Student body president was Jim Togeas with Jerry Harris as vice-president and Myrna Tubbs and Connie Fellers as secretaries. Faculty advisor was Mr. Clair Culver with Miss Mary Boxwell as assistant advisor. There were ten standing committees this year including the auditorium, executive, and service committees. Among their many proiects, these committees took care of the lights, checked lockers, U In Action polished trophies, and posted names in the gym for the basketball and wrestling games. They also put on three very successful school parties. The new committees were the handbook and code committees. The handbook committee prepared a handbook to be given to each new student that enters Fort Dodge Senior High. Members worked throughout the year on this project, trying to answer questions covering every phase ot our school lite.

For the past three years, they have sponsored the foreign students who have attended our school. This year the council sponsored Gregory Zerfer- idis from Lekani Village, Greece. Plans were made for another Amer can Field Service student to at- tend Fort Dodge Senior High School next year. Fort Dodge students were hosts to thirty-six Amer- ican Field Service students from surrounding areas who assembled here before their departure to their home land. The council was active in state and district or- ganizations. Executive committee members at- tended the state convention at Ames October 13, and the North Central District Meeting at Webster City on April 13.

It Was Anything But English Three foreign language clubs lent that cosmo- politan air to the halls of the high school. Latin enthusiasts called themselves the S.P.Q.R., and although the group was small, their activities were varied. From translating Virgil's "Aeniad" to initiation of six dew members and the prepara- tion for the traditional Latin Banquet, it was a busy year. Another equally active group was the pur- suers of Espanol. The Fiestas Sin Siestas held monthly meetings to further interest and knowl- edge of our neighbors to the South. San Souci was made up of a small group of sec- ond year French students. They decided to have luncheons in connection with their monthly meet- ings. Each of the clubs participated in the Home- coming activities and Friendship Week. 725- st xc Ss fi X ' si v X X N- if -..

Here we see Lucille Halli- gan, Sharon Porter, Carol Loftus, Diane Van Scoy, Dean Larsen and Georgeann Whitte- more. They directed the activities of the Pep Club, the core of Dodger spirit. Contests were held at the weekly pep assemblies to determine which of the three classes gave forth with the loudest yells. "Vic", the toy dog, was awarded to the winning class. Sev- eral new cheers were inaugurated and quickly adopted by the students. Snappy Formations Highlighted Half-Times Highlighting the half-time shows at Dodger through its paces.

One of these was the sax quartet. Morning re- hearsals were necessary to prepare for per- formances. Many requests for music were received and the group was always willing. Members found e-nioyment and experience in their playing. Another group was the violin quartet. These girls practced hard every Tuesday and Thursday morning. Chords had to be melodious and rlcythm was checked to be sure everyone was playing on the right beat. Playing without piano accompaniment was a new experience. Repertoire was con- stantly increased and several performances were given. FROM TOP TO BOTTOM: VIOLIN QUARTET-Marie Butler, Rae Burch, Alverna Nelson, Norrta Lou Weiss.

Service Was The Y-Teen Password Claiming the largest membership of any club in school, the Y-Teens functioned mainly as a ser- vice organization. They started the year with a tea for every girl who wanted to come. At Thanks- giving, they collected canned goods for the Sal- vation Army. For their Christmas proiects, the Y-Teens sold winter corsages and sent Christmas cards to the residents of Friendship Haven. They had many interesting and informative programs. Mrs. Meyers and the librarians reported on some of the new books and at Christmas time, they had a demonstration on how to attractively wrap packages. Mrs. Tellier helped the girls to analyze their personalities, and a representative from Seraphine's gave the girls some hints on how to be glamorous. Brotherhood week was another project of the Y-Teens. Three ministers from dif- ferent denominations gave inspirational speeches to the student body. To offices the girls elected Mary Hepperle as president, Marie Butler as vice president, Alice Davenport as secretary, and De- lores Babbit as treasurer. Miss Wilma Hastie was their faculty advisor. Every girl was a member of one or more committees. Y-TEENS-Row I: Fletcher, Ricke, Reynolds, Carey, Babbitt, Gaffey, Wertz, Geer, K. McGowan. Row II: M.

Students Prepared F r Their Future Many of the girls in high school having teach- ing aspirations were encouraged to ioin the Cadet Teachers' Club. Meeting every two weeks at noon, its program centered around preparation for teaching. As a project they made table favors and mats tor the children's wards at both hospitals at Christ- mas time. For the annual visitation day, the girls went to the city and rural schools where they observed the fundamentals ot teaching. Teachers and business- men gave them advice and counseled them on the various teaching fields.

