Thirty-sixCoach of the Year Highlighting tin- 1 95 0 football season and his coaching career v as t h c naming of Kenneth Wells as Iowa's Prep ('each of the Year by the Des Moines Register and Tribune To the Ames High foot- ball fans, the selection came as a surprise to no one. They have long recognized h i s high character, clean stand- ards, and his outstanding ability to convert light, in- experienced s 1 u a d s into championship teams. Kenny came to Ames in 1929 as a student at Iowa State College, where he earned eight varsity letters in football, baseball, and track. In 1938 he began coaching at Ames High, and has been here ever since, except for three years with the Navy during the war. During his 10 vears at Ames High, Kenny's Coach Wells inspiring a team member during a tense game Kenny Writs doing his bookicork in his office football teams have won 66 games, lost only 9, and tied 4. He has coached three unbeaten teams, in 1938, 1942 and 1950. and has won 7 confer- ence championships. The 1950 season was little more than a typical one for tin coach of the year. With a team that averaged only 155 pounds, and with only 10 returning lettermen and two regulars, he guided them through a terrific 8- game schedule to a ranking as the third best team in the state. Football isn’t his only sport. In 1948 he was basket- ball coach and took a so-so Ames High team to the state tournament. Kenny is also r e g a r d e d as a top-flight track coach, and at present is Ames Nigh's athletic di- rector. We of Ames High join in congratulating Kenny.

The season begins as soon as school starts in September, and 20 or 30 boys trudge down to the tieldhouse to start practice. The top choice of equipment goes to the var- sity. but there is usually enough good equipment left over for the sophs. The sophs practice from 4-(i after school, so as not to conflict with tin- varsity practice schedule. Since much of the season is spent in learning fundamentals and acquiring techniques for future varsity play, the sophs do not play a full game schedule. However, •”» or 6 games arc usually played, some of them with reserve teams. Under the coaching of Ron Norman, and with the assistance of Harold Shugart, the sophomores displayed a brand of football well worth watch- ing in the years to come.

At tip- end of the season, the trackmen «-hose Dick Fowler and John Maney as tin- co-captains of the track squad. Strengthening the squad consul» rably were the return of 11 lcttermen from last year’s team which finished second in state finals. These in- cluded Jim Allen. Art Barnes, lien Buck, Dick Fowler, Jim (lalligaii. John Maney. Irwin .Milli- ken. Dick Peterson. Nick Piper. Dick Stuber, and Charles Thorburn. Working out in the men’s gym at tin- college until the weather was nice enough to go out- side. the boys were able to continue practice. The squad faced a rough schedule. The A AC Meet was first; then came the State Indoor, Valley Relays, State Teachers Relays, Drake Relays, and the Little Cyclone Invitational. Next came tin- district meet at Fort Dodge; next they defended their crown at the conference meet at Crinnell; and finally finished with the climax at the state finals. An extensive reserve program was also car- ried out. Dual meets with Itoone and Newton reserves, and two meets with reserves from the Dcs Moines schools were held for those boys who ii«l not see action with tin- varsity. Ames could not remain one of tin- top schools in track and field sports without the expert guidance of Coach Mi Covey and his assistant. Ken Wells. Our hats go off to them for the fine work they have done and will continue to do. [•'ortfi-ninrIntramurals TOP: Huntley. B. Barnard, C. Burnham. J. Johnson. T. Peterson. SECOND: Mr. Smalling.

The hoy’s intramural program attracted a bumper crop of ardent athletes during the year who were not out for varsity sports. Practically every Ames High boy took part in one of the 19 programs offered. Basketball was again the most popular sport. In the senior league 238 and 110 tied at the end of the season, with 238 copping the title in the playoff. Bill Sumberg was tin- top senior scorer with 101 points. IIomcrOQm 234 was the junior winner, with Don .Johnson the top scorer with 7f points. In the sophomore league, 211 won the championship. (Jeorgc Allen paced the sophomore scorers with 72 points. The climax of the basketball season came in the All-Star games. For the first time in 17 years, the senior All-Stars pasted the faculty All-Stars 42-37. Elsewhere, the junior and soph reserves downed the junior All-Stars. 19-1(1. while the soph All-Stars fell to the sophomore reserves. 19-15. In the fall, 110, 234. and 230 topped their leagues in touch football. Charlie Thorburn card- ed a 7(i in the golf tournament, while Bob Bray- ton. Aldor Petersen, and Don Paulson won the tennis crowns. Tug-o-war went to 110, 109. and 208: top scorers in hunting were 232. 113. 111. and 230. Bowling had a big turnout, with John Lily, Bob Kennedy, and Pete I.odden the winners. Second to basketball in popularity was wrestl- ing. After spirited and rugged competition. 232. 234. and 211 grabbed the crowns in that sport. Volleyball championships went to 110. 138. and 211. An extensive program was outlined lor the spring by sponsor Kay Smalling, who was ably assisted throughout the season by the intramural managers and the intramural council.

