The year started off well with the girls' volleyball team earning the conference trophy and Anita football team winning the Homecoming game against Adair-Casey. The year continued with our basketball teams doing well, and the wrestlers sending two grapplcrs to state meet. The speech students set a new record for I's at state speech contest; and many awards were won in journalism and muic contests. The year was rounded out with spring sports, prom and graduation. And so ended another year of memorable events. Pic 2. Many new faces were seen within the walls of AHS, including this stand-in for Na- omi. Pic 3. Reigning as faculty Homecoming king and queen were Mr. John Burke and Mr. Dan Leinen. Attendants for the event were; Mrs. Ruthe Brocker, Mr. Dennis Zimmer- man, Miss Becky Hartstack. and Mr. Gary Currie. 4 I 2Former Beatle Member Shot The world was shocked with the sudden violent death of John Lennon on De- cember 9, 1980. Lennon, with the Beatles, started a whirlwind music revolution in the 1960’s. Beatlemania, as the revolution was called, promoted long hair and their new kind of music. Many parents opposed this craze; but it was unstoppable. Lennon. Paul McCartney. Ringo Starr, and George Harrison broke up in 1971 to start careers of their own. Lennon, with his wife. Yoko Ono, brought out many albums and had just released “Double Fantasy” when John was shot. Pic 1: John Lennon and assailant, David Chapman. Ordeal Over The United States got a double dose of celebration on Inaugural Day. 1981. Not only was Ronald Reagan sworn in at noon on January 20. but the citizens of America were notified that the hostages in Iran were set free. Americans were ecstatic that the 444- day imprisonment of fifty-two men and women was over. The ordeal began No- vember 4. 1979, when Iranian militants took over the United Stales Embassy in Teheran. Immediately American patrio- tism flared: almost every town across the country had its symbolistic yellow ribbons, fifty-two flags, and day tallys. lowans es- pecially watched for Katherine Koob, a fellow Iowan from Jessup (on right. Pic 3.) Through the assistance of the Algerians, the U.S. negotiated the hostages’ return partly by agreeing to return the Shah’s wealth. There was disagreement about how the situation should have been han- dled. but everyone was glad they were home. Inevitable Draft? Draft registration, which was done away with in 1973. has been reinstated for all 18 year old males. A lot of disagreement has arisen from the new registration laws. Most disagree- ment has been on whether registration should include females. Many others ques- tion whether the draft itself should be rein- stated. But most agree that the U.S. needs something to increase our military strength. Volcano Blows Its Top The northwest U.S. was plagued all summer by ash from Mount St. Helens’ volcano. The first eruption on May 18, 1980, was followed by four more major blasts in June. July. August, and October. The volcano caused few problems except the ones created by the ash. The ash cov- ered such a large area and caused pollu- tion. The volcano(Pic 1) located near Spir- it Lake. Washington, is pictured here with its crater visible. The El Salvador Threat The situation in El Salvador, a small country in Central America, is becoming more and more heated; and the U.S. is ironically handling it the same way as we did in Vietnam. Thus far. no war has broken out, but there have been skir- mishes and people have been killed-including four American missionaries. President Reagan has sent forty-five military ad- visors and equipment to the right-wing government of El Salvador. The situation there is becom- ing a threat to American peace- time.ELECTION 1980 Ronald Reagan, a 70 year old for- mer movie star, took the office of President of the United States on Jan- uary 20. 1981. The ex-governor of California won the Republican nomi- nation in July and rose to win the gen- eral election on November 4, 1980. George Bush. Reagan's opponent dur- ing the primaries, was named as his running mate. One of the first acts of the new President was government economic cuts to slow down rampaging inflation. Some of the major cuts arc in school aid and programs to help college stu- dents. Reagan was to sign a bill to reduce government buying of dairy products, when — on March 27 — Reagan was shot. He was answering questions for reporters outside the Washington, D.C. Hilton when six shots rang out. Four people were injured: Reagan; James Brady, (press secretary); a Se- cret Service agent; and a Washington policeman John W. Hinckley, Jr. has been accused of the shooting. Pic 1.

