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- 
edge team. 

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, 
no Northwest.

Daydreaming occupies Tom Lamkin, senior, during study hall while Sandra Hall, senior, makes 
use of the Reader's Guide. 

During an early morning practice, Dennis 
Dooley, sophomore, plays in his sleep. 

Congested traffic problems are found daily 

outside the cafeteria.

Three arches open the way to afterschool 
activities for participants and observers. 

Peg De Krueyter, junior, contemplates a remark made at College Day while she attends the 
session about Purdue University. 

The privilege of eating first allows seniors to dispense of the insignificant task quickly and

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. 
Young people were caught in the 
bustle of a gala premiere, in the 
opening of a new economic cen- 
ter. Young citizens emerged as 
active participants in the expansion 
of Indianapolis business. 

When not working, necessities 
had to be dealt with — TV, tele- 
phone, food — and homework. Am- 
bitious Pioneers tackled private 
lessons varying from ballet to horse- 

After-school activities were not 
a waste of time. Not all knowledge 
could be book-learned. Activities 
made Pioneers well-rounded indi-

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- 
tion ceremonies. The Marching 
Pioneers presented a special animal 
halftime show. 

Awaiting the Pioneers are Diana Skinner, 
senior and Pat Contos, junior. 

Reigning are king and queen, Gary Cosgrove, 
senior, and Bev Owens, junior. 

Officially beginning the activities at stadium, 
the ROTC presents the flag. 


Thanks are given to stadium supporters by 
Mr. George Gale, vice-principal. 


As the stadium foundation is begun, Pioneers anxiously await for 
its completion and their first home game.

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 
with student life an active part of 
his life. 

Summer thoughts remain 
in minds of prom pairs 

The illusion of "A Summer Place" 
became a reality tor Suzie Huber 
and Chris Weldon as they reigned 
o\er the junior prom attended by 
250 juniors and their dates. They 
were crowned half way through 
the evening by last years royalty, 
Rosemary Lincoln and Doug Cass- 

A daisy-covered trellis opened 
to display a park with evergreens, 
trees, a fountain, and wrought iron 
furniture. Yellow and white daisies 

adorned the parkside. Inside, one 
wall was carefully decorated to re- 
semble the inside of the trellis. 
Crepe-covered vases and flowers 
brightened each junior couple's 
table at their "Summer Place." 

Completing the court were prin- 
cesses Diane Hanft, Suzie Hunt, 
Bonnie James, and Becky Thomp- 
son, and princes Nick Boring, Steve 
Dotlich, Ronnie Hedges, and Bill

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. 

Discussing activities at Boys' and Girls' States 
are seniors Jim Shearer, Kate Griffin and 
Martin Landreth. 

Demonstrating new precision yells learned at Vincennes University cheerleading camp are 
Vickie Jordon, Teddy Swain, Debbie Atkinson, Diane Skinner, Terri Leonard, ]anis Alsager, and

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. 

Times of scrimping and saving 
were over. Everyone's main worry 
was to get the results of their 
penny-pinching wrapped up in the

the season. A very few made plans 
for last minute shopping details, 
and despite the fact that it was 'a 
very few' the stores were flooded. 
Several special concerts were 
presented by the music depart- 
ment. Besides the annual Christmas 
assembly in which all groups par- 
ticipated, the choir sang carols on 
the Circle and the Belles travelled 
to Nashville, Indiana to sing for 
the Lions Club. Both filmed a tele- 
vision concert.

Queen, crowned her successor. 

Pioneer victory over Arlington 
made January 14, 1969 a perfect 
Homecoming night. 

Five senior queen candidates 
were nominated by the senior class, 
but the queen was chosen by an 
all school election. Princesses Kate 
Griffin, Dianne Hanft, Suzie Hunt, 
and Becky Thompson and their es- 
corts completed the royal court. 
Dianne Hanft was in charge of all 
Homecoming festivities. To top the

Various talents blossom in 
first Vanguard Varieties 

Reigning over Vanguard Variety festivities 
are newly crowned King Brent Junkins and 
Queen Kate Griffin, seniors. 

Northwest pupils excel other 
than in the classroom, in athletics 
or in extra-curricular organizations. 
This was clearly demonstrated by 
60 talented Pioneers who were spot- 
lighted in the "Vanguard Varieties," 
student variety show presented for 
the first time, January 10, in the au- 

An appreciative audience ap- 
plauded 13 "V Squared" acts fea- 
turing folk and pop singers, 
dancers, pianists, and skits by the 
junior and senior girls. Introducing 
the acts were Tim Campbell, junior, 

and Suzie Huber, senior, who were 
master and mistress-of-ceremonies. 

