H Y FOREWORD High school days are happy days, filled with memorable experiences, laughter and good times. High school days are full of hard work as we strive to develop ourselves, and try to achieve what we want to be. As we grow older, we'll forget some of the good times and savor only the best. This, our yearbook, will then be our only tangible record of the happy days of our youth, days that we can never live again. The only way that we will then be able to retrace these times, will be through this book. We've tried to recapture some of the fun, the laughter, and the hard work that went into our years at Alta High. This, then is our record. -1,- :bl 4 TABLE OF CONTENTS Events and Organizations Administration Seniors High School Athletics Music Elementary 5 21 27 37 45 53 63 'F' S' Q W..-U, During the year . . .

Merle Lar- son, Gordon Radke, Marlin Cone, Clayton Porter, David Fiiedrich Editors Sherrill Peterson and Martha Becker and the staff advisor, Mr. Fuller, directed the 1959 Cy- clone publication. Financial affairs were handled by the business managers, Susan Norton and Keith Smit with Dick Wilt and Jane Endreson as their assistants. The staff members worked diligently throughout the year capturing and recording memorable events. This year the students canvassed the community for annual sales. The community responded whole- heartedly and the goal for the annual sales was reach- ed. Dianne Schuler and Dennis Radke were crowned King and Queen for selling the most annuals. This year there are more pages and pictures than in previous years. Another added attraction in this year's annual is the tinted pictures. The annual pre- sents a record of the year's activities and pictorial re- view of the students and their school life. VVe hope that each one of you will enjoy the 1959 Cyclone. Pictures were taken by Buntrock and Salie Studio of Storm Lake. VVe wish to thank everyone who had a part in making the annual a success.

They won all four of the games they played. The bas- ketball tournmaent was also won by the Juniors. League bowling was one of two new activities started this year. Teams were set up and competed against each other for the title. The trampoline team was the second addition. The girls worked toward performing at basketball games during next year's season.

Exactly opposite were the difficulties of Puff lDave Friedrichl, the schools star athlete. Unless he was able to raise his grades sufficiently, he would be declared ineligible for the conference track meet. Eventually the two boys found a way to help each other out. Dan volunteered to tutor Puff if Puff's friends would agree to assist him socially. The girls, played by Karen Kraemer, Karen Ankerson, and Con- nie Lichtenberg, decided to go along with the plan. Although this arrangement included hypnosis, dancing lessons, I.Q. tests, a class pin and parsnips, everything culminated successfully.

Sophomores are required to take world his- tory which involves the study of the history of man from the beginning to the present time. Also re- quired ore one semester each of English and Lit- erature, which when properly understood, can be- come very interesting. One of the most interesting courses sophomores take is driver education where they are taught to drive correctly by both actual driving and class work. Sophomores can also take algebra, there they learn to think in terms of literol as well as numeri- cal values. ln biology, sophomores study plant and animal life ln home economics and agriculture they learn to be better homemakers and farmers. Since the classes have become so large the biology, world history, English, and driver educa- tion courses are divided into two classes Besides studying, sophomores are active in many extra-curricular activities Some of these ore athletics ffootball, basketball, and trackl, G R A, vocal 'ond instrumental music, F FA,, F l-l A, drill team, pep club, newspaper staff, and annual staff Once a year the sophomores sponsor a party for the freshmen This year it was a roller skating party, which everyone enjoyed ln return, the freshmen sponsored a party for the sophomores The sophomores had a lot cf fun working on their hcmeccming float, which had the theme Down Tc Defeat lt received a third place rat- ing Eight bcvs and girls are chosen each year to serve at thc Junior-Senior Banquet in the spring Home Economics SEWING ALGEBRA Harry Melelndffr Karen Lis-In Diane Holtz Daphne Holmes Bell Huseman Rlchzlrd Krenmen 7 1 r,?