An old practice reinstated this year was the selection of a G.A.A. Girl of the Month. Every two weeks the members chose a girl whom they felt had contributed to the betterment of the organization. Through this nomination a num- ber of girls were given recognition. Girls who had earned 100 [mints were brought into the club at a formal initiation held in danuarv. Afterwards they had informal initia- tion in the cafeteria where the girls participated in relay games. A potluck supper held for the winners of the baseball and badminton singles followed the rtcreation. Taking advantage of tin muscle-stirring fall weather, the season opened with a softball tour- nament. However, preferring the gym to the cold, badminton soon became the main attraction. This was followed by a rough and ready basket- ball round-iobin and tournament and then tak- ing advantage of the opportunity for a variety of sports, such things as bowling, ping pong, volleyball and general plavnights thrived. Judg- ing by the accompanying pictures, in addition to the many benefits of the program, a good time was had by all. Fifty-twoCAA s Athletes Homeroom HH teas the A league basketball win- ner.

Varsity Club consists of those hoys who have won that elusive black and orange “A" in athletics. Over " 0 hoys belonged to the club this year. The letter-sweater is the mark of a varsity club member. An athlete cannot wear a letter- sweater until he has participated for a pre- scribed time in one of the varsity sports. An athlete who wins a letter in a varsity sport receives a colored chevron. An orange chevron denotes a letterwinner in football; the chevron for basketball is green; track is white; golf is red; and tennis is blue. A like-colored star is awarded to the team captain in that sport. Boys who won their first letter during the football season were initiated into the club by playing a basketball game with the senior girls in Pep Club between halves of the Grinnell- Ames game. Slightly handicapped by sheepskins, boxing gloves, and long underwear, the boys managed to gain a moral victory with a 0-0 tie. The big club activity in the spring was the annual picnic held at the Homewood Golf Course. Here first year spring letterwinners had tin express pleasure of being thrown into the river. Officers of the club this year were: Dick Fowler, president; Dick Day, vice-president; Richard Harlan, secretary; .Jim Galligan, treas- urer; and Keith Brown, historian. Kenny Wells was sponsor of the organization. Fifty-fivePep Club TOI : J. Wilson. Dilts. J. Hall. Maywald. McCoy. McElvea. M. McGuire. Yates. Cole. Grant. FOURTH: Miss Robinson. M. Arnold. Murray.

Resides having charge of tin half- time entertainment at the football games and the assembly pep skits, the girls made and sold pom-poms and megaphones, and sold tickets on a competitive basis for the season’s football and basketball games. The entire Pep club and Cheer squad marched in a city-wide fire pre- vention parade in the fall of the year. Some of the members ushered at Iowa State home foot ball games and handed out programs at the high school basketball games. During football season the club journeyed to Newton, where at the half-time, they executed formations with tin Marching band. They also chartered busses to Grinnell and Sioux City for basketball games. These trips were made pos- sible by two fund raising bake sales. The girls also participated in collecting money for the Red Cross Drive at the half of one of the basketball games. Announcements were made over the sound system telling about forth-coming track meets, tennis and golf matches. Social activities included the annual pot-luck before the Room game. The affair was closed with the traditional kissing of the Little Green dug. A luncheon was held in the spring to elect officers for the following year. This year's officers were Jody Hall, presi- dent ; Ruth Davis, vice-president; Connie Moore, secretary; and Jean Murray, treas- urer. The members of Pep club are chosen yearly on the basis of scholastic ability, sportsmanship, pep and energy, and moral and social stand- ards. The club consists of thirty-six girls.

