This year we should like to pay tribute to a
member of our faculty who has been and will
continue to be an inspiration to the athletic and the
teaching professions. He has been coaching our
football and basketball teams during the past six-
teen years and teaching mathematics in the class-
room, too. He is retiring this year from his coaching
position but will continue to teach mathematics.
Even so, we are going to miss seeing him leading
our teams on to victory.
lt is with great pride and gratitude that we dedi-
cate our l953 annual, the "Troian," to Mr. Bill

Come with me to the luxurious home of Mr. RICHARD RAGAN, president and originator of the Rogan Air-
craft Corporation. The l973 Ragan let plane for private use is causing much excitement. In honor of the new
streamlined model, Mr. Ragan has invited his high school graduating class to dinner. Everyone is very happy to
see all his old cronies. Let's scout around a bit and see how everyone is.
Why look here! If it isn't SANDRA KEIGHTLEY and ARLINE TOLER. They look somewhat different from the way
they did in their high school days, though, because both of these famous lady wrestlers weigh in at about 2lO
pounds. They're doing okay for themselves.
Who is that over by the punch bowl and what in the world is he putting in the punch! Well, wouldn't you
know it, it's the same old JIM TURLEY - hasn't changed a bit. Chatting with him is the very rich Texas rancher,
JOHN TIMMONS. It seems he owns five oil wells and 3,000 head of cattle. Oh! there by the fireplace is Miss
MARION STALDER, the reputed old maid. Up to date she has turned down twenty-one proposals of marriage.
She must have rocks in her head! That beautiful red head talking with Marion seems familiar, but I can't remem-
ber anyone's having that bright red hair in the '53 class. Well, blow me over, it's PAT NELSON!
Some of the boys are married to girls within the class. l.et's see who they are. Why, here's Mr. and Mrs.
TOM MURRAY, Mrs, Murray being the former WINNIE MITTONI l'd never have guessed it. Mr. and Mrs. BOB
COPPOCK are here, too. Mrs. Coppock, or as you know her, RHODA BRITT, is very busy raising little cops. RON
NELSON also picked his bride from this class. Her name, MARY ANN STOVNER.
Over in the far corner LESLEE WARD and MYRNA REED are reminiscing about their'college days. Leslee is
a school teacher and Myrna is a bridge engineer.
That farmer surely doesn't have good manners. He could have changed his boots and overalls at least.
But poor HAROLD PETERS can't take that much time. DON WOODARD turned out to be just what every one ex-
pected, a pro football player. His manager, JACK ROSENOW, is as proud of Don as he can be.
PHYLLIS METHVEN has worked herself way up in the world. She works on the TOP floor at Woolworth's now.
Boy!! CAROL GREGORY has the largest numbers of heirs - twelve in all. But then, she had a head start, and
they're cheaper by the dozen. Up in cold Alaska the former CARLEETA PHELPS is living. By the way, she has lost
her Texas accent 'cause the Eskimos couldn't stand it.
That poor beggar girl at the window looks so hungry. I wish she were part of this class so she could come in.
Well, forever more! lt's ELEANOR YOSHIOKAI
DAVE EMRY is causing quite a commotion around the table. He is giving a preliminary campaign speech for
his nomination to office of governor of Washington. Imagine! Another political prospect is DON SHOOP. He has
gone all the way up to a corporal in the Army. His motto is, "If Ike can, I can."
Talking about the weather are Reverend LeROY TURNER and the heavyweight champ of the world, none
other than JIM LOVELL. Just breaking in on the conversation are EDDIE RIGGS and JoANN CURRIER. Ed and
JoAnn are building a rocket "I I l" in Death Valley. If the rocket succeeds in reaching the moon, they plan to
build summer resorts there.
MARY JOHNSON, the notorious woman gangster, has just been released from prison. DAVID LUND iust got
out of the pen, too, corral, that is.
JOHN LANCASTER, the present day Romeo of the stage and screen, has all the girls swooning over him.
He iust received his fifth divorce and is on the prowl again. HOWARD WISSINGER was splashed all over the
front page today as a result of his daring feat. He got married. The doctor of the class, RICHARD CHESTER-
FIELD, is looking at everyone's throat for throat scratch. . . That's his hobby, besides girls.
Sweet JERRY SWEET has the newly acquired iob of head ianitor of Fife High. He has composed a new song
entitled, "Don't Do Today What You Can Put Off until Tomorrow."
In a dark corner, ED CARDER is eyeing everyone closely. He seems to be estimating their height and width.
I wonder what he does now-a-days? Oh! Oh! He's a coffin maker. Run for your life! ANNA KAELIN, the noted
psychiatrist, has made an amazing discovery: DICK SPENCER's brain is that of a genius. JIM SISKA has taken
up the violin. He will give a concert next week. Millionaire LeROY ELLESTAD has contributed S2.I8 to a home
for soreheaded trackmen, because his old friend RONNIE METTLER is the home's best patron.
MARGERY HOLMQUIST has recently moved into her teepee on the Yakima Indian Reservation since becoming
an honorary member of the tribe. Prospecting for gold in the wet Amazon, GORDON ANDERSON lost his curly
hair. Hopscotch champion, DON GRISH, has forfeited his crown to FRED MEYER for his amazing two-foot lump.
After ten years of work Mr. Sim Phony has finally succeeded in teaching KATHERINE JENSEN her scales on the
oboe. In order to avoid his little session with the draft board, JERRY ALDRIDGE ran off and joined the circus as
head monkey ltrainerl. MARJORIE KELLEY, who is working for the dog pound, and shy little MARDELLE SAVCIKI,
are talking about MardelIe's decision to prolong her engagement iust one more year. The egg omelette a la
Dinosaur was provided by VICTORINE BOITANO, whose favorite pastime is dinosaur egg hunting, MAXINE
COX's world-shaking discovery has caused a big stir. She found out how to grow chlorophyll on trees. GEORGE
LlNDSTROM's cows are now required to eat pasteurized grass in order to get homogenized milk.
Because BILL SPEAR's and JOHN BOHREN's wives didn't have enough to do taking care of their 42 room
apartments, the men set up a sign "Laundry." Education is SHIRLEY EVENSON's field now. She is teaching
economics to kids at Remann Hall. The Beef Association of America has honored NANCY LUTTER with the title of
"Biggest Beef." DICK DUNBAR has lead a very interesting life for the past ten years. He is chief demonstrator
at the Sip 8. Sip Spaghetti Company. Fisherman ALLAN WARREN has learned to tell any kind of a tail. Since
DONNA BRUNER saw a mermaid catch a man in a recent movie, her diet has consisted of seaweed, seashells,
and fish. DIANE SHEPLER's north pole home for crazy Crocodiles is a thriving, expanding business. Bald heads are
the fashion, so GENE BIXBY can't be an exception. Funeral directors RAY WASHAM and MARJORIE McKEEN are
engaged in open warfare against penicillin. All other members of I953 class are married or single, happy or

