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. ...g... President . . . . Vice-President . . Secretary . . . Treasurer . . .... . . Senate members . . .

Class I-listory 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". -10..

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,,, the matter. 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. HOW Ruth Quam is now a mom And just like the lady in the shoe, She has so many children she doesn't know W to do! 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. ...12.. hat Senior Class Play HSTREET OF DREAMS9' By John Rand ApH118,19,1951 CAST Cecily Ware . . .

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. .-13..

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.

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. We freshmen wish the seniors 'lGood Luck" in the future.

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. -24- Speech and Dramatics High Window' by Vern Powers Emily Wintlirop- Kathleen Questad Stephen Craig- Merlyn Askeland Judith Wfare-Loraine Plath Walter Hodge- George I-Iypes Linda Norton- Diane Schumacher Gray Bread by Iemz Laflarzm Motke-Marilyn Burt Riga-Mary Ella Peterson Solde-Eyvona Jensen Yolande-Rhea Horswell Cloudburst by 1.

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- ship Was something that the Armstrong girls hadn't done for many years. They didn,t do as well in the sectional and were removed from tournament play by Superior, who went on to win sectional consola- tion honors.

Life 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.
