The yearbook staff believed it did, it was the perfect theme. ln fact, the idea came from the students after survey- ing them on what they thought the year was about. And why not? Students came back from another year of summer's fun to the completion of the new wing. Rumors began to fly about school starting late because a deluge of wa- ter covered much of the Commons area after water was turned on either by mistake or intentionally. Many magazines and 12 new books were lost in the flooded area. But, never- theless, school started on time, Au- gust 25, with 234 students seeing the new addition for the first time. l MEMORABLE MOMENT: Receiving recogni- tion for her father, Helen Silverwood, a resi- dent of Ellsworth, shows her pride at the dedi- cation ofthe new Silverwood Wing. iPhoto by Marisa Ericsonj Opening After IO months of work, starting in October of 1985, the new addition of the high schol was finally complet- ed. The new wing consisted of 14 classrooms, a mechanical room and a kitchen storage area. Along with the handiness of the new classrooms was the parking lot in the back of the building. Finally, there was enough room for everybody to park close to the high school. On October 19 the Ellsworth-Kano- polis School District dedicated the new wing in memory of a former su- perintendent, O.J. Silverwood. His three children, Helen of Ellsworth, Jack of Pasadena, California, and Kermit of Tampa, Florida, were guests of honor receiving recognition for their father. m9141999 "We feel elated that this action was taken. My father was a strict disciplinarian, not only with his chil- dren, but with his students," Kermit Silverwood said. "l feel very proud that they would remember my father after all these years," said Helen Silverwood. "lt is a wonderful gesture, and it would be wonderful if he could have been here." After being crowded into mobile classrooms for several years, stu- dents and teachers were happy to finally have more space in the new Silverwood Wing. lt was an outra- geous beginning. - Pam Schmidt - Denise Woodbury WORKING HARD: Getting ready for school to begin, sophomore Christy Fleming stamps new books for the different classes as part of a Kayette project. iPhoto by Marisa Ericsonl OLITRAGEOLIS SIGN: To liven up the atmosphere, cheerleaders hang up hall signs.

Now everyone gathers together in the halls of the new wing and cafeteria to hear the latest news instead of students being scattered in different areas of the school. Most school spirit was also gener- ated in this area. Cheerleaders filled the halls and cafeteria with signs boosting the athletes' morale. With the building of the new wing, students and teachers felt the close- ness of being together. All of the teachers in the Silverwood Wing "loved it." Llntil the completion of 7'7ff5Z7fL 5 9 the new building, the teachers shared rooms with others. "This is the first time in five years that l've had a room of my very own," said Linda Sandell, English teacher. "I see more of the students and teachers in the halls between classes than l did when l was located in the Martin wing," said Dan Erbert, com- puters instructor. With most of the classes located in the new wing, many students felt too rushed between classes. With only four minutes to get from one class to 5 another, the students who needed to go from the science room in the Mar- tin wing to their lockers, then to the industrial arts or vo-ag classes had to rush to make it in time for class. Despite this minor inconvenience, students and teachers loved the closeness of their surroundings. Be- ing together promoted school spirit. - Denise Woodbury - Pam Schmidt 3 302119 uns, Opening 5 FASHION TRENDS: New styles of the school year are displayed by sophomore Kit Russell, freshman Danielle Maddux, senior Mike Erbert, junior Shelby Landon and sophomore Steve Shepherd. iPhoto by Trina Fullerl 6 Student Life Division 0611 ofzfonf Zwk ocated in Central Kansas the Ellsworth Kanopolls commu nltles are surrounded by roll ing pastures Even though it is con sidered small the town IS growing rapidly with all the new industrial ad vances What IS the reason for all this flur ry of activity'-l Basically the town IS coming to llfe because of the location of the new prison on a 35 acre site ln northwest Ellsworth Already several new businesses have opened since the construction of the Ellsworth Correctional Work Facility started Along with the extra activities ID WW the community high school students carried on the fashion trends ln the upbeat mood of the year Fluffy hair and the use of banana clips was the hot item for the girls The guys cut their hair shorter on the sides and longer In the back All types of jewelry were in Large wooden necklaces brooches ban gles addabeads big earrings and rings added pizazz to their clothes With all the accessories it wasn t hard to find the right clothes Some of the fashionable clothes were over alls 501 s long and big shirts and sweaters Suspenders long coats jean jackets cropped jeans boots 544 and flats With all the different styles students could just about wear any thing and they would fit ln Just as clothes had a definite look entertainment was also a top priority to the students Dragging main go ing to Chevles ln Salina to meet new people and dance and nights at the movies were the main activities for the weekends Although the trends were slow Corning to this community we were still fashionable Pam Schmidt Denise Woodbury Student Life Division L' 2 - ' f ll' , V , y V D Y v . , ' 1 Y . . , ' ' Y ' ' 1 1 ' Y - - Y ' .

As the half came to a close, the five nervous and hopeful candidates and their fathers walked on to the football field. The Ellsworth March- ing Band, led by director, Dennis Smith, played "Black Saddles" and "He Ain't Heavy" during the crown- ing ceremonies. As the Homecoming Queen, Tami Price, was announced, she was awarded the signed football and the queen's crown. "When l was announced queen, l was very surprised and very happy. It was a great honor l will never for- get," Price said. Attendants to the Queen were Cin- dy Adamek, Leah Bruce, Laura Ste- fek and Denise Woodbury. "It was a very special time for me, but it went too fast," Woodbury said. The escorts for the Queen candi- dates were Ron Davis, Todd Price, Nick Rodriguez, Shane Russell and Paul Snyder. Clouds of cold mist drifted over the crowd and football field as the Bearcats fought the Sacred Heart Knights. The Knights prevailed, how- ever, in a 33-7 victory. At the Queen's Assembly, before the parade, senior Kellie Headley sang "Greatest Love of All," by Whit- ney Houston. The Pops group sang "Perhaps Love" and "Love Theme from St. Elmo's Fire." The cheer- leaders performed by dancing to "Pri- vate Number" by the Jetts. - Pam Schmidt - Denise Woodbury HOMECOMING GROUP: Escorts.

Students could not help but get involved. Spirit Week started out as a hit on Monday as "Lee or Levis" day. Along with their Lees or Levis, students also wore boots and cowboy hats. Many showed their patriotism on Tuesday with "Born in the LI.S.A." day by wearing red, white and blue. Along with everything else, the seniors painted the streets on Tues- day. Almost everyone turned up be- cause it was a night for only seniors. "Nerd" day was on Wednesday. Clothes that clashed, taped glasses, short pants and big bow ties were some of the accessories worn. "lt Cdressing like a nerdj let my true personality shine through," said senior Mary Dolezal. "l had fun locating all the old clothes l wore," said senior Marisa Ericson. Thursday was "Surf's Llp" day. Everyone packed the halls wearing their jams and sunglasses. "Surf's Llp" day was neat because we got to wear shorts and sunglasses which we usually don't get to wear," senior Jeanette Wright said.

Coach Shane- lec gave a pep talk about the forth- coming game against Sacred Heart and threw a dummy Knight at the floor. After the bonfire, a pizza party ad- ded to the growing excitement. Stu- Co sold pizza, and SADD gave out pop. After eating, students took part in games such as swinging potatoes wrapped in panty hose and passing Lifesavers through toothpicks to the person next in line.

