High school days, filled with hard work and
happy events, are days which We will try to re-
member and cherish.
As we become older, we will probably forget
some of those happy events. Then this yearbook
will be our only record of the happy days that we
can never live again. Through this book We will be
able to recapture again the activities and laughter
of the days of our youth in Alta High. This is our
record of those memorable days.

"Do you swear to tell the
truth, the whole truth, and
nothing but the truth?"
As Seniors we are facing an end and looking forward to
a new beginning. We have overcome many disappointments,
experienced a wealth of fun, and, we hope, gained the edu-
cation suitable for our future years. We may not be the best
class that graduated from Alta High - we cannot be judges
of that. But we have accepted our challenge and worked for-
ward - each as his ability would allow. If we are remem-
bered for nothing else, let it be that.

Connie Lichtenberg was chosen for the
leading feminine part, that of Karen
Andre, defendant in the murder trial. Nor
had it a hero, the principal male role being
that of the prosecuting attorney, Kenneth

Our Faculty in
HOME IS WHERE YOU MAKE IT
Every school system has its teachers. Unfor-
tunately, they are often isolated in this realm. We
are very proud of the part our teachers play in the
community life of Alta. Some of them have made
their permanent homes here and are interested
in the future of the town. You'l1 find them in var-
ious churches, leading choirs and teaching Sunday
school. During the summer their work takes them
to business houses and the community swimming
pool. In case of fire they do their part with the
volunteer fire department. As high school students,
we have found our teachers ready to help us with
all our problems. This then, is our faculty.

under the supervision of Max Fuller, the staff ad- ,
visor, headed this year's publication of the Cyclone. N
The entire staff worked diligently to make this 4
yearbook a success. ,
The yearbook's many activities included the an- ,
nual yearbook dance which was held March 5.
King Bob McDonald and Queen Sally 'Carpenter ,
who sold the W
the evening's W
were chosen from the ten salesmen
most yearbooks, They reigned over
festivities. All yearbook alumni were invited to at- l
tend the dance. Early in the spring a yearbook pic-
nic was held, all members enjoyed themselves. l
The yearbook which is financed entirely by l
yearbook sales is a pictorial history of the school's ,
activities during the year. It includes all classroom
activities and extra curricular activities such as: Y
football, basketball, track, vocal and instrumental
music, the school paper, FFA, GRA, etc. Since we
stopped selling advertisements two years ago and
concentrated on a house-to-house sales campaign,
sales of the yearbook have risen from 180 three '
years ago to an average of 350 for the last two

The Alta Chapter has done many things over
the past year.
Last summer the officers and Mr. Polzien went
to the lakes for three days and made out the pro-
gram of work.
This fall the Chapter entered an exhibit in
the Spencer Fair and a judging team participated
in judging events. The Chapter also put on ri
Five boys and our advisor went to the FFA
National Convention at Kansas City, Missouri.
Our money making project this year was sell-
ing fruit. It proved to be very profitable.
Plans for a FFA Banquet during National FFA
week are being made. An outstanding speaker will
be secured for the evening program.
For recreation the Chapter has played Aurelia
twice in basketball. Newell and Hayes are also
scheduled to be played.

