Progress . . . Such steps have been instituted in order that this nation might live and that we, the people of dks, should survive in the established manner. Since the United States of America first began its journey to become the world ' s leading power, such steps have been necessary and imperative. Now, today, 200 years later, we may still enjoy the freedom and liberty for which this nation fought. Although the 200th celebration was commemorated in the U.S. and perhaps parts of the world, few stu- dents and community members par- ticipated to a great extent. However, a bicentennial plate contest was held to design the plate of Comanche County. Winners of the design shown on the cover were Mary Einsel, who originated the design, and Roy Hoff- man, who drew the design. Also on the county level, the Apollo Music Club of Coldwater organized a bi- centennial program which was pre- sented in June. Thus, an inner sense of growth was developed. To illustrate progress in The ' 76 Eagle, the majority of group pictiires contain a source of technology which has become essential to all forms of advancement. Hopefully, we. The ' 76 Eagle staff, have included all facts and events to make 1976, the bicenten- nial year, complete. r " N Contents Activities 6 Athletics 26 Academics .... 50 Album 70 V (1) Displaying his rhythmic talents during a lyceum, Steve Thompson aids a scientist who has improved the electric ukulale.

ACTIVITIES Stuco Solves Lounge Issues Faced with many difficult de- cisions, the student council, under the leadership of Duane Huck, strived to uphold school attitudes and morals. A common problem was the class responsibilities of cleaning the lounge. Because of the seniors constant neglect of this duty, they were instructed to clean it the rest of the year. Another problem resolved was the milling in the halls at activity per- iods. St u d e nts were prohibitied from going beyond the home economics room at activity period unless going to their locker or to visit a teacher. To raise money for the Christmas film, record dances were held after each home football game with an ad- mission of a quarter. Other funds were raised by the powder-puff football game. The film, " The S i 1 e nc e rs " , was provided for the student body on the day before Christmas vacation. In a d d i t i o n to the homecoming dances, a sock-hop was held in the gym with Michael Pearl as the disc jockey. For further e n te rt a i n m e nt and education, numerous lyceums were held for the student body. As their f i na 1 duty, the senior membere nominated Dennis McKin- ney and Chan Gates for the vice pres- idency. Speeches were given and e le c t i ons held Wednesday, May 12 with Dennis winning.

Four dances were held for special occasions, such as Christmas and V a le n t i ne ' s Day . Once a month each student dressed imaginatively on hippie and hat days. To develop pride in the school, locker checks were held every two weeks by stuco members. P anishment for untidy lockers was c le aning gum off the auditorium chairs. As the final activity, an Easter egg hunt was sponsored for the fourth and fifth grades. At the end of the year.

With five experienced and one novice debater, the squad set out to resolve: " That the development and allocation of scarce world resources should be controlled by an international organ- ization. " Midway in the season Luann Trummel and Jill Edwards alternately debated in Jenee Unruh ' s place, who underwent major surgery. At Greensburg, the four- man team — Nancy Cox, Connie Melkus, Dennis Mc Kinney, and Rex Anne Haltom — de f e at ed 14 teams. In the finals they lost to LaCrosse. Finishing with the only o v e r n i ght trip was the regional tou rna m e nt at Lakin. The above four-man team with alternates Jill and Luann took 4th with 11-9. Coach Michael Pearl stated that he felt the debate season was a suc- cess and his goals for forensics were to get as many entries qualified for state as possible. To achieve this goal five members competed at Larned, where three qualified for state. League tournament held at Pro- tection, March 2, qualified five more Entering the regional tournament at Garden City, March 20, three more qualified. Returning from the state compe- tition at Hays with I ' s were Connie Melkus — prose, and Rhonda Gates — prose and extemp.

