Muriel Eckhoff, Myron Eidsmoe, Arline Gig- ler, Esther Gilsoul, Robert Gnadt, Janis Lar- son, Phyllis Pickering, Helen Schubkegel, Ro- bert Skalsky, Alta Stadum, Elaine Stennes, Esther Stennes, Elaine Thompson and Orleen Warne increased our number of the freshmen class to fifty. We were all kept one noon be- cause one member of the class whistled. We all gave out with our best whistles to help the teacher tell which one of us had committed the crime, but it remained unsolved. We were excited taking our new places in the senior assembly as sophomores. The new member in our sophomore class was Jesse. We built the bonfire that year and had a hard time but with Mr. Johnson's assistance and after scouring the country side and vicinity of Ada, we produced the particular edifice, and our bonfire proved to be one of the biggest and best ever. For baccalaureate service our class decorated the auditorium. Our annual class picnic was held at Twin Lakes. It was rather cold for swimming so we decided to have a wading party, but might just as well have gone swimming, for after engaging in a water fight we came out soaking wet anyhow. As juniors we won first prize for our float in the Homecoming parade. We showed our dramatic ability in our junior class play, "Mountain Mumps", which was a great suc- cess. A trophy of which we were very proud was won by our boys in the Inter-Class Bas- ketball Tournament. Anthony joined our class that year. We must not forget to mention that ours was the first class in recent years to have a prom following the Junior-Senior Banquet. Our decorations for commencement were con- sidered to have been very beautiful. We used great quantities of ferns, lilacs, plum and ap- ple blossoms. It was truly a bower of beauty. As thirty-one high and mighty seniors we are now drawing to the close of our story. Our senior year has truly been a memorable one. Our Homecoming Queen was Viola, and our float again won a prize for its beauty. In the spring we were entertained by the juniors at a banquet. In the past years our class has not had to take a "Back seat" in any of the follow- ing activities: band, choir, football, basketball, publications and dramatics. Our Annual has been the biggest undertaking in our senior year, and we are proud of it. 1. Bob, our class president, has a later model now. 2. Those knee pants, Dutch! 3. Sixth grade-We had a good idea some of us would finally get here. 4. Our Montana cow girl, Phyllis. 5. Muriel, you've still got those dimples. 6. "Baa". They can't pull the wool over your eyes, Orleen. 7. Scalp 'em, Margaret. 8. Vi and Bette, still dreaming? 9. Toot your horn, Lu. 10. Wipe that scrowl off, Leona. 11. What do you see, Elaine? 12. Vi, still a cyclone, huh: Who's the cute little girl with the dog? 13. Could it be Almira? ' 14 . Gerry whatta man! 15. Esther, still sweet and shy, 16. Our farmer lady, Bobby.
