Opening 11982 Unveils Numerous, Essential
The place was Alliance High School. The time was 1982, a year when the time for change was seen by the administration. Change became the key word for the entire school system, beginning at the top with a revamping of the administrative structure, itself. Expanding from that were other "news.” A fund-raising policy for all school organizations, an indepth truancy policy and a new varsity football and basketball coach were just a few of the obvious changes. Found in the middle of all this newness were the students themselves, who were forced to adjust to the different people and procedures. Yes, 1982 debuted as a "Turnabout" at AHS.

Whether it's movies, music, parties or just being with friends, entertainment plays an important part in student life.
A poll was conducted with different "favorites,” and all the students at AHS had the opportunity to answer it. Because of the many different answers, only the top three were used in each catagory. It was found that students' personalities reflected the type of entertainment they enjoy.
Some “favorites” have remained the same for many years. Many types of dress have re-
mained popular, such as jeans, which range from the basic Levis, to $50 designer jeans.
Food is another "favorite” that hasn't changed much over the years. Pizza topped the list by a large margin, with tacos coming in second. During the lunch hour, many AHS students can be found at numerous fast food establishments in town.
With today’s easy-going society, students have the opportunity to express their ideas at home and at school.

Another activity this year was the “Western Days Celebration" in November. These two days consisted of activities such as a "Root Beer Drinking Contest," with Scott Littlejohn and Teena West taking first place in their respective categories; the “Cow Chip Throwing Contest,” won by Todd Sampson; and the Western Hoedown on Friday night. Country music was played between classes, as well as before and after school, and many students and faculty members wore western apparel.

Fine Arts—the expressing of moods, the telling of stories and the singing of songs. It makes no difference whether it is on framed canvas, in a deep base voice, in an affectionate love scene on a spotlighted stage, or In a back room where a musician Is practicing for long hours.
The fine arts change, shifting with the onset of each new mood. Yes, there are turnabouts. A simple, breezy ballad can In a split second turn Into a tumultlng, barrelling, thrashing, crashing final stanza.
Fine Arts is the expression of all people throughout this hurried macrocosm.
Fine Arts Is a universal language, a unity of life in Its many facets.
Fine Arts is the turnabout of every creative mood.

“Peace in the Valley"
Well, I’m tired and so weary, but I must travel on.
Til the Lord comes to call me away.
There the flowers will be blooming, and the grass will be green, and the skies will be clear and serene.
The sun ever shines giving warm endless beams and no cloud will there ever be seen.
There will be peace in the valley for me, someday.
No more sorrow or sadness or trouble will be.
There will be peace in the valley for me.
We remember Rock Morris (76), James Balderson (75) and Rob Haslow ( 80).

The Fine Arts of AHS consisted of six major areas: concert choir, concert band, swing choir, stage band, art, and dramatics, each of which contributed their own individual idea.
In organizations where there needed to be a group effort, teamwork was used. In an organization where the show was done by one actor, that individual contributed his own ideas, acted his own part, and set his own moods. But no matter what the size of "East Coast" girl Lizz Burkhart invites the audience to join in with the group was the final outcome was at
the Swing Choir in the popular tune, "California Girls." ways one Of grace, beauty, and Skill.
One of the most traditional ol the fine arts, oil painting, is colorfully demonstrated by Art Four senior Susan Vaughn.
Creative arts are expressions of moods; of individuals feeling the pulse of life. Some in a dreamlike revere and others in fluffy clouds and tall, green grass. And sometimes turning to the clarity of harsh reality; facing depression, rejection, failure, and often death. But always in a mood of that special moment; of birth, love, or a simple smile of happiness. All these items culminate to bring on the creative urge.

The Band fared well at the District Music Contest in Scottsbluff, impressed many judges and prompted one to say, "AHS band may well have been the strongest overall band (concert) that was heard at the contest." They also returned to Alliance with many superior ratings.

As one rejoined the story, Johnathan, the third and final of the strange nephews, had just escaped from an Indiana prison and had come back to visit his aunts. He brought with him his cohort in crime, Einstein, a seedy med school flunkie whose specialties were "face lifts and plastic surgery."
Johnathan and Einstein have brought with them their own dead body and before the scene ends, there are two dead bodies, five very confused tenants and an hysterical audience. As the mad cacophony drew to a close, the police got Involved and at the closing of the final curtain, the Brewster sisters attempt to run their death record to thirteen old gentlemen as they zero in on Mr. Witherspoon, the unsuspecting superintendent of the Happy Dale Sanitarium.

