Dedication TO ALL WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED TOWARD THE CREATION OF YESTERDAY’S VISION, TO¬ DAY’S REALITY, AND TOMORROW’S REWARD, THIS BOOK IS GRATEFULLY DEDICATED As the school term draws to a close it is well for us to pause for a while, think on the events of the year, assess the worth of each, and make resolutions for the future. A school consists not of buildings alone, but is largely an intangible thing often spoken of as tradition. The real Altona School is not a beautiful new edifice, but something much older. It is a thing that has been built during the years by the efforts of former students, teachers, caretakers and trustees. It includes the class photographs on the walls, the trophies displayed, the school colors, the year¬ books, the customary parties—in short, all those things which recall to mind the efforts of those who preceded you, and which have to a large extent governed your actions and thoughts during your school life. You who are graduating this year will find much to remember with pleasure in the years to come. You have studied faithfully and well, you have enriched your lives by participating in sports, drama, debating, and music festival. You have sought to maintain the standards set by others before you. You have given your best, and you have the satisfaction of knowing that your teachers and parents are proud of your work. Your triumphs and successes have become a part of the tradition of Altona School. The laurels you have won, the standards of excellence you have set, the moral worth of your lives— all these are no longer yours alone, but have become a part of the institution, and in the years to come you will be proud to know that others are striving to follow in your footsteps, to main¬ tain and improve the standards set by you, and to be worthy to attend your school. J. W. Butcher. 2 Chairmans Message On behalf of the Altona School Board, it gives me great pleasure to extend our heartiest con¬ gratulations to the students and staff of the Altona Collegiate. To the graduates must go special greetings. To them it represents the end of at least one phase of their education and the beginning of another. To them, I understand, goes the major cred ' t for the publication of this yearbook. We trust that the years spent in the Altona School system have laid the best groundwork possible and that this last half term will, in part, make up for those other years of difficult conditions. We sincerely believe that the Student Council can and does contribute tremendously toward a happy school. We greatly appreciate the efforts of this body, both for their contribution toward school morale and for the purchases made for the school. The fact that much time and effort have gone into making the purchases possible at this time speaks to us of a true interest in this collegiate. The role of the school board in the operation of the education facilities of any school becomes ever more important. You have our assurance that we will be constantly seeking ways by which we can better serve the youth of our community. We feel that with the facilities added in this past term we have come a long way. Doubtless other problems will arise but with the co-operation of the staff and student body we hope that we can constantly improve and make our school THE SCHOOL for us. Once again, congratulations, and the best wishes of the Board for a successful school term. Art Braun, Chairman, Altona School Board. 3 Message From Mr. Miller To the Students of Altona Collegiate: I am happy to extend through your yearbook our sincere best wishes from the Department of Education. Life, in many respects, is measured by milestones. Each school year, but more particularly the final one, is a most significant milestone. Gradua¬ tion from school has thus become a very important event in your lives. It is the climax of all your efforts and ambitions so far. It is a time to reflect upon the sincerity of your efforts and it is a time to consider again the direction of your ambitions. It may interest you to know that we have followed with interest your progress through school. Our school inspectors have visited you regularly. We have been interested in your teachers and the trustees of your school. They have all worked to provide a good education for you. Are you now ready to accept the challenge of life and in turn give to the world in even greater measure than it has already given to you? If you give less you will be ever in its debt; if you are prepared to give more, consider your school days have been well spent and that you are a person of whom we shall all be proud. I am sure you are ready to accept the challenge. W. C. Miller, Minister of Education. 4 A. C. KROEKER, B.A., B.Pd.