Harper Do you groan and moan when you are asked to be at school at S o'clock in the morning? Are you just plain lazy? If you are, you don't belong to the cheersquad. The members of this ambiti- ous group have to spring out of bed early enough to be at school at 7:30. Cheersquad meets three times each week at this early hour. Monday mornings the group plans the sound system announcement for the game of that week, the pep assembly if they have one. and discusses the previous week's mistakes and problems. Tuesday and Thursday they have regular prac- tice in the gym to take the kinks out of the yells and to work on new ones. The alternates on the squad also come on Tuesday. Friday noon at 12:20 they practice in the auditorium. The signs you see posted up around the school on Friday were probably done by the cheersquad who has charge of making them. Although no brand news veils have been thought up this year, they have made different routines for some of the old ones. Cyclone whisper, brethren yell, and some chants are a few of the revised yells. The group originated the motions for the school’s new pep song. The words were written by R. I). Day, band director. Certain yells are used more often in one sea- son than another. Chants are used more fre- quently during the football season while most of the clay veils are used during basketball seas m. Cheersquad has much in common with the larger organizations in the school. They have a constitution which tells the purpose of the or- ganization. prescribes the election of members and fines which may be imposed. A member who is late to morning practice is fined and when late to a game, is given the same penalty as a Pep club member. Election of the cheersquad members is carried on in the spring. .Junior and sophomore classes elect six members to represent that class and then the student body votes on the final six. Patty Harper, head cheerleader, was elected by the cheersquad in the fall. Her special duties are to contact speakers for the pep assemblies, see Mr. Day about music, and have charge of yells. Fifty-sevenPep Club Fun The big topic of conversation in November was the mysterious disappearance of the Little Green Jug.

With a cast of over 80 people, both begin- ning and advanced groups worked together to integrato movies, modern dances and dramatiza- tion. The five main characters were Hob Lee, Margot Miller, Jerry Johnson. Gordon Shepherd, and Marcia McGuire. The juniors averaged ten murders daily while working on their production And Tin re Wen Xone by Agatha Christie. Adapted from the stage play Ten Little Indians, it required that all actors learn and use the English accent. Parts were played by the following people: Mary Louc Wilson, Hob Lee, David Walkup. Jerry Johnson, Francis Judge, David Taft, Jean Murray, Nancy Winslow. Lyle Henry, Jim Mullica, and Bob Peters. The Druid Circle, romantic comedy by John Van Druten, was presented by the senior class in April. The east included: Gordon Shepherd. Richard Harlan, Hob Spangler, Margot Miller, Mary Jane Arnold. Grace Jackman, Joan Stock. Beverly Scherumann. Jody Wilson. Marian Martin. John Judge and Dick Day. The beginning dramatics clubs concentrated on learning lips for acting, theater history, and how to build stage sets. In addition to helping on major productions, they presented a series of one-act plays in April. Business manager for the combined drama clubs was Colleen Blayney.

This is allowed to accumulate until the end of the year. The money is then used to finance a grandious picnic. Our “defenders of justice” and their dates this year consumed many cases of pop, dozens of weiners and buns, two gigantic pots of beans and a dishpan of potato salad. Appetites for the gala event were worked up at a softball game and other acti- vities. Highlights of tin evening was the traditional dunking of the Fire Chiefs. First semester chief. Dick Day. was selected to be the first victim. John Xichols, second semester chief, was hon- ored immediately afterward. When the “Orange and Black badge boys” aren't engaged in picnicing, they spend their time passing out little red cards, more com- monly known as warnings. At meetings con- ducted every Thursday noon, they develop new and better methods of catching offenders. Members are also called upon to maintain order at fire drills. There are 39 members in Firesquad, 13 from each class. These members are selected by the principals of the junior high schools when they become sophomores. The juniors and sophomores are stationed at posts where they search out breechers of the peace. The seniors have no definite post but may take names at any time or place during school. The motto of this stellar organization is: Justice through warnings. 8evcnt Student Treasurers TOP: Murray, Rouze, Kurtz. Roberson. G. Shepherd, Johndreau. SECOND: M. Knutson, M. Martin. Moore. Getz.