On May 5, 6, 8, and 9, 1982, Alliance audiences were taken back to the times of King Arthur and the Round Table, the time of ‘‘Camelot.” Camelot was this year's musical extravaganza. In this return to the medieval ages, the audiences were familiarized with the likes of King Arthur, King Pellinore, Sir Lancelot, Queen Guenevere, Mordred and the wild Fairy Queen, Morgan Le Fay.
The play has been widely acclaimed throughout the world and received much of the same response in Alliance. Costs of production, (royalties, sets, costumes, salaries, etc.) were extraordinarily high.

They were Barry Lamm and Jeanne Sterner, both in the catagory of Original Public Address. This was Sterner’s first year on the team and Lamm's second. Duet Acting, comprised of seniors Maureen Kelly and Lisa Renteria, doing a cut from “The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wilde," missed a state berth by a mere one-half of a point. Other members of the team were Sandi Hall, Angie Moore, Marci Edminster, and the Oral Interpretation of Drama team, consisting of Lamm, Adrian Gonzalez, Michelle Forney, Edminster and Dawn Snyder, all of whom received excellent ratings, and Ralph Gonzalez and Jerry Shannon, both of whom received good ratings.
The various areas of speaking that one could participate in were Original Public Address, Duet Acting, Informative Speaking, Oral Interpretation of Prose, Humorous Speaking, Oral Interpretation of Drama, (O.l.D.), Extemporaneous Speaking and Oral Interpretation of Prose.

While at districts, one of the two judges gave them a superior, while the other gave them a good rating. The group was rather disappointed, and afterward Miss Swarthout commented, "We did our best. I doubt I will direct another one act."
The play was centered around the past murder of John Wright. His wife, Minnie, was sent to jail for supposed murder. A neighbor, Mr. Hale, alerted the county attorney and the sheriff. The rest of the story was based on a dead canary and how the local women banded together to help Minnie Wright. The dead canary found in a sewing kit, was the apparent motive for the murder.

Art III focused on the serious student with drawing, painting, pottery, and sculpture. Art IV. designed for seniors considering careers in art after graduation, focused on style.
One of the new projects in art this year was a display of artists' work in the glass case outside the office. This not only gave the students a chance to exhibit their art but also allowed their fellow students and teachers to view their work.

28 Concert ChoirFestival or BUST!
Learning a new song can be difficult, but with a little concentration, it can be done as is demonstrated by the alto section. Tammie Kistler, Tonya Benda, and Linda Pebley work on "A Gaelic Blessing."
Tenors Tom Beagle. Jeft Harris, and Ralph Gonzalez rehearse the chorus for the May 5 and 6 production of "Camelot."
From the start of the year until March 16, AHS Concert Choir was what could be called “Wayne oriented." This was the second year that the choir made the 300 mile trek to the Wayne State Music Clinic Festival, under the direction of Wayne State College Choral Conductor Cornell Pumstead. The choir combined with fourteen other choirs from all over Nebraska, as well as Iowa, to form a mass choir and perform three previously selected numbers. The the single choirs each performed two numbers of their own to make for a very interesting clinic.
From the beginning of the year, many fund raisers were held to help off-set the costs of the two-day event, including two sock hops, two car washes, a Vocal Music Department sponsored All School Talent Show, which a seven-member band calling themselves “Climax”, unanimously won, a garage sale, as well as introducing the $1.00 admission policy to all public concerts.
In spite of and partially because of the day-to-day talk of Wayne, Concert Choir enjoyed its best success of recent years. Supported by a strong bass section, a very large tenor section, and complimented by a deep alto section and a well rounded soprano section, the group was able to do many more difficult and intricate works, which a few years ago would have been called impossible. The choir also enjoyed the experience of working as the supportive chorus in the spring musical, "Camelot.’’ Even though this was a new idea brought in by Director Tom Lauder, it appeared to go well.
Concert Choir 29Many Shows Keep Swing Choirs Busy
The singing groups came alive at AHS this year with an all new look and a dynamite sound. Under the driving direction of Mr. Thomas Lauder, the groups had perfection down pat. Yet as the old addage goes, “there's always room for improvement."
Choralettes, a select group of ten freshmen girls, were busy early in the year performing at various local shows as well as three concerts for the public.
Swing Choir, on the other hand, was strongly senior based and spent most of the first semester in the classroom rehearsing for the real thing. But in December the ball got rolling when the class began giving performances for the public as well as small groups.
Swing choir, better known as Blue Persuasion, were attired to fit their name. With the guys in casual gray crushed corduroy slacks and Oxford blue shirts, completed with suspenders, top hat, and bow tie, and the girls in two-toned blue wrap around dresses, they fit the name well, originally thought of by former director and founder, Mrs. Deb Dowling.
Attired in rouge red dresses and heart warming smiles, members ot the select freshmen group called Choralettes are Jolinda Sydow, Lezlie Adams, Maria Vasquez, Melody Pebley, Wendy Walsh, Lori Bearden, Lori West, Dee Dennon, Natalie Schmitz. Pam Appleyard, and Carla Henderson.
Blue Persuasion altos Vicki Hoff, Tina Wodke, Chanda Behm, Linda Pebley and Lori Clark take their audience to a world where dreams come true “Out on the Edge of Beyond."