Ilonzilfl M05--r Q FRESHMEN ACTIVITIES The freshmen started their high school edu- cation with four subjects. One of their subjects was General Mathematics, this is the ground work for algebra or other mathematical courses, Mr. Arnold Hammond, the mathematical instructor, taught them how to do basic equations, find areas, and other helpful mathematics. English is another of their required courses. Mr. McKinnis teaches one half of the class and Mrs. Norton the other half. They are instructed on how to diagram sentences, write short stories, and grammar. The second semester is occupied with literature stories which proves very enjoyable, General Science proves interesting for all the scientific minds of the class. Mr. McCoy and Mr. Beals share the teaching with each having one half of the class to teach. This year they are learning of electrical devices, the atom and its many parts, also chemical formulas These are very interesting because of the experiments that go with them ex- plaining science further. The freshmen girls all are taking a course in Home Economics which is lots of fun. The year is divided into parts by Miss Kundel, their teacher. Some of the parts were sewing, cooking, baking and other helpful things, ln the middle of the year they had a party for the kindergarten with the theme StoryIand. The freshmen boys have their choice of agri- culture or industrial arts. ln agriculture they learn of the kinds of feeds, cattle, and other animals. Mr. Polzien, the teacher, is a great help to their understanding this. Mr. Beals teaches the indus- trial arts class. ln this class the boys learn how to make tables, follow plans, and make changes in plans. These all are courses taken by the freshmen class. The freshmen do not lack activity. Every year the sophomores give the freshmen a party. This year it was a roller skating party, and in return the freshmen gave the sophomores one. Also, this year they had the fun of putting together their first float. They found that they need planning and working together to make a good float, As individuals they could enter in mixed chorus, band, school paper, annual, and many other activities, The high spot in their social life was when they were asked to help with the intermission pro- gram for the Junior-Senior Banquet.

Winning tne Sioux Valley Confert-nee Crown, was no douht the biggest thrill for the entire foothall squad. They put their heart into the game and realli enjoy:-d playing. Although with a number of Casualties, the boys retained their high spirits. The only loss of the season was to Holstein which was a non-conference game.

They lost many close games and were Constantly under a terrific height disadvantage. The boys aver- aged under 5' 10 while many of their oponents averaged over 6' O . To make up for their lack of height they had to hustle and work hard. It was a rare occasion when the Alta team was out-hustled. Alta had a knack for getting fired-up for the big games. The big one of the year was the Aurelia game, Aurelia, averaging nearly 6'2 per man, was a heavy favorite to trounce Alta, but the Cyclone hustle and fire kept us going until we fought to a 50-49 vic- tory. This was the situation throughout the year, the boys were up and down all year. XVe didn't have a really prolific scorer this season, but we had more even scoring than we have had for many years. Larry Litchtenberg. second team All- Conference last year, was the scoring leader with 207 points and a 10.9 point per game average. Merle Lar- son was close behind him with a total of 180 points and a 9.4 point per game average. Norman Peterson, Kent I-Iuseman, Gordon Radke, Keith Smit, and Paul Turnquist were all close behind in the scoring column. Despite our lack of height and low shooting percent- L -5 1.

AI Mrs. Waldo ,H Iv v SEVENTH GRADE JUNIOR HIGH ACTIVITIES Junior High is the period of growing up and the preparation for high school. It means longer hours of study, more homework, and longer assign- ments. Mr. Greene and Mrs. Waldo teach seven or eight subjects each day. The students have several enjoyable exper- iences. The boys, coached by Mr. Hammond, par- ticipate in competitive football and basketball games with other schools. Four cheerleaders are elected from the seventh and eighth grades. These cheerleaders conduct pep meetings each afternoon before a game. The girls enjoy sewing, cooking, good grooming, baby-sitting, and family relations from the home economics teacher, Miss Kundel. Many of these activities may seem hard and tiring to the students, but they will always remem- ber them.

