Activities to remember
Our trip around the world in 180 days provides us
with many experiences. As we pass over the Student
Life section on our voyage, we see school breaks . . .
jobs . . . pep assemblies. . . dances. . .movies and plays
. . . the endless hours we spend dragging main and hang-
ing out at Big-D. We see parades and parties and just be-
ing with our friends.
There is excitement in school too. Our school pro-
vides us with many different clubs, Stuco . . . Pep Club
. . . Usherettes. . . Railerettes. . . Cheerleaders. . . FCA
. . . Thespians . . . French Club . . .Spanish Club . . .
DECA . . . CEA . . . HERO . . .VlCA. . .and Chess
Being a student at NHS is more than coming to
school at 7:50 and departing at 3:30. It is a learning
experience, in many aspects. We learn the basics,
reading, writing and arithmetic. But more than that, we
learn about the world and life.

orking toward independence
For many high school students,
working is a necessity. Working pro-
vides us with many opportunities and
it creates new challenges.
A job can prepare a high school stu-
dent for a future career. For Lisa
Barber, senior, her job at Friendly
Acres as a nurse's aid is preparing her
for her future career in nursing.
"Working in a nursing home gives me
a sense of satisfaction because you are
helping people. "This job will help
me while I am going ghrough nursing
in colIege," Barber said.
A job gives us money that is a vital
part of our lives. lVlany students make
car payments, pay for gas and buy
their own clothes. Junior Valerie

time and doing the necessary work
for our job. Some students take on
a great deal more responsibility by
working two jobs and going to school.
Tackling two jobs and school can be
very hectic, but the benefits are re-
warding. Sharon Salmans, senior, is
one of those laborous studentsxwork-
ing two jobs. "Having two jobs isn't
really that bad. l don't have a lot
of spare time, but l need the money
for my plans next year," Salmans said.
For many students working is a
vital part of growing up and increasing
their independence. And you have to
admit the money isn't bad either!

Winter Sports Week got off to a
flying start Monday when the entire
student body got the chance to see,

during the last two hours of the day.
To show their spirit, students wore
military outfits Monday morning.
They showed up in army fatigues,

Tuesday was a big disappointment
to everyone, teachers included.
lVlonday night, we received four
inches of snow, and temperatures
reachingwbelow zero. This caused
the cancellation of the Winter
Olympics. Despite the let-down, al-
most everyone showed up in sweats,

Wednesday was a rowdy day for
everybody. Students got a chance
to show their creativeness for

Joe Cool says, "Be Preppie"
Fads, fads, fads . . . where would
we be without them? Students at
NHS thrive on the different fads.
They come, and they go. Some stay
longer than others, but some seem to
stay around forever.
Tina Buss', junior, definition of a
fad is, "something that's real popular
with everyone, but it doesn't last
"A fad would have to be some-
thing that comes in for a short time,'
Sylvia Arellano, senior, said "and
then goes out in the same way."
In the 1981 and '82 school year
"preppie" was the "in" thing, along
with the regulars, t-shirts, fast cars and
lVlrs. Kurr thinks fads are a "Tem-
porary fascination with something

at the colleges is "General Hospital."
David Hrdlicka definitely thinks the
biggest fad right now is being
"A fad is," Shari Hoelscher said,
"a style that comes in quickly and
goes out quickly."
No matter what fads are around
students will always look for some-
thing new and exciting.

truer words have ever been spoken.
Having friends is a necessity.

As we make our trip around the
world,we pause to observe the many
activities of the clubs and organiza-
tions at NHS. These clubs and organi-
zations served as a meeting place for
good times and good friends.
These groups, however, did more
than promote fun. They taught us
all the importance of leadership and
responsibility. They taught us skills
to help us in careers and they taught
us the meaning of working together.
One of the responsibilities of most
of the clubs was to raise money to
support and keep their clubs active.
Different money raising projects
included selling donuts during break,
sponsoring dances, working
concessions at the sporting events,
and selling items, such as T-shirts,
back to school survival kits and all
kinds of holiday candy grams.
lVlany of the clubs and organiza-
tions found themselves busy during
holidays and Homecoming and Winter
Sports weeks. Stuco sponsored the
Homecoming activities and dance
while DECA sold mums for the
occasion. During the holidays you
can always find parties, goodies and
hard workers. Halloween and
Christmas are two of the celebrated
occasions with parties for the
children, goblin messages and booty
grams. These activities helped make
the special times more special for
each one of us.
These clubs and organizations have
made an impression on us no matter
where we end up in our voyage
around the world.
Selling pan cookies to Mike Hershberger and Jim
Blair are Kay Cherryholmes and Dawn Schommer,