FAMILIAR The 1980-81 administration has especially worked 'overtime' because of problems caused by declining enrollment and decreased state aid. These cuts for the 1981-82 school years have brought up questions of faculty reductions, reduced course offerings, and general budget spending cuts. It was finally decided cuts be directed towards non-certified staff and postponement of bus purchases. Pic I.

In order to be a member of this chapter, each person had to obtain an outside job in business. In the office education class many units arc covered, including telephone techniques, business math, duplicating machines, and job applications. The most important unit is record management. On October 6th and 7th. the OEA attended the state elections in Des Moines, where Dan Pollock and Melanie Harmscn were our chapter nominees for state officers. The OEA traveled to the state convention, in Des Moines, where Teresa Anderson and Sherry Lank got honorable mention. 5th place, for a scrapbook that they had made. To raise money, the OEA sold candy, sponsored a pie throw at the benefit game, and introduced Computer Fun. a dating service. For service projects, the OEA put on a Thanksgiving skit at Con- gregate meals, and went winter caroling at the nursing home. Pic I. Shelley Chelesvig. Dan Pollock. Joyce Vokt.

Wolfgang Neumann. “Some people I knew had gone to the U.S. and last year my cousin went. I decided I wanted to go too.“ said Neu- mann. Therefore, he wrote to Youth for Understanding and applied to be a foreign exchange student. He was accepted and came to live with the Varel Bailey family. Schule am Heimgarten is the school he goes to in Ahrens- burg. West Germany. They have thirteen grades in Germany schools. The first ten years they arc required to take eleven courses In eleventh grade they can pick which courses they will take the next three years. “School is much harder in Germany 4 explained Wolf- gang. “we go from 7:50 a m. to 1:00 p.m. on the long days and we alternate from five to six days a week, including every other Saturday. At AHS. W'olfgang has been involved in speech, basket- ball, chorus, band, and tennis. “Speech is my favorite activity, and Humanities is my favorite class “I have made a lot of friends here and someday I hope to come back. Besides the usual student council sponsored activities as Home- coming. ice cream sales, spirit week, and the Twerp dance, the council has also hosted visiting council members from surrounding schools, and a number of assemblies, sock hops and pre-Christmas vacation movies for the student body entertainment this past year.

STUDENT COUNCILDAYS BEFORE THE WAR The countdown for WW III. Anita vs. A-C, began Sunday. October 5 as the Spartans let off some steam through intramural volleyball games. The faculty came out on top. To entertain our troops, the freshman class held the annual Gong Show on Sunday. The Gong Show honors were taken by the little cheerleaders: Jill Jcssen, Leslie Willet. and Adrienne Willet. Monday the civilians doubled the spirit by dressing like another person. On Tuesday the student body leaders assigned a hallway to each class to decorate according to the theme. The Juniors took top honors by having the best camouflaged hallway. The senior football players did a routine to “Another One Bites the Dust’4 at their pep rally on Tuesday. On Wednesday, AHS looked like it was in a time machine as student wore clothing from out of the 50’s. Thursday was slave day, all student council and class leaders were sold to the student body. The faculty also took part in the enthusiasm on Thursday during the activity period, with a pep rally (including cheerleaders), pep band, and coronation skit.

AHS went to three major tournaments: Ottumwa. Iowa City, and Atlantic. This was the third year AHS belonged to a debate conference known as Western Iowa League of Debate (WILD). Schools which belong to WILD are: Atlantic. Ogden, Carroll. Kucmpcr, Lohrville, and Anita. AHS went to 5 WILD tourneys and brought home three first place trophies and one third. At the WILD finals.

