HOWE High School 1 962 

blocks and blocks of corridors, a myriad of offices, 
classrooms, shops, and labs, home to thousands of 
textbooks, home-away-from-home to nearly eight- 
een hundred students. Howe has stood on Violet 
Hill for a period of twenty-four years. Our beautiful 
campus is the meeting place for memories of the 
past and new trends and fads of the modern scene. 
Howe High is a school having a heartbeat as real 
as the tick of the Tower clock. Howe is laughter, 
the jokes between classes, and the race against the 
ever-menacing tardy bell. Howe is excitement, as 
the ball goes over the goal line in the closing sec- 

onds of a terrific game. Howe is struggling with the. 
books, burning the midnight oil to take home a 
good report card. Howe is pride and the enthusi- 
asm displayed by a loyal student body. Howe is the 
past, which has laid a firm foundation for an en- 
joyable present we'll never forget. Howe is the fu- 
ture and the work entailed to insure its brightness. 

These are the many faces of Thomas Carr Howe 
High School: its laughter, its excitement, its strug- 
gles, its pride, and its hopes. We the people make 
up these emotions,- we are the heartbeat of Howe. 
Howe is a part of us, and yet, we make up Howe.

Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold of the United Nations 
was injured fatally last summer in a plane crash. His death 
was a severe blow to the world. 


Indiana's own boy, Virgil Grissom from Mitchell, is one of 
the seven United States astronauts. He made his suborbital 
flight on the twenty-first of July. 


Howeites learn about the world, enjoy 

: -.,^r 

Busy Howeites, always on the go, made time to 
keep up with the abundance of news in today's 
world. An eventful year, 1961-1962 brought many 
news stories which changed our times. 

On February 20, America triumphed once again 
in the space race when Marine Lt. Colonel John 
Glenn, Jr., successfully completed a triple orbit of 
the earth. 

The crisis over the "Berlin wall" caused reserve 
troops to be called to active duty. Latin America 
continued to be a problem. 

Americans, with the rest of the free world, joined 
in mourning the death of United Nations Secretary- 
General Dag Hammarskjold of Sweden. 

Signs of progress around Indianapolis were new 
schools to accommodate expanding city limits. 

Because our future lives depend on the decisions 
and plans of today's adults, we want to be well- 
informed as to their ideals and visions so that we 
can carry on as leaders of tomorrow's society. 

Rising twenty-seven stories into the sky, the new City-County 
Building in downtown Indianapolis can be seen from our 
campus. The city's tallest building was finished this year. 

Wild sweaters were the order during winter months. Crew- 
necks, ski and vest sweaters, shawl neck and v-neck are chosen 

by "smart" Howe guys: Lanny Simpson, Dan Breckenridge, 
Charles Ewing, William Aust, and James Spear. 

new modern fads 

Everything went big in the year 1962, especially 
purses. Carrying all things, sometimes even the in- 
evitable kitchen sink, purses resembled tackle 
boxes, saddle bags, and picnic baskets. 

Sweaters appeared in a variety of styles, espec- 
ially those tailored for Howe's men. Thick bold- 
striped cardigans, plain pull-overs, and plaid "pon- 
cho" sweaters were extremely popular. 

Clothes and hair-dos were certainly sharp in '62. 

Sporting hair-dos of varying lengths and shapes, gals wore 
pixie cuts, bouffants and the page boy. Brenda Beshear Ann 
Abernethy and Eileen Whitworth model their coiffures. 

Susan Downey searches desperately for a pencil in her trunk- 
sized purse as Cheryl Snyder and Cheryl Bauer dig into 
theirs. "Satchels" ranged from large to larger to huge. 

Rollers in hair, 'phone in hand, and homework set aside, Doris 
Roesener demonstrates one of the typical positions of modern 
teenage relaxation. Many students prefer more conventional 

plans for study, utilizing a desk and chair, while still more 
Howeites do their lessons at the public library. Finishing our 
homework we use many facilities in order to make the grade. 

Studies, extra-curricular and outside 

Wearing steady shirts and hand holding are part of the spring 
scene typified by seniors, Peggy McCormick and Byron Buck 
as they leave school and head toward home and homework. 


After-the-game dances always draw large crowds of happy 
Howeites. Spinning the records are usually various Indianapolis 
disc jockeys. Dances are sponsored by the Hi-Y and ROTC. 

Howeites joined scores of the young and the young at heart to 
test and improve their skating ability when Indianapolis' new- 
est recreational facility, the Ellenberger skating rink, was open- 

ed in November of 1961. Because of the success of the ex- 
perimental rink, the Park Department now plans to construct 
several more of the popular skating rinks throughout the city. 

activities broaden the lives of Howeites 

When Howeites aren't in classes or doing home- 
work, a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, 
from clubs to sports, is available for them. 

Friday night openhouses sponsored by the Downey 
Avenue Christian Church, become an "essential" part 
of the life of Howeites. 

The winter season became more delightful this 
year as Ellenberger Park opened its new outdoor 
ice skating rink. For some, skating was a new thing, 
but after practice and many falls, they learned the 
"hang" of the slippery sport. 

Jobs take up much of some students' time. Junior 
librarians learn how to keep their places of business 
quiet and orderly, while soda jerks specialize in 
chocolate sundaes and friendly conversation. When 
the steady hasn't called, many girls will earn "mad 
money" by baby-sitting for the family next door. 

With the responsibility of a job often comes the 
pleasure of owning a car. The school's parking lot 
testifies to the imagination of many guys with their 
"bomb," while some boys and most of the girls have 
borrowed Dad's more conservative "wheels." 


Meeting at Laughner's inside, enthusiastic seniors bring with 
them lots of noise and whoopla and their ridiculous costumes 
from their annual basketball battle with the Faculty Fatmen. 



High School 1962 





With Classes 

• • 

where students gain useful knowledge for later life. 
This school year, classes met for eleven months, be- 
cause summer school was offered at Howe for the 
first time. To fulfill the reason for our being here, this 
is Thomas Carr Howe High School in classes. 

Mike Dugan, Bill Gilkison, Steve Koepper, Ann Cole and 
Linda Huff were this year's representatives to Hoosier Boys' 
and Girls' State. During their two weeks stay at Indiana Uni- 

versity, the students not only learned valuable 'information 
concerning governmental procedures, but were given the op- 
portunity to run for a state office. 

Exceptional students gain recognition 

Mr. Tobin offers congratulations to Susan Straith-Miller, na- 
tional winner of the NCTE Award which is presented to students 
who have attained outstanding achievement in English. 

Vying for top honors in the class of '62, seniors Steve Koepper, 
Andrea Tempelmyer, and Allen Hatcher have found that hard 
work has been profitable in their years at Howe. 


Five Howe seniors, Terry Cooper, Allen Hatcher, Bill Hoff, Jim 
McClure and Larry Sachs, have qualified as semifmalists for 
Merit Scholarships. They are among 10,000 national top- 

scoring students on the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying 
Test. Their names were went to accredited colleges and univer- 
sities for recommendation for financial assistance in college. 

and honors in many fields of endeavor 

Special talents and outstanding scholarship and 
leadership have their reward in personal satisfaction 
on the part of the individual. As an added incen- 
tive, however, special recognitions are accorded stu- 
dents with outstanding abilities. 

One of these honors is a National Merit Scholar- 
ship. Five senior boys were semi-finalists this year: 
Jim McClure, Terry Cooper, Bill Hoff, Larry Sachs, 
and Allen Hatcher. 

At the 1961 Honors Day program, Jeannie Kight- 
linger and Bill Gilkison were chosen American Le- 
gion Good Citizens. Alice Abbott received the Al- 
trusa Club award for leadership, scholarship, citi- 
zenship, and service. Similar qualities enabled 
Lynda Barnes to be selected DAR good citizen. 
Sponsored by the American Legion, Mike Dugan 
and Steve Koepper attended Hoosier Boys' State at 
I.U. last summer. 

Those who are willing to work hard have a suc- 
cessful student life and become leaders in society. 

Bill Gilkison and Jeannie Kightlinger, American Legion Good 
Citizens; Alice Abbot, Altrusa Award winner; and Lynda 
Barnes, DAR Good Citizen, were honored by civic clubs. 


Lab experiments, 

Sophomores show off their talents as real "cut-ups." Talents 
in dissecting and other fall biology subjects are revealed for 
visitors during Howe's open house. 

TOP — With the current threat of radioactive fallout in mind, 
Mike Weaver and Pat Overmyer, in physics lab, measure the 
presence of radiation in a compound by using a Geiger 
counter. LEFT — In the physics lab, Bill Gilkison sets up a 
block and tackle to demonstrate a simple machine. Experiments 
help the student understand scientific principles. 


research increase interest in science 

Facing the challenge and race for outer space, 
the United States government has stressed the 
immediate need for highly educated technologists 
and scientists, who will lead the American people 
into the unknown. Realization that the use and appli- 
cation of science principles has become increasingly 
important, has enlarged the science requirement for 
graduation to two years of a laboratory science. 

Both freshman and senior physical science pro- 
vide a general background for Howe students. How- 
ever, in order to fulfill the science requirement, one 
may choose from such specialized courses as biology, 
chemistry, and physics. Extra projects in such courses 
often result in scholarships and awards for students 
at regional and state contests. Class and laboratory 
work combine to teach the students both the practi- 
cal and experimental aspects of science. 

Tanya Fisher rushes through the frantic last minute details 
of getting her insect collection ready to hand in. Like many 
sophomores, Tanya was relieved when the ordeal was over. 

