We also like to think of the students who have one or two or even three more years to spend here, and we envy them. lt is for this reason that we, the senior class of 1946, have published this Pioneer so that we can always have something to cherish the memories of our years in high school and the friends we knew there. DEDICATIQQNI To you parents who have guided those most impressionable years of our lives goes our most sincere gratitude. We, the class of 1946, appreciate the time spent on making us what we are today. We hope that you are proud to say of us, wfhat is my son," or 'That is my daughter," for that is a goal towards which We have striven. To you, therefore, we dedicate this 1946 Pioneer.

SCI-IOQL BQARD It is my hope that Fort Benton Schools have assisted the home and the community in adequately preparing you for the living which lies ahead of you. Keep in mind that life need not be a "struggle for existence" but rather a joyous encouter with the adven- ture of life.

For initiation they had to dress as children, and carry teddy bears or dolls. The girls had their hair in 5 pig tails and the boys wore hair ribbons and make-up. Although there really isn't much activity for the freshman class, they went through the regular routines of giving a return party for the seniors, and in the spring the whitewashing of the When the seniors wouldn't help, the freshies took it upon themselves to shine up the "B" and have a picnic. Thus ended the first year as the "green" freshman. SOPHOMORE YEAR President ,. . H W s,,,s,,,,, . ,,s,s,,,,,, Steve McSweeney Vice-president , ,, , , , , Don Huffman Secretary-treasurer ,,,.. Mary Lou Cooper Sponsor ,, ,, ,,,,,, .,,,,,, ,,A,,,,,,, M i ss Verna Young This year proved to be a little more interesting for the students, at least they were on their way to the top. The sophomores began to show they had some talent in their class. Jack Lepley became an asset to the basketball team. Emogene KAndersonJ Katzenberger was a member of the cheerleading group. Bernice Cooper and Shirley Spear were two of the high school's baton twirlers. One April evening the class had a party at school where they danced old-time folk dances. Then the time came when the "sophs" put away their books and waited patiently for their junior year of school.

This year, Thespians, Cannon Report Staff, and Quill and Scroll were open to juniors for their membership. Just before Thanksgiving vacation, the junior class gave a party at which everyone dragged out their jeans and plaid shirts, loggers and corn cob pipes-yes, it was the Junior Barn Dance. The gym was decorated with straw and the lights turned low. The stage was fixed like a corral, in which there was a big keg of cider for the thirsty dudes. The juniors held a farewell party for Mary Lou Cooper. The boys furnished the lunch and planned the program. Donald Archer and Raymond York were lost from the junior class when they enlisted in the armed forces. When Kenneth Scott dropped school in March, Charles Behrens took on the duties of president. and Charles Stewart was elected vice-president. Then came the day when the juniors put on the class play, "Best Foot Forward," a Broadway hit by John Cecil Holm and directed by Miss Mildred Glover. The gym was decorated for the junior prom on April 27, with pine trees and a make-believe mountain on the stage, the theme being "Springtime in the Rockies." Bob Nelson's orchestra furnished the music. Barbara Ellis was queen, Ann Katzenberger, senior attendant, Caroline Postill, junior attendant, Phyllis Birkeland, sophomore attendant, and Betty Breiter, freshman attendant. The juniors lost a classmate when Dick Arnst completed his high school work in three years and graduated in the spring with the class of '45. Once again the class put away their work of a happy and eventful year to wait for their last year when they would be seniors.

