We Work on World Peace and Friendship
Mr. Geiger welcomes the American Field Service students.Our inspiration--the United Nations Building in New York City reflect ing the city's skyline.
Here in our community is our own miniature United Nations--the AlWood High School. This past summer there were 36 delegates representing 21 countries here on Independence Day. Our community was host to these students, who were on their way home after serving as exchange students in the United States. These students, our own exchange students, our visitor from Luxembourg--all of these people have helped to develop thoughts of world peace and friendship within us.
These students shared with us a weekend of discussion, sports, dancing, and a good old-fashioned 4th of July picnic.
Peace and friendship begin right here
at school and in our community. We are learning to get along with classmates each day. Each week, through sports or some other conference event, we are given the opportunity to widen our circle of friends.
We are striving to be friendly with each and every person with whom we come in contact and to develop our understanding of our community--locally, nationally, and internationally.
We would like to share with you the joys, friendships, and understandings we gained of our own schoolmates and of teenagers all over the world in this year of '61 and '62.
3A panel composed of three exchange students and Diane Bodeen, Mrs. Hardin, Richard Carlson, and Rhodie Liggett discussed questions about American and foreign countries.
Our Year Was Enriched by Sharing Ideas
These unsuspecting victims were trying to take a picture of some of the Americans they had been visiting.
Our sports-minded boys learned the skills of soccer under the capable guidance of these foreign visitors.

Mr. Metzger looks over our first six-weeks report cards.
This year is Mr. Metzger's eleventh year as principal at AlWood. Our high school has steadily progressed under his excellent supervision. His counseling and guidance service to the students, involving testing, interviewing and advising them as to suitable careers, is an important phase of his work.

Mr. Fischer became the superintendent of the AlWood Schools in 1948. He has had to become an expert on school details that most of us never think of. On snowy days when he must decide on holding classes or canceling them, he must wish he could also be an expert weatherman.
Mrs. Litton, secretary to Mr. Metzger, and Mrs. Diggs, secretary to Mr. Fischer, do the daily secretarial work, the filing of student information and recording of student grades on report cards,
CATHERINE DIGGS Secretary to Mr. Fischer
DOROTHY LITTON Secretary to Mr. Metzger
27Mrs. Fischer, Ron Barman and Shirley Bowman in a French conference.
Even though we may never take part in a Cape Canaveral rocket test, we can still learn and apply our chemical and physical sciences that we learn here at AlWood. Under the watchful eyes of our calm and collected science teachers, we learn by experimenting and by the actual application of scientific theories.
Mathematics may be the same old
"stuff, " but at AlWood we have a shining new face, namely Mr. Kittelson's, to teach it. He always tries to present the same old math to the students in a very interesting way. This way we learn our math and enjoy it, too. Mr. Metzger teaches many freshmen and sophomores in his general math course.

Mr. Browning assists Ron Merideth, Larry Hanson, Neal McMeekan and Merle Norburg in setting up an experiment.Senior English class concentrates.
Two hundred thirty-two active AlWood students file into our English classrooms every day to get their daily dose of literature, grammar, and spelling. With the presentemphasis on communication skills, every teacher is urged to be an English teacher, but of course the main task falls on our three capable English instructors, Mrs. McGaughy, Mrs. Weech, and Mrs. Bloomberg. They must prepare the fifty per cent of our graduates entering college every year for the demanding English classes of the colleges and universities.

Typing I class watches the copy.
Some day one may recognize the name of a high executive and say, "He studied business at AlWood High." In our business department at AlWood we can learn and apply the rules of typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, and office practice under the guidance of Mrs . Swanson.
In typing we learn to type important letters to big businesses; in shorthandthe girls take dictation from an imaginative and handsome executive; in bookkeeping we learn how to make and spend money; and in office practice the girls learn, among other things, how to find something once they have filed it.
30Band practices for football show.
If one were to visit our high school during band or chorus period he would hear many different sounds. All the sounds may not be the best, but with a little work and some polishing, we can perfect those sounds and come out with a number good enough to perform.
Our chorus has an annual minstrel show, and we have just purchased a grand piano with the money we have earned. Our band has annual concerts, and the money from these concerts sends students to music camp in the summer.

