This is our
Alto High School
This is our Big Record,
Through the use of song titles in our write-ups we have
captured many of the experiences that have taken their
place in our treasury of school memories.
Though we can not Turn Back the Hands of Time we
will always be able to hear memory's stream of tunes flow
over our minds as we look across each page and hear the
message that each groove brings to us in this, The Big

The High ond The Mighty
The administration section of our
school has helped all the students very
much. Yes, they are The High and The
Mighty and every individual student looks
upon them with great respect. They have
given us welcomed advice when we needed
help in solving our everyday problems.
They have taught us many things that will
help us when we graduate and get out on
our own. The High and The Mighty we call
them and they really deserve it.
Here's to the administration to help re-
mind them ot the Good Old Days.
lt you believe in Whistle While You
Work, That's Your Mistake - the next time
it happens You'll Get Yours. lt's said we
have Hearts ot Stone, but You'll Never Know!
It You Only Knew how The Old Professor Al-
most Lost his Mind. Hopelessly we Wait and
See Til Summer Vacation - They're Gone
With the Wind. Graduation - Oh What a
Day! So Long!

Students in the elementary grades are
Young and Foolish, but they are just
learning to make decisions for themselves
and they are meeting the world face to
face for the first time. While in school
they find themselves and realize their
abilities for the first time. Hobbies become
an important part of their leisure activ-
ities. The children work together to de-
velop cooperation, good sportsmanship,
and respect for their superiors. With the
guidance of their teachers this generation
is growing up to become the adults of to-

"You Are My Special Angel," the little girl
told one of the safety patrol boys. This probably
tells how most of the small children feel about
the safety patrol.
The safety patrol boys are on the job every
afternoon in all kinds of Weather are special
angels. They see that the younger children get on
the correct bus, are not running between buses,
and try to prevent accidents.
The boys are volunteers interested in promot-
ing safety. They elect from among themselves a
lieutenant and captain who work together in as-
signing boys to the buses and getting substitutes
if someone is absent.
There are two boys who take care of putting
up the school stop sign and blockades each morn-
ing and evening.
"Let's Make Music" is the thought ii every-
one's mind when they belong to the Junior Band.
The main goal of the Junior Band is to fur-
ther young students in their ability to play togeth-
er as a unit, and to explore and play compositions
written for the band. Here students are first
taught to listen to the other instruments and learn
to blend their sound with the others.
The Junior Band consists of sixth, seventh and
eighth grade students. Before a student can enter
Junior Band, he must satisfactorily complete an
elementary method book and have played his in-
strument for at least one year. Some exceptions
are made to this rule, as in the case of older Jun-
ior High students who have progressed more rap-
idly than younger beginners.
Each year usually in February, the Junior
Band presents their annual concert. This year the
concert was February 18.

"Whistle While You Work" is the motive of all
fifth and sixth graders. In fifth grade the students
read stories of other children, famous people, and
fairy tales. They read many interesting things about
our country - how it grew from a wilderness into a
strong nation, After studying communications they en-
joyed a trip to the newspaper office to observe how
our papers are printed. While the fifth graders studied
"VN the United States, the sixth grade learned about other
countries and the middle ages. The students construct-
ed a medieval monastary, church, and village. Their
studies proved to be a trip "Around the World in

"How Little We Know" is an expression
used by many fourth graders. They find that
they are learning more every day. The students
had units on Young Citizens of Early Days,
Young Citizens of Today, Wonders of Our
Times, Storyland Here and Now, and Famous
Americans of Other Times.
Science created a lot of interest among the
boys and girls, especially the units on the heav-
ens and magnets. After the unit on the heavens
we took a trip to Cherokee to the Planetarium.
Plays were given periodically throughout
the year. At Christmas the play "Christ's Birth"
was given and "The Life of Lincoln" was given

