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. ji nua, e Seniors 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- Eipht 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. i____________________________________________________________________________________________________ ■■■■■■Wcmo to the udent (hodij 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 well done. 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.' Herbert Adams 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 and Jim enjoy these sports with him. •VineSupt. Marvin Nodland. Mr. N. J. Britnall, Dr. W. G. Murray. Prof. W. H. Meeker. Mr. Frank B. Howell, Mr. Frank Adams, Mr. David Edwards Sck ool Idoard 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 fiscal year. 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 Ten 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- lation growth. 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 Adams, X. J. Brintnall, Ray ('. ’unningham and David Edwards.COMPLETE physical exami- 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 immunization “shot." Every child in the schools was also given a rapid inspection and a vision test. Readmittance examinations were given to all those who had been absent for three or more consecu- tive days. A class in home nursing has been given in the home economics de- partment under the supervision of Miss Florence Adolph with the aid of a student teacher. ★ Miss Eva Lindgren and a young patient Elevennncipat J ice THE high school principal's of- fice is a busy place, what with 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. ★ Ruth and Elinor help Mrs. Berglund with the attendance record Twelve★ Mrs. Elliott and Miss Sayre S uiperin tendent THE superintendent's office is responsible for tin coordi- nation of the Aines public schools. Mrs. (Irayce Elliott is secretary to the superintendent of schools, and Miss Laura Sayre serves as stenographer for Mr. Xodland and Mr. Frank B. Howell, secretary of the Board of Education. All the records for the Ames schools are tiled in the superin- tendent’s office. These include at- tendance and grade records for each pupil, records of stamps and bond sales, summaries of various reports from the schools and rec- ords and reports of teachers and supervisors. Ordering and distributing all textbooks and supplies is handled by this office also. During the summer, the superintendent's an- nual report to the Board of Edu- cation and the budget for the next year an prepared and distributed by this office. All bills are checked and paid by this office, and in addition, monthly pay rolls are prepared and salary warrants is- sued for all employees of the pub- lic schools. The adult education program, reaching over two hundred resi- dents of Ames, was arranged and conducted through the superin- tendent's office. Public forum meetings, held for the eleventh consecutive year, were arranged for by Mr. Xod- land. Publicity materials for these forums were distributed by the superintendent’s office. Thirteen MR.

Mr. Cunningham, through his line understanding of young peo- ple and his good judgment and ad- vice. gave us a memorable week, one which will not soon be for- gotten. lilies DIANA MAGI 1.1. In competition with 27,000 other high school students, Diana won the Pepsi-Cola scholarship contest. This award gives her a four-year college education. During high school, Diana was a member of Library Club, editor of the Wei), Devotions chairman on (rirl Reserve Cabinet and assist- ant editor of the Spirit. The whole student body wishes Diana the best of luck in college. She has shown the high standards of Ames High in scholastic achieve- ment. j: fiht ■) iCroSS (Council 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 in Ames. 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. Mrs. Elizabeth Dickinson spon- sored the council. Top Row: Wilson. E.

Gould, Robert- son Xinctcrnudent THE voice of the student body is heard through the Student (’ouncil. 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. c . bounce 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. Officers first and second semes- ter were Herb Robbins, Glenn Minott. presidents; Harold Gas- kill, John Fenlev, vice-presidents; Albert Ballard, Mary Powers, secretaries and Rosalie Robinson, treasurer. Everett Ritland was faculty advisor. Top Row: D. Larson. G. Moore. Paul Gibbs. G. Clark, Maiden. Gore Skoono Row: R. Mc- Farland. M. But- ler. Robinson. J. Miller. S. Day. M.

Robinson, R u s h i n g, Wright R o t i o m R o w: Chase, Joan- niries, Miss Mc- Nally. E. Smith, Mueller treasurers 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- one. One outstanding student trea- surer is Harry Price, who has worked many hours each week for three years. He has borne the title of student treasurer for ath- letics proudly, making a financial accounting of all receipts and ex- penditures. Twcnty-onono oc- FLASHING five-tenths of a sec- ond from the previous fire drill record, fire squad established a new record by emptying the building of students in forty-seven and five-tenths seconds. In addition to conducting fire drills, the twelve senior, fifteen junior and twelve sophomore mem- bers of fire squad were responsible 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. Holland Knight served as fire chief, John Edwards as assistant chief and Max Sowers as secretary- treasurer. Tor Row: Fitzsimmons, Angle. Murray, Grant. T. Shultz. Harper. Sowers. A.

