Mainly a school is teachers and students. The trouble
is when you get so many teachers and so many students things
get pretty chaotic and somebody has to put the jig-saw puzzle
It's not any easy job. There are mountains of paper
work, bills to pay, schedules to plan and on and on. These
are things which our administrators do which we too often
take for granted.
A school is like a shipg the pilot, our administration.
With steady hands on the wheel and sure direction from the
conning tower, it makes for smooth sailing.

It is fortunate that we have people in our community who are
willing to devote their time and effort toward making our high school
a better place in which to learn. School board members, who serve
without pay, work long hours atboard meetings with the superintendent
to determine school policy in relation to the needs of the community.

Our chairs are vacant, soon there will be other occupants in seats we so
capably filled. But we will not soon be forgotten. No, not because some of our
narms are carefully inscribed on the desks, but because we too, following the
example of our predecessors, have amply contributed our share to the school's
history. Whether it was in sports fwill our basketball team be forgotten next
yearikj music or dramatics, we will long be remembered in our achievements
in everything we chose to enter. When we pass through the doors for the final
time we will not become a race of forgotten men, but will go on to even greater
heights, giving our best efforts to the world as we have to our school.

We may be the smallest class in high school, but that doesn't mean we're completely out
of the picture.
Remember the float that took first place at homecoming: ? And who can forget the spectacular
display of talent given by the sophomores in the FreshmanhSophomore play, "Girl Crazy."
Backing our teams all the way, our class was represented by four cheerleaders, Maribel
Kain, Sharon Powers, Pat Van Allen and Darlene Skogstrom.
On the teams we had Ted Finley, Ron Zittritsch, Jerry Downey, John Moxley, Darrell
Davis. Fred Strahorn, Larry Wicks, Larry Wyatt, David Kohl and many others.

The injury-ridden Bulldogs got off to a slow start this season. The loss of regulars, Ron
Zittritsch, Loren Nelson and I ack Amon hurt the team seriously. The team came to rely on Doug
Meyer and "Shag" Cook's crushing power to keep them alive.
Bill Fain at the controls tossed pass after pass into the awaiting arms of ,Tim Galbraith.
Don Cook's crushing line plunges, long runs and all around spirit led the team to a respectable
4-5 record in stiff competition.
The season was about at an end when the Bulldogs really came alive. All the bad breaks
of the first part of the season were gone. First Algona deflated a good Swea City team 34-20
and then went on to what Coach Guzowski termed "the best game of the season." They romped
pastHumbo1dtl9-12 and Iowa Falls 20-13.
The highlights were the major victories over arch rivals Emmetsburg and Humboldt.

The band masses to puff the air with strains of "Sweetheart of Sigma Chi." The climatic

The sharp night snaps out at the stroke of midnight as large crowds attend the homecoming
dance. Even though the Bulldogs dropped the game to Hampton, the evening was a whopping success,

Coach King's Bulldogs experienced an outstanding year as they won the North Central Con-
ference with a 12-2 record and by going to the final game of the sub-state to be downed only by
Ames' Little Cyclones who went on to win the state crown.
Six men sparked the Algona team through the season. Larry Christensen notched scoring
honors for Algona followed closely by Doug Meyer. Nidas Dermand was one of the outstanding
set shooters in the state. Jim Galbraith held down the other forward position. Pete Langmack
saw considerable action, taking over for Meyer in the pivot slot. Don Cook, sensational guard
of the Bulldogs, proved to be the top center player, his defensive work and outstanding front court
play sparked the Bulldogs all season.
Christensen and Cook were selected on the North Central Conference first team while
Dermand and Meyer made the second team. All five of the members made the All-State honor roll.

Coach Martin's wrestling squad suffered from inex-
perience. Only two lettermen returned from last year's
squad. Stan Hansen and Harley Troutman were the only
seniors on the squad. The squad won its last meet for the only
victory of the season. They finished with a 1-7 record. Only
one member, Eugene Helmers, survived the preliminary match
in District Tournaments.
Next year they hope to have better luck and with the
superb coaching of Mr, Martin we know they will.

Baseball boys started workouts in the gym due to a March snow storm, but moved
to the fairgrounds as the snow disappeared.
There were six starters back. They were Don Cook, Bill Fain,Larry Christensen, Doug
Meyer, Bob Harms and Loren Nelson. The rest of the team filled out with young lads,
Harvey Peglow, Dave Kohl, Vernon Christoffers, Eugene Helmers, Eulan Schuller, Bob
Slobe, Ted Finley, Duane Kueck, Larry Kueck, Larry Hutzell, Jerry Lewis, Jerry Rupp,
Howie Funk and Dave Richardson.
Christensen and F ain held down the hurling position with some help from Peglow
The boys went through a season with 6-3 record. In the district tournament Algona
defeated LuVerne with a rally starting in the sixth inning.
Our hopes for state tournament were dashed by the '54 State Champs--Corwith.

