In' this age, self-identity and individuality have been greatly publicized.
Students strive to be unique in both appearance and thoughts. Realizing cliques
and groups tend to make a person more tolerant, the staff still believed groups help
to destroy individuality.
Clubs often lose the individual in the group. A posed picture ofroll members
does not reflect the true contributions of participants. As a substitute for group
shots, candid pictures have been used to give a more realistic story of the club's
activities and copy was written to capture the individuals' opinions.
Student interest in clubs and extra-curricular activities was on the decline in
1972. This correlated with the general decline in school spirit at the Fort.

Student Council . . .
Has been said
to be a farce in the past, with student
problems not voiced and little accomplished.
However, this year, headed by Phil Gibson
and Vice-President Bill Jeffress, the Student
Council has been somewhat more active.
Regular required Monday meetings were
abolished and special meetings were held
when the president or members had
something to say.
Such things as the Homecoming Dance,
music in the cafeteria and United Fund
raising projects required special meetings.
"We had the problem of getting a quorum
to attend the meetings so we couldntt get
much donef, said Mr. Schaberg, sponsor.
"Student Council members need to be people
who are interested in government and are not
involved in so many extra-curricular
"WE WERE GOING TO GET
SOMETHING DONE . 4 ."
A Q The Student Council arranged for the new
student lobby furniture and a cement patio.
Student Council member Greg Bloss saidg
Hltlappeared we were going to get something
done this year, but when it came time forthe
actual doing nothing happefiear'

AND MADE IT MORE
Dennis O'Hara, president of National
Honor Society gave his viewpoint of the new
induction. "It involved the family and made it
more personal to the inductees."
The 40 inductees were tapped during third
hour on November 31' and excused from class
for the traditional reception and lunch.
Another hour was spent rehearsing for the
assembly. New inductee, Rose Hulett said,
"It's not the honor it used to be and students
aren't as impressed about it as they have been
in recent years, but I was glad to have been
Sponsor of the group, Mr. Larry Deaton,

The fifth annual . . .
was held after many hours of glittering stars
and hanging crepe paper. Sponsored by
NHS, the dance was one of the few that was
met with enthusiasm by the club members.
Mr. Bretz stated, "Unlike past years all the
members got involved and helped decorate."
A group composed of Fort Osage students
provided the music. "Stonefox" received
comments from the guests. Karen La Rue
said, "It was a great band to listen to but not
appropriate for a formal dance." '

"WE DIDN'T WASTE TIME BY
Quill and Scroll like other honor societies,
was not a very active club. "We didn't waste
our time by holding unproductive meetings,
instead we went right to work," said Vice-
President, Sherri Phillips.
Activities included the yearbook dance, a
last-minute entry to the Homecoming float
and bake sales, The main event was the
annual banquet held at Tandra's Restaurant.
At that time 14 juniors and seniors were
inducted and the '73 staffs were announced.
The formal banquet appeared in a lighter
humor as juniors portrayed the publications
staff in a humorous skit. The serious in-
duction turned out to be a calamity between
singed hair, slips of the tongue and un-
controllable laughing. "Except for the hairy
food the banquet was an overall success,"
said Kim Huber.

The SMOKE SIGNAL was . . .
in high school journalism. This was the idea
behind the many changes that took place in
the school publications department.
Donning a new look, magazine format and
various colors appeared in the 18 issues.
Opinions of the student body seemed
favorable. "I liked the color and the large
number of pictures that were usedf, said
Dede Carver, sophomore.
The staff had its times of depression but the
overall attitude was that of cooperation.
Tight deadlines posed a problem as did the
lack of communication between the editorial
board and the writing staff.
"BECAUSE OF DEADLINES,
THE STAFF WAS HINDEREDH
"Because of the tight deadlines, the
creativity and willingness of' the staff was
hindered," said Greg Byfield, staff artist.
There was much controversy concerning
several editorial articles. It was difficult to
write objectively and responsibly.
Sherri Phillips, editor said, "I believe our
paper reflected many of the administration's
ideas and values, unfortunately not that of the
student body as a whole."

