Students spent 178 days at school doing the same thing. So what made the 1983-84 school year different from all the others? The four seasons came and went just like any other year, as fall brought excitement for the return to school, winter culminated in the celebration of the new year, and spring brought along "spring fever." Summer, of course, meant freedom. Seniors anxiously counted the days until graduation just like any other normal senior of previous years, and freshmen took their first steps toward the big day. There were a few new teachers, but most were the same and taught the same material. Students were faced with the same classes to choose from, and the problem of overcrowding still existed. The Board of Education attempted new ways to solve the problem of excess students enrolled at AHS. So what was different about this year? Well, take “An Inside Look," and see how 1983-1984 differed from years gone by. Bud Hood and Dan Gerlich studiously work to identify different rocks in earth science. Is Alliance High in its own county? No, but that's probably what janitor Eldon Sample thinks as he removes the sign placed there by a group of pranksters Along with many students in the past, Missy Mashburn uses the hall to complete unfinished homework. 2 OpeningAlong with snow comes mischief which is proven as Michelle Rohrbouck is thrown into the snow by mischevious students during lunch. Possibly the most used piece of equipment at AHS, the pop machine is attacked again by Junior Leigh Ann Goode. Showing the serious side of Alliance High, Senior Mike Cover works out a program on one of the school's new computers A sight seldom seen—Miss Pilfold displays her school pride with a cheesy grin during Homecoming week. Opening 3Teachers Are Shown With Favorite Pastimes Miss Christensen tells that she enjoys making latch hook rugs, "because I can work out my frustrations on that instead of people." Putting in many long dedicated hours can sometimes really pay off. Contributing parts to the Noteables singing group are Mr. Rischling, Mr. Nelson, Mr. Mannlein, Miss Way, and Mrs. Giles. About her hobby, Mrs. Schadwinkel explains, "I play the flute because I enjoy music." A Christmas nativity scene made by Mr. Trenkle shows how talented he is at his hobby of working with ceramics. 4 Teachers' HobbiesMr. Yosl lies flies in his spare lime. He proclaims, "Fishing is where it's at!" Teachers Are People, Too Every day at AHS, teachers stood in front of their classes lecturing and teaching. We saw them day after day, doing the same thing, but has anyone ever wondered what these individuals did when they weren't in front of a class? Several teachers and faculty members shared with us a few of their hobbies. Whether it was latch hook or photography, each one of these hobbies was equally interesting. Though not all teachers and their hobbies could be pictured this year, it is only fair to remember that teachers, like the students, had special projects and hobbies to help them get away from it all. Some of us found out this year something not many students realize, "teachers are people, too!" Photography is one of Mr. Reno's many interests. Here he is showing how to set up the perfect picture. Star gazer Mrs. Nelson says, "It’s fun to use your powers of observation to notice pattern changes of stars," about her hobby of astronomy. Teachers' Hobbies 5A Look Inside Homecoming at Alliance High Once again, teamwork, determination and hard work prove to be successful for the AHS Bulldog's homecoming night as the Newcastle Doggies meet their defeat 28 to 17. Posing as king and queen, Chris Clark and Scott Abbott celebrate the defeat of the doggie by the AFS warrior (Vicki and Sherry ledlicka) during the Homecoming parade. Servants Karra Cushing and Dee Pohlman watch. The 'A' is set aflame as a tradition of Homecoming at AHS. Spirit shines through the crowd that looks on as they brave the wet weather which also seems to be a tradition. Terri Moss, Kerry Harms and Michelle Black, while awaiting their Roman feast, swap mythological stories on "Toga Day" during Spirit Week. 6 HomecomingAt a first glance, the Homecoming week at AHS may have seemed ordinary, but if one looked deeper, he ould have seen what truly made this week a unique event. Even though Homecoming is a long practiced tradition at AHS, there are things that make each year a different affair. New ways of showing school spirit were concocted. Fun styles were worn each day during spirit week. Tricycle races, marshmallow eating contests and a football jersey auction were a change of pace for AHS students. At the coronation, Kristen Rickman and Tim Schnell were crowned Homecoming Queen and King. The first attendants were Julie Hirter and Jeff Tomlin. Selected as second attendants were Polly Abbott and Kirt Piihl. At the Homecoming football game, the Bulldogs topped the Doggies from Newcastle, Wyoming, 28 to 14. Celebrating the victory, students moved to the music of KMOR at the Homecoming dance. An inside look showed what an exciting week this turned out to be. Homecoming queen and king Kristen Hickman and Tim Schnell show school pride. .“World Happenings Influence Alliance As 1983 state champions, the Alliance Spartan baseball team celebrates its victory. Summer 1983 is the first time this Alliance team, coached by Rick Renteria and Claire Conley, has ever won the class B state title. Cabbage Patch Craze Hits the U.S. As holiday seasons approached, Christmas shopping became a priority on everyone's list. This past year the soft sculptured Cabbage Patch dolls were number one on several Christmas lists. The dolls sold like wildfire. Every day, stores across America ordered hundreds upon hundreds of these dolls and every day most of the stores sold out their entire stock. The factories were open day and night manufacturing the dolls; the factory workers went into overtime, and still there were not enough for the demanding consumers. Fights broke out in stores because so many people were trying to buy what was left of the sought after dolls. What was it about these dolls that caused such trouble? Was it their cute smiles that attracted so much attention, or was it the fact that each little doll was an original with a birth certificate? Well, whatever the reason, these little dolls will definitely go down in history as being the only vegetable that every child loved. 8 Current EventsHigh Students' Daily Lives James Watt Resigns Secretary of Interior James Watt retired from his position in October of 1983. William Clark replaced him. Korean Jet Shot Down By Russians In September, a Korean jet was shot down by a Russian fighter plane and plunged into the Sea of Japan. Following this event, much controversy was aroused as to how the U.S. should react. After brief Russian explanation, the U.S. decided not to interfere. Cornhuskers Go To Orange Bowl The United States of America, Italy, and France sent peace-keeping forces to Lebanon where the Druse-Moslems and Christians were fighting each other. They were also fighting the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization), a group which was recently terrorizing the country. Current Events 9 American Troops Stationed in Lebanon Robby Robot entertains the crowd as one of the many acts in a show by Up With People in the summer of 1983. This group is made up of people from all over the world. (Times Herald photo) Ranked the number one team in the nation, the Nebraska Cornhuskers went on to play against Miami in the Orange Bowl in January. The Huskers were defeated by the Hurricanes, 30-31. Olympics in L.A. Countries gathered in Los Angeles, California, where the 1984 summer Olympics were held.School Spirit Soars at AHS If one was to take an inside look at AHS, one thing that would not go unnoticed was the overflowing amount of pride and spirit that seems to be present everywhere. Of course various clubs made it a point to express their school spirit, but the pride was traced deeper than that. The spirit was traced to each individual. Attending the games, music concerts, and plays proved that Alliance High students were proud of their school. WHAT WE BELIEVE. WE CAN J ACHIEVE Showing that true "blue" spirit, Mel Pebley and Tony Berry try hard to read their band music on "Punk Rock" day. Giving great inspiration, signs like these made by the cheerleaders really boost the enthusiasm of the team and their faithful supporters. During every pep rally, the cheerleaders present a spirit award for the class who yells the loudest. Here, the class of "86" is presented with their award. "Toddlers" day brings the child out in everyone. Kim Rask, refusing to lay Raggedy Andy down, tries to dial the phone. award kBefore each game, the cheerleaders decorate the athletes' lockers with signs. Braving fearful heights, Tami Ushio must have spirit to balance upon a ladder as she adds her finishing touches. S N 0 S This brightly colored sign, hanging over the stairs in Senior Hall, helps the Seniors win 1st place in the hall decoration contest during Homecoming spirit week. w r Seniors Jeanne Sterner and Rob Moyle really get into the spirit of decorating their hall for spirit week. It's always amazing how more streamers end up on the people than on the lockers. With a smile and a glow all their own, Gay Pederson and Jeanne Sterner help lead the crowd in some cheers to get them excited.

The band also marched in the Sidney Octoberfest Parade. The band, led by the majorettes (left), marched in the Chadron State College Homecoming Parade as a part of the Band Day festivities. Pointing the way toward victory, the flag girls (right) perform at half time during a home football game. 14 Marching BandBand Marches into an Eventful Year Altitude is an important part of a successful performance as shown by these band members. The Alliance High Marching Band was out on the field at 7:30 each morning last fall diligently preparing their routines. The band "strutted their stuff” at the home football games and at the Homecoming parade. They also competed with other bands at the Sidney Octoberfest and at the Chadron Band Day where they received a trophy for their hard work and dedication. Helping the band to move to the beat were Majorettes Lisa Davis, Nolene Roten, and Susan Turgeon. They, along with band director Dick Rischling, worked hard leading the band through their routines. "Practice makes perfect" proves to be true when the band wins a trophy at Chadron State College Band Day. The flag girls added creativity and color to both marching band and pep band later in the year. They boosted the spirits of spectators and band members alike with their enthusiasm. During basketball and wrestling season the band also moved inside. The band played at many of the games and several times were accompanied by performances by the majorettes or the flag girls, who received many compliments. All in all, the band had a very successful year and played an important part in keeping the Bulldog spirit alive.

