Doors lead everywhere. We pass through
them toward destinies of achievement or
shun them in failure. We look back through
them in self-reflection and peer forth to-
ward unrealized goals.
Upon the entering of each portal, we are
confronted with yet another door. Knock-
ing and waiting will not secure entrance.
We must press relentlessly upon the door
until, with adept .application of opportunity
Let us now force open that door and
tread upon the threshold of achievement.

Remodeling At AHS
Thirteen years of steady work in the
Abilene Public School System has been
characteristic of Mr. E. L. Fiedler, Superin-
tendent of Schools. His leadership in this
position has been displayed in the many
advancements made in the entire system
during the year.
Heading the list of projects demanding
the attention of Superintendent Fiedler
during the 1967-68 school year was the
completion of converting the former voca-
tional area into eight new classrooms. A
great deal of this remodeling took place
during the summer vacation, leaving only
minor installations to be completed in the
early part of the school year.
Superintendent Fiedler was aided in his
various duties by the seven members of the
Board of Education. This governing body
met regularly on the first Monday of each
month to discuss various problems and to
make decisions concerning the six schools
in the district. Three competent secretaries
also aided Mr. Fiedler by keeping records
and carrying on correspondence work.

New Principal Fosters
AHS School Spirit
Opening assembly provided the student
body with its first opportunity to meet Mr.
Kenneth W. Brown, the new principal.
Principal Brown stated that he believed
Abilene High School one of the finest
schools in Kansas and, with the cooperation
of the faculty and the students, he intended
to keep it at its high standard.
One method by which he proposed to
accomplish this goal was steady improve-
ment rather than occasional leaps and
bounds. This plan was illustrated by the
story of a small boy who, by taking one step
at a time in the dark, was able to reach the
shed to fetch wood. He concluded, 'KI see
no reason why, with all of us working to-
gether, we can't--one, two, or three steps .at
a time--reach the woodshedly'
Accomplishments this year included
eight newly-remodeled classrooms, a larger
lan age lab, and a biology "growing

past academic year.

Books for everyone's needs, whether for
learning or enjoyment, were shelved in the
large library. Both the students and teach-
ers made good use of the books and other
material available to them in the depart-
ment. During the summer move than 300

and drama--was added.
Two well-trained guidance counselors
were available to students throughout the
school day for advice concerning college,
future vocations, testing results, or social
problems. These two men also taught the
freshman orientations classes as well as
supervised college and aptitude testing

Politics, And Projects,
A basic understanding of man, his ac-
tions, and the reason for these actions, both
current and past, is necessary in any soci-
ety. It was this understanding that was
strived toward in the social science depart-
ment of AHS. The realization of this nec-
essity was stressed by the requirement of
orientations, American History, American
government, and economics.
As freshmen, the orientation students
explored the many facets of our complex
environment and the most satisfactory
means of adapting to the constant prob-
lems and changes. Term papers concerning
vocational choices were completed in the
A more involved examination of the
hows and whys of personal behavior pat-
terns was offered in psychology. A high-
light of this course was the field trip to

Viewing the environment from a differ-
ent perspective were the courses of Amer-
ican government, economics, and world civ-
ilization. They developed, respectively, the
student's knowledge of the citizen's role in
the government of the United States on the
local, state, and national levelg basics of the
capitalistic system, and man's attempts in
organizing a political philosophy with em-
phasis on current international relations.
It has been said that the man who is
ignorant of history, is forever doomed to re-
peat its mistakes. Through the knowledge
provided in American History and world
history our pardon was granted.

