Richard Todd from Josten's assists Michelle Forney, Janet Engel, and Kent Piihl in choosing their senior announcements.
The year started much the same at Alliance High School. The doors opened the first day to admit the usual stream of returning students. As the year ground on, enthusiasm waned. The seniors began to anticipate graduation and the underclassmen looked eagerly toward summer vacation. Finally the anticipated became the remembered and the school emptied for the summer. The wheel had gone round one more time. However, 1982 was in many ways totally unique. It was the only time that this group of 600 students would ever be under the same roof. It was the first and last time that all groups and classes would have the special identity that set this year apart from all others.
Yes, AHS has maneuvered around the corner of ’82 and progressed into ‘83. The traditions and patterns may have been the same as always but like a train going down the track, the scenery was constantly changing. Sometimes the background was cloudy and sometimes it was sunny, but through it all, the constant hands of time kept AHS "moving right along."
By the end of the second quarter, students are not only adjusted In school, but have really "moved in" to their lockers.

Current Events 5Homecoming Events
Homecoming festivities began on Monday, September 27 with Spirit Week. The following Wednesday was the annual decoration of the halls, in which juniors took first place. The light drizzle Thursday night didn’t keep loyal AHS supporters from attending the burning of the “A". Friday afternoon the coronation was held. This year’s candidates were: Mike Erickson, Mary Doherty, Brian Mahnke, Maria Davis, Tracy Rice, Michele Erickson, Kent Piihl, Kris Graff, Kevin Piihl, Eden Edwards, Chad Schlichtemeier, and Jody Jaggers. Brooke and Travis Schwartz served as crown bearers. Participating in the ceremonies were the flag girls, football players and past homecoming queens. Coronation was then followed by the Homecoming parade down Box Butte Avenue. The Bulldog football team took a commendable victory in a 25-0 game over Gordon. The volleyball team demolished the Gordon Broncs in their 15-13 and 15-5 win. All in all, Homecoming seemed to go smoothly because of student participation in all school activities.
"Victory is thine" is expressed by Senior Chris Panwitz as he runs onto the field.

8 PastimesStudents’ Unique Pastime Activities
Angie Moore displays one of her cases of insects.
Everyone knows what AHS students did while they were in school this past year, but how did they have fun when they weren't busy with academic work? The main activity for teens on weekends was "Crusin’ the Butte” as it has been for many generations. Although most parents have always thought this a waste of gas, they did it too!
On weekends, during the school year, one may have seen Kathy Bainter riding her horse, Misty, at Laing Lake Park. Barrel racing has been a specialty of the two. She has had Misty for nearly two years.
Entomology has been a longtime activity of Angie Moore. She has entered her insects in the county fair for eight years and usually placed pretty high.
Kathy Bainter and Misty go for a brisk winter ride.
Speed skating became a new interest in Eric Schafer's life. Up until last September, he was the typical roller skater, out to boogie with the beat of the music; as of the past year, he’s out for blood. He and 12 others have completed in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Part time jobs also have been in the focus of AHS students. The many eating places have provided work for many people. McDonald's has seemed to be the main spot for jobs.
Other extracurricular activities included playing racquetball and participating in 4-H. These took place throughout the year.
Even without all of the fancy malls and things of big cities. Alliance's youth somehow always found things to preoccupy themselves.
Pastimes 9Totally Awesome;
This past year seemed to be marked with new words, such as "ter sherr” and "tubular." However, one old word, "awesome," became a real "biggie." There were several connotations of this word. The dictionary defined it as "causing terror; weird.” The Valley Girls, a group in southern California, have a very unique language, which has spread to many parts of the U.S. The definition was “thoroughly incredible", which many AHS students related to. Awesome has described the students and school year at AHS.

Awesome 11Fine Arts
From the caveman, dancing around dim fires to placate his gods, to the modern performer, moving in an electronically controlled spotlight, art, in all of its forms, has changed greatly. Instead of painting on dark cave walls with a chewed-up stick, today's artist works in well lighted studios with mass-produced brushes. Art, whether it’s dancing, acting, painting, singing, or playing an instrument, changes with the attitudes and ideas of the time. From year to year and even from day to day, art moves and changes to express the ideas of the artist. Willa Cather put it best when she said, "What was any art but a mold in which to imprison for a moment the shining, elusive element which is life itself—life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose."

Miss Jan Swarthout, director, and Senior Tony Waybright, student director, were responsible for the fall production of "Where the Lilies Bloom,” which kicked oft the year for AHS actors, on November 19 20.
The first act began on the top of Sugar Boy, a mountain in the hills of North Carolina, where Mary Call and Romey, two of the main characters in the play, have just secretly buried their father. Throughout the rest of the play, the Luther children struggle to keep their father’s death a secret and prevent them from becoming wards of the county.
Kiser Pease, the Luther’s landlord, added flavor to the play with his persistent, yet unwelcome courtship of Devola, the eldest Luther child. With all this, Kiser and Devola got married, which brought this production to a very happy ending.
The characters who brought this play to life were: Mel Warden (Mary Call); Robin Sampson (Devola); Scott Abbott (Romey); Bethanie Meyer (Ima Dean); Barry Lamm (Kiser Pease); Kris Margheim (Goldie Pease); Don McDonald (Mr. Connell); Vicki Clark (Mrs. Connell); Linda Fairbanks (Miss Breathitt); Jerry Swanson (Gaither Graybeal); Mary Nolan (Alma Graybeal); Katie Chouanard (Lacey); Ralph Gonzalez (Chester); Jim Holdeman (Sammy Lee); Tammy Schnell (Hannah Jo); Jerry Swanson (Preacher), and 42 other crew members made up the production.
"Where the Lilies Bloom” will go down in history as another successful play production at AHS.
Fall Play 15The AHS Band Hold Their Heads High
Mr. Dick Rischling (pictured to the right) was a perfect example of "moving right along." The 82-’83 year was his first as band director in Alliance. A graduate of Chadron State, Mr. Rischling previously taught instrumental and vocal music in Grant, Ord, and Superior, before moving to Western Nebraska. “This is a big band, the biggest I have ever had," he said. He has high hopes for a productive future for the Alliance High School Band.

