JOHN HARMS tl'l1I1C6 UAQ MULIWAOOA of ,!y0fL815 SAOOZ East Side New Surroundings HE shining modern cafeteria pro- vides warm, thrifty lunches for noon stayers. Complete with heating table, dish-Washer, refrigerator unit, and range units, the cafeteria has facili- ties to serve 130 people in 20 minutes, ac- cording to Mrs.. Annabelle Danskin, cafeteria manager. Everything from mashed potatoes to ham salad sand- wiches is served each noon to hungry students, as they discuss the day's events. Assisting Mrs. Danskin is Mrs. Grace Hunter, who manages the heating table during the noon hour. The high-ceilinged, quiet library is presided over by Miss Alice Thutt, Miss Eleanor McElyea, and library club members. Oak paneling and high book- cases add dignity to the atmosphere. Conference rooms, oak tables, and com- fortable chairs make the library a popu- lar place for reference work, reading, and consultation. Built-in trophy cases house the school 's collection of medals and athletic awards in the east lobby. Eye strain in the classrooms is at a minimum with venetian blinds curtaining the windows. An electric eye regulates lighting in the study hall. The auditorium, with its spacious lob- bies, comfortably upholstered seats, and acoustically treated walls and ceiling, is the high light of the new building. A massive switchboard backstage operates the 12 spotlights in the top of the audi- torium, and the smaller spots on the stage. The graceful beauty of the pros- cenium arch framing the stage is only one of the architectural triumphs in the auditorium. The Library The Auditorium Students Use New Equipment MES HIGH has one of the most complete high school auditorituns inthe country. It was not designed in a few minutes, but required hours ofre- search and planning by Superintendent Jordan Larson, Speech Director L. Wayne Smith, and the architects. The main iioor of the auditorium seats over 700, and the balcony almost 400, the combined seating capacity providing for an audience of 1,100. The seats themselves are an outstand- ing feature, the backs being finished with the highest grade of mohair, the seats of imitation leather with box springs. Every seat in the auditorium faces the rear center of the stage, so that all may see equally well. There are no beams from the tloor to support the bal- cony, thus eliminating all obstructions. Slightly curved walls of the acoustic stone seemingly bring the stage closer to the audience, and acoustic ceilings in- sure perfect hearing in all sections of the auditorium. The auditorium is provided with an excellent lighting system. Eliminating the use of footlights, twelve 1,000-watt spotlights, all on dimniers, are located in the ceiling above the stage. These can be set beforehand, and provide a great deal of variety in color effects. The switch board and curtain ropes are on a balcony, 10 feet above the stage, to allow more room for the stage crews and actors. A three-way telephone con- nects thc switchboard, projection booth and box office. Prof. W. H, Meeker, member for 29 years Dr. R. D. Feldman, president School Board Members See Progress NOW the comfort and convenience of the student is one of the vital factors in the new modern high school . . . then, in 1912 when the old building Wa.s built, this was not taken into con- sideration. The student 's general health is consid- ered in that the air is heated to the cor- rect temperature and the proper amount of moisture is circulated. Although thermostats have since been installed, this was not a feature of the former high school when it Was first constructed. Twenty-live years ago an auditorium such as ours wouldn't have appeared in a dream. Also unthought of were the green blackboards, an eye-saver, and the inter-communication system. To protect the eyes of students, a pho- to-electric cell turns the lights in the study hall on or off as they are needed. To further promote good lighting, all classrooms are equipped with semi-indi- rect lighting and venetian blinds. In the old building the lighting in some cases was insufficient. At a time when physical education wasn't even a part of the regular cur- riculum, the old gym, in which all bas- ketball games were played, provided room for only 100 people in the balcony. There were no seats and everyone had to lean over the edge of the balcony in order to view the game. According to the rules of the game then, the referee was required to announce the score at the half and at the end of the game. In contrast to this, the new gym has a seat- ing capacity of 1,700, including the new type of folding bleachers. Other fea- tures of the gym are the electric score- board and the acoustically treated fold- ing partition, electrically operated, which divides the gym into two separate entities. The two school buildings offer as great a contrast as do the old two-cylin- der, open door, phaeton type car and the modern, stream-lined, 1940 model. School Board Meets Frequently HE school board of Ames, which is the legislative body of the school sys- tem, determines the educational policies for the community i11 its meetings held on the second Monday of each month. During the building program of the new high school, the board met as often as twenty times a month, sometimes spend- ing eleven hours in session. Board meni- bers are Hiram Munn, treasurer, Frank Howell, secretary, N. J. Brintnall re- placed P. G. Robinson, who had com- pleted his third yearg Dr. R. D. Feld- man, president, and R. M. Vifquain, both in their ninth years, David Ed- wards, serving his eleventh year, and W. H. Meeker, who has given twenty- nine years. Superintendent J. L. Lar- son carries out its policies as an admin- istrator. Prof. Meeker is being honored this year for his twenty-nine years of service on the board. This gives him the dis- tinction of having served a longer term than any elected member of a school board in Iowa. Prof. Meeker was first elected to the school board in 1911. He has been reelected every third year and has been president of the board during the third year of each of his terms. He has been on the board during the build- ing or remodeling of all the present Ames schools. Because Prof. Meeker thinks only of educational value in school matters, he has been very helpful in planning the new building. Prof. Meeker might be considered, according to Supt. Larson, as a "liberal conserva- tive." He is to the school board what former Senator Borah was to the United States Congress. Supt. J. L. Larson, Mr. Dave Edwards, Dr. R. D. Feldman, Prof, W. H.

