Dear Mr. Williams:
Although at times we thought that we would never
last the whole year, and at times our problems seemed
to swallow us, now that our year is completed we know
whom to thank for our endurance and our progress.
Your challenging and stimulating classes have
taught us to think for ourselves as we never have
before, and have given us a chance to realize the
extent of our own possibilities. Through our varied
class discussions we have learned when to express and
when to restrain our individualistic ideas. As a
result we will have an increased sense of confidence
when we take the step beyond the classroom.
Not only have we grown intellectually, but
through your personal example we have,learned how
our characters can grow. Your willingness to realis-
tically face a problem and your never-give-in spirit
in solving it have taught us that all problems are
soluable if treated with common sense instead of
emotion. Your understanding and corrective guidance
have helped carry us through the crises of the year.
For all these things we thank you. The best way
to display this appreciation would not be by a mere
verbal expression, but by applying what you have,
taught us as we go on in life. While we may not have
measured up to the high standards you have set for us,
we have gained an awareness of what our goals should
be. You have given us a solid foundation on which we
can build our lives.
In appreciation of your efforts,

OF THE YEFH?
THE BINGO PARTY
It was a placid Friday night at Fenster Ranch School.
The dorms were calm and tranquil. The,moon cast ro--
mantic shadows on the walks and the school seemed to
be captured by The Hood. The Mood eased its way past
Palo Verde toward the girls' dorm, swept into the rec
hall and transplanted itself in each room. Soon it
was on its merry way again, frolicking toward the boys'
dorm. There, with no discretion, it whirled its way
to La Casita. However, The Mood paused for renewal of
strength and scrutinized the surroundings, It noticed
behind it the now blatant voices of Fenster's students.
The Mood gleefully began its gay pace once again to-
ward its destination, La Casita.
When all had assembled themselves at La Casita, they
realized The Mood was of the gambling spirit and lay-
ing their cards on the table prepared for a prime
evening of Bingo.
Prizes were won by all and Richard Schaub won the grand
prize, which gave him the right to be chief puller in
the taffy pull. It was a wondrous evening enjoyed by
all, thanks to THE MDOD.

