Committees set to work. Lots of time then, but too little when That date drew too close, too fast. Worry over things undone, uncompleted, unpracticed. But, the time ran out And we realized we were ready. Relive the magic Of that special evening. The date that was circled on the calendar— That was looked foward to. And made all the dull days liveable. The evening that left a yellow chrysanthemum, Or a red-and-black-tasseled program on a bulletin board; Or a memory that brings a smile. Because everything that happened was so perfect That it can never happen again. AFTER A LONG SUMMER, registration caused rusty brains to begin functioning once again. Cblti Up t pXPJpOJib SOpUnOteS Cutij upp idlMShi H tii tjfeCW Sophomore orientation was originated to avoid the usual first week of utter confusion experienced by most sophomores. Prospective students gathered a few days before school started and as in the past, Mr. Adams officially welcomed them, students met counselors, and sophomore cheersquad was chosen. Upperclassmen took them in groups to tour the school and they were able to discover where their class- rooms were. Because the weather was cooperative, the assembly was held outside. Registration took place a week before school started with each class coming on a separate day to register and receive schedules. Unnerving to many was collection of towel fees for the first time in this building. 16 Representing Girls' State this summer was Sandy Spatcher. chosen by popular vote and an interview. THE AMERICAN LEGION sponsored Hawkeye Boys State, last summer attended by Greg Duncan, Dan Smith, and Jerry Boylan. The session is a model legislative as- sembly where representatives elect their own officers and pass several mock bills.

Homecoming '65-'66 was success- fully launched at a morning assem- bly after many hours of committee planning headed by Nancy Yang and Merrill Anderson. As master of ceremonies, Merrill introduced Mr. Kenny Wells, Secretary of the Iowa Education Association and former coach at AHS, as guest speaker. Mr. Adams presented the Spirit Jug and Pep Club provided an appropriate skit which was ended by Coach Spatcher leading a horse that car- ried two vanquished Roosevelt Rough Riders. The assembly was cli- maxed by the long-awaited an- nouncement of Homecoming Queen. Queen Debbie Politis and her at- tendants, Marcia Frigaard and Sandy Spatcher, officially began their reign over the Homecoming festivities. A police-escorted caravan to the high school was the final activity of the morning. HOMECOMING QUEEN CANDIDATES: Muriel Foreman, Sandy Spatcher, Mary Thompson, Jane Peterson, Sara Beals, Dee Gilreath, Kathy Cooper, and Marcia Frigaard. (Not pictured is Debbie Politis.) 18% N % I THIS PICTURE MAY look like a Pep Club recess period, but Gayle I McKenna and fellow Pep Club members are actually wrapping the I goal post for the Homecoming Game. The practico of decorating the I goal posts has long been a tradition for the Pep Club, but this is I the first time for this one on the new field to get wrapped I mummy-style. THE SACRED SANCTITY of some male lockers was violated by the Pep Club; the football players were somewhat surprised to find their lockers cleverly adorned with all soris of things. HOMEROOM 319 WAS AWARDED the Spirit Jug for its Homecom- ing door decoration of "Great Snoopy Predicts." The judging was done by Homecoming Committee and its sponsor, Mrs. Beth Anderson. I 19 lillili!AN AFTERNOON PARADE down Main Street gave the business district an opportunity to view the Homecoming Queen and her attendants. The afternoon activities included a pep rally for the student body at the band shell after school. The pep band provided the music while the cheersquad led with songs and cheers. Following the rally, the group proceeded down Main Street in a combination snake dance and parade. Homecoming Queen Debbie Politis and attendants Marcia Frigaard and Sandy Spatcher led the parade as the Pep Club girls formed a snake dance around the cars, escorting them down the street. THE PEP CLUB FLOAT, pulled by a black and orange '49 Chrysler, gave added distinction to the after school parade and snake danoe as it gave a ride to the pep band and "Roosevelt Rough Riders." SPONTANEOUS CHEERING AND YELLING were heard from the band shell as the student body gathered for a pep rally .after school. 20A stumge tjung kapppjied the ga . After much wheeling and dealing, a helicopter was chartered by the Home- coming Committee to bring Queen Deb- bie Politis and attendants Marcia Fri- gaard and Sandy Spatcher to the new field as a pregame surprise. The stands were filled to capacity and the crowd filled the night air with spirit and en- thusiasm as they cheered when the sur- prise descended onto the field. After the arrival of the queen and attendants, the marching band began the tradition- al flag-raising ceremony and the kick-off followed. Although the Cyclones fought valiantly, their battle was a futile one and they fell before the Rough Riders, 24-0. The evening was officially ended at midnight with the close of the Home- coming dance, "From Prairie to Pigskin." Another Homecoming tiara was tempo- rarily retired until another other year. TO THE SURPRISE AND DELIGHT of the homecoming crowd, a helicopter landed on the new field, delivering the queen and her attendants at the game. AT HALFTIME A SPECIAL FORMATION was done by the marching Sandy Spatcher were presented to the crowd by their escorts band as Queen Debbie Politis and attendants Marcia Frigaard and Danny Tweed, Alan Woodrow, and Brad Jacobson. - 21 t PtO w P'tfriAAJb tfy PcCjsl uv’ — ftOO+wlacj h w yuj THE COLD NIGHT AIR was deftly stirred by the fire batons of Gay Renee Neimann, feature majorette, in the halftime program especially prepared for the Homecoming crowd. "FROM PRAIRIE TO PIGSKIN" provided fast music with a pul- sating beat for those who had enough energy to dance after an exciting day of strange happenings, mixed emotions, and funny surprises. The excitement is over and Homecoming is now a memory, a thing of the past. For the seniors it is their last high school Homecoming and for the senior football players if is their last game for Ames High. These are the ones who gave their school another Homecoming and for them this cay can never be repeated or replaced; for them its memory will not die, but last forever. DESPITE A TREMENDOUS team effort, the Ames High Little Cyclones fell to the Roosevelt Rough Riders, 24-0. r PtXgcuW Qou hj QpcticheA 23PARENTS AT PARENTS' NIGHT were invited to a choir practice. Here Mr. Wiser explains the purpose of singing groups. THE ROAR from the cafeteria after Parents' Night pointed out the fact that the parents wished to meet each other and the teachers informally. Sample cafeteria meals also were displayed. STUDENTS GAVE THEIR TIME to direct traffic and parking and helped guide parents to classes during Parents' Night. With their help parents got to classes without problems. 24Ctoi tov, Pa tenfe’ Ntojfife cmcL cMbts The evening of November 23 witnessed a phe- nomenon—the whole student body flocking back to the school! It was quickly discovered to be AHS' annual Career Night, an event which gives students an opportunity to hear first-hand information on their prospective careers. After a homeroom session, students attended two 40-minute periods in small groups to hear representatives from about 90 pro- fessions. For the time spent at Career Night, stu- dents were dismissed at noon the following day for Thanksgiving vacation. The first Career "Night" was held in the spring of 1945, and like succeeding ones, lasted a day. It was later shortened to a half-day, with students hearing three speakers. Wherr the high school moved to its present site, the evening plan was adopted. A substitute for PTA meetings at AHS is the open house called "Parents' Night," held during Educa- tion week. The evening is important to the changing educational process by enlarging the communication between home and school. Parents followed their children's schedules, heard the objectives of each course, and then met informally in the cafeteria. CHAIRMAN of the Physic Department at Iowa State, Dr. D. J. Zaf- farano, gave a comprehensive picture of a career in physics through a short talk, then answered questions raised by his listeners. AFTER SUGGESTIONS were made to revise or drop Career Night, it was put to a general vote which indicated that students were entirely satis- fied with the present set-up. Dr. W. H. Thompson, professor of Industrial Relations, ISU, was among approximately 90 speakers who gave their time. 25Qty ccwk krfM QB fytestdfea y JACK COYLE ROD HANWAY RICK BLAKE "Eleven-thirty! Oh, no!" moaned a typical cam- paign worker at one of six houses all over the city, a student who more than likely still had homework to do and a research theme to finish for the follow- ing day. But nevertheless, lights burned even longer while felt pens squeaked on, and weary brains managed to crank out rfiore and more ideas. It was an idyllic Night-Before-The-Important-Morning for students with their hats in the presidential ring. Hoping for the post were Rick Blake and Bob Cook, Jack Coyle and Ed Huffman, Rod Hanway and Jack Morgan, Bob Penny and Ed Workman, Dick Pohl and Larry Lockhart, and Dan Smith and Merrill An- derson. December 1965 brought an important first to Ames High: the presidential primary. Student Coun- cil minutes for Monday, December, informed stu- dents that six pairs of seniors were running for student body president and vice-president, and it was apparent a run-off vote would be necessary. 26f-fOKiuAlJ, PG4UUJ, Qlndtlv witV plihufruj UUlO The following Friday, nominations were heard over the PA, and barely were they over when a flurry of posters and tags apeared on walls and students. Speculations resulting from a cross-sectional count of tag wearers brought alternate moans of despair or weak smiles of hope. The primary was slated for Tuesday, December 14. It was a crucial day ... by four o'clock the race was narrowed to three teams of contenders: Rod Hanway and Jack Morgan, Bob Penny and Ed Workman, and Dan Smith and Merrill Anderson. Then began the earnest drive—everything counted "for real" in those three days before the -election. Posters had to be serious and speeches had to be written with the right kind of appeal. Friday saw candidates looking more harried than usual, but trying to look nonchalant to cover up a very real sense of worry. An assembly, sparked by the arrival of an angel, Santa ( 1 and 2), and a wandering spotlight, kicked off election-day procedues. Voting went on at a brisk rate all day, and at ten of four Dave Wil- cox, Election Committee chairman, announced to a lobbyful of eagerly awaiting students: "Student body president and vice-president for second semester . . . Rod Hanway and Jack Morgan!"CAMPAIGN BUTTONS brightened up the election activities as the candidates attempted to think of a w'nning slogan or gimmick. BuifoaS cuk£ postm — OacI tb C htfxXtejwZag begiaS DURING CAMPAIGN WEEK the halls were literally plastered with posters that entertained students between classes. t —rNctKwcuj cut jj fiA iqcw who dote djyd JOko THE ELECTION COMMITTEE was in charge of voting procedures for the student body elections held in the lobby all day. To the student body, election week seems rather wild, hectic, and some- what ridiculous. But to the candidates, the election is taken quite seriously under that cover of a happy-go-lucky attitude. For the candidates and their supporters, it is a week of serious effort. Their purpose is to be elected because they believe in their school and the students, and have a sincere desire to make it a better school, a school the students can be proud of. They must decide how to present their ideas in a way that will be accepted by the majority. They work long and late hours, hoping that what they come up with will be better than the other candidates' approach. But when that all important Friday comes and the morn- ing assembly is over, the candidates breathe a sigh of relief and anxiously wait for the results, hoping that they come up on top. But win or lose, for them it v as one of the best weeks of the year. STUDENT BODY Vice-president Dave Wilcox an- nounced the results of the election over the sound system and the victorious and the defeated were left to look back on a week of memories. uuuuvSTUDENT COUNCIL overjaw the purchasing and decorating of the huge tree which appeared in the lobby this year.