The first was a general introductory course designed to tell the seniors hovv and why to choose a vocation. A proiile chart was used to help each person decide for what vocation he is iitted. The second section consisted of a series ot vocational forums. Senior Forum Commit- tee selected subjects and secured speakers. The third section was the apprenticeship program, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. Those seniors who wished to do so Worked at their chosen occupation Cvvitliout payj that they might gain experience in that Work Which they intend to follow. Mr. D8l3.Sl1l11'L1tt, General Treasurer, at Work Executives Testing MES teachers keep in contact with state legislation con- cerning education by having a legislative committee. The pur- pose of this comniitteeis to dis- cuss vvays which the association can serve teachers and a means by which teachers can promote the cause of education through their state association. Some proposed ways are: higher standards for teachers, a minimum Wage law, certification of teachers, and a teachers annuity system. Miss Lelah Spatz, chairman of this committee, is a delegate to the State Teachers convention. I 1 .hu I Q 3- , 'I . I -ig ? ,- qf 'QV IFI . E K 1 . " ' '-' 'W' . W .

Wierson, Miss White, Leffler, Rey- nolcls Student Council HE Ames High Student Clouncil, which is a legislative body of repre- sentative students, is composed of the presidents from all of the eighteen homerooms. The five different committees organ- ized to care for the business under their jurisdiction were the Assembly, Social, Citizenship, Publicity, and Service. These committees are composed of Stu- dent Council members and also repre- sentatives from the three classes. The Social Committee took charge of all the dances and also helped with the successful open House held on Novem- ber 8t-h. The organizing of a welcom- ing committee for visitors in the new school, keeping bicycles in their proper places, and gathering material for next Ames High Handbook, were the tasks carried out by the Citizen 's Committee. The publicity group advertised school activities and co-operated with the local Chamber of Commerce on the finger printing project. During the school Page c'iyhtee11. year, the lost and found department and sales for unclaimed articles were under the management of the Service Com- mittee. The Student Council was again host for the animal State Leadership Confer- ence in April held at Iowa State College. This is one of the most important of the Council's projects for invitations must be sent out, good speakers secured, and housing accommodations, entertainment and meals must be arranged for the many visitors. Owen Leifler and Kenneth Donelson, presidents of the Student Council dur- ing the first and second semester respec- tively performed, among other duties. that of presiding during assemblies. YVesley Wfierson and Peggy Rushing were the organization 's vice presidents. Lynn Nichols and Mary Sather as secre- taries gave reports of what the council was doing over the public address sys- tem. J oe Reynolds was appointed treas- urer for all year. Top Rout R. Miller, E. Morris, Collins, Gilman, D. Wilkins. Douglass, Paulson Bottom Row: Hum- mel, Schlick, J. Ar- rasmitli, Caine, M1'. DeLaslnnutt, Sore- ghan, Rupe, E. Wal- lace Student Treasurers HE faculty feels that it is the duty of the school to provide experience in the earning, safe-keeping, and spend- ing of money. In keeping with this poli- cy, the iinances of all extra-curricular activities have been placed in the hands of fifteen student treasurers. Selected by election and appointment, this group includes the treasurers of the Student Council, Hi-Y, Girl Reserve, Dramatic Club, the instruinental and vo- cal music groups and various other or- ganizations. Responsible to a faculty member, Keith D6L21Sll11lLltl-, who is the general treasurer, these students handle an av- erage of EB10,000 a year for the organiza- tions which they represent. All the money for extra-curricular ac- tivities is kept in one bank account, and the various activities draw on this ac- count and deposit their receipts through the general treasurer. Duplicate cash books, showing every transaction, are kept for each activity by the general treasurer and the respective student treasurers. Witliclrawals are made in the form of checks written by the gen- eral treasurer. An