Highlighting the evening was 
the crowning of the yearbook king 
and queen, Brent Junkins and Kate 
Griffin of the senior class, during 
the intermission. They were 
crowned by Jim Reed, senior, and

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. 

Four children from grade schools 
sang and acted in the musical; they 
already knew most of the songs be- 
fore rehearsals even started. During 
one song, the children, acting like 
the hands of a clock, got to hit each 
other on the head. "They got a big 
kick out of that," Sandy remem-

ferent costumes, mothers, grand- 
mothers, and aunts rated sewing

An individual at Northwest 
spends most of his time in academ- 
ic pursuits. He takes required 
courses such as biology or econom- 
ics, but he also spends much of his 
time specializing in his favorite 
field. Perhaps he likes math and so 

he may take calculus or computer 
math. Perhaps she likes business 
and will take shorthand and clerical 
practice. No matter what he likes, 
an individual at Northwest receives 
a well-rounded education from a 
well-qualified faculty. 

A place for study and research is the ser- 
vice the NHS library offers.

Personal accomplishment 
stressed in science courses 

From dissecting a fetal pig to 
stuck ing reaction rates of the ele- 
ments, science department courses 
offered practical knowledge as well 
as variance in uncommon general 
know ledge. 

Enrollment increased by 200 
to 1,510 this year. Because the 
science department was one of 
the largest in the school, expanding 
the science classes to the old math 
wing was necessary to accommo- 
date the growing number of en- 

Research and careful observation 

were stressed in experimentation. 
One pupil received $100 from the 
Heart Fund on his research proj- 
ect. An accurate account of every 
satellite launched by America and 
Russia was another project record- 
ed by a science-minded Pioneer. 

For the first time, four NHS stu- 
dents enrolled in the Science 
Seminar, an organization which 
meets Saturday mornings to enable 
pupils from various high schools to 
attend lectures covering the science 
field in depth. 

Biology teacher Mrs. Leigh Richie points out new fish acquired by the science department to 

her pupils, Bob Gushree and Rexanne Coleman, sophomores. 


Linda Montgomery, junior, measures zinc 
as the first step of an experiment. 


Terry Boring and Gail Fisher, juniors, prove 
teamwork pays off during experiments.

it all figures out here

Mrs. Wilcox, discuss teaching methods. 

Find the distance represented 
by the area between the two curves 
y = sin x and y = cos 3x. Impossi- 
ble? Not to students who took ana- 
lytic geometry and calculus. This ad- 
vanced course was offered to sen- 
iors who had taken Geometry I & 
II and Algebra III & IV in their 
sophomore year. 

Computer math, a unique course 
at Northwest, was again offered. 
Beginning in the fall sophomores 
with special permission could also 
take the course previously offered 

to juniors and seniors only. 

Seniors Alan Shirley and Bruce 
Shelley conducted a Science Sem- 
inar session at I.U. Medical Center 
demonstrating how to solve prob-

and seniors took part in a national 
mathematics contest conducted by 
the Mathematical Association of 
America and the Society of Actuar- 

Reducing a fraction by first factoring isn't difficult to Scott Swanson, sophomore, who explains it 
to the class on the blackboard. 


Study of history is more 
than past, present events 

Approximately 1544 pupils en- 
rolled in one of the 10 courses 
offered by Northwest's social stud- 
• 5 department. Thirteen teachers, 
including five new to the Northwest 
faculty, taught courses such as in- 
ternational relations, world geog- 
raphy, and Indiana history. Latin 
American civilization was offered 
again as more pupils took an in- 
terest in world affairs. Though 
pupils were required to take U.S. 
History, government, and econom- 
ics, many enrolled in these elective 

' SAark \uthall finds his pupils interested 
in the national government. 

Because of the national elections 
there was no mock election. In- 
stead, classes debated and discussed 
each national candidate and many 
state and local candidates in prep- 
aration for a school election. Elec- 
tion day Northwest students, like 
the nation, voted Republican, elect- 
ing Mr. Nixon as President of the 
United States of America. 

Seniors ranking in the upper 25% 
of their class were eligible to com- 
pete for $1500 in scholarships, 
awarded by the Lilly Foundation. 