"School days, school days, wonderful golden
rule days. Readin', ritin' and 'rithmetic . . ." This
song typifies the work in third grade. The third
graders became more independent readers and
stories read came to life as they were dramatized.
Parents were invited to share a trip to storyland.
Along with reading the students learned to divide
words into syllables, tell which syllable is accented
in a word, and how to use prefix and suffixes.
Writing good sentences and friendly letters
and learning good telephone manners were topics
of interest in English.
Arithmetic found them progressing rapidly as
they learned to "carry" in addition, "borrow" in
subtraction, and multiply and divide by three. Tell-
ing time, counting money, and working with
measurements were also accomplished.
Activities correlated with social studies in-
cluded a Toy Centerville, Model Grocery Store,
Post Office, Indian Village, Book Clubs, Bird Feed-
ing Station, Tape recording sessions, and visits to
Peterson's Store, Alta Co-op Creamery, Post Of-
fice, and library.

The second grader's mind is full of "Young Ideas" and the student
has a genuine interest and desire to read. The children complete three
text-books that are accompanied by work-books and in addition read
four supplementary readers,
We aim to achieve in arithmetic further understanding of the
meanings and relationships of numbers. Here they learn combinations
up to eighteen. They learn number names and their meanings, value
of money up to fifty cents, and measures.
First Steps in English are the language readiness books. Its pur-
pose is to initiate the pupils into an awareness of language concepts and
the correct usage in written and oral English.
Social studies help the children to develop independence and in
solving problems involved in group living. Hello David and Someday
Soon are the two text-books used in this course.

As in the song "Little Child" the first graders
are full of questions and eagerness. They enjoyed
their first experiences in learning to read. In the
fall, leaves were gathered and properly classified.
Using food models they soon discovered the im-
portanee of a good breakfast. They learned many
things about the train, cars and the important part
they play in our lives. In the spring beans, car-
rots, radishes, onions, and flowers were planted in

A - Learning the alphabet and making an ABC and have to model objects out of clay.
Book was one of the projects of the year. D - Dramatization is like a great sport with them.
B - Before the end of the year each child can print They act out many stories, their favorites being
their first and last name to perfection. Every child The Three Bears, and The Three Billy Goats
learns to repeat his telephone number and address. Gruff.
C Y Creative work is stressed about twice a week E - Entertainment was provided for the mothers
and it seems to be the most exciting since it con- by the students. The 'main feature was presenting
sists of so many different things. The students finger-plays and songs they had learned during
paint, cut and paste different holiday ensembles, the year.

The Stroll through high school has
given the seniors ceaseless knowledge and

In the future, when members of the Senior
Class start strolling "Down Memory Lane," one of
their most remembered days will be Skip Day. As
they look back they will laugh at the complaints
they made when their parents roused them out of
bed so they would be able to make the bus. which
left at 5:00 A.M. The long ride to Omaha will be
Iorgotten and only thc fun on the bus will be re-
Everyone will remember the displays at the
Union Pacific Museum and Joselyn Art Memorial.
The tour through Brandies proved to be interest-
ing and the dinner they served was delicious. Many
had the experience of taking a plane ride, while
the others watched airliners land and take off. All
the girls were disappointed when their visit to
Boys' Town didn't allow them to see many of the
inhabitants. but the tour was interesting.
While not sightseeing, the class went shopping
and the purchased merchandise made everyone un-
comfortable on the way home. But even though
they were crowded, everyone was happy because
they had added another scenic spot along the path
"Down Memory Lane."