The new Collegiate is now a reality—a lasting monument to the trust and faith which the citizens of Altona place in their most prized possession—their children. The additional space and modem facilities which are now at our disposal, have already done much to augment the efficiency of the educational process, and will undoubtedly continue to do so in ever increasing measure in the years to come. Education is big business. To function ef¬ fectively, it requires the combined efforts of the school, the homes, the churches, the School Board, the Department of Education with its divisional representative, and sundry public service organiza¬ tions. In our community, these various institu¬ tions, like the component parts of a great, well co-ordinated leviatnon, have rendered yeoman service in providing the best possible educational opportunities for our young people. Sustained effort in this direction cannot help but pay re¬ warding dividends in the future. At the very core of the youth’s education is, of course, the classroom teacher who daily works with the raw material. It has given me much personal satisfaction to work with the teachers who have staffed our schools during the past year, not only because each has fulfilled the task of classroom tuition so effectively, but because all have given me much kind and indulgent co¬ operation in this, my “freshman” year at ad- ministrational duties. V But the final responsibility of drawing maxi¬ mum returns from the educational process rests with the student himself, for he and he alone, can integrate the knowledge which he has acquired at school, with the work-a-day world into which he will step with alarming abruptness when he leaves the cloistered halls of his alma mater. With the graduates of ’56, I would like to leave the simple, yet profound lesson implied in an ancient Grecian legend which tells of a boy who attempted to outwit the Oracle. With a live bird in his hand he approached the sage’s presence. He would ask him, “Is the bird dead?” If he answered “Yes,” the boy would open his hand and let it fly away. If the Oracle said, “It is alive,” he would crush it in his hand and drop it dead to the ground. So the boy came to the Oracle. “Is this bird dead or alive?” The Oracle looked long and searchingly into the young man’s face. “My lad, it is as you will, it is in your hands!” FACULTY J. I.

Mil»L ajU r J2r | mrm f m % i, j B £ ' w 9 ■ii f i 1 V ; ' liiiK IHSHEgHI ' Wm W 1 Valedictory We, the graduating class of 1956, in this brief moment of glory, realize with mixed emotions that while the entire world is now opening up to us, a happy and carefree era is rapidly drawing to a close. There is little doubt, that the details of our school life, formerly so monotonous, will in the future be recalled as pleasant moments. The recollections of our school life will for the most part be happy ones, for time will dull or even obliterate the few bitter experiences we may have encountered. There will be pleasant memories of our teachers, whose good will and efforts were often spurned. Future encounters with the writings of Milton and Shakespeare will invariably remind us of Mr. Kroeker’s Poetry and Drama periods. Further struggles with trigonometric functions will bring back the visions of Mr. Thiessen’s determined efforts to instil in us a knowledge of Mathematics. Mr. Warkentin’s fervent desire that the failure rate in Chemistry be nil, and Mr. Goertzen’s insistence on our acquiring a good vocabulary will linger long in our memories. We shall remember for years to come, Mr. Kroeker’s recent complimentary statement in which he referred to the Grade XII’s as being an “exceptional” class. This information came as a shock to many of us, for scarcely a year ago one of the other teachers plainly stated that we were the “deadest bunch” of students in the whole school. Despite the possibility of being accused of conceit, we prefer the more complimentary remark. One of the boys will never forget that a teacher referred to his vocal efforts during a study period as “the yowling of an alleycat,” while another may recall being classified as a child prodigy when he claimM that boys became interested in girls at the age of 11 or 12. The girls will always remember the time when the principal caught them in the auditorium during a study period with not a book anywhere nearby. We, however, have several more serious and sensible achievements to be humbly proud of. for we constitute the largest Grade XII class in the history of The Altona High. Also, we as a class put on the Collegiate’s only dramatic pro¬ duction: a three-act satirical comedy, “Arms and the Man.” The results of the annual fall magazine subscription campaign indicated that the senior class had the highest value of sales, even though they have the fewest students. For this praise¬ worthy endeavor we compliment Don Fehr. We leave these achievements as a goal for those Grade XI’s who will fill our places next year. I cannot think of a more appropriate challenge than the one made by the poet of “In Flander’s Fields” when he says: “To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.” It is our sincere desire that you will meet the challenge and surpass our humble efforts, thereby making our school an institution we can be truly proud of. We wish to thank our parents, our teachers, the members of the School Board, and the tax¬ payers who have made this a possibility. Having glanced at a few events in the past, it is now time to look toward the future. June 30 will mark the day, when we leave school life to go out into the world, either directly to our jobs or into further institutions of training. That moment will be like the moment when a swimmer dives into the water to begin a long-distance swim. We are the swimmers. Our future life is the body of water we must cross, and the distant shore is our aim in life. Having received our reliminary training in school, we are now faced y the real task ahead of us, the conquering of which shall require all the courage and deter¬ mination we possess. Human powers will at times be insufficient and we shall then have to rely on Divine assistance. Therefore, as we strike out into the stream of life, let us maintain a constant faith in the powers of the Almighty God and trust in Him to aid us in our search for service, success and happiness.

