Page One 714 Hull OKj, oJj Alliance High School 1 ';• ■ Dedication December 7, 1941 marked the beginning of a conflict, the beginning for America at least, a conflict which was to cost the lives of thousands of the youth of the nation—the cream of the land. They were called forth from all the walks of life which cause a democratic nation to function. They were called and they went—willingly, without hesitation, from farms, factories, drafting rooms, law offices, filling stations, and colleges to serve, to die if need be. Many have died, many more shall die for a cause in which every true American, sincerely believes. They sacrifice for the inalienable God—given rights to which every human being is entitled. To those last mentioned, and especially to those graduates oj Alliance High School who have paid the Supreme Sacrifice, uie the faculty, the administration. and the members of the Annual Staff, humbly dedicate this publication. “The Bulldog ’45.”A.

RUST JAMES ROSENFELDT LeROY RADER Page FourMr. Partridge Mr. Partridge as Superintendent of Schools has charge of all the schools in Alliance. Proof of his fine work can he seen both from the economic standpoint and from the scholastic records of the students. The Alliance school system is fortunate in having a superintendent who sees the possibilities in a greater development of our schools. Mr. Nelson Any school, to bring out the best in the students and teachers, must be run smoothly. The principal has the task of mixing just the right amount of discipline, freedom, and fun into a well-regulated school. Mr. Nelson has done all of this and more, making our school one of which we can very well be proud. Page SixMRS. VERA BAYER A B. M. A.

It was presented to grade schools, high school, and townspeople on February 19th and 2Cth. Betty Buchfinck and Kenny Sayre, playing as Penny and Kerry in the title roles, acted their parts to perfection. Joanna played by llamae Zable, playing opposite Greg portrayed by Tom Morrow, did an excellent job of making the play a huge success. Penny’s mother and father, characterized by Dixie Heidebrecht and Don Boyer added hilarity to the play as each thinks more of their social life and work than of their children. Sally the maid, played by Pat Meyers was a maid with a purpose and that purpose was Mark, Penny’s farm-minded brother, portrayed by Ed Bruere. Dave Barker was in the role of Norman Porter, publicity man. Harrison Day, the author, was portrayed by Bill Chleborad. Charlotte Cook filled the role of Mavis, hard working sister of Penny. Gram, characterized by Dorothy Pearson, was the lovable character of the play. Henri, French designer, was portrayed by Wilbert Keder whose models were Jeannine Mosiman, June Dalton, and Pat Stiers. The remaining character was brought to life by Gene Wilcox. “Don’t Take My Penny” was the first play directed by Miss Quigley. dramatic coach, who came to AHS at the start of this school year. It was acclaimed by all who saw it as a huge success. Page Twenty-threePage Twenty-fourPage Twenty-fivePage Twenty-si. First Row—Lee McLaughlin. Iona Wilkins, Charlotte Kronberg. Phyllis Weldon.

Bob ShaTenbergerFRESHMEN One hundred thirty-one freshmen of the class of 1944-1945 elected a girl, Vera Crook, president. This is the first time in the history of Alliance High School that a girl has been elected to the class presidency. The other freshman officers who were elected are as follows: Anita Reddick, vice-president; Fern Weinell, secretary; Betty Broich, treasurer, and Shirley Fahrenbruch, Charles Brennan, and Marvin Boyer, student council. The majority of the freshmen boys went out for sports. On November 13, the Freshmen Bullpups beat the Scottsbluff Bearkittens 35-13. This victory over the freshmen of Scottsbluff was the first football victory an Alliance freshmen team had handed the 'Bluffs in five years. On February 17, the freshmen basketball team played the junior high team, beating them 32-14. In celebration of the Bullpups' victory over Scottsbluff, the freshmen gave a party on November 24 in the high school gym. As a representative of the freshmen class, Shirley Fahrenbruch served as an attendant to the Hi-Y Sweetheart. In the contest for the election of the Bond Queen, Betty Broich represented the freshmen class. The freshmen chose Vera Crook and Dean Johnson as their Farmer and Farmerette. During the '44 and '45 school term the freshmen class led the four classes in the Honor Roll of Alliance High School. Page Twenty-nineFreshmen First year English is the basis for the succeeding English courses in high school. The course consists of a study of literature, composition, and grammar. The literature offered is a very general introduction to types of literature. It is presented in such a manner that will stimulate an appreciation and love of literature. Part of the year will be devoted to written composition. Letter writing will be emphasized so that the pupil may become familiarized with the correct forms of both friendly and business letters. Grammar is merely a review of the parts of speech, kinds of sentences, and the parts of the sentence. Junior By the time the student enters his third year of high school, he is expected to have a mastery of the principles of grammar and composition. Junior English is organized to make the pupil speech conscious. The pupil learns by experience to perfect the art of speechmaking. Development of voice quality, clear enunciation, accurate pronunciation, and conveyance of ideas simply and interestingly is the object of the course. Second semester is devoted to American literature. Of practical