A MOMENT OF GRANDEUR
After the last furious days of winter and dur-
ing the last days of March, the second floor of Dr.
Noble's office became the scenery of preparatory
activity. With a great deal of "sound and fury,"
work had begun, the occasion, the imminent junior-
senior prom. Although the planning of the program
was the responsibility of the members of the junior
class, these stalwarts were not without assistance.
The mothers were in charge of the preparation of
the banquet meal, and the class sponsors, in charge
of the students. Numerous citizens were prevailed
upon for the loan of materials, and much apprecia-
ted refreshments. A vote of thanks is due to all
those who helped in any of these ways, to Mr.
Bishop, who had charge of the prom, Miss Aegerter,
who headed the banquet, and Mr. Elliott, who di-
rected the entertainment, as well as the other class
While one committee worked independently of
the others on the decorations for the school lunch
room, where the banquet was to be held, most of
the others, with one week left until the crucial date,
transferred their operations to the Legion Hall --
scene of the impending dance. More nights than
not, during the last month, were devoted to very
necessary labor on the project. The pace was at
times less than rapid, but never less than hectic.
Somehow, sometime, everything would be in order,
and with late hours and the blessings of fate, the
"sometime" proved to be the right time.
The decorations in the Legion Hall were to be
shown on two occasions, the night of the dance and
the following Monday night With dinner prepara-
tions in order, the initial apocalyptic moment had
arrived, the occasion of the banquet proper. The
lunch room was bedecked with painted cartoons of
sea creatures, the tables were gold fish bowls, and
the girls in billowing formals. The food was dis-
posed of, and the formal ceremonies began. The
junior misses and misters provided entertainment
intermittently, receiving, as did the speakers, their
introductions, from Dean Radke, master of cere-
monies. The banquet was at an end, and the jun-
iors and seniors, some of them pausing to find
dates not belonging to the participating classes,
trickled into the Legion Hall.
The much labored over decorations. hitherto
seen only in the rough. were revealed. Under the
auspices of dim, colored lights their character was
improved, and now the cardboard and paper went
a fair way towards looking romantic. The seascape
on the east wall, south of the door announced
through the veiling of fish nets the theme, Nep-
tune's Garden. In a cave west of the stage lnow
masquerading as a boatl a smiling octupus guard-
ed an open treasure chest, and in the southwest
corner Neptune, reposing in his illuminated sea
shell and escorted by mermaids, drove his sea
horses. In the northwest corner, the ancient sunken
city gave way to the cave of Minnie the Mermaid,
where punch was served by the same gobs and
mermaids who had waited on tables during the din-
ner. A colorful coral garden lay on the remaining
side of the door.
The opportunity for the sophomores and fresh-
men to get into the act came with the presenta-
tion of the "Sea Show by the Sea Sho," and the
softer strains of the Art Kermse Band prevailed
through the evening.
The scene described, the object of so much
labor, darkened as the "Cinderella" hour struck.
The music was gone, and the young hearts and
tired hearts dispersed: the former, to smaller or
private parties, and the latter, to their comfortable
berths for the night.

Mr. Gage, a writer of a little regard and of
no little debt, packed up his belongings and familv
and moved into the old farm home of the suppos-
edly dead Rockwood family. He was contemplating
a long period of peace and quiet in which he could
finish a novel, which held promise of redeeming
him with his creditors. Such was not the case. Just
as the January thaw was setting in, the Gages
found themselves confronted with three very live
and very lively Rockwoods: father, mother, and
son. The younger member of the Rockwoods soon
became implicated in a romantic situation involv-
ing George Husted and Barbara Gage, the young
With the Rockwoods for boarders, three
daughters, suitors, disgusted maids, and Uncle
Walter, a Mount Idy type character, to contend
with, the Gage family soon became involved in a
farcical series of misadventures. Finally, these
misunderstandings were resolved, however, and the
Gages had a happily married daughter together
with two amiable neighbors who had decided that
the merits of the Rockwood barn were decidedly
greater than those of the house.

HOMECOMING QUEEN AND KING
Doris R. Johnson and Norman Peterson
The week of September 28, 1959 began the
homecoming activities at Alta High School. At the
beginning of the week the classes were busy pre-
paring their floats for the parade.
On Thursday night there was a bonfire and
pep rally at the park. The coaches gave pep talks
and introduced the team.
On Friday afternoon rain made it impossible
for the Homecoming Parade to take place. A pep
rally was held in the gymnasium. The traditional
judging of the class floats never took place this
Friday, October 2, the football team did their
part to make the 1959 Homecoming a success by
defeating Sutherland 22-0. The game was played
The band entertained at halftime and the

son was named King. The attendants were Connie
Lichtenberg and Gordon Radke, seniorsg Mary
Huscman and Jerry Endreson, juniors: Jean Man-
gold and Robert Radke, sophomoresg Karna Berg-
mann and Paul Ruehrnann, freshmen.