This year was full of activities in which many of the seniors participated. First of all, they had their chance to initiate the freshmen into high school, and then to attend the return party given by the "frosh." With about six weeks of rehearsal, the seniors presented the annual senior play, which was "The Man Who Came To Dinner." This play was directed by Miss Mildred Glover. This year many of the senior boys were on the football and basketball teams. Some of the seniors were members of student council, pep club, baton twirling, and in debate teams. Also, some of the members of the senior class went to Bozeman for school week on May 2, 3, and 4. On April 25, the seniors escorted the "frosh" with their brooms and whitewash, up the hill to give a little shine to the "B." On May 7, the school was a little different-it was the seniors' sneak day. They took one school bus and had a picnic in the Shonkin mountains. The night of May 9, a class night was given for the enjoyment of the seniors. At this time a comedy "short" of the seniors' past, present, and future was given. Also, the different awards were presented to the high school students. At baccalaureate, May 19, Reverend Wallace Smith and Reverend Earle McKnight were the speakers. A program by the students was given at commencement on Wednesday, May 22. After the last night, the seniors, gladly yet sadly, bade the under- classmen goodbye and wished them happy years at FBI-IS. CLASS PROPHECY December 25, 1966 Fort Benton-JACK LEPLEY and CHARLES BEHRENS, those two medical geniuses of Fort Benton, are spending Christmas with their wives and children. It is the first time they have seen them since they started experimenting on palpacosis of the brain from which their former classmate DEAN FISHER, the comedian of all time, is suffering. Nothing has been discovered and DEAN has disappeared. His close friend and fellow freight train rider, DON POGREBA, has been conducting an investigation as to his whereabouts, but so far has found nothing. POGIE. you may have heard, is the honorary Prince of India, because of his having 621 wives. JOHN HANKINS was running a close second with 620 wives until 10 of his wives disappeared. We fear there may have been foul play, but we can't be sure. Lorna-FAY ALLARD was killed instantly today while trying to be with JEAN LUNDY more. JEAN had climbed to the top of the Loma Store trying to catch up with DON HUFFMAN for Sadie Hawkins day. This however, was made impossible by DON'S use of CHARLES STEWART'S newest invention, the "human wings." CHARLES discovered these while trying to protect his daughter from kidnappers, lby the way, little "Breezy" looks more like her mother every dayl. Shonkin-ED McCAFFERTY is doing alright on his Shonkin farm. For each new wife, he builds a new house. They have a regular little village now. BERNARD BACH and CALVIN TAYLOR have recently tried to acquire all of the land in Montana. If they succeed, they will change the name to the State of BAYTLORACH to include both names. DAN HAZEN has broken the record of getting to his girl friend at Highwood. He got his little jalopy up to a speed of 130 miles per hour. Atlantic City-ROLLY HYATT has stated that he has flirted with more than 1,000 girls. He says that he likes flirting so much, he doesn't think that he will ever get married. LESTER DeBRUlN has finally found his ideal girl-3'4" tall with green hair and purple eyes. They went to visit King Tut's tomb in Egypt for their honeymoon. New York-From a local newspaper, it is seen that PATTY UHL has just been com- mitted to Sing Sing prison for murdering her seventh husband. GENEVIEVE SIEBENALER is in the hospital being treated for compound fractures which she received while trying to balance herself on a pin head and twirl her baton. Geraldine-CAROLINE KPOSTILLJ HILTON recently gave a birthday party for the oldest of her three sets of quadruplets. Carter-STEVE McSWEENEY, long-time janitor of the Carter post office, recently resigned to spend the rest of his life on pension. The reason he gave for his resig- nation is that too many people disturbed him. Big Sandy-KATHERINE ROWE went walking the other day and failed to return. Her two old maid companions, HELEN NELSON and BERYL MORROW, went to find her and when they couldn't they were so disturbed that they both jumped in the river. Washington, D. C.-SHIRLEY SPEAR and EWELL HANKINS were recently voted the most happily married couple in the U. S. A. As a result they, and their fifteen darling little children were given a free trip around the world. Warm Springs-SHIRLEY KLAY recently suffered a collapse of her mind. She had just completed her thirteenth set of encyclopedias. SHIRLEY always said that thirteen was her unlucky number. Chicago-EMOGENE CANDERSONJ KATZENBERGER has just opened her style shop. She has designed all the clothing herself and has some beautiful models. The other day she asked ERNEST SCHULTZ, a buyer, if he spent as much time in other stores as he does in hers. He answered, "No. they don't have such beautiful models." Salt Lake City--CHARLES BRADLEY is one of the most sought after life guards in Salt Lake. People are always drowning conveniently near. DOLORES TOPE is still trying to beat the world record in typing. BETTY TERRY gave it up some time ago, in favor of a domestic scene. Philadelphia-MIRIAM GESSAIVEAN has just finished her ninety-seventh volume of "Corny Jokes." When people ask her if some of them aren't duplicated. she just tells them no, it isn't possible, she can't remember anything that long. Berlin-RICH MERCURIO recently assumed command of the German Marine Corps. This was organized for the purpose of keeping the German people from settling down to the non-aggression policy. New York-Handsome RALPH GUY has just returned from merry old England with another stage success to his credit. He starred in GUY WILLSON'S version of the old masterpiece, Hamlet. But the trouble is, GUY believes in using more ham in his plays. LU LU BEECHER has just received medical attention at the hospital as she fell while doing her last number in the burlesque show and broke her fingernail. Chicago--PAUL KSHORTYJ SHOGREN has been taking vitamin A pills to enable him to play against seven foot Bob Kurland from Oklahoma A. 8: M. According to last reports he was hitting the measuring stick at six feet nine and one-half inches. The little Shogrens have taken after their mother and PAUL is disappointed as they won't be tall enough to see the basket. CLASS WILL FAY ALLARD wills her shyness to Patty Stewart. Fay says that, since she move-d to Loma, she has no need for it. Use it sparingly in company, Patty. BERNARD BACH wills his pug nose to Mary Ellen. He says that his sniffer has been very serviceable in the mountain air: so take care of it, "Pudgy." EVELYN BEECHER wills her giggle to Olive Lane. As this has been very useful to Evelyn, please don't lose it, Olive. CHARLES BEHRENS wills his wavy hair to Donavan Bixby. If wave set won't do it. Donavan, you might try using bear grease. BERNICE COOPER wills her ability on the Cannon Report to Bertie June Hankins- from one editor to another. Keep up the good work, Bertie. DEAN FISHER wills his ability to play pinochle and pool to Bob-just to keep it in the family. He also wills to Bob his trusty shotgun so that he may shoot many geese. MIRIAM GESSAMAN wills her graceful gait and baby face to Betty Breiter. As these have served Miriam through four years of high school, she hopes that they will do you as much good, Betty. ' RALPH GUY wills his ability to get high scores in typing speed tests to his good friend and loyal companion, Kenneth Clark.

