Stepping Up into a New Decade Neither snow, sleet, rain, nor hail can stop the Alliance High football players, as these onlookers await their turn to help pave the way toward another hopeful victory for the Bulldogs. Regardless of pitfalls, the team compiles a 4-5 record and suffers an upsetting Western Conference title loss, despite much debate. Welcome to another great year at the Alliance High School. There's a new feeling in the air of pride and school spirit. One can see, hear, and feel the enthusiasm during sports, classroom activities, fine arts programs, and just walking through the halls. Throughout the year it is hoped to capture the defeats, anxieties, joys and memories of high school life. Follow me as we see AHS STEPPING UP into the new decade of the 80's.

Branching out from the cobblestoned street of Box Butte Avenue is an expanded city. Evidence of the changing time is visable throughout the residential area. New housing developments, industrial plants, and the overnight extension of the Burlington Northern Railroad have all contributed to the steady growth of the city. As with the modernization of the community, so has the alteration of styles at AHS been obvious. Wool flair skirts, spike heeled boots, saddle shoes, hair ornaments, and self-designed class rings are all a part of the diverse moods and desires of the students. ■ • ■ ■■ ■ ■■■ III (III ■ • A new shopping center adds dimension to the business facilities.

The week consisted of Future Day, Toga Day, Halloween Day, and Pride Day. A parade was held Thurday night, followed by a pep rally and the burning of the "A." A highlight of the Pep Rally was the Kiss-A-Pig contest, in which the students voted for the teacher they wished to see kiss Lori Liggett's piglet, named Gus. Mr. Bill Marchant was voted the winner, but Mr. Jim McDermott did the honors, as Mr. Marchant was not present. Friday, November 2, was the Homecoming game, which was played against Kearney. Despite the high spirits of the Bulldogs and their fans, the Bulldogs bowed to the Bearcats in a 13-6 defeat. Halftime activities included the coronation of the Homecoming Royalty and the performance of the Alliance High School Marching Band. Spirit Week was brought to a close by the Homecoming Dance, where "Brown Sugar" provided the entertainment for approximately 100 couples, by playing a variety of songs. Monte Quick, |im Podhaisky, Brian Lair, Randy Waldron, and Mark Blume lead the cheer "You've Cotta Cet On 1979 Homecoming Royalty are: King Rob Flores, Queen Rene' Morris, Second Attendants Anne Mundt and Tom Klinkacek, and First Attendants |im Podhaisky and Beth Panwitz. band members the costumes they are to wear for "Godspell."

Alliance High students had a variety of places to go in their spare time. One of the most popular was Box Butte Avenue, where kids could find their friends almost any time of day or night. In Alliance, there were several places to eat out. When there wasn't much time, a teen-ager went to fast-food places, such as Arctic Circle, Taco John's, Tastee Freeze, Mini Mart, Kentucky Fried Chicken, or Dairy Queen. If students could spend more time, they went to Happy Joe's, Pizza Hut, Skip's, Grampy's, or The Iron Horse. Spare time for some kids was spent in the downtown area, browsing in the local stores. A new interest in music was brought about by the addition of The Record Shop, where students could buy high-quality music at lower prices. A popular new attraction in Alliance was The Court, where sports-minded students could stay in shape while playing racquetball, working on the weight machine, or relaxing in the whirlpool. The young people of Alliance are not deprived in the entertainment department, as there are several possibilities for people of every interest, hobby, or lifestyle. The Alliance Theater provides nightly entertainment (or most people.Being Unique in School Activities is Merely a Part of Being Oneself Seniors Brian Lair, Kelly Irish, and Lara Dalbey combine socializing with homework while completing a term paper, as part of graduation requirements. Students find themselves captivated by a variety of songs ranging from disco to rock at a StuCo sock hop. Kitchen supervisor Dixie Simpson finds a moment to prepare a menu that meets the nutritional requirements of the students. 10High school plays an important part in everyone's life. Each individual is different from one another, being unique in their own way. Whether it's talent, interests, or personality, students can express themselves through academics, organizations, athletics, and extra-curricular activities. School life not only involves the students, but international affairs also play an avid part in the society in which they live. As elections drew near, seniors found themselves confronting controversial issues, as well as the responsibilities of voting. Key names in the upcoming Presidential election include School Nurse Mrs. Thelma Merritt weighs and measures Juanita Straach as part of her yearly rounds. Reagan, Carter, Brown, and Kennedy. One current event which created continuous student interest was the deposed Shah of Iran, undergoing treatments for cancer in the United States. In the meantime, Iranian students took over the U. S. Embassy in Tehran, holding fifty American Hostages. The students had the support of the Ayatollah Khomeini, who was later named ruler for life. With the current events, both on the national and local levels, the students continued to be involved in the happenings of their community and country. Kirk Kedcr obtains a pass from Mr. Terry Trenkle before leaving the classroom. Tim Doherty shows his studious nature during his Sociology class. Mr. Steve Nelson aids a student with her vocabulary lesson.Fine Arts enables the individual to express himself through music, drama, and art.

With long hours of practice, optimistic attitudes, and faithful dedication, AHS continued Stepping Up to the high peak of perfection. Fine ArtsDirector Don Clarke is engrossed in the supervision of the AHS production of "Godspell." Through many long hours of practice, director Don Clarke was assisted by Tom Lauder and Norm Running, who worked with musical arranging and directing. Choreography for GODSPELL was done by Janet Clarke. The success of the musical was felt throughout the stage, as well as the audience, bringing everyone closer to each other. With the scene set as a school playground, actors and actresses danced and acted out the various passages.Godspell Brings New Meaning to AHS Jesus takes time to explain to John the Baptist that in the end.

