Each year sees the introduction of new mini-courses, revised classes, and enlarged speech and journalism offerings. The department aids the student in the exploration of various literary genre and critical analysis; however, the importance of each individual is constantly stressed and the student is afforded the opportunity to form bases for his own personal future.Social Studies ELLEN CHRISTENSEN Social Studies BILL FURMAN Social Studies Department Head 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. 11 Dwight D. Eisenhower PHIL SCHWEITZER Social StudiesLanguages Das Verstandnis Zwischen den meuschen hang davon ab wie gut mau die Sprache versteht Toda la Comunicasion esta basado en la abilidad de uno para entender Toda enlendimento esta basado en la abilidad de uno para comunicarse The Languages are different, but speaking a common message— human understanding is proportional to communicative skills ability. IVAN POLYAKOV German German and Spanish emphasize the oral-ural method in which the student learns to form correct speech patterns and intonations by using the complete phrasing and sentences. Essentials of grammar are presented with an introduction to simple writing techniques. The student tests his ability to learn a language as well as his patience in acquiring a skill. 73Science ■ — .... FRED PETERSEN Department Head BILL MARCHANT 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 LARRY YOST V — Math Department james McDermott Department Head LEONARD HARTMAN 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. J.P. McDermott 25Home Economics Tailoring a fashionable outfit.. .preparing a nutritious as well as delicious meal. . .bachelor's survival. . . these are just some of the skills that are offered by the Home Economics Department. Well-equipped classrooms prepare students, boys and girls alike, with the environmental skills needed for future commitments and responsibilities. 26 JOHN BANDEL TERRY SANDBERG 7BRUCE ROCKEY Department Head The clicking of typewriters and the clanging of gasoline engines are just two of the various sounds echoing from the doors of the Vocational Building. In Vocational Ed, students gain knowledge of various techniques through actual participation in their projects. The Vocational courses provide practical training for all students, whether it is repairing an old jalopy, or knowing which side to debit and credit. 28SHERLOCK LONNIE ANNETTE POOL Art Driver’s Education BOYD BL OMEN KAM? Driver's Education JULIET ROWBOTHAM Art LARRY MANNLEIN Art Students should find that art is a subject that emphasizes expression of self. Art works toward the development of both freedom and discipline, with the realization that you cannot have one without the other. J. Rowbothom Safety procedures, driving skills, and knowledge of a car's anatomy are integral parts of the AHS Drivers Education taught by Mr. Boyd Blomenkamp.Music Department Offering both vocal and instrumental classesy..the music department helps students sharpen musical talents. Long hours of practice pay when music students receive superior ratings in competition and present their fine concerts. In preparing for these activities, many students develop a lifetime appreciation of the fine arts and a desire for further understanding. 31Physical Education GEORGE SCHAMBER Athletic Director Groans and moans are heard intermingled with shrill voices as P.E. students participate in the never ending routine of exercises, which de-velope precision, coordination and agility. Basketball, volleyball, table tennis, and badminton provide the competition which contributes to the good health, and fun of boys and girls. Along with the fun, P.E. keeps the instructors, as well as the students on their toes. Visual Aid Library Guidance Richard McCall, Audiovisual specialist A new addition to the AHS faculty staff this year is the audiovisual specialist, Mr. Richard McCall. Mr. McCall oversees distribution of all audio and visual materials throughout the Junior and Senior High Schools. Taking a hand in student supervision are this year's librarians, Mrs. Vivian Andrews and Mrs. Ruth Simmons. Guiding students through college decisions, acting as Title III director, and teaching psychology are only a few of the roles played by Dr. Bill Podraza, Guidance counselor.taw ’ % | “INTO ■THE prwWi by T(ic iViwrClajj WEARE. . .

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, Sec.-Julie Petersen, Treas.-Paula Bel-den, and Librarians-Kris Olson and Jane Green. When the going gets tough, the tough get going, and that's exactly what the band did. Band Director Tom Bibbey shows a smile after a hard day's work.Back Row-J. Balderson, K. Wilkinson, B. Woods, ].

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 38Majorettes 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.

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 Childrens Theater 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 1974 Choir Officers: Marla Spencer, Jill Marlatt, Mark Seebohm, Choir Director Ken DillingWF A R F THE ACHIEVERSPep Club There is a group that never gives up when the going gets tuff-that's the A.H.S. pep club.

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. 56 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. FHA “Cooks-Up” New Ideas The Future Farmers of America was a very successful club this year.

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. 1st Row-T. Weisgerber, E.

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. 67Volley-Ball 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. ;r SEASON won won won 770 1 won won won won won won won won won lost 2nd 1st 2nd North Platte McCook Gering Kearney Scottsbluff Alliance Invit Big Ten ' District 68.

Tom Ushio also qualified for state, but lost in the first found in Lincoln. The Bulldogs, led by Coach Blomenkamp, had a tough time this year in duals, ending with a 2-6 season. However, they showed their pride by good individual efforts in tournaments. The grapplers1 highest finish was in the Ogallala Invit., in which they placed 4th, and with only three men in the state tourney, Alliance took 6th place. Winning wrestlers include, P. Stavropolous, D. Brown, T. Ushio, J. Brandt and D. Colwell. 70Wrestling 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.

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. ■ 119r-iI We Are . .. the FoundationTHE FOLLOWING ’ BULLDOGS SUPPORTERS” SALUTE THE DR.
