ENERALLY known for the cheery
salutation, "Good morning," with
which he daily greets sleepy students
over the sound system, is Principal
Verne M. Young, affectionately known
as the "King," Often associated With
unheralded visits to various classrooms,
problem pupils who make almost daily
visits to his office and signing requisi-
tions for everything from athletic
equipment to typing paper, he has, in
reality, many more important duties,
which include determining the adminis-
trative and educational policies of the
OUNDING out his second year as
superintendent of the Ames public
school system, Leonard A. Steger firmly
established a reputation as a leader in
progressive education and civic proj-
ects through his sponsorship of the new
adult education program, occupational
courses and outstanding public forums.
AINTAINIXG high educational
standards despite rising costs and
supply shortages is no easy job in any
school system. Tl1e Ames Public Schools
were no exception, for, despite the rela-
tively small number of pupils, the war
brought many problems to be solved by
the Board of Education.
However, guided by president XV. H.
Meeker, a veteran of thirty-one years'
service to the school system, the board
was able to perform its regular func-
tions and to carry out emergency pro-
grams. Hiram Munn, well-known busi-
nessman, was chosen treasurer of the
board. Jovial David Edwardsg Dr. TV.
G. lvlurray, college professor, friendly
N. J. "Sandy" Brintnallg and Dr. O.
L. Thorburn, young eye, ear, nose and
throat specialist, were the other mem-
bers. The secretary, Frank B. Howell,
was appointed by the board, but was
not a meniber.
The Board of Education appro-
priated all money for the maintenance
of school property, for the purchase of
necessary supplies a11d materials a11d
for the salaries of the teaching and ad-
ministrative staffs. The group held
regular monthly meetings, and special
meetings were called as they were
The four standing committees into
which the board was divided were
Buildings and Grounds, Finance, Sup-
plies and Purchasing, and Teachers.
Each member serves as chairman of one
and as a member of another.

HE HEALTH Office's most out-
standing achievement of the year
was tl1e tuberculin testing program,
which was conducted on a voluntary
basis among high school students. Al--
though awaited with fear and trem-
bling, the "needle-sticking" proved to
be a relatively painless process, and no
students found their wounds to be mor-
Those showing positive reactions were
given low-cost chest X-rays to deter-
mine the presence and progress of the
disease. The purpose of the program
was to detect early symptoms of tuber-
culosis and thus safeguard both unsus-
pecting victims and classmates.
Dr. W. B. Armstrong, giving time
from his private practice to be the school
physician, and Mrs. Sadie Dempsey
supervised the unusually outstanding
program of making the young people of
Ames as physically lit as possible. Mrs.
Dempsey replaced Miss Henrietta Gron-
lid, who left January 1 after thirteen
years of service as Ames public school
nurse to fly over thirteen states as as-
sistant in the mid-area office of the
American Red Cross.
Following a precedent set in previous
years, more than 2,200 young people in
the first eight grades were given a
physical checkup, while all twelve
grades took time out from regular
schoolwork to have their molars in-
A constant bugbear to students was
the invariably forgotten rule requiring
all those who were absent because of ill-
ness for more than three successive days
to receive permission from Dr. Arm-
strong or Mrs. Dempsey in order to re-
turn to school.
To aid those who could not otherwise
aiord needed medica.l attention, the
health oiice purchased glasses and paid
for tonsil and dental work out of one of
its special funds.
'A' Although Dr. Arrnstrong
still looks skeptical, Mrs.
Dempsey writes out the ex-
cuse necessary to get Marilyn
back into class.

ITH national defense duties head-
ing an already imposing list of
projects, the Student Council undertook
an ambitious program of accomplish-
ments for the year.
Ames High's student governing body
sponsored the Victory Book Campaign,
which netted 1,500 books for the armed
forces, the sale of Defense Savings
Stamps in the school and high pressure
salesnianship for the Red Cross benefit
basketball game with Mason City.
The council was divided into six
standing committees for the more effi-
cient handling of business. In addition
to the council inembers, each class had
one representative on every committee.
Duties of the committees included plan-A
ning the midyear and matinee dances
and the open house, determining the eli-
gibility of students to receive awards,
arranging for assemblies, publicizing
school events and supervising the lost
Acting as host for the annual State
Leadership Conference held in April at
Iowa State College, the council sent out
invitations and arranged for visitors?
housing acconnnodations, entertain-