'Mississippi Mud" adds a stepped-up beat to the band's performance. The Flag Team, Majorettes, and Marching Band, under the direction of Mr. Norman Running, spent many hours of hard work developing new songs and routines to provide entertainment during the halftime of all home football games. The band took part in the Band Day Competition held in Fort Collins, Colorado. The group received a II plus in the parade competition and a II in maneuvers. The Flag Team, assisted by Mrs. Mary Running, added a new spark to the band's appearance. With new uniforms of cream-colored gaucho pants and vests, which were accented with powder blue blouses and black hats, the eight-member group provided a new color and style to the band's performance. Members of the Flag Team and the three Majorettes attended a clinic in Wichita, Kansas during the past summer. The two groups learned new routines, in addition to gaining skills needed in developing their own routines. The Marching Band, Majorettes, and Flag Team added a much-needed spirit of enthusiasm to all home sporting events. Majorettes Sally Kirchner and Marie Mason lead the crowd in saluting the flag before the Alliance game. Not pictured is Voni Simpson. The Majorettes and Flag Team members portray the stone people of Bedrock to the well-known tune of "Theme from the Flintstones." 16Stage, Pep Band Promote School Spirit for Spectators The pep band radiates spirit for the upcoming Alliance vs. Gering football game.

Providing both modem and contemporary music for various community organizations is one requirement for those in the Blue Persuasion. Blue Persuasion, the Alliance High Swing Choir, acquired a different type of style, which included less choreography. With the continued use of stage boxes, many different settings were achieved. The Swing Choir was conducted by Mr. Thomas G. Lauder, who wrote and composed several of the group's numbers, including the group's theme song, “Blue Persuasion." In addition to the traditional school concerts, they entertained at the Good Samaritan Village and the job's Daughter's Supper. The final highlight of the year was the group's participation in the Swing Choir and Stage Band Festival held in Chadron, Nebraska, on March 17. The Swing Choir performs for members of the American Association of Retired Persons. 22"Shrew" Satarizes American Life Style Petruchio's domineering attitude is displayed through his violent courtship of Katherine. Gremio reveals his scheme to win Bianca's love. Arabelle and servants take time for a pose. The Thespian Troupe of Alliance High and the theatre department performed "The Taming of the Shrew" on May 8, 9, and 10. Love, marriage, sex, and money were satirized in the play, which centered around an elderly gentleman, Baptista Minola, and his two daughters. The elder, Katherine, the shrew, needed to be married before her younger sister Bianca, the snob. The play continued with Petruchio's violent courtship and marriage to Katherine. The set was designed by senior Thespian member Jim Podhaisky as a project, which won him a scholarship in the International Thespian Society regional scholarship competition. Similar to all other plays at AHS, "The Taming of the Shrew" was an overall success. Petruchio listens as Tranio explains his plan to Hortensio for winning Bianca's affection. The entire cast gathers at Baptista Minola's house to welcome back Petruchio and Katherine. 23Art Department Develops Young Artists Lorraine Bowman focuses her attention on the filing of her aluminum cast in her Art III class. With the addition of one new class and a group of new artists, the art department continued to upgrade its program. The seniors in Art IV were concerned mainly with developing into finished young artists. They did extensive studies in contemporary art, art theory and philosophy, in addition to an independent study. Art III developed young artists out of Art I and Art II. These apprentices of art worked on wheel-thrown and hand made pots. Much emphasis was put on water colors, acrylics, metal casting, dayhead sculptures and the development of drawing skill. Creative processes, concepts of design and composition in a variety of media were the goals of Art II. Art I introduced the freshmen to many kinds of art, including the elements of designs. A new class, general art, was for juniors and seniors wanting a first experience in art. Combining Art I and Art II, this class offered a wide variety of experiences for the students. Various field trips were taken throughout the year. One of these was a visit to Chadron, where exhibits of models constructed from drawings by de Vinci were viewed. Andrew Brittan attempts to remove Mr. Larry Mannlein's beard during a break. Heat is dispersed from melted aluminum, which Mr. Larry Mannlein pours into plaster molds. 24The tin can is an absolute necessity to the lost wax process of metal casting. Students work to transform their wood cuts into ink prints. Craig Mahnke adds the final details to the facial expression of his clay head sculpture of Batman. Contour drawing plays an important part of human figure drawing for the freshmen in Art I. Paula Daniels and Bruce Heckman carve the faces of clay head sculptures. Blake and Brian Mahnke work on a slab pot assignment. 25One Act Takes First Place Honors at State The inmates of Charenton look on as Charlotte Corday murders Marat, thus granting them freedom. Concentration results in a great character portrayal by Michelle Bilstein. Chariotte Corday is raised to her imaginary scaffold of inescapable death. The proletariat of France sing praise to their leader. Hard practice is required for Lara Dalbey's Oral Interp. of Poetry. The performance of "The Persecution and Assassination of Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade" took a first place rating in the state competition. The winning year was continued at the District Speech Contest in Chadron. In the individual competition, Jim Podhaisky in Oral Interpretation of Prose, Tom Adams in After Dinner Speaking, and Laurie Hoff in Oral Interpretation of Poetry all received superior ratings. The Oral Interpretation of Drama team took first place in district competition. In duet acting, Jim Podhaisky and Laurie Hoff also received a first place. Despite a respectable performance in the state competition, no Alliance students advanced to the finals.

