The greatest loss came in the form of budget slashes, a result of taxpayers’ declining willingness | to Invest in the system. Unfortunately, fee-collecting programs were not able to compensate for the loss, meaning several programs and teachers had to be dropped. This report will examine both decreasing and increasing, monetary, and non-monetary, investments in the school. م ee‏ ١ Gr” En ÁÀA QS [oes Ke e e we ን OL ሥሙ --፦. r7 dë -. - መቻ”. — e ... mp " ec " mm bS 4» Wm, 86 ' " 6 8888: A CUM mm WT " 6 gp gp Ice mmm “፡ የይ e d 42 e 9 ጻ፡ ሚመ ሕመ.ሖ س ص a. ። eS nn un un.“‏ mre. md » " LULA ር ተጨ... ሞም Áo ፦ መሙ . ጂም ee mp ل‎ መጨ e edi o بج‎ www ww Wm OU RR EE = و‎ መ LIA s u...“ een nn nn ሙም ብ tun A ሐለ 6 48487 “398 " " ” " " N tut tS 8. ፤..ጸ.ጹዶይስሕይ፤ 68:98 " HH HEN iN ፥ LJ ኢ፣ ኢጂ ሚዲ ` A aa hy N Se ኣለሊ AN TAN LX ` M Soo SS m ١ S III III, STR SS CSREES A ëm pe‏ م 6 1لا سه | E we sp mya x er | Producti One basic purpose of the Ames High system, indeed our entire educational system, is to produce educated, socially adjusted graduates.

We recommend that each student bring his or her own flashlight tor future use. Thank you.” Bong-bing- bing-bong! There were many budget cuts made this year at Ames High, but none quite as severe as the preceding exaggeration. [he cuts were a direct result of the declining enrollment. Ironically, Ames High experienced a record high enrollment for the 1978-79 school year. [he plac e the decrease was most evident was throughout the elementary schools, especially the kindergartens. Many programs felt the budget crunch, but only two were discontinued. They were girls’ fall softball and the short lived speech program. Dr. Ralph Farrar justified these cuts by explaining thal botn programs were run in the past on an experimental basis and " thus Decame obvious candidates for deletion. " On top of all this belt-tightening, the cost of the relocation of the IMC and classroom renovation had to be accounted for. One staff member - መ a’ b በኩ. کے د“‎ t -መጨ፦-፡፡ سد‎ “መፁ — ይህ” æa commented, “| think it’s disgusting that there exists money for remodeling but not for staffing. A teacher is of more value in the educational process than a new sofa in the IMC.” Superintendent David Moorehead defended the new IMC: “Before you can teach, you need a place in which to teach. " Even the reductions and program cuts could not compensate for the dwindling budget. Consequently, students were charged a five-dollar district fee. [his sum helped to cover the cost oi: onsumable school supplies purchased by the school district and used by the students as part of their instruction. This year’s collected fees totalled $25,000. Liz Triplett was one student who refused to contribute. “I’m not going to pay five bucks to buy some Kid glue and construction paper,” she Said. [he future of the Ames school budget remains vague, but Farrar was sure of one thing: " We ain't seen nothing yet! " Above: UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

Over one hundred juniors and seniors did manage to find time to participate in the various activities made available through the organization. The majority were involved in the Nursing Home Program. “I think the old folks really appreciated us. It’s a good feeling to know you're making someone happy, " remarked Margaret Beaudry. A number of students spent an hour every Friday at the pool helping some handicapped preschool children learn to swim. Ann Trunnel commented, “The kids really trust you. It's a good feeling. " Other students worked for a community organization called Open Line. Twenty-one hours of training were required before students could become volunteers.

Not true, according to a number of Ames High students surveyed. No two students placed the same individual under the title hero and many others didn't consider anyone suitable for that ranking. Publicity may have had something to do with this year's lack of hero- worshipping. Many students felt that, with the right publicity, anyone could become a hero. [his fact seemed to greatly diminish the idolization of certain individuals. Scott Conlon, referring to the relationship between publicity and the making of heroes, said, " Publicity can make mountains out of mole hills. " He named John Wayne as his hero, the reason being that, " unlike other heroes ne has lived up to his image. He has something that is a dying quality — respet te Ann Freeman agreed DY Say Ing " Publicity doesn't always have to be true. [hey (those who publi ze) can Say W natever they want about neroes Heroe’ 14 and people often believe it.” [here were also those who were convinced that publicity alone could not make a hero. One sophomore explained, A person í ould become well known with the help of publicity, Dut not a heri ኸ.“ Another student agreed by saying, “Publicity cannot build heroes because people can see through phoniness. Greg Holmberg said " |! takes some talent or abılıty to promote nefore public itv will be effective. " Even though there were tew hero figures evident in the 78 79 year, there were many famous and frequently heard names such as Terry Bradshaw, Tracy Austin, Robin Williams, Billy Joel Elton John, Pink Panther, Jonn Bellushi, Paul Harvey, Blues Brothers, Steve Martin, Chery!

DECA is also club activities, state and local competition, and much more. “DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) is a program in which students are trained for careers in marketing and distribution,” said DECA advisor Darrill Abel. DECA, like all the other occupational education classes, consists of three phases: the job, the classroom and club activities. Most of the jobs students held were in the retail marketing field. Many of the stores were located in the downtown and North Grand Mall areas. “If you're willing to work hard, it can be very beneficial at work and at school,” said Todd Hageman. “DECA is well worth your time because you're learning about your job on the job and in the classroom,” said Kelly Froning. Club activities included the selling of calendars, a parent potluck dinner, a teacher breakfast and a multitude of other functions. Alan Abbott summed up his feeling about DECA very simply, “DECA was a very rewarding experience. " Left: LOWER AWAY.

Despite jumping ahead early, Ames could not hold the lead, needing a last- minute touchdown to secure the win. un: As in the past, a pep rally was held the night before the game, in order to “fire up” the student body. However, high winds forced cancellation of the traditional bonfire, and following the coronation of the Homecoming King and Queen, an abbreviated ceremony was held in the gym. A variety of skits were performed, most notably one in which football co-captain Mark Birdseye consumed a live grasshopper to demonstrate his squad’s “animal” instincts. جر = Lge tae rT ኻን my ao Du Ur eem 9 9 3 ናም قوف قت‎ 5 H Bam E? 5 A ዬ — = . pê , D . ቕ T ወብ ይ A E - ፦ m Moments before, seniors Bob Baker and Ann Watson were presented to the coronation audience as Homecoming King and Queen.

The orchestra was made up of only 11 string players and 12 wind and percussion players, but there was some very fine talent. Four of the string players were chosen to play in the All-State orchestra. They were: Mike Deppe, bass; Margaret Gourlay, violin; Wendi Harris, viola; and John David McCully, vıola. Because of the small sıze, there was only one orchestra and no chamber orchestra. “We already had a chamber orchestra,’ commented McCoy. Performances throughout the year included the winter concert, pops concert, baccalaureate and two all- city orchestra concerts. Orchestra members had some good tımes despite the small orchestra size. Mike Deppe said, “If more people would get involved in orchestra, they would enjoy it. " ae x NEL a . + NN WASSER e.

The one-quarter gym class, which was introduced during the 1977-78 school year, drew a sizeable number of students who liked the alternative to the traditional health class or who wanted to learn first aid techniques. A pamphlet published by the American Medical Association provided the basis for the course of study, which included periodic quizzes and a final test. The classes met daily with physical education instructor Fern Lawler to watch films, splint and bandage fellow students' limbs, and practice CPR techniques on life-size dummies known as “Resusci-Annie,” “Resusci- Baby " and " CPR Man. " The experience paid off for one veteran of the class, who remarked, " After taking first aid, | decided to become a nurse. | learned a lot.