First semester officers were Earl
Feldman, Floyd Bender, Rosemary
Taylor, and Jerry Galligan. The sec-
ond semester group chose Bruce Wie1'-
son, Ed Carty, Harriet Breckenridge,
and Jean McClelland.
Pulling the strings for this student
legislature was adviser Miss Eva YVhitc.
URING tl1e past nine months, over
313,000, tl1e largest amount of
money taken in during any one year,
flowed safely in and out of Ames High 's
-coffers, thanks to tl1e efforts of the stu-

a student treasurer making the rounds
of those who must sign his requisition.
Not only did the rules require his own
insigniiicant name on the dotted line,
but to conform with Ames High 's elab-
orate system of checks and double
checks he also had to secure those of his
sponsor and Mr. Young. This accom-
plished, general treasurer Miss Mary
McNally made out a check for the
amount specified on the requisition,
after which the recipient was required
to initial it, one copy being kept by the
student treasurer and the other by
The student treasurer, somewhat

Y DOING practically everything
except pushing students out of thc
windows or throwing them down the
sta.irs, the Fire Squad came within one-
tenth of a second of its goal of sixty sec-
onds for ai fire drill, thus establishing a
new all time record.
These hall monitors, whose duties in
tl1e school roughly parallel those of
traffic cops in a city, devoted most of
their time during the year to eliminat-
ing confusion in the halls.
In line with the effort to prepare for
the possibility of air raids, this group
took on added responsibility of making
arrangements for just this kind of an

viting mornings of VVar Time, these

AY back in September, 1939, the
doors of Ames High swung open
to admit the new building's first group
of noisy, inipertinent sophomores. Lit-
tle noticed by upper classmen, but vast-
ly important to the newcomers, were
such landmarks as Browne Otopalik's
orange and black victory shoes, the un-
beaten sophomore basketball team, and
Ray Byrnes, "varsity man" and class
hero. The loss of Peggy Skerry and
Mary Lou YVright was balanced by the
addition of such now indispensable class
members as Phil Armstrong, Bonnie
Clausen, Dick Fye, Ginger Halstead
and Pat Hovde.
Juniors now, and beginning to take a
more prominent part in school activi-
ties, the group carried on its organized
work under the direction of the Junior
Executive Council, composed of Presi-
dent John Rice, Vice-president Jack
Pinney, Secretary Frances Kerekes,
Treasurer Herb Gilkey, and Ray Byrnes
and Dean Dixon. Tl1e council's year
was cliniaxed May 1 by the customary
prom held in honor of the seniors at the
Memorial Union. The funds so neces-
sary to the success of any social event
came .from the highly profitable junior
class play, 4'The Late Christopher
Bean." Lila Mae Hummel was the
heroine of the l1our when she mastered
the leading role in three days and gave

a flawless performance on opening
Other juniors held the spotlight for
a time. Ruth Midgorden won the local
Americanism essay contest, and Mary
Elizabeth Lush got honorable mention
in the national contest. Frances Friley
showed her domestic prowess when she
journeyed to Chicago to bake cherry
pies in another national competition.
Then came the biggest year of allg
they were seniors A-1. Being the "big-
sl1ots" gave tl1e1n dignity at last. This
time they were snapped into line by Phil
Armstrong, president, Lloyd Kester,
vice presidentg Ray Byrnes, secretaryg
and lVilma Geiger, treasurer.
Already there were those whose fame
had spread beyond the confines of the
school. Debaters Bob Dilts, lVilma Gei-
ger, David Lush and Lois Stewart re-
turned. from the finals of the state tour-
nament with a new title for a school al-
ready familiar with champion teams in
other fields. Replacing rationed sugar
with honey, Mary Elizabeth Lush
1'eigned as national "Cherry Pie
Queen" and labored for weeks to keep
up with the resulting deluge of fan mail.
For the first time tl1e Little Cyclone
football team having played all confer-
ence opponents finished the season unde-
feated and in possession of another title.
Again a conference title fell to the con-
quering basketball squad. The cagers
were prevented from annexing the su-
preme honor when Nevada. defeated
them in the sub-state tournament and
kept them from the finals.
The national emergency found Ames
High sponsoring the sale of defense
stamps and bonds. Each Thursday
morning pennies were collected from
generous students for the purchase of
a. bond. Five hundred dollars was do-
nated to the Red Cross ambulance fund
from the sale of tickets to the benefit
basketball game with Mason City.
Defense work claimed two of the most
important members of the facility when
Miss Lunsford, Pep Club sponsor a.nd
P. E. instructor, was called to duty in
Abilene, Texas, a11d Miss Gronlid,
watchful school nurse, joined the Red
Cross staff in St. Louis.
One of the highlights of every senior 's
career was "unlaXing" to the music of
the rejuvenated Ames High Swingsters
Cnow the Rhythm Clubl at the regular
matinee dances. The orchestra. has
grown to include nine members, six of
them seniors. For the mid-year dance
the Basket Ball, a king and queen were
chosen in an exciting all-school election.
The regal throne was shared by Ray
Byrnes and Dona Sauvaing Bob Allen
furnished the music.
As spring approached, the future
loomed larger on the horizon and ca-
reers became an important topic of dis-
cussion. Speeches by well-known voca-
tional authorities fea.tured the week set
aside for seniors to survey the problem
of choosing a life work. Most helpful
was the practical experience gained
during spring vacation when many
seniors worked without pay at local
business houses to get a foretaste of
those occupations which seemed inter-
esting to them.
And so at last one day in J une, with
a lingering backward glance at halls and
classrooms which could never quite lose
the imprint of 175 boisterous personali-
ties, a taller, soberer class of 1942 faced
a perilous, but challenging future.