not as easy as it first seemed. "The biggest
problem was finding people really interested
in working. For a while I didn't think we were
going to have a '72 INDIAN LEG-ENDS,"
said Patti Cunningham, editor.
"I DIDN'T THINK WE WERE
GOING TO HAVE A YEARBOOKY'
The small staff encountered many
problems. Lack of money was probably the
most pressing. ,Debbie Wright, business
manager said, "We didn't even have enough
for the necessities let alone all the extras we'd
have liked to have done such as color."
Selling posters and sponsoring dances in-
creased the size of the budget.
Trying to express an honest story of the
year in the limited space available was often
difficult. In an effort to relate both sides of
each situation an' unbelievable amount of
debate from both resulted. Paul Choplin,
copy-editor said, "It's hard to write ob-
jectively about controversial subjects."

Carol Brendel, vice-president, said, "I think it

conclude the day's activities.
The main project of the year was raising
money. Running the concession stand at

increased the treasury. However, AFS wasn't
all work, members found time for fun.
Several volleyball parties were held in

The most successful events French Club
organized were a Christmas party and a going

After that, things seemed to go down hill

Brian Moore, "due to the lack of interest and
participation of the members, and officers.
Spanish Club proved to be slightly more
active in the last year. They visited Las

the community this year. Roxy Comer,
president, said, "We tried to do something for
someone during each of the holidaysf'
FHA set out to attain its goals by
announcing the annual sock-hop September
7. The profits from this dance served as the
financial foundation for the holiday projects.
FHA fell short ofits goals when Mrs. Isabelle
Clark broke her hip and was unable to return
until February. The girls found it hard to get
teachers to sponsor them in their activities.
"Mrs, Schowpe was our biggest help during
Mrs. Clark's absence," said Karen Bruer.
"WE WOULD HAVE LIKED TO
HAVE DONE MORE . . .',
The club began their first project during
Christmas. Stuffed animals and toys were
made for the ChiIdren's Mercy Hospital. The
toys were delivered at Easter. "We would
have liked to have done more for Christmas
but we lacked time," said Debbie Robinson.
Roxy Comer summed up the year, "The
club had a lot of good aims and we did a few
good things for the community, but I was
disappointed in the overall lack of interest."

Financial crisis. . .
F OHS remained
open during the 1971-72 year without finan-
cial interruption while neighboring districts
temporarily closed their doors.
Trying to please both parents and students,
the Board of Education had their work cut
out for them. The dress code controversy
which had plagued the school in previous
years was finally settled. Popular styles such
as hot pants, maxis, and pantsuits were
accepted into the revised dress code.
Other issues, ranging from the building of
the new junior high to the crowded bus
situation, were met with equal concern.
". . .QUALITY EDUCATION
WITH THE BEST POSSIBLE
"In the opinion of the Board of Education
members, it is not a question of one policy
being more important than another, but
providingquality education for the students
with the best possible teachers and school
personnel," commented Hyman
Meinershagen, School Board President.
Mr. Wallace QBudj Berrier, a dedicated
board member, passed away October l, 1971.
His four years of service and concern for the
community will always be remembered.

1972 was a. . .
Year 0 change
for Fort Osage High School. Computer
scheduling offered a large variety of classes to
choose from. A different student "look"
prevailed as a new liberalized dress code took
effect. A new secretary, Mrs. Jan Hendershot
added a new look in the office.
"MANY STUDENTS DON'T
REALIZE HOW MUCH THEIR
HOW THE SCHOOL WAS RUN.,'
These changes according to Principal
Richard Franklin were caused by students.
"Many students don't realize how much their
interests influence the way the school was
run." Everything the administration did was
with the students in mind. The semester
scheduling hoped to get more students into
the specialized areas where they were
The early releasal of seniors proved to be
beneficial to both the students and the com-
munity. After six semesters, qualifying
students were permitted to work and obtain
an education through the community.
The new dress code was favorably accepted
by administrators and students. "Overall it
was the minority that caused the problems.
The same was true of discipline," stated
Assistant Principal Mr. Kim Schaberg.