With marching season over, the band settled down to more "symphonic" works. Mr. Dick Rischling, director, held chair auditions and those honored with first chairs were as follows: Rob Moyle, clarinet; Vesta Curtiss, flute; Lisa Davis, alto saxaphone; and Nancy Schnell, trumpet. Money-making projects included the annual magazine sales. This money went to the Music Parents to buy items needed by the music classes. Throughout the year, the band concentrated on perfecting notes and rhythm. They also added dynamics and accents to put feeling into their music. They showed off their practice and study at the Christmas and Spring Concerts, and the Fine Arts Festival and District Music Contest. This year's concert band gave Alliance High a chance to get an "inside look" at the world of music.

Accompanists Candace Gaswick and Vesta Curtiss play a vital role in the functioning of the choir. 18 Concert Choir Concert choir began the '83-'84 school year with several new faces, a new set of choir goals, and a new choir cabinet. Those students wanting to be in choir were required to take a listening test before becoming a member of the choir to check their ability to listen to other choir members and to blend in well. At the beginning of the year, the choir voted on their goals. They agreed that the production of better vocal quality by improved vocal skills was important, along with working together to better appreciate a variety of music. Throughout their concert performances, it was obvious that they had successfully carried these goals out. The Christmas concert was especially noted for the special effectnifer Kraay, Tami Ushio, Julie Grassmick, Laurie Beckhoff, Retta Jenkins, Marilyn Higgins, Lori West, Dee Panwitz, Audrey Gonzalez, Susan Stinnette, Kelly Kaufman, Wendy Miller, Janine Ballentine, Heather Brost; 4th Row: Toni Greggs, Nancy Hashman, Nita Navarro, Julie Hirter, Polly Abbott, Dawn Dunning, Pam Appleyard, Nancy Smith, Wendy Krause, Deanna Beckhoff, Shelly Nolette, Jeanne Sterner, Betsy Larkowski, Linda Pebley, Nancy Fowler, Celena Bolinger, Amy Green, Jereen Goode, and Kim Marchant. Showing a less serious side of choir, these toga-clad members prepare their float, portraying mythical times, to move into place among the other Homecoming floats. Receiving the most money votes, Amanda Heitz wins the choir's fall talent show with her vocal solo. made when the choir closed with "Pass It On ' forming a cross glowing with candles in the darkened auditorium. Director Mrs. Marcy Giles said that, because of the many favorable comments, this might become a new tradition at future Christmas concerts. The new cabinet, along with choir President Candace Gaswick, assisted Mrs. Giles in making important decisions and served as representatives for the choir. Although some might not have considered the choir extremely active, several choir members expressed the great choral satisfaction, confidence, and leadership abilities gained through class time and while performing. Amy and Eric Green, decked out in their "Sunday best,'' place second in the choir's fall talent show with their vocal duet. Concert Choir 19Focusing on Alliance High's Stage Band plays several jazz numbers at the talent show The Stage Band, besides their trip to Spearfish, performed at the Fall Talent Show, the band Christmas concert, the High Plains Concert at Chadron State College, and the District Music Contest. The band, under the direction of Dick Rischling, specialized in jazz, rock, and pop music for a change in mood after the larger concert band's traditional pieces. Stage band members consisted of Susan Turgeon, Tami Ushio, Ray Berry, Melody Pebley, Lisa Davis, Polly Abbott, Andrea Whipple, Chris Jesse, Monty Petrich, Vesta Curtiss, Ralph Gonzalez, Dion Renteria, Mike Schnell, Jim Graff, and Karl Knight. Swing Choir receives many requests to perform at various community functions and are also a popular attraction at concerts. The AHS Swing Choir, formerly known as Blue Persuasion, updated their look with the guys wearing black dress pants and vests with white shirts, and the girls in black dress pants and red blouses with black ties. They also kept their musical performances in tune with the times singing and dancing to songs by Alabama and other popular artists. The group, along with the stage band, sold crystalline ornaments to raise money for their trip to Spearfish, South Dakota, where they both participated in the Black Hills State College Music Contest. Swing choir members included Tina Wodke, Ron Batt, Vesta Curtiss, Tony Berry, Amanda Heitz, Jerry Shannon, Tami Ushio, Ralph Gonzalez, Rod Stark, Amy Green, Lisa Davis, Scott Abbott, Susan Stinnette, Eric Green, Polly Abbott, Ray Berry, Wendy Krause, Jeanne Sterner, Linda Pebley, and Jim Graff. 20 Swing Choir Stage BandSmall Performing Groups The majorette trio is composed of Head Majorette Lisa Davis, Junior Nolene Roten, and Sophomore Majorette Susan Turgeon. The Choralettes, a select freshmen girls' choir, were also very fashionably attired in gray corduroys and pink polo tops. The girls performed a variety of music at contests and throughout the community and often added choreography or bells for special effects. The '83-84 Choralettes were Lori Jones, Sheri Jedlicka, Sam Gonzalez, Lori Frederich, Joanna Howell, Dena Hashman, Sharon Spahnle, RaShelle Wodke, Laura Schnell, Carol Donahoo, Jeni Dunovsky, Crissy Roby, Kim Taylor, Jeanette Bilstein, Stacy Brass, Brenna Barner, Jodi Morrison, Michelle Kamerzell, Tina Bauer, Debbie Manuel, and Kelly Stark. The flag girls show off their "preppy-look". A large part of the majorettes' time was spent making up and practicing routines for contests, parades, and half-time shows at the football and basketball games. But the end result proved truly worthwhile, for the majorettes played an important role in leading the marching band and keeping spirits high at the games with high-stepping dance routines. The 10 member flag squad began working together soon after the girls were named in the spring and remained active throughout the year. During the summer they held car washes and garage sales to raise money for new outfits and camp at Hastings College. In the fall, they did routines at football games and marching contests where they received excellent comments. At basketball games they added more dancing to their half-time show delighting their audiences. Flag girls included Veronica Jesse, Michelle Black, Nancy Fowler, Vicki Clark, Rachel Schmer, Captain Linda Fairbanks, Terri Moss, Shellie Sutton, Jolene Brenner, and Co-Captain Katie Chouanard. The '83-'84 Choralettes prove to be a unique blend of select freshmen girls' voices. Majorettes Choralettes Flag Girls 21"Our Town" Opens the Eyes of Many THE PULITZER PRIZE PLAY “The first act shows a day in our town," stated the stage manager, as he greeted the audience. When the play first opened, the audience was taken inside the homes of the Webbs' and their neighbors, the Gibbs', during breakfast time. They were then carried throughout an entire day and had the chance to meet each member of the families and their friends. The second act dealt with love and marriage, when Emily Webb married George Gibbs. Right before the wedding, George and Emily had doubts and terrible fears about growing up. But their love was confirmed as George reassured Emily by claiming, “I love you, Emily, I need you." In the third act, the audience is led to the cemetery on the hill (four years have gone by) where many of the townspeople they had come to know so well had died and were patiently awaiting, not “judgment" but greater understanding. Into their midst came Emily, a little timid at first and very wishful to go back and relive her life again. But she learned painfully how impossible and futile it was to return. Her past could not be relived. Living people, occupied with petty occupations and small thoughts know little of true joy or happiness. lust as Emily's last line implied, “They don't understand, do they?" and Mrs. Gibbs' futile reply, "No, they don't understand." Heather Redmon portrays the stage manager, a friendly guy seen continually throughout the play as different characters and often found conversing with the audience.

