1 970 Headlight Altoona High School The door of Involvement closes as another school year conies to an end. Four years of participa- tion and absorption in school activities have harvested a multitude of treasured memories. Memories of victorious games and memories of defeat. Memories of excitement and thrills. But, the most im- portant memory is the memory of being together vk ' ith friends who, also, share our memories. The hope for happiness in the present and success in the future spurred the students on to higher goals in their four years of Involvemetit We Honor Men in Space On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong, Mike Collins, and Buzz Aldrin made the first historic walk on tlie moon. During the hour and 17 minutes tliey were on the surface of the moon, they collected moon-dust, rocks, and took many pictures-wliich have since been sold or donated for research. Their courageous mission was one of involvement and peace. We, the Seniors of 1970, are dedicating our annual to these three great men.

This undefeated freshman team was the finest that I have ever had the opportunity to coach. The team members all siiowed great desire and the ability to play together as a unit. Long hard practice sessions paid off in the final game with Cadott when in the third quarter Altoona began to overpower their pre- viously unbeaten foe and went on to win 22-0.

Much wUl be remembered of the 1969-1970 Rails. I will remember them as the team that adapted itself to all types of teams and went on to conquer most. There were times of disappointments and times of happiness. We learned to win and we learned to lose, but most of all we did both like men. They put forth their best effort and were always ready for the big ones. A great job done by a group of young men I ' ll always be proud of. f C i» - - 32 Gary Bresina olin Everson Tom Planert Bob Bohn Kip Hoffman Bob Pecor Greg Larson Duane Hugdahl Ted Baehr Carl Wick fi Involved in Winning Shots v r.VN:-• To■ ' T. v:; .•r - ' : ' y »-;c ' ■.■v »vo tanc Ulintci?

Circus Hour featured all aspects of gymnastics ranging from the basic beginners to the highly skilled and advanced college students who appeared as guests. Being tlie first show of this type to be given at Altoona, it was well received by the students and the public. Gym- nasts delighted the audience as did Mouse Gail Ness who moven the clock which designated the change in acts. Clown Marion Stein performed antics on the mini tramp to add humor to tiie siiow. Proceeds from Circus Hour were used to purcliase a new balance beam and horse, essential equipment for the Tumbling Class. 41 n mn $ti Ael J tn A aj King Tom and Queen Sue smile as their court iooics on. 42 King and Queen lead the traditional Grand March.

Our decor for the social event had a floral arch through which the couples en- tered, a flower cart used for serving punch, and a maypole in the center of the gym. The soft pastels in decorations proved a charming background for the couples who attended. ' Did anyone bring a deck of cards?? 45 I Student Council Back row: J. Beaver, C. Ness, C. Everson, K.

The purpose of student government is to give students the power to make decisions which affect them and their school. Perhaps the most important function that student government should play is to effect change which is needed in education; change not for the sake of change but change which will result in our educational system beginning to relate to the needs of today and tomorrow rather than yesterday. Change oftentimes comes at a very slow pace because of two basic reasons. The first being the fact that oftentimes institu- tions, as well as individuals, are afraid of the unknown and unwilling to experiment. There is a new frontier in America. We are all pioneers of meaningful social change. The other reason is that too many of us tend to remain unconcerned as long as we as individuals are not threatened with society ' s evils. We seem to have forgotten about many of the world ' s people who have not been so fortunate. We oftentimes do not use the opportunities we have to be heard; we have become far too willing to let someone else accept the responsibility. This year ' s Student Council is unique in that we have begun to examine new frontiers of change and we have begun to lake the responsibility. Many new reforms have been made which will open the doors to the futur e. This year at Altoona will prove to be a catalyst for future councils, as students are becoming more and more aware of problems and will continue looking for methods of solving them. 46 romotes Leadership Tim promoted more patriotism. Becky suggested new school improvements. Becky and Tim congratulate Tod. Tod forwarded more student voice. 47 Involved in Motivating THE G.A.A. is a girls ' organization which gives the girls of Altoona a chance to earn a letter by participating in various sports. To earn a letter, a member of the club must attend all sports ' activities set up by the club, thus receiving ten points per hour and accumulating 550 points at the end of the year. The officers for the year were: president, Anita Zachau; vice president, Pat Brost; and secretary -treas- urer, Diane Johnson. THE PEP CLUB is an organization to promote school spirit and unity with- in our school. This year each class elected two council members to help their class in making sure that signs were painted and spirit promoted. Points have to be earned to receive a pep club pin the ini- tial year, but each year thereafter an emblem will be added. We have had good response from all students and we hope the new improvements will be an asset to the club. 48 School Spirit THE POM POM CLUB is an organi- zation to provide half time entertainment at football and basketball games. This or- ganization consists of twenty-five girls who attend various meetings and practices to learn routines. At performances tlie girls dress in either black shorts or red flirts, a white blouse, red socks, and white tennis shoes. A pair of red, black, and white pom-poms complement the outfit. LETTER CLUB. Any boy who participates in the sports offered at Altoona and wins a letter be- comes a member of the boys ' let- ter club. Funds for the club are made by checking coats at basket- ball games and by selling Altoona Railroader T-sliirts. Officers for the year were: president, Paul Hudson; vice president. Bob Pecor; and secretary-treasurer. Gary Schlewitz. I JMS 49 Grace - Strength - Talent I rip more pants this way!!! ' Our acrobatic performers. Ready for battle.

