Nevertheless we invite you to play the game and tread the maze through a day in A. H. S. At eight o’clock the door of A. H. S. swings open. Feet crowd the halls; some hurrying, some lagging, some pushing toward the office. Another day begins, a day of purposeful activitiy for all who enter. ''Hi” and "Good morning" can be heard in the halls as the students greet each other; minutes tick by; then all hurry off for first period classes. The halls of A. H. S. are deserted. "Didja study? Do ya think it'll be hard? Wish I’d not gone to the show last night!” Winston Deisch and Mary Scoggin are waiting for the test questions in Chemistry.

Sally Mintzer and Mrs Merdin-ger, girls' counselor, discuss next semester's registration. A. H. S. girls arc always welcome to talk things over with Mrs. MerdingerNOON . . . The bell rings; again the halls are crowded with students, hurrying to their lockers, hurrying from the buildings, hurrying away. For an hour the building is quiet. Then back the students come They come singly, in pairs, in groups. They pause to look at the bulletin board and to read the announcements .They laugh together, talk together, and once more return to classes. Hammering, drilling, sawing, measuring. painting, gluing, sanding, buffing. These are some of the things that go on in the shop room. Paul Jessen and Larry Cole take pride in fine workmanship. Mmmmm . . . good' Can you smell those fresh Favorite period of the day is the activity period . . the first twenty minutes cinnamon rolls? Cheryl Davison has gone to get an after lunch.

AND DISPLAY TRADITIONAL BULLDOG SPIRIT Coaches Borg, Webb, and Larsen discuss problems they share as A. H S. football directors. THE MIGHTY BULLDOGS A good description of Coach Webb's '57 Bulldogs would be full of words such as: "successful," "progressive," and "inspired.” Following the disastrous 'S6 season, the Bulldogs started a powerful drive to regain the position of prestige which they had formerly held. This comeback was hailed by both students and alumni. The victory in the initial game with Ainsworth sparked our team on to four victories, four defeats, and one tie.These boys were Alliance's leading backfielders in the '57 season. They arc: Dick Montague, Jerry Boness, Ray Hesse, Bob Duskin. and Rich Perez AINSWORTH vs. ALLIANCE The Alliance Bulldogs made up for lost time and games as they tackled Ainsworth with a vengeance for a final score of 32-0, Alliance on top. The superior defense and driving of Coach Webb's team converted the game into an Alliance runaway. Evert Smith started the Alliance scoring spree with,a 35 yard T.D. and only minutes later a 50 yard run for another score. Although the Ainsworth team made a noble effort they remained scoreless throughout the game as the Alliance eleven consistenly kept them beyond the Alliance 20 yard line. ALLIANCE vs. SIDNEY With the season under way and the bulldogs in high spirit the second game of the season was captured by the A.H.S. gridders with a final score of 12-7. Sidney's early attack and touchdown were met and surprised by an overwhelming strong Alliance line. Extraordinary blocking assured the success of Alliance's offense and good coverage of Sidney's down-field receivers spelled defeat for Sidney’s aerial game. Jerry Boness scored both Alliance touchdowns on short drivers into the center of the Maroon line. The Maroons were an experienced team but Bulldog determination proved to be more than their match and earned a hard fought victory for Alliance. Alliance's outstanding linemen who bore the brunt of the Bulldog defense are: Roger MacNeill. Jerry’ Beagle, George Tutt. Bob Laing, Don Shimp, John Moore, Gary Lewis, and Tom Wright.OGALLALA vs. ALLIANCE A favored Ogallala team put an end to the two-game winning streak of the Alliance Bulldogs with an overpowering score of 30-0, Ogallala victorious. Picked to win over Alliance, the heavier and very aggressive Ogallala team was the undoing of the Bulldogs and cost them a Western Conference game. Although the Alliance team had good spirit and courage they were outplayed by the more experienced Indians. The