Kim Frederickson moved to Minnesota and our dear Lynette Clausen passed on. Now we have twelve pupils. We finished We Read. Kindergarten Activity book was used as needed throughout the year. It is nearly completed. Our numeral book is almost fin- ished too. The children can write up to 10 and can count up to 10 in both English and German. We have studied the weather, plants and ani- mals in science, using the Concept Charts and find- ing them very helpful. Music has been a happy time for us - learn- ing songs and singing games, hearing records and enjoying a Rhythm Board. We participated in three Community Meetings. The children put on their own Halloween, Christmas, Valentine and Easter parties. They are planning a coffee for their moth- ers. Several of the children celebrated their birth- days, The year has been rnost pleasant for both the children and their teacher.

We are re-'acquainted with Dick, Jane, and Sally, and learn to read real stories about them. Meeting some of their friends proves interesting toward the end of the year. Everyone likes reading class and by the end of the year, We are amazed at the long list of words we can recognize. Our phonics helps us to sound out words for ourselves and We make large consonant charts. In numbers we begin with concepts of many and fewg next the groupings of addition are learn- ed, measurement, money, and time telling are also encountered. In the spring we grow our own garden, talk about different phases of weather, and take a field trip to highlight our unit on birds. Vxfe especially enjoy Halloween, Christmas, and Valentines Day as we have special parties on these days.

GRADE ACTIVITIES Twelve first graders and ten second graders began school this year. Gayle Frederickson left us in December, and we welcomed Craig Rehnstrom in March. To be good readers is the goal for all in these grades. It has been fun to 'dramatize stories, both with live characters and puppets. It has been surprising to discover how much we learn about number facts, science all around us, health rules, social studies, and writings. October was out month to be on the program for Community Meeting. Also, we sang in the choir for the Christmas program. Front row: Steven Quirk.

The children have ia genuine interest and de- sire to read. They have completed three basic text- THANKSGIVING Second Grade books, they are accompanied by workbooks and in addition have read several supplementary readers. VVe strive to achieve in arithmetic further un- derstanding of the meanings -and relationships of numbers. They learn combinations up to eighteeng number names and their meaning, value of money up to fifty centsg and measures. The class completed three phonics books and a language readiness book. In science we study about space, time change, interrelationships variety, adaptations and balance, Correlated, with this subject we had excursions studied various items, and enjoyed filmstrips. Social studies help the children to develop in- dependence and in solving problems involved in group living. Hello David and Someday Soon are the two textbooks used in this course. The spelling Workbook is introduced in this grade. The first half of the year deals with only the simplest words. The second half, the words are met in context and studied in lists. They also make the change from manuscript to cursive writ- mg.

B FAIRVIEW THIRD AND FOURTH GRADE ACTIVITIES The third and fourth grades had two teachers. Mrs. McMurray taught the first semester, and Mrs. Gould the second semester. Dari Holmes joined us in fourth grade in Decem- ber. Douglas Mattson entered as a new pupil in September. Steven Mallison and John Schuldt left us. For our part in the Community Meeting, we gave a Thanksgiving play in November. This was especially interesting to us because of pioneer read- ing units and our social studies of the colonies. The third grade wrote and presented a puppet show on a fire ranger's duty and dangers, during Fire Prevention Week. After Christmas the third graders worked on an Indian unit for social studies. The use of maps and globes has brought the world closer to us. The fourth graders experiences with these have been fun. rian Frederick, Paul Lietz, Dick Adolphson, Billy Anderson, Linda Cacek THIRD GRADE ACTIVITIES The third graders became more independent readers and the stories read came to life as they were dramatized. Along with the reading, the stu- dents learn to divide words into syllables, tell which syllable is accented in a word, and how to use prefix and suffixes. In English we studied writing good sentences, friendly letters, and learned good telephone man- ners. Arithmetic found them progressing rapidly as they learned to carry in addition, borrow in sub- traction, multiply and divide. Telling time, counting money, and working with measurements were also accomplished. Several field trips were taken throughout the year to increase interest in social studies.

