• : V T; Ifoiem cutd {fold . i || • i A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE Altona Collegiate altona collegiate Students come and go; so do teachers, prin¬ cipals, and board members; inspectors change; even the buildings, in which the generations of students experience secondary education, do not remain the same. Our last year’s senior was the silver anniversary class; next year’s, the twenty- seventh, will spend the major portion of their term in a new division collegiate second to very few in the province. The first sixteen senior classes studied in the “east unit” — 109 students fill those rolls. Then in the fall of 1955 came the move to the “west unit” — Altona Collegiate it was called — and in the ten years we have been in this building, there have been another 223 seniors on the rolls. Since Grade XII was first taught in Altona, there have thus been 332 seniors in our school. Now seems a good time for a little reminis¬ cing — now, when changes are in the wind: a large, new school building; revamped matricula¬ tion courses; new courses; an enrolment boom to over 400; a larger staff. Approximately thirty teachers have worked in 2 this school: H. H. Goertzen (7 years); A. G. Braun and J. I. Warkentin (6); A. C. Kroeker (5); A. P. Hildebrand and A. Heide (4); H. Pauls, A. Schmidt, J. Friesen, and D. R. Dyck (3); H. Dick, L. Siemens, and D. J. Penner (2); C. P. Zacharias, E. Enns, J. Penner, P. Hildebrand, L. Giesbrecht, B. Smith, R. Loewen, and H. T. Thiessen (1); R. J. W. Lyons, Pat Mueller, D. Epp, D. Winter, J. Neufeld, C. Sigurdson, J. Krieger, H. Engbrecht, and O. Graham (partial terms). There have been three principals: A. C. Kroek¬ er (1956-1960), A. Heide (1961), and A. P. Hildebrand (1962-1965). Two inspectors have served: J. W. Butcher (1956-1959) and J. C. Callendar (1960-1965). The students who have achieved the highest standings during the past nine years (this year’s race is still wide open) are: 1956 — Irmgard Wieler, average of 86; 1957 — Evelyn Sawatzky, average of 67; 1958 — Sara Bergen, average of 75; 1959 — Dora Toews, average of 80; 1960 — Brian Topnik, average of 79; 1961 — Ken Schmidt, average of 67; 1962 — Dolores Braun, average of 69; 1963 — Gloria Friesen, average of 71; 1964 — Gerald Gerbrandt, average of 76. The presidents of the student councils of the past ten years have been: Audrey Friesen (1956), Donald Braun (1957), Jim Pearson (1958), David Hoeppner (1959), Robert Wieler (I960), Vernon Hoeppner (1961), Rita Kehler (1962), Raymond Hoeppner (1963), Eric Friesen (1964), and Dorothy Howe (1965). Among the graduates of these ten years can be found medical personnel, teachers (at all levels of the educational system), farmers, phar¬ macy and hospital personnel, businessmen, mu¬ sicians, radio people, social workers, and students in institutions of higher learning. Most of them are adding glory to the name of their co llegiate alma mater. Memories include winning teams of Aces and Acettes; exciting intramural competitions of all kinds; rewarding carol services and Festival par¬ ticipation; publications of books, of poems, of short stories; classroom sessions when learning visibly occurred; academic records set that any school could be proud of. A school is many things. Those of us who have been a part of the Altona Collegiate’s period in this — the “west unit” — are proud of its record, sorry for its shortcomings, and optimistic about the future of our school when it moves into the new division collegiate next fall. £cUt n ' i Ttte teiye This year is almost over, and it has been a great success thus far. It has been a year of constant activity. When June examinations are over, and all the students have left for their sum ¬ mer holidays, there will be nothing left of the enthusiasm and school spirit that generally pre¬ vailed this year. All that will be left will be some warm memories of a year well spent. It is my sincere hope that this yearbook will help make the memories more vivid. A lot of work has been done to make it a true view of school life. A number of contributions were made by students not on the yearbook committee. Be¬ cause of general interest on the part of the student body, this publication is not the work of just a few people, but the product of many people’s labours. I would like to thank everyone who partici¬ pated in the production of this yearbook. I hope they enjoyed the work and derived as much benefit from it as I did. I feel that it has been a rare privilege to serve my school in this way. If you enjoy reading this book, the work will have been worth it. 4 ' PieAideat ' ‘TJtcte.aye The 1964-65 school year has been a very active one for everybody at the Altona Collegiate. It has been a year of changes in every phase of school life. The most notable change is, of course, the switch from the old examination system to the new monthly testing program. However, this originated with the school board and staff. We students have been busy too. Student government has been revised to accommodate the further influx of students next year. Under the old system the council had become too large and consequently very unwieldy. Every council member has a definite activity in the school for which he is responsible. Thus we have spread the duties over the entire coun¬ cil, making the grade nine representatives just as responsible and important as the seniors. Prior to this term, it had been the tendency to leave all activities up to the senior members. All the members have proved themselves capable of car¬ rying out their assigned