Reading And Writing
Are English Essentials
English students refreshed their mem-
ories of descriptive paragraphs, parts of
speech, correct spelling, and theme writing
during the first semester grammar review.
Poetry, English and American literature,
and the techniques of good writing were
taken up in the spring semester. At least
six book reports were required of all classes.
Junior and senior students compiled re-
search papers .as an additional activity.
The senior honors course, world litera-
ture, was comprised of ai survey of ancient
and modern writing highlighted by critical
analysis of reading selections.
Fundamental skills in reading, .speak-
ing, and writing were emphasized in Basic

Throughout the first semester, the year-
book staff obtained an augmenting know-
ledge of the parts comprising a first-class
annual. Practical experience in planning,
writing, and bookkeeping was also gained.
Theory and practice of drama was made
available to interested students by the dra-
matics department. Proper procedures in

terizations, and pantomines were empha-
Using acquired knowledge of press-
styled writing, the journalism department
published an issue of the Booster every two
weeks. Advertising was stressed in the three
classes this year as ea-ch student became
responsible for the selling and Laying-out
of several ads.
Latin and Spanish, the foreign lan-
guages offered at AHS, coordinated exten-
sive study of vocabulary, sentence struc-
ture, translation, and dialogue. To aid in
the mastery of these languages, at laborato-
ry consisting of a variety of recordings in
Latin and .Spanish was made available to
the students. A feature of second year Latin
was the study of mythology and its influ-
-ence on our civilization.
Through the annual banquets, the
students were familiarized with the cus-
toms, style of dress, food, and other aspects
of the foreign cultures.

mand for scientific and mathematical
knowledge, the Abilene High School cur-
riculum included a variety of courses in
Provision of a firm foundation in the
study of natural phenomena was the pri-
mary purpose of general science classes. In
contrast to previous years, no text was
used. Chemistry students analyzed the
structure and composition of matter during
chemical reactions, while the principles of
conservation of mass, momentum, energy,
and charge were examined in physics.

Ten courses in business training were
offered to students by the business depart-
ment. These classes prepared students for
personal or family record-keeping and fu-
ture secretarial or management positions.
Personal typewriting, a semester course,
was offered to students with crowded sched-
ules to enable them to efficiently oper.ate a
typewriter for class homework.
Forty typewriters were available for
pupils enrolled in Typing I-II. After mas-
tering the touch of the keyboard, consider-
able time was given to the development of
speed and accuracy.
Operational techniques of the calcula-
tor, transcriber, adding machine, and elec-
tric typewriter were acquired in the office
practice class, while dictation and tran-
scription were stressed in the senior sec-
retarial tr.aining class.
Realization of the importance of keep-
ing better financial records was one of the
objectives of the personal bookkeeping
course. The development of neatness, ac-
curacy, and an understanding of the prob-
lems of a business enterprise was an inte-
gral part of the bookkeeping course.
Many phases of business life, including
money, banks, credit, wise-buying, and tax
problems, were discussed in general busi-
First semester of the shorthand course
was spent learning strokes and brief forms,
while dictation and transcription were em-
phasized during the second semester.
Both personal and business selling tech-
niques were practiced in the salesmanship
class. Drawing up contracts, buying and
selling goods, insurance, and property, as
well as history of law, were discussed in the
semester business law course.

Muscular tone and balance

in the physical education classes.
Fills Fitness Program
Vigorous activities in the forms of team
and individual sports, indoor games, obsta-
cle courses, and calisthenics helped to de-
velop able bodies in the physical education
courses. Required of all freshmen and soph-
omores, the ability to work with others was
emphasized. Improvement of the student's
physical, emotional,and mental health was
aided in the health classes by studying or-
ganic and functional diseases, and acquir-
ing an understanding of the basic struc-
tures and functions of the body.
Thirty hours of classroom instruction
and .at least six hours practice driving were
required of all driver training students. The
skillful techniques of operating an auto-
mobile with special emphasis on defensive
driving were taught by films, lectures, and
actual driving in the dual-controlled car.
Each of the seven areas of homemaking
were studied in three courses of Home Eco-
nomics. Clothing, foods, social maturity,
and consumer buying were emphasized in
the classes of Home Economics I-IV. Family
living, which served as preparation for fu-
ture domestic positions, included explora-
tion .of the purpose of family life, its place
in society, budgets, and interior decoration.
Construction, Crops, And
Cars Appeal To Students
Eleven courses of study were offered in
the vocational building. These ranged from
the areas of agriculture and farm manage-
ment to general shop and auto mechanics.
Basic Agriculture served as an introduc-
tion into crops, soils, record-keeping, weld-
ing, and livestock. 'Training in Technical
Agriculture included cereal crop produc-
tion, conservation, animal nutrition, and
weed control. Boys interested in occupa-
tions, such as carpentry, farming, and ma-
chinery construction repair, benefited from
Agriculture Mechanics. Senior boys who
were interested in farming occupations
found Farm Management worthwhile.
Two or more subjects, such as small
engines and sheet metal, were taught si-
multaneously in general shop. Safety and
knowledge of the use of hand and power
equipment was stressed in Industrial Arts
I-II, while the advanced students were al-
lowed to construct projects of their own
choosing. The basic theory of all automobile
components was applied to the students'
personal c.ar engines in Auto Mechanics.
Mechanical drawing instruction enabled
"Goggles everywhere!" might well be stated