For performances in "The Taming of the Shrew" were John Reilly and Pam Curtiss. With the help of these students, the Alliance High School Fine Arts Department was an overall success. 27A variety of courses ranging from physics to math analysis, to adult living and gas engines are available at Alliance High. With these courses comes a dedicated faculty staff cater- ing to the educational needs of the students. Teacher in-service days added to the consistency of programs within the various departments. Along with this consistency, the evaluation committees met to analyze the major goals and needs of the school system requirements. This year "AHS has Stepped Up" to the ultimate goal of achievement through Academics.Administration Carries Through New Policies Closed campus and stricter attendance rules were a few of the new school policies the Administration had to take action on during the 1979-80 school year. Superintendent Martin Petersen and Business Manager Bob Duryea, along with the members of the Board of Education, had their hands full, as they tried to keep up with the growing school system and its needs. In his ninth year, Martin Petersen faces new challenges of the changing decade as superintendent of the Alliance school system.

New Decade Brings Changes In Office and Staff There have been many changes in the office at AHS. There was a new attendance policy proposed by Principal Don Crowder. A student could not have more than three unexcused absences or eight excused absences before he was dropped from the class and assigned to a study hall. Mr. Dick Boness' obligations as activities director, assistant principal, and head football coach help to keep him busy throughout the school year. Another secretary, Mrs. Gertrude Shade, was hired to help Mrs. Barb Nansel with duties, such as selling lunch tickets, juggling schedules, and issuing makeup slips. Although Mr. Dick Boness was not new to the school system, he was new to the position of activities director, in addition to his assistant principal duties. He helped to start a new organization, the Future Business Leaders of America, and was instrumental in reorganizing the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Despite its many new aspects, the main office continued to be the vital force for all activities within the school. 31Library Institutes New Rules; Guidance Team Aids for Future The Library Media Center at Alliance High provided a resource area for quiet study. Reference materials, magazines, vertical file materials, and books were available to help students with assignments as well as leisurely pastime reading. Students and staff members did not agree with the hours the library was open, so during the second semester hours were changed to the convenience of the students. The library staff included Mr. Rich McCall, Mrs. Anna Prentice, and Mrs. Karen Piihl. Mrs. Piihl resigned during the second semester and was replaced by Mrs. Mary Running. Available to help and prepare students for college, the guidance team spent time in individual and group help. The staff, consisting of Mr. Bill Reno, Mrs. Eunice Peterson, Mrs. Oonita Potter, Miss Ellen Christensen, and Mr. Bill Furman, devoted their own time to advise students in college registration, class registration, organized ACT testing, and aided students with personal problems. Mrs. Anna Prentice, head librarian, establishes many new rules and regulations in order to make the library a quiet and relaxed area for student study and leisure reading.

The job of feeding almost one thousand people was efficiently handled by the cooking staff, headed by Mrs. Dixie Simpson. Mrs. Thelma Merritt took on her annual job of recording weights and eye and hearing test results in the fall. The custodial staff did an excellent job of keeping up the external and internal appearance of the school. AHS's dedicated bus driver, Dobby Lee, spent many long hours patiently driving students to and from athletic events, field trips, and various other activities. Through all of the commendable efforts of Alliance High School's various staff members, they helped to make school a more enjoyable experience for all of the students and faculty. One duty of Mrs. Dixie Simpson, head cook, is planning menus. Cooks are: Dixie Simpson, Joyce Lawrence, Elsa Smith, Maxine Culton, Margaret Garrett, Sandy Waldron, Nancy Smith, and Betty Robinson. 33Eden Edwards cautiously holds a pick-axe as Mr. Jim Kuehn prepares to strike.

Math Department Prepares Students For Various Career Futures This past year's mathematics department offered a wide and diverse number of courses to provide every student with the knowledge needed to meet graduation requirements. Consumers math, designed to teach problems in checkbook balancing and income tax filing, was taught by Mr. Jim McDermott, who was also head of the math department. Mr. Jim Hawk taught the skills involved in Introductory Algebra II and geometry. Two math courses were available to the freshmen, Advanced Algebra I and Introductory Algebra I, both instructed by Mr. Wayne Brown. Involving many fields of math, math analysis, the more advanced course in the department, provided excellent preparation for college. The math department and its instructors strived to meet the needs and challenging interests of each and every student. Mr. Jim Hawk records homework grades in his Introductory Algebra I class. 35Displaying her brass rubbings, Mrs. Kathie Jansante speaks to a class of sophomores. Michelle Bilstein finds that Mrs. Eunice Peterson can be of help when a question arises. Mrs. Sherry Yost checks over a senior's thesis paper for correct grammar, organization, and transition.