Mrs. .Tone Wiberg was their sponsor, replaced by Mr. Royal Morrison when Mrs. Wiberg resigned at the end of the first semester. A number of the junior boys took a part in both football and basketball games. Mary Ellen Ennis and Marjorie Laulo were two of the cheerleaders this year. In November, the juniors sponsored a dance. About basketball season, the junior class went into the selling of little red hats with "FB" on them, and red pins with "Yea Benton" painted in white on them. Later on, they sold pennants. Four junior boys were on the "A" basketball team, Chris Small lcaptainl, Jim Elliot, Bob Kelley, and Elmer Hotvedt. In January, Phyllis Birkeland and Chris Small were elected to be members of the student council. At the Carnival, Phyllis Birkeland and Chris Small were junior candidates, Chris being crowned King. Several of the junior girls were baton twirlers and Bertie June Hankins was chosen to be editor of the Cannon Report next year. Near the end of May, the juniors put away their studies to await the coming year when they would at last be the seniors of FBHS. 4 JUNIOR PROM The annual junior promenade was held this year on April 26, in the high school gym. Upon entering the gym, the dancers saw a blue sky full of stars-a rock wall was built entirely around the dance floor, with sky scrapers in the background, the theme being the "Penthouse Serenade." The orchestra, which was Bunny Leeper's from Great Falls, was enclosed in an oval-shaped shell on the stage, with a large moon behind it. The attendants were handed small blue programs decorated in silver, which carried out the theme. The class chose a Queen who was crowned as the climax of the evening. It was impossible to serve punch because they could not obtain supplies, but with dancing from 9 to 1:30, the juniors were happy of their success of an annual prom. JUNIOR PLAY On April 18, after three weeks of very strenuous rehearsing, the junior class presented "Charley's Aunt" the always popular comedy-farce by Brandon Thomas. The set for the play was a college in England. The plot is as follows: Jack Chesney Uohn Deckl and his friend, Charles Wykeham KLeonard Spearl invite Kitty Verdum lGenevieve Leningtonl and Amy Spettigue lOlive Lanel to join them at their rooms for luncheon in order to meet Donna Lucia D'Alvadorez, who is expected to arrive from Brazil that very moment. This is Charley's aunt, a lady who in her youth went to South America, married a man with tons of money. and has come back to merry old England to spend it. The girls accept the invitation but the millionaire Donna sends a telegram saying that she will have to defer her visit for a few days. The problem is solved at once by forcing another undergraduate of the name of Lord Fancourt Babberly lBob Dolll into a black satin skirt, a lace tichu, etc. As Charley's aunt this old trump is introduced to the sweethearts, to Jack's father, Sir Francis Chesney lKenneth Clarkl, and to Stephen Spettigue Names Elliotl an Oxford solicitor. Charley's aunt becomes the object of the greatest solicitude and devotion of the young women, and both Sir Francis Chesney and Stephen Spettigue make love to her. Un- expectedly, the real Donna Lucia lMargaret Heinenl turns up, but upon hearing that someone has taken her place she assumes the name of Mrs. Beverly Smythe. As the third act progresses Donna Lucia makes Lord Babberly reveal who he really is and then tells the rest of the suitors and admirers who she really is. Sir Francis Chesney then proceeds to court! her and as the third act ends they are engaged to be married. Other juniors in the cast were: Brassett, a college scout lFranklin Elliottl, a young farmer, lBob Kelleyl. Ela Delahay, an orphan and the ward of Donna Lucia lMary Ellen Ennisl, and Maud, a parlourmaid for Spettigue, CPhyllis Birkelandl. SGPHS FIRST ROW: Raymond Allard, Jim Arnst.