Grease majors in auto mech, and comes to school each day decked out in ragged jeans, a T-shirt and field boots, ready to tune up his car. By lunch, Grease is covered with dirt and oil, and reeks of gasoline. After school, he squeals out of the parking lot behind the shop (true gearheads don't park on “gearhead row " ), screaming obscenities at the little cars that get in his way. Grease is very proud of his car, a Chevy with jacked-up rear end, side pipes, 15- inch mags, modified muffler, racing stripes and turbocharged engine. He smiles confidently as the car burns towards Hardee's, his favorite eating establishment. Obviously, there are few Poindexter " Grease " Monkeys at AHS, but over the years this stereotype has developed, becoming more and more exaggerated. ሙሙ” Left: [T'SA G Inset: SHE'S asch ር [8ከ|3በ61!3 E ኣየር የሞ Brady beforg-leaving On her mopedai أب‎ € U. ap Pa T ١ e A CÓ 7 55870. ኙም. : ቆቅ ፕሌ ce o ጮ፦፦ ME pony wel | ላ E d r trn ' 1 gesatire. p- መ don ከና. ክው መመ d Tee maa ee © Driver Education 29 It’s the night before a crucial test and you haven’t even opened your book.

Brock Kelly remarked, “I think they should have more assemblies — | like the shortened class periods.” Fall assemblies consisted mainly of pep rousers for fall sports, at which pep boosters introduced the coaches and teams to the student body. Diana Speer commented, “| liked the pep assemblies that involved the crowd. " Assemblies featuring live bands remained popular this year. Straightshooter, a band made up of high school students, played twice during the year. Shelby Campbell said, " | liked the Straightshooter assembly the best. " Another student commented, “Assemblies like the one with Straightshooter are a welcome relief from classes. " Not all students attended the various assemblies. For those fortunate seniors with open campus, assemblies offered a perfect opportunity to leave the building for a short time. Beth Herriott reflected, " Sometimes my open campus privileges held higher priorities than assemblies. " -— mg e E M.

Drum majorette Phyllis Robinson and drum major Don Dobell led the 175 band members and 30 auxiliaries (flag corps members and twirlers) during the half-time performances of the home games. Band director Homer Gartz commented, “With more people playing their parts better we had a very full sound.” The marching band had a special opportunity to go to Waterloo and play at the half-time of the Ames-East Waterloo football game. “The trip to East Waterloo was the high point of the season,” one band member reflected. The marching band played for the football season, and the pep band played for the basketball season. Eric Wulf mentioned, “The pep band really gets rowdy and helps fire up the crowd.” The pep band did get rowdy when it played at all nine home boys’ games, three girls’ games and one wrestling meet. Also, for the third year in a row, the pep band went to play at the Girls’ State Basketball Tournament.

The Central lowa Wind Orchestra, made up ot band members from Ames and the surrounding area, flew to Seefeld, Austria, to perform in the 1979 Austrian International Music Festival. The title “wind orchestra” was chosen because that is a common name for bands in Europe. During the eight-day festival, wind orchestra members participated in clinics, performed concerts, and toured parts of Bavaria and Tyrolia. Concert band flutist Lisa Peters was looking forward to the new experiences, “| had a chance to meet new people and learn about their culture.” she said. Last year the band also went on tour to Kansas City. All the members of the concert and varsity bands went on the tour which lasted from MacVey, Wally Madden, Peter McCoy, Linda Mendenhall, Susan Ostermann, Peter Pady, Renee Richardson, David Sanders, Marty Schiel, Brent Shanks, Dave Skarshaug, Damon Snyder, Marc Stromen, Paul Torgeson, Jim Twetten, Charles Verhoeven, Loren Wobig, Susan Yager, Paul Zingg. April 29 to May 1. Band members performed two concerts at Kansas City schools. Visiting the Kansas City Zoo, going to a Royals baseball game, and spending a day at Worlds of Fun highlighted the tour. Other activities last year included a Christmas party, and the annual Dand picnic. Even though the band had many extra activities, they still had time to practice and develop the sound of a college band. Band director Homer Gartz attributed this to the quality of the players. “This year's band has the greatest depth of any previous band. We lost good players, but there are many more in all grades capable of replacing them. " Upper Left: VICTORY.

The remodeling done over the summer included moving the foreign language classrooms downstairs to where the IMC was formerly located. There were advantages and disadvantages to moving the classrooms. The walls between the rooms were not soundproof, and one class would often disturb an adjoining class. Also, students moving in the main hall outside occasionally disrupted the classroom routine. Even with all the problems, French teacher Robin Murray thought the new rooms were an improvement. “| think they're a much more pleasant place in which to teach and to learn, " she commented. " Overall, there's more room, and | think they're extremely attractive.” The floors of the new rooms were carpeted, affording foreign language students a luxury previously enjoyed only by fine arts students. But when it came time for class parties, the carpet was a nuisance because of clean-up problems. The new classrooms came at a time of increasing enrollment in the foreign language program. Over 30% of the student body was studying a foreign language in 1978-79, compared to 20% in 1975-76. Left: SPANISH MAINDISH.

This seven-student jury then organized meetings with the student, the teacher or administrator, and an uninvolved teacher. After listening to both sides of the conflict, the board made a recommendation to Principal Ralph Farrar of what it felt was suitable action to follow in the situation. If he disapproved of their suggestion, he usually met with the board to work out a compromise. “It ran pretty well,” said Sinan Demirel, who helped organize the board in past years. Demirel felt the administration was receptive to the students' ideas. He remembered that, at one time, the board members had asked for a change in the rules so that they could meet alone (without a teacher of administrator present) when they discussed their final verdict. The administration agreed right away. Though the board tried only four cases this year, junior member Mike Grable felt it was a worthwhile organization.

The lines were a result 551 panicking when Californians were told that gas supplies would be scarce and that they must conserve. Before the California situation was eased, there were reports of violence among people waiting in line.

Skyrocketing gas prices throughout lowa reminded residents that they were not immune to the kind of problems California was suffering. Depending on who one talked to, one could learn that the energy crisis was caused by Congress, the oil companies, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and the revolution in Iran, or the American consumer. At the height of the crisis, Congress rejected a gasoline-rationing contingency plan proposed by President Carter, an action which seemed to many people to be a sign that Congress was unwilling to face up to the energy crisis.

Some students had this idea in mind when they invested their money in something thatthey hoped would become valuable in the future. Others invested money in things that would not yield a monetary return. " | started a coin collection as an investment, but now I will probably never sell it, " Doug Meyer said of his collection of proof sets. A popular investment was one for pleasure. These varied widely with people's individual tastes. Music lovers spent large amounts of money on stereo equipment and records, investing in a future of listening pleasure. Bank accounts are a common and popular way of putting away money for the future. All the students polled in an informal survey said they had some kind of account at a bank. Reasons for having an account included saving for a car, saving for college and saving for a trip to Europe or to other places. College seemed to be the main goal of the people saving their money, though. For those wanting to make a killing in real estate or the stock market, Todd Hageman reminds us of these words of wisdom, “It takes money to make money.” Right: INSTANT SAVING.

Phil Sogard remarked, “I’m taking math just to be safe. . .in case | need it in the future. " Kellye Carter reasoned, “| probably won't need advanced math for my career, but | figure | should take it anyway. " There were also students who saw no place for math in regard to their future needs. Rod MacBride said, “| don't see any need for me to go further. If | need it later, | can get it in college. " Todd Hanson took a look at the more economical side involved in taking math on the high school level: " Education is free right now, so | want to get in all | can — including math. " Some students found math to be more enjoyable than some of the other electives. Tim Hogan said, “I'd rather take math than home ec.

