As the temperatures soared, the community did without refreshing water fights, green lawns and shiny- clean cars. The city allotment was 40 gallons per person per day. Buckets under drain spouts, two-minute showers and gardens kept halfway alive with dishwater all became signs of the time. All in all, the weather was not only a topic of light conversation, but a major factor in the life of the community. In contrast to the parched summer, the winter was bitterly cold with snow covering the ground from November to March. The Ames City Council was notified in April of '77 that the 50-year-old Carr's pool could not be repaired in time for the swimming season. In a gallant move of honest concern, approximately 200 Ames residents and business firms donated labor, materials and around $2800 to the project, enabling the pool to open up at the end of June. In the fall, Ames played host to an iceberg convention. Prince Mohammed Al-Faisal of Saudi Arabia was a prime source in funding the event, the first convention of its kind. When Prince Faisal came to Ames High, he talked of the possibilities of icebergs used as an aid in solving the lowa drought problems. One fringe benefit of having the prince come to school was a $3000 gift. After a flood of ideas to student council on ways to use the prince's gift, it was decided to give $1000 to a school landscaping project, $500 to the Leukemia Foundation and Story County Youth Services and the additional $1500 was invested in the bank for future $150 scholarships to be awarded to outstanding AHS students. Top: PRINCELY. In the Ames High parking lot with his bodyguard, Prince Mohammed Al-Faisal stopped for a minute, perhaps to contemplate the $3000 he gave to the high school that afternoon.