duties. Thus, it has been a year of accomplishment. A letter system has been instituted and a point system drawn up. We have started a school paper, The Collegian under the editorship of Grant Thiessen. Our constitution is in the pro¬ cess of revision. We ran our drama, our maga¬ zine drive, and our yearbook publication sales concurrently, and ended up with three successful projects. Besides all projects, we were responsible for all social events, sports events, and the library. Now we present our 1964-65 -yearbook of which we are very proud. It has kept the year¬ book and finance committees busy for months. I feel it is the climax of a year which has proved that spirit still exists in our school. Next year, when we enter our new school and welcome new students from all points of this district, we will be ready with a full slate of activities. We admit that everything hasn’t been perfect, but we can learn from our mistakes. As for myself, it has been an honour to work for the school this year. Thus it is that I look forward to next year and new projects which we, the students, can claim as our own. rfdmictt foatioji Rhineland Division Board (fyatMute ' d 7%eddape It gives me pleasure to extend sincerest congratulations on behalf of the Rhineland Division Board. This is, in all probability, the last year that we shall see this publication in its present form, but we would certainly hope that we can look forward to the time when the whole division student body will be included. The next few years will see developed a new conception of high school education in this area. Not only will there be a much larger body of students under one roof, but the material for study will change quite drastically. There will be a tremendous challenge to be faced. We sincerely hope that ou-r planning of the new school will have been advanced enough to cope with the changes that are coming. We hope to offer, in the next few years, a sufficient variety of courses to prepare all of you and those that will follow for the changing world. But this new school and its success will depend largely on you, the students. Through your successes will the faith of your parents, the staff, the Board, and the community be vindicated. We sincerely believe that we are providing the tools; to finish the job will be your responsibility. ART BRAUN, Chairman, Rhineland Division Board. htdfcect n d Tfoddape I am very pleased to again have the privilege of bringing to you, through he pages of your Yearbook, greetings on behalf of the Department of Educa- t S f d a so lke t0 , dd m y own ver y best Wishes to the students and staff for future success and happiness. I am sure that you will long remember this past year — for many of you, your first year in a large Collegiate. In spite of crowding, extra class¬ rooms, and the rabbit-run , I trust that it will prove to be a very successful and happy one. To the Graduating Class, my congratulations and sincere wishes for continued success m the future. Sincerely, JOHN C. CALLANDER, Inspector of Schools. 1 A. P. HILDEBRAND, B.A., B.Ed. (U. of M.) PHYSICS XII PHYSICS XI In our ever changing society, school is becoming increasingly important. Increas¬ ingly obvious also is the fact that mere compilation and recall of facts is not ed¬ ucation; that facts and ideas must be harnessed and put to practice before the individual or his fellow men benefit. As factual information increases, as more and more ideas are published, and as an ever greater contact is made with other peoples of the world through travel, it becomes evident that an individual has to direct his course in life with greater discrimination. Concurrently he has to learn to adapt to changing environment and circumstances; to be pliable; to view new ideas, new concepts and new approaches with an open mind, questioning everything — accepting the good and rejecting the frivolous, foolish and evil. " Ptutciftalb Into this complex world we are sending the youth of today — not as we did a decade ago, to assume the leading role in local affairs due to a better education, but in ever increasing numbers to higher institutions of learning where they will specialize in their particular field of interest, or to other institutions of advanced training and specialization. It will be up to our youth to achieve competence and show initiative in the many problems that remain to be solved and in the many problems of which we are not yet aware. We are placing our trust in the youth of today, that they will prepare properly for their tasks of tomorrow. At the same time, we are attempting to show them truths that we have accepted through experience — truths that we have found sufficient in our hours of need and discouragement — and hope that they will help to light their paths. Comforting is the thought that in this changing world we may travel unafraid if we but follow the example of the wise man who built his house upon a rock. It is the aim of every institution of learning to assist the individual to mold his mind so that he may be wise. This is our aim also. If we fail in this respect, we have failed in all others. May this wisdom aid in alleviating suffering, greed and hate; may it help in welding the brotherhood of man. I am looking forward with anticipation to the role that our students will play in this great drama of life. Judging from the vigor with which some of them attack problems, I expect that some of them will play prominent roles. To all, I extend best wishes for a successful year as well as a successful future. 9 acuity DRAMA XII POETRY XII COMP.

