The Flip Side . . . The title is catchy, no those 45’s you buy so you doubt about it. It conjures up thoughts of records — can hear your favorite tune and in the bargain are stuck with a number on the flip side that you’ve never heard and usually don’t like once you have heard it. Another possibility is the two sides of a coin. Some would say that entire football games depend on the beginning coin toss. calling out heads or tails can mean winning or losing, sometimes just the opportunity to be included, other times the loss of money. But within the pages of this book, The Flip Side has another meaning. . . There are other occasions where I 2 Opening

The Flip Side here means the other side of Prairie. Things are covered that aren’t the usual yearbook fare. In addition to the normal coverage of the year, things like sports, classes, music and drama, and special events, the reader will find stories and layouts on different subjects. Opinion polls were used for the first time. You can read about Prairie students’ favorite things. The junior pages offer some interesting reading on how people view our school, being a teenager and life in general. Student managers, the outdoor lounge, what sophomores do in their spare time, and Kirkwood KEY courses are a few extras you will find. Assemblies offer a change from the usual routine at PHS. Here two members of the Don Redlich Dance Company demonstrate one of their many exercises. 4 Opening

The parade did not go around the track as usual because the new track had just been laid. Regis was our foe on Friday night. It was a very exciting and close game, with the final score Regis 13, Prairie 12. The dance was on Saturday rather than Friday. The theme for the evening was “The Main Event.” Music was provided by “Spice.” King and Queen were Scott Appleget and Tammy Roy. Tammy, daughter of Mrs. Carol Roy and the late Ted Roy, has served on student council for two years, been on the track team, in girls letter club, in Junior Achievement for three years. She was president of JA and secretary of student council. Tammy was very surprised and pleased to be named queen. Scott is on the Prairie football and track teams, manager for basketball, in choir and coalition, and vice-president of his class.

Senior Option Offers a Change What is senior P.E.? Is it different from regular P.E.? These might be questions some students ask themselves when deciding whether to take this option. “ It’s a class where the students can pick their own activity and do it outside of class, report on it and hand it in at the end of the nine weeks,” commented teacher Lin Hixenbaugh. “Some of the different units we had this year in gym are aerobics, weightlifting, (for girls), team hand ball, and basketball,” said teacher Jim Kimball. By the time students reach high school they already have hopes of getting their license and driving by themselves without their parents. But before they can do this they have to take driver education. This class helps the students to be safe drivers and they learn how to save gas. They spend 54 hours of class during school and they drive on their free time. During the summer the class meets for six weeks. They have thirty hours of classroom work and six hours of driving. Both sessions contain films and lectures to instruct students on the many aspects of driving and highway safety. r;- ^bove: Seniors Amy Greenlief and Karen Heaver : oractice some on the spot first aid in P.E. class. *oe *e: Getting out of school and taking a drive is usually fun, except when the weather acts up out on the Prairie.

What Motivates People to Run? going — How does the cross country team keep mile after mile after mile after MILE .. . until some of them have run so club ? What makes anyone milefar that they become members of the 1000 beat their feet on the ground over and over, until their lungs are about to burst ? Most of the eight members of the cross country team, as well as other run - ners, voiced their opinions on this. Kurt Tjelmeland and Chris Bell run to stay in shape. Dan Dennis went out for cross country to get ready for track and basket - ball, and because of the inspiration of Coach Hawkins . Scott Serovy, Clark Humble, and Doug Roy run because they like to. The team didn ’t have a winning sea son, largely because of their small size Since there were only eight members, they could only run in one race at each meet . Normally, a cross country team has four teams, which each have seven members . That way there are varsity, junior varsity, sophomore, and freshman teams . But with only eight people, we just had a varsity squad. One reason for the small size of the team is the popularity of football . Foot ball is considered more glamorous than cross country. Guys who do nothing but sit on the bench all season would still rather be on the football team than the cross country team. Members of the cross country team - were asked why they picked that sport over football, and proved that there are reasons to do so . Dan Dennis wanted to letter, and he is more running -oriented. Chris Bell wanted to try something differ - ent, and Doug Roy wants to get a taste of - . every sport . Scott Serovy doesn’t think he ' s that good in football, and Clark Humble picked cross country because he likes to run. Besides cross country, Clark has also run in three marathons. After trying both cross country and football, he prefers cross country . The cross country team members aren’t the only ones who run . For exam - ple, Barry Davis runs about five miles every day. He usually runs across the wrestling room, at 7 :30 a .m ., 11 :30 a.m., and after school. On the weekends he runs outside .Barry does this in addi tion to his regular wrestling workouts, to keep in shape. Mick Mattiace also runs, to keep in shape. He says it’s the best overall, inex - pensive exercise you can do, with the exception of swimming. He usually runs alone, four or five times a week, after school. He runs about two to four miles "a around the campus. - « Above: Everyone of us knows at least a little bit about running, through our experiences in P.E. class.

Prairie Students Vote on Their “Favorite Things Everybody has a favorite something, so we decided to find out a few of the student body’s favorite things. A survey was conducted in all the homerooms, asking each student to name his or her favorite food, car, book, song, color, pastime, sport, class, musical group, and T.V. program. In the food category pizza won in a landslide. Distant seconds were steak, shrimp, and tacos. In the car race Camero nosed out Trans-Am which was followed by Corvette and Mustang. “ The Outsiders’’ won the prize for favorite book with “The Promise’’ and “Wifey’’ tying for second. In the song category “Please Don’t Go” sang out over “ Still” and “Babe.” The favorite color was blue, getting almost all the votes. The winners in other categories were as follows. In pastime it was watching T.V. which even beat out partying. Football outdistanced basketball to capture the title. Believe it or not the class with the most students voting for it was math. It just edged out gym, which hung on until the end in its bid for most popular. The only musical group to get past the critics was “ Styx” and “ The Doobies” sang second to them. “ Saturday Night Live” dominated the ratings for favorite T.V. show.

