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 lighting for our Tilde Sam. to express the real spirit of Pago 111 Page 7Toi' Row: Richter.

Moore, Jacobs Orix history began way back in September, 1941, when we, then shy sophomores, entered the hallowed halls of learning, old Ames High. Juniors, next, we were becoming more a part in organized school activities. Our first class election resulted in the naming of Frances O'Xeil as president. Fret I (Joslin as vice-} resident, and Mary Jean Otopalik as secretary, while the treasurer was James Wellhouse. In addition to these officers, home- rooms sent Bol Schorv, Paul Sills, anti Owen Shadle as representa- tives to 1 lie Junior Executive 'oun- eil to help lead us through the year. The class play The ('harm School financed the Junior-Senior frolic. which that year, upsetting all pre- cedence was held in the high school gym. The frolic was conducted along circus lines with sideshows, pink lemonade, a fortune teller and all decorations, clowns included. President Fred (Joslin. Vice- president John Brouhard, Secre- tary Marilyn Forsyth and Treas- urer T. M. Moore led an older, more war minded class through their final year of high school. The Sen- ior Senate, which is composed of the class officers, senior home room presidents and one member elected in each home room from which there is no officer, this year includ- ed besides the above officers: Mary Jacob, Marjorie Aikman, Jean Jackson, Virginia Skinner. La- page 8Vann Diehl. Boh Richter, Joe Bush. Owen Shadle. Fred Holler, Don Dixson and Kenny Qnaife. 'The Senate was responsible I’m planning: graduation exercises, the senior picnie and was in charge of the play. ()ne of the high-lights of onr last, most spirited year was the annual mid-year dance, this year railed the ‘‘-Mid-Year Mop-Up," which was jived and jumped t« the close har- monies of “Conroy's Corn Cats.' An all-school election named as onr king and queen of the evening “Johnny the Janitor" Hall and “Maxie the Maid" Sutherland. Funds 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 tin Frying Fun. '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. ’haracters were portrayed by these members of the senior class: Bruce Weiser. Bill Ritts, Ruth Fitz. John Bmilliard. Alice Miller, Shirley Clark, Marilyn Forsyth, Mary Lou Dahl, Jack lliland. Henry Clark, Virgil Xewhouse, Elmer Lange. Advertising and production crews for Out of the Frying Fan deserved the class' thanks for the hard jobs they successfully per- formed. 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 hoys as Fritz Black, Joe Bush, Earl Rhoades. John Brouhard, Bill Bates, Don Dixson, Bob Kchory, Fred Ooslin, John F. Hall, Jim Morris, Ozzic Langlnnd, Bob W essel. John S. Hall and Kenny Qnaife. Senior members of the varsity basketball squad included John Brouhard, Owen Shadle, Bill Bates. Jim Morris, Kenny Qnaife, Fred (foslin and John F. Hall. Jim Morris and Kenny Mayo went out for tennis, while tracksters were Fritz Black, Bob Sehory. Fred Ooslin. Kenny Qnaife, John Brou- hard and T. M. Moore. As the war progressed, more and more seniors received “greetings’ from their draft boards, or enlisted in some branch of the armed forces. The Air Corps reserve was one of these favored by many boys. The Army-Xavy qualifying test for A-12 and V-.12 college programs also interested many. Some for- nici members of the class departed for service at the end of our junior yea r. 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.

