This means they have to wear the safety equipment almost constantly. This equipment is worn to protect the eyes and face from brilliance of the flying sparks. In this core area the students get their experience by handling many types of metals and welding equipment. There are different kinds of welds such as making beads and weaves and lap welding. Some of the metals that they use are fairly common such as copper, sheet metal and others. Welding metals together is not all they do. They also cut metal. This is done with a cutting torch after the metal is cut then they may weld it together using one of the many methods. Lam-tau Vang puts his welding to the test. Harold Mishmash demonstrates welding to Kurt Johnson. Lam-tau Vang, Herm Lovan Wath, and David Weis work. 74 You’ve got to be joking.

Simulators are used to provide safe training in emergency proce¬ dures. Eldon Peterson Students receive simulator instructions. Math majors Most students would not readily admit that math is one of their favorite subjects, but they would admit that it can help in future job opportunities. The Algebra I and Algebra II course basically teach the use of formulas to solve x and y equations. Geometry is used to construct bisect angles, quadrilaterals, parallelograms, and circles. Trigonometry, also known as College Math, is the second phase of Algebra II. This goes deeper into the formulas and solutions to equations. The final course offered is the calculus, invented by Issac New¬ ton. Calculus was created to help Newton formulate his graviation theories, since the math available at the time was not advanced enough. Richard Clark Students study hard in math class. Galen Johnson 78 Vera Kemp Grammar made perfect Jay Laughman Peggy Dierzen watches class Tech s English classes range from classes to pre¬ pare the college bound student to teaching English as a tool for proper word usage and as a second lan¬ guage to foriegn students.

Students are offered such choices as swimming, golf, archery, and many more. A Joan Odekirk Gary Jotzke R.O.T.C. Tech’s R.O.T.C. program is set up to teach such things as leadership, psychology, military drill, public speak¬ ing, human relations, first aid, C.P.R. and even deaf sign language. Robert Mockenhaupt Chris Thompson Scientific minds Science courses teach such subjects as, biology, physics, chemistry, LPN science, indsutrial safety and photography. Students in this area learn the same things that many col¬ lege level students are learning. Students also help out with first aid at the State Fair and other events. They teach Red Cross Safety Courses and courses in C.P.R. Gary Cameron 80 Wilmer Hokanson Paul Gillespie Steve Koch Bud Mounts Governmental affairs Social studies classes offer a variety of requried courses as well as electives. Govern¬ ment and Economics are required courses for seniors. American history and world history are also required. But students may pick Fam¬ ily Relations, Law Enforce¬ ment, Values Today, and Geography. Eleanor VanDyck Patricia Gants Music to the ear Because of the core area schedule, it is hard to place students in the band period. Mr. Wilson arranges individual times and practices with a partial group. Sometimes, the band plays music which is altered to fit the instruments available. The band marches at games and have two concerts during the school year. 81 Behind the lunchroom counter Jo Davis prepares sandwiches. Estella Constble cooks up a storm.

The Techniques drill team has only been in existence since this last school year. They have performed at basketball games, and hope to appear in some parades in the spring. A bake sale was held to raise money for the group. Money leftover from a previous drill team group (Techniques - ’77) was used to buy new uniforms. All of the girls are required to buy their own marching boots and tassles. Mrs. Ruth Ostwin- kle is the sponsor of the group. Mr. Jay Laugh- man helps coach. New steppers march at Tech Looking for a new routine? 87 LaRay King. President Sue Myers. Vice President Being president of a student union is no easy task. It requires a lot of time and effort. Under LaRay’s direction, the union has organized dances, a carni¬ val, a car wash, and other activities during the ’78- ’79 school year. LaRay is also on the Tech tennis team, the girls’ swim team, and manages the boys’ swim team. Next to Mr. Blackman. Sue wasoneof the biggest pushers of the SAT sales. She has also been the co¬ ordinator of many of the school activities. Sue is a member of the new Techniques drill team, a Tech guide, and a member of the Teacher Corps. Bring order into the union The Student Union has been very active this year. Some of the activities the union sponsored included Carnival Day. Crazy Day. a fashion show, a penny week to raise money for the school Christ¬ mas tree. Dress Up Day, the Homecoming car cara¬ van. several dances, and the Homecoming Festivities. Towards the end of the second semes¬ ter. they sponsored a Talent show, a special fund Faiser, and a candy sale to raise money for the Union. Dina Lindquist. Special Committees Dina is the one to see when you want to start a new project to raise money or just have a good time at an assembly. She coordinates the events that go on and forms a committee to get the job done. Dina is a member of the Senior Executive board, was a Sophomore and Varsity cheerleader, and is also a member of the Techniques. 88 Lisa Gilbert, Secretary Angela Woody, Treasurer Lisa’s job as secretay requires her to be very good at shorthand. Taking notes during a Student Union meeting isn’t exactly easy, especially when there are 30 people talking at the same time, but Lisa does it very well. Lisa seems to have very little free time for herself. She is in ROTC, is a Tech Guide, and is a singer for a group outside of school Angie’s the one that handles the money that comes into the Student Union. The money that the union raises is used to buy supplies for Tech stu¬ dents, provide funds for student activities, and pur¬ chase materials for the school. Angie also holds another important position. She is the president of the Tech High chapter of DECA, the Distributive Education Clubs of America. She is also a Varsity Cheerleader. Lisa Lint, Special Committees Lisa, along with Dina, helps to get the special committees set up so that things get moving. They are the backbone of all the Student Union’s activity. 89 Assistants with a purpose Each year some of Tech’s students elect to work in the office during their free periods to help the office staff. Many of their duties seem unimpor¬ tant to most people, but as Marjorie Wakefield said, “the office couldn ' t run without these people and the passes they run, the mail they file in teachers boxes, the envelopes they address and all those other important jobs they do. Tech’s nurse, Marjorie Mally, had an excellent group of helpers this year. The girls kept records of students coming in, ran errands, helped with supplies, answered the phone, and performed many other odd jobs. (Left row one) Kim Kier, Carol Pasholk, Sandy Lawson.