The concert band's schedule was dom-
inated by early morning practices, trips
around the state, and home performances.
New routine steps learned at summer
camps highlighted the half-time drills.
Introduction of the visual arts was the
purpose of Art 1-2. This was accomplished
by the use of a workshop situation in which
the student learned art techniques by using
the many materials available to artists to-
day. Beginning students practiced the fund-
amentals of pencil sketching perspective
drawing, and design which became the
basis not only for what the students creat-
ed, but also for understanding the work of
Materials implemented by second and
third year students included: pencil, char-
coal, pen, watercolor, tempera, clay, leath-
er, and silver. Original creations were also
done in oil paints and .acrylics. The experi-
enced students were given much more free-
dom in the selection of a yearly project and
the materials and methods for the comple-
tion of the project.
Added features such as a trip to Wichita
to view egg tempera paintings broadened
the knowledge gained in this class.
Daily emphasis on technical quality is apparent in this
candid rehearsel photo of the mixed chorus.

Stuco Members Sponsor
Government of AHS was the respon.sibil-
ity of the Student Council. Officers and
carry-over members were elected in the
spring of the 1966-67 school year and the
remaining homeroom representatives were
chosen as school resumed in the fall.
In October, Stuco .sponsored the election
for Homecoming Queen and attendants. Ar-
rangements for the field festivities were
made in coordination with the PTA.
The annual Christmas assembly was
presented by the Student Council. An open-
ing prayer, reading of a passage from the
Bible, and thoughts on the Yule season
were presented by Stuco members and a
guest speaker. The assembly closed with
the singing of familiar Christmas carols.
One of the highlights of the .school year
came in the spring as the council sponsored
the student exchange program with Bell-
Through this program the two repre-
sentatives from each school helped to

of their respective communities.
Tea, Banquet, Services
The 1967-68 projects, banquets, meet-
ings, and teas highlighted the .activities of
the Abilene Y-Teen club. Throughout the
year this group of girls continued to pro-
mote good-will and to help others.
The first main event of the school year
was the mother-daughter covered dish din-
ner held jointly with the YWCA. This was
followed by the annual fall district meeting
which this year was hosted by Abilene.
Latter in the year, the World Fellowship

Hectic Plot In Hlnner Willy',
"Inner Willyn, a three-act comedy of a
teenage boy and his three domineering
aunts, was presented by the junior class on
March l and 2.
The plot, a take-off on the problem of
adult domination and how one teenager
"coped'l with it, began with Willoughby
Adams as a meek sixteen-year-old boy. As
he sub-consciously wished for more free-
dom, his resistance was made known to the
audience through the lines of .a character

The play progressed as this "Inner

Riotous happenings, such as when Willy

this ye.ar's varsity squad would remember
the certain times when things started look-
The hope and wish of every Cowboy was
to grab a win over arch-rival Chapman. The
dream almost met reality but fell short as
the Pokes gained a 12-12 tie with the Irish.
Junction City rolled into town with an
undefeated season and had yet to be sconed
against. The Cowboys came alive and
scored 13 points in the first-half while the
Bluejays were held scoreless. The tide turn-
ed during the second half, however, as the
Bluejays came out on top 20-13.
Despite the losing season, two players
made the All-League selection while three
others were awarded an Honorable Mention.
The Cowboys also led the league in pass re-
ceiving for the season. Two individual
players placed second in passing and pass
receiving to close out the season.

