( SMALL P ICKAGES 1975 POLAR BEAR NORTH HIGH 501 HOLCOMB DES MOINES , IOWA 50313 STUDENT LIFE . 12 GROUPS ACADEMICS . 32 CLASSES SPORTS .54 ADS With a population of only 750 students, the process of holding together all the aspects of a school is more difficult. However, whenever people meet in work, despite their number, interaction is bound to occur. L ike any school, group activities existed, yet lack of participation plagued several of them. Girl ' s swim¬ ming, student council, and other groups faced the problems of running a program with less than an adequate number of members. Likewise, some classes, such as ROTC, neared the possibility of extinction in the future due to lack of in¬ terest by the student body. However, the smallness of classes led to more individual attention, and a closer knit relationship between students themselves as well as with the instructor. Even with a decreased student body, some groups did exceedingly well. North High football saw its best season in many years, with the team going to state; an event which produced as much spirit from our populace as it would from a larger school. Band, with close to one hundred members, per¬ formed as in years past, and received an invitation to Hawaii to participate in the King Kamehahmehah Day parade. With a smaller amount of members to work with, more effort was put out to achieve goals, and several clubs and teams were preserved through determination—true proof that good things DO come in small packages. _ 3 Each year brings with it new school and community events, and 1974-75 was no exception. From the very first, new things began to happen. Instead of counseling sessions to plan out schedules, registration was held in the gym and lunchroom. This procedure allowed students the chance to choose the class, hour, and teacher they wanted. At the end of September, the " Pep Board " of past years was revived, consisting of the presidents of several school clubs. The board planned spirit week. Later in the fall, the Polar Bear Band and Model United Nations members were given the honor of par¬ ticipating in President Ford ' s visit to the Iowa State Capitol building. The band alternated playing with other city high school bands and the UN delegates listened to his speech from select seats near the Presi¬ dent. Christmas time brought two new events, a Christ¬ mas dance and a Christmas musical. The dance, unlike Homecoming, was held in the student and lost money despite its enjoyment by the approximate crowd of sixty people who attended. The musical, " Babes in Toyland, " however, proved a success. Places in the school helped to make up daily life. Due to the fact that there were not enough students to fill both the balcony and most of the main floor in the auditorium, the " shelf " was closed down. Seniors and juniors missed the chance to look up and laugh at the sophomores on their faithful shelf during assemblies. Combining of lunch periods from four shifts to two made for the crowded conditions which exist at schools with larger enrollment. And due to wandering in and out by students, as well as litter, the student center was closed down dur¬ ing study halls. Vandalism caused the closing of a main hallway creating a distressing situation for those who respected its use. Obviously, the size of the student body had an effect on some places within the school, but concer¬ ning problems such as vandalism, we had as much trouble as schools larger than us. In a smaller group of students, people found more time to be themselves, to be individuals. For some, this meant achieving in the arts. For others, it was sports. And for still others, academics. There were also those interested only in getting enough credits to graduate, those who worked half days or those who had home study. Varied interests and beliefs were shown by in¬ dividuals. From Bible study members to Women ' s Lib shop class girls, everyone expressed a unique opinion, something all his own. With self-expression as a basis for the future, students faced their daily trials and joys with the idea of either planning for tomorrow —or waiting till it gets here. Whether it be studying in the library, practicing a musical instrument, shooting baskets, gyping class, or writing graffiti on a desk—each of us showed our in¬ dividuality. Just as small packages can contain big things , so can simply stated words represent much more than they seem to . For some , FINA was a home away from home , where they could get a quick smoke and escape school ' s pressure for a short time . The SMALL CHANGE sign in the lunchroom represented a hassle although seemingly insignificant. HIGHER PRICES , ONE NAPKIN ONLY , and NO STRAWS were changes which did not go unnoticed. A closed hallway meant tardiness for those who had to take a long detour to their locker. More impor¬ tant, however , it signified increased vandalism and disrespect for the school. An yet , there were also those students who held a deep and abiding love for the building and what it represented. WITHIN THESE WALLS LIES THE FUTURE . . . And though our number was smaller than years past , we touched that future with as much enthusiasm and importance. 0 0.0 0 ITEf dL a, i 10 ;8l- CIGAKET Student Life Being a student is more than a seven hour-a-day, five days-a-week grind. To the individual students, school meant many different things. There were those actively involved with academics alone. Devoting all their extra time to study, they looked upon school as a place to learn. For some, classes were joined with extracurricular activities. For them, this arrangement brought enjoyment and friendship as well as some trying times in judging priorities among activities and classwork. To certain people, classes and school in general seemed to be too much. They solved the problem by gypping class or eventually dropping out. For them, it was all too much work, hassles, and responsibility. There were those involved in work-study programs who coped with half a day of school and the other half of work at their job. The combination of the two lifestyles, of pupil and breadwinner, within the day provided these students with a chance to experience early how life would be upon gradua¬ tion. For everyone, the year meant something. 12 ' Now more than ever ' Powderpuff football girls engage in a game of touch football against the faculty. Julie Leisman and Donna Ebert seem starry eyed over Mick Cox on Junior Red , White, and Blue Day. relates to 1974 " Now more than Ever " proved to be a successful theme for North ' s homecoming activities, and for the year 1974-75 in general. Although there was little par¬ ticipation in the dress day activities, the stu¬ dent body showed it ' s spirit in different ways, such as a higher attendance at the dance, enthusiastic crowd at the pep assembly, and a large audience at the faculty-student football game. The game left us with a victory, and the week left us with many memories. This year ' s social committee was solely responsible for the successful dance, and the large car rally. Pep board a newly formed organization made the plans for spirit week and the activities that went on. Paul Kellogg and Jonetta Cameron served as chairpersons of the social committee. And Mr. Russ Odegaard sponsored pep board. Sophomore ' s came in, all inside out on Sophomore Inside-Out Day. 14 1 Varsity cheerleaders anxiously await the start of the car rally to Valley Stadium.

