Mike Velloff, Lori Kanturek, and Lance Johnson's reaction to the new bell system.
This year our school changed the tone of the bell. Rumors were said that the reason for doing so was the students ability to imitate the bell. Students feel we should go back to the old bell.
Pitball, a growing fad?
Pitball originated with the class of 85. The founders of this great sport are unknown to us, but they are greatly appreciated. Pitball is usually played in the morning, during lunch, or during 8th hour.
In conclusion, Pitball is growing more and more every year, and it's changing more as well.

Bilsbury and Herter playingMany of the students at Alton High spend most of their spare time in the pit. They gather in the morning and during their lunch hours to talk to friends and finish their last minute homework.
Although students complain about bad parking and dents in their doors; and teachers complain that the noise is distracting, the pit is a very popular feature at Alton High.
Students wait in car before school.
Parking in the pit can only be described as, interesting. If you can get here before 7:30, you're guaranteed a space, but after that — good luck! People who double park top the list of pet peeves, followed by people who park three cars in two places. The problem only gets worse, when you return from lunch to find your parking spot filled by someone. Circling the pit, trying to avoid the mighty wrath of the pit cops, you're usually forced to wait til the next lunch hour exits and you can become the someone who took a parking space.

'The pit's a great place just to hang out, but some of the rules could be relaxed a bit."
An example of pit parking.

It's that time of year again, the one parents hate and underclassmen look forward to. Senioritis has struck at Alton High and most Seniors have it, if only a mild case. Senioritis has four different stages, and is usually limited to Seniors, but it can also break down the immunity of others.
In the beginning of the school year, Seniors calmly accept the fact that they must attend school. They live for weekends and parties. This stage usually lasts until Christmas vacation. After returning from Christmas vacation, the disease becomes chronic. The year seems everlasting, and most Seniors become bored with their everyday routine.
When Spring break nears, Seniors forget the whole idea of paying attention, homework, and studying. They would rather dream about Spring break and parties. After Spring break, the disease is now terminal. In the last week, many Seniors have literally lost control and have exploded!!!!! The only cure for the dreaded disease is graduation and then it is passed on to the next class.

Students are busy preparing for the last home football game, decorating for the dance, deciding who to nominate for King and Queen, and flirting their hearts out with the hope of getting a last minute date for the dance. To add to the fun, the Activities Board organizes special daily activities for each day of the week. This year the activities were: Monday, Sucker day; Tuesday, College sweatshirt day; Wednesday, Class color day; Thursday, Hawaiian day; Friday, Red and gray day.

The pep assembly was held on Friday, Oct. 2, in the auditorium. Cheerleaders opened the assembly by performing a dance to "Control", which was choreographed by Meg Davey, captain of the squad. The football players and Homecoming candidates were introduced and the Marching 100 played the school song. At the close of the assembly the football players also performed. The assembly helped bring a large crowd to the game.

The pit was alive with the sound of horns and enthusiastic Redbird fans. Students decorated their cars with balloons, streamers, and signs and met in the pit before the game. The cars led a parade to the stadium, where, with the help of touchdowns by Sherman Skinner and Wilbur Kaiser, the Redbirds won 14-9.

It was Monday, October 12,1987. And the senior Powder Puff squad found themselves at Alton Public School Stadium to play football against the juniors. This was a game they knew next to nothing about, save what basics the inspiring senior coaches could teach in a short couple of weeks. The "basics" included plays with memorable names such as Dennis, Cosby, David, Leon, and L.L. The first half passed quickly, and at halftime the two squads were scoreless. The second half seemed to go even faster. The seniors racked up points as the clock ticked down. When the slaughter was all over, the score stood at SENIORS, 28-Juniors, 0. As the juniors crawled home, in shame, with the sore muscles that come from rough defeat, the seniors went on to celebrations with the thrill of victory that makes hours of hard work all worthwhile.
Alton High's very first Masquerade Dance was held on Saturday October 24. The D.J.'s were Kyle Kennedy and "Dem Boys." Music blared through the thick smoke and spooky costumes while people danced.
I got you now!
Help! I'm bleeding!
Yeah, we're bad!