Bob Fisher. vice-president. and Elna Cooper, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Jack M'cGuin was class sponsor. This year several of the sophomore boys were on the football and basketball teams. Arnold Campbell and Paul Craig made their letters in football while Donald Morger made his letter in basketball. Rita Loundagin and Julia Siebenaler were flag swingers and Margaret Farrington was a baton twirler. Patty Stewart was one of the cheer- leaders. At the carnival, Bob Fisher and Betty Breiter were candidates from the sophomore class, Betty being crowned Carnival Queen. On March twenty-ninth. the sophomores sponsored their annual dance. Everybody patched their clothes and got out their long skirts and went to the "Hobo Shuffle." The stage was decorated with straw and a booth was set up where hot dogs and punch were sold. Although the sophomore year is usually the inactive year of a high school career the sophomores can feel justly proud of the accomplishments in this, their second year in FBHS. . COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT Probably one of the most hard working departments in school is the commercial department. This department, under the supervision ot Mrs. C. W. Schmidt. works many long hours on the mimeographing ot play programs. menus, and posters. Many times the request for such work to be done comes at a time when the department is at its busiest turning out the Cannon Report and thus adds many more hours of hard work. Although commercial students and their teacher sometimes consider theirs a thankless task the entire school appreciates their patience and tireless cooperation.

Two weeks after school started they were given their formal initiation by the seniors. They had to dress as freaks, half man and half woman., one high heel shoe and one low heel shoe, and with makeup on one side of their face and none on the other. On September twenty-second initiation was held in gym when the "frosh" were persuaded to do a few stunts. After the initiation a dance was held. For their officers the freshmen selected George Cowie as president, Virgil Allison. vice-president. and Earl Granger as secretary-treasurer. Miss Juanita Spaulding was chosen as class sponsor. On April twenty-fifth the freshmen, armed with hoes and brooms, gave the "B" its annual cleaning and whitewashing, aided of course by the ever present seniors. After the task was finished the seniors and freshmen had a picnic in the park, lunch being provided by the freshmen girls. With this the freshmen ended their first year in FBHS. THE PHOTOGRAPHERS This year the ping-pong and group pictures were taken. as in former years. by Umphress Studio of Black Eagle, Montana. The Seniors would personally like to thank Mr. Umphress for his tireless effort. work, and helpful hints, which added life and interest to our Annual. The Senior and Faculty portraits were taken by the Hester-Zuck Studio of Billings. Montana. Their fine work aided us greatly in our Annual. and we wish to thank them most sincerely for their time, effort and suggestions. THE PUBLISHERS For all the grief and misery to which we have put The River Press in the publish- ing of our Annual, we offer our sincerest apologies. If it were not for the tireless work of Mr. Joel Overholser and Miss Nora Harber. our Annual never would have been completed. Mr. Overholser's advice and many years of knowledge were invaluable in doing a seemingly impossible task. The River Press, in addition to publishing the Annual, prints tickets. programs and other things necessary for school functions.