Mrs. Webb (Mandi Schnell), Mrs. Soames (Lisa Davis), and Mrs. Gibbs (Linda Fairbanks), returning from choir, gaze at the moon. George and Emily express their love for each other by embracing after exchanging wedding vows. Filled with grief, George collapses at Emily's grave the night after her funeral while Emily feels the need to console him. Fall Play 23Music Parents, Speech Team Stress Music Parents was a group of interested parents of students involved in vocal and or instrumental music including grades 6-12. Their primary goal was to enrich students musically through financial support and donation of time. The group met each month under the leadership of President Pat Heitz, Vice-president Sherrie Curtiss, Secretary Leslie Rader, Treasurer Cheryl Harris, and News Reporter Zella Rathbun. The group's activities included helping to organize the magazine sales drive, working at the door and at the concession stand at concerts, sponsoring the short trips taken by the bands and choirs, and helping to organize the concert choir's taco feed. The group helped to provide money for music and for scholarships to summer music camps awarded to majorettes, flag girls, and other outstanding music students. They also sponsored the annual music banquet, besides providing the awards of letters and pins given out at that time to students who had earned them through a merit system. Although their activities usually kept them "behind the scenes", an inside look at Music Parents proved the importance of their efforts. At the February meeting, Senior Chris Jesse gives a presentation on his past summer's trip to Europe with the United States Collegiate Band. Those serving as Music Parents officers include Pat Heitz, president; Sherrie Curtiss, vice-president; Leslie Rader, secretary; Cheryl Harris, treasurer; and Zella Rathbun, news reporter (not pictured). 24 Music ParentsExpression of One's Self Speech team members include Lisa Davis, Linda Fairbanks, Heather Redmon, Rachel Schmer, Vicki Clark, Vicki Jedlicka, and Brian Smith. Linda Fairbanks and Katie Chouanard express their character's feelings through gestures and facial expressions. AHS experienced a whole new approach to both speech class and speech team with the addition of a new teacher and coach, Mrs. Fae Redding. Several members of the speech team attended a tournament at Morrill to listen in on the various events and to get ideas for their own performances. The different areas one could compete in included humorous prose, serious prose, oral interpretation of drama, informative speaking, original public address, and readers' theater. In each area the judges looked for hand gestures, facial expressions, tones of voice used, and other details that let the speakers or actors best express the feelings of the character of their writing. The team planned to participate in meets at Gering and Dalton, but due to several conflicts, were unable to go. However, four members, Vicki Clark, Linda Fairbanks, Katie Chouanard, and Vicki Jedlicka, prepared and practiced a readers' theater which they performed at community functions. Speech Team 25Levels of Art Offer Variety AHS held a handful of talented artists. Many of the art students released their creative abilities in art classes this year. Whether it was just a drawing or an intricate piece of pottery, these talented students' works were much appreciated among the other students of Alliance High. A glass case displayed the colorful art work in the hallway so people passing by could admire the work of the art students. There were four different levels of art offered. Art I was an introduction to the medias of art. Freshmen were taught the basics of drawing, water color, tempra, and some pottery. Art II was basically a review of Art I. Sophomores began working on three-dimensional drawings and did quite a bit of painting with acrylics. Art III was opened to all the medias of art. Juniors began a crash course on the human figure and began independent study. Art IV was a complete course on independent study. Seniors were to do four projects of their choice. This consisted of anything from painting to pottery. Above all, art was a super class for those creative young artists. Carefully combining colors, Mr. Mannlein shows Troy Nickens the technique for acquiring the right shade. Senior Jennifer Wasserburger takes time to carefully imprint an intricate design on her pottery. A combination wheel-thrown pot created by Senior Juli McFall is completed for her individual project. 26 ArtTo Talented, Young Artists Mike Moscrip works diligently on an ink drawing in Art III as Richard Vaughn looks on for some constructive pointers. Tina Wodke's portrayal of a unicorn shows the detailed work that can be done with colored pencils. Junior Vicki Jedlicka concentrates on her watercolor design. Art I student Dana Behm puts on a happy smile while she completes her watercolor.

Esther (Lisa Davis) refuses to shake hands with Fred (Paul Manuel). Rose (Linda Fairbanks) urges her on. 28 Spring PlayDuring "Meet Me In St. Louis" "This family is moving to New York just as fast as we can!" When Mr. Smith was transferred to New York, total chaos exploded in the Smith home. Immediately his four daughters began scheming a way to get the boss to change his mind and let them stay in St. Louis. One thing led to another, and Act II ended with Mr. Dodge, the boss, getting both his ankles bitten by the youngest daughters as part of their _plan. Desperately attempting to escape, the boss felt the cold splash of a water bomb dropped from an upstairs window. In the days that followed, depression set in. Mr. Smith had been fired and money became tighter. The daughters were really feeling guilty. "All we wanted was to stay here, Papa!" wailed Rose. But ill feeling soon ended as Mr. Smith got his job back and the family was able to stay in St. Louis, just in time for the World's Fair. The cast included Mr. Smith, David Koester; Mrs. Smith, Nancy Fowler; Lon, Don McDonald; Rose, Linda Fairbanks; Esther, Lisa Davis; Agnes, Vicki Clark; Tootie, Rachel Schmer; Grandpa, Brek Brixus; Katie, Katie Chouanard; Ida, Vicki Jedlicka; Fred Gregory, Paul Manuel; John Shepard, Jerry Shannon; Mr. Dodge, Scott Abbott; Duffy, Joey Shannon; Mrs. Waughop, Heather Redmon; and Director, Mr. Dan Sharkey. Tootie (Rachel Schmer) and Agnes (Vicki Clark) are a little mussed up after derailing a trolley. Everyone stares out the window at the brilliant fireworks. Director Dan Sharkey and Don McDonald set up the walls to the set of "Meet Me In St. Louis."

After a slow start because of inexperience, the 1983-84 Alliance Bulldogs' football team summoned up a lot of guts and determination to make a complete turnaround from being nothing to something. The Bulldogs pulled off an amazing comeback, coming from a 1-3 record to tally a 5-4 record and achieve their second winning season in a row. After being embarrassed by both Scottsbluff and Mitchell, the Bulldogs defeated a tough Kimball team to get the team started in their winning ways. In the following game the Bulldogs suffered a disappointing loss to Sidney and then went on to win four straight games, defeating Gordon, Newcastle, Gering, and McCook before losing to Chadron in the season finale. The success of the 1983 team cannot be measured by their record but by their effort and determination to hang in there during a long and competive season. Individually, the Bulldogs received many post-season honors. Tim Schnell, Kurt Lambert, Rusty Heckman, and Jeff Tomlin were selected to the All-Conference first team. Kenny Erickson, Paul Lauder, Denis Dunbar, and Todd Sampson were selected honorable mention All-Conference. Senior Kurt Lambert was voted by his teammates as MR. BULLDOG, which is the highest honor an Alliance football player can receive. Although they did not receive much recognition, the coaches, Skip Olds, Steve Nelson, and Val Jansante, deserved as much credit as the players.

Although they ended up with a 2-5 record, they had a very successful and valuable season in the eyes of the coaches, Steve Nelson and Val Jansante. What the team gained as far as confidence and game experience will prove to be very valuable to them down the road. The 1983 reserve players should be very hard workers for Coach Skip Olds during the 1984 season. The 1983 freshmen football team compiled a season record of 3-3, while playing a field of very good freshmen teams. This year's team under the direction of Coaches Mark Woodhead and Jim Hawk showed signs of excellence but also of inconsistency, which is typical on the freshmen level. Their hard hitting style of play and number of quality athletes should make this class very successful. Coaches Hawk and Woodhead were very pleased with their effort. 1 st Row: Derek Schwanebeck, Dan Carnine, Larry Chouanard, Eddie Burgess, Brad Adams, Brad Herman, Kory Piihl, Todd Koozer, Charlie Krantz, Brian Miller. 2nd row: Rusty West, John Christensen, Chris Stoddard, Frank Redmon, Tim Weston, Jim Marcoe, Dave Crawford, Jason Minnick, Andy Piper, Tim Thies. 3rd row: Tony Bartling, Bryan Scheuler, John Renteria, Wayne Schance, David Navarro, Troy Nickens, Mike Schnell, Eric Vaughn, Shane Dean, Dave Fedderson. 4th row: Head Coach Mark Woodhead, Coach Jim Hawk.

Frosh FootballWinning Seasons Bring Hope For Next Year The junior varsity, sophomore, and freshmen teams all had winning seasons this year. The experience gained by these squads will be one of the key factors in next year's volleyball program. The freshmen finished the season with a 6-2 record. They defeated the tough Scottsbluff Bearcats and finished first in the Chadron Frosh Tournament. Shirley Schlenker and Anna Baumgartener coached the freshmen girls to their successful finish. The sophomore team completed the season with a 3-2 record. Their coach was Joni Schlatz. Through the experience of playing, they gained knowledge and confidence that will aid in next year's team. Junior Brigit Boness spikes the ball to an aggressive Chadron opponent. For the past several years the junior varsity volleyball team has had successful seasons. The J.V. had an outstanding team record with 11 wins and 3 losses. The wins were over such teams as Scottsbluff, and they won the Class C Varsity Invitational in Hemingford. lami McFall had this to say about the team, "If we keep developing the basic skills of the game, I think we'U have an excellent chance to go to state in '84!" These outstanding players will make next year's varsity a great one. These three teams were quick moving and hard working. They did the job they were supposed to do. The junior varsity team was coached by Joni Schlatz.

J.V. Frosh Volleyball 37Teamwork, Ability and Skill "Teamwork—work done by a number of people; each doing a part but subordinating personal prominence to the efficiency of the whole." The Alliance High School Spikers displayed this during the course of the season. Teamwork and determination led the Spikers to an 11-3 record. They placed second in the Alliance Invitational. Senior Candace Gaswick and Junior Amy Stephens were leading hitters with 72 and 62, respectively. Both were named to the All-Conference volleyball team. Leading setters were Co-captain Liz Jones and Lori Bearden. They combined for 136 ace sets. The season was attacked with a positive attitude. Leadership and the ability to get along with teammates made the year a success. The state ranked team was coached by Sandra Pilfold.

