FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDE
Another exchange student from Denmark, pictured above with his host family Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Strasser, Soren Rcfsgaard, finds America and Denmark similar and dissimilar.
One of the many differences between the two countries is that in Denmark, the drinking age is 18, and drinking and driving penalties arc greater than in the U.S. If a person is caught drinking and driving in Denmark, he would lose his license for two years, could go to jail, and also would receive a large fine. As for the socializing among teenagers in Denmark, they usually go to discos or a friend's house. If they are drinking they either stay the night where they are or find a ride with someone else sober.
Thomas Larsen's home is Wilborg,
Denmark, which is about four hours from the German border. Wilborg is an urban area of about 40,000 people.
In Denmark, Thomas attends a school called Folkeskolen. “In Denmark, instead of having a weekly test or quiz, we have a test maybe once a month," Thomas stated. When asked what he likes about America, Thomas jokingly replied, “My lunch break!"
In Denmark their lunch period lasts only 20 minutes.
His interests include music, ice hockey, soccer and skiing. He stated,
"I like downhill skiing most!" Aside Thomas’ arrival in St. Ixniis. Barb and Ed Rice, (Host Family), Jeannie Dy Ning, from skiing, Thomas enjoys playing (visiting from Manila, Philippines) Chris Sichra, (Rice’s Neighbor), and Thomas, soccer. He has played for six years and is presently playing for AHS varsity team.
Thomas intends to train as a fighter pilot in the Air Force upon his return to Denmark. He revealed, “I came here to learn more about the American culture than what I’ve heard and to see what some of America’s major cities are like."
Thomas is currently staying with the Ed Rice family of Godfrey. Fleming Rosenbeck, also from Denmark, stayed with the Rice family last year.

TS EXPERIENCE LIFE AT AHS
“Soul Music, Chocolate chip cookies and Union Station.” These are a few parts of U.S. culture that have impressed AHS Exchange Student Gunter Perl from Munich, Germany.
Gunter remarked, “People are more open in America than in Germany.” He has found it easy to make friends, and he especially enjoys the less formal relationships between student and teacher in the U.S. In addition, Gunter enjoys changing rooms and buildings between classes, for in his school in Germany, students stay in one room all day. He is taking five courses this year; his favorite is Architectural Drafting at the J. B. Johnson Center.
In Gunter's school in Germany, the day ended at 1 p.m., which gave him time to enjoy windsurfing and racquetball. He played basketball in Germany also.
While in America, Gunter has visited St. Louis and Union Station. He also took a date to the Homecoming Dance. On the whole, Gunter feels his stay in America has been enjoyable so far.
Gunter is staying with the Andrew Batchelor family during his visit.
Soren and Cunler in the AHS “pit before school
Another difference between the countries, Soren has found, is the family situation. In the U.S., the family is more caring and interested in where the members are and what they are doing. Soren remembers going out in Denmark and not coming home for two days. He has also noticed that many families in the U.S. give gifts for no real apparent reason. In Denmark they do not.
Soren is very talented in gymnastics and is involved in Mid-America Jets on Belle Street. After graduating from AHS, he is planning on getting a job in Denmark with his reference of living and graduating from high school in America. The Danish people think highly of their students who graduate from American schools ... They feel that they are better educated and more mature.
Soren feels that it isn't the people, it’s the cultures that make Denmark and the U.S. different.

