The cheerleaders' duties include much more than just leading cheers at games and at pep meet-
ings: many hours are spent in practicing cheers and in planning pep meetings. Also, as a part of
their job, they must do all they can to promote good sportsmanship within the student body. Even
when the scores look discouraging, they must offer encouragement to the players.
"Whether you Win or whether you lose, we're with you, boys, We're with you."
In appreciation of a job well done, We, the class of 1955, dedicate our 1955 "Cyclone" to our

This is a preview of some of the activities of the elementary classes? It is only possible to have
a few examples of the activities they participate in other than reading, writing, and arithmetic.
The members of the kindergarten class have visited the fire station, dairy, and post office. In
one class after visiting the post office they made their own post office and used their mail boxes
for valentines on Valentines Day.
The first grade has had a unit on electricity in which they studied the uses and beginning of elec-
tricity. Close to the end of the year they plan to have a puppet show on "What Sally Saw." To end
the year with a big climax they enjoy a train ride to Cherokee.
The second grade has taken walks to help them in nature study. On these walks the children
notice leaves and other articles in our great world of nature. One of the second grades plan to visit
the hospital and learn the use and nature of hospitals.
The third grade class established a store through which to help the students in learning the
value of money and how to make change quickly and correctly. Each student took turns being book-
In commemoration of Abraham Lincolrfs birthday the fourth grade prepared a play about Lin-
coln and gave it for the third grade. Those in the play wore costumes which they found for them-
selves. Upon finishing a unit on Egypt, the class prepared a display concerning Egyut.
The one fifth grade gave a play on Daniel Boone to the other class. Those participating made
or found their own costumes for the play. The fifth and sixth grades enjoyed a joint Christmas
party. The activities included: a play, carol singing and special numbers such as dancing, vocal and
The sixth grade visited the creamery and saw the process by which butter is made. After com-
pleting this visit the sixth graders under the task of making butter themselves. They enjoyed eating
their butter spread on crackers.
The Junior High students enjoyed a skating party in Cherokee. To make the students more con-
scious of their grammatical errors, a project was started in which the students noticing errors made
by classmates, put the errors on slips of paper and then in a box. About once a Week the box Was
opened and each student had an opportunity to see the types of grammatical errors he was making.
The first few weeks the box was always full, but now only a few errors are found in it each week. It
seems we are really making an improvement.

We have entered several
teams in the judging competi-
tion and have left with high
honors: soil judging, the "sil-
ver emblem," Howard Lietz,
Leland Molgaard, and James
Otto shared this honor. VVe
got first in corn judging by
Milton Caboth, James Kirk-
holm, James Otto, and Bill Ry-
herd. Again, we entered the
livestock judging team, made
up of Vincent Moser, Lyle
Sandine, Ray Grienke, and
Ronald Murphy in the "Spen-
cer Livestoek Show" where We
placed fourth. In the Sioux
City Livestock judging we re-
ceived sixteenth place, which
was not bad due to the fact
that there were groups there
from three states. Vernon Hin-
keldey, Jim Kirkholm, Milton
Caboth, and Larry Huntley
were members of the team.
Our experimental plot
proved successful this year.
The cost of the two acre plot
was 3540.00 with a gross profit
of 314000. The F.F.A. paid
James Otto 50 per cent for its
care, leaving a net profit for
our organization of 3370.00
clear profit. Again this year
we sent several members to
the National Convention at
Kansas City. Those attending
were Dean Peters, James Otto,
Leland Molgaard, Howard
Lietz and Larry Huntley.

When four attractive sisters decide to run the family, it results in an uproarious
comedy. The four sisters, from the oldest, Ro-sc, to the youngest and mischievous
Tootie, are so concerned about their brother, Lon, and his romance with Lucille, a
snobbish Eastern girl, that they don't have time to listen to their father who wants
to tell them they're moving to New York, and will miss the Worl-d's Fair.
The girls take the situation into their own hands. Rose makes herself up as thc
queenly type and Esther tries to appear vibrant. Tootie is completely satisfied as long
as she is allowed to "jump out and bite people's legs."
When everything seems to be going the wrong way, Mr. Smith makes his an-
nouncement: f That he has been offered a better job in New York and the family
is moving at once! At the thought of leaving their home and friends, the girls in-
stantly unite for action! They resort to hilarious strategies that finally result in their
staying in St. Louis.

