Early days ol Newton
In early summer of 1871 prospects in Kansas were good for
a good record-setting Texas cattle trade. That summer, more
Ionghorns than ever were headed northward. Texas cattlemen
prepared to trail an estimated 700,000 head to Kansas.
Newton appeared in 1871 as a rival cattle town to Abilene,
with the rail line extended to Newton the long drive was short-
ened by 65 miles.
The town was staked out in 1870 by four men on August
28: Judge R. W. P. lVluse, D. L. Lankin, Samuel J. Crawford
and an unknown merchant from Emporia. The men cut a one-
half section town site that straddled the proposed Santa Fe
Newton remained mounds of dirt and stakes until in Feb-
ruary 1871 when three families located in Newton Township.
Until April and the spring thaw, Newton existed in name only
and in the fertile imagination of its projectors.
With the warm weather wild blue grass grew up around
the stakes marking the town's streets and lots. As it became
known that Newton was to be the major shipping point for
Texas cattle, the town grew, as many shrewd businessness
lVluse returned to the town site to build the railroad land
office. A few days later S. J. Bently unloaded lumber for his
hotel, the Newton House. The National Hotel, owned by
Henry Bulmer, also rose from the prairie. "From this time on
persons arrived daily, until by July 1, there were nearly 100
people living on the town site," wrote llfluse.
A Texas cattle herder was astonished by the mushrooming
town. "We passed Newton in late lVlay. There was a blacksmith
shop, a store, and a dozen or so dwellings, when we cameback
30 days later, it had grown to be quite a large town due to the
railroad. It didn't seem possible but Newton sprang up almost
The Santa Fe intended to tap the cattle trade at Newton.
In the spring of 1871 railroad officials made arrangements
to operate a stockyard at Newton. Joseph lVlcCoy agreed to
supervise A its building and induce Texas drovers to stop their
herds at the newton cattle town, for a percentage of railroad
receipts. Newton's yards were located about a mile and a half
southwest of thetownsite with a capacity of 4000 head. A large
cottage near the stockyard housed lVlc Coy and passing
cattlemen. The stockyards and cottage cost the railroad
nearly S10,000 and were reputed to be the most complete and
convenient of any in Kansas.

EEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E EEEEEEEEEEEE
ln early lVlay over 8000 head of cattle bypassed Newton on
their way to Abilene. In order to capture a large portion of
the cattle trade the Santa Fe raced construction to Newton
and on July 17, 1871, the first passenger train steamed into
town. Daily runs of a mail and passenger train were made
along with a special stock train that left early each morning.
"Going to Newton" became a fad.
IVlost of the town was squeezed into the three blocks north of
the tracks. This section was mainly businesses. The heaviest
residential housing focused three and one-half blocks northeast
of the tracks. This was populated by families with children
who tried to escape locomotive whistles, smoke and the moral
elasticity of Newton's night life. Little construction occured
south of the tracks, only a few lumber yards, dance houses,
and brothels rose up.
Newton glared with freshness, but exuberance and activity
were just as strongly sensed by vistors as by residents. What
had been survey stakes and imagination in April became by
mid-August a bustling market community, an attractive lo-
cation in which to spend and make money.
Along with exuberance, an undercurrent of potential
violence was felt. Nlain street often became "a racing lane for
yelling cowboys and drunken fools" during the peak of New-
ton's cattle trade.
Townsmen saw transients as the chief cause of violence.ln
Newton most transients carried weapons and gunshot accidents
were frequent. ln July a man on horseback fired his pistol by
accident, the ball passed almost entirely through a bystander.
Bill Dow, a gambler and saloon keeper,stopped for a water-
melon ,snack and a chat with Lottie Foster, an "unfortunate
girl." When Dow's friend "Little lVlike" began throwing water-
melon rinds at Lottie, she seized a stick and chased him.
Unable to catch him, Lottie turned on Dow, striking 'him with
a heavy key. Dow swore and threw her on the ground, where-
upon Lottie ran into the brothel, returning with a pistol, with
which she promptly shot Dow three times, injuring him.
Boisterous transients and an abundance of weapons were not
the only reasons for violence in Newton. Cattle town business-
men feared rampant violence, but being faced with unruly cattle
traders, they were unable to establish an effective police force.
To safeguard their investments from riot and arson they sought
restrictions on violence. As the cowboy was a substantial part
of the town s economic interchange the restrictions were such
that a cowboy s spending would not be hampered in any way.
The early city council meetings of cattle towns resulted in
ordinances which curbed violence and provided for hiring a
police force. ln Newton such legal safeguards were impossible,
as. the town did not meet the lVlarch 1 deadline for incorpor-
ation. With neither a mayor or council to draft ordinances
Eor policemen to enforce regulations, Newton was governed

Reckless transients, an abundance of firearms, and weak law
enforcement provided a backdrop for homicide in Newton.
The town's most sensational acts of violence, however, cannot
be attributed only to lawless transients and lack of law enforce-
ment. The most notorious episode stemmed from the explosive
tensions between transients and townsmen. While merchants
catered to the cowboy, the townspeople resented him.
Potential and actual violence posed a threat to the security
of life in cattle towns. Northern confederate herders tended to
be clannish and were "easily roused to a kind of ethnocentric
defensiveness." Texans were at the mercy of exploitative
cattle town merchants. The cowboy's only source of revenge
was threat of arson and riot. In Newton the antagonism led
to tragic results.
During the second weekof August a Texas drover, "Captain"
French had lVlike lVlcCluskie arrested for garrotting. As French
was unable to prove the charges, McCIuskie went free.
At a railroad bond election on August 11, lVlcCluskie and
Will Bailey were appointed special police. They fought about
the conditions of lVlcCluskie's arrest and releasex Noimmediate
action was taken, but that night Bailey and his men followed
lVlcCluskie to a saloon, already drunk, Bailey demanded that
lVlcCluskie set up a drink. Upon his refusal a fight broke out.
Bailey ran and crouched in the shadows. As lVlcCluskie appeared
Bailey shot and missed. lVlcCluskie's shot was more accurate
and Bailey died of his wounds. I
Bailey had been so offensive that lVlcCluskie escaped and no
attempt was made to apprehend him, nor was it desired by the
people. However this did not include Texans. Bailey, reputed
to have killed two men in a brawl, was still popular with his
men. These men stood together and swore revenge. To make
matters worse McCluskie was added to the permanent police
force. NlpCluskie decided to leave town.
Hugh Anderson led the avenging Texans. On Saturday,
August 19, lVlcCluskie returned. Near midnight the Hide Park
and Perry Tuttle dance houses began emptying out and men
walked in groups toward town. At one o'clock the Texans
closed in on lVlcCluskie. Anderson accosted him and said,"l
will blow the top of your head off," and promptly did so,
but not before lVlcCluskie wounded him. All havoc broke
loose and by morning eleven men were wounded, six died of
An inquest was held the following morning. The six man jury
found Anderson guilty of first degree murder. A warrent for
Anderson's arrest was issued but never served, as his friends
prevented it. The Newton lVlassecure was one of many incidents
that plaqued Newton.
For a combination of reasons Newton's cattle season was un-
usually bloody. Along with the birth and growth pains of a new
community, transients and inadequate law enforcement created
an atmosphere in which assaults and homicides occured with
grim regularity. The cattle trade and its accompanying violence
helped mold a reputation for Newton, which frustrated resi-
dents. Because of this many people resented the railroad.
In July city election of 1882 the anti-cattle force triumphed.
Wichita secured the Santa Fe cattle trade in the summer of '82.
Newton's loss of the cattle trade also meant the loss of prosti-
tutes, gamblers, and desperadoes who had helped shape the
town's notorious reputation, as they left much of Newton's
unsavory reputation went with them.

debate are," Patty Bernhardt, junior, said.
Debate consisted of a team of two arguing affirmative
on an issue against another team of two arguing nega-
tive. This year's topic had to do with commercial
Debate members competed at tournaments on
weekends from the end of September to the first of
January. Students did well, taking third at Shawnee
Mission West, third at Shawnee Heights in Topeka
and third at regionals.
"We probably spent 65 percent of our time on
debate," Bernhardt said. Students spent time at Wichita
State University Library for materials, calls to Washing-
ton D.C. for recent information and attending debate
Although debate is "a lot more in depth," Bernhardt
said, "forensics is more individualized."
Forensics has a lot of different areas to excel and
In Extemporaneous Speaking, each competitor got
a list of three copies from three recent magazines.
They chose one and wrote and presented a four-seven
minute speech on that subject.
Poetry had a seven minute time limit and included
an introduction to a poetry selection.
In Original Oration a student took a current topic
and wrote and memorized a speech. It had to affect the
majority of the nation, be persuasive, and come up with
a solution. The time limit was seven to ten minutes.