After setting up this experiment and observing its results, 
Ruth Ann Tedrowe completes her lab report concerning the 
process of the distillation of water. This experiment consists 

of evaporation followed by condensation of the vapors in a 
separate vessel. For the first time, the chemistry classes are 
dealing with experimental and laboratory work.

Future business men and women practice 

Working on a filing problem, Sharon Davis, Kay McGilliard, 
Judy Ling, and Lorraine Day complete a job answer sheet 
which was to be filled out and handed in at the end of the 
fourth period. 

Sandy Bourne, Karen Haschild, Judy DeLashmit, and Connie 
Henry, strive for a high grade in Shorthand, as they take 
dictation for five minutes at a rate of 110 words per minute. 

Striving for both speed and accuracy at the exploration and 
control levels, these students type a conditioning practice ex- 
ercise at the beginning of their Typing I class every day. As 

they advance, the students' week is made up of timed writ- 
ings, tabulating problems, manuscript work, and letter forms. 
This experience is valuable in the business field and college. 


skills for tomorrow 

The Business Education Department at Howe of- 
fers prospective secretaries, bookkeepers, and other 
business majors a large array of courses to take. 
Many Howeites find typing to be a valuable course 
to take because it helps speed up homework. Nu- 
merous girls find that shorthand comes in handy 
when it comes to taking notes in class. 

Members of the Business Education Department 
and other interested Howe students have an oppor- 
tunity to enter the NOMA Spelling Contest. A list 
of one hundred words must be spelled correctly. If 
they succeed in spelling all of them correctly, they 
receive a certificate. 

The Business Managers play an important role in 
the business and financial life at Howe. Under the 
sponsorship of Mr. John Trinkle the business man- 
agers take care of advertising for extra curricular 
activities such as plays and athletic events. Taking 
care of the financial records for all events they 
manage is another job of the Business Managers. 
Seniors receive a medal for service.

TURED — Leane, McGuire, Monger. 

While computing the answer to an assigned problem, this 
machine calculation class learns the details in adding, sub- 
tracting, multiplying, and dividing by the use of a comptome- 

ter. For those students not planning to enter college upon 
graduation, experience in operating these machines proves to 
be valuable in preparing them for future office work. 

Eleven math courses offered to pupils 

In his geometry class Mr. Rehm shows three students, Bill Goines, 
Christine Whitmore, and Peggy Barnes, the details in erecting 
a perpendicular from a given point on the line AB. 

The mathematics department at Howe is one of 
the finest in any of the state's high schools. Having 
the advantage of many excellent teachers, a stu- 
dent is able to obtain the math needed for daily 
living or for the challenges of college. 

A freshman enrolls in either algebra or general 
math. After a year of fundamentals and factoring, 
the algebra student takes up the angles, polygons, 
and circles of geometry. Following days of work 
and error, the proof of the Pythagorean Theo- 
rem is completed. The college-bound student is of- 
fered eleven semesters of study to prepare him for 
higher-level work. Trigonometry, college algebra, 
and calculus, top the list. What calculus student does 
not remember the proofs that are "evident to any- 
one who can read." This effort now pays great divi- 
dends later. 

Some of the eager students who gain pleasure 
from working mathematical problems compete in the 
regional and state contests. Howe is always strongly 
represented in this competition, and the Howeites 
capture their share of the awards. 

BACK - Cook, Frushour, Henderson. SECOND ROW - Gorski, 
Pettee, Lobdell. FRONT — Garman, Scanland, Whitmore. 

Mrs. Wilcox instructs Jim McClure in finding the length of a 
curve by the use of fundamental calculus derivatives. It is pos- 
sible to receive a college credit from this advanced course. 



Although push-ups are often seen as a form of initiation or 
punishment, they are used for a beneficial purpose in physical 
education classes. Jim Dirks demonstrates the proper position. 

Phys. Ed. required 

Marcia Rennard, Jeanne Embry, and Judy Hawkins, demon- 
strate a lead-up exercise to modern dancing in their physical 
education class. One year of this course is a requirement. 

Mike Williams holds the rope while Mark Vandenbark tries to 
reach the top in the climbing test. In physical education 
classes, boys are given many tests of speed and accuracy. 


BACK ROW — Abbott, Dietz, Brown, Mosiman, Dawson, 
Nauta, Sanders, Spargur. FRONT ROW — Banta, Sample, 
Anderson, Allen, Lewis, Canada, Whabrey. The Red Cross club 
engages in various service projects. 

Vicki Shook demonstrates the correct serving procedure, as 
Charlene Beck and Helen Price enjoy a delicious dessert 
which was prepared as a project in food preparation class. 

c courses offer practical skill 

Home economics offers elective courses which 
teach that the way to a man's heart is through his 
stomach. From the kitchen come tempting aromas 
which fill the lower floor. Foods students learn to 
make desserts and salads and then advance to com- 
plete meals. They serve a full-course meal to mem- 
bers of the faculty, and at Christmastime the girls 
give a party for their little brothers and sisters. 

Future seamstresses are well-prepared at Howe, 
too. The girls often make their own clothes. 

Also included in the department are home man- 
agement and home nursing courses. Basic principles 
of first aid are taught in the nursing classes. 

The Junior Red Cross Club works closely with the 
home ec. department as the members pack boxes to 
be sent to needy people overseas. A pin is awarded 
to girls who have given twenty-five hours of service. 

Busy homemakers of tomorrow receive practical 
experience in the home economics department. 

As they begin a project in their double period clothing class, 
Joan Wild and Carole Tuschhoff measure the width of a 
piece of material as Jane Wild and Vicki Vest pin the pattern. 


Many desirable and useful items for the home are made by 
the boys in wood shop classes. Rick Newman squares a 
board as he adds the finishing touches to his second project. 

Mike Morris drills stock as he prepares to make a hand tool 
in metal shop. This course is one of many electives which of- 
fer knowledge and skill to be carried over into the future. 

and knowledge for careers and future 

While the aroma of delectable food arises from 
the home economics classes in the lower corridor, 
a much different odor, that of sawdust and oil, 
comes from the industrial arts classes in the south- 
east wing of the building. 

A course in one of the industrial arts gives boys 
the opportunity to practice skills that may one day 
become a part of their lives. The boys learn the 
fundamentals of such trades as printing, carpentry, 
metal work, and draftsmanship. They may elect ma- 
chine, architectural, or airplane drawing after they 
have completed a basic course in mechanical draw- 
ing. Hand tools, bookcases, and hi-fi cabinets are 
just a few of the many articles produced by the boys 
in wood and metal shop. 

Almost all of Howe's printing needs, ir^'uding 
tickets, programs, and forms for classes and special 
events, are provided by the boys in print shop. 

Printers Ralph Kent and Tom Warren lock a form of type 
ready for the press. Print shop classes have produced every- 
thing from bookmarks to dance tickets to official forms. 


Art enables gifted students to express their creativity in such 
assignments as was given by Mrs. DeWaard. Here, the students 
are working on original tree and landscape designs. These 

Howeites and others in the various art courses are often called 
upon to provide posters and large banners for the purpose of 
advertising coming Howe events. 

Fine arts classes provide creativity, 

Art offers talented students the opportunity to ex- 
press their ideas or feelings on paper, canvas, or in 
raw materials. The many courses which constitute the 
art department provide much more than a chance to 
pick up an extra credit. They offer students valuable 
knowledge and skill which may be put to use in future 
work or in the home. 

After an introductory course of craft arts, Howeites 
may elect a course dealing with a specific branch of 
art study. Those who like to create objects from raw 
material with their hands may choose such classes as 
jewelry, plastics, or sculpturing. 

Further chances for creativity come with work in 
crayon, paints, or ink on paper or canvas. Letter- 
ing classes plan and execute posters, banners, certif- 
icates, etc. Much of their work is evident in the halls 
of Howe. Commercial art often serves as prepara- 
tion for a career in the field of advertising. 

Display cases by the main entrance exhibit sam- 
ples of student work in oil and other media,- on the 
lower floor, a showcase displays the work of jewelry 
and sculpture classes. Talents of the students in the 
art department are evident in the number of Scho- 
lastic Art Awards which they win. 

Julie Michael uses a magazine in order to get an idea of an 
up-to-date style for her drawing. The fashions class, a more 
specific art course, is chosen by students talented in this field. 


Attractive and ornamental pieces of finery are made by 
hand from raw materials in jewelry class. Lois Lynch prepares 
to polish her project as one of the final steps in completing it. 

To the average Howeite, this painting may contain little 
meaning; but Olaf Moetus considers his work as a master- 
piece of abstract art as he completes it in advanced art. 

expression for many talented Howeites 

Pat Weber completes his scratch board, a technique used 
extensively in advertising, in commercial arts class. A design is 
scratched upon paper which is covered with India ink. 

Paula Stanifer chose a figurine as her ceramics project in 
Craft Arts. After she has finished molding the clay, shellac 
will be applied, and as a final step, it will be baked. 


Surrounded by posters and campaign buttons of opposing views, 
Sally Stafford refuses to listen as Susie Oswalt and Bill Aronis 
attempt to persuade her to vote for their party. 

Clerk Marcia Townsend calls the roll of the representative cities 
at the Nationalist State Convention, as tabulator Ruth McClure 
records the information for attendance purposes. 

Elections, stocks, and current events 

Victorious candidates, Mike Dugan, Lynda Barnes, and Bill Gil- 
kison, congratulate each other on capturing the offices of 
Governor, Sec. of State, and Lt. Governor, respectively. 

"And if I'm elected, I promise to have a new 
football stadium built here on the Howe campus," 
shouts a hopeful candidate in the annual Howe 
Mock Elections. The Social Studies Department spon- 
sors the thrilling event for those enrolled in govern- 
ment and economics classes. The purpose is to in- 
crease Howe students' knowledge of election funda- 
mentals. The four week unit covers local, county, 
and state procedures. 

