When roll was called the following people answered: Donna Thomas, Virginia Idso, Marlys Long, Anna Mae Marcus, Delia Hoversten, Janice Nichols, Doris Bennett, Joyce Green, Peggy Caruth, Anna Mae Ulrich, Ladonna Harkema, Vernon Huebner, Robert Cook, Donald Jensen, Richard Klein, Louis Baker, Allen Pingel, Wendell Ingebritson, Norman Kastendick, llile Smuck, James Barry, John Liittschwager, and Marilyn Warmbier. The first part of the mountain climb was under the guidance of Miss Perrin. The highlights were the one act plays and the winning of first prize in the homecoming float contest, Along this part of the journey we lost three fellow climbers. They were Janice Nichols, James Barry, and Marlyn Warmbier. A short rest was then taken and at the start of the journey in September 1948 twenty climbers were still in the group. They were: Donna Thomas, Virginia Idso, Delia Hoversten, Anna Mae Marcus, Doris Bennett, Marlys Long, Joyce Green, Peggy Caruth, Anna Mae Ulrich, Ladonna Harkema, lhle Smuck, Vernon Huebner, Robert Cook, Louis Baker, Donald Jensen, Richard Klein, Wendell lngebritson, Norman Kasten- dick, Allen Pingel, and John Liittschwager. The leadership changed hands and this time Mr. Mueller was responsible for us. 'The highlights for this climb were the class plays and Freshman initiation. This time two climbers left us. They were Donna Thomas and Delia Hoversten. For the first time in our climb we gained a member. She was Jo Ann Johnson. This concluded the second part of the climb and we all settled down for a short rest. When the journey was resumed in September of 1949 the group had seventeen mem- bers continuing the climb, even though it was harder going. They were Virginia Idso, Marlys Long, Anna Mae Marcus, Doris Bennett, Joyce Green, Peggy Caruth, Ladonna Harkema Jo Ann Johnson, Vernon Huebner, Robert Cook, Donald Jensen, Richard Klein, Louis Baker, Wendell lngebritson, Norman Kastendick, John Liittschwager, and Allen Pingel. A new member was added along the way. She was Arleen Meyer. Mrs. Jackson was the leader for thethird part of the journey which had the Junior- Senior Banquet as the highlight. The next part was the most difficult and in September of 1950 the following people started the last and final part of the climb: Marlys Long, Virginia Idso, Anna Mae Mar- cus, Doris Bennett, Joyce Green, Jo Ann Johnson, Peggy Caruth, Ladonna Harkema, Arleen Mever, Robert Cook, Vernon Huebner, Donald Jensen, Richard Klein, Louis Baker, Wendell Ingebritson, Norman Kastendick, John Liittschwager, and a new member Nila Tolbert, who joined us for the last of the journey. -Mr. Larson was the leader for the final climb and it was a tired group that was nearing the top of the High School Mountain when three members dropped from the little band. They were Anna Mae Marcus, Louis Baker, and Peggy Caruth, Finally the goal was reached and the sixteen members of the Senior Class all look back at the fun they have had making their long climb and are all looking forward to higher and more diffi- cult ones. Quiz for English Teachers English, they say, is the language most used, Most spoken, most written, most cruelly abused. The plural of box we all know is boxes, Yet the plural of ox is oxen, not oxes. One goose is a goose, but two are called geese But why isn't more than one moose quoted meese? If more than one tooth we'll designate teeth, Then why isn't more than one booth termed as beeth? We classify pronouns as he, his, and him, But never, it's certain, as she, shis, and shim. No wonder then, foreigners nearly go mad And speak our good English atrociously bad. CLASS WILL We, the Senior Class ol 1951, being 'if sound mind and under no influence other than ourselves bequeath the following mementos to the Junior Class. This document is in effect the 16th of May and every day thereafter, following the graduation 'if the Class 'if '5l. We, the entire Seniur Class. will tothe entire faculty all of the marks on our desks, as they might bring baek ,ld mem iries. "I. Virginia Idso, will my glasses to the whole Junior Class in hopes that they will help them in their studies as much as they have helped me." "I, Ju Ann Johnson. will my position 'in the basketball team to Shorty, as she has it now anyhow, and also my ability to stay out late at night. " "I, Wendall Ingebritson, will my "Super Six" and my ability to steer clear of girls to Dean Christiansen. tThe last part looks hopeless. Y' "I, Doris Bennett, will my quiet ways and few words to Marian Bessman. l wonder how she will make nut?" "I, Robert Cook will my '36 Chevie to any Junior who thinks he can support it with repairs, tires, and gas, and pass my debts onto prosperous Jim Lettow. " "I, Norman Kastendick, will my physique, height and basketball ability to Earl Harms. in hopes that these abilities will do some good in the future." "I, Marlys Long, will my ability to flirt with all the