The 77 girls and 68 boys chose Jack Fincliam as '44 proxy, llis able assistants included Art Mar- tin, vice-president: M a ry J ea n Bond, secretary; Mary Alice Riggs, financial authority of the junior cabinet. Other members of the Junior Executive (’ouncil were Mary Whitley. Marjorie Allen and Jane draff. The experience and wisdom that youth lacks wen fur- nished by Mrs. Flora Miller and Mr. Richard Trump, class spon- sors. “If you want a hair-raising, seat-gripping ride, buy your tickets early for 77 c (Host Train." Head- lines like this appeared in the AYw York Mirror and other noted papers, referring to lavish Broad- way productions of the mystery drama chosen as the class play. The play was presented March 17, with such dramatists as Bill Merrill, Xancilue Fisher, Mary J. Bond, Alyce Miller, Wayne Wy- more, Rosemary Moody, Homer dill. Bob Scvey, Jim Larson, Bob Van Voorhis and John AY illis. The publicity committee sent the populace of our fair city flocking to buy tickets put out by the busi- ness committee and the play was a success financially. Proceeds of the production, minus costs of props and other overhead, financed the magnificent promenade, the Junior-Senior Frolic. There was some discussion about the location and type of dance, but it was inevitable that it would be a great success. Triumph again visited the junior class in the form of an outstand- ing contribution to the Fourth War Loan. Juniors were credited with $1,005.( 5 worth of American vic- tory. Highest individual purchas- ing honors went to Roberta Star- buck. who loaned $375 to I'ncle Sam. Lyle Stoops, a former member of this class with a brilliant future in football, gave up such civilian privileges by becoming a l nited States Marine. L. Wayne Smith lost one of his best actors and a member of The (ihost 'Train cast when Valois Alderman left for the army. Valois aided in Ames High grid contests as a reserve back. Juniors Bud dibbs, Jim Buck, Art Martin and Jerry Galvin also enhanced the football season's average. Bud Gibbs, Jim Buck and Jerry Galvin received varsity awards for basketball. “Speed” Mitchell. Jim Buck and Ray Kincheloe replaced many a divot after chip shots com- ing on the greens of Homewood. One of Ames High’s most worthy sprinters proved to be the juniors own Bud Gibbs. In matters of muscles, manners and mentality the junior class held its head high and rushed on, leav- ing important history in its wake, to the 1945 senior year.

Young, principal of Ames High School, has earned a warm place in the hearts of all tin students. The “King" was tin man of tin hour when lie scored eight points in the basketball game between tin senior All-Stars and the Faculty Fund dors. Often seen mauling members of the local Fire Squad or stopping local belles, Mr. Young has proven himself a man of varied interests. A willing adviser, but also an able disciplinarian, Mr. Young is our respected and revered leader. oCeonard S t ecjei LEONARD a. Steger is not only superintendent of schools but also a leader in civic affairs. He is chairman of the Office of Civilian Defense and is sponsor of public forums and adult education classes. Through these channels the citizens of Ames have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and understanding of domestic and world affairs. Stanley Johnston. Sidney Mon- tague. Floyd Reeves and other si leakers have been brought to Ames by Air. Steger to speak in public forums before its citizens and in high school assemblies, giv- ing much food for thought. Pape 34■ H.IH.LIB1 I MEETIXG 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 tilings 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 who were willing to help out during tie shortage and a few new teachers kept these positions filled. In collaboration with the Pity Council, Student Council, and civic organizations the board planned to get a Student Recreation Center. With 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 high students. Regular meetings are held the second Monday of each month. 'The regular school board election was held in March. Heading the board were W. II. Meeker, president; F. I».

Council takes a greater part in carry- ing on the principles of student government and democracy in Ames High school. This body is composed of the presidents of the eighteen home rooms.

Added to its al- ready formidable list of activities, the (’ounciTs responsi- bility of seeing each student participates in the war effort one hundred per cent con- sumes a great deal of its time and effort. The organization is in charge of the annual Open House for parents. This year Council also aided in plans for the Student Recreation Center. Officers first and second semes- ters were T. M.

Page 37CL Closes BEFUDDLING the pupils with a maze of new courses. Ames High buckled clown to aid the war effort. Radio code supplied the students with a new mode of writing notes, and few prize operators attained the speed of twelve words per min- ute. Not to he satisfied with learn- ing how to use radios, the more versatile persons signed up for radio fundamentals, which involves the principles of construction. Mr. Ronald Easter, physics teacher, was drafted to teach the two radio courses. “Slip-sticks" became numerous as grief-stricken inmates applied themselves to Mr. Bernard Swed- en's sines, cosines, tangents, and cotangents. By far the most popular of the English courses proved to be Miss Mary McNally’s world literature. Smorgasbords satisfied the inner man, and occasional records served to divert one’s mind from the deep Berman essays. Seniors figuratively returned to junior high days as they reviewed fractions, square roots and the basic operations of mathematics.

