Thls former system of control somet1mes referred

modern cooperat1ve corporatlon was formed by a
popular vote of all CIIIZCIIS Isolatlon was a th1ng of the

people of Amana began to attend hxgh schools III
nelghbormg towns They attended 1n such numbers
that It convmced the people of Amana that a hlgh
school mould. have to be estabhshed ln thelr home
In 1934 the Board of Educatlon passed a resolution
to establlsh a hlgh school ln Mnddle Amana Only the
frrst two years of mstructxon were to be given The re
mauung years were to be taken m atdqoxnmg towns
Amana was 1n a penod of transmon and the nat1on
was 1n the mxdst of a senous depressxon. Tltus accounts
for the boards -declslon to pl.'0V1d8 for on.ly twwo years
of school J R Neveln of Manly, Iowa, was selected
by the school board to be the nrst superlntendent
Alvm Skow of West Branch was selected as hrs assxst
The fxrst day of the Amana High School was Sep

students compared very favorably w1th Iowa state

From the earllest begmnmg, students pubhshed a

Athletxcs were not overlooked yet never allowed to

Boy Scout Troop Every hxgh school boy took part
Edxe Brandt orgamzed the G1rl Reserves whlch ln
eluded nearly every g1rl The flrst hxgh school play
coached by the supermtendent was so successful that
the perfonnance was repeated four txmes by request
Before the end of the f11'St year lt had become clear
that Amana would be forced by pubhc opxmon to
estabhsh a full four year hlgh school for 1ts youth
Smce our country was Just emerglng from a most dxsas

THE HISTORY OF A H S CCONTINUEDQ
For a number of years after the 1n1t1al outlay of
money for the equlprnent of the school covmparatxvely
few unprovements were posslble A klndergarten was
added n 1939 Federal funds through WPA were made
avarlable Dons Bloone of Vxctor was the teacher 1n
charge Parents who were formerly opposed to trans
portlng the chxldren of grade school to other towns
now consented to have them brought to a central
school Th1s paved the way for the later consolxdatxon
of all v1llage schools These had prevlously been con
ducted much as ordmary rural schools Pres1dent
Frxley of Ames College and W R Boyd of the Iowa
Board of Educatlon met wlth the board members
and other leaders 1n Amana to study add1t1-ons and
lmprovements ln the currxculum It was fmally agreed
that agrrculture would be most practxcal The Smlth
Hughes course under federal and state supervxsx-on
was adopted by the Board Chr1st1an Hess an Ames
graduate was engaged by the Board as agrxculture
xnstructor The plan however proved futlle smce
condxtxons ln Arrana were different f om thos m any
other Iowa oommunxty Farmmv was an lmportant
Amana enterprlse but there were no 1nd1v1dua1 farm
ers or farmsteads hence It was rmoos lble to meet
federal prerequ1s1t1es For thxs reason Chr1st1an Hess
resigned as mstructor The school then added a manual
trammg course John R Neveln to be mstructor
A home ec-onomlcs course had already been added
the prevlous year w1th MarJor1e Bales as teacher
The grade schools xn the vlllages contxnued to be
conducted much as they had been under the former
system untzl 1939 At that tune they were reorgan1zed
so that no grade teacher had more than two grades
to teach The number of grade schools was reduced
from seven to three These were ln the larger towns,
Amana South and M1ddle The f1.rst school bus was
purchased xn 1938 a second bus 1n 1942 Amana was
probably one of the flrst schools to adopt the plan
now being followed ln recent oonsolldatlons Th1s
consxsts of transportxng puplls between towns ln such
a way that bulldmgs ln the several towns may be used
lmutmg the number of grades per teacher and makmg
posslble more complete ocnsohdatlon The or1g1nal
budget of S10 000 had been mcreased to S27 500
Oonsxderlng the lnadequacy of the library and lab
orabory equxpment durxng the f1rst years and also
the fact that nearly all of the hxgh school teachers
were recent college graduates w1thout prevnous ex
perlence the SCh01aSt1C record of Amana graduates
m colleges and the large percentage of graduates en
terlng college IS concluslve evidence of the excellence
of lI'lSII'1lCt101'l and management Approxxmately 25076
of Amana graduates entered college whxle the Iowa
state average was only 10 percent It would be a mls
take to ascrlbe the success of th1s achlevement ex
CIUSIVBIY to the system of mstructlon and dnscxplxne
Amana was notably free from one of the detrimental
mfluences that have been pnmanly responsxble for the
low esteem 1n whxch Amer1can hlgh schools are held,
especxally 111 scho1ast1c achlevement compared to Euro-
pean secondary schools Able and consc1ent1ous school
adm1n1strators have not been able to carry out and ap
ply thelr professronal knowledge because of many
pressures such as well meanmg athletxc enthus1asts,
and p011t1C.l8IlS or men rn posxtions of power The
teachmg professxon has, apparently, always been held
rn h1gh regard ln Amana Fortunately th1S IS begm
nxng to be true of more commumtles today than for
merly If we are gomg to have sclentlsts and mathe
mat1c1ans sufflclent rn number and equal 111 ab1l.1ty to
other countrles rt wrll be necessary to begm trammg
these 1n our Junxor and seruor hlgh schools An abso-
lute prerequlslte for th1s IS to secure teachers wlth
expert professlonal trammg and glve them authority
to carry out the1r ldeas The key to thrs goal IS better
pay for teachers but even more important is respect
for the professxon
Among the drfferent factors whlch contrlbuted to
the success of the Amana hlgh school IS one that has
not always been reoogmzed by students of Amana
SOCICIY There IS a keen sens1t1v1ty to the art1st1c and
fmer emotronal elements of culture For lnstance,
stage scenery for plays was pamted by Carl F11ck
an artxst of natlonal fame An art1st1c appreclatlon IS
demonstrated 1n the products of factory ands the home
workshop m whlch boys were encouraged to desrgn
and make 81110165 of thelr own deS1gD The g1rls are
expert 1n makmg household artlcles of the1r own art
1st1c deslgn A f1ne mens chorus has existed from
the early pmoneer t1mes Famous artlsts authors and
statesmen have been makmg more frequent VlSltS to
Amana than to any other community among these was
Dr Hans Luther top-rankxng ambassador from Ger
many to our country Amana was the only Iowa com
munxty whlch he Vlslted Our students were able to
gwe frequent reports on hlstonc men and women from
personal contact wlth them all of which has a real
educatronal value The dlsadvantage of some ' Amana
or German accent was more than offset by the advan
tage of bexng blhngual Th1s proved to be a valuable
acoomphshment 1n college and also m the armedl
By the year 1950 when J R Neveln reslgned as
supermtendent 240 students had completed the Amana
Hxgh School The great majorlty served m the armed
forces of our country The government had long ago
granted non combatant standlng to the members of
the Amana Church Not one of the graduates chose
to avaxl themselves of thls prlvllege Slnce 1950 dur
mg the past ten years the Amana Schools have stead!