It was a good idea. Stu-Co did a good job doing it," said junior Debbie Davis. "I thought it Cbonfirel was better inside. People were closer together which promoted more school spirit," said junior Kim Hanson. As the week progressed, the stu- dent body let their excitement get out of hand. Due to the vandalizing of one of the class floats, none of the floats were allowed to be entered in if the Homecoming parade. Most of the students thought this was unfair, but it was the student body's punish- ment for letting their school spirit go too far. "I thought it was unfortunate that the students who worked so hard did not get to see their finished project in the parade," said senior Kevin Kohls. "I did not think it was very fair for a few people to ruin it for the rest. Hopefully next year we will be able to 'is Q- 2 have floats without others destroying them," said sophomore Shelly Wood- bury. Finally, the week ended with the traditional "Red and Black" day with everyone wearing red and black clothes. It was a fitting way to honor the excitement of the parade and the evening ahead. - Denise Woodbury - Pam Schmidt WHAT A NERD: Junior Mark Johnson models his bow necktie, taped glasses, and rolled up jeans for "Nerd Day". iPhoto by Kim Kohlsl TWO DOLLARS PLEASE: Paying his money to Trudy West, sophomore Westy Llrbanek is ready to enjoy his pizza and pop. iPhoto by Marisa Ericsonl Homecoming 13 To work or not to work: QW o I have to go to work? Must I work in order to have enough money for essential needs and begin saving for college? These are common questions heard almost every day. About a fourth of the high school students hold down part-time jobs . . . working in restaurants to grocery stores to retail stores to health care centers. The business which em- ployed the most was McAtee's Res- taurant with eight high school stu- dents working there. Boogaart's was next with five employed. Craft World, Novak's and the Good Sa- maritan Home all employed four high school students. A lot of students felt that their part-time jobs did not have anything to do with their future. It was just a way to have money and be around different people. On the other hand, some students said their jobs will help them with their future plans. "It has helped me get used to working with and waiting on people, and also helped me learn how to make change," said senior Kevin Kohls about his work at Sears Agen- cy. "I am going to be in business, and my jobs help me understand the dif- ferent ways to attract business," said freshman Tina Ploutz, who is em- ployed at Kyler's Kottage. Student Life With many students working be- tween four to 30 hours per week, this time cuts away from free time. Most said that it cut away from their home- work and school activities too. Oth- ers said having a job helped them because they were pushed to study more. "During the week, work affects my study habits the most because by the time I get off work I'm too tired to do real hard studying," said senior Terry Montoy who works at Novak's. "I get off at five, so it's just like having sports practice after school. If there are any school activities that I want to attend, I just take off work," junior Kim Hanson said about her job at the Ellsworth Medical Clinic. Many students have a job for the money. This way they can buy things they would not have or they save it for college. But others thought their jobs taught them re- sponsibility. Being around other peo- ple forced them to act with more ma- turity and show that they were re- sponsible. "The reason for me having a job is mainly for money, but it also teaches me a sense of responsibility," sopho- more Chris Munoz said about his work at Novak's. "Some of the things I do just re- quires a few tools so if I go to college POWER CLEANING: Steam-cleaning rugs is one of the tasks sophomore Mark Bennett completes in his work at Rohr's Interiors. iPhoto by Kim Kohlsl Wfq 69 I can work on my days off. Also it makes good money so I could use it as a career," said sophomore Mark Bennett. He is employed at Rohr's Interior. Despite all the bad points of a job, many students are glad they had a job. Besides showing them responsi- bility, their jobs give them spending money and might even help them out in the future. - Denise Woodbury ,qs tim' t WM -4' 5 I if S Else Q fit : I . :,:. ,.

Al- most everyone has a pet, whether it be a house pet such as a dog or cat or an outside favorite like a horse or a 4-H calf. And many learn to love their pets and look forward to seeing them at the end of the day. "l have a dog, six cats, and my current 4-H project fl consider them petsl my steer and my two heifers," junior Valerie Campbell said. "My cat was named Mischief be- cause she was wild when she was a kitten," said senior Gena Miles. "My mutt was named Macho," said senior Mark Johnston. "He was a tough little pup." The majority of students have mu- tual feelings about their pets. Freshman Nancy Choitz loves her two dogs very much and treats them like little kids. "l love my dog Fido because he is as old as l am," said senior Mary Dolezal. Pets can live inside or outside de- pending on what the owner likes and the size of the animal. "All of my animals are outside pets, but we let the dog and cats in every once in a while to spoil them," Campbell said. "My cows get fed in- side, but the rest of the time they stay outside." Pets have many special qualities which their owners appreciate. Some keep pets for friendship, love, to play or have fun with, like teaching them tricks. Freshman Chris Riddle's dog shakes hands and plays football. "My cat sleeps on its back with its feet in the air or his body is twisted around," said freshman Jason Kohls. No matter what kind of pet stu- dents had, many times they were like a best friend. - Pam Schmidt 'AFTER A TOUGH DAY AT sol-loom.,I CAN ALWAYS come Moms TD MY BEST FRIEND wrlo X ,:- . L.ovES MEF .I ......, Q T ,ff ' fl student Life 1 7 4 V I 18 066 Zack! Q W ith all the pressures that ath- letes face during practices and competition, why would anyone go out for a sport? One of the reasons why students go out for sports is to be around their classmates and to meet new people from other schools. Also many athletes face a lot of pressure while competing in various sports. Students try to compare themselves with others. ln doing this they can set their goals and try to achieve them. Athletes learn good sportsmanship from participating in competition. Along with winning, however, comes losing. Each athlete has to learn this in order to be a good competitor. 000441 r , . ff ' 325' rr-sis is . if' "Q T53 ' Eli? -Xlf iff 7 gl E " 'qi 'Af 'Q E2 25 351 :fr w - -- - -f , 1 .- - ' A if " ': ' , 1 av-:- -1 x' A-' ' A " " I- " K ' S U2 it ' M 1' ' rr ,iii - -- 2 A iw .ff 'iii 9 i' 'n 1' ia' ,- 5 item if rr t T. tit ty rg it-E is . if if 62331- irg fgggf ral 1, lgrvgx-,E 5 52- :I fi: in i rt?3rilr.liE i- it 119525-ri -its tg tt .Elf - ' if 3.525 i 15---wg! T- QQ? iff? The volleyball team lived with a lot of pressure following last year's State Champs. The girls made the trip to State but weren't able to come home with a victory. The girl's tennis team had an ex- ceptionally good year after tying for first in the league. Even though the football team didn't win a game, all the players hung in there to finish the season. Another team producing a good season were the wrestlers. They tied for first in the league championships, and several wrestlers went on to State. The boy's basketball team, using many underclassmen players, contin- ually improved their game and ended the season on a winning note. Despite losing their second game at sub-state, the girl's basketball team still had a good year tying for third place in the league. As weather turned warm, student athletes entered into spring sports. Joining track, tennis and golf teams gave students a chance to compete either as a team or individually. lt wasn't too hard to understand why so many went out for sports. Whether being a participant or a spectator, sports was a way to be a vital part of the school. - Pam Schmidt - Denise Woodbury Sports Division 19 Bearcats atsphy Mmm- Kf " ven though we had a losing season, I feel that it left me with a winner's attitude towards myself and my teammates," exclaimed senior Alan Morey. The Cats displayed a lot of character, despite the fact they were unable to come away with a victory. "I always had this feeling that we would win our next game. Unfortunately, we didn't win any games, but it was a great attribute that no- body quit," said senior Kerry Herlan. The season provided some close games and excit- ing moments. The Smoky Valley ballgame was a heart- breaker for the Cats early in LIMBRELLA TIME: While trying to stay dry, junior Laura Long and sen- ior Jeanette Wright record stats. fPhoto by Kimberly Kohlsj GOING DOWN: Senior Paul Snyder tries to gain yardage, but is stopped by a Sacred Heart Knight during the Homecoming game. iPhoto by Marisa Ericsonj 20 Football the season. With only three ticks left on the clock, Smoky Valley shattered the Cats' chances for a victory with a field goal, leaving the final score 23-21. "I believe that the team improved the most when we played Concordia," said Her- lan. "Although we lost 20-12 to Concordia, the team had their best effort of the year." Going O-9 was the farthest thing from the players' minds when entering the seasong however, as the sea- son progressed the thrill of competition and enthusiasm were just a few elements that carried the Cats through the season.

Ellsworth struggled in their first match against Min- neapolis but had no trouble blowing Southeast away in the finals. "I was scared," junior Debbie Davis said about the Minneapolis match when the team was down nine to 13. "l thought our season was going to end there, and I didn't want it to." Many of the girls felt they had the responsibility of de- fending last year's State Championship, and that the key to doing this would be working together as a team and having a winning re- cord. "Even though we didn't have the same players on our team as last year, it was our duty to make our team the best it could be. l felt our team was strong enough to , "Even though we didn 't have the same players on ,our team as last year, its was our duty tomake our team the best it could be." i t A s Jeanette Wright make it to State, and we did!" said senior setter Jean- ette Wright. Finding the right combina- tion of players to play, hav- ing a winning season, and qualifying for State competi- tion were some of the goals Coach Vaudine Maddux set for her team at the begin- ning of the season. Maddux said the girls ful- filled these goals by using "the 3 D's-desire, determina- tion, and discipline. The whole team worked hard this season. They had a lot to live up to. There were many times during the sea- son when it would have been easy to let up but they didn't, and it paid off in the end." The lady Bearcats fin- ished their season with a 24- ll record. ln addition to this winning record, the team fin- ished second in each of its regular season tournaments and third in the NCAA league. NCAA all league team honors went to Debbie Davis and Stephanie Friesen for making the first team while Shelby Landon was named to the second team, and Jeanette Wright received honorable mention.

