The Parents Club met under the direction of
Mr. A. Cook to promote better relations between
the Teachers and the parents. By providing re-
freshments at The Christmas Dance, and by con-
tributing floral bouquets for the CREST Coro-
nation and red carnations for the National Honor
Society installation, this organization proved it-
self indispensible to the Ferguson High School

The Student Council is the student governing
body of Ferguson High School. Starting with only
sixteen members in l945, the Student Council
has grown with the school population. Today,
there are sixty-eight representatives and alter-
nates from thirty-three homerooms.
The council and the executive committee meet
on alternate weeks. There are nine standing

President, Anita Riggs, Treasurer.
committees with over one hundred members.
Committee membership is open to the entire stu-
dent body but every representative is required
to be on a committee. Most of the work is done
by the following committees and their chairmen:
Education, Sharon Ploudre, Election, Fred Krieger,
Ethics, Bob Flesch, Civil Defense, Dave Crocker,
Publicity, Joan Burgess, Public Relations, Harry
Barden, Social, Sweet Long, Service, Carol Wil-
liams, and Assemblies, Roger Allen. Officers are:
President, Don Farmer, Vice-President, Bob Flesch,
Secretary, Kay Rugen, and Treasurer, Anita Riggs.
It is the belief of the Student Council sponsors
that the organization serves a distinctive purpose
in a democracy. Since one of the most important
obiectives of the high school is training for demo-
cratic living, it is felt that the students should be
given as many opportunities as possible to parti-
cipate in the democratic processes. This does not
mean that the administration turns over the man-
agement of the school to a group of students.
It does mean, however, that authority is dele-
gated to the extent that student responsibility is
The sponsors of this year's student council
were Miss Smith and Miss Jerzewiak, who have
been working with the students for the better-
ment of Ferguson High School.
The Assembly Committee, with
Roger Allen as chairman, was de-
termined to improve the assembly
programs. The committee sponsored
a successful Christmas Tableau and
Choral program, followed by an
a s s e m b I y during Brotherhood
Week, one for Hobo Day and a
Spring Talent show. They worked
with Mr. McCollum in selecting
programs for next year, and formu-
lated an application blank for all
student sponsored assemblies.

This committee is made up of

ness, good school citizenship, and

The Civil Defense Committee with

plained the operations and care of
an extinguisher. The committee vis-

The purpose of the Ethics Com-
mittee at Ferguson High is to pro-
mote good citizenship and sports-
manship and to establish-a code of
moral conduct for the students of
the high school. With Bob Flesch
as chairman, the committee spon-
sored a sportsmanship campaign in
December, conducted a school pride
campaign in January and near the
end of the year established a Code
of Ethics for the school and sub-
mitted it to the Student Council.

With more stress on "Getting Ac-

the Social Committee started off the
year with a successful dance. Great-
er plans followed in the "Silver
Bells" theme of the Christmas
Dance. Working with a budget,
Sweet Long, chairman, and the
committee succeeded in converting
a drab gym into a breath taking
Christmas Scene. The spring activi-
ties were determined by the results
from a student questionaire.

The Election Committee, under
the leadership of its chairman, Fred
Krieger, has extended its activities
considerably this year. A study of
the past election procedures was
made and methods were suggested
for making elections more demo-
cratic. Special attention was given
to the screening of candidates for
student body officers. In addition
to student council elections, the
committee supervised the election
of senior class officers.

"They do nne wrong who say I come no more
When once I knock and fail To find you ing
For every day I sfand ourside your door
And bid you vvaii, and rise To fignf and win
-Judge Walter Malone
The 1955 season proved To be a disappoinfing
year of rebuilding for The ComeTs. Suffering
Tremendous losses in personnel by graduaTion
of previous sTandouTs, The Team won only one
game, Tied one, and losT seven, ending up in
fourTh place in The conference, The lowesT po-
siTion in four years. The Team was unduly small
and lacked sufficienT experienced hands.
NexT year The siTuaTion should be somewhaT
improved as l8 leTTermen will reTurn, plus added
supporT from players up from an excellenT fresh-
man Team. The highIighT of The season was our
T6-O vicTory over WellsTon as 57 boys saw ac-
Tion. The biggesT disappoinTmenTs were The 7-O
loss To co-champion ClayTon afTer ouTplaying Them
mosT of The game, and our inabiIiTy To score
againsT ST. Charles in a O-O Tie.

Mr. J. C. McPhail, our English exchange teach-
er and former sponsor of an American Cheering
Squad at the Olympic Games succeeded Miss
Regina Jerzewiak as sponsor of the Pep Club
At the first assembly he appealed to the boys
to support the club. On the next school day
three enrolled, and others, including members
of all the football teams, soon followed-a sonor-
ous accession at the varsity matches which fol-
At the usual November dance the theme of
"Lullaby in Birdland" owed much of its success
to the vivid conception and hard work of Mary
Ellen Hatcher and her decorations committee,
but an innovation was the Homecoming, held
for the first time in several years, at which the
team led cheers.
At a further assembly on "Sportsmanship,"
which Mr. McPhail and Bob Flesch addressed in
December to open the basketball and wrestling
seasons, the cheerleaders again appeared in the
uniforms which have been generally voted the
brightest on view this year.
Especially notable has been the help in select-
ing and coaching the Junior High team and their
presence at the Sophomore basketball matches,
including one on a Saturday afternoon when
other attractions were doubtless calling them.
On some occasions they have had to divide to
support games at the same time in different
places. Miss Mathias and Mr. Hoemann have re-
corded their appreciation of these efforts which
have made the year specially memorable.