The last few weeks of school are hectic weeks
for the seniors. Many things have to be done now
or they won't get done at all. Invitations for grad-
uation have to be sent out. Those who haven't had
their pictures taken or haven't got them back are
wondering whether we will get them by gradua-
There are also a few dogs running around the
senior class and high school, trying to get as many
autographs as possible. These dogs are not real
dogs but autograph hunters called Personality pets.
The boys don't say much about getting a new
suit or a new pair of shoes but among the girls,
getting a new dress or a pair of shoes is the main
topic of discussion. Every outfit has something
different about it. Maybe it is the way it is made,
its color or maybe the thing that makes it different
is the way the senior describes it. There is a happy
look on their faces as they think of their outfit
and of the big day not too far off in the future
that will in some way change each of their lives.
Even semester tests aren't dreaded as much
because they are the last ones the seniors will have
to take in high school. A question that has gone
around the senior class these last couple of weeks
is who is in the top third of the class. Many wish
they had tried harder so that they, too, could have
been near the top.
Finally, with the last minute papers being
handed in and last minute parties and get-togeth-
ers, the last year of high school for the class of 1958
creeps to a close. The pleasant 'memories of the
high school years are folded up and packed care-
fully in a drawer in the back of the minds. and
dreams and plans for the future are coming closer

A Teenager's Romance was the theme of the
Senior Class Play, Strictly Formal, which was
given on Friday, March 28, in the high school audi-
The play begins when the Senior Prom is only
two weeks away. Jane Cutler and her best friend
Sally, tborene Peterson and Kathryn Sievertl still
have no dates for the prom. George Ahern and his
buddy Jim tCharles Dahl and Burton Johnsonl
haven't said a word about taking them. But their
worries are only beginning, for Sally's cousin, Mar-
cia from New York lDeanna Johnsonl snares one
man after another with the old "go-get-em" tactics.
Elroy tBob Kindwalll, who is constantly practic-
ing the shot put, is allergic to her tactics. The girls
get reinforcements, as Cindy Collins tFaith Obergl
arrives. Cindy is a movie fan and ready to solve
any problem on the basis of a movie. The movie
plots only complicate the real life problems. Cindy
"gets in Dutch" with everyone and finally gives
up trying to fix things. Then Elroy puts the shot
into the prize peony bed, and what started with
a mild worry about prom dates becomes a war of
dads and peonies, shot puts, mumps. and movies.
Other characters who aided in making the
play entertaining were: Andrew and Nettie Cut-
ler, Jane's parents CAI Miller and Sharon Lichten-
bergl, Agnes. the maid iJacque Ottol, Mr. Ahern,
George's father tGlenn Hartmani, the neighbors,

some wonderful times together,
As the seniors were choosing their careers,
they received a lot of information when they at-
tended Career Day at Storm Lake. Many repre-

them advice. Attending Skip Day was a lot of fun
and also was very educational. Each senior receiv-

"What is this Younger Generation Corning to ?" could very well
be the theme song of the Juniors, for it is the one thing most said
Their many activities keep the Juniors on the run. At basketball
games their expert management has kept the concession stand out
of the red. Among their successes the Juniors count their three one-
act plays, which were fun for all concerned, and the Junior-Senior
Banquet. The banquet was really the high spot of the year and
"social season." If it was lots of work, it was twice as much fun.
In school the Juniors are most often seen as they hurry be-
tween their numerous classes. Although a few brave Juniors are
taking five subjects, most are taking only four. Included in their
list of subjects are: geometry, where they have been learning how
to figure out which is up mathematically: chemistry, here they
learn the sanae chenncahyg shorthand, in this class, future secre-
taries learn an essential part of their tradeg business law, an edu-
cation for the students in their rights and obligations, bookkeep-
ing, of course, teaches future bookkeepers how to keep their books,
U. S. History, they have learned the history of the United States,
and have seen how our democracy is kept running: typing is impor-
tant for the secretary-to-be, but also any student finds it quite use-
ful: and speech and American literature, they have learned their
language, how to use it and how it is used.