The overall season was quite successful for the girls' golf team. "Although the team didn't qualify for state, which was held in Alliance, this year's group has improved from season to season," said Coach Wayne Brown. Many records were broken by the team and by individuals. The team broke scoring records at Gering, Gordon, and Chadron. Kay Wildy broke two all-time school records, one for nine holes and the other for eighteen holes. Her nine hole score of 45 broke the old record of 47 and the 18 hole record, a 97, was broken by a 94. Two players were named All-Conference players, Lisa Wegenast and Kay Wildy. The Linksters enjoyed a successful season and future seasons are expected to be promising.

In front: Jeff Hood, Thad Schafer, Robb Finegan, Brad Johnson, Brian Hinton and Brian Grier (not pictured). The 1983 cross country team enjoyed quite a successful season, gaining valuable experience as well as individual success. Despite being very young, the team returned a very experienced veteran in Brian Grier. A four time state qualifier, Grier captured the individual Western Conference and District titles. Ending a very successful career as a high school competitor, Brian finished second at the state meet in Kearney. Another key to the boys team was sophomore Robb Finegan. Rob was a solid and consistant competitor throughout the season, but unfortunately hurt an ankle two weeks before districts. Finegan will anchor the 1984 boys team with the help of four other underclassmen. Brad Johnson, Thad Schafer, Jeff Hood, and Brian Hinton will use the experience they gained this year for next year. A young crop of girls team members, including Nancy Black, Tammy Schnell, Heather Brost, and Jeanna Shaw, worked hard throughout the long season preparing themselves for next year's season. Cross Country 41Bulldog Cagers Produce The 1983-84 varsity boys' basketball team had a very successful season under first year coach Lannie Shelmadine. Finishing the year with a 13-7 record, the Bulldogs accomplished the first winning season in a decade. The Bulldogs had an exciting offensive attack as well as an intimidating defense. Throughout the season the team was led by 6'8'' center Jerrod Lawrence, who led the team in scoring and rebounding. Senior Russ Muller did a solid job inside for the team all year. Seniors Ken Erickson and Jeff Tomlin played well defensively and contributed leadership. A valuable crop of underclassmen played big roles in the teams successful season. Rusty Heckman, Todd Sampson, Dan Nelson, and Denis Dunbar were juniors who played regularly for the team. Heckman and Dunbar provided exciting and solid play from the guard position, while Sampson and Nelson made their mark on the boards as well as in the scoring column. Doug Wilkinson, Scott Hiatt, Jeff Mills, Dave Heckman, and Tyler Winkler played well on the junior varsity and played well on the varsity level also. This team will be long remembered for their efforts throughout the season and for helping to start a successful basketball program in Alliance.

Junior Scott Hiatt reaches for a two point lay-up during the junior varsity Alliance-Kimball game. This year's boys freshmen basketball team was coached by Mr. Roger Shellabarger. "This team of boys was the most coachable bunch of kids I have worked with in a long time," commented Shellabarger. "They worked very hard in practice and never gave up." The freshmen ended their season with a 4-9 record. The 1984 junior varsity team was coached by Mr. Mark Woodhead. The team started out strong, but as the season progressed, their unity pulled apart, and that contributed to their losses. In six of the games lost, they were defeated by only four points or less. "The juniors who played offered a lot of leadership, and the sophomores who played did a super job as well," commented Coach Woodhead. Even though the JV's ended with a 5-11 season, the team was much better than their record showed. Freshmen boys basketball team members are David Crawford, John Balderson, Pat Marcoe, Wayne Schance, Larry Chouanard, Coach Roger Shellabarger, Tony Hedrick, Jason Odell, Scott Foster, Dan Gerlich, and Brad Adams. 44 JV Frosh Boys' BasketballDevelop Skills for Varsity Action Freshmen basketball team members are Brenna Barner, Nancy Black, Sandy Bull, Patty Shaw, Keri Taylor, Jennifer Skeen, Sheralin Richmeier, Leisa Kollars, Brenda Littlehoop, Wendy Godwin, Coach George Varvel, Stacy Brass, Jody Morrison, LaDonna Varvel, Denise Marshall, Michelle Kamerzell, and Coach Miller. The frosh girls basketball team was coached by Sue Miller. The girls improved immensely in their individual skills. The post season tourney win against Kimball, 31-26, placed Alliance third in the Gering Frosh Girls' Tournament—making their final season record 3-10. Coach Pilfold and George Varvel gave much of their time to strengthen this program. The JV girls began their season with the help of Coach Terri Shoop. Practices were based on the basic skills of ball handling, defensive tenacity, and floor awareness. With experience and hard work, the girls improved as the season progressed. The team hoped for fast breaks, while defense was their strong point. The JV girls succeeded in totaling their record to 5-10. Freshman Leisa Kollars uses her shooting techniques to help out the team's scoring against the Bayard Tigers. With a tough defense to go against, junior varsity Sophomore Missy Skeen finds a chance to shoot for two. JV Frosh Girls' Basketball 45Girl Cagers Have a Great Season The 1984 varsity girls' basketball season was very successful. They set many goals and reached most of the ones they set. One of the goals they set was to have a winning season; they reached this goal by finishing the season with 12 wins and 8 losses. Another goal they set was to make it to state. Although they didn't make it to state, they took second place at district. As only 19 girls went out for the team, they didn't have much depth. However, what they didn't have in numbers, they made up for in quality. Amy Stephens dominated most of the final season statistics as she lead in the number of steals and assists. She had a free throw percentage of 68 percent, a field goal percentage of 43 percent, and scored a total of 517 points. Mary Nolan lead in the rebounding statistics in both offense and defense. Amy Stephens was named All-State Girls Basketball player. With a look of total concentration, Mary Nolan shoots the ball. The 1984 varsity girls' basketball team are Coach Val Jansante, Kelly Kosmicki, Kama Brammer, Mary Nolan, Brigit Boness, Shawn Smith, Amy Stephens, Assistant Coach Terri Shoop, Retta lenkins.

The teamwork and cooperation shown by each athlete was admired by all. Winning every dual, tournament, and conference, the grapplers took the District championship points ahead of second-place Gering. The hard work and the pain finally paid off when 11 out of 12 qualified for state. Filled with high hopes, they travelled to Lincoln, not yet fully aware of the excitement that was in store for them. Rated Number One in Class B, the qualifiers were predicted to walk away with the championship. After the first round, Alliance claimed the first place spot only to drop to fourth after a disappointing second and third rounds. However, the confident grapplers showed their determination by ending with a very respectable second place. AHS state placers were Jim Penny—3rd, Kirt Piihl—3rd, Tim Schnell—4th, Kory Piihl— 4th, Billy Alvarado—5th, and Randy Hansen—6th. Wrestling in the 98-pound class, Jim Penny controls his opponent in his state-qualifying form.

Surprising is one word that could be used to describe the 1984 Alliance High Boys' Track Team. This year's team, led by a strong senior class and some talented underclassmen, captured both the Western Conference and District track championships. The Bulldogs were also the co-champions of the Bayard Invitational in which twenty-seven teams participated. Seniors Brian Grier, Jeff Tomlin, Rick Ridenour, and Wes Lewallen led the team throughout the season while younger team members provided needed points. Six members of the team qualified for the state meet in Omaha. Brian Grier captured state titles in both the 1600 and 3200 meter runs. Other athletes to qualify included Rick Ridenour, Denis Dunbar, Wes Lewallen, Jeff Tomlin, and Robb Finegan. The freshmen also had a very successful season, showing signs of good things to come. Competing very well against area competition, the freshmen managed at least a second place showing in most of their meets, including a second place finish in the conference meet. Many of this year's freshmen also performed at the varsity level as well, scoring needed points in weak areas. 50 Boys' Track Suspended in mid air, Wes Lewallen soars into the long jump pit after an excellent jump during the Alliance Invitational.Conference and District Titles Soaring cleanly over the bar, Denis Dunbar releases his pole and falls into the pit.

The 1984 girls' track team, consisting of 27 cindermen, had another tough season. Although they started in the slow lane, tying three other teams with zero points at the Binfield Relays, they gradually built up speed to finish sixth at districts. Head Coach Nelson quoted, "The girls worked as hard as they could and improved more every week." The only team qualifier, Amy Stephens, qualified for the state meet in the 800 meter run. She placed second at the district meet and set a new girls track record by 0.6 seconds. Later at the state meet Stephens placed seventh. One other girl's track record, the 1600 meter medley, was broken late in the season. The foursome of Karen Gerlich, Brenna Barner, Michelle Rohrbouck, and Amy Stephens ran their unique event in 4:32.1.

"Wasn't that barbeque good yesterday?" These are just a few of the comments heard throughout the year. People often enjoyed the activities even though they didn't know who was behind them. The Alliance Booster Club sponsored such school related activities and projects. One of these was the Big Blue Barbeque. This second annual event started the football, volleyball, cross-country and golf seasons off on the right foot. The club also took on many projects. One of these was the purchasing of a VCR video recording machine to record sporting events. The building of new trophy cases was also among the club's endeavors. Finally, the Booster Club paid half the expenses for a microwave oven for use in the concession stand. Gaining more and more parental and community support, the Booster Club has become important to the Alliance City Schools. Their enthusiastic support in all areas has been appreciated by all AHS students. Dan Collins, Roger Shellabarger and Mark Woodhead discuss upcoming events at a regular Booster Club meeting.