Several students in architectural drawing did just that. These homes are not your run-of-the- mill, two-bedroom, ranch-style houses either. Ed Gschneidner designed a combination underground and solar home built on the principles of the I.S.U. solar home. His two-story house has tanks of water heated by the sun, which saves on heating. The house is also partially buried, the soil serving as insulation. Gschneider and other students in his ING d class are designing these houses for a contest sponsored by the Ames Home Builders Association. The designs for the homes must be complete right down to the last electrical outlet. The landscaping must also be shown in the plan. When the 2-D design is finished, a 3-D drawing or model is made of the house. Gschneidner felt that the architectual drawing class “would help in buying a house, " and offers good preparation for someone interested in architecture as a college major.

No, choir members donated their time, not their voices, to run a concession stand at the ISU football games. With the profits they earned, the choir was able to purchase a set of coasters for the grand piano and a set of aluminum risers. The new risers were a nice improvement at the concerts given throughout the year. The first concert was the Holiday Festival of Music, featuring the concert band and the orchestra. There were many opportunities for choir members to perform throughout the year. The sophomore chorus gave four concerts at Ames High and the concert choir gave five. The treb le pops choir performed several times around the community. Members of the madrigal choir sang Old English carols at the Madrigal Dinner in the Memorial Union.

Art 68 " e 7 With growing interest in photography at Ames High, the old darkroom in the tine arts wing was getting a bit too crowded. So when the new IMC was built, adarkroom was incorporated into the structure. There are many advantages to the new darkroom, one being size. The new one can accommodate up to four people printing and four people developing film. Some people, however, still preferred the coziness of a one-person darkroom. As Pat Ellinghausen put it, " | like to be able to flip on the lights without worrying whether or not other people have their paper put away. " Still, efficiency and convenience prevail in the new darkroom, with each student having his or her own drawer and storage space for equipment. Ames High even went so far as to buy a print dryer, a film dryer and temperature controls. Other attractions include four new Bessler enlargers, a light-proof " hot box " for loading film into developing tanks and a light trap at the entrance. The darkroom is also set up for color photography, although little more than experimentation was done this year. Beginning photography students were able to graduate to the new darkroom only after proving their competency to art teacher Dorothy Gugel who teaches the course. " The new darkroom facilities will provide a greater opportunity for more students to participate in the class, commented Gugel. “We hope to start a new color photography class next year.” Left: FINISHING TOUCHES.

Art 69 Science 70 DOUBLE As the science department launched into the 1978 school year, it found itself faced with fewer full-time teachers to handle an increase of over 100 students. This meant that many teachers took on extra Classroom responsibilities, while the number of two-period physics and chemistry labs was halved. Charles Windsor, physics teacher, explained that the decreased lab time this year “let the student suffer a lot more.” One class that was expanded rather than cut, however, was computer science. The second year of the course saw a doubling in enrollment and a new microprocessor installed in the science IMC. This addition meant that students were no longer limited to using the time-sharing, remote terminal connected to the ISU computer. Nonetheless, students spent extensive out-of-class time competing fora chance to “run their programs. " “The course involved quite a bit of work if the program didn't run, " commented Tom Smithson.

With the addition of anew racquet facility, several students ረጋች enjoyed playing tennis in the middle of the winter. “The racquet club lets me enjoy tennis when it’s 20 below outside,” said one student.

Diverse was a word that could be used to describe the type of concerts that came to lowa this year. Music ranged from bluegrass to hard rock. Well- known artists shared the spotlight with lesser known individuals whose songs had not reached the top 40. Several famous groups and solo artists made stops at the lowa State Center. Gordon Lightfoot performed before two sell-out crowds at C. Y. Stephens Auditorium. Lightfoot, known for his distinctive country-folk-rock blend, played an 18-song set featuring his favorite pieces. The Moody Blues performed in front of over 11,000 peo ple at the Hilton Coliseum early in November.

Firefall brought some of their Rocky Mountain music to lowa. Many students made trips to Veteran’s Auditorium in Des Moines to hear various groups. REO Speedwagon and Rush were two of the more popular bands to make Des Moines part of their tours. Laurie Johnson, who attended the REO Speedwagon performance, remarked, “Even though I got hit in the neck with a frisbee, I still liked REO.” Randy Garrier said, “I’d rather go to Vet’s for a concert than Hilton, because Hilton has such a mellow atmosphere.” The biggest name the ISU Center attracted this yeär was superstar Billy Joel. A number of enthusiastic students skipped a night’s rest in order to get floor seats for the performance. Other Ames’ concerts included Harry Chapin, Phoebe Snow, Marshall Tucker and Firefall.

A Cablevision permit was granted for the Ames area. Cablevision had been voted down in previous years. A 1978 study conducted by the DOT estimated that raising the speed limit to 65 mph on the state's interstate highways would save close to ten lives per year. Ihe idea of raising the speed limit was disregarded, however, because it was not economically feasible. Governor Robert Ray signed a fuel tax nike that provided more than $50 million a year in additional money for Ihe construction and maintenance of streets and highways. This tax caused another boost in gas prices. lowa 5tate University made the decision to change from quarters to semesters in 1980. The university has been on the quarter system since 1918.

The two men pledged themselves to resolving the bitter conflict between their nations, but it was still months before a peace agreement was signed. Another change in international relationships occurred when the United States recognized China. As a result, Taiwan was left to fend for itself.

The worst accident in the history of U.S, nuclear power production took place in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, at a plant on Three Mile Island. For several days, radioactive steam and gas seeped into the atmosphere. The greatest threat was not the gases, but the potential danger of a melt-down, which could have caused a nuclear catastrophe. The danger subsided as the problem-causing gas bubble gradually reduced in size, but for many, the uneasiness remained. In an effort to gain independence from foreign oil imports, a mixture tried by American farmers in the 1930's was marketed. The blend of 90% gasoline and 10% alcohol, called gasohol, yields about the same mileage as unleaded gasoline, and contains a renewable source of energy. The continental United States experienced a solar eclipse on February 22. This was to be the last until the year 2017. In San Diego, the worst mid-air collision in the United States' history resulted in the death of 144 people. Another record no one wanted to set was established when the U.S. super- tanker Amoco Cadiz went down in heavy seas off Brittainy causing the biggest oil spill in history.

Ann Watson and Brad Jones were chosen as speakers by the 101st graduating class. Watson reminded the class of how far they had come since their elementary days. Jones told the class that he telt they were a close group, but they were also individuals. Some firecrackers were lit after the service ended, but for the most part the graduates limited themselves to frisbee throwing and confetti tossing.

" We MN x Graduation 95 | | | | | | Every spring, when underclassmen fill out class selections for the following year, they are reminded of the physical education requirement that, in order to graduate, they must successfully complete courses in swimming and health. Swimming and health are not the most popular courses with students. Many students are of the opinion that they are of little or no value. One girl listed the daily routine in swimming as " swim a few laps, then play water games. In fact, students taking swimming are not required to demonstrate their proficiency, because attendance is the sole factor in passing. Health class drew a similar response. While some found it informative, others felt it was only a rehashing of things they had learned in junior high. Many students opted to take emergency first aid to fulfill their health requirement. First aid met with a different response. Most people who took first aid took it to learn first aid, not to meet a requirement. First aid is a course designed to teach what to do in an emergency, so it is taken by people who are serious about the course. The administration's point of view on health and swimming is that they are valuable courses that can help later on in life. Vice-principal Bill Ripp said that swimming class is designed to teach non-swimmers to swim, and to let swimmers know what their limitations in their swimming ability are. The health class is set up to teach the students something about the body so they know what will harm it. There is another purpose in the classes. Ripp felt that we are a " nation of sports addicts who park as close to the stadium as possible.“ He thinks that it Is very important to be in as good a physical shape as possible and that the school has a responsibility in that regard.

