STANDING: Be rnadine Heathman,
Gerald Scammon, Duane Tolonen,
Mary K. PortchSlTTING: Lorraine
and Lorretta Castensen.
Just a note to tell that when we started to high school we were just as green as
you were, but look how good we turned out to be!
First off, we found ourselves bowing to every upperclassman, polishing shoes
and even ducking our heads in a pan of cold water just for some apples. After all
this excitement of initiation, we settled down and elected Duane Tolonen-President,
Lorretta Carstensen-Vice-President, Mary K. Portch-Secretary Treasurer,
Lorraine Carstensen-Reporter, and our advisor was Mr. Downie. For activity we
held the Freshman Return party for the Sophomores.
When we entered the school house as Sophomores, we had a little better idea of
what to expect. Nick Campbell was elected President, Duane Tolonen-Vice-Pres-
ident, Lorraine Carstensen-Secretary, Lorretta Carstensen-Treasurer, and Mary
K. Portch was our class representative to the Student Council. Our biggest event
was initiating the Frosh. We hald a food sale and had parties at various member's
homes. Mr. Gillmore was our advisor for the year.
The Barn Dance started off our Junior year. Our Junior Prom with the theme
Moonlight and Roses was held with the gym decorated with picket fences and
roses. A moon shone on these decorations. Goin Modern was our class Play
presented in three acts. The last event of this year was the Junior-Senior Banquet.
Officers for the year were President-Nick Campbell, Vice-President Ron Mallory,
Secretary-Treasurer-Lorretta Carstensen, Reporters-Carolyn Frenn and Berna-
dine Heathman, and our representative for the council was Duane Tolonen. Mr.
Pfiefer was our class advisor.
As Seniors, we entered the doors of A. H, S, for the last time, White Christ-
mas was our theme for the Senior Ball held in December. Our play Men are
Like Streetcai-s was presented during the year. Class officers were Millard Jones
President, Duane Tolonen-Vice-President, Carolyn Frenn-Secretary, Mary K.
Portch-Treasurer, Lorraine Carstensen-Reporter and Gerald Scammon represent-
ed us at the student Council. Mr. Sanders was our class advisor. Ron Mallory
left us to join the Navy in January of this year.
Our class Motto is Don't Dodge Difficulties and colors are Blue and White.
The Senior Class sincerely hopes your high school days will be as full of fun
and successful as our four years in good old A, H. S.

We, the Senior Class of 1956, being in our right mind do bequeath, leave, give
and get rid of the following things to all of the lowly creatures left at A. H. S.
To the teachers go the memories of our talents and tabilities.
To the underclassmen we leave our good manners, abilities to get into trouble
and our way with teachers.
I, Lorraine Carstensen, leave my ability to go with the boys from WSC to
I, Nick Campbell, leave my basketball ability, Student Body President job, and
ability not to go out with girls, to David Williams.
I, Lorretta Castensen, leave my ability to go with out of town boys to Sharron
I, Duane Tolonen, leave my basketball ability to Roger Williams and my height
to Sue Goss, hoping she can gorw a little taller.
I, Mary K. Portch, leave my job as annual editor to Susan Sutton and my good
grades to Dennis Buddrius.
I, Gerald Scammon, leave my football ability to Gary Hyde and my height to
I, Carolyn Frenn, leave my ability to go steady in high school to Magie Frederich
and my brown eyes to Dennis Herdrick.
I, Millard Jones, leave my Znd. base position in baseball to Fred Hyde and my
ability to keep my mouth closed when it should be to Hank Benson.
I, Bernadine Heathman, leave my driving ability to Mrs. Dunham to teach the
underclassmen next year and my long hair to Betty Farrelly.
We, Lorraine and Loretta, leave our vell queen position to Susan Sutton and
Adelia Benson and our sax quartet positions to Roger Williams and Gary Hyde,
hoping they can help continue getting superior ratings at the contests.
I was sent on an assignment by the FBI to find the missing persons of the Class
of 1956 . They graduated with me a long Z0 years ago, but I knew their ambitions,
and from there I went to find them.
I boarded a plane and started for the Air Force Headquarters. The General
walked up to me and it was General Millard Jones. Millard always did talk about
2 years of college and then the Air Force. I guess he carried out his plans. We
had a good talk and then I left for Spokane.
I landed in Spokane and went to the Sacred Heart Hospital. When I walked in,
there was an Admiral from the Navy. He turned around when he heard me and it
was none other than Duane Tolonen. I guess he got his wish. Haven't I seen that
nurse somewhere before? Yes, that's Mary K. Portch. It seems that she is a
registered nurse and Admiral Tolonen had his men all checked by her.
When I left the hospital, I walked down the street and looked up just in time to
see a sign, Lorretta's Beauty Shoppe. I graduated with Lorretta Carstensen,
who always wanted to become a beauty operator. I went inside and made an app-
ointment and when I left, I asked her about her twin sister, Lorraine. She gave
me an address to go to.
When I got to this address, I knocked on the door and a little girl answered.
She told me her mother was inside. Yes, that was Lorraine Carstensen, who
married a farmer after four years of college and is now a busy housewife and
I left Lorraine s house and decided to travel to Almira. When I got near the
town, I noticed signs all along the road saying something about Gerald's Shop.
I remembered Gerald Scammon and wondered if that could be him. I pulled my car
into a parking lot and went over to where many people were standing. I edged my
way through the large crowd and ran into Gerald with a big cigar in his mouth.
When we were in high school, Gerald always worked at Flick's but I understand that
Mr. Flick sold and Gerald became owner.
I left Gerald's Shop and went up to the school house. This brought back many
memories. I looked in one classroom and there stood a teacher reading to the
second graders. I took another look and noticed it was Bernadine Heathman. I
knocked on the door and we chatted for a while. I found out that she began teaching
after four years of college.
I got into my car and started to Spokane. When I arrived, there I noticed quite
a few ladies being attracted to something. I parked my car and went to see what
this was all about. When I got in the middle of the circle, there stood Nick
Campbell, another member of the class. He is a playboy in Hollywood, California.
But he travels to Spokane every weekend. He still hasn't found the right woman,
but taking a look around here, it doesn't look like he has too far to go.
I left this mob and walked on down the street. Coming into view was the Old
National Bank. I went in and looked around. One of the workers was Carolyn
Frenn. It seems that they need a secretary to do some work and Carolyn landed
the job. She always did talk about becoming a secretary.
After getting over the shock of seeing all these people, I crawled on a plane
and reported back to the FBI. Everyone I saw seemed so happy and very

a big success. The

October Z8 was our barn
dance. We carried out the theme
of a barn dance with hay, corn
stalks, and saddles. Next was
our two record dances after the
Davenport and Reardan games.
Our big thrill was the Junior
Play, March 20. Right at Eas-
ter time we had our Food Sale,
with many good things to eat.
Later in the Spring when the
weather permitted we had a
carwash. It was a big success
and lots of fun besides. Our
last activity was the JUNIOR-

Punch Bowl Orchestra
A wonderful time was a comment of the couples who attended the Annual
Senior Ball and danced to the music of Dick Soss and his Orchestra on Dec-
Carrying out the theme of White Christmas , the gym was decorated with
many fir trees ladened with snow. A big tree in the center of the dancing area
was decorated with ice cicles and blue bulbs, There were gifts under the tree.
The theme was put on the east end of the gym surrounded by boughs and
colored lights. The punch bowl was decorated with lights and angel hair with
fir boughs. The red punch with dry ice made a very spectacular sight. Diana
Rettkowski and Jill Sutton served this punch during the evening.
Acting as hat and coat checks were Janet Hyde and Cheryll Litt.