They're working for the people
This year Stuco worked exception-
ally hard at shooting toward a new
goal. This goal was to reach out to
the students and to help them get
more involved.. They worked at
getting the 'llnvisible kids", or
those that dont readily participate,
to take,part in, and share in the
many Stuco sponsored activities at
N.H.S. This formed a more united
feeling which all schools need.
The many activities and fund
raisers which Stuco sponsored include
the Blood mobile, working concess-
ions, student exchanges, back-to-
school activities, and the Stuco
sponsored dances. This year the
dances were, once again a big hit with
students of NHS. Such dances includ-
ed a Back-to-school dance, Toga,
Super Star's Shirt dance. area dance,
and a Semi-formal Christmas dance.
Stuco also helped sponsor very
successful Homecoming and Winter
Sports weeks which took alot of plan-
ing and organization.
Planning and responsibility were
another big part of Stuco. "People
realize how much work and planning
go into it", Barb Hanke, senior, said.
'That's another reason we want more
people to get involved."
Stuco had the responsibility of rep-
resenting the students. For instance
during the class schedule change,
Stuco was consulted about how the
student body felt about the changes.
"lt's a lot of hard work, but well
worth it", Hanke said.
Usherettes is a club of about 24
girls all dedicated to helping. These
girls were chosen because of their
desire to serve the school and com-
munity. The Usherettes serve the
school by ushering for the varsity
sports, plays, freshman orientation,
and the College Bowl.
The girls also serve the community
in many ways. One of the ways they
helped was to usher when outside
organizations came to visit. They
worked as a public relations for
students and the community. "We
have an outstanding group of girls
this year and they have done a fine
job of serving the school and com-
munity", Jan Hoberecht said.

The cheerleaders inspired a winning
feeling at NHS this year. They
boosted school spirit, enthusiasm, and
unity. After all, games and spirit
assemblies just vvouldn'trbe the same
without the time and effort the cheer-
leaders contribute. The Junior Varsity
cheerleaders also came up with some
great cheers and a lot of spirit.
But boosting team spirit and
crowd enthusiasm doesn't happen
without a lot of hard vvork. They
practiced three hours a week as a
group and the basketball cheerleaders
also met separately.
Though it took a lot of time, hard
work and responsibility, nearly all
the girls agreed it was well worth it.
This year the cheerleading squad
was chosen by a new procedure. This
began with a screening of all the girls
trying out by the student body. After
20 girls had been chosen, they went
before a panel of judges. The judges
then chose ten girls to honor our
black and gold, forming the football
squad, and five each from this group
on the basketball and wrestling squad.
Besides cheering and leading pep as-
semblies, the cheerleaders also decor-
ated the school for the occasion. Whe-
ther it was decorating the halls for
holidays or just decorating the halls
and lockers in the black and gold,
they got everyone in the mighty Rai-

What vvould it be like without
that extra group of voices at the pep
assemblies? lt's hard to imagine
because the pep club has existed
for a long time.
Pep club is a big part of our school
spirit. They help support the cheer-
leaders by shouting the cheers along
with them and responding to them.

sports activities. ln September

the psychology experiments in IVlr. Scott's class . . .the
many hours spent studying . . . the field trips to KSIR
or the morturary . . . the frogs in biology. . .the endless

and the equations which seemed impossible to solve.
But finally we remember the important role Academics
played in our lives.
Where some of the knowledge gained throughout
our high school years may have seemed unimportant,
we still realize that every ounce gained was important.
Often forgotten are the teachers who made learning
easier and our subjects more interesting and the admi-
nlstrators who helped us along on our trip through the

"In order to form or communicate
an idea a person has to use language,"
stated IVlr. Ron Gould, English in-
structor. "The better a person is at
communicating his idea the easier
it will be to get the point across."
The English Department primarily
works to help students become bet-
ter with English. The English Depart-
ment acts as a large source of
academic knowledge to a great many
This year, to better serve the stud-
ents, an Honors Program was added
to the curriculum, These advanced
English classes were offered to stu-
dents on every grade level. "The
Honors Program was designed with
the serious student ' in mind,"
said Gould. "This was a course for
the student who chose to involve
himself in a more challenging course
Advanced Placement English was
not necessarily a new class- it was
just a very young one. Advanced
Placement English was started in
I98O by Gould and lVlrs. Joy Schirer.
The course was designed mainly for
Seniors who planned to attend col-
lege. The class consisted of I5 to 20
students who met twice a month in
the evenings. Students did not
earn a high school credit for the
class, but they were offered a chance
to take the Advanced Placement
English test at the end of the year.
T,he test gave the students a chance
to earn a college credit with their
knowledge. "Our seminars were
intellectually stimulating," said
Gould, "Our group discussed in depth
some great authors, such as Shake-
speare, Joseph Conrad and John
Steinbeck. I really think that these
seminars were successful in helping
the students understand some of
the great works of literature."

Many students ask, what is debate?
Debate consists of teams that work
together and debate on one topic.
The topic is chosen by coaches from
all over the United States. The topic
this year was "Resolve that the
Federal government should establish
minimum educational standards for
secondary and elementary education."
The students are either on an
affirmative team or a negative team.
The affirmative team looks at all
the possible areas of improvement
and the negative team tries to prove
it won't work. The students go
through this procedure the whole,
The students can prepare for a meet
by reading, researching and building
an affirmative plan. There are two
types of meets that the students
participate in. The first is a five
round tournament with the second
through the fourth rounds para-
matched, the best against the best and
the worst against the worst. The other
type of meet is a three round meet
where students go through quarters,
semi-finals and finals. "The debate
team is fairly young, and l've been
really pleased with their willingness
to work," lVls. lVlullen, debate instruc-
The forensics team consists of
competitive speaking. The students
are eligible to compete in ten differ-
ent areas of forensics. These include,
duet acting, solo acting, one act
play, impromptu acting, extempor-
aneous speaking, informative speak-
ing, original oration, Lincoln!Doug-
lass debate, oral interpretation of
pros, and oral interpretation of
poetryf The students work on acting
skills, reading skills and speech making
Forensics meets are run similiar
to debate meets. The students receive
a ranking for each round they are in,
beginning with a first place ranking
for the best. Unlike debate, forensics
is very individualized,where as the
teamwork is very important in debate.
"Forensics may be beneficial to the
college bound student, because the
vast majority of ,our activities deal
with communication,and the students
need to know how to communicate
fluently," lVls.' lVlullen said.

