He started with them and has been with them all the way. becoming well-liked by the class and everyone with whom lie came in contact. Between the small swinging gate and the in- side door. Mrs. Margie Bcrglund reigns. Besides being harassed by people late to classes without excuses, and wheels running around during classes with no excuses, she acts as a private secretary, a stenographer and fills myriads of other detailed jobs. She's in charge of the office girls, makes out the weekly calendar, serves as receptionist, checks everything from cafeteria menus to truants' records and plays a hot game of golf. Mrs. Bcrglund is assisted by the girls with her in the picture, who. she says, “are most efficient." The girls collect attendance slips, issue passes, type letters and in general make themselves handy. They also play hob with the boys that have a tendency to skip class now and then, as they are the hard-hearted souls who make out those little blue seventh period slips. Behind the door marked “II. S. Principar’ and through a small swinging gate and another door sits Mr. Herbert Adams. I'pon him falls the responsibility of admin- istrating the school. He is a combination backer, confidant, adviser and strong-arm man. Also, he’s the voice on the public address system that keeps us up with events. Co-ordinating all the curricular and extra- curricular activities into a smoothly operating unit and still maintaining a high reputation for the school is no mean task. He is tin- unseen hand behind many of the school's successful ventures deserving of credit. Mr. Adams came to Ames from He Mars when ★ Mr . Bcrglund ond the ''most efficient'' girls—Pott, Marilyn and Liz SixTiie superintendent s office has the important job of coordinating the Ames school system. This year Superintendent Watkins was assisted in his office by his secretary. Mrs. Oravee Elliott, and Miss Laura Saviv. who serves as steno- grapher to Hr. Watkins and as secretary of the Board of Education. In the superintendent's office are filed the grade and attendance records of every girl and boy in the Ames school system. Reports from teachers and supervisors from all the Ames public schools are also on file. All of the books and supplies used in the school system are ordered and distributed by this office. The monthly pay rolls are prepared here, and salary warrants are issued for tin- employees of the schools. All other bills are also checked and paid by this office. When the school term is over the office prepares and distributes the superintendent 's annual report on the school system and the budget for the coming year. This office also is in charge of the public forums, several of which are held throughout the year. The publicity for these speakers and forums is handled by the superintendent and his staff. These forums, mainly concerned with world affairs, met with great success this year. Mrs. Elliot and Miss Soyre Study up 2 r, Wallin) Also held during the year was a number of adult evening school sessions. These classes of- fered a wide selection of activities, including typing, photography, woodworking, bookkeeping and various courses in home economics. This program was so successful that additional classes were formed in order to take care of the people who were previously unable to partake in the activities. Classes were held in the high school on Thursday evenings throughout the school year. Due to its untiring efforts, the superintend- dent’s office was instrumental in enabling the nine public schools to operate more efficiently. I SevenThe Ames Hoard of Education takes care of the administrative problems of the Ames Public school system. Keeping the nine public schools running smoothly, as well as placing teachers and approving finances are only a few of tin- tasks of the school board. One of their major problems is the successful handling of faculty appointments, a difficult undertaking in these days of teacher shortages. The members of the board are elected for three year terms, arranged so that there will always be experienced members serving. The secretary is appointed while the treasurer is elected for a two year term. The board meets regularly on the second Monday of each month. Members of the board this year are: William (J. Murray, president; Frank B. Howell, secre- tary; Hiram Munn, treasurer: Frank Adams, X. J. Fl int nail. Kay Cunningham. David Edwards and Dr. Steven N. Watkins, superin- tendent of schools. Mrs. James Johnson, the first woman to serve on the board in recent years, was elected in March to replace Dr. Murray. I.kkt to kight: Dr. Steven X. Watkins. Mr. Hiram Munn.

