Mr. Otto Kolb
We, the 1957 Annual Staff, are dedicating this annual to
you, Mr. Kolb. 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.

well, here we are Seniors and no matter how distant it once seemed graduation has arrived. 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.

become Mrs. Allen Christopherson.

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

The Sophomore class began the 1956-l95'7 school year with forty-one students. 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.

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.

At the beginning of our second year in junior high school, the eighth grade had an en- '
rollment of fifty-two members. 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.

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.

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

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

The twelve members of the Student Council, elected by their class-
mates in each grade, held their first meeting on September 14, 1956.
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-
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.

The Future Farmers of America is an organization of boys interested in the future of farming in the
United States. 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
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

The Future Homemakers ofAmerica is one of
the most worth-while organizations for girls in
high school. It teaches them many important
ideas which will be used by them and to their
advantage in their. later life. They realize that
to be a good wife and mother takes just as much
training as any other "profession" and they are
preparing for this life in an excellent way.

The Future Teachers of America organization is set up in
our school for Seniors interested in the profession of teaching.
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

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,
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
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.

The Ada Vikings Basketball Team lived up to past records
and, after a rather unsuccessful year, rocketed their way to
eligibility for the District 330 Tournaments. 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 Senior class play, "Beauty and the Beef" was presented November
2, 1956. The story is about a young girl, Ginny, played by Harriet Slin-
inger, who wants to keep it unlmomm in their new home town that she was
once one of the leading participants in a "brain" Quiz Kid program. To-
gether with Franny, played by Marianne Murphy, she tries to show Beef
QKenny Strandj and the others that she isn't really so smart. They succeed
in their plan and eventually help their home team to win the biggest foot-
ball game of the season! Her understanding parents, Mary Jo Storslee and
David Volkerding, and her kid brother, Mike Ruch, try to help her, but
somehow jlst make matters worse. It has a happy ending, though, with
Ginny and Beef together and Franny and Foggy QRobert Miller, together,
too! Mrs. Faragher was the capable director of this hilarious play.

Debate Team Has Successful Year
The Debate squad of 1956-1957 had a very busy and successful year. After preliminary inter-
squad debates, the teams were chosen. 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
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.

On May 1, 1957, a lovely Banquet and formal Initiation
were held in conjunction with the Speech class. Over 100
parents, Thespians and initiates attended the banquet and fol-
lowing the initiation and installation of new officers, a short
program, in which the new Thespians had a chance to prove
to the audience they were worthy of the name "Thespian",

troupe, producing many fine talents.
