Aside from being a top citizen and good friend in our community, we are proud to have had you on our school board for the past eleven years. Through those years you have served in the varying offices of clerk, treasurer, and president. Howproud we were when a citizen of 32 years in Ada, rc- ceived the keys for our new school and made the acceptance speech at the dedication in the fall of 1954. Our only hope is that in the future each of us might put ourtalents to use for the community in which we live, that we shall never forget what has been done for us by you. Yes, we, and all the students at Ada High School say thank you for being our example of an outstanding citizen.

Yes, forty-four of us have struggled our way to what you might call the crest of the mountain. Now we will be on our own to find our way down the other side and up and over hundreds of others in our life time. Through these years at Ada High we can all recall a flood of our happiest and most thrilling moments that we have had together. We spent our first three years of high school in old Ada High. With the sadness of leaving it came the excitement of starting as Sophomores in the new high school. Our Sophomore year was one that probably was filled with more exciting and thrilling moments than any we had ever had. Then came a big year for us as Juniors. It was a year filled with firsts for us: our first Sadie Hawkins Day at school and our first class play. Probably our biggest achievement as Juniors was the Prom and Banquet we gave. The gym was gaily decorated to the theme of Southem Gardens . All the long hard hours of work we put into it were quickly cast aside the night of the Prom when the flowers, cotton trees, and pools made the evening almost enchanting. We were the first to crown a Prom Queen at our prom. Now at last we have become Seniors and the things we have enjoyed together are almost too numerous to mention. We leamed a lot about Social this year but I think we leamed even more about ourselves and the successes ofthe failures we had become through these twelve years of school. These are years we will somedaylook back upon and in recalling them, they will make us young and carefree once again. But when you look back, may you smile and not shed a tear.

V . 'jr' 'ti 5, R-ffl Theluniorclass this year lived up tothe theme of the l95'7 annual, for this year we learned to work hand in hand . We started off the year by winning first prize on our Homecoming float, a green and brown beauty with ROAST THE FALCONS as our theme. This was the second time our class was to have this honor. As the year progressed we began to think of ways to raise money for our Prom and Banquet. First of all, we held a school dance after the winter band concert. Our next party for the school was held after the sub-district championship game and many schools were invited. Our bake sale was a big success, for which we were all very happy. Like all Juniors in the past we had our traditional class play. Our play was entitled MOTHER WAS A FRESHMANN and proved quite good. The laughter and excitement of our class play is something none of us shall ever forget. Our Banquet and Prom were held the night of May 18. The whirl of new net formals and dashing new suits made it a night of magic for all of us. When the evening was over, we were all glad that our work throughout the yearhad not been in vain. Asluniors we would like to extend our thanks to Mrs. Vigness and Mr. Sitta, our advisors, who were always willing to lend a helping hand. Of course, we are looking forward to our year as Seniors, but we shall never forget our Class Officers: Jim MCCIS-nk, TISHS-, Barbara Klllg, Junior year, when hand in hand we climbed the ladder to the end of a successful year.

A new member was added after Christmas, so the total rose to a new high of forty-two members! We were a very industrious class and we provided a huge bonfire for the Viking's Home- coming. It was a lot of work, but on the eve of Homecoming, we were all very proud of our big and bright bonfire. Fishing for Victory was our floattheme for the Homecoming parade. In the spring, we decorated the gymnasium for Baccalaureate Services. Our class also took an active part in many of thc various school activities. We had two members on the Debate squad, four in Thespians, four participating in one-act plays, a large number taking declamation and many members in the high school band. Besides this, many of the boys in the Sophomore class took a very active part in the school athletic program. We had no class parties throughout the year, but we did have one big class celebration on the last day of school. Patterning our trip after those of many Sophomore classes before us, we spent our last day of school at Detroit Lakes where we went boating, swimming fit was coldlj, shopping, playing tennis and just plain loafing. Everyone enjoyed the trip immensely. We feel we owe a great deal of gratitude and thanks to our two advisors, Mr. Ruoff and Mr. McMullen, who supervised our activities throughout the year. 5 1 I -V TC ,.