"Forward . . . Ever! Backward . . . Neverl!" With these four words as our
motto, the Class of '54, under the able guidance of Mr. Frank Gustafson and with
the help of a fine group of officers, attempted many undertakings which constituted
a very successful year.
The first proiect undertaken by this class was sponsoring the concession at the
annual football iamboree. This proved to be a highly successful means of replen-
ishing our treasury. The juniors were also responsible for two outstanding dances
held at the school. We feel that the success of these dances was due to the
enthusiasm of its members.
Another exciting moment for this ambitious class was the arrival of the class
rings called the "Sabre Jet.'i Much discussion went into the selection of our class
rings, but the final selection was approved by everyone.
Last but not least was the unforgettable Junior-Senior Prom held in honor of
the senior class. This is an annual formal occasion sponsored by the iuniors, and
we hope this year's prom will certainly be remembered by all who attended.

The class of '55 had a wonderful fun-filled year under the direction of its
advisor, Mrs. Booth.
They started the year by electing some excellent officers, who filled their offices
well all year. Dave Hall was elected president, August Zampardo, vice president,
Phyllis Petry, secretary, and Dean Crawford, treasurer. Annette Ryan, Judy Fox,
Margie Torre, and Pat Rosenow were chosen to be the sophomore yell leaders.
The class members sponsored two dances during the year. They also took
part in many extra curricular activities, such as F.F.A., the Troianettes, F.H.A., and
Drill Team. Our class was well represented on the gridiron, the basketball court,
and the baseball diamond, in track and in wrestling. Dave Hall, Tom Lelli, Jim
Ragan, and August Zampardo won football letters. Richard Ambuehl, Tom Gilmore,
Dave Hall, Bob Mitton, and Jim Ragan made letters in basketball.
This group of students has a wonderful class and school spirit. Look for them
to go far during their last two years at Fife.

"Have you had your picture taken?" "Oh, I forgot my uniform!" "Who's turn is it next?" These were lust
a few of the expressions heard in the vicinity of the iunior high study hall when the annual pictures were being
taken by Mr. Gustafson. During the two days of picture taking, he spent most of his time behind the black cur-
tain ofthe camera replacing flash bulbs.
At the beginning of the school year a meeting of the student council was held, in which they decided that
this year the magazine subscription drive proceeds would not go towards the annual as before. For the first time
the students themselves are financing the year book entirely.
Under the direction of Eleanor Yoshioka, the editor, and our advisor, Mrs. A. Vinson, the annual slowly
began to take on a form. First a copy, called a "dummy," had to be ruled and laid out, and then pictures and
print copy from newspapers were cut out and fastened onto the "dummy," This was iust the beginning of a series
of steps in the annual making, for next the pictures had to be taken, developed, and then rearranged on a
second "dummy" which was to be the printer's pattern. Then a suitable cover had to be chosen which depicted
the theme of the annual.
This year, as before, a section of the annual has been set aside especially for the iunior high and its activities.
Members of the annual staff for this year were Marilyn Siska, the associate editor, Barbara LaVeille, business
manager, Jack Rosenow, the sports editor for both the iunior and senior high. Leslee Ward was in charge of the
senior write-ups and Sandra Keightley had the senior pictures. The typists for this year were Pat Nelson, Carleeta
Phelps, and Victorine Boitano. Annual reporters this year included Elsie Yotsuuye, Janice Kotchkoe, Katherine
Jensen, Delores Russell, Richard Ragan, Pat Nelson, Loretta Olive, Barbara LaVeille, Ron Mettler, Pat Patton, Dave
Lund, Nancy Lutter, Inez lsaksen, Ron Nelson, Sandra Keightley, Beverly Torgerson, Dick Dunbar, Hideo Watan-
abe, John Bohren, Phyllis Methven, Arline Toler, Mary Johnson, Marilyn Trolson, Winnie Mitton, Barbara Fox, Carol
Jensen, Mariorie McKeen, and Diane Shepler. The staff would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Mr.
Gustafson for all the time and interest that he has given towards the success of the annual.
The Fife High School Band under the direction of Alfred G. Flechtner led a very active year. lt gave its first
concert only one week after school began. This was given at the Western Washington Fair. This program was
then broadcast over KMO.
September 26 the band and the drill team provided a half time program for the Yelm-Fife football game.
The drill team formed the Y and the F while the band played the school songs. The band then ioined the drill team
to form a dollar sign while the band played "Silver and Gold." Then the band made a circle and the drill team
made couples and danced inside while the band played "Dance Me Loose."
The next football game for which the band performed was played on the Eatonville field. We used a series
of formations called "Play lt with Music." The band made a treble clef, a banio, a bugle, and a harp, playing
appropriate music for each one. On October l7, we did the same formations on our own field for the Orting-
On November 5, the band and the choir ioined forces for a radio broadcast over KMO. The program,
"Campus Radio Theatre," is a half hour feature which broadcasts a different school each week. The band was
again heard over this program March l2.
December 5 the Fife Band was honored to be the only band to play for the Pierce County basketball iam-
boree. lt was heard at the basketball games accompanying the drill team when the team marched.
December ll we played before and between acts of the senior class play.
February l8 we made a trip to Peninsula to give an exchange assembly. Soloists Janice Kotchkoe and Mari-
lyn Trolson from the band were featured. March 20 the band took a trip to Vashon for the annual Band Festival.
We made the trip without Johnny Bohren who was the member from our band chosen to play in the all Northwest
High School Band at Bellingham.
The band also marched in the Daffodil Parade on April ll. We then made a trip to Renton on April I8 to
compete in the band contest.
Officers for the year were: president, Bill Spear, vice president, John Bohren, secretary-treasurer, Janice
Kotchkoe, historian, Marilyn Trolson, uniform manager, Katherine Jensen, assistant uniform manager, Kathrina