Maria catching up on current events -
Where is the teacher? She's late!"
These might be the words of Maria Pena, 17, of Bogota, Colombia. At Maria’s school in Colombia, the students don't change classes, the teachers do. Maria, a senior, would put on her school uniform (which all public and private schools have) and sit in the same class all day.
Although this may seem boring to the rest of us. Maria has other things to look forward to at the end of the day. Clubs, parties and dances are what Maria misses.
What AHS student enjoys windsurfing, listens to the Eurythmics and hails from Goteborg, Sweden? The answer is Fabian Fjaelling, the exchange student residing with Mr. Ron Kelly, a teacher at West Middle School. Fabian enjoys these hobbies and many more.
Fabian, 17 years old, lives on the southwest coast of Sweden. He attends the gymnasium, or upper school, in Kungalf, about five miles from his home. He attends school from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and studies 11 subjects. In his school, classes last anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours. Fabian admits that the clothes worn at AHS are similar to those worn at school in Sweden. After school, Fabian and his friends either study or just socialize together.
In his spare time, Fabian enjoys sports. He likes volleyball and is a member of the AHS football team. He also enjoys listening to Billy Joel and Imperiet, a Swedish music group. Fabian is also learning how to play the piano in his free time.
Overall, Fabian is enjoying his year at AHS immensely and keeping busy with football, schoolwork, school functions and making new friends.
NO! THIS ISN'T DISNEYLAND! It’s the Kelly basement health spa!
The Kelly famil) collies
When Maria came to America it was not what she expected. She adds, “Money and a car are a need to have fun; in Colombia there is always a party or a dance.”
Maria is prepared for the winter weather, although she has never seen snow. It is always cold in the Colombian suburb where she lives.
Maria leaves a big family back home including two brothers and one sister ... She is staying with the Kenny Lenhardt family, a graduate of Alton High. When Maria returns to Colombia in June, she is planning to attend college.
Amaya Tellechea-Eroreca is from Salamn-ca, Spain, a town of around 200,000. Her American family is the Miguel Raya family of Alton. She often refers to Racheal and Tony Raya as her sister and brother. In Spain, she lives with her parents and two brothers in a big flat on the new side of Salamnca.
Amaya’s school is very different from AHS in that Amaya stays in the same room with the same students while the teachers move to each classroom. Everyone in school has his own partner whom he works with. Her school has no sports teams so when she came to her first football game, she said, “It was very different because football in my country is soccer.”
Amaya hasn’t graduated from high school in her country yet. After she graduates here she will go back to Spain and attend college. She wants to attend Salamnca University and study classical languages.
Amaya likes to listen to music, and her favorite group is Depeche Mode. Her favorite book is Lord of the Rings, and she enjoys going to the movie theater. She went sightseeing in St. Louis and especially liked the Arch.
Amaya’s parents are very supportive of her coming to America. She was in the hospital while applying for the AFS program and her father filled out the papers while she answered the questions. Soon after she was accepted. Amaya misses her family very much and says her greatest problem is learning English, but she’s trying very hard to overcome that.

New Head Football Coach directs
The 1986 Redbird varsity football team is under the direction of a new head coach: Mr. Collis James. Coach James has been teaching in the Alton School System for 14 years, 12 of which he was assistant football coach for AHS.
The Redbirds were forced to forfeit their first four games, but got a real taste of winning at the Homecoming Game, October 10, when the Birds defeated Cahokia 21-13.

The first victory of the season
The Varsity football team provided spectators with some good times at the Homecoming Game. Running backs Tony Herd and Tony Cross exploded for the big plays as the Birds delighted a Homecoming crowd with victory, giving the first year head coach Collis James his initial win. “I’m probably more happy about the victory than the kids are.” James said.

Cheerleader spends the summer in stitches
Alton High School cheerleader Sue Kercher had a very busy summer. She made new uniforms for the 20 varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders and the Redbird mascot. If purchased from a uniform company, the new outfits would have cost about $100 each, according to the cheerleading coach Connie Allen. Sue said she was able to make each one for about $7 — the cost of the material — by donating her time and talents. The uniforms were first modeled at the Homecoming game.

A new face is seen on the marching field as Mr. David Drill-inger, the former director of the Marching Showcase in Cen-tralia, takes command of the “ 100.”
The Marching 100 is an excellent organization which requires a great deal of work. The students sacrifice their time and effort to achieve their potential. As a result, they endure and enjoy a two week summer camp, a button sales campaign, and long Thursday night rehearsals. This year the band participated in several band competitions and hosted the second annual “Echoes Off The River.” In addition, marching 100 students broke in a new band director. WELCOME TO ALTON MR. DRILLINGER!