After a state chairman has been selected for 
each party, the Nationalists and Federalists begin 
holding caucuses and making colorful posters. A 
number of people seeking to get the party nomina- 
tion apply for an office. At an exciting convention, 
the candidates are carefully selected; then begins 
the wild campaigning. Rallies are held in the halls 
before school with rousing speeches and blaring 
bands. Loyal party members wear unique badges 
as the one week campaign period nears its com- 
pletion. When the returns are counted, the newly 
elected office holders know that the weeks of worry 
and skipping homework were not in vain. They had 
certainly profited from their political experiences. 


The affirmative team of Anne Headlee and Jim Sinclair de- 
fend Federal Aid to Education on "Junior Town Meeting," 
while Easy Gwinn records and Clark Johnson moderates. 

During Economics class, Steve Hooker computes gains and 
losses for his stock report, as Pat Huetten checks a posted 
Wall Street Journal for the closing prices on her stocks. 

add interest to Social Studies units 

"What was the purpose of the pyramids built by 
the ancient Egyptians?" "What is the present high 
stock on the market?" These questions and even 
more varied ones were asked every day in different 
classes of Howe's social studies department. While 
government classes studied how a bill is passed in 
Congress, economics classes invested imaginary 
money in stocks and bonds on Wall Street, and U.S. 
history students relived the Civil War on its centen- 
nial anniversary. Students of psychology, sociolo- 
gy, commercial geography, Latin American history, 
international relations, and world history made up 
the remainder of the history department. 

Howe history classes participate each year in the 
"Junior Town Meeting," a radio broadcast by stu- 
dents of Indianapolis high schools. This year, U.S. 
history students of Mr. Phillip Brown discussed the 
pros and cons of government aid to private and 
parochial schools broadcast was over WIBC radio. 

During a study of the War of the Rebellion, Mr. Vencel points 
out an important battle area to two of his students, Virginia 
Richardson and Robert Rhoades in their U.S. History I class.

A group of dignified and disciplined young men 
are enrolled in Howe's military program for the pur- 
pose of preparing themselves for their term in the 
armed forces after graduation. 

In order to earn money for their annual Military 
Ball, the cadet corps have worked at after-game 
dances and have sponsored a few of these dances 
themselves. They have also helped with the decora- 
tions at various school-sponsored dances. 

The six R.O.T.C. sponsors are chosen on the basis 
of scholastic standings and on a theme which they are 
required to write. The girls are then screened by a 
faculty committee, voted on by the student body, and 
chosen by the cadets. 

The Boys' Rifle Team, an honor group having won 
nearly every award offered in this area for the last 
three years, is under the direction of 1st Lt. Steve 
Edwards. The Girls' Rifle Team, sponsored by Miss 
Dorotha Kirk, is one of the few of its kind in the 
county. Weekly meeting of both teams are aimed at 
improving individual scores and preparing members 
for competition with other schools. 

The top brass of Howe's R.O.T.C. staff watch as four members 
of the battle group, in their shining helmets and white gloves, 
parade the colors at the annual Federal Inspection in May.

Although Howeites often spend time decorating theme tablets 
and writing notes in study hall, this period often means that 
one book less will have to be carried home in the evenings. 

Diane Robinson, sophomore, and Nancy Watson, freshman, 
receive advice from Miss Maryon Welch about planning their 
schedules to include both required and elective courses. 

Counseling proves helpful to students 

Study plays a large role in the life of a Howeite. 
Late hours spent on books often cause red eyes the 
next morning. Much homework and cramming for 
tests is done in study hall. Each student is required 
to have a study hall as a part of his program, and 
the time he spends in study hall is well-spent, al- 
though not always in study. We will never forget 
the joker who puts paper in the electric fan, or the 
inevitable character whose snores are interrupted 
only by a trip to the dean's office. 

Choosing our studies is often a dilemma, and the 
guidance of our teachers and counselors is very 
helpful. English students know well the "composition 
conference." These twenty-minute sessions between 
pupil and teacher are held once a semester and are 
established so that teachers can evaluate with their 
students their work and offer suggestions for im- 
provement. Many language and math teachers have 
set up "help sessions" for those who are behind. 

Library passes are issued to those wishing to do 
research for term papers or reports, who come from 
study halls to use the library facilities. 

Carla Pursley, one of Howe's student librarians, checks out a 
book for Shirley Cobb. Student librarians work during their 
library practice period, learning "the tricks of the trade." 


Carol Oslos receives help on her daily Latin translation from 
Jane Brown and Bob Stevens. This method of learning is often 
used by many Latin students in order to improve their grades. 

Miss Hall listens for proper inflection and accents of a group of 
her students, as they pronounce their Spanish vocabulary. 
Spanish is becoming a popular course with the students.

During French lab, students listen to tape recordings and records 
in order to improve their pronunciation and comprehension of 
the language. The lab has proved to be very useful. 

The need for interpreters and translators in the 
field of foreign relations has become increasingly 
important in solving international problems during 
the last few years. As a result, the study of foreign 
languages has become more popular. French, Span- 
ish, and Latin, as well as a course in Greek and Latin 
Derivatives are the courses offered by Howe's for- 
eign language department. 

The relatively new language lab has added to the 
extensiveness of the language program. The twenty- 
eight booth lab with a teacher console unit enables 
students to improve their pronunciation and compre- 
hension of a language with the aid of recordings 
without disturbing class functions. 

To enhance student interest, other devices such as 
films, slides, demonstrations, reports, and supple- 
mentary materials are used. French and Spanish pu- 
pils learn additional material from speakers who 
come from the lands where their languages origi- 
nated. In addition to everyday class work, language 
students often participate in regional and state con- 
tests, receiving honors for their achievements. 


An eye for correct grammar is necessary for potential copy- 
readers. English VJ students Virginia Georgia, Tom Gilkison 
and Pat Harrell gain experience by copyreading galleys. 

Mr. Tobin, in one of his more familiar poses, listens to one 
of his English VIII students describe the symbolism shown in 
the book "1984." This class is a college preparatory course. 

I-VIII necessary for academic diploma 

Special projects, as well as the required literature 
and grammar study contribute to pupil development 
in English. A research paper in English III acquaints 
Howeites with the basic rules of writing a bibliogra- 
phy and the correct method of foot-noting, impor- 
tant to college aspirants. In English V, students 
write vocational essays, which aid in the selection of 
a career. In an elected fourth year of English, sen- 
iors gain further insight into English literature and 
grammar. Each semester "G" classes are offered, 
giving students a chance for further study and out- 
side activities. Through these comprehensive courses, 
English students have earned top honors in local and 
national contests. 

The department also offers two fine elective 
courses, public speaking and library practice. A 
semester of reading lab is required of all Howeites. 
This non-credit course increases both the reading 
ability and the comprehension of the student. 


Working his way through stacks of books, magazines and 
pamphlets, Dean Bolden adds the finishing touches to his Eng- 
lish VII term paper in order to meet an approaching deadline. 


Second year of exchange program takes 

During his stay at Howe, Mr. Pike has taken part in many 
activities. Here he enjoys the action of the Senior-Faculty bas- 
ketball game in which he was a candidate for faculty king. 

This year was the second year of Howe's partici- 
pation in the Exchange Teacher Program, in which an 
instructor from Howe takes the place of a British in- 
structor and vice versa for one year. This year, Mr. 
Kenneth Pike, from Southampton, England, ex- 
changed positions with Howe's Mr. Frank Tout. 

A graduate of London University, Mr. Pike taught 
English and coached rugby at King Edward VI School 
in Southampton. After crossing the Atlantic in mid- 
August and meeting Mr. Tout in New York, Mr. Pike 
toured the U. S. before coming to Indianapolis. 

Before going to Southampton and during vacations 
from classes, Mr. Tout also did his share of traveling 
by visiting nearly every country in Europe. By doing 
this, he put about 10,000 miles on his newly-pur- 
chased Volkswagon bought in England. 

Both teachers agree that courses are stricter in the 
U. S. than in England, but both agree that the pro- 
gram has achieved its purpose — to better the un- 
derstanding between peoples of the world. 

Since arriving in the United States, Mr. Pike has traveled 
10,000 miles in his foreign Austin-Minister car. The emblem on 
his car shows that he belongs to the Auto Association which is 

similar to our AAA. Mr. Pike remarked that the license plate 
of an English car is used for the entire life of the car. Com- 
ments are constantly made about his right-hand drive car.

musical competition and concert work 

Howe's musicians had a year full of honors and 
glory as they shone at the top of competitions all 
over the state. The band and orchestra performed 
expertly at the State Band and Orchestra Contest 
in May. Soloists and small ensembles rated almost a 
perfect "first" record at the regional and state Solo 
and Ensemble Contests. Howe sent a larger number 
of players to the All-City Symphony and Band than 
did any other school. 

The Madrigals, singing melodies a cappella in old 
English style and harmony, met many engagements 
during their busy year. Besides their regular sched- 
ule of meetings and programs, the group also sang 
for a radio program in the fall. 

Basketball games were enlivened by the Pep 
Band with their jazz, pep, and school songs. Mem- 
bers of the concert band volunteered their time for 
the Pep Band. 

Boosters of the Howe basketball team enjoyed the rousing 
music of the Pep Band, composed of members of the concert 
band, who played regularly at home basketball games.

Musically inclined 


Sounds of scales and arpeggios float out of the 
Howe Music Department and mingle with the regu- 
lar sounds of student laughter and talk as musically 
inclined Howeites intently study composers and per- 
form with amateur perfection their compositions. The 
department includes the Howe Choir, Choralaires, 
boys' and girls' octets, glee clubs, orchestra, pep 
band and Madrigals. 