They elect from among themselves a captain and lieutenant to guide them and assign them to the busses. The uppermost thought in their mind when on duty is to prevent accidents. They do this by preventing small children from running and crossing the street between busses. Two more boys are assigned to put up and take down the stop sign and street blockades. JUNIOR HIGH CHEERLEADERS JUNIOR BAND The main goal of the Junior Band is to further young students in their ability to play together as a unit, and to explore and play compositions writ- ten 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 Junior High students who have progressed more rapidly than young beginners. Each year usually in February, the Junior Band presents their annual concert. Front row: Bobby Williams.

Extra curricular activ- ities included vocal music, physical education, and Junior band. Extensive use of the dictionary was made in Reading and Diagnostic Tests following the com- pletion of each text. Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals and fractions, along with story problems were included in units in arithmetic. In English, the language arts-listening, speak- ing, reading, and writing were correlated. .mf .M ' 4 '14-M-IDR V -QQ, .. , Geography, the first semester, was a study of The Eastern Hemisphere. One of the highlights of the year was viewing colored transparencies of the countries we had studied, shown by Mrs. Gus- tav Fossell of Holstein. Our mothers were invited and refreshments were served, History, the second semester, was an interest- ing study of ancient civilizations, each contributing much to the world. Murals were made to depict various phases. Sound, plants and animals, weather, and elec- tricity were favorite subjects in science. Various experiments were proven. Card weaving, water color painting, block printing, and designing were done in art class. .

S., is a favorite motto of the fifth graders this year. Our study included the time from the formation of the thirteen colonies to the present when our country is a world power. In reading we read stories of the present day and of days in history. These days are past but the boys and girls of today can live in them through their reading. We also live funny impossible days in storyland - days that can be lived only in our imagination. The students learn many interesting things about the world in which they live through reading various science books, doing actual experiments, and studying more carefully their surroundings.

We also learned to divide by them, We had a lot of fun multiplying by two numbers. Our annual trip to tne Planetarium ln Cherokee, was taken after we studied the heavens, in science. We also studied 5, 'I about plants, animals, air and wind, and magnets, We learned magnets are fun as well as useful, In social studies, this year, we found out how the New World was discovered and how it was settled. We also en- joyed studying about famous great Americang and some of the larger cities in the United States. While reading the unit 'Young Citizens Here and 'I'here, ' We made a travel bureau. We traveled all over the world. We gave several plays, throughout the year. for the other , grades and our parents. This Spring we gave 9, program for our Mothers. . We ended the school year with a track meet and a plcnlc.

Hc becomes able to do his class work with very little help from his teacher. He re-learns his addition and subtraction facts. Other phases are counting money, making measures, telling time, carrying in addition and borrowing in subtraction. But the hi-lite of his arithmetic this year ls to learn how to multi- ply and divide through the three's. Yes, they also are becoming good little readers. They go through three basic books. THE STREETS AND ROADS SERIES. Stories are dramatized for other grades. Letter writing becomes a reality when they learn the five parts of a friendly letter and how to address an envelope. A visit to the Post Office makes this live ln their minds. Cor- rect usage of words is also stressed. During the year visits were made to the grocery store, the library, and the creamery. A real grocery store was made in the room. Each one enjoyed being the storekeeper. 9' Seeds were everywhere in the room when the third graders made 5 seed collection. You could find almost any kind of a seed by visiting the room, Music, physical education and art were other classes en- joyed during the year. Front row: Ellen Grienke, Kathleen Cacek.

Reading and phonics have helped them to develop their structural and pho- netic analysis skills: improve their ability in in- dependent reading. Our new science books deal with the basic pat- terns of the universe: namely, patterns as princi- ples of space, time, change, interrelationships vari- ety, adaptations and balance. -Correlated with this subject we had excursions, studied various items, such as cocoons, ants, wasps, bees, crickets, rocks, leaves, etc. Numbers, social studies, health, spelling, lan- guage, penmanship, music and physical education help to round out the second grade curriculum. The highlight of the year was our train ride to Cherokee, and a trip through the Planetarium.