As his students discuss the life and times of Hester Prynne, Mr. Bernard Becker takes notes on their comments. Miss Pat Way, sophomore English teacher, and her seventh period class take time from grading grammar papers for a laugh. As a requirement for graduation, students found themselves taking English all four years to reach their goal. From ANIMAL FARM to LORD OF THE FLIES, THE SCARLET LETTER to ALIVE, literature played an avid role in the students' schooling. Grammar usage and compositions were stressed in the freshmen and senior English classes, while sentence structure and the proper organization of paragraphs were emphasized at the sophomore and junior levels. Vocabulary was used to strenghthen the students' knowledge in order to Mr. Steve Nelson, checks his lesson plans for his day's agenda. accomodate them for the society in which they live. All sophomores, with the aid of Mr. Bill Reno, guidance counselor, were involved in a career planning program. Establishing some personal goals, evaluating one's values, and acquiring a better understanding of one's self were all important factors studied. Once these were accomplished, students were then exposed to the many job opportunities available to them. 37Miss Alice Greve lakes a short break from her responsibilities as senior social studies and reading teacher. Mr. Phil Schweitzer and Deb Abbott attempt to resolve an issue in American history. Various Projects Enhance Study of Social Studies Abstract thinking, gaining knowledge of the past and present, and coping with problems were the main goals of the social science department this year. These were achieved by preparing stock market portfolios and character sketches, listening to guest speakers and taking field trips, along with many ohterother projects and assignments. With the election year drawing near and many national and international crises taking place, students had the opportunity to use their newfound skills to understand these situations. With many seniors turning eighteen and taking on the responsibility of voting on local, state and national issues, the experience gained in the social science classes will help the young voters to decide on the issues and cast their votes wisely and to benefit themselves and the society.

The word "Hummel" to many people sounds like some thing Greek. To Miss Pat Way, Hummels have become a very valued and rewarding collection. She began collecting these West German figures about six years ago. Since then her collection has grown considerably. As a result of her interest and enthuiasm in Hummels, Miss Way has shared her collection and knowledge of the figures through a 45-minute program covering the making, historical origin, and background of Hummels.

Despite a disappointing loss of the Western Conference title in football, "AHS Stepped Up" in sports with championships in cross country, wrestling, and girls' golf.State Trip Caps Off Harriers' Season This year's cross country team entered the year with enthusiasm under new coach Bill Beiber. By doing aerobic training throughout the season, the team gained the endurance needed for the races throughout the year. The girls' team started the year off on the right foot with a victory at the Cering Invitational. They also earned the first place trophy at their own Alliance Invite. The boys' team had one of its most successful seasons in recent years. The harriers earned third place at the Gering Invite, the highest the boys had placed in at least four years. The team reached their goals as they won both the Western Conference and District meets. The varsity squad, consisting of Neil Hawley, Kurt Seebohm, Dan Swesey, Mark Blume, and Andrew Brittan, made the first trip to state for the Harriers since 1975. An injury to Kurt Seebohm at the Kearney course caused the team to drop several places in the team scoring. With the addition of a girls' state meet and the lengthening of the boys' course, the Alliance High crosscountry team hopes to continue reaping the awards of success.

The Alliance Girls' Golf Team had another strong season this year, placing consistently high at their meets; however, the girls found disappointment awaiting them at the Western Conference Meet. Due to a scorecard violation, Sue Cummings was disqualified, thus putting the team in second place. With the help of their coach, Wayne Brown, the girls made a superior comeback when they traveled to Chadron for district competition. Alliance won the meet, which enabled them to attend the state meet in Lincoln for the third year in a row. They made a major improvement at the state meet, placing sixth out of fifteen teams, compared to a fifteenth placing the previous year. Despite the fact the team will lose six girls to graduation, the female linksters have the necessary depth for another successful season.

The boys' golf team at AHS entered the year with hopes of defending their Class B State Grass Greens Championship. The team looked like it would have a chance of doing just that after the first meet, the Sidney Invitational, when they finished second by five strokes to Class A Scottsbluff. That proved to be as high as the linksters could finish at a major meet the rest of the season. A lack of consistency and a usually weaker back nine score caused the drop in the team's placings. With five lettermen returning next year, Coach Wayne Brown's team hopes to improve next year.

The team worked hard to sharpen their skills before the first game. They opened the season with two close losses at the hands of Gordon and Gering. The team bounced back and played well to win a tough game over Ogallala and an overtime victory over Big Ten rival Kearney. The team participated in the Chadron Holiday Tournament for the first time in three years and finished in fourth place. One of the highlights of the season was the double overtime victory over Kimball. Alliance overcame a twelve point first quarter deficit to pull ahead in the third quarter and defeat the Longhorns by six points. Inconsistency hampered the cagers' season as the Bulldogs could beat no team twice, but defeated seven different teams, five of them being Western Conference foes. Even though a winning record was not achieved, many bright spots occurred through the 1980 season. Members of the varsity squad anxiously wait to take the floor and begin the ensuing contest. 69Cheerleaders Support Winning Season at AHS This year's varsity cheerleaders spent many hours practicing to compose new routines and cheers to support various athletic events. Miss Alice Creve took over the duties of former sponsor Don Crowder, towards mid-September. The reserve cheerleaders were assigned different duties this year, as they supported girls' varsity volleyball and basketball teams. The ten varsity cheerleaders followed the boys' football team and then divided, with each cheering on the sport to which they were assigned. Wrestling cheerleaders are: Bernadine Boness, Sue Powell, Lynnette Lampert, Dee Gonzalez, |udy Smith and Lori Liggett. Basketball cheerleaders are: Donna Reeh, Peggy Wagner, Cathy Frazier, Anne Mundt and Nancy Fairbanks. Reserve cheerleaders are: Tory lossi, Darcy Cole, Lilias Smith, and Cheri Nagaki.