Some members keep their club so strong, while others join just to belong. Some dig right in . . . some serve with pride; some go along just to do their share, while some lay back and just don't care. Some always pay their dues ahead . . . some get behind for months instead. Some do their best . . . some build... some make . . . some lag behind . . . some let things go . . . some never help their club to grow. Some drag . . . some pull . . . some don’t . . . some do . . . Consider . . . Which of these are YOU?
This was the thought of all club members, as they walked down the hall to their various activities. Whether it was before school, during homeroom, or at lunch, the school was always busy with meetings. Activities ranged from Student Council sponsoring Western Days and Freak Week, to AFS bringing Ton Coenen from the Netherlands. Even though the clubs kept the same names, there was a continuous turnabout in ideas due to a change in membership. Clubs, despite the many changes, will always play a major role in the activities of AHS.

A-Club started out the year with 83 members. These letterwinners represented football, basketball, track, wrestling, volleyball, golf, and cross country. One of the main projects accomplished by A-Club was the purchase of new Olympic weights for the hip sled in the weight room. In order to raise money, the group ran a concession stand during basketball and wrestling seasons.
A slave auction was sponsored by the Booster Club in March, in which members were auctioned off to the highest bidder. These slaves were then taken to their "master’s" house to do odd jobs. Sock hops and car washes were also held. All in all, this year has been very slow for the people in A-Club; however, with the number of active members returning next year, A-Club should have a productive year.

Chosen from various vocational groups, candidates for the Sweetheart Dance await the crowning of the king and queen.
Each week signs can be found throughout the halls announcing an upcoming sock hop.
Because of the cutback of many funds, both clubs and classes had to find ways to raise money. The most popular money-raising projects were sock hops and dances. They not only raised money, but also gave students something to do on a Friday or Saturday night.
Sock hops were split up between the groups and held after most sporting events. Usually records were played and a couple of times a disc jockey or the band "Max" provided the music.
The Sweetheart Dance, sponsored by the vocational clubs, was held in February. Being one of the more important dances, a higher fee was charged and no jeans were allowed.
Despite a varying attendance at these functions, the sock hops and dances still served a two-faced purpose—a necessary financial income for organizations and a sometimes much-needed release from the hectic pressures of the school week.

46 SPUDAFS, Exchange Student Benefit Each Other
Ton Coenen listens carefully to the details at one of the many AFS meetings.
Adding a touch of color to the halls of AHS was exchange student Ton Coenen from Roermond, Holland. Ton sees Alliance as a small village compared to the 35,000 inhabitants In the city of Roermond. Holland is one-sixth the size of Nebraska and has twelve million more people.
Entertainment is varied also, as the main idea of having fun in Holland is going to the kids' bar, hitting a movie, or listening to the "new wave music" called Reggai Ska, imported from England.
Just as in America, Holland has many fads, but one of the most unique ones is the way people cut their hair short and then paint it different colors, such as pink, purple, green, and blue. Another big hit in Holland, as it is everywhere else, is McDonald's! Even though Ton likes McDonald’s, he still Is a big fan of tacos.
Ton shouldn’t have any problems in asking for a taco because he has learned seven languages In his eighteen years: Dutch, English, Spanish, French, German, Latin, and Greek.
As Ton is off to St. Paul, Minnesota, due to the transfer of his host family, he has set some tentative future plans. He hopes to go to a university to study social health.
Ton will always remember cruising the Butte and the friends he has acquired in Alliance.
At the beginning of the year, AFS (American Field Service) started out with Sponsor Mr. Jim Kuehn and nine members. Two welcoming parties were given for the new exchange student, Ton Coenen. The club sponsored a movie matinee, held a sock hop and ended the year with a ski trip. After a great financial crisis, the group talked about closing the club but decided to hold out for the remainder of the year. As for the future, the club’s destiny is undecided. With luck, AFS will overcome its problems.
The foundation of the AFS club is its officers and their devotion towards AFS. Standing is President John Flarris and Vice President Chip Potmesil. Sitting is sponsor Mr. Jim Kuehn and Secretary-Treasurer Vickie Hoff.
Exchange Student AFS 47Sports
Sports took on several new changes in the 1981-82 school year. Teams reorganized to fill the vacated positions of the graduated seniors. Many new coaches added a new dimension to the sports scene. They used new plays, strategies, and techniques that A.H.S. had never been exposed to before. With the hard work of both the coaches and players, the success of all the teams will increase greatly in the next few years. Attitude, Hard work, and Spirit was the same old effective key to success. The turnabout in athletics was slight, but with the support of the Bulldog fans, the teams were able to make this a gratifying year.