THE HALLOWEEN PARTY
Halloween comes but once a year and in our year of 1957
Halloween descended upon us with a great deal of excite-
ment. Suddenly we had in our midst many celebrities of
all kinds and sorts, who were eager to perform, to every-
one's delight. Disguised wonderfully in various array
of costumes and dialects, we rode to Ramon Harland's ranch.
Our driver was so awed with the wondrous transformation
created by clever costuming that we were driven many miles
in the wrong direction with exuberant spirits mounting,be-
fore we finally reached our destined goal for the gala
evening. Thehplace that had been picked for the party,
where we were to eat and drink good things, dance our dances,
and carry out our masquerades, was a secret to all as was
fitting for the mysterious air of a Halloween night. The
bus and cars stopped. Our host was waiting to greet us.
The doors opened and a glittering host of personalities
We had a number of juvenile delinquents with a wonderful
propensity for chewing gum bovinely and divinely following
in the immortal footsteps of Elvis Presley. Madame Butter-
fly and Little-Bo-Peep became fast friends regardless of
the barrier in language. This example of brotherhood was
carried throughout the eve with friendships sprouting he-
tween a Nubian fan waver and an Army sergeant who kept pro-
testing he was really our headmaster, but to no avail. Like-
wise the amenities of the French sailor, who spoke Latin,
and Little Red Riding Hood, who carried not preserves to
Grandma in her heavily lidded basket but a flash camera,
surprised the audience with their flashes of happiness. The
others went to extremes and in good keeping with this didn't
mingle well. There were bohemians, cowhands,doctors,nurses,
and many students mimicking the female populace of the
school with their feminine attire. After amusing ourselves
with othersdcleverness for some time, amid dancing and
other frolic, we had a stage show and after the finale con-
sisting of the parading of the characters before the specta-
tors, chose the best portrayals. The winners were Buddy
Schwartz and Chesley Harding.
The rest of the party was spent in mass confusion. We danced
polkas, we danced waltzes, we danced circle dances, in fact
we danced ourselves into sheer exhaustion with the most
popular dance of all, rock 'n roll. But really, the main
attraction was the green creature sitting complacently
in his 0389, watching everything and everyone with mild
interest and a hint of absolute disconcern. Soon the
witching hour fell over the land. lWe climbed aboard the
various cars and were transported back to our dorms with
the driver much less awed at our outfits. He drove us
to school straight as an arrow. We stepped out of the
vehicles, smiling wearily, holding on to the less sturdy
pieces of our costumes that had been disarrayed at in-
tervals during thegaietybecause of the over-exertion of
frivolous youth in his dancing endeavors. Completely sat-
isfied with ourselves, we settled into sleep, with visions
of the fun dancing in our heads, knowing wel1'that no
Halloween could every surpass the one-we had shared toge-
ther in October 1957 at Fenster Ranch School
n FIRST PLAY OF TH YEAR
Murder at Mrs, Loring's was a dramatic mystery
which was given for us by the Drama Department
in the beginning of the year. It was the tense
story of a murder and the search to find those
guilty of the crime. The lighting of this pro-
duction was the most important factor and it
was carried out so well thatgthe whole produc-
tion took in the desired air that engulfed the '
situation of the plot. '
' Noela Kitchenras the old widow was exceptionally I
good. The acting job she did on this role created
such an emphatic response from the spectators'
that to see her afterwards as the young Noela
Kitchen wasn't believable. The rest of the char-
acters were well presented by Lorraine Croft,
Rowena Wallace, Christine Swenson and Sharon
The looked-forward to feature of Saturday afternoon
is the relentless,,never-ceasing town trip. This is
a voyage into the far from unknown in order to vary
the routine of student life.
It begins after lunch as a multitude of unrecogniz-
ably clean faces in orderly fashion climb aboard the
Fenster Ranch School bus jubilantly grasping the rem-
nants of allowance that they are now going to nblown
for such essentials as sarcastic cards,Elvis Presley
autographed pictures, stuffed animals of various
shapes, sizes and colbrs, handmade costume jewelry
earrings, perfumed ink, Bunsen burners, and ever so
many other articles necessary in the life of a stu-
dent. Once having spent the major part of their
parents' earnings, the female portion of the school
seek out the wandering male portion of the school in
hopes that they haven't been quite as nbargain-wisen
and still have enough of the scarce Umoolahn to take
them to a famous restaurant, better known as Ralis
Grill, for dinner and then to a rendezvous at a local
movie theater. After observing and evaluating this
admirable cinema the obstreperous students return
again to school with renewed strength to begin the
grueling week until the next Saturday at the same time
THE ENGAGEMENT PARTY
One evening, shortly following the Christmas
vacation, a party was given at La Casita for
the newly engaged Miss Rowena Wallace. La
Casita was decorated, hors d'oeurves were pre-
pared and finally after much anticipation the
night arrived. Miss Wallace danced with every-
one and everyone danced with Miss Wallace to
the lulling refrains of UThere's No Boom Boom
inEuccnFlatsU. Soon we had a planned assort-
ment of novelty songs that were sung by all
which were directed to us by an admirer of Tom
Lehr. After the robust voices of the crowd
boomed unbearably, poems were composed by the
students about Rowena and her fiance, and read
aloud by Mr. Williams. 'Many of the student
body dropped in to offer congratulations and
Mr. and Mrs. Fenster stayed for some time mar-
veling at the aptitude for dancing displayed by
Marilyn Cohen and Don and Noela Kitchen. Latin
music was the dominating selection of records
for the evening. This party was appreciated and
enjoyed by all, but, to a much greater degree,
by Rowena, who collected her poems and reread
them continually for the following weeks. Three
of them we've been requested to publish which
you'll find on the next page.

"The Va.1iant"', a one-act play, was presented to the faculty,
student 'body and friends during the fall season under the di-
rection of Miss Smith, the dramatics coach. This play, which
was centered on a convict, was the story of the efforts of
many people to discover his true identity before he was execu-
ted. The main characters were portrayed very convincingly by
the cast. Bruce O'Neil1, 'who portrayed the convict, was es-
pecially good in his performance. His reciting of lines from
Shakespeare as the lights faded on the doomed man was extremely
moving, and he pleased the audience with his interpretation of
this role, which he gave in this, the second dramatic performs
ance of the school year of 1957--58.