I don ' t think that two sin- gle men living alone in a big eight- room apartment should have a clean- er house than my mother, " loudly proclaimed a disgusted Oscar Madison after fi nd i ng Felix Ungar again pur- suing his lust for cleanliness. Involved in the major roles of " The Odd Couple " were Dean Dillin- ger — Oscar and David C ase--Felix, portraying two entirely different char- acters sharing an apartment after marital difficulties forced them from their homes. Oscar, an untidy sports writer, and Felix, a fanatic for clean- liness, find that they cannot over- come their personality differences and Felix decides to leave. Also involved we re Dave Brass — Speed, Jim Jesseph — Murray, Dennis McKinney— Roy, Leon Rogers — Vin- nie, S t a c is Crowley — Gwendolyn Pigeon, and Emily Westmp — Cicily Pigeon. Directing the play was Michael Pearl and assisting him was Mona Kindsvater — student director. Weldon Wendt, Randy Uhl, Chan Gates and Vernon Hess were the production staff. At pre-curtain and intermission, entertainment was provided by the Eagle Jazz Ensemble directed by Wes Johnson. Also involved in production, the eight members of the Eagle staff worked many hours to c o m p 1 e te the yearbook. One of the two new membe rs, Sondra Wedel, and Connie Melkus — were awarded c e rti f i c a tes for Out- standing Page Design at the annual yearbook workshop held in Dodge City. Anew event for the staff was at- tending the Kansas Scholastic Press Association Regional Journalism Con- test in Wichita. S e c o nd places were awarded to Connie Melkus, in year- book copy writing, and Allen Rascoe, in photography.

For a year- long project, each member adopted a grandparent within the community. Having fewer members did not keep the organizat ion from sponsoring two parties for members. To spirit the elderly, Kayettes caroled at Pioneer Lodge and at sev- eral private homes during the Christ- mas season. A Chr i stm as party was held at the home of Patricia Brown-- sponsor and gifts were exchanged. On March 25, Kayettes sponsored a Spring Style Review featuring fash- ions from the Cameo, owned and operated by Billi Lousch. Modeling the garments were junior high and high school girls along with women of the community. Experience was gained by the FHA ' ers who participated in the hos- tessing and planning of the District K Fall Conference held October 30, 1975. To show their appreciation for the efforts and cooperation in this event, the e X e c u t i ve board gave a surprise Thanksgiving dinner for the members. Special guest at this occasion was Dick Wilkerson--principal. FHA was inspired by having the largest membership since the organi- zat ion was started at CHS in 1971.

According to Wesley Johnson — band instructor, " Overall it was a good year, e s p e c i a lly for solos and ensembles. " League festival was the first con- test entered. Two saxophone trio ' s received I ratings while the band re- ceived a II rating. Twelve people participated with solos achieving five I ' s, six ll ' s, and one III rating. At the Dodge City contest, ten solos received four I ' s and six IPs. Six ensembles entered obtaining three I ' s and three ll ' s. For the first time, the band pre- s e n t e d a concert of its own with the ensembles helping to fulfill the production. Size of the vocal music department reduced when the sixth grade separ- ated from the seventh and eighth grades and was placed in its own mu- sic class. Many high hopes were fulfilled at le agu e f e sti va 1 held at CHS. The mixed chorus earned a 1, girls chorus earnedal, and boys ensemble a 1+.

" This song often heard echoing down the halls after chorus rehearsal, was typ- ical of the abounding spirit expressed by 15 boys and 32 girls enrolled in chorus after the first groans of " There will be mixed chorus, " receded. Early in the year, participation increased when dancing girls was formed and entertained for the NHS talent show. Senior girls, having per- formed two years as a group, and ju- nior girls entertained for various com- munity clubs.

ATHLETICS Spirit Prevails During Season Win-loss re cord of the Eagles would discourage anyone — the Eagles were anything but discouraged. En- thusiasm started at a high level and remained there throughout the season. The Eagles led on by Bob Mullen — coach were always a serious contender. With the fact that slightly under fifty percent of the boys in the school were out for football, spirit was high with everyone as well as the team. " 1 definitely gained a lot of ex- perience, " said Coach Mullen. With a young quarterback and Coach Mul- len ' s first y e a r of coaching after the Army, this could probably be said of the whole team. If gains from the season could be summed up, it would probably be put like this: Experience for the future was gained by the team and CHS, as a whole, learned how to take loss and keep spirit high.