Among the flittering eelebraties of the class of '46 were Dale Breon, selected all-state football guard, Astrid Knutson, who took first place in piano at tin state music contest and Diana Magill, winner of a four-year scholarship award contest sponsored by the Pepsi- Cola company. Marian Ohesling, Paul S jurson and A1 Ballard were chosen “teacher's pets" at the mid- year dance. Spirit sweetheart was Wanda June Smith, with Rosella O'Neil and Marian hesling as her attendents. Lost to the armed services were Richard Ross and Jack Marrs, who joined the Navy. Larry Gus- ta if son returned to Ames High after a year in the Army. Enrolling at Iowa State college at the end of the first semester were Bob Norton. Ronald Becker, Dick Reynolds and John Hansel; Harold (iaskill entered Ohio Stair college. Angel Street, by Patrick Hamil- ton, was presented by the senior class on May 3 and 4. The cast included Margret Wallace as Mrs. Manningham, Dick Arnold as Mr. Manningham, Harry Price as Rough. Phyllis Summers as Eliza- beth, Dorothy Williams and Ellen Stock sharing the part of Nancy and Lew Andrus and Merle Ac- cola as the policemen. The auditorium rocked on March 1 when “Rohhin's Goons,'' the newly organized swing hand under the direction of Herb Robbins, presented an assembly of popular music. Through lots of hard work and lots of good times, the seniors of '46 emerge as confident, ambitious young adults, facing the world of tomorrow. Twenty-fiveACCOLA.

Thirty-six JUnderdo 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 of love. 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 effigy. 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 cast mastered The difficult dialect Top Row: Aldinger.

Returning to Ames High to en- roll as a junior after two years in the Marine corps was Lyle Stoops. The junior executive council was composed of Bruce Gore, pres- ident, Jean Jones, vice-president, Bobby Ilonsinger, secretary, arl Aidinger, treasurer, Robert Bourg- meyer, Margaret Edgar, Phyllis Soreghan, Virginia Thorburn and Harris Jensen. The last and most important so- cial event on the school calendar 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- merly. 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. Th irf ,7-nin«rTor Row: Allbaugh. Bloni. Christianson, N. Brown, Bourne, Bechtel, Borgmeyer Sscond Row: R.

Sometimes it was drib- bling down the floor with a basket- ball: sometimes it was dashing out to the track field to throw the dis- Forty eiis another 149 feet. Or maybe it was dashing to the second year Latin class to see a tall sophomore. Or maybe it was just to learn that all Haul was divided into three parts. IA T the junior fireside in Oetoh- or. the junior hoys forgot to earrv flashlights and stumbled over roots and gullys in tlie path to Lynn Fuhrer Lodge. After they got there, they heard a humorous talk by Mr. Willis. An exerpt from this talk was, “All yon talk about is vemun. If you like de venmn so much, vhy didn't you bring deni along?"

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 school. 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. Sc 7 oh omo re 6 Tor Row: Holi. J. Johnson. Kelly, Koch. S. Holland.

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. Wayne Town, Mary Pierre. John Angle, Dave Murray and Bob Shaffer. Although there were no out- standing persons, many sopho- mores made a good start. Appear- ing in the Dramatic Club produc- tion of llfiniet were Dave Larson, George Clark, Adel Throckmorton, Bob Amine, Bill Burnham. Don Beam, Richard Schreck, Wayne Spangler and others working on stage production. Forty-seven★ Tub and Joyce ★ Joan. Mary and Rosalie ★ John.

Operating without the help of a regular sponsor, the staff worked mostly after school and at noon. Spirit contracts were issued for students to sign and turn in be- fore November 1. Jeanne Harlan and her assistants I nice Wore and Margaret Edgar worked in the morning, at noon and after school writing receipts and tiling the cards.