A boys' P.E. baseball game.
Physical education, commonly known as P.E., has been expanded in many ways, some good and some bad. The girls have started badminton and cage ball, and the boys play basketball or volleyball. With the gymnasium the size it is, two volleyball games can be played at the same time, which enables each participant to have a better chance. When it comes to running laps, the gym seems very monstrous, but this all goes into building our bodies by exercise .
31Mr. Metzger, Jim Taylor, and general math.
Way over in the northermost regions of our building are found the industrial arts classroom and shop, and the ag classroom, shop and laboratory. In these pleasant modern shops, future builders may develop their first interest in a career in that field, and our area's basic industry, agriculture, takes on a business like character. In these days of technical farming and close margin of profit, no farmer can know too much about his business, as these boys learn.
Mr. Geiger teaches ag, and Mr. Hain-line divides his time between American Problems class and industrial arts.

Foreign language classes at AlWood have taken on a truly foreign flavor in the last two years, since exchange students from Europe have been members of them. As we watch the progress of these European students translating from French or Latin into English, or vice versa, while at the same time they are thinking in their native language, we gain new respect for the importance of mastery of foreign languages to international relations.
Mrs. Fischer and Mrs. Bloomberg have the important assignment of French and Latin instruction.

32Sandra Lindsey, Mrs. McGaughy, and English
In our social studies department, we discuss and try to solve the world's problems. Under the guidance of Mr .
Hainline and Mr. Miller, we have our roundtable discussions and hold our meetings. Mr. Miller exposes us to our World's history and our United States' history; Mr. Hainline discusses our American problems . We may laugh at the idea of having a great statesman come from our school, but anything is possible. We have two very capable instructors, and the rest is up to us, the students.

The mouth-watering scents which often meet one near the home ec department verify the fact that those girls are really learning to cook and bake, as well as to sew fashionable clothes. We all enjoy the clever window displays our new instructor, Miss Melton, and her classes assemble to demonstrate homemaking and good living.
Home nursing is taught by our school nurse, Mrs. Mason, to the senior girls in their spring semester. It is another valuable addition to their high school training, since it enhances the importance of the knowledge of first aid and the care of the sick.

1961 Homecoming Royalty
AlWood not only has its own president, but also a king and queen. King Dean Sullivan and Queen Linda Davison and their court ruled over the 1961 Homecoming. The juniors, F.H.A., Library Club, and the freshmen received skit honors. Our team was defeated, but our spirits were not--we rallied to make the dance following the game one of the most successful in many years.

Our President and His Cabinet
Our school government has many problems, but they are not as difficult or as numerous as the problems of our national government. This year as a new feature the members of the Class of 1951 were the honored guests of the Student Council sponsored homecoming activities. The Student Council helps with the sponsoring of our foreign exchange student, Dress-up Day, and Student Administration Day.
Our President honors the Queen with a gift from the Student Council.

Being a teacher is a demanding but rewarding job; many of us find this out on Student-Administration Day. Because the F.T.A. members are hopefully striving to become teachers, these problems seem small, and our F.T.A. members proceed toward their goal of teaching. Each year a special project is emphasized to help someone in our community.

Librarians Inspire Us to More Reading
George Sherrard and Richard Swanson set up an attractive library display window.
Books may be dull to some people, but our energetic library club keeps our library in the limelight with their eye-catching window displays and the promptness and efficiency with which they take care of library tasks.
Besides checking books in and out they must dust and straighten books on the shelves and do some filing. They make a special appeal to the student body during Library Week, when they try to entice reluctant people to read more books by daily announcements and descriptions of worthwhile books.