During the year the boys and girls learned many words. They enjoyed read- ing about the experiences of Dick, Jane, and Sally. In number work the first grade developed readiness for the general use of numbers and the number system, basic number facts, measuring and ,,-A use of monev. 5, The first step in writing was learning the cor- rect way to make each letter. The second step was , forming words and sentences and the last step was -9 i Dick writing stories. We enjoyed our science book Look and Learn. The units we had were animals, machines, seasons, months and plants. Our social studies work was centered around ij' ii ' the family and the school. .. ,Q ' 1 Jane .H SHIIY Front row: Barbara Schuler, Cynthia Peterson.

FIFTH AND SIXTH GRADE ACTIVITIES In both fifth and sixth grade reading classes, they are trying to increase their vocabulary by look- up new words for each story, writing the meaning of each word and using them in a sen- tence. In fifth grade arithmetic, we are going to be doing long divi- sion problems, multiplying three- place numbers, adding and sub- tracting decimals and also frac- tions, finding perimeters and areas of squares, In sixth grade arithmetic, we are going to learn to add, sub- tract, multiply and divide frac- tions and also decimals, study the units of measure, and find the un- known number by adding, sub- tracting, multiplying and divid- ing. For extra work in language, each student is to read four li- brary books and make a written report and an oral report on each. Other subjects that we have are: spelling, science, health, so- cial studies, and also we have music, physical education and art. Front row: Barbara Kraemer.

This will be done by indi- vidual study and time tests on each process at intervals through- out the year. Charts will be kept to show each child's progress in speed and accuracy. These pupils will be encour- aged to read several library books during 'tspare time and each shall report upon at least two to the class. Much stress will be placed up- on the improvement of both oral and silent reading in these grades. It is very important that they grades have become good readers before attacking the more difficult work-type reading, such as is found in social studies. It is hoped that these pupils shall all learn to budget their time and plan ahead in the preparation of their lessons. This also will be much help to them as they advance to higher grades. FIRST AND SECOND GRADE ACTIVITIES 1958-1959 should be a success- ul year with our eight first grad- ers and seven second graders. Interesting reading experiences will be offered through the use of basic readers, charts, signs, and supplementary readers. We hope each child will enjoy reading, and have the desire to read independ- ently after knowledge of the ba- sic vocabulary for his grade. With a foundation of phonics and language, this should all be possible. Number work in first grade will consist of counting, repro- ducing, and identifying objects to 10, recognition of groups to sixg relation between add and subtract plus number vocabulary. In second grade we will go into the teens with stories for addition and subtraction, measures, coins, time, and counting by 2's, 3's, 5's and l0's. With second grade spelling, plus health, science, creative ac- tivities, music and games we should have a full year.

We do this by devoting one period a week to theory, one to listening lessons of Record Day, another to singing, one to rhythm and one to musical games. Because one phase of music cannot rightfully be separated from another, the five periods can be correlated by studying a song in four or five steps when- ever possible: Theory: the key signature of the song plus the syllables. Rhythm: how each measure can be divided differently be- tween the number of beats. Singing: first on syllables, then on hum, and finally on words. Listening: hearing other sing- ers do the song, either by quar- tets from the class or be record- ing of the song when the record is available. Musical Games: to give theory an immediate purpose for learn- ing all the key signatures, lines and spaces, and so on. Each stu- dent has the responsibility to his own team to study and learn, or his team will lose in the tourna- ment. Eventually students realize that the ultimate purpose is to facilitate music reading for their own enjoyment as well as for performing. By having music every day we can vary the program to include piano classes, for which we will use cardboard keyboards plus ac- tual piano keyboardsg program day in each class to encourage performingg Play Teacher Day so that individual pupils may teach a song to the rest of the classg and perhaps Flutophone classes to determine interest and ability toward instrumental mu- sic.