value, it will form a background for future social studies. E I G L I S H Sophomore Literature is taught the first semester so that the student may have a more thorough knowledge of the different types of literature. This will include a study of the novel and also what makes a good novel. Composition, with special emphasis on vocabulary; learning to speak correctly; and to write by doing so. is also taught. The intention of this phase of the course is to develop a keenness of observation, and improve ability to organize subject matter. Grammar throughout the school year, is taught as a habit building unit and a device to improve style in composition. Senior Emphasis is placed on English literature so that the student will develop an idea of the literature of the world. The periods of literature, development and representative writers in each are also given special consideration. Through sufficient drill on basis grammar principles, the student will be equipped with practical necessities for correct speech in everyday use. Composition is to train the student to communicate his interests in a pleasing, correct, and effective manner. A study of the magazine is also taken up. The pupil becomes familiar with the names of recognized writers of today and develops an interest in modem writing. Page Thirty-threePUBLICATIONS Publication of any school paper is not a matter of writing alone. Many other very necessary steps are needed before the issue is complete. In the picture can be seen The Spud staff in action. They are at work performing the different tasks so that The Spud will come out as scheduled. Reading from left to right, they are: LaRue Jones, standing at left; Bob Holder, proof reading galley; Gretchen Hawley, at typewriter; Maurice Rogers, writing copy; Ben Akert, holding dummy page; La-Rhea Mullender, folding papers for exchange; Don Walker and Elaine Adams are at the board; Alice Bailey draws up an advertisement at the board; and Harold Lawson. Dick King, Gene Wilcox, Jerry Eberly, and Howard Walker pasting galley proof on a dummy page. This years annual staff has been the first staff for many years working for a yearbook. The offices which are represented are: editor-in-chief, assistant editor, make-up editor, sports editor, business manager, director of clubs and classes and proofreaders and copyreaders. Information has been organized by staff members and they have been working hard to meet deadlines for publication dates. Mrs. Vera Bayer is acting as adviser and Mr. Roy E. Nelson acts as finance adviser. Credit can be also given to three members, now in college, for starting the original plans for this year book. Page Thirty-fourTwo years of Latin are offered. It takes up the correlation of latin and grammar studying the form endings, memorizing of foundation words and declension of verbs. Students learn to read sentences and short paragraphs and recognize the form and values of words in the printed page. It is only a preparatory course and is taken usually by students intending to enter college, study languages or prepare for medical or nursing professions. It is also enjoyed by those who intend to study literature, newspaper work or printing as it helps with the meaning and spelling of many words used in the English language. Many students slight this subject in high school, later wishing they had spent just a little more time, maybe just enough for a B. Art is being taught this semester for the first time in our school. All students are expected to furnish their materials. The course will take up form, color combination and complimentary color study in either or both crayon or oil as the student desires. They can advance as fast as they are able, some students may be able to sketch landscapes. This subject teaches the eye, the hand, and the mind to work in harmony. It gives the student much freedom of self expression and developes much interest in otherwise unnoticed objects. Many people think of art only as a hobby or pastime, while it may develop qualities leading to cartooning or dress designing both profitable professions. Pfe Thirty-foeFRESHMAN ALGEBRA Freshmen algebra is the first mathematical requirement of high school. It is quite a change from arithmetic because it involves problems about unknown quantities repreesnt by x, y and z. It is the basic course for students planning to major in mathematics or take engineering courses in college. It is taught by a most excellent teacher. Miss lillian Bums. Better listen carefully to every class or you won’t know when to add or subtract and may be the minus student before the end of the course. ADVANCED ALGEBRA Advanced algebra is a subject offered to junior and senior students who have successfully completed the previous courses of algebra and geometry This subject is also taught by Miss Bums who will deftly show them how problems can stretch into vast spaces, yet arrive at a reasonable answer. Trigonometry is given the second semester by the same teacher and debraces further into the principles of geometric figures by use of sines, cosines, tangents and logarithms. GEOMETRY Geometry is the mathematic taught during the sophomore year. Many girls take it but few like it because it deals with surfaces, planes and angles. Problems are solved by memorized theorems which are proven facts. Boys enjoy this subject for it stimulates imagination and gives them dreams of future courses to be explored such as civil engineering. Miss Hartwell will ably assist all students taking this course to criticize the angles and surfaces of their lop-sided figures. Page Thirty-six SOLID GEOMETRY Solid geometry