However, all thirty-five students had plenty of space in the lockers at the back of the room. Social science projects, intensive arithmetic problems and creative bulletin boards kept them busy when they were not participating in band, football and basketball. Their science class was regularly held in the high school laboratory with Mr. Long as their teacher. Mrs. Salmon taught English, arithmetic, and spellingg Miss Blanchard, music. Mr. Phillips was the home room teacher and instructed them in geography, health, and reading.

' The beautiful Japanese colored chalk mural depicting the home life industries, and the country with its cities, minerals, imports and exports was drawn by the students of the sixth grade. The project gave the class the opportunity to express creatively what they had learned from reading and discussing. One of the most interesting and fascinating science units was the one about electricity. The class especially enjoyed it because many experiments could be performed. Experiments made the study of electricity more meaningful. Here at the always busy science table were some of the curious sixth graders discovering for themselves some ofthe facts about electricity.

The fourth grade was inspired with a unit in language on book reports- They set up an at- tractive library corner containing a library table, bookcase for interesting hooks, and a chart to use as a record for individual book reports. Many good hooks and authors were discussed- Other accomplishments for the year were mastering of the four fundamentals in arithmetic, the making of booklets Containing outlines and pictures of "Visits ln Other Lands," performing experiments in science, and keeping individual copies of penmanship to show progress through- out the year.

Much work was done with phonics which holds a very important place in reading. Vowel sounds, consonent sounds, vowel and consonant blends, suffixes, prefixes, root words, and how to mark off words were studied. Everyone worked to become a good independent reader to more thoroughly enjoy the many reading books and the third grade library books. Anita football, basketball and baseball players of 1960-1964 were building up winning teams by eating health foods-here pictured having a cabbage-apple party.

N .K For four weeks prior to the evening of the prom, the Juniors could be seen hid- ing submarines and multicolored fish in secret drawers to keep them from the in- quisitive eyes of the Seniors. As the day drew closer, our visions began to take the shape of a lighthouse, fish, and seaweed for an escapade in the mysterious realm of the ocean deep- Through the channels of imagination, let us conduct you on a tour of enchantment through the mysterious court of Neptune. "Neath the Rolling Sea" found the Junior and Senior classes, joining the sea nymphs for a gala subterranean holiday. The grand procession arrived on a deserted island with the sea breezes rustling thc attire of the island visitors. Through the bleak of night one light pointed the way, the shining beacon of the isolated light- house beckoning weary seafarers to the security of the island shores. The out- going tide ushered the sea voyagers down into the murky, mysterious deep. The evehing's festivities were held among thc two hundred and fifty tropical fish, sea horses, and nautical life. Ocean rock and brilliant coral bordered the sea wall sur- rounding the gymnasium. As May first drew to a close, the kingdom 'neath the rolling sea bid farewell to the earthly sub- jects attending the l955 Junior-Senior Prom. vi. o' A "Neath The Rolling Sea Sophomore sailors formed our banquet serving crew.

The a better record than the combined wins of the previous five years- The Spartans displayed good basketball and showed amazing desire the entire year, as they pulled many close games out of the fire- The splendid record was largely due to the hustle of the entire team and particularly of the following standouts: Max Mackrill led the squad in scoring the past two yearsg the top rebounder and second highest scorer, Rex Rathmanp the jurnp shot artist, Tom Salmong the ball handling and dribbling of Doug Smithg the shooting and rebounding of a newcomer, Dick Leggg the aggressive play of Gael Miller. The boys were just nosed out of first place in the Southwest Iowa Conference by Oakland as the Spartans compiled a record of eight wins and two losses in conference play. This was the best record compiled by an Anita team since joining the conference in 1947. Anita lost four Seniors: Max Mackrill, Rex Rathman, Gael Miller, and Ray Dorsey, of the twenty-five boys out for the team. Their loss will be heavily felt but with twenty-one boys re- turning and the material coming up from the Junior high squad, Anita's presence should be felt in basketball circles for a long time- SEASON'S RECORD Individual Scoring Anita 45 Avoca 29 Max Mackrill 208 Anita 50 Elliott 25 Anita 51 Oakland ' 49 Rex Rathman 192 Anita 55 Cumberland 49 Anita 57 Walnut 31 Dick Legg 126 Anita 48 Griswold 46 Anita 37 Oakland 40 Doug Smith 119 Anita 70 W alnut 2 8 Anita 31 Coon Rapids 64 Tom Salmon 111 Anita 48 Avoca 37 Anita 47 Elliott 42 Gael Miller 29 Anita 58 Griswold 72 Anita 69 Wiota 39 Anita 42 Massena 58 County Tournament Anita 48 Lewis 38 Anita 23 Atlantic 42 Sectional Tournament Anita -Q Exira -Q Spongol-od By 825 Total Points 739 TOWN AND COUNTRY INSUR.-XNCEQ .QNMJ . in -'WL' 'Y ,a:.xQQ.- 55 i Hua 5' wma i 'Un- gr- A 2 was MW! ws Massa ef ikzbfsh A r. 4 X 132 .

