Farewell From The Seniors
The class of '49 wishes to take this opportunity to say goodbye to the under-
classmen, teachers, and the members of the school board. lt has been swell spend-
ing four wonderful years with you, and we hope we can continue our friendship
even after we leave A. H. S.
As we face the world of uncertainties, we will think of those who made our
education possible. We wish to thank the taxpayers, the faculty, and the board of
education for all the opportunities they have offered us. We are better prepared
now for a new, different world.
We shall enioy thinking back over all the fun and events that have taken
place. We tried to make our school a better one, and we hope that you as under-
classmen will do the same.
As we walk across the stage receiving our diplomas, we wish all the future
classes the best of luck in their school days and hope that they will have as many
good times as we, the class of '49 did.

Journalism . . .
The first Spud was published in the form of a yearbook and
was started in 1949. This was similar to our annual of today. It
included pictures of different classes, football players, Snapshots,
and advertising. By the individual pictures of the seniors were
placed their witty sayings and nicknames.
In 1921, The Spud was started as a weekly high school
paper. It was much smaller, only 3 columns wide and 10 inches
long. From 1925 to 1930 it grew to a 4 column, 13 inches long.
In 1936 the paper was changed to the present size, bi-weekly
Spud, approximately twice the size of the previous paper.

must be a saleswoman-but nol She is Jane's cousin from
Garcyville who has come to visit.
Junior Class Play
"Strictly Formal" is the story of Jane, a natural
teen, and her difficulties in getting a date to the dance.
Two cousins-Sally's from New York and Jane's
from Garcyville, complicate matters. Marcia lures the
girls' dates away from them. Cindy has a lot of ideas
on how everything can be straightened out, but most
of them backfire.
Elroy didn't help the situation because, although
he was a reserve choice of every girl, he had no in-
tention of going to the dance.
A happy ending is natural with everyone having
a date to the big dance.

Senior Class Play . . .
'LOVE IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE'
The action of the play "Love ls Too Much Trouble"
takes place in the hang-out of the Ivy Gate college,
the Poison Pot. It is the every day life of the students
that makes up the life of the college, and is very typical
of their troubles.
They all seem to want to get to the Junior Prom
and some of the ways that Joe Burke and "Pinky"
Hamilton scheme and to get there are very shock-
ing. They seem to get themselves in so much trouble
that the average giant would be in deep water up to

"Few are open to conviction but the maiority

The Debate Club, beginning in January of l949,
was started by several high school students who
had the desire to stage debates. Their first meeting
was held in December of 1948, but the club wasn't
really organized until the following month.
At their second meeting on the last Friday of
January, the club drew up the principles for their
constitution and also formed their standards.
During their third meeting, the club voted for
a chairman and a secretary and began gathering
their first debate material.
The members of the club held library meetings
with their sponsor and gathered their reference
material. At special meetings, they also staged fun
debates by and between themselves.
Their first debate was on the topic of the
United Nations and was first presented to the club
members' parents, a few prominent citizens of the
city, and a iudge. Soon after, it was given for the
hgih school students and faculty.
The sponsor of the Debate Club is Miss Harms.
The members are Martha Boyer, Harriett Edwards,
Shirley Hines, Janie Hitt, Dannie Jordan, David
Lepard, Warren McGrew, and Robert Rickard. The

The "A" Club, although one of the youngest organizations in
A. H. S., is one of the most active. lt was formed for those boys who

They began the '48-'49 school year with Hubert Shellenberger,
president, Glenn Beerline, vice-president, Willard Russell, secretary-
treasurer, and Bob Pilkington, sergeant-at-arms. At the end of the
semester Bill Giles, Fred Mackey, Raymond Gomez, Wayne Wood-
worth, and Charles Berry, were elected president, vice-president, sec-
retary, treasurer, and sergeant-at-arms respectively for the next year.
This year the "A"
Queen. The attendants
were presented at the
Club. Ruth Helen was
roses and the attendants were given the traditional blue and white
arm-bouquets of carnations. The queen and her attendants were
presented again at the colorful half-time ceremonies of the Scottsbluff-