Although Coach Martin's cinder kids were not cinderella young-

in spades, was the high jump cavorting of Rodney Kickbush, the shot
putting of Fred Strahorn and Bill Moxley, and the mercurial feet of
Ronnie Ditsworth, Jerry Downey, and Ron Zittritsch.
At the Estherville relays the Bulldogs experienced the bright
spot of the year as they finished third behind classy Spencer.
Next year, as the young Bulldogs come on, most observers be-
lieve that A1gona's track backers will have something to shout about.

Trying to put together a concert band after losing your first chair players isn't
an easy task but "Gus" did a pretty good job.
The concerts they have seem to come up so quick. They had about four weeks to
work for their spring concert music. When the time came they showed the audience
that was all the time they needed. After one week's practice the drum trio really pounded
out "Haskell's Raskells." It was so good they even played it as an encore.

In the fall have you ever noticed some of those kids coming in the
school with mud all over their shoes or they might look real hot when
it's cold outside. These are the kids in marching band. Rain or shine
they practice. If they don't practioe at the old athletic field then they
do on the gravel road east of the school. They have about one week
or less to work on a program, and they really surprise everyone in-
cluding themselves when it comes half-time at the football games and
everything goes off perfect. Sure their music might go flying across
the field or they might go down the wrong yard line, but the people in
the stands don't notice these little things.
The kids in marching band really deserve some credit. Don't
you agree it would seem funny not to hear the school song coming from
the big "A" out on the field?

If you happen to pass the music room sometime after one and hear Strange sounds cotning
forth, don't be alarmed. It's only mixed chorus. ln spite of Mr. Carver's complaints that the
sopranos screech and the tenors are flat, the chorus, under Mr. Carver's direction, gives excellent
performances that are well received by the public.
For the first time, the Pageant was not included in the Christmas program this year.
Oitstanding song of the evening was Christiansen's difficult, "Lamb of God."
A great deal of staging was used in the spring concert. The songs were divided into groups
and an appropriate background made for each group. A few chorus members acted out the songs
while the chorus sang. "Ecstacy", "Dark Water", "September Song", and many other numbers
were included in the program.
Other activities this year were singing for the service clubs, the Charity Ball, and a trip
to Humboldt for the Festival.
All things considered, it's been a very profitable year. Hats offl to Mr. Carver.

Would you like to be in Mr. Carver's shoes at 12:45 on Tuesdays? That's when he has Girls'
Glee Club. Have you ever heard a noisier bunch of girls? You would never believe that from this
same group you could have such a lovely blend of voices as they had when singing "Nocturne,"
Considering the amount of time they had to practice, "lfca's Castle" and "Let My People
Go" were superbly done.
Although they only appeared twice, those two times will still be fresh in the minds of the
people who will come to the concerts next year.

The Syrnphonettes, formerly the L'Allegro Club, are a

the help of Mr. Carver.
The Symphonettes always appear in formals and open with
Browning's stirring"TheYear's at theSpring." Other numbers
in their repertoire include: "Tea for Two", "Speak Low",
"Strange Music", "O Holy Night", and "Ave Verum." Their

working hard along side of Mr. DeMouth and the annual staff to put out a good yearbook.
President Shirley Lowman, Vice-President Dick Vipond, SecretaryJudy Lowman, and Treas-

attention when outstanding photographer, Dave Phillips covered and took some excellent shots of
the basketball boys in their ascent to sub- state play.
Like anything else the club is not all work and no play. For instance, smuggling coke and
doughnuts into the dark room can be risky if caught, or a good double exposure is always good for
The club covered all activities as well as educating new members in the photographic field.

For their first project they sponsored a Better Breakfast Week and took
a poll of the students' breakfasts. At Christmas time they went carolling at the
County Home and also made stuffed toys for little -children.
The F.H.A. and the F.F.A. had a dance club. lt helped everyone in pre-
paration for the prom. They learned everything from the waltz to jitterbugging to
At Easter time they made Easter baskets for the hospital patients which
were greatly appreciated.
Then, of course, throughout the year they helped add to their treasury by
serving at banquets at the Annex. Topping the year's work was the spring picnic.
All in all, the girls, under the sponsorship of Miss Nutter, really did a

tion of a French flag, the pledge of new
members and making dolls dressed to
represent different French provinces for
the school's spring exhibit.
The members try to live up to

mote interests in French.