"My goal is to strive for excellence. In doing so I have
found that everything else pretty much falls in place,"
Mr. Dwight Beckham, music department head, said.
Instrumental music was basically divided into three
concert bands: Orchestra, Symphonic Band and Wind
Ensemble. These groups practiced daily as they rehears-
ed for concerts and prepared for contests.
Orchestra included all the string players enrolled in
band. According to Mr. Gerald Kiger, Orchestra instruc-
tor, "Some type of music will benefit every student and
the instrumental music program provides an outlet for
musicians in high school to perform and is important
training for young musicians."
Symphonic Band is the largest group and worked to-
ward performance by improving balance in instrumenta-
tion and continuing their progress in the performing

"l think that this year's Stage Band is one of the
strongest bands that we've had in the recent years,"
said lVlr. Francis Toews, marching and stage band
There are 21 people in Stage Band. They spend
six to eight weeks preparing for a concert. "We play
jazz, rock and blues. The blues can either be jazz
or rock," added Toews.
Stage Band was a guest band at the Bethel Fall
Jazz Concert. This was a first for the Stage Band.
"Some select members from the Stage Band part-
icipated in the AVL Honor Stage Band. Newton
hosted this event on March 9.
"The lVlarching Band is striving for a slow, steady
improvement," said Toews.
The Marching Band, along with 69 other bands
from Kansas and Missouri, performed during the
halftime-in the KU-Louisville football game. They
also marched in a parade in downtown Lawrence.
The 95 band members spend almost two weeks
75 7 2
putting together a halftime show, with three prac-
tices out on the football field at Athletic Stadium.
"The lVlarching Band is continuing to improve
the quality of the band," commented Toews.

arming their credit
"You've gotta get their attention before you can slip in
some subject matter," said Mr. Chuck Engel. He was
speaking of his nutty actions during class lectures. Engel
taught five of eleven classes: Chemistry l, Chemistry ll,
Applied Chemistry, and Physics I and ll.
Chemistry dealt with structure of materials and the
changes they undergo. Chemistry II was for the student
who had an interest in further lab study of chemistry.
Physics I dealt with mechanics, properties of heat, matter
and sound. Physics ll dealt with the study of light, elec-
tricity, magnetism, electronics and atomic physics. Applied
Chemistry was like Chemistry I with the emphasis more
on the practical applications of chemistry.
Biology was taught by Mrs. Cindy Harms, Miss Peggy
Thomas and Mr. Bud Akin. This course dealt with plants
and animals in their relation to the welfare of humans and
to each other.
The course studying the generalities of the physical
sciences such as chemistry and physics was Physical
Science, taught by Miss Thomas and Ms. Marty Kaufman.
Units covered included structure and reactions of matter,
color and energy.
Material such as reproduction, aging, death, physiology
of the brain, sleep, dreams, transplants and implants was
studied in life and death science taught by Mrs. Harms.
Two courses taught by Mr. Bud Akin and Ms. Kaufman
were Zoology and Physiology. Animal structure, growth
and classification was covered in Zoology. At least half of
class time was spent dissecting. Animals dissected were a
cat, pigeon and shark. Various functions of the body such
as digestion, metabolism and nutrition were studied in
Aeronautics, taught by Ms. Kaufman, introduced
subject matter such as aerodynamics, meteorology,
navigation and federal aviation rules.
Only a small handful of students took science courses.
Mr. Engel commented that this was probably due to the
lack of a serious approach to high school in general.
Students didn't want to work too hard and they didn't
want bad grades, according to Engel.

Agriculture is an important industry in the Newton
community, in the state of Kansas, and in the nation. Ag-
riculture is our most basic industry.
Job opportunities in agricultural related occupations are
greater than ever before, thus, there is a greater need of
education in the agriculture field.
Presently the following classes are offered: Introduction
to Agriculture, Production Agriculture, and Agri-business,
all of which are taught by Mr. Delbert Schrag. Farm
management is another course in the curriculum but was
not offered this year.
FFA lFuture Farmers of Americal is a club offered for
Kelly Mathews V
M ath ews
those students who chose to study vocational agriculture.
The main requirement for these classes is that the
student must be involved in a farming program, or be
employed by an agri-business firm.
Awareness of the educational needs and job opportuni-
ties available in the agriculture field is one of the many
goals ofthe agriculture classes. Others include providing
a background for which students can build on, regardless
which field of agriculture they choose to follow. And a
final goal they hope to accomplish is to teach the student
how to lead, follow, cooperate, be responsible, and to
develop confidence in themselves.

More than ' hop'
ln the past, the common reference to shop class
brought visions of woodworking benches and projects.
In 1980-81, industrial education involved two wood-
working coursesg but there was much more.
"I think it's something everybody should take a little
bit of," Bobby Church, junior, said.
For starters, each student had a basic prerequisite.
Introduction to Industrial Technology, taught by the
I-ed. staff, covered four areas for nine weeks each. They
were: woods and plastics, metals, visual communications
and power and energy.
Woods, materials, processes and techniques used in
machine woodworking were the emphasized areas in
Mr. Frances Funk's two woodworking classes.
A basic study of the metals industry was covered in
the General Metals course taught by Mr. Ken Franz.
Mechanical Drawing, the fundamental course in
drawing, and the more advanced Machine Drawing
and Architectural Drawing classes were the selections
taught by Mr. Maurice Benninga.

several field trips throughout the year.
Foods were courses offered at three different levels.
Foods I, Foods ll, and Advanced Foods were classes of-
fered for one semster. Foods I and ll were basically
the study of nutrition, meal planning, food shopping
and food preparation. Advanced Foods was an
occupational approach to cooking at home. Foreign
foods were prepared and served in their cuisines. Ad-

Positive teaching attitudes and students progressing
were the feelings of the Spanish, French, German and
Learning Lab teachers this year.
Spanish classes have been gaining in popularity the
last few years. This year there were enough students
enrolled to have a Spanish lll class.
"There are increasing job opportunities, even around
here. That's why we're concentrating more on speaking,
not writing," Mr. Joe Ramirez, Spanish instructor, said.
Along with regular class work, the students had a
Christmas party and attended a play at Wichita State.
French I students made a notebook on cities in
France and learned about geography. The French ll
classes did much the same along with learning French
history, in addition with adding language skills.
"Each year I think I demand more of the students.
Each year they do more work and cover more mat-

ment this year after being dropped at semester in
1942 because of World War ll and anti-Nazi feelings
in the community.
Taught by Ms. Michelle Friesen-Carper, plans were
made to add a German club by next year.
"Teaching German is really enjoyable. It's a real
good language to learn especially with the German
background in Newton."
Students in learning lab may be enrolled for a max-
imum of three hours of an instructional day. The
curriculum is geared to meet the individual needs of
the exceptional child.
Ms. Debra Reinhardt, learning lab instructor, said,
"It's a real positive experience here. You really feel
like you're helping the ' students."

Anew look was taken on by the Media Center over the
summer that made it almost impossible to take books
without checking them ot first.
An alarm system costing around 310,000 was installed
because of the increasing disappearence of books and mag-
azines. "It wasn't just the older books that were taken, it
was the newer more expensive ones," explained Mrs.
Gladys Niles, head librarian.
Last year alone over 1,075 books and magazines were
taken. It had been increasing every year.
The system worksby sounding a loud alarm when a
book is taken out ot the library that hasn't been checked
out and desensitized. The gate will then lock, making it
impossible to escape with the book.
The system was put in for two major reasons. One
being the amount it was costing tax payers to replace
stolen books. The other was so materials will be on hand
for studnets when needed.
Entering the library had remained the same, but instead
of being able to exit our all three doors this year students
had only one door to exit through.
The discomfort of only one exit hasn't seemed to cause
many problems. In September alone over 500 more books
were checked out than the year before. This also shows
books are being checked out the proper way making it
easier to get materials back in the library for other stu-
dents to use.

