With Randy Moench filling in as "Coach", there is a long list of lifters: Jon Bogaard, Bill Borland, Gene Crist, Terry Fit/gerald, Wayne Gronbach, Lynn Hagar, Roger Heiter, Jerry Jones, Lance Olson, Greg Obermann, Don Tripp n nd ftl"h Wyntl.

We .will never cease to be attiuaed at how he dotes'this. When not lifting, a lifter will sometimes skip rope. Because of his achievement at this station, Greg Obermann hits bwtfi voted ."Mr, Coordination." We compare "Obe's" skipping rope to that of a professional boxer. It's re'il exciting:t" V'T'.ch n hovnr do tricks while skipping. We get the same feeling when watching Obe try to reach his goal of skipping rope seven limes without stopping. The weight men feel the coming of track, Mike Stenslond has started his annual "running laps around the weight lifting room."

This is hard to believe—unlil one tries to give one away. Yes, each year Ihe counselors " in our high school publicize on Ihe bullelin board, Ihrough Ihe daily announcement, and Ihe newspaper, Ihe opporlunilies for financial aid lhal our seniors should be interested in. Yet, il is frequenlly late in the summer before recipients can be "found" who need this assistance. Why SQ little graduating senibrfi? My next comments are directed primarily to Ihe parents of our 1974 seniors. There are many fine and well-meaning cilizens and organizations of this community who have worked and saved to provide scholarships and loans to graduates of Humboldt High School. With the high cost of education it would pay each of you to look into these financial aids. Obviously, the qualifications will differ from one type of assistance to another. Usually some evidence of need is required. Also, having been accepted into a college or vocational school is in the applicant's favor and so are a verage-or-better grades. As parents, please confide in your senior sons and daughters if financial assistance is needed for furthering their education. Ask them to check with Havlik, senior counselor, about the local as well as other aids. You may want to place a call to the high school office yourself for information. While the final decisions are awarding the scholarships and loans are left to committees outside the school, application forms are usually available in the high school guidance department. Docs your graduating son or daughter need help in order to attend a college or vocational school next year? If so, don't wait for someone to look for him or her. Take the initiative and get in fronl of the line by calling the high school office. Mom and Dad may profit from this, loo. Delmar J. Cram, H.S.

Mary Hadar, John Riches, Deb Duffy News Editor Kurt Stoebe.Jack Dreyer Advisor 4..... ... Meredith Case Photographer ,',..' Randy Rezabek A new policy concerning student absenteeism is nearing completion an'd will soon be voted on," announced Karen Mickey, president of student senate. The new policy, if accepted, will allow a sludenl 10 absences per semester. If a senior missed more, his lale arrival-early dismissal privilege would be revoked. If a sophomore or junior missed more than 10 days, each additional day missed would require him to spend two days in quiet study hall during free periods. In addition, his case would be taken before a board composed of teachers and members of the administration, with the possibility of loss of credit. "This would be the exception to the rule," stated Miss Mickey. Finalization of the policy is being delayed by debate over which absences to count in a semester. Miss Mickey explained: i that', soipe schools t'ounlf-a' ddctdr'e^cused absence, while others do not.- Bond members prepare for contest The State Solo-Ensemble Conlesl sponsored by the Iowa High School Music Association will be held Saturday, April 6, at Eagle GroVe. Members of HHS band are preparing to participate in this contest. Presenting solos are Kris Mather, Diane Ernest, Brian Sexe, and Carolyn Bybee. A total of 14 ensembles will also compete at the contest. Girls shape up Girl's track season begins by Barb Perin SWEAT. . . Female bodies in tattered sweat pants and stylish, hooded sweatshirts will soon re-appear'as another girl's track season begins. Sweating, straining and enduring will be expected of those courageous enough to partake in this challenging sport. Grueling conditioning initiates the team to track. The weight machine at HHS eagerly awaits the arrival ot petite female bodies and viciously turns these figures into thick-thighed, muscular- calfed, broad shouldered physiques. Although it may seem that the girls are competing in a male-dominated area, they realize that they will not equal the boys' physical strength. After the Sneakers ore retired Banquet climaxes girls season by Nancy Wellen A recognition banquet brought the 1973-71 girls' basketball season to a formal climax Wednesday, March 6,' (>:.'!() p.m., in tin- hi^'h school cal'eiorium. Tin- banquet was held for both the ninth grade and the junior varsity learns, liolh finished successfully; the ninth tirade won five and lost Mike PotUsJj, representing Northwestern Bell, is ihown here demonstrating the helium-neon laser to Junes FiUps third period physics class. He visited the Friday, March 8, and talked to many three, and the junior varsity rallied in eight wins and only three losses. Tom Goodrich, the ninth grade coach, began I he- evening by summarizing the learns' play and awarding each member her certificate lor points towards a letter. He commented on the teams' good altitude and willingness to play ingi-ihi-r throughout the—season. Goodrich slated lhal much of their .strength came from the bench and many iiirls lhal came out. He sighted the team's determination, aggressiveness, and oserall talent as being key factors in iheir success. He concluded his talk by commending each girl's contribution to the team's success and commenting on the girls' future hopes. The junior varsity coach, John \Vicki-tl. proceeded by giving his junior varsity team members I heir certificates for points toward a letter. He also cited each girl's contribution to the team's success. Wickell slated that every girl who went oul contributed to the team even though not all of lhe girls saw a lot of action. He also noted their deter minim ion and team work through Ihe two-year program. He sighted this program as the enabling factor that improved the girls and brought them to a respective competitive level of basketball. Wickett ended by looking at next year's 18 game schedule as being tough, but he felt that the three-year program that the girls have been involved in, has brought them to varsity level compe- tition. The banquet was concluded by a pot luck dinner and the team member's presentation to I he coaches for their hard wo'rk and dedication that was the backbone of the Wild- rale-Ill's' successful sruson. The cheerleaders, managers, and trainers were also I hanked, along with Miss Bev Ulibey, I he girls' chaperone, and the parents of the Wildcaletles for their participation. TKAM SCOKKS Humholdl 1)9.

