"Science is a creative activity, a continuous search for truth as students learn more about themselves and the universe in which they live. Students are challenged to understand the basic principles of science so that they can prepare to live in a time of rapid scientific advancement. "
JERRY GARDNER, BILL STOUT
Individualized Math lets the student work at his own speed. It introduces a responsibility and a new challenge for each individual. A person can work better and learn more if he can organize himself in his own way.
Traditional math is still here for students who feel that they cannot hold the responsibility or do not want a challenge in the world of math.

When spirit starts to die, the band keeps on going. Through rain, sleet, blistering heat, or freezing cold, the band played on.
Led by director Tom Bibbey, the marching band practiced summer nights getting ready for the Shrine Bowl game which is held every August. The marching didn't stop there, but kept going, getting ready for half-time shows during football season. When football season ended, pep band was beginning, getting ready to provide half-time music for the drill team and tumblers during basketball and wrestling season. The pep band even followed the basketball team down to Lincoln for State Tournament.
Just as soon as pep music was handed in, the band got busy preparing for District Music Contest, which Alliance hosted. Alliance received a unanimous I rating. Individual honors went to Roxi Meter and Deb Hain who each received a I rating in Clarinet solos. Other highlights of the year is that of the majorette tappings. Majorette for next year is Vicki Nansel. New officers are Pres. -Dan Olson, Vice-Pres.-Kevin Wilkinson,

Pep band not only kept the spirit going, but kept the crowd moving. The pep band provided half time music for drill team, as well as the tumblers. Pep music ranged from "Sweet Georgia Brown", to "The Horse", which featured soloist Scott Bowhay on drums. Spirit never died out, as long as pep band kept it going.
Pep Band Promotes Spirit
A shrill whistle is the signal to "straighten up" and to be ready for the next half time show. With the tempo of the drum cadence, and kaleidoscope of floating diamonds, the majorettes led the band.
Poise and leadership are qualities held by the majorettes.
Senior Sandy Kirchner with junior Marcia West and sophomore Nancy Adams were this year's majorettes.

Accidentals Are Sharp
There's no end to music, for music is a universal language. This year's choir directed by Ken Dilling was a considerable improvement over last year's choir. Choir received an "excellent" rating at District music contest which Alliance hosted. From "pop" to classical music the choir sang on. Outstanding choir member was awarded to Jon Wacker.
This year's choir officers were: Marla Spencer President, Mark Seebohm V. President, and Jill Marlatt Sec.-Tres.The Princess And the Pea.
This year Alliance High School presented as its All School Musical "The Princess and the Pea" or Once Upon a Mattress, which was under the direction of choir director Mr. Ken Dil-ling. It takes each actor about 180 hours of hard work to put this together. The musical satire entertained young and old alike.The Thespians Present the
The Golden Grotto, or Bracko, the Frog Prince was the Children's Play. A classic legend is turned upside-down in this delightful comedy for all ages. A glittering magic-grotto under a castle provides the setting for the fun. It is a happy play. It made everyone laugh and have a good time. The Princess loses the golden ball which keeps the castle going. Everyone is upset including the king. The Princess was played by Helen Abbott; the king was Kevin Me Andrew; the wizard was Jon Wacker; the dragon was played by Dave Wegner; the rest of the cast included: Deb Smith, Deb Hain,
Sue Morgan, Shelly Schroeder, Mary Lou Colwell, and Dan Olson.Thespians Have Productive Year
Thespians, sponsored by Mr. Don Clarke, handle drama at AHS. Troop 3146 is dedicated to promoting all aspects of the theater. Although the Thespians are active in many productions, The Children's Theater was their major effort this year. The Golden Grotto was presented to a large audience of bright faced children.
44The Other Side of the Wall
"The Other Side of the Wall" was Alliance High School’s one act play at the District Speech Contest, from which Jayne Minnick was awarded Best Actress. The play involved two postwar worlds in the distant future separated by a wall. In the wall was an opening in the shape of a letter D that one world interpreted as standing for "Devotion" and the other world as "Defense". The arising conflict is the central plot of "The Other Side of the Wall". Characters included Kevin Wilkinson, June Ettle, John Way, Roxi Meter, and Dan Olson.The Lost Horizon Jr. Class Play
The Junior Class presented the play Lost Horizon, an impressive image of human values. The play is set in an Himalayan valley called "Shangri La"—a place of eternal peace, beauty and happiness unknown to the world. Into this setting three western men involved in a plane crash escape a world war and are forced to question the very esscence of their lives. James Hilton's classic has proved to be one of Alliance High School's most thought provoking dramatic productions.
46Glass Menagerie Successful
The "Glass Menagerie" presented May 10th and 11th was, by critical response, one of the finest plays presented on the stage of Alliance High School. The play by Tennessee Williams is set in St. Louis during the early 1930's when, as Tom Wingfield (the central character and narrator) stated "The huge middle class of America was matriculating from a school for the blind, and the world was lit by lightning".
The character Tom Wingfield is trapped in an environment dominated by an emotionally unstable and domineering mother, Amanda. Sharing his plight is his crippled sister Laura who has withdrawn into her fantasy world of glass animals--her glass menagerie. An acquaintance of Tom's enters the scene and attempts to bring Laura into the real world. Jim O'Connor fails in his attempt and leaves Laura with her shattered dreams and a hopeless future. In the end Tom abandons his family to preserve his own sanity and wanders aimlessly, guilt ridden and withdrawn.
The actors of the play were Jayne Minnick as the mother, Amanda; Rick Adams as her son, Tom; Cathy Paulsen as her daughter, Laura; and Gerry Brew as the gentleman caller, Jim O'Connor.Music And Drama Highlights

