'li' XJ MW arf ffl S 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 v-Y ,r ff if X,-.gt A sr.

During the times it was NHS it was added on to four times. Tilt augllt 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 IHS- C1974-19851 he present NHS building where the 100tl'1 birthday Will be Celebrated. llll BELTS 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 of 1926. 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. .L 752 nwtf Cfss M" Seniors Cami Ford and Matt Washburn investigated the Senior Announcements ordering. ,fn SGTUOI' David LGBTUEG get his head Siled for his QYBGUBUOTI CBD.

CGD MGT 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 peopIe." Some people took a different approach. Karla Ford said she was very proud. 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 yet." 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 many privileges."

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 channel lVlTV. People were entertained by TV music videos, TV video games, and home Video Cas- sette Recorders which came with the electronic and computer era. Summmn aumtpointg 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.

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. .- wus ONE nv ISSETH Newton finally got a McDonald's which students found to be a good place to go ani eat or to meet friends.

They waited patiently in front of a bank of candles to find who would be named Homecoming king and queen. 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. interuf.SZwrt5 Week: Winter Sports Royal Court- Jay Franz, Sandee Buller, King Larry Thompson, Queen Kay Gerlng. Matt Washburn and Jennifer Reid. X ii i 0 Gut 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. szalteg, frames?

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. S 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.

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 ldlng block 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.

W'-v 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. lvl-E-D-I-A C-EQNQT-E-R 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 material. 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 usage. 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. ...NN ...,....,,,K The library is a good place to relax.

With a record of six wins and six loses, Craig Sul- Forensic coach, feels that the team a young squad and new coach, the livan, had a good season. "When I first came I didn't know what to expect. I was very pleased with the growth the squad demon- strated. The kids worked hard and we had some success, this year was a growing year and I think we'll be stronger next year," said Sullivan. This year's topic for the debate team was to resolve a way for the federal government to provide employment for all unemployed U.S. citizens living in poverty. The highpoint of the season was the Hesston Tournament where Amy Downey and Kathleen Hays took first in the varsity division. Cheryl Gaeddert and Mike Turner took third place in the sweepstakes division which was the best school performance. ln this tournament, 20 schools participated, with the winning schools going against other winning schools. Nlost ofthe Wichita schools as well as Harvey County schools were in the finals. At regionals, Newton went up against Great Bend, Garden City, Salina South, Lyons, Parsons, Hays High and McPherson who defeated them in the end and went on to state competition. But overall Sullivan was pleased with the season. "The kids are intelligent, well-bred people with lots of ideas," said Sullivan.

S-T-U-C-O Stuconotjust an adventure deco ' atef Duties of STUCO President senior Steve Raber were attending school board meetings and reading announcements everyday in school. STUCO is not just an adventure, it is a job. Nlost people think student council is all piz- 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 NHS." 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 stickers. people, at Christmas.

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 ' . eing 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 P 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.

T 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 Lane. 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 rr 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."' ss MQ S Xsflwi Lili.

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 programming. 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.

Whether students took science to get the needed credit, because they wanted a related career or just because they liked the class, science attracted many students.

"l wanted to learn how to type my reports and not use two fingers," said freshman Christy Siemens.

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 to nationals. 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."

O fov Of NA W ,, homewfsov home eirowsky spfak 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 Economics. 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 school. it Mrs. Akin, sponsor and Glynis Wonders, member, Ann Mofrls stlrs the potatoes Tor the pota rnake cinnamon rolls to sell at break for YAC. Nlrs.

Occupational training 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 compete. Auto Mechanics Club sponsored a car 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 judging livestock. Both Vocational Agriculture and Auto Mechanics are classes where students can see and try opportunities in a career. .N-M v.o-C-b'T"O Students 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." e. 'TZ' kYX'55ts . 167: . a Ca' .

"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.

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 them," said Stacie Lloyd, junior. After Railaire tryouts the members tell new initiates, "We're gonna get ya!"

