1985 proved to be an important year for Newton High School and the commun-
ity. As the school turned the golden age of 100, citizens of Newton decided it was
time to have an all out celebration.
The celebration officially began August 30 with an official ribbon-cutting, flag-
raising, opening day. The year was dubbed Railer 100.
Although the centennial brought about definite changes for the year, when one
looked into a classroom, the locker section or the commons, students seemed un-
affected. Everyone still had to put up with final exams, staying in class during
break and getting sent around the long way to the lunch line.
Many preparations were made to make this a year to remember. Collectors items
sucn as the pewter belt buckle and Railerman were sold The programs ofthe ath
letic events the school paper the NEWTONIAN and even the RAILROADER
were all changed to commemorate the centennial
Everyone anticipated the Grand Renunion Week June 1016 1985 Activities
planned for the week were a musical over 50 class renunions a bar b que athletic
tournaments concerts and tours

The school now known as Santa
Fe Middle School is pictured here
when It was newly built. During
the times it was NHS it was added
on to four times.
Although Newton High School is celebrating its 100th birthday,
isn't celebrating all the years it has been in the building that the
ass of '85 will know as its alma mater. ln fact most students
ink that there were only two high school buildings, the present
ie and the school which is now known as Santa Fe Middle School.
tis belief may be attributed to the fact that of the five NHS high
hool buildings Santa Fe and the present high school are the only
io buildings still in existence.
The other three schools were known as Lincoln, lVlcKinley and
ioper. The first commencement ceremony was in 1886 in Lincoln
hool at 4th and Ash Streets. There were only eight graduates
tich were all female.
ln 1887-88 the seniors graduated from lVlcKinley School located
College Block and Pine Street. lt was built in 1887 by Hanna
d Koch Construction for 34,000 There is no known photograph
this building which was used as the high school.
In 1888 two new schools were built for 330,000 each. A new
:Kinley was built and the "unsafe clapboard" building known as
irfield was torn down and in its place the new school dedicated
he present NHS building where the 100tl'1 birthday Will be Celebrated.
Cooper for Superintendent J.W. Cooper was built and used for the
graduating classes from 1889 to 1913.
ln early 1913 a bond for 385,000 was approved for a new high
school which included a two-story building with a gym and audi-
torium. This is where Santa Fe Middle School now is. This was the
first building that went by the name Newton High School. The class
of 1914 was the first class to graduate from this building.
A new high school was proposed in 1925 but was rejected by the
community. An extra building was built on Broadway for S40,000.
This building was known as the Annex and was put to use in the fall
In 1934 Lindley Hall was proposed. ln 1935 Lindley Hall was
dedicated and used. ln 1938 Lindley Hall was expanded and the
High School moved into the Broadway building as the old high
school was used for the middle school.
The class of 1974 was the first senior class to graduate from the
present high school. lt is here that the school will celebrate its
birthday and alumni will reminisce on the memories of the last
100 years that have been made in NHS, in all five locations.

Theclass of 1985 was special because it was the 100th class to
graduate since NHS first began. Asked how they felt about being
apart of the Centennial class, this is how some seniors responded.
Lori Hiebert said, "lt's an honor to be part of the centennial. l
wouldn't change being a part of it for anything."
Kevin Penner had a different feeling, according to him, "lt's
no big deal."
Aaron Anderson jested, "lt's the most exciting thing that's ever
happened to me."
Mark Akin said, "lt makes no difference to me."
Dick Bevan said, "lt just doesn't matter. lt's a lot of work for
Some people took a different approach. Karla Ford said she was
Kim Kaufman thought it was neat.
lVlarie Baugh said, "l think it's kind of neat, because it only hap-
pens once and we were born that year."
Briana Stark said, "lt's neat because it's something special Newton
is doing and it's for the community not just our class."
Kim Pennington said, "l think it's neat with all the events planned
and the community getting invoIved."
Lora Davis said, "l'm glad l'm going to be a part of something
that's as special as this even though l'm not actively a part of it
Joanne Juhnke feels it's an honor, but somewhat overrated.
lVlarty Loane said, "I think it's pretty gamongui lgreatl because
the 100th year represents a lot of pride and dignity."
Larry Thompson feels, "lt's a devastating honor. l'm greatly sad
that there can't be a 100th class for everyone."
Janelle Gaeddert said, "lt's totally awesome because we get so

Senior Lisa Haxton, employee of Katydid, one
the fashion stores in Newton, models some of
clothes that-were in style in 1984-85.
During the past 100 years styles have changed, These styles range any,
thing from clothes to hair to glasses. Shown below with the "in" style
of hair are Heide Wentz, junior and Barb Rodgers, graduate of 1966.
Shown with the "in" glasses are Nlike Goering, senior and Mike Schill,

Through the years fads have brought people together as one. From the '5Os with
poodle skirts and hulla-hoops, through the '7Os with bell bottoms and disco, to the '80s
with parachute pants and break dancing, generations have been identified by their fads.
ln the '80s fads have centered around individuality. Clothes have become less conser-
vative, hairstyles have gone from the traditional cuts to new wave and colored styles, each
showing individuality of the person and his environment. The conservative students
chose the tailored preppie look, while more daring students created styles of their own
with baggy shirts, bright colors, chains, gloves and spikey hair.
Another fashion that came about during the '80s was girls piercing their ears more than
once and guys having one ear pierced.
A factor that influenced fashion in 1984-85 was rock videos and the new cable TV
People were entertained by TV music videos, TV video games, and home Video Cas-
sette Recorders which came with the electronic and computer era.
lVlost stusdents vacation with adult supervision, their family, a
church group. Two seniors, however, have changed this unwritten
rule. Steve Raber and Brad Sneed have made unsupervised trips out
of state during the past two summers.
This summer the two flew to Arizona where they went camping
at West Clear Creek Canyon, which is about 60 miles from Flagstaff,
where Steve's older brother lives.
Steve's brother dropped them off at the canyon and the two pro-
ceeded on their own for four days. "We didn't have a set sched-
ule," said Brad, "We just played it by ear."
They spent a lot of time fishing and they also enjoyed hiking.
During one hiking trip they left in the morning taking only their
cameras. When they left they staked their tent with three stakes,
even though they didn't need to because they have a tent that stands
on its own. When they returned to their camp after their hike
the tent was moved about 30 feet, almost in the water and the stakes
were in the same place. Something or someone had gone through
their packs and equipment, but nothing was missing. lt's still a
mystery as to what happened.
Seniors Brad Sneed-bottom and Steve Raber right, did a lot of hiking while
camping in Arizona.

Between fast food, school and homework, many students
participated in an extra curricular activity. lt required a
car, lanything on wheels would do,l a couple friends,
a blasting stereo, la ghetto blaster would do,l and a drivers
license. lLicense optionaI.l Prime time for this activity was
between the hours of 8 p.m. and midnight.
Personal preference dictated whether to perform this ac-
tivity on either Friday night, Saturday night or both.
For students with a restricted license, Sunday afternoons
would do. This activity consumed a lot of time,gas, and
new tires. lt was dragging Nlain. Or, if you were low on
dough, driving to the nearest hangout.
When searching for a hangout, there was a wide variety
to choose from. One had to be careful to choose a spot
which there was no "No Loitering" sign, for example,
Wen's One. One then had to buy a pack of gum or play
a video game to cover up true intentions.
Dillons was always popular for its wide open spaces and
good view of Main. Although it did have its drawbacks.
lf the sign wasn't exploding, a nice police officer might run
you off because it was unauthorized parking. But it was
ayways a good place to meet a friend, park your car and
pound the pavement.
The most popular hangout was lVlain Street Car Wash.
lFormerly RoBol. Ususally young males between the ages
of 15 and 19 were found either playing Hackysac or just
shooting the breeze.
On occasion, some people found it necessary to run their
car through the car wash to wash the egg off. Water bal-
looning and egg throwing became a popular sport among
some students, going against the traditional T.P. ing and
shoe polishing windows. But whenever students were
bored there was usually something happening on lVlain
Street to interest them.