Mr. Harkin came and presented some of his views and had a question and answer period. (Pic 2). The traditional Veterans’ Day program was held in November. (Pic 4). The student council sponsored Wilfred Hetzel, a basketball trick shooter who has appeared on numer- ous television shows, to entertain the student body. Mr Warren Grant (Pic 3) came to school and gave a presentation on Kenya, Africa. He has taken over the job of Mr. and Mrs. Al Bell, who for many years have been traveling to different countries and touring most of the schools in Iowa telling of their travels. Again this year a rock band from the Strategic Air Command base in Omaha came to AHS to entertain the students with their music. (Pic I). A presentation on cancer was given by Mr. Don Ritchie. He talked to the students in small groups about smoking and its effects, and how smoking affected his life. There was also a presentation given by Wayne Stedman who por- trayed Mark Twain.

IS 41The 1980 softball season started off with a bang With flashy new uniforms, the girls won their first game, but they were defeated in their second game by a super pitching team, O-M. After about five ga- mes.thc team was plagued with injuries. The pitcher. Kelly Wesscls, sprained her ankle and was out for a couple of games. The third baseman, Kandi Reindl. broke her arm and was out for the season. The team ended up with a 7-13 record which placed them 6th in conference.

AHS was picked to be a superior power in the Little Eight conference. But the first game, played with Earlham, ended in a disappointing defeat. The next three games were also losses; it began to look fruitless. Fortunately, the mood was broken, and we pulled out into a four game winning streak, including shut-out victories over A-C and B-F. The varsity finished the season with a 4-5 record. The J-V squad had a good season with a 3-1 record. The last game of the season the second time we met C-M — was a disappointment because they pulled out a one point victory. The true highlights of the season were the All-State and the All-Conference selections. Dave Waddell made first team All-State defense. Tim Whcclock. Charlie Eades, and Ryan Glissmann were also on the All-State roster. The following people made All-Conference: Dave Waddell. Tim Whcclock. Char- lie Eades.

Even though we weren’t in the con- ference race, we did have a ‘say’ in the outcome by giving S-M their first conference loss. We will miss the seniors next year, but I think we have an excellent group of girls coming back that will help us have another successful season.” The Spartancttes also broke a four-year losing streak at Section- als by defeating Greensficld in the first round. They advanced to the second rounds, but were defeated in a close game by Guthrie Center. Pic. I Row 1: The 1980-81 Girls’ Basketball Squad are: Row 1: Jill Neighbors.

The games wc lost were by a combined total of only 16 points.’ Elk Horn- Kimbalton, ranked second in southwest Iowa, outscored Anita 17-7 in the final eight minutes of the sectional semi-final game to record a 42-38 victory that ended Anita's season. Anita started out the season with an 8-0 record. The Spartans' impressive play earned them a number one rating in southeast Iowa by the Omaha World-Herald and a seventeenth place rating in Class 1-A by the Dcs Moines Register. Having an 11-1 record, the Spartans went on the road for four consecutive games. They returned with 3 losses and a two-point win which changed the complexion of the season. Pic. I.

At the conference tourney, AHS received second place. S-M beat them by 4VS points which was especially disappointing because only 5 days before. AHS had beaten S-M in a dual meet. Placing first and second at conference were: Sean Grant — 1st, Kyle Nclsen — 1st, Terry Scarf 2nd, Ryan Glissmann — 1st. Chris Stork — 2nd, Charlie Eades — 1st, Tim Wheelock — 1st. Dave Waddell was injured the night before conference play. Dave Waddell and Charlie Eades placed first at both sectional and district play. Sean Grant and Terry Scarf placed second at sectionals and were eliminated at districts. Both Eades and Waddell were beaten in the first round of state competition.

