Chris Volker tests out his ideas on his government class during elec- tion day. | Students found themselves tested in almost every area oÍ their lives. At school, there were units of assignments often followed by tests so that instructors could insure the pub- lic that the school system was fulfilling its duty to them. students in extracurricular activities and those with jobs found their skill, ability to get along with others and responsibility tested in varying degrees. Relationships with family and friends con- stantly shifted as they were tested in many different ways ranging from borrowing the car to determining the guest list for a party. Not only were students tested, but their instructors were periodically evaluated by administrators in an effort to keep up the standard of education at Ames High. The school system, with its eight period day, was reviewed by the school board. In an attempt to cut costs, a seven period day was proposed and voted down for 1981-82. Despite a variety in students' activities, nearly all were “put to the test " at some time. Opening 5 Above left TAKING A BREATHER.

Students often felt pressure from their par- ‘ents fo get good grades ог to excel in sports and activities. Many times students had con- | flicting activities and had to decide which was more important. Because of the competi- | tion for time, homework was not always a high priority. Employers and teachers didn't agree on how students should spend their evenings. Caught i in the middle was the stu- - dent with a minimum amount of time and | є сре ectati ons from both ends. Students felt adult expectations, but their friends played a crucial role in determining how they felt about each test. Among some students, academic excellence was held in high esteem. Others valued school involvement, while some regarded vocational training as important. The way students dressed, acted and became involved could be credited in part to the values of their friends. The challenge of meeting tests confused stu- dents as conflicting expectations complicated their performances.

Е Ф. + Even with different results expected from them, when it came to students facing tests, an inevitable question arose; “How did they measure ир?” Students constantly faced norms established Dy other students, siblings, former employees and even standards they previously set them- selves as they met many tests through the year. They were familiar with being ranked on performance and were quick to discover what was “average” and what was " above " or “below” in each testing situation. Those who passed received praise, scholarships, good grades, a chance to play varsity or a raise. Those who failed missed opportunities and were criticized for not measuring up to others. These and other ways students were tested and how their results “measured up” are the subject of the 1980-81 SPIRIT. Opening 9 — — eem À 4 р 4 - r " t. wees J LA Lk EA SELJE [IONS 7 L D г Е s .

It gave students more time to do what they wanted to to do. “I got to be at the pool a lot more, " noted Erin Griffiths. " It was really relaxing. " Along with the fun, however, many students accepted responsibility. Most students had summer jobs and others expanded their skills and knowledge at summer school classes or special workshops. Some working students found their earnings brought them more freedom. “This summer was the most independent one of my life. I made a good sum of money and used part of it taking my own vacation in Ten- nessee, said Jennifer Martin. Students with jobs often saved their money for college or vacations. An informal survey showed that most 12 Summer Ames High students traveled during the summer, most vacationing with their family or touring with a student group. Al Wiser, the advisor of a sum- mer study tour of Europe, stated, “The trip is an investment in the future. It's not a purchase; it will stay with them forever. " For some, money wasnt the only reward of a summer job. Working provided experience for future careers or a chance to help others. " Working with the kids at Willson- Beardshear was the highlight of my summer, " commented Kathy Adams. Above: TUBING. Sue Koellner and Tricia Woolley escape the summer heat with a refreshing swim.

This theory Was proved wrong as mos! students displayed enthusiasm for the week's events. Festivities " kicked of” with an- nouncement ol king and queen can- didates and progressed through the week with slave auctions, hush days, a dress-up day, and the crowning of Stacy Bartz and Joe Gibbons as homecoming royalty. At the Friday morning pep assembly athletic teams put on their traditional skits, two of which showed the athletes’ carnivorous tendencies. First, the boys’ cross-country team blended up cold beans, ice cream, katsup, prune juice, and live grasshoppers and drank it to the disgust of many. Then, Troy Nesbitt shocked large numbers of students when he stood amongst fellow foot- ball players and bit the head off a live carp. Nesbitt compared, “It was sort of like biting into 'Freshen up' gum. " Excitement peaked as the football team rolled over sixth ranked Cedar Falls 17-13. Captain Bill Beavers sighted " enthusiasm, preparation, and the desire to go out and win” as important aspects contributing to the victory. Student Council sponsored the dance, “Rock n' Roll High School, " following the game. Dance coor- dinator Lisa DesEnfants exclaimed,” " Ihe music was great, the decora- tions went over well, and I think mosi people found it a nice way to end homecoming.” Uppe r left: HOLD STILL.

Greed torce The Visit, the fall drama production, Was a tale ot treachery, revenge and lost love. The plot concerned the return of Claire Zachanassian (Mary Gruber) to her poverty-stricken hometown Gullen, Germany. To return the townspeople to prosperity, she promised them one-billion marks provided they kill her former lover, Anton Schill (Eric Zytowski). Claire believed he betrayed her when she became pregnant by him and was driven from town. At first the Burgomaster (Joel Manatt) refused the offer but gradually greed over- took him and the villagers. Noticing a new-found affluence in Gullen, An- ton began to accept his fate. He was later killed by the townsmen even after a plea from the teacher (Matt Buckingham) to refuse the money. The Visit was a play of emotions that d abandonment of morals was presented with minimum scenery to accent the characters. It used innovative lighting and sound effects to present scene and mood changes. also The serious plot didn't appeal to everyone. " It was kind of morbid. The actors were good but the play wasn't very cheering, " said Johanna Hanson. Dave Johnson felt otherwise. " I was proud to be part of The Visit because it was the difficult sort of play that's rarely produced at a high school. " Left: WARY.

Diets aren't healthy ... I like being overweight — there's more of me to love. For those who decided to fight fat, however, if meant increased exercise and decreased calories. Various ways to stay in shape were found by students. “I run, lift weights, and play racquetball,’ said Rob Compton. Kris Blackmer said, “I try to eat the four basic food groups and cut down on junk food.” Along with diets came temptations. “Oreo crunch ice cream from Boyd's keeps me from sticking to a diet!” ex- claimed Deb Frye. In December, upon the request of many, a salad bar became another lunch option. “The salad bar is nutri- tional for athletes and weight watc- hers, " explained Carol Loken, salad bar assistant. Sue Kruse, physical education teacher, concluded, “Students are in their prime. If they stay fit now it'll benefit them when they're older. " Left MUNCHIES. Erick Little gathers up some of his favorite high calorie snacks during an attack of the munchies.

Diet and exercise 19 —— — Diverse theology Religious faith at Ames High was a multiple choice question that many students chose to answer. Dave Gillette, a proclaimed atheist, theorized, “I don’t believe there's a supreme being. " He explained, “I went to confirmation classes for a while. I like religion, I just don't believe in it. " In contrast, many students had very strong religious convictions. One jun- ior boy reasoned, " Religion provides an important supporting role in times of need and trying situations. " Still, many students’ beliefs were somewhat middle of the road. Greg Bush admitted, “I sometimes feel pressured into going to church by my parents.” Melanie Black echoed this sentiment by saying, “When my mom decides to go, we go. " Be it Christianity, Judaism, atheism, agnosticism, or any other faith, reli- gion at Ames High was a varied choice and an individual decision. Above: CONFABULATION.