is a senior subject dealing with the angles and content of various solid figures. It is also taught by Miss Bums and is a required subject for students planning to enter college and major in engineering, areo-nautics or nautical calculation for the navy. This subject is usually pursued by few students who stand well toward the head of their class. The second semester takes up a short course in calculus or college mathematics.GENERAL SCIENCE General science is an introduction into the world of cause and effect taking up the study of heat. cold, expansion, lightning. and the artificial use of natural conditions. Well taught, this subject brings to view new values concerning the most common activities going on in nature and how they can be harnessed to help in the civilizatiort of man. It adds to our knowledge of soil and its formation, heat and its radiation, and soil erosion. It is taught by Mr. Johnson. BIOLOGY Biology, a sophomore subject, is taught by Mr. Binfteld. It deals with the reproduction of plant and animal life. The student studies plants and animals in regard to their cell composition and relation of each other and natural conditions Usually some laboratory work including the dissecting of snakes or frogs for class study is done. Boys like this subject but girls usually accept the idea the world will roll along if they don’t understand all the little complications. PHYSICS Physics given as a junior subject, often persued by senior students. It deals with atoms, molecules, electrolysis, evaporation, and radiation. One also studies the value of various pulleys, the workings of the common engine. Don’t forget Charles or Boyles Law. lest you get into trouble with those temperature problems. Yes, girls it is a tiresome bore but work hard, it develops the mind. CHEMISTRY Chemistry as a senior subject includes both text and laboratory periods. Here you learn to classify metals, minerals and compounds by various methods. You learn about salts, bases, decomposition, and the effect of acids. Such fun! You break test tubes, bum your fingers, and perfume the laboratory. Still the girls can’t see what happened. Page Thirty-sevenOCCUPATION Occupation is a subject taught by Herman Nelson during the freshman year. It is listed as required curricular. It acquaints the student with the requirements of many general positions to be filled by the young people of each generation. The teacher tries to. through education, help the students judge their capabilities so that they may select an occupation that will make them give to the world the best they have and thus feel they have contributed something to the future. Absorb the advice then accept the best position you can locate and learn that the doings of the world are never found between the covers of a textbook. WORLD HISTORY World history is usually taught during the sophomore year and deals with the beginning of civilization. It studies various ancient nations, their origin and forms of government the causes of changes they underwent and effect upon their national life and other countries around them. It acquaints the student with many nations and various forms of government Why we need laws and the effect various changes have had upon people during the early rise of nations. AMERICAN HISTORY American history begins with the study of settlement of the first thirteen colonies. It continues with their struggle for growth and advancement leading up to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The student continues to study how our government was formed, the rise of political parties, the cause and effect of various wars that have been fought. This subject is the beginning of training for citizenship and is a required subject in many schools. Many students dislike to study history because they fail to realize the effect it may have on the future. CIVICS Civics is taught to acquaint students with the intricacies of our democratic government. It deals with the making and enforcing of laws, the requirements necessary for filling various public offices. It delves into our educational system, free press, free speech, habeas corpus and ex post facto laws. Two classes were taught last semester. The second semester sociology is taught to assist students in adjusting themselves into the world in the making. It is an aid in building harmony in life by study of the causes and effect of general conditions on the life of the growing individual. The same teachers continue this subject following civics. Page Thirty-eightCOMMERCIAL Shorthand Shorthand is a quick method of recording dictation or conversation by use of signs to represent words. The most common method in use today is the Gregg system. It is offered in this school as a two-year course for junior and senior students. The start is made in memorizing letter symbols, brief forms and a few syllables. Most of the work is given in the text accompanied by a book with reading exercises suitable for the work covered. Short sentences, paragraphs, and finally letters are dictated. In the first year they work more for accuracy rather than speed. During the second year, phrase grouping, forming of new words, and much transcription is required. They have many speed tests and try reading from other manuals and the Gregg Writer. They work for speed certificates up to 140-words a minute, transcribed 95 per cent accurate. To be prepared for any job at the close of school, most students must spend more than school hours in acquiring speed. This is usually a field for girls, however, the few boys who complete the course usually find very good positions awaiting