organization may se- cure a check by presenting to him a req- uisition signed by the student treasurer. the activity 's sponsor, and the principal. Receipts are handled in a like manner. Largest volume of money on the gen- eral treasurer's books is in the form of the various athletic funds, since all gate receipts and expenditures for equip- ment are handled through him. During the past year Patty Soreghan and Ruth Miller have assisted Mr. De Lashmutt in the more functional phases of his Work. The group is not knit into a formal organization. Rather, each individual carries on in his own sphere, guided by his sponsor and the general treasurer. Meetings are held only when special in- structions are needed. Page nineteen Top Row: J.

Hein Senior Senate HE Senior Senate, the governing body of the Senior Class, is composed of oiicers elected from that class at large, their homeroom presidents, and a representative elected from each room. This group had charge of the many important activities Which make up that masterpiece in every senior 's high school life, HSenior lfVeek." This year, as last year, the peak of all the functions was the Senior Class pow-wow, lasting all day, held at the Y. M. C. A. camp near Boone. Leaving the school building at 8:30 a. in., the class was transported to the camp, practically "en masse," by buses. Besides eating the generous and appetizing supply of food, which would satisfy any hearty appetite, the group participated in informal games and dancing. Senior l7flvl"Zif3ft0S were pre- sented at 4:00, making a big hit with everyone. The group left the camp at 5 :00 p. ni. to return home. The Senate also helped select the an- Paye twenty nual senior class play, "'Tl1c Kind Lfztflyf' which iinanced t'Senior YVeek." It proved to he as great a success as any of those in the preceding years. Both the well-chosen cast and the large audience enjoyed it tremendously. Each senior was expected to sell tive play tickets. Ten cents from each ticket went toward his personal contribution toward Senior lVeek activities. For each ticket not sold, he personally contributed ten cents. Another duty of the Senate is to de- cide if there are to be any class colors or a class iiower. Both of these customs were dropped last year. Various other plans concerning the seniors were carried out, and they all helped to make this year a happy mem- ory. As president of the senior class, Hu- bert Ruggles presided over the Senate, with Dick Bliss as vice president, Har- riett Hein as secretary, and Dorothy Schlick as treasurer. Top Row: J. Arra- smith, M. Rice, J. Martin, G. Brown Bottom Roar: Firkins, . Miss Thutt, Miss Ha- i dish, Dudgeon N unior Executive Council AINING a place of importance for the first tiine was this group of hard working juniors. Each officer, except the treasurer, was chosen from nominees by popular ballot of the Junior Class. Bruce Firkins was elect- ed president, while Eileen Dudgeon and Mary Jane Rice were elected vice president and secretary, respectively. Jean Arrasinith received the position of treasurer. In order to have representa- tion from each homeroom not already represented, Grace Brown and John Martin were elected to the Council by their respective hoineroonis. Miss Ha- dish and Miss Thutt served as class sponsors. The iirst activity of the Council was to choose a class insignia. After a design of pearl on black onyx was chosen for the class ring, models were placed in the show case for display. Many juniors purchased from local jewelers the ever- popular class bracelet. A new feature, specially liked hy, the girls, was a lava- liere on a chain. 'Phe Junior Executive Council super- intended the business and advertising of the Junior Class play, The Nut Farm, presented February 19. Norina Baur and Patsy Shearer were ap- pointed business inanager and publicity nianager, respectively, with small coin- niittccs of the Council working with theni. The excellent Work of these peo- ple resulted in one of the highest box- oifice receipts for a class play at Ames High. Aniong the other activities, the Coun- cil niade plans for the J unior-Senior Frolic, Aines High 's ever successful seini-formal spring dance, held in the Meinorial Union, May 28. It was also the duty of this group to provide decoration for the Baccalau- reate and the Coinnienceinent services of the seniors. Page twenty-o'ne Top Row: Ron.

