Our superintendent is complet-
ing his second year as head of the
Ames public schools. He is active
in civic affairs, as president of tin
Ames Rotary Club, member of the
playground commission. Red Cross
Board and ('amp Fire Council.
His job is that of coordinating the
activities of the schools, and furn-
ishing leadership in planning the
further development of its educa-
tional facilities and program.
HE Class of 1946 is standing
on the threshold of a new era.
The second world war which cloud-
ed a large part of your high school
career is over; the atomic age is
born; and hope for world security
tills the air. Graduation time finds
you emerging into a future bright
with possibilities for men and
women of character, of initiative
and of talent.
The frontiers you face are of the
mind and soul rather than of the
physical. Our geographical fron-
tiers are gone but the frontiers of
scientific achievement and of social
and moral conduct at the world
level offer great opportunities for
further exploration. Leadership in
these areas will require trained
minds and strength of character.
To that end we hope that your
education at Ames High School
will prove valuable.
As you seek new goals, we trust
that our school motto, “Ames High
Aims High," will continue to be a
guide and inspiration.

7 MKS High School has again
conehuled a successful year
—a year of many worthwhile
achievements and a year which has
brought to both students and fac-
ulty that sense of satisfaction and
happiness which comes with a job
In many ways this first post-
war year has been particularly
difficult. Many adjustments and
changes were necessary; neverthe-
less, success has resulted due in
large measure to the magnificent
spirit of work, patience and co-
operation manifested by students
and faculty alike.
We salute the ( lass of 1946
which has furnished the high school
with so many talented and inspira-
tional leaders who have worked
both efficiently and effectively.
Truly, those of the lass of
1946 have etched forever on the
records of the school and in the
memories of those who knew them
best, their fundamental belief,
“Arnes Hi Aims High.'
Happily for Ames High. Prin-
cipal Herbert Adams considers
counselling students his most im-
portant function, and the students
who have had his help in solving
some of their problems testify to
his ability. Mr. Adams’ hobbies
are reading and outdoor sports,
particularly golf, hunting, and fish-
ing. Mrs. Adams, ('buck, Steve

THE Ames Public Schools arc
served by a board of five mem-
bers elected at large from the
school district at a general school
election held in March. Each
member is usually elected for a
term of three years, and the terms
are staggered so there will always
be some experienced members on
the board. The treasurer is elect-
ed every two years, and a secretary
is appointed by the board for each
The Hoard of Education is re-
sponsible for the educational pro-
gram of 2,242 students in nine
public schools and the proper ad-
ministration of a financial budget
of $324,280. They also appoint
102 teachers and supervisors.
Problems faced by the Hoard
are those brought on by the after-
math of war. Staff members on
“military leaves" must be rein-
stated and replacements for “dur-
ation teachers” must be met.
Another project of the Board of
Education this year has been a
study of possible future needs in
the physical plant of the Ames
schools to keep pace with popu-
Regular meetings are held on
the second Monday of each month.
Officers of the board are W. i.
Murray, president; Frank H. How-
ell, secretary; II. A. Munn. treas-
urer; and Marvin T. Nodland,
superintendent of schools. Other
members of the board are Frank

nations for 162 sophomores
were part of the modern physical
fitness program eondueted by the
Ames High School. Dr. Kenneth
Piercv, city school physician,
assisted hy Miss Eva Lindgren,
R.X., examined the students and
imported any abnormal conditions
to pupils and parents. On the
whole, the sophomores were found
to be healthy as only 30 received
recommendations for further med-
ical attention. Most of these cor-
rections have been made now.
This year every school child in
Ames was given an opportunity
for a Schick test to detect the de-
gree of immunity to diphtheria
among the students. Approxi-
mately 66 percent of the total en-
rollment took the test and 27 per-
cent of those taking it were found
to be susceptible to the disease.
These students were given an

all the many and varied kinds of
activities going: on there.
Keeping cheek, twice daily, on
471 students and 33 faculty mem-
bers is only a beginning. Prepa-
ration of daily bulletins for the
teachers, weekly calendars and
menus for the cafeteria are all in
a week's work, too.
Then, there is the checking of
materials for the teachers, putting
out supplies, sending out report
cards, giving official approval to
all passes, approving all excuses
for absence or tardies and super-
vising the office training of ad-
vanced commercial students.
Responsibilities of these girls
include the delivering of passes
and memoranda to all teachers,
taking telephone calls and gather-
ing up attendance slips.
This office also keeps all sorts
of statistical records such as per-
centages of absences and tardies
every six weeks.
Those in charge of this office
must lie versatile and efficient
since they are receptionists, coun-
sellors and secretaries. Those hold-
ing the post this year have been
Mrs. Erma Slaichert, Mrs. Mary
Turner and Mrs. Margie Berglund.
All have fulfilled their jobs as
counsellors and secretaries and
have been popular among students.

