this is the SPIRIT
of Ames High, I decided that
no better Words could be found
to express the real spirit of
Ames High than those of our
own Loyalty Song. Today
these thoughts express loyalty
not only to our school, but to
our country. I dedicate this
1944 SPIRIT to the alumni and
teachers now in the Armed
Forces and to those students
and teachers Who soon Will
be fighting for our

UR history began way back
in September, 1941, when We,
then shy sophoinores, entered the
hallowed halls of learning, old
J uniors, next, we were becoming
inore a part in organized school
activities. Our iirst class election
resulted in the naming of Frances
O'Neil as president, Fred Goslin
as vice-president, and Mary Jean
Otopalik as secretary, while the
treasurer was J anies Vlfellhouse.
In addition to these officers, hoine-
rooins sent Bob Sehory, Paul Sills,
and Gwen Shadle as representa-
tives to the Junior Executive Coun-
cil to help lead us through the year.
The class play T110 Clzurm School
financed the Junior-Senior frolic,
which that year, upsetting all pre-
cedence was held in the high school
ggyin. The frolic was conducted
along circus lines with sideshows,
pink leinonade, a fortune teller and
all decorations, clowns included.
President Fred Groslin, Vice--
president John Brouhard, Secre-
tary Marilyn Forsyth and Treas-
urer T. M. Moore led an older, more
war ininded class through their
iinal year of high school. The Sen-
ior Senate, which is composed of
the class officers, senior lioine room
presidents and one nieinber elected
in each hoine room froni which
there is no oificer, this year includ-
ed besides the above officers: Mary
J acob, Marjorie Aikinan, Jean
Jackson, Virginia Skinner, La-
Vaun Diehl, Bob Richter, Joe
Bush, Owen Shadle, Fred Holler,
Don Dixson a11d Kenny Quaife.
The Senate was responsible -for
planning graduation exercises, the
senior picnic and was i11 charge of
One of the high-lights of our last,
most spirited year was the annual
mid-year dance, this year called the
'tMid-Year Mop-Up," which was
jived and jumped to the close har--
monies of "Oonroy's Corn Oatsf'
An all-school election named as our
king, and queen of the evening
"Johnny the Janitor" Hall and
"MaXie the Maid" Sutherland.
Fu11ds for the senior picnic, the
most enjoyable climax to a senior
week crowded with various activi-
ties, were provided by the class
play, Out of the Fry1Tw,g Pawn. This
comedy was the lively story of three
boys and three girls who, for finan-
cial reasons, decided to share one
apartment. The six were hopeful
young actors and actresses, stuggl-
ing for recognition. The bewilder-
ment of their landlady, who was
never sure whether they were just
talking or quoting from a play,
added to the general merriment.
Characters were portrayed by these
members of the senior class:
Bruce VVeiser, Bill Ritts, Ruth
Fitz, J ohn Brouhard, Alice Miller,
Shirley Clark, Marilyn Forsyth,
Mary Lou Dahl, Jack Hiland,
Henry Clark, Virgil Newhouse,
Advertising and production
crews for Out of the Frying Pan
deserved the class' thanks for the
hard jobs they successfully per-
The success of this year's ath-
letic teams has been due largely to
the excellent playing and sports-
manship of senior members. Out-
standing in football was the work
of such senior boys as Fritz Black,
Joe Bush, Earl Rhoades, John
Brouhard, Bill Bates, Don Dixson,
Bob Schory, Fred Goslin, John F.
Hall, Jim Morris, Ozzie Langland,
Bob lVessel, John S. Hall and
Senior members of the varsity
basketba.ll squad included John
Brouhard, Owen Shadle, Bill
Bates, Jim Morris, Kenny Quaife,
Fred Goslin and John F. Hall. Jim
Morris and Kenny Mayo went out
for tennis, while tracksters were
Fritz Black, Bob Schory, Fred
Goslin, Kenny Quaife, John Brou-
hard and T. M. Moore.
As the war progressed, more and
more seniors received 'tgreetingsw
from their draft boards, or enlisted
in some branch of the armed forces.
The Air Oorps reserve was one of
these favored by many boys. The
Army-Navy qualifying test for
A-12 and V-12 college programs
also interested many. Some for-
mer members of the class departed
for service at the end of our junior
As our last year came to a close,
we looked soberly forward to the
winning of the peace, and prepared
to take our place in the better
world to come.

papers, referring to lavish Broad-

drama chosen as the class play.
The play was presented March
17, with such dramatists as Bill
Merrill, Nancilue Fisher, Mary J.
Bond, Alyce Miller, VVayne Wy-
more, Rosemary Moody, Homer

would be a great success.