APPARATUS: Two dozen energetic individuals on the road of learning, trying mentally and physically to pack their craniums with knowledge for future combustion on the road of responsible living. METHOD: Through the months of September to June, this conglomeration of human beings was put under the strain of harassing assignments, gruelling tests and monotonous reviews, relieved only by intermittent periods of play. Their reactions were observed and recorded. OBSERVATIONS: Bernard Penner—was found to be quiet and studious—fond of bicycle riding—a freshman member of the Student Council. Dora Toews—was observed to be dark-haired and ' friendly—a bookworm—lives on the farm. Justina Penner—quiet—has an affinity for Tina—hobby is fancy work. Kenneth Hiebert—very lively—athletic—dislikes History specifically and homework in general. George Zacharias—small and mischievous—often observed behind a store counter. Peter Schmidt—tall, dark and quiet—commutes from the Altona village. Vernon Striemer—sweet tooth, usually wears a grin—very friendly. David Hoeppner—member of the Student Council—is attracted to water pistols and violins. Leona Braun—a quiet lass from the farm—dislikes homework. Menno Kehler—lives in Neubergthal—infectious smile. Raymond Krahn—prefers chattering and joking to working. Cliff Peters—has an aversion for telephone party lines—comes from the farm. Mary Dyck—works at Esso Service Station—her future will be no problem. Jolene Lesperance—dark, quiet and neat—enjoys music and plays piano. Esther Giesbrecht—quiet and studious—enjoys History. Jake Wiebe—bookworm—expert on model airplanes. Dennis Neufeld—happy-go-lucky—nicknamed “Shorty”—studies cramp his style. Reginald Braun—tall, dark, and handsome—attracts opposite sex—active in hockey and baseball. Marlene Epp—member of the Student Council—musical—well liked by classmates. Marilyn Stobbe—brown eyed—sharp tongued—plays piano. Shirley Braun—studious—heads class—pleasant and cheerful. Rosemary Driedger—pretty—hard working —left at Easter for Churchill High, Winnipeg. Arno Driedger—twin to Rosemary—left our school also to continue his studies at Churchill High, Win¬ nipeg. Tina Rempel—Tina is quiet and studious. This young blonde is usually seen with Justina. CONCLUSION: From the above experiment we conclude that in this group of young individuals are talents which will be developed in years to come and which will enable their owners to take their places as leaders in the community of tomorrow. 18 I| 1 iwjfc Is Front row: Mr. Warkentin, Don Braun (business manager), Adelaide Giesbrecht (assistant editor), Audrey Friesen (editor), Don Fehr (advertising), Mr. Thiessen.

EDITOR ' S MESSAGE An event which marked the school term 1955-56 as one of special significance was the construction of a new Collegiate. To com¬ memorate this advance in the educational facilities of Altona, the Collegiate Student Council under¬ took to sponsor a yearbook. The yearbook has been planned with this idea in mind: to give a cross-sectional view of the past school year, the activities and achievements of the students and especially the new Collegiate building. Many hours of labor have gone into the plan¬ ning of this yearbook and much credit is to be given to students who participated so willingly. The publication of this book marks a major achievement on the part of the students, and has been responsible for creating a feeling of pride in our school, and also a feeling of unity among its students. The yearbook committee wishes to thank all advertisers, without whose support this project would have been impossible, and also the numer¬ ous persons who gave so generously of their time and advice.