The effects of war were still felt, however, when the book had to be printed on a little different stork and delays were unavoidable. The art work was done by Dul- cie Severson and Elinor (’base and the photographic work done by Dave Lantz, Ted Grinsted and Phyllis Summers. Writing furiously on copy were Milly Bretnall, Chuck Akin. Alice Ferguson. Marian Chesting, Jeanne Larson, Kenneth Hartt, Frank McNutt, Rosalie Robinson, and Janet Miller. Copyreader Jane Odell, typists Keith Wallace and Jim Born, and proofreaders’ Marilyn Mueller and Joan MrElyea got to work when the copy was turned in and most of their worries were over when the book went to press. Jane Pyle and her assistant editors, Diana Magill and Mary Powers, supervised the work. Sponsors this year were Wesley Bartlett and Arthur Amundson. Fifty-oneFRANTIC tearing of hair, biting of fingernails and wild dashing through the halls identifies a jour- nalism class member on Monday as he tries to finish typing his story, get Miss Charlotte Nelson’s okay on it and hand it in. These aspiring journalists have a dead-line to meet and the future of the paper depends on meeting that zero hour. The members of the journalism class, which is a regular course in the curriculum, are known as the Wkb staff. Under the direction of Miss Nelson they are responsible for writing and editing the .1m ex lliyh TIYr 7 7!’eh which appears every Wednesday as a page of the .1m ex Daily Tribune. Staff positions are appointed by Miss Nelson. The only students eligible to enter journalism class are seniors with above average grades in Knglish. 'The first semester journalists made a creditable showing for themselves this year. Their par- ticipation in a tuberculosis drive contest won them a national honor certificate. Their editions of the paper were judged All American— superior by the National Scholastic Press Association. The second semester staff mem- Fifly-ltoohers, not pictured here, included Marian ('hesling, David Fitch, Jeanne Larson, Bob Long, Diana Magill, Marilyn Mueller, Jane Pyle, Dorothy Schanehe, Wanda June Smith, Phyllis Summers, Margaret Wallace, Barbara Web- er and Patricia Wheelock. But it wasn't all work and no play for tin staff. The Iotra Stott Daily Studt ut staff invited the second semester class to their thir- ty party at the end of the winter quarter. The other journalism organi- zation in Ames High is rub’s club. The group is composed of juniors and sophomores interested in liter- ary work. During the first semes- ter the cubs study the fundamentals of journalistic style. They attend lectures given by Miss Nelson and also hear guest speakers. All this is in preparation for the between semesters edition of the Wkb that is the complete responsibility of the cubs. They act as reporters and editors for this page which is pub- lished during the week that the new journalism class is being or- ganized. During the rest of the year the cubs can submit articles to the Wkb staff and if any of them are print- ed, they will be under a hv-line. When a cub lias had ten inches of his copy printed his name is listed, along with the regular staff mem- bers, as a cub reporter. The cubs really took themselves seriously this year and did a good job on “their'’ edition of the Web. Top Row: Wilson, F. Fitch, M.

While the lli-Y wrapped gifts for the men in the county home, the Girl Reserves selected pack- ages for the ladies. The presidents accompanied the sponsors to the presentation of the gifts. From February 5 to 8. the two organizations combined to present Friendship Week, the traditional Ames High week to bring about more friendliness between groups and iron out difficulties between boys, girls and parents. Mr. Ray Cunningham, secretary of the Y. M. C. A. at Iowa State college. was guest speaker and presented his talks under the general heading of “Patterns of Successful Liv- ing." He also presented forums for seniors, juniors, sophomores, boys, girls and parents. Interviews were arranged for those who wish- ed them. The IIi-Y had general assemb- lies once a month and hobby groups once a month. The hobby groups were Athletics. Photo- graphy, Hunting and Fishing and Aeronautics.

