TO THE STUDENTS OF THE ALTONA HIGH SCHOOL Congratulations for launching out into a new venture, that of publishing a yearbook. May it be a tie and also a fond remembrance of your high school days. Many of you will be wondering which vocation or profession you should enter. Now is a good time to give consideration to such thoughts. Set your goals high; strive steadfastly and unswervingly to accomplish your aims. But in choosing your profession bear in mind not how much you can get out of it yourself but rather how can I best serve God and my fellowmen. With such a goal your life will take on a new meaning and purpose. A life of service is infinitely more richer and satisfying than one that has selfish aims as its motive. TO THE GRADUATES Our good wishes go with you wherever you may go and whatever you may do. TO THE OTHER STUDENTS May you be encouraged to go on in your studies. TO ALL OF YOU Think on this verse— Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2. Tim. 2:15. D. W. Friesen Sons Ltd.

First, the high school grades recorded an enrolment which is larger than that of any previous year. Indeed, it was so large that for a period of some eight weeks there was an enrolment of sixty-four in a single room. Secondly, the new year witnessed the elevation of the high school section to the status of a Collegiate. This came about when a fourth teacher was added to the Collegiate staff. Thirdly, the new year saw the completion of forty years of teaching service by one of the teachers on the staff. We place this milestone in the career of one of our teachers last, not because it merits last position, but for the sake of emphasis. The first two milestones pale in com¬ parison. In this foreword, we would also like to thank the many businesses, institutions, and individuals who purchased advertising space in this year book. We also thank the people who made anonymous contributions. Without this financial assistance this year book could not have materialized. Inspector C. D. Voigt Each year the graduating class in various manners mark their passing through high school. All have the desire to enshrine some token for remembrance that they have passed along this road. What better way to achieve this aim than by the Year Book! Now is the time to make an inventory of your talents, abilities and requisites neces¬ sary for achieving your aim in life. All that any school and its instructors may contribute to your success is in giving information, inspiration and guidance. In life nothing is static, from here you must, must move on under your own power—any action taken must be yours. As your. leisure years close in upon you, may you relive again through the pages of this book those pleasant days when Hope was as bright as the Morning Star and all things were possible. Mr. D. M. Friesen The Chairman ' s Message On behalf of the Board of Trustees I would like to express to the staff and student body of the Altona Public Schools our sincere appreciation for the co-operation accorded and the work done in the past. I wish to state that our efforts for im¬ provements have been continuous. We have extended our playgrounds and added to the playground equipment. Due to the large in¬ crease in attendance we have provided addi¬ tional accommodation, and we trust that as a result you will be more able to enjoy your work. By adding the typewriting and ac¬ counting courses in the commercial category we have attempted to enlarge the curriculum to cover a wider field in education. To pro¬ vide a good library and a well equipped laboratory have been some of our main ob¬ jectives. Audio-visual education, as we begin to realize, has by now become a must on our school time-table. For this, too, the right kind of equipment has been provided. It has always been our aim to see our schools well stocked with the necessary supplies and to see to it that the best teaching aids and facilities are made available in order to make your work more interesting and profitable. It has been a pleasure indeed, to have had the privilege of providing you with a well qualified teaching staff, modern school build¬ ings, and improved teaching facilities. The recently agreed-upon salary schedule will no doubt stand out as a milestone in our endeavours for improvements and for greater interest in education. It will mean, we believe, not only more satisfactory remun¬ eration and greater security of tenure for our teachers, but also it will foster and uphold the very best relationship, co-operation and harmony between us, the school board and our teaching staff. In a rapidly changing world it might not be too presumptuous to think of the possi¬ bility and realization of a larger school administration area on the high school level of which Altona could well become the center, and to anticipate a change-over from our present high school offering to a broader curriculum with a choice of academic, agricul¬ tural, commercial and home economic courses to better suit your interests and abilities to give you the training that you will need in our complex structure of society when you assume the responsibilities of one of its citizens tomorrow.