fellows and yet keep my class ring to Delores Faris." "I, .Iohn M. Liittschwager, will all my Editorships to Norma Thorsbakken, and also that contrary twist of fate which brought them to me." "I, Arleen Meyer. will my singing ability and my good luck in being able to talk so much without losing my v iiee to Patty Tolzmann. " "I, Allen Pingel, will my football letters and my ability to get a ride up town nearly every noon to Franklin Klemme. " "I. Don Jensen, will the ruts that I have worn in the road to Iowa Falls to Tom Dunning. But look iut, they are pretty deep." "I, Ladonna Harkenia. will my car and the car load of girls thatl haul around to Harley Raska, but be careful!" "I, Richard Klein, will my bright remarks in class and my happy go lucky ways to John Krause. But look out as they often can get you in trouble. " "I, Vernon Huebner, will my ability to beat the 9 o'clock bell and driving a long way to other towns, but not my Plymouth, to Ervin Heinzeroth in hopes he uses as much good sense as I did. "I, Joyce Green, will my ability tri write notes in school time and all of my broken desks to June Kennedy." "l, Nila Tolbert, will my tardy slips and ability to get along with the opposite sex to Din Carstens. " Due to the fat-t that our class has grown smaller, the preceding documents was witnessed by the c-in . re graduating class. -1 E I 1 CLASCPR GPHECY lt is evening at the John Lilttschwager residence. John has had a hard day campaigning for the election of 1978 as State Governor. John decided to relax and relieve his mind by watching television. He immediately turned the dial to his favorite quiz show, "The Famous People Show." The qulzmaster, Norman Kastendick, appeared first on the screen and after giving a short introduction of 28 minutes upon the popularity of his program, he in- troduced the Lt. Commander of the Aslastic Fleet, Don Jensen. Don took afew minutes to tell of his responsibilities and then introduced two former classmates, now under his command, Arleen Meyer and Marlys Long, who had finished nurses training in 1954 and had been transferred from the U.S. Wasp to the U. S. S. Alden. And now a word from our sponsor. L.S. M. F. T. --Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco. Listen to what Allan Pingel, a noted tobacco auctioneer says, "I have sold tobacco for many years and Lucky Strike buys only the best leaves to give you extra enjoyment. I've smoked Lucky Strike for nigh onto 1 year. " John next turned the dial to his favorite mystery program, "The Case of the Black Chevrolet, " a true story taken from different police files. This case is easily solved by a capable F. B. I. man, Dick Klein. Dick always did have a case with that Chevrolet. This program is sponsored by Spam, the better than ever lunch meat. This meat comes directly from the Tolbert Ranch in Texas. As you know, that ranch has two-thirds of all the cattle in Texas. We interrupt this show for a very important bulletin ---- A new jet has been developed! It is thought to travel faster than sound. "Why, that's faster than what my Ford goes," says John to himself. This plane was tested by Ladonna Harkema, one of the natlon's greatest speed pilots. John now dials his favorite musical program, featuring the great opera sing- er, Joyce Green. It seems that Joyce is currently starring in the opera"Cowman" at Harmony Hall in Alden Falls fthe town formed from the joining of Alden and Iowa Falls.J Miss Green's able secretary and guide, Doris Bennett, disclosed yesterday that the actress is retiring for a few months rest. Any fan mail can be addressed to the "Pot Green Resort," Pot, Maine. And now to your announcer, Bob Cook, the man of many words, "Buy a new Plymouth with the atomic engine and save money. These cars have all been road- tested and checked by that great Plymouth operator, Vernon Huebner." Even though Mr. Huebner is now an execttuve, he still has time to make test runs on the new models. Speaking of models, have you seen the advertisement of the Plymouth with the girl standing beside it? If you thought she looked familiar, you were right. That's Jo Johnson, who models for all new cars. Jo says she likes her work, especially modeling for Buicks and Fords. John next turns to the lecture on "Teachers vs Human Beings, " by Virginia Idso. She was appointed teacher of the year by all the students in the U.S. While on her winning trip to New York she had the opportunity of seeing Wend ell Inge- britson play on the Alden Weasels Professional Basketball team. It wa s rumored that Wendell had been paid to throw the game, but we from Alden know that would- n't be possible because common sense would tell you that no one could pick up a game and throw it! After this program John decided he had better get some sleep, as he would have another hard day tomorrow. He's running for governor on the Tory ticket, you know. 4 5 .3 4 IUXIIIII l'l-L'.'