French, which is taught by Annette
Willock, is offered in three classes.
French l is for the beginning student.
French ll and Ill are for the student
who wishes to increase his skills
and learn more about the French
culture. The French classes sing
songs, cook dinners and attend con-
tests throughout the year.
German, taught by Kathleen Ashby,
is offered in two classes. German l
is the basic study of the German
language and cultures. This course
teaches the students the German
vocabulary and how it is pronounced.
Newton has many German residents,
so learning the German language and
culture may be a definite advantage to
the student. German ll is a more in-
depth course for the student who
wishes to continue the language.
Spanish, taught by Joe Ramirez,
is offered in three different classes.
Spanish I and ll are courses that
teach the basic speech, -grammar
and vocabulary. "The students learn
how to speak it and how it is put
together," said Ramirez. Spanish Ill
is for the student who is more
advanced and can speak the language
fairly well. "Learning a foreign
language is an advantage to the
students because they realize that
the language can be used outside the
classroom," Ramirez said. Language
may also be beneficial to the
college-bou nd student.

Staffs Work to improve quality
Producing a student publication
involves decisions. Decisions on year-
book theme, cover, what is news-
worthy, which story to feature, which
picture to use and which spread is
going in on a certain deadline. Pub-
lishing a yearbook or newspaper in-
volves a lot of work - hard work.
There are interviews to conduct,
copy and headlines to write, layouts
to draw, cutlines to write, pictures
to identify, film to develop, pictures
to crop, and deadlines to meet. And
eventually all of the work, time and
effort pays off, when the Newtonian
is distributed and the box is opened
and the first Railroader is lifted out.
The Newtonian, the school news-
paper, was distributed every three
weeks this year. The Newtonian
changed from fourteen issues a year
to twelve issues.
The Newtonian functioned as a
total student publication. Aside from
some basic guidelines lVlrs. Bonnie
Short set for the staff, the students
were given a chance to make their
own decisions. Having a longer period
between papers gave the staff a chance
to perfect their skillsin writing, copy,
layout designing, and the quality of
the newspaper. Paul Schrag was the
Editor-ln-Chief of the Newtonian,

The Yearbook staff started early in
the summer planning the 1981-82
Railroader. The staff members met in
the summer to decide upon editorial
positions and seven members attended
the Bethany Yearbook Camp in Linds-
borg, Kansas, "Attending the camp
helped me get in the right mood to
start on the Railroader," Stasia Keyes,
senior, said. "There were a lot of quali-
fied people who answered our ques-
tions and gave us ideas." Once school
started the staff had to make a lot of
big decisions in a relatively short
amount of time. Having a large staff
of eighteen, the Railroader crew was
a very young one, having only four re-
turning staffers. Despite an unexper-
ienced staff all deadlines were met in

from Carol Hinton and Short's proof-
"Since all deadlines come so fast
and close together my staff was just
exhausted by' February," Short said.

Science is the future foundation
"Science is a foundation for many
different things and majors," Chuck
Engle, instructor, said.
Society today is moving tovvard a
more technological time and for this
reason, science is important to the
average high school student. "Science
is a fundamental course, and it helps
place the student in a job market
situation," Engel said. The job market
today, vvill look for the person
educated in science.
Students gmay choose to enroll
in more science classes than are
required for career reasons or just
because the student enjoys science.
Science is defined as simply the study
of things in your environment. So the
student vvho enrolls in ,science may
have a better understanding of vvhat is
going on in his environment.
,Our high school offers a wide
variety of science classes for the
students. They are: Physical Science,
Biology, Physics, Chemistry I and ll,
Applied Chemistry, Life and Death
Science and Zoology. The more
advanced science courses go on many
field trips during the school year
which will enable the student to get
a look at things that are really hap-
pening in our environment.
ln the long run, taking science is
to the advantage of the student
because of the expanding technology
of the world today. Science is also
involved in many courses that
students will take incollege.