59The 2nd Annual Easter Seals Trike Race
On May 16, 1987, Alton High students joined forces to raise money for the Easte Seals Society. French Club, Latin Club, German Club, Student Senate, Student Activities Board, National Honor Society, and JETS competed, along with one team not affiliated with a club. The race earned $300.00 dollars for this fund. The winning teams were JETS (1st), NHS (2nd), and Student Senate (3rd). Chairperson Betsy Schudel was excited about the turnout and looked forward to making the trike race an annual event.
"Believe It or Not I Care” Week at Alton High School took place November 16-20 this year. Among the week's activities were lunchtime competitions, Teacher Appreciation Day, School Spirit Day, and BIONIC Balloon Grams. The highlight of the week was the assembly sponsored by Student Council. Council members worked together to form an all school committee called PRIDE — Please Rid Inconsiderate Destruction Of Our Environment. The committee members worked with Principal Tom Thompson and concerned area businessman Mr. Roland DeGregorio, owner of the Alton Pasta House Company, to promote student awareness in this successful anti-litter campaign.

"Success is never ending, failure is never final."
On February 10, Alton High School was fortunate to have as a speaker Yvetter H. Young. She is completing her seventh term in office as a State Representative. She gave a motivating speech about success and failure throughout the Eons of human history. Her speech demonstrated some of the many successes of human civilization such as freedom, democracy, and in her opinion, public schooling.
She first decided to run for office when she was attempting to build houses for the poor in East St. Louis, her hometown. The Nixon Administration put a freeze on building and she could not continue her project, so she ran for office to change this. She said that she has been moderately successful in this, however the situation has not been completely remedied, but it is improving. The school was truly enriched by her speech.

One highlight of the season was the defeat of cross-town rival Marquette which always fields a determined squad. Craig Sun upset Marquette's number one player in straight sets, 7-6 and 6-2, to lead the Redbirds to victory in a strong home-town showing.
Sun, Grabner, and Phillips all earned the right to compete in the state tournament at Arlington Heights. Doubles team Phillips and Grabner won two matches at State to top off an outstanding season.

Greg Ruyle making a great effort.
The season started out on a high note, but the Redbirds quickly plummeted back to earth after a heart breaking 4th game. After a successful beginning, they lost 8-1 against Belleville East and finally ended the year with a 4-14-1 record.
Along with the low points, there were some shattering upsets. The Redbirds beat Ed-wardsville for the first time in three years; a major accomplishment, said Coach Marc Cap-pel. Team managers were Linda Garner and Kathy Elzy.
Coach Cappel stated that he used two freshmen as starting pitchers, and was extremely pleased with the results. The major problems were in defense and consistent hitting.
Score-wise, it was not exactly a great year for the sophomores. But experience was gained and . . . next year is a whole new ball game.

The Redbirds' golfers finished their successful 1987 season with a 16-10 record. Led by senior Brad Phillips, and juniors Chad Randall and Brad Tiemann, the Redbirds qualified as a team for sectionals for the first time ip 11 years. Randall led the team with one of the lowest averages in the St. Louis area.
The Redbirds made a good showing at the Granite City Scramble, earning medals in all three flights, and finishing fourth overall.
After losing a tough three stroke match to Belleville West and finishing third in conference match play, the Redbirds placed 2nd in the conference tournament, and finished 2nd in the Southwest Conference overall.
At the area regional the Redbirds shot a combined 330 to finish fourth, and qualified for the sectional on a very windy day at Belk Park Golf Course. Randall shot a S over par 77 to finish 3rd out of 72 golfers and qualified individually for the sectional, the only Redbird to do so.
At the sectional the Redbirds did not qualify for state, and Randall missed going to state individually by one stroke with an 83.
Overall, the Redbirds had a very successful year, and they will be getting two fine players back in Randall and Tiemann. Look for great things from these two next year.
The girls team included Carrie Carpenter, Louise Bowles, Julie Hughey, and Tracy Thomas. Julie Hughey qualified for the sectional tournament.