The Alliance High School Marching Band worked hard in all kinds of activities. They started off the year with a bit of both street and field marching. Many weeks were spent learning difficult routines and entertaining large crowds during parades and football games.
In order to keep this group at their best, the Majorettes showed their leadership abilities. They kept very busy keeping the band in order and at the same time gave the band director a break.
The flag girls were another part of the band who were very active. They performed individually as well as with the trusty band and enthusiastic pep band. They were sure to show at almost every athletic event.
These were all the parts that made up a good band, and as a whole, worked well together and accomplished a great deal.
Majorettes, Stage Band, Flag Girls 17Concert Band Seldom Gets a Breather
Aside from parades, halftime shows, and pep band, concert band found time for even more. A good part of their time was spent preparing for concerts and out of town contests. Everything from solos to the entire concert band was included.
However, the band would not have gone anywhere if it weren't for a little money on the side. Selling magazines was a major part of the money raising, providing a financial boost, not to mention being fun.
Along with money, perfection was also an important factor. From the very beginning of the year, the group began to prepare by choosing music and learning every note and rhythm to a tee, so when the time came, they could show their talents to an audience, which made it all worth while.
The time spent in class was very important and their hard work showed through the band's performances.

The AHS Band Officers did fheir besf to help out the director, Mr. Dick Rischling. Many things were included in their daily routine, such as taking roll during class and during performances. This job was given to the secretary (Maria Davis), while the librarian (Polly Abbott) had the task of taking care of the music. She was responsible for making sure everyone had the correct music and then filed it in the proper place when there was no more use for the music. The other officers did their duty by helping the director on any minor decisions that might have occurred. They continued to carry out those duties throughout the year.

Concert Choir was heard loud and clear this year with their notable performances. Mr. Thomas Lauder started the year off with a talent show, In which he, the choir, and several others worked many long hard hours. Another program that took a lot of preparation and hard work was the Christmas program. This concert not only brought 1982 to a close, but also marked the end of Mr. Lauder’s three and one half years of dedication to the school system.

Mrs. Marci Giles, the new choir director, picked up where Mr. Lauder left off and wasted no time implementing her new ideas. With this major change the choir as a whole didn't have too hard of a time adjusting. They showed their abilities to work hard and sing well and didn’t once hesitate to keep up the preparation for Wayne State. They kept the money raisers going steadily, with first the sale of magazines and shortly after came the sale of raffle tickets for both gas and a gift certificate at Jack and Jill. The biggest and final money raiser was the taco feed held in January. Along with this the choir had to keep up their rehearsals in order to be ready for their spring concert and Chadron competition.
The year was full of activities and changes, but the choir handled it well and with a lot of ambition.
Concert Choir 21E
The Choralettes weren't affected much by the changes brought about by the arrival of Mrs. Giles at AHS. The choral group, made up entirely of freshmen girls, undergoes a complete change every year. It is only through special auditioning and careful selection of blends of voices that each year's group is chosen. This same careful selection is what created the unique sound quality which made the group special.
Swing Choir started the year with a few new faces and a few new songs. It soon made its mark on the community through the dynamic style that set it apart from ail other choirs. After semester, when Mrs. Marcy Giles took over its direction, the students kept busy learning new music and choreography, and begun to utilize small stepladders in their dance routines. These changes helped to pick up the pace and kept the Swing Choir ‘'Moving Right Along."
Choralette members are: Susan Stinnette, Marilyn Higgins, Kim Merchant. Jennifer Kraay, Toni Greggs. Judy Lloyd. Tami Ushio, Kandy Bergen, Kelly Kaufman, Julie Grasmick, Wendy Miller, Kelly Penny. Joey Forney, Audrey Gonzalez, and Heather Brost.

Every year when any of the various music organizations within the system need financial aid, the first place they go for help is the Alliance Music Parents. Over the years, the Music Parents have purchased a piano for the school’s music room, an electric piano, and stereo and recording equipment. They have also provided new uniforms for the band student and helped to finance numerous trips. This year they helped purchase new flags for the flag squad and supervised the choir's gas raffle and taco feed. Each year the Music Parents provide scholarships for summer camps and sponsor the Music Parents' banquet. They also provide the chenille letters and pins awarded to students who accumulated the required number of points.
Music Parents’ fund raising activities included concession stands at concerts, collecting concert admissions, and the annual magazine drive, when students sell magazine subscriptions around the community. Many Music Parents act as supervisors on tours and trips.
The Music Parents exist primarily to support high school music students and organizations. They promote the best interests and quality of the music programs, and will continue to back music in all their endeavors.

Art students displayed their work on the main hall bulletin board during the year. This display changed often, giving the student body a view of the different aspects of art. Art classes offered again were: Art I, an introduction into art history, drawing and some painting and pottery. Sophomores found themselves in Art II, an extension between Art I and Art III. They did more drawing and painting and were introduced to the pottery wheel. Art III students started to use oil paints, did aluminum casting and did more work on the pottery wheel.
Art IV was mostly individual projects of fhe students’ choice with a great emphasis in art history. General Art took a little bit of everything and threw it into a year’s course. Students with little artistic background found that this class taught them drawing, weaving, pottery, painting, and other crafts. Overall, art was an enjoyable subject for all fhose involved.
Art 25Speech Team Speaks Out
The year was a "peachy" one for speech team. The members started right off preparing for district speech, which was held in Alliance. Each member first had to decide on which event they wanted to participate. After finding adequate material to work with and spending several weeks of practice, the team took further steps to prepare by attending meets and competing with other area schools. The first meet of the year was held in Rushville, and several members came home with medals and ribbons, while the second one held in Morrill was just as successful.
After the speech team members had worked with the judges' comments and took time for a little more practice, they were ready for the big day at district. Everyone received either a superior or an excellent rating from the judges and four of the twelve members were able to compete at the state competition in Kearney.

