To Mr. Richard Palmer fclass of l942J student and teacher
of man 's story and expression, we sincerely dedicate this book.
All who knew him knew him as a man who was relentless
in his obiective, logical and incisive pursuit of truth, while
never losing touch with Life. He was that rare personage who
had weighed Life, and who hadkalso found an answer. To every-
one he was on understanding, iocular man who spoke with
clirectness and simplicity. It was said of him that he was a
teacher who was so in earnest, natural and convincing that he
could lecture standing on his head, if he wished, and never lose
his students attentiveness to what he was saying.
Mr. Palmer was one of us, and we knew upon reflection
that it was because he represented a little of somethin we
hoped we were. Our earnest hope is that this volume symboqizes
such men and institutions as Mr. Richard Palmer, teacher.

It is easy to forget, gathering the fruit in the fall, that the tree
fhalt of which is undergroundl has grown through many winters
and, with the cultivator, has labored long to provide those
Thus it is with many of us, and to ponder these things on oc-
casion, is to appreciate those fruits more keenly. ln our edu-
cation it is the administrators and Board of Education that gather,
interpret and integrate to provide this framework and nourish-
ment, the solid network of roots necessary to life above ground.
They cultivate and direct the education process. How quietly
and efficiently does this tree function. How complex, detailed,
and wide in scope are the problems they face.
Our thanks to you, who are so instru-ele-mental in our edu-
cation, and yet not oft-recognized.

The end of a period of years of prepara-
tion has come to us, the class of l95l. As
distinctly as this marks the first class to gradu-
ate "over the hill" into the second half of the
twentieth century is also marked the end of a
sort of epoch. We have come from all the
corners of life drawn together by incidents which
mark the milestones.
Though a trifle sad, this is not an unhappy
time, yesterday is gone, tomorrow is herel We
remember the sadness, the smiles-and more
than occasional belly laughs.We rememberthe
parties lslumber and otherwiselg "Tigg's", the
rush for the buses, the cold nights we suffered
at the football field, hauling cakes-to-coffee

initiation days, Field Day, the times we got
to strut our stuff -- Homecoming, the Relays,
"the Tournament," and when the curtain went
up you thought you'd forget, but you didn't.
All these and many more--we won't forget.
To our many guides we say a pitifully
inadequate "Thank you," and close the doors
for the last time, except the one door that
counts, the one that has lust been opened "To
All Who Wish To Learn."

We Juniors are ready for the last lap in our
high school careers, with an impressive array of
laurels and scintillating personalities. Although
possessing no dual-personalities Cwe hopei, we
boast two pairs of twins, the Kains and the Clap-
Dick and Bob Kain head up along list of Junior
wrestlers: Reding, Meyer, Sparks et al, and their
fthe Kainsj only regret is their as-yet fruitless
search for the perfect pair ofelevator shoes. Jack
and Jill Clapsaddle can be often seen soddling
their motorcycles, and "Jill-Jill" can often be
heard, as well, especially during pep meetings.
While we're waiting for the pep meeting to
begin, let's glance around fora few more athletes .
Over here, adjusting their helmet straps, are
gridmen Samp, Bryant, and Beamish. And over
in thatcorner are huddleda group of gesticulating

Shirley Shipler, Marlyne McLaughlin and -----
Oh, say, there's the Female Bombshell--Joan

Ruth Seger and Bobs Galbraith. Kibitzing over
their shoulders is Rog Anderson, the noted critic.
Gary Hoover, our casanova boy,is chatting with
the two Homecoming Queen candidates, Madonna