The club was a guest ot Mercy Hospital tor their Career Day. Interesting talks were given by public health nurses, students from the hospi- tal, and the school doctor. For one ot their pro- grams, Dr. Dorsey gave some good pointers on what physicians expected of their nurses, and for another part ot their nursing program ,the club members conducted panel discussions. The club elected Kay Steinmaus as president, Mary Hepperle as vice president, and Karen Hanson as secretary-treasurer.

Membership was gained through acting in plays or by participating in stage crew. An exclusive few earned the highly-coveted gold F and letter guard which signified that they had earned twenty points on stage. Officers for the year were Sandi Whitlock, President: Sheila Dorton, Vice-President: Betty Ost- bloom, Secretary, and Donna En- nen, Treasurer. Under Mr. VVaterman's direc- tion, Thespians participated in one-act play night, the operetta, and their main project, the spring three-act play. Mr. Sewell and Mrs. Waldburger sponsored sev- eral plays with sophomore casts. Two ot these plays were put into an assembly, much to the enioy- ment of a delighted student body. It appears that political boss, Jack Worseldine is high pressuring Jim Togeas and Sandi Whitlock. "Good Housekeeping" "Good Housekeeping" by William McCleery, the story of what happens when an average American family gets an overdose of politics and psycho- somatic medicine, was presented as the annual Thespian three act play in the high school audi- torium on May 6.

Stars Were Born ln Year after year, one of the most eagerly waited for events on the dramatic calendar has been one- act- play night. This year proved to be no excep- tion. Three-highly entertaining comedies, "The Perfect Date", "Three on a Bench", presented by high school casts, and "The Mystery of Mouldy Manor", by an all iunior college cast, were pre- sented to a delightful audience composed of stu- dents and parents. A comedy number was "The Perfect Date". It was the story of a girl who won a date with Gene's out to do a little match-making of his own. Eddie Fisher and her conniving girl friends who tried to swindle Eddie away from her. The crown- ing blow came with the announcement of Eddie's marriage to Debbie Reynolds. "Three on a Bench" was the story of meddling Mrs. Moore, a self-appointed match-maker who was so busy making matches that she didn't have time to do any matching for herself. Special credit was given to Mr. Waterman and to the stage crew for preparing a very difficult set of props. Janet watches Jim go to the aid of a pair of tired feet.

Numerous per- formances are given by both groups for Civic organizations and to highlight A Cappella con- certs. Other members of A Cappella, J.C. choir, and Training choruses were given the opportunity to to participate in solo class. During the year, they met with their assigned accompanist from the piano class and prepared solos. Music instructors from the city were invited to listen and criticize the singers to help them gain poise and to better their voices. The sextet performed with the Nlen's Civic Glee Club.

The Magic Of Seventeen Booth Tarkington's "Seventeen", was selected as the musical comedy to be presented by the high school music department on March 25 and 26. Three weeks of strenuous rehearsal preceded the performances and during this time parts were polished to perfection, numbers were learned, and the various techniques of show business were Taught to the students by staff members of The music department, under The direction of Clayton Hathaway. Practically every organization in school, as well as several faculty members, had a hand in making This year's operetta a fine suc- cess. It was just another day for Willie Baxter until baby-talking Lola Pratt dropped in on May Parch- er for a summer visit in Indiana. Then Things really started to hum for The love-sick hero. He became a headache and a heartache for his parents, a Target for Torment from sister Jane, and The main source of competition for every other boy in the neighborhood. Details of growing up, which had before gone unnoticed, suddenly became all important as Willie did everything in his power to win the favor of Miss Pratt. There were num- erous obstacles ! parents who didn't understand, lack of money, and the cocky college man, George Crooper - all of these stood before him and he found that love really complicated his life, Only Mr. Genesis, an old colored servant, seemed to understand Willie, since he himself had been married at the early age of sixteen. As the summer drew to a close Willie discovered that his family had helped him to acquire the coveted dress suit, the only attire he thought suitable for Miss Pratt's presence. Having arrived at the fare- well party too late to dance with Miss Pratt, Wil- lie's summer romance reached its peak when Lola placed a goodby kiss on his cheek. AT the railroad, Genesis helped Willie to realize that although this may have been real love, it was gone forever, and that someday he would have the "most beautiful bride in Indiana." Picnics and parties gave the show a light- hearted air and lively tempos in both the dances and chorus numbers added To the gaiety of the performances College man Crooper learns of the charms of Wherever she goes Lola is always surrounded Genesis consoles lovesick Willie as he meets Indiana in the song "Hoosier Way." by a crowd of admiring boys. another obstacle in love George Crooper sings "Ooo Ooo Ooo Wrllre seems to be willing to try Sister Jane is about to confess another As the parents of teenagers, the Baxters What You Do to Me" for his anything to save face. of her mischievous acts. and Mr. Parcher share mutual problems.