Staid and boring: if asked to describe activities at AHS, that's how many people would respond. Yet, if they had stopped to take a closer look, most would have realized that no matter how stagnant an organization appeared to be, it was constantly changing. Members join and either quit or more importantly, try to change that group for the better. These are the

DECA —What is it? What does it stand for? How do you become involved in it? DECA stands for Distributive Education Clubs of America. To become involved, a member must be a junior or a senior in high school, and be taking a marketing class. The club's primary purpose is to give its members higher leadership skills and give a better understanding of the business world. DECA is under the supervision of Mrs. Pat Jones. During the year, the club attended various conventions. In November, the officers went to Omaha for a central region conference, where fourteen states participated. In March, Cheri Appleyard, Sherrie Wolvington, Janelle Daugherty, Boyd Lulow, Sandy Hamilton and Wanda Reynolds attended the Nebraska state convention. At state, they competed in career and business areas. Also in the month of March, the club sponsored a marketing career day for the sophomores at Alliance High School. This get-together gave the students an idea about DECA and proved to be a great learning experience. Because of this organization, many students have found part time and summer jobs which is what DECA is all about.
Dana Toedtli activates students' interests by talking about past DECA exper iences and her work experiences as a beautician in Alliance.
The officers leading the group through the year are: Treasurer Tina Hain. President Cheri Appleyard. Secretary Janelle Daughtery. Historian Teresa Weidmann, Vice President Sherrie Wolvington, Recorder Wanda Reynolds, and Junior Vice President Sandy Hamit ton.
32 DECAFBLA Makes “Cents” for Business
Despite most organizations being dull and boring, FBLA was one club that was active. Besides doing the usual club meetings and such, FBLA did numerous extra activities. In October the homecoming festivities were under the direction of the club. President Michelle Forney was mistress of ceremonies during the coronation. Right before Christmas, 21 members with the help of their sponsor, Mrs. Donita Potter, sold candy-grams. Students sent messages to friends, accompanied by a candy cane. The money earned was used to cover club expenses.
During January and February, FBLA club members sold ads for the ASCS book. The money was used to send girls to state convention. Those attending were: Jackie Chouanard, Katie Chouanard, Maria Davis, Dee Dee Deines, Michelle Forney, Leigh Ann Goode, Colette Jones, Sarah Lewis, Cindi Marchant, Marla Musfelt, Rondo Ross, and Jeanne Sterner. At state convention the girls competed in various business areas for awards based upon test scores taken there. FBLA enjoyed a successful year and bettered themselves for the business world.

Throughout the 1982-1983 school year, the FBLA officers keep club activities running smoothly. Staying busy, they assist the sponsors in successfully running business meetings. Planning activities takes up much of the officers' time. Those in charge are: back row, Sponsor Donita Potter, Reporter Maria Davis, Vice President Eden Edwards, President Michelle Forney and Sponsor Mrs. Cynthia Schwartz. Front row: Treasurer Colette Jones, Historian Sarah Lewis, Parlimentarian Jeanne Sterner and Secretary Jackie Chouanard. These people are the reason FBLA is having such a productive year.
FBLA 33"Quiet on the set" is what the Thespian Troupe 3146. show here. They include: Angie Moore, Bethanie Meyer. Joann Balderson, Mary Doherty, Kris Margheim, Jennifer Wasserberger, Don McDonald, Tony Waybright, Barry Lamm, Robin Sampson, and Mel Warden.
Thespians Have a Growing Year
"The 1982-1983 year for Thespians was a year for building and growing", stated Sponsor Miss Swarthout. It started out with the annual fall initiation. The three new accepted members included Mel Warden, Barry Lamm, and Don McDonald. These three got right into the swing of things along with other Thespians. The troupe attended the state Thespian convention in Grand Island. The convention proved to be successful and provided them with many helpful hints.
These hints were most helpful for the Thespians, during the Thespian play, “Meet Me In St. Louis." However they needed more than hints to put the play on, for money was needed. In order to do this, the active group got busy and built their funds through sock-hops, working the concession stand, and selling hearts for Valentine’s Day. The Valentine's money raiser not only provided the Thespian Troupe with a profit, but also provided the school with entertainment by the members of the group, who dressed up like Cupid and delivered the hearts themselves.
For a change of pace, Troupe 3146 took a spring trip to Denver. There they were entertained and gained valuable experiences by seeing a live production. For the last activity, there was a spring initiation which brought in new members to help the Thespian group grow for next year.
The Thespian officers for 1982-1983 are: Kris Margheim. president: Angie Moore, secretary-treasurer; and Tony Waybright, vice president.

Art Club: Artists of the Future
The Art Club had little time for relaxation from the beginning of the year to the end. They started out by screening several different T-shirts, with the main one being the club's own "rowdy” T-shirt. They also did this for several other school organizations.
The Art Club was always there to help others out. They not only screened T-shirts for the plays, but made the posters to help publicize it. They were also ready and willing to help out the annual staff by designing the division pages and the cover for the 1983 yearbook, "Moving Right Along”.
To take a break from their busy schedules, the group packed up and left for Denver. There they visited some private galleries. A couple of the places were the Denver Art Museum and the Colorado Institute of Art. The over night trip was very educational and inspiring the club members.
Their last event of the year was the spring fine arts festival. Here much of their hard work was displayed, leaving each member with a feeling of accomplishment due to the knowledge and experiences they had acquired.
The Art Club takes a few minutes otf from their work. Members are: Rod Vaughn, Sarah Lewis, Courtney Bixby, Brian Bahnke. Eden Edwards. Tim Kramer, Randy Coleman. Chris Panwitz. Blake Mahnke. Steve Stackenwalt, Mary Doherty, and Jim Harger.

AFS, the American Field Service, was on the verge of folding but received many new members this past year. Among some of their activities were the bake sale and Halloween insurance that helped Angie Moore fly to Finland for an exchange trip. Also, sock-hops and the selling of donuts and hot chocolate made the year a little smoother, financially. Rikki Jorgensen, the exchange student from Denmark, helped to inspire many new ideas as well as learning some from this country to take home to her friends and family.

The year was productive for FHA. Organizational meetings were held on first and third Tuesdays to keep things rolling. The potluck dinner at the beginning started things off, with the white elephant sale following and the biggest turkey contest being the highlight of November. Along with other vocational groups, FHA sponsored a sweetheart dance in February for Valentine's Day. Also, FHA traveled to the annual state convention which was held in Lincoln.

36 AFS FHAYNA Initiates Existance With Activities
Young Native Americans was organized last fall in Alliance High and by semester time, had nearly twenty members with Miss Alice Greve acting as sponsor for the group. The purpose of the organization was to involve the Native American students in school activities and to encourage them to continue their education after finishing high school.
Some of the activities they participated in included: bake sales in December, January, and February; raffles; and pizza parties. The money earned financed a trip to Rapid City in the spring, where the students visited the Indian Cultural Center, Sioux Pottery Factory, and Halley Park Museum.

