@CUttO t Sc6 oC Sout 'Dakota i DccUccUcok Recognizing the importance of the service rendered by school board members to the youth of Canton particularly but to the community general- ly, Canton High School dedicates its i960 annual to the Canton School Board Members. Their work draws little monetary reward, the appreciation of thoughtful citizens and the oppor- tunity to be of service being their chief satis- faction. They carry the serious responsibilities they have assumed with faithfulness and integrity, making their decisions, in so far as they are able, in the best interests of all the people. The students at Canton High School take this opportunity to express their gratitude for the in- terest and the service of these civic-minded men I and women ttutuaC Sta Peter Tollinger, Photography Editor; Sandra Eaton, Editor; Miss Tomberg, Advisor; Craig Odeen and Linda Tollefson, Assistant Editors; Loren Long, Business Manager; Janet Suter, Copy Editor.

These senior representatives were selected by popular vote. Minneapolis was the scene of the first real adventure of the CHS Chorus. Leaving in two chartered buses on March 25, the chorus first sang in Mankato. While in the twin cities, concerts were given at veterans' and crippled child- ren's hospitals and at South- dale Shopping Center. Back in South Dakota, the chorus sang at the Cataract Hotel in Sioux Falls to climax a highly re- warding weekend. Something new was added this year when a mass concert was given by the combined bands of Lennox and Canton. This was done instead of going to the usual large group contest in Vermillion. Under the director- ship of Mr. Harold R. Wortman, the concert was given April 8."Class Ring," was the name of the senior play which was present- ed in April. The situa- tion comedy dealt with the problems of a teen- age girl who decided to go steady. Dallas Free- man was director of the three-act presentation. Pictured above are the members of the play cast. They are from left to right in the back row D. Nordseth, J. Van Wou- denberg, S. Enstrom, L. Drake, D. Oakland, S. Eaton, and D. Huckfeldt.

I Student ouuciC The student council represents the student body of Canton High School. They defend our rights and present our grievances in student council meetings. Another of their duties is to check the lockers. In elected student Johnson Lincoln dldate. addition to being president of the council, Katie was also chosen the County D.A.R. Can- 8Sandra Anderson Bill Harris Carol Stensland If rain makes flowers beautiful-—why doesn't it rain on me???? I like a girl with a good head—on my shoul- der. After man came woman, and she's been after them ever since. President Vice President Secretary-Treasurer Motto: To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. For what then will the Class of '60 be remembered? Our size? no, we are not an exceptionally large class. Our scholarship? no, that too is average. But what about such qualities as spirit, initiative, and leadership? We are a class proud of our many achievements. The floats we have produced for Homecoming have won first prize awards throughout high school, despite the economical means used in building them. "Let's Dump 'Qn" was the theme of our freshmen float, while "We're Pulling for You" was the theme of the sophomore float. "They Smell De-feet" was the theme used during our Junior year. Since the seniors usually enter a float in the "most beautiful" catagory, this year "Our Boys Will Shine," adorned with four lovely girls, was the prize-winning float. For the last three years our team has won the class basketball tourney and has gone on to victory over the faculty. In the athletic department the Class of '60 has played a vital role in breaking records in all sports. As juniors we sponsored one of the outstanding Junior- senior banquets in many years. "Mardl Gras" was the theme that decorated the Hiawatha Golf Club on that rainy evening. No effort or cost was too great to make it a memora- ble event. As our high school days come to a close the sixty-three members of the class, especially the nineteen who started first grade together, have many memories to recall. The class,comprised of many capable leaders and willing workers, would like to have the faculty and student body know that all they have done for us and with us has been greatly appreciated and has done much to make these four years im- portant and outstanding in our lives. 10Barbara Toft The only certainty is that nothing is cer- tain.

