Text from Pages 1 - 168 of the 1977 volume:

Doubletake At the intersection of Fourteenth and Laramie, 477 students gather 175 days a year to form Alliance High School. We, as individuals, have unique ideas and goals, but are united through classes, organizations, and athletics. We look to the future through different eyes, but as companions, we join together in a DOUBLETAKE of our year. The students are, surprisingly, at work. This is where it all happens-Alliance High School Mr. Yost and friendsA.H.S. abounds with talent Sally Brandt gives her usual look. 3 At one time or another the school benches are always full.

The dances and activities provide escapes from books and lectures, but everyone has a common goal, accomplishment and success. Through a DOUBLETAKE, one sees how these are achieved.Arts Through the many arts offered at AHS, a student is able to express himself and exercise his imagination. Such things as music, art, speech and acting not only give students a chance to show their talents, but also add color and entertainment to the lives of fellow students and the public. The DOUBLETAKE of arts reveals hit plays, forgotten lines, practice for concerts, unexplainable paintings and most of all, a lot of dedication.ARTS mA.H.S. Combines Music and Drama Lili, lead played by Kathy Williams, sings “Love Makes the World Go ’Round to the puppets. Jim Lamb, as Paul, performs a solo as puppet friend, “Carrot Top , watches. “Carnival” hit the stage of A.H.S. with enthusiastic power during the second week in November. After three months of hard work and long hours, this all-school musical was considered by many as one of the finest achievements of A.H.S. music-drama productions in a decade. The entire play had to be redesigned from the original creation specifications and the music and script had to be edited and rearranged to fit within the limitations of the Alliance High School stage. The use of a piano and organ instead of a full orchestra for accompaniment enhanced rather than limited the performance. The production of “Carnival” is one which will be long remembered by Alliance audiences. Kent Colwell, in the major role of Marco the Magnificent, awaits the arrival of Rosalie. The role of Rosalie, portrayed by Amy Youngman, threatens to leave her lover, Marco. 18Departments in “Carnival” Demonstrating a step for Lili, Paul falls in agony from his war injury. Tracy Kistler and Jane Green rehearse for their big act. Mitch Lamm, Keith Gardiner, Kathy Coleman, and Deb Nansel all seem to be after the fat lady, Natalie Lauer. Gerald Messersmith and Jim Lewis appear as comedy and tragedy. 194 hespians “We are the kids from the Thespian Follies.” This theme has echoed through the halls of AHS in more ways than ever this year. In cooperation with the music department they helped to produce a fantastic musical, “Carnival . One highlight of this year was the trip taken by Troupe 3146 to see “The Fantastics” put on by Kearney State College. After this trip, the troupe returned to begin rehearsals on the Thespian play, “Noah,” with Howard McCall portraying Noah. On December 19th they doubled their number by initiating ten members which included three understudies.

The two small groups performed for various civic groups and at many school activities. The swing choir not only sang, but also worked on interpreting different styles of music with choreography and a variety of vocal techniques. Swing choir entertains the grade school.

The Y-Teen group at A.H.S. strives toward unifying girls of all creeds in an effort to strengthen fellowship of people not only in the United States but also around the world. This was exemplified by the annual Y-Teen World Fellowship Fair. Booths displayed the various foods, posters, and handwork from other nations of the world to help enrich the public’s understanding of other races. Y-Teens were involved in many services throughtout the year. A retreat was held in Chadron for the officers and cabinet members as they began making plans for the upcoming year. The first group activity was the Patteran which is a ceremony in which letters from the previous year’s officers are read to the group. Some other group activities included a pizza party, goodwill baskets at Christmas and the annual Y-Teen Orpheum. The funds raised from the Orpheum were used to sponsor an orphan from Korea, to provide money for scholarships and to aid in other philanthropic projects.