Junior-Senior Banquet The Junior-Senior Banquet was held in the gym of Alden High School on April 20th, 1951. The Juniors entertained the Sem mrs at dinner and dancing. The dinner was prepared by the Junior mothers and served by ten Sophomore boys and girls. Jack Pommrehn, President ofthe Junior Class. gave the welcome and Allen Pingel, President of the Senior Class. gave the response. Dean Christensen, Vice President of the Junior Class. read the c lass prophecy. Dick Klein, Vice President ofthe Senior Class, read the will. The table decorations carried out the theme of Rhapsody in Blue. The platform on which the band was seated carried out the theme of the carousel. Modernistic design was also carried out. Don McMillan returned to his Alma-Mater with his orchestra and furn- ished ballroom dancing for the remainder of the evening. 1 1 Epphomore Class 9 he 'I Front Row, left to right: M. Hunt, M.

Kromminga. c aa Achim' ies On the bright summer day of August 28th, 1950, the Alden School opened its doors to 71 bright and eager High School students and 175 grade school children. So school began with every member of the faculty ready and waiting--with books in hand. By the time the month of September rolled around we had many plans for leasure as well as hard work For instance on the 5th, the Jtmiors gave chase P - - i to the Seniors in the yearly Junior-Senior Hunt. tOf course they didn't find us.l And on the 8th the Freshmen received orders from the Sophomores to appear in their initiation rigs to display themselves to the assembly. The Sophomores then gave the Freshmen a party. The l8th of September was one of the biggest days for the Junior Class, as this was the day they started on their magazine sales. The 27th the Seniors had one of their biggest pleasures. This was the day they dressed in their best glad rags and traveled to Ames to have their pictures taken. ln October the entire school was buzzing with plans for the 6th, our Home- coming game with Colo. Each and every member was quite busy that day with pre- parations for floats and the Homecoming Dance. Then the 16th day of the month the Juniors had a hay ride party, to which each member was allowed one partner. November 9th and 10th the Juniors gave a wonderful Junior Class Play, "Bolts and Nuts." Might I say they enjoyed play practice also. Well, what's this? Two red-letter days, the 23rd and 24th. Well I'll be, our Thanksgiving vacation! ---then back to school. By the time December rolled around, the winter was well on it's way, so we took from the 25th to the 2nd of January off from school and basketball to thaw out and enjoy our Christmas and New Years vacation. -A January ll, marked a day of triumph in A.H.S. for it was the day that ended our first semester. On the day of February 7, the school was minus a few girls. The Freshman and Sophomore Home Ec. Girls were all busy preparing the Faculty and School Board dinner to be served that evening. "Let me in, I hear music," was the cry of the members of mixed c horus. They wt re practicing for the High School Operetta that was given March 9th in the High School auditorium. lt seems that a little bit of heaven fell right into our gym, because on the 20th , April the Juniors and Seniors found themselves in the midst of a "Rhapsody in Blue" banquet. The close of April also found Baseball replacing Basketball. The month of May was given a big send off by the presentation of the Senior Class Play, which fell on the evenings of the l0th and llth. But after all, why shouldn't this month be exclusive. It's the last one of school isn't it? Hurrah! was proudly said as each Senior spent his last day in school on Class Day, May the 18th. The evening of May 20th was a solemn one for the Seniors, for on this night were their Baccaleaureate Services in the Methodist Church. May 23rd was given tribute to, with a school picnic highlighting morning activities while Senior Commencement exercises were held in the evening. It looks as though there are some school activities left. The most important is Eighth Grade Graduation which was held on the 24th. Here is the S64 question--"Was the 25th day of May a good one or not?' Now that depends on the individual and his report card. However, it was the last day of school and we should think seriously of it. New Eighth graders, Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors will be back next year as the school bell calls them. cooks 5 Doris Kearney and Minnie Raska I BUS DRIVERS , Harold La Velle . 1 Q and P 4Q Clive Akers -IQ A v 4 SEVENTH GRADE H A K 5 Bottom Row, loft to right: V.