Nevertheless, some prom- ising varsity material was dis- covered. George Duvall, mid-year grad- uate, coached the scrubs for the first half of the season, with crip- ples Mai Schmidt and Duke Wil- son taking over at this point and completing the schedule. The sophs suffered two defeats at the hands of Boone, and one each to Nevada. Story City and Jeffer- son. The turn-out for the home games was above the level in pre- ceding years, but it can be larger a. ★ Practice scrimmage yet. The fact that the scrubs are over-shadowed by the Varsity tends to lower interest in the sophs who deserve a place in the limelight, and should be given .just praise. Tor Row: Stewart. N.

I'nder the able guidance of Coach Ole Tiller, the Little Cyclones lost only to Marshalltown during the regular season, and to Clinton in the first round of the finals in the state tournaments. After defeating Per- ry, Nevada and Mason City, the Little Cyclones dropped a close de- cision to the Bobcats from Mar- shalltown. From this point, the Little Cyclone machine built up a string of fourteen straight victories defeating Newton, Mason City, Wavcrlv, Nevada, Boone, flrinnell, Oskaloosa, Marshalltown, Newton, Boone, Grinncll, Oskaloosa and Central High of Sioux City in that order.

At the end of the regular season, the team selected Rollie Knight as the squad captain for the year. With Rollie absent from the line- up for the first time because of illness, and Paul Sjurson out of action, the Little 'yclones defeated Dowling High of Des Moines, 54 to 33, in a rough battle on the Drake fieldliouse floor. The fol- lowing night the Ames lads won their way into the sub-state meet with a 39 to 32 victory over a scrap- py East High of Des Moines team in the district semi-finals at Drake. The following week the squad traveled to Atlantic to participate in the sub-state meets. The boys took a first round 42 to 25 victory over the host school. They then qualified themselves for the state meet at Iowa City with a hard- fought 44 to 38 win over an under- rated Abraham Lincoln of Council Bluffs team. Traveling to Iowa City the Little (’yclones then fell in the first round of the state finals before a powerful Clinton team, going down by a 43 to 37 score. This defeat brought the fighting Little Cyclones to the end of the trail, ending their high hopes of achieving the goal set by last year's squad. The squad was feted to many honors at the end of the season, and are to be congratulated for a very successful season.

Moore S opLomore (I3ashetball PROBABLY the tallest sopho- more basketball team in Ames High’s history represented the Little Cyclones this year. These 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 King played.

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 Smith. 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.

Sevcnty-t ix★ Managers Hick Shipley a n d Norman Jack- son TO the boys of Ames High who are unable to participate in Varsity athletics, a wide program of intramurals is offered. Home- room competition is carried on in basketball, with wrestling and box- ing tournaments also sponsored. 'These contests were supervised by William Slaichert, and lie was ably assisted by student managers Nor- man Jackson and Richard Shipley. Homeroom 109 defeated home- room 113 in a play-off battle to cop the senior league trophy. Fred Harrison was high scorer for the season as he tallied 99 points. In the “B" league competition. homeroom 108 won its second title in two years by defeating home- room 211 in another play-off battle. Don Green paced the juniors with 109 points.

To the men of Ames, a special Monday night league was again carried on in the high school gym. Sponsored by Ole Tiller, the league enables many cage enthusiasts to continue playing basketball. Seventy-seven Jcur5ltij THE chief reason for an Ames High lad’s participation in athletics is the winning of an “A.’ The main function of the organ- ization is to initiate new members. First-year letterwinners in foot- ball were required to play a basket- ball game with the Pep Club be- tween halves of the Xewton-Ames game. The boys were handicapped by long underwear, boxing gloves, and sheepskins, but defeated the girls, 6-1. Hoys who win their let- ter in spring sports are initiated at Top Row: Mans. Hotchkiss. Breon.

The thirty- six orange-and-black clad Pep lui» girls accepted their responsibility by cheering the Little Cyclones on to victory, selling season tickets, providing entertainment between halves of games and passing out basketball programs. With war-time restrictions lifted on transportation, the Pep Club was able to charter a bus to the traditional Ames-Boone football game. A pot-luck at the cafeteria preceded this trip in November. Officers of Pep Club were: Mar- ian Neff, president: Norma Ham- mond. vice-president; Elizabeth Smith, treasurer and Lyla Day. secretary. Mrs. Myrna (treen spon- sored the girls. Always on the job, Cheer Squad, headed by Miss Opal Robinson, led yells at games and pep as- semblies. On Cheer Squad were Wanda Nichols, Alice Blanchard, Valerie Stephens, Joan Kulow, Wanda June Smith, Chuck Dodds, Bud Winfrey and Marvin Davis. Sevrnt ) -ninrTor Row: Rushing, L.

