HIS year, 1950, marks the midpoint of the
twentieth centuryg and although colored with dram-
atic significance, it still is merely another page in the
book of Time.
Not only does this page tabulate the records of
the past, but it holds within its contents assuring
prognostications for the future.
We, the yearbook staff, present this, "The 1950
Bulldog", to the students of A. H. S." We have en-
joyed portraying these scenes of school life.
We offer it in the hope that on its pages will be
preserved those memories which so stimulate the
present and predict the future.
Grateful acknowledgment is made to Miss Jean-
ette Fox, faculty artistg Leonard Glarum, profession-
al artistg and Dannie Jordan, student artist.

To Students and Faculty of the
hlliance High School:
In this ywar of 1550, the mid-point of tho TweniiP'h
Century, we find mursvlves in a peried where thv yrin-
ciples cf Demccracy are undergoing their crsatest test.
Kemocracy is nmt just a nine-lsttex word defining our
type of government but is a may of life. Here in the
United States we believe in the dignity of the individ-
ual. We sirens his responsibilities tc his fellow men.
If thst concept is to be maintained, then every nmvxican
citizen, young and old, musf work dovctsdly for it.
Truex words were never wr5fLen than thuse whith appear
over the main entrance of our Nebraska Cayitol -- HThe
salvation of ine state is fha watchfuiness in The citizen.H
Not long ago I beanie high school student say, HA watian
and a way of life -- depend QD us.U It is hearteninq to
hear such words. It is inspiring to know that the Annual
Staff of ons mf our fine h gh schocls is dedicating ifs
ysarbool to Democracy. Th future is yours. MaPe it

est grade in his Roman History class. He gets one of the highest grades, but his teacher cannot believe
it and believes that he has cheated. Along with this some band instruments have been stolen and when
a belonging ot Henry's is found in the band room, he is suspected.
Henry is found innocent because the instruments are lound at a pawn shop and George Bigelow,
who was desperate lor a tuxedo, is the guilty guy.
Everything ends happily with Henry and Barbara going to the dance.

Y-Teen Club Is Branch of Y.W.C.A.
The Girl Reserve organization was first
started in Alliance in 1927 by Miss Grace
Spacht. In 1947, the Girl Reserves changed their
name to Y-Teens to show a closer relation to
the Y-W-C-A. The cabinet which is made up
of the officers and committee chairmen handle
the affairs of the club.
Each year there are the Patteran and the
Caira besides the parties during regular meet-
ings for most of the important holidays. The
Y-Teen group takes part in many civic and
social events each year. As our main money-
making project we put on the Orpheum which
consisted of acts by the students. It was pre-
sented in the old vaudeville fashion. It is hoped
to make this a yearly affair.
Four meetings are held each month. The
Alliance Y-Teens helped with the program of
the Area VI Conference which was held in
Scottsbluff on October 8. Heart-Sister Week is
observed the week of February 14th.
The officers and committee chairmen of
our club are: president-Shirley Hines, vice-

Our motto is "Sharing the Paths to Chris-

there is a desire among girls to better them-
selves with Christian Fellowship.

Alliance's Blue and White opened its gridiron season with a bang
by ousting Ainsworth, 27-7. Don Patton, sophomore, playing his first
game with the Bulldogs, ran the opening kickoff 78 yards for a touch-
down in the opening minute of the game. Five minutes later Fred
Mackey blocked a kick from the one-yard line and Leonard Becken-
bach pounced on it in the end zone for another score. Early in the
second period the Bulldogs scored after a series of passes and ground
runs. Patton carried the ball from the 10 yard line to score.
The only Ainsworth score came when Atkins punt went only 10
yards against a stiff wind and rested on the 25 yard line. Two passes
set the ball on the one-yard line where an Ainsworth lad plunged
over the goal. The final Bulldog score came on a 67 yard drive. The
locals pushed to the 27 yard line where Atkins reeled a pass to Giles,
who was soon over the goal.
Continuing their schedule, the locals seemed to have stiffer com-
petition at Cheyenne the following weekend when the Indians con-
quered the Bulldogs, 33 to 13. Cheyenne showed their intentions
early in the opening quarter when they took a 7-0 lead after 10 min-
utes of play. The Indians worked the ball to the 38 yard line where
a dash over right tackle put them over the goal. The point was good.
The second Indian score came soon after when an Alliance pass was
intercepted on the 45 to end the quarter. Three plays after the second
period started, Cheyenne scored again to have a 14 to 0 advantage.
Don Patton snagged an Indian pass and started Alliance toward
their first score. After a 79 yard drive. Mackey drove over and Giles'
kick made the score, 14-7. Cheyenne took the next kickoff and
marched to a 21-7 lead. Alliance cut the margin to 21 to 13 early in
the second half. A series of passes put the Bulldogs on the 4 yard line
where Giles smashed over for the touchdown.
Cheyenne again took thc kickoff and scored in seven plays. This
gave the Indians a 27 to 13 lead. The Indians also scored in the fourth
quarter and the final score rested, 33-13.