Programs. They have enjoyed Valentine, Halloween, and Christmas parties. The fourth grades have enjoyed trips of exploring the sea. They have had a trip to the moon. They have been studying about New Mexico and have been learning some of the Spanish words that rare spoken there and also some other facts abou-t Mexico. They have been trying to mas- ter new tricks with arithmetic numbers and im- proving their reading.

As junior high students. we are busy with many extra curricular activities. The boys who are interested in athletics may participate in football and basketball. Many junior high students are in the high school and junior bands. During the school year we also have many parties including a Christ- mas party and two skating parties. At the end of , -7 the year we have a picnic. I Lorraine Swanson, Janis Mieras, Linda McGowan, Kathy Bell I 'f -S v Front row: Curt Hammond, Tim Stllle, Muns Fareslad Second row: Mike McDanel.

Those who used to seem so much younger were now arrived at the plateau which we so re- cently left, and We were faced with the fact that we age and are no longer quite the same as those past forms in our reminiscences. HOME ECONOMICS Colleen Samuelson Judy Anderson Now occupying a second-story room, the frosh were never-the-less initiated into the pace of high school life - being guests of the sophomores at a mid-Gctober beatnik party. Dating, music, ath- letics, organizations, and a participation in most high school activities marked their metamorphosis. We'll Bulldog 'em, the freshman float this year, was done with 'a splash of color, but the Bulldog- ing Cyclone sagged, and the freshman received a fourth place rating. Basic courses this year were math, science, and English. Girls were required to take home eco- nomics, boys, industrial arts or agriculture. Class- es were once again divided. Thus passed another year and a new order, another layer of the ac- cumulated experience upon which we all stand.

Peg Kindwall and John Nordman were chosen as homecoming attendants from our class. We find ourselves with much more homework this year than in our freshman year. We blame it on the teachers, of course, like most normal sopho- mores do. Our studies include English and world history, these courses are required, many of the sophomores Wonder why. Driver's education, which has been required in past years, became an elec- tive course this year. Other courses include alge- bra, homemaking, agriculture, and biology. Physi- cal education is also required twice a week. In case you don't have a free period for physical education, you have to participate in a sport or, for the girls, go out for GRA. Extra-curricular activities include GRA, FHA, and drill team for the girls. For the boys there are FHA, football, basketball, and track. Musical ac- tivities include Girls' Glee Club, Boys' Glee Club, and Mixed Chorus. There are also small vocal groups. Marching band and concert band are also enjoyed by many. For our Freshman-Sophomore party, the soph- omores treated the freshmen to a beatnik party. Everyone came dressed as a beatnik and it was quite a sight. We received a party from the fresh- men at the end of the year. Our class had two spcial projects to raise money, one was 'a car-wash and the other was a pigeon hunt.

Life has become a more joyful, meaningful, and serious thing. Many new privileges and responsibilities have come to us. And school has become the center of our activ- ities. Since our class is one of the largest to ever come through the Alta Community School, We have followed many different paths and have created many impressions both good and bad, far and near. But each and everyone still feels that he or she is a part of the group. In recent years the accent has been on educa- tion and we have a great variety of choices: home- making, agriculture, shop, a foreign language tGer- mani, office work, law, geometry, or chemistry be- sides the required English and United States his- tory. JUNIORS TAKING NATIONAL MERIT TEST Dave Johnson Dave Wolfe Liz Peters Tom Wall At the beginning of this year we had a good time trying to throw together enough napkins and chicken wire to make a float. The next major pro- ject Was the Junior Class play, Girl Shy which was on the average an entirely new experience for us. And as juniors we inherited the junior stand and the sole operation thereof. To this the over- flow from music and sports is directed and these breadwinners for the junior class may be found at both football and basketball games. And last but not least, is the Junior-Senior Prom which serves as sort of a finale to the school year. It is a last blast of cardboard, color, music, fancy clothes, and mixed emotions, and to the struggling junior .1 sure sign that summer vacation is coming.

