Easel painting and finger painting are favorite activities of
the kindergarten class at Fairview.
During the Christmas season we had great fun making a rein-
deer with papier mache, a sled, and a stuffed Santa Claus. Mak-
ing Christmas angels from detergent bottles was our project for
our mother's Christmas gift.
Numbers from one to ten are written and the concepts of each
Rhyming words and beginning sounds are a part of our read-
ing readiness work.
We have a rhythm band and everyone gets very excited on the
days we have band.
Creative expressions to rhythm records are great fun. Some-
times we are fairies, giants, elephants, or any one of a number
of other animals.
The kindergarten room at Alta is always filled with numerous
activities. The children may be modeling snowmen from clay, UW
painting at the easel, singing, expressing themselves in finger
plays or rhymes, or working in their reading readiness workbooks.
In the Autumn our units include: Living inthe School, Nur-
sery Rhymes, Transportation, Pets, Halloween, Thanksgiving,
and various Autumn activities.
Winter finds everyone busy on such units as: Christmas, The
Playhouse, Workers We Know, Winter Activities, The Circus, St.
Valentine's Day, and the Patriotic Holidays.
During the Spring our discussions include: The Farm, The
Garden, Easter, Mother's Day, and May Day.

First and Second Grade Activities
An exciting day was had when the Alta first graders began their pre-
primers. The boys and girls learned many words throughout the year. - -
They enjoyed reading about the experiences of Dick, Jane, and Sally. .5
The first grade developed readiness for the general use of numbers and
the number system in their number work. They also learned the basic
number facts, measuring, and the use of money.
The first step in writing was learning the correct formation of each
letter. The second step was forming words and sentences. The last step
was writing stories.
Look and Learn was the title of our science book. The units we
discussed were plants, animals, machines, seasons, and months.
Our social studies work was centered around the family and the school.
Arithmetic, reading, spelling, language, social studies and science plus
art, music, and physical education keeps the Fairview second graders very
busy this year. Now that we have added cursive writing the second semes-
ter we feel that we are growing up fast.
Science is fun this year. We especially enjoyed the imit on "Earth and
Universe." Experimenting wit.h magnets has also proven very interesting.
In arithmetic the basic number ideas are learned by a sequence of pic-
tures so that we can imagine the action and eventually learn the symbols.
In November we enjoyed presenting the playlet, "The Fairy Bookshelf,"
at Community Night in observance of National Book Week. We also took
part in the Christmas program in December.

Second Grade Activities
Fifty-seven Alta second graders have enjoyed a
most interesting and enjoyable year. Reading and
phonics have helped them develop their structural
and phonetic analysis, and improve their ability in in-
In arithmetic we learn to add, subtract, and mul-
tiply numbers to twenty. We also study measures,
money, telling time, shapes, how to build to tens,
and rational and ordinal counting.
An eventful experience is changing from manu-
script to cursive writing.
Social studies, health, science, spelling, language,
music, physical education and art help "round out" the
second grade curriculum.
The highlight of the year was our train ride to
Cherokee, and a trip through the Planetarium.
Third Grade Activities
The Alta third grade has an enrollment of twenty-
two girls and eighteen boys. The highlights of our year
have been trips to the dairy farm, grocery store,
creamery, and newspaper office. These trips have
helped to enrich our learning experiences in social
studies. Arithmetic has been very challenging. We
have learned to multiply and divide and have enjoyed
practicing these processes through the use of flash
card contests. Various plays and stories were drama-
tized throughout the year the part of our reading ac-
tivities. Several times during the year the entire class
has received treats because they all got a perfect score
in spelling tests. Language was enlightened through
the use of the telezonia kit which was provided by the
Bell Telephone Company.
We enjoyed our Halloween, Christmas, and Valen-
tine parties. Each of us took our turn serving and plan-
ning for one of the parties held during the year. The
room mothers who assisted us this year for various ac-
tivities were: Mrs. Jack Disscher, Mrs. Dick Adams,
Mrs. Robert Magnuson, and Mrs. Eugene Quirk.