Starting things off was the slave auction which made $441.50 for fellow member Mark Sheets, to help medical expenses from his surgery, along with boosting their treasury. The national convention was held in November in Kansas. Five delegates from Alliance participated. Livestock judging also went well. At Flyannis, Jo McFall was high individual in the Junior Division while Jamie Harris and Joni Taylor were members of the second place team. The Senior Division winners were Shawn Lore and Teri Walker. District judging proved successful with Wendy Krause, Lisa Pierce, and Chris Taylor qualifying for state.
Alliance Chapter hosted the district Vo-Ag contest with fourteen schools participating. The welding team, consisting of Bob Bush and Bill Wills, qualified for state competition. Two girls also applied for state farmer from the chapter. Lavon Krejci received the award in April.
Other projects initiated by the FFA were the safety campaign for the area, Foods for America with Elementary, and the Alumni Chapter.
The whole year proved to be beneficial for others as well as the Alliance Chapter.

The Student Council was kept on the go throughout the 1982-83 school year.
In October, thirteen members attended the Nebraska High School Student Council Convention in Columbus, Nebraska. The members attended seminars and workshops on various subjects. They then participated in either an all-night dance or watched movies in the school's theater.
STUCO raised money through sock-hops and sold computer dating readouts and "I Love the Bulldogs" pin.
They sponsored a "Jesters of the Court" dance, naming the two funniest people in each class as the jester. Coinciding with the dance with the school’s celebration of their 93rd birthday.
To uphold the tradition that the Alliance STUCO set up, they again continued to work on the Clean Community project, which has been adopted by schools all over the state of Nebraska.
The Student Council had a very productive year, keeping the whole school involved in a variety of activities.
Student Council members: Joey Forney, Kelley Yost. Susan Stinnette, Adrian Gonzales, Carla Henderson, Joe Bowen, Amy Stephens, Candace Gaswick. Marcy Edminster. Dawn Snyder, Polly Abbott, Mary Doherty. Laurie Hatzenbuhler. Tony Waybright, Randy Stephens, and Mr. Bill Reno.

“The deadline is when?!” That was a familiar saying heard in Ms. Way's room. Besides hurrying to make layouts and writing copy, the staff was busy selling ads to local merchants and Ghost-O-Grams at school to raise money for the annual.
This year, four of the Annual Staff attended the Nebraska High School Press Association Convention held in Lincoln, NE. While there, they attended workshops on layout designs, writing copy, and coverage of school events in yearbooks. At this time, the 1982 Bulldog received a first class rating. Those participating were Tammy Schnell, Brenda Gonzalez, Kris Margheim, Katie Chouanard, and Sponsor for the trip, Ms. Pat Way.

The Spud, which is AHS's school newspaper, strives to inform and keep students up to date on school events.
This past year the staff approached Principal Dick Stephens to consider sending The Spud out as a newsletter to parents. The newsletter idea went over well and parents began receiving them.
The front pages always covered the activities and functions of the school, while the back page kept everyone informed with the latest sports action.
Changes were always being made in an attempt to upgrade the newspaper. The second and third pages had an addition of newsletter information to the editorial spot. The Middle School also included a page prepared by the eighth grade students.
“This year has been an interesting and rewarding experience. I hope that the Spud Staff was able to present the readers with stories they wanted to see,” said Editor Marcy Edminster.Cheerleaders Rally to the Bulldog Beat
Above, the Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshman cheerleaders proudly display the school mascot, the bulldog. Not pictured are Lezlie Adams, Mary Doherty, Nancy Hashman, Jill Moravek, and Lisa Pierce.
B-U-L-L-D-O-G-S, Bulldogs, Bulldogs are the best! was a chant that could be heard by the cheerleading squads during the many different sports events. This year a freshmen squad of cheerleaders was added to the Varsity and Junior Varsity groups. The Varsity cheerleaders were Eden Edwards, Janet Engel, Michelle Erickson, Laurie Hatzenbuhler, Kris Margheim, Brenda Hopp, Mary Doherty, Dawn Snyder, Lisa Pierce, Rhonda Johnson, and Nancy Hashman, mascot. The Junior Varsity squad was made up of Lezlie Adams, Lori Bearden, Pam Caventer, Jill Moravek, Gay Pederson, and Julie Hirter. The Freshmen squad was made up of Audrey Gonzalez, Jerri Ison, Tammy Lloyd, Nancy Schnell, Robin Tucker, Susan Turgeon, and Christie Bright, mascot. The cheerleaders had three main money-raising projects. Over the summer they held a car wash and when school resumed they sold candy and raffled off a case of pop. The cheerleaders were sponsored by Ms. Noel Ewing, the middle school art teacher.

A-Club officers tor the '82-'83 school year are: Randy St phens, Chad Schlichtemeier, and Maria Davis.
A-Club is a group of sports letterwinners, both girls and boys, that work towards the betterment of sports activities.
Initiation Into this club involved a switch day, blue and white day, dress-up day, inside-out day, and A-Club T-shirt day. The final step in initiations was to be spanked with a paddle by a veteran member that was made by the initiate.
To raise money this year the club held a car wash and kept up the tradition of running the concession stand at home games. A-Club donated money for the purchasing of weights and bought the Western Conference T-shirts for the wrestlers.
Cheering along with the cheerleaders at home and away games, one could find members of a new organization, Pep Club. Although off to a slow start, the Pep Club sold “AHS Rowdies" T-shirts to be worn while cheering at these games. The officers for the 82-83 year were: Colette Jones, president; Maria Davis, vice-president: Nolene Roten, secretary-treasurer; and Sponsor Ms. Ardinger.
Working towards helping the AHS athletes was a goal for which both A-Club and Pep Club members were able to strive.

With his feet pounding out a desperate beat, the runner pushes himself to his limit, as he strives to reach the beckoning tape. The scene could have been twenty years ago or yesterday, on the track or In the gym; it wouldn’t really matter because the goal is always the same. The search for excellence and the struggle for victory are what kept the athletes going during all the long, hard practices. A touch of individuality does remain. It shows in the amount of work each team member does and how each responds to victory and defeat. The sports themselves rarely change, but the teams and individuals who compose them are constantly evolving.

The AHS Bulldogs had a very impressive season, ending with a 6-2 mark and a first ever Western Conference Championship, breaking almost two decades of losing or tying seasons, with a final state rating of ninth among class B schools. This all could be attributed to second year Coach Skip Olds and the dedication from the team members. The team members prepared for the '82 season by spending most of their summer in the Bulldog's conditioning program. Olds spoke about the program, "We have to work out all summer long just to stay even with the area teams we compete against. It’s not an advantage if we lift weights; its a disadvantage if we don't.”
Alliance also had individual awards as five members made Western Conference and three made Honorable Mention First Team: Chad Schlichtemeier, Jeff Tomlin, Randy Stephens, Rich Strang and Chris Panwitz, who also made all-state. The Honorable Mentions were Brad Beiber, Tracy Rice and Jerry Swanson.