tralnlng rn the fleld of science Slnce there was a lack
of fac1l1t1es hor such thmgs as chemlstry and phyS1CS
It IS understandable that there be a def1c1t ln th1s area
It CAN be taught from a textbook Wlth sxmple ex
perxments for demonstratnon We hope that the school
system expands 1n thls area 1n the future to better
prepare the students who plan to gwo to college How
about a few more test tubes and less new basketballs?

I thxnk the Amana school does more for 1ts student
body than Just the average readlng wr1t1ng and arlth
met1c I bel1eve strongly that because of the close
student teacher relat1onsh1p our students learn re
spect and respons1b1l1ty as well as a good educat1on
whlch 1n so many schools IS more or less neglected
To me an educat1on 1snt everythmg Its more 1m
portant to be prepared for what l1es ahead and know
mg what to do at the rlght txme whether It be a career
school or rnarrlage That s why I thlnk so h1ghly of the

A short tlme ago we, the class of 1960, marched
upon tlus stage to the tradxtlonal ' Pomp and Crrcum
stance" to become the 25th graduatxng class of Amana
Iilgh School As the fanulrar notes were heard and
the tradrtlonal caps and gowns observed I m sure that
there could be found a w1de var1ety of thoughts among
all of us To our parents xt seemed like only yesterday
when they watched us take our frrst step or heard
us say our fnrst words, and now look upon us as
young adults To our teachers we represented a fm
ished product manufactured durmg the last twelve
years whxch xs now ready to be put to the test. All
our friends looked upon us as the future, yes, the
future of a better oommumty, a stronger natlon, and
a more peaceful world.
We, the class of '60, realize all the faxth that IS be
mg entrusted to us We know that we are endxng an
important phase of our life on thls stage tomght. We
are aware that after we leave here we wlll board our
own mdlvxdual ship in sa11 down one of the twenty
fxve seas that l1e before us at this time usmg know
ledge as power and God as strength No one course
w1l1 be smooth, we will all meet many challenges,
obstacles and pleasures Even though none of us IS
takmg the same shxp or sallmg the same sea we are all
headed 1n the same general dlrection and lf we all
do our best at steerlng our own shlp we can't help
but umte rn the harbor of a better tomorrow We real
1ze that xf we are to accept the challenges overcome
the obstacles and appreciate the pleasures that wxll
make us a really great part of the future we must
become better tndxviduals.
One of the best ways to become a better mdxvxdual
IS to set a goal Why not set a goal to be hke water
Yes I sald water that sxmple compound known as
H20 m Physlcs the word we recognlze as a noun rn
Enghsh the llquxd which IS such a necesslty ln Home
Eeonomlcs and the substances we know as a .defuute
human need ln Bxology True water is all of these
thmgs Yet xt IS so very much more Let us look at
the very l1ttle thought of yet so favorable qualxtxes
that water possesses
Water never reslsts thlngs, yet it wears away the
more resxstant thlngs
Water f1ts itself to condxtxons, takxng the shape of
whatever xt IS 1n Yet, what shapes more thmgs than
Water does work, but lt never appears busy, lt lets
ltself be used
Water has learned humllity It is colorless yet what
IS a ra1nbow"
It is tasteless yet what better is there to dunk"
Water seeks low places, yet those from h1gh places
come to dunk of It
Oonsiderlng these qualltles we must admlt that It
would be an honor as an Lndwldual to be l1ke water
I'm sure that 1f we try and navlgate water's hldden
quahtles as we sall down our own sea of l1fe we
can't help but end up as a better Lndmvldual m a better
oommumty a stronger nation and a more peaceful
world makmg for a better tomornow