But the rain ceased and the activities went on as planned. Bobbi Warren was crowned the 1974 Homecoming Queen by two former Queens Becky Reese and Rosezita Watkins. The two princesses from each class also were presented by an AFJ ROTC escort and received a flower. Mr. Football John Goode was later announced at the dance Saturday. " Now More Than Ever " North was realizing that this was our year, this was 1974.

With the help of pep club and student council they manage not to go so far in the hole. " Crossroads " provide the music and the semi-formal dance was held in the student center. Although the attendance was low , the dance was well planned and could may of very well of been a success. Above: Ken Pryor poses with his date Lisa Johnson. Below: The few that did attend appear to be having a good time. Athletic triumphs create spirited students The 1974-75 year was nof just a year of athletic triumphs, but also struck a victory for spirit. With a winning football team, attendance at the games increased. Not only did assemblies grow but their quality improved. Most everyone participated in one way or another by making signs, join¬ ing a spirit group or simply cheering in the crowd. Spirit at its best both at the game and the assemblies. Signs helped spirit groups win points. Above: The spirit was booming at this pep assembly as shown by the team and coaches. Below: The anxious student body awaits the team. Pep Assemblies produce spirit Due to lack of consideration and poor conduct by the student body there were very few variety assemblies. However, this proved to be the opposite in regard to the pep assemblies. There was a great deal of spirit and effort brought forth by not only the organizers but also by the student body and faculty as a whole. Each was in some way unique, but all were alike in regards to spirit and involvement. Every week a spark plus award was presented to the various groups presenting the most spirit, the cadets formed a tunnel for the football players and the faculty put on some great skits. With our small enrollment the auditorium was far from full, but the spirit that was presented by those present proved that although we were small in number we were proud of what we had achieved.

The plays, unlike any others this year, were student directed. Don Guisinger, Ray Carver , and Paul Kellogg fell into the director ' s positions. This experience gave them the oppor¬ tunity to feel the pressure of the outcome of a play. " The Darkest Hour " was concerned with the grave conditions in our U.S. prisons , and a man ' s unjust murder conviction. " Trysting Place " in¬ volved multiple romances in a hotel lobby during the 1920 ' s. " The Sandbox " projected through a humorous view , the poor treatment of our senior citizens. " The Outcasts of Poker Flat " told the story of a group of people condemned as sinners by the town of Poker Flat , who en route to a new life , face the disaster of a blizzard together. Participation in these plays gave beginners a chance to star , as well as experiencing direction under one of their actors. Above: Randy Robertson and Joan Kalwishky in " The Outcasts of Poker Flat.

