School reorganization has finally become a reality. It has taken countless hours of planning and has thrown a considerable i'extra" burden on Superintendent Laing. But the hours of hard work for the many people involved have paid rich dividends. It is another advance in the long historical march to make education truly demo- cratic and provide equal opportunity for all. 29 Color photo work courtesy of Nels Isaacson and Reproarts Engraving Company of Fort Dodge.

Larry Christensen and Bill Fain were the front line pitchers and the receiving chores fell to Doug Meyer and Donn Hutchins. With a decent break the Bulldogs could have gone a long way but the warm weather pitching stall ran into trouble on a cold and blustery day at Bancroft. Jim Galbraith, Dave Devine, Bob Harms and Loren Nelson rounded out the infield. Don Cook, Darrold Simmons and Cf-ne Helms-rs worked in the outfield. Simmons and Devine were the only seniors lost from a fancy club that would become even more stylish next year. 52 wggggk K 1 ll l ,Al E f' ff Wm In the Bulldog dugout, eyes left.

L'Allegro Julie Bourne and Kirk Hayes have now become well known for their duets. Julie's clear soprano tone blends well with Kirk's rich tenor voice. With Shirley Maxwell accompaining them, they have sung such songs as "Will You Remember" and "The Desert Song." The entire community has been charmed by their singing, and will miss them next year. Soloists A newcomer this year is contralto Nancy Amon. Although she is only a sophomore, her voice shows unusual talent. "Still Vie Die Nacht" was her selection for the Spring concert. The seniors were honored to have Nancy sing "My Heart Sings" at the Senior Banquet. vw--rf-A 'X Janie Lewis, a senior and a third year soloist, again proved that she could go far with her music. Her lovely soprano voice was heard in several selections this year, in- cluding "Lullay my Jesu," and 'The Lord's Prayer." Senior Kirk Hayes, a tenor, has touched the hearts of the people with his wonderful voice. This is his second year as a soloist and he sang such songs as "0 Holy Night," and "The Desert Song." Kirk also sang in duets and was first tenor in the Boy's Quartet. First tenor Darold Stevens has honored us with "You'll Never Walk Alone," and "Comfort Ye My People." He has done solo work for two years, and will be hack to help us out next year. 71 N X x x W X N ' X 1rwwMSwwgNwwmw X ii Vocal Snaps D Q EMERGENCY Hey, wait until I vomh my hair! ' A ,A r' .

Junior Class Pla Our Miss Brooks, the drama production of this year's Junior Class relates the trials and triumphs of a high school English teacher as she strives to bring a polished performance of a class play out of a caotic situation. Anxious moments are in store for Miss Brooks as play rehearsals conflict with the basketball practices of athletic coach Hugo Longacres, who has caused Miss Brooks to be struck fatally by Cupid's arrowsg an important mem- ber of the play cast has an acute attack of appendicitis the night of the final performance and a valuable and irreplaceable vase, belonging to a snobbish lady f Mrs. Allenj is smashed to smithereens. All of these problems plus the way in which everything miraculously works out smoothly before the curtain falls on the final scene equals a hilariously enjoyable play. Our Miss Brooks, acted by an excellent cast under Mr. McDowell's competent direction, was received by the entire audience as a first rate production.

It involves a senior high school boy lWillyl who has been pampered by his three old maid aunts throughout his lifetime, and his "Inner man" who "Came in on a Burp," arriving just in time to teach Willy to "Assert himself" and declare his inde- ps-ndence from codliver oil, turnips, and Harvard, Princeton and Yale-and his aunt's future plans for him. The sympathetic remarks made by the three aunts provide a humorous background, and Willy's frustration as he finds himself with three dates for the Senior Dance adds to the general confusion. Fate brings about a happy fairytale ending, with everybody happy. v Skillyfully stearing the cast through the usual play rehearsal and pre-performance catastrophes, Director Mr. McDowell, assisted by a capable crew, made The Inner Willy a praiseworthy production. lift l0 fillhtf Dirk Inner Willy and Willy: Dick Kuecker Left to right: Janice Klooster, Calvin Tschetter, Kuefkef- Pauline Lenz, and Calvin Tschetter, Barbara Zweifel.