Coach Zikmund's Bulldogs held off the Curtis Aggies and gained
two touchdowns to win I3 to 0. Alliance was unable to drive over
the scoring line until late in the third period. In the latter part of the
third quarter the Bulldogs carried the pigskin to the opponents 27
where Mackey rounded his own left end for the first score of the game.
The second score came on a left end run also but not under the
same circumstances. Alliance took the kickoff on the ten and a pass
from Giles to Mackey set up the following play. I-Iashman received the
hand-off and went around his left end, galloping seventy yards for
the score. The extra point was no good.
North Platte-October 7
All scoring was done in the second quarter as North Platte edged
the Bulldogs, 13 to 6, in a Western Big Ten Conference contest. The
first quarter ended with the locals on the three-yard line and as yet
there was no score in the game. Two plays after the quarter mark

North Platte soon recovered an Alliance fumble on the local 32
yard line where they passed their way to a touchdown. Ryan kicked
the point to put the Platters ahead, 7 to 6. Eight plays later the
Platters cinched their lead by making the score, 13 to 6. This score
did not change throughout the remaining half of the game.

Alliance's line couldn't cope with a quartet of hard-running backs
and as a result the Bisons ran away with 28 to 7 Big Ten Conference

period started from the McCook I9 yard line where a Bison snatched
an Alliance pass. On the seventh play the Bison again scored.

Alliance gave Kearney a touchdown in the first period, then fum-
bled five times when they were close to the goal line so the Bearcats
won the Big Ten Conference tilt, 6 to O. With forty seconds remain-
ing in the first period, the Bearcats made the only score of the game
when they recovered an Alliance fumble. Kearney plunged over from
the five where they had recovered the Bulldog fumble. The kick was
no good. Alliance marched seventy-three yards in eight plays on the
next kickoff to the three-yard line. On the next play the Bulldogs
fumbled only three yards from a touchdown.
ln the third period the Bulldogs halted a Kearney drive within
striking distance of paydirt. The Bearcats could make no gain and
Alliance took over on downs on their own 9 yard linc. The Bulldogs
began another drive upon recovery of the ball. They marched to the
30 where they were forced to punt. The ball bounced around on the
opposite 35 where Gomez recovered for Alliance. Mackey scamperecl
to the I7 and to the 13 but a fumble ruined the Bulldogs chances.
Alliance ended its season by taking an unexpected I3-6 win over
the Scottsbluff Bearcats in the traditional Armistice Day battle. Alli-
ance outplayed the Bearcats all the way even though the Bluffs scored
first. The Bulldogs trailed until the fourth period, 6 to 0. Early in
the final period Mackey made a quick kick on a third down into the
Scottsbluff end zone. On the following play Alliance recovered a
fumble on the l7 yard line, and four plays later hit paydirt. A pass
from Mackey to Giles tied the score. Giles then kicked a perfect place
kick and the Bulldogs lead 7 to 6.
This was not enough. The locals cinched their win when Don
Patton snatched a Bearcat pass on the 46 yard line and before anyone
realized what had happened he was over for the second touchdown.
Giles kick was blocked but this gave Alliance a I3 to 6 edge over the
valley boys. Twice in the second period Alliance threatened but could
not give the extra push to get over the goal line. The first time they
worked the ball to the Bluffs six-yard line before they lost the ball on
downs. Next Mackey plucked the ball out of Allen's arms on the
Bearcat 34 yard line and moved to the 19. Again Scottsbluff took
over on downs,

Under the direction ot Mr. William Steiner, the
A Cappella Choir ot Alliance High School has made
steady progress during the 1949-50 school year.
The lorty-voice choir has presented two concerts
during the year. The iirst, in conjunction with the
grade school music system, was presented December
21, as the annual Christmas program. The spring con-
cert was given March 19 at the City Auditorium.
Probably the biggest event ot the year was the
Choir Clinic held at Scottsbluff, Nebraska, February
14 and 15. Mr. David Foltz from the University oi
Nebraska directed the combined voices of the Scotts-
bluft, Minatare, and Alliance Choirs. Small groups
and soloists from Alliance also took part in the Clinic.
As a deviation from notes and measures, the
choir holds two social events a year, the Christmas
Caroling Party and a spring party.

There are fifty members in marching band and
approximately titty-tive students in the concert band.
All members are required to take a series of exams
to quality tor admission into the band. A snappy
marching band performed at the halt-time ot each
tootball game. The only out-of-town game attended
this year was the annual Scottsbluff-Alliance Armis-
tice Day game. Older band members composed a
small pep band which played at the basketball games.
Band concerts were presented on February 19
and May 7. Four band members represented Alliance
at the Nebraska State Music Clinic held in Norfolk,
November 17, 18 and 19. March 27 and 28 marked
the dates of the annual Scottsblutt-Alliance Clinic
held in Alliance this year. Guest conductor was Iohn
Roberts from South High School in Denver.

nished music for the junior class play and the American Education Week program. With the addition
of Woodwinds, brass, and percussion, a full orchestra was formed beginning the second semester.
The annual Scottsbluff-Alliance Orchestra Clinic was held at Scottsbluff, April 11-12. Three orchestra
members made the trip to Norfolk, Nebraska, for the Nebraska State Music Clinic in November.
Membership into the High School Orchestra is determined by an examination which is given by a

the past four years. It plays at the request of the various social and
business groups throughout the vicinity. The Quartet performed by in-
vitation at the Music Division of the Teachers' Convention, at Sidney,