Dolphin Show Although Dolphin Club consisted of only thriteen girls, dedication and lots of after¬ school hours produced a show, as in past years. " Show of Shows " was the theme of the Dolphin show, which was held May 3. Unlike earlier shows, it was held for one night only, and later in the year. As usual, one girl was chosen Dolphin of the Year on the basis of experience, ability, and enthusiasm. Sondra Sechovec held the title for the team. Coaching again this year was Marilyn Quinn. ■— M 30 1 : 1 ' ' Decreased populace lends to individualism As North ' s enrollment reached it ' s overall lowest peak, we were forced to try and adjust to this handicap by using the people we had in as many ways as we could. Each individual was urg¬ ed to participate and take part in not just one ac¬ tivity but several. We were forced to spread ourselves thin and by participating less in one club, we had more time to add our support to another. Those who were interested worked not only to make up for the people we didn ' t have, but also for the ones who weren ' t interested. Classrooms were very seldom filled, the shelf went unused all year, some clubs went out of existence, and the teams relied on quality instead of quanti¬ ty. On the brighter side, it seemed impossible to get lost in the shuffle and very unlikely to go un¬ noticed. Every person had more of a chance to be an in¬ dividual and not just a face in a crowd. Left: Different forms of self-expression are the keys to in¬ dividualism. Academics Because of declined enrollment, classes became considerably smaller. There was more time for individual attention and development within the class. Lack of in¬ terest, however, caused classes such as ROTC to drift towards termination. Talks were held to discuss the possibility of boun¬ dary changes to aid desegregation efforts and to send more students to North. Despite low enrollment, there was more paperwork for the office than in past years due to the new atten¬ dance policy. As always, different students use their chances for academic achievement in various ways. There were studious to passive types of students all of whom made up classroom life. 33 mm Administration adopts new attendance policies Mr. Brownell helps Mr. Lawson with a problem. New attendance procedures were adopted this year to curb the alarming number of absences , truancies , and tardies that plagued our administrators last year. There were no absence slips , admits to class , no parent excuses , and no more multi-page absence lists typed up daily. Students were now responsible for atten¬ dance which gave them a maximum of twelve absences per semester or they would lose class credit . The sharp number of absences did decrease, however , there we re those who ignored the new system. Administrators were concerned about the education of each student and felt it necessary that they attend their classes. Mr. Graziano tells Kris Jurgens to stop horsing around. One of Mr. Brownell ' s duties—introducing guests. Mr. Lowell Perry concentrates on his paper work. Denise Luten takes time out from her filing for a smile. Mr. Frank Fair knows being an administrative assistant is hard work. Registrations frees counselors Mrs. Jean Hensley sorts through grade cards. Through open registration students were given the chance to plan their own schedules , choose their teachers and select the hour they wanted a class. This not only gave students the chance to pick classes and teachers that interested them the most , but to make them look ahead to their future after high school. Self-scheduling cut down on the number of complaints from students and gave counselors the time to arrange for college and vocational representatives to en¬ courage students to further their education after completing high school. 36 Ruth Eason, attendance clerk, works on student absence letters. New policies slackens load for office The new attendance policy did not affect only students, but also the secretarial staff. Attendance clerk Ruth Eason fought a cons¬ tant pile of parent letters for three and seven absence notifications. She also wrote up the longer letters sent out when students reached 12 absences, notifying the parents of a student ' s failure in class. The rest of the secretarial staff was kept busy with faculty and administration typing and secretarial demands. The office was continually full of students checking in and out, asking for change for their bills, requesting supplies, or waiting to see Mr. Brownell. Marge Overhol$er takes care of Mr. Brownell’s business. Rita Oline ignores cameras and concentrates on her typing. Efficient Beulah Fjelde can do more than one thing at a time. Mrs. Wanda Meffert, registrar, works on the school’s books. Janice Dusenberry has many duties as Mrs. Morison’s secretary. Mr. Tom Fitzgerald listens intently to a students question. Students surround Mr. Lozear for assignment directions. Students find Mr. John Phillips shows frustration over the nation s economy. A little peace helps Mr. Bob Lawson plan the next day ' s lesson. large choices for Social Science Credits J r ♦• { 1 ■ ; Teaching aids such as this overhead projector help get a point across. Mr. Bob Ligouri looks as frustrated as the little man in back of him. John Phillips listens to President Ford ' s speech on the State Capitol lawn. Everyone needs social science to graduate and there was a large variety of classes to fill the requirements. Psychology was a very popular course as students were interested in aspects of men¬ tal health , and personality study. The clasj doesn ' t require any knowledge of places and dates, breaking up the regima of typical history classes. There was also public issues, sociology , government and economics , to widen choices. Students had the opportunity of studying Black History. This is the attitude of most of Mr. Mel Wilson ' s history students. 39 _ Language Arts offers varied experience As there are many types of students in this school, each person has a different in¬ terest. Since English is a required credit for high school graduation, students used to find themselves sitting in a class that bored them. Now there are many types of classes to give you a credit and interest the student at the same time. American and English Lit, along with Drama, Contemporary Lit and Lit for today were offered. Students were also offered musical¬ acting experience in Music-Theater, writing experience in Journalism I, II and III, film experience in Film Arts and Journalism Graphics, and language experience in Ger¬ man and Spanish. Reading Lab offered students speed reading and vocabulary and comprehension skills training. Lower enrollment gave teachers more in¬ dividual time for students. Mrs. Lilian Hourigan discusses aspects of English Lit. Mr. Russ Odegaard prepares a flick for film arts. Mr. Graham takes time out from his German for a pic¬ ture. Mr. Mason uses his free period to plan Spanish lessons. 