Dorsey. We students of Anita Schools are extremely proud of the board members who spend many evenings planning to provide a complete education for us. To these men shown here we express our thanks. We share with Mr. Fatka the joys he must feel in his many accomplish- ments since coming to Anita Public Schools. Mr. Fatka manages to pro- mote a feeling of warmth and unity which give us the great co-operation we have in our school system today. There is just no way in which the students can express how they feel toward Marilyn. She is the girl who is Mr. Fatka's secretary. Although she is very thorough in this work she somehow finds time to assist in almost any activity. Marilyn has the full respmsibility of sponsoring the cheer- leaders and of being secretary to the Board. The heavy load does not affect her pleasing personality, which is such an inspiration to us. To our principal, Mr. Charles Sal- mon, goes our heartfelt thanks for accurate permanent records and for routine tasks such as: the organiza- tion and execution of the film pro- gram, the endless decisions con- cerning absences. Mr. Salmon also teaches history, general mathematics and economics. M sf TIO 1 ff , N 1, , W' 1 MRS.

In the spring of 1954 six girls were chosen from a group of students interested in cheerleading by two Senior cheerleaders and pep club sponsors. These girls practiced until school was out. The following fall they began planning for pep meetings and cheerleading at the foot- ball games. Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Pratt sent for books containing new yells that they could work on for the new school year. They also decided to buy purple corduroy and make slacks to go with the white wool sweaters they had just bought. After football, skirts were made for the basketball season. One of the sponsors, Mrs. Opal Pratt, left at the end of the first semester: Mrs. Robinson continued to help plan pep meetings. Some very clever skits were planned to give variety to the pep meetings.

In between, the Spartans dropped five while winning one and tying one, thus making a record of three victories, five defeats, and one tie. The Spartans featured a deceptive split T attack offensively. Operating without a power backfield, the offense depended upon speed and deception. Blanked by just one opponent the Spartans were able to score the first time they got their hands on the ball in seven of the nine games. The offense produced an average of two and one-half touchdowns per game, Although the club did not win any championship, many individuals won honors. Dave Bissell, Senior guard, and Gary Neighbors, Senior halfback, were elected honorable captains for the season. Both of these boys were also selected on the all-conference first team. Lynn Bissell at center and Dick Legg at quarterback were both a unan- imous choice for the all-conference second team. Doug Smith at end, Leland Nelson at guard, and Jack Hari-is at halfback received honorable mention on the all-conference team. Tom Salmon, sidelined with a broken leg at the outset of the season, was made the team statistician. The conferences coaches voted Tom a position on the all-conference team on the merit of his outstanding play in previous years. .Five Seniors, Doug Srnith, Dave Bissell, Dennis Euken, Gary Neighbors, and Tom Salmon will be sorely missed when all is called on the gridiron next fall. After complet-ing the best record in five years, the squad was taken to Ames to enjoy the football game between Iowa State and Oklahome. The football mothers treated the squad to their annual banquet to bring the season to an end officially.

This is an activity in which everyone has a chance to participate. Each class has its own responsibility in making the day a success. Two days before Home-coming nominations for the Queen and attendants were made by the football boys. Also this year, the basketball girls were elected to nominate a Duke and attendants. This was a new and successful addition to the annual program. The entire student body and faculty gathered in the gym- nasium at 2:15 to witness the event of crowning the Queen. .Toyce Pearson, a Senior, was crowned Queen by Duke Gary Neighbors, also a Senior. The Queen's attendants were Leona Gissible, Senior, Marna Larsen, Junior, and Sherry Parkinson, a Junior. The Duke attendants were Dick Legg, Junior, Gary Symonds, Sophomore, and Harold McDaniel, a Freshman. A short skit given by the Pep Club followed the honorable event. The Queen and her attendants were brought onto the football field that evening in a convertible and ushered to the thx-one by the Duke and attendants. Due to cold weather, the Queen and her attendants were unable to remain on the field through- out the entire game as is customary. Following the Anita- Avoca football game, high school students and alumni enjoyed a dance in the school gymnasium. Sponsored By ANITA OIL COMPANY J rl- Queen, Duke and Attendants P., Sharon P.

Word comes from Aunt Sophronia that she plans to come for a visit at which time she in- tends to give each girl a 55,000 check because she has such a great dislike for boys. Winnie, Whois a boy, decides to borrow some of Bin- nie's clothes and disguise himself during Aunt Sophronia's visit. The Buford's home is quite the gath- ering place for friends fboth boys and girlsl. The boys who have been around have completely won over Aunt Sophronia, causing her to say if one of the twins had been a boy who could carry on the farnily name he would have received a szexooo check. Poor Winnie! He has overplayed his hand. But a surprising event takes place Which makes everything all right and he gets his big check after all.