Leonard Glarum demonstrates his ability to ‘clown around for the Y-Teen members. 29“O God! You are so-you are so-Godlike!' The opening of the Thespian play, “Noah,” was questioned when a member of the cast and a member of the lighting crew contracted chicken pox two days before production. However, in the old Broadway tradition of “the show must go on,” student director, Amy Youngman, stepped in for Mary Hoffmann for two of the three performances. Obey’s play “Noah,” with humorous informality, described what might have happened aboard the famous ark. There was, however, more to the play than the mere story of Noah; it dealt with the timeless problems of the generation gap and the tragedy of alienation. Major roles in the play were taken by: Howard McCall as Noah, Vickie Nansel as Mama, Mitch Lamm as Shem, Jim Lamb as Ham, John Paulsen as Japhet, Jane Green as Norma, Kathy Coleman as Sella, and Mary Hoffmann as Ada. The remaining roles were taken by Thespians. ‘Pox’ Plagues Play Two months of rehearsal lead to a successful production. Japhet mimicks the story of the cat told by the girls. The freeze during Noah’s soliloquy is effective. “What’s this in the dove’s beak? An olive branch!’’ God chose the friendliest animals for Noah’s voyage. 30Art Club Exerts Its Talents Art Club members are: Patty Howell, Cindy Colson, Kevin Krohn, Jeff Meade.

The beginning of a time-consuming project Devoted members are Brcck Chipperfield and Patty Howell. The Alliance High Art Club was very active this year. The members expressed their artistic abilities in various ways. While on display in art exhibitions, many of their works were sold. Also, contracts for painting billboards and signs were made. Projects completed by the club included painting the mascots of schools in the West Big Ten and Western Conference, which were hung in the North High gymnasium and designing the front of the pressbox at Bulldog Stadium. Art exhibitions were held in December and once again in May at the school’s spring concert. The club took a trip to Denver to tour the Denver Art Museum and to Kearney to see an exhibition held in their new art gallery. Officers this year were Jeff Meade, President; Glenn Filling-er, Vice-President and Treasurer; and Jan Spencer, Secretary. Mr. Larry Mannlein sponsored the group. 31Art Is a Direct Channel for Cindy Colson captures an image of Jesus in charcoal. On all levels, students of the AHS Art Department discover meanings and satisfied personal experiences through direct involvement with art. Mr. Lawrence Mannlein, the art instructor, provides a curriculum program which allows each individual student to build art talent and appreciation of art. Mr. Mannlein feels that self-expression is fundamental in the art process for all students. Along with the regular projects, including drawing, pottery, sculpture, watercolor, acrylics, block printing, and many others, art history is an important part of the awareness of our culture. Art appreciation is vital to the creation of artistic talent. With a solid background of art and an open eye for the future, AHS art students are able to develop their abilities and make creations for our culture. David Jensen prepares an ink roller for block printing. Sally Brandt shows her freeness of style and imagination with acrylics. Ann Jesse and Brcck Chipperfield enjoy sculpture in art class. 32Self-Awareness Kim Halcomb demonstrates the dipping technique of glazing pottery. An old photograph takes on new dimensions as Vicke Vogel displays her art talent. Rose Wounded Arrow shows classmates her latest creation. Tom Fawcett illustrates the song “Funeral for a An excellent charcoal portrait by Robert Williams Friend'’. 33Out of the empty locker rooms come athletes, coaches, wins, losses, crowds, cheers, disappointments and unity. Sports provide an opportunity for the student body to unite for a common cause. Whether through participation or support, all must learn to accept the defeats along with the victories. As we DOUBLETAKE the sports season of AHS, everyone will remember different moments and will experience the feelings of happiness and disappointment once again.SPOR TSHarriers Have Building Season Front row: Gary Hawley, Brian Heitz, Glen Kyser, Dan Swesey, Pat Toedtli, and Neil Hawley, Second row: Alan Gardiner, Mark Blume, Lori Cummings, Laurie Kulas, student manager Pam Klinkacek, Andy Brittan, and Bill Brungard. Third row: Lynn Fillinger, Tom Fawcett, Glen Fiebig, Greg Keene, Les Nepper, Tom Johnson and Andy Meade. A new addition this year to the sports department was girls’ cross-country. The girls tried hard and performed fairly well. They will probably do better next year because they will have more experience and stronger endurance. According to Coach Kyser: “Due to injuries and lack of experience, the Alliance High Cross-Country team had a building year.” With only three seniors and the rest underclassmen, the team went to the meets and displayed their best efforts. Confidence and experience will help next year’s team. Les Nepper strides for the finish line. Laurie Kulas picks up speed on her opponent.