The A.H.S. Booster Club, an organization for the alumni, parents, and businesses of Alliance, helps support all of Alliance High’s activities besides sponsoring numerous other projects for the students at Alliance High School.
President Tom Romick and his fellow officers, Vice President John Marx, Secretary Nona Roten, and Treasurer Lane Nansel, call a meeting to order every fourth Tuesday of each month.
By taking admissions at all home girls' amd boys’ basketball games and at all home wrestling matches, having a work day in which A-Club members worked, and serving bar-b-que suppers during girls’ district basketball, the Booster Club was able to purchase a new P.A. system for the North High Auditorium, from which many will benefit, and a hip sled for the weight room.
They also helped the flag girls purchase new uniforms for the basketball season and assisted in the repairing of runways for the high and long jump at the track.
One major project still in the planning is to paint a mural of different athletic events in the hallway of the North High Auditorium.
The Booster Club is an organization that helps promote A.H.S. on the whole. By backing most of the extra curricular activities, Booster Club has helped to better the image of Alliance High School.
President Tom Romick stands to emphasize his point on an important decision to be made by the club.
Open to faculty and parents as well as local businesses, Booster Club is supported by Mr. Stephens, Mr. Rockey, and Mr. Nelson.

The Bulldogs scramble to block an extra point attempt by the challenging McCook Bison.
"WE MUST, WE CAN, WE WILL!" Was the saying that Coach Skip Olds and his Bulldogs lived by to bring them to a 4-4 season in 1981. The sea son was filled with ups and downs, advantages and disadvantages.
Between the months of August and November, the Bulldogs played hard football, week in and week out. Between a close over-time loss to Class A Scottsbluff, and a disappointing loss to the 4th ranked Kimball team, there were many memorable moments. Some memories were happy, with wins over Chadron, Gordon, Gering, and the "unbeatable" McCook Bison. The undoubtable highlight of the year for the team was the come from behind win over McCook. The Bulldogs traveled to McCook to take on the Bison on their own turf during their Homecoming. The inspired seniors came out to lead the team to the final "hurrah" as the Bulldogs defeated the infamous Bison 18-17.
With the 1981 season behind him, Coach Olds is looking forward to a strong team in 1982. "Because of the hard work by our seniors, we laid a strong foundation for a winning tradition here at Alliance, and if our juniors work as hard, we will be above .500 in 1982."

Although the freshmen started and ended the sea son on a bad note, they kept consistent inbetween. Scottsbluff defeated them on both of their losses. In the Alliance Invitational, they earned second place by defeating Kimball in the first round, which put them in the finals. They fell to Scottsbluff, giving them a second place finish.
The main purpose of the sophomore team was to gain experience and knowledge of the game. They had only one win, which was against North Platte. Although their record was only 1-4, they put in a lot of hard work and effort. Hopefully enough experience was gained to form a strong J.V. team next year.

Alliance's only wins were over Gering, Valentine, and Chadron, while many of the losses were by only six points or less. Out-of-town games outnumbered home games by far this year, causing a lack of crowd support.
A turnabout occurred in the girls’ schedule this year. Two new Wyoming teams, Torring-ton and Wheatland, were added to widen the playing area and lengthen the season. Class A North Platte was dropped, making room for these replacements.
Despite their losing record, the girls never gave up and always played as a team throughout the season.

The girls’ junior varsity basketball team completed a winning season with a record of 8-5. The team worked to gain experience and to develop essential basketball skills throughout the year. Many of the girls saw quite a bit of varsity playing time this year due to a new coach’s strategy. Because of their playing experience, this team will provide a strong nucleus for the varsity squad next year.
As their record shows, the Freshmen girls’ basketball team started out strong this year and never let up. With an 11-0 record and a first place in the Gering tournament, this team has had the best record in the history of AHS freshmen. Their undefeated season and best ever record show promise and varsity potential. This year’s freshmen will provide a strong backbone for a successful reserve team next year.

The Alliance High Grapplers ended their season victoriously with a super show of seven wins, five state qualifiers, and only two losses. These accomplishments were a result of many long hours of training and an abundancy of wrestling talent and determination.
However, their victories were also aided by their supportive action and sportsmanship displayed by the devoted Alliance fans. Wrestling is becoming more and more popular, especially in the Panhandle. Thus, as the season progressed, the crowds grew, and many individual records improved as a result.
Many fans traveled as far as Lincoln to support the talent of state qualifiers Kirt Piihl, Rick Weber, Roger Hansen, Mike Galloway, Roger Timms, and Bryan Wilson. The trip they made was worthwhile, as Roger Timms earned a third place finish, and Bryan Wilson emerged as a state champion.
Thus, due to their wrestling skill and the support of their fans, Coach Pat Cullen's grapplers ended their season with a super show of many wins.