In matters of muscles, manners
and mentality the junior class held

EETING problems created
- by the war and its results,
the school board aided students of
the nine Ames schools to meet these
problems squarely. Despite gov-
ernment regulations on supplies
and lack of transportation, mem-
bers were able to keep those who
cooperated well equipped.
Supplies were not the only things
that were lacking. Personnel
changes created many problems.
The armed forces and need of
teachers in higher paid positions
created many vacancies. However,
the aid of Ames citizens wl1o were
willing to help out during the
shortage and a few new teachers
kept these positions filled.
In collaboration with the City
Council, Student Council, and civic
mee megf .gtdoog
organizations the board planned to
get a Student Recreation Center.
lVith student cooperation, it was
thought possible that such a center
might be opened next year. This
year, teen-age dances were pro-
vided for high school and junior

tl1e Fire Squad this year eclipsed
all former tire drill records by at
least six seconds. Only through ex-
ceptional teamwork was this record
achieved, looking over past rec-
ords, future members hope in case
of iire, to have pupils outside be-
fore you can light the second match
to a hotfoot.
Keeping in step with progress,
although eautioning her against
running in the hall, Ames High's
hall monitors innovated among
other things a new system of posts
for tire drills, a trial assembly drill,
and the "Firemanls Ball."
Tidying up the corridors by
polishing their badges frequently,
setting Wolf traps in VVest Hall,
and picking up all gum as they
paced their beats, the Fire Squad
also attempted to discourage the
use of the halls as social centers to
walk about and congregate. Great
credit should be given the members
for the trying, and often rewardless
job they had to do.
The organization changed spon-
sors at the semester, shifting the
job from Miss Edna lVilcox to Miss
Harriett Beattie. In addition, two
assistant sponsors helped this year,
Mr. Olav Tiller and Miss Ruth Mil-
ler. Other administrative duties
were carried on by Jerry Galvin,
treasurer and assistant chief, and
Frank Paine, chief. Helping out
in pinches was the only retired sen-
ior member, Bill Rood, who was the

In one of those games you read
about in books, the Little Cyclones
kept that little green jug in our

conference standings by whipping
the Toreadors on their own field.
However, only a last minute goal
line stand by as determined a ball
club as you ever saw, saved the con-
test from falling in the other direc-
tion. Never was more vicious tack-
ling, more driving plunges, nor
more determined play ever seen in
years of Boone-Ames contests. The
only scoring was done by Fritz
Black on an end-round play late in
the first period. For Boone Bob
Anderson was the whole show,
plunging time after time into the
rugged Ames line in a vain attempt
to tally. Followed over by a good
share of our local citizens, the Lit-
tle Cyclones received many hard
earned praises for their gallant
play. Team members elected Don
Dixson and Fritz Black as co-
captains for the 1943 season.

OASTING o11e of the finest
squads seen on the local Hoor
in six years, the Ames High Little
Cyclones cagers went through their
15 game schedule with only three
defeats, all of which were avenged
Combining a fast break offensive
at the first of the year, which is
without precedent in Ames High
school, with a tight zone defense,
the orange and black quintet went
through their first round of con-
ference competition playing a rath-
er inconsistent brand of basketball,
losing to Marshalltown in an over-
time, dropping a close one with
Newton, and losing a decision to
Boone. Coming into the second
round of play the local cagers
adopted a do-or-die attitude on the
court and swept through every con-
ference Joe with as classy a ball
club as there was in the district.
Leading the team to the runner-
up position in the Central Iowa
Conference were nine major letter
winners, Owen Shadle, Jim Morris,
John Brouhard, Bill Bates, Ken
Quaife, Jim Buck, Fred Goslin,
Rnd Gibbs and Jerry Galvin.
In the middle of the season the
orange and black quintet was in-
vited to play an exhibition game
with Fort Dodge at the coaches'
convention. Other non-conference
opponents were Nevada, Perry and
North of Des Moines.

shows promise for next year's

was lost to next year's squad when

fold, and with a questionable
schedule, Ames High netsters start-
ed their campaign with an air of
u n c e rt a in t y. Nevertheless, the
racketeers maintained confidence
in their ability to knock the ball
around with the best of them.
One of the greatest worries con-
fronting the group was the Well
known shortage of tennis balls
which forced most of the boys to
use their OWII during practices.
Their dubious schedule increased
the fervor of competition between
the team members, resulting in
many good matches and many a
pair of sore feet. Despite the un-
certainty of "where and when,"
probable opponents included
Boone, lVest lVaterloo, Roosevelt
of Des Moines and East Des Moines.

participate in the district confer-
ence and state meets, if conditions

ITH church programs ar-
ranged early in the season,
and sacred music occupying a more
prominent place than in previous
years, Mixed Chorus members, ably
directed by Miss Edna Bower, en-
countered a. busy schedule this year.
Fifty-three members comprised
Chorus first semester and ten ap-
prentices were added in January.
Because of the lack of robes a com-
petitive plan among students for
public performances was initiated.
Since many former Chorus stu-
dents are now found on the battle
fronts and others in the camps and
based within the U. S., it became a
frequent occurence for uniformed
members to appear during Chorus
period to sing again the perennial
favorites of the organization.
Highlights of first semester were
the Christmas pageant, the musical
background being supplied by
Chorus and soloists from the group,
and the annual reunion held for
Chorus members of past years.

of a photographer. This was reme-
died by switching feature editor
T. M. Moore to the C2l1ll61'31112l11,S
job and adding Bob Norton to the
staff as assistant. More troubles
followed. Shortages of film and
Hash-bulbs had to be reckoned With.
However, all troubles pictured
above cannot be credited to the
ANY, many years ago, when
the haughty seniors of today
were mere babes Cwere?D, people
had film and cameras, like we don 't.

But this year other things are more important and our efforts are going toward
doing a good job on the assignments which our government says will bring about
a quicker victory.