"lt wasn't caused by anything the administration did.
The students were the motivation factor, " said Mr. Don
He was talking about the surge of school spirit during
the 1980-81 school year. It was felt that over the six to
seven past years students had been maturing.
The new found heighth of maturity showed in many
ways. One was the amount of spirit shown by the student
Mrs. Pearl Kurr, vice principal in charge of activities,
felt that, "this maturity was evident during Homecoming
week as there was no destruction of other classes hall
decorations. There was also a lot of effort and involve-
Willson felt that this maturity was due to the students
In order to be more familiar with the parents of stu-
dents there were several informal coffees. These gave the
parents a chance to meet the adminstrators on an informal
level. It also gave parents a chance to ask questions about
little things that a student might not know the answer to,
Willson felt that there was a good atmosphere at these.
This was WilIson's first year as principal. One of the few
changes he made was to forbid the use of smokeless to-
bacco products. Students gave him a hard-time, in jest, for
a couple of days then accepted the policy. Students later
expressed appreciation for the policy.
There has been a variety of positions each of the admini-
strators has been employed. Mr. Willson taught math,
was assistant principal in charge of athletics and is cur-
rently principal. Mrs. Kurr has taught in a one and two
room school. She has also taught reading, which is one of
her hobbies. Mrs. Brookshier was a business teacher pre-
vious to her present job of assistant principal in charge of
vocational studies. Mr. Galen Schmitz was new to NHS
this year. He is assistant principal in charge of athletics.
He previously worked at Bishop Carroll as assistant pri-
ncipal. "There is a more casual atmosphere here than at
Bishop Carroll. The kids are really friendly," said Mr.
Schmitz. He continued to say that the whole school was
very down to earth.
"Mr. Willson gave us responsibility which we were ex-
pected to fulfill on our own," Mrs. Kurr said. ','There was
more independence given to us by Mr. Willson than by
several past administrators."

"Projects in my classes were too hard my first year, last
year, because I was fresh out of college and expecting
college work," said Nlrs. Jeralyn Hill, art teacher. "This
year the projects are geared more for high school stu-
lVlrs. Hill is in her second year of teaching and her

During the first nine weeks of ceramics the basic fun-
damentals of handling and working with clay, which
includes pinch pot and coil, was covered.
"The students also view several films and take notes to
hand in, this tells me if they got the information," said
Hill. The second nine weeks the students learn to use a
potter wheel, load the kiln and glazing. "Basically, the
second semester they are on their own to do projects."
ln Crafts I four projects are assigned in the first sem-
ester. The project are all different mediums. Later the
students are allowed to do any type of project they want.
Crafts ll was a class for students who had completed
Crafts l and wanted to concentrate on individual interests
and strengths in textiles and metalsmithing.
Art I was taught by Mrs. Hill and IVlr. Larry Preston.
This course was a basic exploration into art, which in-
cluded painting, graphic art, design, sculpture and drawing.
This class was a prerequisite to all art classes.
Art ll, taught by lVlr. Preston, was an extension of
experiences and areas studied in Art l.
Another class taught by lVlr. Preston was Advanced
Drawing and Painting. This course involved work in water-
color, tempra, oils, acrylics and mixed media.

Business classes have gained student interest and
Even though none of these classes are required, the
enrollment response and student involvement in the
business department increased. A variety of classes
were offered from the business department.
Typing I taught beginning students to type by
touch from 30 to 60 words a minute. Typing ll
improved skills and provided experience working on
the job and other practical application through
practice sets. Individual rights and laws as American
citizens were covered in Business Law. Personal'
Finance consisted of organizing an individual finan-
cial plan. Shorthand and Notehand were two classes
which could be beneficial to students who are plann-
ing an office career or college. Office Training was a
practical class for anyone interested in entering the
business world. A variety of business, office and
employment techniques were covered. A course
similar to the office training class was Office Ma-
chines! Introduction to Data Processing. Bookkeeping
and Accounting were classes covering office skills as
well as personal skills, Field trips were also included
in the business curriculum. One trip included a tour
of the Fourth National Bank and the Scott Rice
Business Supplies company in Wichita.
A change being considered for next year is the
addition of an Accounting II class.
. lVlrs. Karen Both said, "There are always going
to be office jobs available. Students can learn the
skills required for these jobs by taking the courses
offered from the business department."

Mathematics may not be for everyone but the
basics of math are important skills for everyone to
Arithmetic has gained a reputation of being
complicated, time consuming and confusing.
Although math requires a lot of thought and home-
work, learning the basics could be considered
essential to one's education. Only one math
credit is required in order to graduate but it has
usually been advised to take more. Many math
classes were offered so a student could choose a
course to gain general information or to prepare
for later mathematical use.
General math was basically an arithmetic review
that dealt with practical and consumer applications
f mathematics as well as an introduction to
Igebra and geometry. Laboratory math has a
special class for the student with difficulties in the
mathematic field. Algebra included the beginning
study of real numbers using variables while
geometry consisted of logical reasoning and the
principles and properties of such objects as lines
points, or planes. For further continuation
intuitive geometry and advanced algebra were also
offered. Other courses included consumer math,
trigonometry, analytic geometry and pre-calculus.
A class, computer science, was added this year.
This computer course taught students to write
and develope programs. Many students enrolled
in the class agreed that the class, although at times
was confusing, was interesting and hope that their
computer techniques learned will be useful in the
future. Mr. Dan Randall stated that the purpose
of the computer science class was "To familiarize
in particular with programing in basic language."

Social Studies isn't just studying government, history
and economics, it also offers classes to help students
In 1975 a new class was started in the Social Science
Department by Mr. Dave Deutschendorf. The class
consisted of 12 students, trouble makers, who attended
the class one hour a day for nine weeks. They called it
Life Coping Skills.
The class caught on and when lVIrs. Jan Reber took
over the class she soon had to drop her social economics
and geography classes and teach only Life Coping Skills.
lVlr. Jack Thaw also began to teach it.
In 1980 a new class was started in conjunction with
Life Coping Skills. lt was named Life Coping ll. "l
wrote a proposal and showed it
to the school board,"
Myles Newberry I
said Reber, "and we started the class this year."
Life Coping Skills ll consisted of a number of act-
ivities. Students kept daily journals on feelings and
their lifestyles, they had internship, which consisted of
visiting a child, elderly or troubled person for a certain
amount of time. Group discussion, and video tapes
were part of classroom activities. One of the most excit-
ing activities for students was to visit the Kansas State
Institution of Reform in Hutchinson. It was the first
time students had been allowed into the prison for a
number of years.
Teaching Life Coping isn't always easy. "You can't
demand an answer like you can in a history class be-
cause in coping we are dealing with feelings," said

SOCIAL SCIENCE 41
A credit you need!
With 10 English teachers at NHS plenty of English
is dished out daily. From English I to College Prep,
students get what they need to carry on in life-the
parts of grammar, language, speech and literature
from Shakespeare to Poe.
"English is association with students, a chance to ex-
plore ideas in areas of literature and composition."
Mr. Don Colborn, English teacher, said.
"An 'on the agenda' thought for the future is maybe
to change English Ill from half of a credit to a full
credit for the junior year," Colborn said.
Changes this year included there isn't extra work or
night sessions for AP English. This year they have AP
seminars at night and then at the end of the year they
give a test for the whole seminar on what was covered.
The class can be used for nine hours credit for En-
Other English credits included CP English, or College
Prep, mostly just for seniors to get ready for college,
study separated literary works,"Hamlet," "Canterbury
Tales" and other literature.
:E or 1i's.z'i:r.'.f
Individual Reading was a different class because there
is no class structure as far as assignments except the
student always had to be reading a book and when they
finished a book they discussed it with the instructor in
Novel was like Individual Reading but all they read is
novels, no short stories or any other literature.
The English courses I, II, III mostly included the
basics in grammar, literature, speech, communications in
the instructors own way of bringing in out to their
Newton High had three new teachers for the 1980-81
school year. Miss Robin Steverson, Miss Laura Ice and
Mr. Jay Myers were added in the department.
"E nglish is the study of customs that have developed,
getting to work with students and watching them learn.
I feel good when students enjoy what they are learn-
ing." Miss Laura lce, English l, said.
What English is to Mr. Alden Allbaugh is through
reading, literature practice, communication students
become more skilled in the use of the language we live

Taking the reins
In the past two years the journalism department has
grown used to change as four different advisers have
With each change the work habits became different.
Each change encouraged staffers to do more of their
work independently. To work independently takes dedi-
IVlr. Jay Myers, a former teacher at Ness City High
School, said, "The facility here is really beautiful, the
administration fair and caring- both were reasons l chose
Newton. l was also looking for a new situation."
Mr. Myers found that for sure.
As would be expected there were some changes in the
department. After the fall, deadlines no longer lasted
past midnight, but they were just as fierce. Some dead-
. .j ig 5 ,f"'1v,!ff"
lines were met by working at the homes of staffers.
Both yearbook and newspaper staffs write their copy
and do most of their own typesetting. Pasting up copy,
cutlines and pictures to a pre-planned layout board are
chores that take much time and determination.
"lt takes a lot of dedication and caring to make our
publications really something! It takes not just a few
dedicated people, everyone has got to pull their weight.
If they don't it blows everything. lt hurts everyone's
attitude and that counts a lot. You really have to have
pride in what you do. The satisfaction comes later when
you see how great the publication is and realize all the
time spent bickering with photographers and other staf-
fers was all worth seeing your page and being proud to
say, 'This is my pagel' " Carol Hinton, junior yearbook