V-O-C-A-LXO-R C l-l T Group plays for musical Every other year orchestra students per- form in the school musical. This year the or- chestra performed in the play, "South Pacific." Also the orchestra trades going to tri-state festival in Oklahoma one year with going to competition in Kansas City, at Worlds of Fun. This year they went to Worlds of Fun. Along with tri-state festival, the Orchestra also attends other festivals including regional and state, and performs in at least four con- certs throughout the year. All of this work paid for the several stu- dents who auditioned and made the state district six honor orchestra. Some of the students also joined the Wichita Youth Symphony. This year the orchestra also had an active quartet which started last year these students attended summer camp.

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 60s. "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 Woolery. 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."

Law 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 students. "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." j X A A is fi an . g , F E s - f Mandi Q f R -'-- D8I'ICiI"lg their life EWay in 3el'0biCS 376 jLll'1lOl'S, Sherry KO9hl'1 and CBYWIGD Wyl'Ufi"l.

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."

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 through pictures or through moves on a chess board. Etures.

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 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 for games. 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.

F-E-A-T-U-R-E 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 shed." 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 Smith. r11l11l1I11111111I1111Z1Tl1111111111111111lT1l11lf11lY: I I g oocuMENrs g I I I I I Zimmefdale Tgiefsram I I I : .

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 game." 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 the money 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 up. u Juniors Kelly Clark, and Sherry Koehn proudly wear the T-shirts they helped create. The Kapaun- Buster shirt was the leading money maker for the school year. mei ....-Q xt .

Clubs: - hen one thinks of clubs, DECA, HERO, Pep club, Railerettes, f' and N-club might come to '- mind. But for students who were a part of out-of-school athletic clubs, names like Nads, Geeks, Scrub Club, Rats, Camels and The Railer School of Pain were more familiar. These clubs did not meet every second and fourth Tuesday, but rather plan their acti- vities out of school. lVlost clubs even de- signed their own logos and print up T-shirts for all the members, like the Nads, Rats, Camel and Scrub Club have done. "Our T-shirts represent what it means to be a scrub," said Vicki Smith, senior scrub member. "We mixed colors like, psych- edelic orange, blue and yellow to produce a putrid 'scrub' effect. Since the scrubs in volleyball uniforms weren't gaining atten- tion, we decided to make our own uni- forms." The roots of the Scrub Club can be traced back to J.V. volleyball for seniors Lori Brown, Smith, Cami Ford, and Sharon Regier. "Scrub Club originated last year when four of us juniors sat on the bench for varsity games," said Brown. "Although we all played J.V., we had fun and only lost a few wisr matches. Having the Scrub Club was a re- lease from the disappointment of not play- ing varsity." A more well known club, the Nads, began two years ago when former seniors Sam Fayette and Ty Garver were organizing a Recreation center basketball team. This year's S9V1iOfS, Rob Watkins, Keith Herring, Brett Shirk, Steve Roberson, Steve Raber, Kenny Cherryholmes and Tim Stauffer carried on the tradition. "lVlost of the members are the offensive linemen," said Watkins. "The Nads consist of the '84-'85 classes and after us, there will be no more Nads." Not just anyone can be a Camel, Rat or Scrub. So what does it take to be a Nad? "First there is a selection process," said Watkins. "The Nads pick, and then there is initiation. lf they pass initiation, they are a Nad." The Camels represented the J.V. linemen, the Rats were the defensive backs, Scrubs represented insignificance, Geeks were the cross-country runners and the Railer School of Pain of the girls basketball team taught basic fouling techniques. What did the Nads represent? I "We represent aggressivenessf' said Watkins, "You can apply it to anything." r , ,gh . at some v Lf .N CWB J-st .M - " X ! X ' ifsf its s M tx.

