THE HIE STM 'PcMc ed t6e Seetto of Anaconda High School Anaconda, Montana ? € J?te H VU€UK "Tis well; 'tis something; we may stand Where he in . . . earth is laid. And from his ashes may be made The violet of his native land. "Tis little; but it looks in truth As if the quiet bones were blest Among familiar names to rest And in the places of his youth. T ennyson 2 DecUc ztio t We, dedicate this annual to Superintendent E. J. Nordgaard, in appreciation of his many years of service to the schools and to the com- munity. Two new grade schools, a new gym- nasium, a new pool, and a million dollar high school stand as a reminder of his vision. We wish him Godspeed — and the best of ulck in his future years. May he always have a fond spot in his heart for Anaconda and its citizens. The Class of 1956 3Scifiefu tte uCe tt ‘JfteAMUpe: To the Graduates: In this, my last message to high school senior s, I would like to repeat the hope which I have often expressed before, that through your high school experiences, you have not only been helped toward a satisfactory ad- justment to society, but also, what is more important, have acquired a vision of the nature and purpose of that society. I hope you have acquired an appreciation of your immense good fortune in having the privilege of grow- ing up in America and a profound conviction that, in spite of some imperfections, our American Society is the best in all history. And, finally, Ihope that each of you have been provided with inner resources that will help you to live with yourself, an intelligent, humane and morally responsible individual. E. J. Nordgaard Secondary education seeks to prepare our youth for assuming the privileges and re- sponsibilities of citizenship and for leading a meaningful and worthwhile life. It fulfills an- other key purpose by helping to prepare them for work - both those who continue with their for mal schooling and those who enter employ- ment immediately upon leaving high school. It is our hope that Anaconda High has ful- filled this obligation so that your future may be a happy and prosperous one. M. F.

Oh, Alma Mater, we love so true, The time has come for leaving you Four years now so swiftly have passed, Years filled with memories that forever will last. Years of studies, of games, and of plays Some happy, some sad in all of our days Good citizenship, good sportsmanship and many things more We've learned them all since we entered your door. Oh, Anaconda High, colors gray and blue You'll be our inspiration; our best is due to you.

Starting the year off with a fine show at the Slendive- Anaconda football game the band continued, during the season, to pre- sent half-time entertainment for Anaconda football fans. The winter Concert in F ebruary featured two soloists, BetramN. Haigh of Concordia College, Minnesota and Doris Burgess. Mr. Haigh pres- ented two numbers with the band and Doris Burgess, accompanied by the band, played the first movement of the Mendelssohn Piano Concerto. The concerts were well attended and were played to a very enthusiastic audience. Mr. Haigh conducted a clinic for the band while in Anaconda and made the following comments: "Finest trumpet section I have had the pleasure of hearing in a long time"-----of the concert he said "fine balance and intonation is especially good." On April 15,16 the Spring Concert was presented and this year fea- tured the twirlers who presented the show "Fantasy a la Femme" and were enthusiastically greated by the audience. Many fine compliments were received by the band members on their performances for both concerts. At the District 4 music festival in Butte April 6, 7, the band ensembles, and soloists came away with high honors; many excellent and superior ratings were received. On May 10-12 twenty excited band members boarded the bus to attend the State Music Festival in Missoula. The highlight of this event was the final concert of the all-state band, orches- tra and chorus. Seniors in the band this year are, Jerrilee Collette, Judy Goheen, La Verne Mattern, James McGinnis, Kathleen McGinnis, Mary Ann Mertzig, Mary Ritschel, and Carolyn Thomas. Probably the biggest event of the year for the band was the invitation received from Portland to attend the Annual Rose Festival there in June. This is an honor for our band as only three of four out-of-state bands are chosen annually to participate in this event. The band members worked very hard to help raise the money to finance this trip. 1955-56 saw the formation of the Anaconda Public School Band Parents Association which has been actively supporting the Junior Band, Twirlers, and Senior Band through money-raising activities and concert atten- dance. The annual candy sale this year netted the band over $500. 67COPPER GLOW High Si More Than 600 Attend School Senior Program More than 600 seniors from five high schools in this area attended a highly successful career and college day program in the Ana- conda high school Wednesday. The ovent was sponsored by the high school and the Kiwanis club. Schools represented at the ses- sion were Anaconda Public, Ana- conda Central, Powell county high of Deer Lodge, Granite coun- ty high of Philipsburg and Drum- mond high. The Deer Lodge and Drummond high schools had 100 per cent attendance of the mem- bers of the senior classes. ANACONDA, MONTANA Teams Hold Debate Anaconda Senior and Butte public high school teams held two dobates in Butte Wednesday after- noon, Royal G. Bamell, senior English instructor at Anaconda high, reported. Beverly Tescher and Robert Vukich argued the negative and Clayton Walker and William Praast argued the affirmative! against Butte high school teams., The subject of both debates was f •‘Resolved: That Government1 Subsidies Should be .Granted to High School Graduates Who Qualify for Additional Training.” The debaters were accompanied by Lester Thurow and LaVerne Cppperheads Hit (reat Falls For Title Tonight ie high Clancy Hornets tht Tig ; the Ran 16 for tl Anaconda High Tops Butte Bulldogs, 51-39 X Anaconda Anaconda from the I Wednesday Farlin with re high f- 22 was Band Parenfs Club Meeting Monday Night The Anaconda public school and parents' cTub will meet in Wallace, senior and Mr. BarnelL class debaters,!