Indians' quarterback, Harry Boss, led his team on a forceful scoring spree and scored 3 of Ogallala's TD's himself. The Alliance Bulldogs never mustered an effective threat but they remained determined and resolute throughout the game. NORTH PLATTE vs. ALLIANCE Victory returned to the Bulldogs in the 4th tilt of the season as they tangled with North Platte. The Alliance team racked up a 26-14 margin to win their first Big Ten Conference game in three years. Alliance first scored only seven minutes after the game began, on a sneak by Boness. An interception and a Platter fumble helped set up two more TD's for Alliance; and later in the half Montague pulled down a second and final score of the evening for Alliance. In the last half North Platte mustered an offense to gain 2 touchdowns but were unable to present an effective threat. Montague drives for extra yardage. Boness carries, assisted by Shimp, Tutt, and Montague. Student managers Don Hobbs, Paul Jessen. and Jary Phillip mend equipment. (George Peterson not shown). CHADRON vs. ALLIANCE The Chadron-Alliance game provided a Parent's Night crowd with a real thriller. Chadron’s 14-con-secutive-win record was smashed by a score of 13-13. Chadron's Bob Loury made both Chadron's TD's. He also scored one of the extra points, failing in the other. Jerry Boness carried for Alliance's first touchdown on a short march. Dick Montague made the extra point; later he scored the tying touchdown in the first quarter. Montague's plunge was inches short on the extra point attempt. Extremely good defenses prevented further scoring and ended the game in a tic. 47 McCOOK vs. ALLIANCE The McCook Bison scored a narrow and indecisive victory over Alliance, capturing honors with a 34-30 score. The Bison accummulated a 5 T.D. lead before the Bulldogs were able to acquire a single score. After a sluggish first half the Bulldogs exploded a closing offense that threatened to turn defeat into victory. Alliance was threatening to score the winning T. D. as time ran out. Evert Smith carries for Alliance. KEARNEY vs. ALLIANCE The Bearcats proved to be a formidable opponent for the lighter Alliance eleven. The Bulldogs' hopes for a homecoming victory were shattered by a final score of 19-2, Kearney on top. The Bearcats had completed their scoring by the end of the half but a strong defense held their earlier established lead for them through the remainder of the game. The unfortunate Bulldogs lost valuable yardage and initiative as a result of fumbles and incompleted passes. Their only score came early in the third quarter when the Kearney quarterback was cornered in the end zone for a safety. Bulldog spirit remained good throughout the game. SCOTTSBLUFF vs. ALLIANCE The hopeless Bulldogs were subdued by a fierce Scottsbluff team. The Bearcats never let up, ending the game with an overpowering 65-6 for an easy victory. The early loss of Senior quarterback Jerry Boness, due to an injur)', took the sting out of the Alliance club and spelled its eventual defeat. Alliance managed to muster its only successful attack on a remarkable kickoff return by Dick Montague in the third quarter. Although the Scottsbluff eleven played an aggressive game from the beginning, the Bulldogs maintained consistently good spirit, never losing nerve or hope. Alliance forms a tight defense. GERING vs. ALLIANCE The determined Bulldogs tacked an appropriate ending on a successful season by walloping Gering 20-0. Despite the loss of several senior letter-men due to injuries the Alliance team, behind the quarterbacking of Dick Perez, forged its way to victory. Dick Montague paced the Alliance attack by scoring two T. D.’s. Dick also ran a Gering punt back 96 yards, only to have the play nullified by a clipping penalty. Evert Smith accounted for one T. D. and the extra-point. Bob Duskin carried for the second successful conversion. Outstanding pn defense were underclassmen John Moore, George Tutt, and Denny Christensen.'57 RESERVE RECORD Alliance Sidney Alliance North Platte Alliance Torrington Alliance Hemingford Alliance Scottsbluff Alliance Chadron Alliance Chadron Prep 21 Back row: D.