The 1976 season was very successful for the Alliance High Spikers, not only because of their 14-5 record, but also because of the team qualities displayed through desire, leadership, pride, and court performances. With four seniors, two juniors, and great back-up players, teamwork and team play proved to be the high point of the season. Coach Pilfold said of the team: “It’s fun to coach players that care, and they all did care, for the good of the team.” 1976 was a rewarding year in a special way for Coach Pilfold as she acquired the hundredth win of her career. Varsity honors went to June Pokorski and Carmen Knaub for the Alliance Invitational All-Tourney Team; June Pokorski received the Senior Award, as voted by teammates; and June Pokorski and Vickie Nansel were named Senior Co-Captains. The Junior Varsity matured throughout the season and ended with an 8-3 record. The team should be ready to help the ’77 season a great deal.

It goes without saying that the 1976 football season was a big disappointment. The final record was only one win against eight losses. This year’s team lacked experience at the beginning of the year with only six seniors participating. Surprisingly enough, player morale was good throughout the season. The young men had several let downs during the season, but proved they had the ability to bounce back, not with victory, but with improvement. Coach Smith had this to say about the season: “The outlook for next season is good. Approximately nine starters along with a fine group of talented people will return. We will have plenty of game experience under our belts, and we are all looking forward to next season.” Players named to the Western Conference Team were: defensive back Todd Crowder and wing back Dennis Walker. Honorable mention awards went to Ken Willey, Kent Colwell, and Jerry Thompson. Named to the West Big Ten All Conference Team were Todd Crowder and Dennis Walker. Jerry Thompson and Kent Colwell received honorable mention awards. A.H.S. coaches for this year are: Pat Cullen, Brad Smith, Terry Myers and Jim Hawk. 40Varsity Scores Reserve Scores TEAM A.H.S.

During the year, sayings like “What is the name of that weed again?”, “They call that steak a bullhead!”, and “That cheese tastes terrible” could be heard at various judgings in which the FFA chapter participated. The FFA chapter under the supervision of Dave MacDonald took part in range, land and stubble mulch, livestock, meats and dairy judgings, several management tests, various speech contests and State choir. Their money-making projects included the snack shack at football games, cleaning the stadium, selling hot dogs and pop, and picking nightshade from beans. Several members went to National Convention in Kansas City and State .Convention in Lincoln. The annual banquet was held April 17th. New officers for next year were installed, awards given, and the sweethearts were announced. On May 13, the Alliance FFA chapter challenged the Hemingford chapter to a basketball game for Fun Day.

This year could be described as a challenge and at times a struggle. Coach Bob Morris said, “We must strive for constant improvement and take pride in our performance. We must push ourselves towards performing to our capibilities regardless of the opponent. Brad Tittel, Todd Crowder, Denny Walker, Dirk Simpson, Rock Edwards and Corey Blare have been our most improved players all year.” Despite all of the trials facing this inexperienced team “they shot well 40 percent on field goals and 72 percent on free throws. Dirk Simpson was the leader in the field with 49 percent and Brad Tittel took the honors in free throws with 90 percent.” It is Coach Morris’ hope that, “if the guys feel as I do, next year we intend to redeem ourselves. If they do, then 1 am sure they will realize that preparation starts now and continues on through the season.” Todd Crowder shoots for two. Brad Tittel was named All Western Conference by Sidney’s newspaper and Honorable Mention by all conference coaches. The team awaits the start of the game.

Coach Cullen looks toward next year’s season with enthusiasm. “I hope that our younger wrestlers have learned from the seniors, take pride in themselves and will be able to fill the shoes of our graduates.

Pep Club attempted to increase school spirit and pride by trying new ideas to boost enthusiasm. Bulldog signs were staked in front of each of the cross country, football and volleyball players’ homes at the beginning of the year. The Breakfast of Champions was held for these same athletes, along with the other homecoming festivities. Fund raising projects included a car wash, selling booster buttons, and holding sock hops with the help of Student Government. With these funds a new mascot uniform was purchased. Because of a lack of money and spirit, work was being done at the end of the year to either revise or eliminate an organized Pep Club. School Song arouses Pep Club members’ enthusiasm. 1976-1977 Pep Club Officers are: President, Amy Youngman; Vice-President, Dede DeVeny; Yell-Leader, Linda Hoppens; Treasurer, Kathy Coleman; Secretary, Robyn Garrett.