Newton finally got a McDonald's which students found to be a good place to go ani
eat or to meet friends.
Lefta The new convience store Wen's One became an instant hangout and a placi
to turn around while dragging Nlain Street.

After much anxiety Janelle awarded Brad with the king medal
and Brad crowned Karla queen. Brad, Karla and their attendants
were escorted in a limousine to lunch at the Old Mill Restaurant.
The student body participated in Homecoming week by dres-
sing up for different days. Hawaiian, nerd, dressing-up and Punk
vs. preppie were ways that students dressed. Many strange out-
fits and hair-styles were concocted for each different day.
Classes competed against each other with money jars, the hall
decorations, dress-up days and the spirit assembly. Freshmen
won the dress-up days. Seniors won the money jars, the spirit
assembly and the hall decorations. Over-all seniors placed first,
sophomores second, and juniors and freshman tied for third.
During the week major, emphasis was placed on class compe-
tition, but at the end of the week the classes united to become a
spirited school which helped Newton win the homecoming
football game with El Dorado 49-8. The traditional parade and
bonfire were cancelled because of rain and there was no school
on Friday due to Teacher in-service.

Winter Sports Week was one week out of the school year that
students could take some time out and just have fun together.
Activities that kept the student body entertained were the Winter
Olympics, the Air Band Contest, Coronation, Dress-up Days and
the Sports Events.
The Dress-up Days kicked off the week with Monday being pajama
and robe day. Tuesday was college T-shirt and hat day. Wednesday
was dress-up day. Thursday was rainbow day where each class
wore the same color of T-shirt. Seniors wore red, juniors wore blue
sophomores wore controversial yellow T-shirts and freshmen wore
green. Why green? Because it was Thursday, iof coursel.
Tuesday was the Third Annual Air Band Contest. The auditorium
was overflowing with people of all ages. Students performed songs
by such groups as Whitesnake, Dio, Prince, Judas Priest, Madonna,
Cindi Lauper, the Supremes and many others. The groups Sorry
Charlie which performed "You Got Another Thing Coming" by
Judas Priest and Controversial Lace which performed "Let's Go
Crazy" by Prince tied for first place. On Tap which performed
Whitesnake's "Slow and Easy" captured third place.
Wednesday was Coronation. The royal court were Oueen Kay
Gering, King Larry Thompson, and their attendants, Sandee Buller,
Jay Franz, Jennifer Reid, and Matt Washburn. The decorations for
the Coronation had been changed with the aisle coming in the gym
at an angle and a fountain was added to the background.
Thursday was the Winter Olympics where each class and the
teachers had a team who competed against each other in games
that were fun for everyone. Seniors won the Olympics. Thursday
night the wrestling team beat El Dorado.
The week was wrapped up on Friday with a pep assembly and
basketball games against Derby. The girls lost 47-50 and the boys
had a disappointing game by losing on a last second shot, 49-51.
There was a dance following the games.

The school year was getting awfully long and it seemed that the end was far in the future.
Students and teachers were coming down with a bad case of winter blues. Spring break came
just in time to keep everyone in the high school from going crazy. Although Break was a lot
shorter then most people would have liked, no one was complaining about getting a couple of
extra days away from the school. n
The ski slopes in Colorado found an abundance of Newton High people. Students went with
friends, with their family, the recreation center, and the music department.
No one could miss vocal teacher Noel Slyvester's black eye when he got back. He was
jumping moguls and came upon some that gave him a bit of a surprise. He jumped one, looked
down and saw two directly below. His skis got stuck in the first mogul and his face caught the
last mogul, leaving a nice shiner.
Not everyone chose to go skiing over spring break. Some went to visit friends and relatives.
Others chose a warmer climate, such as Padre Island. Still others stayed home, relaxed and got
caught up on their sleep.
Music instructor Noel Sylvester masters the slopes. He sD0nsored a music ski
trip the last few days of spring break in order to glve the music students who
had to stay behind for their contest, an opportunity to have some fun also.
Glynis Wonders, junior, can still smile while caught down in the snow. Like

English is bu
Some people consider English another
boring' required class. But on the contrary,
English is the building block to a world of
creativity. Students have the oppurtunity
to expand on these bases and get involved
in a club called Writers Anonymous.
In English classes students study the
different styles of poetry, prose, short
stories and other types of writing to de-
termine which styles they enjoy writing.
Once a student finds he has a special talent
or interest in writing a certain type of poem,
short story or essay he has the oppurtunity
to express himself fyrther through the
writing club Writers Anonymous. A student
can turn in his work to the sponsors, Jan
Preston or Virginia Vanis and it will be
critiqued by fellow students. From this a
student discovers his strong points and weak-
nesses. Also the students can participate in
contests and they can work on the school
literary magazine "Connections."
"l've always been interested in writing and
Writers Anonymous has encouraged me to
further my skill," said Flick Chamberlin.
The Kansas Association of School Boards
chose "Connections" for the award for
Special Publication lmeritl. There was
only one such merit given in the state.
"Naturally we were very pleased we
thought we had a fine magazine and we
are glad to see others agreed with us,"
said Nls. Preston.

Food for everyone
Foreign language students found that food was an enjoyable part
of learning about other coutries.

ittle Red Riding Hoodj and junior, Kelly Clark
Der Wolf, act out the fairy tale in German,
a project in German ll.
Every year for the past seven years the foreign language students,
parents and teachers have had a banquet with foods like quiche,
crepes, tacos, enchilada, die Schwarzwalderkirschtorte, and die
Erdbeerbowle. Besides providing a chance to taste the foods of
different countries, the banquet gave teachers an opportunity
to meet parents and gave everyone a chance to get together as
a social event.
To plan the menu, students choose recipes from cookbooks. The
food has to meet the teacher's approval. Each dish is then pre-
pared by the student or his family.
Even though there is no special entertainment, everyone seems
to have alot of fun.
"The banquet is a lot of fun because there's different types of
food, and you can eat till whenever," said Rosa Ramos, senior.
Library adds computers
The library is recognized by many for
more than just a place to check out books.
Newton High School's library made a new
addition of a computer room last year. The
room consisted of only two computers and
now has expanded to six. Jan Saab worked
part-time as a resource person who helped
students with questions or helped find
Students and teachers used this room in a
variety of ways. Students learned word pro-
cessing and several different graphic pro-
grams. Drill disks were available for all for-
eign languages taught at NHS and in English
Many students used the computers for pre-
paration for ACT and SAT exams. Teachers
prepared lessons, exams, figured grades, and
assigned students to use program disks for
their course of study.
Hutchinson High School libraries made a
survey of other Kansas high school libraries
in 31 geographical diverse high schools in
Kansas, each with over 500 students.
Newton High School ranked second in
book circulation of volumes per students
and ranked third in the number of books per
student of the schools surveyed.

za parties and no work but many students
do not realize that STUCO has to go through
a lot of channels before it can get anything
accomplished. Student council must not on-
ly deal with the high school administration
but the school board as well. Students tend
to look at the things STUCO has not done
rather than the things STUCO has accom-
plished. Since this was the centennial year,
STUCO's job has been even a tougher one.
Being the connection between the student
body and the administration, STUCO has
many responsibilities. They sponsored the
Winter Olympics for Winter Sports Week,
Coronation for Homecoming, elections and
Prom for the rest of the student body.
Senior class officers were in charge of
picking out graduation announcements, jun-
ior officers made preparations for prom,
sophomores sold class rings, and freshmen
got things together for Freshman Frolic.
STUCO was also in charge of fund raisers
such as dances and selling various items such
as posters and railer stickers and bumper
Also as president, Raber appointed com-
mittees, chaired the meetings and helped or-
ganize specific tasks. Asked how he liked
being president of STUCO, Ftaber said, "lt's
not as hard as I thought it would be. It was a
lot of fun and I wish I could have gone to
STUCO camp last summer because I would
have learned a lot more."
For many senior STUCO members, this
was their first year in office. Haber, Senior
Class President Vicki Smith, Jay Franz, vice
president, Dena Thomas executive officer
and Lori Brown, girls representitive, all had
to make certain adjustments.
"Although this was my first year in of-
fice," said Brown, "and it took a while to
get used to things, I really liked being direct-
ly involved in the decision making process at
And there were enough decisions to go a-
round as STUCO arranged the annual blood
mobile and made contributions to IVlid-Kap,
a government run agency for low income