On February 3, FHA combined with FFA, FBLA, and DECA to sponsor a semi-formal sweetheart dance. During the dance, Shawn Smith and Greg Schrader were crowned Senior Sweethearts. FHA officers included Dawn Dunbar, president; Wendy Pfeiffer, vice-president; Desi Dunbar, secretary; Sharon Dee, treasurer; and Wendy Newman, historian. AFS sponsor Mr. Jim Kuehn gives his full attention to a club discussion of money-making activities.

Linda Fairbanks crops a picture for one of her eight color pages covering student life and the special events of 1984 In 1984, as all years, the Annual Staff constructed another yearbook. The thirty-ninth yearbook in AHS history was another success as pictures were cropped, layouts were drawn, copies were written, pages were checked and deadlines were met. Funds were raised throughout the year to meet the cost of the expensive yearbook. Early in the year staff members sold ads to prospective businesses around Alliance. Later in November and December, it was off to selling books to the students and teachers. Late in October staff members attended the Nebraska High School Press Association Convention. There, Chris Rose, Vesta Jo Curtiss, Laura Dye, and Joy Margheim attended several workshops. Some workshops that were attended dealt with the design of the yearbook, the writing of the copy, and the selling of the ads. The Annual Staff had a busy year as they showed AHS students an inside look in the 1984 Bulldog. Lisa Wegenast draws her layout as she hurries to meet the first deadline on December 16. 62 AnnualShow AHS Students an Inside Look The SPUD staff top row L-R: Jody Sampson, Ralph Gonzalez, Nita Navarro, Jim Holdeman, Shelly Nollette, Marcy Edminster, and Rob Moyle. Bottom row: Jerene Goode, Joe Bowen, Russ Muller, Kelley Burns, Shawn Muller, Kim Kepler, Betsy Larkowski, and Heather Redmon. Joe Bowen, editor, and Mr. Trenkle, SPUD sponsor, tediously work on the first edition of the second semester. Ten SPUD editions were all part of the successful year for the staff of the 1983-84 school newspaper. For Joe Bowen, editor, and Mr. Trenkle, sponsor, it was a busy year checking articles and correcting pages before the pages went downtown to the Times-Herald presses. There, negatives were made and papers were printed. Funds for the printing came from advertisements and from the School Board allocation. Late in October, part of the staff went to Lincoln for the Nebraska High School Press Association Convention. While there, LeighAnn Goode and LeAnn Littlejohn, news editors, Marcy Edminster, student advisor, and Joe Bowen, editor, attended several workshops. Workshops that were attended covered headlines, advertisements, copy and design. The design of the SPUD started with current events on the front page, small informative articles in the middle pages, and recent sports on the back page. Through the 1983-84 school year the SPUD staff stayed on top of the news and constantly informed AHS students of current as well as upcoming events and sports. Th© photograph staff for the SPUD and Annual was greatly appreciated throughout the 1983-84 school year. Members included top row: Katie Chouanard, Stephanie Sutton, and David Koester. Bottom row: Dee Dee Pohlman and Michele Black. Not pictured: Ron Kollars, Jill Moravek, and LeighAnn Goode. SPUD 63Cheerleaders and Spirit Club Work Together This year many changes were made in the cheerleading program. The squads were split by sports instead of freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity. Gay Pedersen, Crissy Harger, Jeanne Sterner, Rhonda Purviance, Joy Margheim, and Kim Marchant cheered for the football and girls' basketball teams. The wrestling squad included Amy Green, Gayle Koozer, Jill Moravek, Carrie Marx, and Audrey Gonzalez. Chosen for the volleyball and boys' basketball squad were Nancy Hashman, Julie Hirter, Lisa Pierce, Leigh Ann Goode, Pam Caventer, and Kim Tritle. The cheerleaders also made locker decorations and signs for the golf, cross country, wrestling, football, basketball, and track athletes. Along with squad changes, a change in sponsors took place also, as Mrs. Mary Schadwinkel took charge. This year a class period was given to the cheerleaders. During this time, cheers were practiced, pep rallies were planned, and various other tasks were completed. Officers included President Julie Hirter, Vice President Joy Margheim, and Secretary-Treasurer Lisa Pierce. A sense of class unity was one of the main objectives at pep rallies as class competition chants were held. Spreading school spirit and enthusiasm was accomplished this year by the cheerleaders. Amy Green shows her enthusiasm as she fires up the senior class in a yelling competition at a pep rally. The boy's basketball cheerleaders form a pyramid during a pep rally as part of their cheerleading routine. The 1984 wrestling cheerleaders are Amy Green, Audrey Gonzalez, lill Moravek, Carrie Marx, and Gayle Koozer. 64 CheerleadersThe Alliance Bulldog Masco! works with the cheerleaders to excite the crowd at athletic events. The 1984 volleyball and boys' basketball cheerleaders are Leigh Ann Goode, Nancy Hashman, Pam Caventer, Julie Hirter, Lisa Pierce, and Kim Tritle. The 1984 football and girls' basketball cheerleaders are Gay Pedersen, Jeanne Sterner, Crissy Harger, Kim Marchant, Joy Margheim, and Rhonda Purviance. Approximately 30 high school girls signed up to create a support group for the Alliance High School athletic program. Under the leadership of Kelly Kosmicki, chairman, the Spirit Club purchased blue T-shirts and white sweatshirt vests to use on days of competition. Plans for the group included working out a card section and attending as many games per week as possible. Working with the cheerleaders, these young ladies worked to offer visible and loud approval of the efforts of the Alliance High School athletes. Hopefully in the future more young ladies will participate in this very supportive club and help to promote support and spirit for the Alliance athletic program. The sponsor of these enthusiastic girls was Mrs. Mary Schadwinkel. Spirit Club members are Joey Shannon, Kim Rathbun, Deanna Beckhoff, Darcy Sutton, Jeri Bacon, Wendy Pfeiffer, Sarah Sherlock, Amy Boots, Keri Taylor, Jeanna Shaw. Spirit Club 65A Year of Changes for FBLA "It's great! It's a lot of fun!" One wonders, "What is fun? What is so great that people are excited about it?" The answer: FBLA! Future Business Leaders of America was more enthusiastic this year than in previous years. Members sold stuffed animals, sun catchers, and Christmas candy grams, as well as other miscellaneous items for new money-making projects. They undertook a membership drive which included showing the movie, "High Road to China," to encourage students to join. A major change in the organization was also brought about. In order to join in the past, it was required that one be enrolled in a business course, but not this year. As Mrs. Joni Schlatz, sponsor, said, "FBLA is for business oriented people, not just for people in business." Besides all this, members did the tallying for Homecoming candidates and were in charge of the coronation. Those who attended the most meetings, earned the most points, and more importantly, showed an active interest in the club, were able to attend state convention in April. faUoucano UTURE USINESS EADERS MERICA Under the direction of sponsors, Mrs. Joni Schlatz and Mrs. Cynthia Schwartz, and with the help of the officers, FBLA is kept running smoothly. Officers include Shawn Smith, vice president; Liz Jones, secretary; Nancy Hashman, reporter; Jackie Chouanard, president; and Linda Pebley, treasurer. Not pictured is Heather Redmon, parliamentarian. The most important part of any club is its members. FBLA's members include: back row—Vicki Jedlicka, Lori West, Vicki Mandelberg, Shawn Smith, Linda Pebley, and Katie Chouanard; front row—Jackie Chouanard, Liz Jones, Nancy Hashman, Elissa Marshall, and Sarah Sherlock. Members not pictured are Heather Redmon, Frank Redmon, and Matt Petersen. 66 FBLADECA—There's More Than Meets the Eye Sure, one knew about it, but did one know the purpose of DECA? Did one really know what went on behind the scenes? DECA's (Distributive Education Clubs of America) main purpose was to help its members develop leadership skills and competence in the business or marketing area. In order to be a member, one must have been a junior or senior and enrolled in Marketing I or II. Members sold 1984 mural calendars, posters of different sizes, and other items as well for moneymaking projects. The money made helped members to attend several competitions in March. The competitions had to do with certain marketing areas. For example if one was interested in being a grocery clerk, one took a series of tests in food marketing and related fields. DECA was involved in many activities throughout the school year. They conducted an informative survey concerning school facilities, sponsored the "Moonlight Madness" with the Chamber of Commerce in October, and also sponsored "DECA Week" here at AHS. This included talking to sophomores and the downtown merchants about DECA. Mrs. Pat Jones, sponsor, had this to say about the club, "DECA was the club in AHS that worked most closely with the business people outside of the school." Paul Hoffman and Casey Lulow have a long job ahead of them, selling all those Bulldog hats (above). The members of DECA lead an active life Members include Back row—Pam Apple-yard, Felipe Sanchez, Tammy Golden, Paul Hoffman, Casey Lulow; middle row—Kathy Bain-ter, Angie Kerns, RaDona Zacher, Rhonda Daniels, Becky Ditsch; front row — Tammy Schnell, and Joe Bowen (left). DECA 67FFA, Art Clubs' Projects Benefit Art Club members are Pam Caventer, Susan Edgerton, Vicki Jedlicka, Ernie Aguallo, Ron Batt, Ray Berry, Richard Vaughn, Paul Manuel, Mike Moscrip, Advisor Mr. Larry Mannlein, Jennifer Wasserburger, and Jackie Chouanard. The Art Club started the year off slowly, but as the school year progressed, the members had accomplished a great year. The club consisted of fourteen members all engaged in various money making projects. Each member was obligated to submit a drawing of the design for the club T-shirts. The projects that the group produced were few, but the work was of the best quality. One of the projects was to paint two signs for the Case Tractor Company. Another was the making of hand-built mugs available to all students of the entire school. With so much going on all of the time, the group set time aside to visit area exhibits. The group spent a day in Scottsbluff at the Western Nebraska Art Exhibit in the fall. When spring was well under way, the club ventured to Denver, Colorado, to visit various art exhibits in the area for two short days. The Art Club hoped to leave a strong remembrance for the future clubs of the years to come, to have a strong leader to fall on. Art Club officers are President Jennifer Wasserburger, Vice President Jackie Chouanard, Sponsor Mr. Larry Mannlein, and Treasurer Ray Berry. Art Club 68Community, School, Members Winners of the FFA livestock judging contest are Jamie Harris, Angie Fritzler, Randy Rogers and Jayne Nepper. The proud members of the FFA Chapter are Greg Schrader, Joni Taylor, Bob Bush, Wendy Krause, LeAnn Littlejohn, Bill Wills, Kim Kepler, Phil Pryor, Mandi Schnell, Carl West, Roger Bedient, Ray Krause, Brian Smith, Matt Bauer, Neil Schmidt, Jane Nepper, Jamie Harris, Kim Rask, Cathy Carr, Troy Hill, Steve Dobrovolny, Danny Brenner, Kelley Burns, Barry Nye, Dwayne Rose, Kevin Seidler, Ken Adamson, Stephanie Sutton, Doug Daugherty, Lora Romick, Sharon Davis, Mark Wolvington, Bruce Nepper, Wendy Godwin and Gina Gardner. FFA officers are Secretary Joni Taylor, Sponsor Mr. Dave Johnson, Parliamentarian Greg Schrader, President Bill Wills, Reporter Wendy Krause, Sentinel Bob Bush, Treasurer Kim Kepler and Vice President LeAnn Littlejohn. FFA began the year on the right foot by taking on many projects. The main activities included judging at local and area contests. Early in the year the club voted to sell fruits and cheese around the community; other fund raiser was the annual chili feed slave sale at the high school. Both proved to be a huge success. The money earned enabled six members to attend the National Convention in Kansas City, Missouri, during November. The year closed on good terms as Alliance was the sight of the District Livestock Judging, Vocational and Agricultural Contests on February 29. Events of the day included judging of livestock, dairy products and food cultures, and competing in other areas, such as welding, mechanics, and agriculture. By the year's end, one could tell from the number of completed projects that FFA had a most productive and successful year. FFA 69STUCO Has a Productive Year Polly Abbott conducts business at a weekly Student Council meeting. Although they were in debt at the end of the 1982-83 school year, many fund-raisers throughout the summer soon brought STUCO out of the red. Led by President Polly Abbott, the various members organized many activities throughout the school year. The annual New Students' Dinner was held at the beginning of the school year for the purpose of acquainting new students with the school and some of their new classmates. In October, STUCO sponsored a Mystery Dance. Everyone who attended was supposed to wear green for a sense of unity. A king and queen, Miss Pat Way and Mr. Val Jansante, were chosen from among the high school teachers. Before Christmas a food drive was organized to help refill the community food pantry. During the week-long class competition, a total of 1,026 pounds of food was collected. The sophomores won the contest by donating 336 pounds of assorted foodstuffs. As said by STUCO President Polly Abbott, “It's been a fantastic, incredible year." STUCO members include Paul Lauder, Amy Green, Wendy Krause, Kristin Rickman, Scott Abbott, Susan Edgerton, Carla Henderson, Ralph Gonzalez Amy Stephens, Nancy Schnell, Missy Skeen, Kelly Yost, Joey Forney, Susan Stinnette, Jon Moyle, Tracy Overstreet, Jennifer Skeen, Joey Shannon and Sam Gonzalez.