introduced the new computer scheduling this
year making several new problems to take the
place of the ones it solved. Students were
plagued by uneven semester scheduling with
an overload in one semester and a rash of
study halls in the other.
"We couldn't have had all the variety of
classes offered and with the increased size of
the school computer scheduling was a
necessity," said Mrs, Koehler.
Another change was college and career
week. In the past two years, one day was set
aside for businesses and colleges to set up
displays in the gym. In l972, students heard
guest speakers in classrooms or in the
auditorium. Some liked the new idea, others
"I LEARNED MORE WITH THE
BOOTHS SET UP IN THE GYM"
"I felt I learned more with the booths set
up in the gym, because you had the choice of
who you wanted to talk to," said Sharon
Hamilton. "We seemed to get some guest
speakers who didn't know what they were
talking about. Most of them were kind of
boring, except the man on drugs," said
I Probably the biggest problem of the
counseling department was that there were
too many students with too many problems
and not enough counselors to go around.

Students benefited from the specialized

The Math Department has advanced
tremendously over the past few years. "We
used to have history and PE instructors

Students found math classes both in-

"I LIKE DOING EXPERIMENTS

The Science Department used experiments

Gave studen ts
a wide range of classes to choose from

them a new freedom in class selection.
"THE SELECTION NOW MAKES
HISTORY MORE TOLERABLE
New classes such as Afro-American history
and Sociology were greeted by students with
enthusiasm. Sherri Phillips, senior, said
"I've always hated history, but the big selec
tion now offered makes it more tolerable
History teacher, Mr. 'Gary Kelly ap
proached the changes with caution. "They
provide a short concise introduction into
subjects, but there may be a loss of depth.
In all, ten history courses were offered. But
variety was 'not the only new dimension.
Teachers were offering a more relaxed at-
mosphere in their classes. "I tried to get the
students involved by having more discussion
in my classes, not just straight lecture," said

The theater wasn't always used for drama

continuous use with guest speakers and other

Class projects in lighting, make-up and

the students applied their knowledge to the
fall and spring plays. "The informal at-

The rest is history but this year it happened

presented not only the annual spring play, but
a fall play as well.
"WE SHOULD USE THE

after only four weeks of rehearsal. "I think it
was 'a good idea to have the play because we
might as well use the theatre to it's fullest as
long as we have it," said Elaine Wyatt. I
However the yearlwas climaxed in May
when Thornton Wilder's "The Matchmaker"
opened May 10th and played through to the
The four-act farce was deemed a success '
even though the entire cast had suffered a
severe case of apathy. "Despite the poor
turnouts at the practices I think the play
turned out better than we expected," said
Paul 4Warnex, cast member.
Elaborate costuming and extensive props
helped in making the play a memorable one.

by the music department, played four nights

"IT WAS HARD WORK, BUT IN

The musical production was not without its
problems. With over 100 people involved in
the effort, attendance at practice was dif-
ficult. "The actors were not putting the
musical first, but were letting other activities
occupy their time," said Mr. Gussman.
"Running the show four nights tended to tire
the participants."Frank Neef said, "It was
hard work, but in the end it was more than
worth the effort?
Although the musical came off well it was
not without its critics. Student Director Patty
Larkin said, "It seems some of the actors
couldn't sing and some of the singers couldn't
act." On the other hand Mark Harvey said,

Three phases . . .
the Fort Osage band. They were the ability to
excel, the encouragement to improve, and the
determination to win at contest.
Beginning the year was a 96-member
marching band, led by drum majors Carolyn
Hedges and Paul Warnex, which performed
in four half time football shows. Band par-
ticipated in three area parades, the American
Royal, the Independence Halloween parade,
and the Buckner Fall Festival. ul hated the
practice but when it came time to perform I
always had fun," said Becky Warnex. I
When the football season ended, the band
was cut down to 72-members and began
preparation for their winter concert, and the
most important event . . . Music Contest.
"THIS IS THE BEST EFFORT
OUR BAND HAS GIVEN. . ."
A big change occurred this year concerning
District Music Contest. It was held at Wm.
Jewell College instead of Warrensburg. This
change, however, did not affect the band's
performance. After two months of hard prac-
tice, the band was rewarded by receiving a I.
Fifteen soloists and ensembles also received I
ratings. Mr. Scriven commented, "This was
the best, cooperative effort our band has ever
given for contest as well as for concerts."