When someone mentions gym do you think of
running laps, shooting baskets, calisthenics, and a
chance to escape the daily load of homework?
Although it may be taken for granted, physical ed-
ucation was important this year because students were
taught basic skills and rules of activities which could be
used in and out of school, whether recreationally or
career-wise. According to Mrs. Terri Elder, department
head, "the main purpose of class is to teach the students
about themselves and to prepare them for a lifetime of'
Every student is required to have two P.E. credits.
Even though restricted somewhat by equipment and
facilities, NHS gym offered a wide variety of activities:
basketball, flag football, baseballfsoftball, volleyball
tennis, badminton, swimming, soccer, gymnastics! tum-
bling, conditioning! weight work, golf, archery, first aid,
and recreational games such as table tennis, shuffle-
board and bowling.
This year's teaching staff included Elder, Mrs. Jan
Wilkey and three new teachers: Mr. Don Cameron, Mr.
Tom Kiernan and Miss Edie Meier.
A national requirement which was set this year was
that all physical education classes were to be coed.
Each teacher chose the type of activities and units to be
covered according to personal preference, ability and
experience. Mrs. Elder stated that all the teachers
try to work in at least two individual sports and two
team sports into their curriculum. Basically, their
grading systems were also similar: 50 percent on parti-
cipation and effort and 50 percent on skills or written
Freshmen and sophomores were required to take a
full year but sophomores had the option of taking a
semester of swimming as partial fulfillment. For juniors
and seniors a semester of P.E. activity was offered.
Gym was a chance to escape the everyday school rou-
tine and an opportunity to learn physical education and
the activities it offered.

54 FALL PLAY
urklng hard pays off
Opening night was cool and crisp, the perfect at-
mosphere for hyper actors and nervous crew members. ln
the auditorium the light dimmed, the audience became
quiet, tension and suspense rose until the orchestra played
the first strains of the overture. The curtain opened and
it began for the first time. Q
"The Music lVlan" by Meredith Willson involved over
200 students. There were 47 extras, 23 orchestra
members, 26 crew members, eight flag team members,
nine teachers and 28 lead actors. There were also the
classes of stagecraft, art, carpentry and woodworking in-
volved. For many it was a first time experience. For
others it was old hat as they were taking part in their
second or third production.
With so many people there was a need for 300 or more
costumes. This caused a bit of a problem as the drama
department doesn't own that many outfits from a single
time period. Costume supervisors Jeri Watkins and Kelli
Wondra gathered costumes from several Kansas schools,
including Concordia High School, Emporia State Uni-
versity, Wichita State University, Friends University,
Bethel College, Wichita Heights High School, Wichita West
High School. Keeping everything straight as to what came
from where was a big job but the only alternative to all
this chaos was renting the costumes at large expense.
"Keeping the costumes organized was a big responsibility,
but after I got them organized each actor or actress was
responsible for their own costumes," Jeri Watkins said.
Each night the production had its mishaps. The first
night was full of dropped lines as any opening night is.
At the second performance a piece of the stage set fell.
Flats generally float to the ground, but this one had a
balcony attatched. lt became unbalanced when three
girls stepped to far forward. It fell with a loud crash and
created more havic than injury. The most serious injury
was a sprained ankle.
In spite of the problems the production went well on
the third night, without a hitch. lVlrs. Rhondalyn Berroth,
director, was pleased with the production and said, "lt
was a great experience, everyone worked terrifically
hard." They were taking part in their second or third

"lt was the best week we've had since I've been here.
It went very smoothly. One reason why is because
everyone worked together, and helped each other
all they could," said IVlr. Charlie Triggs, Stuco adviser.
Senior class was the overall winning class for the
week. The freshmen were second, juniors following
with third and the sophomores brought up the end.
Sue Humphrey and Vince Martinez were crowned
Homecoming Queen and King. Other finalists for
Queen were Amy Buller and Desiree Thompson. The
King finalists were Barry lVlcAnulty and Joel Koerner.
Monday marked the beginning of Homecoming week
with Grubby Day. Tuesday followed with Ftailer Day
when everyone wore black and gold t-shirts supporting
their fall sports. Wednesday was the Roaring 20s day
and Thursday everyone dressed up in nice clothes, that
is until the parade and bonfire later that night. Friday
came with the annual Spirit Assembly followed by the
Homecoming game and dance.
"There was a lot more unity among classes. I think
the kids did a great job, the classes and Student Council
were more organized and there was less bickering among
and within the classes," added Triggs.
Pride. support. spirit!
Stuco and the entire student body made Winter Sports
Week '81 a great success!
"l feel like student involvement was the best I've ever
witnessed this year," Clay Anderson, Stuco president said.
"Everybody showed their active support and spirit during
the week, and class pride was stupendous!"
Stuco planned various activities for the week, all of
which many students took an active interest in. "The
Main Event" with Barbara Streisand and Ryan O'Neal was
shown Monday during sixth and seventh hours. And to
arouse the spirit and enthusiasm for the upcoming
activities, it was also a day for individuals to wear favorite
The atmosphere was great as the gym was filled with
spirit and excitement, Tuesday at the always long-awaited
Winter Olympics. A mass of students in Railer shirts could
be seen. Those three important words - pride, support and
spirit, really shined through.
The classes and faculty competed against one another in
many events such as lay-up football, dropping a clothespin
in a milk jug, a penny drop, bouncing a basketball into a
trashcan, a flyswatter-peanut relay, passing a grapefruit,
and passing Iifesavers on toothpicks. The overall score in
the Olympics honored the seniors with first place, juniors-
second, faculty-third, sophomores-fourth, and freshmen-
Wednesday students had a chance to show their crea-
tivity with ingenuity day.
The extreme sound intensity was a bit calmer at the
coronation assembly Thursday. The 12 semifinalists were
Clay Anderson, Ronnie Hamm, David Hanna, Brian
Preheim, Doug Reber, Bryan' Unruh, Bev Barr, Nancy
Crispino, Jenny Goering, Caroline Mixon, Diana Penner,
and Brenda Siemens. Anderson, Preheim, Reber, Crispino,
Penner and Siemens were the six chosen as the Winter
Sports Royalty 1981, with Clay Anderson and Diana
Penner reigning as King and Queen.
Derived from the tradition the crown, medal and rose
bearers were the small children of Newton faculty. The
seven children were: Lenny Joe Ellis, son of Leonard and

Grabb1n good grub 5
ln an attempt to combat the boredom and harsh
realities of classes and studying, students sought to
relieve their tensions and satisfy their stomachs while
enjoying themselves at Druber's Donut Shop.
Druber's provided students with fresh donuts, drinks,
and a warm atmosphere to socialize with friends.
lVlr. Wayne Swartzendruber, owner of Druber's,
opens his shop at midnight every night except Saturday
and Sunday. Druber's attracts not only high school
students, but the college crowd roams in at early hours
of the morning also. Y ,I
Druber's starts early in the day preparing for the busy
day. An average working daV begins at 2 a.m. 1
and 10 p.m. Fridays, with Saturday being the busiest 41,9 X
day of the week.
The process of making donuts includes weighing the
precise amount of flour to make the dough, which must
raise 45 minutes before going on the cutting board,
which cuts about six dozen donuts at a time. About
300 pounds of flour is used per day and about 200-
400 donuts are sold per day, in 15-20 different kinds
and lots of flavors.
Swartzendruber originally lived in Hesston and owned
a donut shop in El Dorado. He drove back and forth
from Hesston to El Dorado. He then bought the shop in li
Newton from the present owners of Wib and Edna's.
He improved its efficiency in equipment and layout.
Druber's doubled in size and sales.
Swartzendruber's new meat pies were basically
a hobby and a dream. He enjoyed creating new tools
and systems for making the pies. He dreams one day 2
to sell his ideas to someone who's really interested. 3
Druber's was a lot of work at first but now Swart-
zendruber can relax since hiring Connie Kitchen, who E
works full time as manager. She has worked there four
years, the last two she has spent managing. Swart-
zendruber has come to rely on her and the help of 15
other employees, one of which is Kent Richards,
Druber's only high school employee. Richards' day
begins at 4:30 a.m.
Swartzendruber owns SuperSpeed Printing also, next
door to his shop. He has no other future plans of

