Here we go in our spaceship, rocketing to the moon in the year I984 to the home of DON McKECHNlE,
the millionaire, who is noted for his scientific mind. ln his glass home, he is having a dinner in honor of his recent
expedition to Pluto. He has invited his high school graduating class to ioin him. While gazing over his glass ball-
room trying to recollect the names of his former classmates, he sees a beautiful redhead, holding a gold cigarette
holder, sitting on a blue velvet divan. Oh! My goodness, it's BARBARA FOX. Well, these movie actresses, you
can never tell.
Look! Who's over there? BARBARA MARZANO and GAYUS SWEET, the two best policewomen on the planet
Mercury, showing off their space patrol badges to the best lawyer on Mars, GARY WEAVER. After I7 years and
5 months, he finally received his lawyer's degree.
ELLSWORTH FINLAYSON, the Senior Math teacher of Venus High School, is asking RONNY JONES, the famous
wrestler, how he keeps his weight up to 200 pounds. Ronny's manager this year is LUCILLE OFSTAD.
The president of the Spacemen's Club, JOHN REINES, is over by the punch bowl talking to EVERETT PLUMB.
Ev's latest release from Sing Sing enables him to attend the party. Ev borrow two Sheriff Tex badges from Wool-
worth's, "The Store of Spacewear."
LUCILLE FRIEND, the well-known ballet star on Neptune, broke her ankle and is in a wheelchair being pushed
by her maid, CAROL JENSEN. Carol's corporation of HUSH MUSH failed.
ERNIE BAILEY, now chief of police of New York City, has escorted a former classmate, JANET GIESSEL, the
Society Woman of the World, who is now showing off to MARILYN SISKA and KATHRINA SALZMANN, who are
bubble dancers and singers in a New York night club. My, how times have changed. SHARON KELLEY, who is now
a Hawaiian dancer at HAROLD FARRIS'S dance studio, is telling the women about her new swing.
MARGIE BLODGETT, the head of the music department at Fife High School, is sitting next to TOMMY KAMEN-
ZIND, her accompanist. Tommy is taking over Liberace's place on television.
VIC COON, who has finally obtained his life-long ambition to become an elevator boy in the Empire State
Building, is telling LORRETTA OLIVE the ups and downs of the place. Lorretta has moved up in her profession also.
She now scrubs decks on battleships. Helping out the Navy, Lorretta?
JUANITA BRODAHL, JERRILEE BROWNING and JOY CARR have combined and now call themselves "The
Three Jackpots.'l' They sing in a gambling casino in Reno, Nevada. LOREN CHINN has taken over the Perry

circus. Be sure to see it when it comes to your planet.
ALBERT COCHENNETTE, the president of The United Planets, is talking to RAY TIMMONS who is now sole
owner of a rocket gas station, about future problems of the universe.
Who is this beautiful looking young lady entering the room? I don't believe l've ever seen her before, she
must have the wrong planet. JOYCE PEDERSEN? I can't believe it! She weighs only l20 pounds. lHer one
ambition is at last accomplished.l Congratulations, Joyce.
MARY BISIG, who won the "Daily Planet" contest, is very fortunate to be Mrs. Superman. They fly from
planet to planet without a rocket. Near Mary is INEZ ISAKSEN, ianitor at Pacific Lutheran College.
What could that noise be outside? It sounds like a new rocket with duals. Well, if it isn't Miss ELSIE YOT-
SUUYE, Superintendent of Fife Schools. Still single, Elsie? What happened, did he get disgusted because rockets
ran the airplanes out of business?
Let's see who is in the rumpxus room, there seems to be a commotion - well, if it isn't NORITA FALASHI, the
famous bank robber, trying to get Don's safe open. I guess she will never change. The two best detectives on the
Pluto force, NADINE MORGAN and BEVERLY TORGERSON, have already got her handcuffed.
The married women are gathered in a corner talking about their flower gardens. There is Mrs. Russ Wil-
liams, the former DELORES RUSSELL. "What, no kids?" That is a surprise. DIANA HOLT is now Mrs. John Snod-
grass. She left her thirteen additions at home. The former MARSHA GORDON, who is now Mrs. George Bush-
bob, is teaching shorthand the longhand way at Saturn High School.
HIDEO WATANABE, the well known scientist, spent the last year inventing a superiet rocket to go 2000
miles an hour so he could beat everyone to the party. He beat everyone by two weeks. Good going, Hideo. Who
knows, he may be another Einstein. You'd never believe it, but TADASHI KAJAMURA and SAM SHIMIZU are
famous hair stylists, and they own their own shops on Venus. GENE MEAD is working with them. He has iust
invented Zip Curl, a new home permanent. GENE BROWN has taken to the water world. He is preparing to swim
the Pacific Ocean. The water must be coming closer together. Good luck, Gene.

