"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.

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.

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.

A good bye was never harder to say
But we'll do our best in our own special way.
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.

This year has been an eventful one for everyone in the Soldiers Me-
morial Band. 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
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
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-
The annual candy sale this year netted the band over $500.

sion were Anaconda Public, Ana-

bers of the senior classes.

important in winter gasoline. Fresh power is what you need to
start you with a bang on cold mornings, warm your engine in a
hurry and put you over the hills with a fresh, booming power you
can feel. And to guard its fast-firing fresh power, Carter moves
gas to you fast—in a constant 24-hour flow through more than
600 Servicenters across Carterland. Stop in for the warmest
welcome in the West, the freshest power you can buy.
