The Future Farmers of America is a national organization reaching from the state of Maine to Hawaii
and from the state of Washington to Puerto Rico. It is made up of boys of different nationalities working
together and always keeping in mind this phrase of the F.F. A. Creed: "I believe in the future of farm-
ing with a faith borned not of words but of deeds and achievements won by the present and past genera-
tion of farmers. "
The Electra F. F. A. is just one of many chapters that belongs to this enormous organization. Each
year its members take part in many different leadership contests such as livestock judging, farm skill,
radio broadcasting, and chapter conducting as well as having regular classes in vocational agriculture.
This will help you in later life in any profession.

The might Tigers climaxed the '58 gridiron
season with nine wins and only one loss to their
credit. This excellent record put Electra in the
second place slot in district ratings. The Ben-
gals scored 238 points to their opponents' 58.
In the '55 edition of the "Bengal," the Coach's
Comment was, "Many of the bright stars of the
past season were freshmen and sophomores.
These outstanding boys showed real promise and
someday will blossom forth with ability and
spunk that will give you many victories on the
gridiron." Football fans all over the area have
seen this statement fulfilled for the past two sea-
sons. The boys who were freshmen and sopho-
mores in '55 did blossom forth with ability and
spunk and did give Electra many victories. The
boys who were freshmen in that year are this