At half-time as the Eagles regrouped to plan strategy for the sec- ond half of the game, Kathy Parcel, Sharon Uhl and Lynda Wagnon were driven to the field by their fathers to be escorted by Nathan King, Clint Lawless, andDuane Huck respect- ively. Following tradition from the first CHS crowning of Juanita Oiler and Harold Erne rson in 1936 as football queen and captain, the Pride of Cold- water marching band played the theme song, " The Way We Were, " as Kathy Parcel was pronounced queen and Nathan King was declared captain of the 1975 football homecoming. Assisting with the crowning, Me- lissa Booth and Kevin Mullen present- ed old-fashioned plaques to the queen and at tendants. Emily Westrup car- ried the queen ' s robe, Connie Melkus presented the customary red roses, and Leslie Turley carried the crown. Although high winds and the Eagles narrow loss of 7-8 to the Min- neola Wildcats dampened spirits, the band dance following was well at- tended by students and alumni.

Girls Add New Vigor Tennis season bounced into action withtennis girls in uniforms and a new coach. Since the CHS tennis team had not had tennis uniforms in recent years, it was a pleasant addition when Ardith Wilkerson — coach ordered red and w h i t e jumpsuits. Coach Wilker- son was also helpful in the techniques of serving and other tennis skills. Six top players, who attended league tennis tournament at Cimarron and re g i o nal tournament at Greens- burg, were Lynda Wagnon, Melanie Miller, Emily Westrup, Sondra Wed- el, Kathy Parcel, and Robyn Chad- wick. Although no one placed at either tourn a m ent, the girls gained invaluable competitive experience. Sky became the limit as the CHS basketball girls plunged into a frantic season. W i th their goals set high and utilizing long hours of p ract i ce, the girls diligently strived to reach those goals. David B. Case coached girls bas- ketball for the first time since he be- gan c o a c h i ng at Coldwater. In pre- vious years, he coached junior high, B-team boys, and was assistant coach for the A- team boys. Many hours of laborious practice was rewarded when the girls went to finals of the regional tournament. During league tournament, they were beaten out by F ow 1 e r on Wednesday night. However, in regionals they moved past Fowler to end their season with a loss to Bucklin, achieving a record for the season of 10-8. (I)TENNIS— FRONT: Liz Snyder, Nan- cy Cox, Robyn Chadwick.

" These words were often spoken at basketball games as scores would be tied during the last few minutes or seconds remaining in a game. Of the twenty-one games played, ten scores were within four points or less of each other with the Eagles clustering their efforts to win six of these games. Eagles began their season with a non-league game against the Sharon Cardinals. CHS team members set the pace for the rest of the season, scorewise, as the score was tied dur- ing the last few seconds of the game. On into the season went the Eagles sera pping their way to the league tournament where they met Fowler and lost the chance to continue fur- ther in the tournament. Regional tournament games carried the Eagles tiirough another close game against the Cardinals leaving the score tied at the end forcing both teams into an overtime where the Eagles polished off the Cardinals 64-62. Endeavoring to attain first in reg- ionals, the team fell short when they were defeated by the Fowler Goldbugs for the second time during the season. Although Coldwater received sec- ond place, they were entitled to par- ticipate in sub-state at Great Bend. Inspired by this achievement, fans, cheerleaders, and team members traveled to engage in a flustering game against Macksville on March 5. Eagles lead Macksville through the first half but fouls caused them to trail during the s e c ond h a 1 f . Yet, they closed the gap to make the final score 43-46.

Dance Tops BB Crowning January 23 was an unusually warm and balmy day but the warmth added to the excitement that it was home- coming. Pep club girls and Jeanette Peck--sponsor had worked diligently up to the last moment decorating the stage with the theme, " Reflections " . At 4:00 p.m. the varsity girls team stomped Southwestern Heights with a victory of 54-29. Later the B- team boys w e r e beaten 44-74. After the B game, the candidates and their escorts waited in center court to learn that the 1976 b a sk e tb all queen and captain were. . . Sharon Uhl and Mike Louthan. Queen Sharon received the bouquet or roses, crown, and kiss, and attendants, Lynda Wagnon and Connie Me Ikus accepted the traditional single red rose and a gift of l.D. bracelets inscribed with " Reflections " . Playing selections from " The Best of Bread, " the pep band accompanied the royalty as they returned to the throne. At half-time as the Eagles had a one point lead. Queen Sharon and her court were honored with a pompon routine by the cheerleaders. Deter- mined to win, the Eagles pulled through with a 53-49 victory. Following the homecoming vic- tories, stuco sponsored a disc jockey dance. A contest to choose the most talented dancers highlighted the dance, with Stasia Crowley and Mike Stout each winning an album.

