s !THE 1959 BULLDOG. . . THAT EACH MAY CHERISH HIS FREEDOM . . . The seasons change; the months grow into years; the years roll into decades, but year in and year out, A.H.S. students mature in freedom’s climate. Well nourished democracy is a trademark of A.H.S. The memory of this democratic way will encourage graduates to protect the freedom enjoyed through public education.Dear Mrs. Nelson, We appreciate the contribution you have made to us, as students, and to Alliance High School. There are few who have graduated from A.H.S. during the years of your tenure who have not known your instruction. Your record of service includes teaching girls’ physical education and mathematics. In addition to these classes for eleven years you have sponsored our annual, THE BULLDOG. Our school and our community are proud of THE BULLDOG. Under your guidance, this annual has achieved an All-American rating the last three years. Without the standards of excellence set by you, this recognition could not have been earned. The students of your classes feel this same high standard of performance is required of them. We are realistic enough to know that we need the incentive; without it we would wander. There is no record of the hours you have spent encouraging us to do our best, but they are many. For your service above and beyond that required, we say thank you. In sincere appreciation for your devotion to the students of A.H.S., we dedicate the 1959 BULLDOG to you. Annual StaffTHAT PUBLIC EDUCATION MAY FLOURISH . . .“Hail to our Alma Mater.

TO SHELTER WORTHWHILE LEARNING .. .“Caught Studying” With thought of college years ahead, Wally Seiler digs in. “No Cutline?” Lorraine Holthus has found working on the SPUD a practical experience in journalism. Proud of their academic achievements, students find studying the most important business in school. Learning is the key that unlocks the door of the future. In A.H.S. the individual needs of each student are considered and each is encouraged to plan a well-balanced course of study. “Sick Yesterday?” A person has to learn that he can’t fool our office secretary, Mrs. Margaret Copple, and the school nurse, Mrs. Thelma Merritt. 7“Catch That Ball!" Student referees are trained for leadership in Miss Nona Woodhams physical education classes “Almost Finished” “Hand up those streamers, Dick Thomas,” says Pat Rust. Tonchita Carpenter offers a Coke to each for his appreciated leadership. Here are some A.H.S. leaders. They are participating in school activities. Opportunities for leadership are many and range from classroom activities to highly organized extracurricular events. In A.H.S. each student is encouraged to develop his capacity for leadership. Nearly all students participate in extracurricular activities. ... TO ENCOURAGE CONSTRUCTIVE LEADERSHIP . .. “I Object!” says Jerry Beagle. Mrs. Merdinger’s students leam Parliamentary procedure through actual practice.Within the walls of A.H.S. students discover the meaning of loyalty. Loyalty to our school, loyalty to higher ideals, loyalty to our flag and country, loyalty to those principles upon which our nation was founded and grew strong—all are discovered. “Let Me In!” These boys loyally uphold the traditions of A.H.S. and inspire all students to support the team. “Loyal Office Assistant” This office, the nerve center of A.H.S., maintains an actual interest in the progress of each student. Karin Frost is one of the many student helpers. V . .. TO ENCOURAGE DEEP-ROOTED LOYALTY . .. “Planning Ahead” Helen McDonald, president of Y-Teens, and J. D. Smith, president of Hi-Y, discuss plans for the Easter Sunrise Service.TO PROVIDE WELL-EARNED LEISURE“That’s in the book!” Karen Brock and Denny Christensen gain gold nuggets of wisdom from reading during their leisure hours. A.H.S. offers a variety of leisure time activities that can satisfy the interests of nearly all the students. The choice is yours: athletics, music, journalism, Hi-Y, Y-Teens, dramatics, F.F.A.—all are organized activities. Some prefer to fill leisure hours with personal projects; A.H.S. offers guidance here, too. “Moscow? Really?” Kirby Dunsmore’s leisure hours with his radio bring him great satisfaction. “Ah, Found It!” It takes much leisure time to restore order to Sharon Henkel’s locker. 13BOARD OF EDI CATION Left to right: Mr. A.

I extend our congratulations to each student who has achieved another year of formal education. High quality of education to which we must aspire in these times cannot be achieved without sacrifice. The cost of education is great, but so are the benefits. The benefits of good education, the strength it imparts to us as individuals and as a nation, were never more important or more needed than now.

There is the excitement and thrill of attending football games, of watching the band parade on the field, of burning the “A”, of attending the Pep Club Formal, of sharing the solemnity of a Y-Teen ceremonial. Their dreams are of all the experiences that make school life enjoyable. The freedom to choose not only extracurricular activities but also school courses is their American heritage; it is theirs to pass to the future.