Powder Puff Game 12On November 8th Junior and Senior girls gathered at West Public Stadium to battle it out. Spirits were high, and the competition was fierce.
The game started at 1:00 and from there on out it was a hard hitting, head-to-head battle in a ton of mud! The two teams fought long and hard until finally, late in the fourth quarter, the Seniors’ Kim Perry scored a touchdown to give the Seniors a 6-0 lead. The Juniors made a valiant effort to recover, but it was too late. Seniors slid by with the victory.
JUNIORS TOUGH, BUT SENIORS TOUGHER!Both teams put in hours of physical torture!
The Junior team, led by their five sadistic coaches, consisted of over fifty girls! The Senior girls were also led by five wild and crazy coaches but had a roster of only 13 girls. Each team also had a truly beautiful and talented squad of cheerleaders to root them on!

VHt v ' “TAKE A SEAT” PLAN RECEIV
The Plan to renovate the Alton High School Auditorium began over a year ago. Former Superintendent of Schools Mary Blanche Jungers, and the renovation committee: Mrs. Shirley Mondy (Chair-person) Mr. Edmond Young, Mr. Thom Croxton, Mr. Cliff Davenport, Mrs. Joan Sheppard. Mr. Ronald Enloe, Mrs. Evie Tejada. Penny Nelson, Mrs. Gail Burjes. Mrs. Elviria Werkhaven. Dr. Richard Yoder, Mr. R. J. Tolliver, Mrs. Lin Miller, Mr. Tom Thompson, Mr. Eugene Frizzo, Mrs. Joyce Robinson, Mr. Ernie Irvin, Dr. Mary Blanche Jungers and Mr. Michael J. Beaber, approached the Board of Education with a plan. The board
agreed to match $30,000 of the projected $60,000 cost. A fund raising campaign was launched. Contributions came in from over 500 citizens and businesses. In addition, help came from school and community organizations such as Aid Association For Lutherans, Future Business Leaders Of America. Thespians, The Redbird Word. Junior Service League of Greater Alton, Pepsi Cola Bottling Company, Alton Band and Orchestra Builders. Alton Childrens’ Theater and the January-June class of 1945. The $30,000 goal was not only obtained but topped with a collection total of over $45,000. The original seats, installed in 1929 were removed
and completely refurbished by a factory specializing in theater renovation. (The same company renovated the Fox Theater in St. Louis). This method was not as costly as the purchase of new scats, and after considering the quality of the old seats, a sample was completed by the Caroll Seating Company and sent to the committee for approval. The floor was recovered and the seats were installed in September. Additional funds collected were used to restore the sagging curtain and to carpet the aisle areas of the floor. The balcony seats, which were not included in the original contract, were also redone.ES A STANDING OVATION
Take a Seat 183184 Take a SeatTo celebrate the renovation of the auditorium the Speech and Theater Department, with the help of the Music Departments, presented a variety show on January 23, and 24 at 8 p.m.
The first performance on the 23rd was by invitation only for those who contributed to the renovation efforts. Alton High students performed scenes from several plays, including The Importance of Being Ernest, the very first play performed in the Alton High Auditorium. Also featured in the two performances were the Alton High Singsations, the Show Choir, Jazz Band, Dance Chorus, band and orchestra ensembles, and the Allen Singers, representing community groups. The main attraction was a performance by AHS graduates who had played lead roles in past musicals. Alumni performers were: Diane Hand, Toni McCauley Bowman, Debbie Berry Maneke, Mark Bacus. Bob Nagy, Linda Walkington Ferguson, Kame Fischer, Tim Weeks, Kevin Frankes and Susie Paris Delano.

The National Honor Society is a group of students whose membership is based upon scholarship, service, character and leadership. Also, one must maintain a 3.75 grade point average and be recommended by a panel of faculty members. Because of the high standards, only 15 new members were inducted last spring. In an effort to increase club membership, the requirements are being lowered. NHS takes part in the planning and running of several events throughout the year, including the Ned Nilson Scholarship Brunch, ushering at the summer musicals, and helping out at the Beverly Farms Special Olympics.

Golden Pages for the Golden Ages
Senior citizens will find their spring shopping much easier this year, thanks to Alton High School's chapter of Future Business Leaders of America. The “Golden Pages for the Golden Ages," a book featuring businesses which offer special discounts to seniors was originally the idea of Donna Petro, support services program manager for Madison County Senior Citizen Services. Petro's idea was expanded by the FBLA advisory council and was developed by the students members of the FBLA. “This will be a great service to people on a fixed income" says Mrs. Petro. “For many senior citizens faced with increasing medical costs, this guide will save them time and money by being a fingertip reference for discounts available to them."
Students also encourage businesses they contact which don't have senior citizen discounts to consider giving them. Their business will appear free in the shoppers’ guide and will not only be good advertisement for their products and services but will, hopefully, prove an incentive for them to offer special discounts.