Members of the Choralaires, the girls' singing or- 
ganization under the direction of Mr. Frank Wat- 
kins, filled the halls with singing during the fourth 
period as they rehearsed for their many perform- 
ances during the year. Performances included the 
annual Christmas Sing, the May Pageant, and the 
May Music Festival. 

The boys' octet consisted of boys selected from 
the choir and an accompanist. They sang several 
varieties of tunes, ranging from popular songs to ar- 
rangements of classical melodies, but they special- 
ized in singing semi-classical music. The octet sang 
for P.T.A. meetings, assemblies, church activities, 
and various other functions over the city. 

Boys' octet members (BACK ROW) Lovelace, Secrist, Nelson,

Choralaires, Choir, and Octets 

During the first hour of every school morning, the 
east wing rings with the music of the school choir. 
Directed by Frank S. Watkins, the organization, the 
most advanced vocal group in the school, performs 
for various- functions. Within our own walls, the choir 
has sung for the PTA and student assemblies at their 
respective meetings. Their voices were heard at 
Open House, the May Pageant, and at the spring 
Music Festival. The choir journeyed to several neigh- 
borhood churches, and was also heard at the Irving- 
ton Chain of Missions program. Radio WIBC recorded 
the choir for their program, "Young America Sings." 
The choir was last heard as they pronounced the 
benediction at Commencement. 

The Girls' Octet, harmonious as it is attractive, is 
composed of eight of the best feminine voices in the 
school. They give nearly fifty programs a year for 
civic and church groups, conventions and radio 
broadcasts. "Pop" Watkins also directs this group. 

Girls' Octet members are BACK ROW — Zumwalt, Oswalt, 
and Conway. SECOND ROW — Kamp, Pheasant, and Bassett. 
FRONT ROW — Wagner and Robinson (accompanist). 


P.R.R. Hollywooders bring weathermen, 

Along with endless rehearsals came long hours of instructions 
from act chairmen and faculty sponsors. Here, act members 
go over a part in the act with chairman Vicky Kemper. 

Each year Howe students turn into budding Holly- 
wood citizens as they write, direct, and act in the 
annual Pleasant Run Revue, Howe's musical variety 
show consisting of four major acts and several be- 
tween acts. Work begins in September with costum- 
ing, scenery designing and production, and rehears- 
als. Finally, in November, two performances are 
given of the big show. 

The acts chosen this year were varied as well as 
entertaining. "Capricious Cards," the antics of the 
King and Queen of Hearts and their court during a 
poker game, was written by Vicky Kemper and 
Jeannie Kightlinger. "The Magic Toyshop," by Nancy 
Carroll and Cindy McMillan, told the story of an 
enchanting toyshop opened and brought to life for 
a little girl by her fairy godmother. Sherri Bell and 
Nancy Bowman assigned a special type of weather 
to each part of the world in the act "Weather 
Around the World." In "Gadabout Greetings," by 
Jo Pheasant and Lissa Purdy, greeting cards for 
various occasions came to life for a little girl. 

Denny Wickes sang "I'm Just a Poor, Wayfaring Stranger," 
an old American folk song, as a scenery change act. The 
royal court waited in attendance as Barb Zumwalt and Ron 

West, King and Queen of Hearts, opened court in "Capricious 
Cards." Joellen Wagner and John Stevenson played parents 
of a "lovely" child on a card in "Gadabout Greetings." 

toy shop, cards, royal court to Howe 

Nurse Nancy Stewart persuaded her patient, Bob Bruner, to 
get rid of his wheel chair and dance as they portrayed a 
get-well card in "Gadabout Greetings." 

Mixed-up weathermen Larry Sachs, Mike Dugan, and Mike 
Bruney decided what kind of weather the world was going to 
receive in "Weather Around the World." 

"On With the Show, This is It!" sang the opening chorus to 
introduce the 1961 Pleasant Run Revue, the musical variety 
show directed and presented by Howe students and faculty 
sponsors. Each year, Mr. Bruce Beck, Director of Productions, 

devotes many hours toward the making of a top-notch pro- 
gram. Singers are soloists John Stevenson and Joellen Wagner, 
Rosemary Bassett, Sue Oswalt, Barbara Zumwalt, Lissa Purdy, 
Jo Pheasant, Cassandra Kamp, and Susan Robinson. 


The Violet Queen and her royal court view their domain. The 
Court is: Mike Bruney, Pat McGuire, Jim Gray, Barbara Hed- 
ding, Queen Rosemary Bassett, Linda Thompson, Don Cotton, 

Carolyn Vasil, and Woody Garland. Pages are Margaret 
Grindstaff and Kathy Robertson; the Flower Girl is Michelle 
Staton, the daughter of Howe teacher, Mr. Ralph Staton.

Everyone has a birthday, and Howe is no excep- 
tion. Each year in May, a birthday celebration is 
held on Violet Hill in front of Howe. The ceremony 
is modeled after an old English custom, the village 
May Festival, and includes dancing of traditional 
and foreign dances, acrobatics, and the beautiful 
Maypole dance. Each year a queen is chosen by 
the junior class to reign over the festivities along 
with her court of junior princesses and their escorts. 
Pages are Howe underclassmen and the flower girl 
is usually the daughter of a Howe teacher. 

This year's Philosopher, Webb Garrison, addressed 
the student body, then assured Queen Rosemary 
Bassett that Howeites would not disappoint her trust 
in them for achievement in the coming year. The 
Violet Queen then retired to her home in Violet 
Hill, to return next year to view her domain and to 
bring anew her challenge of achievement. 

Dancers from a gym class perform the may-pole dance honor- 
ing Rosemary Bassett, Howe's twenty-third Violet Queen, at 
the annual May Pageant, the official birthday celebration. 


Students pledge scholarship in NHS 

Howe's chapter of the NATIONAL HONOR 
SOCIETY, one of more than five thousand in the 
country, was organized for the purpose of further- 
ing scholarship, service, leadership, and character 
among high school pupils. Each year, enough stu- 
dents are nominated to fulfill a maximum of ten 
per cent of the junior class and fifteen per cent of the 
senior class in membership. All nominees and mem- 

bers must maintain a 6.00 grade average. A formal 
initiation service is held in December at which time 
the nominees receive their cards and pins and mem- 
bers renew their pledge to carry out the goals of 
the Honor Society. 

The NHS symbol is a keystone of learning with a 
torch of knowledge and the letters C, S, L, and S, for 
Character, Service, Leadership, and Scholarship.

and instruction for its members. Membership requirements are 

an interest in chess and an eagerness to play. Members are 
(SEATED, front) Self and Clark; (STANDING) Spear, Cook, 
Coffin, Trusty, Wahl, Shelland, Schiavarelli, Harris, Dentler. 

Competition sharp in debates, chess 

Howeites interested in chess are encouraged to 
match wits with competitors both inter- and intra- 
mural in the Howe Chess Club. Members of the lively 
club gain experience while having fun and meeting 
new people. The club was organized as a result of 
several boys who used to gather at lunch time to en- 
joy a brain-teasing game of chess after the meal. 

The fast-talkers and debaters of Howe have or- 
ganized the Forensic club. This year's active club has 
competed in school, regional and state-wide con- 
tests, and has returned with many awards and 
citations for work well done. Members are encour- 
aged to participate in oratorical, humorous, poetic, 
or dramatic fields of competition. 


Speech club members compete in school and state contests 
while learning fine points of public speaking. Sponsored by 
Mr. Steven Briggs, the club encourages all Howeites interested 

in speech. BACK ROW: Leonard, Jenner, Thomas, Croel, Nel-

Class of '62 dances in "Shangri-La" 

Ecstatic juniors reigned over the "Shangri-La" during the long- 
to-be-remembered Junior Prom of the Class of 1962. Prom 
King and Queen Candidates were BACK ROW — King Bill 

Excited juniors of the Class of '62 spent many 
hours in preparation for the highlight of the year, 
the Junior Prom. When the theme, "Shangri-La," 
was announced, committees transformed the gym 
into an oriental paradise. Each table was enhanced 
by colorful fan centerpieces and Japanese umbrellas 
as each chair. A mural of an oriental countryside lined 
the walls, and a garden with thatched teahouse, red- 

Harold, Jay Bishop, Art Keller, and David Hunter. FRONT ROW

bud tree, and a stone walk leading to a pool of water, 
was the focal point. 

At intermission, juniors and their dates watched 
Mr. Ralph Clevenger, Junior-Senior Counselor, 
crown Linda Thompson and Bill Harold as Queen 
and King of the Junior Prom and of the junior class. 
Anticipation and high hopes filled the air as eager 
juniors looked forward to their last year at Howe. 

Japanese lanterns hanging from billowing clouds of con- 
verted orange and white parachutes and a mammoth, spark- 
ling, oriental globe helped to carry out the theme of the 

Junior Prom of the Class of 1962 — "Shangri-La." Entranced 
Juniors and their dates danced to the music of the "Expressors" 
at the long-awaited highlight of their Junior year. 

'62 HILLTOPPER staff strives to earn 

The Brown and Gold is the first and biggest fall 
dance. The HILLTOPPER staff sponsors and decorates 
for this dance each year. Dreamy music was provid- 
ed by the Debonaires this year. The main decoration 
was a garden scene. The candidates for Brown Boy 
and Golden Girl walked through the garden and 
onto the stage. Minutes of anticipation and excite- 
ment passed before Mr. Thomas Stirling, principal, 
announced the reign of Nancy Bowman and John 
Leane. Other candidates were Jean Moore, Linda 
Bender, Jodi Dobbs, Doug Paul, Dan Breckenridge 
and Dick Woodbury. 