It was their task to publish twelve hundred copies of the popular school paper twice a month. Little Dodgers were given to all holders of activity books or they could be purchased in the office. First item on the agenda for the enthusiastic iournal- ists was the election of the paper's capable co-editors, Max Koeper and Dean Larsen. Max and Dean worked with advisors Sophie Pappas and Margaret Flom to put out an interesting, well written paper. Co-editors were then chosen to head up the various sections of the paper. Barry Bennett, Larry Dunscornbe, and Bob Trimpl edited the sports page. Feature writing was headed by Karen Hanson, Sharon Halmrast, Georgia Paris, and Dorothy Lochner, and the news editors were Carolyn McCoy, Sandra Rogers, Kathy FROM TOP TO BOTTOM: June Crouse takes care of the business end of the paper with Miss Flom and Miss Pappas.

The Dodger Staff Learned An industrious but uniformed group of twenty- six students were selected in the spring of 1954 to constitute the Dodger Staff of l955. They knew nothing about producing a yearbook, but they were willing to learn. The rudiments of iournalism were presented by faculty advisor Clair Culver in a series of noon meetings last May. At first there seemed to be as many theme ideas as there were staff members, but eventually an agreeable idea was chosen, and the first evidence of staff unity and cooperation appeared. When school opened in the fall, the staff earn- Checking over the faculty and classes keeps Jane Welker, Joann Ricke, and Mary Hepperle busy. estly set out to sell yearbooks to at least ninety per cent of the student body. As in previous years, the incentive was to sell enough Dodgers to make it possible for the staff to produce a yearbook of the high caliber necessary for the National Scho- lastic Press Association's coveted All-American rating. A vigorous sales campaign proved success- ful and over one-thousand books were sold. With the business end of things well under way, several staff members took time out to at- tend the lowa High School Press Association con- vention on the campus of Iowa State College.

Deadlines seemed to be the eternal and ever- lasting headache. Scrambling for identifications, writing copy and captions, proof-reading time and time again, hurrying to get that last picture taken and that final copy typed, these were the things that the would-be journalists struggled to accom- plish each afternoon in room 8. Climaxing the year for the staffs of both the newspaper and tlne yearbook was the Journalism Banquet May 24. Highlight of the evening came when those attending got the first glimpse of the completed yearbook. This in itself is generally thought to be worth the price of the ticket. Yearbooks were distributed to the students iust a few days before summer vacation began. The main activity for these days was getting signa- tures. The staff agreed that they made up a much wiser group than they had the previous spring, and each of them appreciated fully every word and picture that lay between the cover of the yearbook.

