this is the Spirit
of Ames High, I decided that
no better words could be found
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 lighting for our
to express the real spirit of

Orix history began way back
in September, 1941, when we,
then shy sophomores, entered the
hallowed halls of learning, old
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
()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,
Advertising and production
crews for Out of the Frying Fan
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 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
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
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.

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.

Council, Student Council, and civic
organizations the board planned to
get a Student Recreation Center.

might be opened next year. 'This

fore you can light the second match

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

exhibition of football in which

tive grid triumphs was ended. With
Roosevelt scoring in the third quar-
ter and both teams counting in the

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-

worst defeat in several years. Cap-

scored once in the third quarter and
three times in the last, having the
contest well in hand most of the

about in books, the Little C yclones
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
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.

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

The outstanding work of junior
members of the varsity squad
shows promise for next year’s
team. However, the experienced
guidance of Coach Everett Ritland
was lost to next year’s squad when
he entered the Navy this spring.
In tournament play, the Little
Cyclones defeated Nevada to ad-
vance to district play only to lose
to their conference tie Joe, Mar-
shalltown, in the semi-final round.

uncertainty. Nevertheless, the
racketeers maintained confidence
in their ability to knock the ball

One of the greatest worries con-

known shortage of tennis balls
which forced most of the boys to
use their own during practices.

tery comedy The (i host Train,
by Arnold Ridley. Passengers of a
train are stranded in a lonely sta-
tion due to a strange disaster to
their conveyance. As the mystery
unfolds, it is discovered that the
train was stopped by Teddic Dea-
kin, a Scotland Yard detective, who
is searching for members of a ring
which is suspected of smuggling
narcotics. These juniors composed
the cast: Teddie Deakin, Bill Mer-
rill; Julia Price, Mary Jean Bond;
Miss Bourne, Xancilue Fisher:
Elsie Winthrop, Rosemary Moody;
Richard Winthrop, her husband,
Homer Gill; Peggy Murdock.
Alyce Miller: Charles, her hus-
band, Wayne Wymore; Mr. Price,

TIIE year 1943-'44 introduced
several changes in the Ames
High school library. 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
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-
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.

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-
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.