Hosting Ulysses at Protection, the county team had several pins and de- cisions. After traveling to Hugoton for a dual meet, the squad was defeated by the Hugoton team. At Dodge City, the local team was matched with Dodge City High School B-team where Terry Masters succeeded in his bout. The wrestlers also participated in the Halstead Invitational tournament where none of the squad qualified for the finals. At Douglas, the team took part in regionaltoumament but did not qualify for state. Golf season began in the spring with club-toting golf e rs reporting to Charles Couchman ' s science room every evening after school. Dubing the school yard " Rolling Hills Golf Course, " practice took place during activity periods outside and in the science room when the weather was uncooperative. Placing high, the 4- man team re- ceived 1st in the Ashland meet. Steve Thompson and Sam Brass held several places as m e da li sts and the 2- man team placed 6th over all at state.

Pepsters Exert Red-Hot Energy Most of the new innovations in pep club were implemented by the cheer- leaders. During the summer, the B- team cheerleaders attended DCA Camp at Emporia. Previously, all cheerleaders attended the NCA Camp at the University of Oklahoma, Nor- man, which was again attended by the A-team. To help raise money for their camp fees, they sold fireworks, with the help of pep club members. On September 15, the cheerlead- ers, officers and s pon so r attended a DCA Spirit Clinic at Dodge City to help with their cheers, techniques, and organization. Bulls-eye pompons were purchased to replace fire -dam- aged ones. Stunts became an integral part of cheers along with new pom- pon routines. Before the first football game, a picnic was held to learn new cheers. Skits continued to provide entertain- ment, as did a taped interview con- sisting of cuts from various songs by Michael Pearl and several members, played over the intercom before the sub -state tournament. Before the fi- nals of the regional tournament, sev- eral pep club members decorated the boys locker room.

Kathy Parcel, Emily Westrup, and the mile relay team qualified for the state meet. Four second places including league, one third, and two fourth places were acquired by the team at the various meets. School records were obtained by Emily Westrup in the discus with a throw of 106 feet 5 1 2 inches, the mile relay team consisting of Mona Kindsvater, Brenda Bayne, Sharon Uhl, and Kathy Parcel with a time of 4:12:3 at the state meet, and by Sharon Uhl in the 110-yard hurdles with a time of 15.9 seconds. Commenting on th e team , Carl O ' Hair — coach stated, " We had more team balance (people in more events) than in any previous year. As a team, the girls worked harder than ever be- fore, which made my job much more fun, and made fora successful sea- son. " Emily was most improved from 1975 as she threw the discus 12 feet 3 inches farther than the previous year and was third in the state meet. The number of girls who were willing to try the 440 to make up a mile re- lay team was surprising to me, and at the same time, gratifying.

Threefold Tie Marks Season With only nine boys participating in track, little competiton could ' be acquired as a team. But by attending smaller m e ets, several boys placed. With an overall total of 48 points, Michael Martens scored highest fol- lowed by Lane Hackney with 32. From the first meet at Ashland, three 3rd places were brought home, Mi cha el Mart ens — javelin, Lane Hackney--low hurdles, and Willie Smith — 200-yard d ash. The Mullin- ville quadrangular provided another opportunity to compete and place. Michael Martens took 1st in the jave- lin and 2nd in long jump. First place in the low hurdles was awarded to Lane Hackney and 3rd in the 200- yard dash went to Mark Cashwell. Six other meets were attended including league at Meade and re- gional at Coldwater. " The best fo otb a 11 season in a long time, " Alfred Love — coach summed it up for the junior high foot- ball squad as they ended their season with a 4-3 record. On October 9, the Eagles returned victorious after defeating first ranked Greensburg. However, on the 16, they were upset 0-14 by Protection. A three-way tie resulted between these three for the league champion- ship play-off. Since Coldwater had never participated in the play-off before, they were allowed to do so. Also vying for the league title was Meade. Highlighting the game was a 50-yard touchdown by Corey Lawless. Joe Crowe scored the extra point on a reverse.