The Fife choir under the direction of Mr. Alfred G. Flechtner has been very complete and successful. The fifty
voice choir has been in many programs this year.
The events started when the choir sang at Milton for the P.-T.A. There the selections of music were classical
and semi-popular. Next was the Campus Radio Theatre over KMO. They selected the numbers "Battle Hymn
of the Republic" and "Gospel Train."
The Christmas program is the biggest event of the year. This year we sang "T'was the Night before
Christmas," a Fred Waring arrangement, "O Holy Night," and other Christmas carols. During the program there
was a pantomime of the "Christ Child." Margie Kelley was Mary, Stewart Carder, Jim Ragan, Jim Lovell were the
three kings. Dick Spencer, Carl Stalder, and Fred Meyer were the shepherds. Donna Bruner was the narrator.
The program was a success.
December 23, i952 the choir made a trip to the Bon Marche. There they sang selected Christmas carols
throughout the store.
February I8, the boys' choir and the band gave an exchange assembly to Peninsula. The boys have just
started their choir. The group consists of fourteen boys from the senior choir. This year we have four boy members
from the eighth grade who sing tenor in the choir. They are Monty Fox, Carl Bullo, Roger Dutton, and Tom
The boys gave a successful performance at Peninsula. The main dress of the boys is ieans, cowboy hats,
and shirts. We hope they will carry this out next year and become more well known. The song they sang at Penin-
sula was "Cool Water."
On March 6, l953, the Fife choir held its annual spring concert. They sang "The Creation," "Lonesome Val-
ley," "Stay Traveler," and several religious pieces. Another program was the Western Washington Choral and
Orchestra Competition Festival at Bremerton. One of the selections for this program was "Motet," a religious
song. The choir has done quite a number of religious and classical pieces.
The final program was the annual Choir Festival at Bethel. Every year the choir goes to this festival and
gives a concert in the evening.
This year's student council was headed by the
president, Richard Ragan, with the fine help of the
other officers: vice-president, John Bohren: secre-
tary, Barbara Fox: treasurer, Phyllis Methven: his-
torian, Mary Johnson, business manager, Dick
Dunbar, and publicity manager, Katherine Jensen.
Mr. Hall was our advisor. Roll room representatives
were elected to round out the counciI's membership.
The main work of the student council was to figure
ways and means of making money for extra-curricu-
lar activities. The principal activities of this year
included a get-together dance in the,early fall, a
Christmas Ball, May Day exercises, various mixers,
and a magazine drive.

The Torch Honor Society is a national organiza-
tion composed of high school students who achieve
and maintain a high scholastic record. Membership
in Torch Club is given on the basis of grade points.
The club began the new year by holding a pot-
luck dinner for the twelve new members. They also
helped to reorganize the Flame Club, which is a
scholastic club for junior high students. At the close
of the school year, the club held another dinner in
honor of the graduating seniors. At this time the
seniors were presented with their Torch pins.
This is an honor club rather than an active one,

The Troianettes is a girls' service club supervised
by a faculty advisor, Miss Agnes Dunn, and their
student advisor, Eleanor Yoshioka. Under this lead-
ership they have spent a fine year.
Each year ten girls are selected from the
freshman class to become active members of the
club during their sophomore and iunior years. The
girls are chosen onthe basis of dependability, schol-
arship, initiative, and ability to co-operate with
others. The new members this year were: Marilyn
Trolson, Sharon Figg, Phyllis Petry, Janice Kotchkoe,
Annette Ryan, Margie Torre, Ruth Ambuehl, Ann
Rivenes, Le Etta Kamenzind, and Christine Falaschi.
Being invited to become a member of the Tro-
ianettes is one of the Fife girls' highest honors.
This year the Troian Knights, guided by their
president, Harold Peters, welcomed the new mem-
bers by honoring them at a dinner. This delicious
dinner inncluded crab cocktail, baked ham, and all
the trimmings and was topped with delicious apple
The new members who were thus introduced into
the organization are Joe Door, Tom Lelli, Larry
Larson, Cho Shimizu, Dave Hall, and August Zam-
The Troian Knights are the boys' service organi-
zation at Fife. Their main duties are helping at
football and at basketball games, preparing the
gym for assemblies, and taking noon hour hall duty.
The year is topped off with an annual Troian

