Blythe Cessna Vance, teacher

One of Ames' oldest living faculty members celebrated her 100th birthday a few weeks ago on April 27. She is Blythe Cessna Vance. She came to Ames in 1915 and taught 8th grade. She later married Dr. Thomas Vance, who for 42 years was Professor of Psychology at Iowa State. Four of their children graduated from Ames High. They are Gerry '32, Virginia Merrill '39, Paul '39, and Frank '49.

Two Lane Track Project

This summer I will be asking former Little Cyclone athletes to contribute to a second athletic department building project. Six years ago, with the cooperation of the Litde Cyclone football quarterback club, a mailing went out to fonner AHS football players asking for fmancial help to improve the football stadium facilities.

We received a great response and Jerry Carney, president of the Booster Club, organized the project. The project included pouring concrete on the sidelines, where the players usually stood in dirt or mud, and covering the concrete with Astro Turf. They also did the same for the track finishline area This greatly improved the appearance of the stadium

Our next project in the stadium will been add two lanes to our six-lane track. We are one of the few large high schools to have a six lane track - yet we have the largest track teams in the state - a last count, the girls program has 120 members and the boys have 90 athletes out for track. Those numbers create problems at practice, including safety concerns.

Obviously it is difficult to have large invitational meets with only six lanes, we have not been able to host a conference meet. When its our turn we have to take our workers and teams to Des Moines for the meet.

At this writing we are organizing a committee that will head up the track project. If you have been out for track you should be receiving a letter this summer asking for your financial support. I'll keep you updated in the next newsletter.