But as the season progressed, losses and h a rd sh i p s mounted. Ac- cording to Alfred Love — coach, " Spirit was hard to keep up consider- ing the record, but it was managed. " As the season came to an end, bright spots began to show. The girls B-team and the boys B-team began to improve as shown in the victories against Protection. League tourney involved the girls A-team and boys A-team. This was the first time girls teams participated in the tournament. Achievement was shown in the league tourney on both teams. The girls had a narrow loss to Minneola while the boys won their first game a g a i nst Cimarron but lost their second game to Greensburg.

With Effort, Boys Triumph Throughout the track season the juniorhigh boys team produced a strong record. With strength in both track and field events, the team placed f irst at the W a y n o k a meet, first at Coldwater Junior High trian- gular meet, third at Medicine Lodge, fourth at Bucklin, and first at Iroquios League track meet. Although 68 p e r cent of the sev- enth and eighth g r a d e r s, and 69 per cent of the sixth graders participated, the girk record was n o t as successful. The s uc c e ss fu 1 record also had side effects. According to Alfred Love--coach, " The winnings devel- oped school spirit. " Changes were ma de within the pep club structure. The point system used to select an outstanding member was voted out. Sixth Graders were eligible for pep club during football but not basketball season. Cheerleaders were helped in the spring and fall by the high school cheerleaders. This, combined with high attendance at each event, pro- vided the e 1 e m e n ts necessary for an enthusiastic group.

ACADEMICS Move Involves Better Offices Since more space was needed at the courthouse, the USD 300 office was forced to move. Temporary resi- dence was established at the previous Town and Country Floral. After the remodeling of the west half of the Farm Bureau building was completed, James Chadwick — superintendent and his secretaries moved into their per- manent location. Serving as board president for his first time was Weldon Tru m m e 1 as- sisted by three newly- elected mem- bers, Bonnie Brass, Barbara Deewall, and Gary Filson. This board faced many controversial issues throughout the year. Very few changes were made in the high school curriculum so that students could begin planning their schedule of classes for all four years. Jerome McCaslin--guidance began a research project on the standardized testing program. This project con- sisted of a district- wide evaluation of test results since the scores had been lower in the past few years than previously. However, the scores were comparable to the national average, confirming that the educational pro- cess was adequate. Throughout the year, Jerome Mc- Caslm attended several principal- counselor-freshmen visitation days at area colleges. In talking with fresh- men from CHS, he was able to deter- mine some of the areas students need more help in before attending college. In response to the students ' atti- tude and behavior at CHS, Dick Wil- kerson--principal c o m m e n ted " The best thing that happened to me this year was being associated with these kids. They had a super attitude and knew what they were here for. " To gain a better understanding of the naval academy and its need ' s and qualifications of students, Dick Wil- kerson and Jerome McCaslin, mem- bers of the Blue and Gold Naval Edu- cators Tour, visited the N a v a 1 Aca- demy at Annapolis. For each student at CHS, the day would not be complete without the familiar voice of Florence Cooper announcing, " Uhmmpph! May 1 have just a few a nno u nc e m e n ts. . . . " Political Stir Inclines Views Although most students were cur- rently excluded from all direct po- litical activity, preparation for future governmental involvement was begun for juniors and seniors in American History and American Government. Factual viewpoints were discussed en- couraging students ' opinion. World Geography, World History, and Prob le ms of Democracy classes were inhanced with r e 1 a t i v e film strips from Bob Mullen ' s experiences in Germany. Also taught by Coach Mullen, were physical education classes. Under Title IX, boys and girls were enrolled in gym together. Concern for energy conservation and environmental protection was expressed in the science department by participation in c o nt ro 11 i n g an energy-environment simulator. Dem- onstrating fu e 1 consumption propor- tionally to pollution, the simulator was operated by two Kansas State Uni- versity graduates. Math students benefited from Da- vid B. Case ' s training during the sum- mer in computer technology. New math areas were covered in attending lectures at Dodge City by Math FV class. Areas for involvement in Vocal Music were broadened with the or- ganization of Dancing Girls. Many group performances throughout the year included tho se of Senior Girls, Junior Girls, Jazz Choir and a special presentation of CHS mixed chorus combined with Protection mixed cho- rus in the county wide Bicentennial celebration. In addition to concerts and con- tests, instrumental music contributed to school spirit providing pep music during football and basketball seasons.

