East By CINDY LEFFLER East High Spirit is that all-important, intangible quality that invades the souls of most high school students. It includes enthusiasm, sportsmanship and school pride. - The first week of winter sports at East High was devoted to spreading spirit throughout the school in the fourth annual Spartan Spirit Week. The week included a heavy schedule of games and meets. The cagers met Southeast Monday, Lincoln High Friday and Omaha Central Saturday night. . The swimmers met Omaha Bryan Tuesday and Hastings Friday, and the wrestlers faced Columbus Tuesday and Southeast Friday. . To honor these athletes, senior pep club girls brought small gifts to each one during the week. Christmas stockings, Screaming Yellow Zonkers and decorated oranges were a few of the gifts.

(r U Teachers Turn 4Artv' What do teachers do after the final bell rings at 3:30? Some go to night school, some go home and correct papers and some work at various hobbies. Waverly teachers Kay Sedivy, Carolee Behrens, Sandra Butt, Melitta Antrim,. Judy Messersmith, Roxie Sullivan, Janet Shauman, Linda Tiedje, Ted Koperski, and Mary Lou Novak put their talent to work in the pottery room. Their occupations range from teaching science, English, home economics, or math to teaching second grade. However on one or two nights a week their main interest is art and all differences in their special fields are forgotten. Under the direction of Mrs. Evelyn Harris, who was instrumental in starting the art department at Waverly High, the teachers work at turning out clay pots of all types. Slab pots, coil pots, "flop" pots, and all methods of hand building are favorites with the teachers. Many are also beginning to learn how to "throw" a wheel pot. During the short time art has been offered at Waverly, the classes have grown from informal instruction after school to a full schedule of various art classes all day long. The cup is beginning to run over as 31 students were asked to rearrange their schedules this year because of over-sized enrolment in art. Mrs. Harris is also the sponsor of the newly formed Art Club. The club's activities include keeping past art students in touch and providing a way for them to enter the two t freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes began at Monday's pep rally with the class skits. The seniors were champs with their " 'Twas the Night Before Victory" skit. Key Club again sponsored the Key Club 500 tricycle race on Tuesday. The drivers raced their modified trikes around the halls in an exciting display .of skill and daring. Senior Dan Smith was the winner and recipient of the 1000 penny award. The final stage of spirit competition was completed Friday with the judging of class halls. Each class decorated a hall following its theme. The over-all winner of spirit week received the Spartan Spirit trophy at Friday's rally. Although this year's Spirit Week is over, our spirit hasn't been packed away like fragile Christmas ornaments to be used again at this time next year. This was only the beginning of an exciting and Spirited Spartan season. Operas at Fine Arts Center, 50th and Huntington'. Robert Barrett, Millard, is stage director for "The Telephone."

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Mrs. Harris went to Omaha as a member of an evaluation team. There she helped rate the facilities, staff and objectives of the Burke High School art department. Mrs. Harris feels that she can use some of their ideas to make improvements in Waverly's program. The art department is a relatively new course at Waverly, but with the enthusiasm shown by the students and the teachers, it should soon expand and gain more supporters, along the way.

Their visit was arranged by Mrs. Frances Stall, a fourth grade teacher. The trip was a homecoming for Wally Winter, who told his audience, "Seven years ago I went to school here." When the Huskers arrived they were greeted by some 270 youthful admirers decked out in red. Signs such as "Welcome Huskers" and "You're Number One, Nebraska" adorned the halls. The week before the visit the students worked making paper footballs, autograph books, and drawing football players. So many kids requested the Huskers' signatures that copies were run off and handed out. One teacher commented that the excitement and restlessness up until the. time the football players arrived was "worse than the last day of school." When the time finally came, the Huskers began their talk with the answer to a fourth-grader's question, "What is a quarterback?' Dan Schneiss, halfback, explained that a quarterback is "the guy who makes all the touchdowns' and "the smartest guy on the field." Wally Winter explained about sportsmanship. "We won at least three of our games because we didn't get mad and the other team did," he told them. "This is where it (sportsmanship) starts. Right down here in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades." "How do you feel when you're losing?' asked one small fan, referring to the Oklahoma game. "We don't really think about losing when we're out there playing," Winter replied. "We only think about winning.' "What's everybody doing on Jan. 1?' Jerry Tagge asked the group. "Watching you play on TV!' was the enthusiastic answer. Tagge went on to tell about the Astro Turf and showed the students the rubber-spiked Tin A BY HOLLY SPENCE The group that gained its greatest success as back-up band for the late Janis Joplin, Big Brother and the Holding Co., has come out with an album on its own, "Be A Brother." (Columbia C-30222). It seems to have slowed down its tempo a bit from the previously pulsating and screaming Joplin style to a blues-oriented collection of tunes. There are hints of country sounds in the group's debut solo album. "I'll Change Your Flat Tire, Merle," is a satirical approach to the traditional hickish chuckler. The former Joplin sidekicks are geared to the intellectual rock listener and produce some of their better sounds on "Keep On," "Joseph's Coat," "Mr. Natural" and "Heartache People." Outstanding Effort Stephen Stills has, up to this point, been part of a number of groups and combinations of groups. With the album "Stephen Stills" (Atlantic SD-7202), this talented performer and writer comes on with a solo debut and its looks like a musical success. ' Adding to the success of the album are the talents of such luminaries as David Crosby, Graham Nash, John Sebastian, Eric Clapton, Cass Elliott and the late Jimi Hendrlx. This outstanding effort is produced through a combination of Stills' somewhat harsh vocal sounds, his simple rhythmic compositions and introspective lyrics. The moods cf the tunes vary and the highlights of the album include the almost Cajun sound of "Black Queen," "Love the One You're With," "Do For the Others" and Stills' superb guitar work on "Go Back Home." shoes the linemen wear especially for the field. He also compared his quarterback helmet with that of offensive tackle, Wally Winter. ."Wally needs more protection," he explained. Winter continued with the next inquiry, "What game do you think was the toughest?" He considered Colorado the toughest team because the Buf f alos matched the Cornhuskers in size. "Do you think Nebraska will be number one at the end of the season?" "We sure hope so!" Winter exclaimed. Then he went on to the next question. "Jerry Tagge, can I kiss you?' he read. Tagge later read aloud the following pledge written for the guests by fifth-graders Barbara May and Abbey Maahs, "I pledge allegiance to the Cornhuskers of the United States of Nebraska. And to the team which has played, faithfully, independently, under rules, and undefeated for the United States of Nebraska." Another student asked Tagge if Coach Bob Devaney ever gets mad when the team doesn't play right. "Shouldn't say he gets mad," came the reply, "he does get a little disgusted." "Does he ever yell?" they asked. Schneiss answered by covering his ears. At Stock's request, Tagge talked about exercises. "Everyone hates to do exercises, but they're very important ... to build a good healthy body. Ad if you're healthy, you're happy." Schneiss told the group about the affect grades have on a football player's eligibility. He said a player must maintain a 1.8 (near C) average and if he doesn't, he sits on the bench until his work improves. Schneiss explained that this situation could hurt the whole team and stressed the importance of studying. At the end of their visit, the Huskers encountered a group of feminine fourth-graders on their way out to recess. The girls took advangage of the opportunity and before he was through, Jerry Tagge ended up kissing every girl in the fourth grade. " 1 J..,. gXr'-jit .. N 1 I i