C. Kroeker. Though music is a part of the school cur¬ riculum, choir practices are limited to one period on Friday morning}. The choir sang at the official school opening, at a Sunday morning service in the Bergthaler Church and a Christmas carol service. The climax to months of rehearsing came with their appearance at the Southern Manitoba Musical Festival. Despite close competition from two other high school choirs, the Altona choir captured the Dr. S. S. Toni trophy for the third successive year. Marks awarded to the choir were 87 for the test piece, “Linden Lea,” and 84 for their own selection, “God So Loved the World.” 25 Soon after the completion of the Collegiate the School Board purchased and installed a baby grand piano in the auditorium. This fine instrument has since been the source of much entertainment. A Hi-Fi set was also installed during this time. The purchase of this set was inspired by a gift of symphony and concert records from Mr. L. Erk. Several businessmen, to¬ gether with the Glee Club, saw the need for adequate equipment to reproduce this music at its finest, and purchased a Hi- Fidelity turntable, amplifier and speakers for the purpose. Piano and Hi-Fi Set COLLEGIATE OCTETTE The Collegiate Octette has been in existence for two years and was organized and is directed by Mr. Kroeker. The present group differs slightly from last year’s octette due to students leaving school, but the majority of members are the same. Members of the octette are: Judy Friesen, Verna Braun, Adelaide Giesbrecht, Merla Braun, Gerald Loewen, Walter Braun, Ray Dueck, Ronald Hoeppner and Audrey Friesen (pianist). The Octette has participated in school events, but its main activity has been entertaining at local banquets and public gatherings. Though the Octette is composed of Collegiate members, it is an extra-curricular organization. Its members are a group of young people who enjoy singing good music. Their repertoire con¬ sists of semi-classical and light music. Some of their favourites are a medley from “Oklahoma!”, Negro spirituals and a novelty arrangement of “Dry Bones.” Collegiate Octette 26 Len Pokrat Runnel Elmer Hildebrand 7 riesen WINNERS OF INTER-HIGH BONSPIEL TEAM ATTENDING WINNIPEG BONSPIEL Len Pokrant, skip Norm Hiebert, third Frank Toews, second Vernon Striemer, lead Edgar Friesen, third Larry Buhr, second Don Zacharias, lead Thiessen Transportation T rophy FOOTBALL STATISTICS Teacher-Student Hockey Game P.T.

On March 3, fifteen Altona Collegiate stalwarts finally and conclusively proved their superiority over their teachers ... at hockey, at any rate. The Braun-Braun-Loewen line led the student team with four goals and five assists, whereas Len Dyck, the game’s “bad man,” spent two sessions in the penalty box. The game was high¬ lighted by Elmer Hildebrand’s spectacular net- minding finesse, displayed when he blocked Mr. H. H. Goertzen’s low drive from the blue line. In the final moments of play, with the opposition merely trailing by six goals, Elmer Hildebrand. student goalie, made a desperate move. Leaving the goal unguarded he joined the forwards and managed to score an assist. The final score stood at 9-2, and as nobody seems to remember who scored the teachers’ goals two brave men will fade into anonymity unless they invent a mathe¬ matical formula or a new history date. In retrospect, Principal Albert Kroeker, who sparked the team to defeat, had this to say: “It was anybody’s game, right up to the dying moments of play.” Certainly spectators and players alike spent an enjoyable evening.

The purpose of a stundent council is to plan an active program of extra¬ curricular activities and also projects to finance these undertakings. Extra-curricular activities are beneficial to a school because they provide a welcome change from the monotony of studies and they help to develop a feeling of comradeship and unity among students. All social and extra-curricular events seen on the following pages were either sponsored or organized by the student council. The major project this term was the sponsorship of a yearbook. All these activities require finances and the students undertook various projects with this end in view. Financially, the 1955-56 student council has been very successful and raising and managing finances has become “big business” for the students. The total turnover this year has approached $1,000. The student council as an organization has much merit: it teaches simple democracy; it teaches self- reliance; it builds school spirit. 20 CALENDAR ' 55- ' 56 A.C. ACTIVITIES August—School commences.