This has been one of the best years for our
Wrestling team as far as season records and State
Tournament results go. This is the first time the
wrestling team has won a trophy, although they
had previously taken second place in state while
Mr. McCollum was coach.
This year's team consisted of 34 boys, 9 who
were returning lettermen. The season's record
was 8 won, 2 tied, and 3 lost.
The most interesting match was our home
match with Ritenour. The meet was not decided
until the last match. Unfortunately Ferguson lost
by l point.
This year Ferguson placed second in the Mis-
souri State High School Wrestling Tournament,
close behind Ritenour who has won the tourna-
ment for the past 9 years.
Ferguson has improved its place in the Tourna-
ment every year since Mr. Chapman has been
the coach. The boys who placed for Ferguson
in the tournament were Sonny Knibb, who took
first place in the 133 lb. class, Ben Bahora, Don
Klug, and .lirn Heffington who took second place
in their respective weight classes, Paul Kilmer
who took third place, and Tom Burke and Jerry
lsenberg who took fourth.
The team captains were Don Klug, a four year
letterman, and Larry Dennison. Next year Fergu-
son will return 16 lettermen, 7 more than re-
turned this year. Their goal for next year is the
Coach Chapman and our Wrestling team should
be commended for their good work and excel-
lent sportsmanship throughout the wrestling sea-
son. We are looking forward to another oood

The varsity basketball team, who began their
season with five consecutive wins, closed their
season with an overall record of ll victories and
The team consisted of five returning varsity
players, eight members of last year's "B" team,
and one transfer student. This was Coach
Tschannen's 5th year as coach of the varsity
Everyone is very proud of the 2 third place
trophies won in the Suburban League Tourna-
ment and the State Regional.
The team played good ball throughout the
season and showed signs of being a much better
club than their record indicated.

This is the first year Ferguson has had a var-
sity and "B" team with two separate schedules.
The varsity team with a thirteen game schedule
was coached by Mr. Tschannen. The "B" team,
made up entirely ot Freshmen and Sophomores,
was coached by Mr. Koch.
This year's varsity team had only tour re-
turning lettermen and was built around the Jun-
iors. This gives us hopes for a very good sea-
SOFI next yea F.
Practice for pitchers and catchers began im-
mediately after the basketball season ended,
while the full team started a few weeks later.
The team started with a non-league game,
with Riverview Gardens, and came into full
swing with the start of league play on April TO.

On The evening of February l8, 1956, more Than 500 people saT breaihlessly
waiting in a wonderland of hearTs and cupids for The Twenfy-second annual CREST
CoronaTion. As The CREST maids and Their escorTs walked up To The sTage, Carole

school years. Bruce ArmsTead relaTed The high school achievemenTs of The escorTs.

The queen was aTTended by Kay Mills as flower girl and Charles STiarwalT as
The high school orchesTra, under The direcTion of Mr. Plavnick, played The pro-

providing music for The dance which followed, Miss Riggs chose "Funny Valen-
Tine" Tor The TirsT dance, which was exclusively for The queen and her courT.
MISS ANITA RIGGS
Striving to make this, The twenty-fifth anni-
versary CREST, something which will bring back
many pleasant memories of the 1955-1956 school
year at Ferguson High, the CREST staff met sixth
hour every day to publish the best yearbook yet.
The CREST staff started its sales campaign late
in November with an assembly to promote the
sale and to enlighten the students as to the con-
tents and prices of the CREST. This year each
member of the staff took orders for the CREST,

competing with one another to see who could
make the most sales. Ray Miller succeeded in
outselling the members and thereby received his
CREST free of cost.
So that the price of the CREST was kept at a
minimum, members of The staff raised money
for the publication of the book by selling refresh-
ments at thelfootball games, and by sponsoring
the sales ofthe individual pictures, and by spon-
soring the CREST Coronation, which was one of
the social highlights of The school year.
Besides learning the fundamental principles of
iournalism, the SCOOP staff also did an ex-
cellent iob of issuing a bi-monthly news publi-
cation. The SCOOP is a member of the National
Scholastic Press Association and the Missouri
Interscholastic Press Association. The platform
of the SCOOP carries both of these insignias.
Members of the SCOOP staff met sixth hour
everyday and were usually found working fev-
erishly after school on the days before the
SCOOP was scheduled to be issued.
One of the main attractions to the SCOOP was
mimeographed pictures which were featured by
means of the photo-stenciling process. With Mr.
Koch as sponsor and Don Farmer as editor, the
SCOOP staff did an excellent iob of providing
SCOOP readers with interesting items such as
Social Side, Barden's Beat, Mystery Student, edi-

TOYS FOR TOTS
"The Toys for Tots" was or-
ganized this year in the place
of Junior Red Cross. It was
composed of the Library Staff
and Student Council Alternates,
who made collections at school
and in their neighborhoods for
toys to be turned over to the
Marines for repair. These toys
were then given to underprivi-
leged children for Christmas.
A library assistant's day may
begin before school officially
opens when one comes in to put
out newspapers, check over-
night reserves, and prepare the
library for the day's rush. Dur-
ing each hour of the day, there
are at least two students work-
ing in the library so that one may
assume full responsibility if it is
necessary for the other to study.
The assistants' duties vary from
filing, typing, checking over-due
books, collecting book fines, run-
ning errands or helping other
students find desired material.
Mrs. Rippstein and Mrs. Plav-
nick were freed from tedious,
routine office tasks for more
complex ones by the office as-
sistants who volunteered their
time and services. These girls
helped record daily attendance,
took announcements to the class
rooms, answered the telephone,
wrote out excuses, and did in-
numerable other small iobs.