Students give money to buy individual gifts for all the resident .. 30 A beautiful, huge pine tree was set in the lobby, and when its smell penetrated the whole school, students knew that once again it was Christmas time at AHS. A few Student Council members were appointed to carefully decorate it, and from then or. its cheery colored lights and ornaments reminded students that Christmas was just around the corner Before many days had passed, the Key Club placed three large barrels in the lobby, to receive food donations for needy families. Soon after these appeared homerooms donated money for gifts for the people at the County Home, a project sponsored each year by Girls' and Boys' Club. Christmas showed in other ways too . . . Language classes caroled newly learned songs in the halls, gifts were exchanged, and bits of gaiety continually popped up in classes—even the cafeteria served Christmas candy and cookies. The happiest moment of all came when the bell rang for the last time in 1965. JUGGLING evergreens is a familiar task every Christmas on the day when all the Christmas sprays arrive. They arc a project of Girls' Club; proceeds support club projects. THE FACULTY realized that Christmas was drawing near as they met with their families in the cafeteria for a Christmas party. 31"ChahpuA " fytfglotmed CWfitmos u4£otio u "Shahpur"—Christmas Formal 1-965. This one small evening, encompassing only a few hours of time, was over almost as quickly as it had begun, leaving behind it memories: of a guy, a girl, a dress, favorite flowers in a corsage, good dancing music—the things for all years, and for this year the things that separate it from all the others: the Great Hall, the decorations that added the Persian .torch: oil jars and lions, fences and torches. Mispronounced and wondered about, "Shahpur" was decided upon after a long discussion at a planning meeting. A map of Iran was produced and pored over, resulting in a true find: a beautiful sounding city named Shahpur. Even more exciting was that there was a palace there, and the tomb of Omar Khayyam who wrote the Rubaiyat. Here was a theme and there—at the Union— was the perfect high ceiling and beamed, panelled room which conjured up true feel- ings of a palace. ENCHANTED BY the Persian atmosphere created at "Shahpur,' couples were caught in its spell as they danced in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. EVERYONE ENJOYED an occasional stop at the candle lit tables where couples gathered to rest their tired feet and drink the punch served by the Union. More than five hundred at- tended the annual event. 32THE PUNCH LINE and tables were located in the South Ballroom, used in addition to Great Hall. to tcJies, (till oM Pe isfaw tou Jv SERENADED BY THE Jack Oates Orchestra, couples danced amid the Persian decorations of torches, oil pots, lions, and scrolls. 33CPfRJT (mJbioudts Cchooum fo Ceum "But WE HAVE to have a pool. It's tradition." Such was the cry heard in the planning of the SPIRIT Dance. Although this is the job of the junior staff members, almost all get into the act somehow. Everyone found count- ing ballots, choosing a tiara, and play- ing "Queen for a Day" far more excit- ing than the other everyday duties which were often neglected. As many lovely heads as there v ere on the SPIRIT staff, Neil Thompson, sports editor and part-time M.C., found the perfect practice crov ning subject at home with Mary Thompson, SPIRIT Sv eetheart for 1966.

Students either hopped on buses or begged rides from friends in order to make the two-mile trip from the Central auditorium to the, as yet, uncompleted high school complex. For a minority of students the problems of commuting discouraged attendance altogether, but for most, the obstacles were merely discouraging. Following this year's assemblies, classes began at 9:20, al- though some students returned as late as 10:20, depending, of urse, on how much car trouble they had. The opening assembly allows the student body to see itself as a whole, to meet new students, and to greet new teachers. Tom Richards was sworn in as student body president, and the program ended with a rush for the buses. Following the Homecom- ing assembly, the Girls' and Boys' Clubs scraped together $150 in order to import Dr. Marcus Bach. After speaking about his experiences v ith Dr. Schweitzer, Marcus Bach donated a book to the library, ate in the school cafeteria, and departed, having provoked much comment from the students. Each year students work on and participate in two elections. The visible outgrowth of this effort are STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT Tom Richards was sworn into office by Mr. Adams at the first assembly. One of Tom's responsibilities was opening each assembly by leading the Pledge of Allegiance. THE AHS CHEERLEADERS got the first pep assembly off the ground amid the action of The Spectres. 36 NEW STUDENTS AT AHS were officially welcomed at an assembly and greeted with enthusiasm by the student body. the election assemblies. These assemblies provide an opportunity to display creativity and to express student sentiment. Another student creation is the talent assembly. After auditioning student acts, and rehearsing a program, the Assembly Committee creates something memorable out of chaos. A year of assemblies finishes with the two awards assemblies. The first is the Fine Arts assembly. Here, scholars, musicians, and artists are given recognition for a year of hard work. It seems like small compensation, but the true satisfaction is not to be found in a gold pin or a paper certificate. Athletes receive their recog- nition at the next assembly. For those who are not directly involved in the awards assemblies, the long congratulations and the phrase, "I think these boys have done a fine job," grow tiring. Nevertheless, long though the assemblies may be, they serve their purpose. The year is finished, the assemblies are over, and the high school still has no auditorium, but it does have a stadium and a gym nearing completion. These will make assembling easier, but facilities do not make assemblies. Assemblies are still people, not places. 37 WHEN THE WEATHER cooperated, the cheer- leaders held pep assemblies on the mound.A WALK TO BOONE was completed the iiay of the Boor game to show spirit end support for the teem. The 16-mile welt toot four hours—end the hikers were in time for the geme. Ctudwts sltOtA d (jti uAJb taufi uv htCuuj utfujS One student to another leaving school: "Hey, call me as soon as you get home and let me know what's going on tonight, okay?" An affirmative was given and then there was something to look forward to. Away from the building, shedding formalities like school clothes, students came together and shared good times doing a variety of things, and put off homework usually until it was too late to do it. Who will forget sharing a cold bench at a football game, or the thrill of watching the winning basket go through the hoop, or the burn of pizza right out of the oven, or getting lost in the beat of music at a dance? And who can forget the ideas and situa- tions we encountered that helped make each of us more whole? BECAUSE OF OUR LACK of facilities, two home games were played in the after- noon at Clyde Williams field, ISU. One other home game was played on the Boone field, and the last one was played in our own new stadium. 38WITH THE CONTROVERSY raging over the war being fought in Vietnam, the talk given by AHS graduates Dick Gibson and Margy Shepherd was of special interest to many students. Dick was on leave from his support unit near Hue, Vietnam, and Margy was home after nearly a year in Saigon teaching English. Here, Dick shows a few of the items he brought from Vietnam. “LIVE'' MUSIC provided by several combos was an innovation which brought many more people to after-game parties this past year. All parties wete held in the cafeteria. Every homeroom co-sponsored at least one party. A RARE NIGHT when the gym was unused provided our 360- member Pep Club with one of the few opportunities it had to meet ' en masse." New cheers were practiced and old ones tried with pompoms, questions on uniforms and points were cleared, and coaches Duvall and Mendenhall spoke on their respective sports. The wrestling cheersquad also introduced their new cheers.------------- Writing a letter to Emelda or Tinh for Girls' or Boys Club A French Club cabinet meeting planning the Fete, Two GRA teams battling in a game of volleyball, A-Club gathering in the honors study hall— A million things to do through the clubs we belong to And sometimes we hate to give the time.

But then the "die is cast," and we relax In spite of the things we have left undone And always, the things we love to do The ones we live for: The rhythm of running, Watching the ball you pushed go through the hoop Or running free toward the goal line.

After the flurry and excitement of yast year's pres- idential campaign, the glory dimmed a bit as first semester president Tom Richards took over the week- in, week-out directing of the many responsibilities taken in by the Student Council. The council is de- signed to give students an idea of a scaled-down democratic government. Homeroom presidents who acted as representatives from thirty-seven home- rooms presented complaints and suggestions that kept the council constantly busy. One of the first actions of the Student Council last fall was to enact several of the ideas presented in Tom's platform. Formed to look into the possibilities of beautifying the mound and the cost of planting a windbreak by the stadium, was the Building and Grounds Committee. Incorporated into the Student Council this year as committees were the Girls' Club' and Boys' Club. Last year students voted to disband the clubs tem- porarily until facilities permitted mass meetings. The committees handled the activities of these organi- zations, which included foster children and several service projects. Also new this year was the Foods Council, though it was not directly under the supervision of the Stu- dent Council. Originated to improve the relationship between the cafeteria and students, it met once a month to approve menus and sample food. An amendment to the constitution limited to two semesters the number of terms a homeroom pres- ident can serve. Eight other committees carried out the main responsibilities and tasks handled by the Student Council; they included Assembly, Awards, Election, Citizenship, Social, Service, Finance, and this year Welcoming was put under the jurisdiction of Public Relations. 42 Informing students of the activities of their government is im- portant to our form of self-government.

Supporting a foster child is one of the most important activities of Girls' Club and Boys' Club alike. Boys' Club this year supported Tihn, who lives in Vietnam. When it was decided last year to temporarily dis- band Boys' and Girls' Clubs until facilities permitted mass meetings, their activities were undertaken by a specially appointed committee of Student Council. These consisted of the officers and homeroom repre- sentatives. The organizations still carried out many of their ser- vice projects. Early in the year drives were initiated to collect money for the support of their two foster children "adopted" by the clubs. With the first men- tion of Christmas, the residents of the County Home were remembered and each homeroom was given two patients for whom to buy gifts. These—often the only ones they received—were delivered personally by a delegation of students who sang carols and then de- parted. Other social events were planned to fill out a busy schedule. A LONG DRIVE for the March of Dimes was undertaken by the combined genius of the Girls' and Boys' Clubs. Collection points both at school and on Main Street brought in over $8C0, exceed- ing the goal hoped for by cabinets of the two clubs. FOOD FOR FANS who never seem to get enough to eat was offered at the Boys' Club refreshment stand at Ames High athletic events. 45FIRE SQUAD ENFORCES ttudcnt regulations.

Dr. Marcus Bach ate with the students in the cafeteria. Earlier in the morning, Dr. Bach spoke to the student body on the life of Albert Schweitzer. It takes a lot of little wheels to keep the machinery of a big school moving. Student government at Ames takes the united efforts of many students and pro- vides opportunities for many to serve the school. The Student Council and its committees, which in- clude many students not on the council, gives large numbers a chance to learn leadership. One of the institutions for which Ames High is noted is the Fire Squad. As the name implies, these boys help supervise fire drills, held regularly at ir- regular intervals. But they have many other duties, too: They report crowding in the cafeteria line, run- ning in the corridors, and other misdemeanors. Many other students serve the school as hall mon- itors, foregoing study halls to check passes and to show guests around the school. Under the super- vision of Mr. Dale Heideman, they do much to keep the halls quiet and orderly and to make the pass system work. And who could forget homeroom announcements! Almost every homecoming period found a long line of students and teachers waiting in the office to speak over the p.a. system. Announcements were strictly on an honor basis and often included pep songs and yells. 46■ TOM SIMMERING took charge of one of the six monitor posts where he checked the passes of migratory students, one of whom was Terry Wardle. 47 THE MONTHLY FIRE DRILLS were a winter curse and a fall joy. Disturbing classes and clogging exits seemed to be to tho delight of many students, but eventually everybody squeezed out, dragged back in, and classes began again.BEGINNING DRAMA STUDENTS seek the help of a more experi- enced hand in designing a set. ALL DRAMA STUDENTS must be familiar with the materials used in building a set. Lmmu tg, b'teW tSfotg: DtOhlfr StudwtS UtfVtfer tOw l L CONSTRUCTING SCENERY is one job in which everyone must participate. At least twelve hours of work must be done outside class to complete one of the requirements for Palm Club mem- bership . . . but it's not a work. 4« THE MANY HOURS spent rehearsing are rewarded by the satis- faction of a successful performance. Drama involves as much work both in and out of class as many full-credit courses, yet offers only one-fourth credit per semester. Even so, most drama students would never consider giving up the thrill of actual participation in all phases of theater work. This year, under the direction of Mr. Jerry Proffit, the Ames High Dramatics Department aimed for even higher goals than before. Of course, much class time had to be spent constructing scenery, but there was also a much more intense study of plays and playwrights, especially those chosen for performance this year. During the "recovery period" between the the closing curtain of one play and the tryouts for the next, advanced drama students had time to work on interpretive scenes in class while the beginning students worked on such things as scene and costume designing.

Rap Epstein, Jeff Fredericks, Curtis Christensen, Mark Hamilton Androdes and the Lion, written by George Bernard Shaw in 1912, is based on the legend of a Roman slave in the first century A.D. who removed a thorn from the paw of a lion. Shaw uses this legend as the basis for a farce-of-ideas in which he gives his views on Christianity, autocratic imperialism, and the value of life. In this exaggerated comedy he satirizes the actions of government and the superficial expressions of Christianity which are generally accepted today as correct and official. Shaw tells us that we must re- form society before we can reform ourselves, and that if we had been Romans, we would have done as the Romans did. He implies at the end of the play, through the arm-in-arm waltz of Androdes and the lion, that the proper combination for the future is the strength and force of the lion plus the love and un- derstanding of the Roman slave. Androdes and the Lion opened the drama depart- ment's 1965-66 season as the senior class play. It provided the opportunity to experiment with many new ideas. Revolving, impressionistic sets, armor and weapons made of celastics were a few of the ex- citing innovations. 50ANDROCLES AND THE LION ended on a note of joy as the Lion (Rodney Drake) and Androcles (Jeff Cotfrill) do an arm-in-arm waltz, which symbolized Shaw's hope for the future. MR. PROFFITT offers constructive criticism to drama students after a run-through of the senior class play. LAVINIA (Jane Peterson) pleads the cause of Christianity to the Captain (Steve Pepper) in a scene which is perhaps the most moving in the play. 51 ."WE'RE NOT a particularly affectionate family, are we?"