The ECHO, a bi-weekly publica- tion by the journalism department of CHS keeps the students and the townspeople Informed of the activ- ities at the high school. In the annual ratings given by the South Dakota High School Press Association, the ECHO for 1958-59 received a first class rating. Each week the forty-five ECHO reporters met to study one of the various phases of journalism. The group was divided to cover the dif- ferent areas of Journalism as news- writing, advanced newswriting, fea- tures, business and headlines, sports, and proofreading. One of the staff members led each group in its study. April 1 was a big day for the department. In addition to presen- ting an assembly program, a four page mimeographed paper called the HEC-0 was produced by the reporters and staff. This paper contained all the "news" that couldn't be printed in the regular publication. 45Laurie De Jong - Andrew Huckfeldt Donald Bong - Sandra Eaton Vernon Thorson - Shirley Kumlien Robert Cramer - Katie JohnsonSandra Anderson - Bill Harriscfe c In the regal tradition that has been followed for thirty-five years. Canton High School students again cele- brated Homecoming in October. Reigning over the two-day festivi- ties were Queen Carol Stensland and Mas- ter of Ceremonies Dick Vander Waerdt. The royal pair and their twelve attend- ents were chosen by the student body in balloting prior to this memorable occa- sion. With a trumpet fanfare the Corona- tion of the Queen and Master was under- way. Assistant principal Robert Perkins Installed the Master. The Queen was in- stalled by Principal Robert Tupper. Bar- bara Haralson, Marilyn Johnson, Connie Clark, and Joyce Neugebauer were members of the "Le Parlsiens" who presented a French can-can as part of the Coronation entertainment. Following the Coronation were a bonfire, pepfest and snake dance led by the cheerleaders. A movie was also shown in the auditorium. Starting off Friday's activities was the assembly, which was held after lunch. Entertainment was again provided. Miss Blue and Gold, assisted by No. 65, Lee Stearns, presented the traditional "lucky pennies" to the coaches and mem- bers of the gridiron squad. Under cold, gray skies the annual parade wound its way through the streets of Canton. Linda Tollefson, head major- ette, led the CHS marching band. "Our Boys Will Shine Tonight" was the slogan on the prize-winning senior class float. Adorning it were Laurie Drake, Marilyn Johnson, Rosemary Sund- strom and Carol Harmon. Enthusiastic spirits prevailed as Queen Carol and her attendents present- ed the game ball to co-captains Denny Hanson and Bob Cramer. "Blue Moon" decorations and the mu- sic of Tommy Grable filled the auditor- um following the C-Hawk victory ovei Vermillion. More than two hundred stu- dents and graduates of 1959 attended one of the most successful dances in recent years. At midnight Homecoming came to an end, but to those who took part in it, the festivities will long be remembered.Piccolo and Flute Sharron Enstrora Eileen Albertsen Jane Ann Dean Carol Lintvedt Dorothy Tuntland Oboe SKirley Kumlien E-Flat Clarinet Janet Suter Bassoon Kay Hoffman Majorette Pat Olson ft B-Flat Clarinet Evelyn Bulley Craig Dean Laurie DeJong Sharon Eaton Dennis Hanson Lorna Ingebrlgtson Larry Johnson Pat Olson Charis Rowe Linda Rust Carol Skattura Faye Thormodsgard Majorette Linda Slesland Alto Clarinet Jean Lier Linda Sweeter Bass Clarinet EInda Toliefson Alto Sax Sandra Anderson Joe deBoer Denise Rikansrud Harriet Stengel Larry Syverud Tenor Sax ju3y Halvorson Head Majorette Linda Tollet'sonDavid Mathison Baritone Sax James Roberts Percussion Dean Albertsen Judy Berg Sandy Eaton Dorothy Hamilton Trombone Margaret Baird Mildred Johnson Kathleen Tupper Judy Williamson French Horn Connie Clark Carol Graverson Jean Sullestad Barbara Sweeter Tuba Don Bogue Richard Oakland Dennis Stubsten Cornet Roderick Anderson Linda Eiesland Nels Ekle Ginger Glenn Linda Hartland Larry Hill Richard Osvog Dennis Swenson Baritone Horn Korma Enstrom Dennis Espeland David Oakland Dick Wegener Mr. Stoeckmann Director Sandy Eaton Secretary-Treasurer Sharron Enstrom Music Librarian Sandy Anderson President Judy Williamson Vice-PresidentFeatured on this page are the instrumental ensembles and soloists who participated in the music contest at Vermillion on February 11.