Mr. Ralph Horn, department head, scans 
the abundance of work on his desk. 

Arleen Bolton and Eddie Koehl argue an important issue against Janet Wiseman and Bill Mc- 
Kinley in a debate over current events in social problems. 


Pupils turn to counselors 
for help with future plans 

"The guidance department is a 
service intended for the students 
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. 

Mr. Richard O'Brien helps counsel Polly Hallaghan, junior, with her class schedule for 
her fourth and final year at Northwest. 

Mr. Larry Apt forecasts events to come for 
freshman in an orientation ( lass. 


Physical fitness is integra 
part of daily school life 

Since physical fitness is an im- 
portant basis for life, the physical 
education department at Northwest 
promotes healthy outlets for NHS 

•Ml Pioneers are required to par- 
ticipate in at least two semesters 
of gvm; however, further training 
is offered. Advanced P.E. can build 
greater physical skills as well as 
providing a chance to assist under- 
classmen. Two gym assistants help 
supervise the eight classes with 
40 — 44 pupils. Silverettes and one 

advance class with 26 pupils each 
are branchs of Girls' P.E. 

Activities are planned with many 
purposes in thought — their value, 
usefulness, and simple enjoyment 
in recreation such as tennis and 
ping-pong. Also for the more ad- 
vanced student there is the ap- 
paratus equipment consisting of 
parallel bars, horses and high bar. 
All of this equipment takes many 
hours of practice for the advanced 

Sophomore Mike Cook demonstrates a new 
way of walking in advanced gym. 

Basketball is an important part of freshman 
Mike Owen's physical training. 

As the number of semesters increase, so does the difficulty of the stunts. Agile junior Mike 
Lynn performs on the rings. 


Senior Nancy Huisman shows Vicki Ander- 
son and Stephanie Bastin, juniors, how to 
operate the lab machines. 

Language studies expand 
with addition of German 

New to the foreign language 
department was the "total method" 
of teaching. Mr. David Banks, new 
French teacher, spoke to his stu- 
dents in French at all times — even 
after school. In class conversations 
were only allowed in French, too. 

About 800 Pioneers were en- 
rolled in German, a new course, 
French, Latin, or Spanish. New 
tapes came with new textbooks. 
By using recorders and ear phones, 
students could practice more drills 
and vocabulary. 

Several honors were offered to 
deserving young linguists. An I.U. 

Honors Program and a one-week 
Latin Summer Institution took the 
student from classroom teaching to 
practical everyday use of the for- 
eign language. Living and studying 
the "total method" for the summer 
in countries such as Mexico and 
Italy benefited not only language 
perfection, but foreign relation 
as well. 

Awards given on Awards Day at 
NHS included the best student in 
all four languages and announce- 
ments of the I.U. Honors Program 
winners in state language contests. 


Mr. David Banks employs the total method 
by speaking only French to his classes. 

Proper pronunciation is being learned by Gary Cosgrove and Bill Humphrey, seniors, who lis- 
ten to a playback of their own recordings. 


Computing a long list of figures is Jim 
Crosle\ , senior, in machine calculation. 

Senior Susie Huber has Diane Buchanan help tie her hair back for advanced secretarial prac- 
tice to conform to class rules. 

Miss Marguerite Lamar assists Paul Hankins, 
senior, on the adding machine. 


Pupils prepare for future 
with new business study 

Miss Diane Hibbeln points out the lesson 
to Ann McColough, her student teacher. 

Although strikeovers, correct 
copy, transcription notes, and 
debits and credits threatened, 
hundreds of Pioneers learned skills 
applicable in college, personal life, 
or any private business in the busi- 
ness education department. Varied 
courses from typing, to consumer 
business education attracted 1,493 

Two new one-semester, full- 
credit classes, merchandising and 
introduction to data processing, 
re-emphasized the diversity and 
specialization of Northwest's busi- 

ness curriculum. 

Added equipment benefited 
machine calculating classes: new

Practical studies prepare 
individuals for adult roles 

Home economics and industrial 
arts prepare the Northwest Pioneer 
with useful skills which will be 
helpful in a career or in home 

Industrial arts includes courses in 
metal, electrical, drafting, and 
woodshops. Shop classes instruct 
bovs in the intricacies of mechan- 
ical work. In general, pupils work 
on actual projects such as con- 
structing ticket boxes, printing 
programs, and office forms. Radio 
and television repairs introduced 
the world of electronics to Pioneers 
enrolled in electrical shop. 