"Could This Be Magic?" Are these last year's
Freshmen who now swing into high school activ-
ities and classes like veterans? Some of their steps
will be taken in the following subjects. Let's lis-
ten and hear how they are coming along with them.
In World History we studied about the world
from pre-historic times to the World Wars. His-
tory furnishes us with a better understanding of
the world in which we live.
We most enjoyed learning about living things
and the dissecting of worms, fish, and grasshoppers
The first semester of English we studied gram-
mar. We found that diagraming sentences was
very interesting and helpful. During the second
semester we studied literature.
The main object in Algebra was to learn how
to figure with literal values instead of numerical
values. All of the Algebra students enjoyed this

The Home Economics girls were occupied with
their cooking and sewing in class. For cooking they
learned to prepare foods for different types of
meals. They were very happy to help prepare and
serve the faculty banquet. In sewing the girls first
made skirts and jumpers. Next they made clothing
of their own choice.
In Agriculture the bovs learned about different
tools and used this knowledge to carry out various
There were also turn-about days when the Ag
boys took Home Ec. and the Home Ee. girls took
Ag. Since this was quite different from the sched-
ule every one enjoyed it a great deal.
One of the most anticipated courses offered in
the Sophomore year is Drivers Training. Before
actual driving takes place the pupils study the
mechanism of the car and traffic laws. This should
insure better driving habits.

These are the "Young At Heart" who
must now learn to adapt themselves to the
high school schedule. They will also begin
to consider what they wish to do in the
following years. This is the way they feel
about their first year in high school:
English, which includes spelling, has
often proved to us how much we misuse
our language and how we can improve our
speech and writing. However, we eventu-
ally get our fill of subjects and predicates,
objects and participles, so we have liter-
ature for the second semester. A book re-
port every six weeks and an occasional
theme or story are also part of this course.
Because of the conflicts in time schedules
the boys and girls are divided for this
The study of General Science covers
wild life, energy and space, and tends to
show us the complex things in our world
and universe. Frequent experiments help
demonstrate the facts which we learn
We really give our brains a workout
in General Mathematics class where we
learn almost everything that has to do
with numbers. Our teacher also adds many
new terms dealing with mathematics and
Girls who enjoy sewing and cooking
find Home Economics a useful and inter-
esting class filled with worthwhile infor-
mation and many new experiences.
While the girls are taking Home Eco-
nomies, the boys choose either Vocational
Agriculture or Industrial Arts.
Agriculture is mainly the study of
things useful to a good farmer. The boys
learn about building and using farm equip-
ment, They study livestock and get valu-
able information for use in future years.
The rest of the boys attend shop class-
es where they learn woodworking and use
the many new tools available. Here they
may become interested in carpentry or
other phases of this type of work.

The Alta Chapter is composed of 27 members.
This year we initiated 11 greenhands and 4 chap-
ter members. We have one Iowa Farmer, James
Otto, and we have another boy trying for the de-
gree this year. He is Burton Johnson.
The 1957-58 officers were President Burton
Johnson: Vice-President Harlan Hogrefeg Secretary
Merle Larson, Treasurer Jerry Ottog Reporter
Dennis Otto, and Sentinel Ralph Watts.
Our advisor, Mr. Polzien, is a 1956 graduate
of Iowa State College. He has helped a great deal
in making a success from a slowly dieing FFA.
Harlan Hogrefe had our chapter chain sow
this year. We received 6 hogs which sold for a
average of 20 cents a pound.
In December we harvested our corn. We sold
the corn to Barney Kindwall. Later the chapter
picked up the corn which the picker missed, we
then sold this corn to Burton Johnson.
Burton Johnson represented the Alta Chapter
at Sioux City. He toured through the stock yards
and appeared on the nightly T.V. market show.
The Chapter held a Parent-Son Banquet Feb-
ruary 28. About 70 attended the banquet with
Burton Johnson as master of ceremonies. The
chapter took their own movie which they showed
Our Parliamentary Procedure team and ex-
temporaneous speaker survived the Sub-District
contest. In the Northwest District contest both
groups ranked very near the top.
In- judging work this year the chapter also
rated very high. At the Sioux City four-state
judging contest, Alta's team composed of Burton
Johnson, Merle Larson, Jerry Otto, and Clem Le-
doux received a total of 27,964 points out of a total
of 32,000 Jerry Otto placed third in the swine
In general our chapter has improved very
much in the past year due to the help of our advisor
and by the cooperation of our member.