Thespian troupe 3146 felt a sharp decline in membership since many members graduated last year. With much hard work, a group of new members were initiated in February, raising the size of the troupe considerably. Above, sponsor Mrs. Fae Redding smiles for the camera. Below, Katie Chouanard, Linda Fairbanks, Vicki Clark, and Vicki Jedlicka practice their Oral Interpretation of Drama, which they perform for various groups. During the year they worked industriously on the fall play, "Our Town," but, unfortunately, they were not able to put on a spring play. Several Thespians and parents attended the Thespian Convention held in Kearney, February third and fourth. There they participated in workshops, saw performances by other schools, and met college students and teachers. The object of the convention was to encourage high school students to continue in theatrical work in their college. The rest of the year was spent on various fund-raising activities to boost their treasury. The money was saved for next year's activities. Thespian sponsor Mrs. Fae Redding said, "It's a wild and crazy bunch—really a good group of kids, and they are really serious about theater." Thespians 71There was a time and place for everything During the many hours spent at school, students found that their time was occupied by such things as history, English, math and science. Some students took to their studies whole-heartedly, and they could always be found with a book in their hands. Then there were the others who arrived at school twenty minutes ahead of schedule to cram for a test or complete the physics assignment that was due first hour. Requirements for graduation were added and the number of classes a student could choose from increased. The classes one took were designed to prepare the student for college or for a career after high school. In general, students felt that schooling was important and that they were receiving a quality education. Candace Gaswick said this about an education, "Education is a very highly prized ticket to a life of personal fullfillment, financial, security and great happiness. Therefore, iT should always be a top priority to all students." 72 Academics Division Academics Division 73Administration, Office and Guidance Let Their Light Shine The administration, office and guidance staffs opened the doors to let their light shine through. Each staff turned the best knob to make the school year better. The administration, which includes the school board and Community Ed, worked effectively to meet the problems that occurred during the year. One major problem was the limited classroom space. They also granted permission for various club trips and tours along with working out the school budget. The Community Ed had a successful year also as classes were offered for almost every facet of learning from basic computers to sewing, from photography to welding. The people of Alliance were more knowledgeable due to the fine efforts of Community Ed. The office and guidance staffs also worked hard to bring the best possible service. The office kept close attendance records and answered calls. The guidance staff, with the addition of Mr. Moyle, helped with class changes and college decisions. With these people working together, this year passed smoothly. As Mr. Stephens said when asked what he thought of these people, "The administration and staff worked effectively to get the job done. This is very difficult in these times of differing opinions and financial unrest." Ms. Lori Nagaki lakes time from her busy schedule io give a cheery smile.

Guidance 75Staff Plays Major Role in School Life Librarian Aide Mrs. Glenda Peterson helps Junior Lesli Hume check out a magazine lor a week Many students seemed to disregard that the staff of Alliance High played an important role in their high school life, but had it not been for them, the school just wouldn't have been the same. The cooks did their job with a little added touch of each one's personality, while at the same time the janitors kept the maintenance in good order. The library came under the new rule of Mr. Tom Ross. With the help of Mrs. Glenda Peterson and Mr. Richard McCall, the media specialist, the library maintained continuous assistance to the students and faculty. A large selection of references for both students and teachers were kept, and an orderly study area was available for students' use. The staffs' contributions to Alliance High made going to school more pleasant for the students. Tom Ross Glenda Peterson Richard McCall v- ; . 4-t The dedicated cooks are Earline Beckhoff, Susan Jensen, Linda Phillips, Helen Wagner, Maxine Culton, Sandra Waldron, Nancy Smith, Elsa Smith, and Joyce Lawrence.