them. Typing Typing is a two-year course taught during the junior and senior years The first year, much time is spent memorizing the keyboard by the touch method. One hundred most common words are practiced to obtain accuracy. Later letter forms and general practice materials are used. Second-year typing students work for speed, shorthand transcription. and filing. Some time is spent on business forms and legal typing. Many students earn speed awards, and benefit greatly by the use of their accomplishments in holding part-time jobs. Hookkeeping Two types of bookkeeping are offered in our school, the Personal Record-Keeping and the Twentieth Century Bookkeeping and Accounting. Personal Record-keeping is an elementary course offered mostly for self or family use. Three practice sets are completed during the year. The advanced course also requires the completion of two practice sets. Much time is required to develop accuracy and neatness in arrangement and balancing of accounts. Careful and accurate reading is important for posting accounts so they can be placed under the proper headings. Many of the trial balance, profit and loss, balance sheet, and other statements fail to balance until the student nearly reaches the conclusion that "figures lie.” This is one place a good pal is invaluable for checking work to locate mistakes. Page Thirty-nineShop “Ag” Homemaking Agriculture, an important part of the present global war, is studied by those interested in farming and ranching as a profession. This study includes livestock, poultry, crops, farm management, soil conservation, natural resources, pets, wild game, insects, bees, birds, and farm engineering. A separate library for agriculture is kept in the “ag” room, which includes the problems studied there. This library is set up on the Dewey decimal system. The “ag” classes get a practical application of their studies on trips and also at their own farms. The little building northeast of the school also is for practical experience. Here the boys get auto mechanics, metal working, sheet metal, and other arts needed for their future work. Shop For boys who enjoy working with their hands, this is an ideal course. The student learns by doing and fashioning small articles and furniture from wood. Students taking this course also learn about the different Carpentry tools and how to use them. This subject is not required and is usually taken by freshmen and sophomores. Juniors and seniors may take it if they wish. Homemaking To train girls in the art of homemaking for a fuller and richer life is the purpose of the course. An elective subject, it is offered the first two years of high school, although juniors and seniors may take it. Training is offered in cooking, sewing, hygiene, etiquette, and nutrition. The primary activities of the class are the planning and serving of meals. Page FortyTechnical Courses Radio Code This class was started at the end of the first semester in place of radio. It is taught by Mr. Johnston, Physics and pre-flight teacher. The course, mainly for boys, considers all types of radio instruments. After a certain length of time the boys take code off of the phonograph records sent out for this purpose. Auto Mechanics Comparatively new in Alliance high school, Auto Mechanics is predominately a boy's course. The subject is not required, but any one who plans on being a mechanic, should take this course. Different parts of the car and different types of engines are studied extensively. The student learns how to overhaul the engines and keep them timed correctly. A study of the metals used is also taken up. Pre-flight Everyone signing up for the Pre-flight course must submit certain information about his preparation and background. The students today will be the leaders in the new “air age,” therefore they must be taught the principles that make flight possible. The Army and Navy have expressed a need for preliminary training in our high schools for those boys, who, on graduation, will become candidates for military duty. In cooperation with this, our school has established the Pre-flight training course. The course the students receive covers the entire Pre-flight field. This includes discussion of the his-torv of aviation, types of planes, how planes are built, the theory of the airplane engine, and simple principles of aeronautics. Page Forty-onePhysical Education GIRLS’ PHYSICAL EDUCATION In cooperation with the government’s plan to build healthy bodies for the young people of America, A. H. S. has made this a required subject. The activities which the girls take part in throughout the year are. volley ball, soccer ball, calisthenics, tumbling, basketball, (by far the most popular), relay races, field hockey, and kittenball. Building healthy bodies is not the only accomplishment of Phys. Ed. It teaches good sportsmanship, cooperation and how to get along with others. BOYS’ PHYSICAL EDUCATION Boys' Phys. Ed. has the same purpose as girls’ —to build healthy, young Americans. The course is required for all boys excepting those participating in extracurricular athletics such as football, basketball, and track. Touch football, basketball, and some tumbling are played the first semester and part of the second semester. Conditioning, combatives, track, volley ball, kitten ball, and some apparatus work are done toward the end of the school year. Page Forty-twoPage Forty-threeFuture Farmers of America Alliance Chapter President ...............Louis Mlskhnen Vke Pres.................Boh Crest house Adviser Hinson N. Murray gerrrtiry Haro Jensen Reporter Alvin Wilkins Treasurer Charles McLean Future