Our Key to the Future
Let me tell you about AlWood ... the hurry and scurry to get to class. Mr. Metzger's good-morning chimes, the endless lunchlines, the worry and work for those impossible A's, the laughter and fun of skit night and the minstrel show, the driving school spirit at basketball games, the solemnity of the Christmas program, the indescribable feeling of graduation. This is AlWood. This is our key to the future.

Classes That Develop Us
Experiencing the fundamentals of good housekeeping
8Panel discussions stimulate ideas in English IV.
Mentally and Physically
Parlez-vous franca is? Practicing for the half-time shows
Girls’ P. E.
With a "come on, ladies" and a smile, Mrs. Hardin is ready for action. She has something for everyone in her curriculum—from tumbling to ball gymnastics. And Mrs. Hardin's classes are "learning hours," not "play hours!"
ALBERT MILLER, M.D. HA INLINE
From beginning to the present, the history of the world has been shown us by Mr. Miller and Mr. Hainline. Besides teaching these classes, Mr. Miller and Mr. Hainline instruct Boys' P.E. and Industrial Arts, respectively.
DOROTHY SWANSON, RICHARD GEIGER, DIANA RILEY
Leading us to careers in business, homemaking, and agriculture are Mrs. Swanson, Mrs. Riley, and Mr. Geiger. Besides being business instructor, Mrs. Swanson is also the diligent advisor of our Annual Staff. Mrs. Riley is home economics teacher, as well as being the advisor of F.H.A., and Mr. Geiger is instructor in agriculture, advisor of the hard-working Student Council, and also F.F.A. sponsor.
10Us the Keys
Our school nurse is kept very busy with 500 students — especially during the annual epidemics that strike at AlWood. But Mrs. Mason's pleasant and patient attitude is as good as any medicine when we aren't feeling up to par. She also instructs the senior girls in a very practical home nursing course.
DON METZGER, GENE BEHNKE
Showing us through equations, theorems, and math problems are Mr. Behnke (better known as "Coach") and Mr. Metzger. Not only does Mr. Behnke show us how to tackle math, but he also shows our football, basketball, and track squads some techniques in playing with good sportsmanship and skill.
ESTELLE MILLER, DON RICGLE
Every year our band and chorus become fine organizations due to the efforts of Mr. Riggle and Mrs. Miller. They work conscientiously to prepare the band and choruses, plus ensembles, for contest. Each year the public may enjoy the results of their efforts by the minstrel show, band concerts, and Christmas program.
11. . . To the Future
LOUIS BROWNING, WALTER MINDER Mr. Browning, with his "I didn't drive you in here with a bat" and "You don't have to pass this course," tries to make us learn something in his classes of chemistry, physics, and biology. Mr. Minder teaches the freshmen general science and the seventh and eighth grade P.E. classes. He is also coach for the junior high basketball, track, and baseball squads (junior and senior high).
RUTH BLOOMBERG, FRANCES FISCHER Our foreign language department offers AlWood students Latin I and II, and French I. Latin is taught by Mrs. Bloomberg. English III and the directing of the junior and senior class plays are included in her busy schedule. Mrs. Fischer is the French "professeur." Also, among her day's activities is music instruction for the primary grades.
JANE WEECH, IRENE McGAUGHY The importance of grammar and literature for our use in our future occupations is stressed to us by our English teachers. Mrs. Weech works with the freshmen and sophomores in the mechanics of English and different types of literature. Mrs. McGaughy instructs the seniors through term papers and English literature, such as Shakespeare's "Macbeth," plus other aspects of grammar and literature. Also, through her work as librarian every student may be proud of Alwood's well-organized library.
12AtWood High School has progressed steadily under the supervision of Mr. Metzger, the principal. Included in his daily schedule is everything from announcements on the intercom to instruction of the general math class. He also works with the senior class as their advisor. In spite of his busy schedule he is willing to help any student who wants counselling on colleges, scholarships, or school problems.
OFFICE STAFF Kay Murdock, secretary to Mr. Metzger, and Mrs. Diggs, secretary to Mr. Fischer, work hard to keep the school offices up-to-date and in order. Miss Murdock has multiple duties, but among the most important is filling out the students' report cards. Mrs. Diggs' various duties include the essential task of making out salary checks for personnel.
Among Mr. Fischer's daily activities are seeing to all executive business of our school system, visiting each school building, and attending numerous meetings and consultations. Other problems, such as making decisions on snowy days as to whether classes can be held, often crop up. Under the able guidance of Mr. Fischer and the other AlWood personnel, the AlWood school system has advanced rapidly in its thirteen years.COOKS : Dorothy Elliott, Liz Anderson, Beryl Perry.

National Honor Society
The highest honor any AlWood student can attain is membership in the National Honor Society. Not only must one have outstanding scholastic ability, but sound character, leadership abilities, and a willingness to serve others. Each year the faculty chooses the members and they are inducted at an assembly in the spring.
Membership in the National Honor Society should be a goal for all AlWood students. Those students chosen have shown that they have used the opportunities offered to them in high school and are exceptionally ready for the future with learning, personality, cooperativeness and leadership to back them.

