Griffel, Ralph Fear, Mrs. George Weber WA genuine interest and devotion to public education should be the first qualification of a school board member . . . A really good school board mem- ber is broadminded and open-minded. He is willing to give substantial blocks of time to discharge his responsibilities as a school board member. He is willing to give his devotion to a cause and a program of activities that is directed by someone other than himself, namely, the superintendent of schools. . . . A good school board member has a sense of humor and a capacity for human understanding . . . He knows that his interest in the welfare of school employees is one of the best ways to make sure that the employees are de- voted to the children . . . The good school board member likes people and sees many of them . . . He believes that the future welfare of the community is closely tied up with the success of the school system . . . He exercises a leadership that comes as near being unselfish as human beings can attain, for the promotion of public education means the furtherance of all social institutions in a democracy.N--Twenty-first Yearbook of American Association of School Administrators F l'UlTY , Rosa Engel--Junior-High Principal Don Stark Senior Hi h Princi al 6 "E: -- ' S P Wayne Pos--Superintendent Helen Rath--Business Education E.

A total of 66 girls joined the club this year, making it a very ac- tive organization. Some of the program topics were: Dating, Makeup, Music, Good Grooming, and International Y-Teens. Meetings were held twice a month. Many social activities are promoted by the Y-Teens. Again this year, the club sponsored a semi-formal dance, 'Frosted Fantasy' at the Legion Hall or December 22. The occasion was invitational--each girl bringing a guest. The annual Mother - Daughter Tea was held on May M. As a money-raising project this year, the girls sold personal stationery. The Y-Teens also participated in a Y. W. World Fellowship Drive and sent a gift to a foreign Y.W.C.A. On October 7, fifteen girls attended the annual fall conference held at Mason City. At this conference, Marjorie Weber was elected district secretary for the coming year. Also in October the Y-Teen homecoming float, 'An Old Woman in the Shoe,' received first prize. The Y-Teen financed and published the Argus,asem1-monthly school newspaper. Mary Lou Kahle was editor and Marjorie Sessler acted as business manager. The Argus appeared promptly at four o'c1ock every other Thursday and had a circu- lation of 200. -ff Future Farmers Back rows H. Burma V. Scallon E. Bevin F. K A. Abb B. nnrr V.

The Legion Hall was surely disguised with the snow all around the snowmen, the evergreens and little animals and the main centerpiece. Wasn't it fun working on that center decoration and trying to make that house stay together and appear as if it had electricity? Charlene Roth was crowned queen. Remember the punch? Something not so formal was our high school parties. Not many danced but we did have fun, aiamt ve? Especially doing the decoration! as seniors, we put on a Valentine's party.

Although the breaks went the wrong way, many thrills and indi- vidual stars highlighted the football season. The Raiders will be looking to next season, to many experienced veterans plus some promising prospects. Ackley lost its first football game to a big Hampton team. The score was 27-6. The second half was played on even terms, each team scoring once. R. Sietsema scored Ackley's touchdown. At the League Jamboree the Raiders defeated the Reinbeck Rams, 7-6. Siet- sema reeled off a long run which was the highlight of the game. Ackley came off the field with a victory over the West Waterloo Sophs. The scoring credit goes to Scallon, Sietsema and Steffen for a 20-6 victory. Oppold DeBerg and Steffen were stars on defense. In an afternoon battle, Ackley defeated LaPcrte City by a score of 27-19. Knoll's 60-yard touchdown run was spectacular and Scallon scored twice. Playing their first conference game, the Raiders bowed to Traer, 13-O. Don Steffen played a whale of a game on defense. Beving was a standout in the line. Ackley's conference hopes were shattered by a determined Grundy eleven. They passed to a 19-O victory although Ackley outgained them on the ground. A large homecoming crowd saw the Raiders lose 19-O. The Raiders did every- thing to outbattle the Teachers High team in the second half, but their fu bles kept them on the scoreless side. Kearney intercepted a pass as the game ended. The Raiders lost a hard fought game to the Eldora Tigers by the score of 13-6. G. Sietsema scored for Ackley. Kearney, Muller, Sietsema, Steffen and DeBerg were tops for Ackley. The Ackley Raiders wound up their season with a 26-13 loss to Reinbeck. Long runs highlighted the game. Kearney's 80-yard touchdown came in the second quarter. G. Sie sema scored late in the game. 'G DARWIN WIARDA--L.T.--Big tackle . . . every game brought improvements.

Merlin Janssen, Glenn Boheman, Darrell Dass, Gene Scallon and Gordon Sietsema had the task of carrying the burden of Ackley's basketball season. Ackley played a lot of good ball for a young, inexperienced team. The lack of material proved to be the big factor in Ackley's unsuccessful season--one vic- tory and fourteen losses. Darrell Dass at 6' 3U was the tallest man on the squad. He favored pass- ing the ball instead of shooting, had a deadly long set shot for a center, and rebounded well under both baskets. His best game was against Eldora. Merlin Janssen was the blond forward who had lots of ability to score. His specialty of one hand push shots from far out helped Ackley along when the chips were down. Gene Scallon maintained a 7.2 point average for the season to lead all scorers. He proved himself a reliable ball handler who had plenty of speed to match. Glenn Boheman was the sophomore lad who was tough under both boards with his rebounding power. Glenn hit his scoring stride against La Porte City with a total of 18 points. Gordon Sietsema was the freshman guard who played like a veteran in every respect. His scoring punch and ball handling was a decisive factor at times when Ackley needed a boost. Keith Knoll proved to be a dependable substitute. His ball hawking and rebounding kept the Raiders rolling. lntra- urals This has been a real year for champions in the intra-mural sport program at Ackley High School. Students saw some good ball games and some potential ball players in the noon basketball league. The program has been designed for three basic reasons: C17 to promote good sportsmanship among players, C27 to provide entertainment for students during the noon hour and C33 to build up the physical strength of the players. took top honors with a 5-l record, bow- .