Shortly after the school year starts, even before the excitement of the “first days” fades, preparations begin for one of the most important all-school activities of the year—Homecoming. Clubs and classes co-operate in building beautiful floats. The band prepares for the popular half-time performance. Suspense increases for everyone—“Will we win?” “Who will be Homecoming Queen?” ROYALTY AND ATHLETES SHARE LIMELIGHT The A-Club presents Queen Celinda Mounts and her attendants at the Pep Rally.It has been the custom for many years for the Pep Club to form a double “spirit line" on the football field before each game. As the cheerleaders lead the team through this aisle of girls onto the field, one can hear the Pep Clubs voices raised in cries for victory. All students gather in the school auditorium for the Pep Rally, where they cheer for the team and excitedly await the crowning of the Homecoming Queen. For the second year in a row. the Class of ’59 wins first place with their float. This year with the “heavenly" creation the senior class theme was “Bulldogs Will Shine."

An annual attraction, the Pep Club Formal, was held in mid-winter by the club. The theme for the social event was “Winter Wonderland.” In early Spring, the Pep Club sponsors a semi-formal dance and later in the year, a banquet is held to announce the cheerleaders for the new year. The final activity sponsored by the club is a rally at which senior lettermen are presented with certificates of achievement and the officers for the coming year are presented by the retiring officers.AHS CHEERLEADERS VERONICA AUSTEN DIANA CRAIG JOY THOMPSONThe glistening white snow blanket creates a fairyland on the western plain. Students welcome the coming of winter The season brings the out-door pleasures of ice-rink, the exhilaration of sledding in the nearby sandhills, the thrill of fishing through the ice, and the experience of walking briskly down a snowy street hearing the crunch of snow under each foot and seeing a cloud of breath suspended in the frosty air. With the cold comes increased vigor and vitality. When the weather drives all indoors, the pleasures of inside activities offer diversion. Basketball reigns supreme in the world of sports. The gym is the hub of activity, both for the players and for the fans. During the winter months clubs for both boys and girls present interesting and informative programs. Most students take a part in Y-Teens or Hi-Y or F. F. A. or Pep Club or the language clubs. There is room for all. By now students have settled into a routine of work and play. Time moves steadily through the deep winter months. EVENTS Winter Activities 56 Basketball 60 Choirs 64 54 WINTER — “o.wind. If winter comes, can Spring be so far behind?” —PERCY SHELLERColorful, dangling snowflakes, glittering icicles, skaters’ silhouettes, snowmen . . . these all combine to make a “Winter Wonderland” for dancers at the Pep Club Formal. HOLIDAY SPIRIT FILLS THE AIR The holiday spirit of December is reflected by the gala Pep Club Formal, the “star-studded” Y-Teen Orpheum, State Music Clinic, and many other festive winter activities and projects. At the beginning of the new year, the welcome Christmas vacation gives way to the whirl of school life again. A-Club initiates suffer for a week. FFA speakers start practicing, and students cram for semester tests. Judy Bushnell and Sharon Jordan act as refreshment-selling “stewardesses” at the Y-Teen Orpheum. which this year has the theme “Fun Flight.” The Orpheum is an annual, popular program of school talent. 6Students attending the-State Music Clinic this year are, hack row: Linda York, JoAnn Mr Fall. Connie Sherlock, Jim Worthley. Jim Kimmel, Doug Bedient, Van Galloway, Celinda Mounts, and Jane Woodham. Front row: Wally Seiler, Francie Hoe, Tom Wright, Jane Gorder, Jan Engelsgjerd, and Carol Ann Johnson. Robert Stark is the alternate and David Beckhoff is the speaker representing Alliance in the District 8 FFA Public Speaking Contest. 57 These weird-looking creatures are only Chuck Riggs, Bill Wilson. Dick Thomas, and Chuck Rusk, who are being initiated into “A” Club. The week-long initiation is fun for the whole student body to watch, and those boys who complete their initiation tasks are to be admired-Rich Nelson and Lupe Florez are only two of the many A.H.S. students who spend much of their leisure time dancing. The Hi-Y Sweetheart Ball, held every year around Valentine’s Day, provides a formal atmosphere in which couples can enjoy this popular pastime. With one-half of the school year gone, seniors look back for a moment on the eventful first semester of their final year in .Alliance High, then turn their thoughts toward the future—spring . . . prom . . . graduation. But many things happen before spring arrives. Late winter is the time for dances, basketball, the senior class play, the selection of a Court Queen, a Hi-Y Sweetheart, and a Polio King and Queen. WINTER ACTIVITIES OCCUPY STUDENTS The Alliance High Pep Band, directed by Mr. Don Harriss, adds color and enthusiasm to every pep rally and basketball game.The Y-Teens sponsor a Polio King and Queen Contest to raise money for the annual March of Dimes Drive. Students purchase two votes for each dime. This year the King is sophomore Jim Kettelhut and the Queen is Karen Brock, a senior. Nearly every Friday or Saturday night finds the city auditorium packed with a basketball-minded crowd. A.H.S. enthusiastically supports its team, and the sport holds great interest for all. Senior class members who presented the play “Arsenic and Old Lace” are, back row: Bob Wright. Jim Lake, Bob Retke, Jane Woodham, and J. D. Smith. Front row: Marta Myers, Wally Seiler. Bob Knight.

