AN INDIVIDUAL AT NORTHWEST IS
SOMEONE WHO IS HIMSELF AND AN
IMPORTANT PART OF HIS SCHOOL . . .
Northwest individuals are
important part of school
Twenty-three hundred individ-
uals unite to make Northwest High
School. Each has his own interests
and talents. Each has his own likes
and dislikes. Each chooses his own
way of life, his own goals. But
each has one thing in common —
each is someone . . .
Whether he is a senior planning
to enter college or a freshman
struggling to make average grades,
he is an important part of North-
west High School. He constitutes
the football team, the choir, Stu-
dent Council, history club, and
English classes. Certain pupils sur-
pass others and become club
presidents, Honor Society mem-
bers, editors of publications, and
members of the Exercise in Knowl-
But even the pupil who doesn't
participate in any of these is an
intricate part of Northwest. With-
out him, there would be no audi-
ence for the musicals, no fans to
yell along with the cheerleaders,

Lafayette Square provides
pupils place to work, shop
To hundreds of Pioneers, spa-
cious Lafayette Square Shopping
Center became a balanced source
of money-saving and money-
spending. As last summer pro-
gressed and new stores flashed
grand openings, job applications
bombarded the stores. Many Pio-
neers kept part-time jobs for the
duration of the school year. Of
course, not everyone diligently
saved those weekly checks. Lafay-
ette Square became a hang-out —
a center for teens to browse and
buy. Many came merely to sit qui-
etly, watching the shoppers and
enjoying the sparkle of the famous
rainbow fountain in the mall. Lafay-
ette Square changed student life.

Stadium reality result
of diligent work by many
Fridav, Nov. 1, 1968, a wish be-
came realitv for over 4000 people.
For Pioneers, for teachers, for con-
tractors and builders — for the en-
tire community — it was the cul-
mination of six years labor. North-
west High School proudly presented
its new football stadium. During
those six years, individual contri-
butions, NPT activities, and school-
sponsored projects such as the
Student Council drive and "Time
Out For Ginger" added to the huge
sum needed to start construction.
Highlighting the halftime cere-
monies was the coronation of the
stadium king and queen, chosen
by the amount of money donated
in their behalf.
Mayor Richard Lugar and Phil
Eskew, Commissioner of the
Indiana High School Athletic Asso-
ciation, spoke briefly at the dedica-

Student life is comprised of many
things. To each individual at North-
west it may mean something dif-
ferent. To some it means proms,
picnics, and a talent show. To
others it's a special Christmas con-
cert, an after-game dance or a sock
hop in the gym. It may mean a
homecoming celebration or a mu-
sical or perhaps an after school job
or a summer of travel. Each individ-
ual at Northwest leads an active life

Summer pulls busy pupils
to many different scenes
During the summer, man) Pio-
- forged ahead in their quest
for education and enjoyment. Sev-
eral attended summer institutes in
fields, such as journalism, cheer-
leading, foreign language, and
government. Paula Parker, senior,
brought honor to herself and to her
school bv becoming Governor of
Girl's State. Nancy Huisman, senior,
traveled to Europe while Mike
Rader, senior, toured Mexico.
In Julv the summer dramatics
class presented the three act play
"The Bat" with Elise Jamison and
Mike Bennett portraying the lead-
ing roles. This dramatics class in-
cluded several pupils from other
schools who also took part in the
presentation. Many other North-
west pupils attended classes during
the summer to enable them to have
a lighter schedule or take an elec-
tive in the fall.
For some, summer meant an
opportunity to get a job. Others
used the summer as a chance to
rest up for the new year. These
spent their time swimming, horse-
back riding, and lying in thesun.

Holiday spirit fills halls
with enthusiasm, thrills
In spite of mild weather the
Christmas spirit arrived at North-
west on schedule. Many clubs
sponsored parties in the cafeteria
or home economics dining room to
celebrate the season. To add to the
festivities, the Student Council dec-
orating committee set up a large
Christmas tree in the main lobby
which had been donated by Mr.
Peter Davis, guidance counselor.

were over. Everyone's main worry

Several special concerts were
presented by the music depart-
ment. Besides the annual Christmas