Tom Laing expresses his feelings after a bad call. With the aid of megaphones and strong vocal cords, the AHS student body combined their yelling abilities to form a Rowdy Section. The group brought freshmen through seniors, to replace the former pep club, and added a new sense of pride. Pep band and members of the student body unite to make the rowdy section a whole. Expressions arise, as the game goes on. 71Conference Title Highlights Grapplers' Season The AHS wrestling team entered the year looking to improve on previous accomplishments. With the strength of the team being in the higher weight divisions, the team got a good start in the early duals and tourneys. As the season progressed, the team continued to get stronger and kept working toward their peak. Entering the Western Conference Tourney, the grapplers were underdogs to the Gering wrestlers, who had won the conference championship six years in a row. But the Bulldogs pulled an upset and beat Gering by one half of a point in the final match to win the trophy. The team also had a good showing at Big Ten against predominantly Class A schools. Five members of the team earned berths in the became ill and could not make the trip. Brad Liggett injured his knee during the state tourney and had to withdraw. Tom Wildy wrestled his way to a third place finish in the 185-lb. class. Pat Casados and Brad Schnell each earned second place medals, at 98 and 167-lbs., respectfully. With all state qualifiers, except Schnell, being underclassmen. Coach Pat Cullen's team should continue to strenghten in years to come. Through victory or defeat, a variety of expressions tell the final outcome of the night. Jeff Schlichtemeier tries to free himself from his second round foe at Western Conference. Brad Schnell locks up with his 167-pound counterpart, while looking for a takedown.

Besides converting all existing records to meters, two new events were added—the 3200 meter (two mile), run by Deb Abbott in 12:47.9, and the 100 meter hurdles, run by Connie Drummond in 16.9. Brenda Borg set a new record in the 200 meter dash by running it in 25.9 at Big Ten in Columbus. Two other school records were broken at Big Ten: the 800 (880), run by Elaine Ballentine in 2:25.3, and the 3200 meter (two mile) relay consisting of Elaine Ballentine, Kelly Dexter, Kim Green, and Teena West. The contingent ran the relay in 10:00.1, which was the fastest Class B time in the state. The 1600 meter (mile) relay ran it in 4:13.9 at the district track meet to set a new school record. Kelly Dexter took nearly 30 seconds off the 1600 meter (mile) run by running it in 5:22.1 at the state track meet, which was good for fourth place. The only other points earned came from Brenda Borg, who placed second in the 100 meter dash. Alliance stale track qualifiers include: Teena West, Kim Green, Elaine Ballentine, Deb Abbott, Rene' Morris, Lisa Fischer, Brenda Borg, and Kelly Dexter.

The second phase of the triple jump is important to Bruce Heckman. The 1980 track coaches are: Jim Kuehn, Terry Myers, Randy Henderson, and Head Coach Steve Nelson. The boys' track team started the year with forty-three athletes checking out equipment for the season. With a strong group of seniors returning to the squad, the team showed promise to have one of the strongest teams at AHS in quite some time. The cindermen's first meet, the Kimball Invitational, which was held at Gering due to the inclement weather, allowed the team to see how well they were conditioned. Alliance finished second to Gering, but that was to be the only time Alliance was defeated by a Western Conference school. Alliance went on to four straight victories, winning the Sidney, Chadron Triangular, Chadron, and Western Conference meets. At the district meet. Alliance qualified eleven people in nine events. The state qualifiers were: Bruce Heckman, Tom Lawrence, Jon Briggs, Neil Hawley, Rob Flores, Ross West, Tim Manion, Pat Colerick, Dan Swesey, Kent Piihl, and Kevin Piihl. The team went on to finish fifth at the state meet, with Neil Hawley finishing second in the 3200 and third in the 1600, Ross West finishing fifth in the 300 lows, Pat Colerick fifth in the 400, and third place in both the 400 and 1600 meter relays. The fine showing by the 1980 track team leaves hopes that a tradition of fine teams will be started at Alliance High School. Tom Lawrence crosses the finish line first during the 200 meter dash. 76Neil Hawley leads all runners in the 3200 meter run on Alliance's way to a 1-2-4 finish in the event at Western Conference.

Spring Fever Mania Hits AHS Shooting baskets in the evening proves to be an enjoyable pastime for Fred War Bonnett. With the onset of spring comes the craving to get outside and do one's "own thing." The Student Council initiated this idea by holding a "Spring Fever" week, May 12-16. Unfortunalely, the weatherman was not very cooperative in accommodating with these plans. The only out-of-door "sports" events to be held were the "frisbee throw" and the "egg toss." The "sports" of the season, however, were not limited to the golf course or track. Many students and staff members could be found on the tennis or racquetball courts, motorcycle or bicycle riding, rollerskating, skateboarding, or playing softball or baseball. Frisbee enthusiasts could be seen on the school lawn nearly every day, practicing their throwing techniques. No matter what the sport, spring gave many students and faculty a feeling of freedom and an opportunity to put into practice any type of sport with which they felt most comfortable. Larry Hain concentrats on controlling the frisbee's direction on his way to the accuracy title. Catching the egg, Pat Colerick shows the need for subtlety in order to stay in the game. Mrs. Sherry Yost's facial expression shows the result of her catch in the egg toss. 78Letter Winners Honored At Athletic Banquet Most Outstanding Athletes are: John Engel, Tom Lawrence, Tim Mills, Rob Vogel, Brad Schnell, Neil Hawley, Brenda Borg, Kim Green, Pam Curtiss, and Beth Panwitz.