Lawrence Simmering’s auto-me- chanics hoys delved deeper into the course this year than ever before, even without the aid of some car. Actual shop experience was em- phasized, as was thorough study of the regular text. The sophomores and plane geom- etry also saw a change in teacher, as Mrs. Harlan took over in the absence of Mrs. Sheesley.

UTD rZZING" i»ii}»iIs out of tin building in only 54 seconds, the Fire Squad this year eclipsed all former lire 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 fire, to have pupils outside be- fore you can light the second match to a hotfoot. Keeping in step with progress, although cautioning her against running in the ball, Ames High’s hall monitors innovated among other things a new system of posts for fire drills, a trial assembly drill, and the “Fireman’s Ball.” Tidying, up the corridors by polishing their badges frequently, setting wolf traps in West Hall, and picking up all gum as they paced their beats, the Fire Squad also attempted to discourage the use of the balls as social centers to walk about and congregate. Great credit should be given the members for the trying, and often rewardless job they bad to do. Flie organization changed spon- sors at the semester, shifting the job from Miss Edna Wilcox to Miss Harriett Beattie. In addition, two assistant sponsors helped this year. M r. ()lav Tiller and Miss Ruth -Mil- ler. Other administrative duties were carried on by Jerry Galvin, treasurer and assistant chief, and Frank Paine, chief.

Ames 21, Valley 0 'ashing in on three of six scoring opportunities, tin orange and black eleven smashed Valley High to run away with the season's opener. Racking up scores once in the sec- ond quarter and twice in the last, the outcome of the game was never in doubt. Ames 7, Roosevelt (Des Moines) 13 Playing a caliber of ball that be- lied the fact that it was an early season game, the Little Vclones and Roughriders put on a brilliant exhibition of football in which Ames' victory streak of 15 consecu- tive grid triumphs was ended. With Roosevelt scoring in the third quar- ter and both teams counting in the last, the lies Moines school's power proved too much for the local’s aerial assaults. Ames 2b, Newton 6 The Little Cyclones swept thru a small but scrappy Cardinal eleven to gain their first blood in the con- ference race. Sparked by the great game of Bob Schory, its halfback, tin locals pushed across the white line once in the second and third quarters and twice in the last. New- ton rang up their only score in the final stanza via the air. Ames 0, Marshalltown 26 Marshalltown’s powerful Bob- cat eleven pounded Ames to her worst defeat in several years. Cap- italizing on fumbles, the Bobcats scored once in the third quarter and three times in the last, having the contest well in hand most of the way. For the Little ('vclones the defensive play of Brouhard and Hixson and the ball-toting of Fritz Black stood out.

Later in the game Black made one of the most sensational tackles seen in these parts for quite a spell, run- ning down Cnuzan, Osky left end. from behind after a 45 yard dash. With Schory and Goslin leading the way, the locals' offensive drove across two more goals during the final period. On the line Don J)ix- son and Art Martin literally tore the Indians to shreds with one smashing tackle after another. Ames 42, Perry 0 Slamming into Perry with every thing but the water bucket, the Little Cyclones scored a half-dozen times in three quarters to show everybody concerned the power and speed of a first class football team. Led by the brilliant runs of backs Goslin and Schory, the line block- ing of Black and the rugged line work of Martin and Bush, the out- come was never disputed. Ames 55, Grinned 0 Whitewashing the Pioneers with a power-house offensive on ground and in the air, the Little Cyclones ran up one of the highest scores in the school's gridiron history. With everybody but the coach participat- ing in the mayhem, the domineer- ing orange and black eleven inter- cepted pass after pass to add to the general scoring excitement running through the local crowd. Standing out for Ames were Buck. Gibbs and Black in the backfield. and Brou- hard, Bates and Rhoades on the line. Ames 6, Boone 0 In one of those games you read about in books, the Little C yclones kept that little green jug in our trophy cabinet, and won undisput- ed possession of second place in the 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 t 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 Pixson and Fritz Black as co- captains for the 1943 season. Page 46mmmm snH i., i.t.i i r KJame Season THE Ames second team with eoacli Olav Tiller taking over the reins, went tlirongh a short four game schedule splitting 50 50 when the last whistle blew. Starting off the season the Little Cyclones downed Jefferson 0-0, only to come out on the wrong end of the score sheet to one Story ity first team, 12-0. Later the sopho- mores split a pair with Boone de- feating them 0-0 here and bowing to the Toreadors by the same score later op. Some of the potential varsity prospects gaining their first taste of high school competition were halfbacks Donald Downs, Tubby Ballard and (ieorge Duvall; fullback Rollaud Knight; linemen Ben Mason, Jack Marrs, Smith. Malcolm Schmidt, Max W ilhelm, John Fen ley and Duane Wilson. Many of these players will step into the shoes vacated by senior members of the varsity squad next year and their fans feel they will be up to that difficult task. Unfortunately, the second team games do not attract as many spec- tators as their play warrants, and in the future these events should hold a greater share of the spotlight in the athletic program of Ames High school.

