We want to show them in just a little way how much we appreciate them, so will you write us a dedication that will tell them that?" Well, I sez to myself, I sez, "Rondo, I figure that them parents have raised them buckeroos right nice so tha oney thing that would be proper to say would have to be one of them things written by a poeteer. Since you caint write no such thing, Rondo, I figure that you'l1 have to tell em in a diffrunt way. I sure wisht ya could've gone ta school and had one of them parents to raise ya cuz it sure ain't no fun ta go through life unedurcated." Well sir the oney thing I could think of to write was this: "THE SENIORS OF THIS HERE SCHOOL WANT TO DEDICATE THIS ANNUAL TO YOU PARENTS BECAUSE YA HAVE ROUNDED EM UP SO NICE. I CAINT THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY EXCEPT I'LL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT'I..L HAPPEN TA YA IF'N YA DON'T ACCEPT THIS HERE DEDICATION."

Wltnessed by: ' Signed by: 1 f a' CRONDOI ISENIOB OF1954l FUTURSCOPIC TELEVISION PREDICTS SENIORS' FUTURES It was a foggy night after the senior class play, and I couldn't even see the red paint on my truck as I turned the corner to go home. Then it happened! Everything went wrong- the steering wheel twisted out of my hand, the accelerator went down and down, and the speedometer went up and up. When the truck pulled to a stop outside a farm house, I staggered out and ran to the house. No one answered when I knocked, so I walked in the open door. In the living room, I saw an odd-looking television set and when I walked over to it, I found it was a new brand named Futurscopic TV. One of the buttons I punched said, "Ten Years", and another said, "Class of '54". The picture came in clear, but when l saw it focus on a superintendent's office, I was ready to jump out of my chair to change the controls. Before I could move, I recognized the superintendent as Vollie Sanders. He looked at least ten years older than he had when I had seen him just that evening. He no longer had his butch haircut. II guessed that he wanted to look more executive.l As my eye traveled to the other side of the screen, I realized that his secre- tary was none other than Deanna Smith. I' ve never seen anyone take dictation--so fast- She must have Iconfinued on page 61, ...24.. U55 jnnsm flfwffyn iS"l'nner"1uining y On the evenings of November 9 and lO, the junior class presented "The inner Willy." Danny Brady, pictured at the bottom of the page, portrayed Inner Willy hilariously. Phil Crabtree, as Willoughby, was coddled too much by his three old maid aunts: Louise, Hester, and Olga, who were played by Karla Harris, Charlotte Downard, and Nancy Smith respectively. Stanley, played by Gerald Soper, became a bit perturbed when he thought that Willy was trying to steal his girl. Mike, portrayed by Bruce Calbreath, was called on to act as a mediator. The aunts chose a quiet girl named Marybelle, played by June Duckett, as the ideal girl to go with their Willy to the Senior Prom. A set of twins, Trudy and Janet, played by Charlotte Warner and Myrna Detrick, heard that Willy didn't have a girl to go with and volunteered to go with him. When Carol, played by Pat Irish, accepted Willy's invitation to the dance, all problems were solved. irii f,f,..x,if5j!'2gf - ' f . .,.- W' 'f'isQ,,1fi"f, ' f' A 113zf'rZm,q1i,, 1 i, 1 - f,"fi'f1+s-VL:iffy:1 .

This year, Mrs. Nelson and her class took trips to many different farms in the fall to study the animals there. Becoming ready for reading was another of the activities of this class. The first grade under Miss Vandehaar, started reading and arithmetic. The first graders' formal instruction also started this year. Mrs. Ostrem helped her second graders enjoy elementary science fgeneral and socialj. They enjoyed all of their formal instruction. Reading proved to be the main interest for third graders.

Health books and basic seven notebooks were made by the fourth graders under Miss Davis' instruction. The fourth grade started to play flutes in readiness for further musical training. A new study was introduced into the fifth and sixth grade pro- gram which is called social studies. It is a combination of history and geography. Miss Gross, the fifth grade teacher, and Miss Anderson, the sixth grade teacher, combined many of the activities of the two classes this year. Both classes took a field trip to Westminister church in Des Moines, went Christmas caroling, and presented two programs for the Altoona P.T.A. ? Itqwwl LAURA MANNY B. S.

