"Let there be light" was the first command for the forming
of our world. All down through the ages light in its various
forms has been the most important factor in every phase of
human life. N
We, the seniors, have come to understand the need for
the light of learning as the basic fundamental for useful living.
We are grateful to the facultv and administration for helping
us 'to assimilate this light for use in years to come.
It is with this thought in mind that we selected light as the
theme of the l95l SECOMA.
WW iw A
It is with sincere appreciation that we dedicate this annual A
to Mr. Henry L. Thorsett, who has been a light of inspiration
to the class of 195 I.
We have all come to know his democratic ways, good citi-
zenship, and excellent judgment in civic affairs.
We feel that if we can, in any small way, imitate his qualities
and high ideals, we will become good and successful American
' E With these thoughts in mind we dedicate the pages of this
I annual to him.
H A i 'inf QA!
Mr. T. Glenn, affectionately known to the students as "Skipper," died
early on the morning of February 8.
Having been a bus driver at Federal Way for ten years, "Skipper" holds a
place in the hearts of many students. Besides the students who regularly rode
his bus, many others remember this good-natured man as he joined in the fun
while driving a bus to and from games. We will remember Mr. Glenn as a
kind and friendly person.
On january l2, the pupils and alumni of Federal Way lost one of their
finest friends and teachers, Miss Hanny Holmstrom, ,
ln her many years of teaching she gave her pupi-ls. agsurance, confidence
and love. Her reward was observing the development of her many stwudents
into worthy citizens. i
The closing of school on the Monday after her death was a small token of
the appreciation she deserved. As the memory of her is so strong, she will
always linger in our hearts as a part of Federal Way.

Under the expert management of Nliss Grace Fischer, our cafeteria served
delicious, well-balanced meals to approximately 700 students each day.
With the help of 3 cooks, a cashier-bookkeeper and 30 students under
lVliss l7ischer's supervision, the lunch was served to the high school for 20 cents.
A new feature in the cafeteria this year was the soft ice cream machine.
The cafeteria staff is to be congratulated on the excellent job they did this

ln selecting "Light" as a theme for
the I95l edition of Secoma, the class
of '51 has displayed rare foresight.
Light can be thought of in its most
common or physical sense, but to a
thinking person it has a much deeper
implication. From an educational or
spiritual point of view it must be con-
sidered as understanding, as knowl-
edge, as wisdom and as power. All
people and races, great and small, in-
dividually or in groups, mark their suc-
cess and progress in direct proportion
to their fund of wisdom and knowl-
edge. Such a theme could well be
chosen as a guide or aim for the Ameri-
can System of Public Education of
which this school is a part. What better
goal could a graduating class set for
To the present class we offer our
hearty congratulations and best wishes
for a bright future, but we cannot help
but regret that their departure upon
life's journey must come at a time of
such uncertainties, at a time when plans
must be made subject to sudden
changes. We trust the past twelve years
have adequately equipped them to
meet the challenges presented by the
world of today and that their achievements in school will be dwarfed by their
accomplishments of the future.
To them we wish life's fullest measure of happiness and success.
' George Rutherford

Light in general, the absence of darkness, as a theme for this year's Federal
Way Annual gives me an opportunity to dwell on a few subjects which are akin to it.
For example: lighthouses and light ships are used as guide posts for ships at sea,
beacons are used for the airways and traffic signals are used to guide and direct travel
upon the land. These powerful searchlights or illuminations are used as warnings of
shoals and reefs, and as guides to indicate safe channels.
Education is a form of light or mental enlightenment for those who avail them-
selves of the opportunities presented for receiving it.
What you have learned and will continue to learn should serve as the light-
houses, beacons, and traffic signals along your way.
There are still many, many people in the world who do not have mental enlight-
enment, as can be seen in the condition of the world today. There is war, threats of
war, distress, intrigue, despair, poverty, and hunger. There seems to be a scarcity of
good news, bright sports, and encouragement.
Confucius once said that to put the world in good order, the nations must be
put in good order, which means that we must put our families in good order. To put
our families in good order we must cultivate our personal lives. To cultivate our
personal lives we must set our hearts and minds aright, use the light of understand-
ing and knowledge, and keep our eyes upon the guiding lights of what we have
You, graduating students of 1951, will some day be the leaders of commercial,
civic, and public affairs in the coming years. Watch for the guiding lights and remem-
ber that good citizenship is founded in the spirit of tolerance, kindness, good sports-
manship, and of helpfulness to others,

Helping to furnish a guiding light for the students has been the job of

Seeking the guiding light for the student body, the Student Council got
underway soon after the opening of school. The class presidents and repre-
sentatives from the classes and clubs, the student body officers, Mr. Rutherford,
and Mr. Root constituted this governing body. They had a very active year
supervising and providing the necessary help for various athletic and social
functions ofthe school.