"lt was pretty nice, pretty lucky l guess," Larry Reber,
senior '65, said in the newspaperthat year. He was speaking
of the fact that he crowned both queens.
Pieces of trivia and history can be found in the files of
the high school morgue, the storage area of Newtonians
and Railroaders from years past. The newspaper and year-
book have a long history.
Newspaper production began in 1922 with an edition
coming out bi-monthly. Magnum Fox, '22, was editor.
This series didn't last long as it ended and a new series
began in 1930. The name became The Weekly Newtonian.
Change filled the first years. Starting out, the paper was
five columns with no pictures no ads and small headlines.
Photographs were added late in the '30-31 school year. ln
1944-45 spot color was reintroduced and became a normal
occurance in the paper around holidays. For added var-
iety the printing was sometimes done in red or green or
on colored paper with black ink.
1932 brought the presence of ads. ln 1937 headlines
became bigger and pictures more frequent. Spot color
silhouettes were featured on.special occasions in 1940-41.
Four page issues were a standard until 1941 with the first
issue of six pages. This was a year of change. The flag
became a square with a train and tracksp a new type style
and head style were introduced. The heads became more
streamlined and the paper more modern in appearance.
This trend toward modernization lasted one year. In
1941-42 the style reverted'back to the style of 1930-40.
Slowly more photographs and ads showed up. ln 1943-48
the last issue lMay 11l was dedicated to and about the
seniors. A train was incorporated into the flag in 1944.
A step toward modernization came in 1945-46 when the
flag began to float and change sizes but not styles. The
Newtonian remained unchanged until 1954-55 when it
bacame tabloid in size.
Several years a senior summary was published. ln
'59-'60 it was titled, "After graduation what next?...
College, Career, Marriage." In '63-'64 it was "End of
the line for class of '64."
Yearbook publication began in 1908 with a book
called The Afterglow. This book was a yearbook con-
taining individual pictures of seniors and group shots
of underclassmen. The unusual feature of this book is
the commencement program was included early in the
Yearbooks were produced rather sporadically! 1908,
1909, 1914, 1920. Beginning with 1920 books were
produced every two years. With senior books out in
some of the odd years. 1927 marked the start of con-
secutive books. In 1930 no book was printed. Because
of a lack of money and the war, no book was produced
again until 1945. From that point books have been pro-
duced every year.
62 FEATU RES
Names of the book ranged from "The Afterglow,"
1908, High School Annual, 1909, The Newtone, 1914,
Rodeo, 1920, Newtonian, for six years 22-29 and since
1945 "The Railroader."
Theme is idea that the book is built and centered
around. Over the -years themes have been varied but
a trend has been toward the railroad. Sketchbook, Along
the trail, Mid-Century, The Station Where ..., And Dimen-
sions are themes from past-books.
For many years underclassmen either had no pictures
or were only in a group shot. ln exception to this was
individual pictures in 19245 the first group shots, which
became the norm, appeared in 1950. Individual pictures
for underclassmen became the accepted trend in 1967 as
classes were becoming larger.
Through the years. many advisers have crossed the
threshhold of the journalism room. Mrs. Susan Kaufman
was the longest at Newton High with 14 years. Following
with a record of six years is Mr. Wilbur Smith. Mr. Alden
Albaugh has taught here for many years and held many
positions including journalism adviser twice he taught
this class for a total of five years, '49-'51 and '58-'59.
On the other side there is the fact that in the past there
years five teachers have come and gone, Mrs. Vicki Cook,
Miss Laura Widmer, Mrs. Jan Mitchell, and Mrs. Ann
Herbert, and Mr. Jay Myers.
Paperback books were a standard for yearbook covers
until 1955 when the first hardback book was printed.
Capturing every person in a candid is a difficult task.
ln 1974 the staff was able to get 98'Z, of the student
Color processing is an extra feature that costs a large
In 1972 the staff was able to add this extra touch and
enlarge to a college size book.
Looking back through old yearbooks and newspapers
is a way to look at the past, a past that included many of
the parents and teachers of today's students.
Mrs. Joy Shirer graduated in '55 along with Mr. Larry
Mathews and Mr. Jim McFarlane. Mr. Jack Thaw was a
state wrestler who took second. He, John Popin and
Jake Sacks shaved their heads in '68 to show dedication
Many fashionable things of yesterday are returning to
the fashion scene, shoes, shirts, skirts and dresses, are com-
ing back into style.
Although styles are repeating themselves prices are not.
In 1956 a Smith-Corona cost S60-375. A party dress from
Guranger's cost S14.95. As recently as '64-'65 a Caravel
watch cost S12.95. These prices may not seem so un-
usual until they are compared with today's inflated
prices, a typewriter is at least 3150, a nice dress S50-9575,
watches cost at a minimum 850.

Jobs essential for many seniors: college funds
Jobs are an essential part of many seniors lives. Many
are becoming conscious of the fact that college expenses
are high and they are going to have to help carry the finan-
cial load. Others simply want some pocket money do they
can buy the little things they want for themselves. Some
may be making payments on a car or stereo. Although the
reasons vary, the basic intent is to make money.
While earning this money, a person lives through many
experiences while helping shape into a responsible adult
worker. Each experience has a different impact.
Employers generally have a high opinion of high school
"We have employed high school students on a part-time
basis for 20 years," Dr. Cyril Brown, co- owner of Town
and Country Animal clinic, said. "Most high school stu-
dents do a satisfactory job for us."
Although a few workers are lazy, Ms. Becky Stineman,
manager of Katydid, said, "Usually those hired through
school programs such as OE or HERO are better trained.
Being graded each nine weeks makes them work harder."
Although jobs are diverse, the most common job in
Newton is a clerk's job. Dillon's employs approximately
60 students between both stores. Downtown merchants
basically hire one to three students per store.
Some students venture to Wichita for jobs earning good
money as Elyce Cox, senior, did, getting S5-6 hourly with
Most students are dedicated to their jobs but they still
"Watching Donna Mohrbacher make cherry cokes and
limeades during sidewalk sales was very humorous," Mr.
Ken Horst, owner of Horst Pharmacy, said. "The people
,got their drinks, but, the fountain was a mess and some-
times so was she." The downtown businessmen enjoyed
to have a good time. A situation described by
was about two of his kennel boys who were
school, who started using 50 CC pistol grip
water guns, attacking employees and having a
her antics so much that they voted her "most entertain-
ing" of all Horst's fountain girls.
"When I was empIoyed," Pete Kemme, senior, said,
"another guy and I used to have a contest of setting the
buttons on the registers so other clerks would ring up huge
over-rings. One night I was responsible for S270 worth of
Life in the working world is fun but it is also full of oc-
casional bad experiences.
"My second day of work at Buy-4-Less, I was checking
out a lady with twins. She gave them some coins to go get
some gum from the gumball machine, which are located by
the doors. One of the girls dropped her gumball, as she
went to pick it up, someone came in through the doors
and pinched off the end of her finger. The kid started
bawling, and the mother got hysterical at the sight of the
bloody finger," Donna Mohrbacher said.
The experience of'Cathy Monares was not bloody but
it was just as bad. "My worst experience was when I
accidentally gave someone too much money."
Friendly Acres Home for the Aged was the place of
employment for LaVonda Campbell. Her bad times
were when a resident died.
Campbell felt she "had learned how to cope with the
unpleasant and unwilIing." '
Students gain from work and must try to put something
back. An unidentified student working at Presbyterian
Manor said, "l can makethe old people feel like they
are worth something."
Larry Bornowsky, who works for Taylor Forge and
Anvil, said, "I like the challenge of doing something
different all the time."
Student rapport employees is generally very good
as Denise DuBois commented, "My boss is really under-
standing about my career. She talks often to me about
school and is really interested. She knows I'm wanting
to go into business with the possibility of owning my
own business, so she's showing me the ropes." DuBois
worked at Hankins Jewelers.
The J. C. Penney manager said, "l feel good about
the students that have worked for Penney's in high school.
I have several college students that return each summer
and work part time that were former high school eml

G0 FOR IT!
This was the year.
Between opening and closing season losses, the 1980 Rail-
ers packed the most exciting season in years into the record
This was the year of five consecutive wins- the most since
1923. This was a winning year- the first since the 5-4 squad
of 1969. This was the season of beating Wellington for the
first time since most people could remember. This was the
fall of the birth of HaIl's Hogs- the name given the Iinemen of
assistant coach Greg Hall.
"We did things we were physically incapable of doing. We
beat teams bigger than us, quicker than us and deeper than
us," Mr. Ron Gould, third year head coach, said. "We real-
ized goa-Is and then some." 15'
According to Gould, there were two major highlights dur-
ing the victory string. The Derby game was the first and
"coming back against Campus and having our first shutout
in a long time for Homecoming," was the other. Q
Opening the year at tough Winfield, the black and gold
dropped a 32-14 decision but roared back to register consecu-
tive wins over EI Dorado, Augusta, Derby, Campus and Wel-
lington. Arkansas City's big, physical crew halted the wins
and the game took its toll in injuries to starters. Four were
slowed or lost for the rest of the way. Play-offs were still a
mathematical possibility as late as the final game but a quick
McPherson team subtracted the Railers' chances.
"The team was very unselfish, intelligent and an enormous
pleasure to coach," Gould said.
This was the year the Railers went for it.

