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 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 years seniors.

Again I say . . . vicious circle. Not many people would like to take over the job of having all those problems and making decisions that may influence the lives of everyone within their school district. Our school board is shown above at one of their very frequent meetings.