First-hand experience was gained from nursing hospital and resthome patients. Unique art activities abounded under the direction of a new teacher, Jean Dielman. Going on trips to art galleries, sketching n a tu r al settings about town and painting fire hydrants as historical figures proved ability while stirring interest. Taking advantage of family care training, four girls and eight boys en- rolled in family living. Discussing the aspectsof family life, the class plann- ed budgets, weddings, and divorces. To better enable stud e nts for a future in construction a nd general home care, Joe S p e n c e instructed woodworking, metals, power and energy, world of construction, and home maintenance. Speech clinician, Ann Brown, was available for improving speaking abil- ity. Classes for parents of pre-school childrenwere given to cultivate future success in communicating. Serving with Ki-Com Coop, Ber- nard Marcotte aided pupils by plann- ing with personnel for the needs of children. Historical sights were visited to correlate happenings in Kansas to the Bicentennial as a part of American history class forK-Com Level 111 G fV.

Electronic c a 1 c ulators, caniageless t ' pewriters and other up-to-date equipment proved advantageous for future office careers. With many activities vying for time, fifth hour language arts period was used to produce THE ODD COUP- LE. THE CAT PRINCESS was enacted for the grade school by sixth hour. Speech class, taught by Mike Pearl, investigated parliamentary procedure and held debates as a part of public decision making. Many high school students nation- wide cannot read and comprehend material properly, as also evidenced in C H S . To slow the progression of illiterates, a final nine weeks reading course was established in second hour English taught by Carolyn Kolesar. In addition to Spanish I Gil, Thom- as Le Ma rr began conducting studies for seventh grade language arts and eighth grade introductory Spanish. New text books stressing reading and grammar were purchased to gain a basis of language understanding. In order to maintain a conducive study climate, Henrietta Rhodes -- librarian, and Lorraine Thompson-- aide, supervised morning and after- noon library shifts to correspond vith their responsibilities in the Protec- tion and Coldwater Grade School li- braries. New research materials were Groves Dictionary of Music, Encyclo- pedia Brittanica and a standing globe. (l)For reference of overdue ma- terials, L o rr aine Thompson prepares to list daily fines.

Changes Add New Potential Changes were made in the junior high to provide a more well-rounded education. A nine-week first aid course was offered to seventh graders, taught by Alfred Love. Spanish was a new eighth grade c o u rse taught by Thomas LeMarr. Sixth graders were separated from seventh and eighth graders in vocal and P.E. which light- ened the class load in these classes from40to 25 students. These changes combined with new books and other materials hopefully made education easier and more complete. With the junior high building de- teriorating with age, the school board appointed a committee to study the problem and what could be done. The options considered were: (1) build a new building, (2) bus junior high stu- dents to Wilmore ' s vacant school, (3) move seventh and eighth grade stu- dents into high school, (4) renovate, or (5) do nothing. The committee ' s recommendation was renovation on a continuous scale that would not require a bond issue. Renovation was begun as new fire retardant doors were in- stalled throughout the building. (1) Eddie Brown assists seventh graders in understanding the rules of science. (2) Phyllis Haltom--ins tru c t or and Marcia Clark — aide, prepare a banner to fly at the Coldwater Special Olym- pics. (3)Taking care of everyday busi- ness, Jim Gales--grade principal con- fers with Edith Daily--secretary about forthcoming events. (4) Attempting to provide greater understanding for English students, Carole Byram uses her planning time to prepare the class lesson. Aides Assist Grade Faculty Although no changes were made in the grade school faculty, several innovations were instituted in the area of education. First graders found the addition of a 1 ibr a ry to house their books. To create interest, the library was con- structed in the form of a tree house. Providing access to the tree house was a four-stepped ladder, while two large windows allowed the teacher to observe the students. Students were allowed to spend free time reading in the tree house, but only three were granted permission inside at onetime. No one was permitted in the tree house unless there was teacher super- vision in the room; this may contri- bute to the fact that no student has yet fallen. After a few months trial, Libby Stewart r e m a rk e d, " The stu- dents seem more relaxed and eager to read. " Teacher ' s aides headed the list of new additions. Remedial reading re - ceived the help of G a il Boisseau, as the first grade had the return of Becky Sherman for her second year. Both are graduates of Coldwater High School and Gail is a graduate of Fort Hays Kansas State College. Grade school teachers, along with the teacher ' s aides, tried to insure each student of his or her full educa- tional value.