"Most people believe that win-
ning is the most important aspect
of sports. Winning is important, but
it is not the most important thing.
lt certainly beats losing, but in our
two losses this year I feel that per-
haps we learned just as much, if not
more than we did in winning,"
The two frosh losses were by one
point and came in the final minutes
of play. Against McPherson, it was
on the final play of the game.
Highlight of the season was beat-
ing previously undefeated Buhler in
double overtime, 26-20, according
"lt had to be one of the sweetest
victories l as a coach have ever ex-
perienced," he said.
Playing in every type of weather
imaginable, the junior varsity strug-
gled to an 0-6 mark.
"One thrill was watching several
players earn varsity positions parti-
ally through their play on Monday
nights," Coach Jay Myers said.

to bring about the best season we
ever had," Mr. Ron Capps, cross
country coach, said.
Along with individual efforts,
teamwork, good attitudes and a
high finish at the state meet by
both the varsity boys and girls
teams aided the winning ways, ac-
cording to Capps. E
Team records were: varsity- 80-4,
girls- 73-13, JV- 63-1 and freshmen-
48-0. These records are proof of
the great seasons these teams had.
The combination of all teams
was a remarkable 264-17. Capps'
method of figuring won-loss records
is based on the number of teams
beaten at a meet counted as wins

and the teams placing ahead of
Newton scored as losses.
There were seven guys and nine
girls who returned this year as let-
tered athletes. A total of 60 stu-
dents were on the team. Each
person, on the average, ran a total
of approximately 219 miles and
still kept a positive attitude.
"The athletes performed what
they were expected to do and had
great attitudes," Capps said.
At the state meet, the girls fini-
shed fifth and the guys qualified for
team medals and a trophy by fini-
shing third. lt was the highest finish
at a state meet by either squad in
NHS history. Senior Clay Anderson
was the top individual with 10th.

AVL champs, state 5A runner-up and
an excellent 31-3 record capped the
1980-81 varsity volleyball year.
"We had a well-balanced team. Each
player improved throughout the season,"
Coach Janis Wilkey said. "lt was a good
group of seniors and we will miss them."
"We will have three strong players re-
turning in Lisa Okle, Doreen Herrington
and Tamara Girrens plus we have some
good people from JV and freshmen com-
ing," Wilkey said.
Lone losses in the exciting spike sea-
son were to 6A powerhouse Lawrence

5A champs. -
After pasting Augusta in two games in
the opening round of state, played here,
and polishing off Hays in the semis, the

erything a state title battle should be.
Nliege began the championship chase
in command the first game. However,
the last two games went into extra
points and serves- the Ballers came from
behind with sharp sets and crisp spikes
to snag game two- then dropped the
third game 18-16, after some brilliant
play by both teams. ,

I ve been happy with all of them. It s a team effort.
The team relied on each other to do a certain thing,"
Mr. Don Cameron, head basketball coach, said.
Instead of having one All-State player that carried
much of the load, it was a total team effort. According
to Cameron, the team was a close-knit group of young
men who kept striving to improve throughout the entire
season. Although the 1980-81 Railers were typified by
the whole rather than individual play, there were honors
At the Dodge City Tournament of Champions, Doug
Reber and Mike Sebo, both seniors, were selected for

The season brought many highlights. Beating Central
and Buhler in close games in the second half of the
season were the biggest highlights. "Buhler and Newton
have been rivals for years and beating them by six points
was an exciting accomplishment for the team," Meier
said. "I thoroughly enjoyed working with these girls.
They gave their best effort to the team and myself."
Along with playing as a team, the junior varsity has,
"blended well together, each person has contributed his
part to making it complete. Our goals were to play the
very best that we can each game. At times we have
been successful at other times we have lost our concen-
tration and not done our best," Mr. Dan Randall,

Randall listed beating Campus after having lost to
them in a previous game as the big highlight for the

"We felt we needed to do our best and if we could
win every game and live up to our potential, then we're

continuing to improve was the constant goal of the
team," Nlr. Eric Stiffler, fifth year head basketball
This year's varsity team was structured in such a way
that on any given night a certain girl could stand out.
There were seven girls that helped the team to win
games, at one time or another. Whoever happened to be
strong would do the job, sometimes it was one person
other times it was a total team effort.
Caroline Mixon became a starter this year and ad-
justed to the position quite well. Mixon took over the
job as one of the team leaders and also averaged 10
points a game.
One of the many highlights of the season was making
it to the finals of the Newton Invitational and placing
first by beating undeafeated McPherson. "We played
three good games, straight in a row. That tourney
was the best example of the team working together.
There were attitudes of seriousness and determination,"
"A characteristic people will remember about this
year's team would be the fine balance of the players.
4lt's hard to achieve a balance like that every season,
it was a very gratifying season," Stiffler said.

"We have a winning attitude, mental toughness is our
primary goal. We feel our opponents will have to defeat

Coach Jack Thaw said during the 1980-81 wrestling
Newton has a great tradition in its 20 year wrestling
history. They have won 127 duals and lost only 46.
Vince Martinez and Oliver Fryhover, both seniors, and
Kelby Harrison, sophomore, were keeping up that tra-
dition throughout the regular season. Harrison was 21-
10, Martinez 18-0, and Fryhover 22-2.
There were some problems with injuries this season as
a knee problem took senior Phil Morford out early in
the season and a shoulder injury in regionals kept Ver-
non Tolbert, senior, from placing in the state tourna-
ment, according to Thaw.
The team set a variety of goals as well as each mem-
ber having their own individual goals.
The team goals were to place first in the Ark Valley
League, they placed second. Other goals were to place
in the top three in regionals, sub-state and state.
"Each wrestler's goals was to have a winning record.
Most of the team members have met these goals. Nine
out of eleven have winning records," Thaw said.
The wrestling season had many highlights. Placing
second at the Douglass Tourney, third out of 16 teams
at the tough Garden City Tournament and second at
the Emporia regional, defeating the defending state
champs in the process were three of them.

"I think what we're looking for in this year's team is to gain
as much experience as we can and develop the talent we have,
because we do have a lot of talent," according to Head Coach
JoAnn Thaw early in the school year. -
The team was divided into two teams, varsity and junior
varsity. One of the highlights of the season for the varsity
squad was receiving fifth place in the Newton Tournament of
Champions. There were a 'total of eight teams competing,
which included some of the best in the state.
For the first time in four years the varsity squad won their
first meet of the season by edging Great Bend at their quad-
One of the goals the squad set for themselves was to be real-
istic. The thought of reaching the state tournament was not
only realistic but exciting to the squad. "The girls set their
goals and concentrated on hitting their tricks constantly,"
Three girls attained their goal of attending the state gym-
nastics meet. Annette Gatz, Kay Cherryholmes and Tina Caud-
ell qualified for the state meet at Derby on Friday, Nov. 15.
"The caliber of gymnastics was just beyond us, but the girls
did well, the girls who were winning it were scoring in the
nines," stated Thaw.
Although none of the girls placed, their performances were
good. "Annette hit a good vault and her beam routine had no
faults. Kay looked nice on the floor. The audience really
enjoyed her performance. Tina was nervous but she had a nice
bar routine with no flaws," Thaw said. "lt was a good exper-
ience just being there."

not only from NHS, but from Peabody and Burrton,
also. Skills learned by VICA members included learning
how to operate a milling machine, surface grinder and
an engine lathe.
Skills acquired by VICA members were put to use at
a Skills Competition in Wichita. A blueprint minus the

out the correct size and how to assemble the piece of
Money was raised for the competition by saving

Student Council is the active group which aids the
students and faculty in many ways. Sponsoring,
supporting, participating and planning are generally
what Stuco is all about.
Sponsoring is the main thing which included Home-
coming, Winter Sports Week, back to school activities,
and student exchanges.
"There is a most active interest this year, more
unity," commented lVlr. Charlie Triggs, Stuco sponsor,
"Even with 26 students in Stuco there are more
dedicated people this year, and we have gotten more
accomplished," Scott Jost said, secretary-treasurer of
the senior class.
"Having been sponsor for the last 13 years, this year's
kids are great people to work with," Mr. Triggs said.