THE FLOAT OF LA FIESTA DE LOS VAQUEROS
Once a year in this Western habitat of ours
there is the highlight of the rodeo. The
rodeo and preliminary parade come but once
a year and are the major concerns of all
Tucsonians during their unequaled reign of
four days. Many floats are entered in the
parade and our school float followed the de-
signs of a typical hayride complete with
cheerfully colored costumes and Western sing-
ing. Marilyn CGrossj Grossman was the able
chairman of the float committee with Diane
Leslie, art chairman,vPeggy and David Schroder
were the props committee, Don Kitchen, con-
struction committee chairman,and Noela Kitchen,
'costume director. Chesley Harding served as
hostess in a little reception given for those
that rode in the float. After the morning of
the parade the next three days of the rodeo
are filled with the skills of the Western cow-
boy and wrangler in everything from bronco
busting to roping. It is a colorful event and
just as monumental in a person's experienced
activities as the first bullfight or sea excur-
sion. One sees the real cowboy displayed to
his best advantage, showing all the zest and
recklessness that has made him immortal in our
American history. Four days go by quickly with
the excitement and fervor aroused by the many
competitive events going on all the while at
the rodeo. When it's over each scrapbook is
filled with reminders and we are one up on the
friends nback homeu.
C, Harding -
A picnic is always fun, but in Arizona with the scenic beauty
so near at hand and a clear, cool day, there is nothing quite
so enjoyable. This, combined with enthusiastic students and
lunches, made our picnic a success, in spite of a flat tire.
Among students,and lunches we also had baseball equipment, hik-
ing equipment, which consists ofha strong pair of legs, movies
camera and many brownies. We all traveled in cars to Old
Tucson first, which is the locale for many motion pictures and
where many hours could be spent before one has seen all that he
wishes to see of the old Western town so well kept for sight-.
seers. we stayed here for a short while only because we were
anxious to get on to our picnic ground. After'we arrived, we
ate and played baseball and then began our hike. Each desired
to conquer ardifferentlmountaing so our group split into three
parts and we bagan to climb. Upon reaching the top of our re-
spective peaks, which were in reality large hills, we named
them after one of the more fearless and adventurous members of
the expedition, Having basked in the sun,,staring at plains '
stretched out below us, we took many pictures and then descended
to mingle once again with the less agile students, who were
feeling much stronger. They were indeed, for we discovered to
our horror that all the sandwiches, all the soft drinks, all the
refreshing fruit, had been eaten. Because of this we had mon-
strous appetites that evening We settled quietly into the c s,
- s ' al'
we were quiet for a little while, but soon, as always, our
drivers had a full repetoire of the Top Twenty being sung at
full blast much to their horror and our great delight. After
demanding to be dropped off at an ice-cream parlor, we finally
reached the grounds of the school. We carried our empty lunch
baskets, tired baseball equipment, tired selves, and empty
cameras back to their respective places. The picnic had been
a delightful experience in our annals, and later in the year
the pictures were shown to us in an assembly, which brought
back the memories anew of the fun shared by all.

It was February baseball season. The place was the Fen-
ster Ranch School Baseball Diamond. The purpose was the
training for our first game with S. A. S.
Fenster was up first. The first at bat was Tom DeLong,
who hit a short pop-up and was out. Next up was Tim
Schlitzer, who was thrown out at first. Then Bruce
0'Neill, our captain, went out.
As it came to the eigfhth inning, S. A. S. was miserably
in the lead by 20 to 25 and for the first time it looked
as though we might be able to catch on fire with the
bases loaded and no outs. Then Fenster's star pitcher
hit a high infield fly ball, and the S. A. S. second base
man caught the ball for the first out, tagged second base
for the second out, and fired the ball to third base for
the third out. It was a triple play which knocked us out
of the running. The final score was S..S. S. 22 - Fen-

