TO: THE STUDENTS OF ADNA HIGH SCHOOL
The activities of the Adna High School Student Body for the 1952-53
year were many and important. In my report to you, students of Adna
High School, I want to give you a. complete picture of what your student
body, your student council, and your student body officers have done
throughout the school year.
The first school-wide activity was the sponsorship of the annual maga-
zine subscription sale. Before the sale was started, it was voted that the
profits from this effort would be used for the purchase of ten additional
band uniforms. This campaign netted nearly S300 for the band uniform
fund. The new uniforms were ordered and shortly received, bringing the
total number of band uniforms up to thirty-six.
The next important item of the year was the purchase of additional
athletic equipment for the girls' athletic departmeent. Several bats and
balls were purchased for exclusive use by the girls.
In a student body meeting it was decided that the baseball field should
be repaired and resurfaced. Gene Givens was placed at the head of the
committee and the project was brought to a successful conclusion under
his chairmanship. On behalf of the Adna High School Student Body, I
would like to thank Mr. Henry Duey, and the Lewis County Department
of Roads, for their assistance in the resurfacing of the baseball field.
In the third student body meeting of the year a number of important
items were discussed and acted upon. It was noted that approximately
S200 should be spent annually for the purchase of additional football
equipment. A committee was then appointed to order needed items for
next year. At the same meeting, the following items of business were
also acted upon: C13 A portable phonograph was authorized and ordered
for the drill team. 125 Rain equipment and a drum. majorette baton were
authorized and ordered for the band. C39 Senior baseball team members
will hereafter receive their baseball hats.
Your student council, separate from the student body, took action on
the following items: C19 The erection of goal posts for the football field.
121 The sending of a delegation to the University of Washington Leaders'
Conference. C35 The authorization of funds to pay for the band's entry,
fee at the Southwestern Washington music festival. C43 Repair of the base-
ball backstops. C51 The purchase of a service plaque which will be kept up
to date in the future. -
Financially speaking, your student body is on a sound basis. The
athletic contests and the other fund raising activities have kept the stu-
dent body fund in good standing. '
On behalf of the student body officers, and the student council, I wish
to thank the Student Body for its loyal support throughout the year. It has
been a pleasure serving you.

GRADE SCHOOL I
In the history of the world, a span, of twelve years is but a grain of
sand in the vast desert of time, but to us, the class of 1953, the last twelve
years has represented a great and long period of our lives.
As all historians must, I will begin at the very beginning. On Septem-
ber 1, 1950, our group met for the first time. The class numbered 21
boys and 10 girls. As I recall, Miss Clanfield was our first teacher.
The eight years that were to follow our entry into school were rela-
tively uneventful. As we progressed from grade to grade, some of the
original group left and fell by the wayside . . . other new faces joined
We are especially grateful and appreciative of our grade school teach-
ers. We were fortunate to study under the following: Miss Clanfield, first
grade, Miss Johnson, second grade, Mrs. Nielson, third grade, Miss De-
Priest, fourth grade, Miss DePriest, fifth grade, Mr. Eastman, sixth
grade, Mrs. Leonard, seventh grade, and Mrs. Simmermacher, eighth
As I look back, the event that stands out mo-st clearly in my Grade
School memories is the great Earthquake of 1949. As we were in the
eighth grade, and were about to complete our grade school education, the
school we had known was destroyed, but out of the ruins grew an even
better grade school building. A
FRESHMAN YEAR : .
Of us, the 1950 edition of the Adonian said "a group of eighteen ex-
cited pupils began the long journey of four years of high school on Septem-
ver 6th, 19493' That was correct, we were excited. The same annual also
said of us, "and then there are the Freshmen, who don't know anything
. . . and know they don't know anything". We recognized the fact, as
the Adonian so candidly stated, that we didn't know anything, but after
all, tha.t was our reason for being in high school.
Our class officers were chosen with care: Charlene Thompson was
our President, Darlene Holmes, Vice-President, Rita Hobbs, Secretary,
Marvin Duncan, Representative, Vernon John, Sergeant-at-Arms, and
Alice Orloske, Reporter. Mr. Jones guided and advised our group through-
out the year.
As we began our Sophomore year, we were still excited, or so the 1951
Adonian said. In our class picture we looked a little bit more dignified and
perhaps a little more educated. The members of our class assumed import-
ant roles in school activities and we were well represented in athletics,
band and drill team.
The main event of our Sophomore year was the Freshmen initiation.
We handled the job very ably. The Freshmen were considerably annoyed
and the crowd pleased. After the initiation the Freshmen thought highly
enough of us to give us a return dance and party.
The class officers for the year were:
Vernon John .................................. ......... 1 ..... P resident
Marvin Duncan ............................ ....... V ice-President
Louise Duey ............. ............... S ecreta1'y
Alice Orloske .............. ...... R epresentative
Charlene Thompson ....... ..... S gt. at Arms
Sondra Sherman ......... ............. R eporter
In the 1951 Annual, we closed our class history with the statement,
"We look forward to two more glorious years of education and fun at
A.H.S." That statement, though brief, pretty well summed our out-look
at that time.
JUNIOR YEAR :
In the fall of 1951 we were full fledged upperclassmen, Juniors to be
exact. The class numbered fourteen members. With a great amount of
enthusiasm, we launched our first Junior activity, the Prom. To the theme
of "Blue Moon", we danced and congratulated ourselves upon sponsoring
such a fine Junior Prom.
On March 7, 1952, wepresented "Hillbilly Courtship", a three-act
comedy which was directed by Mr. Donald Gibbs, our class adviser. This
dramatic effort was well received, and it left us with a feeling of self
satisfaction on having turned in a "job well done". '
The following officers represented us for the year:
Marvin Duncan ..,.....................,.........................,. President
Max Santee ....... .... ..,. V i ce-President
Alice Orloske ....... ............. S ecretary
Leon Craig .........,..........................,................. Sgt. at Arms
Vernon John ................,.,..,.,........................ Representative
The 1952 Adonian said of us, "Junior Privateers-faithful crew for
three full years." Yes, we had been faithful crew members.
As we embarked upon our Senior year, we began to realize how short
four years of high school actually can be. We were anxious to complete
our education, but still there was a slight reluctance to leave Adna High
In true Senior style, we were the leaders of all school activities. The
boys of the class were the stars of Adna's athletic team-s, and the girls
were indispensa.ble members of other school activities. Marvin Duncan
led the student body as S. B. President, Gene Givens was Vice-President
and Charlene Thompson served as S. B. Secretary. Also, Charlene Thomp-
son was Girls' League President, while Vernon John acted as "A" Club
President. Six class members held important chairs in the band and three
of the girls, Alice Orloske, Louise Duey and Charlene Thompson, were
members of the 1953 drill team.
"This Ghost Business," was the title of our Senior Play. It was ably
directed by Mr. Robinson, and well received by the many people who saw it.
On May 1, our group visited Seattle. In addition to being an educa-
tional trip, it was very enjoyable. Then on May 8th our class sponsored
the annual home-coming ball. This turned out to be one of the highlights
of the school year. ,
At Commencement, sixteen students received diplomas and the class
of 1953 became history.
A not to rosy future faces our class, but it will not dampen our spirts-
For the boys, military service looms in the immediate future-For the
girls and boys, a World of uncertain stability. But as the Adonian said
of us as Freshmen, "We face the future excitedly, but with confidence".