Mr. Leeper Is an Old Face in a New Place Many of you may have known Mr. s taken on the job of administrative Leeper as a P.E. teacher, but this year he' assistant. Mr. Leeper misses certain aspects of teaching. The student contact and competitive games that he taught in P.E. were enjoyable and challenging, but he likes planning his own work schedule. He likes his new position very much. He feels that Prairie students are enjoyable and challenging. Most of the students accept discipline when they have it coming and he respects them for it. He enjoys trying to help students with their problems. Often in helping the students it's difficult because there is no immediate answer. Patience in dealing with the problems isn’t always easy. Mr. Leeper was also a football coach, girls’ gymnastics coach, Junior High basketball coach, and is still the track coach. He feels that coaching is a great opportunity to get close to Prairie stu - dents. By working with them it is possible to see results. It’s very rewarding to him to see the athletes excel in their areas of interest. One of Mr. Leeper’s favorite hobbies is hunting. He hunts grouse, pheasants, quail, and ducks. Training dogs is another hobbie. He owns a yellow labrador and two English Setters. He’s also involved in trap shooting. The shoots usually offer prizes or money. His best day was when he won $800. Mr. Leeper has noticed good progress in the growth of girls ’ athletics, changes in dress codes, changes in school policy and procedures, equal rights, and expansion of curriculum for students’ needs. He attended Washington High School in Washington, Iowa. He went to Wartburg College and received a BA, also Oklahoma College where he received an MA. Mr. place, its students and its teachers.

School Publications Make Changes There have been many changes in the school newspaper and yearbook. Both have a new look. The newspaper has a new size of print. The new format makes it look more streamlined and professional. The yearbook is arranged in chronological order instead of by categories. Having a new publisher will also change :ne looks of the 1980 yearbook. To sell yearbooks, the staff had a pubcity campaign. All the members wore special t-shirts. There was also a record give-away. The cafeteria was “picketed” to make sure everyone bought their yearbook. The yearbook staff meets every Wednesday after school with co-sponsors Jean McMenimen and Roxene Schreiber. Since everything can’t be done at meet - ings, most staff members work on the yearbook in their spare time. The school newspaper, Hawk Talk, is distributed to every homeroom ten to twelve a year. To get ideas for stories, they brainstorm. Everyone thinks of several ideas. The best ideas become the topics of stories. There was a special edition of the newspaper called the Chicken Hawk. It contained parodies written by composition classes. The students liked it but the adults didn’t. Sponsor Nancy Talbot said, “In spite reruns, deadlines, broof problems — ken arms — we had a lot of fun. We learned a lot in producing the Hawk Talk."

Women ’s Lib has come to Prairie High . The traditional male dominance of Indus trial Arts classes has come to an end . Each semester, more girls decide to take shop classes as part of their elective credit. Previously, many girls were afraid to take these classes because they would be looked down upon and considered unfeminine . These attitudes have been slowly changing, and now many of the girls who take shop courses regularly wear dresses and are considered to be some of the most feminine girls in school. Shop teachers encourage girls to take their classes and are understandably pleased about the large enrollment this year. They are hoping that even more girls will enroll next year. The girls who are taking shop classes this year enjoy them very much. They sometimes feel they are given advan - tages because they are girls, but they also feel they have to work extra hard at the beginning of the class to prove that they can do the work, even though they are girls . They feel if more girls would take shop classes, these slight problems could become a thing of the past.

Novelty Flourishes in Plays All year long the Prairie drama department tried new and exciting things. They began in the fall by staging a production composed of four original one-act plays. It was held on October 27 and 28, in the Little Theatre. The plays, which have not been published, were written by Howard Blanning. Howard is a member of the University of Iowa Writers Workshop, and has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Iowa. The four plays ranged in theme from the creation of man to the destruction of man. "Man the Maker” dealt with man’s creation, "Placia” was about the bureaucracy of society, and "Ratzo at the Helm” portrayed the downfall of man and society. The comic relief of the night was "First Night”,an amusing little Arabian Story. "Winnie the Pooh” was the children’s play. It wasn’t an original script, but it did have something unusual about it. It had a double cast. Since the show toured to different elementary schools during the day, an alternate cast was needed so that not everybody would have to go on every tour. That way none of the actors missed too much school. The show was performed on December 15 in the Little Theatre, and it toured for three days during the week after that. "Arsenic and Old Lace” was the final drama production of the year. It was held on May 9 and 10, in the Little Theatre. "Arsenic and Old Lace” is a very well-known comedy, which was written in the early 1940’s. Besides the brilliant performances of the actors, the highlight of Prairie’s production of the show was the set. The play requires a rather elaborate set, since it must include steps leading to an upper floor, several doors, a window, and a window seat. Only a few people did most of the work on the set, but they labored long and hard. They worked almost every free moment they had, especially the last two weeks before production. The end result was extremely realistic,and well-built. It was definitely the best set out of all the three dramatic plays. Above Left: Winnie the Pooh (Lisa Campbell) ponders one of her many problems, such as how to rid the forest of an overly maternal kangaroo, and how to get more honey.