For the 1987 cross country season, the Alton High Redbirds were both successful and promising. With a varsity squad consisting of three seniors, four juniors, and a freshman, the harriers were able to qualify for the Sectional meet. After a slow start, the Redbirds became very competitive by placing well in large meets. They also won several dual meets on the course at Gordon F. Moore Park. Near the end of the season, Alton took third place at the Belleville East Invitational. At the Regional meet in Edwardsville, the Redbirds finished fourth, qualifying them for Sectionals. The season ended with a fifteenth place finish at the Sectional meet by the team, with no individual runners qualifying for the State meet. However, juniors Andrew Bilsbury, Maurice Manley, and Waide Neal made the All Southwestern Conference team. Other varsity team members were Chris Hansen, Kosta Lekkas, and Ola Palmblad; junior Mike Velloff; and freshman Chris Scarborough. Sophomore Todd Salzman suffered a knee injury in the middle of the season. Special thanks to Coach

BUMP, SET, SPIKE!
In the early part of August, the 1987-1988 girl's volleyball team began conditioning for the new season. They did not have much experience, so they had to start early in August to learn the fundamentals of the game. They were not allowed to handle the ball, but they still conditioned for 2 to 3 hours Monday-Friday.
Unfortunately, after all the conditioning, they had a los-
ing season with a 1 and 19 record. Ms. Pitts, the head coach, explains this loss: “We have no middle school sports. We're like amatuers playing professionals."
In the 1988-1989 volleyball season, the returning letter-men will be without their previous coaches. Ms. Pitts coached for 8 years, and Mrs. Whittner coached for 7 years, but now they will be leaving the team. Don't lose the spirit
girls! Maybe next year will be a winning season. Good luck! Ra-quel Raya
SOCCER VS. VOLLEYBALL
MAYBE NEXT TIME GUYS
On November 4, 1987, at 6:30, the Alton High Soccer Team played the Alton High Volleyball Team in an exciting, fun-filled game of volleyball. Unfortunately, for the boys-they lost. The volleyball team beat them 3 games to 1.
Maybe next year even more people will come to see the volleyball soccer game. And maybe next year, with a little practice, the soccer team will beat the volleyball team. Make sure you come and see if it'll happen. Good luck guysl Raquel Raya

The Alton Soccer Redbirds, led by four year letterman Jim Johnson, three year letterman Mike Stutz, and lettermen Jim Rigdon and Mike Retzer, began the year with a positive attitude. The squad consisted of ten seniors: Matt Darr, Dave Eastman, Mark Haynes, Johnson, Otis Lewis, Mike Lucas, Chris Montgomery, Ray Morales, Stutz, and Eric Zyung. Unfortunately, the Redbirds started the season with a losing streak. They lost to Belleville East and arch rival Granite City before leaving on a road trip to Evansville, Indiana.
In Indiana, the Redbirds lost to Evansville Memorial High School, but they defeated the defending Indiana state soccer champions, Reitz High School, the next day. After returning to Alton, bad luck struck again; the Redbirds lost to the defending Illinois state soccer champions, Collinsville. Next they traveled to St. Louis where the Redbirds defeated Riverview High School on a spectacular goal by junior Denny Fish. Another string of losses led the Redbirds into the round-robin Alton Soccer Tournament. Beating Roxana High School represented
the highlight for Alton of this tournament.
Following regular season play, Alton entered regional action by defeating Wood River High School, which advanced the Redbirds into the second regional game in Granite City. Thanks to intense inspiration from assistant coach Don Schmidt, the Granite City game proved to be the best game Alton played all year. Midway through the game Johnson made a beautiful shot through the Granite City goal. However, with minutes left in the game, referees awarded Granite City the penalty shot that tied the game. The chances of Alton defeating the eventual Illinois state soccer champions end-
ed when Granite City scored in overtime.
Much highlighted the Redbirds' season. Stutz, Johnson, Morales, Fish, Rigdon, and Retzer were named Optimist soccer players of the week. Many of the underclassman proved to be valuable assests. To end the year Haynes was named Alton High's Optimist defensive player of the year; Zyung was named Optimist offensive player of the year; and Darr was named the Optimist 110 percent player of the year. Haynes was also named goalie on the Southwestern Conference second team. The graduating players wish next year's team good Iuck!