F. H. A.
The Fife Chapter of the F.H.A. got off to a good start as they welcomed Mrs. Ellen Scheyer as their new
advisor this year.
We had the honor of having a state officer elected from our chapter: Elsie Yotsuuye, state treasurer.
Our year's first activity was a get-together banquet, to which everyone was invited. Later, the girls interested
in F.H.A. and having enough points for membership were initiated at a formal initiation.
Following this, the new members had an excellent opportunity to learn more about F.H.A. at the regional meet-
ing held at Battleground, Washington. At this meeting they learned ways to keep the meetings interesting and
ideas for money-making. Among our money-making activities was a caramel apple sale. Here we mixed business
with pleasure by having a party on the order of a taffy-pull. We substituted caramel apples for the taffy and
with everyone's ioining in making the apples we enioyed ourselves immensely while we worked.
On our social agenda was the Harvest Ball which was a big success with Gordon Anderson and Elsie Yotsuuye
as the harvest king and queen, respectively. Another was the F.H.A.-F.F.A. party. Our last event for this year
was the Senior Tea, at which the next year's officers were announced.
Officers for this year were: president, Margery Holmquist, vice president, Elsie Yotsuuye, secretary, Janice
Kotchkoe, treasurer, Beverly Torgerson, social chairman, Patricia Patton, membership chairman, Barbara Marzano,
historian, Ruth Ambuehl, reporter, Jeanne Petorak, points chairman, Phyllis Soltis, parliamentarian, Linda Chestnut.

F. F. A.
The past year has been a lively one for our president, Ed Carder, and the members of F.F.A. As soon as
school let out last spring, a group of boys, Mr. Olmstead, and Mr. Johnson went on the club's annual camping trip.
It was at Lena Lake in the Olympics. After a good hard hike lmile and a halfl, a grand old time was had by all.
The boys weathered it pretty well considering that they had to eat their own cooking.
We placed second with our booth at the Puyallup Western Washington Fair last fall. This brought us a blue
ribbon and Sl75.00, a welcome addition to our funds.
The iudging team brought us a first in the Ayrshires and a second in the Holsteins from the Portland Inter-
national Livestock Show. The team members were Ed Carder, Loren Chinn, and John Timmons. The team which
judged at Skagit County brought us a first in the Holsteins and second in Sweepstakes. The team members were
Ed Carder, Dave Lund, and Loren Chinn.
The annual turkey raffle this year was a big success. Approximately T400 tickets were sold and I4 turkeys
were given away. Richard Delin was high again this year with 321 tickets sold. Bob Suss was second with 250.
Last year our chapter had two state farmers: Norman Heilig and Dave Lund.
ln August the chapter got a new Ferguson 30 tractor and a six-toot tandem disc.
Our Parent and Son Banquet was held during National Future Farmer Week in the gymnasium.
This year the chapter started a hog rotation project. Three gilts were awarded to Dave Bornander, Richard
Delin, and Ellsworth Finlayson.

The first meeting of the Fife High School Girls' Club was highlighted by a very interesting talk by one of our
faculty members, Mrs. Vinson, who talked about her exciting trip to Alaska. She also brought along some very
good pictures of the trip, which we all enjoyed seeing.
The part of our motto which reads, "to help those who are less fortunate than l," was put to good use at
Thanksgiving time. Four families enioyed delicious 'dinners as a result of the Girls' Club work. Thanks also go to
the grade school and to the Boys' Club, who contributed a good deal of food.
ln one meeting the advantages of a military career were explained by three representativs of the Armed
The Easter egg hunt for the members of the kindergarten proved interesting for both the kindergarten and
the girls who assisted in coloring and hiding the eggs.
The finale of the i952-53 year was the Mothers' and Daughters' Tea. Leslee Ward, as general chairman,
helped to make this a very successful tea. The theme chosen was "April in Paris." Story-book dolls were used as
centerpieces on the tables, and the invitations were made in the shape of a story book doll. The little girl wore
a bonnet with a big bow on it. The tea was started with the processional and installation of officers, after that
there was varied entertainment bythe girls themselves. Some of the home economics girls, parading as Paris
models, modeled some of their very nicely made clothes.
To raise money for the varied activities mentioned, the Girls' Club sponsored the concessions at a football
game. At Christmas time a bake sale was held at the Bon Marche in Tacoma, also some girls made Christmas
centerpieces to sell. After a basketball game, a dance in the gym brought in more money.
Each class decided to do something to increase the treasury. The iunior and the senior girls had a bake
sale, and the sophomores decided to sell candy and popcorn at a basketball game.
The officers for the year were as follows: president, Nancy Lutter, vice president, Joyce Pedersen, recording
secretary, Inez lsaksen, corresponding secretary, Barbara Fox, treasurer, Marilyn Siska, historian, Marsha Gord-
on, and Girls' Club council representative, Sandra Keightley.
We want to thank our advisor, Miss Dunn, very much for all the advice and help she has given us.

Another successful year has been completed for
the Girls' Athletic Association under the supervision
of our club advisor, Mrs. Anderson. Two hundred
fifty points have been earned by each girl to enable
her to become a memberi By participating in sev-
eral organized sports, usually after school, the girls
have earned their points.
This group has had several activities during the
year. ln the fall the traditional Sadie Hawkins
Dance was held. On February ninth, thirteen new
members were initiated into the club. This proved
to be very amusing as each girl dressed as a fic-
tional character. The year was completed with the
election of new officers.
At the end of the l95l-52 school year, the
Lettermen's Club elected officers for the present
year: Ron Mettler, presidnt, Ron Nelson, vice presi-
dentg and Howard Wissinger, secretary.
Any boy who participates and earns a letter
in a maior sport is eligible to ioin the club.
Since it is an honorary club, there are not so
many activities as some of the other organizations
have. The chief duty of the club is to elect an in-
spirational award winner. He is chosen for what
he has contributed to sports, for his leadership
abilities, his personal habits, and his faithfulness in
attending turnouts and following the general train-
ing rules. Last year's choice was Dwayne Proff.