The senior class play, "Time Out for Ginger," directed by Mr. McDowell,
concerned a small town banker's daughter going out for the boys' football team.
She made the team thus making her sisters lose their standing among the jtmior
and senior girls.
Ginger's boy friend tries to persuade her not to go out for the team and
so does everyone else except her father. The big day comes when Ginger gets
put into the game with three minutes left to play. The other team laughs so
hard that they can't even stop her from making a touchdown. She gets ridiculed
so much she decides she would rather act like a girL In the end even her boy
friend forgives her.

UNIOR CLASS PLAY
The lights dimmed, people hushed and to the strains of "The
Halls of Ivy" the curtain opened on thelunior Class Play, "Mr. Co-Ed."
Lotus Smith, the long-lost grandchild of the wealthy Cobina Col-
gate Brewster, is expected to arrive at the select girls' school at any
minute, and save the school fwith the grandmothers moneyj from the
Lotus turns out to be a boy, and Miss Pooleyfan extremely ath-
letic gym instructorj and the poetry spouting Miss Carr are nearly
driven to distraction trying to prevent Mrs. Colgate Brewster, who
has never seen the child, from finding out she is not a girl.
But the school snob, Ruby, manages to spill the beans and the
story is out. But all is not lost. Cobina is smitten with the janitor,
Lotus falls for Emily, and Cedar Hill turns co-educational to the delight
of the students, and secretly the joy of the old maid teachers.

This year's F reshman-Sophomore play, directed by Mr,
McDowell, was "Girl Crazy." It was the lilting comedy of
how a playboy from the city, Danny Churchill, played by Larry
Wicks goes to the deserted Buzzard Ranch in the old West to
live for one year. His romantic interest is the local post-
mistress, Sharon Powers. Richard Schmidt helps add laughs
to the play as he plays the part of the cabby from the city that
brought Danny to the ranch. Opposite the rather reluctant
cabby is Karen Hutchins who plays a boy-crazy girl who's
after a husband. Johnny Moxley as the outlaw adds intrigue
to this exciting comedy put on by the two classes.

On a wintry night, a game of chess
The conference play, directed by Mr. McDowell, "Which is the Way to Boston" was
given at the Hampton festival where one-act play troupes from all of the schools par-
ticipated. The AHS group also attended the State Dramatic Festival at Iowa City.
Included in the cast were Sharon Powers as Mary Harvey, Larry Obrecht as Chris
Harvey, Ailene Quaday as Martha and Herb Schmidt who was John Harvey.
According to a legend an old man would knock at doors on stormy nights and ask
the way to Boston. Shortly after this there would be a death in the house. It was a
calculating play leaving one to wonder whether or not suspicions might not carry a germ
of truth along the way.
Before the sadness, laughter

The annual staff, when you get right down to it, was made up of about 15 people.
There is a lot that goes into the making of an annual. You need people to sell it, take
pictures for it, do the write-ups for it, type it and just put it all together.
This year with the wonderful help of Mr. DeMouth and Mr. Stevenson we had about
three or four people who could take the pictures and then develop them. We had a good
sales' manager and a few people who would sell the annuals. About two typists were all
we could round up and then the co-editors put the whole thing together.
We think these 15 people have dcme a wonderful job and we hope that next year's
seniors can do just as well.
Pete Langmack is not pictured.
He was at home working on this.

