This year's Student Senate started off with a
bang-campaigning for thc- office of president.
One could see balloons, posters, foot balls, etc.,
placed as random throughout the High School as-
sembly. After the excitement was over, however,
the Student Senate went to work. As representa-
tives of the student body, one of the duties of all
members of this group is to present the different
opinions of the students. During the year, this
organization sponsored two all-high-school parties,
a special Christmas program, and an assembly pro-
gram in the form of an old time vaudeville show.
This group has become an integral part of high
school life, and being a member is an honor.

In the graduating class of 1952, you will find twenty-one bright and happy Seniors. Four of these
pupils started out together in Kindergarten in 1939. To start their long journey through school, the four,
-Katheleen Questad, Merlyn Askeland, Dorothy Rovn, and Jean Madsen-had as their first teacher Miss
Lauton. Do you remember that wonderful little concert band this class had? I do!!
The first and second grade years marked the addition of two new and shining faces. They were-Carla
Miller in first grade, and Arnold Gaarde, Jr., in second grade. Miss Fear, our first grade teacher, took us
on one of the most thrilling trips we have ever had. This was our first train ride to Maple Hill. Miss Skov-
gaarde was our second grade teacher.
In the third grade, Geraldine Mitchell joined us. With Miss Dushinske as our teacher, we learned
more and more of the A. B. C.'s
In fourth grade we had Miss Ross as a teacher. It was during this year that some present day band
members got their start under Mr. Neimeyer.
Fifth grade was a rising year for our class. Bonita Redhead, Loraine Plath, Sylvia Vigdal, and Elna
Larsen joined our merry group. Our teacher this year was Miss Thompson.
Our class was now older because we were in Junior High. In seventh grade Bob Mitchell and Diane
Schumacher joined us, and in eighth grade our new members were George Hypes, Laurel Nelson, and
Ann Guerdet. During these three years we were honored by Mrs. Slaba, Mrs. Hendricksen, Miss Miller,
Miss Harker, Mr. Campbell, Mrs. Haworth, Mr. Powers, Mr. Ortmeyer, and Mr. Minkler for preparing
us for High School. Graduation and the 8th grade banquet were the biggest events in Junior High.
Green Freshmen! Mean and Green, as they so whimsically called us! Adjusting ourselves to High
School was no problem at all to this jolly group, because in no time at all we were ready to start on the
last four years of our journey. In the freshmen year we were honored by seven new members to our class.
They were-Kenneth Leiding, Donna Hansen, Evelyn Burgeson, Ruth Quam, janet Heathman, Mary
Jean McKean, and Geraldine Neilsen. During this year we lost Melvin Olson and Magnus Anderson. During
our Sophomore year we lost Geraldine Neilsen, Dorothy Lou Walter, Richard Larsen, and Donna Hansen.
Leanne George, Shirley Anderson, Jerald Danielson, Laurel Nelson, and Herbert Moore left in the Junior
year and David Smith in the senior year. During these four years we have had as teachers-Miss Sessler,
Mrs. Hinkley, Mr. Hansen, Mr. Hinkley, Mr. Harris, Mr. DeKoster, Mr. Stanley, Miss Rachut, Miss Shaw,
Miss Jarvis, Miss MacAfee, Mr. Bentz, Mr. Ortmeyer, Mr. Bogard, Miss Billings, Miss Morse, Miss Mac-
Donald, Mr. Hall, and Miss Clark.
Our High School years have been marked by many memorable occasions and activities. In ninth grade
a Camera Club was started and was in existance for two years. The Ji. year was high lighted by the class
play, banquet, and getting our class rings. I don't think the public has ever seen and probably never will
see another play like "Mountain Justice". We will never forget the fun and hard work we put into the
banquet during the two days we decorated the gym. The Senior year is remembered by many more events
such as Skip Day, Banquet, Senior Play, and getting our pictures.
In May when we leave this school which we have attended for so many years, let our goal be "To Rise
Higher, Aim Higher" because "Our Future Lies Within Ourselves".

Key 'co the Future
Listen, my Seniors and you shall hear
Of events to come, of coming year.
'Twas tenth of May in '52
When we told the fate of each of you!
George in his kerchief and Diane in her cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap.
When from the nursery there arose such a clatter,
George sprang from his bed to see what was .......r,,,
Simple Leiding went to Iowa U.
He had so many brains the professors didn't k
what to do,
So they sent him to Yale
And said, "We'll study you!"
Bonita Redhead once tops in her class,
Now just walks around the schoolyard,
Mowing the grass.
Now Merlyn Askeland, that handsome sheik,
Lets looks at his future, just take a peek.
He lives on his farm in the center of the state,
An very seldom goes out on a date.
Poor Kathleen wound up at Purdue
Where she took a stab and worked in the lab
Spraying fertilizer with an antomizer.
Miss Lorraine Plath of Tiger Tales Staff,
Now works for the Times,
Writing silly rhymes.
Husky Bob Mitchel finally settled down
He,s got more money than anyone in town.
Evelyn Burgeson, her poor brain does rack
For someplace to put chrome
On her husband's eight Caddillac's.
Mary Jean McKean
That rich old maid,
Will still be here
When most of us in the grave are laid.
Ruth Quam is now a mom
And just like the lady in the shoe,
She has so many children she doesn't know W
Ann Guerdet now runs a cafe
Where she serves former seniors
Anytime of the day!
Dorothy Rovn, of much renoun
Can now be seen on television screen.
Don't turn up your nose and scourn,
I-Ier act is not pure corn.
Geraldine Mitchel, they say, has nursed
Many people away from riding the hearse.
Janet I-Ieathman now the owner of a stable,
Raises colts by the dozen
With a Palomino label.
Arnold G-aarde's now an engineer.
I-Ie,ll take any job in the hemisphere.
He'll build you a bridge or tear down a ridge.
Elna Larsen a connoisseur of food is,
And at this job,
I hear she,s a whizz.
Jean Madsen is the owner of a funeral home
And in her black hearse all the times does roam.
You are always welcome there,
But when you visit her, beware.
Carla Miller made Iowa's first woman Senator.
But an acquaintance of hers the other day
Swore she does nothing in Congress but
Sit and snore.
Donna Hanson became an heir
To a manufacturer of long underwear,
And is in best health
Due to her increased wealth.
Sylvia Vigdal who was quite a laugh,
The last one in her industrious class,
Is now a chief on the telegraph
One of the big shot brass.