The Inter-School Christian Fellowship has been in existence in Canada for many years. Its purpose and aims are well expressed in its motto, which is: “To know Christ, and to make Him known.” Three years ago a representative of this organization visited our school and as a result a number of interested students formed ' an Inter-School Fellowship here. Although the I.S.C.F. has been a relatively small group it has been to many students a source of inspiration and strength. This year’s committee consists of Irene Artes, president; Anne Falk, vice- president; Grace Heinrichs, secretary; Sara Bergen, publicity secretary; and Walter Braun, social convener. Every Thursday after four we gather in one of the classrooms for informal Bible discussions. We have had a number of good speakers, among whom were Rev. H. J. Gerbrandt, Rev. J. Guenter, Miss Helen Willms from Matheson Island, Miss Marie Duerksen, missionary in India, and Miss Esther Patkau, in Japan. We have also had several interesting and instructive films and slides, and a social. This year we plan to hold the I.S.C.F. con¬ ference here in Altona. The I.S.C.F. groups from Winkler, Steinbach and Manitou will take part in this annual affair, which will be under the leadership of Mr. Don Ford, the staff member for Manitoba. We hope that it will prove a successful and effective climax to the year’s I.S.C.F. activities. MAGAZINE CAMPAIGN The magazine campaign was more successful than ever this fall. It was the Student Council’s first big fund-raising activity. Subscriptions for the following firms, Maclean-Hunter, Curtis Distributors and D. W. Friesen Sons Ltd., totalled a gross of approximately $900.00 and enlarged the council’s bank account by some $300.00. Though almost the entire student body con¬ tributed toward the general effort, the bulk of the sales were made by crack salesmen like Don Fehr, Don Braun, Irwin Kehler and Bernard Penner, shown discussing “business” with the secretary in the picture (left). To Don Fehr goes the credit for 30 per cent of the returns. 32 TRIP TO WINNIPEG On the seventeenth of February we assembled at the Collegiate at eight o’clock in the morning anxiously awaiting two buses which were to take us on our annual tour of Winnipeg. Upon arriving in our capital, our first stop was at Weston Shops. We were guided through a number of large buildings where we saw the reconditioning of locomotives and the production of machine parts. We also visited Canada Packers, where we ate lunch in the canteen, then toured the plant. We were shown all the processes through which an animal passes before it results in the finished products. 33 Three Heroic Soldiers Bluntschli—Larry Buhr Raina—Audrey Friesen Sergius—Frank Toews Louka—Irmgard Wieler Petkoff—Elmer Hildebrand Catherine—Irene Artes Nicola—Len Pokrant Russian Officer—Brad Braun Set—Gerald Loewen and Elmer Hildebrand Lighting and Special Effects—Don Fehr and Brad Braun Properties—Grace Heinrichs Make-up—Rosemary Howe Prompter and Call Boy—Don Fehr Costumes—Malabar’s Director and Producer—Mr. A. C. Kroeker 34 the MAN 7 never apologize!” “Oh! The chocolate cream soldier!” Early in February, rehearsals began for a production of “Arms and the Man” by G. B. Shaw. This play was presented by the Grade XII class under the direction of its Drama teacher, Mr. Kroeker. It must be admitted that Mr. Kroeker did not meet with much enthusiasm when he first men¬ tioned producing this play, for most students felt that it was too big a job to tackle. But as time wore on enthusiasm mounted and when the performances were over, everyone was ready and willing to do it all over again. Roles were not difficult to assign, for at the time the Grade XII class consisted of only eleven people. So all actors had to double as stage hands, advertisers, etc. A great deal of ingenuity and hard work were required in presenting the drama, for the new auditorium was not equipped for such an undertaking. But youthful enthusiasm can overcome many obstacles and though the set was held together mainly by thumb tacks, brown paper and crossed fingers, it proved to be adequate. The three performances of “Arms and the Man” were presented on March 9 and 10, as a climax to Education Week. They were well attended and the profit made by the students will go toward buying equipment for the stage. Production of this drama proved to be a rewarding experience for all concerned and it was greatly enjoyed. CANDIDS