Members ot the faculty at- tend summer school, manage the swimming pool, coach baseball, help the fire depart- ment, paint, and do various other things. Their job alone is time consuming with all the unnoticed duties beyond school hours. Each is a class sponsor and is expected to at- tend class meetings and parties. They're also to be present, it possible, at the numerous athletic contests, and music and dramatic presentations. These activities leave little time for them to lead their own lives. r W PAUL JoNEs Social Studies, English B.

Poulson H Elmer Strom August Jensen Music Section CONCERT BAND MAJORETTE Sharen Huseman INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC The Alta High School Instrumental Music Department has had its most successful year under the direction of Mr. Schive. The band not only produced ten division I ensembles and six division I soloists, but also captured division I ratings in both marching band and concert band. This marks the first time this has happened in at least 15 years. The band's first public appearance was the second day of school for the annual flag raising ceremony. This was followed, in rapid succession, by two months of hard work during which the band appeared at four home football games, the high school home- coming parade, state marching band contest held here at Alta, and the western Iowa Band Festival at Carroll, Iowa. As its first venture indoors, the band was cut to seventy mem- bers and the first annual Pops concert was presented on Decem- ber 6, The band also appeared on the annual Christmas program in conjunction with the vocal music department. The seventh annual tri-school festival was held by the com- bined bands and choruses of Aurelia, Albert City-Truesdale and Alta. The band was guest conducted by Mr, Raymond DeVilbiss of the University of South Dakota at Vermillion. The next big date on the bands calendar was the sixth annual all Northwest Iowa High School Band Festival. Four Alta musi- cians were chosen to participate. They were Alice Noble, flute: Karen Lletz, bass clarinet: Carole Walton. baritone saxophone: and Roger Anderson, trombone. The festival band was under the direction of Clarence Saw- hill, Director of Bands at UCLA. Buena Vista College invited the band to present a concert at one of their student convocatlons. This concert was fulfilled on April 5, and was well attended and very well received. Ensemble and solo contest was held at Newell on Saturday, April 8. The following division I's were received: Sally Carpenter, flute solo: Beverly Sassman. clarinet solo: Karen Lietz, bass clar- inet solo: Beverly Lietz, tenor saxophone solo: Roger Anderson, trombone solo: Paul Ruehmann, trombone solo: flute trio: flute quartet: clarinet trio: clarinet quartet: woodwind trio A: wood- wind quartet: miscellaneous group of woodwinds: woodwind choir: trumpet quartet and trombone quartet. The following soloists and groups were awarded division II's: Alice Noble. flute solo: Ruth Ann Peterson, flute solo: Versa Gen- tis, alto saxophone solo: Marilyn Murphy, tenor saxophone solo: Richard Groth, tenor saxophone solo: Douglas Patten, trumpet solo: Miriam Peterson, trumpet solo: woodwind trio B and brass choir. The band performed a most difficult number for large group contest at Linn Grove. It was Gustav I-Iolst'5 Second Suite for Military Band in F' Major. A division I rating was awarded the band by each of the three judges. The final home concert of the year was performed on May 8 with William Billy Redman, percussionist, as soloist. The National Guard invited the band to play a concert at the dedication ceremonies for the new National Guard Armory in Storm Lake on Memorial Day, As usual, the last official appearance of the band is the an- nual Memorial Day Parade. interspersed throughout the year are numerous solo and en- semble perforrnances for many different clubs and organizations. This, along with the schedule of nine summer band concerts indeed indicate that work is never done for an Alta band member. fx Y F ,rr ,, 2-2 'fw-1 - .212-. A .

The mixed chorus and glee clubs had an ex- cellent year and the small groups and soloists did very com- mendable Work. Activities for the vocal music department began with the annual Christmas program, Triple A Festival, an annual event held in conjunction with the Albert City and Aurelia schools, was next for the vocal department. The quality of the music, both contemporary and religious, made the program very en- joyable. In preparation for small group contest, a pre-contest con- cert was held. The purpose of this concert was two-fold: it showed the local community what had been accomplished and gave the musicians experience. Contest was a success for the small groups. 'I'here were twenty-three division I ratings re- ceived and twenty-two division II's. The spring concert included most of the numbers practiced throughout the year and the music to be sung at large group contest. At contest the hard work chorus members had put forth paid off, for they received a division I rating. The girls' glee club and boys' glee club received division II ratings. The final appearance for the mixed chorus was at the Commencement exercises where they sang Climb Every Moun- tain. 1 Front row: Jerry Meyer, Ronald Peterson, John Nordstrom.