Third and Fourth Grade Activities
In the Fairview third grade arithmetic class the
pupils learned the addition and subtraction facts, and
learned how to carry and borrow with numbers. The
fourth grade pupils learned their multiplication and
division facts and worked with larger numbers in
multiplying and dividing. Racing with flash cards
and working at the blackboard seemed to be en-
joyable and helpful to both grades.
In third grade social studies class, we made a
model tomm of Westport. Each student read a book
and gave a report about Indians in preparation to
making an Indian village. We also drew many pic-
tures of the things that we studied in class. One of the
projects made in the fourth grade was a Pueblo Indian
village. After each unit was finished, the fourth graders
drew a picture of the part they enjoyed most and wrote
a short story about it. They also spent much time be-
coming better acquainted with maps and rnap studies.
In language art classes, both grades worked hard to
be better readers, learned new words, their pronun-
ciation and meaning, learned to divide words into
syllables and to accent words, improved their ability
to capitalize, punctuate, and spell.
Making "A Good Food Train" using the seven basic
foods was one of the third grade projects in science
and health class.
Other subjects that we had were music, art, and

I' W Fourth Grade Activities
L i In the Alta fourth grade class this year, we have
. J experienced many new learning adventures. In
. social studies we took a trip back to the time of
Columbus to study the explorers who blazed trails for
future pioneers. To make our journey more interest-
- ' ing, we wrote and produced plays about some of
-Y ' these men.
To understand how electricity is generated, we
visited the Iowa Public Service plant near Alta.
During our study of stars and planets, we took a trip
to the planetarium in Cherokee.
Our most challenging accomplishment in arith-
metic was learning the multiplication tables and be-
coming familiar with fractions.

Fifth Grade Activities
The Alta fifth grade groups have had several
projects in correlation with the topics covered in the
science and social studies subject areas. Reports were
made on the planets, weather charts were completed,
and biographical resumes were written about famous
historical people who were so important in the forma-
tion of our United States. Supplementary map study
was provided in the usage of the Weekly Reader Map
In health, the study stressed both physical and men-
tal health along with all of the aspects of safety.
Boardwork was the most enjoyable feature of
arithmetic classes. We had the addition, subtraction,
and multiplication of three-place numbers and long
division by two-place numbers. Measurement, time
zone, and graph problems were also given. V
The language arts program featured story reviews
and dramatizations, book talks, group discussions, ',,'i L
parliamentary procedure, dictionary usage, learning ,QEfg5Tf.g ,.,f N'
the various parts of speech, and the development and L
extension of the reading and spelling vocabulary. '4

language arts treading, written and oral English,
spelling, writingl, social studies fearly civilizations
and the eastern hemispherej, arithmetic, science-
health-safety, physical education, art, vocal music,
and that cherished but soon taken away tradition--
recess. For many there are also instrumental lessons
and Junior Band.
Spicing the curriculum are such activities as sci-
ence experiments and demonstrations, talls by visi-
tors to other countries, films, club meetings, musical
programs, writing original verse, and creative art
projects. Especially interesting has been the intro-
duction of perspective in our drawings.
There are also three annual parties with enter-
tainment and refreshments planned and provided by
the sixth graders. These are held on or near Hallo-
- ween and Valentine's Day, and the day Christmas

This year's Junior Band numbered sixty-six mem-
bers, the largest it has ever been.
A marching band was formed and rehearsed for
the first nine weeks of school. Linda McGowan was
the drum majorette and her assistant was Shari
Christensen. The highlight of their fall season was
the halftime appearance at our last home football
Seventy-eight fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth
graders competed in the annual Junior High and
Grade School Solo Contest held in Storm Lake on
A spring concert was given by the Junior Concert
Besides Mr. Schive, their regular director, the
band had two other conductors. Mr. James Inman
and Mr. Melvin Dewey worked with the band for
eight weeks. They are student teachers from Buena
Vista College in Storm Lake. We enjoyed having
them with us.

junior High Activities
This year in Junior High we have been very busy and have had
lots of fun.
The eighth grade class spent much time and work preparing
their musical comedy, "Tom Sawyer." In music class we have
made notebooks containing newspaper articles related to music,
and articles we have written about things we have studied in
music. Several of us are in special singing groups which we en-
joy very much.
Many of the boys participated in football, basketball, and
track. The girls have studied cooking, grooming, home deco-
rating, and sewing in home economics.
We had two roller-skating parties, a Thanksgiving party, 3
and a Christmas party. At the end of the year we had our tradi-
In seventh grade we study math, science, literature, spelling,
English, geography, and Iowa History. Eighth grade subjects are:
math, science, literature, spelling, English, U.S. History, and
We have enjoyed Junior High. Thanks to our teachers we
are well prepared for and looking forward to our freshman year.

