LOOKING AHEAD .
The AlWood School District was established July 1 1948 Since
that time there has been a continual growth in enrollment of our school
population As a result of a thorough study by the Board of Education
and the Citizens' Committee biulding plans for a new high school
Since it is the responsibility of the people to provide educational
facilities for their youth the people 1n the AlWood School District
have given ample evidence of their interest by authorizing the build
ing of a new high school
The students and faculty are looking forward to the completion of
the new building with a feeling of great pride and with deep appreciation
to the citizens of the AlWood School District for their devoted 1nterest
in providing these facilities
E E Fischer
Superintendent of Schools

pass its own past achievements
In a short t1rne the AlWood High School will find itself housed in a
new building fitted out with the latest and best equipment designed to
carry on educational activities All the fine buildings and equipment
ever created however will not make a really fine school without a
student body which will strive to make itself worthy of such an environ

determined resolve that they will never be satisfied with poor shoddy
effort but will throw themselves into all school activities curricular
and extra curricular in such a manner that no doubt will remain that
they are doing their very best
If this spirit of high level achievement is maintained in our student
body the communities supporting our high school will feel amply well
pa1d for the expenditures that they have made in their effort to provide
the boys and girls of AlWood with adequate educational facilities
and giving every promise of developing into an institution that will sur-

In their third year of existence AlWood's Pep Club has proved
to be a worth-while group to the school, Some of their projects
include sponsoring a student bus to out-of-town games, entering a
top-ranking float in the Homecoming Parade, sponsoring the print-
ing of basketball programs for the home games, presenting skits
at the pep sessions, sponsoring the stand at home basketball games
when it was their turn, gene ral planning of the Athletic Banquet,
helping the cheerleaders purchase their suits, and encouraging the
athletic teams and fans.
Besides this, the Pep Club has fulfilled the main purpose for
which it was established--to promote school spirit and promote
interest in all athletic activities.

The 1955-56 athletic season has been a successful one for AlWood.
Winning first place in the Cornbelt Conference in football, compiling a
perfect record of eight wins and no losses fthe first time this have been
done in the history of the schoollg getting temporary possession of the league
traveling trophy, the "Golden Ear", and the winning of the conference first
place trophy by the sophomore basketball team, with a respectable 16 and
3 record -- these were the big highlights of the year through March.
Track has not yet started at the time of this writing, but the out look
is good, with the prospect of many new school records being set.
However, the greatest thrill a boy receives while participating in
athletics in not included in the won-and-lost records. The records will
soon be forgotten, but the memories of hard practices, half-time instruc-
tions during games by the coach, the injuries, and the joys of a game well
played will live on in the minds of the players long after scores have passed
from memory. The members of this year's teams have spent long hours
practicing to be capable of giving their best to the team and to the school.
Their efforts have been rewarded by the records they have made.
It is appropriate that we include in this Sportscope a tribute to our
coaching staff. It is generally acknowledged that a coach is no better than
his teamg but it is also true that a team is no better than its coach. Coach
Behnke and his assistant, Mr. Hegwood, have devoted many hours to teach-
ing their teams not only the fundamentals but also the principles of good
The backing given the athletic teams is very important. No ball club
can play its best before empty stands. This year, as in the past, the co-
operation on the part of the cheerleaders, the Pep Club, and the older
fans has been tremendous. This has been reflected in the spirit and attitude
of the team.
AlWood athletics have a bright future. The ninth grade team enjoyed
a fine season in football and an outstanding year in basketball, completing
a rugged basketball season with only one game lost. This year's freshmen
will undoubtedly form the nucleus of a winning varsity in the years to come.