Did you ever cut your own hair and make an uncorrectable mistake? How about taking apart a bicycle to fix a broken sprocket and forgetting how to put it back together? For most, the list goes on and on. Technical and Vocational programs teach students the details and important do’s and don’ts which offer them career foundations.
Cosmetology classes offer practical laboratory experiences in patron services, salon management and state board preparation.
Vocational Printing students learn to set up, adjust and operate all types of printing presses and equipment. Students practice printing safety, photography, platemaking, offset press work, stock cutting and bindery.
Auto Body Mechanics is another career
opportunity skill. The vocational program offered trains students in a highly skilled and specialized craft. The auto body worker repairs damage to the automobile body caused by accidents and rust or corrosion. Included are training in sheet metal structures and aesthetics, with a broad general knowledge of welding, hand tools and hand-held power tools.
A unique course in Aviation Mechanics is offered at J. B. Students learn to maintain aircraft in general aviation (private), and airline or military mechanics. Aircraft mechanics are licensed by the Federal Aviation Agency and all aircraft in the
United States must be certified safe for flight by an aircraft engine and air frame mechanic before they may fly. Aviation is an area of the transportation field that is really growing today.
VOCATIONAL INDUSTRIAL CLUBS OF AMERICA (VICA) is a growing organization at the J. B. Johnson Career Center. VICA is a national organization of students engaged in trade, industrial, technical and health occupations in high schools, vocational-technical schools, area vocational centers, junior and community colleges.
Nationally, 270,000 students are members of VICA in 12,000 chapters. The Alton chapter has 56 members from the vocational areas of Cosmetology, Aviation, Mechanics, Foods, Nursing, Office Education, Vocational Accounting and Electronics.
VICA advisors include E. Dean Browning, Principal Robert Middleton, counselor Margaret Stroube and teacher Georgia Unthank. VICA provides local chapters with a speakers bureau, consultant services, alumni programs, collegiate services, fund-raising projects and other activities.

One of the greatest needs in the country today is housing for a growing population. The building of homes for people requires highly skilled building trades workers. Carpenters are a very large percentage of these workers, and the need for them is great. In building trades classes students learn to read blueprints and to cut and fit materials together according to the architect’s design. Each student gains experience in concrete work, framing, plumbing, electrical, roofing, and all the other skills involved in completing a finished home.

That’s what these students see in their future
Distributive occupations distribute goods and services from industry to consumers. Students who participate in Distributive Education develop a wide variety of skills in salesmanship, merchandise management, accounting, advertising display, wholesaling and cash register operation. Serious students who “do their homework” and develop these areas of expertise find employment in the job market due to the large population density in our metropolitan area.

The successful Vocational Printing student is a highly competent mechanic and artist all rolled into one exacting perfectionist. The student learns to incorporate several technical skills to create a superior graphic product. The field of printing incorporates various areas such as photography, platemaking, offset presswork, hot type, hand and machine composition, layout, bindery and thermography. Professional printers’ work is interesting and pleasant, and employment opportunity is good. The pay is excellent! Students in the Vocational classes at JB prepare for an apprenticeship of 4 to 7 years to be completed after graduation.REPAIRING AND SERVICING AUTOMOBILES
There has been a tendency over the last few years for mechanics to specialize in one or more of the automobile systems. Some of these areas of specialization are: electrical,
tune-up, transmissions, chassis and front alignment, wheel balancing, and air conditioning. The auto mechanics program presented at JB is broad in coverage to allow students
to practice skills in various areas and develop individual preferences for later specialization.