Hay Cunningham, general secre-

The general program included

morning and forums in the after
noon and at night. The forums in-

THE second year in high school
proved even more successful
than the first for the Junior Red
Cross Council. Composed of one
member popularly elected from
each homeroom in high school, the
council works hand-in-hand with
the Red Cross in Ames.
The first project of the year was
the roll call, in which every mem-
ber of high school pledged some
contribution to the Junior Red
Cross. One hundred per cent this
year, the council topped their goal
with a collection of over $.114.
Before Christmas, the home-
rooms packed Christmas boxes to
be sent overseas by the Red Cross.
These were sent to a locality in
Belgium from which Ames High
received several thank-you notes
written in French.
Some of the council members as-
sisted at the tea in honor of Miss
Ann (ioplerud, former teacher in
Ames schools, who had just return-
ed from overseas where she enter-
tained the armed services. She
presented a program in the audit-
orium to open the Red Cross drive
The last project of the Junior
Red Cross Council was a scrap-
book, the idea of which was form-
ed last year. The book contained
information of the school, the com-
munity, the state and the nation.
Pictures of interest were included
in this book. Plans were made to
send it to the same locality in Bel-
gium where the Christmas pack-
age's were sent.

sored the council.

THE voice of the student body
is heard through the Student
Presidents of the eighteen home-
rooms compose this council, so
personnel changes each semester.
One project undertaken this year
was the purchase of a plaque in
memory of Ames High boys who
lost their lives in World War II.
The finished plaque, of solid bronze,
twenty by thirty inches, is to hang
on the south wall of east hall. Stu-
dents contributed generously to
make the campaign for raising the
necessary $275 a success.
One other important project
undertaken by the Student Council
this year was the revision of the
handbook given t all sophomores.
Our Student Council maintained
Open House sponsorship this year
with an equally successful result.
Our homeroom organization is
the basis of our successful student
governing system. It has func-
tioned for nearly two decades. In
the alloted time each morning, the
pupils are encouraged to discuss
student affairs. The Ames High
Student Council is an example of
democracy at work.

HIGH commendation is de-
served by our hard working
group of student treasurers. In
cooperation with Miss Mary Mc-
Nally, general treasurer and her
assistant, Alita Wunderle, they
have again proven the resource-
fulness of the student body. Har-
riet, the largest single enterprise
undertaken this year, was financed
entirely by this group of budget
wizards. A specific budget was
allowed the production. Checks
had to be signed, countersigned,
and approved for costumes and
property. Books had to be bal-
anced. Much of this was done by
capable Alita Wunderle.
Our financial accounting system
is simple, with money for all activ-
ities in a general checking account.
There is a dual benefit from this;
all activities gain in case of a de-
ficit in some department and there
is more accuracy in accounting.
Another good point is the three-
way check system in writing
requisitions. After the student
has signed them, the sponsor of
that organization attaches his sig-
nature. As a final check, Prin-
cipal Adams signs it. The requi-
sitions then go to Miss McNally,
who writes the checks. This sys-
tem works for the benefit of every-

In addition to conducting fire
drills, the twelve senior, fifteen
junior and twelve sophomore mem-

for eliminating confusion in the
halls. The halls were supervised
each day from 8:30 to 8:45 and
from 12:45 to 1:00 by sophomore
and junior members taking their
turns at this duty every other
week. Senior members had
regular hall duty but did
easionally act as substitutes.
Nominations for lire squad mem-
bers are made by the junior high
school principals. Members are
chosen from these nominations by
the entire fire squad membership.
Fire squad members held a meet-
ing every Thursday noon to discuss
current problems with their spon-
sor, Miss Ruth Miller.

erclaidmen' I 'II I S was a banner year for
the eleventli grade of 1945-46
at the beginning of the atomic age.
One of the first events of the year
was the Ili-Y junior fireside at
Lynn Fuhrer Lodge. As usual,
not many had thought to bring
flashlights, so the gauntlet of ruts,
gully-edged twists in the path, and
brushes with ambushing early-
comers had to be run in darkness.
Still, it was worth bearing the pit-
falls of the trip to hear Mr. W illis'
humorous talk of pitfalls of a more
abstract sense—the shortcomings
There were some projects under
the capable direction of Miss Edna
Williams and assisted by Hob Mc-
Farland, Phyllis Eschbach, Mary
McCormick. Lyla Day, Jean Jones.
Bobby I Ionsinger and Shirley Car-
ter. One, with Tod Schulz as its
chairman, was the junior class
waste paper pick-up. The second,
the Hard Times Party, held in the
study ball, ushered in Hallowe'en
with the customary spooks, crepe
paper, and burying teachers in
At the beginning of the second
semester, the effect of Mr. Frank
Brandt’s excellent direction was
displayed in the junior class
comedy play. Pe w Is All, with its
setting a tidy Pennsylvania Dutch
kitchen. The cast included Nor-
man Jackson as a dictotorial
father, Margaret Fowler. Frank
Malden and Josephine McCann as
his subservient family, Lyla Day
as a gossipy neighbor and Bob
Walker as the state trooper. The

Returning to Ames High to en-

The last and most important so-

was the Junior-Senior Frolic ar-
ranged by the juniors for the grad-
uates. Because a movie was in-
cluded besides dancing as enter-
tainment. the stag line probably
was not as long this year as for-
The gymnasium was bedecked
with largo silhouettes depicting the
twelve months in proper order and
grouped with the proper seasons.
An extra-special silhouette fading
in and out as it revolved above
the orchestra outlined a dancing
couple. From the rafters hung a
moon and stars.
In general, this year was not so
much different from any other
junior year. Neither the war nor
the war’s end had changed the
fundamental class spirit which will
continue as long as there is an
Ames 11 igli. The juniors are ready
to step into the places left for
them by the class of ’46.

