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 it opens. Let us now force open that door and tread upon the threshold of achievement. Q . f 5 .M E W ......, 5 I .,..... I .,. ---H l ...

I X in Superintendent Plans 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. i w, F Wm .fa Fiedlerw BS., MS., CK.S.U.D criniendent ci Public Schools Board of Education members pause while TTQCISUTGTI WGYH9 GUQHQT, l3Ff3'SiCl9Ul E L Cgmplgfmq fgmgdeling plgmg fgf ihg high Fiedler, superintendent Mcrurine Carl Vice school.

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 ste.ady improvement of the school in the Lf ' which were key advances in the past academic year.

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 new books were classified and made ready for use in addition to the original 6000 volumes. Reference books, periodicals, film strips, clippings, and pamphlets were used exten- sively by students in their daily search for knowledge. During the year a new dimension--a re- cord collection of classical music, poetry, 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 programs. Library assistant Darlene Facklam shelves one of the SO magazine issues received monthly by the department. "hug s 1 Politics, And Projects, Highlight Courses 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 spring. 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 the State Mental Hospital at Topeka to ob- serve the methods used in treating the mentally ill. 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. Stockbrokers' commissions are explored 'by economics students, Barbara Wade, Tina Morqenson, and Steve Atkinson. Margaret Minner. B, A., lMuskingum Col., Ohiol, Social Science Earl D.

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 English. Techniques in public speaking were practiced in the speech class, while re- search and actual tournament competition dominated the activities of the debate squad. Griginal prose and poetry of Abilene High .students were published in the Non Pareil, a collection compiled by the Creative Writing class. "Quad Ia la" announces Dave Burris as he recites the prologue to "Came - bury' TCIl9SH for the world literature class. Literature, Lab, Vital To Any Language 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 lighting, sound effects, make-up, charac- terizations, and pantomines were empha- sized. 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. W M fn. A ,1 4 -11 Robert D.

Cl ss, Foot- lflfsifii QIFT-3-751 Equations, Urganisms Offer Challenges Striving to meet today's challenging de- mand for scientific and mathematical knowledge, the Abilene High School cur- riculum included a variety of courses in these fields. 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. A new greenhouse area proved a bene- ficial addition to the biology department. Both biology and advanced biology furnish- ed the students with a better understand- ing of the patterns of life and the living organisms. Basic mathematical fundamentals of percents, equations, and ratios were stress- ed in general math and Algebra I-II. Learn- ing to prove theorums w.as an integral part of geometry, while Algebra 3-4 students ex- perimented with ratios and quadratic qua- tions. The graphing of curved lines and the study of the properties of angles and tri- angles vvas prevalent in the senior courses of college algebra and trigonometry. Im-nes R.

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- ness. 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. 3? Lucretia Butts. B.S., fK. S.

Instruction, Activity 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 at -2 ,QB rlii fr.

Q . E Fine Arts Contribute To Culture At AHS Two choruses, girls' glee club, and the ensemble formed the core of the vocal mu- sic department. Achievement of better tone and greater proficiency in reading music were the main objectives of these three groups. 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 others. 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. a -J I 16 .ss,m 3-fsv41L... 74 .L., yiv T i s f i i , i y ' L E f i i' it ' W 1 Z a CAFETERIA STAFF-Mildred Walker, Lois Collins, La- fUg2PIA1XS'1jO9SC32'CfgeS' Verna Guqler, lean Noel, Thelma Howard, chief dieti- er O er' rc 19 u ' tiang Phyllis McKee, Alberta Davis. Duties Include Carting, Cleaning, Cooking Cleaning up after the students at the day's end was done efficiently by the two janitors and the one night janitor. Wash- ing windows, mowing the lawn, polishing desks, and sweeping halls headed their work list. Eight cooks were in charge of keeping the student body well-fed. The cooking staff worked from 7:30 a.m. through the afternoon hours each day preparing well- balanced and appetizing meals for the 650 students and faculty members. To deliver students safely as well as ef- ficiently to their destinations was the goal of the bus drivers of the school district. These eight men were also responsible for keeping the vehicles in excellent running order as well as transporting .students to extra-curricula activities.

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- ingham, Washington. Through this program the two repre- sentatives from each school helped to broaden the knowledge and understanding of their respective communities. Tea, Banquet, Services Encourage Fellowship 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 Banquet was held for the first time in the school cafeteria. Foreign costumes and food were representative of the other coun- tries where Y-Teen organizations have been established. Entertaining skits and spirited carols set the mood for the Christmas mother- daughter tea. Secret Sister Week, centering around Valentines Day, continued the tradition of each girl having a .secret sister to whom she gave presents and notes. The week ended with a party, with each girl discovering the identity of her secret sister. In addition to the many social events, each committee of Y-Teens had a special service project, through which the members encouraged fellowship with others. Pizza. chow mein. and tamales were among the foreign dishes served at the Y-Teen World Fel- lowship Banquet.

Much valuable speaking experience and knowledge of the topic was gained as the AHS debaters traveled to twenty-three tour- naments in all parts of Kansas. .Sixty teams from twenty schools partic- ipated in Abilene's fifth annual invitational debate tournament held December lst and 2nd. Due to the combined efforts of de- baters, faculty, and citizens, the tourna- ment was a success.