The 1960 Turnabout Twirl, also sponsored by the 
HILLTOPPER staff, is an annual spring dance. The 
theme of the dance was "April in Paris." This is the 
night the girls pay for the tickets, chauffeur their 
dates, present them with hand-made corsages, and 
treat them to a nighttime snack. Prizes were award- 
ed for the corsages in differing categories. 

The highlight of the Brown and Gold was the crowning of 
the Brown Boy and Golden Girl. Nancy Bowman and John 
Leane, both seniors, were selected to reign over the evening. 

Couples swayed to the music of the Debonaires Dance Band 
at the Brown and Gold. Adding to the dreamy mood was the 
main decoration which was a small garden scene. 


Girls present their dates with original hand-made corsages 
for the Turnabout Twirl. Prizes were awarded to Nancy Car- 
roll and Kay Offutt for their corsages at the 1960 Twirl.

and time to serving school pupils 

Student Council sponsors activities that create an 
interest among the student body. This council consists 
of one representative from each homeroom who 
serves a one-year term. The representative may be 
elected to a second term. Members of the Student 
Council elect seven officers. These persons make up 
the cabinet and meet with the teacher sponsors who 
are Mr. Moon, Mr. Wood, and Mr. Schroder to or- 
ganize the group's business. Mrs. Loew is the adviser. 

The activities of the council this year have been 
numerous. President Denny Wickes is also a member 
of the National Traffic Safety Council. Representatives 
to the City Student Council are Dick Woodbury and 
Jim Thomas. Lynda Barnes attended the National 
Student Council Leadership Conference. Every year 
the council sponsors a clean-up campaign to keep the 
students alert to the appearance of their school. It 
also sponsors an annual Senior-Faculty basketball 
game which is exciting and amusing for both the stu- 
dent body and the faculty. The Student Council also 
organizes and plans a talent assembly. This program 
displays the talent which Howe has to offer. 

Student Council sponsors a clean-up campaign annually. By 
cleaning their locker, Nancy Wagaman, Ann Arbogast and 
Nancy Hillring are doing their part to keep the school neat. 


The purpose of the Footlight Revelers Club is to 
further the cause of high school dramatics by giving 
students opportunities to participate in dramatic 
presentations. Any student taking part in a school 
production is considered a member of the club. Foot- 
light Revelers is sponsored by Mr. Bruce Beck. Presi- 
dent of this year's group is Joe Nelson. 

This spring the Revelers presented "Henrietta The 
Eighth" under the guidance and supervision of Mrs. 
Hariette Baker and Mr. Beck. The comedy was writ- 
ten by Mr. Gordon Kurtz. Henrietta is the eighth 
secretary of the Sutton family, and the three Sutton 
girls plan to use her as a private maid, but Hen- 
rietta has a different idea. 

Other Reveler presentations included the Pleasant 
Run Revue, P.T.A. Fun Night, May Pageant, and 
Christmas programs. Some members of the group 
have actual roles in the presentation, while others are 
on make-up, costuming, prompting, or ushering com- 
mittees. Several of the members have the distinction of 
belonging to the National Honorary Thespian So- 
ciety. Eligibility is based on the number of points 
earned for work on the club's productions.

and excitement for many boys of Howe 

The two clubs for the boys of Howe are Hi-Y (juniors 
and seniors), and Beta Hi-Y (freshmen and sopho- 
mores). The purpose of both clubs is "to create, main- 
tain and extend throughout home, school, and com- 
munity high standards of Christian character." 

The activities of the two clubs are similar. Both 
have swimming parties during the year at the East- 
side Y.M.C.A. The boys sell refreshments and check 
coats at home basketball games to make money for 
various projects. Hi-Y also sponsors several "after- 
game" dances. One of the most exciting Hi-Y activi- 
ties is the Model UN. Members of Tri-Hi-Y and Hi-Y 
clubs in Marion County annually participate in the 
Model UN, portraying the role of representatives 
from various nations. Another Hi-Y activity is the 
spring Sweetheart Dance. Members nominate girls as 
Sweethart candidates, and final choice is made by 
those attending the dance. Mr. Harry Totten is Hi-Y 
sponsor,- Mr. Hugh Wolf is Beta-Hi-Y sponsor. 

Broad Ripple pupil Jim Bishop, vice-pres. of Gavel Club, and 
Howe's Mike Dugan, Gavel Club pres., talk with Speaker of 
the House Richard Guthrie about the Model UN organization. 

Candidates for the Sweetheart are Mary Jordan, Carol Weaver, 
Susan Oswalt, Lynda Barnes, Marilyn Smith, and Ann Cole. 

Candidates are nominated by members of Hi-Y, and the 
Sweetheart is elected by those attending the dance.

Tri-Hi-Y is one of the largest and most active clubs 
at Howe. Any junior or senior girl may become a 
member. The activity which highlights the year's 
events is the Model UN which is fashioned after the 
UN in New York. Delegates from Tri-Hi-Y and Hi-Y 
clubs throughout Marion County participate, por- 
traying roles of representatives from foreign coun- 

Tri-Hi-Y has other different activities. The club has 
several swimming parties during the year at the 
Eastside Y.M.C.A. Speakers bring beneficial mes- 
sages to the members and add variety to the pro- 
grams. New members are introduced and presented 
with membership pins at an induction ceremony in 
October, while new officers are elected in the 
spring. Seven officers were elected this year instead 
of five as in the past. The newly created positions 
are that of sergeant at arms and historian. Mrs. 
Hariette Baker is sponsor. 

The seven officers of Tri-Hi-Y are Martha Schmidt, sergeant- 
at-arms; Cynthia McMillan, vice-president; Marilyn Smith, sec- 
retary; Andrea Tempelmeyer, historian; Judith Himes, treas- 
urer; Doris Roesener, chaplain; and Pam Butler, president.

Selofra is a club for freshmen girls. The club pro- 
motes friendship by giving the girls an opportunity 
to meet and to become acquainted with each other. 
Each girl is given a green ribbon to wear to signify 
she is a member of the freshman class. Selofra meets 
twice a month, with programs which are varied and 
interesting. Activities included in their programs are 
panel discussions, parties, a mixer, and a style show. 
Selofra has a mixer for 9B's in January to acquaint 
the new students with their school and their class- 
mates. The style show is presented annually by this 
club. The girls of the club write, direct, and produce 
the show. They also model clothes which they have 
made or which they have in their wardrobes to show 
current styles and fads. Another interesting activity 
is a demonstration presented by a beauty consultant 
who gives the girls hints about hair styles and gen- 
eral appearance.

TOWER expands to serve Howe better in 

When is the last time that your assignment was to 
count the number of Exit signs, or to find the twins 
and triplets attending Howe? For the staff of the 
Howe Tower, unusual assignments become a routine. 

As a result of increased publication this year, the 
Tower is able to provide its subscribers with a wider 
variety of news. This, of course, means an increase 
in budget as well. Midst comparing jokes and ex- 
periences, the staff creates the Howe Tower. 

Staff reporters receive their assignments from 
those posted on the bulletin board in Room 240. 
Through interviews and research, the reporter's job 
is finished and the story is copy-read. Copyreaders 
make corrections in grammar, spelling, information, 
and style. The story is then printed in column form. 

In addition to an editor-in-chief, another editor, 
known as a page editor, is appointed for each page. 
With glue and scissors, the page editors attack the 
yards of corrected, printed columns, pasting and 
cutting the columns together to produce each page 
of the Tower. Each page is printed in this form and 
the final corrections are made before the paper is 
printed in the form distributed to its readers. The 
staff then begins its work on the next Tower issue. 

Her diminutiveness proves no handicap for editor-in-chief of 
the Howe Tower, Peggy McCormick, as she directs one of 
numerous informal staff meetings to prepare the Tower. 


Copy editor Barb Zumwalt (SEATED) checks copy for errors 
despite the "help" from staff members Judi Sexton, John 
Stevenson, Pat Overmyer, Margaret Surface, and Ruth Tedrowe. 

Jimmy Billups and Mike Bruney compare headline type to de- 
termine the right kind of stories. This year the Tower changed 
its entire copy and headline type schedule for all issues.

Diamondmen compile winning record in 

One of the mainstays of the 1961 varsity baseball team was 
junior letterman Ron Yeskie. Most often a pitcher, Ron also 
played outfield, and he won the Most Valuable Player Award. 

When a coach puts together a city championship 
team one year but loses nine players from this team, 
what can he expect for the following season? Usual- 
ly, the coach can't expect too much, but Hornet 
coach Roscoe Pierson found this to be untrue. With 
six returning lettermen, Mr. Pierson built a team 
which sported an impressive ten won— three lost rec- 
ord and finished third in the city. 

In his last year as varsity baseball coach, Roscoe 
Pierson led such baseball players as Ron Yeskie, Tim 
Witsman, Jack Simpson, Jim Parsons, Jay Bishop, 
and Jim Hower. Junior Ron Yeskie, most valuable 
player in 1960, was the Hornet's pitching ace as he 
won eight games against three losses. Yeskie was 
backed up by senior Jerry Baden and by sopho- 
more Mike Martin. With a batting average of almost 
.350, Yeskie led all hitters and won the Most 
Valuable Player Award for the second year in a 

The only losses of the 1961 season came at the 
hands of city champion Cathedral by three runs, 
city runner-up Broad Ripple by three runs, and coun- 
ty champion Southport by 1 6 runs.