Seminar Report The twelfth annual United Nations Seminar was held at the Manitoba Teachers College Campus from August 9th to 14th. I felt honored to be one of the one hundred and five young people who attended this seminar. The speakers treated various subjects. Mrs. Marg¬ aret Konantz, M.P. for Winnipeg, shared with us her opinion of the United Nations. Dr. Cortney of Bran¬ don College gave a realistic, yet very informative re¬ port on the history, the shortcomings, the successes and failures of the U.N. “UNICEF” was Mrs. Temple’s subject. She made us aware of UNICEF’s great work and reminded us that helping children was not a charity but an investment. Dr. Morley R. Elliott, an authority on World Health Organization, stated that the object of WHO was to bring man to a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. The United Nations’ role in international affairs was a subject discussed by Mrs. G. S. Murray. Mr. Micheal Clague led a very involved discussion on how to start the United Nations within each individual by the way he lives. Approximately one half of the sessions were dis¬ cussion periods. All the young people were divided into ten groups. The questions raised and discussed during these periods were varied and some were quite unrelated to the U.N. Among the topics were: birth control — right or wrong; does it pay to have the U.N.; is there a chance for an international federa¬ tion; and does the Indian of Canada have as many rights as the Canadian. A number of films treated still different aspects of the United Nations. “Workshop for Peace” took us through the U.N. buildings in New York. Two other films were entitled “Water” and “A Grain of Sand”. The entertainment was well planned. On Sunday night we had a get-acquainted social. The object of this informal gathering was to talk to a minimum of twenty kids. A dance was the highlight for Tuesday night. At 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, two chartered buses took us to Rainbow Stage to see Gypsy. Thursday was our stunt night. Each group prepared a skit and presented it that evening. Dormitory life provided quite a bit of color for the Seminar. Some of the incidents I remember: a climb of seventy-two stairs every time I went up to my room; Chicken Delight at 2:30 a.m.; the typical English humor of Professor Tweedie, the director; the catching of a mouse in the lounge; the lively conversations over pop in the canteen. I found the U.N. Seminar very worthwhile. We learned not only how the “big” United Nations in New York functions, but also how the “little” United Nations in Winnipeg evolved. I want to thank the Altona Collegiate Student Union and the Altona Chamber of Commerce for making my experience pos¬ sible. — BETTY KEHLER 12 £35t£5 rf-A U-fV. 5 K= lYve A US- „ tue sv w» os ue ' ° ,, N s Y.‘ aT oU« a “ vtvC e w 0 n we SU n ' t, ot tt e " „ eS? et V?S5 ' S ' , JUU ' AC(I ( d " tW cttv 14 17 THE RIVER WHAT IS OURS Ours: The miles and miles of slope and sage and Rolling ridge; The great canyons and giant cliffs and Isolated, noble monuments; The lacy lakes and glistening waterfalls And dark rivers with mistic thunder of waters. Ours always: The seasons, the shrill icy blasts The intense cold, the steely skies and Crisping snow; The thawing mud and the bleached grass Swept by spring storms; The pleasant skies and balmy summer breezes Playing in the verdant growth; The glorious golden autumn When it’s always afternoon and time stands still. Ours: The time to repose and contemplate Nature’s continuous harmony; The purer thought and keener mind Evoked by nature’s pure aesthetic inspira¬ tion; The time to think and act before Our thinking puts an end to doing; The responsibility, yea, the duty to keep the earth And it’s sweet affluence; A world of mounting momentum and increasing speed And accuracy. But... Let our inner thoughts, our purer thoughts, Slow down and find a way to conserve the natural earth. — Norman Schmidt A river left the mountains And grew as it sucked dry the easy flow of plains. It raced along its rut taking slow bites From imprisoning banks of dirt. With courseless energy and uncertain fury It swung frothy aims in defiance, Struck with sudden savagery: Caught an unwary tree, Pulled down a bridge, Engulfed a highway, Smothered a nearby huddling field. Then strong-backed cliffs stepped out And with unfaltering conscience Cramped in the stream Until its surly waters Sank beneath the dark-waved sea. — Jim Edwards DISASTER AT SEA The foghorn sounds its lonely wail. The moon retreats from sight; Slowly the wispy ghost-like veil Spreads thickly through the night. From out at sea the fishing