The theme of this year's an- nual, "Doors Lead Everywheren, was both obvious and subtle from the cover through- out the entire book. On Wednesday, September 13, a year- book clinic for area schools was held to help .staff members learn the fundamentals of a successful annual publication. Also aiding the staff in gaining background material for picture and copy production were C. J. Medlin textbook and annuals of other schools. Three classes of hard-working jourr il- ism students strived for a top rating "Booster", the biweekly school newspaper. The first and second hours were offered to novice journalists, while third hour was re- served for the advanced journalism stu- dents. u Every Wednesday on the radio, a jour- nalism student told of current AHS events, or interviewed a teacher with questions per- taining to his department. This not only helped to inform the public of school activ- ities, but also gave the staff members ex- perience in the field of broadcasting.

For the first time in the contestls history, the victoriou.s candidate mounted a live horse following the ceremony. Allen was presented a plaque and the traditional kiss by Lynn Engle, yearbook editor. Both he and his manager, Jim Owens were given orange and brown ban- ners declaring them "Cowboy Joe" and "Manager" of the 1968 campaign. The five contenders for "Cowboy Joe" were nominated by the senior class on the basis of their leadership, scholarship, and athletic ability. Each candidate chose a campaign manager who worked for three days on constructing posters, speeches, and skits in order to capture votes. This campaign has been used each year to honor a deserving senior boy, and as a .sales promotion for yearbooks. Those de- siring to vote for the candidate of their choice were required to purchase a '68 Cow- boy. COWBOY IOE MANAGERS--Top Row: Dave Burris, Doug Gugler, lim Owens, Dan Evers, Stan Martin.

One murder committed before the first curtain and another during the first act created suspense, suggested the supernatural, and aroused suspicion of the characters. As the play opened Helen O'Neill and Will Crosby announced their engagement to a party of friends at the Crosby home. During the party, the conversation turned to the recent murder of Spencer Lee. A medium, invited to entertain the guests, held a seance to solve the murder my.stery. During the seance, Edward Wales was also murdered. The police were as baffled at the mystery as the guests. .Suspicion fell on Helen and, as excitement heightened, each guest attempted to prove his inno- cence. A second seance brought the play to an exciting climax as the true murderer was revealed. 44 Montgomery.

HGeneration Gapn Creates 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 representing the 1ead's inner self. The play progressed as this "Inner Willy" advised Willy of moves to make. Riotous happenings, such as when Willy finds himself with three dates for one dance, occur as he founders deeper into his "inner-self-rnade" problems. 46 3 ATHLETICS All life is like cr game-with victory and defeat--with fierce competition-and with whole- hecrrted cooperation-with cx striving for something better.

Rallies, Games, Matches Sparked By 20 Pepsters Bounding with energy and radiating smiles, the Varsity and Junior Varsity cheerleaders boosted the Cowboys on to vic- tory. Enthusiasm in assemblies, pep rallies, skits, and half-time performances encour- aged the school spirit. New techniques were learned at the an- nual cheerleader clinic held in Abilene. Challenging steps and drills were learned as the Varsity cheerleaders traveled to Manhattan for Cheerleader's Day in No- vember. The Varsity cheerleaders' football out- fits consisted of brown sweaters and skirts with four inverted orange pleats and black- and-white oxfords. Brown skirts and vests were the outfits worn during the basket- ball season, The Junior Varsity cheerleaders, elected by five teachers and .six varsity cheerlead- ers, led cheers for the B-team squad. Their outfits consisted of orange skirts and vests. VARSITY CHEERLEADERS-Top Row: Iudy McCune.

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.

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 loss. 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.

Their Junior year was one of excite- ment and extra-curricula activities. They chose rings, planned the Junior Senior Prom, centered around the theme "Bon Voyage," and produced a successful comedy, "The Lilies of the Field? Finishing this great year, they managed to receive the CLASS OFFICERS-Susan Lombard, treas- urer, Rod Boyd, viceepresidentp Morrqczret Sword, secretary, Allen Switzer, president. SENIOR CLASS SPONSORS-Mr. Tice, Mr. Decrn, Mr. Grimes. All-.School Play trophy for "The Egg and I" for ticket sales. As seniors they added to their accom- plishments by winning the play trophy for the second year. Ordering caps, gowns, and senior announcements were the main highlights. Light blue class sweatshirts were the seniors, pride and joy. As it all came to close, they thought of their senior year not as the end, but only the beginning of opening new doors into a promising future. 81 Torn Adams Linda Allen Anita Anguiano Vanita Anguiano Steve Atkinson Gwen Baer John Berger Sharon Berger Susan Bezdek Robert Blachly Class Halled In Belllngham Exchange, European Trip Sue Book Bruce Bowers Stan Bowyer Danny Boyce Dennis Boyce Rodney Boyd Daryl Brandt Gary Burkholder Dave Burris Juanita Burton Sheila Butcher Dallas Calvin Clinton Chase Shearlene Comer Tom Copeland Steve Coup John Crandall Doris Davis Mike Davis Jay Dietrich 82 'H .,,bA r-rn' L Ek F lf 15' 'YW i .1 in Smal . 5 A -3' ,L 1, -'Lir1sz'1:,s. , . - r -' A A. 33 R X it GIRLS.

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- tra. 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- piness together. Typical of many scenes, Alfred P. Doolittle and his buddies are kicked out of their favor- ite tavern, "The Pub", and are in need of "A Little Bit of Luck." i. i Mrs. Eynsford Hill Freddy Eynsford Hill Henry Higgins ,,,,, Selsey Man ,,,,,,,, Hoxton Man ., First Cockney ,,,,,,,,,, Bartender ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.