97JUNIOR VARSITY AND
A PROMISING FUTURE
Alton High's Junior Varsity Soccer Team enjoyed a record of 6 wins, 6 losses, and 2 ties under the leadership of Coach Don "The Legend" Schmidt. The JV team came away with a number of exciting games this year including a come-from-behind victory over Collinsville and a nail-biting tie against archrival, Granite City. With such a strong showing from a relatively young JV team, Alton High is almost assured of being a soccer powerhouse in the area for years to come. Chris Bechtold Scott Hicks

MOST VALUABLE MEMBER
In every sport everyone wonders who the most valuable player is. As far as the Freshman Soccer Team is concerned, they believe the most valuable member was their coach- Coach Mark Cappel. Sure, he had his grumpy days, but he did an over-all great job. They didn't win too many games, but their team spirit kept them going. Most importantly, they had lots of fun plus a great learning experience for the years ahead of them.
Their record ended up with 1 win, 3 ties, and 8 losses. Although they had a losing season, they came out with much experience under their belts, and at the end of the year they were very happy to receive their numbers.

The Alton High Football Red-birds ended their season with a strong showing. Despite a very discouraging start, the varsity football team came on strong at the end. Two of the highlights of the 1987 season were: defeating Belleville West in Belleville for the first time since the mid 60's and establishing a record good enough to earn them second place in the conference.
Senior Kyle Steiner was selected as first team, all Southwestern Conference punter, the only Alton High School player named to the first team. Steiner was also chosen as an Honorable Mention punter for the District. Senior Wilbur Kaiser, tailback, was chosen by his teammates as Most Valuable Player. Junior Jason Armstead, linebacker, was awarded the 1X0% award. Junior Greg Cross was selected as offensive back of the year and Senior Byron Mike was defensive back of the year. Junior Rico Gipson was chosen as defensive lineman of the year and Junior Alfred Womack was chosen as offensive lineman of the year. These honors from fellow teammates as well as the Ray Jackson Award presented to Kyle Steiner from the coaches were given to these outstanding players at the fall sports banquet. Congratulations to the players and the coaches for an outstanding and successful year!

The Alton Redbirds flew to a victory over cross-town rival Marquette 77-66. The Explorers jumped out to a quick lead over the Redbirds in the opening minutes with the one-two punch of Marquette's Mason and Blasingim, but in the second quarter Alton began to roll. With great defense by Joe Vann and the near perfect shooting by Rhett Nitschwitz, Alton had gained the lead by halftime. Alton's pressure man to man defense dominated the second half. Steve Watt controlled the middle with several key steals and impressive blocked shots. Sophomore Kevin Caldwell was nearly unstoppable offensively contributing over twenty points. Off the bench were Chris Hansen, Brad Phillips, and Deverick Spraggins all contributing to the win with rebounding help and precious ball control in the waning moments of the game.
105RUFFLED REDBIRD5 NEVER SAY DIE
Despite a regular season record of 6-15, the Redbirds refused to quit. Two and three point losses plagued the Birds, but Alton continued to play with tenacity in every ballgame regardless of the odds. All-state honorable mention Joe Vann, a Junior, led the team in rebounds and scoring, and with sophomore Kevin Caldwell next year's team has promise. Seniors Brad Phillips, Chris Hansen, Otis Lewis, Rodney Caffey, and Steve Watt managed to highlight their season by defeating Granite City on Senior Night by three points in overtime. Appropriately, seniors Watt, Phillips, and Hansen led scoring to close out the bittersweet season.

A Great Season For The "Wings"
The Alton Redwing's season ended this year when Alton lost the Regional Final game against Jerseyville by two points in overtime. The Redwings advanced to this stage after defeating Civic Memorial with two free throws by Tabatha Broomfield with one second remaining in the game.
Alton advanced in the Carrollton Tournament over North Green in overtime by scoring 12 points only to lose against Jerseyville. Alton's pre-regional record was 7-14. The record suffered this year due to difficulties with the Cahokia Team forcing their varsity status to miss two games, and also when the starting five didn't show for a game due to weather conditions. The Redwings will lose one senior manager, John Ewing, and three senior players: Robin Hamilton, who played her first basketball year at AHS; Gina Rhoades, who transferred late this season: and Earline Stewart, who completed her fourth year for the Redwings. The Redwings will have an excellent year next year with most of the team returning. Good Luck Next Year, Redwingsl Earline StewartI I

High school wouldn't be high school without cheerleaders. These perpetually peppy people are the ones responsible For leading the school in the awesome school cheers at the basketball games and at the pep assemblies. This years cheerleading squad is also fortunate to have two male cheerleaders who are invaluable in doing some of the stunts that require strength. As a fund raiser this year the cheerleaders sold "rootin' rags", in part to raise money but, also to increase school spirit.