Under the guidance of a new head coach, the Boys’ Basketball team came close to winning the conference title. Coach Jeff Wessel and Assistant Coach Kevin Behrends said that the best game of the season that the varsity played was against Marion. “We played without key players, but we still played well. into the game we thought it would be tough, but we had them by twenty- five points on the court really aided the team throughout the season. The top rebounders were Mike Porter and Mark Ditch. Mitch Porter carried double honors by being both the top scorer and the person who made the most free throws. Senior Going . ” The sophomore coach, Paul Schenkelberg, commented that the best game the sophs had was at home against LinnMar. Both teams went into that game undefeated. “We knew we had to win and it would be tough,” said Schenkelberg. The team improved as the year progressed, with leadership from the seniors and increased confidence from the juniors. The two returning lettermen on the team were Ron Downs and captain Don Jansa. excellent ball handler and his experience Mark Ditch showed great improvement and earned a place in the starting lineup. Scott Lynch commented on this year's coaching staff: “The coaches worked all year getting us ready for all the games so they should be given credit for their hard work with the team. Coach Wessel did an excellent job and he never gave up his confidence in the team, of the season went fast when we were winning, but toward the end of the season things were slower because we were losing,” said Dennis Bruns. The varsity ended their season with a record of 7 wins /11 losses, while the sophomores Jansa proved himself to be an ended with a season record of 11 wins /7 losses, making them co-champions, with Linn Mar, of the ECIC.

Close Finishes Are the Name of the Game Even though a varsity record of 3 wins and 17 losses may not be evident of a successful season, the girls’ varsity team experienced a learning year, according to some players on the team. Coach Mike McCue stated, “I had a very good group of girls, showing team effort and doing everything that was asked of them.” He also said, ‘‘From the beginning ’till the end we accomplished a lot with each individual’s abilities growing. As a team, we progressed to be competitive and respected.” It’s important for the team to be together and this year it was. The team went to the Iowa Cornets game, Coe and Mount Mercy games, state basketball tournament, and had parties which involved the parents. When Coach McCue was asked what he himself had learned he said, “ I learned something everyday, from the people to the game situation.” The sophomore team had a record of 6- 11, and was coached by Tom Hoffmann. Coach Hoffmann said the team improved daily, continually improving on fundamentals. They wanted to get better and they did, and he feels this is the key to success. When asked what the team was like to work with, Coach Hoffmann said they were very enjoyable and had a lot of potential. Hoffmann feels the team needs to work hard on the off season and if they don’t they’ll short change themselves, because they have a lot of talent.

Because of a program with * 'kwood Community College, our neighIcor just up the road, students may take vocational courses at Kirkwood that give -em credit toward graduation require-ents at Prairie. Counselor Alan Maas - - nks that the program offers many j ::portunities to students interested in zarticular careers that would otherwise unavailable. The courses offered are: \ jrses Aid Training, Data Processing, Wielding, Child Care, Building Trade, and - jto Service. All courses are only open to seniors except in unusual circumstances . Some of the courses have presquisites that the student must fulfill by EKing a course at the high school before enrolling. Others require only that the student have an interest in exploring :=reer opportunities in that field. Another new offering this year at Prai•e was the Agriculture program. This, is associated with Kirkwood. Although the class is taught on the Prairie campus, the instructor is employed by Kirkwood. Morris Pounds was the instructor this year, and he also taught the courses at Clear Creek High School in Tiffin. There are two tracks a student has to choose from: the production track where livestock and grain production is studied, and the urbanized agri-business track where animal care and land use and conservation is studied. This offering enables students to study in-depth subjects they may later use in their careers. This was also the first year that a career exploration day was held at Kirkwood. Prairie, Linn Mar, and Marion high school students participated. Students pre-registered in two areas they were interested in. Buses transported students as they spent either the entire morning or afternoon gathering career information.

Mr. Hawkins started it by lifting weights himself, interest started to grow, and so did the club. The weight room was in six different places before the new one was established. Mr. Hawkins, Mr. Smith, and Mr. Oertel make up our weightlifting coaching staff. All of the coaches agree that weightlifting contributes in physical conditioning for other sports; members of the club agree that this is true also. Weightlifting is for everybody. You can do it in your spare time or be a part of the group. The weightlifters chart among themselves, and everyone is striving to be number one. Yet the competition is mainly against oneself, you try to beat your own previous records.

After practice they make sure the equipment used is put away and keep up the supply of towels for after showers. A manager at a game is more like a peer coach. When a player is on the bench, encouragement is given and the manager psychs the team up just as much as a coach does. They join in on the team gatherings around the coach to make sure everyone has enough water to quench their thirsts. When the game is over and the team is in the locker room, the manager is busy collecting towels, equipment, and cleaning out the locker room. This year two of our managers stood out more than others. They were Becky Mitchell and Craig Joens. Becky was the manager of the varsity football team and Craig for the sophomore girls’ basketball team. Becky hopes to return next year as manager of the football team. She said that the guys on the team treated her better than they had other managers. Becky thought over the offer that Mr. Oertel made to her to be the manager and was happy that she accepted and was in turn accepted by the team. Mr. Hoffman asked Craig Joens to be the manager for his team. Craig was surprised when asked to take the job. Craig finally decided to manage the team because he thought it would be fun. He said that the girls didn’t give him a hard time and that he got along very well with all of them. Above Left: Wrestling manager Robert Christen watches an important match.