The 194(j sophomore class is
reputed to have more jalopies even
than pre-war sophomore classes.
Most famous is Hud Ross’s, which
suffered through eight flat tires on
the way home from Des Moines
after getting repair parts. Van
Iloller had the other famous one.
It was way late in spring before
he had to ride the bus home from
I'ot t y’ ourTHIS year’s sophomore girls
are braver than ever before.
Subjected to the questionable prac-
tice of dessection, none screamed,
none fainted, none even felt woozy.
Some of the braver, or more sadis-
tic ones, saved an eyeball (or hard-
ened vitreous humor) for good
luck. No spectacular results have
as yet been recorded on the annals
of the sophomore class history but
the gals arc still trying.

OX A mild September day, a
bewildered sophomore class
wandered into the halls of Ames
High with all expectation of living
up to a high goal set before them.
Now at tin end of the year, they
have partly proved themselves
capable of this job. The rest will
be done in the next two years.
To start them on their success-
ful career, they elected Sylvia
Day, Darrell Moore, George Clark,
Janet Miller, Paul Gibbs, and
David Larson as homeroom pres-
idents for the first semester. Sec-
ond semester representatives to the
student council were Nancy Neff.

boys, if they continue to develop,
should prove to be a formidable
team in the coining years. Because
of the fact that many of tin hoys
were playing their first basketball
this year, the squad failed to win
consistently. The boys improved
rapidly from mid-season, and show-
ed Ames fans that strong teams
may be expected.
Boys all over six feet were David
Koch, Marvin Munson, John Angle,
Dave Murray and Norman Zenor.
These boys were backed up by
several good ball handlers and
shots such as Bob Stewart, Darrell
Moore, Bob Schaffer, Stan Hol-
land and Jack Grant. Under the
tutorship of Hi Covey, the boys
became fine rebounders and able
shots, and displayed that ever-
present Ames spirit.
The team this year had a big
schedule, including several games
in which a junior team composed
of Gore, Vifquain, Rothaker,
Hines, Borgmever, Harper and
Seventy-three All work and no play, etc.
O FF to a good start, the Ames

ing squad of 102, largest in Ames
I ligli’s history and bolstered by the
return of 14 lettemien, competed
under pre-war conditions.
Fnder the direction of Hiram

squads worked out at Iowa State

in lies .Moines, tying for second
with Fast High.

FATED with the return of only
one letterman, Paul Sjurson,
the Allies High tennis squad looked
forward to a heavy schedule. Meets
included Roosevelt of Des Moines,
East of Des Moines, North of Des
Moines, West Waterloo and Fort
Dodge before competition began in
the district and state meets. Since
the other conference schools passed
tennis by this year, no conference
meets were held.
In the first meet of the year,
held in Des Moines on April (). the
squad defeated Roosevelt High
seven out of a possible nine match-
es for the first win of the year.
Those making the trip were Ken
Ifartt, Paul Sjurson, Bill All-
bangh, Dean Harper and Terry
Phis was the first, time an Ames
squad has beaten a Roosevelt squad
for four years. Paul Sjurson lost
both his singles matches, as did
Dean Harper; but Bill Allbaugli,
Ken Hartt and Terry Smith clip-
ped their opponents in singles
competition. The doubles combi-
nations of Allbaugli and Sjurson,
and Smith and Hartt defeated
Roosevelt in both doubles games.
Play-off games decided who
would represent the Little Cy-
clones in their meets. Bill All-
baugh, Ken Hartt, Dean Harper,
Bill Hukill. Keith Wallace, Terry
Smith, Bill Daly and Ronald
Emory, along with Sjurson, com-
posed the squad.

presents as the student body’s
choice for Spirit sweetheart. Miss
Wanda June Smith and her two
attendents. Miss Marian rhesling
and Miss Rosella O'Neil.
The election of a Spirit sweet-
heart met with such unanimous
approval last year that it was con-
tinued this year with a few changes.
Instead of just one girl, this year's
winners included the sweetheart
and her two attendents.
These girls were popularly
chosen from eleven finalists nomi-
nated by the student body. The
girls were Joyce Anderson. Jo
Ersland, Norma Hammond, Jane
Pyle, Marian Neff, Janet Miller,
Dorothy Williams and Lyla Day.
All sorts of rumors had been
traveling around Ames High as to
who would be elected Spirit sweet-
heart, but the real truth was known
after intermission at the annual
Spirit Stomp held in the study hall
on December 12, when the sweet-
heart and her two attendants were
presented to the student body.
Wanda, Marian and Rosella were
given corsages of white carnations
and the congratulations of all.