The 1982 girls' track season was quite successful despite many injuries that plagued the team and the small amount of upperclassmen. Two seniors, 3 juniors, 4 sophomores and numerous freshmen make up the small team this year. What the girls lacked in size, they made up for in desire and determination.
Six girls qualified for the state meet: Brenda Borg in the 100 and 200 meter dashes, Kelly Dexter in the 1600 meter run, Amy Stephens in the 3200 meter run, Kristi Ridenour in the 100 meter low hurdles and high jump, and Susan Edgerton, Michelle Rohrbuck, Kristi Ridenour and Brenda Borg In the 400 meter relay. The only member who placed was Kristi Ridenour who won the Class B State Champion title for the high jump at 5’5".
New records this year were set by Kristi Ridenour in the 100 meter hurdles at 14.8 seconds and the long jump at 16’11” and by Amy Stephens in the 3200 meter run at 12:16.
Due to graduation only two team members will be lost; therefore, a strong team is expected back next year.

A-Club Banquet 73Academics
Despite many changes during the year, students were able to adjust to the turnabout in academic studies. Some of the changes were a revamped administration, new class schedules, new teaching arrangements, and new school policies. Homeroom was revived during fifth period which gave students and teachers additional time for meetings or just to study and catch up on work. Because of the failure of the second school bond issue, teachers and students were forced to adjust to a larger enrollment with cramped and inadequate space. Even with a turnabout in academics, students and faculty were able to adapt to a new system to make the year successful.

The year ran smoothly for students with interests in fine arts and communications.
Art which was taught by Mr. Larry Mannleln was divided into four categories where advancement is dependent on the successful completion of the previous year. Directed by Mr. Norman Running, the band continued to provide musical enjoyment at both athletic events and concerts. Choir, which consisted of swing choir, concert choir and choralettes, required student try outs. The students were chosen on the basis of his ability to read and follow music. Choir was under the direction of Mr. Thomas Lauder.
Communications was made of classes such as Speech, German, and Spanish. Speech being a required course, gave the student body the chance to widen their public speaking ability and to get over that "nervousness” of speaking in front of crowds. Speech was under the direc tion of Miss Janet Swarthout. German and Spanish classes were offered to help widen the knowledge in foreign customs and customs of their own. These courses were taught by Mr. Ivan Polyokov and Mrs. Lila Fiebig, respectively.

Journalism classes, Driver’s Ed and Physical Education gave other choices to the student body to make the day go by taster and more fun.
The Annual staff and the Spud staff, made up the Journalism classes offered to the students. The staff members were picked on the basis of applications and the student's English teacher’s recommendations.
The Annual staff worked steadily all year long meeting deadlines, selling ads and taking pictures to make the 1982 yearbook a success. The Annual staff sponsor is Miss Pat Way.
The Spud staff, consisting of Journalism I and Journalism II members, wrote the school newspaper, "The Spud”, which went out every two weeks. "The Spud” sponsor is Mr. Terry Trenkle.
Many of the Annual and Spud staft members attended the Nebraska High School Press Association Convention in Lincoln, to learn new ideas to present the 1982 publications.
Driver's Ed was a new course given to students; In previous years this course was offered to students during the summer only. The course was taught by Mr. Eldon Johnson. The class only met during two periods and was worth two credits.
With the physical education requirement changed to one year, many students signed up for classes such as weight training and advanced P.E. to strengthen their physical endurance and capabiities for athletics, as well as every day life. Mr. Pat Cullen, Miss Sandra Pllfold and Mr. Larry Yost were the instructors.
With these classes being offered, the daily routine of school proved that school is not all work and no play!

By offering a wide range of interesting courses, the vocational department allowed students to break away from the monotony of notetaking and classroom lectures. The projects completed in these classes were based on situations similar to ones the students may experience in their jobs or lives after finishing school. For example, in the typing courses, students completed packets that simulated an office situation, where they practiced all of the necessary secretarial duties. Similar packets were also used in the accounting classes, in which the students pretended to be accountants for a large business firm. In home-economic based course, such as food and nutrition, child development, and adult living, students learned how to take care of themselves in the real world. They also participated in discussions, which put them in situations they may have to cope with later on. Students also enjoyed other aspects of the voctional department such as drafting, wood working, and auto-tech because they were allowed to use their own ideas in constructing projects and were provided with real models to work with. It is obvious that because the entire vocational department taught a great deal of knowledge through the use of enjoyable projects, those students taking advantage of what was offered will be well-prepared for their future lives.