(XC? . l ————— [n the 1980 elections, Iowans followed a national trend calling for change in government. Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan defeated incumbent Democrat Jimmy Carter. Many other races followed suit; Republicans gained 12 Senate seats formerly held by Democrats and took control of the Senate. Many prominent liberal Democrats were defeated, including [owa Senator John Culver, who fell to Republican Charles Grassley. For the first time since 1968, there were more than two major presiden- tial candidates. Many students preferred Independent John Ander- son over the others. Jennie Amos ex- pressed a common view, saying, " I agreed with what Anderson said, but since I didn't think he had a fighting chance, I would have voted for Carter so Reagan wouldn't win; | didnt think he'd be good for the country. Both Constitutional proposals on the ballot were defeated. Sixtv per cent of Iowans said “no” to a Constitution revision convention. Those in favor of the “con-con” hoped to add an Voters wanted change amendment limiting taxes, but others felt, as did Mary Thompson, that “limiting taxes would mean cutting important programs.

Richard Schneider stated that his government classes were OVer- whelmingly in favor of it " and a poll of Richard White's American history students showed 75 per cent sup- ported the ERA. Due to the liberal attitude at Ames High, some students were surprised at the number of conservatives elected. “The Republicans defeated the Democrats by a larger margin than I expected.

You get the comedy, “The Mouse That Roared, " the winter play. The hero, Tully Bascom (John Swagert) was called by Gloriana the Twelfth (Betsy White], ruler of Grand Fenwick, to find a way to get the U.S. to stop making a certain wine, the na- tional product. He suggested a declaration of war but when this was sent it was ignored by laughing American government officials. Gloriana then decided to invade the U.S. with intentions of surrendering immediately and applying for foreign aid. Meanwhile, the eccentric Professor Kokintz (Joel Manatt) invented the Quadium bomb amid student anti- weapon demonstrations. Thinking the Fenwickian invasion force were protestors, the U.S. military party guarding the bomb were captured and, along with the weapon, taken back to Fenwick. Once there, alarm prevailed until Tully decided to form a peace alliance with the bomb as his influence. The play was prepared in five weeks but sickness and other activities caus- ed a few actors to be absent from rehearsals. “You can rehearse lines at home but you have to work on your movement with others,” said Bob Wunder. Being a substitute to the ever-popular musical (which was scrapped due to seemingly lack of interest) was a challenge. But audience reaction seemed generally favorable. Mary Martin commented, “I was extremely disappointed there wasn’t a musical but the actors were excellent in their portrayals.” Top left: TAKE AIM.

More students' parents worked for ISU than for any other employer. Nearly three-fourths of Ames High students attended a colle- giate sports competition during the year, ranging from football games to gymnastic meets. Students also attended cultural events, including plays, concerts, and exhibits. More than 80 percent used ISU facilities, such as Beyer Hall, the ISU library, and the State Gym. " There were lots of things to do; you never got bored, " commented Leanne Theile. Studies showed that 75 percent of Ames High graduates went on to 28 ISU Effects four-year colleges, a substantially higher percentage than the national average of 50 percent. Assistant Prin- cipal Bill Ripp attributed the higher percentage to the fact that Ames is a university town. “Many, many par- ents are college graduates, " he said, adding " Ames youngsters see the standard of living a college education brings. " Jon DeReus concurred, “It seems as if school is the number one importance in everyone's life in Ames. " Many students were aware of the positive effects of having ISU in Ames. “It has provided a lot of oppor- tunities and events that a town with- out a university wouldn't have, " stated Martha Westerlund.

ISU Effects 29 30 Fashion Collection of classics The new fashion trend was a collec- tion of looks returning from the past. Cardigans were “in” again. Turtlenecks reappeared, updated with colored motifs on a white background, along with penny loafers and pleated skirts reminiscent of earlier decades. “You can dress prep- py by digging up old clothes,” said Michelle Mengeling. The new look included classic styles long popular at Ivy League colleges. Dubbed “the preppy look” by its massive media promotion, it popularized conservative dress. “Preppy” invaded Ames High. Students wearing oxford cloth shirts with button-down collars, shoulder- tied sweaters, narrow legged pants, and loafers could be spotted in vir- tually every classroom. For a dressier look, girls donned kilts, blazers, monogrammed sweaters, textured tights or argyle socks, and low-heeled shoes. Neatness was a preppy trait. Preppy collars and shirttails stayed tucked in and all clothes were tailored to fit. " ‘Preppy’ makes me think of neat, clean-cut dressers,’ commented Cara Bredeson. Though “preppy” dominated, other new looks emerged. The western look with cowboy boots and yoked shirts was popular. Surgical suits sprang up in varying colors. Preppy clothes were expensive, but many felt they were a good value. “Preppy clothes are sold at high prices because they're designed as fashion basics and should last forever, " remarked Mengeling.

" It was the story of Dee Dee (Susie Yager) and Alberta (Carol Bachmann} who met in an all-night laundry, each to escape solitude at home. As they confided in each other, both realized they could handle their problems. Another tale of two women, “My Cup Ranneth Over,” was directed by Jackie Courteau. The bittersweet comedy was about Yucca Conklin (Lisa Miller), a singer who was discovered overnight. Paula Tissot (Cindy Verser), a struggling writer, was happy for her roommate at first, but became increasingly jealous as her fame grew. The chums reconcil- ed after the singer insisted Paula write her cover story for Cosmopolitan magazine. A different production dealt with the life of a soldier, Anton (Tim Hickman). In the play " The But- terflies Die " , written and directed by Dave Gillette, butterflies symbolized life and death. Lisa Grossman directed " To The Chicago Abyss. " The story took place in a world of people just surviving day to day. The Old Man's (John Swagert) mission was to remind peo- ple of little things, working up to big things in rebuilding their society. " Camera Obscura” was presented by Joel Manatt. It was about a male and female (Jim Kleinschmidt and Karin Paulsen) trying to express a futile longing over a communicator that spanned an indefinite distance. A presentation using actors as objects and several characters was " Inter- view”, directed by Jennifer Ross. The title sequence was an interview bet- ween a variety of applicants and cold, unfeeling interviewers. The play branched off into individual stories of the characters and ended with the repeating line, “My fault, ex- cuse me, can you help me, next.

Chip Wass disagreed, exclaiming, " Dancing is the best reason to go to dances, I especially like dancing to New Wave music. It's mod!” For many, slow dancing was more comfortable.

Traveling abroad had the added dif- ficulties of a language barrier.