It's wonderful to belong to the Sophomore
class but it's tough to write about it. That's be-
cause we 're such a modest group that we hesitate
to put our achievements on paper. fWhy make
the Seniors feel frustratedlJTo begin with, cold,
scientific tests placed the Sophomore class first
place in intelligence, but we can't print that--
we never boast. Let's try a new tack.
"Our class is intensely interested in school
athletic programs ---------- "
Voice of upperclassman breaks in, "Why
wouldn't you be--with footballers Scanlan and
Lompright and court experts Anderson, Hut-
chinson, and Frazer and---. "
We sigh and try again. "The Sophomore class
enthusiastically supports all extra-curricular ac-
tivities, and won the spirit cup ---- . "
Chorus of disgruntled Juniors, "You have to:
you rate representatives in all music groups, five
cheerleaders in pep sections and aspiring thespians
in the competitive one-act plays."
We're about ready to hand this assignment back
to the editor, only Sophs. never quit. Here's our
final effort for the glory of the class of '53.
Class brains C. Shierk, A. Kresensky, R.
Baldwin, J . Murtagh, M. Thaves, C. Wellendorf,
M. Stillman, S. Sullivan and on and on disprove
a ny distasteful implications of the supposed
literal meaning of Sophomore l"Wise Fool", in
Latin, Mr. C. says.l
Pressed for a quick quip, Al Urch, lwho can't
look at another girl himself unless Lois Riebhoff
is in the next county--so why should he talkj
comes up with another comeback, "Ruth
Schweppe? Yah, a confirmed old maid off to a
bad startl " Other old maids, perhaps not so con-
fi rmed: JoAnne Sharp and Marilyn Thaves, And if
you go by the saying that boys only tease the girls
they like, Virginia lFredai Fristedt must be the
most popular girl in the class. While we're passing
out titles, let's give Karen Heller an engraved
pillow for being "Most lnclined to Daydream,"
and a big loving cup to Lovers Jon Rising and

Sophomore modesty prevents us from saying more I

We Freshmen make up nearlyone-third of the
high school enrollment and, though handicapped
by our newness and inexperience, we're sure we
provide at least that much ofthe color and lite
in school. We can compete with the upperclass-
men quite successfully, as is proved by: Bob
Lampright and Jack Scobba, on the "A" squad in
wrestling, Bill f"Dizz"j Dewel and Jim f"Boner"J
Bunkofske, al ready proficient chemists, Zoe
Clegg and Jane Dearchs, the only two Freshman
cheerleadersp Dave Yeoman and Joyce Anderson,
musicians extraordinary fist tenor in quartet and
most-demanded accompanist, resp.J Pauline Lenz
and Jackie Vanderwual, French-Horn specialists
Qfinally mastered "Come to Jesus in the Key of
C"J and many more .
The Frosh float, which took third at Home-
coming, was constructed in Cal Tschetter's garage,

everything in a big way. Judy Steil is outstanding
in girls' basketball, and boys' basketballers in-
clude the Elbert twins, Dave Devine Darold
Simmons, Ronnie Gerber, "Flip" Miller, and
Chuck "Skyscraper" Steil . Warren Griggs and
Dave Yeoman head the list of camera-enthusiasts,

"Blow the whistle and clear the halls! Here
we come!" Although upperclassmen wince and
become wary whena Jr. High door bursts open and
we come charging out, it's iust boiling over a
We find a lot of things to do with that pep,
Under Coach DeMouth the Jr. High football
team finished the season with aperfect record--
five wins and no defeats! A few of our gridmen
are: "Shag" and "Shorty", fthe Cook brothersj,
"Bull" Stevens, Bill Laurtizen, and Bill Fain--
our cagey quarterback. The basketball team, too,
has an enviable record, and included Walker and
Helmersfthe long and short of itl, and Christensen
and Webb fthe size of itj, to name only a few.
The grapplers have been gaining valuable ex-
perience, with their eyes on future varsity berths
on the Algona's topflight wrestling squad. Backing
up the teams with those special Jr. High yells
are cheerleaders Adel, Kay, "Cookie", and
Karen. The girls are sportsminded, as well, and
organized a Jr. High G.A.A. this year, too,
with Cleone Crawford and Kay Hardgrove as of-
ficers. Remember the earsplitting drum cadences
during fifth periods last fall? That was Jr. High
Marching Band practicing, with Donna Powers as
maiorette, Chuck Taylor leading the trombones,
Joan Bergeson, Dave Bunting and Kay Brayton
bolstering the woodwinds, Karen Kuchenreuther
and Karen Downey representing the percussion
section. Dozens of other able musicians help make
up aJr. HighConcert Band, a Second Swing Band
Jr. High Chorus etc.