In varsity baseball action, Coach Roscoe Pierson gives advice 
to pitcher Jerry Baden on how to pitch to the next batter. 
Catcher Jim Parsons listens on with an air of interest. 

Spirit and hard work enabled the varsity baseball 
team to compile a 10—3 record in Coach "Rocky" 
Pierson's last year at Howe. Strong hitting, sharp 
fielding, and accurate pitching helped the diamond- 
men gain success. 

The Best Mental Attitude Award was won by senior 
letterman Jack Simpson, while the Most Improved 
Player Award went to junior letterman Jay Bishop. 
Selected captain by his teammates was senior letter 
winner Jim Hower. 

A bright future is seen for the 1962 varsity base- 
season as the reserve team posted a record of eight 
wins against only four losses. The reserves, coached 
by Mr. Denny Krick, defeated Scecina twice but lost 
to Southport, Broad Ripple, and to Manual twice. 

Coached by Mr. Harrison Richardson and Mr. 
Roger Schroder, the freshman baseball team listed a

Racquetmen display fine future promise 

The 1961 tennis team, loaded with underclassmen, 
fought through a very rough schedule and posted 
a 5—8 record. All five racquetmen will return next 
season to form an experienced squad with great 
potential. In their seventh year of competition and 
last with Lyman Combs as coach, the Hornets scored 
victories over Warren Central, Crispus Attucks, Ben 
Davis, Scecina, and Manual. Besides these two-way 
meets, Howe also participated in the Lafayette and 
Columbus Tournaments and in the City Matches. 

From the five outstanding players, Larry Carmi- 
chael was chosen Most Valuable Player, and he re- 
ceived the honor at the awards banquet. By a vote 
of his teammates, Steve Guidone was elected cap- 
tain of the 1961 team.

Varsity cindermen 

Displaying unusual scoring balance, Howe's 1961 
track team swept through the season with an unblem- 
ished record in nine dual meets. The Hornets were 
at least two deep in most positions and won several 
very close contests by capturing those vital second 
and third places. Unlimited desire and the will to 
win were always evident, and these traits contribu- 
ted most markedly to success in at least three of 
the outings. In victories over Ben Davis by 57—52, 
over Washington 551/2— 531/2, and over Manual 
55—53, one less second place would have reversed 
the decision. The spikesters again made a strong 
showing in the city meet when they captured a close 
fourth out of twelve competing schools. In the other 
six meets, The Hornets outscored their opponents in 
each by twenty-four or more points. 

Howe sponsors the Hoosier Relays, a large in-door 
track meet run in the Indiana University Fieldhouse. 
Teams from all over the state compete in this annual 
event, and 1961 was the biggest yet. Many of the 
Hornet spikesters performed very well against the 
state's best and brought home medals for their 
efforts. Trophies, medals are given to individuals.

complete season with perfect record 

The Hornets placed fifth in a total of twenty-two 
schools at the Washington Track Sectional. Leading 
scorers were Larry Pugh, placing in the 100 and 
220 yard dashes and the 880 yard relay; Bill Har- 
old, in the mile run; Dick Woodbury, in the high and 
low hurdles; Don Ambler, in the pole vault; and the 
remaining members of the 880 yard relay, Mike 
Earley, Wes McDivifr, and Pete Henshaw. These boys 
then participated in the Regional at Tech, and Bill 
Harold qualified for the State by taking a third 
place in the Tech Regional. With returning letter- 
men at almost every position, Coach Rex Anderson 
has a fine start toward the 1 962 season. 

Larry Pugh earned 116 points over the season 
and was chosen Most Valuable Player by his team- 
mates. Larry ran both the dashes and anchored the 
half mile relay team that came up with several im- 
portant triumphs. Ranking high in total points scored 
were Pete Henshaw, Dick Woodbury, and Bill Har- 
old. The honor of being co-captains was conferred 
upon Henshaw and Harold. Mike Simmons was 
awarded the trophy for Best Mental Attitude for his 
clean sportsmanship and ability as a leader. 

Leaping high in the air, broad jumper Jim Rayot strains for 
extra inches as the scorers wait to measure his leap. Jim is 
a valuable letterman who will return next year.

Reserve, Frosh boast brilliant seasons 

The Hornet reserve cindermen fought through a 
rugged schedule and finished with a very respecta- 
ble 5—2 record. Only losses were to Scecina and 
Crispus Attucks by identical narrow margins of 56— 
52. Four of the five victories were by thirty points 
or more while the squad defeated Washington 59— 
50. Graduation left some gaps in the varsity which 
these boys should capably fill next year. 

In keeping with the winning tradition of the Howe 
track teams, the frosh completed the season with a 
sparkling 7—1 record in dual meets. A second place 
finish in the City Meet and a fourth place in the 
Wood Relays proved that the team could also excel 
in the large meets. The Carl Spiess Award for out- 
standing sportsmanship among the first-year spike- 
sters was presented to Bud Bayne.

Rough going for inexperienced golfers 

Three returning lettermen, Jim Birk, Dave Smartz, 
and Ted Kolsky, provided the nucleus for the 1961 
varsity golf squad. Characterized by inexperience 
and lack of reserves, the linksmen compiled a rec- 
ord of only four wins, five losses, and one tie. Par 
shooters for the team were Jim Birk and Dave 
Smartz. Both boys were seniors with four years of 
previous experience. Birk and Smartz led the golf 
team to wins over Shortridge, Sacred Heart, Manual, 
and Warren Central. The tie meet was with east- 
side foe, Scecina. Recipient of the Most Valuable 
Player Award in 1960, Jim Birk placed high in many 
meets in 1961 and received the award for the sec- 
ond year in a row. 

The linksmen practice daily at Pleasant Run Golf 
Course to better their golf games and to bring them 
"down" to par. Coached by Mr. Fred Lemley, the 
golfers never gave up their determination, even 
when the chips were down. 

The golf team is the least publicized of the athlet- 
ics at Howe. For the 1962 season, the Hornets will 
have five returning lettermen. The future looks bright, 
and the golfers deserve student backing. 

Attentively Jim Birk watches Dave Smartz take a practice 
swing while tuning up for a golf meet. Both boys were senior 
letter winners and formed the nucleus for the 1961 squad. 


Coach Wood, gridmen praise student body 

The 1961 varsity football season was a rough one 
for the players, the coach, and the student body. 
A new coach, Mr. B. C. Wood, formerly assistant 
football coach at Anderson College, had eight let- 
termen with which to make a football team. Mr. 
Wood's greatest obstacle was the big lack of size, 
as he had only two boys weighing over 200 pounds. 

The Hornets compiled a season record of one win, 
eight losses, and one tie with the lone win coming 
over past nemesis Washington, and the tie game 
being played with Anderson's Madison Heights. 
Despite a losing season, the gridmen displayed a 
great will to win and practiced hard to improve 
their record. Strong student support was prevelant 
all through the season and was greatly appreciated 
by the team. At the awards assembly, the squad 
gave the students a standing ovation in appreciation. 

With eight returning lettermen, the prospect for 
the 1961 varsity football season was good. But de- 
feat met the Hornets at the start. In the first game, 
with Tech, Howe was smashed by a score of 38—0. 
Four times during the season, the gridmen were held 
scoreless, and also four times they were held to only 
six points. 

The one-win, eight-loss, one-tie season was not 
completely glum. Bright spots came in the Nobles- 
ville, Madison Heights, and Washington games. 
Against Noblesville, down 27—0, the Hornets staged 
a fourth quarter in which they scored three touch- 
downs to pull the final score up to 27—20. At An- 
derson, Wood's men battled Madison Heights to a 
6—6 tie with halfback Tom Tiedemann scoring the 
Howe TD. A 38—27 victory was registered over 
Washington, a big problem in the past.

Howe tacklers Paul Pusey (14), Steve Hooper (26), and 
George Hunsucker (30) surround a Noblesville runner as they 
prepare to bring him down in the homecoming game. 

Aspiring for 1961 Fall Sports Queen were Kathy Murray, 
Betty Leach, Jodi Ritter, Marcia Carter, Kathy Walker, Lynda 
Barnes, Eileen Willeford, and Pat Keegan. Acting as royalty 

at the Noblesville homecoming game, sophomore Marcia Car- 
ter was crowned Queen in a new ceremony in which each 
candidate rode around the field in a convertible. 


Strong blocking by Dick Woodbury (16) and Ron Bowling 
(13) opens a gaping hole in the Noblesville defense for sen- 
ior halfback Tom Tiedemann (7) to make a sizable gain. 

A frequent scene at time outs during the games was this one 
in which rookie coach Bob Wood gives advice about the next 
series of offensive plays to quarterback John Leane. 

Three wins compiled by frosh, reserves 

Recipient of the Most Valuable Player Award was 
junior fullback Dick Woodbury. Dick was the lead- 
ing ground gainer and general workhorse of the 
team. The Best Mental Attitude Award went to sen- 
ior Bob Espich. Tri-captains were selected by the 
team. They were seniors John Leane, Bob Espich, 
and Steve Hooper. Other standouts on the team 
were halfbacks Tom Tiedemann and Charlie Bech- 
tel and linemen Larry Johnson and Paul Pusey. 

First year reserve football coach, Mr. Kenneth 
Long, an alumnus of Broad Ripple High School, led 
his reserve team to a two-win, five-loss record. The 
Brown and Gold reserves chalked up wins over 
Scecina and Warren Central. 

Coaching the freshman team was 1960 reserve 
coach, Mr. Harrison Richardson. The frosh had o 
rugged season defeating only Scecina. The Hornets 
posted a season record of one win and five losses. 

Noblesville tacklers converge around Dick Woodbury (16) as 
he digs for a first down in the homecoming game. Dick was 
the Hornet's leading ground gainer and most valuable player. 