Bates OASTING one of the finest squads set'll on tilt' local floor in six years, the Ames High Little C’yclones eagers went through their 15 game schedule with only three defeats, all of which were avenged later. 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 eagers adopted a do-or-die attitude on the court and swept through every con- ference doe 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, dim Morris, John Brouhard, Bill Bates, Ken Quaife, dim Buck, Fred Goslin. Bud 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. The individual scoring race was copped by dim Buck, junior, with Page 48l.UU.★ "Aco” Bates plows through opponents to try for a basket. ★ Bud Gibbs reaches for a tip-off. 152 points to his credit.

However, the experienced guidance of Coach Everett Ritland was lost to next year’s squad when he entered the Navy this spring.

Adding to their season's laurels was their victory over a favored Nevada quintet in the final of the County tournament for the first time since the sophomores have played this tournament. Shortage of gas prevented the second team from participating in several conference games and forc- ed them to tackle opponents nearer their own stamping ground. During the middle of the season the sophomores encountered two school opponents, the 5-F’s and the Munn Lumber team, and some from the city recreation league.

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 own 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, West Waterloo, Roosevelt of Des Moines and Hast Des Moines. Later on the netsters expected to participate in the district confer- ence and state meets, if conditions permit. Included in this season’s rostrum were two experienced seniors: Jim Morris, who won a letter in this sport previously, and Kenny Mayo. These boys were hard pressed by such contenders as juniors Jack Fine-ham, Raul Sjurson, Prank Lcchner.

Homer Gill, David Lantz, and others. However all was not quite such a rosy hue. The shortage of bounce- able golfballs and their substitution by reprocessed ones and some that had been hidden in the basement for the greater part of a decade, coupled with the somewhat publi- cized shortage of petrol, forced the boys to maintain a feeling of obli- vity to it all in order to cope with their opponents. Their somewhat hazy schedule included a duel match with Boone, and two invitation meets, plus the regular conference, district, and state meets.

I Aider 1 he direct ion of Rich- ard Day, music instructor, the fall mornings were spent practicing formations on the football field to he used between halves at football games. Initial letters of names of visiting teams and of Ames, plus many designs along the patriotic line were featured. With the help of Pep Club one half time period was spent in paying tribute to coaches now in the armed forces, and to the present coach. Winter months were spent in- doors rehearsing for three concerts given in the auditorium April 21. May 21, and May 25. Because 1' 7:45 a. m. rehearsals, band mem- bers usually slept through morning classes.

Also fea- tured was Jean Jackson, eelloist, who was soloist in Brook's “Kol Xedrie”. Included in the program were the “Rosamunde Overture” from the opera by Shuber and a novelty number, “In a Persian Market” by Ketelbv. 'There is never a dull moment in the organization, for the cornet section uses every interval for some snappy duets or contests between Owen Sliadle and Bob Comstock. John Brouhard is also a prized member due to the fact that lie ar- rives belatedly at each rehearsal. Composed of instrumental stu- dents from Central Junior High as well as the high school, the orches- tra is conducted by Richard Day.