Gene Givens, President of the Class of '53 cautiously entered the
inner office of Madam Prognosticator, world famous fortune teller and
crystal ball gazer. As he seated himself, he looked about the dimly lit
room. The drapes, made of a rich looking oriental cloth, were tightly
drawn. The floor was covered with equally rich looking oriental carpeting.
The only furnishings were three modest chairs and a small table which
stood in the center of the room. The room's only light eminated from an
odd looking lamp which stood in the far end of the room. Gene could
plainly smell the fragrant aroma of oriental incense.
He felt a bit nervous and apprenhensive. In the pit of his stomach
there was a cold spot. After all, it isn't every day that a person gets the
opportunity to see into the future of his classmates, and perhaps himself.
As he waited, he recalled his earlier visit with the great Madam. It had
been exactly one week before, on the eve of his graduation from Adna High
School. At that time he put the proposition squarely to her, would she,
Madam Prognosticator, foretell the future of the entire graduating class
of 1953. The Madam had hesitated because of the large group involved.
As she said, "I generally foretell only the future events of a single person's
life." At the time she had insisted that this feat would require special
concentration and mystic powers on her part. Gene recalled her exact
words: "After all Mr. Givens, even I, the great Prognosticator, will have to
exercise every trick known to the science of fortune telling and prognosti-
cation to come up with the futures of such an unusual group as the Class
Gene had left a complete list of the class with a few background re-
marks about each member. The Madam had requested this list in order
that she might concentrate on them individually before she attempted to
foretell their futures.
As the great Madam entered the room, Gene jumped to his feet and
muttered a word of greeting. With a casual wave of her hand, she
motioned him to his seat and then seated herself directly across from him.
On the table she placed her famous crystal ball. A blinding brillance
'eminated from the spherical piece of glass. For a brief moment Gene had
the urge to get the devil out of there . . . just then the Madam spoke:
"Mr, Givens, what I see in the future of your classmates, and yourself,
interests me a great deal. Since your visit here last week, I have concen-
trated on each member individually. As you requested, I shall attempt to
predict what your classmates will be doing in the year 1973. In some
instances, I shall tell you what will happen to them between now and tha.t
date. Mr. Givens, the information I am about to give to you is to be kept
in the strictest confidence."
The great Madam touched a button on the table and the lamp in the
corner of the room went out. The only light in the room then was the
Weird blue-green light given off by the crystal ball. She then put her
hands over the crystal and after a brief moment removed them. Gazing
into the ball, she began to speak:
"First, I see a tall well, dressed man, with beautiful even teeth. He is
president of the board of directors of a large candy manufacturing firm.
Ah . . . the vision becomes clearer, he is president of the. Life Saver Cor-
poration of America. He is just receiving notification that he was chosen
one of the ten best dressed men in America for the year 1973. Now the
name is becoming clear, Fred . . . Fred . . . Hub . . . Hub . . . Ah, now
1 have it, Fred Huber. Around this man I see many beautiful women, all
striving for his attentions. He is considered a very eligible bachelor by
New York mothers who wish their daughters to marry well. Now the
vision becomes dim. I can see no more . . . such a pity, I have become
very fascinated with this young man.
"Mr. Givens, I see that you have been taking notes on what I have
been saying. Why? . . . You must remember that none of this conversa-
tion is ever to be repeated to human ears. If you should repeat one single
word of what I am telling you, I shall dedica.te the remainder of my days
to weaving an evil spell over your life."
Gene- answered hesitantly, "Oh no Madam., I am only writing down a
few notes so I will never forget what you are saying. You see, Madam, I
am cursed with a disgustingly short memory."
"Very well Mr. Givens, we shall continue.: "I now have a vision of a
great New Orleans night club. The establishment has a rather unusual
name, it seems that is is 'The Playquato'. The owner and his wife are
having an early dinner of crab louie and stewed pigeon eggs. Their names
are not very clear. Ah . . . now my eyes see more clearly. The lady, a
very beautiful person, is an ex New York cosmetics model. Nationally
famous for her rosy complexion, her picture is familiar to every woman in
America, as the girl on the 'Rosy Cheeks, no smudge, no smear make up'
advertisement-s. You must know who she is by now, yes . . . the ex Louise
Duey. Her husband is now speaking to her. He is a light complected man
with boyish freckles. My what a beautiful picture these two make. Now
I have his name . . . it is Melvin Tennent. Mr. Tennent's night club, the
Playquato, is nationally known as a rendevous of millionaires and Holly-
wood celebrities. Mr. Tennent is now walking over to the soda bar and is
conversing with his bouncer, a Mr. Max Santee. As they talk, Mr. Santee
holds a sparkling glass of Pepsi in his hand. There seems to be some dis-
cussion over salary. Max Santee is saying, 'But Boss, surely you can raise
my salary from one case to two cases of Pepsi a week. And besides, Boss,
don't I do your laundry and caddy for you when you play golf?' The dis-
cussion must not ha.ve ended to Mr. Santee's satifaction for he gulped the
remainder of his glass of Pepsi down, and stomped out of the club. I can
tell you no more about these three people Mr. Givens, my eyes can see,
110 IIIIOFG . . .
Madam Prognosticator passed her hand across her forehead as though
she mi-ght have a headache due to mental strain. After taking a sip from a
glass of water, she again spoke: "In my crystal ball, I now see a young
soldier standing before the President of the United States. He is receiv-
ing his second Congressional Medal of Honor. This young man, Vernon
John, is the first American to ever receive this honor twice. My next
vision of this young man is many years later and he is behind prison walls.
Now don't be alarmed Mr. Givens, Vernon John does not become a criminal.
My vision tells me that he is now Warden of the Washington State Peni-
tentary at Walla Walla. He is nationally known for his progressive penal
program. In the same prison, I see another of your classmates. He is
one of the guards. Among the prisoners, he is known as 'Wild Bill'. Of all
the guards in prison, he is the most feared and respected. Guard Mattis
is in charge of the prison bookkeeping department, and in his spare time
also teaches double entr'y bookkeeping to the inmates. '
"My vision is of a fashionable beauty salon in Chehalis. The owner
and proprietor is none other than your classmate, Rita Hobbs. Rita, still
unmarried, is considered one of the most original hair stylists in the coun-
try. Her innovations on the 'horse tail' and 'poodle' are copied even by
Hollywood hair stylists. She apparently prefers her career to a married
life because she has several constant suitors, one of which is an old flame
who owns one of the better Chehalis eating establishments.
"The next of your classmates to appear in my crystal ball is a famous
Hollywood newspaper columnist. She also has a thirty minute daily pro-