It numbers over twenty-five hundred chapters, and nearly titty thousand young journalists from schools which are outstanding in the quality of their work. wear the gold of the society. The society has taken an active part in encouraging and rewarding individual achievement in journalism and in raising the standards in this field. Outstanding journalists and educators support the society and endorse its program. It publishes a bi-monthly magazine for its members. Membership may be secured only through a local chapter. Members must, at the time of their election be of at least junior standing, be in the upper third of their class scholastically, have done superior work in some phase of journalism, be recommended by the supervisor or the committee governing publication. be editor of the high school year book, and must be approved by the Executive Secretary. To secure a charter for Quill and Scroll, a high school must publish a newspaper, an annual, or a magazine which is considered meritorious by the executive council. The Charles E. Russell Chapter of Quill and Scroll was granted to Fort Benton High School about 1928: but did not receive its formal title from the national organi- zation until 1940.

Membership was open to all who participated in an organized musical activity in school, such as band, chorus, baton twirling, or flag swinging. Club membership fees were fifty cents per semester. Within the music club was formed another organization. more difficult to be admitted to, Lyre's Club. To become a member of Lyre's Club. a student must have been a letterman in B-C-D-F under the new point system set up by Mr. Jack McGuin, music director. This is the club we will all endeavor to belong to. Perhaps the most outstanding event of the school year was the Music' Club Carnival. put on by the Music Club on March first. The purpose was to raise money for new band uniforms. There was 51129.14 taken in for uniforms. Next year we hope to buy robes for the chorus. jmglii CLUB FIRST ROW: Carley Biamlette, Mary Ellen Ennis, Marjorie Laulo, Betty Breiter SECOND ROW: Bob Lundy, Jennie Jenkinson, Beryl Morrow, Jean Lundy.

The officers elected were: President, Steve McSweeney: vice-presi- dent, Charles Stewart: and secretary-treasurer, Shirley Spear. The Pep Club went all out for basketball and really supported the team. The club was formed after the football season was over, but the football team did not lack in supporters. The club, this year, sold hot dogs and made programs for every home game. The receipts from these undertakings were good for a new organization, working at a new task. The club arranged to sit in a certain section in our home gym so that they could support the boys with all the spirit they had. They also accompanied the team to neigh- boring towns and in most cases showed more spirit than the opponent's own supporters did. All in all, the school and the club were proud of their efforts to cheer our team to victory.

The concert band played many varied programs for Junior Woman's Club, Senior Woman's Club, before and between the acts of Pep Parade, and played outdoor concerts in the park in the spring. From the sixty-piece concert and marching band, a thirty-piece pep band was selected to play for basketball games. This pep band and the six baton twirlers and two flag swingers put on many colorful exhibitions during the basketball season. Perhaps one of the high lights was the lighted baton act at the basketball tourney. With playing for football games, pep rallies, basketball games, and parades, the band was kept pretty busy. Winter season was high-lighted with a music club carnival to raise money for purchasing complete uniforms. The band looks pretty natty! in their new red and white uniforms. Spring kept them busy with festivals in Great Falls, Missoula, Havre, and Billings. The Junior band of forty-two members made rapid progress in both playing and marching and will augment the band for next year. BAND FIRST ROW: Genevieve! Siebenaler SECOND ROW: Rita Loundagin, Margaret Farrington, Margaret Frieling, Naomi Seright, Marjorie Frieling, Julia Siebenaler Third from left omitted from second row: Patty St. Peter FBHS had a large group of twirlers this year, including two flag swingers. These girls put in many long hours of practice throughout the year and by the time of the music festival at Missoula they were quite proficient in the art of baton twirling. The girls twirled at almost every home basketball game and often went to other towns with the pep band and put on a grand performance. Perhaps the highlight of the baton twirlers performances was when three of the girls twirled with lighted batons at the sub-district tournament. The girls are to be commended for the time and work that they put into their twirling acts so that they would be as good as possible. All of the girls, with the exception of Genevieve Siebenaler, will be here next year to carry on where they left off this year. This group of baton twirlers is under the instruction and supervision of Mr. Jack McGuin. mmm TWIRLERS I-'IRST ROW: Marjorie Frieling, Margaret Heinen. Phyllis Birkeland. Mardelle Rowe.

Stanley, played by Jack Lepley and Genevieve Siebenaler. June Stanley, played by Caroline Postill, and Richard Stanley, played by Rolly Hyatt, were also members of the household: with Dan Hazen as John, the servant, and Shirley Klay, as Sarah, the cook, added to the exciting comedy. Mr. Sheridan Whiteside, portrayed by Charles Behrens, came to have dinner with the Stanleys, only to fracture his hip upon entering the house. Therefore, he had to extend his visit.