Despite early injuries, the junior varsity squad made quite an impressive mark with a season best of 6-1, only losing to Kimball. They were under the direction of Head Coach Steve Nelson. The team was very young, consisting predominately of sophomores that should show a lot of promise in their varsity years to come.
The Freshmen football team had a very progressive season, ending with a season mark of 2-4. The team was plagued by many setbacks, as they were forced to change the line-up throughout the season. However, they still managed to improve their skills and basic ball handling techniques as the season wore on. The freshmen squad, under the direction of Jim Hawk and Larry Votrosky, should provide depth for next year’s varsity team.

Varsity Spikers Falter After Fast Start;
Three Spikers Named to All-Conference Team
The A.H.S. Spikers opened the season with a positive, enthusiastic attitude. All the girls had one goal in mind. . .STATE! After many hard weeks of practice and games, the Spikers ended their season with a 7-8 record.
The Spikers started their way towards their goal with two straight wins (beating Scottsbluff and Mitchell). Not far down the road the Spikers fell into a rut. Heart-breaking losses and friction among teammates hurt the team. To add to their problems, Senior Sarah Lewis injured an ankle in practice and was out for a great part of the season.
Lack of strong leadership hurt the '82 Spikers. While Coach Pilfold did an excellent job of coaching the girls, they needed a strong teammate to take control on the court.
Returning varsity starter Candace Gaswick should supply this type of strong leadership in the '83-'84 sea son.

Coming off a tough year last year, the Bulldogs fought with determination to once again be a "respectable" team, and they were! The Bulldogs ended a well-played season at the hands of state-ranked Sidney, during district semi-final play.
New Head Coach Steve Schwartz kept the Bulldogs going from start to finish in every game played. They kept their fans thrilled with all the exciting plays they used to out-maneuver their opponents.

The Alliance junior varsity and freshmen basketball programs are set up to help underclassmen get valuable experience by receiving more playing time. Sophomores such as Todd Sampson, Rusty Heckman, Denis Dunbar, Scott Hiatt, Doug Wilkinson, Coy Hoover, and Dan Nelson gained much experience through JV playing and each could be string contenders for one of the five varsity starting positions next year.
Juniors Russ Muller, Kenny Erickson, and Paul Lauder also gained much experience, and they too will be possible varsity "stars" next year.

The Alliance High Freshmen also had a very successful 1982-1983 basketball season. With members such as Doug Hart, David Heckman, and many other excellent freshmen players, it was no wonder they did so well. Each freshman adjusted to the more "aggressive" play that starts in high school. To say the least, these players, both Junior Varsity and Freshmen, will have a definite part in the Bulldog teams in the years to come.

58 JV Freshmen Boys' BasketballFrosh Improve Techniques; J.V.’s Gain
Although the freshmen girls’ basketball team posted a 4-8 record, their techniques in ball handling and defense were greatly improved. However their inability to make baskets proved to be their downfall. As Coach Larry Yost said, “When you shoot 61 times and only make two baskets, you don’t win many ball games.” This year's junior varsity team posted a disappointing 3-9 record; however, most of the team was composed of sophomores, so they gained valuable playing experience for next year. The team was coached by Assistant Coach Terri Shoop and Coach Tim Page.

The Alliance girls' basketball team ended a very successful season with an 8-11 record and a very respectable second place in District competition.
Final season statistics found Senior Sarah Lewis leading in field goal percentage and rebounding. The steals category was led by Maria Davis, also a senior. Finally, the free throw percentage, scoring, and assists were led by Sophomore Amy Stephens.
With the emergence of Stephens, the lone AHS player named to the All Western Conference first team, the team was at times no less than brilliant.
Alliance’s youth and depth throughout the team promises a bright outlook in the girls' basketball program. With dedicated coaching from Tim Page and Teri Shoop and a little luck, a long awaited Western Conference power is bound to be inevitable at AHS.

Varsity and Reserve Wrestling 63Experience Pays Off As AHS
The AHS track teams had a very strong showing during the 1983 season as the team never placed lower than third in any major meet. The seniors, who scored most of the team points, accounted for most of the success; although there were many fine underclassmen to fill vacant positions next year.
The freshmen also had a very impressive season record as they always brought home either a first or second place finish in every meet that they entered. To top it all off, they also won the Western Conference title to promise much success for the team in upcoming years.
The AHS varsity squad sent four members to the state track meet in Lincoln. Qualifiers were Brad Beiber, Brian Grier, Kent Piihl, and Kevin Piihl in the 3200 meter relay, Beiber in the 400 and 800 meter dashes, and Grier in the 1600 and 3200 meter runs. The team completed the year with a final rank of 21st among Class B schools as the relay placed third and Grier placed fifth in the 3200 meter run.

The 1982-83 girls' tracksters entered the season with a strong, positive attitude; all knew they would be top contenders for the district and conference titles. All had state in mind for their ultimate goal, but each knew the many hours of hard work that would be necessary in order to achieve their goals.
The team welcomed back three strong seniors whom they knew would be consistent scorers for them: Kristi
Ridenour, hurdles, sprints, long jump, and high jump; Kelly Dexter, long distance; and Teena West, long distance and throwing.
The season started on a sour note with the first meet being cancelled due to snow. The girls kept a positive outlook on the season and looked towards other important upcoming meets.
Eight girls competed at state: Kelly Dexter, Kristi Ridenour, Shawn Smith, Susan Edgerton, Mary Nolan, Michelle Rohr-bouck, Amy Stephens, and Tami Ushio.
Valuable experience was gained this season and all the returning coaches and participants should have a successful '83-84 season!

Girls' Track 67Booster Club Offers Support, Unity to School, Parents, Students
The Big A Booster Club got off to a good start with the Big Blue barbecue. This was not only a money raiser but helped to get enthusiasm up and to kick off the fall sports season.
The Booster Club bought the girls cross country uniforms, girls basketball warm-up pants, and another set of Olympic weights. Also, they donated $200.00 to enable a group of girls to go to a math and science workshop, as well as money towards the flags for the flag girls. The Lions Club, along with Booster Club, also donated money towards the high jump pit. Along with putting on new basketball rims and jump boxes for the basketball program, Booster Club has put in new runways on the track, helped install new scoreboards, and bought wireless headsets for various uses.
The Booster Club not only supported athletics, but everything kids were involved in. They tried to get parents involved to unify the kids, parents, and school system. Thanks to the Booster Club, AHS continued to make its mark with accomplishments in all areas.
Parents are always trying to think up new ways to support the many activities in which their kids are involved.