We asked them “How do you feel about going to Prairie? Have those feelings changed since you were a sophomore? Explain how.” Some juniors said they like it this year better because last year they felt like the seniors and juniors thought they were better than the sophomores. A few of these juniors are Lori Vogt, ‘‘I like it sometimes, I like the feeling of knowing just about everyone. Yes, I felt inferior as a sophomore, like all the seniors and juniors are out to get us.” Devin Pipkin; “ When I was a sophomore it was just another school, now I am proud to be here. It has a lot to offer, if you care to take the time to look.” Scott Simon; “ It’s all right, but it’s kind of a drag now and It seems better than when ! was -I sophomore.” Robin Mizaur; “O.K., yes.1 now that I am a junior I feel like peopifl don’t look at me as a little sophomore.”I Other juniors said they like going t: Prairie because all the people are nice! and they get along with other people.

My feelings were different last year. I didn’t like coming to school last year because I didn’t know as many people.” Theresa Zalesky said, “ I like it. I have gotten to know people and teachers better.” Other juniors like Prairie for other reasons. Brenda Boland said she loves going to Prairie, that it’s the best.

She’s become aware of the bad things at other schools — too many people, drug problems and fights. Pam Ritchie thinks Prairie is just the right size; you know everyone in the school and that's really neat. Bobbi Gilbert said she really likes Prairie. She never thought she would, because she was so happy at her old school. She thinks people are really nice and they help you become a part of this school. Juniors 59

I Teen: Good/Bad The second question in our polling of the juniors was: “ What’s good and what’ s bad about being a teenager today? The class had varied and interesting answers. Almost everyone could think of something bad, but there were some students who could not come up with anything good. The area of responsibility, or lack of it, was mentioned often on both sides of the question. they feel restricted as to what they can do and when. impose too many rules and don’t allow their kids to make their own decisions. A few mentioned they want to be considered as adults. Many teens mentioned that Some felt their parents Other juniors felt good about the amount of say they have in making decisions. Many mentioned that they do have freedom of choice about their actions. Angie Hastings said she didn’t have a whole lot of responsibility, but enough. Many of the students mentioned the amount of mobility teens have today. Driving their own cars and being able to go different places came in as good points. Lisa Netolicky likes the opportunity to do new things. Steve Smith noted that teens have a chance to do good in school and elsewhere. A number of those people returning questionnaires mentioned relationships with their peers. Many said they feel peer pressure to do things bad for themselves, like smoke, drink, or take drugs. Michelle Terpkosh felt there is way too much competition in sports and elsewhere. On the good side, being with friends and having close relationships were mentioned. The juniors pointed out other disadvantages. Some of them were: inflation and the price of gas, worrying about the future and the draft, being cut down by adults and many pressures. But, they mentioned many more good things, too. Some felt teens get about everything they want, and have a lot of fun. Suzie Gallager summed things up well: “ Today I feel we have too many pressures. It seems everywhere you look you find problems. But I think this brings people closer together. Friends try to work things out with each other.” 60 Juniors Above: Kyle Vondracek and Angie Hastings fix ud the junior hallway during Homecoming week.

Kathy Yarbrough said “ I do think the 80’s will be different, they're xing to be a lot more computerized. I hope we figure out how to stop inflation and straighten out the government.” Pam Ritchie commented, “ I think as the years go on things will appear to change to be more modern. I think we’ll also have to try new things for energy and start depending on them.” Stephanie Hohensee foresees the 80’s as more action packed and fast paced. Julie de Neui thinks that things will become stricter. Bobbi Gilbert thinks the 80’s will be different because her generation will be adults and look at life differently. Michelle Terpkosh said, ” 1 sure hope so. The 70’s were fairly good, but I hope the 80's will be much better and I’ll be able to do more things and hopefully have some better times.” Suzie Gallager was very hopeful, “I think we’ll see great finds in science with power and automobiles and cures for diseases. Anyway I hope so.” We’ll see what the future brings.

Making One Wish The fourth and final question that was asked was, “ If you had one wish what would it be?” Lisa Netolicky’s wish was to marry a really super guy. Brenda Boland had a similar wish. She wants to get a really good job after college and get married. Both Troy Schulz and Lori Vogt had the same wish. They want a billion dollars. Mike Malik's wish was to spend a couple of years just traveling without having to worry about the expenses. Laurie Rummells had the wish of being an actress. Dennis Bruns would like to play college basketball. Joe Nekvinda answered, “ To do as many things as I can with the rest of my life.” Angie Hastings would like to stay sixteen always. A few juniors had the wish that our country not go to war. Some of them were Dawn Messer, Scott Simon and Steve Smith. Some people couldn’t think of just one wish and put down things that they would have to choose between. Stephanie Hohensee would want to stop crime and have world peace. To be a millionaire, get married and live happily ever after living in a world of peace was Theresa Zalesky’s wish. Michelle Terpkosh had a great idea and wished for many more wishes. The most popular wish was put in many ways but the same idea came across. Gayle Loomis wished that we wouldn’t have such large conflicts with other countries, and that people could get along with each other instead of trying to find each other's faults. Kathy Yarbrough backed up her wish with things that could happen if her wish were to come true. She said, “I guess my wish would be for peace on earth. If we had ~e-e Anderson tier Elliff »ry Fite ir- Glass Nley Glass fecta Haynes ^-ette Jones Lorie Kessler Dawn Klein Randy Miller Debbie Osborne Pam Ritchie Stacie Schmidt Don Schrader Steve Sherard Robyn Stacey Kim Waggener Kathy Watts Scott Wieser Lisa Witte peace we could have an open exchange of food, natural resources and technology. If we shared things the whole world would be better off. We would all advance and share our learning. By using the brain power of all countries we should be able to solve almost all of our problems.” Juniors 65