"What's there to be afraid of?" they thought,
"we're only leaping into a strange and unknown world
of dating, dancing, parties, and new activities causing
excitement and joy to the freshman class. The class
float, "We'll Whip 'Em" stirred the freshmen on far-
ther into the high school circle. Much to their dis-
pleasure, a forth place rating was given to the en-

the "most," hitting it off with two in a row. A Christ-

Going from the second floor to the third has ele-
vated the morale of the sophomores.
Numerous subjects are available this year. Many
have a choice of biology, algebra, home economics,
typing, industrial arts, agriculture, and driver edu-
cation. Approximately half of the sophomores took
driver education during the summer in order to take
more college preparatory courses during the school
year. The first semester classes were divided evenly
into English and literature. The second semester,
the two classes were reversed.
Home Economics II
The sophomores were enthusiastically given a
skating party by the freshmen. We are now attempt-
ing to repay both the freshmen and the juniors for a
enjoyable time. Members of the sophomore class will
soon assist the juniors in the entertainment of the
seniors at the Junior-Senior Prom. A number of the
sophomores will be serving as waiters and waitresses
at the Prom.
"They're Crusin' for a Brusin"' was the slogan of
the third place sophomore float. Homecoming at-
tendants were Jane Anderson and Roger Radke.

We're juniors now! And are now classified
as "upperclassmen," so we think. We have
finally attained that title, but have found that it
is not all fun. Our studies take up much of our
time. Too much, the juniors agree! There are
many courses offered to us: homemaking, agri-
culture, industrial arts, shorthand, typing,
geometry, chemistry, German, and the required
English and United States History courses.
Everyone is required to take four of diese sub-
jects and some of our more daring souls take
Then, if we still have a little time on our
hands, there are extracurricular activities to rid
us of our energy. The girls can participate in
drill team, F.H.A., and G.R.A. For the boys,
there is F.F.A., football, basketball, track, and
baseball. The Cyclone Staff, Scarlet and Black
Staff, German Club, Science Club, and Pep Club
are offered to all of us. For those who are
musically inclined, the Glee Clubs, Mixed Cho-
rus, marching band, and concert band prove to
be very rewarding and satisfying.
At the beginning of the school year, our
class put together a float which received second
place. Jene Anderson and Keith Endreson were
homecoming attendants from our class. Everyone
then worked hard for the success of our Junior
Class Play, "Headin' for a Weddin'." Much
time and money were spent on the last big event
for the juniors, the Junior-Senior Prom. After a
last week of panic, we settled down to a very en-
With a final rush, we found ourselves enjoying
a much-looked-forward-to summer vacation.