On Altona staff since 1951 THE PRINCIPAL ' S MESSAGE Our present school year has been a busy one. More work and responsibilities have stemmed from the growth in our school pop¬ ulation during the last few years when in the elementary grades it rose from 266 to 364, and on the high school level it expanded from 39 to 84. To accommodate this increase of pupils more classrooms, equipment and supplies had to be provided, and the teaching staff extended from 10 to 14. With a larger enrolment have also come what we may call the healthy growing pains of expansion. To solve some of the problems and to satisfy new needs and desires we have had to replan our school routine carefully. To relieve a developing playground congestion we have adopted the more satisfactory plan of staggered recesses; to give more classes access to the school auditorium for P.T., Music and Visual Education, we have adjusted that time table accordingly. During the cur¬ rent school year the high school time table had to be rebuilt completely a number of times. First, when by November (because of our building program) more classrooms becqme available we were at last enabled to divide our large group of (64) Grade IX and X students into separate classes; and then again when, for the second term, on the high school level we changed over from a 3 to 4 teachers basis. It has been our aim to offer leadership in recreation and extra educational opportunities. Endeavors such as sports, the annual Field Day, parties, a Christmas program, the an¬ nual Educational Tour, Education Week feat¬ ures and participation in the Musical Festival, have been not only continued but also im¬ proved upon, and in addition we have success¬ fully organized a Glee Club, established a High School Choir, and introduced graduation exercises. It is gratifying to note that the I.S.C.F. has taken root in our collegiate student body and is manifesting a measure of strength. We might ask ourselves, “Are these extra activities worth while?” It has been our ob¬ jective to make them educational and useful for broadening the student’s horizon. But we should not forget that the regular classwork that goes on from day to day is still the most important force in our educational en¬ deavors; it is by that work, efficiently done, that we advance step by step to higher goals of achievements. It is a pleasure to know that our teachers and students have displayed an optimism and a willingness to go the extra mile. There has been an urge to improve; a passion for doing things. The spirit of enterprise has made us a happier group, rightfully proud of our accomplishments. This year book partly mir¬ rors our school activities and shall enable us to look back with pleasant recollections. More of our students now realize that you have to do a bite of homework to get ahead; that a will to do and a soul to dare are gainful assets; that one must not be afraid to beat schedules, even though the herd put up a clamour that the effort is killing and should be prevented. This attitude spells growth, and education is growth. Ulman’s statement becomes understandable: “That men will some day reach the summit of the world means little. That they should want to reach it and try to reach it means every¬ thing.” If we want to become materially and spiritually truly great we must set our gaze God- ward, do honest work, practise self-dis¬ cipline, and with the help of knowledge, courage and perseverence we shall succeed. 6 THE FACULTY Peter F.

G. SIEMENS, Grades VI-VII MR. J. E. DYCK IN HONOR OF The close of the first term of the 1953-54 school year marked the completion of forty years of teaching service by Mr. J. E. Dyck. A good many of these forty years were spent in teaching the children of Altona. During these years Mr. Dyck has given yeoman service. He is well known throughout the community for his work with the local brass band. He has given freely of his time and talent in teaching woodworking to the boys in school. In addition, Mr. Dyck has been teaching giant-size classes for years. In fact, his classes have frequently had an enrolment almost double the recommended size. We wish to take this opportunity to pay public tribute to Mr. Dyck, whose conscientiousness, friendliness and willingness to be of service to this community have endeared him to his pupils and to the citizens of Altona. 10 With eyes clearly focussed on the future, with feet standing firmly, in the present, with hearts revering Canada ' s great tradi¬ tions of the Past—may the members of the Class of ' 54 bring Joy to parents, Pride to teachers, Honour to nation and fulfill¬ ment to themselves. 11 GRADE EDWARD GEORGE DUECK President of the Student Council, and a member of the Year Book committee.

When we leave the classrooms where we have labored through the last restless year of our high school education we will frequently remember our teachers. There will be the memories of Mr. Penner ' s Maths periods with ellipses and parabolas. There will be recollections of Mr. Siemens ' Physics periods with the studies of Wheatstone bridges and Newton ' s Laws. There will also be memories of Mr. McCullough ' s Composition assignments and research papers. And then, of course, we shall always remember our German periods with Mr. Kroeker in which we learned all about dies, der and das and all the declination and conjugation that go with them. We will, of course, never forget Della ' s joviality, Arlene ' s long research papers or Norman ' s love for German. Then there are Douglas witty remarks, Johnny ' s many pencils, Willie ' s singing, Elmer ' s hockey interests and Irma ' s marks in German. In fall we had a magazine selling campaign to earn money for our extra-curricular activities. We would like to congratulate the top sales¬ men who were Donald Fehr and Victor Schulz. Other important events in the school year were: a Hallowe ' en social, a Christmas social and a skating party. These, needless to say, were enjoyed by all. Although we are the graduating class of 1954 it doesn ' t matter too much which year it is. Like all graduates of all years we suffer from a lack of peripheral vision. Our attention is focused on the end of the present school year and on very little else. Graduation seems so final. It almost seems as if June 30 will be the day when we will line up and be issued the tools with which to build our future. We will venture forth to the lumber, proceed to build a beautiful life with built-in television sets, new, long, low cars, and all the other luxuries of our scientific age. How¬ ever, when our peripheral vision begins to improve we will probably find that the tools feel rather awkward in our hands, that they are only as good as we made them; we may find the lumber yard rather difficult to find. The television sets may prove slightly elusive. However, as we bruise our shins on the obstacles in our paths and bang our head against brick walls, we will find that the outlines of our tools will become more positively defined. We may even find that we were in the lumber yard all the time and didn ' t realize it. At present, however, our vision of the future is about as my analogy.