gram over a coast to coast television hook-up. Her Hollywood stories and
gossip are eagerly awaited by fifty million movie fans in America. and
Canada. Unfortunately, she is having a great deal of difficulty with law
suits. On the average of four or five times a year, she is sued by irate
Hollywood celebraties who received treatment in her news column or on
her TV program. Oh well, it matters little for she is extremely rich and
can afford any number of law suits. Now her name is clear to me . . . It
is Alice Orloske. Oh yes, she is happily married to a member of the Adna
Highi School graduating class of 1956. His name escapes me, but I can
tell you tha.t he is tall and blond. Oh, now I have his first name, it is Bob.
But I can tell you no more.
"Mr, Givens, the post-graduation activities of several of your class-
mates will be difficult to foretell. One such person is Charlene Thompson.
It seems that she will lead a varied life. I first see her as a surgical nurse
at the Mayo Brothers Clinic in Rochester. Later my crystal shows her
in a uniform . . . Yes, it is the uniform of the Women's Army Corps. My
next vision of her is rather confusing. She seems to be a policewoman of
some type. Ah yes . . . that's it, she is announcer-patrolwoman on the
State Highway Department program 'Could This Be You'. My crystal
tells me that she will marry an extremely rich man. It seems that she
meets this man through her job as announcer-patrolwoan of 'Could This
Be You'. She apparently ap-prehends him as he is speeding down the high-
way at 90 miles per hour. It must be a case of love at first sight. As my
vision dims, he is promising her that he will never drive faster than 30
miles per hour.
"I now see a large prosperous dairy farm in the Chehalis Valley. The
owner seems to be a robust individual of medium height. His name is
clear, it is Donald Thomas. He is extremely wealthy, having made his
fortune selling grade 'A' milk. At the moment he is having a little diffi-
culty with two brothers who are in his employment. It seems that he
worked for these two men many years before. Mr. Thomas i-s also a promi-
nent community leader, chairman of the school board and a member of the
Darigold Board of Directors. He is now using vile language on those two
employees of his, so I must end the vision.
"Speaking of Adna School, one of your classmates is, in 1973, Superin-
tendent of your Alma-mater. He is a very well thought of educator and
member of the Adna community. Perhaps you can gue-ss his name . . .
yes, it's Marvin Duncan. In my vision, I see Superintendent Duncan
lecturing several of his students who played hookey to attend 'John Deere
Day'. On his teaching staff, he has another of your classmates, Carol
Roberts. She replaced Mr. Weber as shorthand and music teacher."
At this point, Gene hastely interrupted t'he Madam: "What the blazes
happens to old Weber anyway? I'd sure give a lot to know what the
future has in store for him."
"That I cannot tell you Mr. Givens. He is not a member of your class,
or connected closely with your group. I can only tell you that he will be
replaced by Miss Roberts. You might be interested in knowing that under
her directorship the A.H.S. band will win first place in the Washington
State High School band meet in the year 1973.
"I now see a prominent Littell business man. Of course you wouldn't
know, but the small community of Littell will become a thriving little town.
Oil will be discovered in the middle of Leon Craig's front yard. My vision
tells me that Leon Craig has just been elected Mayor of Littell. His de-
feated opponent is a person familiar to you, a Mr. Robert Eastman. Leon's
sister, Arlene Potter, is now a resident of Washington, D. C. Her husband
is stationed there on Navy duty in the Pentagon.
"Now, Mr. Givens, I finally will attempt to foretell your future. Are
you sure you wish to hear what is in store for you? This may be good,
and it may be unpleasant."
After some hesitation, Gene finally spoke up: "Yes, Madam Prognosti-
cator, go ahead and give it to me. It can't be too bad. I've always been a
good boy and don't plan anything different for the future."
With that, the Madam again gazed into her crystal ball and spoke:
"First, I see you as a concert pianist. Your music is well received until
one night as you are playing Bethoven's Fifth Sympony you completely
forget the third movement. That seems to be the end of your career as
a concert pianist. But just a moment, I now see you as a professional base-
ball player. Yes, that's it. You are playing for the New York Giants. But
once again a cloud comes across your future. It seems that in the 9th
inning of the crucial Giant-Yankee world series game, you field a hard hit
ball and then put in in your pocket and walk off the field. Apparently you
forget what to do with it. Oh my, this part of the vision I must omit, those
baseball managers are such vile men. Ah . . . now I see you in a different
occupation. You are chief bookkeeper-accountant for the World Bank of
New York City. There seems to be some sort of confusion around your
desk. The chief auditor for the bank is with you and you are arguing
about debits and credits. Everything is so confused Mr. Givens that per-
haps I better discontinue our interview."
Gene, visably shaken, wiped his brow and said: "That's O.K. Madam,
don't tell me any more about my future. I can't stand much more. Say,
before you leave Madam, could you tell me something about our class ad-
viser, Mr. James Robinson ?"
"Well, since he is your class adviser, perhaps I can come up with
something concernin-g his future. Ah yes, yes, now I can see his future
too. He finally has a championship basketball team. But he is no longer
a high school coach. It seems that he now is head coach for the Boston
Celtics. He seems perfectly happy and contented in his job. Always has
a smile on his face when a game is over . . . My, he seems to be such a
nice man, he surely deserves this success. It seems that somewhere in
his past he had some unpleasant experiences with basketball."
The Madam rose and shook hands with Gene. "Mr. Givens, I will
mail you my statement. Thank you for your attention. I must caution
you once again, do not repeat one word of wfhat has been said here. If you
ever do, you will be eternally sorry. Now I must bid you good afternoon."
After she had left the room, Gene walked slowly out into the bright
sunlight and got into his car. He sat there a moment, then started the
car. As he pulled away from he curb, he muttered to himself: "Now what
in the blazes did she say about repeating this information. This darn
memory of mine is going to get me in trouble some day."
Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night,
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, rin-g in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him gog
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring out the grief that says the mind,
For those that here we see no moreg
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.
Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strifeg
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners purer laws.
Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the tirnesg
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.
Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civil slander and the spite,
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.
Ring out old shapes of foul di-seaseg
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold,
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand:
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