Г == = iu JIP КЛАР eS ee A Wednesday matinee, a cast of four and locked-door rehearsals all characterized the spring play, " Who's On First " by Jack Sharkey, The play was a comedy involving the replaying of the same scene many times with different characterizations or plot twists. Audiences seemed appreciative ol the madcap humor. " It was very hysterical, never a Weak moment in the whole play,” Steve Haviland en- thused. “The actors were very ver- satile, " he continued, commenting on the variety of characters in the pro- duction that included hillbillies, lapanese people, gangsters, English aristocrats and even a Hatian voodoo priestess. Because the Saturday performance fell on the same date as the prom, a Wednesday matinee had to be substituted. Attendance was low at the first afternoon performance the drama department produced. Another odd feature of the play was that no one, except cast and essential crew, was allowed to view the play before opening night and few plot details were given out. " That was because the main part of the play was based on surprise. If people talked about it before, the audience wouldn't be nearly as shocked or the play as exciting, " commented student director Mindy Hardy. The production itself concerned a party at Camilles (Jane Wilson) apartment where a jealous husband Don (Dave Johnson] waits with a gun in a closet for his wife, Alice (Lisa Des Enfants] whom he thinks is hav- ing an affair with her magic teacher Ben (Bob Wunder). However, in a careless series of gestures Don shoots the other three. As she leans on an antique lamp, Camille wishes everything could have been different. The play then went in many directions. Commenting on the outcome, direc- tor Wayne Hansen said, " It was pro- bably some of the best comic acting ever seen on the Ames High stage. " Spring Play 47 48 C Above: THE BOSS.

The concerts in Ames included Queen, Linda Ronstadt, The Statler Brothers, The Commodores, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, The Beach Boys, and Pure Prairie League. Because of the popularity of the groups, purchasing tickets was an im- portant issue among students. “I camped out because I wanted the closest seats I could get and I knew Id have a good time, " said Sean Ryan. Some students who camped out miss- ed school and dared cold weather as well as their parents. Besides wantin good seats, Doug Cowles stated, wanted to make a profit.'

Cuts in state funding coupled with rising costs forced the Ames School Board to cut nearly a million dollars from the district budget. A $144,000 chunk of those reductions came from the high school budget. The equiva- lent of 5.7 full-time teachers con- tracts were terminated. The career education program, EBCE, was elimi- nated and funds for textbooks and instructional materials were de- creased.

Five months before, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, former shah of Iran, died of cancer in Egypt. His original refuge in the United States caused militants to seize the American embassy, On the day of the hostages’ release, republican Ronald Reagan was ina- gurated as president of the United States. Within three months Reagan was shot in the chest as he was leav- ing a meeting at the Washington D.C. Hilton. He surprised the nation with his quick recovery and returned to work two weeks later. Music fans around the world mourned the death of famed musi- cian composer John Lennon who was shot outside his New York City home. The death of the former Beatle and the assasination attempt on Reagan provoked gun control lobbyists to speak for handgun legislation. A string of hotel fires, including one at the Las Vegas MGM Grand where 84 people died, prompted an aware- ness of fire safety codes. The space shuttle Columbia, three years behind schedule and over budget, was launched. For the first time since 1975 Americans were in space and for the first time ever a ground landing was successfully com- pleted so that parts of the shuttle could be reused. ` " É Е . i Unam w. f...

Rachel Heggen and Paul Zingg were chosen as class speakers. Heggen gave thanks to those who had given that " extra push " for excellence dur- ing high school. " We usually say thank you’ in non-verbal ways, but tonight I want to speak my thanks, " she explained. Zingg received many laughs as he listed band rats, brains, dirtheads, Thespians, and other fac- tions at Ames High, but then made a serious plea for tolerance of others and class unity. Past tradition included giving flowers to the graduating girls, but nothing to the boys. Many people felt this was unfair. Laura Barta explained, “The money for the flowers comes from senior fees, so they shouldn't go to just half the class. " Barta pushed a measure through Senior Senate and the boys were given white carnations, while the girls were presented with red roses. Many seniors were surprised to find that the object they received from Ames school board president Anton Netusil as they crossed the stage was nothing more than an emp- tv case. But as thev descended the stairs from the stage, they were relieved to receive their diploma from Grace Bauske, senior class co- sponsor. ` the seniors were more interested in grabbing their flower than diploma,” she laughed.

Karen Ross participates in an ISU stadium cleanup to earn money for the activity fund. | Inflation forced most Ames High organizations into raising most of the money needed to support their ac- tivities. Selling towels, candy and cheese and having bake sales and dances were some of the ways they raised that money. " Mostly we had dances. That was really the only way to make money. If we got desperate we had bake sales, " Lisa DesEnfants said about Student Council fundraisers. They used their money to have more dances. They also donated a portion to charities. DECA conducted a door-to-door cheese sale and also sold buttons and popcorn. With the money raised they sent most of their members to state competition in Des Moines and some of them to national competition in California. They had parties and ban- quets also. The band sold candy bars to help pay for new equipment, music, and their tri-annual trip. Each member sold at least thirty bars. Sabrina Madsen said, " There's a friendly competition to see who can sell the most. " In addition to the financial gain, the fundraisers had other advantages. Jim Kleinschmidt said, " If the students could accomplish the fundraising then they felt the event was more worthwhile since they did it themselves. " Upper left: LASANGE.

IU LL LILLE LARA GEE üU Thespians aspire to financial fund raising Thespians are an organization designed to honor students that have participated in extracurricular drama activities. To be considered for membership a student must con- tribute 100 hours to play productions, either through acting and or crew work. The Ames High troupe met monthly to discuss various plans. Their major goal was to raise money to replace the sound system that had been stolen during summer vacation. Reflecting on this theft, sponsor Wayne Hansen remarked, " It was an example of ultimate decadence and self-indulgence. " Thespians held several bake sales in the lobby to raise funds. Karin Paulsen lamented, " They were a good money raising idea but we didn't get organized very well and never did enough of them. " Renting movies and showing them for one dollar was also a way of mak- ing money. Maria Osborn said, “It was amazing. We got more people to come than some plays we've had. " 60 Thespians Some Thespians felt that the organization didn't serve an effective purpose. Dave Johnson regretted, " We don't do as much as we should. Limitations smother thespians.

Thespians 61 One of the most important but least known parts of the vocational educa- tion department was the clubs. Each section had a corresponding club. For example, Home Economics Related Occupations (HERO) corresponded with the home economic vocations. The clubs played a major role in uni- fying the members. Paul VanDen- Bosh agreed, " DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America] is just as important as di stributive education. " The clubs met approximately once a month to discuss what was going on in the organization. Each club was broken down into three levels — local, state, and na- tional. On the local level the members worked on community pro- jects. " We repaired and put up United Way signs for our community project, " said Mike Tett, Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) president. 62 Vocational Education Clubs ns‏ ص —- — ص On the lighter side of the local level were parties where the club members got to know each other better. Some of their social events were pizza par- ties, picnics and barbeques. Each club worked on leadership skills needed for their fields. Leader- ship was stressed in competition in state and national conferences. The majority of students agreed that the clubs were an important part of their work study programs. “I think its great! It's a lot of fun to meet new people and go on the trips, " conclud- ed Julie Whitefield, HERO member. Upper right WHAT'S COOKING?

