Aunt Angela and Gifford, Aunt Angela's choice for Eve's husband arrive for a visit the same day Garret and Vic do. Vic, in town on important business, tears his trousers. Being a holiday, Garret can't get them mended. Vic dresses as one of the girls to hide his embarrassment. Upon Gorrets' return, he swipes Garrets trousers and goes off to his business ap- pointment. Upon Vic's fathers' arrival, he gets his trous- ers swiped by Garret. The girls return, find Garret md rope him in- to playing the part of Eve's teacher. When Garret's skirt falls down, so does the girl's plot. Aunt Angela, forgives them though, and all ends well. Thanks goes to Mrs. Calbreath and the .lr Class for giving a wonderful play. 0- Spotlight Journalism was offered as a credit course for the first time in 54-55 . The main obiect was the printing of the SPOTLIGHT each month. Twelve students Juniors and Seniors made up the staff. Mrs. Porter the class teacher and sponser had fullrespon- sibility of picking editors who were Melva Stuart and Gaye Blake, and seeing that the work was done by the rest of the class. The pqaer came out the first of each month. li -Ki, E V x H . . -xx if X 'Q 3-X CHEERLEADERS: Left to Right,Betty Tokhiem, Sondra Reutt, Betty Armantrout, Karla Harris, Sandra Van Dyke. -51- omecoming One of the biggest highlights of the yea' was homecoming. lt was an even big- ger event this yea' because the football team beat an all time rival--Ankeny. The field was beautifully decorated with gay pennants and footballs by the Sopho- mores. At halftime the Queen and her at- tendants were presented, all riding in con- vertibles. After the exciting game a dance was held in the gorgous gym decorated by the capable hands of the Juniors, while awaiting the crowning of the Queen. Then the big moment came-the grand mach consisting of all the football players, their favorite girls and the thrilled and smiling king and queen. As the crown was placed on her head she was kissed by the king. After a short speech made by her, dancing again took place. -52.5 Q -Q i f . Fit?

S. E. 30 8. Granger Ph. -3194 Coach Peterson opened his second sea- son at Altoona by switching the single wing and straight T formations to the A and split T formations which proved to be successful throughout the season. ln ending with a 6- 2-l record it can be seen that there was much improvement over last yea-s team which lost all nine ganes. A new trophy was added with Altoona win- ning the conference for the first year. Out- standing was the fact that Altoona placed 8 men on the three conference teams. Louie Simmons, George Murrow, Ray Wolver, Gerald Soper, and Phil Crabtree placed on the first team with Roy Crcbtree on the second and Ted Diehl and Dan Brady on honorable men- tion. Much of the credit for a successful sea- son goes to our tough line. Altoona 26 - Maxwell 0 Showing considerable improvement over last yea' the Ramblers came home with their first victory by piling up 393 ycrds against their opponents. Lee Crabtree scored three times on runs of 35, l9, and 5 yds. and Phil Crabtree scored the other on a 4l ycrd run. Roy Crabtree to Dm Brady and Gerald Soper for two conversions. Altoona 26 - Madrid 0 , With a repeat performance of the Madrid game Altoona won their second straight. Lee Crabtree scored first on a 39 yirder while Jan McLelmd scored twice from the 2 and 8. Rich- ard Den Otter went 26 yards with a fumble for the other score. Passes from Roy Crab- tree to Gerald Soper and Lee Crabtree added two conversions. Altoona 6 - Johnston 6 Playing a good game with tough breaks the Ramblers fought to a tie with Johnston. Ray Wolver grcbbed a fumble and ran 15 for the home teams only T.D. With a goalline stand the Ramblers held Johnston from scor- ing on 4 plays only to fumble the next play and have Johnston recover it over the goal- line. Altoona I3 - Ankeny 12 Altoona proved that Ankeny can be beaten by coming from behind twice while holding their oppenents to a- ll yds. in the second half. Phil Crabtree scored first on a 70 yd. punt return and later on a 55 ycrd run from scrimmage behind beautiful blocking while Louie Simmons kicked the deciding point. Altoona 2 - Dowling 6 Being outmanned the Ramblers held their own against a favored Dowling eleven ltwelve?j Opportunity knocked once for the Rambler eleven but they fumbled on the 4 line. They got their lone two points by tackling Dow- ling's kicker in the end zone. Altoona 28 - Monroe 6 With Monroe scoring first the Ramblers subdued their weak opponent 28-6. Scoring first from 55 yards out was Phil Crabtree followed by brother Roy from the 4 and l yard lines. Ray Wolver went over for the final T.D. while Louie Simmons added the extra points. The score doesn't reveal Altoona's ragged play however. Altoona 34 - Story City I3 The local eleven floored Story City when they scored 3 times in the first seven minutes a-nd gained 519 yards to silence their foe 34- l3. Jan McLeland rcn 54 and Lee Crda- tree 21 to score while Phil Crdatree went 63, 23, Gnd 40 yards to score climaxed by Louie Simmons converting 4 out of 5 times. Altoona 2l - Nevada 6 By defeating a powerful team, Nevada, Altoona became conference champs. Scoring twice was Phil Crdatree on 9 and 8 ycrd runs while brother Roy tallied once from the 4: Louie Simmons' educated toe added the 3 conversions while Nevada crossed the goal- line only once. Altoona 0 - State Center I3 Misrepresenting themselves with a poor showing in the final game of the season the Ramblers cane home with their second de- feat in 9 stats. With State Center dominating from the stcrt. It was the first time all yea' that the Ramblers were out-gained by their opponents.- Qirlo 'gaolzetball FRONT ROW: C. Wilson, B. Paulson, P. Pollitt, M.