Farmers of America is a national organiza-tion of farm boys who are studying vocational agriculture. rt was first organized in 1928. The Alliance Chapter was chartered in 1938. Future Farmer work gives supplemental training opportunities to boys in many fields whieh otherwise would not be taught in high school courses. F. F. A. is the work of the boys, by the boys, and for the boys. Agricultural and shop questions are studied and dis- cussed. programs of work are set up. and leadership is developed as such programs are carried through to completion. Community service projects and cooperative activities are sponsored with the school, community. and other chapters. Scholarship is stimulated in the earning oi advanced degrees. Crops and stock judging contests, farm shop contests, public speaking contests and better chapter contests are developed. This year the Alliance Chapter had a three day summer camp and fishing trip, held an open house mixer for the beginning boys in vocational agriculture, gave a Hallowe’en party to the homemaking girls, were given a Christmas party by the homemaking girls, had a •‘Parent-Son" pot luck supper, went on a "tractor hay-rack ride" date party, and will make a projects tour trip to each boy’s home and projects. The president, vice president and adviser were called to the Chadron State Teacher’s College for a special conference relative to post war curriculum planning for agriculture in Western Nebraska. The Greenhand degree was conferred upon Fred Brost. Richard Daugherty. Robert Driml. Charles Galusha. Eldon Holthus. Eugene Kerns. George McDonald. Thomas McDonald. Dick Minor. Marion Mracek. Sherrell Porter. Don Simpson. Wilburn Timblin. Keith Tolstedt Alvin Wilkins, and Edwin Davis. The Chapter Farmer degree was bestowed upon Paul Essex, and Don Hall. The Alliance candidate for State Farmer this year is Louis Miskimen. The Alliance Chapter was highly honored in being host chapter for one of the four sections of the State Convention of Future Farmers of America. April 21, 1945. Page Forty-fiveThe Alliance branch of Hi-Y was organized in the 1935 school year with a membership of 48. P. W. Lamb was the sponsor. Mr. Lamb had been active in promoting Hi-Y in other schools. He had charge of the association at Auburn, Nebraska, and assisted at the Lincoln and Jackson High Schools at Lincoln. Officers were Carl Y'oung, president: Ralph Worden, vice-president; Elliott Wilson, secretary; and James Hall as treasurer. The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character. In 1936, H. C. Nelson came to Alliance and became head of the Club. This year’s officers are Bob Holder, president: Ray Young, vice-president; Herb Lemon, secretary: Ray Grove, treasurer; and Dick King, program chairman. The officers were moved up when Bob Holder left for the University of Nebraska. During the school year, Alliance Hi-Y club operated, among all other activities, stands at the football and basketball games. Volunteers sold pop, hot dogs, and candy to enthusiastic Alliance sport fans. The picture to the left shows Albert W'einell, Paul Sward, and Bill McMaster standing in front of the outside candy stand. The picture to the right is one of Frank McAnick and Bill Tragesser behind at one of the basketball games. Page Forty-sixPage Forty-sevenGIRL - - - SENIOR DIVISION For the last 18 years, the Girl Reserve Club in A. H. S. has been an active girls organization. The Girl Reserve Club is affiliated with the Nebraska District Y. W. C. A., for the training of girls to meet the world. As a slogan for this club, each girl takes her oath to face life squarely- and to find and give the best. The code of Girl Reserve is twelve standards, which each girl is to live. These are: gracious in manner, impartial in judgment, ready for service, loyal to friends, reaching for the best, earnest in purpose, seeing the beautiful, eager for knowledge, reverent to God, victorious over self, ever dependable, and sincere at all times. The symbol of the club is a circle which encloses an equilateral triangle. The three points of the triangle are symbolic of the three developments of mankind: soul, body, and mind. The circle represents the world about us and as we develop we push out the circle into greater knowledge. The colors are blue and white with blue, symbolic of loyalty, and white for purity. This club is not only local and national but also international. Its work can be traced to China, Europe, and all parts of the globe where there are girls. The governing body of the club is called the cabinet. For the Sr. Division the officers are president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, program chairman, social chairman, musician, historian. For an advisory board, the club has a council. This council is composed of about fifteen prominent women in Alliance. The purpose of the council is to advise the club and work with them as an advisory commission. Alliance has been noted for their council, and their work has been great in the success of the club. Page Forty eightRESERVE JUNIOR DIVISION OF GIRL RESERVE The sophomore and freshman classes are the two classes which make up the Jr. Division of Girl Reserve. This division also has its own cabinet which consists of a president, vice-president, program chairman, and secretary. They meet with the Sr. crbinet at their regular meetings for club organization. Each week the club is given 30 minutes of school time for their meetings. This time is divided into two groups—program and workshops. One week the club has workshops. These are personal relations, worship, and dramatics. They are under the