1961-62 Football Season
The cyclones turned out to be a team full of sur-
prises this year. After losing their first game to non-
conference Holstein, the Alta squad jelled to earn a 6
and 1 record in the conference.
One of the biggest surprises was the spirit of the
squad. Although they were slated to finish in the bottom
half of the conference, the team took heart and dug in.
The stubborn defense and fast, hard-hitting offense,
together with their new found confidence proved to be
the difference in this year's season.
The'leaders in various departments were as follows:
Defensive linebackers Dave Wolfe and Robert Radke
led with 70 and 55 tackles respectively. Dave Wolfe
was also the leading pass receiver, catching 19 passes
for 214 yards. Robert Radke was the team's kicker
averaging 41.5 yards per kick.
Paul Ruehmann was the leading passer, completing
33 of 69 attempts for 378 yards. He was also the team's
punter, averaging 31.9 yards per punt.
Douglas Patten was Alta's leading rusher, gaining a
total of 421 yards in 96 attempts for a 4.4 yards per
carry average. Douglas was also Alta's leading scorer.
I-Ie rushed for 7 touchdowns, passed for 2, and rushed
for 5 extra points.
ALTA 135 HOLSTEIN 26
In the season's opener, Alta came up on the short
end of the score after a hard fought game. The first
touchdown for Alta came when Robert Radke streaked
53 yards on a pass from Ruehmann.
ALTA 335 SANBORN 0
Alta rolled to its first victory of the season. The alert
defense and driving offense held Sanborn so tightly that
they got in cyclone territory once once.
ALTA 75 SUTHERLAND O
In one of this season's most exciting games Doug
Patten returned the opening kick-off 70 yards to score
the only touchdown of the game. In the last seconds
with the Sutherland team threatening, Mike Johnston
broke through the offense to recover a gurnble.
ALTA 14, AURELIA 12
After trailing 12 to O at halftime, Alta stormed back
to defeat our traditional rival in the last minute.
ALTA 7, I-IARTLEY O
In one of the closest games of the season, Alta's
defense stopped the opponents cold. The winning
touchdown came in the third quarter when Doug
Patten drove over from the two yard line.
ALTA 205 MILFORD 6
The tough defense and deceptive offense of Alta
took Milford by surprise. The high point came when
Dave Wolfe took a Milford fumble on the first bounce
and ran 33 yards for a touchdown.
ALTA 275 PAULLINA 34
With Alta leading 20 to 13 at halftime on a touch-
dovm by John Nordman, Alta held its own until the
last play of the game when Paullina scored. This last
play score not only Cost the cyclones the game but a
tie for the conference championship with Paullina.

1961-62 Basketball Season
The cyclones proved to be quite a surprise
team during the past season. Not only did they
finish third in the tough Sioux Valley Conference
with a record of nine wins and five losses, but
they also produced an overall winning record of
fourteen wins and eight losses while advancing
to the finals of the sectional tournament. The
cyclones were forced to settle for second place
in the county tournament as they lost to Albert
City-Truesdale in an overtime.
The season produced no "super-stars" but was
the result of the combined efforts of the entire
squad. Paul Ruehmann was the individual scoring
lead with 387 points, and also gained a berth on
the First All-Conference Team. Lichtenberg
gained a berth on the Second Team All-
Conference while pulling down 271 rebounds to
lead that department and set a new school
record. The old record was 241. Three other
players--David Wolfe, Stanley Fredericks, and
Gary Peterson--were named to the A11-
Conference Honorable Mention list while adding
their efforts to the cause. Another record which
fell was the rebound record. The "little" men
had to scrap but were able to bring down 937
rebounds to surpass the previous high of 772.
Although the loss of six seniors via graduation
will not go unnoticed, the "B" team, which
compiled a winning season, eleven wins and six
losses, may be able to supply individuals to fill
the gaps left by departing seniors.

Distribution of the 1962 Yearbooks ends another
year of hard work on the part of the Yearbook Staff.
With the help of our efficient editors, Janet Smith
and Lizabeth Peters, it was a very successful year.
The annual Yearbook Dance was a success again
this year. The highlight of the evening came with the
crowning of Connie Langlet and Gary Peterson as
Queen and King.

At the beginning of the second semester, a com-

Under the supervision of Mr. Skay, the staff tries to
give a complete and accurate report of activities at
school. There is a lot of work in organizing a paper
and everyone is expected to carry his or her share of
the work load.
Our thanks is extended to the Alta Advertiser for
making the 1962 Yearbook a success. giving us a large amount of room in the weekly paper.

German Club Activities
In October the organizational meeting of the Ger-
man Club was held. With the election of officers, the
supervision of Mr. Skay, and the framing of the con-
stitution, the activities of the German Club began.
At each meeting one of the members presented a
reading in German to the Club and thus the real pur-
pose, to promote German and the German language,
was accomplished. Also, at several meetings films of
Germany were shown.
During the Christmas holidays, the German Club
members visited several homes in the community and
sang German carols. Everyone was busy during De-
cember leaming the carols and practicing in the in-
strumental group which accompanied the carolers.
The month of February was filled with excitement
and preparations for the school carnival which was
held in March. The German Club conceived the idea
and various other organizations within the school
joined in to make the carnival a success.
With the numerous activities and events, the first
year of the Alta German Club ended in success.
Science Club Activities
The Science Club was formed by the high school