Franklin Elliott, Lyle McKeever, Ewell Hankins. Robert Deck During the school year there are a great many educational movies received that must be shown to the students. As there is no one hired to run the projector it is operated by a group of students who have shown by volunteering that they are inter- ested in this type of work. Tom Wood has been the chief projectionist for the past two years and tor a time did the task by himself until volunteers were asked for and several of the students responded. The boys have all learned how to run the projector and the sound machine and as all of them will be back next year there will be a good crew to keep the movies coming. MGUIE PRCBQEQTQR ORATORICAL CONTEST Many activities went on in the speech department this year. Members from both classes started out with pantomimes, making speeches, reading for expression, and then to their first public performance. On October 10, the dedication of the Lewis and Clark Monument was given by the Speech classes. Charles Behrens gave the history of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and Guy Willson dedicated the marker. Bernice Cooper led the speech classes in a pledge to the marker. Next came the American Legion Oratorical Contest for high school students. Both classes prepared a 10-12 minute speech on "The Constitution In Our Everyday Life" for class work and the eight best ones were given before the public. The students giving their orations were Steve McSweeney, Charles Stewart, Charles Behrens, Rich Mercurio, Betty Vinion, Doris Willson, Bernice Cooper, and Jack Lepley. The judge was Mr. Edmond T. Anderson, of Great Falls. Rich Mercurio placed first, Charles Stewart, second, and Jack Lepley, third. After Rich joined the Marines. Charles Stewart represented Chouteau County in the district contest in Great Falls, March 18, and placed second. Bill Kotz. of Great Falls, placed first in the district, in the zone, and took second place in the regional contest. The students appreciate this opportunity for experience and hope they will con- tinue to have it in the years to come. DEBATE At the beginning of the year, the speech classes carried out informal discussions. Several of the juniors held a discussion of "Atomic Power and Its Uses" before the Kiwanis Club. Debate occupied the most of the time in the classes during the month of March. The classes had four debate teams-Charles Behrens and Jack Lepley, Charles Stewart and Bob Murray, Bernice Cooper and Miriam Gessaman, and Rolly Hyatt and Margaret Heinen. These teams went to Havre to debate on March ll, and were hosts to Havre and Great Falls for a debate on March 13. A debate tournament was held in Great Falls on April 27. SPEECH CLASS PLAYS Two groups of one-act plays were given this year. The first group was presented on March S, 1946. These were "Submerged," "A Minuet," "Overtones," and "Time For Everything." The second group was given on March 15. These were "Balcony Scene," "Sham," "Late Holiday," and "Fantasy On An Empty Stage." Miss Mildred Glover was the director of the plays.