Physical education and weight training were highly encouraged classes to take. P.E. was taught to the large freshmen class, giving them the opportunity to learn various skills in different activities. Weight training was offered to all students interested in keeping or getting in shape. With the right skill, students could perform their workouts safely and eliminate the possibility of any serious injury. Sandra Pilfold and Pat Cullen conducted the physical education classes, while Skip Olds taught weight training. P.E. Weight Training 77Ed. Classes Broaden Student's Horizon Many students found that the monotony of the regular school day could be eased by adding a few electives to their schedule; one of which, driver's education, proved to be a fun yet a very educational class. The class included not only time in the classroom, learning about various laws and regulations, and the dangers of drugs and alcohol, but also actual time behind the wheel, learning proper driving first hand. The driver's education teacher was Mr. Val Jansante. As the importance of the computer increased, the interests in a computer programming career also increased. This resulted in the addition of a BASIC computer class. It was a class for both students planning a computer career and students only interested in learning more about computers. This class, along with Freshman Comp, and U.S. History were part of the Community Education Program. The teachers were Mrs. Chris Rusk, Mrs. Eunice Petersen and Miss Ellen Christensen. The year was full of fun and excitement for the students in Special Education. The typical day consisted of learning activities designed to prepare the students for adult life. One of the most rewarding experiences for the students was the spring Special Olympics Contest held in Alliance. It included many events such as the 30 meter and the 50 meter dashes, the 800 meter run and the mile run. It also consisted of such field events as the frisbee and the softball throw, the standing long jump and the running long jump. The Special Education teachers were Mrs. Janet Bandel, Mrs. Penny Hoover and Mrs. Nancy Lusk. The Special Ed Director was Mr. Clayton Illian. All these classes added to the success of the 1983-84 school year. Angie Kochiras and Gay Pedersen concentrate on building one of the many computer programs required for the semester.

Listening tentatively to items needing to be studied for the next test are Mr. Polyakov's German II students. Fae Redding Lila Fiebig Ivan Polyakov Pat York finds that body language is very helpful in getting his message across in speech class. This year the speech department experienced a new change as Mrs. Redding became the director. Even though a required class, speech proved to be beneficial as well as fun. Students learned to give informative, persuasive, and demonstrative speeches as well as an oration. These speeches started at three-four minutes, increasing to ten-twelve minutes in length. Many overcame their fear of standing in front of a group while informing their audience. Spanish I and II were taught by Mrs. Fiebig, and German II by Mr. Polyakov. These classes enabled students to express themselves in another popular language. Much grammar was involved during the learning process of these languages. These three classes helped to ease the communication barriers that are at one time or another encountered by all. 80 Speech LanguagesProvide Opportunities For Expression Concert choir listens carefully to their director Mrs. Giles about needed information for their upcoming performance. Brass and woodwinds practice Christmas music for the annual X-mas concert, striving to hit every note right. Senior Jackie Chouanard works very carefully and tediously to perfect her sculpture in Art IV. The fine arts department consisted of band, choir, and art. The AHS Band was under the direction of Mr. Rischling. The band performed at half-time during home games, put on several concerts, and participated in numerous competitions. These activities kept the band very busy. Mrs. Giles headed the vocal department, which included choralettes for freshmen, concert choir, and swing choir. They, too, performed at various concerts and prepared for competitions. They were kept busy as they learned many new pieces of music throughout the year. Mr. Mannlein taught the art classes. There were four different levels of this class. These proved to be very productive if started during one's freshman year, as much could be accomplished by progressing through the classes, one after the other. Students were able to express themselves and their feelings through their work in all of these classes. Fine Arts 81Vocational Classes Prove To Be Sophomore Randy Hansen carefully observes his project while sanding and adding the finishing touches. Kent Meyer practices good typing techniques such as accuracy and concentration in his Typing I class. Vocational classes gave students the opportunity to select different classes which would later benefit them in life. Vocational classes helped people in all grades decide what occupation they might want to have. Classes like accounting, typing, and shorthand might be perfect for the business person. Others might want to work with special talents such as drafting, welding, or woodworking. Such other vocational classes included agriculture, house wiring, gas engines, auto tech, mechanics, electricity, general shop, home economics, adult living, and interior design. All of these classes gave students examples of their own career or job; anything from married life to constructing one's own building were offered through elective vocational courses. As one can see, there were a wide variety of different classes to choose from. Everyone seemed to be happy and to be having fun, as well as keeping busy all year long. Not long from now, many students will be ready to make it on their own.

Vocational 83Cute Sayings Add Spice To Social Studies; "In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." This was just one of the "cute" sayings that people said so history wasn't quite so boring. Students were required to take two years of history to graduate, and many students enjoyed cracking jokes to help them remember the history of their country. Students had a wide variety of history courses to choose from. Miss Ellen Christensen provided her students with interesting facts about the ancient times and the facts on WWI II with classes Rise of Nations and Ancient and Medieval History. Mr. Bill Furman gave his students in Economics, Sociology, and Current Issues general ideas about the economy and the social and political scenes around them. American History and Modern Politics, taught by Mr. Phil Schweitzer, showed students about the history of America from the 1700's to the recent happenings in the news. History may not be a favorite among the students of AHS, but one can learn many interesting facts of their country that may become useful in the future. Junior Gay Pedersen takes important notes that will be helpful on the next history test. Informing students about the Louisiana Purchase, Mr. Schweitzer expects his students to listen attentively. Freshmen students in Miss Christensen's World Geography class work studiously on an assignment covering the lifestyles of Norwegian people. Ellen Christensen Phil Schweitzer 84 Social StudiesJournalism Adds Variety to Students' Future With an upcoming deadline, Editor Joe Bowen picks a satisfying spot for an article in the school newspaper. Joy Margheim, the business manager for the annual staff, finds filing annual purchase stubs a confusing task. Has one ever wondered how to become involved in journalism classes? Many students at AHS yearned to become active in the making of the yearbook and the school newspaper, not only for the fun but for the learning abilities a student receives in the long task. Set up especially for students who enjoy writing, journalism and annual classes spent their year writing stories, doing layouts, and rushing to meet deadlines. In order to become part of the Spud and annual staff, a student had to fill out an application and receive a recommendation from their English teacher. The annual staff, sponsored by Miss Pat Way, worked tediously all year to meet their deadlines and to put together the 1983-84 Bulldog yearbook. The journalism staff, sponsored by Mr. Terry Trenkle, spent many days preparing the school newspaper, "The Spud," with interesting facts about school related activities and articles about the community around them. Eight students from the annual and journalism classes attended journalism convention in Lincoln. Those attending were Chris Rose, Vesta Curtiss, Laura Dye, Joy Margheim, Joe Bowen, Marcy Edminster, LeAnn Littlejohn, and Leigh Ann Goode. By attending the convention, these students learned new ideas about putting together their yearbook and newspaper. Those attending journalism convention are Chris Rose, LeAnn Littlejohn, Joe Bowen, Laura Dye, and Joy Margheim. Journalism Annual 85National Consensus Initiates More 3, 6, 9, 18, 39, . . . What number comes next in the sequence? This may seem close to impossible, but it was just one of the many things learned by math students. In many cases students took math classes to fill the quota of points required for graduation. Many took courses to expand their knowledge for future careers. Basic classes that were available to all students were Business Math, Introductory Algebra I, Algebra I, and Geometry. These courses taught the math basics. More advanced courses included Introductory Algebra II, Algebra II, Contemporary Math, and Math Analysis. These classes broadened students' basic knowledge and helped to prepare for college. This variety of math classes, instructed by Mr. Hawk, Mr. Kuehn, Mr. Brown, and Mrs. Schwartz, was augmented from previous years to accommodate recommendations of a national consensus.

Bacteria grows at a rate of 100 million per hour. To reach the closest star takes many lifetimes. Science students learned these and many other facts. Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Anatomy? This was the question for most of the 449 science students in the 1983-84 school year as they had a wide variety of classes to choose from. Some students prepared for a career in science by taking two science classes. This year the freshmen class was given a choice of Earth Science teachers. Because of the larger class, another teacher, Mr. Stout, was added along with Mrs. Nelson. Twenty-one percent of the 449 science students chose to take Chemistry. In this class, Mr. Marchant taught the students about atomic structures and formulas and about organic and inorganic chemistry. The majority of students took a course in Biology. Mr. Yost and Mr. Stout shared the responsibility of teaching the students about plant and animal life. The two remaining classes were Anatomy Physiology and Physics. Mr. Yost and Mr. Marchant taught these two more advanced classes and prepared the students who wished to pursue a science-oriented career. The students and teachers worked effectively to make the year profitable for everyone. As Mrs. Nelson said, "This will make a good foundation for next year." Larry Yost Teresa Nelson Bill Stout One of Mr. Marchant's Modern Chemistry classes checks an assignment. There were 42 students in Modern Chemistry. Science 87English—It's Not As Bad As One Thinks Mr. Trenkle is thinking, “Why me?", as one of his students give a rather unsuitable answer to one of his discussion questions. Steve Nelson Patricia Way What does one think of when one hears the word, "English?" "Boring," right? Well, did one ever stop to think of how interesting English could be? For instance, without English how would one be able to read and write all those notes to and from one's friends? Let's face it, it just wouldn't be possible to open up and communicate as well without English. Besides teaching the basic grammar, Mr. Steve Nelson (regular) and Miss Pat Way (project) guided freshmen in the art of comprehending literature. They read such books as Animal Farm by George Orwell, The Odyssey by Homer, and Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. The freshmen also got a chance to broaden their vocabulary with weekly quizzes. Miss Pat Way, Mr. Terry Trenkle (regular), and Mrs. Eunice Petersen (project) started the sophomores in trying to understand the meaning behind the stories they read. Some of the literature studied was Willa Cather's My Antonia, Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, and A Separate Peace by John Knowles. Time was spent working on projects and writing compositions as well as the ever present grammar. As seniors Sandi Hamilton, lennifer Wasserburger, and Kristen Rickman take notes in Mrs. Yost's regular English course, the rest ot the class is busily listening to what she has to say. Eunice Petersen Terry Trenkle Bernard Becker ■. 1 ®n ► fv; A Sherry Yost Mary Schadwinkel 88 EnglishKeeping the juniors on track were Mr. Terry Trenkle (regular) and Mr. Bernard Becker (project). Juniors studied vocabulary words, grammar, and learned to decipher the author's meaning behind the actions and thoughts of the characters in the stories they read, such as The Scarlet Letter, by Hawthorne, Walden, by Thoreau, and Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn. Mrs. Sherry Yost (regular) and Mrs. Eunice Petersen (project) kept the seniors busy throughout their last year of high school English. They studied all kinds of American poetry, worked on compositions and completed a research paper. Besides this, they read literature such as Macbeth by Shakespeare, and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Reading was a new class offered at AHS this year. It was a program provided through Nebraska Chapter I to help students improve comprehension and language arts skills. Taught by Mrs. Mary Schadwinkel, students worked under contract and in small groups to raise their academic levels. During this year, this course was non-credit. Some students will always think of English as a boring subject, but with the help of the teachers, others may change their minds and enjoy this required subject. Freshmen Sheri Jedlicka and John Balderson give varying expressions of shock as Miss Way gives tomorrow's assignment. Dwayne Bull, Vicki Brehm, and Dan Hemple keep hard at work in Miss Way's sophomore class, above.