As seventh graders we became impressed with changing classes ... In our eighth grade year wc joined several clubs ... As freshmen we heard of the marvels of senior high and first met the class of ’58 . . . During our sophomore year we became more accustomed to high school . . . and, as juniors we were playing a larger role in our cities’ affairs. Now it is hard to believe that we are at last seniors . . . we enjoy many privileges and senior affairs . . . And now as we look into the future, we wish to thank the faculty for their devoted and tireless efforts in guiding us through these six years. Wait, thou child of hope, for Time shall teach thee all things. MARTIN FORQULAR Tl PPERSCHOOL BOARD AND SUPERINTENDENT ORIGINATE POLICIES SCHOOL BOARD Checking new school equipment are Dr. Robert Morgan. Mr. Matt Felton. Mr. Albert Reddish, Mr. Kirt Smith, Mr. James Keebaugh. and Mr. Gene Neuswanger. 60IN KEEPING WITH LOCAL PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE Schools undoubtedly give their students as many choices, either wise or foolish, as any institution or form of government within the United States. Wise selections in both subject matter and activities are a responsibility of the school and the home. If this responsibility is shirked, the effects are apparent in each student’s later life and achievements. Conscious action and definite aims must be the tale of the goals of the two bodies, the home, and the school. g.7?7. Superintendent of SchoolsMr. Trout, junior high school principal. Mr. May. senior high school guidance director, and Mr. Bruce, senior high school principal, get together on one of their busy afternoons to look over the second semester schedule. 62 St ENGLISH Perhaps the most valuable course in our high school is English. Literature, short stories, grammar, and term themes aid us in preparation for all careers. English plays a major part in all walks of life; therefore four years arc required for graduation. From the expressions on their faces, these teachers, Miss Wacek, Mrs. Merdinger, Mrs. Cox, and Mrs. Fiebig, seem to find their work quite amusing. FACULTY STRENGTHENS OUR COMMUNICATIVE ARTS ENGLISH Junior High English classes teach the students to use their language more correctly. Oral and written communication is stressed and practiced in these grades. Many devices are employed to make the students understand the need of being acquainted with literature and the right to call language an intimate friend. Miss Turgeon, Miss Aden, Mrs. Boner, and Miss Williams appear to be thinking about the next grammar test. 63FOREIGN LANGUAGES Languages form the common basis for national and international friendships. The study of foreign languages enables the students to understand and to appreciate their own language. Even though the students do not obtain the native accent they will have the understanding and the appreciation of both languages. Latin and Spanish are the courses offered in this field. Miss Aden and Mrs. Fiebig are relaxing after a long day's work of teaching. VOCATIONAL TRAINING Creating and working with the hands plays an important part in life. Students have this opportunity in vocational agriculture, homemaking, and industrial arts. The modern and adaptable equipment used in these departments makes the courses much more useful and interesting for the students. Mr. Clark, Miss Hoover, and Mr. Ware are discussing common problems, while standing in front of a display of seeds and agricultural magazines. 64 LIBRARIANS The libraries are used by classes, groups, and individuals doing research or recreational reading. Special activities of organizations or classes are often attractively featured on the bulletin boards. There are three student librarians who aid the regular librarians. Mrs. Andrews and Mrs. Myers are leafing through a couple of new books that were added to the Junior High library this year. Junior High students, as well as the whole town, were excited about the new band sweaters which Mr. Toenjes shows to Mr Blindc and Mr. Harriss. MUSIC During almost every period of the day a person is able to hear music in either of the school buildings. The music department provides chorus, choir, band, orchestra, and music theory in Senior High. Junior Band and chorus are offered in Junior High. The knowledge and appreciation of music that these courses give prepare students for future life, as well as for their chosen professions. THEY PREPARE US FOR SATISFACTORY LIVING Mr. Nelson, in a typical pose, looks on as Mrs. Glarum tries out one of the new typewriters that were added to the typing room this year. COMMERCIAL The commercial department offers two years of shorthand, two years of typing, and one year of bookkeeping. These subjects give training to the students so that they may keep up in the competitive world when they enter their chosen vocations. All of these subjects are elective. 