STUDE T COUNCIL
. . . Each class sends two representatives and its presi-
dent to serve on the Student Council. David Pries is tne
president, Dick Ridout, vice president, and Linda Bear,
secretary. Miss Jacob is adviser.
. . . The Student Council had complete charge of the Home
coming festivities this year--initiation and the nomination
and voting for Homecoming Queen.
. , ,They improved their financial standing by operating a
check room at the basketball games and at other school
. . . When the decision was made to get new graduation
caps and gowns, the Student Council was asked to select
the color. They chose navy blue.
. . . To make the incoming Freshmen feel welcome, the
Student Council again held their annual spring party on the
last day of school.

ATIO AL HO OR SOCIETY
. . .Scholarship, Leadership, Character and Service are the four principles on which mem
bership in the society is based.
. . . To be eligible for membership, junior and senior students must rank in the top third
of their class. The integrity of the individual, his cheerful willingness to give of his time and
effort, and the responsibility he assumes in guiding others, are important qualities in the se-
lection of members.
. . . Members were elected at the close of the first semester and were installed on February
Z7 at a high school assembly. As is Cugtomary, gold pins and certificates were awarded the
new members by the Student Council.

ACKLEY 6 HAMPTON 13
Although Ackley outplayed their first opponent statistically, they couldn't put the ball over
the goal often enough to produce a win. They were neck and neck with the Bulldogs going into the
second half and Hampton had to pound out the yards with great difficulty, but they managed to
come out a touchdown ahead. The foremost player for the night was Nymeyer, who chalked up
123 yards in seventeen carries.
ACKLEY 7 LA PORTE CITY 20
The Raiders had an unfortunate night, Teachers barely kept them from an initial win. Al-
though Nymeyer was not able to play because of injuries, the fullback slot was well filled by Bill
Griffel who played one of his better games.
ACKLEY l3 T.C.H.S. l4
The first conference game, although played with plenty of fire, was lost to slightly stronger
opposition. Here again the Raiders outplayed their adversary statistically, but LaPorte somehow
came out on the long end. The sturdy backs punched out yardage with surprising regularity,
showing the fans the power of the Ackley line.
ACKLEY 19 JESUP l8
, With Guldager setting the pace on the first play from scrimmage, Ackley broke the ice and
wonuthejp first football game of the season. Although they were two touchdowns behind at one
timg Qifhe fourth quarter, they didn't give up. They punched out one touchdown after receiving
Qavpmlfand with only a short time left to play, Dick Kroll intercepted a pass and went 63 yards
for the winning TD.

out the contest D1ck Kroll w1ll vouch for th1s as he came out of the game w1th a broken leg
D1ck R1dout unl1mbered h1s pass1ng arm 1n thls game to ga1n l34 yards through the a1r