This year’s track squad was very young, but possessed a great deal of enthusiasm. The team gained valuable experience with every meet and steadily showed improvement throughout the season. Brad Tittel was the outstanding track athlete and Tim Olson was the most improved track athlete. The highlight of the year was the sending of three boys to the State Track Meet. State qualifiers were Todd Crowder, Brad Tittel, and Cory Hall. Crowder placed fourth in the 440 yard dash, Tittel palced second in the high jump, and Hall did not place in the 220 yard dash. The track team was hampered by the lack of an all-weather track. Because of the weather, the cinder track was in poor shape during most of the season. The team was relatively free of injuries except for Tracy Kistler who missed a week with pulled leg muscles and Todd Crowder who was bothered by foot problems throughout the season. Student Manager and runners prepare for upcoming events while watching teammates perform. 57Girls Run, Jump, and Hurdle Their Way to New School Records Laurie Kulas does her thing in the 440 yd. dash. Jodi Meter arches to go for the new height 80 yd. low hurdle ace, Kathy Duryea, clears in her speciality, the high jump. the last hurdle and heads for the finish.

Laurie Kulas’ time of 62.5 seconds in the 440 yd. dash was added to the list of record breakers along with miler, Kim Epperson’s 5:53.7 minutes and Jodi Meter’s high jump of five feet. Two relay teams left their marks on the records with times of 52.1 seconds in the 440 and 1:51.1 minutes in the 880. Although bad weather hampered practices and all members didn’t break records, the team finished towards the top in each of the seven major meets. Coach Pilfold felt the team performed well, but commented that more depth was needed in all events.

Duryea and Meter Make It to State Jodi Meter represented Alliance in the high jump at the state meet. She failed to place, but found that participating was an experience that she will never forget. As Jodi expressed, “Competing in the state meet was a challenging, interesting, and fun experience. 1 felt it was an honor to compete against the best jumpers in Class B and knowing that 1 was going against the best made me even more nervous. 1 found that a state meet has more competitors and spectators, and is more organized than regular meets. Most impressive of all was the competition; it was unbelievable.” State Meet Qualifiers, Jodi Meter and Kathy Duryea. Kathy Duryea earned her way to the state meet by taking second in the 80 yard low hurdles at the District meet. In order to qualify for the finals at state, she had to place first or second in her heat or have the fastest third in all of the heats. In the excitement of the race, Kathy was knocked off balance by hitting the first hurdle with her trail leg. She continued to run the race, but finished fourth in her heat. Kathy commented on the race, “I was very disappointed in my performance, but I hope I will do better next year.” 59Gun Club officers are: President, Bart Briggs; Vice-President, Mark Buskirk; Secretary-Treasurer, Terry Buskirk; and club sponsor, Keith Kyser. The 1976-77 Gun Club started its’ second year with skill and safety as major goals. Open to anyone between the ages of twelve and nineteen, members are instructed in gun safety, maintenance, and handling. After the first few weeks of learning the basics, many hours were spent practicing for accuracy. As a result, they ended the season with an impressive record by winning two matches over Scottsbluff and one over the DeMolay. Mr. Keith Kyser, Mr. Glen Fiebig, and Jim Weber acted as coaches and sponsors for the team. Gun Club Aims for Skill and Safety READY! AIM! FIRE! Bart Briggs shoots for a perfect score. 60Golf Team Has Fine Season The Alliance High Golf Team had a fine season this year. The main high point was winning the B4 District meet which qualified them for the state meet. Brook Bowhay was the most improved golfer and Jim Olson was the outstanding golfer. There were approximately 40 people on the golf team this year. The team should be strong again next year with all the state competitors returning and the loss of only a few seniors. The girl golfers did not have their own meets this year, but look forward to having their own meets next season. Team members are: (1st row) Andy Brittan, Carmen O. Knaub, Gretchen Goaley, Laurie Hoff, Janet Watson, Jim Nollette, Barb Zurn, (2nd row) Ken Jaggars, Marty Petersen, John Paulsen, Don Lampert, Brook Bowhay, Brett Dietrich, Tom Goaley, (3rd row) Joe Neeley, Jim Nagaki, Roy Kuncl, Dave Mc-Vicker, Jim Olson, Kirt Kosmicki, Mike Montague, and Coach Wayne Brown.