Centennial causes change
A hundred years ago Newton High School consisted of a one room school house located
at the corner of 4th and Ash, now known as Lincoln grade school. That was where the
first senior class, consisting of eight members, graduated.
Besides the school getting bigger, a lot of things have changed in the past century, and
the newspaper and yearbook staffs spent all year digging up information to inform their
readers about Newton High's history and the progress it has made.
This year the Newtonian staff changed the name of the paper to The Centennial New-
tonian and added to the nameplate a drawing of the Railer 100 beltbuckle, that repre-
sented the past and present: Every issue had a centennial feature story called "Out of
the Past" that appeared in a pst issue ofthe Newtonian paper.
The centennial edition of the Railroader had a late delivery this year instead of b '
distributed on the seniors' last day, as it has in the past, the yearbook came out during
Grand Reunion Week lJune 10-16l.
"By having the delivery during Centennial Week we hope to sell yearbooks to peo le
at the Centennial celebration," said Mary Anne Siefkes, publication advisor
Another change was that there was no Spring supplement, but instead a Mini-mag was
printed in the senior edition of the Centennial Newtonian. All spring events that could
not be printed in the yearbook were covered.
The NeWtOI'1 High yeal'bO0k H35 changed then it H35 been called "The AfteYQlOW," "New-
throughout the y9al'S. Th f' "
e irst yearbook was put tone, "Rodeo," "Newtonian," "The Vow!" and
together in 1904 and named the "Mirror," Since since 1945 has kept the name "Railroader."

A labor of love
"It's a labor of love. James Henry Lane
is just a fascinating subject to research. And
someday, after I retire, I'm going to sit down
and seriously write a biography." This is how
history teacher Gary Andrews describes his
hobby of researching Lane, who was a Kansas
senator from 1861 till his suicide in 1866.
Mr. Andrews has been researching Lane for
about 15 years and he says he still has a long
ways to go. "I haven't even gotten to his
papers yet, they're all housed up in Topeka.
I would have to go up there and spend three
or four months going through his papers."
Right now all of the information Nlr. Andrews
has accumulated on Lane has been in secondary
form taken from other biographies.
"If you get a good biography of Lincoln,
there are going to be references of Senator
Mr, Andrews said that there was some dis-
pute as to why Lane killed himself. "Loyd
Lewis, who was a fan of Lane, believes it was
the assasination of Lincoln and the end of the
War for Southern Independence," said
Andrews. "His life just lost its interest, so he
just put a revolver to his head. He didn't do
it exactly right because it took him 11 days to
die after he shot himself."
So far the biography is just a collection of
notes, it is not a manuscript or anything like
that so Mr. Andrews hasn't been looking for
a publisher yet.
"The only kind of publisher you could get
would be something like KU Press, because
you don't read a biography such as this would
be for escapismf' said Andrews. ."You don't
make money, that's what I'm saying, you write
a book like this, you don't make money. I'm
just doing it for the heck of it, it's a labor of
love," said Andrews.
lVlr. Andrews has picked Lane to do a bio-
graphy on not only because he is an interesting
man, but because he is not well known.
"People who know of Lane are fascinated by
him," said Andrews. "As one scholar has
said in an address presented to the Kansas
State Historical Association about 40 years ago:
'James Henry Lane is a man history has for-
gotten but he's a key, gigantic figure of the
War for Southern Independence and the drive
to make Kansas a free state. He's a leading
figure in that time period of the territorial
history of Kansas. And people aren't aware
of that, he's just been forgotten."'

Computer class offered
Business Mathematics taught by Larry
Barnhart was not any ordinary math class. It
did not have Algebra or Calculus, subjects
that are taken in regular math classes.
In the class, subjects like payroll, taxes,
wages, and percents were covered. Students
also learned how to save money on bargains
when shopping, by using a pocket calculator.
Along with Business Mathematics a class in
Computers was offered.
Computers were beginning to be used a lot
in homes and in businesses. NHS offered the
Computer class so that students learned how
to use computers and were able to keep up
with the computer age.
To go along with the computers class the
library had a computer room for students
with computers who did not want to enroll
in the Computer Science class, or just
wanted to learn the basics of computers.
Jan Saab was supervisor in the room and
she helped the students with subjects such as
writing term papers, reports, or computer
Teachers and students alike benefitted
from the room. Teachers used it for writing
up tests or crossword puzzles. Students used
it for learning. There were two rules in the
room: no games and no copying material.

Siemens. After taking this class the student can decide if he wants to continue in

Clubs aim for state
Every high school athletes' ambition is to meet personal goals,
have a winning season, and most of all to place high at state. Not on-
ly athletes have these goals but students in Distributive Education
Clubs of America and Junior and Senior Office Education Associa-
tion also have these ambitions. Through out the school year students
study skills that will be tested at the state conference.
"They work on units such as filing, typing, telephone techniques,
letter writing, data processing and word processing just to name a
few," said Joanne Supernois, Senior OEA sponsor.
lVlost students perform better in some subjects than others. "i'd
say my best category would be either General Clerical ll or Business
Proofreading because I do that kind of stuff at work everyday," said
OEA senior Linette Ligette.
The club sponsors seem confident that their teams will do well this
year. "l think we will do well, we should place in the top five
teams," predicted Roger Erickson, Junior OEA sponsor.
"l think we can make it to nationals if we continue to work hard
until state competition," said Bair.
The students also feel pretty assured that they will do well. "The
competition is going to be real tough, but I hope that l can do well,"
said OEA senior Brenda Boese.
Newton has had a tradition of good teams in the past. "We have
usually been in the top three at state," said Supernois. Three years
ago OEA was voted Chapter of the Year and DECA had a student go
The state contest is a good motivator thoughout the school year.
"lt gives the students something to work for," said Erickson,
"they can see how they stack up in the skill areas."
"The students can demonstrate acquired skills and competencies
through competition with other students," said Bair.
And while the student demonstrates his skills the goal of being the
best is always in mind.
"Ranking high is the goal of each student so that she may go on to
the National Conference at the end of April," said Supernois. "These
students have the motivation it takes to do well and I believe that
they will succeed."

HERO Changes to OHE
HERO, which stands for Home Econ-
omic Related Occupations has been offered
as a class for about eight years in Newton.
HERO is also the name of the Home Econ-
omics club. State advisers for Occupational
Home Economics felt it was time for a
change because people were confusing the
club with the class. The class's new name is
OHE which stands for Occupational Home
The seven occupations covered in OHE
are Cosomotology, Health, Foods and
Nutrition, Clothing and Textiles with
Fashion Merchandising, Child Care, Home
Management, and Interior Design.
OHE activities are divided into two sec-
tions: indirect and direct. ln the indirect
class skills like interviewing, finding a job,
and career awareness are covered. ln the
direct class students all work together in
the seven major areas ot Home Economics
for one semester. Second semester they
pick one of the seven areas to study indi-
vidually. Students working in Cosomo-
tology get a "flip on" la head with real
hairl. They do a long hair cut then can
either perm, dye, or do a short hair cut,
but all students are required to do a cut.
HERO activities include two monthly
meetings and the club members decide on
what they want to do. They usually have
one fun and one educational activity each
month. One of the fun things they do each
year is have a fashion show which helps
publicize what HERO is all about.
A one-year follow up is done on all OHE
graduates. Usually about 75 to 80 percent
continue in the field of Home Economics.
Some of the other 20 percent are still in