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 school. "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 from Newton. "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." I I I Fwfbtll oorb llC pr Res VL reat", is how head Football 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 again. 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." 5 3 -S 2 ' s E Varsity Football -ffrontj Tria Machmer, Shelley Schmidt, Tom Penner, Dan Lewis, Russell Humphries, Gilbert Gonzalez, Abby Keyes, Cim Smith, lsecondi Brad Heine, Mike Plummer, Scooter Powers, Mark Akin, Gil Solis, Mike Merritt, Stan Ybarra, Tim Stauffer, Kris Wondra, Mark Fayette, Vernon Wonders, Qthirdj Aaron Kern, Matt Smith, Carl Burns, Bryce Buller, Miles 82!Football Harvey, Jerry Ainsworth, Albert Johnson, UHYIS Krell, Alex Martinez, Darrin Dragoo, Randy Mathews, Jeremy Hammett, ffourthj Grant Horst, Warren Koehn, Paul Tafolla, Jim Schreiber, Greg Harms, Kenny Cherryholmes, Rob Watkins, Craig Sangals, Pat Wyss, Todd Langenhorst, Carlos Gonzalez, Steve Roberson, Ron l.ackey,,PauI Solis. qfifthj Tony Johns, Todd' Sturgeon, Jeff Breon, if E S S Troy Girrens, Derek Madsen, hd Wonders, L Benninghoff, Jay Franz, Chrls Zuercher, Jim Gomez, Steve Bacon, Brad Sneed, Steve Rat Brett Shirk, Keith Herring fbackj Coach Ro Erickson, Coach Marvin Estes, Coach Ron Go Coach Larry Barnhardt, Coach Randy To Coach Bud Akin, Coach Rick Whitfield .

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 another factor. inexperience was not limited to just the team. It was the first year coaching j.v.

Akin and 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 behind fundamentally." But the team managed to pull together toward the end of the schedule and salvage the season. "Our game against Buhler was the first game we pulled together. When we started having team unity, we started winning our games," said Swartzendruber.

One week would be stormy and the next week would be all clear. For head Coach Janice 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 "successful" is when one evaluates the Railers 12-16 overall record. For Wilkey, the season was not without certain high- lights. "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 Derby in the AVL." 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 the Railers ran into in tournament play, where the squad accumulated most of its losses. 86!VoIIeybaII 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 it." Deserving it does not always guarantee a state bid. Despite being practically injury free this season, the Railers could not over power much improved Buhler team at sub- 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." The varsity was not the only team to have its ups and downs as the junior varsity finished with a record of 4-9. The freshman A team finished with a 3-3 record and the B team ended up with a 0-4 record. "I like serving more this year because I think l'v improved.

Joanne Thaw, head gymnastics Coach, saw her young inexperienced gym- nasts of last yar mature into tough com- peting atheletes. Maybe 1984 was not the squad's vintage year but a lot of refinement took place. Hampered by injuries and lack of seniors, the squad had a tough time competing against healthy, more experienced teams. "The only problem we had were injuries that held back some individuals as well as the team for awhile, but they finished the season with strong performances," said Thaw. One gymnast who ended the season with a strong performance was junior Stafanie Krehbiel. At regionals, she made it to the beam finals but failed to qualify for state. "We all thought she would make it to state," said Laura Capel, sophomore. "l'm sure she will next year." Capel remembered many individual and team highlights. "I got my first letter," said Refi E E T the sophomore who has been interested gymnastics since the second grade. "Ti team also got second in AVL." Thaw had a chance to experience sor team accomplishments. "The highlight of the season for me w seeing three scores on beam in the seve lat Wichita Southi, seeing Stefanie rear 88.75 on vault, and not leaving practi without having someone do something ne so many conscutive nights." Without any senior leadership, the unde classmen took it into their ownghands, "Stefanie and Denise lllllurphy, soph morel did a great job leading the team as a around performers did as well." 1 The Railer label next year should rez "Serve at room temperature.

The accomplishments of the boys and girls cross-country teams are almost mirror re flections of each other. Each team had six returning lettermen. Each squad finished e disappointing second place in the Ark Valley and third in regionals. Even their overall records were similar, with the guys ending up 72-11 and the girls 72-13. The big difference came at state where the boys placed fourth and the girls sixth. This might seem like quite an accom- plishment considering that neither team was seeded, but Capps was not surprised with the results. "lt was no surpriseg we were confident. We ran good races in both the guys and girls competitions. Hays and Nliege were both seeded ahead of us in the guys competitions, while the Hays girls were seeded ahead of us. We just ran better than they did at this meet." Not only the experienced runners came through for Capps, but some of the younger runners did their share. "We had exceptional season in both the girls and guys competitions," said Capps. "Our young athletes really helped us a bunchg we were pleasantly pleased." Three freshmen were responsible for Capps' being so happy. Roman Vega, Todd Stineman and Troy Williams were described by Capps as being "good surprises." The gms were not without some good surprises alsr. One might think placing at state, especially unseeded, would be a highlight although for Capps, cross-country is more than just winning medals. "We won seven trophies and plaques during the season, but the highlights of the season are seeing our athletes improve their abilities and develop a sense of pride for themselves and our school." Not only the varsity teams enjoyed good seasons. The boys J.V. finished with a 10-1 record, the J.V. girls 17-1 and ,the freshmen 48-2, 9O!Cross-Country "I started runnlng ln the fifth grade.