Sharon is Dr. Frazer's assistant nurse. VERA CRAWFORD and GLORIANN MILLER are deep sea divers. They are
diving for pearls south of Pago Pago. Vera opens the oysters and Gloriann takes out the pearls under water.

that flies on top of the water. Don is the new king of Egypt. He left his seventeen wives at home. JEANNE PE-
TORAK, who is the new mayor of Fife, Washington, is talking politics to Dick. DICK MEGINNISS is a contractor,

on some unknown planet.

Richard Lightburne served as presiding officer for the iunior class during a most active year.
Other officers included Bob Peterson, vice-president, Kenny Devenny, secretary, Helen Makai, treas-
urer, and Tom Lelli, sergeant-at-arms. Mrs. Thelma Booth was faculty advisor.
The big problem
for any iunior class is financing the annual iunior-senior dance. Several raffles
and Friday night dances plus class dues and a class play have made the dinner-dance a reality.
The raffle of a Jantzen sweater netted the class sixty dollars. Dean Crawford won the sweater.
A fifteen dollar gift certificate from Washington Hardware was won by Annette Ryan. The class play,
presented in April, enlarged the class funds and provided lots of fun for the cast.
The final class activity of the year was the dinner-dance held in the Wedgewood Room at the
Winthrop Hotel. The

The sophomore class, under the supervision of Mrs. Marian Young and Mr. Carl Hatley, got under
way with the election of class officers. Those elected were Marcia Mettler, president, Leonard Light-
burne, vice-president, Karen Yoshioka, secretary, Dick Rivenes, treasurer, Eveline Reichlin, publicity
manager, and Lyle Rader, sergeant-at-arms. Student council representatives were Dick Rivenes, Con-
nie Ellsworth, and Donna Hergert.
As in any newly elected group of class officers, the financial problem was the first matter for
consideration. Class dues and a dance for senior high students solved this.
The sophomore students were well represented in extra-curricular activities such as sports, F.F.A.,
F.H.A., Trojan Knights, Troianettes, Drill Team, and Torch Club. Three sophomores--Marcia Mettler,
Mary Jones, and Lois Larson-were chosen as yell leaders for the reserve basketball team.
With the motto "The Knowledge of the Past ls the Key to the future," the class of '56 will do
well in the next two years.

The annual this year was planned by Marilyn Siska, editor, and Mrs. Alma Vinson, faculty advisor. Eight
new pages were added giving us more picture features, but by increasing the number of pages the over-all cost
of the annual increased. This raised the problem of financing the year book. The price to the students was not
increased, and the difference in cost was to be made up by money-raising campaigns. First, all classes and
active organizations were assessed according to their page sizes, and the student council voted that all proceeds
from noon dances were to go towards the annual. The staff sponsored a dance in October, and with the help of
the Troianettes, Troian Knights, Torch Club, and the Home Economics Classes, an all-school bake sale was held
at Andre's Market.
The co-editor for this year was Marilyn Trolson with Barbara LaVeille as business manager. Dave Gilmore
was senior high sports editor, while Janice Kotchkoe handled the iunior high sports. Joy Carr was in charge of
senior writeups, and Barbara Marzano had the senior pictures. Reporters were Elsie Yotsuuye, Mary Bisig, Jeanne