And the man had taken a picture. Students found it fun to get out of class, run out- side to a big smooth-look in" truck and stand in front of a complicated machine. It was all part of a state- wide campaign to tind tuberculosis in an early and curable stage by tak- ing miniature X-ray films. High school teachers, jan- itors and ninth grade pu- pils were included. f the 453 X-rays taken, six high school students showed abnormal shadows. Enlarged X-rays of those six were taken a month later and the final report sent to the family physician. This program was carried out in co- operation with the Iowa State Department of Health, the county, state and national tuber- culosis associations, the Ames Board of Educa- tion and the county medical society. Public speaking students cooperated in the light against tuberculosis by preparing speeches on subjects such as the first Christmas seal and detect- ing tuberculosis in its early stages. The best scripts were read over radio sta- tion WO I. This was one of the special projects under the direction of the school health department. Also, every student was given hearing and vision tests. Athletic examinations were under the supervision of the nurse’s office. Every sophomore was given a complete physical exami- nation and any abnormal conditions were reported to the pupils and their parents. To most students the nurse's office was the place where they were greeted with a friendly smile by the nurse. Miss Eva Lindgren, or the school physician. Dr. Kenneth ('. Piercv, after they had been absent three or more consecutive days. ★ T. 8. refugees Pretty Colleen vs. X-ray machine ThirteenFkont How: Anglo. Pincham. Neff. Mr. Hitland, Bechtel.

Hall Doing its best to carry out the ideals of democracy throughout the school, this year's student council deserves much credit for organiz- ing and directing school activities and promot- ing interest in them. The eighteen homerooms in Ames High are represented on the student council by their presidents. Presiding over council meetings and representing the students as a whole are the duties of the student body president. This was the first year in the school's history that such an officer has been elected. In addition to supervising school affairs and deciding on matters of general policy, the coun- cil was divided into s. ven committees to take care of spicifie duties. The assembly committee planned all assemblies for the year, providing a varied and interesting program. The awards committee approved all awards, as well as spon- soring three awards assemblies. One was held in the fall and one in the winter for athletics, and one in the spring for scholastic, band, vocal music and spring sports awards. The noon-hour committee worked hard this year to provide for a well-rounded noon-hour program. Featuring volleyball and softball tournaments, the entertainment also included dances, musical assemblies and movies. The social committee handled open house as well as sponsoring matinee dances and the annual mid- Fourtcenf rexied DAVE BECHTEL First Semester NORMAN BROWN Second Semester citizenship committee. Every morning, noon and evening you could find a member of the service citizenship committee, which helps enforce the school's traffic and parking regulations. Every morning, noon and evening you could find a member of the service committee in the office at the lost and found desk. The publicity com- mittee saw that all school events were well- publicized through the newspapers, over the cound system, and by posters distributed in the business district. Officers for this year were Dave Bechtel and Norman Brown, president; Norman Brown and Bob Egemo, vice president; Nancy Neff and Norma Moore, secretary; Mary Pierre and Susan Tilden. treasurer.

Barnes Max Sowers, fire chief, pushed the students of Ames High around this year with the aid of Miss Miller, sponsor, and the rest of the “gestapo.’’ The duties of the fifteen seniors, twelve juniors and fourteen sophomores are subject to many whimsical remarks, but they are really essen- tial. The junior and sophomore members are on duty in the halls from 8 :.i0 to 8:45, 12:10 to 12:45 and 12:45 to 1:00. The seniors filled in in the absence of the underclassmen: other- wise. they loafed. Regular meetings are held every Thursday noon at 12:25 to discuss the problems that are met during the week. Assignments for the fol- lowing week are also issued. Other officers are Ned Yifquain. assistant fire chief, and Dave Bechtel, secretary-treasurer. Sixteen ★ Fire Squod on duty 3 udent dJr reasurers Try the machine, Andy Dulcic astitis Mist McNally with Ihe books Ames High's monetary system is handled by this group of student treasurers. Every member is responsible to Miss Mary McNally, general treasurer, and Dulcic Severson, her assistant. Duplicate cash books are kept by both tlie general treasurer and the students and are checked once a month so the few errors made are readily corrected. All money is kept in a general cheeking account. To make, out a check the treasurer must write out a requisition, sign it himself, have his sponsor sign it and get Mr. Adam’s signature. This accomplished. Miss McNally makes out a check for the amount specified. Every activity operates on a budget which it is supposed to follow as closely as pos- sible. Activities which have no visible means of support are aided by organizations showing a profit from the previous year. Much credit is due to Miss McNally and the student treasurers for the success of their excellent financial system. This type of training is valuable in develop- ing business-like characteristics in the student treasurers. It is required of them to In exact and prompt for the books must be checked by the state auditor. It is essential that the treas- urers be trustworthy, accurate and dependable because of the great responsibility placed in their hands.