Auto Mechanics and Vocational Agricul-
ture lVo-Agl are two classes, which also have
clubs that teach teenagers something they
can do for a living.
ln class the Auto Mechanic students work
on their own car as well as other people's
cars. ln doing this the class is run practically
like a real mechanics shop. Students figure
out what's wrong, sometimes with the help
of teachers, Mills or Steve McCall, then they
order any needed parts and fix the car. When
all this is completed the young business men
send out an actual bill.
Students also have an opportunity to enter
certain contests. The major one is the Ply-
mouth Trouble-shooting contest. Kelly
Franz, Greg Brown, Richard Monarez are
going to Plymouth this year. Students take a
written test first then they move on to work
on a car which has been bugged. The winner
in each state goes on to Nationals to

show this year. This show was open to any-
one who wanted to enter a car in any of
these three catagoriesg ll strip cars 2l street
cars and 3l open.
As far as Vo-Ag classes are concerned the
teens in these classes also learned about an
occupation. Students learn about costs and
profits involved with farming and had the
opportunity to join FFA- Future Farmers of
America. This club expands the teens' ideas
and they also attend contests, such as
Both Vocational Agriculture and Auto
Mechanics are classes where students can see
and try opportunities in a career.
Theft is something that is on the minds of may administrators, and this
year's welding students did something about it.
Two welding students, Shawn Kessler and Alan Terbovich, developed a
security device to prevent football equipment such as jerseys, pants and
travel bags from being stolen from the boys locker room.
The security device, made of angle iron and flattened expanded metal
took about two weeks to build. The two students worked only three hours
a day painting and priming the metal surfaces. The students built the de-
vice for half of what it costs to buy it.
"I feel this project is useful from the aspect that the two students had to
apply several skills which involved operating machines, welding and blue
print reading," said Tim Lednicky, welding teacher. "Plus I feel these two
students developed pride in their work because they were building som
thing for their high school."

Art enhances creativity
j In a lot of classes students are confined to working out of books or using set rules and
jheories. This was the case with junior Joanie Rucker. "Since it was my junior year I had a
bt of hard classes so I dropped Analytic Geometry and took art because it's an easier class.
t's fun and easy to relax. You can draw what you wantg there are not a lot of restrictions,"
Art classes give students a break and provide students with the chance to express them-
elves by working with an idea of their own creation. Many artist agree, creativity is the key
jo being a good artist.
I Students have different reasons for taking art classes. Junior Arlen Kaufman liked working
in the wheel in ceramics. "l like working with my hands and playing in the clay," he said.
Freshman Marty Adler was enrolled in Art I. "l took art because I've been taking it since
he fifth grade and I like to draw," he said.
i Some students had influences that played a part in their getting into the art field. "I took
geramics because my aunt is a potter," said junior Alan Lehman. "She does pottery for a
iving," he said.
Sophomore Tony Asla's dad is a commercial artist. "l do apprentice work for my dad
iometimes," he said.
Some students are considering continuing in art after high school.
Asla is planning to attend an art institute after high school. Sophomore Lorie Preheim
aid, "l'Il probably go into it lartl in college because I enjoy art a Iot."
Senior Stephanie Gasaway has pretty well decided on studying in the art field. "I'm plan-
ing to get a start on an art related field like interior design my first year of college and see if
like it. I think I will enjoy it because design is one of my favorites," she said.

Vocal students express their artistic ability by
contributing to the "gum tree." At least it keeps
the gum out of their mouth and off the bottom
of the chairs.
Noel Sylvester, Vocal instructor, gets up rrom
the piano to instruct his students.
Get up and go
Each year a few students have the honor
of being initiated into Railaires. The new-
coming Railaires get initiated by being
awakened at about 2 a.m., on a school night
to go eat at Drubers with the Railaire mem-
bers. The initiates are not allowed to dress to-
this "come-as-you-are" party. However, last
year the initiates were to wear trashbags and
use the twist ties as ponytail holders. The
Railaires returned home about 4 a.m.
"The first thing I did when they woke me
UD was I saw my glasses sitting on the dres-
ser. So l picked them up and threw them
under my bed because l'm embarrassed of

Professional at work
Keith Woolery returned to Newton to be-
gin his teaching career as the new band dir-
ector. Woolery, who was a 1967 NHS grad-
uate, directed the marching band, stage band
and pep band.
Woolery directed a percussion ensemble
named Super Styx, which was made up of
ten select drummers who were his students.
Super Styx used over 50 different percussion
instruments in a regular concert.
Besides giving private lessons, teaching and
working with Super Styx, Woolery also
played in a band named The Keith Woolery
Band. Woolery toured with this band to 39
states and Canada during the past eight
years. "l've spent most of my life as a per-
fomer, not a teacher," said Woolery. "l
don't think I could have left college and just
gone into teaching and been very satisfied
with myself. l wanted to prove l could make
it as a performer, which I did."
The Keith Woolery band, made up of only
three people including his wife, was started
by Woolery and his wife to pay't'heir way
through college and get married. The band
played hits such as "Ghostbusters," Van
Halen and even selections from the 50s and
"You've probably heard me playing drums
on commercials if you listen to KEYN or
T-95. My reputatuion is in the versatality to
come up with different sounds," said
Some examples of these sounds were un-
derwater effects and frying bacon. Some-
times he used instruments and in other cases
such as frying bacon a piece of cellophane.
Woolery commented on his goals for the
band department, "l'm hoping to increase
the size of the program and to develop the
musicianship and to keep the strong tradi-
tion that NHS has but to expand it in other
areas that I can put my expertise into."

IVlany students find fun and fitness through aerobics, which is
exercise put to music and dancing while getting in shape.
According to Janis Wilkey, physical education instructor, the
music helps motivate people in working hard. lVlrs. Wilkey has taken
classes at the Newton Recreation Commission and has been involved
in aerobics for three years. lVlrs. Wilkey is now teaching Advanced
P.E. which consists of aerobics on Mondays and Wednesdays, other
activities such as weightlifting on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and
running the mile on Fridays.
Sherry Koehn, junior, commented, "lt's a fun way to get in shape
and you don't feel like you are working that hard but you really
are." Aerobics was introduced at NHS just last year and lVlrs. Wilkey
seems to be well pleased with the amount of participation of the
"Some of my students are working on their own routines that
they have made and that pleases me to see a great interest," said
Nlrs. Wilkey. The interest that is involved is playing its part in.
-proving that aerobics will continue at NHS.
The enjoyment of the activity pleases many such as Becky Seibel,
junior, who commented, "It's a lot of fun and it gives me a break
from all my other classes."

Students build cradles
Special Education is more than just classroom learning. Many students'
activities involved participation outside of class. They competed in the
Special Olympics, cooked special food, made Cabbage Patch cradles, and
received training that will prepare them for the future.
For example, the students went shopping at Towne East Square Shop-
ping Center, and had a ball, said Miss Deb Hetley, special education
teacher. Each student got S5 to spend on a Christmas present for another
student. They all drew names and went off in small groups by themselves.
The students were responsible for picking out a present, looking at the
cost of the gift, and receiving the right amount of change.
Miss Hetley said, "The purpose of the trip was to give the students the
opportunity to coordinate what they do in the classroom with money and
teach them social experiences as weIl."