Teams To Finish 11-7
Quite a comeback over last year's re-
cord, with an uplift in school spirit, was
achieved by the varsity basketball squad as
they came out ll-7 for the season.
The players started the year off with a
bang as they defeated the high-rated Junc-
tion City Bluejays in the AHS gym. An
NCKL competitor, Concordia, was onc of
the Class A powers in the .state until it
traveled to Abilene and left with an 80-'74
Although arch rival Chapman handed
the Cowboys a 79-67 defeat on its home
court, the Pokcs turned the tables and
pleased the over-flowing crowd in the AHS
gym by walloping the Irish 62-48.
Traveling to Russell for the Mid-State
Tournament, the Cowboys brought home
the first-place trophy. Abilene was host to
the Class A regional tournament the first
week of March.

organizing have finally brought about a long-awaited
reality-the '68 Cowboy! However, without the coope-
ration of many persons this yearbook could not have been
published. My deep appreciation to Mr. Charles Lang,
Mr. Frank Wright, Mr. John Sayler of American Yearbook
Company for their qualified guidanceg Mr. Wayne Phil-
lips, Mr. Kelly Wright, and Mr. Bill Jeffcoat for their
photography work, Mr. C. E. Chapman and other em-

Class of 1968 Receive
Diplomas and Challenges
The largest graduating class in the his-
tory of Abilene High School, 134 members,
walked across the gymnasium stage to re-
ceive their diplomas Wednesday evening,
May 22, 1968.
Speakers for the two commencement
services were Rev. John M. Kellison, a
pastor from Wichita, and Richard F.
Hrdlicka, a Newton attorney. During his
graduation address, Mr. Hrdlicka told of his
escape from Communist Czechoslovakia in
1948 and how he attained full citizenship
after attending law school in Kansas.
The attentive graduates listened as he
told in a most unique way his experiences
while showing his mother the American
way of life, pointing out the numerous
items that we take for granted.
Following the ceremony, a reception was
held at the Abilene Country Club for seniors
and their families. "The Reasons Why"
provided music for dancing.
Hours of rehecrrsel are reflected by the accompaniment to the
songs and changes of scenes by the thirty-three piece orches-
Popular Musical Closes
Yearis Stage Productions
"My Fair Lady,' an adaptation from
George Bernard Shawls "Pygmalion,"' was
presented with beauty and finesse by the
music, drama, and art departments of AHS.
Mr. Gerald Laudermilk, Mr. Robert Haley,
and Mr. Duane Hagstrand directed this
popular musical which enjoyed the longest
run ever presented on Broadway. The ac-
tion takes place in an atmosphere ranging
from the cockney garb of a London street
scene to the majesty of an Embassy Ball.
Henry Higgins proposes a complete trans-
formation of Eliza Doolittle from rags to
his own "high society" way of life. After
days of tyrannical drilling he feels that
her speech is such that she will not betray
her cockney background at the most im-
portant social event of the year. When she
succeeds, he takes all the credit for himself.
Eliza, furious that she did not get the praise
she deserved, leaves him to revel in his own
glory. Only after she has gone does he
realize that she is more to him than merely
an experimental subject. Upon her return,
all is forgiven and they face a life of hap-
Typical of many scenes, Alfred P. Doolittle
and his buddies are kicked out of their favor-

Little Bit of Luck."

Upperclassmen Swing In
Annual Spring Fling
The social fling of the year, junior-senior
prom and banquet, was celebrated on a
clear spring evening amid a setting depict-
ing t'Up, Up, and Away."
A color scheme of blue and green was
featured. Clusters of balloons served as cen-
terpieces for the tables of four and the east
and west walls were covered with alternat-
ing stripes of two shades of each color. A-
bove them were three six-foot replicas of
balloon.s with baskets. At the south end of
the gym a tent-shaped canope formed a
ceiling under which the guests danced to
the music of t'Friar Tuck and the Monks."
Following the me.al of roast beef, Mrs.
lohn Zimmerman, a folk singer from
Salina, presented a short program which
also included the number, "Up, Up, and
Away" by the vocal ensemble.