Algona 's graduation-thin gladiators opened the
l95O football season under the bright, watt-l oaded
arcs at the Fairground Arena early in September.
After early season maulings the green Guzowski
men finally ripened enough to do a little mauling
of their own before the season's end.
Always interesting in victory or defeat, the
boys never disappointed their followers. They
played an exciting open game which brought
heavy-blanketed crowds to theirfeet as the Bull-
dogs gambled on the long thrust and the deft
At season's end the team met to electWendell
Parkard and Dick Samp co-captains . To add to this
honor the mild-mannered, hard-working Packard
was voted a berth on the all-conference team .
The T-formation style was further crimped
when powerful running back Merle Moore was off to
war. All in all the season might be hailed flt
hailed while we played Hamptonl as a thumping
success as the team mellowedintoa tough, clock-
like unit which improved enough to scare saucy
Humboldt, the conference champ. fThe score:
Humboldt 26 Algona 25.1
But for l95l the picture looked even brighter.
Inexperienced boys were moving into the veteran
class . The si lk-smooth, gut-tough backfieldwould
be back virtual ly intact, with rough young fthough
inexperiencedl reinforcements moving up all down
the line. Jim Scanlan, Jerry Beamish, Bill Lamp-
right and others might well be the nifty-ones for

Homecoming actually began weeks before the
celebration proper, with program and dance plans
being made , decorations being put up, floats being
put together, the pep rally, and enthusiasm
building up about who the new Queen would be.
And at last the great day dawned--cold and windy .
But the attitude of the revelers could hardly be
termed cold. Althougha little "windy" the parade
that wound through town was a mass of color and
The game , in which an inspired Bulldog eleven
was pitted agonist the Humboldt Wildcats, was a
very close one. The Algona boys, with victory
almost in their grasp several times, finally went
down to a one-point defeat before the undefeated
At halftime the winning float lthe Senior's
"Rocket to Victory"l was announced and the queen
was presented. Pert, smiling Patty Olson received
the crown, her attendants being Donna Nauman,
Madonna McGuire, and Chloris Skogstrom.
After the game, the Homecoming Dance was
held in the gym. Larry Wolcott and Bettyanne
Parkins sang some melodies in honor of the Queen,
and as the last notes of the band died away, so
ended another homecoming.

So many records were broken and re-set by the Bulldog
matmen this year it would be almost impossible to list allof
theml In fact it can probably be said that this was the out-
standing team thus far in A. H. S. wrestling history.
Let's take a quick rundown: 11.J Algona's second place
position in the state finals was the highest ever reached by a
Bulldog wrestling team and 12. J was the highest any Algona
athletic team has placed in state athletics since the football
team of '25 was unofficially recognized as state champs. 13.3
The team finished undefeated for the first time in A. H, S.
wrestling and was also the only team in the state to finish the
season undefeated. 14.5 Paul Fisher became Algona's first re-
peat championship winner and, incidentally, was the only
last year's state winner to retain the crown. 15.1 Fisher and
Montie Black share the laurels as the first two A. H. S. matmen
to win state titles the same year, as well as being the only
two title winners this year who come from the same school.
16. J Montie finished an undefeated season, marking the sec-
ond time such a record has been reached at A. H.S.
But, starting from the beginning, the conference title was
won after racking up eight straight wins. A week later they
tied Ft. Dodge in the last dual meet of the season. Then the
district contest, which, judging by the fact that six state
champs came from this district, is perhaps the toughest in
Iowa. Ft. Dodge, who, ironically, failed to win one point in
the state contest, won first place and Algona second. Then
the state, where we garnered I4 points to finish second only
to Waterloo, who had no titleists at alll Later, several boys
traveled to Waterloo for the Y.M.C.A. tournament.