Athletic Banquet 6970 Academics DivisionAcademics
People come and people go, but some things never change. Yes, it's true that academics weren’t among the more quickly changing areas of school, but it isn't true that they never change at all. Slow growth and expansion were the keys to scholastic evolvement. Each new theory and postulate adds to the total body of knowledge as they accumulate through the years. New equipment, books, teachers, and approaches, do, however, give academics a different view from year to year. Each individual student and teacher relationship is different and all combine to set one year apart from the rest. However slowly It may seem, academics do progress as the year goes along.
Academic Division 71Contrary to Belief, English
Yuck! English! Who likes English? To many students, English is just a required class, but if one stops to think, English is one class that helps later in life.
Animal Farm, Romeo and Juliet, and The Odyssey were the main discussions of the freshmen class. The students also experienced lessons in vocabulary and grammar. Due to the excessive number of freshmen, two extra teachers were needed. Miss Greve and Mr. Furman each instructed one section. The remainder of the classes were under the direction of Mr. Net son and Miss Way.
Sophomores were exposed to the history of Nebraska as they read My Antonia. In the study of man and his environment, students read such literature as A Separate Peace and Idylls of the King. Vocabulary along with the introduction of a processed paper were also included. Miss Way and Mr. Trenkle taught regular English while Mrs. Petersen instructed project English.
Not escaping from the reading of Emerson and vocabulary lessons, junior project English students also had a new teacher. Mrs. Schadwink-el taught for Mr. Becker the entire year. Mr. Trenkle taught regular English.
Seniors experienced English literature, as well as a critical analysis paper, and a general review of sentence structures. Mrs. Yost taught regular English, while Mrs. Petersen instructed project English.
All in all, English wasn’t such a bad class! Required or not, English could be and was a very interesting class.
Looking over his shoulder. Sophomore Tyler Winkler sees if his answers to My Antonia study guide questions compare to those of Pam Appleyard.
Individually or in a group effort, freshmen try to understand the concept of a satire as in Animal Farm.

In his fourth hour Introductory Algebra One class. Math Instructor Mr. Brown works number problems dealing with line graphs and inequalities.
Can 2+2=1? One may be interested to know there is a strange number system in which 1+2=0 and 2+2=1. It has three members and is called a finite field. Math students were introduced to these types of problems, plus a lot more. Algebra, popular with freshmen, taught how to solve equations which came from story problems, graphs or the book. After taking Algebra, a student could either choose Geometry or Advanced Algebra. Geometry introduced a math system that forms around points, lines and planes. Seniors could take Math Analysis if they chose to pursue themselves a math career. This class dealt with trig, logarithms and probability. Everyday Math, Business Math and Consumers Math could also be taken to make students more aware of the math world around them.
Alliance High offered a variety of classes to help fill graduation requirements and to prepare students for the future.
Using available time. Sophomores Tom Bea gle and Kirt Kerr work on a geometry assignment.In science. Kelly Kaufman and Julie Grasmick find discovering rocks and minerals found in fhe earth very amusing.
Modern biology students were exposed to the world of bacterid. Demonstrating the learning process is Junior Amanda Heitz.
Biomistear science. What is this? In science class this year, students learned how the sciences related to each other, plus they explored the depths of each field. The first part of the biomistear, biology, taught students about cells, bacteria and life systems. Chemistry, the second part of biomistear, made students more aware of atoms, molecules and compounds. Both of these were offered on two levels, modern and general. The last part of biomistear is earth science. This introduced students to the history and makeup of the earth. By taking a part of biomistear, a student learned more about the how's and why’s of the many different science areas and their relationships to one another.
The best wdy to learn is by doing. Kirt Kerr and Mike Foos ledrn about freezing things
in liquid nitrogen, as chemistry teacher. Mr. Marchant, supervises.
Science 75Communication, Fine Arts Strengthen
Uh-one, uh-two, uh-one-two-three-four was a sound that could be heard coming from the band choir room. Both departments underwent changes and saw new faces. Mr. Dick Rischling took over as band director, bringing new ideas into the school system. During the year, the band performed at football halftime, provided a pep band for home sporting events and delighted the community with numerous concerts. Mrs. Marci Giles replaced Mr. Thomas Lauder who resigned after three and one-half years of service. Choralettes, swing choir and concert choir made a change from classical to secular music. Like the band, the choirs did numerous concerts and prepared for the trip to Wayne State Music Festival in March.
Randy Coleman shows his artistic ability and his steady hand while completing a wheel-thrown pot in senior art class.
There are a variety ot ways to communicate. Expressions are one way Denis Dunbar. Dan Hempel. Jett Bruntz and Bret Cottrell display the typical Monday look towards Spanish class.
Students are always looking for a way to express themselves. By taking art, students found various ways of showing their feelings through their work. Art was offered on four levels. The first introduced the fundamentals and then they increased in difficulty. Mr. Larry Mannlein and his art students kept busy finding ways to show their true selves.
Ever wonder how to do a guillotine? Kevin Hoppens. along with Kirt Kerr, demonstrates wrestling procedures during speech class.

How does one communicate with others? There were many courses taught that helped with communication problems. Speech taught students to present their thoughts in an organized manner with confidence. Theatre class gave on-the-spot involvement in plays. Students learned about all phases of a theatrical production. Both were taught by Ms. Jan Swarthout. Foreign languages informed students about countries and their culture. Spanish, taught by Mrs. Lila Fiebig, and German, taught by Mr. Ivan Polyakov, helped to ease communication barriers. In all cases, students benefited by taking these classes.