This year's first appearance of the Laodamians
was made at the Yelm-Fife football game on Octo-
ber I7, when we combined forces with the band
to make many formations. We marched at one
other football game and five basketball games.
Last we marched for the Daffodil Parade, April Il.
Our annual tolo was carried out to the theme of
"Dancing in the Dark." Another annual social
event, initiated last year for the first time, is the
banquet given at the end of the year honoring the
Our officers for this year were Shirley Evenson,
president, Marion Stalder, vice president, Barbara
Fox, secretary-treasurer, Sandra Keightley, drill cap-
tain, and Phyllis Methven, manager.
One of the most active girls' organizations at Fife
is our after-school sports. Under the guidance of
our advisor, Mrs. Anderson, the girls had another
exciting year of turn-out.
Volleyball, the first sport on the agenda, started
in October. Eight team captains were elected the
first of October, each choosing her own teams.
When December rolled around, the girls were eager
to start a new season of basketball. Basketball
went off very well, with Team Six winning the
championship. Baseball was a very muddy sport
but everyone had fun.
Two years or 500 points in girls' sports earns a
minor, and three years or 750 points earns a maior
toward a plaque.

llYou Can't Take It With You"
The senior class play was presented by a cast of seventeen members on December ll, l952. The play was
a three-act comedy entitled "You Can't Take lt with You." '
The action took place in the living room of the Vanderhof home where a person could find anything from a
snake aquarium to a printing press. Among the other uses for this room was the practicing of ballet steps, eating
of meals, writing of plays, and iust living in the fullest sense of the word.
At the head of the house was Mr. Martin Vanderhof, or grandpa as he was better known, played by Dave
Emry. He was a business man who lust quit business one day to get a little enioyment out of life. Presiding over
the house, collecting snakes, and going to commencements were his favorite pastimes. Then there was Penelope
Sycamore, better known as Penny, lKatherine Jensenl the playwright. Shegstarted writing plays one day because
a typewriter was delivered to the house by mistake. Her husband, Paul Sycamore lRichard Raganl, manufactured
fireworks in the basement during his spare time and sold them on the Fourth of July. Gordon Anderson played
the part of Mr. DePinna, the general handyman and brain of the fireworks department in the basement. If you are
wondering how Mr. DePinna was added to the family, it seems that he came to deliver ice one day and iust
stayed. The two colored servants, Mardelle Savicki as Rheba and Dick Dunbar as Donald, were also chief fly
catchers for the snakes. Essie Carmichael lGeorgia Lindstroml took dancing lessons from her instructor Boris Ko-
lenkhov lJim Turleyl while in the other corner Ed Carmichael Uohnny Bohrenl was printing. The Duchess of
Russia lRhoda Brittl also paid a visit. An Internal Revenue man, Henderson by name lLeroy Ellestadl, almost fell
into the snakes accidentally. To add to the commotion, the police lHoward Wissinger and Leroy Ellestadl were
aroused on several occasions. Penny brought home a drunk playwright, Miss Wellington lMarion Stalderl, that
she found on a bus.
When the play drew to a close, Alice Sycamore lPat Nelsonl was getting married to Tony Kirby lBilI Spearl,
the son of a well-to-do business man, Mr. Kirby, and his wife lEd Carder and Victorine Boitanol.
Mr. Wickstrom served as director for the play, and Eleanor Yoshioka and Shirley Evenson were student

The audio-visual department has added two
pieces of new equipment this year. They are a new
Webcor tape recorder and a Standard slide-proiec-
tor and filmstrip machine. The new equipment has
proved to be very useful.
The projectionists' main duty is to show education
films to the grade school, junior high school, and
the senior high school classes. These films aid the
teachers in instructing their students.
Beside operating the projectors, the public ad-
dress system is also under the supervision of the
The projectionists are soon to be affiliated with
the Projectors' Club of America. Examinations are
to be given to each operator to test his ability and
knowledge of projecting.
This year's operations have been under the direc-
tion of Mr. Frank Gustafson as have those of the
past three years.
Despite our tattered and obsolete shop, many
attractive and useful projects have been completed
this year under the capable supervision of our shop
instructor, Mr. Scheyer.
The first year students learned the fundamentals
of shop and how to use the smaller power tools.
Some of these are the sander, jig saw, lathe and
small circular saw. The students made several minor
projects such as broom holders, book ends, and
small end tables.
The more advanced students, however, built many
types of bowls, coffee tables, lamps, dresser sets,
cedar chests, and desks. At the time of this writing
a boat was also under construction.
The students in stage crew, which is one of the
more popular shop classes, did many repair jobs
around school. Their main task this year was the
construction of the setting for the senior class play,
which was staged in December.