The class of 1960 started their Freshman year with an unusual number of thirty-eight boys and twenty-two girls. For the first time in our whole school career, we were given the privilege of choosing a few of our subjects. The choice was between home economics, general business, in- dustrial arts, or agriculture. Our other subjects are English, science, algebra and physical edu- cation. Nearly half of the members of our class are members of band. Most of the basketball B team members are Freshmen. They won eleven games and lost only eight. We think they did a pretty good job! We are also proud to say that three of the B team cheerleaders are from our class. During our Freshman year we held two class parties, both in the spring of the year. One of the parties was held in the old school gymnasium and the other was in the form of a trip to Fargo at the end of the year. In Fargo, we all enjoyed ourselves while shopping, attending a show and having a real good time not doing much of anything but laughing and seeing the town. We were invited to most of the high school parties and certainly enjoyed them very much. Freshman C ass ROW 1: J. Perry, H. Stene, W. Cade, L. Jamison, A. Ellingson, C. Thorson,A.Wilkens,C. Yost, J.

We chose our class colors, which were pink and navy. i Many people spent a lot of time and effort on our float this year. Our slogan was: BROIL THE FALCONS. We were quite proud of it when we received third place. It was a pleasure to attend the crowning of Queen Deanna Habeck and to join in the snake dance. To end the evening we had a pep fest and a bonfire which was very enjoyable. Q In the magazine drive the class's hard work was rewarded by coming out ahead of all the other classes. Dwight Strand as president and Dale Simonson, secretary did a very good job of keeping track of our money. Many of the class members received prizes, among them Jan Simpson, an elephant, Roger Klask received 35. Wayne Brant a blanket, and Brenda Bodding a toy, stuffed dog. Dale Oanes was the highest magazine seller of the school and received quite a handful of prizes. On Sadie Hawkins day the whole school dressed up in costumes. We all appreciated and enjoyed the Sadie Hawkins party. A prize was given for the funniest looking girl's and boy's costume. Dean Simonson won the boy's prize. The class enjoyed the football games and basketball games and are looking forward to becoming Freshmen in Senior High. in O E N G d e Dwight Strand, Pres., Eileen Williams, Treas., Gray- don Bell, Vice-Pres., Dale Simonson, Sec'y.

The school year of 1956-1957 found sixty-five seventh graders entering the new school forthe first time. Miss Efteland and Mr. Christianson, our class advisors, told us t.he general routine of the school day. The first few days there was a state of confusion and bewilder- ment among the seventh graders. Miss Efteland was kept busy finding lost seventh graders, opening stuck lockers and remembering forgotten locker combinations. The first social ev ent of the year was Homecoming. We enjoyed the snake dance and bonfire very much. The overwhelming project facing the seventh graders was the con- stnrction ofafloat for the Homecoming parade. But with the combined efforts of the wil- ling workers together with the assistance of Mr. Christianson, a float depicting the defeat of Fertile was built. To the great satisfaction of the seventh graders the float won the second prize of 36.00. After the parade the seventh graders went to the game and last of all the Homecoming party, which we enjoyed very much. On Sadie I-lawkin's day, the class came to school dressed in Dog Patch Style! Daisy Mae's and L'il Abners roamed the halls. Dog Patch schooling was in style that day, too- little or no learning-but lots of fun! In the evening the Sadie Hawkin's party was held. Seventh grade girls took advantage of the Sadie I-lawkin's tradition and escorted their favorite seventh grade boys to the party. On Halloween the Ada P.T.A, sponsored a party for all the students. The purpose of the partywas to eliminate the door to door tricks and treating . The seventh grade attended the party somewhat reluctantly, but as the evening progressed the spirit of fun took over and the party was a huge success. The seventh grade is divided into two sections. One section included band members andthe other non-band members. Allband members belong to the Junior band and several belonged to the A band also. A large number of the seventh graders also belonged to the junior choir, which is under the direction of Mr. Christiansen. Seventh Grade ROW 1: Qleft to rightj M. Stadum, F. Brommenschenkel, M.

