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

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.

The nineteen fifty-four grid squad started and ended the season with well-played
victories. 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.

The Home-coming program presents many pleasant ex-

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
The entire student body and faculty gathered in the gym-

Late in the fall thirty-four students interested in declam--
Humorous, Oratorical, Dramatic, and Interpretive Reading--began
working with Mrs. Ella Henneberg. After making their selection,
students began putting in many hours of work at practice. As a
result of this hard work some very fine appearances were made
at the Home Speech Contest, January 13, 1955. The twelve winning
one ratings will appear in the Preliminary Contest starting Feb-

If you have read our book
And enjoyed your reading.
If you may chance to take a second look
Then our time was worth taking.
If you may leaf through each and every page
And think of memorable happenings of 1954-'55,
If you shall think of these as the years shall age
Then these thoughts were meant to survive.
If you can find in it complete enjoyment
Then---The Spartan was a justly aim.