' Counselors Both counselors, Alan Maas and Bonnie Malone, keep very busy, each helping students in every way they can and serving on commit tees for various programs which help kids. Mr. Maas is the coordinator on the steering committee at Kirkwood which lets students take some of Kirkwood’s classes. Ms. Malone is on the Native Talent Committee which put together the All Metro Career Days. The counselors spend a lot of time working with career planning and provide information on jobs, colleges that meet the students - needs, and vocational schools. Mr. Mass said they, the counselors, need to be informed to answer questions, and help kids relate to each other better. Our counselors coordinate spe - cial education programs and work to get students into special pro - grams, contact parents, students, and teachers to meet with them about getting into these programs. School Nurse Therese Johnson has been work - ing 8 years as our school nurse and says she really likes her job. She said it’s a fine place to work and likes work here at the high school with the older kids. Therese likes to promote wel ness rather than treat illness . She tries to take away the fears people have about their health, so the don’t make a little ache more tha' it really is. When it comes to counseling with drugs, alcohol, etc. the counselors handle most of that. Said Therese ‘‘I handle most of the referrals which will best help the person ana make him feel most comfortable.” As to Wellness Day which was held April 16th Therese helped plar ideas and arrange some speakers. She feels it ’s very important to think well and that’s what she likes to help people do. * - 66 Counselors

Only once every ten years do we have the opportunity to see the decades change. The 1970' s are behind us now, and the 1980' s lay ahead. The last decade saw many changes. Fashion went through its usual rapid swings. Hemlines moved up and down, hair was long and straight, then short and curly, guys ' heels were tall then short, while girls’ just got higher. Music changed from soft rock to hard, to punk, to disco, to country, and then to the point where you could listen to whatever turned you on. Maybe that’s what the 70’s were all exchanging the conformity of the 50’s and the rebellion of the 60’s for an emphasis on the individual. 72 Closing about —

of us. So we are left with a new decade ahead It is interesting to speculate on what it might bring. Will it bring world peace, as so many of the sophomores hoped? Will solutions be found to the world’s problems? Maybe a cure for cancer, zero population growth, clean air and water, and a non-polluting energy source are some of the things we can look forward to in the years to come. Our own school made great strides in the past decade. Will that continue? Can we hope for continued success in our academic efforts, as well as our extra activities? The potential is there. It is up to each one of us to do our part in making it happen. Closing 74

Dave Bennett Named New Prarie Softball Coach What is there that could possibly influence girls to come back to school day after day and spend hours working in the hot sun, even after classes have ended? It’s called Prairie Girls’ softball. Many girls, even seniors who have graduated, find great enjoyment in continuing their sports careers over the summer. It is a good chance to stay in shape and keep in touch with classmates and friends. The 1979 Softball team had a respectable 14-15 record. Tina Pulver and Nancy Cisar were both named to the first team of All-Metro and ECIC conference. The girls were coached by the departing Tom McAreavy, assisted by Phyl Britcher. The 1980 team has sixteen returning players and four new people. The new coach is junior high teacher Dave Bennett. Phyl will continue to assist. Coach Bennett was excited by all the talent he saw as practices started. He said that if all the girls would dedicate themselves to some hard work and concentration they should have a very good season. .

Near the end of the year, two big dances were held. The Sadie Hawkins It lasted from 8:00Prairie’s Dances Vary From Farmers to Formals hours at the concession stands for football games to raise enough money. Hov dance was held on April 19, in the PHS gymnasium. This is the event where the girls have to ask the guys, instead of the other way around. 11:00 p.m., and the music was provided by a disc jockey from KCRG. The Sadie Hawkins dance was sponsored by the Student Council. It was a very informal dance and jeans were the most common attire. The gymnasium was decorated with hay to fit the rustic theme, and the bleachers were also decorated with colorful streamers. The Student Council raised money for the dance by raising the prices of the tickets to $1.75 for singles, and $3.50 for couples. Even so, they didn’t make any profit off of holding the dance, but it was a lot of fun to attend. The other big dance that was held at the end of the year was, of course, the Junior-Senior Prom. This is a very formal event. Most people wear long dresses or tuxedos. The girls usually wear the long dresses, and the guys usually wear the tuxedos. The prom was sponsored by the entire junior class. They worked long, hard - ever, the main people in charge of the prom were the junior class officers, Jir Shebetka, Jim Rotter, Lisa Joens, art: Lisa Jensen. Mr. Werning and Mr. MyerE served as advisors to them. The prom was held on May 2, fro - 9:00-1:00 p.m., at Stouffer’s ballroom ' Cedar Rapids. The theme was “ PrecioL: and Few”, and the prom colors were pas - tels. Couples danced to the sounds of th T band, “Suede”, which played a variety & rock music.