Clarke added, “The success we have had drew new students.” The 45 member Speech Club improved the outstanding record of previous years. The contests the club participated in were divided into large group and in- dividual categories. Out of the 42 acts that participated in the district con- test, 39 received the highest possible rating. These acts proceeded to the state con- test. Michelle Robinson said, “The contest was fun, it helped to build my self confidence by talking in front of other people. " Three large group acts were rated superior by at least two judges, ad- vancing them to superstate. Groups and individuals practiced once or twice a week for half an hour. Large groups had five events they could perform, such as reader's theatre and mime. Individuals had 14 events to choose from, ranging from poetry readings to demonstration speeches. Tim Hickman commented, " I met a lot of people through Speech Club that I otherwise wouldn't have met.

The 12-member board was selected to rate prose and poetry written by Ames High students on a 1-to-5 rating system and compile the best into one volume. Alan Miller and Laurie Pletcher cashed in on computer technology to process the ratings data more effi- ciently. “One of us would read off the ratings, and the other would punch them in. The computer would print out the averages,” explained Alan Miller. They used one of the high school’s Apple II mini-computers and a varia- tion of a program created by Steve KCN Furman, 1980 graduate. According to sponsor Mona Smith, there were less entries than in previous years but their overall quali- ty improved. She added that she had the oppor- tunity to read several literary publications from other schools and found " ours was classier! " These factors enabled the board to scrutinize entries " more closely. " “I liked to have some say as to what stayed out of a publication represen- tative of my school " commented Craig Textor.

When marching band season con- cluded, band members auditioned for placements in one of two concert bands, and various other ensembles. All groups performed a variety of concerts during the remainder of the year. The musical ensembles were as div- erse as the musical tastes of their members. Two jazz bands offered students playing experience in a vari- ety of jazz styles. " We play a lot of different types of music — about everything but new wave,” explained one band member. The Dixieland 68 Concert Bands band, with its New Orleans-jazz style, performed at nursing homes and for special occasions around Ames. Special opportunities existed throughout the year for interested stu- dents. Musicians who wished to audi- tion for the All-State Festival or uni- versity-sponsored honor bands had the chance to do so. In the spring many students participated in solo- ensemble contest. Most band mem- bers felt that unity made their band program successful. " Despite the hard work and practice, I wouldn't give it up for anything, " vowed Anne Grant. Top right: HARMONY.

The Marshalltown Bobcats came to Ames, not to trick-or-treat, but to face rival Ames High on the football field. At halftime, the band met the chal- lenge, and performed a special Hal- loween show for the audience. “It was an interesting change of pace, " commented Betsy Clubine, junior drum major. Drums beating, the 200-member marching band donned masks and played Darth Vader's theme song, with the drum majors disguised as characters from Star Wars. For the finale, the band marched into the home stands, and threw candy to the audience while playing the school song. " People didn't understand what was going on, " reminisced Mindy Hardy. " We had trouble getting through the aisles, but the crowd enjoyed it. " " We needed more work with the masks because the alignment was 70 Athletic Bands =.

He continued, “I don’t think a show like that would work again.

Marching 32 members, the flag corps was the largest in the marching band's history. Because oí the in- creased participation, sixteen lightweight flags were purchased, and new uniforms were sewn by the corps. Russell Meyer, assistant direc- tor, helped the corps learn the routines, designed by Laurie Kernan and Beth Dobson, co-captains, and Homer Gartz, director. The six twirlers performed with the marching band for every game. The highlight of the season was the senior tradition of flaming fire-batons.

A respectable number of All-State finalists were involved in orchestra. Four strings and six winds made the prestigious group of musicians who, along with members from all over Iowa, played an annual concert. However, Mr. Richard McCoy indicated that the number reflected the increases orchestra made in participants, playing level, and desire to perform. “We made gains in getting people back to our original numbers from past years. With more upperclassmen, playing proficiency increased so we wished we could have had more concert dates. " But their efforts toward improve- ment were hampered somewhat because some people, who wanted to stay in orchestra, found schedul- ing difficult. " It was a pain, " com- plained Renee Richardson about getting to go to only one rehearsal a week. She cited the lack of senior classes offered seventh and eighth periods the main conflict. " I prac- ticed during open periods and free time, " Richardson added, reflect- ing the commitment of some of those who couldn't attend regular practices. Librarian Mike Bunting, who wasn't able to go to any meet- ings, summed up, “I still found ways of getting involved. " Above left: PLAY ON.

Every three years, the Concert choir packs up two buses Íor a seven-day tour. For the first time the Sophomore Mixed choir accompanied the Con- cert choir which involved one hun- dred singers. “Because choir goes on tour every three years, this year's sophomores wouldn't ever get to go, " explained Al Wiser, director of choirs. During the first three days of the trip, the choir visited other schools to ex- change concerts. The Ames singers stayed overnight with members of the host school's chorus. The choir gave as many concerts as they could schedule, and accepted performance dates almost anywhere. " We sing in hospitals, mental institu- tions, prisons — anywhere we'll have a good audience, " said Wiser. For the remainder of the tour, the choir visited St. Louis, Missouri. After touring the city, the choir went to Six Flags over Mid-America, an amuse- ment park located in St. Louis. " [ really looked forward to going, " said Molly Homer, sophomore choir member. “If I couldn't have gone this year, I wouldn't have ever gotten to go on a choir tour. Above right: NOEL.

Choir students had many oppor- tunities to participate in smaller choruses, each focusing on particular aspects of singing. The twelve-member swing choir sang and choreographed popular songs and jazz, entertaining at churches, nursing homes and civic events. “We did the choreography ourselves, us- ing movements to emphasize certain phrases,” explained Tim Hickman of the student-organized chorus. “We worked hard, but it was a good feel- ing to do it ourselves,’ commented Tami Rood. Singing classical songs dating from the renaissance period, the Madrigal Choir performed at the lowa State Madrigal dinner. “I really had fun at the dinner, and the music was in- teresting to sing, " said Mary Martin. The treble pops choir was an all- female chorus which performed charitable concerts in Ames. They emphasized singing for fun, so no for- mal concerts were given. “I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, and the lighter music, " commented Shawn McCoy. " Its helped round out my vocal background.

The goal of the group was to give students a chance to be honest with their pro- SS CR a 2d blems and find solutions to them. e : The original members decided te allow more members to join the group because they felt that it offered benefits for everyone. They did this by increasing the number of meetings § each week from one to five periods f and by talking to students during апа after school to let them know of the larger program. The groups met once a week and in- volved one or two faculty members, student facilitators from the original group, and eight to ten students. They talked openly about their problems and participated in activities to sharpen their listening and problem solving skills. Seth Wolins, student facilitator, ууа delighted that they had grown. Не said, “There isn't a single person af Ames High that this program shouldn't benefit.

Although their record was 4-5 they ended a nine game losing streak started by last year’s squad. In mid-September the varsity squad ranked seventh in the state. Coach Keith Bailey said, “I was very pleased, I think anytime you are ranked it’s an indication that you have a quality football team.” He also said, “I was pleased with the season and with their progress. " According to Bailey the strong points of the team were the following: in- telligence, quickness, and depth. Two players who combined these were Dan Carney and Brian Mulhall who received enough votes from the other coaches in the conference to be named to the All-Conference team. Another player who performed well was Mark Konek, who led the Big Eight in rushing throughout the season.