LIFE WITH MAMA
What a life it is! Every second there is something doing as laugh piles on laugh.
When the Old Reliable Drug Store ceases to be reliable because of chain store com-
petition Mama pitches in to help Papa. She nearly pitches the Smith family into the
poor house. But Mama has a philosophy. If you have faith everything will turn out
the way you Want it to. In the meantime keep busy. Mama won the cake baking blue
ribbon at the county fair and everybody Wants one of Mama's cakes. The laundry
business Mama starts gets her in a lot of trouble. When she does not have a laundry
license Mama goes to jail, Easy Street is just around the corner but Abigail, Mamas
colored helper, ruins the banker's favorite shirt and Papa does not get his loan to
remodel the drug store. Before it is over Papa and the banker spend the night in
jail. Mama's patent medicine soothes the bankcr's nerves and Mama's daughter,
Linda, elopes with the banker's son, Bruce. This is a pleasant and homey fast moving
play of American home life that entertains the audience from curtain to curtain.

SCARLET AND BLACK
During the past year many things have taken place in our school. We try to keep
the public informed about the most important activities through the Scarlet and
Black, which appears every two weeks in the Alta Advertiser.
We publish such things as editorials, class news, grade news, jokes, gossip, and
news from the various organizations.
There has been a lot of hard work done and we really appreciate it. We, the edi-
tors, would like to thank Mr. Alexander, our advisor, and the staff for all the help
which they have contributed to help make the Scarlet and Black a success.

Realizing that with a sufficient amount of practice anyone can mech-
anically drive an automobile down the road, but still not be a good driver,
we try to develop the know-how and attitudes which when combined with
this mechanical skill produces those safe, courteous drivers which make
our highways a safe and enjoyable place to drive.
During the course in driver training besides learning the mechanical
skills of driving an automobile, the students are introduced to the follow-
ing essential areas: When is the Car Ready to Use and ls It Operating Nor-
mollyg Physical and Mental Condition of the Driver in Relation to Safe Driv-
ingg The Drinking Driverg Pedestrian Safetyg Financial Responsibility of a
Car Control Adverse Conditions
Car Ownerg Buying o New or Used Carg Care of Your Carg Operating Your
Car Economicallyg Driving in the City and on the Highwayj Driving in Bad
Vtfeatherj Changing a Tireg and Your Responsibility as a Driver.
We realize that the limited amount of training which the students
receive in this one-semester course is not enough to make them competent
drivers. But it this basic training is continued through the help and encour-
agement ot their parents and friends, they can develop into sate drivers
and not become another heart breaking accident report: "JOHN AND
MARY WERE KILLED LAST NIGHT IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT ON

1954 JUNIOR-SENIGR BANQUET
The Junior-Senior Banquet was held Saturday, May 8, in the old gym at Alta. The theme for
the banquet was "Moonlight Bay." Entering the gym the guests stepped into a rowboat for a ride
to the main floor, The guests stepped out onto an island and entered into a harbor where a large
steamer had just docked. The steamer stood proud and stately with its double deck and manly
state-rooms. Toward the east was another ship coming into harbor. This ship was carrying the
orchestra which was to furnish the music tor the evening. To the north a volcano could be seen
in the silhouette and also an island on each end with rowboats and sailboats hurrying toward
the islands. Above the ocean, of course, was the clear, blue sky with stars shining and the moon
brightly beaming in the west. Sea gulls hovered overhead enjoying the cool evening.
The guests were led to their tables and served a delicious meal by the sophomores. The
waiters were dressed as sailors and the waitresses were in navy skirts and white sport blouses. On
the table were stearners made of construction paper with colored pennants and portholes. Each
guest had a nutcup that also served as a name card. These were small colored boats with sailors in
them and suckers tor oars. On each nutcup was an anchor which was given as a favor. The
meal was eaten by candlelightg the candles being decorated as lily pads.

The annual, colorful Homecoming festivities of this year began with a spirited high school group forming
the customary Snake Dance on the Thursday evening before the Homecoming game.
After a rousing of the townspeople in the business section, the "Snake" noisily moved to the south end
of the football field, where the traditional pep rally was held. The cheerleaders ably led the assembled
group in cheers and songs, and pep talks were given by Coach Sutton, Queen Beverly Bergquist, and King
Ray Sievert, The dummy representing rival Primghar was then thrown in the large bonfire by Ray.
The next afternoon the Alta Marching Band headed the Homecoming parade through the business dis-
trict. The multi-colored parade, consisting of the band, the floats, and the Queen and attendants riding in a
convertible, halted in the up-town center for a community pep meeting. Despite the fog which continued
throughout the day, all the floats appeared in order for judging, and the announcement at half-time during
the game publicly rated the floats as follows: Juniors, First, Seniors, Second, Sophomores, Third, and
Also during the half-time ceremonies, the Queen, with her attendants, appeared on the field to be
crowned by the King. The girls attending Queen Beverly were Margaret Anderson, Joan Anderson, Deanna
Breehwald and Lynette Mordick.
Although Alta lost the game to
a good Primghar eleven, the dance
after the game was well-attended,
and the serving of refreshments
brought the close to another success-
ful celebration of Homecoming.