Marching Band opened the l953-54 band season adding color duringhalt-time at our home foot- ball games. Leading the band were the drum majorettes pictured on the top of the next page. They are: fleft to rightj Judy Cox, Charlotte Warner, Sharon Warner, Leona Michael, and Nancy Smith. Due to the illness of Mr. Versteeg just before our Christmas concert, it became necessary for Mr. Kruetz to direct us. We were pleased that he was able to help in directing our band during the time that Mr. Versteeg was unable to be there. Mr. Versteea resigned at the end of the first semester on doctor's orders. Mr. Kever who is a graduate oi East High and Drake University, took over the baton to direct us for the last half of the year. New festival music provided us with a project for the last semester. -44- BOYS' QUARTET SINGS ON RADIO! The boys' quartet received five dollars for placing second in a talent show held in the Altoona High School Gymnasium. They were invited to appear on the Bill Billey show on radio station KBNT. The song they chose to sing forthe radio audience was "You, You, You." This same song won them the second place prize on the talent show. MADRIGAL GROUP SINGS AT FEDERATION! The madrigal group sang at Womens' Federation January 9. The songs they sang were: "Climbing Up the Mountain, Children," "The Lord Bless You and Keep You," and "Lamb ot God." They will also sing on other occasions soon. The madrigal group is one of the newer vocal groups at Altoona, and it has proved to be worthwhile. 1-I+ BOYS' QUARTET: Qleft to rightj Carroll Clark Phil Crabtree, Vollie Sanders, jim Robinson Madrigal Group: FIRST ROW: Sue Decker, Loretta Roe, Nancy Backus, Eva Roe, Ginger Melton, Gaye Blake.

The Student Council is set up to aid the teacher in governing the students of the school. This year the Student Council has been working on several ideas to improve the school. Thanks to the co-operation of the teachers and other people they have started a recreation room in the room where the old shop previously resided. A table tennis table built for the Student Council by Mr. Sells and the shop classes is one of the main features of this room. Nets and paddles were purchased by the school. Mr. Carmody, the faculty advisor, helped very much in keeping the council searching for new ideas to help students and teachers. The president was Vollie Sanders: vice president was Gerald Soperp and the secretary was Russell Speer. - I , ,- ggiillirfd LEFT T0 RIGHT: Phil Crabtree, Gerald Soper, Ray Wolver, Dick Scheel, Vollie Sanders, Russell Speer, Lanny Shultice, Mr. Carmody, jan McClelland. -4Q- 'olume I Ai.-..... ings. semi Pi , H5 ' 7 The journalism class was first oraanized this year with Mrs. Porter as the sponsor.

Attending her were Mary Jane Harding, senior: Nancy Smith, junior: Sue Decker, sophomore: and Betty Harrison, freshman. Although the football boys were unsuccessful in their attempt to furnish us with a homecoming victory, homecoming was very colorful and enjoyed by most. At half time ceremonies, Carla was crowned by the football captain, Dick Scheel, and was given the traditional long-stemmed roses and kiss. The queen rode in a pure white Cadillac con- vertible and the attendants rode in Chevrolets. After the game, ceremonies moved inside the gym. The annual grand march formed, and the attendants were escorted to the stage by Tom Cort, senior: George, Murrow, junior: Raymond Wolver, sophomore: and Richard Den Otter, freshman. Carla was again crowned and took her throne. Homecoming ended with the dance at which Jack Godfroy's orchestra provided music. -X 'X grain-1 . if if . .V .a I5 RAHS FOR THE CHEERLEADERS! l,l'Il"'l' T0 lllG'I'l': Xlurcella '.1eisner, Karla Harris, Carla Tuinstra, Mary Jane Harding, Sondra Ilgun fIl'IN'I'!'I!l: Mary jean Tokheim.