The high point of the game for Alta was Myron Radke's return of a kickoff 80- yards for a touchdown. ALTA 32 SAN BORN 'I4 Fleet back Doug Patten scored three touch- downs and Myron Radke ran for 75-yards and a touchdown on a kickoff. Don Gustafson added the final tally on a pass. ALTA 7 SUTHERLAND 14 Sutherland outlasted Alta in the closest game of the season. Doug Patten scored the only Alta touchdown on an end sweep. ALTA 6 AURELIA 34 The Aurelia Bulldogs put a damper on the Homecoming activities for the Cyclones. Costly mistakes were only partially overcome when Myron Radke raced 75-yards on a kickoff return for Alta's only score. ALTA 0 HARTLEY 13 Mistakes within the ten yard line were the determining factor as Alta came out on the bottom end of the score in another hard fought game . ALTA 0 MILFORD 'I9 Milford's inspired offense and determined de- fense took the Cyclones by surprise, and they were unable to recuperate in time to reach pay dirt. ALTA 'I3 PAULLINA 46 Paullina's fleet offense was too much for Alta's defense as the Panthers raced for seven touch- downs. The Cyclones hit pay dirt only twice, once on an 85-yard kick-off return by Doug Patten and again on a 40-yard pass from Paul Ruehmann to Dave Wolfe. ALTA 7 PRIMGHAR 19 Although Alta drew first blood when alert de- fense guard, Bill Huseman, picked up a fumble and rambled 40-yards for the touchdown, they were unable to keep pace with the inspired Prim- ghar eleven. After the final gun of the last game, the Alta Cyclone football season was history. Close observation reveals some interesting facts. For instance: Doug Patten lead the scoring for the Cyclones by rushing for 5 touchdowns, pass- ing for another, and rushing for 3 extra points. Myron Radke lead Alta's attack by gaining a total of 343 yards in 180 attempts, averaging 2.9 yards per carry. Myron was also the leading pass- er, completing 29 of 81 attempts for 309 yards, Hc was the team's punter, averaging 31.3 yards per kick. Bill Huseman lead the Cyclones in averaging 4.2 yards per carry. Dave Wolfe was the leading receiver, catching 14 passes for a total of 172 yards with an average of 12.4 yards. Alta's defensive unit was lead by Bob McDon- ald. He averaged 13.75 tackles per game and was the team's middle linebacker. Tom Grigg, tackle, was second with 7.4 tackles per game. That closes the history book for the 1960 Alta Cyclone's foot- ball season.

The Cyclone is financed entirely by year- book sales which means the statf's job is not I an easy one, but very rewarding.

Each year it has a state and national convention taking place in the spring and fall, where they elect offi- cers for the coming year. Also each year, one week is designated as FFA Week in which they have many contests to publicize the FFA. The members are required to have a super- vised farming plan, either of crops or livestock which they can use as a start in the farming pro- fession.

This was a means of working toward the national objective of Developing a better understanding of our family members and to contribute to their well being. The annual Christmas Dance was one of the activities of the girls. Points were given through- out the year to girls who took an active part in FHA and who helped with extra projects. Those receiving the number of needed points went to Veishea. The FHA flower is the red rose. It is symbolic of vibrant, glowing health which contributes to the happiness and efficiency in home and group life.