The AHS drama department proved that it is possible with their remarkable production of Jean Anoulh's Antigone. A modern play based on an ancient Greek Sophiclean classic, Antigone is a powerful play with a deep message. It is the tragedy of Antigone, a strong-minded girl who refuses to accept any compromise in the standards she has set for her life, and the tragedy of her Uncle Creon, who is forced to let her die for her convictions. All the others in the cast are caught up in the web, and, in the end, Creon is left alone to bear his burden as ruler of Thebes. Anouilh's own philosophy was ex- pressed by the Chorus, who appeared in critical moments to keep the audience from getting too involved in the play to recognize its full meaning. The performance was supplemented both even- ings by a discussion afterwards under the leadership of a college professor well-versed on the subject of the play. It was a wonderful opportunity not only for the drama students, but for all those who saw it, to explore the deeper meaning of tragedy. MARK HAMILTON had his hands full with the complicated lights plan required for Antigone. He found his feet useful, too, in more critical moments. 53 FOR EVERY ACTOR on stage, several trusty technicians wore needed backstage to insure proper lighting, make up costumes, etc.VoccJL Music ettcou toges s4- Vocal music, despite all the noise it makes, is a very serious part of many students' lives. Although its participants may grumble before, during, and after practice, when the curtain swishes open and hundreds of eyes focus on a robe- filled stage, there is only one thing to be done, and that is to give the di- rector, Mr. Al Wiser, everything he asks for, and more if possible. The hours of practice become a part of the sub- conscious, a mere foundation on which to build the evening's performance. Each person loses his individuality and for a while identifies with one of the many performing groups at Ames High. The climax passes, the program has been well done, and work is rewarded with applause. Anxiety is replaced by relief and satisfaction. Everything is full, and warm, and wonderful. This entire process of producing a beautiful sound is above all enjoyable, just as it should be. For most students, music will become a fulfilling part of life, and for others, it may be the fulfillment of life itself. Yet, for all, music will remain - something alive and real. GIRL'S GLEE MEMBERS were able to sing all music marked S.S.A., and had they been called upon to do so, they could have sung S.A.S., A.S.S., A.A.S., A.S.A., S.A.A., S.S.S., and even A.A.A. WITH JUST ENOUGH music for approximately one-half of the vo- calists, the combined groups presented several exciting pieces with brass and percussion accompaniment. Mr. Wiser's ability to mouth words proved to be invaluable. Adding to the excitement, one of the fully populated risers collapsed at the student assembly. But no one was injured, and only the riser was temporarily retired.THE WOI TV STUDIOS provided an unusual backdrop for an ap- pearance of the Ames High Madrigal, which was probably the most active group of the vocal music department. Members included MARGARET FUNG, choir accompanist, proved to be very effective at getting the choir on pitch and keeping them there both during practice and performance. MR. WISER'S CHILDREN always seemed to be where the action was. At one time or another, all the members of his family dropped in to watch "Dad" direct one of his singing groups. Cyndic Shadlc, Janis Hiserofe, Dan Uhl, Bill Sandvc, Cathy Wood, Vicki Voelkcr, Dee Dreeszcn, Bill Fredericks, Steve Pepper, and Nanci Looft. Not pictured were Dave Wilcox and Vicki Albright. 55AN ANNUAL EVENT a» Ames High is the choir reunion, which is held during Christmas vacation. As usual, most of those who at- tended were present choir members or recent graduates, but there was a surprising number of older graduates who returned to sing old and new songs, visit old friends, and remember how good the choir sounded back in 19—. A CAPPEILA CHOIR is the zenith of vocal music at Ames High and is ac- cordingly a versatile and talented group, which is capable of digest- ing more imposing compositions. 56 Bviqfvi IjMuIs ckoto itv (tuA lXeJ jtnocfeoe session Although it is difficult to say which single event was the most outstanding for the vocal music department, un- doubtedly the most impressive was the brief visit of Dr. Jean Berger, world- renowned composer and choral direc- tor. Dr. Berger brought some of his own music for the choir to sing, and most of it became a permanent part of the Ames High vocal music library. Al- though Berger's music is "straightfor- ward," as he describes it, it is ex- tremely difficult. For nearly an hour, he pounded out the notes on the piano, as the choir fumbled along as best it could. To hear a man explain his purpose in writing a piece and what effect he is trying to achieve seemed to make everything much more mean- ingful. Whatever the explanation, the choir lost itself in the vivacious per- sonally of Dr. Berger, and the period was over all too soon. AFTER WEEKS of anxious waiting, the choir per- formed for and worked with Dr. Jean Berger. 57 NOT BEING ABLE to contain themselves this Christmas, the choir members just had to go caroling. M-Ctate positions won by industrious yOuttCj mulSuCIomS MIKE McCOWEN, Sandy Spatcher, Ann Hcmstreot, and Ron Larson were members of one of the quartets selected to appear on the Mary Jane Chinn Show. DAVE WILCOX, Vicki Voelkcr, Danny Uhl, and Nanci Looft were members of the first Ames quartet to be formed and the last to be accepted. THE COMBINED CHORUS and orchestra performed The Last Words of David with the aid of Dr. Decker, who served as director and at times mediator. In every activity there are those who take a greater interest than others and those who are willing to spend more time in perfecting their abilities. In vo- cal music many of these people try out for All-State. This involves hours of practice and great determination. Final- ly the day of tryouts arrives. It is too late to do anything but hope that the lemon you have been sucking on all morning will make your voice 58sound better than it actually is. Singing before a judge is an experience never to be forgotten. Hardly able to stand on two trembling legs and hold on to music at the same time, you sing as best you can, and then it is over, at least for some. For those who are fortunate or unfortunate enough, as the case may be, to be recalled—that is, neither re- jected nor accepted—the same experience is to be relived. Then come the final postings and screams of joy and anguish. After the judges' inability to distinguish between a G and a G has been suf- ficiently exposed, the whole ordeal soon becomes a vague memory, except for those who have won and will attend the two day All-State Music Festival held in Des Moines during Thanksgiving vacation. For them the process of losing one's voice over a period of forty-eight hours is climaxed by the evening performance of the orchestra, band, and chorus. The thrill, however, quickly passes, and soon only the memory remains.ALTHOUGH IT MAY APPEAR that the band is performing at half time, they are actually playing two fast-moving games of Red rover. "Left, right, left . . . No, no!" shouted Mr. Day through his megaphone. The Ames marching band had done it again—half a formation was in shambles. This season, 138 marchers and Mr. Day wondered if performances were worth fighting through mud and frost to perfect. But the magic must have been in the hats, because when in full uniform and in front of a crowd, performances came off with pre- cision. Especially memorable last fall was the recog- nition of the James Bond rage with the band form- ing the numerals 007 and playing the theme from the movie Goldfinger. Others included intricate geomet- ric designs, which were fascinating to watch, a trib- ute to Hiram Covey, the traditional Homecoming drills, and an interesting rendition of the 1812 Overture. Providing a challenge to the drill arranger was the addition of orange and brown uniforms, which were worn by the sophomore members of the band. They were purchased from Bov ling Green Univer- sity, and were used along v ith the usual black ones. By the time the North Wind blew them back into the school, it was time to audition and tune up for concert band, which began its season of pop and classical music soon after. At this stage, class dis- tinction becomes more evident, with sophomores participating in sophomore band, and juniors and seniors in concert band. Even though this is the genera! rule, there v ere a few sophomores in con- cert band, and upperclassmen are permitted in soph- omore band. Through auditions and try-outs, 85 students were chosen for concert band, and 56 for sophomore band. Spring brought out the marchers once more for the annual Veishea parade at ISU. Despite a seem- ing abundance of ten fingers, left hands, and extra left feet, the band is known to be tops in any form in which it appears. Majorettes are: Front: Gayle McKenna, Peggy Shadle, Debbie Politis, Margaret Stohlmeyer; Second: Claudia Dubois, Tcrric Craig, Debbie Baldner, Diane Backous; Third: Gloria Constantine, Randi Rolf, Gay Renee Neimann, Diane Erickson, Vicki Albright. 601 SS-jDtfiCG hictA rfuitcj tUM spectotois 007 EVEN had a chance to visit Ames High in the personage of Dave Wilcox. The villian Bill Sandve kidnapped cheer- leader Muriel Foreman, but Dave res- cues her as the band played on. CATCHING THE ATTENTION of the audience, were these wedges, introduced by Mr. Homer Gartz, assistant band director. They were a new addition to the band's repertoire, providing an entertaining change from the usual drills the band performs. 61 MARCHING BAND FORMS the tradi- tional AHS while playing Loyalty to end halftime entertainment. i BillTHE 57-PIECE sophomore band rehearses under the direction of Mr. Richard D.

With the help of Mr. Richard Day, the di- rector, they seemed to do a pretty good job. The re- sults of long periods of practice were heard during concert band performances and the one sophomore band concert. Strains from songs like "Caravan" and "Night Train" were heard on Tuesdays coming from the orchestra room. It was the Stage Band, which met under the direction of Mr. Homer Gartz. The Pep Band performed admirably at all home basketball games. THIS YEAR'S BAND officers were: Jack Morgan, vice president; Cathy Wood, secretary-treasurer; Alan Woodrow, president. THE SMALL PERCUSSION section made the most noise. The six members were,- Top: Jim Sucher, Dave Bliss,- Middle: Nancy Mosier, Mike Foreman; Bottom: Whit Ayres, Dave Kuhn.

DEIDRE PEGLAR, another accomplished violinist, also made All-State. Floating up from the basement on Monday, Thurs- day and Friday came the sounds of an orchestra— sometimes. That is, when they weren't playing at the String Clinic with Fort Dodge or during a fire drill. The String Clinic was held on Tuesday, Novem- ber 16, under the direction of the guest conductor, Mr. W. R. DeCota. After rehearsing all day, the com- bined Ames High-Fort Dodge orchestra gave a con- cert in Great Hall in the Memorial Union. The 21- piece string orchestra also played at the first drama production. On January 27, the full orchestra gave its debut concert with the Central Junior High orches- tra. In the spring the annual Pops Concert was pre- sented with all the free popcorn one could eat. Under the direction of Mr. Dean Moberg, the orchestra performed admirably througout the year. 67 YOU HAVE TO be quick to turn pages during a fast song. If takes practice and the members of the Ames-Fort Dodge String Clinic got lots of if as they rehearsed all day before their concert on November 16."This is a reminder to all French (German, Latin, Spanish) Club members not to forget the meeting tonight," said the voice over the PA, and dedicated language students took note. Each language taught at Ames High has its own club. The goal of the organization is to give its students a taste of the culture which produced the language. With help from the language department at the University, an interesting variety of speakers and programs is obtained. Language clubs and their activities fill out the skeletons of the language learned in the classrooms. R tatOK bQMjquuub ypxw fj(yo Urito Club Latin Club members sponsor one really big ac- tivity each year—an annual springtime orgy called the Roman Banquet, which features roast pig as a main course, served by bona-fide slaves. Members come draped in sheets more or less resembling togas and lounge on someone's lawn until the thing is over. Sponsor Mr. Ripp usually outdoes his students in both costume and consumption. TWO YEARS IN URUGUAY gave sophomore Mary Jane Scholtes an enviable command of Spanish, and much spare time there gave her the opportunity to become an accomplished guitar player. She Ueatcd visitors to the Spanish Club Christmas party with several of her favorite Spanish songs. INSPIRATION COMES in all forms, as Latin Club officers Susan Bunce, Jean Fleig, and Bob Hamilton could verify for anyone who wondered where plans for the Roman Banquet originated. 68 THOUGH THEY DIDN'T supply seat-gripping entertainment, the slides were enjoyed by members of the adult education Spanish classes who were guests of Spanish Club for their first meeting. SALVAGING CHRISTMAS decorations are Spanish Club officers (left), Kathy Brunia, vice-president; Muriel Foreman, president; Nancy Kcrar, secretary; and Kathy Svec, treasurer. BREAKING FOUR LARGE PINATAS was the highlight of the Spanish Club Christmas party. YoQjOmAjOu QUmCu tauqldv students Htiitu d n x Spanish Club cabinet decided this year to do away with the traditional monthly meetings and have in- stead four special ones divided throughout the year. The first meeting featured Dr. McVicker from ISU, showing slides of Mexico; later was a Christmas potluck followed by pinata breaking and Mexican dances. Other activities were a Mexican dinner, and an end-of-the-year picnic. 69German Club was continually bustling with activi- ties covering a wide area of interest. Slides on Germany sparked the first meeting, and the club gained momentum with a pancake supper held at the Congregational Church, door-to-door caroling at Christmas, and a meeting of folk dancing taught by Dr. and Mrs. Metzler from the University.