Social proves to be beneficial
"Any study that makes you a more
well-rounded person is beneficial,"
said lVlr. Phil Scott. Social, in some
ways proves to be beneficial to the
college bound students.
Seniors are required to take a
government course for one semester
and a semester of psychology, socio-
Wlogy, economics or current events.
lt is important for the college bound
students to know what goes on in our
governmental society today. "They
are approaching the age to vote, and it
will help them to make intelligent
decisions," said lVlr. Charles Triggs,
"Psychology gives the students an
understanding of basic forces that
affect human behavior, both heredi-
tary and environmental," said Scott.
The student will have a better under-
standing of the body and how the
mind functions. This may benefit
the student in later life.
lVlr. Scott's biggest concern for the
graduating, college bound seniors is
that they develop an ability to con-
centrate more, so the student will
study when he or she does not want
to. Another concern, is that when
the class gets difficult, "not to let

important in the school. lVlath is help-
ful to the students in everyday life
and is a vital background for many
career fields. ,
Students at NHS are required to
take one year of math, but some
students take more. Taking more
nath than the required amount can be
Jery helpful. IVlath can open a-
students vvay into many careers, such
as computer programming, banking
and bookkeeping. Even if a student
is not planning on going into one of
these careers, a good math background
vvill prove to be quite helpful in
finding a job.
Students take more math than the
required amount for many reasons,
according to lVlr. Ron Capps,
instructor, "lVlost take it because of
parental pressure." Carla lVlaughlin,
iunior, is taking additional
courses because she plans to go on to
Scott Chamberlain, junior, is taking
additional math courses because "l
need the math anyway and it will
help in college."
Junior Gail Rucker said she vvas
taking more math because it will
"help me in college and because
l 'adore' lVlr. Niles."
"To better understand the principles
of math" was the reason Pam Smith,
junior, took additional math courses.
Courses open to all classes this year
are: General lVlath, Algebra l, Geo-
metry, and lntutitive Geometry. lf
you are only planning on taking the
required one year of math, General
lVlath or Algebra may be your best
bet. But if you are planning on
continuing your math career, Algebra
l Geometry, or lntuitive Geometry
are the course to take.
Courses offered by the math depart-
ment at NHS are: Algebra l,
Geometry, lntutitive Geometry, Ad-
vanced Algebra, Computer Science 1
and Computer Science ll, Consumer
IVlath, Trigonometry, Analytic Geo-
metry and Pre-Calculus math.

Business increases enrollment
Throughout the past several years
business classes have shown an
increase in enrollment. The business
department is somewhat unique,
because there are no required courses.
Yet business classes have had one of
the highest enrollments.
Why are so many students taking
a lot of business classes? Edie lVleier,
instructor, said, "Students are realiz-
ing that any type of background in
business is going to, be helpful in the
working world. lf you don't know
anything about business you are going
to be lost."

grown in popularity is Accounting

depth the different aspects of

who wanted to get a job in account-
ing right out of high school would
have proper background to find a
good job," said Nleier. "The ad-
vanced course was also helpful to
students who wanted to further
their accounting in coIlege."

I have learned a great deal about how
a business is run. The advanced

Students prepare for the future
l-lome Economics was a department
which changed quite a bit throughout
the past several years. The department
at one time had strictly female en-
rollment, but today there are several
males enrolled in,the various classes
within the department.
One of the newest courses was
Child Development. The purpose of
this class was to prepare students for
parenthood. In this class the birth
process was discussed, including the
various stages of fetal development,
and the growth of a child from new-
born to toddler. Understanding the
temperments of babies and their needs
are very important for future parents
Child Development stressed that
before having a child a student must
be ready for a great responsibility.
Different types of birth control were
discussed, this gave students knovv-
ledge of alternatives to having a child.
Besides being mentally ready for
the responsibility of raising a child, a
student must be financially ready for
raising a child. Having and caring for
a child involves a lot of money. The
cost of raising a child has rapidly
increased within the past ten years.
But more importantly students
realized that children are not dolls.
They need special care and attention.
Students discussed almost anything
a future parent would need to know.
"This class made me think twice
about having children before l am
ready," said Jill lVleyers, junior
"But when I decide to start a family
thenknowledge l've gained will help

Some ofthe myths about vocational
agriculture are just that, myths.
You don't have to live on a farm to be
in Vo Ag., but not just anyone can
take Vo Ag. You must either have
an occupational experience program
or an agricultural job in town.
Students are required to do written
vifork and take tests just like any other
Forty percent of all jobs are related
to agriculture. A few of these are:
an agriculture representative at a
bank, county agents, vets, research,
Ag engineering or teaching agricul-
ture in the schools. These jobs are
not limited to men. They are now
open to women as well.
Even though girls take Vo Ag, the
class is still male dominated with only
three of the 35 Vo Ag. and 15 Pre-
Vocational Welding being girls. lVlr.

even more interest in the future.
A probable reason for the interest
students show for this class is the

Students also learn to compose simple

High School offers so many oppor-

in music that the student must have
a difficult time deciding where to
concentrate his talents.
Among the choices at NHS are
Stage Band and Orchestra. The
Orchestra is conducted by Gerald
Kiger, and the Stage Band is conduc-
ted by Francis Toews. The Stage Band
is a select group chosen from the
other concert bands. The students
have a much more casual look when
they play in Stage Band. The music
involved with Stage Band is jazz,
rock, and popular music. The bands
participate in a lot of activities, such
as giving concerts at the high school,
participating in clinics and giving
concerts around the area.
Orchestra splits up into two bands.
During football season, it is just the
string players and after football
season they combine into a full
orchestra. The students are eligible
for orchestra if the students have
previously played in a middle school
band. The Orchestra, despite the
lack of improvement in enrollment,
is doing quite well. Orchestra will

Faces to remember
AS the ballon 'slowly lumbers past the many
students at NHS, we begin to reflect upon the year
Some students look back on homecoming, others
remember winter sports week and the excitement
of competition. Still some recall the new schedule
and how they coped with the new tardy policy.
Freshman remember the excitement of finally
reaching high school. Sophomores heave a sigh of
relief at being half way through, and juniors look
forward to only one more year. Seniors have made
it and now face the unknown.
Even though the events of the past will fade, our
friends and the people we have met will stay with us
forever. Somehow when we look back on our trip
through high school, we'll all know that the
experience was really worth the time that we spent.
Stuco members are a very active and ,iinportantzpart or our school.