Courses for prospective home- 
makers are offered in home eco- 
nomics. Careful planning of meals 
is an ingredient of a nourishing 
diet. Patience is emphasized in 
sewing fabrics for clothing projects. 
Understanding the pattern of fam- 
ilv living and modern trends in the 
home were the main topics in the 
subject of family relations.

Fulfilling individual talents 
is goal of cultural studies 

Encouraging creativity and in- 
dividual expression was the job of 
the Art and Music Departments. 

Under the direction of art de- 
partment head, Joe Reynolds, the 
Pioneer artists provided honors 
for themselves and a wealth of 
decorative displays. 

Art students created original 
items from rugs to jewelry. General 
techniques of art were learned in 
Arts 1-8 while other arts courses 
specialized in certain areas. Com- 
mercial art classes stressed adver- 

tisement layout while pupils in 
lettering and jewelry learned the 
techniques in their field. 

Meanwhile, Pioneer musicians 
developed their talents under Mr. 
Darrel Horton, music department 
head. Besides the usual band, or- 
chestra, and chorus classes, North- 
west had several unique courses. 
These included Dance Band and 
Swing Choir. Courses in music 
theory and appreciation were also 
taught to enable Pioneers to ob- 
tain a minor in music.

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 
March 8. The cafeteria dance had 
as its theme "Rainbows in Heaven." 
The queen was crowned from 
among the six sponsors.

Netmen seize city fifth;

For spring 1968, the Northwest 
tennis team compiled a season rec- 
ord of 7 — 10. Standing out among 
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.

Pioneers highlight grid 
season with new stadium 

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 
the 22 starting offensive and de- 
fensive positions being filled by 
seniors. Underclassmen gained 
valuable experience in filling the 
spots on coach Bruce Hamman's 

The Pioneers opened the grid- 
iron campaign with a 20 — loss to 
Broad Ripple's Rockets. The Space 
Pioneers then proceeded to lose 
four more in a row, matching the 
school's longest losing streak in its 
six-year history. 

The Pioneer reserve squad 
posted a 2 — 7 record. Their victories 
were over Chatard and Southport.

■\ winning season is getting to be 
a tradition with Coach Vern Mc- 
Carthys cross-country team. The 
1968 season was a clean sweep on 
all levels. The varsity record was an 
unprecedented 10 — 0. The reserve's 
record of 6 — — 1 was marred only 
b\ a tie with Speedway. Lastly, the 
freshmen battled to a 3 — 1 record 
placing second in the city. 

Junior Bill Hicks paced the varsity 
team as he lead Northwest to a sec- 
ond in the city, a third in the sec- 
tional, and a seventh in the regional. 
Hicks himself was city champion. 

At the reserve level, the second 
string also took a second in the city. 
Tom Mahler and Ron Selby paced 
the team and are expected to shine 
on the 1969 varsity team.

with high hopes and, although the 
tough teams were played early in 
the season, these hopes were ful- 

Two underclassmen formed the 
nucleus of the team. Louis Burns 
and Mendel Smith were responsi- 

ble for more than one victory. 
Illness plagued the Pioneers. Dave 
McClellen and Ted Young were 
hindered. As the season progressed, 
the senior players declined as the 
newer players improved. For next 
season, Coach Bill Ritter predicted 
that "if the boys give a good sum- 
mer effort, we should be one of 
the toughest teams in the area."

Wrestling coach molds 
team into city challenger 

\\ restling had a new coach and a 
\oung. fresh team in 1969. Coach 
Richard Cummings faced a \ar>it\ 
team with six sophomores on it. 
Howe\er. he guided them to a 
6 — 6 — record. 

Coach Cummings' secret was 
practice, practice and mor.e practice. 
Hi> practices were both demanding 
and time-consuming. He figured 
409.013 hours of practice for the 
\arsit\ and reserve teams bv all the 
boys together. The reserves finished 
with a " -5 record. The frosh did 
e\en better with an 8 — 2 season. 

Cummings will be losing Steve 

Dotlich, 154-pounder who battled 
to third place in the state wrestling 
meet. He also set three varsity rec- 
ords during the season — 20 take- 
downs, 6 predicaments and 6 falls. 

Other winning seniors who will 
be departing are John Doll, 133 
pounds, and Denny Allison, 120 

Next year, Cummings hopes to 
have a stronger dual meet team al- 
though he realizes he will have 
fewer strong individual competitors. 