Clubs inspire skill
What two clubs at NHS both involve stra-
tegy, concentration and imagination? They
are the Photography Club and the Chess
Club. To many these two clubs may seem
uninteresting - even though they have lots of
activities that everyone can relate to.
The Photography Club had Kodak slide
presentations throughout the year. These
shows taught the students new and different
techniques in modern photography. The
club officers organized the club.
Maurice Benniga, club sponsor said, "I'm
always willing to help the kids - but l like
them to make their own plans." During one
club period, foreign exchange student,
Gerald Hahn, showed slides.
The Chess Club was open to anyone to
play chess during club period. The students
kept track of their scores and then they were
always sure to play people of their own
level. And at the end of the year the person
with the most points was awarded and pro-
claimed the champion.
The top six or eight players of the club
were picked for a team for state. This year
state was held at Independence, Kans. Terms
are being discussed to hold the state cham-
pionship at NHS next year.
Tony Soper, Chess Club sponsor, said, "l
think NHS has one of the best chess teams in
the 5A schools."
Through these two clubs students learned
to concentrate and use strategy to either
make a critical move in chess or decide what
way a photograph could be taken the best
way. Also a student can express imagination

A strong finish
This year's College Bowl team ended a very successful season by taking first place at the
State College Bowl. Sponsor Barbara Girard said that this year was one of the best years
the college bowl has had. "lt was also one of the best endings. We met a lot of strong teams
at state that we usually don't compete with. The kids did very well," she said.
State was held March 22 at Wichita South High School. The team defeated Sacred Heart
of Salina in the final round 40-0.
Captain Joanne Juhnke also felt very satisfied about the season. "Overall I felt really well,
she said. "lt was real exciting taking state."
The state team consisted of Juhnke, senior, Manuel Hertwick, senior, Keith Neufeld and
David Weigand, sophomores, and Carl Juhnke, freshman.
The High-O team also had an impressive season. The team started the season off by taking
first place at the second annual Winfield Invitational Scholars Bowl at Winfield High School
on Nov. 21. NHS was undefeated for the day defeating 15 other high school teams.
The NHS team tied for second in the qualifying round of the Butler County Community
College and KAKE-TV High-O competition on Jan. 5.
After competing with 83 teams, Newton tied with Collegiate for the second of the tele-
vision spots. The openings were filled by accumulating the most points. Ark City received
the most points and placed first.
The team lost in the first round, however, to Wichita Southeast. The game was taped at
KAKE-TV and was aired lVlarch 10.

Cheerleading: Not just for fun
lVlost people think cheerleading is all fun
and games but actually it takes a lot of hard
work and dedication.
"The hardest part of being a cheerleader is
getting no response from the crowd and
trying to be fair to all the sports," said
lVIeIisa Gronau, junior.
Trying to get the crowd motivated seems
to be a big problem on most cheerleaders'
minds. Another big part of cheerleading is
trying to get pin-ups and signs made in time
If it's so hard why would anyone want to
be a cheerleader? To help school spirit and
give players support is a common reason
among cheerleaders. "l want to be a cheer-
leader because l'm not in any sport myself,
and I like to help the people who are in
sports do their best," said Krista lVlcCourry,
sophomore. "I like it when the crowd gets
pepped up and helps us in our chants to
cheer on our pIayers." -
The cheerleaders along with new sponsors,
Terri Elder and Elesa Garcia saw changes this
year from last. "We work a lot harder. Our
squad is closer to each other and we are
closer to the guys and girls. lt's a lot of
fun!" said Jo Lagree, junior.

Frogs and Krauts at it again
In the midst of spring, war took over the
halls of NHS. Once again Frenchmen were
pitted against Germans. The following are
personal accounts of the war.
French student Kathleen Hayes, sopho-
more, said, "What started out to be a slight
rearrangement of the desks in the French
classroom by a couple of French and Ger-
man students turned into the biggest rivalry
ever between French and German students.
"It eased the boredom of school that most
people were feeling this time of year.
"At first, French students moved the desks
and pictures, and they blamed it on the Ger-
mans. The French were expremely creative
with their designs, secretiveness and their
capturing of flags as well as students.
"The teachers got a real kick out of this
war tool They too were a lot of help for
their loyal countrymen. They helped trans-
late many message that otherwise would
have been left in limbo.
"After the Lbarbed wire and the hostages,
the two language teachers formed a truce on
April 12 so that there wouldn't be any blood
German militant Jeff Kristenson, said,
"Germany was not guilty, at least not this
time. The actions taken against France prior
to the official declaration of war were the
brain child of a couple of French students
and some 'neutrals.' The French room was
arranged in the shape of a swastika, but no
German students were responsible.
"Then,German students left messages on
the board making it clear that it was French
students who were responsible. Of course,
when we started writing the messages, we
couldn't resist putting in an insult or two.
And that's exactly what happened.
"The next morning Hitler marched into
the first hour French class and tried to
teach them some German vocabulary.
"This incident prompted the French re-
venge. They kidnapped aGerman student,
publicly humiliated him and the worst thing
of all .. .they took our flag."
"Well, it started when Gerald, the foreign
exchange boy, was spying on our room:
when all of a sudden all of the Frenchies
stormed our room with water guns and toilet
paper. At first I just ignored them, but then
about four or five of them grabbed me and
dragged me off as a hostage. When l got to
their room, they put me in a cage and treat-
ed me brutally and ruined my clothes. With
the toilet paper they had left they wrapped
me up and made blood stains all over it.
After all these traumatic events they sent me
back all wrapped and looking like a fool,
but that's OK because we will get them
back," said released German POW Fred

lt was football season and the big Kapaun
game was fast approaching. Juniors Kelly
Clark and Sherry Koehn decided to go to
Bethel College and practice a little basket-
ball. The Railerettes had been trying to
think of a money-raising project for the
club, and right in the middle of a jumpshot
Koehn did just that. Koehn said, "Pam
Myrick ljuniorl had said we should put up
banners for lVlcPherson, the banners would
have a bullpup with an X through it. On our
way to Bethel, Kelly and l were trying to
think of a money maker, and l thought up
Kapaun Busters T-shirts for the Kapaun
After that Clark took over. "We had a
Bailerettes meeting, Sherry had thought of
the Kapaun shirt before, so l brought it up
and the club decided to sell them," said
Clark. Brad Sneed, senior, designed the shirt.
The Ghost-Busters movie was going strong,
so Sneed took the logo of the ghost with the
red cirle and a slash on it and used it as a
guide. l-le substituted a character of a cru-
sader, the Kapaun mascot, for the ghost,
and the shirts were ready for printing.
The shirts sold for S5, and the club made
S500 in profits. Pearl Kurr, vice-principal
in charge of activities, said that the shirt sale
was the only sale that had been really suc-
cessful during the school year.
According to Janis Wilkey, sponsor of
Bailerettes, profits from the sale will be used
to help fund athletic department projects.
Some examples of projects include help
funding a stationary bike for rehabilitation
or fixing up the varsity locker rooms.
ln addition to the money made from the
shirt sale, the football team benefitted also.
Koehn said, "Everybody wore the shirts to
the game, so the football team could look in
the stands and see the student body was be-
hind them. l think it really fired the team

cipated in sports. Although exact figures are not available, it is sure that there are "more
than two" athletic alumni around. So it is not surprising that some of these Alumni have
come back to Newton to either teach, coach or both. Such is the case with Ivan Schirer,
math teacher, Ken Franz, vocational teacher, and Jack Thaw, teacher and wrestling
coach. Each participated in one or more sports at NHS in their time. 5
For Schirer, who participated in football and track, in 1957 just about everyone the
football team played was a rival. All the teams in the Ark Valley at that itme, Wichita
East, North and West, Ark City, Winfield, Wellington, EI Dorado and Hutchinson called
for a heated match-up. But Hutch seemed to bring out the worst in Newton fans.
"Hutchinson seemed to bring out negative sportsmanship from fans," said Schirer,
"not only for high school students, but also alumni." NHS had quite a reputation, not in
football or track, but mainly in basketball. By 1957, the Railer basketball teams had al-
ready won 14 state championships. Although Newton was nearing the end of an era of
dominating high school basketball, lthe next championship would come in 1979 after a
23 year Iapse.l Schirer remembers the words of "Deke" Wiley, a former basketball coach
at Wichita North High.
"If we won the Valley, we had a fair year. lf we won the state, we had a good year. If
we won at Newton, we had a great year."
Franz, who participated in basketball and track in 1958, remembers Schirer from high
"l remember that he was a lineman on the football team," said Franz, "but I did not
play any sports with him."
But if there is one sport that has been consistant in producing state champions, it is
wrestling. This is one thing that has not changed since Thaw wrestled in 1966.
"The wrestling tradition is the same. We were strong then and we are strong now,"
said Thaw. "We have had only four coaches in our 26 years of wrestling."
Thaw, who has been coaching since 1979, did not know what to expect after graduating
"I didn't plan on coaching. In fact I wasn't sure if I would go to college. I tried it to
see what it was like and I enjoyed it immensely, so I decided to coach as well as teach. I
didn't plan on coming back to NHS."