JUNIOR CLASS ACTIVITIES
These are the young people who have just fin-
ished their third or junior year of high school.
These are our future seniors and it is obvious that
they have gained much wisdom and maturity. The
most obvious sign of this maturity is their improv-
ed vocal cords which enable them to make more
racket than the underclassmen. However, the jun-
ior soon finds that this is not an easy year in
school. It is a year of reckoning in which any lost
time must be quickly regained. This is the year
that many students take five subjects and with
English, United States history, French, shorthand,
business law, bookkeeping, geometry, typing, and
physics to choose from, they have a wide selection.
Of these, the first two are mandatory and the rest
elective. With the ordeal behind them, the juniors
can now look back on their speech making, cramp-
ed fingers, and mistreated logical facilities with a
fiendish pleasure in the knowledge that the class
below will be put in the bucket next year.
JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS
Although certain sluffers many times became un-
available for duty on the junior projects, the ma-
jority haye taken part and have been taken in fthe
activities of coursel. The non-football and non-
basketball players learn to wear smiling faces in
spite of adversities met while working at the jun-
ior refreshment stand.
Many of these colorful personages have taken
part in the local humor contained in the play, "Jan-
uarty Thaw," a farce, which perhaps has been in-
spired by the current housing shortage. Pip, pip
and run tun tun, the juniors work is never done.
The supposed high spot of the junior year was the
Junior-Senior Prom on which the Juniors spent
much time, energy, and anxiety on the telephone
fperson to person especiallyl.
Now their third year of -school is finished and
the sainted halls are empty for the summer, but
it will not be long before they shall again be filled
with gurglings, shufflings, scribblings and clangor-
ings as the saints go marching in.

SOPHOMORE CLASS ACTIVITIES
Take a mixture of youth, noise, and sometimes
even ambition: shut it up in a schoolhouse and you
have the typical Alta sophomore. English and
world history are the required courses for this
year. These coupled with the electives, algebra,
biology, agriculture, home economics, and a requir-
ed semester of drivers education make up the sub-
ject matter which is fed to their creditable young
minds. Boys who do not participate in athletics and
all girls are required to take physical education
two days a week. We have many rock'm, sock'rn
sophomore athletes, and when these fellows and
girls were not busy watching television, many
have been known to vent their voices in musical ac-
tivities, or their ambitions in the F.F.A., F.H.A.,
and G.R.A. organizations. Some even wandered
into the folds of the Scarlet and Black Staff or
The sophomores create much of their ovcm
recreation by sponsoring dances after football or
basketball games, and a treshmen-sophomore
party which takes place twice during the year and
is organized once by each class. Of course, a float
is also labored over and finally presented at the
homecoming football game.

THE FRESHMEN ACTIVITIES
For years the older high school folks had con-
sidered these people as only youngsters. Then,
'What ho ?" they were fellow preps - freshmen at
Alta High. With the influx of students from the
Hanover and Fairview elementary schools, this
turned out to be a year of adaptation for many.
There were new obligations, opportunities, and ac-
tivities to cope with.
The boys and girls alike have mathematics,
general science, and English as required curricula.
One more subject is imposed upon them in the form
of home economics for the girls and shop or agri-
General math, general science, and English are
studies of the fundamentals in their respective
fields, and give the student a background for more
advanced work in succeeding years. The remaining
three are practical courses concerned mainly with
introducing the pupil to ordinary problems and
in helping him to find his special aptitudes or abil-
The enthusiasm of youth abounds and these
youths were not to be outdone on the less ardous
side of affairs. They received a full introduction
to their new social status in the form of dances,
musical activities, clubs, and athletics. In addition
they built a float for the homecoming festivities.
They are treated by the sophomore class to a
scamper at the roller rink, and in turn gave an
impromptu party for their benefactors. Watch out
upperclassmeng next year these freshmen shall be
wise to the ways of the world.
culture for the weaker sex. With the exception of
shop and agriculture, the class is segregated into
two groups for each course. This is done to insure
the teachers against being too greatly outnumber-