"l wanted to prevent a loser's attitude of just going through the motions," he said. "The girls fulfilled these goals by keeping a good atti- tude, trying hard to improve each week during the sea- son, and by playing well in match play," Coach Davis said. With a team consisting of only five juniors and seniors, and the rest of the members being sophomores and fresh- men, the team got off to a smashing start by placing second in two of their first three meets. "Tying for first at Sterling where our number one dou- bles team, composed of two freshmen, Uoann Zeman and Melissa Zaveskyj went undefeated and winning sec- ond place at league were the high points of the season," Coach Davis said. Several players faced ob- stacles at the beginning of the year. "l was tense at the start of the season, so l didn't do as good as I could," said fresh- man Jewell Wheeler. "At the end, I had more confi- dence." Being sick at the begin- ning of the season was an obstacle for junior Amy Snook. "This made it hard to get back into the swing of practice and meets." Even though competing was an exciting part of the tennis season, many of the girls said that the moments before and after the away matches were the times they will never forget. Senior Trina Fuller espe- cially enjoyed the away meets. "They're always fun because everybody's so crazy," she said. "The trips on away meets were the best," said senior Marisa Ericson.

For many of the players this was their first varsity action. Coach Maddux said his goal at the beginning of the season was to be very com- petitive the second half of the season and to try to win the league title. The team did improve and while they didn't take first, they still tied for third. "I felt toward the end of the season we could play with just about anyone," Coach Maddux said. Many times throughout the season the team found themselves in the position where they must come from behind. This was the case in what Maddux called the most exciting game of the season against Fairfield in the first round of Sub-State. The Cats were down 28 to 16 at halftime but pulled to- gether in the second half to i ii ,aetitive beat Fairfield 56 to 54 in overtime.

At the end of the season, the Bearcats defeated 3rd ranked Belleville in overtime by two points, 60-58, and lost to the league champi- ons, the Beloit Trojans, by only one -point, 56-55, to show how much of a threat they were becoming by the season's end. League honors went to senior Paul Snyder who was named to . the NCAA all league second team.

The junior varsity boys finished their season with a I0 and 4 record while the girls' junior varsity team ended up with a I2-2 record. Both losses were to South- east. The freshmen boys played nine games and lost three while the freshmen girls played I0 games losing just three. Goals were set at the be- ginning of the year to have a winning season. "My goal was to play in every game and score in ev- ery game," said freshman Brian Pruitt. Freshman Danielle Mad- dux said her goals were ful- filled "by working hard all year and having a good atti- tude about things." Sophomore Vincent Rodri- guez set goals "to improve my fundamental skills along with my shooting skills. l also wanted to contribute to the team as much as possi- ble." Coach Ron Davis said his main goal was to survive Qby becoming tough competi- torsj. "At the beginning and throughout much of the sea- son, I was never sure who would be playing on the 'B' team. I usually didn't know from game to game, until the night before the game, who would be playing or what kind of strategy we could use." Opinions varied on what was the best game of the season. Ericsonl "ln the game against Min- neapolis I shot a half-court shot with three seconds left in the first half. It went in right before the buzzer rang. I couldn't believe it!" ex- claimed sophomore Dawn Pruitt. To sophomore Monte West the last game of the tournament when they won first place was the best game of the season.

After placing eighth at Re- gionals, sophomore Steve Shute, junior Paul Rodri- guez, and senior Pete Cis- neros advanced to State. With ten returning letter- men, Coach Charles Loven- stein said that the wrestlers were paying the price it took to be good all season long. That price finally paid off when the Cats got the chance to challenge the Be- loit Trojans for the league ti- tle. With one match left, the Cats were behind 24-30 and needed a pin by senior Pete Cisneros to clinch a part of the league title. Taking his time, Cisneros pinned his man in the third period with one second re- maining on the clock. Many of the wrestlers ex- perienced exciting moments during their season. Sophomore Mike Bunch said that the most exciting match of his season hap- pened when he pinned a guy in the second period during the championship meet. First year wrestler, senior Audie Poole, said that win- ning his first match ever by a pin proved to be the most exciting point of his season.

With the majority of the starting players being under- classmen, Jim Bach was the only returning senior. Add- ing an international touch were three foreign exchange students: Felix Girones, Pe- ter Sandelmann and Javier Placer. "Having a squad of this size," said Coach Davis, "the players were very in- spiring and competitive. Practices were more produc- tive and the players showed more improvement." When Ellsworth hosted their own Invitational, they came in a very close third behind Wamego and Russell. "Last year we finished dead last. This year we were into a race to the wire for first place," said Coach Da- vis. Even though tennis can be tense, the game had its amusing moments. "My first match during the varsity meet in Great Bend, as l was playing l was down 4 to O, and came back 4 to 3. My opponent's moth- er came running out on the court yelling at her son," said Sandelmann. Following this excitement, Sandel- mann lost the match. "I enjoyed playing on the J.V. squad because it's fun," said sophomore Mike Bunch. "It also gives me more practice to try to beat the varsity players." The Junior Varsity either won or placed very high in their meets.

Boys Tennis 36 Two compete mf sta te meet oing to the State Track meet was a fit- ting climax to the in- dividual performances of ju- nior Amber Weyer and sen- ior Mary Dolezal. Weyer finished 5th in the high jump while Dolezal took part in the discus. At the beginning of the track season, Dolezal said her goal was to go to State after just missing it last year by eight inches. Another exciting point of the season was taking fifth in the NCAA League Track meet. The Lady Bearcats got several outstanding per- formances to earn 63 points and a fifth place finish. Fourteen of those points came from the personal bests of sophomore Shelly Svaty who ran a 63.8 in the 400 meter to place second, and her sister Kim who threw the discus 102-2 to fin- ish third. Christy Fleming turned in a personal best 27.92 in the 200 to place third, and Am- ber Weyer cleared 5-2 in the high jump to win the league title. "I felt that a lot of the girls performed to their maxi- mum in a number of the meets," Coach Terry Mad- dux said. To many participants, track is different than any other sport because of the individual aspect. "You compete as an indi- vidual, and sometimes it's a lot more nerve wracking," said junior Kim Svaty, "be- cause you have a personal goal you want to meet." Those receiving letters for the '87 season were senior Mary Dolezal, juniors Kim Svaty, Amy Stone, Dana Miller, Amber Weyerg sopho- mores Christy Fleming, Shelly Svaty, Dawn Pruitt, freshmen Tasha McAtee and Tara Werner.

Ston- ebraker held Nick Rodriguez and Ron Davis out of the 3200-meter relay and ran them in the open 800 with Pete Marsh. Marsh and Da- vis finished second and third respectively while Rodriguez "Winning tljipeggileague meet in finished sixth. These 15 points proved to be very valuable.

One of the high points of the season occurred during the Ellsworth Invitational when sophomore Steve Shepherd shot a 79 to re- ceive a second place medal. Ellsworth placed seventh out of the 10 participating teams. "I tied for second place and had to play in a play off," said Shepherd. "l was pretty pumped up about the way l was playing." While competing at Be- loit, senior Craig Bush and Shepherd took third place in the two man with Shepherd shooting an 82 and Bush a 95. Regionals were held May 23 at the Ellsworth Golf Course. Placing fifth at this competition, the team did not advance anyone to State. Coach Lovenstein said the toughest part of coaching golf was teaching the rules to the players.

As one of five new classes, advanced speech was added to give interested students more experience in this area. Computer-aided drafting became a part of the drafting classes. ln this class projects could be completed in much less time. With the use of the new computer equipment, students have participated in designing a greenhouse, working with geometric shapes and electronic drawings. Computer literacy was changed from a nine week class to a semester class, so students could learn more about operating computers. To enlarge the foreign language of- ferings, Spanish lll and Spanish IV were added to the regular Spanish classes. Music theory was reinstated for those students who wanted to en- hance their knowledge. Three classes have changed from last year. Llnderclassmen could take study skills instead of just seniors. Seniors could be library aides for an- other year if they had taken the course as an underclassman. The name for general science was altered to Physical Science l, and Physical Science l became Physical Science ll to make the bookkeeping easier in the office. Most of the classes which ranged from math, science, language arts, social studies, business, vo-ag, phys- ical ed., fine-practical arts and spe- cial services were the same. Require- ments were needed for the basic classes, and the others were alterna- tives so students could take them if they wanted. Counselor Dennis Boepple said that the school provides many differ- ent classes for the students to help them get ready for the future and to learn the basics of life. "Education is what separates civilization from chaos," Boepple said. - Denise Woodbury - Pam Schmidt Academics Division 4 Intro. to JournalismALibrary ScienceAEngIishACollege Comp ASpeechACareersA Elkan N00 We x. l-IOOKED ON ith the rise of the unemploy- ment rate, it's getting harder to survive in the big world beyond high school.