Roni Gonzalez, senior, was the squad's only returning state veteran but was unable to make a repeat performance due to the tough competition.

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."

It's the Eye of the Tiger, of the fight rising up to the challenge of our rivaIs."-Survivor it's the thrill lf this year's girls basketball season were to be made into a movie, it would surely be billed as "Rocky lV." Just as street tough Rocky Balboa made his bid for the heavy- weight title against champion Apollo Creed, the Railer girls made a bid for the state tour- nament against Buhler in the sub-state tour- nament. Both were defeated but still came out winners. "lf effort were the measure of winning," said Coach Bob Grader, "we would be un- defeated." But the undefeated AVL record belonged to the Derby girls for the second year in a row. The Railer girls finished in fourth place in the league with a record of 7-7 and 12-10 overall, with McPherson and Winfield placing second and third respectively. This record can be deceiving considering that 5 of the 10 losses came from teams that competed in the state tournament. But an ironic tidbit was that the Railers beat the 6A girls state champion Hutchinson High on three occa- sions but failed to go the 5A state. "Ten losses looks like a large number, but most of the games could have gone either 102!Girls basketball "We really played good our last two games, but we came up on the short end of the stick," said Kelly Clark, junlor, about the team's loss to Buhler In the flnals of the sub-state tournament. iq clneims way," said Graber. "We had a tough sche- dule, our record doesn't reflect how well the team played." Due to lack of height and having only two seniors on the squad, the girls had to put to- gether four intense quarters in order to win. "A small team has to stay intense every game in order to win, but it's hard to keep that up the whole year," said Graber. That intensity did not elude the Railers at the end of the year when they took on fifth ranked 5A McPherson Bullpups in the first round of sub-state play. The girls played with "The Eye of the Tiger" and pulled off a 16-point upset defeating Mac 65-49. "That was the best game we played as a team," said second-year Coach Graber. "The win over Mac was an emotional high. One of the biggest wins since I have been coaching." Buhler was the only thing standing bet- ween the Railers and a state bid. It was a hard, tough battle right down to the last few minutes of the game, but the Crusaders came up on top 60-55. "We got tired the last five minutes of the game," said Graber. "We had to slow the ball down and didn't attack the basket as we us- ually do. We got out of our style of ball." That game may have ended the season for the Railer girls, but the saga will continue.

MLN-swsssww .V. M luis Adjust E TS 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. l04!Girls basketball "l had to adjust playing with different people," said Bradbury, "I didn't know their moves." One coach who has not had to change his 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 achieved it. "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. mm.. ..,. . ---t - s.,.t..aupw N.,.W.t., es.s,..s,swt:-- "I feel like we worked well together beca most of us have been together on seventh a eighth grade All-Star teams," said Kerri Port sophomore.

Girls BasketbaIlf105 ER omi q obsmcles I 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. 1Topj "Placing eighth in our Newton Invitational was a highlight," said Ed Fayette, junior. 1Rightj "Being named the outstanding wrestler of the Garden City tournament was a highlight this year," said senior Larry Thompson who also finished second in the state tournament. 106!Wrestling A new twist has been added to the state tournament.

"But the Coliseum didn't bother us. We placed as high as we could and wrestled as well as we could." 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, " said Thaw. "By losing these two people we lost quite a bit of leadership and both were state contenders." lt seemed as if anyone on the team could have been a state contenders considering that 18 of Thaw's 22 wrestlers got varsity time on the mat. "Our .l.V. team was unique. bECauSe seldom did any of our wrestlers wrestle on J.V." said Thaw. "Most of them wrestled half varsity and half J.V." WnesrllNq ! ,.,,.. - . Ni T an-........ .