40 Mrs. Penny Kelly cheeses it for one of her journalism students. Mrs. Elaine Coyle helps a student understand what he is reading. Mr. John Thompson prepares the set for one of his dramatic productions. Mr. Ted Tuinstra pauses from his speech classes to man the lunchroom. Paul Kellogg browses through the card file with Mrs. Sellers. 41 ' X Olga Hansen pays close attention to Mr. Mortenson ' s instructions. Mr. Larry Hutzell gets ready to reveal the results of his experiement. Moth , Science lock students With few students enrolling in math and science courses , North had only two teachers for each course , as well as a part time calculus instructor. Mr. Dick Moberly, instructor from Har¬ ding , gave one hour each day to teach three eager calculus students. Mr. Brownell had charge of the class first semester. Mr. Knee and Mr. Mortenson share a load of classes from general math to trigonometry , giving the few students who were interested in math the chance to take the courses. Mr. Brindley an Mr. Hutzell were the only science instructors. Mr. Brindley had charge of biology and Mr. Hutzell had more advance courses like chemistry and physics. Students observe organisms as Mr. Brindley supervises. 42 Squadron Staff, L. to R.: Pat Quinn, Pam Corsbie, Jay Clark, Jerry Pollard, Mike Lasala, Willa Ries, Joan Stodgel, Betty Miller, Rick Walker, Steve Penny (Cadet Major Ray Leomazzi checks over the day ' s agenda. Debbie Fuller stands at attention during inspection. Full Cadet Squadron including students from Harding. Squadron Commander), Phil Tindrell, Jim Palmer, Debbie Schwartztrauber, Bill Lun- deen, Debbie Fuller, Mary Triplett, John Bidwell, Dave Rue. ROTC builds membership Once again this year AFJROTC was offered to students interested in aerospace or aeronautics careers. Although the prospect of ROTC being counted as a gym and science credit, made it more attractive, the program was threatened by a small enrollment. Major Leomazzi, chief advisor of the program, started a similar program at Har¬ ding Junior High last semester, in hopes of attracting more students next year. Students in the program went on several field trips such as the Science Center, Des Moines Airport, OFFUTT Air Force Base, and a visit to the Iowa Air National Guard. There were also several fund raising ac¬ tivities in which each student participated. Christmas candles were sold grossing $800.00. A raffle was also held. Exceptional cadets were honored as Cadets of the Week on the basis of leadership and classroom achievement. These students voted among themselves for the top honor of Cadet of the Month. Under the guidance of Major Ray Leomazzi and Sargeant Martin, these students were on their way to becoming strong, respectful individuals. 43 Band takes top rating; music has full year Michelle Fechner seems to be paying no attention to Miss Emmons. Each year North High School has been honored to have a great music department, and this year was no exception. Under the direction of Donna Emmons, Chorus, North Star Singers, Girls Glee, and Music Theatre, have received invitations from schools, clubs, and various other organizations. Several students participated in All State vocal music contest, in which three students made it and had the honor of performing with other students from all over the state. Mr. Killinger also had a full, but rewar¬ ding year. Marching band received a " 7 " rating in contest and an invitation to Hawaii. Mr. Killinger also had Jazz Band and Orchestra along with weekly lessons to students. Mr. John Thompson and Miss Donna Emmons know that the key to success is cooperation. Karl Killinger really gets into his music. 44 Mrs. Carolyn Druart gives her opinion on two of her students art work. Mr. Gerald Swanson helps Nancy Goode while another student awaits his help. Del Gilbert gives all his attention to his painting. Art—a way to express With classes smaller, students were given more of an opportunity to pick their own projects under the instructions of Mr. Swan¬ son and Mrs. Druart. One of the first projects in Mr. Swansons ' crafts class was a memory box or hutch. Other students painted, drew their own sketches , designed T-shirts or made rugs along with anything else they felt like mak¬ ing. Art students work on varied projects. 45 Home Ec starts own day care center; Adds coed class Setting up a sewing machine is old stuff for Miss Wilson. Guys and Gals Homemaking was a new addition to the home economics program this year. The guys took advantage of the oppor¬ tunity to learn a few things about cooking and taking care of themselves under the in¬ struction of Mrs. Laura Arnold. Home Ec also included foods, clothing and child development. The child development classes, under the direction of Miss Erma Wilson, managed a small day care center as well as visited day care centers in the neighborhood. The girls learned to understand every phase of child growth and development by experiencing child care. Little Allison Wright isn ' t too excited over her visit to the Home Ec room. Business Ed stress work With the growing competition in the business world, reliable office skills and ex¬ perience in office routine is essential. Mrs. Betty Jackson helped place girls in office positions in the Coop program. Mrs. Jackson also taught shorthand and typing to these girls. A Mss Mary Jane Blee instructed shorthand classes and consumer business, and Mrs. Mary Jo Morvak taught clerical practice (a variety of office skills). Miss Phyllis Phoenix worked students into their first typing class, along with Business Law a class dealing with business legalities. Students learned bookkeeping from Mr. William Funte, giving students a wide variety of business classes to fit their needs. Betty Rees keeps typing despite Mrs. Morvaks distraction. Mr. Treichler goes over DECA assignments (right). The new attendance system has Miss Blee up in arms with her attendance book, (below). Melia Trout takes dictation from Mrs. Jackson.