fleet Returns to end the day, And sailors rubbing tired feet Await their hard-earned pay. But now the urgent call is raised, One ship is still at sea; The sailors only listen, dazed By the sound of the lashing sea. The captain and his crew set sail To help their comrades in their plight; Suddenly, they hear a dying wail, As the doomed ship slowly sinks from sight. The foghorn sounds its lonely wail. The moon retreats from sight; Slowly the wispy ghost-like veil Spreads thickly through the night. •— Carol Schroeder 22 BEYOND THIS HORIZON Beyond this horizon The immortal storm rages, Bringing childhood’s end To a young, tired people. The tomorrow people, Emerging from the caves of steel Into the naked sun, Pilgrims through the door Into summer. Dwellers in the mirage Of forgotten time, We stand alone Among the green hills of earth, The sands of eternal time Drifting through our clutching fingers. Here gather the stars. The far reaches of man Are as futile as the grasping Of an ant, attempting to move A mountain. Unless — Unless man emerges From the morning of existence Into the afternoon of intelligence — A golden sun Rising on the glory that could be. — James Grant Thiessen HE CANNOT FORGET The rain beat hard on the roof of the world, A dull, dark silence was there; Catching the rhythm, he turned around And glazed his eyes in a stare. A vision he saw — a wonderful dream, Charlotte was there by his side; But she seemed so distant — so far away Like the ebb of an outgoing tide. Then Fate stepped in and dealt him a blow — What was this? Only a dream? His joy had changed with the blink of an eye Into pain and a smothered scream. But the silence came back, and with it the rain, The pattering people of thought; It was only a dream — a wonderful dream, But why must it be of Charlotte? — Luther Pokrant THE DRIVER The Jaguar lies inert in the garage, Her potent, sinuous length Suspended — on four squat tires, The rubber smelling of open air and concrete horizons. A young man walks briskly into the garage, His smooth, clean-shaven face puckered into a tuneless whistle. Office-keys and car-keys swing in noisy unison Around a blocky, determined index-finger. With youthful dexterity He enters the machine And maneuvers it into the street: A strong right hand Clutches the gearshift knob And snaps the transmission into low gear: Left foot and right foot De-clutch and accelerate In smoothly synchronized motion: The Jaguar leaps ahead, Rear tires screeching in masochistic delight, Dual exhausts spewing out a deep-throated roar That peaks and falls thrice Before car and driver blur into the horizon. He parks his car at the office, And gets out. The engine makes odd little noises as it cools. The car is one ride older — Metal fatigue has set in; The tires have lost some tread; There is a new scratch in the body paint... Meanwhile, the young man strides into his office Refreshed by the early morning ride. Warm blood pulses through his hands and feet — He is ready to drive the world. — Robert Buhr 23 SCHOOL PAPER A SUCCESS The 1964-65 school year saw some changes being made in school publi¬ cations. The Altona Collegian, formerly a publication which appeared three times yearly, was launched as a monthly project. This made it possible to keep the larger student body informed on matters of general concern. The Mr. A. Schmidt, Carol Loewen, Margaret Loewen. older system was devoted largely to creative writing. The first edition of The Collegian rolled off the presses on October 5, 1965 on an experimental basis. Gen¬ eral interest led to the appointment of Grant Thiessen as editor. Thereafter, at fairly regular inter¬ vals, not always monthly, The Col¬ legian made its appearance. Publications Committee Appointed The Student Council this year ap¬ pointed a committee and charged it with the chore of supervising all pub¬ lications by the ACSA. The editor and staff of all publi¬ cations were responsible to this group. This included both the Year¬ book Committee and the staff in charge of The Collegian. Thiessen Appointed Editor With the appointment of Grant Thiessen, a senior student, The Col¬ legian began to be printed fairly regu¬ larly. Thiessen readily admits that his task was often a “lonely” one. All too often he was his own reporter, editor and typist. Despite the many unexpected diffi¬ culties that arose, Thiessen managed to get his paper out. He also man¬ aged to get considerable reaction from some quarters to his scathing editor¬ ials. Congratulations for a job well done. 24 YEARBOOK COMMITTEE YEARBOOK STAFF Editor in Chief ... Assistant Editor ... Art ..... Publicity and Advertising . Typing and Paste-ups .

Our Manitoba staff member, Mr. Blake Herman spoke to us about the function of the I.S.C.F. groups. An I.S.C.F. club was first begun in the Altona Collegiate in 1952. Its motto has always been, " To know Christ and to make Him known”. Our pro¬ grams are planned with this in mind. Our calendar has included Bible study, talks, work-bee, socials and films. We have covered the following themes: What does it mean to be a Christian? Hymn Study, Mis¬ sionary Reports, New Testament Men. Other activities have included a work-bee at Mr. O. Wiebe’s, and a tobogganning party at Miami. On March 16 we had a gym party after which we cleaned up five gallons of ice-cream. Two films shown by the I.S.C.F. were “Goal to Go,” and “Wilderness Treasure”. The executive managed the canteen for one day at the teachers’ Bonspiel. Some of the speakers we have had are: Mr. P. Hildebrand, a teacher on our staff; Mr. J. Reimer, a former student of our Collegiate; Mr. Floyd Dalzell, an evangelist; Reverend G. Lee, a missionary to British Honduras. Another section of our club is the prayer meeting. Not many individuals attend, but the ones who do are sincere. Following the example of recent clubs in this school we plan to canvass for the Salvation Army. Our I.S.C.F. helps support one missionary, Samuel Escabar. We have bought a year’s subscription to His magazine for the school library. Some other highlights of the I.S.C.F. are the Spring Conference in May and the Teen Camp in August. Our desire is to make a positive contribution to our school and that through our club, students may find opportunity to express the Christian faith. 26 A V Sk Bi 1 i V " " 5 Nickel 1 EQUALS by Robert Friesen jbeorge loved the soft waning light of the autumn evenings and the gentle flickering leaves which changed colors as they floated through the breeze. IM air had a pleasant aroma of rain that had just passed over. He looked up and toward the clouded sky, which permitted hardly any sunlight to pass through. iOmy a few scattered sunbeams made their way down [to earth through openings in the clouds. These won¬ derful sights no one could take away from him. Nature had always been a part of him, ever since he bal been born. All this was a part of him. On hot and humid summer nights, when it was impossible to sle jp, George would lie awake and hear nature’s sounds all jaround him. Whenever he heard the lark’s warb¬ ling in the meadow, he immediately • thought of his wonderful childhood. He remembered all the wonder- Fulljoys of the ignorant bliss of his childhood. He wished he could feel that way today. He didn’t really like being an Indian, at least not the kind of Indian the white man thought him to be. He : wanted to be treated on equal terms with those he was forced to work with. He looked at the dirty jar containing the blue milk. Once again anger rushed into his head. He asked for good fresh milk, but all he Sever got was this blue skimmed milk. He was no ion or pig to drink it. He wanted rich, sweet milk, like the others got, in a clean jar that shone bright in the sunlight. He hadn’t always been treated like a dog. He re¬ membered when he was young, when he had fought in the war. Everyone was his equal then. He was iccepted by everyone, everywhere he went. George ;ven intended to marry, but his future wife left him a week before they were to be married. He had made uch plans, had such dreams. But these dreams soon vanished when he went out in the white man’s world. The next morning he looked for a better job at a aear-by farm. He felt no sensations with the prospects cf the new job. He thought here he would be treated like at all the other places. A woman came out of the ' arm house to meet him. | Yes, my husband needs a man to work for him.” looked around and nodded, “You can put your :e« over there beside the barn.” Later he set up his tent and began preparing his supper. A young boy came toward him, stopped in ront of him and looked at George with a serious and pqftled look on his face. sTAre you really an Indian?” fceorge felt a tense feeling run through himself, but continued calmly to prepare his meal. “Yes, I am.” ■You don’t look like it,” replied the boy with a smile on his face. “Have you got feathers?” George looked up. “Like they have on television.” George shook his head. He .was becoming very an¬ noyed by the boy’s questions. “Do you paint your face the way they do on television?” George shook his head again and kept on pre¬ paring his meal. “My mother says Indians aren’t as bad as they used to be.” George could hardly hold back his anger. He clutched his large stirring spoon and pretended not to hear. “They don’t scalp people any more, you know,” the young boy assured George. George felt sick and closed his eyes for a minute. His palms became sweaty with the tension inside him. “Do you want to come and watch television?” George opened his eyes and looked at the boy be¬ fore him. The boy was innocent the way he once was. He envied the youth and the life that lay ahead of him. His life would be a lot easier for him. Merely being white assured him of this. George remembered all the young boys he had seen in the front lines in the war. He remembered their agonies and deaths as if it had been yesterday. He kept on looking at the young boy and wondered if there would be a war in his life. He would never know. He had no right to know. The boy was still waiting for an answer and George nodded, “Perhaps later on.” The boy left and George started to eat, but his appetite had vanished. He only took a mouthful of potatoes and went into his tent and lay down on the low cot. In the days that followed, George worked hard for the farmer. He liked the farmer, but he wasn’t sure if the farmer thought of him as just another Indian whom he could feed his skimmed milk. George and the boy became good friends. Whenever he had free time, George and the boy went on hikes, fished, or just talked together. The whole family was friendly to¬ wards him. George woke early the next morning. He stood up in his tent, paused to stretch, and went to get his breakfast which the farmer’s wife left for him outside his tent. George had asked her to leave some milk for him. She had. Soon he would know if he had found people who really accepted him. He picked up the jar of milk and held it up to the sunlight. The white milk glowed radiantly as the sunlight struck. He had finally found a man who considered him as truly a fellow man. Suddenly the future seemed to brighten up. Rita Loewen, Mr. Giesbrecht, Gordon Friesen, Ken Thiesen. CONSTITUTION COMMITTEE Because the old constitution was outdated and or¬ ganizational reforms had already been made, the Council found it necessary to revise the constitution. The committee members, Rita Loewen, Gordon Frie¬ sen, Ken Thiesen, and Mr. Giesbrecht, the faculty sponsor, optimistically embarked on this chore, which would surely rob only a few moments from their busy schedules. Little did they realize the magnitude of the task. The old constitution was carefully studied and countless minor changes were made. Only a few major revisions were effected, however. The ineffi¬ cient system of autumn elections was changed to a system where nominations would be made in June and elections held before the close of the first full week of school in fall. The duties of the treasurer were trans¬ ferred from the secretary to the vice-president. The new system of government adopted by the school this year was incorporated. The Council met on January 6, 1965, and after much discussion and a few minor changes was passed on to January 13th. “Well,” the committee members thought, “our work is finished now. The coming Jan- 5 uary 22nd plebescite is merely a formality.” How misguided these minds were! The constitu¬ tion was voted down. It was felt, however, that the j students didn’t thoroughly understand the constitution. | Every class was now visited and the constitution was a read and discussed. Objections and recommendations | were received from the students and the draft went ; back to the committee and was again slightly revised. ) The constitution is currently in committee, being j prepared for the second presentation to the students, We feel sure this time it will be ratified. As sophomore president, I would like to pass along j our sympathies to the freshmen. We occupied the huts] last year and know that it is not too pleasant being ) cut off from the main student body. However, better things are on the way. Take heart! I would like also, to mention that a good part of 1 the work done by the social convener was ably per¬ formed by Clifford Falk who occupied my position of,! president until January. 34 GREEN AND GOLD!

After trouncing of Carman, (41-22), a team which had beaten Altona in the first league game, the Aces met the Morden Mohawks in the cham¬ pionship play-off. Here again the green and gold squad demonstrated unexpected superiority, winning by a score of 50-36. 1964-65 was a season for “rebuilding” where the Aces were concerned. Because of an over-abundance of senior talent in re¬ cent years, few juniors and sophomores had had the opportunity of breaking into the line-up. With this talent gone a new team had to be built from the ground up. Only one pillar of strength remained, and that was John Dick, alias “Big Red”. John’s performance was outstanding in all games in which he participated. Other stars, however, have appeared on the horizon. Vic Friesen, Ray Klassen, and Harv Toews should form a solid nucleus next year. Chafing at the bit of course, are present Freshmen like Rick Janzen and Jim Wolfe. A new season should see the Aces well up in the Southern Manitoba Basketball Conference standings once again. 36 1 JM 1 ■ Personal Statisti Harvey Toews ... Ray Klassen . John Zacharias Rudi Epp .

Under Coach Warkentin’s di¬ rection the Acettes were moulded into a winning team. A first game loss failed to upset the Acettes. Hard work pushed the Acettes on to the semi-finals with only a record of 7 wins and 3 losses. Naturally, elimination by a three point loss to Lowe Farm on a two-game total point series was very dis¬ appointing. Apart from this the season was satisfactory. Because the annual league tournament had been dropped, future tournaments would be invitational. Here the Acettes met with some success emerging as conso¬ lation winners at the Steinbach tournament. They lost to Winkler in the first round and defeated Steinbach in the consolation event. The profit from a Bake Sale at the Braun Drug Store, plus a grant from the council and a loan from Mr. Warkentin, which was paid back by another Bake Sale, provided the team with new uniforms. Sweaters were also purchased by all the Acettes and a few cheerleaders. Unfortunately, the team will suffer a set back with the loss of Margaret Loewen, Betty Friesen, and Jayne Friesen in 1965-66. However, many of the younger players are anxiously waiting for the chance to prove their ability. We’re looking forward to a bright future. 39 Reimer (G) GIRLS ' BASKETBALL Personal Statistics olene Toews I a rg a ret Loe’ etty Friesen ayne Friesen orothy Howe elen Guenthe 42 Inter-Collegiate Tear Back row: Viola Braun, Jolene Toews, Marlene Buhr, Betty Kehler, Grace Kehler, Helen Hildebrandt.

The efforts of the football squad this past year seemed rather dismal when compared to the success of the local football squad last year. Our team failed to register a win in the four games that were played. They seemed to run into gigantic opposition wherever they played. They always put up an honest effort, but somehow this did not seem to be enough. They were outplayed and outweighed in every game. To offer an excuse, one could say that the opposition was Herculean when compared to our squad. In the first home game, the football Aces played their best game of the season, losing by a score of 12-6 to Morden. The only touchdown for Altona was scored by Bill Loewen. Although the Altona squad put up a staunch fight, they were defeated when Morden scored a disputed touchdown in the latter stages of the game. Two other games were played away from home. These took place in Plum Coulee and Winkler. In both games the Aces were soundly defeated. The last game of the season was an experiment in 8-man football. The local team’s efforts again were not enough as they went down to their fourth defeat.

As a Class President I am unique in that I am the only Class President to take office at mid-term. This was necessitated when our original president, Clifford Falk, left us. I would like to congratulate Clifford for the capable job he did during his 4% months in office. We, the Sophomore Class, would like to join the Juniors in congratulating the graduating class. Also, we extend sympathies to the Freshmen. We too spent a year of virtual “exile.” But take heart! You have three wonderful years ahead of you in the new collegiate. Sawatzky Janet Thi j ft ... . Sv Bonnita Buhr Life’s Darkest Moment It was late Friday night as he slowly got up and closed the front door on his cottage. A full moon shone brightly on the glassy surface of the tranquil lake. He was tired, very tired. Yes, one of the world’s renowned scientists, and yet, very tired — and sick. What he had just discovered filled him with fear. He paced up and down on the bear rug in front of the dead hearth. He stopped, paused, and looked out of the window on the north-east side of the house. Time seemed limitless and unimportant now that he could see into infinity. Why, oh why, had it been he? He just didn’t know. Slowly and methodically he struck a match and lit his pipe. The muscles twitched around his mouth as he drew deeply. Outside a loon’s cry shattered the expectantly hushed world. The chinook wind rustled the dark pines silhouetted against the dark sky, while a fish glistened in the playful moonlight as it leaped, and splashed as it descended into the water. Except for the loon, the birds seemed struck dumb. All this was unseen as the man’s eyes coldly passed over the land¬ scape. Dejectedly he slouched, with legs lightly crossed, in the deep, old-fashioned, moss-green chair. He started, and realized how chilly the room was. He lit a fire in the hearth, buttoned up his maroon cardigan, and sat down. But the fire went out. He didn’t bother re¬ lighting it. Why should he bother? He didn’t need a fire, did he? Again the loon’s cry haunted the room of the small cottage. He crossed the hardwood floor, hesitated, and opened the door leading on to the porch. Out on the verandah he seemed to hold the world in the palm of his hand. “What an ironic feeling, buddy,” he thought, and grinned cynically. Tonight he had discovered important facts in his laboratory about man’s dilemma-filled world. Why had it been he to discover these things? Why couldn’t it have been someone else? It could have been some¬ one who was logical and had more human reasoning than he had. Now he saw his responsibility to man¬ kind, and he always shirked responsibility! He couldn’t prove to them that it was true, he argued with himself. But it was true! He went down to the side of the lake, picked up a smooth, flat stone, and threw it out over the water. It splashed and the ripples rippled to his feet. What an easy way to change places! And, yet, so difficult! He’d have to! Tomorrow he’d go to them, and prove to them that it was true. He’d show them! He seemed to be able to visualize his purpose in life for the first time.. .he saw a falling star glide into the horizon. “I can’t break man’s ideals,” he thought as he savagely broke a stick, and threw it away. — “I won’t!” He would try facing reality later, for every¬ one else seemed so far away. Surely he wasn’t going stark mad, he asked himself. Life had never been darker as he stood there, absolutely motionless.. . That night he walked the sandy beaches of the shimmering lake. Thoughts, which he forced back with difficulty, seethed in his mind. He just didn’t know what to do. He went back in, and his eyes seemed to gleam vindictively in his tired face as the firelight danced on the walls. He drained his glass and grasped the corner of the fireplace till his knuckles were white. Quietly he groaned. Again the question, “Why?” It stood stark and cold in his wearied mind, and rebounded off the walls... Maybe he’d go and try to prove to them next week that it was true, but not tomorrow. There was a lot of time. Maybe, — even next week. Maybe — never? — VIOLA BRAUN, XB 53 rlad tldl s : son intermin :arols of the season eXt Vwe the Alton Colieg ss« r " " gsB alumni, and. friends.