direction of one of the council women. The following week a program planned by the dramatics and worship workshops is given. Also working with the cabinet and council are the sponsors. Two are elected for the Sr. Division and two for the Junior Division. These women are teachers and help the girls with the club maintenance and organization. The club is very active in the social life of the school. Each year they have seasonal parties as well as the regular parties such as the Jr. High Tea, Senior Banquet, Patteran, and Caira. Some of the other activities of the club are the yearly singing of Christmas carols for the shut-ins of Alliance, filling baskets at Thanksgiving, visiting hospitals and taking gifts to patients. Also they make comic booklets, roll Red Cross bandages, and fit sewing kits to be sent to our fighting forces. The Alliance Girl Reserve was started in 1927 by Mrs. Grace Spacht and has been growing ever since. It is now the second largest in the state. As long as there are girls, council, and the want to better themselves, there will always be a Girl Reserve Club. Page Forty-nineThe A Club is one of the youngest clubs of Alliance High School. Proposed in April, 1941, a year elapsed before the constitution and bylaws were organized and officers were selected. Chet Jones was voted vice-president; Bob Partridge, secretary-treasurer; and Bill Rust, sergeant-at-arms. Under the constitution, an officer was to be elected at the end of the first semester and to serve two semesters. Seniors are not eligible for election. The purpose of the club is to increase participation in athletics and to become a member a boy has to win a major award in one of the authorized sports in Alliance High, football, basketball, track, tennis, and golf. Tennis and golf have been dropped since the constitution was formed and at the present time no members have won letters in these sports. Before these sports were dropped, the membership included girls if they lettered in tennis. Also a member must maintain a “C” average scholastically if he becomes ineligible for athletic competition because of low grades, he is automatically dropped from the roll. At the end of the administration of Jack Harrel in 1942, Lyle Colerick was selected as president; Horace Monfort, vice-president; Kenneth Minnick, secretary-treasurer; and George Roach, sargent-at-arms. Other members at this time were Max Woodlee, Raymond Sherlock, Lance Menuey, Dale Colerick, Tom Phelan, Delmar King, Bob Mulloy, and Don Schroder. When the year 1943 ended, Kenneth Minnick was chosen president; Raymond Sherlock, vice-president; Dale Colerick, secretary-treasurer; and Delmar King, sergeant-at-arms. Page FiftyCLUB i Under the sponsorship of C. J. Kubicek, the club got underway. When the 1944-45 school year opened, and the time came for the selection of a Football Queen, it was decided that the “A” Club should be in charge of the election to be held among the athletes out for football at that time instead of having the whole school vote as had been done in the past. We chose as our Queen, Idonna Tolstedt, and delegated one of our members to present her to the audience during the intermission of the ScottsblufT game on November 11. She was presented with an engraved trophy at this time by Bob Mul-loy, the “A” Club representative. At the end of the football season it was decided to hold an initiation of the new members. Thev were required to dress as girls for one day of school. In this manner ten new members were admitted to the club. This completed the year 1944 and at the end of the semester we elected new officers for the coming year. Dave Barker was elected president; Paul Rust, vice-president; Dale Colerick was re-elected to the position of secretary-treasurer; and Jack Meltebarger was chosen sergeant-at-arms. The new president outlined a plan which showed many good times in store for us during the remainder of the year. Page Fifty-oneFront—I donna Tolstedt. Beryl Lotspeich. Miss McLafferty.

The first pep clubs consisted of both boys and girls, boys dropped out in 1940. In 1924, the pepsters had their first snake dance, for the annual Scottsbluff-Alliance Armistice day game. This has been a tradition every year since. In 1929. new Pep Club members were voted into the club by old members. Qualifications were: Appearance, pep. interest, effect and quality of voice. This practice was traditional until 1940, then anyone choosing to join Pep Club could without the vote of old members. In 1936. the pepsters tried something different during basketball season. Instead of rallies they gave stunts at the half of the games. This was done until 1938 when they went back to the old form of rallies. In 1938. the Pep Club drew up its first constitution. The rules were: 1. Members cannot wear uniforms except on game days and rallies. 2. A member must buy hef own uniform. 3. Uniforms must be neat, clean, and ready to wear at all moments. 4. Three unexcused absences expel members. Seventh periods are unexcused absences. 5. Members counted late if not present by 4:05. Must have excuse if tardy. 6. Present written excuse to Secretary-Treasurer when absent. 7. Roll taken at the half of each game, meeting, and rally practices. 8. No member can leave meeting unless excused by president. 9. Misconduct expels member from meetings. 10. All members must have activity booklets and a failure in any subject drops a member for next six weeks. Also in 1938 the Pep Club started the annual Fall party for the football and band members. It was semi-formal until this year; now it is formal. In 1939, the Pep Club adopted an honor system which enabled any senior girl to receive a certificate, who followed these rules: 1. No unexcused absence, and not more than three excused absences. 