The Federal Way 'Sl Beacon of Light shone brightly for the past four years reveal-
ing athletes, artists, musicians, actors, and students.
Leading the seniors in their activities this year were james Lawson, president, Robert
Wehrer, vice-president: Marvis Bauer, secretary: Margie Wishard, treasurer, and Shirley
Nicholson, rep. to the Student Council. Miss Lewis and Mr. Root were their able advisers.
Their two major events were "Spring Fever," the senior play, given on November
l8, and the Senior Ball, which was held during the spring. The class prophecy and will
were read at the senior assembly in May.
Many seniors participated in extra-curricular activities. The Girls' Athletic Associa-
tion, the Future l-lomemakers of America, Lettermen's ,,,,,
Club, Drama Club, Debate, Annual staff, Librarian, .--
Pep Club, Drill Team, and our school paper, the Eagle r,'5'-Eg.,

"An assembly of good fellows meeting under
On May 23, l950, the Girls' Club of Federal Way High School met to
elect officers for the l950- l 951 school year. Those chosen to light the way for
the girls through this year were Mary Anne Samuel, president: Janice Dejar-
dine, vice-president, Ruth Graves, secretaryg Betty Bartleson, treasurer, Joyce
Wisharcl, sergeant-at-arms, and Chirlee Rochester, representative to the Stu-
dent Council. ln October Chirlee, who moved away, was replaced by Dorothy
Mrs. Donegian, the new home economics teacher, was the adviser. Without
her fine co-operation and guidance, it probably would have been much harder
to make the fine accomplishments which the club made this year.
Tolo was the first main project of the year. Preceding tolo was Tolo Week
when all girls wore crazy outfits. This yearis tolo consisted of a cabaret dinner
which was served in the gym. An orchestra furnished dance music in the back-
ground to the beautiful candlelighted tables.
Next on the calendar for the girls was the annual Christmas Tea held
December 20 in the music room. Teachers and mothers of the boys and girls
in high school were invited. With the help of Mrs. Donegian and the Home
Economics Department which furnished the refreshments, the club proved its
ability to organize and present a social function.
With these jobs behind them, the club contributed their share of work in
the all-school carnival. Their responsibility was the bake sale. Members of the
club baked, donated goods, and sold them with the assistance of Mrs. Kenneth
jones and Mrs. Turner Kuhn.

Supervising the splendid work of the P.-T.A. this year were: Mr. Charles Barnard,
presidentg Mrs. Chester Miller, secretary: Mrs. A. C. Davisson, vice-presidentg and Mrs.
A. C. Kreigle, treasurer.
These officers helped in making a success of the many things the Parent-Teacher's
Association has done this year which included the Father and Son Banquet, open
house, a Foundefs Day program, and chaperoning pep dances. The most outstanding
of their achievements was the sponsoring of the annual school carnival.
The Father and Son Banquet held on November l, was one of the highlights of the
year's P.-T.A. program.
Those boys and their fathers who attended had a delicious turkey dinner and all the
trimmings. After dinner was served, they enjoyed the delightful entertainment presented
under the direction of Mrs. Jackson, chairman. The program included singing and
dancing by a group of boys from the Briscoe Memorial School directed by Brother
Quinn, a Sumner barber shop quartet, and prizes given for the youngest son, youngest
father, father with the most boys and the boy with the most freckles. Mr. Frank Wehrer
was master of ceremonies.

Living up to the superior rating, which they won last spring, the Girls'
Glee Club of Federal Way has once more enjoyed a bright season.
The group was composed of forty-four attractive and talented young
ladies. They appeared in smart, trim, blue and white uniforms. These factors
when combined, provided a very pleasant group, not only to see but also to
Only under the able direction and guidance of Mr. Samuel Dunn and the
help of their accompanist, Eddie Englund, have the girls been able to attain
and hold their high standing.
To usher in their musical year, the girls appeared on Campus Radio Theater
over Station KMC in Tacoma. On December 8, l95 l, they added to this fine
performance another success by singing at their annual lVlicl-Winter Fiesta. The
girls performed for exchange assemblies at the P.-T.A., and again for their
school at the Spring Fantasy. A highlight of the year was their entrance into
competition at the Pierce County Music Festival at Fife. The grand climax of
the season for the group was the Western Washington Music Festival at Enum-
claw. To conclude the year the Clee Club sang for Commencement.

Doing their directing work smoothly and efficiently like signal lights, the Boys'
Patrol had an active year.
They were on the job before school, at noon, and after school directing traffic and
assisting students to cross the highway.
The group, under the direction of lVlr. l-lousel, also assisted in the parking of cars at
all the school functions.
Learning to drive a car properly is Very important. lt is a great responsibility, as
the driver is not only accountable for his own safety but also the safety of his passen-
gers and other drivers and pedestrians.
This is the third year driver training has been offered at Federal Way. Teaching the
correct way to operate a car is the main objective of this course. Under Mr. Erickson's
direction, many students learn how to operate a car safely and sanely.