After SChO0l: what next?
When the students at NHS finally
I reach their senior year, the age old
question of : "ls there life after
highschool?" seems to find its way
into every senior's heart.
Though some students already know
I exactly what they want to do with
their lives, most are still uncertain.
Some of the class wants a college
- education, but are not sure what to
major in. Others plan to just work
and keep advancing in theircurrent
jobs. Still a few are headed for
vocational schools or technical
institutes for advanced job placement.
Galen Kaufman plans to enter
ROTC training at Fort Phoenix,
Nevada. Pam Fleer plans to become
the second female Supreme Court
appointee. Robbie Dodd plans to
attend a junior college and Annette
Gatz plans to get a masters in
Cindy Sangals said, "l want to be a
Ann Morgan plans to attend WSU
Jennifer Russell said, "I think l'd
'like to be a flying nun "
I Though some are still unsure of
their place there really is life after
Scott Kaye is considering pre med as a major but is undecided
on which college to attend

lt is a familiar scene! The recurren
routine of students rarely changes and
yet every day is different.
Part of life is interacting with other
people and through interacting with
others, we learn about them and our-
selves. At NHS the basic liberal arts
are not the only things learned. We
learn how to relate with other people.
We grow and learn about ourselves.
At our lockers, for example, every-
day we see the same people, do the
same things-study for the same
classes and yet every day is a new

, Would you believe that there are
dragons roaming the dungeons here at
NHS? That hideous orcs and ogres
are waiting to leap upon any unsus-
pecting and weary travelers from
every corner? No, l'm not talking
about the horrors of Advanced
Algebra, or the nightmare that is the
English department. l am talking
about "Dungeons 84 Dragons", a
fantasy role playing game that is
becoming quite popular here and at
colleges around the country.
"Dungeons gl Dragons" is called a
role playing game because the players
take on the personality of a character
that he or she creates. The games are
quite involving and can take many
hours to play. The game really never
ends, only a particular adventure
ln the beginning the game is rather
confusing and difficult, but as it
continues it gets even worse.
Sophomore Kelly Royer has been
playing for more than three years
and he has DM'ed many adventures.
Royer plays advanced "Dungeons 84
Dragons" which is a more complicated
version. Royer enjoys both playing
and mastering "D 8: D" adventures.
He isn't the only student interested
in this new game. Sophomores Philip
Sprunger and Fred Franson along with
some juniors, seniors and freshmen
also enjoy the game.
Though the game may be long and
treacherous most people who play
once want to play again.
Time out to rap
To be a freshman. . . the horror
and the excitement. Remember carry-
ing your map the first day while
going to English and ending up in
Psychology! The premier of many
experiences to come. The beginning
of a tremendous growth process.
During our four years we experience
many things. We learn about ourselves
and others. We gain the personal
growth which is essential.
With this growth we contribute to
the growth of others. We make re-
lationships that will be a part of
high school which we'lI cherish

Victories to remember
Slowly the balloon nears the end of its l8O day
voyage. Looking down it would not be complete with-
We think back to the very first days of the season
and the players remember the aching sides . . . the
sweaty brows . . . the long hours of practices . . . the
celebrated victories . . . and the agonizing defeats.
They remember the forgotten floor routines, the
missed free throws, the short putts, the false starts,
and the missed spikes.
Yet there were the victories, too. Our players
remember the ace serves, the game winning baskets,
the 50-foot putt that dropped, the touchdown saving
tackle and the home runs.
Team effort, coaches, encouragement, and faithful
supporters gave us all our victories to remember.
Senior Alan Denno knows that it takes many hours of practice to make
that game winning free throw. Athletes in all sports know that successes in
games come from practice.

Railers are AVL co-champions
The l98l year was highlighted by
a group of outstanding seniors and an
outstanding offense which lead the
AVL. That combined with a great
defense resulted in NHS first AVL
co-championship, in 29 years. "Our
seniors have started Newton into a
solid winning tradition. l'm convinc-
ed these young athletics will continue
Nevvton's winning ways," Ron Gould,
head football coach stated.
The Railers had five shutouts
by the defense over El Dorado,
Campus, McPherson, Hutchinson and
Ark City. The Railers out scored
all of their AVL opponents I25-24.
There losses against Derby, a 6-A
school, and Kapaun, number one in
5-A competition didn't put an end to
their winning spirit.