The Alliance team steadily improved, but its efforts were not rewarded in the win-loss records as a result of losing several close games by less than four points. Although the losses were discouraging, the team’s willingness and enthusiasm displayed throughout the season, provided much excitement and interest for A.H.S. spectators. Cary Olson sinks a two-pointer for the Bulldogs.

Spring Concert, Christmas Concert, Graduation, Baccalaureate, and various other functions would not be complete without the delightful performances of the choir. All members of the choir especially enjoy the annual Scottsbluff-Alliance Music Clinic. The students enjoyed practicing for two days with the guest director, Richard Hoffland. The affair was climaxed with an evening concert which presented the entire group. LAST ROW, left to right: C. Zaliares, B. Bartels, L. Garrett, V. Galloway, M. Moeller, E. Tollman, R. Rusk, J.

Earth stirs to clothe the hills and fields with a garment of green. This season brings not only a renewal of nature but also the climax of the school year. Students, who for twelve years have been sheltered, taught, disciplined, respected and enjoyed by teachers and friends, are ready to graduate to new experiences and responsibilities. Whatever the future may hold for each one, the days spent in A. H. S. will long be cherished as an experience in free, public education.

Before they know it, they look around and find themselves in caps and gowns, ready to graduate. Judy Hood and Bill Rochlitz, members of the Class of 59, prepare for the big night when they will receive their diplomas. GRADUATION CREATES FLURRY OF EXCITEMENT Spring brings a rush of last-minute activities. Juniors present the prom; officers, cheerleaders, and majorettes for the next year are elected; and final tests are given. The most important event of the spring is graduation. For three years the seniors have studied and participated in their many activities. Now comes the biggest “activity” of all. Caps and gowns, name cards, annuals, the strains of “Pomp and Circumstance”—all create a complex atmosphere in which any senior will one moment think joyfully, “At last I’m graduating!” but the next 'moment regret leaving. Mr. Dick Shepherd and Mr. Bob Hyland are the student teachers from Chadron State Teachers College who have been with our faculty since early in the second semester. 80With spring comes warm weather and an urge to be outdoors. The GAA, sponsored by Miss Nona Woodhams, is no exception. These members arc deciding which team will be first up to bat in their softball game. Already the juniors begin to assume the responsibilities that will be theirs as seniors next year. Jeanine Anderson is the alternate officer and Linda Reno is president of the Statewide Y-Teen Conference to be held in Camp Merrill, Fullerton, Nebraska, in July. This is the first year that Alliance Jiigh has had the honor of having officers elected from our school.BACK ROW: Dick Thomas, I arry Woehl, Dick O’Brien, Dale Vaughn.

It has been a good year, made pleasant by the cooperation and helpfulness of many people. I am glad for the opportunity to express the appreciation I have felt so many times to all who have made this year one of never-to-be-forgotten memories. We, the staff, thank Mrs. Alice Nelson for her untiring efforts to make our annual the best possible yearbook. No detail has been too small for her consideration and she has given unstintingly of her time. Miss Sonja Paulsen has also spent many hours in correcting final copy. Miss Paulsen is the Bulldog critic. One of my greatest pleasures this year has been the privilege of working with the Bulldog staff. Thank you Hallie Lore, Marta Jean Myers, Linda Tice, Linda Lewis, Arthur Hudson, Irene Vargas, Carol Scoggin and Barbara Merritt for the fine work you have given. I know how much you have contributed to this book in time and thought. I should like to particularly thank the members of the advertising staff. Their work is done outside of school hours, and requires time and conscientious effort on their part to contact the business men of Alliance. Without the advertising the Bulldog could not be published. The business men of our commimity who have expressed their interest in our activities by supporting the Bulldog deserve our special appreciation. Their dollars-and-cents support makes this book possible. Without the help and advice of Mr. Glen Worley, the photographic effects we were interested in achieving would have been altogether impossible. We thank Mr. Worley for the many hours he has spent working with us. Such a book as this is the sum total of the efforts of many individuals. Without the cooperation of our instructors we could not have published this Bulldog. Mr. Stan Bedient of the Bedient Lithograph Co. has also made a significant contribution. He has made the final reading of the Bulldog copy. To all who have so graciously assisted, the 1959 staff of the Bulldog joins with me in expressing our sincere appreciation.