The Viking Log staffconsists of members of the shorthand and book- keeping classes. The Juniors issue their first edition around Christmas time. At this time the Seniors get a rest until May when they edit their last paper in the form of class history, prophecy and etc. The experience of writing and stenciling articles is of great value to those who enter the business field in later life. Thus the school pa- per has a twofold purpose. It keeps the student body informed on all activities and prepares the staff for journalism. It is a great responsibility for the editors and principal staff mem- bers, but they are rewarded for their work with a feeling of accom- plishment. The Senior editor was Betty Pierce, assisted by Glenda Wickgthe Art editor was Kay Nelson. Typists and Reporters were Car- olyn Eggen, Donna Finch, Gloria Prussia, Carol Gorze and Ellen Lun- don with Robert Miller doing the mimeographing. M arilyn Elling- worth, assisted by Gayle Hennen, was the Junior editor for the 1956- '57 school year. Janice Marsten very ably served as Art editor and Veldonna Moe, Beverly Berg, Janice Benesh, Bonnie Sargeant, Pauline Riepe, Harriet Gilbertson and Darlene Westcott did the reporting and typing. Ronnie Ness supplied the sports news as well as doing the mimeographing.

Jack Kitchell was elected president through anall-school election and Wayne Hasz and Marianne Murphy were chosen vice-president and sec- retary-treasurer, respectively, by their fellow Student Council mem- bers. We began Homecoming preparations immediately and we sold the football badges to the student body. A new black velveteen robe was made and paid for by the student council for the Homecoming Queen and the old crown was recovered. Every coxmcil member worked hard to make the occasion the success it was. On Wednesday, October 31, ten of us attended the Student Council Convention for the Western Division at the Moorhead State Coll e ge campus. After that, we found ourselves in the midst of book-cover selling, a Sadie Hawkins party on November 16, the sending of 510.00 to CARE for Hungarianrefugees and a Christmas assembly program and decorations. During the holiday season, we co-sponsored a Snowball with the Drum and Bugle Corps, and later sponsored a party after a basketball game with Gary. We met twice with the Crookston Student Council to plan the Stu- dent Council Convention for next year. All in all, we spent a busy, educational, and we feel, very successful year.

During the past year, the Ada Chapter of the PFA has shown its interests in the county fair, the winter shows at Crookston. grain sanitation program, crops judging, dairy judging, and general livestock judging. Dining the winter shows at Crookston in February, the Crops Team was entered in the District 1 FFA contest and placed first. Kenneth Strand was the third highest individual in the contest. The team mem- bers included Kenneth Strand, Russell Steen, and Gerald Williams. Then the Crops Team judged at the Little International put on by the students of the North Dakota Agriculture College in Fargo. Because of their win in Crookston, the Crops Team judged at the state contest representing the District 1 FFA. On April 24, the Dairy and General Livestock Judging Teams of the Ada FFA judged in the District 1 FFA contest at the A.C. in Crookston. The Dairy Team composed of Gerald Visser, Larry Lelm and Rich- ardVisser, won the top honors at the contest, enabling them to judge at the state contest in St. Paul. While the Dairy Team was judging, the General Livestock Tearn was also winning the right to com- pete in the state contest. This team, consisting of David Volkerding, Larry l-lellerud and Gordon deVries, came in second intheir contest. In the Dairy contest, Richard Visser was the third highest judge in the con- test and Gordon deVries was second in the General Livestock contest. The Parent-Son Banquet of 1957 was a big success. Members of the tea ms, exhibitors at the shows and the membersofmanyof the committees gave reports. The speaker of the night was O. C. Soine of the Northwest School of Agriculture at Crookston. Mr. Soine gave a most interesting talk about the progress found in agriculture. 1957 has been a most successful year for the Ada Chapter as the wins have been big, the projects en- larged and profitable, and the leaming at the top of it alll Future Farmers of America ROW 1, Qleft to rightj: Gordon deVries, Gerald Sorenson, John Volkerding, Edwin Sorenson, Warren Skare, Jerry Hanson, Lawrence Nelson, Charles Braunschweig, John Kitchell, Ronald Mikkelson, Robert Williams, Richard Visser, David Volkerding, ROW 2: Mr. McMahon, ad- visor, Larry Hellerud, Delmar Brueshoff, Gerald Williams, Wayne Hasz, Kenneth Strand, Larry Lelm, John Blasey, Russell Steen, Gerald Vis- ser, Joe Blasey, Gerald Kirchmeier.