i The 70's 102

Looking back on the “ me” decade, events seem to fade from memory. In the '70’s, many things happened; Prairie wrestled to its first state title in history, the United States celebrated its 200th birthday, fourteen year old Nadia Comaneci gave a perfect performance in the 1976 Olympics, the gasoline shortage sent the price to over $1.00 per gallon, one of the most popular singing groups of all time, The Beatles, broke up, and jogging became a popular way to stay in shape. Other new developments during the decade were the birth of Louise Brown, the first test -tube baby, miniThe ’70’s: A Decade of Nostalgia skirts were out of fashion and the midi was “ in,” and C.B. radios became popular, bringing words like “good buddy,” and “ 10-4” into the everyday vocabulary of the American people. Archie Bunker became everyone' s favorite bigot, and with the continued increase in fuel costs, people were trading in their gas-guzzlers for more economical modes of transportation, like mopeds or bicycles. No one will ever forget those adorable robots C3PO and R2D2 who fought the evil-doer Darth Vadar to free the galaxy from tyranny in “ Star Wars,” the big moneymaking motion picture of the ' 70’s. Streaking, punk rock, and toga parties were all in vogue with the youth in the U.S. during the last ten years. The fifties became popular in the se enties. T.V. shows like “Happy Days/ ’ . “Laverne and Shirley,” and the movies “ Grease,” and “ American Graffiti sparked nostalgia in the American public. Disco became popular in the ear v ' 70’s by the BeeGees and the movie “ Saturday Night Fever.” By the end of the decade it was on its way out, take^ over by New Wave rock with such stars as “ The B52’s and Elvis Costello”. The '70’s will be remembered for all of this and much more. Far Left: President Richard M. Nixon resigned his office in disgrace because of his involvement in the Watergate scandal.

Tennis Is Both a Fun and Challenging Sport Tennis is a sport that not only takes skill and endurance, but a lot of devotion.

Fravel English students took field trips to see rfays, libraries, movies, and a political andidate. They also had speakers visit. of this shows the flip side of English that there ’s more to it than just — eadin’ and writin’. On February 29th, through a joint ffort of all the P.H.S. English teachers, a purney was made to Hancher auditonum in Iowa City, so English students could view a Tyrone Guthrie production of “ The Glass Menagerie.” The Guthrie Theatre is a group of professional actors based in Minneapolis. Nancy Spector ’s World Literature classes also saw “Vanities,” the Cedar Rapids Community Theatre production of a play that shows what happens to three 1962 cheerleaders and “ A MidSummer Nights Dream,” one of Shakespeare’s classics. After reading the book “Heart of Darkness,” they went to see the movie “ Apocalypse Now” and they found it was an interesting comparison. Some field trips took place right at school. Terry Dyrland had make-up and mime demonstrations for his drama classes. Nancy Spector had Mr. Henley speak about Jazz in the fifties for her Selected Authors class. The class was reading a book about beatniks, called On the Road, by Jack Kerouac, and how the pace of Jazz fit into the lifestyle of the beatniks. Not all of the field trips had to do with the performing arts. Nancy Talbot took kids from her newspaper, journalism, everyday communications, and mass media classes to Iowa City to hear Senator Kennedy speak. Cathy Jones’ Senior Seminar classes took a field trip to the Coe College library to check out the references available there. Field trips offer an alternative method of learning, by allowing students to actually see things for themselves. Left: Paula Hernandez sets up her layout for the "Hawk Talk" in journalism class.

Extra! Extra! Read the Latest in English News People At the beginning of the year, Prairie High School welcomed a new English teacher, Nancy Talbot. She teaches newspaper, journalism, everyday communications, and mass media classes. Before she came here, she taught at Exira High School in southern Iowa. She said kids have a lot more freedom here, what with the modular schedule, and all their free mods. The kids at Prairie don' t know how good they have it. They have a very caring faculty and principal. Another teacher, Mrs. Jones, also came to Prairie, but she was returning after a year’s leave-of-absence. Her leave of absence was taken to get her Master’s Degree in developmental reading at the University of Iowa, and to have a child. Besides this, she worked as a teaching assistant at the University of Iowa, serving as a supervisor for student teachers placed in the Iowa City secondary schools. Main News Nothing stays the same, and the English Department is no exception . It changes from year to year. However, this year there were some rather special changes. Students are now only allowed to take one English class, because class loads were getting too heavy, and to cut down on the number of early graduations. Because of both of these changes, teachers now have more time to spend on their classes, and more time for departmental meetings and the coordinating of activities. Also, Elaine Mulherin set up a guide This way, if any of the teachers It assures us of continuity in Above: Melinda Lamoreux, of the Cedar Rap'3 the program.

Emphasis on Media and Practical Experience Students taking Business Education courses are learning valuable skills, both for personal use and as a springboard to a profession. Students have ten courses to choose from in the area of business. Mr. Werning, one of the instructors, said that he and Mr. McCue received many calls from employers seeking good students to hire in their businesses; in fact, the demand for qualified people exceeds the available supply. Practical experience was stressed this year. Typing and shorthand students help prepare the minicourse information. Typing students also got the elementary report cards ready for the teachers. Tony Mora, a student teacher who is from Nigeria, added to the Art Department staff second semester. Tony has a PhD. in Art Education and is preparing himself to teach at the secondary level. There was a change in the curriculum this year, said instructor Bob Hawkins. The new class is called Mixed Media, a combination of jewelry, craft, and sculpture. The media used are clay, metal, fabric, and wood. One of the reasons for the change was the increase in the price of silver used in jewelry.

Entertainment 112

Everyone may know what happens at . A All Kinds of Entertainment Available at Prairie ble. the Music Parents’ Variety Show, but what you may not know is who does the planning work to make it a success success is just what it was to many people who attended. Most thought the show was funny and that the entertainment appealed to all. Betty Scheetz and Karen Dennis were in charge of the carnival, and Mary Hynek and Phyl Britcher were responsible for the Little Theatre show,along with many other people who donated their 0* - time and help. The show this year was called “Kiddie Kapers” and was about two twin sisters who were two years old and what things happened to them and their friends. Mr. Price felt some of the high points were returning alumni,Kevin Villers, who sang the “ Kite Song” from “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown", Keith Elias playing his saxophone, and the dancing babies (Mary and friends). The King and Queen were from the Intermediate building, and were Angie Bowersox and Jason HumThe money raised this year by the Music Parents will go toward new banc uniforms. The Choir Club Variety Show was he1 : after the Pig Roast and was sponsorec by the high school choir club.