The L'Allegro Clubs affiliated with the American Federated Music
Clubs of Iowa, consist of 25 outstanding girl vocalists who meet as
often as cramped schedules will allow to blend their voices in almost
any type of music. They're as at-home in a "heavy" by Bach as they
are singing blues by Berlin, and they certainlymake pleasantlistening.

These boys specialize in spirituals and often

Vocal Director Harold Weber said one time,
"Of all the bass-baritone soloists that I have
taught, Larry is the most outstanding and the most
promising for a real career in the vocal field."
Indeed, with only two years of formal training,
fast-developing Larry Wolcott has scored an im-
posing array of musical triumphs, including the
coveted Superior rating given by the Cavalcade of
Music at the contest in Des Moines last year--a
contest embracing several North Central states.
The Local Bel Canto Club sponsored hisappearance
at the State Fair, he has appeared on radio station
WCCO and KWDM, and he sang at the North Cen-
tral Conference musicfestival at Humboldt. He is
also much in demand for performances at local
progrqms , Perhaps his most widely listened-to per-
formances were on WCC O, notabIyCedric Adam's
famous Stairway to Stardom in which he reached
the semi-finals. Some of his favorites are "Song
of the Open Road," "Shadrock, " and "Invictus. "
His repertorie includes songs in Spanish le .g . "One
AIong"J and songs of german lieber Ce.g. "The
Two Grenadiersnj. Larry is also President of the
Mixed Chorus and a member of many vac-.. and
instrumental music groups.
Bettyanne Parkins is blonde, green-eyed and
a coloratura soprano-which makes her as pleasant
tollSfer1 to as to look at. As we all know, a
coloratura is a very high soprano, and is liable to
sing such songs as the Italian "Ol Bacio" by
Ardit, "Alleluia" by Mozart, "Summertime" by
Gershwin, and something in Spanish, such as
"Estrellita. " Beautiful Bettyanne does all of these
very well and finds time to be president of the
L'AIIegro Club besides. She has been studying
voice for three years and, proving the pudding,
rated an Excellent in the Cavalcade of Music
competition in Des Moines. She, like Larry W.
and altoist Jackie Miller is a Senior.
Jackie Miller is alto soloist and sang the solos
"Beautiful Savior"and "O Bread of Life"with the
mixed chorus this year. She has studied voice for
only a year, but has brought more than one of us
up with a start when she gives her inimitable Jo
Stafford-style treatment to a sang.

The speech department sttstained a heavy loss early last fall
.n tlte re-calling of Mr. Palmer tothe U. S. Army. As a resttlt,
lebate was discontinued, bitt Mr. McDowell picked up the loose
'orensic ends and witha different emphasis has coached the A. l-I.
S. speech students through a successful season.
Success in a speech activity can be no means be measured
olely on the number of so-called "wins", but even on this score,
his years record will compare well. This year Algona joined tlte
owa High School Speech Association, ano hence affiliated with
wo associations, already being a member of the Iowa Forensic
Interpretative readers Dianne Schaap, and Joyce Brand, radio
pea ker Larry Wolcott, and extemporaneotts speaker Edd Laing were
'orensic League state contestants at Iowa City.
In the Iowa High School SpeechAss'n competition, Larry Wol-
:ott and Dianne Schaap advanced in their divisions to the Pre-
Jistrict round, Ioan Fain went on to tlte District with her original
tration as did Edd Laing in "extemp". Laing advancedto the State
contest, emerging with a ist Division rating.
Student Council can hardly be termed solev it deliberative
body, for mitch of their activity occurs outside tncettngs, tug.:
acting as guides or money takers when the occasion arise, spon-
soring dances and the homecoming festivities, treating noon hour
recreation program, etc,
In December the council attended tlte annual North Central
Conference meeting of Student Councils ofthe eight North tlicutrril
Schools held at Humboldt.
The Spirit Cup, awarded periodically on L1 systemtittt: point
basis according to participation in extra-curricular activities and
school achievement, was won by the Sophomores 5 IIIIICS out of