Underclassmen who gained re- 
serve experience are expected to 
help the team. 

Senior Steve Dotlich is the team's outstand-

gional titles.

Activities at Northwest are a 
means for Pioneers to express them- 
selves as individuals. Those who en- 
joy chess or checkers express them- 
selves in daily matches. Those who 
are fascinated by computers spend 
hours writing programs. Others join 
the FTA or Red Cross Club to pre- 

pare for future careers. Many 
Pioneers join language clubs, history 
club, or science club in order to ex- 
plore further their favorite subject. 
The wide-range of activities offered 
at Northwest gives Pioneers an op- 
portunity to explore their individual 

Band receives first rating 
in ISMA marching contest 

Entertaining at football games was 
major activity of the 117-mem- 

bei Marching Pioneer Band, but 
most important was the advance- 
ment of musical knowledge and ap- 
preciation. Directed b\ Mr. Darrell 
Horton. the band was one of four 
from Indiana to give a marching 
demonstration for the Indiana 
Bandmasters Association. Thev pre- 
sented a halftime show at Butler 
University, received a first place in 
the ISMA Marching contest, 
marched in the Veterans' Day Pa- 
rade, and presented Christmas and 

spring concerts. 

Eight majorettes and 31 Silver- 
ettes, directed by Mrs. Alice Hauss, 
supplemented the band with eye- 
catching routines. Dressed in 
glittering silver and green outfits, 
two feature twirlers added a new, 
exciting beat in the tempo of the 
Marching Pioneers. 

Dedicated orchestra members 
worked to become part of the all- 
city and all-state orchestras besides 
winning individual honors in 
state music competition. 

Drum major, Gary Stewart, signals the band 
to begin the halftime performance.

School choral groups extend 
talents in many directions 

Not only students, but community 
members as well were harmoniously 
serenaded by Northwest's choral 

By purchasing one family ticket, 
all family members were admitted 
to four specific concerts to enjoy 
such talent as the 70-voice strong 
Concert Choir. 

Casually attired, Swing Choir 
or the "Singin' Pioneers" enthused 
audiences at the Hobby Show, First 
Baptist Church, and Holiday Inn 
with their free-style, "sing-out" 
numbers. Concert Choir and 
Swing Choir performed their 

first campus concert for Indiana 
Central College. Candy sales money 
was used to buy green and white 
blazers for traveling concert ap-

emerald formals, coordinated

Honor leaders encourage 
service and scholarship 

Leadership, scholarship, service, 
and character summed up a por- 
trayal of 46 National Honor Society 
students. Creating an enthusiasm 
tor scholarship, stimulating a desire 
tor rendering service, and encourag- 
ing character development in 
Northwest pupils were the goals of 

Donating their own study time, 
several NHS members tutored 
classmates during study halls. Usher- 
ing for various auditorium programs 
and sponsoring a post-game dance 
were two annual activities. 

In April, a tapping ceremony 
marked the first step towards the 
initiation of new members. Main- 
taining at least a B-plus average, 
ranking in the top ten percent of 
the junior class or fifteen per cent 
of the senior class, being involved 
in Northwest activities, and showing 
good character were minimum 
requirements for membership. 

Officers were Kate Griffin, presi- 
dent; Dean Bennett, vice-president; 
Karen Slaughterback, secretary, and 
Dean Kimsey, treasurer.

Student council encourages 
participation in activities 

Sponsoring money-raising pro- 
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- 
ing and the holiday Christmas deco- 
rations. Student Council tried to 
interest more Pioneers in school 
activities, to improve conditions of 
Northwest, and to promote a 
healthy student-faculty relationship.

Vanguard editors adjust to 
yearbook's new 1969 look 

\ anguard 1969 sported a new look 
inside and out. A cover designed 
by Sharon Pottgeiser, junior, and 
contrasting colored paper in the 
opening section were a part of this 
new look. 

By signing with the American 
Yearbook Company, Vanguard 
switched from letterpress to offset 
printing. This change caused the 
bulk of the staff's problems. One 
of the new adjustments included 
sending entirely completed pages 
instead of a group of pictures or

son drew the layout; photo editor

Thirty young journalists under- 
took the vast challenge of inform- 
ing and entertaining some 2,500 
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 
School Publications Association.

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

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- 
licity committees. 

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.