Gridders Ended Up And Down FORT DODGE 25 CRETEN I4 Ground power shown by the Dodgers was a big factor in winning the season's opening game against Creten High of St. Paul, Minnesota. Tom Schwieger and John Walrod showed great prom- ise for future victories. FORT DODGE I7 DES MOINES TECH 7 In their second game of the season, the Dodg- ers downed Tech High of Des Moines I7 to 7. The Dodgers, seemingly controlling the game, were not able to score and fell behind 7 to O at the half. The home eleven, late in the third quarter, were spurred on by Boake Sell's defensive play- ing which Ied to two safeties and Schweiger's two T.D.'s. FORT DODGE 6 WEST WATERLOO I9 On a heavily drenched field, the Dodgers were handed a Homecoming defeat at the hands of a powerful West Waterloo club. It was the only game that the Dodgers were really outplayed by their opponents. FORT DODGE I3 EAST SIOUX CITY 33 East Sioux City dealt a hard blow to the Dodgers by downing them 33 to I3. Despite the lopsided score the home team was able to roll up yardage, but couldn't seem to tally. At the half, the Dodgers were behind 20 to O. In the second half they matched the raiders in both scoring and yardage making the game almost even statisti- cally. ,60- FORT DODGE 'I8 EAST WATERLOO 19 A hard-hitting Dodger squad, backed by Butch Waldburger's kicking, soared to an early lead. Two T.D.'s and a safety gave them a 16 to O half- time advantage. Three long runs by the Troians blotted out the thought of a victory. The Dodgers came back with another safety, but were stopped on a scoring drive as the game ended with the Trojans out ahead. FORT DODGE 9 AMES 40 Ames' power was iust too much for the Dodg- ers and they seemed to make no mistakes all evening. The Dodgers lust couldn't get together, but fought hard to the end. The only scoring for the Dodgers was done by Sells. FORT DODGE 'I9 FORT DODGE 7 MASON CITY 'I4 The Mohawks' superior aerial attack was the main cause for the Dodgers losing this closely knit game 14 to 7. The scoring started with John Walrod's 74 yard run which put the Dodgers in the lead 7 to O. However, the Mohawks regained the lead after two quick touchdowns and the Dodgers were unable to score again in spite of their long offensive drives. FORT DODGE I3 EAST DES MOINES 20 Jim Clark led the conference champs to a 20 to I3 victory over the home eleven. A fighting Dodger team more than doubled their opponents yardage, but lacked the scoring punch in this fast moving game. SHATTUCK ACADEMY 6 After a streak of hard luck, the everfighting Dodgers came back strong to tri- umph in their last game with Shattuck Academy. The line play showed signs of strength at times, while the charging backs ground out big gains all evening. TOM SCHWIEGER "Fats" Captain and Fullback Noteworthy Recognitions Boake Sells, the outstanding right end for the Dodgers, received a first team position on both I.D.P.A. and Jack North's All-State Elevens. Sells was also chosen on an All-American Prep Squad of 78 men. Tom Schweiger received honorable mention on both teams. Sells and Jim Rohden were placed on first and second team all conference, respectively. Phil Thompson, a high-spirited and fine offen- sive guard, was elected to captain the Dodgers next fall.

Dodgers Had Best Record ln 25 Years The Dodgers, coached by Connie Goodman, opened the season with four quick victories over Humboldt, Rockwell City, East Des Moines, and Algona. The fifth game saw a sharp Carroll team down the home five by 6 points. They rebounded back to drop Perry and the Big Six champs, West Waterloo. The Dodgers suffered their first con- ference defeats to East Waterloo and Mason City. Webster City, Spencer, and North Des Moines fell before a sharp-looking Dodger squad in the next two weeks. A revenge-seeking West Waterloo team and their cross-town rival, East, downed the Dodgers on the same weekend.

A fired-up Sioux City Heelan High took ad- vantage of their ability to sink free throws and took the District title from Fort Dodge, Although the home five didn't go as far in the tournament as they had hoped to, they posted the best record Fort Dodge has had in over 20 years. The biggest asset of the Dodgers was their re- serves. Honorary captain, Phil Joselyn, was the Dodgers main threat as he averaged over T8 points per game. Center Boake Sells came through with some fine rebounding and l5 points per game. All in all, the Dodgers had a fine year and a top notch squad. Time out for instructions.

District Title Highlights Season The grapplers started the season with four de- cisive wins over Eagle Grove, East Des Moines, North Des Moines, and Carroll. Then they went into a slight slump losing to West Waterloo and Britt in their next two meets. The boys got back in the winning circle by beating Mason City. They lost the next two sessions to Clarion and East Waterloo. Before the state and district tourna- ments opened, the Dodgers finished the dual meets by drubbing Algona and winning over a strong iowa Falls team by one point. ln these dual meets, the Dodgers scored 244 team points to T97 that were scored against them. After the dual competition was over, the Dodgers participated in the District Wrestling tour- nament at Clarion. Fort Dodge won the tourna- ment with a total of 76 team points. The points were collected by five first places and three sec- onds. The five firsts were Dennis Friederichs, 95 pounds, Jim Brainerd, lO3 pounds, Dee Brainerd, ll2 pounds, Bill Messerly, 154 pounds, and Sherwood Cartee, heavyweight. The three sec- onds consisted of George Musick, 120 pounds, David Church, l38 pounds, and Curt Davis, T65 pounds. Two weeks later, the Dodgers traveled to Cedar Falls with these eight district winners to partici- pate in the state meet. Four of the Dodgers were dropped in the preliminaries, but the remaining four went on to place in the meet. Dennis Fried- erichs took a second place, Bill Messerly and Sherwood Cartee placed fourth. Dee Brainerd came home with a state championship title under his belt in the ll2 pound division. Out of the eight boys who went to state, there were two freshmen, four iuniors, and two seniors. This makes the outlook for the Dodger squad next year very favorable. The Dodger matmen brought to a close a highly successful season with a seven win and four loss record in dual meets, a first place in the district meet, and a fifth place in the state meet. The Dodgers elected Curt Davis as their team captain. Curt is a senior this year. He had a TO win and l loss record. He placed second in the district meet, but was beaten in the state tournament. -72- FORT DODGE 3rd 25 34 32 37 I3 9 28 I4 4 29 I9 Ist SEASON RECORD OPPONENTS Eagle Grove Invitational , ,, , Eagle Grove 2222 ,s , I3 East Des Moines I5 North Des Moines , IO Carroll , , 8 , West Waterloo 28 Britt 28 Mason City I3 Clarion , 20 East Waterloo 33 Algona I I Iowa Falls I8 Wins - 4 Losses PAUL GREGERSON Student Manager B-SQUAD-Row I: Bob Ross, Gayle DeWinter, Chuck Stearns, Jerome Diamond, Dave Church, John Pollard, Jim Sanford Leon ard Jordison.