Coach Ron Gould sum-
marized the football season.
The team finished 8-1 and
captured the Ark Valley League Crown.
Gould said that he couldn't think of any
weak points for the team, but he had many
factors for the team's success. "The team
had a lot of quickness and desire, but l think
the real reason for our success was the hard-
work by a lot of guys, and the unselfishness
of 'this close-knit group," said Gould.
The high points of-the season were beating
rivals Ark City, Derby, and Hutchinson. The
only low of the season was the team's loss
to Kapaun Mount Karmel. Gould said he
wished he had the chance to play Kapaun
Many new records were set during the
football season. These included most points
scored in a season l229l, and most games
won in a season. ln fact, it was the best
season in the school's history.
Along with the team achievements came
many individual honors. Thirteen players re-
ceived all-league recognition, including 11
first team choices. Those players receiving
first team recognition were seniors Steve
Raber loffense and defensel, Ken
Cherryholmes, Jay Franz, Troy Girrens,
Brad Sneed, Rob Watkins, Brett Shirk, Tim
Stauffer, Dan Benninghoff loffensel, and
junior Mike Plummer. Making the second
team was junior Mikes Harvey, and
Benninghoff also made defensive honorable
mention. Senior Dan Benninghoff was
selected for the 1985 Shrine Bowl. And
Coach Gould was voted Coach of the Year in
the Ark Valley League.
Quarterback, Jay Franz, said, "When l'm on tl
sideline, I think about what ldid wrong and hc
to improve the next time on the field."

lthough the J.V. football
players did not have a lot of
experience, they still man-
aged to have a successful
season. The teamiended with a 4-4 record,
including sophomore games. Coach Roger
Erickson said, "The season went pretty well
considering practice time.. I had a lot of fun
and so did the kids."
The lack of practice time as a unit and the
small number of juniors on the team were
major weaknesses. Ninety percent of the
team was sophomores. Only six juniors were
on the squad. Coach Larry Barnhardt said
that inexperience did not play a major role
in all the games. "The inexperience of the
sophomores hurt us in a couple of games,
but it was not involved in all our losses.
The kids just needed to learn to believe in
themselves," said Barnhardt.
The team had many strong points to help
in the season. Coach Bud Akin attributed
the success of the team to physical ability,
desire, and knowledge of the game. Erickson
added that the team's aggressiveness was

Barnhardt moved up from the freshman
team and this was Erickson's first year
coaching. The coaches enjoyed the season
even though it was new to them. Erickson
said, "l hope the kids learned as much and
had as much fun as I did."
The freshmen football team also exper-
ienced some success, but in a different man-
ner. You couldn't measure our success on
our record. We were physically outmanned,
but we had very dedicated athletes. If you
measured our success by our improvement
over the season, we were very successful,"
said Coach Tim Swartzendruber.
Major reasons for the team's losses were in-
experience, inconsistency on offense, and in-
juries. Coach Noel Sylvester said, "Since
Newton doesn't have junior high compe-
tition against other schools, our team was
But the team managed to pull together
toward the end of the schedule and salvage
the season. "Our game against Buhler was

started having team unity, we started
winning our games," said Swartzendruber.

Wilkey, predicting the season must have
been like a Kansas weatherman tring to de-
cide whether tommorrow's weather would
be sunny or snowy.
"lt's hard to predict what kind of team
you will have before a season begins, but I
knew we didn't have any big hitters and that
we would have to work hard in order to have
a successful season."
It depends on what one's definition of

the season was not without certain high-
"I was pleased with the overall accom-
plishments this season," said Wilkey. "Two
definite highlights were placing second in the
Newton Tournament and beating McPherson
in the league which made us co-champs with

Coming up with the AVL co-title was no
easy task. The league must have seemed like
a piece of cake compared to the competition

where the squad accumulated most of its
For senior Cami Ford, the season actually
went better than she expected.
"To tell the truth I didn't expect much at
all. I still had a lot of bad feeling from last
year and I thought the season wouldn't be
too good. However, it turned out to be a
blast and the team got along real well. We
had a lot of great times and a lot of
memories. It would have been better to
have gotten to state. I think we deserved

state bid. Despite being practically injury
free this season, the Railers could not over

state. It was a bitter disappointment as the
squad had defeated Buhler rather handily at
the Newton Tournament.
"We played well in league play and some
other AVL teams did not play as well in
league as they did on tournaments," said
Wilkey. "Hutch was up and down and
McPerson didn't play their best during
league. We did."
"BuhIer played exceptionally well at sub-
state and we played well but not our best.
Buhler just played better on that particular
day," said Wilkey. "We have had our ups
and downs but have played hard and
enjoyed the game."

underclassmen would kick, all but one senior

Scott was enthusiastic about the Boy's
tennis team, and he had good reason with six
returning lettermen. These included seniors
Jay Franz, Mike Goering, juniors Brian
Webb, Chris Jones, Brian Krehbiel and

louder than ever, but who was that lady

Having a coach for a husband would de-

wife of head girls basketball Coach Bob
Graber, knows it has changed her life for the
better. "Bob's coaching has made our family
closer, we are all united in a central goal,"
lVlrs. Graber said. "The well being of our
family is of top priority with rne. If I didn't
feel basketball brought as much, if not more,
positive reinforcement to our lives as it de-
mands of our lives, l couldn't be as enthusis
astic as I am about the experience."
But a coaching career can change family
plans, such as what time to have dinner.
lVIrs. Grimmitt said, "He lCoach Grimmettl
spends 25 hours a week coaching and about
15 hours watching basketball on T.V. Before
l met Felix, basketball wasn't a part of my
life at all. Now it has become our lifestyle
to plan everything around basketball."
Not only is the coach's wife's life changed
by the sport, but also the coach's children.
lVlrs. Graber said, "The experience is positive
for the kids' lives. They get to go to practice
and be around 22 girls who make them feel
like number one. The children receive more
attention and positive feedback in one short
season than many children receive in years.
They are proud to say, 'That's my dad-he's

After the Olympics were held in Los Angeles last summer, gold medals and olympic
champions seemed to pop up everywhere, even in Newton.
In October, Lynette Woodard came to the high school and talked to the students.
Woodard was captain of the Women's 1984 Olympic gold medal basketball team.
Woodard, a native Wichitan and alumni of North High School, was also on the 1980
Olympic Team. In her speech to the student body, she spoke about achieving goals
through hard work.
Basketball gold medal winners were not confined to the Wichita area. Bill Lienhard, a
member of the 1952 gold medal team, is an alumni of Newton High School. Lienhard was
a 1948 NHS graduate and a member of Coach John Ravenscroft's "dream team."
Lienhard became a member of the olympic team because of the recognition he received
when he was in the starting line-up of the 1952 KU, NCAA championship team. His
senior year in high school Lienhard was the leading scorer in the state and selected to all-
state tournament team. Asked about winning the gold, Lienhard said, "lt was a terrific
thing to represent my country. One of the most thrilling things was when they played the
national anthem when they presented our medals."

ended up at 7-7. Coach Jim Erb was pleased
with the outcome of the season. "Player
development is a primary goal of the sopho-
more program and much improvement was
shown through out the year," said Erb.
On the freshman level, the squad finished
12-4 on the season, with three out of the
four losses being suffered at the hands of

strengths as over-all team speed, defensive
quickness, good passers, excellent team at-

more team, the freshman team got off to a
good start. After losing the first game, the
team won nine games in a row.