The week begins when assignments are given. Student reporters rush to get their interviews and gather the necessary facts. Ther start the long hours of writing and revising—until the writer is exhausted. The article is hurriedly typed out on the yellow news- print and given to copyreaders who correct it for grammatical errors and revise it for simpler reading. When the final draft of the article is finished, it is measured for the layout. After the layout is complete and the fillers are added for the extra space, the Ames Tribune sets the page. Proofreading is done Tuesday morning by late-bird students. The end of the v eek is when the Web appears in the paper and students begin working on their next publica- tion. Despite the impression given, journalism isn't al- ways all work and no fun, and the satisfaction comes when you see your article in print. ON THURSDAYS the Web room roared with activity as journalism were sometimes short and contusion seemed to be everywhere, but students frantically rushed to finish writing their stories.

Their practices Nick Judge, Mr. Cole, sponsor. Marsh a Armstrong, Ruth Bockhoven, paid off when the team went to out-of-town meets. Byfwe sto v and thought an d udlope l in debate The Debate Club, sponsored by Mr. Cole, meets three times weekly for its workout with words. The debaters spend most of their time doing research on their point of view and polishing their discourses in preparation for meets with debaters from other Iowa high schools. The team is divided into two sides, the affirmative and the negative, which debate against their negative counterpart at meets. A judge keeps score and at the end of the meet announces the winner on the basis of the number of points earned, rather than by who is most convincing in pleading his or her case. There are also several individual events, such as, persuasive speaking and original and interpretive oratory. Probably the contest which most exemplifies debate is the extemporaneous speech, which shows the clarity of thought and expression that debate re- quires of its participants. DARIO ZAFFARANO WAS an affirmative debater on the resolution: Resolved: That the federal government should adopt a program of compulsory arbitration in labor-management disputes in basic in- dustries. Debate topics are assigned by the National Forensic League, the national organization for debaters. 76- The Library Club at AHS is charged with helping the head librarian with the routine procedures in- volved in keeping the library functioning. They help students at the checkout desk, return borrowed books to the shelves, send out the much beloved fine notices to those errant souls who fail to return books on time, and make a semiannual attempt to explain the rules of the library to the student body. Without the assistance of these devoted students, conditions in the library would be much worse than we can imagine. Our library has been graced this year with the presence of Mrs. Clara Hoover, the new head libra- rian. Her main goal has been to preserve the library as a quiet place for concentrated study. Library regu- lations have been revised and stiffened to achieve this goal. During second semester students were issued special library passes which had to be shown before they could go to the library during study hall. A rack of popular magazines was placed in study hall so that purely recreational reading might be done there. Mrs. Hoover has supplemented the traditional sophomore library instruction with book talks and class visits. MRS. DICKINSON, former head librarian who retired last spring, was invited to the Library Club Christmas party. If gave Mrs. Hoover and Mrs. Dickinson an opportunity to compare notes. Llfnd uj Club kelps v, JAN ZOBER, president of Library Club, and Peggy Trembly, secre- their study halls. They also have evening meetings to organize tary, prove that this is an organization in which even the officers schedules, have to work. Members work two to three hours a week during 77HMMM.

DECA, co-op, nurses training, O.E., and cadet teach- ing are all part of Ames High's work experience pro- gram. These programs give students experience in teaching and in retail, office, and hospital work. Members of AHS's Future Homemakers of America, a national organization, are not just cookie and cake bakers but have a number of other ideas and projects on their minds. Meetings are spent with guest speak- ers or planning and carrying out Christmas parties, ninth grade parties, and various other projects. A still young organization at Ames High is the Electronics Club. Trips to the WOI studio and trans- mitter, their amateur radio station, and sorting and selling a large donation of radio parts have kept them busy. 78 SCOTT LISTENS INTENTLY to Bill's explanation of the warp and woof.

Clicking cameras and the smell of developing solutions continually poured from the science v ing of the building this year. Responsible for both as Science Seminar. Science Seminar is a small group composed of students and a few adults, who take up the opportunity to receive extended study in areas not covered in regular science courses. A single topic is studied in detail each year; this year they undertook photography. The step-by-step pro- cesses involved were investigated in great depth, when they met for several hours every Thursday night. Each member also does an individual project on a topic of his own choice. Near the end of the year, information on these is compiled and presented as both a written and an oral report. A few of these projects were taken to Des Moines to be entered in the annual Science Fair held in Veterans' Auditorium. AS CRAZY AS IT MIGHT LOOK, by taking a picture of a perforated sheet of cardboard, you can sec how steadily you hold a camera. 80 Varsity "A" Club, an organization of major letter winners, was reorga- nized this year as a service club for benefit of the school and communi- ty.

At an organization meeting in the fall the following officers were se- lected to conduct the business of the club meetings and spearhead adopt- ed programs: Merrill Anderson, president; Dave Coy, vice-president; and Neil Thompson, secretary-treas- urer. Under the supervision of Mr. Ray Smalling, faculty sponsor and director of athletics for Ames High, "A" Club raised over $200 manag- ing the Ames High-Waverly Sports night December 28. The money went to the Page Memorial fund and helped defray the expenses of the athletic department. 1965-46 "A" CLUB OFFICERS were Dave Coy. vice president; Merrill Anderson, president, and Neil Thompson, secretary-treasurer.

Making a trio of squads this year, along with the football-basketball squads, was the newly formed wrestling cheersquad, which could be seen at the meets of one of Ames High's newest sports. The addition of this group brought the number of girls on all cheersquads to 26. Most memorable this past year were the announce- ments made by the squads over the PA system. Tales from the "Cyclone Storybook" as well as clever songs and poetry attracted the rapt attention of the stu- dents by adding spark to monotonous daily routine. Individual cheerleaders kept students up to the min- ute on results of meets in all phases of athletic ac- tivity. Black, orange, orange, black, Amc High fight backlPep 0cjgkMdtes QMjthu iO hv, Spbut In its second year as an all-school organization. Pep Club showed definite signs of revision with simplifica- tion of many of its rules, especially in the points system. Each girl was required to earn seventy-five points during football season and one hundred and fifty points during basketball season in order to re- main in Pep Club. Points were earned by attending football and basketball games and wrestling meets and by doing a variety of things stretching from cookie baking to float designing. The largest evidence of the club was, of course, when it appeared en masse at games, but other things also showed that it existed. During the year, to show support, many of the athletes found their lockers covered with black and orange crepe paper, paper balloons and fish, and basketballs. Many days after school you could see a large crowd of starving people gathered in the lobby buying cookies and other goodies at the Pep Club bake sales. On Wednesday nights girls often stayed for hours to paint signs for future athletic events. Pep Club also was in charge of the hoop used at each home game to show spirit and high hopes. At Homecoming the team float was a product of Pep Club, and much of the rest of the parade consisted of snake-dancing Pep Club girls. FOR ONCE, all 325 Pep Club girls Had enough room for themselves and their pompoms and their purses and even their boyfriends, had they been allowed to sit in the Pep Club section. Students had one whole side of the bleachers at the ISU field to watch games played there because of the lack of our own stadium. 84 ESPECIALLY GO GO GOII One of our most important CIC games was played with Marshalltown in their gym. Last out, Merrill Anderson was greeted by a shattered hoop and excited cheering of Ames fans. Buses and cars brought many Pep Club girls to games. Color Day, a new observance this year, helped to generate enthusiasm for the Mar- shalltown game, which, had we won, would have meant a tie for CIC first place. All Pep Club girls wore their uniforms and most other girls wore something orange or black. Boys were encouraged to wear school colors as well. Some even went so far as to dye jeans orange. Many of those out for wrestling, swimming, basketball, or track donned their warm-up jackets. Each homeroom was given a roll of paper to make a sign for the game. The school had never before seen an array of posters like those on that Wednesday before the game. At a pep assembly Thursday night. Homeroom 201 was announced winner with their "CIC Page from the Cyclone Coloring Book." Color Day achieved its purpose of generating excitement for the game by send- ing five busloads of fans to Marshalltown. HAIRSPRAY APPLIED TO CHALK has amazing results. Jo Malone and Christie Love'discovered that by spraying their chalfc poster with hairspray that it wouldn't smear, at least not much. Color Day provided the occasion. PUT A TIGER IN YOUR TANK!

Swsef) Idyldkglds wuuukcj season The 1965 Cross Country team was the most suc- cessful in Ames' three-year history of fall track. Fighting off the disabilities of plaguing injuries and Coach Hi Covey's illness, the Cyclones brought home three championships, whipping a combined total of 42 teams in a 3-2 season. Mr. Merle Garman, interim coach, and four returning lettermen provided the impetus to the Ames success. Led by Dick Pohl's first place, Ames dethroned defending champ Marshalltown to win the CIC Mile Team Race. September 18th. The following week the Little Cyclones ran away with the State AAA Mile Team Race, again toppling Marshalltown for the title. The Cyclones left the cinders in favor of the long- er cross country races over golf courses at the Augustine Invitational run October 9, in Des Moines. Ames placed second to Roosevelt D.M. in a field of thirteen teams. An inspired effort by several Ames athletes October 16 insured the CIC Cross Country championship. Dick Pohl stumbled at the finish and settled for second place as Neil Thompson took third to lead the Cyclone attack. Ames then finished a disappointing fourth at the State AAA Cross Country meet, but it could hardly take the luster off the rest of the season. The sweep of mile team races was the first ever, and the Conference Cross Country title became the second in three years. NEIL THOMPSON AND MARSHALL THOMAS added experienced strength to the team. Thompson placed third at the Conference Cross Country and fifth at the State AAA Mile Team race. Thomas finished third at the Conference Mile race and seventh at the CIC Cross Country and the Augustine Invitational. 87 1965 SEASON'S RECORD HEAD COACH CECIL SPATCHER enjoys a break in a busy classroom schedule at a surprise party in the teachers' lounge.

Mike A winning football tradition returned to AHS in 1965 after a four year drought. The Little Cyclones, who used to terrorize the Central Iowa Conference, put away the memories of the past and laid the groundwork for a new gridiron dynasty. Ames com- pleted a 5-2-2 season behind fine coaching and great senior leadership. Mike Bliss and Tom Sim- mering were chosen as All-Conference, and Bliss and Ed Wilson served as co-captains. Tim Healy and Dave Kinker made the second CIC team and Ed Huffman and Ron Watson placed on the third. Ames defeated the D.M. Tech Engineers in the season's opener at Drake Stadium, 14-12. Disregard- ing a handful of first game mistakes, the Little Cy- clones' performance was no less impressive than the new, bright orange Ames uniforms. Tim Healy scored touchdowns in the second and third periods. Runs by Bliss, Cook, and Healy were instrumental in sus- taining the two touchdown drives. The Cyclones led 7-6 at halftime and 14-6 after the third quarter. The Engineers battled back to score with minutes left but failed to make the conversion. Ames left the field victorious by the margin of Mike Bliss' con- version points. Much credit gees to the interior line that outcharged Tech despite a 24-pound disadvan- tage. Ames met the Marshalltown Bobcats September 17th, in the first taste of CIC action. The first half v as all Marshalltown as the 'Cats' offense pushed Ames all over the field. The Bobcats scored in the second quarter and took a 7-0 halftime lead into the locker rooms. A key stop by Rick Blake at the one- yard line and fumble recoveries ended other threats. But the Orange and Black were a different team the second half as they stopped the Bobcat offense cold. Mike Bliss capped a scoring drive with a minute left and tied the game, 7-7, with his conversion attempt. Both teams dejectedly left the field as time ran out. Costly injuries to Doug Shadle, Bill Steil, and Roger Stucky provided a stiff test for Ames depth. Bliss and Chris Davis lead the play. Pass protection such as this was largely responsible for Ames' aerial success in the 14-7 decision over the Black Raiders. DESPITE A FIERCE RUSH, Watson gets the kick away as Stucky heads downficld. Watson, a junior end, shared the kicking chores with Dave Dresser and Mike Bliss. WITH THREE WOULD BE TACKLERS behind him, Tim Healy picks his way through the West Waterloo defense.