65Mr. Carr. Miss Burns, Mr. Smith, and Mrs. Nelson look on while Mrs. Ware explains a safety chart used in Freshman mathematics. MATHEMATICS Two years of mathematics are required for graduation. Our school provides the students with an excellent program and a variety of courses including general mathematics, consumers math, algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, and trigonometry. Math education obtained in A. H. S. is found to be of many practical uses. THEY CHALLENGE US TO SEEK TRUTH AND KNOWLEDGE SCIENCE The dissections, experiments, and visual aids used in the science department make the study of our environment much more interesting. Biology, chemistry, physics, and general science are offered to open new fields of learning. Students are always striving to unlock the secrets of the universe. Mr Peterson, Mr. Sanderson, Mr. Maier, Mr. Brown, and Mr. Johnson appear to be enjoying a salamander which belongs to the General Science Department. 66Coaches Maier, Webb, Larsen, Borg, Carr, and Wheeler are enjoying a chat. ATHLETICS The athletic program of Junior and Senior High is w e 11-rounded and complete. A full slate of scheduled games keeps 160 boys busy in football season. Basketball has full swing in the winter months with 5 5 boys participating. Track, in the spring, interests approximately 180 boys. Miss Woodhams, girls’ physical education teacher, tosses the ball as Mr. Borg, athletic director, and Mr. Webb, boys' physical education teacher, give advice. PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND INTRAMURAL The physical education and intramural programs of our school both stress development of the individuals. All students are encouraged to participate in inter-s c h o o 1 athletics and enjoy good sportsmanship as well as individual achievement. wSOCIAL SCIENCE "The American public school is the principal training ground for informed American citizenship; what is taught in the classroom today shapes the sort of country we shall have decades hence”—Dwight D. Eisenhower. Our high school offers world history, American history, civics, and sociology. Two years of social science are required for graduation. Mr. Bedell, Mr. Larsen, and Mr. Wheeler are evidently planning a lesson on Europe or else a vacation trip. THEY INSPIRE OUR LOYALTY TO ALLIANCE HIGH Mrs. Lichty, Miss Christensen, Mrs. Austen, and Mr. Dewey enjoy a brief relaxation period in which they catch up on the daily news. SOCIAL SCIENCE World geography, American history, and geography of Nebraska are offered in Junior High. The interest of the students is held by a variety of visual aids and the use of unique teaching methods. Delving into the past and keeping abreast of the present keeps eager young students ready to help guide the future science developments. CLASSESD. Allen T. Alvarado S. Amen G. Anderson T. Anderson T.

I hope the 1957-58 Bulldog will always bring its readers never-to-be-forgotten memories, whether it is opened one year, ten years, or twenty-five years hence. The staff sincerely thanks Mrs. Alice Nelson and Miss Ellen Christensen, as our advisors, for being so patient with us and giving us encouragement when things all seemed to go wrong. They were always ready to help us no matter how busy they were and regardless of the time of day or night. We all extend our good wishes to them for the coming years as advisors of the future annuals and hope that they always enjoy it as much as they did this year. I also want to express my personal appreciation to Sharon Morehead. Carol Nelson, Betty Nye, Carol Lore, Jim Trabert, Don Moore, Bob Knight, Bob Retke, Marta Myers, and Merri Moscrip, the other staff members. I have enjoyed knowing and working with such an enthusiastic and co-operative group. Special recognition is due to our hard working and faithful members of the advertising staff. They have spent many hours outside of school working for this annual without much public acknowledgement. Without them our annual w’ould not exist, so again 1 say thanks to these unsung heroes. Also here I w'ould also like to thank the community and businessmen for being our Bulldog supporters and the faculty, administration, and students of Alliance High School for their co-operation. Big bouquets go to Mr. Glenn Worley and Mr. Dale Slaymaker for their excellent and useful advice. They have been ready and willing photographers who could develop pictures and layouts into something big and beautiful. 1 he seniors on the staff join me in wishing Mrs. Nelson and the next year's staff the best of everything. We hope that they enjoy working together on the annual next year as much as we have and we hope that they will also enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done.