LESTER DeBRUIN: Gus was our head manager and it was 'his duty to see that everything was as it should be. It was his duty to see that the field was lined, that water was supplied during games, and that the boys were supplied with towels. The Longhorns had a bad start in their 1945 football season by dropping their first game to Chinook by a 13-12 decision. They next tangled with their close rival, the reserves of Great Falls. The Longhorns hit their stride and defeated the reserves 32-6. Coach Morrison took over October 8, and looked upon 33 fine ball players. As he used his style of play, many of the boys thought they were mistreated and quit, but the men stayed and had the patience to see just what Morrison had in store for them in the coming weeks. In the Conrad game, Fort Benton looked good all of the way, but poor conditioning enabled Schlepp to run by the Longhorns for a 12-B victory. At St. Mary's. the following Saturday. after a week of hard work, the team was organized and that day everything seemed to work, defeating St. Mary's, 19-6. The next week we traveled to Malta. They were light, hard chargers and played football for the love of it. We won, 19-0. In a hard-fought contest with Chinook, to regain our lead in the district, both teams fought evenly and only Pogreba's fake drop kick. which Fisher took over as a line-drive, enabled us to defeat them, 13-12. Because of a tie, we had to play St. Mary's again. This time, we journeyed there, to play under the lights at Great Falls. St. Mary's had the will to win, and Fort Benton did not have their usual drive, therefore, St. Mary's passed at will, ran through our line time and again, but ill-winds gave them the loser end of a 7-6 score. This win gave Fort Benton the Judith Basin District Championship. On November 24, Fort Benton played Conrad for divisional honors. Conrad, with the exception of Schlepp, who twisted a knee, played at Fort Benton. The first half, Conrad scored easily through a seven man line, and ran the extra point over. The second half showed an inspired Fort Benton team. They scored immediately on off tackle smashes but failed to make the extra point. The rest of the game was all Fort Benton's, driving Conrad, time and time again, into the shadows of their own goal post, but costly fumbles, incompleted passes and other tough breaks saw Conrad on the top side of a 7-6 win, thus completing a very satisfactory season. FOQTBALL FIRST ROW: Chris Small, Dean Fisher, Paul Shogren, Jack Lepley, James Elliot SECOND ROW: Coach: Mr. Royal Morrison, Don Pogreba, Arnold Campbell, Bob Kelley, Charles Bradley, Elmer Hotvedt, Don Morger, Managers: Charles Behrens, Rich Mercurio The Longhorns played a strenuous season during the 45-46 season, playing 30 games and winning 26 of them. This year's rampaging herd set a, new record for future Longhorns to aim at by winning 20 consecutive games before losing to Shelby 50 to 44 KShelby placed second in the "B" class at the state tournamentl. The Longhorns downed Belt in the first fray of the season and then rolled through the Alumni, Power, Choteau, Centerville, Great Falls Legion, Fairfield, Big Sandy, Geraldine, Belt, Morris Sporting Goods, and Big Sandy in that order. The next week the county tournament was played in Highwood with Fort Benton winning easily over Big Sandy for the championship. The next week the Longhorns played their most strenuous week-end when they played Fairfield at home and then traveled to Cut Bank and Choteau defeating all three teams. Finally the Longhorns met defeat when they met the once defeated Shelby Coyotes on Shelby's home floor. This was rated as one of the best games of the season. The next thing on the bill was the tournaments. In the sub-district, Fort Benton won over Centerville and St. Mary's for the championship. The next week the Longhorns went to the district tournament where they won their first two games over Cascade and Fairfield. On the third and final night the Longhorns could not seem to click and lost a tough decision to Choteau by a score of 25 to 24. This placed them in the regional tournament at Shelby two weeks later. In their first game against Stanford the Longhorns won by a large margin and this pitted them against the Shelby Coyotes. Although the game was nip and tuck all the way, the Coyotes came out on top of a 43 to 37 score. By losing to Shelby they had to play Conrad in a morning game. This game brought some measure of revenge for the beating meted out by Conrad. in football. In the last game the Longhorns played Choteau and after playing three hard games, they could not put up the fight necessary to win. Thus ended one of the most successful basketball seasons in the history of Fort Benton High School.

These They see that the team has towels, clean the balls, pack the suits for trips, handle the game records, shots, fouls, percentages, etc., and take care of the team in general. All three are seniors and will be greatly missed next year. This was the most cooperative team I have ever coached or been around. Their cooperation in training, following advice, and being men instead of boys in many cases was the real reason for win- ning twenty-six games and losing only four games. It was the reason also for winning twenty consecu- tive games. COACH MORRISON TRACK This year the Longhorns had the largest turnout for track in many years. The track team entered the meets at Great Falls and Havre during the first part of the season and then participated in the state track meet at Missoula on May 16, 17, and 18. We were glad to see such an interest in track this year and hope that this interest will continue for many years to come so that FBHS may again measure up to its previous high standards and good records in track.

ATHLETIC uma Betty Breiter, Mary Ellen Ennis, Patty Stewart, Carley Bramlette, Marjorie Laulo CHEERLEADERS This year's cheerleaders were under the direction of Jack McGuin, and improved greatly over last year. Two veterans who led the cheerleaders were Mary Ellen Ennis. junior, and Patty Stewart, sophomore. Three new cheerleaders were chosen to help these girls. They were Marjorie Laulo, junior, Betty Bwreiter, sophomore, and Carley Bramlette, freshman. These girls followed the team on many of their out-of-town games in football and basketball. The team and schoollare proud of their cheerleaders for the support which they showed their team. At all the basketball games away from home, the cheerleaders. aided by the Pep Club and Pep Band, and the rooters from Fort Benton, seemed to drown out the other schools. As a costume the girls wore white sweaters and white skirts. All of the girls will be back to cheer next year's team on to victory. ,4nn11 BASEBALL Baseball was reorganized in Fort Benton this year as part of a plan to bring the sport back to popularity in the state of Montana.

Mr. Royal Morrison was the coach of the team. SOFTBALL Softball was offered to the boys as a part of the physical education program of the school this year. There were about thirty students that reported for practice regularly twice a week.