Vocational classes provided students with a wide range of variety. Students seemed to enjoy these classes, as they had the chance to pick the subjects in which they had a special interest. These classes then proved to be very beneficial in improving and developing skills, preparing many for jobs later in life.
Business classes were popular among students of all grades, freshmen to seniors. These classes enabled students to perform all tasks done by secretaries and others with similar jobs.
Classes in the home economics department helped people deal with real life happenings. Various things from cooking to sewing, coping with marriage situations to decorating homes were dealt with during these class periods.
The remainder of the vocational classes were those such as drafting, welding, ag, electricity, woods, auto tech, gas engines, and house wiring. Many of these classes provided a knowledge of basic electrical theories, taught rebuilding and repairing engines, as well as the fundamentals of mechanical drawing, design, and woodworking techniques.
As can be seen, vocational classes provided students with much insight on what the real world was going to be like. With some basic knowledge and training, many were ready to take on the challenge of being on their own and supporting themselves with jobs.
Vocational 79Social Studies, Special Ed. Classes
The social science department at AHS worked hard to inform its students about the world around them. Modern politics, modern problems, geography, and history were among the classes offered to the students at AHS. A new course added to many schedules was modern politics. Psychology was also offered as a college credit course for many seniors. Juniors conquered the American History class which the school requires for graduation, and other students interested in social science became involved in one of the many other courses offered at AHS.
Each and every one of the students who participated in the social science classes offered at AHS can look forward to a well-rounded knowledge of the world around them; a world that each of them must face on their own very soon in their life.
Jennifer Wasserburger. a junior at A.H.S., works hard to prepare herself for an upcoming test in American History, a required class for juniors.

Mrs. Mannlein works with Suzy Zeigler on a special class project. Here they are shown analyzing different types of aspirin.
The resource programs at AHS were to help students add to their present skills and teach them to utilize these skills in practical ways. These programs helped students concentrate on vocational and daily living skills. There was a home living center where students participated in cooking and other home related skills. Juniors and seniors were taught vocational assessment skills, in cooperation with the Nebraska Western College of Scottsbluft. The major goal that both students and teachers strove tor was preparing students for the vocational world and helping them understand themselves better.
As in the past the kids and teachers looked forward to the Special Olympics, which were held in Alliance in the spring. In March, the kids also attended a Run-Dribble-Shoot competition; the contestants shot basketballs from six different places on the floor, plus two longer shots. After completing the shots the kids had 30 seconds in which to run and make a lay-up shot.
Each of the above specialized programs helped the students in the resource-special ed. department improve their life.

Weight training, physical education, journalism, and drivers' education broadened the range ot electives for AHS students to give them more enjoyment in an already action-packed day.
The Spud and Annual staffs were classified as journalism electives. Members of either staff were selected after filling out an application and receiving a recommendation from their former English teachers. Many Spud and Annual members attended a state journalism convention in Lincoln this year to get new ideas and learn how to make a better publication.
Composed of Journalism I and II members, the Spud staff produced the SPUD, which was the monthly school newspaper. It provided the student body with the latest sports and school activities and was also sent to all parents as a newsletter. The SPUD was sponsored by Mr. Terry Trenkle.
Sponsored by Miss Pat Way, the annual staff worked all year long by selling ads, taking pictures, and writing articles to meet deadlines. As usual, there was a frantic rush to finish at the end of the year.
With the physical education requirement down to one year, many students turned to another form of exercise, weight training. It was offered as a class to all students in grades ten through twelve, but many students preferred lifting on their own after school, instead. Mr. Olds, Mr. Cullen, and Mr. Yost taught weight training classes, but they were also willing to help inexperienced lifters train after school. Miss Pilfold and Mr. Cullen were the physical education instructors.
Drivers' Education was a defensive driving course which provided the less experienced driver with the fundamentals of operating a car. Both written and driving tests were given to test students' knowledge. If this course was passed successfully, insurance rates could be lowered. Mr. Shelmadine was the Drivers' Ed instructor.
Journalism Drivers Ed 83Library, Guidance Staff Services
The library had not expanded as much as in previous years. With only aides to carry out tasks, many things were slowed down. The library was under the supervision of Mrs. Lorraine Boness and Mr. Richard McCall acted as media specialist.
The guidance team, consisting of Mr. Reno, Mr. Furman, Miss Christensen, and Mrs. Petersen helped students with decisions and gave advice. These people were especially busy at the beginning and end of the semester making schedule changes. Mrs. Kathy Drake was the office secretary.
The school nurse, Thelma Merritt, was occupied at the beginning of the year chasing students for her annual health reports. The cooks spent many long hours each day preparing and serving meals. The janitors were also kept active cleaning during and after school hours.
What would become of AHS without the library aides, guidance team, and staff? It's hard to say. Many students take these people for granted, but their efforts are greatly appreciated by many others.

Ever wonder what school would be like without principals, secretaries and an activities director? These people played a vital role in the Junctions of the school system.
Mrs. Barb Nansel's main responsibilities were to hand out lunch tickets, green slips and type announcements. Mrs. Sherry Caventer was kept extra busy with attendance. She kept a very close record on who was here and who got those dreaded pink slips. At any school activity one could find Mr. Bruce Rockey. His duties kept him pre-occupied as he had to supervise any activity that went on in the school. He was always around to holler at students who ran through the hallways and to keep school functions organized. Mr. Dick Stephens, secondary principal, was aided in his duties by Mr. Dick Boness, who was the building principal. He could be found keeping students in order and enforcing the more strict attendance policy. Mr. Stephens was always busy as he had to be the principal of two buildings. The biggest thing that
he changed was the lengthening of the day and the dropping of homeroom.
The administration and school board’s main duties were to discuss school issues and make school policies. The major discussion centered around an addition to the high school in place of the bond issue. Joe Bowen, the student representative to the board, kept them informed on students’ feelings about school policies and activities.
College classes offered through community education were set up with the help of Mrs. Natha Wilkinson and Mr. Lonnie Sherlock. Mrs. Wilkinson set up classes primarily through Nebraska Western and Mr. Sherlock’s were community-geared.
These people were not always noticed, but greatly appreciated because without them, the school couldn’t function smoothly.
The future of the public schools in Alliance depends greatly on the Board ot Education. They are: Joe Bowen. Bill Burgess. Wayne Goff. Dan Contonis. Marion Moscrip. Gary Tomlin and Archie Lawrence.