"Be it ever so humble there's no place like home," kept singing its melody in our hearts. The years had slipped by so quickly and we were startled to see how changed everything was. Were those parking meters in front of the State Bank, and is that Ken Potter, dignified and every inch a banker? Oh, isn't the new court house beautifull A real addition to our town. Will this ever be a good place to check the progress of members of our illustrious class of 1954? It is a warm day along in May and so we decided that before we go any farther we will drop in the drug store for a coke and a good chat. We've heard that Mike Streit is a soda jerk here. He tells us that Betty Sloter, Donna Ramus, Lorraine Rich, and Sandra Hudson are home from the service. He also tells us that Jim Bunkofske and Ted Hansen are in partnership on rocket research. While Dave Devine is now a professor of Chemical Engi- neering at Ames. While we are sipping our cokes in come Pauline Lenz, Zoe Clegg, Lillian McAdams, Rose Ann Rich and Marilyn Roeder from their secretarial jobs for another "coffee break." Also among the group we recognize Joyce Miller, bookkeeper, Sharon Ringsdorf, Naomi Strayer, Joan Alexander, and Marilyn Kuhn, all telephone operators. We find Kirk Hayes and his wife, the former Julia Bourne, have set themselves up in the insurance business while Julie teaches piano lessons on the side. Also in our music world we find Shirley Maxwell playing the organ at the skating rink. Speaking of careers, Jack Scobba and Chuck Steil decided that the Navy wasn't so bad after all and are making it their life's work. Darrel Simmons has returned to marry Alice Patton. Jerry Parkins is now owner of what used to be Sorenson Buick renaming it "Perk's Parts Shop." While Terry McGuire has taken over management of "Dig 'Em Construction Company." Joy Hutzell is winning the hearts of her patients while working in our local hospital. Barb Hurn, we hear by way of grapevine, is at Rochester working with polio patients. As we drop by the high school we find Jackie VanderWaal, who is now teaching English in our local system. She conducts us on a tour of the building and as we pass the vocal music room, we see Janie Lewis struggling manfully tor discipline during a boys' chorus practice. Passing the auditorium door, we hear quite a bit of racket. Jackie informs us that it is only Sheridan Strayer, the dramatics teacher, trying to have Jr. High play practice. Who's that we see in shorts? Why it's Barb Zweifel, the gym teacher. She also is building up a good girls' basketball team, we are told, in Sexton. Going to the Annex we see Ted Trunnelle, Vocational Agricultural instructor, telling his boys the benefits of contour plowing. M'mmmm-that wonderful smell of onions coming from the cafeteria. The cook, I wish I knew her married name. is now Trieva Bowman. They say she really dishes out the concoctions. Gwen Hendrickson was helping but left to join her husband, who is in the Navy. Asking some of the high school teachers, we find that Jan Klooster, Dorothy Hagg, Lois Riebhoff-now Mrs. Cal Tschetter-are all miraculously pounding information into the heads of elementary youngsters, especially in kindergarten. lt seems a few of our former classmates have children in that class. Let's see who they are. Why, Janice Kickbush, now Mrs. Joe Funk, seems to be quite active in P. T. A. work. inquiring of an old classmate, we hear that Larry Johnson is now running "Bowling, Beverages and Billiards," formerly Barry's. Don Elbert still loiters around that familiar spot on Main Street dropping philo- sophical remarks to passers-by. Sauntering down Main Street we find a boy standing on the street corner yelling "Extra, Extrafi This arouses our attention and we discover that one of Algona newspapers is just off the press. Its editor is Bill Dewel. And here is "The Dizzy Crack" and we read that the Mayor of Algona is now Judy Simmons and the Chief of Police, Ken Teeter, spends his time standing on the corner blowing his whistle at the juvenile delinquents. Janet Scuffham, the owner of "ScufIie's Saddle Sage" is doing a thriving business turning Shirley Holdren, Pat Simons, and Darlene Seiler and many others into leading horse women. She also had some of her famous horses win in the Kentucky Derby-adding to her fame and her bank account. In the professional entertainment world we find Ron Harlan, now traveling with Jimmy Lynch's Dare Devils. He will be at the Kossuth County Fair this year, Bob Palmer, prominent cigar manufacturer told us. We read also in the paper that Flip Miller is beating Ben Hogan and will soon hold the championship. Also in the professional world we find Duane Hansen, the mighty wrestler. He now holds the championship in the middle weight class. The paper said something about a Farm Bureau meeting. Letis check into that. Well . . . Dick Kuecker is president and Chuck Bjustrom vice president. Must be really prospering with two such well-to-do farmers. Leaving the building we meet Wendell Christensen and Marvin Dearchs, late-comers to the meeting. It seems that Wendell now owns half the county and is fabulously rich. Our class also has a serious side. We find Jane Dearchs is now doing social welfare work. Also Eleanore Sparks is president of the "Wigs for Bald Eagles Clubv still holds the interest of her members with her lengthy speeches. Wasn't there an article in the paper that went something like this: 4'Button Sewing Club to meet at the home of Ardis Gardner."? I wonder if she is still teaching people how to sew on buttons the correct way. lsn't that a service station over there? And look who works there-Amand Dangelser. Maybe while he puts some gas in the car, we can catch up on some of the latest. He tells us that Jan Bjustrom has taken over manage- ment of Grahamsg Ron Gerber is making money hand-over fist in the Implement Business, Herb Adams delivers milk for the Algona Creamery and Jon Rising stands on street corners blowing up balloons for children-a trying occupation. Dave Yeoman, the local KSMN man, is almost ready to come on the air with his 12 o'clock edition of the news of the Associated Press. Bon Elbert, we heard over the air, giving a lecture in Carnegie Hall on UHOW to Paint Water Colors." Bob Lampright, the mortician, has run all others out of town and is doing a flourishing business.