The year is 1979, the 125th anniversary of the founding of our fair city. We are at the fairgrounds
having a big celebration for the occasion. Most of the graduates of A.H.S. that were in school during the
Centennial are here again reminiscing "the good old days."
There's the Kossuth County surveyor Chuck Palmer at the ticket window, and if it isn't Ron Rochleau
directing traffic. I'll bet he's soliciting votes for his "Herd of Farm Voters" he organized. There's the
Secretary of Agriculture, Eulan Schuller over in the other lane with Joe and Harley Troutman. Joe del-
ivered the longest filibuster in the history of the Senate the other day. Harley was opposing him on the
bill.--Darn traffic.--Oh! Ohl Here come three teachers from the Algona system. Miss Carol Thompson,
principal of the new grade school here, Miss Beverly Gerber, an elementary teacher, and the prominent
Miss Dorothy Gade who has been elected "Teacher of the Year" by the National Education Association.
l thought Marlene Gade who is an anatomy professor at Vassar, and Adel Herbst who is an organ teacher
at New York High School of Music and Arts would be with them but I didn't see them.
I'd better be getting to the grandstand if l'm going to see all the entertainment. Why there's Jeanne
Capesius. She's a buyer for Sac's on Fifth Avenue. You guessed it--gunny sacks. And the stately Nidas
Dermand over there, he's the professor of Greek philosophy at Harvard now. Ronald Bilyeu and Dearme
Eisenbarth are over by the concession stand. Ron is owner of Ron's Rapid Restaurant, a short order
place in Des Moines. Deanne is running a tea room here in town and runs a farm on the side.
Ahll Here's a good seat for the program. Well I guess l'm a little early. There's Drusilla Opheim
the new mayor of Sexton. There are several of the girls that have come up from Des Moines. Shirley
Sorenson is a secretary for a travel offioe, Jane Reid also a secretary and bookkeeper for Banker's Life
and Casualty Company, Marilyn Kearney and Sharon Gregory working at Younkers in Des Moines, Four
rows down are four more of the fellows. Dennis Olson is busy developing a new type of bean plant with no
vines, Arlen Benschotter has an orange grove in California, Harold Bosworth is a rancher in Wyoming,
and Fred Erickson who struck oil digging post holes on his farm near here.
Ahl Here comes Gerald Hanson, who is the chairman of the Kossuth County Fair Board, to welcome
everybody. First on the program is David Bunting who came from New York to play for us. What does
that say? -- "Groan and Grunt with David Bunt." Bill Fain's jazz band with Phil Anderson at the piano
and Alvin Christiansen on the clarinet was supposed to be here but they're tied up in New Orleans. Next
Kay Brayton from Hollywood will direct a short play in which Ruth Shierk, who has just given her first
recital at the Met, will star as Madame Flutterby.
Let's take another look around here between acts. There are the co-editors of the magazine "Don't
Go Overboard," Karen Kuchenreuther and Betty Peirce with their copy boy, Charles Harmon. Down another
row is Phil Schneider who is playing end for the Los Angeles Rams, and Jim Galbraith who is owner and
manager of "Gabby's Galloping Galoots" anindependent basketball team. Next to them is Larry Christensen
who is author of that new best seller, "Out of School Halls, lnto the Pool Halls." Rumor has it that he has
been seen lately with the National roller skating figure champion, Paula Schmidt. Over here to my right
are several more ot the girls of that Class of '55, Lorraine Braun who is at last the "brains" of the Braun
School for Backward Books, Cleone Crawford who is Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, Gwen Egel
who just finished her fifth face at Rushmore's Memorial, Myrna Fries a beauty operatorwin the new Iowa
Hotel, Beverly Hovey who gave up nursing a while back because an old man ran her down with his wheel
chair, Kathryn Hutchins and Betty Ringsdorf who are both models in Chicago, and on the end is Marilyn
J asperson who owns a baby oil factory in Kansas City.
Next on the program is James Klemrn who is following in the footsteps of "Pinky" Lee and Dick
Davis the second Burl Ives. Who's that taking pictures down there? Why it's Shirley Lowman photographer
for the New York Times. Gee, there's another group of the graduates. There's Jackie Laing secretary to
the F.B.I. Next to her are Mary Shore a nurse and Janice Lundh an X-Ray technician both at Rochester.
Bev St. John and Marge Mittag are secretaries and Betsy McConnell who was "Miss America" a few years
ago are there. Donna Powers, who is putting the power into Power's models and Ailene Quaday who is
writing verses for Halmark greeting cards arenext. Richard Shipler just gave a talk on the National Guard
in the defense of the U. S. to conclude the program for the afternoon.
Whew, boy it's hard getting out of those stands. What's all the commotion over there? Oh, you might
know it's a group of girls wanting "Shag" Cook's autograph. He's taken the place of Marlon Brando in
the hearts of women. Lynette Rutledge, manager of a new dime store, is one of the girls. Standing with
"Shag" is Pete Langmack a cartoonist for pocket books when not busy engineering. Perry Hagg who has
been wimiing sports car races with his Ford on the Pan-American Highway with Don Schaap, his mechanic,
and Darrell Steven who just ran the four minute mile. Mmm--five-thirty. l'd better start home. It's
too bad the rest of the '55 class couldn't be here. Ed Broesder is driving a taxi in New York, Judy Sorenson
is touring Europe in a Buick sports car, Evelyn McKim is teaching U. S. Army Personnel's children in
Germany. Jack Amon is in a motorcycle race in Chicago, Jack Norman is a big game hunter in Africa,
Neil Anderson is a chemist for DuPont laboratories and Rose Dangelser is a yodeler on her show from
Del Rio, Texas. Whoopsl Better be careful, there goes Pat Etherington, the first woman on the Iowa
Highway Patrol. I'm just hurrying home so l can watch my favorite TV programs, "What's My Line?"
with Karon Downey and Stan Hansen on "Ghost of the Town." Bye.