Vocational 81Math, Science Courses Offer
Both the math and science departments offered courses which allowed students to advance as they desired. As freshmen, a required earth science class, dealing with the earth’s makeup, was completed. The department then branched into biological and physical courses. The biological area included general and modern biology and anatomy and physiology and dealt with man's development. The physical sciences involved formulas and ranged from general to modern and advanced chemistry.
The math courses also varied in difficulty. Freshmen were offered Introductory and Advanced Algebra I. Consumers math, dealing with everyday situations, and math analysis, designed for college preparation, were then offered.
Thus, these departments offered a variety of classes ranging in difficulty and allowed students to progress as they chose.

Freshmen students lead a discussion on short stories.
Since many students in all grade levels could be observed carrying or reading such books as A Separate Peace, Walden, Alive, and numerous others, It was easily concluded that the English department put great emphasis on the literary aspect. Through these books, the students were not only exposed to a variety of important authors while gaining enjoyment, but grammar usage, composition, vocabulary, and reading efficiency were also Included.
For example, freshmen and sophomore students were required to complete several projects, Including compositions, where grammar usage, vocabulary, and other writing skills were practiced and perfected.
Mrs. Yost refers her students to their textbooks in explaining proper paragraph torm and construction.
At the junior level, projects were also completed. But, the students concentrated more on gaining knowledge of such literary devices as satire, characterization, and materialism, through a series of panels.
The senior English courses studied all of these aspects and learned how to improve their reading efficiency also. They accomplished this by learning to read faster and comprehend more when tested with drills.
So, while students could be seen carrying Warrlners, Vocabulary for College Bound Students, and 3200 books, the majority of their studies were devoted to literature.

English 85Just as changes occurred throughout the rest of the school, new changes, combined with projects, kept the history and special education departments busy. The projects completed will also aid the students in their future lives.
Modern problems classes, for instance, dealt with situations students may face. As a result, they took part in a field trip to the jail, a lecture on drugs, and current events. As a new project, the class also raised money for scholarships.
Economic students learned about the government and finances. By compiling a stock portfolio and watching "Wall Street Week," they gained an understanding of how the stock market operates.
The major project completed in sociology was the presentation of reports based on biographies or autobiographies. In the report, sociological concepts were applied to the life of the person read about.
Different levels of study can be observed as students complete the questions on the War of 1812.
The special education department was also kept busy with many changes and projects. For example, the class received a new kitchen. This presented students with a better idea of independent life. The staff also consisted of three new teachers, Mrs. Jan Johnson, Mrs. Penny Hoover, and Mrs. Sally Mannlein.
Some of the projects included learning job skills, sewing, woods, and physical education. These were all designed to give the students a sense of responsibility needed in everyday life.
With the many new changes and projects, history and special education classes provided students with important knowledge and exposed them to life-like situations pertinent to their futures.

Ranging from cooking meals for hundreds, to cleaning up afterwards, the cooks prepared meals each day that school was in progress. The janitors spent time during the after school hours to keep everything neat and up to standard. Bus drivers donated their time to transport students safely from one town to another for various activities. The school library was open before and after school and during the lunch hour to provide students with a place to study. Librarians were always there to direct students to proper parts of the library and were more than willing to help locate materials.
Helping students with problems was the guidance team's main objective. Problems ranged from family troubles to searching for the right college. College preparations for seniors was by far the most asked of service for the guidance team. Reviewing of test results, or going over financial aid, college costs, college classes and scholarships were some of the many topics discussed by the team. No matter what the problem, there was always someone around to help.

The typing ot student schedules requires a lot of Mrs. Nansel's time.
The major causes for the turnabout at AHS came from within the office and administration. The rearranging and adding of staff mem bers, the revising of policies, and numerous other changes were the main causes.
After the resignation of Principal Don Crowder, Mr. Dick Boness gave up his responsibilities as assistant principal and activities director to take over the position of main building principal. Mr. Bruce Rockey filled the activities director position, while newcomer, Mr. Dick Stephens, became the secondary principal. Mrs. Sherry Caventer was also added to the staff, as she filled a secretary’s position.
Other changes included the revision of the truancy policy, new report cards, placing more emphasis on curriculum planning, and the addition of a homeroom for meetings.
The administration was also kept busy, as they considered making even bigger changes for the school. They did this by examining a third school bond issue and investigating possible alternatives to the overcrowding problem.
Through these and other changes, the office and administration became major factors in causing an AHS turnabout.

Scholarships were also announced at graduation, instead of Honors Convocation, to give the students more recognition, and several new awards were added to this year's program.
Music awards were presented early in the evening. The John Phillip Sousa Award went to Rex Laughlin, while John Jarris won the National Choral Award.
Science award winners were Jennifer Wasserburger, General Biology; Chris Jesse and Troy Roten, Modern Biology; and Peggy Thompson and John Reilly, Anatomy and Physiology.
Several business awards were presented for achievement in Typing I and II, Shorthand I and II, and Accounting II Wendie Henderson was recognized for her third place finish in the skills tournament at the National College of Business in Rapid City, while several others received participation awards.