"Around the World in Eighty Days." To many
a dream would come true if they could take a trip
around the world. It would be an experience that
would be remembered through the years.
The 1958 Junior-Senior Banquet was held Sat-
urday evening, April 19. The gym was beautifully
decorated to carry out the theme "Around the
World in Eighty Days."
The entrance was decked with many colorful
travel posters and scenic photos of national land-
marks. As the guests entered through a make-
believe balloon basket, their first glimpse was of
a globe depicting the Western Hemisphere. Blue
and white streamers bordered the entry-way and
graced the ceiling.
The center of attraction was a huge 13 foot
balloon surrounded by blue angel hair represent-
ing clouds. It represented the balloon used in the
Michael Todd Production of "Around the World
in Eighty Days."
An Oriental motif predominated the east wall
and the stage. A three-dimensional scene consist-
ing of Oriental figures adorned the stage.
The polar, Pacific Island and desert regions
were depicted on the south wall. The Aurora
Borealis made a pleasing background for the var-
ious figures that symbolized the Far Northern area
of the world. The Pacific Islands were represented
by a scene from Hawaii. A volcano and a starry

Take Me Out to
the Boll Game
Take Me Out To The Ball Game is an
old refrain heard around Alta a great
portion of the year. Competing and train-
ing for athletic events is a vital part of
every high school student's life. Athletics
promote friendly competition along with
individual cooperative ability and good
sportsmanship. This helps to prepare the
student for the competitive world which
he will meet after high school graduation.

"All Shook Up!" was the wail of team after team
as they fell prey to our mighty Cyclones.
Our 1957 grid season was a very successful one
for the Cyclones, as far as the games that were play-
ed went. The last three games on the schedule were
canceled. Alta won four of the five games played and
finished in second place in the conference.
We opened the season against Holstein, who was
ranked eighth in the state. Paul Turnquist scored on
the third play of the game for the only score. Alta
won a well-earned 7-0 victory. Keith Smit and Roger
Peterson played good defensive ball to hold Holstein
The following week the Cyclones met Paullina
and came out of the battle with a 20-6 win. Jerry
Sandine played fine defensive ball as he threw the
carriers for repeated losses.
In the third game, Alta lost to Primghar 7-0. The
statistics were about the same for both teams, but
Primghar scored on a long pass in the second Quar-
ter for the game's only touchdown.
Alta won the fourth game, defeating Sanborn 25-
2. Gordy Radke led the Cyclones on offense. Keith
Smit played good defensive ball.
The Cyclones 'net Sutherland in the annual home-
coming game. They scored a 46-13 victory. Larry
Lichtenberg scored three touchdowns as the Cyclones
walked over Sutherland with apparent ease.
The last three games against Aurelia, Hartlev,
and Milford were canceled because of flu. This left
the Cvclones with a good 4-1 season.
' Jerrv Sandine and Keith Smit were placed on the
Sioux Valley All-Conference team. Roger Peterson
and Gordon Radke were on the second team, with
Larry Frantz, Marlin Cone. Larry Lichtenberg, and
Paul Turnouist receiving honorable mention. San-
dme was also placed on the all-state fourth team,
with Kelth Smit receiving honorable mention.

