Nor had it a hero, the principal male role being that of the prosecuting attorney, Kenneth Quirk, and the defense attorney, Norman Peterson.

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 years. i i l l 1 i 1 i SENIOR SECTION , Front row: Editorl Second row: Helene Dahl Mary Carter Judy Coombs Third row: Roger Rydstrom Carol Johnson Dennis Otto Kent Huseman X SALES STAFF Front row: Nancy Pederson, Linda Cone, Malvern Huseman, Margaret Turnquist Second row: Karen Ltetz, Norma, Lichtenberg, Ver- non Hoops Third row: John Grieme, Larry Frantz 4-V I-.1 x .fx X414 I v 51 ...- 4 0 BUSINESS MANAGERS Front row: Jerry Endreson tJunior Business Managerl, Ruth West tSenIor Buslness Manageri, 'Agn R Alan Harms nJunior Business Manager: Second row: Jean Mangold, Judy Jones i Thlrd row: Janet Peterson, Ronald Preston.

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 demonstration. 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. R' A PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE FFA PROJECT F.H.A.

' 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 sponsors. 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.

Alan Harms, Jerry Endreson, Dean Radke JANUARY THAW 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 lovers. 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.

Johnson and Norman Peterson HOMECOMING ACTIVITIES 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 year. 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 in ram. The band entertained at halftime and the crowning of the King and Queen took place. Doris R. Johnson was chosen Queen and Norman Peter- 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. Following the game the homecoming dance was held at the community room with the Rhythm Knights furnishing the music.

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.

E E S 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 Yearbook Staff. 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.

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- ities. 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, Hr" are W 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- ed.

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 opponents 51. M051 vel-un Liv Fw, LP-'lea A00 oN V' 6033 Conifxexgfck first Te 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- warks. 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.

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. .fam S9 REBOUNDS ALTA GORDON RADKE All Conference Second Team Forward TWELVE L14 FIRST ll Q, 51 -.-., .' .4 -'. if l Front row: Coaches Jerry Ibach and Delbert McCoy Second row: Harry Melander, David Wolfe, Don Gustafson, 'Tom Grigg, Gordon Radke, Kent Huseman, Bob'Wolfe, Clayton Porter, Bob McDonald, Myron Radke, Normana Peterson, Jerry Endreson KENT SCORES TWO AGAINST PRIMGHAR CLAYTON PORTER All Conference Honorable Mention Forward it F 'wk ff? 1959-60 BASKETBALL NORMIS LONG SHOT SCORES Alta 42 ..... ....

JoNEs JUNIOR HIGH ACTIVITIES Junior High is a place of preparation for High School. We have a very tight schedule in Junior High and are kept quite busy. In seventh we are kept busy with math, Eng- lish. reading, spelling, geography, and science, while in eighth grade we have math, English. read- ing, spelling, history, civics, science and health. In math class we learn simple geometry, the use of formulas, and we Work with fractions. We discuss the lesson and correct our papers. The language arts class include English, read- ing, and spelling. English class helps to maintain our knowledge of the parts of speech. how to dia- gram a sentence, and practice in giving talks, im- promptu speeches, stories and explanations. We also learn how to write essays on various subjects. Reading helps to develop our vocabulary. We dis- cuss the stories that we read and go over the defin- itions of the new words. Spelling also helps in our vocabulary and also in the enunciation of the words. We have seventeen new words each Week. The study of science includes the study of plant and animal life, the earth's surface and the uni- verse. Health is also included. We have many extra-curricular activities. We have industrial arts for the boys and homemaking for the girls. In homemaking, the girls have one semester of cooking and one semester of sewing. For the boys interested in sports, we have a bas- ketball team and a football team. In Vocal music, the seventh grade has subscribed to a magazine, Junior Keyboard. The eighth grade has studied everything from jazz to symphonies. We have been getting good experience in writ- ing since the high school Cyclone staff asked us to write one article each week for the newspaper. We have two skating parties a year and this year we had a Thanksgiving and Christmas party a so. Front row: Daniel Hansen, Charles Moore.

We have studied many things and also had fun doing art projects. In science, we have studied the weather, space materials, plants, and animals. We studied the plants and animals by bringing different types of them. In our weather unit we made a reference re- port on the weather conditions. We also learned and had fun doing many experiments. In English we learned many things about our English language we didn't know. We also looked up things in the dictionary and encyclopedias. In social studies we learned of different places in the world. We drew our own World maps and also put on a play written by our classmates. In arithmetic we have been studying fractions. We also get into more complicated work of sub- tracting and adding numbers plus multiplication and division. For fun, we work with clay in art class. We had a Health and safety poster contest earlier in the year which proved interesting. Front row: David Boettcher, Marsha Cox, Tony Stille, Bobby Hogancamp.

We reviewed our addition and subtraction facts, learned to count money, tell time, measure things, carry in addition and borrow in subtraction. The high light of our year was to learn to multiply and divide through the fives. In reading we became more independent read- ers. We used three basic books, The Street and Roads Sries. We acted out our favorite stories for other grades. English found us Writing "real" letters to our grandmothers, the grocery store and the post of- fice. Something ne wwas the making of book re- ports using correct vvords and form. Visits were made to the grocery store, post of- fice! library and to a pond. We all became true first Americans of Indians in the fall. We built our own tepee, totem pole, and cooked' real Indian food.

Goodman, Steven Volt, Miss Essman KINDERGARTEN ACTIVITIES In kindergarten we learn many new things. At first we learn our colors by using colored name tags and colored circles on each table. Each month We sat at a different table with a different colored circle. We learned to Write our numbers up to ten. In the first semester we learned to count to five. In the second semester we finished counting to ten. To learn our alphabet we made a book con- taining pictures Which we put in alphabetical order. Also during the year we learned to tie our shoes and write our first and last name. We learn- ed numerous songs and finger plays, also acted out stories. We colored and painted many different things for art. Also we had different units on families, pets, holidays, toys, winter, and farms. Part of our learning is to share and get along with our family and playmates. ' One of our biggest thrills was having our mothers at our Christmas party. er, I, 3: .1i,w,-. .Q ffl rj 'P 5 - 1 K RD 14I3t'.,if "" Vvfwf' l -5 -. if Sf .

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 h-ard work. 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 classics. Further rhythm training is achieved by folk daglices, square dances and the simple action rec- or s. 'Pupils are given the opportunity various times :luring the school year to perform, either by solo or in a group. -Ill' uv' 1 k K .a s vi" S xi .

Correct usage of words and improving our man- ners are being stressed in our language classes. 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 book. One of the events enjoyed by the pupils was the community meeting in January, at which time they presented two plays, "The Hill Billy Wed- ding" and "The Little Red Schoolhouse." 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. t Science offers experiments for us to eagerly ry. I .We hope that by working in groups and in- dnndually the best in each child may be brought ou .

We appeared on community programs in Octo- ber and December. This was fun. Learning to read is such a satisfaction when we discover We can read books other than our text- books. With sight Words and use of phonetic rules, this is made possible. Number work in both grades is quite easily learned when we can quickly recognize grouping. In both grades each combination is learned as a number story. "Circles and straight lines," is the familiar phrase when learning to write the manuscript way. Cursive writing in second grade is a thrill, because we are growing up and writing like our older friends. :Stiff f ' i, h'
