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 cheerleaders. 4,116 71 c'sZ'1-Q SCHOOL BOARD C, F.

It is only possible to have a few examples of the activities they participate in other than reading, writing, and arithmetic. KINDERGARTEN 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. FIRST GRADE 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. SECOND GRADE 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. THIRD GRADE 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- keeper. FOURTH GRADE 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. FIFTH GRADE 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 instrumental solos. SIXTH GRADE 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. JUNIOR HIGH 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. 21 VOCATIOIXI Front Row: Vincent Moser.

AL 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. F.F.A.

ECCDIXICDIVICS HOME ECONOMICS In Home Economics we learned how to be a better homemaker in the future. We learned to sew various articles such as: coats. suits, jumpers, dresses, skirts, and dusters. We learned how to prepare meals and fix fine desserts. Since the senior girls are graduating, they studied dif- ferent vocations, This helped some of the girls to choose their vocation for the future. The freshmen were new in high school, so they learned the Way to make friends and acquaintances. Th e y als o studied child care and home furnishings as did the sopho- mores. This year turned out to be a very profitable one for the teacher, Miss VVatson, as Well as the students. GIRLS' PHYSICAL G.A.A.

V incent Moser Grandpa Prophator Gene Shreve 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.

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. MR.

DRIVER 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 Parallel Parking Car Control Adverse Conditions TRAINING 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 HIGHWAY . . ." Care of Your Car Changing A Tire What Makes It Run JUNICDR-SEIXIICDR 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.

MUSIC ACTIVITIES The snappy Alta Marching Band under the baton of Majorette Carol Radke gave spectators very enjoyable half-time entertainment at all home football games. The Marching Band also put in public appearances at the Annual Football Preview on September T at Storm Lake, at our own homecoming parade on October 1, and at the Buena Vista College Homecoming Par- ade at Storm Lake on October 23. On October 16, the Marching Band journeyed to Sac City for the annual Marching Band Contest. The long hours of practice and work were well worth-while and quickly forgotten when we saw our I rating. VVhen the weather turns cold, thoughts turn from Marching Band to Concert Band, Mixed Chorus, Glee Club, and Musical Ensembles. Pep Band played at all home basketball games and preparation for the Christmas Program was begun. The Christmas Program was given on December 20. A repeat performance of last years successful "Night Be-- fore Christmas" was given by the Band and Mixed Chorus along with many other fine numbers presented by various musical ensembles. On December 23 there was "music in the air" as the Mixed Chorus went Christmas Caroling through the halls. The first day of the second semester found Miss Janet Anderson in the vocal music room. Although we were sorry to say "good-by" to Mrs. Alexander, we were very happy to have Miss Anderson with us. Concert Bands and Mixed Choruses from Alta, Albert City, and Aurelia met at Aurelia on January 24 for the first Tri-school Music Festival. The afternoon was spent in practice and the result of the practice gave the audience two hours of fine music in the evening. On February 21 the Concert Band presented an evening of light entertainment in their "Pops Concert." March 29 found the soloists and ensembles on stage for the presentation of the pre-contest concert. Contest for the small groups and soloists was held at Odebolt on April 1 and 2. Ratings were given on state contest basis as there is only one contest this year. DIVISION I RATINGS Instrumental Trumpet Quartet - Donna, Hoferman, Allan Schuelke, Duane Smit, Don Swanson.

FOOTBALL SQUAD HOMECOMING 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 Freshmen, Fourth. 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.