Senior High Football
After a few weeks of hard practice the Fife Troians took the field in the seventh annual iamboree against
the Peninsula Seagulls. In this quarter of a game, the score was Peninsula 6, Fife O. However, later in the season,
Fife avenged this defeat.
One week after the iamboree, the fellows were awaiting most anxiously their trip to Port Townsend. lt marked
the first overnight trip Fife has taken in quite a few years. The end of the trip wasn't too pleasant. Fife came
out on the short end of the score 34-13. Port Townsend had a pretty fair club, good enough to stay high-up in
the all-state class B rankings.
In the last week in September, the Troians opened their league play against Yelm. Led by Dick Spencer and
Ron Mettler, the Troians hopped over the Tornadoes 35-0. '
After Yelm came Peninsula. Fife was determined to defeat this club and they did 13-7. This happened to be
Peninsula's homecoming game and that was our present. Ron Mettler again played a good game. He made a
nice 85-yard touchdown iaunt on an off tackle play to score the winning touchdown.
Next came the Eatonville game. Fife felt pretty good sporting a 2-O league record. At the end of the first
half the score was 12-0 in Fife's favor. However, never underestimate the other team. In the second half the
Cruisers came flying back to win the game 20-12.
Now came the leading team, the Orting Cardinals. Orting had a fine runner and passer in Boyd Wilkins.
The Cards beat Fife 26-12 in a close game.
After this setback Fife met the Bethel Braves. Bethel, the pre-season favorite since it was the defending
champ, had started the year in hard fashion with no wins and no losses, but three ties. The Braves, led by Dar-
rell Borden, a hard running back, defeated the Trojans in a hard fought contest 13-7.
Then came Vashon. Fife was heavily favored since Vashon had yet to win a game. lt was a nip-and tuck
contest all the way. The Troians led by one touchdown at halftime. The Vashon team made up their minds that
they were going to win, and they came out in front 18-14.
Fife played its last league game at Federal Way. The Eagles had never beaten a Fife team, but that couldn't
last forever and this was the year. Federal Way defeated the Troians 40-O.
The last game of the year for the Troians was the one at Lakeside. The Lakeside team were their league
champions. ln this game Lakeside played like champions and came out the victor 26-14.
This ended Fife's schedule. Those seniors who are graduating are: Ron Mettler, Dick Spencer, Ron Nelson,
Howard Wissinger, Dick Chesterfield, Jack Rosenow, Jerry Aldridge, Gene Bixby, Ed Carder, John Bohren, Bill
Spear, and LeRoy Turner. Dick Spencer received the Spear-Robbins Inspirational Trophy.

Senior High Basketball
The 1952-53 basketball season started with the Pierce County Jamboree at P.L.C. Fife picked Yelm in the
Jamboree but came out defeated.
The first game found Fife playing host to Tahoma in a non-conference game. It was close but Tahoma fin-
ished on top, 39-36. Fife later avenged this defeat by defeating Tahoma at Tahoma 46-42.
The next game found Yelm here. The Tornadoes stopped Fife by a 48-40 score. Later at Yelm, the Tornadoes
again beat Fife 55-45.
A determined Fife squad traveled to Vashon the following week, and defeated the Pirates 53-34. The next
game was a non-conference game with Foster at Fife. Foster was defeated by our Troians 45-41. But the Foster-
ites turned the tables the next game at Foster as they won 40-35.
Next came the Eatonville game. The Cruisers of Eatonville were rated high in the league as they were the
defending champions. The Troians iourneyed up to Cruiserville and a rough and tumble game was played. Eat-
onville came up the victor, 41-34.
The next game was played at Fife against Orting. The Cardinals played fast rugged ball and came out the
winning team 48-35. The game between these two teams that was played later at Orting was very close. With
only 15 seconds to go, Orting sunk two free throws to give them the winning margin, 35-33.
The following game found Fife pitted against Bethel. The Braves, who had looked lousy in the Jamboree,
had been brought a long way. They defeated Fife on the Bethel floor, 52-33. The game these two teams later
played at Fife was won by Bethel, 60-58. This close game followed the loss to Orting, so twice within a week
Fife lost by 2 points.
The next set of games came against Peninsula and Federal Way. Fife lost the Peninsula game but defeated
the Eagles of Federal Way 55-43.
On January 23, Fife again played Vashon and again defeated them, this time by the score of 56-43.
The next game was against Eatonville which the Cruisers won 59-38.
After another loss to Peninsula 169-501 over on the land of seagulls, the Troians iourneyed to Lakeside.
The iourney ended victoriously, as Fife came out the better team 65-48.
Then came the league game between Fife and Federal Way at Fife. ln the overtime affair, Federal Way
came out the better team 54-52. lt was a close hard fought game all the way.
Yelm won the league title with 12 wins, 2 losses. Fife had a league record of 3 wins and 11 losses and an
overall record of 6 wins and 14 losses.

Baseball i952 Track i952
Fife, the defending Pierce county league champ-
ions, took to the baseball diamond on April 8
against the Orting Cardinals. The game was close
all the way with Orting the victor, l-0.
The following week our Troians had a new
experience when they played Eatonville under the
lights at Eatonville. Eatonville pitcher, Mickey Mor-
row, allowed us only four hits as his team bettered
The next game that came was Bethel. Fife was
high in revenge as they had a 0-2 league record,
and wanted this game badly. Bob Kern pitched a
swell one hitter as the Troians trounced the Braves
The next game was with Federal Way. The year
before .Fife had defeated Federal Way 5-4 in 12
innings and 3-2 in the playoff game. This was a
good game until the later innings, final score:
Federal Way lO, Fife 3.
On May 20, Fife journeyed to the land across
the narrows to play Peninsula. Fife started out in
fine fashion, but a 13-run outburst by Peninsula in
the sixth inning- led them to a 19-6 whalloping over
The last game was here against Yelm. lt was
scheduled for an earlier date but had been rained
out. Fife came out the better team with a decisive
6-0 victory. The Troians' final league record was:
won 2, lost 4.
Early in the spring, the Trojans took to the out-
of-doors. You guessed it, track season started. With
a few freshmen and many iuniors and seniors, the
Troians went all out to retain their Pierce county
The Troians' first meet in i952 was against Bell-
armine. Being behind in the first few events en-
couraged the Troians as they swept past Bellarmine
57-49. The point system used was 5 for lst, 3 for
2nd, and l for 3rd place.
The following week Fife was host to a four
team meet. Those meeting were Eatonville, Seattle
Prep, North Kitsap, and, of course, Fife. North
Kitsap won with 52 lf3 points. Fife was being
pressed, but not surpassed, by Seattle Prep for
second. Fife 37, Seattle Prep 36 2f3, and Eaton-
ville 24 5f6 were the results.
The third meeting in i952 was between Penin-
sula, Eatonville, and Fife. Eatonville won 81 to 65
to 5 for Peninsula.
Next came the Pierce County Track and Field
Meet. Those teams competing were Peninsula, Eat-
onville, Federal Way, and Fife - Eatonville 60, Fife
55 2,f3, Federal Way 33 l,f3, and Peninsula 2.
Next came the meet to determine this district's
representation in the sub-district meet at Bothel.
Ellestad and Mettler were the qualifiers from Fife.
Mettler went on to take second in the state 440.