"SONG OF MY HEART
On November 25, 1953, a cast of fourteen members of the senior class presented "Song of My Heart," a
two-act romance with a prologue and an epilogue.
The prologue took place in the living room of an old southern mansion where Sylvia llnez lsaksenl and her
friend, Laurel lBarbara Marzanol, were reading in a diary the story of the broken romance of her grandmother,
lovely Sylvia Moyne. The diary revealed the enchanting bitter-sweet story of the first Sylvia iBeverly Torgersonl
and Michael Willoughby lDick Meginnissl. Steve Moyne llohn Reinesl, brother of Sylvia, had challenged another
man to a duel over his girl friend, Shirley lleanne Petorakl, and had left him in the woods. On hearing this,
Michael went to the woods, was caught beside the wounded man, and was put in iail. Then Mrs. Moyne lBarbara
LaVeillel was sure Sylvia should marry the sincere and mannerly Harley Foreman lEverett Plumbl. Desiree lElsie
Yotsuuyel aroused doubts in Sylvia's mind about Michael because she herself was in love with him. Sylvia and
Harley's wedding took place with Shirley and Faith lloretta Olivel, Sylvia's best friends, as bridesmaids. The
two Negro servants, Mandy lGloriann Millerl and Poley lBill Mohlerl, played hilarious parts throughout the play.
As the events went into the epilogue, Poley lplayed by Don McKechnie in the prologue and in the epiloguel
was still a servant in the house. The young Michael lGary Weaverl was persuading Sylvia to be his wife, so they
did not- imitate the mistake of their grandparents.
The cast wishes to thank Miss Agnes Dunn for all the help she gave them as director of the play.

assemblies, school plays, and programs, serving at the
football banquet, giving assistance at the college confer-
ence, and ushering at the dedication of the new primary
building, at Baccalaureate, and at Commencement.

Our scholastic honor society, Torch, this year boasted
thirty-one members. Of these eight were graduating
seniors, nine were iuniors, and fourteen were sophomores.
Officers for the year were Barbara LaVeille, president,
Terry Kawaguchi, vice-president, Beverly Gordon, secre-
tary, Jerrilee Browning, treasurer, Jeanne Petorak and
Beverly Torgerson, points chairmen. Miss Lindstrom was
In May the members held a farewell party in honor of
the seniors. At this time Torch pins were presented to the
STUDE T COUNCIL
The student council was headed by Stewart Carder,
the elected president, who ioined the Service leaving Jim
Ragan, the vice-president, to lead the student council.
This was a year full of activities. First was the Home-
coming, which was a huge success. After the Homecom-
ing, the student body went together with the Active Club
to put on the annual football banquet. The last function,
sponsored partly by the student body, was the Carnival,
held late in March. This was a good money-making
proiect that helped to build up the ailing student body
The Fife choir, directed by Mr. Alfred G. Flechtner,
selected as its officers: president, Mary Bisig, vice-presi-
dent, Margie Blodgett, secretary and historian, Delores
Russell, and treasurer, Sandra Begley. The choir started
the year with sixty-one voices, and by mid-semester had
increased it to seventy voices.
The first program of the year was given for the Milton
P.-T.A., the next was given in response to an invitation to
sing at the Poodle Dog. An exchange assembly was given
at Vashon. At the Bon Marche, the group sang selected
Christmas Carols throughout the store. We gave our com-
plete Christmas program there. lt was emphasized by the
different backdrops portraying the songs with different
scenes. We sang " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas,"
a tradtional song, "Silent Night," and many other carols.
Jim Hagan and Marie House sang solos.
We have two new sextettes which made appearances
at the Bon Marche, the Christmas program, the Poodle
Dog, and the Choir Festival. The senior sextette consists
of six senior girls: Inez Isaksen, Sharon Kelley, Marsha
Gordon, Mary Bisig, Delores Russell, and Barbara Fox.

Mr. A. G. Flechtner, who directed the band this year,
may be congratulated upon a very fine iob. There has
been hard work for this group to try to keep its "superior"
rating, which it received last year for the first time.
The band's first activity of the year was on September
2l, when they performed for the third straight year at
the Western Washington Fair. Same of their other activ-
ities included performances at football and basketball
games, concerts at other schools, recordings for K.M.O.,
the Christmas Concert, a performance at the dedication
of the Primary Building, the Foster contest, and the band
We may start looking forward to hearing the sound
of real music coming from the woodwind section for at
least four more years. This year the band has seventeen
clarinets, including one bass clarinet, one alto clarinet,
and an E-flat clarinet. Only one person in the clarinet
section is not in junior high.

Competition has become
"challenges" or contests are called about every two to
three months. During these "challenges" the clarinetists
all go into a room and separately play a tune. The other
members of the band hear them and vote for them, sight
unseen, from first to seventeenth places. As a result the
students work hard to earn choice places.