All twenty lettermen from last
year's 5-4 squad returned. "The
guys are dedicated and know what
it takes to win," Gould said. The
attitude in practice has been excellent.
JV football can not be forgotten.
This year's season ended up with a
2-3 record. "The defense was a
great asset to the victories of the
JV season," Gould said. Success
couldn't be accomplished Without
some outstanding players.
"The team worked well together for
the amount of time in practice."

The team finished with a 22-9 over
all record, when the season ended
somewhat unexpectedly at the sub-
state tournament, at Buhler. At
sub-state the railers lost out in the
first round to Buhler, the eventual
tournament winner, by the scores
of: I5-Il, ll-l5, I2-I5.
"lt was upsetting to lose the first
game of sLl.b-state, when we had

a good effort to win, but Buhler
didn't make mistakes and played
the best volleyball they had all year,

Railer girls improve records
"We had a young team this year,"
Phil Scott, girls' tennis coach, said.
The girls' tennis team finished third
in the Ark Valley League and were
second in Regionals. The girls also
were in the quarter finals at State.
The Varsity team had six members,
four of them will be returning next
year. The four returning are: Jodi
Schmidt, junior, Susan lVlcVey, junior,
Kris Voran, sophomore, and Cindy
Voran, sophomore. Barb Edwards
and Karen Schmidt are seniors. Scott
also thought "they did exceptionally
well this year."
The 1981 season was a rebuilding
year for the JV team. "We had a lot
of freshman taIent," Coach Terri
Elder said. With the talent the
freshmen possess, there is a bright
outlook for the 1982 season.
The Railer girls' golf team also had
an outstanding year. "lt was a great
year. The girls had a good attitude
and did a good job," Larry Preston,
girls' golf coach, said. Three of the
six girls will be returning next year.
They are: Jill lVIeyers, junior, Carol
Slack, sophomore, and lVIarie Baugh,
freshman. The three seniors are:

For next year there are hopes that

prove and match the terrific chore-
graphy and dance.
There were ten meets this year in-
cluding regional and state. They did
well at most of their meets. lt was a
great year because of being down last
year. Although they had some pro-
blems against a lot of competitors
they made it a great year.
There were ten girls this year com-
peting. Two seniors will not be
returning next year, Gatz and Holde-
man, but with the hope of the others
returning, eight girls and the new
freshmen, it should be a good year.

"This year the team was a lot
younger than last year and we
needed more enthusiasm and had to
work a lot more on skill than last
year. We also had a smaller squad
this year," Coach Jack Thaw said.
This year's NHS wrestling squad
was younger and smaller than most.
Throughout the season the team
had to work on skills and techni-
ques to stay even with their
"lt was a good year, but we could

Railermen reach for victories
"This year's team was more consis-
tent, and our guard play was steady,"
Don Cameron,cbach, said.
The Railers continued to improve
throughout the season. "Defeating
NlcPherson twice was one of the great-
est highlights of the season," Coach
Cameron said. Newton has never
taken the lVlcPherson title in the I8
year history of the tournament,
having lost previous championship
games in l972 and l978.
Another highlight of the tourna-
ment for the Railers was beating
undefeated Buhler 58-53. The
Crusaders had been ranked eighth
overall in the state.
But as always in a season there
are some disappointments. The
Railers were defeated by Hutchinson
in double overtime. "The overall
attitude was great," Don Cameron
said. The high .scorers for the Railers
were Alan Denno, Eric Rhoades,
Bernie Pearson, Kent Richards, Scott
Harder and Todd Christian. "We
are looking forward to the next
season with great anticipation. lf
we can put it all together, some
of the brighter moments could be in
the future," Cameron said.
The Railer Junior Varsity team had
a rebuilding year with its leading
scorers being Todd Christian, Jim
Higgins, Eric Pearson, Steve Regier,
Tom Campa and Jim Sauerwein.
"The team as a whole has improved.
They are a deeper team and there are
more players to do an excellent job,"
Coach Dan 'Randall said.

Work pays off for Railers
"We have some very good competi-
tors. They all have positive attitudes.
They work hard. They go out there
with the attitude that they're going
to win," said lVlr. Ralph lVlalin, fresh-
men basketballcoach. This held true
for the freshman Railers for they
had an outstanding record.
The sophomore and junior varsity
teams worked hard learning and im-
proving the talent they had. They
worked at molding themselves into a
team, strengthening their fundamen-
tals so that every person would fulfill
his part of the team.
Coach Dan Randall did have a small
problem with a lack of numbers. Due
to the small number of players, it was
sometimes difficult shuffling them a-
round from sophomore to junior
varsity games, while making sure no
one was playing too many quarters.

Number of players was a problem
for the Baller girls, as they
dwindled downto 13 players by
the end of the season on both
Varsity and JV teams. Injuries
were also a difficulty' that the team
was forced to deal with. Injuries
ranging from broken fingers and
wrists to sprained ankles arose
throughout the seanon. But the
girls were able to overcome these
obstacles to go on to a winning

of the Baller girls, stated that in
December and January the team
made steady progress, but it was
difficult to continue working,
pushing and improving with a
record of 10-O. "We got to the
point where we had won too many
games and we lost the incentive go
improve. ,But after those two
losses, lVlcPherson and Buhler, we
had the edge back again, and the
desire to get better. A team either
has to get better or worse, not stay
the same. We got to the place
during late January where we
tried to stay the same."