Drivers Ed gets new simulators There were few changes in the Drivers Education program although there was one major change. Workers tore out the old simulators that have been used for years , and put in brand new ones which were in use by November. Although North ' s enrollment dropped this year , the Drivers Education class remained at a large attendance giving Mr. Belding, Mr. Gray, Mr. Steward , and Mr. Sargent plenty of teaching responsibilities of teaching students the importance of safe driving technique.

Mechanical drawing students concentrate on their lines and squares. Industrial art builds skill With the demand for skill, experience in high school industrial arts classes was es¬ sential. Students were offered several types of industrial arts courses, auto mechanics, home remodeling, woodshop, metal shop and mechanical drawing. Students were given the opportunity to discuss projects and then put their skills to work. Home remodeling was a popular course, as it taught students to work together. The class had a great disappointment when their house caught fire setting a completion date back by several weeks. Mrs. Mary Helen Muell shares a friendly joke with a student.

There was also a co-ed type of gym where the boys joined the girls for volleyball games. During the first few months of school , the girls played soft ball and tried their hand at archery. As winter approached they tried tumbling and acrobatics. Boys spent the winter months playing basketball and volleyball as well as par¬ ticipating in body building programs.

Sports Varsity competition at the high school level is nearly always team-oriented. Seldom does an individual compete as an individual and not as a team member. For a squad to be successful, each partici¬ pant must exert himself or herself to the fullest. This is especially true when a high school ' s enrollment is 750 students—indeed a small package. However, as the old saying goes, good things have come from our small package. The most notable among them was a third place ranking in the state for our football team. A true indication of the importance of unity, especially at a small school. Each individual gave himself to the fullest, and produced a championship caliber team. Football was not the only activity North excelled in. Boy ' s basketball placed third in the metro, and Mark Morrow became the 1974 State Tennis Champ. Sometimes the playing really gets rough, as Kevin Thomas clutches the ball and the referee takes a tumble. Bruce Smith and Leon Townsell are determined to stop the opponent.

Season ends 8-7 Bears have their greatest season since 1937 L JU Togetherness cited as key to football success " To me this team was a part of my life , it took some dedication , desire , enthusiasm from the players and coaches. With this and team togetherness we had the greatest team I ' ve ever played on ' were the wise words spoken by John Goode. The Polar Bear football team finished runner-up in the metropolitan conference with an 8 and 1 record. This record was the best since 1937 , making it the greatest season in 37 years. The Polar Bears were led by head coach Alex Glann, offensive line Kent Babcock, offensive backfield Bob Peterson, defensive backfield John Ligouri, defensive line John McDonald. North ' s outstanding victories were against East with a 19-0 score and Roosevelt with a 20-0 victory. Eight Polar Bears represented North on All-City first team , five on All-City second team , and one honorable mention, North ' s leading scorer was Bill Woodyard with 61 points. Dave Hooper made this comment, " This season was one of the greatest experiences a person can have. We had a very successful season centered around togetherness and team unity. We had the right combination to make things come out the way we wanted it.” North qualified for the state playoffs by scoring a victory against Webster City with a score of 14-12. They then went on to be defeated by West Davenport who won the state title by edging Dowling 13-10. Bears offense is ready. Below: All-City members are kneeling Mark Ryner.

In their opening contest the cubs defeated Saydel 12-0. They then went on to beat Roosevelt 12-6. Throughout the remainder of the season the cubs united together showing true sportsmanship and pride in their school. The cubs finished their season 2 wins and 6 losses, but as Pat Rose comments it was well worth the time and effort. " Even though we ran into a little bit of bad luck this season with a 2-6 record " , Rose reported, " the team spirit still stayed very high However, the cubs gained valuable ex¬ perience and discipline for future varsity competition.

Play Offs delay practices; Finish third in Metro The 1974-75 Varsity Basketball team finished the season with a record of 10-8. The Bears placed third in the Metro Conference. Outstanding victories were against Dowling, with a 70-68 victory, and East with a 68-55 victory after losing the first time by one point. The team had three returning lettermen from last year, Bruce Smith, Kevin Thomas, and Bill Woodyard. Many basketball players were on the football team, causing a delay in basketball practices. However, Coach Helms made this com¬ ment, Football helped us in one way because our players started the season with a winning attitude which is important in a team. " North was fortunate to be represented b y Bruce Smith who placed on the All-City first team and by Bill Woodyard, Kevin Thomas, and Leon TownseU, who received honorable mention.

The Cubs finished the season with a total of seven victories against Mason City, Ankeny, Carroll Kemper, Tech twice, East, and highlighted by a 65-59 victory over Roosevelt. There were several close games making the season interesting, such as the Lincoln game with a score 73-71, and Valley game with a score of 52-48. With the final season record totaling seven wins and nine defeats the cubs have gained experience in sportsmanship and fundamentals that will serve profitable in varsity competition.

The rest of the tankers were composed of eight sophomores and seven freshmen. The year was a rebuilding one , having difficulties due to lack of participation.

Hindered with forfeited weights of 138 lbs. and 155 lbs. every meet, the teams victories were limited. However, individual wrestlers were consistent throughout the season. These people under the guidance of Ted Tuinstra are: Steve Moberg with a 12-8 season, leading in take downs with 20, near falls 22, reversals 20, and predicaments 13. Over-all leader was Marvin McCuller with 33 take downs and a season 14-8. Mike Hall finished 9-11, and Mike Ballard 10-10. Steve Moberg, senior, has the advantage over his opponent.

Boys ' 74 team champion spirit According to Coach Ken Whitney, the 1974 track team was the smallest one he has ever coached. Because of this small size, each member was forced to run several events in each meet. Although the season was winless, Coach Whitney felt that the enthusiasm and spirit were as high as on previous cham¬ pionship teams.

Janet Milton fought her way to the district singles title but was unfortunate¬ ly eliminated in the state tournament. The girls struggled , played their best, and put forth a great effort to tally vic¬ tories over Saydel, East, Tech , Indianola and Ankeny. With a lower enrollment the team was lacking participation by only having nine active tennis players playing in both doubles and singles.