Beman gets assistance from a block by Tom Richards as Ed Wilson works himself free of defenders. Wilson, Steil, Dresser, and Watson were favorite receivers all year. Bdi S (JUtA SUuftifi lUtCj (WMj Ames' first "home game" was played in Boone against the Oskalcosa Indians. The Little Cyclones ran their season record to 2-0-1 with an impressive vic- tory, 26-0. A strong defense and a diversified offense spelled defeat for the Indians. Tim Healy again pro- vided the fans with exciting, high-stepping end runs, scoring twice from 10 and 5 yards. Wilson's one yard plunge added to Healy's first touchdown gave Ames a 13-0 half time advantage. Ames added another 13 points in the second half on Mike Bliss's 4 yard run and Healy's second touchdown after Bob Cook's 80-yard run with an intercepted pass in the fourth quarter. The defensive unit, led by Roger Stucky, Ed Huffman, and Tom Simmering, kept the visitors in check most of the time. Mike Bliss turned in an- other first-rate performance both ways and the play of Cook, Wilson, and Healy was spectacular offen- sively. THE WORRIED EXPRESSIONS of the cheerleader do not, oddly enough, stem from the lack of fan jupport in the background. Lack of facilities at the high school forced tv o games at Iowa State University. The cheerleaders instead react instinctively to a tense game situation. cliOS v 0 1 1st ac tfeOhv Ames suffered its first defeat at the hands of the Newton Cardinals October 1st. The Cardinals thought they were the best team that day and had Ames convinced of it at the outcome. Newton scored first but Ames came rolling back on a 50-yard pass from Bob Cook to Tim Healy. The pass netted three yards and Healy covered the final 47 himself through the heart of the Newton defense. Bliss put Ames ahead at the half with his conversion kick, 7-6. But a second half letdown, prompted by fumbles and bad punts, resulted in two Newton scores. Ames failed to move the ball and ended up on the short end of a 19-7 score. This defeat dropped the Little Cyclones from the Conference race. Bliss played another steady game for the Cyclones and was the only spectacular performer for Ames. A downhearted team tasted de- feat and trudged into the locker room as the gun sounded. BUSS KICKS OFF as the retf of the team prepares to swarm downfield. Reliable place kick- ing, sometimes a forgotten as- pect of football, can mean the difference between victory and defeat. 90"THE KEY to a good offense is a good defense," expounds one philosopher on football. Here the Little Cyclones' defensive unit readies itself for action. Individual highs for the season were Tom An overworked defensive unit has to be given most of the credit for an Ames victory over West Waterloo, 14-6. Ames scored twice in the first half, then hung on to win in spite of a vicious ground as- sault by the Wahawks. Rich Burns, starting his first game at linebacker, intercepted a Waterloo pass and returned it to the enemy 26-yard line. Two plays later Tim Healy scored from 20 yards around left end. Moments later Dave Kinker blocked a punt deep in Waterloo territory. Ron Watson scooped it up at the five and ran for Ames' second touchdown. Key defensive plays by Kinker, Bliss, and Huffman kept West from scoring more than once in the second half. Ames defeated the East Sioux City Black Raiders, 14-7. Mike Beman wasted no time getting the Cy- clones rolling. Ames scored on a 58 yard pass from Beman to Bill Steil. An Ames fumble set up the only Sioux City score. The Black Raiders drove 27 yards to pay-dirt, but Ames bounced back with a 63-yard scor- ing drive. A 34-yard pass to end Ron Watson sus- tained the drive and Chris Davis slashed the final four yards for a 14-7 lead. The fourth quarter saw a deter- mined Ames defense stop three Sioux City drives. Ed Wilson recovered a fumble, Mike Bliss intercepted a pass, and Dave Kinker dumped the Raiders' quarter- back twice. The Little Cyclones' second tie came October 22 at Boone. Ed Wilson started the scoring, running six yards off tackle early in the first quarter. A wide extra point attempt left Ames with a 6-0 lead. Boone retaliated with a touchdown march, scored in the sec- ond quarter, and went ahead, 7-6, at the half. An efficient, ball control offense gave the Toreadors a third period touchdown but Boone's extra point also failed. With three minutes remaining Mike Beman came off the bench and engineered Ames' last scor- ing opportunity. Passes to Dresser and Watson in- creased the Ames momentum, and Beman plunged for six points from the one yard line. Bliss kicked the PAT with 53 seconds remaining. Boone insured the 13-13 tie by running out the clock. The Toreadors still have the bell, but Ames received a well deserved ovation for the inspired comeback. Simmering'» 23 tackles against Boone and Ed Huffman's 20 against West Waterloo. But more important than individual efforts was the high spirited gang tackling that highlighted most of the games. CARRYING THE BALL like a loaf of bread, Tim Healy attempts an end run. But the fleet halfback is stopped for a rare loss when blocking by Mike Bliss and Bill Beckman breaks down. MIKE BEMAN ATTEMPTS to skirt the right end late in the Newton game, but two Cardinals have other plans in mind.

Moments later Mike Beman completed down drive. Five different boys scored touchdowns as Ames easily defeated the Grinnell Tigers October 29. A recovered fumble set up a one-yard touchdown run by Tim Healy. Ames followed with short scoring runs by Bliss, Cook, and Wilson. Ron Watson picked up a punt blocked by Dana Warg and streaked into the endzone with the Cyclone's last tally making the score 35-0. A strong defensive effort combined with the spectacular offense to hold the Tigers scoreless. Tim Healy played his best game, collecting 160 yards rushing. With the victory Ames finished third behind Marshalltown and Boone. A crowd of 4000 homecoming fans came out to see Ames inaugurate the new stadium and about 3500 went home disappointed. No doubt the Little Cyclones were a bit dejected themselves as Roose- velt rolled over Ames 24-0. The powerful Riders, up and down all season, were up this time when Ames was down. Mike Beman completed five straight pass- es late in the game to provide the only Ames threat, while Roosevelt mixed running and passing effec- tively to score four times. It was the only time all season the Cyclones failed to score, and Roosevelt managed more points than any other opponent. BOB COOK, (21), watches as Healy attempts to pick up first down yardage.

Although Christmas vacation means fun, freedom, and the culmination of a long holiday season to most people, it marks the beginning of the indoor campaign for Ames High trackmen. Starting last December 26th, the Little Cyclones set out with their goal the defense of the 1965 state champion- ship. The Cyclones practice nightly at the Iowa State University indoor track. Practice sessions usually last no longer than an hour, and Coach Covey cred- its any extra running the boys do as responsible for Ames' noted success in track. Mr. Merle Garman offered his services, as in cross-country, as assistant coach. The return of fifteen lettermen raised optimism as to this year's team success, but a big hurdle loomed ahead. At Ames a season is not considered a suc- cess unless either or both the state championships are won. Ames gets its first taste of action annually at an Iowa Federation meet in Des Moines which precedes the Indoor championship by a week. The outdoor season, consisting of eight meets, follows around the first of April. Lettermen returning from the 1965 State Cham- pionship team were; Merrill Anderson, Dean Barn- hart, Mike Bliss, Dean Craig, Tim Healy, Joe In- gvoldstad, Larry Lockhart, Jack Morgan, Dick Pohl, Doug Shadle, Bill Steil, Marshall Thomas, Neil Thomp- son, Mike Woodward, and Dave Younie. 94 ALMOST ENGULFED by a circle of trackmen.

Competing with basketball and swimming for popularity as a winter sport, wrestling's new look featured an expanded home meet schedule which in- cluded the Central Iowa Conference meet, and a new cheersquad to promote interest and enthusiasm for the sport. Coach Jack Mendenhall constructed a team around five experienced letfermen: Howie Randles, Dave Coy, Ed Huffman, and Pat and Don McCullough, transfers from Valley, West D. M. Mr. Bob Impecoven served as assistant coach. Ames opened at home against Urbandale and suf- fered a 24-20 defeat, which could have been remedied had the Cyclones owned a 95-lb. wrestler. Two more losses to Lincoln D. M. and Carroll Kuemper ensued before Ames took care of Ankeny, 24-22. The Cyclones' dismal fourth place at the conference meet was some- what offset two nights later as Ames defeated Marshall- town 28-16. The Little Cyclones were almost ready to break loose prior to losses to Waverly and North D. M., and finally produced the necessary momentum with a 40-15 victory at Nevada. Perry fell 30-16, and con- ference runner-up Grinnell was beaten on the mats 21-19.

Nine Ames' wins insured a 35-10 storming of Tama-Toledo before the Cyclones entered the Corn- ing Invitational. Ed Huffman won the only champion- ship for Ames, but the Cyclones placed fifth among 16 teams. Ames closed its dual meet schedule with a convincing 25-17 victory over conference champion Newton. Then the season started again. Ames sent five boys (Steve Goettsch, Larry Conley, Mark Boden, Pat McCullough, and Ed Huffman) through the sectional tournament February 14th, and four (Conley, Boden, McCullough, and Huffman) advanced through district competition to the state meet in Waterloo, February 25-26.

The firsr year performance was encouraging, all things considered, and tankers will be awarded new pool facilities in 1967. Ames' swimming debut became a 67-28 victory for Iowa City's Little Hawks. Boone defeated the Little Cyclones 50-44, with a final event victory in the 400 medley relay. Ames was clearly out of Roose- velt's league (18-77), but chased Lincoln D. M. be- fore falling 55-40. Sayers won two firsts; Doran, Kelso, and Englehardt gathered one each against Marshalltown, but the 'Cats still won, 59-36. Ames gave Tech D.

The tankmen faltered at Newton, 58-37, but splashed to their historic win over North a week later, 49-46.

Ames High's basketball team enjoyed a 13-5 sea- son record which included an 8-2 Central Iowa Con- ference second-place standing. With only one regular returning from last year's team. Coach George Duvall was faced with a rebuilding season. But determination and desire produced a team which, in Mr. Duvall's own words, "played better than it really knew how." Six seniors wound up their basketball careers for the Little Cyclones. Mike Bliss, Merrill Anderson, Mike Calhoun, Rich Agard, and Rick Blake were second-year men who earned starting roles during the season, Dan Smith provided the team with plenty of statistics and enthusiasm when not suited up, and Tim Healy became, in all probability, the fans' favorite sub in school history. Because of a March 4 Spirit deadline, the staff was unable to cover Ames' tournament games following the regular season. The Spirit staff of '66-67 will devote time in the summer supplement to the Little Cyclone tourney record. Ames opened the 1965-66 basketball season November 19 with a 62-55 victory over Mason City at the ISU Armory. Ames' effective zone press made for a ragged, but hard-fought game. Both teams were cold from the field, but Agard managed 21 points to take scoring honors. Five nights later the Cyclones were defeated at North D. M. 85-77. Agard hit 25 and McKinley scored 16, but it wasn't enough to offset a balanced Polar Bear attack. The Cyclones went flat November 26 against West Water- loo, but still fielded a 58-25 victory. Agard scored 25 of Ames' 36 second half points en route to a 33 point total, and Watson snagged 20 rebounds as the Cyclones erased a 22-29 halftime deficit. Ames closed its first month of action with a 2-1 record. 100 BLISS TUCKS the ball under hi left arm, plows through two de- fender , and is finally confronted by a puzzled Steve Cooper of Marshalltown.

Anderson and Mc- Kinley were two of only three lettermon returning from last year's squad. The team's ability to work together made up for an overall lack of experience, and Coach George Duvall reaped success. December was undoubtedly the toughest month of the basketball campaign as the Little Cyclones met rated teams four times in six games. Ames' 79-73 win over the Boone Toreadors was the product of balanced scoring from Blake (25), Watson (21), and Agard (20). The Cyclones ran headlong into D. M. Roosevelt's No. 1 rated Riders December 4, and suf- fered an 83-40 beating, but rebounded the follow- ing week at Newton, 71-58. Agard's 36 points were half of Ames' total, and Bliss pulled down 12 re- bounds. December 17, Marshalltown's Bobcats defeated the Little Cyclones 65-57 to take sole possession of the conference lead. Ames' 27-26 halftime lead fell as the 'Cats took charge during a vicious fourth quarter. Five nights later Roosevelt D. M. returned, quickly mounted a 14 point lead, and held a 34-24 halftime advantage. But Ames bounced back, and Agard's twisting jumper at the buzzer left the Cyclones one point shy, 53-52. It was no consolation to proud Ames fans that the Little Cyclones missed 14 free throws. As if to take out vengeance for tv o near misses on another ranked team, Ames defeated fifth-rated Waverly December 28 in the second half of a wres- tling-basketball doubleheader. Agard tallied 31, Mc- Kinley 11, and the favored Go-Hawks were out of contention past the opening minutes. Six straight wins in January boosted Ames' season record to 11-4. Ames met and defeated the Oskaloosa Indians, January 7, 54-43, in a defensive battle high- lighted by the rebounding of Watson and Blake. The next night the Cyclones escaped with a 59-58 win over Webster City. The Linx, trailing all the way, stayed within range and eventually closed to within one point. AMES DEFEATED their traditional debut foe. Mason City 62-55. Agard. defensing a Mohawk guard, topped all scorers for the second straight year with 21 points. 101RICH AGARD'S BASELINE MOVES tend two Bobcats crashing to the 3rd rated Bobcats and top ranked Roosevelt D.