JUNIOR is one Who has lost the
uncertainty of a scared sophomore,
but has 11ot yet attained the high degree
of sophistication represented by a se-
The class of '43, although handi-
capped from the girls' point of View by
a ratio of 101 girls to '78 boys, still had
the distinction of accomplishing more
than most of its predecessors.
Diving into politics for the first time,
the juniors gave Bob Peterson the title
of Commander-in-chief, Meg Quist the
vice presidency, a11d Jean McDonald
the secretary's post. Darlene Roberg
handled the finances. Other members
of the Junior Executive Council were
Mary Dodds, Don Griffen, Glenn Riggs,
Jim Sutherland and Paul Vance.
After adding generously to the gray
hairs of Sponsors Miss Helen Hadish
and Miss Fern Hartsook, the class came
through with flying colors to set a new
record by making more money from its
play than any other class in high school
Much credit was due to the fine Work
of the business committee, whose job it
was to dispose of tickets. They did.
The publicity committee generously of-
fered the citizens of Ames a chance to
get in on a good thing with advertising
in almost every conceivable place.
The play, 'tJ une Mad," proved
worthy of all this advance ballyhoo. Vir-
ginia Kulovv and Milton Potee, star
ticket salesmen with a record of 34
apiece, headed a Well-chosen cast in-
cluding Justine Brintnall, Ted Garfield,
John Harlan, Ted Hartman, Tom
Maney, Polly Pride, Ann Turner, Paul
Vance and Annabelle Vernon.
Ingloriously dirtying their hands and
k11ees backstage, the ineinbers of the
stage crew deserved more eredit than
they got. It was their job to move and
paint all scenery and to ring sirens and
play records when sueh sound effects
were ealled for.
Bringing further glory to the class
were Gloria Lauer and Barbara J ack-
son, whose inusieal talent gave them a
tie for a Julliard scholarship.
The warlike spirit of tl1e nation had
its repercussions in Ames High, when
disagreeinent over the location of the
Junior-Senior Frolie reached surpris-
ingly belligerent proportions. Although
the juniors overwheliningly favored the
new proposal to make the dance truly a
high school affair by holding it in the
sehool gym, conservative seniors voted
by a sn1all margin for the traditional
prom in Great Hall of the Memorial
Union and, as guests of honor, were al-
lowed to have their way.
A year of hard work, eliinaxed by the
prom May 7, left the juniors looking
forward to the day when, as lordly se-
niors, they, too, might have the privi-
lege of amusing themselves at the ex-
pense of a younger class.
t -k It's lucky Bernice isnlt scared oi
the dark, for being the drum major
at. night football games is no light
i' Ted may be awed by his proximi-
ty to Tommy Harmon, but Bus
looks as if he'd rather be that close
to a. good bed.
ir Wonder what Polly said to make
Ted look so sheepish in this scene
from the class play?
'k Tom seems to have incurred the
wrath of two beautiful ladies.

the list of Hi-Y hobby groups, proved
very popular among the school's hep
cats and rug cutters. Other hobby
groups which inet inonthly were Hunt-

the boys a chance to hear from experts.