Throughout the 1952-53 school year, the activity calendar for the
Junior Class was full. The classes' extra-school activities were started
with a halloween movie party. After the show, the group met at Moor-
heads for refreshments.
The Junior Prom, always a high spot in school activities, was unusual-
ly successful this year. It is safe to say that the prom was thoroughly
enjoyed by all.
On November 10th the members of the class received their long
awaited class rings. The rings were purchased from the Josten Jewelry
Comp-any of Owa.tonna, Wisconsin.
The traditional school Christmas assembly was turned into a riot of
laughs as the class presented its version of what happens in a department
store during the Christmas rush.
The acting genius of the Junior Class was carried even further in its
presentation of the three-act comedy, "Beanes For Breakfast". This fast-
moving, hilarious comedy turned out to be one of the best presented school
plays of recent years. CFor the complete story of this event see the Junior
Class Pla.y page of this annual.J
Following tradition, the members of the Class decorated the audi-
torium both for the Baccalaureate and the Graduation exercises. It mi-ght
be noted that they showed exceptionally fine taste in their decorative
The closing event on the class activity calendar was the spring class
picnic. This annual get-to-gether was thoroughly enjoyed by each mem-
ber of the class.
Mr. Thomas Morris acted as class adviser and director of the play.
Class officers for the year were as follows:
President .......................................... ...... B ob Fay
Vice-President ....... ......... R ay Wink
Secretary ............,,,, ............ E valyn Ozar
Representative .,....,,., ..,, K athryn Carroll
Sergeant of Arms ........ .,.,., X firgil Rayton