Upon first entering the school building in late August, the attention of the faculty and students was focused on the newly waxed floors and clean walls. Attempting to maintain the upkeep of the building, many hours were spent b e fo re and a ft e r school hours and on weekends. Such a job was made easier when students coop- erated by putting papers in the trash can. Aiding Earl Hubbard in the high school building were Harold Whiting and Marie ne Fancher. In the grade building, Sherri Bratcher assistedClar- ence Bardot and Erma Downing. Arriving early each morning, Eth- el Ricker started the preparations for the nutritious meal to be served at 11:20 a.m. WilmaCashwelland Clara Loutham arrived later in the morning. During the noon hour, the cooks were aided by Greg Schultz in the dish washing area. Although some students complained about the school lunches, it w as an ironical situation to see the number of s tu d e n ts reprimanded for running to the lunch line. Besides pre- paring school meals, the cooks also made sack lunches for athletes when out-of-town games were played and they graciously helped students pre- pare chili and sloppy joes for basket- ball concessions. Bus drivers were kept busy, as us- ual, transporting students to various games, music contests, and organiza- tional functions, as well as taking stu- dents to school each morning and re- turning them home each afternoon. After twenty- five years of bussing stu- dents, Don Booth retired from active duty. ( 1 ) Working with a sense of humor, Wilma Cashwell, Ethel Ricker, and Clara Louthan finish tedious tasks quickly.

Doctor Meets Various Crises Various crises greeted the new doctor, Dr. Ha s an Choudhury, when he arrived in November. Placing highest on the list was the need for a doctor in the community. This need was emphasized when Clair Parcel was gored by a bull in December and required extensive vein surgery. An- other crisis occurred when Wally My- ers experienced a compound leg frac- ture while playing a game in gym class. From an inspection of the Com- anche county jail, the Department of Corrections determined the jail con- tained many fire hazards and did not provide 24-hour supervision of in- mates. At one time it was thought that Comanche county would be re- quired to build a new structure when the bill went into effect July 1, how- ever, a c c o rdi ng to Phil Hackney — sheriff, the present jail can be reno- vated to comply with all State regu- lations. When Kansas legislature required counties and cities to reform their garbage standards, Comanche county decided upon a sanitary landfill to be used by county inhabitants. Another option to the landfillwas a salvage system, however, because of cost factors, the salvage was considered to be unfeasible. (1) To adorn Coldwater with Christ- mas lights and decorations. Gene Baker and Charles Lenertz find it nec- essary to use a tractor to reach those high places. (2) By inspection of the Kansas Department of Corrections, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and the State Fire Marshall, the jail of Comanche county was determined as being be- low safety re gu la t i o ns.

Sharon Hecht received the first place prize of $75. (4) By using the sanitary landfill system, garbage must be picked up i ns t e a d of being burned. (6) Answering Coldwater ' s urg e nt need for a doctor. Dr. Hasan Choudhury and his wife, Robin, be- gin their general practice in the community. ;.--«■ V -. - •: ' isiiiia) Women Shape ERA Crusades Women played their part in mak- ing headlines during the bicentennial year, and th e re fo re shaped history . Patty Hearst, who was kidnapped in 1974 by the Symbionese Liberation Army, created the biggest crime top- ic. After she was taken into custody, the heiress went into t ri a 1 to declare that she was brainwashed by the SLA and thus was not guilty of the bank robbery charges set before her. Al- though Patty Hearst and her attorney, F. Lee Bailey, expected a verdict of not guilty, the jury submitted a ver- dict of guilty ' which could imprison the heiress for at least 35 years. Another woman in the news, Lyn- ette Alice (Squeaky) Fromme, a memiber of the Manson family, was the first woman to attempt to assassi- nate a President of the United States. She was also the first person to be convicted under the 1965 law which made an assassination of a president — successful or not — a federal crime. During December, President Ford made the headlines by signing a bill to provide up to $2.3 billion in fed- eral loans to help bankrupt New York City. He also visited with Chinese Communist party Chairman Mao Tse- tung in Peking. In 1972, Nixon made the first trip to China which opened the Iron Curtain. Du r ing February, Nixon, as a citizen, was asked to return to Chi- na by the Chinese to commemorate his first trip four years ago.