' Wrestling T953
The Fife High Trojans took to the courts in early
spring against Bellarmine. The Lions from Tacoma
easily defeated Fife.
In the weeks to follow, Fife played Puyallup.
Kotchkoe won the girls' singles. Then with the
score tied, one game apiece, Kelley and Torgerson
won the girls' doubles, but Puyallup went on to win
3 games to 2.
The third game of the season found Bethel here.
Again Kotchkoe won, but Bethel finished the victor,
4 games to l.
The next week the team iourneyed to Eatonville.
Fife won both the girls' singles and doubles but lost
by a 3-2 score.
The next game was against Peninsula across the
Sound. The Seagulls of Peninsula beat Fife 4 games
The last game of the year found Yelm here.
Kotchkoe won the girls' singles 6-O and 6-2. This
victory enabled her to end the season undefeated.
The boys' singles, doubles, and mixed doubles were
won by Yelm.
Returning members of Coach Gustafson's team
are Kelley, Torgerson, Clark, Crawford and Kotch-
koe. The early spring weather this year has made
the courts inviting to plenty of tennis work-outs
well before time for the new season to begin, thus
conditioning players for a good tennis team for '53.
The Fife wrestling team led by eight returning
lettermen opened the wrestling season against Sta-
dium. The match was close but Stadium won. Lelli,
Finlayson, and Plumb were the winners for Fife.
ln every match this year, Fife had to wrestle with
a l0-point handicap since it had no real heavy men.
The next match sent Fife to Lincoln. The Lynx
defeated Fife in a hard fought match. The winners
for Fife were Weaver and Plumb.
In a return bout with Stadium at Fife, the Troians
had to forfeit four matches and thus could never
overcome the difference. The winners for Fife were
Leonard Lightburne and Plumb.
The first Fife victim was Everett. Besides forfeiting
two matches, Fife went ahead and won 32-l3. Only
one match was lost.
Next to fall before our wrestlers was Longview,
by the slim margin of 22-2l. Winners of the Long-
view match were Frith, L. Lightburne, Weaver, Lelli,
Finlayson, and Plumb.
The last match of the season found Lincoln here.
Lincoln again defeated Fife with the Troians forfeit-
ing three matches.
After the wrestling season came the state tourna-
ment at Pullman. ln team scoring Fife finished third
behind Mount Vernon and Lincoln. Finlayson won
the l38-pound class and Plumb took second prize
in the l65-pound class.

The freshman class of l956, began the year with eighty-six members and Mr. Hatley
as their advisor. They came from Fife, Milton, and Edgewood. At their first class meeting
they elected their class officers for the year. They were: president, Gary Johnson, vice
president, Lois Larsen, secretary, Karen Yoshioka: treasurer, Spencer Nordfors, sergeant
at arms, Agnes Brydon, and business and publicity manager, Connie Ellsworth. At their first
roll room meetings, they elected their roll room representatives to the student council.
They were as follows: from Mr. Hatley's roll room Connie Ellsworth, from Mrs. Anderson's
roll room Lois Jensen, and from Mr. Vinson s roll room Dick Rivenes. At their second class
meeting they chose their class motto: "Knowledge of the Past ls the Key to the Future."
They also chose their class colors, red and white, and their class flowers, red and white
making proiects they sold concessions during the football season at the
A - .

G'-'Iwi-ze-. fwfr- r . -ie
Fife-Sumner game. Their concessions were a great success and added quite a bit to their
treasury. During the basketball season, after the Fife-Yelm game, the class sponsored a
dance, which was a huge success with a large group of students attending.
All in all this class has been active in sports, in school life, and in class work. They
have had a lot of fun in iunior high, but are looking forward to being in senior high next
May all of their future years be as successful as this one has been!

The eighth grades this year were advised by Mr. Norby and Mr. Wick-
strom, who were of great help to the students. The classes selected officers
,, from each class to serve one semester only, then they chose another group
to serve the second semester.
. 1 The two classes held parties on special occasions including Hallowe'en,
Z Christmas, and Valentine's Day. This year they have added many members
,-:r' to the Flame Club, which is an honor society. Each year they take an after-
noon off to have a special picnic.
To earn money they organized a club called "Little Wickies." In this
club they made suggestions on how to raise money. Two of these suggestions
proved very successful. They auctioned off a variety of articles and held a
Y I candy sale.
A special committee decorated for each holiday and each month drew
J r y artistic scenes on a calendar to add color to the classrooms.
A new service club was started this year and the members serve as
monitors to check the student habits during school.
K We yi r
1: s ls f As a whole group, the eighth grades have done very outstanding work
to make their classes a success.