Some of the things the Algona High Girls
Athletic Association does to "stimulate interest
in wholesome, leisure-sportsmanship" are: par-
ticipation in basketball and volleyball intra-
mural tournaments, the giving of picnics, dances
and roller skating parties, sponsorship of the
cheerleaders and the awarding of achievement
points and letters to members. Achievement
points are given on afixed basis in relation to the
amount of time spent in participation in sports,
such as hiking, tennis, swimming, etc., with
certain limits and qualifications to make the
system equitable. A prospective G.A.A. er
must have amassed l00 points to be eligible for
membership and when 500 points are reached
gr red "letter" is awarded by the local club. At
l000 points the state G.A.A. awards an a-
chievement pin. New members undergo a most
colorful and rigorous initiation period, and the
weirdest rites and costumes may be observed in
the halls during this time. Miss Colette Johnson
is sponsor and officers are: Donna Nauman,

Last fall the Pres. and Vice-Pres. attended
the National FFA Convention at Kansas City and
were chapter delegates to the State Convention at
Sioux City this spring. Also at Sioux City was
Bill Hurn, placing 2nd in the state finals of the
FFA Public Speaking Contest. He had previously
competed inthe sub-districtand districtFFA con-
tests and had won a Gold certificate in both
competitions. Bearing up well in the Sub-District
and District Contests were Dick Kain tExtemp.
speakingj, and the Parliamentary Procedure team
tDodds, Sorenson, Lindhorst, Kenned y and
Strayerl. Dick Kain won Gold certificates both
times and the team won one Gold certificate and
one Silver certificate l2ndl . Richard Kueclcerwon
a Silver certificate in the Sub-district contest for
his recitation of the FFA Creed.
In April the boys sponsored the Ralph Pierce
Magic Show to raise money for the treasury. At
present the chapter owns on oat huller and 2
sows with i3 springs pigs, so you can see that
they have a good start toward the actualities of
which farming consists.