The success of Ames High’s financial system is due largely to the hard work of tin- student treasurers. Kadi extra-curricular and class or- ganization has one of these trusty souls who keeps track of the money for his activity. When an organization needs to pay out money, the student treasurer fills out a requisition for the amount, has his sponsor sign it. and gets Principal Herbert Adams’ signature. The treas- urer then takes it to Miss Mary McNally, general treasurer, who writes the check for the amount required. The last chore is seeing that the check is delivered. Recognition should be given to the hard work put in by Marilyn Seversike, Miss McNally's assistant, and Jon Roberson, who assisted Mr. Don Hai ti as athletic treasurer. Seventy-oneSpirit Staff The Si'iKii editorial staff Dick hat . Xonua Hedrick ami Sm I.aCramjr The Spirit staff was made up of a few editors, hut also essential were the many people who contributed time and work to help make the yearbook possible. This years staff met in Mr. Trump's, the sponsor, room to plan the order of the book, make schedules for taking pictures, write copy, and read proofs. After selecting a cover, work was started on the body of the book. During this time the adver- tising manager. Pat Harper, had her advertising staff do selling of ads to tin merchants of Ames. Also at work was the copy staff who had to track down and write about all the different organizations. This staff was headed by (Jordon Shepherd and Nanev Stahlman. Bob Lee, photography editor, saw to it that pictures were taken of the activities going on around the school. Mis able assistants and the actual photographers were Phil Arthur and Fred Allen. The staff learned how to paste up pictures for the engraver’s, write copy for certain spaces, reduce pictures in size and plan interesting lay- outs. All this work was carried on to make possible another printing of the yearbook, the Spirit. Those helping Pat with the work were Dick ( illhert.son. Millie Willett. Chloe Morris. Marilyn Knutson, Liz Seaman. Delores Fisher, Carol liohenshell. Barbara Hyler. Grace Jackman, Kloisc Hansen. Pat McGuire, Kaye Johndreau, Sue Brown, and Pat Ilurlburt.

To “be accurate, be accurate, be accurate” was the aim of all journalism students who edited and reported for the Web. This advice and other fundamental dos and «lou ts were ex- plained by Miss Charlotte Nelson, faculty ad- visor, who teaches the art of journalistic writing. The class worked on a two staff basis, alternating each week. Assignments were made on Tuesdays. Wednesdays and Thursdays were devoted to class exercises, and stories were written and typed Fridays and Mondays. After copy was checked and headlined the make-up was completed. Wednesday morning proof reading was done and tin finished product appeared that evening in the Tribune.

Cub’s Club, Ames High School’s journalism organization, is open to all students who are interested in the field of journalism and are not yet members of the regular journalism class offered to seniors only. Meetings every Monday introduce the Cub to the principles of journalism and teach him how to use these basic principles in actual practice. After writing several pieces for the Web, the major task of the year is undertaken. Cubs write and edit the first Web of the second semester. Kaeh Cub is responsible for one and maybe two stories for this weekly news sheet. Those students who satisfactorily complete their assignments for this issue are given the opportunity to write for the regular Web and the Spirit. Under the guidance of Miss Charlotte Nelson, journalism instructor. Cubs learn briefly about newspaper writing and the basic principles in- volved and are ready to sign up for journalism in their senior year, if they are interested. Ames High finds many activities for students talented in journalism. This year, for example, the student council undertook the complete revision of the “little black handbook.” This job was entrusted largely to students who had gained some of their original journalistic ex- perience as Cubs.

Activities of tin ’50-’51 Ames High Junior Red Cross council started with an enrollment drive held in October. At Christmas-time 10 boxes of presents for 10 girls in a eon vent at Sioux Falls. South Dakota were bought, wrap- ped and sent by the council. Also at Christmas, tray covers, tray favors and nut cups were made and sent to the Children’s Hospital in Iowa City. The Veterans’ Hospital in Des Moines re- ceived St. Patrick’s Day menu covers, designed in a high school art class and printed under the sponsorship of the Red Cross. The Easter program of sacred music presented by the a cappella shoir on Hood Friday was also a Red Cross sponsored project. Instead of tin usual gift boxes Ames High sent a school chest to a school in Europe with enough supplies for the school for a year. A school album was donated to the international correspondence program. A new activity was the old record drive held to gather records to give to tin boys and girls in the state training schools at Eldora and Mitehellville. Entertaining 20 senior boys and girls from Duluth, Minnesota was one of the social highlights of the council’s activities. Sponsored by Mrs. Elizabeth Dickinson, this group was headed by Jane Cask ill and Judy Wilson, co-presidents, and Marcia McGuire, secretary. Library club, also under the direction of Mrs. Dickinson, helped with the checking of books in the library and the girls received training in library work. Film Operators club took care of any visual aids Or recordings needed by the school. Mr. Page was the sponsor of this club. Scventi '.sci’cnDebate TOP: A. Peterson. Roberson, Mr. Paul, G. Shepherd.