123The fall comedy "The Odd Couple", directed by Mr. Cliff Davenport, proved itself one of the most comical ever seen on an Alton High stage. Even Davenport admitted he hadn't "had this much fun at rehearsals in years!" The performances of Kelly Bull and Sarah Jehle as the irrepressibly entertaining duo of Madison and Unger were remarkable in that they proved versatile as they yelled, laughed, and even sang.
As the curtain closes at the end of the show, the audience laughs and applauds in approval and delight. Yes, Neil Simon's revision of his play "The Odd Couple" proves that some things are better the second time around. The hilarious banter between the sloppy Oscar and nit-picky Felix only gains momentum in the female version as Olive Madison and Florence Unger have the girls over for diet colas and Trivial Pursuit, have their Spanish neighbors over for a date, and have an enjoyable time learning the importance of friendship.
The supporting roles of Mickey, Vera, Sylvie, and Renee were played by Lori Wedding, Carrie Reinhardt, Julie Howell, and Elaine Abromovich. The different sizes and facial expressions of these actresses helped them add color to the show as each individual developed her character.
And finally, the Spanish brothers Manolo and Jesus played by Mike Goeken and Dan Cope. The two boys livened the show with their Spanish accent, their oversized moustaches, and their poor interpretation of the English language.
As one can see, "The Odd Couple" was a success- a credit to Neil Simon, Mr. Davenport, and all those who put their time and effort into this production.

The Alton High Speech and Theater Department's winter production this year was D. D. Brooke's 'Rehearsal for Murder". This play is about a murder that took place one year prior to the present time. The victim's fiancee returns to the scene of the crime to solve the murder. The play is cleverly done in a sequence of flashbacks with the help of the follow spots.
The murder mystery is inexpensive to produce since it takes place in a empty theater. Therefore, the set and props required to stage the scenes are minimal. The fantastic performances of the actors and actresses helped carry the show without these essentials.

The Marching 100 held a band camp for two weeks in August. The band participated in many competitions, marched at football games and in the Halloween parade.
The members volunteered their time on August 14 and 15 by having a button sale. The purpose of button day is to earn money for the members to go to competitions.
The highlight of the year was their competition at Greater St. Louis. Steve Schoeffel, junior trumpet player, received the Traurnicht Outstanding Soloist Award, which is the overall soloist of 36 bands. Congratulations Marching 100.

SHOW CHOIRSINGS ATIONS
Togetherness was the secret to the success of the Singsations. Determination, persistence, and practice were also requirements of each individual member of the group. These devoted students met every Monday night in the chorus room.
They held a combined Christmas concert with Show Choir, Freshman chorus, and advanced chorus. Also, they performed at the Skyline Towers.
The purpose of Singsations is not only to improve their singing talent, but to get along with others. The ability to work together. “Singsations was an interesting experience and it's a great chance to meet new people," said sophomore Shannon Hickman.
Mrs. Jean Conrady, the chorus director, takes time to work with each group to make sure they're properly prepared.

Last year their uniform consist of red shirts and white pants but this year they tried something different. Each member wore blue jeans and got t-shirts saying "Redbird Rhythm." Pep Band was directed by Mr. David Drillinger.
Pep Band members were Sara Bumbacher, Sarah Wyatt, Stacy Mondy, Nicole Boehler, Cindy Wyatt, Cheryl Gooden, Buffy Osborne, Karen Churchman, Barb Ruckman, Carla Hokenson, Nate Folwell, Paul Gitchoff, Joi Terry, Lindsay Barth, Brad Mettler, Darren Eccles, Mike Gag-liardo, Joe Taylor, Steve Schoeffel, Jason Lewis, Chris Norman, Tim Malson, Christina Kidwell, Katie Medder, Chris Link, John Ridder, Blake Fleming, Alex Kanturek, Trisha Diserens, Allison Harper, Howard Gooden, Richard Velloff, Andy Schubert, Jay Cates, Jim Lavelle, and John Rulo.