Baseball Hard work, discipline and team effort were the prime attributes of the 1974 Junior Varsity Baseball team. The coaching was done by Kent Babcock. Long hours, much practice, lots of encouragement was Coach Babcocks major goals. Their season was not as great as Coach Babcock wished for. However, the season ended with a 6 win, 14 loss record. The six teams North beat were Roosevelt, Tech (twice), Ankeny and Urbandale. North had top players such as Del Gilbert who was known for his hitting. While Mark Walker and Dan Sharr were top pitchers. Varsity Coach Bob Ligouri commented, " The record does not indicate the hard work and ability of the players.

JMMM m- " ' “T.; Smm BJsM’s ai: } — Lack of good pitchers effects softball season Mr. Paul Oderkirk gave the North High Softball team a new look this season. Although there were many returning juniors and seniors, the team lacked depth. Miss Marilyn Quinn who is assistant coach felt the team had the potential but felt they needed more good , experienced pitchers. The girls themselves had a good time but felt more could be accomplished if there were more togetherness and team spirit. The girls ' came out with only five vic¬ tories and 12 losses. Two of the wins were against Tech and Valley (Sectional). This is the first time the girls ' softball team has ever won sectionals and gone to district. The great triumph of the season was when Julie Robinson made All-City Out¬ fielder. Nancy Neddermen held the highest batting average with .324.

For some groups , such as the band , enrollment remained high. In fact , our band was as large as most other high school bands in the city. Others , however , lacked membership. Debate team, for example , is expected to end this year because of few members. Despite the fact that it is going out however , the few determined participants yielded several trophies and honors for North . There seemed to be a big interest in jobs and released time. As a result much of the already sparse population was not around after school. Few had the time to be bothered with extra curricular activities. However , those who were concerned , who did get involved, and who did care , projected a great deal of school pride. Afro club keeps busy A haunted house was one of many ac¬ tivities which the Afro Club sponsored in hopes to raise money for a trip.

These included playing for President Ford when he visited Des Moines, presenting " A Salute to Karl King " concert, and receiving a 1 at state marching contest, along with marching at football games during the fall, and being in several parades in the spring. Playing at home basketball games and pep assemblies and performing in the an¬ nual North Spring Festival were among the band ' s other activities.

Selling finance buttons DECA to ads activities! By filling out an application and ap¬ proval by Mr. Treichler, North students , both boys and girls , had the opportunity to be part of the Distributive Education Program, which develops future leaders in marketing and distribution. This program met as regular classes — first hour for second year students and third hour for first year students. The students worked on group and individual instruction for two days each week , while Fridays were devoted to DECA , Distributive Education Clubs of America, chapter ac¬ tivities which is the leadership training part of the program. Fund raising activities such as making buttons , selling candy and signs , raffles and car bashes financed their leadership training competition. Selling yearbook ads was a new addition to these fund raising activities. Cindy Yazel, working at Younkers, gets on the job sales training.

Finance handles SAT; Inter city exchanges ideas Finance Committee was a sub-committee from Student Council which was in charge of SAT sales , taking identification pictures , and selling tickets for pancake day. Mr. Bob Lawson was the sponsor. Inter City Student Council consisted of five representatives from each high school. They met once a month at a different school each time. The purpose of Inter City was to exchange Student Council ideas and im¬ prove relations between the high schools. They planned an All-City dance, a bowling tournament and a ping pong tournament.

The committee met every Wednes¬ day after school in the student center to dis¬ cuss and decide upon changes in the school such as the reopening of the student center during study halls. Meeting Thursday mornings before school , the Forensics Club prepared for many tournaments. The members par¬ ticipated in tournaments around the state making several overnight trips. The debate team placed third in the district meet and fourth out of 25 teams at a Cedar Falls tournament.

Advertising covers Oracle costs; Polar Bear includes full color Journalism staffs met fifth hour every day in preparing issues of the Oracle, and working on yearbook pages. Interviews , polls, typing, writing, paste¬ up, ad selling and photography all gave students an idea of journalism outside of their own publications. To support themselves beyond the sale of ads, subscriptions and yearbooks, the department sold calenders and pen sets. Long night hours were often a part of staff work in meeting deadlines. Changing printers this year reduced printing costs by $100 for the Oracle and made it a self-sufficient publication for the first time in many years. The newspaper also changed its format to a longer sheet on newsprint with justified copy and printer set headlines. Full-color pages along with copy and layout changes marked a difference in this year ' s yearbook. The staffs, both under the leadership of Mrs. Penny Kelly, were small this year. Oracle staff consisted of five people and yearbook of nine at the beginning of the year. Three photographers headed the visual responsibilities of both publications. Yearbook staff members are Class editor Diane Foxhoven, Student life editor Sue Collins, Sports editor Debbie Ganoe, Co-editor Bill Bish, Groups editor Bobbi Warren, Co-editor Kris Jurgens, Academics editor Julie Frien, Adver¬ tising manager Linda Mugan.

II Key Club receives new sponsor; Lettermen pick Athlete of the Week Key Club members were concerned with beneficial community activities , and programs here at North. The club , a divi¬ sion of the Kiwanis , met Thursday during lunch hour. A change for the club was the addition of Mr. Roland Brownell as the new sponsor. Meeting each Friday during homeroom , Lettermen ' s Club elected the Athlete of the Week , whose picture was displayed in the front lobby showcase. They also gave the chosen athlete a t-shirt. The club sold bumper stickers to sponsor different ac¬ tivities such as a planned swim party. Any letter winner could be a member of the club.