Northwest pupils excel other
than in the classroom, in athletics

Thespians highlight year
with 'Sound of Music'
Smearing 25 pounds of wheat
paste on scraps of paper to make a
paper mache mountain, chanting
rosaries, and stretching a bit to
reach a dancing partner sound like
three entirely abstract problems,
but to cast and stage crew members
of "The Sound of Music," they were
very much related.
A smash Broadway musical and
Academy Award winning film,
"The Sound of Music" was present-
ed March 14 and 15 with Sandra
Sprouse and Lonny Huber in the
lead roles of Maria and Captain
Von Trapp. While petite Sandra and
tall Lonny faced difficulties in danc-
ing a Laendler folk dance, 26 girls
patiently learned nuns' proper con-
duct — walking, kneeling, crossing
themselves, and chanting Latin.

including five new to the Northwest
faculty, taught courses such as in-

at Northwest High School," said
Mr. Richard Cummins, head guid-
ance director. Under his direction,
four counselors directed pupils in
their programs and vocational
choices. Catering to all pupils, the
guidance department emphasized
a personal-social aspect.
Special programs sponsored by
the guidance department included
both the senior and freshman par-
ent nights, College Day for jun-
iors and seniors, and Careers Day
for the whole student body.
Seniors faced college and career
planning, juniors and sophomores
new program schedules, and fresh-
men an entirely new world in high
school. But all had the assistance of
the guidance department which
encouraged students to make ap-
pointments for counseling.

techniques in their field.
Meanwhile, Pioneer musicians
developed their talents under Mr.
Darrel Horton, music department
head. Besides the usual band, or-

A new tradition was started at
NHS in 1968. For the first time the
Reserve Officers' Training Corps
Program was offered. With over
175 cadets enrolled, the battalion
participated in extracurricular activ-
ities such as drill meets, rifle tour-
naments and the Veteran's Day
The objectives of the ROTC pro-
gram was to develop student habits
of orderliness and precision and to
instill discipline and respect for
constituted authority. The program
tried to build self-confidence and
to encourage a high sense of per-
sonal honor and deportment.
The highlight of the year for the
cadets was the first Military Ball

as its theme "Rainbows in Heaven."

For spring 1968, the Northwest
tennis team compiled a season rec-

the varsity's triumphs were the
Speedway Invitational, where they
finished third, and the Howe Invita-
tional, where they placed fourth.
Their crowning achievement, how-
ever, was the fifth place finish in
the city tournament. During that
tournament, Curt Sidener, junior,
was runner-up in singles.
In the fall 1968 state tournament,
played at Ben Davis, the team found
new talent. The Kersey brothers,
Dave, a sophomore, and Kenney,
a junior, both from Henderson,
Kentucky, played for Northwest.
These two, plus more underclass-
men talent, will form the nucleus
of coach Don Thompson's team
for the next year.

Inexperience marked the 1968
Pioneer football fortunes. The var-
sity team finished the season with
a 1 — 9 record. The season was high-
lighted by the dedication of the
school's new football stadium.
Ben Davis was the opponent in
the dedication game. The Pioneers
matched the festive mood by lead-
ing most of the game, losing in the
closing minutes to the rival Giants.
The varsity's lone victory was
over Wood's Woodchucks. But
the Pioneers faced an ambitious
schedule with six of their foes
being ranked among the state's top
20during the season.
The Northwest squad was an in-
experienced one with only 10 of

jects for landscaping and the foot-
ball stadium, heading clean-up cam-
paigns for cafeteria and school
grounds, running and regulating
school social affairs, ushering at
performances and open houses, fur-
thering school spirit were the re-
sults of the combined efforts of
some 70 Student Council represen-
Student Council was also the
propelling force behind many after-
game dances including homecom-

interest more Pioneers in school
activities, to improve conditions of
Northwest, and to promote a
healthy student-faculty relationship.

took the vast challenge of inform-

readers through the Telstar, North-
west's bi-weekly newspaper. With
a touch for the inquisitive, reporters
invaded every corner to find news.
For the first time, Telstar won an
All-American rating for the 1968
spring semester. To add to NHS
honors, Sharlene Queen was se-
lected secretary of the Indiana High

Fifteen journalists aspired to the
NHS chapter of Quill and Scroll,
which recognizes meritorious
service and achievements in stu-
dent publications. To be eligible,
a student had to be at least a junior
with two semesters in publications
and maintain a B average. Besides
the spring publications banquet,
Quill and Scroll also sponsored
convention and workshop trips.