The Fife High School Girls' Club opened the year by having each of the three classes - the seniors, iuniors,
and sophomores - sponsor a bake sale. The club sponsored a dance and a concession stand ata football game.
Our next project, in keeping with our motto: "One for All, and All for One," was helping the less fortunate by
giving Thanksgiving baskets. Three families were given the baskets, and all enioyed them very much. At the
Homecoming celebration, the Girls' Club entered a decorated car with some of the officers and members riding
in the car.
Sharon Kelley is the general chairman of our annual Mother-Daughter Tea. The theme this year is "Koney
At our meetings, we have had guest speakers.
First we had the school nurse, Mrs. True, who talked
on posture and dieting. Then we had Mrs. Hughes
from the Family Court Commission in Tacoma, who
talked on family relations. Our adviser, Miss Dunn,
also was a speaker at one of our meetings.
We have had a very full year and a good year,
and we wish to thank Miss Agnes Dunn for her
wonderful help and advice.

GIRLS' VOLLEYBALL AND
Our after-school sports has proved to be a very
successful girls' activity this year with our new
adviser, Miss Enger.
The sport with which we started this year was
volley ball. That proved to be very well organized.
The girls elected eight team captains who in turn
chose their own teams. Team number two, whose
captain was Rhea Crowell, won the volley ball
Next on the program was basketball. There were
only six teams chosen for that sport. Team number one, with Marsha Gordon as captain, won the champion-
ship this time. This team was undefeated.
Baseball has also been very successful. There were six captains elected and they, too, chose their own
teams. The unpredictable spring weather imposed many handicaps upon outdoor play, but the teams made
good use of the nice days.
Two years, which are the equivalent of five hundred points in girls' sports, earn a minor while three years,
or seven hundred fifty points, earn a major toward a plaque. Any girl who has earned two hundred fifty points
is eligible to ioin the Girls' Athletic Association.

our faculty who passed away February 3. The
students will always remember him as a fair and
impartial teacher, as a friend and adviser. The
faculty will remember him as an inspirational force
in their profession. His wrestling team will never
forget his tireless effort and the time he spent with
them, teaching them that even though winning a
match is important, being a good sportsman and
getting along with others are more important.
Therefore we dedicate our sports, section to an
enthusiastic worker and a lover of sports, Mr.

The "Troian Ski Club," under the direction of Mr. Flechtner, was quite active this year and skiied
mostly around the Snoqualmie Pass area. Members did much to promote the sport in the high school.
At their regular meetings they studied skiing, first aid, and safety precautions. Through the year they
maintained a IOO 7. skiing record with no iniuries to any skier or guest ofthe club.
This year for the 'First time the club acquired emblems. Our patch of a mountain set in a blue
background with the name "Troian Ski Club" framing it has become familiar on many of the slopes
of the surrounding mountains - as a symbol of safe skiing, good sportsmanship, and comradship.

The freshman class, with Miss Helen Enger as their adviser, started their activities this year with
the election of their class officers. The selection of officers was a difficult task because of the large
number of freshmen and because their abilities and personal qualities were known only to their close
friends. The class chose Dick Pruett as their president. Mary Lou Burke was elected vice-president,
Diane Ryan, treasurer, and Donna Ryan, secretary. These people have proved themselves to be cap-
able officers and have given their full co-operation to the. adviser and to the class in all of their
projects. The freshmen have shown themselves to be an outstanding class as workers.
Besides the fun, there has been a lot of work to do, but the freshman class has come through
with flying colors.
This class is very active, is co-operative, and has a lot of school spirit. We can look forward to
hearing a lot about this group in future school activities.