Greg Schultz Jim Shelton Absent: Eddie West As newcomers into CHS, the freshmen class had to adjust to the in- volve d and often hectic schedule of high school. They adapted quickly by p a rt i c i p ating in sports, music, and carrying out responsibilities like clean- ing the lounge. To discourage future problems, executive board, class members, and sponsors agreed that class dues would be paid each year towards the senior class trip. Anyone deciding their sen- ior year to attend the trip must pay all back fines. Extra money was raised by con- cessions at football and basketball games. During the league tournament, a one night concession brought in $308.86. At the close of school, a roller skating, bowling, p i n ball, and pizza party at Alva, Oklahoma, rewarded the freshmen for a y e a r nearly com- pleted.

Boxing champion, Dean Dillinger was challenged by Dennis McKinney where the twenty-five cent admission was used as a class money-ma king activity.

Conces- sions, including two tournaments, also gave the class an opportunity to add to their funds. " In the Land of Cotton " was cho- sen as the theme of the banquet and prom, for which they spent most of their time planning. Decorations for the prom included a large porch designed to look like the front of a Southern mansion, hanging plants, murals, depicting plantations, a slave quarters, and an illuminated fountain. Food, prepared by the junior class mothers for the banquet, included smoked turkey, twice-baked potatoes, com, fresh fruit, rolls, and a cherry dessert. Highlighting the banquet were the servers dressed as slaves. Guests were greeted at the door and later entertained by them. Ente rt a inment for the prom was provided by Flagg from Goddard, Kansas.

" , " Hey, we ' re from Kansas, read about us in the Post, " " Are we lost? " These were only a few of the comments heard from sixteen excited seniors and their sponsors-- Li la Trummel and Michael Pearl — after arriving in Washington, D.C. Culminating many hours of window washing, a car wash, a garage sale, and si x concessions, the trip lived up to everyone ' s expectations. Leaving Coldwater on a school bus for Wichita, the group then flew on to Washington. Some of the more interesting sights were the Smithsonian, Mount Vernon, National Zoo, Ford ' s Theatre, K e n n e dy C e nt e r--where Marcel Marceau appeared — the Capi- tol, and a night cruise, where a group witnessed a sinking boat and a suicide attempt. The White House was also visited, but, due to long lines and a hurried tour, the group was not im- pressed. Highlighting the trip was coverage of it by a WASHINGTON POST report- er, Joe Mastrangelo. After publica- tion, the three-page article appeared in several other papers. For their dress night, the group elected to go to Gusti ' s, an Italian restaurant. In appreciation for their help, they also invited Mr. and Mrs. Mastrangelo and Mr. Clyde Tylor, an alumnus of Coldwater High School who helped with transportation. Climaxing the year, commence- ment exercises took place May 21 in the gymnasium. After two years of good weather for graduation on the football field, plans for the cere- monies to be held the re again had to be changed at the last minute due to rain. iENlORSSENIORSSENIOR Samuel James Brass Patti Jo Bratcher Nancy Kay Cox Rex Anne Haltom Duane L.

Thus, the pages of news events that pertain to the na- tion and the community will be remindful of the bicentennial year. In connection to the nation ' s birth- day, we have printed the birthdays of the students and personnel on the front endsheet while the back end- sheet furnishes a calendar record of events that occurred during the 1975-76 school year. First of all, grateful thanks goes to Keith Melkus — advisor who worked many long and hard hours to make this book possible. We want to thank Michael Pearl for the use of his camera and assistance, and also THE WESTERN STAR for the use of their pictures. Last but not least, thanks goes to the staff and photog- raphers for spending much of their time to provide you, the students, with this yearbook. The ' 76 Eagle.