Agar's 256 po-uds bmk CfC $c wx tg Agard hit on 17 of 26 field goal attempts and added seven free throws for 41 points January 14, as Ames exploded past Grinnell, 98-71. Other individ- uals' performances went almost unnoticed, although the Cyclones played near-perfect basketball. Ames suffered a reverse in, form the next night against Dowling, but still managed a 56-54 victory. The Cyclones' 43-35 third quarter lead looked safe, but the Maroons, bidding for an upset, stormed back the final five minutes. Ames' second win over Boone was spectacular, although costly. Ames regulars held Boone to just 39 points before departing with five minutes left, but center Ron Watson sustained a knee injury which sidelined him for three weeks. The Little Cyclones stretched the win streak to seven with a 70-65 decision over Newton to close out the January action. Ten fourth quarter free throws by Anderson and Agard quelled the final Cardinal rally. The Little Cyclones' chances for a share of the CIC crown tarnished February 4 as the Marshalltown Bobcats raced by Ames 70-47. Blake led Ames' scorers with 14 points and spearheaded the final Ames rally early in the second half. The Orange and Black were out to establish a new winning streak the following week at Oskaloosa and accomplished c 60-48 victory to clinch a CIC second. Ames led from the early going and Aqard returned to form with 22 points. The Cyclones' last conference game pitted Ames against Grinnell February 18. The Cyclones pre- vailed, 61-49, and Agard's 23 points broke the con- ference scoring record of 240, held by former Ames all-stater Gene West. Encouraging play from the big men in the Cyclone attack—Anderson, Calhoun, Watson, and Blake—figured strongly in the final outcome. With this victory the Cyclones closed their regular season 13-5, and took fresh momentum into the March district tournament. MERRILL ANDERSON ADDS TWO at the Toreadors' expense, and Mike Calhoun is there to make sure, as Ames defeated Boone 85- 52. Determination displayed by "Andy" and "Hoon" earned starting roles and plenty of relief action as the season progressed. 102OUT JUMPING PLAYERS several inches taller. Tim McKinley pulls down an important rebound against M'town. The scrappy senior's 100% effort combined outstanding floor play, timely rebounding, and his favorite underhanded scooping lay-up. MIKE BLISS CONCENTRATES at the foul line against Grinncll. On several occasions this year the Little Cyclones could have used better free throw accuracy. Ames missed 17 and 14 foul shots in losses to M'town and Roosevelt, and failed 21 times against Boone. SEASON'S RECORD Varsity Sophs Ames 62 Mason City ...........55 57-64 Ames....77 North D.

Hardly on the same plane as Batman and his cohorts, but meeting adversaries almost as challenging are battlers participating in the matches called intramural sports, or GRA in its feminine form. Not receiving half the publicity of the athletic teams, but more fun are the variety of engagements organized by sponsors Miss Foote, Mr. Smalling and Mr. Page, with assistance from several students. Enemies seemed much more tangible than the Batman type, and came in the forms of people trying unorthodox methods to stop a ball going through a hoop, stakes that repel horseshoes, and gutters that attract bowling balls. GRA has a cabinet which directs its affairs. This year, the organization was headed by Linda Self, president, Mary Peterson, vice-president, and Judy Baldus secretary-treas- urer. They often came up v ith interesting side activities to supplement the usual sports. INTRAMURALERS STAND BY and watch while the technique for aiming at the basket is shown them by a fellow expert.

Maybe in time these will fade in the minds of A.H.S. students, but there will always be the impression of a red brick building, the completion of its parts, and the People. 108 PEOPLEMR. WALTER HET2EL has served eleven years as superintendent of schools. In this time the school population has increased from 3200 students to 5500 students, one elementary school and five additions have been built, and four units of the high school completed. Fifth unit will be the gymnasium. BOARD OF EDUCATION—Mrs. William Buck, Robert Fellinger, Dr. W. R. Underhill (pres.). Bill Allen, Donald Payer, T. E.

Enrollment at the high school continued stable, with a total of 1085 students. The 1966 class of 373 seniors was the biggest ever; since 337 juniors and 361 sophomores v ere enrolled, it seemed as- sured of that distinction for some time. Other vital statistics were of interest, too: once again Ames had the most Merit Scholarship semifinalists of any school in the state, twelve,- 81 per cent of its graduates went on to further study; 81 per cent of courses taken were academic; dropout rate was 1.9 per cent.

Another new feature of the cafeteria program was the food council, con- sisting of nine students, Mr. Carroll Bennett, cafeteria supervisor, and Mrs Margaret Cutlip, director of food serv- ices.

The SRA composition materials for the overhead projector have been used principally in sophomore English and communications skills. The projector also is used to show themes and to teach fine points of grammar. V IK «.yjr Dittoed, detailed UnsWctions, six categories of "un- acceptable" for theses, required use of ISU theme paper, and talk of purpose, audience, structure made this year's writing assignments different and yester- year's masterpiece obsolete. After three Ames teach- ers participated in the NDEA Institute in English at Iowa State last summer, a new senior course, the advanced standing course stressing composition, was added and most sophomore classes used a new writing program written by Mr. Keith Carlson and Mrs. Barbara Ward. Other English classes used new techniques and visual aids to teach the difficult art of writing more vividly. Four full years of English are required of everyone. Juniors take American literature, and seniors may elect world literature, English literature, journalism, or communications skills. Developmental reading, a one-semester course, may be elected any time for English credit. BETTER THAN A MOVIE—oops, motion picture, is watching Miss Mary McNally in action teaching a senior world or English literature class. Miss McNally, head of the English department, was a con- sultant for the NDEA Institute in English at Iowa State last summer and helped set up the Advanced Standing Program in Iowa. She also serves as a counselor for sophomore girls. 114MOVING TO A NEW HOUSE kepi Mrs. Aurilla Vcgors busy last summer. A bonus from the new house was the many boxes of apples she brought to the other teachers, giving a new twist to an old line. Mrs. Vegors teaches communications skills, world and English literature, counsels junior girls, and sponsors the student council citizenship committee. TRULY HIGHLIGHTING the school year for Mrs. Grace Bauske was a trip to Boston for the National Council of Teachers of English convention in November. She took time to see historical America; especially exciting to her as an American literature teacher was her Thanksgiving dinner at Plymouth. She also teaches journalism and sponsors the WEB. A RECENT GRADUATE of Iowa State University with a major in English, Mrs. Anna Mary Mueller is now teaching communications skills and American literature while maintaining an avid interest in baseball. She helps sponsor Pep Club. 115TRAVELLING TEACHER in more ways than one is Mrs. Jan Sabourin, right. Not only did she travel all over the country before coming to Ames last year, but each of her classes is conducted in a dif- ferent room. She teaches American literature and sophomore English. Her husband also is a graduate student. She sponsors the student council service committee. AFTER SPENDING three months in Alabama, Mrs. Beth C. Anderson, left, vividly realized the deep tensions in the South. This knowl- edge gave her American literature students new views about people fh America through her passes. ,Shj| teaches Eng sh UNIQUE AMONG teachers at Ames High School is Mrs. Evelyn Thompson, left. Not only is she an alumna of the high school, but she is the mother of the Thompson twins, Mary and Neil, graduat- ing seniors. As a student, Mrs. Thompson was WEB editor, a SPIRIT staff member, and active in drama. She teaches American literature and serves as coordinator for the teachers of junior English classes. Mrs. Thompson also sponsors SCRATCH PAD creative writing publication edited by members of the honors American literature class and published in the spring. 116 - A WIDE VARIETY of activities kept Mr. Keith Carlton busy last summer. Besides playing the trombone in the municipal band and serving as archery director for the Recreation Commission, he began to build a stone house in the country. He also attended the NDEA summer institute where he got new ideas for the sophomore English classes.

Surviving high waters and perils, she was back again coordinating sophomore English and teaching communications skills and the honors sophomore class. "Something old, something new" characterized sophomore and junior English classes in 1965-66. Sophomores continued with once-a-week themes under the new writing program and the v eekly speech program also was revised by Mr. Jerry Proffit. In addition, they still pondered the mysteries of Silas Marner and Julius Caesar. Juniors had a new textbook but continued to study American literature from John Smith on and to write research papers on their tentative future vocations. CHECKING NEGATIVES is only one of Mrs. Ward's tasks as SPIRIT sponsor. She once worked on newspapers in Des Moines, Chicago, Utah, Texas, and Virginia, and now teaches developmental reading and sophomore English, and co authored the new writing program. 1170 ' O MR( JERRY PROFFIT, d ■ JLJLsi CjlTT - drama is one of the best opportunities for group work in creating a single art object—a play—but it is also more than just putting on a play.

Receiving a master's degree in library science, getting married, and working in the Cleveland Institute of Music fully occupied this pasl summer. A previous summer was spent in a library in the Pentagon. Mrs. Hoover says she gets much satisfaction from working with students. 118Language lloh(yrf)tt(yvL jMOv cuv UwtJIuCtbfo old . ii V [I RECORDINGS HEARD in the language lab provided student» with the opportunity to hear their foreign language spoken with true native accuracy. Carolee Beal listens over the ear phones. All classes share the laboratory facilities. Struggling with translations which sometimes don't make much sense, students get discouraged and wonder why they don't give up. But the answer comes. A hope whispers, "You have a dream." A difficult path stretches ahead of students undertaking the study of a language, but eventually they all speak a bit of it, write a bit of it, and know a bit about the people who speak it. It appears to be almost miraculous when somehow the dreams seem closer to reality. At Ames High dreams can come true in four different languages-. French, German, Latin and Span- ish. Innovations limited themselves to the acquisition of various sorts of textbooks. French students sup- plemented their texts with workbooks and a French culture and civilization book. Third-year Spanish stu- dents had a progressive new text, featuring "Pea- nuts" and Shakespeare in Spanish. Latin 5 and 7 was dropped because the popularity of second year Latin left no time for a class. German 3 and 4 translated Emil and the Detective, while all used a new review text. Research showed that there were more than twice as many students taking languages as shop and home economics courses. There were 523 enrolled in language classes, about half the stu- dents in the high school. ASSUMING THE ROLE of a student. Miss Barbara von Wittich spent seven weeks at the Tower of Babel of the Language Schools of Middlobury College, Vermont, studying German literature and art, taught by professors from German, Austrian and Swiss universities. Bitten with the wanderlust, she also spent a week on our "marvelous freeways," seeing seven states. Miss von Wittich teaches German and third- and fourth-year French. 119RvieigK ficutgactges unlock tkb do o to uj Ga k "THERE IS NO RECORD of anyone drowning in his own perspiration": therefore, Mr, William Ripp feels that the best way to kill time is to work it to death. Besides having "experiences too embarrassing to mention ' Mr. Ripp putters in the garden (his neighbors live off it), hunts, reads, and teaches Latin. He also counsels senior boys. DISPLAYING a wonderful enthusiasm about her subject is our new Spanish teacher, Mrs. Jan Wright. Wedding plans occupied her time last summer—she was married a week before school started. The four previous summers she studied at the University of Guadalajara in Mexico, as a supplement to her major in Spanish. 120JAY SAUL DONNED an original costume for a German Club pate in songs, dances, and activities making studies more skit.