The Alden football season showed a group of hard fighting, high spirited boys, even though the record doesn't show it. As the season progressed the team improved, winning two games, Conrad and Iowa Falls B Squad. The Homecoming game proved to be full of excitement and suspense, in spite of the rain, for both teams were held scoreless. Next year's team will be Composed mostly of Juniors and Seniors and since only two boys graduated this year, the 1951 season should be a success- ful one.

Although the Alden Girls' Basketball season started rather slowly, much improvement was shown toward the end of the season. This point was well demonstrated as the team entered the Sectional Tournament. The girls proceeded to the Consolation Round and brought home Alden's first trophy in six years by defeating Rowan, 54-32. Another highlight of the same tournament was the fact that Jo Ann John- son, Senior Forward, won the Sectional Free Throw Contest by completing 19 of 25 shots. Upon graduation, the girls' team will lose the following four Seniors: Jo Ann Johnson, Virginia Idso, Nila Tolbert, and Marlys Long. Letter winners include the twelve girls pictured above.

The Alden Redskins basketball team of 1950-1951 had a very good season compared to the record of previous years. The Redskins came through with a 10 win and 9 loss record. The Redskins played Whitten in the Pine Lake Tournament and were beaten bythe small margin of 6 points. The real highlight of the season came, however, when the Redskins de- feated Popejoy and Williams to be able to play in the Sectional Tournament finals .... a real treat to Alden fans. Due to an operation a first string guard was unable to play after Christ- mas vacation. It was a tough break for the team, but under the capable guid- ance of Coach Grantham the Redskins overcame this bad break and kept improving throughout the season. Next year, the Redskin lineup will be absent 3 Seniors from the first spuad and 2 Senior substitutes, however, the coming seasons look promising.

"BOLTS AND NUTS" The Juniors presented their class play, an uproarious comedy in three acts, on September 9 and 10 in the High School auditorium. The story revolves around Miss Rebecca Bolt whose hobby is psycoanalysis and who inherits a spooky old mansion from an eccentric brother. She turns it into a sanitarium for patients with phobias and nervous diseases, much to the dis- may of her neice Benita. Whereupon, the nuts start to pour in, and the fun begins in earnest. Lutie Spinks, the man-hating maid, has a nervous habit of winking that gets her into trouble with flirtatious men patients. The play, under the capable direction of Mrs. Walton and Miss Pettigrew, was very successful and all who attended enjoyed it very much. JUNIOR MAGAZDJE SALES Mr. Walter Byers of the Curtis Publishing Company came on September 19, 1950, to explain to the class about the Magazines Sale plan for a way to make money for the Junior-Senior banquet. The class was very eager to get started on the sales and were divided into what proved to be, during the period of sales, two very energetic and close racing teams. They were the Red and the Blue being captained by Earl Harms and Jim Lettow respectively. A very exciting eleven days were spent in the magazine sales. The Junior Class started out with 31, 000 as their goal, but of course their real hopes were to surpass the last year's record made by the Juniors which was 31,059. 00. At the end of the sale the team captained by Earl Harms was declared the winner with 3547. 25 and Jim Lettow's side close with 3534.45 making a total of 31081. 70, which caused us to reach our goal and break last year's record. The high salesman was Jack Pommrehn with 3184. 50, second was Jim Lettow with 3l29.40g and Norma Thorsbakken third with 3105. 35. The award for attaining more than 31,000 in the sales was awarded to the Juniors. It was a plaque which was placed in the assembly next to the plaque re- ceived by the Juniors last year. The high salesman Jack Pommrehn, was awarded a trophy, and those selling 330. or more were awarded certificates for their salesmanship.