State and National Responsibilites
The chapter here is working on the national membership committee. Mary Lou Charlson was the delegate to the State Leadership Conference.
Local activities included sponsoring sock hops, the Christmas dance, Sadie Hawkins dance, Daddy-Date Night, and making hospital tray favors .
At its annual Christmas Dance, sponsored jointly by F.H.A. and F.F.A., Kathryn Litton was elected the F.F.A. Sweetheart, and Bob Carlson was elected the F.H.A. Heartthrob. Kathryn was presented an F.F.A. jacket, and Bob received an apron and a cookbook in honor of the occasion.
Extending their influence far beyond our school has become commonplace for our F.H.A. Kathryn Litton is the 1961-1962 Section 10 Vice President. Mary Lou Charlson is the 1962-1963 Section 10 First Vice President. Kathryn Litton, Donna Bodeen, and Miss Melton are working on a state historian committee.AlWood's F.F.A. sponsors many activities, one of which is the AlWood Calf Club. This is its story.
"Borrowing from the Bank" is a must for the first year calf-club member.
In the picture below are two freshman F.F.A. boys talking with Bank Cashier Kenneth Mecum, learning the experience of paying interest on borrowed money and that capital also costs money.
The calves were bought from a ranch in Southwestern Missouri and were shipped here for sorting into pens of four. The boys in the next picture are drawing lots to determine which pen of calves will be theirs to feed for the next eleven months.

We Who Love Music Are
Our chorus, which consists of 137 members, has fun working, singing, and performing. In the fall of the year we try to get back in the swing of things, and gradually we get our voices into condition. Throughout the year we are constantly rehearsing for some program. To climax the year's work, we go to Music Contest.
In the past years we have put on minstrel shows, and from the profit on these shows we have been able to purchase a grand piano.
A happy day for Mrs. Miller, our director, was the day the grand piano was delivered.

DIRECTOR: Don Riggle
Here at AlWood our band is enjoyed and looked up to by everyone. We rehearse three times a week, and from these rehearsals we ready ourselves for the different programs and concerts that we present.
We practice diligently for half-time football shows in the fall. During the winter we play at home basketball games. We preseni two concerts, and the climax of the year comes when we perform at Music Contest in the spring.
Each summer our land, with the aid of our loyal Band Parents Organization, sends several students to music camp at DuQuoin, Illinois. This is beneficial to the students and the band, and it is enjoyed by every student who attends.

66Whether Our Teams Win or Lose
Enthusiasm and good sportsmanship on the part of the fans are the important parts of our athletic program that are fostered by the AlWood Pep Club. Most of us think of the Pep Club only at the actual contests, but their interest in promoting a good cheering section must start much beyond the pep section we see and admire at the games.
In order to have well trained cheerleaders, they send them to Illinois Normal University to cheerleading camp each summer. For home basketball games the Pep Club plans and publishes programs; for the games away from home they sponsor student buses. Yearly the club sponsors an athletic banquet honoring athletes and cheerleaders.

AlWood, under our new coach, had an up and down season. We started strong, taking third in the Galva and Combe It tournaments. Although we lost the last four conference games, we finished with a 7-7 record.
In the state district tournament we won the first two games, but lost to Alexis in the finals.
The Junior Varsity had a very good season, completing a 10-4 conference and a 13-5 season record.
We will lose three starters through graduation, but will have a fine group of juniors and sophomores to take up where they are needed and bring continuing success to AlWood.

71Our editor is relieved
II est Fini!
Another year, another annual! But to me, this annual is very special. To those of us who are seniors, this annual provides lasting memories of our last year in school--our last football and basketball games, contest, the prom, the hurry and scurry from class to class, teachers, the school, the activities in which we took part, and the many friends we hope to keep through life.
With the help of pictures supplied by our new photographer, Mr. Piatt; our advisor, Mrs. Swanson; those who loaned pictures; and myself, we will be able to remember our friends from foreign countries . We will also remember how hard we tried to make this our best and most unforgettable year, and the anxieties during test weeks.
We on the annual staff will not forget the two weeks of snow, semester exams, pictures, and basketball tournament games preceding our third deadline.
We hope that you as underclassmen, will enjoy this annual as much as we have enjoyed putting it together for you.