Due to terri y good weather the first game of the season was not rained out. Someone must have planned the softball schedule by the Farmer's Almanac because the Ballers played six straight games without a rainout. "l'm really surprised we haven't had a game rain' ' yet," said senior Stephanie Gasaway. ine weather has been really nice and we haven't had many indoor practices which gives us more on-the-field experience." Out of the six games the Flailers lost only one game splitting with Wichita North. Coach Roger Erickson listed North, Bishop Carroll, Wichita Northwest and Ark City as some of the toughest competition for the Ballers. The squad los' lost two seniors last year and had five seniors returning to the starting lineup. They were Janelle Gaddert,first baseg Roni Gonzalez, pitcher and third base, Gas- away, second base, Diane Brooks, right field, and vicki Smith in left field. Rounding out the rest of the varsity line- .lTopl "I like Dlaylng catcher because you always are moving around and in the action," said Sherry Koehn. lRightl "Pitching is the hardest part of softball because you control the game," said senior Roni Gonzales. 1l0!Softball up were juniors Sherry Koehn, catcher and center fieldg Kelly Clark, shortstop and third base, Becky Seibel catcher, Sonya Svaty, right field, and Elyse Funk, pitcher and shortstop. All this experience has made the team fairly solid at each position on the field. "We have good defense, potentially good hitting, good pitchingl not outstanding, but very good.l said Erickson."We won't get many strikeouts, so we will have to field well." The squad had to do more than field well this season, especially in regional play, with a possibility of Newton, North, Northwest and Carroll fighting for a state bid.Erickson's outlook on the season is a good one. "We can go as far and do as well as the girls want to. It is my responsibility as a coach to see my team is the best team it can be. And we will! But we have a way to go." So as long as the weather holds out, the last part of the season should just be as good as the first. "Batting is a challenge because it takes a lot of con centration to make everything click," said junior Becky Seibel. v 3 l K .iff . -- .

He said, "Our seniors are do- ing a great job of leading and we are-hopeful this will pay off by the end of the season." This being Estes' first year of coaching track at NHS, many changes were made. One of the biggest changes is in philosophy towards the long range goals so effects may not be immediately seen.

Out- breaks usually occur at the end of the sea- son, but the latest medical reports show that it is a virus that lies dormant throughout the year and does not take full effect until about a week before sub-state. Sweaty hands and nervous twitches are the first signs of state fever. individuals have known to be cured only through competing in the state tour- nament and doing their best. That is exactly 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. The boys and girls cross-country teams were not weak by any standards. It was the girl's eighth straight trip to the state meet and the boys' fifth. The girls placed sixth and the boys nailed down the fourth place spot.

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 the rest.

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." 5 if ,.. s - A A ii ..- g M We ' "' da if sf' Steve Williams and Gary Sneed members of the School Board test The school lunch.

W 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. P' Eg. ,F M-A , ,, V f fi?

Each class used to have class colors, then urple and gold were chosen for school olors. Sometime after 1928 the school olors changed to black and gold. ln 1903 telephones were added to the :hool and a truant officer was appointed. ln 1904 Samuel Greenbaum graduated 'om Newton High School. He established rchitect firm in Kansas City, and in 1914 he ras the building architect for the Railroad 'id Loan Building. In 1905 NHS was awarded a silver medal Pr a school display at the Louisiana Pur- wase Exposition in St. Louis, MO. This was we second such medal awarded to a school. ln 1913 the first PTA was formed. The boy's basketball team took state for ie first time in 1916. ln 1919-1920 the first student council was formed. ln 1925 Jessie L. Dickinson was probably the first black to graduate from NHS. While in Newton he sang with the High School Glee Club and attended Bethel College. Dickinson was in the House of Representa- tives in lndiana for six terms and the State Senate in lndiana for two terms. He has a middle school and a high school named for him in South Bend, lnd. ln 1913 Robert Rayburn graduated from NHS Rayburn won first in National Orator- ical Contest in Washington, D.C He was president of Wheaton College. ln 1932 Willard Goheen graduated. He was a Federal Judge for antitrust laws. Barbara Claassen Smucker, author of children's books, graduated in 1932. Tom Walker, Kansas Representative, and Alf Shrader, Chief Justice of Kansas, grad- uated NHS in 1933. ln 1938 Ernie Unruh graduated from NHS. Ernie was a Kansas Representative for 20 years. ln 1949 "The Newtonian" won an All American Rating. Railerettes, the girl's letter club, was or- ganized in 1970. The girls could letter in basketball, gymnastics, tennis, and track. The first annual Sadie Hawkins Dance was in 1971. The class of 1973 was the last to graduate in the old high school on West Broadway. 1973 brought the first woman admin- istrator. The 1975 yearbook was the first in NHS history with color pictures. The class of 1977 was the first class go attend all four years in the new school building, 1978 was the first year a king was crowned for Homecoming. ln 1981 Chris Anderson and "The Danger Boys" produced two movies, "A Tressle Too Close," and "ApocaIyspe Wow." ln 1984 Air Bands were first introduced.