Smith and Geoffrey O' Hara, was presented by the High School music department on March 9, 1951. General Earnest Work, honorary president of Harmony Hall, is a musical monomaniac, and supports his college on condition that every student study music. His only child, Doolittle Work is hopelessly unmusical, and being so, his father pays McTavish, a Scotch lawyer, a large sum of money to keep the lad away from him. Having no heir to his fortune, General Work adopts the prima donna Rosalie, a famous soprano, and arranges for her marriage to Signor Brownini, a tenor. Shortly before the wedding is to take place professional jealousy causes them to quarrel and break their engagement. In the meantime, unknown to his father, Doolittle has taken a job as the Glee Club's business manager. Since the General is so heartbroken over the separation of his lovebirds he accepts the suggestion of Mrs. Hammersley Keys, Rosalie's chaperone, and hires Doolittle to pretend to fall in love with Rosalie and thus cause Brownini to become jealous and go back to Rosalie. This plan does not work since Brownini has agreed to marry Maritana, Rosalie's understudy, who can cook. in the end every one is happy with Rosalie engaged to.Doolittle, Brownini to Maritana, and General Work to Mrs. Keys. ,Q ,fi-..-ef---Q ' 2 hats-N MMECQMING ,im Queen and Attendants 'fel YX Left to Right: Marilyn Larson, Arleen Meyer, Queeng Evelyn Grupe, and June Kennedy. The Homecoming festivities were started on the evening of October 4, by the burning of the dummy and the snake dance. The day of H'mmec'imingf'iund the schoolh muse rather empty as all the classes were busily putting the finishing t iuches on their floats fir the parade that evening. As parade time neared, the hustle and bustle of Homecoming increased as floats were put in place and people began to gather to watch the parade which was to pass through the Main Street of Alden to the High School and around the football field. The fl iatsthis year were allciilorfully decorated and showed much originality. The Juniors and Sophomores tied for high honors on their floatsg the Juniors being a merry-go-round which actually turned and had the motto "Our Merry-Go-Round Never Breaks Down." The Sophomores float was a very bright rocket: their motto being "Rocketing To Victory. " The Seniors used the motto "Alden will Shine Tvnight. " t.he Freshmen "Ready for Colo," the 8th Grade, "Gunning for Victory." The Grade Rooms joined together carried out a circus theme which was very colorful. The next exciting event on the program was the crowning of the Homecoming Queen at half time. The candidates, Arleen Meyer, Senior: June Kennedy, Junior: Evelyn Grupe, Sophomore: and Marilyn Larson. Freshman, were all dressed in formals and appeared on the football field riding in a convertible. By a vote taken in High School, Arleen Meyer was crowned Queen by Allen Pingel, the football captain, who also gave her a quick kiss. The game, while very exciting, ended in a down pour of rain with few specta- tors. Next on the program was the annual Homecoming Dance, the Music Makers providing the music. Everyone completely enjoyed himself until 12:30 A.M. when the dance ended. Of course the enjoyable evening lingers in all our memories.

A NOTE OF THANKS The students if Alden School wish to express their appreciation to the PTA and School Board for the new piano in the assembly. A Committee was sent to Mason City to purchase it where they also bought the bench to match, a florescent light. and flannel material to cover the piano and stool. This was to protect it from the wear and tear of the students passing to and from class. The piano was presented to the school, and it was decided by the students to have a song fest every Monday morning. The size of the piano is convenient for the pianist can watch the performers on the stage.

A group of our ambitious and musical students, who are also members of the school band, joined together under the direction of Mr. Mueller and formed a very entertaining group, better known as the "German Band." They were made known in the latter part of the first semester and were seen giving performances at the Woman's Club, afeed meeting, the Christmas Concert, and at assembly programs. In a short season of performances they became very popular and it' s sincerely hoped that they will continue again next year.