asketball is an ever changing
sport. Each year brings in a
new crop of players to re-
place the ones who have
moved on. J.V. girls coach Brad Cooper's
team was no exception. The winds of change
brought in a new coach and a team that con-
sisted mostly of sophomores.
"I didn't expect to do as well as we did
playing with all the sophomores we had,"
said Cooper, "Our opponents were teams
that consisted of a lot of juniors, that one
year can make a lot of difference. I was
pleased with our 8-8 record."
Along with change comes adjustment.
Cooper, who had coached girls at the intra-
mural level before replacing Edie Saylor as
the J.V. coach, had to make some changes in
his style of coaching.
"I've had to change my tone of coaching,"
said Cooper. "I'm not as firm with girls as
with guys. I think girls show their emotions
more than guys, which is good."
Sophomore Jill Bradbury, who had moved
from Moundridge, not only had to adjust to
a new town but a new'coach and new team-
mates as well.
"l had to adjust playing with different
people," said Bradbury, "I didn't know their

style is Kurt Harder, freshman girls coach.
His team finished the season with a I6-O re-
cord, a perfect season. While most players
and coaches dream of it, Harder's team has
"I didn't expect to go undefeated. But
once I saw how many good players I had,
how much depth we had, I knew we'd be
tough. l've never had this many talented
people on the court at one time."
On the way to an undefeated season, the
freshman squad amassed some impressive
stats. The team scored an average of 56
points while allowing opponents only 33
points per game. The average margin of vic-
tory was 23 points. The closest game came
against Derby with Newton coming out on
top by eight points. Derby never came that
close again as the Flailers beat the Panthers
65-42 in the Newton Invitational to end the
season on a perfect note.

nstead of a wrestling coach,
Jack Thaw might want to
turn his attention to track,
as a hurdling coach. His
young Railers squad had to overcome some
big obs. ,:Ies this season, the biggest one
being inexperience. But a slow start turned
into strong finish as Newton sent four
wrestlers to state, lseniors Willie Creamer,
Larry Thompson, Chris Fiangel and freshman
Mike Guhr,l and finished 14th as a team.
"We had a very young inexperienced
team," said Thaw. "Our effort was good in
the majority of the matches. We wrestled a
lot of sophomores. We only took four
wrestlers to state all but two of those
placed. We have a strong tradition at
Newton, wlien we take a wrestler to state,
they usually place."
Considering the competition, and taklng
only four wrestlers to state, 14th out of 31
teams is nothing to sneeze at. KMC, which
not only dominates football, is also building
a wrestling dynasty. The Crusaders have
taken the SA wrestling title for three years
in a row.

was a highlight," said Ed Fayette, junior. 1Rightj
"Being named the outstanding wrestler of the

said senior Larry Thompson who also finished
second in the state tournament.

Coliseum with all the classes competing
from 4A to GA.

The Railers might have done better if it
were not for an injury to sophomore Randy
Mathews and the loss of Todd Mathes.
"We lost Todd Mathes, he moved to
Georgia and we lost Randy Mathews, "

it is a virus that lies dormant throughout the

a week before sub-state. Sweaty hands and

only through competing in the state tour-

what this page is about.
But sometimes your best is not enough,
like the football team's loss to KMC, or the
boys basketball defeat in the first round of
the sub-state tournament at the hands of Mc-
Pherson. Buhler proved to be the spoilers for
both the girls volleyball and basketball teams
in sub-state play. Just as gymanstics and girls
tennis failed to qualify anyone for state.
Failing to make the state tournament does
not mean the season was a failure by any
stretch of the imagination, it only means
your best was not good enough.

Weather To Close
During the cold winter months when traveling was nearly
impossible, some times you wondered if you were going to
,have to get up and go to school. So you got up and turned on
the radio and listened to your school closing. lt was an easy
procedure, one that took no time at all. But is wasn't for
Clark Whiting, Superintendent of Newton Public Schools, Dis-
trict 373, who decided whether it was safe to travel safely to
school. "This is a decision that you can't appoint a committee
to study, or you can't table it to the next meeting. You have
to decide in a two-hour span," lVlr. Whiting said.
Keeping in mind two main objectives, lVlr. Whiting was con-
cerned for the safety of the school and keeping the school in
operation if at all feasible. Giving information to lVlr. Whiting
about rural conditions was Evan Johnson who used visual ob-
servations in Walton area and reports from'bu-s drivers in other
areas. Keith Peak reported on conditions at NHS, Chisolm,
12th Street and downtown area by 6:30 a.m. or earlier.
Richard Tonjes contacted Bob Parks about street conditions
and snow removal plans and reported this between 6:30 and
6:40 a.m. If a decision was made to close school, then lVlr.
Whiting or Karen Pulaski wouid call KOEZ-KJRG by 7
with the decision. This information was given to principals
and other stations as time permits.
Still thinking as all of this is an easy job? Well the question is
answered. Getting up and finding the information is the easy
job for the student. Remember Nlr. Whiting takes care of all

A La Carte Honored
Newton High's lunch program received special honors this year. Our
a la carte program seems to be something out of the ordinary. A la
carte meaning that you put your meal together dish by dish, getting
only what you wish to eat and paying for each item separately. The a
la carte, "Has helped upgrade our fiscal picture and our particiaption
figures," states lVlrs. Abney.
The regular lunch participation was not affected to a large degree.
An average of 200 customers per day are served from the a la carte
line. At least 150 of these students and staff members were persons
not participating in the school lunch program prior to the addition of
the a la carte line.
The YAC members help choose menu items that will satisfy student
demand. Some items are sold with a very small profit made while
others, such as milkshakes, have a larger profit.
According to lVlrs. Abney, besides helping the financial stability of
the school food service, "The a la carte line also creates very good
public relations with students and staff."

Students often have strange ideas about
zachers. They think of teachers as lacking
uman characteristics and being capable
f performing only in a class room. These
leas, however, are incorrect. Many teach-
's have otherwjobs outside of teaching.

S T UCO progresses through the ye ars The first student council was formed in 1919.
According to the 1920 yearbook, "Rodeo,'
"Believing that self control is one of the most worth-
while as well as one of the most difficult lessons to
be learned, and believing that this organization might
improve the spirit of the school, by fostering co-
operation between students and faculty, this organi-
zation was established. H
This first council was organized to include a boys
'and a girls council composed of 12 members each.
Today the student council has grown to be one of
the biggest organizations around.
The student council was formed mainly to help
the student body with the problems related to school.
Today, however, its purpose has changed. For in-
stance in 1957 STUCO determined that the football
players should pick the Homecoming royalty, where-
as today it is the whole student body who chooses.
ln 1920 the student council was responsible for
enforcing rules. ln 1984 and 1985 the student
council's purpose was to help communication be-
tween students and administration.
The first STUCO was organized in 1919. lt consisted of a group of 22 people, 12 boy.
and 10 girls.

Seniors sum it up
Each graduating class has special memories that will be cher-
ished for a long time. lVlost memories will be good, but there will
also be bad memories. Some events the class as a whole will
remember, such as B-row and senior alley, the football season of
the senior year, and the Kapaun game lwhich we all wish we
Who can forget getting up at the crack of dawn just to take a
four hour ACT test? And everyone who had lVlr. Andrews as a
junior will surely remember his Class.
Each individual has special memories. "l'm going to remember
taking Amanda Carper's place in the marching band at the Home-
coming game," commented Vicki Smith.
lVlary Schill remembers when she was a freshman. Her friend got
in trouble in the lunch room for popping a milk carton.
Jeff Breon said he will remember lVlr. Akin'sVbiology class and
sports, especially the Kapaun game.
According to Amanda Carper one of the things she'll remember
most is getting minuses in chemistry and physics.
IVlarie Baugh said that she'll remember going to state in golf.
And her freshman year when she and her friends got together
and their parents told them not to invite boys over and not to
take the car,- and they did both.
Maybe the best memory will be class friendships. Through-
out the four years in high school, and maybe even longer, many
strong bonds were created that promise to last a long time.