The scene is Algona on a bright and good-for-business
morning anumber of years after the class of 1951 has grad-
uated. Let us stroll down State Street and inquire around as
to the occupations and activities of our former classmates.
We seem to be passing a used-car lot--the sign says
"Come in and see 'Slip-Me-A-Sawbuck' Sloter, the only
woman used car dealer in Kossuth County." My she certainly
seems to be doing a thriving business, look at all the cars--
Say, there's a sporty looking, hi-powered automobile,
lwonder who--oh, I remember now! There was a picture
of it in the Algona papers a while back--I guess it was built
by John Albright and is supposed to be the only car in exis-
tence that can be operated while the driver is asleepl
Speaking of theAlgona papers, let's drop by on our way.
This must be publication day--I can see Ronald Loesch
through the window there, at the linotype machine. He
looks very busyg maybe we'd better not disturb him. Here's
a paper just off the press, though, let's catch up on the news
while we're strolling along. My, it seems to be just full of
news about people we know.
Here's an item about the P. T.A. --"Pres, Dolores Jensen
announces new program. "- -by theway we betterstop by the
High School in a little while. . . Here's another item: "Laing
finishes 58th book, breaks Zane Gray's record as well as
Heinz's. . . however .... unpublished as are all the others". . .
"Navy Nurse Patricia Olson is back on leave." Here's an
advertisement for a muscle building salon "Only I4 minutes
a day--the Platt, Dremmel Way!" Ah, the society page--
the Old Tymes Women's Club met Thursday, Sharon God-
fredson was elected President and Mary Lou Klemm Vice
President. Mrs. Kent Seeley, the former Alice Mathes, is
going to sell her famous horse "Hadaco1." "Hadacol" won
the Kentucky Derby, you will remember, and contributed a
large part to their horse farm fortune. I see where the Kos-
suth County Agronomy Assoc. met last week with chairman
Don Strayer presiding and fabulously wealthy Paul Zumach
givinga talk on "Five Ways to Clean Up." Here's an ad for
the new ballroom outside of town--"Jim Lindhorst's Dance
Palace" it'scalled. Here'sa confusing ad: "Come to the
Packard Garage, formerly Sorenson's. " Oh, I guess Wendell
Packard must havebought out his boss. Ah, the sports page.
According to this item Bob Thompson and Dick Sarchet are
retiring from professional football and going intobusiness
manufacturing "The Little Dandy Antiseptic. "
So much for the paper.
Well, here's the Nepolitan Opera House" Managers Larry
Wolcott and Bettyanne Parkins. " Here on the billboard are
posters for "Koestler and Langmack" in their famous ven-
triloquist act"--it doesn't say which is the dummy. What's
this poster? A circusl "Coming next week--Bill Anken-
bauer Shows, Featuring Trick Cyclist Bob Dodds, Bantam-
Weight Broesder Ctakes all comersj and Montie Black and
his wrestlingapes Qworld championsj. " This sign says "Drop
out to the airport Sunday and see Stunt-Flyer Algene Hen-
drickson perform breathtaking acrobatics. This 0113 SHYS.
"Hear Evangelist Ed Bowman tonight here at the Opera House,
7:15. " Say those names sound vaguely familiar.
Across the Street is the old Mainlinerg I can see Helen
Gade, Marilyn Peterson and Katherine Fraser hovering over
the cash register. Isn't that Vera Patton and Joanne Meyer
carrying all those bundles? Look who's coming out of the
grocery store, Iwish lknew their married names--used to be
Ruth Fuerstenau, Joan Rechess, Beverly Robison and Dolores
Lane. It seems to me Dolores Lane married an army man,
but l'm not sure.
The signs on the store fronts certainly recall a lot of old
friends. "Hanselman, Pecoy, and Dillon--Cosmetologists
Extraordinary". "Simons, Miller and Parsons Business Col-
lege." "Earl Elmore's Pool Hall--come in and see world
famous snooker expert Jim Lage."
"Shumway, Kelley, Fristedt and Pitzenberger, Law-
yers, " "Donna Nauman- -Advice to the Love1orn". . . . .
Who's this labor organizer haranguing these workers on
the corner- -why it's Gordon Brownl lt must be almost noon--
I see the high-schoolers coming out. There's Ag. Man Stan-
ley Sorensen, girl's P. E. instructor Hagen and school nurse
McVeigh going down to the Lunch room, l hear Marilyn
Thompson and Pauline Bowman prepare excellent lunches.
I just remembered--if we hurry back down town we
should arrivejust in time for a meeting of one of the service
clubs. I wonder whose this funeral is that's going by? Let's
ask this lady over here- -why it's Gloria Steele,the librarian!
She tells us that the funeral is for Al Lundh, who dropped a
cigarette in the gas tank of a car while running gasoline in
at his fillingstation. Gloria also informs us that Dave Vaughn
is back on leave from Ft. Snelling where he is a lieutenant-
Here we are just in time for dinner at the Rotary Club
meeting. My, Algona has a number of prosperous business-
men: Don Hiserodt, who now owns Richardson's Furniture
Store, informs us as we eat dessert that Robert Christensen
Cto your lefty is now north Iowa 's richest clothing magnate.
George Pierce, at the head of the table, is manager of the
Weidenhoff Plant and James Palmer, the noted architect, is
Algona's newly elected Mayor. We inquire about Dick Samp
and are told that he and Alton Rochleau are a few miles
north of town panningfor gold in the Des Moines River. They
tell us that yes, Lee Colburn is STILL around and that his
still is north of town, too. fHe and Bill Clegg make the
famous "C :Et C"--guaranteed I2 hours old and will cure
anything.J No one sees Jerry Zittritsch very much, he lives
alone in his studio with his canvas and paints. Some one
informs us that they receiveda letter from Pat Bohn, who is
in California getting his Hollywood Haircut trimmed and
visiting the now famous Jim Kennedy, successor to Clark
Well, the dinner's over. Glad to have seen you again.