The careers class stu- dents also learned how to write letters of application, resumes, and how to pre- pare for an interview. Another class in the Lan- guage Arts department that prepared students for the fu- ture was study skills S vo- cabulary, which helped stu- dents increase their vocabu- lary and improve their study habits. "l really didn't know the meaning of many words when l enrolled in study skills, and now l am able to get the meanings of words by using prefixes and suf- fixes," said Jeanette Wright, senior. "Study skills is a lot differ- ent than any other Language Arts class l've taken," said senior Ron Davis, Jr. The other Language Arts classes, although not specifi- cally preparing students for college, were enjoyed by all. "l needed the class credit, but when l enrolled in Eng- lish lll, l didn't realize it would be fun," said Mitzi Sneath, junior. "Our teacher makes it in- teresting with various pro- jects, and l'm interested in building my writing skills," said Kelly Monroe, junior.

Judy Fuller's Foods l classes, however, disagreed with that stereotype. Of the 19 people enrolled in the two classes, 14 were boys. Being a minority in a home economics class was a strange experience for the five girls, although the boys' antics were funny to watch. One day, while making fun- nel cakes, one of the boys put the powdered sugar that belonged on top of the cakes in the mix. Not only were the boys' escapades enjoyed, but their female classmates thought the class was good practice for the boys. "l think it's good that they learn to cook for them- selves," said Risa Belton, freshman. The fine arts department is led by basic art, a preres- quisite for all other art classes, except junior and senior arts and crafts. Many students enrolled in basic art in preparation for other art classes, and while taking the class the students gained a better appreciation for art. "lt fbasic arty has shown me that art isn't as easy as it looks," said Evelyn Lutz, sophomore. "lt fbasic artl teaches you most of all patience, and helps you with matching dif- ferent shades and details. l feel l will be ready for ad- vanced art next year and will be looking forward to it, " said Paul Atteberry.

Many students are now taking science classes in their freshman year. This has caused some question as to whether a freshman can handle the class load. "Science should be taken as a sophomore, because some classes you take as a freshman may help you later in science," said junior Amber Weyer. "lt fsciencei should be whenever you want, be- cause some may want to take a break from science, while some may want to learn as much as possible in their four years at EHS," said junior Marci Llrbanek. "Science should be taken as a freshman, because if the student only wants two credits of science then they can take them early, and in their junior and senior year they can worry about taking required classes," said ju- nior Kevin Shriner.

Many students took the classes, preparing them- selves for careers after high school. "The field of study that l plan to go into, business ac- counting, will be enhanced by my studies in Mrs. Reed's Caccountingl class," said Deneen Llrbanek, senior. "I plan to become a busi- ness person in the field of accounting because l have enjoyed working with the many different forms of ac- counting," said Andrea Mi- kulecky, senior. "lt faccountingj gives you a better idea of whether you want to take a business ma- jor in college," said Jim Bach, senior. Computer courses also helped students make a de- cision on what field to study. "l may be a geophysicist or a physicist and use differ- ent mathematical types of computer software to solve equations," said Mike Bunch, sophomore. Teachers were also look- ing to the future. "lt is our plan to start us- ing them fcomputersb in oth- er departments in the future - particularly where they lend themselves to the exist- ing curriculum," said Dan Erbert, computers teacher. "l intend to implement some computer accounting into next year's class, may- be in the second semester after we have covered the basic principles," said Janet Reed, business teacher. - Kim Hanson In , ,.r -flows, ' fr' ' A .gy vt-W , W 3 Y f V- , V. -u, M., 1 , fl- + 50 Math 1 Business Algebra A Consumer Math A Pre-Algebra A "lt Caccountingj gives you a better idea of whether you want to take a busi- ness major in col- lege." - Jim Bach ON YOUR MARK: Typing teacher Janet Reed sets the clock for timed 1 typing drills, iPhoto by Pete Cisnerosj EQLIATION TIME: Sophomores Valerie Borgstader and Mike Caddell listen to Mr. Erbert's discussion in pre-algebra. iPhoto by Mike Erbertj Xe e . we YP " RISKY BUSINESS: Freshman Tina Ploutz calculates a figure during general business class. iPhoto by Kevin Shrinerj M M ' - . . --'ff-""" W-WM M-v" ': !'??,Q'1:w1wMf?' ,, W ie X' .,eo"W 'Q rfb i A Math, Business 51 Waam., K may , MN' A- - . f, uc A Health and P.E.

BOWLING!! This year, students in Gail Shanelec's health and physical educa' tion classes studied the sport of bowling with "hands on" experience at the Coach and Four Bowling Alley, which is co-owned by Shanelec. This activity was chosen to be the favorite ac- tivity of students enrolled in the class, most of whom are freshmen. Other activities the class participated in were touch football, lifting weights and tennis. Although health and phys- ical education is a required course, many students en- joyed taking it because of the physical benefits. 52 Physical Education fVo-Ag "I feel it has kept me physically fit while l have taken it," said Candy Hilde- brandt, freshman. "lt really didn't help me physically because l stayed in sports all year long," said Tasha McAtee, freshman. "lt kept me in shape after volleyball," said Deanna Bobbett, freshman. The vocational agricul- ture department included Vo-Ag l-lV, shop and power mechanics. This was the last year classes in this department could be referred to as Vo- Ag. Because of a class con- tent change, the official name will be the agriculture science department, and the class names will be changed to crop and soil science and animal science beginning with the 1987-88 school year. - Kim Hanson E.

To qualify for this award a student had to be in the upper one-third of their class in grade point average, they must have done superior work in some phase of journalism, they must have been recom- mended by the supervisor of their publication, and they must have been approved by the secretary-treasurer of the society. The "I Dare You Award" was given to juniors Scott Mullen and Kim Svaty, after being selected by a faculty committee which was ap- pointed by Principal Charles Bray. The winners received the book "I Dare You" and a certificate. Each year the American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary sponsors the Kan- sas Girl's and Boy's State. The delegates were chosen from a list of Ellsworth High juniors who have maintained a "B" average. It was held in June. An award for sophomores was the Hugh O'Brien Award, which is sponsored by actor Hugh O'Brien.

"Okay we're ready to vote for president." "What time does the party start tonight?" "Wasn't that a fun trip?" Such questions are raised con- stantly in the different activities and organizations. Starting as freshmen, most stu- dents join a group or club. lt's a good way to meet upperclassmen and be with friends. Throughout their high 'school years, the majority continued to maintain group membership. Belonging to groups and clubs can be very time-consuming. The meet- ings usually take place before school and sometimes in the evening. Along with all the time, however, activities and organizations always tend to be fun. More than half the groups or clubs sponsor dances for the whole student body. Before each dance, the club prepares and deco- rates for the dance and then cleans up afterwards. Every club or group has a special event some time during the year. There are formal and informal ban- quets for students who are in specific groups. And the long-awaited Prom is a special time for all juniors and sen- iors. When groups have their own par- ties and trips, excitement and fun are abundant. Of course in order to take trips or have parties, the groups al- ways had to raise money. By working in concession stands or selling pro- ducts, groups were able to have their fun. By the end of the school year, dif- ferent students began to assume roles and challenges for next year as leadership positions changed. Yes, participating in activities took lots of time. But it was time well spent because those extra hours meant additional learning, caring for others, and just being at times, outra- geous. - Denise Woodbury - Pam Schmidt Activities 8 Organizations ELKAN ROYALTY.

The evening con- sisted of eating hotdogs and playing volleyball for enter- tainment. On May 7 the Athletic Banquet ended the year for the group. The speaker was Merle 'Bones' Nay, Director for the Kansas Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The talk centered on honesty, togeth- erness and thanks. At the Athletic Banquet, the E-Club scholarship was awarded to seniors Mary Do- lezal and Nick Rodriguez in the amount of 5100. E-Club sponsors were Da- vid Stonebraker and Jerry Marsh. FCA is an organiation for Christian athletes. Fifty-four were involved in the group this year. Meetings were usually held every Wednesday at dif- ferent athletes' homes. The group's Christmas party was held in December at senior Deneen Llrbanek's home. "FCA gave me the chance to be with many of my friends. We all shared a com- mon interest - sports," E-CLUB MEMBERS.

