SENIORS VISIT OMAHA
ON SKIP DAY
At 5:00 A.M. thirty-one sleepy eyed Seniors and our sponsor, Mr. Ham-
mond left for Omaha.
We stopped at Denison to stretch our legs and eat breakfast.
Upon our arrival in Omaha we visited Boys Town. We got to see their
trade school and huge field house. All of us were quite impressed by the
size of Boys Town.
Our next stop took us to the television station KMTV. We were very
lucky to see one of their live colored shows. After a tour through KMTV
we had a few hours to go shopping.
At noon we were guests for dinner at the large Brandise Department
Store. A delicious meal was served.
The high point of our Skip Day took us to Offut Air Force Base. After
a guided tour on the base, we were told the history of a jet trainer and we
got to look into the seating compartment of a jet.
On our way home we stopped at Missouri Valley for supper.
A group of tired Seniors who had enjoyed Skip Day very much arrived
in Alta at 9:00 P.M.

Probably every high school student has dreamed of being prin-
cipal for a day! NO MORE HOMEWORK is the successfully tested
and colorful account, suggested by a newspaper story, of what
actually happens when circumstances propel three students into the
roles of principal, vice-principal, and school secretary at Ames High
It all begins because Principal Lundquist just has to be away to
speak at the State Principals' Convention. Miss Dill, regular school
secretary, has a terrible cold and insists on going home for the day.
The vice-principal, Mr. Obermayer, is confined to his bed with a high
fever. Then it is that Mr. Ames, school board president, decrees that
the student council officers shall take over for the day. And that's
how Pamela Jones becomes acting-principal!
She gets off to a bad start when, in trying to buzz for the jani-
tor, she rings the fire alarm bell instead. Then she has to decide
whether to stand behind an unpopular teacher and whether to keep
the schools star athlete out of the State Basketball Tournament. Not
the least of Parn's worries is good-natured "Buzz" Bailey, acting vico-
principal, who grandly advises a gossipy student that "There will be
no more homework!" Then theres Faversham Lightly Jr., who would
rather sleep than eat - and spends most of his time doing both! To
add to Pam's grief, the "home ec." teacher is lateg and Shalimar
Ames, her hated rival, turns on her honeyed charm to lure the reluc-
tant "Buzz" into taking over the class - with some truly astonishing
And finally, with the school play, "Rusty Wings," set to open
that very night, she loses the key to the trunkful of costumes.
However - complications are convincingly resolved in the end.
Shalimar's conspiracy to implicate Pam in the robbery of the play-
ticket money is exposed, much to the dismay of her pompous father.
"Rusty Wings" takes an unexpected flight of success, with Pamela
starring. Even the audience finds itself playing an unexpected part!

SENIOR CLASS PLAY
Inner Willy is off to college - relentlessly goading poor Will-
oughby into becoming a man. Of course Willoughby needs just that
sort of character around. Having led a sheltered life with his three
maiden aunts, he's become about as spineless a creature as ever there
was. In the college dorm, he's the one who makes the beds and lends
the money and clothes tuntil he hasn't even a pair of trousers to wear
when his aunts arrive to visitJ. That is, until Inner Willy materializes.
Then gradually - very gradually and painfully - Willoughby begins
to act like a man.
Willoughby has the makings of an athlete, a star football player,
but he insists that he comes from a Ulong line of faintersf' And be-
sides, there's always the danger of a smashed nose and broken bones
and all. His three aunts agree, they even decide college life is too
strenuous for their frail boy and insist that he return to the home
town. And he would have gone, too!
But there is a certain blonde -- a college newspaper reporter, no
less - who tries to encourage Willoughby to stay and become a hero.
The college rooters, too, put the pressure on him, and of course
there's Inner Willy, who twits and tortures the poor fellow with jibes
likeg "Water on the knees, you know. The family tree had weak
Small wonder then that Willoughby finally decides to stand up
to his aunts and announce that he's going to stay and play football.
Even those doubtful demurrers are happy when they see how striking
Willoughby looks in a football suit. Most wonderful of all is pretty,
blonde Sally's reaction - well - not quite as wonderful as Inner
Willy's disappearing act when he sees that the outer Willy has shed
his shackles at last!

The Alta Juniors were hosts for the annual Junior-Senior Banquet and
Prom which was held in the school gymnasium Saturday, April 30, 1955.
The chosen theme, "Under the Big Top," had the characteristics of a
circus. On one wall was Silly Sam's Side Show. It consisted of a juggler, a
strong man, sword swallower, fat woman, magic man, fire-eater, and two
barkers, all of which were painted figures fastened to the wall to appear as
the picture in front of the large tent.
Across from the side show were three stands. One was a fortune teller,
a place to have your pictures taken, and a game of throwing rings and win-
ning a prize.
act, and side rings were made up of a seal act and a lion act. The background
for this was a parade of two elephants, an ostrich, two cages of monkeys and
on horse-back, and a large bear.
streamers and two large clowns decorated the stage. The ceil-
attraction was the three ring circus. The center ring was a dog
lions, a girl
ing was made of multi-colored streamers of red, green, white, blue, and yel-
low. It draped so as to resemble a circus tent. In the center, it reached a
peak, where the balloon bag hung.
The entrance was of white lattice work in a lover's lane style. Red
hearts hung from the streamers with the names of the Juniors and Seniors
A merry-go-round was the center of attraction. It consisted of red,
white, and green polka dot horses which revolved in the center of the merry-
Pink lemonade was served at the pink lemonade stand.
The tables were very colorful with merry-go-rounds as center pieces.
Colored horses on the merry-go-rounds
were used as place cards. Circus animals
were the favors, and pink, green, yellow,
and red animal nut cups were also used.
After the delicious three-course ban-
quet dinner, which was served by the
"Barker and Clown" waiters and wait-
resses, a short dinner program followed.
The guests enjoyed dancing to the
music of the Tommy Thomas' Combo until
11:30, after which a balloon shower fol-
lowed. This concluded a very beautiful
and successful Junior-Senior Banquet.