Mrs. Vernay Thrapp, department head, felt
her load lightened with the assistance of Mrs.

Mrs. King's students gained experience by

Mrs. Thrapp worked closely with the
students, "Of my years of teaching, I have
enjoyed this year more than any before. I
have never had so many talented students."
Many of the seniors shared their talent by
doing permanent art work for the school. An
eight-foot Indian was designed by Mary
Schneller and Diane Minnick, to decorate the
football field. Marsha Baumgarden left a

the needed depth and variety that the depart-
ment previously had lacked. Eight new classes
were put in the curriculum allowing students
to select specifically what interested them.
Home Economic courses were designed to
aid girls in practical experience. "These
courses provide girls with knowledge of what
to do in everyday situations which should help
them in the future," said Mrs. Schwope,
Home Economics teacher.
"IT'S SUPPOSED TO MAKE ME

One of the new semester courses, Personal
Development, taught girls poise and how to
look their best. One of the students, Paula
Doyle said, "It's supposed to make me more
beautiful but I don't think it's working."
An interesting scope of activities, field trips

This exemplified the feelings of many

it isn't easy to please 800 students but they
tried without much gratitude.
Several new additions to the Fort were
added in an attempt to reduce complaints.
The dream of having a juke box in the
cafeteria wasn't realized but a music system
was installed by Charlie Perrin.
"Lots of people complained about hearing
the same songs, but it was their fault for not
bringing other recordsf' said Jenny Cole.
The crowded condition was still a problem
but was partially relieved by the patio tables
and chairs in the lobby. Most students had a
positive attitude towards the "new" students'

sible for cleaning it up wasn't always

A bittersweet . . .
joy and sadness described graduation as high
school ended for 243 Fort Osage seniors.
"IT WAS KIND OF SCARY 'TO
GRADUATE. . ."
Friends and teachers were left behind as
seniors clung to their memories. Taken away
from the security ofhigh school, seniors were
thrust into the unknown and sometimes
frightening future. "lt's kind of scary to
graduate because I'm not sure about what I
want to do," stated Doug Howard.
Commencement ceremonies, for the se-
cond year, were held in the RLDS auditorium
on May 27. Seniors received their diplomas
and participated in this final salute to them.
Speakers at commencement were Patty
Larkin and Chris Davis. Chosen by their
classmates, these students gave talks on
success and happiness. "Students expressed
our feelings a lot better than any adult
could," said Grant James.
As seniors, clad in caps and gowns, stepped
to the music of the recessional their tears were
hidden by the hopes of their future.

"It was more like a prom should be, you
knew the girl's locker room wasn't right
behind the stringing crepe paper," com-
mented Carol Evans, senior,
Performing at the prom was a four-piece
band, the Chessman Square. Amplifiers
picked up the sounds of a local radio station
causing a late beginning oftheir performance.
"They were better than I expected, but they
were too loudf' said Cliff Uren. The com-
ment "not enough slow songs" was heard
from several guests.

The year . . .
Belo nged to
the class of 1972 by right and tradition.
However, no one seemed to be hung-up about
it, least of all the seniors. Student attitudes
ranged from general apathy to mild ex-
citement as their year dragged on.
". . . I REALLY DREADED
COMING TO SCHOOL."
With frequent attacks of "Senioritis",
seniors found it hard to concentrate and get
interested in their schoolwork. "It got to the
point where I dreaded coming to school,"
said Bob Hargrove.
Many seniors took advantage of the work-
study plan. This enabled students to gain on-
the-job experience, make extra money and get
out at semester or half a day. "I thought it
was a good deal, at least it worked for me,"
stated Bob Preston.
Though regretting term papers, college
entrance exams and awaiting responsibilities,
seniors laughed when they realized they had
met the challenge the juniors had yet to face.