Being a dedicated cheer- leader took a lot of time. After making cheerleader, a cheerleader was one all year beginning in the summer and through weekly prac- tices. "Really to be good at cheerleading is always on one's mind, and a lot of prac- tice is done on one's own time by herself," said senior Jennifer Lovenstein. Cheerleading camp at Bar- ton County Community Col- lege June 16 proved to be beneficial. Several new cheers, chants, and routines were learned. "Cheerleading camp lets you find out what cheerlead- ing really means. lt really fires you up for your upcom- ing year," Lovenstein said. The cheerleaders spent their summer evenings prac- ticing new cheers and chants learned from camp. Also time was spent prepar- ing for the dance routine which was performed at the Cowtown Talent Show. They danced to the popular tune "Private Number" by the Jetts. Practices during the sum- mer were held at the Preisker Park usually for one hour on every Tuesday and Thursday evenings. One of the main goals for cheerleading was squad uni- ty. "I found out that for a cheerleading squad to be good and enjoy themselves, they must get along," junior Mitzi Sneath said. Sponsors for the cheer- leaders were Trudy West and Anita Brozik. Meetings were scheduled for early Monday mornings in West's room. "Cheerleading may be a lot of hard work," Sneath said, "but the successful feeling after a game, pep as- sembly or dance routine makes every second of it worth it! lt's a blast!" - Tami Price M baud' E--f-H-H 70 Cheerleaders 'PRIVATE NUMBER': Seniors Jeanette Wright and Jennifer Lovenstein rock to the beat of the popular number by the Jetts.

Pops performed "Canon In D" and "My Heart Is Offered Still To You" for the contest. The choir received a Il rat- ing at the state contest in Lyons. They sang "Go Down Moses" arranged by Hayes and "Drop, Drop Slow Tears" by Williams. Individual performances included Kellie Headley, voice, lg Valerie Campbell, voice lg .Joelle Soukup, voice, llg and Girl's Ensem- ble, a I rating. Nl like being in chorus be- cause l like to accompany the choir on the piano," said senior Ellen Smith. Chorus was comprised of 87 students. The group was divided into four parts: so- prano, alto, tenor and bass. The choir performed two concerts, a Christmas Con- cert and a Spring Concert. When school board mem- ber Nick Slechta presided at the Kansas Association of School Boards in December, the Pops provided part of the entertainment. The con- vention was held at the Broadview Hotel in Wichita. The group participated in many activities including Christmas caroling, enter- taining at community lun- cheons and organization meetings, Open House, and the Homecoming Assembly. "I feel honored and privi- leged to be in Pops, because you have to qualify to be in the group," said senior An- gela Rodriguez.

Because of new uniforms, the band sported an up-to- date look. The new uniforms consisted of basic black slacks, and white shirts with ruffled fronts. These were overlaid with a short red bo- lero cut jacket with black and white trim. A black Aus- sie hat completed the outfit. The marching band per- formed at all of the home football games. ln Septem- ber they were part of the mass band assembled to play at Kansas University. At the Hutchinson State Fair, the marching band re- ceived a l rating. The pep band was responsible for playing at every home bas- ketball game. At State competition the band received a ll rating. "I felt we played very well," said Dennis Smith, music director. "We just had some unexpected prob- lems." The flag corps was in- volved in half time shows with the marching band and also performed at two home basketball games. The group was honored by being asked to perform at the 4A State Basketball Tourna- ment in Salina. Captains of the corps were seniors Marisa Ericson and Mary Dolezal. Smith selected jazz band members in February. Prac- tices were held in the morn- ing before school. They per- formed at the Pops and Jazz concert on May 11. After his second year as music director, Smith re- signed his teaching position. "The community, stu- dents, and faculty here have been very supportive. It has been a great place to begin my teaching career," Smith said. - Leah Bruce STAGE BAND MEMBERS: Qfront rowj Amy Snook, Erik Smith, Mary Dolezal, Tara Werner, Marisa Ericson, Jim Bach, fsecond rowj Ellen Smith, Scott Truhlar, Alan White, Joe Mazeg fback rowj Craig Bush, Tasha McAtee, John Munoz, Nick Rodriguez, Danielle Maddux. iPhoto by Kimberly Kohlsj 74 Band, Stage Band HIGH STEPPING: Junior Joelle Soukup and senior Kellie Headley have fun performing a routine during halftime. iPhoto by Trina Fullerj Us ,Q TAKING A BREAK: In their new uniforms, band members take time out to enjoy themselves during a football game. iPhoto by Trina Fullerl OFFICE TIME AT LAST: For music director Dennis Smith, time to do paper work is hard to find. fPhoto by Chris Ostromj I Ima: -1 I,:.

For Homecoming activi- ties, Student Council decid- ed on the spirit week sched- ule and made all plans con- cerning Homecoming week. Because of problems with class floats and lack of su- pervision, a Homecoming suggestion box was placed in the office for student in- put. A new and exciting event for the year was the Christ- mas Snowball Dance. The dance featured Christmas decorations including a Christmas tree and Santa Claus. To earn extra money, Stu- dent Council sponsored sev- eral concession stands throughout the year. "l wanted to be in Student Council because they are the base of our school," said senior treasurer Deneen Ur- banek. "Being in Student Council means being a part of your school, an active part!"

As a branch of Student Council, S.A.D.D. organized again this year to acquaint students with the dangers of driving drunk. "The main thing S.A.D.D. wants to do is to show stu- dents the risks of driving after one has been drink- ing," said senior Kevin Kohls, S.A.D.D. president. "l don't like to see people drink and drive and ruin their lives along with some- one else's," said junior Deb- bie Davis. To keep students from drinking and driving, the group handed out a contract between students and their parents. ln this contract the teenager agreed to call the parent if they were in a situa tion in which the driver was drunk. The parent agreed to come and get the teenager at any time with no ques tions asked, but the situa tion could be discussed at a future date. The parents also agreed to seek sober transportation if they were in a drinking situation. "l had a friend that was lost in an accident due to a drunk driver, and that made me want to be a part of the group," said senior Cindy Adamek, vice-president. - Tami Price '35 Q at ' T , " 5. . HO!

Some of the more profitable fund raisers were the fruit sales in December, the donkey bas- ketball game and conces- sion stands. One of the more popular events of the year was the selection of the FFA sweet- heart. FFA members chose junior candidates Kim Bob- bett, Debbie Davis, Cathy Haworth, Melissa Koralek and Mitzi Sneath. The candidates were judged on how they per- formed different farm du- ties. These duties included roping a goat, digging post holes, driving a post, carry- ing bales, backing up a lawn tractor and building a milk stool. The competition took place at the rodeo arena.

One of the first activities was a Trophy Polishing Par- ty. The cleaning took place in all the areas where tro- phies were stored through- out the school. One of the most popular events of the year was the annual Silver Tea which was held on May 3, a week be- fore Prom. At this event ju- nior and senior Kayettes were allowed to model their prom dresses before the public. The Kayette Kutie Con- test was held March 18.

"We also discuss some fund raisers, upcoming trips, and parties at meet- ings " said sophomore Eve- lyn Lutz. One of the highlights of the year proved to be the trip to Wichita February 22. The group went shopping at the Towne West Mall, at- tended a Methodist Church service conducted in Span- ish, and went to Chi Chi's. "lt was a lot of fun. We shopped for two hours and had a good time. Church was quite an experience, al- though it was hard to under- stand," senior Trina Fuller said.

As junior-senior mem- bers and their dates walked into the American Legion Hall, they entered a world of blue and silver decor. Bal- loons, sky murals and a stairway to the stars devel- oped the theme "Heaven ln Your Eyes." At the banquet, junior class president Amy Snook welcomed everyone.

Following the banquet, students had the chance to get their pictures taken while others danced to the music of DJ Mark Davis of 99KG until 11:30 p.m. For the first time, an after prom party was held at the Legion which was super- vised by many concerned parents and teachers. Named "Afterglow '87", the event was started as an al- ternative to the drinking par- ties that are usually associ- ated with after prom activi- ties. Various games, including casino-type games like Blackjack and Roulette, were provided. Movies were also shown throughout the evening on a 45" TV Screen. Several underclassmen vol- unteered to help out and serve snacks. Many local merchants were in favor of the after prom party and donated many gifts to be used as prizes. A sign up sheet was placed at the door for those who came in, and names were drawn for prizes throughout the evening. To conclude the eventful evening, parents served a 4 a.m. breakfast for all. - Tami Price COOLING OFF: During the dance, senior Laura Stefek and her date Travis Russell enjoy refreshments provided by the junior class. iPhoto by Trina Fullerj HARD AT WORK: Before prom decorating gets underway, juniors John Munoz and John Whitmer have fun while sweeping the floor. iPhoto by Amy Snookj -,-i, I - , ,A ' + . . i- J L 'fi 4?

