Text from Pages 1 - 96 of the 1982 volume:

AHS was shaken by all of the changes going on within the community as well as within the rest of the world. Some AHS students witnessed a rare occurance on March 10, 1982. The nine planets of the solar system were at the point of their closest alignment — an approximate 100-degree arc. This has not been witnessed for 500 years and will not be visible until 2492. Although the planets seemed close together, those nearest are more than 4 mil- lion miles apart — half the distance between the sun and Earth. Students were shocked in early March 1982 by the news of Actor-Comedian John Belushi, age 33, who died from an apparent overdose of heroin and cocaine. Spirit Of The Changing Times FRICTION BETWEEN NATIONS: 10 hot disputes Eighteen-year-old males who must register for the Selective Services within 30 days of their 18th birthday were greatly affected by the changes in the world. Since the whole world is in dispute this was strongly enforced. The 10 "hottest" disputes in the world were scattered over three continents: 1. Argentina — Chile; 2. Morocco — Western Sahara; 3. Namibia — South Africa (Cyprus); 7. Israel — Arab Neighbors; 8. Iran — Iraq; 9. Indian — Pakistan; 10. China — Vietnam. (See Map) Not Shown: Great Britain and Argentina over the Falkland Islands. After a long silence. Mount St. Helens Volcano showed everybody she was not done blowing her top yet. It was Friday, March 19, 1982 when steam and ash blew 36,000 feet above the peak and raised the danger of floods in the low-land areas. (Pic. 1) 2’Ti m-i Americans witnessed the pre-dawn fueling hitch and take-off of the Columbia Spaceship on the local TV stations on Monday March 22, 1982. It was on its third, busiest and longest test flight. With Columbia en route to space. Mission Control reported one of its auxiliary power units had overheated and they were or- dered to shut it down. (Pic. 2) Columbia soared 150 miles with Lousma and pilot C. Gordon Fullerton in control. Lousma is a 46-year-old Marine Colonel. He was aboard Skylab 2 in 1973 for 59 days. Fullerton, a 45-year-old colonel has been an astronaunt for 16 years but has never flown in space before. (Pic. 1) New laws that were initiated in 1982 had a great influence on many students at AHS. On March 24, 1982, a law was passed forbidding motorists to drive "jacked up" vehicles. The Iowa legislation made it illegal to drive a vehicle which has had the suspension altered to raise the front or rear end more than five inches higher than the vehicle manufacturer's original specifica- tions. However this law does not include vehicles 25 years or older, any vehicle primarily designed for off-highway use which is used in the owner's occupation, vehicles with governmental agency license plates, and vehicles that are reconstructed or spe- cially constructed. Authorized emergency vehicles and any vehi- cle used to apply agricultural chemicals are also exempt from this new law. The other law that was passed during 1982 was the law that cracked down on teenage drinking and drug abuse. The stricter law was passed in hopes to cut down on the teenage alcohol and drug abuse. The next, and probably the most welcomed change in the world, is the falling gas prices. The price fell 2.3° in February 1982 and had dropped 1.7% in January 1982 which left i» around $1.10 per gallon. Although all of these changes influence each person in a different way, none of them will affect AHS students as much as the changing of the conferences. Travel expenses and the desire to compete with schools of the same size were the chief factors involved in the conferece changes. The Rolling Hills Activities Conference will include Walnut and Elk Horn-Kimballton (of the West- ern Iowa Conference), Exira (of the Coon Valley Confer- ence) and C M, Anita, Orient-Macksburg, and Bridgewater-Fontaneele (of the Little Eight Conference). The new conference will offer a full schedule of boys and girls sports along with music and a science fair. The five remaining schools of the old Little Eight Conference joined with Guthrie Center, Van Meter and Martinsdale St. Mary's to form the second new conference, The West Central Eight. These new conferences take affect starting the 1982- 83 school year. During the past year, everyone had been faced with different kinds of changes and have adjusted their lives to meet the demands of these changes and look forward to what tomorrow has to offer us. fylliy Hills Conference 3The spirit of entertainment in AHS was very good this year. Many students participated in various ac- tivities for both the school and community. Pic. 1. At the homecoming parade, the junior high band added to the procession for the first time.