Money raisers this year were bake sales and other
sales, they made up the time they have devoted to the
club by deciding what to do with the funds. They
treated themselves to a field trip.
"A group of outstanding high school girls who
contribute their time and effort to help events at
Newton High School to' run more smoothly," Miss
Jan Hoberecht, Usherette sponsor, said of the club.

Starting the year early, the cheerleaders attended
the Dynamic Cheerleading Camp at Emporia State for
one week in the summer. They worked on routines,
cheers, chants and spirit ideas.
"I loved it," said Lisa Benninghoff, varsity cheer-
leader, "lt was a great experience, I enjoyed meeting all
the different cheerleaders, then seeing them throughout
The cheerleaders also put forth an extra effort
to promote school spirit. They started decorating
school before each football game with R.A.S.
An addition was made to the cheerleading squad
this year when six male yell leaders were added.
Mike Friday and Steve Reber came up with the
original idea, after attending Josten's spirit clinic in
August. Friday and Reber took the idea to Mrs. Pearl
Kurr and she handled the situation fromlthat point on.
The new yell leaders during football were Friday,
Reber, Barry McAnulty and Eddie Griswold. After
football Galen Kaufman and Chris Anderson joined the
squad for the winter sports season while McAnulty
dropped it for wrestling.
"The first assembly was real scary, students
thought we were real strange, but I think its catching on
now." said Reber, "l think if we get as much help as we
are now that it will grow and maybe someday all of the
Ark Valley will have yell leaders."
"The yell leaders help us out," said Benninghoff,
"they make it easier to do formations and help with
chants also, l'm really glad we had the chance to work

What does R.A.S. mean? At the start of the school
year this was a common question among students.
R.A.S. means Railer Athletic Supporters and is a coed
R.A.S. participated in many activities this year. ln
December they got together with Stuco and had a ska-
ting party. R.A.S. also helped the cheerleaders decora-
ting the school Thursday nights before the football
Supporting school spirit was the prime goal of R.A.S.
The club members made suckers with the slogan "Lick
'Em" before the Augusta football game and distributed
them during the Pep Assembly. R.A.S. also sold NEW-
TON RAILERS shirts to the school.
"We had a great time, it was more fun being a coed
club," Char DeSmith, Fi.A.S. president, said. "But being
the first year the attendance was down, hopefully in
coming years R.A.S. will increase in numbers."

FFA teaches skills in many things: farming, manage-
ment, judging and parliamentary procedure were all a
part. FFA has been at NHS for many years.
During January the club had two big events. On
January 15 the South Central District FFA officers
toured the school. They traveled throughout the South
Central District viewing over 20 schools. One officer
said of our school, "lt's great, the facilities are
wonderful, particularly for sports."
On January 16 at 3:30 a.m. the Chapter Officers
left for Denver, Colorado and the South Central
National Livestock Show. During the trip they attended
meetings, viewed prime livestock among other things.

community is so close knit.

The greatest reward for him was being accepted by
the students. "They include me in all FFA activities,
l'm not an outsider," Schrag said.
Nlrs. Kris Steiner, HERO adviser, also made a teacher
transition, hers was in the middle of the school year.
"The worst part of taking lVlrs. Gay Grose's place was
the students wanting me to be lVlrs. Grose and not
accepting me as a new teacher." lVlrs. Grose left at the
first semester when her husband was transferred to a job
HERO has been in existence two years. lt is the
study of different occupations related to home
economics. The girls were involved in projects such as
making and selling footballs, popcorn and cookies. The
money raised was used to rent a suite at the Holidome
in Hutchinson. The girls were able to enjoy the many
facilities of the hotel, such as a sauna, hot tub, golf
course and others.

Starting out right was one of the biggest factors of

"For the club to survive in the future there needs to
be more members. Some of the activities were to im-
prove in your writing skills and share original works
with each other," Mrs. Joy Schirer, club sponsor,
Some future plans are to visit the local creative
writing club and have some guest writers come in.
"lt is a good opportunity for students who want to
write," Schirer said.
Chess is becoming more active every year. Nine
members went to state on February 28.
"Those chosen were on their ability and willingness
to practice with the team and improving their game,"
lVlr. Tony Soper, sponsor, said. "lVlost kids just come
in all the time to play but not wanting in the club.
They want to improve their game against a chess mem-
ber, to challenge them, to work on strategy." "lt's
improving every year," Soper said. '

Clubs involving the languages were generally small
but nevertheless, fairly active for their size.
There were around 34 members all together in the
French, Spanish and Humanities clubs. All three clubs
took trips to Kansas City to the Nelson Art Gallery.
Spanish and Humanities went together in the fall,
French in the spring.
The largest club, French, with approximately 20, had
several parties, notably a costume party at Halloween
and a Christmas party. There were others. "We cook
a lot and eat a lot," Mrs. Annette Whillock, sponsor
With six members the Spanish club did not meet reg-
ularly. According to the sponsor, Mr. Joe Ramirez,
the club worked concessions and went to Wichita State
along with the KC trip.
"We haven't had a big membership,"Ramirez said.
"We have to compete with all the other cIubs."
Varied were the activities of Humanities, a club of
eight sponsored by Miss Bonnie Selanders. During
activities, "We play games, take scavenger hunts, give
reports of experiences and show photos," Miss Sel-
anders, sponsor, said. They also took a trip to the
Sandzen Art Gallery in Lindsborg.

"FCA is a neat place for students to relate with other
people without the pressures from school or society," said
Mr. Dan Randall, FCA sponsor.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a group of people,
similar to a club, that meets every Thursday morning
at 7:15 a.m. Along with weekly meetings, FCA has had
many activities outside of school. ln September, FCA
went on a 10 mile bike ride that ended with a watermelon
feed at East Lake. They also have had a Thanksgiving
Turkey Feed and a scavenger hunt along with the Annual
Christmas Caroling Party through the downtown stores.
FCA is one of the major clubs with approximately 100
attending members. Thespians, on the other hand, is one
of the smaller clubs, with 20 regular members.
Thespians sponsor was Mrs. Rhondalyn Berroth. This
year Thespians concentrated on rebuilding the club, and
as a whole, reorganized. A money-raiser was the sale of
Railer-grams twice during the year.

Young coach stays busy
"l have always liked soccer, but was never able to play,
because there were no teams when I was young. Since I
wasn't able to play l coached," said George Garcia, senior.
Three teams was an unusually large amount for one
coach. George started with "only two" as he put it. But
they needed a coach for the third team so he took it. It
would seem that conflicts could have arisen between play-
ing each other tand of having games at the same time.
George did have to fight having games at the same time but
the teams never played each other as they were all differ-
ent ages. The Jets were kindergarten and first graders, the
Raiders were second and third graders, while the Rams
were fourth and fifth graders.
A lot of work came with coaching. Each team practiced
an hour a day, with two 45 minute games a week.
"Everybody put in a lot of hard work. No one person
effort," said George. "They weren't always cooperative in
nt could shine alone, but some came close, it was a team
practice but when it got down to the nitty-gritty they
is always listened and pulled together."