Junior High Football
The 1952 iunior high football team completed the season with a record of two wins and five losses This
year's team, with only three returning lettermen, showed great promise as the year progressed
Many of this year's squad demonstrated they will give a good account of themselves as high school gridmen
Outstanding personalities on the team were Rivenes, Rader, and Stipes in the line while Nordfors Johnson
Otis, Rowe, and Scott shouldered the burden in the back field.
"Orchids" to Gary Scott and Dick Rivenes, the only two players in this year's squad to have played three
years of iunior high football. Both boys have been an inspiration to iunior high athletes
Twenty-seven boys from the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades turned out this year showing a marked in
crease over last year. With nine boys returning and the addition of many younger boys the prospects for fifty
three look much brighter.

Junior High Basketball
This year's team with only one returning letterman and a few returning midgets, embarked on what was
to become a better than average season.
After two set backs at the hands of Kent-Meridian, the '52-'53 team rolled into high gear, winning six
straight league encounters before losing a close non-league decision to Eatonville, 30-29, and then losing two
successive league games to Franklin Pierce and to Bethel.
The team showed a league record of 8 wins as against 2 defeats and a share in the league championship.
Warren, Rivenes, Scott, Nordfors, Plumb, Buchanan, Rowe, Johnson, and Gilmore showed great promise for
high school basketball.
The seventh and eighth grade team paced by Murray, Fox, Rowe, Stump, Docken, and Cavin displayed signs
of providing the iunior high with much talent for the '53-'54 season. Their record was 5 wins as against 5 losses.
Their outstanding performance was their win over a strong eighth grade quintet from Kent-Meridian.

Junior High Baseball
The Fife Junior High baseball team, made up of a maiority of freshmen, played only four games this year and
were victorious in two of them for a 500 average.
Opening the season against a veteran nine from Kent-Meridian, the Trojan Pups were unable to hit the
clutches, and were defeated lO to 3 by Norm Borrell's charges.
Federal Way came to Fife to meet our boys only to be defeated 4 to 2 by some excellent pitching by David
Hall and Bob Mitton. Our batting eye came to life as well with Tom Gilmore, David Hall, and Bob Peterson, each
hitting the ball hard.
After a week of rain the "Pups" traveled to Kent-Meridian for a return engagement with Norm Borrell's
nine. Behind the pitching of Bob Mitton, the Trojans made a game of it up to the fifth inning, when Kent's bats
began to boom. We found ourselves trailing by six runs. In the top of the sixth, Fife came to life with four runs
on three singles, a walk, and a triple by Tom Gilmore. Kent cut off the rally and went on to win by 8 to 5.
In the windup game, Federal Way played host to Coach Johnson's forces for the second time, and for the
second time, Federal Way was defeated. This time it was by a score of l8 to 4. The score by no means is
indicative of relative power of the two teams. Federal Way forced in 7 runs on walks.
This ended a fairly successful season with greater goals to look forward to in l953.

Junior High Band Music Appreciation
The Junior Band is to be commended on the fine
work it has done this year under Mr. Flechtner's
capable direction. Junior Band is a class for music
students to learn what band work consists of. They
learn the principles and fundamentals which will
qualify them for Senior Band positions. When they
have reached the Senior Band level they can be
promoted, if vacant positions are available, before
they are old enough to enroll directly. This year I3
seventh and eighth grade students have taken
places in the Senior Band. This is a definite honor
and they have proved themselves deserving of it
by their good work.
The remaining Junior Band members will enioy
the privilege of ioining the Senior Band in one con-
cert, the Pierce County Music Festival at Vashon,
March 20. They will also combine with the grade
school advanced band to play two numbers in the
The Fife Junior High Choir this year has been
under the capable direction of Mr. Alfred Flechtner.
This year's first semester class consisted of twenty-
eight members and the second semester class of
thirty members. During the early part of the semes-
ter, the students listen to over a hundred records
and learn to distinguish between them by telling
the name of the record and of the composer. They
first learn the names of notes, sharps, flats, key
signatures, meter signatures, note values, rest
values, Latin musical terms, plus a little work in
harmony. These students are even taught to write
music. Learning to distinguish between instruments
and different tones is also part of their class work.
Actually the students do not start singing until a
month before the class ends.
When these people have completed this class,
they are well prepared to take up any kind of music
they wish to follow.

Girls' Club Christian Club
The members of the Junior High Girls' Club, T22
strong, met at the beginning of the year to elect
their officers. They chose Donna Hergert as their
chairman, Alene Woodside, secretary, and Donna
Matson, treasurer. To assist the treasurer in collect-
ing dues, they chose Agnes Brydon, Pat Rooney,
Sorena Johnson, Jacque Yates, and Norma Lee
Ellestad as representatives for each room.
A cabinet was selected to plan the social events
and to see that business was carried out. There are
7 members from the ninth grade, 6 from the eighth
grade, and 6 from the seventh grade in the cabinet.
The club had two main social events during the
year. The first was a Christmas party for the iunior
high, which was a big success. The second was the
annual Mothers' and Daughters' Tea. It also was
enjoyed by everyone.
The Fife Christian Club was a new organization
this year which came into being because of the
desire of some of the Christian students in Fife to
ioin in the study of the Bible and in fellowship with
Christ in coniunction with their school life.
Our club met every Tuesday and Thursday after
school, and the members ioined in prayer, song,
and Bible study. Occasionally we invited guest
speakers, Activities included parties at the homes
of members and the organization of a quiz team
to represent Fife at "Youth for Christ" meetings in
Tacoma on Saturday evenings.
The officers that the club selected were Carleeta
Phelps, president, Sandra Lunde, vice president,
lone Kvamme, secretary, Diane Shepler, program
chairman, Margery Holmquist, song leader. Under
the leadership of Mrs. Vinson, our adviser who so
graciously gave her time and advice, the club
enioyed a successful year.
