Text from Pages 1 - 72 of the 1959 volume:

C' -1 ,SWK aim Memories, as numerous as the flakes of snow, shall not be trodden under the footsteps of time marching on but shall live in our minds as vividly as yesterday. In the hardships of life ahead, these carefree years at Ellis High School shall be remembered as the best years of our lives. For the student whose life was molded through these years, there will remain an indestructable fondness for these memories. It will always meanto him a time when he was accepted as an individual and given a chance to expand his talents and to form for himself a state of success. ,9"-'L W'-s 1959 Railroader Ellis Ihgh School Ellis, Kansas .+ FUN iw 5--X ' im FACULTY ADVISOR Mrs. Marilyn Wallace- Staff EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Janice Pinney ASSISTANT EDITOR Zelda Colborg BUSINESS MANAGER Dixie Fuller ADVERTISING MANAGER Sharon Henderson ASSISTANTS Carole Baugher Donald Augustine COPY EDITOR Pat Niermberger CIRCULATION MANAGERS Dean Denning Dennis Kinderknecht SPORTS EDITORS Gilbert Brungardt Kenny Haas SOCIETY EDITORS Norman Dreher Carrie Weigel MUSIC EDITOR Steve Wolf PHOTOGRAPHY EDITOR Gary Kroeger ACTIVITIES EDITORS Diana Luea Mary Louise Romey Sondra Smith Carol Weber TYPISTS Rose Mary Rupp Beverly Schumm 2 The Rallroader Sponsored by the Journalism Class Ellis High School Ellis Kansas Table FACULTY . .

I-Iomecoming A Halloween Homecoming was planned tor E.H.S. this year beginning the festivities with a parade at 3 o'c1ock that afternoon, and cllmaxing it with an Ellis Railroader - Hill City Ringneck football game that evening. This Mid-Continent League game proved to be quite a thriller as the Railroaders came through with a 24-7 victory. Riding a horse, and carrying the American Flag, was David Fischer leading a parade of floats made by classes, various school organ- izations, and cars from down-town dealers. The Student Council awarded a first prize of S10 to the Junior Class for displaying the best float. Second prize of S5 went to the Sophomore Class, and a third prize of S3 went to the Junior High. Along with all the other seasonal decorating, the Pep Club white-washed the streets and side- walks with VICTORY slogans. Sponsored By NELSON'S FOOD MARKET MAX THE CLEANER ELLIS FLOWER AND GIFT Her Majesty, Althea Nelson, was crowned by King Joe Riedel, in a pre-game ceremony at 7:45 that evening, announcing for the first time, the queen chosen by the football squad. The attend- ants were: Zelda Colborg and Gilbert Brungardtg Joan Erbert and Kenny Haas. The flower-bearers, chosen by a Student Council committee, were Jimmy Bray, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Bray, and Elonda Renee' Hipkins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Hipkins. The snappy, Orange and Black Band prepared a special program in honor of the queen. The marching 50 formed a heart and played the tra- ditional number, "Let Me Call You Sweetheart." The band provided a special halftime show which was enjoyed by everyone After the game, a Homecoming dance was sponsored by the Junior Class.