Jazz Band is a club that helps the members understand and appreciate all kinds of jazz. They had practice after school under the direction of Mr. Gary Banks. They held several concerts over the year. To name a few, they played at Alton Square, in the auditorium with the middle school jazz band, with LCCC Jazz Lab Band (with guest soloist, Arnie Lawrence), and ABOB concert with the middle school and Mrs. Reid's dance class. They also competed at SIU-E. As you can tell, being a part of Jazz Band takes time and patience, yet rewarding.

Girls Learn The Fine Art Of Square Dancing
For the past two years, girls at Alton High have learned to square dance in their P.E. class. The P.E. teachers teach the girls during their first semester P.E. class. The class is only two weeks long, but it's lots of fun and very different. In general, the class offers and experience in square dancing that they might never have learned on their own. We're not sure where these fine skills will come into play in the girl's lives, unless they become professional square dancers, but it adds spice and breaks the monotony of the "regular P.E. class.THE
CLASS OF ALTON HIGH
WHY DO YOU WORK?
A car. Clothes. Money for college. These are some of the answers students give when asked Why do you work?' But, doesn't it take up most of your time? When asked this question, Meg Whittman said, "Not really. My hours are really pretty reasonable. There really isn't much conflict" Some people like to work and some don't depending on the place and the people they work with. Sometimes it doesn't matter if they like where they work or not. Most students need a job for insurance, extra spending money, clothes, college, etc., so they can't be too picky about where they work. No matter how hard anybody wishes, 'money doesn't grow on trees,' and we have to come about it some way, some LEGAL way.

COUNCIL IONS '88
Student Council Elections January 25-29
After a week of intense campaigning, the student body voted on the new officers for the 1988-1989 school year. Throughout the week, officer candidates could be seen taping posters up on every available square inch of wall, hanging brightly colored banners in the cafeteria, and passing out stickers, similar to campaign buttons. Many of the posters displayed surprising creativity and humorous sayings that often rhymed with the candidates name. Despite a few destructive students who took unholy delight in destroying other's signs, the majority of the students and faculty seemed to enjoy the scenery and the excitement generated throughout the week. As voting drew near and campaigning came to a close, the candidates admitted to being more than a little nervous. Many admitted trouble sleeping or headaches, especially before their speeches and the Thursday night before voting. Even with the jitters, the minor pains that accompanied the campaigning, nearly all the candidates agreed that it was a great experience.

The good ideas of interest are taken to the editorial board which consists of representatives from each of the three
classes. The controversial material is voted on by them. Next, the students are assigned stories and have deadlines to meet for each story. The best stories are chosen by a class vote. The chosen stories are typed on the computer and saved on a disk. Later the information is transferred to an ASCII
disk. Both disks are sent to Greater Metro Graphics where they set the stories in two-inch wide columns on slick paper which is referred to as a repro. The repros are copied and dummy pages are set up. After this is done, the headlines are written for the articles. These headlines along with any photos are
sent to J.B. Johnson vocational printing classes, where they set the headlines and return them to the Journalism classes. The final paste is then made using preprinted sheets and a light table so the copy is straight. Finally, the dummies are sent back to J.B. where the paper is printed.

The purpose of German Club is to help the students to understand the cultures of all German speaking countries.
Each year, they sponsor a three week stay for German Exchange Students during the Easter Holidays. The club takes the German students to Spring-field, St. Louis, and Cahokia Mounds to introduce them to our political system, our history, and the American way of life.
In return, German Club members are invited to go to Germany for three weeks during their summer vacation. They are introduced to their German exchange student s family, they tour their school and the country itself and they familiarize themselves with the culture.

