u VU —I1953 a a (e LEYDEN COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL Pran Jtn ParL■ ■■ I■ .—I—. ■—» - Bo O ibeJ tea to e r u i c e i n a r ic a It is with a great deal of pride and gratitude that we dedicate the EAGLE OF 'S3" to the boys in service.These pages are dedicated to your cherished memories of our beloved school principal. J4 e r m a n Vjivi 3 a i; e r Through his efforts Leyden became the outstanding school it is today. Some of his greatest achievements include the Christmas Pageant, the annual summer workshop, the Core program, and the democratic way Leyden is run. To some he was a man of dignity and high ideals; to others he was a man whose face, though usually stern, could brighten the day for a student with a warm, friendly, and radiant smile. What did he mean to you . . . To me Mr. Ylvisaker always seemed the perfect example of a man dedicated to a great cause. He worked with, for, and L ecause of us, the student body. I have always been impressed by his faith in the generations of the young people with whom he came in contact. I will never forget him as a source of inspiration and encouragement and as a sincere friend. The Leyden student body has lost a far-seeing administrator and understanding friend. Never will I forget the way Mr. Ylvisaker smoothed over my embarrassment the day I presented him with a belated invitation to the Junior-Senior Prom. He simply laughed good-naturedly and said he wouldn't miss it this year. At 5:00 one evening Mr. Ylvisaker made a surprise visit to one of our Annual meetings. He asked why we were here so late and we explained. He smiled and said, "I know the Annual will be better than ever." I cannot help thinking of one thing he always said: "As the seniors go, so goes Leyden." I came to Leyden as a sophomore and felt nervous and out of place. At the first assembly Mr. Ylvisaker gave a speech that was so intimate and friendly, I couldn't help but feel at home; I knew I could find a friend in him. After I bought my white buck shoes, Mr. Ylvisaker smiled warmly, and asked me if I were trying to create a new fad. It seemed to me that he rather liked the idea. As he signed the Annual contract. I'll always remember the way he asked me whether or not it was going to be a good yearbook. I showed him the cover design and he seemed very pleased. At the Homecoming gome Mr. Ylvisaker begged me to be careful when twirling my fire baton. He was concerned with my safety and when it was all over he congratulated me and said, "I knew you'd be careful." I cannot accept the fact that he will never again come to the choir room and stand listening, sharing our frustration, our pride in accomplishment, our eagerness to create beauty, our triumphs and failures. He, as a lover of music, realized our problems and limitations, and he seemed to know that his presence there brought encouragement and inspiration. As a sophomore I accidentally set off the fire alarm. I was frightened because I heard that Mr. Ylvisaker threatened to expel the guilty person. However, I decided to confess. When I explained that it was an accident, he was VERY understanding. As a freshman, Mr. Ylvisaker called me into his office and congratulated me on the work I was doing. The following day my parents received a letter complimenting me on my class standing. 7Mr. Steel, who has previously served as assistant superintendent for eight years and is going on his twenty-third year here at Leyden, was appointed superintendent by the Board of Education this year. Our school is fortunate to have a capable man such as he to carry on here at Leyden. To you, Mr. Steel, the faculty and student body give their loyal co-operation and deep respect. 9M mini Idtration Mr. Henry Kennedy: Mr. Kennedy is happy when he is helping others. When he is not hard at work with Student Council, monitors, teaching Social 12, supervising the four-year plan, or lending a helpful hand to a frosh-soph boy, he can be found giving driving lessons to adults. He likes to travel with his family, and enjoys out-of-door life. Singing in the Civic Choir and being quite active in church work takes up much of his spare time. Miss Alice Jones: Listening to girls problems and providing help when she can is the job of our dean of girls. Miss Jones. She looks forward to all the fun she has with her Girls League and is interested in keeping in touch with past graduates. Painting amuses her and she finds concerts and plays relaxing. Her summers are spent in the mountains in Colorado just roughing it. Miss Jones is always happy when she can serve a tasty meal, as she loves to cook. Mr. Jerome Mohrhusen: The three V's—Vim, Vigor and Vitality best describe Mr. Mohrhusen, our junior and senior dean of boys. The "L" Club, Boys' Club, and cross country team seem to keep their sponsor busy. Much of his spare time and interest is donated to the Kiwanis Club and the adult night school here at Leyden. He enjoys tennis, golf, gardening, and most of all his family. Summing up Mr. Mohrhusen, one would say he leads a very active life. Mrs. Nell Will: A friend to all students and parents is Mrs. Will, our specially trained counselor. She spends most of her time helping youngsters, adults, and our community. During her spare time she keeps herself busy with outdoor activities, and doing creative things with her hands, such as sewing. With her wide experience and her intense interest in people we believe Mrs. Will to be an asset to our community. I 8o a r d of d u c a t i o n Our Board of Education is more than a group of five citizens working together, for they represent the progressive, alert school Leyden is today. They are constantly striving to promote better standards and to enhance our educational opportunities.

Our big social event was the Christmas party and many of us saw and participated in our first Homecoming and Pageant.

What has become of all the little freshies green, we said, as we proudly sponsored the—All School Dance—sold hot-dogs at football games, and football pins too, 'till the whole school was "stuck up." "We are the Juniors" was our cry as Rich Miro, Dan Jarka, Joann Nielsen and Liz Killinger helped us through all our headaches of fun. Planning the Turnabout and the Prom at the Medina Country Club gave us new responsibilities. The Washing- of 1953 ton trip and our Junior play, "A Young Man's Fancy," will always be remembered along with our Junior Canteens. Soon we received our class rings and weren't we happy. We helped at graduation hardly realizing that now we were seniors. Three long years we have been waiting, and now we're the seniors. Homecoming came and this year it was our Homecoming with our queen, Arlene Johnson. Jim Murawska, Ron Kiss, Joann Nielsen and Liz Killinger did a fine job sponsoring the all school Bubble Bounce and Senior Snowball.