THE CYCLONE RECORD
The Cyclones, wearing their new jer-
seys, won all their games but the last one.
This victory of Paullina's was a heart-
breaker for it meant Paullina would share
the conference championship with Alta.
Before they met Paullina 'this year,
and including the 1958 season of football
the champs had fourteen straight Wins.
They finished this season with seven wins,
one loss, and a total of 184 points to their
Co-captain Gordon Radke led the
scoring attack with a total of 68 points.
Of these, 56 points were from touchdowns,
and the remaining 13 points were made
by his excellent kicks. Gordon was a mem-
ber of the all-conference first team and
received recognition as an all state honor-
able mention and All-Arnerican honorable
mention which made the Cyclones and
their fans very proud.
Two other members of the squad,
David Friedrich and Bob Wolfe, were a
part of the all-conference team. The skill
and gumption of these men helped to in-
crease the enthusiasm of the mighty bul-
John Grieme, a member of the all-
conference second team, scored 30 points
for the Cyclones and was the leading pass
receiver. Alta's other contribution to the
second all-conference team was Bob Mc-
Donald who, being a junior, will return
for more star playing next year.
The players who received all-confer-
ence honorable mention were Kent Huse-
man, Norman Peterson, Myron Radke,
and Tom Grigg who were all fine players
on the Alta Cyclone team of which every-
one was proud.

OUR CONFERENCE RECORD
The Alta basketball season is
past but the memory of the games
will always last in a students
mind. With the happy moments
also came the sad ones. Alta high
placed fifth in the conference
with a record of 7 wins and 7
losses. The overall record for the
season was 9 wins and 12 losses.
We placed two players on the all-
conference teams. A first team
place was given to Norm Peterson
and Gordon Radzke made the sec-
ond team. Norm Peterson led the
team in scoring with 342 points.
Kent Huseman led in rebounds
with 183. Fun mixed with work
on the part of the whole squad
has made this season a success in
the 1959-60 school year.

The Alta track squad of 1960 ended a
successful season, participating in ten
track meets. The squad worked hard
through the season and at times mixed in
a little fun to make the work seem easier.
The result: the teams as well as the in-
dividuals did very well. The highlight of
the track season was finishing second in
the conference meet at Aurelia. In the con-
ference meet, Alta won first place in the

VOCAL MUSIC ACTIVITIES
The Mixed Chorus and Glee Clubs helped
perform a fine Vocal Instrumental Christmas pro-
gram, "The Pageant of the Holy Grail." The mem-
bers and instructors worked hard on scenery and
preparation of this program. Although this type of
program is different from those in the past years
it was very successful.

FAIRVIEW JUNIOR HIGH ACTIVITIES
In Junior High we are changing from grade
school to high school. Along with this we must as-
sume more responsibilities and make changes in
our study habits. We have seven subjects to pre-
pare for each day.
Our activities include physical education class
twice a week, music classes every day, some of
us have instrumental lessons once a week and art
class once a week. During the Winter months, the
boys play several basketball games with other
Junior Highs. We also take part in presenting pro-
grams for community meetings.
We find Junior High fun, although it involves
FAIRVIEW MUSIC ACTIVITIES
Music classes include singing in unison and in
parts. To help us in sight reading and in rhythm
we use syllables and counting. Our musical games
such as Baseball and Fine, are a help in learning
the musical symbols.
Listening to different types of music by record
helps to give the student an appreciation of the
Further rhythm training is achieved by folk
daglices, square dances and the simple action rec-

In social studies, the fifth grade has increased
their knowledge of our 50 states by learning the
location, the correct spelling, and the capitals of
each state. Also each pupil was assigned either five
or six states to write reports on.
In both health-classes, each pupil is to make
up a crossword puzzle over material covered in the

FAIRVIEW THIRD AND
FOURTH GRADE ACTIVITIES
Arithmetic classes find the third grade learn-
ing to carry and borrow, and the fourth grade
learning multiplication and division processes.
Reading time is fun and busy. Looking up new
words and learning their meanings, learning and
reviewing phonics rules, dramatizing stories, and
reading orally with expression take up our time.
We also enjoy Weekly Readers.
Social Studies is quite different for the two
grades. fI'he third grade reads and learns of our
community and others like it, while the fourth
grade begins history of our country and map study.

this is made possible.
Number work in both grades is quite easily
learned when we can quickly recognize grouping.