It takes many long hard hours to put a distinctive yearbook in to print, but these determined creators keep Bull-dogging away to make it the best book ever. The Annual is a book, a class, a business, and most of all, a learning experience in journalism that lasts a lifetime. The effort and time seems lost until the books arrive and enter into our lives as one of our most prized possessions. Nothing can replace the feeling of looking through "our" book years later and realizing each separate future began here as one. Time is the only dividing element, but through this book we can reduce it to a common quality.
Annual ’74FHA, Future Homemakers of America, learned the art of homemaking. The girls in this organization learned economical ways to live, and how to prepare for the future. Activities such as cooking, sewing, and family planning were stressed in this organization. The girls in FHA were guided by Mrs. Marie Sutter and Mrs. Betty Stewart. "Cooperation" was the key word for the organization this year.
Advisors Mrs. Stewart and Mrs. Sutter, Susan Tepley, Linda Strieker, and Ann Jesse.

What would we do without our school paper? Well, as a result, we probably wouldn't know what was going on in the individual activities. SPUD is a biweekly paper that emphasizes new ideas.

THE INVOLVEDDisappointment Overshadows Bulldog Efforts
Coach Boyd Blomenkamp's team suffered a non-winning season this year. The Bulldogs went 0-8-1. According to the game statistics, Alliance should have won several ball games, but the scoreboard showed different. A.H.S. showed great potential in both offense and defense, but not at the same time. The scoring unit was one of the few teams to score on Chadron, the mumber one defense in the state. The defensive unit kept the Bulldogs in the Kimball game, by holding one of the most powerful offensive teams around. The A.H.S. gridders did not give up as they showed in their last game, a 20-21 loss to McCook.
For having a disappointing season, Alliance did well in placing on the honorable conference teams. Receiving Western Conference honors were Kyle Hand, Bruce Watson,
Kevin Wilkinson, and Jim Weber. Hand, Watson, John Way, and John Kooper gained Big Ten recognition.

Harriers Survive Harried Season
For the first time in Bulldog history of Cross Country, Alliance failed to qualify for the state meet. Alliance finished fourth, just out of the money, behind Kimball, Sidney, and Gering in the District meet. Only the first three teams qualified for state.
Alliance, under Coach George Schamber, had a disappointing season, with a few bright spots. The Harriers finished in a tie with Sidney for first in the Alliance Invitational and probably the Bulldogs best effort was the Big Ten in which they finished third.
The Harriers had six lettermen this year. Seniors-Jim Brandt and Tim (Muzzy) Garwood. Juniors-Mark Carter, Tony Chadwick, Bill Kemper, and BJ Hoppens. The Bulldogs should be strong in the future, with freshman Andy Ballain showing promise for the upcoming year.
Spikers-Big Ten Champs
With a successful 13-3 season, the spikers could consider themselves one of the top teams in the state! The talented Volleyball girls won the Big Ten title by defeating Fremont, the team which went on to win the state title. The Spikers also earned runners-up in the Alliance Invitational and in the District tournament. Led by senior co-captains Sandy Kirchner and Heather Heath, the volleyball team lost only one game in regular season, and two battling matches which were for championship titles.
Individual honors went to Heather Heath and Kim Kosmicki, chosen for All-Tourney Team at the Alliance Invitational, and the Gretchen Todd, winner of the Senior Volleyball Award.
Varsity letter winners-Gretchen Todd, Heather Heath, Rhonda Smith, Kim Kosmicki, Mary Lewis, Carla Haslow, Julie Petersen.
The reserves also had an impressive season, ending with a record of 8-3. The J.V. spikers lost their first two matches, then came on strong to win seven straight. In finishing the season they lost to Scottsbluff, but put it together again to beat Fremont.

71Cagers Take District
One of the main goals of Coach Schamber and the Alliance High Basketball team was fulfilled this year. After a nine game losing streak, the AHS Cagers won the District Championship. The Bulldogs battled with Ord, the top seeded team in the state, until the final buzzer went off. It was the first game Ord had trouble winning.
The Bulldogs came on strong for the first three games of the season, then the Roundballers had team problems. It was eleven games before the Cagers put everything together again. Alliance attained two other goals, beating Sidney for the first time in two years, and beating Chadron, the Western Conference champion, in a district win.
The Bulldogs had only two players receiving honors, seniors-Kyle Hand and Stan Schoenemann. Hand was selected for Western Conference, West Big Ten, and All-State. Schoenemann received Western Conference and Honorable Mention West Big Ten. Seniors Hand, Schoenemann, Allen Goff, and Dave Essay were letter-men.

Teardrops, Photo Flashes, And Laughter
Senior Class Speakers Scon Bovvhay and Rhond Smith.Hiahlisht Graduation Exercises
Baccalaureate exercises May 26, increased the tension and excitement for seniors realizing that final commencement was that much nearer.
Stormy weather skuttled plans to use Bulldog Stadium for commencement May 28; the Civic Auditorium was used as an alternate site, with a capacity' crowd jamming the aisles and balcony.
Rev. Orval Spencer gave the opening prayer, followed by Jon YVacker's solo of "The Impossible Dream"; the Accidental Choir, led by Mr. Dilling, sang the class song, "We WILL Never Pass THIS Way Again" following the comments of Senior Speaker Rhonda Smith.
Scott Bowhay was featured as the senior classes' second speaker, after whose comments the commencement exercises were begun, with Rev. Spencer's Benediction bringing the evening's activities to a close.
Those graduation night experiences-- the clicking oi cameras, the flashing of strobes and camera cubes, the tears, the laughter, the sweaty palms, the snagging robes, and those inevitable hassles with tassels--are now memories for the graduates of 1974.