In order to compensate for these reductions, the teacher load was increased. Dr. Ralph Farrar commented, “Ames High has always maintained a high quality of education because of the individual attention given to the students. This year we’re losing some of this. " When asked to explain the rationale and process he used to determine his recommendations on program and staffing, Farrar responded, “The recommendations for reductions were made with the intention of hurting as few staff members as possible, while retaining as much of the total program as possible. " Many staff members were unhappy about the increased teacher load. One faculty member said, " It is unrealistic to expect quality teaching from a person overloaded with large classes and extra assignments. The students suffer. " “The teacher-load increase is terrible, " said Terri Mickelson, Spanish teacher. “I have very little time for planning and I'm a physical wreck at the end of the day. " | Although students may not have noticed, some teachers were forced to assign less homework due to the larger number of students they were assigned. Keith Hilmer stated, “Requiring a teacher to be responsible for 177 or 184 students is too heavy a load. These numbers are too large to allow us to grade homework as frequently as desired. " Bill Enquist agreed. " Individual attention for the classroom is now nearly impossible, " he said. The staff was not entirely discontented or bitter, but instead held a concern about the quality of instruction they were able to give their students. Enquist concluded, “We have an excellent student body and a dedicated staff, in my opinion. I believe a different approach could be used by the administration and the board.” Left: TIGHT SQUEEZE.

In an effort to bring counseling services closer to students, Ammann recently organized the Student Support Service, a program composed of high-schoolers who have attended workshops and who now are available to help counsel or just listen to other students. " The program is still struggling, " says Ammann, " but it has been rewarding for those involved. " Ammann feels that " lots of kids are frightened because they think they must make one decision about their career instead of a series of decisions. " Ammann himself has changed careers several times. While still involved in his first career as a teacher, he obtained his M.A. in counseling. He decided he enjoyed that kind of work and accepted a position as a counselor at the high school.

" It's good for us — it keeps us fresh,” he explains. Besides teaching a wide variety of English courses, Carlson has also taught vocational agriculture. He enjoyed teaching English more, though, and earned his M.A. in the subject. After his second year teaching here, Carlson was offered the chance to go to Germany and teach in an American school. " We only planned to stay for two years, " says Carlson. " Instead, we stayed for six!” He and his family travelled extensively during those years, visiting almost all the countries of Europe. " It was wonderful, " he recalls. " You grow so much just from seeing the different ways of life — different art, architecture, and people. Those years were a definite highlight in my life. " Carlson seems to enjoy his career as It Is right now.

Therefore, she selected modern dance instruction as her career goal. She remembers feeling competitive while in high school. Now she believes that individual improvement is most important and tries to stress this to her students. The most challenging part of her job is trying to accommodate the wide variety of interests displayed by the 180 students enrolled in modern dance classes. Kautzky feels that “modern dance is so adaptable " that each student can have his her own individual program. Unfortunately, limited class time makes this an impossibility. Instead, she tries to “throw out teasers” of information that will arouse each student's interest in modern dance. In ten years, Kautzky would still like to be teaching modern dance, but within that time period she would also like to attain a dance therapy degree. This type of therapy is based on the concept of creating a positive mental and physical self-image through dance. Faculty 113 Above: Cecil Spatcher — biology B.

Also she says, “When they get out of my class, | want students to have broadened a little bit and to be more accepting of other cultures.” If Mickelson could change anything about her job, she would alter it so that she spent more time with her students on an individual basis.

It was while he was in high school that Smalling decided he wanted to be a coach because he especially wanted to deal with kids. “I was a good student, but | had fun,” he says. | was always mad because | had such curly hair, though!” Smalling feels that the most important facet of his job as athletic director is making it possible for everybody — coaches, students and administrators — to work together. " My philosophy,” he says, “is that ‘a rising tide raises all ships.' In other words, nobody should knock down other people just to get ahead. It hasn't been a problem in Ames though — there's been great cooperation. " As Smalling begins his partial retirement this year (he plans to substitute teach), he reaffirms his basic belief that “if everyone plays their best in a game, there are no losers.

The senior squad was named “GABBS” after the initials of their coaches. The junior-soph squad took the name of “Dura Mater’ meaning “tough mother.” Both teams were coached by senior varsity football players. Practices Audrey Betts included hitting the sled, learning plays, Mark Birdseye and scrimmaging. “ The GABBS success can be attributed to an organized, well-built squad,” said Laura Jennings. Their offense was led by quarterback Marcia Moore. Moore said, “We practiced our plays against a good Kirk Blau defense. That really paid off during the Phil Bohnkamp game.” Elly Chaplik, a member of the defense, felt that the senior girls “were out to win at any cost. We wanted to win Decause it was our last year.

The soap opera scene seemed very popular among seniors as classroom conversations tended to lean towards what was happening on “General.” However, more seniors appeared partial to zanier shows like Mork and Mindy, Delta House, Saturday Night Live, Second City TV, and Muppet Show. Some serious-minded students enjoyed the more lifelike series such as 60 Minutes, Paper Chase, Lou Grant, and One Day at a Time. “| like to watch One Day at a Time because | put myself in Barbara's place and pretend that I’m on the show, " explained Vanessa Schubert. A few students seldom watched TV for the shows but for the special movies or reports that were occasionally aired. “| usually never watch television unless there is a movie or something especially good on, " explained one senior. “Most shows are pretty stupid.

Guys as well as girls had to dish out between eight and twelve dollars for a cut during the 78-79 school year. For Mike Kennedy this became expensive because, “I have to get it cut a lot during the basketball season. " Styles and lengths were often determined by the amount of time people were willing to spend on their hair. Linda Sutter said, " I spend around a half-hour washing and styling my hair.” Brenda Lorenz solved the time problem by getting a perm at the cost of thirty dollars. Lorenz explained, “It’s so easy to take care of: all | have to do is wash it.” Some students refused to pay so much for so little. They either let it run wild or had their moms cut it.

No longer could students consider such things as movies to be inexpensive forms of entertainment. Movie theaters found it necessary to raise admission to three dollars, causing students to become more selective about which movies were worth viewing. Bowling, pizza and gas prices all increased due to inflation, limiting students in their entertainment choices. Athletic events supplied many hours of enjoyment to those who preferred not to participate. Diane Anderson commented, “| bet | spent most of my weekends sitting on bleachers.” Television provided still another alternative to the shelling out of hard earned dollars in return for a few hours of fun. Sledding, frisbee and picnics were activities which required no money but did demand the cooperation of the weather.

This was the new legislation which raised the legal drinking age from 18 to 19 years old. This law took effect on July | 1978. Seniors were directly affected by this change, which prompted them to seek Out new avenues of weekend enjoyment. Many seniors did not let legality interfere with their plans. [hey found ways in which to make the new legislation nothing more than a hurdle on-the road to adulthood. Many attended keggers where the beverages served lacked the quality of those found in local bars, but were plentiful. There were those who were repulsed by the taste of keg beer and found other means of acquiring alconolic beverages. Older brothers, sisters and triends were often more than willing to provide refreshment for those brew-thirsty individuals who found it impossible to wait a year. Fake ID’s and mature looks resulted in the consumption of still more liquor, as many students chose to ignore the new legislation. Upper Left: PREPARATION.