Al- though just a few students were part ot an accompli- shemnt at a given moment, the whole school shared in the excitement and in many cases, helped them reach high to accomplish their goals. The football team had a disappointing season but to accomplish winning the four games coaches, cheer- leaders, (Pic. 1) and fans stood behind the players through the season. The wrestling squad concluded an enjoyable season with many members placing high in tournaments and two going on to state. Pic. 2 In his first year of wrestling, senior Todd Johnson joined the varsity wrestling squad and finished the year out with a 13-14 record and placed 2nd at Conference tournament at 167 pounds. The 1982 Royalty Court consisted of Joy Rodgers and Tim Eilts as Sweetheart King and Queen (Pic. 3) while Jill Neighbors and Todd Johnson were chosen Homecom- ing King and Queen. Erica Aggen and Joel Jackson were chosen as crownbearers (Pic. 5).

The members once again triumphed by taking the 13th and final Little Eight Conference trophy. Early in the fall the NFL had the most degrees in the Western Iowa District. The degrees are determined by the number of speeches members give. To achieve this feat, AHS had to beat much larger schools such as West Des Moines Valley, Roosevelt, Spencer, and Atlantic. The 9th annual NFL banquet was held on May 9,1982. At the banquet, senior members were roasted, and awards were given to recognize achievements in speech and debate.

At the Iowa High School Speech Asso- ciation state debate tournament, the four varsity debaters earned runner-up in class B. They also took runner-up in their class at the Iowa Forensic League's "All Iowa Finals." For the fourth year the AHS debate team belonged to the Western Iowa League of Debate. At the WILD's, the varsity team won 3 first places, 2 seconds, and 2 thirds. The novices took 2 firsts, and 2 seconds. Forty two percent of the WILD trophies were won by the debaters.

Eleven outstandings were given to AHS speakers — the most statewide. Since the All-State Festival began in 1979, no school has re- ceived this many outstandings. They also received 34 division I (superior) ratings and 10 division II (excellent) ratings. Pic. 1 The students who participated in Humorous, Prose, Poetry, Book Review, and After Dinner.

Even though they didn't achieve this goal, they did learn valuable lessons. The players real- ized that it takes more than individual tal- ent to win. Overall, the Spartans had a 4 - 5 record. The shutout of Exira was one of the high- lights. Before Exira, the Spartans had been doing very poorly, but at Exira the team worked together to finish the season in style. The overtime victory against A-C and the homecoming victory against B-F were also highlights, The game against undefeat- ed S-M earned the gridders the most re- spect for the season. Even though we lost 6-0, the S-M offense did not score and the Spartan offense out rushed S-M. We did play a lot of underclassmen. With the experience they gained, I think that we have established a excellent nucle- us for several seasons to come," said Wil- let, “One phrase to summerize the season would have to be 'team effort' ' SCOREBOARD Anita Opponent 0 Earlham 13 6 O-M 18 14 Dexfield 6 0 S-M 6 21 B-F (Homecoming) 6 6 A-C (Overtime) 0 6 C-M (Parents Night) 24 0 P-L 28 26 Exira 0 Pic. 1.

Next year's team should prove to be better since the team was very young this year. A lot of hard work was prominent in this year's team; although their final re- cord was 5-15. Coach Dave Bodlt's comment on the season was: "This was a rebuilding year for us. We knew every game would be tough because almost every team had their entire squad returning. We had our ups and downs, lost some close games, but improved as the season progressed. At the end of the season, I felt we were very com- petitive." Mike Brichacek was elected to 3rd team All-Conference.