TO LORI Time and space mean nothing With friends as close as we. You’re still with us always Just like it used to be. We'll cling to the memories And friendship that we shared; Our hopes, our plans, our secrets And how much we always cared. We hope that peace and happiness Are the things that you have found. We miss you more than you could know, And wish you were around. And things will be the same When we're back together again We'll begin again where we left olf Together Forever Friends.

Mr. Crowder secs that the sophomores are given a good meal. The sophomore class joined the ranks of the student body last fall with high expectations in their new roll as high school students. The class of ’79 faced new teachers, new classes, and new responsibilities. Since no moneymaking projects were needed, the necessity for having class officers was eliminated. Through their active participation in other school activities, the sophomore class became an influential part of Alliance High. I still have all those books left! Rick demonstrates a new talent in the gym. Warren, Jane, and Sue mix study with socialization. 97 Academics Although a large portion of time is used for extra activities, the main purpose of any school is to instruct and to prepare students for the future. The various departments are all geared to teach students the basics and, sometimes, the “not-so-basic basics.” Different courses and approaches attempt to keep the learning experience interesting and enjoyable. But the greatest advantage to learning at AHS is the faculty. They make the difference between learning just to learn, and enjoyable learning. Exciting and boring classes, tests and teachers are all part of the academic DOUBLE-TAKE. —ACADEMICS To keep Alliance High School running efficiently required the daily efforts of the office staff. Principal Don Crowder kept charge of the operations of secretaries, Mrs. Barb Dietrich and Ms. Lynn Dykes. The staff was joined by Mr. Robert Morris, who served as the new activities director. Every day, students relied on these people, and their valuable services were greatly appreciated. Barb Dietrich Don Crowder Robert Morris The Main Office Keeps AHS Going Guidance Counselors Aid Students Mr. Reno works with students in the reading lounge. Miss Christensen helps Theodora Liakos with her ACT. Bill Reno Bill Podraza Jim Roche Mary 1 rongillo The guidance department aided students with daily problems, test registrations, college preparation and scheduling throughout the year. Counselors included: Miss Mary Frongillo, resource, Mr. Jim Roche, law enforcement, Dr. Bill Podraza, school psychologist, and Mr. Bill Reno who joined the staff this year as department head. They and the guidance team teachers made school life easier. 100Administration Works Behind the Scenes The 1977 School Board Dr. Jaggers, Mr. Simpson, Mr. Goff, Mr. Lawrence, Dr. Segrist, and Mrs. Curtiss Mr. Petersen, Superintendent of Schools Mr. Duryea, Business Manager Although few students realized it, all year long the school board members and administrative personnel were working behind the scenes to help provide the students with a better education. In the Administrative Building, Mr. Bob Duryea, the school business manager; Mr. Martin Petersen, Superintendent of Schools; Mr. Lyle Newman, community education director- the secretarial staff; and Mrs. Dixie Bloom bookkeeper, controlled the complex system which kept the school running smoothly. The 1977 School Board officers were: President Wayne Goff, Vice President Dr. John Segrist and Treasurer Bob Duryea. The other three School Board members were: Mr. Archie Lawrence, Mrs. Sherrie Curtiss, and Dr. Richard Jaggers. Special recognition goes to Dr. Raymond Olson. He served on the School Board for thirteen years and his efforts have not gone unnoticed. Thank you, Dr. Olson Mr. Newman, Community education Director Mrs. Ruth Sanchez, Mrs. Dixie Bloom, Mrs. Carol Brown, and-Mrs. Sharon Bowman. 