Latin Club is a group of dedicated Latin students interested in Latin and community service. The club also seeks to promote friendship among Latin students, sponsering hay rides, flag football contests and similar activities. Earlier this year the Latin Club challenged the German Club to a soccer match. Although they lost 4-5, the day was fun and it helped unite the Latin Club even more. The club also entered an excellent float in Alton's Halloween parade. The float was their rendition of a Roman chariot. The third and fourth year students rode in the chariot while the first year slaves were chained behind. The Latin Club meets every other Wednesday at 7:50 am. Barb Hicks is the faculty sponser. The officers are: Lisa Miller and Lori Wedding (Consuls), Mary Ann Greenwood (Praetor), Amy Gibson (Quaestor), and Jill Kramer (Aedile).

Lifesavers just started last year in February. The program is patterned after the original, which began in Belleville. At a 2 1 2 day retreat, students are trained in communicating, listening skills, problem solving, and creative solutions. They receive up-to-date information on the use abuse of controlled drugs alcohol.
Members are expected to return to the school acting as peter models and willing listeners for others. Meetings continue to enhance and refine skills learned at the retreat. The students share a strong sense of community.
In addition to the retreat and monthly meetings, Lifesavers conducted a walk-a-thon last June at which they raised nearly $4000.

For two days every fall and three days in the spring a delegation of students from Alton High School get together to participate in the McKendree Invitational Model United Nations. Lebanon, Illinois is the sight for the Model U.N. which is a mock session of the real United Nations. Students assume the role of delegates or ambassadors for the countries assigned to their school. The purpose of the Model U.N. is to inform the delegates about the United Nations and the problems of international relations. This includes giving the delegates an understanding of how diplomacy, bloc politics, and caucuses work. The students get an overall view of the politics of other countries, and they gain firsthand experience at compromising and trade-offs which are necessary to reach major agreements. The U.N. sponsor is social studies teacher Mr. Steve Olson.

While most students have been cruising through school, just hoping to pass and graduate, others have been working hard to excell in the Honors Program.
Although Alton High has a gifted program for several years, the actual Honors Program only started this year. It was initiated for students who excell academically and want a challenge from their classes. This program is also a means of recognizing the achievement of these students and
to differentiate between the Honors Program and the regular program. Much emphasis is placed on sports and other extra-curricular activities, yet school is a place to learn and students who give their all in a classroom are just as important as students who give their all on a playing field or in a gym.
In order to be a part of the Honors Program you must be recommended by a teacher of the subject for which you are interested in. Grades and test
scores are also part of eligibility. The grades in Honors Classes are weighted. Classes added to the Honors curriculum are developed and planned in advance by staff members.
The Honors Program is a lot of hard work but it also has unlimited rewards. Teachers and Administrators have high hopes that this program will grow and that more students will become involved in the Honors Program at Alton High School.

Scholar Bowl is “The Sport of the Mind." The members of the Scholar Bowl team are selected for their quick recall and their ability to work the buzzer system. The team competes with other area schools in competition, which consists of rounds of toss-up and bonus questions that ask challenging questions on a variety of subjects, including history, math, science, English, literature, and current events. The team meets every Monday for about an hour, sharpening their skills for the competions. In addition to the local contests, the team competes in the State Tournament at the end of the school year.
Alton High's Scholar Teams have had a very successful year. The Freshmen team won 4th place out of 19 teams from southern Illinois. Jim Lavelle won an individual trophy for the 16th best individual score. The Freshmen team won a trophy at a tournament. It is the first trophy won by an Alton High Scholar Team.

Ola Palmblad is an exchange student living with the Rice family. He likes Alton High School and feels that school is easier here than in his home country of Sweden where he took eleven classes. Ola enjoys his private pilot class and computer class the most, but he has a little trouble in English! At school, he is involved in Track and Cross Country Running and in his spare time he enjoys going to Nautilus. He says he misses "real food" from Sweden and he doesn't watch much TV.
Marjaana Haverinen is from Finland. She is staying with the Batchelor family. Marjaana is involved in German Club and was active in the