"l'll be there for my kids when they need me," said Amanda Tripp, senior. "I want to give them a lot of things that I never had or never had the chance to have. I want my kids to take their time growing up and not have to grow up real fast." "l'll let my children say what they feel and be open with me without yelling at them," Valerie Borgstadter said. "l'll let them make their own decisions and mis- takes. l want my kids and I to be more friends than to have a mother-to-daughter relationship. I want to be able to talk to them." "l'lI treat my kids like they were human and know that they do make mis- takes," said junior Kim Bob- bett. "I would ask them to talk to me about their prob- lems, and I would make them understand how life is when they get married and get them ready for being out on their own." "l'll be open with my thoughts, and l'll encourage them to trust me and be open with me," senior Angie Bunch said. "I won't push them to do something I know they aren't going to do but encourage the children to do what they feel is the right thing for them. I want to be a friend to my children not just a parent." "Well, my parents are pretty cool Imost of the timeJ," said Joe Pilsl, sopho- Artists: Stephanie Friesen Jeanette Wright more. "I would be more leni- ent with the car once they are of age. One completely different thing is that l'm not getting divorced!" "I'lI let my kids date when they get into high school," said sophomore Julie Sarno. "I won't tell them who they can or can't hang around with or tell them how to run their lives." "I'll let them stay up as late as they want and they will be able to talk to me about most anything," sen- ior Andrea Mikulecky said. "l'll let them go to any concert, party or school function they want," said Terri Rick, freshman. "I won't yell at them when they ask for new clothes." "One thing I know l'Il do different is as soon as my children are born, l'm going to open up savings accounts for them and anytime they receive money, l'm going to put it in the account," said Billi Rush, senior. "I will probably be more strict when it comes to put- ting things away in my kids' room so there wouldn't be a big mess like my room usu- ally is," sophomore Chris Munoz said. "I will use 'positive rein- forcement' with my kid, tell- ing her that I appreciated something that she did, and avoid calling attention just to the things she did wrong," said senior Fabiola Abreu. "l'll be more positive! I will have more fun with my child, as much fun as possi- ble." Senior Audie Poole has something different in mind when he raises his children. "I will try to bring my chil- dren up the same way as it is done on the Cosby Show!"

They knew which classes they were going to take, and even knew most of the teachers, as well as most of the student body. They also became more involved in activities and knew which sports they wanted to pursue. The pace quickened for the ju- niors. First of all, they needed to earn money for the prom. To do this, they sold magazines, And for most ju- niors, ideas for career choices were becoming more important to them than ever before. Friendships grew stronger through student activities and also through personal involve- ments, such as dating. And finally as seniors, students suddenly wondered where all the time had gone. There just wasn't enough time to accomplish all the things seniors wanted to do. Ordering announcements, signing senior books and pictures, applying for scholarships, deciding which college to attend and making career choices - all of these things were top priori- ties for seniors. Through it all, students found one of the main reasons for coming to school was to be with their friends. - Denise Woodbury - Pam Schmidt Classes Division 5 1 1 ' I ,. 11.9. 5.51 TTE 'rio E roR : need to be turned in by De- cember 15. Remember to take head and shoulder shots with no hands in pic- tures. ATTENTION SENIORS: A K-State Representative will be in the counselor's of- Hce next Tuesday morning to discuss college costs. Please sign up in the office to see him. Announcements such as these played a vital role in keeping seniors aware of their many costs throughout the year. Early in the year seniors were bombarded with tons of worries and pressures about expenses for the up- coming year and their future plans. One of the first expenses for the school year involved senior pictures. These pic- tures were not only used for the yearbook and hall panels but were also given to spe- cial friends and family mem- bers. The cost for pictures ranged from S100 to S500 with the average price paid being 5250. Another big expense was graduation, and even though it came at the end of the year the expenses started early in the fall. Seniors or- dered announcements, sen- ior books, senior keys, and of course, their caps and gowns. Some of these ex- penses, however, were paid for through class funds. Even though the junior class paid for the prom ban- 96 Seniors quet and dance, seniors still Counselor Dennis Boep. had numerous expenses for ple Said that the Week gave this occasion. the students the chance to EXPenSeS for Pfom night evaluate their future "The rental of the limo will cost 8200, but l will be sharing the cost so it won 't be too expensive." included money for either a formal or tuxedo, corsage or boutonniere and prom pic- tures. A few students were fortu- nate to have had the added luxury of a limousine in which to attend prom, but they also had the added ex- penses. "The rental of the limo will cost about S200 total," said senior Jeff Allen, one of the fortunate students, "but I will be sharing the cost so it won't be too expensive." Following the ACT test which took place in Octo- ber, seniors got down to business and began making choices for Senior Work Week. From November i7 to 21, seniors joined the work force by selecting jobs which best fit their future ca- reer interests. - Jeff Allen choices. About 50 percent of the students change their interests after the week is over. Many decide that they don't want to do what they thought they did," Counsel- or Boepple said. After experiencing the working world, seniors had the opportunity to see what college life was like by visit- ing the colleges of their choice. Seniors were al- lowed two college days to view the campus, talk to de- partment heads and stu- dents who were already at- tending that college. ln addition to college days, representatives of var- ious colleges held meetings at the high school to discuss specific details such as dif- ferent courses of study of- fered, student loans and col- lege costs. Along with all the high school expenses, many stu- dents also had to worry about money for college. Financial aid proved to be very important for college bound students. To apply for financial aid, a person must fill out the American College Testing Family Fi- nancial statement form. Some different types of aid were the Pell Grant, the Na- tional Direct Student Loan, The Kansas Tuition Grant, which was available to quali- fied students going to pri- vate schools, and the Sup- plemental Educational Op- portunity Grants. Many different scholar- ships also helped to supple- ment the money needed for college. The daily announcements kept seniors up to date on their scheduled activities and costs and proved to be a helpful reminder.

Fabiola Abreu from Brazil stayed with the Jan Bruce family, Felix Girones from Spain lived with the Ron Spain family, Javier Placer also from Spain stayed with the Carl John- son family, and Peter San- delmann from Germany stayed with the Wayne Wal- lert family. All were eager to share the cultures of their country. Abreu said that the Brazi- lians were very friendly and warm people. "l like the way we make friends." ln Germany, young peo- ple can go to discos when they are 16, according to Sandleman. On the other hand, a young person had to be 18 before they could drive a car, he said. "We have about 40 mil- lion tourists every year on our marvelous beaches," FGREIGN EXCHANGE STU- DENTS: Meeting in the library are ifront rowi Peter Sandelmann and Fabiola Abreu fback rowl Javier Placer and Felix Girones. iPhoto by Trina Fullerl Placer said. Only two foreign ex- change students had high school students in their host families, Fabiola Abreu, who stayed with senior Leah Bruce and Peter Sandel- mann, who stayed with sophomore Joe Pilsl. "My mom brought up the idea last year and then we just blew it off," said Pilsl. "But then in April, we thought of it again, and we signed up for a German stu- dent and that is how we got Peter." "My parents thought hav- ing a foreign exchange stu- dent would be an unforgetta- ble experience," said Bruce. Both of the exchange stu- dents enjoyed many special moments with their host family students. "We go to basketball games, wrestling matches and parties," Pilsl said. Pilsl and Sandelmann both agreed that skiing proved to be their favorite time together. "One of my fondest memories with Fabi is when we stayed up all night and talked about the differences in our countries," Bruce said. Although Placer and Gir- ones didn't have high school students in their host fam- ilies, they still enjoyed doing many family activities. "We go hunting, to the movies and shoot some pool," Placer said. All four students agreed that school is much easier here than in their own coun- tries. "Whatever l am studying here, l have studied a couple of years ago in Spain," Plac- er said. "l think school is a lot ea- sier, but it has too many as- signments and quizzes," Abreu said. American history, govern- ment, economics, speech and English were their re- quired courses, while typ- ing, computers, physics and art were just a few of their electives. The four said they liked some American food but not all. "My favorite food is pizza prepared the American way," Sandelmann said, "al- though l don't like very many fast foods." "American food is okay sometimes, but it's not very healthy forever," Placer said. The school year passed quickly. All too soon it was time for good friends to part. Even though many miles would separate new ac- quaintances, the memories would always last. - Amy Snook Foreign Exchange nur ii 4 Z 44 4. 2: Y , ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS: Fabiola Abreu tells Santa Claus lMr. Poolej what she wants for Christmas while sitting on his lap at the Snowball Dance. iPhoto by Trina Fullerb A LITTLE CONVERSATION: After school, junior Amy Snook and foreign exchange student Peter Sandelmann discuss their day. iPhoto by Kimberly Kohlsj PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT: Exchange stu- dent Javier Placer takes advantage of the nice weather by playing tennis. iPhoto by Trina Fullerj GIRLS.

