools, most of whom are 
players, such as Elmhurst's 
seniors Andy Norton, Mark 
Hershberger, Greg Ryder, and 
junior Bob Kratzert. Some 
schools have found it tough to get 
enough players out for the weekly 
games, however^ Elmhurst has 
not had much of a problem. Greg 
Ryder says that he and other 
organizers knew who played 
hockey and who would be 
interested in playing a high 
school league, so they were able 
to recruit about 18 players.

HERSHBERGER skates for the puck during an Elm- 
hurst-Homestead game which Elmhurst won, 6-4. 
Right: Players face-off in a Park Board game last 
Tuesday. Several Elmhurst players are members of 
Park Board teams as well. 

The league has two divisions^ 
and each team plays a fifteen 
game schedule. There will be a 
round robin play-off in March. 
They play by the same rules and 
regulations as the traveling 
teams and Park Board teams 
under the direction of the 
Amateur Hockey Association. 
, The coaches come from the 
Park Board, but the teams do not 
have practices because of the 
difficulty in getting ice and the 
cost involved, and the problem of 
getting the players at one place at 
one time. The players themselves 
must pay for the ice time for the 
games which amounts to $32 a 
team per game. However, the 
Columbia City team has been able 
to find sponsors from businesses 

and individuals to defray its 
costs. Mr. Block hopes the 
players in the rest of the league 
will also be able to get sponsors. 
He thinks that the cost may be a 
deterrent to some interested 

Need for fans 

Mr. Block says there are still 
some organizational problems, 
but he is pleased with the way the 
league is working overall. As 
Elmhurst player Andy Norton 
states, "What we really need is 
spectators. We have everything 
else going for us." Mr. Block 
believes that the games could 
draw large audiences. He notes 
that high school teams in 
Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, and 

Minnesota are having much 
success. He can see the 
possibilities in the good turnouts 
his Midget team has had. 

Mr. Block hopes that when the 
teams prove they can draw fans, 
they will eventually be sanctioned 
by the schools. He admits it will 
take time and a more common 
knowledge about hockey as a 
sport, but he sees the league now 
as a good outlet for students 
interested in hockey. He says, 
"Most of the players have had 
some experience playing hockey, 
but that's not the important 
thing. If a team has one good Une 
and some supporting players who 
really want to play, it can make 

Homeroom teacher merits praise 

To the editor; 

Many students and teachers feel that 
homeroom is the most wasted period of 
the week. Students have nothing to 
occupy their time,, and teachers are 
unprepared for questions that students 
ask about credits, programming, etc. On 
the contrary, we feel that our homeroom 
teacher, Mr. Glenn Miller, really cares 
about us and dislikes wasting time as 
much as we do. 

Mr. Miller has realized that homeroom 
teachers are expected to take place of 
guidance counselors to reduce scheduling 
confusion and has done everything 
possible to become well informed about 
the courses offered at Elmhurst. He takes 
the time to talk to other teachers and 
counselors to find answers to the 
students' questions. He keeps personal 
records of each students' classes and 
constantly checks them to make sure that 
everyone has enough credits in the right 
areas to graduate. 

One' student was very upset over a low 
grade that she felt she didn't deserve. 
When she went to. the office to talk with a 

counselor, she learned that Mr. Miller had 
abeady discussed the low grade with him. 
He had pointed out that all her other 
grades were A's and B's, giving the 
counselor even more reason to reconsider 
her grade. 

This is just one example of the time and 
effort that Gleim Miller spends on behalf 
of his students. As sophomores and 
juniors, we never really appreciated his 
actions, considering most of it just trivial 
paper work. But now, as graduation nears 
(especially for all of our January grads), 
we realize what a great job Mr. Miller has 
done for us in the past and how hard he's 
working right now to make sure we'll all 
be holding diplomas come June 2. 
Thanks, Mr. Miller. It's a good feeling to 
know somebody cares!