The Claws And Fangs The Panthers opened their season by whipping Luther Junior College of Wahoo, Nebraska. The Panthers crossed the double line in the first quar- ter, but after that they were stopped by Their own mistakes. Luther came back on two brilliant runs and were leading 12-7 with Time running out. The Panthers Then started a goalward march and ended it with Cochran going across standing up. The Panthers lost the game with Estherville Junior College. Because one of Estherville's play- ers was ineligible the game was declared a for- feit. In the Homecoming game, the Panthers fum- bled on the two yard line early in the first quarter and the Worthington club took advantage of ii and scored. The Panthers displayed a strong de- fense, stopping Worthington the rest of the even- ing. With four minutes to go, a pass spelled defeat forthe Panthers when they played Mason City. A second quarter pass was the reason for defeat when the Panthers played a return engagement with Luther Junior College. lt was the only score during a game where defenses were the factor. The J.C.'s had their big game of the season when they played unbeaten Northwestern Junior College. The Raiders got two quick touchdowns early in the first quarter. The Panthers scored early in the second quarter and with seven seconds left Northwestern managed to push across their third T.D. The Panthers ended its season in a blaze of glory by downing Waldorf Junior College 7-O. The Fort Dodge T.D. came in the third quarter when Schwabbauer fleet Panther's back, went around right end for 20 yards and the score. The defense displayed by the J.C.'s left little to be desired. The team had more spirit than in the past. -l56- X, -W-4--..-.....-....-ww-,-Munn-S g Q nggt -Ol mn M aw' wwwmqw.. 1 NW. CII- :UQ twaew' , V' AQ QW Cf The Panther Realm J.C.

Coach Townsend was blessed with a wealth of experi- enced ballplayers including two former Dodger stars and two returning lettermen. The only draw- back was height with the team averaging less than six feet. Fort Dodge Junior College opened their season against Grandview Junior College of Des Moines. The game was hard fought all the way, but Grand- view had too much height tripping the Panthers in their premiere 91-84. The game was a continu- ation of a 15 game losing streak of the year be- fore and wasn't to be ended until the final game of the season. Continuing their season the Panthers came up against teams where they gave sometimes as much as 3 to 4 inches in height at each position. The fighting J.C.'s from Fort Dodge never gave Marrs gets the rebound. up their spirit. They clashed with the taller teams and outfought them, but always they were at a disadvantage in height. In most of their games the Panthers had to hit on their first shot in order to stay in the game, for they seldom got more than one shot when they controlled the ball. Coach Townsend used all kinds of strategy, employing unorthodox offenses and continually changing the lineups. His efforts were rewarded in the season final against Mason City Junior College. This was the first time the Panthers met a team their own size and they were not to be denied. They com- pletely outplayed the hapless Troians to write a happy finish to the season 81-69. John Kudron, one of the stalwarts of the Pan- ther lineup, was the leading scorer for the season with 318 points for a 21.2 average per game over the 15 game route. The other points were spread out evenly among the other players.

The constant clicking of the typewriter fails to issue forth. No longer are there industrious people trying to rack their brains for that certain work that will lend the finishing touch to a good copy. As we leave the shop it is not with a feeling of dissatisfaction, but of having completed a iob which we hope you will consider well done. We have tried to give you an accurate and interesting account of the past year. We hope this year's Dodger gives you as much satisfaction as it has given us in presenting it to you.