Honor’s Convocation 8990 Classes DivisionClasses
Here today, gone tomorrow; that's the fate of all of the classes at AHS. From the time one stepped through the door as a freshman, to the time one stepped out as a senior, time seemed to fly. Friends were broken up when one moved, but friendships were soon formed as new students changed from strangers to old acquaintances. One class of seniors left to be replaced by a new and totally unique class. Within a few short months the combination of people and ideas that made 1983 what it was, evolved, reached its peak, and finally moved into history. And yet life will go on in AHS, following a new pattern, dancing to a different beat.
Classes Division 91Freshmen Become Adjusted to Cramped Conditions
The doors of AHS opened this fall to greet 165 freshmen. The move from being the oldest in the Middle School to the youngest, crowded into the freshmen hall, could have been traumatic, but as the days rolled by, most grew conditioned to it. It was evident that not only had they become adjusted in their change, but that they were ready to make AHS their home for the next four years.
Starting the money-making projects for the year were the freshmen sock hops. Class shirts were also designed with "86 Rocks On" printed on them. Many freshmen bought these to show their pride of being a part of the class of '86.
The 1982-83 freshmen class officers are: Nancy Schnell. Randy Hansen. Deena Contonis, and Tammy Lloyd.

Sophomores .... What can be said about such a class? Alot can be said of the class of '85 at AHS. This past year the sophomore class paid special attention to money-making projects in order to prepare themselves for next year’s prom. Some of the projects that were worked on were: selling cinnamon suckers for Thanksgiving: Bulldog sweaters, which came in light or dark blue; Christmas ornaments; dolls,
which were made to order; balloons; and dances. The money made this past year should be very useful for the future prom. All in all, it was a productive and busy year for the sophomores.
Sophomores 103Three Down and Only One to Go
With three years down and only one more to go, the junior class has experienced many of the problems of high school life. They successfully made it through the years of being just "underclassmen” and made it to the place where they could finally be the boss. Here, they sponsored sockhops, concession stands, a legs contest, and a tug o’ war contest. They also supported school spirit by selling "I love the Bulldogs" shoelaces. All this hard-earned money was then used to put on the main event of the year, prom. They argued over themes, bands, and all the little things needed for a successful prom. Besides this major task, they were faced with ACT

and SAT tests. They also began thinking
about their future, whether it be going on to
college, getting married, or just finding a job. Deanna Beckhott
Even with all these difficulties to face, they Chanda Behm
made it! Now all that is left is one final year
at Alliance High.

Juniors 105Juniors Participate in Extra Activities
Besides all the hassles of school work and deciding on a future, the Class of '84 managed to find time for extra activities. Many of these activities were school related, but they still provided a break from the same old routine. In October, pre-elected Juniors participated in County Government Day. Many students chose various sports as a break from school, and still others participated in music, speech, and drama. AHS also provided clubs for those that were interested. After school hours, many students had jobs that kept them busy. However, even with all these things to do, many juniors and other students still found time to have fun, party a little, and hopefully not get into too much trouble.

108 JuniorsCliques: A New Trend
“There was a lot more crossing of social lines. ‘Jocks’ were also 'cowboys’ and vice versa," states Mrs. Mary Schadwinkel about high school in the ’60's.

The junior class, as well as the rest of the school, was composed of many small cliques. The most dominant were the so-called “freaks,” “jocks," and “stomps”. As far back as anyone can remember, these three groups had always been rivals. However, as Mrs. Mary Schadwinkel, Project English II teacher, stated about her years at AHS, “There was a lot more crossing of social lines. Jocks’ were also 'cowboys’ and vice versa. I don't remember there being any 'freaks,' but we were a very straight class.” Lately, these labels have become quite deceiving, because, as many students have pointed out, just because someone was a “jock" didn’t mean they loved sports, and that peer pressure had a lot to do with what group was joined. These groups are continually changing and will undoubtedly still be a part of Alliance High in the future.
Greg Schrader and Ron Batt express different opinions ot Thoreau’s Walden as Mrs. Schadwinkel has class discussion.

After entering a long, dark tunnel, couples emerged from a magic castle to spend a wonderful evening at the 1983 prom, “Magic Moments.” A horse-drawn carriage approached the majestic castle, which overlooked an enchanted forest, complete with green elves as servers. The band, “Private Eyes," appeared to be floating among the clouds as they provided the entertainment for approximately 150 couples on the evening of April 30.
Dancing the night away, couples enjoy the music ot "Private Eyes” at the 1983 prom.

Prom 111Seniors Enjoy Their Last
The senior class of 1983 has anxiously awaited graduation day for the last 12 years. When their final year eventually came, they were faced with the business of ordering caps, gowns, and graduation announcements. Senior memory books were also signed and pictures exchanged. Deciding on class colors, song, and motto was another activity. They chose silver and burgundy as their class colors and a white rose with burgundy tips as their flower. “Magic Power” by Triumph was voted on for the class song. "To achieve all that is possible we must attempt the impossible, to be all that we can be we must dream of being more" was their motto. Besides these many activities, most seniors applied for various scholarships to help ease the high cost of college. Many decided not to continue their education but instead applied for full-time jobs. However, no matter what they chose to do, each senior cherished their last year at AHS but will now only have its memory.
Sarah Lewis, Chris Panwitz. Rich Strang, and Laurie Hatzenbuhler have a little fun their senior year as they compete in a "Tug O' War" contest.

Grads Bid Farewell to AHS
Before joining his classmates for the processional, Mike Wheeler adjusts his graduation cap to look his very best for the big event.
Seniors Tracy Rice and Mary Doherty are chosen as class speakers.
Life is so precious, but future comes fast;
Before you know it the present’s the past.
Time slips from your fingers like granules of sand;
The passing of time is something you can’t command.
Before you know it your childhood days are gone;
Without your security blanket you're forced to carry on.
You must grow up now, it’s time to face life;
Through good times and bad, struggle and strife.
There are good times ahead but only you make them so.
It's a great big world and there's so much more to know.
College is drawing near and so are the decisions;
Our lifestyle will go through many changes and revisions.
We still have our dreams and memories that last;
But live life to the fullest, because future comes fast.
Senior Index Graduation 127Ads
The community as well as the school has grown and changed in many ways this year. Some stores such as the Hanger, the Conversation Piece, and Martin's Mexican Food have left, and others like K-MART, the Book Rack, El Chaperral, and Coast to Coast have replaced them. Still others have gained a new look, such as Laing's Liquor and the Famous. It's still the same old Butte; it’s just the faces of the stores that give the downtown area variety from year to year.

Index 163AHS—On the Move
1983 was a year that followed a pattern made many years ago, or was it? Winter followed fall, and then was itself followed by spring, as it has for centuries. Sunrise followed sunset, day after day. Freshmen came and seniors left, while sophomores read Julius Caesar and juniors took American history, in a pattern that has been followed for years. However, under closer examination, the year retained its individuality, and continued a gradual kind of growth. Each class, club, and even individual existed in its present form for the first and last time.
