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-

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 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.

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-
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
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
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-
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.

Examines With Pride
HE Vocational Education program,
with Miss Hartsook as sponsor, was
divided into three sections. 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.

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.

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-
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.

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-
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-
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.

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
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

ple resulted in one of the highest box-

Aniong the other activities, the Coun-
cil niade plans for the J unior-Senior

reate and the Coinnienceinent services

HE first year i11 tl1e new l1igh sehool
necessitated inany changes i11 the
Fire Squad. First, beeause of the larger

of the junior and senior classes, and the
nuniber of sophoniores selected was o11e
more tllilll has been tl1e eustoin, bringing
the total nuniber to twenty. 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-
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. The iirst iire drill
of tl1e year einptied tl1e building i11 0110
minute and te11 seconds. 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. During tl1e year, pot-luck

REDIT for athletic successes goes to
the caliber of boys in A1nes High.
Ames places boys on conference and all-
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-

AMES13, NEVAD.A 0. Ames defeated its
first foe of the season, showing promise
of a strong defense.
AMES 6, NORTH EIIGH or Moines 0.
Ames snapped North High's three-year
Winning streak, relying on the defensive
play of the Whole team, with Ruggles,
Sheen, and Erickson stopping the ag-
gressive North running attack.
AMES 14, Nnwrron O. Ben Ross played
the star role as the Little Cyclones Won
their first conference ganie this year.
Ames 13, NIARSHALLTOXVN 14. Mar-
shalltown rolled up a fourteen point lead
in the first half. Stunned by the loss of
'Ben Ross, triple-threat half back whose
arm was fractured early in the first
quarter, Ames Was unable to threaten
for three periods. Then behind vicious
blocking, lVIorris and Bates rannned
across two touchdowns, but Bates' see-
ond conversion was blocked. Although
it was the iirst game lost since 1936,
there was victory in defeat, because of
the comeback staged in the iinal quarter.
.- , .
Aims 13, OsKALoos.-x 0. In the second
quarter Byrnes scored from the four
yard line. A pass into the end zone, Rug-
gles to Vifquain, clicked for another six
points. Ames' pass defense succeeded
in' holding down the Osky aerilalattaek,
with Shoen consistently knocking down
passes to Jack Feree, all-state end.
Aixnis 6, PEIIIRY 0. There was a great-
er difference between the two teams
than the score indicated, but Ames
lacked the scoring punch necessary to
turn consistent gains into touchdowns.
Aims 7, GRINNELL 0. Playing top
defensive ball, the Ames line stopped the
Pioneer running attack. Hub. Ruggles,
who gained 104 yards from scrimmage,
plunged from the 2-yard lineto score.
Aims 13, BKJCDNE O. Ames downed its
traditional rival and retained possession
of the green jug for the fourth consecu-
tive year. The play of underelassmen in
this game gave promise of another excel-
lent grid inachine in 1940. .

been called upon to ehoose home-

the student council. The iirst semester
they chose Ray Byrnes, Nieliey Lind-

Browne Otopalik were elected.
The members were equally divided be-
tween fornier Central and VVele.h stu-
dents and of the twelve, only two were
girls. If one should ask their classmates
what they associate with these students,
one would probably get some such re-

HIS year's Junior Class, numbere-
ing 219, offered to school life the J u-
nior-Senior Frolie and the annual Ju-
nior Class Play.
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.

NE of the two grea.test social events
of the school year is the Junior-
Senior Frolic. It is the annual dance
given by the Juniors for the Seniors.
The dance is financed by the profits of
the Junior Class play. This year's dance
plans were directed by Miss Hadish and
Miss Thutt, who were the Junior spon-
sors. They were assisted by the officers
of the class.
The dance this year was held on May
28 in Great Hall at the Memorial Union.
It featured the inusic of Tonnny Swanke
and his orchestra. Refreshments were
served and games were offered to those
who were foot weary. The dance was of
senii-formal type with all the newest
styles being displayed in both fellows'
and girls' attire. The grand march, an-
other of the Ames High traditions, was