We got to know two foreign exchange students. Pedro Odio is a student from Costa Rica, and was a guest of Julie de Neui and her family during the winter . Anni Pederson, a high school graduate from Denmark, came to Iowa to learn to speak better English. German and Spanish were brought closer together, as once again the German room was in the library area next to the Spanish room. A new textbook program was started in Spanish, and once 115 Music and Foreign Language JaWohl” It Is! everyone had gotten used to the switch most agreed that the new book was much better than the twelve year old one. Spanish I and II benefited this year. The advanced book will be used next year. As always, many students in both Spanish and German are busy planning for trips to Mexico and Germany in 1981. A highlight of the year in band was the trip to Arlington in April. It was a five day trip by chartered bus, which featured a stay at Six Flags Over Texas. Such fund raisers as selling candy, chocolate, candles and concession stands helped the students earn the necessary money for the trip. The choir members were still hearing Hawaiian music as they started off the r year of music study. The trip to Hawaii in June of 1979 was a success and will be long remembered by all who got to gc along. A highlight for those students ta - ing individual lessons with Mr. Price was the Christmas recital they performed for each other and a few honored guests. Al the students showed the progress the . had made, and the things they hac learned during lessons first semester.

Students Light-Up The Outdoor Lounge Prairie’s outdoor lounge is a unique part of the high school. It is a place where students can relax, talk to friends, get a suntan or just a place where they can smoke. The outdoor lounge was formed when a group of students got together and made the suggestion. This was eight years ago and the lounge is still going strong. Mr. Steine feels that the lounge is beneficial because it keeps the bathrooms clean, eliminates restroom monitors, and provides students that have a smoking problem with a place to light up. They aren't made to feel like criminals or rejects. Only about onefifth of the student body uses the lounge to smoke. Prairie is the only school in the Metro area that has a designated area for smoking. Every school has a place where people can smoke privately, even if it isn’t an openly announced spot. We bring the issue out in the open and recognize the need. The outdoor lounge is dedicated to Lauren J. Slycord. It is a worthy addition to Prairie High School and deserves compliments rather than the criticism it has been receiving.

Girls’ Track Team Has Most Successful Year Ever The 1980 season was the best ever in the history of Prairie girls’ track. The girls worked very hard to top themselves from last year and proved they could do it by hitting new highs in several events. It started at the State Indoor where Prairie finished seventh, with Nancy Cisar being state champion for the second time in the 440 yard dash and getting second in the 300 yard dash. This was followed by several relays in which Prairie placed fairly high up each time. During the course of the season, several new school records were established. Nancy Cisar now holds the record in the 400 meter dash, the 400 meter hurdles, and the 100 meter dash. Freshman Angie Joens has the mark in the shot put. Two relay records were broken, by Sonya Schulz, Susann Lebsock, Sherry Houschild,and Nancy Cisar in the 440; and Ann Oldorf, Susann Lebsock, Dawn Roy,and Sonja Schulz in the 880. The highlight of the season was the state track meet, at which Prairie placed ninth. The 440 relay team came in fifth, and Nancy Cisar got second in the 400 meter hurdles, and a first in the 400 meter run . Her time in the latter event was the best of any runner in the state, in any class. Coach Roger Stigers was assisted by Tom Hoffmann and Emma Jo Fairlie, with help from student assistant Debbie Blaha. Team managers were John “ Bubba” Randles and Carrie Barker Roger said, “It was the most successful season Prairie Girls’ Track has ever had.” It was a great way for Coach Stigers to end his career at Prairie.

Boys’ Track Ends Another Good The track team this year was something Prairie could be proud of. They won several meets and placed high in most of the others. There were two major relays that Prairie won — the Grinnell and the Vinton. Leading the pack was senior Ron Downs. He broke some of the old school records and, with the aid of his teammates, earned several honors for the school. The highlight of the year, though, was the Drake Relays in Des Moines. Prairie placed fourth. Ron Downs placed fifth in the hundred meter run. The relay team of Brad Wicher, DeWayne Heintz, Tim Fairley,and Ron Downs also did well. The Drake Relays are a very prestigious event and Coach Leeper was very pleased that some Prairie students went. "It’s an honor,” he said. "You have to qualify and meet all the requirements. It’s quite special. The relays are one of the best in the U.S. and we’re proud to be in them.” "The boys’ track team had a very good year,” said Mr. Leeper. "Not super, but pretty good. Better than last year.” Far Above: BOYS’ TRACK TEAM, Front Row: Sc: Appleget,Tim Fairlie,Doug Ockenfels, Dan Denn: Brad Wicher, Clark Humble, Ron Downs, Sc: Buresh, Mitch Porter.

