Another busy year xs drawmg to a close Measured by
the act1v1t1es recorded ln thls volume xt has been a suc

A record class IS steppmg out no accept, the challenge
of a complex and rapldly changmg world A new bulldmg

Old MISSOUTI can you tell me'J
As the xounger waters pass
Sllent as the old fort yonder
Now a grrm and crumblxng mass
Tell me of ILS brave defenders
Of ILS traders trappers braves
Man the loopholes with its heroes
Rouse the warrlors from the1r graves
Let the mcense of some battle
Hover oer thls sllent tomb
And the war whoop shrrlly soundmg
Mlngle wlth the cannons boom
Though ILS glory has departed
And ILS crumbl1ng walls decav
Hrstory throws a halo round 1t
That shall never fade away
Thomas Murray Spencer
Mr Spencer a salesman travellmg through Fort Benton and lmpressed by 1f,S
h1StOI'Y has glorxfxed It wlth hrs poems He adds thxs trlbute 1n prose
Wmdmg along the mountamslde on the Great Northern one gets a splendld
new of Fort Benton nestled beneath the hllls that surround lt a veritable oasls ln the
desert that spreads from Great Falls to Haxre green and texdant lawns around flne
homes majestlc trees llmng the banks of the MISSOUFI and stretchlng from the mam
street almost to the fot on the other slde Thls town contalns more refmement hos
pltalltx and money to the square 1nch than an5 other town of 1I,S s1ze ln Montana The
old fort has hlstorrc lnterest Orlglnallv ll guarded the treasures of the traders of the
Nolrthwest as 1t was the head of nauvatxon Volumes could be written of the mcldents
and battles that took place around old Benton when soldlers ol the regular army held
The blockhouse remaxns to mark the spot where the fort once stood It has been
restored through the efforts of the Daughters of the Ame rcan Revolutlon who hate
buxlt a park around xt At the tlme that I wrote the xerses Old Fort Benton lt was
goxng fast lnto decay Old man Green who owned the Grand Hotel property Sald to
me Spencer I wlsh you would go down to the old fort and wrlte a poem about It The
younger generatlon dont care a damn about It but we old tlmers do
Thls poem was wrltten ln ten mlnutes after breakfast next mormng In my w1ll
I have dlrected that my body be cremated and the ashes placed m a su1table urn to be
burled undo the fort or ln a nxche and lf pOSS1bl9 that the poem be engraved on a brass
plate that those who vlslt the place ln the vears to come may know the reverence that
Thomas Murray Spencer felt for xt
Because as Spencer 1mpl1es and others state Fort Benton IS hrsto lcally known as
the blrthplace of Montana Fort Benton w1th the a1d of other Montana c1t1es under
the leadershlp of the KIWZHIS Clubs 1S ponsorlng a regatta from St L0u1s to Fort

JUNIOR LI 455 HISTORY
In 1934 srxty four of us started on a caratan journey to Plkes Peak Our captarn
was Francrs Robmson and rn case he should be captured bv the Indrans or some other
traglc fate befall h1m we elected Raymond Long a v1ce captam To keep a record of
Indran attacks deaths and gold drscoverxes we chose 'Vhldred MCKIDIBX We elected
Eldon Overholser to represent us at the councrl frre and Mr Borchers was chosen by
unanrmous vote to be our offrcral gurde and interpreter
The frrst event of xmportan e was an attack by some Indrans called the senrors
Although they treated us rather roughly after the peace treaty was made we soon
became fast frlends
Our next event was a pow wow we put on for three Indran trrbes-the sophomore
Jumovrs and senrors It was a b1g success and drd much toward promotmv peace to
make our Journey safe
Nothrng else of rmportance happened untrl the begmnrng of the next vear when
we held another electron Th1s time we chose Roval Morrxson as our captam Norman
Jackson as our v1ce captam M1na Nottingham a our se etary and treasurer and Mr
Hess as our guxde When we took our census there were srxty three of us left from the
That year we we e very fortunate and were not attacked by the Indrans We were
so elated over the fact that we put on two pow wows Everyone enjoyed hlmself to the
utmost and peace and good w1ll were pre erved
The next year when we took the census there were lxtw of us left At the offlcral
electron we chose Norman Jackson as captarn Mrldred McK1nlay as v1ce captam M1na
Nottrngham as se etary and treasurer Donald S hmldt to represent us at councll flre
and Mrss Gannaway as gulde
was a bw succe s and was a great h lp to our fmanclal standlng
In the sprm we held another b1g pow wow the Junror prom to bld the semors

