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
and women ttutuaC Sta

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-

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-

the concert was given April 8."Class Ring," was
the name of the senior

ed in April. The situa-

the problems of a teen-

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-
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.

ities at the high school.
In the annual ratings given by
the South Dakota High School Press