After three weeks of hard practice, the Spartans, wearing their brand new uniforms, played like a new team as they trounced Menlo, 33-6. They played good football all year and provided the fans with many thrills. The season was successful despite many injuries to key-men. Anita perhaps suffered their greatest loss when Captain Larry Hughes broke his collar bone in practice and was out the rest of the season after the second game. Although winning only three games while losing six, the team produced the best record in four years. The biggest thrill of the season came when the Anita team roared over their arch rival, Adair, Z8-0. It was the first time in twenty-four games that an Anita opponent failed to cross the Spartans goal line. These Spartans played their last season for Anita: Bob Kelly, halfback, averaged six and one-half yards per carryg halfback Roger Harris was top touchdown producer with five touchdownsg Marvin Scott, at guard, showed fine, hard blockingg and Dave Lantz, a tremendous defensive end. Big Dick Bissell stood out on defense and placed as All-Conference center. Two big wing men, Rex Rathman and Gael Miller, with their fine catches, will long be rememberedg and Larry Hughes' smashing tackles can still be heard. Anita placed three players on the Southwest lowa All-Conference teams. Dick Bissell earned a berth on the first string while Rex Rathman and Tom Salmon rated the second team. Graduation took a tremendous toll of the 1953 squad but if the younger Spartans improve, the team should produce even a better record next year. The entire squad was taken to Ames to see the Iowa State-Nebraska football game after the season was over- The annual football banquet honoring the squad and their fathers was prepared and served by the football mothers on the evening of November fifth.

When these plans were presented to the student body, they at once voiced a definite desire for a Council. A constitution was adopted, elections were held, members were given the oath of office, a sponsor was chosen and soon we had a working organization composed of nine members, two from each class and one member at large. Many duties were delegated to the Student Council. We sponsored all high school parties, helped plan homecoming festivities and eighth grade visiting day, arranged for election of cheer leaders, maintained a "lost and found" department and a student's suggestion box. We are affiliated with both the Iowa and the National Association of Student Councils. FIRST ROW: Mrs- McDermott, Sharon K-, Mardell F., Leona G., Wanda W., Grace W.

Assisting her were Mrs. Doris Strickland and the student lunchroom workers. The hot lunch program is financially solvent in our school. The students obtained their meals for thirty cents. This was made possi- ble by careful purchasing, a school potato patch, products from governrnent surplus and Federal milk subsidy. Every effort was made to prepare balanced meals from a carefully planned menu. About one hundred forty students and part of the faculty were served daily. THIS IS A TYPICAL PICTURE OF THE NOON PROGRAM The lunchroom workers were a necessity for making the lunch hour a complete success. These students who volunteered to help in the lunchroom were given a free meal for the day that they worked. Their co-operation was greatly appreciated in making the noon pro- gram run smoothly.

Maybe we were not all athletes but we all belonged to the Anita High School Girls' Athletic Association and we were all loyal members. Any Freshman girl who succeeded in rolling a peanut across the gym floor must have a little athletic prowess! What original ideas the Juniors had for making the program for our Christmas tea something to remember, while each class of Senior girls competed to see who could make the biggest and most colorful popcorn balls to go with the punch! During the basketball season, we were delegated to sell food, and in this way made money which was used in several different ways around the school building. Perhaps we were proudest of the annual spring tea we gave to honor all high school mothers. This was the one party that all the girls wanted to become a tradition in the Anita High School.