The Sop-homores, the largest class in high school, were still going
strong as they finished the half way mark of their high school education.
The class, made up of twelve girls and sixteen boys, played an ever
increasing role in school activities. Every member of the class was active
in one or more of the school extra curricular activities. Moreover, many
of the individual Sophomores were leaders in the various activities.
The class did a very thorough job of initiating the Frosh in the fall.
If you doubt that, ask one of the Freshmen. Later in the year, they were
given a return party by the Freshmen.
Throughout the year, the following served as class officers:
President .........,......,..,..........,,........,.,..,........ Jim Stafford

Mr. Weber served as Class Adviser.

Twenty-three students, no greener than the run-of-the-mill Frosh,
made up this year's Freshman class. Perhaps they were a little spell-bound
by the thought of being in high school, but otherwise, they were pretty
much at home in a day or two.
Looking over the class, the upper-classmen saw a couple of new faces:
Nancy Hein, a transfer student from Elgin, Oregon, and Helen Thayer
from Centralia. The class was slightly smaller than last year's green-
horns, but still they were a relatively large class by Adna standards, num-
On September 5th, the group met and chose class officers for the re-
mainder of the year:
Errol Anderson ........ ........... P resident
Bernice Mohoric ..... ..... V ice-President
Beverly N owlen ........ ................. S ecretary
Lois Orloske .......... ............. .... ,.,...,. R e p resentative
Robert Chandler .........,,,.......,....,...,.....,.,....,.... Sgt. at Arms
The members of the class of '56 took a real going over on initiation
day, but they came through with flying colors. Once they had initiation
under their belts, they were full-fledged Pirates of Adna High School.
Members of the class played important roles in a number of school
activities. Lois Orlo-ske and Bernice Mohoric led the Adna High School
cheering section. A number of class members were important members
of the high school band and glee club. The boys showed that they will
be future stars of Adna's football, basketball and baseball teams. Sum-
ming it up, the class was very active in extra curricular activities.
At the annual school Christmas program the class gave a little skit
depicting the various teachers in their youth. This little bit of dramatic
activity demonstrated that the class possesses a great deal of comic talent
and a sense of humor.
The class gave a very successful Frosh Return dance on March 27th.
Their decorative scheme was highly original and beautiful. Delicious
refreshment-s were served at the intermission of the dance. The Sopho-
mores were really entertained.
At the close of the year, the class had its annual spring picnic. A won-
derful time was had by all, even though a few came home with sore backs
and arms from playing softball.
Mr. Nelson acted as class adviser.

The class of '53 had a unique talent for dramatics. In their junior
year they gave the howling success, "Hillbilly Courtship", and then this
year, they topped that with their rendition of "This Ghost Business".
Their natural flare for comedy, plus the excellent direction of Mr.
Robinson combined to create dramatic productions not soon to be forgotten
"This Ghost Business" was the hilarious story of what happens when
two young men land their wivesl buy a summer home with a slightly
haunted background. Of course, we all know that ghosts don't really
exist, but on the night of November 27th, the people watching the play
were wondering whether ghosts were a reality or not.
Charlene Thompson, as "Magnolia" the colored maid, kept the audi-
ence in stitches. Marvin Duncan and Melvin Tennant, as the two young
men who purcha.sed "Weary Rest", were excellent . . . Alice Orloske and
Louise Duey, as their wives, provided just the right comic feminine touch.
The three villains, Gene Givens, Carol Roberts and Arlene Potter, pro-
vided a generous portion of mystery. Vernon John and Leon Craig, as the
friendly undertaker-s, were great, and Bill Mattis played the part of a
tramp in a most convincing manner. The final comic climac was provided
by Don Thomas who played the part of "Mose", the jilted admirer of
Oh yes, Rita Hobbs turned in an excellent portrayal of "Marie", the
Don Thomas, Fred Huber and Max Santee managed the stage prob-
lems of the play. Fred Huber acted as business manager, advertising agent
and ticket distribution agent. Fred's manner of handling these jobs was
better than excellent.

"BEl-lNES FUR BREAKFAST"
"Beanes For Breakfast" is classified as a comedy and comical it was
under the skillfull interpretation of the class of '5-4. The central theme Ie-
volved around the a.bility of a little White lie to grow into a tattle-tale
Mrs. Worthington Kent and her school chum, Mrs. Beane, ably por-
trayed by Bev Kerrigan and Barbara Haase respectively, started the snow-
ball rolling when each tried to out-do the other in letters full of joys of
wealth and priceless possessions. The situation reached the unhappy
climax when Mrs. Beane decided to visit her friend thus putting Mrs. Kent
in the 'hectic position of having to make good all her bragging. The rescue
was undertaken by Mrs. Kent's children, realistically played by Wendell
DeBoer and Kathryn Carroll, who borrowed the necessary priceless pos-
sessions. Mrs. Kent was saved by being allowed to live on borrowed fur-
nishings which turned out to be only borrowed time.
Mr-s. Beane, her husband, Ray Bocheg her son, David Siegworth, and
her daughter, Marilyn Smith, were received in style by the Kent family
and their housekeeper, Gertie Gallop, played by Janice Tramm. Things
seemed to proceed with a reasonable amount of calm until the untimely
arrival of Uncle Podger, done by Virgil Rayton. This hillbilly relative
managed to completely undo whatever control Mrs. Kent had over the situ-
ation, with the end result tha.t both ladies confessed their duplicity, leav-
ing the way open for a happy ending. Sharon Deeds, Gordon Young and Bob
Fay took advantage of the situation and were able to resume their respec-
tive romances with the children of the two older and wiser school chums.
Lena Skoff, Anna Hein, Dan Olson, Addison DeBoer and Ray Wink
added to the entire plot in no small way, making the comedy a complete
Tribute must also go to Norman Adolphsen, Evelyn Ozar, Clara Marth,
Ray Wink, John Norman, Calvin Coie, Dan Glson and LeRoy Wisner, who
did the ever present and always important backstage work without which
a play could not go on.
The production was very ably directed by Mr. Thomas Morris.