During the season, many boys on the reserve football team 
dressed for varsity games. Members of the reserve team were 
Stan Bradley, Kipp Clark, Steve Day, Gary Deeter, Elliott 

Gill, Jim Gilpin, Steve Hart, Gary Koons, Mike Lunsford, Mike 
Rider, Larry Sanborn, Miles Smith, Bob Van Dyke, and 
Dick Ulrey. The reserves compiled a two-won-five-lost record.

Senior runners lead as harriers gain 

Six senior harriers composed the nucleus of Howe's 
1961 varsity cross-country team. Led by Bill Harold 
and Larry Sachs, the team dropped only one dual 
and one tri-way meet against some of the state's 
toughest competition. These losses came from state 
champ Ben Davis and city champ Manual by one 
point. The Hornets opened the season with a hard- 
fought victory over Washington and a romp over 
Lawrence. Following the second place behind Ben 
Davis and ahead of North Central in the tri-way 
meet, the distance men rolled off three straight wins 
before the loss to Manual in the season finale. 

This year was the twenty-first running of the 
annual Howe Invitational, and in it the home team 
took a respectable fifth out of fifteen teams. With 
John Wiggins sparking the improved team effort, 
the Hornets placed well in the Shortridge Invitational 
and City and Sectional meets. Bill Harold received 
the Most Valuable Player award for the second 
year in a row, and Sachs was elected Captain. 

A promising reserve team posted a record of 5 
and 1 with a third place in the City. The frosh had 
a 1 and 2 record, finishing fourth in the City.

Experience is key 

Experience is a vital factor in a basketball team, 
and in the 1961-62 varsity basketball season, Coach 
James Stutz had no lack of it. With seven lettermen 
returning from last year's three-win-seventeen-loss 
team, Mr. Stutz built a team which racked up the 
most successful Hornet basketball record in five long 
years. The 11 — 11 record equals the record posted 
by the 1 957 Howe five. 

The Hornets were led by junior forward Jim Ru- 
bush who maintained a 14-point average over the 
season, Dave Nichoalds, 6'6" senior center, and 
senior forward Steve Hooper. Rounding out the first 
six players were junior Jay Wise, Denny Barrett, and 
Dan Breckenridge. The Hornets possessed 
size, speed, rebounding strength, and accurate 
shooting eyes. Above all the netmen had a strong de- 
sire to win. 

The varsity netters had a strong attraction for 
their home floor in the 1961-62 season. Losing their 
first two home games, the Hornets came back to win 
their next seven straight home games. Home losses 
were to Washington and North Central. 

Next year's outlook is bright as there will be 
seven returning lettermen from this year's squad.

Howe's varsity basketball team played one of the 
toughest schedules in the state. A .500 record is an 
accomplishment with such a schedule. The Hornets 
played four teams which were eventual sectional 
winners and the teams which were city and county 

Starting the season with a loss, the Hornets won 
their second game in two overtimes. Then the Brown 
and Gold upset highly touted Broad Ripple by 1 1 
points. A second upset came about when they 
dropped Columbus, rated in the state's top 20 
teams at that time. 

In the city tournament, Howe defeated Arling- 
ton, but dropped its second contest to Crispus At- 
tucks in a hard-fought game. 

At the Southport Sectional Tourney, the netmen 
handled Mount Comfort with ease for a 47-point 
win. However, the Hornets lost their second game 
by a 22-point margin to Franklin Central's Flashes.

Mr. Roger Schroder, the freshman basketball team compiled

boys tryout for frosh basketball but only 25 boys can be kept 
for the team. There are two teams — the first, or "A," team 
consisting of 15 boys and the second, or "B," team which has 
10 players. At any time during the season, boys may go up 
to the "A" team or down to the "B" team as the case may be. 

Several awards were given to basketball players. 
Among those were the Most Valuable Player Award, 
which went to Jim Rubush, and the Best Mental Atti- 
tude Award, won by Dan Breckenridge. Steve Hooper 
was named varsity team captain. Tom Ott and Chuck 
Mundy received awards for the best free-throw 
shooting percentages on the frosh and reserve teams. 

Mr. Steve Vencel's reserve team compiled a record 
of 15 wins and 7 losses in the 1961-62 season. The 
Hornets also came in second in the city tournament, 
defeating Arlington, Attucks, and Wood, but losing 
to champion Tech, 64—45. The reserves defeated Ar- 
lington and Attucks twice but lost twice to Tech. 

The freshman basketball team, coached by Mr.

Cheerleaders enliven sports events by 

Whenever Howeites attend Howe football and 
basketball games, they see a group of six girls dedi- 
cated to the job of building school spirit and putting 
spark into spectators at these events. These six girls 
are the cheerleaders who brave cold, damp weather 
and the thought of possible defeat to provide the 
enthusiasm which drives our team to victory. Under 
the direction of Miss Janice Brown, the cheerleaders 
spend many evenings after school practicing numer- 
ous yells, songs, and routines. They work hard until 
every move they make is in unison. 

Each year tryouts are held for cheerleaders, and 
each girl has to prepare and present her own rou- 
tine as a test of her creativity and leadership. 

In addition to leading cheers at the games, the 
cheerleaders organize and lead the cheerblock, 
plan and direct all pep assemblies, and make post- 
ers and give speeches to boost school spirit. 

Returning from last year's cheer squad is Pam 
Butler. Others are Louellen Park, Donna Prell, Mary 
B. Robertson, Marcia Townsend, and Carol Weaver. 

1 MB£Y* ir 'V ■ 

As the basketball game hectically continues, varsity cheer- 
leader Marcia Townsend calmly watches from the sideline. 
The cheerleaders work hard to put spirit into athletic events. 

Leading cheers at reserve football and basketball games was 
the job of reserve cheerleaders Pat Harrell, Diane Crossland, 
Judy Mishler, and Jodi Dobbs. Mary Jordan is not pictured. 

Freshman cheerleaders for the 1961-62 basketball season 
were Nancy Brooks, Nancy Watson, Connie Harrell, Diane 
Corbin, and Janice Townsend. Not pictured in Linda Andress. 


building enthusiasm and school spirit 

A love of athletics, a loud voice and strong lungs, and femi- 
ninity are the only requirements for membership in the Howe 
girls' cheerblock. Girls from all four classes, dressed in capes 

and gloves made by the P.T.A., back their team on to victory. 
The athletic teams supported by the block appreciate the 
strong backing, especially when they are losing. 

Yelling their hearts out at all varsity football and basketball 
games, varsity cheerleaders Carol Weaver, Donna Prell, 
Mary B. Robertson, Marcia Townsend, Louellen Park, and Pam 

Butler put spirit into the fans to push their team onto vic- 
tory. The girls work hard to support our teams whether win- 
ning or losing and practice hard after school during the year.

Determined grapplers show improvement 

Practice, diet, sleep is the continual work-out for 
many members of the wrestling team. Some boys 
spend as much as three hours a day practicing in 
order to stay in condition. Although the team was 
lacking in experience, the grapplers compensated 
with determination. As the points began to add in 
their favor, the Hornets defeated Arlington and 
Tech near the end of the season. 

Steve Guidone was the Most Valuable Player on 
the varsity squad. He was the city champion and 
placed third in the state. On his overall season rec- 
ord, Steve won 24 matches while losing only two. 
Dan Diersing had a fine season average winning 
13 of 20 pairings and placing third in the city. 

In the reserve city meet Stan Bradley copped a 
first place. The freshman team also had its city 
champions as Bill Dobson and Bill Greaver placed 
first in their weight classes. The freshman team fin- 
ished with a 2 and 8 season record while 3 and 1 1 
was the reserve slate. Many of these boys will be 
needed to fill the ranks of varsity next year.

keep the players going full speed. Taping ankles and legs 
is one of Mr. Rehm's specialties which he demonstrates. 

Managers work unseen to support teams 

Behind every winning team there's a good coach, 
a good trainer, and good athletic managers. Howe 
is very fortunate in all of these categories. Several 
students volunteer for manager positions,- and if they 
are chosen, a great amount of work lies ahead. 

Distributing uniforms, keeping equipment in good 
order, and caring for slight injuries are all part of 
the managers' work. Each day they are asked if 
they will tape up an ankle or open the towel room. 
Mr. Justin Rehm is the trainer, and he assigns var- 
ious duties to the boys. They must not only attend 
all of the games but also each of the practices and 
scrimmages. The manages devote as much or more 
time to the team as do the players. 

The squad of athletic managers included Bob Bru- 
ner, varsity manager and in charge of the equip- 
ment room,- Dan Murphy, reserve manager,- and 
Mike Nation, recorder of statistics. Jerry Carter 
worked in the training room, and Ric Bartlett was 
the freshman basketball manager. Carlos Depositor 
and Dennis Durham helped with the wrestling teams. 

Bob Rumbaugh and Tom Tiedemann receive their running 
equipment from Bob Bruner while others wait their turn. Hand- 
ling equipment is one of the managers' most important duties. 

Intramurals provide activities for a 

Intramurals offer the opportunity for many boys 
to participate in inter-school sports when they might 
not otherwise have the chance due to lack of ability 
or time. Contests are supervised by faculty sponsors, 
but the boys manage many of their own details. A 
junior-senior league and a freshman-sophomore 
league were set up to provide more equal competi- 
tion between classes. 

Cross-country at the intramural level is in its sec- 
ond year at Howe. Many boys take part in order to 
get in condition for coming winter sports. At the 
end of the season, the runners are awarded medals 
based on their performances in the scheduled meets 
and the number of practices attended. 