In certain places, especially after football games, the campus more closely resembled a landfill than a high school. Garbage carried by the wind landed in nearby residents’ yards. This resulted in a letter of complaint to Dr. Farrar, who appealed to the students to improve their habits. But apathy prevailed, and warnings of loss of open campus privileges were handed down by the | administration. Homeroom clean-up days were held. The school grounds were split up into small areas, and homerooms, armed with Hefty bags, went to work. These exercises helped, but by no means solved the problem. Kermith Harrington remarked facetiously, “I think grounds clean-up should be a required course for sophomores.” “We have a nice school and it should be kept that way by all the students,” said Carolyn Potter. Other students rationalized their sloppiness by saying, “there aren't enough trash cans. " The excuses and the litter still remain, despite efforts to combat them. Right: MASTER.

However, for most students they remained pipe dreams. A few students had the opportunity to voyage to warmer climates. Devon Hintz spent a month in Panama. Kirk Pruhs basked in the sun for two weeks in Jamaica. And Paul Heil, carrying on a family tradition of sorts, went to the Dominican Republic with his parents. In past years he has traveled to Central America, Africa and the Orient. Most students, though, had to devise less extravagant means of Escape. The ski trips for the various grades provided the winter-sports-minded an escape from the confines of Ames, if not from the snow. Peter Banitt and Dave Johnson, ski buffs extraordinaire, continued their tradition of going to Colorado each year to ski with their families.

The parking permit program was started during the 1977-1978 school year. Students were required to buy stickers if they wished to park in any of the AHS parking lots. The $3 fee was used to pay Lloyd Dresser, the parking lot attendant. Dresser was hired to prevent vandalism, which had been occurring quite frequently. Many students didn’t know that the real reason for the attendant was to protect their cars. Students felt that their hard- earned money was simply used to pay the salary of someone whose only function was to make sure their car was properly marked. " | don't know why he's out there — probably to catch sophomores sneaking out of the building, " said Jeff Seaton. " | hate to spend all that money just to park my car, " commented Rhonda Thurman. “I think buying a parking permit is stupid.

Student Support Service's main purpose is to provide an alternate form of help when a student, for various reasons, may not want to talk to an adult. All counselling is done by the students, but it's not really counselling. Students on Student Support Service are trained just to listen, not to offer any advice. In the tuture, the Student Support Service plans to have its own room and to stay rather low-kev. Said Starleaf, “We don't want a lot of attention. " Devon Hintz, one of the original members of the group, said that a problem with Student Support Service was that not very many people took it seriously. " Many people associate us with counselling and that turns them off. They're also afraid of coming to talk with fellow students because they're atraid of being put down. " But of course that's not the objective. " To be a friend and a listener when there's a problem, that's our objective,” said Starleaf. Upper Left: LUNCH.

The team, which practiced eight months of the year, held its first sessions in Des Moines from midnight until 2:00 a.m. each weekend. During the winter months, practice was switched to outdoor rinks in Ames. A usual practice consisted of scrimmages, warm-up drills and distance skating, regardless of the weather. Besides being hard work, hockey proved to be an expensive sport. “We play about 45 games each season, 30 of them out of state,” said Rikel Hoffman. “Each team member spends about $600 a year on equipment and traveling. The rest of the expenses are covered by fund raisers and donations to the club. " Admittance to all of Ames High's games was free, but student support was far from strong. As to their future, Hoffman commented, " Next year our practices will be held in the new ice arena. Our games will be before the ISU hockey matches.

To become a member, a person must work 100 hours on a drama production, either on or off stage, and have approval of Mr. Hansen, the troupe sponsor. New members are nominated after each play, and the extremely devoted member, an Honor Thespian, has worked 600 hours. The Thespians worked hard to raise money for the new auditorium sound system, bought with the Modern Dance Club. Bake sales, raking leaves, selling valentines and painting faces at Art in the Park were various projects. Thespians wasn't all work. The group also attended theater productions by other players, enjoyed a spring picnic, and finished the year with an awards banquet. “Thespians is an interest club for people who are interested in theater,” said Thespian president, Ellen Westerlund.: “As a sophomore, | worked hard to become a Thespian, and was overjoyed to be a member. " Some students got even more excited about the honor. As Michelle Faas put it, " When I found out that l'd been made a member, | started screaming in the middle of the lobby!” Upper Right: GO FISH.

Commented one student, “Getting to know people will be exceptionally fun.” For Sally Shaver, high school has been the “best years " because " | won't have any big responsibilities for these three years. But once | leave home, I'll have to work, goto school,. . .and pay the bills.” Michelle Mercier felt that her first year at Ames High taught her a lot about her priorities, and Ann Harris said, " It's the most fun, and you’re treated like a person.” The other side of the story went. something like this: One student said, “l hate to study and | think my life now (in high school) isboring.” Nathalie Bush felt that she “was more acquainted with the students and teachers at Central. | don't like not knowing everybody. " The “rookies’ " first year may have been influenced by the hard time that upperclassmen have been known to give them, but as some counselors have said to their students, “You get out of it (high school), what you put in it.” Upper Left: CAUGHT.

In addition to the student-created tradition of coming to self-scheduling a half an hour early, registration itself ‚usually took from 15 to 30 minutes. That hour must have been worth it, because few students were willing to change to a computer schedule. The computer, as B. J.

Most students found homework in high school different than in junior high. Said Laura Rickard, “It’s a little harder, but if it wasn’t, we wouldn't be learning anything.” The results of a student poll showed, " that the average student spent about an hour and twenty minutes on homework each day. For many students, homework didn't get any harder, it just took longer. “It’s mostly busy work,” commented Clark Huinker. For Elaine Dennis, homework was more difficult “only because I'm trying harder at it, and | don’t have as much time to do it.” For those with jobs, it often became difficult to get homework done. Randy Wooldridge said, “You just have to get used to doing it when you get home.” Eighty percent of the students surveyed had more homework than in previous years.

For many sophomores, getting a job was a way to get more freedom for themselves. The extra money gave them the chance to get out of the house more Olten, to go out for entertainment, instead of staying home. | Most ot the working students maintained their jobs to provide themselves with spending money so they didn't have to rely on their parents. But some saved their money for college or a Car and spent very little on themselves. Some students found it hard to keep a job and spend sufficient time on their homework assignments. Jennifer Martin said that even though she enjoyed her job at Happy Joes, it often conflicted with her studies. Almost 60 percent of the jobs held by sophomores were in restaurants. Many businesses didn’t hire workers that were below the age of 16, so some students found their first jobs as sophomores. For others, it was easier to get a better job with higher pay after turning 16. Commented one sophomore, “A job involves a lot of responsibilities and it takes up a lot of time, but the overall experience is definitely worth it.” Upper Left: BLEEP, BLIP.

For many students, in between basketball games, play rehearsals, and parties, there was always: time for a good movie. Last year provided a variety of movies, including such favorites as the musical hit, “Grease,” Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase’s “Foul Play,” and the thriller, “Halloween.” Probably the biggest hit with high school students was the sell- out comedy, “Animal House,” starring John Belushi. The price of enjoyment rose with inflation, when theaters increased ticket prices from $1.00 to $1.25 for students and a 50¢ hike to $3.00 for adults. Once in the theater, many students found the tempting aromas from the snack bar too hard to pass up. Commented Deb Frye, “A movie without popcorn is like the Lone Ranger without his mask.” In pleasant spring and fall weather, students can be found crammed into vehicles at the ever-popular drive-in. Said Ann Wheelock, “It’s a great place to go, either with a group or on a date.” Upper Right: GETTING READY. The pied piper the band room, Laura McPhail, warms up for a fall concert.

That was the opinion expressed by many sophomores when the day finally arrıved to go down to the Department of Transportation to get that long- awaited driver’s license. Driving meant different things to different people. “| drive mostly to run errands and to cart other people around, " said Angela Bendorf. For others, cars became prized possessions and necessities for everyday living. “It's nice not to have to wait around for a ride. You can just get up and go when you need to, " commented Robin McHone. Many agreed that having their license was a big advantage, and gave them more independence. But others realized that the advantage was sometimes outweighed by the responsibility. One sophomore said, “When | drive, | cant get as rowdy as the rest of the people in the car. I’m responsible for the car, and the people in it. | have to pay attention to my driving and not what's going on around me.” After suffering through behind-the- wheel, simulator and classroom, a driver’s license in the wallet brought forth opportunities for many new students.