The annual membership drive netted $96 for ill- National Junior Red Cross. Over 100 Christmas boxes were packed for Iowa orphans and children overseas. Junior Red Cross knit- ters worked on afghans for soldiers in con- valescent hospitals. The council also worked on a scrap book about our communi;v and nation which was sent to another country to promote international friend- ship. During the summer of 1946 .Jean Jones and Mary Jo G were sent to the Junior Red Cross district camp in Montana. Sponsor of the c unoil was Mrs. Elizabeth I lickinson. Officers for the council were Mary Jo Giese. chairman; Wayne Brown, production; George Clark, publicity; Joan Jones, album chairman. Sponsor was Mrs. Elizabeth Dickinson. Front Row: McCann.

An all school election chose seniors Ned Vit' qua in and Mary lee Rushing as king and queen of the mid-year dance ‘Half-Time Holiday.” Elected Spirit sweetheart was Phyllis Eschbaeh with Marilyn Townsend and Bobby Honsinger as her attendants. Eleanor Johns and Bob McFarland were honored by being chosen among the twelve finalists in Iowa in the Pepgi-Cola scholarship tests. Eleanor was elected as winner of a certi- ficate of merit and $50. The conference basketball championship won by Ames High this year was due largely to the ability and effort of the senior members of the squad. Chosen as the senior class play was Little Women, adapted from the novel by Louisa Alcott. This costumed play of the L860’s was directed by Omar Lett.

In the field of athletics, Jim Robertson led the underclass hv lettering in varsity football. During the year the sophomores took active Wayne Crosley The tragic death of Wayne Crosley on January 14 brought to an end a life full of promise and left all who knew Wayne saddened. Wayne was a member of our class, a good student, a good companion, and everyone knows we have lost a valued and loyal friend. Wayne stood for everything young and fine. He will not die in the hearts of those who love him and love the things for which he stood. part in Hi-Y and Girl Reserve. Dick Fincham was elected president of Hi-Y. and many under- classmen served as vendors at games and worked on paper drives.

Daulton Beginning dramatics offered a chance for students to become acquainted with stage work. This being their first year they were not per- mitted to act in the Dramatic Club plav hut a large part of the actual work of producing the play was done by them. Working on costumes for the play were Pauline Thielman. Phyllis Mathews and Delores Dryer. .Jane Thomas and Ellen Pederson assist- ed with make-up. Mary Daine with publicity, and Beverly Summers with special effects. Bar- bara Judge, for a time acting head of properties, was assisted by Sheila Moore and Mary Sue John. All members of Beginning Dramatics helped build set and on the night of production many of them helped with the ushering. During class period students learned stage terminology and acting techniques. Monologues were given by each member of the class and criticized by the remainder of the class. Make-up was studied and from directions given by Mr. Omar Lett the students experi- mented on their classmates with straight make- ups. Several of the elass members worked on selec- tions for the Iowa City Forensic league con- test. Chosen to participate in the one-act play at Iowa City in April was Mary Ann Comstock. Forty-nixThe Library club was organized in 15)35 by Miss Ada Wood, who sponsored it until her resignation from Ames High in 1937. This year, 15 47. we have had two different teachers helping in the library, who have done a marvelous job in looking after it and the students who come in the library to use its books. At the present time we are very fortunate to have as sponsor Mrs. Dickinson. She has spent much of her time with the library and has done an excellent job in keeping it in order. Each member, whenever free of class, works in the library. They do various jobs, such as cheeking books out. putting books in the right order on the shelves and filing books, magazines and cards. ★ Morgore» poyi for an overdue book ★ Slaving over the books Front Rovf: Notcott.