The team lost eight of its first string players through graduation or transfer at the beginning of this year. The prospects for next year's team, however, are promising, in view of the fact that several boys gained much football "know how" this yearf The eight graduating seniors are: Cort, Scheel, Ohland, Clark, Hinrichs, Murrow, Champion, and Sanders. Dick Scheel, senior tackle was elected captain by the team at the beginning of the year. Co-captain was appointed each game by Coach Petersen. .-.53-.

The 1953-54 basketball season was not too successful for the Ramblerettes this year. With the exception of the Story City game, all games were lost. The team showed a lot of spirit and ability but the whole team was lacking experience. Except for a few, the whole team was new this year. However, only two members of the team are graduating this year-- Ruth Scheel and- Shirley Brown, and next year the girls should provide a most successful record. The squad elected Ruth Scheel and Beverly Yount as captains: Charlotte Warner as the most' valuable player and Karen Perry as the most improved player. -55- OPPONENTS Woodside Carlisle Bondurant Colfax Mitchellville Johnston Madrid Ankeny Valley Runnells Farrar Pleasantville Story City Defensive Average 50.6 Offensive Average 49,5 Name of Player Cort Barker Erickson Soper Crabtree Helm Wolver Clark Travis Robinson Murrow Diebel BOYS' BASKETBALL STATISTICS FT Total Goals FT Made FT Missed Percentage EEE 63 54 63 47 180 57 32 51 22 146 46 30 51 53 122 39 23 44 57 101 28 24 50 41 80 19 9 50 16 47 9 7 34 18 25 7 8 32 17 22 8 1 20 4 17 1 1 50 3 3 1 - - - 1 2 1 - - - - 1 2 279 189 188 50.3 230 747 -5 TEAMWORK + ABILITY : GOOD SEASON FIRST ROW: Cleft to right!

They are: Tom Cort, Ralph Helm, Carroll Clark, Tom Hamborg, Vollie Sanders and George Diebel. Ralph Helm and Tom Cort were chosen Co- Captains. Tom Cort was the leading scorer for the season with l8O points and Jim Barker was second with 145. The most valuable player was Tom Cort.

HI-I Q Class Prophecy fcohtinued from page 241 been writing at least 250 words a minute. lust as I was beginning to enjoy myself watching these two classmates, the picture blurred and when it again cleared, I found myself watching a pro basketball game. Tom Cort was being introduced by the sports announcer as the coach of the Salami Stuffers' League Team. He had quite an impressive record for his team--won IO2, lost 2. Then something flashed on the screen and I was about blinded. When I recovered I found that I was looking at the California sun, and who should I see under that sun and a beach umbrella but Ruth Scheel. She was talking to her husband and she was telling him how much she enjoyed her vacation away from teaching fourth grade. This crazy machine must have been tuned in for teachers, because the scene shifted to a large high school in Colorado where I saw Carla Tuinstra watching her typing students take a timed writing. She seemed to be very happy, and I saw that she wasn't watching her students after all--she was admiring a new wedding ring. Then the infernal machine changed again and there was Bonnie Briggs. She was busy trying to get her little kindergarten pupils to come out of their play house. She couldn't get in the tiny door and they wouldn't come out. She finally whispered something to them and they very meekly filed out of the door. I was wondering what she said, but before I found out, the scene changed again. This time there was a motion picture shown of the new ten-lane highway 6 through Iowa. The object of the motion picture was to lead up to the introduction of the engineer of this highway who was hailed as the greatest engineer since Casey Jones. "When what to my wondering eyes should appear" but Carroll Clark. He cut the red tape and a new airplane wrote "HOOHAY" in the air in less time than it would take me to write it. Luckily the TV set showed me more' of this new plane. It was called an XHLIOO. lt was a rocket-powered plane designed by our own John Champion. The screen focused on John as he entered his inner office. His secretary who was Verneil Griffin, told him that he had a private phone call to answer. After he went into his inner inner office to take it, Verneil started telling about the new plane of "Champion Aircraft." Then the picture went back again to the plane and I saw Virginia Ellsworth working on the engine. She was making some fine repairs after the test flight.