The Juniors of the Alta high school were hosts and hostesses
to the Seniors at the Junior-Senior Banquet on April 21, 1956, at
'I p. m.
The entrance was composed of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
displaying the banner entitled, "Garden of Fantasy."
The coat check was made up of latticed blue and white stream-
ers, with an arched doorway entwined with pink and red carnations.
The side sections of the south wall depicted a storybook theme
from Disneyland, The characters shown were Uncle Scrooge: Donald
Duck: Grandma Duckg Daisy Duck: Huey, Dewey and Louieg Mickey
and Minnie Mouse: Pluto, and Lady and the Tramp.
The antimated section displayed the scene of Minnie talking to
Goofy in front, of a little cottage. Uncle Scrooge, Grandma Duck,
the three nephews, and Pluto by his dog house were spectators
to the scene.
A sloping grass hill led to the stage. "Welcome Seniors" was
spelled out in colored carnations on tne green slope, A stairway,
bordered by rocks and flowers cut through the center of the hill
and led to the stage. A statue of Donald Duck at the top of the
steps resembled a master of ceremonies, A white fence entwined
with colrred flowers bordered the stage, The ceiling consisted of
French Blue and Light Blue streamers,

The punch stand was decorated as an old stone wishing well,
complete with the old oaken bucket.
The north wall continued to carry out the storybook theme of
Disneyland. Horace Horsecollar, Donald Duck. the three nephews,
Pluto and the two little pups and Goofy thumbing a ride were all
traveling the winding road to the Fantasyland Castle.
The west wall was a. beautiful forest scene including green trees, a
waterfall and colorful mountains. Many forest animals, a mountain
pool and lovely flower beds completed the scene.
Dumbo, the flying elephant, winked gayly at the guests from his
perch high on the west wall of the gym.
The center of attraction was a beautiful blue and white fountain
in the center of the dance floor, Out of the high stone center
flowed showers of sparkling blue water.
The waiters and waitresses wore costumes resembling those of
Peter Pang green shirts, yellow pants, and bright colored hats with
9, feather in them. These waiters and waitresses served the banquet
dinner and acted as hosts and hostesses at the open house held
on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
The music for the evening of dancing was furnished by Jimmy
Smith and his orchestra. At intermission, a minstrel show was pre-
sented by sixteen freshman students. A very enjoyable evening came
to a close at 11:45.

The Cyclones started the season at home by losing a hard
fought battle 19-13 to the Maple Valley Champs, Holstein.
Alta's inexperience in the line was the determining factor.
The Cyclones then started Sioux Valley Conference play
with Milford. They were defeated after a hard fought game
They then played Paullina, who eventually won the con-
ference title. The Cyclones used everything in their power
to win, but finally fell in the last half 7-6.
Alta started their three week homecoming series of two
away and one at home. At Primghar the half time score was
6-0 in favor of Primghar, but a determined team took the
field and tied the game 6-6. This was the final score.
Alta, after spoiling one homecoming, journeyed to Sanborn
with hopes of spoiling another one. The Cyclones lost 18-O.
Our Homecoming proved to be successful by downing
young, inexperienced Sutherland 21-6.
Then the annual Alta-Aurelia battle proved to be a losing
cause in a 27-6 defeat by a strong, fast Aurelia club.
The Cyclones rebounded to defeat Hartley 20-13 in the
final outing for the year.

The Homecoming activities of this year were a huge
success. Homecoming started off Thursday evening at 7:00
as the student body gathered for a snake dance beginning
at the school house, progressing through the business dis-
trict, and ending at the football field where pep talks were
given by Coach Sutton and Queen Karen Stille. Following
the tradition, King Bill McDonald burned the dummy
representing Sutherland, our opponent.
The following afternoon, a parade was sponsored in
which four floats were entered. Placement went as follows:
Seniors - first, Juniors - second, Freshmen - third, and
Sophomores - fourth.
During the half of the game, Karen Stille was crowned
Homecoming Queen of 1955 by King Bill McDonald. At-
tending Miss Stille were Joan Anderson, Senior Attendantg
Linda Enderson, Junior Attendant, Lynette Mordick, Soph-
omore Attendant, and Sherrill Peterson, Freshman At-
Following the game, a Homecoming Dance was held
in the school gym sponsored by the Seniors. Music was
furnished by Tiny Rice. Refreshments were served at the
close of the evening by the Senior Class.

Jerry Mills headed the early drive. Larry Zwemke

Don Swanson booted the extra point to put the Cyclones
in front 7-0. Bill McDonald passed a long toss to Chuck
Ford and the Senior hauled in six points. Don Swanson
again kicked the point and Alta lead 14-0. Chuck Ford
caught a beautiful pass from Bill McDonald for the locals'
final points. Don Swanson made it a perfect night with his
third conversion and a 21-0 Alta lead. Sutherland passes
counted for the Tiger tally.