It was founded last year by a group of energetic science students under the guid- ance of Mr. McCoy. As seems obvious, the purpose of the club is to allow members to pursue specific scientific inter- ests. Meetings were held once a month. Special meetings were also provided when the occasion merited it. It was a project of the Science Club to put the school's new science laboratory in order. Other projects included movies, glass blowing, and de- veloping photographs. In November the Club held open house at the PT.A, Back-to-School Night. Groups of members conducted experiments to show the new equipment and apparatus in the science department. During the year the Science Club took field trips to various places of interest. A highlight came when several members attended the Hawkeye Science Fair at Des Moines in April.

The theme Under Paris Skies was carried out by a park scene which was highlighted by a very impressive fountain. Another main feature was the Eiffel Tower set against a majestic sky. The sidewalk cafe played a major part in creating the atmosphere of Gay Paree. For the banquet the decorations consisted of silhouette scenes of Paris and blue and white streamers, creating an air of lomance. Entertainment at the banquet was provided by members of the Junior Class. The vocal numbers EIFFEL TOWER LOLLIPOP presented carried out the theme of Paris. The mothers of the Junior Class prepared the delicious dinner. It was served by waiters and waitresses from the Sophomore Class. The intermission program at the Prom was en- joyed by all and very well presented by the Fresh- man and Sophomore Classes. Dancing music was provided by Schartman's Sextet from Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Sep- tember 30 was the date. The preparation of the floats began at the beginning of the week, The four classes were each doing their best to finish first in the ranking. But all knew there was only one first place and everyone received pleasure from working with his classmates. Besides the building of floats during the week there was also choosing of king, queen, and their attendants. The attendants and escorts were in- troduced at the traditional pep rally and bonfire held Thursday evening. Pep talks were given by Coach McCoy, Queen Janet Peterson, and King Jerry Endreson. On Friday afternoon the Homecoming Parade took place. Also the pep meeting on Main street was held. Friday night the band presented a half-time show at the game, during which the King and Queen were crownd. The Homecoming game was played against Aurelia. Although we were defeated by Aurelia, our spirits were still high and an enjoyable Home- coming Dance was held after the game. Queen Janet and King Jerry reigned over the dance.

This was no sudden culmination of our efforts and prestige, we had merely changed. Again we built a homecoming float, Give 'em the Works, the senior jinx going for naught as we lost our cyclone, and slipped to third. We held our quota of parties, fthese differentiated from those of yore by slightly later hours and perhaps some added sophistication! Typing, office courses, English, social studies, agriculture, chemistry, industrial arts, and trig- onometry comprised the available curricula. Cer- tainly there was no deficiency of extracurricular activities. The music department shaped up well, but lamentably the athletic and academic records were not outstanding. In a small school classes vary, and we held our individuality. If previous classes Fhave been famous for ambition and aggressiveness, we are probably the most amiable collection of people ever to graduate, which in these warlike 'times may, after all, be, a conspicuous virtue. We have gather- ed some experience and are not very much awed by the change from preps to wage-earners or col- legians. Now, gauging past and anticipated exper- iences, we will impassively wipe the tears from our eyes and find new things to do.

The rambunctious plot of this play was center- ed around 'the efforts of two straight-laced angels to claim tlhe souls of two elderly people. Pilone, a cupid-playing half-angel, endeavored to thwart the efforts of his betters and stirred the cauldron ef- fectively. Cast in the lead part of rich and can- tankerous Augusta Applegate was Linda Cone. Dean Radke as Herman Howell, the other old soul, is abetted by Alan Harms as Pilone in his effort to enrapture Augusta. Augusta W-as plagued with ta conglomeration of soft-soaping, money-seeking relatives. Orpha Teel, played by Alice Noble, hoped to live with her aunt, Augusta, and to provide her daughter, Ruthie lFrances Dalhll, with the proper husband-hunting background. Baxter Bromsley fHarry Melander, Jr.J was aided by his wife, Millie CNancy Kind- walll, in his attempt to appropriate funds from Aunt Gus to advance his madcap inventions. Bax'ter's daughter, June CMary Husemanl, is en- gaged to Richard W'hite CJerry Endresonl. Orpha was hopeful that Ruthie would attract rich and ec- centric, fMyron Radkel, Pilone misbehaved, and the result was a romantic plot and counter-plot.