Sciences Provide Experiences The Science Department members, John Osland — mann — biology, William Rieniets — chemistry and physics, and Tom Hofflife science, provided many exciting experiences for their classes this year. Science, Society, and the Future was a new course offered this year. Students learn what future societies could be like and what new developments are happening to better our future. It offers students a chance to explore these areas of science that affect our society. In other courses, like biology, the students once again picked over the frogs and got writer ' s cramp from taking notes. John Osland kept students busy and watched the girls squeam over the dissection of frogs. Biology offers a wide variety of areas to be studied during the year. Some are the human body, dissection for internal organ studies, and genetics. Life Science took on a new look t\ year. Tom Hoffmann took over the teac ing position when Carol Uphoff we back to school. The Life Science cour offers students an alternative to takii Biology. The main emphasis is on teac ing students about living processes ai how they affect our environment. Chemistry and Physics with Bill Rie iets allowed the students to really expe ment. Both classes let the students < experiments to prove theories and sh( physical laws of science. Members of the Physics class, aloi with students from Electricity and Cc sumer Economics, took a trip to Chicai again this year. The trip allowed studer to tour the Museum of Science ar Industry, the Field Museum, Planet; ium, and aquarium. Students we cells, allowed to explore areas of their interes and were exposed to new areas of s ence. A high point for Physics students this year was the annual trip to Chicago.

Different themes for the script are suggested in September, and the whole choir votes on which one should be used. Next, a committee of students start writing the script. The script is sort of written around the songs that are chosen, but the writers also came up with a good plot this year. The writers don’t have to be choir members, but can be anyone interested in the project. Susan Marak, Debbie Ashbacher, Darren Bogner, Matthew Clothier, and Scott Boots wrote the script for “Camp Pirahna." About three weeks before the show, All the actors in the tryouts are held. show must be choir members, since Coffeehouse is a sort of jazzed-up choir concert. It isn’t until only two weeks before the show that rehearsals and set work start. A lot of work is done in that short time, since the other plays at Prairie have four to eight weeks for rehearsals and set construction. Because there is only a short time to put the show together, the whole choir has to pitch in and help build set, round up props, and make sure they're on stage at the right time. The musical, the well -known “Fiddler on the Roof," was held in the high school gymnasium, on March 14 and 15. Musical is a different type of production than Coffeehouse. The cast is not limited to choir members. Anyone can try out, but it helps if the person is able to sing. Tryouts are in mid-January, and rehearsals start the next week. There are about eight weeks of rehearsals before the show, so there’s more time to get things ready, and the show is better performed than Coffeehouse. crews, band, and especially the directors, all did a fantastic job with “Fiddler on the Roof." It was really a very wonderful show.

Davis Wins Third Crown Barry Davis became Prairie’s first three-time state wrestling champion as Prairie picked up its second runner-up title in three years. Prairie had been favored to repeat as titlists, but all in all, it was a very successful tournament for first year coach Jim Kimball. The tournament was set up differently than it had been in previous years. This year’s tournament included “ wrestlebacks.” When a wrestler goes to the finals, the wrestlers he beats wrestle each other and the guys the other finalist beats. In this way, a wrestler who was beaten in the first round can wrestle all the way up to third place. If the tournament had been set up in the old way, Prairie probably would have won. Far Above:.

We are Thespians — Not Thesbians What is this strange organization that exists in Prairie High School? When Mr. Jennings used to read the morning announcements, sometimes I’ d hear something about a Thesbian meeting. What kind ofa group is that? First of all, the name of the group is Thespians, and is constantly mispronounced by people who don’t know its meaning. Thespis was a man who lived So, as in the times of ancient Greece, and he is considered to be the first actor. you may guess, Thespians is the name of an international honorary drama organization. It’s likea drama version of girls or boys letter club. In order to become a member, a person has to earn 10 points. Each point represents 10 hours of work in at least two areas of the theatre. Work in at least two of the areas of costumes, props, set, acting, makeup, lights, sound, or orchestra is needed for earning Thespian membership. At least five points must be earned at the school where the person is to be inducted, but points can also be earned by working in the junior high and the Community Theatre. Once a person becomes a Thespian, they can continue to earn more than the required 10 points. Each extra 10 points beyond that earns a gold star, and those who earn 60 points receive an honor bar. The Thespian troupe is basically just an honorary organization, and doesn 't have many activities. were a few fundraisers held. Members of the Thespian troupe and the Drama Club sold stationery, magazines, and ran concession stands at different sports events. This money was raised to pay for Thespian supplies, and to help pay for Thespian trips and a backdrop for the stage. There weren 't any trips taken, but in past years the Thespians have gone to the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, so it’s possible there will be such a trip next year. Besides raising money, some of the Thespian members acted as hosts for members of the Don Redlich dance company, from New York. spent a day at P.H. S. The company in February, and was sponsored by the Cedar Rapids Community School District. The big event of the Thespian year was the induction of its new members, which occurred near the end of the year. Before the induction, the new members were informed of their honor very early in the morning, in the comfort of their own beds. The old Thespians went to the homes of each of the new members, woke them up, and brought them back to school for a pancake breakfast. The pancakes were cooked in the home ec room by other old Thespians. However, there The name of our other drama group! a little easier to pronounce.

A good thing for both groups was t new costume room. The room where c tumes for the plays were stored used| be in a partitioned- off part of Mr.Schepl elberg’ s classroom, room 36.

Ron James, Prairie’s very successful coach, moved on to Oregon, leaving Jim Kimball in his place. Jim had been assistant coach, and became head coach for the 1979-1980 season. Coach Kimball commented that the difference between being assistant coach and head coach was that now the responsibility rests with him. He feels his team did the best they possibly could and that he couldn’t have asked for anything more from them. Jim feels he must keep an open mind, and that every year he coaches will help him to do a better job. When asked what he was proud of this year, the coach mentioned an undefeated dual meet record of 11-0, winning district, and finishing second in the state. He felt the team improved all season long.