Gal trainers break into football,
players' injuries get female touch
Being the ,first ever football managers at NHS may not seem like such a big deal, but being
the only female trainers in a man's sport is.
For Leasha Johntson and Stasia Keyes, " It has really been a privilege, but not an easy
job," Keyes said. ' ,
"We got, the job when Coach Gould asked me if'l wanted to be one and so I asked Stasia
too," Johntson said. A '
Taking on the job as sophomores, they enjoyed it and decided to attend camp at-Emporia
last summer. "We spent three days at camp, we learned how to detect and treat injuries that
can occur on the football field as well as in other athletic events. lt was very interesting and
we had a really great time," Keyes said. .
As trainers, Keyes and Johntson did a lot of work that included treatment and taping of
injuries, getting equipment and medical supplies ready for games and making sure everything
was in stock. y . '
'But being female did cause a few problems. "A few times we got caught in the coaches of-
fice when the guys came in to change, and Leasha got tackled with the water cooler one
time too," Keyes added. ' '
, 'Both girls plan to continue being trainers next year and are going to attend a camp at Mis-
Souri ,this summer to learn more. ,Johntson said, "lt's been really great, l'm glad l decided, to
be a manager. l've learned a lot about football and people both." '

Just good ol' boys -
never mean no harm
"l just always wanted to miake a movie, and ,so l
got a bunch of guys together to make it," commented
Chris Anderson, the founder ofk"The Danger Boys"
that grouped up to make a film. ,
It all started in the spring of 1980 when a few guys
made a film they decided to call "A Trestle Too
Close," an army movie which they set to music.
'After making the first film over a weekend, they
decided to make a second film that took two and a
half months to create, and cost around S300. They
named it "Apocalyspe Wow."
"Once we had made the film we were sitting ar--
ound Chris's house with not much to do, so we put
on some masks and hats and became The Danger
Boys," recalled Galen Kaufman..The Danger Boys
were: Troy Peterson, Brett Barnhart, Steve Arellano,
Robbie Dodd, Tom Fayette, Eric Weins, Faber Por-
ter, Galen Kaufman, Kelby Harrison, Lyle Powers,
Ron McFarlane, Mark Boston, Tim Regier and Chris
Their motto was "good to good people, bad to bad
people."They decided to enforce it on Main St. one
r "We saw this old man's car stalled on Main St. so
we all pulledover, jumped out, saying 'We are The
Danger Boys and you are a good person,' then we
pushed his car for him," Kaufman said. A . -
Funny incidences didn't just happen after the film,
they also happened during the filming. , I
"Eric Wiens got hit in the nose and had to have
stitches," Dodd said. gg gggg - eeee
"We were filming on Main lin army clothesl and
this cop came up to us and wrote a ticket with seven
charges: loitering, harassment, mis-representation of
the armed forces, carrying ,weapons with, no identi-
fication, so while she was writing th e ticket, we film-
ed her and put her in the movie too," Anderson said.
"People actually thought we were from the Na-
tional Guard," Kaufmangsaid.
Besides having a "lot ofxgsood times," as Dodd put
it, The Danger Boys found a close friendship. "lt
really brought us together, all the guys in the film
have gotten closer," Anderson said. "Galen Kaufman
was a big help. We sat up 'til 1 a..m'. some nights work-
ing and gettingsick of it together."
Kaufman concluded by saying, " Everyone should
try it,-everyone should make a film.
. "Trestle Too Close" was shown. to the faculty at an
'in-service workshop during November and "Apoco-
lyspe Wow" was featured at the school on -Friday

, Many of us see a professional working and wonder Hey could I do that? Very few
people undertake the project they are so interested in. Scott Mathews is just the oppo-
site of this. About nine years ago he saw a couple of mimes on the Gong Show and set

out to learn how to mime.
Shields and Yarnellej professional mimes, were also an inspiration to Scott."I ad-
mire Tony Shields because he is doing what l'd"like to be doing."
Scott's biggest performance was to a group of 700-800 guests attending an after square
dance party. "I wasn't expecting such a large group, I only expected about 30-80 people.
I wasn't too thrilled about doing this job beforehand, but performing for this large group
was great, they were very responsive."
Performing close to 35 times, he has never asked to be paid. Occasionally groups will
give him a smafpdonation for his time and effort. A
- "Yes, I would definitely consider miming as a career," Scott said. In a small way he has
already started a career as a mime. He made two commercials for the arthritis foundation.
The first was for the local chapter and local TV. The sepond was a commercial for the na-
tional chapter and nationwide TV. In the commercials, Scott's movements, like a robot, is
compared to the movement of a person with arthritis. I '

"It was sort of unbelieving, I never 01
thought it could happen,'.' commented Mr 0,
Alden Allbaugh. He was speaking of 1975
when he wont the Class A State Horseshoe Q
Championship. g pi
' Being a farm boy from northeastern Q
Kansas, Allbaugh grew up around horseshoes ,p
as a form of recreation. If
During WW ll, Allbaugh neglected horse- Q
shoes. During the 1960's he-began to play 19
again when Mr. William Okalburg suggested Q
holding a tournament. "It was surprising p
how many people showed up to pitch," Q
Following this tournament was the rebirth If
of horseshoes in the Newton area. A league tp
was formed to include several surrounding tl:
towns. , rp
Human nature has always been to be a If
winner. Because of this Allbaugh began to rf:
practice. He became proficient enough to fn
win first place in class B in 1972 and 1974. Q
In 1975 he won the Class A first place, nv
which was the overall championship title. If
Reminiscing over his '75 win, Allbaugh Q:
commented, "I remember being very emo- 0'
tional as fellow pitchers came over and con- nv
gratulated me, so much that l shed a few A
"It is a very challenging game which pro- pi
vides an endless thrill, l think young people If:
would enjoy 'the sport if they would get pi
started," said Allbaugh. - Q

Gluten Tag Deutsch'
I found a lot of people wanting to take German and
that were very happy to finally be able to take it said
Mrs Michelle Frlesen Carper German instructor
German was added to the school s curriculum this year
for the first time since 1942 German was a major lang
uage up until then but was taken out at the fall semester
because of the many anti German feelings during the war
A second year course of German will be offered next
year courses will be added continued Mrs Friesen Car
When the Board of Education decided to have a Ger
man course the response was overwhelming The admin
lstratlon expected the enrollment to be enough for two
classes but there were 70 students enrolled and four
classes were taught Interest was exceptionally high
especially concerning seniors
I find high school teaching somewhat more challeng
mg ln terms of subject matter I enjoy interacting with
more developed minds Mrs Friesen Carper said

retros active on Iran
tl: Perhaps not since Dec. 7, 1941 had the American people
gn been so aroused and emotionally unified as they were in the na-
il: tion's showdown with Iran. dl
pi The Iranian crisis was infuriating because the mightiest power
on earth found itself engaged in a test of will with an unruly

its by Muslim students. Every other Islamic nation condemned the
no taking of hostages. I

for 12 days. When he appeared after his seclusion, he said

M A single mis-calculation could lead to the dangerous conse-
rf' quence of large-scale bloodshed. 45
If: Iranian reaction was evident in the States. Aboard an Ameri-
19 can Airlines jet, a bomb exploded inside a mail pouch, causing
minor damage to the cargo hold. Anonymous phone calls to
gp Chicago newspapers attributed the blast to Iranians who wer
rf retaliating for harassment they had experienced in the U.S.

19 Failing action of the U.N. caused the U.S. to organize a serie
of dramatic but carefully limited moves of economic reprisals.
These sanctions included: freezing all Iranian banking assets in
tp the U.S.pstopplng purchase of Iranian oil, l700,000 bbl. per day gl
0 four percent of U.S. consumptionl, and unofficial interruption
M of S500 million worth of food to Iran.

'12 Response to these steps, for the most part, was positive. An
Q Iranian official said, "l slept well the night the U.S. froze our
M assets. W1ef don tbneed rgoney and vitae are safe and secure. The
oi cut-o was e :eve to ma e t e American peope "more
conservation-minded," according to a Washington aide. The
M International Longshoremen's Association supported the un-
M official impasse. They instructed members not to load any
,vessels bound for Iran.
- Saturday, Nov. 23, 1979 Khomeini, who later said he could
and never had controlled the students, ordered the students to
release the women and blacks, numbering thirteen. The reason
'for their release was, "Islam grants to women a special status
and blacks have spent ages under American pressure and tyr-
ranny." . dl
Even in the light of this good news came a shadow of dark-
ness. The lranians announced that the remaining 52 hostages
would go on trial as spies. "They should be released if they are
not spies," Khomeini said. 43
tp "AlI Western governments are just thieves," he said. "lranian gl
feelings are not against the American people, but against the
American government." Khomeini did not realize that the
American people are the government. He continued to say,
"The U.S. government may destroy us but not our revolution."
tp After the 444th day of captivity, the 52 Americans were
finally set free. The final release came on Jan. 20, 1981, inaug-
uratlon day. lronically, Khomeini had said at the beginning of
the ordeal, "Islam stands for freedom in all its dimensions."

RAILER COUNTRY was chosen as a theme with inspiration
from the movie "Urban Cowboy " The movie was a big success
and many teenagers began to copy the western style of clothing 6'
Cowboy boots and hats became predominant here along with
pf Western style shirts
Students who lived in the country saw this and became more
comfortable wearing their own western clothes J

chewing cowboy In the spring of 1980 chewing was becoming 4'
a regular habit with many guys ln October Mr Wilson made a
request of students that request was that chewing whould be
kept to a mimum and with aspect to property and others He
also requested that they not spit