A peaceful school day and then black foreboding clouds
began to gather. Nothing happened, though, until after
People were dolefully attending period-after-lunch
classes and suddenly there was noise on the roof -
first, light tapping, then finally, loud banging. All
eyes turned toward the windows. It looked like a mir-
In the speech class there was a mad dash out of the
door to see if it was a mirage. Sure enough, there
were huge hailstones falling. They were bouncing off
the ground so that it looked as if they were springing
upfiom the earth. They dashed themselves against the
rooftops and found their way into open windows. Hail
The whole school was in chaos. Snowballs were flying
fast, and some students were even trying to build a
snowman, while the harrassed teachers were trying to
round up their snow-wild students. Less boistrous
scholars were sitting in corners gloating over the
fact that it was snowing in the land where Uthe sun
spends the winter.n
Within an hour there was no trace of the freakish pre-
cipitation except for a few puddles.
That night more than one person went to sleep trying
to figure out whether he had imagined it after all.

A Latin Conquest
The Latin class decided to do something new and different
one day. A contest between the members of the class was
the outcome of much thought on the matter. We dbcided to
see how many derivatives we could use from Latin words in
writing a short story. The results showed us that the study
of Latin had given usla wonderful understanding of the
English language. The same words were used by each person
and'the variety of stories and situations that sprang from
this vocabulary was very impressive. They were so-impress-
ive that two of them are printed for your enjoyment. Each
of the words derived from Latin is underlined for your

by the fiance regime which the Soviets were introancing. The
fugitive hated vehemently each aalute he was forced to make.
And, although he tried to defend himself, he was constantly
under interrogation for an ansolved crime. At this very ng:
ggngahe was watching another fugitive's initiatian into con-

How Easter Started
Ever since the world started man knew that there was a
God. In about 1432 there was a king that ruled Israel.
One bright morning a woman and a man were working in a
field. All of a sudden God told a woman named lhry,
NThou shall have a baby named Jesus.n Jesus grew up and
had many, many good friends. This is how Easter started:
A king put Jesus on a cross and the next day they put
him in a cave. But when the king came, the rock he.had
put over the cave was off and Jesus was not dead. He
sat on the right hand of God.
Dick Barchfield - Grade 3
Science is about nature. Nature is about trees and ani-
mals. Trees have roots and the roots bring up water and
food. Animals get their water and food from other animals
The animals get their water from streams. Nature is not
only about trees and animals but nature is about bushes.
You can make medicine out of herbs.
Billy Miller - Grade 3
THE MIGRANT CAM S
For many miles around Tucson are migrant
camps. These camps are not frequented by
many people, for the conditions that are
predominating among these migrant workers
are those of poverty endured by pathetical-
ly unfortunate men and women. During the
fall, once a week, a bus load of boys and
girls could be seen by the unscrubbed chil-
dren and workewearied adults of this clan.
Descending from the bus, armed with refresh-
ing good humors-and a sincere desire to
help those less fortunate were the students
of The Fenster Ranch School., They played
games with the youngsters and the older teen
agers, and wont the respect of the adults.
After everyone was completely exhausted by
the games and activities they had inspired
in the others, refreshments were served and
good things were shared by all. fThen the
bus would leave with these people thronged
about saying goodbye and anticipating the
time when this great green vehicle would a-
gain transport a little happiness into their
bleak existences once again.
THE VOLLEY BALL GAMES
The girls excelled in volley ball during
its season this year and engaged in com-
petitive games with other schools.
Competing with other teams is always a
good source of spirit and brings forth
more energetic playing than practice with
one's own classmates. The schools with
which we were in competition were Saint
Joseph's Academy and the Valley School for