Accepted into UNL's honors program were Peggy Thompson and Erin Edwards. The outstanding woodworking award went to Todd Land.
Student Council acknowledged its outgoing officers and representatives and Jill Kirchner, its outstanding member. Brenda Borg and Mike Galloway were also named as scholastic athletes.

Honors Convocation 93
Lori McClaran presents Shawn Lore with the Jaycee Award tor being the "outstanding teen citizen."Classes
Despite the halls being extremely overcrowded, new students were always easy to pick out ot the crowd. People grouped together and each class had their own small cliques, but everyone as a whole was part of Alliance High.
Seniors graduate and students move way to create a constant turnabout at AHS, but every student will always have distinct memories of the great times at Alliance High School.
94 Classes DivisionClasses Division 95Seniors Anxiously Count Down the Final
After many years of struggling to complete homework, passing tests, and staying awake during seemingly endless classes, the Class of 1982 approached the final day of their twelve years of schooling. Caps and gowns along with announcements were ordered, memory books were signed and senior pictures were exchanged to make their last year stand out from their other years of high school.
At the beginning of the year decisions had to be made concerning the class song, flower and colors. By ballot, the song “Time for Me to Fly" by REO Speedwagon received the most votes and was adopted as class song.

Thomas Alfons Andrus

A white, blue-tipped rose was chosen as class flower, with midnight blue and silver as the class colors. The class motto, "Accomplishments of tomorrow begin with the challenges of today and the dreams of yesterday," was chosen to best express their hopes for the future beyond high school.
Happy times that were shared with friends during high school and the years before will now be memories for the seniors to reflect upon and cherish forever.
Scott Hudgin finds that, although class discussion Is manda- Todd Jon Bandel Rodney Lee Bauer

110 Senior DirectorySeniors Make Their Final Departure From AHS
John Magdaleno and Jill Kirchner are selected to represent the senior class as speakers.
The hour preparation time before the graduation cere mony gave Deb Brass along with all the other seniors time (or a last goodbye to their high school years.
Graduation's a time like a looking glass, to look in the future or look at the past. Remembering the good times we all had and trying to forget the times which were bad. Looking back we can see all we did and the things our parents forbid.
We ended up in a high school hall pushed up flat against a wall We found some friends and found some fun we did some things never ever done.
But looking forward is the hard part, because each of us must look into our heart To find the things we want to be, either serious, radical, crazy, or the real me.
In times to come we'll separate and each of us will find his fate No matter when we go or what we do we’ll always be the class of 1982.
John Stull and Peggy Thompson are recognized as class valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively.
A few ot the senior guys wait until the last final minute to put on their robes before taking their place in line.

Playing a variety of music, the lead singer of "Fancy Kat" get involved in the performance.
Beneath a shower of blue streamers, "Sail On” was carried out as this year's theme for the junior-senior prom. Couples crossed over a warf and under a rainbow, to enter an ocean atmosphere. Underwater scenes, light houses, a sailboat, fish, and nets were used to carry out the decor. “Fancy Kat”, a musical group from Denver, provided a variety of songs for the enjoyment of approximately 120 couples, on the evening of April 24th.
Prom chairmen were Joann Balderson, fyiaria Davis, Mike Ellis, Janet Engel, Lisa Furrow, Kris Graff, Collette Jones, LaVon Krejci, Kris Margheim, Beth Meyer, and Robin Sampson. The 1981-82 Junior class officers were Chris Panwitz, president; LaVon Krejci, vice president; Collette Jones, secretary; and Brian Mahnke, treasurer.

Prom 113Juniors Take on New Responsibilities
The Class of 1983 found themselves facing new, different, and sometimes very scary responsibilities during the 1981-82 school year. Being a junior means creating and putting on the Junior-Senior prom. Many decisions had to be made, from the theme, to how to raise enough money. The Juniors found themselves faced without the usual allowance from the School Board, but the class pulled together with such projects as sponsoring sock-hops after football and basketball games, raffling off tickets to a college football game, and sponsoring a chili feed to raise money for the Prom's success. The prom theme, "Sail On,” was successfully carried out on April 24, 1982.
Taking a moment to relax, Juniors Beth Meyer. Kelly Dexter, and Kris Graff jokingly take it easy before they return to their stations at the chili feed.

Weekends were made for . . . having fun. No matter what one’s idea of “fun" was. whether at home or with friends, everyone always looked forward to the weekends. Activities ranged from skating at the newly opened Skateland to "cruising the Butte." If there was a good movie in town, one could always find someone at the show. Pizza Hut was still where most teens went after games, dances, or a night on the town. However, if one didn’t want to wait for a pizza, teens could order a Big Mac, fries, and a shake from McDonald's. The Happy Dog arcade was a popular place to hang out and play the many electronic games, including the popular Pac Man. Like always, partying was what many high schoolers considered to be a good time. Some teens chose to just stay at home and spend time with their family and friends. Being whatever each individual chose to make them, weekends were the most popular time of the week.

