1974 SPARTAN Anita Community High School Founded 1869 Anita, Iowa Volume XXXV CONTENTS FALL ..........7 WINTER ...... 29 SPRING....... 53 We came as freshman, a little unsure and scared, but we gained courage and with that courage we found confidence. We made friends and developed character. Warm smiles and friendly hellos helped us through each Monday morning. We expressed ourselves through art, music, speech, sports, and classes and thus proved ourselves as individuals. We were one as a school and pride showed through us. We found joy in victory and learned to accept defeat We now leave AHS but we'll never forget the 1973-1974 school year. For with us are all the cherished memories of our High School days. These were the good days of laughter, tears, work, determination and through this we have truly found success.We Grew Through Experiences 3WeEarned the HighestWe're Number One! That was the cry of our debaters as A.H.S. claimed its first undisputed state championship on February 16. Traveling to Des Moines for the state tournament at Dowling, Anita ended the day with a perfect 8-0 record while Lincoln High had a 6-2 re- cord for second place. That evening the top two teams debated on WHO T-V. A Perfect 3-0 ballot by the judges awarded Anita its 1974 championship. Members of our number one team were seniors, Kyle Brocker, Dave Schellenberg, and Kirk Kelloway along with junior Adrian Tierney.We Came, We Saw, ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■I We’ll NeverForget 6FOOTBALL 1973 8 This year's football season was a disappointing one for the Spartans, as they were badly hurt by the loss of thirteen seniors from last year's team. They wound up with a 2-7 record in a season climaxed by the Homecoming trouncing of B-F, 28-6. The Spartans gave the new overtime rule a work- out, as they played two, with split results. The team dropped two heartbreakers to A-C and C-M as they were outscored in the final twenty seconds in both. It was a learning season for the underclassmen, as they eagerly await a chance to avenge last season's losses.

As it recalled to us past trimphs and inspired us to future success, it found its way into all of our hearts. The Homecoming festivities officially began Thursday night as the cheerleaders led the annual snake dance and bonfire pep rally. Friday afternoon, Queen Debbie Weber and King Gary Harris were crowned by the '63 King and Queen, Herman Claussen and Nancy Me Luen Gustaf- son, in a shimmering coronation dedicated to Mr. John Burke, Anita High School teacher. Afterwards, a parade which proudly displayed our new King and Queen and their attendants, Kirk Kelloway, Carol Holaday, Doug Karns, and Beth Lane, wound its way through town to a pep rally in the city park. The caravan also featured floats built by the classes, the AHS March- ing Spartans, and a novelty, the B-F fire department. The climax, of course, was Friday night's game as the Spartans rolled over B-F, 26-8. The float judging results were also announced then, as the Seniors placed first, Sophomore second. Juniors third, and Freshmen last. A new tradition was set as the Homecoming dance was held on Saturday night in the Anita High Auditorium. The student body danced to the music of Burnt Shoe, as Homecoming slipped away to another year.HOMECOMING 1973 13QUEEN DEBBIE WEBER AND KING GARY HARRIS“Friday Night At the Movies”STUDENTS FOR EDUCATIONAL SERVICE FIRST ROW: Mr. VanDyne, Joyce Brown, Mary Kluever, Vicki Vanderbur, David Schellenberg, Bev Kopp; SEC- OND ROW: Bob Power, Christie Boysen, Julie Harris, Carole Bishop, Colette Richter, Rita Steffens, Deb Weber, Mona Ebner, Cathy Wessling, Beth Lane, Linda Westphal, Carol Holaday, Mona Cassell; THIRD ROW: Dan Jor- genson, Debbie Kraus, Virginia Berger, Deb Westphal, Susan Schellenberg, Kris Kopp, JeanThelen, Carol Hart- ley, Joni Kaufman, Leann Holaday, Patty Fisher, Julia Sudmann; FOURTH ROW: Pat Cassell, Dave Wahlert, Mike Barnes.

Mrs. Emalie Tebrink was sponsor of both. The SPARTAN staff, under Editor Carol Holaday, Assistant Editor Bev Kopp, and Junior Editor Dan Fay, collected and composed the '74 Spartan with the theme "Through the Seasons: We Came, We Saw, We'll Never Forget". The staff, by work-long nights, managed to meet all three press deadlines, and compile this record of our year. This year's SPY Staff, led by Editor Vicki Vander- bur, spent their time maintaining an accurate record of day-to-day life at AHS. For the first time, the SPY was enlarged and arranged in semi-weekly in- stallments. The regular staff was also assisted by the journalism class. 59“EVENING ON THE ISLANDS’’ Amid South Sea breezes and swaying palm trees, the AHS Junior and Senior classes celebrated 1974 Prom with "An Evening in the Eslands", April 27. Backed by a flowing fountain and lush greenery, fourteen sophomores served an Hawaiian luau that included roast pig and tropical nectar. After the feast, Junior Class President Pat Cassell gracious- ly welcomed the Class of '74, and Senior President Kirk Kelloway gave the response. The servers then entertained the guests with two Hawaiian hulas. At nine everyone re- turned to listen and dance to the music of Joker's Express. The prom movie, Straw Dogs began at one o'clock, con- cluding the Prom night festivities.AN EVENING TO REMEMBER CNJ v£ BOYS GIRLS GOLF Golf, the newest sport at AHS, proved unexpectedly successful this year. Jerry Hora coached both boys' and girls' teams to victory. The girls' team, in its first of- ficial year, gained two dual meet victories. With just five girls, they established a repu- tation for fighting hard and playing well. The boys' golf team, led by Senior Doug Karns, ended an impressive season by becoming the first athletic team this year to compete in district action. The varsity team was crowned as the sectional champion at the meet at Corning. GIRLS GOLF: Tina Ohms, Pam Eades, Mary Kluever, Diane Pollock.

For the underclassmen, it was the symbol of new responsibilities. For the faculty, it was the satisfaction at having done their job well. For the parents, it was the realization that their children had become adults. For all of us. Graduation '74 was a night to be proud of our achieve- ments, and to rejoice in their rewards. As each Senior mounted the dais to receive his diploma, we knew the sorrow of losing a friend, but we were comforted by the promise of his future success. It was a beginning and an end, an evening of conflicts faced with smiles and tears and heads always held high. For we found courage in the knowledge that the Seniors would go forth alone and return triumphant.