Brian Mulhall tries to get rid of a touchdown, while a defender beats the ground in Great team speed, hard hitting and desire characterized this year’s sophomore football team (conference champs). Those three things distinguished this team from all other sophomore teams that have come through Ames High, according to head coach Dale Tramp. Tramp also pointed out some of the weaknesses of the team: " This team had several factors going against it. Mainly, they were not very big; they were not ነ overly powerful and they had not | established a winning tradition. " Tramp added that because of their speed and the way they controlled the line of scrimmage, the offensive line took the front seat over the defensive line and the offensive backfield. Another key factor in the successful sophomore season was established in the game against Mason City. The loss created a concern that overcame the whole squad. After that game, the performances turned in were much improved, climaxing in a victory over Marshalltown. Said Tramp, “I thought they (Marshalltown) had better material, yet were never in the game. " Bill Beavers led the team in tackles with a total of 70.5, an average of 7.8 per game. Nick Henson was second with 63.5, a 7.1 average and Darwin Trickle was third with 55, a 6.1 average. Brian Mulhall was the team's leading rusher, carrying the ball 79 times for a 480-yard total. He gained an average of six yards every time he touched the ball, scoring 66 points, and leading the team to an 8-1 record.

Under head coach John Sletten, the team captured the Big Eight Conference title and the AA District title. The harriers encountered some problems, however, at the state meet, held in Cedar Rapids. Despite excellent times in the district meet, the Ames High runners suffered a let-down at state and finished in fourth place with mnnut IH below-par times. Varsity standout Dave Jensen had this to say about the team’s overall performance: “We went into the season with a positive attitude, and it really showed throughout the season.

The team was the first in Ames High history to garner an undefeated dual meet record. “There was no one standout,” commented Wittmer. “We had a total team effort. All of the girls turned in super performances. ` Those " super performances " included one individual state championship and one state record in the 50 yard freestyle turned in by Leslie Richards. Six school marks fell as the season progressed: diving, Missy Karas; the 100-yard breast stroke, Joan Ditzel; the 200-yard medley relay (Sharna Robinson, Dorrie Gorman, Ditzel and Richards): the 100-yard freestyle, Richards and the 400-yard freestyle relay (Richards, Gorman, June Millard and Kay Kirkland). The team captured their fifth straight Big Eight title and finished first in the district. Even though they came in third in the state meet, Wittmer was not disappointed with the season. “We defeated the defending state champion of Nebraska, Omaha Westside, in our own Little Cyclone Invitational, " beamed Wittmer. “| think that’s quite an accomplishment.

It was commonly used by people who want to increase their jumping power. One person who obviously benefited from the leaper was high jumper Kirk Hoff. When Hoff was on a weight program using the leaper, he found that at the end of the season his vertical jump was four inches higher. Unfortunately, the leaper was broken during the 1979 season. Another person who enjoyed the rewards of a good workout was Mark Birdseye. “After every workout, | feel like a better person; it relaxes me and makes me feel a lot better,” said Birdseye.

The accomplishment came as Ames won all its major meets. The disappointment came in the state meet, where the Little Cyclones finished ninth. Ames started out the season with high hopes, most of which were justified as AHS recovered all the titles they had lost the year before. In districts, Ames High qualified in twelve events. Ames, like other schools, was hurt by a rule permitting only the top two finishers from each district to qualify. Galen Hathcock, for example, had a time that was better than any of the other districts, but he did not qualify becuase he finished third in the districts. “Of course, all teams have been chopped up; it isn't just Ames, " commented Coach John Sletten. Sprinter Jim Thompson thought the season went well. “| was really pleased about our team unity and because we went undefeated through conference. Without our unity, we wouldn't have done as well.

Those words accurately described the kind of season the AHS golfers had. The Little Cyclones struggled through the regular season with a 2-8 record. “We played some tough teams during the regular season,” said Coach Dave Hartman. “That competition became evident in the sectional.” The Little Cyclones entered the sectional with a deceivingly poor record. The team finished second inthe sectional, advancing to the districts. It was the first time since 1972 that the boys’ golf team had made it out of the sectional meet. “In the early going we weren't very good, but in the later meets we started to put things together, " commented Mike Kennedy. The Ames High golfers felt optimistic about their post-season meets. Hartman said, " We have a good chance of advancing some players to the state meet. " Upper Left: LINING IT UP.

Ellis Softball 223 (3 Residing in a community which boasts a major university does have many advantages, one of which is the opportunity to attend the various athletic events of the school. Ames is a town that falls in this category. lowa State University, a member of the Big Eight Conference, offered Ames High students a vast spectrum of spectator sports this year. In.the fall, football was the big sport on both the Ames High and lowa State campuses. Popularity of football at lowa State increased immensely in the last few years because of the team’s vast improvement on the gridiron. Under the leadership of Earle Bruce, now head coach at Ohio State, lowa State won 24 of their 33 regular season games. Many Ames High students took advantage of the Cyclone’s fruitful 8-3 season by traveling to Birmingham, Alabama, on December 20, to see the Hall of Fame Bowl game. Ames High students also had the chance to view Cyclone basketball, wrestling, gymnastics and hockey at the Hilton Coliseum in the lowa State Center. The lowa State Cyclones ended their basketball season in 1977 with a second place finish in the conference and a 16- 11 overall record. They posted a disappointing 13-14 overall record anda second division finish in the conference this year. This year lowa State hosted the NCAA Wrestling Championships in March. Ames High students had the chance to see the country’s top collegiate wrestlers grapple for each of the ten individual weight class championships. ms 0 e — . ET LLL bti — cm سد Team championships were also decided as lowa won its fourth national championship in the last five years. lowa State placed second and had one national champion, Kelly Ward at 158 Ibs.

Downtown at 424 Main St. North Grand at 723 24th St. COSTS At the beginning of the 1978-1979 school year, two homerooms from each grade were given a survey concerning students’ number one expenses. The results were somewhat surprising. Out of the 100 students surveyed, 35% (the largest percentage) said that their biggest expense was clothing. Car payments and gas came ina close second; food took third place. Some other answers that were submitted, but didn't place in the top three, were entertainment, saving money for trips and college, hobbies and pets. One junior commented that she spent about one two-week paycheck every month on her horse. She pays for boarding and feeding it, and gas used for driving out to the farm where it stays. One senior reported, “| spend almost ten dollars per week on food — mostly just snacking!” According to the survey, 3576 of the students spent under five dollars per week on food; 45% spent between five and ten dollars per week; 15% spent between ten and fifteen dollars. Only 5% estimated that they spend over fifteen dollars per week on food. Several students who answered that clothing was their number one expense, claimed that they received some sort of help from “mom and dad. " Some got a clothes allowance or use of a credit card every once in a while. As one sophomore put it, “I can relax with mom and dad's Master Charge!