The Alton High Student Senate held
its annual Red Cross blood drive.
On October 16 in the Annex Gym, students, teachers and members of the community donated 142 pints of blood, surpassing the previously set goal of 125 pints. The donation center was organized to resemble the bases on a baseball field. Donors started on “First Base" having their temperature taken. On “Second Base" a blood test was completed, and participants were flagged on to “Third." When the donation was complete a HOME RUN was scored and donors were treated to cookies and juice. The Student Senate would like to thank all those who participated.

THE ST. LOUIS SYMPHONY
Master Musicians from the St. Louis Symphony Share their musical expertise with students
“NERVOUS? YOU BETTER BEUEVE I’M NERVOUS!” said Jennifer Sherwood before the rehearsal began.
“THIS IS QUITE AN EXPERIENCE!” Jon Lair told the Tatler reporter as students and instruments were moved, assembled and tuned.
WHAT WAS ALL THE EXCITEMENT ABOUT?
Masters from one of the country’s best symphony orchestras sat side by side with AHS music students and shared their knowledge and artistry with their high school age counterparts while performing a concert, delighting students and guests of the Alton Music Department.
The rehearsal and concert took place in the Jesse L. Cannon Memorial Cultural Center ... better known to some as the Lovejoy Gymnasium. Tsung Yeh, the Ex-xon Arts conductor of the St. Louis Symphony and conductor of the St. Louis
Youth Symphony commanded an outstanding performance.
For many guests it was the first opportunity to hear the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Lovejoy school students applauded during breaks between movements of the first selection, allowing their inexperience as symphony going regulars to creep out for all to see. Many students tapped their feet, keeping time to the familiar themes they recognized and thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
This fantastic happening was coordinated by AHS Orchestra Director Allen Walters, and the Alton Band and Orchestra Builders. Approximately 60 symphony musicians made the trip across the river to delight both students and guests with their performance. After rehearsal with the professionals playing side by side with high school students, the musicians took a 30 minute break and chatted freely
with their protegees. As the “by invitation only” guests filtered into the cultural center, the teams of performers picked up their instruments and performed a 45 minute concert.
The professionals offered the young musicians advice on everything from how to get the best sound to how to grease an instrument.
Instructor Allen Walters hopes to make the St. Louis Symphony visit a biannual affair. “Plans are in the works to bring the symphony to Alton every two years so each Alton High Orchestra student will have the same opportunity these students have experienced," Walters said.
For most Alton Music students, it was “quite a happening "... for some it was an experience that will happen only once in a life time.

Symphonic OrchestraFEBRUARY: BLACK HISTORY
28 days filled with a wide focus of exceptional activities
Black History Month is a special event which focuses on the rich and inspiring heritage of black people. It is held throughout the month of February, helping everyone broaden their scope of Black Americans and their accomplishments to the building of this nation. Only those who have made a notable contribution to society are acknowledged. This event is district-wide, in which everyone works collectively to help make Black History Month a success. Student Council is the “spearhead” of this event, along with the help of Pat McGee King, Vemetta Caffey, Robert Jefferson, Rebecca Sims, and Erskine Ryan. This year there were daily quizzes, a display at Alton Square, various community leadership seminars in Alton High's library, daily tributes to outstanding Black Americans in various fields, a special performance by the SIU dance troop, and a final student assembly. Well said by Vemetta Caffey, “Students, not just black students, were able to expand their perceptions and expectations of the real lives and work of Black Americans.”
On February 3, 1987, the “Catherine Dunham Dance Company" from SIUE, performed for the students in the auditorium. They provided lively singing, dancing, and music. This was only the beginning of many performances held throughout Black History Month.Retiring King, Mark Davey and Queen, Penny Felton hand down their crowns.

Staff members brainstrormed various divider page concepts for this year's book and Finally decided to use open lockers displayed with “TYPICAL STUDENT STUFF” tumbling out of the open locker door. Staff members Kim Frank, Bruce Cromwell and Shannon Vlackelden clean up an old set of steel lockers salvaged from a storage shed at J. B. by the Tatler Sponsor, Mrs. Franz, and maintenance men George Depper, Gerald Randol and Don McDowell. The finished lockers ... scrubbed, stripped, painted and embellished with “TYPICAL STUDENTS STUFF” for the Senior divider of the earbook, are shown (right). The lockers were restocked with “NEW TYPICAL STUDENT STUFF” for each section the divider pages introduced.