The most popular intramural sport is basketball. 
Over two hundred energetic players participated 
this year. The junior-senior league play was high- 
lighted by the addition of a faculty team which was 
preparing for its annuel battle with the seniors. The 
season is ended by an elimination tournament, and 
the victorious teams gain the league championships. 

In this jump-ball situation the "skin" team seems about to con- 
trol the tip against the efforts of the "shirts." Play is always 
spirited and aggressive in intramural games. 

Eight players scramble for positions under the backboard as 
they prepare to battle for the rebound if the shot fails. Many 
exciting moments pack the games until the end. 


Members of Letter man's Club and G.A.A. 

Barbara Rhodes demonstrates one of the many different stunts 
that the girls perform on the horse. G.A.A. gives its members 
an opportunity to try many activities and new athletic stunts. 

The Girls' Athletic Association is one of the oldest 
clubs still active at Howe. The club is open to any 
girl who is interested in enjoying a wide variety of 
activities. The aim of the organization is to encour- 
age good sportsmanship and to promote companion- 
ship among the girls. 

Members of the G.A.A. participate in volleyball, 
bowling, archery, and swimming under the direction 
of Miss Johanne Guenter. In December the girls join 
with the Lettermen's Club to sponsor the Winter 
Wonderland Dance. The members take care of 
decorations and arrangements for the dance band. 

"Keep your eye on that basket" thinks Sue Stafford as she 
lets the basketball fly for two points. Many girls have become 
very adept in basketball — a sport not for the boys only. 

The 1961 Winter Wonderland Dance is enjoyed by many 
Howeites, both "stag and drag." This annual dance com- 
pletes the school activities before the Christmas vacation. 


gain entertainment, provide services 

Winter Wonderland King candidates are Jim Madrill, Jim 
Binney, Dick Corley, Bob Espich, Joe Nelson, Dick Woodbury, 
Ward Poulous, and Brent Anderson. Joe Nelson was king. 

Lettermen's Club is designed for boys interested 
in all fields of athletics. In order to be eligible for 
membership, one must have received a .varsity let- 
ter,- and participation in the club activities retains 
this membership. Basketball, swimming, and bowling 
are the most popular group sports in which the 
members engage. 

Under the direction of sponsor Mr. Sam Kelley 
and President Jay Bishop, the Lettermen's Club is 
fast becoming Howe's outstanding service club. 
Members aid the school by parking cars at athletic 
events and by ushering at basketball games and 
many other school functions. 

The Lettermen's Club and G.A.A. are co-sponsors 
of the Winter Wonderland Dance. This dance has 
become the highlight of the school's Christmas sea- 
son. The boys' part in the dance affairs consist of 
publicity, ticket sales, and after-dance clean-up.

where are found the faculty, dignified administra- 
tors with down-to-earth personalities; seniors, proud, 
yet apprehensive of the future,- juniors, working for 
seniorhood; sophomores, frowning on the frosh, who 
display enthusiasm coveted by their elders. This is 
Thomas Carr Howe High School with people. 

Educational responsibilities to each 

What keeps Howe buzzing? Of course the answer 
is the faculty! Mr. Thomas Stirling and his able staff 
work in many areas to improve themselves for their 
jobs, and to improve the school. 

Teachers, as well as pupils, give their free time to 
Howe clubs and productions for each school activity 
is sponsored by a faculty member. 

Besides instructing and assisting the student body 
of Howe, the teachers spend many hours in work- 
shops and special classes learning how to better per- 
form their teaching duties. Many teachers spend their 
vacations working on advanced degrees. 

Unusual hobbies fill the informal lives of Howe's 
staff. Mr. Briggs is a department store Santa Claus. 
Mr. Beck is an accomplished pianist. "Pop" Watkins 
and Mr. Fleck help their churches by directing choirs. 
Mr. Carr "spelunks" during his vacations, and Mr. 
Stirling uses his artistic talents to paint in water color. 
Mr. Pike and Mr. Long indulge themselves in long 
games of chess. Mr. Ruschhaupt raises dogs and 
horses. Mr. Tobin won second place in the "Best 
Built Man in Indiana" Contest. He lifts weights as a 
hobby. Mrs. DeWaard collects shells and has a large, 
unusual collection. She also has decorated the in- 
terior of her home by hand painting her walls with 
designs. Mr. Carlson enters recipe contests and wins! 

Mr. Kenneth Pike, the school's second English teacher on the 
exchange program, spends much of his free time talking with 
Mr. Stirling and other teachers about his trip to America.

Yes, the checks have arrived! This is perhaps one of the most 
welcome of all sights the teachers see. Mr. Denny Krick won- 
ders who has hidden his check while Mrs. Genrich looks for it. 

Each teacher looks forward to his lunch period as much as each 
of the pupils. This forty-five minutes gives the teachers a chance 
to enjoy good food and catch up on the latest gab. 

Once a month the department heads have a meeting in which 
they discuss curriculum and administrative problems. The deci- 
sions are relayed to other teachers at department meetings.

Can a small-town college girl find happiness 
among the scrambling subways, booming business, 
persistent playboys, and soaring skyscrapers of New 
York City? This year's senior play, "Ask Any Girl," 
provided a fun-filled account of young Meg Wheel- 
er's sojourn in the big city. Feeling restrained in the 
search for a suitable marriage partner in her home- 
town, Meg ventures to New York with her parents and 
two elderly aunts, who approve the Madison Avenue 
Girls' Hotel as Meg's residence. 

While taking part in a survey, Miss Wheeler meets 
sophisticated Miles Doughton. Meg's attention soon 
is lavished on Miles' brother Evan, whom she decides 
is the "perfect mate." Her conniving tricks to win 
Evan lend to the mirth of the play. 

Woven into the plot of the leading couple's ro- 
mance is another love affair, that of Meg's room- 
mate Jeannie and her suitor Alvin. Other hotel in- 
habitants and employees of Doughton & Doughton 
combined to present an outstanding performance. 

Meg's confidence in Evan's love causes her to become greatly 
alarmed when Evan enters the lobby of Madison Avenue Girls' 
Hotel with flirtatious Lisa snuggling at his side. 

A slightly-too-plump Jeannie tries nonchalantly to avoid the 
wooing of Alvin, a shipping clerk turned executive. The ta- 
bles turn when Jeannie accepts his marriage proposal.

No matter where girls gather, gossip is almost sure to circulate. 
As Jeannie looks through her mail and Ada tends to the 
switchboard, Heidi, Ruby, and Lisa discuss the latest. 

Miles Doughton, the manager of the research bureau, lights 
Meg's cigarette when she offers her opinion in a survey of 
four new flavors: anise, peppermint, rose, and spearmint.

We have certainly had a successful year, 

At the annual vespers service on Sunday, June 10, Howe 
seniors, parents, and patrons of the community heard the 
choir sing the traditional "The Lord Bless You and Keep You." 

Since receiving senior rings on February 10 of 
last year, we, the 1962 seniors of Howe High 
School, have gradually advanced to a respected 
position among all Howeites. As freshmen, we calm- 
ly accepted hisses in assembly and bashfully picked 
up our books when teasing upperclassmen knocked 
them from our hands. In time we gained stature, 
and proudly we "booed" at other freshmen when they 
dropped their trays in lunch. We were still inferior 
though, as our butterfly nets signified. The arrival of 
the Junior Prom and class rings paved the way for 
our last and greatest year. 

There were the usual things — mock election, 
homeroom in the cafeteria, front row seats in as- 
sembly, class officers, colors, parties, and, as al- 
ways, the commencement and senior prom. But 
somehow each of these prestige symbols meant 
more to us; this year the honors were ours. Together 
we cheered our athletic teams, rehearsed for the 
Pleasant Run Revue, laughed at "Jose Jimenez," 
studied our Indiana government, sang along with 
Mitch, danced the "Twist," and weeped at our last 
sectionals. It was a year of mixed emotions, and 
one never to be forgotten. 

From babies to hillbillies, from a doctor to a calypso dancer 
complete with bongoes, all types of senior basketball players 
showed up for the annual contest with the faculty "fatmen," 

only to see the senior team go down in defeat. Besides the 
rousing entertainment of the game, the girls' and boys' 
drill teams and the cheerleaders provided some laughs.

As they get ready for the prom, seniors 
realize that in a few hours their high 
school days will all be over. With the 
strains of "Pomp and Circumstance" still 
in his mind, each senior will soon dance 
to the music at the Indiana Roof, then 
dine at the Heritage, the Chuck Wagon, 
or the Italian Village. Proudly Jim Gir- 
ton presents his date, Pat Mulry with an 
orchid corsage, the dream of every girl.

... and the 1962 HILLTOPPER staff meets the 
final deadline and hands over the tools of the trade 
to next year's staff. The preceding summer we spent 
learning about yearbook layout and copywriting in 
summer institutes. In school we spent many days 
taking pictures, recording names, counting money, 
drawing layouts and writing for our book. 

The HILLTOPPER became a larger book this year 
and used the offset printing process for the first time. 
The staff is indebted to Mr. Bob Cavanagh of Amer- 
ican Yearbook Company, Mr. Jack Bundy of S. K. 
Smith Cover Company, and to Earl and Mike Loud- 
ermilk of Loudermilk's Studios for photography. 

Cheers at the games, prettiest dresses at the dance, 
jeans and sweat shirts at scenery painting sessions, 
and the everyday faces of Howeites hard at work in 
classes went into this yearbook. Distribution of the 
HILLTOPPER, closely followed by graduation signal 
the end of this school year. 

The HILLTOPPER has recorded the events of this 
year in the hope that you, the reader, will remem- 
SCHOOL- 1962.