Gas, for one thing, stole headlines with its almost daily price increases. In many places gasoline soared to one dollar per gallon for the first time. Although lowa may not have been hit as hard as some other more populated states, students felt the crunch. Pat Ellinghausen complained, " It takes almost a dollar now to fill up my moped!” Gum-chewing students noticed the increase when some popular bubble gum brands raised their prices near the beginning of the year from 20 cents to 25 cents. Penny candy isn't a penny anymore either. It's two cents and up to five cents at some places. For the most part, penny candy is a thing of the past. Fast food places, like a lot of other restaurants, raised their prices this year. Lots of stores had to raise their prices to pay their employees after the minimum wage went up in January. “When minimum wage went up, | thought | would be making a lot more money at work, " reported Deb Frahm, “but now they just take out more for taxes and social security. Clothes prices went up again this year, too. “| never thought l'd ever pay 35 dollars for a pair of jeans,” remarked one senior girl, “but | did this year! " Cheryl Hanson added, “Swimming suits are so high priced this season | can't believe it! It seems like the smaller they are, the more expensive they are! Among other students hit by inflation were the senior girls with open campus passes who often went out during their free periods in the morning for coftee. One remarked that the price of coftee had gone up about 20 cents since they began their morning excursions. “It's almost worth it to stay at school and study!” لخم ve‏ Un‏ Ads we um me See Darsi Clem is in charge of the many gift items found in lo y s Corner.

WALT’S K Mart Center, 620 Lincoln Way, 221 Main HU IPIDEJE IE; Crowded stores with accessible exits are best. The favored time of year is the Christmas season, when shopkeepers and clerks are usually busy with other customers and not as likely to notice if a few items mysteriously disappear from the store. In 1978, those " few items, " stolen from businesses across the nation, added up to approximately $32 billion worth of loss to retailers. And even though four million shoplifters are apprehended each year, it is believed that for every one that gets caught, 34 more go free. It would be easy to ignore this phenomenon and simply sympathize with store-owners about their losses except for one important fact: the most efficient way for retailers to make up for all the money they lose is to raise their prices. Therefore, all those who don't shoplift pay the price for those who do. So, what is being done now to cope with the situation? Business persons have devised several different methods to handle it. Richard Dobbs, co-owner of the Coach House Gifts chain of stores, trains the clerks that work for him to " approach customers and make them aware that they are clerks, in order to deter them from shoplifting. " Recently, a new device known as a “little black box” has been put to use in some stores. It was invented by Hal C. Becker, Ph.D., and consists of a cassette player that receives, mixes, and transmits material from two different sources. The usual background music of department stores plays at a " conscious " noise level, just as it does in other stores. Underneath the music though, there is another transmitted message: a voice, repeating, “Be honest ... Do not steal... | am honest... | will not steal... etc.” It plays at such a low volume that it affects only the subconscious, where it’s stored away until it's needed. Officials believe.it has helped to cut shoplifting in stores using the system by 30 percent.

Well, the results of a survey taken at the beginning of the vear showed that a majority of students had regular jobs. Out of all the students surveyed, 54% said they worked at one (or more) jobs all vear around. Also 3096 answered that they only worked during the summer, while 14% only worked during the school vear. Less than 296 surveyed didn't work at all. Students who didn't work at regular iobs found their own ways to make money. A few students shared their profitable ideas. “| ኣዩ typed several reports every semester — usually for seniors who are too busy to do it themselves, or for other students who couldn't type. " One junior reported, " I took a lot of kids to school during the winter in my car and charged them for the gas. " One student claimed to have a " Midas touch " and didn't need to work. “| just touch some things, turn them to gold, and sell them! " From the students who did work at regular jobs, 70% reported that they were paid minimum wage; 20% were paid less than the minimum wage. Only 1096 received wages higher than minimum. Manv seniors who worked during the school year acquired their jobs through DECA (Distributive Education). Students interested in a career In business were given the opportunity to apply for the DECA class at the end of their junior year. As seniors, the students who were accepted were placed at job sites in their area of interest, if they weren't already working. “I’m glad | took DECA this year,” said lisa Jenison, “I liked my job and I learned how to do my own income tax reports!” Ads 245 1 t father outside of the family business, E 3 4 22222: .حصا‎ a Prem س2‎ 4. -4- ! imus we 0 " Nancy Anteil joir Hh | ጮ ےا a. ‏ — سس —— — Té E Theatrical Shop — y Dance Supplies ww, A NIR Shoes SEE US for: Masks-Hats-Wigs wedding stationery ae and Gymnastic Supplies job resumes Theatrical Shop campus printing 208 HAYWARD AMES IOWA 292-3502 Leotards- Tights 301-2 Kellogg 232-3369 3134 Northwood 232-3993 BJS e Form - A 0 Kim Jones arranges the waterfall display at her place of employment, AP» ze HUE | ١ ም Mary Kay's Flowers G Gifts Bob Baker models one of the many tuxedos available at BJ’s Formal Wear. 111 Lynn 292-2788 Ads 246 Ba LR |. —— m có o “ብጠ " oe e Wës ac 2 ما وک‎ Mary Kay's Flowers Gifts. 4 ጠም” ee a oo o tt y. ዘ ده‎ A - CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 1979 PYLE PHOTO SERVICE KODACOLOR Il BLACK WHITE ONE DAY PROCESSING DONE LOCALLY IN OUR AMES PLANT 121 MAIN ST. 232-7363 Rick Roberts is ready to help at Carr Hardware. |. CARR HARDWARE OVER 15.000 ITEMS FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE 306 Main 232-6324 س A common employer of Ames High students was their parents, Students worked for their parents either because they were waiting for a better job opportunity or because their parents work appealed to them. Many students interviewed had worked for their parents before they were In high school. Ellen Pyle said she had been working with her father at Pyle's Photo Service since she was five years old but didn't start working with customer s until she was ten. When students were asked if they liked working for their parents, the unanimous answers was, “Sometimes.” Debbie Sorenson remarked, “Sometimes | can choose my own hours, but if someone is ill or doesn't show up, then | get to take his place. " The reason most students gave for working with their parents was, “l needed the money. " Looking toward the future for employment is important in high school. When Ricky Ely was asked If he thought his parents would someday leave him their business, he simply replied, “| hope not.” Kim Blackburn said, “If | wanted my parents’ business they would leave it to me, but | don't want it because | don't want to be a pharmacist. " Linda Jones was more receptive to the idea of inheriting the family business. When asked the same question, she replied, " Yes, maybe. " Students who worked for their parents reaped many benefits besides the monev. Because of the close association with the business, the students were able to gain an extra insight into the organization of the business. Ads 247 „The Competitors 202 S.

Besides the harmless pranks there were other, more destructive acts. There were several incidents of fireworks and a large amount of spray-painting. A “79” was painted on the top of the swimming pool, and there was writing other places on and around the school. The writing on the building will have to be sandblasted off and the writing on the windows will have to be scraped off. Farrar said that most of the people involved in the painting had been caught. They must pay for the cost of removing the paint. Graffitti were also spray-painted In other parts of the city. Although this was done by high school students, the community will pay for removing It. The school must pay for the vandalism if someone isn't caught. One large window and several small ones were broken at a total cost of $500-600. Other expenses for vandalism came from stolen fire extinguishers and broken desks. Students often were victims of theft. Calculators, books and gym clothes were common items taken by thiets. The school also lost $1000 worth ot balance scales from the science department. Farrar said that the thefts and vandalism run in definite cycles; there is always an increase at the end of the nine-weeks and at the end of the semesters. " It is a release for students frustrations,” said Farrar. Ads 249 me —— — pm =-፦ መወ ዐ0 . መድ 9 em መጻ 4 MINI PRICED " ann ١ | +} Ar EV T 1 | Cae D.