Student Senate first semester. When she is not at school, she likes to watch the Cosby Show, jog, dance, and read. Even though she likes the U.S., she says she misses her two sisters, and nature — lakes, forests, saunas! However, she says American guys are more open."
GIAN MARIA TOMAT Gian Maria Tomat is from Italy. He is staying with the Strasser family of Alton. He lived in Italy in the town of Udine for the past two years with his grandparents in order to attend a high school that offered the subjects that he was interested in, such as electronics. Gian Maria likes to watch movies ("Fatal Attraction and' and "Children of a Lesser God" are two of his favorites), and football and basketball games. At school, his calculus class is easy for him but he has a little bit of trouble in American Literature class. Gian Maria feels that the rules at AHS are enforced more strictly than at schools in Italy, for example, absences, homework and tardies count for less there. He also feels that American colleges and universities are better than most in Europe.
PHILIPP GUSINDE Philipp was born in Dusseldorf, West Germany. He now lives in Mettmann, which is about eight miles away from Dusseldorf. He is staying in America for three months with the Gitchoff family. At Alton High, he is taking six classes, two of which, Auto Safety and Economics, are not offered at his school in Germany. Philipp says, "In comparison to the German school which 1 attend, Alton High is a bit easier, but not much because of daily homework, long school time (8:30-3:30 despite 7:55-1:10 in Germany), and everything in English." He says that it is interesting to see how many clubs and activities exist at AHS, compared to his small German school without many organizations. He plans to join the Tennis Team in the spring.
In Italy, he says, there are not a lot of fast foods, so he takes full advantage of them here in America. "I like the fast foods, even if it causes a little trouble for my face!", he says. Even though he misses his family and friends, he is glad to have had the opportunity to live in America and experience the culture here. "Over in Europe, according to Gian Maria, "America is such a kind of dream for everybody ... it was for me and it is still for my friends who are writing me."176COSMETOLOGY

Think about it. Your home is where you spend most of your time — eating, watching TV, doing homework, talking on the phone and sleeping. The J.B. Johnson Center is proud to be training young people how to design, build, and decorate the homes of tomorrow. For example, in architectural drafting, students learn how to work with blueprints; in building trades they learn how to actually build homes. Electronics, obviously, is immensely important also, and the interior decorating course is a valuable tool that teaches the future interior decorators the methods used to improve home decorating.

The Alton High School had many a rumor That let out my fear
and have me my humor.
Elevators were one
that calmed me alas But, when I went searching none did I pass.
So there in the hall,
Ten books in each arm,
I was ready to faint full of alarm.
Then came that day
I knew it would rain;
But, of course there's the tunnel from the Annex to the Main. After second hour
as I predicted, It rained.
But I saw no tunnel-
I was drenched, full of pain. Being extremely angry,
I remembered the pool I could finally swim in, so relaxing and cool.
I snuck on my bathing suit searching again.
For the rumor I'd heard
from who I thought was a friend. As I stood in the rain, being the fool,
I realized there was none.
No elevator, No tunnel. No pool, -a gullible Freshman Claire Sun

IN MEMORY OF . . .
A FINAL GLANCE
One of the most memorable events of this year was the sage of baby Jessica. Eighteen-month-old Jessica McClure fell into an abandoned well. For fifty-eight frustrating hours, paramedics and volunteers worked to exhaustion trying to save the life of this small child. This touching event brought the family, community, and perhaps even the whole country a little closer together. Even the smallest incidents can show how much people care.
The St. Louis Cardinals were the National League Champions, but lost the World Series in the seventh game at Minnesota.
Evangelists Jim and Tammy Baker's multi million dollar empire was destroyed by a sex scandal within the ministry.
238HEADLINERS OF 87-88
Lt. Col. Oliver North was put on trial in July. He was accused of appropriating funds made from illegal arms sales to Iran and giving it to the Contras in Nicaragua to overthrow the Communist Sandinista government.
The 1988 election year features the following Republican and Democratic candidates.
After two unsuccessful attempts by President Reagan to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court, the House finally approved the appointment of Anthony Kennedy. Previously Reagan had nominated the socialist libertarian turned conservative Robert Bork and the ultra-conservative Robert Ginsburg, but both nominations were rejected.

4) Carlinville farmer James Denbys' plane was sho$ down over Nicaragua.
5) The Sesquicentenial celebrating Altons' 150 year anniversary.