Honors Convocation 91Classes What could be said about the classes of '87, '86, '85, and '84? Each day these students were together, tackling the problems they faced. Freshmen left their marks upon AHS as they took their first steps toward graduation. Sophomores began thinking about prom. Several money-makers were performed so there could be enough funds for the annual affair. By January, "prom, prom, prom" was the uppermost, talked about subject among juniors. Seniors had it easy with ordering caps, gowns, announcements and graduation being the prominent problems. It was a good year. The classes intermingled yet stood behind one another when competing during class competitions at a pep rally or selling cookies at a bake sale. The unity of a class was also shown by the selling, buying and wearing of class T-shirts, which was very popular. The impressions were left as fresh «men could say "one down, three to go" and as seniors said "good-bye." The people were what made AHS operate, and being supportive of one's class activities proved to be beneficial to the smooth functioning of the ’ high school. 92 Classes DivisionClasses Division 93High School Days Become Reality for Class of '87 Every year the new freshmen class goes through the same problems of getting into the rhythm of high school. This year was no exception as the class of 1987 came face to face with the futuristic image of going to AHS, that before had only been a dream. The dream became reality from the first day. Classroom locations were found. New teachers and friends were introduced, and the routine became natural. They were accepted with open Brad Adams Kenny Adamson John Aguallo Casey Allen Shari Bakkehaug John Balderson arms by the rest of the student body and were officially established as AHS students. As the year drew to a close, many freshmen began to look forward to next year with a bright outlook for their future.

The class officers were Deena Contonis, president; Susan Stinnette, vice president; Missy Skeen, secretary; and Nancy Schnell, treasurer. These officers helped to come up with ideas for making money for next year's prom. Holding sock hops and selling jewelry helped to accomplish that task. With the help and guidance of their officers, the class of '86 made it through the year. They also anticipated the time when they would be seniors, and no longer underclassmen. With half of their high school years already gone, the sophomore class made the most of their time, and memories were made that would last a lifetime.

They had some money-making projects which included having sock hops, selling class T-shirts, selling balloons, and helping sell Adventureland Video memberships. These all helped a lot in raising money for a great prom. The class officers for the juniors were President Jami McFall, Vice President Nolene Roten, Secretary Susan Edgerton, and Treasurer Carrie Marx. These people, along with sponsors Mr. Bernard Becker and Mrs. Teresa Nelson, helped to make the junior year very productive and prosperous.

The theme, "Sweet Dreams," was carried out by hanging stars, cotton clouds, and a canopy. Streamers in various shades of blue were strung from a center ring around the entire gym. A fog machine was used to create a more "dreamlike" effect. The royalty was crowned by Vesta Jo Curtiss. Second Attendants were Kristin Rickman and Rob Moyle. First Attendants were Shawn Smith and Kenny Erickson. King and Queen were Jeff Tomlin and Candace Gaswick. The dance was considered a success by junior class sponsor, Mr. Becker. "Theme, decoration, and student enthusiasm and decorum combined for a genuinely outstanding prom for the class of '85." Junior class vice president, Nolene Roten, momentarily forgets her fear of heights as she hangs a wire from the ceiling during the decoration for prom. "InASense", previously named "Blue Earth," sings the night away with popular songs. The band from Rapid City consists of five members. In preparation for prom, luniors Kama Brammer and Alonna Voss hang yet another streamer. 112 PromFreshmen servers, Patty Shaw and Chrissy Roby, dressed in their pj's, do their duties assigned during prom. Cough! Gasp! Wheeze! As others dance among stars and puffy clouds. Freshman Tracy Overstreet holds her breath while operating the fog machine. Veronica lesse and Monty Petrich dance the night away, or at least "before the clock strikes 12." The 1984 Prom royalty include Second Attendants Kenny Erickson and Shawn Smith, Queen Candace Gaswick, King Jeff Tomlin, and First Attendants Kristen Rickman and Rob Moyle. Prom 113One Hundred Seniors Bid Their For the senior class of 1984, the last year was worth waiting for. The smallest senior class in years, which consisted of 100 students, was kept alive with senioritis when spring approached. The seniors faced all the important responsibilities of being a pre-graduate by filling out scholarship applications, ordering caps and gowns, and making a decision whether to attend college or continue working. Choosing class song, flower, colors, and motto was another important responsibility. "Take on the World" by Judas Priest was chosen for class song as well as lavender and gray for class color and flower. "To live your life in your own special way, to reach the goals you have set for yourself, to be the you that you want to be . . . That is Success!" was their motto. The class was led by the officers: Marcy Edminster, president; Jeanne Sterner, vice-president; Gayle Koozer, secretary; Rob Moyle, treasurer; and LeAnn Littlejohn and Lisa Davis, historians. With the left over money from the previous year's prom, the class purchased mugs with the imprint of the bulldog and "Class of 84". The class of 1984 was finally leaving the security of the common high school life, but they all looked forward to living in the "real world". ’’He ain't heavy, he's my . . . buddy," thinks Ken Erickson, as Rob Moyle takes a breather during class.

Ron Kollars and Paul Lauder stand patiently after receiving Presidential scholastic awards. 128 GraduationClass of '84 Seniors Graduate Chris Rose, one of the three class speakers, makes herself presentable for hundreds of people. The other two speakers are Kay Wildy and Candace Gaswick. Growing together, and drifting apart, Always an ending, and now a new start. We've struggled this far, for many of years, Graduation soon brings, heartaches and tears. Going to colleges, leaving our homes, Experiencing life, out on our own. Soon we'll be going, our own separate ways, For now and forever, our memories will stay. Reminiscing through yearbooks, and talking of years, Reunions will bring, memories and tears. Our class now . . . and forever more, Will always be remembered as, The Class of'84.

Closing 165"An Inside Look" Reveals Changing Times Marcy Edminster, Kenny Erickson, Amy Stephens, Deena Contonis, Sam Gonzalez, Kory Piihl, Pat York, and Doug Wilkinson are crowned Jesters of the Court for their sparkling wit and practical jokes throughout the year. The year was 1984! Was it unique? That was a question asked by many students at AHS. When school began in late August, students thought of it as the same old thing. As it turned out, it wasn't. First semester set the stage. New friendships were formed and students invented new activities to do. AHS musicians reorganized a stage band after its disapperance from the scene. There were athletics. They were different, also. The teams had to overcome obstacles to become the best that they could be. As first semester became second, a routine had been established. Doing the same thing every day, right? Wrong. There was something new happening all the time. Winter brought unbearable weather and saw the wrestlers taking second at state. There was change everywhere. As 1984 drew to a close, the individuality showed, and after taking "An Inside Look,'' one could see the differences from all of the previous years gone by. Striving for the perfect drive, Vesta Curtiss concentrates on the proper stance. Showing their appreciation in an obscure manner, "Our Town" cast members take turns autographing the face of their director, Mrs. Redding. 166 ClosingInstalled during the middle of the school year, the wheelchair lift is used by eighth-grader, Doug Keane. Conforming to the computer age, Typing II classes, instructed by Mrs. Schlatz, learn to operate computers while perfecting typing skills. Dedicating their time to activities outside school, Curt Hain, Gary Mittan, and Ray Berry raise money to aid in the local Muscular Dystrophy drive. Closing 167168 Closing