PUSTSCRIPT Fli0M THE ADMI l TRATIO
It has been our observation that the
Bulldog becomesa sortof family reference
work for a number of years. Since there
are some questions that are asked about our
obiectives, curriculum, etc. , that are not
answered elsewhere, we are including this
extra section as a sort of supplement.
O. B. LAING
l. Some general facts
The Algona High School has an en-
rollmentof 330 in senior highfgr. 9-122
and l4l iniunior high igr. 7-81. Our
high school has been an approved
member of the North Central Associa-
tion every year since l906 -- an en-
viable record in itself since this mem-
bership requiresa high standard of all-
around work -- curriculum, scholar-
ship, personnel, equipment -- en-
titling graduates to admission to al-
most all colleges without examination.
lt serves a dual purpose in offering
training for later college admission for
as high as 40470 of its graduates in some
years and also training for general use-
fulness in participation in community
life for those who do not attend col lege .
Our high school curriculum offers
work that is both college preparatory
and vocational, examples of the latter
being our agricultural, homemaking,
and commercial courses. Perhaps that
is one of the reasons why our school has
a comparatively low "drop-out" ratio
in iunior-senior high. Standardized
tests each year indicate a high a-
chievement in the "fundamental" sub-
iects such as English, Mathematics,
Our elemantary grades, Kg.-oth,
numbering 590 pupils enrolled, offer
the usual subjects found in practically
all schools. One noteworthy aim we
have kept in mind is that of a reason-
able teacher-pupil ratio. Perhaps this
accounts in great part fora consistent-
ly high standing of scholarship as
shown every year by standardized tests.
Our faculty, grades and high
school, now numbers 52 members, 32
of these with four years of college
training or more--all with over two
years of such work. Usually we have
about 25fyo of our staff or more in
summer school each summer. ln ad-
dition many ore adding to their use-
fulness as teachers by summertravel
including Europe and Central America.
We have a total of 2,704graduates
from our high school since the first
class of 1885. One of our loyal alumni
still actively supporting our activities
and interested inthese 70 young people
who graduate in June, l95l is Miss
Lucia Wallace ofthe class of l885.
ll. Our obiectives
The high school faculty has for-
mulated the following aims which are
connected with our various courses and
"extra-curricular" activities. They are
the things we aspire for each of our
students, s hortco m i ng s notwith-
A. Learn basic skills fsuch as
mathematics, for example,l
-- things that everyone must
know for ordinary successful
thing a pupil studies in school
has some connection herel--
recent adoption of vocational
agriculture in our school, for
C. Use leisure time properly lwe
stress "individual" sports such
as tennis in ourp. e. programl
D. Citizenship -- students man-
age many things "on their
own", the student council
functions many ways as man-
aging social affairs, elec-
tions, noon-hour recreation,
E. Health practices fwith em-
phasis on the PRACTICE, such
as first aid, taught with phy-
F. Home membership fa girl
learns howto cook and sew, a
boy how to repair home
gadgets in the industrial arts
G . Character education lsome say
intangible, yet what is re-
quiring a lesson to be well
done, or team-work in the
class or on an athletic squad?l
Some examples of NEW WAYS to
these obiectives, above, most of
them in addition to the tradi-
tional approaches are listed here.
No attempt is made to be complete
for obvious lack of space. Starred
items, ""' have an illustrative
photograph in this section.

"L, And does notend with gradu-
ation -- adults go to art or

M. ln all, our high school offers
37 different courses for credit
and I5 extra-curricular ac-
tivities in the fields of speech,
athletics, music, art, library,
audio-visual education, etc . ,
that include practically all
students in one or more of such
N . Standard tests are given at both
the elementary and high
schools levels to measure ac-
complishment and p red i ct
success in certain fields of
work, both while in School and
in vocations after school days

would permit, the many things that
contribute to good living in this com-
munity, for truly, as the inscription
over our high school entrance says:
