Extra-curricular activi- ties again included athletics, journalism, dramatics, and music. Eight instructors 'shared the res- ponsibility of teaching the twenty subjects and handling the extra- curricular activities. 2 Ola ged, we ,Jag foo Don't get the idea that every- one at BHS is a study-bug. We have a lot of fun too. One of the main "fun" items was the annual carni- val, which this year proved to be another huge success for all Bran- donites. Perhaps the most fun came in the preparation of thecarnival, for it was there we found that a little work and a little play can make for a lot of fun.

The co-operation and sportsmanship shown by Brandon's first team serve as a symbol of those same qualities found in the school and its students.

High school brought the opport- unity to participate in extra-cur- ricular activit1es,amdthe freshies made the most of it. Their activi- ties early marked them as a class which would be proud of BHS, and make BHS proud of them. Managing the carnival lunch room to a fin- ancial success proved to be the freshies largest class project of the year. Class adviser Osborne Liaboe and senior officers Eleanor Peterson, treasurerg Oliver Erickson, presi- dent, Leo Heggen, treasurer, Paul Thoreson, secretary deliberate on senior class affairs at a short business meeting. ff? 5 fy, ! sf Activities were again in thespot- light during the sophomore year as the sophomores,the1r numberreduced to 25, began to hit their stride and make available to the school their many talents and ambitions. Climax of the year, socially speak1ng,was the choosing of twelve of their members to dress as sailors and serve at dm junior-senior ban- duet, which utilized the theme, 'Anchors Awe1gh." Then came the jndor yeaq a year that was filled to the brim with fun and excitement! Several of the boys were on the 'W' basketball squad, and thereby be- jorie Lee were BHS representatives for DAR,and Boys' and Girls' State, respectively, Darlene was chosen by the faculty to compete in the county contest on the basis of scholarship, persona- lity, and leadership.

Three of the girls were cheerleaders. November saw the presentation of the class play,nGoodbye,HollywoodY It was the start of a job that would prove to be fun as well as work when the juniors took over the Branhisko, and near the end of the year some of them were honored by being accepted into Quill and Scroll journalism society. Much 'hush-hushu work went into the preparation of the jnnar-senior banquet, which was presented on May 9. It constituted the firsdand Onlyl performance of the 'Bungling Brothers C1rous.' All BBB students took part in carnival preparations. Here several are shown on the afternoon before the '52 carnival, placing the fin- ishing touches on booths. Note the worried--and weary--expressions! September rolled around,and the class of '53 re-entered BHS to com- plete their fhml year of schooling vowing that it would be theh'best. During freshie initiation week the seniors allowed theirnornery siden to take control of their welcome to the class of '56, Carnival time saw the seniors marching through the gymnasium to the strains of the Coronation March preparatory to the crowning of the Queen and Marshal for 1952-53- Jeanne Schulte and Jim Ode. F ormals or foolin', always flm The styles of the year ran to corduroy shirts for the boys and, for the girls, blue jeans every 'luesday and Frid sy, despite vigorous protestatlon from the boys. Skip day and the senior play were early spring highlights, with the year's social climax in May, when the seniors sat back, relaxed, and were honored at the junior-senior banquet and prom. Baccalaureate and commencement exercises completed the activities for the twenty-five graduating sen- iors. With the knowledge and ad- vice given them throughout their high school years, they set out to make their way in the world. Sev- eral fostered plans for attending college, and others prepared for working careers.

Enthusiasm-full of fun, but when it really comes to hard work they are always on the ball. That describes the junior class of 'S3. This class has taken part in all of the high school activltles,with journa- lism highlighting a year of real work. Lila Risty and Norma Severson took the reins as Branhisko editors while Dorothy Rovang and Barbara Powers were chosen associate editors of the Links. One could also have found members of the class in declam,sports, music, and ora- torical activities. 'Me and My Shadow", the junior class play,prov1ded for fun backstage as well as laughs for those looking over the footlights. The juniors sponsored the jun1or-sen- ior banquet that highlighted their spring activities. Presenting the bouncing sophomore class of '53 and all their rollicking good times and serious ones tool Declam started their work for the year.

Officers chosen for this activity were as fol- lows: Jim Ode, president, Marjorie Lee, vice-president, Eleanor Peter- son, secretary-treasurer, and John Er:lckson,student council representa- tive. The band preformed at the Christmas program,mid-winter program and the spring music concert. The mid-winter concert presented by the band was the first of its kind at Brandon. Several selections were played, including 'The Waltz King", which featured several Strauss melodies, Along the other songs presented were 'Desert 8ong"by Romberg,"Truspeter's I.ullabye", featuring cornet soloist Jil Ode, and 'Brasses to the Fore". Spring found the band hard at work on contest selections. The en- tlre group traveled in April to Hadi- son, S. D., where they took part in the yearly music contest. 35 The marching band added much pep to the football games held on the home field. This band was composed of all the regular band members with the exception of those on the football squad. For the last game of the season, the Brandon pepsters gave an exhibition during the game at Bridgewater.