MUSIC BY MASTERS
The band started the 1952-53 year with a rosy outlook. The new
uniforms had arrived during the summer months, and all members of the
group were anxious to show them off. The first chance came at the Annual
Rotary Football Jamboree. The AHS band made students and alumni of
Adna High mighty proud that night.
During the half-time intermission of all home football games, the band
marched and formed letters. This being something new at home football
games, it was greatly enjoyed by all spectators. .
Since the band was growing by leaps and bounds, it become necessary
to purchase more uniforms. The money was raised by selling magazines.
Ten additional uniforms were ordered and received, bringing the total
number of uniforms up to thirty-six. Later in the spring, the Student
Body generously appropriated funds to purchase complete rain equipment
to protect the new uniforms.
Members of the band felt that they established some sort of record by
playing for every home football and basketball game throughout the year.
The band generally played between games as the drill team marched at
half-time of the main game. This arrangement worked out very well.
At Christmas time, the AHS band played on the "Basketfiller Pro-
gram" over KELA. They also performed in the school Christmas pro-
gram, and later at a P.T.A. meeting.
In co-operation with the Kiwanis Club, they sponsored a spring con-
cert and amateur show. This was a chance for the band to show what
they could do with concert music. They turned in a wonderful performance
The big event of the year was their participation in the Puyallup
Valley Daffodil Festival. This being a nationally advertised festival, it
was a very important activity for the band. After a great deal of march-
ing practice, they came through with flying colors. The baton twirlers,
Connie Conrad, Lois Orloske, Yvonne Unterwegner and the drum major-
ette, Kathryn Carroll, turned in wonderful performances. Their instruc-
tor, Miss Carrolyn Langford, did a first class job of getting them ready for
April 25th, at Winlock, the band participated in the Southwest Wash-
ington class "D" and "C" music festival. Once again the AHS band up-
held the name of the school by turning in a first class performance. Six
members were chosen to participate in the honor student mass band which
performed at the conclusion of the festival. They were: Joyce Waltar,
Jackie Young, JoAnn Balsey, Irene Bowers, Gene Givens and Mable Grim.
The band closed out the year by performing at Parents' Reception and
the Graduation Exercises.
The Adna High School band will continue to grow and improve. Next
year will be one of the group's best year s. It is estimated that the march-
ing unit will number thirty-six regular members and the concert unit will
number about forty members. A great deal of work is still to be done,
but with the spirit manifested by the individual band members this year,
nothing will stop the Adna High School Band from becoming the best
high school band in Lewis county.

iAt the start of the year, the Girls' Glee Club changed from two part
to three part harmony. This change Was made possible due to the fact
that the club was larger than in previous years.
As in past years, the glee club participated in such events as P.T.A.
programs, Christmas programs, the spring concert, Grange programs, Par-
ents' Reception, Baccalaureate and Commencement.
Clara Marth, as usual, did a marvelous job of accompanying the club.
Also, Kathryn Carroll kept the music library in excellent shape. P
The Glee Club can look forward to an even better year for 1953-54.
With several good voices coming from Junior High School, it is expected
that the clubwill have even better sections next year. A
The music department is under the direction of Mr. Earl Weber.

Eighteen times the "Blue and Gold" went to press during the 1952-53
school year. More than once it seemed that dead-lines would be missed,
but always the crew managed to get the paper out on tim-e.
As Editor In Chief, Charlene Thompson turned in a remarkable job-
the type of paper turned out under her editorship set a high goal for which
future editors can work. Her two assistants, Louise Duey and Alice Or-
loske, ran their departments, Grade School News and Features, in an ex-
Several Junior and Sophomore girls held key positions on the staff.
Kathryn Carroll as Sports Editor and feature writer was an indispensable
member. Likewise, Barbara Haase as Art Editor and Janice Tramm as
page "two" supervisor were important staff members. Special recognition
must go to Joyce Waltar who served as feature writer throughout the year.
Her stories were always well written and interesting. Mable Grim, who
assisted Barbara Haase in the art department, turned in a good job for
Edition number eleven was "thrown together" by the boys of the
Senior Class: Marvin Duncan, Vernon John, Gene Givens, Melvin Tennant,
Leon Crain, Fred Huber, Bill Mattis and Don Thomas. The boys surprised
many "Blue and Gold" readers by their well organized and written paper.
Th-e final CSeniorJ edition of "Blue and Gold" was capably handled by
the Junior and Sophomore members of the staff. The fact that the paper
will be in good hands next year was evident by the manner in which they
organized, wrote and printed the last edition of the 1952-53 "Blue and