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 could forgetl. 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. .- ..A.. .

Some families, however, have stayed in Newton, and their de- scendents chose to stay close to home. Because of this several students who graduated in 1985 are the third and fourth generation to graduate from NHS. This brought about some inter- esting family and school histories.

One big disadvantage is winter. llkswagons have a hard time starting en it is cold and you have to scrape i inside and outside of the windshield, :ause the heaters and defrosters don't lrk very well.

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 years. ' 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 Junior-Senior Prom, of 1972, Vicki Helfer and her date Chuck Merritt pause to admire a table decoration.

Curfew Lifted When you think of the word curfew. Usually you thinl- of a time that your parents set for you to be home. Bu from February 6, 1961 until it was lifted on Novembe 3, 1982, the entire town of Newton had a curfew, whicl was 11 p.m. on weeknights and midnight on weekends. The curfew resulted from fueds with other towns, speci fically one town was Hutch. Hutchinson High Schoo was Newton's number one rival at that time. "The figh were near riots, they got out of hand to be almost u controllable," said Jay Newton, city manager. Some stt dents were hospitalized because of this. Action needei to be taken, so city officials did take action which be came the "curfew". They feel this improved the behavio and calmed the riots down. When the time nears for everybody to go home you feel you have to take that last main before your curfew.

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.

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 the freshmen fight they wouid get thrown over the bridge into Sand Creek. In the past few years the upperclassmen have eliminated the eggs and whipped cream and just tossed the freshmen in the water. If the upperclassmen missed the fall initiation, or got bored during the spring, they were known to raid the freshman locker section with such 'substancesl as vinegar, eggs, and water balloons. Stu- dents who got caught harassing the fresh- men received such punishments as sus- pension, detention or picking up the parking lot. 2 z Seniors Kenny Cherryholmes and Todd sturgeon lnltlate a freshman.

'oming to the high school for the first time often scary. lt is bigger, there are more ieople, the teachers are different, and there s always the fear of getting lost. All the upperclassmen seem to pick on the reshmen. This has almost become a habit. 'he freshmen are new, younger, and usually smallerg this makes it easy to get picked on. 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 things, but cannot drive to do them. Waiting for rides can many times be a hassle, as freshmen soon find out. Rachelle Bainum, Valynn Horn, Brlan Verscnelden, Steve Guhr and Eugene Cook find it tiresome waiting for the bus. Because they are not old enough to drive it ls easiest to ride the bus to and from school.

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. ll Wanna aa 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 Billy Squire ,hows "Signs of Life" as lie performs All Night Long at his concert at the Coliseum December 8. 187 Schlll, Dorothy 122 Schlll, Mary 81,126 Schirer, lvan 81, 126Schlrer, Joy 126 Schirer, Tony 117, 140 Schmldt, Aprll 165 Schmldt, Betty 122 Schmidt, Darrell 177 Schmldt, David 177 Schmldt, Jalane 25, 61, 165 Schmldt, Jill 60, 177 Schmldt, Karen 165 Schmldt, Karma 26, 60, 61, 165 Schmidt Lori 26, 58, 59, 71, 91, 117, 153 Schmldt, Melanle 165 Smith, Roger 68,166 vane, Valerie 29,111,179 Smith, Ron 166 Vanis, Virginia 25,127 h Smith, Sheri 149 VN935.

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 the operation.

Over 61 reunions were also scheduled which made June a busy month everyone.