Not until last year, however, did our school get in contact with their executive. A number of students were sincerely interested in this kind of work and consequently organized to have Christian activities outside of school hours. The com¬ mittee nominated were: Mr. Orlando Saw- atzky, sponsor; Willie Braun, president; Clarence Guenter, vice-president; Linda Schulz, secretary; and Marie Hoeppner, so¬ cial convenor. On every Wednesday after four, we gath¬ ered in one of the classrooms for an informal Bible discussion, and on Thursday mornings we gathered for a mission prayer meeting. We have been favored by a number of good speakers for our Bible discussions, among whom were: Mr. A. A. Dyck, Ecua¬ dor, South America; Rev. A. A. Habeggar, Lame Deer, Montana; and the general secre¬ tary of the I.S.C.F., Mr. Wilbur Sutherland, of Toronto. Their messages helped the stu¬ dents to realize their own responsibilities toward God. Our social activities have been rare, but inspiring. At the end of November, a large group of us went to Winnipeg for a gymn party at Bethesda Church auditorium. On February 2nd, we had a sleigh ride to Buffalo Creek and following that we met in the school auditorium for a bean feed. In retrospect of the year’s activities, we can say that we would not want to be without the I.S.C.F. in the future.

A large portion of the student body had remained in the au¬ ditorium to discuss the possibility of an operatic production. The idea was received with great enthusiasm, and within a week, work on Gilbert and Sullivan’s Mikado” Mr. A. C. KROEKER Director £7Ae utfifona JAtiyA “Me 4 was begun. The casting proved to be a | difficult first hurdle, but after much delib- ' eration, the leads were finally chosen, and work began in earnest. Since the Glee CVjb had no monies to spend, economy became the password. Only one copy of the musical score was purchased, while a second was borrowed. With these two scores, practices were held and the laborious process of mem¬ orizing words and music continued week after week. There seemed to be an endless number of songs to learn and progress appeared to be very slow. Then quite suddenly, with the arrival of February, a new and quickening spirit caught the singers. Time was actually growing short. Practices intensified. Every night of the week was occupied with Glee Club activity in one form or another. Faithfully the leads and their pianist, Audrey Friesen, trudged to Mr. Kroeker’s house, there to be rehearsed hour after hour by Mrs. Kroeker who coached all the solo and part singing. A poster drive was launched, and soon colorful advertise¬ ments, made by co-operative students, were stuck in windows and on counters from | Gretna to Winkler. Oriental lanterns were being constructed by girls with a creative 1 flare, while others were painting the set. I Costumes came pouring in as forty-one Glee Clubbers were turned loose on the community 32 ' iyA 9 rAool ' Siee ui with instructions to “beg, borrow or steal” any items of clothing that even vaguely resembled Japanese wearing apparel. The last few days before the performances were really hectic. The auditorium became a beehive of activity as willing clubbers swarmed over the stage, setting up footlights, repairing the curtains, changing the wings and erecting the sets. The houselights dimmed and the curtains parted on the Glee Club’s very first presen¬ tation of The Mikado.” It was a tense moment. For almost two hours the per¬ formers had chatted and fussed nervously in their dressing rooms, while they waited for their make-up to be applied or changed into their costumes. The air had been charged with electrictiy . and nerves were getting frayed. But now the opening bars of the overture were ringing out into the packed auditorium and the show was on! The cast played to capacity audiences for three nights, March 16, 17, 18, netting over three-hundred and fifty dollars. In addition, they performed a benefit show a fourth night, the proceeds of which went to the Altona Volunteer Fire Brigade. The audiences were wonderfully receptive and tired Glee Clubbers went home still stunned and hardly believing that it could be true. “They loved it” they would whisper in excited, incredulous tones, and their eyes would shine with the warm glow that comes with the satisfaction of having done a good job. With the production and presentation of “The Mikado” a musical milestone has been reached. With hard work and a willingness to strive toward new achievements, it can be surpassed. 33 a . 34 sly followed by our cloakroom Music is the universal language of mankind. —Longfellow 36 time; 15.

A few common causes of fire and safety measures are: 1. Rubbish: Dispose of rubbish in a safe orderly way. Do not burn rubbish near buildings. 2. Flammable Liquids: Using or handling flammable liquids near fire not only can cause heavy property loss but the loss of human lives as well. 3. Electric Power: Electrical power and appliances are most convenient to the household when properly used. Do not overload circuits. The fuse is a safety device. Use the correct amperage of fuse only. Have only a licensed electrician make alterations or repairs. REMEMBER A careful person seldom has a fire; a clean orderly place seldom burns. Be a good neighbor — help prevent fires and save property and lives. See us for your Coverage needs on Farm or Residential Property. It Costs so Little and may mean so Much.