During the past century many families have

however, have stayed in Newton, and their de-
scendents chose to stay close to home. Because
of this several students who graduated in 1985

A chan ge for foreign students
For most students, the senior year is spent participating in many activities with close
friends. Some students, hovvever, choose to spend their senior year differently. They
travel thousands of miles from home to go to school.
NHS continues to send students for foreign study as vvell as having exchange stud'
ents attend school here, This year four exchange students vvere in our student body.
Stephanie Frank vvas from Krefeld in Nordrhein Westfalen iVVest Germanyl.

in coming to America through a friend vvho had been an exchange student.
Gerald Hahn vvas from Springe which is near Hannover in Niedersachsen iVVest
Germanyl. He enjoys photography. Gerald QOI involved in the exchange program

ln the beginning years of NHS, it depended on the
individual senior class as to what they would like to do
for an end-offthe-year fling. Some classes had field
days and others dress-up days. Many classes decided
on a Junior-Senior Reception. This included the juniors
entertaining the seniors with reciting, singing, and skits.
A formal dance, or prom, was not allowed until later
The reception changed to a prom in the tate i950's.
The juniors were usually in charge of the entertainment
for all end-of-the-year events. The Junior-Senior Prom
was no different. The juniors were responsible for
raising money, thinking of a theme, and decorating.
Prom is a sneclai night for every girl and her date. At the

Wo rle Or Play?
Some students have jobs that reflect their
interests and hobbies. Chris Cooper is one of
these students. Chris referees basketball games
at the Recreation Center. His sister Carol started
playing basketball when she was younger and
through this he got interested in refing basket-
ball games. When Chris first started watching
his sister play, he said he thought that the refs
ran the game and he wanted to do thatg he
wanted that power.
Chris started running the time clock for intra-
mural games. He then started running the time
clock for freshman girls games. This exposure
increased his enjoyment of basketball and
desire to ref.
Chris has been refing basketball games at the
Rec Center for two years. Chris received advice
from teachers Bud' Akin and Larry Barnhart,
who are high school referees. They suggested
that he send letters to other towns to investigate
refing for junior high games. Chris would then
like to move up to high school. His goal is to
ref college games.

Freshmen Get Initiated
Every August Newton hosts the Harvey
County Fair. Some of the entertainment
one can find at the Fair are the rides,
exhibits, a rodeo, tractor pull and the
freshman initiations. The initiations are
not part of the fair schedule and the
police try to prevent them, but, neverthe-
less, freshman initiation has been around
for such a long time no one really knows
when it started.
Upperclassmen have traditionally in-
itiated the freshmen. Some of the dirty
deeds done to the freshmen were putting
eggs and shaving cream on a victim. lf

All the upperclassmen seem to pick on the

Another difficulty the freshmen run into
is that they are not old enough to drive.
They are old enough to do a lot of extra

The rock group, Van Halen, toured through Wichita ln June. The concert sold out in three days. Pictured
above, guitarist Eddie Van Halen and lead singer David Lee Roth entertain the crowd. Fans held their
breath when David Lee Roth released a solo album "Crazy From The Heat" In December, fearing Van
Halen was splitting up. There was nothing to worry about, though, the album was just for fun.

Rock and Roll music has become increasingly popular with high school students. Many
popular rock groups could be found touring through the Kansas Coliseum this past year.
Some of these groups include: Van Halen, Motley Crue, Billy Squire, Molly Hatchett,
Sammy Hagar, Krokus, Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, Deep Purple, The Firm, Hall and Oates,
Brian Adams, and Autograph.
These concerts were attended by many high school students. Students often have to
sacrifice big bucks to attend these concerts because the price of tickets and the cost of
T-shirts could easily total well over 350. People found that the money was well spent
because the concerts were dazzled with light shows and hours of their favorite songs.
The Kansas Coliseum was not the only place where people could go for music enter-
tainment. Just in Wichita, Century ll, Henry Levitt Arena, and the Cotillian Ballroom
also hosted many music celebrities. During the W.A.S.P. concert, lead singer Blackie
Lawless surprised the fans by drinking animal blood, spitting it on them, and then

During the school year there were many things that occurred that left lasting impressions
.an students. To many, such things as football games, dances or graduation will be remem-
bered from their school year. While all these memories were being made with the average
teenager, national events were taking place that will go down in the history books as events
that occurred in 1984 and 1985.
During the summer, Americans became patriotic and supported the United States athletes
in the Olympics. Sixteen-year-old Mary Lou Retton captured the nation's heart with her
childish grin and her gold-medal performances. Carl Lewis, trackster, and Greg Luganis, diver
also had American beaming with pride. People will always question whether Mary Decker
was pushed by Zola Budd in the 10,000-meter run or whether the collision was an accident.
Another big newsfmaker in 1984 was the Presidential Election. Ronald Reagan had a
landslide victory over Walter Mondale who only claimed his home state of Minnesota and the
District of Columbia for electorial votes. Many people feltghe Democrats did have a victory
with the nomination of Geraldine Ferraro for 'vice president.
Trivia became a new fad in 1984-85 with the game Tivial Pursuit leading the sales. There
was different trivia which occured this past year. The T.V. special "The Burning Bed"
brought attention to abuse and the topic was widely researched, especially the hidden secret
of sexual child abuse. The movie "Ghostbusters" broke attendance records at the theaters.
George Orwell's book "1984" which predicted the year to be run by computers gave every-
one a laugh because the book was proved to be untrue. "The Wave" was a new thing spirited
crowds got into at sporting events. The Statue of Liberty was in the process of being
repaired. The liquor age was in the process of being raised to 21 nationally. Yuppies iyoung
upwardly mobile professionalsl claimed 1984 as their year: T
' Famous people made headlines in 1984-85. Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal had a baby
girl. Miss America, Vanessa Williams, was stripped of her crown after it was brought to the
attention of the public of her stripping for the magazine Penthouse. John DeLorean was
acquitted from his cocaine charge. Singer Bruce Springsteen came back into the limelight
with his album "Born in the U.S.A."
ln 1984-85 there were tragedies as well as victories. The Bhopal lndustry in india had a
gas leak that killed thousands of people. Ethiopia was found to be a nation starving to
death. Baby Fae, the first person with a heart transplant from a baboon died 20 days after

Railer 100. These two simple words came to life and changed the who
course of the 1984-85 school year. Only two days into the school year, tl
Centennial officially began with raising of the Railer 100 flag and a ribbc
cutting for the Grand Opening ceremony.
Some people may not realize that the Centennial year was not planni'
overnight. But plans were made for and included not only the high school a
ministration in the planning and organization but volunteers from the col
munity as well. The Railer 100 was not just a high school event but a col
munity one as well.
Graduation lVlay 22 ended the seniors' high school years but the fun w
just beginning. Monday June 10 marked the beginning of Railer 100 wel
with the Roundhouse Rendezvous at the high school which served as t
headquarters for the Railer 100 week. The historical society got into the a
putting up a special display commemorating the high school. The Warkenti
House also prepared for visitors on Monday and Tuesday.
On Wednesday the Centennial Follies, a Railer 100 review, took place at t
Roundhouse Rendezvous theater. Earlier that day, there was a swim meet
the Roundhouse Rendezvous pool.
Thursday featured the Nlain Street Bar-b-que with a western, polka, a1
square dance after that. A women's golf tournament took place at the Ne
ton Country Club. A tennis tournament was also played on the Bethel Colle
tennis courts. Tours were also offered of the new high school and old Broz
way high school on Thursday.
On Friday the tennis and golf tournaments continued as the racquetball a
horseshoe contests were just getting underway. There was also a big ba
dance in the Roundhouse Rendezvous Dance Hall which followed the prese
and past teachers and administrators reception at the Roundhouse Rend
vous media center.
High school tours and the final performance of the Centennial Follies to
place on Saturday. The racquetball tournament was concluded just as the F'
Run from the new high school to the old one got underway. An all sports
union took place at Lindley Hall along with a basketball shoot. The Sa
Creek Art Festival also got underway Saturday. A music reunion and a ai
vity mini-reunion were also scheduled Saturday at the Roundhouse Rend
vous. The day was capped off with a Night Life Sounds dance at the dai
Sunday June 16 capped off Railer 100 Week with a picnic in the park alt
with a birthday party and ice cream social at Athletic Park.
Over 61 reunions were also scheduled which made June a busy month
Since the bi-centennial is only 100 years away this Railer 100 week crea
enough new and old memories to last until the next birthday party in 2085