Swimmers all wet, but winning
Some people may think splashing
around in a swimming pool is all fun
and no work, but being on the
Newton High School swim team is far
The season began at the first of
November with two-a-days. Two-a-
days mean that everyday, five days a
week, the swimmers must pull them-
selves out of bed into the cold
weather, to the high school, still
half asleep and begin swimming at
6 o'clock. These dedicated athletes
plunged into their watery world and
swam 2,000 yards.
On other mornings they lifted
weights and ran. This laborous
sacrifice continued for two weeks.
Throughout the season the swimmers
practiced every night for two hours,
swimming 5,000 yards. This year
the swimmers resumed two-a-days
following Christmas vacation for
Despite the loss of divers this year,
the swim team remained strong. They
set many records and continued to be
a strong force at Newton High School.
Seniors Evan Ice, Jim O'Toole and
junior Scott Chamberlain set school
records this year. O'Toole's record
was set in the 100-yard butterfly.
Ice prevailed in the 50-yard and
100-yard freestyle, and Chamberlain
set records in the 200-yard and 500-
yard freestyles. At the Great Bend
relay meet this year NHS's 200-
yard' butterfly relay team of Ice,
Shane Hege, junior, Chamberlain, and
O'Toole set a new pool record.

The pain, the sweat, the pulled
muscles, and the hours of work all
to reach the best physical condition
possible. To reach this goal It takes
dedication. Although weighttllftlng
was not an official program this year,
many young men trained to get into
condition for certain sports while
others trained just for the sport
In Weightlifting they lift in these
three categories, brench press, squat
and dead lift. In competition the
judges take the weight that each lifted
in all three categories and add them
together. This gives them their maxi-
mum weight lifted.
Chris Anderson, senior, and Galen
Kauffman, senior, both competed-In

students from ten other schoolst
This year the top six guys from NHS
also competed at this competition.
Mike Roberts, sophomore, weight
lifted to get in shape for his sport,
track. "lf l didn't train l just could
not compete to the best of my ability
or with the others," Roberts said.
When some of the participants were
asked what they thought about girls
weight lifting, their replies were
positive. "I think it is very good for
a girl to want to trim down her
shape," Anderson said. Roberts said
that he thinks that "it'sgood up until
a certain extent." ' A
Last spring was the first year at N HS
that an extensive weight lifting
program had been offered. In the past
some students have done some weight
lifting at Santa Fe lllliddle School
'with P.E. teacher Rick Whitfield.
It looks like weight training will pay
off for the Railers at NHS.

A new voyage begins
As the balloon Iumbers down and the journey
seems at its end, it is onlybeginning. We reflect upon
the events that occurred. We look to the future with
wonder of what we'll experience.
Experience is what allows us to grow. We've grown
a lot since our journey began. This growth is impor-
tant for it allows us to meet a level of-awareness with
ourselves. We grow emotionally and mentally and par-
take in others'lives, allowing them to grow also.
There is no limit. Everyday is a learning experi-
ence. We acknowledge the future with uncertainty.
We begin a new journey each day.
It's been a rare scene: Newton High School under a foot of snow. New-
ton received its first big snow the first of February.

Tennis 84 golf
Railers swing into action 'A
With five returning lettermen, Mike
Hershberger, Troy Reusser, Mike
Baugh, Steve Regier and David Karst.,
the outlook for the 1982 golf season
was good. But due to bad weather and
playing conditions scores were not
good. "The conditions this year were
some of the worst in all my years of
coaching, but overall we had a real
fine season," commented Coach Ben-
Going into the last meet of the sea-
son, the team was third in the Ark
Valley behind Hutchinson in first and
Derby in second. Newton placed fifth
in the final meet and therefore took
fourth place in the valley league be-
hind Hutchinson, Derby and Arkansas
"It's been a competitive year,"
said Todd Christian, sophomore. The
Boys' Tennis team "has done well in
all its meets."
The team consists of four seniors:
Robert Bunner, John Button, William
Hanna, and Dave Hrdlicka, one
sophomore, Todd Christian and one
freshman, Jay Franz. "The whole
team worked together, it wasn't just
one player," Christian said.
Although only two members will be
returning in I983 the future looks
good for the Boy's Tennis team.
John Button, senior, keeps his eye on the ball
as he prepares his power serve.

The 1982 track season was tilled
with breaking old records and making
new ones! Todd Akers ranked second
in the state in the quarter mile, broke
the high school record in the 400-
meter with a time of 49.9. "The track
season for the boys has been one of
pleasure and surprise," Coach Akin
Other outstanding team members
were Brett Barnhart, 13' in the pole
vaultp Robert Brown, 2:00 in the half
mile, and Scott Tingen, 13' in the pole
vault, 4:30 in the mile and 2:00 in the
The girls' track team also had a
very successful and rewarding year.
"The leadership from the four senior
girls,lChris Capps, Shellie Franz,
Tamara Girrens, and Tammy Holde-
man,l gave us the scoring for our suc-
cess this season," Coach Capps com-
ew record set
Shelly Dicken, Lorinda Dodd, and
Barb Noyes were consistent per-
formers for the juniors, with Dodd
holding the 300-meter hurdle record
for the school.
Helen DeSmith, Nancy Rempel,
Mary Ruder, and Eileen Schwartz
were the top sophomores. Schwartz
has one of the top 5-A 400-meter dash
times in the state.
Five freshmen have moved up to
varsity this year, Marie Baugh, Karla
Ford, Sharon Regier, Stacey Rhoades,
and Lori Witzke. "All five of these
young ladies have competed like
veterans and have gained much ex-
perience for their future endeavors,"
Coach Capps said.
By combining both the boys' and
girls' track scores NHS won the travel-
ing trophy at Campus.