He felt the skill level of the 24 girls involved improved tremendously. They became a solid unit, with the players working as a team instead of as in- dividuals, by the season’s end. The team finished with an 8-7 record and won sectionals before losing to West Marshall in district play. This marked the third sectional champion- ship Ames has won in the girls’ soft- ball program. Several major line-up changes were made during the season. After losing the seniors from the summer season, players were shifted to fill the empty positions. The players quickly adapted to their new positions and the team’s consistency seemed to im- prove. Tonia McCarley observed, " The changes worked out really well, everyone seemed to be more en- thusiastic in their new positions.” Coach Legg felt that having the fall program was an asset to the players. He noted, “Twenty-four girls who normally do not have a fall activity were involved and it’s obvious their skill level was much higher as a result. " One goal of the fall softball season, according to Legg, was to help im- prove the summer season. It was im- proved as the girls became used to working together and had good team unity and spirit.

At the start of the season's practices, several team members had never played a full round of golf before. Golfer Ann Hanson attributed the team's record to this “inexperience,” but added, “Some girls cut 20 strokes off their game " by the end of the season. The girls felt that the ex- perience they gained would help in the next season. Only six girls tried out for the team and all of them were underclassmen. Despite the improvements made in the season Susie Keenan commented, 118 Girls' Golf " We needed more people on our team. " The team did not let their lack of suc- cess frustrate them, however. “This was a very competitive group and they just worked all the harder, " observed Coach Bob Heiberger. Hanson reflected on the season suc- cinctly when she said, " We sure came a long way considering that we started with nothing.” Right: CONCENTRATION. Ann Hanson putts the ball toward the green.

The top seven players of the championship team graduated, leaving a young, inex- perienced team, including only three seniors. The team performed admirably with a 3-6 dual meet record against such teams as Roosevelt, the defending state champion. The squad was reduced from the usual 22 players to 13, cutting many jv positions. This cut costs and conform- ed to a new IHSAA rule stating that boys’ tennis teams have only 12 com- petitions. Coach Bob Gibbons had to schedule varsity competition, not jv meets. с „ б. sie 69 Inexperienced team challenged by season; 3 а b A è Y ы ` مم‎ Ween p - ’ hE ` T l „ a ٣ phe n su t o m + Tc " " ЖЕ ж D. , ғ Am aS A Tau ye MIL um m. i Е ( ` " E " n Р Ce = Е TN P J Е $ P Е Ld ` ‘= І Joc , H The team was led by Vincente Bot tinelli, a French exchange student, who played in the number one ѕроЁ 3 He captured the Big Eight and Һе district single's titles and advanced iG the quarterfinals of the state meet. ll а ао а - " It's been a good season, but a di | ficult weather season, " concluded | Gibbons. “We had terrible meet weather.

WO e aE me BE Preseason workout May 18 was officially the first day of baseball practice, but long beforehand the players worked to im- prove the diamond at Brookside Park. " With the support of a lot of people and businesses in Ames, the boys have put in a lot of hours working on the diamond, " said Coach Dave Posegate. They resodded the infield, built a warning track around the dia- mond and reconstructed the almost- circular field back into the shape it started out to be — a diamond. " We put new hatracks and batracks in the dug-out, " Tyler Thoen men- tioned. " We put a drinking fountain in there, too. " " The drinking fountain in the dug- out, " explained Posegate, " is to keep the boys' concentration on the play- ing field, instead of оп their e ` жа.

Other duties included handling balls and stopwatches, keeping track of equipment, and helping team members. Coach Sue Kruse said, “Having my manager around was like having another coach.” Generally, the managers’ job was to keep everything running smoothly and efficiently. Mindy Har- dy noted, “They did many things we i Needed for success weren't aware of. " Girls’ basketball manager Amy Brugger commented, " If we weren't there the coaches and players would have a lot more to do. " lrainer Ron " Bear " Green was also important to the athletes. Coach Legg observed, " We were very fortunate to have Bear. He was invaluable to the teams in the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries. " Athletes recognized the importance of the managers and trainers too. " We definitely needed the managers and trainers, " realized Julie Fenton. “It took more than the coaches and athletes to make a team. " Left: SPOTTING.

But as one participant said, " There were no losers, Ames High won no matter what.

Subjects ranged from the girls' swim meet to the speech club, from cheerleading to computers, and editorials on Election '80. The fruits of their labor were aired several times a week on Ames High's own cable channel.

They were also delivery people, waiters waitresses, retail salespeople, dishwashers, janitors, and secretaries. In a time of harsh economic realities, seniors needed the extra money for entertainment or the future. Of those who did work, 65% felt their jobs had not affected their grades. " Even if I wasn't working, | sometimes negleced my homework, " one senior's questionaire read. " If I had something to do, I just didn't go to work!” Elaine Dennis was one who thought working affected her grades negatively. “When I worked at two places and also cheered I had no time for school work,” she noted. Another senior commented, “At times I stayed up so late I zonked out in class the next day!” oome seniors believed their grades improved as a direct result of being employed. “My grades were better because I did my homework at work, " wrote one. While a senior in vocational education stated, “I was graded for my job, so naturally my grades improved.” Despite the disad- vantages involved with holding a job while attending school, the workers were happy to their paychecks. receive Money (mune) n. pl. moneys or monies. 1.

" Following college, seniors had varied occupational interests ranging from becoming a dance teacher to becom- ing a genetic counselor. Other pur- suits included the following: law, business, accounting, nursing, jour- nalism, computer science and chemistry. Most seniors who were surveyed selected an occupational field that fit into their interests, however, then they looked for the best-paying job in that field.

After the Christmas Formal, a party led to the subsequent arrests of a few Ames High seniors.

Alcohol was not the only drug ex- perienced. “I smoke pot because I en- joy the feeling it gives me. I don't care if it's not legal. It makes mv classes a lot more interesting! " This senior was only one of the estimated millions of marijuana- puffing students in the United States. The national figures showed that one out of ten high school seniors regular- ly smoked the herb. What about the displav of affection some students expressed in the halls of Ames High? " There's a time and a place for that, and it's not at school. You'd think they could wait, " com- mented Kristen Ripp. The majority of seniors questioned thought that Ames High was fairlv wild, but not in comparison with other schools.

Homework is definitely coming last. " Some seniors found the last months of their secondary education to be anti-climatic and boring. “The teachers lack enthusiasm.

" But most seniors agreed that although sometimes rautine, school was stimulating and generally acceptable.