Thirty scientifically inclined Pio- 
neers found field trips, guest 
speakers, movies, and lectures all 
provided by Science Club. Not 
only did members gain more knowl- 
edge of science, they also learned 
to observe the application of sci- 
ence in the Northwest community, 
to give service to that community, 
and to devote time to individual 
science projects. 

Field trips included visits to den- 
tal laboratories at the I.U. Medical 
Center, Allison's Powerama, State 
Police Crime Laboratory, Butler Ob- 
servatory, and a trip to Sullivan 

Dr. Ray Oshiro of the I.U. School 
of Dentistry and a doctor from the 

Purdue Psychology Department 
guest-lectured at club meetings. 
Science Club itself sponsored a 
lecture at the Children's Museum 
March 1. Freshman Jim Wetzel, 
who won a $100 grant from the 
Marion County Heart Association 
with his project on sun spots, pre- 
sented the lecture on "Solar Analy- 

Two movies, "Air Pollution" and 
"Scientific Method for Experi-

young, struggling republic — 15 Pi- 
oneers researched, debated, and 
reviewed historical and cultural 
movements, past and present. To 
better understand the various peo- 
ples and cultures of the world, mem- 
bers placed many field trips and 
guest speakers on their History 
Club agenda. 

Through trips to Conner Prairie 
Farms, the new downtown State 
Museum, World War II Memorial, 

Benjamin Harrison Home, and John 
Herron Art Museum, members wit- 
nessed not only visible ancient rel- 
ics, but learned the silent stories 
behind them — the intangible "her- 
itage" of civilizations long past. 

Mrs. Ruth Colon, language teach- 
er, visited the club to speak on 
Puerto Rico's history and social 
developments. Other activities in- 
cluded a slide presentation of

Colon, club sponsor, and her pupils, who 
share an interest in foreign culture. 

Any number of languages could 
be heard just by walking through 
the foreign language department 
after school. Four clubs were or- 
ganized to acquaint students with 
the culture of French, German, and 
Spanish people and studies of the 
Romans. Clubs used songs, dances, 
skits, games, and guest speakers — 
teaching media not available during 
class time — to help young linguists 
learn more outside the classroom. 

French Club visited the John Her- 
ron exhibit of French sculpture. 
German Club, the newest at North- 

oms of other 
four clubs 

west, had slide presentations and 
projects to promote German and 
its interest among students. While 
Latin Club members feasted at an

Club members investigate 
outlook of business jobs 

Business Activities Club took an 
acti\e look at the many business 
professions. A program, "A Career 
That Counts," was presented by a 
representative of the Victor Better 
Business Bureau. 

For practical knowledge and for 
a realistic view of an actual work- 
ing da\, club members visited a 
local business and listened to var- 
ious guest speakers. Guest speakers 
from local businesses included 
representatives from Indiana Bell 
Telephone, Merle Norman Cos- 

metics, and the Data Processing 

Business Activities set three main 
goals for its members. Members 
were to share a common interest 
in business, to learn more about 
opportunities presented by busi- 
ness, and to further prepare for 
business careers. President Sherry 
Van Zandt, vice-president Karen 
Dolan, and secretary Dianna Shear- 
er planned business club programs 
and activities to achieve these three

Math enthusiasts find fun 
in working with computers 

In the age of automation, when 
an electronic computer can pro- 
cess data in a matter of seconds, 
the new Computer Math Club re- 
served a time for young mathe- 
maticians to meet, discuss program 
writing and exchange ideas. Al- 
though a computer could do two 
weeks work in seconds, it could 
only do what was instructed on the 
program sheet. Since computer 
math was one of the most advanced 
math courses, those interested and 

unable to enroll found that the 
club offered them a chance to learn 
the basics of program writing. 

Club members had programs 
key-punched and processed week- 
ly in a computer. Through field 
trips to Indiana Central, some mem- 
bers experienced first-hand the 
skills of key-punching and com- 
puter operation. Visits to other 
computer laboratories, guest speak- 
ers and movies spiced club meet-

Smile! Candid Camera focuses 
again! Perhaps Candid Camera, 
HolKwood style, was not available, 
but tor 15 Audio-Visual Club mem- 
bers, projectors, films, slides, and 
filmstrips proved to be merely a 
portion of the growing modern 
visual aid capacitv offered to pupils 
of Northwest High School. 

