THE "YOUNG AMERiCANS"
The "Young American" is seen in the
faces of the students of Alvo-Eagle as well
as in other schools. These young citizens
have a great responsibility Whic h will
challenge their ability to defend their beliefs.
Development and environment play a big
part in his roll as a citizen, Respect for the
flag of our country, the stars and stripes, and
the flag of our state is a good foundation upon
which to build citizenship. At Alvo-Eagle both
flags were on display throughout the year and
all students began the day by saluting the flag
and repeating the Allegiance.
The "Young American" is he who believes
in the principles of democracy and would
defend his country with his life if necessary,
Love of country and respect for it's leaders
comes through learning about them and their
actions. ln school, the students study the
history of this great country and the hardships
suffered by many people to make the United
States what it is today.
We invite you to turn the pages of this
yearbook and meet our "Young Americans".

Reorganization was the principal concern
of the A-E school board during the 1964-65
year. They spent numerous hours working on
a plan to combine the districts of Bennet,
Walton, Palmyra, and Alvo-Eagle for the
purpose of providing a better curriculum for
the students. Meetings were held at both the
Alvo and the Eagle gyms to explain to the
people of the community the need of such a
plan and it's advantages. Trips were taken by
the board and community members to visit
other schools which had tried similiar plans
to see how they were advancing.
Reorganization also took place within the
board itself. The new officers are: Wayne
Weyers, Chairmang Ray Bowmaster, Vice-
President, Marguarite Leaver, Secretary,
and Harry Robertson, Treasurer. Waldo
Winters and Dal I-Ialvorsen, members of the
bus committee, are in charge of the servicing
and specifications for buses and the schedul-
ing of bus routes, The entire board formed the
Americanism committee. They carefully
examined, inspected, and approved all the
text books used in teaching American History
and Civil Government.
The Board of Education sees that the best
education possible is provided for the students
who attend Alvo- Eagle. They devote their time
to help the administration solve any problems
that may arise.

Iighlighi Oi The -Year
The highlight of the year tor the junior
class was the Junior-Senior Banquet. The
juniors spent several class meetings as well
as some of their leisure time planning and
working to make the banquet a success. The
juniors honored the seniors at the Colonial
Inn in Lincoln. The theme of the banquet was
"Moonlight and Roses". Mr. Ed Stevens, who
was a past coach and teacher at A-E, was
guest speaker for the evening. In his speech
he started with the dawn of the day as the
beginning of our lives and the moonlight and
roses as our future.
Bob Bowmaster served as Master of
Ceremonies. He introduced the parts of the
program by using humorous names which
co-ordinated with the theme, Jeanine
Muenchau, junior class Vice-President, gave
the Welcome and Bette Walberg, senior class
President, gave the Response. For entertain-
ment a sextet of junior girls sang the theme
song "Moonlight and Roses". For a second
number a group of junior and senior girls
and boys, accompanied by Mrs. Nancy Bargen,
ended the program by singing "Everything
Comin' Up Roses".

Business publications, a journalism
course, was offered for the first time this
year. One of the purposes of the class was to
publish the ECHO, the school paper. Editor
Bette Walberg, aided by Assistant Editor Judy
Oberle and Junior Editor Diana Rogers, did
a fine job of publishing the EAGLE ECHO.
To make the newspaper coverage more
complete, concise, and current the "Little
ECHO" was published and circulated to
junior and senior high students twice a month.
The paper was divided into' the following
sections and supervised by students from the
publications class: Features--Marlene Corr,
Sports--Dick Frohlich, Girl's Sports--
J e a ne tte Weyers, Boy's Sports--S tev e
Sampson, Grade School--Merna Robertson,
Art--Georgia W a g n e r, a n d Mimeograph

by Mr. Verl Flack, adviser, attended the
Nebraska High School Press Association
Clinic at the University of Nebraska to
learn better newspaper procedures.

Adviser, Mr. Verl Flack, co-editors
Marlene Corr, and Cathy McNeil and junior

many hours on page layouts.
Typing was just one of Bette Wa1herg's many jobs.

IN CLOSING -----
So ends our account of the school year 1964-65. The seniors have
Walked down the halls for the last time as students of Alvo-Eagleg the
classes have moved up and onto broader horizons. Those who remain
here at Alvo-Eagle will adda little more warmth each day to these memory
filled halls. Those who leave and go on to their chosen professions will
look back over their shoulders every once in awhile and remember
those Wonderful days spent at Alvo-Eagle. -
Our sincerest gratitude ' goes to Mr. Verl Flack, our yearbook
adviser, for all the hours he spent helping us edit the EAGLE.
It is to the "Young Americans" that we leave this message:
As you stand there, and are hearing
Friends and loved ones gladly cheering
From the Way you've toiled and striven
Came to them the pride you've given.
Should you fail them some tomorrow,
Just as deep would be their sorrow.
Even in your cradle sleeping,
You had this day in your keeping.
Now from school as you're departing
And the tasks of life are starting,
Give them joy and fail them never.
Keep their pride in your favor.