101Ogallala and Alliance council members exchange ideas. The 1976-77 Student Council played an important part in uniting the various groups of AHS. Mass meetings for officers of the different clubs were held in an attempt to improve the relationship among students. As a result of these meetings. Student Council co-sponsored an FFA dance and financially aided Pep Club by giving them sponsorship of the sock hops. The council also sponsored the annual Homecoming dance, maintained the student lounge and issued a number of financial and scholastic scholarships. The council inaugurated not only events but also items. The old tradition of a Homecoming parade was regained. New happenings included the Ogallala exchange trip and Morp, which was a dance to unite AHS and St. Agnes students. They also purchased new games for the student lounge, an inscribed mat and a water cooler for the upper hall. The Student Lounge foosball machine is a regular pastime. Council members express their talent at the Y-Teen Orpheum. Student Council Acts As an Intermediary Student Council members are: Mr. Reno, sponsor, Jan Spencer, Todd Crowder, Rick Gonzalez, Mary Hoffmann, Jeff Williams, Dianne Nielsen, Dede DeVeny, Kelly Johnson, Jim Olson, Cory Hall, Larry Nagaki, Tim Olson, Brian Rockey, Vickie Nansel, Kent Colwell. Student Council officers are: Todd Crowder, Vice-President; Mary Hoffmann, Secretary; Dianne Nielsen, Treasurer; Jan Spencer, President. 102James McDermott Math Adds Up Leonard Hartman Nancy Langncr and Bob Williams concentrate on their math problems. The Mathematics program offered a variety of classes, ranging from Consumer Mathematics to Math Analysis. The student in Consumer Mathematics used basic math to solve situations and problems of everyday life. Advanced Algebra and Geometry allowed students to further develop their basic concepts of math. Math Analysis was oriented for a student desiring to do more then just scratch the surface of mathematics. It was an excellent preparation for college mathematics. The Math department strives to meet the needs and interest of all students. Mr. Hawk offers needed assistance to Ron Ewing. Mr. Hartman shows visible proof of a geometric problem. 103You Gotta Have Art Debra Dowling Tom Bibbey To escape the daily routine of school and life, you gotta have art. Various forms of choir, band, and art provided this escape for the students at AHS. Under the direction of Mr. Tom Bibbey, stage, pep, marching, and concert bands were offered for those who enjoy instrumental music. For students vocally inclined, choir was available in boys’, girls’ and mixed choruses. Swing Choir provided a chance for members to sing as well as dance. Mrs. Debra Dowling directed all of the choirs. Mr. Larry Mannlein instructed art students in pottery, plaster casting, acrylic and water painting. Besides personal projects, members of the art classes contributed to the appearance of the school by painting murals throughout the building. All in all, art in any form contributes to making life more exciting and school more bearable. It takes a steady hand to glaze a pot. Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song and all about you will be beauty. Navajo Song 104Bill Furman Phil Schweitzer History Is a Thing of the Past Ellen Christensen The look of a true scholar Mr. Schweitzer’s students attack assignments with different degrees of enthusiasm. Ellen Lierk Sid Miller History is a “thing of the past”, but social sciences are very much “of today”. Through classes such as politics, economics, modern problems, American Government and civic responsibilities, students keep on top of the present and prepare for the future, while world and American History provide an opportunity to study yesterday’s happenings. By offering courses on the study, survey, and research levels, a student can choose the degree of study which best suits his ability. Social sciences combined with history provide AHS students not only a variety of subjects, but also a challenge. 105These DECA members attended the State Convention. Robyn Morris prepares a model for display. Distributive Education Clubs of America DECA Club officers are: Jay Wcisgerber, Vickie Rapp Keene, Marla Todd, Lori Underwood, Carolyn Burton, and Rhonda Frohman.