Outstanding dramatists gain
National Thespian status
lust one of the many jobs of junior Mike Bennett, stage direc-
tor, is operating the spotlight during performances.
Who could replace the Bogarts,
the Gables, the Garbos of yester-
year? Perhaps Northwest's Thespian
Troupe 2625 had the answers all
along. To become a member of the
National Thespian Society, a stu-
dent must earn ten Thespian points.
He may appear on stage, work after
school on scenery, or work on
costume, make-up, props, or pub-
Working together, some 30 Thes-
pians taught Pioneer Players "the
ropes" of costuming, make-up, and
publicity. Any student interested in
dramatics could join Pioneer Play-
ers; often his joining motivated his
desire to become a Thespian.
A group of Thespians attended
the film biography, "Funny Girl."
Some experienced another branch
of drama by directing one-act plays.
For the first time, these plays were
presented after school.
Thespian officers were Lonny
Huber, president; Gary Stewart,
vice-president; Sandy Sprouse, sec-
retary; and Arleen Bolton, clerk.

sweethearts and they are friends.
But most important each individual
at Northwest is someone and will
always be remembered as some-
one who was fun to be with, to
talk to, and to work with.

One highlight of their junior year
was the prom, "A Summer Place."
An ambition of this year's senior
class was the completion of the
stadium. Although they lost the
stadium fund drive contest in 1967,

Many memories followed the
senior class from the first day of
their freshman year until gradua-
tion day. New aspects of life are
opening up to the graduating sen-
iors, but no member of the class
of 1969 will forget his years at
lamboree and Homecoming Queen Diana
Skinner is an outstanding member of the
senior class at Northwest.
Basking in the applause from their fellow
seniors are Diane Hanft and Gary Cosgrove,
candidates for stadium king and queen.

As juniors, members of the class of '69 watch

Class of 1970 sees end in
sight after 11 years work
With the opening of school last
fall, the class of 1970 finally had the
distinction of being upperclassmen.
Keeping up with certain fads,
participating in sports and belong-
ing to other activities aren't all that
kept juniors busy. Along with other
courses, chemistry and U.S. history
The junior class has already made
many marks which will be looked
back upon. Still, the future waits
for more progress in their ability —
mentally and physically.
The class of 70s spirit was dem-
onstrated when they backed the
stadium fund and the junior girl
was named queen. Also in spring
the juniors sponsored a dance,
"Happiness is . . ." to raise money
for their prom.
The junior prom which took
place in April was only one event
which will be looked back upon by
many Pioneers. The future though,
holds the key to unlock a new year
that will be even more meaningful
as a senior.
Waiting for the announcement of the king
and queen are junior candidates Steve
Saligoe and Pat Contos.
Caught in action is Dave Mason, junior,
drummer of the "Clan."

The class, of 71 returning for
their second year at Northwest
found the routine a little more
familiar than one year ago.
Throughout the year, sopho-
mores were found dissecting fish
and frogs. Likewise, they were seen
in geometry classes learning the
bisecting of planes and memoriz-
ing postulates and theorems.
In addition to classroom studies,
many achieved high goals in extra-
curricular activities and a wide vari-
ety of sports. The sophomores were

girls leading cheers for the re-
serve squad. A sophomore repre-
sented his class on the Exercise

girls put much time and practice
into each performance of the Sil-
verettes, while others worked with
The big moment of the year for
the sophomore class was the re-

Se\en hundred and twenty-five
new faces were seen around North-

problems freshmen confronted. The
class of 72 was well represented by
four cheerleaders, members of
Cub Club and Student Council and
candidates for king and queen at the
stadium dedication game and the
Vanguard Variety Show.

The long vertical windows of NHS become a familiar sight to mem-

Entering school from the busses, freshmen view the vastness of the
high school's auditorium.
Viewing the school at night is a new experience to the fresh-
men when they return for evening activities.
To cross the mjll is an everyday experience in the daily routine of
getting to classes.

\\ l\DI\ IDL AL IS SOMEONE LEAVING
NORTHW EST FOR THE YEAR OF 1969
KNOW ING THAT AS AN INDIVIDUAL
HE IS PREPARED FOR THE COMING
Year of the Individua
seen from staff viewpoint
More than 2500 individuals com-
bine to form Northwest High
School, while only 12 form the
Vanguard editors. These individ-
uals were like other Pioneers be-
cause they attended classes and
ball games, did homework and
worked part-time jobs; but they
had the responsibility of recording
the accomplishments and activities
of all Northwest Pioneers for one
To record the information about
so many individuals, hours had to
be spent fact finding, copy writing,
and picture taking. A way to pre-
sent these facts in an organized
and attractive manner had to be
found. Books had to be sold, pages
had to be proofread, and details
had to be completed.
The result was the 1969 Van-
guard, a book by individuals, for
individuals, about individuals.