God my shepherd walks besmde me,
And I know I-hs way IS best
God my shepherd walks beside me,
I.n Hls love, I calmly rest
I heard these lmes for the f1rst txme last Sunday
in the Clucago Central Church where the Amana
Semors were honored wxth spec1a1 Baccalaureate
exerclses whlch I shall always remember I was so
xmpressed wxth these lmes that I d hke to share thezr
meamng wxth you tomght
Whxther shall we walk" As Semors, our walk to-
gether has come to an end We separate, taking m
dxvldual paths Yet our future paths lead to a walk
wxth the commumty, our country and wlth ourselves
What a pleasant pnvilege lt has been to grow up m
Amana My heart goes out to each and every one
of you who has made the C0!Il1'l'lU.!'l1ty what xt IS I
thank you for the opp-ortumty bestowed upon us
your young cxtlzens If not for you, we wlould ,not be
Certamly above all our oommumty IS known for zts
religious sect I feel most fortunate for thas her1tage
and tradition of whxch we are a part I hope that we
may carry to others as we go out mto the wsorld th1s
bellef of slmpllclty and godlxness Wh1Ch we have been
taught by sour elders
Our forefathers settled thls community m a search
for freedom freedom of rellglon and freedom of
act1v1ty We are hexrs to thls freedom and as a result
of thelr struggles we are free cxtxzens of the Umted
States of Amerxca We owe our slncere and actlve
patriotxsm to our country
Recently President Elsenhower reported to the .na
tion ' Informed cltlzens are the guardxan and spmt
of democracy " Though we took no part 1n fxghtmg for
freedom we must fxght to keep It Our motto expresses
our weapons Knowledge our Power God our
Strength In walkxng with our country we must keep
the Splflt of democracy ahve wxth our power and
strength Wlth the world rn the sltuatlon It s
today we know not what our future holds Yet I feel
the Unlted States superxor to all athexstlc countrles
for on our s1de we have the strength of God
Now as lndxvrduals faclng our future alone we must
learn to walk wlth ourselves We can do thls -only by
acceptmg ourselves as we are We may reach true
happmess only by recognlzmg our strengths weak
nesses and our mner selves May we face the world
wlth a humble Splflt ever ready to learn but fortxhed
wlth courage and vxslon may we do 'our work to the
best of our abxllty
As we leave each other at the cnossroads we must
walk by omselves T-o you fellow classmates I say
thank you for your frlendshlp especxally I w1sh to
include the Walford Sem-ors in sayxng that I am most
happy that y-ou shared thls year wlth us To all of the
Semors I wxsh the very best of luck and success Ln the
To all our teachers I say thank yvou Thank you for
takmg the trouble to correct our m1stakes for your
encouragement and unceasmg faxth You are truly the
ones who made school worthwhile Alon! wxth the
teachers go our ever gratefulness to y-ou our parents
for vour guldance and love
I have stated earller that IZYOWIHE up ln Amana has
been a pleasant prwnlege Amana IS one of the few
small oommun1t1es that IS world known Amana R
frlgeratmon has been responsible for thls recogmtmn
I thank the company and Mr Foerstner for the won
derful trlp to Chlcaao and for the scholarshm
As we say farewell mav we face the future eve
dependent on our Shepherd and ln Hls love fmd rest
peace and happiness