2. Passing grades in all subjects. 3. No tardies. 4. Must serve on at least two committees. 5. Good conduct. 6. Willingness to participate in Pep Club drills and rallies. 7. Clean and neat uniforms, and good sportsmanship. Also in 1939. the election of Queen became a tradition. She was voted on by the entire student body. Qualifications were: Member of Pep Club two years or in band, and a “c" average. Cheerleaders were chosen by a popular vote. Ten or more were nominated, from the senior class, then voted on. The following year they made their own motions and yells. This was changed in 1941. and qualification for a cheerleader was two years of junior cheer leading which was set up in the constitution. Pep Club boy friend became a new feature in the Pep Club in 1941 also. Qualifications were: Any senior boy. who has been in football, basketball or track. Page Fifty-threeFOOTBALL Conference Champs ALLIANCE vs. STERLING Alliance Bulldog fans saw the chances of the AHS squad in their performance against Sterl i n g, Colorado. After getting off to a bad start when they lost the ball on the opening kickoff with a fumble, the Blue and White rallied to overcome a 6 point lead and tied the score 26 to 26. Alliance scored in the last three minutes of play to take a 7 point lead, but even before the final gun a 45 yard pass was grasped on the goal line by a Sterling player who went over for a touchdown. The extra point was made to tie the game. While Sterling had the upper hand during the first half of the game, Coach Binfield’s boys were masters of the second half. The Bulldogs rolled up 12 first downs to Sterling's 6 in the second half. Alliance, starting from their own 40, sent the ball 60 yards in 3 first-and-tens. Raymond "Cotton" Sherlock “45"—Senior and cocaptain of “44" season. Came to AHS from Texas in Sophomore year. Three year letterman. First string guard and defensive, linebacker on five man line. ALLIANCE vs. HOT SPRINGS Flashing through the second game of the season and the last home game until November 3, the Bulldog squad rampaged over Hot Springs to the tune of 27 to 0. A fine kickoff by Alliance and bad luck for Hot Springs when an attempted kick was blocked after a failure to make a first down put the Bulldogs in scoring position early in the game. In the third play after the kick was blocked, Bruere went thirty-one yards around his own left end to score standing up. Menuey’s plunge for the extra point sent the Bulldogs ahead 7 to 0. Woodlee made the next touchdown in the second period and King kicked the conversion. Again Woodlee scored, this time in the third period setting the Bulldogs ahead 20 to 0. Bruere on a line buck made the fourth and final score with King booting the extra point. ALLIANCE vs. CHADRON Again the powerful eleven came out on top, this time handing Chadron a 32 to 0 defeat. Right after the opening kickoff the Bulldogs marched 68 yards to their first score. Again they scored in the first quarter, twice in the second period and once in the third. Woodlee made three of the touchdowns, while Bruere and Menuey were credited with one apiece. Reserves saw action in this game, playing about 5 minutes of the second quarter and all of the fourth. Although they were never in any serious difficulty neither did they make a score. Graham, a sophomore was the outstanding defensive player on the reserve squad. Several times he broke through the blockers to intercept and down the ball carrier, causing much confusion to the Chadron eleven and delighting the Bulldog fans. John Harding “45”—Senior, captain of the "44" season. Played first string quarterback. His blocking on offense and line-backing and defense was one of the main factors in winning the conference. Tran s f e r r e d from Okmulgee, Okla. ALLIANCE vs. CHEYENNE Figured the underdogs, the Alliance Bulldogs handed the Cheyenne Indians a 12 to 7 defeat in a thrill packed game. This was Cheyenne’s first defeat in two years. Played on the Fort Warren field, the Alliance squad led the half 12 to 0, getting their first score when King caught a pass from Menuey and loped 30 yards for the touchdown. In the second quarter, Menuey drove off tackle to make the second and final score for the Bulldogs. Both tries for extra points had failed. Cheyenne domineered the second half keeping the Bulldogs pretty well in their own territory without opportunity to score. Cheyenne’s only score came in the fourth period, after Woodlee fumbled the ball, they worked it down the field into scoring position. The extra point was good, making the score 12 to 7 where it stayed until the final gun. Homes, a senior and one of Cheyenne’s best backs, was out of the game because of injuries. Page Fifty-sevenALLIANCE vs. MITCHELL The Bulldogs ook Mitchell in their stride to keep their record clean of defeats. The game was less than a minute old when Menuey on the first play ran 96 yards for the first score. The second tally came when Wood-lee received a pass from Menuey. King kicked the conversion point. A 57 yard run by Menuey to Mitchell’s 7 yard line paved the way for the next score. Menuey made a line buck for the score and again King kicked the extra point. Mitchell scored once in each half. The first was set up when Curtis made a brilliant 28 yard run. A pass from Williams to W hipple completed the score. Mitchell's second score came when Fry received a long pass in the end zone. W'oodlee lunged over in the second half, after a series of plavs had brought