Along with doing everyday homework and taking the ACT tests, the Junior class began thinking about their plans after high school, Career choices had to be made so that college course requirements could be met. Representatives from many colleges visited with students to help them decide on future plans. Time goes fast, but the juniors still have one year to make that final, most important decision.

Juniors Underclassmen 119Sophomores Get Off to an Early Start
Friendship Is an important part ol school, as Wendy Krause and Jeanie Sterner exhibit.
This being their second year in high school, the Sophomores were accustomed to teachers, upperclassmen and rules. This enabled the students to mold more into a class as a whole. Organizing early in the year with the help of Miss Swarthout and Mr. Ackerman, the class participated in hall decorations for the homecoming festivities.
Since money from the school board was cut off for Prom dances, the Sophomores decided to get an early start. They began raising money in preparation for next year’s Prom. Class officers, Vicki Mandelberg, President; Polly Abbott, Vice President; Terri Ottaway, Secretary; and Mike Harden, Treasurer; were elected, and class dues were collected. Although their sockhop had to be cancelled due to bad weather, other money-making projects, such as a a bake sale and a car wash, were carried out. The Class of '84 proved to be a productive and organized group.

As we travel down life's road, wondering who we are,
We often look upon the sky, and glimpse a falling star. Walking down the road we'll see, a hand reaching out to touch, A friendly smile, a warm embrace, offering so much.
Slowly walking farther down the road, walking hand in hand, We'll share our love forever, from now until the end. Stumbling toward the end of our journey, which really isn't far. We'll reach ouf our hands fogether, and catch that falling star.

Sophomores Underclassmen 125Freshmen Become Use to High School
The future of AHS will lie in the hands of the Class of ’85. Even though they were only underclassmen, they soon rose to new heights, which will extend throughout their next three years in high school.
Their first year in a new school was difficult because of the adjustment to teachers, rules, and upperclassmen, which had to be accomplished. But starting out with more freedom than they experienced while they attended middle school, the transition to high school was less complicated. Also, with a better variety of extra-curricular activities, such as fine arts, organizational clubs, and sports, their year passed more quickly and with more enjoyment.

With the greatly appreciated support of the local merchants, the annual staff was able to present "Turnabout.” Inflation rates spiraled skyward, but merchants were still able to support Alliance High School activities. This at lowed many organizations to continue despite the school board’s cutback of the budget. Without the continued support of the Alliance businesses, most school activities would be nonexistent.

Well, another year is already over. 1982 debuted as a year of change in our school, as well as the world, but the students adjusted and reacted to all of the changes that occurred. Mr. Stephens and Mr. Boness fell into their new positions as administrators, and all the students began to like the new situation. Clubs and organizations found the new fund raising policies a little hard to deal with, but everyone pulled through it all. The new truancy policy was put into effect, and it had an impact on each individual by its wide spectrum of control. The new coaches coached their respective teams, and the athletes developed techniques and ideas which could possibly contribute to the rest of their lives. 1982 proved to be a "Turnabout" at AHS.
The football team has a final meeting before the big game.
Volleyball players Jill Kirchner. Maureen Kelly and Deb Brass express many moods before an important game.
School Superintendent Martin Petersen addresses the entire student body about the Clean Community System.
The Homecoming "A” awaits the start of the big game.
The 450 copies of the 1982 Bulldog were printed by Inter-Collegiate Press Inc., Shawnee Mission, Kansas, in cooperation with sales representative Norm Van Wyngarden. The book sold for $10-$15.00.
The cover of the 1982 Bulldog was designed and produced by Mr. Steve Nelson.
The Bulldog is a member of the Nebraska High School Press Association (NHSPA) and the International Society of Quill and Scroll.
The 1982 Bulldog was compiled in eight sections with the following students responsible for each of the sections:
Opening: Ann Langner, Shelly Reynolds Fine Arts: John Harris, Kris Margheim Activities: Tammis Kistler, Bessie Kochiras Sports: Rod Geist, Eden Edwards Academics: Kim Hubbard, Hope Monroe Classes: Brenda Powell, Kris Rieman, Chris Rose Ads: Sandi Hall, Kris Reiman, Brenda Powell Closing: Brian Bowen
Photography: Lorna Therrien, Mike Wheeler, Brad Maze, Ron Kollars
A special thanks is extended to the House of Photography, Gene McGiverin, Rich Jurgens, and Jeff Gonzalez for various pictures used througout the book.
Students' attention is quickly attained by this clever sign.
Closing 175To live your life in your own way . . to reach for the goals you have set for yourself . . . to be the you that you want to be— that is success.