Deb Rech, State DECA Convention Award winner 106Bruce Rockey Juanita Glarum Vocational Courses Are Many and Varied Ramona Hucke Lonnie Sherlock Mrs. Sherlock lectures on bookkeeping to his eager class. Dianne Nielsen, Gloria Flores, Vickie Nansel and St. Agnes’s Julie Podhaisky work on typing in office co-op. The Vocational Department at AHS offered students a variety of courses, allowing them to gain experience in fields ranging from shorthand to mechanics. Such classes as typing, shorthand, office practice and co-op train students for office-related work and provide them with skills which are useful both in and out of school. Distributive education and bookkeeping teach practical skills needed by everyone and provide good background for those going into the business field. Building trades and drafting are other aspects of this department which are tailored to the students' future occupations. By offering such a wide range of subjects, the Vocational Department covers most of the students’ needs and wants. Mr. Rockey helps students learn the fine art of drafting. Mrs. Glarum dictates while shorthand students take notes. 107Vocational Shop Courses Provide Practical Learning Robert Shipman John Bandcl Mr. McDonald and Randy Collins work on a division wall in the shop building. Two welders concentrate intently on their work. Practical learning is the main objective of the courses offered in the Vocational Building. By the addition of new teach' ers, students found a wide variety of classes. Girls as well as boys took advantage of welding, woods, electricity, gas engines, and auto tech. Agriculture-related courses were also offered and held in the High School building. Vocational shop courses provided practical learning experiences. Students taking any of these built a strong foundation on which to base a successful career in any of the related fields. Kim Tolstedt, Becky McDonald, Desirac Lawrence and Reed Pot-mesil prove that vocational shop isn’t just for the guys. ‘Now that you’ve taken it apart, put it back together.' 108Geogc Schamber Julie Reno Keith Kyser The Driver’s Education and Home Economics Departments prepared students for daily life.

Library and A-V Materials Add New Dimensions To Learning Adding new dimensions to learning were the library and audio-visual facilities. Mrs. Anna Prentice and Mrs. Ruth Simmons helped students use library resource materials and Mr. Richard McCall provided A-V materials to add variety to studies. Many students take advantage of the library’s helpful study materials. Anna Prentice 10V Richard McCallCommunications Enable Students to Express Themselves in Various Ways Ivan Polyakov Lila Fiebig Jackie Howell demonstrates how to make a scrumptious root beer float. One of the main goals in speech class was to develop self-confidence, so that the students would be able to take part in any communication situation. The main emphasis was organization of thoughts, materials, and clear and logical thinking. Theatre class students learned an appreciation of all types of entertainment through learning the fundamentals of the various forms of theatre activities. They also learned acting techniques as well as the technical aspects of producing a play or other forms of entertainment. Foreign languages offered a communication different from speech and theatre classes. German and Spanish aided in the student’s understanding of others’ languages, cultures, and origins. Theatre class executes the “human machine.' Deutsch students appear to be hard at work. Mrs. Fiebig prepares her Spanish students for an upcoming quiz. 110SPUD SPUD staff members arc: Sally Jo Rusk, Ron Ewing, Greg Fritzler, Gary Wollin, Kevin Christensen, Joy Houser, Eddie Johnson, Sponsor Ms. Leever, Mitch Lamm, Denis Prclle, Tami Vogel, Renee Jinks, Robyn Smith, Anita Johnson, Rose Snyder, Janellc Bilstein, Ann Jesse, Tami Cox, and Roberta Phillip. SPUD photographer, Kevin Christensen, in action A SPUD in the making Composed of Journalism I and II classes, the life blood of AHS flows. The SPUD contains school events and brings to the student awareness of community and national events, which affect the high school youth of America. The activities of the SPUD do not end with the editing of the school paper. These Journalism students also sell advertisements, research news topics and take photographs. Each year members of the staff participate in the Nebraska High School Press Association Convention in Lincoln. This year they received third place honorable mention at the convention, which took place on October 18. • v Reporter Janellc Bilstein, co-editor and editor, Tom Fawcett and Roberta Phillip, work to meet a deadline. Gary Wollin displays his versatility by developing pictures in the SPUD darkroom. IllLynn Fillinger prepares to enlarge a picture. Anita Johnson, Amy Youngman, and Nancy Langner take a break during the 45th annual convention of the Nebraska High School Press Association, held October the 18th in Lincoln. ANNUAL Annual Staff members Sue Schadwinkel, Vicke Vogel, and Tacy Simpson strive to complete their pages. 