This year they found themselves at the Fon- tcncllc Forest and the Henry Doorly Zoo to study the ecology of animals. At the forest, all of the AJH stu- dents went on a guided hike. The hike was one and a half miles long. They hiked down to the river and up the bluffs. Some of the students saw an Indian meeting place used over 150 years ago. “Of the entire forest I liked the Indi- an meeting spot the best.” said Jacquie Thclen. an AJH student. At the zoo they went on tours led by docents — volunteer guides. They learned about things similar to what they learned at the forest about animal ecology. They saw exotic birds, fish, and ani- mals. One of the first stops was the bear enclosure where the main attrac- tion was the baby polar bears. The po- lar bears had just come out of their den for the first time only a few days before the AJH students visited the zoo. “Those little polar bears were so cute,” pointed out Lori Nelscn. “The day was very interesting.” ex- plained Jenny Wessels, a seventh grad- er, “It was fun.” Pic I.

Probably the most remembered activity was by the senior winter athletes who dressed up in out- fits and body paint and danced to the song “Whip It" by Dcvo. The 81 seniors tried to start a tradition by tossing their mor- tarboards in the air at the end of graduation ceremonies. These are only a very few scenes of this class’ crazy activities. 82THE SERIOUS SIDE As the end of thirteen years of school approaches, the seniors begin to say “remember when 44 . Dave Waddell and Mike Retz would get their faces wet and put paper towels on them so they would stick. ’ 44 ... we made glasses out of twisties and wore them during Mrs. Heeren’s math class." 44 . . . Lori Harris and Brian Hahn shared one candy bar in 5th grade " 44 .. . Joey Kaufmann and Janet Jes- sen used to go together, and everybody thought they would get married." 44 ... we played ‘Kiss Tag’, until a teacher came check on us." 44 ... we could buy a can of pop for 25c, a candy bar for 10c. and a gallon of gas for 59c " 44 ... we passed ‘Somebody’s germs, no returns’”. 44 . we played Truth or Dare." 44 ... in elementary and Jr. High we were always fighting to get a best friend and we could only have one." Those were the “good ole days"! The class of ’81 will also remember some of the last, more serious moments they shared. Pic 1. Mr. Burke directing seniors through practice for com- mencement.

At Springbrook the seniors along with sponsors. John Burke and Noel Wingate, and bus driver. Dennis Petersen, enjoyed a picnic lunch and a day full of activities including hiking and swimming. The night before graduation the senior class met at the Redwood for, as Mr. Burke calls it. the “Last Supper". Dinner was served family style with a choice of tenderloin or chicken. Dave Waddell and Linda Van Horn served as Masters of Ceremonies. The Class voting, the I Wills, the I Remembers, and the Class Prophecy was read. Comments about past school memories were made by Tim Wheelock, Ryan Glissmann. Amy Andersen, and Richard Simmons. Other entertainment for the evening came from two old favor- ites from elementary - Eraser Derby and Show and Tell. Rodney Taylor came in first in the Eraser Derby. In Show and Tell Joey Kaufmann won first prize and Sue Bailey came in second. Pic 1. Master of Ceremonies - Dave Waddell tells a humorous short story about Brad Barber at the Senior Supper. Pic 2.

SHARON VAIS Volleyball 2,3; Girls’ Track 1.2; JV Footballwj AHSthis year, proved to be an exciting adventureland for «any of us. The highlights of the year were the three conference championships brought home by the volleyball team, the speech department, and the girls' track team. The country itself saw an election of a new president and the release of our American hostages from Iran. We also saw attempts on the lives of President Reagan and Pope John Paul II. There have been many things this year that have not been pleasant, but we have learned from the and they have renewed a sense of pride in America that moot of us have never seen. We hope you have enjoyed this yearbook with its coverage of not Just school events Out also world events. I would like to thank my staff for doing a great Job of getting thin book put together this year. — {arla Larsen - editor; Staff: Sue Bailey, Julie Williamson, Debbie Masker, Jill Neighbors, Kris Behnken, Brian Hann, Julie Stork, Karlc llennen, Clayton Christensen, Jack Barber, Rhonda Bartelson Shelly Scott, Teresa Phillips, Scot Bailey, an) Mrs. Cheryl McCaskey - adviaex.