Y A A ኣኻ ነባ In this era of double-digit inflation, it is not unusual for a person to hold down j more than one job, and Ames High teachers are no exception. Many faculty members moonlight during the summer or after school hours at jobs which have little or nothing to do with teaching. RADIO-TV-AUDIO Sales, Service and Rentals Associate principal Bill Ripp manages the food concessions at ISU football games, a job which he estimates takes about 25 to 30 hours per week. Ripp has worked at the food concession for 15 Courteous, Expert, Reliable years and receives a regular salary plus a Service commission. | Dave Fleming, counselor, spends a large 1 share of his summers at the Ames Golf and Country Club, organizing the tennis programs and maintaining the courts. Fleming, who charges $6 per half hour 108 Havward for private tennis lessons, explains why 292-5963 he took a second job, “By the end of | school | need a change of pace. By the | time school starts, I'm ready to get into counseling again.” P.E. teacher Mike Wittmer doesn't limit | himself to just one extra job. He has painted houses and worked at Carr's pool, Red Cross classes and Amateur Athletic Union swimming. Tom Jorgensen also moonlights ai more than one job. He scouts for basketball teams and plays the piano at dinner clubs, conventions and resort areas. His scouting fee is a flat $50 plus expenses, and he can expect to take home between $40 and $100 a night entertaining. “Some people may think entertaining is fun and easy. It is enjoyable but also hard work,” says Jorgensen. Lnd | —— T N Un ፦፦ Ads AT e un 0 = Malcom Moberly and Sheri ` ጠው” ١ o SA » T pec 6...

Unfortunately, inflation increased the cost per album by at least a dollar compared with the previous year. Bonnie Hammer complained, “If | bought all the albums I really wanted, | wouldn't have enough money to do anything except sit around the house. Some of the prices are just ridiculous, so | just buy the ones | like a lot.” Cheryl Hansen commented, “If you think albums are expensive in Ames you should see the prices in Europe. It costs ten to twelve bucks for one album.” Some people forked over the money anyway. “We buy ourselves some good tunes and have a good party. It's worth the money,” said Missy Ward and Kari Binkley. Other students found alternatives to the rising costs. Bruce Bruene explained, “| steal albums from my friends and tape them or else just keep them. If | buy one, | go to COOP; they're the cheapest.” Another factor that contributed to the rising costs of some albums was the gimmicks that some album companies Came up with, such as special edition albums in different colors or with pictures on them. For example, the Beatles “White Album” was re-released on white vinyl. One bargain that album hunters could take advantage of was the cut-out albums. They could be bought at almost any record outlet. Even though album prices soared, it didn’t slow sales. Albums remained a high priority on many students’ buying lists. Ads 253 mber FDIC Downtown, Fifth anc Burnet!

AHS students and faculty could be found betting in a variety of places and for numerous reasons this year. lon Klatt commented, “I like to play poker — not for money but for the socializing; you know, just friendly get- togethers. leff Mann, an ex-poker player, admits, " I quit betting because | always lose all my money. " The gambling stakes were not always money, however. Vanessa Shubert said, “The most I'll ever bet is a piece of gum because | can never win. " “When | bet, it's usually for food,” said Karen Brady. For the gambling members of the boys’ swim team, coach Mike Wittmer's annual mid-winter poker party was something to look forward to. “Coach’s party was the highlight of the season, " remarked one tanker. [he sports fans among the faculty members also found time for a little betting on the side. Several teachers joined in a pool to place bets on sporting events such as the girls' state tournament. Some students preferred to bet on things which took a certain amount of skill. Marc Morton said, " It's great to find some sucker who doesn't know how to play pool, and just take him for everything he's got. Of course, sometimes it works the other way around.

For starters, each senior had to pay ten bucks for what is referred to as a “senior obligation.” The senior fee breakdown went something like this: cap and gown, $4.50; tassle which the senior keeps, 50 cents; class reunion, $1.50; senior class picnic, $1.00; senior gift, $1.00; roses for senior girls, 50 cents; baccalaureate costs, $1.00. In accordance with a school board ruling earlier in the year, religious ceremonies such as baccalaureate could no longer be a part of the school- sponsored graduation events. The dollar was refunded to any senior who requested it, or else it was considered a donation to the service. Seniors also found themselves faced with bills for announcements, class keys, name cards, memory albums and other graduation paraphernalia. Some sort of reception for the benefit of friends and relatives was probably another item tallied up under graduation expenses. Fortunately, for most graduates, the receptions were paid for out of someone else's pocket namely parents. And finally, that time-honored tradition of senior pictures added a sizeable amount to total senior outlay. MN 5 “4 Ads ` | 1 ١ ١ | | | | | 4 ١ | ለ [ 5 PROF] For some students, a Job was in the form of fast-food employment. But in Merle Garman’s business organization and management classes, students were given a chance to use their talents to create a job of their own. The students began their money- making projects by investing money in any needed equipment, setting prices for goods and services, and advertising. Brad Spratt, who chose to make metal plates that protected the gas caps on the back of mopeds for his money-raiser, found that his good advertising brought in enough orders to keep him selling the product even after the class assignment was completed. The self-made businesses brought various degrees of success to the class members. One student, Tim Cox, ran a delivery service for a week. His neighbors liked the idea of letting someone else do their last-minute grocery shopping, and Cox earned $45. Linda Bond also found her services in demand when she began to make mints for graduation open houses and wedding receptions. Bond estimated earnings of $3.20 an hour, and even had business cards printed up to aid her advertising. She felt that the project was a good experience, and though there was so much work and time involved, the project was a success. After investing money in a local corporation for her fund-raiser, Lisa Anderson had plans to “watch her money grow " for a year, then to have it returned with $100 in interest. Students enjoyed the profits from satisfying work, finding that a job was not just uniforms and greasy food. Far Left: ERRANDS.

High school boys with low grade points and expensive cars got the worst deal, since they were considered a bad risk. Their rates were even higher than the normally inflated rates for high schoolers. Many students who paid for their own insurance carried collision, liability and comprehensive coverage, but some found an alternative. “My insurance premiums are high, but one way that | keep them down is to drive without collision or comprehensive. | just have liability, " commented Ann Manatt. “My insurance premiums are high compared to what | can afford,” said Tom Riggs. " They aren't high compared to some other people's though. " “| had the school sign a paper from my insurance company saying that | had a B average or better, and that helped lower my rates a bit, " explained one girl. Many students who were dissatisfied with their high insurance premiums had simply not looked for ways to cut costs. Possible ways included: 1. Driving without collision or comprehensive insurance for an older vehicle. 2. Taking a larger deductible on collision and comprehensive Insurance. 3. Asking for discounts for good erades and low mileage. Other students tended to shrug ofí the high cost of auto insurance. In the words of Craig Stromer, “It’s a fact of life.

The new interest in this class might be attributed to the fact that students are buying more albums, more T-shirts, looking through more magazines, seeing more posters and liking the graphic kinds of things that they are seeing, maybe not realizing that some graphic person somewhere is responsible for it. Another possible reason for the new increase in enrollment for the class might be its versatility. Students work with a variety of mediums, ranging from markers, ink, and colored pencils to some photography. Students also try doing a few paste-ups for their own ads of products they have made up. Cartooning and embossing are also introduced in the course. The advanced graphics class worked with the school newspaper a few times during the second semester, illustrating a few of the articles. " That was a good experience, " said Michelle Ward, “l liked seeing some of my work in the paper. " The class taught by Mrs. Hagart, tries to include in each semester a little bit of a lot of things. Printed materials like magazines and newspapers, posters, logos and letterheads, and some art history are a few of the things covered. One thing stressed in the class is the fact that an advertisement must catch the reader's attention right away. There are several tactics that are used to capture an audience. The use of different colors, different shapes, and abstract spaces, and how they affect the reader's attention are discussed. ` The class also works toward the idea of simple design. Ads shouldn't be so busy that it takes a reader a long time to figure out what is for sale, although that may be one way to capture the reader's attention, making him want to read on. Ads like that have to carefully done so the audience wants to read them, but will not get lost in the process. Of course the ultimate goal is to get the reader to want to go out and buy the product.