That week shed light on one star- tling fact: The United States had been selling arms to Iran for some time now. During that fateful week several government offi- cials, including former Na- tional Security Council Chief Robert McFarlane, made se- cret trips to lran bearing gifts, some of which were simply symbolic. These little "peace" offer- ings were only the tip of the iceberg. The real "gift" was a planeload of military equipment. The military shipments, totaling more than S600 mil- lion, had been routed President Reagan said the United States would not bargain or deal with terrorists. through israel to iran. Anti- tank missiles, radar sys- tems, and spare parts for F-4 Phantom jets were a few things to be found among these secret shipments. Why would the United States send S60 million in arms to Iran? No one knows the answers, but speculators said it could be to help get the release of hostages or to get strategic information about Soviet equipment. This situation had one ma- jor irony. President Ronald Reagan, when he took office in 1981, said the United States would not bargain with terrorists. Up to early 1985 Reagan kept his word, but since that time the White House had been allow- ing secret shipments to lran. The truth was hard to swallow, but the U.S. had been shipping arms to Iran. Now the world had caught our top government officials with their pants down. NEW GOVERNOR: Mike Hayden is all smiles as he receives congratula- tions after the inaugural ceremonies. iPhoto by Marisa Ericsonj Public elects Hayden as new governor By Ron Davis, Jr. Republican Mike Hay- den came away victori- ous over Democrat Tom Docking in the 1986 gov- ernor's race. Hayden was the Ells- worth County favorite pulling in 1,806 votes while Docking finished with 1,139. Statewide, Hayden clearly defeated Docking as he received most of the urban and western Kansas votes. Hayden is only the sec- ond Republican in the governor's office in the past 20 years. 110 News 'A 5 -1' V 1 fi 1, .. a Mg? .... 1 gi wg x 1:2 39:1--zwfl - i1-11 1 . vw . 1313335 2 lg! X -: - I.

The school board agreed to go with a central kitchen. All the food for the elementary school, middle school and the high school was prepared in the high school kitchen and shipped in hot carts to the other schools. Seven cooks were involved in this new program. These included Millie Stefek, head cook, Nina Hysell, Wilhelmina Donley, llene Munoz, Mary Smith, Mary Francis Janda and Doris Svoboda. Four ladies reported to the other schools, two at the middle school, plus one additional lady served at each school. The cooks began preparing the meals at 6:30 a.m., and the food had to be shipped out by 10:15 a.m. The school board plans to save S 13,000 to S 15,000 by implementing the central kitchen.

Whether it was going out on dates, being with family or friends or just staying home, weekends proved to be a very important time away from school. When going out on dates and with friends, most stu- dents went to Salina to catch a show or just stayed in Ellsworth to drag main or stay at home and watch tele- vision. "Tobi and I usually stay at home. But if there is a movie playing and we both that's like it, we'll go see it," said Joelle Soukoup. "I go out on dates almost every weekend," said Chris Ostrom. "I enjoy going to Chevy's, to the movies and cruising." Melissa Koralek said she enjoyed going to dances at the Legion and to high school parties. Although weekends were fun, they weren't free. It cost anywhere from S10 to S20 to go out depending on the .X ..t. . ,, situation. lt was usually cheaper to go out with a group of friends because ev- eryone was responsible for their own expenses only. Because of the expenses of going out, many students found themselves needing jobs. Even though these jobs gave students extra spend- ing money, they weren't al- ways convenient, and they often interfered with w'eek- end fun. "I work about 14 to 20 hours every weekend," said Mike Weatherley, "and it does interfere. We never know when we can do any- thing because we never know how much time we will have to spend together. "lt definitely interferes to work on the weekends, but if I didn't work I wouldn't be able to go out at all," Os- trom said. "I work about 7 hours dur- ing the weekend," said Kim Svaty. "It is very tiring, and l don't get to do things with my family as much." Many students also en- joyed spending time with their families during the weekend. "lf my sister is home, we will go out to eat or rent a VCR and watch movies at home," Soukup said. Kelly Monroe said that her family enjoys going to her grandma's about every weekend. "We play cards and vol- leyball or football," said Monroe. Many weekends gave stu- dents memories that will last a life time. And sometimes it wasn't always the planned activities that turned out to be the most fun. Occasional- ly, the unexpected became the most memorable. "One of my most memo- rable weekends happened toward the end of my sopho- more year. Some of my friends and I went cruising cemetaries, and we went to the one in Carneiro. I turned off the truck, and then it wouldn't start again. We walked to a farmer's house at 12:30 in the morning, and he went with us to start the truck. However this was use- less, but he was nice enough to take us all home. My dad and I went out in the morn- ing to get the truck strarted and found that it wouldn't start because it was in re- verse," said Ostrom. "My most memorable weekend took place in Sali- na when six of us went down together. First, we went shopping at the new mall, and then we ate at McDon- alds. Next we went to see the movie, 'PIatoon,' and we got a little obnoxious," Kim Hanson said. "To top it all off, we went to the Kansas concert at the Bicentennial Center and the keyboardist waved at us! lt was a tiring weekend, but lots of fun." With all the worries and pressures of school, the weekends never came too soon. As Friday rolled around, it was fun to get away and enjoy all the week- end pleasure. - Amy Snook Amy Black j Klmberly Bobbett . . I 1. . . -N 3 Mme Boll' H . 3. Valerie Campbell wel - Q . 1 - . .. .

"You can say I am a very big sports fanatic. I watch every game on TV that I can, and every morning I read the sports section from the Sali- na Journal and the Wichita Eagle Beacon. My walls are covered with basketball posters and magazine pic- tures. As far as clothes, I have t-shirts and shorts of KU," said Shelly Svaty. "I watch all the sports I can if I like the sport," said Dan Lindenmeyer. "I read the sports section first, and I will get clothes that have the team name or mascot on them." Although there were many fanatics, some stu- dents enjoyed sports with- out being one. "I'm just an average fanat- ic," said Mike Bunch. "I read the sports page but not first, and I watch some TV. I also collect baseball cards." There were many favorite sports, teams and players for both college and profes- sional. College basketball ranked first with Kansas University being the favorite college team. Danny Manning fol- lowed as favorite player. "By far basketball is my favorite sport," said Svaty, "because it requires a per- son to be a complete ath- lete." Football and baseball were also popular but at the professional level instead of college. Each sport had var- ious favorite teams and play- ers. "Football is my favorite because there is a lot of physical contact," said Shayne Brown. "I enjoy watching baseball because I like to play the game, and I want to keep up with who's hot and who's not," Bunch said. Some students didn't just enjoy the typical sports but also some very unique ones. Wes Llrbanek said that he enjoyed watching "truck and tractor pulls with a pop- ular monster truck, 'Big- foot,' performing. Motorcycle racing was a favorite for Scott Weatherly. "I love to watch the jumps and wrecks," Weath- erly said. Scott Truhlar also en- joyed an interesting sport. He said he liked fishing, and he would often watch it on TV. Seeing the sport 'live' was also a very exciting event. "It's like a concert," said Joe Pilsl. "lt's always better live." Svaty had the chance to attend her favorite sport while at the Olympics in 1984. "The most exciting thing of being there live was just the thought of being in the same place with all those famous basketball players," Svaty said. With all the interest that sophomores showed in these activities is it any won- der that they became sports fanatics? - Amy Snook I...

Since I am, I have been able to do things with different people, and I am more involved with new activities," said Anita Foran. "Being involved has made adjusting a lot easier," said Jason Kohls. "Its helped me feel more like a part of ever- ything." "Being involved has made me work harder to get good grades, and I have met a lot of new people," said Brian Pruitt. There were several popu- lar activities among the new- comers. SADD, High-Y and Kayettes topped the list. Many also enjoyed FFA, For- ensics and different music groups. "Many freshmen have joined different music groups, and they seem very willing to become involved," said Dennis Smith, music di- rector. Students agreed that sports were a fun activity to become involved in because it gave them the chance to become friends with upper- classmen and to learn how to be competitive at a higher level. Although many students were involved in many dif- ferent organizations and sports, almost everyone had a favorite. "Volleyball is my favorite sport," said Tammy Burrell. "lt gives me a chance to learn new things and to set goals for myself." "Wrestling is the most fun for me, and the coach is real- ly fun to be with," said Arrin Haase. "I love tennis," said Melis- sa Zavesky. "It's fun and you can stay in shape while doing it." Sports were a favorite of many, but organizations also proved to be very popular among freshmen. "Many freshmen joined Kayettes, and I feel overall many are very active in par- ticipation," said Kayette sponsor Judy Fuller. "Kayettes is my favorite because it's fun, and I get to spend time with my friends," said Terri Rick. Being so involved brought much pleasure to all fresh- men.

"I enjoyed being involved because I was part of a team, and I got to spend time with my friends," said Deanna Bobbett.