Our chapter this year is the largest it has ever been. Along with
the large enrollment we have had a very heavy program completing
many interesting activities.
Three day camping trips were made last summer to the Black
Hills. These days were full of thrills and interesting experiences. The
boys worked during the previous school year to earn points so they
might be eligible to go.
Eleven boys represented our Chapter at the otficer's training
school at Gordon in December. Gene Brost, the district chairman,
was the presiding officer of the day. Charles Berry won highest
honors in the informational contest. Dwain Adam was chosen vice-
president of the day.
Gene Brost, Rodney Jensen, Charles Berry, Dwain Adam, Emil
Faber, and Clyde Boon attended 12 of the 13 sessions of the National
F. F. A. Convention at Kansas City. On their way the group visited
the Agricultural College, the U. N. city campus, the State Capitol
building and other points of interest in problems and farming condi-
tions in central and eastern Nebraska, southwestern Iowa, north-
western Missouri, and eastern Kansas. Kansas City vocational schools,
parks, drives, zoos, stockyards, and other businesses were visited. The
group was disappointed in not seeing the Alliance-Grand Island foot-
ball game Nov. 19.
In the pest eradication contest Gene Brost's side won with 12,495
points over Bill Koozer's side with 9,120 points. Leonard Peterson
was the high individual with 2,275 points.

These G. A. A. girls take part in basketball, field hockey, socker,
volley ball, baseball, and numerous other competitive games of which
basketball remains their favorite.
A point system, by which the girls are judged whether or not
they will receive a letter, was set up at the beginning of the year.
Money making proiects started early this year. Members of
G. A. A. sold balloons at the Alliance vs. Northeast football game and
whistles at the Armistice Day game.
The highlight of the year was the annual basketball tournament
at the City Auditorium January IA, 1949, Instead of G. A. A. playing

into two groups. One side was composed of seniors and freshman,

1948 Football Campaign
On the twenty-third of August, 1948, the components
of the 1948 football squad assembled with their revised
coaching staff to begin practice. Full of spirit and eager
to make the best season possible, 141 of the 255 boys at-
tending high school came out for the sport. They co-
operated well under the expert coaching of Zikmund, Kubi-
cek, Livingston, and Stofan and turned out to be one of
the best teams ever produced at Alliance.
The revised staff consisted of veteran coach, Allen H.
Zikmund, who introduced the T-formation to the team and
who turned out a great team in 1947. There was line
coach Clarence J. Kubicek, who was a partner to Zik at
last year's coaching toils, Lester Livingston, who graduated
from the University of Nebraska and was coaching at
Gothenburg High last year, and reserve coach, Lawrence
Stofan, who came here from Monessan, Pennsylvania, where
he was teaching last year.
The Bulldog ranks boasted only eight native lettermen
and three from outside towns. These eleven lettermen
were as follows: backfield men, Red Russell, Don Coupens,
Fred Mackey, Neil Stumbaugh, Hubie Shellenberger, and
Glen Beerline, and linemen, Bob Pilkington and Bob Steph-
ens. From Port Orchard, Washington, came letterman and
guard, LeRoy Buchanang from Benson High, Omaha, came
reserve letterman and end, Bill Giles, and from Custer,
South Dakota, came Ietterman and end, Charles Anderson,
all of whose abilities greatly helped the team strength.
These Bulldog lettermen plus a few others were destined
to carry the greater part of the team load and Pespon-
sibility and to build a favorable reputation of being real
football players no matter what the score.
The Alliance schedule was a tough one with many
outstanding teams on the list. Class B Chappell was sub-
stituted for Sterling, Colorado, in the 1948 schedule.
The Blue and White opened by losing a thriller at
Cheyenne and then came back with the needed experi-
ence to win five in a row over Lincoln N. E., Curtis, North
Platte, Chappell, and McCook. Then they lost their first
conference tilt to Kearney, held Scottsbluff, and gained a
share of the Western Big Ten honors. They lost the play-
off to state champions, Grand Island.
The 1948 Bulldog team was not one which was com-
posed of all-stars nor of giants,
team of boys that could work
operated to the utmost and as a
physical condition and constantly
sary to play winning football.
These Bulldogs finished the
state ratings and highly in the

ALLIANCE LOSES OPENER AT CHEYENNE
Alliance opened the 1948 football season at Cheyenne,
Wyoming, as definite underdogs. Cheyenne scored first
as Kinney passed to Olcott in the first quarter. Alliance
come back in the second quarter and battled to the 12
yard line from where Beerline passed to Giles for the tying
score. Red Russell converted. The drive was sparked by
the hard running of Fred Mackey, Hubie Shellenberger, and
Don Coupens. The two teams fought evenly until shortly
before the half when Van Horn threw a desperation screen
pass to Heaton. This put Cheyenne ahead 12-7 at the half.
The third quarter was all for Alliance. They went
ahead 13-12 as a result of an 88 yard drive culminated by
Shellenberger's 8 yard end run.
After outplaying and outdowning Cheyenne the entire
second half, the Bulldogs failed on downs late in the
fourth quarter and were forced to punt from their own 15.
Bob Baker, Cheyenne halfback, fielded the punt on his own
45 and scampered 55 yards for Cheyenne's winning touch-
The final score was, Alliance 13-Cheyenne 19.