112Annual Staff members arc: Sally Flint, June Pokorski, Kelly Johnson, Linda Strieker, Tacy Simpson, Amy Youngman, Tammy Reitz, Lori Cummings, Sue Schadwinkel, Lori Studt, Lynn Fillinger, Kim Shannon, Kevin Drummond, Vicke Vogel, and Sponsor Miss Way. Four thousand hours of work, late nights, revising copy, making layouts and meeting deadlines are all aspects of Annual. The main purpose of the staff is to construct the BULLDOG so if thoroughly, but cleverly, covers all aspects of school life. From rough draft to finished product, each page of the book must meet specific requirements concerning cropping, captions, layouts and copy. Editor Amy Youngman takes a minute to think. Qne of the most difficult jobs is coming up with original ideas for copy and pictures. The Nebraska High School Press Association Convention provided members attending with these and many other new ways to improve the yearbook. Staff members practice posing for a picture. Though at times staff members wonder if all the work is worth it, the finished product makes it all worthwhile. Don’t tell me we lost another roll of film!” Who says students don’t think? 113Literature . . . Students act as teachers on English discussion panels. Education is a social process .... Education is growth. Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. John Dewey Sherry Yost Bernard Becker Huckleberry Finn told in pictures Miss Way’s class makes use of study time. Glen Fiebig thinks photographers have all the answers. 114a Slice of Life Alice Greve Some people find English more amusing than others. Students check up on grades. Literature, viewed as a slice of life, is a key to the high school English Department. The units are in sequential progression from year to year, allowing students to cover a variety of authors and their works. AMS also goes back to the basics with stress on grammar, usage, composition and vocabulary, some of which are offered in minicourses. By studying these essential parts of English, students are able to develop effective research papers and to express themselves both orally and in writing. Ann Jesse shifts her attention from English. What word will fit in these squares? 115Science— An Experiment in Learning Bill Stout Bill Marchant Experiments, diagrams, dissecting and lectures are all important parts of science classes. This department provides a curriculum broad enough to cover all science interests. While biology concentrates on plants, animals and their interrelationships, anatomy and physiology is concerned with the structure and function of the human body. Chemistry includes a study of theories and composition, with the advanced course concentrating on organic and inorganic chemistry. The last section of this course is laboratory-oriented, covering qualitative and quantitative anaylsis. All of these classes give students a better understanding of science in everyday life and some of its practical uses. Larry Yost Physics students concentrate on problems requiring knowledge of math and science. Mr. Stout tells one of his interesting experiences to entertain and educate. Dave Schommer, Jack Petersen, Keith Gardiner and Deb Mundt experiment with waves. Mr. Yost demonstrates “dem dry bones.' H6Students desiring physical activity found that the A.H.S. physical education program offered a variety of different sports activities. This was the first year in which sophomores and freshmen experienced co-educational physical education. Juniors and seniors were offered advanced physical education, if they wished to participate in this program beyond the required sophomore level. Coaches Pat Cullen and Sandra Pilfold supervised students in sports involving different types of equipment, which provided the exciting and unusual activity physical education students enjoyed during the year. P.E. class moves to the Bowl-Mor lanes. Tumbling students keep rolling along as the student aides critique. Aide Dawn Pebley passes a P.E. class on her way to the gymnasium to work with her own class. Students learn the coordination, skill and fun involved in playing hockey. 117A.H.S.

Drummond. Besides the administrative and instructional personel, there are other staff members who also play an important role in the general welfare of the school system. In general, maintenance and upkeep of the school buildings rests upon the shoulders of the janitors who must work long hours to fulfill their responsibilities. The cooks in the cafeteria must also be on the job bright and early to see that a nutritious and palatable meal is ready by noon. Last but not least, is the school nurse who makes every attempt to check each student’s eyes, ears and teeth. Without the services of these people, our school would be in unhealthy shambles. 121 This is the typical twelve o-clock hub-bub at AIJS.0 There has to be a close to everything. This is the closing of our book and year. We’ve taken a DOUBLETAKE of times spent studying, competing, cheering, joking, crying, and of times spent together and times spent alone. It’s been said our school spirit has been lost, but through the uniting of our student body, this spirit is returning. If everyone continues to work together, we will become a body, unconquerable. In the years to come we will forget names and faces, but never the feeling of companionship present among those who join to build a better future for all. tv.0NIS013125126 i rv S)c K T 'v Gxci OTMl ! 1 » ' OK »U« Rf 127Advertisements A school is a weak organization if not backed by the town. Local merchants and individuals are an everlasting source of encouragement to high school students.