To- day's families of the 80's are taking advantage of the vast array of appliances avail- able. The rapidly expanding fields of technology are cre- ating new and more sophisti- cated appliances, such as compact disc players CCD'sJ, VCR's, microwaves, com- puters, and more . . . all this to make life more comfort- able and enjoyable. After first acquiring a new appliance, it takes some time to become familiar with it. Once the owners become acquainted with its usage, they begin to take the appli- ance for granted. Senior Deneen Llrbanek's family often find themselves asking this question, "Was there life before micro- waves?" "Our microwave has practically fixed every meal since we got it except for dessert and oven baked meals," senior Karen Chinn said. Another item high on the list of popularity is the VCR. Many people buy one so they can tape shows they missed due to work or a pre- vious engagement andfor rent tapes and watch popu- lar movies. "Because of our VCR, l don't have to go to the mov- ies as often and spend as much money," said Kim Bobbett, junior. "Without our VCR and microwave, l wouldn't have anything to watch movies on or to heat anything up real quick." Compact disc players are a very new, sophisticated item out on the market. Very few people acquired one, however, because of their high price tag. "I think there is a real dif- ference between the sound of a CD and a tape," said sophomore Scott Truhlar. "CD sound is very clear. You can tell the difference if you listen to it after listening to a tape." As these appliances be- come easier to use and can do more functions, the items lose some of their glamour. "We have had them long enough that the newness has worn off, and we just use it," Truhlar said. One of the benefits Bob- bett found was, "lt is quicker to eat something when you heat it in the mi- crowavef' "We have become very dependent upon our micro- wave," Llrbanek said. "lt is a lot easier to stick something in the microwave rather than heat up the stove or oven." Appliances are so com- mon now that many people would feel like they were in the stone age without them. Sophomore Toni Kerby says it well.

Two administrators, Charles Bray principal, and Rudy Pouch, director of spe- cial services, resigned at the end of the school year after several years of dedication and service. During his four years as principal, Bray helped change or make additions to over 26 courses in the cur- riculum.

"I feel l have added to the quality of education and im- proved discipline during my tenure. My office has been open to all students and staff for the purpose of ex- pressing concerns, Adiscus- sion of personal problems and for the exchange of ideas helpful to the school," Bray said. Rudy Pouch left the dis- trict after five years of ser- vice. "l'm leaving with mixed emotions because there are so many fine people and stu- dents," Pouch said. Pouch served as athletic director for the district's schools and was also in charge of transportation and food services. Although the schools will miss the leadership of Bray and Pouch, many important advances were made in the school system. The Silver- wood Wing was completed and plans were made for construction of two addition- al classrooms at Kanopolis Middle School. Superintendent Bert Hitchcock said that the year was successful because of positive leadership by sen- iors and other individuals of the school. "The Silverwood Wing is in excellent shape after a year, which is a credit to stu- dents, faculty, and parents," Hitchcock said. - Kim Hanson - Amy Snook Nl' .W--.....,,M, awww,-N SCHOOL BOARD MEM- BERS: Taking care of the de- cisions of District 327 schools are David Bircher, Jan Andrews, Marty Sauers, president Derril Gwinner, Al Erichsen, Nick Slechta and Sandra Pflughoeft. iPhoto by Marisa Ericsoni DEEP CONCENTRATION: School board President Derril Gwinner looks over some important papers for the upcoming meeting. iPhoto by Marisa Ericsonj NOW LOOK HERE: Superintendent Bert Hitchcock checks architectural plans with Gary Karst of Horst, Terrill and Karst for K.M.S. classrooms. iPhoto by Amy Snookj School Board, Administration 125 TEA HER 'tc -char - occupation is to instruct. These people devote them- selves to guiding the studies of children, but they can be embarrassed just as easily as their students. "My most embarrassing moment was not only in front of a class, it was in front of many people at a debate tournament in Sa- tanta. My pant's zipper broke, and l didn't have a safety pin. lt was between so the hallways rounds, were full of people. Luckily, l had my briefcase to hold in front of me. My students caught on quick and thought it was hilarious. Since it was an overnight tournament, l had a pair of jeans to change into - then l was the only debate coach in jeans.

"One day we were work- ing on jewelry projects, and l needed a certain pair of pliers. l looked on the tables around where we were work- ing and couldn't find them anywhere. l asked the class if anyone had the pliers only to discover they were in my other hand," said Annette Bourne, art teacher. Home Economics teacher Judy Fuller, told about "the day l was showing a class how l walked out of my shoes once before, and this time l fell on the floor, tore the knee out of my hose and bruised my knee." "The most embarrassing moment that l have had oc- curred several years ago," said Trudy West, language arts teacher. Mr. Erbert Qdur- ing his years as principalj was evaluating me for the first time that year. Everyth- ing was going very well until l broke into a sweat. l never sweat, but this day l did. l calmly asked one of the stu- dents to open a window in the rear of the room. At the time, l was in my room in the old building. Immediate- ly l was under control, the sweat quit dripping and al- most immediately l became very cold. So within min- utes, l asked the same stu- dent to shut the window. Mr. Erbert later told me during the evaluation conference that he couldn't believe how cold it was in my room, and then l asked for the window to be opened." Accounting teacher Janet Reed remembers the mo- ment "when my sixth hour accounting class took my shoes and hid them. Then, l had a visitor knock on the door and had to answer the door with no shoes on." "I was explaining how to diagram sentences to a class of freshmen. When it was time to explain the position of the conjunction, l said '. .. and you put your but on the line.' Of course, l meant the conjunction, but it didn't sound that way," said Linda Sandell, English teacher. Incidents such as these helped provide lighter mo- ments and even bordered on the outrageous. - Kim Hanson s-255:55-,:S:i, V. l iifif.. . tk sf aw A Q? xi' D Hx it X . z.:-1: A, Q -,Q--,E 1 ..,, as 3, X .. by I A . wg X 'N 'Y X if N ' Y "f: est XYGRY' A-get .:':f::I::E: x N' ' ,F -.

These are the people who of- ten get to school in the early hours of the morning and keep the buildings open late at night for different activi- ties. One of the biggest changes was the all-district kitchen which began Janu- ary I. Seven cooks prepared all of the district's meals at the high school. At 10:15 a.m., meals were delivered to the Ellsworth Elementary School and Kanopolis Mid- dle School. Millie Stefek was the head cook. In the high school office, secretaries Cindy Choitz, and Vivian Peppiatt made sure the day got off to a good start. Peppiatt, who helps with the lunch program and does much of the record keeping, completed her 20th year as a high school secretary. "There are always changes. The high school is progressing, and I enjoy be- ing with the kids. It's a nice place to work, and as long as my health holds, I plan to continue working here," Peppiatt said. At the district office, Jan McCaulIey was the secre- tary to the superintendent served as clerk of the board. With the addition of the Silverwood Wing, the custo- dians added an extra chal- lenge to their duties. Besides keeping the grounds and building in good shape, they maintained the buildings for the night classes from Bar- ton County Community Col- lege. - Kim Hanson and deputy clerk of the I board.

When the portfolios were ready, the staff set out to sell as many ads as possible. Staff members were very successful with their ad campaign. Fifty-five ads were sold for a total of S2,3l7.5O. The Ellsworth-Kanopolis commu- nity offered all types of businesses. lf a student needed a new pair of jeans for instance, it was only a few min- utes to the downtown area. After school, cars lined the streets as stu- dents did their shopping. The community boasted many dif- ferent types of stores. Some of them were clothing, shoes, furniture, vari- ety, drug, hair salons, restaurants, banks, grocery, gas stations, hard- ware, gifts, automotive supplies, and cars. All of these businesses prospered from industries in the Ellsworth-Kan- opolis area such as Cashco, Acme Brick, Independent Salt Mine, the Ellsworth Printing Co., the Ellsworth Reporter and Craftworld. Just as the community and school supported all the various stores and services, the businesses bought ad- vertising in school publications and sports programs. They also donated prizes for the Elkan dance and the sgisgi.. Afterglow Party following Prom. With the prison now under con- struction, many more businesses have already opened or will be opened in the future. Some of these businesses that have opened recent- ly are the Donut Shop, Stop 'N' Shop, two laundromats and KyIer's Kottage. There are rumors going around that many more businesses and restaurants will be opening soon.

Charlie Steier of St. Bernard's Catholic Church gave the communi- ty address. "We all want to be no- ticed," Fr. Steier said. "lf we seem unappreciated by others, we should remember God loves and appreciates us all." Former Governor John Carlin, who gave the Commencement Address, told seniors that they were just begin- ning the competition of what their lives would be about. "Your diploma doesn't mean a thing unless you're willing to take your talents with you and apply them. Because of the competition out there you have to deliver. Noth- ing is handed to you." Governor Carlin emphasized to seniors that their education should not stop, and they should continue learning.