ALLIANCE SUPRISES LINCOLN
The boys from the Capital City came west for one of
the headline games in state prep football.
The first quarter was even as each team battered back
and forth trying to get in the lead, but no score was made.
Lincoln opened the scoring with a pass, Bradsby to Hult-
berg, in the second quarter. The conversion was good,
making the halftime score, 7-0.
Northeast again hit paydirt early in the third quarter
when Bradsby, Northeast star, went off tackle for 6 yards.
This made the tally, 13-0. Alliance then took over the
show with Coupens and Shellenberger carrying the ball.
They advanced to the 12 yard line from where Coupens
scored. Red Russell passed to Giles for the conversion.
ln the fourth quarter the training and conditioning of
the teams began to show. The superior-conditioned Al-
liance line handled the N. E. line effectively. Beerline
climaxed a 60 yard drive by passing to Giles from 12 yards
out for the tying touchdown.
With the score knotted 13 all, Alliance drove steadily
to the 3 yard line from where Beerline crashed through
for the wining touchdown. The final score was, Alliance
19-Lincoln N. E.-13.

ALLIANCE ROLLS OVER CURTIS
Alliance went into the Curtis game a heavy favorite
and holding 4th place in the Nebraska state prep ratings.
The first half was even with Curtis scoring first on a full-
back smash over center. Alliance matched the touch down
with a 6 yard scoring run by Fred Mackey.
In the second quarter Curtis attempted a long goal line
pass. Hubie Shellenberger reached up and batted the ball
into the arms of a Curtis player who caught the ball and
scored. Later in the second quarter, Shellenberger, Mack-
ey, and Coupens teamed up to carry the ball to the Cur-
tis one yard line from where Neil Stumbaugh crashed to
score. Each team converted once' to make the halftime
The second half was all Alliance as Beerline scored,
after a punt exchange, on a quarter back sneak. Curtis
couldn't make any headway and punted to Alliance in their
territory. Beerline sneaked 10 yards and Coupens made
33 yards in 3 tries to set up a 3 yard touchdown crash by
Mackey a few plays later.
In the fourth quarter the superior conditioning of the
Bulldogs proved to be too much for the Aggies and Al-
liance was again in scoring position. Quarterback Beerline
ran the end for 10 yards and a touchdown. Bill Giles con-
verted to make the final score, 33-13.

ALLIANCE BLANKS NORTH PLATTE
Defending Western Big Ten champions, North Platte,
were victims of a 20-0 lacing by Alliance. Although the
North Platters were fired especially for this game, they
were not able to put up an effective fight against the
powerful Bulldogs of Alliance.
The first quarter was scoreless as both defenses stopped
all power and pass plays. In the second quarter Alliance
uncorked a passing attack that swept 55 yards to the
North Platte one yard line from where Hubie Shellenberger
plowed through for a touch down. This made the half-
time score, 6-0, in favor of Alliance.
The third quarter was slow for Alliance as North
Platte came back determined to make a showing. They
made 3 consecutive first downs to advance the ball to their
own 46 yard line. This was as far as they proceeded dur-
ing the whole game.
In the fourth quarter the Alliance backs took turns
carrying the ball, moving clear to the goal line. Beerline
sneaked for one yard and a touchdown. Bill Giles con-
verted. Later in the quarter, North Platte was attempting
to score by passing from their own 16 where Chuck Ander-
son, rangy Alliance end, intercepted. Alliance needed only
4 plays to score as Mackey drove the final 3 yards for a
touchdown. Bill Giles again converted and the final score
was 20-O. '