HAS Time Goes Ryu
I took strip "Around The World In 80 Days" and
I thrilled at ,the sight of "The Blue Danube".
I remember walking through a native village and
meeting a "Witch Doctor". Only 226 Miles Across
The Sean was an airport. I was taking a plane to
Geneva, Switzerland, that day., Upon arrival at
the airport, I saw the stewardesses and noticed
the resemblance of one of them to my dormmate back
at the Fenster Ranch School. I-approached her,
and it was Rowena Wallace. She was chief super-
viser at the airlinesl
During the flight we were able to recall instances
back in 1958. Thoughts ran through my mind con-
cerning the kind of house she had bought in
Virginia Beach. She told me she married her High
School boyfriend, Benny Hewitt, and it was then
that she decided to take her present job.
Time went by quickly, and we landed in Geneva,
Switzerland. we said good-by, each going her
The next morning I looked out the window and saw
a Swiss Chalet on snow-capped mountain. I decided
to be a WHappy Wanderer? and visit the Chalet.
Outside the building I saw Girl Scouts together,
and I realized it was the Girl Scout Chalet. I
remembered my classmate Christine Swenson, who
had been interested in Girl Scouts, and I thought
I would send her a card from here.
I knocked on the door. A small voice answered,
NI Hear You Knockin', But You Can't Come Inn.
The door opened, and a small eight year old girl
was laughing. She thought it was a funny situa-
tion. I asked to see the Scout Executive. -The
little girl took me to the Scout Executive. I
NAS Time Goes Byn Con't.
was speechless at the sight of her. It was my
classmate Christine Swenson. we both were shocked
by the sight of each other. Christine told me how.
much she enjoyed her job and the people she worked
After spending five hours with her I felt guilty,
because I,was never a Girl Scout. With that
thought in mind I bought cookies and cakesvfrom
them, and I went back to my hotel.
The next stop was Portugal. I remembered seeing
those new Portuguese sports cars in France. It
was just what I wanted. I went to the Portu-
guese Mbtors Inc. Building, and decided to buy a
red and green plaid car, the convertible type,
the one which folds up and fits into one's pocket.
Nobody was able to speak English except the Presi-
dent of the firm. Heading toward his office, I saw
a distinguished-looking man surrounded by his pri-
vate secretaries. -It was none other than my old
Chemistry buddy, Mr. Milton Burr. After calming
down from the excitement of seeing each other, we
had some laughs about the violent explosions we
made in-the lab. He said business was good and.he
gave me four cars as a gift, Each car was a diff6'
rent plaid. I folded them up and put them into my
pocket, just like HA Falling Starn.
My mission was complete. I would now hand my boss
the report about the Medical Technologists through-
out the world. I was glad about the raise I was
getting for the cure of antihypersyllabicsesquiped-
alianism. I was happy about the cure for Lukemia,
which I had discovered quite by accident. I de-
cided to have the medicine bottled and put on the
market after I arrived home. I was proud of my name,
Arlyne Moskowitz, Medical Technologist.
NAS Time Goes Byn Con't.
I looked out of the plane window. I saw Niagra
Falls. I could feel the water on my face. I
heard a loud voice say, nyou'11 be late for
classesn. Then she poured more water on my
face. Here I was 'back again, being rudely
awakened by my dormmother, and on my way to
The graduation exercises are over. I've been
congratulated, patted on the back by my father,
kissed by my mother, and thrown many admiring
glances by the younger classmen, who are long-
ing f6r'?he day when they will be the ones in
the black robes. I've thrown away the notes
from my speech and taken off the cap that I'd
taken so much trouble to adjust just a few
hours before. Now I feel the urge to be away
from the people, to wander over the campus I've
walked on during the past and see it once more
and recall memories which soon will be lost
with my youth.
I stand on the field looking at the dormitories,
thinking of many things. My thinking isn't
centered around the school now. It is focused
on the present and what is to come: my college
life, my marriage, and my children. Next fall
I will be walking through new portals that open
a world to me that is different from anything
I've seen or experienced.
I am frightened a little and even surprised that
.I can admit it to myself. I am exuberant with
delight, though, because opportunity is mine. If
only my past has been worthy of it. This is what
I feel a surge of power, for at last I am a
part of the adult world. My opinion will now be
accepted as an adult expression, not the fantasies
of a child. I have looked forward to this day
for at long last-I am a free, independent human
Now I am ready to go back to the scene of this
change.. The noise and frolic have meaning to me
now. I must go back to my parents and wish my
friends good-luck. I must go back and take my
place in the world.