One may pace the well-lit, spacious corridors of the main building and find no trace of the freshmen. However, upon exploration one may come upon a seemingly abandoned part of the school which leads to a dimly-lit, narrow, crude “corridor” with earth for a floor and frost for paint. Follow¬ ing this “corridor” one comes upon the three huts in which are found the grade niners. We certainly hope for an improvement next year, but I can assure you that the present freshmen will do a lot of hard work in spite of the added luxuries. 60 61 62 ' ' ' Ill W ,.wl r cu r % LIBRARY COMMITTEE LITERARY COMMITTEE 64 By James Hilton A Dramatization in Three Acts by Anne Martens and Christopher Sergei DIRECTED BY MR.

Missing from picture Eric Friesen. VALEDICTORY Tonight is a highpoint in our lives. It can only come once at this level. Tonight represents at least twelve years of work and study, and the diplomas we get will always be treasured. We are also very happy tonight in that we represent the Altona Collegiate as the twenty-fifth graduating class. Our lives, particularly our academic lives, can be compared to a range of mountains. When we started school at the age of five or six, the grades stretched before us, high and forbidding, like a mountain range. We started climbing though, slowly but surely. We didn’t climb those formidable mountains by ourselves. We were all helped every inch of the way. We could never have made it by ourselves. Possibly the first people we think of in this regard are our teachers. Without them, we just wouldn’t be here tonight. They have been trained and have given of their lives to help us. They have worked just as hard as we, trying to help us understand our work so we could keep going. All too frequently we tend to forget how much the teachers really helped us during our school years. Other groups which have helped us, although in¬ directly, are the school boards. They ran the schools successfully and always made sure we had enough equipment and supplies in order to work satisfactorily. They, too, deserve a lot of credit for helping us climb those mountains, year after year. Those, though, who have never changed, and yet helped us considerably, are our parents. They helped us in studies when we just couldn’t understand the work. They reminded us of our homework when we forgot. They were always climbing with us, helping sometimes, and tactfully letting us do it ourselves at other times. They worried and hoped with us during exams and school activities in which we were a part. If we did poorly, they tried to reassure us and to help us do better later on. If we did well, their joy was as boundless as ours. They had a long, hard job, helping us climb those mountains. To all those people who have helped us through these years, a mere ‘thank-you’ is not sufficient. We hope they will all realize that in our hearts we are extremely grateful. Now that we have finished climbing this particular mountain range, we look back and see, far in the back¬ ground, a dim, little mountain, which at first was the big formidable mountain of Grade one. At that time we expected to see the world at our feet when we reached Grade twelve. Whatever we wanted would be handed to us on a silver platter. If this was our expectation, we have been greatly surprised. All we see now are more mountains, everyone leading a different way, to a different field of work. Each of us has had to choose our life’s work and again begin to climb mountains. After every moun¬ tain comes another and yet another. Years from now, after we have climbed more mountains, we will look ahead and see still more mountains. With the grace of God, which has been with us all these years, we will climb those mountains too. Some day we will look behind us and see, far in the background, a dimly lit, little mountain, Grade twelve, the mountain upon which we now stand. 70 Viola Braun, an Altona area winner, was awarded the Pembina Printers Ltd. Trophy for playing Prelude and Fugue in C Minor by Bach. The Rhineland Agricultural Society Trophy was the second trophy won by Viola Braun of Altona. For this particular trophy she played Rondo No. 1 in C by Bartok. Photos by Jim Reimer Rudi Reimer is shown receiving the Dr. William Loewen trophy from chairman John F.