Spies Members of the journalism class are respons- ible for writing and editing the Ames High Weekly Web which appears in the Anus Daily Tribune every Wednesday. To take journalism, which is a regular one semester course in the curriculum, a student must be a senior who has maintained a “IV’ average in his junior English. In the class, under the direction of Miss Charlotte Nelson, students learn the fundamentals of news writ- ing. interviewing and writing feature stories. Staff positions are appointed by Miss Nelson. Playing up special features of local and inter- national importance, these aspiring journalists learn that in this way they can have an influence on the thinking of Ames High students. One issue during the first semester was devoted mainly to articles and an editorial on the inter- national organization, 1'NESCO. Following two motor vehicle accidents, one of which was fatal to a high school student, the staff made a special effort to emphasize safety. During Thanksgiving vacation Miss Nelson and Mary Powers attended the National Scholas- tic Press association convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The second semester staff included Bill Allbaugh, Shirley Carter, Stan De La Hunt. Phyllis Eschbach. Patt Forsyth. Margaret Fow- ler. .Jean Jones, Pita Stock, Bill Hippaka, Nancy Wilson. Bruce Gore, Marylee Pushing. Max Sowers, Dean Harper and Tom King. Fifty Cubi hord ot work on mid-year isiuc Writing. making a layout sheet and publish- ing tin- between-si-mesters issue of the Web were the activities of Ames High's junior journalism organization, the Cubs' club, during the past year. Cubs' club is open to anyone who is interested in journalism and includes sophomores, juniors and seniors. Printing the bet ween-semesters Web was the club's major project and all of the other activities of the year were undertaken to prepare for this issue. One of the goals for a cub to work for was to have ten inches of his copy printed in the Web, which entitled him to be listed as a reporter in the weekly issue. Front Row: S. Moore. Malmberg.

Seaman Fiery remarks were again being tossed between the positive and negative sides of the Ames 11 iirl debaters, after termination of forensic activities in 1944. Reorganizing under the sponsorship of Miss Edna Williams, they drafted a new consti tut ion and elected tin following officers: Ted Schulz, president: Helmut Seaman, vice presi- dent; Jo McCann, secretary; Bud Winfrey, treasurer. “Eighteen or twenty-one, which should it be?" was the question argued by Margaret Fowler and Frank Malden on the positive side, opposing Helmut Seaman and Merle Eggert on the negative. A transcription of this program was broadcast over radio station K ENT's “Junior Town Meeting of the Air" from Ames High's auditorium. Entering tin contest offered by the Brindley discussion and debate tournament, which was held at Cedar Falls, the Ames High debaters disputed the question “How can we provide for the health of our nation?" From Cedar Falls, the debate club argued its way to the Iowa City Forensic club meet, where they again debated a health problem: “Resolved: That the Federal government should provide a system of complete medical care available to all citizens at public expense."

Mrs. Sutherland. Abbott, Swank Three years ago the recreation center for the Ames high students was established. Many students turned in different names they thought would tit the center, and the one best liked was “Cyclone Center.” The Cyclone Center is a place where the students have the privilege to play ping pong, pool, cards, and dance, eat, make new friends and have social gatherings. Our Center of today is located in the basement of the bandshell. which is just a tem- porary place until we have a perma- nent youth center. The center has been sponsored by Mrs. Sutherland, who has done a splendid job of looking after the youth center for two years. Her job is not an easy one by any means, and she has devoted all of her time to the youth center and its members. If we students of Ames High want a new youth center, much of the work is going to be left up to us to help with planning for it and getting it organized. Several business men and women are now helping us to locate a new youth center.