The setting of this new comedy is a living room
at the "Proscenium Club" near Times Square, New
York. The "Proscenium Clubn is a boarding-house
for girls who are trying to gain a foothold on
Broadway. Among it denizens are: a shy maiden
from the South, a mysterious young woman who
has has something to hide, a langorous Russian
from the Moscow Art Theater, and a faded star
who used to be on intimate terms with the great
names of the theater and who Cloesn't mind talking
about them. But the two central characters are
jean and Linda, friends since girlhood days, they
have come from the Middle West to battle Broad-
way. Now, after two years, they are still waiting
for their big "break,'. Jean, who has the greater
share of beauty and talent, has become discouraged,
but Linda is holding on, fiercely determined to
make her dreams come true. Tony Barton, in love
with Jean, has written a play called "Laughing
Lady", which is accepted by Sam Parker, one of
New York's big producers. Jean, furious when
Tony fails to get her the leading part in the play,
decides to marry Roscoe Myers, a wealthy young
stockbroker who has been courting her. Linda, who
secretly adores Tony, takes the job of understudy
in his play, but just when it appears she is finally
to get her big chance, Sam Parker changes his mind
and drops the production of "Laughing Lady".
Then, in a thrilling and surprising climax, Linda
wins the success that has seemed hopeless.

Itis been a long hard struggle but we've finally
succeeded in earning the title of "upper classmenf'
Some of our experiences have been bitter and others
sweet, but all in all everyone of us has fond mem-
ories of the Armstrong School. The course of the
events taking place in this year has been great.
Among the outstanding ones is the day when we
eagerly slipped our shiny new rings onto our fin-
gers. Of course we can't ignore the tedious chore
of selling refreshments at the basketball games in
order to earn money for the Junior-Senior Prom.
Then came the one night none of us will forget, the
night of the Prom. lt took lots of hard work and
plenty of money but we had fun and enjoyed our-
selves a great deal, This has been a swell year, but
we are still looking forward to becoming Seniors.

Some people may think we sophomores have a
colorless year-no initiation, no Junior-Senior Ban-
quet, no class plays. What a misconception! As a
sophomore, one is just getting into the swing of
things. As freshmen we were eager, excited, cur-
ious, and confused. Now we are smooth, suave,
sophomores with two more exciting years before
us. Not that this has been dull! Class parties, as-
sembly programs, class movies, single-leader dis-
cussions fa product of English classj , driver train-
ing, and even a class play, the infamous "Cloud
Burst" which was supposed to be a tragedy, and
it was-these and countless other items combined
to give us a year we'll never forget.

On August 27, 1951, we freshmen came to
school unaware of all the fun and friends we would
have in high school. Since it was our first year in
A.H.S. we were rather shy or "green,' as everyone
called us. About the time we started to get brave
a few of the freshmen were initiated, but from
then on we had a lot of fun. We had school parties,
sports, and band besides all of the other enter-
tainment provided for us, which made us glad
that we had come to high school.
As this year comes to a close we will never for-
get the fun we had as freshmen, and also look
forward to another successful year in A.H.S.

The Senior Band consisted of sixty-seven mem-
bers from all grades starting at the fourth grade.
Some of the activities of the band are playing
for programs, assemblies, regular concerts and assist
with programs such as P.T.A., and at basketball
games. The goals of the band are to be well bal-
anced, play all types of music, to be of service to
the community, and learn to read easy music at
sight. The band program gives to the students
training in dependability, self esteem, physical
alertness, sportsmanship, cooperation, punctuality,
and self control.
Our band has been successful at contests. Last
year the band got a rating of one at the state con-
test playing the numbers "Eroica" and Mexican
Overturev. This year the band will play "Bach
Bouquet" and 'Symphony in B". Of all the en-
sembles and solos going to contest, Armstrong
brings back about three-fourths of first ratings.

This year's basketball squad enjoyed a fairly
good season, considering they had lost five letter
winners. They played an entire season of 202
games. From this we determine the win-loss record
for the year,-9 wins, 11 losses. Among the wins
was the Emmet County Championship. The girls
played a good game against Ringstead-beating
them by the score of 43 to 20. Also, they were in
the finals in which they played Dolliver in a game
that finished with the exciting score of 35-32,-
our favor. The winning of the county champion-

done for many years. They didn,t do as well in the
sectional and were removed from tournament play

We come into this world as a helpless creature. We are dependent upon
the love, devotion and material resources of our parents for our
needs. Our parents save and sacrifice to provide for our ever increasing
physical and mental requirements.
One of our needs is education, both formal and informal. It may be
defined as that vast wealth of knowledge saved and stored by our brain
cells. Formal education may end with school days, but informal education
continues with each new experience, observation or sensation encoun-
tered in our daily lives.
As we progress through life, we use the knowledge we have acquired
to provide for our daily physical needs. This knowledge, coupled with
initiative and industry brings rewards beyond our daily requirements.
It is smart to save our excess earnings for emergencies and for use as capital
to further our business interests.
We invite you to use our Savings Department.