Library aids were in charge of checking out books, putting returned books away, helping keep the library quiet, taking care of booklists, and taking inventory. Twenty students attended the Model United Nations held at the University of Northern Iowa. Half of the students par¬ ticipating were seniors who had gone as juniors and the other half were juniors recommended by the seniors and teachers. Each school represented countries which were in the real U.N. North represented In¬ dia and Brazil. Their job was to defend these countries on several controversial issues of world matters.

Her duties included recording weights and heights, organizing files, changing the sheets and pillow cases on the cots , running errands , and taking over the office when Mrs. Fjelde would leave. Personal observations from Mr. Klinzman and recommendations from teachers , along with a free period , were the requirements for becoming a hall monitor.

Under the supervision of Mr. Russ Odegaard, the club tried to set up meets with other schools. They met and held practices at the YMCA on Saturdays. Nick Christakos shows his form as he practices ping pong at the YMCA on Saturday mornings. 105 O.E. enrolls 23 students Although North had a small enrollment this year, the enrollment of twenty-three girls in Office Education outnumbered the other O.E. classes in the city. O.E. met as two regular classes during first and third hour. The girls worked at jobs in the afternoon and received V 2 credit. By filling out an application and ap¬ proval by Mrs. Jackson, any senior with one year could become part of the program. Besides taking the O.E. class, another business class was required. Fund-raising projects, such as selling stu¬ dent phone books, making and selling cook books, and printing programs for games, financed the Employer-Employee Banquet and competitors in the State and National Leadership Conference. First and third hour O.E. classes—ROW h Sheri Lattimer, Valrie Taylor, Tereasa Russell, Kim Eberhart, Debbie Parkey, Donna Bainter, Ruth Ann Scoot, Sue Davisson, Sharon Burton, Sandy Vogel.

Most important of the club ' s changes was the opening of membership to male students and to the school staff. Introduction of a spirit trophy, a com¬ pletely new idea by Pep Club, gave students a chance to participate at games and assemblies in groups. Each week a group was chosen as winner. Aside from this, the club also co¬ sponsored a semi-formal Christmas dance with Social Committee, held a car wash, sold pep tags for games, sold North sweaters, sold Homecoming mums, bought t-shirts for the swim timers, went Christmas caroling at nursing homes, and held its an¬ nual banquets, initiation, and elections. The North girls wrestling pep club, a first for North High, provided an activity for girls interested in the sport and was a great aid to all events associated with the North wrestling program. Pep Club members were designated directors of activities such as parent social, sophomore picnic, publici¬ ty, and North High Invitational meet. Above: Pep club, ROW Diane Foxhoven, Barb Inman.

Mrs. Mary Jo Morvak, business and typing teacher, succeeded Mr. John Phillips as Pep Club advisor. New uniforms and ropes added to ropejumping unit Performing at basketball halftimes was the primary function of the rope-jumpers. They practiced after school plus many times at night or early in the morning when they were close to a performance. Two big changes in the club were the ad¬ dition of new uniforms and nylon ropes. Halftime performances in Jefferson, at Briar Cliff College in Sioux City, and two North performances highlighted the Rope- jumpers ' year. Under the supervision of Miss Marilyn Quinn, they also gave demonstrations at Southeast Polk high school and many elementary schools.

Social committee — Changes role Each year Social Committee had been formed for the sole purpose of planning the Homecoming Dance. This year, however, it was a year round group and included other activities such as joining with Pep Club for a Christmas Dance. For Homecoming they planned and built the float, made decorations and refreshments for the dance, selected the band which played at the dance , and determined the cost of tickets. They also changed the election of queen and princess candidates making any girl eligible, regardless of whether she had been a princess the previous years. Meetings were held Tuesday before school and Thursday after school in the cafeteria or media center in order to give everyone a chance to attend at least once a week.

John Phillips, are placed in groups of three on each lane of the pool. In the timing of events, the best of the three times is taken as official. As in years past, the Pep Club purchased T-shirts for the club. The silkscreening and design were made by Mr. Lawson, and timers keep these shirts as their own. Also, Pep Club purchased the watches used by timers at the meets. 113 Sfudenf Council sponsors donkey bosketboll game; gives exchange day program Student Council met every Wednesday before school in room 248 to discuss ideas and activities for the benefit of the school. Although homeroom representatives were elected, the council was open for everyone to participate. Student Council tried to get the student center reopened during study halls and the hallway between 246 and 248 reopened between classes, sold iron-ons, contributed fifty dollars for the Christmas dance, and planned a sock hop and a donkey basket - ball game. Exchange day was done differently with each school holding it on a different day.