enthusiasm and determination, but at least
most tried to make the best of it.
Tradition was carried out as juniors
received their class rings. Upon receiving
their rings a new dimension of pride.was
evident, not so much in their school, but in the
possession of a class ring.
". . . TOO MANY CHIEFS AND
NOT ENOUGH INDIANS"
Not all juniors were totally satisfied with
the organization of their class. One junior
girl, Linda Thompson, expressed her feelings
in a manner particularly typical of Fort
Osage. "There are too many chiefs and not
enough Indians in our classf'
One chief was Junior Class President
Matthew Mutz, who for the fourth year in a
row was selected to lead his class.
,His election, though, was in doubt when his
name was left off the junior ballot. After
some confusion and two extra presidential
elections, Matt Mutz emerged ahead of his

The athlete is that unique person who, because of personal motivation,
endures physical challenge and discomfort under the banner of high school
sports. Yet this idealistic enyisionment was not always an accurate picture of
the Fort Osage athlete. A Q c
Many students quit sports in the '72, year particularly in football and
track. Player-coach relationships suffered conflict and lack of
communication. Team spirit and school 'spirit were sometimes lacking.
The efforts put out by those concerned were, at times in vain. But the
"jocks,, did bring honor to the Fort. They exchanged their free time for long
tedious hours of practice' practice which paid off in the end i

In a dismal year . . .
Pep rallies were
plagued by a lack of spirit in the student
body, cheerleaders and pep club. Therefore
they were few and far between.
"PEP RALLIES ARE A WASTE
OF TIME AND ENERGYY'
Student opinion of pep rallies ranged from
strong opposition to quiet apathy. "Anymore
people just don't have spirit. Pep rallies are a
waste of time and energy," said Debbie
Cheerleaders did provide some enter-
tainment through skits they performed.
Dressed up in costumes they attempted to
correlate their skits with the sporting event
taking place and involve the student body.
Pep rallies provided students with a break
from the daily routine even though they failed
to accomplish their real purpose. "They are
better than sitting in history class," said

Increased size . . .
S purred the
Pep Club on to a successful year. Free
admission to home games and removal of the
demerit system caused many new girls to join.
Membership also became a pre-requisite for
girls wanting to try out for drill team and
cheerleading. These elements raised
membership to 175, nearly double the
previous year's number.
The Pep Club, though, joined other
organizations in suffering internal conflict.
Club President June LeBarron was relieved
from office during the Pleasant Hill Tourney.
With so many activities it was difficult to find
someone to sponsor every sporting event.
"IT WAS MY WAY OF
SUPPORTING THE GUYS."
But most girls enjoyed the experience of
being in Pep Club. "I don't feel inhibited
about cheering in Pep Club like I would out in
the crowd," said Kathy Curtner. "It was my
way of supporting the guys," said three-year
veteran member Dianne McQuerry.
Despite their problems, the Pep Club did
achieve success by winning the spirit award
given at the Pleasant Hill Tournament.

Enthusiastically. . .
Drill team began
their second year of existence with a nineteen
member squad, but before 'half the year was
over the team had diminished to only eleven
Too many other activities, conflicts with
girls who had to hold jobs to pay expenses,
and lack of interest, seemed to tear the drill
team farther apart.
"It was fun, but practicing every day after
school and performing sometimes three
nights a week took too much out of me. I
didn't have any time for myself or other
interests," stated Shirley Boring.
"THE POMPON GIRLS REALLY
ENTERTAINED FOR A
Improvements over the first year drill team
were noticed by the performers and the fans.
"The pompon girls really entertained this
year for a change," said Frank Neef. "Camp
and more time for practices gave us better
routines and skill in keeping together.
Everyone cooperated and practices were fun
rather than work. We still argued but not as
much," said Jan Duren.
Mrs. Redfern, sponsor of the Indianettes,
said "With any large group of girls there will
be a number of personal and outside conflicts
but the cores of girls left resolved this and
worked well together."
What was . . .
be a winning season turned out to be quite the
opposite as FOHS went 2-8. The '71 Indians
started the season by defeating St. Jo. Le
Blonde 31-22. Later Belton fell to the Tribe.
The biggest reason for the disappointing
season was injuries. With two valuable
players, Tom Barclay and Dennis O'Hara out
for over half of the season, the Indians
couldn't match the tough competition.
Injuries and lack of communication led to
the low morale of the team.
"MOST DIDN'T TAKE
PRACTICE AND GAMES
Ivan .Iudd's feelings came close to many of
the players. "Most of the team didn't take
practice and games seriously. Towards the
end the majority just didn't care."
The "white shoe" epidemic among the
seniors resulted in mixed feelings and an
inactive game for several first-stringers.
The '71 football season proved to be a
building period between the 170 conference
champs and the future of football at the Fort.
"Many underclassmen gained valuable ex-
perience from injuries to key people,', said
Head Coach Jerry Hedger.