" Sure I'm happy they were freed, " said Rob Jacobson. He continued, " This nation was through a tough psychological ordeal. " Seniors had a variety of feelings about patriotism ranging from sincere thoughts to apathy. Mary Thompson defined patriotism as “a loyalty to your country and a desire to improve it.’ Lisa Meeden had a different view. She said, " Patriotism is a type of ethnocentrism — you're program- med to think your nation is the best. " Naturally there were those lacking in patriotism. One senior, when asked about patriotism, only said, “I really hate standing up for the national anthem. " Patriotic or not, 18 vear old males had no choice but to register for the draft. Bruce Pedigo summed up the majori- ty of the senior males' opinions when he said, " Registering is no big deal, but the thought of the draft scares me. " Mary Clare Gergen opposed the draft. She argued, " We should make having a war as difficult as possible; reigstration only encourages the use of force.” It was a year of draft registration, yellow ribbons, and finally, the end of a " tough pschological ordeal.” Left: PSYCH UP.

" We didn't have to return, so we didn't have to deal with the consequences. " The question, " What would you do for a senior prank?” drew several in- teresting responses. " If I could've done anything, I would have filled the breezeway with water, sand, plants, a couple of pirahnas, and an electric fantasized Dave Gillette. eel,” “I would pour plaster-of-Paris in all of the toilets and let it harden over- night, " one senior plotted maniacally.

Even those who turned down the opportunity to take the class had secret fears that they could still be sentenced to a year of physical equations in the near future. To nearly all juniors, physics was a dreaded class. Why? Many claimed they were total- ly baffled by the formulas and energy problems they were expected to memorize. " Its the hardest class | took, " said Susan Frahm. Why did they take it then? Studies showed that only 20 per cent of students nationwide took high school physics, but at Ames High, over 60 per cent chose to take the class. Many parents pressured students to take | physics. One junior said she would have felt guilty if she hadn't taken the | class. But other students opted to take | the class themselves, aware it would be difficult. Doug Kauffman agreed it was tough, but he felt it was a good college preparation course. " It's fine as long as you don't panic, " he advised. Far upper left: HE DID THAT?

Piercing one or both ears became a new trend adopted by many Ames High guys. Students had strong feelings about the new fad. Tom Kapfer thought it was ridicuous. “It was like trying to prove they could be different, " he said. Merv Bettis, however, showed strong support for his earring. " It's fine, " he stated. " Its a symbol that stands for something different for each person. Some wear it to show their manhood, some their lack of it. " He wore it to show his individuality. Most girls showed a lack of en- thusiasm for their stolen tradition. Cara Bredeson said it was " okay if they really wanted to, " but personally she felt it was " gross. " Paula Brackelsburg agreed with Bredeson, although she did admit it looked " neat " on some. She felt the ear piercing was " only a fad " that would " come and go like all the others!

Norm Rutz, like many other juniors, had looked forward to open lunch. “It was a great opportunity to get away from school, " he said, but then add- ed, " I don't think juniors should get open campus, though.

" As juniors, we often felt caught in the middle, " explained Pam Carlsborg, “but if we had taken open campus from the seniors, we wouldn't have had the privileges to look forward to.” | Far upper left: BLITZKRIEG.

Students in the program based their learning on job experiences they had in the community. Mary VanMarel, EBCE advisor, described the class as a great learning experience. “The students have to get out into the adult world, be treated like adults, and learn to show they are dependable like adults,” she said. The semester-long program allowed juniors to explore careers they were interested in three periods, four days a week. One day was spent with Van- Marel for individual guidance. The students involved were pleased with the program and had no com- plaints regarding the time spent away from school. Joe Dutmer said, “I got a lot of experience and it gave me good idea of what I could go into.” Another student involved with EBCE | à was Dave Wershay. “So far, I've | EN worked at a jewelry store, in an ISU eege Promotion office, and a bank, " he en said. ‘Tve gotten a lot of experience.

Com- mented Jeff Selman of honors history, " I enjoyed the things we did because they were different than the basic read your book, outline it, and take a test routine. " Sophomores in honors history worked on special class pro- jects and role plays. Janet Fanslow felt the biggest advan- tage of honors biology was that she learned more information than in any other science class. To learn more, however, an effort had to be made as Meagan McCoy said, " you learned more, but you had to do a lot more work. " One student felt that although the honor classes were a hard challenge, students involved weren't guaranteed an " A.

This mock- ery of the sophomore cheerleaders had become a tradition at Ames High. Kim Linduska, sophomore cheers- quad sponsor, said, " The tradition began before I came to Ames High. " Linduska felt the incidents were childish. “They (the throwers) may have thought their actions were funny, but they hurt the girls’ feel- ings.’ Anne Lowary, sophomore cheerleader, thought the chastisement was rude, “I didn’t think their actions were directed at us individually, but they hurt our feelings as a whole,” she said. A senior male, spoke for those who threw the chow, “We weren’t trying to be mean. On the contrary, we were just trying to lure the little girls into the stands.

The sys- tem gave seniors open campus, jun- iors open lunch, and sophomores structured learning center (SLC), one class period each day. SLC meant time to study or read with talking kept to a minimum. Many sophomores felt they could have managed their own free time. lim McDaniel commented, “I wish we could have had free periods to do whatever we wanted although I'm not sure I would have studied. " The administration felt SLC helped the sophomores learn to manage time. Carolyn Bollinger, SLC supervisor, agreed, " If the students would have used their time wisely, they wouldn't have had so much to do outside of school. " | Not only did the sophomores dislike | the SLC system, but many wanted | other privileges which were reserved for upperclassmen. Brad Ulrichson | said, " I really can't complain.

EEE EEE s. u FU EE “Its an embarrassing problem,” said David Pugh. “I have experienced rejection because the girl I wanted to go out with was dating a junior,” said Chris Block. Both had shared the feelings of rejec- tion brought on by sophomore girls who dated upperclassmen. Sophomore m ale rejection affected some of the 10th graders at Ames High. According to many, shyness was one of the major reasons why sophomores didn’t have dates. A number of girls said they would have gone out with sophomore boys had they been asked. Since they couldn’t drive, many soph- omores didn’t date because they had no means of transportation. The options of double dating with friends who had their drivers’ licenses or being chauffeured by parents seemed impractical and undesirable to many. Not everyone agreed that sophomore male rejection existed. “I don’t see why they should be afraid to ask a girl out until they have tried,” reasoned Molly Homer. Top: WORKING TOGETHER.

The thought of having to measure up by remembering all of the informa- tion learned in one semester was enough to send students cramming [or weeks. After taking their first final, some sophomores Íelt the tests were harder than they had originally anticipated. A lot of students said that they hadn't studied enough for their tests. “It was the first time I had taken tests like these,” said Tom Colwell. For Gary Ellis, however, semester tests were like he had expected. “I did a lot of cramming,” he remarked. “We had a lot of time to take them. But it was a relief when they were over.” One sophomore felt the tests reflected how much he had studied. “For some classes, that was great,” he said. “But in a couple others I didn't study as well.” Whether they studied ahead of time or crammed, most sophomores were glad that finals only counted one-fifth of their class grades.