The seventh grade class started the year by electing officers for their home rooms. In the two
classes Yoshie Kono, JoAnn Lindberg, Bob Evenson, and Robert Westfall were elected presidents and
vice-presidents respectively. John McDonald and Yoshie Kono are the class representatives for their
class in the junior high student body meetings.
The main problem of the two classes was finding ways of making money for their class. Mr.
Arnason's class went together with Mr. Wickstrom's eighth grade class in putting on an auction sale,
which brought in about fourteen dollars. This money they intend to use for activities for their classes.
The main activities of the year were the Christmas and the Valentine parties held in both Mr.
Arnason's and Mr. Murphy's rooms.
Out of the seventh grade class came the winner of the magazine sale, Tommy Yotsuuye.
The class of '59 will contain ambitious, future-minded citizens.

occasions such as Christmas, Hallowe'en, and
St. Valentine's day. It sponsored the school
magazine drive last fall. It submitted several
changes in regard to the operation of boys'
and girls' service clubs, the Sabres and Saber-

The Junior High Choir, under the direction of
Mr. Alfred G. Flechtner, now consists of thirty-
eight members. One third of class time is spent
in learning music fundamentals, one third is
devoted to music appreciation, and the other
third to singing.
This year the choir studied the operetta,
"Dizzy Baton." Eleven students from this class
had an opportunity to appear on television as
We are proud of our choir's progress this
year. May it continue as well in the future.
JU IOR BA D
The Junior Band, under the direction of Mr.
Flechtner, has had a very progressive year.
Beginners learn the fundamentals of music and
the responsibilities of the Senior Band posi-
tions which they will some day hold. During the
first semester, the Junior Band, assisted by some
of their classmates from the Senior Band, play-
ed at one of the basketball games. At the be-
ginning of the second semester, the band lost
fifteen members to the Senior Band. Member-
ship grew again to about seventeen. They im-
proved enough to play at the March Music

JU IOR HIGH FOOTBALL
The T953 Sabre football team didn't win all the games that were played under their banner, but
they did have a lot of fun. They displayed a fine type of school spirit throughout the entire season.
Jack Ensrud, Dick Pruett, Monty Fox, Eddie Stipes, and many of the other fellows did a terrific iob all
season. Tom Benner and Dave Murrey were iniured during the season, so were out of the game.
Some others who started the season discovered that the fact their parents lived outside the district
made them ineligible for play. ln spite of these disappointments, a lot of seventh and eighth grade
boys on the squad learned the real funda-
mentals of football. Their experience will
help them to play better ball in years to
come. Many of the ninth raders will
ANN SPEAR probably be finding a berth oi the senior SANDRA BRYDON
high squad when next fall comes. Mr.
Wangsmo did a wonderful iob of coaching
the boys this season, and you can look to
next season's team to be out there fight-
ing every minute on the gridiron.

JU IOR HIGH BASKETBALL
The iunior high basketball team came through the l953-54 season with a 2 won 4 loss record. Ably
oached by Mr. Wangsmo, the Sabres won their share of games and showed excellent spirit and determination
iroughout the season. A number of the boys will find places on the senior high teams of Fife in future years.
.lthough a number of lettermen will be lost this year, many of the boys will be on hand for next season's play.
Those earning letters this season were Mitton, Paulson, Stump, Lightburne, Young, Harris, Danberg, C. Pruett,
favin, Carlton, Hollenback, Triplett, R. Pruett, Sweet, Rowe, Lewis, Murrey, Wahlers, Fox, Ensrud, and Miller.

.IU IOR HIGH BASEBALL l953
The Fife Junior High Sabres received their baseball training under the capable direction of Mr. Marvin
Johnson. The team came through the season batting an even .500 in the won-lost column. With iust a few return-
ing lettermen, the team pulled together and improved as time went along, The Sabres showed a lot of good
teamwork and spirit. That, in addition to Mr. Johnson's excellent coaching, produced a fine showing for the team
in the four games that they played.
Two games were played with Federal Way, one with Peninsula, and one with Kent-Meriidan.
Sixteen players received letters, and ten of them will be returning this spring, so prospects for the 1954 team
look very favorable. Several ninth grade boys - Leonard Lightburne, Dick Rivenes, Spencer Nordfors, Louie
Cerqui, Fred Plumb, Craig Buchanan, Bob Warren, and Vernon Cross - will move on up to the varsity squad. One
seventh grade player, Larry Docken, who was an excellent baseball prospect, moved to Portland. The team re-
gretted his loss keenly.
Those who will be returning from the i953 squad to play iunior high ball are Gerald Carder, Louis Stump,
Jerry Harris, Eddie Stipes, Paul Miller, Bob Mead, and Jim Lewis. With the addition of the new material from
the 1954 seventh grade, the new team should enioy a well-rounded season.

Mrs. Houston saw many students enter and
leave our school. She worked in our lunch-