1937 The Pioneer FBHS
Starting out with a discouraging outlook due to graduation of most of last year
lettermen Coach Zile developed a team of which we hould all feel proud After gettlng
the promising Longhorn squad in knee pants and Jerseys Mr Zile found that the ma
terial tor building a championship team was evident
After two week of rather strenuous practice the Longhorns played the heavy
Alumni team on September 19 The odds of straight football and the powerful l1ne of
the Alumni proved too much for the starting team and so the Longhorns had to bow to
the score of 19 to 0 ln favor of the Alumni Some of the old heroes of F B H S who
stuck cleats in the old gridlron again were Bob and John Casey Joe and George Viel
leux R J and Harry Culbertson Fred Lenning Francis Schoonover Pee Wee Bram
lette and quite a number of others
The following week end the Longhorns gained revenge from the previous week
end deleat by trouncmg a strong Choteau team to the unlucky score of 13 to 0 Morrison
paved the way for victory in the third quarter by intercepting a Choteau pass in midfield
and running 30 ya: ds to Choteaus 18 yard line Johnson F B H S tackle came out of
the line on a growler play and made the first touchdown a. ound right end
Showing an improvement in their passing ability the Longhorns gained another
victory on October 3 by defeating a scrappy Dutton team by a s ore of 19 to 13 Bradley
and Morrison showed the old plgskm some thrills by passing it in the fourth quartex
a d1stance of 40 yards
Some people say that thirteen IS unlucky but this season the Longhorns didnt
think so for on the following week end the team trimmed the Stanford Wolve to the
tune of 13 to 0 Kurth the heavy quarter back of 132 pounds proyed his outstandin
fords punts and kickoffs during the game
The annual tilt between the Belt Huskies and the F B H S Longhorns for the
divisional district title ended in a victory for the Huskies after a playoff following the
12 to 12 tie at the end of the game The playoff is so arranged that each team lines up
with the ball in the center of the field with each team taking the ball for ten alternating
plays The winner of this style of playoff is the team which has advanced the ball the
farthest into the other teams territory The Belt team gained a fiye yard margin in
The Longhorns next met the mo e experienced team from Conrad A drizzlmff
rain made the field very slippery before the game was started After the first few
minutes of play the gridiron was cut up by cleats the ball was hard to pass 4with
fumbles and poor k1CkSP and both players and spectators expe lenced much discomfort
The Longhorns at the end of the game had slid through with a score of 20 to 0 in their
The last game of the season to be played on the local gridiron was played on
October 31 when the Longhorns played the Great Falls Reserves The Cardinal and
White gridder played a good game but could not overcome the tough breaks dished
out by the Baby Blsons of Great Falls and therefore were defeated by a score of 14 to 0
The championship of Chouteau County was held Jointly this year by Big Sandy
and Fort Benton each having a score of six points when the game ended The Long
horns were first to gam their six pomts but were unable to hold the margin as in the
third quarter B10 Sandy gained the tie score along with the F B H S gridders Thus
the football season came to a close by the two old rivals holding Jointly the championship
of Chouteau County
During the whole season the Lon horns scored fourteen touchdowns against ten
for their opponents scored 83 points to 66 made by their opponents won four tied
two and lost two games

But number one by three may pass
Here they come clown the stretch
Number three 15 wav ahead
And beats the thlrd one by a neck
But number one comes up by heck
Now the wxnners go collect
The odds were s1x to one
But walt eyeaythmg IS a mxstake
Number one was dlsquallfled at he
Now thls IS bad they all agree
For they all seemed happy as could be
Except the losers whose man had lost
But eyery runner cant w1n at any cost
Slmperlng Sue stands 1n the hall
Her teeth are blg her eyes are small
Her ha1r IS red her freckles p1nk
Her SOICB gurgles l1ke the kltchen sxnk
Now dont get Slmperlng Susy wrong
Shes the belle of the school her charm
For eyerywhere that Susy goes
Follows belund a host of beaux
She doesnt eat yeast or use Lux soap

Oh we all l1ke Sue the g1ggl1ng lass

The tme has come to put a stop
To the u e of 011 on the Jamtors mop
Your 11fe IS worth le s than a dlme
When you re trun to make a class on
And you sllp and s11de and fall
Thlee fourths of the wav down the 1 11
Its really funny when 1tS someone else
Bu' worse than murder when 1 s 1
So Ixe come to the brxght conclus on
And I know IIS not just an 11lu lon
That some of our br1ght lxttle boss
The1r mothers pr1de and Joys
Should 1n1ent a new k1nd of brake
So our IIYGS arent always at stale