Because of the injury-riddled varsity team the

followed a dismal tradition by dropping their
eighth Homecoming game in a row with a 12-
0 loss to the Park Hill Trojans.
The disappointing loss prompted dis-
cussion as to whether the players were con-
centrating on the game or the dance
following. Coach Hedger said, "It would be
nice to get the boys thinking about football
instead of Homecoming, girls, and corsagesf'
At half time, fathers of the queen can-
didates escorted them onto the field where
Julie Van Dyke was crowned 1971
"THE COUNCIL MEMBERS
JUST DON'T GIVE A DAMN."
Following the loss, the students danced to
the sounds of the Goodtime Rebellion. A
colored fountain, silver balls and streamers
set the mood for the darkened gym and
reflected the darkened mood of Student
Council President Phil Gibson. The lack of
enthusiasm of the Student Council was evid-
ent.'Only three of 31 members stayed after
school to help decorate.
"I think the tradition of Homecoming is
swiftly dying out," said Phil. "The Council
members themselves just don't give a damn!"
The minimal attendance at the dance
showed that the students also did not care.
This resulted in a loss of S600 for the dance.
Students, Rhenda ,Huntsucker and Tom
Barclay said, "We just didn't want to go."
The high point of the dance was the band.
Though disrupted with electrical failures,
students jived to the sounds of Santana,
Grand Funk, and Chicago.
So Homecoming '71 came and went and
vanished too quickly to be completely enjoyed
or forgotten by the active- participants.

We had a successful season due to team pride.
We started the season knowing we were
capable of winning, so we did,"
Inexperience hampered the Junior Varsity
team as they posted a 0-7 record.
Ted Parker said, "This was our first year
on the J. V. squad and it was a new thing for
us. Our record wasn't impressive, but I did
think we improved during the season."
The season was highlighted in the con-
ference meet where J.V. placed third. Leading
the Indians was Raymond Chapin who placed
10th over all and first for the Indians.

Beverly Howe, 1971 queen, crowned Robin
Gribble during half time of the game. "I
wasn't expecting it so I was excited when it
happened," said Queen Robin.
The 61-37 win over Truman increased the
enthusiasm of the Courtwarming festivities.
"Playing against Truman was more exciting
than playing a school I donlt have any
connections with," said Norris Shrout,
speaking of his rival friends attending
Truman High School.
The spirit at the dance carried over from
the game even though complaints were heard.
"Once the band got playing they were great
and had a good selection of songs but they
took too many breaks," stated Seana Ballard.
"Since there weren't enough chairs on the
dance floor we had to stand behind the
partition. It made me feel like we werenit part
of the dance," said Jill LeBarron, junior.

With the largest advertising section ever, the yearbook still had its
financial problems. In addition to selling nearly S1500 in advertising, the staff
found it necessary to hold candy and poster sales to meet expenses.
Advertising was one of the few parts of the book which kept the tradition
of past INDIAN LEGENDS. Using student models in a pictorial display
made the ads an integral part of the total yearbook. It was hoped students
would be more apt to look at ads if their friends appeared in themg hence
merchants would receive more for their dollar.
Editors decided more pictures per company would give advertisers a
better chance to show their businesses to readers and it was a prime concern
students be aware that advertisers reduced the cost per book significantly.