BULLDOGS HOLD CHAPPELI.
Chappell High was added to the 1948 Alliance sched-
ule to fill in for Sterling, Colorado, who could not arran
their schedule to play the annual game.
The first quarter was scoreless as the Alliance blocking
and running combination was not clicking. Although the
Bulldogs made 7 first downs in the first quarter, they did
Beerline opened the game scoring in the second quar-
ter 'th '
wi a one yard quarterback sneak, Giles converted and
the score remained 7-0 until halftime.
Alliance got back on their feet the second half with
scores by Mackey-3 yards through the center of the line,
a 60 yard pass play-Coupens to Nelson, and a 22 yard pass
-Beerline to Giles.
ln the fourth quarter Chappell sneaked in a t h-
down on the old "sleeper" play. The conversion was good
and the final score was 26-7.
Fred Mackey, iunior fullback, did an exceptional iob
of ball-carrying, gaining 176 yards himself, averaging I1
yards each time he carried the ball.

The Alliance-McCook game was a tough hard battle '
which the determination of the Bulldogs played a maior
part. It was a close game although Alliance held a great
statistical advantage. Beerline opened the scoring the sec-
ond quarter on a fake reverse end run. Faking to Coupens,
he kept the ball himself and bootlegged it wid

alf was rough, even and scoreless until
rea came in the 3rd quarter when
Carter returned a punt to the Alliance 26. A first down put
the ball on the Alliance 9. On the next play a McCook
back fumbled and B h '

KEARNEY DOWNS BULLDOGS
The Kearney Bearcats scored twice in the second
quarter as Alliance fumbled to their first Big Ten loss, I8-6.
Alliance started off with a bang as Mackey went off
guard for 70 yards, but the play was calied back. A few
plays later Stumbaugh was called back from a 30 yard end
run. From here on the Bulldogs couldn't seem to find them-
scelves and Kearney took advantage of every break to
score two second period touchdowns for the Bearcats.
Alliance only score came in the third quarter after the
Bulldogs had finally stopped the Kearney offense. The
Bearcats had the ball deep in their own territory but failed
to make any yards. They went into punt formation in an
attempt to get the ball out of Kearney territory. Tom Her-
man, senior Alliance tackle, broke through and blocked the
ball which Fred Mackey fell on in the end zone. Kearney
also scored in the third period on a pass play. This was
the final touchdown. Neither team threatened to score
during the remainder of the game.
ALLIANCE TRIUMPHS IN FINALE
The traditional Armistice Day game between Alliance
and Scottsbluff was heralded as one of the finest contests
to be played in the state. The sports writers over the
state declared the heavier Scottsbluff's outfit to be much
too strong and experienced for the Bulldogs.
The Alliance boys were quiet and determined as they
awaited the kickoff. From the moment Beerline received
the kickoff on the goal line and returned it to his own 35,
there was no way of denying victory to the impressive

An Alliance back crashes into the Scottsbluff line for a

From here Stumbaugh and Mackey battered to the one
yard line. Beerline then sneaked the remaining yard. The
teams fought evenly for a few plays as the ball changed
hands twice. Then Scottsbluff's Barchus exploded through
the center and ran 65 yards for a score. Minor's conver-
sion made the score 7-6 at the first quarter.
The second quarter started off with a series of fum-
bles and interceptions. Alliance wound up with the ball,
but neither team could manage to gain in the second
quarter and the half ended 7-6.
Scottsbluffs received the half-time kickoff but was un-
able to gain through the fighting line of Alliance. Shellen-
berger returned the punt 30 yards and the inspired Bulldog
backfield drove to the 38 from where Stumbaugh went
off tackle to score. Fighting to regain their lead, the
Bearcats fought to the one foot line. On the next play
Sabala fumbled and senior guard, Norman Driml, re-
covered in the end zone. Alliance took the ball on the 20
but failed to gain and punted to Scottsbluff in Bulldog ter-
ritory. The quarter ended.
Scottsbluff started the fourth quarter with a pass that
netted a touchdown. Alliance now fought to the I0 yard
line with Shellenberger and Stumbaugh making beautiful
runs. From here Coupens used two plays to score. Scotts-
bluff made a final attempt to score but fumbled under the
charging fierceness of the Bulldogs. Alliance then moved
to the AI yard line from where Hubert Shellenberger
climaxed a wonderful game with a scintillating end run as
he scored the last Bulldog touchdown of the season.
ALLIANCE LOSES PLAYOFF
The Big Ten Conference playoff between Alliance and
Grand Island was won decisively by the Islanders. Alliance
had iourneyed to the third city the previous week-end only
to be stranded for four days as a result of a blizzard.
Grand Island won the toss and elected to receive.
The Bulldogs were unable to stop a nine-play drive which
extended to the goal line for a score. Alliance came back
with a forward pass lateral-end run, Beerline to Shellen-
berger, which covered 58 yards. The Bulldogs fought
from here to the seven and it looked as if the game would
be a close one. Fred Mackey attempted a pass with high
hopes of scoring, but Bob Reynolds intercepted and ran 98
yards for the second Islander touchdown. The following
kickoff afforded another break for Grand Island as the low
kicked ball bounced off an Alliance lineman and was re-

