To our parents, who have built the foundation with their love and affection for us, to our teachers who have added to the already strong foundation with their many helpful suggestions and services, to the business and professional people, who have helped us in sup- porting our each and every activity, and last, but far from least, to the rest of the people, too numerous to mention, who have added the final sails to our ship by all of the little things which add up to the big things: by attending our school activities, by helping us in the drives we put on, by buying the things we had for sale, and all of the many, many other ways you have helped us. As we put them all together to form our strong, steady ship, and as we set sail on the sea of life, we want to thank you in our meag- er way for all you have done. To you, we dedicate this book as a means of showing our appreciation. To you we vote a heartfelt THANKS! '-"...":'..-"'f"- M ,a. 355951 ati 4, JAM Q Sponsored by THE 1955 ANNUAL STAFF A .

As time goes on and gone forever are our ' school days, perhaps a trip 2b02rd the "Panther Tales" will turn the hands of the clock back to this important and most en- joyable phase of our lives. If the "Panther Tales" accomplishes these things for you, it will have reached the destination it has set out for. T' I 3 jr.

Our completed high school-life ship would not have been completed without one of these portholes --- the truefifi meaning and feeling of sports. A good coach is essential in creating good attitudes, interests and good, clean, wholesome fun. We have been very 41' fortunate in having a coach such as you, Mr. Delmar Brenner, who truly have been a good M captain in helping to make your "crew" become "5 good sailors by leading us toward these goals You have been more than a coach to your bo You have been an understanding friend and have helped us to realize that in any game or meet, whether, it be a high hurdle in a track meet or a high hurdle in life, the winning score is not the most important thing. Good leadership is an outstanding factor in our Alma High School. Undoubtedly, good leaders will continue to be a part of our high school, but, Mr. Brenner, we will always remember with appreciation the guidance the billowy sea that lies ahead.

As an added chapter in our high school life we have certainly been a fortunate crew for we have had a wonderful, kind, loving soul never too busy to help us over the high waves when the sea was rough or to give a word of congratulations when the sailing was smooth. It has truly been one of the best chapters and yet it has been a chapter which which no other school in the whole world has had the good fortune to possess. That chapter is, of course, our own Miss Rowell, who has been a strong mast in each and every life of the students of Alma High School. Who else but Miss Rowell has always been there when ever a kind word of sympathy or a cheerful word of encouragement or just the old familiar sweet smile was needed? No matter where we go or what we do, we will never forget the sweet, loving, white- haired lady who greeted us with a smile and a lclnd word all through our high school career, As we sail away into the future, we may forget some of the chapters of this high school career, but whether the sea be smooth or billowy, there is one chapter we will always remember - the extra, added chapter which every school has not been as fortunate in having as we. 97 It is our hope that each time you take this memory voyage through the good ship "Panther Ta1es" that you will each time feel the re- freshing splash of pleasure and ac- Q complishments upon your ship of I good fortune, steering its way to- ward a successful future. On your I voyage to success, should you come upon waves which seem too high to hurdle, may a voyage aboard the "Panther Ta1es" remind you "We did it once, we can do it again." , I 1 I I I ,Q E.- Il ' I Q I ,ia A K ,w"'I F 'X' ' X ......