Classes High School life places a definite affect on the formation of one ' s friendships, goals, and personality. The relationship one holds with fellow members in his class is a bond like no other he may experience again. Sophomores share the excitement of new experiences, the juniors are sandwiched in-between waiting for that last year; and seniors look toward the future, with a mixture of anticipation and worry. For the graduating class, adult life is beginning to take hold. Seniors must make somewhat frightening decisions concerning their future. They must face graduation knowing they will be separated from friends whom they may never see again. For all three classes, this year was a special one to remember. With fewer people attending the school, there was more chance of having lots of friends—not only in your own class, but in those above or below you. The brotherhood and pride experienced by each student as he passes through his last three years is an intangible which is like no other he may know thereafter. Bright eyed and bushy tailed. Sophomores lose shelf " Underclassmen " " Too young " " Don ' t expect too much he ' s a sophomore " . All of these phrases seem so familiar to sophomores when they ' re in their first year. Being a sophomore can be one of the most enjoyable years if they want it to be. This year came along with the usual orientation , getting lost in the halls , then being thrown in a barrel full of trash (it ' s a tradition), and then finally settling down to being a sophomore. Sophs look up to being a junior so they won ' t be the baby class , yet fear the responsibility of a senior. And then when they are seniors they will look back on this year and wonder and wish that they were sophomores again. n. The traditional sophomore sitting on the shelf during the assemblies was eliminated because of the lack of enrollment , this made them feel good since they weren ' t left out. Inside out clothes seemed to be the sophomore day during Homecoming week, this had a real good turn-out. We will never forget our sophomore year, it gave us the chance to know what to expect as we grow older and wiser. We would like to say good-bye to our seniors for they were a great part of our best year. Sophomore spirit. I get nervous in front of crowds. 118 Coach Belding encourages sophs to go out for football at sophomore orientation.

Juniors—spirit of ' 76 Mr. Fitzgerald tells Randy Fuller that he has 12 absences. " In-between, " " left out ' " Too young to be a senior ' " Too old to be a sophomore. " All of these are terms traditionally used to describe life as a junior in high school. True, junior year is a restless one. You ' re glad to be in your se¬ cond year of high school and anxious to get to the third. Yet there are good times and classes and friends to fill up time and make the year pass by quickly. For the class of ' 76, the legacy of the sophomore shelf was end¬ ed. So, juniors missed seeing this year ' s newcomers take over the space on their former shelf. Junior life involved junior red, white, and blue day, (in honor of their bicentennial graduation year); a chance at the U.N. trip, and other activities in which juniors alone participated. However, like the sophomore and senior classes, juniors had friends both inside and outside their class, and also shared activities with the school as a whole. The " middle " year gave us a chance to learn, have fun, reminisce about the preceeding year as we watched sophomores, and look forward to our graduating year, which seniors told us we ' d love. Juniors were inbetweens, but that is what set them apart and actually made the class as unique as any other before or after. Junior Scoff Hodges shows determination.

Aside from these courses, some students had an empty schedule and worked half the day. Others had home study. And of course, there were the more anxious who graduated in January. The last football game, homecoming dance, and basketball game, were a few of the final activities shared among the multitude of seniors. To many it was some of the little things that were the most en¬ joyable, e.g. the last stand in lunchlines, the last cram session for a test, the last locker cleanout—all were trivial, but nonetheless mark¬ ed the beginning to an end as did the bigger events of the school. LuAnn Craig and Sondra Secovec enjoy the peace of the library. Roderick Bradley tries to hold up Mr. Swanson. 134 PATRICIA ADAIR BARRY ALDRICH CYNTHIA LYNNE ANCELL " Clara " Student Council 3-8.

Advertisements As enrollment decreases , the task of creating a yearbook that is com¬ parable to those produced by schools with much larger student bodies becomes increasingly more difficult. The size of our school has a direct influence on the decision that a businessman must make—whether or not to advertise in the Polar Bear. Many businesses did not think it would be profitable to buy ads in a yearbook with so few constituents. Another adverse affect of our small enrollment is that the demand of the students did not meet the supply of yearbooks that must be produced. This rise in cost made the sale of ads even more important to help us keep the cost of the Polar Bear as low as possible. We would like to thank these advertisers for having enough faith to patronize us. Let ' s show these people that NHS students can consume as much as anyone else.

To all students and faculty, Vic was an inspiration with his courage and good spirits during his long stays in the hospital. An active school participant, Vic was involved in choir, stage crew, and chess team, as well as Music Theatre class, in which he gained the lead of Master Toymaker in " Babes in Toyland " . A concert was given by the vocal music department and Pep Club sponsored Vic Lyle Week in honor of Victor, in order to express the concern of all at North for his health, and the admiration of his courage. As a result of the donation money collected in return for paper butterflies, the butterfly has remained a symbol of strength and freedom, for which everyone honors Victor Lyle. 168 THE MONEY STORE PLAZA STATE BANK Merle Hay Mall • Harding Road at Euclid • Hickman Road at 64th Member F.D.I.C.

school year came to an end, everyone looked toward the future. Sophomores looked forward to being juniors. And likewise, juniors anxiously awaited filling the seniors ' shoes. There came the concern about what would happen to the existence of North High, due to lack of enrollment. Could busing be the answer? Or freshman attendance? Only next fall will there be a reply to that question. For those who graduated, there were the anxieties of making decisions. Some would go off to college and be separated from friends, while others would go straight to the battle in the world of employment. However, no matter what each individual decided, he knew it was a turning point in his life. Looking back, one can see that all the occurrences which took place within the past nine months were as much a part, if not more, of every students life at North, than it would be to someone of a large school. 183