Adna high school is mighty proud of its industrial education depart-
ment Cshopj. During the past years, shop has become a very important
part of the Adna school curriculum.
A total of seventy-four boys and girls from both grade school and high
school took shop at Adna. The projects they build are surpassed only by
factory manufactured furniture. Un many cases, manufactured furniture
can't hold a candle to some of the better shop projects.J
This year approximately 32,000.00 was spent on various types of hard-
woods. ' Approximately 250 projects were completed throughout the year.
CMost of them were displayed at Parents, repectionj 1
The use of all modern power .tools and methods is taught, and it is safe
to say that Adna's shop is one of the most complete to be found-in any
Allshop classes are under the excellent and experienced direction of
Mr. Walter Roundtree. '

The annual staff and the class of '53 sincerely hope that
you will enjoy this edition of the Adonian. In the prepara-
tion of this volumn, our one and only thought has been that
you, our readers, should enjoy every page.
Yes, We have made some mistakes, but we hope that you
will overlook them. Perhaps our errors will be guide-posts
for future Adonian staffs.
This annual was entirely photographed, printed and
bound in Lewis county. We believe that no other school
annual can make a similar claim. The photography was very
ably handled by the Evernden Studio of Centralia. The annual
itself was printed, engraved and bound by the Chehalis Advo-
cate. On behalf of the staff, I should like to thank Mr. W. R.
Ingraham, publisher of the Chehalis Advocate, for his Won-
derful co-operation throughout all phases of preparing this
This book was financed by the sale of advertising space,
the sale of candy during the school noon hours, and by the
sale of the annual itself.
We wish to thank all those students who contributed per-
sonal photograprhs, and all those students who in any way
helped with the publication of this volume.

The 1952-53 drill team had an exceptionally busy year. At the be-
ginning of the basketball season, thirty girls turned out for grueling work
under the eagle eye of Mr. Roundtree.
Before the first drill, the team was cut to twenty-two girls. There
were sixteen regulars, three majorettes, and the leader. The majorettes
were as follows: Yvonne Unterwegner, Carol Hopper and Connie Conrad.
These three girls did a fine job of twirling and executing their outstanding
Throughout the season Kathryn Carrol did an outstanding job of
leading the drill team.
For each visiting league school and the Alumni, the team performed a
different drill. Many of which were composed of intricate formations. One
such outstanding formation was as follows: Using blue-covered flash-
lights, it produced the effect of a revolving star. This particular drill was
well received by the attending public.
Throughout the season the team performed at the Boistfort, Pe Ell,
Napavine, Toutle Lake, Rochester and the Alumni games.
The outfits worn by the drill team members consisted of Gold sweaters
with- big A's, black kick-p-leat skirts, white collars and saddle oxfords.
The team put in many hours of solid marching to perfect each drill.
Their hard work was rewarded by very enthusiastic and appreciative audi-
ences. Over the years, the drill team has become a very important part
of home basketball games.

1952-53 was the first year a course in Home Economics was ever
offered to boys in Adna High School. What they learned about foods,
cookery, good grooming, house planning, and family relations should make
them better sons, brothers, and future husbands. Besides, many of them
found an interesting hobby and really enjoyed cooking. Who knows-
some of them may have been helped to choose a vocation in the line of
dietetics or cooking.
One of the most worth while and satisfying activities of the class was
a luncheon which the boys served their mothers in February. Their
mothers agreed they served ardelicious luncheon in a very nice manner.
They also prepared and served the food for the parents' reception May
Here are comments from the boys themselves:
"Being one of nine boys who had courage enough to take a class in
boys' cooking, I wish to say that I have enjoyed the class very much. Now
that I am almost through it I wish I could continue it for another year.
"I think I could make some woman a good wife. I can cook, sew and
talk and that's about all one needs in order to be a good housewife."
Signed: John Bisquitmaker
"I think the Boys' Home Economics course is one of the most truly
instructive classes we have here at A.H.S. The basic principles of cooking
are taughtg also good grooming habits and other fundamentals which
wewill employ throughout our lives."
Signed Horace Eggburner A
"Home Economics is a very helpful and interesting course which I
have enjoyed very much. I have learned a great deal about cooking which
I know will help me later in life. My only regret is that I haven't more
time to spend on cooking." '
Signed Roger Potroaster
"Since I am planning to be a bachelor, I felt it was necessary to provide
myself with the necessary skills in order to be a good one. I've mastered
a few of the principales of preparing edible food along with a smattering
of good taste in clothes fand food naturallyj. My closing statement is:
It's a wonderful course, and it should definitely be continued."
Signed Earnest Potwasher
"I think that the Boys' Home Economics class of Adna High has been
educational. We have learned to cook various dishes, salads, etc. Cooking
was just a part of our year. We also learned how to darn sox and various
other techniques in clothing care. We also have had many activities dur-
ing the year. All in all I have enjoyed this class veryjmuchf'