In November they sponsored a community information program, aimed at helping people understand toy safety. The girls put up posters in stores and used radio spots and articles in the newspaper. Mrs. Cathy Kloch gave a demonstration on the proper way to care for a baby. Some of the group activities included a Christmas party, a field trip to Woolrich to see how a jacket is made, and a mixed up dinner called "Rennid Ittehgaps". The menu was done in strange names so that the people could not tell what they were ordering. To gain more knowledge on the fundamentals of FHA, the girls attended a retreat, district, and state convention. Judges Tom Hoffman, Mr. Leonard Hartman, and Mrs. Carrie Ransom sample FHA's entry in the dessert category blueberry pizza, at the All-School Bake-Off.

Lori Liggefl reads the minutes from the previous meeting. Members are required to stand while reciting the FFA creed. 83Thespians With Talent, Activities With talent a definite pastime at AHS, Thespians found themselves dominated by theatrical activities. The Troupe was so busy with productions, speech contest and selling tickets, that there wasn't time to hold regular noon meetings. In addition to their participation in theatre classes, the Thespians staged "The Taming of the Shrew," with all members and initiates taking part. The group finished out their year's events with the initiation of nine new members and installation of officers on May 18. They also took a field trip during the summer months to Denver to attend a production by professional performers. The International Thespian Society awarded a scholarship to Jim Podhaisky. The scholarship was open to one who plans to major in drama in college. There were only thirty of these scholarships made available. The Alliance High Thespian Troupe had a successful year and looks forward to another fine year of productions. Thespian officers for the 1979-80 school year are: Vice-President Andrew Brittan, President |im Podhaisky, and Secretary-Treasurer Laurie Hoff.

This project was a success, making over eighty dollars. Other money-making projects were a sock hop, concessions, and selling ads to area merchants, to be printed in a booklet sent to local land owners. The Alliance Chapter of FBLA and its officers were formally installed by the Chadron State Chapter on November 30. The officers for the year were: Randy Waldron, president; Peggy Wagner, vice-president; Betty Milks, secretary; Sue Powell, treasurer; Fred Knaub, reporter; and Dale Hamilton, historian. 83Fellowship of Christian Athletes Reappears FCA Sponsor Terry Myers finds his mind af rest while reading the Bible. Alliance High once again had a Fellowship of Christian Athletes, after going without one for several years. The purpose of FCA is "to confront athletes and coaches, and through them, the youth of the nation, with the challenge and adventure of accepting and following Christ and serving Him through the fellowship of the church and in their vocations." Any boy in high school who participated in athletics, including student managers, could become a member. The group held "huddle" meetings throughout the year and discussed a variety of subjects. The club listened to tapes of various speakers and watched several films. They also attended a meeting in Chadron, where some college athletes talked about their experiences. The group also held a cookout in the spring. FCA hopes to continue to grow in the years to come with the addition of a girl's "huddle" along with the various expanded activities. FCA members are: Neil Hawley, Gary Hammond, Mark Blume, Mr. Terry Myers, Mark Behm, Monte Quick, Tim Podraza, Brian Lair, and Eric Edwards. Members listen to one of the tapes offered to FCA “huddle' groups. Members read words of inspiration in uniting God with athletics. 86Members listen attentively while important subjects are discussed? Officers are: Tom Wildy, sergeant at arms; Beth Panwitz, president; and Darci McClean, sec.-treas. A-Club Works Against Organizational Problems Despite organizational problems, A-Club was able to contribute to the improvement of Alliance High School. Using the money earned by selling concessions at home basketball games and wrestling matches, A-Club purchased new equipment for the weight-lifting room and also brought the basketball toss-back, which helped the players tune up on their quickshot. A-Club's future plan is to buy a new scoreboard for the football field. A-Club initiation was held April 21-25, which consisted of switch day, dress-up day, slave day, and T-shirt day. The A-Club members pictured above are: |ody Nelson, Matt Frerichs, Mark Blume, Tom Lawrence, Jon Briggs, Rob Vogel, Doug Smith, Tom Wildy, Vicki Hoppens, Kim Green, Tim Podraza, Rod Vogel, Brian Lair, Denise Preble, Tedi Smith, Mary Ellen Lore, Lisa Krause, Darci McClean, and Beth Panwitz.

Lavon Krejci shows her cooking ability as she adds the final touch to her dish for the fellowship fair. The new decade has changed many activities at AHS. Because of the closing of the State Council of Y-Teens, local groups were not recognized as affiliated chapters, thus ending the organization. Activities held during the year were: Patteran, Pizza Party, World Fellowship Fair, Senior Recognition Dinner, Mother-Daughter Banquet, and a trip to Rapid City. Approximately once a month, guest speakers spoke on topics of interest. Some of the speakers and speeches included: Sally Mannlein on spinning, Jane Nagaki on oriental cooking, and Maryetta Lyman on antiques.

Sets Higher Goals for Years Ahead This year the American Field Service sponsored a sock hop and raised enough money to take the two foreign exchange students, Luza de Maria Avila from Guatemala City, and Duangduen Bualert from Phuket, Thailand, to the Black Hills in South Dakota. Although the trip was only for one day, a good time was had by all. The A.F.S. club was not very large this year, with only twelve active members, but the club members have some new ideas for encouraging others to join next year. Outgoing President Tracy Thies reads the previous meeting's minutes. German Club Takes Terry Peak SKi Trip 1979-80 officers are: President Mark Empson, Sponsor Mr. Jim Kuehn, and Vice-President John Harris. The AHS German Club was open to all students who were presently or who had in the past taken German as a course. On October 19, they held a sock hop after a football game, for all students in grades 9-12. The money was used to help cover the expenses of their ski trip. In late February, five members and two sponsors went on a ski trip to Terry Peak in South Dakota. The club paid for all the expenses, including the meals, lift tickets, and gas. Brian Bowen and Suzi Martin represented the German Club in the All-School Bake-Off in April. They won first prize in the main dish category for German fish and bacon roll-ups. With a savory recipe of German descent, Brian Bowen cooks the winning entry in the main dish category at the Bake-off.