With Chris Stork and Terry Scarf as state qualifiers, things look great for next year. The conference trophy, the last in the Little 8, was the cap to the undefeated 11-0 dual season. At districts Chris Stork placed first, and Terry Scarf placed second, advancing them both to state. This is the fourth straight year Anita has had two wrestlers advance to state competition. At state Scarf was defeated in the preliminary rounds, but Stork defeated his opponent in preliminaries. In the quarter finals Stork was defeated. Pic. 1. Ross Havens working his way to a victory.

Four events competed at the state track meet at Drake. Jill Neighbors in the 100 m. dash; sprint medley (Kay Ehrman, The- resa Willet, Marcia Squires, Jill Neighbors); 4 x 200 m. relay (Jill Neighbors, Gina Lund, Kay Ehr- man, Marcia Squires, and the 4 x 400 m. relay (Marcia Squires, Kay Ehrman, Teresa Phillips, Jody Harris) Jill Neighbors placed 5th in the dash with 12.07: the sprint med- ley placed 4th with 1:53.7; and the 4 x 400 placed 6th with 4:14.5. These relays were the first relays to place and score for Anita at a state meet. Coach Lynn Johnson com- mented, "It was a very good sea- son with an excellent overall re- cord. It was very enjoyable to coach someone as talented and unselfish as Jill Neighbors." m SCOREBOARD P-L Relays 4th Greenfield Relays 3rd Dexfield Invitational 4th Spartanette Relays Corning Relays 2nd 1st tie Conference 3rd tie District 3rd NEW SCHOOL RECORDS Spring medley(at state finals) 1:53.7 (Kay Ehrman, Theresa Willet, Marcia Squires, Jill Neighbors) Long jump (at Lamoni indoor meet) 16'11" (Jill Neighbors) Picl.

The boys team had a 5-2 record, losing only to Atlantic. The girls ended with an even record of 4-4. Coach Foulkes had these comments: "I feel the seniors have done well during the four years that we have had tennis as a competitive sport. We also have some very talented under- classmen whose play meant the difference between winning a match or losing. We must remember that the winning records were compiled against schools with larger enrollments. I am very pleased with this tennis team, they are a credit to this school." At the close of the season, Denise Rathman was awarded the Blooper Award. This award has been presented three of the four years to a tennis player who has had a 'Blooper' during the season. The first year, Dianne Murphy received the trophy for hit- ting her double partner, Joy Rodgers, while attempting to serve in a match. In the second year of tennis, none was awarded the trophy. Last year, Jeff Konz received the award for hitting the oppo- nent "below the belt" at a match in Atlantic. This year, Denise Rathman was awarded the trophy for two reasons. Denise hit her double partner in a match, and later, broke her racquet while 'awesomely' playing the net. Pic 1. Scott Phillips serves the ball in his first round at dis- tricts at Denison. Pic 2.

With the help of Mr. Leinen and the cheerleaders, the football players were able to have a 4 and 1 record. At the same time the girls were busy with volleyball. They ended the season with a 0 and 2 record. The winter sports were in full swing with basketball and wrestling. The boys ended the season with a 4 and 5 record. The girls had a 2 and 7 season. The wrestlers came out with a 4 -3-2 split season. Spring was just around the corner with track. The young track stars were running their fullest. The boys won one 2nd place, two 3rd places and 8th at conference. The girls ended with one 5th place, two 7th places and 8th at conference. Besides sports, the junior high students enjoyed two dances and two skating parties. In May all seventh and eighth graders went to the Sac Aerospace Museum and saw many different kinds of planes. In the afternoon at DeSoto Bend, they was a film on wood ducks (an endangered species) and the artifacts of the Bertram, which was a steamship that had sunk in the 1860's and was recovered in 1969. Through all the disappointments and excitements, the ju- nior high had a magnificent year. Pic 1. The junior high band marched in force in the Home- coming parade. Pic 2. The junior high float.
