In appreciation, we, the Class of 1956, dedicate The Echo to Mr. Moyer, who we
think has given special attention to our class. During our senior year he has been our
chief class advisor. We have taken our problems to him, and he has always been ready
to aid us in every possible way. Through his help and assistance we bring you readers
this year's Echo. g
Mr. Moyer, this is yours for the sincerity with which you have served Fisher High
School during the past six yC31'Si:" For your guidance and thoughtfulness we gratefully
say, "Thank You." I ft 9

Another day dawns on our campus,
and with it comes a renewed
effort to uphold the tra-
ditions of the past and
build an even Stronger
school in the future
As time goes by
as days add up
to weeks and
what it is. One
of the goals of the
Echo staff is to record
through pictures and wri-

aspects that have formed the
real character of our schoolg
the work, the fun, the problems,
the excitement, and the friendships

To The Seniors:
It has been a pleasure to work with the members of
the Class of 1956. We of the faculty trust that you have
enjoyed your four years at Fisher High School. Your
teachers have done their best to help each one of you to
obtain the skills, knowledge, and social graces, so necessary
in our modern society. We congratulate you on your

To The Seniors:
Congratulations! Another major goal is accomplished.
Each of you, as graduating seniors, undoubtedly feels
most enthusiastic about receiving your diploma. No more
high school. This is a natural and normal feeling. As
time goes by and as you set your sight on more lofty goals,
l hope that you will return to Fisher High for help and
guidance at any time you feel we may be able to offer it.
Time will also lend credence to the oft heard
saying that high school days are the best days of one's life.
It is also my hope that you will cherish them in the sense
of their value to you to the degree that you will lend
your efforts as alumni to make each succeeding senior
class just a little better-equipped to meet and master the
intricacies of life. My best wishes to each of you.

We're called "Green Frerhmeny and that's exactly how we felt when we entered
Fisher High School during that first week in September. We knew we had a lot to
learn, but we did our best trying to adjust ourselves to our new surroundings.
As the weeks went by, we felt more at ease and before long we knew we would like
our surroundings for the next four years. We had heard many rumors about Initiation
Day and, even though it proved to be fun, we were all glad after it had become history.

Highlighting our year's activities was the annual Father-Son Banquet with its
sumptuous meal and interesting program. Prior to this, during the year, the FFA
sponsored and participated in many other events. Throughout the year numerous
field trips were taken to see various projects and get up-to-date information on agri-
culture techniques. Included in these projects were judging contests and livestock

With the "FHA Rare Bowl" being our theme, we enjoyed another active year
filled with interesting and varied activities. Each month featured an outstanding event
with some of the activities including a chicken barbecue open to the public, a Mother-
Daughter Tea, a Family Night featuring a por-luck supper and program, and a Christmas
party with gift exchange. The most important week in our year's activities was FHA
Week during which time FHA girls showed in different ways what it means to be a
member of The Future Homemakers of America.

The Student Council, consisting of elected repre-
sentatives from classes and organizations, serves as a clear-
ing house for student body problems. Discussing and
solving these problems as well as planning for the future
is the task of the Student Council.
The big project sponsored by our organization this
year was the Homecoming Week activities. Several as-
sembly programs were also sponsored by the council.

When the Fisher football squad took the field
against Milford on the evening of September 16,
a new era in the history of football at Fisher High
School was begun. Even though Fisher had become
a 6-man football power-house in recent years, it was
evident that the transition to 11-man football would
necessitate a rebuilding program. Before the season
started Coach Kopp predicted, "We have a lot to
learn, and l've no idea how rapidly we'll catch on.
I expect it will take a while to catch up with the
teams which have been playing football for years.
Teamwork is what we're working on this year."
The first two defeats at the hands of Milford
and Farmer City were obviously the result of inex-
perience. Against Milford, lack of defense was the
deciding factor. In the Farmer City tilt improve-
ment in that department was seen as the Bunnies
held the Farmers scoreless in the second half while
scoring a touchdown.
The season's lone varsity victory came in the
third game as Fisher triumphed over St. joseph,
19-7, with Dave Gossard breaking loose time after
time, accounting for Fisher's 19 points.
The next two games were the most disappoint-
ing ones to lose-the first to Mahomet and the
second, a heartbreaking 26-19 defeat by LeRoy.
Once again lack of defense was mainly responsible
for defeat although in these games the boys began to
pick up downfield blocks for the runners.
Even though the final three games against the
veteran Octavia, Heyworth, and Saybrook-Arrow-
smith squads ended in defeats, the fighting Bunnies
showed streaks of good, spirited play against their
more powerful and experienced opponents.
Playing outstanding football during their final
year at F.H.S. were the following seniors: Dave
Gossard, Darrell Wilson, Ronnie Camden, Gene
Boyd, Eugene Wheeler, Richard Martin, and Everett

instructions before game time.
A bright spot in the picture was several vic-
tories by the Freshman-Sophomore football team.
Since a big majority of the players our for football
this season were freshmen and sophomores, the
prospects for the coming seasons appear to be
Although the Won-Lost column was not im-
pressive, our gridders can rightly feel proud of the
courageous teamwork displayed during this rebuild-

The Fisher cagemen made their basketball de-
but a successful outing by downing LeRoy, 54-43.
In their opening tilt the Bunnies, playing under their
new coach, Mr. Crawford, proved that their scrappy,
determined play would afford tough opposition
for all their foes.
After defeats at the hands of ABL and Octavia,
the Bunnies bounded back to trounce Piper City
and Mahomet by wide margins with Coach Crawford
using every player on his varsity team in these
games. Fisher split the remaining four games before
the Christmas vacation losing to St. Joseph and
Deland-Weldon but topping Heyworth and Unity.
The highlight of the season came in County
Tournament play when the Bunnies advanced to
the finals only to lose out to the St. joseph power-
house. The first hurdle overcome by the Bunnies
in their march to the County finals was Homer
which succumbed, 71-49. The rejuvenated cagemen
gave another stellar performance in routing Univer-
sity High, 71-46. With their victory over Ogden
came the final game of the tournament against
highly-touted St. joseph. The Indians lived up to
their class and downed Fisher, 71-51. The Bunnies,
however, played excellent ball throughout the tour-
nament and were proud with the second place
trophy. Fisher's top performer in the tournament
was Dave Gossard, who led the tourney's scorers
with a total of 72 points in the four games. Dave's
35 points in the Homer victory was just 4 points shy
of the Tournament record.
Following tournament play the Bunnies con-
tinued playing inspired basketball by topping Homer
and Mahomet for the second time by huge scores.
Fisher next faced four formidable foes losing to Say-
brook, bouncing back to defeat a favored Mansfield
team, and then losing to Farmer City and St. joseph
again. The Mansfield fracas was an airtight thriller
with Fisher squeezing through to a 67-63 win.
The Bunnies showed real strength in their next
three top-heavy victories over Ogden, Deland-
Weldon, and University High. The cagers ended
their season by losing to Roberts-Thawville, one of
East Central Illinois's top teams.
The season featured real teamwork, as the
scoring record indicates. Playing an important role
in the respectable season's record of 15 victories
against ll defeats were the six senior cagemen-
Dave Gossard, Everett Heiser, Eugene Wheeler, Dan
Cullen, Darrell Wilson, and Curtis Brock.
With another year's experience, next year's
team, headed by Jim Horsch, Dean Carmien, Lyle
Wheeler, and other members of the tournament
winning Fresh-Soph team, should be just as success-
ful as its predecessors.
