In the fall of 1950 a group of nrnety bewrldered
but determrned people destmed to become the vtc
tors of 56 entered the hallowed htlls of old A H S
Eager to become a part of the school lrfe thrs class
fully partrcrpatedrnthe lCI1V1t1eS of the school and
many were among the fans thtt rooted the Eagles to
vrctory rn the state basketbrll tournament In the
sprrng the class earned the frrst of many trrumphs as
the class play Inslde a Krd s Head won the play
As e1ghth graders they held a tea dance the frrst
of therr socral affarrs and of course the students
managed to frnagle therr way out of many classes to
make prepzratron for thrs gala event
The freshmen class of 52 53 emerged as one of
the most promrsrngclasses rn the hrstory of Aberdeen
Hrgh School It was rn thrs year th1t the Wheels of
theyunror hrgh began to develop therr talents The
ranks of the athletrc teams were swelled by future
Eagle stars rn Gross Swann Lrndes and Clessuras
and rn Ross Reuyl Soth and Roebuck No one wrll
ever forget the hrghly successful freshman assembly
wrth Bob Lrndes as Dangerous Dan McGrew
Durrng thrs excrtrng year we moved to the new
hrgh school but the freshmen grrls were practrcally
stranded rn the confusron The eprsodes lll Mr But
krewrcz salgebra class wrll be cherrshed rn the mem
or1es of those who partook of them
When the freshmen gave therr frrst real Frrday
nrght dance they felt that at last they were an rnte
gral part of the sprrrt of A H S Thts was borne out
rn the second annual varrety show Bye Bye Baby
1n whrcha good representatron ofthe cl rss of 56 par
Thrs rllustrrous group then took the great step mto
senrorhrgh school As sophomores they brought wrth
them the get up and go that was to rnsure therr
prommence among the classes of Aberdeen Hrgh
Thrs year brought the class many new contacts and
experrences but when the novelty of berng sopho
mores wore off the students then realrzed that semor
hrgh drd have a lrttle work attached to rt And
too the class of 56 had begun to rnsure tts posrtron
rn the school especlally on the athletrc freld
It wrll be hard to forget the day that the sopho
mores went rnto mournrng for Gertrude the mascot
of the brology class The memorres of the class tmp
to Hershey Pennsylvanla the nrghts at the dlner the
labortous days rn Bernre sclass and the mrssrng pamt
brushes and frnger parnt jars strll lrnoer rn the mrnds
of the students
The Junror year was a year of memorres The
frrst annual Homecomtng was a terrrflc event and
mtny juntors were 1n the forefront rn makrng rt a
great success The varrety show On the College
Campus starr1ng Hap Stoller and Claudta Whrtsel
supported by many otherjunrors was one of Aberdeen
Hrgh s best performances One of the funnrest parts
ofthe varrety show however occurred not durrng the
show but rn the dress rehearsal when the costumes
of the grrl s krck chorus began to frnd therr way to
the stage floor
The football team showed themselves to be un
derestrmated by the sports wrrters when they closed
the season wrth a 6 2 record as they completed thetr
frrst wrnnrng season After tyrng the Bel Arr grrls
twrce the speedball team lost the trophy by a close
margrn A junror studded varstty basketbrll team
worked tts wayto the se mr frnals rn the state tourna
The cl rss realrzed how far they had progressed
toward the end of therr hrgh school educatron when
they recerved therr class rrngs rn March 1955
The crownrng glory of the Junvor year and therr
hrgh school years etme when they began to work on
the Junror Senror banquet and prom Wrsh rng to
make the proman unforgettable occasron the junrors
secretly scurrred about from gtrages to cellrrs to
lodge halls and even to the town dump to rnsure
that the lrttle detarls of decoratron would be taken
care of All thrs work proved to be of great worth
for Sprrngtrme ln Par1s wasthe mostbeautrful prom
ever seen at A H S
Wrth onlya few weeks left ln the school year and
the worrres and hard work of the prom rn the back
ground a mrschrevrous urge overtook the junrors rn
the form of the mysterrous drsappe trance of a flower
At the close of the year the Honor Socrety
c la 1 med Ross Reuyl V Gross Moroan Salmon
Kane Fabrrck Stoller Krrkpatrtck and Lrvezey as
the outstandmg members of the class Davrs Gross
and Hettre Reuyl were elected to head the S G A
and A A Judy Salmon and Ion Lrvezey to edrt the
BLUE AND GOLD and ARRIVEDERCI and hm Swann
was elected class presrdent
Today as semors the vrctors of 56 havrng con
quered many obstacles stand ready to face the great
estbattle ofall LIFE Trme wrll brrng many changes
to the members of thrs class but the memory of A
H S wtll remarn fresh rn therr mrnds forever