In forensics the students use the tech- niques they have learned and enter one of several categories for the competitive meets. Declamations, interpretative read- ing of prose and poetry, public address, and original oratory are some of the events from which they can choose. Al- toona participates in the Cloverbelt sub- district. A winners go to the Eau Claire District; and if they receive another A rating they go to the state contest in Madison. Last year, LaVonne Duszynski and Diane Michelson received A ratings at the state. Organized in the fall of 1962, the members of the library club have contri- buted service to our school as assistants in operating the school library. Each fall delegates have attended the Northwest Wisconsin Student Librarians ' Workshop held at various schools in our area. Our members have contributed to these work- sliops by speaking and participating in panel discussions. Two members attended a summer workshop at the campus in Madison. The club has sponsored money- making projects in a modest way, having purchased pictures and equipment for the library. Officers for the 1969-1970 school year have been: Sandy Gunderson, president; and Debbie Olson, secretary -treasurer. 53 Organized Action The Tracks of Time was the new name given to the monthly publication of the AHS school paper. With a newly formed journalism class and a better or- ganized staff an improved paper was produced. The intent of the staff was to establish a more uniform issue and to improve the over-all content. With changes and experiments appearing in each succeed- ing issue a successful pattern was sought so as to be both interesting and informative. Learning by failures and successes, this staff set a criterion for a much better paper in the future. The ski club was organized under the direction of Mr. John Banks, student teacher from Stout State University. Mr. Banks holds his ski instruction certifi- cate and is a member of the National Ski Patrol. The purpose of the ski club, aptly named the Sno-TroUs , is to promote an interest among students in recre- ational skiing, learning pre-season body building e. ercises, learning about prop- er ski-wear, and the basic mechanics of the sport itself. 54 A Bit of Everything She ' s a swinger!!!

Mike, who would have been a junior tliis year, was a good student, who particularly enjoyed Industrial Arts, and was interested in football, basketball, and the Babe Ruth League. He is missed by all who knew him. The entire student body and our faculty join in extending our deepest sym- pathy to his mother and father, as well as his brother, Ricky, who is in the fourth grade at our school. Our Christmas vacation was saddened by the death of Mr. Wayne West, who was a faculty member of Altoona Public School for 17 years. Mr. West started teaching Industrial Arts at Altoona in 1952. Since then he has helped plan and equip three new shop areas and an electronics room. In 1968 Mr. West shifted some of liis work to the fields of guidance, organizing the first such program in our school. He initiated a planned testing program, promoted annual career days, handled the scholarship pro- gram, served as advisor to the student council, counseled the students, took an active interest in the many functions out of school, and for the past two years had been elementary prin- cipal. Mr. West served in World War H and was a charter member and past president of the Altoona Lion ' s Club. We salute Mr. Wayne West, a teacher and a friend to the students of A.H.S. 133 -- c t ' ' ' .