Under the direction of Mr. Nor- 
man Tripp, the new Audio-Visual 

Club video-taped the Christmas 
program, speech club plays, and 
basketball games. Members even 
managed to capture on tape the 
formaldehyde world of biology, 
from dissections of fetal pigs to 
observations of microscope con- 

Club members and equipment 
were available any time to video- 
tape activities upon request. 

Mark Evans, Janice Ferrell and John Heffley

Concentration necessary t 
keep check on club mates 

junior George Mathews contemplates his 
chess opponents' next move. 

From the lowly pawn to the state- 
ly King, from the sliding rook to 
the versatile Queen, Chess and 
Checkers Club members learned 
the rules and skills of two games in- 
volving intelligence, patience, and 

Thirty Pioneers practiced maneu- 
vering rooks, archbishops, knights, 
and the valuable Queen, able to 
move in all directions, to perfect 
their methods of play. Anticipating 
their opponents' moves, players de- 

signed plans to capture oppo- 
nents' pieces and, ultimately, check- 
mate the opposing King. 

After trying to double and triple 
jump each other to capture as many 
checkers as possible, players bat- 
tled for victory with kings made of 
double checkers. 

To highlight the year, Chess and 
Checker Club contestants entered 
the City Tourney and the State 
Tournament at North Central High

The individuals composing 
Northwest are many different 
things. They are teachers and they 
are pupils. They are seniors, jun- 
iors, sophomores, and freshmen. 
They are football players and they 
are debaters. They are class leaders 

ALBUM.. . 

and they are classmates. They are 
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.

Administration, faculty 
join for better education 

Keeping a 2,500 plus education 
center running smoothly, <\n im- 
mense job, was handled by the ad- 
ministrative staff. Headed by 
principal Kenneth M. Smartz, the 
staff was composed of Mr. George 
N. Gale, vice-principal in charge 
of building and finances; Mr. Har- 
old M. Crawford, vice-principal 
in charge of teachers and personnel; 
Mr. Richard Cummins, guidance 
director and senior counselor; and 
Mrs. Constance Zimlich and Mr. 
Paul Heaton, deans. 

Certified teachers at Northwest 
numbered 124; approximately 
eighty per cent of them had mas-

ter's degrees. As enrollment in- 
creased, 36 new teachers helped 
balance the student-teacher ratio. 
The federal government's integra- 
tion program brought ten of the 
new 36 as transfers from inner-city 
schools in exchange for Northwest 

Besides teaching, faculty advised 
students with social or academic 
problems. Faculty-sponsored events 
included the teacher talent show, 
a faculty picnic in the fall, and a 
faculty dinner in the spring. Fac- 
ulty members also frequently chap- 
eroned after school events for 
NHS pupils.

"A Time to Remember" signified 
mam things to the graduating sen- 
iors of 1969. Their four years at 
Northwest brought many honors 
to individuals as well as to the 

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, 
thes were the first class to graduate 
in the NHSstadium. 

The senior gift this year was a 
much-needed ticket booth for the 
stadium. Selecting the class tree is 
a tradition at Northwest; the tulip 
tree was chosen for the class of 

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

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 
were taken. 

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."

Sophomores' class rings 
give feeling of belonging 

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

well represented on varsity and re- 
serve teams in football, basketball 
and wrestling, besides having four 
girls leading cheers for the re- 
serve squad. A sophomore repre- 
sented his class on the Exercise 
in Knowledge team. Also, several 
girls put much time and practice 
into each performance of the Sil- 
verettes, while others worked with 
the band. 

The big moment of the year for 
the sophomore class was the re- 
ceiving of class rings.

Sophomores eagerly rush through 
the serving line daily in the cafe- 

Freshmen open door to 
new way of living at NHS 

Se\en hundred and twenty-five 
new faces were seen around North- 
west this past year. Lockers, home 
room periods and all-school assem- 
blies presented just a few of the 
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 world of sports, drama and 
music are just a few of the interests 
which became a part of every fresh- 
man's life, involving him in the ways 
of NHS. 

Three years await these young 
people and they will be the ones 
who will benefit from Northwest 
and make it better for years to 

A new experience to freshmen is not only 
lunching in the cafeteria, but budgeting for 
it, too. 

jim Wetzel represents his class on the Exer- 
cise in Knowledge team as the only fresh- 
man member.

'"""'" — 

The long vertical windows of NHS become a familiar sight to mem- 
bers of the new freshman class. 

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.

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.
