Anita Community High School
WINTER ...... 29
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
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
Members of our number one team were seniors,
Kyle Brocker, Dave Schellenberg, and Kirk
Kelloway along with junior Adrian Tierney.We Came, We Saw,
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,
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
It was a learning season for the underclassmen,
as they eagerly await a chance to avenge last

9WE FOUND VICTORY AND DEFEAT
11Friday Night at the Movies made Homecoming 73 a memorable oc-
casion for all of us. 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
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

The AHS Journalism Department, embodied in the
Spy and Spartan staffs presented the Student Body
with High literary achievement again this year. 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

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

The thing that I enjoyed most about High School
and «will remember the longest was when we worked
on Prom and working on our Homecoming floats.
My biggest highlight was playing football all four
years of High School. 'Galen Walters
The biggest highlights of my high school years
really can t be described as happening in just one
year. It was actually just being able to have grown
through those four years, having friends, helping
friends, and just being a friend. -Cathy Wessling

One of the things I remember most was when we
were sophomores and got our class rings. We showed
them off to everybody just because they had dia-
monds in them. -Glenora Baylor
The biggest thrill of my High School years was when
our debate team won the double crown this year; the
IHSSA Class B Championship at Dowling and the All
All-Iowa Class A Championship at Iowa City.
One of my biggest thrills was being cheerleader, and
riding the fire truck in the Homecoming parade.
Sitting up there looking down on everybody, I knew
what team spirit really means. -Vicki VanderburCLASS FLOWER:

I think the most impressive highlight of my high
school career was the 1973 prom. We got to know
each other better and had a lot of fun doing it.

and winning first prize for it. -Jean Huffman

The biggest highlight of my high school years can

sales, our Junior Prom and finally our Senior Grad-
uation. -Beverly Kopp
One experience that I'll never forget was the time
I taught self-defence for mini courses. All I thought
of the whole week was, would we make it through
the week without anyone getting hurt? I'm relieved,
we did. - Beth Lane

SCIENCE AWARD: Kyle BrockerWe Ended a High School Career
For the Seniors it was the culmination of four years of dedicated work.
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.