HALLOWEEN and INITIATION SOCIAL On a dark night in late October, mysterious and rather weird forms were seen making their way in the general direction of Altona Collegiate. These curious looking creatures assembled in the auditorium, the judges appeared, and goblins, ghosts, Indians, Colonial ladies and gentlemen, cavemen, cowboys, and various animals began a parade around the hall. Three prizes were awarded: The prize for the funniest costume went to Mr. Warkentin and Mr. Goertzen, who posed as a gendarme and his lady; the prize for the most original costume was captured by a group from the wild west-—Irmgard Wieler and Jud Friesen as two cowgirls, with Adelaide Giesbrecht and Audrey Friesen as their rather angular nag. Irene Wiebe and Rosemary Howe captured the prize for the best costumes, posing as an Indian brave and squaw. The Halloween social continued with an original and spine-chilling story, written and recorded by Mr. Kroeker. The next item on the program caused the Grade X, XI and XII students to grin in happy anticipation while the grade niners began to shiver and shake. Mild forms of torture were employed to initiate the newcomers to high school life. Mr. Thiessen, a new teacher, was given a roller-skating lesson—with a downy pillow strap¬ ped to his midriff. The next morning all were made to scrub the school sidewalks with tooth¬ brushes. Mr. Thiessen, disguised as chief engineer of a locomotive, officiated. Another highlight of the evening was ducking for apples, followed by games. A skit, describing the antics of a caveman dentist and his helpless patient, was enacted by Les Friesen and Don Braun. These enjoyable activities were climaxed with a lunch, which even the ghostly visitors and ‘fazzled” grade nines were able to enjoy. CHRISTMAS BANQUET On December 23, after a gruelling week of exams, the students attended their annual Christmas banquet. The banquet committee was bustling and scurrying around, desperately trying to keep scalloped potatoes hot and jellied salads cold. The tables which stretched in a long T down the hallway, were beautifully set and decorated—thanks to the Decoration Committee. A gaily decorated Christmas tree stood near the tables with a large assortment of gifts beneath it. By 7.15, everyone had gathered at the tables, grace had been said, and a jolly jumble of laughter, talk and clatter of dishes ensued. After the last slice of chiffon cake had been consumed, Rev. Freer, guest speaker for the evening, gave us a very interesting address. Carols were sung while preparations were made for the raffle draw of a Panda bear and a mantel radio. Audrey Friesen, presi¬ dent of the Student Council, gave us an outline of the activities of the council during the first half of the term. Following this, the Octette sang several selections. The evening was concluded by the dis¬ tribution of gifts. Table lamps were pre¬ sented to Mr. Thiessen and Mr. Goertzen. Mr. Warkentin received a set of books and Mr. Kroeker a pair of cuff links. Each student received a gift through our annual Christmas Box. The evening was successful and following it, the students left the halls of learning for a ten-day Christmas holiday. THE SKATING PARTY In midwinter, the students of Altona Collegiate assembled at the local arena for a skating party. All the old “pros” were there, and even a few newcomers awkwardly wobbled around. It was observed that the latter, for obvious reasons, had a frantic, glazed look in their eyes. The star attractions were the four collegiate instructors, who managed to stay “sunny side up” through¬ out the evening. At ten o’clock there was a mass exodus toward the school auditorium, where a lunch consisting of piping hot tomato soup, doughnuts and Cokes were served. Entertainment was offered by a group of boys who sang “16 Tons” and “Chain Gang” with effortless “har¬ mony.” Exhausted but happy, the students tramped home through the snow, with sounds of shouting and gay laughter following them. 38 SILVER TEA Mrs. Butcher and Irene Wiebe, Judy Friesen and Rosemary Howe who acted as waitresses. Following the official open ' ng of the new collegiate by Honourable W. C. Miller, Minister of Education, a silver tea, sponsored by the Student Council of Altona Collegiate, was held in the spacious auditorium. Wives of the faculty members, trustees, and inspector presided at the tea services, and High School girls acted as waitresses. Floral decorations and soft