Another change was inade by selecting one girl from eaeh P. T. class to assist in getting tl1e P. T. elasses from the building. The third change was tl1e sponsorship. Since Miss Maekin, the first sponsor of tl1e Fire Squad, was no longer on tl1e teaeh- ing staif, this position was eapably filled by Miss Spatz. The first day of sehool showed the old n1e111bers at their posts in their eapacity as hall nionitors. This duty was contin- Przye twenty-two ned througliout tl1e year, and i11 addition tl1e squad kept students out of the build- ing until 8 :15 a. 111. Zllltl helped elear the building after sehool.

In View of this reeord tiine andthe good chances for ini- proveinent, the Fire Squad set its goal at forty-live seconds. This short tiine, however, has not quite been reached. Mum-h credit should go to tl1e squad for its efficient tire drills and tl1e work done i11 supervising the extensive hall systeni. Ralph Sills was the head of tl1e Fire Squad this year with Lloyd Mahone as his assistant.

Ames places boys on conference and all- state teams. Another reason forthe school 's victories is its coaches. Although letter Winners are lost each year, Kenneth 'Wells, Ames High's coach, and Ray Smalling, assistant coach, come back every year with Winning' teams. The coaches deserve considerable credit for the Winning' combinations. The third reason is the Ames Hi,9,'h spirit. Every boy competing in athletics has developed a will to Win that is hard to beat. Ames comes back to do the impossi- ble, and such victories have resulted from tl1e spirit of the Ames High team. The Extra Point Ames Takes the Tip NY boy who vvasn't on the varsity or second team bas- ketball could participate in intro- mural basketball. Each boy in in- tramural basketball represented his own homeroom. The captain of each homeroom automatically became an intramural manager. These managers met once a Week to appoint referees to discuss bas- ketball rules, and to settle dis- putes arising from games. There were as many teams competing with each other as there are home- rooms in tl1e school. Ray Small- ing headed this division of intra- murals.

Then behind vicious blocking, lVIorris and Bates rannned across two touchdowns, but Bates' see- ond conversion was blocked.

Their class play was a light comedy entitled The Nut Frzrm. Robert Morri- son and Betty Lou Knudson, the leads, had an excellent supporting east in Ruth Miller, Dick Haugen, Louise Brown, Dale Kroesen, Olin YVC-llhouse, Lynn Nichols, James Lynch, and Guy Rine- hart. The story of the play centers around the Barton family who move from Newark to Hollywood to buy a nut farm. There Helen Barton goes Holly- wood, deciding to become a movie star. Instead of using the money of her fiance to buy a farm for the family, she invests it in the production of a movie in which she stars. Stark drama becomes a screaming farce under Helen 's crude acting and the antics of Director Barton. Page seventy-three Firlcinsu I jirterbug ot the Junior class Top: C.