Starting off the tournament season with a trip to the Brindley Discussion and Debate at Cedar Falls, the varsity squad of Fred Walker and Jon Roberson, affirmative, and Pat Hurl- burt and John Judge, negative, ranked first in debates won. Jon Roberson also received the highest individual rating entitling him to a scholarship to Iowa State Teachers College. The next tournament was the district meet at Oelwein where the towns of northeastern Iowa vied for a place to the state finals. Here again Ames was first with a record of eight wins and no losses. The final trip of the season was to the state tournament at Iowa City. Here the squad tie- hated the other district winners and partici- pated in Student Senate, a body patterned after the United States Senate. Coming home with honors were John Judge with a superior in debate. Fred Walker and Pat Hurlburt with excellents in debate, and Jon Roberson with an excellent as a senator of the Student Senate. Seventy-eightRadio Club If it hadn't been for Jim Allen’s free taxi service the Ames High Radio Club would probably have accomplish- ed very little this year. The clubs major public-service project for the past two years has been to repair and rebuild old and incapacitated radios and donate them to the Mary Hreely Hospital for use bv the patients there. Jack Anderson, Hal Harris, Dick Harlan and Stan El well did the repair work while Dick Harris. Kill Jackson and Jim Allen made arrangements with the hospital and in stalled the sets after they were in good working order. The biggest addition in equipment this year was a 12 inch television kit which has proved equal to a ready-built set. Some other instruments purchased include a vacuum tube volt-ohmeter for highly accurate resistance and volt- age measurements, a signal tracer and a signal generator. First semester president was Dick Harlan with Stan Ell well in the office of vice president. Second semester president was Dick Harris with Bill Jackson as vice president. Jack An- derson as secretary and Jim Triplett filling the position of treasurer. S vcnt j -nineCafeteria Staff TOP: Hrown, Kennedy, Sands. Harlan, lirayton, Maney. SECOND: Sass. Mrs. Varr«n, Mrs. Marsh. Ovti, Merchant. FRONT: Miss Oalster, Yates, Hyh-r. The cafeteria staff had a large and usually thankless job. Early each noon the students who worked in the cafeteria were let out early so they would be ready to go to work while others ate. These students assisted Miss Oalster. cafeteria sponsor, in making the noon meal possible. Their chores included preparing some of the food, carrying meals to the faculty, serving at the counters, and. last but not least, washing dishes. Some of the people who helped but were nor known to a lot of people were Konnie Kooser, who scrubbed and cleaned up after the noon hour was over, and Opal Durby who put up tin- menu each day. Resides the regular workers in the cafeteria, college girls received training at the high school by helping with the lunches and tin- serving of them. This year a new system of having the students enter the cafeteria by two's was tried. Instead of letting people rush to the line every day. the students lined up two abreast down the middle of the east hall. The students then entered the cafeteria by two’s until the usual rush was past. This helped to avoid a lot of confusion and proved to be very satisfactory. The student council worked with Miss Galster to develop tliis system. The cashiers this year were Patsy Yates, Nancy Merchant, and Nancy Getz who did a fine job with the handling of the money. It wasn’t all work and no play for the cafe- teria staff, but Ames High could not get along without the fine workers who. under the able supervision of Miss Oalster. help make the noon hours run smoothly.

The 1950 affair was held on October 27, and included a Homecom- ing queen, a thrilling football game, a gala party, and a big parade and pep rally. During the week previous to Homecoming, elections were carried out for the queen. An all-school election resulted in the naming of 10 girls as finalists. The queen and her two at- tendants were then chosen from this list by A1 Rockwell, popular Des Moine3 radio disk jockey. Reigning as Homecoming queen was .M iss Mary Jo Highbarger. Her two attendants were .Miss Jody Hall and .Miss Alary Jane Arnold. They were presented before the foot- ball game, and again during the dance.

In the finest game of the season, Ames punched over a second-half tally to defeat one of the state's top teams, which thrilled the huge crowd. The high school study hall was the scene of the Homecoming dance following the game. Invited to the party were all Ames High stu- dents, faculty, and especially alumni. Marked by traditional Ames High fun and hospitality, the dance was a fitting climax to a highly suc- cessful 1950 Homecoming.