This was a very good year for
softball and baseball with all three,
varsity and J.V. baseball, and softball
teams having winning records.
Even though plagued by rain and
rainout games, both Varsity and
Junior Varsity baseball had winning
seasons. An important part of the
success of the team was the returning
starters, of nine players, seven were
seniors with experience: Danny
Sauceda, Scott Castleman, Bernie
Pearson, Steve Arellano, Kent Rich-
ards, Alan Denno, and Dwight Port-
Softball, with only a varsity team
this year, was also very successful.
Their winning record can be attri-
buted partly to experience but not
wholly with many freshman starters.
Seniors on the team were Mary
St. Clair and Lisa Okle.
"We had a very good year. Three of
our losses were by one run in the last
game so we were still in every game.
All the players showed a great deal of
enthusiasm and had a lot of fun," JV

A strong pull to the finish
The girls' swim team has had one
of their best seasons this year, with a
record of 6 and 6,
A lot of girls broke last year's
records and even had some State
times: K. Garcia, junior had a State
time in 50-yard freestyle, 27.6 and
lVl. Royston, senior broke her best
record in 100-yard butterfly from
1:15.25 to 1:12.9.
Although the freshman dominat-
ed the team, there was still a lot of
returning lettermen that helped the
team out as a vvhole.

Darlene Kehler, senior, splashes through the

worked with the girls on learning
hovv to think through the strokes
before a meet. She would have them
lay down and shut their eyes. She
would talk to them saying, "Let
all your tension flow through you
into the ground." She told the
girls to tighten every muscle one at
a time to help them relax. Every
now and then she would even treat
them to a back-rub. The girls could
tell a difference in their swimming 'if' 'Z'

'Caught in the Villain's Web,
bit of nostalgia
A hero, a heroine, a dastardly
villain, a crotchety old vvoman ....
No, it was not "General Hospital."
lt was the melodrama "Caught in the
Villain's Web," or "IVlore Sinned
Against than Sinning" written by
Herbert E. Swayne.
A bit of nostalgia was brought out
through the melodrama. There was
the piano player, senior Ken Janzen,
and the sign-carrier, junior Nikki
Stahly, who helped to carry out the
old-fashioned theme. ,
Renee Angle, junior, played Felicity
Fair, the persecuted heroine. Scott
Mathews, sophomore, played the
manly-bossomed hero Malvern
Larkfield. Lisa Zimmerman, sopho-
- -,- -., 'A
more, played lVlrs. Regina Larkfield,
lVlalvern's hard-hearted mother.
Christy Laubhan, junior, played Lana
Larkfield, lVlalvern's little sister. Troy
Lavender, sophomore, played
Brochton, the Larkfield's butler.
Valerie Smith, sophomore, played
Denise, the French maid. David
Learned, freshman, played Cyrtl
Bothingwell, the dastardly villain.
Karen Heidel, freshman, played Nella
l-largrave, the girl with unreturned
love from lVlalvern. Jan Heidebrecht,
sophomore, played Nella's mother
lVlrs. Hargrave. Richard Learned,
sophomore, played Dr. Belch, lVlrs.
Gazing into each others' eyes, Scott Mathews
and Renee Angle, share a tender moment. G

Prom 8L graduation
Making lasting memories
When the afternoon sun slowly
rolls into the western sky, anticipation
for the night to come finally becomes
Extravantly dressed in our formal
wear we are greeted by administration
in their London police attire which
emphasizes the theme of the night,
Guard Neely and his fair Queen Kurr
welcome us as we enter the London
Township and advise us of the festivi-
ties ahead for our royal visit.
As the night progresses, our en-
counter with the night air and fog
slowly drifts over us while we take to
the streets for a dance of special
memories. For those who prefer to sit
on a park bench under a London
street lamp, a courtyard is available.
With starry eyes from the flash of
the camera for photographs, our
adventure through the London Town-
ship has truly become an experience
that will be treasured forever.
Kathy Smith, Lorraine Smith and their daties sit
at one of the quiet tables.Q A

Prom photographs by Jim Stucky Photographics
As we near the end of the school
year and the excitement of prom and
other events pass, we approach com-
mencement. lt is when we look at all
the special memories we spent with
friends and the good times we shared
that made our high school years
Graduation is an event that comes
once in a person's life. Graduation is
a time when we are together perhaps
for the last time. It is a time when we
look back on our high school years
and then look ahead to the future.
When the time comes for us to walk
up on the stage and receive our
diploma, we suddenly realize that this
is what we have gone through school
for. We have completed our goal and
have a feeling of self-worth and a
sense of excitement about what the
future holds for us.