At that time the old Algona Independent School District ceases to be. This is a result of a school election held on April 26, 1954. This article attempts to give a brief story of: why this reorganization came aboutg how it came aboutg what changes in our school are occurring as a result of the reorganization. Why was the school district reorganized? Basically the movement for reorganization began about two years ago when the board of education of the Independent district realized that the present facilities for elementary school pupils were not sufficient to care for the non-resident elementary pupils in the years immediately ahead. How did this reorganization come about? Briefly, a series of public meetings of interested school patrons was held in the respective rural school districts and in Algona to discuss the above problems. Eventually these meetings resulted in the drawing up of territorial limits in the surrounding rural districts so that the majority of those people wishing to be included were contained within the boundaries of the proposed new district. After the various hearings required by law before the county board of education, an election was called to determine the will of the people. In the second election for this purpose which was held April 26, 1954, the proposition was carried by a majority vote in each of the school districts involved. Accordingly, plans were made to institute the new district on July 1, 1954. 107 What are some of the changes involved in the setting up of this new Algona Community School District? 1. The area of the original Algona Independent was 14 sections including the town of Algonag the area of the new district is approximately 146 sections. 2. The valuation of taxable property on which school taxes are to be paid in this district is about 14 million dollars, whereas the valuation under the original Algona Independent was about 7 million dollars. 3. The entire school enrollment Kg-12 grade inclusive next September in this new district will be approxi- mately 1450 pupils, of which none will be "tuition or non-resident" pupils. That is, the district will no longer be collecting tuition from the surrounding rural districts since the entire bill will be met by the general tax levy for the whole district. The above enrollment includes about 300 pupils who were formerly classed as tuition or non-resident pupils. 4. We will still operate school buses as before. Next year we are planning eleven bus routes to transport approximately 450 pupils.' We hope to make these routes compact enough that no pupil will need to get into a bus before 7:45 A.M. 5. One uniform school tax levy will be made over the entire area. It is estimated the school tax next year will be not in excess of 30 mills. 6. The present school curriculum will be maintained with some additions. One addition is that of distribu- tive education in the high school vocational field -this essentially is a training program for those students who will start upon graduation from high school at making a living in occupations that involve selling goods or services. 7. The teaching staff will be increased next year by eight members, 7 of which are in the elementary grades to take care of the added elementary enrollment. The capstone or apex of any school district in Iowa is the Board of Education. In accordance with law, the board of the Algona Independent district and the rural boards automatically end their terms on July 1, 1954. In May 1954 a new board for the reorganized district was elected to serve as follows: One year term-Mrs. Veda Murtagh, Robert Black frural membersl Two year term-C. W. Stillman, Paul Hurn Crural membersj Three year term-Perry M. Collins 108 s -iii 1 5, gg-H 'r -. ,gh . 25 -rv f LLM. , f..,, P1- 53, w " .1 .S X V, V -.
