' Classes display concern 1 I ' for fitness in health, gym Dirty gym clothes and getting swea- ty from dressing out became a daily routine in the life of a gym student. Gym class simply did not ,allow enough time for the students to take a shower. As students learned to cope with the lack of time to become presen- table, they enjoyed participating in the various sports that gym offered. "Outside, students have the choice of playing football, softball, soccer, basketball or walking around the track," said Coach Don Coleman. "Inside, students can play badmin- ton, basketball, volleyball and ping- pong," he added. Because the girls' basketball team had the gym first period, first period gym class had to sit in the cafeteria. "It was awesome because on cold, rainy days, we had to go in the cafeteria, and I could finish my 234 O Health!Gym homework," said junior Bill Krause. The introduction of the semester system shortened the time for a stu- dent to complete gym. "Last year, a gym student needed five quarters or one and two-thirds of a year to com- plete gym," explained Coach Col- eman. "This year, a student needs three semesters or one and one-half of a year to complete gym," he continued. Newspaper reports on health related articles and answering ques- tions in the textbook was a part of the daily routine during the week of a health class. On some days, students would have to listen to lectures. Health teachers required students to write a two page report from a choice of difficulties that are present in every student's life. "Students could pick alcoholism, drugs or smok- ing as a topic for their major report," W w..x ":" W x 'llgixv os x gg ,..,, . - iti' if is '5 Q 3 J!! gl l -:..- - ra -f -t ,t . 4 Student blood pressures were checked by a nursing staff during health and government classes.

"My report m on how diabetes is a serious a deadly disease," said Sophomc Daren Hersh. Throughout the semester, studei learned first aid, the proper foods eat, all about diseases and th symptons, the human body and em tional problems. Lectures were also presented various guests. One such guest was psychologist who discussed the em tional problems of his patients. A major change came in t amount of time a student needs complete health was also a result the semester system. "We cc Health I and Health II from last to just Health," said Coach Howard. by Marshall

Vocal skills talents preval indebate, speech classes Famous orator and author Mark Twain once said, "It usually takes more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech." This paradoxical attitude may seem familiar to Speech and Debate students. Speakers are given time to prepare for their assignments, but performing requires poise and quick thinking. "It lSpeech and Debatel improves the student's thinking process," said Debate and Speech II teacher, Mrs. lean Boles. Speech also teaches the student to express himself effectively. One pur- pose of Speech is to allow the student "to acquire the art of oral com- munication," said Department Chair-man, Mrs. Edelweiss Ames. To acquire these characteristics, the students must perform orations on a wide range of subjects. "They do speeches to inform, convince, per- suade, inspire and entertain," added Mrs. Ames. The course's practicality does not end with the acquisition of con- fidence. It also offers lessons that can be used in one's future experiences. "Speech is a very rewarding class. For example, you can make a good impression on a job interview by ap- plying what you learned in Speech," said Sophomore Susan Hillman. Each Speech student has his own reasons for taking the class. One motive is that it is a prerequisite for Debate. Debate is a class which is often misinterpreted as a roomful of people arguing about something of little im- portance. "Debate is not just argu- ment, and it's more structured than discussion," explained Mrs. Boles.