Stock A X active Girls’ Athletic Assoc- iation attained its ideal this year, which was to enable each girl to develop physically, mentally, morally and socially. It also en- larged its activities by joining the state organization for the first time. G.A.A. is open to every girl in high school who is able to earn the membership requirements. Points must be earned in organized activi- ties. unorganized activities, skill tests, leadership and health charts. A total of 100 points entitles a girl to membership. After this, three types of awards can be earned— a minor “A." a major “A,” and a pillow top—for additional work in the organization. When a girl has earned 1,000 points, she be- comes a member of the state organ- ization. Throughout the year, girls par- ticipate in basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball, track and various other sports. Highlighting the G.A.A. pro- gram is the basketball intramural program. Each homeroom enters a team in the tournament. The win- ning team is awarded the orange and black dog which they may keep in their homeroom the fol- lowing year. Senior homeroom 109 copped the “A" league intramural champion- ship for the second year when they defeated junior homeroom 206, 12-7. Junior homeroom 208 defeated the seniors in 111 to win the B" league championship. The juniors defeated the seniors by a score of 10 to 9. Eiyhty_Aimes Jial __Atk ietic Ji on orJ 71 MES High has always dis- tinguished itself by its spirit of dean playing in all its athletes. This year. Ames boys won many honors on all-state teams and sev- eral won honors on the all-tourna- ment team selected at the State Tournament in Iowa City. The Iowa Daily Press Association is composed of newspapermen from all over the state. It selects all- state teams as does Jack North, staff writer of the Den Moines Tribum. Boys are selected for good sportsmanship, ability, and consistency of playing throughout the season. There are many boys who have done excellent jobs on both basket- ball and football teams this year. Their sportsmanship and ability testify to the fact that the team was good and team spirit excellent during both seasons. They will not soon be forgotten by teammates and classmates.

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. Rosella O’Neil. Marian Chesting, Jo Ersland. Norma Hammond. Joyce Anderson Jane Pyle. Marian Neff.

The Youth Center Coun- cil meets the first Monday of each month to discuss activities. Keith Rushing is chairman of the coun- cil, which consists of eight commit- tees with an adult adviser, a chair- man and a senior, junior, sopho- more and ninth grade member. The committees are as follows: Program, M illy Bret nail, chair- man; Mrs. Robley Winfrey, ad- vise] : Membership, Dave Murray, chairman, Mr. Harry Clausen, ad- viser: House.

They cost $1.50 a semester or $2.00 for the year. Extra money for the Center is collected through paper pick-ups. The Youth Center sponsored the paper drive on the first Saturday of every month. Another project for finances was the selling of honorary adult membership tickets. Each student tried to sell at least two tickets. A prize was offered to the student who sold the most tickets. Popular among all students was Mrs. Sutherland, who supervised the Center activities. Her enthus- iastic friendliness made it a real pleasure to go to the Cyclone Youth Center. Tor Row: J.

'Fhe secret as to who the “King and Queen" would be was revealed at intermission with the presenta- tion of Marian Chesting as “the gal in calico” and Paul Sjurson and Tubby Ballard as “her bash- ful, barefoot beaus.” They were presented with big, red apples while a sextet sang the song ‘ School Days. ’ ’ Other highlights of intermission were Tubby Ballard’s impersona- tion of Mr. Page as Central High’s football coach. Miss Milliams and Mr. Iiitland’s impersonation of the typical Ames High couple, and Jerry Molleston’s solo “Paper J)oll” with Wanda June Smith dancing. The music was furnished by rec- ords and the study hall was deco- rated with big, red apples, pictures of two little “dunces” and a huge report card on which everyone signed his name.