music from the recently purchased Hi-Fi set added an air of distinction to the proceedings. Approximately three hundred guests were guided through various classrooms, library, com¬ mercial room and laboratory by the High School boys. On returning to the auditorium, they were served a dainty lunch of sandwiches, cake and tea. Sixty dollars was added to the school treasury as a result of the tea. BAND CONCERT In early spring, the collegians were entertained by the Middle River School Band. Forty smartly uniformed young students took their places on the stage in our new collegiate. Their opening number was a rousing Mexican tango. This was followed by the very modem “Waltz in Blue,” the overture from the operetta “The Student Prince” and a variety of marches and popular songs. A musical skit, featuring Hot-lips Harry and Bop-Riding Hood, caused the students to break out into gales of laughter. The final number, “Rock Around the Clock,” received such an ovation that the performance was repeated. After the concert the band members were served a delicious lunch by the members of the Student Council. The band then continued their tour of schools in Manitoba before returning to the United States. 39 ENROLLMENT Grades Miss H. Martens . Miss K. Klassen . Miss T. Thiessen ... Miss A.

Hiebert, Collegiate Janitor 3n Hfmortam Mr. C. Sawatzky Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. —Matth. 25:21. Mr. Cornelius Sawatzky will be remembered by his many friends as a faithful servant. For thirty-two years he served the students and teachers as caretaker of the Altona Schools. Mr. Sawatzky worked conscientiously to keep the school build¬ ings and grounds clean and tidy. He took great pride in his work and he tried to instil this pride in all those he associated with. His steadfast devotion to duty kept him at his post from early morning until late at night. The Master found His servant at his work one morning and He called him from his labors, to labor no more. May Mr. Sawatzky’s many acts of kindness to each and everyone of us, linger in our hearts as a memorial to our friend. Teachers, students and trustees who worked with Mr. Sawatzky, will join in extending sincere sympathy to Mrs. Sawatzky and family. 42 Miss Kathy Klassen Grade l-B Misj Tina Thiessen 43 Miss Norma Spalding Grade 1II-B 44 Mr. J. G. Siemens Grade VII A Message to The Faculty and Students We are living in an exciting, fascinating and also frightening age. The technical and material advances of the recent past have been tremendous, and the rapid changes resulting thereby cause con- stan: adjustment to be made. Each new generation growing up must confront and attempt to resolve the problems facing it. Basic to gaining a proper perspective of our age and its peculiar problems is a study of our past with particular attention to the causes that lead to our particular situation. One of the great problems of today is the increasing secularization that threatens to invade every sphere of our lives. It is one of the most important duties of the present- day collegiate teacher to see to it that the spiritual values of our Christian faith be so instilled in the minds of our youth that they be a light and a guide in the uncharted path of the future. Especially is this true and important in a community such as ours that has such a rich Christian heritage to draw from. To all of those that are growing up: be grounded in faith; establish goals and aims early in life guided by Christian principles; be conscious of your spiritual heritage, and no matter how hopeless the outlook you will have an anchor in life and can say with the Psalmist: Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Goethe told the youth of his day: Was du ererbt von deinen Vatern hast, erwirb es um es zu besitzen, and this holds as true today as then. The things we hold precious and cherish must be ever achieved anew. That is the task of those of you going out into the world today. 0. W. FRIESEN t SONS LTD.

Mass media, such as the radio and news¬ papers, enable those in control of these instruments to easily indoctrinate many of us—if we fail to critically examine what we hear and read— with ideas contrary to our principles of free enterprise and Christianity. In a world full of distorted ideas and confused thinking there are still a few influential publications that are doing a highly praiseworthy job of disseminating reliable information and clear thought.