She spent part of her past summer in Normandy and Paris, France, after visiting her daughter and new grandchild in England. She encourages any distraught stu- dent with this cheery philosophy "Do the best you can and don't worry about the rest!" SOUNDING LIKE a travelogue repertoire is an account of the past summer of Mrs. Joy Panagides, American history and French teacher. Directing a studying seminar in the Middle East, she and her husband had many chances to travel in that area. They found their trip illuminating and worthwhile and especially valuable for the insight they received into the affairs of the Middle East. 121QoCloJi StuckfiS thb pCt b, t[i fytfiMtib, t|i fjutwiA In all this world, the greatest need for oil peoples is the need for understanding: knowing and caring about the problems of others. The story of people contained in history is a record of problems whereby students gain insight into others' needs and hopes. At Ames, the chance for such insight is given through courses in American and world history, gov- ernment, sociology, international relations, and eco- nomics. Juniors are required to take American his- tory and seniors the one-semester government course. (jeiAT j,[) a WHATEVER THE Highway Commission might mean to the casual observer, to Mr. Kenneth Page it represents a re- freshing change. For the past twenty-two summers he has been employed there— this past summer as a materials inspector. Teaching economics, sociology, and Amer- ican government occupies his school time. 8ACK TO SCHOOL—Mr. Maurice Haushccr has resumed his respon- sibilities as a teacher of American and world history after "moon- lighting" in the House of Representatives, which was in session longer than any in Iowa history. INTERESTING SIDELIGHTS on American history and international relations can be given by Mr. Don Cole. He has travelled in the Middle East and Latin America, and currently is preparing a book on German sporting weapons. 122THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS and Mexico are two of the place where Miss Mary Harlan studied before coming to Ames last fall to teach government and sociology. Most recently she worked as a clerk for the Iowa legislature. She spent six weeks in Mexico studying Spanish and a semester at the library of Congress and the Pan-American Union doing graduate work. CENTER OF INTEREST—Jerry Boylan and Alan Bornmucller admire one of the eye-catching bulletin boards in Miss Harlan's classroom. GIVING UP OWNERSHIP of a restaurant to return once again to teaching, Mr. Bill Enquist teaches government and American history and supervises study hall, where he is shown in a characteristic pose, mulling over seating charts and paper work. ANOTHER NEW FACE was that of Mr. Richard Engen, who came from Independence. Iowa, where he taught six years. He and Mr. Duvall spent five years together as a coaching team there, and now they arc again together. Besides coaching sophomore foot- ball and basketball and tennis, he teaches world history. 123A NAME that hasn't been heard since last fall is that of Miss Marilyn Stafford, who in October became Mrs. Hanson. Her summer was filled with wedding plans, summer school teaching, and a trip to the Wisconsin Dells. Mrs. Hanson teaches geometry. Algebra 5, and probabilities and statistics. TWO AND TWO are four, four and four are eight, eight and eight are, well, let's sec. Nevertheless, Mr. Walter Wood can get his students to understand business math, algebra, trigonometry, and analytical geometry. CAUGHT IN AN INFORMAL STANCE. Mr. Dale Hiedeman engenders enthusiasm in his classes for geometry, trigonometry, and analytical geometry. He also advises the hall monitors. The sun, the earth and the stars were once objects of fear—but when man's fear was subdued by his curiosity he began to wonder—is there a relation- ship?, how far away? His curiosity created the need for a means which has evolved into the study of mathematics. We as students can satisfy our curiosity through math courses offered at Ames High. Consistently high ratings in the annual high school mathematics contest reflect the strong orientation toward the state scientific and technical university here, where so many graduates later enroll. Students may take three years of algebra, plus trigonometry, analytical geometry, applied math, probability and statistics, and geometry, which is required of most. Probability and statistics and third-year algebra were added iast year to meet the need of accelerated stu- dents. It is interesting to note that 72 per cent of Ames students are taking math. Watt, deboudttnetdb 0U 1is new omL tnte iesftng concepts 124■■ THOUGH NEW to the high school, Mr. Robert Impecoven is far from being new to cither the system or to the students. Leaving Central Junior High after teaching seventh grade math and coaching various teams for five years, he is now busy teaching applied math, business math and American history. One can also see him helping to coach football, wrestling and track. FUN AND GAMES all summer long—Mr. George Duvall spent his summer months “having fun with kids." Working for the Recreation Commission brought him in touch with many phases of organized summer activity. Any day during the school year will find him teaching algebra and coaching sophomore football or varsily bas- ketball and golf. TEACHING “NEW GEOMETRY" to sophomores, among the last products of "old math," has proved to be a trying experience for all concerned; but in his two years at Ames High, Mr. Roger Spratt has adjusted many students to new concepts with a minimal amount of pain. He also has one biology class. AS A TEACHER, one of Mr. Hubert Albertson's main hopes is to instill in his students a desire to do the best they can in whatever task they undertake. Algebra occupies school time, while he and his family faithfully attend our athletic events. Mr. Albertson owns a plot of land in northern Missouri, where he spends much time. 125 A JkF V -H £13 H4-V V 5 « a J rf-v i » i . ■“! i a .A -TT a i yv £c r;IC .

This summer he attended ISU, planned how to "annoy biology students," and spent a vacation along Lake Superior "collecting rocks, photographs, and poison ivy." RESEARCH IS an important aspect in the study of biology. Mr. Trump is working in the greenhouse off his room. A strong science department with a theoretical physics course, chemistry equal to the ISU freshman course, and honors courses in chemistry, physics, and biology, gives students a progressive education in that area. Guest speakers conduct science seminars which meet regularly and add depth to subjects barely touched in regular classwork. TO TEACH HOW to accept one's responsibilities as a member of an adult society—this is one of Mr. Cecil Spatchcr's objectives in teaching biology and coaching the varsity football team. 126w OUR PHYSICS COURSE seems so much more logical in the atmosphere created by Mr. James Jones. It is a very unusual course in that it only deals with the theoretical aspect of physics. Mr. Jones especially enjoys photog- raphy, music, and camping with his family. Physics, an elective course, is also taught by Mrs. Crane. WORKING HARD TO keep up with her chemistry and physics stu- dents is Mrs. Jean Crane, who says that neither subject comes to her as easily as students might think. Spending a month in Colorado, she end her sister identified seventy-five varieties of •wild flowers. THE FIRST IMPRESSION chemistry students receive of Mr. Floyd Sturtevant is one of true dedication to his subject and to the task of teaching it to his students so they understand it. 127IA mm AS BEAUTIFUL to Mr. Allen Jonas as the pictures he saw home this past summer, he took up golf, which he finds in Europe's art galleries the summer before last is his challenging and "generally enjoyable" especially when first child, a daughter named Katherine Anne. Remaining he breaks par. Mr. Jonas is completing his second year. GETTING STRINGS to sing is the responsibility of Mr. Dean Moberg, director of the Ames High orches- tra. With intense concentration, he checks over a musical score before rehearsal. A line spoken with the right inflection; individual talent blending beautifully to- gether in a chorus or a band or an orches- tra; a picture with perspective and mood. Ames students explore the many means of creative expression involved in art, music, and drama. Besides gaining experience with the various materials artists use, art students delved this year into the history of West- ern art and made a study of the metro- politan series. The vocal music depart- ment collaborated with drama in produc- ing Ames High's first musical. Also re- vived were two madrigal groups which were organized several years ago. UuSfo CtM l ojdb deparitoeAds — talmts imW 128THE WONDERFUL OLD tradition of weekly summer band con- certs still exists here in Ames under the careful direction of Mr. Richard Day. Music occupies his time during the school year too, with marching band, pep band, and varsity and sophomore concert bands. BORN IN INDIA, Mr. Alfred Wiser has travelled extensively in every area of the world. He founded the original "Rolling Stones" as a travel club and through it investigated thoroughly many countries. He applies this same enthusiasm to his new position as director of vocal music. 129 AMES HIGH MARCHING BAND provides half-time entertainment at varsity football games.RECOVERING AFTER a recent knee operation, Mr. Leonard Bengston spent this summer teaching driver education and studying at I.S.U. He devotes the school year to the work experience and co-op programs. Aside from these duties, Mr. Bengston directs the Ames School of Practical Nursing. The indecision many students feel about their careers often is dissipated by participation in the distributive education program. These students attend regular classes part of the day and work half days at regular jobs of many kinds, receiving both aca- demic credit and paychecks. Almost every kind of work possible is represented in the D.E. program. Some students work as cadet teachers and nurses' aids, but the majority hold sales and office jobs. Showcases in the second floor hall of the high school are decorated regularly by D.E. students to show techniques of showcase display. A total of 192 students were enrolled in the program, open to seniors only. MR. CARROLL BENNETT finds teaching challenging but rewarding. He feels that his life is more meaningful because he is able to associate with students. His philosophy: each of us is obligated to do .his best to leave the world a better place. He teaches office practices, business law, and business management. HELPING STUDENTS GET a feel of their chosen professions before actually going into them is Mr. James Overturf, who supervises distributive practice, bookkeeping, and cadet teaching. 130Qtudmh on ptepOA d ccwmas Ik business SEEING MRS. AVONELLE GARRETT, as she counsels and teaches typing and American history, one would find it hard to believe that she often spends summers "tramping and camping in the Great West" with her two boys. A great promoter of "See Amer- ica First", she believes there arc still many places in our country where national beauty can be appreciated. TEACHING SKILLS BECOMING more important in business was Miss Wanda Glamser, handling classes in advanced stenography, typing, and business machines and filing. Some of the more easily applied sub- jects at Ames High are taught by the business education staff, and yet for those who look for clerical jobs after graduation and for those who continue with a formal education, a typing class can prove to be one of the most valu- able of a student's high school years. A comprehensive series of courses is of- fered at Ames High School and is steadily increasing in popularity as its merits are becoming increasingly rec- ognized. NEV TO THE business staff, teaching typing and bookkeeping, is Mrs. Esther Buttrey, who taught at the high school at Mitchell, S. D., and at the School of Business at the University of South Dakota. IHUNTING AND FISHING highlight tho summer vacations and freo time of Mr. Merle Garman, one of the thirteen new teachers here at Ames High. He teachos typing and business law. A VERY DEFINITE NEED for well trained mechanics is created by the many innovations being made in the automotive field. Mr. Don Faas, new to us from Cherokee, Iowa, helps students to meet this challenge by teaching auto mechanics and metal working. UNDER MR. STONE'S careful supervision, continuous progress is being made toward one of the best driver education programs in Iowa. Mr. Stone's talents dominate mechanical and technical draft ing and electronics. The end of the summer found Mr. Stone and family touring several states. 132THE HOME ECONOMICS Department has Mrs. Gretchen Bonncwcll as its new teacher this year. A native of Manhattan, Kansas, she arrived in Ames two months after receiving her master of science degree. She sponsors the FHA girls' club. Pioudttoal Hob cowim tnjOthuMJ Though the influence of Iowa State University has made Ames High consciously academic, it has re- mained a comprehensive school with practical lab courses in auto mechanics, drafting, electricity, metal and woodworking and home economics. A total of 251 students were enrolled in these courses during the first semester, 48 girls taking home economics and the remainder boys in shop work. New to the high school this year was the work study group of 15 students taught by Mrs, Charlotte Bloom, who en- tered the Ames school system this year. The seven girls in the group take home economics with Mrs. Bonnewell and the boys study woodworking with Mr. MacBride. Mrs. Bloom, who has had a number of years' experience working with such students, is an- other newlywed. She was married last August. ON CUE at every assembly, party. Pep Club meeting and educa- tional movie arc the audio-visual aids installed by Mr. George MacBride. "Junior Exec" would not be, without his careful guidance. Mr. MacBride teaches woodworking. Graduating to Ames High in 1965 was the work-study group taught by Mrs. Bloom. The students have many opportunities to learn trades both in and out of school. IP.£-. t0uu£jj d umHv djUutfed {[04 4tfv ijftftA This was Ames High's fourth year without a gym, but help was on the way. The bond issue was passed, contracts were let, and con- struction started on the new gym planned to be ready in 1967. Meanwhile, there was the stadium, ready at last for the final football game, and curved girders for the swimming pool gave a futuristic air to outdoor gym ac- tivities. In bad weather, classes went bowling and roller skating, played table tennis, and engaged in gym activities which cou!d be con- fined to a limited space. FOR OVER TWENTY years Hiram Covey has inspired track teams to excel for their own self-improvement. He has never pushed.anyone to do well—only to do the very best he can. During the time he's been coaching. Ames High has been known for the phenomenal number of meets it has won. FILLING THE DUAL ROLE of athletic director and counselor, Mr. Ray Smalling would hardly seem "the poet laureate of AHS." However, often rising to occasions such as ath- letic contests, he has proved that he deserves this title. His personal philosophy: "Any day spent fishing does not count against a man's normal span of life." He became supervisor of all home rooms this year. BEAUTIFUL BACKDROP—One of the boys' gym classes plays a rousing game of touch football during the mild fall days. Girders of the swimming pool are seen in the background. "What if it's really a MacDonald's?" was the popular gagline at this stage. 134 WHILE MOUNTAIN CLIMBING was dropped because of the P.E. classes as a suitable replacement. The latest in attrac- lack of a mountain, speedball was taken up by the girls' tive shin guards we re purchased especially for the sport. LETTING OFF STEAM and learning about sports as well as yourself are some of the objectives of physical education according to Miss Wendy Foote, who feels that P.E. is something that can be en- joyed. She spends her summers on ploygrounds in her hometown of Bettendorf. BATTLING A VARIETY of discouraging conditions, but keeping up with them all is the new P.E. teacher. Though his teaching involved more varied subject matter back in Leon, Iowa, Jack Mendenhall is just as busy here as head wrestling coach and assisting in track and football. 135Wikow, CkoJJk, PojtmoHs had MUyo dote Reaching that half-wonderful, half-sad position at the top of the stack were 361 students who com- prised the senior class. In among the usual worries most seniors face (college, grades) they found time to plan end-of-the-year festivities for Senior Week through their governing body. Senior Senate. Of- ficers heading this organization were elected at the end of last year: Ed Wilson, president, Doug Shadle, vice-president, Jane Peterson, secretary, Kitty Kelley and Mary Pascale, co-treasurers. Long before many people were thinking of graduation. Senior Senate members were taking measurements for caps and gowns, and ordering announcements. Early in the year, members started wheedling $4.50 out of students' pockets to pay for six senior class play tickets, the sum which com- prised their senior obligation. By selling the tickets, students could be reimbursed. Later in the year, commencement exercises were planned. Seniors ended the year two days before underclassmen, in a short but well-earned Senior Week.