In the fall, the books were rearranged in more convenient places. New hooks of fiction, travel, and science were added to the library from student suggestions. The most popular book was “Syrian Yankee” an autographed copy given to the library l y the author. Salom Rizk. Under the supervision of Miss Helen Holt, the librarian, and her assistant, Mrs. Eleanor Severson, the 27 members of the Library ('lub were responsible for keeping the library in order, arranging new material in the second-floor display case, checking the books in and out, “reading" the shelves, sorting books, and preparing books for cir- culation. Special meetings were held after school to learn how to catalog fiction books and to ac- quaint the members with the cor- rect way of running a library. Members also work in the library during study halls, keeping maga- zines and papers in order and help- ing students to find desired refer- ences. The social activities of the club differed from those of previous years. The different types of par- ties included a scavenger hunt, Christmas pot-luck, progressive supper, Valentine party, tea, pic- nic and others. Nancy Clapp was president; Jeanie Schreiber, vice- president and Bov Daugherty, sec- retary of this organization.

' I 111 !•] sadness of semester schol- astir averages was alleviated somewhat by the “Mid-Year Mop- Cp." 'Phe annual dance for all classes was held on January 19. in the “Hall of Intelligence In- dulgence” of Ames High. Conroy’s Corn Cats, an aggregation of high- ly skilled modern music masters, furnished the background, with lyrics by Ben Y. Darlington. High lights of the evening were character sketches of faculty mem- bers by students, and the presenta- tion of “Johnnie the Janitor," John Hall, and “Maxie the Maid," Maxine Sutherland. The two were picked by popular vote of the stu- dent body. The Student Council social com- mittee, headed by Roger Roberg, was by 11 o'clock responsible for one of Ames High's foremost mor- ale multipliers.

THE war was brought home to Ames High more than ever this year, as War Loan drives. Red Cross and salvage campaigns were supported by students already par- ticipating in victory classes. Boys’ and girls’ physical educa- tion «-lasses strove to keep students in good condition and ready for the armed services or other war work. Both senior boys and girls received physical examinations, and small- pox vaccinations were given. A citation from the United States Treasury Department rec- ognized the outstanding work of Ames High students in purchasing War Bonds and Stamps. Over $6,000 worth of shares in victory went to this school’s supporters of the Fourth War Loan. Regular classes in Ames High contained some newcomers this year; both old and new were on a war-time basis. Some of the fore- most victory classes were algebra, auto mechanics, chemistry, first aid, home nursing, physics, radio code, radio fundamentals and trig- onometry. Even adults were enrolled in classes for victory. Closely allied with the war effort on the home front were such courses as home nursing, industrial arts, refresher typing and shorthand.

Navy or Marines—this is a choice which must be made by modern high school boys. “Camp Dodge Kiddies'' is the name dubbed any and all Ames High future G.I.’s. This select group, by the local board, will in general report on or soon after June 1. either to the Old Federal Building if the applicant lias chosen the Navy, or ( amp Dodge if he is destined for the Army In- fantry. Many who do not wish Infantry training join some reserve branch of the service. One, seemingly the most popular, is the Army Air Corps Reserve, which has already claimed Bill Bates, Bob Campbell, Bob ( base, Henry Clark, Gordon Dowd, Don Dixson, Bud Eschbach, Paul Gillpatrick, Fred Goslin, Jim Holmes, Elmer Lange, Jim Morris, Bill McCormack, Paul Sills. Kenny Quaife and Bob Wessel. Men enlisted in the Army Air Corps Reserve will be called a few weeks after they reach 18. They spend five months preparing for air crew training at a college or uni- versity. Then, after classification as either pilot, navigator or bomb- ardier, they are entered on a course varying from 27 to 36 weeks of intensive training, climaxed by commissions and silver wings. Former Ames High students Dave Loomis, Irving Spratt and Howard Richardson transferred to Iowa State college this year, have entered the Navy College Program (Y-12) and have been assigned to various schools. Twenty or thirty local intellects ventured forth March 15 to take the qualifying tests for the ASTP (A-12) and Y-12 at Ag Assembly. Scores were announced around May 1. Those candidates chosen will be inducted and assigned schools soon afterwards. ASTP and Y-12 students will be entered at selected colleges where they will pursue a course of study determined by their own qualifica- tions and the needs of the armed forces. Some of the types of courses included are engineering, medicine, veterinary, chemistry, dentistry, aerology and chaplain. Courses vary in length from a year and a half for deck officers to five or six for medics. Those who couldn't wait for the draft and joined up spontaneously, often before they reached 18, in- clude for the Navy Earl Gibbs, Jim Oplieim, K. L.
