Published by the Students of Carroll High School Vol. 23 Carroll, Iowa, Daily Times Herald, March 26, 1976 No. 26 Junior-Senior Prom Progress Shown "Nights on Broadway" was voted by the Junior Class to be the 1976 Jr.-Sr. Prom theme. Suggestions from members of the class were reviewed at a class meeting Wednesday, March 17 with Lynette Hansen and Pam Tenold presenting the winning idea. • Another decision made-at that meeting was naming sophomore prom servers. They are Holly Evans, Lisa Petersen, Jean Grettenberg, Brad Edwards, MikeSchaefer and Jeff DeBower. The date for the prom is set at April. 30 from 9:00 to 12:00 p.m. Committees are presently meeting to finalize plans and order materials to carry the theme idea in decorations, invitations and costumes. The prom Sports Scene Yes, it's that time again. Time for all runners to take their marks, get set for another rewarding season, and go to it. Spring has sprung and track has begun for the boys and girls of Carroll High, so you will be seeing those familiar orange-clad joggers plodding around. Coach George Lansink has three weeks to get the girls' squad ready for their first meet on April 6 at Sac City. Twenty-six prospects make up the field of this year's Tigerette team, with twelve returning letter winners to lead the way. Coach Bill Foval has the same amount of time to get his Tigers in condition for their first clash, which is also at Sac City on April 6. The boys' track roster boasts eleven returning lettermen and about thirty other track and field enthusiasts. With practice now in full swing, such comments as: "I like it better this year already" and "We're gonna be great!" give the impression that success is in store for Carroll High Track and Field. Good Luck! committee meets Thursday mornings at 7:30 a.m. and all interested juniors are welcome to attend. There will not be a dinner this year because there was no place available to hold it. Juniors have yet to decide whether they will have a Prom king and queen. The decoration committee held two meetings this week to determine orders that need to be made. They also began planning out definite decorations to be put in the gym. Plans are also being made for invitations and refreshments. The committees are as follows: Theme and Decorations — Chairmen: Lynette Hansen and Pam Tenold; Members: Jodi Hanke, Sue Skinner, Karen Bernholtz, Julie Schechinger, Janet Conrad and Michelle White.

The Carroll Television Translator (CTT) system was off the air for about two months after last March's ice storm caused the 450-foot tower to collapse. CTT receives very high frequency signals from Des Moines-Ames stations and retransmits them as ultra high frequency waves to Carroll television sets equipped to receive them. After the ice and wind brought the tower down in March, work started on erecting a new tower on the same site southeast of Carroll. Some stations were in use by May, but it was 1 not until the Times Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, March 26, 1976 8 middle of November that the CTT system was fully tuned. A new 350-foot tower was put up, but the system was not operational right away as the city officials who run CTT had to wait until the proper transmission lines arrived in Carroll. Electronic engineers were in Carroll in July taking field strength readings in preparation for tuning the antennae. Final tuning was completed in November. After that, many Carroll residents utilizing CTT had to have their antennae adjusted in order to receive top-flight reception. Home antennae should point toward the southeast to the CTT tower. The rebuilding of the tower cost just less than $41,000. CTT rebroadcasts programming from KCCI (channel 8), WHO (13) and KDIN (11), from Des Moines, and WOI (5), from Ames. The stations have 2,000-foot transmitting towers north of Des Moines. KDIN is part of the Iowa Educational Broadcasting Network, the rest are commercial stations. The television translator was built by a non-profit group, Carroll Area Television, Inc., after a • fund-raising campaign was started in 1960. The first tower was 400 feet, but was later increased to 450 feet. The first full-time broadcasts came from the system in early 1961. Carroll later took over the system, levying a tax for its maintenance. The system is managed by a commission appointed by the city council and headed by City Manager Arthur Gute.