They were the ones with the perpetually agitated expres- sion on their faces. Moving up a year meant taking on more responsibilities, as the juniors soon found out. The major task for them and the only one the Junior Executive Coun- cil manages is the financing of the Prom. They took ad- vantage of the temperate zone and the change of seasons by raking leaves, which brought in the first of the money. Mums at Homecoming time brought more, and other proj- ects included student directories, a smorgasbord, the hilarious student-faculty basketball game, and a musical, the first Ames High had ever produced.

Though excited by the many new things, the 361 sophomores still occupied themselves with the usual subjects-a representative crosscut of them took geometry, biology, and English. Orientation and the Girls' Club Little Sister-Big Sister plan helped soph- omores feel more a part of the school. After marching band season, sophomores settled down for sophomore band, which is their counter- part of the juniors' and seniors' concert band. Separated also in athletics, sophomores have their own football and basketball teams, though they par- ticipate with juniors and seniors in track, baseball, and wrestling. KAYE KLEIN SHOWS Debbie Coyle a letter from her Big Sister which stretched halfway across the room when it was unrolled. Senior and junior girls adopt sophomore girls for a year and write them notes or give a variety of strange gifts. Adding to the fun is the anonymity of the older girls—a masquerade at the end of the year finally reveals the names.

Perhaps though, the old is never really left behind. Rather, it is in part absorbed by what is new. The memories of sitting in a crowded gym watching an Ames High basketball game or yelling for an Ames wrestler winning a decisive match re- main very much a part of the old gym. These proud mem- ories belong to its varnished floors and cold brick walls. So, too, would intramurals and GRA volleyball games seem strange without the familiar surroundings of the narrow bleachers and their chipped yellow railings. But the joy of participating and experiencing will be the core of the same activities in the new gym. The field, the track, the swimming pool—these, too, are all new, and yet, they are as old as Ames High. After meeting the last of four deadlines, those of us on the SPIRIT Staff who were con- scious enough to be aware of any emotion at all felt vaguely relieved, but our relief seemed somehow empty. For over a year, every event, every ac- tivity, and every person had been thought of in terms of copy, captions, and pictures. Week-end activities had been canceled, and class assign- ments left undone. The crea- tion of our book had been an important part of our lives, and now there was nothing more to do. We had created a book which embodied the ideals that had always been a part of Ames High and which recorded the actualities of the present. We found our book different, and exciting, and wonderful, not only because it v as new, but because it was our representation of the Ames High of 1966. 22319£ £ £Pf£fT Dfttuuj UlJ!

Coach Duvall (extreme left) molded these five individuals into a very well drilled and smooth-running team. Players, from left to right, arc Rich Agard and Rick Blake, forwards; Ron Watson, center; Tim McKinley and Mike Bliss, guards.

R. Jeferson 71 Ames 63 Sioux City Heelan . — 67 The Ames High little Cyclones topped a 13-5 regular season with a fourth place finish in the state basketball tournament. Conference rival Marshaltown took first place in front of Cedar Rapids Jef- ferson and Sioux City Heelan. Eight games marked the tournament road which the Little Cyclones traveled. Eldora. the first tourney test, was no match as Ames broke the game open early. After the starting five had scored 21 straight points in the third quarter. Coach Duvall cleared the bench to finish the 89-51 romp. Ballard provided the next challenge and an unexpectedly good one for the first half. Ames left the floor at halftime nursing only a five-point lead. But in the third quarter the Orange and Black got back on the beam and won it going away 70-46. A 33-point performance by Nevada's Dick Gibbs provided Ames fans with the biggest scare of early tournament play. Much of the seesaw battle, with Ames making a number of costly errors, looked as though it might be the end of the tournament road for the little Cyclones. But a late surge showed Nevada that Ames High could not be put out of the state tourney so easily, as the Cyclones came out on the long end, 71-69. 226- WITH A STYLE all hi» own. Rich Agard's fantastic accuracy from outside was a terror for all Ames foes throughout the season. The tournament was no exception as Rich was the top tourney scorer with 82 points in the four games.

How- ever, Tim McKinley's outside shooting took up the slack as Ames came from ten points behind to force Jefferson into an overtime. One freethrow was the difference as Ames again came through 60-59. Ames sneaked its way right past the experts and the polls and into the state tournament with another come-from-behind victory. After being behind Fort Dodge 39-32 in the third quarter, the Orange and Black, led by Rich Agard's fantastic accuracy from the outside, shifted into high gear and pulled ahead to stay winning, 48-43. During the week state tournament fever gripped Ames High students as nothing had gripped them since the 1955 championship. Ames was riding high as the Little Cyclones took the floor at Veterans Auditorium. Again it was Rich Agard's outside shots that kept Ames one step ahead of Algona. Coach Duvall's unsung team pushed its way into the semi-finals 65-53. It was a strong Cedar Rapids Jefferson team that finally took the wind out of the Cyclone sails. Ames gave if a good try, but was unable to stay in the game, losing 71-55. The following night Ames suffered another setback, this time to Sioux City Heelan. Ames held the lead with four minutes to go. but was unable to hold it, ending up in fourth place, 67-63. Ames fans had good reason to be proud, and they showed if at the assembly when the trophy was presented. Ames showed the state that you can't believe what you read in the polls. IT WAS A PROUD occasion for Mr. Adams and Ames High School when the consolation-runnerup trophy was presented to Captain Rich Agard at Veterans Memorial Auditorium. 227C jcdo i6 t iCtck teOin uiuiS Stoto ittdo i cii0 fDi0 iSldfD SHOWING THE STRAIN of the race Dick Pohl break; the tap ga n for the record-sotting two-mile relay. Mr. Covey's last track season produced another state championship trophy to add to a fantastic array which Ames has collected in the last 22 seasons. Led by the record-setting two-mile relay team, the Little Cyclones again braved the odds to win the state in- door crown. The home track season started in the new stadium with the Cyclones winning their twenty-first consec- utive Ames Invitational over Roosevelt and North of Des Moines. The track team finally got to use the new, improved, and long awaited track and gave an excellent showing by finishing 25, 2 points ahead of their nearest rival. The thinclads reached the pinnacle of the season at the district meet in Marshalltown. The amazing two- mile relay team turned in a 7:48.6 time, which was the season's fastest in the nation to date. But the Little Cyclones did suffer one unexpected defeat in the CIC meet in Boone. Marshalltown edged past Ames by one second in the final race to take a 104-100 victory. 1966 SEASON'S RECORD State Indoor . . . . .

The Little Cyclones were heavy under- dogs and would have liked nothing better than to pull out another cham- pionship. But it wasn't the Cyclones' day as one of the members of the two-mile relay fell and Ames had to settle for fifth place. And so, as Mr. Covey retires from active coaching, another page has been written in the history of Ames High. It was one of the most glorious pages that Ames High has ever had. Mr. Covey's twenty-two seasons of hard work and dedication served as an inspiration for scores of Ames High students. His fighting spirit brought home to Ames more trophies than could possibly be put in the trophy case. His contributions to ath- letics will never be forgotten at Ames High School or by the athletes who served under him. COACH COVEY SHOWS OFF his large collection of state championship trophies from the last twenty-two seasons. His trophies arc only a small part of what he has contributed to Ames High during his career. His shoes will be hard for a new coach to fill.

To the delight of the audience, the humorous operetta, set in Japan, had colorful scenery, exquisite costumes, and a proficient chorus. The Mikado was unique in the fact that it engaged so many people in working toward its success—a cast of nine principals, a 53-member chorus, a 23-piece orchestra, a large technical staff, and the guidance of Mr. Alfred Wiser, Mrs. Gillian Rowlands, Mr. Jerry Proffitt, and Mr. Dean Moberg. The singing and acting positions were open to any student who wished to try out, while the technical crews were filled by drama members. The planning and preparation for The Mikado began weeks before the opening night. Staging was laid out; make-up plans were designed; lines were learned; and songs were practiced. Then came the almost endless night rehearsals, followed by mornings which came hours too soon. Finally the days of the two eve- ning performances came, and before anyone realized, they were gone. The finale was over, the curtain was drawn. All that remained were remnants of black hair- dye and many wonderful memories. MANY LONG HOURS went info the memorizing of songs and the creation of characters. Bill Fredericks played the part of Ko-Ko. the delightful villain who won the hearts of the audi- ence. "FOR HE'S GONE and married Yum-Yum ..." The whole cast joins to sing the finale and the operetta comes to an end.AUTHENTIC JAPANESE COSTUMES. .1 generous amount of black hair dye. tubes of grease paint, and exotic eye make-up con- tributed to the beauty of the girls' chorus, which was one of the important factors of the success and enjoyment of The Mikado.

The Watson-Davis platform proposed: more informal parties with the addition of movies for those who don't dance; separate class assemblies with a program and time to discuss class business; a student supply store managed by DECA; and an improved intramural program. The Smith-Bauske team advocated: the revival of the Liaison Committee between the students and the school board; a teacher evaluation program by which students could offer anonymous constructive criticism to their teachers; and support and broadening of the AHS newsletter. Both candidates wanted two student exchanges a year, with at least one of them being with a Big Seven Conference school, and nomination assem- blies after the new gym is completed. Nerve-wracking tension built up through- out the week. After ballots had been counted and recounted, the announcement came that Ron Watson and Chris Davis had been elected president and vice-president of the student body for the fall semester of the 66-67 school year.

The theme was "Renaissance II" and as the name implies, it was an "awakening." There was the un- usual sight of fellow’ classmates in prom finery as well as the exciting, festive atmosphere that comes only once a year. The Sun Room at the Union was a perfect back- ground for this year's decorations. White pillars and a tiered fountain formed the setting for the bandstand, and, of course, the well-dressed couples were deco- rations in themselves. Ralph Zarnow and his orchestra provided music for dancing. Many couples took a break from the dancing to be entertained in the Great Hall by silent movie flicks and the fantasy of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. Held at the Elks' Club, the seniors' after-prom party had the ever-popular Batman theme. Seniors and their dates danced to the music of the Schooners. Juniors and their dates were entertained at the Moose Club. The couples reached home near daylight as the major event of the year came to an end. A JAZZ TRIO of lindy Buck, guitarist, Mike Foreman, drummer, and John Mathison, pianist, entertained the banquet guests at the Prom. 239GriiwM CoffeefyiASidwb speaks ot qiaduodlo THE INSPIRING IDEAS put forth by this year's speaker. Dr. Glenn Legget, were well-received by the graduating class. Strains of "Pomp and Circumstance" filled the armory as 361 seniors began their solemn march to a long anticipated graduation. They were an impressive sight as they filed into the waiting rev s of chairs. The audience of friends and relatives was more than silent as they watched the important event occur. Dr. Glenn Legget's graduation address, "Scholars Old and New" coupled with the Rev- erend Stanley Borden's baccalaureate sermon "Three to Get Ready" provided the senior class with many serious ideas. Well-earned diplomas were then received with proud handshakes. The solemnity began to break during the recessional and ended suddenly as each new graduate passed through the door. Inside the armory the echoes of excited shouts could be heard from the Class of '66. An after-graduation party at the Ames Country Club capped a string of celebrations held during Senior Week. The festivities, spon- sored by parents of the seniors, consisted of the senior picnic, an after-baccalaureate party, as well as the after-graduation dance. 361 SOLEMN SENIORS marched fo the strains of "Pomp and Circumstance to a long-awaited graduation. 240 C-r.