Seniors’ Big Nights
Meg (Judy Thayer) gets her man.
These girls are not so successful.
"Ask Any Girl,” adapted from Winifred Wolfe's novel of the same name and directed by Mrs. Ruth Bloomberg, was presented on November 18, 1960, by members of the senior class. Meg Wheeler, a small-town girl who is looking for a husband, convinces her parents by the use of phony statistics that she should be allowed to live in New York City a year "to develop both mentally and emotionally.” After many hilarious experiences, Meg finally achieves her goal and wins the heart of a business executive.
Prompters Karen Swanson, Jackie Anderson.
Director Mrs. BloombergJUNIOR-SENIOR PROM--STARLIGHT RHAPSODY
the Prom, and Commencement
Because the last deadline for this book falls on February 28, the pictures on this page are, of course, those of the 1960 spring activities. However, what 1961 senior does not remember the planning, work and fun the 1960 juniors had when this beautiful prom was in the making?
Commencement night is always a night of happiness and pride, twinged with some sadness and parting.
It is the climax of the student's high school career, and our AlWood commencements are dignified and meaningful. Almost 57 percent of the members of this class is now in college.

Sock hops after home basketball games rounded out the winter "social season" at AlWood. Groups sponsoring them were Sophomores. G.A.A. and F.H.A.-

One of the major projects of the AlWood Student Council was to promote the idea of sending an AlWood student abroad. Three AlWoodians are applying for this opportunity. Other projects included: the 12th Annual
Homecoming, Student-Administration Day, and Dress Up Day, which promoted better dress and behavior among the students.

There are so many new members this year in F.T.A. we wonder if this indicates that they think there is much room for improvement in this Field. We know the students joined this organization with the sincere
intention of learning about this profession. Our Future Teachers are members of the Blackhawk Division of Future Teachers of America. Each year we sponsor a Christmas project for a needy family.

Librarians Gain by Serving
The AlWood Library Club is made up of AlWood Students who have given an hour or more a week of their free time to help make our library one of which we can be proud.
Providing displays for the display case is one of the most important jobs of the librarians. These displays add interest to the library and acquaint the students with many of new books in our library.

G. A. A.
The Girls' Athletic Association is an organization whose primary purpose is recreation. In fair weather you will find its members taking hikes, or playing baseball or soccer. During the winter months we turn our attention to ice-skating, volleyball, stunts and tumbling, and basketball--just to name a few. In the spring our main interest is track which is highlighted by the G.A.A. Olympics. Members earn points by attending each of these ac-

tivities. The first year award is a set of numerals signifying the person's year of graduation. This is followed by an AlWood letter and two state awards.
PLEDGE: I promise to uphold the ideals of the Girls’ Athletic Association by promoting interest in ath -letics and the out-of-doors; by living so that I may be healthy and strong; and by making good sportsmanship a constant factor in my conduct.

F. H. A. — Doorway to Better Homes
Formal initiation of officers at the Mother’s Tea in May of 1960 officially opened this year’s F.H.A. activities.
The first activity last fall was the Section Rally in Geneseo at which Kathyrn Litton was elected vice president of our Section. Late fall and midwinter were highlighted by Daddy Date Nite and the Christmas Dance. The spring season was opened with the girl-ask-boy Sadie Hawkins Dance.

The degree of solemnity varies with the performance. For the minstrel show the mood is gay and flippant.
The peak of solemnity is reached during the Christmas season when the chorus tells to the community by song and carol the glories of Christ's birth.
The seriousness of the chorus members is evidenced by the perfection of their performances at contest and spring concert.

PEP CLUB OFFICERS Kathy Speas, Reporter; Judy Bailey, Treasurer; Linda Edmund, President; Pat Diggs, Student Council; Karen Bredberg, Secretary
The purpose of this peppy group of girls is to promote school spirit and interest in all athletic activities. As you can well see, the Pep Club of 1960-1961 carried on this work in the typical AlWoodian manner.
Not only did the Pep Club promote their many traditional programs--the student bus. Athletic Banquet, basketball programs, a Homecoming skit, and pep sessions--but they also instituted some new ones.
60Our Pep Section
Alwood buttons were given to the Pep Club members and the members of the basketball team; green and white shakers were sold to the entire student body; and a special section was reserved at home games where Pep Club members, clad in white blouses, sat to staunchly support the Aces.
Varsity Cheerleaders: Carol Munson, Linda Davison, Patsy Molberg, Loretta Johnson. Junior Varsity Cheerleaders: Shirley Swanson, Janice Nelson, Diane Henrickson, Jeamne Engstrom.

Early season injuries were certain to reduce the team's efficiency, but it was not until the season progressed that it became obvious how undermanned the team was.
The Aces fell to the power of Orion, Sherrard, Rock-ridge, and ROVA.
The bright spots for the Aces came late in the season. The Cambridge Vikings fell to the Aces. There was a tight game with Westmer that found the Aces on top for the season's final game.
A hard-fought homecoming game ended in a tie with Winola. The Aces also tied with Atkinson.

Baseball and track round out the spring sports schedule. However, since the yearbook must go to press before this year's season begins, the information on this page covers the spring of 1960.
It was a very rainy season, and many of the events had to be canceled. We are looking forward this year to more favorable weather and a really full schedule of baseball games and track meets.