men of rugged competition was a sched-
ule which listed such stiff encounters
as the state indoor meet at Iowa Cityg
the Valley Relays, the Iowa State
Teachers College Relays, the Drake Re-
lays, the Grinnell Interscholasticg the
conference meet, Where they attempted
to annex their fifth consecutive title,

new all-weather concrete courts. Ames
High 's racket wielders were confronted

might be their last season of active com-
petition for several years. Returning
senior lettermen John Rice and J im

the bulk of the orange and black hopes
into the 1942 court campaign, while
three juniors with some competitive ex-
perience, Don Illeman, Bruce Ross and
Bud Schliek, 311Cl sophomore J im Mor-
ris bolstered the squad in holding down
the remaining positions.
After a disastrous attempt to capture
the fall district title the Little Cyclones
engaged in the Iowa State Teachers
College Relays meet, the Central Iowa
Conference meet, the spring district
and state championships, and held at
series of dual meets with Roosevelt and

Girls' Athletic Association '
HE ARMY ? The Navy? The
Marine Corps? Miss Alvira Luns-
ford, beloved G. A. A. sponsor, decided
in favor of the first and joined the Unit-
ed States Army as director of the Rec-
reational Department of the station
hospital at Camp Barkeley, Abilene,
Texas. Although the sudden depart-
ure of Miss Lunsford left the girls
minus an active sponsor, they carried
on in the best G. A. A. tradition.
Founded for the express beneit of
high school girls, the main purpose of
the Girls, Athletic Association is to en-
able each individual to improve physi-
cally, mentally, morally and socially.
To obtain the privilege of paying her
membership dues, a girl must have at
least 100 points to her credit. The or-
ganization offers three awards, the
minor "A," which is awarded to mem-
bers securing a 500 point total, the
major "A," which requires 1,000 points,
and the coveted orange and black pillow
top, ,given for additional work in the
Association. Points must be earned in
five divisions-leadership, organized
activities, unorganized activities, skill
tests and health charts.
A hard fought volleyball encounter
between a determined junior-senior ma-
chine, captained by Ruth MacDonald,
a11d a slightly superior sophomore
team, whose members chose as their cap-
tain newcomer Maxine Sutherland, ush-
ered in G. A. A. activities for the year.
Ruth's team, sporting the slogan
"VVe,ll win if it kills us,', was "killed"
as strong team play a11d cooperation
pitted against them by the sophomore
outfit finally prevailed.

winning margin to the sophomoresg and
volleyball was shelved for the more
lively game of basketball.
'tOld man luckt' failed to cooperate
with the sophomores i11 their attempt to
taste again of victory in the basketball
tournament, as the junior team de-
stroyed their hopes.
Opposing the juniors in the tlnal
event was a confident senior team. How-
ever the upperelassinen were a shade
too confident, for the junior sextet, cap-
tained by Betty Byrnes, blasted its way
to a 10 to 0 victory, thus snaring the
1942 girl's basketball championship.
Largely responsible for the sensa-
tional outcome was the trio of outstand-
ing junior forwards, Donna Carr, Mary
YValker a11d Marilyn Griffith.
The new policy of intramural basket-
ball was an innovation enthusiastically
received by the high school girls.

LTHGUGH it is often the more
frivolous things about high school
that stay in the memories of Ames grad-
uates, all is not light and airy in the
elassroom. From their first day as
sophomores to their last as seniors, most
students realized that they could take
advantage of their opportunities o11ly by
hard work. Although a eertain amount
of the omnipresent 'CI don lt care" atti-
tude was evident, the general feeling in
most elasses was one of putting forth ef-
fort. Students were fortunate however
to be studying in a progressive school
where teachers made a special effort to
make classes interesting as well as in-
How to lose ten thousand dollars in
less than two months is among the easier
things mastered by economies students.
Given imaginary money by Miss OX-
borrow, the students invested it in
stocks and bonds. By daily study of the
market reports, they bought and sold,
but paid no brokers' fees. A few class
members made money, but most of them
lost quite heavily.
Miss Hadish, alias Mlle. Hadish, has
now added another alias, Senorita. Ha-
ish, to her list. Because of the good
neighbor policy and the war in Europe,

Holding hands, however much
frowned upon in other parts of the
building, is not taboo in Mr. I1il1'11lS,S

this may seein, it is really quite a thrill
to feel the eleetrie charge from a Ley-

even be called a shocking experience.
If the women take over the world
completely instead of just eonversation-
ally, two groups of Ames High students
will be prepared. Able to do11 aprons
and ruin good food with the best of
eooks are boy's home economies stu-
dents. Not only do they master the eul-
inary arts, but they also learn how to
buy their own clothing.
Also prepared will be those who took
girl's industrial arts. lVhile learning
how to drive a nail, saw wood and the
surest way of breaking a. finger nail
while doing it, the girls turn out lamps,
bread boards, metal plates and numer-
ous other artieles. However, it's far
