FLEUR de LIS DEDICATED
After devoting forty-four years of his life in the educational pro-
fession Mr. Jesse Cripps counselor and business education
instructor retired last semester. Mr. Cripps Fordson faculty mem-
ber since 1938 was a business education instructor and later a
counselor--a responsibility which he mastered skillfully during
his last eighteen years at Fordson. Along with these duties, he
taught night-school typing, sponsored many senior classes, was
seen at almost all school dances, and was an ardent fan of all
Fordson plays. Although Mr. Cripps will have much new time on
his hands, he will keep himself fairly occuoied by fishing, travel-
ing, land perhaps baby sitting or counseling for his seven grand-
children. Because of Mr. Cripps' long and successful period of
service to Fordson, the 1960 Fleur de Lis is dedicated to him.
T0 FORDSON'S MR. CRIPPS
.lust as a company is only as good as its leaders, a
high school is only as good as its faculty. The
faculty is the group which chaperones dances, ath-
letic contests and other extra-curricular activities.
They not only teach things written in text books but
act as an advisory group. When a student has a prob-
lem or a question many times his best friend will be
his teacher A student learns only as much as his
teacher desires to teach h1m It is the faculty which
makes a high school scholastically accredlted and
helps each student progress upward on the stairway
to the future

What creates more excitement, enthusiasm, and
interest than a Fordson sports event? The first foot-
ball game, or the all important basketball game which
decides the championship--these are events that
arouse all of Fordson to join the excitement. The
large cheering sections, which are as much a part of
the teams as the members themselves, prove Ford-
sonite's loyal support and school spirit. But most
lmportant IS the fact we respect our teams respect
them because they play to w1n even though the odds
are sometlmes unfavored Learning to accept defeat
and pleasure in success are steps everyone has to
take on their stalrway to the future

Friday morning just wouldn't be the same without a morning pep rally at the main stairs. The pep band, standing-
on the stairs, always is the final big "booster"that gives the Fordson teams the much needed support. The cheer-
leaders shown here are Kitty Kulig, Sue Horvath, and Peg Bloink, all l2A's, and IIA Barbara Manga.

With a definite Finnish atmosphere, students
gather in the lounge to study, relax, or watch
television in comfort. Finnish decorations em-
phasized the theme behind F'ordson's Christmas
display during the season's holidays. This parti-
cular theme was chosen in honor of foreign ex-
change student, Anja Orama, l'2A. Above the
archway in the student lounge can be seen two
Finnish Christmas Greetings saying 'Nlerry Christ-
mas and A Happy New Year.

Time out for lunch and the latest
gossip. Fifty minutes to digest food
and prepare for the next hour's class.
TIME FOR LUNCH AND RELAXATION
Accurately counting the lunch money keeps these
girls busy at the end of fifth hour lunch
Serving lunch is a hurried and hectic time for this busy cook, and the
line keeps coming and coming and ........
"lYhat's my next move," asks 125 Bill Garrison as
he studies the chess hoard during lunch hour. His
opponent looks as if he's thinking just as much as
Bill is in order to make his move.
My A X
As lOB's, graduation seems so far away that we
seldom think of it. However, weeks soon merge into
months and months into years. Before we know it,
the flurry and excitement of graduation is upon us.
At commencement excercises, one of the last school
functions that graduates attend as members of the
student body they walk solemnly down the aisle
more mature for their three high school years They
talk with their frlends knowing that they may never
see many of them agaln But they are ready to begin
a new life perhaps t college or to work where they
w1ll make new friends However they will always
remember Fordson its students and SCIIVIIIGS as
they say their final goodbyes and take their final
step on the stairway to the future