Deb Brass and Jenny Wegner proudly display their StuCo banner. The student council found themselves busy sponsoring sock hops, homecoming parade and dance, and Morp. They also held a new student dinner to help introduce the newcomers to the school system. In the fall, five of the members traveled to Ogallala to attend district convention. The purpose was to bring back new ideas to get the student body involved with activities that happen within the school. Alliance hosted the spring convention with several schools attending the all-day event. Students new to Alliance High find themselves welcomed to a "new student" dinner to help them get acquainted with the school system, rules and regulations. Sponsor Bill Reno makes his comments at the meeting. IDifferent faces, new attitudes and a variety of personalities are seen in the halls of AHS with each individ- ual being a person looking for his her identity in the worid. Students find themselves confronting local, state, and national issues, such as a third bond issue, the altering of the drinking age, the draft, and the election of government officials. "AHS Stepping Up" focuses on the students' individuality and their major role in school life and their community. 1 m Duangduen Bualert, alias Jeeab, enjoys the "good life" and people of Nebraska. Duangduen Finds School Easy, Enjoys Snow Leaving her small town of Phuket, Thailand, Duangduen Bualert traveled to the "flat land" and "friendly people" of Alliance. During her stay, she lived in the homes of George McNeil, Paul Phaneuf, and Howard Curtiss. School was much easier here than at home. One must pass all courses before advancing to the next grade. Dating is also different. Everyone goes out in a group, not as a couple. Jeeab didn't watch much television, but found the programs very good. Charlie's Angels was her favorite program and pizza was her favorite food. She disliked cheese and cinnamon. Having never seen snow, Jaaeb enjoyed the snow and harsh winter wind. After Jeeab returns home, she will have four years of school to complete at Prince of Songkla University, Faculty of Science. In wrapping up her year, Jeeab stated, "I will never forget my past year in Alliance High. Thanks for being nice and friendly to me. I want to say 'bye' now because I don't know if I could come back again, but I'll try." Luza, a Guatemalan pal, gives Donna Reeh a friendly hug. Luza's Impression is Friendly, Great Coming from Guatemala City, with a population of 2, 000,000, Luza de Maria Avila arrived in the United States for a second visit. The first was a vacation, while the second was as an exchange student, living in the home of the Earl Cummings. Her first impression of Alliance was that the community was small, friendly and overall, "great." She didn't care much for the American hamburger, but instead, Luza had a strong craving for pizza. School seemed to be easy and the classes were small in size. In Guatemala, one takes twelve elective courses; upon failing one class, a student must repeat the entire school year. Luza enjoyed the school tradition, such as homecoming and the rowdy section at sporting events. After departing from Alliance, she will miss her friends, school activities, snow, and the TV show "Mork and Mindy." When Luza returns home, she will go back to college, where she has six months remianing to complete her major in architecture. In summarizing her stay here in the United States, Luza stated, 'Thanks for everything and all the things that you give me in my whole year. I don't say 'bye'; I say 'see ya again.'" 94Class of'83 Makes First Debut in High School With the opening day of school, the class of 1983 brought a variety of faces to the crowd. A whole different world had opened before their eyes, filled with friendly acquaintances, new surroundings, and a whole new existence. Class schedules included earth science, math, English, and physical education, plus several elective courses. As a special project in Mrs. Donita Potter's typing class, several freshmen had the opportunity to send Christmas cards to the fifty American hostages being held in Tehran. The class of '83 was kept busy all year long, and will prove to be a vital part in the years to come.

The sophomores opened the school year by having an organizational class meeting prior to the homecoming week activities. Though the sophomores did not have a float entered in the parade, they did help with the task of decorating the halls for the week of festivities. Mrs. Donita Potter and Mr. Steve Nelson served as the sponsors for the class of '82. Upon completion of the sophomore year, the class of '82 had completed another obstacle in their journey through high school.

Jill Kirchner and Erin Edwards enthusiastically study their logarithms. 107Second Place is Earned By Class of '81 Float Entry "Bury Them" The junior class got a jump on activities by having their first class meeting on one of the first days of school. Throughout the year, several measures were taken to secure an outstanding prom. The class of '81 elected Denise Preble, Stacey Romick, and Tim Podraza to serve as class chairpersons to oversee the upcoming event. During the month of November, some juniors were given the opportunity to participate in County Government Day. With the theme "Bury Them", the junior class float took second place in the homecoming parade. As the year progressed, juniors anticipated their turn to reign at the top as seniors.