Student jobs and family savings managed to account for some of the money, but rarely all. One way students could make up the remaining amount was through scholarships and loans. A student's eligibility for financial aid depended on three things — record in their chosen major, academic credit, and need. For a student in need, one of two forms had to be fill- ed out — the Financial Aid Form (FAF) or the Family Financial State- ment (FFS). Several select grants as well as the Basic Educational Oppor- tunity Grants (BEOG) used these forms as prerequisite for application. Many colleges sponsored scholar- ships for students who were entering a specific major. These grants ranged from $100 to $4000, and were renewable for following years. Other scholarships were sponsored by foun- dations, corporations, unions, clubs, and other organizations. These usual- ` ` E p JJ “ (x t e ots , re d y " pnd «eg 7 ° a y " " e.

Several scholarships were provided for students who showed exceptional talent in a certain academic or artistic area, such as science or music. Financial aid could help college- bound students pay their way. " I can probably pay between sixty and seventy percent of my money through a scholarship, one student said. Those students without financial aid depended mainly on their parents and their own money. Above: CONFERENCE. Don Cook and U.S. Government instructor James Duea discuss a report.

" Student attitudes differed toward the new system. “I thought it was just a big waste, " Renee Richardson com- plained. “The computer couldn't understand if you just had a single period conflict.

Advanced drawing was one of the classes that changed as students found less structured work than in previous years. They were not told how or what to draw, but were given their own choice of what to do. Through this, they discovered " What they were about, what they could do well,” so they could include those things in later artwork. " This kind of instruction has taught me what I can draw well and where I should keep my interests, " said Min- dy Hardy. Some students didn't like the unstruc- tured class periods. " The reason for taking this class is to get instruction, and working so much on my own is not getting the needed instruction, " explained Andy Montag. The new teaching styles enabled students to discover new ideas. “It has taught me to try different things | that I didn't think I could do,” | reflected Maria Cloud. Above left: FACES.

Nimble fingers coordinated to the mind and to eve movements was a necessity for the students enrolled in typing classes. " Some students found dif- ficulty in using their fingers in- dividuallv, " noted Willett. Another common problem was trying to keep students from watching the keys while they typed.

" was a question heard frequently the past few years in many schools. This idea of " back to basics " was heavily focused upon by television specials, the popular press, and even the Ames High English department. Attention to the importance of writing caused a new writing requirement, which in turn caused a flood of students to take writing classes. A survey put out by the English department in early fall revealed a new problem. Students were taking many writing classes and very few lit- erature classes. " We've focused so much on writing, now we need to communicate the importance of liter- ature, " explained English teacher Grace Bauske. 3 - “ а» С”.

" Ames High students were getting a lot of writing experience,” said Keith Carlson, head of the English depart- ment. “Part of the basics is reading though.

Yet there was an almost for- gotten alternative — being a foreign exchange student. One foreign exchange program used by Ames High was the Youth for Understanding Program (YFU). Exchange students could take part in a summer or year-long program in which they lived with a host family during their stay. Traveling to a foreign country affected both the exchange students and their host families. Vincente Bot- tinelli, a French exchange student, commented on an obvious problem, language differences. “It's very hard. I knew what I wanted to say but I didn't know how to say it. " Bottinelli's problems increased because his American family didn’t speak French. " We always kept a dictionary handy,” said Doug Cowles, Bottinelli's Ameri- can brother. The different classes and activities offered at Ames High were a surprise to the exchange students. Swedish exchange student Dag Schantz was enthusiastic about these new choices. “I had a lot of opportunities I other- wise wouldn't have had, " he remarked. Upper left: CONFERENCE.

Lo Ш% ptm mia tag ET a C | U U Е Oe ———————————————— Ee Opinions varied widely on class rank system To students who applied to a college or university, an important concern was class rank. To many colleges, class rank was one of the best in- dicators of the success an applicant would have in his or her chosen field. To determine class rank, students were listed by their grade point averages, which were compiled from semester grades in full -credit courses, beginning the freshman year. Since only the grade point was used in com- puting class rank, several students had the same rank if their averages were the same. One of the major criticisms against class rank was that it was possible for a student who got high grades in sim- ple courses to have had a higher class 210 Guidance rank than someone who took more difficult classes and got lower grades. “Its not fair at all, " Allison Elder complained. “People should not be penalized for taking harder classes when they could have taken easier ones and gotten higher grades. " Mary Martin had a different attitude. “The people that took harder courses would be better prepared for college. If someone took simple classes, it would catch up with them later.

But none of these prepared students for facing the challenges of life after graduation, when they would be on their own as adults. One class did it in ‘one semester — Adult Living. “It’s an excellent class, " commented Kristen Ripp. " It's about stuff that's really useful to know. ' Most students that took Adult Living agreed with Ripp, adding that a lot of the curriculum covered concerned topics they’d never taken the time to think about before. The course highlighted such things as maturity traits, goals, attitudes, and lifestyles, for starters. Then they covered financial planning, con- sumerism, and rights and respon- sibilities of teens. Also discussed were death, wills, and dissolutions of marriages. After teaching the class for twelve years, Donna Schepers was still ex- cited about it. “It's so much fun to teach,” she expressed enthusiastical- ly. “You really get to know the students and how they feel.” She ad- ded that she wished more boys would take the course. She taught it co-ed oriented but not very many boys seemed comfortable signing up for it. Some Adult Living students felt the class should be a graduation require- ment because of the information it covered. “The class really prepares you for adult life, " Kathy Adams felt. “I highly recommend it for everyone.

It started with eighth grade drafting; “Then things were simple, not very complicated,” com- mented one student. For the student with a broad interest in drafting there was Technical Draf- ting, a basic background course. It covered a wide range of topics such as original design and constructional problems. Pre-engineering Drafting was another background course for students interested in civil or mechanical engineering. This course consisted of light construction techniques, blueprint reading, machine drafting and reproduction. Rich Axtell commented, “Architec- tural Drafting is a course that teaches you how to build houses and buildings.

To some, Cablevision meant good movies without the high costs of tickets, gasoline, and popcorn. Others liked the larger selection of prime- time entertainment from the added stations. To media teacher Steve Lin- duska, it meant the Ames High Video Magazine, televised several times a week on the school and government station. The Magazine's staff involved ap- proximately twelve volunteers who did most of their work during fifth period. Although the production of the program was not scheduled into a class, each student spent between eight and ten hours on one half-hour segment. The Magazine presented features which were created and pro- duced by the staff members. Several features spotlighted school-related news or Ames High activities such as the swim and hockey teams.

Sophomores were the first students affected by the new requirement. As ninth graders, they received review material containing example ques- tions, then they took the new minimum competency test. Many students had no trouble with the test, and continued on in the regular Ames High math program. “The questions were too easy, but I guess they had to be because it was a competency test, " said Jill Rasmussen. Sophomores who did not pass the test were required to take a non-credit quarter course called Essential Mathematics. Classes in this program were small and students received in- dividualized attention. At the end of nine weeks, students retook the com- petency test and accordingly passed out of or repeated Essential Mathematics. “The new requirement was one way of making sure students knew basic math facts before they graduated, " explained mathematics teacher Leone Michel.