the ball downfield from a Mitchell fumble. The final touchdown came when Menuey received a punt from Mitchell and on a beautiful open field run carried the ball 75 yards to score. ALLIANCE vs. SIDNEY- In chalking up 17 first downs to their opponents four, the Alliance eleven handed Sidney a 21 to 6 drubbing. Scoring in each of the first three quarters and being blanked in the final period when Sidney made its only score. Menuey, Graham, and Woodlee shared the scoring honors, with each making one touchdown. In the first quarter Menuey ran 47 yards to make the first score and carried the ball again for the extra point. After Hunt intercepted a pass, Menuey and Woodlee drove the ball down to the one-yard line as the first period ended. Woodlee took the ball over on the first play of the second period. After a number of short gains in the third period Graham received a lateral pass from Woodlee to score standing up. Bonestill caught a pass for Sidney to set up their only score and on the last play of the game Harding caught a pass on the Sidney one-foot line. ALLIANCE vs. CHAPPELL Lance Menuey "45"—This triple threat back earned recognition in Gregg McBride's column. Hard hitting and elusive he made many of the yards needed to win. His passing attack and punting, several times pulled AHS out of a hole. Alliance’s Bulldogs had to stage a desperate drive in the last 2 minutes of play to win over Chappell and win the Western Nebraska Conference crown. Max Woodlee, Bulldog fullback, proved to be the margin of victory, as he set up the touchdown with a fifteen yard plunge to the 12. Four plays later, he went over from the 2 for the winning score. The first 3 periods were run off identically with each team gaining and then being forced to punt. Chappell dominated third quarter play. After that, neither team could get closer than 20 yards to pay dirt. With Menuey and Woodlee carrying the load. Alliance began moving in the fourth period. Runs and penalties paid off as Alliance gained to the 2 from where Woodlee scored the lone touchdown. Page Fifty-eightALLIANCE vs. SCOTTSBLL'FF Alliance met their arch rivals, Scottsbluff in their Annual Armistice Day fracas, and by combining speed with power, the Bulldogs outlasted the Bearcats, 20-0, before a packed crowd of 2000.

King added the extra point to make the score: Alliance 20—Scottsbluff 0.

They were Raymond Sherlock, John Harding, Max Woodlee, Delmar King, and Lance Menuey while Everett Weed, Francis Merrit, and Howard Walker played the final moments. McConchey received King’s kickoff on the goal line and brought it back to his own 18. A punt to Menuey on the 45 started Alliance toward their first points. Line plunges by Menuey, Woodlee, and Bruere carried the ball to the goal. Menuey swung into the end zone but fumbled the ball where it was recovered by Minnick for 6 points. Menuey made the other touchdown in the 3rd period when he hit the center from the 4. King’s conversion was successful. In the final moments, the Platters marched to the Buldog’s 20 where they were as the gun went off.

Sidney For their second game of the season, and their first conference game, the Alliance Bulldogs came out on the short end of a 37-36 score.

Page Sixty-eight r r r Page Sixty-nineInstrumental Music Department For the I 944-45 School Year The instrumental department of the Alliance schools, is unique in that it is active the year round. With the aid of the Municipal Band program, regular summer concerts are given in Alliance’s beautiful park at the band shell. This helps to round out the regular vesper series given in the winter months by the instrumental and vocal departments of the high school and grade schools. Students may begin their instrumental study in the fourth grade, on any band or orchestra instrument. The larger percent of students purchase their own instruments, but many are privileged to use school or city owned instruments. Their is no tuition charge made nor is any rental charge made for instruments owned bv the school. The administration has made school music life a very important part of the school curriculum. Pursuance of music can be made during school time the same as other curricular subjects which makes it possible to have first class music groups. The band, marching unit and many small groups and soloists not only have taken district and state honors but Alliance boasts quite a record of national honors. The most recent distinction given the band was a large plaque and individual awards presented to each band member since Pearl Harbor by the National Music War Council of America. This was made for outstanding and continued service, both for civilian and service programs. For the past several years, over 200 programs annually have been presented by the instrumental department. Another added feature for outstanding students in the band is the opportunilv to receive a scholarship from the Alliance Elks Lodge to attend the Chadron Park National Band Camp held each summer. Page SeventyVocal Department To be discovered as a crooner or to be created as an operatic mezzo-soprano i« not reason for the student to have a course in room 217. Each pupil who comes evidently has some interest in music in general, or specifically in the vocal field: and through interrelation of theory and the singing of new and old songs, we find a distinct pleasure and emotional experience, bo‘h for ourselves and for others in providing them with cultural entertainment. Every voice contributes a definite part to the group as a whole, whether it be an ensemble or a chorus. The voice is God-given: we make of it what we will.