It is quite amusing to 'watch ' them struggle to reach, toes and hold up legs. Some try to skip exercising but soon find out that they are worth doing. Tight and cramped muscles don't tickle! Warm-up laps are also important. After running a few laps, most of them are ready to hit the showers but then find out.' that these'- exercises were only the beginning. Last, but certainly not least, comes the actual practice. It seems to last an eternity! Everyone hopes that the coaches .are in a sympathetic nibod.-but they have caught on to every trick in the book. The girls run the practices to their fullest capacity, most of the time (they're all human), but still hope that the practices aren't timed. Eyes may sometimes deceive the coaches but watches don't. Finally, when Ihe practice is over, the track team eagerly walks into the locker room. Admisi the Jokes, girl's track is to he taken seriously. The past reveals that it has been.

Data processing equipment subject of field trip Automated data processing equipment was the subject of a field trip to Fort Dodge Laboratories by the first period bookkeeping class Feb. 28, stated Douglas Lundberg, teacher. The class was guided through the Fort Dodge Laboratories data processing cenler by Eugene Curl, dala processing manager. Curl explained the operation of the firm's 1401 computer system and gave tips on education for the data processing job field. He also recommended that a studenl inleresled in data processing should Irain "al a good state school instead of a correspondence course." Some mechanical ability and an accounting education helps, Curl explained. Fort Dodge Laboratories is ' a producer of velerinary medicines, wilh over 40 salesmen and oullets throughout Ihe United Slales. Its data processing center uses an IBM M01 card system computer which can handle 40,000 bits of information at once. Curl stated that a newer computer system will soon be installed. Iowa State student Miss Karen Fagerhaug, student teacher of Bev Rubey's physical education classes, is presently teaching girls field hockey. Miss Fagerhaug will be at the high school for six weeks and at the junior high for six weeks as part of her training.—Review Photo. ha* ne ffiMee, fR« d*vdtfo« flfid' dedication* of ntat, year 1 * \ football mwibefsi lead to say, "Lbok out Clear Luke, Webster City, rind, town Palls, because we're lifting the extra pounds that are going to make the difference," pounds, to prepare id accomplish that goal each lifter has in the back- of his mind, whether they will'admit It or not.

On behalf of the HHS weight lifting team we'd like to thank the administration for allowing us to work ouv during free periods, ICCC helps area schools Engine mechanics, health aide, basic electronics and public services, four classes co-sponsored by Iowa Central Community -College, Fort Dodge, has enrolled 45 HHS seniors, stated Delmar Cram, principal. Classes are made up of students from six area schools: Eagle Grove, Gilmore City, Twin Rivers, Humboldt, and Barnum. Each student enrolled in ICCC receives a tuition of $220 from the board of education. Courses are one semester long and worth two high school credits. Each class period, is approximately three hours -long. ICCC's aim in sponsoring this program is to "help high school students in any way Ihey can," said Cram. The advanlage of this program is, "ils ability- to help provide courses that we otherwise couldn't have, because of the costs, such as space, equipment, and instructors," added Cra'm. ' ',. The most important thing at this point is to determine how many seniors next year will be taking the classes so tuilion can be appropriated for them, Cram pointed out. Dave Havlik, guidance counselor, added "The bid advantage as we see it is that it gives Ihe schools who are limited on their budgels the chance lo lake courses on a eooperalive basis." Dan Grause, a senior participating in the program, feels there is a need for more diversificalion of classes, on the basis of student ability. He added most sludents in the program seem to enjoy it. Juniors can enroll only if all places are not taken by seniors, concluded Cram. Student teacher in gym classes Miss Karen Fagerhaug. a student teacher for girl's physical educalion, will be leaching a unil on field hockey in Bev Rubey's gym classes. Miss Fagerhaug will teach and observe the high school six weeks, and the elementary six weeks. Miss Fagerhaug is majoring in physical education at Iowa Slate. Field hockey, volleyball, and sofl- ball are some of Ihe sports Miss Fagerhaug has participated in.