Those musicians receiving the best possible rating of 1 were awarded medals. Although the contest was popular, the number of Ames participants was lower than in past years. A major conflict was the overseas foreign language trips which were in pro- gress during the contest date.

Although considered an alternative class, gym teachers felt that both it and Health were impor- tant, and one couldn't replace the other. While Health class was oriented towards social health pro- blems such as drugs and alcohol, Ex- ercise Physiology was concerned with the effects of exercise stress on the human body. [Instructor Julie Goodrich wanted to teach high school students the necessity of keeping active. " I wanted students to see what happens when we exercise, what happens when we re out of shape,” she said. Students commented that the class 222 Physical Education e Суу УУ inspired them to exercise more strenuously, as well as work on exer- cises to improve different types of muscle cells. “I learned that I should have a more complete workout, in- cluding stretching out and preparatory exercises,’ commented John Stuve. “The motivation to exercise has to come from inside; after taking the class students should be more com- pelled to exercise vigorously, " ex- plained instructor Sue Kruse.

Yet out of 240 chemistry students, only eighteen were enrolled in Honors Chemistry. While the class was small, it had a very impressive reputation. One of the major factors in Honors Chem’s success was Floyd Sturtevant, the teacher. In recognition of his entertaining, instructive style, Sturte- vant was awarded the James Bryant Conant Award in High School Chemistry Teaching. Another factor in Honors Chem's popularity was the way it was taught. Instead of studying a chapter in a book, students were given a packet of experiments. This " packet system " was in use in four Iowa high schools, and thirty others had asked for the materials. " Honors Chem was unique, " Bob Wunder said. “Our class had higher entropy, " chimed in Alan Miller, referring to the apparent disorder of the class. In reality, the work the class did was very structured, but this was rarely noticeable. " It had a hard skeleton, but we couldn't feel it at skin-level, " Miller continued. " It was a college course, " Sturtevant commented. " The students worked with more difficult material. Honors gave them a headstart on the average freshman class. " Above right: THE LIGHTER SIDE.

Me 799944055, e Ze Pes oo я " I Dialing to learn more Sophomores studying recent American foreign policy in history not only learned about officials of this period, but also experienced a new way to talk to them. Using a machine untried at Ames High, called Teleconference, history teacher Kirk Daddow dialed the Washington D.C. telephone number of Joseph Sisco, assistant Secretary of State during the Vietnam War. The Teleconference machine amplified Sisco's voice into the room, and enabled students to hear him as well as talk to him. Students passed microphones around, and even bv the end of class, not all of their ques- tions had been asked. " It was interesting to know you were talking to someone as far away as Washington D.C., " commented Linn Johnston. " Students learned additional infor- mation and heard opinions different from mine, " explained Daddow, who had been an attacker of Vietnam while Sisco had been a defender. Both students and teachers were en- thusiastic about the machine's first use at Ames High. They felt Teleconference would make classes more interesting since it enabled students to learn from well-known specialists in various fields. Above: CONSTITUTIONAL.

Students experiencing difficulties were staffed into various classes after a series of tests. In one section, students were inte- grated into regular classes with the exception of English. With the help of a special needs teacher, students studied basic English skills such as reading and grammar. They also stud- ied what was necessary for survival after high school, mainly independ- ent living skills. “We try to make them as aware as possible of what they will be faced with after leaving high school,’ explained special needs Mary Kurtz, Leone Michelle. | : L | “ , teacher Stan Rabe. In another section of the department, students studied adult living skills also. Some were involved in the EBCE program and worked two hours a day at experience sites such as Ran- dall's Grocery or the North Grand Nursing Home. The students had two to six periods a day, and some were integrated into regular classes such as shop, art, and government. The common focus of the different sections oÍ special needs was teaching students to be independent and to ful- fill their capabilities. “First they have to accept that they have a di sability, then they can learn to compensate for it,” said department coordinator, Ele- Nore Tallman.

Many students who wanted to take DE found they couldn’t work in the afternoon due to involvement in cheerleading, athletics, SPIRIT and other afternoon activities. Students who discovered such con- flicts frequently opted to work on weekends or several evenings a week instead of every afternoon. “Tm not getting the hours I want,” said Elaine Dennis, who worked at County Seat for her co-op hours. Working only in the evening, she also wanted to work in the afternoon but couldn't due to various conflicts. “The hours were flexible in this pro- gram, " explained DE coordinator Darrill Abel. First students figured out how many classes they were go- ing to have, then applied to stores that could employ them during their free hours. Students found evening jobs available at North Grand Mall, especially in clothing and department stores. Distributive Education not only allowed students to obtain money and work experience, but helped them decide if they wanted a business-related career. Above left MERCHANDISING.

Occasionally available were Taylas, Don Fitzgerald. Back: Ray Huston, such items as cottage cheese, macaroni salad, muffins and crackers. Similar salad bars had been tried at other high schools and found suc- cessful before Ames High obtained one. " Ames High sold a lot of chef's salads, therefore it was logical to assume a salad bar would be en- joyed, " remarked Kathy Morgan, food department manager. Many students expressed good opinions of the new salad bar, and judging by the number of students us- ing it, felt it was successful. “A lot of people bought salads, the line was almost longer than the regular lunch line,” observed Dave Koester. " The salad bar was much better than ready made salads or the chef's salads we had. Also, the ingredients were much fresher,” explained Shana Gillette. Left: CHOOSING.

These words were on the school stationery, in the " Loyalty " lyrics, and shouted by fans at sports events, Most students dis- missed them as a catchy phrase with- out stopping to think about standards often expected of them as Ames High students. Whether in academics or activities, students e ncountered high expecta- tions and were often compared to standards of previous groups. Traditionally strong showings in many areas at Ames High and com- parison to groups from other years caused some achievements to seem less outstanding, even though they were greater than those in other schools. For example, a student who received an ACT (American College Test) composite score of 20 was below the 1979-80 Ames High average score of 22.6, but was still above the national average of 18.5. Three of 13 DECA members who rep- resented Iowa were from Ames. No other school had this many delegates, yet this didn't equal last year's record four state officers. Besides being classified by others, some activities were also evaluated by judges criteria. The Speech Club sent nine individu- als to Super State, an honor never equaled by another Iowa High school. The SPIRIT received a four-star All- American rating from the National Scholastic Press Association, ranking it among the top high school year- books nationally. The WEB was named Iowa’s best school page pub- lished in a daily paper. Designated " honor band " after win- ning the 1980 competition, the band marched first in the spring VEISHEA parade. Whether they met their tests with favorable results and were rewarded or failed to meet personal or accepted standards, students continued to aim high at Ames Hi. Right: THOUGHTFUL. Greg Milligan blows a bubble while writing his answer to a survey. Bottom: DRUMMING ALONG. Dave Manion concentrates on his music during marching band practice. Below: FOOD ROOM. The cafeteria is crowded at noon where students have the options of eating hot lunch, pack-a-sack, a selection from the salad bar or ice cream. = а i ` - : t RG, ЗА “ - a dë Е " e P A ` -a - „+ X 4 ° X = di e Lé J » ` - J » - e " .