Vocational Opportunities Day enables students to investigate their individual career plans for the future in various fields of employment. Dan Frazier and Don O'Leary may appear to be in shop class, but there is no limit as to how far their minds can wonder from there. Doodling helps pass 48 minutes of history class for junior Jody Nelson. 113Of the many different projects, Bruck Suetsugu, Lorraine Bowman, Linda Frazier, and Vince Vallejo choose to work on the construction of the entry way. wSS Tim Podraza, Brad Brass, and Eric Edwards find that decorating the ceiling becomes a very serious matter as the time for the dance draws near. Taking on the responsibilities of class chairpersons, Denise Preble, Tim Podraza, and Stacey Romick assume many hours of planning and organizing. The agony of decorating for prom catches up with Jan Bacon. Teamwork is essential for the completion of the many decorations. 114Juniors' "Fantasy Island" Turns Out A Success Royally for the evening are: Tom Klinkacek and Kari Daugherty, first attendants; Beth Panwitz and Rob Haslow, queen and king respectively: and till Green and Tom Lawrence, first attendants. Junior class sponsors are Mr. Terry Trenkle and Miss Pat Way. Many couples set their own pace to the various songs. Darci McLean and Neil Hawley take advantage of that long-awaited evening known as "prom" putting all other thoughts aside and simply enjoying themselves. Fred Knaub and Karen Smith seem to enjoy dancing to the sounds of the musical group "Agate." With a multi-pastel colored ceiling, tropical collages, a giant tiki god, and palm trees to carry out an Hawaiian theme, nearly 150 couples enjoyed the evening of dancing and listening to the music of "Agate." As the couples arrived, each girl was presented with an Hawaiian lei; the couples then walked over a bridge, past a waterfall, and through a cave to enter "Fantasy Island." Within the gymnasium, the walls were adorned with such scenes as a volcanic mountain, a desert island, and a treasure map. Fresh fruits, tropical punch, mixed nuts, and cake were served throughout the evening. Couples wishing to have their pictures taken as a momento of the evening could do so in the setting of a wicker chair, tiki god, and many colorful flowers. The juniors, their class chairpersons, and sponsors put in many hours of planning and hard work to present "Fantasy Island." Because of their efforts, Prom 1980 was a success in the eyes of those who attended. nsPolly Jean Ackerman Debra Lynn Appleyard Luz de Maria Avila Cindy Sue Frank Barnett One Hundred, Forty One Seniors Conclude Journey Through High School Many students look forward with anticipation to the year of being a senior. Once the class of 1980 made it to this level, they were kept busy with the various duties at hand, such as ordering graduation announcements, along with caps and gowns, having senior pictures taken, signing a friend's memory book, attending the class meetings, and involving themselves in the many activities that occurred during the course of the year. Although many long hours of hard work were put into the Homecoming float "Can 'Em", it did not win a place as a prize-winning float. Displaying their school spirit, a group of seniors, calling themselves the Senior Rowdies, participated as a cheering section during many of the athletic events. As the days became numbered, all too soon, the friendships and good times became fond memories in the eyes of the class of '80. As a journey through school for 141 seniors came to an end, a journey through life was just beginning.

Rob Haslow and Sally Dyer, honorary chairman and chairperson, respectively, oversee the starting of the CF fund raising Bike-a-thon. Members of the senior class had a special interest in the Cystic Fibrosis Bike-a-thon, held on April 19. With one of their own class members, Ron Haslow, serving as the honorary chairman for the event, participants canvassed members of the student body, faculty, and community for pledges, which will go to the Nebraska Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. With 99 people participating in the four-mile trek, approximately $2,400.00 was raised for the cause. Cystic Fibrosis is a congenital disease of the mucous gland's of the body. Developing usually during childhood, CF causes pancreatic insufficiencies and pulmonary disorders. Rob's innate interest in the Nebraska CF Foundation and his work for extended preventative research, coupled with his co-curricular activities, have proved to be an inspiration to all. 127SENIOR DIRECTORY POLLY JEAN ACKERMAN Choir 2,3,4; Girls Glee 2; Concert Choir 3,4; Track 1; FFA 2,3,4; All School Musical 2,3.

desolate after the seniors depart. Seniors scurry to the office for the long awaited hour of final checkout from AHS. Many happy memories fell to the ground as the demolition of the BN depot took place. As the year comes to a dose, the students and staff will look back on many special memories. The new 1980 decade brought victories, defeats, anxieties, tears, laughter, along with incurrable senioritis. Although time will soon slip away, the spirit and enthusiasm of events such as Homecoming, basketball games, Morp, sockhops, concerts, and friends will always be remembered and can be lived again in "AHS Stepping Up." For the first and last time in nine months, Lara Dalbey and Andrew Brittan clean out their lockers. 173AHS Will Continue To Step Up To Greater Things Senior annual members relax as graduation and the final deadline approach. Roger Smith displays his many trophies, one of which being the state championship in fuel econo- Senior choir members wait for their cue while rehearsing for upcoming commencement exercises to be held May The closing days of school are all but a memory of the past to remember.As school draws to an end, Dan Ellis becomes involved with Student Council elec Mrs. Carrie Ransom, Mr. Bill Reno, and Mr. Don Crowder are three of the many school and community participants involved in the North Central Evalua- I 1 2 Dee Gonzales makes her final stop at the office before going out and facing the harsh, cruel world. ZuJwSnBIBB - With Alliance defeating Gering for the conference title, the Bulldogs prove to be strong contenders in the years to come, losing only three seniors to graduation. In the pictures on the page I see the faces of yesterday. Vibrantly passing through my mind in their significance. Each face holds a memory, a particular moment in time. Each smile holds a dream, a dream we shared together. Though some of us will leave, the memories will forever be with us... We must hold on to what we were as we reach for what we might become. s T i Author Unknown