The copy headlines asks questions that any high school student might ask about the school. Chris Lynch was editor of this year’s yearbook. Vicki Rooney designed the cover. With a herd of photographers on the staff, the yearbook has plenty of pictures — maybe not the right quality or what was wanted every time — but lots of pictures. On yes, the staff took up-to-date pictures of the faculty — they don’t look so young any more. Hope you enjoy the book. (Above) A joke put on by the photographers.

Guidance at Tech Many visitors first view of Tech has been made possible through the organ¬ ization called the Tech Guides. Gudies act as Tech’s hosts to ele¬ mentary and junior high students, plus adults that would like to get a better look at what Tech has to offer. This group of young men and women take visitors on tours around the school building, explaining the various classes and core area functions. Chances are that you as a student at Des Moines Tech took part in a tour while in junior high or elementary school. Tammy Phillips leads the way.

This organizatin times the swimmers when at swimming meets to the nearest one hundreth of a second accurately. Other responsibilities include running errands before swimming meets, giving moral support to the swimmers both before and after the events. 95 Future Farmers The Des Moines Chapter of the Future Farmers of America is located at Tech and is one of the only large city chapters in Iowa. The F.F.A. spnosors many events throughout the year including judging contests. The Des Moines Tech Chapter participated in about thirty five events all over the state from Ida Grove to Waterloo, in contests against other chapters. Des Moines did very well and in one area they won first place in state competition. The chapter also showed livestock at three fairs across Iowa. Other activities included sponsoring a wool show, raising a variety of animals from bees to chickens to a three hundred and fifty pound sow with eleven piglets. The chapter is involved in many more events all year long and gives its members knowledge and skill.

Students work as reporters, photo¬ graphers. managers, and editors to gain basic knowledge of how a paper is put into publication. They go through the basic steps of journalism, collecting, writing, editing, and publishing the news. Positions on the paper are changed each semester so that every student in journal¬ ism is able to learn what each job requires. The course is required by some core areas such as Art and Radio and T.V. but is also offered as an elective. How’s this for a news brief?

Tech has built one house a year since 1970. House 7 at 1130Twelfth was completed in April 1978 after being started last year. The house should sell for $48-49,000. Tech house 8 was started, after the carpentry students finished their work on 7, in October, 1978. It is located at 1136 Twelfth and is nearly completed. The house will be sold next year. The Des Moines Public School District makes several thousand dol¬ lars a year on the houses. The money goes into the general fund for all the schools. Carpentry is not the only core area that works on the house. Drafting, Cabinet Making, Painting and Decorating, Refrigeration and Air Con¬ ditioning, Electricity, Sheet Metal, and Agri Business also do some of the work on the house.

The Official Unevolved Student Association is a newly formed group tht has been added to Tech’s already long list of small extra-curricular organizations. This new group has surprisin gly surpassed the number of members in any one of the groups or clubs at Tech. The group membership is believed to be between 800 to 1200 student and the number keeps rising. Meetings were held throughout the year and many activities took place to keep the members busy. Some of the activities that the group has been credited for were, No Spirit Day, Uncommited to a Tech Club or Sport Year, and No Cheering at the Tech Games. Sponsors of the group believe that the club will never decrease in size because of the high student interest in what the club stands for. Meeting with the executives. 113 The president in charge.

Tech upsets Valley by Copeland Francis Tech’s varsity football team upset the Valley Tigers 21-7 in the Metro October 6 at Williams. The Tigers scored first in the second quarter which made the score 7-0. However, the Engineer half¬ back Orlando Mayes scored from six yards out, changing the score to 7-6. Tech’s extra point was blocked. The Engineers were behind in the third quarter 7-6 until outside linebacker Jerry Jenkins recovered a Tiger fumble. Tech was unable to move the ball because of an illegal 141 procedure penalty. The ball was moved back to the Tiger 40-yard line, but quarterback Bryan Smith un¬ leashed a 40-yard field goal on fourth down and about 15 yards to go for the first down. That put Tech ahead 9-7. Four plays after the kickoff. Tech’s Copeland Francis in¬ tercepted Chris Crawford’s pass and the Engineers went 39 yards in ten plays. Smith fired a screen pass to Frank Irwin who ran over two defenders in route to a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Engineers were in command after that. Action at East.

The club started off with 4 straight wins. Coach Mel Green needed more experience with this team, but they had great potential. With the juniors gaining this year’s experience and a top sophomore team, the Tech basketball for next year should be improved. Kim Bell was lost to the squad after the East game because of a broken foot.

Looking pretty good, right? 162 Looking back at Tech Now that we are Seniors, And we look back on the past, At all the cherished memories. We could never reenact. From the first day as a Sophomore. All the times that we have had, Sometimes that we were happy, Sometimes that we were sad. We can’t forget the Tech games, Our best friend and our dates. Back then we were just carefree, As we tampered with our fate. Then there is that first time. When you think you’ve found the one, And you feel your heart is breaking, When you found out you are wrong. But now those times are almost through, As we go to class each day. And we have this feeling deep inside. That we wish that we could stay. The clock just keeps on ticking, It has and always will, And we wish that for a minute, The hands would just stand still. But we have had our time at Tech, So we turn and take a bow, Cause it is time for others, To take our places now. So to Tech High we say so long, Adios, Goodbye, Adieu, Thank you for the skills you’ve given, For us to start a new. 164 Carnival Day hits Tech as train pulls out The Senior Executive board and officers provided fun and games with a Carnival Day, March 23.