1948 ALLIANCE TRACK SEASON
The 1948 tarck season opened with an enthusiastic
group of candidates reporting to coaches Zikmund and Ku-
bicek. Lettermen reporting on the 65 man squad were
seniors, .lack Krause, Bill Brown, Marvin Boyer, Louis Man-
delberg, and Wilburn Timblin, and iuniors, Hubie Shellen'
berger, John'l.eon, Don Coupens, and Neil Stumbaugh.
Along with these lettermen and with many of the "un-
knowns" coming through with brilliant performances, the
1948 Alliance High School Track Squad was proclaimed the
greatest in the history of the school. Under the guidance
of "Zik" and "Kubie", an evenly balanced squad went
forth to gain the Big Ten Championship, District Class A
Championship, and finally the coveted State Class A Champ-
ionship, the first the school has ever won.
The following boys won a track letter on the 1948
squad: seniors, Jack Krause lcaptainl, Jim Worden, Marvin
Boyer, Frank O'Connor, Bill Darnell, iuniors, Glenn Beer-
line, Don Coupens, John Leon, Dick Griffis, Hubie Shellen-
berger, Bill Nelson, Jesse Moreno, George Rogowski, Neil
Stumbaughp and sophomores, Bill Giles, Raymon Gomez,
and Charles Berry. Much credit is due these boys who co-
operated so well, worked so hard, and had the earnest de-
sire to win. The long hours of practice and training paid
them great dividends as their achievements show, We are
proud of you, Champions!

scored 413A points to the winners 59V2 points.
Two records were set in the relay events, both by Al-
liance. ln the 280 yard high hurdle shuttle relay, Boyer,

The taste of victory proved sweet to the Bulldogs, and
they continued their winning ways by upsetting the dope
bucket and winning the rugged Big Ten Championship.
Alliance scored an all time record high number of points,
60 23-60, compared to runner-up Grand Island, who had
52 3-5 points. Scoring in all but three events, the deter-
mined Bulldog squad even surprised themselves. Jim Wor-
den, the find of the early season, took the 880 yard run in
record time of 2:04.7. Glenn Beerline broad iumped 21'

As a capstone to the excellent i948 track season the
wellabalanced Alliance cinder squad traveled to Lincoln

was the choice of the sports writers even as the second
day of the meet began. After the first day, Alliance was
in tenth place ,but following the field events the next
morning, in which they grabbed I8 points, the picture be-
gan to brighten. Points in the 440 hurdles, 880, and fin-
ally little John Leon's brilliant mile sewed the meet up and
Alliance had her first State Track Championship. Omaha

One of our most important activities in A. H. S. is our
high school band. This band is composed of 55 members
varying from the eighth to the twelfth grades.
Membership is gained by the completion of an exam
which is composed of thirteen parts.
The marching band of 52 members displays intricate
maneuvers during the half of every home football game. Each
year this band usually attends one out of town football game
and performs at the half. The out of town game attended
this year was at North Platte. The band was also favored
with a trip to Grand Island this year in order to boost the
boys in the Big Ten Championship game.
The band rally shows its school spirit by playing good,
snappy music at all our ball games and rallies. Two pep bands
under student directors furnish the music for the basketball
games and the twirlers show their skill during the half time at
One of the highlights of the year is the Scottsbluff-AL
Iiance Band Clinic. This year the clinic was held at Scotts-
bluff on March 2 and 3. Dale Hallack of Chadron State Teach-
ers College was the guest conductor. The combined bands of
the two schools made a fine band of l36 musicians.
Five band members were chosen to participate in the All
State Clinic Band held in Omaha on November 18, l9, and 20.
Many of the band members attend the National Band
Camp held at Chadron State Park each summer.