The 1952 Pirate grid team was acknowledged by all members of the
Lewis county six-man football league as a tough team to beat. True to
Adna style, the boys were rough and tough. While they lost two lea.gue
games, there was only one team in the league that could be considered bet-
ter than the Pirates-that team was Wishkah. The Pirates also lost a
game to Oakville, but Adna's great backfield star, Vernon John, was side-
lined for the entire game with a knee injury,
Three of the starting six were Seniors, Vernon John, Marvin Duncan
and Don Thomas. Their contribution to the team was by no means small.
Of Vernon John, Coach Robinson said, "Vernon was a great high school
star, and a very definite college prospect." What more can be said of a
player? Marvin Duncan, who quarterbacked the squad, also earned high
praise from the coach, "Marvin's field generalship was the best Adna has
had in recent years. He was also one of the tea.m's best pass receivers."
The last, but by no means least, member of the Senior trio was Don
Thomas. Of him, Coach Robinson said, "Pound for pound, Don was one
of the toughest and best players I have ever seen. Don's brilliant defensive
game was a mainstay of the Adna defense. However, he was always
capable of grinding out needed yardage."
Summing it up, the three Senior boys on the squad will be greatly
missed next year. To them, the Adonian gives a salute, "A job well done
Of the under classmen, a number merit special recognition. In the
passing department, "Tiny" Smith was tops. His accurate arm was by
no means a small factor in the scoring ability of the squad. He will be a
team mainstay in future yea1's. Dan Olson and Errol Anderson turned in
top performances as pa-ss receivers. Ray Wink and Bob Johnson played
brilliant defensive ball throughout the season, and will continue to do so
next year. Addison LeBoer also was an always dependable ball carrier and
Of the entire team Coach Robinson said, "They demonstrated that
they had what it takes when the 'chips are down'. I received a great per-
sonal satisfaction working with such a group of fighting boys. I am sure
those who are with us next year will do equally as well."
At the annual "Centralia. Daily Chronicle" Lewis County football ban-
quet, Vernon John was named to the league all-stars team-it was a very
deserving honor for Vernon. Marvin Duncan received honorable mention.

Although the 1952-53 Pirate hoop team ended the season on the
deficite side, the boys played a brand of fighting ball that kept the gym
packed at every home game. Not only that, many of the Pirates' fans
traveled to nearly every away-from-home game to see their boys play.
The team was seriously handicapped by lack of height. Today, when
size is king on the basketball court, a team without at least one 6'5" or
taller man, has a. rough time. Nevertheless, the Pirates, although small,
were a scrappy bunch.
The under classmen gained valuable experience and will give a good
accounting of themselves next year. Many of them show great promise
for :future years. p
Vernon John was named to the league all-star team, while Marvin
Duncan and Errol Anderson received honorable mention. Vernon John
also received the league inspirational trophy. In view of his excellent play
throughout the season, it was only fitting that he should receive this

What does it take to turn out three consecutive county championship
baseball teams? That's a question a lot of people are asking-Adna High
School found the recipe-here it is:
1. Add an expert coach who knows his business.
2. Add about twenty boys who have more than average baseball ability
and who have the intestinal fortitude to come through when the
going gets rough.
3. Add a student body and cammunity that are in there supporting
the team all the way.
4. Add a reasonable amount of good breaks Kand the ability to take
advantage of them.j
5. Stir well-cook with spring weather-and watch the championship
teams come out. A
Championship baseball has become a tradition at Adna, and you can
bet your jeans that it will continue to be traditional. We may lose a game
now and then, but Adna will continue to turn out the type of teams seen on
the hill the p-ast three years. As one local paper put it, "Adna High School
has taken a permanent lease on the county championship" pretty well sums
up the whole story. '
Professional baseball even keeps an eye on the boys from Adna. The
Pirate sluggers have had a c'hance at pro-ball the past two years, the most
recent being Harvey Cox who is presently playing with the Lewiston
Broncs of the Western International League.
There is no sport or activity more traditionally American than base-
ball. It is one of the few athletic contests remaining where the smaller boy
with ability is on an equal footing with the big fellow-it doesn't take a
seven foot giant to slam a four bagger, or field a sizzling grounder. This is
the type of athletic contest that Adna High School will continue to excell
in-now and in the future.

For the ninth consecutive year, the Pirates of Adna High School
romped to an easy Win of the Western Division, Class "B", Baseball League
pennant .... Their ownership of the league colors was undisputed
throughout the entire season .... winning every league contest, the
Pirates demonstra.ted that they are the kings of baseball in the class "B"
The 1953 Pirate squad was strong in every department. The pitching,
handled by Gordon Young and Vernon John, was the best in the league.
Ray Wink, who caught every game, proved himself to be one of the teams
most valuable players.
The infield was, Without question, one of the best ever seen at Adna..
Led by Captain Givens at short-stop, Lee Olson at the hot corner, Dan Ol-
son at second base, and Wendell DeBoer at first, stopped the best their
opponents had to offer. Then too, the outfield was tops. Marvin Duncan,
Addison DeBoer, Vernon John fwhen not pitchingj, Glen Thompson and
Bob Johnson all were outstanding in their fielding.
A number of reserves deserve special recognition. Some of these boys
will undoubtedly be the stars of future Pirate championship teams. Bob
Fay, Errol Anderson, Tiny Smith, Bill Mattis, R. Enbom, V. Rayton and
H. Chandler all contributed to the winning of the 1953 league champion-
Mr. James Robinson, Adna's baseball coach, surely deserves a big
cheer from A.H.S. baseball fans. He brought with him to Adna, a great
deal of baseball know-how, without which the team would not be cham-
pions. The team has absorbed his fighting spirit and habits of clean and
fair play .... Coach Robinson is an important part of Adna's champion-