Any Senior who has such an interest may join the local group. The purpose of the group is two-fold. 1. To interest young people in the teaching profession as a career and 2., to help those who have decided to go into the field to learn more a- bout the work of a teacher. FTA members are given the chance to student teach in the grade school or help the high school, but because of the tight schedule ofmost of the members, it has been difficulttowork in any student tea ching. Only two or three meetings were held this year as the organization is new, but the group was fortunate enough to attend a work-shop at Moorhead State College.

Music Festival Winners The 1956-57 year found the choirs busy as usual. The work was well rewarded when Music Festival time rolled around. Superiors were received by Lavem Woltjer for his tenor solo, the Girl's Sextette for Lift Thine Eyes from the Elijah and by the Girl's Glee Club for Hear My Prayer . Carol Landsverk re- ceived an A for her piano solo, so these four groups went on to the Region-State, held at Thief River Falls, Mi . nnesota During the year the choir made quite a few performances, the first being the Fall Band and Choir Concert . Singing over KXJB television at Christmas time was a highlight the choir members won't soon for et. gThe Christmas and Spring concerts this year were full of variety. The Christmas Concert featured colored slides with each number telling the sacred Christmas story. The theme for the Spring Concert was Spring is the Time . This was the first formal concert held by the choir. The stage was arrayed with grass, flowers, and picket fences, and the colored lighting affects made the theme complete. Singing at Baccalaureate brings to a close the choir year, but the songs and the memories of this year will always be with us. Mr. Christianson, whose skill di- rected usthrough a successful year.

With only three wins and seventeen losses during the season, prospects for tournament play were dim. The boys were determined, though, and even after we lost our first South Sub-District game to Halstad by 15 points, they promised us more playing spirit. They certainly succeeded, for they beat Gary and Hendrum by nearly 20 point margins in the other two games to give Ada the 3rd place in our Sub-District. Although we lost our very first game to Fosston in the District Tournament, we were all pretty proud of our team and the glory they brought to our school through determination and falr play!

The first team was Marianne Murphy and Judy Menge, Negative, and Mary Jo Storslee and Myrtle Ann Blasey, Affirmative. Betsy Nelson and Marilyn Scott fNeg.j and Paul Gunderson and Merlyn Stene QA ff.j made up the second team. The third team was Barbara Nelson and Betty Sanders QNeg.j and Betty Hanson and David Anderson QA ff.j . We were all learninga lotabout 900f0 of parity and the farm problem when we were invited to various tournaments. Wetraveled to Moorhead and Thief River Falls for two toumatnents and attended a debate session at MSC. Besides these, we also debated the teams of nearby towns many times. In the Regional contest, we came in third, following Halstad and Thief River Falls. It wasn't a great disappointment, though, for the teams debated were all tough and we still were entitled to participate in the state tourney. At the state, our four main debaters made a fine showing, giving us tenth place out of seventeen participating schools. We were proud that we beat the regional winners, Halstad, in our state competition, winning two out of six debates, while they won none! It was a tough year, but a profitable one.