The Federal Way Eagles took third place in the Pierce County League by chalking
up three wins, two losses, and one tie. Allihome games this year were played at night
on our newly-lighted field.
ln a non-conference game the Eagles upset lssaquah 7-0. They started the league
season on home ground by winning over Yelm l3-l2.
On October 20 the Eagles traveled to Peninsula where they lost to the Seahawks
I9-7. The highlight of the game was when Reitan caught a pass and ran fifty yards
to score our only touchdown.
The Eagles went on to win over Orting l9-7. They showed best in running and
Federal Way tangled with Fife under a pouring rain on October 27 for a scoreless
tie. The game was strictly defensive with neither team getting closer than twenty yards
to the goal line.
On November 3 the Eagles set their best defense of the season during the second
half of the game and struck back hard at the Eatonville Cruisers to win 20-6.
The Federal Way squad closed their campaign on home territory November l0,
against Bethel. Although Federal Way lost l4-7, they again showed a good defensive
by holding the Bethel Braves three times when they were near scoring.

Although the Eagles improved greatly at the end of the season, they came
out with sixth place in the league standing.
League play opened with 3 first-string players being ill. The Eatonville
Cruisers topped the Eagle hoopsters with a 56-35 score on December 8.
ln non-conference play Federal Way lost their first game with lssaquah by
a 39-5l score. A week later Federal Way turned tables and beat them by a
margin of ten points, 5 l -4 l .
Both games played with the Fife Trojans were close and proved to be
very exciting to the fans even though the Trojans came out on top.
Two conference victories at Bethel's expense came when the Eagles
defeated the Bethel Braves by 44-43 and 4l-25.
ln the last two years the Federal Way Eagles showed their ability to com-
pete with leaders by hard fighting battles against Eatonville. The most out-
standing game of the season played on the Eagles' home floor was against the
mighty Cruisers. Baffled by a tight defense, Eatonville won only by a five-
point margin, 48-43.
Most of the action was furnished by Spangler, Beebe, Reitan, Benton,
Nelson, and Laird. Spangler and Beebe showed their best by being top scorers
while Reitan, Benton, Laird and Nelson showed their best on defensive play.
The first-string with the exception of Jerry Beebe was graduated this year.
Showing promise in varsity basketball for next year are several members of
the second team. Among those who will produce next year's material are
Houghton, Erickson, Taylor, Figel, B. Beebe, Doxon, and Ronholt.
Showing continued improvement over the previous years, our track team
entered its fourth year. ln the two meets held before this annual went to press,
the Eagles won over Kent and lost to Auburn. They are looking forward to
a successful season. Approximately 25 boys turned out to develop skills and
set new records for the school.
Earl Shaw and Walt Cummings went to the i'State" meet last year and
it is hoped that again this year we may send a couple entries.

With its thirty-three members, the Federal Way High School Band made a striking picture in
snappy blue, white and gold uniforms. Under Mr. Dunn's fine direction, it has become a musical
group of which the school can well be proud.
The band had added color, pep, and song to many football and basketball games before it
began its concert work in December. Playing for the Mid-

When it came to music this year, Federal Way High School students certainly showed their enthu-
siasm along this line. Aside from band, a C-irls' Cxlee Club and several smaller groups, the school had
a chorus of which they were very proud.
So large was this group that it was divided into two parts and each of these sections was given a
separate class period. However, when they performed for an
audience, the group was combined in its entirety-ninety-three 4 A 1'
Their first performance was at the Mid-Winter Fiesta it
December 8. This fine performance was so well received that If "
they were invited to sing for the P.-T.A. Founders' Day pro-
i -' f 'Ht
gram, where they were again a credit to their fne director,
lVlr. Dunn. -
Each year the Federal Way music department is asked to
appear on Campus Radio Theater over Station KIVIO in f i
Tacoma. Usually the group goes to the studio to perform but
this year due to the size of the group the studio came to them.
A transcription was made in the music room at the school and 1.

This year there were office girls for each class period to help Mr. Rutherfords secretary in doing
such things as: collecting attendance slips, taking announcements around, and running errands. They
served faithfully in performing their duties.
Advised by Miss Lewis, the librarians supervised the care of library books and reference
With their help, the way was lighted to find interesting books on subjects which students would
like to read.
Their duties were to check books in and out, prepare new books for the shelves, read the shelves,
keep magazines in order, and prepare a weekly bulletin display.
Their meetings were held after school on Wednesdays.

On November l l, 1950, a bright light was focused on Tolo, the first social
event of the year, sponsored by the Girls' Club. It was held in the beautifully-
decorated school gymnasium.
A Lincoln High Dance Band provided the soft music, while a delicious
dinner was being served. Besides a dance team from a Mildred Alley Studio,
Burl Beckwith, Don Van Volkenburg and Eddie Englund furnished spotlight
entertainment to carry out a cabaret theme.
During Tolo week the Federal Way girls wore many odd costumes and

much guidance from Miss Brasse.
This year the students were given increased responsibility in choosing and
casting the play and designing the set.