On Thursday night, October 10, 1957. we had
si parade led by the football boys who rode on the
back of a truck. The queen. Jennie Ann, and king,
Roger, occupied seats of honor in this parade on the
front fenders of the truck the football boys rode on.
After the truck the band came. They were a little
bit behind because they lacked the horsepower that
the truck had to give it get up and go. Following
the band was the student body, ready and willing
to lend the band some of its steam. Following the
parade a pep meeting was held by the light of a big
bonfire which the Junior High football players
built. At this pep meeting was a dummy represent-
It was "One In a Million." Like stars on a
summer night, there is one that out-shines all oth-
ers. One of our brightest stars is the one that shone
on October 11, our Homecoming. To the Seniors,
especially and to all the student body. its bright-
ness surpassed all others. The preparation for this
night began around two weeks ahead of the actual
game. At this time the classes are choosing the
themes for their floats. Although it is a lot of fun
to put a float together, the kids know also how
much work it is and how much of a hole it puts in
their class treasury.
ing Sutherland, and, since there was such a beau-
tiful bonfire the three coaches, Mr. Clawson, Mr.
Beals and Mr. McCoy could not resist the chance
to give him a hot seat. so in he went. This symbol-
ized what we were going to do to Sutherland Fri-
day night at the game. There were pep talks given
by .Mr. Hammond and the queen, Jennie Ann
Smith. During her pep talk Jennie introduced her
attendants: Lorene Peterson, Senior: Kathy Radke,
BuENA vlsTA MUTUAL iNsuRANcs Assoclniow
FRESHMAN FLOAT, "We're Small But
SENIOR FLOAT, "We'II Hatch A Victory"
Junior: Doris Johnson, Sophomore, Sharon Huse-
man, Freshman. Then the football boys bowed low,
worshiped their king, Roger Peterson, and yelled,
"We want Rog." Due to this persuasion Rog came
out of the crowd and gave a good pep talk which
satisfied his worshipers. This put an end to the
pep meeting but it was not the end of work on the
floats. Some classes still had a lot to do on theirs
so off they went to finish the job.
Friday morning there were many sleepy heads
in school. At midnight the students finished work
on the floats and then, since it was the end of the
six weeks, they had to go home and study for tests
till the wee hours of morning. When it was about
time for the parade. everyone appeared a little
brighter because of the excitement. The members
of each class strained their eyes to see if their
float was coming, and if it wasn't they began to
wonder if maybe it had fallen apart before they
could get it there. Finally, however, everything
was assembled and ready to go. Leading the par-
ade was the band followed by the king and queen
and her attendants, next came the floats, in order
of the classes with the Seniors first. On Main street
the parade stopped for the pep meeting. The king,
Roger Peterson, gave another pep talk as did Mr.
Samuelson and Mr. Melander. After the pep meet-
ing the band led the parade to the school house.
They decided they would lead the floats past
the hospital and show them to Mrs. Clawson, the
coach's wife and to the coach's new son, Charles
Junior who, so his father says, is going to be a
spin-back as soon as he can. After this the kids
headed home for a brief rest before the game.

That night at the game you could tell this
was something special. The Seniors were ready
to make it a night to remember since they would
never again play at Homecoming. At the half
time the band entertained with a few songs and
formations. Then came the big event, the arrival
of the King and Queen, her attendants and their
escorts. They were: Seniors, Lorene Peterson and
Jerry Sandine. Juniors, Kathy Radke and Robert
llinkeldey. Sophomores, Doris R. Johnson and
Gordon Radke. Freshmen, Sharon Huseman and
Myron Radke. Next came the crowning of the
queen and king. The hand played a fanfare to an-
nounce the queen's coming. There was silence as
the king crowned the queen and when the queen
crowned the king. After the ceremony the king
escorted the queen back to her car, followed by
her attendants and their escorts. After the half-
time the game continued and ended with Alta on
top making our homecoming a bigger success.
For the homecoming dance the Seniors got
"The Rhythm Knights", a band which everyone
enjoyed. When the dance ended there were many
tired feet but happy people who were glad to see
the week come to an end. Many were sad because
this was their last homecoming, but they knew
they could not have asked for a better one. Home-
coming really ended when the last float was rob-
bed of its last decoration. Just like Cinderella
when the clock struck twelve.
